911- America’s Golden Calf

This is a fascinating video below: marking the significance of 911 to America, by Rabi Jonathan Cahn.

It is a warning for repentance; it shows the birth of our economic strength in New York  when Henry Hudson sailed up the river and founded Manhattan with a trade station on September 11, 1609 this was  “the gate” later having two “Twin Towers” the entrance to America’s economic power!

The Pentagon began on September 11, 1941 as a Military Superpower; this was predicated by God, to a nation’s founding once dedicated by Washington’s inauguration on 26 Wall StreetFinancial DistrictManhattanNew York City on April 30, 1789. Washington warned not to turn away from God, or we would face destruction.

The new financial group was known as the “Buttonwood” group (Sycamore tree) later called Wall Street. On September 11, 1789 Alexander Hamilton was named the first U.S. Secretary to the Treasury.

All this represents the blessings and downfall of America as a Superpower to the world, the symbolism is reflective of the warnings given to Israel before her destruction.

It was a Sycamore tree (the Biblical symbol of blessing) which was destroyed in Manhattan on September 11, 2001, along with the Pentagon as a wall of Military might. 9-11-2001: was only the beginning of judgment towards America in 7 year cycles– (Biblical Jubilee) which rather could have been a renewal of blessings if we had repented from our wickedness instead!

Shutting down the opposition

Maybe if we keep our mouths shut, no one will notice that we belong to the Lord…?    That sounds like Peter, prior to Pentecost!

[PS; I forgot to mention energy & environmental controls as well – towards the end of the video.]

Elitism

It is most interesting to me that the scriptures talk about a humble and contrite heart (faith of a child) being required to follow the Lord. In contrast to this, Pride and coupled with Elitism seems to me to be the way of controlling others – even as a small god. The “new world leader” will be revealed as a caring and loving sort towards humanity, but the Bible later speaks about an abrupt change of demeanor as one demanding to be worshipped as God: or face death! The first step in controlling people is to be able to track them, and that you cannot buy or sell without the “Mark of the Beast” (Satan). The Lord will crush him with the brightness of his coming, but in my estimation, we have to have a build up first towards global tracking and control – for the “Good” of all Humanity!

My Two Cents worth.

As one who was born under 48 stars in the American flag, I have watched the decline of a great nation ever since!

Powerful Leaders have conspired against free people since tribalism began in the world: Matthew 24:37-39 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Humanism, (anti-Christian) anti-Bible, within our society with the opening of the “establishment clause” with the growing of the Atheist and Feminist movement of the 1960s was propelled forward by people like Madalyn Murray O’Hair in 1962, changed the policy of mandatory prayers and Bible reading in Baltimore public schools: the area in which I grew up.

This “new religion” of humanism. had slowly migrated into our school systems after World War Two, primarily because of a teacher’s shortage within the United States at the time. Politically and Militarily, we had defeated the NAZI’s, yet Communism became our new enemy, and nuclear weapons our newest concern with an arms race and Cold War, which morphed into a political space race, including the moon landing in 1969 as put forth by JFK prior to his assassination.

What was NOT foreseen after World War Two, was the acceptance of what is now called “Cultural Marxism” within education, broadcasting, and the many civil liberty groups which enviably grew from a time of great changes.

Ultimately (spoken as a believer in the Gospel), it is not really about the “Nation States” which the Lord preordained after Babel; known as (ethos Biblically) a makeup of a certain people, culture, ideology, religion, and a common language. Rather history is about what the Lord God allows or disallows to transpire, and the “new Globalism” via U.N. mandates is taking form.

The Decline of Western Nationalism

I first witnessed the decline of U.S. Patriotism around 1968 during the Vietnam war. My Dad had a shop which sold American flags, and the sales dropped dramatically after the Tet offensive, never to return – except briefly after the 9-11 attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon. My wife and I had nearly completed our 20 years of military service after the attacks, and were shocked like everyone else, that civilian airliners were used for such destruction and loss of American life.

