First you thank me for what I wrote, then you proceeded to write that I was wrong in what I wrote. Amazing, I will attempt to tell you that you are correct about something before telling you where you are wrong.
You are quite right when you write that there was creation of the angels and also God’s abode before creation in the beginning.
God asked Job, “Where were you when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.” (Job 37:7) This was at the time of the beginning so they must have been created before the beginning. No mention is made of the creation of where God dwells, heaven, yet the place is mentioned in scripture. So, it had to be created before the beginning.
Scripture says, “God created,” and not, “the devil destroyed.” This creation is referring to the absolute beginning of this temporal and material world and universe (Liberty Annotated Study Bible P. 5).
Heaven is the place in which to put God’s new creation. Earth being formless and void covered with water is the condition of the earth when newly created. Darkness, God did this in the dark for to Him light and darkness are alike in that He can see equally well in ether situation (Ps. 139:12). The Liberty Annotated Study Bible states that the deep is the water covering the earth. I prefer to think that it is the space in which God made to put the stars. This is truly deep; much deeper than the water covering the earth. I think the Study Bible is incorrect at this point, but will acknowledge that they could be correct.
Further, the Liberty Annotated Study Bible states on page 5, “God created the original heaven and earth from nothing (Lat. ex nihilo) and that verse 2 clarifies that when it came from the Creator’s hand, the mass was “without form” and “void,” unformed and without any life. The rest of the chapter then explains the process of creation in detail. There is no evidence in the Hebrew text for long ages of evolutionary development or of a gap of time between verse 1 and 2.”
In ninth grade science class my teacher asked, “Where did all this come from?” I was the only one to raise my hand and when the teacher pointed on me to give the answer I said, “Nothing”. Immediately, the teacher and the whole class burst out laughing. However, I was correct.
There is evidence that each day was 24 hours in length and that there was six of those days in which the Creator worked. In the text it says evening and morning the first day. We have 24 hour days today with seven days in a week. God says He worked six days and rested the seventh. Therefore the children of Israel were to work six says and rest the seventh. We have God’s word on it.
I will give you this admonition:
II Timothy 2:15:
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Jesse, you appear to not be willing to take the Holy Bible for what it says. God says He is creating and you say the devil is destroying. Both positions cannot be correct. You write that God divides. Again God says He is creating. You seem to have a destructive and an imprecise bias.
Jesse, you write, “What follows? God “divides” day from night, firmament from water, water from land, kind from kind, man from women, etc…” None of this is true. You are not being accurate in your observation or in your thinking. You need to be more precise.
God divided the light from the darkness. The light He called day and the darkness He called night. God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters.” He divided the waters from below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. The expanse God calls heaven. God said, “Let the waters under heaven be gathered together into one place and let the dry land appear.” God said, “Let the earth bring forth herbs and fruit trees yielding fruit after its kind.” God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heaven to divide the day from the night.” God put the man into a deep sleep and took the rib out of Adam and closed up the flesh of Adam and fashioned a women. This is all a part of creation by God.
We read of the demise of Satan in Isaiah 14:12-21 and also in Ezekiel 28:2-19. The angels fell by the fail of Satan which we read in Revelation 12:3,4. War will take place in heaven during the Great Tribulation and Satan and his angels will be cast out of heaven to earth Revelation 12:7-9. Satan will no longer have access to the throne of God to accuse the people of God before God any more.
Jesse, may God grant you understanding of His word.

"So the dog has created more shovel-ready jobs than he has..."
