<quoted text>Well,John,see,somethin g that many people don't understand about the invisible spiritual warfare going on around us in this world is that Satan the devil KNOWS that there are many things going on in our world that God CAN NOT DIRECTLY INTERFERE WITH...O.K.?? Satan K-N-O-W-S that God can not interfere. I heard a sermon on local radio one time where this preacher was talking about a covenant between God and man,or something to that effect,and how Satan KNEW that God had to 'back off' for His Name's sake in certain human affairs. It was so enlightening,so powerful!!! But,at the same time,I have NO DOUBT that the anger and the vengence of the Lord is trained upon the evil,the wicked,EVERY DAY,until His Holy punishment comes upon them for their wicked deeds.
Hello Doc,
I wouldn't say that God has backed off. The Holy Spirit is with us. Everything is in acordence with his plan. The plan he chose. He is the one in control. The devil is aware of prophesies that must be fulfiled. Had he have understood them then he would have attempted to destroy them. The book of Revelation is given in a coded way. The Book of Daniel too.
I see this world as our everlasting lesson. We are to become as the angels. Satan fell as an angel. So better to fall on earth and be picked back up again. In way, our beginning is Lucifer's end. Our end is to be as Lucifer's beginning. Born as devil's to become angels. He was the angel who became the devil.

It sems to me you do have a grasp of the spiritual warfare that is going on.

God bless you.

2 Thessalonians 2

2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

Have a great day ALL!

Steve...when you have time you might want to read this article. I found it a few years ago and have used it several times...as a reminder not to get wrapped up in trolls...I refuse to give them what they want.
It is rather lengthy so you might want to read it from home...thought provoking at the least. Here is a small excerpt...
"while technology reduces the social barriers that keep us from bedeviling strangers, it does not explain the initial trolling impulse. This seems to spring from something ugly — a destructive human urge that many feel but few act upon, the ambient misanthropy that’s a frequent ingredient of art, politics and, most of all, jokes. There’s a lot of hate out there, and a lot to hate as well."

Now for the advertisers...
A few years back when I was posting on another forum one guy hit Topix...where it hurts. We had that problem of trolls and hatefulness more there than any forum on Topix...much worse than here. It was vile...nasty...hatefilled...an d it came from everywhere.
After our complaints seemed to be ignore...this guy threatened to go straight to the advertisers. It wasn't an empty threat for this guy...he would have done it.
The problem lies...not in the troll...as long as there are humans...there will be those that want...control...by any means. The problem lies in the fact that we give that control to them...he hand it to them on a silver platter. Invite them to even take more.
Another problem stems from the fact that we use the term to loosely. Most often the label it stuck on anyone that happens to disagree with us. I think that we give some way more credit than what they deserve.
The most vile troll to me...is one that will gain your confidence...declare friendship and respect...and then...when you least expect it...they turn on you like a vulture.
I had that happen on this very thread...a poster sucked me in. I allowed it however...people kept warning me...but in order to do the "right thing" I ignored those warnings. When that poster wasn't able to push my buttons by just attacking me he went after the one thing that he knew I would not be able to resist...my friendship with Ham.
That poster used up all of his chances with me.
Okay...I went on much longer than planned. This however is a topic that is much deeper than someone just coming here to harass...it deals with the "evilness" from within.
Trolls will continue to grow in strength as long as we invite them in to our homes.
What do you do when someone knocks on your door and they are unwelcome visitors??? You turn off the lights and pretend that you are not at home.

<quoted text> Well Doc to begin with I am not pushing or trying to sell Obama to anyone and I personally myself are not putting my trust in ANY flesh and blood whatsoever, I simply find it tiresome in hearing and seeing this paranoid based propaganda by the right wing media against the president ruled every aspect just about of the evening news based off his name and birth place, it is crazy and very much over the top.
Every president and politician in history as had their own personal agenda's and has done all that they could to push those agenda's forward, and when a president feels pride in accomplishing something as important as taking out a big time world terrorist like Bin Laden then it's only natural to recognize the accomplisment, these people are human and political leaders and not born again christians and we shouldn't't look toward them for that purpose.
You mentioned the coming Anti-Christ and his false prophet, so I'm sure you understand that Bible prophecy is something that will happen regardless of whom our elected leaders will be in this country.
Peace (T)
Normally I don't get involved in political discussions. It can become as vile and nasty as some faith based conversations.

Some people (IMO) don't care if they vote based on lies or on truth. Politicians certainly don't care as long as you vote for them.

I think that any politician will "prey" upon citizens based on three things...fear...ones lack of knowledge...and faith. At times they find all 3 of these things in one person. Those are usually the people that will spread information to others even if that information has no merit.

