Making a Suicide Bomber

The linked article is both interesting and sad.

It's interesting because it shows how the Taliban is grabbing young men and forcing them to blow themselves up using a combination of of drugs, brainwashing and fear.

It's sad when you imagine your own 14 yr old teenage boy enduring the same treatment.

One thing for sure, the Taliban is driven by Satan himself.

There were five people who came after me from a place in Bajaur. They tricked me. They told me they were going to behead my father.

I went with them but my father wasn't there. They tied me up.
They said: 'You have two choices. We will behead you, or you will become a suicide bomber.' I refused.

There were two more guys of my age. They were also training to be suicide bombers. If we refused they would tie our hands behind our backs, blindfold us and start beating us.

They brainwashed us and told us we would go to heaven. They said 'there will be honey and juice and God will appear in front of you. You will have a beautiful house in Heaven'.

Read it here;

Jesus warned us that Satan is the father of all lies...and it appears that Islamic extremists have taken his bait...hook, line and sinker.

Continue to pray for the nation of Islam. There is a huge spiritual battle going on as Satan tries to hold ground during these last days. God is harvesting souls through the saving power of Jesus Christ and he is doing it right in the heart of Satan's territory....Islam.

Vatican Preps Us for Alien Life

Last night I had the opportunity to speak to a group of University of Minnesota students on The Last Days and what the Bible tells us to watch for.

We most certainly got into the passage of Genesis 6 that talked about the Nephilim who were created by fallen angels messing with human women and ultimately "corrupting" all flesh. They were so thorough with this corruption that in the end, the only humans (and animals??) without corrupted flesh were Noah and his family.

So God issued the message that he would not contend with this evil and he raptured Noah and his family above the wrath (foreshadowing of the rapture of the church?) and destroyed all the evil flesh by flooding the entire earth.

Please note that Genesis 6 says that the Nephilim were on the earth before the flood AND ALSO AFTER THE FLOOD.

Also please note that Jesus says, "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man." Matthew 24:37

So today this headline hits the news;

Vatican Seeks Signs of Alien Life

Scientists have discovered hundreds of planets outside our solar system — including 32 new ones announced recently by the European Space Agency. Impey said the discovery of alien life may be only a few years away.

"If biology is not unique to the Earth, or life elsewhere differs bio-chemically from our version, or we ever make contact with an intelligent species in the vastness of space, the implications for our self-image will be profound," he said.

This is not the first time the Vatican has explored the issue of extraterrestrials: In 2005, its observatory brought together top researchers in the field for similar discussions.
In the interview last year, Funes told Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano that believing the universe may host aliens, even intelligent ones, does not contradict a faith in God.
"How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?" Funes said in that interview.
"Just as there is a multitude of creatures on Earth, there could be other beings, even intelligent ones, created by God. This does not contradict our faith, because we cannot put limits on God's creative freedom."

Funes maintained that if intelligent beings were discovered, they would also be considered "part of creation."

Certainly, if an "alien" ship shows up and Obama introduces them to the world as our friends....we will not be able to say that we never saw it coming. We have been sufficiently prepped.

Just remember, if they deny the diety of Christ...they are from Satan.

"This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world." 1 John 4:2-3

Last Best Hope

Today is Veteran's Day, a day to honor all those who have served in the armed forces. Obviously they have been a large part of keeping America free and making America great.

I received this email from the Republican Party today and it struck me as prophetic;

St. Paul - Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Tony Sutton today issued the following statement on Veterans Day.

"Like all Americans, today we come together to proudly honor and express our heartfelt gratitude to our nation's armed forces veterans for their heroism, courage and commitment to country. As we honor America’s veterans, we resolve to never forget their sacrifices. While our deep appreciation can never be fully expressed in words, we recognize that it is because of the selfless dedication of American veterans in defense of freedom around the world that the United States of America will always remain the 'last best hope of Earth.'"

That last bold statement got me reflecting on the state of planet earth.

If the U.S. is the last best hope for planet earth (and we are) and we are bankrupt, Biblically illiterate, selfish, greedy, lover's of violence, addicted to porn, disrespectful, etc, etc, etc,.... What does that say about the long term prospects of planet earth?

We most certainly need a savior.

Thank you Jesus that we pathetic beings can place our eternal hope in you....because this world is passing away....and just like you said it would be, it seems to be happening like a flood.

Give Us the Golan

By now, most of us should remember that the Golan Heights is an area about 15 miles wide that overlooks the Sea of Galilee. Syria used to occupy it for centuries and turned it into an absolute wasteland because of overgrazing and cutting down all the trees.

See map of Golan here;

In 1948 when Israel became a nation, the Syrians used to sit on the high points of the Golan and shoot at Jews with high powered rifles, terrorizing them.

In 1967 the Syrians joined together with other Arab forces and decided again that they were going to invade Israel, take all their land and kill every Jew as they shoved them into the sea.

God had other plans. Not only did Israel survive but they shoved Syria all the way back to Damascus. So they took this strategic territory during a defensive battle. By all rules of the world....this should be Israel's land because they gained it only after Syria gambled it. It's also important to note that the League of Nations originally planned for the Golan to be part of Israel....not Arab lands.

Syria's loss to Israel 42 years ago has been a thorn in their side that they will never forget....and they cry about losing the Golan almost every single day.

Well today is no different, and they are crying about it again;

Syrian President Bashar Assad on Monday warned that if Israel does not negotiate away the Golan Heights, his nation may turn to more violent methods of reclaiming the territory it once controlled.

Speaking at an Islamic economic summit in Istanbul, Assad claimed to still want to reach a peace agreement with Israel, but said that if such an agreement is not based on Israel full surrender of the Golan, then "resistance" is an option he is seriously considering.