- - - Jay Leno
The expected fall House cleaning on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 must include the defeat of five incumbent Democrats. The five that need to be sent packing are:
· OH-01: Fire Steve Driehaus (D) Hire Steve Chabot (R)
· OH-13: Unseat Betty Sutton (D) Welcome Tom Ganley (R)
· OH-15: Let Go Mary Jo Kilroy (D) Bring Back Steve Stivers (R)
· OH-16: Bye Bye John Boccieri (D) Say Hi to Jim Renacci (R)
· OH-18: Send Off Zack Space (D) Elect Bob Gibbs (R)
Here is why
In fact, on all of the 8 important issues listed below Representatives Driehaus, Sutton and Kilroy voted YES on all 8 matters. Congressman Boccieri voted NO on only one of the eight matters, while Congressman Space voted NO a whopping twice. Here are the issues.
2009-10 Congressional Scorecard for these Issues:
1. “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” (Stimulus bill) February 13, 2009
2. “Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act” April 29, 2009
3. “American Clean Energy and Security Act” (Cap-and-Trade Emissions Limits) June 26, 2009
4. “Financial Industry Regulation” (financial ‘reform,’ creates new government agency, large expansion of regulation) Dec.
5. “Affordable Health Care for America Act” (House version of ObamaCare) Nov. 7. 2009
6. “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (Senate version of ObamaCare) March 21,
7. Murphy Amendment to the Defense Authorizations Act (Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Policy)
8. DISCLOSE Act (would place restrictions on organizational election activity) June 24, 2010
Hat tip goes to Faith2Action.com for compiling the votes on the issues for the incumbents discussed above.
Interestingly, two of the 5 candidates, Driehaus and Sutton are mentioned tonight in a Politico.com article, "House: The Daily 10." Ohio is being watched nationally. It is a key state in this election as it has been in other recent elections.

I now endorse Charlie Earl for Ohio Secretary of State based on in the information I received from Principled Policy Yahoo! Group concerning Mr. Earl's support of an Ohio Personhood Amendment.
Maryellen O'Shaughnessy (Democrat)
This woman is endorsed by a bunch of anti-Christian death-loving perverts, including the pro-abortion group EMILY's List, and several sodomite groups, including Dayton Area Stonewall Democrats, Equality Ohio, Stonewall Democrats of Central Ohio, and Stonewall Democrats of Summit County. The Buckeye Firearms Association gives her an F.
Jon Husted (Republican)
According to Husted's website, "As Speaker of the House, Jon Husted fought to preserve opening prayer before House session. Husted protected guest pastor prayer, and in a memo to the House Clerk stated that as “the leader of this esteemed chamber, I will not allow our prayers to be censored.” After questions about the policy arose, Husted stood strong on the principles of free speech and religious tolerance by protecting the important tradition of reflection and guidance through prayer."
His website also says he opposes using tax dollars to fund or promote abortion.
However, Mr. Husted was the state campaign manager for pro-abortion Jennette Bradley's campaign. When a bill was introduced in the Ohio legislature to ban all abortions, Mr. Husted, who was then the Speaker of the House, did not support the bill and said he would not schedule a hearing for it. Only after the bill's sponsor, Tom Brinkman, made a deal with Mr. Husted did Mr. Husted schedule one hearing. Mr. Husted promised Mr. Brinkman that he would schedule another hearing, but he never did. (I know this because Mr. Brinkman told me.)
According to Chris Littleton, President of the Ohio Liberty Council, Husted’s other fiscally irresponsible and market-inhibiting votes include increased regulation in the mortgage lending bill, short term loans, a vote for the Commercial Activity Tax, and irresponsible budgets. According to the Buckeye Institute, during Husted's time as Speaker of the House, 2005 to 2009, spending increased an average of $3 billion per year. In 2010, Husted voted yes for the corporate welfare program called Third Frontier.
Charlie Earl (Libertarian)
Mr. Earl is a former State Representative. He professes to be a God-fearing Christian.
His website says "Charlie Earl is dedicated to the principle that the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Ohio provide the fundamental basis for self governance in our state and in our nation. He believes, further, that any law, action, rule or regulation that violates either Constitution should not be implemented or enforced. In addition, Charlie pledges that he will not willingly engage in any activity as Secretary of State for Ohio that does not conform with both Constitutions."
