So many Millennials are embracing socialism today. They have grown up being educated in school systems that are promoting the evils of America and capitalism and the superiority of socialism. What does socialism really entail? Is it the best system in the world today? Should it be the system the United States adopts in place of capitalism?  Let us examine what socialism really means for all of us.

What do socialists think of capitalism? They see capitalism as a system of greed and selfishness. People are ripping off their neighbors in the pursuit of money. Meanwhile socialists see socialism as a system where everyone is selfless and will labor for the common good. Thus, all motivation of people is to help someone else. That is really looking at things through rose-colored glasses. This is where we are being fed the philosophy from the great debate throughout our history that man is ultimately good. If man is so good, why do we lock our doors when we leave our homes, and why does something so evil as capitalism exist then?

If we examine the socialist societies that have existed like the most classic of them all the Soviet Union, what has been the result? Well, we can go through a checklist(1) and let us start with security. One can say socialism is superior to capitalism in providing security. It is somewhat like one taking out a very expensive insurance policy to prevent one from falling into the consequences of the worst possible thing happening. One would sacrifice a huge amount of their wealth to maintain a minimal lifestyle, meaning they have to sacrifice any luxuries they wish to have in their life.

So, for a working person this is a bad deal while for those who are lazy or incompetent, this is a good deal. They do not have to really work to get a minimal lifestyle. What is basically happening is the government forces the many to suffer to make it easier for the few who leech off those who are working hard.

Second on our checklist is entrepreneurship. Socialism believes in equal outcomes. How does one create equal outcomes? There is only one way that can possibly happen; through totalitarian means. We are seeing the seeds of this in America, today. We have an ever expanding government trying to inflict social justice upon its citizenry; not allowing businesses to function without following its politically correct dictates. We have watched the courts cut back some of these efforts to dictate to businesses what they can do or what service they must provide even though they object to provide such services for conscious sake. Socialism tries to spread out a doctrine through totalitarian dictates to create a society that follows one single political belief.

Third on our checklist is innovation. To create a new product takes a lot of money and time. It usually entails a lot of misses before one gets a hit so to speak. One may try nine ideas that fail before they get one that takes off. For that reason in capitalism, the bigger the risk, the more the reward. This risk-reward relationship encourages people to try to innovate. They will decide to take the risk to reap a big reward. Socialism does not allow one to reap a big reward, so innovation is stifled. Look at all the technology in the United States we have, today. Where would we be without innovation? I dare say things like cell phones, the Internet and fast travel around the globe would not exist if not for innovation.

Fourth on our checklist is economic growth. No country matches the United States in economic growth today nor over the period of the last 220 years. Socialist countries like the Soviet Union were an economic basket case. Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba are economic basket cases in today’s world. The West who has been the home of capitalism has had far more economic growth than most any other place in the world. That of course would be argued against by those who say the West exploited the rest of the world. Well, assume that is so. Then, why was the West in position to exploit the rest of the world in the first place? Maybe, because its economic system was superior to those other countries enabling them to do it. Why were those other countries not advanced enough with their systems to rise up first to exploit the West? You have to think about things and ask the appropriate questions without assuming things are true someone else tells you is a truth.

What has been happening over the last century and more is something the leftist media and educators will not tell you today? The poorest of the poor in this world have been elevated to superior conditions to what their fathers experienced in the past. True, there are people who have nothing. That will always be the case, but the percentage of people who were in poverty at the beginning of the 20th century has been dropping as a result of capitalism. Today, the poor in the United States have things like cell phones. As John Kennedy said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Economic growth in the world has been beneficial to the poor as a whole through capitalism.

Fifth on our checklist is the adaptability of socialism. Capitalism is good at distributing capital to where it is most valued. If it was not, then people who want to pay for something will go somewhere else to attain the good. If one wants to stay in business, they need to provide what their customer wants. That is strong incentive.

On the other hand, socialism is where the government is spending someone else’s money. There is no incentive for a bureaucrat to necessarily put capital where it is most valued. After all, the bureaucrat will still be in business so to speak even if he or she spends money on the wrong thing or uses it in a non-productive way. Thus the bureaucrat is not concerned about losing money. In addition, we have politicians who write out regulations for a company to follow certain rules when these politicians have no experience or knowledge in how to run a business. That is a catastrophe waiting to happen. What we get is a system run by people who cannot adapt in a prompt way to meet the public’s needs.

