In 2008, when Obama first began running in the presidential primaries, and I began to search and try and find out just where he was coming from, it quickly became apparent to me that he was anti-God, anti-America, anti-morals, anti-life, anti-Biblical principles, anti-Constitution and anti-everything that is decent, godly, and praiseworthy. As the months went by, and as he won the election, and as he was sworn in office, and as we began to see more and more clearly what he stood for and what his governing style would be, I became increasingly concerned and began to pray for America, the Beautiful, praying that God would intervene and have mercy on the righteous people of the land.

That’s when God began to speak to me. He told me clearly one day, as I was walking in the streets of the huge metropolis where I live, that He was separating His sheep from the goats, and that Obama was the dividing line — the gulf, so to speak –, that He was going to use him to do this, so that, with Obama, people would be forced to take sides like never before, to choose and determine what side they’d be on, the side of life or death, the side of good or evil, the side of godliness or wickedness, the side of Christ or the Antichrist, the side of light or darkness, the side of freedom or slavery, the side of the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of this world (or of the New World Order, to be more specific). And once they made that choice, this would then pretty much define their position for the final conflict, the final showdown between the forces of good and the forces of evil, leading them sometime in the near future to either resist the coming Antichrist, suffer persecution, and eventually be delivered by our faithful Savior who will one day come to rescue us from this evil age, or to comply and accept the Illuminati agenda, and eventually take the Mark of the Beast, avoid persecution and enjoy the perks afforded by the establishment for a short season, only to soon be left to face the wrath of Almighty God, be defeated by the army of the Lord of Hosts, and be doomed forever to suffer the second death, followed by an eternity of weeping and gnashing of teeth, an eternity of doom in a place where the worm never dies and the fire is never quenched.

I honestly believe that, much like Nebuchadnezzar — think Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego versus the whole Babylonian court, Jeremiah and Baruch standing alone versus all of Judah’s false prophets –, Barack Obama has been endowed by our creator with the power of division, a power so great and so mighty that no one can escape taking sides.

The Lord gave some people (especially I must say some Black Christians, who in 2008 overwhelmingly voted for and sided with Obama) a chance this past election to switch sides, to cross the line and escape the coming divine judgment so to speak, and I know many a people who by the grace of God have been blessed with renewed discernment to do so. These I commend and praise the Lord for.

It is easy to be swayed by emotion when the race card is drawn, and sometimes one might feel tugged at the heart by the strings of past hurts, ethnical wounds, and collective memories of the harshness and shame of several decades of slavery in America. Even being a Christian, at times the flesh might prevail. But this past election, four years into Obama’s ever unfolding and highly successful plan to destroy America, these same Christians had NO excuse. Yet many of them chose to ignore the voice of the Holy Spirit, that is, if they ever had the Holy Spirit to begin with. I honestly question these people’s salvation, for, if the Spirit that dwells in me dwells in them also, would we not be hearing and seeing the same Words by the same Father?

For that reason I beseech you, my friend, my brother and sister in Christ, who, by reasons unbeknownst to me, insist on maintaining your support for Obama, his policies and administration, heed the voice of the Spirit today! Do not delay, for the time might be running out for those who have yet to cross that line and jump into the Ark of truth!

There is safety in truth! We might face persecution, imprisonment, and death by the sword, for the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and the apostle John themselves warned us it would be so, but we will be delivered in due time. “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” We will NEVER bow down to this wicked administration or support it in any way, shape or form. In the words of Martin Luther, “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”

I am sure we all have heard about this already, but I found this video shocking to watch, especially with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star playing in the background.

A world court system (The International Criminal Tribunal) was established through Bill Clinton’s initiative in 1997. This is the same court that charged Slobodan Milosevic, the former president of Serbia and Yugoslavia,  with crimes against humanity, issued a warrant for the arrest of the president of Sudan, Omar Al-Bashir, in March of this year, and now wants to charge US soldiers  (and by implication its president) with crimes against humanity in Afghanistan.

This video touches on the relevant subject of the establishment of a One World Government.

To say that this is disturbing would be a VAST understatement!

These are words that prick the heart: “I’ll put you (Jesus) in front of me so everybody can see my love. This (Jesus) is my love.”

 

I must confess that I am not there yet. I know I’m not. I’d be lying if I said I was. Yet, ” Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

Would you believe that after Climategate, they still come up with these hypocritical ads? It is truly unbelievable! “We could have stopped catastrophic climate change…” (clue the violins). WHAT CATASTROPHIC CLIMATE CHANGE? DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S BEEN PROVEN THAT THE WHOLE THING HAS BEEN A SHAM ALL ALONG??? Ahhhhhggggg!!!!!!

The environmental activism group Greenpeace, no stranger to controversy, is at it again. In conjunction with the start of the U.N Climate Change Conference in Denmark, the group has teamed up withTckTckTck to plaster the Copenhagen airport with advertisements featuring drastically altered images of famous world leaders participating in the summit. Though some industry observers have labeled the campaign”lame” and “dour,” the group says the reaction to the ads thus far has been “phenomenal.”

Barack Obama Greenpeace ad

The aforementioned posters feature the faces of U.S. President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, just to name a few, as they would possibly look in 2020. Next to each leader’s image is an apology from the future that reads, “I’m sorry. We could have stopped catastrophic climate change… We didn’t.” Toby Cotton, the writer of the ads, said his intention was to make “world leaders think twice about the consequences of their action or inaction now.”

When asked by Yahoo News! if the ads have generated any reaction from the various world leaders or their camps, a Washington, D.C.-based Greenpeace spokesperson said, “We look forward to the reactions of heads of state as they arrive,” adding that the ads have been “quite popular” with the general public so far.

This is an almost unbelievable, yet true account of what happened in a Houston bound airplane on Nov. 17th, and how political correctness taken to an unreasonable extreme can bring about situations that are just so utterly unthinkable, such as a book store honoring the man who flew one the planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11. Do not believe me? Read on:

Dry run for another 9/11, Muslims in America honoring their guy who drove the airplane into the WTC towers on 9/11.

A Muslim book store in Houston, Texas closed on 9/11 in order to celebrate one of the hijackers that drove an airplane into the World Trade Center towers. Harwin Drive is a street in southwest Houston lined with shops that sell right off the boat Chinese junk and knock-offs. Muslims run the majority of shops. A Houston resident said, “Today I went to the Harwin Central Mall to pick up some crystals. The very first store that you come to when you walk from the lobby of the building into the shopping area had this sign posted on their door. It read, “We are closed today September 11, 2009 in order to commemorate Imam Ali.” I couldn’t stay in the building it made me so sick.

Imam Ali piloted one of the planes into the World Trade Towers on 9/11/01. Thus, we feature Muslim-Americans that celebrate his actions annually while we mourn our 3,000 dead at the same time.

This story occurred on November 17, 2009 as reported by FOX NEWS. Below, you may read the story from the man who reported it as an eyewitness:

“One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father,” said Tedd Patruna. “On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a Air Tran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox.”

Here is what actually happened.

“I was in 1st class coming home,” Patruna said. “Eleven Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. Two sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.

“The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, two younger Muslims, one in the back, isle, and one in front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before, and were very loud about it. They are only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men said, “Shut up infidel dog!” She tried to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all 11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say “I got your back.” I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm and said, “You WILL go sit down or you WILL be thrown from this plane!” As I “led” him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, “You WILL do the same!” He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go.

The pilots taxied the plane back to the terminal.

“As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and three TSA agents and four police officers entered. My new Texan friend and I were told to cease and desist for they had this under control. I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane. They then unloaded their luggage.

“We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happened, when suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic. The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston. The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent “We and our crew will not fly this plane!” After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. Five minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on.

“Again…..this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked “What the hell is going on?” I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said “I’m getting off this plane”. The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. I said, “I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door, or I’m going through that door with you under my arm!! But I am going through that door!!” And I heard a voice behind me say “so am I”. Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within two minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had five hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6 pm. I got here at 12:30 am.”

Look up the date. Flight 297 Atlanta to Houston.

“If this wasn’t a dry run, I don’t know what one is,” said Petruna. “The terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it. I’m telling this to you because I want you to know….The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes.”

As we import more and more Muslims into America, they will congeal into a powerful political, religious, linguistic, cultural and balkanized force. They repeat the same in every country they colonize.

We can expect those suicide bombers from Iraq and Afghanistan to morph into immigrant-citizens or children born of immigrants to begin blowing up malls, theaters and sports contests in the United States. It’s only a matter of time. It’s already happening with such examples as the “Fort Dix Six, Fort Hood’s Major Nidal Hasan, American born Muslim Najibullah Zazi in Denver last month, and a half dozen others from New York to Dallas, Texas.

“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of it continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities and languages.” President Teddy Roosevelt, 1908

Unfortunately, we’re doing it to ourselves. Apathy + tolerance= dying virtues of the American civilization.

A refreshing article by a Christian brother making a tribute to all conservative, real women in America.

I was in Texas performing at a tea party rally (singer/songwriter of the American Tea Party Anthem). While waiting for my wife, I wandered into the hotel pub. It was Lady’s Night. A cowboy practically had a line of women waiting to dance with him. He held them firm, but gentle. He confidently lead and they gleefully followed. Each knowing she was in good hands. I, along with others, by the looks on their faces, thoroughly enjoyed watching him dance with the women. Why did we enjoy it? It represented the way men should be and how women want them to be. Despite what the radical feminists say, women want men to be strong and confident without being jerks. It is called Biology.

Is chivalry dead? Have we conservative men allowed political correctness to prevent us from treating women the way we instinctively know we should? When my three brothers and I started dating, my dad instructed us. “You take good care and return her home the way you found her.” Following dad’s instruction made us feel good about ourselves. We felt like men.

Sarah Palin and son Trig

Unfortunately, it appears even some on our side (conservatives) have bought into the media’s “she is not too bright” portrayal of Palin. When Obama says we have 57 states and other faux pas, his sycophant media circle the wagons around him by saying he is tired or simply misspoke. Meanwhile, every word out of Palin’s mouth is viewed from the template that she is stupid. Who amongst us could withstand such harsh scrutiny.

Well, I am standing up for my awesome conservative sister, Gov. Palin. She has the right stuff to get our country back on track. I love how Palin boldly, without apology, challenges the concept of government run health care, the global warming/climate change scam and her desire to drill for oil to make us energy independent. Talk about backbone. Could Sarah Palin be the reincarnation of John Wayne and Ronald Reagan? No, I do not believe in reincarnation; just having a little fun. My point is despite what the snobby elites, conservative and liberal, think, Sarah Palin is a powerful force to be reckoned with and is great for America.

We the people are so sick of mamby pamsy “middle of the road speak” focus group tested candidates. “Don’t say this because you will offend this crowd and don’t say that because you will offend the other.” For crying out loud, just say what you mean and mean what you say. Show us voters who you are. These are the kind of candidates we voters are longing and tea partying for. And this is why Sarah “what you see is what you get” Palin is a rock star!

