The End in Sight? As America Has Done to Israel via John McTernan

 

 

by JohnMcTernan

                            Verse of the Day

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (to Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

Commentary

China’s new air defense zone above Senkakus ‘very dangerous’ escalation, Japan says 11/23/13 The Chinese feel that now is the time to move for control of Asia.

It appears China feels that America is now weak enough under Obama as the Commander-in-Chief to exert itself in Asia. With the weakness of Obama, it was just a matter of time until China felt safe to move against America. Obama is embarrassingly weak and the Chinese are about to test America’s mettle.

Please notice the connection to China’s move against Japan and what Obama/Kerry are doing to Israel! They are pushing Israel to war with Iran, at the exact time that God is raising up China to confront America!
It is frightening to think of America going to war in Asia with Obama as the Commander-in-Chief. This is the man who is a world evangelist for homosexuality, he leads the charge to kill babies in the womb and betrays God’s covenant nation Israel.

He has done everything in his power to sodomize the military. Notice the short time between sodomizing the US military and China confronting America! The judgment did not take long.

Chinese plans for nuclear attack against USAChinese plans for nuclear attack against USA

Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S. 11/01/13 (This article was in my post of November 2. To read this entire post go to: Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.)

Just a short time ago, the Chinese newspapers showed China’s ability to attack America with nuclear weapons and now this move against Japan. The Chinese pattern is clear that they are heading for war with America.
It is crystal clear to me, that God has raised up China as a rod of judgment against America.

Dangerous Times: A Looming Strategic Disaster in the Middle East.11/23/13 This is a great article showing what Obama’s lies and weakness have done to the Middle East. He now has set the stage for World War 3 or, as I see it in the Bible, it will start with the Psalm 83 war. This is the all-out war between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations that will spread throughout the world.

If Israel goes to war with Iran, watch for America to be at war with China. I can easily see God using China to break America as a super power. Once the war starts, it will be too late for America to repent and come back under God’s blessings. It will be like when the Babylonians were at the gates of Jerusalem. It was too late for Judah to repent. The nation was destroyed, and the Jews had to go into captivity.
 
There is nothing we can do but grow closer to Jesus by faith and keep anchored in looking for the Blessed Hope, the Groom coming for His bride. The die is now cast and events are going to unfold very quickly. God has lined up the rebellious West for judgment.

God is about to turn the world we know upside down. Please do not fear but stay focused on God and His word. This will keep you from fear.

May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

As America Has Done to Israel

Hagel: U.S. ‘deeply concerned’ with China air defense map 11/23/13 This map includes islands that belong to Japan!

“We view this development as a destabilizing attempt to alter the status quo in the region,” Hagel said in a statement. “This unilateral action increases the risk of misunderstanding and miscalculations.”  “The Associated Press reports that the Chinese Defense Ministry issued a map showing the new East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, which encompasses what the Chinese call the Diaoyu islands. The move is seen as an aggressive step against Japan, which bought what it calls the Senkaku islands from private owners in 2012. The islands are uninhabited, but are believed to rest near large underwater oil reserves. Taiwan also claims possession of the islands.”

Iran, world powers reach historic nuclear deal 11/23/13 President Clinton did the same thing with North Korea, and it turned out to be a joke. NK actually completed the nuclear bomb and detonated it while under the terms of the agreement! Iran needs this time to complete its bomb and maybe six months is all Iran needs. The key issue is what is Israel going to do?

“The deal, intended as first step toward a more comprehensive nuclear pact to be completed in six months, freezes or reverses progress at all of Iran’s major nuclear facilities, according to Western officials familiar with the details. It halts the installation of new centrifuges and caps the amount and type of enriched uranium that Iran is allowed to produce.”

‘Geneva talks a facade, US-Iran worked secretly on deal for past year’11/17/13 This shows just how treacherous and underhanded Obama is. Deep down, I knew that Obama would sell Israel out. His love for the Muslim Brotherhood was all the proof that I needed. Now that it is his second term in office, he does not have to worry about the political ramification. This is the real Obama and Hard Left in action against Israel.

“The Geneva negotiations between the so-called P5+1 powers and Iran are a mere “facade,” because the terms of a deal on Iran’s nuclear program have been negotiated in talks between a top adviser to President Barack Obama and a leading Iranian nuclear official that have continued in secret for more than a year, Israeli television reportedSunday.”

He needs to stand strong against Obama. The intense pressure is coming.He needs to stand strong against Obama. The intense pressure is coming.

Will Israel Attack Iran? 11/23/13 Now that the West made a “deal” with Iran, watch these nations unify against Israel. It is possible that Iran will become the “good guy” while Israel now becomes “intransigent” to the West. I think that Obama will try to break Israel. What will happen if he does this is that God will break him.

“Benjamin Netanyahu understands this. Jewish history, and not just Jewish history, teaches this lesson. Netanyahu may well judge that he has to act to stop the Iranian regime from getting nuclear weapons. If he does, then Israel will fight. And Israel will be right.”

Bennett: ‘Bad’ Iran deal increases need for military action 11/23/13

Iran Launches ‘Massive’ War Drills 11/21/13 Iran is building and preparing its military for an all-out war with the “dreaded Zionists”. According to the Bible, they are preparing for their own massive defeat.

“Iranian military forces launched a series of “massive military drills” across nine provinces on Wednesday following an order by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to state media reports.

The drills, codenamed “Towards Jerusalem,” will continue over the coming days and throughout the rest of the year.”

Rouhani to the West: Ignore Israel, Sign a Deal 11/22/13 What I think will happen is that the coming war will turn into a world war. There is great bloodshed coming to all these countries as God will use the Muslims as judgment. I also think that Russia will take control over Europe also as judgment. The West is forcing Israel into war and bloodshed, and that is exactly what is coming on a massive scale to the West .

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

The Demise of Pax Americana

The Demise of Pax Americana

by JohnMcTernan

                           Verse of the Day

1John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Commentary

This situation is extremely dangerous for Kerry and AmericaThis situation is extremely dangerous for Kerry and America

The Demise of Pax Americana11/15/13 The word “pax” is used but it means: ” A time of wide-ranging stability when there is only a single dominant power” It is most often associated with the Roman Empire.

“Kerry’s failure to reach the hoped-for deal represented a huge blow to America, and a double victory for Iran. The simple fact that Washington was willing to sign the deal – and lie about it to its closest allies – caused the US to lose its credibility in the Middle East. Even without the deal, the US paid the price of appeasing Iran and surrendering leadership of the free world to France and Israel.Just by getting the Americans to commit themselves to reducing sanctions while Iran continues its march to a nuclear weapon, Iran destroyed any remaining possibility of doing any serious non-military damage to Iran’s plans for nuclear weaponry. At the same time, the Americans boosted Iranian credibility, endorsed Iranian power, and belittled Israel and Saudi Arabia – Iran’s chief challengers in the Middle East. Thus, Iran ended Pax Americana in the Middle East, removing the greatest obstacle in its path to regional hegemony. And it did so without having to make the slightest concession to the Great Satan.”

God’s judgment on Obama and America are really starting to accelerate into a collapse. Under Obama’s leadership America’s position as the dominant world power is now ending. He is totally untrustworthy and seems that his only coherent foreign policy is to promote the Muslim Brotherhood. In addition, he seems determined to see to it that Iran obtains nuclear weapons.

He is so diabolical I have a sense that he cut a deal with Iran, that they could obtain nuclear weapons, as long as they agreed to only use them against Israel and not the United States. I really think that Obama is that evil. In the meantime, China is very subtly threatening America with nuclear war or at least war in Asia! I do believe that God is raising China up as a rod of judgment against America both economically and militarily.

If Obama tries to set up Israel for war with Iran, then for sure, America will find itself in a war that it cannot win.

The 1956 Israeli war is viewed by historians as the end of Great Britain as a world power. Great Britain came against God’s prophetic plan for Israel, and this war put an end to Great Britain’s power. As a result, now this nation is under the complete control of the Hard Left reprobates along with the ascension of Islam to power. God is crushing Great Britain with judgments.

It does appear that this confrontation between “Pharaoh” Obama and Israel is now America’s turn to be punished as was Great Britain’s. As the “Pharaoh” comes against Israel, his presidency is being destroyed both nationally and internationally right before our very eyes.

Exodus 9:15-17 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth. And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?

God’s Final Warning to Obama/America

The world's evangelist. for homosexualityThe world’s evangelist for homosexuality

Obama: Same-Sex Marriage ‘Exemplifies the Values We Hold Dear as a Nation’ 11/13/13 This is his heart of sin that he projects onto the entire nation. Homosexual “marriage” is a delusion invented by the modern Hard Left which are in total rebellion against God.

“President Barack Obama issued a statement yesterday congratulating Hawaii for legalizing same-sex marriage, a move he said “exemplifies the values we hold dear as a nation.”

Gallup: Belief Obama’s ‘Honest and Trustworthy’ Hits All-Time Low 11/13/13 Now that Obama is a proven liar to the public, he has no place to go but down. I expect his ratings to fall to the percentage of his hardcore believers, which is about 25 percent or so. He is heading towards not being able to govern because he is now exposed as a pathological liar. Everyone around him are also pathological liars! Each hearing showed that all the members of Obama’s administration are bold liars. They actually lie about lying! God raises up people like this into power as punishment for a rebellious nation.

Proverbs 29:12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

He is wounded and now very dangerous. If he cannot get his way with the Hard Left agenda, he might move with an attempt to usurp power with a form of coup. I repeat that he now is extremely dangerous like a wounded animal. God is now dealing directly with Obama and through him the American people. It really does appear that judgment day is approaching very fast.

State Dept.: Israeli Settlements Are ‘Illegitimate’  11/15/13 God might deal with America that sections of our nation are illegitimate. The nation could divide up into regions as the unity of the country melts away.

Increasingly often in recent months, Secretary of State John Kerry and State Department officials have made the point about settlement illegitimacy.

Usually, they have attributed the term to “continued” settlement activity – implying active construction work in existing or new settlements. (President Obama used the same term in his 2009 speech in Cairo and again at the United Nations later that year, saying the U.S. “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.”)

But at a meeting with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem last week Kerry dropped the modifier, saying only “we consider now and have always considered the settlements to be illegitimate.”

Health Law Rollout’s Stumbles Draw Parallels to Bush’s Hurricane Response 11/14/13 Hurricane Katrina was the destruction of Bush’s presidency and it happened at the exact time that he pressured Israel to abandon Gaza. Now Obama is being destroyed, as he is pressuring Israel to create a Palestinian state by April 2014. I see Obama going “down in flames” like Bush did, only Obama might take the nation down with him.

“President Obama is now threatened by a similar toxic mix. The disastrous rollout of his health care law not only threatens the rest of his agenda but also raises questions about his competence in the same way that the Bush administration’s botched response to Hurricane Katrina undermined any semblance of Republican efficiency.”

Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations,and parted my land.

Israel and the Coming Middle East War

The following articles show more of Obama’s pattern of turning against Israel. The real Obama is now starting to show himself. He could not do it during his first term because of reelection, but with nothing to lose, the real Obama is surfacing.

