If I had told Christians, thirty years ago, that in the not-too-distant future Christians would line up to lay down on a table, listen to relaxing music and have someone impart evil spirits into their bodies, they would probably have thought I was nuts.

If I had told them that, before receiving these spirits into their bodies, Christians would pray to them and invite them in, would they have believed me?

If I had told them that churches would actually be promoting the practice, they would have shaken their heads in amazement and wondered ‘Where are the pastors, where are the elders, where are those with discernment–how can this be?’

How far astray the church has wandered!!  Before I became a Christian, I dabbled in the occult.  I was told there was ‘black magic’ and ‘white magic’–that a person could have supernatural powers and use them for good.  I bought the lie that the ‘goodness’ or ‘evilness’ of the practice was determined by one’s intention.

The truth is:  the power, the energy force that empowers people who seek supernatural power, is evil It springs from demonic beings–beings that were once angels, but rebelled against God.

There is another lie:  that there are good spirits or evil spirits that can be our guides, and that we can choose which.

The truth is:  the only ‘good spirits’ are angels that are living in obedience to God.  They are in submission to Him only.  They do not submit to the will of men, or make themselves available to do their bidding.  Angels do not seek to live in the bodies of men, because they are spirit beings that live in the spirit realm, and have glorious spiritual bodies.

(Evil spirits, on the other hand, have been cast out of heaven.  Their spirit bodies are now devoid of power, because they are no longer empowered by the presence of God.  Their true appearance is distorted and misshapen, because they no longer reflect His glory.)

For people seeking spiritual power, there is the promise of a symbiotic relationship, a ‘win-win’ situation for both them and the disembodied spirits who seek a fuller existence in the physical realm.  These spirits are willing to submit themselves to you, to a certain extent, in trade for the right to dwell in your physical body.  (Contrary to popular belief, these spirits can inhabit the body of a Christian!)

However, just as they did not submit to God, these demonic spirit beings are not going to submit themselves to the will of men for long.  Once they take up residence inside your body, they will battle with your spirit for control.  Unlike you, they do not need food or sleep.  They will battle you 24/7 until your spirit retreats and they become the dominant spirit in your body.

These demons are part of Satan’s army here on Earth.  There are many deceptions, tailored to the beliefs and cultures of different people, that encourage them to open themselves to spirits.

Wherever there is sin, there is demonic activity.

Each of the ten commandments, if followed, is a protection against opening oneself (inadvertently) to different kinds of evil spirits.  At the top of the list is the commandment that offers protection against the most powerful of the demonic spirits, and it works itself down from there:

1. Not worshiping other gods–protects against possession by powerful territorial spirits, and even Satan himself.

2. Not creating or worshiping idols–also protects against possession by powerful territorial spirits, and even Satan himself.  Physical idols create a place of habitation, and a point of contact, for demons.

3. Not misusing the name of God–protects us from spirits of blasphemy.

4. Keeping the Sabbath–keeps us in remembrance that God alone is The Creator.  This protects us from pride and the temptation to follow men (who may be hosting demon spirits).

5. Honoring one’s parents–protects us against spirits of rebellion.

(pride and rebellion were the origins of Satan’s fall)

6. Not committing murder–protection against  murderous spirits.

(rebellion was the first human sin, murder was the second)

7. Not committing adultery–protection against the multitude of unclean spirits that lead us to partake of every kind of sexual impurity.

8. Not stealing–protection against thieving spirits.

9. Not giving false testimony–protection against lying spirits.

10. Not coveting–protection against spirits of greed (and the love of money, which is the root of allevil).

When evil spirits enter in, they bring others with them.  Never underestimate the potential of small things.  Most people, as children, begin sinning ‘at the bottom of the list’ (of the ten commandments).  Once the spirits of greed, lying, or stealing enter in, they open the door to others, and we get involved in sins of ever-increasing severity.

