THE TRUTH ABOUT THE UNaffordable CARE ACT

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.

What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business,and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred,or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

20 Obama Quotes About Islam Contrasted With 20 Obama Quotes About Christianity

Taking Back America

From The Truth
By Michael Snyder, on September 27th, 2013
 
Obama messiah
 
You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to…

The Blood of Saints and Our Blood Avenger

Blood facts

Human blood is red due to the iron content

Crabs have blue blood because their blood contains copper instead of iron

Leeches have green blood because their blood contains chlorocruorin

Blood makes up about 7% of your body weight

The average human body contains about 10 pints of blood

Blood has a very prominent place within the three religions born in the Middle East. The Jews were instructed to offer animal sacrifices to God in the Old Testament. Every year on the Day of Atonement the priest would enter the temple and sprinkle blood from the sacrifice on the altar. In the same way, Christians understand that the blood of Jesus has been shed for their salvation. The veil of the temple was torn when Jesus died; we now have direct access to the throne of God through the blood of Jesus. In Islam, the “religion of peace” has spilled the blood of Christians and Jews since the rise of Mohammed. But there is so much more in the Bible about blood that we should know about.

The first mention of blood in the Bible is in Genesis chapter 4. After Cain killed Abel, God asked Cain where his brother was. God told Cain “the voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground.” (Gen. 4:10) This idea of our blood crying out to the Creator is carried out to the last book in the Bible.

“When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” (Rev. 6: 9-10)

The Law of the Old Testament instructed Jews not to eat flesh with the blood still in it.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.’ (Lev 17:11)

Even the land of Israel itself was affected by blood. God gave the Jews some very important instructions regarding the land He was about to bring them into. God told the Jews not to spill innocent blood in the land.

“So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.”(Number 35:33)

“So innocent blood will not be shed in the midst of your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, and bloodguiltiness be on you.” (Deut. 19:10)

The Law of the Old Testament outlined some very important guidelines in regards to blood. The first instructions had to do with spilling of innocent blood. “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.” (Genesis 9:6)

Numbers chapter 35 provides guidelines for the avenger of blood. “The blood avenger himself shall put the murderer to death; he shall put him to death when he meets him.”

The Law provided that the blood avenger was not just entitled to pursue the murderer and take his life, he was obligated to do it. It was the only way the land could be cleansed.

God Himself takes on the roll of blood avenger throughout the Bible. In fact, the burden of the blood avenger has been shifted from man to God Himself, the ultimate blood avenger.

“You shall strike the house of Ahab your master, that I may avenge the blood of My servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the Lord, at the hand of Jezebel.” (2 Kings 9:7)

“Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.” (Rom. 12:19)

One day soon Jesus, our blood avenger, will return to the earth. He will come and avenge those who have had their blood spilled by the false religion of Islam. This great mother of all harlots has been responsible for taking peace from the earth and poisoning the land.

“…BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE AMOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH…And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. (Rev:17:5-6)

Isaiah 63 highlights the return of the Holy One of Israel, Jesus. He is coming from Edom, which is the modern area of Jordan and Saudi Arabia. He is majestic in His appearance, and His robe is drenched in blood. Verse 3 says “their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments.”

Have you ever noticed the judgments listed in the book of Revelation? Many of the judgments deal with blood. The seas are turned to blood, the rivers are turned to blood, hail stones and fire is mixed with blood. There is a reason for this. Our blood avenger is exacting His revenge.

“Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying, “Righteous are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged these things; for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it.” And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” (Rev. 16: 4-7)

Joel 3 gives a very detailed account of Jesus return and why He is exacting judgment.

“Egypt will become a waste,
And Edom will become a desolate wilderness,
Because of the violence done to the sons of Judah,
In whose land they have shed innocent blood.
But Judah will be inhabited forever
And Jerusalem for all generations.
And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged,
For the Lord dwells in Zion.” (Joel 3:19-20)

Revelation 19 describes the return is Christ in all His glory. Again we are reminded what He accomplished.

“because His judgments are true and righteous; for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the earth with her immorality, and He has avenged the blood of His bond-servants on her.”
(Rev 19:2)

The reason Jesus is coming back in wrath is because of the innocent blood that is being spilled by this harlot, or false religion, Islam. He is coming to avenge His people who have remained faithful to the end. He is going to give them their just reward. Come Lord Jesus, Come!

Are you a ‘believer in exile’ — I invite you to try God, again

By Anne Graham Lotz
Published September 08, 2013

Have you tried God?

Did you used to go to church?

Why aren’t you going to church now?

Without implying you are a statistic, research indicates that 83% of all American adults consider themselves to be Christian, but the majority of them are unchurched.

Why?

The primary reason people avoid church, pollsters say, even though they consider themselves Christian, is because of wounds they have received within the family of faith.

Has that been your experience? Is that why you are hanging out on the periphery of God’s people?

I understand. I, too, have been driven from church fellowship by wounds that were inflicted on me by other church members.

The primary reason people avoid church, pollsters say, even though they consider themselves Christian, is because of wounds they have received within the family of faith.

I have found myself living as a “believer in exile,” not running from God, but tired of putting up with those who call themselves by His name, yet behave in an ungodly manner.

Jesus understands, too. It never ceases to amaze me that the most vicious lies, the most violent attacks, the ultimate rejection of Jesus, came not from the Romans or the Greeks or the pagans or the secularists, but from Israelites who were considered, by themselves and others, the children of God. God’s people.

One primary reason I have not forsaken my own Christian faith is that I know Jesus “gets it.” He was literally wounded…crucified…by very religious people who considered themselves God’s representatives on earth, but were nothing of the sort. They were wicked, sinful pretenders.

So I refuse to let religious phonies destroy my heart for the One who loves me, who understands and feels my pain, and who draws close to me when I am wounded. I refuse to be robbed of life’s greatest treasure—a personal, permanent, passionate relationship with God through faith in Jesus, and the healing of wounds that He offers.

As painful and devastating as wounds inflicted by God’s people can be, they have made me more determined to authentically live out what I believe.

I am deeply motivated to know God. I want to know Him as He truly is, not through the distorted reflection of those who call themselves by His name. And I want to make Him known to others as accurately, winsomely, clearly, and compellingly as I can.

And God is knowable. He has declared that He is light. (1 John 1:5) Since one of the primary characteristics of light is that it makes itself visible, God is saying He has made Himself visible.

He can be clearly seen in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. And He can be seen in the pages of the unique revelation of Himself, which we call the Bible.

If your focus in on the people of God, the Light can seem dim or even dark. So don’t look at them. Look at Him.

Try God…again.