I believe strong women inspire men to be strong. They are not offended when we open the door for them, carry their heavy packages and mind our conversation around them. Or has such behavior from men become too “Andy and Mayberry” for our secular progressive crude culture? Trust me, I am not a prude, but radial feminists have diminished women’s power in our society. I was raised a real man treats women with a level of respect. Nobody is allowed to “dis” your momma, wife or your sister.

Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air; a woman using the God given power of her femininity to be a mom, a wife and govern a state. Awesome. I would be honored to say, “Yes, Madam President.”

Not only is the Left committed to keeping women in their place, but blacks as well; all the while claiming to desire progress and liberation for both. Blacks who achieve success without liberal programs and intervention are beaten down and dragged back to the Left’s government dependency plantation. Such uppity independent blacks are strapped in a chair, deprived bathroom privileges and shown videos 24/7 of Sharpton, Jackson and hypocritical rich America hating rappers. The deprogramming message, “America sucks! Racist! Sexist! Homophobic! Liberal democrats are your saviors!”

The Left is equally intolerant of independent thought coming from women. The Left deceptively call their pro abortion a pro choice movement. If choice is their issue, why are radical feminists so offended when a woman chooses not to have an abortion? They have a weird anti male (particularly white male) and family agenda. Outrageously, a feminist leader said “all sex is rape.” These angry bitter women have a distorted view of the world.

Then along comes Sarah Palin; happily married, a happy mom and effective governor. Feminists should regard Sarah Palin as their hero; a shining example of women’s liberation enjoying success in both words, family and career. But instead, the Left seeks to destroy her. Palin is too happy, too good, too pretty, too effective, and most intolerable, too powerful.

I wish to encourage my fellow conservative men to display a little John Wayne type testosterone and defend our feisty conservative women folks. As I am a conservative singer/songwriter, I have penned, performed and recorded a song honoring conservative women titled, “Our Girls.” Along with nationally known women like Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingram, Michelle Malkin, my song is a tribute to all my patriot sisters that are fighting for the cause of freedom, liberty and conservative principles. Please give “Our Girls” a listen. I promise, it will make you smile.


I posted a link to this video in a response to some comments on another recent post called “Is Atheism a religion or a fraud?” When I watched it again, I just had to post it here also, as this song is just so beautiful, and so powerful, and I think Carman really expressed so accurately that there is in fact a God, a statement that to us, Christians, is a given, a no brainer, yet to so many out there seems so utterly unacceptable.

Know this, my friend, whoever you are who consider yourself an Atheist, I love you, and I am praying for you. God has placed a burden in my heart for your souls, and He will be manifesting Himself to you in the days to come, as He answers the prayers of His people.

These are the lyrics to Carman’s song:

93 million miles from the blistering surface of the sun hangs the planet earth. A rotating sphere perfectly suspended in the center of the universe. The ultimate creation from an infinite mind. An unbelievably intricate complex design. A supernatural testimony, an irrefutable sign that there is a God.

The size, position and angle of the earth is a scientific phenomenon to see. A few degrees closer to the sun we’d disintegrate, a few degrees further we’d freeze. The axis of the earth is titled at a perfect 23 degree angle and it’s no mistake that it is. This allows equal global distribution to the rays of the sun making it possible for the food chain to exist.

Or take for example the combination of nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere we breathe every day. It just happens to be the exact mix that life needs to prosper, it doesn’t happen on any other planet that way.

You see, the Bible says the invisible things of God are seen through His creation, to believe this is not hair. If there’s a design, there’s a designer, if there’s a plan, there’s a planner and if there’s a miracle, there is a God.

CHORUS:
There is a hope, there is a light
There is an answer to all answers
There is a flame that burns in the night
And I know, I know, I know there is a God

The Scripture says the heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim the work of His hands. If we allow our minds to drink in all the truth that surrounds the truth that just surrounds us, creation itself with help us understand.

Did you know the moon controls the tides, it’s the maid that cleans the oceans. Even the waves don’t crash the shores in vain. The tides drag impurities from the depths of the sea, it’s nature’s constraint recycling chain.

It simply boggles the mind to think that the stars will rotate with such exact precision that it’s true. That the atomic clock with an error factor of less than three seconds per millennium is set by the way we move.

Though they silently orbit, the sun, the moon, the stars are like celestial evangelists above. Who circle the earth every 24 hours shouting in every languages that there is a God. Atheism is the wedge under the foundation of our faith, trying to topple our relationship with Christ. When the fool said in his heart, there is no God, he rejects the truth God painted on the canvas of the night. Atheism has never created an artistic masterpiece, never healed a fatal disease or calmed a fear. Atheism has never still given answers to our existence, peace to a troubled mind or even dried a tear.

For it’s God who created heaven and earth and flung the stars in space and breathed in the handful of dirt and it became a man. It’s God who sits on the circle of the earth and measures the mountains in a scale, and holds the seven seas in the palm of His hand. It’s God who sent His only begotten Son to the cross of Calvary to save our souls from Hell and the grave. It’s God who creates, God who delivers, God who heals and who is worthy of a thunderous ovation of praise.

CHORUS (2x)

There is a God, there is a God
And I know, I know, I know there is a God

I am so glad that I watched this video from “Voice of the Martyrs”! Looking at the beautiful faces of these dear brothers and sisters, and listening to everything they have had to endure for the sake of truth, makes me feel ashamed of my comfortable life, and even more so of any complaint I might ever have uttered. Pray for these beloved brethren, pray fervently for them to receive relief, deliverance, and grace from the Father.

This is amazing news. Apparently this case will finally go to trial on Jan 26. Let’s thank God, and pray for Judge Carter (for his safety and that of his family especially), as he has taken a very bold stance in refusing all of Obama’s motions to dismiss the case. I know Pr. Manning must be jubilant, and I also know that God has heard his many prayers for this to happen.

This video is very short, and the images speak for themselves. We need to be praying about this.

Coach Dave Daubenmire is one of my favorite no-nonsense writers. He hits the nail in the head when he says that Science is for sale. The whole Global Warming hoax is ALL about money, and restructuring the whole world to accommodate the New World Order, of course.

A very good read.

Atheism is the established religion in America. Humanism, Environmentalism, Darwinism, Materialism, and Global Warming are examples of its denominations. It is all fake, made up. Atheists don’t believe in no god, but rather, that they are god. Atheists believe man is the final judge. That is why they flock to government positions. Government “officials” are the Bishops in this man-made religion. Money is their communion wafer.

Government establishment requires three things: Mandatory membership, mandatory citizen support through taxation, and membership in order to hold public office. Government schools are religious schools. They are not “public” schools. Eighty-five percent of Americans self-identify as Christians. If the schools were “public” they would teach Christian values, instead, they teach Atheism.

We all knew the whole-global warming thing was a sham. Unless you were enthralled with the pencil-necks that are masquerading as intelligentsia in America today, you knew something was fishy. In fact, out here in the heartland it has been something of a joke for quite sometime.

“Must be that global warming; somebody call Al Gore,” I have heard common folk joke about the unusually cool summer we had in Ohio. (Can you believe how close we were to having that fraud elected President? He should be sharing a cell with Bernie Madoff.) Anybody with half-a brain tied behind their backs knew something stunk about the whole deal.

Now that Climategate has been exposed I guess it is safe to drive my car, heat my house, and cling to my Bible and light bulbs. Think of the carnage this lie has left…can you say Detroit?

I was part of the first “Earth Day” back in my high school daze. I think the big issue then was mercury pollution in Lake Erie. I did a project on it in high school Biology and, if I remember correctly, I fudged the facts a bit to make the crisis seem worse. I knew it wouldn’t be “peer reviewed” because most of my peers were chasing girls. Mr. Sherwood gave me an “A”.

Today “The Environment” is big business. Look at this government sponsored website pushing the religion of Earth Worship. That is all environmental movement has become; government sponsored religion with scientists as the high priests supported by “research grants.”

I trust very little that ends with the suffix “ism.” Ism is defined as “Doctrine; theory; system of principles;” Darwinism, environmentalism, liberalism, communism, socialism…all sets of beliefs that are used to indoctrinate others. Here is a list of 234 isms. Take a good look at them and ask yourself how many of these “theories” are taught as facts.

I say that my favorite “ism”, Creationism is just as credible as Darwinism, but try getting that into the curriculum at your local government school. “Creationism is not science” the peer-reviewed acolytes of atheism will howl. ALL isms are unproven…that is why they call them theories. A theory is not fact; it is an hypothesis, an educated guess. (I learned that while doing my mercury project for Earth Day in 1970.)

You gotta hand it to the Atheists, though. They love to research specific theories and call it “science.” That is how the whole environmental movement has been sold to the public. We have been taught that “science” is never wrong, and that “scientists” are never biased. Wikipedia declares that environmentalism is “a broad philosophy and social movement regarding concerns for environmental conservation.” Hmmm. Environmentalism is a philosophy “a set of ideas or beliefs relating to a particular field or activity; an underlying theory.” ( Sort of like Capitalism.)

Hence, environmentalism becomes a “science” only because scientists study it. Creationism isn’t because they don’t; At least not “real” scientists. The only real scientist is a peer reviewed one. And what is a peer? Why a peer is anyone who believes in a particular “ism” as deeply as you do. “Peer review” is nothing more than a pat on the back from those who share your deeply held religious beliefs. You see, if you deny global warming then you are not a peer. Only those scientists who agree are credible “peers”. That is how we get “junk science.” Look at this website.

Theories are neither good nor bad. They are merely a starting point for an idea. The job of “Science” should be to study the theories, not promote them. If global warming and her sibling macro-evolution (origins) were proven they would no longer be ‘theories.” Why don’t “scientists” promote the theory of gravity? They don’t have to because truth speaks for itself.

A popular line used by football coaches is “Statistics lie and liars use statistics.” Statistics can be the silver lining and explain why the loss wasn’t so bad. I remember having this conversation a time or two.

“We rushed for more yards, passed for more yards, and had fewer turnovers…how did we lose?”

“They scored more points,” one of my assistants would say.

Numbers never tell the whole story, only part of it. Figures don’t lie, but liars can figure; especially when money is attached. Your tax dollars fill the offering plates of Atheistic science. Read Genesis. Science was God’s idea.

Man-made global warming is a sham. Billions of dollars have been appropriated to the advancement of this lie. Much of the scientific community is dependant on government funding of the research that they do. Create a “crisis” and money to study it will follow. Everyone is “going green.” The American way of life is being forever altered based on junk, politicized science. The world is not flat, no matter what statistics they produce to “prove” otherwise.

Look, my friends. To many of these “experts” their science IS their religion. They are scientific evangelists using their “research” to promote their own system of beliefs. Instead of getting money out of politics, perhaps it is time that we got politics, and the money that follows it, out of science. Global warming is the best science that money can buy.

Let me produce some scientific evidence. According to one study 35% of all scientists do not believe in God with 41% of all biologists (those who study the environment) being the most agnostic. Worse yet, another study shows that 87% of scientists believe man has evolved over time (only 31% of moms and pops agree), 84% believe global warming is man made, (only 49% of common folk concur), and 93% of scientists feel the government should fund research.

