Pollinator Decline

We have posted in the past about "colony collapse"...a phenomenon where the bees all just disappear and or die.  Recently there has been something killing of the bats...some type of fungus.

Scientists are scrambling trying to figure it all out because these two, plus butterflies, do an awful lot of pollinating.

Albert Einstein told us that if the pollinators disappear that mankind would only have 4 years left on earth before they all died of this is a pretty serious topic.

The fate of bees is important because they pollinate so many plants, said David Goulson, a biologist at the University of Stirling in Scotland who led the study involving bumblebees. Losing too many of the world's bees could endanger wildflowers, which in turn would affect birds and butterflies, he said.

Bees also help pollinate scores of fruit and vegetable crops, a service that's estimated to be worth $15 billion to the agricultural industry. In California alone, growers rely on honeybees to pollinate 90 crops, including avocado, almond, cherry and plum trees as well as vegetables grown from seeds. In the absence of plentiful bees, California growers could be forced to spend about $250 million renting bees to fertilize their crops.

The new findings lend support to the notion that pesticides contribute to colony collapse but leave open the likelihood that habitat destruction and illness play a role too, scientists said.

"There are a whole lot of things that stress the honeybees," said Eric Mussen, a honeybee specialist at
UC Davis. "You can't point your finger at one thing and say, 'That is the problem.' "

"There's a general phenomenon of pollinator decline — bats, bird, butterflies, all kinds of things," he said.


Holy extinction!  What's going on with all the bats, birds, butterflies and all kinds of things?  Could this be one other canary in the mineshaft that is warning us that something big is happening on planet earth?

Whose going to pollinate all our food?  I don't think we can hire it done.

I guess we truly are reliant on God for ALL things.  Maybe science doesn't have it all figured out?

Is America Betraying Israel?

Let's pray that Team Obama is not betraying Israel by tipping off Iran.  If this report is true, it could mean serious curses coming for USA.

The United States is leaking information to the media in order to avert an Israeli strike in Iran: The US Administration recently shifted into high gear in its efforts to avert an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities by the end of the year. The flood of reports in the American media in recent weeks attests not only to the genuine US fear that Israel intends to realize its threats; moreover, it indicates that the Obama Administration has decided to take its gloves off.

Indeed, in recent weeks the Administration shifted from persuasion efforts vis-à-vis decision-makers and Israel’s public opinion to a practical, targeted assassination of potential Israeli operations in Iran. This “surgical strike” is undertaken via reports in the American and British media, but the campaign’s aims are fully operational: To make it more difficult for Israeli decision-makers to order the IDF to carry out a strike, and what’s even graver, to erode the IDF’s capacity to launch such strike with minimal casualties.

The first and most important American objective is to eliminate potential operational options available to the IDF and the State of Israel. I have no intention of detailing or even hinting to the options which the US government aims to eliminate by exposing them in the media. A large part of the reports stem from false information or disinformation, and there is no reason to reveal to the Iranians what’s real and what isn’t. However, it is blatantly clear that reports in the past week alone have caused Israel substantive diplomatic damage, and possibly even military and operational damage.

To sum up, the American publications caused the following damage:

*Iran now has a decent picture of what Israel’s and America’s intelligence communities know about Tehran’s nuclear program and defense establishment, including its aerial defenses.

*The Iranians now know about the indications that would be perceived by Washington and Jerusalem as a “nuclear breakthrough”. Hence, Iran can do a better job of concealment.

*The reports make it more difficult to utilize certain operational options. These options, even if not considered thus far, could have been used by the US in the future, should Iran not thwart them via diplomatic and military means.


Can you imagine USA tipping off Germany as Britain plans an attack during WWII?  It's simply not what "friends" do to each other.

Of course we know that Israel won't have any friends in the Last this shouldn't surprise us to see Israel all alone as it attempts to do battle against the Satanic nations of Islam all by itself...kind of like King David went into battle against Goliath all by himself...against all odds.

However, we do have some hope that in the same way God provided Queen Esther to foil the vial Haman's plan to kill all the Jews...that He also has an amazing plan that will save Israel from this generation's Haman, now called Ahmadinejad.

Entire Mosques Coming to Christ

If this is true it is incredibly good news...for the world and even more so for the Kingdom.

