Here's an email I received from my Dad this morning on the current global situation. His insight is pretty helpful to understand our current situation. Thought I'd pass it along, enjoy...

This morning I woke up and during my sleep my mind had connected some dots. We have amazing world events - pretty similar in many ways to the 1930's.

It started with Republican Paulson's decision to let Lehmen fail - so here is an interesting sequence...

1) Letting Lehman Bros. fail caused the world gross national product output to almost stop for 18 months
2) That caused our American mortgage industry to collapse and within months the USA had to take extreme and drastic Federal steps to prevent the other 5 investment (mortgage reseller) banks from collapsing such as phase one, two and then TARP.
3) Smaller banks failed around the USA in huge numbers
4) Global banks began to fail since they were stuck with worthless mortgage paper sold to them by the US investment banks
5) USA unemployment skyrocketed to 10.2% in 2010 and has continued to hover there plus or minus 1 %
6) The Euro began to drop in value
7) European Countries that were overspending got caught in the global downturn and had to buy more money
8) Real USA unemployment (underemployment or those whom unemployment payment expired) rose to 20 plus %
9) USA housing values dropped between 29% to 60% - depending on which area you were looking at
10) The stock markets dropped 30 to 50% and families savings were consumed by this drop - so that their two biggest net worth calculations dropped 60% for most families.
11) Housing foreclosures rose so fast that banks have been afraid to foreclose on homeowners. I know one family that has not made a mortgage payment for more than 2 years and the banks have not foreclosed. They know there is too many foreclosed homes in inventory and figure it is better to have the homeowner live in the home vs. leaving it empty.
12) World Tourism visiting other countries radically declined
13) The Tea Party won enough legislative seats to be a power
14) The Tea Party was angry about taxes and federal debt when they hit Washington - although they were in experienced in economics, politics or Global impacts
15) Mideastern countries counting on oil sales found sales were off due to high prices and their income radically declined
16) Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy came to the edge of bankruptcy
17) American consumers radically cut back their spending for the second time in two years
18) The Mideast raised oil prices to offset their banking and tourism losses
19) Mideastern sales of oil declined because major American and European consumers drove less, and the newer cars got better mpg
20) The Mideastern countries saw huge unemployment in the 20 to 40 year olds because of their local sagging economies.
21) The Mideast riots began as their oil and tourist dollars declined - Tunisia and Egypt have 1/3 of the GDP based on tourism (I don't know about the rest of the Mideast. But Dubai found their huge national investment in tourism was already faltering.
22) We scared the bejabbers out of the world markets by massive delays in raising the debt - which turned out this was like threatening to let Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, etc go bankrupt.
23) Meanwhile early "Back-to-school" sales are showing a very weak consumer - and is usually those sales are the forecaster of the Christmas season
24) Today - the world markets react to a general fear factor as for the last 8 weeks they contemplated the global financial disaster that could result by the USA defaulting.- the impact is similar to America actually having defaulted.

Can you begin to imagine the world reaction if we actually defaulted? Oh my gosh ....

Now here are some more dots to ruminate over....for kicks I googled wiki about the tax revolt 1930-1933. Here is the link to save you time - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_revolt - copy and paste it. Then read the 1930 Tax revolt background and compare it to 2009 and 2010 and then to our world today. The world was in a depression started by the American bank failures. The Euro/Baltic global reaction was to blame their own banks and consequently the Euro/Baltic/Russian Jewish bankers and their banking establishment. So the The European and Baltic governments needed scapegoats and selected the hapless Jews.

European Inflation went rampant as companies tried to raise prices to cover their losses. USA went into massive unemployment. The Euro/Baltic people base become extremely angry at their governments and began to quietly and then violently protest their governments. In my high school history books were pictures of German women going to the grocery store carrying large shopping bags filled with German Marks to buy a loaf of bread. Meanwhile the Japanese economy was flourishing.  They went to war against Russia to build a railway in order to export goods to the Western world. And shortly after their Japanese economy ramped up, Europe went to war - but we didn't. The affluent Japanese wanted to drive cars, and fly planes - but because of their SinoRussian war the Japanese businessmen needed to manufacture large amount of goods. To wage war and to manufacture goods, they had to import all of the basic materials, steel, rubber, aluminum, copper, tin, nickle, oil etc. They turned away from the Russian war and instead went to war with China, Korea, and the Northern edge of Indonesia, where they won the lands containing these commodities. FDR sent an ultimatum to Japan to back away from all of Indonesia and the Philippines, especially from the Indonesian Oil fields, and within 3 months we had World War, Pearl Harbor and Europe.