Number six on our checklist is wasteful spending. Milton Friedman once said, “Nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else’s resources as carefully as he uses his own.” This leads us to the realization that the more capital a government tries to distribute, the more it will be wasted. The market will pay a severe penalty if it does not allocate resources properly. Failure means the companies that do this will go under.

So, a socialist government can never compete with the private sector when it comes to allocating resources. Such a government does not worry about the penalties of failure in allocating resources. After all, the government knows it will continue to have a steady stream of tax revenue to throw away on any whim it has. Thus, wasteful spending is a norm for socialist governments and really any government. The fact of the matter is that while a business will go bankrupt for inefficiency, a government program that is wasteful will probably have its budget increased the next year.

The last thing on our checklist is human nature and its connection to socialism. Adam Smith said, “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.” A man will work much harder to take care of himself first and his family before he will work to make money for the state. Socialism argues against this implying that man must work for the state. How can one imagine himself working for the state and ignore those around him, the very ones he interacts with daily?

It is not human nature to work for the good of some entity that one cannot sense in any physical way. One will first want to work for himself or herself and then to all those of which he or she has the closest of relationships. Socialism thus is trying to appeal to a spirit of nationalism to get people to sacrifice to the state, and is this not what leftists preach against today in America, that we should not condone nationalism? Whether you like it or not, if you are a socialist, you will have to embrace nationalism in one form or another. It is in socialism though, that a totalitarian regime and its heads is what you end up idolizing which is why we have the Stalins, and the Castros, and the Maos.

Socialism is where a small group of people control all property. They determine what the common good will be and force everyone else to comply. We see the seeds of this in America today. Conservative speech on campus is protested (often violently) and those in charge along with the media try to suppress all non-politically correct speech.

Socialism removes your freedoms. It does not give you more freedom. It does not create wealth since governments do not create wealth. It spends other people’s money until there is none left to spend. Wealth is only created by the private sector, and to embrace socialism will mean everyone will end up with an equal outcome; extreme poverty except for those few who are in charge who will only service themselves.

Beware the Prophets

Posted April 3, 2019 by cbrannan67319

Do you think if a prophet gets something right that we should believe them when they prophesy? We need to explore that because it has great implications today in what we are hearing from prophets today regarding Donald Trump. We must learn to beware, for not all words are from God.

Deuteronomy 13:1-3 says:

If there arises among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass of which he spoke to you saying, “Let us go after other gods (which you have not known) and let us serve them; you shall not hearken to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God is proving you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

What this passage is telling us is that if a prophet gets a word right, but there is an error in the message, then we must not heed that prophet’s word. I have heard of many prophecies regarding Donald Trump. Some said he would win in 2016. Some said it before he ever decided to run. However, there are other words mixed in with such prophecies that deliver a false message. We are being tested to know whether we love the Lord God with all our heart.

One such prophet I will not name was interviewed by CBN in 2016. He said that in 2011 God told him Trump would be president which was before Trump had made a decision to run. God told this prophet that the Trump administration would be a time of prosperity for the country and that the economy would rebound. He said Trump would win again in 2020 because of this prosperity. He added that the false media would turn around and actually support him.

Even though he said this has not come to pass yet that it would come to pass. So, he prophesied that this is a time of financial recovery, and that it is not God’s time for His children to come into persecution on the level it was headed to when Obama was president.

These are all good sounding words for this country, but can we actually believe them? After all, Trump did become president, and the economy has come back from some of its problems dating back to the end of the Bush years. I say that there is a problem with this message.

James 3: 8-18 says:

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.