We both continued to do our part in defense of this Nation; and after returning home from orders cut under Operation Enduring Freedom, just over a year later I would suffer a near fatal heart attack ending my military career as a technician.

I really hate to have to write this next paragraph, because as a loyal soldier, Christian and nationalist; I never wanted to believe it possible that a “New World Order” first spoken publicly by George Bush, seems to me to have reared its ugly head within multiple events in an effort in transforming the world – to the revealing of Satan, and his minions to an unbelieving world!

To me, this is tragic, and increasingly unbelievable to one who actively supports the U.S. Constitution, and who’s family fault in the American Revolution. Yet this is a time of strong delusions, and we all must look at what may make us uncomfortable in the pursuance of a greater truth.

Psychologists call this our “Confirmation Biases” and we all choose to believe what makes us most comfortable, be it our politics, faith, and even our health.

I never wanted to believe that 9-11 was anything but a terrorist attack; yet more and more evidence shows that steal frame buildings have never come down, nor specifically pancaked due to the result of fire. With some mechanical (marine) engineering skill sets, including fuel, some firefighting, and metal stress understanding it is increasingly difficult to believe the “official” physical evidence of towers coming down based solely as a result of commercial airliners horrifically shearing into the upper floors of “two” world trade centers and the complete pulverized results of a nearly freefalling collapse!

Yesterday I saw a mime with Adolph Hitler on it, it read if science were followed instead of Christianity, Hitler would have never come to power. This enraged me, and I wrote “NAZI Eugenics (science) caused Hitler to come to power, not Christianity fool!” The Nuremberg trials, and specifically the Doctors Trail of 22 NAZI doctors who were thought instrumental in establishing the Third Reich were based on this so called “science”.

In my view, when you invoke “humanistic science” (evolution) as supreme, instead of the laws of God (natural law) as supreme; you have just made the laws of man superior to an all knowing God, the creator and keeper of the universe. And both the NAZI’s and the Communists invoke this!

For the lack of a better term, I will call these people “Power Brokers”. Control of humanity is the ultimate goal. First must go individual liberties, which our founding fathers understood in depth! Then free speech, worship, the independent press, enterprise, property, water, food, energy resources and medicine. The staples of any free peoples. The “information age’ has enabled such a lofty goal, with now 24/7 programming continually pumped into the population, and I suspect monitoring of people will be next!

This leads me into another point, in taking away of individual liberties for the collective. And what better way to do it than in the name of science, health care: the supreme issue for the survival and health and wellbeing of all peoples!

Just like the NAZI’s championed Eugenics using “science”, todays Power Brokers globally, also attempt to use science to address the environment, population growth, energy, food, water, air, and even temperature! It is a one size fits all type of control of money and individuals.

As Madeline Albright once slipped up by saying; (Paraphrase) Christianity is the greatest single threat to our country – (read) progressive agenda. So, in my estimation, anything is allowed in pluralistic hedonism, apart from Christianity just like in ancient Rome! The reason is because belief in a higher power is unacceptable to all power brokers who are threatened by such a mindset!

Oh Lord, I hate to say it; but even this global pandemic involving COVID-19 which is very real, has brought down not only this nation, but most all nations globally. I would rather believe this was not planned – or invented yet this does not appear to be the case. And even if this was a naturally occurring phenomenon, why are drugs like Hydroxy Quarantine developed in 1955 for fighting microbes in drinking water so resisted and limited to U.S. doctors who feel it may be effective in certain patients?

I will leave the medical observations to more qualified people than myself; but just like the 9-11 attacks on the Twin Towers, this “Wuhan Virus” seems to me like more of a “Plandemic” by Global Power Brokers, pharmaceutical’s, and high tech, to gain control, rather than the “caring loving global community” which they pretend to be! And to hell with God’s appointed nation states says these Devil’s children!

Wishing everyone a solemn Memorial Day!