Right now we have our hopes pinned on Germany's ability to hold the poorly managed European countries together. The Mideast remains a crap shoot. As those governments topple or change, will the replacements be good global friendly governments? Our traditional ally India is flourishing and has enough raw material to support their economy. But they have bad neighbor Pakistan and Afghanistan at their back door - both countries a doing poorly. So does flourishing China and their trend seems to better global citizens not more hostile. Africa remains an unknown. But these are all threads that we might be wise to support.
Sobering dots when you connect them. I think that it might be a good idea for us all to pray for God to strongly  intervene in our world once again.

Corinne's Grandfather's Passing

Wednesday, 27 July 2011 21:47 Published in Blog

Corinne's grandfather passed away this past weekend. We both loved him deeply. He was a particular blessing to me since I didn't know my natural grandparents well and he was a tremendous man of God. His life is a testimony to the truth that when we live for the Lord, our joy and impact for good extends beyond our years on this earth.

Here's his obituary,

 

Jan 20, 1919 – Jul 23, 2011

   
Roger Alan Comfort, 92, of Modesto, California went home to be with our Lord Saturday, July 23, 2011 while at home with family. A memorial service will be held on August 27 at 11:00am, at Big Valley Grace Community Church, Modesto.

    Condolences and memoirs may be sent to Jim Comfort, 5501 Chenault Dr., Modesto, CA  95356

   Roger was born January 20, 1919, in Baltimore, Maryland, the second of three sons, to Newman and LouElla Comfort. He moved with his family to Oakland, California in 1924 where he met and married his wife Lois in 1943.  In 1956 they moved to the hills above Hayward, California with their six young children. Roger worked as a machinist at Pacific Roller Die, near Hayward Airport, and was an active member of Redwood Chapel Community Church in Castro Valley for nearly 30 years. Upon retiring, Roger and Lois moved to Twain Harte, California in June of 1993 and then to Modesto in 2004 due to ailing health. For the past seven months he and his loving wife have enjoyed the wonderful care provided by the staff at Bethel Retirement Community of Modesto, and the expertise of Community Hospice.

   Roger’s greatest form of relaxation was as a private pilot with the Oakland Squadron Flying Club which flew out of Oakland Airport’s North Field and then eventually out of Hayward Airport. He enjoyed camping, hiking, swimming and target shooting. He also worked a few side jobs included selling for Fuller Brush, Zonolite roofing materials, as well as insurance and real estate. After retiring and moving to Twain Harte, he even got a job at the new Wal-Mart store in Sonora.

   Roger’s warm smile and sense of humor will be missed by all who came into contact with him. But most importantly, he is remembered by his children as the dad who would, every night, pray blessings upon each of them and their family while he knelt beside his bed.

Roger was preceded in death by his father and mother, his brothers Philip and Newman jr. He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Lois, their sons Dr. Stephen A. Comfort (Cheryl) of Walnut Creek, CA, James R. Comfort (Suzanne) of Modesto, John D. Comfort (Jackie) of Hughson, CA, Timothy T Comfort (Janet) of Castro Valley, CA; daughters Martha D. Kemptner (Rick) of Manteca, Ruth A Roehl (Erich) of Redding, CA; 27 Grandchildren and 46 Great-grandchildren. Thank you dad for the godly heritage and example you have left for us.

Paul's Example of Noble Thinking

Friday, 01 July 2011 12:39 Published in Blog

47 Ways Paul Demonstrated Noble Thinking in the Book of Philippians

In Philippians 4:8, Paul lists several practical domains that are to govern the thought-life of God’s people. Among them is the word “Noble” or “Honorable”. Another way to translate the word would be “Dignified.” There’s not much available on this grand topic, but here are 47 observations that I made of how Paul exemplified noble thinking throughout the letter to the Philippians:

1. 1:3 Thankfulness towards God

2. 1:4 A life of prayer towards God

3. 1:9 A mind growing in knowledge

4. 1:9 A mind growing in discernment

5.  1:10 Approval of the things that are excellent

6.   1:12-13 An optimistic/silver-lining attitude

7.   1:14 Ability to see the redemptive value in a trial

8.   1:17 Extending grace towards others rather than unforgivness or a critical spirit

