Hollywood Leads Millions to Christ

Of course we all know how damaging Hollywood films of late have been to our society.  The silver screen has pumped out more adultery, fornication, materialism and debauchery than one can possibly imagine.

But let's remember a promise from scripture that says, "What Satan means for evil God uses for good for those who love him."

It today's Wall Street Journal (of all places) there is an excellent article that talks about the biblical films made that have lead millions of people to Christ.

Then there is Warner Brothers' 1979 film "Jesus." Based on the Gospel of St. Luke, the film, funded in part by money raised by Campus Crusade for Christ founder Bill Bright, did poorly at the box office. But in 1981, Campus Crusade began translating it for use in the mission field. Known as "The Jesus Film," the movie has now been translated into more than 1,100 languages. Seen by literally billions of people around the world, it is arguably the most watched film ever—with many millions of viewers professing faith in Jesus Christ as a result. It is still being shown world-wide today.

Lastly there is Cecil B. DeMille's "The King of Kings," the spiritual predecessor to "Jesus." Its viewership was estimated at over 800 million people by 1959. Because it was produced as a silent film, Protestant and Catholic missionaries alike were able to use it for decades to share the Gospel with non-English-speaking peoples. According to DeMille's autobiography, during the Korean War Madame Chiang Kai-shek sent an emissary to DeMille seeking a copy of the film to show in P.O.W. camps.

Please access and read the entire article here;

In the article there is a powerful story about a Nazi who beat to death a Christian and then converted to Christianity himself and saved many from death.

Our God is an awesome God.  Even in the pits of hell that were visible in the concentration camps of WWII...He was powerfully at work...and thanks to some older movies produced in Hollywood, the Body of Christ has been built up all over the world.

Giant Whirlpools Puzzle Scientists

Here is an interesting article that proves yet again that God continues to frustrate our intelligent men and confound our wise men.....

US scientists discovered two giant whirlpools in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Guyana and Suriname. It became a sensational discovery because this part of the ocean has been studied thoroughly, and no one expected anything like that to appear in the area. More importantly, no one can understand where the whirlpools came from and what surprises they may bring to people.

According to Brazilian scientist Guilherme Castellane, the two funnels are approximately 400 kilometers in diameter. Until now, these were not known on Earth. The funnels reportedly exert a strong influence on climate changes that have been registered during the recent years.

See it here;

Hey!!! Someone call Al Gore!  Maybe it is the whirlpools that have been influencing climate change?!

When will mankind humble ourselves and realize that we are in control of nothing...we certainly can't steer our earth through the cosmos...and we certainly can't control the fountains of the deep.  We can't even understand it!  When will we surrender to the creative power of the universe, Jesus Christ?

"In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word (Jesus) was with God, and the Word (Jesus) was God.  He (Jesus) was with God in the beginning.  Through him (Jesus) all things were made; without him (Jesus) nothing was made that has been made."  John 1:1-3

On this Good Friday, let's remember that the Creative Power of the Universe humbled himself to pain, death on the cross and separation from the the hands of humans that He created.  We will spend all of eternity marveling at this supreme act of mercy.

Thank you Jesus.  We are eternally indebted to you for the price you paid for us.

World Bitten By Gold Bug

The front page of the Wall Street Journal today has the above title on the front page.  It does, in fact, seem as if the world has been bitten by the gold bug.

A person can't turn on the TV or the radio for more than 5 minutes without seeing a commercial to buy gold.  And yesterday gold closed at over $1500 per ounce...when just a handful of years ago it would have been around $200 per ounce.

Why is this happening?

Here is probably the main reason;

 People have a feeling that our paper money is going to go in the toilet so they want to have something that is tangible and as the saying goes, "Gold has never been worth nothing." all the folks are worried about their savings and investments becoming worthless so they are desperately trying to find something that they hope will hold it's value.

Once this happens and millions of people start clamoring for the exact same thing, the demand skyrockets and until the supply can catch up...the price also skyrockets.  Basic Economics 101.

