Defeating Hillary

October 15, 2016

You see to what extent the media, Hillary Clinton, and some Republicans will go to elect Hillary. There is no restraint on their part. They will not stop at anything to defeat Donald Trump. There is no lie, no action, or moral code that will stop them from putting Hillary into the White House. They are literally throwing the kitchen sink at Donald Trump. Whatever they can find or make-up they will use.

No election has ever been this vile in my lifetime for sure. No candidate has ever been as corrupt as Hillary Clinton. She has been planning the takeover of the United States since the 1960’s when she befriended Saul Alinsky. She adopted his philosophy which was when you are caught doing wrong, deny, deny, and deny again. She just did it the other day when questioned by  Judicial Watch. She went to her famous defense which she used as First Lady and also in recent months, saying she does not recall certain things. She does, this is just her tactic.

Now, Hillary and the media are parading out these women to accuse Donald Trump of inappropriate behavior with women. They are lies. Hillary knows this will get her into the White House. It already has turned the undecided voters away from Trump. There is no chance he can win now if the polls are accurate, and they usually are just that. People like Rush Limbaugh want to believe the polls are not going to be accurate until the last two weeks, but I know the history of the polls, and it does not look good for Trump.

Having said all this, let me now tell you what you can do. The enemy (Satan) wants to destroy this country. He has successfully removed God from our schools, public arena, and God’s moral code from our natural laws. The only thing that can follow such events is chaos in our society. We are watching chaos increasing in our society monthly these days. Hillary is going to win or Obama will stay on as president somehow if we do not act now to save this nation. God is not going to stop them from achieving their goal if we do not take action to get back right with God. It is do or die time for this nation.

We have to act. We have to pray. We need to fast and pray. We need to ask God to speak to us, forgive us and show us the right path to go. We have to humble ourselves before God. Let me show you what happened in 2 Chronicles:

It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There comes a great multitude against you from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they are in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.

And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court, and said, “Oh LORD God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? and do you not rule over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in your hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand you? Are you not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel, and gave it to the seed of Abraham your friend for ever? And they dwelt therein, and have built you a sanctuary therein for your name, saying, ‘If, when evil comes upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in your presence, (for your name is in this house,) and cry to you in our affliction, then you will hear and help.’ And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir, whom you would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of your possession, which you have given us to inherit. Oh our God, will you not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that comes against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon you.”

And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. Then upon Jahaziel… a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation; and he said, “Hearken all you of Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat; thus says the LORD to you, ‘Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow, go down against them: behold, they will come up by the cliff of Ziz; and you shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. You shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, oh Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.'”

And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshiping the LORD. And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high. 

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, Oh Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall you be established; believe his prophets, so shall you prosper.”

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers to the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, “Praise the LORD; for his mercy endures forever.” And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped. And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day. Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies.

And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets to the house of the LORD. And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel. So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about. (2 Chronicles 20: 1-31)

King Jehoshaphat said to God, “Will you not judge them.” We should be praying to God, “Will you not judge the media and Hillary? Will you not lay bare the lies that they are telling today and expose the plot her campaign created to parade out these women with these false accusations?” Yes, the accusations are false. This tactic is used every four years by the Democrats on every Republican nominee for president. It has just never been to this extreme in the past. The reason it has never been to this extreme is because now the nation’s survival is at stake. Satan must finish the job to destroy this nation. Now is the time for it to fall.

The survival of this nation is in our hands. We have to humble ourselves before God and pray. We need to be fasting and praying just as they did in Jehoshaphat’s day. God fought for Judah when they humbled themselves before him by fasting and praying. Now, it is our turn. We must do the same. Our prayers can be heard. But they will not be heard by God from an unrepentant church. The church today is putting its hopes in a man to save this country. It will never happen as long as the church does not instead turn to God.