Matthew 24:6–7 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

My Dream

The god of this world is coming, and already at work within our midst.
Constant media “suggestion” subverts the mind for easier control…
Anyway. that’s what my dream was all about, a prisoner in my own home!

Faith or Fear

Does this sound like Paul thinks that God’s Grace is being on the Broad Road?
2 Corinthians 12:9
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Building a Following

Confident, convincing, speak well? You would make a great politician, salesman, or even a Cult leader, if you are good at twisting the truth to win people over towards your way of thinking! Only the demagoguery of Lordship Salvation, would call the grace of God a doctrine of the broad road! The Bible warns about such people, so you mustn’t be lazy in checking out the contexts and content of what’s being said!


This is by no means my best video, as I am upset someone would use a Global Pandemic like an opportunist to spotlight themselves while pushing heresies in using the scriptures.

Radical Rut

The most heart wrenching thing to me was in making high marks as an Elder, yet only to be rejected by the Church. I have struggled long and hard to be of service to the Lord, but in all this time “the establishment” seems to dismiss or even marginalize the things of God, learned at the basal or radical level. Perhaps I have missed something, in moving in spiritual power; but for the life of me I don’t know what it is, or what else I can do?

No Comparison

I dedicate this video to a “diamond in the rough” old waterman I knew,
who never compared himself to others.
We would often speak about the Lord while fishing.
See you again my brother!

Trump-Tribulation?

Trump-Tribulation? Is based on my understanding of history and the development of industrialized cultures. Without the ability to harvest fossil fuels for heat engines, metal production, and electricity the industrial revolution would have never taken place, and even the discoveries in modern medicine would never have occurred. The Lord God made all things in which man has developed, and this was no accident to the modern age which we have enjoyed. Unfortunately, Humanism wishes to be the dominating philosophy within the postmodern world and has “dethroned” the idea of using the Bible and a righteous God, so that politically motivated Communism might overcome this “religion” of truth – with a lie, leading humanity ever closer to the final trumpet.

Lamb, Lent, Passover

I unquestionably believe that being partakers with Christ’s blood atonement on the cross is the only way in which we are made acceptable to the Lord. The whole of the Gospel depends upon the shedding of blood for the remission of sin. If men make religious ceremonies which detract from this life-giving truth, they have perhaps even unknowingly, taken away from the truth of the “Lamb who was slain” in our behalves. In this video I “hyper focus” upon the blood of Christ at the atonement, and wonder why anyone would detract from the Lamb’s blood which was shed for us?



The Passover lamb was the sacrifice given at the temple for sins of the jews for that year. Since the temple was destroyed, the jew is no longer permitted to eat lamb at passover.
Lent and Passover have many similarities in recognizing our sin struggle and new birth by the atonement in what Christ has done for us as the lamb of God on the cross; which we celebrate at Easter.
To me, although most would disagree; it seems that eating of Fish on good friday, in observance of Christ hanging on the cross; would be akin to not partaking in the feast of the Lamb: who is Christ, much like the Jew will not partake in eating lamb (any longer at Passover) as they will not recognise the heavenly tabernacle now seated with the blood of Christ on the bemis seat!?
Is not eating lamb, but fish on Fridays actually symbolizing or rejecting the atonement of Christ in action? Even Holy Communion while partaking symbolically in the body and blood of Christ, in remembrance of him; was Christ’s own commandment to his disciples. So, to the contrary would be the sustaining from red meat in which the Roman Catholic tradition insist upon!
Is it just me, or do these other religious traditions deny Christ’s atonement on the cross? And if so, I would submit to the listener that remorse for sin can never be forgiven without the spiritual partaking of receiving the blood and body of the Lamb. The Sanctimonious actions of having remorse for our sins; achieves nothing without partaking in the act of forgiveness by the blood of the lamb!
And although Passover and Lent are religious ceremonies conducted in order to honor our Lord, they are but worthless without taking the blood and body unto ourselves. To me, that is a Satanic twist which purposely misses the point of the cross.