And then when everyone else who DIDN'T own any gold sees that gold was up 100% in the last few years while their bank only payed them 1%....they can't hardly stand the fact that they missed the opportunity for such handsome gains...and they cash in much of their savings and buy gold...believing it is going to go up another 100% in the next year.  And now we have a classic bubble building...just like we did in the Dot-Com boom of the late 1990's, and just like we had in the real estate boom that popped in 2008.

If I had an ounce of gold for every time someone asked me about buying gold in the last three years....I believe I would have enough to fashion a golden calf!

So is gold going to continue going up?  Who knows??  If the dollar continues to fall in value and demand all over the world, then I would say that gold WILL continue to go up when compared to the value of the dollar.  But for how long?  Who knows?  The world is starting to spin out of control so fast that no one knows what may happen in the short term.

But I do know one thing for sure....whatever "the world" is clamoring for, we Children of the Light should be very suspect of.  Remember what Ezekiel said;

“‘They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath. It will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs, for it has caused them to stumble into sin."

Unprecedented Flooding in Columbia

Last year we had floods of "biblical proportion" happen in Pakistan and Australia.  Now it appears the floods that started last year in Columbia are continuing to worsen and are being called the worst ever.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos warned: “There are going to be a lot of needy people, there has never been a tragedy of this scale in our history.”

Columbia has suffered from the wettest rainy season on record and the floods have been building since December of last year.

Billions of dollars of losses have already accrued with lost property, damaged crops and homes washed away so the national government has been seeking approval from Congress for an additional 5.7 trillion pesos to finance a flood damage fund.

See it here;

Did you notice how the crops have been damaged?  You can now add Columbia as a place that will NOT be adding to our global food shelf....but instead will need to take FROM the shelf. 

There WILL BE FAMINE, said Jesus.

Remember Their Words

We have recently posted about how the world is exerting pressure on Israel to make "peace" with their Arab neighbors...specifically the Arabs of Palestine.

So let's look at some of what the Arab leaders have been saying as this expected "peace" draws close;

These are the words said in 2007 by Mahmoud Al-Zahar, the founder of Hamas: "There is no place for you Jews among us and you have no future among the nations of the world. You are headed to annihilation."

These are the voices of Palestine. The Chairman of the Parliament, Ahmad Bahar, said: "Make us victorious over the infidel people. Allah, take hold of the Jews and their allies; Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don't leave even one."

The next statement is from Ibrahim Mudayris, an official of the Palestinian Authority, Ministry of Religious Trust and Religious Affairs: "The prophet said the resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them. Rejoice in Allah's victory. Everything wants vengeance on the Jews, these pigs on the face of the earth, and the day of our victory, Allah willing, will come."

Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, the party of God, an Islamic party in Lebanon, funded and created by the Iranians has said that he hopes that the Jews will gather in Israel, so he won't have to hunt [them] down globally.

The creator of Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood, about which you've read something in the last few weeks during the protests in Egypt. Here's what Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, has said. Qaradawi spoke in Cairo a week or two ago to a million cheering Muslims: "Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler by means of all the things he did to them. Even though they exaggerated this issue, he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers."

Boy oh boy!!  Sounds like peace is just around the corner!!

Honestly poorly may it go for the USA if we continue to pressure Israel to divide it's land for the sake of these Satanically inspired hate mongers?

Stormiest Spring EVER

We just had the TV turned to Good Morning America and the meteorologist said that they were tallying up the storm and tornado totals and waiting for it to become OFFICIAL....but it looks like this recent outbreak of tornadoes is going to put Spring 2011 in the record books as the stormiest spring EVER.

Alien Warns Kids of Earthquake Danger

Yesterday we posted on Obama's urging of the 11 states around the New Madrid fault to have earthquake drills.  Illinois is one of the states that is on the fault and could have millions of people impacted. 

So today we learn the state of Illinois paid a video game designer over $250,000 to put together a computer game for kids to learn about earthquake danger.  In the game an alien named Zorg comes out of his flying saucer and tells the kids about the dangers of earthquakes and how they can be prepared.

