Sun Sep 11th Todays News

Turnbull has lied to Christians about a plebiscite. 
There never was a Palestine. The name is what the Romans called Jewish administrators. Jordan had a civil war in recent times and the terrorists who failed to overthrow Jordan ran to claim the territory as Palestinians. Palestine never had a king, never had currency, and had no culture. In some ways, it is a bit like those refugees who are really terrorists.=
In Hillary's defence, she is a formidable lawyer and says what she means. But not always what she thinks.=
The 22 year old, is he from an ancient Presbyterian homeland, ethnically?=
Under Turnbull, the Liberals will continue to do worse than when he was a cabinet minister. Turnbull needs to go further than Dastayari.=
New Moon festival at Springvale, in Melbourne. It is good to see happy, excited children. Some playing with balloons. Mainly their faces beam as they prepare for food coma following a big day. But while it may feel like all is right with the world, there are some things that are terribly wrong. 

It is US Patriots Day. Anniversary of the evil 911 attacks that happened as a direct result of Bill Clinton being elected President twice. Bill weakened the CIA in the Middle East as a cost measure. 

In NSW Council elections have ended for places with councils that function. There are many places where councils did not function. The ALP have taken many for granted where they dominate council. It is disappointing Fairfield, despite a split ALP vote, did not change hands after Liberal Party infighting. Dai Le had good support, but it was not enough. 

An ISIL wannabe stabbed a man in Sydney, but ABC refused to mention the motivation for the attack. It is apparently more comforting if the attack is described as random. Meanwhile, an ABC presenter describes the Israeli West Bank as occupied. Their tacit support for terrorists over homeowners is noted. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

It is Patriot Day in USA and time to remember why we are at war with terror. It is also an election year for US Congress. Two years ago, in another election year, Obama was dancing with Beyonce and unable to be contacted when his personal pick for Libyan ambassador was calling for help over a terrorist hit. Sadly Hilary Clinton was on hand to deny aid and give weapons to ISIS forces without interference from special forces. Clinton and Rice blamed an Egyptian Coptic filmmaker, even pointing him out to terrorists, as reason for the attack. The White house had been in election mode and had claimed Al Qaeda was no more as an international force. When Romney referred to it in debate, media mugged him for Obama. A year later, Obama had wanted to bomb Syria in favour of ISIS. Russia said 'no' and so the White house favoured an illegitimate government in Ukraine which forced Moscow to claim their own naval dock yard and brought ethnic tensions to the surface in Ukraine which resulted in MH17. Obama needs to project strength if he is to get a congress that will work to his agenda, but who feels that such a congress would be worthwhile? As Bill Clinton showed, a hostile congress can get good bills past an incompetent President. 

It is Patriot day and worth remembering victims of 9/11. An Australian wife of a victim at the World Trade Centre has opened a door to his room for the first time since that day. Their child is teaching at a high school. It is worse than a life interrupted, there are all the blessings of a life together and the growth together, the nesting, the aims for a future .. and it was all denied forever. It was terror, but many Islamic leaders have claimed it was Islam which which committed the atrocity. In the Middle East people are recorded cheering the atrocity. Saddam Hussein in Iraq paid money to suicide bombers after the event. There was, as then President Bush noted, an Axis of Evil. People claiming that there was a purpose to the evil, twisting a knife into families of victims. And the cause, at the root, is no different from that which Israel has defended herself from her beginning as a modern state. Terror has changed us in the west. But the legacy of what has made the west great is still there. Left wing discourse on the issue is very wide of the mark and looking flaky because of it. 'War for oil' ? We need to be humble. We need to own our mistakes. We need to want to be free. We need to fight for our treasure. The soldiers that fought for America in WW2 are correctly referred to as 'The Greatest Generation.' But what will they call those who in the face of terrorism got confused? For thirteen years since 9/11, activists have failed to explain what happened in their discourse of why things happen. ABC continues to oppose Australia in war. Australia has a proud history in war, but not perfect. The ABC view seems oppositional, one sided, corrosive, misguided and contrary to their charter. Meanwhile opposition leader Shorten has tried to torpedo a $20 billion submarine deal with Japan which might force a bad $40 billion deal with people who cannot produce excellent vehicles with equivalent speed. No doubt Shorten will be excused for any digger that dies as a result of his bad speech. 

