Good Times, Bad Times? God Still Gets Glory!

Greeting to The Countdown to see what’s new on the menu:

How about some ‘chips’?…

And ‘a drink’…please excuse the sarcasm:

Judicially Authorized Rape: The Newest Weapon in the Prohibitionist Arsenal

Under Utah state law, “object rape” consists of the involuntary “penetration, however slight, of the genital or anal opening of another person who is 14 years of age or older, by any foreign object, substance, instrument, or device….” This act constitutes a form of aggravated sexual assault for which the penalty is a prison term of no less than ten years, followed by lifetime enrollment in the sex offender registry.
As 22-year-old Utah resident Stephan Cook discovered, the crime of object rape – like any other offense against person or property—can be transmuted into a policy option when it’s committed pursuant to a government decree.
While attending Snow College in Ephraim, Utah, four years ago, Cook and a friend were smoking cigarettes near a parked car when they were accosted by several police officers. Following the standard script, the officers – who, let us not forget, were trained to lie – claimed to smell marijuana and demanded to search the car.
Cook and his friend emptied their pockets and consented to a pat-down search. They permitted the officers to search the interior of the car several times with a drug-sniffing dog. Eventually a glass pipe was found in the trunk. Rather than arresting Cook, who was a passenger in the car, the officers ordered him to drive to a nearby police station, supposedly to save his friend the expense of an impound fee.
There was neither probable cause nor reasonable suspicion to justify the search the car. By ordering Cook to drive to the station, the police made it clear that they did not believe that he was under the influence of marijuana.
Furthermore, Cook didn’t own the car, a fact that severs the thinnest thread connecting him to the glass pipe found in the trunk.
Yet the officers persisted in their effort to manufacture an offense. Cook was detained and informed that he would have to undergo a drug test. When the police demanded that he sign a waiver of his rights, Cook – whose parents are police officers — repeatedly and explicitly demanded access to an attorney.
“I asked for an attorney because I didn’t know if this was right,” Cook recalled in a television interview.  “Once I did that, they said ‘We’re getting a search warrant so we’re going to have your urine by the end of the night.’” A “bodily fluids warrant” was issued “authorizing” the cops to obtain a urine sample. It did not, however, specify that the sample could be taken by force. Lindsay Jarvis, Cook’s attorney, informed Pro Libertate that the warrant was issued by a judicial “commissioner,” rather than a judge.
Since the police considered Cook sufficiently sober to drive, they clearly weren’t facing exigent circumstances. Even if we make the unwarranted assumption that the police were entitled to take a urine sample, they had the luxury of collecting one at leisure – but this wouldn’t have satisfied whatever prurient interest they had in inflicting unnecessary pain on a teenage male.
 Cook’s abductors took him to the Sanpete Valley Hospital, where Nurse Ratched told them “to hold my shoulders and she undoes my pants and wipes me down with iodine, catheterized me and took my urine,” the victim recalls.
Ms. Jarvis points out that the purpose of this procedure was clearly punitive, not investigative: “Rather than employ a simple blood test, they’re forcibly catheterizing these people.”
This satisfies another element of the statutory definition of object rape: The act was committed with the “intent to cause substantial emotional or bodily pain to the victim.”
Finally there’s this for ‘dessert’ (or desert more like):

Children Shall Rise Up Against Their Parents, And the Father Their Child

And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. (Mat 10:21-22)
This is the true story of a Christian woman named Laura who lives in Michigan. Her YouTube channel was called “Grace Explosion.” On May 29, 2012 around 5:15 pm the police came and picked up Laura and involuntarily took her to a mental hospital in the town where she lives. Laura’s family had her involuntarily committed by trumping up an outlandish tale that she had made a suicide pact with her friend Sean. Laura and Sean were in the final stage of planning a road trip where they were gong to be visiting various cities and doing spiritual warfare and end up in Philadelphia on July 4th. Laura thought that possibly a great spiritual event was about to happen.
I came to know about this through a friend who sent me a video of Sean having a phone conversation with Laura while she is being held against her will at the mental hospital. I did not understand what was going on so I just ignored it. But the Holy Spirit kept bringing it to my mind so I felt led to investigate further. I was finally led to have a phone conversation with Sean where I was able to get the facts that he had. The more I looked into this; I was just in disbelief and completely shocked by what was happening to Laura. She told Sean in one of their phone calls that the Doctor treating her said she cannot be released from the hospital until she takes a drug called Risperidone and renounces Jesus Christ!
Evidently the “treatment” her Doctor wants to administer to her is called DSM-IV Religious and Spiritual Problems. More about this wicked treatment can be found at this link: http://www.spiritualcompetency.com/dsm4/dsmrsproblem.pdf
Evidently this treatment is widely used by the mental health community to treat people who they deem to have “Spiritual Problems.” A list of what they consider to be “problems” is on the Spiritual Competency website and includes; Mystical Experience, Near Death Experience, Visionary Experience and Alien Encounter Experiences (we know what that really is!)  But in the case of Laura, her beliefs and claims were obviously just too extreme for her family to cope with. So I guess they figured they could just have her “Spiritual Problem” illuminated by having her involuntarily committed and forced to take drugs![MORE FOUND HERE]
Yeah trying to think of happy thoughts through dark times helps, but understand if what the scriptures of God’s Word are true, and we are assured that they are, we haven’t seen anything yet! However, it’s good for everyone to see that the things that have been prophesied will come to pass…some things just take more time than others and even then they can sometimes be averted through repentance…even if a short time.
Oh, and we have this to ‘take with you’…ok, but really, lastly, look at this when y’all get a sec:

Is That Really Just a Fly? Swarms of Cyborg Insect Drones Are The Future of Military Surveillance

By HSL on Jun 21, 2012

By DailyMail.co.uk

The kinds of drones making the headlines daily are the heavily armed CIA and U.S. Army vehicles which routinely strike targets in Pakistan – killing terrorists and innocents alike.
But the real high-tech story of surveillance drones is going on at a much smaller level, as tiny remote controlled vehicles based on insects are already likely being deployed.
Over recent years a range of miniature drones, or micro air vehicles (MAVs), based on the same physics used by flying insects, have been presented to the public.

