11-11-2014                              America’s Rebellion

It gets lonely telling people about America’s rebellion because I often get blank stares and I am seldom asked about what I am talking about. I just went on the web to find other sites mentioning America’s rebellion and found about a half dozen sites. I will be checking these sites and see if I can correspond with those who may not know American’s rebellion is a proven fact.

America needs to know that our rebellion can be shown in crime and other data. More Americans may then decide our rebellion is not just some ones opinion and that may help America get to the cure for rebellion, which is repentance and returning to the Lord (see Psalm 107:17 and 11-13). Until that happens, America and future generations will continue to suffer in our slide into destruction because Christ’s Church is mostly inactive on this effort. The Church is mostly clinging to political correctness and does not want to offend anyone for their political views, no matter how wrong they may be for the rest of Americans and the unborn and the Church itself.

For years I thought we were a fallen nation and I wondered what the Lord’s position was on this. I knew that the Lord fulfills his word: Jeremiah 1:12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it. Genesis 15:16 gives an awesome example of this when the Lord is telling Moses that you can have the land of all these fallen nations; but, not the Amorites land; because: the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete, but then the Lord goes on to say it would be complete in the fourth generation of the nation of Israel and Israel could then have the Amorite land. Psalm 2 is also an awesome example of what happens to nations who rebel; the Lord laughs at them (also see Psalm 9). Is the Lord laughing at America and now working against us?

As I pondered the Lord watching over His Word it came to me that there should be data showing whether or not America had rebelled. I praised the Lord for days as I found the data. I found more and more data proving the Word and showing something terrible had happened to America, just as the Bible promises for rebellion. Ezekiel 5:5-8 describes a rebellion and how the Lord will turn against the rebellious nation:

5 “Thus says the Lord God, ‘This is Jerusalem; I have set her at the center of the nations, with lands around her. 6 But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes more than the lands which surround her; for they have rejected My ordinances and have not walked in My statutes.’ 7 Therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Because you have more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,’ 8 therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations.

I had already wondered what the consequences of America turning against the Lord were when America thumbed our nose at the Lord and took prayer and then the Bible out of public school in 1962 and 1963 and now I knew and saw how the Lord was proving His Word. America’s founders had put into law the requirement to teach Christianity in public schools and when America rebelled against this, it was rebellion against the Lord. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11 that everything that happened to Israel was to be an example to us in the later days and here was the proof! I love how this proves Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom and no understanding and no counsel against the Lord.

What follows is only some of the proof and adding it to this post, makes this post too long, let alone share other data. I found statistics on things like teenage pregnancy, which was also trending down, and divorce rates, stat scores, and venereal decease all trending in the wrong direction. This shows that all Americans suffered severely because of America’s rebellion. Note how things took a turn for the worse in 1962 when America removed prayer and in 1963, the Bible from public schools!

11-8-14                                         America’s Rebellion

Please note how everything starts trending upward in 1963 after being relatively stable or trending downward before America’s rebellion. Most crimes almost doubled or did double in the 8 years before the 60’s decade ended. America also experienced the free sex and the drug culture movements in those 8 years!

1992 255,029,699 757.7 9.3 42.8 263.7 441.9

 

I cut this chart off after 1992 because crimes rates started trending down as a result of mandatory minimum sentences being enacted in 1986 and that took a lot of criminals off the streets.

My Analysis:

When something like this increase in crime takes place, we should look for a cause. As a Christian, I see it as a rebellion against the Lord’s leadership in governance. Since America’s founding, Christianity played a huge part in America’s governance. America’s governance rebelled in 1962 when the Supreme Court removed prayer from public schools. America had required the teaching of Christianity in public schools. When our state of Ohio applied for state hood, they had to prove they were adhering to the Northwest Ordinance requirement that they teach Christianity in public schools. Ohio’s constitution verifies Ohio was meeting this requirement. As a result of adherence to the Lord’s guidance for nations, America became the most powerful nation on earth; but, we are now trending downward in power and leadership in the world.

In 1963, America further rebelled by removing the Bible from public schools.

  1. The violent crime rate per 100,000 people increased from 162.3 in 1962 to 757.7 in 1992; a whopping 366.8 %.
  2. The murder rate increased from 5.1 per 100,000 people to 9.3 in 1992, an 82.4% increase.
  3. Forcible rape increased from 9.6 per 100,000 people to 42.8 in 1992, a tragic circumstance for our women and a 345.8% increase in rape.
  4. The robbery rate increased from 60.1 per 100,000 to 263.7, a 337.8% increase.
  5. The aggravated assault rate increased from 86.1 per 100,000 to 441.9, a 413.2% increase.

Why not do your own search. For instance if you search for 1960 -1990 FBI crime charts beginning in 1960, a lot of images of charts will show up. Scan through them and you will see most have a big increase beginning in 1960.

11-5-14 What Ever Happened to the Dinosaur

11-5-14                                 What Ever Happened to the Dinosaurs?

Scripture is NIV.