Being Deceived [link]

http://www.wickedshepherds.com/   

Who are the people trying to deceive if possible, even the elect?

Who are the ones who seek to “deceive the many?” We read many times in the scriptures of false Christ’s,
deceitful workers, false prophets, false brethren, deceivers, wolves, false shepherds,
false teachers, etc.
How can we recognize them? What distinguishes them as such? For sure, we know
that there are many of them. Jesus tells us so. He not only tells us so, but He also
identifies them for us!
In Matthew 7:22, Jesus says that “MANY will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord, Was it
not in Your name that we prophesy, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your
name do many wonderful works?

Then I will say to them, I never knew you. Depart from Me, workers of iniquity.”
Jesus singles out their marks as to who these MANY people are:
1) they will/or have prophesied (taught the Bible; preached sermons) in His name
2) drove out many demons in His name
3) have done many wonderful works in His name
Also, something similar in Matthew 24:5: “For MANY shall be coming in My name,
saying, I am the Christ and shall be deceiving MANY.”

Disabled

Like little children, we are powerless, handicapped and disabled to enter in with Christ within our human (or natural) abilities.
Rather, we are totally dependent in faith on the love grace and mercy of our heavenly Father, who provided his Son Jesus in our behalves!
Without Salvation by Grace alone in what Christ has done, we are powerless to enter into the kingdom of heaven by simple childlike faith. This is why many will be gathered up and cast into the fire to be burnt, as they had not believed upon the only name which we might be saved; Jesus Christ.

Liberty in Christ!

 

You have heard it said that “one man’s cult is another man’s religion”… This is only true to the natural mind; however, the Bible teaches in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Our relationship with the Lord is key, as in Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. This is not “necessarily” speaking about fleshly desires of the heart, rather it is speaking about being shown the infinite mercy, love, and truth in being grounded in the Lord, and sometimes in receiving what we desire.
This is a spiritual condition which only the Lord can show us, (often in doctrines) and is not found in the futility of our natural understanding.

Legalism or Grace?

The Saint’s White Raiment only obtained in Christ: is unspotted by works of our flesh.
In my estimation, we only have two choices in how to walk “in Christ” ; we either realize our utter dependency on “Christ’s work alone” within our lives, or we attempt and apply a type of legalism in achieving a superior walk toward perfection, while “using” the Holy Spirit’s assistance.

To the natural understanding within our souls, this may look to be a good option. Yet I firmly believe, this is like taking something blemished and stained of the flesh, and attaching it to an unblemished and unstained article yet expecting it to remain pure.

No place which I’m aware of in the Bible speaks of taking a filthy rag and then laundering it with an unstained garment.

Perfection in Christ?

Perhaps I should have called this “Getting a Grip” in my understanding …
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,


Perfection in Christ? (Texted)

I have walked with the Lord for over 45 years and have had multiple exposures to different Biblical viewpoints. In all this time I have never met anyone who fully and completely comprehends God’s working of salvation for God’s elect.

However, I have met many who in their own conceits think that they understand the fulness of the scriptures; and even worse are some who think that they have become so sanctified – as to no longer make errors in judgment! The ladder types are the most conceited, proud, and arrogant of all type heretics, that they become dangerous to many!

In my view, the Apostle Paul understood and expressed better than anyone the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. Yet the Lord gave him a “thorn in the flesh” (weakness) which tormented him and kept him dependent on the grace of God alone by faith!

I’m thinking to myself recently; that anyone who espouses a near perfect walk with the Lord; could not possibly even know Him, or perhaps at the very least has blinded themselves in prideful delusions within their relationship to the Lord. The mark of a mature follower of Christ, I have discovered is only found in human humility and love towards others, and not found in judgmentalism when using the scriptures!!!

I will not belabor this point, but I do encourage people to use Paul as an example of not being “puffed up” in his own understanding!

Book of Life – NOT blotted!