Therefore, using the Scientific Method, evidence leads me to support the theory that Atheism is the leading religion among scientists and that they believe that the government should pay for them to practice it. In other words, they are against the separation of religion and state as long as it is their religion that is being supported. Calling “Atheism” science does not make it so.

Am I the only one who wonders what happened to common sense? Do you want to know why so many “experts” seem so lacking in it? “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” Psalm 14:1. Educated fools.

“I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” I John 2:21-11. How can we believe a scientist that denies the Truth?

The academic community, the Federal Government, and the media are the anti-Christ trinity. The government declares God illegal, while the scientific community declares Him dead, and the media serve as the pall bearers. Without the Truth of God, government, and her evangelists in academia, determine the truth; replace it with a scientific gospel, while the media record the epistles of their church-paid apostles.

Now the Lord is that Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. What is the opposite of liberty? Remove the Spirit of the Lord and you get toranny. Atheism leads to bondage. Jesus brings freedom.

I was discussing this with a bunch of public-school seniors the other day. They have become convinced that science is fact and faith is fables. That is what we teach them, you know. We put them into indoctrination centers where we teach them that theories such as Darwinism, Environmentalism, Globalism, and Humanism, are “scientific facts.” (Settled science Rev. Al Gore calls it.)

To counter that, some families place their children in Sunday school for an hour a week where they are taught “Bible Stories.” Let’s see. Science teaches “facts” while religion teaches “stories.” Which one do you think they will believe?

“What year is it, my friend?” I sarcastically asked one of the arrogant seniors?
“Huh? 2009…why?” He snarled back.
“Yeah…2009 years from what?” I cast out the bait.
“A.D. The birth of Jesus” He squirmed.

“That’s right, Pal. It is 2009 everywhere you go in the world. You know why? Jesus was a real guy. The entire world marks time from His birth. King David was real. So was Daniel, and Moses, and Noah. My faith is not a theory because it has a history. Christianity connects me to Adam. Science connects you to an ape.”

I wonder if we would be in the mess we are in if the government funded Creation-science research? I bet a bunch of those “scientists” would become “believers” if they were paid to prove it.

Follow the money. Science is for sale. Pass the offering plate.

The Bible declares in1 Thess 5:1-9, “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober…”

Also in 1 Peter 5:8-9, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith…”

Yet these fools think it is so cool to get drunk in the Lord! They are not in the light, they are in darkness, and the end result will be that the Day of the Lord will come upon them as a thief in the night, and they will not be able to escape God’s wrath unless they repent before that great and dreadful Day… Not only that, but they will also be unable to resist the enemy when he comes to devour them. Have you ever seen a drunk man resist anything? You can pretty much do whatever you want with him, take him wherever you want him to go, and he will go along, unresistant.

This video looks fairly old, so we can see that this drunken foolishness in church is not really new. I just now remembered a movie by Jackie Chan in which he plays a drunken kung fu master. So we see that even the Eastern devils apparently use this old trick to take control of their subjects. I wish I never had to set eyes on such foolishness from so-called servants of God. It’s embarassing, and so sad…

Check out the lyrics of this song, as it illustrates these people’s distorted view of the Holy Spirit and God’s glory:

THE NEW WINO DRINKING SONG


Now I laugh like an idiot and bark like a dog;
if I don’t sober up I’ll likely hop like a frog. I’ll crow like a rooster, ’til the break of day, cause the holy Ghost is movin’ and I can’t stay away.

Now I roar like a lioness who’s on the prowl, I laugh and I shake, maybe hoot like an owl. Since God’s holy river started bubbling up in me, it spills out-side and it’s setting me free. So I’ll crunch and I’ll dip and I’ll dance round and round;

Cause the pew was just fine, but it’s more fun on the ground. So I’ll jump like a pogo stick and fall on the floor, cause the Holy Ghost is movin’ and I just want more. Now, I’m just a party animal grazing at God’s trough;

I’m a Jesus junkie and I can’t get enough. I’m an alcoholic for the great new wine; ’cause the Holy Ghost is pouring and I’m drinkin’ all the time

I believe that, while our eyes are to be fixed upon our Lord Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, it’s important also that we keep an eye on current world affairs that pertain to Bible prophecy. The situation with Iran is becoming steadily and increasingly more dangerous. Could this lead to World War 3?

This article is a great way to get well acquainted with just what exactly the One Worlders are planning for humanity, and why we Christians, the Bible,  and our one and only true God absolutely do not fit in their “ideal” society!

Giving thanks to an unknown “god”

“My own faith is rooted in the unshakable belief in God… and an awareness of a constant and holy spiritual presence in all people, all life, and all things.” Former vice president, Al Gore

 

“I am a Christian…. I believe that there are many paths to the same place…. I am a great admirer of our founding charter… and its resolve to prevent disruptive strains of fundamentalism from taking root in this country…. I think Gandhi is a great example of a profoundly spiritual man who… never slipped into intolerance or dogma.” Former Senator, Barack Obama

“Lift us to the level of the universal…. Chant the names of the gods. Start with om: Om Krishna… Om Buddha…” A United Religions worship service (UR was founded by an Anglican bishop)

“The Buddha said, ‘You are God yourself.’” Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol

If you have read 1984 by George Orwell, you probably remember Big Brother’s mind-changing creed:

“War is PEACE. Freedom is SLAVERY. Ignorance is STRENGTH.”

It illustrates the Soviet double-speak used to confuse, transform, and then unify a compliant mass of contented slaves. And now, seventy years after its publication, Orwellian double-speak is spreading this confusion faster than ever. In this upside-down world, wrong seems right, good is called evil, and lies are simply the new convenient truths. Since feelings count more than facts, illusion reigns, oppression spreads, Jihad is justified, and the Bible is banned!

The true God behind our national Thanksgiving celebrations doesn’t conform to America’s changing values. But other spiritual options are filling the gaps as they sweep across our land. Blinding eyes to His truth, they cloud history, and mock the faith that built honesty, truth, and integrity into America’s foundation. Sad to say, that foundation is now crumbling fast. As God warned us,

“…when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them… [then] your heart is lifted up and you forget the Lord your God. …you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’ …if you by any means forget the Lord your God, and follow other gods… you shall surely perish.” Deuteronomy 8:10-19

THE RISE OF A GLOBAL SPIRITUALITY

On September 17, 1995, I signed in at Mikhail Gorbachev’s well guarded State of the World Conference as an official [amateur] reporter. I wanted a first-hand glimpse of the global plans for the 21st Century — plans that helped build the foundation for today’s rapid change.

This was clearly a global event. The former head of the Soviet Union had gathered “nearly 500 senior states-people, political leaders, spiritual leaders, scientists, intellectuals, business executives, artists and youth from 50 nations to begin a process of deliberation on the central question of what priorities, values and actions should guide humanity as it moves into the next phase of development.” As Gorbachev announced,

“From the outset I would like to suggest that we consider the establishment of a global Brain Trust [forget representative government] to focus on the present and future of our civilization … this idea of a Brain Trust can only succeed if endorsed and actively pursued by people who are widely respected as world leaders and global citizens.”

The elite speakers and partners in this venture included the elder president George Bush, Carnegie Chairman David Hamburg, Ted Turner, Maurice Strong ( the New Age head of the UN’s 1992 environmental conference in Rio de Janeiro), and Zbigniew Brzezinski, founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller. Thirteen years later he became a foreign policy adviser to Barack Obama.

An elegant Baha’i singer in a flowing white gown set the spiritual tone with a prayer to her universal god: “O faithful One… O helping one… Source of all being…” The music was her own, she said — given by the unknowable, compassionate god of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, and other spiritual avatars throughout time.

Her prayer-song fit the conference theme. As Mikhail Gorbachev observed during a dialogue on a new form of democracy,

“…there was no trace of the futile debate about what is better, capitalism or socialism… We should seek a synthesis of ideas and values that have proven their viability…”

That synthesis abolishes all Biblical absolutes. Again and again, the Communist leader and his hand-picked “council of the wise” or “global brain trust” told the assembly of more than 1000 guests and participants that a new set of inclusive universal values must replace the Judeo-Christian world view. Familiar terms must be redefined to fit the new global perspective, while the old beliefs and political systems must be abandoned.

Like many other speakers, New Age author Dr. Deepak Chopra repeated the call for synthesis in his evening plenary speech. He challenged his friendly listeners with this question:

“Can you step out of the river of your own conditioning…? For only then is there an opportunity to create… a new world. We cannot do it the way we have done it in the past. It is time to change the whole paradigm through which we view physical reality.”

Apparently, these esteemed visionaries had already made that paradigm shift. The conference left little doubt that the chosen speakers and enthusiastic audience viewed reality from a decidedly evolutionary/universalist perspective — the kind that popular author Dan Brown promoted through his latest book on the philosophy behind Freemasonry and the mystical Noetic Sciences.

The spiritual leaders addressing the Forum taught either pantheism (“God” in all), universalism (all paths lead to the same ultimate reality), or monism (all is one) as the world’s new spiritual foundation. Among them were New Age educator Willis Harman, Esalen co-founder Michael Murphy, Sonia Gandhi, and revered representatives of Vietnamese, Mongolian, and Cambodian Buddhism. Their input during panel discussion and roundtable sessions left no doubt that Biblical Christianity was marked for decay.

Astronomer Carl Sagan showed us pictures of our tiny blue planet in the midst of a vast galaxy in an infinite universe — then scolded those who still viewed minuscule individuals as significant pieces of the cosmic puzzle.

Had they forgotten the horrors of collectivism — and the environmental devastation — spawned by the Communist ideology that Gorbachev never renounced?

MURDER, MYSTICISM AND IMMORALITY

Sam Keen, author of “Fire in the Belly,” gave the closing plenary message:

“…there was very strong agreement that religious institutions have to take primary responsibility for the population explosion…. Cut the population by 90 percent and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”

The applause was deafening!

Kill millions of people? How? What happened to love, compassion, and concern for the poor? These leaders had called for poverty programs, gun control, and global financial redistribution as if they wanted to save lives. Were these schemes simply a stepping stone toward global control? Did no one care about the individual lives behind the faceless masses?

As in the former Soviet Union, an ordinary person’s life becomes worthless in this pragmatic context for global management! The illusive “common good” becomes little more than an Orwellian phrase that limits personal rights and freedom — but promotes unrestrained immorality. Notice the way Keen rationalizes his values in these quotes from “Hymns to an Unknown God”:

“Imagination allows us to sample in fantasy what is inexpedient or demonic to act out. Dionysus, the [Greek] god of excess and ecstasy [same as the Roman god Bacchus], rules supreme in dreamland…. An amoral imagination provides us with the experience in dreamtime of living ‘beyond good and evil’ that is necessary for the development of Compassion.”

That’s what mysticism is all about! Experience — the spiritual experience of an unknown god! A deceptive journey into the realm of demons where lies and licentiousness reign! Perhaps he doesn’t realize that such captivating immoral “ideals” have eroded freedom and destroyed lives since the beginning of time.