Because these demons are part of Satan’s army here on Earth, he goes to great lengths to encourage people to sin–to open the door to them, so that they can take up residence in physical bodies where they can do greater work to promote his rebellion against God.

No, not everyone who is possessed of evil spirits becomes a murderous zombie!  But, because of the voices they begin to hear, the spiritual leadings they feel, many become false teachers and promoters of all kinds of heresy.  And that brings us back to the subject of this post.

There are now many in the churches who have been bewitched and bedeviled, who have opened themselves to ‘spirit guides’, and have then worked, at their behest, to become promoters of these practices in their churches.

Chances are, many of you have been exposed to these heresies and deceiving spirits–it has become very widespread within the churches.  It will be hard for some of you to consider the information that I am providing, because of pride, disbelief, and/or the influence of demonic spirits that will seek to snatch away the truth, to protect themselves, lest their deceptions be exposed.

Please listen to this audio!!  There is VERY important information here. If you find yourself becoming angry or defensive . . . step back and ask yourself why.  The unwillingness to receive correction (pride) can keep us in bondage.  No one likes to admit that they were wrong, or that they were fooled, but we are all susceptible to deception, and to making mistakes.  Focus instead on what you can do about it.

If you were involved with this, please repent of your involvement.  Then you will need to do some spiritual warfare–renouncing of spirits and (later) possibly obtaining deliverance.

But before you ‘jump from the frying pan into the fire’–PRAY!!  Ask God for direction, protection, and guidance.  There are false deliverance ‘ministries’ out there that are linked to this whole spiritual movement!  It is bigger than you think–this audio focuses in on just one aspect of it.

Besides repenting and renouncing, don’t do anything else until you have spent much time in prayer and seeking God, and until you have learned much more about what you have gotten ensnared in.

Here is a second interview, that delves into the subject of ‘Christian’ yoga.   Why is it dangerous?

http://olivetreeradio.com/OTM2011_04_30B.mp3

How bad is it?  Listen to an interview with an expert.

We have been lied to, right from the start.  The danger continues, for ALL of us, as radiation continues to stream from the site and fall out over the United States.  The possibility of future catastrophe still looms, with the continued risk of an explosion.

I believe God showed me something about ‘The Great Deception’, and here is what I think He was showing me:

It’s too soon to say what IT is.

Right now, IT is like a web a spider is weaving. The crux of the deception is at the center, and Satan is the spider.

spider web

He has started by running long filaments out from the center.  They go in many different directions, like spokes of a wheel.  On the surface (at the outermost points where these spokes attach to branches, buildings, etc.) they seem to be unrelated, but they are connected at the core.

The spokes represent various deceptive ideas which mature into the core doctrines of various belief systems, or  ‘-isms’  (Mormonism, Communism, Environmentalism, Socialism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Islam-ism, etc.).  Again, on the surface, at their farthest points (the beliefs they were founded upon), they don’t seem to have much in common.

After putting all the ‘spokes’ in place, Satan has begun the slow and deliberate process of weaving them together. This tapestry of threads, that join spoke to spoke, represents the ‘-isms’ themselves, that form around the deceptive doctrines.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHm_iXHsSVQ

As the spider joins them together, working from the outside in, you will notice that the ‘spokes’ come closer and closer together, at the center, as the web is completed.  Eventually, as each of these ‘-isms’ matures, it will lead its followers to the same conclusion and belief.  Today, the religions and political belief systems of the world are drawing closer and closer to one another.

I am sorry to say that the denominations of Christianity each have a spoke of deception running through their midst as well.  This is why the different denominations are devolving into mindsets that are parallel to the beliefs of nonChristian religions and political belief systems.  Satan cleverly infiltrated the church long ago.

The completed web, in its totality, is what God refers to as the Great Delusion of the last days.  Right now, few of us are able to see exactly what it will look like when it is completed–but by understanding the core, we can have a pretty good idea.  Each of us knows in part, and speculates in part (or, if we are yielded to God and grounded in His Word, ‘we know in part and we prophecy in part’). As time goes on, it is coming into sharper focus–for those who have ‘eyes to see’.

