Blessed Are the Peacemakers

Most of us are familiar with this posting's words...which were spoken by Christ. Of course there are a few ways to interpret what he was saying when he gave his famous Sermon on the Mount.

Some say he was speaking to people who help other's gain peace with God...obviously through spreading the Gospel message.

Others say this was a directive to try and spread peace on earth.

Today we see this headline front on center on all major news reports;
President Obama to host Israeli-Palestinian talks

Next week's meetings are "another sign of the president's deep commitment to comprehensive peace that he wants to personally engage at this juncture, as we continue our efforts to encourage all sides to take responsibility for peace and to create a positive context for the resumption of negotiations," Mitchell said in the White House statement.

Read article here;

I do know that the Bible also speaks very seriously about those who mess with God's land...especially the division of it.

Let's continue to pray for Obama and pray that he is reading his Bible....asking God for wisdom.

U.N. Codemns Israel....Again

I recently read somewhere that the U.N. has spent over 2/3 of it's existence discussing, debating and chastising one single country.....Israel.

It appears that trend is not going to disappear anytime soon.

Overriding Western objections, a 150-nation nuclear conference on Friday passed a resolution directly criticizing Israel and its atomic program for the first time in 18 years. Iran hailed the vote as a "glorious moment."

Thankfully, the U.S. at least tried to stand up for Israel.

In an attempt to sway the assembly before the vote, US chief delegate Glyn Davies spoke out against an "attempt to use this resolution to criticize a single country."

"Such an approach is highly politicized and does not truly address the complexities at play regarding crucial nuclear-related issues in the Middle East," he said.

And consequently, we were warned by some of the very first haters of Israel (Remember the story of Esther and Haman? Haman was Iranian) that the U.S. had better be careful of it's continuous support of Israel.

But chief Iranian delegate Ali Asghar Soltanieh said the vote should serve as a warning to Washington and other supporters of the Jewish state.

"The US Administration .... has received a message that they should not continue supporting Israel at any price," he told reporters.

It is now becoming fairly obvious that Satan's rage against God's Holy Land and His chosen increasing. How else can you explain the amount of time that the U.N. spends on this tiny little country with a few square miles of desert?

U.S. Power Fading

The rest of the world has known for some time that the USA is THE lone superpower. So when it takes us a long time to "fix" Iraq...and now it is taking a long time to "fix" Afghanistan.....the rest of the world starts to wonder if we are actually as powerful as they were led to believe.

When this happens, it actually can make the world a lot more dangerous, for us and everyone, as our enemies will use our perceived weakness as a recruitment tool.

Today this headline hit Yahoo;

UK think tank says US power is fading

A weakened United States could start retreating from the world stage without help from its allies abroad, an international strategic affairs think tank said Tuesday.

The respected London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies said President Barack Obama will increasingly have to turn to others for help dealing with the world's problems — in part because he has no alternative.

"Domestically Obama may have campaigned on the theme 'yes we can'; internationally he may increasingly have to argue 'no we can't'," the institute said in its annual review of world affairs.

Read article here;

Most readers by now know that America is not mentioned anywhere in Biblical prophecy. Most have heard me say that I believe The Rapture of the church will be the final undoing of America...and that would answer the question that Bible readers always have of, "Where is America?"

The article above may be foreshadowing our demise....and allowing the other global players to begin jockeying for the coming fight over the new pecking order. A NEW WORLD ORDER.

Remember to pray for President Obama and all the leaders of this nation. Yes, I know it may be hard to do....but it's an obedience thing.

Obama's "Catholic Plan"

A Catholic friend sent me this YouTube video and asked whether I agreed with what this guy is saying.

You can watch the video here;

My answer to him was that I did agree with the video. Obama is the epitome of what it means to be a "liberal elite". Further, the liberal elites believe that they know (better than anyone else) what needs to be done to make things "fair and equitable"....that goes for U.S. citizens and for planet earth.

If you follow this rationale, then you quickly realize that they have to have the power.... to issue the edicts.... in order to make things "fair".