Iran deal may be inked as soon as next week 11/16/13

“In his latest salvo against making concessions to Iran, Netanyahu’s Twitter account featured a cartoon-like ad that detailed what he said the pending agreement included.“The proposal enables Iran to develop atomic bombs and build long-range missiles to reach the US and Europe,” it read. “Iran is getting everything and giving nothing.Netanyahu has been increasingly vocal in recent days about his opposition to a potential deal between six Western powers and Iran that would ease some sanctions while still leaving Iran with uranium-enrichment capabilities. Netanyahu has said he utterly rejects the brewing agreement and has been lobbying American allies in Congress to keep up sanctions.”

Obama national security aide chides Israel over settlements 11/15/13

“We have seen increased tensions on the ground. Some of this is a result of recent settlement announcements. So let me reiterate: The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” she said.Her remarks to a conference of the Middle East Institute drew applause from an audience that included former and current US officials, foreign diplomats, some from Arab countries, and regional experts.Rice’s criticism echoed US Secretary of State John Kerry, who urged Israel on a visit to the region last week to limit settlement building in occupied territories - an activity he called “illegitimate” – to help push peace talks back on track.”

Amos 9:14,15 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land,and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Syrian refugees selling kidneys to survive

John Barron from Sifting Reality commented that kidneys are taken from the back and that this is about six inches too high as well so that most likely this is propaganda! Perhaps we should consider what the propaganda is being used for? Perhaps to play on our sympathies and get us more involved in the civil war that is taking place there? I really should have been more observant in posting this, but there is almost always a lesson to be learned. I sincerely thank him and God bless!

‘Israel will attack Iran if you sign the deal’ — John McTernan

‘Israel will attack Iran if you sign the deal

                           Verse of the Day

Exodus 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

Commentary

Obama is an international evangelist for this sin.Obama is an international evangelist for this sin.

I believe that Obama was raised up by God as judgment on America, just as God raised up Pharaoh for judgment on Egypt. He is a tremendous agent of destruction.

What appears to be happening is that as Obama promotes his godless agenda, God is now openly and clearly destroying Obama’s presidency. Five years ago he was hailed almost as a messiah figure, while now he is openly mocked at both home and abroad. I see no way out of this for him. He is locked into destruction because he is an ideologue of rebellion against God. He is a proven liar with no credibility.

Obama mocked God and His word and now he is mocked.

Please link Obama being the world’s evangelist for homosexuality and trying to divide Israel with the destruction of his presidency. This linkage is now so clear.

Obama hits lowest approval rating of presidency 11/12/13

The problem is, as God is judging Obama, it is going to spill over into America. It will affect the economy and may lead into social unrest. He is so weak that it could induce China, North Korea, Russia or Iran to move against us. His weakness could start a world war.

We are heading into a tremendous volatile time with no turning back. Obama is locked into early next year, trying to divide Israel and Jerusalem. It really does appear that early next year America is going to be divided at the very time Pharaoh Obama touches Israel.

May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.

1Thess 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Israel and the Middle East War

Israeli warplanes for attacking IranIsraeli warplanes for attacking Iran

‘Israel will attack Iran if you sign the deal 11/10/13  Israel is going to attack no matter what happens. Is this why France backed out of the deal with Iran?

“French member of parliament telephoned French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Geneva at the weekend to warn him that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would attack Iran’s nuclear facilities if the P5+1 nations did not stiffen their terms on a deal with Iran, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported Sunday.”

Obama Turns on Israel 11/12/13 Obama’s foreign policy is in shambles. America’s enemies do not fear us and our longtime allies do not trust us! What a mess as the curse on Obama is really starting to manifest.

“Well, that price has now, eight months later, been revealed, and it has two components. If I might paraphrase the U.S. position as presented to Israel: “First, sit by quietly as we reach an accord with Tehran that freezes but does not dismantle its nuclear buildup. Second, stopthe illegitimate residential construction on the West Bank or the Palestinian Authority will, with American acquiescence, start a third intifada.”

No Illusions Concerning the Obama Administration 11/10/13 Israel now clearly sees the monster it faces with Obama. He never intended to defend Israel against Iran. The way he would do it is it was a cover to protect Saudi Arabia.

Israeli-US rifts ‘should not be aired publicly,’ Liberman says 11/12/13 Unless Obama needs Israel in a war, I do not see this getting better. The real Obama is now showing his colors and he has no interest in Israel.

Mufti: Jerusalem is ‘Islamic’ 11/12/13 This is ground zero for Bible prophecy. The Muslims cannot allow the Jews to control Jerusalem. It means that allah is weak and cannot defeat the Zionists!

“The city of Al Quds [Jerusalem – DH] has an Islamic character and the occupation will not be able to take away its character and identity, even if it continues commiting crimes and forging the facts. ”The World Union of Muslim Sages declared Friday, November 22, a special day of support for the Al Aqsa Mosque and for Al Quds / Jerusalem. They called upon Muslim residents of Jerusalem to gather at the mosque in order to “protect it from the plots of the occupation authorities and the extremist Jewish groups. ”These Jewish groups, the Union of Muslim Sages said, seek to enable Jewish prayer at the site or demolish it and build the “false” Jewish Temple upon its ruins.”

Bibles and Booze: Congregations Across America Attempting to Attract New Members With Beer 11/03/13 The reason for this is these “churches” are powerless and are desperate to stay in business. This goes along with sodomites in the pulpits being in rebellion against God.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Clay May Have Been Birthplace of Life On Earth, New Study Suggests11/05/13 This is correct but not because of evolution, but because this is what God used to create man. The scientists will never agree with this as it is too close to the Bible. Our bodies are closely connected to clay.

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

“In simulated ancient seawater, clay forms a hydrogel — a mass of microscopic spaces capable of soaking up liquids like a sponge. Over billions of years, chemicals confined in those spaces could have carried out the complex reactions that formed proteins, DNA and eventually all the machinery that makes a living cell work. Clay hydrogels could have confined and protected those chemical processes until the membrane that surrounds living cells developed.”

Hard Left

The Real Reason for Gun Control in America 11/11/13 (Video) It is not what you think.

The most blood-thirsty mayor ever 11/12/13 This is about the new mayor of New York City.
“Even worse the incoming Mayor has no desire to stop the practice. Worse still he wants to allow the practice to be spread to city-owned properties, and force all physicians who work in city hospitals to perform one of these child executions as part of their training. And worst of all he wishes to see the practice increased and desires to eliminate the only voices that speak effectively enough to save some of these children each year.”

Planned Parenthood battles to shield clinics from law 11/12/13 They will do everything they can to keep killing the babies. This organization kills about 350,000 babies a year! It is the most vile organizations on earth and on par with the Muslim Brotherhood for violence.

Atheist ‘mega-churches’ taking root across US This is very interesting as it is only temporary phase in turning away from God. They reject and mock God, but this is only a transition into worshiping the antichrist.

Revelation 13:7 ” …  and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

They, like the rest of the world, are coming under the strong delusion that God is sending upon them. They cannot escape this delusion to worship the antichrist, as it is so powerful. Their end is worshiping the antichrist and taking the “Mark of the Beast” and therefore, being sealed into eternal damnation. It is very sad to understand this and see their end. A few will come out of this into salvation with Jesus Christ, but the vast majority are coming under this strong delusion of which there is no way to escape it.

2Thess 2:9,10 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (11-12) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

American Delusion

Ministers back Methodist colleague at same-sex marriage ceremony in Philadelphia 11/10/13 Notice how the “ministers” are leading the charge to advance the homosexual agenda. These are reprobates in the pulpits, but nonetheless they are reprobates.

About 50 ministers gave their symbolic support to a colleague facing sanctions from the United Methodist Church by participating in a same-sex wedding.The wedding Saturday in Philadelphia was held about a week before the Rev. Frank Schaefer of Lebanon, about 90 miles to the west, will face a church trial for officiating over his son’s marriage to another man.The clergy filled the front of the Arch Street United Methodist Church, blessing the marriage in defiance of church law, the Philadelphia Inquirer.”

Reformation Day…and How Islamic Jihad resulted in Protestantism being recognized via American Minute

By Bill Federer
On OCTOBER 31, 1517, an Augustinian monk named Martin Luther posted 95 debate questions on the door of Wittenberg Church, which began the movement known as ‘the Reformation.’

In 1521, Martin Luther was summoned to stand trial before the most powerful man in the world, 21-year-old Holy Roman Emperor Charles V of Spain, whose empire spanned nearly 2 million square miles across Europe, the Netherlands, the Far East, Philippines, North and South America, and the Caribbean.


At the Diet of Worms, Charles V initially dismissed Luther’s theses as “an argument between monks” and simply declared Martin Luther an outlaw.

Martin Luther was hid by Frederick of Saxony in the Wartburg Castle, where he translated the New Testament into German.


Charles V sacked Rome, imprisoned Pope Clement VII, oversaw the Spanish colonization of the Americas, and began the Counter-Reformation.

During this time, Muslim Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent invaded Europe on land and sea.


In 1529, Suleiman the Magnificent sent 100,000 Muslim Turks to surround Vienna, Austria.

Martin Luther wrote:

“The Turk is the rod of the wrath of the Lord our God…

If the Turk’s god, the devil, is not beaten first, there is reason to fear that the Turk will not be so easy to beat…Christian weapons and power must do it…”

Martin Luther continued:

“(The fight against the Turks) must begin with repentance, and we must reform our lives, or we shall fight in vain.

(The Church should) drive men to repentance by showing our great and numberless sins and our ingratitude, by which we have earned God’s wrath and disfavor, so that He justly gives us into the hands of the devil and the Turk.”


In an attempted unite the Holy Roman Empire against the Ottoman Muslims, Charles V agreed to a truce recognizing the Protestants,as Eric W. Gritisch wrote in Martin-God’s Court Jester: Luther in Retrospect(Philadelphia: Fortress, 1983, p. 69-70):

“Afraid of losing the much-needed support of the German princes for the struggle against the Turkish threat from the south, Emperor Charles V agreed to a truce between Protestant and Catholic territories in Nuremberg in 1532…

Thus the Lutheran movement was, for the first time, officially tolerated and could enjoy a place in the political sun of the Holy Roman Empire.”


As the Islamic threat intensified, reformer John Calvin wrote to Philip Melanthon in 1543, (Selected Works of John Calvin: Tracts & Letters, I: 373):

“I hear of the sad condition of your Germany!…The Turk again prepares to wage war with a larger force.

Who will stand up to oppose his marching throughout the length and breadth of the land, at his mere will and pleasure?”


Followers of the reformers who “protested” certain doctrines, were generally referred to as “Protestants.” Some Protestants refused to help Charles V who was defending Europe from the Muslim invasion.

Finally, Charles V made a treaty with the German Lutheran Princes by signing the Peace of Augsburg, September 25, 1555, ceasing the religious struggle between Lutherans and Catholics.


A line in the treaty, “cuius regio, eius religio,” allowed each king to decide what was to be believed in his kingdom.

A month later, October 25, 1555, suffering from severe gout, Charles V abdicated his throne and lived the rest of his life secluded in the monastery of Yuste, leaving his son Philipe II to rule.