It was not the first time Assad has threatened war should Israel not meet his precondition for peace talks by guaranteeing a full Israeli pullout from the Golan.

Israel captured the Golan during the 1967 Six Day War after Syria had used it during the previous 19 years as a launching pad for repeated invasions of and attacks on the Jewish state. In the run-up to the Six Day War, the Syrian army had massed on the Golan in preparation for yet another invasion.

In 1982, Israel officially annexed the Golan returning the territory to the lands originally promised to the Jews by League of Nations, the forerunner to the UN.

Read it here;

What's SUPER FUNNY is that Syria, and the world, wants Israel to sit down to peace conferences without ANY preconditions. But here, Syria is saying that they won't even sit down with Israel unless Israel gives them back the Golan BEFORE THEY EVEN SIT DOWN TO NEGOTIATE!

I know the answer to this, but I must ask it again anyway; IS THE WORLD GOING INSANE??

Does Syria truly believe that they can threaten Israel?

China Warns Obama

By now, everyone knows that China holds an enormous amount of U.S. debt. Stated another way....we owe China a ton of money.

China is now concerned that we are just going to continue printing paper money (the government would prefer that we call this inflation) with which to pay them back the $trillion that we owe.

And they have a right to be concerned.

China is the largest holder of U.S. government debt and has invested an estimated 70% of its more than $2 trillion stockpile of foreign-exchange reserves (the world's largest) in dollar assets, Reuters reports. Further dollar weakness, brought on by enormous U.S. deficit spending and near-zero interest rates, would erode the value of China's huge U.S. holdings, as Henry and Aaron discuss in the accompanying clip.

"Most importantly, we hope the United States will keep an appropriate size to its deficit so that there will be basic stability in the exchange rate, and that is conducive to stability and the recovery of the global economy," Wen Jiabao said over the weekend at a news conference in Egypt.

If you watch the short video clip, notice how the discussion shifts from simply talking about monetary policy into talking about armed conflict with China.

As the host points out....If we owe China a bankrupting amount of money and China decides to invade Taiwan....what are we going to do about it??...borrow more money from the Chinese so we can pay our navy to go over there and confront China??

Sorry folks,...I hate to tell you this again, but the ONLY way we are going to get out of this unsustainable consumer-society-fiasco which we have if God has already chosen to keep us around to work his plans for Israel.

If, on the other hand, God is soon going to handle Israel on His own (which the Bible clearly states He will one day).....then we really should get about the business of snatching people from the fire....because selling your neighbor, or the world, on the "American dream" certainly going to be a lot tougher sell.

We have squandered the blessings God gave us and instead of being thankful to the master who gave them to us....we have invested them in the "patterns of this world"....which Jesus VERY CLEARLY WARNED US NOT TO DO!

So, if you are reading this and want desperately to go back to the good old days of buying anything we ever wanted and never thinking about better start praying for the Stimulus Package to work.

However, if you are reading this and realizing how foolish and disobedient we have been....we had better start praying, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

Middle East Heads Toward Abyss

The King of Jordan recently said that the region is heading towards an abyss. Remember that Jordan borders almost all of Israel on the eastern side.

Jordan's King Abdullah II warned on Monday against the continuation of the political stalemate reached in the region. In a special interview to London-based al-Hayat newspaper, Abdullah warned that if the current situation continues, it would be "heading towards an abyss. If there is no progress, if there is no vision, I am concerned about Palestine, and about the entire region."

In the first part of the two-part interview, Abdullah urged Israel to cease its "illegitimate steps that make chances for peace tough."

He said, "Jerusalem is the red line. The Israelis must understand Jerusalem's standing among the Arabs, the Muslims and the Christians, and should not play with fire."

Read article here;,2506,L-3802347,00.html

Isn't that interesting that the King specifically pointed out Jerusalem.....the apple of God's eye??

He then goes on to tell the Israelis that THEY must understand how important this city is to the Arabs and to not play with fire.

With all the history that the Jews have in Jerusalem, with the 1000+ times it's mentioned in the Torah, with all the ancient Jewish artifacts that have been found that PROVE their claim to the Arab King has to tell them to be careful about Jerusalem!!

Forget about the fact that Jerusalem is never mentioned in the Koran.

It's simply more evidence of the Satanic nature of Islam. Ever since God uttered the words claiming Jerusalem....Satan has coveted that Holy city. And he will use deceit, hatred, lies and everything else in his bag of tricks to convince his followers that they MUST POSSESS THAT CITY!!

You can't make this stuff up!!!

Dividing Jerusalem

The Bible gives stern warnings to those who would divide God's land.

More than rumors are growing that the Palestinian government may attempt to declare statehood and include the land that Israel recaptured during the1967 war....and that includes Jerusalem.

Obviously, if this happens it could put Israel in further conflict with the United Nations.

Concerns are growing in Israel's government over the possibility of a unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence within the 1967 borders, a move which could potentially be recognized by the United Nations Security Council.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently asked the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to veto any such proposal, after reports reached Jerusalem of support for such a declaration from major European Union countries, and apparently also certain U.S. officials.

The Bible also clearly states that Jerusalem will continue to be trampled upon by many nations until the fullness of the gentiles is complete. What does the "fullness of the gentiles" mean? It means that when the last person whose name is written in the Lamb's book of life accepts Christ as savior... then Christ's bride is made complete....the Father in heaven will send the son to collect his bride....that means the rapture of the church!

With all this trampling going on and all the world's attention focused on close may we be to this glorious event actually taking place?

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray that we can all have an urgency about us to go and snatch people from the fire by spreading the news of the Gospel.
