In case you wonder why the United States is hated by so many people around the world . . . here is credible documentation about our ‘involvement’ in their countries.  Our actions there have been ‘coming home [to America] to roost’ for at least a decade now.

A Prophecy For The Elite

‘ Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.  Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire.

You have hoarded wealth in the last days.  Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.

You have lived on earth in luxury and self‑indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.’  (James 5:1-6)

I’m fairly certain everyone will find something to hate in this post.  Some of you may even write me off as a heretic–or evil–before you’ve finished reading.  But, I believe there are some things that need to be said.

Star of David

I am not an anti-Semite.  I am not bashing Jews.  I am not cursing Israel.  Until the last year or two, I was totally unaware of whether any particular person was Jewish or not.  Paying attention to such things has never been part of how I related to people.

Nothing had changed in my circumstances, but it began to be more and more a part of my perception.  Out of the blue, I was realizing that certain people, or certain traits, were Jewish.  I sensed that satan (lucifer) was behind this sudden awareness, and realized he was probably beginning to stir up opposition towards Jews.  I didn’t take the bait.

As a Christian, I had been thoroughly schooled in the belief that whoever blesses Israel, will be blessed–but whoever curses Israel will be cursed.  I had an absolute reverence for Jewish people, and shut my ears to anything said against them (as some of you may be doing now).

But, in looking into the shadow government (elites, International Bankers, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Illuminati, New World Order, etc.), it soon became fairly obvious that a lot of the players were Jewish.  I guess it was then, that I allowed for the possibility that not all Jews are righteous.

Now, you may think that’s blatantly obvious, but I believe that same blind reverence is an attitude many Christians have towards Jews!  In fact, several months back, I witnessed Sean Hannity interviewing someone who was talking about the shadow government.  What he was sharing lined up with what I had learned.  But when he made the point that there were Jews involved, Hannity completely cut him off (and seemed to close his mind to everything else that he was trying to say), and prevented him from continuing.

Christians–being Jewish does not give one an exemption from God’s law!!  You should know God’s nature well enough to know that He does not condone it when His people sin, be they Christians or Jews!  Do you not know God’s character: righteous, pure and just?  Do you really believe that you would be cursed for speaking the truth? for exposing evil?  God is not politically correct!  Exposing the evil plots of  a few sinful Jewish  men does not qualify as ‘cursing Israel’!!

I don’t believe it is of any great significance that many of these men are Jews.  It is clear, all through the Bible, that Jews are just as human and prone to sin as Gentiles. What I do believe is significant is the propensity of Christians to behave as if Jews can do no wrong–lest God punish them!    I believe this whole misinterpretation of the blessing/cursing admonition has raised it to the level of superstition–a fear motivated belief.

This voluntary blindness,  toward wrongdoing by anyone Jewish,  reveals a troubling and fundamental misunderstanding of God’s character.  God does not want us to turn a blind eye to evil, no matter who is involved!  God has chosen the descendants of Jacob/Israel–but not all of them have chosen him!!  Time and again, God has chosen to bring down judgment upon those Israelites who rebelled against Him.

The point I am trying to make, is that we are living in times of extreme deception.  Many evildoers are conspiring against the innocent.  We should be exposing, and battling, sin and corruption. Lets stop turning a blind eye to anyone’s sin, on the basis of their ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, popularity, or whatever.  We are all prone to sin!!  No one gets a pass!  We all need to repent!!  We all need Jesus to forgive us and cleanse us of our sin.

And . . . satan/lucifer is provoking opposition, in the hearts of men, against all of God’s people.  You are wise to guard your heart against his murmurings and insinuations.  Be careful that you too, do not turn your heart against those whom God has chosen.

It is my opinion that this is in America’s not-too-distant future:

(this is the video a Russian company is using to market their product)

It is also my opinion that our dear leader has made alliances with communist dictators in other countries, and that he is sending them signals to launch an attack against America, in order to help implement the breakdown of America and to give justification for activating the new government that he has been building for Amerika.

