Are We Enterering The Last Days?

I am a firm believer in the Last Days, and I truly believe that they are upon us. The signs are there for us to see and all you have to do is read the Bible and understand. While Jesus said

that no one except the Father, would know the exact time, He also said that there would be signs to watch for. Those signs are here! All you have to see is the major earthquakes, the diverse wars that are increasing, the abusive nature of man that is apparent in the callous disregard of ordinary people to the neighbors plights or those dying on the street.

He gave us these signs in order that we would be able to turn our lives around and choose God, because if you do not choose God, you will not be chosen. We have free will, and even if you think that you are living a life that is Godly and wise, if you haven’t given yourself to Him, you have chosen wrongly. I pray that those reading this will take the time to investigate and make the right choice. In Jesus Holy name I so pray. Thank you Lord, Amen.

The Ignorant Fishermen

The Events That Will Lead Up To The Anti-Christ‘s 666 Global State

When the Rapture of the Church finally takes place – in which Almighty God the Son calls out His body (saints and ambassadors) – it (The Rapture) will be a wondrous sign unto the apostate western world more so than a sign unto the whole world. For all had better be prepared, for Almighty God’s “Day of Wrath” is now at hand (2 Thess. 2:3-12)!

“All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pangs) Matt. 24:8″.

The official commencement of this horrific seven year period will be the breaking of the 1st seal (i.e., the “Confirming of the Covenant”Dan. 9:27) by Almighty God’s Lamb (i.e., The Lord Jesus Christ) in Heaven (Rev. 6:1). It is at this precise moment that the man of lawlessness (i.e., the anti-Christ) will be revealed unto the entire world (2 Thess. 2: 3-12; Rev. 6:2). This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adds his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israel’s defeated enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Dan. 9: 27). Israel will sign this covenant from a position of strength, not weakness (Ezek 38: 8). Israel will then have rest and dwell in their land in safety because they have eradicated their border enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Rev. 11:3-7). This position of power does not mean that Israel’s heart is right with Almighty God, for it will not be (Rev. 11:8). Israel at this time will also have the super natural protection of Almighty God’s two witnesses who possess Almighty God’s Divine authority and are extremely more powerful and than the anti – Christ and his global confederacies (Rev. 11:3-6).

“This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adds his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israel’s defeated enemies”

These two lamp stands of Almighty God (Moses and Elijah) will preach salvation in Jesus Messiah, re- institute the temple, its sacrifices and its priesthood. They will preach repentance and testify to ALL that the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. These two will then prepare the remnant of believing Jews and a chosen 144,000 Jewish men – from the 12 tribes of Israel(Matt. 24:14, Rev. 7:4-8, 11:13) for their global ministry unto All of the nations of the earth and their Messiah’s glorious and imminent return and Kingdom. It will be at this time -the first 3 1/2 years of the tribulation period – that the WORLD will seek every and any opportunity to root out and destroy these two Divinely appointed vessels of Almighty God… all to no avail (Mal. 4:4-6, Rev. 7,14:1-4,11:3-8).

Remembering David Wilkerson From His Son

Time Square Church

Image by dustinsapenga via Flickr

“David served the purposes of God in his generation, then he died” (Acts 13:36).

On Wednesday afternoon my father, David Wilkerson, passed away in a car accident. We grieve the loss of a beloved father, a faithful husband and a holy man of God. My mother, Gwen, his wife of 57 years, was in the car also, but we are told she will recover fully.

Dad’s 60-plus years of ministry have impacted the lives of those closest to him and extended to millions around the world. Today we feel a personal loss, but at the same time we rejoice knowing Dad lived life to the fullest, obeying God with devotion and loving Jesus radically.

He was known for his unlimited faith. He believed God could change the lives of gang members and transform the most desperate drug addicts. He believed that a dynamic church could be launched in the heart of Times Square, New York City. He believed he could be a man who loved his wife and children well. And he did.

Dad was not one for fanfare, acclaim or ceremony. He turned down invitations to meet with world leaders yet would give everything he owned to support a poor orphan or a widow in distress.

Like King David of old, Dad served God’s purposes in his generation. He preached with uncompromising passion and relentless grace. He wrote with amazing insight, clarity and conviction. He ran his race well and when his work was done, he was called home.

I don’t think my father would have retired well. I don’t think he was one to sit in a rocking chair and reminisce about times past. I believe that Jesus, knowing this, graciously called him home.

Dad’s last mission on earth was to be an advocate for the poorest of the poor—to provide relief and support for hungry children and widows and orphans. After founding Teen Challenge, World Challenge and Times Square Church, he sought to feed starving children in the most impoverished countries in the world. Today, Please Pass the Bread is saving the lives of thousands of children, through 56 outreaches in 8 countries.

