Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a technical consultant to the Obama administration during Obamacare’s design, also made clear during a panel quietly captured on video that the individual mandate, which was only upheld by the Supreme Court because it was a tax, was not actually a tax.
Veteran's Day devotional featuring the military service of a veteran contact chaplain to the Navy and Coast Guard. PRESENTED BY GOOD FAITH MINISTRIES (An arm of International Interfaith Ministries of which Dr. Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson says CBS News executives kept a clip of President Obama refusing to call the Benghazi attacks terrorism secret until after the election in order to help Obama's re-election.Obama was interviewed by Steve Kroft for "60 Minutes" the Sunday following the attack and said, "Well, it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved. One could also debate that whites are 77.7% of the population and only receiving 69% of government benefits. I was just reading that, white people make up 42% of the poor, but take in whopping 69% of government benefits. How do you explain ALL those that are in this country illegally getting ALL those Government benefits? A federal judge has struck down Arizona's 2005 immigrant smuggling law on the grounds that it's trumped by federal statutes. Bolton ruled the state law deprives federal authorities of their exclusive right to prosecute smuggling crimes. Republicans cheered the Supreme Court's decision to hear a challenge to the subsidies that are the backbone to Obamacare, saying that ruling in favor of the appeal would effectively destroy President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement."If they end up throwing it out, I don't see how Obamacare survives," Texas Rep. Now that the midterm elections are over, President Obama has invited congressional leaders from both parties to a meeting at the White House tomorrow.
After Michael Jordan recently criticized President Obama's golf game, Obama responded by saying that Jordan should spend more time thinking about his basketball team, the Charlotte Hornets. On Tuesday, Utah Candidate Mia Love became the first black Republican woman elected to Congress. It's a satire ladies, just think about it in comparison to compaints about imprisonment inequalities based on race.
And a big Amen to the voters for telling Obama about his 'policies' that he said were on the ballot.
Two years after upholding much of the law by a single vote, the justices today said they will hear a Republican-backed appeal targeting tax credits that have helped more than 4 million people afford insurance. A ruling blocking those credits might unravel the law, making other provisions ineffective and potentially destabilizing insurance markets in much of the country.
The justices will consider an appeal filed by four Virginia residents seeking to block the subsidies in 36 states. The law, intended to provide coverage to tens of millions of uninsured Americans, has been attacked by Republicans since it was passed on a party-line vote in 2010.
Those words are significant because only 14 states have set up their own marketplaces, known as exchanges. Under a rule issued by the Internal Revenue Service, consumers can claim tax credits no matter where they live.
Critics say Obama has adopted an interpretation that flies in the face of clear statutory language. In the case in front of the justices, a federal appeals court based in Richmond, Virginia, upheld the IRS regulation in July on a 3-0 vote. A Supreme Court ruling against the administration would open a new period of uncertainty about the future of American health care. That would potentially leave only the sickest and most desperate seeking insurance through the individual market. States might also invoke an Obamacare provision that lets them propose alternatives to the exchanges and get waivers from the federal rules starting in 2017. If some self-proclaimed prophet suddenly arose and began drawing crowds with stirring messages, healing the sick, raising the dead, bringing fire from heaven, and revealing knowledge of your personal secrets - would you believe in him or her? Answer: A They will remain until God's people are all unified, mature Christians--which, of course, will be at the end of time. Answer: A God warns us of false Christs and false prophets who will be so extremely convincing that they will deceive all except the very elect of God. Answer: A In Study Guide 23, we discovered that Jesus gives a six-point description of His end-time church. Answer: A Since a prophet is sometimes called a seer (someone who can see into the future), the eyes would best represent the gift of prophecy. Because God normally sends prophets to His church only when it is keeping His commandments. The way to make the gift of prophecy meaningful is to study it for yourself and follow it prayerfully so Jesus can guide and preserve you and prepare you for His coming.