The fear kicked off in 2007 when reports of bizarre flying objects hovering above anti-war protests sparked accusations that the U.S. government was accused of secretly developing robotic insect spies. [MORE ARTICLE FOUND HERE]

Based on all these and more ‘evidences of end times’ we are presenting here at The Countdown and from several of those on our blogroll, the beginning of ‘bad times’ and end of ‘good times’ has begun. But in a bittersweet way, this also means those that follow Jesus, should be preparing themselves and everyone they meet or know, for the second ‘flyby return’ of Yehoshua/Jesus. It’s gonna happen and this world will come ‘unglued’ ! W e don’t think anyone would really want to be here then, based on how The Bible explains things…

Jesus will return to the earth for the last time, to start His 1000 year reign, for good, 3.5 to 7  years (depending on where we are exactly on ‘the timeline’) or so from this event. We pray we are worthy to go, but only God, our faith in confession and deeds (forsaking sin, turning from evil, etc.) will decide, when it’s ‘all said and done’.

treburn interjected,”Better ta’ try to live righteously now, than find out ya’ could ‘ave, I always say…

But just remember, God is still in control no matter what happens and sometimes bad times happen to make good times even better… even if they get worse first!
Many bad times happen to some so that they, and only they, can help ‘the captives’, or heal the sick, cast out devils – or even raise the dead, God willing!
Either way, God still gets glory out of all situations someway, as He deserves, being the Highest Being and all…don’t expect to understand and sometimes we never will, even to our deaths, God forbid…
But in ALL we do, it should be for Yahweh the Father and Jesus His Son, alone, because of  what He and His Son did for us!
To provide, protect, and parent us into ‘mo betta’ surroundings! Much better than any government can do now, that’s for sure!
So…with all the economic turmoil we see here in the natural, could we then understand that the highest currency or monetary system of the spirit world, is perhaps Glory to God?!
Who is getting the glory (or is it blame?) here on earth, in the ‘natural realm’, and maybe we’ll start to see our ‘answer’. Maybe we are blaming (and not giving glory to) God for something WE did?!
We always thank God – for running, somewhat clean water to a hot shower in a tub/stall with decent privacy…ahem…to the food we have to eat and share for the day, to a safe place to sleep for the night. And we try to help any way we can to those who don’t. But please don’t start some ‘socialistic marxist state’ to do ‘your God given duty to society’! That just screws everything up!!
Finally treburn couldn’t hold it in any longer and interrupted, “Lame ‘antichrist attempt’  at seizing power over unaware masses…I HATE that!”
Do we give God the Glory or do we complain He “…isn’t working hard enough for me!”?
Or do we ask, “Why isn’t it working for me”? I do all the right things, for all the right reasons… or do I…?
Attitude adjustment needed we think…Remember He knows ALL!  We know nothing , or a teeny, weeny bit, if any…
We certainly can’t ‘put one over’ on The Allmighty!
His Word and the Holy Spirit work together on this and usually ‘thins things out’ enough to understand, we think…
Yes, lucifer (and followers) wanted, and are still trying to ‘be’ God, more than anything, before he became a satan, or the satan, however you prefer, but we prefer to not capitalize his name… and tried to overthrow God’s creation in the beginning.
Perhaps this is why the economy of this world is tanking…maybe we need to be praying and then thanking God for the billions of people who have an opportunity to live forever at ‘The Creator of  All’s pad?! Man that’s really groovy! It’s a shame that many will turn down that invitation…
Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us – especially if we turn to, live in, through and for Him!
Sorry for no scripture verses, but there are a lot of them. Perhaps it’s time to go searching…got time?
Current events in context of Biblical prophecy helped shape some of  these past postings, seen ‘above’ and earlier. It is also interesting that we have discovered that whatever happens in the spirit, happens in the natural and vise-versa. They may be different but are related somehow…
‘Governments’ try to take take away guns in the natural like they try to take away using the name of Jesus – our spiritual ‘guns’, the blood of the Lord Jesus is our ‘ammo’. Faith, truth, righteousness, peace, salvation, the Spirit of God and the sharing of this, the good news, is our armor… held together with love.
And… all glory goes to God, even if this financial system tanks and the mark is practically shoved into your body without your consent… Good News – there are ways to begin, and continue, life anew and fresh without it. Let readers understand.
“Love the Lord God Jehovah Yahweh, The Creator of All, The Heavenly Father with all your heart, soul and mind and no other gods, and your neighbor as yourself!”
Anything you want to add in closing remarks treburn?
“Uhh, ok, how ’bout…This ‘li’l ‘ helpin’ of ‘dessert’ can get us through life, truly, it’s very rich to digest but essential to our ‘dietary needs’…”
Our thoughts too 😉 … ’till the next time, Lord willing, and…
CHeers!
