Atheist Comedian Meets a Christian

Most of you have heard of the famous comic-duo of Penn and Teller. They have preformed in Vegas for years. Below I will post a video clip of Penn (who is an atheist) telling of a very moving (and hopefully transforming) encounter he had with a Christian man who gave him a Gideon's bible.

This should make all of us Christians sit up and listen when an atheist chastises us for not telling others about what we believe to be true.

Zimbabwe has Collapsed

This is a pretty sad article when you consider all the poor men, women and innocent children who will lead miserable lives then suffer and die. All this because some satanic leader (President Mugabe)took once stable and relatively prosperous Zimbabwe and led it right down a hellish-corrupt-rathole.

Of course the world will just sit and watch (or try not to watch) the tradgedy unfold. Why?...because no one has the stomach and/or money to send young men from America, or France or the UK over to Africa to die trying to deliver food and medicine. Does anybody remember Somalia and the movie "BLACK HAWK DOWN?" We were only trying to save the starving people from evil war-lords but when U.S. soldiers were shot down, killed and their corpses dragged through the streets...President Clinton quickly pulled out. By the way, those war-lords were mulism extremists who learned a lesson about American power and how a few corpses dragged around can defeat it.

The only countries that SHOULD handle this mess are the border countries in Africa...but that won't happen either. Those countries have enough of their own problems. How about the UN? Can't this global agency put together a force to go an save the day??

"A day earlier at the United Nations, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that during the past four months he has asked at least 50 nations and three international organizations to support the council's request for a multinational force to stabilize Somalia.
He said the "lukewarm or negative" replies he had received led him to believe there is almost no international support for a UN force. "

So there is your answer...UN asked 50 nations if they would help Zimbabwe, and there were no takers. Read article here;

What will the world do? Maybe we should start forming a one-world-government and a one-world-army so that we can all work together and handle these problems? And so sets the stage for the anti-christ.

White Christmas....In Vegas??

This quote from a Las Vegas meteorologist about sums it up; "This is the most snow we've had in Las Vegas in almost 30 years," said Chris Stachelski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "It's a significant historical event."

Read article here;

It's also rather strange that snow was falling in Malibu, California along with freezing cold all through California.,2933,469164,00.html

If all Americans were asked to contribute a few thousand bucks out of their own pockets to combat the threat of "Global Warming"...I wonder how many people from the bankrupt state of California would currently donate?

Also remember that in September, I posted an article on the lack of sunspots for the entire month of August. Moon watchers at that time predicted a cold winter that would be ushering in a 30 year cold spell for planet earth. Only God knows.

Even Sweden Gets an Earthquake

Jesus said there would be earthquakes in various places...and this would be one of the signs that would usher in His return to earth. Now remember, the rapture of the church is imminent. There is nothing that has to happen for the trumpet to blow to announce the coming of the Bridegroom for His bride. But we also know that as soon as we are gone, (raptured) the 70th Week of Daniel will start to play out. (also referred to as The Tribulation) So about 7 yrs after we are raptured, we will return with Christ to earth to reign and rule with Him during the millenium.

So what we are seeing is the foreshadowing of all these events (prophesies fulfilled) that will take place AFTER we are gone from planet earth. The earthquakes in Illinois, Sweden, Iran, China, etc... are all birth pangs that will continue to grow more frequent and more "various" until Christ returns at the end of the tribulation.

Also remember that when Christ does return to earth and touches down on the Mount of Olives that a HUGE earthquake will crack the mountain in half and rearrange all of planet earth. So all these tremors and quakes are the earth's birth pangs as it gets ready for one final earthquake that will be larger than anything the earth has ever experienced.

All you Swedish Covenanters can read about the Swedish earthquake here;

Also note that this was the biggest one recorded there in over 100 years. Pretty say the least.

A Shakin' Goin' On

The headline reads, "For the First Time in History...." or "The Strongest ever recorded...." or "The Most ever recorded...".

Here is just another one to add to the list;

The article is about the interest rate that U.S. Government Bonds are paying that they are the lowest in history. You may ask why that would be? This blurb from the article pretty much sums it up, "...stoking demand for the relative safety of government assets amid concern the 16-month credit crisis will persist."

Henry Kissenger

Many of you have probably seen the talk show, Charlie Rose. It's on here on PBS-17 from 10:30 to 11:30. Last night the guest was Henry Kissenger. He's a pretty big name in foreign affairs as he served as Secratary of State under President Nixon.

Many things he said were very interesting. But the one that stuck out in my mind was when the discussion turned to all the global chaos and flashpoints happening all over the world. He said, "The world needs to come together under one international body to solve the serious problems that the global community is currently experiencing."