Like King David of old, after having served God’s purpose, he died. I know if my father were able to encourage you with his words today, he would invite you to give your all to Jesus, to love God deeply and to give yourself away to the needs of others.

The works he began outlive him. We can all attest to his impacting us—not only in his preaching, writing and founding of world-changing ministries, but in his love, devotion, compassion and ability to stir our faith for greater works.

Control The Water and You Control The World

Official presidential portrait of Barack Obama...

Image via Wikipedia

What happens when you control every bit of water in a country? Every bit, from all the lakes and rivers, to the rain that falls on you when you walk down a street. You think that this is impossible? It’s not! The Obama administration has just interpreted the federal power of the Clean Water Act in a way that gives them this power.
Does this scare you as much as it scares me? It should! Barack Obama has shown that he likes to control everything, and that he wants to pick and choose how to dole out that power. We have seen them already moving in that direction in other things.The canceling of mining permits, the canceling of coal fired energy plants, the canceling of oil drilling permits. It didn’t matter that these had already been granted under existing rules and that some of them were in operation. It didn’t matter how many people lost their jobs.
We have seen how the price of oil has gone up under the policies of this administration. What will this do to the price of water? Can you imagine the government putting policies in place that will drive up the cost of water the same way that they have done with oil and coal?
If the cost of water was to triple what would it do to the price of food? Most of the food in this country has to be irrigated in some fashion or other. In many places, right now, they are allowed to get water from local rivers and lakes. What would happen if they were not allowed to do so? The loss of water would lead to the loss of food for a good part of this country. Unless you had plenty of money, you could not afford to buy it. Most of it would have to be imported and the cost would be enormous.
You think that no government would do this to it’s own people? My friends, they are already doing it with oil, gasoline, coal and minerals! They are already doing it in a limited way with water. Barack Obama is in control of everything that you do at this moment. What do you think that they will do?

Obama’s Other Hand

 Regulation: While we were distracted by the president’s birth certificate show-and-tell, his EPA releases its guidelines for expanding federal power under the Clean Water Act. America’s economy and freedom are at stake.

President Obama’s long-form birth certificate wasn’t the only thing released last Wednesday, but it was probably the least important. The Environmental Protection Agency also released its guidelines for expanding federal power over the nation’s waterways, ponds and puddles.

These guidelines will take effect after a 60-day comment period and will serve as a reference for environmental agencies in determining their jurisdiction over a particular body of water, large or small. They will eventually morph into binding regulations as damaging to our economy and freedom as the EPA regulation of carbon dioxide emissions.

The 1972 Clean Water Act was originally intended to protect the “navigable waters of the United States” — you know, the kind boats travel down. It was broadly and quickly interpreted to any pool of water in America capable of supporting a bathtub-variety boat.

The word “navigable” was forgotten and ignored, and the act’s scope expanded to the point that water that collected after a rainstorm was considered a “wetland” worthy of environmental protection.

A 2006 U.S. Supreme Court case from Michigan produced five different opinions and no clear definition of which waterways were covered. This essentially left the government with a clean slate on which to write its own interpretation — just about everything.

House Agricultural Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., says the expanded EPA guidelines would let the government “regulate essentially any body of water, such as a farm pond or even a ditch.” A bipartisan group of 170 congressmen wrote a letter to the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers urging them not to issue the expanded guidelines.

Obama: Playing Politics With Disaster

BUDA, TX - NOVEMBER 2:  Conservative supporter...

Image by Getty Images via @daylife

I guess it should not surprise us that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, would play politics with disaster relief. But quite frankly, it shows us just how unfit the man is to be President. No one in the history of this country has been so deliberately divisive and cared so little about the welfare of the country itself. It seems that all Mr. Obama is interested in is doing political favors for friends and adding more people to the rolls of unions. The cost to this country in the loss of life, homes, and jobs is tremendous and it at the very least deserves the attention of the man that was elected to lead this country.

But then again, his own staff says that Barack Obama leads from behind. Funny, where I live, that is called following. It truly makes me wonder who is at the front of the pact. What does he do anyway? Pick whomever is the most expendable and send them out front? Maybe that is the EPA!!! He sends them out there to finish off the state of Texas by declaring a poor little sand lizard endangered. What is really endangered is the people of the United States under Barack Obama. Perhaps what we should do is ban him and get our country back on the right track. Sounds like a bumper sticker to me “Save The United States: Ban Obama!”