These signals (permissions) are all of the recent moves that he has made to disarm America and make her vulnerable, and to greatly handicap any ability for us to prevent an attack.

I believe that our enemies will use proxies–rebel groups such as Hezbollah, etc.–to do the deed. They will supply them with the weapons and let them commit the attack and claim responsibility.

Statue of Liberty

The light of the lamp of liberty

 

I believe that New York City will be decimated. Other points will be hit too, but primarily the disaster will be the complete annhiliation of New York City.  It will be rendered uninhabitable.  The other cities will be rebuilt.  America will survive.  I believe this is the fulfillment of Revelation 18.

I believe, where we are right now, is in verses 1-3:

“After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven.  He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor.  With a mighty voice he shouted:

“Fallen!  Fallen is Babylon the Great!  She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.  For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.  The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.””

The Lord has been revealing to America the vile shadow government that has been operating behind the scenes, and the corruption, and involvement of our multinational corporations.

Next, He will warn Christians and call them out (verse 4-5):

“then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“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; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.”

Revelation 18:23

“The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s great men. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.”

You can read the entire passage here: Revelation 18

Again, these are my interpretations and opinions of what is soon to come.

We Are Living In Revelation

Truth And Light-Nowhere To Run, No Place To Hide

Is The Transformation To Communism Already Well Underway?

Well, well, well . . . isn’t this interesting?

Far and away, my most popular post has been Did We Do This? (Haiti Earthquake, part 2) Sure, it was interesting to me too, at the time.  But it has been a little puzzling to me, in light of all the other events that are more in the forefront these days, that this particular blog should receive so much attention.

So, with that question in the back of my mind, when I came across The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti (by F. William Engdahl, 30 January 2010), I had to read it.  All of the following excerpts are taken from it–all emphases are mine.  (Please read the original article in its entirety, it contains links to all sources cited.)

“Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world’s richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas-outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuela.

Haiti, and the larger island of Hispaniola of which it is a part, has the geological fate that it straddles one of the world’s most active geological zones . . .

This vast mass of underwater plates are in constant motion, rubbing against each other . . .

The regions of convergence of such plates are also areas where vast volumes of oil and gas can be pushed upwards from the Earth’s mantle.”

(Could it be that we did indeed use HAARP to give the unstable geology there a little ‘push’?  And, I wonder if an earthquake might help bring the oil and gas a bit closer to the surface, where it would cost less to tap it?  )

“Aside from being prone to violent earthquakes, Haiti also happens to lie in a zone that, due to the unusual geographical intersection of its three tectonic plates, might well be straddling one of the world’s largest unexplored zones of oil and gas, as well as of valuable rare strategic minerals. The vast oil reserves of the Persian Gulf and of the region from the Red Sea into the Gulf of Aden are at a similar convergence zone of large tectonic plates, as are such oil-rich zones as Indonesia and the waters off the coast of California.”

“Notably, in 2005, a year after the Bush-Cheney Administration de facto deposed the democratically elected President of Haiti, Jean-Baptiste Aristide, a team of geologists from the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas began an ambitious and thorough two-phase mapping of all geological data of the Caribbean Basins. The project is due to be completed in 2011. Directed by Dr. Paul Mann, it is called “Caribbean Basins, Tectonics and Hydrocarbons.” It is all about determining as precisely as possible the relation between tectonic plates in the Caribbean and the potential for hydrocarbons―oil and gas.

(Now, who was it that had ties to Texas . . . ?)

Notably, the sponsors of the multi-million dollar research project under Mann are the world’s largest oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, the Anglo-Dutch Shell and BHP Billiton. . .

it is surprising that the region had not been mapped earlier. Now it emerges that major oil companies were at least generally aware of the huge oil potential of the region long ago, but apparently decided to keep it quiet.”