The idea of more than 200,000 former Muslims coming to faith in Sub-Saharan Africa within a few short years is mind-boggling. But entire mosques in Sub-Saharan Africa coming to faith? That news is even harder to wrap one's mind around, but it is in fact what is happening according to reports from a former church planter among Muslims in West Africa.

In the new book Miraculous Movements, Jerry Trousdale, now director of International Ministries for CityTeam International, records amazing and inspiring stories of faith among Muslim communities in Africa. The author opens up a new world to Western readers, taking them into the heart of the "miraculous movement" of God in Africa that is transforming the hearts of Muslims.

Trousdale writes that "unprecedented" events are happening among the Muslim populations that his ministry and its affiliates are working among, including:
• Multiple cases of entire mosques coming to faith
• Thousands of ordinary men and women being used by God to achieve seemingly impossible outcomes
• Tens of thousands of Muslim background Christians becoming dedicated intercessors who fast and pray for the gospel to penetrate the next community
• Muslim people groups that never had even one church among them now have more than fifty church planted, and in some cases more than one hundred churches – within two years of engagement
• Former sheikhs, imams and militant Islamists making up 20 percent or more of the new Christian leaders in Muslim regions


Praise the Lord!  Can you imagine how this world would change if millions of Muslims laid aside the lies of Islam and started spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

If you go to the article you can also read about a man who came to Christ by a dream.  This is happening to thousands upon thousands of Muslims.

"In the last days your old men will dream dreams and your young men will see visions." says the prophet Joel and repeated by Peter.  That certainly seems to be the case.  The Harvest is at hand!

Demand for USA Debt is Not Limitless

Finally, a voice of reason appears in yesterday's Wall Street Journal asking the question, "Can the Federal Reserve continue buying U.S. Treasury's in massive quantities forever?"  That's the question we have been asking for four years now and simply can't get a straight answer.

For those of you who may be yawning before this blog post even gets started....just put on your thinking cap for one more minute.

The Federal Reserve 'bought' 61% of all U.S. Treasury's issued last year.  Yes...that is staggering...especially when you understand that the Federal Reserve has no real money to spend $trillions on buying IOU's.  This would be a little bit like when Bernie Madoff's Growth Fund was short of cash so he "borrowed" it from the Bernie Madoff Balanced Fund.  The funny thing was is that neither fund had any REAL money....that was long gone and was really just book entries on a tablet and all the investors had faith the "real" money was backing up all the book entries.

The conventional wisdom that nearly infinite demand exists for U.S. Treasury debt is flawed and especially dangerous at a time of record U.S. sovereign debt issuance.

The recently released Federal Reserve Flow of Funds report for all of 2011 reveals that Federal Reserve purchases of Treasury debt mask reduced demand for U.S. sovereign obligations. Last year the Fed purchased a stunning 61% of the total net Treasury issuance, up from negligible amounts prior to the 2008 financial crisis. This not only creates the false appearance of limitless demand for U.S. debt but also blunts any sense of urgency to reduce supersized budget deficits.

The Fed is in effect subsidizing U.S. government spending and borrowing via expansion of its balance sheet and massive purchases of Treasury bonds. This keeps Treasury interest rates abnormally low, camouflaging the true size of the budget deficit. Similarly, the Fed is providing preferential credit to the U.S. government and covering a rapidly widening gap between Treasury's need to borrow and a more limited willingness among market participants to supply Treasury with credit.

The failure by officials to normalize conditions in the U.S. Treasury market and curtail ballooning deficits puts the U.S. economy and markets at risk for a sharp correction. Lessons from the recent European sovereign-debt crisis and past emerging-market financial crises illustrate how it is often the asynchronous adjustment between budget borrowing requirements and the market's appetite to fund deficits that triggers a shock or crisis. In other words, budget deficits often take years to build or reduce, while financial markets react rapidly and often unexpectedly to deficit spending and debt.


Words like "shock", "crisis" or "sharp correction" are certainly a possibility.  Just like it was a shock and a crisis to learn that Bernie Madoff was just passing out balance sheets that showed everything that investors wanted to see...and it was a "shock" and a "crisis" to learn that thousands of investors had lost everything.

