So . . . as I’ve been thinking about what to say in this Christmas letter it seemed clear to me that I should send you something a little different this year in the form of a word study:
“ And because he loved your fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought you out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;”
“For you are an holy people unto the Lord your God: the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, has the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”
“For you are a holy people unto the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.”
“ Then there shall be a place which the Lord your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you;”
“ Only your holy things which you have, and your vows, you shall take, and go to the place which the Lord shall choose:”
“ And the Lord shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.”
“For the Lord your God hath chosen him (Levi) out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons forever.”
1 Chronicles 16:13
“ O you seed of Israel his servant, you children of Jacob, his chosen ones.”
1 Chronicles 28:6
“ And he said unto me, Solomon your son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.”
2 Samuel 6:21
“And David said unto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me before your father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Lord.”
“ For the Lord has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation.”
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom He has chosen for his own inheritance.”
“I have made a covenant (ber.eth’: בְּרִית) with my chosen.”
“ And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:
“ Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.”
“ And say unto them, Thus says the Lord God; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up my hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up my hand unto them, saying, I am the Lord your God;”
“And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan; even the Lord that has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?”
“So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”
“And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he has chosen, he hath shortened the days.”
“ But one thing is needful: and Mary has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” How much time will you spend this Christmas season sitting at Jesus’ feet?
“And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.”
“I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.”
“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
“If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”
“Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:”
“ But the Lord said unto him, Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:”
“And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen you, that you should know his will, and see that Just One, and should hear the voice of his mouth.”
1 Corinthians 1:27-28
“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:”
“ According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:”
2 Timothy 2:4
“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
2 Thessalonians 2:13
“But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:”
“Hearken, my beloved brethren, Has not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to them that love him?”
1 Peter 2:4
“To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,”
1 Peter 2:9
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;”
“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
A bullet travels about 600 miles per hour. By comparison, light travels about 186,000 miles per second. If, by some amazing feat of mechanics you could soup up your car to fly 186,000 miles per second . . . at that amazing speed you would reach the moon in one and a half seconds. Eight minutes later you would pass the sun. To get to the next nearest star, you would travel four and half more years. Even then, you would not have left our galaxy yet! Our Milky Way alone contains one hundred million stars (each of which God has named -- Psalm 147:4). And to go from one end of our galaxy to the other (at 186,000 miles per second) it would take 100,000 years. And that does not include stopping every one thousand miles to change oil in your vehicle. To reach the nearest galaxy (and there are more than 200 billion of them), which contains hundreds of millions of stars . . . it would take 2.2 million years. And then you would only be at the tip of the universe. Scientists believe that there are more than 2 billion galaxies in the universe. Only God knows what lies beyond . . . because he made it all!
The vast galaxy we live in is spinning at the incredible speed of 490,000 miles an hour. But even at this breakneck speed, our galaxy still needs 200 million years to make one rotation. And there are more than 200 billion galaxies similar to ours in this vast universe. Some scientists say that the number of stars in creation is equal to all the grains of all the sands on all the beaches of the world. Yet this complex sea of spinning stars functions with remarkable order and efficiency.
Think about this: God chose our galaxy from all the other galaxies. Then he chose planet earth. From all the places on the earth he chose Israel. From all the places in Israel he chose Jerusalem. There are myriads of streets and places in Jerusalem . . . but, He chose the Temple Mount. There are more than 100 structures on The Temple Mount. But He chose to place the 1st and 2nd Temples on a precise location. Inside the Temple He chose the Holy of Holies for his own divine presence. And more detailed than that . . . He chose you!
Have a blessed Christmas this year! Thank you for helping us take the gospel to the world. We stand amazed that people in 74 nations* are listening to our messages and reading our blog.
In His Service,
* 74 Nations: December 2, 2013

It is usually the spring of the year when tornadoes begin to form . . . not the late fall.
People were told to hide in their basements.
But the wind strength of the tornadoes was so strong that houses were shredded and the contents dumped on top of the people below.
In Indiana, where I live, we had 80 mph winds.
Four miles south of my house seven huge telephone poles were ripped apart like toothpicks.
The first thing that came into my mind and spirit was that Illinois, which just passed the "men can marry men law", and "women can marry women law", was the hardest hit.
Think of it: 200 miles per hour winds!
Two other things were clearly impressed on my mind: WASHINGTON AND MANHATTAN, both towns in Ilinois, were the hardest hit.
Could these storms be prophetic?
Was this a warning that WASHINGTON, D.C. AND MANHATTAN in NEW YORK CITY will both experience the judgment of God in the coming days?
All I know for sure is that 80 tornadoes in November is VERY, VERY UNUSUAL.
The most amazing thing of all is that only seven people were killed!
WAIT AND WATCH AND SEE WHAT GOD DOES IN THE COMING DAYS!
"So a mighty wind will sweep them
away . . " (Hosea 4:19).
One million seconds = eleven days.
One billion seconds = 31 years.
