Resurrection Day on the road to Damascus

Resurrection Day on the Road to Damascus

By Don Hank

On this Easter Sunday morning, even as our government prepares for war against the Damascus government, I could not help but remember that it was Paul who, in his early persona as Saul of Tarsus, was stopped short on his march to Damascus to persecute the early Christians. We are Saul on the road to Damascus and the Lord is Jesus. Nothing has changed. The story has been ongoing for 2 millennia.

The Damascus Road: Saul Converted (Acts 9)

Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”

Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.[a] It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”

Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one. Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.

The Satanic States of America (SSA), which, like Jerusalem in the story above, imagines itself to be a moral authority, is now headed like Saul to Damascus, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, to take out President Bashar al-Assad, the only man standing between the US-funded terrorists and the Christian population that has so far escaped the murderous onslaught of Washington, DC. Like Saul, before he became Paul, we are on the road to Damascus, Syria, to persecute and kill Christians.

What will the Lord do now? Have faith, my friends. It is all we have now and it is sufficient.

I want to take this opportunity to wish all our Orthodox brothers and sisters around the world, both those in the region where Christianity was born and those in the land that stands between persecuted Christians and the Satanic States of America, a blessed Resurrection Day!

I was in a Coptic Egyptian church in Lancaster County, PA, several decades ago when the presiding priest had the congregants stand at the end of the service, shake hands with each other and say to each other: He is risen!

God bless you all. He is risen!

In Christian Love,

US officials no longer cover lies about Syria, Russia

US officials don’t even bother to cover their lies about Syria

by Don Hank

Our Neocon Government used to make subtle suggestions and use obfuscation and omission to control your mind. Now they blatantly lie, even about things you can read about in the msm. Why? They know the public is so dumbed down anything goes. They can tell you on Sunday that it is Wednesday and the chances are you will believe it, cross off Wednesday on your calendar, write Sunday there and stay home from work.

Check out the first statement from a US Neocon official lying thru his teeth.

QUOTE: The [Russian] strikes hit targets in Homs and Hama, but there is no presence of ISIS in those areas, a senior U.S. defense official said¨[US official meme is that Russia ONLY attacks “moderates” and not ISIS – this supports the Neocon notion that Russia is evil and the US government is virtuous]

Really?

Title: ISIS seizes key Syrian town in… where? HOMS

Ya say ya don’t trust Al Arabiya? How about BBC, reporting in August 2015:

QUOTE: Islamic State ‘seizes Syria town of al-Qaryatain’ in Homs province

But what about Hama? the official assured us there was  no ISIS in Hama province. Ooops! The NYT gives the lie to that lie.

Reported on April 1

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/02/world/middleeast/syria-isis-advances-in-hama-and-damascus.html?_r=0

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Islamic State militants in Syria have seized new territory on multiple fronts in recent days, killing dozens of civilians in the central province of Hama, residents there said, and advancing on Wednesday into the chaotic Yarmouk district on the southern edge of Damascus.

NEVER NEVER NEVER pay a bit of attention to what a US official tells you about foreign affairs, especially about what the Russians are doing in Syria. Especially when they say Russia is not taking out ISIS. They will take out ISIS so fast your head will spin. On the other hand, if you believe the official US statements, your head is already spinning.

In that case, don’t forget to stay home from work on Sunday – you know, the day after Tuesday.