The Lin family murders were horrible and so far not fully explained. A relative is facing court in relation to the killings. They had custody of a survivor who had been absent at the time of the killings. The survivor, a young female, is alleging sexual abuse by her subsequent guardian which others feel could be a motive. The child survivor has not done anything wrong and deserves much better than what she has so far been given in life. But many things are unfair. presaging Pistorius verdict, Leigh Sales on ABC 7:30 report calls Pistorius a "Fallen hero." The judge at trial has presaged the verdict by taking on board serious issues raised by the defence. He has been found not guilty of murder. One can still hope for a custodial sentence and disgrace related to his behaviour. ICAC has heard how a $20k check from a banned donor developer did not go directly to the Liberal Party but instead went to what they called a slush fund. So the ICAC does not think slush funds are appropriate? Under what circumstances might they be? Still the ICAC has no evidence of corruption. Injustice has no end. 

Aboriginal children are suffering from racist myths just as 1400 children of Rotherham have. Racism needs to be opposed, but it isn't being opposed rationally by laws that claim to, like 18c. Nobody has proposed a better defence than a free press to safeguard western nations from corruption, but the press have a strong left wing agenda and are weak, not free. And the suppression of free speech has resulted in the abuse detailed in the top end of Australia, and Rotherham, in numbers that would not be tolerated were the news known, and not censored by race. An Australian detective is working to protect children from pedophiles in South East Asia. He has sacrificed everything to do so after being on holiday and approached by a pimp with an offer. In Australia Federal Border Protection and Immigration Minister Morrison has done a brilliant job to date, but deserve to be given access to Temporary Protection Visas to do even better. A child of a newly arrived Afghan couple has died after falling into a creek at a barbecue. Three years old, surviving a harsh journey, only to fall in a tragic accident. 

Frightbats of the media are lying and feeding a false narrative of the world. They trip up on facts, but their fans don't notice, or defend them. One statistic that fails the anti government rhetoric is the unemployment statistic that has over 120k employed recently, but no reason for it. There was a chilling statistic recently suggesting unemployment rose for no reason too. One unexplained fact gets accepted by the anti government rabble, another is rejected from the same source, suggesting it is the narrative that is wrong. There are difficult jobs, like that of cabinet minister for the stool of a King, but what about jobs done for free, unpaid, out of love? Google has such a wonderful permanent frat party aspect for her workers so that some don't bother having homes. A solar storm approaches Australia, but we will survive. Ebola has been reported as not being in Australia after a sick person complained it might be. Self diagnosis is fraught. 
From 2013
We begin tonight and the editorial will finish with Saddam Hussein. Today is 9/11. On the eleventh of September 2001 some terrorists claiming to be Islamic took down four flights of commercial aircraft and killed thousands of people, changing the way democracy works in America. The day was chosen because of the emergency call number in the US. But any excuse could be made. Terrorism has no meaning, and should never be allowed to win, or be seen to win. Pointed look at Obama. 

The left wing dominate the free press, but don't have moral rectitude. Abbott's daughters have been pictured with Mr Abbott on the FB page "Furiously Masturbating to Abbott's Daughters" The page has been reported to FB, which replies it is within the bounds of community standards. In the same vein as having a biased press is useful for conservatives to get votes in a conservative cycle, this kind of page will disgust reasonable people. But it is a sad indictment on the community standard, and as an equivalent involving the left wing would not be tolerated, it is a double standard. Mr Abbott is still a few days from announcing a ministry. Sadly Sophie Mirabella seems to have missed out in her electorate. The media attacks on her have been very dirty. The expected winner of the seat of Indi is a conservative who has the support of Tony Windsor, another so called conservative who supported the ALP as an independent on many occasions over his entire career. So Mr Abbott's government has not begun yet, but the opposition will begin masturbating. 

