Worshiping Wealth

We believe it would be fairly obvious to even a casual observer, that America has bought into "the American dream"...but it has come at the expense of obeying Godly rules and biblical principles. We would not be the first society to fall into this earthly trap....but could we be the last?

Remember that patterns that the Israelites succumbed to. God told them to go settle in Canaan but told them not to be seduced by the lifestyle of the people they were overthrowing. But within a few years, they had married the foreign women, were enjoying their prostitutes and were even worshiping their gods. We might have read that story in Sunday school and said to ourselves, "those silly could they have been so disobedient?" But let's have a look in the mirror!

God told us that as Christians, we were not supposed to fall into step with the patterns of this world. We were supposed to work for the kingdom and snatch people from the fire. Instead, we HAVE fallen in love with this world and have forgotten our eternal home. And to make matters worse, we have started worshiping the god of Mammon.

If God punished the ancient Jews for disobedience and lack of faith....what is coming for us?

While Prosperity Theology tends to be more associated with the charismatic segment of North American Christianity, it could be said that virtually all of North American Christianity has been infected with its influences. This perspective co-exists comfortably with the ideology of the American Dream. For centuries the “Christian nation” of America has been a land of opportunity, espousing upward mobility and success for all who seek it.

Every single false teaching or heresy mentioned in the New Testament epistles was associated with greed or an inordinate affection with money and wealth. This is evident today as it was then. If anything is different, it is that some of these heretical perspectives have become much more systemized than they were in New Testament times.

Read this article here by Wilfred Hahn.
Wilfred is a leading prophetic writer on the false god of wealth and how our worhip of Mammon is tying into the Last Days that many believe we are in.

The Rest of the Story

As the world literally screams at the Jews in Israel for their treatment of the Palestinians in Gaza, it's important to remember that Egypt had control of that little strip of land for 19 years before Israel got control of it.

So how do you think the Egyptian-Muslims treated their cousins in Gaza? I doubt you will have to think long about the answer.

For nearly 19 years, the inhabitants of the Strip were prohibited from leaving their homes from 9 p.m. until dawn on pain of death. This curfew was enforced by roadblocks. Men between 18 and 40 were prohibited from traveling to Egypt unless they were fortunate enough to secure permits. If they failed to return at the expiration of their permit, the military authorities took steps against their families.

If you read nothing else, please read this quote which gives the reason WHY the Arab states haven't solved the Palestinian refugee problem;

Ralph Galloway, an UNRWA official who quit in frustration, observed bitterly: "The Arab states don't want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders don't give a damn whether the refugees live or die."

Read article here;

Maybe Obama, while speaking in Egypt, should have reminded the Egyptians of their miserable history of dealing with Gaza....maybe he should have pushed for the Arabs to solve the problem and take on the refugees so they can all get on with living? But maybe the world has learned to lie about the facts because we are so scared to offend the Muslims....cuz Lord knows we don't want any more angry Muslims protesting in the streets! Let's just give them a sucker so they'll shut up!

Pray the God will open the eyes of the world so they can see that this problem is not a Jewish one caused by Israel.....but an Arab problem caused by hatred of just about everybody.

"He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."....says God. Genesis 16:12

No You Can't!

Obama's campaign slogan was "Yes we can!" Some protesters in Israel are saying the opposite as they blanch against Obama telling them what must happen in their country. Man, this guy acts like he is king of the world! More foreshadowing of the anti-christ.

"Mr. Obama, we started demonstrating 16 years ago," said Rabbi Shalom Gold, the founder of Kehillat Zichron Ya'acov in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood, alluding to the early days of the Oslo Accords. "You were in your '30s and you probably didn't know the first thing about Eretz Yisrael... but we're part of God's divine plan, we're here and we're staying here!"
"Be a friend of Israel, but even if you won't be, we have the greatest ally in the world," he said, pointing to the heavens.

Read full article here;

If you view the article above, you will see a picture-poster that the protesters were carrying. It's a picture of Ahmadinejad shaking hands with Obama while a nuclear mushroom cloud forms in the background. The poster says, "Yes we can!"

Remember, Israel is a secular nation. Very few are in the country are religious and plugged into understanding the Jew and Israel in God's eternal plan. So when the Rabbi above says, "but we are part of God's divine plan!"....the rest of the country has no clue what he is talking about and I'm sure these protesters were dismissed as lunatics.

This could be more foreshadowing of what is coming for secular America. As Christians quote the bible as a reason to be pro-life....we are dismissed as lunatics. As preachers tell parishioners to "repent or die!"....they are dismissed as lunatics. And when you talk about the rapture of the church and quote the bible, "one will be taken the other one left"....we are dismissed as lunatics.