Calling it "Disaster Ville," state officials used federal Homeland Security grant money to develop a children's video game.

With a crescendo of cheesy thriller music, the day the earth shook begins. "Welcome to Disaster Ville," says the sign, and a young boys plays ball-- unaware of the danger that lurks beneath his feet. This is the video game featured on the State of Illinois Emergency Management website, touting next Thursday's earthquake preparedness drill.

A 7 or 8-level shaker along the New Madrid fault line could affect more than 15 million people, topple thousands of bridges and buildings, and, emergency officials say, result in catastrophic loss of life.

More than 400 Indiana schools and 600,000 residents got a head start Tuesday with their own earthquake exercise.

"I'm not taking it lightly. This is a serious drill to practice," said Perry Township, Ind., teacher Kelly Chamberlain.

While Illinois emergency officials plan similar drills next week, for now this is how they want children to prepare: With that little boy in the video game being visited by a flying saucer and an alien called Zorg telling him he is in "great danger." The one-eyed alien then leads him on a treasure hunt through a virtual home, gathering up equipment that you might need in the event of the big one.

See it here; simply can't make this up!!  Aliens and the New Madrid fault all in the same article!  Also take note that the article talks about an earthquake on the New Madrid toppling thousands of bridges.....I believe we just blogged about such a yesterday.

U.S. Credit: The Armageddon Scenario

Yesterday we posted about the USA losing it's triple AAA credit rating and the problems that could bring to an already shaky house of cards our financial system has become.

Today we find this article talking about the death spiral that can happen when TOO much money is borrowed and the interest rate becomes TOO high.

credit rating downgrade for the United States would spell even more financial trouble for the U.S. government, hampering its ability to borrow money as investors demand higher yields to make up for the increased risk. That would cause its national debt to balloon further and increase the need to hike taxes or make even more painful cuts in spending.
But the real Armageddon scenario would occur when the impact of a sovereign downgrade hit the rest of the U.S. economy.
The U.S. “risks eroding its standing at the core of the global monetary system,” Mohamed El-Erian, chief executive and co-chief investment officer at PIMCO, wrote in a commentary piece for the Financial Times.
Pension funds and investment trusts that are bound by covenant to invest only in AAA-rated debt could be forced to dump U.S. holdings. Banks that do the bulk of their business in the U.S. could themselves face downgrades. Eventually, the dollar could lose its status as the world’s reserve currency.
The ripple effects of Standard & Poors’ decision to downgrade its outlook for the U.S. were already spreading on Monday.
In hindsight this seems like such a simple quagmire to avoid.  QUIT BORROWING MONEY and this would have never happened.
But it seems as if a strange force takes over all of our elected politicians upon convening in Washington....they get subdued by the god of Mammon and start to believe all his lies, "You can have it now and pay for it later!  You deserve to have it now...the money will take care of itself!  You were elected to bring Federal money home to your do your job!"
Let's remember what 1 John 5:19 says, "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one."
And yes, that does mean that the U.S. government, (which is part of the whole world) is under the control of the evil it shouldn't surprise us that most of our politicians have believed the lies.

Alien Video Goes Viral

It's being reported that an alien was found in Siberia....and there is a video of it.  The video has gone viral, meaning millions are viewing it as we type.

Incredible footage has emerged of what a group of Russians claim is the remains of a mangled alien. 

The lifeless 'body" was supposedly discovered lying in snow in the Irkutsk region of southern Siberia following reports of a UFO crash last month.

The "extra-terrestrial" appears to have suffered horrific injuries -- including the loss of one limb.

Shocked villagers had told of seeing a pink and blue glowing object hurtling towards the town before the alien was found. 

The bizarre reports were taken so seriously, they were investigated by the country's Emergencies Ministry staff.

The mystery deepened when investigators said no aircraft were reported in the area. And search and rescue teams found no evidence of an aircraft crash.