Unfortunately, many people have misunderstood the scriptures throughout the centuries; yet there is a VAST difference between the Old Testament and the New. Revelation explains about those who are justified by faith.(Rev. 2:7) “To him who overcomes, to him I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God”. {Rev. 3:5) “He that overcomes “by the blood of Christ” is much different than “the wicket” in {Rev.22:19} who “purposely teach false doctrines”, and it is “they” who will pay the ultimate price!

Could The Rapture Be In 2020? [link]

Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker asks if Jesus could come in 2020, while he gives clues from the Bible itself as to when the rapture might be.



Although I am versed in the 70 AD scripture concerning the “666” Antichrist, which undoubtedly occurred: I don’t believe this negates other texts in the scriptures, such as 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10 or Revelation 17: 1-18.

One of the reasons I believe this is that the term “Antichrist” as used in multiple scriptures shows that an Antichrist can be anyone who denies the power of the risen Lord. Whereas, The “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, “The son of Perdition”, “The Beast” could be speaking about more than (an) Antichrist (which we have plenty of even today) when this term was originally coined by John, in –  1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.


So yes “Antichrist” was already in the world at the sacking of Rome and the Temple. Yet it is still plausible that: The one who is filled with the “spirit of anti-Christ” is no different than say the Pope of Rome, or any other Minister who would detract from the Lord Jesus Christ – as the only mediator between God and Man. This alone signifies (an) Antichrist; yet I tend to believe that: The “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, “The son of Perdition”, “The Beast”  are titles to an entirely more powerful being: namely Satan himself!

If this be the case (and I don’t know if it is) we would be likely to see Satan appear as a world leader prior to the return of Christ. Could it possibly be that the term ant-Christ is being confused with the identity of Satan himself? I think it plausible!

Who do we love?

I’m simply jotting some thoughts down today about this subject, primarily to share with others what they need to understand about less then honorable motivations often used, (yet not often realized) by allot of people which would rather have you follow them, than the Holy Spirit of the Lord.

Today I am 61 years of age; and one thing I have learned over the years through experience is that even well-meaning people will often use the Lord and the Bible to win people over to a particular type of thinking and actions. Years ago, the late Pastor Gross, D.D. Th.D. PhD (in psychology) would always tell us that never to believe anything he said, without having the Lord confirm it to you first!

He also said to NEVER put God in a “Box” (a belief system about the Lord) as, he would never be able to show you anything! Outside of foundational Bible truths of our faith, we must learn not be swayed by other’s viewpoints which may stray outside of the Biblical texts.

It is fine to learn how to walk in the Holy Spirit by faith alone, and it is even a good thing to understand the cunningness of our enemy Satan, his demons, and his tricks. One important thing to know about the enemy, is that he normally attacks the mind and emotions first, and then the rest of the body only after he is unsuccessful (for the believer). Put on the full armor of God Ephesians 6 10 24 and also remember, the Lord will not give you more than you are able to “stand”, so this normally never becomes a problem for one who is attempting to live by faith in Jesus Christ! Praise God!

Matthew 24: 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Our understanding of the Bible in balance, both in teachings and contexts is very important so as not to become deceived by the enemy; even an ignorant but well meaning soul when espousing bad Bible doctrines may unwittingly fall into this trap. The Lord is well able to protect his people from heresies taught in the scriptures within the providence of our lives; yet it may take some time for our Lord to weed out false doctrines in our lives, even for the most committed believer.


Rather, it is mush better to be instructed in the faith, just who Christ is to us, and how he functions with his Disciples indwelt by his Holy Spirit.

A proper understanding of the Lord in accordance with the scriptures, is the first step in living a healthy spiritual life devoid of what I will call “superstitions”. Remember, Satan simply attacks the emotions and intellect first, so we must learn to “cast down imagination” to a more rational understanding of the God of the Bible. We must never allow our fears to cripple our balanced understanding of the scriptures and our Lord. In my opinion, this is critical to our understanding so that we don’t go off thinking everything we don’t understand or feel within our lives is demonic: as in most cases it simply is not, rather it is a result of poor understanding, and our emotionally charged thought life.

