"God is not a God of disorder but of peace" ( 1 Corinthians 14:33 ).

With God, disorder and chaos give way to order and peace. God’s very character involves being a God of order and consistency. Existing eternally as the Trinity, the Lord God is unified and complete. His behavior is just, loving, and orderly. He is neither chaotic nor is He unstable. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As humans, we make generalizations and seek order. We have found that nature is remarkably cooperative - it exhibits the underlying order and simplicity we so value. Classical Physics attempts to explain matter and energy on a scale that is familiar to human experience, including the behavior of astronomical bodies such as the moon.

The physical universe possesses enormous detail. Every day, each of us observes a great variety of objects and phenomena. Over the centuries, the curiosity of the human race has led us collectively to explore and catalog a tremendous wealth of information.

From the flight of birds to the colors of flowers, from lightning to gravity, from quarks to clusters of galaxies, from the flow of time to the mystery of the creation of the universe, we have asked questions and assembled huge arrays of facts. In the face of all these details, however, mankind has discovered that a surprisingly small and unified set of physical laws can explain what we observe.
It is the underlying order within nature that makes science in general, and physics in particular, so enjoyable to those gifted to pursue its study.

Quantum mechanics, the foundation of all quantum physics including quantum chemistry, quantum field theory, quantum technology, and quantum information science, is, in contrast to Classical Physics, the study of a fundamental theory in physics that describes the behavior of nature at and below the scale of atoms; of matter and its interactions with energy on the scale of atomic and subatomic particles.
It is the scientific study of the behavior of matter and light on the atomic and subatomic scale, describing and accounting for the properties of molecules and atoms and their constituents, such as electrons, protons, neutrons, and quarks, - the branch of physics that describes the behavior of particles at the very small scale. It explains how they can exist in a haze of probability, have wave-like and particle-like characteristics, and interact with each other.

In the knowledge of Quantum Mechanics, I have absolutely no expertise, but for we who are scientifically impaired, we are able to see God's order beginning in the first book of the Bible, Genesis 1:1. God has summed it up very nicely in ten words that all can grasp: "In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth."

For those who desire graduate study, He explains further in Colossians 1:15-18:

"He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
And he is the head of the body, the church..."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Genesis 1, God created everything out of nothing through the power of His word.

In the New Testament, Jesus, as the very Word of God Himself (John 1:1–3), is the central life-force by which everything in creation finds its existence.

With His word, Jesus speaks life and power into all things - nothing can exist or survive outside of His word and power, for Jesus is the “pillar” that holds up the entire “house” of the universe. Take away the pillar of support, with Jesus no longer holding up all creation, then everything would crumble.

It is, therefore, impossible to separate and isolate Science from the living Logos, Jesus Christ, within the Triune Godhead of the Bible.

The phrase, "Jesus upholding all things by the word of His power" teaches us that everything in creation not only has its beginning, but also its continued existence in Jesus, who, as the eternal Word of God, has no beginning or end.
(John 1:1–2)

Paul Before the Areopagus explained to the Greeks the identity of their unknown God to whom they had built an altar of worship. Paul explained that this was the biblical God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who does not dwell in temples made with hands. God, who is the Source of life for all nations, is really the One they were unwittingly seeking. Paul started by telling them that God is near to them; "For in Him we live and move and have our being." 'As some of your own poets have said,' "We are His offspring."' (Acts 17:28)

"Thanks be to God for His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift [of Jesus Christ]!" (2nd Corinthians 9:15)

and so I just skipped the exit line and left.

I heard her saying "umm - Excuse me “ as I kept walking and raised the receipt above my head, leaving the store.
You can either trust me to do self-checkout, or you can put your cashiers back in place like it used to be.

• If you want me to be a cashier with no training then that's your problem not mine.
• Keep employing young people and give them job opportunities.

