Protect The Babies Who Survive Botched Abortions!

Each year, hundreds of babies miraculously survive abortions and simply left to die in our nation. Although experts predict between 400-500 “live births” occur, they also are quick to point out that the number is likely much higher.

The cries of defenseless babies who survive an abortion must be answered. They deserve the same level of critical care and compassion afforded to any child that is born prematurely.

Liberty Counsel Action has launched a national petition supporting the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” (S.2066) that has been introduced in the Senate. Under the law, healthcare workers would be compelled to provide compassionate care for these innocent victims while criminalizing the actions of those who are killing these innocent born-alive babies.

In an effort to bring this life-saving bill to the Senate floor for a vote, Liberty Counsel Action is mobilizing at least 100,000 Americans to help build support for this critical legislation.

Disney: No Princess for Queen Elsa #CharmingPrinceForElsa

Join us in standing against the absurd “movement” to turn Queen Elsa of Frozen into a lesbian during the 2018 sequel, “Frozen 2.”

We’re suggesting a much better idea… An idea that promotes solid family values to our children and represents the natural family. Sign our petition, now, to Disney asking that Elsa fall in love with a Prince.  #CharmingPrinceForElsa.

The alternative idea is frightening. Last week, the LGBT lobby and liberal Hollywood stood together demanding Disney create Queen Elsa’s character into a Lesbian. If fact, they claim, based off of her views in Frozen, she is already a lesbian and now only needs a girlfriend.

Help save two-year-old boy, hospital threatens to pull life support

On May 11th the court will decide on the fate of two-year-old baby Israel Stinson. A California hospital is threatening to pull life support from baby Israel claiming that he is “brain dead.” For now, a district judge has issued a restraining order preventing the hospital from ending his life. Baby Israel’s life is in danger. Please sign now, we only have 5 days to be his voice for life.

The hospital is violating the right to life of the patient and ignoring the wishes of the parents.

Please urge the court to protect Israel’s life and urge Kaiser Permanente Medical Center to respect the wishes of his parents! Israel’s heart is beating and he is responding to the touch of his mother and father. His life is precious and every attempt to save him should be made. Please stand with his parents in asking that life support be sustained!

Christians in the military face a radical new anti-Christian threat.

Anti-Christian zealots at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) continue their efforts to deny religious liberty to our men and women in uniform by desecrating the true meaning of the U.S. Constitution.

Their efforts to intimidate our soldiers and distort the truth continue, from attacking the National Day of Prayer and First Amendment-protected religious speech to efforts to ban Bibles from veterans’ displays honoring our fallen soldiers.

Even worse, MRFF – which calls Christians in the military “monsters who terrorize” – has advised the Pentagon on religion in the military.

Ban inhumane veal crates in Florida

Veal, the name given to meat from a baby cow, has gained a lot of negative attention over the years. One of the main reasons for this is veal crates, small enclosures that calves are forced to dwell in for the entirety of their 16-week lives. These crates are so narrow that the calves cannot even turn around. If that isn’t bad enough, calves in Florida are often kept in crates outside, under the blistering sun. Veal crates are inhumane and should be banned.

Many organizations have recommend that the entire veal industry should convert to the group housing methodology — keeping calves together for their short lives. Even Randy Strauss, the CEO of the nation’s largest veal producer, calls veal crates “inhumane and archaic,” acknowledging that they “do nothing more than subject a calf to stress, fear, physical harm and pain.”

Too many states still allow veal crates, and Florida is one of the biggest. Arizona, California, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Ohio, and Rhode Island have already stepped up and banned veal crates. Let’s tell Florida it’s time to do the same.Help put an end to this inhumane practice by signing this petition to ban veal crates in Florida.

Facebook censors conservative stories!

Facebook has been suppressing news stories covering conservative issues from its highly influential “trending” news section. Sign the petition and tell the social media giant to stop censoring speech!