God is our salvation. God is the United States’ salvation. It is because his church has let the immoral people of our nation run it through and through that we are now facing this dire situation. God’s people in this nation became fat and lazy. God’s people simply have not wanted to get out of their comfort zone to do what is necessary to keep God in our society while the godless worked tirelessly to remove him from our society. Guess who won the battle.

If we do not act today, then Donald Trump will fail to be elected. He can only do so much himself, but he cannot withstand all the hell that is being thrown at him today. It is our responsibility before God to act. We cannot wait to see what will happen. I am telling you our fate is already decided if you do not take my advice. Act today, before it becomes too late. After the election it is too late.

Which Prophet Should You Believe?

December 26, 2015

There are so many Internet prophets out there telling us the bad things that will happen to this nation in a short time from now. Are they all hearing from God, or are they hearing from themselves or somebody else? That is a very important question. I will give some guidelines to help you try and judge who you should believe and who you should be cautious about in believing what they say.

I have seen one prophet in particular among others who talks about a tsunami striking the East Coast of the U.S., and it will result in all land east of the Appalachians being under water. That truly has to be some kind of wave that could achieve such a feat. The Appalachians are not that close to the shoreline, so we are talking about scores of miles for the water to reach the Appalachians. I do not know the number of miles it is from the shoreline to the Appalachians at its nearest point, but it should certainly be more than 20 miles. So, how far could a tsunami travel inland?

If we had a wave 300 feet high, one person says that will cover all land that is not 300 feet above sea level. That simply is not the case. Generally, a tsunami will not go farther than 5 miles inland, but with a giant wave like that, the water displacement maybe could reach a maximum of 20 miles. So, in other words, I do not believe this prophecy. God is capable of doing anything he wants, but he will not generally interfere with the laws of physics he created. There have been exceptions, but I do not believe God will do that in this case. He does not need to do it.

So, is what the prophet saying physically feasible is one question you should ask? Or you could ask, if it is not physically feasible, why would God have to bend the laws of physics in the particular case of concern? This all makes us wonder, why would a person give a false prophecy in the first place?

It would help if we could sense the spirit behind the prophecy. I have to say that in the vast majority of cases, the spirit behind these false prophecies is evading me. I am not yet able to see the spirit behind these prophecies. God has promised he will open my eyes more in this area in the coming days, but as of today, I still cannot see the spirit behind these types of prophecies in an overwhelming number of cases. If I could, I could help you more in this area.

Also, when you listen to such prophecies on a video like you find at You Tube, notice how they receive such prophecies and how many they receive. If they are dreams, be very wary. I know of one person who has had several prophetic dreams and have listened to what they said. This woman is repeating the same things that are written in my book which tells me she has really been hearing from God. How can I know she is right just because it agrees with me? I know, because there is a message she gives that goes along with these dreams that is the same as mine. She calls on the people and especially the church in this nation to repent. So, look for a message to go along with the dream or vision that will bring you back to or closer to God. If there is no message to go along with the dream that tries to save us from destruction or error, then I would say ignore the dream, vision or prophecy.

In addition, God is not going to constantly give someone many diverse dreams or visions in such a way that they become the one prophet everyone should depend on for a word from God. That is, to become the nation’s prophet in the eyes of most people. That would lead the prophet to becoming an easy target for Satan to tempt into becoming high minded and proud. Watch out for such prophets that seem to get such a plentiful amount of dreams and visions. When this happens, it makes them seem so much closer to God than anyone else. This opens the door for them to become proud, and then they will fall, because pride comes before a fall. I have noticed such prophets get a lot of dreams, and when listening to their dreams or visions they get from God, I keep hearing the word, “I.” When a person uses the word “I” frequently, then watch out! They are centered on themselves in many cases, and thus the prophetic words they are getting are not coming from God.

So, let us now try and see if we can discern what is causing all these prophecies of which many cannot be true. In Isaiah 3:1-5 it says:

“For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, does take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water. The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, the captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

 “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.  And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable.”