Who's Afraid of 2012?

If you do a search on this blog for 2012, you will discover that we have written about it in the past. Lot's of strange things from lots of diverse places are being predicted. Of course, followers of Christ and avid bible readers know that "no one will know the day or the hour", so in no way, shape or form am I believing that any of this 2012 chatter is from the bible. I do believe it is all coming from the "father of all lies," who loves to sew seeds of fear, doubt and confusion.

Also, it would be possible that Satan realizes that we in the season of the Day of the Lord (which commences with the rapture of the church) so he is preparing all sorts of deceptive plans and will choose the one that fits best based on when the rapture occurs. For example...if the rapture happened yesterday, he might point to the crop circles and alien sites and have the anti-christ tell the left-behind world that Christians were all taken by the "aliens" for reprograming.

If the rapture happens in 2012, he might point to the Mayan calendar and have the anti-christ tell the world that Chezachotal (the feathered serpent god) took all the Christians because they failed to believe in the Mayan's god return.

If it happens in 2011, he may point to the increasing solar storms and tell the world we were all beamed into some strange portal by some incredible solar storm.

If it happens in 2010, he might point to the world's preparation for the return of Maitreya, and say that Maitreya took some people to teach them the secrets of the universe.

You get the idea.

So this article that appeared in the Star Tribune this past week is very interesting to me. It's headline is WHO'S AFRAID OF 2012?

Check out what this professor had to say when asked why people worry about the apocolypse;

"It's fear of death," said Harvey Sarles, professor of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Minnesota. Doomsday anxiety goes way back. It's a product of Western thought and religious tradition, he said -- basically, the stories of Christianity and Islam and the focus on death and getting back to heaven."

And how about this paragraph that talks of us Christians hoping to soon be a pile of clothes;

Indeed, cataclysm and destruction predictions fit well with some Christian interpretations of the Bible's Book of Revelation, according to Sarles. The current financial upheaval, natural disasters, flu epidemic -- even the disappearance of honeybees -- are seen as runups to the main 2012 event, according to some Christian websites. They see the four horsemen of the apocalypse closing in, and they welcome it. The second coming of Christ is near, they believe, and they'll soon be a pile of clothes on empty shoes after they're Raptured.

Read full article here;

So the author doesn't quite get what we Christians are watching for and why we are watching. But one thing for sure, the author will be VERY surprised, confused and sorry when in fact, "two men are standing in a field. One is taken, the other is left."

Cairo Speech

At my first glance through Obama's speech delivered today....I could not find any reference calling for the division of Jerusalem to be used as a Palestinian capital. That's pretty good news for those of us Americans who would like to avoid being on the wrong side of God.

So I am not going to rip apart his speech too much. He did have some good statements and he had some pretty stupid ones. Here is a good one;

America's strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.

In the above paragraph, he gives a backhand to Ahmadinejad and those who deny the Holocaust. He also announces that we will stand with Israel and the bond is unbreakable. That's good...if he means it.

Here's a stupid one;

I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons that others do not. No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons. That is why I strongly reaffirmed America's commitment to seek a world in which no nations hold nuclear weapons.

"Yes, and if I am elected Miss America I promise to stop global hunger and make sure no dogs are ever killed at any humane society." Come on you truly believe that America is going to spend a lot of time, effort and money to get rid of all nukes?

Here is another stupid one;

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today. People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind, heart, and soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it is being challenged in many different ways.

Yeah, right. Everywhere Islam went, it killed the inhabitants and took over. Read your history books of what happened to all the Christians in the middle east once Muhammad got on a roll.

And just two more stupid comments;

And when the first Muslim-American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers – Thomas Jefferson – kept in his personal library.

Mr. Obama....Jefferson had the Koran in his library because he wanted to study his enemies before he went and attacked the Muslim pirates on the Barbary coast.....he CERTAINLY was not reading it as a holy book....that's a fact.

Potentially the most damaging to this Christian nation, spoken by a self proclaimed Christian President on Muslim land is this;

All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (peace be upon them) joined in prayer.

We need to pray for our president, because if he claims to be a Christian but believes that Moses, Muhammad and Jesus joined in prayer according to some made up story that is NO WHERE in his Christian bible....we may all be held accountable.

Oops...I just realized I said I wasn't going to rip his speech...and now I realized that I pretty much did.

