WALNUT CANYON

100_5664100_5666

We made a visit to Walnut Canyon National Park just south of Flagstaff .

 

100_5702

The resident ranger was kind enough to give us background information on the cliff dwelling residents who lived here from around 1000 to 1400 A.D. 


100_5709

The view was breathtaking from the top as we looked down into the canyon.

100_5689100_5683

We could see the remnants of the homes of these ancient people.

100_5696100_5693

Some were still visible as homes.

100_5724

From inside the wall dugout homes you could see the walkways these ancient people used during their years of living in this area.  What a great experience.

RENDER UNTO CAESAR! PRAY THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST IS NEVER ALLOWED TO BE HIJACKED!

Matthew 22:17-22, “Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not?” But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.”

We are to give to the government what belongs to the government, as we should. The Church of Jesus does Not now, Never has, nor will it Ever belong to an earthly government. Pray that the Church of Jesus Christ will never be allowed to be Hijacked.

A point of interest; the reason, through the ages, Church business and property has been exempt from government taxes, is because the government of the Church is understood, as, coming under the Headship of Her Commander and Chief, that is, Her Lord Jesus the Christ. No earthly government has a higher authority. The Lord Jesus Christ, is the Lord of Lords, He is the King of Kings. His government is the Highest Government in the Universe. The True Church is His Church and falls directly under His government.

We must pray, as we must also be prepared to defend the Church from Tyranny, that She will stand firm, and never allow Herself to be Hijacked. Pray for the Freedom of the Church in America and around the world. Should we ever lose that freedom, a great price will be required to be paid! AMEN”

PRAY FOR THE PASTOR’S OF HOUSTON TO STAND STRONG!

IN CELEBRATION OF COLUMBUS DAY

ChristopherColumbus

1451- 1506

Did you know; contrary to legend, Columbus did not sail to prove the earth was round. But, of course, most educated Europeans and mariners already knew that.


Did you know; Columbus estimated the size of the Atlantic Ocean partially from reading his Bible. He had read in the Second Book of Esdras (in the Apocrypha) that God created the world in seven parts, six of them dry land and the seventh water. He thus calculated that the ocean separating Portugal from Cipangu (Japan) was one-seventh of the earth’s circumference, or about 2,400 miles. He figured that by sailing 100 miles per day, he could reach the Indies in 30 days.


Did you know; unlike many sailors then and now, Christopher Columbus never used profanity.


Did you know; during Columbus’s voyages, the ships’ crews observed religious rites. Every time they turned the half-hour glass (their primary means of keeping time), they cried: “Blessed be the hour of our Savior’s birth / blessed be the Virgin Mary who bore him / and blessed be John who baptized him.” They finished each day by singing vespers together (although reportedly they sang out of tune).


Did you know, because of Columbus’s voyage and the resulting Spanish evangelistic efforts, Latin America has a higher percentage of professing Christians than that of any other region in the world.


WHAT WILL YOU TELL YOUR KIDS AND GRAND-KIDS ABOUT CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS?

SOME NEWS THAT IS NEWS!! worth reading.

IF YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS SYSTEM WAS RIGGED AND YOU COULDN'T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT SOLVE THE PUZZLE. WOW!

Talk about  ALL IN THE FAMILY!

ABC News executive producer.... Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.   CBS President ...David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama's Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.   ABC News correspondent ...Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney.  ABC News and Univision reporter... Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama's Deputy Press Secretary.  ABC President ...Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama's Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood.  CNN President ...Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton's Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.   As Paul Harvey would say. “And now you know the rest of the story”.  Why it is no surprise the media is in Obama's pocket, and why they rarely ever criticize anything he does.  “GOOD DAY”!
