U.S. Rebukes Israel

Uh-oh...I don't like the sound of this headline as it may increase the speed of U.S. demise.

Let's review; After WWII, Great Britain was given a mandate to set up a Jewish state. But because of back room settlements and rampant anti-semitism, they ended up giving 70% of what was to be Jewish land to the Arabs. That land is now called the country of Jordan.

So Israel is left with a teeny-tiny, narrow strip of property which is only a fraction of what it was supposed to receive....and still the world is raging against her right to have even that property.

And now the U.S. is joining in the chorus of global-accusers that claim they have the right to tell Israel what do with it's tiny bit of land.

WASHINGTON — Alarmed by Israeli plans to build new housing units in settlements and dimming prospects for American peace efforts, the Obama administration on Friday put out a rare and harsh public rebuke of its main Mideast ally.

The White House said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's settlement plans were "inconsistent" with commitments the Jewish state has made previously and harmful to U.S. attempts to lay the groundwork for a resumption in peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement expansion and we urge that it stop," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement. "We are working to create a climate in which negotiations can take place, and such actions make it harder to create such a climate."

Convert of Die

We should all be aware by now that persecution of Christians is growing. We know Satan's pattern...first persecute the Jews, then come for the bible-believing Christians.

This headline just arrived out of Pakistan;

Six Christians Shot Dead by Islamic Militants in Pakistan

Quetta: August 31, 2009. (PCP report) The Islamic extremists gunned down 6 Christians and injured 7 more in Quetta city of Baluchistan on August 28, 2009, after threats of “Convert to Islam or Die”

The sources told PCP that Christians were receiving threats from Islamic militants to convert to Islam or Die letters and calls from months which resulted in killing.

Read article here;

We know this is yet one more sign that we may be in the very Last Days because Jesus told us about the future, "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me." Matthew 24:9

Of course Christians have been persecuted since Christ was on what's different about this outbreak?? Israel is back in the Promised land and is giving the world fits, nations are rising against nations, earthquakes are rapidly increasing in frequency, famines are following drought and war as we speak, diseases are breaking out and strange signs are appearing in the skies.

"Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it (He) is near, right at the door." Matthew 24:33

Lastly, I always have to ask myself a serious question....If Muslim militants came to my house or business (as just happened to these dead guys) and told me to renounce the name of Christ or you will be killed and your corpse cut into pieces and dragged around by dirtbikes....would I have the faith to stand firm or would I cower in fear and beg for my life and tell the militants anything they wanted to hear...just so I could live?

2012...The End of the World?

Yes...our antennae have been up for quite some time concerning all the chatter from various sources describing potential cataclysm coming in the year 2012. You can use the search engine on this blog and put in "2012" and see what postings come up.

As expected, we are not the only prophecy watchers who have noticed all the grim possibilities that are heading our way in 2-3 years.

Jack Kelley is a very well respected name in prophecy and he just posted a 2012 article on the Rapture Ready website. I believe it merits reading.

One paragraph I do want to point out speaks of the Nephilim while discussing the Mayans...

Below are some modern confirmations that will demonstrate how startlingly accurate the Mayans were. They lend more credibility to the view that the influence of the Nephilim with their supernatural knowledge might have been much more widespread than previously thought. Hints of their meddling can be seen world wide.

Read full article here;

For new readers who have never heard the word "Nephilim"...I will refer you to Genesis 6 and you will notice that they were on the earth BEFORE the flood of Noah....and also afterward. Also remember that "sons of God" is referring to angelic beings...which are all created beings as opposed to humans which are "beget" through human mating.

Mainstreaming Demons

Many of you know that we believe the increased sightings of UFO's, the huge increase in Hollywood movies about "aliens" and the huge percentage increase of people who believe in "aliens"....are all signs that Satan has been hard at work deceiving people and preparing them for a day when they will accept "aliens" as teachers and possible saviors of the human race.

For those who are new readers of this blog....I will ask a simple question; Do you believe in angels? If you said "yes", then by definition you believe in "aliens". Because, obviously, angels are not of the human race, they do have intelligence, and they are capable of entering and exiting our three dimensional world.