Obama Not a Messiah

The Jews of Israel are joining a lot of us who are beginning to wonder if Obama may believe he is a messiah...any how many people around the world may also believe this? Check this out...especially the bold print;

CAIRO – A messiah won’t be landing at the Heliopolis airport Thursday. Nonetheless, the expectations raised by Obama’s brief visit to Cairo are almost messianic. Souvenir shops are selling pendants with the caption “Obama – new Tutankhamen of the world.” In Egyptian terms, it’s a super-compliment. No one-hour speech can fulfill such expectations; neither can a two-hour speech.

This article concludes with these words;

Obama’s speech is like the opening tune of a play that has not yet been written. The question is what will happen in Washington later on, and whether we will indeed see the formulation of a plan that would be able to bring together all the anti-Iranian and pro-American powers in the region, including Israel, into one coalition; such coalition would aim to secure regional stability – curbing Iran, saving Iraq and Afghanistan, and a regional Arab-Israeli peace deal.

Read article here;,7340,L-3725495,00.html

Did you catch that sentence I highlighted in bold? To those of us who KNOW the bible is God's prophetic word which was written before the foundations of the world....we KNOW the play already has been written. And we know how it ends....with the Tribulation of planet earth that will commence with a peace agreement between Israel and their Arab/Muslim enemies, brokered by the anti-christ. At the end of this Tribulation, Jesus WILL return and vanquish Satan....and set the world right for a thousand years. Read it for yourselves....and watch for yourselves how this play is coming together right before our very eyes.

Only a messiah would be able to secure all these objectives in the course of one term in office.

Obama vs. Osama

As we all know by now, President Obama is in the middle east and is going to give a major speech to the Muslim world. Obama seems to be more convinced everyday that his charm and charisma are going to work wonders with everyone he meets, everywhere he goes. That would be nice for the world if charming men with good intentions could run things in charitable, humanitarian ways.....but Osama Bin Laden will have none of it.

So the showdown may soon be coming between one of the nicest Presidents the U.S. has known (Also know as "the messiah" and/or "the one") and one of Satan's most nasty spawns. (Osama) Who will the Muslim world side with? Who will they believe?

Cairo - Audiotapes attributed to Al Qaeda's two top leaders have sought to discredit President Obama on the eve of his much-heralded speech to the Muslim world in Cairo, declaring that he is no different from his predecessor and follows the same anti-Muslim policies.

Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden accused Obama of "antagonizing Muslims" and of "laying the foundation for long wars," said the Qatar-based TV channel Al Jazeera, which aired excerpts of the tape shortly after the American president arrived in Saudi Arabia.

A day earlier, Mr. bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged Muslims not to heed Obama's "elegant" words, arguing that Obama's policies are already clear.

Read full article here;

Dang it!! I was hopeful that Osama was going to travel to Egypt to sing Kum-ba-yah and drink sweet tea with Obama. Can't those Muslim extremists get along with anyone!! Why aren't they more tolerant of others?! Why do they seem intent on taking their religious beliefs so seriously?? Why can't they be more lukewarm and tolerant of all beliefs....just like all of us U.S. Christians?

Earth's Final Century

Check out what ABC is broadcasting tonight for 2 hours;

'Earth 2100': the Final Century of Civilization?

It's an idea that most of us would rather not face -- that within the next century, life as we know it could come to an end. Our civilization could crumble, leaving only traces of modern human existence behind.

Read full article here;

As we have said, the people of planet earth know something big is going on...they simply don't know their bibles well enought to interpret these happenings through the "3rd lens of scripture".

Strange Signs Coming From the Skies

Most of you have heard me reference Genesis 6, which is story of Noah and the flood. However, a careful reading will show you that the passage makes a reference for the reason God may have destroyed all flesh. The bible tells us that "sons of God"(fallen angels) were taking women and having sex with them. The resultant hybrid beings were called the Nephilim. Some were giants. The bible goes on to say that the Nephilim were on the earth immediately after the flood as well. They are also referenced in Numbers when Joshua and the spies were sent out to scout the Holy Land.

When Jesus was on earth, he told us that the very last days of this age, right before his return, would be "as it was in the days of Noah". What could that mean? Could it mean that these fallen angels are making appearances again and making strange flesh in an attempt to usurp God's plan and decieve mankind?? Afterall, we are clearly told that Satan is the great deciever.

Look at the evidence yourselves and you tell me.

That being said, the "alien" UFO sightings, crop circle reports and abduction stories are increasing exponentially around the world. Major countries like France and Mexico are releasing top secret UFO reports and videos and the world is now being fully prepared to accept the idea that alien life forms are soon going to come to planet earth and help us out of the mess that humans have created on planet earth.