Does a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? or a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

 

What do we see coming out of the press today? We see what is described above: envying, strife, confusion and every evil work plus extreme hypocrisy. What that prophet describes is the press will become people that they are not. They are sensual, earthly, devilish and lie against the truth. Why? Because they are full of sin and do not want Donald Trump to expose that sin. That is why they hate him so. That is why people react to him as they do, because God is causing them to react to their sin being exposed.
    One person commented on my blog saying to me that no rational person would support Trump. This was from someone who identified themselves as a Christian. They said Trump lies about everything. I then asked him to name what he has lied about. He said he would have to do a search on that. He was making statements of which he was sure was true without any proof. Why? Because there was a sin in his life God was exposing by Trump just being president. When it comes to Trump, God is using him to expose sin in others. People across this country with hidden sin are filled with hate for him, because Trump causes them to react, exposing their sin and allowing the public to observe what kind of person they really are.
    The press will not ever support Trump is my belief. They practice every evil work and are the children of Satan. You cannot have salt water and fresh come out of the same spout. The press would have to repent and be converted to ever do that, and that cannot happen without the church repenting first.
    I feel that prophet’s word is misleading. It is like a Kim Clement word or a word one would see on the Elijah List. It leads us to say, everything is going to be alright and thus does not lead us down the road to repentance. To change things in this country requires us to get uncomfortable and remove those idols out of our life. I do not see the church willing to do that in this country. One pastor when giving a prophecy about Trump winning in 2020 had one thing right for certain; and that was the church in the United States is not seeking justice. While injustice in our society grows, the church does nothing and waits on our government (the agent of injustice) to create justice in our society. How naive?
    Trump is here to expose the fallacy of political correctness (social justice). He, however cannot effect a change without the church doing its job, and alas the church has abdicated all its responsibilities to the government. Who takes care of those in need in this country? The government has taken over that job from the church to a large degree. The government should not be doing it at all; the church (we) should be doing it all. The government only takes away our freedoms and our money to increase its power over us when the church abdicates its responsibilities.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live for God.  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. (Galatians 3: 16-21)

  The church is not operating in faith regarding justice in this country. Because of that, we have been operating by the works of the law. We say, “The law is what it is, and we cannot change it.” Yet, lawlessness is allowed to abound, injustice and the like, and we think we cannot change it. Where is our faith? Faith requires action and thus with no action, there is no faith.

We should be protesting to all government officials about the injustice in our society. We should be out there demanding change. We don’t do it because we have not looked internally yet at our own sin. We do not want to remove the idols in our own heart. If righteousness comes by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. We are living under the law and not accepting the grace that God has given us to change things in this country. So, that prophet is in error I feel in my spirit.

Trump Shines a Light on the Evil

Trump is being given credit by some for causing the left in the United States into doing crazy things. Is it really Trump, or is it something else behind the lunacy of the left? We can examine one passage of scripture that will shed some light on this question. To know how to defeat the left, one has to know what to do to cause them to show who they really are in reality.

Beginning in chapter 6 and continuing into chapter 7 of the book of Acts, Stephen is confronted by the religious hierarchy and placed on trial. He then began to preach to them about the history of the Jews and then comes to the building of the temple by Solomon. Then he says:

“You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in your heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Spirit: as your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? They have slain them which showed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom you have been now the betrayers and murderers: who have received the law by the dispensation of angels and have not kept it.” (Acts 7: 51-53)

The next verse goes on to say:

When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.”

Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him. (Acts 7: 54-58)

Why did they stop their ears and want Stephen dead? What was it they could not stand to hear? The answer is simple; they could not stand to hear the truth. Stephen had to be silenced. He was a witness of the righteousness of God and spoke truth that exposed their sins.

This is what is happening in the United States, today. Donald Trump is speaking truth and the left cannot stand to hear it and must stop the truth from coming out at all costs. It is not really Donald Trump with whom they are at war but rather God and his Word. God’s word exposes the hidden things in the darkness. It cuts a divide between the soul and spirit. The soul makes up the fleshly part of our being, and the spirit makes up the spiritual part of our being. The people who have put themselves into opposition against Trump are fighting to hide their sins from being exposed. Yet, for all their efforts, we are seeing those hidden things come out when we watch the corruption that has existed and still does in the FBI and the Justice Department.

Many people do need to be prosecuted for their actions. Any of us who would do half of what they have done and even less would be prosecuted and sent to prison. God demands a just balance and a just weight. They all are going to pay in the end even if they get away with their crimes in this life. They still have to face God at the Great White Throne Judgment.