Fires have claimed a few houses in NSW, and rage in California. The NSW fires have added poignancy, with some having been deliberately lit and with a thief having stolen a laptop from an open window of a damaged house. Another fire burns inside the heart of Obama who really wants to hit Syria with more than pins. One can only imagine what the pricks have done to Whitehouse maps of Syria, Obama wants to use real weapons. Only the world won't let him. Assad is in discussions to surrender chemical weapons. One hopes this happens and the history of those weapons is analysed to see how Saddam did it .. and with which Democrat's support.

Gillard forgetting who her friends used to be

Piers Akerman – Thursday, September 11, 2014 (8:02pm)

TICKLISH questions remain swirling around Julia Gillard following her appearance at the royal commission into trade union corruption. Not the least of which is the haste with which she sought to distance herself from the two witnesses who preceded her into the witness box on Wednesday and their remarks about her role in suggesting the establishment of a slush fund similar to the one she assisted former boyfriend Bruce Wilson set up in Western Australia — the Australian Workers Union Workplace Reform Association.

On September 11, 2001, 19 middle-class Islamists financed by a multi-millionaire murdered nearly 3000 men, women and children in the United States. Leftists have spent the subsequent 13 years complaining about climate change, Israel, sexism, racism, homophobia and the gap between rich and poor.


Tim Blair – Thursday, September 11, 2014 (3:59am)

The ABC commemorated Anzac Day this year with an attempted demolition of “five common Anzac Day myths”, including the devastating non-revelation that Gallipoli stretcher bearer John Simpson Kirkpatrick may have used “more than one donkey” to rescue injured soldiers.
Now the ABC marks the 100th anniversary of Australia’s first battle of World War I by claiming that Australian troops conducted a mass execution of German and New Guinea prisoners in 1914.
This claim is based on a solitary tape recording made in the 1960s by an alleged witness named Bob.
UPDATE. Even Mike Carlton, who basically has to be waterboarded before agreeing with me or the Telegraphrejectsthe ABC’s claims: 
Hate to say it, but this RN story is as dodgy as all get out. It “confirms” nothing. 


Tim Blair – Thursday, September 11, 2014 (2:51am)

It hasn’t been a great week for frightbat fact-checking. First, Anne Summers declared Mungo MacCallum deaddespite him being very much alive. And now Cankles McBabystopper is exposed as a research retard
Fairfax Media recently carried a column by Clementine Ford in which she describes her horror that the death in custody last month of young Aboriginal woman Julieka Dhu did not “cause even the vaguest ripple across mainstream Australian media”.
Admitting she and her editor had not heard about the death until almost a month after it occurred, Ms Ford asserted that the “most comprehensive reporting” of the circumstances of Ms Dhu on August 4 in Western Australia was on two independent websites.
Ms Ford, who found out about the death from a person on Twitter, said “this silence” showed a “shameful indictment” on Australia’s attitudes to Aborigines.
While there is no question that Ms Dhu’s death is tragic and raises serious questions about her treatment by authorities, Ms Ford is wrong to say that the mainstream media ignored the case.
In fact, The Australian and The Weekend Australian has led the investigation into Ms Dhu’s death, an investigation that uncovered her alleged mistreatment and provided the material for the two websites Ms Ford cites. 
The Australian ran pieces about Dhu’s death in Port Hedland on August 23August 25August 26August 30 andSeptember 9. Ford’s reaction is, as usual, lame.
UPDATE. Ford misses a lot of news, which she assumes is because it hasn’t been reported. Here she is in 2013, complaining about the lack of coverage in the case of Johanna “Jazzy-O” Martin’s murder, which Ford mistakenly claimed took place within weeks of the kidnapping and killing of Jill Meagher: 
I did not mention Martin, that other woman whose body was desecrated and discarded without thought. Because I didn’t know. Because the media, which includes me, perhaps doesn’t care enough about the murders, rapes and violations of women not like us to pay it the same kind of attention. 
This is the first response to Ford’s piece: 
Pretty poor research here, Jazzy O was killed in 2011, about a year before Jill Meagher. I remember it clearly because the story was well covered on the news and in the newspapers. 
UPDATE II. Irony: Ford complains about being called a “research retard” but in the same post claims I wrote that she “ignored The Australian‘s reporting on Miss Dhu” – which is not true. The question is, how much does Clementinewant cake?