When a skydiver steps to the edge of the aircraft door and leaps away from the plane, he knows there is no turning back. Answer: A The work of the Holy Spirit is to convict me of sin and to guide me into all truth. Answer: A When convicted of sin by the Holy Spirit, I must confess my sins in order to be forgiven. Answer: A God solemnly warns that the Holy Spirit does not indefinitely continue pleading with a person to turn from sin and obey God. Answer: A The Holy Spirit stops talking to a person when that individual becomes deaf to His voice. Answer: A The Bible rule is that when the Holy Spirit brings me new light or conviction of sin, I must act at once--obey without delay.
Answer: A Yes, if I steadfastly refuse to confess and forsake any sin, I will eventually become deaf to the Holy Spirit's pleading and thus pass the point of no return. Answer: A The Holy Spirit's pleading is like a fire that burns in a person's mind and heart. Answer: A Jesus solemnly warned that not all who have the feeling of assurance will enter His kingdom, but rather, only those who do His will. The Holy Spirit pleads with all people (John 1:9), just as the sun shines upon everyone and everything. Upon its return to the United States, it was hailed with a display of fireworks at New York Harbor, where Brother Joseph was personally greeted by the Coast Guard commandant. Supreme Court temporarily put out on hold a ruling that struck down an Arizona law that denies bail to people in the country illegally who are charged with certain crimes. District Judge Susan Bolton marked the latest in a string of restrictions placed by the courts on Arizona's effort to get local police to confront illegal immigration. Poorr working people would naturally receive more government benefits in the form of SSI and unemployment benefits. Supreme Court agreed to consider a challenge to the subsidies that are a linchpin of President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, accepting a case that suddenly puts the law under a new legal cloud. On the same day a federal appeals court in Washington reached the opposite conclusion, rejecting the administration’s approach in a 2-1 ruling. Without the tax credits, many of those people would find insurance so expensive that they would qualify for the law’s hardship exemption and no longer have to obtain a policy.
Would you like to have that kind of experience?A Well, that is exactly what happened to the children of Israel when they left Egypt and wandered in the wilderness for forty years. The perfecting of God's end-time church is not possible if any of these five gifts is missing. Although a prophet's message may sometimes edify the public, the primary purpose of prophecy is to serve the church. Here are the brief details:a€?a€?God Calls a Young Womana€?God's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance.
However, you can know that she (1) meets the tests of a prophet, (2) did the work of a prophet, and that (3) God's true end-time church must have a prophet.
Further, He clearly states that spiritual prosperity hinges upon believing His prophets (2 Chronicles 20:20). When a church does not have a prophet to counsel, guide, and lead it back to Jesus and the Bible, the people will flounder in a disoriented manner (Psalms 74:9) and eventually perish. In 1 Corinthians 12:28 it is listed as second in importance of all the gifts, while the gift of tongues is listed last. Here are the brief details:God Calls a Young WomanGod's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance. He's gone too far, and if he should forget to strap on his parachute, nothing can save him and he will certainly plummet to a frightening death. When I confess them, God not only forgives me but He also miraculously cleanses me from all unrighteousness.
Thus, any sin that I do not confess is unpardonable until I confess it, because forgiveness always follows confession. God says that those who refuse to receive the truth and conviction brought by the Holy Spirit will (after the Spirit departs from them) receive a strong delusion to believe that error is truth. Those who make Jesus the Lord and Ruler of their lives are promised the miracles of Jesus that will see them safely through to His eternal kingdom. Our loving desire is that you have been led into the presence of Jesus and have experienced a fantastic new relationship with Him. We get to know Him as a friend when we commune with Him daily, follow Him gladly, and freely share with Him our joys and sorrows as with an earthly friend. Even more important, he is affirming that the Holy Spirit of Christ can be grieved away by my rejection of His loving appeals.


