What the Bird Said Early in the Year

C.S. Lewis captures the hope of Eden restored in his poem “What the Bird Said Early in the Year:”

I heard in Addison’s Walk a bird sing clear:
This year the summer will come true. This year. This year.

Winds will not strip the blossom from the apple trees
This year nor want of rain destroy the peas.

This year time’s nature will no more defeat you.
Nor all the promised moments in their passing cheat you.

This time they will not lead you round and back
To Autumn, one year older, by the well worn track.

This year, this year, as all these flowers foretell,
We shall escape the circle and undo the spell.

Often deceived, yet open once again your heart,
Quick, quick, quick, quick! – the gates are drawn apart.

The Simple Gospel

My goal is not to offend anyone, but I’m really concerned about you. Time is running out. Christ’s return is drawing near and He is only coming back for those who have repented of their sins, who have confessed openly that Jesus is God and Savior, and actually believe it in their hearts. Our salvation is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Saying a “sinner’s prayer” and living for oneself is not a guarantee of salvation.

Many men calling themselves Christians have preached a false gospel of health and wealth, of signs and wonders, of supernatural experiences. They’ve falsely prophesied of God’s favor, and of coming revival. They downplay the sufficiency of God’s written Word, and elevate mystical visions and encounters. They have ignored the reality of sin, and the depths of our depravity.

The truth is that we are all wretched sinners who are helpless to free ourselves from our sin. We need a Savior. On Judgment Day we will either be measured by our righteousness (which will condemn us) or by the righteousness of Christ (which will save us).

The Good News is that for the glory of God the Father, Jesus Christ who is God the Son bore the wrath of the Father that we deserve. The Father tore apart and bled out the body of the Son so that we no longer need to be condemned.

Because the Son glorified the Father with His sacrifice on the cross, we now can be reconciled to God by His grace, through faith in Jesus alone. This gift of grace is offered to anyone who will believe and put his trust in the only God who can save.

Even those of us who truly believe still need the Gospel. Through this real faith in Jesus alone, He will transform us from living like and loving the things of the world, and to be devout followers of Him. We will start to despise our sin, and wrestle with obeying God. We may not immediately be free from the temptation of sin, but our desire to live righteously will grow.

One who truly professes a saving faith in Christ will seek out the fellowship of other Christians in a local church that is sound in teaching the Word of God.

It is only that I love and care for you that I’m willing to risk offending you so that the Holy Spirit might draw you to salvation. Please consider what I have written and humbly yield your entire life to Jesus. This Gospel will save you and transform you.

REPORT: Lt Gen McInerney Reports US Special Forces Attacked CIA Server Farm In Germany In Server Seizure Operation, 5 Soldiers Killed, Servers Secured

I do not attest to the veracity of this article. I only preserve it here if it turns out to be true and is censored. This article either is true or is part of a great disinformation campaign.

God, help our republic!

In stunning testimony, McInerney stated his sources have told him U.S. Army Special Forces, possibly the famed Delta Force, raided the CIA-run server farm in Frankfurt, Germany.

5 soldiers were killed in the ensuing firefight, as well as one CIA paramilitary; the CIA personnel were allegedly flown in from Afghanistan for security, according to related news reports.

Subsequent review of the secured servers yielded proof that China, Iran, and Russia were involved in the attempted coup against President Donald Trump, who will be shown to have won an overwhelming victory for the American people, McInerney revealed.

“These people have committed treason,” declared McInerney. He pleaded with President Trump to not leave office until the treason is uncovered, otherwise America will be fatally wounded and ripe for takeover by our enemies.

McInerney also stated that he believes President Trump knew the steal was coming, hence his executive order issued for sanctions for interference in our elections by foreign powers.

According to his bio, McInerney was a forward air controller and fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and had flown 407 combat missions during his four tours of duty. In other words, a patriot and trustworthy.

Reports are now circulating that General Flynn is involved in helping the President with a private intelligence operation.