A man called Bob

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:25pm)

The ABC notes an important anniversary:
One hundred years ago today, Australians took part in one of the first engagements of World War One, the Battle of Bitapaka in Papua New Guinea. 
And, being the ABC, it marks the occasion with its usual respect for the military and for credible, verifiable sources:
New claims have emerged about the execution of German and Papua New Guinean prisoners by Australian servicemen during Australia’s first WWI battle, which occurred on this day 100 years ago… 
For years, there have been rumours of executions by the Australians after the battle of Bitapaka, and now an old tape recording of a witness appears to confirm them.
The eye witness, an elder in the village of Kabakaul, said he saw the Australians come ashore, and he described the execution of two white men and a number of native police.
‘Then a big man of war said “fire” and they all died,’ said the man identified on the tape as Bob, speaking in the Tok Pisin language. ‘They shot all the men who were lined up on one side. Only one boy was alright, a young boy such as this, he ran away. So they all died and the trench they dug was full with dead bodies.’
The recording was made in the 1960s by a plantation owner Ian Purvis, who was living near Rabaul…
In all, six Australians are listed as being killed in the battle of Bitapaka on the 11th of September 1914… Officially, one German soldier and 30 native police are listed as being killed in the battle of Bitapaka.
Great sources.

Has Dan Andrews thrown away the election?

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:14pm)

Does Dan Andrews really want to make Labor seem the party that rips up contracts? That creates sovereign risk? That leaves key arterials clogged?
Go back. Wrong way:
DUMPING the East West Link would force motorists to endure decades of congestion, Premier Denis Napthine says.

Dr Napthine today fired back at Labor’s plan to reject the $6-8 billion road project if it wins the election… 

The Premier said he was “very confident” the government would win a looming Supreme Court case, in which inner Melbourne councils are arguing the planning process surrounding East West Link was unlawful.

Labor is understood to be using that court case as a reason to declare any road contract signed before the election as invalid…
Until today, Mr Andrews had said Labor would build the East West Link if it won the election and contracts were already signed.
This morning, he told 3AW that he had changed his mind… 
He said it was “not legally safe” for the government to sign a contract while there is a Supreme Court case looming against the project.

Bush was right, Obama was lethally wrong. Troops go back to Iraq

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (5:20pm)

George W Bush warned in 2007 that pulling out of Iraq would be deadly, and the US would be forced to go back in:
It would mean that we would be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.It would mean we allow terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean the increasing probability that US troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.
But Obama did pull out all US forces, against the warnings of his generals. He even boasted about it in the presidential debates:
No, but what I — what I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East.
The slaughter that followed has been ghastly:
And sure enough, as Bush predicted:
US President Barack Obama has authorised air strikes against Islamic State group targets inside Syria for the first time, pledging to destroy its fighters “wherever they exist”. 
In an address to the nation on Wednesday, Obama also announced an expansion of strikes in Iraq, saying he would be dispatching nearly 500 more US troops to the country to assist its besieged security forcesObama called on Congress to authorise a programme to train and arm rebels in Syria who are fighting both the Islamic State group and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Too little and far too late.
Just a month ago, Obama ridiculed the idea he’s now embraced, a year or two too late, of arming moderate Syrian rebels:

It’s always been a fantasy, this idea that we could provide some light arms or even more sophisticated arms to what was essentially an opposition made up of former doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth. 