He was referring to the tax credits that have helped more than 4 million people in 36 states afford health coverage."The whole pyramid scheme is based on forced dues, and if you don't force dues, and you don't force the states to subsidize, then a lot of people are not going to be able to afford it without that subsidy," Stockman added. While many provisions are popular, a majority of Americans say they disapprove of the law, polls show. The question is whether people can collect the subsidies even if they buy policies on the federal exchange. Your ultimate destiny just might be tied directly to your ability to distinguish between true and false prophets. So, in harmony with His promise of Amos 3:7, God then called a young woman named Ellen Harmon to be His prophetess.
It is so perceptive and relevant that it was once plagiarized by the minister of education of a certain nation, who published it under his own name. She said on the subject of intelligence that a person's IQ could be increased--long before experts agreed. And they meet the Bible standard for visions as outlined in the answer to question seven of this Study Guide.
These verses verify that when God's people disregard His commandments, He sends no prophet. God is waiting and ready to forgive me for any and every sin I may commit (Psalms 86:5), but only if I confess and forsake it. As I ignore the Holy Spirit and continue in sin, I pour water on the fire of the Holy Spirit. Jesus will then doubtless remind them of that crucial time in their lives when the Holy Spirit brought new truth and conviction. He--the King of kings, the Saviour of the world--takes time from superintending the universe to come to you and me for regular loving visits and friendly, caring guidance and counsel.
We hope that you will walk closer to the Master every day and will soon join that joyous group who will be translated into His blessed kingdom at His appearing. The Holy Spirit also has a different effect upon our hearts depending upon how we relate to His pleadings.
He was teaching truth and supporting it from the Old Testament, which was the Scriptures then available. Jesus is pointing out that when we understand what the Holy Spirit is asking us to do regarding some new light from the Scripture, we must act at once. As a courtship can be ended forever by the repeated refusal of one party to the other's wooing, so our relationship with the Holy Spirit can end permanently by our persistent refusal to respond to His loving appeals. This was a critical time for him as he was taken prisoner in the Soviet Union before the Iron Curtain fell, for giving out Bibles translated in Russian, after being a guest at the University of Moscow.
So when the Democrats went down in flames three days ago, guess who President Obama met with the next day? The word a€?tempteda€? comes from the Greek word peiradzo, an old Greek word that means to put to the test. Crystal balls, palm reading, leaf deciphering, astrology, and talking with the supposed spirits of the dead are not God's ways of communicating with people. She said in 1905 that cancer is a germ (or virus), which medical science began to endorse only in the 1950s. God knows when prophets are needed to wake people up, warn them, and turn them to Jesus and His Word. Jesus solemnly warns His end-time church of the danger of blindness and urges them to anoint their eyes with heavenly eyesalve so they will be able to see (Revelation 3:17, 18). The darkness that comes from a persistent and final refusal to follow light is the result of rejecting the Spirit, and it leaves me without hope. He knew that only the Holy Spirit could lead him to repentance and restoration, and he trembled at the thought of becoming deaf to His voice.
What folly, what an unbelievable calamity, that we should ever be too busy or too disinterested to form a warm, loving, lasting friendship with Jesus. Terrible Danger of Resisting the Holy SpiritResisting the Holy Spirit is terribly dangerous because it so easily leads to rejection of the Holy Spirit, which is the sin God can never forgive. Currently, Brother Joseph is a contact chaplain on behalf of International Interfaith Ministries to the many institutions that serve the public, including universities, hospitals, fire departments, and legislatures. Mike Huckabee likened any such affirmation by the justices to "taking the air out of the balloon.""You have nothing," he told Fox News' Neil Cavuto. Not Mitch McConnell, not John Boehner, not DNC Chairwoman (for now) Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
It meansA to test an object to see if its quality is as good as others have claimed, boasted, or advertised. The Scriptures teach plainly that all who become involved with such things are an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:12).
She had been injured in an accident at age nine and had to quit school with only three years of formal education.