I don’t think anyone knows for sure exactly what happened to the dinosaurs. If we ponder what is in the Bible maybe it will not be that big a mystery. We can know what God did to the dinosaur from the Bible; the only completely trustful source man has. Psalm 74:14-15 tells us: 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan; You gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.15 You broke open springs and torrents; You dried up ever-flowing streams. Note how mention of the flood follows the mention of God crushing the heads of Leviathan (Dinosaurs) in this Psalm 74 scripture which appears to be a chronological list of what God has done of old in verses 12-15.

We know we can trust scripture, like the children’s song states, This I know because the Bible tells me so. I think this destruction of the dinosaur happened before the flood because of God’s discussion of the dinosaurs (as the behemoth and leviathan) with Job (Job 40:15 thru Job 41:34). That Job is the oldest book in the Bible and that Job knew the dinosaur is another indication that God and Job’s discussion took place before the flood.

Here are the reasons why I think the dinosaurs were not on the ark and were eradicated before the flood:

  1. Job 40:19 tells us: It ranks first among the works of God, yet its Maker can approach it with his sword. This infers only God could approach it and control it and man could not which we will see in the scripture below. God says much to Job about how undefeatable the dinosaur was. Given how God needed a sword to approach this dinosaur, wasn’t this animal too violent for the ark?
  2. It could have set the ark on fire: Job 41:18-21

18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light; its eyes are like the rays of dawn. 19 Flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. 20 Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds. 21 Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth.

  1. The biggest dinosaur can weigh up to 100 tons and be up 100 feet long. The current news tells us they have now found one 130 feet long in Argentina. The current news also announces another really heavy one found in Africa that walked on two feet. It is hard to picture pairs of dinosaurs this long and this heavy on Noah’s ark which was less than 500 feet long. On Guam, I drove a truck weighing 100 tons or more and that feels like a tremendous amount of dead weight. Compare that to a shifting live animal weight. Once again, I know God can do anything and that His hand was on the ark; but, when God gave Noah the instructions for the ark it seems small for all the other animals let alone include the dinosaurs. Yes, I understand not every dinosaur type had to be on the ark given it was for animals after their kind but there are numerous kinds of big heavy dinosaurs.
  2. When God crushed the heads of the dinosaurs, they were given as food to the creatures in the wilderness. It doesn’t seem plausible that God would bring them through the flood only to destroy them afterward. God did this because all flesh on earth had become corrupt: Genesis 6:11-12 11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
  3. Man could neither control nor kill the dinosaur. As you read this scripture try to visualize man trying to kill this creature with rocks, clubs, spears and swords. Job 41:12-33

12 “I will not fail to speak of Leviathan’s limbs, its strength and its graceful form. 13 Who can strip off its outer coat? Who can penetrate its double coat of armor? 14 Who dares open the doors of its mouth, ringed about with fearsome teeth? 15 Its back had rows of shields tightly sealed together; 16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. 18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light; its eyes are like the rays of dawn. 19 Flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. 20 Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds. 21 Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth. 22 Strength resides in its neck; dismay goes before it. 23 The folds of its flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. 24 Its chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. 25 When it rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before its thrashing. 26 The sword that reaches it has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. 27 Iron it treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. 28 Arrows do not make it flee; slingstones are like chaff to it. 29 A club seems to it but a piece of straw; it laughs at the rattling of the lance. 30 Its undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. 31 It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 It leaves a glistening wake behind it; one would think the deep had white hair. 33 Nothing on earth is its equal— a creature without fear. 34 It looks down on all that are haughty; it is king over all that are proud.”

Genesis 9:1-3 and 26 tell us that after the flood, God gave man dominion over the earth.

Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. 3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

Back at creation, when God created man, they were to have dominion over the earth. Before the flood, when the earth had become wicked, man could neither control nor kill the most fearsome dinosaur but afterward man could kill all animal life: Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” After the flood, man had dominion over all the animals on earth because the dinosaur was gone.

The other Leviathans following Job in the Bible in Psalms 104:23 it is a whale and in Isaiah 27:1 a and b, the Leviathan described as the twisted serpent appears to be Satan while the second leviathan is a whale. I know God can do anything; but, It is also hard for me to imagine two of each kind of dinosaur on Noah’s 450 foot long ark.

If you disagree or have other ideas, I would like to hear them. If I am wrong, and the dinosaurs were on the ark, that would make the story of the ark even more awesome.

10-28-14 America’s Problem with Righteousness

10-28-14                               America’s Problem with Righteousness

America was founded by righteous people. A large majority of Americans are now very unhappy with the way things are in America. How can that be, because America is still chuck full of righteousness? Let’s see if we can see what happened.

America was founded by Jesus Christ, The Great Governor of the Universe! Here are a few examples of why I declare that to be true.

