FCC votes 3-2 to abolish #NetNeutrality-I Posted Many Times About This

It happened and it is NOT good. It will kill a lot of what I do online. 90% of what I do is online, so little guys and censuring is game on.

I said soon the internet will change as we know it, today it did, next the internet kill switch will be hit, No internet. This, I have wrote on, spoken on many, many times.
My little sites are dead and Christians will be censured, watch.

The death of the 100% free true internet is on today. I will have to see where this will effect what I do. My free bible college has many videos on you tube and the live mail I use, all of it can be greatly effected. It could also kill a lot of what I do online.
Internet research and certain sites will be throttled. I have already been seeing this a while now. 

This site has been bottle necked(throttled) almost a year, meaning a 80% reduction in visits. 

Pray for this ministry and others online that we have time to do what we are called to do. 

PS, by the way Trump is all for this. Hmmm. The white house spokes person said the white-house supports this but if they support it.



A number of tragic emails are below:

Sometime during 2003 I received an email from a Nigerian
Pastor, asking for prayer. He was at a loss as to what to
tell his flock who were "exhorted" (that should be extorted)
by a travelling American evangelist to give money to God
(to him of course) and that God would return the amount
100 fold. Of course all the flock were in that poor and needy
bracket and they gave believing that God would meet their
financial needs. Sick!

So the Evangelist departs with all the money and the poor
Pastor is left to explain to God's people why God has not
honoured their giving.  They gave their food money and rent
money believing God would replace it - the result was
hungry, homeless people, more misery created by man in
God's name. My only advice was never never never never
allow these guys anywhere near your people and to teach
that our giving should not be to create a debt with God.
-Jeff Leigh.

I have a relative who was in dire financial need to help pay
for a utility bill that was going to be shut off. She contacted
TBN founders seeking for a small donation to help pay her
utility bill, they told her that they do not help in this way.
They would pray that she can get the financial help she
needs She had sent in hundreds of dollars over the years
to support this TBN Station, but when it was time for her to
get help which was less than $100.00 she needed, after
this she has not sent anymore money to fund them.

She had sent hundreds of dollars to these preachers on
TBN who preach 'If you send this amount of money to them,
depending on the amount of money they sent they would
be blessed some 30, 60 or 100 fold. She sent money
because she wanted to be blessed with money in return
not to submit to the Lord in the spirit of love, and humility.
She just wanted to get money back. And this is happening
in the lives of so many saints of God.

-Sister Cotia.

I want to say in response to this that my husband and I fell
for this message...hook, line and sinker.  We are now in
such a financial mess only God can rescue us!  We once
gave $1000.00 for a TV minister's airplane that we really
needed for our own bills.  We were told by him how
anointed he was and that we were guranteed the help we
need if we help buy his airplane for ministry.  Well, needless
to say no help came.  We have had more financial problems
in the past four years because of our blindness... our
willingness to accept this as the truth.  God woke us up a
year ago after falling on our faces and repenting.  We are
still in a huge struggle and hope to not go bankrupt. We
have credit card debt that is insurmountable.

We are told by these men if it isn't working we are the ones
at fault...we aren't giving enough...or we have sin in our lives....
"our cloud is not full enough" so we need to give more so
that "once it is filled up it will rain".

The Lord has kept us from drowning and like I said before
our only hope is in Him. God help us and save us from this
mess we ourselves have created.


There are a couple more 'gimmicks' that TV preachers are
using currently to get money out of their audiences. Usually
you will see one start using a technique and then soon
enough many others are getting on the 'bandwagon'.

When the Christian TV stations have 'telethons'' they will
have guest preachers come on to help stir up the people to
give. One such man of long Christian standing spoke of how
much he had given God the previous year. On TV he went
on to say how he was glad that he gave that much since
his wife had gotten cancer that year and they had already
'sown' into the Kingdom of God (talking about money).
Evidently God healed his wife 'because they had given
MONEY'....He was VERY clear what he meant...If you have
a physical need such as healing, give money and God will
heal you....SICK! Where does Jesus say this? He gave
command to the disciples: FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED,

The Great Christmas Auction

I was reading E-Sword and the devotions as always. I have in the past posted some of these, this one will blow your mind.
It was a two day two part devotion, I read day one, man I wanted to read ahead , but I did not, when I read the part two I just said wow, very good message. Today is Feast of lights, Christmas a Pagan holiday, but I post it today and say happy feast of lights, happy holidays to all.