She also directed people's attention to the Bible prophecies for the end time--especially Jesus' three-point message for the world today (Revelation 14:6-14)--and urged that they share these messages of hope quickly and worldwide. So when God's remnant church for the end time emerged keeping His commandments, it was time for a prophet.
Likewise, a person can condition himself to not hear an alarm clock ring by repeatedly shutting it off and not getting up. The Bible tells us in another place that God finally left Ephraim alone because he was joined to his idols (Hosea 4:17) and would not listen to the Spirit.
Don't quench the fire of the Holy Spirit by repeatedly refusing to heed the Spirit's voice. Nor do they obey Him.a€?a€?Jesus Clears the Aira€?Jesus says that true assurance is only for those who do His Father's will.
They have embraced a theology of salvation in sin or salvation by works--neither of which needs Jesus. Nor do they obey Him.Jesus Clears the AirJesus says that true assurance is only for those who do His Father's will. Earnest said, "The president is somebody who doesn’t make personnel changes just for cosmetic reasons. Forinstance, if you hear that a certain product is the finest of its kind in the world, it would be naturalA for you to want to check out and test the product to verify whether or not it really lives up to itsA claims.

He sent a prophet (John the Baptist) to prepare people for Jesus' first coming (Mark 1:1-8).

Her book on Christian living, Steps to Christ, has been translated into more than 150 languages and dialects. This subject is so important that God illustrates and explains it many different ways in Scripture.
It became unpardonable only because Judas refused to listen to the Holy Spirit and confess his sin of covetousness. The most tragic thing that can happen to any person is for God to have to turn away and leave him alone. Hence, He explains that He did not really get acquainted with them or know them as His personal friends.
If they hadna€™tA had the divine intervention of God, they would never have survived their flight from Egypt or their yearsA in the wilderness. She insisted that her aim and work were to point the church and its members to the Bible--which was to be its creed--and to Jesus' free gift of righteousness.

For a clear and penetrating answer, yet also full of hope, take a few minutes with this fascinating Study Guide. Although you didna€™t intend to get into that financial mess, you found yourself in a situation where you needed to see the goodness of God!
Remember, Jesus says He will bless His end-time church with most-helpful prophetic messages. Lucifer could have been pardoned and cleansed, but he refused to listen until he could no longer hear the Spirit's voice.a€?a€?C.

You had heard and believed that God is a supernatural Provider;therefore, in a certain sense, your situation created a moment when Goda€™s goodness and delivering power could be tested.
Her books, read worldwide, give inspired counsel on health, education, temperance, the Christian home, parenting, publishing and writing, assisting the needy, stewardship, evangelism, Christian living, and more.

This situation would be the equivalent of you saying, a€?Lord, You say that You are a great Provider, so I need You to show me who You are! They were convinced repeatedly with deep, heartfelt conviction that Jesus was the Messiah--the Son of the living God of heaven. It will lead people to heaven's judgment bar, feeling certain they are saved when they are, in fact, lost (Proverbs 16:25).
The word a€?proveda€? is takenA from the Greek wordA dokimadzo, which describes something that has been tested and found to be true and genuine. It can be also translated as something that is authentic, reliable, approved, trustworthy, and real.A Moses had declared the goodness of God to the children of Israel, but each challenge they facedA gave God an opportunity to prove that He is exactly as Moses had declared Him to be. Then one day, after another great miracle by Jesus, the Pharisees told the multitude that Jesus received His power from the devil.
He was truly repentant and later became one of the greatest preachers in the apostolic church. Christ at once told them that attributing His miracle-working power to the devil indicated they had passed the point of no return and had blasphemed the Holy Ghost. Please read Zechariah 7:12, 13 for God's sobering warning about hardening our hearts against hearing and obeying His Spirit's pleadings. But they refused until they were stone deaf to the Holy Spirit and could no longer be reached.
I Cannot Choose the ConsequencesWhen the Spirit makes His appeal, I can choose to respond or refuse, but I cannot choose the consequences.
