Am I Envious Toward the Wicked? From Psalm 37

Stephen Nielsen

After reading about how some who are, and have been, in political office, and have used their position to make millions, and I have to work hard for every dollar I make, I wonder, because of the way I feel, if I am guilty of the sin of envy?

So many are living the billionaire lifestyle, not by working but by using people—people that they were supposed to be serving. They are not business people or entrepreneurs; they are scam artists and they know how to work the system.

So anyway, after reading about all this, I think I may feel a little envious. I mean I don’t really want to do what they do, or be like them; but maybe just make more money and make it easier. I try to be content and be honest at my work and treat people fairly and not worry about what others…

Digital Tyranny Coming Soon – 6 Points

Stephen Nielsen

In the back of my mind, I’m always wondering how safe my savings is and when this new digital currency is coming. Being a Christian, I’m not too concerned, but it always pays to be somewhat cautious.

I just read an article by John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute on this subject. I will share six points from it.

  1. The government has come up with a new plan to make it easier for its agents to seize Americans’ bank accounts. It will be by the digital dollar.
  2. President Biden, on March 9, 2022, issued an Executive order calling for the federal government to consider establishing a U.S Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Look out!
  3. Meanwhile, the FBI and the Justice Department have quietly moved ahead with plans for a crypto-currency enforcement team (digital money cops). What will they be doing?
  4. The government will tell us that they are giving…

Do I Fear the Lord? from Psalm 112

Stephen Nielsen

Do I fear the Lord?

Do I delight in His Word?

If so I will be blessed.

And there will be light in the darkness.

I will never be shaken.

I will not be afraid of evil tidings.

My heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.

The desire of the wicked will perish.

(from Psalm 112)

Living for Likes

Stephen Nielsen

I ran across a short article by Hal Lindsey entitled, “Living for Likes on Social Media.” He insinuated that we in America have “made a god out of popularity on social media.” Ouch! That is kind of convicting. I think that we all like to be liked by others, but I think we can let it go too far. When we start to live for those likes, when we go out of our way to get more likes on Facebook, we go too far. We may be guilty of making a god out of popularity.

Well, I’m not on Facebook, but I’m on a blog—as you know. And I don’t get very many likes—just one or two per blog. I sort of wish I would get more, just to know that someone is reading me. But now that I read this article by Lindsey, I feel better—more content. I don’t…

The Meaning of Identity Socialism

Stephen Nielsen

Most of us have heard of identity politics. Well, identify socialism is similar but it has a whole new application. And, as far as I know, it is a term made up by the bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza. So, we will start by some of his words.

An Article by Dinesh D’Souza

What is Identity Socialism?

Dinesh D’Souza

There’s a new socialism in town. I call it “identity socialism.” The old socialism, the kind Karl Marx dreamed up, was all about the working class—the sort of blue-collar worker who, ironically, voted for President Trump. But today’s socialist couldn’t care less about the guy in the hardhat. He had his chance at revolution and blew it. Today’s socialist is all about race, gender and transgender rights. Class is an afterthought.

To understand this is to understand the left’s takeover of the college campus and all the ills that takeover has spawned:…

Update: Feelings about every Little Thing

Stephen Nielsen

I’ll start off with my overall feelings—how I feel, generally, about everything, about every little thing. I mean it seems like so many things are beginning to pile up on me and making me anxious. I suppose that’s why I think it’s time for an update. I need a vent. I need to put things in perspective, to organize, and most of all to bring things to the Lord—the One who knows it all and who cares.

I can’t find an adequate description of how things are with me. There are fears and worries and tiredness and some regrets and some health issues and just a lack of clarity about things. And then I worry about what is happening to me. Okay, I have a list I want to work through—mainly for my sake, but you can listen in if you want.

I heard the other day that…

A Brave Mother Robin

Stephen Nielsen

The battled-scared mother Robin

About a week ago a brave mother Robin did all she could to fight off a large hawk. It looked like a Red-Tailed hawk–very large.

Red-Tailed Hawk

I saw it in my living rook window. I immediately thought, Oh no the baby birds. So I ran to the window and scared it away. I looked down at the Robin’s nest to discover that there was only two babies in the nest. The hawk must have carried the other two off. Then a couple hours later, while I was working in another room, I heard a commotion and birds chirping. I went to the living room window to discover that the nest was empty. Too late! The chicks were gone.

The four baby chicks right outside my window.

Then I saw her. The mother Robin was near by perched on a tall dead tree stump. I thought…

The January 6th Trial: Out to Get Trump!

Stephen Nielsen

The Jan 6th trial is not about saving America. It is just about getting Donald Trump.

I am so sick of these illegal trials—or whatever you call it (hearings). I read today in my newspaper that the rioters were “heavily armed with military-grade equipment and AR-15s”… and that they “had guns, knives, oversized sticks, bear spray and spears.”

Well. if they had all of that, why is it that no one was killed—only one girl was shot by the D.C. police. It’s all a bunch of lies!

This whole Jan 6th trial is illegal and fraudulent—because it is all one sided. They have not allowed anyone from the other side to testify at all. All the witnesses are out to get Trump. YOU KNOW THAT! It is all focused on accusing Trump. They (Pelosi and company) have one goal: to prosecute Trump and prevent him from running again.

When Good and Bad Clash

Stephen Nielsen

It seems that, with this new abortion ruling, we are seeing new extremes for good and for bad. The abortionists are venting their anger and the pro-lifers are venting their joy. I just hope we pro-lifers will not feel sorry for the sad abortionists. They have been guilty of sin too long. Their time has come. Let them meet God.

Similarly, let all Christians see sin and evil for what it is. If there are evil spirits and demons, let them be called out in Jesus’ name. If there is ongoing sin, let it be quickly rejected. It is time now to stand strong for Jesus.

There will soon be coming on the earth the ultimate stand-off between good and evil. It will happen after the Rapture—so we might see it from heaven. It will be the battle between the two witnesses who will preach the truth, and the Antichrist…