As we have asked in the past....if "alien" beings showed up tomorrow and landed on the white house lawn and spoke into a CNN camera and told us "The Truth" about where we came from, why we were put on planet earth, and what they are going to do to save us, and also told us the "rest of the story" in regards to Jesus, Allah, Budda, Muhammad and all the other "holy" men....would our faith in Jesus stand? Or would we be rocked to the core and maybe even have the "elect decieved" Jesus warns.

Check out these paragraphs from an "alien sight";

Traces of this epic masterpiece of creation can be found in all religious writings and traditions. It is to them that Moses, Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed referred. It is now time to welcome them.

"We were the ones who designed all life on earth""You mistook us for gods" "We were at the origin of your main religions" "Now that you are mature enough to understand this,we would like to enter official contact through an embassy"

The messages dictated to Rael explain that life on Earth is not the result of random evolution, nor the work of a supernatural 'God'. It is a deliberate creation, using DNA, by a scientifically advanced people who made human beings literally "in their image"

You can check out this site for yourselves;

This is NOT something to be taken lightly. The greatest deception to come on mankind could literally be at our doorstep. Have we studied the word of God? Have we studied our enemie's battle plans? Have we fastened on our helmets of salvation? Have we put on the full armor of God? Do we have our swords of Truth sharpened and ready to do battle with whatever Satan throws at us?

Or, on the contrary...have we bought into the lie that satan doesn't exist, science knows all things we need to know, there isn't really a spiritual battle raging, and "fallen angels" (demons) are something only for Hollywood and should be put in the same realm as "the tooth fairy"?

I don't like to be the purveyor of supernatural doom, but I honestly belive that "something wicked this way comes"...and it may be soon.

Pray for clear eyes, open ears and pure hearts.

Powder Keg of Unrest

As we have said, many people from all around the world from all different walks of life, know that something big is going on....they just don't know what it is or what might be causing it. But whatever it is leading to social unrest....which is always a precursor to war.

LONDON (AFP) — The world is sitting on a "powder keg" of social unrest, which risks exploding as human rights are eroded by the global economic slowdown, Amnesty International warned.

As well as national and regional problems, Amnesty also highlighted wider global problems, including food shortages which leave one billion people hungry or malnourished.
Growing unemployment, as the global economic suddenly contracts after a prolonged boom in many of the richest countries in the world, only adds to the crisis.

Read full article here;

To me and many, it appears obvious that things aren't looking so good for planet earth. Mankind seems to be at his wits end to fix the mounting problems that all seem to be happening at once.

Some have asked why I post all this dire news about floods, earthquakes, death, wars, etc... They want to know why I don't post about all the happy, positive things that are happening on planet earth and try to have some balance.

My first response is that Jesus told us to "watch" for a certain set and series of events. And if we claim to be followers of Jesus....we should be obedient to carefully do as he says. This will help to keep us on the narrow path, that so few will be on.

So, if Jesus had told us to watch for new sports stadiums being built, national health care being constructed, all sorts of life improving technologies, justice increasing all over the world, life expectancy increases, etc.... I would certainly be posting those items.

But obviously, that's not what Jesus said. He said to watch for wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, strange things in the skies, famines, pestilence and most important....keep your eye on Israel and Jerusalem. And friends, I don't think believe this is a drill. I believe it's the real thing and that some day soon, "Two men will be standing in a field. One will be taken one will be left".

What an exciting time if you know you will be the one taken....and what a terrifying time is coming for those who will be left behind. This should excite us, quicken our spirits and also give us an extreme sense of urgency to snatch people from the fire. That's what prophecy does! So let's all be about the Master's work. It will go well for us if the Master finds us working when he returns.

Aliens Are Our Brothers

According to the chief astronomer of the Catholic church, if their are intelligent creatures from other planets, they would all be created by God....hence they would all be our brothers. What????

“Just as we consider earthly creatures as 'a brother,' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extra-terrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation,” said Funes. “Thinking otherwise would be like ‘putting limits’ on God’s omnipotence.”

Read short article here;

So Mr. Astronomer...a few questions please....Is Lucifer a created being of God? Likewise are demons created beings of God?? And finally, are the angels who rebelled with Lucifer created beings of God?? If you answer yes to those questions....then do you believe it would be a good thing to call Satan, his demons and all the fallen angels, our "brothers"? And finally...what if Satan (disguised as an angel of light and called the "Prince of the air") showed up on planet earth with a bunch of his fallen angels and they were all masquerading as nice, brotherly beings from the far distant planet call Nirubu....would you simply believe all that they were saying...even when it flat out contradicts the Word of God?

"The road to destruction is wide...and many will be on it. The road to life is narrow. Stay on the narrow road."

