The Battered Bride (2-23-09)

The battered bride is an impossibility in Christ. Yet I have heard many who claim to be His bride talk as though He is the cause of their suffering. Recently I was tempted myself to go down this thoughtless road.

As you are aware I was getting into a position to fund the clients through the Phase One website. This is my intention and will be accomplished. I have goals but not without hostile opposition. The FBI just executed a warrant which I have not seen or been informed of that was used to steal the Phase One website. Does this hinder my work? Absolutely. Are they in the belief they are doing right? Probably though many agents have long since sold their soul to the devil. This event came to me with the news that my sister was given a death sentence of no more than 5 years with bone cancer. Throw on top of this the fear and phobias of those I love and it was easy to ask God if His promises are true or if He knows what He is doing. There are harsh times and chastisement in every love relationship but there is not abuse and battering. Our Groom is a lover and a giver. Though suffering may come our way it is not from our lovers hand. Will we know our lover and remember His loving caress? If He doesn’t lift His hand quickly to deliver us will we doubt His affection?

I was once given sound advice not to doubt in the darkness what I had seen in the light. Modifying this advice a little I would say don’t doubt the lover you know when He appears distant. When I went to strengthen myself when all hell broke loose and seemed to be prevailing I looked to my lover, my Groom. His attributes are beyond searching out but very reassuring. Read the song of Solomon if you don’t remember the thoughts of lovers. I’ve spent a little time on this bride theme in hopes to encourage you to visualize your standing at law, and in God’s heart so you’ll find the confidence to make it to your certain victory. Dorean has taken you through a path of suffering and the world is in dire straights but we have a safe harbor, a sure refuge, high tower, and most of all an intimate bosom of love to hide and protect us. Listen to this heartbeat even though troubles fill your eyes and you will know you are well loved.

Has any of you guys heard this?

AIG bailout --- ?

Remember when this economic crisis hit, and Congress let Bear Sterns go
under, pushed a bunch of forced marriages between banks, etc.?

Then they bailed out AIG. At the time, I thought: "That's strange. What
does an insurance company have to do with this crisis?"

I think I just found the answer. Among other things, AIG INSURES THE

No wonder they got bailed out right away!

"To hell with the people, let's protect our future", said all our Senators
and Congressmen... Nice to see where their loyalties lie! (I'm from the
government and I'm here to help you!)

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The name "Freedom Tower" has been dropped for the skyscraper under construction in New York to replace the World Trade Center towers destroyed in the September 11 attacks, but some locals are not happy about it.

Designed amid much fanfare to symbolize the city's revival after the attacks in 2001, the tower, which will be New York's tallest building, has been beset by delays and its developer has struggled to attract tenants, due partly to fears it could be targeted for another attack.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which is building the 1,776-foot (541-meter) skyscraper, has admitted even its own workers do not want to return to the site where nearly 3,000 people were killed.

On Thursday, it announced it planned to refer to the building by its address -- One World Trade Center -- because that was easiest for people to identify with.

"As we market the building, we will ensure that the building is presented in the best possible way," Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia told reporters on Thursday.

The plan was savaged by local tabloids. "Free Dumb Tower," was the New York Post's reaction, while the Daily News' front-page headline was: "No More Freedom."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Friday he was disappointed.

"I would like to see it stay the Freedom Tower but it's their building and they don't need me dumping on them," Bloomberg said on his radio show.

"If they could rent the whole thing by changing the name, then they should do that," Bloomberg said, adding the most important part of the rebuilding was a planned memorial.

"We're not going to forget what happened down there and in the end the real thing that will tell the story and memorialize and hopefully give us a lesson that this should never happen again is the World Trade Center Memorial," Bloomberg said.

George Pataki, who was New York's governor at the time of the attacks, told the Daily News the name Freedom Tower was "symbolic of our commitment to rise above the attacks of September 11." He added the addresses 1 and 2 World Trade Center should never be used again since they were the names of the twin towers.

"One World Trade Center"?? LOL!! These murderous Illuminati bastards are so arrogant they want to put their signature on the buildings that will relplace the ones they knocked down.

Home bargains galore

In total, prices have plunged 29.1% nationally since they peaked during the second quarter of 2006, but that of course doesn't figure in individual cities, where prices are more varied. Dallas is the least affected at 4.9%, and Phoenix lost the most, at 48.5% from its peak. All 20 index cities were in negative territory, but the biggest losers are Las Vegas, Miami, Phoenix, San Francisco, and San Diego -- each losing more than 40%. The bad, and good, news is that the rate of decline has picked up recently. As Mike Larson, a real estate analyst with Weiss Research says, ""Arguably, that's just what we need to drive up sales activity and reduce inventory."

Big boys ready to pounce

Morgan Stanley is one of several early bird institutional investors getting ready to snap up real estate bargains -- it's close to raising $6 billion for a new global property fund: the Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VII Global. "I think these new real estate funds will look for distressed opportunities and they think they can bargain with developers who mismanage the balance sheets or have liquidity issues," said Laure Wang, managing director of Asia Alternatives, a private equity fund of funds. According to Paul Vosper, chief operating officer for real estate at Morgan Stanley's Alternative Investment Partners unit, the downturn in global property markets will create a period of strong returns.