In October 2008 a consortium of oil companies led by Spain’s Repsol, together with Cuba’s state oil company, Cubapetroleo, announced discovery of one of the world’s largest oilfields in the deep water off Cuba. It is what oil geologists call a ‘Super-giant’ field. Estimates are that the Cuban field contains as much as 20 billion barrels of oil, making it the twelfth Super-giant oilfield discovered since 1996. The discovery also likely makes Cuba a new high-priority target for Pentagon destabilization and other nasty operations.

No doubt to the dismay of Washington, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev flew to Havana one month after the Cuban giant oil find to sign an agreement with acting-President Raul Castro for Russian oil companies to explore and develop Cuban oil.

Medvedev’s Russia-Cuba oil agreements came only a week after the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to meet the recuperating Fidel Castro and his brother Raul. The Chinese President signed an agreement to modernize Cuban ports and discussed Chinese purchase of Cuban raw materials. No doubt the mammoth new Cuban oil discovery was high on the Chinese agenda with Cuba.”

(Could competition be a motive to move quickly on this?)

“The remarkable geography of Haiti and Cuba and the discovery of world-class oil reserves in the waters off Cuba lend credence to anecdotal accounts of major oil discoveries in several parts of Haitian territory. It also could explain why two Bush Presidents and now special UN Haiti Envoy Bill Clinton have made Haiti such a priority. As well, it could explain why Washington and its NGO’s moved so quickly to remove– twice– the democratically elected President Aristide, whose economic program for Haiti included, among other items, proposals for developing Haitian natural resources for the benefit of the Haitian people.”

“In an interview with a Santo Domingo online paper, Leopoldo Espaillat Nanita, former head of the Dominican Petroleum Refinery (REFIDOMSA) stated, “there is a multinational conspiracy to illegally take the mineral resources of the Haitian people.” Haiti’s minerals include gold, the valuable strategic metal iridium and oil, apparently lots of it.”

” . . . when Aristide was President — up until his US-backed ouster during the Bush era in 2004 — he had developed and published in book form his national development plans. These plans included, for the first time, a detailed list of known sites where the resources of Haiti were located. The publication of the plan sparked a national debate over Haitian radio and in the media about the future of the country. Aristide’s plan was to implement a public-private partnership to ensure that the development of Haiti’s oil, gold and other valuable resources would benefit the national economy and the broader population, and not merely the five Haitian oligarchic families and their US backers, the so-called Chimeres or gangsters.

Since the ouster of Aristide in 2004, Haiti has been an occupied country, with a dubiously-elected President, Rene Preval, a controversial follower of IMF privatization mandates and reportedly tied to the Chimeres or Haitian oligarchs who backed the removal of Aristide. Notably, the US State Department refuses to permit the return of Aristide from South African exile.

Now, in the wake of the devastating earthquake of January 12, the United States military has taken control of Haiti’s four airports and presently has some 20,000 troops in the country. Journalists and international aid organizations have accused the US military of being more concerned with imposing military control, which it prefers  to call “security,” than with bringing urgently needed water, food and medicine from the airport sites to the population.

A US military occupation of Haiti under the guise of earthquake disaster ‘relief’ would give Washington and private business interests tied to it a geopolitical prize of the first order.”

Prelude To: Did We Do This?

Where do I even begin?

Several months ago, the question occured to me “I wonder if earthquakes can be created?”.  Of course, I was thinking along the lines of underground nuclear explosions, etc.  Well, I found a lot more than I bargained for.  Granted, a lot of it sounds far-fetched to the average person, but I do have a college degree in science and I think I have learned enough to at least rule out the utterly ridiculous.  Of course, I am not an expert, and can not say with absolute certainty that any of what I’ve learned is true–but based on what I know, and my intuition, and prayers for God to guide me, I believe that it is.

The amount of ‘stuff’ that is going on behind the scenes is incredible!  I have never ruled out conspiracy theories simply because they were theories of conspiracies. (Some people seem to think conspiracies can’t possibly be true.)  As far as I understand, a conspiracy is a plan, between two or more people, to do something that is wrong.  How can that be impossible?–we see it happen every day!!  So, I weigh any conspiracy theory on its own merits.  (Even so, there are some that seem so far-fetched that I dread looking into them!)