One trillion seconds = 36,720 years.
From Jesus till now = 2,000 years.
From Abraham till Jesus = 2,000 years.
From Adam till Abraham = 2,000 years.
From Adam till now = 189,345,600,000 seconds ago (6,000 years).
Our national debt = 14 trillion dollars.
If you counted one dollar each second . . . it would take you 440,080 years to count it all. :)

JEWS HAVE WON 20% OF ALL NOBEL PRIZES.
JEWS HAVE WON 41% OF ALL THE NOBEL PRIZES IN ECONOMICS.
JEWS COMPRISE LESS THAN 0.2% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION.
THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 14 MILLION JEWS IN THE WORLD.
ABOUT HALF OF THEM LIVE IN ISRAEL!
THERE ARE ABOUT 1.6 BILLION MUSLIMS (23% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION).
YES! THAT IS ONE BILLION SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND!
MUSLIM WINNERS OF THE NOBEL PRIZE: 10.
YES! ONLY TEN.
AND WHO ARE THE PEOPLE RUNNING AROUND THE WORLD MURDERING PEOPLE AND BLOWING THINGS UP?
I DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION.
EVERYONE KNOWS - - - EVEN THE MUSLIMS - - - EVEN THE AMERICANS - - - EVERYONE EXCEPT OUR PRESIDENT.
AND WHO ARE THE PEOPLE THE PRESIDENT IS PLACING IN GOVERNMENT POSITIONS? WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALMOST UNLIMITED ACCESS TO THE WHITE HOUSE?
* THE NOBEL PRIZE IS AN ANNUAL, INTERNATIONAL PRIZE FIRST AWARDED IN 1901 FOR ACHIEVEMENTS IN PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, PHYSIOLOGY, MEDICINE, LITERATURE, ECONOMICS, AND PEACE. JEWS HAVE WON A WHOPPING 41% OF ALL THE PRIZES IN ECONOMICS. THE FIRST JEWISH RECIPIENT WAS ADOLF VON BAEYER. HE WAS AWARDED THE PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY IN 1905.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:
“There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 per cent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of one per cent of the landmass. But that’s too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today… No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.”—Joseph Farah, “Myths of the Middle East”
WHEN THEY ARE NOT KILLING JEWS, THEN THEY ARE KILLING EACH OTHER---SYRIA, EGYPT, LEBANON, ETC., ETC.
But there is no such thing as a Palestinian people; no such thing as a Palestinian history; and no Palestinian language exists. There has never been any independent, sovereign Palestinian state in all of recorded history – let alone an Arab independent state of Palestine.
FACTS DO NOT MAKE THINKING PEOPLE ANGRY!
GENESIS 16:12 "THIS SON OF YOURS (ISHMAEL) WILL BE A WILD MAN, AS UNTAMED AS A WILD DONKEY! HE WILL RAISE HIS FIST AGAINST EVERYONE, AND EVERYONE WILL BE AGAINST HIM. YES, HE WILL LIVE IN OPEN HOSTILITY AGAINST HIS RELATIVES."
There you go, pal! Now you are really accomplishing something and making your contribution to the human race?
Why do I keep getting emails from Arabs cursing and threatening to kill me? Instead . . . face the truth and CHANGE. JESUS LOVES YOU! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SPEND YOUR ENTIRE LIFE BEING ANGRY. GOD IS ABLE, THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS, TO PUT LOVE N YOUR HEART.
God says: “See, the day of Yahweh is coming—a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger—to make the earth desolate and destroy the sinners within it. The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless…at the wrath of Yahweh Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.”...“Rejoice, O nations, with his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and his people.” (Isaiah 13:9-13; Deuteronomy 32:43)
The Jerusalem Connection says: The overwhelming naïveté of the Obama administration regarding Iran is absolutely stunning. Is it any wonder that the U.S. is seen as a joke – a totally toothless tiger? A negotiated agreement with Iran is impossible. In the last analysis the ultimate and necessary answer to Iran is not only the destruction of its nuclear ambitions but also the total dismantling of its governing infrastructure. Time will tell if any nation, other than Israel has the moral courage to stop a demonic Iran. Certainly God will when the Day of Yahweh comes. And if you want a glimpse of what that day will look like, read Revelation 16. It appears that is where the Obama administration wants to lead us.

NOW EVEN THE DEMOCRATS ARE PULLING AWAY FROM HIM.
POOR, LONESOME, ISOLATED, CONTAMINATED, NARCISSISTIC, BEN.
ALL THE POLITICIANS KNOW THAT IF THEY DON'T QUICKLY GET FAR AWAY FROM HIM THEY CANNOT BE RE-ELECTED.
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.~Marcus Cicero
America's Hunters: The Largest Army
AMERICA'S HUNTERS ---
A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin ..
Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!Over the last several months, Wisconsin 's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
(That’s more men under arms than in Iran . More than France and Germany combined. )
These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms,
and NO ONE WAS KILLED.