The kingdom of Judah was going to face judgment in this passage. This could be translated to not just the nation of Judah which one could say is the United States, but also centers more on the children of God, i.e. the Christians in the United States. It is the children of God who will listen to God’s prophets while the evil will not generally do this. So, God says he will take away all these lists of things from the nation including the prophets. That also means he is taking it away from his church.

What are we watching occurring today in the United States? We have turned away from God and are getting mixed messages from prophets to us on the Internet. These prophecies constantly are conflicting with each other in a huge number of occasions. So, not everyone is giving a true prophecy from God.

Reading on in the passage, we are told that God would cause children to become the princes or rulers over the nation. We are seeing that today. The leaders of our country are children in spirit and do not know what they are doing. They are acting proud against the ancient and base against the honorable. That means these children who are our leaders are ignoring the principles our forefathers gave us and are calling what has always been good in the past evil, today. Those who stand for righteousness in this nation are now belittled by our politicians, the press, and the leaders of our universities as well as the students in these universities. What was once was white is now called black in this country. Thus at every turn, God has caused our rulers, judges, prophets, et al. to be withheld from us. There are few wise people among them that we can turn to for proper decisions and directions.

There are so many prophecies on the Internet giving varied warnings about what is about to happen in this country. God does give us warnings before he judges a nation through his prophets. He does require a person to speak it into existence since he placed man in charge of the Earth at the very beginning. If a prophecy is not given by a man beforehand, then God will not do it. But, God has given us warnings through various prophets about bad events coming for the United States. The word from God has been spoken, and so they will come to pass.

However, with these warnings comes an alternative for salvation. If God’s people would humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways and repent, then God would reverse these prophecies of judgment coming to the United States. That is the message I have been giving you. It is time to listen to that message and remember no bad thing has to happen if we would just repent, turn from our sin and set things back right in this country. This is something we have to do by force since it is impossible our leaders will ever repent and turn back the clock. It is God’s church that has to act. That is what he requires us to do to save the United States.

 

 

 

The Antichrist Revealed?

December 15, 2015

There are many dreams one can find on the Internet about Obama being revealed to these people as being the Antichrist. I have said he is an antichrist, but he is not the  Antichrist. On one site on the Internet, I came across a person who gives dream interpretations, and he told me that God had confirmed to him 18 different times that Obama was the Antichrist. Confirmations are important, and God does confirm his word to people, but Satan confirms words, too.

When it comes to end time events, watch out for Satan’s hand in interpreting who is the Antichrist and what will happen in the coming days. One needs to be very paranoid about jumping to any conclusions. I am very paranoid about doing such things. There are spirits that feed off of people with these kinds of beliefs.

One example I will give is what happened with a person in the church I was attending. This person was an officer in the church and the pastor’s most reliable aide. I began talking to him and immediately saw this demonic spirit that was feeding off of him. He had got caught up in this freemasonry end time events theory. I could see this spirit and knew that it would cause this reliable person of the pastor to react hostilely to anyone who did not accept his version of end time events. It did not take but two weeks for him to leave the church because the pastor would not accept his version about end time events regarding the Freemasons. I would see this spirit again a few weeks later and gave a warning to the pastor’s wife that this spirit was feeding off of another person, and she sharply rebuked me for saying it. The next day she had to ban this person from her wall on Facebook.

This spirit behind the belief that Obama is the Antichrist is a different spirit. There is no hostility it causes for those who have this belief. It has been sent by Satan to deceive and just get people to look in the wrong direction for the real Antichrist. Satan loves playing this game with God’s people. One must avoid jumping to conclusions until God reveals the Antichrist to everyone who can hear in his church. There will always  be those in his church who are spiritually deaf.

