Ignorance Abroad

We all know by now that Obama ran around the world last month apologizing to everyone for everything that is wrong in America. Obama believes that such behavior is humbling to our friends and enemies and further believes that it will draw them closer to us so we can all start singing "Kum-ba-Yah" around a glorious campfire....complete with marshmallows and chocolate.

Today the Jerusalem Post has these accurate assessments of "Messiah Obama";

There were those in Israel who suspected Obama of being a kind of wolf in sheep's clothing, preparing with a friendly smile to offer up Israel as a sacrifice to its regional enemies.
The picture emerging from the alleged details of his plan suggest a different, though not necessarily more comforting characterization: When it comes to the Middle East, Obama is an innocent abroad.

As "the chosen one" cavorts around the world...certain of his charm and confident of his success....the dark side of this spiritual battle cackles in delight.

I Hate it When I'm Right!!

I realize fully that blowing your own horn and saying, "I told you so!" VERY unattractive. That being said...I am fully human and just can't resist. So I apologize in advance.

This is what I posted on April 17, 2008 in regards to the U.S. Government bailing out everyone;

If they (U.S. Gov't) guessed wrong on their risk and they end up holding the bag, they could lose their AAA credit rating. If this happens, it could double the cost of repaying our defecit literally overnight and send the country into a financial tailspin that could be very difficult to recover from. Could this be one of the reasons that the U.S. is nowhere to be found in biblical prophesy?

Today, May 22, 2009, this is what is being said in Bloomberg;

The dollar extended declines today after Treasuries and American stocks slumped on concern the U.S. government’s debt rating may at some point be lowered. Bill Gross, the co-chief investment officer of Pacific Investment Management Co., said the U.S. “eventually” will lose its AAA grade.

And check out this paragraph;
Gross said in an interview yesterday on Bloomberg Television that while a U.S. sovereign rating cut is “certainly nothing that’s going to happen overnight,” markets are “beginning to anticipate the possibility.” Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, speaking in Hong Kong today, nevertheless argues it’s “hard to believe” the U.S. would ever default. (emphasis mine)

Yes Paul....I'm sure you choose to believe the United States will be here happily building things, buying houses, marrying, buying, selling, and entertaining ourselves forever and ever and ever!! In fact, you are so smart that we have to believe you....because the world gave you a Nobel Prize!! I have a feeling that Rome, Greece, Babylon, Persia and all the other once great civilizations rolled our their economists and said, "Quite frankly, it's hard to believe that Babylon would ever default. We are simply too strong for that to happen....wouldn't you agree King Nebuchadnezzar?"

Again, I want to apologize. I will do my best to not let it happen again.

Please,...Be Narrow Minded

We know what Jesus told us, "The path is narrow, so stay on the narrow path. The path to destruction is wide, and many will be on it". So, if we take our eyes off the narrow path of Christ, we may fall off. In the same way, if we start double guessing the words of the bible and making them fit into this world, we are going to be more apt to fall off the narrow path. (Emergent Church philosophies)

So what does the world think of those of us who believe in Jesus Christ as our savior from hell? Obviously they don't think much of us....and their perception of us is only going to get worse. You can see that Conservatives are now in the minority. Liberals are leaping ahead in all the opinion polls. Pretty soon, we may be persecuted if we publicly deny that "climate change" is being caused by mankind's actions. Or we might be fined if our church refuses to marry gays...or refuses to hold "commitment ceremonies" for a woman and her dog, or a man and his sheep....or how about if we refuse to marry a threesome of two women and one man? Where will it all end?

It will end with the rapture of the church! Exactly as the evil in Noah's day ended... with Noah and his family being sealed in the ark and taken (rapture) above the flood of destruction. In the same way, Christ is going to take us above (rapture) the destruction of planet earth during The Tribulation...and only set us back down on this planet after the destruction has we can rule and reign with Him, as his bride, during the entire Millennium.

With that being said, I found a great article that talks about being narrow minded and how important it is to stay that way as the deception on planet earth continues to build.

It turns out that being broad minded or liberal actually just leads in circles. No one reaches a goal of anything lasting or good through liberality or broadmindedness. They just go in silly little circles, are distracted by everything, cause problems to all of mankind, and ‘feel’ quite good about themselves as they progressively grow more delusional.