As different kings in Europe chose different denominations for their kingdoms, millions migrated from one country to another simply for conscience sake, and eventually spilled over into the colonies in America.

New York University Professor Emeritus Patricia Bonomi, in her article “The Middle Colonies as the Birthplace of American Religious Pluralism” wrote:

“The colonists were about 98 percent Protestant.”


Of the 56 signers of the Declaration, most were Protestant, with the notable exception of Catholic Charles Carroll of Maryland.

British Statesman Edmund Burke addressed Parliament, 1775:

“All Protestantism…is a sort of dissent. But the religion most prevalent in our Northern Colonies is a refinement on the principle of resistance; it is the dissidence of dissent, and the protestantism of the Protestant religion.”

Samuel Adams stated when he signed the Declaration of Independence:

“This day, I trust, the reign of political protestantism will commence.”

 

Martin Luther, who died in 1546, wrote:

“I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth.”

Which Democrat President condemned Islamic terror, defended marriage, vetoed welfare, and suspended secular work to thank God…? via American Minute

By Bill Federer
Democrat President Grover Cleveland condemned Islamic terrorism committed against Armenian Christians in Turkey, December 2, 1895:”Massacres of Christians in Armenia and the development there…of a spirit of fanatic hostility to Christian influences naturally excited apprehension…


European powers…have assumed a duty…asagents of the Christian worldto enforce such conduct of Turkish government as will refrainfanatical brutality…as have shocked civilization.


President Grover Cleveland wrote December 7, 1896:

Mad bigotry and cruel fanaticism…wanton destruction of homesand the bloody butchery of men, women, and children, made martyrs to their profession of Christian faith…

Our citizens in Turkey…in the midst of dreadful scenes of danger, their safety…is by no means assured…


The outbreaks of blind fury which lead to murder and pillage in Turkeyoccur suddenly and without notice…

I do not believe that the present somber prospect in Turkey will be long permitted to offend the sight of Christendom…

It seems hardly possible that the earnest demand of good people throughout the Christian world for its corrective treatment will remain unanswered.”


President Cleveland defended traditional marriage, December 8, 1885:

“The strength, the perpetuity, and the destiny of the nation rest upon our homes, established by the law of God, guarded by parental care, regulated by parental authority, and sanctified by parental love.


These are not the homes of polygamy.

The mothers of our land, who rule the nation as they mold the characters and guide the actions of their sons, live according to God’s holy ordinances,

and each, secure and happy in the exclusive love of the father of her children, sheds the warm light of true womanhood, unperverted and unpolluted, upon all within her pure and wholesome family circle.

These are not the cheerless, crushed, and unwomanly mothers of polygamy.”

Cleveland insisted on gold-backed currency and pushed tolower taxes.

In 1887, Cleveland vetoed the Texas Seed Bill, stating:

I do not believe that the power…of the general government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering…

A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power…should…be steadfastly resisted…

Though the people support the government, the government should not support the people.


Charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly… demonstrated.

Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character,

while it prevents…among our people of that kindly sentiment…which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood.”


On OCTOBER 25, 1887, Grover Cleveland proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer:

“The goodness and the mercy of God, which have followed the American people during all the days of the past year, claim their grateful recognition and humble acknowledgment…

by His omnipotent power He has protected us from war and pestilence and from every national calamity;

by His gracious favor the earth has yielded a generous return…

by His loving kindness the hearts of our people have been replenished…and

by His unerring guidance we have been directed in the way of national prosperity.


He continued:

“To the end that we may with one accord testify our gratitude for all these blessings,

I, Grover Cleveland, President of the United States, do hereby designate and set apart…a day of thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by all the people of the land.

On that day let all secular work and employment be suspended,

and let our people assemble in their accustomed places ofworship and with prayer and songs of praise give thanks to our Heavenly Father for all that He has done for us, while we humbly implore the forgiveness of our sins and a continuance of His mercy.”

“He is at the Gate, Don’t Disturb me”…

 By Kerry Mauldin
Today was more torrential rain, roads washed out and challenges, but awesome..
MarriKunta (Big Tree) village, right on banks of canal.  We went first time last Oct. and shared Christ with the many who lived in thatch sheds on canal bank.  Today, several stood in church under construction and shared specifically how one year ago they heard the “bracelet story” about Jesus and accepted and took baptism and now one year have joy and no regrets.
The church has grown by 20 to 50 adults and many miracles are taking place, getting much attention in village!!
Dedicate well in Adivemla, drilled by Webbers Falls AG.  Good sweet water about 5 feet from church and no other wells around.  All others were dry holes!!
Church is now being built by the well…
Arvallapally–Dedicate church by Red Oak AG–last year was thatch church and though not finished, they meet inside and we helped give to finish…
Pastor Joshua and Pramila (sweet savor) had no children in Feb, so we prayed.  Today, he so excited shared that 25 days ago they had twins.  Born after 8 months, the tiny boy passed after 1 week, but little Huldah Grace is now 25 days.
No prenatal in villages for premies…  This couple gives us joy…so thankful!!
Alfa Nagar–dedicate wellby Mountain Home AG.  On banks of lake and church built by Haskell AG… Good humble Pastor…
The village that so touched me today is PillaMari–”Childs Tree” Village–
We walk into small house where 30 people meet for church.  They want a prayer shed outside that 100 can sit under.  We have never been here and go to inspect…
Upon entering, first I see Peter.  He is 21and sitting in wheelchair and instantly I figured he has Muscular Dystrophy which I so understand.  He has a gentle smile, but can no longer lift his arms to shake hands.  You have to reach out and grab his hands…
After all the questions and details to figure building the church and all of us giving to build and having prayer, I turned to Peter.
They said he was a good singer…
He began to sing in his chair, “You are glorious, greatest light, King of Kings…”
beautiful voice in this challenged body…
But we sensed something…
Others spoke up…”Till 5 days ago, 21 year old Peter sang with his 19 year old brother Andrew, and they sang so beautiful together.
Andrew also had MD until 5 days ago.”  They related,
Andrew was on the cot and it was his time and his last words for this 19 year old boy:
” Jesus is coming for me, He is even now at the gate, don’t disturb me…” (they have gate to the house) and Andrew was with the Lord.
This was so fresh in their hearts and even as they shared, all I could do was choke on tears.
Now Peter was singing without Andrew, but still a gentle smile as he faces the same thing.
I can’t wait to come in Feb to dedicate Prayer Shed and walk these village streets with Peter and share Christ when its not raining…
Such a reminder, “HE IS AT THE GATE”
Love and appreciate you all so much and so thankful for encouragements…

Obama: Perfect Storm of Judgment

by JohnMcTernan

Verse of the Day

Isaiah 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

As Obama/America Has Done to Israel

Obama is an international evangelist for this sin.Obama is an international evangelist for this sin.

I warned, just a while back, that Obama was going to be severely judged by the Holy God of Israel. He acts as an “evangelist” for promoting the homosexual agenda throughout the world which makes him a target of God’s judgment. He is covered with the blood of dead babies with how he promotes abortion in every way. He is in full support of the Muslim Brotherhood knowing full well that they want to destroy Christians and Israel. He is doing everything he can to divide Israel and Jerusalem.

He is bringing upon himself a “Perfect Storm” of judgment. He is like a lightning rod for judgment, and, unfortunately, he is the president, so God’s judgment on Obama could involve the entire nation. America is ripe for judgment with 60 million dead babies and an unfettered homosexual agenda, plus the nonstop interfering with God’s prophetic plan for Israel.

Unless Obama repents of leading the nation into wickedness and sin, it really does appear that God is about to crush him. No one can do what he does without severe judgment.

Look at the timing of how both national and international calamity is falling on him with no end in sight.

I hope that the Lord breaks Obama as he did with Manasseh, the wicked King of Judah. After God’s judgment fell on Manasseh, he repented and turned to the Lord.

Obama’s Credibility Is Melting 10/23/13 While Kerry was meeting with Netanyahu, Obama is being humiliated not only in America but throughout the world.

“Bluntly, Mr. Obama’s partners are concluding that they cannot do business with him. They don’t trust him. Whether it’s the Saudis, the Syrian rebels, the French, the Iraqis, the unpivoted Asians or the congressional Republicans, they’ve all had their fill of coming up on the short end with so mercurial a U.S. president. And when that happens, the world’s important business doesn’t get done. It sits in a dangerous and volatile vacuum”

The God of Israel is only going to allow this to go so far: then judgmentThe God of Israel is only going to allow this to go so far: then judgment

Netanyahu airs fears of Iran compromise as he meets Kerry in Rome10/23/13 When they meet, dividing Israel is always on the table. Kerry is relentless in his drive to divide Israel.

“A bad deal is worse than no deal, if it leaves Iran with the capacity to produce nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned US Secretary of State John Kerry before the two met in Rome on Wednesday.“I think a partial deal that leaves Iran with these capabilities is a bad deal,” Netanyahu said.”

Merkel frosty on the U.S. over ‘unacceptable’ spying allegations10/24/13 Obama is about to become an international pariah with no credibility. As this happens, think of how he mocks the Lord and His word. Think of how he promotes the Muslim Brotherhood, which is slaughtering Christians and wants to destroy Israel. Think of all the international speeches he makes promoting sodomy.

I cannot see how God’s judgment on Obama can miss America. It appears that the personal judgment on him is going to have a catastrophic impact on America. Watch for the US economy to melt down as Obama is judged.

“German Chancellor Angela Merkel accused the United States of an unacceptable breach of trust on Thursday after allegations that the U.S. bugged her personal mobile phone, and she indicated data agreements with Washington may have to be revised.

Arriving for a two-day summit in Brussels overshadowed by the allegations of eavesdropping by the U.S. National Security Agency against Italy, France and Germany, Merkel said she had told President Barack Obama in a telephone conversation late on Wednesday that the acts were unacceptable.

“It’s not just about me but about every German citizen.

We need to have trust in our allies and partners, and this trust must now be established once again,” she told reporters after arriving in a car with ’007′ in the numberplate.

“I repeat that spying among friends is not at all acceptable against anyone, and that goes for every citizen in Germany.”

Kerry Says World Leaders Mocked Him Over Shutdown 10/24/13 This is what he gets for tempting God over his zeal to divide Israel and Jerusalem. There is more coming if he does not leave Israel alone.

This is also fitting for the man who came back from Vietnam and called the soldiers “Baby Killers” and made other treasonous statements about the nation! What ironic justice for this man!

God is very patient, but He will not be mocked.

Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

As America Has Done to Israel

As America Has Done to Israel

by JohnMcTernan

                                   Obadiah 1:15

For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (to Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

Commentary

PictureGaryIsraeli Ambassador Evrony (right) Receiving Copy of Book!

Last Summer, Dave Hauser, a very good friend of mine, invited me to dinner with Gary Krupp, President of Pave the Way Foundation. I met with Dave and Gary and had a wonderful time. Gary is a Jewish man with tremendous connections within the Jewish community both in America and Israel. He also has connections within the Vatican.

During the meeting, the topic of my book As America Has Done to Israel  came up, and I was able to give Gary a copy. I also shared some of the correlations recorded in the book of what happens to America when the president pressures Israel to divide the land and Jerusalem. He was extremely interested, and as it turned out, immediately began to read the book.