It’s not surprising that Christianity has aroused such hatred. God’s Truth — in contrast to amoral, feel-good myths — is full of warnings that we ignore at our peril. For example,

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5

THE SPREADING DARKNESS

The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown’s latest book includes a dialogue between Robert Langdon (the friendly protagonist) and Peter Solomon (his older friend and mentor, a respected professor, a 33rd degree Mason and the Supreme Worshipful Master). The two men are exploring the Masonic signs, symbols, and secrets hidden in the Washington monument, an Egyptian obelisk. Notice how God’s Word is twisted into a mystical icon of all religions.

“Robert, the Bible does not talk openly for the same reason the Ancient Mystery Schools were kept hidden…. for the same reason the neophytes had to be initiated before learning the secret teachings of the ages…. The Ancient Mysteries and the Bible are the same thing.’…

“Peter, the Bible and the Ancient Mysteries are total opposites. The mysteries are all about the god within you. . . man as god. The Bible is all about the God above you…’

“Yes! Exactly! … The moment mankind separated himself from God, the true meaning of the Word was lost. The voices of the ancient masters have now been drowned out, lost in the chaotic din of self-proclaimed practitioners [probably pointing to Christians] shouting that they alone understand the Word…’

“We’ve lost the Word, and yet its true meaning is still within reach…. It exists in all the enduring texts, from the Bible to the Bhagavad-Gita to the Koran and beyond. All of these texts are revered upon the altars of Freemasonry because Masons understand what the world seems to have forgotten… that each of these texts, in its own way, is quietly whispering the exact same message.’ Peter’s voice welled with emotion. ‘Know ye not that ye are gods?’…

“Peter lowered his voice to a whisper. ‘The Buddha said, ‘You are God yourself.’ … Even the first antipope—Hippolytus of Rome—quoted the same message, first uttered by the gnostic teacher Monoimus: ‘Abandon the search for God. . . instead, take yourself as the starting place.’…

“’A wise man once told me,’ Peter said, his voice faint now, ‘the only difference between you and God is that you have forgotten you are divine.’”

This deception is the fulfillment of the serpent’s promise in Genesis 3: “You will be like God.” That has been the driving force within occult orders through the ages. Now it’s coming out into the open.

One of the first public celebrities to proclaim this arrogant lie was New Age movie star Shirley MacLaine. “I am God,” she shouted to the world back in the 1980s.

I met her at the end of Gorbachev’s conference. She happened to walk by, and I asked her what she thought of the conference.

“It was good. It helped raise consciousness,” she answered.

“But wouldn’t it have raised more consciousness if one of the meals had just been rice instead of gourmet meats and elegant desserts?” I asked. After all, some speakers had emphasized global equality and concern for the poor.

She frowned. “People paid a lot of money to come here,” she answered. “They deserved good food.”

As George Orwell pointed out, some people in socialist collectives are meant to be “more equal than others!” In a totalitarian system, all the thanks must go to the state and/or its elite rulers — “equal” or not!

ALL THE MORE, WE WILL THANK OUR GOD!

Both socialism and idolatry have a way of building a sense of entitlement: “I deserve it.” But with God, it’s different! We don’t deserve any of His wonderful gifts! Yet His undeserved grace is available for all who will trust and follow Him!

“…Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ!” 2 Corinthians 2:14

Just when you think there is no way the courts can become more tyrannical, and judges cannot possibly make worse decisions, here comes this.  It is nothing short of preposterous. Let’s pray for this sister, as she faces the wrath of the enemy through this radical, activist, pro-homosexual society we now live in. Let’s also pray for her little girl, who is deeply disturbed when forced to be in contact with the homosexual lifestyle, since for as long as she can remember, she has been brought up in a Christian home.

A Vermont judge rules Lisa Miller must turn over her daughter to her former lesbian partner.

Superior Judge William Cohen ruled last week that Lisa Miller, a former lesbian who is now a Christian, must hand her daughter, Isabelle, over to her former partner, Janet Jenkins by Jan. 1.

Miller conceived Isabella through artificial insemination while she was in a civil union with Jenkins.  About a year later, Miller left homosexuality.

Jenkins sued for custody, even though she has no biological tie to the child.

Miller admits she made mistakes, like signing a custody agreement while still in the relationship with Jenkins, but Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and legal counsel for Miller, said that wouldn’t stop him from appealing the decision to the Vermont Supreme Court.

“This judge in Vermont ultimately ruled that he is going to switch custody from Lisa Miller,” he said, “and take her own biological daughter Isabella and move her from Virginia and put her into an activist lesbian household up in Vermont with a person she really doesn’t know, who’s not her biological mother, and frankly who’s not acted as a parent.”

The courts had ordered to spend time with Jenkins in the past, and Miller complied until her daughter complained.

“Every time that the visitation actually occurred, Isabella had violent reactions, because Janet exposed her to the lesbian lifestyle,” Staver said.  “(Jenkins) tried to convince her that she has two moms and even tried to scare her by saying that she was going to be taken from Lisa and transferred to Vermont.”

Eventually, Miller refused the court-ordered visitations.

Historically, courts have sided with the biological mother in custody battles, and Staver said the judge has never questioned Miller’s fitness as a parent.

“How can a third party, a stranger,” he asked, “interfere with the parental rights of a biological parent when that parent is fit?”

Rena Lindevaldsen, professor at Liberty University School of Law, said it’s another example of where activist courts are taking the culture.

“To have the first reported decision in the country stripping a biological mother of her child,” she said, “solely because she has refused to give visitation to a legal stranger, is shocking.

“There’s a lot of talk nowadays about drawing that line in the sand and understanding that government can’t order certain things.  When you’re ordering a child to be stripped from her biological mother, you’ve got to wonder, has the court overstepped its bounds?”

 

This story that just broke out a couple of days ago is AMAZING!!! God bless the hacker that got us that information! (I know hacking is against the law, and I’m not saying that God approves of breaking the law, but how else would we have acquired such invaluable proof?)

Remember: Climate change panic is designed to bring about One World Government, and massive wealth redistribution!

If you have not heard this story before, you have got to see these videos NOW!

The Burka Barbie

One of the world’s most famous children’s toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover – wearing a burkha.

Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby’s for Save The Children.

More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at the Salone dei Cinquecento, in Florence, Italy.

…The company director of Laird Assessors from The Wirral, Cheshire, said: ‘Bring it on Burkha Barbie, I think this is a great idea.

“I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.”

Biggest war game begins day after Tehran cleric threatened Tel Aviv

JERUSALEM – Iran began today what it said was its largest-ever military drill meant to protect the country’s scattered nuclear sites, state-run Iranian media reported.

The drill comes one day after a senior Iranian cleric warned the Islamic Republic will strike Tel Aviv with missiles if attacked.

“If the enemy should want to test its bad luck in Iran, before the dust from its missiles settles in this country, Iran’s ballistic missiles would land in the heart of Tel Aviv,” said cleric Mojtaba Zolnour, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Brigadier-General Ahmad Mighani told Iran’s Fars news agency military drills will begin today and will last five days. He said the drills will cover 600,000 square kilometers (230,000 square miles) in parts of central, western and southern Iran.

Mighani said the drills involve Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards and other military units and that the exercises will simulate a real attack on Iran’s nuclear installations.

The official Islamic Republic News Agency said yesterday the war drills would be “huge.”

Mighani was quoted calling the drills “the biggest war game.”

“The aim of the drill is to display Iran’s combat readiness and military potentials,” Mighani said.

“Defense policies, psychological operations and innovations during the war game are among the objectives of the drills,” he added.

This is part 2 of a video posted on YouTube by Nodoubt257, and it goes deeper into the subject of the Roman Catholic Church being Babylon, the Great Whore of the book of Revelations. In this video, the subject of Mariolatry (the worship of Mary, the mother of Jesus) is analyzed in depth, and the connection between Mary and the Queen of Heaven spoken of by the prophet Jeremiah is well established. Come out of her, My people, says the Lord!

I just saw this in the news today. The first thing that came to my mind is that she is being tapped to be part of something much, much greater than her talk show, and she will need to devote herself fully to some “higher” pursuits… the Peace Alliance, the One World Government, the One World Religion perhaps? I’d love to hear y’all’s take on that!

Guys, this is pretty amazing. I mean, the economist in the video predicts that the collapse of the dollar will naturally lead to a One World Government, and then to a New World Order, just like that. I had never seen this said so openly on TV like that, have you? And he says it so nonchalantly,  like it’s the only thing to be expected, everybody knows that… There is not even any effort to cover this up anymore, brethren. This train is moving, and it’s moving fast! Dear friend, get right with God, if you’re not! Repent, if you haven’t! Turn to Jesus and away from evil, if you want to escape the wrath of Almighty God and be on the winning side, for TIME IS SHORT INDEED!

This is something we definitely need to keep an eye on, for it might very well mean that the kingdom out of which the Antichrist will rise (the Revived Holy Roman Empire)  is being established right before or eyes. For those who think we are not quite in the Endtimes yet, and not really that close to the Lord’s Second Coming, better think again!

I’m writing this post to provide an example of how the spirit of the Antichrist can take over a once seemingly consecrated Christian. I say seemingly because to me it is difficult to believe that someone who is trully consecrated to God and walking with Him could subscribe to the spirit of Antichrist like this. Let me give you a brief history that will better illustrate my point:

Well, before Barack Hussein Obama was elected president last year, my family used to be totally into Black Gospel music. We used to attend a predominantly Black congregation, play with the band and the choir, and listen to a lot of Black Gospel artists at home all the time. Come Nov. 4 2008, all that changed drastically. I could no longer feel at home at hardly any Black church anymore, because I could simply not fellowship with people who had aligned themselves with the spirit of Antichrist. The same happened concerning Black Gospel music. We simply don’t play it at our home anymore.

When I first started the blog, I put up a music page with praise and worship songs I really like. One of them is Alpha and Omega, sang live by Israel Houghton. It was one of the most beautiful instances of congregational worship I have ever seen. I’m reposting this video (the second one below) for you to see what I mean.

Today, by chance, I came across his website and found a few songs of his newest album, entitled “The Power of One.” The title in itself raised my eyebrow, but I went on to listen to some of the songs. The title song is what I’d like to share with you. Here are the lyrics:

What if it all depended on me.
To change the world.
To change the world?
What if my only responsibility was to change the world.
To change the world? Let me be the ONE.
To start a revolution.
Let me sing my song to the people of the
world. It all begins with.

ONE THE POWER OF ONE.
JOINING THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BELIEVING IN ONE.
THE POWER OF ONE. DON’T HANG AROUND. STAND UP OR SIT DOWN.
AND BELIEVE WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER

What kind of love can conquer disease.
And change the world. And change the world?
What can I do to make poverty history.
And change the world. And change the world?
Let me be the ONE. To start a revolution.
Let me sing my song to the people of the world.
To the children of the world.