John McCain attacks:
McCAIN: No, facts are stubborn things, Mr. Carney, and that is [the President’s] entire national security team, including the Secretary of State said he want to arm and train and equip these people and he made the unilateral decision to turn them down. The fact he didn’t a residual force in Iraq, overruled all of his military advisers, is the reason why we’re facing ISIS today. 

So the facts are stubborn things in history and people ought to know them. And now the president is saying basically that we are going to take certain actions, which I would favor, but to say that America is safer, and that the situation is very much like Yemen and Somalia shows me that the president really doesn’t have a grasp for how serious the threat of ISIS is.
CARNEY: Well, again, Senator, we’re going to have to agree to disagree. And I think on the question of the residual force, there was another player in that which was the Iraqi government. A, and B, it was the fulfillment of the previous administration’s withdrawal plan. And it was also the fulfillment of the president’s promise to withdraw from Iraq and not maintain a true presence, in perpetuity, which is pretty consistent with what the American people wanted and believed it was the right approach. 
McCAIN: Mr. Carney, you are again saying facts that are patently false. The fact is because [Senator] Lindsey Graham, [former Senator] Joe Lieberman and I, we were in Baghdad, they wanted a residual force. The president has never made a statement during that or after that he wanted a residual force left behind. The Iraqis were ready to go. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the number cascaded down to 3,500. That was not sufficient to do anything but to defend themselves. And you in your role as a spokesperson bragged about the fact that the last American combat troop had left Iraq. If we had left a residual force the situation would not be what it is today.  

Aboriginal children pay for this silence

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:53am)

COULD fear of seeming racist make us shut up about child abuse? Yes, and I have a lawyer’s warning to prove it.
Do not think a Rotherham could not happen here. Something like it has happened already to Aboriginal children.
In Rotherham, in England’s north, 1400 children as young as 11 were raped and trafficked by mainly Pakistani gangs. Just as shocking, as a formal report last month revealed, is that many in authority were too scared to speak out.
“Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to,” the report notes. But here, too, we have a culture of “political correctness” that stops our ears and mouths. We even have laws that stifle the debate we need if children are to be saved.
When I first wrote here about the Rotherham case I wanted to include a single sentence about linking problems in Aboriginal communities to Aboriginal culture. The paper’s lawyers had that sentence taken out, because such “a bare assertion can get us into trouble” under the Racial Discrimination Act, which frowns on such “offensive” statements.
True, we can still discuss these issues if we include lots of detail, without mistakes. Just last weekend The Australian revealed extensive evidence of horrific child sexual abuse in remote South Australian settlements. But the legal danger just helps to stifle one of the most important social questions facing us: is Aboriginal culture hurting too many children and women?

Shorten torpedoes our best defence

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:53am)

Greg Sheridan is spot on:
I fear Bill ­Shorten may just about have demagogued us out of one of the best options we have for providing for the security of this nation. 
Up until this week, Shorten had been a very responsible opposition leader on national security. But to so irresponsibly demonise the possibility that the Abbott government could consider buying submarines from Japan has done real damage to our national interests.
This is the reality that Shorten is ranting against:
Probably we could buy a fleet of subs from Japan for $20 billion whereas we would spend $40bn, or probably quite a bit more, to build the subs ourselves and we would certainly be building subs inferior to those of Japan. 
It is not absolutely clear that there would be that many fewer jobs for Australia with a Japanese sub. We would probably have twice as many subs, or have them in half the time, if we went with the Japanese option.