Often times people who are unbalanced in their understanding of the Bible have distorted to various degrees it’s contexts. It almost goes without saying that, this is how most “Cult” leaders (perhaps unwittingly) deceive others!

I for one have learned this the hard ways to various degrees, and is why the late Dr. Gross always told us to check out what he taught us with the Lord, and not to believe it on face value alone. The reason he said, was that anyone who was more convincing then himself, could lead you down a path that was deceptive. I think that is very sound advice, and it has served me well throughout my Christian life.

It is only natural for most people to have a love for themselves first, and then others. This is why we must not get prone to following men. I have met very well-meaning people who love to share with others their faith in Jesus Christ; and that is a wonderful attribute! Yet one of the principles for an Elder in the Bible is to run their own household well! This is very important for several reasons, but foremost is how they are in dealing with other people, besides themselves. The wisdom is in these texts: Titus 1:6-9 & 1 Timothy 3:1-7.

I have put Titus 1:6-9 first, as it focuses on not being self-willed, loving his wife, and faithful children. Verse 9 speaks about; knowing sound doctrine, as it is (properly) taught, encourage others and being able to refute (Bible) error by those who would oppose it.

1 Timothy 3:1-7 says much the same thing, but Titus 1:6-9 has fewer words; and I will emphasize verse 6, as it talks about not being filled with pride, and a good testimony with others so he won’t be disgraced or snared by Satan.

Those are some very tough standards for an Elder, yet all of them are present for very good reasons, not the least of which is our testimonial to Christ. We have all seen charlatans preach on T.V. a distorted and self-aggrandizing Gospel, which takes on a kind of carnival (Carnal) atmosphere. Most mature believers find this repulsive, and yet oftentimes these selfish preachers love taking pot shots at other ministers, even some who are sound in the faith because of their own pre-conceived beliefs; yet if they are unfounded by scripture it may be just a matter of different opinions.

We see this throughout the scriptures as well, and is why we must be careful that we build up the body of Christ (in love for God) – rather than simply propping up our own beliefs in the flesh. The best answer for not overstepping ourselves, is in accountability not only to the Lord, but to others brethren in humility, rather than a self-righteous pride which many may struggle with, even unknowingly.

How can I write these, things you may ask? That’s very simple to answer, I have done it myself!

If we truly love others more than ourselves, we must understand that we all struggle with similar “conditions of the soul” and be willing to make allowances for others shortfalls, with this we can grow and be of even more help to the Lord as well as edifying our own walks.

I am not speaking about allowing sinfulness in a fellowship at all; rather I am simply addressing that we do not become dogmatic in our Bible doctrines to the point that it destroys others!

Having a heart towards the Lord.

JESUS SAID, “I” AM THE WAY, “I” AM THE GATE, WHICH LEADS TO EVERLASTING LIFE…

The Bible does not say that some “Jester’s” teachings or influence about the Narrow Way or Gate leads to everlasting life! No, it is by having a humble and contrite heart towards the Lord himself in faith by which we enter; and not “once removed” doctrines about the broad road or even the narrow road – as it is Christ Himself  by which we are Saved “by Grace” for the day of redemption, and it is He alone we must learn to follow.

Humility or Pride?


Romans 12:16 *Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

The following verse is a foreshadowing of Christ to a “contrite people”…

Isaiah 63:7-9 (KJV) 7 I will mention the loving kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Savior. 9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity, he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

Spiritual Paradox

 

 

From the widow’s mite to the washing of feet; Jesus always alluded to the paradox between the world and the kingdom of God in this manner. Christian, why do you look down upon your brother or sister as being beneath you?

The Pretty People

Acts 10:34 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: James 2:3 3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Romans 2:9-13 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