So now I ask a second question; Do you believe the bible when it says that 1/3 of the angelic beings followed Lucifer in his rebellion? If you said "yes" to this then, by default, you have to believe that 1/3 of those "alien" creatures (fallen angels) are up to no good and are constantly trying to lead people away from Christ and towards deception, lies and ultimate destruction...just as the bible says.

With that as a quick backdrop...I now give you this top headline from today on Reuters News;

Japan's new first lady says rode UFO to Venus

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's next prime minister might be nicknamed "the alien," but it's his wife who claims to have had a close encounter with another world.
"While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus," Miyuki Hatoyama, the wife of premier-in-waiting Yukio Hatoyama, wrote in a book published last year.
"It was a very beautiful place and it was really green."

Read article here;

So now we have U.S. astronauts, prime ministers, U.S. governors and 80% of Americans believing that these creatures are actually coming from other planets....and most of those believe these "aliens" are actually going to be helpful to the human race.

Let's remember what Apostle Paul told Timothy; "The Spirit clearly says that in later times (Last Days) some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."

If these demons do climb out of a "space ship" sometime soon on planet earth and claim that they are here to explain how humans were put on earth and that they have now come to help us and then go on to lead many away from faith in Christ by performing signs and wonders...practically the entire world will fall for it....hook, line and sinker.

Hat tip to Eric S. for hopping on this headline right away.

Chemicals Pointed at Israel

A few years ago it was revealed that Syria had an explosion that was linked to their development of chemical weapons. I remember what an Israeli General said when he was given the report. He said that if there was even one dead dog found in northern Israel that was the result of chemicals being unleashed by Syria...that Syria would be "gone". I then remember the passage in Isaiah 17.

According to this news article, Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon, is also playing with chemicals....while vowing to destroy Israel.

Read article here;

Let me give you a possible scenario; Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities. Not only does Iran respond with missile attacks on Israel, but so does Syria, and Hezbollah on the southern border of Lebanon, and also Hamas throwing rocks and small missiles out of Gaza. So Israel is faced with a war coming at them from at least four directions. The enemies of Israel may begin to wrongly conclude that "this is the day to destroy Israel!" And they start screwing chemical warheads onto their missiles coming out of Damascus and/or Lebanon. At which point Israeli intelligence gets this info and immediately dispatch a nuclear bomber jet up the road to Damascus.....and silence them once and for all....fulfilling Isaiah 17.

The enemies of Israel all watch the mushroom cloud in stunned disbelief and realize that the Jews are serious when they say "never again". Israel then seizes on the moment of shock and quickly move into the enemy territory and destroy all militants on their immediate borders. This then fulfills Psalm 83.

Iran draws a temporary cease fire with the urging of the UN. And we then enter into a period where Israel can say, "peace and safety" they are in Ezekiel 38....right before a huge coalition led by Russia and joined by Iran, Turkey, Libya and others, get the evil thought to invade Israel....and are destroyed by God himself.

Keep in mind....I am not saying that it HAS to happen this way. I just put it out there as a possible scenario.

So when would the rapture happen in all this? I hope it happens today....but if Jesus should tarry...we might be left here to witness Isaiah 17 and possibly even Psalm 83....but I have my doubts that we will be here to witness Ezekiel 38. Why?? Because by the time Ezekiel 38 happens....God will have turned his personal attention back to Israel....which would mean the "fullness of the gentiles" had been completed....which means the rapture of the church has already happened.

Keep praying, "Thy Kingdom come"...

Good Quote

I recieved this quote today from a friend. Our elected officials in D.C. would do well to read this, memorize it and then act on it.

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Adrian Rogers, 1931

Iranian Good News-Bad News

Today in the Wall Street Journal there is a little blurb under WORLD WATCH on page A10. It is titled, NUCLEAR NEGOTIATOR SAYS TEHRAN IS READY FOR TALKS. The blurb goes onto say that Iran has offered an opening for possible compromise with the West, and is ready to hold talks with world powers over it's nuclear program.

Sounds like great news! Maybe Israel can call off it's nuclear subs and cancel it's fighter jets from pounding Iran!

However, the end of the blurb goes on to say that Iranian leaders continue to send messages of defiance to the world community. They decided to affirm the nomination of a new defense minister who was a choice of Ahmadinejad.