Letting some come, after all

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:10am)

The fact is that we’re one of the few muggins prepared to settle boat people, so the choice is between letting those at Manus Island rot in detention or forcing them home.
Or there’s Scott Morrison’s inevitable compromise - which risks sending a signal to the people smugglers:
HUNDREDS of asylum-seekers who arrived in the first six months of the Papua New Guinea ­resettlement deal, announced in the final days of the Rudd government, could return to Australia to live on temporary protection visas
Immigration Minister Scott Morrison ... [said he] remained “confident” of concluding resettlement talks with PNG, despite “difficult and frustrating problems” that have led the country’s cabinet to delay the proposal for months…
In what Labor called a “monumental backflip”, Mr Morrison said asylum-seekers who arrived between July 19 and December 31 last year might be allowed to live in Australia once Howard-era TPVs were reintroduced.
“For us, it is about outlining the space where we can have a discussion with the crossbenchers ... but the bottom line for the government is that TPVs must be restored,” Mr Morrison said. 
Unlike permanent visas, TPVs expired every three years, allowing the government to reconsider whether the refugees still needed protection.
A further compromise should be possible to secure the votes for the TPVs. It should be possible to agree that after, say, six years here with no possibility of return that a TPV becomes a permanent one. 

Would you rather the jihadists were here or Syria?

Andrew Bolt September 11 2014 (7:02am)

Many of us might be tempted to agree, were it not for the obligation we have to take them back:
Wissam Haddad, head of the al-Risalah Islamic Centre considered a hub of extremist preaching in Sydney, dismissed the prospect of an imminent terror attack. 
He said if the government was truly concerned about angry, young men attacking Australian targets, it would let Muslims who wanted to fight in Syria go there“The guys that are there don’t ever want to come back,” Mr Haddad told The Australian. He said many young men in his circle yearned to leave Australia permanently.
And again the implied threat, illustrating how multi-cultural societies risk having foreign conflicts spread to their own streets:
“Look at Australia’s foreign policy in regards to Iraq. You’re going to be angering a lot of people. It’s the government itself that are creating the problem.’’
And indeed:
The Australian has been told that, while authorities are unaware of extremists a bomb, ASIO and the AFP have identified a number of radicals with “settled intentions” to perpetrate terrorist acts in Australia. The plans are considered serious enough to justify raising the terror alert level from medium to high, meaning an attack is likely. 
Among those of concern are alleged Muslim extremists whose hopes of joining Islamic State, the terrorist army that has captured swathes of Syria and northern Iraq, slaughtering thousands, have been thwarted by ASIO, which recommended their passports be cancelled as part of a campaign to ground would-be foreign fighters.
The fact is, as counterterrorism academic Nick O’Brien points out, there are now too-many wanna-be jihadists for ASIO to properly monitor them all:
The reality is that to do a proper monitoring job of a person, you would have to follow them, see what they do and that would require at least two surveillance teams cause you’d have to work round the clock. Now this is absolutely impossible when you’re talking about these amount of numbers. So the only monitoring that they can do will be, I guess, things like social media and phones.  





















The deteriorating situation in Syria is rapidly spiraling out of control and creating a hell for Syrian Christians far worse anything that the mainstream US media is reporting, or our administration is acknowledging. The gangs of terrorists (for that is what they are, not ‘rebels’) are appropriating Christian-owned property by force, beating, torturing, and murdering Christians, and making any normal existence, for those who remain, impossible. Yet the Obama administration continues to support the ‘rebels’.
The Christian woman in the photograph is tied to a pillar in the Sheikh Maksoud neighborhood of Aleppo. She is one of the “criminals” arrested for unknown reasons by a new Islamist commission in what they call the “freed regions of Syria”. The paper at her feet says: “Those who don’t spit at this woman have no honor!”
It is a disgrace that our government continues to provide both moral and military support to these terrorists, in contravention of every convention of human rights and the rules of war. This is particularly agregious in light of our knowledge that many of these fighters are aligned with al Qaeda, our openly proclaimed enemy, and one of the organizations on our State Department list of terrorist organizations.

In Memoriam - September 11 2001

Today we reflect on the horrible and tragic events that unfolded in the heart of America on the 11th of September 2001. 

Today we remember the lives of those lost, and admire the brave, courageous and selfless efforts of all emergency services personnel who put their lives on the line that day to save others. Some of those didn't return home. 

Today, we Honour America's Bravest.

Never Forget...

