JOHN 15 VERSES 18-25 TELLS US A STORY HOW WE ARE GOING TO BE HATED JUST LIKE THE LORD! The World’s Hatred
18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My names sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, They hated Me without a cause.
Here Christ discourses concerning hatred, which is the character and genius of the devils kingdom, as love is of the kingdom of Christ. Observe here,
I. Who they are in whom this hatred is foundthe world, the children of this world, as distinguished from the children of God; those who are in the interests of the god of this world, whose image they bear, and whose power they are subject to; all those, whether Jews or Gentiles, who would not come into the church of Christ, which he audibly called, and visibly separates from this evil world. The calling of these the world intimates, 1. Their number; there were a world of people that opposed Christ and Christianity. Lord, how were they increased that troubled the Son of David! I fear, if we should put it to the vote between Christ and Satan, Satan would out-poll us quite. 2. Their confederacy and combination; these numerous hosts are embodied, and are as one, Ps. 83:5.With one mind they plot together;
 they form an alliance against you Jews and Gentiles, that could agree in nothing else, agreed to persecute Christs minister. 3. Their spirit and disposition; they are men of the world (Ps. 17:13, 14), By your hand save me from such people, Lord,
 from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
 may their children gorge themselves on it,
 and may there be leftovers for their little ones.
wholly devoted to this world and the things of it, and never thinking of another world. The people of God, though they are taught to hate the sins of sinners, yet not their persons, but to love and do good to all men. A malicious, spiteful, envious spirit, is not the spirit of Christ, but of the world.
II. Who are they against whom this hatred is levelled-against the disciples of Christ, against Christ himself, and against the Father.
1. The world hates the disciples of Christ: The world hateth you (John 15:19); 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
and he speaks of it as that which they must expect and count upon, John 15:18;18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
 as 1 John 3:13Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.
(1.) Observe how this comes in here. [1.] Christ had expressed the great kindness he had for them as friends; but, lest they should be puffed up with this, there was given them, as there was to Paul, a thorn in the flesh, that is, as it is explained there, reproaches and persecutions for Christs sake, 2 Cor. 12:7, 10And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan 2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to [a]buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.

What's Love? I love this account of love by Peter Aiello and hope you do to?

2:22PM EST 2/10/2021 PETER AIELLO

It depends on who you ask: but should it? Most of the time, the answer to the question comes in the form of some human variation of love even though we may be talking about God. At times, loving God is interpreted in the same way as one would be in love with another human being. If this is all that it is, the person without the capacity to experience this type of love is in bad shape in relation to God. When the word 'love' is used in Psalms 91:14, it is used in the sense of cleaving or clinging to God. This makes it doable even for those who have no experience of falling in love with anyone because cleaving can be viewed as a dependence on God.
Loving God is the greatest of the two great commandments (see Matthew 22:37-38). This is because when we cling to God in the way that He wants us to, we open ourselves up to His agape love in a special way. His love then gives us the capacity to love our neighbor in a manner that is not possible for those who do not love God. For this reason, the second great commandment needs to be preceded by the first: it cannot be a substitute for the first. His special agape love for us is a fruit of the Spirit; therefore, it flows into us when God's Spirit is within us (see Galatians 5:22-23); and is not otherwise available for human beings. Without His Spirit within us, it is not possible to experience it. The different aspects of this agape love from God are described in 1Corinthians 13. Without it, our outward displays of love don't do us any good: "And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity [agape love], it profiteth me nothing" (1Corinthians 13:3).

Biden to appoint a "Truth Czar"
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 05 February 2021

This is written by our cousin Gary Randell who his Mother and my mom were 1st cousins. I have followed and even worked to support his talk show out of Portland in the eastern part of our State in the 60's so appreciate his ministry. This is his latest article.

The New York Times pointed out this week that we have a "reality" crisis in America, quoting a number of "experts," and is calling on President Biden to form a group of intellectuals to help America rediscover "reality."

These steps, they say, "could prod more people to abandon the scourge of hoaxes and lies."
If this "prodding" sounds vaguely familiar, it is. George Orwell called this group the "Ministry of Truth" in his book "1984."
Be informed, not misled.
The Times begins with this: "Last month, millions of Americans watched as President Biden took the oath of office...and called for unity."
Continuing, the Times said: 
"But plenty of other Americans weren't paying attention to Mr. Biden's speech. They were too busy watching YouTube videos alleging that the inauguration was a prerecorded hoax that had been filmed on a Hollywood soundstage."
"Or," the Times continued, "they were melting down in QAon group chats...or maybe their TV's were tuned to OAN, where an anchor was floating the baseless theory that Mr. Biden wasn't actually elected by the people."
The Times notes that "70% of Republicans believe Mr. Trump legitimately won the election, and 40% of Americans---including plenty of Democrats---believe the baseless theory that COVID-19 was manufactured in a Chinese lab."
"In the past year alone," the Times says, "we have seen conspiracy theorists cause Covid-19 vaccine delays, sabotage a wildfire response, and engineer a false election fraud narrative."

The NYT says, "The experts agreed that before the Biden administration can tackle disinformation and extremism, it needs to understand the scope of the problem."
And the scope is extensive. In fact, the Times continues to cover a long list of  "untruths" that must be eradicated before the masses can be effectively "prodded" toward the truth. 
So, who are these experts?
William Braniff is a counter-terrorism expert and professor at the University of Maryland. He says we have to have a  "holistic understanding of what the spectrum of extremism looks like in the United States, and then allocate resources accordingly."
Is he suggesting that everyone is interviewed or studied to determine if their personal beliefs could possibly lead to some kind of disruption in the culture? And who would the interviewers be?
And what kinds of beliefs would qualify a citizen to, say, be "reprogrammed" or "reeducated" as some elites are already calling for in regard to conservatives.