  1. Colossians 1:15-17: 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
  2. When Wycliffe finished translating the Bible into English in the late 1300’s, he wrote in the flyleaf of that Bible that it would make possible government by people for people. He understood that his translation would set English speaking people free.
  3. Columbus said he was led by the Holy Spirit to find a people not yet evangelized and I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence

www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/c/christophe261142.html#LDq6SmROZvS5VQTS.99

  1. The Pilgrims Mayflower Compact starts with, In the name of God, Amen, and then states, Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith.
  2. In 1741 a gathering of those now in New England was held to form a confederation and they stated: Whereas we all came into these parts of America with one and the same end and aim, namely, to advance the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the liberties of the Gospel in purity with peace.
  3. George Washington would spend an hour in the morning and an hour at night before a chair with the Bible spread out in prayer. I have read some of his awesome prayers and wished that I could pray with such power, but he was unsatisfied and said his prayers had become his sin! He advised other nations, when many of them thought our government was a miracle to behold: You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.
  4. John Adams devoured libraries and scripture and served his country most of his life and was overseas representing America for years. He and his wife exchanged many letters with a spiritual nature and discussed how to raise kids and how to live. He said The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.
  5. Thomas Jefferson said: The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.
  6. James Madison who wrote Washington’s first inaugural address, which is all about Christ, also said: A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest, while we are building ideal monuments of renown and bliss here, we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven. In other words, leaders should fear God and be Christians as he is the only way to Heaven.
  7. John Quincy Adams studied the Bible in 12 languages! He said: In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.

Note: There is much more in my e book, America, Christ’s Top Nation Has Fallen which is available at Amazon and wherever e books are sold.

The quotes of our first president are from http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=8755 and I hope you mark it as a favorite on your computer as I have. Wall Builders is awesome and you will find their quotes from numerous founders very entertaining!

What we have just looked at is America’s righteousness from Christ at our founding. Now let us look at America’s huge problem of Satan’s self righteousness and unrighteousness and Political Correctness now governing America.

  1. The indignant self righteous quote from the liberals is now, You didn’t build that. The inference is we the people built it and we need most of the money you have earned from it. If man is blessed beyond what he needs it is from God. Liberals think they need to control God’s blessings and give it to who they think should get it! This is basically liberals trying to play God and it cannot work as God is showing America. This is against Biblical principals at the most basic level. Mans walk on earth is between him and God not him and big government.
  2. When America rebelled in the early sixties, the two presidents of that time were John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson who both were rebellious philanderers of the highest order and proud of it.
  3. Richard Nixon was hounded out of office because he lied to the American people. That statement was heard on most news cast on almost every evening. Because of self righteousness, lies by our current liberal leaders hardly raise a yawn and are hardly ever mentioned in America’s liberal media because a liberal lie is a necessity and a non-event.
  4. After Bill Clintons election where the self righteous phrase, It is the economy stupid, was so effective, it came out that he had lied about the economy and the liberal press justified the lie by saying he had just done what he needed to do to get elected.
  5. God’s word declares homosexuality and taking the life of the unborn abominations. Now America’s self righteous liberals proclaim these practices are totally acceptable and viciously attack anyone who claims otherwise.
  6. Obama and Hilary Clinton, were both fans of Saul Alinsky, who wrote the 12 rules for radicals, which are about as anti Christian as man can get and when they are followed, self righteousness is put in practice.
  7. In self righteousness, liberals keep asking for more money to help the poor and then keep most of the money as they on average collect salaries about four times higher than the poor! All the while they self righteously proclaim they are for the poor and so should we!
  8. Government makes a mess of most everything they manage but out of self righteousness think they should be managing everything as they keep on piling more laws and regulations which of course they need to enforce. That is what Obama care is all about.

I am amazed how fast liberal self righteous domination of Americans is growing!

  1. Pastor’s sermons have now been subpoenaed.
  2. Liberals are now trying to end church tax exemptions.

The solution for saving America from self righteousness is massive revival and repentance.

10-21-14 Radicalism in America

10-21-14                                               Radicalism in America

America is being overwhelmed with radicalism. Let us take a look at some of the radicalism in America.

Did you know that Saul Alinsky’s (see last week’s post), whose radical ideas had a profound effect on Obama and Hilary, was a community organizer? Evidently Obama found being a community organizer a high calling and that is what he became. We can’t look at his record while he taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago but we can see that he was radical as a community organizer. He supported A.C.O.R.N, Association Of Community Organizations For Reform Now, and did lawyer work for them. Not only that, but he tried to give ACORN a nationwide role in helping him govern America until a couple of conservatives made videos of local ACORN offices supporting not only prostitution but child prostitution among other things.

ACORNS goals at its founding was to get so many people on welfare that it would bankrupt the government and bring socialism. While an Illinois legislator, Obama proposed a bill allowing euthanasia of children and he was the only one voting for it. He had also said the problem with America’s constitution was that it did not state what the government had to do for American’s like give them housing, health care, jobs and on and on, an unending list. Did he teach that? He probably did. Obama had a lot to hide before he could become president.

Some of you may be shocked to learn these things but TEA partiers knew them all. That is why they are so adamantly hated by liberals. For instance, Bob Beckel of Fox News The Five, gets paranoid whenever the TEA party is mentioned. Bob openly states they have to be stopped. Lois Lerner, of the IRS did her best and when exposed, Obama was going to promote her until she got too hot to associate with!