A few years back, the Lord pulled the blinders off my eyes.  Up until that time, I had always looked for the best in everyone, believed whatever I was told, and given everyone the benefit of the doubt.  However, I learned that no one can be completely trusted, mankind is not inherently good and, in fact, some people are just plain evil!  In spite of all the corruption that has been revealed, in our leaders, in the last couple of years, some of you have not yet had that revelation–you will probably not believe the things that I will be sharing with you.

One other thing you should know about me–I have never been one to follow the crowd.  A lot of what I write about is probably not news to some of you–but others of you may think I’m just one more person in some kind of community of wackos, where all of us are just saying the same thing.  (In fact, I have that opinion, true or not, of some of the people who are sharing the information I’m learning from!  And I don’t agree with everything everyone says–I measure it against my knowledge of God’s word, what I already know, etc.)

However, the only communication I have with anyone else who shares any of these beliefs, is through several comments I’ve received through this site and my responses to them, which are posted on this site.  I am a virtual hermit.  I have a few friends I see on rare occasion, and I have some family.  To the best of my knowledge, of these people, only one friend reads my blogs.  My family and friends are either not interested in, or are too distressed by the things I am learning, to discuss them with me.  The only sites I visit regularly are posted as links, in the right column of this page–and I watch Glenn Beck, although I don’t agree with everything he says.

In fact, my ‘education’ in all of what is going on, began about a year and a half ago with him.  I had been watching Fox News regularly, but grew VERY tired of all the political commentary and speculation.  Feeling like I wasn’t getting the real news of what was going on in the world, I started looking elsewhere and discovered Glenn Beck on CNN.  I remember being surprised, because I was of the opinion that CNN was not a conservative news source, and yet he shared most of my opinions!  He was also revealing things that I was  learning about elsewhere.

The other main source of learning for me comes from Steven Collins’ website (to which I have a link in the right column).  I was asleep one morning when suddenly Fox News came on my computer (I have no idea how.  I had watched it the night before online, and the browser page was still open, but the video connection had been shut off).  Anyhow–the news came on and woke me, with the commentator saying something that caused me to jump out of bed.  To the best of my recollection, it was about 2 countries that were conducting joint military exercises. I had to ‘google’ the names of these 2 countries, along with the word ‘prophecy’, because I had a feeling it was something that I had heard before, regarding events prophesied to happen in the ‘end times’.  I had no idea of the journey I was about to embark upon.

When the Google search results came back, I realized I had a potential problem–how could I know which site(s) would actually have accurate information?  I prayed for God to lead me, and chose Stephen Collins’ site.  Neverthless, I didn’t throw out my discernment.

In subsequent days, I read and learned a lot, but I was still skeptical.  He apparently believes that the US is descended from the ‘lost’ 10 tribes of Israel.  This is something I had learned about (and believed) as a teenager–before I ever found Christ–by reading Herbert W. Armstrong materials (The Worldwide Church of God).  My mother told me it was a cult.  I don’t know if that is true or not, but at the time I believed her and threw the things away.

So,  when I read these assertions on his site, I was skeptical and I worried about his credibility, and possible connection to the WWCoG.  (I decided to get more info about Herbert W. Armstrong, and I have to say that I would still be skeptical of any of his teachings.  However, Mr. Collins, as far as I can tell, is not a follower of Mr. Armstrong.  Because of what I’ve read of his writings, and additional information I have found, I am about 98% convinced that the 10 ‘lost’ tribes of Israel are not really lost at all, and that the US represents the tribe of Manasseh.)

I continued to read his articles and posts, with caution.  Eventually I became convinced (although I am not absolutely sure of everything he proposes) that his site is probably ‘safe’, and I have learned a lot there.  As with any site, if you decide to check it out, use your own discretion and prayer.  Mainly he keeps up with current happenings, that you may not get news of elsewhere–and correlates these events with prophecy.