My feeling about what is happening is certainly that God is exposing all the corruption instilled in our society. I said this is what was happening before Trump even won the Republican nomination for president. We have seen Republican and Democrat line up against Trump these last 2 years. All of them have sins they are hiding. God has been using Trump to cause them to react to God’s truth, so that we can see where their hearts truly lie. It is not where they have been saying it is when we see what they have spoken or written. God’s word is bringing out the truth about the rottenness in their hearts. These people call Trump evil when it is the words that proceed out of their mouths that expose the evil that exists in their souls. God is love. He does not hate, and yet these people hate Donald Trump and all of his family. These people have no relationship with God. So, who truly is evil?

I know, however our time is short to correct what is wrong with this country. For all that God has been exposing through Trump for all of us to see, it is not Donald Trump who can turn things around. It is us. We have to pray. We have to change. We have to repent, first. God has been waiting for his church to turn things around in the country, and yet his church is putting all its hope into what Trump can do. He is one man. He cannot change our hearts. It is where our hearts lie that determine the fate of this nation. God birthed this nation through a desire in his people to worship him and obey his commandments. That is no longer the case with today’s church. Today’s church has gotten too fat to want to really seek God with all its heart. And so, we are at a crossroad that has a path we are taking to destruction.

I have already sensed in the spirit that this nation is doomed and God has already given the command for its destruction. Most likely a Democrat will succeed Donald Trump and lead us to that day of destruction. God gave us more time through the prayers that were sent up when Obama was president, but God’s church still won’t make the sacrifices it has to make to change things that must accompany prayers. That is why we are failing to stop the sin that dominates our society from increasing daily. If we would only turn from our wicked ways, this country could have a new birth. But, too many in God’s church are not willing to make that sacrifice, and so the end is really just around the corner as things stand, today.

Look At What Satan Wants

Recently and still ongoing, we are witnessing women coming out charging Judge Roy Moore with sexual misconduct. Despite the fact there are some interesting conflicts or twists in these charges, practically all Republicans in Congress and the media are throwing Roy Moore overboard. Regarding the recent attacks on Judge Roy Moore, is it surprising that such accusations come when he becomes a serious threat to be an anti-establishment Republican sitting in the Senate? Have we not seen such tactics before starting with Judge Thomas in his bid to be put on the Supreme Court? Those charges were proved to be false when inaccuracies on the time-line were given in testimony by what was supposed to be corroborating evidence by Anita Hill associates.

We also have time-line inaccuracies it would seem with the woman charging Judge Moore with attempting to accost her. She says she could not get out of the car suggesting he had locked the doors from the drivers side to prevent her from escaping. The problem with that little accusation is that such locks were not present yet in any cars at that time. Those locks did not show up until the 1980’s. Also, the supposed writing in the Yearbook strangely resembles Judge Moore’s signature on a divorce case he handled, strongly indicating a forged document so to speak put into the Yearbook. Do not be naive to think that the Democrats would not stoop to such tactics to defeat any Republican they target.

I for one will not rush to judgment over anyone. God says in his word, “Judge not that you be not judged.” There is not a single person who has turned against Judge Moore who does not have something in their past that can damage them. When you judge Roy Moore, you are making God judge you on your past, too. How many of Judge Moore’s accusers (including the media and those representing us) are not engaged presently in something like sexual misconduct or some other sin at the present? Al Franken has now been exposed as guilty in far more recent times. I bet there are more recent events with him, also.

So, what does God say in his word when we consider sins that are 40 years old? Let us examine what he says.

The soul that sins, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

All his transgressions that he has committed, they shall not be mentioned to him: in his righteousness that he has done he shall live. (Ezekiel 18: 20-22)

Notice these accusations go back decades. What has he done since then? Where are the accusers? It seems to me if he did any of this, then he has turned from his wickedness. If he has, then none of us are in a position to judge him since God says in verse 22 that none of these sins he has committed will be mentioned to him from God. God has forgiven him. Anyone who says Judge Moore is not worthy to serve in the Senate has now made themselves judge and jury while God imputes to him no sin at all. You are now then guilty of judging, which means you shall be judged by the same measure you have judged Roy Moore.

All you have to do to know what is going on here is to look at Satan. What does Satan desire? He desires to take Donald Trump down. He desires to take down anyone that would be an ally of Trump. He is obviously (as one can see with open spiritual eyes) trying to prevent Roy Moore from becoming a Senator. I do not for one want to put myself on Satan’s side.