All who do not know their God and love ONLY truth, will be ensnared in some part of the web. The thing that most people don’t realize, is that many are already caught in the web–and some have been caught in it for a very long time.

This isn’t something that will some day just appear in its full form and then people will start getting caught–it has been in the works for a long time, and people have been getting snared in it from the start!!

While Christians are disputing which -ism is going to be THE one, or which one we need to worry the most about, or which we should fight today, Satan continues his work.

What we need to understand is that we need to cast down EVERYTHING that exalts itself against the truth of God.

It is important that we have not become ensnared in the web ourselves.  Every belief we hold, that is not supported by the Word of God–that is not absolute truth–is a little sticky strand that holds us to the web of deception too!

God has shown each of us different pieces.  Different little groups of believers are scattered about near different parts of the web. Once we are sure that we have disentangled ourselves from the web, then we must each work to expose the deceptions that we are aware of, those that we understand, so that we can help pluck others out of Satan’s web of lies.  We can ‘shine a light’ on the part of the web nearest us, to help prevent others from getting caught unawares.

Nevertheless, we must always be careful that we don’t become ensnared again, either in some other part of the web, or by ‘new revelations’ that are being woven into it.

It is God’s will that the web exist–even if we put our concerted effort, all of us working in unison, to tearing the whole thing down, we couldn’t.

We each need to work where God has placed us–freeing those whom we can, giving respect to our brethren who are doing the same thing at other places on the web, and being careful that we don’t again find ourselves entangled in it.

 

Update 7/29/11:

Here is a link to an awesome video that confirms the commonality of all religions and who is being worshiped.  It will answer a lot of questions you didn’t even know you had.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITzDHXiS86g

We are living in times of great deception!!  Christians CAN be deceived–it happens every day!!  Can any of you really say it has never happened to you–even about small things?  You may say ‘oh, it wasn’t anything important’, but I say: If you can be deceived even about LITTLE things, what makes you think you can’t be deceived about big things too?  The bigger the deception, the greater the ‘Satanic annointing’ that goes with it!!

I believe there are two important ways we can reduce the chances of being deceived–but I want to put them at the end of this post.

Many ‘rules’ have been put in place, as to how we should behave, that are not entirely scriptural.  Each one, by itself, may not seem important, but once woven together they have created a strong web for funneling believers into deception.

Here I’m talking about little strands like:

  • ‘don’t discuss religion or politics’
  • ‘we must be politically correct’
  • ‘everyone is entitled to their own opinion’

When the Antichrist fully comes into power, you can bet that these ‘rules’ will not be kept by Him or his followers!  In the meantime, however, they have served to keep believers in line because we want to ‘be good’ and ‘do the right thing’ and not offend anyone, etc.

But look what has come out of this–great deception and spiritual confusion.  If we had continued to ‘compare notes’ and discuss doctrine, spiritual fads, etc. we could have stripped these deceptions of their power.  Instead of realizing that we are a BODY that needs all of the parts to operate, we have each become little islands, little independent bodies.

Lets take an outrageous example: Let’s suppose, for a week, you could divide yourself into five parts that would have no communication with one another.  One part would have your eyes–only your vision, the second part would have your ears–only your hearing, the third part would have only your sense of smell, the fourth part would have only your sense of taste, the fifth part would have only your sense of touch.

Next, we’re going to send you on a fabulous, all expense paid trip to Italy.  You’re going to see the sights, savor the food, and live with gusto!  At the end of the week you will return home and recombine the five parts you were divided into.

What a vacation you would have!  The first part would take in all the wonderful sights, but would not experience any of the sounds or smells, or taste the wonderful food.  The second part would hear many unfamiliar sounds, but would not see what they were, or where it was.  The third part would smell many wonderful things, but never taste them. The fourth part would taste many wonderful things, but have no idea how they smelled or what they were, etc.