Depravity

In the 2014 movie, Lone Survivor, based on real events, Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell was leading a team of four Navy SEALs on a reconnaissance mission in the mountains of Afghanistan overlooking a camp where they believed Ahmad Shah, a leader of an Anti-Coalition M*****a, was operating out of. As they were hiding beneath the trees and foliage on the mountainside, an old Afghanistan man tending a herd of goats with his grandson, stumbled across them, exposing their cover. Marcus and his team had a choice to make. Let the old man and his son go, in which case, the boy would most likely run down to the valley and alert the terrorists that a US SEAL team was on the mountain, or they could protect themselves, and k**l the two unarmed civilians which would have violated one of the SEALs major rules of engagement. Compare that story to what we witnessed Hamas do in Israel on Saturday. If you want to see the difference between the Judeo-Christian worldview and the Islamic worldview, you do not have to look any further than how each side treats innocent civilians. Last week in Israel, Hamas didn’t just inadvertently k**l innocent civilians, they targeted them; they decapitated babies; they raped women; they k**led grandmothers; they paraded their dead bodies in the streets. And at the same time Hamas was targeting and k*****g civilians, they were using Palestinian citizens as human shields. They have even set up their headquarters beneath a civilian hospital. Think about the mentality needed to use human shields. They are using the morality of their avowed enemies to protect themselves. They know that Jewish fighters will go to great lengths to avoid civilian casualties, so the terrorists are able to safeguard themselves by using the civilians as shields, as they are targeting Jewish civilians.

In the West, we know that it is wrong, that it is evil to target and k**l civilians in war, even if not doing so puts your own life at risk. So, Marcus and his team made the decision to let the old man and his grandson live and took their chances scrambling up the mountainside to the top where they attempted to rendezvous with a helicopter to fly them out of harm’s way before the terrorists could find them. The young boy made it down the mountain faster than the SEAL team made it to the top. Shah immediately unleashed a group of terrorists up the mountain after the SEAL team. Three other SEAL team members were k**led in the siege, but miraculously, Marcus Luttrell survived.

Compare that story to what we witnessed Hamas do in Israel on Saturday. If you want to see the difference between the Judeo-Christian worldview and the Islamic worldview, you do not have to look any further than how each side treats innocent civilians. Last week in Israel, Hamas didn’t just inadvertently k**l innocent civilians, they targeted them; they decapitated babies; they raped women; they k**led grandmothers; they paraded their dead bodies in the streets. And at the same time Hamas was targeting and k*****g civilians, they were using Palestinian citizens as human shields. They have even set up their headquarters beneath a civilian hospital. Think about the mentality needed to use human shields. They are using the morality of their avowed enemies to protect themselves. They know that Jewish fighters will go to great lengths to avoid civilian casualties, so the terrorists are able to safeguard themselves by using the civilians as shields, as they are targeting Jewish civilians.

But it is not the innocent Palestinian citizen being used as a human shield that protects them, their enemy’s desire to protect innocent human life is what protects them. If you are unsure of which side is right and which side is wrong in this conflict, you do not have to look any further than – which side is willing to lay down their lives to protect the innocent and which side is willing to lay down the lives of the innocent to protect themselves. Think about that. These people are so morally depraved, that even when they see the moral superiority of their enemy, instead of gravitating to or embracing that moral superiority, they use their enemy's morality against them.

It is a rare individual who can be rightfully characterized as both evil and a coward, but that is what Hamas is, evil cowards. And everyone in our country, from Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to model Mia Khalifa to Black L***s M****r to the Democrat Socialists of America to all the students on America’s college campuses, and anyone else who is standing with the Palestinians, are also evil cowards. Remember, the Palestinians elected Hamas to be their leaders. They collectively chose to be led by a group whose charter is the elimination of the state of Israel and have openly stated that they are willing to commit the most-evil atrocities known to man to achieve that aim. They have lost any claim to the moral high ground the moment they made that deal with the devil.

