A Common Loser’s Strategy is asking others to Look at me! Notice me. See who I am! Pay attention to me. I am great! I AM THE GREATEST! Worship me, Praise me. Losers worship the false god of self. A Common Loser’s Strategy is also to Seek Revenge. Too often in life I have met too many a proud, perverse, dictatorial manager, administrators, actually slave drivers, who gets often upset. do pout that others that do not cower in fear, do not submit absolute reverence under their feet. They now have set themselves up for severe disappointment or heartache or failure in their lives. Years later I met some of these same people unemployed, even destitute and broke.. Many of us want to succeed but at what costs, at the false costs of others? For too many persons Power is intoxicating? Some bad persons they now get a little power and they falsely do think can be abusive with it. they get a little control and thy also get greatly manipulate. they tend to want all things done their way and they try to manipulate and maneuver others, to get these people to do the things they want done, for they are a bully, just like Haman who used his power falsely to bully the people around him. Dream on they are heading for a rude awakening. Their Bitterness is a wasted life.
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought . . .Honor one another above yourselves . . . Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. (Romans 12:3,10,16)
(Ezek 6:13 KJV) Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.
(Psa 35:13 KJV) But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
And No idols includes one’s pastor, one’s denomination, religious club… Man’s best is too often just more hatred, murder, abuse…. 70 percent of today’s pastors are also crooked cause they are ungodly, unsaved hirelings, wolves in sheep clothing, not called by God pastors trying to make money, a career of the ministry.. this is unacceptable… that is why they too readily do lie, counsel divorce, slander, abuse others.
Now those who attacked the Jews were aware they would be resisted with force, the majority were probably Amalekites. A blind and devilish hatred for the Jews drove them to attack in an insane attempt to destroy them forever. And two facts about what took place speak loudly: (1) they were instructed to kill all their enemies–including women and children (Est.8:11, above), and (2) that the Jews universally rejected taking their possessions as the spoils of war leads me to believe God prompted them to obey completely what Saul and the army of Israel failed to do five hundred years earlier. Our God is totally Sovereign in the affairs of men and He quite literally allowed the Amalekites, souls living in spiritual darkness, a grace period before final judgment fell. The all-but complete slaughter by the army of Israel should have been a “wake-up call,” but they did not repent of their wickedness. And when opportunity presented itself, they eagerly sought to harm the apple of God’s eye–Israel (Deut.32:10; Zech.2:8). Amalek was Esau’s grandson. He was born to Timna the concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son. And Esau, if you will recall, had a twin brother Jacob who was born second, thereby missing out on the inheritance rights of the firstborn. So to make a long story short, Esau was a profane person (Heb.12:16) who could not care less about the spiritual headship responsibilities of his birthright. He literally sold that birthright to Jacob for a bowl of pottage (beans) and in doing so, demonstrated the darkness of his heart. Throwing away that blessed priviledge set in motion a chain of events that continues to this very day, because other descendants of Esau continue to have conflict with the offspring of Jacob (Israel).
(2 Chr 14:11 KJV) And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee. 12 So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled. 13 And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar: and the Ethiopians were overthrown, that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before the LORD, and before his host; and they carried away very much spoil. 14 And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for the fear of the LORD came upon them: and they spoiled all the cities; for there was exceeding much spoil in them. 15 They smote also the tents of cattle, and carried away sheep and camels in abundance, and returned to Jerusalem.
(Rev 22:18 KJV) For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
“Let it be clear: Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is wrong, But singling Israel out for selective condemnation and opprobrium — let alone denying its right to exist or seeking is destruction — is discriminatory and hateful, and not saying so is dishonest.” Ottawa Protocol
It should be evident to any Bible reader that everything the Jews did was not God sanctioned even as chosen ones not even the Wars between the Jews and/or the Babylonians, Romans:
The Jews’ Great Revolt against Rome in 66 C.E. led to one of the greatest catastrophes in Jewish life and, in retrospect, clearly also has been a terrible mistake.
During the summer of 70, the Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem, and initiated an orgy of violence and destruction. Shortly thereafter, they destroyed the Second Temple. This was the final and most devastating Roman blow against Judea. When people today speak of the almost two-thousand-year span of Jewish homelessness and exile, they are dating it from the failure of this revolt. http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/
Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too. But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach so we can realy not support either side as being mainly in the right http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/jews-arabs-none-of-them-politically-correct/
CANADA’S PRIME MINISTER’S STEPHEN HARPER’S ONE SIDED SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL OVER PALESTINE CLEARY TO GET THE JEWISH VOTES IS IMMORAL as well. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/what-the-canadian-conservatives-do-not-say-about-israel/
Face it basic life is dull, boring, monstrous often too, and so many people seek an edge, an escape, a simple alternative that others do not have supposedly that will let them live on a higher plane. For these often proud people the old fashion, simple gospel of the fact that God, who is Jesus Christ as well, has died personally for all your sins, and you can now be forgiven for all of your sins and next go to heaven if you continue to obey God and do his will is too difficult for them. They still want an easy, instant, quick serve McDonald Gospel. Too any cults now even too readily allow them such alternatives even the cults such as Jehovah Witnesses, Latter Days Saints, Seventh Day Adventist , New Age Movements and others now .