Gary called me and we discussed the correlations. He grasped that the God of Israel was directly warning America not to interfere with His covenant land of Israel.

The part of the book that really caught Gary’s attention and seemed to seal that God was directly dealing with America was the death of President Franklin Roosevelt.

On pages 91-94 in a section titled Roosevelt’s Fatal Mistake, I reported that the death of the president coincided with him stating publicly that he would never allow a Jewish state, in then, what was called Palestine. He made this proclamation to King Saud of Saudi Arabia in a letter dated April 5, 1945. Exactly one week later on April 12, 1945, President Roosevelt died and was replaced by Harry Truman. Truman was one of the greatest Zionists in the world and used his presidency to insure the birth of the modern state of Israel on May 14, 1948.

God removed the man, who was an impediment to His prophetic plan for Israel, and replaced him with a Zionist!

Gary wanted to share the book with friends, so I sent him copies. One person he shared the book with was Zion Evrony the Israeli Ambassador to the Vatican! On October 21 he gave the Ambassador a copy! The Ambassador was very interested in the book and said he would read it.

This is truly amazing that my book would reach the inner circles of the Israeli government along with the timing. The Ambassador has direct contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, so there is potential of the book reaching the Prime Minister and others in the Israeli government.

The timing of this event is astonishing as on October 1, 2013, Netanyahu made a powerful speech to the United Nations. In the speech he made reference to Iran and appearance that the United States and other countries are moving to appease Iran over its nuclear weapons program. He then made a bold statement that Israel’s existence was based on the Bible and quoted verses from the Bible! He was standing on the authority of the Bible!

Netanyahu: The Jews are Home – And We’re Not Leaving 10/03/13 This was one of the most exciting speeches that I ever read. Netanyahu even quoted Amos 9:14,15 as the reason Israel was a nation and that the Jews were not leaving the land.

Amos 9:14,15 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Because As America Has Done to Israel is now so close to getting into the hands of Netanyahu that it is possible God could use the book to help strengthen the Israeli government to resist Obama and the Quartet from creating a Palestinian state and dividing Jerusalem. The thought of the book being used by the Lord to help the Israelis stand on the authority of the Bible is such a blessing to me!

What is now needed is prayer that the book will be read and then passed on to Netanyahu who would read it and act on it.

I am asking everyone who prays for this ministry to pray that God would take the book to next step into the heart of the Israeli government, and they would read it!

God could then use this information to strengthen Netanyahu to stand on the word of God and resist Obama and Kerry as they attempt to divide the nation.

This is so exciting to think that we could be used in God’s end-time prophetic plan for Israel!

Joel 3:19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. (20) But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.

Chase is a huge bank and is warning everyone about the limits on cash withdrawals. Please seek the Lord about your funds in these banks, because this corrupt banking system cannot continue forever. I do not want a penny of my money lost or tied up in a “bail-in” as the plans are already in place for the US banks.

Someone high in the chain of command is authorizing this and no one is being held accountable except if it deals with Islam, then people are fired. This is just a ploy to make us feel good.

“With Saudi Arabia backing the rebels in Syria, and Iran helping to prop up Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship, the longstanding rivalry between the regional powers has found a violent flashpoint. The Saudi kingdom was therefore dismayed to see the US welcoming – albeit cautiously – the new moderate tone coming from Tehran.”The Saudis’ worst nightmare would be the administration striking a grand bargain with Iran,” former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia Robert Jordan told Reuters. Such a deal could, for example, see Washington willing to tolerate Iran’s influence in Syria in exchange for inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

Netanyahu to NYT: Herzl, Churchill were more alone 10/12/13

Egypt’s message to Obama – Keep your aid 10/11/13

Israel’s blind watchmen 10/10/13 Obama tried his best to sell out Israel to the Turks! This man is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood.

” Last week, Turkish President Abdullah Gul told Yediot Aharonot that the apology came too late. And this week, Erdogan hosted Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal for the third time in the past year. Commentators have raised the prospect that Hamas may be hoping to transfer its headquarters from Qatar to Turkey.The Egyptian military is now fighting Hamas in Sinai. The military-backed government blames the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood branch for fomenting the Islamist insurgency there. Egyptian forces have destroyed much of the tunnel network linking Gaza with Sinai that had enabled the cross-traffic of terrorists and munitions between the areas. This week, Egypt announced plans to demarcate Egypt’s territorial waters along Gaza to prevent the transfer by sea of weapons and terror operatives between them.

Under these circumstances, Erdogan’s embrace of Mashaal was a sign not only of support for Hamas and ill will toward Israel. It was a sign of animosity toward Egypt.

It is notable that the same day Erdogan welcomed Mashaal to Turkey, the Obama administration announced it is scaling back US military assistance to Egypt. The administration claims it is freezing the transfer of major military platforms to Egypt to show its dissatisfaction with the government’s crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood government, and its impatience with the military’s refusal to date to call elections after deposing the elected Muslim Brotherhood government in July.”

Jihadists flooding into northern Syria put Turkey on edge 10/15/13 This is very interesting as Turkey was behind Hamas and the flotilla that Israel had to attack. Now they have vicious terrorists right on their border! The very same type that they tried to get into Israel!

The New World via Days of Praise

“For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come.” (Hebrews 13:14)

The phrase “the new world” as applied to the two American continents is believed to have been coined by the explorer Amerigo Vespucci, who claimed to have been the first to sight the actual mainland. This is believed to be the chief reason why “America” was named after him rather than Christopher Columbus, who had “discovered” some of the islands of the West Indies just a few years before. (Actually, some of the Norsemen and possibly others “discovered” this new world several centuries before either one—not to mention the American “Indians” who reached the continent much earlier than any of them.)

Columbus himself has many memorials named after him too, of course. Think of the many cities named Columbus or Columbia, as well as the great Columbia River. Even America itself has been called Columbia in a number of songs and poems.

But was not a “new world” to God! It has been here all along, and we are thankful to be a part of it today.

There is a real new world coming, however! The Old Testament prophet received God’s promise long ago. “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth” (Isaiah 65:17). The New Testament prophet, John, actually described it as seen in a wonderful vision. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth,” he said, and then described some of its beauties (seeRevelation 21:1).

But the apostle Peter transmitted the most wonderful news of all about this new world when he wrote that “we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13). And all of us, who by faith have been made righteous in Christ, shall live there forever! HMM

Barbarians are at the gates

by JohnMcTernan

                               Verse of the Day

Isaiah 19:4 And the Egyptians (Americans) will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.

Commentary

Spiritual leader Muslim Brotherhood declaring to destroy Israel and take JerusalemSpiritual leader Muslim Brotherhood declaring to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem

I know that the context of the Isaiah 19:4 is literally Egypt, but it sure looks like God is turning America over to a fierce king or ruler called Obama and his followers of the Hard Left. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Holy God of Israel has hand chosen this man for judgment on America. He is a perfect fit for a nation that has turned away from God and His word. I realize not every American has rejected God and is in total rebellion against God’s word, but corporately the nation has rejected God at every level.

Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

The Americans appear to be going out of their way to “spit in God’s face”. The military, with promoting homosexuality and starting to persecute believers, is the best example. The vast majority of the church remains powerless,  “dead in the water” and just allowed satan to take over the military. This is really shocking as God’s church is AWOL in the face of this spiritual warfare. It surrendered without a fight.

Satan is now training “his army” to use against the church who surrender to him!

When Jeremiah preached to Israel, he called for national repentance and turning back to the Lord. He did this until King Nebuchadnezzar with his Babylonian army were at the gates of Jerusalem. This is when Jeremiah said it was too late to turn to the Lord and told the Jews to surrender to the Babylonians. The Jews refused to obey Jeremiah, and ended up with the Babylonians destroying Jerusalem and killing vast numbers of the Jews. There comes a time with God, when it is too late to avert judgment.

Jeremiah 27:17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon,and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?

I believe a similar event is about to overtake America. It will be too late for the church to repent and cry out to the Lord for deliverance. America will be turned over to a “fierce king” for judgment. Obama looks like the man as he is heartless. His ruthless, hardened heart is easily proven by his promotion of killing babies in the womb. He even wants to kill the babies born alive from an abortion! He has the heart of an abortionist, which is without mercy and ruthless. I think that ruthless and wicked are the best words for this type of heart.

The  Muslim Brotherhood bragged these were their agents under Obama. It was no secret.The Muslim Brotherhood bragged these were their agents under Obama. It was no secret.

No matter what he says about Israel, his actions show he wants this nation destroyed. The proof of this is his unwavering support for the Muslim Brotherhood. It is impossible to give such support to an anti-Israel, anti-Christian and anti-American terrorist group, unless he was part of it. He knows this terrorist group wants to destroy Israel and make Jerusalem the capital of an Islamic caliphate, yet he is unwavering in his support for it. It is frightening to think of Obama with unlimited power over Americans.

Obama: The Muslim Brotherhood President 10/10/13 Make sure you read this entire article.

“Obama’s unstinting and uncritical support for the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing new. The Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has for years been so glaringly obvious that in July 2012, when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Egypt and had a cordial meeting with now-ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi, foes of the Brotherhood regime pelted her motorcade with tomatoes and shoes for delivering that country up to the rule of the Brotherhood. Protestors held signs reading “Message to Hillary: Egypt will never be Pakistan”; “To Hillary: Hamas will never rule Egypt” and “If you like the Ikhwan [Brotherhood], take them with you!”

And last summer, when the Brotherhood regime was suddenly and unexpectedly toppled from power, numerous anti-Brotherhood protesters held signs accusing Obama of supporting terrorists. One foe of the Brotherhood made a music video including the lyrics: “Hey Obama, support the terrorism/Traitor like the Brotherhood members/Obama say it’s a coup/That’s not your business dirty man.

”Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency. Early in 2009, when the group was still outlawed in Egypt, he met with its leaders. He made sure to invite Brotherhood leaders to attend his notorious speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 4, 2009.”

His unwavering support for killing babies and the Muslim Brotherhood, which are slaughtering Christians in Egypt and Syria, is a sign of what this “fierce king” would do to Americans, if God give us over to him.

This is right before us, and just like there came a time, when the Jews could no longer repent but had to go under judgment, it now appears that the time is right before us, that a similar event is going to happen to America.

With Obama as president, the “barbarians are at the gates”!

The thought of 60 million legally aborted babies with their blood crying out for justice and judgment is frightening. Obama with his cruel Muslim Brotherhood mentality, might turn America into a blood bath. The combination of his abortion and Muslim Brotherhood mentality should drive every Christian to his knees and crying out to God for mercy. There is still a slight window for this, but it might be down to weeks to just a few months. Just like ancient Israel, the Babylonians now are almost at the “gates of America” and then it is too late. Can there be any greater “barbarians” than the Muslim Brotherhood?

Obama’s bullying Israel to divide the land and Jerusalem is a sure sign that God’s righteous judgment on America is VERY close. Where is God’s church?

