Many preTrib Rapture teachers have TERRIFIED Christians with horrible descriptions of what they believe things will be like during the Tribulation. They paint a picture of a desolate, hopeless existence where God has withdrawn His Spirit from the Earth and any who come to Him are pretty much left to fend for themselves.

Nothing could be further from the truth! God is a loving Father and He will not abandon us in our hour of greatest need.

‘ . . . lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.’ (Jesus, Matt. 28:20)

‘The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.’ (Psalms 34:22)

‘But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.’ (Psalms 37:39-40)

‘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].’ (Daniel 11:32)

‘The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.’ (Nahum 1:7)

Most of those that preach a (false) preTrib Rapture do not understand the wickedness they do. Not only do they create false hope in an escape from tribulation, which is contrary to God’s will . . .

‘These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.’ (Jesus, John 16:33)

‘I pray NOT THAT THOU SHOULDEST TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.’ (Jesus, John 17:15)

. . . but these false teachers create terror and a certainty of being abandoned by God, for those who find themselves still here during the Tribulation. Because of their false teachings, MANY will despair and fall away from the faith.

Please understand their teachings are false, and take heart:

‘ . . . and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother.’ (Proverbs 18:24)

‘ . . . for he hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.’ (Hebrews 13:15)

Who’s Your Daddy?

In spite of much ridicule towards ‘the birthers’ (those who question the eligibility of Obama to be president, based on lack of proof of U.S. birth), I have felt that there is a legitimate issue here.  However, my gut feeling is that rather than Obama being foreign-born, there is some other reason for his failure to produce a birth certificate.

It is believed that narcissism is a way that some people compensate for deep humiliation or shame that they endured as children.  There is little question that Obama is narcissistic.  My suspicion is that there may be a connection between his shame, and the circumstances surrounding his birth.

As I looked into the subject, I ran across some interesting ideas on other blogs.  I moved on, without saving the links, but found myself thinking a lot about some of the info. It was on my mind enough that I tried to replicate my searches to find the sites again, but I couldn’t.  What had stuck with me was a name: Frank Marshall Davis.  After not finding the original sites, I just looked for more info on him.

Frank Marshall Davis, if I remember correctly, was around the age of Obama’s grandfather (Stanley Dunham).  Apparently, before he went off to college, Obama’s grandparents handed him over to Davis to mentor him.  Now, I had not done any research on Stanley Dunham, but I had the impression that Obama was raised in a decent, stable, middle-class family–which happened to be white, since his mother was white.

Davis, on the other hand, seemed to be a seedy character.  He was, among other things, a pornographer.  It is also reported that he was a sex addict, a pervert, a pedophile, a bisexual, and a swinger.  Apparently he had written a pornographic novel based on his experiences.  Davis happens to be black.

To me, something seemed weird about a ‘decent’, white, middle-class man having an association with a black pedophile pornographer, that included them being drinking partners and making trips together (and taking a young Obama with them) to the ‘redlight district’.  Obviously, Stanley Dunham was not the decent, upright man I had envisioned.

It seems that every day we learn about someone else who was not what we had thought them to be, so that’s not too unusual.  What is unusual, however, (at least I assume it is unusual), is a grandfather turning his beloved grandson over to the care of a man like Frank Marshall Davis.

As I tried to understand more about these two men, and the nature of their relationship, I encountered some theories regarding them–and, unexpectedly, they involved questions of who Obama’s father was.  This was becoming more complicated.

My first impression, after learning about Davis being Obama’s mentor, was that there was probably a sexual relationship involved.  I knew that Davis had a role in Obama’s political career, and I assumed this was a ‘price he had paid’ for Davis’ backing and promoting him.  I believed, if this were true, that it could certainly have caused Obama deep shame and humiliation, and could have been an important factor in his abnormal psychological development.

However, the theories I encountered about his parentage were not as easy to dismiss as I had thought.  I found myself pondering them quite a bit.  I don’t remember how much of my theories were proposed in what I had read, and how much were my own ideas, but after pondering it for awhile, I came away with what seem to me like the three most likely possibilities.  I don’t know whether I’ll have time to look into this further, or whether I’ll leave it to someone else to figure it out, but here are the possibilities I propose as most likely, in no particular order:

  1. Stanley Ann Dunham is Obama’s real mother and Obama’s father is a black man she was with in Seattle.  Ann and her parents’ sudden move to Hawaii was to put distance between them.