So, I’ve said all that to illustrate that I don’t have an agenda, and I am not just parroting the beliefs of some cult or bunch of wackos.  I have felt, from the beginning, that it has been God leading me to what I am learning, because of the way that it started–and has continued.  There is not one single website where I have gone and learned all of this.  It has been a journey, with God taking me from one site to another, teaching me the right things at the right time.

In fact–some of what I have learned is from movies I watched, for entertainment sake, that ended up confirming things I had learned or leading me to the next thing.  One of those movies–a story of two illusionists, introduced me to Nikola Tesla.  When I found reference to him, a little further along in my journey, I already had knowledge of him and his work.  When God is leading you, you know it–not by where you arrive, but by how He leads you along the way.

I feel I need to make that clear, because it looks to me, like a lot of the things I’ll be talking about in the future would be easy to dismiss out of hand.  Of course you need to pray and use your discernment regarding the truth of what I’m saying, and how it all fits together, but I hope I have explained myself enough that you will at least be willing to listen to what I have to say.

It was never my intention to start a blog–I just had to vent.  The more I learned about things that were happening, the more upset I became.  So, I started blogging.  I have always enjoyed teaching about things that interest me, so I have continued with this.  I know there are only about fifteen (at most) of you reading this, but that’s fine.  (Jesus said there would be ‘few’ that actually find the way, that ‘many’ travel the broad path to destruction, so I don’t underestimate the value of reaching only a few.)  I also know that He leads people to what He wants to teach them, so I trust that if you are here, He has led you.  You may only visit my site to learn one thing, or He may park you here for awhile.

I don’t claim to be a prophet–a watchman perhaps.  I have just seen, throughout my life, that in many things I happen to be a step ahead of the crowd.  I am not saying I should be followed.  I’m not saying I’m special at all.  I’m just saying I tend to become aware of things a little bit sooner than most people–and right now, time is of the essence.  So, I’ll share what I am learning with you, and trust that you will use prayer and discretion to decide for yourself.

The last couple of days I have looked into a lot of things, and I’ve learned a lot.  So much in fact, that yesterday I had to just shut everything off and have silence for a few hours–because I was so overwhelmed with what I had learned.  I just couldn’t absorb anymore.  I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way before.  There were several things I wanted to write posts about, but I just couldn’t.  I had no idea where to begin.

Today I received an e-newsletter from Chuck Baldwin.  It ties in with some of what I have just learned, so I’m going to write another post and link this one to it.  It concerns earthquakes, Indonesia, Venezuela and more–I won’t know for sure until I write it!!  Please check it out:

Did We Do This? (Haiti Earthquake, part 1)

Truly, ignorance IS bliss.  However, the hour is late, so–may your eyes be opened to the truth, and may the truth set you free!

Why Haiti?

Is Your TV Stealing Your Soul?

I’m enjoying a pleasant, late summer lunch with a couple of friends. Despite two of my six kids bickering a bit, and the yard needing mowed, and a leaky faucet dripping, I’m pretty content. You might even say I’ve gotten a bit lazy, spending a lot of afternoons napping in my hammock.

We’re joking around when I notice something different. We’ve been beset by the usual assortment of wasps and yellow jackets, but there’s one here I’ve never seen before. I first notice it as I go to take a bite of my burger. This guy is nearly inside and is wrestling with a piece of meat that it has apparently chewed loose. Something about his manner convinces me to just let him have it. Hoping that will be the end of it, I go back to my conversation.

Suddenly, my friend Miguel leaps out of his seat with a look of terror on his face. We can’t persuade him to sit down and for a couple of minutes, we can’t even get him to speak coherently. He pulls us towards the house, ranting about his village. As far as I know, he’s from LA. Finally we get him to take a breath and start over.

He tells us how, one spring when he was a boy, he journeyed to the nearest city with his uncle. It was a two day walk. When they returned home, everyone in the village was dead! No one was ever able to figure out what had happened, but there were puncture wounds on the bodies.