For you that fear the Lord, continue to pray and intercede. Remember, when God judged Jerusalem with King Nebuchadnezzar, He spared those that cried and sighed over the abominations of the nation. They walked in the fear of the Lord and understood God’s holiness.

Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. (5) And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

We need to keep interceding before the Lord for all the American abominations and trust that He will spare us from the wrath to come.

Above all, no matter what happens to America, do not take your eyes off the coming of the Lord Jesus for His bride. Living with the Blessed Hope will keep you full of peace and joy no matter what chaos and judgment is around us. In reality, the Blessed Hope is the only thing that matters in this world. It is the only thing worth living for in a sin cursed dying world under the judgment of the Holy God of Israel.

May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you in these coming months; may He place His seal of protection on your forehead, as you do not play religious games but cry out to the Lord.

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

What’s the future for Egypt, Syria minorities? – Historian Arnold Toynbee via American Minute

by Bill FedererHistorian Arnold Joseph Toynbee died OCTOBER 2, 1975.

Providing foreign intelligence for the British during World Wars I and II, Toynbee was a delegate to the Paris Peace Conferences.Educated at Oxford “almost entirely in the Greek and Latin Classics,” Toynbee taught at King’s College of London, the London School of Economics, and the Royal Institute of International Affairs.


Toynbee authored many history books, including Greek Policy Since 1882(1914), and The Murderous Tyranny Of The Turks(London, New York: Hodder & Stoughton, 1917), in which he wrote:

“Turks…from Central Asia, ruled during the first two centuries of their conquests by…unscrupulous Sultans, who subjugated the Christian populations of Asia Minor and South-Eastern Europe, compelling part of these populations to embrace Mohammedanism, 

and supporting their own power by seizing the children of the rest, forcibly converting them to Islam, and making out of them an efficient standing army, the Janizaries, by whose valour and discipline the Turkish wars of conquest were carried on from early in the 15th down into the 19th century.”


Toynbee explained:

“The Greeks were leaders of civilization in the Ancient World and in the Middle Ages, till the Greek Empire of Constantinople was conquered by the Turks in 1453…

The Armenians were the first people to make Christianity their national religion…They produced a fine literature and architecture, which Turkish conquest destroyed…

Turks have repressed all symptoms of Armenian revival by massacres…”


Tracing history, Toynbee continued:

“There are three stages in the history of Ottoman tyranny…

Osman, its founder, from whom the Osmanli Turks take their name, was the hereditary chief of a wandering band of Turkish freebooters from Central Asia…carve(d) out a principality for himself at the expense of the neighboring Christians…” 


This Ottoman dominion, which started thus in the 13th century with a few square miles of territory in North-Western Asia Minor, expanded during the next 300 years till it stretched from within a few miles of Vienna to Mecca and Baghdad. 

It destroyed the Ancient Empire of Constantinople, which had preserved Greek learning during the Middle Ages; the free Christian kingdoms of Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Wallachia, Moldavia and Hungary…

Such a career of destructive conquest was a disaster to civilization, and it was only made possible by a ruthless militarism…”

Toynbee described:

“The Ottoman method of conscription was to take a tribute of children from the conquered Christians so many children from each family every so many years bring them up in barracks as fanatical Moslems and train them as professional recruits.

These ‘Janissaries,’ militarized from their youth up and divorced from every human relation except loyalty to their war-lord, were the most formidable soldiers in Europe, and each new Christian land they conquered was a new field of recruitment for their corps. 

The Ottoman Empire literally drained its victims’ blood, and its history as a Vampire-State is unparalleled in the history of the world.”


Toynbee wrote further:

“This was the first stage in Ottoman history; the second…was internal and external decay. 

The Empire was cut short by Austria, Russia and other foreign powers; the subject peoples began to win back their freedom by breaking away from under the Turkish yoke…

The Turkish…tradition of violence and cunning…tried to stave off the consequences of its own rottenness by making the subject peoples even weaker and more wretched than itself...”

Toynbee continued:

“This was the policy of Abd-ul-Hamid, who reigned from 1876 to 1908, and his method was to set one race against another. 

Kurds were encouraged to massacre the Armenians; the Turkish soldiers were ordered to join in the massacre when the Armenians put up a resistance…

Turkish troops came up and burned the village for treason against the Ottoman State. “

Toynbee described the brief euphoria when dictator Abd-ul-Hamid was deposed and they were promised democracy.

But high hopes were dashed when this Turkish ‘Spring’ was co-opted by fundamentalist Muslims who began a genocide, as Toynbee described:


“In the FIRST STAGE the subject peoples paid their tribute of children…

In the SECOND STAGE they were hounded on to destroy each other by the Machiavellian policy of Abd-ul-Hamid.


The THIRD STAGE has been introduced by the Young Turks…a government employing its resources in the murder of its own people…

When the Young Turks came into power in 1908 they announced a program of ‘Ottomanisation.’ 

Every language in the Empire but Turkish was to be driven off…Non-Turkish majority was to be assimilated to the Turkish minority by coercion…

The Turks drive forth Greeks and Bulgars destitute from their homes and possessions. The Magyars mobilize troops to terrorize Slovaks and Romanians at the elections; the Turks draft the criminals from their prisons into the Gendarmeri to exterminate the Armenian race… 

The Young Turks have pursued their nationalistic program by butchery.

The Adana massacres of1909…occurred within a year of the proclamation of the Young Turk Constitution, which assured equal rights of citizenship to all inhabitants of the Empire.  

In 1913 the Turkish Army was engaged in exterminating the Albanians because they had an un-Ottoman national spirit of their own.

This work was interrupted by the Balkan War, but the Turks revenged themselves for their defeat…by exterminating all Greeks and Slavs left in the territory they still retained…

Only a third of the two million Armenians in Turkey have survived, and that at the price of apostatizing to Islam or else of leaving all they had and fleeing across the frontier. 

The refugees saw their women and children die by the roadside, and apostasy too, for a woman, involved the living death of marriage to a Turk and inclusion in his harem. 


The other two-thirds…were marched away from their homes…with no food or clothing for the journey, in fierce heat and bitter cold, hundreds of miles over rough mountain roads. 

They were plundered and tormented by their guards, and by subsidized bands of brigands, who descended on them in the wilderness, and with whom their guards fraternized. 


Parched with thirst, they were kept away from the water with bayonets.

They died of hunger and exposure and exhaustion, and in lonely places the guards and robbers fell upon them and murdered them in batches some at the first halting place after the start, others after they had endured weeks of this agonizing journey.


About half the deportees and there was at least 1,200,000…perished thus on their journey, 

and the other half have been dying lingering deaths ever since at their journey’s end; for they have been deported to the most inhospitable regions in the Ottoman Empire:
-the malarial marshes in the Province of Konia;
-the banks of the Euphrates where, between Syria and Mesopotamia, it runs through a stony desert;
-the sultry and utterly desolate track of the Hedjaz Railway… 

The same campaign of extermination has been waged against the Nestorian Christians on the Persian frontier…

In Syria there is a reign of terror…”

 

Islamic 

Toynbee added:
 
“The ‘Deportation Scheme’ was drawn up by the central government…

No State could be more completely responsible for any act within its borders than the Ottoman State is responsible for the appalling crimes it has committed against its subject peoples…”

Toynbee wrote:

“Turkish rule…is now, oppressing or massacring, slaughtering or driving from their homes, the Christian population of Greek or Bulgarian stock…Armenia and Cilicia, and Syria, where within the last two years it has been destroying its Christian subjects…

The Young Turkish gang who gained power when they had deposed Abd-ul-Hamid, have surpassed even that monster of cruelty in their slaughter of the unoffending Armenians. 


The ‘Committee of Union and Progress’ began by promising equal rights to all races and faiths…

It proceeded…to expel the Greek-speaking inhabitants of Western Asia Minor, and to exterminate the Armenians…


The Muslim peasant of Asia Minor is an honest, kindly fellow when not roused by fanaticism…

President Wilson…called upon…Allied Nations…that they…make good their words:

‘The liberation of the peoples who now lie beneath the murderous tyranny of the Turks…’”


Toynbee continued:

“Turkish tyranny…putting the clock in South-Eastern Europe a century back…to reconquer for Militarism the field which the 19th century won here for Democracy…destroying without interference a multitude of smaller and weaker peoples from Alsace to Romania and from Schleswig to Baghdad…”


Arnold Toynbee was a correspondent for the Manchester Guardian during the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922).


His 12-volume Study Of History (1934-1961), described the rise, flowering, and decline of 26 cultures from Egypt, Greece and Rome to Polynesia and Peru.

After World War II, Toynbee wroteHistorians Approach To Religion (1956), and Change And Habit: The Challenge Of Our Time (1966), in which he predicted that China would become the major global power if the United States and the Soviet Union could not maintain world order.

“Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder,” argued Toynbee, who saw religion as a prime motivation in history.


Toynbee continued:

“When I started, religion was not a prominent feature…

In writing my study, I have been constantly surprised to find religion coming back to fill an even greater place.”


Toynbee concluded:

“So what does the universe look like?..

It looks as if everything were on the move either toward its Creator or away from Him…

The course of human history consists of a series of encounters… in which each man or woman or child…is challenged by God to make the free choice between doing God’s will and refusing to do it. 

When Man refuses, he is free to make his refusal and to take the consequences.”

Killing of Christians

While our government and the main stream media would rather look the other way and even go so far as to deny that the killing and persecution of Christians is happening, the truth is still getting out. It is amazing to me that in this country that was established on the law of Moses, we have a leader who claims to be a Christian who supports a religion whose tenets promote the killing of those same Christians. But then again that should not surprise me really. While our President makes the claim to Christianity, there has been little evidence to support his claim. And yes, I am judging his actions, as follower of Christ it is our responsibility to point out when leaders who claim the mantle of Christianity, lead their followers down the path of unrighteousness. And that is exactly what Mr. Obama is doing. While Mr. Obama could not be in place without God’s approval, that does not mean that he himself is favored by God. God uses ungodly men as well as godly, you only have to look at your Bible to find many instances of this. Look at Nebuchadnezzar  for one.

The culling of the Christians in the Middle East is a forerunner to the destruction of the Jews and the attempted destruction of Israel. It is naive to think that if the killing of the Christians is successful in the Middle East it will stop there. Logic alone will tell us that the efforts will be increased in Europe. The violence is spreading rapidly there as well and Islamic organizations already have established strongholds in South and Central America, as well as in Canada, where it is becoming more and more illegal to even speak against them. And for those who would rather hide their heads in the sand and say that it could never happen here in the United States, let me ask you a question, Why is our Attorney General so quick to sue cities, states, school districts and etc. to make allowances for the practice of Islam, including prayer rooms in schools, and at the same time refusing to allow the same rights to Christians?  Why are Christian principles being disallowed in the military and our service men and women being told that if they state their beliefs, they can be tried for treason? These are just a few instances of change in this country since this administration has been in power. Is it really too extreme to see a time in the near future where Christians suffer the same level of persecution that they are suffering in the Middle East?

We know that for prophecy to be fulfilled, this time must  come and if we are true followers of Christ, we must be sure that we are doing as we are instructed. As Jesus himself told us, as wise man watches the sky to see the signs. So please my friends, do not take your eyes off of heaven. Be prepared, and follow instructions. They are all there written in the Book! Please do not hide your eyes and deny the reality of what is happening in the world.