It is our jobs as Christians to defeat Satan. We are not supposed to wait for Jesus’ return, but instead we are supposed to be winning this world for Christ. You cannot let evil reign and wait for Christ’s return. You are charged with preaching to the whole world the Gospel. Jesus is not planning to return to this earth to be greeted by a powerless defeated church. He plans to return to a victorious church. Whatever Satan tries to do, it is our job to defeat his purpose. Do not let Satan have his way in this matter! Which of you is without sin; let him or her cast the first stone.

What I can tell you about what is going to happen is that everything the enemy does to stop Trump like attacking Judge Moore is going to end up causing all these secret sins and agendas to be exposed. What has happened with Al Franken is just a taste of what will be coming out in the next few weeks and months. This is a season where God is exposing the hidden dark secrets and agendas that were designed to destroy this nation.

God is trying to wake his Church up to save this nation. I doubt the Church will ever wake up, but God always gives us a chance before he gives up and begins full judgment on a nation. We have a small window in which to repent; will the Church in this country ever recognize that it is the problem and not what Satan does? Satan will be defeated when the Church does what God has commanded us to do.

Destroy the President At All Costs

Many months ago I wrote how I thought the Nebuchadnezzar spirit behind President Obama would manage to stay in office. I thought he, himself would have to remain in the office somehow, but things did not turn out quite as I suspected. Behind Obama controlling what he did in the White House was this Nebuchadnezzar spirit. I got it right in my book written back in 2009 that this spirit is inside the White House. Today, it is still present ruling this country.

To be clear, it has no control over Donald Trump. It, however is still calling the shots behind the scenes leading this country to destruction. God’s call for repentance has not been met by his people in this nation. God’s people developed a false security by placing their hope in that things would change when Trump took office. All you have to do is look how hard the enemy is fighting to remove him from office to see that we are by no means clear of God’s judgment on this nation.

In the end they will succeed to destroy this nation if we do not repent. Donald Trump is not a savior, but he is a lightning rod. He speaks truth, and then those in the dark erupt into rants when all the lies and hypocrisy they have been promoting are exposed by what Donald Trump, himself brings to the light. It is just like the early days in the church. Stephen who was martyred exposed the evil that led to Jesus’ crucifixion and the crowd went nuts. They stoned him to death at that point. Truth will always bring a violent response from those who work the works of Satan. They will try to silence those who expose their evil works.

Today, you have the narrative going around by the Republicans and the press that the only evil people in Charlottesville were the Neo-Nazis, skinheads or anyone else who were in support for protecting the statue of a Confederate leader. That is of course absurd. To support keeping such a statue up does not make one evil. It is the United States which was the first major country in the world to eradicate slavery. If they have a problem with our past, then they should have a greater problem with all the other countries in the world that followed or have not followed the United States’ lead. But that is not the concern of those who came to Charlottesville as counter-protesters. These were largely paid leftists from people like George Soros who were bused in to start a confrontation. This is what they did at Berkeley in recent months and in Baltimore among other places. This was a plot to start a confrontation and blame President Trump for it all. The media of course pushes this narrative every hour of every day.

Now we have one Confederate statue after another being pulled down by mayors and by mobs. Today in the United States, we are getting a taste of what it is like to live under ISIS rule. They destroys historic monuments, too. Remember, in WWII it was Muslim countries who were ideologically allied with the Nazis. They like the Nazis like to control thought. You must be ideologically pure; you must think like they think. We see the ironically named Antifa and others using mob violence to take down Confederate statues using Nazi tactics. Tell me, who are the real Nazis in this country? After all, socialists are leftists, and Nazis are socialists.

In the book of Daniel, we have the story about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They were Jews who were giving positions of authority in Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom. When they refused to bow down and worship the golden image Nebuchadnezzar had made, they were brought before Nebuchadnezzar by those who accused them. Sounds like our press of today who constantly make accusations against President Trump. Nebuchadnezzar gave them a second chance to fall down and worship this image, but they again refused. This made Nebuchadnezzar furious. Remember that it is the Nebuchadnezzar spirit that has been in charge of this nation since Obama took office. What do you think happened next?