So many times, socialism starts out with good intentions.....but ALWAYS ends with blood shed when those in power become corrupt....and ultimately turn on those who question any of their motives.

Hint; why do you think so many detention facilities have been built at virtually every military base across the U.S.?? This includes Camp Ripley. Ask yourselves this; "Who does the government believe they will someday have to detain?"

It may be that anyone who believes and claims that the Bible is the inspired word of God (including fundamental Catholics, Lutherans and Covenanters)....will fall into direct conflict with the Federal Government....and become "eligible" to move to one of the detention facilities.

Do you think this could NEVER HAPPEN in America? If so....please read your world history and then read your Bibles.

Does Satan Foreshadow?

Let's review; The Koran IS NOT the Word of God. According to the words of Christ, things are either working FOR HIM or AGAINST HIM. By that definition then, the Koran is not leading people to Christ so it must have some Satanic roots and/or be inspired by Satan.

With that being said, is it possible that since Satan DOES read the bible, he can come to the same truths that you and I can. He can read Daniel and Revelation. In fact, Satan was so concerned that Gabriel was going to deliver the truth of his demise to the Prophet Daniel...that he fought Gabriel in the heavens and detained him until the angel, Micheal, could come and help fight. (Read if for yourselves)

Now, let's go to a really strange discussion.

I was searching the Internet for information on the Islamic prophesies of the 12th Imam (the Mahdi) and came across this blog written by a Muslim who believes the Mahdi is soon going to return. According to their beliefs, when he does return, HE WILL RULE THE EARTH FOR SEVEN YEARS.

Some Hadith says that Al-Mahdi will rule for 7 years while other Hadith says that he will rule for 9 years. Although it was agreed by Muslim scholars that Mahdi will rule from 7-9 years and then will pass away afterwards.

You can read this dude's blog here and see for yourselves how Satan has taken the truths of the bible and twisted them so that all the Muslims (and most of the fallen world) will believe that the Mahdi is the savior of the earth....when really he is the Anti-Christ that the bible warns is coming. Remember, the bible is very clear that the Anti-Christ will rule for about 7 yrs and then be thrown into the abyss when Christ returns at the end of the Tribulation.

Read if here;

Also notice as you read this Muslim blog that there are many signs and wonders that will happen including earthquakes, as the Mahdi returns....exactly as the bible says that signs and miricles will accompany the Anti-Christ.

I have read lots of amazing stuff in the past years...but honestly folks, this revelation that Satan has been twisting the exact details of Daniel and Revelation for his diabolical.

But really....should we expect anything less from the Prince of Darkness?

Iran Can Make a Bomb

Israel's worst fears may be closer than anyone actually knew. This breaking news headline just came out today;

AP NewsBreak: Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb

VIENNA (AP) - Experts at the world's top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press.

Read short article here;

So is the "breaking news" to the Israelis? Or is this simply more in the "rumors of war" that are flying around the globe?

I don't think I need to remind you that a few years back Pakistan and India detonated nuclear bombs and the CIA and the world's intelligence agencies were totally clueless that they even had nuclear-weapons programs.

The Jews will not have the luxury of making the same mistake.

Israeli Attack by December

Yes, we posted "Huge Rumors of War" yesterday which hilighted a WSJ article saying that Obama may be pushing Israel into a corner where they will be forced to attack Iran...certainly by Spring of 2010.

Today the news is in the Jerusalem Post saying that an attack of Iran may have to come by December of 2009.

"We cannot live under the shadow of an Iran with nuclear weapons," he was quoted as telling Reuters in an interview on a visit to the UK. "By the end of the year, if there is no agreement on crippling sanctions aimed at this regime, we will have no choice."

Sneh reportedly stressed that a military strike would be "the very, very last resort. But ironically it is our best friends and allies who are pushing us into a corner where we would have no option but to do it."

Sneh reportedly explained that Jerusalem could not accept a nuclear-armed Iran because government processes would be "substantially distorted," as the cabinet's decision making would be hostage to the fear of Teheran's nuclear retaliation.