I will take two different approaches for telling you why I do not believe Barack Obama is the Antichrist. The first involves which spirit he actually has. The spirit that is inside of Obama is the Nebuchadnezzar spirit. Maybe Hitler and Napoleon had this same spirit; I am not sure since I was not around to know them, but those two were also antichrists. I do not believe the spirit inside the Antichrist will be this Nebuchadnezzar spirit. I believe the Antichrist will have Satan dominating him rather than a subordinate spirit to Satan. After all, Satan with the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be trying to emulate the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Satan will be there to promote himself when the Antichrist comes on the scene.

The second approach I am taking regards the unveiling or revealing of the Antichrist to the world. In 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4 it says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed (apokalupto), the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God showing himself that he is God.” 

I just noticed that the Antichrist is supposed to sit in the temple of God. There is no temple at this time and there could not be one for many years to come. Some will argue that this does not mean the temple in Jerusalem, but I disagree. That is not where I was going, however and so now I will go back to the point I was trying to make.

I will concentrate on the Hebrew word, galah and the Greek word, apokalupto. In the first word galah, we have a word which means to uncover and is used in scripture as the word revealed. Although, it can have a universal meaning, it also is used in an individual context such as in Daniel 10: 1 which says, “In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed (galah) to Daniel…” Clearly we are talking about a single individual having something revealed to them rather than everyone which would then give us a universal context. This is not the only case where this word does not have a universal context.

Now, let us concentrate on the word apokalupto. This word means to reveal and is used 26 times in the New Testament. In every single case it has a universal context, meaning that whatever is revealed is revealed to everyone who is not deaf to spiritual things at a minimum. This is the word used to describe the unveiling of the Antichrist to the world. The church as a whole will know him as the Antichrist when he is revealed. Obama has not been revealed to me nor to the church at large as the Antichrist, so any confirmations this guy has received about him being the Antichrist  simply did not come from God. God is not going to notify a few and then reveal to everyone later: God is going to unveil him to everyone at the same time. This is a deception coming from Satan.

One must be spiritually aware of Satan’s devices. That is where many of these Internet prophets fail. They do not have a significant ability to discern spirits. Discerning of spirits is a gift God has given me, and he said he is going to expand my ability in this area when he moves me into a ministry he is giving me in another country. I believe that door will be opening very soon based upon the last prophecy he gave me. Anyway, you will come across many things in the Internet about end time events. It behooves you to be very vigilant in waiting on a universal unveiling of end time events from God rather than taking some groups of individual’s interpretations regardless of how many confirmations from God they say they have received.

 

 

 

Message to Kim Clement Followers

August 28, 2015

I have received an email from Kim Clement who says he is going to talk about the predicted financial collapse. He says his followers are writing him worrying about what others are saying is coming to the United States regarding a financial collapse. I am certainly one of those who have been saying such a collapse is coming. I am going to go out on a limb here and guess what he is going to say to his followers. The question is in the end: which of us are you going to believe?

 
When I say I am going out on a limb in guessing what he is going to say, I do not believe I am going too far out on the limb. I know what he has said in the past, and I know that he has said he purposely will not prophesy judgment coming on America. The problem with that kind of mentality is obviously: what if God did tell him such judgment is coming to America? With this conviction on his part, he says he will disobey God rather than reveal this to his followers. God says, “To obey is better than sacrifice.” (1 Samuel 15:22)

 
For those of you, who want to believe all that Kim Clement has said in the past, watch out for making him an idol in your life. He can miss God just as well as any other prophet. He did say in the 2008 presidential race that McCain would win. He was wrong. In January of 2007, I remember him having a prophecy out that was clearly describing Rudy Giuliani as the next president. He later changed to McCain when he became the Republican nominee for president. He misses prophecies all the time; it is time to listen to God yourself and not depend on him.

 
What does your heart tell you about what is coming to the United States? If you are a born again Christian, you have the Holy Spirit residing in you. What is he telling you about the coming days? What I can tell you is that God cannot bless that which is cursed. God cannot bless this country when it is murdering babies at an astonishing rate. God cannot bless that which allows homosexuals to marry. God cannot bless a country that will not let him be in public life. The Soviet Union banned God from their government, and we are doing the same. You can see how we march toward being just like that system with God being an enemy to the state. How can God bless this nation when we and especially our Supreme Court thumbs its nose at him? The answer is obviously; he cannot.