9.   1:18 Joy at the proclamation of the Gospel

10. 1:19-20 – Optimism in his situation

11. 1:21-22 A mindset of being sold-out for Christ

12. 1:28 Not easily being in fear over situations

13. 1:29 Trusting in Christ during conflict

14. 2:2 Being unified around spiritual truths

15. 2:3 A view that considers others as more important than yourselves

16. 2:4 A view that looks to the interests of others

17. 2:5-11 An attitude that seeks to be like Christ

18. 2:12 An attitude of fear and trembling as we are living out our salvation

19. 2:14 An attitude devoid of grumbling and disputing

20. 2:21 An attitude that seeks Christ’s interests rather than your own

21. 2:24 trust in the Lord

22. 2:26 A concern for the emotional condition of others

23. 2:30 Valuing the work of the Gospel even above one’s own life

24. 3:3 No confidence in fleshly religion

25. 3:7-8 Willingness to lose everything for Chris’s sake

26. 3:9 Seeking righteousness from God on the basis of faith

27. 3:10 A desire to know God

28. 3:10 A desire to know the power of the resurrection

29. 3:10 A desire to become like Christ, even in death

30. 3:12 A desire to press on to achieve the things Christ has called you to do

31. 3:13 Not dwelling on the past

32. 3:15 An attitude of submission and unity

33. 3:17 Noting and following the example of other mature believers

34. 3:18 A tender heart for the condition of the lost

35. 3:20 An attitude of waiting for Christ to return to bring us home

36. 4:1 Standing firm in the Lord, not being swayed from God’s truth or unity of Spirit

37. 4:2 Harmonious living with others

38. 4:3 A willingness to help others in spiritual need

39. 4:4 A heart of rejoicing, at all times

40. 4:5 A gentle spirit

41. 4:6 Peaceful, non-anxious living

42. 4:6 A sustained habit of bringing everything to the Lord in prayer

43. 4:7 Allowing the peace of God guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus

44. 4:8 Thinking upon that which is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, good repute, excellence and being praise-worthy.

45. 4:11 Contentment at all times

46. 4:14 A heart to share with others

47. 4:23 God’s grace renewing and reviving our spirits

Ordo Salutis = Order of Salvation

Saturday, 21 May 2011 10:14 Published in Blog

Here's a quick chart on how God works in our salvation:

Order of Salvation Chart

The blue is all of the work of God.

The Green is where we are involved (though this is still the work of God).

The purple is the presence of the Lord.


a.            God predestined some for salvation (decree from eternity past)

(1)            Ephesians 1:4-5 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will…

b.            God provided the atonement for those elected

(1)            1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.”

c.            God called those who were predestined

(1)            John 6:65 And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”

(2)            John 6:44 “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.

d.            God regenerates those whom He called

(1)            John 3:6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

(2)            2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation”

e.            Those who are regenerated believe and repent

(1)            Acts 3:19 “Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;”

f.            Those who believe and repent are justified

(1)            Romans 5:1 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,”

g.            Those who repent are reconciled to God

(1)            Romans 5:1 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,”

(2)            2 Corinthians 5:18 “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,”

h.            Those who are reconciled are adopted

(1)            John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,”

i.            Those who are adopted are transformed to be like Christ

(1)            2 Thessalonians 2:13 “But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.”

j.            Those who are predestined will one day be glorified

 

(1)            Romans 8:30 “And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified…”

Why the Apocrypha is NOT part of God's Word

Saturday, 09 April 2011 19:25 Published in Blog

Josephus – “From Artaxerxes to our own times a complete history has been written, but has not been deemed worthy of equal credit with the earlier records, because of the failure of the exact succession of the prophets (Against Apion 1.41).”

Quick Reasons the Apocrypha Is Not Inspired

1) They were not considered to be part of the Bible until the Council of Trent in 1546 when the Catholics were reacting to Luther's rejection of them. At that time, they were they made officially part of the Bible.

2) The NT never quotes from the Apocrypha. Supposed quotes are not really quotes at all. Jude 14-15 refers to the book called I Enoch (specifically I Enoch 60:8 and 1.9), but that is not a part of the Apocrypha. Likewise, his references are not as though they are inspired words of God.

3) Jews classified which writings were canonical, and they did not include the apocrypha.