The devotion is Rylisms

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32)

Years ago there was a very wealthy man who, with his devoted young son, shared a passion for art collecting. Together they traveled around the world, adding only the finest art treasures to their collection. Priceless works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and many others adorned the walls of the family estate.

The widowed elder man watched with satisfaction, as his only child became an experienced art collector. The son’s trained eye and sharp business mind caused his father to beam with pride as they dealt with art collectors around the world.

As winter approached, war engulfed the nation, and the young man left to serve his country. After only a few short weeks, his father received a telegram. His beloved son was missing in action. The art collector anxiously awaited more news, fearing he would never see his son again. Within days, his fears were confirmed. The young man had died while rushing a fellow soldier to a medic.
and lonely, the old man faced the upcoming Christmas holidays with anguish and sadness. The joy of the season, a season that he and his son had so looked forward to, would visit his house no longer.

On Christmas morning, a knock on the door awakened the depressed old man. As he walked to the door, the masterpieces of art on the walls only reminded him that his son was not coming home. He opened the door, and a soldier greeted him with a large package in his hand.

“I was a friend of your son,” the soldier said. “I was the one he was rescuing when he died. May I come in for a few moments? I have something to show you.” As the two began to talk, the solider told of how the man’s son had told everyone of his father’s love of fine art.

“I’m an artist,” said the soldier, “and I want to give you this.”

(continued tomorrow)

The Great Christmas Auction (Part 2 of 2)

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32)

As the old man unwrapped the package, the paper gave way to reveal a portrait of the man’s son, which the soldier had painted. Though the world would never consider it the work of a genius, the painting featured the young man’s face in striking detail.

Overcome with emotion, the man thanked the soldier, promising to hang the picture above the fireplace. A few hours later, after the soldier had departed, the old man set about his task. True to his word, the painting went above the fireplace, pushing aside thousands of dollars of paintings. And then the man sat in his chair and spent Christmas gazing at the gift he had been given.

The following spring, the old man became ill and passed away. The art world was in high anticipation! According to the will of the old man, all of the art would be auctioned on Christmas day, the day he had received his greatest gift.

The day soon arrived and art collectors from around the world gathered to bid on some of the world’s most spectacular paintings. Dreams would be fulfilled this day; greatness would be achieved as many would claim “I have the greatest collection.” The auction began with a painting that was not on any museum’s list. It was the painting of the man’s son.

The auctioneer asked for an opening bid. The room was silent. “Who will open the bidding with $100?” he asked. Minutes passed. No one spoke. From the back of the room came, “Who cares about that painting? It’s just a picture of his son. Let’s forget it and go on to the truly valuable items.”

More voices echoed in agreement.

“No, we have to sell this one first,” replied the auctioneer. “Now, who will take the son?”

Finally, a friend of the old man spoke. “Will you take fifty dollars for the painting? That’s all I have. I knew the boy, so I’d like to have it.

“I have a bid of fifty dollars,” called the auctioneer. “Will anyone go higher?”

After more silence, the auctioneer said, “Going once, going twice. Gone.”

The gavel fell. Cheers filled the room and someone exclaimed, “Now we can get on with it and we can bid on these great treasures!” The auctioneer looked at the audience and announced that the auction was over.

Stunned disbelief quieted the room. Someone spoke up and asked, “What do you mean it’s over? What about all of these paintings? There are millions of dollars of art here! We demand that you explain what’s going on!”

“It’s very simple,” the auctioneer replied. “According to the will of the father, whoever takes the son . . . gets it all.”

The Bible says, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom_8:32). Receive Jesus into your life, and you get everything that God has to give!

Take the Son, and get it all!