See article here;

As we have said in the past, the Iranians invented the game of chess....and their is no doubt that Satan is positioned behind their belief in the 12th Imam's imminent if the world does nothing to stop Iran, they have us in "Check"....and if Israel attacks Iran and turns world opinion against the Jews and creates untold chaos...Iran has us in "Check".

So what would be considered "Check-mate" to the Iranian leaders and Satan??....maybe a Shahab missile armed with a nuclear warhead ready to explode over Tel Aviv and destroy the nation of Israel once and for all.

And the Jews say, "Never again!"

Follow Up to Man vs. God

Yesterday we posted a WSJ article that had two opinions about was supposedly from a Christian, named Karen Armstrong and one was from a world-famous atheist named Richard Dawkins. The posting title was, "Holy Crap".

What interested me the most was Dawkins talk of mankind someday worshiping aliens, but I also was well aware that Karen Armstrong seemed more about being "spiritual" and less about believing the Word of God.

That being said, many people came to the same conclusion that this WSJ article wasn't a debate between a Christian and and atheist....but really a discussion by two atheists.

The Wall Street Journal may be an unusual venue for theological debate, but this past weekend's edition featured just that -- a theological debate of sorts. The "of sorts" is a necessary qualifier in this instance, because The Wall Street Journal's debate was not, as advertised, a debate between an atheist and a believer. Instead, it was a debate between two different species of atheists.

Huge Rumors of War

In adult ed on Sunday we talked about the rumors surrounding Netanyahu disappearing for 12 hours to Russia.

Today, those rumors are expanding into something claiming that his disappearance was a diversion to keep media from seeing the test of a secret weapon...a weapon that may be used on Iran if war breaks out.

The mystery that surrounded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's unannounced trip to Russia was created by the Israeli government in a calculation to divert attention from a secret weapons test, according to sources.

The test, held at undisclosed Israeli military base while Netanyahu was traveling, was done with top-secret authorization from the White House, the sources reported.

Trusted confidential Israeli sources in Jerusalem close to the government told WND the Israeli military conducted the secret weapons test in preparation for a planned pre-emptive strike on Iran.

They reported the Israeli government has set no date for a possible strike, but preparations already are in an advanced stage.

Read it here;

OK, have now seen all the signs that Israel is getting ready to unleash something. If that, in fact, is what you truly want in hopes of creating massive hopes your 12th Imam will suddenly appear out of the chaos...Israel may be near the point where there is no turning back.

Holy Crap

Amazing!! Today's Wall Street Journal has an article titled; Man vs. God

So why is this so amazing? For a few reasons....first off that the Wall Street Journal would even begin to enter the waters of spiritual discussion. Secondly, it is one of the most read and emailed articles in The Journal today. Thirdly, the person they had write the "defense of God" part is clearly an emerging church author...who does not believe the bible is the word of God. And fourthly....THE EVOLUTIONIST TALKS ABOUT ALIENS THAT WE HUMANS MIGHT ONE DAY WORSHIP AS GODS!!

What if the greatest show on earth is not the greatest show in the universe? What if there are life forms on other planets that have evolved so far beyond our level of intelligence and creativity that we should regard them as gods, were we ever so fortunate (or unfortunate?) as to meet them? Would they indeed be gods? Wouldn't we be tempted to fall on our knees and worship them, as a medieval peasant might if suddenly confronted with such miracles as a Boeing 747, a mobile telephone or Google Earth? But, however god-like the aliens might seem, they would not be gods, and for one very important reason. They did not create the universe; it created them, just as it created us.

Mr. Dawkins goes on further to dig his eternal grave;

Where does that leave God? The kindest thing to say is that it leaves him with nothing to do, and no achievements that might attract our praise, our worship or our fear. Evolution is God's redundancy notice, his pink slip. But we have to go further. A complex creative intelligence with nothing to do is not just redundant. A divine designer is all but ruled out by the consideration that he must at least as complex as the entities he was wheeled out to explain. God is not dead. He was never alive in the first place.