Todd Starnes is a good source of news about American’s radicals bullying Christians in America. Here is a partial list of what can be found at his website: http://www.foxnews.com/archive/todd-starnes/index.html?intcmp=subnav Wake up America! I hope you will visit Todd’s website and look at all the shocking headlines and read some of his news stories.

For instance, in one of Todd’s reports, I was shocked to learn that communist China’s tactic of re-education of opponents has come to America in Lexington, Kentucky. When the owner of a T-shirt company refused to do an order for LBGT, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender group, it was decided by the Lexington Human Rights Commission that:

A Lexington Human Rights Commission hearing examiner issued a recommended ruling that the owner of a T-shirt company violated a local ordinance against sexual-orientation discrimination. You can read the ruling by clicking here.

Take just a moment and let that sink in – a Christian business owner is being ordered to attend diversity training – because of his religious beliefs. That’s a pretty frightening concept and a mighty dangerous precedent. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/07/commission-says-christian-business-owners-should-leave-religion-at-home/

In essence, on less Christ’s Church starts getting involved in battling these radical politics of destruction in America, religious freedom will be lost. Shouldn’t it be the goal of evangelical churches to stay in business? Look at what is happening in Houston. The city is calling for LGBT people to be able to use either the Men or Women’s bathrooms as they choose, even in churches. The lesbian mayor and her liberal democrat backers subpoenaed the sermons of pastors who spoke out on this ordinance. The Texas attorney general told Houston to back off on subpoenaing the sermons! I am very pleased that the Southern Baptist joined the fight to protect the sermons. So how have the radical liberal democrats responded? This is Political Correctness taken to its logical end; speech must be politically correct or you will be in trouble.

From a Todd Starnes news story: Five Christian pastors will no longer have to turn their sermons over to attorneys for the city of Houston. Instead, they will be forced to turn over their speeches related to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO).

I don’t mean to point out the obvious here – but what do those attorneys think a sermon is? It’s a speech.

According to an amended motion filed Friday in Harris County, Texas court, the city’s attorneys will no longer demand sermons related to homosexuals, gender identity, or Mayor Annise Parker – Houston’s first openly lesbian mayor.

The amended subpoenas do require the pastors to turn over “all speeches or presentations related to HERO” – along with 17 different categories of information.

This is a typical radical politics fishing expedition to find something to hang evangelicals on. This is in accordance with ten of Saul Alinsky’s twelve rules for radicals! Wake up America and its churches. America’s radical politicians are following Alinskys Rules For Radicals and of course they mean to attack Christ’s Church with these rules! As Alinsky suggested, Obama is trying his best to destroy all opposition to his radicalism.

America needs to be on its knees in submission to The Great Governor of the Universe. We have numerous examples throughout the Bible on how well this works. Here is a great example form 1 Chronicles 5:20: They were helped against them, and the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hand; for they cried out to God in the battle, and He answered their prayers because they trusted in Him. The story of Gideon trusting the Great Governor and attacking with only three hundred when he first had thirty thousand soldiers is in Judges! The story of David calling down the Lord for help is in Psalm 18.

America, please be more familiar with the Old Testament. That is where the stories of The Great Governor helping his people and nation and how He destroys nations who are against Him are found and as Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11, what happened to Israel are to be examples to us who follow in the later days.

There is no end to how radical liberals are at war with America. At the sprawling nuclear facility in Tennessee they decided they needed to do away with the southern drawl because wouldn’t the people rather be remembered for what they said instead of how they said it, which evidently is a huge turnoff for America’s Big Government Liberal Democrats? http://www.hrmorning.com/employer-to-southern-workers-you-sound-dumb-and-we-can-fix-that/

Many Americans are puzzled over Obama, the narcissist, and what he is doing. It is not puzzling when you consider what he is doing is not about America it is about Obama and his status as a world leader. The Germans and liberals worldwide got it when he went to Germany when running for president and he said now is our time and they cheered wildly! The Pulitzer prize people were so impressed they gave him a Pulitzer prize for peace as if the battle between liberals and conservatives had been won! About the only people who didn’t get it where America’s big government republicans.

10-14-14 Sual Alinsky’s Grip on America

10-14-14                                               Saul Alinsky’s Grip on America

Please look at the radical Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals which follow and see if you can find any- thing Christian and forth right and anything good for America in the rule goals and know that Saul Alinsky’s books and ideas are popular at America’s universities! As you read them please consider how these rules explain so much of what is happening in America. Please also consider how a biased liberal press makes adhering to these rules easy and very effective! These are from Glen Becks website with his comments removed, but they are available other places. http://www.bestofbeck.com/wp/activism/saul-alinskys-12-rules-for-radicals,

Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals

* RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

* RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

* RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.

* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

* RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

* RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

Did you find anything Christian? I found them wicked as can be and wished no one in America would adhere to them.

Guess what? Two of America’s top leaders follow Saul Alinsky and his radical ideas. Obama is one and I suspect one of the reasons he spent millions hiding his background was because one of the things he taught in his constitutional law class at the University of Chicago was Saul Alinskys ideas. By the way, there is some info on the web apparently there to mislead people that states Obama never taught constitutional law. But if you go to this White House website it states he did: http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/president-obama!