Nebuchadnezzar sent them to the fiery furnace to be burned alive. When those who bound them to throw them into the furnace came up to the edge, the fire from the furnace struck them and killed them. Meanwhile Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego went into the furnace and were never touched by the fire and heat. God witnessed to all that he was God. Nebuchadnezzar had to acknowledge that God was a God above all gods.

Donald Trump is this trio of men. The truth he expresses acknowledging God as the ruler of this country brings out a hysterical reaction from everyone in Washington D.C. who only believe in political power. The Nebuchadnezzar spirit has condemned him to death, but God is in control. All that they try to do to him will not prosper. Pray that all these hidden secrets behind these riots started by leftists, the lies by the media and the hidden agendas by Republicans to keep the status quo will be exposed. Everything hidden in the dark will come to the light through this process as God tries to wake up his people before it is too late for this nation.

One of these days, the exposing of all the filth and dirt that has brought this country to the pitiful moral shape it is in today will come to an end. When it does, if God’s people have not awoken to the fact the he alone is this nation’s savior, then judgment will begin in earnest and Donald Trump will no longer be the president of this country. What are you waiting for Christians? A man is not God. God is the one we have to depend on for salvation. He sent Jesus and the Holy Spirit to give us the salvation path and the power to truly change things to save this country. But until we put our trust in him, there only awaits destruction for what was once the greatest country in the world.

 

 

The Final Warning

Posted December 6, 2016 by cbrannan67319

For more than seven years I have been warning what is coming to this nation. I have warned you that the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar controls the White House and is God’s instrument to judge this nation. I am bringing a close to these warnings with this message. What awaits us is for all to see who would not act upon these warnings. The time of my usefulness has come to an end. I will address here the false prophecies that have gained credence to many people today since the election of Donald Trump a few weeks ago.

There came a day when Jeremiah the Prophet gave his final warning. God told me to rewrite the book of Jeremiah for the United States, today. What I wrote in my book were the same words Jeremiah used for the Jews in his day. God adapted Jeremiah’s words which were written around 2600 years ago for us in the United States in our time. I have watched these words written in my book come to pass one by one without any falling to the ground. Everything I said in my book has proved to date to be 100% accurate. Maybe, I said some things not written in my book that did not turn out to be correct, but I like you have to surmise things when God does not give us the details about what he says will happen in the future.

There have been many prophets on television and on the Internet saying conflicting things. Major prophets have turned out to have missed it along with more than 90% of those on the Internet. I have pointed out where these prophets have missed it and have been rebuked by some of them. One who believed what William Branham said in his prophecy about a woman rising to power insisted to me he never missed God and that Hillary would become president. I pointed out to him that a Jezebel spirit is not a spirit of judgment but rather it was Nebuchadnezzar whom God used to judge the kingdom of Judah. He then began to attack me viciously, and said I did not know God. Guess who was wrong in the end.

I am not one who is gifted with prophecy. I can operate to a degree prophetically, but my specialty from the Lord is discernment. I can see satanic spirits operating behind the scenes and watch them use people. I cannot see which spirit it is in every case, but in the coming days, God has told me he is expanding my ability to see to a greater degree these spirits. I have seen many of these spirits deceiving those trying to act as prophets, today. The latest batch are calling Donald Trump a Cyrus. They are showing their lack of scriptural knowledge when they do this.

I have already addressed why Donald Trump cannot be a Cyrus. You can look it up to see that explanation. I will now disclose where prophets have missed the boat who believe all things will be well for the United States since Donald Trump has been elected. A lot of this I have already mentioned, but the Holy Spirit has given me one last passage of scripture to pass onto you.

In an earlier recent piece, I mentioned a passage of scripture given to me that showed us that Donald Trump has become our golden calf as mentioned in the book of Exodus. In that book, when Moses returned from Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments in his hand, he found the Israelites worshiping a golden calf and calling it their savior. God was their savior, but they turned away from God and called this calf their savior. This is what has been and is happening in the United States, today. Donald Trump is our savior rather than God. We do not need God to achieve greatness and have prosperity again. What a bunch of crock. God is listening. I see people idolizing Donald Trump rather than God. We are missing the boat and reaching for judgment.