Weekly Visit
December 10, 2017

Good Evening,
Hello, I am Pastor Bob, associate pastor of Truth and Mercy Ministries. Of the three pastors-our founder Pastor Abaldo is at the Truth and Mercy Headquarters in Yermo California, Pastor Charles Novak is from the Chicago area, and I am from everywhere else-literally from sea to shining sea.

Over the past couple of weeks I believe the Lord has shown me to begin to check in and update things as I see them from all over the USA. I shall attempt to do a brief 5-7 minute video each week along with some printed text, and will entitle it “Weekly Visit” (the weekly video will likely contain a little more material than the text). This evening I am in Indianapolis-the weather is cool but relatively mild with some small patches of snow in the shady areas. Traffic has been light to moderate all day though I haven't been near any shopping areas.

Well let's jump right in there. There are a couple of things I would like to talk about this past week. The first and most significant thing is that I had a great (and long) Skype session with Pastor Abaldo at the beginning of the week. We were talking about our prayer life and hearing the still small voice of God. What brother Danny had to say was certainly not new to me, but rather served as a reminder about the way, or rather the steps we should take in prayer. It seems that often people will read Scripture and then pray. That is one way, and certainly God answers our prayers according to His will in any manner He would so choose. Another approach mentoined by my dear Brother is to pray, then be quiet and listen for His still small voice to begin to bring about an answer to prayer. The next step would be to open up the Word of God, as of course often God will speak to us through His Word.

Jer 29:11-13 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. (12) 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. (13) 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
These three verses from Jeremiah really speak to me, and I find myself reading them over and over again. God tells us that He will listen to us when we call upon Him, search and seek Him with out whole heart.

Psa 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
Psalm 23 is very familiar to many of us. It brings about a sense of quiet and well being free of distractions and worldly concerns.

1Pe 2:2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
As we look at a couple of verses in 1 and 2 Peter he speaks about the personal growth we receive from the study of God's word. In the above verse a few of the words are of course rather figureative in nature-but the point is easily understood. In the verse below out of 2 Peter, he speaks of growing in grace-this really excites me and hopefully all who are reading or listening to this.
2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

As mentioned above I would talk about the second cool thing of the week. I work full time for a large company which has an outstanding reputation across the entire country. So yes, there is such a thing as a large corporation in America which is not laden with scandals. Every year I attend the annual Christmas Banquet which was a somewhat elegant affair (at least by my standards-you know cloth napkins, white table cloth in which to artfully create interesting stain out of overboard food graced upon said linen, along with tons of extra utensils and stuff I didn't really need after all). There were some 800 persons in attendance this past Friday night-some whom I personally know and many whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting. At the banquet last year I was chosen to do the invocation before dinner was served and gave a little speech which was carefully laced with Scripture. The words that God gave me to speak last year had a profound effect upon the audience and there were many tears of both joy and sadness as our founder, Mr. Acklie had passed away just a few months prior to the 2016 banquet. I addressed this in my speech as the Lord directed-Mrs. Acklie, the widow was very touched and there was just love in her eyes, I can't hardly even describe this. The CEO who is the son in law of the late Mr. Acklie had very genuine kind words to say to me. I give God all the glory and want none of the fanfare for myself-just a sinner saved by grace! This year the food was blessed by one of the vice presidents of the corporation-and his words spoken were directed toward thanking in Jesus' name. God had not instructed me to do the invocation this year-BUT I know He has other cooler plans for me in 2018. So I go with that-I will speak of these later so that we can pray together as Brothers and Sisters in the Lord.

I look forward to "visiting" again next week. I have planned a pre-Christmas message. It will perhaps be quite different so stay tuned.

The Lord Bless you!
Pastor Bob (a.k.a. Dr. Grandpa)

The Very Rare and Most Beautiful Vase

Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luk_17:21)

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away there lived a very poor man in a shabby house in a run-down neighborhood on the wrong side of the tracks in a economically depressed town, in a state overrun with poverty and need. Things weren’t looking good.

One day as he was rummaging about the piles of items discarded from the local flea market, tossed aside because nobody wanted any of them, something caught his eye. It was a vase, and to his amazement, it was unbroken despite the obvious abuse it had suffered; unbroken, and unmarred.