To me, this is more evidence that the Word of God is being brought to life before our very eyes. A short time ago, we used to wonder how the world would ever be brought together under one-world-government to fulfill the prophecy of the anti-christ. Now we know....they won't need pressure for it to happen....the people will be ASKING for it to happen.

Again, we all need to pray, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done."

Iraqi Shoe Thrower...Good News

Many of you, no doubt, have seen the video clip of President Bush's recent trip to Iraq. While he was standing on stage with the Iraqi President, a journalist stood up from the crowd and threw his shoe at President Bush. President Bush displayed remarkable reflexes and was able to dodge the first shoe...and the second shoe...before secret service wrestled the man to the ground and took him away.

Why is this interesting? Why is this good news? Becuase the people in Iraq are openly talking about the incident. Some people hail him as a hero for insulting Bush because they hate him. Some people think it was rude and he should go to jail. Furthermore, they are willing to have this debate in the open and and are even willing to give their opinions AND THIER NAMES to newspaper reporters!!

Do you realize what would have happened during Saddam's rule to someone who dared throw a shoe anywhere close to Saddam? He most likely would have had his skin peeled off in Abu Gharib prison. Do you realize what would have happened to people who dared give their names to a newspaper saying anything uncomplimentary towards Saddam's regime? They and their entire family, most likely would now be in a shallow grave with bullet holes in their heads.

So this event should be celebrated as we watch (along with the entire Arab world) the Iraqi people openly debate in society, which is a sure sign of liberty and freedom. I have no doubt that America, at an incredible cost of life and treasure, has given the Iraqi people a priceless gift. Yes it will be unstable, and yes it will have setbacks....just like the rest of us who live in a free society ruled by imperfect law.

Let freedom ring!!

Wall Street Bubbles

As the real estate market has fallen and trillions of dollars of home equity has vanished...we always look for someone to blame. We try blaming the real estate agent, the mortgage broker, Alan Greenspan for keeping rates low, our brother in law for talking us into it...the list goes on an on. People usually don't want to look in the mirror and realize that they bought more house than they could afford and they should have known better to not use a "No money down" mortgage with a ridiculously low interest rate and is now set to explode. But since they refuse to look in the mirror and refuse to suffer the coming pain of losing a house or continuing to pay on a mortgage that is now greater than the value of the home...they want someone else to take the pain. As if right on rides the Federal Government to bail us all out, using paper money and phony promises. When will we ever learn??...the answer is "Never".

This is an awesome article from an insider on Wall Street who lost his career in the "Dot-Com" tech stock run and then jumped right into the next expanding bubble ...real estate.

Paper Money

What is money...really? It's paper. What happens when the faith and confidence in that paper evaporates? Answer; the entire system evaporates. So when a whole society builds all it's "wealth" on really become a rather large house of cards.

Please read this article. It's an interview from the guy in China who manages all the U.S. paper that they have bought.

King Solomon told us that ultimately, "The borrower will become slave to the lender". I don't think he got the title, "Wisest man in the world" without a reason.

The West vs. Magog vs. Ishmael

Read this article from a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and understand that the bible says the last days will have Russia and militant arabs both seeking to destroy Israel (little satan) and America (great satan).

He says that America will have to be the defender of western values because no one else in the west will be willing and/or able to stand against these threats.


Pray for America and it's leaders during this huge spiritual battle for planet earth.

God Continues to Bring Jews Home

The first huge influx of Jews back to Israel was a result of severe persecution at the hands of Adolf Hitler. This year Jews are expected to return to Israel because of the declining economic conditions in many countries around the world. God's Word continues to be fulfilled that the Jews will continue to be drawn back to the promised land.

Do These People Sound Like They Want Peace?

Hamas had a big anniversary celebration yesterday. They were celebrating 21 yrs of hatred and violence. The AP said over 300,000 people turned out to hear their leaders spew lies and promises of more hatred and killing of Jews. The day even included a skit with an actor playing a Jewish soldier beggin Hamas for his freedom. This was a taunting effort that played on the Gilad Shalit kidnapping over 2 1/2 yrs ago who they are still holding hostage.

Also a looming roadblock to peace is that Hamas is claiming they will refuse to recognize the Fatah elected government which is hanging on to power in the West Bank. So a civil war may need to be fought first so they can then commence seeking to destroy Israel.

I'm sorry for the pessimism...but what an absolute JOKE that the U.S. is demanding that Israel and the Arabs in Palestine come up with a peace plan and most of the pressure is going to come at Israel to make that peace, by giving concessions to the hate-filled Hamas.