Read more:

What the heck!  You should watch the video on the link and see what you think?  Is it all just one big hoax?  Are millions of people all over the world along with dozens of governments all taking part in some huge deception just because they have nothing better to do than fake elaborate UFO's, crop circles and made up alien men?

Or is Satan preparing the ground for a massive deception and his demons have been cooking strange flesh....and the video is showing one that got away...or was meant to be found?

The Bible tells us he did it why not do it again when 70-80% if humans believe in "alien" visitors from other planets....when really they are simply demons in disguise....looking to deceive people and lead them off the narrow path which Christ prescribed for us.

Obama Urging Earthquake Drills

An interesting headline came out today regarding earthquake drills that Obama wants to happen in 11 states.  If you had to name those 11 states you would of course think of California, Alaska, Hawaii and maybe Nevada??  But you would be wrong.  Here is the list of the 11 states;

 Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee. The 11th state, Indiana, conducted its drill today.

The date marks the 200th anniversary of the great New Madrid earthquakes, which shook parts of the midwest back in 1811 and 1812. California regularly hosts “shakeout” rehearsals to train schoolchildren on what to do if “the big one” strikes.
“Recent events throughout the world — a powerful earthquake in Japan, the fifth largest in recorded history, as well as devastating earthquakes in New Zealand and Haiti — serve as a reminder that earthquakes can happen at any time and can have disastrous and far-reaching effects,” the secretaries wrote in their letter.
“All of our citizens, and especially our students, can play a critical role in helping our nation become well-prepared,” they wrote. “Giving our next generation of leaders the tools to help teach their friends, families, and peers how to be ready for earthquakes will help our entire country become more resilient in the face of a disaster.”
Next week’s drill precedes a long-anticipated national dress rehearsal scheduled for mid-May. The National Level Exercise (NLE) is slated to bring together federal, state and local officials aross the same states to game out the potential response to another New Madrid-style quake.

See it here;

Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time knows we have been watching the New Madrid very closely.  The last time it broke was 1811-1812 with the largest quake making the Mississippi flow north and ringing church bells as far away as Boston. 

Remember what FEMA says:  Since then, the regions along the NMSZ have experienced explosive growth in both population and infrastructure. Another series of earthquakes of similar intensity today could prove catastrophic to the region. would be catastrophic.  I wonder if it could knock out our power, underground pipes that deliver our gasoline and diesel and knock down our interstate highways which are vital to our entire economy moving along on the backs of semi trucks?  I wonder how long Cub Foods in Buffalo would keep food on it's shelves if the New Madrid broke today?

And So It Begins....

For years now we have been warning about the possibility that the USA could lose it's AAA credit rating.  When that happens the interest rates that the rest of the world charges us for the $14,000,000,000,000 in outstanding loans we have will go up.  And if currently we are having a tough time making the interest rate payments at 3% interest...imagine how difficult of time we will have paying 7-8 or 9% interest?

Greece just had a bond auction to sell two year notes and the price was bid up to 20% don't think it's not possible that we are going in the same direction as Greece.

So today the top headline in the Wall Street Journal was this;

U.S. Warned on Debt Load

A blunt warning Monday from a credit-rating firm about the U.S. government's mounting debt pushed stock markets lower and intensified political divisions in Washington about how best to tackle growing deficits.

Both the Obama administration and House Republicans scrambled to gain leverage from Standard & Poor's changing its outlook on U.S. Treasury securities to "negative" from "stable."

S&P didn't lower its top-notch AAA-bond rating for U.S. government Treasury securities, and their prices initially fell but later rebounded amid optimism that the report could serve as a catalyst to force both sides in Washington to compromise.

See it here;

With arguments raging in Washington about whether to raise the debt limit and Congress recently fighting over the budget to pass temporary spending plans to keep the Federal Government open....what do you think the chances are that our politicians are going to agree on a plan to "compromise"?