And once Israel hits them back and starts dismantling Hamas in the Gaza Strip, these people who used civilians as human shields and cheered as they decapitated babies, will try to claim the victim status, and try to turn Israel into the bad guys because that is what they always do. The Muslims will start speaking out against civilians being k**led, even though they didn’t care about the civilians being k**led when it was Jewish civilians they were k*****g. Just remember, these people, if given the opportunity, would murder every single non-Muslim American without a thought, just as they would to k**l every Jewish person. That is their endgame. That is what their caliph**e looks like.

They do not want to co-exist with the Jewish people in Israel. They want the total destruction of the state of Israel. They do not want to co-exist with any non-Islamic people in the world.They want the total destruction of every non-Islamic person on the planet. That’s why the Islamic world has been eerily silent on this recent attack. Very few Muslim celebrities have come out and condemned the attack. White America is prompted on a regular basis to condemn the s***ery in America which ended 160 years ago, and we do again and again and again without hesitation because we know it was wrong and it was evil, but how many Islamic-Americans have been asked to condemn the terrorist attack in Israel that occurred 5 days ago? And how many have been judged when they haven’t?

We must stop projecting our values on these people. Simply because we want to co-existence with races and religions different from our own, does not mean that they do. And they will use every concession we make to them as a weapon against us. Every time that Israel has traded land for peace, that land has been used as a launching pad for another attack into Israel. We must stop cutting deals with people who are plotting our demise. Every deal or so-called peace treaty we make with them brings us one step closer to our destruction.

Today’s Scripture comes from Jewish scripture and is an entreaty for protection.

Chapter 140

Translated by: Nissen Mangel

1. For the Conductor, a psalm by David.

2. Rescue me from the evil man, protect me from the man of violence,

3. who devise evil schemes in their heart; every day they gather for wars.

4. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; the spider’s venom is forever under their lips.

5. Guard me, Lord, from the hands of the wicked, protect me from the man of violence-those who plot to cause my steps to slip.

6. Arrogant ones have hidden a snare for me, and ropes; they spread a net by my path, they set traps for me continually.

7. I said to the Lord, “You are my God!” Listen, O Lord, to the voice of my pleas.

8. God, my Lord, the strength of my deliverance, You sheltered my head on the day of armed battle.

9. Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked; fulfill not his scheme, make it unattainable forever.

10. As for the head of my besiegers, let the deceit of their own lips bury them.

11. Let burning coals fall upon them; let it cast them down into the fire, into deep pits, never to rise again.

12. Let not the slanderous man be established in the land; let the evil of the man of violence trap him until he is overthrown.

13. I know that the Lord will execute judgement for the poor, justice for the needy.

14. Indeed, the righteous will extol Your Name; the upright will dwell in Your presence.

“And He was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake Him, and say unto Him, Master, carest Thou not that we perish?” (Mark 4:38)

There are times when we have seemingly unsurmountable problems and God seems to us to be ignoring our pleadful prayers for assistance, and finally we begin to wonder if He truly hears, and if He truly loves us at all.

There is no need to wonder. God cares about each sparrow, and He deeply cares about each of His own children who have been ransomed by the precious blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. If there is not some clearly evident reason known to us as to why He is not answering (such as perpetual unconfessed sin in our lives), then perhaps it is (as in Job’s case) a simple test of our faith.

For only God knows the correct path, and the proper timing that will allow us the supreme honor of contributing our maximum to furthering His Truth, and His Kingdom in the souls of men. He alone sees the end from the beginning.

When the disciples thought Jesus didn’t care, He rebuked them thus: “Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?” (Mark 4:40).

Mary and Martha sent word that their brother Lazarus was deathly ill, but then Jesus “abode two days still in the same place where he was” (John 11:6). When the sisters complained about His delay, He replied: “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (John 11:40).

One day a woman of Canaan cried out to Him for mercy on her for her demonically-possessed daughter, “but He answered her not a word.” He seemed not to care, but she kept calling on Him and worshiping Him, until He finally said to her: “O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt”
(Matthew 15:23, 28).