It all begins with…
ONE THE POWER OF ONE.
JOINING THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BELIEVING IN ONE.
THE POWER OF ONE. DON’T HANG AROUND. STAND UP OR SIT DOWN.
AND BELIEVE WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER

Please don’t close your eyes
Please don’t turn away. Let your voices rise.
Put love on display. And make a difference now.
I believe you and me. Can make a difference now.
Oh oh oh. Oh oh oh Oh oh oh It all begins with ONE.

Can you believe this? The same guy who in the second video is worshipping the Lord apparently in spirit and in truth, now comes up with this??? That’s what the spirit of the Antichrist will do, unfortunately, to so-called Christians everywhere. My heart bleeds daily for the Black church in America.There is a handful of Black pastors who have not sided with Obama, but their number is few indeed. I don’t know of any Black gospel musician, though, who has stood his/her ground against this spirit. Do you? If you do know of any, please let me know. I’m crazy to hear uncompromised Black Gospel music again!!!

 

Just so we keep our minds and our spirits on alert, brothers and sisters, I recommend you watch this video, for it has important information in it.

A Jewish settler moves a window after a house was demolished at an outpost near the West Bank Jewish settlement of Negohot November 16, 2009. REUTERS/Baz Ratner

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel triggered a fresh rift with Washington over settlement building on Tuesday by approving the building of 900 homes for Jews on West Bank land it occupied in a 1967 war and annexed to its Jerusalem municipality.

The Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth said U.S. President Barack Obama’s envoy, George Mitchell, had asked an aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at a meeting in London on Monday, to block the proposed construction at the settlement of Gilo.

But a government planning commission approved the addition of 900 housing units at Gilo, where 40,000 Israelis already live.

The Israeli decision drew an unusually sharply worded rebuke from the White House, which said it was “dismayed” and accused Israel of undermining Obama’s efforts to resume peace talks with Palestinians stalled since December.

Robert Gibbs

“At a time when we are working to relaunch negotiations, these actions make it more difficult for our efforts to succeed,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.

In his statement, Gibbs also said the United States objected to continued evictions and demolitions of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also deplored the Israeli move, spokesman Farhan Haq said. Ban “believes that such actions undermine efforts for peace and cast doubt on the viability of the two-state solution” for Israelis and Palestinians, he said.

Nabil Abu Rdaineh, aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Israel’s move “destroys the last chances for the peace process.” Abbas has said peace talks stalled since December may resume only once Israel freezes settlement construction.

A spokesman for Nir Barkat, the Israeli mayor of Jerusalem, seemed to confirm the newspaper report about Mitchell’s request, saying Barkat “strongly objects to the American demand to halt construction in Jerusalem.”

Israel rejects the international description of Gilo as a settlement and says it is a neighborhood of Jerusalem, the city it claims as its capital.

Some 500,000 Jews live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, also captured in 1967, among 2.7 million Palestinians.

Israel annexed East Jerusalem after the 1967 war, a move that was not recognized internationally. Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a state they hope to establish in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

STALEMATE

Mark Regev, a spokesman for Netanyahu, had said in response to the newspaper report that “Prime Minister Netanyahu, in order to get the peace process back on track, is willing to adopt the policy of the greatest possible restraint concerning growth in the West Bank — but this applies to the West Bank.”

“Jerusalem is Israel’s capital and will remain as such,” he said, stating an Israeli position not recognized by world powers.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki said Israel’s decision was a further step “intended to prevent the Palestinian state from happening.”

Britain’s consulate-general in Jerusalem also condemned the Israeli move saying “this decision on Gilo is wrong and we oppose it.”

Obama is pressing for a resumption of peace talks and has asked Israel to show restraint on settlements while seeking to persuade Abbas to resume negotiations without a total freeze on the construction.

Netanyahu has offered a temporary restriction on building projects, but Abbas has rejected this as insufficient, both in scale and because it does not include areas Israel annexed to Jerusalem.

Palestinian officials asked the United Nations and the European Union earlier this week to consider whether they might at some point endorse the framework of a Palestinian state without a negotiated solution to the conflict with Israel.

Our sister Karensera has put out a very insightful video on YouTube, with which I must say I agree 100%. It’s also important also to point out that the Antichrist will be a figure in the political arena, not the spiritual. As this sister stresses at the end of the video, careful study of scripture is required of us these times, since there is and there will be so much deception going around.

TEL AVIV – A top Palestinian Authority official told WND that the PA reached an understanding with the Obama administration regarding a Palestinian threat to unilaterally ask the United Nations to recognize a Palestinian state outside of negotiations with Israel.

Ahmed Qurei, former PA prime minister and member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization executive committee, said in an interview that the PA “reached an understanding with important elements within the administration” to possibly bring to the U.N. Security Council a resolution to unilaterally create a Palestinian state.

Asked to which “elements” he was referring, Qurei would only say they were from the Obama administration.

A top PA negotiator, speaking on condition of anonymity, named the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, and National Security Council member Samantha Power as among the Obama administration officials who were involved with the Palestinians’ U.N. threat.

Despite widespread assumptions the U.S. would veto any such U.N. Security Council resolution, the PA negotiator said that in initial discussions, the Obama administration did not threaten to veto their conceptual unilateral resolution.

“The U.S. told us that they prefer a negotiated settlement with Israel, but if we (Palestinians) insist on a resolution, the Americans will not necessarily reject it,” the PA negotiator said.

“The U.S. has a history of never before vetoing any U.N. move to create a new state,” the negotiator pointed out.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said yesterday the Palestinians had decided to turn to the U.N. Security Council to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.

Salam Fayyad

Separately, the negotiator, who spoke on   condition of anonymity, said that the Obama administration is “totally on board” with a plan by Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to create a state on the pre-1967 borders within two years.

WND first reported in September that according to a top PA official, the Obama administration has largely adopted the positions of the Palestinian West Bank leadership to create a Palestinian state within two years based on the pre-1967 borders, meaning Israel would retreat from most of the West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem.

The PA negotiator WND spoke with yesterday said that his authority’s primary goal now is to secure a letter of support from the Obama administration affirming the U.S. commitment to a pre-1967 Palestinian state within two years.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday hit back at the PA plan to unilaterally declare a state, warning such a move will be met by “one-sided Israeli measures.” He did not elaborate.

“There is no substitute for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and any unilateral attempts outside that framework will unravel the existing agreements between us and could entail unilateral steps by Israel,” Netanyahu told a high-level gathering of Israeli and American policy makers at the Saban Forum in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu stressed that in order to achieve peace, “negotiations must resume immediately.” He affirmed Israel was prepared to begin talks “with a generous spirit.”

“I want to stress that we are willing to take steps that will help in advancing the peace process, but it must begin, there is no reason to waste time,” said the Israeli leader.

While negotiations were not easy, Netanyahu said, “there is no other way to bring about change.”

In September, a senior PA official told WND that aside from supporting a Palestinian state in the pre-1967 borders, the Obama administration also had accepted the PA position that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations begin where they left off under Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who went further than previous Israeli leaders in his concessions to the Palestinians.

Olmert reportedly offered the PA not only 95 percent of the West Bank and peripheral eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods but also other territories never before offered by any Israeli leader, including parts of the Israeli Negev desert bordering Gaza as well as sections of the Jordan Valley.

“We understand from the U.S. that the Netanyahu government is not in a position to go against creating a state within two years,” the PA official said.

The official claimed the Obama administration was ready to ultimately consider “sanctions” against Israel if the Netanyahu government rejected negotiations leading to a Palestinian state. The official refused to clarify which sanctions he was referring to or whether he was specifically told by the U.S. government it would consider sanctions.

The PA official claimed Obama can make a “headache” for Netanyahu if the Israeli leader does not conduct negotiations leading within two years to a Palestinian state.

I thought I’d search the scriptures to find passages that deal with false teachings, false prophets and a “different gospel,” as everyday I am more and more astonished by the errors I see running rampart in the churches today, the ease with which “Christians”  fall into the traps of wrong doctrines and false teachings, the way they do not check the spirits to see if they are indeed from God, the way they fail to behave like the Berean Christians who refused to be deceived. Yes, beloved, the Falling Away as prophecied by Paul in 2 Thess. 2:3 is here, and thousands are departing from the faith. Let us contend earnestly for the faith as Jude exhorted us to do, and turn as many as we possibly can back to the true and only Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is forever praised!

Matt 7:15-20  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Matt 24:11-12 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

Matt 24:24-25  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  See, I have told you beforehand.

Luke 12:1-3  In the meantime, when an innumerable multitude of people had gathered together, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.

Matt 16:12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Gal 5:7-9 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Phil 3:18-19 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame–who set their mind on earthly things.

2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

2 Cor 11:13-14 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

1 Tim 4:1-2 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,  speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.

Acts 20:29-31 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.

2 Cor 11:3-4 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted – you may well put up with it!

Gal 1:6-10 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

Jude 3-4 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

 I have posted an article on The Shack before, but I decided to now post a couple of videos that can give an overall understanding of the heresies contained in that book. It trully puzzles me how so many Christians (such as my best friend along with my own pastor) can be enamoured of a book containing so many gross theological errors and such dangerous doctrines of demons as The Shack. I STRONGLY recommend EVERYONE against reading that book, as I’m convinced it is saturated with a strong deceptive spirit that will linger and wreak havoc in a person’s spiritual life, perhaps even with eternal consequences.

This video is terrifying, and it speaks for itself. No comments needed.

This is a very interesting video that touches on the subject of the Roman Catholic Church being the Babylon spoken of in the book of Revelations. I have just recently watched an excellent Bible prophecy lesson on this topic, and this video confirms exactly what that lesson showed. The lesson I have mentioned can be found at http://www.endtime.com/video-viewer?ID=UTE1-03B-01, under level 2, lesson 13.

Come out of her, My people, says the Lord!

Nodoubt257 from YouTube gives us this:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the US right now, and he has requested a meeting with President Obama. Watch this video to see Mr. Irvin Baxter explain how this meeting is prophetic in nature.

Although this video is an introduction to a Bible school, I found it highly instigating. In this time and hour, we must ask ourselves what we are trully investing our lives, our time, and our energy in. Are we so caught up with the cares of this world that we have lost sight of the eternal matters of God’s Kingdom, or are we seeking to devote ourselves more and more to our Father’s business? Where are we setting our affections, on things which have an eternal weight or on the fleeting pursuits of this worldly life we now, for a short season, live in our bodies?

The narrator quotes a very well known Bible passage in the Amplified version, which brought me a brand new depth of understanding: (2 Cor. 4:17-18): “For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.”

Wow! How profound are the thoughts of our God and how unsearchable His riches!

As always, Coach Dave Daubenmire gives us an outstanding and insightful piece of writing. This article is amazing!

“Therefore, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you.” Ezekiel. 35:6

Abortion is the seminal issue of our generation. The consequences of it are more deadly than the economy, the loss of jobs, and the larceny of liberty. In fact, it is deeply connected to everything happening to this nation.

God hates those who shed innocent blood. We would do well to do likewise. There was a day when we did, you know. America hasn’t always been so calloused towards the unborn. Can there be a greater evil than the murder of innocent baby boys and girls inside their mommy’s womb?