But in a broader sense, horao carries the idea of seeing, perceiving, understanding, experiencing, and assimilating into onea€™s self.
This tells us that the children ofIsrael saw and experienced enough of Goda€™s power to fully understand and assimilate it into theirA consciousness. The Holy Spirit will seal, or mark, me in the forehead as a child of God (Revelation 7:2, 3), and thus assure me of a place in God's heavenly kingdom. If I persistently refuse to respond, I will grieve the Holy Spirit away and He will leave me forever, thus sealing my doom.
It's full of problems — and it's being litigated all over, and people are still trying to figure it out. If this is true, and if you take into account that God fed His people every day for 40 years, this meansA 65,700,000 tonsA of manna supernaturally appeared on the ground over a period of forty years! A This manna appeared so regularly, so faithfully, so a€?day in and day out,a€? that after a while, theA children of Israel didna€™t even think too much of it anymore. Supernatural provision became so commonplaceA among them that they forgot how supernatural it was and began to accept it as a normal,A regular occurrence. Thata€™s right a€” if each Israelite ate only one quail a day, in one month it would amount to 90,000,000 quail. If they ate two quail a day, the total numberA needed to feed them all for thirty days would rise toA 180,000,000 quail. Thata€™s how many quail it took to feed that crowd of three million Israelites in a thirty-day period.
The thick clouds of quail must have been dense enough to nearly block the peoplea€™s view of the sun!
From what distance did God supernaturally call in the quail to feed the children of Israel?A This phenomenon simply could not be naturally explained. It was just as miraculous as the 4,500 tons of manna that miraculously appeared on the ground everyA morning for forty years.A How about the water that came out of the rock to meet the Israelitesa€™ need for water in the wilderness? Do you have any idea how much water it would take to support three million Israelites in the blistering hot temperatures of the wilderness?
And consider the amount of water it would have taken to adequatelyA nourish 3,000,000 people and all the animals in the hot temperatures of the wilderness. But because there was no natural source of water, it had to be provided for themA supernaturally.A So God told Moses to strike the rock (see Exodus 17). And once water started to flow, it continued to flowA and flow and flow, providing all the water needed by the people of God. After experiencing this kind of miraculous supply on such a continual basis, they should have trusted the Lord andA found it easy to follow Him. Hadna€™t He always supernaturally provided what they needed when there was no natural provision to be found? What a privileged generation they were to see such marvelous acts of God!A But in spite of all the Israelites had seen, experienced, and assimilated about Goda€™s goodness, they became hardhearted. It was also used to describe the hardened soil of the desert a€” soil that was so hardened that water was unable to penetrate it and instead rolled right off.
Is it possible that they became calloused toA the goodness of God because He had showered them with so much goodness? The word a€?hardena€? seems to imply they becameA so calloused that nothing impressed them anymore. No matter how much of Goda€™s Spirit was poured out on them, His Presence justA rolled off them, unable to penetrate their hard hearts.
He changed you, healed you, delivered you, rescued your family,A gave you a new job, answered your prayers, and provided for you financially time and time again,A showering you with blessing upon blessing over the years. He proved Himself again and again, repeatedlyA demonstrating that He is reliable, trustworthy, and true. ItA is true that You have showered me with nonstop blessings a€” and today I want to take thisA opportunity to thank You for every good thing Youa€™ve done in my life. The situations I haveA faced in my life have put You to the test, and You have jumped at every chance to prove howA good You are. I have everyA reason to trust Him, for He has proven Himself to me again and again and I know He willA never let me down. As you read todaya€™s Breakfast, did you begin to think of all the times God has supernaturally provided for your own life? It would be very beneficial for youA to take a few minutes to reflect on all the times God has miraculously suppliedA what you needed.A 2. Have you had so many miraculous provisions in your life that youa€™ve begunA to lose your appreciation for all that God has done for you?