  2. Frank Marshall Davis is actually Obama’s father, and (Stanley) Ann Dunham is his mother.

  3. Stanley Armour Dunham is Obama’s real father, and a black woman (possibly a prostitute) is his mother.  This could  be a result of his trips to the redlight district, and Davis could be his ongoing connection to the woman–or her connection to Obama. This theory proposes that the family’s move to Hawaii was a cover, and that Ann posed as Obama’s mother for the early years of his life, and then went off to pursue her own ambitions.  In this scenario (as possibly with others) Obama’s real birthdate is not the one commonly reported.  It is said that Stanley badly wanted a son–hence his naming his daughter ‘Stanley’.

In all 3 of the theories, Barack Obama Sr. is not the real father.  It is not implausible that Ann could find a young black student to marry her and pose as Obama’s father.  Perhaps money was involved.

It is an interesting observation of one blogger, that it seems rather strange that Stanley Dunham would have nothing but high praise for the man who had abandoned his daughter and 2 year old grandson.

It is not unusual, but worthy of mention that Obama Sr., a foreign student who must have had some potential, ended up going downhill in his personal life after he left Ann & Obama, becoming an alcoholic and eventually dying in a car wreck.

I may be totally off base, but my impression of many alcoholics is that they are people living with a shameful secret and burden of guilt that they cannot bear.

Update 5/20/11:

Jerome Corsi has uncovered the whole story.  Below are links to a three part interview with him.  Part two gives the most info. on the subject.

You can’t be a follower of Jesus and be a homosexual.

I can’t follow Jesus and be a thief, or a murderer.  If I am a thief and want to follow Jesus, I must leave stealing behind.  If I am a murderer and want to follow Jesus, I must leave killing behind.

When we follow Jesus, we put our ‘flesh’ (sinful desires and actions) to death . . .  deny ourselves . . . ‘die to’ our old selves . . . are ‘born again’ . . . born of the spirit  . . . have a new life . . .  We become new creations!

When we accept Jesus’ death, on our behalf, we must come to Him on His terms. We confess our sins, repent of them, and don’t practice them any longer.  He forgives our sins and washes them away, and we are made new.

You may argue that being a homosexual is who you are–I argue that is who you are because it is what you do.

Contrary to some people’s arguments, people are not born homosexual.  If you have the normal XX or XY chromosomes, your gender is not in question.  (If you ARE a hermaphrodite, or have chromosomal problems, that’s a different story.)

Here are reasons you may not feel comfortable with your gender:

  • The way you are raised and treated.
  • The expectations or prejudices you are exposed to.
  • The popularity and promotion of homosexuality in our culture.
  • Peer pressure.

But here are what I believe are the three most important factors:  being wounded in your early relationships, being molested by someone of the same gender (remembered or  not), demonic influence.

There are a number of ways these factors can work together, although any one of them can lead you to the conclusion, and feeling, that you are gay.  But, when they are combined, their effect is greatly multiplied, and you will feel an almost irresistible pull towards homosexuality.

One of the common ways it plays out is:

1. A child is rejected by his father (living with rejection is more damaging than being abandoned).  Young children trust adults and see them almost as gods.  If a young child is receiving the message, from an adult, that he is not worthy, he may disown himself (or aspects of himself).  If he is a bit older, he may hate the adult and vow not to be like him.  Either way, if a boy does not have a healthy relationship with his father (or an adult male), he will have an emptiness that will cause him to gravitate towards ‘father figures’ in his life.  This may be adult males, or boys that are older than him that seem more masculine to him than he feels.

Here is where a problem begins.  Young, wounded boys are very alluring to predatory men (including pedophiles) and delinquent boys.  A wounded boy is a magnet for sick and perverse males, and he is soon going to end up in bad company.  He doesn’t have to be molested to become homosexual–he may idolize the man or boy he follows, to the extent that he falls in love with him.  The whole issue is that he doesn’t love and accept himself.

The irony is–some well meaning single mothers introduce predatory men into their wounded son’s life, without being aware of it. A single mother has her own issues, and she may be very relieved to have found a man who shows a fatherly interest in her son.

These are the worst situations, because the boy is unable to extricate himself from the relationship, and is unlikely to tell his mother what is happening.  He will likely be at the man’s mercy for many years.  This man, given enough time, will likely mold the boy into a replica of himself.  Undoing the damage, if the grown up boy is willing, may occupy much of the rest of his life.

