like an abominable branch...

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.

And yet here we are, thousands of years later, still obsessing over Lucifer. Even today, giving him his day in the sun. . .

Sounds pretty dire.

It's easier to control people's thoughts and actions if you can scare them first.

Amen J!

The Internet is great. It is also metaphorically a two way mirror with 99% of the users unaware of that fact. Strange times.

Since I have been hanging out on Johns comment board the last couple days, I thought I might share something worth reading:

From Fredoneverything:

I strongly recommend adding Fred to your regular rounds on the inner webs, this guy is bright and speaks a particular shade of truth that is quite uncommon. Enjoy.