So, we have these prophets talking about good times coming for America. Has the United States reversed the laws banning prayer in our schools? Can we put the Ten Commandments back on public property? How about Christmas songs in our schools, are they all of a sudden being permitted where they have been banned? Is gay marriage going to remain the law of the land? I have not heard Donald Trump mention reversing any of these established laws and rules. The gains the enemy has made are not likely going to be removed from our society. We cannot legislate out those immoral laws and rules when we as a whole are in the same spiritual state that let these things occur in the first place. The church is still in a pitiful state spiritually in this country. It has never had a backbone to stand up to the political correctness that dominates our society, today. Do not think Donald Trump can change that which is spiritual bankruptcy. Do not bet on it.

This is the message God gives me to pass onto you today. Deuteronomy 13: 1-5 says:

If there arises among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder comes to pass which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them;’ you shall not hearken to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proves you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

You shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cleave to him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he has spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which the Lord your God commanded you to walk in. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.

These prophets have told us Donald Trump would be elected, and it came to pass. That means then we can believe them, right? What did this passage of scripture say to us? It says God is testing you to SEE if you love him and will hearken to his voice. However, I see a church which has turned away from God and only goes through ceremonies and rituals while their true heart remains far from God. God said in the book of Isaiah:

 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to me? says the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination to me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot, away with it! It is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble to me; I am weary to bear them. And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yeah, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil.  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

 Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you will be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. (Isaiah 1: 11-20)

God sees the churches in the United States going through the motions of worshiping him. However, God looks at the heart. Their hearts are not right with God. The church in this country has not stood up to the evil that has propagated throughout our society. It is more concerned about maintaining its tax-exempt status rather than standing up to what the left has been doing in this country. God sees this. He sees this as making money a god above God.

When meeting with Donald Trump during this election season (i.e. some religious leaders), a topic Trump mentioned to the press afterward was the tax-exempt status of the church. Why was that an issue in the first place? Where were the moral issues that needed to be addressed? The church leaders wanted to know about their tax-exempt status and about not suffering persecution for standing up on issues like being against abortion. That is all well and good to not want to suffer persecution, but Jesus says it is a badge of honor to suffer for his name’s sake. We should rejoice when we suffer persecution. Do not run from persecution, but rather run into it. If you are not being effective, then you will not face persecution.

It is time for this nation to turn back to God, today. Donald Trump is not a savior but rather a test. Will we love the Lord our God and start being obedient to his voice? Will we listen to what he has to say? The church needs to wake up and realize it is the problem in the United States. Judgment is passing onto us because the church has gone to sleep. The Nebuchadnezzar spirit will finish the job it was sent here to do. Judgment will come and this nation’s freedom will become a thing of the past. When judgment begins, millions will die in this nation. Our time is almost up. Repent now, church! Your savior is not a fallible man, it is God through Jesus Christ our Lord. We need to ask him for forgiveness now and depend on him and not on any elected official. A businessman’s credentials is not what we need, it is the ONE who can truly bring salvation to all.

 

 

 

Trump Is a Cyrus?

There are several prophecies out there about Donald Trump being a Cyrus who will restore America back to prosperity. Could this be true? We need to look at the scriptures to see if this proposition from the Bible could be true. A dangerous thing to do is to take something from the scripture without using proper context. That is what people often do who want to justify their own sin.

Let me start by asking: Is America back on a right track with God? Has the church risen up to push back against homosexual marriage? Has the church taken a real stand against abortion? Does the church in the United States stand up against political correctness or has it let political correctness keep it quiet? Has the church ever fought back against the immoralities that have become legal in our society by defying the IRS regulation regarding its tax-exempt status being in question? The answer to all these questions is no.

The people proclaiming Donald Trump is a Cyrus are basing there thinking on the idea that God wants to restore the United States back to its greatness. They do not take into consideration where we are morally and spiritually in this nation at this time. Their main focus is on financial restoration. It is because of money, the church in the United States has never stood up for morality in this country from the pulpit. The church has shied away from any kind of political speech to preserve its tax-exempt status. This has to be called what it is: the church has put its emphasis on money over God and his laws (commands to us).

Who was Cyrus? Cyrus was a Persian Empire king who restored the dispersed Jews back to their homeland in Israel and called for the Temple to be rebuilt. God mentioned him by name in the book of Isaiah nearly 200 years before he made this proclamation for the Temple to be rebuilt. God called him “his servant.” Was he a savior of the Jews who restored them back to prosperity? The answer is mostly, no.