Turns out this guy is wanted by the government of Argentina for the bombing of a Jewish community center in 1994 that killed 85 people...mostly Jews.

So the bad news is that a known mass murderer of Jews will be Iran's new minister of defense.

That leaves a the good news better than the bad news is bad?

Obama to Captivate our Kids

I heard rumors from a friend yesterday that Obama is going to do a TV broadcast that will be piped into every public school room next week. This move is unprecedented and, as another blogger reports, loaded with the opportunities for mischief.

Rather than me waxing on about this, I am going to cut a paste what another blogger has already written.
by Bryan Fischer
In what is likely to be an exercise in nation-wide indoctrination, Pres. Obama apparently intends to deliver a speech to a captive audience next week – every public school student in America. The plan, evidently, is for the speech to be piped into classrooms all across the fruited plane.

The capacity for mischief here is enormous. The president will have moldable minds, being led by enraptured teacher-acolytes, at his disposal. What better time to urge them to tell their folks to support health care reform, or his cap and trade taxapalooza?

Of course, these will be presented quite benignly: “Do you want every child in America to have good health care? Me too! So here’s what I need you to do...” Or, “Do you want to protect the beauty of our planet? So do I! So here’s what I want you to do...” Students – and their parents – won’t even know what hit them.

The guide that the Department of Education is sending out to teachers instructs them to direct their students to take notes, and in particular write down the answers to these questions:

What is the President trying to tell me? (That the planet is warming? That health care in America is a disaster?

What is the President asking me to do? (Tell my parents to support health care reform?)

What new ideas or actions is the President challenging me to think about? (New as compared to the ideas I’m getting from my parents, and new compared to the actions my parents want me to take? If they are “new”, this means they haven’t learned them yet from their folks.)

Then, after they have dutifully taken notes, the students are to gather in little clusters of mind-numbed gobots and discuss answers to the following questions:

What do you think the President wants us to do? (Tell our parents to support health care for everybody!)

Does the speech make you want to do anything? (Yes! Be a good Democrat instead of a wascally Republican when I grow up!)

Are we able to do what President Obama is asking of us? (Yes We Can! Gag me.)

Unless we get public assurances from the White House that the president won’t address health care or global warming or the homosexual agenda (under the color of “human rights for people different than us”) this might be a great time for parents to exercise their opt-out authority and give their students a biography of George Washington to read while the President turns the minds of an entire generation to mush.


I agree that any of us with children in public schools should ask our schools what Obama is going to talk about....and if your child's teacher happens to be wearing an Obama button and a T-shirt that says, "Yes we can!"....we may not want to subject our kids to a morning of unchallenged, unbalanced, "OBA-MANIA". Maybe we should think about the "opt-out" option.

Korean Good News?

The tension between North and South Korea seems to be subsiding....and that may be great news for the world. No one wants a major war to break out on the Korean Peninsula.

The border between the two has been reopened for business purposes as the South has factories in the North.

Also, Kim Jong Il (aka; Gopher in a pant suit) is saying he wants to sign a peace treaty with the U.S. Well....isn't that special?!

“We can ease tensions and remove the danger of war on the peninsula when the United States abandons its hostile policy and signs a peace treaty with us,” Mr. Kim said in a commentary carried on Pyongyang Radio, which broadcasts North Korean government statements abroad.

Washington has said that negotiating a peace treaty with Pyongyang is possible only as part of a broader process that addresses the North’s nuclear disarmament. North Korea conducted its second nuclear test in May, and there is a growing suspicion among analysts in Seoul that the North is trying to win diplomatic recognition from Washington while also being accepted as a nuclear power.

The United States headed the United Nations forces that fought on South Korea’s behalf during the Korean War and afterward signed the truce. North Korea has tried for years to drag various American administrations into peace talks while arguing that it was building nuclear weapons because of Washington’s “hostile policies.”

Deny the Holocaust

Anti-Semitism has many faces and denying the holocaust is one of them.

It should come as no surprise that the government ruling the Gaza strip, Hamas, has refused any textbooks that mention the historical fact of the holocaust.

Gaza's ruling Islamist movement Hamas has resisted suggestions that Palestinian children should be taught about the Holocaust in UN-run schools.

