Thread: belated Saturday evening Bible thread
One verse has been on my mind a lot lately. Ps 46:10 ‘Our God says, "Calm down, and learn that I am God! All nations on earth will honor me.”’
Why would God tell me to calm down? Because he knows me.
He knows that I get agitated when I see evil appearing to win. These are trying times. From a sense-knowledge viewpoint, a lot of bad things are happening, and our lives hang in the balance. But God says, “Calm down, Paul. The world will honor me.”
This message is sprinkled throughout the Bible.

“And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

“I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
“Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him.” Psalm 37:7

“Calm down! Don’t be afraid.” the LORD replied. “You’re not going to die!” Judges 6:23

“The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14

I’ll let you in on a little secret.
I don’t read the Bible. I search it. “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Act 17:11
If I’m feeling anxious, I search for verses about anxiety. If I want to calm myself down, I search for verses on being calm. And when I read those verses, I think of them as God talking to me directly. I wasn’t alive when David wrote the Psalms. But God knew I would read them.
He spoke to me just as he spoke to you, and to every person who has the ears to hear. When I say I don’t read the Bible, what I mean is, I don’t sit down and read chapter after chapter after chapter. I read it looking for answers to questions that I have.
And I have a lot of questions. And God has answers for every one of them. There’s sixteen days before the election. Now is the time (at least for me) to take a deep breath and become calm. Be still and know that God has got this. He’s in charge.
The peace that I feel now is complete. It’s all encompassing. I’m not worried about anything right now. Because I know God and I trust Him.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thess 5:16-18

Thread: @drawanstrike wrote a thread expressing disbelief that Hunter Biden would drop off a laptop and then forget it.…
I read it, but frankly I don’t buy his argument. His argument is that if HE did that, there’s no way he would forget about his laptop because everything on it is important to him. I get that. I would be the same way.
I panic when my laptop seems to screw up, because I think about all the work I’m going to have to do to recover everything and how I’m going to have to switch to my home computer in another room until the laptop is fixed. It’s a royal PITA and no one wants that.

Thread: Think about this for a second. We’re just now finding out that Hunter Biden has traded on his father’s influence since finishing college and his father’s donors have constantly found cushy jobs for him in return for beneficial legislation.…
Now ask yourself this question. Why are we finding this out now? Is it believable that no one knew this until now? This has to be an open secret in DC. Yet NOT ONE politician has called Biden on it. Not ONE Democrat. Not ONE Republican. The FBI has NEVER investigated it.
The DoJ has NEVER investigated it. When you think about THAT, you begin to realize how endemic the problem in DC is. There’s a reason that call it the swamp. Everyone in DC HAD to know what Biden was up to. Yet they said nothing. They did nothing.

Thread: Something funny is going on with the Flynn case. For the past two days I have received alerts of amicus briefs being filed, yet when I go to the court website to read them, they are not there. Today, again, I got another notification.
And, again, nothing is on the court website. However, this time there is one document accessible on the Courtlistener website. And it’s a brief from Bijan Rafiekian’s partner, Kamil Ekim Alptekim.…
To understand this, you have to know about the case United States v. Rafiekian. This was a FARA case against Flynn’s partners in FIG (Flynn Intell Group) that was brought by the SCO and tried in the EDVA (Eastern District Virginia) federal court.