“When I came to the east and reached the place where these things were preached and done, and learnt accurately the boks of the Old Testament, I set down the fact and sent them to you. These are their names: five books of Moses, Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Joshua the son of Nun, Judges, Ruth, four books of Kingdoms, two books of Chronicles, the Psalmes of David, the Proverbs of Solomon and his Wisdom, Ecclesiastes, the Son of Songs, Job, the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, the Twelve in a single book, Daniel, Ezekiel, Ezra.” (Melito, Bishop of Sardis, c. 170 AD).

4) Major church fathers didn't use the Apocrypha. Jerome, the translator of the Vulgate, didn't consider them inspired and disputed with Augustine about them. Likewise, Josephus excluded them. The Council of Jamnia (90 AD) did not recognize them.

5) When the scripture was being translated into other languages (e.g. Syriac) the Apocrypha was not included in the translations.

6) No early council of churches endorsed them.

7) The Jews felt that the Holy Spirit stopped prophesying after Malachi in 400 BC whereas the Apocrypha was written after 200 BC.

“After the latter prophets Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi had died, the Holy Spirit departed from Israel…(Babylonian Talmud, Yomah 9b).

8) They never claim to be the word of God.

9) All of the Catholic arguments for them being inspired only prove that the early church fathers esteemed them. In fact, there is no set of ancient scriptures that includes a full set of the Catholic Apocryphal books. Nor has there ever been initial, continual, full recognition by the church.

10) There is no record of Jesus and the Jews having any disagreement over the extent of the Canon, though an argument from silence, it seems evident that there was total agreement about what was the Word of God.

Heretical Passages in the Apocrypha:

Purgatory:

Wisdom 3:5-6

Meritorious Good Works:

Tobit 4:10, 12:9; Sirach 3:30, 29:11-12

Praying for dead

2 Maccabees 12:45

How the Bible Came Together

Saturday, 09 April 2011 19:09 Published in Blog

Since the DaVinci Code came out a few years ago, many people have talked about how and when the Bible came together. The fancy term for this is the word “Canon” which means “standard” or “rule”. When “canon” is used of the Bible, it means the books that the church considers inspired and authoritative for all churches and all time.

Now, although the DaVinci Code casts various doubts on the origin of the Bible, the matter of the Canon of the Bible is not nearly as dubious as skeptics would like to make is sound. The following are some important and compelling points:

The last book of the Bible (Revelation) was written between 94-96 AD. When the early church writings are examined (some which may have even been written earlier than the book of Revelation) it can be seen that most of the New Testament that we currently use was already considered inspired literature.

In 110 AD, only about 15 years after the Book of Revelation was written, most of the New Testament letters were being used and cited by the church fathers. Indeed, by 115 AD we have evidence that all but two NT letters were being used by the church. It is even possible that those remaining two letters were being used and yet never referred to in written form.

Soon after the New Testament texts were being used, it became apparent to the early church that there needed to be a formal list of which books needed to be preserved, translated by missionaries, died to protect, etc. By 206 AD in the Barococcio Codex, all the New Testament books except for one were included. That remaining book, the Book of Revelation, can be understood to have not yet been widely distributed because the work itself was so new on the scene.

No doubt, during these days, individual churches had established a specific list of books they considered inspired. While individual churches may have had their lists, that list was formally ratified by all the Christian churches at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD.

We need to realize that prior to the Council of Nicea in 325 AD, it is not as though spurious books were floating around and being used. Rather, baring only a couple of exceptions, no other books were ever considered to be inspired.

As for those exceptions, they are not very troubling. Indeed, they were works that were used by just a particular group or church. Its not a conflict of inspiration to even wonder if perhaps God had in fact given those letters to those churches as inspired literature. It seems clear that there were other letters written by Paul, and authoritative, but not included in the 27 book canon we use. I think its fair to say that it is possible that at some level, God had inspired them but that they were not intended for the universal church to embrace as authoritative. Thus, the early church recognized this dynamic and did not include them in the canon.

Lastly, although we are discussing the course of history and when the church had total agreement on the Canon, still we need to remember that the canon was actually closed when the last New Testament book was completed. The church’s recognition of these inspired texts did not make them inspired. What made them inspired was the breath of God. Thus, what we have today is the very breath of God in verbal form (2 Timothy 3:16) preserved to us in our Bibles.
