I’m bombarded daily by news. It starts in the morning with husband’s look at the weather, today’s and the week. Then world/national news and local shootings and traffic accidents with a house fire or two through the night.
There isn’t any good economic news. The nation is set to collapse. The world is set to collapse too. Governments seek to ‘fix’ everything. Though, it’s the people who can make a difference, not rulers, presidents, representatives.
But we’re drowning in laws, regulations. We’re working hard to keep our heads above water and care for our families. But prices on everything are going up and our retirement savings have been taken away by stock market drops. There’s no place to put anything saved. We lose our principle in every place we used to sock a little money.
I’m looking for a person to run for president who will tell me there is hope. Real hope. Hope for my country. Hope for my family. Hope for the world. After Mr. Cain suspended his campaign, I see no one that fits that bill.
So I’ll just lean on Jesus. And do what I can to take his Gospel to those in need. I don’t know what others do without Him. He’s the only sanity in my world. He’s the only one with Good News. ♡♡♡
Is. 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain; you who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, don’t be afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!
Prov. 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
Hebrew for Christians
Jesus spoke Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew.
But his root were God ordained: Hebrew.
Traditional Christian theology tends to regard God in Greek, rather than Hebrew, terms. Indeed, the word “theology” itself is Greek (not Hebrew) and refers to the “study of God” (θεός + λόγος), implying that God is an “object” that could be looked at, “analyzed,” and known as a “thing” or divine “substance.” To the ancient Greeks, the idea of God is disclosed through a process of intellectual abstraction — through “negative theology” (i.e., denying predicates of human language to the divine), and so on. Ultimately this led to the Greek ideal of God as an “Unmoved Mover,” an Immutable Divine Mind, and so on. Insofar as the early church embraced pagan Greek assumptions and thinking, its attempt at understanding God followed course, and even the study of the Scriptures became a kind of linguistic archaeology, where specimens (i.e., “texts”) were looked at, a taxonomy was created, and the entire system was displayed as a museum for the mind…
How different is the picture of God we see during Moses’ personal intercession on behalf of Israel, when he spoke “face to face” (i.e., panim el panim: פָּנִים אֶל־פָּנִים) with the LORD from the midst of the cloud. Here we see God “breathing deeply,” that is, expressing regret or feeling compassion in response to the actions of His sinful people (i.e., nacham: נָחַם). God is not some static object but rather a dynamic and forceful Person. Unlike the Greek philosophers who tended to regard God as little more than a “machine” (deus ex machina) or device that caused the universe to “get going,” the LORD God of Israel is intensely personal, feeling, emotional, compassionate, angry, and so on. The Hebrew view of God is that of a Living Person, a Speaking Word, and a Fiery Breath broods that over the events of the physical world.
You went to an anti-war rally because you hated Bush, not because you loved peace. Thus, when Obama bombed, you didn’t hold any anti-war rally, because you didn’t hate Obama.
There is much more. It’s a very long thesis about why this woman is no longer a leftist. It showed me the mind set of these people in hatred, victimism, arrogance, selective outrage, good intentions versus actual solidly good actions, hatred of the working class (YES, REALLY!), hatred of God, and their use of lies.
This truly helps me understand their very human mindset/worldview.
It’s all negative!
