1 I have a message from God in my heart
concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God
before their eyes.
2 In their own eyes they flatter themselves
too much to detect or hate their sin.
3 The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
they fail to act wisely or do good.
4 Even on their beds they plot evil;
they commit themselves to a sinful course
and do not reject what is wrong.
5 Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
7 How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.
10 Continue your love to those who know you,
your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 May the foot of the proud not come against me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 See how the evildoers lie fallen—
thrown down, not able to rise!
This prayer was written in part a few days before the planned invasion but was completed in the middle of the night by President Roosevelt as he stayed up to listen to reports on the progress of the U.S. and Allies’ landings on France’s beaches, with massive forces concentrating on the coast of Normandy. He submitted it to the press the following morning to print up for the American people to read and consider it and to follow along as he read it at 9pm on June 6th, 1944. He asked the entire nation to pray for a quick victory by God’s gracious hand. And cities across the nation had churches filled with citizens that were already doing just that.
Yeah, this is a great analysis-thanks, David!
It was said that he was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome so here is an article to dispute that diagnosis. I believe he could have had this autism, which is characterized with outbursts of anger-something that would have been observed in the home life- but it was also coupled with his narcissisism.
The Isla Vista Shooter: This is Not the Autism Spectrum
The 63rd annual National Day of Prayer, May 1, 2014, will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne.
Our theme for 2014 is One Voice, United in Prayer, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Romans 15:6 as our Scripture for this year: “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
A vital sermon to hear if we want to see revival~
No other god of any religion has been subjected to humiliation for their followers’ sake but our only true God, our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ. No man-made religion makes their god suffer as Christ did. It just doesn’t sell.
I’m going to share both sides of this “prophetic issue.”
On the one hand, world history shows that significant changes happen for Israel during the Blood Moons that affects everyone:
On the other hand, is this current Blood Moons event truly a biblical prophetic one?
Every prophecy of Scripture has had its opponents throughout history as well as in today’s world. But, in today’s world we see an abundance of those who will make merchandise of God’s holy prophetic word such as never before since the resurrection of Christ Jesus. Can we trust what those exploiters say about such events? Nevertheless, we do have to admit that we are nearer the Lord’s return to rule and reign on the earth.

Western culture as a whole, and the United States in particular, has had a tremendous amount of light from God, and experienced many blessings from His hand. Yet, this culture seems intent upon continuing on its path to self-destruction. A few thoughts from the Christian worldview (while we are still allowed, we would hope, to express them).

(Subtitled) The fascinating documentary goes behind-the-scenes of Susan’s first solo tour, which saw her perform across her beloved Scotland in the summer of 2013.
One might be surprised that they know someone with Asperger’s Syndrome, a type of functioning autism.
This is the 1 hour live CNN coverage:
Rick Warren says the moon god of islam is the same God of Judaism and Christianity. That makes him a false teacher and heretic.
“Who knew that Rick Warren and Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) were this close?” Spencer wrote. “Did they sing a few choruses of Cat’s nasheed that contains the lines, ‘I’m praying to Allah to give us victory over the kuffar?’”
Spencer said he was not surprised, however, noting Warren previously has addressed the convention of the Hamas- and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of North America.
Warren, Spencer said, also “apologized to Muslims, but wasn’t sure what for” and now “he is palling around with Mr. Peace Train” in the name of “dialogue” and “interfaith outreach.”
Spencer quoted from a 1989 New York Times report of Stevens’ response when asked about attending a demonstration to burn an effigy of Rushdie: “I would have hoped that it’d be the real thing.”
(there are many links in above article pointing out some of Warren’s exploits)