Cyrus prepared the way for the coming of Christ. He restored the Jews back to their homeland and helped in the Temple being rebuilt through his decree. Cyrus was God’s servant in a bigger sense than the way he is being used in our situation in the United States. If Trump is Cyrus, then he is preparing this nation for the return of Jesus Christ. But, wait: is there not supposed to be a falling away first as mentioned in the book of Revelation before Jesus returns? Something does not quite make sense in that regard.

The Jews had their ups and downs spiritually after they were restored to their homeland by Cyrus, but I cannot say there was a real falling away from God for the 500 years that followed before Christ came. The Jews basically became spiritually numb during those 500 years. They were going through the motions of worshiping God without really knowing him. God did not judge them like he did when Nebuchadnezzar was sent to judge them.

However, we know there will be a falling away before Christ returns as we are told in the book of Revelation. If Donald Trump is Cyrus, then either he is the Antichrist or he is in the wrong time period to fulfill his mission from God. There are many deceived Christians out there proclaiming they know Trump is a devil. Trump has fulfilled his purpose from God by exposing where people are spiritually in their relationship with God. All of this corruption, anger and hate brought out by his candidacy for the presidency has brilliantly shown where we are morally and spiritually in this nation at this point in time. Satan cannot be behind both Hillary and Trump. One is God’s agent, and the other is Satan’s agent. Satan is not divided against himself.

The fact is that Cyrus came after the Jews were judged. Nebuchadnezzar was God’s tool to judge the Jews and was the cause of them being dispersed to other nations. When Cyrus restored the Jews back to their homeland, they were a base nation. They never rose again to be a powerful nation, but were rather servants to other conquerors for almost the entire 500 years that followed. So, to say that Donald Trump is Cyrus is to miss the point that judgment came first before Cyrus ever came on the scene. Therefore, Donald Trump is not Cyrus.

People prophesy such things as this, because they do not want to face the consequences of this nation’s and their own sins. God said in my book regarding Obama:

The government of this country is being brought under total subjection to this new dictator. All of this nation’s leaders will do him obeisance. This government will be completely stripped of its constitutional customs. Its laws will be ignored, ripped up, and discounted. This must continue until the time my judgment reaches its full end. Any effort to overthrow the tyranny that is coming will be frustrated and cannot prosper.

This must continue until my judgment reaches its full end. This hints of Obama staying in power until God’s wrath is completely poured out on this nation. It is Obama who has the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar which is a spirit of judgment. Again, Obama does have the personality of Nebuchadnezzar and just as God said in my book seven years ago, “He will ignore, rip up and discount the Constitution of the United States.” We have watched him do just that all these years he has been president. Donald Trump cannot save us from Obama. Cyrus cannot come until judgment is complete. Only repenting and turning back to God can save us. Does that not make sense? Do you not know who is God?

You cannot continue in your sin and think God will pardon and bless you when you refuse to listen to his commands to you. He cannot pardon a country that will not reverse the immorality that reigns supreme in this nation. Do you really think Donald Trump will repeal the law of legal homosexual marriage? (Actually, that law was created by the Supreme Court). What if he did do that? Does that make us righteous before God? No, it cannot do that, because righteousness is based on our personal relationship with God. It is not a physical action but rather spiritual submission to wanting to hear from God and obey his word. We have to go to him rather than trust in a man. A man cannot set your heart right with God. Only you can set your heart right with God by submitting to him.

The time is almost up for this nation. I believe President Obama will find a way to stay in office. Most likely it will be by instituting martial law. I cannot figure out another way he could do it. There are Muslims behind the scene he has been using to stir up these riots and protests. They will need a lot more riots if they can ever hope to institute martial law. I think it is probably a greater task than they can really manufacture. Probably, something like an economic meltdown will be needed or perhaps Obama might try to start a major war.

I do not know what will happen, but somehow I cannot see Donald Trump coming into office in January. No one will be happier than me to be wrong about this, but one thing I do know: God cannot bless a people who put their trust in money and a man over him. The people in this nation need to start fasting and praying now. If we can do that by humbling ourselves before God before catastrophe happens, then God will honor that submission and halt the imminent judgment that now faces us.