'll be writing about the travesty of Obama's abdication of US power to Russia, and his betrayal of Israel for Friday's paper. In the meantime, my friend Lee Smith got it right. 
Clearly the Sept. 11 attacks had no impact on Obama. He was too busy reading the New York Times profile on his terrorist buddy Bill Ayres, which was published that day, to notice that America was under attack.

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon


"And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him."
Mark 3:13

Here was sovereignty. Impatient spirits may fret and fume, because they are not called to the highest places in the ministry; but reader be it thine to rejoice that Jesus calleth whom he wills. If he shall leave me to be a doorkeeper in his house, I will cheerfully bless him for his grace in permitting me to do anything in his service. The call of Christ's servants comes from above. Jesus stands on the mountain, evermore above the world in holiness, earnestness, love and power. Those whom he calls must go up the mountain to him, they must seek to rise to his level by living in constant communion with him. They may not be able to mount to classic honours, or attain scholastic eminence, but they must like Moses go up into the mount of God and have familiar intercourse with the unseen God, or they will never be fitted to proclaim the gospel of peace. Jesus went apart to hold high fellowship with the Father, and we must enter into the same divine companionship if we would bless our fellowmen. No wonder that the apostles were clothed with power when they came down fresh from the mountain where Jesus was. This morning we must endeavour to ascend the mount of communion, that there we may be ordained to the lifework for which we are set apart. Let us not see the face of man today till we have seen Jesus. Time spent with him is laid out at blessed interest. We too shall cast out devils and work wonders if we go down into the world girded with that divine energy which Christ alone can give. It is of no use going to the Lord's battle till we are armed with heavenly weapons. We must see Jesus, this is essential. At the mercy-seat we will linger till he shall manifest himself unto us as he doth not unto the world, and until we can truthfully say, "We were with him in the Holy Mount."


"Evening wolves."
Habakkuk 1:8
While preparing the present volume, this particular expression recurred to me so frequently, that in order to be rid of its constant importunity I determined to give a page to it. The evening wolf, infuriated by a day of hunger, was fiercer and more ravenous than he would have been in the morning. May not the furious creature represent our doubts and fears after a day of distraction of mind, losses in business, and perhaps ungenerous tauntings from our fellow men? How our thoughts howl in our ears, "Where is now thy God?" How voracious and greedy they are, swallowing up all suggestions of comfort, and remaining as hungry as before. Great Shepherd, slay these evening wolves, and bid thy sheep lie down in green pastures, undisturbed by insatiable unbelief. How like are the fiends of hell to evening wolves, for when the flock of Christ are in a cloudy and dark day, and their sun seems going down, they hasten to tear and to devour. They will scarcely attack the Christian in the daylight of faith, but in the gloom of soul conflict they fall upon him. O thou who hast laid down thy life for the sheep, preserve them from the fangs of the wolf.
False teachers who craftily and industriously hunt for the precious life, devouring men by their false-hoods, are as dangerous and detestable as evening wolves. Darkness is their element, deceit is their character, destruction is their end. We are most in danger from them when they wear the sheep's skin. Blessed is he who is kept from them, for thousands are made the prey of grievous wolves that enter within the fold of the church.
What a wonder of grace it is when fierce persecutors are converted, for then the wolf dwells with the lamb, and men of cruel ungovernable dispositions become gentle and teachable. O Lord, convert many such: for such we will pray tonight.

Today's Old Testament reading: Proverbs 8-9

Wisdom's Call

Does not wisdom call out?
Does not understanding raise her voice?
2 At the highest point along the way,
where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3 beside the gate leading into the city,
at the entrance, she cries aloud:
4 "To you, O people, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
5 You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.
Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say;
I open my lips to speak what is right.
7 My mouth speaks what is true,
for my lips detest wickedness.
8 All the words of my mouth are just;
none of them is crooked or perverse.
9 To the discerning all of them are right;
they are upright to those who have found knowledge.
10 Choose my instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her....

Today's New Testament reading: 2 Corinthians 3

1 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. 3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
4 Such confidence we have through Christ before God. 5 Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant-not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life....
