These people felt they were above the law because the law did not act swiftly toward them. "Because sentence against wickedness is not executed speedily, therefore the hearts of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Eccl. 8:11
I believe in forgiveness and not revenge. But restitution is not revenge. They must restore what they have taken, and if they are unable only the victims themselves can do the forgiving.
Yeah, that open-mouthed wormhead would be looking for work if he fingered the boss like that around here. You have to make the boss look good if you ever want his job {even to keep eating - if you can't grow your own}.
Jubilee Declaration September 28, 2009 As you may recall, we have been led to declare a Jubilee on the Day of Atonement, September 28, 2009. The text that we will be using is taken from our 1996 declaration, though it is a shortened form of it. Here it is: “Father in heaven, we stand in Thy courts this day to declare that we forgive all those who have trespassed against us. We declare their debts to us to be forgiven and annulled. We proclaim a Jubilee over them. We also stand here before your throne as representatives of all the Overcomers to declare the Jubilee. We blow this trumpet and speak this Word in the earth, declaring our acceptance and absolute approval of Your great Jubilee. We declare our decision to enter the Promised Land and Your Jubilee Rest, even as Caleb and Joshua urged our forefathers to do long ago. “Father, we also confess to You the sin of our father Adam and ask that You forgive it and free us from the bondage of mortal flesh under which we have labored these past 6,000 years. Let us return to the inheritance that You gave us at the beginning. Restore us to full fellowship with Thee. Grant unto us the dominion over the earth and over all its elements, which You intended for us to have from the beginning. “Now let the Second Work of Christ begin in the earth. We declare the release of the second goat into the wilderness, who bears in his body all our sins and iniquities into an uninhabited place. We further release the second dove into the field, dipped in the blood of our first Dove, who has died to pay the penalty for all our sins. We declare that this second great work has now begun, by which men may come into life and perfection. “Father, by the authority vested in us, Your sons, we lay claim to the nations as our inheritance. We lay claim to all territory, wealth, and inhabitants of all these nations. We declare to be null and void all claims by Esau, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and all sinful flesh upon the earth. Let all the gold, silver, brass, and iron go into the treasury of El Elyon, the Most High God. “Thank-you, Father, for hearing our prayer as we register these petitions in the courts of Heaven in the name of Jesus. Amen.” Any of you who wish to participate are welcome. You don't have to "sign up" for anything or even to tell me that you have participated. And if you are led to add anything to this, please be led by the Spirit. The above text is not meant to restrict anyone but to provide some basis of unity in the declaration. Also, if you hear about after this date, remember God is not restricted by time.
Yesterday evening we returned from our "last-road-trip". I've been calling them that for years as we temporarily migrate to a family "function". I have learned to hate "happy motoring" and having loved ones scattered, but not being isolated. Now we are comfortably "stuck" in a home {hobby farm} only an okie refugee from Californicate, who had the foresight to cash out years ago, could afford. We have been preparing for {and I'll readily admit to looking forward to} the day when my children and grandchildren are forced to move back home. It will be much harder for the young, who have never known want, than for us. We will count our blessings and we will adapt.
They say you don't get it from eating pork, or even touching a pig; well what about being within sneezing distance of a pig? You won't raise your own pigs or let anyone else near you raise them, but you will eat them? If you call it swine flu, I'll betcha there's some reason for it. Oh, it's cause the swines get this kinda flu. If there were no swines there would be no swine flu? If there was nobody willing to eat swine, there would be no swine flu? If there were no swine flu, there would be nothing to... ignore.