 
I have heard Kim Clement say he does not believe judgment will come on America because of all the missionary work that has come from this nation to the rest of the world. He basically thinks this outweighs all the sins going on in this country, today. He apparently believes God depends on the United States to spread the Gospel to the world. He should think again. In Luke 19, we have the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem. As he is entering, the people were greeting him spreading their clothes out before him and shouting praises to God. They were rejoicing as Jesus entered Jerusalem. The Pharisees who were religious leaders told Jesus to rebuke those who were rejoicing and praising God. Jesus said in verse 40, “I tell you that if these (people) should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” Jesus was serious. In other words, God does not need the United States to spread the Gospel. He could use the stones on the ground if necessary.

 
The United States is in very bad financial condition. Just listen to those who are financial experts. They have been saying since this last large dip in the stock market how we are not on a strong financial footing. One expert who knows very well what is holding the market up today is saying the stock market will eventually crash and go down to 5800 points in the Dow Jones Average. Gold will then soar but then come back down to below $800 an ounce. We cannot keep borrowing money and think there will not be a day of reckoning. There are spiritual laws which are the driving force and substance of our natural laws which must be obeyed. There is the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. What you sow, you will reap. If you sow debt, you will reap the consequences of keeping that debt. The United States continually increases its debt every year and will never cease to increase that debt. Our politicians are gambling on there being no day of reckoning. They are having a pipe dream.

 
The world is in a worldwide rebellion against God. Christians are being murdered in the Middle East by ISIS. Who is really trying to stop them? The United States is certainly not giving much effort. This rebellion against God means judgment must come. It is not only coming to the United States, but the United States is going to be hit the worst. We were once his witness to the world. Today, we are telling the world that God is unimportant and in fact is the cause of all the evil in the world. All the righteous laws of God are called an abomination by the dominant culture controlling the United States. People who stand up and try to defend God’s moral laws are quickly attacked, silenced and called evil by the media and those most prominent in leadership positions. Evil people control our culture to spread their polluted agenda on all of us living in this country. We are the true minority in the United States, today. Our opinions are now obsolete.

 
Follow the following link to hear what is coming to this nation.

 
http://pro.bonnerandpartners.com/BBLFALLINGDOWN39/PBBLR719?h=true

 
The person speaking in the video has predicted many of the events that have occurred the last few decades. This person predicted the financial crash of 2008. He says this next crash is going to be much worse. Why would it be much worse? The truth is we are not on the same financial footing we were before the crash of 2008. Our debt has increased, and all the financial markers declare very clearly that another crash could be catastrophic for us. We have fewer people working in full time jobs, more debt, the smallest worker participation rate since Jimmy Carter was president, and social programs that are on the brink of bankruptcy. Now you can add Obama care coming into full force to put more financial strain on the system. All of this spells disaster on the horizon.

 
The next crash will destroy our credit system. Our country is completely dependent on the credit system. Do you pay cash for everything? Do you have enough cash in your residence to pay all your bills? What would happen if the credit system ceased to exist tomorrow? The farmer has to borrow money to produce the food we eat. Those machines they use to till the ground and collect their large harvests cost scores of thousands of dollars. They have to get loans to buy that equipment. The companies that buy the food farmers produce buy it on credit. They have to package the food that is sent to those who sell the food to the public like grocery stores. The trucker has to buy a truck which costs over $100,000 to ship the food. He has to have a loan to buy that truck. He can only function by using our credit system. The grocery stores have to buy the food on credit to give to the public. You see that everything in our country operates on credit. When our credit system breaks down, then nearly all activity will cease. The banks will close, and you will not be able to get access to your money. What will you do then? People will not accept credit cards, because they are now useless. They will demand cash only. What is coming goes along perfectly with Rebecca Sterling’s vision. People will not have the money to buy food and riots will break out. Grocery stores will also run out of food since no food can be trucked. Gasoline will be scarce. This is what awaits us after the next crash. Is this the world you want for yourself and your children?