When you came home and reassembled yourself, you would carry the memories with you.  But would any of those memories make sense?  You might think you had a series of strange experiences–if your brain never realized that the things experienced were meant to be correlated together.  And even if your brain DID finally realize that the information needed to be correlated, how well could it do the job afterwards?

To fully appreciate and understand what you were experiencing, everything had to be correlated together WHILE it was happening.  And so it is for the BODY of Christ.  We are experiencing spiritual events, and the closest any of us is going to come to understanding what is happening is when we all work together.  SOME day we will each have a spiritual body and we will be able to understand and experience the spiritual realm completely–for now, we must work together, connected in HIM (Jesus) who is our head.  (Obviously, without the head, nothing makes sense.)

How much easier it is for us to be led into deception if we don’t communicate and compare notes with one another.

Now, if all the ‘eyes’ get together, they are going to agree about their experiences . . . and if all the ‘ears’ get together, they are going to say that they are all hearing the same thing.  But if we don’t get the ‘eyes’ to compare notes with the ‘ears’, then we really haven’t accomplished much.

When the eyes and the ears get together, we’re going to break one of those little rules: we are going to talk about religion.  And some of the eyes and the ears are going to disagree.  If, however, they understand this is a necessary part of the process of ‘walking in the spirit’, they will work together to throw aside deception and hold onto what is true.  But, if they don’t understand the need to work together, they are likely to rise up in competition, jealousy, and pride.

To work together, we are also going to have to cast off the other two ‘rules’–sometimes what we say is not ‘politically correct’ and that’s just the way it goes.  The truth is not obligated to mold itself to men’s ideas of what is polite and proper.  Also–we are going to have to at least understand that the truth is not of private interpretation.

Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs–but that does not mean that all beliefs are equally valid or correct!!

Any one of us is entitled to settle, even for the most outrageous deception, if we so choose–but we must call that for what it is.  If a person chooses to believe things that do not line up with scripture, they are not merely a Christian with a different opinion–they are a Christian (if they are) who is being deluded!!

This little ‘rule’ is the one that the most Christians seem to have the most trouble with.

God created ONE truth and in that truth there are no divisions.  Everytime there is a group of people that go astray on a point, a denomination forms.  If we were all in perfect understanding of the truth, there would be no denominations–let that sink in!

WE neither create nor determine truth.  GOD has created truth.  It exists!  There IS absolute truth.  It is embodied in His Word.  Anything that contradicts His word is not truth.

The reason I’m talking about this is that truth is foundational.  Truth is not relative, it is not personal, it is not defined by men.  It matters.  Too many people push the topic aside.

Truth is the opposite of deception!  How do we take care not to be deceived, if we don’t take the time to understand that truth is created, determined, and defined by GOD?  We must line ourselves up with HIS truth, else we are deceived already and find ourselves open to every deceiving spirit and false doctrine that comes our way.

All that being said, here are what I believe to be 2 important ways we can reduce our chances of being deceived–well maybe three! We have to realize we CAN be deceived first! After realizing that, we can work to see that it doesn’t happen.

1. ‘Compare notes’ with other Christians
2.  Take it to God in prayer.

Isn’t it enough, just to pray–yes, no, and maybe.  We are a body, and God desires that each of us should have the opportunity to be used by Him.

God often speaks to us through others.  We each have spiritual blind spots.  Sometimes we even refuse to let God speak to our hearts about certain things, when we pray.  It can be much easier to tune out the ‘still small voice’ than the voice of the flesh and blood Christian who sits across the table from us.

Choose wisely who you listen to.  The person who seems the most spiritual, and is always excitedly talking about spiritual things may not be the person who is the most grounded in God’s Word.  Let the person’s life, testimony, and maturity of faith be deciding factors.  Pray God will lead you to ‘safe’, wise, and mature Christians.