The head of its education committee in Gaza, Abdul Rahman el-Jamal, told the BBC that the Holocaust was a "big lie".

He said that to teach it would be to "grant a big favour" to Israel, which has been fighting Hamas for years.

The UN, which runs most Gazan schools, recently asked local groups whether the Holocaust should be taught.

Read article here;

We were reminded of General Eisenhower's quote as we read this article. Upon viewing the concentration camps, he had this to say;

The things I saw beggar description...The visual evidence and the verbal testimony of starvation, cruelty and bestiality were...overpowering...I made the visit deliberately in order to be in a position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to 'propaganda.'

It appears that the future that he feared has already arrived.

Israel, Iran and Obama

The above posting title is actually the headline in today's Wall Street Journal. Honestly, how prophetic can you get? As the article clearly points out, Iran knows that the West is going to do nothing to stop it's nuclear ambitions and neither will the UN. They know that the only threat comes from Israel.

Also the article is accurate is stating that the weaker the West and the UN appear...the more probable an Israeli attack becomes.

The International Atomic Energy Agency has produced another alarming report on Iran's nuclear programs, though it hasn't released it publicly, only to governments that would also rather not disclose more details of Iran's progress toward becoming a nuclear theocracy. Meanwhile, Iran intends to introduce a resolution, backed by more than 100 members of the so-called Non-Aligned Movement, that would ban military attacks on nuclear facilities. No actual mention of Israel, of course.

The reality that Western leaders don't want to admit is that preventing Iran from getting the bomb is an Israeli national imperative, not a mere policy choice. That's a view shared across Israel's political spectrum, from traditional hawks like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to current Defense Minister and former Labor Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Israelis can see the relentless progress Iran is making toward enriching uranium, building a plutonium-breeding facility and improving on its ballistic missiles—all the while violating U.N. sanctions without consequence. Iran's march to the bomb also alarms its Arab neighbors, but it represents an existential threat to an Israeli nation that Iran has promised to destroy and has waged decades of proxy war against.

The consequences of an Israeli attack are impossible to predict, but there is no doubt they would implicate U.S. interests throughout the Middle East. Iran would accuse the U.S. of complicity, whether or not the U.S. gave its assent to an attack. Iran could also attack U.S. targets, drawing America into a larger Mideast war.

Foundations of a Global Government

We know that a movement for a global government has been gathering steam. As we have posted in the past, the earth's problems are simply getting too large to solve as individual countries. We have recently seen this with the financial predicaments and global warming...both of which are shaping up to provide the foundations for a global government.

Check out some of the statements made in this article reporting on UN talks regarding climate change;

GENEVA (Reuters) - Delegates from 150 nations met in Geneva on Monday to try to plug gaps in climate information to help the world cope with global warming and threats like floods, wildfires and rising sea levels.

"What we need is a formal system that all people can trust to access vital information that can save their lives and protect property and economies," he said of the planned "Global Framework for Climate Services" to be agreed in Geneva.

Pay close attention to these statements;
Delegates said most of those taking part in the talks were scientists and big disputes were unlikely.

"There is an expectation that we are closely aligned -- everybody wins if we move forward on this," said Sherburne Abbott, associate director for environment at the White House.

We are told that everyone there is going to be a by inference we are led to understand that ALL scientists are in agreement....and only an uneducated person would dispute their findings. Also note that the White House director expects everyone to be closely aligned.

Hezbollah Readies for War

It's not really news that Hezbollah has re-armed itself as they KNOW there will be another war with Israel. What is interesting is that after the 2006 war with Israel, the UN sent in 12,000 troops to keep the peace and also to prevent Hezbollah from re-arming.

Even though they are unarmed, their presence deters United Nations peacekeepers from approaching the house in Khirbet Silim, preventing the UN troops from fulfilling their mission, which is to stop Hezbollah from rearming.

“The UN can’t just come around here and go into people’s houses,” said Rassan Salim, a municipal official in the village and a Hezbollah militia member. “Our weapons are to defend Lebanon.”

You can read the full article here;

If you were Israel, you would certainly understand by now that the forces of evil that want to destroy you are gathering strength. You would also understand by now that you are going to have to face them all by yourself....because the UN, Europe and soon the U.S., will not assist you in the fight and may not even come to your aid if you are attacked.
