      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

What is the real crisis in the E.U. and who is behind it all?

The Channel Tunnel was closed for a time today as 200 migrants stormed the tunnel entrance, Some getting several miles into the tunnel.  Back in about 1881 a previous attempt to build a tunnel was halted because the Govt. feared it would be used for invasion.  Seems they had good reason.

Even before this "refuge crisis" it was estimated that in about 15 years Western European nations will find themselves being dominated by Muslims. European people in all their nations are not having enough children to even sustain their numbers. Meanwhile, Muslims are having 8.1 children per family; which will overwhelm the average 1.6 children of Europeans.

By 2030 the Muslim population will be large enough to gain much political power by voting in most European nations. At the same time they will have a large population of young, fighting age men who are prepared to take Europe by force in the name of Allah.

All this will likely lead to civil war across Western Europe with many native Europeans being slaughtered, some choosing to stand and fight, others attempting to flee, ironically, to Eastern Europe.

America and Canada will likely be able to offer little assistance as both nations will have a large enough Muslim population at that time to cause chaos and fear within.

Western man and Christianity are under severe threat and it's by design, not by accident. How anyone can hear the words and see the actions of Obama and not see he is taking a pro-Islam, anti-traditional America stance is beyond me.

In some of our lifetimes we may see the destruction of the Christian West and the rise of parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia claiming the mantle of bastions of Christianity.

But even in sub Sahara there are many nations with large Muslim populations.

Two Iranians were arrested in Kent, today after walking through the tunnel to England.

**Western man and Christianity are under severe threat and it's by design, not by accident. How anyone can hear the words and see the actions of Obama and not see he is taking a pro-Islam, anti-traditional America stance is beyond me.**

**Simple: people are scared to death to be called 'conspiracy theorists', so they don't dare admit what their eyes tell them is the truth. Even I, who know what's going on, in my heart, I have a hard time really accepting it, that MY OWN GOVERNMENT has gone so bad, so completely EVIL, as to work against their own country, and that those who claim to be of the opposite thought, refuse to do a thing about it, for fear of being called names. This is why Trump is so popular today-he isn't afraid to be called names, or to call manes right back. He may not be right, and he may not be the right candidate, but people are so sick of wimpy conservatives that anyone bold will do.