WHERE THERE IS A GENUINE THERE IS OFTEN ALSO A FALSE COUNTERFEIT.
How do you Know if the Spirit Talking to you is Good and not Evil? iS IT REALLY GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT OR THE DEVIL NOW? http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/does-god-speak-to-you/
Just like there is good and bad food, poisonous food that will kill you so there is also good and evil sprits, good spirits we tend to call angels AND bad spirits we tend to call demons BUT MANY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE HERE YET TOO. “But the Spirit [the Holy Spirit] explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons…” (1 Tim. 4:1).
“…for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11:14).
(1 John 4:1 KJV) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
(1 John 4:2 KJV) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
(1 John 4:3 KJV) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
(1 John 4:4 KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
PRIDE AND HE LACK OF LOVE TOWARDS OTHERS ARE A VERY CLEAR INDICATION OF A BAD SPIRIT
(1 John 4:11 KJV) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
(1 John 4:15 KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
(1 John 4:16 KJV) And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Channeling used to be known as spiritualism WHICH IS DEFINITELY STILL A FORBIDDING, OCCULT PRACTICE!
(Deu 18:10 KJV) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
(2 Ki 17:17 KJV) And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
(Jer 14:14 KJV) Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
(Ezek 12:24 KJV) For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
(Ezek 13:6 KJV) They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
(Ezek 13:7 KJV) Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
(Ezek 21:21 KJV) For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.
(Acts 16:16 KJV) And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
In this practice OF channelling the person involved allows themselves to be taken over by entities which claim to be spirits of the dead, angels, deceased gurus or wise men, or even an alien beings. It is interesting to observe the consistent pattern that emerges in channeling from spirits, the deceased, and alien entities. Most messages speak of the following themes: reincarnation, and the teaching that humans are god’s. Jesus is usually seen a just a wise teacher who was one of many, and the Bible is usually regarded as untrustworthy. THAT ITSELF SHOULD TELL YOU HOW FALSE THESE SPIRITS NOW ARE. The lying entities and Satanists do not believe we need a Savior since they claim they do not believe there is such a thing as sin to be saved from. But why do the entities have so much hesitancy when talking about Jesus, or even to simply ignore Him?
Just cause you may still now deny that evil spirits do exist does not mean they do not exist. Loss of self control can still often lead to the possession of one’s soul by something, someone else. It is danger to surrender one’s will to anything, anyone else.
“They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet Him. This man lived in the tombs, and no-one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No-one was strong enough to subdue him.” (Mark 5:1-4). “Some of the Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon possessed. They would say, “In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.” (Acts 19:13-16)
Sin and repentance, the rarely used words today…
Consequences of sin
All human misery, e.g. death, disease, fear, pain, and suffering, is ultimately rooted in sin. Sin increases the gap separating mankind from God. On the way toward a complete separation between mankind and God (which is an unavoidable consequence of sin) sinners become unrepentant and hard-hearted. Sin increasingly diminishes their strength to overcome. Ultimately the wages of sin is death (Romans 6: 23). Here a distinction must be made between physical death (i.e. the passing away of a human being) and spiritual death (i.e. complete separation between man and God).
Conditions of Forgiveness
Although God is always ready and willing to forgive us, He requires two things of us as conditions of forgiveness: repentance and forgiveness of others.
1) Repentance. Repentance means a sincere personal resolve to turn away from sin and toward God.
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (NIV, Matthew 4:17)
If our sin has harmed another person, we should try to make amends for the wrong done (Luke 19:8-10). If we have tried to hide our sin, we should confess it (Matthew 3:1-6, Matthew 18:15-18, Acts 19:18, James 5:16-17). True repentance involves sorrow for acts of sin and leads to a fundamental change in attitude. We are not perfect and may fail in our attempt to avoid sin. In that case God is always willing for us to start over and make another attempt. However, if we ask for forgiveness with the intention of sinning again, we have not really repented.
2) Forgiveness of others. Jesus said we must be willing to forgive people who sin against us:
If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. (NLT, Matthew 6:14-15)
There should be no limit to our willingness to forgive others (Luke 17:3-4). We should have a forgiving spirit even if the offender does not repent and ask for forgiveness (Mark 11:25). We damage our relationship with God and harm ourselves if we stay angry or hold a grudge (Matthew 5:21-24).