The disciples, the sisters of Lazarus, and the Canaanite woman were all bewildered that He failed to operate on their timetable, and were consternated at what appeared to them to be His seeming lack of concern, but He did care. He did calm the storm, He did raise Lazarus from the dead, and He did heal the daughter of the woman who beseeched Him to do so. His delay served the purpose of testing and strengthening their faith.

Can He not also test us, thus strengthening our faith?: “that the trial of your faith...though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ?” (1 Peter 1:7)

Except for my wife and immediate family, true friends are scarce these days.

It's just not easy to find a friend when you live in a world full of demonized, atheist liberal jackasses.

I'm a reasonably well educated man, but it doesn't take a scholar to see that the America that I grew up in is long gone away.

I could list a myriad of reasons why this is so.

But those of you who are my kindred spirits, are already well aware of the facts.

Because of the nature of my work, I spend a lot of time alone and in hotel rooms.

So I've found it necessary to make "lonely", my best friend.

Because being alone is the perfect time to pray.

I pray to God Almighty because I'm in constant need of forgiveness.

You all know, I ain't no Saint by a long shot.

I talk to Jesus because I believe Jesus to be the True King of all mankind and it brings me great comfort.

The godless people of the world surely believe it to be foolish for a man to pray or believe in someone that has no physical appearance.

But it's no concern to me because I have first hand knowledge of the realm of spirituality.

So I know that my behavior seems foolish only to those who themselves are the fools.

I may very well pass away before the coming of The Lord.

But I feel confident and secure knowing that someday a reckoning will come.

It will definitely rid the earth of the evil that has caused these wicked people to worship at the alter of q***rs and a******nist demons.

So every day when my work is done, I gladly take the time to talk with my friend, The King.

I just wanted to put these thoughts in writing because maybe someone here on OPP might understand.

That no man is an island and everyone needs a friend.

How Children perceive their grandparents.
1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I'd done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 68. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.

6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
"What's it about?" he asked.
"I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I really think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"

8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6." (WOW! I really like this one -- it says I'm only '38'!)

10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one child.
"No," said another. "He's just for good luck."
A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and whenever we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."

14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.

We have become a country that is on the road to tolerate anything and everything society. That is the formula for developing a mindset that says to unstable people that anything goes. We have downgraded to the point of eliminating God out of even some churches.

We are tri-part beings, Body, mind, and spirit. We have no problem feeding or caring for our bodies; our minds are another thing, there is no doubt that young minds have been and are being indoctrinated by public school systems since approx. the late 1960s until now with the introduction of technology, lack of proper personal interaction, the freewheeling lifestyles have destroyed the need for accountability. responsibility, and respectability for many younger people.

When was the last time a 65-70+-year-old has been involved in a mass shooting?
The third part of our humanness is the Spiritual side. Body! Check. Mind questionable! The spirit, failure.
God is in the business of changing hearts and minds. He has given in His Word a simple way to stop all the mass shootings, corruption, hate, greed, jealousy, or whatever is harmful to any society or culture. He simply says, Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Most importantly He says to Love the Lord thy God with all you mind heart and strength.

If you read Galatians 5:22 you will find what takes place when a person (whoever) gets serious about believing in God the things that take over a persons life, IF, IF they are serious.
Evil will be with us until the end there is no question about that, in fact, times will just get worse. No manmade law is going to change human nature. We have reached the point where Jesus said as the end approaches there will come a time when there is distress among nations with perplexity. This means we will reach a time when there are no answers or solutions to many, many problems.

We are there if we will just stop and look at what is happening not only in our country but around the world. Something big is on the horizon, be it Divine Good or extreme evil. If we really want to stop the extreme evil we all have to be willing to make the right choices and decisions.
This will seem like silliness to some but no matter how silly one may think it is following God brings a total change in a person as only He can change human nature. Just saying.