Obama tells us we all need to sacrifice and come together.  Some are going to have to do with a little less while others are going to have to pay a little bit more....and if we all agree to this premise then things are going to get bright, rosy and cheerful again and we can restore America to the great nation that she was.....

I wonder if that isn't what the politicians were saying in Greece last year...and within weeks riots and unrest had started.

Another Trigger for America's Demise?

A few politicians get it.  Last month we posted the words of Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann who said that if America ceases to support Israel then she believes America will also cease...because there is a certain curse in the Bible that comes into play.

Following that statement, this headline is pretty ominous, quite frankly.  It appears that the Quartet, which consists of United States, Russia, European Union and United Nations, may all be getting together soon and recognizing Palestine as it's own state, which means that it would demand Israel shove back to the 1967 borders.

American and European diplomats warned that if Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu fails to present a new peace initiative soon, the Quartet may be compelled to recognize a Palestinian State in the 1967 borders, with east Jerusalem as its capital, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, Netanyahu is under mounting pressure to unveil a new plan that would jump-start the deadlocked negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

If the prime minister does not deliver, the Quartet members – which include the United State, Russia, The European Union and the United Nations – may opt to resume the peace process by officially endorsing a Palestinian state.

"The Israelis are facing a bit of pressure with the way things are proceeding," a western diplomat stationed in Israel told the newspaper. "People are starting to look to the US for some kind of action," he added.

See it here;,7340,L-4058472,00.html

A bit of pressure??  Is that what you would call taking what tiny bit of land that Israel has and forcing them to give it to people who have sworn they will NEVER rest until Israel is totally vanquished into the sea and the Jews are all chased out or killed??....A bit of pressure??  Really??

I'm not going to make predictions, but it would follow the patterns of scripture that if America signs a document effectively splitting Israel, which is God's holy land, that the United States will also be split.  That may mean the New Madrid fault splits us, or race wars and unrest begin to split us, or our financial insolvency comes to a head and splits us in half, or a solar storm cuts us in half....or a combination of all of the above.  But know this for sure....there WILL BE supernatural consequences if the USA signs the document splitting Israel.  You can take that to the bank.

Puberty Blocker

A reader sent me this article today along with a simple comment, "Unbelievable".  We would have to agree.

Children as young as 12 are to be allowed drugs to block puberty while they decide whether to have a sex change, it has been revealed.

The monthly injection suspends the onset of adulthood so that young people confused about their gender can be sure of any decision before they take on too many masculine or feminine features.  

Supporters say that the "window" prevents a great deal of mental and physical anguish caused by the maturing of sex organs, facial hair growth and changes in the voice.

But critics argue it only prolongs the agony and can prevent people "growing out" of any feelings of confusion.

The treatment can be prescribed for people diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID) – a rare psychiatric condition where a person is born one sex, but feels they are the other.

One of the main effects of the drugs is to stunt the development of sexual organs so less surgery will be required if someone chooses to permanently change their gender at a later date.

See it here;

So what's going on here?  Of course it is simply one more example of Satan's attempts to blur the God-given lines that our Creator clearly prescribed for mankind.

"And he created them male and female", is one of the first lines in the Bible.  Once Satan saw that Word of God printed in the book (Bible) he decided to make a run at that one....just like he makes a run at every one of God's clear statements.

Satan's main goal to make God out to be a liar.  Since he can't do that, his next plan of attack sets out to make all of us simple-minded humans doubt the Word of God.

We say something like this in our brains and, sadly, are now even hearing it from the pulpits...."Did God really say he created them male or female....?"

Sound familiar?  It should.  It was the first question Satan asked Eve as he was sewing the seeds for the downfall of all mankind.

I guess the more things change in the human realm...the more things stay the same in the spiritual realm.

If Jesus tarries his much time do you think it will be until the politically correct require these drugs to be administered to all children until those kids will be old enough to tell us what gender they believe they are?  After all, how dare we parents raise our kids as boys or girls when our children have not been able to clearly tell us, or even know for themselves...whether they are boys or girls?