Big Brother is Coming!

Ripped right from the files of, "You can't make this up!" comes the latest assault of Government intervention. It appears that questionnaires are being sent to select U.S. households that ask some highly personal and sensitive questions.

The 2009 American Community Survey, an annual supplement to the decennial Census, asks about residents' personal relationships and whether a home has hot and cold running water, a flush toilet, bathing facilities, appliances and phone services. It also asks how many rooms are in a home and what vehicles are used at each household.
The new questionnaire asks respondents what they pay for electricity, gas, water and sewer every month and whether residents receive food stamps.

And lest you be tempted to simply throw it in the trash and say, "I ain't telling Obama a dang thing!" should know that such behavior may have a cost attached to it;

While many recipients may consider the questionnaire to be tedious and meddling, the Census Bureau warns that citizens are required by law to complete it and may be fined as much as $5,000 for willfully refusing. While an individual may feel uneasy about answering each question truthfully, the fine for filing false information can be as much as $500.

Read full article here;

Does anyone else feel like this has all come upon us like a flood? It seems like just a few years ago we were all building our dream homes, leasing our new SUV's and planning our Mexican cruises....and now we are wondering if America (as we have known it) is even going to be recognizable?

Israel Prepares for War

The enemies of Israel seem to be gathering strength. The rumors are building, and now even somewhat moderate Jordan has said that a major war in the middle east is coming if there is not a Palestinian state in the next 12-18 months. Is that a threat or just an observation? We wonder.

So today Israel is having the largest civil defense drill in it's history.

Amid growing tensions with Iran, Israel is training soldiers, emergency crews, and civilians for the possibility of all-out war.

The crisis Israel fears is a massive rocket and missile barrage on all fronts: from Iran in the East, to Syria and Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas in the North, to the Palestinian militant group Hamas on Israel's southern border in the Gaza Strip.

Read full article here;

Now please pull out your bibles and read Psalm 83 starting with verse 6; "With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you--the tents of Edom (Jordanian-palestinians living in refugee tents?) and the Ishmaelite (Arabs south of Jordan in Saudi Arabia), of Moab (Southern Jordan?) and the Hagrites, (Arabs east of Jordan River)Gebal, (Northern Lebanon) Ammon, (Now the capital of Jordan) and Amelek,(Arabs on Israeli-Egyptian border) Philistia,(Arabs in Gaza-Hamas) with the people of Tyre. (Lebanon-Hezbollah) Even Assyria (Now present day Syria and parts of Iraq) has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot."

Now pull out your maps. You will quickly discover that the Psalmist has named all the people groups that currently describe the Arabs living along the border of present day Israel. Coincidence? We guess you will have to decide. We don't think it is.

Bill Sallus wrote a book called ISRAELSTINE (I highly recommend it) that spells all this out in detail. Many watchers believe that Psalm 83 may be a precursor to the War of Ezekiel spelled out in Chapter 38. By the way...none of the people groups mentioned in Psalm 83 are mentioned in Ezekiel 38. Could that be because verse 17 of Psalm 83 says, "May the ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace."

Amazing Things

Most of you are familiar with the author Joel Rosenberg. In his latest book, INSIDE THE REVOLUTION, (which I highly recommend) Joel first talks about the terrifying things that are happening inside radical Islam. But the book finishes with descriptions of the amazing things that are also happening inside Islam.

In 2007, he was invited to speak at a conference of 200 born-again Christian Muslims taking place at a secret location in the middle east. The new Christian leaders were from Iran, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and other Islamic countries. These guys are literally on the front line of the Satanic-spiritual battle that is currently raging on planet earth. Sadly, most of us in America are totally blind and ignorant of this battle...probably because we have fallen asleep, surrounded by the blessings and security that God has provided this country.

Check out this paragraph from page 471-472;
What made the conference particularly remarkable for me, however, was not simply learning from these dear revivalist leaders but also seeing their eagerness for Jesus Christ to return to earth and set up His Kingdom, and their hunger to understand what the Bible teaches about the end of days. All of them believed without a doubt that they were living in the last days before the return of Christ. But few of them had ever had any in-depth teaching on biblical eschatology, or end times theology. (emphasis mine)

God is doing amazing things right in the heart of Satan's territory!! These brothers simply know what Paul promised us in Thessalonians, "But you brothers, are not children of the darkness that this day (rapture) should surprise you."

So I ask again....why are most believers in America apathetic and complacent to the amazing things that God is doing? Why do most of us know the winner of American Idol but don't know the what the Word of God is saying? How much longer until God says, "Enough!"