The majority of Americans, even a lot who voted for him, hate what Obama has done to America. Well get prepared for a Hillary Clinton presidency because she is an even bigger fan of Saul Alinsky than Obama.

When Obama ran for president, I prayed for America and pleaded with the Lord that He not make Obama president because I fully understand Colossians 1:15-17: 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. But the Lord gave us Obama as president because Obama is what a fallen nation deserves and if America does not seek the Lord and follow his ways, America is likely to get Hillary Clinton as president and she may well prove to be even more radical than Obama as she is an even bigger fan of Saul Alinskys.

Maybe you have problems with Christ’s sovereignty deciding what person is in America’s White House? Please consider this, Christ, The Great Governor of the Universe must and does govern! He governs because He created all things and therefore it is His to govern. Psalm 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You. The Great Governor even knows what the people who don’t vote want and so He gives nations what the people deserve. If you have problems with that consider that at America’s founding, almost every one of our leaders were not only Christians but awesome Christians and America had very Godly men as president for at least five of the first six presidents (I do not know much about Monroe, our fifth president or those who followed John Quincy Adams) and many more afterward. We became the world’s top nation with Christian leadership and without that, we are struggling and cannot thrive just like the Bible tells us (see Deuteronomy 28).

Some of the other scripture on the Lords governance and help to His creation are in Psalm 2, Psalm 9, Psalm 18, Psalm 104, and Psalm 145.

Please note this: Last week I wrote about the evils of the Muslim religion and how Muslims are called to behead non-believers and to slaughter non Muslims by their holy book, and I quoted the Quran. Then on last Sunday, the 12th of October 2014, Jack Van Impe said on his program that he had went back through the Quran and said there are 106 verses on beheading and 164 on killing non-believers. And some of America’s well known pastor leaders tell America that Muslims are a peaceful people?

Christ’s Churches in America can help save America from ruin if they will only get involved in politics and try.

My e book is America, Christ’s Top Nation Has Fallen and it is available at Amazon and many other e book outlets. My book tells how Christ helped America at our founding, made us the top nation* and then how and when America rebelled and fell. *but never replaced the Lord’s special nation of Israel.

10-7-14 Why Muslims Do Not Condemn Terrorism

10-7-14                                 Why Muslims Do Not Condemn Terrorist

Do you wonder why Muslims are silent on terrorist acts like the 9/11/01 bombing of the twin towers in New York City, and the other acts of that day, which killed over three thousand Americans? While Muslims do not vocally condemn terrorist acts, they do celebrate these horrific acts and have established worship sites by each of the three 9/11 terrorist sites. They celebrate the terrorist acts because their Quran calls for them to be terrorist! In return, it is unbelievable; but, America accommodated the Muslims, who cannot be peacefully accommodated and let them have a place of worship near the Twin Tower terrorist site, near the Pentagon crash site, and the Flight 93 site by Shanksville, PA! Please see the following links:

New York City: See the Mosque site Obama approved of:

http://www.deccanherald.com/content/98687/york-mosque-close-911-site.html

Muslims pray daily 90 feet from the Pentagon crash site: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/19/muslims-pray-daily-80-fee_n_686870.html

The Shanksville, PA memorial includes a Muslim crescent moon: http://michellemalkin.com/2005/09/10/flight-93-memorial-seeing-is-believing/

Weep for America as our delusion has blinded us.

The Muslim Quran calls for acts of terrorism and the Muslims who perform them are therefore worthy of worship by Muslims. The following references were on Jack Van Impe’s program, 9/28/14, which is on Time Warner cable’s channel 1018 in our area at 8:00 AM Sundays. You can find way more verses of similar nature to the following at http://unmaskingislam.com/article2.htm:

Surah 4:89 -“Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them —

Surah 7:4 And how many cities have We destroyed, and Our punishment came to them at night or while they were sleeping at noon.

Surah 8:12 I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.

Surah 8:60 Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah—

Surah 9:5 then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war—

Surah 9:23 O ye who believe! Fight the Unbelievers—

Surah 47:4 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks

Romans 12:18 tells us: If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men but how can we be at peace with people sworn to kill us when it comes to dealing with Muslim groups or nations. Being at peace with these Muslim groups who desire to kill us just doesn’t compute for most of us but it makes perfect sense to many liberals and our president! This is especially true when you consider how their lying to non-Muslims is a perfectly acceptable form of Muslim warfare when performing the Jihad called for in the Quran.