You can read the entire article here;

Huge Double Standard

"It's so illogical...that it has to be supernatural." We have been saying that a lot lately as the world's common sense seems to have evaporated. The smartest men on earth seem incapable of seeing the most obvious inefficiencies and disparities.

For instance; why do the Muslim's of the world insist that they have to be welcomed, accepted and tolerated in every country that they go....but the muslim countries of the world refuse to accept people of any other religion? Did you know that you can't carry a bible on the official airline of Saudi Arabia? Did you know that Iraq is persecuting it's Christian population and over half the Christians have fled? In Gaza we see the most illogical situation yet...because all eyes of the world are focused on it....yet they can't see. The Christians are being killed and driven out of the territory BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS. But the same Arabs who are running Gaza and approving of this persecution (Hamas) are DEMANDING THAT THEY BE ACCEPTED TO LIVE AND PRACTICE THEIR BELIEFS ALL OVER THE ENTIRE STATE OF ISRAEL.

And the world agrees with that logic!

Since Hamas' rise to power, Christian in Gaza repeatedly have been targeted. Jihadia Salafiya, an Islamist outreach group with a so-called military wing, is suspected of many of the Islamist attacks, such as a May 2007 shooting against a United Nations school in Gaza after it allowed boys and girls to participate in the same sporting event. One person was killed in the attack.

Read this persecution article here;

Where is the outrage by women's rights groups, human rights groups, all Christians of the world? Where is the outrage by the media of this clear double standard? Where is the outrage by our self proclaimed "Christian" president? Oh yeah....Obama is too busy pushing for these folks to have their own they can live is peace, harmony, happiness and unity with all of earth's citizens. In fact, he belives that if we give them half of Jerusalem as their very own capital, then they will turn over a new leaf and finally they can be happy, healthy, productive citizens.

Hat tip to Mike S. for the article.

Yesterday's Rumor--Today's Headline

Yesterday we posted an email from Rosenberg saying he heard credible reports that Obama was talking about making Jerusalem a Palestinian capital. Here is the headline today;
Report: US Promised Jerusalem Will Be Palestine's Capital

PA officials told the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that the US intends to stand by its policy that East Jerusalem should be the Palestinian capital. Obama is expected to roll out the peace plan in Cairo on 4 June.

Read full article here;

Joel Rosenberg has an uncanny ability to write something only to watch it play out the way he wrote. If Jerusalem is split....and it leads to a cataclysmic war (Rosenberg prediction)....could this war be the one prophesied in Psalm 83? If quickly could the war of Ezekiel 38 be following? And finally close is the rapture??

Very Serious Rumor

Many of you probably get emails from Joel Rosenberg, the author of Epicenter and most recently, Inside the Revolution. If you haven't signed up for them, I would highly recommend that you do.

This just came on his Flash Traffic email;

Washington, D.C., May 20, 2009) -- Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has just finished his visit to Washington. Full analysis on my weblog, including a link to the YouTube clip of me on Glenn Beck's show with a former CIA analyst who says he wouldn't care if Israel ceased to exist. That said, there's more troubling news this morning. I'm horrified by credible reports that in his June 4th speech in Cairo, President Obama will say it is time to divide Jerusalem and make the holy city the capital of a Palestinian state.

No, Mr. President, it is not. Jerusalem is and should be the eternal, undivided capital of the Jewish people and the Jewish state. Dividing Jerusalem will not make peace. Rather, it would send a message to every Radical Islamic jihadist around the world that Israel is weak, that the Jews won't even defend the sovereignty of their own capital, that there is "blood in the water," and that it is time to strike Israel and wipe her off the map. Dividing Jerusalem would trigger an apocalyptic war in the Middle East the likes of which the region has never seen.

If ever we have prayed for the peace of Jersualem, please pray really hard right now.

History Repeats

We all know that history has a way of repeating itself...usually every 50-60 years. Why? Probably because the people who first experienced an event are no longer alive 60 years later....and even if they are....the coming generation isn't really interested in their stories because they believe it to be "ancient history". So everyone just walks into the same mistakes....over and over again.