 
Do not believe good times are coming for America. Kim Clement is wrong in this case. You have to listen to God for yourself. What is he telling you? You do not have to believe me. It is better if you hear from God yourself. I am simply a voice like that of the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah who is warning you of where we are headed if God’s church does not repent and take back this nation before it is too late. We are the only ones with the power God has given us to save this country. We have to act. We have to rebel, protest and demand these unrighteous laws be removed from the books. We have to take back our culture, today or tomorrow will come. Then, all the bad just mentioned in the previous paragraph will come to pass. Our time is almost up to act.

ISIS in Texas

May 6, 2015

In recent days an event was held in Texas that was considered to be a blasphemous act against Muslims. A contest was held for participants to draw pictures of Muhammad.  This is a big no-no in the Muslim world. Now there is a big controversy sprung up about whether such an expression of free speech should be allowed. There are many who are worried about Muslim extremists retaliating because of such events like this one. One thing I can say is that we should never allow Muslims determine what we can or cannot say. Do not let these fanatic murderers intimidate us into submission. We cannot call ourselves a free people when we do not allow those we disagree with to not have a right to speak. The defense of the First Amendment of the Constitution must take precedence.

Now, I have heard from a Christian who is angry at Pamela Gellar for stirring up the Muslim world. Maybe her tactics are not the correct ones to take when trying to make a point about free speech as she says it is, but we should defend her right to speak out even if we do not agree with the message or her tactics. It is not something about which we should get worried. God gave me a message to respond to this fear of Muslim and ISIS retaliation. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but he does give us power if we would only believe in it and use it. Let me do a short set up before I deliver the message.

In 2 Kings 18-19, we have the story of the Assyrians coming to Jerusalem to conquer it and remove the Jews from their land. Their spokesman, Rabshakeh, said to Hezekiah, the king of Judah and to all those who could hear him speak, “Speak now to Hezekiah, thus says the great king, the king of Assyria…In whom do you trust so that you rebel against me? Now, behold, you trust upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will pass through his hand and pierce it: this is how Pharaoh is, the king of Egypt to all that trust in him. But if you say to me, ‘We trust in the Lord our God.’ Is it not his high places and altars Hezekiah has taken away and has said to Judah and Jerusalem, ‘You shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?’…Let not Hezekiah deceive you, because he shall not be able to deliver you out of his (the king of Assyria’s) hand. Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the Lord saying, ‘The Lord will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.’ Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus says the king of Assyria, ‘Make an agreement with me…and come out to me, and eat every man on his own vine, and everyone of his fig tree…until I come and take you away to a land like your own land…that you may live and not die…Have any of the gods of the other nations delivered their lands out of the hand of the king of Assyria?…Can you name any of the gods of any country that has successfully delivered their country out of my hand to make you think that the Lord will deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?”

What ISIS and other Muslim terrorists are saying today mirrors what Rabshakeh said to Hezekiah back then. God’s response to the Assyrians and to ISIS today is the same. God says,

Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? Against whom have you exalted your voice and lifted up your eyes on high? You have done this against the Holy One of Israel. By your messengers you have reproached the Lord and have said,‘With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees, and the choice fir trees, and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders and into the forest of his Carmel. I have dug and drunk strange waters, and with the soles of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.’ Have you not heard long ago how I have done it and of ancient times that I have formed it? Now, I have brought it to pass to make you my instrument to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps. There inhabitants were of small power: they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field and as the green herb, as the grass on the house tops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up. But I know your abode and your going out and your coming in, and your rage against me. Because of your rage against me and your tumult has come up into my ears; I will put my hook into your nose and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way which you came.”  (2 Kings 19: 22-28)

These terrorists say they are going to conquer the world for Islam. God says it is not going to happen. They are not going to be able to come here and spread their religion. In that passage where God speaks and repeats what the Assyrians were saying: if you are sensitive to God’s spirit at all; you can hear what was said then is the same thing ISIS and other terrorists are saying, today. They have a rage against God. That is what is really going on with these people.