You know that guy who always ‘rains on your parade’ . . . the one who points out that something is an urban myth or a hoax, when you try to share the latest frightening news with him?  He might be the guy.

People with discernment can be rather somber and untrusting.  They may not be much fun to be around when you are hyped up from a revival you went to where signs were abounding.  But, they may just be the person who has the spiritual gift of discernment.  Be sure to include them.  (The lesson there is–be a little more cautious about ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ until you’ve talked to them first!  You can save yourself a lot of embarrassment that way!)

I’m not saying you always have to reach a group consensus about everything.  I’m saying–slow down!  Remember that you need to be careful what–and whom–you trust and believe.  Don’t bypass the safeguards that God has put in place for you.  Get grounded in God’s Word, and spend time with others who are.

The idea of ‘new revelation’ is exciting, but also dangerous. God gives us new revelation THROUGH His Word!

Connect with mature believers and don’t be prideful–listen to them!  Be willing to admit you’re wrong.  And, above all, remain humble and submitted to God.  Pray that He will teach you to have discernment, that He will lead and guide you and show you if what you are seeing/hearing is true or not.

This is not an extensive update, but I wanted to present a video, by a mainstream media source (CNN), for those of you who still believe no one but the major networks is credible.

It is titled:  ‘Fukushima ‘still a ticking time bomb”, and was aired on CNN.  Noteworthy quote:  ‘they lied to us’.  (Related video from 5/31/11 ‘We Came Close To Losing Northern Japan’)

(Unfortunately the video is in Adobe Flashplayer format and WordPress will not allow embedding of the video.  The best I can do is give you the link.)

I don’t understand all the implications of this, even though it is a story I have been trying to share for some time now.  We have been exposed to radiation (our initial exposure was most likely March 18-22nd), we are continuing to be exposed to radiation, and we are not being given the facts.

I am not sure what any of us can do for ourselves, because we still don’t know exactly WHICH radioactive elements we have been exposed to, HOW MUCH of them we were exposed to, what we can do to detoxify ourselves (if it’s possible), or how we can minimize further exposure.

More than anything, we need accurate information.  I think that is the place to start.  If you are a Christian–start praying that the story will ‘break’ for real, and that we will begin to get accurate information.

This is just part of the judgment of God on America.  Please hear me–when God judges a nation, He doesn’t hurl down thunderbolts from heaven.  When a nation is blessed by God, it means His hand of protection covers it.  When a nation is under judgment, it means God withdraws His hand of protection.

America has lived under God’s protection for so long, that we have no idea what it is like to be at the mercy of nature, or at the mercy of our enemies.  Because of living so long under God’s blessing, we became arrogant and started to believe we were blessed,  successful, and prosperous because of our own goodness.  Yet, at the same time, our society has become more depraved, more perverse, more wicked, more violent, and more arrogant than ever.

God has sent ‘Watchmen’ with a message for America:

Stop and repent of your sins.  God cannot continue to bless and shelter a nation that has become so disobedient.  If you will not repent, God’s judgment will come.

It is a simple message, that so far has gone unheeded.  Consequently, judgment has begun.  The situation at Fukushima  should wake us up to the fact that no matter how much food we store up, no matter how deep we dig our bunkers, things are going to come that we never expected or prepared for.

America–why go to such great lengths to try to spare ourselves from the effects of judgment, if can simply repent and God will turn back the judgment instead?

Fukushima Update 6-17-11

5-13-11 Fukushima Update

It Looks Like It’s Going To Be A ‘Hot’ Summer

If you want to know the truth, you are going to have to look for it.  The mainstream media seems to have been transformed into the propaganda arm of the US government.  The reports I see show that things are far worse, in regards to Fukushima, than we are being told.  I’ll give a brief overview, but there’s more than I can cover.

Citizens in Japan have begun testing and compiling their own dataChildren have been getting sick outside the ‘danger zone’An earless rabbit was born near the damaged nuclear plant, and now three earless rabbits have been born in southwestern China–not in the direction the wind usually blows.

