Proverbs 3:5+6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

A SUITABLE ARTICLE FOR THE 12TH JULY

Saw this article on a friend`s timeline. It is well worth a read, a well wrtten and timely article.

Persecution of Protestants in Ireland: Ethnic myths and European interventions

2 Thess 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

TYPICAL IRA/MI5 LOWLIFE !

A typical IRA/MI5 lowlife has claimed he would rather die than become “an informer.”

MHIRABomber

The chances of Michael Hayes being allowed to walk free from the predicament he put himself in, without being forced to become an informer is non-existent.

Hopefully the families of the victims will be able to get the best and most effective legal advice as to how they can obtain some kind of justice.

Proverbs 6:16-19

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

THE GOD HATERS LIFTING UP THEIR HEADS

Psalm 83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

Note how the Bible is applicable in all ages, the past, the present and the future!

You can see how an all seeing, all knowing and all powerful God has described events in Belfast today long before these events occurred.

The same types of evil people have been present in all societies in all ages but due to the prevailing moral climate in most socities in most of the ages, they have kept their heads down, fearing to bring too much attention upon themselves.

Now we have come to the endtimes, and the prevailng climate favours the God haters in most Western nations, just as the Bible described it aforetime.

PSALM 83 A REFUTATION OF “COINCIDENCE THEORISM”

PSALAM 83 

1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

WHAT DO THE “BODY LANGUAGE EXPERTS” MAKE OF THIS?

One of the great things which came about with the advent of the internet, is the easy accessibility of great historic photos/images of every genre.

A huge amount of photos from all era`s of N.Ireland can be seen at many different sources.

I have come  across this one, which instinctively makes me think, it would be a great one for “Body language experts” to study.

Body Language

It is not possible to be exactly precise about the date or the venue but it is obviously from the early 1970s when the UDA must have been at it`s peak.

The picture includes an MP, various other political personalities and a couple of “leading UDA figures,” one of which is Tommy Herron.

When you study the picture however, it is none of these figures which are impressive. The individual who exudes an aura of “power and confidence” is the figure with the beard and sun-glasses.

I wonder who he is?

Some time ago I wrote an article on the subject of “Body language.”

IS THERE REALLY SUCH A THING AS “BODY LANGUAGE?”

The book of proverbs discusses “body language.”

Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

HID

Over the past few days I have been reading Matthew`s gospel and was greatly struck by the word “HID” in chapter 11.

Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

This morning I was presented with a wonderful modern day illustration of the truths presented in this verse.

An item on the Nolan show revealed that creation ministries will be in N.Ireland presenting the Bible truths about creation. The link is below.

‘Prehistoric Preachers’ to teach children dinosaurs and men lived together

Naturally the presenter of the radio show and a “guest commentator,” namely one Basil McCrea, put their best efforts into trying to discredit the truth. Puffed up with their own intellects they kept insisting the earth is millions of years old and “modern science” cannot be wrong!

The debate perfectly illustrated Matthew 11:25 and it illustrates the greatest paradox of all.

Basil

Blind Basil he cannot see the truth

Almighty God has freely revealed the truth about salvation, history, the sciences,  the future and all the other important aspects of human life. Yet simultaneously while revealing the truth, Almighty God hides it from God haters like Basil McCrea!