Mr. Earl supports an Ohio Personhood Amendment to guarantee legal protection to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being. When I asked him if he would issue a business "license" to an abortion facility, he says "I will NOT do anything as Ohio SoS that violates either
Constitution, and that includes the issuing of permits or licenses for any entity that takes life."
Mr. Earl's website says "Dedicated to enforcing free, fair and efficient elections, Charlie will strive to insure that every legal state citizen who is registered to vote can rest assured that her/his vote will be counted fairly and efficiently... and once for each election."
And "as Secretary of State, Charlie will address efforts to attain ballot status in a pro-active manner. In other words, the "benefit of the doubt" will always be in favor of the petitioner rather than a stance that assumes all petitions are corrupt, inadequate or incomplete."
Also, "As Secretary of State, Charlie Earl will have a seat on the Apportionment Board I the body responsible for redrawing legislative districts.... As a member of a third party, the Libertarian Party, Charlie can play a pivotal role in the redistricting process. He will, in effect, be the swing vote that assures that NO backroom deals or incumbent-protection districts prevail."
I ENDORSE CHARLIE EARL for Ohio Secretary of State!
I don’t know yet who I am going to vote for in this race.

I was very interested in what they had to say. The comments were geared mostly on
Two of the speakers quoted the RealClearPolitics.com Generic Ballot, which is a composite of several different national polls. As of 10/27/2010 the GOP is projected to pick up 8 seats, leaving the Democrats still in the majority. Senate races in WV, NV, IL and CO were very close or tied.
In the House the Republicans are projected to gain the majority taking anywhere between 39 – 77 seats. Out of the 435 House seats up for grabs, only about 100 are competitive. A number of Democrats are retiring to spend time with families, which is code for ‘I’m quitting before my constituents’ fire me.’ Several in Congress are feeling the heat (of the boiling hot TEA maybe?)
In addition the Republicans are expected to pick up 7 governorships.
None of the 4 experts thought that Health Care “Reform” would be repealed outright. Any attempt to repeal would be vetoed by the President. Deadlock and incremental changes to the bill were the expected outcome in the post election battles over the new health care ‘reform’ law.
One thing that really struck me regarding
Rob Portman (R) has a very impressive lead over Lee Fisher (D) in the race for vacillating George Voinovich’s vacated seat. Portman leads by some 18 percentage points.
One U.S. House of Representatives race that is very close is the Democrat incumbent Zach Space (18th District) versus Republican Bob Gibbs. That race is very close.
Currently the Ohio State House is controlled by the Democrats and the Ohio Senate is controlled by the Republicans. The Democrats are projected to keep control of the House, but by a slimmer margin. The Republicans are expected to keep control of the Senate.
How the various voting districts will be apportioned is another key item to look at in this election. Based on the 2010 census,
The board consists of one Democratic Representative and one Republican representative. The other three positions include: the Ohio Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Governor. Right now The Republican Jon Husted is ahead of his Democratic opponent, while the Ohio State Auditor race sees Democrat David Pepper winning against the Republican. If that holds true, it will mean that the gubernatorial race will determine which party will be controlling the apportionment process.
To say Tom Tancredo has taken a strong position on the problem of the invasion of illegal aliens is an understatement. He was one of the lone voices in either party urging the government to do something about our open, unsecured borders. Tancredo is running for the office of Colorado governor. He is closing the gap against the front runner, a Democrat.

President (Barry Soetoro aka Barack) Obama’s Top Priority?
The American Voter’s Top Priority?
Stopping Obama’s Agenda!
Vote to Fire Congress.
Hat tip goes to Mark Levin Radio Show (see MarkLevin.com) where I first here the audio of this excellent satire on Senator Boxer's infamous put down of the military official who dared to call her 'ma'am'! This election I am hopeful that the voters of California will reinstate her to civilian life where she could proudly wear the label "former Senator" or "ma'am!"