But we give baby killing a sanitized name. We call it “choice.” Who can be against choice? (With the exception of the National Education Association) If you have the courage, watch this short, VERY GRAPHIC VIDEO of an abortion. If you watch it, you will never call abortion “choice” again.

Can you imagine the terror that those innocent little babies endure as the cold steel instruments pierce their tiny bodies? Can there be a greater example of bullying? For that precious little human being about to be dismembered, there is nowhere to hide.

It is funny the way my mind works. When I heard of the tragic news out of Fort Hood, my mind immediately “googled” abortion. What safer place should there be for a soldier than an American military base?

“The womb.” Returned my thoughts. “The only safer place should be the womb. If a baby is not safe in his/her mother’s womb, no one is safe anymore.” Terror in the womb gives birth to terror in the world.

Until we stop abortion, no place in America is safe…blood will pursue you….There is nowhere to hide.

All of our safe zones have been breached. Bounded by two oceans, who would have ever imagined that our enemies could reach us in America? But “Major Muslim” once again exposes to us our vulnerability. America is no longer safe….not in our homes, not in our schools, not in our malls, not in our churches, and not on our military bases. Terror in the womb, produces terror in the world.

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Psalm 91 Without the protection of Jesus there is nowhere to hide.

God not only judges people, He judges nations. The Bible is replete with examples. Read This. America is under judgment. It is time to stop the self-denial.

Let me make a connection for you. I’ll tell you what very few will. Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It is a rod that the Lord is using to chastise America. We are blind to it. Our leaders are suicidal…oblivious that blood will pursue us…and that “God is angry with the wicked everyday.” Abortion is wicked…and God is ticked.

Political correctness, diversity, and tolerance are the instruments that God is using to bring judgment. Professing ourselves to be wise we have become fools.” He has sent our way “a strong delusion and we believe the most obvious of lies. That is what political correctness is…telling lies to look good.

According to the website TheReligionofPeace before the courts illegally permitted child-killing on January 22, 1973 only TWO acts of Islamic terror had ever occurred on American soil. From that day forward, blood has pursued America. When the safety of the womb was breached, the safety of our borders was as well.

There is now nowhere to hide.

Our nation has fallen in love with death. It is the fruit of having turned our back to God. Christians have become comfortable with death. America finds itself in a perpetual state of undeclared wars and we cheer our government’s attempts to kill around the globe in the name of “democracy.” Some of the greatest cheerleaders for killing other nation’s citizens are Christians.

Our sewers run red with the blood of 50 million unborn babies rinsed down the drains. That blood cries out to God.

Look, I know that many of you will have trouble following my logic. The reason for that is that many have failed to acknowledge the reality of an all-powerful God. Even some who claim to be Christians do not understand the totality of His Dominion. They have been taught a “compartmentalized Christianity” where a “personal” God is involved with one’s daily life, but that this same God takes a “hands off” approach when it comes to dealing with national sins.

Benjamin Franklin in his famous appeal during the Continental Convention opined “I have lived, Sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this Truth, that God governs in the Affairs of Men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without His notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without His Aid?”

We could use such wisdom today. Sin has consequences. The murders at Fort Hood and the murder in the womb are both “Man Made Disasters.”

Yes my friends, God judges nations. Blood has a voice and it cries for vengeance. Blood is in hot pursuit of America. It is running in torrents down our streets. No one is safe, no place is secure. Sin has blinded our eyes.

A Muslim murders innocent Americans and our leaders “look for a motive.” The media makes excuses for why Hasan lived out his beliefs.

We kill our children in the womb. Our son’s and daughter’s are Dying For Islam. Health care reform sets its sights on old people.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deut 30:19

…Therefore choose life…

“But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.” Numbers 32:23

The walls have been breached. There is nowhere to hide.

This is a very eye opening video, as it shows two Muslim men making entirely contradicting statements in New York City. The first one is inside a mosque, and he tells the interviewer that they (the Muslims in that mosque) want to show the world what the real Islam is all about: “Islam is about peace, Islam is about moderation, Islam is about friendship. Islam opposes any kind of hatred against anybody.” Right after that, we see two passionate Muslims preaching in the streets of New York, and then we see the reporter explaining that, if you are not a Muslim, you are considered by them as a disbeliever. After that, Younes Abdullah Mohammed unashamedly reveals their true agenda and what Islam is really all : “We are commanded to terrorize disbelievers,and this is a religion, like I said. In the Qu’ran it says this very clearly in the Arabic language, and this means terrorize them. It’s a command from Alah.” So there is no excuse whatsoever for politicians such as Obama to commend or praise Islam in any way, shape or form.

Beloved, I want to share my joy with you today for answered prayer: for some time now I have been asking the Lord to hook me up with like-minded believers, and with people who know more than I do, who have something to teach me, who understand the times we are living in, people who are different from the Christians and leaders surrounding me at my physical church (I’ll expound on that at a later post), and just these last few days I have encountered a number of excellent blogs and sites to learn from. I am trully thankful to the Lord for that, and for all of you also, who add so much to my spiritual life with your comments and insights during our discussions. Glory to God!!!

The following article is most excellent, and it spoke volumes to me! I know it will bless you also, my fellow truthseekers. Please read it, it will be worth your time.

Following article written by Pastor Larry DeBruyn, originally found at http://www.frbaptist.org/bin/view/Ptp/PtpTopic20090916205418, although I came accross it here: http://herescope.blogspot.com/2009/09/x-men.html (another EXCELLENT site)

Someone once said that sin is as much breaking God’s heart as it is His Law. When God looked down on the perversity of the people on earth before the Deluge, it was recorded that He “was grieved in His heart” (Genesis 6:6b). When confronted by resident wickedness both without and within the professing church, Christians can manifest one of three reactions: approval (1 Corinthians 5:2), indifference (Zephaniah 1:12), or disapproval as indicated by the presence of either anger (Psalm 119:53) or grief (Psalm 119:136). So the question becomes, as we see the worldliness-wickedness invading the church, how do we feel about it? Are we agitated by, indifferent to, or accommodating of it?

Not unlike the society and church of our times, during Ezekiel’s ministry Judah found herself in a moral and spiritual “melt down.” Fraud, violence, adultery, and idolatry were running rampant amongst God’s chosen people. Idols had been set up in the Temple (Ezekiel 8:17; 9:9).

goldencalfFrom his location in Babylon, the Lord took Ezekiel on a virtual reality tour of the Temple, the place where on the Mercy Seat beneath the Cherubim, God’s Shekinah glory was to have been seated (Ezekiel 8:4). What he saw in that place of worship stunned the prophet. On his guided tour of the inner court, the Lord showed the prophet where first the people had substituted an idol image for Yahweh; where second, the elders worshiped animals; where third, the women sobbed over the death of Tammuz, a mythological fertility god who had married the Egyptian goddess Ishtar; and where fourth, the priests worshiped the sun (Ezekiel 8:5-18). Up-close and personal, the prophet saw how the nation had abominated into apostasy, how Israel had turned from worshiping the Creator to idolizing the creation and its creatures (See Romans 1:21-23.).

Yet in the midst of all those “alternative spiritualities,” and like the remnant of Elijah’s day who refused to bow their knee to Baal and kiss the idol god (1 Kings 19:18), some believers preserved themselves to be holy unto the Lord. So the Lord instructed the angel dressed in white to mark an “X” on the foreheads of the faithful, a mark that would spare them from the coming divine judgment (circa 600 BC).[1]

mark-of-the-beast1Most have heard about “the mark of the beast”, the mark the deceived will receive at the end of the age, an identity without which they will neither be able to buy or sell (Revelation 14:9-12). The prophet Ezekiel wrote about a different mark, an “X” that was to be written on the foreheads of those in Judah who had refused to go along with the popular spiritual trends of that day. The “X” would spare them from the coming divine wrath. So the Lord instructed the angel: “Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst” (Ezekiel 9:4). Pause with me . . . for a moment let’s project back to that era and ask ourselves the following question: If we had been alive in Ezekiel’s day, would the angel have marked us to be spared from divine judgment?

It was a remnant who strongly disapproved of the apostasy of the majority. In the words of the Lord, they groaned and sighed over the “abominations” (Ezekiel 8:6, 9, 13, 15, 17; 9:4) they saw being committed in the name of religion in their midst. What they saw sickened them to the core of their spiritual and emotional being. Would the angel have marked us if we had lived in that day? We should check out our feelings. Charles Feinberg observed: “Grief is always the portion of those who know the Lord in an evil day. The marked ones were penitent and faithful at a time of widespread departure from the will of the Lord.”[2] Another commentator adds that the criterion for receiving the mark was “an affair of the heart–a passionate concern for God and His people. Failing that, there was no mark . . .”[3]

Some in the mainstream Christian media have called those involved in discernment ministry “Christian attack dogs.”[4] Maybe a better metaphor-label would be “Christian guard dogs”! Discerners so love their Master (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ) and His Bride (i.e., the church) that they agonize to protect His truth and her purity.

Allow me to propose a litmus test as to whether or not we might have been marked in Ezekiel’s day. But before asking some questions, we should note the Apostle Peter’s warning: “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you” (2 Peter 2:1; Compare Matthew 7:13-15; Jude 17-19.). Based upon Peter’s prediction, does the worldliness that is invading the church bother us? (James 4:4) Does it concern us when we see churches being manipulated by the mechanics of church growth, when the end of growth justifies any means to achieve it? (2 Corinthians 2:17) Does it bother our souls to see the goal of growth eclipsing the Gospel, to see methods employed usurping the Message preached? (Romans 1:16) Does it grieve us to observe the church believing God’s truth less while enjoying “worship celebrations” more? (Matthew 15:8-9) Does the rampant immorality amongst professing evangelicals cause us to sigh? (1 Corinthians 5:2) Were you bothered a few years ago when one evangelical leader, who led a movement in his state to preserve the institution of traditional marriage, was cornered into admitting that he solicited sex from a male prostitute? (Jeremiah 23:14) Do false teachers with their strange and unbiblical teachings annoy you? (Revelation 2:2) Given our media age, does the development of the personality cults around evangelical leaders and speakers, where appearance and a schmoozing style trump substance, concern us? (1 Corinthians 1:12; 2 Peter 2:3; Jude 16) Are some of us even unaware that there are such critters as false teachers who stupefy their followers with their heretical teachings? (Romans 16:17) Does it upset us to see the Christian faith being publicly maligned for reason of the immoral behavior and unbiblical teachings prevalent amongst professing evangelicals? (2 Peter 2:2) In short, are we discerners? (Hebrews 5:14) If we are not, then we should not expect to be marked.

Well, you might be asking, how can we know whether or not a person is a false teacher? Through Jeremiah the Lord provided this description of false prophets: “The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds” (Jeremiah 14:14). Of such prophets Jeremiah said that, “They speak a vision of their own imagination, not from the mouth of the Lord” (Jeremiah 23:16b). Again, I ask you, do you know of any false prophets today? You may protest the question saying, “Well, I know men who speak for God who are true.” But that’s not the question. Do you know any false teachers? I know this is a discomforting question–but do you? If you don’t, I would say that you have a very grave problem . . . a very grave problem indeed. And it is this: You may not value God’s truth enough to know what it is and thereby be incapable of discerning “the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error” (1 John 4:4-6).