That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and
Michigan 's 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.
Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the
hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states.
It's millions more.
________ The point? _______________________________________
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower!
Hunting... it's not just a way to fill the freezer.
It's a matter of national security.
That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
Food for thought, when next we consider gun control, whether you agree with it or not.
Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters
don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain...
What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

So he invited 1,000 (yes, one thousand) of his "friends", minions, yes-men, and money-grabbers to the biggest party in history.
Free food. Free booze. And lots of sex.
And why not???? It's all paid for by the taxpayers' nickel! :) How fun.
No group of people had ever seen such a bash!
Then, as though they were not having enough fun, "THE BIG GUY" decided to go over the top and do something no one had ever done at a party . . . But before we give the details . . . something awesome happened . . . and it was not even Halloween!
A HAND APPEARED!
Yes, no arm, no body, no head, . . . just a hand.
And the hand began writing on the wall in the huge room where the one thousand party-goers had been whooping it up.
Yes, this was like a huge wet blanket at the party. Even though many of the folks were a little tipsy, this sobered them up BIG TIME! Even the "BIG ONE" sobered up.
All the laughter ceased. There was not a sound in the room. Total silence!
And within a few minutes the "BIG ONE" was murdered. Hundreds and hundreds of people were butchered, tortured, raped, demeaned, and humiliated beyond imagination. Actually . . . everyone at the party died . . . except one person.
We'll tell you about him later . . .
And . . . this is a true story!
Oh, . . . just in case you thought this had something to do with anything current . . .
The date was October 12, 539 B.C. :) - - - a mere 2,552 years ago.
The "BIG GUY" was a man by the name of Belshazzar.
What did he do at the party that preceded "THE HAND" that wrote a message on the wall?
He decided that they were not having enough fun . . . so he ordered that solid-gold cups be brought to the party. This way the party-goers would be able to say that they drank the booze from solid-gold cups! Who else throws a party like this?
But . . . the cups were special cups. They had been stolen from the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem . . . AND THEY HAD BEEN DEDICATED TO THE LIVING GOD!!!!!
Oh, yes, we learn from this story . . . Don't mess with the living God. Make fun of religion as much as you want to. Point out that so many "Christians" are hypocrites. Have the time of your life pointing out how screwed up religious people are.
But . . . don't mess with the Living God!
As soon as the gold cups had been brought to the banquet hall, and the party-goers began drinking out of them, THE HAND appeared.
The "BIG ONE" had crossed the line and the Living God was a little more than angry.
And . . . unknown to the "BIG ONE", the Living God had set the whole thing up.
Even though huge bronze gates defended the city, an angry army found a way to break into the party. The plan was ingenious!
And the timing of this entire scenario could only be God-breathed.
A river ran through the city where the party was going on.
The enemy army diverted the river, making it possible for their soldiers to walk under the huge brass gates that made the party hall "impregnable", and then butcher the one thousand party-goers . . . including the "BIG ONE".
You can read this whole story in chapter five of the book of Daniel . . . yes, in the Bible. And it was Daniel who was the only one who survived at the party.
Those of you with discernment will recognize "Abaddon"
THE DESTROYER: אֲבַדּוֹן
"Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon . . ." (Rev. 9:11).
Yes, our nation at this hour is being systematically DESTROYED by this same demonic principality!
Don't believe it? Then read it for yourself on this cylinder of
This cylinder is in the British Museum.
If you have trouble reading it, just click on the picture.
Well . . . that was a long time ago. But this is now: http://news.yahoo.com/video/party-time-white-house-014315900.html
Oh, . . . speaking of "DRINKING CUPS", check this out:
4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when he was born. That makes his father's date of birth approximately 1936. - WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Obama's father was 3 years old at the start and 9 when the war ended. Based on his own words about his father, Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination and political purposes (either way it still qualifies him as a "liar").
Giora Eiland, former head of the National Security Council (which advises the prime minister), said: “One out of every ten homes in Lebanon now has a rocket launcher or Hezbollah weapons stored in it. Civilian homes are constructed in a way that allows the roof to open up for the firing of a rocket at Israel. Added up, the number of rockets and missiles reached is 200,000. Israel should reject the idea that it must fight against terrorist guerrilla organizations embedded in civilian areas, and return to the idea that it is fighting enemy states.”
"It is impossible to defeat guerrilla forces, Eiland argued; but if the enemy and its territory are defined as a hostile state, victory becomes possible once again. In 2006, we tried to do something impossible by hitting rocket launchers. If tomorrow there is a third Lebanon war and if we try to do the same thing, the result will be worse. We and Hezbollah have improved tactically."
"If war does break out, treating Lebanon as an enemy would end the conflict in three days, not three weeks. This entails bombing bridges and other state-affiliated targets, though staying clear of civilian sites like schools and hospitals. It is not right for us to accept the idea of fighting low-intensity counter-terrorism conflicts. We should move to an interstate conflict system."