Do not fear to speak your mind on a subject such as this. They have won half the battle when we censure ourselves in fear of them retaliating against us. God is our protection if we will only put him in charge of our lives. Who can defeat us if God is for us? The press and the left is fearful for sure. However, it serves their purpose to attack free speech when such a threat exists; so they want to urge you to be quiet. Their agenda is more important to them, and that is to silence all Christian voices in this country, and I am not referring to what Pamela Gellar has been saying as being a Christian voice. Let us speak out while we still can, because the day is coming when we will never be allowed to speak out against liberal theology.

 

 

What Made America Great!

March 28, 2014

What is it that made America great? What made it the one country people all over the world wanted to go to in order to start a new life? If you listen to the progressives of today, they will say it was our secular dictated form of government. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let us explore the history of the United States and from where its greatness comes.

It is a noted fact that is not taught in most schools today, that people from Europe immigrated here to practice their religion free from the restrictions of the Old World. After all, there was the Inquisition and other forms of religious correction going on in Europe which caused the death of thousands and thousands of people. People like the Pilgrims and Puritans wanted somewhere else to go that would free them from the religious persecution they were leaving behind. America, the New World, was very inviting.

From these roots a new nation began to form. You can see it in the Declaration of Independence where it makes references to God (and definitely not a god) and says:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

You can see it on the building housing the Supreme Court where the Ten Commandments are there for everyone to see. You can see it in Congress everyday where each session is led off by a prayer, and you can see it in the First Amendment of the Constitution that guarantees religious freedom, although progressives have twisted it to be interpreted today as freedom from religion. Anyone who studies our history before and just after this nation was born cannot escape the religious roots from which our society came. So what is it that made us great?

Let us read Deuteronomy 28: 1-13 to see if we can answer the question from where our greatness came. “And it shall come to pass if you should hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command you this day, that the Lord your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings shall come on you and overtake you, if you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your kine, and the flocks of your sheep. Blessed shall be your basket and your store. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you set your hand to, and he shall bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

“The Lord shall establish you a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in his ways. And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you. And the Lord shall make you plenteous in goods, in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. The Lord shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in his season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many nations, and you shall not borrow. And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if that you hearken to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them.”

God made us great, because we began this nation as a people searching for God and putting our trust in him. We received his blessings because he was the true head of our society. Our Founding Fathers knew this and put the frameworks of our religious freedom into our Constitution and every layer of our society. Our freedoms sprang from God. Look at other societies and what freedoms they had without God. Did it exist in that ideal society of equality for all in the Soviet Union? Does it exist in those other Marxist utopias of North Korea and China? Are people fleeing to or from Cuba? Are the people happy in Venezuela and Iran? Wherever God is left out of a society, oppression reigns and any freedoms are lost. That is what we are seeing in the United States, today.

We have passed the tipping point. We are no longer under God’s blessing. We no longer are the lender: we are the borrower. We will soon not be the head. We have abandoned God and our greatness is vanishing right before our eyes. Oppression from our government grows every day and will continue to grow as long as sins like homosexuality make more inroads into our society every day. We are going in the opposite direction from which God commands us to go.

If we want to save this nation, we have to repent. There is no other way. Political changes will not work. God told the Jews after the fall of Jerusalem to the Chaldeans to not go back into Egypt. They did not listen. They thought their way of changing things was better than what God was telling them, but they were wrong. What they were trying to run from followed them into Egypt. We are trying to do things our way by hoping political change will do it, but it is a false hope. God says, “Repent! There is no other way but my way.”