According to Facebook’s website, the “trending” news sections is simply of a model of “topics that have recently become popular on Facebook.” However, a former Facebook employee that worked on the “trending” news section says that workers routinely suppressed stories about Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the “trending” news section even through these stories were actually popular among Facebook users. Instead, workers would artificially “inject” stories that Facebook preferred even if these stories weren’t “trending” at all.

Topics that were suppressed include “former IRS official Lois Lerner, who was accused by Republicans of inappropriately scrutinizing conservative groups; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; popular conservative news aggregator the Drudge Report; Chris Kyle, the former Navy SEAL who was murdered in 2013; and former Fox News contributor Steven Crowder.”

Let The Scriptures Speak Banner

Ecclesiastes 7:1-4 “1 A good name is better than precious ointment, And the day of death than the day of one’s birth; 2 Better to go to the house of mourning Than to go to the house of feasting, For that is the end of all men;
And the living will take it to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter, For by a sad countenance the heart is made better. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, But the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
” (New King James Version)

By asking God for help regarding its reality, Moses makes a vital statement about preparing for death: “So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). The phrase, “number our days,” suggests that we put our use of time in order. Death and its reality play an important role in Christian life, for God fully intends that it have an overall positive effect on the lives of His children. Everybody dies. It cannot be avoided, but not everybody prepares for death.

Martin Luther also made an insightful observation on preparing for death: “It is good for us to invite death into our presence when it is still at a distance and not on the move.” The time to learn about rock climbing is not when hanging from the edge of a precipice but well before starting up the side of the cliff. It seems, though, that many do most things on the spur of the moment, a practice that is not good, especially concerning something like death that absolutely no one escapes.

God gives some insight and counsel in Ecclesiastes 7:3-4. Death, He says, is good for the heart. The heart beats at our core. Attending one good funeral can shape a person’s worldview more positively than a whole year’s worth of parties. Verse 3 may be better understood if translated as, “By sadness, the heart is made better.” His point is aimed at the soundness of the heart, which results from the honest thoughtfulness that sorrow causes a person to engage in. God is saying that sorrow tends to make us better people.

A specific and important sorrow is one Paul names in II Corinthians 7:8-11. In this brief passage, he uses “sorry,” “sorrow,” or “sorrowed” seven times. Why is it important? Because godly sorrow produces repentance, a change of mind and conduct.

In Ecclesiastes, Solomon is clearly implying that, because we love to laugh, worldly mirth is attractive on the surface and momentarily focuses our attention. However, in terms of conduct, it frequently leaves an individual essentially unchanged. When this is combined with the godly truths of II Corinthians 7:8-11, it becomes clear that, by God’s design, the discipline of sorrow tends to lead to improvement of conduct. Thus, God Himself sometimes afflicts us to produce sorrow in the hope that the pains and their accompanying sorrow make our hearts tender so that we change.

The result of a parent disciplining a child in a timely manner and in appropriate measure is a good illustration. Is not some measure of pain and its accompanying sorrow inflicted? Proverbs frequently tells us to spank our children. Why? Is not it to produce the sorrow of separation from one who is loved to accomplish a change in attitude and behavior?

God is saying through Solomon, then, that sorrow—in a morally and ethically beneficial way in which laughter cannot—penetrates and influences the heart, the very center of our being and from which conduct flows. So important is godly sorrow that II Corinthians 7:10 states, “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.”

The Design of Scripture by Brad Scott

The Number Seven – Completeness and Rest

We now come to the most prolific and ubiquitous number in scripture. There is much to be written about the number seven and it’s occurrences, which are too numerous to mention here, not assuming that ‘all’ have been discovered. There is almost universal agreement as to the meaning of this number, and it’s etymological root testifies of this. It speaks of completeness and rest, so it is no wonder that this number appears 54 times in the last book of scripture. YHVH does marvelous things in the earth with this number. The 7th word of scripture is ‘eretz, or the ‘earth’, and this word winds up the initial creation with 7 words. All material, visible and invisible, was created in the beginning, followed by the fall of Lucifer and chaos, and then the 7 days of making, forming, calling, letting be, and seeing were begun. This was complete on the 7th day. However, the 7th day was not declared tov, or good, which also means to be complete. This was done in anticipation of the fall of man, from which the 7 days would begin again, each day representing a thousand years according to several prophecies in scripture. Man, after 6 thousand years on earth, will once again see the final Sabbath in the last thousand years or the 7th millennium.