Let's look at Israel in 1967. The country was now 19 yrs old and the hatred of the Arab world had been boiling for the past few decades....stirring the coals to red hot was the remembrance that the Arabs were repelled 19 yrs earlier by a few Jews with some old cars and some old rifles.

Here's what some of the Arab leaders were saying before they invaded Israel;
Gamal Abdel Nasser, the president of Egypt declared on radio" We intend on beginning an all out campaign, it will be a total war and our basic purpose is the eradication of the Israeli state"
Ahmed Shukeiri the head of the Palestinian resistance movement also delivered the following statement" Israelis who were born in Palestine that will still be alive after the war will be allowed to live in Palestine. But based on my best estimation not a single one of them will still be found alive."
King Hussein of Jordan joined the war that began in June of 1967 with the following words," Kill the Jews with everything that comes to your hands. Kill them with your arms, with your hands, with your nails and with your teeth."

Now let's look at what President Ahmadinejad has been saying;
[…] "The existence of the [Zionist] regime is tantamount to the permanent imposition of an unbridled threat, so that none of the Islamic nations and countries of the region can feel secure from its threat. The closer these countries and nations are to the epicenter of this threat, the more insecure they feel. The people of Palestine exist within the context of such a threat. For that reason, they have not spent even a single day with peace of mind and tranquility for at least the past sixty years."
"Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism? You should know that this slogan, this goal, can certainly be achieved. "
"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury."
"The Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time."

So, will the world wake up? Do they really believe this is just chatter? History shows us that many believed that Adolf Hitler was just a jabbering, little corporal with an insecurity complex. But hey....who wants to learn from history? As my kid would say, "History is for old people!"

How Much Longer til "Never Again"?

As we have noted in the past, the holocaust museum in Washington D.C. has the words "Never Again" posted over the entrance. The Jews vowed to never forget that they ignored the fiery talk of Adolf Hitler. They didn't believe anything like that could ever happen in the Germany...because it was so civilized. And before they knew what was happening, the trap was sprung and 6 million Jews were tortured and murdered in some of the most Satanic ways possible. Their skin was turned into leather and used for making shoes and lampshades.

But out of the piles of bones made in the holocaust was birthed the nation of Israel....thereby fulfilling Ezekiel 37, The Valley of Dry Bones.

Immediately following Ezekiel 37 is chapter 38 which talks of Iran (Persia) rising up in the last days and seeking to destroy Israel. And this very day we have Iranian President Ahmadinejad denying the holocaust, telling the world to prepare for the vaporization of Israel, cooking a nuclear weapon...and now another prophetic headline hits the press....
Ahmadinejad: Iran Tests Missile that Could Reach Israel, Europe

You can read all about it here;

Does "Never Again" actually mean something to the Jews of this earth...or is it just a slogan like the one we use in the U.S., "Freedom isn't free"...but no one really means them any more? How much longer can Israel sit and wait....before the trap falls shut again.... when a nuclear warhead placed on the missile described above....goes off in Tel Aviv and kills 6 million Jews.

As the famous saying goes....Fool me once, shame on you.....fool me twice, shame on me.

Is Nothing Sacred?

We all know the Boyscouts have been under attack for the last 5 years by homosexual activists, but I was hoping all those nice, little Girlscouts could stay above the filth and deception engulfing planet earth.....but it appears that isn't going to be the case.

In "Amaze: The Twists and Turns of Getting Along," girls from the sixth to the eighth grade will read a quote from Buddha and be encouraged to explore mazes and stone or dirt labyrinths – symbols rooted in pagan mythology and popular within the New Age movement as meditation tools.
They will be briefly introduced to Polish poet Anna Swir, known for her feminist and erotic poems, and Jane Addams, an ardent feminist and pacifist who received a Nobel Peace Prize.
The text features a quote from Harriet Woods, former president of the National Women's Political Caucus – a bipartisan group that endorses pro-abortion female candidates who run for public office.
To cope with bullying, girls as young as 11 are encouraged to "take a peace break," make a Zen garden, take martial arts, do yoga and visit a website to learn the sun salutation poses.