The pictures below and the article that they are from are just a small example of what is happening, please take time to read the story and ask why it is not being covered. Also ask why our President is so insistent that the very people causing this destruction, be released from prison.

Obama, EU and Arab funded Muslim Brotherhood commit genocide of Christians in Egypt under fabricated ‘Coptic plot’ propaganda |.


Why Does Satan Hate the Black Man?

Do you think that I am crazy asking this question? Consider the situation throughout history of people of African descent. No other race has endured the genocide, slavery and degradation more that blacks, except for those of Jewish descent! Is it simply coincidence?

In Africa itself the black race has been subjected to more violence than any other people in the other continents. They have suffered drought, infestations, starvation, almost constant war, enslavement by all the other races and now being converted whether they wish or not into the radical Islamic religion. Their historic cities destroyed by war or deliberately by those who want their destruction.

In all other countries of the world they are often thought of as less than human or considered second class citizens. Even here in the United States they have suffered both slavery and denigration.

But what is currently happening to the black people here in the United States is a genocide that they themselves appear to be ignorant of in most cases, and even willing partners to in others. They have allowed themselves to be suppressed by those who really want to have power over them and yet really care nothing for them.

Look at who is being aborted, jailed, unemployed, and killed in this country. Most of it is people of African descent. Those in power do not want them to really prosper, they would much rather see them continually dependent on them and yet are rarely called out by the people that they are supposed to be representing.

While many would like to blame it on those who are conservative, if you look at it objectively, you find that most of the policies that are put in place to control people happen when liberals are in power. It is amazing how even many churches are blind to the real enemy of the black man!

Can anyone of faith fail to recognize the face of evil when they see it? It is usually the one with the most beautiful face with the hand out saying let me do that for you. Then once you accept, you are tied to them and they frequently remind you of how much you owe them. The prince of lies has had eons to perfect his ploy and is extremely good at it.

But why the special emphasis on those of African descent? Am I wrong is thinking that there is a pattern here? This is not the will of God, He loves all and sacrificed His Son for all those who choose Him. If it is not the will of God, that just leaves Satan. We have the story of Job as an example, and yet Job knew that he did do anything wrong.

At the same time, it would be hard to accept that people of African descent did something so horrific that they would deserve what they have. In point of fact it is impossible, Jesus did not say that any race would be ineligible. Therefore that just leaves Satan. And I say again, why is Satan so bent on the subjection and eradication of the black man? Because that is the direction that they are headed in many parts of the world. Even here in the United States, the black on black violence is increasing every day. The failure of the schools is leading to increasing ignorance in the communities of all people. Drug use is tearing families apart and yet it is being encouraged by many of those in power. Far from our current leaders trying to help those who are unemployed find jobs, they are instead regulating the jobs out of existence and bringing in even more low skilled and unskilled to take jobs away from those most vulnerable. They are pushing for the abortion of babies at any stage of development, making healthcare substandard and less available that it was previously. They are perverting our faith and abusing our beliefs. They are even encouraging us to kill the lesser and needy in order to profit those they consider better.

Why does Satan hate the Black man?

Jesus Christ – The ONLY TRUE Friend of the Black Man!

U.N. began with high hopes…but ‘a growing disregard for U.N. Charter’-Reagan

Bill Federer

The name ‘United Nations‘ was coined by Franklin Roosevelt for nations fighting the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi) and their axis powers.

Speaking on Justice for War Crimes, March 24, 1944, Roosevelt explained how the original goal of the United Nations involved protecting the Jews:

“In one of the blackest crimes of all history – begun by the Nazis…the wholesale systematic murder of the Jews of Europe goes on unabated…Hundreds of thousands of Jews…are now threatened with annihilation as Hitler’s forces descend…

The United Nations have made it clear that they will pursue the guilty…All who knowingly take part in the deportation of Jews to their death…are equally guilty with the executioner…

The United Nations are fighting to make a world in which tyranny and aggression cannot exist.”

On November 11, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt complimented the Jewish Theological Seminary of America:

“If the world to emerge from the war after a victory of theUnited Nations is to be a world of enduring peace and of freedom, that peace and that freedom must be founded on renewed loyalty to the spiritual values…

Enemies of mankind who are arrayed in battle against us realized this, and therefore began their effort to subdue the world with an assault on religious institutions…which…taught…the dignity and worth of human personality…

In cooperation with Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars…it will in time, I trust, become an increasingly powerful instrument for enlightening men of all faiths.”

The day after Franklin D. Roosevelt’s funeral, President Harry S. Truman told Congress, April 16, 1945:

“Our forefathers came to our rugged shores in search of religious tolerance…Within an hour after I took the oath of office, I announced that the (United Nations) San Francisco Conference would proceed…

In the memory of our fallen President…I appeal to every American…to support our efforts to build a strong and lastingUnited Nations Organization…with Divine guidance, and your help…

I humbly pray Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon: ‘Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart.’””

In April 25, 1945, President Truman addressedUnited Nations delegates at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco:

“At no time in history has there been a more important Conference than this one in San Francisco which you are opening today…

We beseech our Almighty God to guide us in the building of a permanent monument to those who gave their lives that this moment might come.”

The United Nations Charter was signed JUNE 26, 1945, by 51 member nations. It began with high hopes, as President Harry S Truman stated, March 6, 1946:

“We have just come though a decade in which the forces of evil in various parts of the world have been lined up in a bitter fight to banish from the face of the earth both these ideals-religion and democracy….founded on one basic principle, the worth and dignity of the individual man and woman.

Dictatorship…is founded on the doctrine that…men and women and children were put on earth solely for the purpose of serving the State…

The Protestant Church, the Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue – bound together in the American unity of brotherhood – must provide the shock forces to accomplish this moral and spiritual awakening…Unless it is done, we are headed for the disaster we would deserve…

We have tried to write into the Charter of the United Nations the essence of religion.”

One of the first acts of the United Nations was to recognize Israel as a nation on May 15, 1948.

In 1953, President Eisenhower addressed theUnited Nations:

“The whole book of history reveals mankind’s never-ending quest for peace and mankind’s God-given capacity to build.”

Eisenhower’s delegate to theUnited Nations was Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., who sent a letter to every member state, December 30, 1955:

“I propose that God should be openly and audibly invoked at the United Nations

I do so in the conviction that we cannot make the United Nations into a successful instrument of God’s peace without God’s help – and that with His help we cannot fail.

To this end I propose that we ask for that help.”

The U.N.chose not act on Lodge’s proposal.

Charles Habib Malik, President of the United Nations’ General Assembly, 13th Session, who helped write the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, stated in 1958:

“The good (in the United States) would never have come into being without the blessing and power of Jesus Christ…

Whoever tries to conceive the American word without taking full account of the suffering and love and salvation of Christ is only dreaming.

I know how embarrassing this matter is to politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen and cynics; but, whatever these honored men think, the irrefutable truth is that the soul of America is at its best and highest, Christian.”

In subsequent years, the mission of the United Nations has become unclear.

Former President Herbert Clark Hoover told the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1950:

“I suggest that the United Nations should be reorganized without the Communist nations in it.

If that is impractical, then a definite New United Front should be organized of those peoples who disavow communism, who stand for morals and religion, and who love freedom…

What the world needs today is a definite, spiritual mobilization of the nations who believe in God against this tide of Red agnosticism. It needs a moral mobilization against the hideous ideas of the police state and human slavery…

It is a proposal to redeem the concept of the United Nations to the high purpose for which it was created…It is a proposal for moral and spiritual cooperation of God-fearing free nations…in rejecting an atheistic other world.”

By June 10, 1963, President Dwight Eisenhower confided to the National Junior Chamber of Commerce:

“The United Nationshas seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain…

To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum…

To the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and confusion.”

Ronald Reagan addressed the U.N. General Assembly, June 17, 1982:

“Eleanor Roosevelt, one of our first ambassadors to this body, reminded us that the high-sounding words of tyrants stand in bleak contradiction to their deeds…

In these times when more and more lawless acts are going unpunished…some members of this very body show a growing disregard for the U.N. Charter…

President Truman said, ‘If we should pay merely lip service to inspiring ideals, and later do violence to simple justice, we would draw down upon us the bitter wrath of generations yet unborn.’”

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by theUN General Assembly,December 10, 1948, recognized basic human rights, such as:

freedom of opinion and expression; freedom to change religions; right to education; no slavery; no forced marriages; no torture; and no inhumane punishment.

Islamic leaders of 57 countries rejected the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

They formed the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. In 1990, they passed the ‘Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam’ affirming Shariah law as supreme, with the death penalty for those leaving Islam, censoring free speech insulting Islam, and allowing men to be polygamous and beat their wives.

Exodus International apologizes to ‘gay’ community

by JohnMcTernan

Verse of the Day

 John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Commentary

Exodus InternationalExodus International

What we are now witnessing is the continued meltdown of Christianity in America and the West. The Church leaders throughout the West have surrendered to Islam. They are afraid to stand against Muslims and advancement of Islam in society. They are weak and powerless, and the key word is powerless. It is like the church has surrendered or been defeated by Islam. There are a few bright spots, but for the most part there is no courage to stand and preach the gospel.

The same has happened with homosexuality. It appears that the weakness to stand against Islam has now led to defeat in face of the homosexual agenda. The church is also AWOL and weak and powerless in face of homosexuality. Once again, there are a few bright spots, but the key is the lack of power in dealing with people bound in the sin of homosexuality. These two issues are taking over America, Islam and homosexuality show the absence of power amongst Christians and the leadership. This is a big test that is now showing just how powerless the modern Church is.

I do not know much about Exodus International, but apparently it worked with homosexuals in an attempt to free them of this sin. This group just publicly apologized to the homosexuals for what they attempted to do. “Christian Psychologist”, Dr. Mark Yarhouse of Regents University responded, to the collapse of Exodus International, with a short video titled: Can sexual orientation be changed? How should Christians respond? 

After watching this video, it was so clear to me how powerless this man was in dealing with homosexuality. He was powerless with all his studies and modern teachings. He probably uses the NIV which leaves out, “the Lord Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted”. I have ministered to many suffering Christians, who went to psychologists, and not one ever told me, they were prayed over for a broken heart, not one! Many of the homosexuals are suffering from a broken heart and need it healed, before they can be set free from the bondage of this sin.

For the most part, it is a powerless church, notice I did not say all, using powerless translations with powerless authority in the word of God. We are now seeing the end of this phony Christianity with corrupt translations of the Bible using more psychology than the authority of the word of God, when dealing with sin. The power of Islam and homosexuality is going to put an end to the American church. There is no power in the church to stop either one of these agendas.

It was painful for me to watch Dr. Yarhouse’s video. His powerlessness leaps off the video. He offers no real hope for the homosexual suffering with the bondage of this sin. He really is talking about managing their sin. He offers NO hope from the word of God for the freedom from bondage. He offers a Christianity that is NOT from the Bible. It is the doctrines of men and not God. He appears utterly powerless, and his psychology just as powerless.