Lord Jesus, thy kingdom come!....please!!

One Shock Away

The World Bank president has issued an ominous statement;

The president of the World Bank has warned that the world is "one shock away from a full-blown crisis".
Robert Zoellick cited rising food prices as the main threat to poor nations who risk "losing a generation".
He was speaking in Washington at the end of the spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
Let's see....what could that one shock possibly be??  How about a severe drought in the USA impacting our grain harvest...and Texas and Oklahoma are already reporting their worst spring rains since the Dustbowl?
How about a few more severe quakes...maybe one on the New Madrid fault that squashes our infrastructure and causes billions in which we don't have?
How about a solar storm that knocks out electricity in areas for weeks?
How about if we keep burning 40% of our corn crop making ethanol and drive corn up to $10-12 dollars per bushel and shove millions of people into starvation and further poverty?
The world is ripe for catastrophe.
Where is your foundation built?  Will it survive storms and turmoil?

Tornadoes Rip Through

While we were enjoying some cold weather here in Minnesota, the situation was much more severe to the south and east of us.  62 tornadoes ripped through North Carolina alone yesterday and shattered a previously set record....and the storm has killed dozens of people.

“We had 62 tornadoes touch down in NC yesterday in a matter of a couple of hours, the record before that was set in 1984, about 20. This front was gigantic.”

RALEIGH, N.C. — Rescue crews searched for survivors in wind-blasted landscapes Sunday in North Carolina, the state hardest hit by a storm system that spawned dozens of tornadoes from Oklahoma to Virginia and left dozens dead.
The spring storm, North Carolina's deadliest in two decades, spun off 62 tornadoes in that state alone Saturday night. Eleven people were confirmed dead in rural Bertie County, county manager Zee Lamb said.
Another four were confirmed dead in Bladen County, bringing the state's death toll to at least 21. Deaths reported by officials in five other states brought the U.S. toll to 45.
As we said in the previous post...the earth is groaning.
Soon, men will be fainting with fear as they observe what is coming upon them.
If you haven't already, please accept Jesus Christ as your savior and risen Lord...and allow him to make peace with God for that you can escape the wrath that may soon be poured out planet earth and it's rebellious inhabitants.

Swarm of Quakes

It would appear that hundreds of quakes have happened very recently on the Nevada-California border.

Nevada Seismologists are keeping a close eye on an area southwest of Hawthorne, Nevada where hundreds of earthquakes have been detected since Sunday.
" It's a little bit concerning in a sense.. The largest earthquakes in these sequences are pretty large in size." Graham Kent is Director of Nevada Seismological Laboratory at the University of Nevada Reno. He says there have been hundreds of earthquakes southwest of Hawthorne over the past few days. The largest-- recorded at a 4.4 in size.

"These are the biggest in a sequence we've seen at least in the last couple of years." Kent says unlike the 2008 quakes in Somersett that damaged so many homes, these earthquakes are fortunately not underneath a community.

Size is not the only reason Kent says they are watching the swarm of quakes closely. The location of these quakes is on top of a fault that has until now remained unknown or has not been active. Kent then made an eerie comparison, "Whats really interesting about most of these earthquakes we've experienced. Short of the Chilean and Japanese; Haiti, Baha, even Christchurch.. Were on unknown faults.

But Kent says just because those devastating quakes happened on un-named faults does not mean that the series of quakes near Hawthorne will lead to a big quake there. Reno, Carson City and the Las Vegas valley all lie on top of fault lines. And right now, there is no way to predict where the next big quake will occur.

"That's yet another reason why you don't want to look at the map and go phew, I'm safe. We're in earthquake country and so we have to be prepared.

See it here;

Did you catch the sentence about the quakes happening on a fault that "until now remained unknown..."?

Jesus said there would be quakes in "various" places.  I wonder if that is somehow a reference to describe quakes happening in the Last Days in places where we haven't expected them....or prepared for them?

We will have to watch and see.

Simply put.....the earth continues to groan.