In fact, it was beautiful, even more so when contrasted by all the trashy surroundings.

He took it home and placed it upon the mantle in his dingy living room, and then sat and simply stared at it. Day after day he would spend hours gazing upon the very rare and most beautiful vase.

One day, as he was intently focused upon the vase, he realized how cluttered his mantle was with other things, and how stained the wall was with the grime of poverty. So he cleared the junk off the mantle, and put a fresh coat of paint upon the wall. That simple decision caused the vase to stand out in even greater beauty, for now his entire wall took on the look of a beautiful painting, and he found such joy in gazing upon it all.

Then one day as he entered his living room he noticed how worn was the carpet, and how tattered were the furnishings. He pulled the carpet out and uncovered a beautiful hardwood floor; he cleaned and recovered the furnishings, transforming the look of the entire room. This is turn led him to slowly began renovating the rest of his home.

Once finished, he delighted in the comfort of his beautiful abode.

But then he noticed that the yard was overgrown with weeds, and filled with junk; the fence was broken down and the outside of his home looked weathered and wasted. So he set upon making the needed repairs and cleaning up the yard. Soon, his home became the talk of the neighborhood, for it brought such a sense of hope to all those around him.

Before long the other homeowners began making repairs upon their houses and yards, such that the entire neighborhood transformed and became the talk of the town.

Yet a little while longer and the town itself began to change; cleaning the trash off the streets, repairing broken windows and repainting faded homes; refurbishing businesses and rekindling dreams. At length, the town became the garden spot of the State.

Tourists came from far and wide to see the beauty of the transformed town. Upon seeing it, they each went home inspired to make changes in their own homes.

Meanwhile, the man sat happily in his living room and looked upon that rare and most beautiful vase, blessed that his life had been transformed by beauty.

Jesus said that kingdom of God was within us; that the royal, ruling power of God was at work transforming our lives from the inside out. This is that very rare and most beautiful vase, and the power of its influence is truly extraordinary! You can change your world — day by day.

Feed My Sheep Pt 4-Fighting for -And Living In Joy

Rom_14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Act_20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Gal_5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

1Jn_1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Beloved this message I write to you that your joy may be full, the same as 1Jn 1:4

I see, as many of you do, so many people that have no Joy at all. I speak of Christians.

A simple word, but I remind you with this message what you already know.
Joy unspeakable and full of Glory, that is our promise, but why do so many have no joy, or very little.

There are times and seasons when many , myself included, seem to have a lack of Joy.
It can be circumstances, family chaos, holidays spent alone, bad news, trial and tribulation, you name it.

Joy is a promise, but there are times we must fight for it, why? 'The devil comes to steal , kill, and destroy', that is your joy and peace he is after, and more.

To everything there is a season, people grieve over a lost one, this is normal, what is not normal is when we are not walking in joy because the battles of life are striping it from us, yes, it sometime takes spiritual warfare to keep in Joy.

Other times, we must simply claim what the bible says and walk in it.

Sometimes it is a simple attitude of gratitude we are missing, by gossip, murmuring, using vain, pro-fain words, when we should have our speech salted with heavenly salt.

Joy is in our heart and it should be in our mouths as well. I know many lonely people that feel no one loves them, guess what, Jesus loves you , you are his.

I read emails where people are walking in self-condemnation, condemnation is not of God, its of the flesh and devil. If you sinned, you repent, and get up fresh, forgiven, listen...only Jesus can offer this refreshing, nothing else in this world can, only Jesus.

Joy, simple, many need to read this simple word, Joy beloved, walk , fight for it, claim it, live it.

If your in a place where your joy is lacking, trust in the lord, love and worship the lord, read his word, help others, and know you are one of his saints.

Things come and things go, no matter the case, let us all keep in mind, JOY, it's a fruit of the spirit, it must be cultivated, and yes we all can cultivate joy, by the holy spirit and the very presence of Jesus Christ.

This is the simple word I was given to feed the lords sheep. JOY!!!

I end with a John Piper short on this very message. How to fight for joy, take a listen.