This week I will be filling out my ballot (we vote by mail here). Being new to this area I am not familiar with all the candidates and issues. I could vote just straight party but I will not. I will spend the week researching each vote. If I can not determine what will be the best way to vote based on my own beliefs...I will not mark that particular issue.

IMO...we need to stop falling for all the fear-mongering...educate ourselves to the issues...and don't vote for someone simply because of their faith or lack there of.

And,yes,Lawest,I know that old-fashioned racism is playing a huge part in the anti-Obama tide. I seek God's wisdom everyday concerning matters pertaining to end-time events. And from what I believe I'm gathering about Obama and everything else going on in the world,I firmly believe that an Obama re-election falls more in line with Bible end-time prophecy than a Romney election would. I mean,whether it's Obama,or Romney,religion is going to play a role in either one's presidency. I don't really think that Romney's Mormonism is more signifcant than...whatever it is that Obama really believes.
Then all the last part of your post is really saying is that it doesn't really matter WHO wins this election as fars as it attains to end time events.

All the signs Christ warned us to look out for are beginning to manifest themselves particulary earthquakes in divers places like the 7.7 one that raddled Canada this weekend fot example, the Lord said that these are really the beginning of sorrows, you know for a nation as powerful and as influencial as the united states I often wonder why we do not seem to be mentioned as playing any part in prophetic end time world events, my personal theory is that the U.S. may well have ceased to be a world super power by that chaotic time and I think that you can see tbe gradual signs of it right now and it did not start on the current administrations watch either, I would like to read a little feedback on this one.

Well,actually,it DOES matter. Before human history began in the Garden of Eden,the Lord FOREKNEW who would win this coming election. Many people are talking about 'Save America!!...Save America!!' But you can believe that whoever is president of America will either be willing,or will feel compelled,to go along without whatever circumstances that will exist that they think will make their job as president easier and that they think will make THEM look like an international hero. And you can also believe that NO ONE will be able to incorporate...CHANGES that will succeed in making Holy Bible prophecy a lie.

Hey crazy person, Amanda Todd was harassed and bullied. YOU are the one doing the harassing and stalking. How many posts to me since I said it would be a glorious day if we met in heaven but until then we should go our separate ways? 25? 30? You start out every day the same and people are sick to death of you.
You are like a little baby who when he doesn't get everything exactly like he wants it he throws a temper tantrum. Take off the training diapers. It is time to be a big boy
And who says you love Jesus? The Bible says you will obey him because you love him. 99% of your posts are not obeying him. In fact the entire time you have been on Topix you have refused to even address any posts concerning your poor behavior. Grow up or at least have the common courtesy to leave
It just goes to show what a completely delusional nut case he is. He accuses you and I of harassing and bullying him (as he drags poor Amanda Todd into his delusions) even when we basically ignore the vast majority of his countless daily harassing and stalking posts to us.

If you counted the number of posts he makes to us, than counted the number of posts we make to him, than added it up it wouldn't even be close. His posts would out number ours by at least 10 to 1. But knowing him he's so delusional that he doesn't even see it.

Well,John,let me give an example of what I mean when I say that the devil knows God can't intervene: Two people have a domestic spat that both allow to get out of control to the point that they start shooting at each other and one of them dies. Well,because of man's 'free-will',Satan KNOWS that God CAN NOT intervene in that conflict. What they're doing is wrong,but Satan knows that if they refuse to resolve their conflict peacefully,it's also 'wrong' for God to intervene. Satan KNOWS that,and he's counting on the ensuing chaos to turn people even further away from righteousness. But,as I've said before,God expects us to remain VIGILANT,and COMITTED in doing all we can to keep ourselves,and our loved ones safe from harm and danger.

No it doesn't really, and the last part of your post disagrees with your loud exclamation of "it does matter", no one will be able to change the coming apocalypse because no one CAN change what God has pre-ordained to happen and so feeling compelled to try is a moot point.

You been on Bob Marley's road now ? What about Patmos? Did you see that post?
I wanted to ask... Any news of dear Gramms? Please give her my Love. You know the rest that goes out from us all here.
Also...
Do you know Pastor Simmons from Nth. Carolina? Saw him on the TV last night. Think he was speaking on Revelation, but missed more due to changing to another program just as I tuned in!
Love you and Shalom... on the road!
Hey PW.....I didn't quite understand the Patmos conversation except that when you were there...there was "end times" demonstrations? Right? The only one that we have heard about is the Mayan Calendar saying the end of the world will be December 22,2012......

No I haven't heard about him...What is Pastor Simmons first name? And where in NC is his church?

Keep on the road....:-)

Love you