Three reactors melted down in the early hours following the March earthquake and tsunami.  An explosion occurred several days later, in reactor #3, that appears to have released a large amount of various radioactive particles into the atmosphere.

(At that time, if I remember correctly, the jet stream took the particles across the Pacific Ocean, through Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, then looped far north into Canada and came down over the northeastern U.S.)

Radioactive iodine was later detected at unsafe levels in rainwater in various U.S. locations and made it into tap water, at high levels, in some places.  Philadelphia was one of those places, and they are now questioning a ten week spike in infant mortality there (the video appears to have been removed from the main Fox news site).

Most recently, two days ago, there appears to have been another large release of radioactivity from the spent fuel pool at reactor #4.  (skip ahead to about 1:45–it continues from there)  Depending on the wind patterns, that release may already be reaching Alaska and/or the U.S. west coast.

This isn’t going to be resolved for many months, or even years, from the look of it.  A filtration system, that was supposed to remove radioactive cesium from  contaminated water at the site, reached its capacity after just a few hours–rather than months, as had been expected.  Levels of radiation at reactors one and two appear to be rising.  There is widespread contamination of groundwater.  Curium-244 has been detected (this element requires a lead shield 20 times thicker than what is needed to protect against radiation from plutonium-238).

The sum total of all the information is that the plant is too hot to cover or contain–and will continue to be for quite some time.  Further explosions are still possible.  Radiation is constantly being released into the air and water.  The contamination is widespread.  (I even read somewhere that it had not taken long for it to reach the southern hemisphere.  I recall seeing an image of a giant storm rotating in the Pacific that was actually causing the wind to reverse its usual direction in some places.  I don’t know if that storm was responsible or not, but it was definitely mixing the air between the northern and southern hemispheres.)

It is not by accident that the news was withheld.  The more we learn, the harder it is to wrap our minds around the immensity of this disaster and its implications for all of us.  The news will continue to leak out slowly.

Apparently the clever psychological strategy being followed is to widely deny, downplay, or suppress the information in the early days then, several weeks later, some reports are given that show that things were a bit worse than first thought, several weeks beyond that, a few reports show that even those reports were optimistic, etc.  This is just one way that information is manipulated.  (As much as I hate these tactics, I can understand why.  Having spent almost two years trying to show people what’s going on, I’ve found that very few people want to know, and most people can’t handle the truth if the news is bad.)

Because the decision was made for the EPA to pretty much stop monitoring, we really don’t know how much exposure any of us has had.  My suggestion, if you live in Alaska (especially), or the west coast of the U.S., is to find some way to be tested for radiation exposure–and share the findings.  As in Japan, the truth probably isn’t going to come out until concerned individuals take matters into their own hands, to do testing and to share the results.

We don’t know which, of a number of radioactive elements, we may have been exposed to–nor do we know what effect it will have on our health.  This summer, we will begin learning of different animals whose offspring are born abnormal.  In the fall, most assuredly, Japanese babies will begin being born that are not normal or don’t survive.  Unfortunately, some newborn babies in the U.S., and even around the world, are going to show the effects of their exposure, as they were developing in their mother’s womb.

Now all this is bad enough, and I wish it was the end of the story . . . but, as things appear right now, there is potentially more bad news on the horizon–and closer to home.

Right now we are experiencing tremendous flooding throughout the midwest.  Several dams have been pushed to their limits and the water continues to rise.  One of these places is near Omaha, near the Missouri River, where the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant has been encircled by floodwaters.

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant (at bottom of photo)

I have not been following the story closely, but I know that there have already been some problems there.  The press, understandably, has been trying to downplay any danger.  (As one forum participant noted “Whenever a government official uses the words “rumor” and/or “conspiracy theory”, I assume that the rumor is true and they are trying to do some spin control.”)