I found the following at http://www.islam-watch.org/Warner/Taqiyya-Islamic-Principle-Lying-for-Allah.htm by http://www.davidpryce-jones.com/ available at http://www.amazon.com/The-Closed-Circle-Interpretation-Burlingame/dp/1566638267:

Lying and cheating in the Arab world is not really a moral matter but a method of safeguarding honor and status, avoiding shame, and at all times exploiting possibilities, for those with the wits for it, deftly and expeditiously to convert shame into honor on their own account and vice versa for their opponents. If honor so demands, lies and cheating may become absolute imperatives.” [David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed Circle” An interpretation of the Arabs, p4]

“No dishonor attaches to such primary transactions as selling short weight, deceiving anyone about quality, quantity or kind of goods, cheating at gambling, and bearing false witness. The doer of these things is merely quicker off the mark than the next fellow; owing him nothing, he is not to be blamed for taking what he can.” [David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed Circle”, p38]

America’s basic problem in dealing with Muslims is that we need to recognize the requirements they follow and negotiate knowing they can break what we negotiated with no moral problem and it doesn’t help when we have Muslims in our government involved in some of these things.

Muslims say convert or die. The next American scheduled for an ISIS beheading had converted to Islam before his capture so there is another Muslim lie.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/3823918744001/parents-of-isis-hostage-say-he-wrote-letter-to-family/#sp=show-clips&v=3823918744001

America, wake up, Muslims are called on to behead non-Muslims by their holy book, the Quran and that includes non-Muslim Americans. See Surah 8:12 and 47:4 above. Makes one wonder how in the world people who say we worship the same god, like Rick Warren, and others who push for Chrislam (Muslims and Christians worshipping together) can sleep at night.

Yesterday I came across this story of a Pakistan family stoning their daughter to death in front of a court! Her crime was hanging on to the arm of her husband that the family did not approve of as they were going into the court to settle an argument with the family. Last year, there were 869 known cases of women being killed for similar crimes in just Pakistan. One of Europe’s biggest problems is that they allowed Sharia Law (the moral code and religious law of a prophetic religion) or looked the other way as it was practiced and of course things quickly got out of control. Please look at this website on the Pakistan case:

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/05/27/pakistani-woman-stoned-to-death-by-family-in-front-court-after-marrying-for/

In Arizona a Muslim father killed his daughter for becoming too western by running over her! Muslims will find a way or ignore our laws in carrying out their religion.

http://abcnews.go.com/WN/US/westernized-muslim-daughter-dies-run-father/story?id=8983198

Can anyone accommodate Satan? A former Satan worshipper told me he tried and found it impossible. America and the world must learn the same lesson on accommodating Muslims.

I pondered writing this for a couple of weeks and it came down to this, did I want to be a warrior for the Lord or didn’t I and I decided I would trust in my Lord and Savior for protection and speak out. How about you, are you brave enough to pass this on? I’ve tried to give you references to information that will lead to much more information to hopefully empower you and convict you. This document is mostly worthless if not passed on. Please ask the Lord to guide you and if needed, convict you of the need to do so.

9-30-14 Liberalisms Anti Christian Roots

9-30-14 Liberalisms Anti Christian Roots
In 1877, The National Liberal League published these anti Christian demands. My assessment of their success will the comments:
THE DEMANDS OF LIBERALISM from the National Liberal League in 1877
1. We demand that churches and other ecclesiastical property shall no longer be exempt from just taxation. Comment: Not yet but will probably be coming in the near future.
2. We demand that the employment of chaplains in Congress, in State legislatures, in the navy and militia, and in prisons, asylums, and all other institutions supported by public money, shall be discontinued. Comment: The use of non Christian chaplains along with Christians is now required and the practice of Christianity is being restricted such as do not pray in Jesus name.
3. We demand that all public appropriations for educational and charitable institutions of a sectarian character shall cease. Comment: Implemented.
4. We demand that all religious services now sustained by the Government shall be abolished (comment: just about complete) and especially that the use of the Bible in the public schools, whether ostensibly as a text-book or avowedly as a book of religious worship, shall be prohibited. Comment: The Bible and prayer (with the exception of Muslim prayers in some areas) are banned from public schools and this has led to America’s downfall.
5. We demand that the appointment, by the President of the United States, or by the Governors of the various States, of all religious festivals and fasts shall wholly cease. Comment: Our current president does not call for the observance of Christian days as previous presidents have.
6. We demand that the judicial oath in the courts and in all other departments of the Government shall be abolished, and that simple affirmation under the pains and penalties of perjury shall be established in its stead. Comment: Muslims can now pledge on the Quran.
7. We demand that all laws directly or indirectly enforcing the observance of Sunday as the Sabbath shall be repealed. Comment: The Sabbath is pretty much just another day in America.
8. We demand that all laws looking to the enforcement of “Christian” morality shall be abrogated, and that all laws shall be conformed to the requirements of natural morality, equal rights, and impartial liberty. Comment: Thankfully, not yet. This demand is totally ignorant as only the creator can set the morals in place that will work in his creation.
9. We demand that not only in the Constitutions of the United States, and of the several States, but also in the practical administration of the same, no privilege or advantage shall be conceded to Christianity or any other special religion; that our entire political system shall be founded and administered on a purely secular basis; and that whatever changes shall prove necessary to this end shall be consistently, unflinchingly, and promptly made. Comment: The Constitution has not been changed but the enforcement of it is ignored or miscarried in many places.
The National Liberal League became the American Secular Union in 1885 and both had atheist founders and were for separation of Christ’s Church and state. One atheist founder, Robert Ingersol, was good at rewriting history! Maybe that is where Liberalisms hidden agendas and other deceptions come from. The lies and deception of the present liberal administration are new almost every day and since America has a liberal press that will not hold liberals accountable, there is no need for the lies to stop since honesty for honesties sake is not a priority.
What is really sad is that liberalism has become the Democratic Party and that Christ Church for the most part has ignored the evil of liberalism and has treated it as just politics! Sadly, these are the politics that are destroying what Jesus Christ, The Great Governor, gave America. May God have mercy on America because the safest place in America for an unborn baby should be the mother’s womb but that is the most dangerous place to be by far in today’s liberal America.
May God have mercy on America for our rebellion in 1962 and 1963. I marvel that I seem to be the only one thinking America rebelled. The liberal demands above were pretty much ignored until America’s rebellion but more and more of these anti Christian demands have been met since America’s rebellion.
Almost daily, some liberal in America mistreats little kids when they see them praying in school. Recently one picked up a little kid in the cafeteria and shook them and hollered at them in front of all the other kids!
Demands like the right to abortion and gay rights have come with America’s rebellion and they were not requested back in 1877 because those ideas were too evil to be mentioned back then and these unspeakable sins being a perfectly acceptable right would have been unthinkable at that time but now since America’s rebellion, they are proudly paraded down America’s streets and you will see bumper stickers for the political leaders who bring these so called rights in the parking lots of Christ Churches! God have mercy on America.
I would love to hear from others who think America rebelled.