Article is here;

Read this article, print it out and hand it to all your Christian friends. This is an exercise in discernment that we all need to take. As we have said over and over; Deception is coming!

As the bible tells us, "The Word of God is foolishness to those who are perishing."

As 1 Timothy goes on to tell us; "The Spirit clearly says that in later times (Last Days) some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."

Anyone who has heard me talk knows that what scientists are going to call "aliens"....the children of the light know that they will, in fact, be fallen angels with full intentions of deception.

Iran, Israel and Obama

As we have been noticing, Israel is in the headlines every single day in major newspapers around the world. Today is no different as the top read article in the Wall Street Journal is this headline;
Obama Is Pushing Israel Toward War

As we read the article, we can see that it confirms many of the same ideas we have discussed in adult education and on this blog....such as $300 per barrel oil ($8 gallon gasoline) literally overnight...which would reverse our stock market gains and put a total halt on the "recovery" the government claims we are experiencing.

Events are fast pushing Israel toward a pre-emptive military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, probably by next spring. That strike could well fail. Or it could succeed at the price of oil at $300 a barrel, a Middle East war, and American servicemen caught in between. So why is the Obama administration doing everything it can to speed the war process along?

This is a must read article as it clearly spells out what Israel's choices are. Also, as we said Sunday in adult ed.....Israel knows that Iran is trying to get the Russian S300 anti-aircraft system installed...and any strike would have to happen before it gets installed. Remember, many believe that the "hi-jacked" Russian ship said to be carrying lumber was really detained by Israeli commandos because it was carrying the S300 system and was bound for Iran....and that this discussion was had last week between Netanyahu and Russia....which is why Netanyahu disappeared for 12 hours last week.

But Israel is paying attention. And the longer the U.S. delays playing hardball with Iran, the sooner Israel is likely to strike. A report published today by the Bipartisan Policy Center, and signed by Democrat Chuck Robb, Republican Dan Coats, and retired Gen. Charles Ward, notes that by next year Iran will "be able to produce a weapon's worth of highly enriched uranium . . . in less than two months." No less critical in determining Israel's timetable is the anticipated delivery to Iran of Russian S-300 anti-aircraft batteries: Israel will almost certainly strike before those deliveries are made, no matter whether an Iranian bomb is two months or two years away.

Pray for Israel as this tiny little country with a only a few million people will need to stand up to the "giants" of this world...all by herself. But in your prayers, remember that King David was a just a small teenager 3000 years ago when he walked out into a field and killed that giant named Goliath....who was taunting the Jews.

No One Knows the Day or the Hour

This title of this post is actually a great passage from the bible. I have had this verse used many times against me as some believe I am "too watchful"....whatever that means. There is a large group of believers who spend zero time thinking about Christ's return or watching for what Christ told us to watch for....because their understanding is that all believers will be standing around clueless one day and all of a sudden they will see Jesus.

There really is no biblical basis for their belief. On the contrary, Paul and Jesus say we will not be surprised. (1 Thessalonians and Revelation)

Jack Kelly is a great prophecy writer and I have posted some of his other articles in the past. He too has been accused of being overly specific in his study of end times. He wrote an article recently about the two passages, "the thief in the night" and also "No one knows the day or the hour".

More Famine

Jesus told us to watch for famine in various places. Today the headlines are talking about a severe famine in Kenya and Mexico that is already affecting millions and leading to unrest.

With green pastures drying up, the drought is killing crops and children. It is stoking tensions in water-deprived slums and spawning ethnic conflict in communities fighting over the few remaining areas of fertile land, the newspaper reports.

Read full article here;

And in Mexico we see this headline;
Social tensions rise as Mexico suffers worst drought in 60 years

Residents of poor neighbourhoods have hijacked water trucks, and there are other signs of social tensions building, with water supplies cut off frequently, and many people queuing from 4am to ask for water trucks to fill tanks in their houses.

Read that one here;

If we haven't figured it out already, we are approaching the Tribulation. All of this turmoil is simply foreshadowing.

"What I say to you I say to everyone; Watch!" Jesus as recorded by Mark 13:37
