This 4th Sanctuary Sunday of Advent Open Thread, with full respect to those who worship God on the Sabbath, is a place to reaffirm our worship of our Creator, our Father, our King Eternal.

It is also a place to read, post and discuss news that is worth knowing and sharing. Please post links to any news stories that you use as sources or quote from.

In the QTree, we’re a friendly and civil lot. We encourage free speech and the open exchange and civil discussion of different ideas. Topics aren’t constrained, and sound logic is highly encouraged, all built on a solid foundation of truth and established facts.

We have a policy of mutual respect, shown by civility. Civility encourages discussions, promotes objectivity and rational thought in discourse, and camaraderie in the participants – characteristics we strive toward in our Q Tree community.

Please show respect and consideration for your fellow QTreepers.

Before hitting the “post” button, please proofread your post and make sure you’re addressing the issue only, and not trying to confront the poster.

If you feel the need to bare your fangs, we have a companion site – called The U Tree – where you can run wild and free with the Wolfpack where all legal free speech is allowed.

But NOT HERE in The Q Tree. Personal attacks, name calling, ridicule, insults, baiting and other conduct for which a penalty flag would be thrown are VERBOTEN.

In The Q Tree, we’re compatriots, sitting around the campfire, roasting hot dogs, making s’mores and discussing, agreeing, and disagreeing about whatever interests us. This board will remain a home for those who seek respectful conversations.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here. Let’s not give the Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.


With the Storm upon us…please remember to Pray for our President.


AND WHAT TIME IS IT?  TIME TO….DRAIN THE SWAMP!!! 

Our movement is about replacing a failed and CORRUPT political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People. ~ Candidate Donald J. Trump


Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:

  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

On this day and every day –

. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, you can find something here that will build you up a little . . . give you a smile . . . and add some joy, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn nor weep.” . . . “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

4th Sunday of Advent ~ Love


~ Love ~

Matthew 22:35-40
35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The whole Law and the writings of the Prophets depend on these two commandments.”

Love – how important? So important that all of the Old Testament Law and all of the writings of the Old Testament prophets depend on it!


John 13:34-35
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Love – the characteristic that Christians must embody by which the world will recognize us!


1 Corinthians 13:13
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Faith, hope and love . . . all important! But the greatest of the three is love!


John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 

There is no greater love than Jesus’ sacrifice for us.


The culmination of Advent, after faith & hope, peace and joy is love, agapé love . . . and rightfully so.  God’s agapé love for us is the reason for the entire existence of mankind.

Agapé love is a specific kind of love.  It is founded in willful actions to put the welfare of others above yourself as in “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  And “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

An example: Empathy or sympathy may involve understanding of and emotion toward an old, frail bag lady struggling painfully up the stairs, but agapé love walks over to that foul-smelling lady and takes her bag and her arm and helps her up the stairs.

God chose us in Him before He laid the foundation of the earth and has destined us for a wondrous eternal future with Himself and Jesus.  God’s plan, all that He has done from the Creation, through the Garden of Eden and all the events of the Old Testament; the birth, ministry, sacrifice, resurrection and 2nd coming of Jesus; through the events of Revelation . . . all of that leads to our eternity with God and Jesus . . . and has been and will be carried out because of God’s agapé love for us.

Why do I think it’s all because of God’s agapé love for us? Because “In love [agapé] He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will – to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.”  In agapé, God planned each person’s existence, from birth through eternity, all before He laid the foundation of the earth.

“Wondrous eternal future” . . . what do we know about that?  Well, certainly not a lot, but since “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has anyone imagined the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”, we can be assured it will be wondrous.

And since “The kingdom of God is . . . righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”, I think we can solidly plan on righteousness, peace and joy in God’s eternity.

We even have a foretaste of what we’ll be doing . . . God granted Jesus “authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those You have given Him. Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.”

The word “know” (γινώσκω, ginóskó), used above, means to know, especially through personal experience.  It will take an eternity, getting to know God, Who is omniscient, and Whose thoughts are not our thoughts, nor are our ways His ways, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than our ways, and His thoughts higher than our thoughts.  And “How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!”.

“Take an eternity” . . . we shouldn’t overlook the enormity of this statement.  “As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty years,”.  We are only on this earth for an infinitesimally short time, compared to eternity, before we whither, like leaves, and are blown away.  Eternity is forever.  Never ending.  Our true home.

This is the future love that Advent points us to.  When this sinks in, it’s very difficult, perhaps impossible, not to experience the hope, peace and joy associated with the first three Sundays of Advent. Give to God the thanks, praise and love He deserves many times over.



May we all experience the hope, peace and joy of this Advent season as a result of God’s agape love, and may we return our praise, thanks and love to God for the unmerited favor we have received and will receive from Him.

    1. OK.

      Absolutely I wish Nanzi would send the impeachment articles to Senate. however, Senate ought to move forward first of year.

      That said, above post inferes Durham investigations and follow-on indictments would be hampered by Nanzi actions OR lack of action. I DISAGREE. I think Durham is wholly separate from anything Nanzi may or may not do. AND, I don’t expect a report an IG like report from Durham, since Durham is a prosecutor investigating.

      1. POTUS wants the Senate Hearings BEFORE the indictments come. He wants the people to hear what they have done before arrests are made.

        Senate trial puts hold on Senate proceedings. They can’t do anything else.

        Don’t know if it’s true, but there’s a rumor going round that one of the reasons Nanzi is holding the Articles is that she DOES NOT have anyone in the House willing to prosecute ! If that IS true, it makes a lot of sense. WHO wants to go down in history as prosecuting a sham of an inpeachment ?