9-23-14 Biblical Wisdom Part Three

9-23-14 Biblical Wisdom Part Three
It was stated in part one that I needed to clean up my computer area of Post-its notes on scripture that was not used in previous posts so we can start the year fresh. I’m not doing a very good job of it as about every scripture reminds me of some-thing that should be written indidvidually.
America’s main problem is that we as a nation have forgotten that our benefactor, Jesus Christ, The Great Governor of the Universe, made us the world’s top nation. Let us look at some Biblical wisdom on this.
The Great Governor worked with Moses to lead Israel out of Egypt to start His nation and they came out fully financed with the gold of Egypt and even clothing from Egypt. He then fed, watered and protected them in every way, even health wise, in a harsh desert for forty years. Let us look at some scripture:
Exodus 13:21 The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. And 14:24 At the morning watch, the Lord looked down on the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud and brought the army of the Egyptians into confusion. Deuteronomy 8:4 Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.
The Great Governor then made all kinds of awesome promises for Israel’s future welfare (Deuteronomy 15:4) and prosperity if they would only follow Him:
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 “Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God:
3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
4 “Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.
5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7 “The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways. 8 The LORD will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you. 9 The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10 So all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of you. 11 The LORD will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, 14 and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

And the Lord made even more promises like you should have no poor! All this came true but Israel later forgot the Lord and so the Lord had to destroy them. Will that happen to America because just as Paul said what happened to Israel was meant to teach those who follow in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11? America had godly founders who followed Biblical knowledge and this all came true for America also. But like Israel, America rebelled and turned from the Lord and now we are suffering mightily as we keep failing in about every endeavor because the simple truth is no nation can prosper and be successful without the Lord. America, the most powerful nation, is not in the Bible in the end times. Could it be that America must be destroyed like Israel? Could it be that America’s destruction will happen suddenly when America no longer supports Israel which is looking more and more likely to happen.
America’s only hope is repentance and revival and it must start in Christ’s churches.
Deuteronomy 28 follows the 14 verses of fantastic promises with a passage of 54 verses of curses if the Lord is not followed and these horrible curses did happen. Even the most horrible unspeakable curses did happen. Surely Christ’s Church cares enough for America that it will find a way to turn America from our evil path.
One of America’s great evangelist of an America awakening said the church must take the right ground.
Now about those old Post-it notes. They have been thrown and we will start fresh next week. I have faith the Lord will keep guiding me and in any event, I’ll be making more Post-it notes this week! The Bible is to exciting to not make notes.

9-16-14 Biblical Wisdom Part Two

9-16-14                                                 Biblical Wisdom Part Two

Of all the Biblical Wisdom America is missing the most is this; government by the people and for the people has been stolen by Satan’s liberalism! Those are strong but timely words.

The Bible is not silent on the kind of government God wants for His people. A short review of Deuteronomy gives us many awesome promises if people would only follow The Great Governor and His Word’s wisdom on Government. 15:4 However, there will be no poor among you, since the Lord will surely bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, 5 if only you listen obediently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all this commandment which I am commanding you today. 6 For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you. And there are many more promises which Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:6 and 11 tells us were meant to teach us who follow. Our founders took this advice to heart but modern liberalism has tossed this wisdom out the window as so much foolishness. Thou shalt not has become thou can do what you want with the approval of popular sins. America’s downfall is because when we rebelled, whether sin is a sin now depends on how popular it is and how many approve of it instead of the Bibles definition of what sin is! The Lord being a nations benefactor when His ways are followed has become worldly big government is your benefactor and Christianity shall be kept out of government!