The United States: Reaping What it has Sown

May 10, 2013

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6: 7) God cannot lie. He says whatever you do; an equivalent act will come your way. The word mock in this verse means “to sneer at.” It basically means people do not believe what God says and sneers at it. But God stresses that whatever you sow in your life will bring the good or bad you have done back your way. The United States these last several decades has sowed seeds of evil, and this evil is coming back upon us, today. We are reaping today what we have sown.

There are two examples I want to give you of the law of sowing and reaping from the Bible. The first is what happened in King David’s life. God called David a man after his own heart. God made him the king and the direct ancestor of Jesus. David though had some bad qualities. He murdered a man after he impregnated the man’s wife. He sowed seeds of adultery and murder and the consequences were grave. God forgave David of his sin, but the law of sowing and reaping took hold and brought disaster upon his personal life and the kingdom.

What happened? First, the baby from this adulterous affair died. Then, in the coming years, David’s own son deposed him as king for a period of time and slept with all the concubines he left behind in Jerusalem. His son then was killed and David returned to Jerusalem as king. All this pain and agony came from the original act of sleeping with another man’s wife and then killing him secretly. He reaped what he had sowed. God forgiving him did not stop this law from bringing to pass all the consequences of David’s act.

The second example is in the book of Judges. The son of Gideon, Abimelech, killed all his brothers which numbered 70 except one who escaped. The men of Shechem aided him in this treachery and made him king at this point. The one who escaped, Jotham, then went to the top of the hill and proclaimed a prophetic parable saying basically, Abimelech and the men of Shechem would reap what they sowed.

Not many years passed before men rose up against Abimelech who were dissatisfied with his rule. They fortified the city against Abimelech and he came to fight against them. He slew all those in the city and sowed the land with salt. He then went and fought against another city where a woman from a tower threw a rock on his head and mortally wounded him. Abimelech then had his armor bearer kill him so it could not be said a woman killed him. Abimelech and the men of Shechem reaped what they had sowed.

The United States has been throwing God out of the public arena. It has legalized the murder of its unborn children. It continues down the path of allowing more and more vile things as acceptable. It is sowing seeds of destruction. We cannot murder millions of babies and think we will not reap the consequences. The law of sowing and reaping cannot be broken. If millions of babies have been murdered for pleasure seeking and convenience, the law of sowing and reaping means millions of us are going to die somewhere down the road. We are at the door of seeing this come to pass before our eyes.

There are prophets out there like Kim Clement who believe we will not reap the consequences of our actions; but he is deceived. God can forgive us and turn things around, but the spilling of blood requires more blood to be spilt. The blood of those murdered unborn babies cries out from the earth to be avenged. God is the avenger of all such acts. That is why there is a law of sowing and reaping. This law brings justice to those who have been wronged. No one can escape this law. No nation can escape this law. We have begun to reap all the actions we have committed starting many decades ago. We can only hope that this nation will repent and give us an avenue of avoiding total destruction. God is a shield to those in a time of disaster when they turn to him for protection. He can soften the consequences of the actions we have sown all these decades. However, we can never totally escape the seeds of destruction we have sown. There will always be some consequences.

It is time to start sowing seeds of edification for this nation. We have to stand up and put God back into his place. Without these seeds, there can be no salvation for this country. If one does not sow the seed, then there is no seed to grow to produce the crop that seed produces. If we want good to happen to this nation, then we have to use force against all the power of the enemy and sow good seeds back into our society. The enemy will try to stop us from sowing these seeds, so we have to use force to sow these seeds that build up our nation rather than tear it down.

This means we have to rise up against what is going on in this country now, and demand the principles of God be followed.  We have to rule instead of a corrupt government or a set of people making up the Supreme Court who are so detached from reality, they do not realize what they are doing to all the people in this country. These people in the government do not have to live under the very rules they establish. They have their own health system, and yet want to put a system upon us under which they would never live. Rise up today, Church! We do not have time for you to dawdle.