While we were eating and joking, a wasp had landed on his plate and it brought those horrible memories rushing back. He remembered seeing a few of these wasps before!  He had watched them building a nest in a tree stump once, when he was just a kid, and he is certain that it was the autumn before his trip to the city with his uncle!  He had never thought anything of it until now, but suddenly he was sure he knew what had happened to his village. Before that autumn, the people of his village had never seen those wasps, and he never saw them again-until now.

‘What wasps?’, our friend Alex keeps asking. Alex is an amateur naturalist, so he really knows his bugs. Overcome by curiosity, he goes back to the table and waits for one to appear. This guy is fearless. I’ve thought about nicknaming him ‘plays-with-bees’. A few minutes later I see him slowly walking backwards, his face very pale. He makes a wide circle around the table and comes back to where we’re waiting.

‘You have really got a problem’, he says. Turns out he had recently read about a particular species of killer wasp. Because they were supposed to be found only in Mexico, he hadn’t paid too much attention. But he felt certain this was the same wasp.

According to him, this species of wasp was predatory, aggressive and more dangerous than killer bees! In late summer a few would search out a good location and set up a nest. Then, during the winter, deep inside the nest, the numbers would explode. In the spring, on the first warm day, they would come out en masse. They were very sensitive to any sort of vibration near their nest, even a voice, and would respond by swarming and attacking. Their sting carried a strong toxin that made it lethal. There was no antivenom.

As abruptly as they appeared, they would disappear. Then in late summer, far away, a few would appear and search out a new location and set up a nest. It was also reported that no known insecticide had any effect on them.

I’m usually pretty calm and logical, but I was starting to panic. That was partly because I was noticing that a few of these wasps were going in and out of a tree stump I hadn’t gotten around to clearing out. The other reason is that the kids had started playing a rowdy game of tag and were running in all directions.

Now, let’s pause a minute. What do you think I did next? Do you think I insisted that Miguel again give me all the details of the spring that all the people of his village had died? Do you think I spent much time debating whether he could really have remembered something he had seen just once, so many years ago? Do you suppose I demanded that Alex provide me the source of his information, or tell me what his credentials were?

Actually, I did, to some extent. And soon I was convinced that both of them knew what they were talking about, were being honest, and their stories were in sync.  Then I sprung into action!

Soon the kids were safely corralled and the three of us were using one of Alex’s nets to catch and kill the wasps. By evening, we were pretty sure we’d gotten them all. Then I doused that stump and set it ablaze!! You see, it made a whole lot more sense to dive into danger and wipe them out while there were just a few, than to let their numbers explode and have it be impossible to overcome them.

The truth is, this didn’t really happen. It’s what we used to call a fable, and at the end of a fable was a moral. So, in case you didn’t catch it, the moral is this:

It is better to dive into danger and tackle a situation when it is small, than to wait until it has grown to such proportions that even tremendous effort is unlikely to result in victory.

So, why did I create this fable? To encourage you to take action now, while it is possible to make a difference! I don’t have time, in this post, to elaborate on what I am saying below. If you are just now hearing that there is a problem in America, please read my other posts for more explanation.

This administration has hijacked the country and is furiously building the framework for a new government. At the same time, forces are at work to destabilize things to the extent that this new government can seize power.

We are standing on the verge of anarchy. New corruption is being revealed every day. The old system is crumbling and it is too corrupt for us to go back to anyway. The new system being built is going to strip us of our rights and freedom to self-govern. If we allow it to continue, it may be impossible to ever defeat!

We must stop what the Obama administration is building, sweep the filth and corruption out of Washington, and reinstitute a stable form of government, free of corruption! And we must do it soon! This is urgent!

We are very vulnerable right now, and will continue to be, until we have established a stable government. Our international enemies are keenly watching our situation, forming alliances and moving into position to attack.

Yes, it is very important to be sure you are getting sound, honest information. But it is also important, after you do, to move quickly!

PLEASE, quickly start doing your own research. Check the facts, find out what is going on. And as soon as you are convinced, dive in! Yes, there is danger now in resisting this but, if we wait, the danger will multiply exponentially and the chances for success will GREATLY diminish!