What the doctor and his colleagues should do is repent and seek the LORD with prayer and fasting to find out why they are so powerless. They should call upon the Lord for the power of the Holy Spirit to break the power of homosexuality. They should also jettison these weak and powerless modern translations of the Bible like the NIV and NASB and rest in the King James Bible.

Are the following two verses, there are dozens more I could post, not for today? Do they not apply to the sin of homosexuality? Is homosexuality now so powerful, that the poor suffering homosexual cannot be set free of this bondage by the gospel of Jesus Christ! I want real Christianity that lives and functions in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ and not this modern powerless nonsense. It is chaff and we want the wheat.

2 Corinthians 10:4,5 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

I have a feeling that Exodus International did not use the power of the Holy Spirit but Babylonian psychobabble.

Exodus International apologizes to ‘gay’ community

Alan ChambersAlan Chambers

The following are excerpts from Alan Chambers’ published apology:

“My desire is to completely align with Christ, his Good News for all and his offer of peace amidst the storms of life. My wife Leslie and my beliefs center around grace, the finished work of Christ on the cross and his offer of eternal relationship to any and all that believe. Our beliefs do not center on ‘sin’ because ‘sin’ isn’t at the center of our faith.””There were several years that I conveniently omitted my ongoing same-sex attractions.”

This man was trying to free homosexuals, when he was still in the bondage of this sin. Eventually, the power of this sin won because he was fighting it man’s way and not God’s way.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me freefrom the law of sin and death.

“I was afraid to share them as readily and easily as I do today. They brought me tremendous shame and I hid them in the hopes they would go away. Looking back, it seems so odd that I thought I could do something to make them stop. Today, however, I accept these feelings as parts of my life that will likely always be there. The days of feeling shame over being human in that way are long over, and I feel free simply accepting myself as my wife and family does. As my friends do. As God does.”

He has denied that Jesus Christ could set him free from this homosexual attraction. He calls it being human and suffers no more shame. How weird is it to be married to a woman and yet at the same time be sexually attracted to men? I have sorrow for this man because he knows nothing about the cleansing power from sin by the Holy Spirit.

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

“More than anything, I am sorry that so many have interpreted this religious rejection by Christians as God’s rejection. I am profoundly sorry that many have walked away from their faith and that some have chosen to end their lives. For the rest of my life I will proclaim nothing but the whole truth of the Gospel, one of grace, mercy and open invitation to all to enter into an inseverable relationship with almighty God.”

It appears that he is giving permission for homosexuals to live in their sin and think that it is approved by God!

“I cannot apologize for my deeply held biblical beliefs about the boundaries I see in scripture surrounding sex, but I will exercise my beliefs with great care and respect for those who do not share them.  I cannot apologize for my beliefs about marriage. But I do not have any desire to fight you on your beliefs or the rights that you seek. My beliefs about these things will never again interfere with God’s command to love my neighbor as I love myself.”

He is now telling the homosexuals to go ahead with homosexual “marriage”. This man is so confused that my head is spinning. Somehow telling homosexuals to “marry” is equated to loving them. So if I tell  homosexuals that homosexual marriage is forbidden by God, does that equate to hate?

I see the thinking of Mr. Chambers as very common in the modern evangelical church. It was shocking for me to encounter many young people, who think that homosexuality is not a real sin. Somehow within the modern evangelical church, homosexuality has become a special sin or has special privilege.

The following verses have not changed and that is because the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ has not changed.

1Cor 6:9,10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(11) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Poured Out For The Nations

by JohnMcTernan

                       Verse of the Day

“Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.”  Philippians 2:17

Pastor Don Schwarz has a tremendous ministry in Africa. I have been helping him with this ministry for many years. Once a month, Pastor Don is going update his ministry.

It is so exciting and refreshing to see how hungry the Africans are for the word of God. It is not like in America, as the Africans are hungering and thirsting for the word of God.

I have also helped Pastor Don by supplying King James Bibles for His pastor contacts. The Africans love the KJB, and this is the only Bible they want!

They need the power of God’s word to deal with Muslims and pagans, so they have tested the KJB and found it to be the authentic word of God.

Magna Carta – ending the absolute arbitrary power of the king via American Minute

  Bill Federer

England was invaded by Vikings from Scandinavia, called ‘Danes, who destroyed churches, libraries and defeated all opposition, except 23-year-old King Alfred.

Forced into the swampy, tidal marshes of Somerset, Alfred, King of the Anglos and Saxons, began a resistance in 878 AD.

According to biographer Bishop Asser, ‘Alfred attacked the whole pagan army fighting ferociously in dense order, and by divine will eventually won the victory.”

Alfred drove the Danes back to England’s coastal area of East Anglia, where he gave their King Guthrum the choice of sailing back to Scandinavia, or converting to Christianity, which he did.

Afterwards, King Alfred the Great wrote his Law Code, drawing from as far back in history as:

Lucius King of Britons (c156 AD) “prayed and entreated…he might be made a Christian”;

St. Patrick’s Celtic ‘Senchus Mor’ Laws (c438 AD);

Laws of Æthelberht of Kent (c602 AD)-the first Saxon king in England to be baptized, by St. Augustine of Canterbury;

Laws of Christian King Ine of Wessex (c694 AD), and
Laws of Christian King Offa of Mercia (c755 AD).

King Alfred the Great, who began the University of Oxford, wrote in the preface to his Law Code the Ten Commandments, parts of the Book of Exodus, Christ’s Sermon on the Mount, and the Acts of the Apostles.

King Alfred wrote:

“These are judgments which Almighty God Himself spoke to Moses and commanded him to keep.

Now, since the Lord’s only begotten Son our God and healing Christ has come to Middle Earth [the Mediterranean World] He said that He did not come to break nor to forbid these commandments but to approve them well, and to teach them with all mildheartedness and lowlymindedness.”

King Alfred’s Law is considered the basis for English Common Law as it contained concepts such as liberty of the individual family and church, a decentralized government and equal justice for all under the law:

“Doom very evenly! Do not doom one doom to the rich; another to the poor! Nor doom one doom to your friend; another to your foe!”

Around the year 911 AD, on the opposite side of the English Channel, ‘Norse’ Vikings, called ‘Normans’, invaded an area that came to be called Normandy, in northern France.

In 1066, the Norman King, William the Conqueror, crossed the English Channel and invaded England.

He replaced King Alfred’s law with a feudal system of government which concentrated power into the hands of the king.

This continued in England till a change began with the Magna Carta.

While England’s King Richard the Lionheart was away fighting the Muslims in the Third Crusade, his brother John was left in charge.

Some renditions of the legend of Robinhood are set in this time period.

Richard returned in 1192, but died in 1199, leaving King John to rule.

Though the Normans had originally come from Normandy over a century earlier, King John lost Normandy and almost all the other English possessions to King Philip II of France by 1205.

England’s barons became so frustrated by this loss and by the absolute and arbitrary power of King John that they surrounded King John on the plains of Runnymede.

There they forced him to sign the Magna Carta, the Great Charter of English Liberties on JUNE 15, 1215.

British judge, Lord Denning, described the Magna Carta as “the greatest constitutional document of all times – the foundation of the freedom of the individual against the arbitrary authority of the despot.”

The Magna Carta limited the unbridled centralized power of the king.

It began the process of redefining government’s purpose from dominating people’s lives into guaranteeing people’s individual rights under the rule of law, culminating in the U.S. Constitution.

The Magna Carta ends:

“…for the salvation of our souls, and the souls of all our…heirs, and unto the honor of God.”

To learn more about Richard the Lionheart and the Third Crusade, read below:

Jerusalem had been a Jewish city since time of King David around 1000 BC, and it had been a Christian city since Emperor Constantine, 313 AD.

Muslims under Caliph Umar took Jerusalem away from the Byzantine Patriarch Sophronius and forced Christian and Jewish inhabitants to live as second-class citizens under a set of “Jim Crow” style laws called “dhimmi.”

Christian pilgrims began to be harassed, massacred and crucified. In the 700′s, Christians were banned from giving religious instruction to their children and displays of the cross were banned in Jerusalem.

In 772 AD, Caliph al Mansur ordered Jews and Christians to be branded on the hand.

In 923 AD, Muslims began destroying churches in Jerusalem. On Palm Sunday in 937 AD, Muslims plundered the Church of Calvary and the Church of the Resurrection.

In 1004, Fatimid Caliph al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah began a ten year persecution where thousands were forced to convert or die and 30,000 churches were destroyed. In 1009, Caliph al-Hakim destroyed the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

In 1075, the Muslim Seljuk Turks captured Jerusalem from Arab Muslims. Gregory Bar-Hebraeus (1226-1286), a Syrian Orthodox Church leader, wrote how Seljuk Turkish Muslims initially tolerated Christians tolerably, then:

“…having seen very much modesty and other habits of this kind among Christian people, certainly the Mongols loved them greatly at the beginning of their kingdom, a time ago somewhat short. But their love hath turned to such intense hatred.”

Travelers returning from pilgrimages to the Holy Land shared reports of Muslim persecution of “dhimmi” Christians.

Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt, which had all been Christian lands, were conquered by Muslims, who then conquered Sicily.

In 1057, the Norman adventurer Robert Guiscard took control of Calabria in the “toe of Italy” and fought against the Muslims of Sicily.

Italian city-states of Pisa, Genoa and Catalonia fought the Muslims who were raiding Italy’s coasts, Majorca, Sardinia, and Catalonia.

In 1071, the Muslims inflicted a major defeat on the Byzantine Christians at the Battle of Manzikert and took control of all but the coastlands of Asia Minor.

Cries begging for help were carried back to Europe. Europe sent help, it was called the Crusades. There were nine major Crusades and numerous minor ones, from 1095 till 1291, when Acre was finally captured by the Muslims.

The First Crusade began when, in desperation, the proud Byzantine Emperor Alexius I Comnenus humbled himself and sent ambassadors to the Council of Piacenza in March of 1095, appealing for aid from his religious rival, the Roman Catholic Pope.

The seriousness of this call for help is underscored by the fact that it occurred just a few years after the Great East-West Schism where the Byzantine Church and the Roman Catholic Church split.

Pope Urban II gave an impassioned plea at the Council of Clermont in 1095 for Western leaders to set aside their doctrinal differences and come to the aid of their Byzantine Christians brethren.

Pope Urban II described how Muslims “compel to extend their necks and then, attacking them with naked swords, attempt to cut through the neck with a single blow.” (Robert the Monk, Medieval Sourcebook, Fordham University.)

With Spain exuberant after successfully driving the Muslims from Toledo and Leon a few years earlier, the First Crusade began in 1097, led by Godfrey of Bouillon. It freed Iconium from the Muslims, though it was later lost.

The First Crusade defeated Turkish forces at Dorylaeum and Antioch, and captured Jerusalem in 1099, holding it for nearly 100 years.

After Muslims conquered Edessa, another crusade was called for by Bernard of Clairvaux in 1147. It was made up of French and German armies, led by King Louis VII and Conrad II.

In 1148, Muslim leader, Nur ed-Din, slaughtered every Christian in Aleppo. The Second Crusade failed to take Damascus and returned to Europe in 1150. Bernard of Clairvaux was disturbed by reports of misdirected violence toward some Jewish populations.