And, Obama really wonders why he is so unpopular in Texas?

Obama told reporters earlier this month that he is not targeting Texas.

Texas Governor Rick Perry slammed the Obama Administration for ignoring requests for disaster relief from the federal government. Fires have scorched over 2 million acres in Texas and left two firefighters dead.

Reuters reported:

Texas Governor Rick Perry criticized the Obama administration on Thursday for not responding to a request for a disaster aid for the parched state, where wildfires have scorched nearly 2 million acres.

“You have to ask, ‘Why are you taking care of Alabama and other states?’ I know our letter didn’t get lost in the mail,” Perry, a Republican and frequent critic of the federal government, said after addressing a Texas emergency management conference.

President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency for Alabama, where storms — including a tornado that ravaged Tuscaloosa on Wednesday — killed nearly 200 people this week.

The Last Word Of David Wilkerson

David Wilkerson welcome message at entrance to...

WHEN ALL MEANS FAIL

by David Wilkerson | April 27, 2011

To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen” (John 20:29).

Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.

Someone has come to the place of hopelessness—the end of hope—the end of all means. A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening.

That is when Satan’s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.”

Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don’t quit on God—just do not trust him anymore. It doesn’t pay!”

Even questioning God’s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.

To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.”

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.

Barack Obama: A Question Of Leadership

Barack Obama - Caricature

Image by DonkeyHotey via Flickr

You elect a President to be the face of the country. The President should show the rest of the world the best that we as a people are. He should stand in strong support of the values that we were founded upon. He should be the number one fan and take that message to everyone he meets.

The questions about Barack Obama have never truly been about his birth certificate or where he was born, once he was elected, it became pretty much irrelevant.  There were a lot of unanswered questions, that should have been answered before he was elected, and in that we must blame the media. They hold themselves out as those that are responsible to vet the candidates, and by not doing so, the failures fall solely on their shoulders.

But the real questions about Barack Obama, go much deeper. He puts himself forward as different, not the same as the rest of the American people. As somehow above everyone else, a citizen, not of the greatest country on Earth, but as a citizen of the world. At in doing so, he becomes someone who doesn’t represent those of us who consider ourselves American.

It’s easy for people on the left to call those who question Barack Obama, racists. In doing that, they make excuses for the man, and therefore he does not have to address the very problems, that he has raised. And those problems are many.

Take for instance the Constitution, itself. Barack Obama as a Constitutional Law Professor should be one of the strongest supporters of that document. Instead we find someone who doesn’t follow the Constitution, and instead finds fault with it. We find a man who is a lawyer, but is lawless at times, and doesn’t seem to believe that he should follow the very laws that, as President, he took an oath to uphold.

As the representative of the United States, you would hope that Barack Obama would spend his time telling the world how great we are. Instead he seems to convey the very opposite. Instead of meeting others as a equal or greater dignitary, we have seen him bow to lesser leaders.

These are the things that make us question Barack Obama, his birth certificate is just a sideshow. But it is a sideshow that let us see deeper into the man behind the mask, than he probably wanted us to see. When he finally, after almost three years, presented a copy to the world, it was if he could not understand what all the fuss was about. The truth of the matter was that, he was the one that kept the matter going. It would have been simple to release it three years ago, but he himself refused to do so. Whatever his motives were, he is probably the only one who will ever truly know. But what the results were, and what we know about the man from the way that he handled the situation, is appalling. He behaved like a little child with a toy, when his parents told him it was time to put it away, he refused until forced to do so. Then he became petulant, and said, see there, it was no big deal.

The truth is that it really was no big deal, until he made it so. The only one to blame for keeping this going, was Barack Obama himself. The light that this shows on the character of the man, is the very childish way that he behaves. He does the same thing with his bullying of others. Where most people put the childish bullying of others away, when they grow up, Barack Obama has taken it to a world stage. In every case where he does not get his way, he resorts to name calling, strong arming, threatening, and then if that doesn’t work, gives in, and blames everyone else.

This is how that Barack Obama strikes the rest of us as different. We didn’t realize when he was elected, that we were electing a man who never grew up. We expected the man that wore the mask to show up, instead we got the child that was just pretending.

Unfortunately, Barack Obama is a man with a thuggish, bullying behavior that is in control of millions of peoples future. The fact that he doesn’t like the people, makes it hard for the man to represent us in a favorable way. This is what we see. This is what we don’t like. This is why we must elect someone else in 2012.

In Memory Of David Wilkerson

Looking north across 51st Street at Times Squa...

Image via Wikipedia

A true voice in the wilderness!