I see this situation as a cicada (a nasty, ugly beast , in my opinion). It has crawled up out of the ground in the darkness and is still encased in its cocoon/exoskeleton. It cracks and the nasty little beast emerges. It stretches and sits, and waits, while it dries out and hardens. Then it flies away–and good luck if you want to catch it then. You’ve got to catch it some time between when it emerges and when it’s fully formed. This is a very small ‘window of opportunity’ that occurs in the dead of night.

So too, what is going on in our government today has been happening in darkness, but now light is shining on it and revealing the details. The window of opportunity to stop it is small. As soon as you are convinced, please act!

By no means am I advocating violence. We are being baited, in many ways, to do something that will allow them to justify taking drastic action–both against us and in seizing power. Please do not fall into that trap!

Be strong, be bold, be honest and speak out! Do whatever you can by legal means. Oppose every illegal, unconstitutional move they make. Surround them. Push back. Don’t give in. Don’t give up.

**We need our God and our guns–we need God always, and we need our guns, as a last line of defense if we are attacked by our international enemies. Our military personnel are spread far and wide, and are being depleted in the ongoing efforts in the middle East. We need our military back at home now, for our own defense. For that reason, please do all you can to help protect the 2nd amendment-our right to bear arms. An armed populace can be a powerful deterrent to foreign invasion!**

Jesus promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the Church (BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS, NOT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH*).  Do the ‘gates of Hell’ represent the front line of Satan’s war on the Church?  Does it mean that although Satan attacks the Church and backs it into a corner, he won’t win. NO!!!  It means that as the Church attacks the gates of Hell–we will prevail!

But, I have to ask, for the last 50 or so years, who has been battering the gates of whom?  Who has retreated and retreated until, soon, they will be hunkered down behind their gates, trembling at the onslaught?

Tolerance and political correctness are just new terms for ‘surrender’!  Was Jesus politically correct?  Was he tolerant of evil?

A few years ago it was all the rage to ask ‘what would Jesus do’.  When He overturned the tables of the moneychangers and vendors in the temple, that was a clue!  It was also a foreshadowing of the system we are facing today (Babylon the Great), a corrupt alliance of businesses, bankers & politicians, upon whom God’s wrath and judgment will be poured out during the Tribulation.  I am not advocating violence.  I AM advocating boldness!

Jesus left us with the task of sharing the gospel with everyone, and fighting evil. We were to continue doing the work that Jesus had begun and demonstrate the good that God intended for mankind when He placed us here on Earth.

We were to be the salt that protected the world from becoming a place of depravity!  But the ‘salt has lost its saltiness’!  We were to be the light, to keep the world safe because ‘whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open’, yet we have ‘covered our lamp with a bowl’!  The whole world has slid into corruption and gangrenous decay, and we have retreated to a dimly lit corner!!

We have done pretty well at sowing the gospel, but, over time, we have neglected the fight against evil within our own borders.  We have become complacent and choked by the cares of this world.

God established America so that we would have a place from which to manifest His power and goodness to the nations!!  AMERICA wasn’t to be God’s witness to the world–America was to be the place from which the CHURCH could operate most safely and freely, and be His witness to the world!

For each of us, it’s time to decide which side of the fence we are on!  Are we to continue letting evil prevail around us and in our own lives, and lay aside His name?  Or will we clean up our own act (by the power of God within us), live righteously, and wage war on the kingdom of darkness?

God will not bless a lukewarm Christianity–we do dishonor to His name!  For those who want to call themselves ‘Christians’,  it is time to root sin out of our own lives, and expose and fight against evil wherever we encounter it!  Be assured that He is with us–and that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against us!

*The idea that Peter was the first Pope, and that Jesus thus established the Catholic church, is based upon a fundamental misunderstanding of His meaning in Matthew 16:18.  If the verse is read in context, it is seen that the ‘rock’ upon which Christ will build His church is Peter’s declaration that He (Jesus) is ‘the Christ, the Son of the living God’.
