David at the end of his life

Kings1 2:5  “Moreover, you also know what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, how he dealt with the two commanders of the armies of Israel, Abner the son of Ner, and Amasa the son of Jether, whom he killed, avenging in time of peace for blood that had been shed in war, and putting the blood of war on the belt around his waist and on the sandals on his feet.

Last night, before sleeping, I was thinking of David, how he, in his later life, reduced killing of people.  But I was wrong.  This morning when I read this verse, I was shocked.  He was a killer and even at his death bed talking (advicing) about killing people to his son (would be king of Israel).

If it were war, that’s a different story.  No wonder, the Lord would not allow him to build the temple, because his hands were bloody!

One thing, is sure, most (not all) his killings were in war or war related.  Yet a significant amout of his killings are not war related.

I was glad he did not kill the man who cursed him when he was running from Absolom, but towards the end of his life, in this chapter, he tells his son to do the killing for him.

I wonder, was that his last wish, apart from advicing (first part hos his advice) his son to follow in the footsteps of the Lord and please him.

Okay, in conclusion, David was a very bloody man.  Thank God, Solomon did not follow in this step(so much) but followed other footsteps (many concubines) of his daddy.  Oh, did he beat his daddy in this (smile).

update on pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Someone at ACLJ risked his/her life to get the “apostacy documents” at Iran.  Hence the news are on Media( Fox, CBN).

Pastor youcef’s wife was in jail for a year.

Pastor Youcef’s attorney’s (a muslim) life is at risk too for standing.

Recentlly, Iran changes/adds charges from “apostacy” to “rapist, brothel owner(for running a school for girls), extortionist(misuses money), zionist(traitor to Iran)” on Pastor Youcef.  Iran could exexute without a verdict.

Secretary of State, Ms. Clinton did not clearly state about releasing pastor youcef to the media.

This is the true face of Islam… – Franklin Graham

Youcef Nadarkhani

An Iranian pastor is in trouble for leaving Islaam.

It all started when he wanted to provide christian education to his chidlren.

As of October 2, 2011, he is still alive. In the next 24 hours, he will be given another chance to deny his faith and save his life.

When asked to deny his faith, he reply was “Rpent means return, should I return to the blasphemy that I was in before?”

Pray that he will continue to stand firm as before.

He is a pastor of 400-member church in Iran for about 10 years.

Here is a link to more details on ACLJ.  ACLJ is appealing for word from Sec. State Clinton or President Barack Hussein Obama.  The President has not said a word yet.

Al-Queda Magazine

The first edition of an al-Qaeda terrorist magazine written in English boasted the headline “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom” in July. Now its second edition includes some more equally chilling articles: “Tips for Our Brothers in the United Snakes of America,”* and “I am Proud to be a Traitor to America.”

This article is an excerpt from the original artical on theblaze.com which describes the ‘teachings’ of al-queda on its magazine.

Not long ago, while I was watching a video on ABNSAT, I came accross this quote by the Hamas adherents.

Allah is its goal, the prophet is its model, the Koran is its constitution, jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is its most coveted desire– Hamas Motto quote