From his study of human history, a famous historian once remarked how he observed that the majority was seldom right. Jesus agreed. He said: “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it.” He continued to say, “For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”

Wolf%20-%20sheepThen the Lord concluded: “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:13-15). Interesting, isn’t it . . . that the Lord warned the multitudes to watch out for false prophets in the very context in which He differentiated the way of the majority from the Way of the minority. Jesus knew that to their own destruction the majority will follow the way of the false prophets and teachers. They will not be marked out for salvation. They will not be “X-Men”. Like the compromisers of Ezekiel’s day, they went along to get along. So allow me to ask you again: Dear Reader, do you know of any false prophets around today, or are you living in denial, in “a spiritual never-never land”? Will you choose to remain unwarned by the very warning that Jesus and the rest of the prophets and apostles warned you about; mainly, that false prophets and teachers will arise who will lead multitudes to walk the broad way leading to destruction? Remember: Seldom is the majority right.

For any Christians concerned to discern, they may be comforted to know they’re taking the narrow Way. A spirit of discernment is symptomatic of true faith. The Lord’s sheep care, yes, even “sigh and groan” when they see fellow evangelicals lapsing into worldliness and ungodliness. Goats however, are unmoved (Matthew 25:31-46). Yet the caring can be comforted to know that their discernment evidences their solidarity with the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Being concerned to discern marks them out– “X” — as true believers (See 1 John 2:18-24.). Yet the overriding emotion of discernment ought to be that of grief. Yes, there may be a time for anger. God gets angry. He was with Ezekiel’s generation, so much so that after He had told the angel in white to mark the believing remnant, the Lord instructed the other six angels, “Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.” (Ezekiel 9:5b-6). Yet we must remember that, “the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God” (James 1:20).

So it’s truly a sad day when we see those professing to know God believing and behaving as if they do not. So it’s significant to note that the divine judgment was to begin in the sanctuary and then work its way out through Jerusalem and the rest of the entire nation (Compare 1 Peter 4:17.). This order of judgment compelled Paul to command the congregation at Rome: “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:17-18, KJV). But if we are to engage in such marking, we ought to be reminded that the accompanying emotion ought to be one of grief. Yet we ought also to be reminded that in the end those who refuse to mark false teachers may not be marked by the Lord to be spared divine judgment.

The issue of dividing the land of Israel is of utmost seriousness to God. God will surely bring judgment upon those who promote the division of the land He calls His own (see scripture bellow). This issue will ultimately be  settled by Jesus at His return during the Battle of Armageddon (in the Valley of Jehoshaphat). America would certainly enter a new level of judgment by God should the Obama administration go forth with their intention to support the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian State including such large portions of the land allotted by God to the Jewish people.

Let us pray that God will bring about a change of course in these decisions.

jerusalem“FOR BEHOLD, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for their treatment of My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land.” (Joel 3:1-2)

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad

TEL AVIV – The U.S. is considering adopting a unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence in the West Bank and Jerusalem regardless of negotiations with the Jewish state, according to Israeli sources speaking to Israel’s Haaretz newspaper.

WND first reported in September that according to a top Palestinian Authority official, the Obama administration has largely adopted the positions of the PA to create a Palestinian state within two years based on the pre-1967 borders, meaning Israel would retreat from most of the West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem.

WND reported that the White House had accepted the positions of Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who had quietly called for a state on the pre-1967 borders within two years.

Now Haaretz is quoting reports indicating that Fayyad has reached a secret understanding with the Obama administration over U.S. recognition of an independent Palestinian state.

Haaretz quoted Israeli sources stating Fayyad’s plan specifies that at the end of a designated period for bolstering national institutions, the PA, in conjunction with the Arab League, would file a “claim of sovereignty” to the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly over the 1967 borders.

Israeli officials further told Haaretz that Fayyad had boasted of positive meetings about his plan with prominent EU member states, including the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Sweden.

Fayyad also told Israeli officials the Obama administration did not oppose his plan.

A senior Israeli foreign-policy official told Haaretz, “It’s a very dangerous move.”

Israeli sources further said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is in Washington today, discussed Fayyad’s proposal in previous meetings with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Obama’s Mideast envoy George Mitchell.

Netanyahu reportedly requested the U.S. tell Fayyad that it would not support his proposal and would veto it in the Security Council. Haaretz reported Netanyahu has yet to receive a clear response from Washington on its stance on Fayyad’s plan.

‘Obama can create headache for Netanyahu’

A top PA official told WND in September that the Obama administration told the PA it will support the announcement of a Palestinian state within two years.

The official also said Obama had accepted the PA position that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations begin where they left off under Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who went further than previous Israeli leaders in his concessions to the Palestinians.

mwestbankOlmert reportedly offered the PA not only 95 percent of the West Bank and peripheral eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods but also other territories never before offered by any Israeli leader, including parts of the Israeli Negev desert bordering Gaza as well as sections of the Jordan Valley.

“We understand from the U.S. that the Netanyahu government is not in a position to go against creating a state within two years,” the PA official said.

The official claimed the Obama administration was ready to ultimately consider “sanctions” against Israel if the Netanyahu government rejected negotiations leading to a Palestinian state. The official refused to clarify which sanctions he was referring to or whether he was specifically told by the U.S. government it would consider sanctions.

Obama can make a “headache” for Netanyahu if the Israeli leader does not conduct negotiations leading within two years to a Palestinian state, the PA official claimed.

This is a repost I found appropriate for this time:

My dear brethren, I want to convey to you that we are living in unique times. We are living at the end times. A time that Jesus said would be unequaled from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be equaled again, agreeing with Daniel, who prophesied that this would be a time such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until now. There has never been a time like this, nor shall there ever be again. It is a unique opportunity for the church to lift the torch of God’s truth higher than ever. We are called to be watchmen on the walls, blowing the trumpet of warning so that those who will listen might be saved.

But saved from what? That is the point of this message. Those who believe and repent shall be saved from God’s coming wrath. Our Lord Jesus is coming to earth again, but this time He will not come as a suffering lamb, but a conquering lion, a fierce warrior king who will come to fulfill two main purposes: (1) deliver his people – the blood washed nation made up of those who remained connected to the vine, who had bought enough of the oil of His presence for their lamps, who were found wearing the white garments God Himself has provided, those who did not prostitute themselves with worldly idols, those whose hearts were fully His; and (2) judge the wicked – those who have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who have suppressed the truth by their wickedness, haters of God, who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness, those who have claimed to be wise, but are fools, who are filled with all kinds of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity, and who not only practice those evil deeds but who also approve of others who do the same.

The Bible says that the Lord is a God of retribution, that in the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; He will soon pour it out, and all the wicked of the earth shall drink it down to its very dregs. Church, this is the message we need to be preaching today. This is the evangelism, not only to the unchurched, but also to all the church folks who are sleeping, oblivious to the signs around them that the Lord’s day is at hand. It is time for prophets to rise who will be bold enough to preach a message like those of John the Baptist and Jeremiah, “Repent lest ye perish, for the kingdom of God is at hand!” Shallow evangelistic messages that stop at “Receive Jesus in your heart” and “Jesus loves you” WON’T DO!!!

The Lord has laid in my heart that He is getting ready to draw down a sharp line to separate the sheep from the goats. It is time to preach “Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve,” for the window of grace won’t always remain open.

While we hear a cry for “Unity!” and ” Peace!” everywhere, our Lord Himself has said He has come to the earth not to bring peace, but FIRE and DIVISION. The following video has a powerful message on this subject that I’d like to share with you. It is based on the text from Luke 12:49-56:

“I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!  But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!  Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.  For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.  Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

Then He also said to the multitudes, “Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming’; and so it is.  And when you see the south wind blow, you say, ‘There will be hot weather’; and there is.  Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time? ”

Listen carefully. It will lead you to rethink some of the things you learned in Sunday School.

God bless you!

Lately I have been thinking a lot about the power of God. You see, I believe we are in the endtimes, most likely not too far from the beginning of the 7 year period mostly called the Great Tribulation (although I believe it is more accurate to say that the Great Tribulation itself will only last 3 ½ years, but that’s another topic). I keep thinking about how life will be for the saints of God once the Mark of the Beast is instituted, and we no longer can buy or sell or participate in the regular economy, being effectively pushed out of society. I ask myself, “How shall we live? Where shall we get our food, water, and electricity? How shall we keep ourselves warm or cool, how shall we care for our children’s need, the needs of our elderly parents, how shall we recover from sickness without access to the medical establishment or to proper medication?” And the answer in fact is quite simple indeed.

We are reminded of the time when the children of Israel were journeying in the desert for 40 years, and God supernaturally sustained them. He caused manna and quail to fall from Heaven, their clothes never wore out, the little one’s shoes grew with their feet (can you imagine shoes that last 40 years while treading on scorching rocks and sand?). They had water gush out from the rock, while at another time God made the bitter waters fresh for them. And even before all that happened, when they were being pursued by Pharoah (a type of the Antichrist) and his army, everyone knows how God miraculously delivered them by parting the Red Sea, and that’s when the Words of the Father ring clearly in our ears: “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!”

Elijah was another godly man who experienced God’s supernatural provision. When he was running from Jezebel, depressed and praying to die, God sent him an angel who cooked for him and told him twice to eat and drink, and being strengthened by those two quick meals, Elijah traveled for 40 days. Earlier the Lord had told him to hide by a brook where He sent ravens twice a day to bring him bread and meat, and later the Lord sustained him through a widow whose provision of flour and oil never ran out as long as the famine lasted.

I strongly believe the saints will see a manifestation of God’s power that will be equivalent to or greater that those experienced by God’s people in the Old Testament, or even in the time of the apostles in the early church.  Remember Daniel 11:32-33 says, “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.” And that will happen simply because we will need to rely on God’s supernatural power as never before if we are to survive the Great Tribulation and the wrath of the Antichrist. We will need the gifts of the Spirit like never before, especially gifts such as healing, and working of miracles, but also the Word of knowledge (making us aware of our pursuers’ plans and moves), Word of wisdom (to devise God-given strategies for our survival), the gift of faith (oh, how we will need that one!), and prophecy (warning us of what lies ahead), discernment of spirits (to be able to tell the real from the false, the fire of God from strange fire, the wheat from the tares, God’s signs and wonders from those of the False Prophet), as well as several other supernatural manifestations of God’s power.

I am fully aware of the false prophets, teachers, ministries, doctrines, heresies, and of the general apostasy that’s come upon the church in these last days, as foretold in Scripture, BUT there is a real manifestation of the Holy Spirit and the power of God that we must NEVER forsake or cast away or shun, for by that power the Lord will keep His people in the perilous times which lie ahead, of which we have not even seen a glimpse yet. The Bible says, “Quench not the Holy Spirit; despise not prophesying; prove all things, hold fast to what is good.”