The impending disaster seems to be the eight feet of snow on the ground (upstream) in Montana, rains from the past few weeks that are still moving downstream from their source, and heavy rains forecast for the next few days.  As I mentioned, most of the dam reservoirs are already at capacity.

Both the Fukushima and the Fort Calhoun stories are playing out as I write this post.  I have found the information on a site called ‘enenews.com‘.  It collects information from a wide variety of sources,  gives brief summaries which are easy to keep up with, and links to the original stories.

By the time most of you read this, more will be happening.  I urge you to keep up with the news yourself–it’s out there, but it’s not going to come to your TV screen via cable!

In most American Christian circles today, it is near heresy to say anything critical of the nation of Israel.  But it is important that our desire to do right, and to please God, be guided by wisdom and understanding.

Whether or not they offend you, I ask that you prayerfully read and consider the words of Pastor Rick Wiles.  The following is an excerpt from a broadcast on 6/10/11.

“I know this will come as a shock to Pastor John Hagee and all the Christian Zionists, but thousands of sodomites marched in the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today.  You know, American Christians donate millions of dollars every year to Pastor Hagee so he can give it to Israel.  And  he doesn’t give it to Christians in the Middle East, whose families have been there for two thousand years, and he doesn’t give it to the Jews who believe in the name of Jesus Christ that they may evangelize their fellow Jews.  No, Pastor Hagee gives it to the Israelis who despise Jesus Christ.  It doesn’t make sense does it?

And while millions of American Christians worship the state of Israel like a golden idol, the Israelis themselves are promoting homosexuality–and I thought they are God’s chosen people.  No wonder the Bible calls Jerusalem ‘Sodom and Egypt’ in the last days.

So when will the American church discard this unbiblical theology and realize that if we do not preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to the Jews in Israel, they will burn in the Lake of Fire? So, if you say you love them, why don’t you tell them about Jesus?

Well anyway, thousands of homosexuals and lesbians, including drag queens, marched through the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today, marking the conclusion of Israel’s ‘Gay Pride Week’.  The sodomy celebration started in Golda Meir Park, named after  the former Prime Minister.  Numerous Israeli politicians spoke to the Jewish homosexuals including Tel Aviv’s mayor, and various members of the City Council.

Tzipi Livni, former cabinet minister, said that all of Israel’s leaders and political parties were obligated to the struggle for equality for homosexuals.  She said “I have come to say that being part of the gay community, to be gay or lesbian or any other member of the community, is not a political choice, as is the choice to protect the gay community and its right for social equality.”  Livni added that “we are here to fight together against any phenomenon of hate, to fight for Israel’s values.”

So, Israel’s values is homosexuality, according to this high-ranking government official.  Member of the Knesset, Nitzan Horowitz, slammed the protest against the gay pride parade saying ” those who speak of an abomination, the abomination is their and he who speaks about illness, he is the sick one”.

So, this Jewish member of the Knesset said anybody who quotes the Bible, and says that homosexuality is an abomination–that person is the abomination.  And if you say it’s a sickness, you’re the one who is sick.

Now somebody should tell the people in Israel that Iran is getting ready to attack them, and they may want to repent of their homosexuality and idolatry before the bombs start flying and the tanks start rolling.

The Israeli Defense Force openly permits homosexuals to serve in the military, and there are thousands of gays in the Israeli army, including many senior Israeli officers.  But can you imagine King David going to war with homosexuals in his army?

Instead of blindly supporting Israel, the church of Jesus Christ should be crying out for the Jews to repent, to turn from their wicked sins, because there is no hope for them, except salvation through Jesus Christ.

And there is a big lie that is told every day on Christian TV and radio programs, and every week in thousands of churches.  It says that America’s security and prosperity depend upon the USA standing with Israel, and that is a lie.  Our security and prosperity depend upon the USA obeying the commandments of God!