    1. Soros is up to some VERY INTERESTING strategic “anti-war” moves right now, IMO to try to control the antiwar part of the Trump base. VERY CRAFTY. At first I thought maybe Soros is coming around to Trump’s thinking, but no – his real purpose simply MUST BE to control part of the Trump base and then pull them away as OTHER Soros forces try to drag or force Trump in the opposite direction, into war (presumably China and others would be heavily involved).

      BEWARE SOROS at all times – he has NO CONSCIENCE. He is not going to suddenly get one now, IMO.

        There is NOTHING in the Constitution that says the Senate has to wait upon the pleasure of the House once they pass the articles.

        Mitch could simply schedule the trial and leave Nancy to scramble to get her ‘managers’ in place. She can squeal like the rat she is but has no real leg to stand on if Mitch gives her a couple of weeks and if she does not comply holds a vote to dismiss.

          What a sham D-Rats and Nanzi have made out of our great Constitution and Country.

          Looking forward to their public downfall, prosecution and hopefully being found guilty.

          I can’t guess why so many heavy hitters would be performing in an apparent stoopid manner.
          – Muh Russia collusion for a couple years.
          – Obstruction for a few months.
          – Ukraine fiasco.
          – Ending with a LIMP impeachment of non crimes. Zero evidence. AND, at least temporarily NOT sending articles of impeachment to Senate.

          Hmmmm, me guessing…Nanzi boy, kerry step son, Bite me son, Bite me relatives (Iraq), Podesta and many others wrapped up in US Aid being hijacked…laundered to above schmucks.

          Even as senile as Nanzi is appearing to be, she has to know, impeachment has been a farce AND withholding articles of impeachment serves NO ONE well.

          timing the articles with FISA hearings simply child’s play for republicans to work around.

  7. The Enormity of the Implications of #QAnon. #GreatAwakening #NEONREVOLT

    December 22, 2019
    from Neon Revolt

    https://www.sgtreport.com/2019/12/the-enormity-of-the-implications-of-qanon-greatawakening-neonrevolt/

    It’s been difficult for me to write about #QAnon for some time now.

    When I started this site, I never expected it to dovetail with the #QMovement quite like it has. And who could have possibly predicting such at thing? I was just an angry /pol/lack exiled from Facebook, looking to assert my presence online in a censorship-free environment. I was frustrated with the deplatforming that was going on, and was determined to start publishing my content in an arena where I had total control over what I posted – even if that meant I had to build the platform to make it happen myself. I covered all manner of Anon-related topics; not just Q. I started to cover Q because it, like so many other conversations, were happening in the world Anons occupied. I had no idea this Q thing was going to grow like it has, nor did I fully realize the vast implications Q would have on the world at the time when I first built this site. Truly, it was a confluence of being in the right place, at the right time.

    I was simply pursuing what interested me, personally, and pouring that out to the world, in the best way I knew how. And in a weird way, I suppose I was searching for some kind of hope for the future. Anyone who read my book knows that, frankly, I didn’t have much at the time. I, like so many others, was swept up in the cultural drama – looking for a solution, a way out. And the more I began to dive into what Q was saying, I realized that Q offered that, in some sense – or at least, in a greater degree than anything else. In my mind, if the world was going to come crumbling down all around us, I at least owed it to myself and everyone else to give what Q was saying a shot. Nothing to lose, right? Things at the end of the Obama era had gotten so bad, I figured either we all die in the Great Boogaloo, or we can give Q a shot. If this whole Q-thing works, all the better. And if it doesn’t, well… at least we gave it the old college try. Or so spirals the logic.

    But – I almost hate to admit this, and undoubtedly this will be used by naysayers against me – I’m not sure I’m really interested in Q any more.

            Thank you! I see an immature game player who is smart but whines at any opportunity. He has fawning fans who hang on his every word. Sometimes I get insight from his Gab site, but I will not be getting his book. His articles are way too wordy, for one thing.

            IMO, it is appalling that, a few months after he writes a book about Q, he decides he will be done with Q if there are no indictments by the end of this year. And every now and then, he complains about the character of Q’s posts (too repetitive, no new info, rah-rah but no substance). He doesn’t seem to realize that we need to hear from Q even if he can’t impart anything new at the moment.

            I also disagree with his conclusions in thet article (what I saw of them; I skimmed it). Q provides disinfo as well as info, and from what I see, Q wants us to focus on the political side of things right now.

    1. I have two old Shetlands in a paddock just outside my door. Since they have lost their grinding teeth, they have to be fed ‘ mush’ three times a day.

      At first we TRIED dumping the mush in a large bowl. The smaller pony would reach under the neck of the larger and quickly snatch the bowl away. Unfortunately they were a bit too aggressive and knocked Hubby down. Now I have them trained. Open the gate and Big Guy wanders out to get his bit of grain. Meanwhile I take the smaller one’s grain into the pasture and feed him to the side of the gate. Back out the open gate for the large bucket of soaked hay pellets (mush) and dump it in the large bowl WITHOUT a couple of pony noses in the way. By this time Big Guy has finished and wanders back in and heads for the bowl of mush.

      Now, if Hubby feeds he is no longer in danger of Big Guy, who LOVES to rub his head on you, knocking him over. Big Guy is a real character. I gave up wearing belts because he was always unbuckling my belt. I swear that pony has a sense of humor.

      The minis, like the guy above, are in the Shetland stud book BTW. Shetlands are VERY smart, strong and calm ponies. My favorite of the pony breeds. I have nine.

      This looks like Big Guy when losing his winter coat:
