Mitt's NOT Running

Mitt Romney announced on Friday January 30, 2015 that he's not running for president in 2016 for a third time.  I'm very thankful that's so.  He ran a sorry campaign in 2012 and he gave that race away.  He's a RINO.  He even praised Jonathon Gruber, the architect of Obamacare, for the hours and hours of work he did writing Romneycare.  It's amazing the corrupting power of politics.  Here's a man who knows how to run a business and knows what fuels the economy.  Consequently, he's a socialist in his thinking to support government-run healthcare such as Romneycare.  No sane businessman would be in support of a government-run healthcare system such as Obamacare nor Romneycare unless he's part of the government elite.  Our country is better off without him running

The Generations Preceding the Birth of Jesus Christ

Matthew 1 Commentary

Matthew 1:1-17

The book of Matthew starts with the account of the generations that preceded the birth of Jesus Christ.  Matthew is the beginning of the four gospels of the New Testament.  Between the last book of the Old Testament, which is Malachi and the first book of the New Testament, there is a period of 400 years of silence.  During that time God didn't speak through his prophets during that time.  There were major events going on through that time.  The Roman Empire had taken over Jerusalem through Pompey.  When Jesus was born, Jerusalem was under Roman rule.  In Matthew 1:17, it mentions the number of generations between Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the carrying away into Babylon fourteen generations and from the carrying away into Babylon until the birth of Christ was fourteen generations.  To read more about Matthew 1, click on the two links to read about this great chapter.