Man was created on the 6th day and is represented in his nature by the number 6. There is only one (1) thing that stands between man (6) and completeness (7), and that is the (1) one God Himself. In the same way the complete (7) Word of God had to set aside His glory (1) in order to take upon the flesh of man (6). Either way, man always falls short.

From the beginning, the number 7 has represented God’s completed acts. All of His celebrations are given in 7 feasts. When we sing and praise our Creator, we use combinations of 7 whole tones on the musical scale. All of that which is clean was taken into the ark of Noach in sevens (B’reshith [Genesis] 7:2). Priests were consecrated seven whole days before entering the priesthood (Vayikra [Leviticus] 8:31-36). Blood was sprinkled on the mercy seat 7 times to show the complete redemption of the coming Messiah (Vayikra [Leviticus] 16:14, Ivrim [Hebrews] 9:12). God told Yehoshua [Joshua] to march around Jericho 6 times and then the 7th time the walls would fall. The ‘Book of Life’ is mentioned 7 times in scripture. Our bodies operate in complete cycles of sevens. There are 7 bones in our neck, face, and ankles. There are 7 holes in our face. All right, go ahead and count them. Finished? Ok, let’s go on. We are in the womb a predetermined average of 280 days (40 x 7).

The word ‘seven’ is from the Hebrew word sheva’. This word first shows up in B’reshith [Genesis] 2:2:

“And on the SEVENTH day God ended His work which he had made; and He rested on the SEVENTH day from all His work which He had made.”

It’s root means to complete or finish and is used many times as in to complete a cycle, rather than to finish something entirely. This is the word used in Hebrew to express a week or a cycle of seven days, or any cycle of seven. It is the word in this form that is used to express a number or ‘how many’. A word closely related to the number seven is the word Shabbat. Shabbat is related because the day of rest is the 7th day. However, the word shabbat, is not synonymous with the word sheva’. The word shabbat,with the doubling of the bet and the ‘tav’ ending, speaks only of the 7th day, or rest. In other words, shabbat is not the Hebrew word for ‘week’. The Hebrew word for ‘week’ is shavu’a. The Greek word for ‘week’ is bdomada. The Sabbath means only Sabbath, and sabbaths mean only sabbaths. The feast of Shavu’ot, or the feast of weeks, is taken from Vayikra [Leviticus] 23, and refers to the counting of one Sabbath to another Sabbath. The word shabbat first appears in B’reshith 2:2 as well, and is translated as ‘rest’. Actually, the naming of the 7th day of rest as shabbat does not occur until Sh’mot 16:23:

“And he said unto them, This is that which YHVH hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath unto YHVH …”

The Greek transliteration of the Hebrew word for sabbaths is ‘sabbaton’. By transliterating this word into Greek, it is meant that the word shabbat is being referring to. ‘Sabbaton’ is NOT the Hebrew or Greek equivilent to ‘week’. The phrase ‘mia ton sabbaton’ in the Greek is correct. The phrase translated from the Greek is ‘one of the sabbaths’. The KJV translation of ‘first day of the week’ is a mutilation in more ways than one, and only done to promote the change of shabbat to Sunday.

The use of the number seven in scripture is everywhere, and there are many references to this number in myriads of books. I do not know that I can add anything refreshing to them. Keep in mind the idea of completion, rest, and finishing when seeing the number 7. Below are listed some 70 appearances of the number seven.

  • The word ‘seven’ appears 287 times (41 x 7) in the Tenakh [Old Testament].
  • The word ‘seven’ appears 735 times (105 x 7) in all the scriptures.
  • The word ‘seventh’ appears 98 times (14 x 7) in the Tenakh [Old Testament].
  • The word ‘sevenfold’ appears 7 times in the Tenakh [Old Testament].