Read full article here;

It is just so sad when you think of the wholesome Girlscout troops selling cookies. It's certainly only a fond memory now of a day when those Scouts could pray to Jesus and the God of Israel during their meetings. And now everyone will need to think twice before enrolling because I certainly wouldn't want my daughter learning sun-salutation-poses. It's just sad.

Jesus said, "Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three." Luke 12:51

When we get the feeling that it's all coming apart, just remember that Jesus told us all these things must happen...but to encourage each other with the words of scripture...because we know that the night comes before the day (in Hebrew mind)....and if we are anticipating the light of Jesus soon coming for this earth....we know it has to get dark first. So bring on the darkness if it means we are one day closer to Christ.

California Foreshadowing?

OK....let's take a look at California. For some time now, California has been the epitome of the "American dream"....the land where you can truly "have it all". Huge houses, movie stars, Mercedes Benz dealers on every corner, the ocean, the mountains, the Sacramento valley that produces more food than any other place in the world....the state is not called the "Golden State" solely for the reason that there is gold is an amazing place.

So if it's so amazing, why does it seem to be so close to tipping over?

This week, the voters of CA are going to go to the ballots to vote on the budget catastrophe that has fallen on this state. The state seems to be upside down on just about everything it has touched. And with the latest bust of the stock market, housing market and employment market...their income is fast dwindling at the very time that calls for government help are increasing exponentially.

If you took their problems and put them in human form, it would be similar to a man making $50,000 in salary, but he owes $500,000 on a home now worth $300,000 he owes $30,000 on a car now worth $10,000, and he owes $50,000 on credit cards and now his salary is being cut to $30,000. It doesn't take much common sense to realize that a man like this is in deep financial trouble. Is anyone going to borrow this man more money? Does he seem like he would be a good risk? If he printed IOU's on paper, would you buy one? Probably not.

I saw this fact in an article I was reading and couldn't help but wonder if CA isn't reaping what it had sewn;
BEACH BUMS - 9 of the 10 largest lenders of the nearly $1 trillion of sub prime mortgages originated nationwide during the 2-years of 2005-06 are based in California (source: Center for Public Integrity).

So maybe CA was the epicenter of greed where the fraudulent mortgage practices were focused? Also, if one takes into account that CA is the center of the porn industry, has Hollywood dishing out disgusting trash masquerading as entertainment, has San Francisco which is the center of homosexuality, and also has one of the largest populations of citizens who are dependent on Government makes one wonder?.... Is CA representative of the entire country?

Now today, the headlines are about the CA earthquake, and last week it was about the out of control wild-fires and the year before that it was mudslides and drought... and it makes you wonder if CA is a place where God is withdrawing His hand of protection? Is CA soon going to collapse and crumble because the state has totally ignored God's word? Is he showing us that the "American dream" is truly a nightmare? Is the financial and physical pain going to keep spreading across this whole country?

If it does, let's remember to "Praise Him in the storm", because many people will be drawn to Him when everything does come apart. When the god of Mammon is destroyed, the pain of Mammon worshipers will be great....but maybe then we can finally see the One True God.

Tone it Down, Israel!

We realize there are always two sides to every story and that while Obama may love to tell Iran to "tone down the rhetoric on Israel!".....he can't, for various reasons. So he has to tell Israel to tone down the rhetoric regarding the danger of Iran.

Let's review; we know that Iran is saying the Holocaust never existed, we know that Iran's Ahmadinejad has told the world to prepare itself for a day when the U.S. and Israel won't exist, we know he believes that global chaos would be a good thing because it will bring back the 12th Imam to kill the Jews and Christians, and we know that everytime the world invites him to speak he lambasts the Jews and invites us all to pray to Allah for the soon return of the 12th Imam.

Now let's look at some recent comments by Iran's military;
"The truth is that Israel does not have the courage to attack us. If we are subjected to any attack by Israel, I do not think we will need more than 11 days to wipe Israel out of existence."

Read full article here;

The world seems to be coming more in line everyday with what the bible said would happen; "In the Last days, the right will be wrong and the wrong will be right." If ever a time that common sense seemed to be in rapid decline and logic seems thrown out the window....that time is now.

Remember to pray daily for the meetings between Netanyahu and Obama and also remember to pray for Iran, as Ahmadinejad is up for re-election in less than a month.
