When God gave rules to his people Israel, he told them to charge outsiders interest, but family is not to be charged interest. This creates wealth for those within the family of God and protection against poverty. God also provided wisdom for actions that diminish wealth. He mentioned drunkenness, partying, and whorish women should be avoided. Those who were unable to control their flesh would fall victim to diminished wealth and sorrow.
Do not give your strength to women, Or your ways to that which destroys kings. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, It is not for kings to drink wine, Or for rulers to desire strong drink, For they will drink and forget what is decreed, And pervert the rights of all the afflicted. Give strong drink to them that are perishing.
– Proverbs 31:4-6
You want to be wise in your dealings with evil men and women. Those who pervert sexuality, business, and money. You want understand their hate for God and his servants. You want to understand that few will inherit God’s kingdom and the road that leads to eternal life is narrow. Don’t fight the Word, but save yourself and teach your children so that they may escape God’s ultimate wrath when it arrives.
P.S. Many things lead to vanity and vexation of spirit. Do not expend too much energy for vanities sake, but have both eyes open and understand what the will of the Lord is for your life.
Mark Charles Barnett, 48 is accused in a plot to blow up several Target stores along the East Coast in an attempt to acquire cheap stock if the company’s stock value plunged after the explosions.
Mark Barnett was charged in a criminal complaint filed Thursday with possession of a firearm affecting commerce by a previously convicted felon, according to the U.S Attorney’s Office in Florida’s middle district. Barnett, a registered sex offender in Florida, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
A team of federal, state and local officials arrested Barnett Tuesday in a parking lot in Ocala. He was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he’s still being held. Jail records don’t say whether he’s hired a lawyer.
According to an affidavit, Barnett offered to pay another man $10,000 to place at least 10 “improvised explosive bombs” disguised in food-item packaging on store shelves from New York to Florida.
Notice the charges are not congruent with his action and he will probably be out again and as a 48 year old man the likelihood of him reforming is very small. He is already a repeat felon. Always be ready! Keep the Lord on your lips and pray for God to protect your family from terrorist, as your life may expire at the hands of another at any moment.

A heroin-dealing ex-cop — who was arrested three times in a year — was sentenced Friday to four years behind bars.
A Staten Island judge handed the stiff sentence to Stacey Staniland, 30, after she was kicked out of a court-ordered rehab center for selling drugs to other patients, officials said.
“We agree with the court’s decision to hold Ms. Staniland accountable for her crimes,” said Staten Island District Attorney Michael McMahon after the sentencing.
Staniland was assigned to the 122nd Precinct last year when cops busted her repeatedly for heroin possession — and once for a wild motorcycle crash.
She resigned from the force in July. Read more
White Americans are more likely than black Americans to have used most kinds of illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana and LSD. Yet blacks are far more likely to go to prison for drug offenses.
Nearly 20 percent of whites have used cocaine, compared with 10 percent of blacks and Latinos, according to a 2011 survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration — the most recent data available.
Higher percentages of whites have also tried hallucinogens, marijuana, pain relievers like OxyContin, and stimulants like methamphetamine, according to the survey. Crack is more popular among blacks than whites, but not by much.
The law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth; for the wicked surround the righteous; therefore justice goes forth perverted. “Look among the nations, watch, and wonder marvelously; for I am working a work in your days, which you will not believe though it is told you (Habakkuk 1:4-5).
Another week, another cluster of overdoses.
This time it happened in Louisville, Kentucky, where Louisville Metro Emergency Services responded to 52 overdose calls between midnight Wednesday and 8 a.m. ET Friday, said agency spokesman Mitchell Burmeister.
That was a big jump over the 25 overdose calls received in the same 32-hour time frame last week.
A breakdown of overdose causes was not available, but Burmeister said most of those calls were heroin overdoses. Paramedics also dealt with overdoses of alcohol, prescription medications and other controlled substances.
No overdose deaths were reported, but Burmeister said one person who’d been using heroin died while riding in a car that crashed. The driver also was using heroin, they said. Read more

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