Our right standing with God is not based upon us militarily backing a country that celebrates homosexuality and perversion, and denounces Christianity, and bans the conversion of Jews in the country.  The Israelis are spiritually lost, and they are no different today than the Israelites who were dancing around the golden calf when Moses came down from the mountain with the ten commandments written in stone.  So why would God expect us to uphold their rebellion?

America is under judgment right now, and it isn’t because we have turned our back on Israel in the Middle East.  We have turned our back on God, that’s the problem!  God doesn’t give permission to any nation to rebel against His commandments, and Jesus Christ is coming, in power and glory, to judge all the nations, and that includes the USA and Israel.  You will not be saved because you waved a Star of David flag from your front porch, or hung one on your church podium.  You will be saved because the blood of Jesus Christ marks your soul.

And I hear preachers on TV and radio all the time, extolling Israel like it’s an idol.  But the Bible says God retains the prerogative to bless or curse any nation, based on their obedience to Him, and modern day Israel is not obedient, and neither is the USA–and the only thing keeping the USA from collapsing is that there is still a sizable number of blood washed, born again, Spirit filled Christians in this land, who love the Lord with all their hearts, and are grieved over the sins of this nation.

Now, Jeremiah 18 says

“the word, which came to Jeremiah, from the Lord saying ‘Arise and go down to the potter’s house.  I will cause you to hear my words.’  Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was making something at the wheel.  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter, so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.  Then the word of the Lord came to me saying ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .”

No, He didn’t say ‘Oh house of Iran, oh house of Persia, oh house of the Palestinians, He said ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .

“‘can I not do with you as this potter?’ says the Lord.  ‘Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, oh house of Israel.  The instant I speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up, to pull down and destroy it, if that nation, against whom I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.

And the instant I speak, concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in my sight, so that it does not obey my voice, then I will relent concerning the good which I said I would benefit it.  Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem’ . . .”

He didn’t say ‘Moscow’, He didn’t say ‘Beijing’.  He is speaking to the people in Jerusalem.  He is literally speaking to the whole world saying

“‘thus says the Lord, behold I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you.  Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.'”

Now what did they say?  The Bible says in Jeremiah 18 they said

“that is hopeless, so we will walk according to our own plans and we will, every one, obey the dictates of his evil heart.

Therefore, thus says the Lord ‘And now, among the Gentiles, who has heard such things?  The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.  Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon, which comes from the rock of the field, will the cold water be forsaken for strange water?  Because my people have forgotten me, and they have burned incense to worthless to idols, and they have caused themselves to stumble from the ancient paths, to walk in the paths and not on the highway, to make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing.  Everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head.  I will scatter them, as with an east wind, before the enemy.  I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity'”.

My friend, if you want to pray for Israel, pray for the true Israel–the Jews, and the Caucasians, and the Africans, and the Asians, and the Latinos, and all the races of men and women on the Earth who believe on the holy name of Jesus Christ, the son of the God of Israel.  Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people.”

Pastor Rick Wiles  (from TruNews broadcast, 6-10-11)

If a nation–any nation–is doing things that displease God, do you really think that He will curse us if we do not continue to support their agenda?  By no means!  What He expects us to do, if we wish to be a blessing to them, is to pray for them and call them back to Him!!

The world is become more polarized towards the nation of Israel.  Anti-semitism is increasing, fueled by a concerted effort to put the Palestinian issue front and center.  National leaders continue to push for a Middle East peace treaty and talk about dividing Jerusalem.  In the churches, almost everyone hears:  ‘God will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel.”

How does God want us to bless Israel?  What do people mean when they angrily decry ‘Zionism’?  Is there any truth to conspiracy theories about wealthy and politically connected Jews, central bankers, and Bilderbergers, etc.?  Or is this merely slander directed at the people God loves?

The answers to these questions are important for all Christians to know, as Satan escalates his war on the people of God.  The eyes of the world are on the nation of Israel, because events there show us our place in God’s prophetic timetable.  We all need to learn as much as we can because, in these ‘latter days’, nothing is quite the way it seems.
