Come on now, folks!! Did any of you really think that Justice would be served yesterday with the Supreme Court ruling on 'obama-care ??' Ha! Whom of any person you know who has a Spirit anointed understanding of the Bible really thinks that things will get better from 2012 -- onward?? Hey... I got to tell you a secret-- the definition of an expert is: 'Someone who knows everything there is to know about ONE SET SUIBJECT.' That means that most normal folks who investigate, read, study and research a subject long enough can be an expert in that particular field. Simple. I humbly consider myself an expert, and a near expert, in several areas, and my peers respect me as such. I passed a tough Securities Federal exam back in 1995, and felt good about that! I have studied the Bible for the past 40 years and feel that I have a firm grasp on the Scriptures. I have been blessed to have other hobbies, skills, trades, etc., in my life time, plus earned a descent living all my life-- through hard [and smart] work. Thank you, dear Lord, for giving me those 'tools' and opportunities to do SOMETHING good with my short life thus far, or 63 years!
But what I am really trying to say on this hot, humid day of super sunshine in the U.P. is that we shouldn't really put much of our trust or hope is human accomplishments-- but to trust in the Lord [Proverbs 3:15] and understand what the BIBLE says will happen, now in June 29th, 2012 and on ward, dear friends. IF, if things do get a bit better for a while-- don't worry, the very next day they will fail... LOL ! Ha! Not trying to be a pessimist, but a realist... that if we have a simple pot of baked beans, some bread and pure water, we should count ourselves BLESSED!! When my pretty, attractive wife, Terri, gets home from hard work of constantly walking on concrete floors for 8 hours, I know that she will hug and kiss me, and I will rub her sore feet, and serve her some good food, or what ever else she wants to rejuvinate her tired, hot, exhausted body. I am a Disabled Vietnam Veteran, a retired Chrysler worker with descent benefits, $$$, etc., and so blessed by God to be Saved-- with the grand knowledge that Jesus paid the price for me-- NOT TO GO TO HELL, but gain everlasting life in heaven, ONLY because I CHOOSE to follow and obey Him. The Bible tells me so. Any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are some things I could be doing today, besides having gone to the bank for some cash, out for Chinese lunch, taking care of our two dogs, Frida, and Deuce the Rotty. But we've both been pushing it to finish the new deck and fence in the back yard this past few week-- I think...lol. And I just want to call and email a few friends to see if they are staying cool like I am today. There are serious, deadly fires out West now, some draught, lack of precipitation, etc., and who knows what our harvest and wheat crop will look like this year. My motto is: "Live simple -- live well."
So now what will happen with obama-care? Personally, I don't care, because it's all academic and prob won't affect me or mine. I don't expect to even be on earth that long to find out. I do VOTE for whom ever adheres to the U.S. Constitution, who seems to be qualified and conservative, pay my taxes, etc., but I am not too concerned about all the clamor [although veruy disappointed about yesterday and the "decission"]-- even as the common man is getting shafted and cheated, ripped off. God will take care of all that in due time... and maybe sooner. And the possiblity of higher officials being scared, bought off, intimidated, in MY mind, is something not too far fetched these days-- even with the SC ! In other words, NOTHING surprises me anymore.

The Coming Kingdom (Part 6)
Posted: 28 Jun 2012 09:37 AM PDT
By Dr. Andy Woods Sugar Land Bible Church Because today's evangelical world believes that the church is experiencing the messianic kingdom, we began a study chronicling what the Bible teaches about the kingdom. This earthly kingdom is anticipated in the office of Theocratic Administrator that was lost in Eden, in the biblical covenants, in the predictions of the Old Testament prophets, and