I seem to be alone in talking about Americas rebellion in 1962 and 63 and its consequences but look at the results when compared to the above scripture. America now owes many nations and even nations that are our enemies overwhelming debt. Designating more and more people as poor people and taking care of the poor has become one of America’s biggest enterprises but it is actually more about taking care of big government than the poor.

Look at the background of this idea of government by the people and for the people. Wycliffe translated the first English Bible in the late thirteen hundreds and he wrote in the flyleaf that the Bible was translated and should make possible government by people and for people. The English Bible became the most referenced document by a wide margin by America’s founding fathers and the book of Deuteronomy was one of their favorite books.

Columbus said he was led by the Holy Spirit to find a people not yet evangelized. The Pilgrims Mayflower Compact declared the same idea as did many other of our founding documents of other states and even cities. One of my favorites is when the New England colonies came to gather in 1641 to form a loose confederation, they declared whereas we have come into these parts for the same ends and reason, to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ! Christ tells us in the Bible that He came to set us free (Galatians 5) and our founders understood this concept.

So what happened to government by the people and for the people that Lincoln reminded us of in the Gettysburg address? If you don’t agree it has been stolen by Satan’s liberalism please consider these ideas.

If big governments help for the poor was really meant to help the poor, wouldn’t these big government people ensure most all of the money designated for the poor would actually go to the poor? But that is not what we have. In reality, considering government salaries and pensions and other cost, big government keeps about 75 percent while only about twenty five percent of the money goes to the poor. Not only that, the median salary of a government worker is about 80,000 dollars or almost four times what a single poor person is expected to live on! Big government can argue until the cows come home that they are for the poor but until the poor get most of the money (like about eighty five percent of it) that is a lie. In the meantime we can only hope the poor will come to understand these big government people are not their friends.

The main benefactors, of big governments spending on the poor, is big government politicians and workers instead of the poor people. American government is no longer for the governed but those doing the governing. As the liberals like to say, follow the money and you will find the corruption. That worked in exposing Nixon and will work for the enlightenment of America on whether big government is really for the people or itself.

That is why the Great Governor in His Wisdom, never ever called for any government to hand benefits to people. The Great Governor intended for government to set His people free not enslave them. Look what is happening on health care. Big government wants to also gain control of health care spending supposedly to help the few people without health care so they can be equal in every way to those who earn their health care. To do this, health care has been projected to cost as much as three times or more than when it was private and guess who get all that money? Here again follow the money and you will find health care is more for the benefit of big government than the people, most of which want no part of it.

Wake up America! You have lost the greatest right the Lord gave you. What America now has is an ever more greedy big government demanding any excess that the Lord might bless us with by claiming it as theirs. They suggest we should be generous in paying taxes but they are anything but generous once they have the hard earned money of the tax payers.

Look at the wisdom of our founders and a judgment on what we had by a foreigner:

Jefferson thought the idea that the one who earned the money be forced to give it to others ridiculous:

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816

“A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” — Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” — Thomas Jefferson

Ben Franklin made fun of the English when they started giving government benefits.

Alexis de Tocqueville came from France to study the miracle of the new nation of America’s government and he said, “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” And “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” Alexis de Tocqueville

Look how true our founders and de Tocqueville’s predictions proved to be.

9-9-14 Biblical Wisdom Part One

As I start to write the second post of the second year of posting, I am contemplating all the good Bible verses strung out before me on Post-its that I have not used in previous post. Let us look at some of these and see if we can find some wisdom to share.
I am amazed at how many people are unhappy with government today. It is as if wisdom is absent in government. That should be expected since Fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) and little fear of the Lord is evident in governance today. If the Lord gives wisdom then edicts not in line with the Bible cannot be good. America needs Biblical guidance more and more as the days go by in our downward plunge.
Proverbs 2:2-5: 2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;
3 For if you cry for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will discern the fear of the LORD
And discover the knowledge of God.
And if nations do not follow this advice: Psalms 9:
7 But the LORD abides forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,
8 And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
15 The nations have sunk down in the pit which they have made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The LORD has made Himself known;
He has executed judgment.
In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared.

If only America had leadership intelligent enough to call for a return to the Lord. This is from Psalm 46:10:
Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
America is striving with many other nations since we turned from him. If the Lord were to speak to America as He did to all of Israel at Bochim in Judges 2:1-5; might He not say return to me and I will protect you? Look at this scripture from Psalm 47:
O clap your hands, all peoples;
Shout to God with the voice of joy.
2 For the LORD Most High is to be feared,
A great King over all the earth.
3 He subdues peoples under us
And nations under our feet.
4 He chooses our inheritance for us,
The glory of Jacob whom He loves. Selah.
5 God has ascended with a shout,
The LORD, with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with a skillful psalm.
8 God reigns over the nations,
God sits on His holy throne
.
America is very unhappy with our government but what we have is the inheritance we have strove for fifty years now since our rebellion in 1963. America needs Christ’s Church to call for a return to our benefactor and call out those politicians who approve of evil. Isn’t that what 2 Timothy 4:2 calls for?
2 Timothy 4:2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