Availability of Forgiveness
The good news is that, no matter how serious the sin, God is always seeking us out and is willing to forgive and forget our sins and give us a fresh start. As long as we live, it is never too late to ask for forgiveness and make a new start!
So Jesus used this illustration: “If you had one hundred sheep, and one of them strayed away and was lost in the wilderness, wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine others to go and search for the lost one until you found it? And then you would joyfully carry it home on your shoulders. When you arrived, you would call together your friends and neighbors to rejoice with you because your lost sheep was found. In the same way, heaven will be happier over one lost sinner who returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! (NLT, Luke 15:3-7)
When we have sinned, we can ask God for forgiveness, as in the Lord’s Prayer:
and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us. (TLB, Matthew 6:12)
Human beings sin whenever they violate God’s declared will. By sinning they burden themselves with guilt before God.
-God Himself always establishes righteous conduct by revealing His will. Mankind is instructed to inquire into God’s will and to act accordingly.
In assessing whether a deed is sinful or not, the only deciding factor is the divine will, as it is manifested in the Holy Scripture, and revealed in timely fashion by the Holy Spirit
(cf. Exodus 20: 20). It is also sinful to break vows made to God (cf. Deuteronomy 23: 22), and not to believe in Christ (cf. John 16: 9). Covetousness, envy, and the like also constitute sin (cf. Galatians 5: 19-21; 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10; Ephesians 5: 5).
Sin constitutes everything opposed to God’s will and contrary to God’s nature. Consequently sin is absolute.
-The Holy Scripture clearly defines sin as any violation of the Ten Commandments
-All deliberate thoughts, words, and deeds contrary to God’s will and nature are sinful. It is also sinful to deliberately neglect to do good (James 4: 17).
All persons are sinners also have to meet certain conditions in order to have their sins forgiven by God. These include:
– Faith in Jesus Christ
– Belief that the authority to forgive sins in the name of Jesus is vested in the apostolate. (The apostles have been given the authority to forgive sins in Jesus’ name, however the absolution pronounced by priestly ministers in the stead of the apostle has the same effect as if the apostle himself had pronounced ).
– The realisation that they have sinned and are in need of grace
– The heartfelt desire for reconciliation with God
– Acknowledging their sins before God, as expressed in the supplication in the Lord’s Prayer: “… forgive us our debts…”
– Remorse and repentance. This is associated with a desire to make good their guilt towards other
– The serious resolution to overcome faults and weaknesses
– Willingness to forgive and be reconciled,
– Grasping the absolution in faith
Keeping God’s word Continually in our heart helps us to keep from sin, sinning, doing wrong
(Psa 119:9 KJV) BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

(John 17:17 KJV) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
(Acts 4:29 KJV) And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
The Lord Jesus also described the failure to believe in Him as sin (John 16: 9). Death does not make a believer out of an unbeliever.
The Faith Factor 2008 vs. 2004 — Exit Polls US Presidential elections
Dr. Rick Warren, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA
Dr. Rick Warren founded Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, in 1980 with one family. Today, it is an evangelical congregation averaging 22,000 weekly attendees, a 120-acre campus, and has more than 300 community ministries to groups such as prisoners, CEOs, addicts, single parents, and those with HIV/AIDS. He also leads the Purpose Driven Network of churches, a global coalition of congregations in 162 countries. TIME magazine named him one of “15 World Leaders Who Mattered Most in 2004,” and in 2005 one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Arole that positions Mr. Warren to succeed Billy Graham as the nation’s pre-eminent minister and reflects the generational changes in the evangelical Christian movement.
The Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery
The Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, considered the dean of the civil rights movement, co-founded along with Martin Luther King, Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and served as president and chief executive officer from 1977 to January 15, 1998. He served as pastor of Atlanta’s oldest predominantly Black United Methodist congregation, Central Methodist Gardens for 18 years, and as pastor of Cascade United Methodist Church from 1986 to 1992
Liberal groups criticized the inclusion of Warren, whose “Purpose Driven Life” books and lectures have made his church among the largest in the country. Rick Warren is an early taste of the President-elect Barack Obama’s post-election effort to reach evangelical Americans. The effort continues even though Obama’s evangelical offensive during the presidential campaign yielded only modest results on Election Day. Earlier this year, as the debate over same-sex marriage raged in California, Warren publicly endorsed Proposition 8, which amends the state Constitution to declare that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” Wow this honeymoon is ending before it ever started… at least for the gay community. His selection has drawn criticisms from liberals, including the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization. Rick Warren is a slap in the face to every member of the LGBT community and their straight friends. This is offensive. Obama knows he has liberals in his pocket, and he no longer has to pay lip service to them. What are liberals going to do about it? Vote Republican? Or pray about it too?
