So many, including people I know who are strong Bible Believers, are claiming the conjunction of planets happening soon, is the "Christmas Star", the "Bethlehem Star" seen at the time of Christ's birth.
Well, the Bible says something completely different.
The wise men came from the East, following the star, they travelled a long time, following a star.
They had to know of the larger planets because astrologers in those days knew the bright and visible ones, such as Jupiter and Saturn,
Read this: They followed the star BEFORE seeing Herod, they went back to follow the star AFTER meeting Herod, the time needed to keep seeing this star means that this is no conjunction of planets, it is a star, a literal star, a miracle, not a conjunction of planets.
That miracle star, STOPPED MOVING once it got over where the Christ child lay. A conjunction of planets would not stop, nor could it be followed, it would only be seen for 2 days, and then, seen as stars mixing themselves in the ancient world,
not as a single star to follow for days, even weeks, for the Wise Men came from the East, FOLLOWING the Star.
A conjunction of planets would move across the sky as the Earth rotated, it would never stop,
it will move across the sky due to the rotation of the Earth, yet in Matthew, the MIRACLE STAR STOPPED once it was over the Christ child.
The Bible says this, read it:
Mt 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Mt 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Mt 2:3 When Herod the king had heard [these things], he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
Mt 2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
Mt 2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
Mt 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, [in] the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
Mt 2:7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
Mt 2:8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child;
and when ye have found [him], bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
Mt 2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
Mt 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
and would know the difference between a new star and existing ones, even planets.
Knowing that Herod sent them to search for the child, knowing that people already saw it before the wise men went to Herod, and they followed the star to find the Messiah AFTER meeting Herod.

The Night They Gunned Down Santa Claus
by Chet Lynn

There's strange things done 'neath the Vietnamese sun
but the thing that locked my jaws
was the night 'neath the moon, the third platoon
gunned down Santa Claus.
It started off right just another night,
you had to spend in the dirt,
security was out, .360 about
with fifty percent alert.

We had 81s and naval guns
our tanks were track to track,
an ontos or so an arty FO
with barrages back to back.
I froze where I stood 'cause out of the wood
eight horses came charging along,
this may sound scary those mustangs were hairy,
"Oh no," I moaned," mounted Viet Cong."

Trump can still win, we need to be in prayer to save this nation for 4 more years, but we must remember the Bible tells us that evil men will get worse and worse until the time of the tribulation.
We must also accept that times of great tribulation are the last chance to turn to a God that loves us, Making us examine our lives and our need to turn to Jesus Christ, an act of Mercy on God's part,
for we are about to truly be judged for our sins by giving us the leader we deserve, one who will be a tyrant instead of a blessing...all because we didnt bow down and turn to Jesus the first time we knew.

Everyone take notice.
Regardless of who wins the election, Twitter and Facebook will have a purge of those who posted the most political and maybe the most Christian posts that exposed Islam, sin, homosexuality, ANTIFA, and exposed the marxist origins of BLM.
Most of us will be tossed out unceremoniously and with great fanfare on their part.
This may be the last day we see some of our online friends.
Pray for our nation.
Voting against communism and rioting is not the same as voting for the man you want, it is about trying to keep our nation safe from tyranny of the left, we face violence in the streets regardless of who wins, the choice is who leads us after the violence: Marxists?

handed out 2 sleeping bags and one blanket today. Bought the usual fruits and sweets for the people downtown and had the opportunity to witness to about 5 in detail.
it is disappointing that people are always gimme gimme and then to see one with sincere thanks. I know that witnessing is the Lord's calling, Matt 28 commands us, but I am so unworthy to do this.
But...well, maybe it's time for a testimony.
I cam from a home that was filled with pornography and my own sexual abuse from a sister. The constant idea that all sisters thought it was funny to run their hands over me while one thought it even better to do more and never stopped.

Obama's 400 Million to Iran:
Was it Iran's money from 1979 or was it something else?
Did we pay Iran back the money that was in Escrow?
Did we pay more than that over the years?
Reagan gave Iran their money back in 1981, not Obama…
Obama’s $400 million and Carter’s $7.9 billion…

Some COVID-19 stories are just awful.
This one I am printing is one of the worst.
This is a sad story of the depression that can haunt a man.
Marcel was sick and tired of the world, of Covid 19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions, of being a dumb Liberal and the rest of the disturbing stories
that occupy media headlines. One morning Marcel drove his car into his garage then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favourite radio station and started the car.