On July 4, 1187, Saladin captured Crusaders at Hattim and ordered their mass execution.

In 1190, Pope Gregory VIII called for a Third Crusade. It was led by German King Frederick I, called Frederick Barbarossa (meaning Redbeard), who was the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. He was joined by Richard I of England and Philip II of France.

Frederick led 100,000 soldiers across Byzantium, driving out Muslims and temporarily freeing Iconium.

He most likely would have freed Jerusalem had he not fallen off his horse while crossing the Göksu River in Cilicia, Asia Minor. Being 67 years old and weighted down with heavy armor, he drowned in waist deep water and the Crusade went into confusion.

Richard the Lionheart was suddenly in charge leading the Crusade and successfully captured Acre. Due to rivalries, Philip II, without warning, abandoned the Crusade and returned to France in 1191.

Richard’s troops came within sight of Jerusalem in 1192, but grew weary as it did not look like they were making an impact. Then word came to Richard that Phillip II was trying to take away Normandy from England, so Richard quickly ended the Crusade to go back and defend his kingdom.

Richard later discovered Saladin was on the verge of defeat and was propping up dead soldiers along the walls.

Saladin allowed some Christians to leave Jerusalem if they paid a ransom, but according to Imad al-Din, approximately 15,000 could not pay their ransom and were enslaved.

Richard sailed away, but was shipwrecked and had to travel on foot across Europe in disguise.

He was recognized near Vienna and captured by Duke Leopold V of Austria. The Holy Roman Emperor, Henry VI, imprisoned Richard at Dumstein for three years.

Legend has it that Richard’s loyal minstrel, Blondel, traveled from kingdom to kingdom across Europe trying to find him by singing Richard’s favorite song. When Richard heard the song, he sang the second verse from the prison tower, and was found.

Richard’s brother, King John, had to raise taxes for the “king’s ransom.” This was the origins of the story of Nottingham, Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood.

The Holy Roman Emperor, Henry VI, prepared for another crusade in 1197, but died from malaria.

Once back in England, Richard ruled only a few years before being shot with an arrow during the siege of a castle in Normandy.

His brother, King John, raised taxes and ruled oppressively.

When he lost Britain’s claim to Normandy after the Battle of Bouvines in 1214, English baron’s were upset, as they also lost their titled lands there.

Angry barons then surrounded King John on the plains of Runnymede on JUNE 15, 1215, and forced him to sign the Magna Carta – the cornerstone of English liberty.

CIA and NSA ‘want to know everything

Verse of the Day

Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Commentary

Major player in the coming 666 Surveillance SystemMajor player in the coming 666 Surveillance System

The recent revelations about the NSA shows us the prophetic hour we are now living in. There is NO doubt that massive computer spying and controls are on us. The spying is about to explode as NSA just put the Utah Data Center online. All the information in the world will pass through this center! With all this information, the government will soon be placing controls on the people. There is no doubt this is coming.

Life as we knew it is now just about to come to an end. Mankind is heading into the 666 Surveillance System, which will be in place, just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ with His bride, the church.

Think of all this high tech and computer power in the hands of someone even worse than Obama! This is exactly what is coming. All this power will be under the control of a world dictator the Bible identifies as the antichrist. The high tech system is now getting ready for him, just as the social system, through the homosexual agenda, is getting ready for him.

Technology Emboldened the NSA 06/09/13 This is truly a great article that shows how this massive spying came about. It was stunning to read how it took just about 10 years to build this massive spying system. Just think of what its capabilities will be 10 years from now? There is now no stopping this system. It is now heading into high speed and eventually complete control over the people.

“The NSA’s advances have come in the form of programs developed on the West Coast—a central one was known by the quirky name Hadoop—that enable intelligence agencies to cheaply amplify computing power, U.S. and industry officials said. The new capabilities allowed officials to shift from being overwhelmed by data to being able to make sense of large chunks of it to predict events.

“The in-country intelligence was paired with larger computer networks capable melding cellphone data with information collected from sensors on drones and other sources, said former officials and defense contractors. Some of these drones use high-power cameras to scan large tracts of earth to look for changes that could indicate the locations of improvised explosive devices.Analysts discovered that the system’s analysis improved when more information was added, so they moved to merge 90-day batches of data.

The result, said a former U.S. official, was an ability to predict attacks 60% to 70% of the time.”It’s the ultimate correlation tool,” a former U.S. counterterrorism official said. “It is literally being able to predict the future.”A computing and software revolution, launched in Silicon Valley a few years earlier, made sifting all that data easier. That was particularly true with the development of Hadoop, a piece of free software that lets users distribute big-data projects across hundreds or thousands of computers.”

NSA's Utah Data Center which will know everything  about you.NSA’s Utah Data Center which will know everything about you.

CIA says it ‘wants to knoweverything’06/10/13 With the software that is coming, along with the massive high-speed computers, this is going to be a reality. The Utah Data Center is now all set up and running. It is just waiting for all this information to build a dossier on everyone on the planet! 

I hope that you can see how all this is now converging. satan is setting this up for the “man of sin.” It is breathtaking to watch all of this coming together. What an honor that God allows us to see this happening.

Use all of this to draw closer to the Lord Jesus, so you can prepare, just as a bride would for the groom. There is NOTHING left for this world but “A” and “A”: antichrist and Armageddon.

We look forward to the two blessings: The Blessed Hope of Jesus returning for His church, and the blessing of being called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

What do you look forward to? Is it the Blessed Hope of being with Jesus Christ, or is it looking for the antichrist? Now is the time to choose Jesus Christ as time is running out.

This entire system that we are watching being built will be totally destroyed at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Nothing of it will be left.

May the LORD God of Israel bless and protect you.

Revelation 1:7  Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Hard Left

Kerry: ‘In Africa, Asia, Europe, and Americas, Our Diplomats Are Assisting Local LGBT Organizations 06/08/13 The American government is now a vector for sin throughout the world. I believe that this is going to bring a special judgment on the government and the nation. The American people voted twice for him, and America is now given over to sodomy. Day by day we can see America falling to the Hard Left reprobate agenda. America and sodomy are becoming one. This is the point that triggers God’s righteous judgment on the nation. It has to be very close.

“I wanted to take a moment to join people around the world in celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride month,” Kerry said.”Across the globe, in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas our diplomats are assisting local LGBT organizations and supporting local human rights advocates working to promote equality, create dialogue, and ensure protections for LGBT individuals.Kerry indicated that this support extended to U.S. financial aid. “Through the Global Equality Fund, the State Department has already provided critical emergency and long-term assistance to promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons in over twenty-five countries,” said Kerry. “And our support will continue to grow, in cooperation with other equality-minded governments, foundations and corporations.”

The Not-So-Veiled Threat to Non-Muslims in Tennessee 06/07/13 This shows how serious Obama is to protect and promote Islam! I am going to follow this very closely.

“A well-informed crowd responded with calls of “taqiyyah” when members of AMAC, a group that bills itself as “a bridge between the Muslim community and law enforcement,” touted Muslim contributions to U.S. society and their dedication to upholding American values. (Taqiyyah doctrine obligates Muslims to deceive infidels as part the required effort or jihad to institute Islamic doctrine or shariah).”

Muslims Demand (& Get) Prayer In Public Schools – Attack Off Campus Bible Studies 06/07/13 Americans do not want the God of Israel in their schools so now they are getting allah.

Air Force Removes Video that Mentions God 06/07/13 The purge is on. The Hard Left reprobates are just using the Muslims and atheists as an excuse to purge anything to do with God from the military and then the country.

Administration Defends ‘Prism’ Surveillance Program 06/07/13 When reading this, think of what the IRS just did, along with all the lies from the Justice Department forcing people to support the homosexual agenda.

Israel and the Middle East War

Benjamin Netanyahu hints at Israeli action in Golan Heights 06/09/13 Syrian tanks were close to the Israeli border and Israel warned Syria it was going to attack. Syria keeps on getting more dangerous by the week.

“Only last week, we saw battles close to out border on the Golan Heights,” he said. “The crumbling of the UN force on the Golan Heights underscores the fact that Israel cannot depend on international forces for its security. They can be part of the arrangements. They cannot be the basic foundation of Israel’s security.”

First clash between Syrian rebels and Iraqi soldiers. Baghdad bankrolls Assad’s war 06/09/13 This war is expanding very fast. If Assad wins, Israel will have the Iranian army on its border. If Assad losses, the Muslim Brotherhood is on the border. I still think that Assad is going to fall.

“The failure of the rebels’  first assault set back their bid to loosen the grip of loyalist Syrian troops on this strategic border crossing.debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report that while all eyes have been drawn in recent days to Hizballah’s proactive military involvement in Assad’s war, the Iraqi role has been under-reported an treated as scattered and sporadic military actions, whereas in fact, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has even outdone Hassan Nasrallah in the generosity of his assistance for propping Assad up. We have learned that he has advanced unlimited Iraqi credit for his war chest,, placing Iraq’s multibillion-dollar oil revenues at his disposal. US, British and French importers may not realize they are contributing to Assad’s war effort against the rebels with their purchases.”

Jordan war games: Patriot batteries, F-16s and 4,500 US troops near Syrian border 06/10/13 War games getting ready for war? Hardly any news source is covering that our military is now in Jordan.

Iran eyes 30 nuclear bombs a year: Israel minister 06/10/13 This causes a problem, not only for Israel, but also for Saudi Arabia and the Sunni Muslims. Iran wants to dominate Islam as well as destroy Israel. Saudi Arabia is in great danger with Iran. Because of this, the Sunnis must defeat Assad and break Syria’s alliance with Iran. The war going on in Syria has huge consequences, and I think it is going to get bigger.

‘US successfully tests bunker buster bombs’ 06/09/13]

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel06/06/13 This shows that 79% of the Hard Left in Great Britain believe in sanctions against Israel.

Financial Armageddon

U.S. Suffers Biggest Pay Drop On Record, As Workers Squeezed Tighter06/05/13

“Hourly pay for nonfarm workers fell at a 3.8 percent annualized rate in the first quarter, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Wednesday. This was the biggest quarterly decline since the BLS started keeping track in 1947. Some of the drop was payback for a 9.9 percent surge in hourly pay in the fourth quarter of 2012, as employers shoveled money out the door to avoid tax changes they expected to take place in 2013.”

Islam and IslamoFascism/Jihad

Muslim Riots and Leftist Willful Blindness 06/10/13 It is amazing to watch the Hard Left defend Islam. In country after country, the Left will not blame the Muslims for anything. They simply are bonded with the Muslims and will not break that bond. Even as the Muslims burn cities, they still defend them.

Jihad on Egypt’s Christian Children 06/07/13 The violence committed by Muslims is never ending. It is not limited to one country but all over Islam.

Is Europe on the verge of demographic collapse? 06/07/13 The answer is, yes. God is turning this continent over to Islam for judgment. The Europeans do want the God of Israel and babies, so, He is turning them over to allah and Islam. This is a very slow judgment, but it is a very sure judgment. Great bloodshed is coming to the Europeans as Islam is fast gaining power.

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