What to you think might happen if 50% of the $000's that the U.S. government has created out of thin air and has sitting in cyber space on bank spread sheets...suddenly vanishes?  Could that be a shock to the global system? 

Might it surpass the breathless news of Whitney Houston's early death by drowning or who is going to be the next American Idol?

China's Financial Stability Threatened?

Let's review;  America has $17,000,000,000,000 of outstanding debt and 61% of all Treasury issued debt was bought by the Federal Reserve last year.  In decades past the Federal Reserve had bought single digit percentages, and most years bought none.

To add to the problem, China has bought about $1,000,000,000,000 of that debt.  So what would happen if China got in serious financial trouble from all of their financial mismanagement and ended up coming to the USA and cashing in the trillion that we owe them?

BEIJING (Reuters) - Bad debts in China's banks painfully expose the shortcomings of an archaic financial system geared to lend to the beck and call of government economic policy, rather than when it is profitable.

The crux of the problem is rising distrust of official appraisals of China's 10.7 trillion yuan ($1.7 trillion) local government loans, which surged on the orders of government as it rolled out a 4 trillion yuan economic stimulus program at the end of 2008.

Banks say less than 1 percent of the loans are in trouble, a number some investors say is too low to be real as lending unleashed to spur economic growth at its weakest point implies a rising risk of bad debt as the economy slows again.

"I talk to so many people and they say the same thing: they do not trust the data coming from Chinese banks," said James Antos, a bank analyst at Mizuho Securities Asia in Hong Kong.

Investors' worst fears are a cover-up that threatens financial stability in the world's No. 2 economy.


Holy lack of trust!  We all know that confidence is the crux of this whole global financial system.  What if everyone loses trust in China and the truth of their crooked banking system comes to light and causes a flee from China?  What if they decide to start a war to keep their people focused on something else?  What if they cash in the trillion we owe them?  If they did and we can't find buyers for the trillion...could that expose the USA to a crisis in confidence?  If the USA starts to collapse, could the rest of the world start to collapse with it?  If the global financial system collapses could the Antichrist come up with a really good idea of how to rebuild it?  Would the people be willing to take a mark on the forearm in order to link into the new system?

Yes, the thought of this may make some uneasy, but just remember...THE KING IS COMING!

U.S. Silent on Top Imam Ordering Church Destruction

As we asked on an earlier post, what do you think the outcry of the world would be if the Pope stood on his pulpit in Rome and said that there could be no peace in Europe until all the Mosques were destroyed?

Of course the media would play the tape 100,000 times per day for a week and the Muslims would go on TV saying how disturbing the pope's comments were and then the Muslims of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Gaza and every other backwater Muslim cesspool would start protesting...and they would probably kill a few dozen folks during their protests.

But as of today the USA has remained silent about Saudi Arabia's top Imam saying that all Christian churches need to be destroyed in the Arabian Peninsula.  He is very clear that there can only be one religion and it is you may as well warn all the Christians that they better start thinking of converting...or be destroyed.

( – Ten days after Saudi Arabia’s foremost religious leader called for a demolition of all churches in the Arabian Peninsula – in line with a purported injunction by Mohammed – the U.S. government and other allies of the kingdom have yet to react.

Major media outlets also have largely ignored the incident; a Nexis search finds reporting on the issue has been restricted to blogs and opinion columns, including a Washington Times editorial on March 16.

On March 12, Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh was quoted in Arabic media reports as telling a visiting Kuwaiti delegation that it was “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.”

Lawmakers in Kuwait are mulling a ban on the new construction of any non-Islamic places of worship in the small Gulf state, and the delegation asked Asheikh for his opinion. The grand mufti, a member of the ruling royal family, is the undisputed Sunni spiritual arbiter in Islam’s birthplace.


Yes!....let's continue to be very quiet about all this Islamic intolerance and calls to violence.  After all, we wouldn't want to disturb the Muslims around the world by pointing out evidence that Islam isn't all about peace, love and tolerance.  In fact its all about conquest, guilt, shame and intolerance.

We need to have a Holy Spirit revival in this country.  I'm getting more sure every day that having one is the ONLY thing that is going to open our eyes, wake us up and get this nation turned around.  If we don't...then we can all just try and imagine what America will look like in another 5 or 10 years, if Jesus tarries.

Muslims Coming Back to Re Conquer Spain

As if Spain didn't have enough problems they are finding out that the Muslims that they have let into Spain did not come because they wanted to be Spaniards.  No, they have come to take back Spain as Muslim territory.

Remember that in Muslim thought, once territory has been taken by Muslims, it is eternally Muslim property.  So even if Spain hasn't been ruled by Muslims for 800 years, that doesn't matter.  On the Muslim map of the world, it is still theirs and just needs to be taken back one step at a time.

Watch video here;

Here in Minnesota we had Muslims protesting Target because the Muslim cashier didn't want to handle pork, we had Muslim cab drivers refuse to pick up airport passengers if they were carrying a bottle of alcohol, and now we have a Somali woman and her daughter that accepted Christ and the Somali community of Minneapolis has issued a fatwa on these women and they ran from their home in Minneapolis and are in hiding.

Again, I ask the obvious question, "If you want Minneapolis to be like Somalia, then why didn't you just stay in Somalia?" 

Of course the answer has little to do with logic and much to do about the spiritual warfare currently taking place in epic proportions.  Satan is the power behind Islam....and he is getting ready to gobble up the whole earth...and send his Antichrist to delude the nations.

It's getting closer....can you feel it?

All Aboard the Alien Ship!!

The deception continues to build as Satan gets ready to slam his trap shut...and then God sends a great delusion so that those who refused to believe the Gospel will believe the Antichrist's lies.

And here is some more "alien" chatter about people who are gathering and making plans to board the alien ship that will be coming about December 21 of know...when the Mayan calendar ends?

A mountain looming over a French commune with a population of just 200 is being touted as a modern Noah's Ark when doomsday arrives – supposedly less than nine months from now.

A rapidly increasing stream of New Age believers – or esoterics, as locals call them – have descended in their camper van-loads on the usually picturesque and tranquil Pyrenean village of Bugarach. They believe that when apocalypse strikes on 21 December this year, the aliens waiting in their spacecraft inside Pic de Bugarach will save all the humans near by and beam them off to the next age.

As the cataclysmic date – which, according to eschatological beliefs and predicted astrological alignments, concludes a 5,125-year cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar – nears, the goings-on around the peak have become more bizarre and ritualistic.

For decades, there has been a belief that Pic de Bugarach, which, at 1,230 metres, is the highest in the Corbières mountain range, possesses an eery power. Often called the "upside-down mountain" – geologists think that it exploded after its formation and the top landed the wrong way up – it is thought to have inspired Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Since the 1960s, it has attracted New Agers, who insist that it emits special magnetic waves.


Holy freak show!!  Man's rebellion from his Creator simply knows no bounds.  Here God gave us His clear Word through the Bible and all we need do is to seek Him and we will find Him...and yet we have people running around willing to listen to "aliens" and Satanic inspired Mayans who had a calendar...yet they REFUSE to read the Bible.

Why would someone be willing to listen to a voice from a medium and believe it as truth....but deny that the Bible has anything meaningful to tell them?  Why would anyone be willing to listen to an "alien" voice being channeled through a human and believe it?

Simple...mankind is depraved and our hearts are wicked to the core.  We would RATHER stumble down the wide road that leads to destruction than listen to the Voice of Truth.  It is much easier and appears to be more fun to follow our father, the devil.

Obama Overheard

If Obama wins the election this fall, many believe that he will be more free to reveal who he really is, meaning he could take off his mask. 

For instance, right now he knows he needs the Jewish vote to win so he tries to play nice with Israel...but after the election he may be more willing to throw Israel under the bus.

So what other things may Obama be planning to reveal after he is re elected that he doesn't want us to know about now?

SEOUL—President Barack Obama was overheard confiding to Russia's president that he would have to await his re-election before addressing the divisive issue of global missile defense, an unscripted moment that touched off a political backlash at home.

Mr. Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he can't resolve the issue before the November election, but that afterward, he would have more "flexibility." The comments were picked up by a live microphone.

Republicans seized on the exchange to suggest that Mr. Obama may talk tough during the campaign but then cave to Moscow once re-elected. They also questioned what else Mr. Obama has in store for a second term that he doesn't want to disclose now.

Mr. Obama is heard telling his counterpart that he needs time to resolve issues including U.S. plans for a missile defense system in Europe.

"This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility," Mr. Obama, in an implicit bit of confidence that he will win a second term.

Mr. Medvedev, who is about to turn the Russian presidency over to Vladimir Putin, replied: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir and I stand with you."


Holy deal maker!  Obama is passing a message to Gog of Magog! (aka Putin)  This simply can't be good for America in regards to the eternal promise made to Israel, "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you."

Yes, I know....we can't know for sure that Putin is Gog...but he certainly fits the description...and even the folks at Rapture Ready agree; 

I have long suspected that Vladimir Putin might be the Gog leader of Ezekiel 38 and 39. Putin's choice of Middle East friends has put him on a collision course with the state of Israel. I can just imagine Putin’s reaction if the nuclear reactor his nation just built for Iran were suddenly destroyed by an Israeli air raid. Of course, students of Bible prophecy know that the city of Damascus has a dire fate. Putin would certain fly into fit a rage if his buddy Assad suddenly vanished in a fireball, along with several of his elite military forces.

“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap” (Isaiah 17:1).

Putin obviously doesn't realize the danger he faces by becoming involved with Israel's Arab foes. The sons of Ishmael are driven by a demonic sibling rivalry and will stop at nothing to kill the children of Isaac. Since the actions of the Arabs reflect back on Putin, he has obligated himself to follow their lead.

There is nothing innocent about Putin's intentions. He is a very vain man, and I'm sure he has already considered the thought, "If I destroy Israel, the Arabs will praise me as the greatest leader of all time." The Word of God says that Gog will have a far different role. His purpose is to sanctify the Lord's name among the nations -- by having his army obliterated.


Friends, I hope you are ready for the world to be turned upside down...because all the players who have the potential to turn it have now been gathered on stage....including our own President Obama.

Israel Breaks Ties with UN Human Rights Council

The Bible tells us Israel will grow more and more isolated as the age of grace draws to a close.

Ultimately she won't have any friends or allies among the nations of the earth.  One day Russia, Turkey, Iran and some other Muslim states will gather their armies to take the wealth Israel has, but it won't go well for them as the God of Israel, Isaac and Jacob will stand and fight for He did in the ancient days.

This will be a huge turning point in the national identity of Israel and the mostly secular society currently living there will start to claim God as their God.

So today's headline is simply one more way that Israel is withdrawing from the rest of the world...and thereby being isolated.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, said the council "should be ashamed of itself" after its member states voted by 36 to one to appoint a mission to assess the impact of settlements on the Palestinian population. Only the United States voted against the resolution.

Although Israel is not a member of the council, officials in Jerusalem said that the country's ambassador to the body had been instructed not to answer the telephone if any of its officials rang. He has also been told not to attend any of its meetings.

Underlining the scale of its anger, Mr Netanyahu's government pledged not to cooperate with the mission and said its members would be denied permission to enter Israel or the West Bank.

The UN council has faced a torrent of criticism in recent weeks, with Russia and the Syrian government also accusing it of bias for resolutions condemning the Assad regime of human rights abuses in Syria.
Israel's criticisms go further, with officials in Mr Netanyahu's government saying that it has passed more than 30 resolutions aimed at the Jewish state in recent years.


It is almost laughable were it not so tragic,  that while Syria is butchering thousands, Iraq has chased out hundreds of thousands of Christians, Gaza militants have launched hundreds of rockets into Israel, and Egypt has just declared Israel as it's #1 enemy....and yet the UN Council decides to look into the "atrocities" of the Jews building houses in that is their land.

How many of you have the feeling of excitement as you watch all these headlines unfold? 

6 “I will strengthen Judah
and save the tribes of Joseph.
I will restore them
because I have compassion on them.
They will be as though
I had not rejected them,
for I am the LORD their God
and I will answer them.
  Zechariah 10:6

Our God is an awesome God!

Paul Harvey

We all remember the famous radio broadcaster named Paul Harvey?  He is the one who ends his show with, "And that is the rest of the story.  Good day!"

Back in 1965 Paul Harvey did a blurb on the radio where he pontificated about what he would do if he were the devil.

It's pretty darn interesting....because it sure seems that the devil has done just about everything Paul Harvey said he would do to tear apart the fabric of this country.

Listen here;