Meanwhile, I ask myself, “Where is the real power of God today? Where are the real gifts? Why don’t we see the real manifestation of God’s power today in the churches?” I think it is mostly due to a lack of holiness, commitment, real conversions (there are so many professing Christians nowadays who have never been born again, even in the pulpits), a lack of godly leadership, of prayer, a lack of faith in the Word, a whole lot of selfishness, selfish ambition, carnal Christianity, and greed, a lifestyle that is way too comfortable, not to mention many other factors. The truth, as we all know, is that the church today for the most part is an apostate church, it has fallen far, far away from the pattern of the church in the book of Acts, looking a lot more like the Church of Laodicea in the book of Revelations. 

Beloved, I urge you to seek God like never before, ask Him to begin preparing you to be a vessel of His power in the days ahead, seek the gifts of the Spirit, so that you may be able to be a blessing to the saints of God in the times of persecution that are about to hit true born again Christians all over the world. Let’s begin to ask, “Where is the God of Elijah?”

I have decided to post this video because I have been seeing a lot of stuff circulating the Internet about some sort of relationship between aliens and endtime events, and also because the author’s conclusion on this controversial topic matches exactly what I have always thought, and also what I teach my children. Please watch the video, and let me know what you think.

This is a great discussion exposing the practises of the Emergent Church, and how it is rapidly readying the Apostate Church to merge with not only Catholicism, but also New Age and the practises of Eastern religions, and ultimately with the interspirituality of the Antichrist’s One World Religion. Do not be deceived: EVERYONE who surrenders their mind and soul and spirit to this kind of teaching will end up being part of the Antichrist’s government, and ultimately they will all take the Mark of the Beast, and be damned forever. Make no mistake about this: unless they repent and turn to the unadultered, true, and ONLY Gospel of Jesus Christ, these people WILL GO TO HELL in the end, so I urge you, my friend, if you consider yourself a Christian, and if you want to serve God, COME OUT from among those apostate churches that are teaching contemplative prayer and other mystical practises, which will only lead you deeper and deeper into the strong delusion that will cause millions to perish. COME OUT of her, My people, says the Lord!!!

This is scary, people! Just try to imagine what’s coming our way, and how we will be persecuted!!!

Relevant article. Someone has to teach our Christian boys and teenagers how to be real men. I personally don’t want any of my boys to act or be like sissies, I want them to learn how to behave like men.

By Coach Dave Daubenmire
November 5, 2009
Excerpts from article found at: http://www.newswithviews.com/Daubenmire/dave174.htm

I have started a varsity football program at a local Christian High School. Although I vowed to myself that I would never return to prowling the sidelines when I walked away from public education in 2000, the opportunity to train young males to be men was something I could not, in good conscience, run from.

Not all males are men. I hope you understand that. Especially convincing is the evidence I have garnered recently that Christian males in particular are the least manly.

It is cultural, I guess. Someone, somewhere, determined that trading the old man for the new man meant losing your backbone. Heck, you can’t even pass gas at a “men’s fellowship” without being looked at as if you had just pee-peed on the Decalogue. Pastors are the worst. Any whiff of “Christian testosterone” sends them to their Joyce Meyer collection of sermons in an attempt to “soften” your rough edges.

Well, not for me. My new birth made me more manly, more courageous, and more willing to live life on the edge. I like guys with rough edges. In fact, I’d rather hang out with some of my “lost” buddies than some of the sissified males I meet in Christian circles.  It’s like one acquaintance opined after playing a round of golf with me. He knew my “reputation” but had never had the opportunity to spend any time with me.

“I gotta tell you Coach, I really enjoyed playing with you. I hope you don’t take this wrong, but you are not like most Christian guys I know. You’re more…normal…I guess is the word. So many guys I know who go to church seem phony…too sweet for me, if you know what I mean. I could see myself hangin’ out with you more often.”

“Come on, Tim,” I barked back. “I’m just like Jesus. Jesus was studly. I got something to die for now. How many guys do you know who can say that?”

His look of bewilderment spoke volumes. “So Dude…Coach…where do you go to church?

Our football team is driving me nuts. They are great young men, obedient and mannerly, the kind of kid you could trust with your daughter. But as my own high school football coach often said they need a little “piss and vinegar.” They take the “turn the other cheek” attitude with them onto the field. Our Christian-culture has taught them that being “gracious in defeat” is Christ-like. I tell them being “gracious in victory” is more fun.

Maybe it is just me. I want them to be MEN. Our Christian-culture teaches them to be doormats. In Sunday school they are taught to be kind. I want them to be valiant!

Needless to say, I am swimming upstream on this one. All day long they are taught in school to “act like Christians.” That is the problem, I tell them. Stop ACTING like a Christian and start BEING one.

But we don’t even know what that means. WWJL…What Was Jesus Like? I promise you this. He was all MAN. He confronted evil, challenged the status quo, upset some apple-carts, and spoke what was on His mind. He was the original “Braveheart.”

Come on now. Look around at the Christian role models our young men have to look up to. Most don’t even look like men. What is the word that pop culture has given us…metrosexuals…? Modern Christian men are the ultimate metrosexuals.

What is a metrosexual? According to the Urban Dictionary, it is a guy who uses mousse on his hair, cream on his skin, wears jewelry, and designer clothes. Look at the Pastor your son sees every Sunday. Does he ooze testosterone or progesterone? Is he someone who appears to be steadfast and unmovable or someone who is more compromising and nice?

It matters, you know. What a young man thinks a Christian man looks like, matters. I was raising-Cain with our players last week and I told them “You guys make me want to cuss! The Bible says to be angry and sin not. I want you to know that I am angry enough to cuss…but I’m not going to. You guys would do well to get a little ticked off yourselves.”

But, I suppose Christian men aren’t permitted to get mad anymore. It’s not very Christ-like.

Look at the “Christian-school your child attends. How many women are doing the teaching? How many women know how it feels to be a man…especially a young one? Who do the young men answer to? You got it…women. Who teaches them about Christianity? Bingo…women. Just where is it our young guys go to learn how to be a man?

Can I use myself as an example? I have always been the aggressive type. Arriving fourth out of five children, being small (5’7”) in stature (I was called Baby Dave by my cousins until I was 10), and a natural whipping boy for my older brothers and their friends, I learned early to stand up and fight back. It was that “spunky” attitude that enabled me to be a three sport star in high school, earn varsity letters in football, basketball, and baseball at Otterbein College, and lead the fraternity in weekend drinking binges. “Daubie” was the life of the party…the original “wild and crazy guy.”

In 1987, at the age of 35, I met Jesus. Raised in church as a child, forced by my mother to watch Billy Graham crusades on television, I was religious enough to know right from wrong. Nothing more than a religious pagan, I ran to the altar with fear and trembling when the Gospel was clearly, and uncompromisingly, articulated to me. From that day forward my life has never been the same. Jesus did for me what a phone booth did for Clark Kent; changed me into a brand new man.

Overnight, I had gone from serving the King of Beers to serving the King of Kings and for the next 10 years “men of God” tried to turn me into a sissy… to domesticate me…to conform me to their image of what a “Christian man” should be. Until the ACLU came knocking at my door.

I thank God for the ACLU…they dynamited my sissy hind-end out of the pew. I’ve been on a devil-hunt ever since.

I grew up on John Wayne and Combat, Have-Gun Will-Travel and Paladin. Who can ever forget Matt Dillon and Gunsmoke, Hoss Cartwright and Bonanza, Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry, and Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels in The Lone Ranger?

Today our sons get weenies like Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Clay Aiken, and Zac Efron. Our churches get Joel Osteen, Ed Young, and Ted Haggard.

When I was a young boy the good guys were men, they loved women, and they defended the weak. Today, our leaders “come to consensus,” “reach across the aisle,” and are “open-minded.” Well, not me. I’m closed minded and proud of it. I know what I believe and not afraid to defend it. The prissy-pastors don’t know what to do with me.

I wonder, was Jesus open-minded? Did He preach a message of “consensus building?” Did He use mousse, face cream, and wear designer jeans?”

I was reading this week  (Matt. 16) where folks had trouble differentiating between Jesus and John the Baptist…they were cousins, you know. The establishment wanted nothing to do with The Baptist…he wasn’t polished enough….locusts, camel hair, wild honey…wasn’t in vogue, if you know what I mean.

Jesus flipped over tables, John’s mouth cost him his head. Their paths took them down the same road.

Jesus wasn’t relevant to the world; He overcame it. “ Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist.”

Keep your mousse and jewelry and pass me the locusts and the wild-honey.

Jesus was no sissy. It’s time we stopped representing him as one.

You MUST see this video, perhaps more than once! This is what the Bride of Christ needs more than anything, more than ever now. Send it to your friends! Pray, seek God’s face! Pray for THIS type of awakening and revival to come into the Church of Jesus Christ NOW!!!

Philos71 from YouTube gives us this (I suggest you click on the YouTube page and read the info on the side):

I thought this was interesting. The pastor of my church is a born again Jew, and he always says that the Judaism that is practised by Orthodox Jews today has hardly anything at all to do with the Judaism of the Old Testament anymore, being much more based on rabbinic traditions than on God’s Word. Yet I never thought that the true roots of Judaism today came from Ancient Egypt, but now that I saw this interview, it makes perfect sense, after all, in their hearts the Israelites never really left Egypt, as they continued to serve other gods and fall into the sin of idolatry over and over and over again throughout the centuries.

Towards the end of the second video, the French Historian mentions the Vatican, and the video maker connects it to the Babylon of the book of Revelations. This also makes perfect sense to me, as I have been studying Biblical prophecy and every characteristic of Babylon mentioned in the book of Revelations fits the Vatican perfectly: A city that sits on seven hills (Rome), dressed in scarlet and purple (the official collors of the cardinals and bishops of Rome), she sits on many waters (peoples, multitudes, nations and languages – the Catholic Church has a strong following in many nations all over the world), she has made all the nations drunk with the wine of her adultery (idolatry), she is drunk with the blood of the saints (the Catholic church murdered between 6 and 60 million Protestants during the Inquisition).

If you are a Catholic, and you love God and His Son, and you want to serve them, God has a word for you: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues.”

What is being preached in your church these days? A social Gospel? A seeker friendly Gospel? A tolerant Gospel?  A universalist Gospel? An inclusive Gospel? An ecumenical Gospel? A prosperity Gospel? A Triumphalist Gospel? An interfaith Gospel? A false peace Gospel? An Emergent Gospel? A false Gospel?

Or is it the true saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, the undiluted Word of God, the whole counsel of God, the power of God unto salvation, a Gospel of repentance, a Gospel of sanctification, a Gospel of full consecration, the Cross of Jesus Christ and the power of His Spirit?

We need true preachers today, more than we need anything else in this world, men of God who will not compromise the truth for earthly gain, who will preach in season and out of season, not afraid to offend people with the truth, not afraid to tell them the error of their ways and the end thereof, not afraid to tell them of the straight and narrow path, of Jesus as the only way to Heaven, and not afraid to warn them of the soon return of our Lord and of the judgment and the wrath of God to come.
