Dear KMAG: 20200524 Open Topic

For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every secret thing, whether good or evil.


This Superlative Sanctuary Sunday 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.

Keep to the topic – avoid “you” and “your”. 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 Guidelines for posting and discussion , outlined here. Let’s not give the Internet Censors a reason to shut down this intellectual haven that Wolf has created for us.


The Storm is upon us.
Please remember to Pray for our President.


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:

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

And,


On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . 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 or peace, 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.”


Judgment

We’re at a point now with the Trump Coup and WuFlu situations where proofs of the specific acts of the perpetrators involved are coming into the light . . . and the desire for justice and punishment of the guilty is growing ever stronger . . . and so, in some quarters, is the fear that justice will be denied, yet again.

Something said here, or a snippet there, will cast a pall over us and we will be enticed toward worry or anger that, yes indeed, the privileged, rich, connected guilty ones will once again do an end run around Lady Justice and escape with their money to continue with their lives of self-indulgence and lust for even more wealth and influence.

For us Christians, this situation should have us pause and reflect on what God’s Word has to say about situations such as this.

Duchess fairly well hit the nail on the head on 1 May when she posted Psalm 37, which is entitled “The Heritage of the Righteous and the Calamity of the Wicked” in the New King James version of the Bible.

The bottom line here is that God will ensure that the wicked are judged and will suffer calamity, while the righteous will inherit peace and eternal reward.

If you can take a little time, it’d be beneficial to read through Psalm 37 (see below), slowly, and with the events of these days in mind. There is much reassurance and comfort to be had in that Psalm for us today.

Many of us (me, too) tend to lose sight of the fact that God really does have this and all of our situations well in hand. If we believe that God is who He says He is (I do), that He will do what He says He will do (I do), and that His plan for mankind is both just and perfect (Yes) then we must believe God’s Word also when He says that –

“The Lord has made everything for its own purpose, even the wicked for the day of evil.”

“The Lord keeps all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.”

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”


These people that we see around us, unrepentant, wallowing in corruption, believing only in themselves, and perhaps their evil father . . . by their speech and actions, which of the following groups is it likely that they will join? After all, it’s their choice. They will reap what they sow.

The believing, blessed righteous.

The unbelieving, accursed wicked.


Rise up, O Judge of the earth;
    repay to the proud what they deserve!
O Lord, how long shall the wicked,
    how long shall the wicked exult?
They pour out their arrogant words;
    all the evildoers boast.
They crush Your people, O Lord,
    and afflict Your heritage.
They kill the widow and the sojourner,
    and murder the fatherless;
and they say, “The Lord does not see . . .”


Psalm 37

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.

For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct.
15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But the Lord upholds the righteous.

18 The Lord knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the Lord,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows and does not repay,
But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth,
But those cursed by Him shall be [c]cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
26 He is [e]ever merciful, and lends;
And his descendants are blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good;
And dwell forevermore.
28 For the Lord loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell in it forever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
And his tongue talks of justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watches the righteous,
And seeks to slay him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand,
Nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the Lord,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
For the future of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.


“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”

    1. I should add, that most of us have been in modified quarantine for over 6 weeks and therefore the chances of an ordinary citizen WHO DOES NOT DO FOREIGN TRAVEL having Covid-19 is about zip. That is what the flatten the curve crap was all about to begin with.

    1. Yeah, that article is 6 years old.

      But Dawson is off-base, imho. Sullivan doesn’t need to illegally appoint an Amicus, who wrote a WaPo article damning Flynn, to prove anything. The US Atty AG Barr assigned to review the Flynn case, and whose review led to the DoJ’s motion to dismiss it’s own case, has already done that.

      Which makes me wonder what Dawson is smoking.

          1. I’ll elaborate at some length.

            He assembled a bunch of things that look like newspaper clips (but are screenprints of Q). He laid them out in some overlapping manner. (How to determine how to overlap them? He doesn’t say.) He draws a pentagram (not a star of David) and inscribed pentagons on them. Placing the vertices HOW? He’s not showing his work.

            And the whole thing depends on the font you have enabled on your system when you display the Q droppings, anyhow.

  8. The CDC confirms remarkably low coronavirus death rate. Where is the media?

    “The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26% — almost exactly where Stanford researchers pegged it a month ago.

    “More importantly, as I mentioned before, the overall death rate is meaningless because the numbers are so lopsided. Given that at least half of the deaths were in nursing homes, a back-of-the-envelope estimate would show that the infection fatality rate for non-nursing home residents would only be 0.1% or 1 in 1,000. And that includes people of all ages and all health statuses outside of nursing homes. Since nearly all of the deaths are those with comorbidities.”

    1. “Also, remember, so much of the death is associated with the suicidal political decisions of certain states and countries to place COVID-19 patients in nursing homes. An astounding 62 percent of all COVID-19 deaths were in the six states confirmed to have done this, even though they only compose 18 percent of the national population.”
