Thought for the day

logo“I know many hearts are heavy and some are jubilant after the election. However, I ask that we meet in the middle to find the common ground that unites us all which is the blood of Jesus. Jesus prayed and died for the very same folks who nailed him to the cross so we might have a chance to experience the overwhelming power of His amazing grace. Let’s rest in right believing, which leads to right thinking that ultimately manifest itself into right living.” – Pastor Lionel


**If you are in need of prayer (Ephesians 6:18), please click Prayer Request.” I would love to pray for you.

One thought on “Thought for the day

  1. Mr. Trump for I will never refer to him as President is not a man known for compassion. As a U.S. Army Veteran this will be the saddest Veteran’s Day ever for me. This man. This tyrant is tearing apart the country I pledged to defend. I Love America. I am not leaving and I will fight for the Land of my Birth.

    However let us approach this from a Biblical standpoint. I Love Jesus. One of the many reason I Love the Lord Jesus is that he called ’em as he saw ’em. Did not try to sugar coat anything. This is how he refers to Herod. As a “Sly Fox.” Jesus knew the deal. Probably the Herod who executed his cousin John the Baptist.

    Luke 13:32-34
    The Voice (VOICE)

    Jesus: 32 You can give that sly fox this message: “Watch as I cast out demons and perform healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I’ll reach My destination. 33 But for today and tomorrow and the next day, I have to continue My journey, for no prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem.”

    34 O Jerusalem! O Jerusalem! You kill the prophets and you stone the messengers who are sent to you. How often I wanted to gather in your children as a hen gathers in her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing to come to Me.

    It also troubles me that many who voted for Trump live in the so-called Bible Belt. Well what Bible are you reading. You do know that Jesus was a Jew who live in a multi-cultural polytheistic society and no where in the Gospels where he is attacking his Greek, Roman or Egyptian neighbors or devaluing their belief systems. In fact Jesus saved most of his most scathing remarks for his fellow Jews/Hebrews specifically the Pharisees and Sadducees. Here is where Jesus got angry with hypocrites.

    Matthew 21:12-13
    New International Version (NIV)
    Jesus at the Temple
    12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them,“‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.