2.  Wounded boys are needy and vulnerable, magnets for pedophiles, and very likely to be molested. They pretty well have a sign on their forehead saying “victim”, which predators quickly home in on.  Each molestation makes another one more likely.

The boy is molded physically, mentally, and emotionally by these experiences, and logically forms an identity as inferior, a victim, and as a homosexual.  He does not realize that someone else appointed this identity to him, instead he believes they recognized what he already must have been–not true!!  The only thing he was is needy and vulnerable.

3.  Demonic influence–I think this is one of the biggest reasons that homosexuality is so commonplace today. Demonic forces promote sin in every form.  Demonic forces actively deceive, tempt, and seduce people into sin.  Just as we may have ‘guardian angels’, people are accompanied by demonic spirits.  Demonic beings act persistently in a person’s life, usually to the extent that they are successful in luring him into sin.

Demonic spirits can gain entrance to a person’s life (not the same as actually being possessed) through things they partake of (including music, movies, magazines, etc.), through interactions with other people (who ‘entertain’ demons in their life), and by chance.  MANY of these demonic beings are with us, in our sinful culture today, and they are a powerful force behind the promotion of homosexuality.

Homosexuality is neither normal nor natural.  God says it is an abomination to Him.  He also says that, when He is totally disgusted with a person (to paraphrase), He will give them over to a ‘reprobate mind’ and homosexuality.

With that in mind, does homosexuality really sound like something people are born with?  Do you think God would create someone that way, so that He would turn His back on him from the day he was born?  No.  Absolutely not!!  The temptation to homosexuality, however, may find its way into your life at a very early age.

I believe that part of the recent increase in demonic activity in America, is a concerted Satanic attack on children.  With a culture that lies to us and says that homosexuality is normal and that speaking against it is hateful (or criminal)–how many parents are going to steer their young children away from homosexuality when they are being tempted and deceived by demonic spirits (or other kids, or society, etc. for that matter)?

By trying to be ‘politically correct’, we are leaving our vulnerable children open to the most vile temptations and influences.  These sins, that we are afraid to speak against, have the power to imprison our children in chains of heavy bondage, and open the door to other powerful delusions and doctrines of Satan.

Parents:  we live in perilous, vile, and deceptive times–you had better get serious about protecting your children from evil!!

‘Christian parents’:  if you won’t teach your children right from wrong, and the truth from a lie–who do you think will?  And who do you think God will hold responsible?

Homosexuality: Why Is It Such A Big Deal?

Unconditional Salvation?

You can’t be a follower of Jesus and believe that there are many ways to God.

Jesus said that He is the ONLY way . . . THE way, THE truth, and THE life . . . no man goes to the Father but through Him . . . the only begotten son . . .sent by God, because He loves us all so much . . . because He wishes that none would perish . . . but that all would come to repentance and receive eternal life.

Only One Way?  How Intolerant!

Was Jesus A Prophet?

Deathbed Conversions

I think deathbed conversions are a crock.  I doubt the sincerity of someone who waits until their dying breath to call out to God for a pardon because suddenly they can see what lies ahead.  I think it’s an insult to God and an abuse of His grace.

My attitude reminds me of someone else’s:  a guy who had a brother that insisted on having his inheritance early, and then ran off and blew it partying and whoring around.  He was understandably irritated when, after hitting rock bottom,  his brother decided it was time to come home.  After all, he’d stayed home and had to pick up the slack.

But, as I look at the father of these guys, I see a man who is running down the driveway to meet his son.  He welcomes him back and showers him with gifts.  It’s not that he loves one of his sons more than the other–it’s that this one was lost, but has come home.

So, if that’s the way God feels (and I know it is, because Jesus told the story), then I’m just going to let it go.  If God isn’t offended, then why should I be?

However, If you’re that one who’s lost, and you are planning to wait until you are on your deathbed to make that commitment, consider this: sin will harden your heart.  Every time you feel the Holy Spirit tugging at your heart and you pull away, your heart gets a little harder.  By the time you are on your deathbed (if you even get that chance), you may not be able to muster the repentance you need in order to be forgiven.

Beyond that, the stakes are even higher now!  God is sending a powerful delusion to those that refuse ‘to love the truth and so be saved’.  He sends them this powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie of the Antichrist and be condemned (those who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness).

The time for taking God’s grace for granted is nearly over.  Who knows. . . this may be YOUR last chance!