Amplify’d from www.nationalreview.com

In New York, I attended an interdenominational church located at 51st and Broadway called Times Square Church, even though the blue awning over the entrance proclaimed “The Church that Love Is Building.” I mean, honestly. Love? In a church? It seemed a little far-fetched to me, but over 8,000 people gathered to worship in the old Broadway theater every week, some of them driving more than two hours and staying for all three services. Being in New York was so spiritually disorienting for this southerner that had there been tire swings instead of pews or jugglers instead of a preacher, I wouldn’t have noticed.

Times Square Church is a “charismatic” church, meaning they believed in healing, visions, prophecy, etc. Over a hundred nationalities worshipped there, however, and I couldn’t tell the “tongues of angels” from Swahili. My high-school Latin didn’t help — since no one was singing Happy Birthday — and the disparate languages melded into what I imagined to be the very sound of holiness. It contrasted jarringly with the neon decadence of the surrounding Times Square. In some churches, people arrive early to shake hands, talk about work, and drink coffee. But these congregants came to pray, books embossed with the words Heilige Schrift orSanta Biblia opened in their laps. In fact, a half hour before the opening song, only balcony seats would still be available. I never saw the main floor up close.

But what I could see startled me. The faithful were down there, crowding the stage, raising their hands in prayer. There was an elderly black man who stood on the floor to the left of the podium who simply yelled “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” over and over until the service began. (And even intermittently through the sermon.) His staccato chant combined with the anguished prayers of women either terrified me or electrified me, but either way I was content to observe from the balcony.

The Poison That Is Barack Obama

Barack Obama rebounding the ball in a game of ...

Barack Obama is so smart that he makes the birds sing! Oh wait, under Obama, birds are falling from the skies.

Obama is so smart he stopped the seas from rising! Well, maybe not! Come to think of it, we are getting an awful lot of water falling from the sky lately and you know, it all has to go somewhere.

Barack is such a sweet talker that the world just has to come together! Hmmm, seems to me that we just started another war and there is more discord in this country than there has been since Vietnam.

So what is he good at? The economy? No, that seems much worse since he took office.

Jobs?  Oh gee, he is failing at that too.

What about making us independent from foreign oil? No, not that either, we just awarded Columbia money to build an oil refinery and gave Brazil the money to drill, baby, drill!

Well, what’s left? Healthcare? No, he ruined that!

The Environment? Well, it’s okay now, but in a few years the policies he has put in place are going to make it worse.

Perhaps he helped the entertainment industry? No, they are losing money, people can’t afford to watch movies and the investors are disappearing.

It must be the unions then!!! No, no  and no!!! Even Mass. is taking away the unions right to collective bargaining.

Gee Whiz, what a failure this man has been. The only thing that he has accomplished is to make everything he touches worse. Even the teams that he picks in sports lose.

No Midas touch for this man, everything he touches turns to lead. Just what we need, lead poisoning!!

Obama: Police State

:Original raster version: :Image:Food and Drug...

Image via Wikipedia

I read this story this morning and it, along with several others I have read lately, show the disconnect of the people in the Obama administration and in the Government in general. For a man that tells the world, constantly, that he is “focused like a laser” on jobs, it seems that his focus is on destroying as many as he can.

In another case of totally disregarding the law, the raid on Maxam Nutraceutics seems more determined to kill the business, and not the safety of the American people. It seems in this administration, it doesn’t matter if you follow the rules, regulations, and the law. If they decide that they want to take you out, they simply do so.

Where does this behavior end? How long will the American people go along with this? How can we hold the President accountable for the actions of those that he is in charge of?

Armed agents invade Maxam Nutraceutics and steal natural health products in shocking FDA raid

(NaturalNews) Amidst all the destructive activities taking place in our world today that deserve attention, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided instead to make it a personal mission to destroy the businesses and livelihoods of those trying to help people through natural medicine.

On Thursday, April 14, 2011, dozens of agents from the FDA, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted an unprovoked, full-scale raid on Hood River, Ore.-based Maxam Nutraceutics, a company that produces and sells nutritional supplements primarily for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and Alzheimer’s disease.

Back in October 12, 2010, the FDA sent a warning letter to Jim Cole, Founder and CEO of Maxam, notifying him that several of his company’s products were not labeled in accordance with the US Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The letter also stated that Maxam had fifteen days from the receipt of the letter to notify the FDA compliance officer of the specific steps it planned to take in order to correct the violations.

You can view a copy of the FDA warning letter here, complete with the name of the FDA compliance officer to whom Jim and his company were instructed to respond, and the FDA district director who sent the letter:
