Twilight's Last Gleaming

America is coming apart.  The moral decay, corruption, ignorance and greed can only get piled on for so long before it capsizes the whole boat.  And friends, the boat IS going to capsize....probably a lot sooner than anyone realizes.

So these are EXCITING days for Christians in America! 

Some might say, "Exciting?....these days are terrifying!  The nations are reeling, my bank account looks awful, I just lost my job, we are late on the mortgage, I have an ulcer, Obama is going to get re-elected, there is a war coming with Iran, earthquakes, tornadoes and solar storms are happening so of them is going to hit me soon!  How can you say these are exciting times?"

They are exciting for followers of Christ because WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD that Jesus left here on earth to illuminate the darkness until He returns.  And what is the best way to see a light? have it dark!!  It makes perfect sense!!  So as we see the darkness coming all around us, we need to be recharging our batteries, making sure the bulb is new, understanding where all the switches are and getting ready to be part of the great harvest of light!

If you need a great book to get excited about the coming darkness, spend $10 and buy the book TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING, HOW AMERICA'S LAST DAYS CAN BE YOUR BEST DAYS, by Robert Jeffress.

In the book, Jeffress uses the example of a jewelry store salesman.  When you go to the glass counter and ask to see a ring or bracelet, the first thing the salesman will do is set out a piece of black cloth and then will lay the ring on the cloth.  Of course the purpose of the black cloth is to make the jewel look so much more brilliant.  This world is that dark cloth. 

Sadly, in America and a few other Western nations, the world has become a nice, white cloth in our eyes.  We have so much wealth, luxury, homes and food stuffed into every grocery store that we have totally forgotten our mission here on earth.  And our ONLY mission is to go and make disciples of Jesus Christ to all nations.  Our ONLY mission is to snatch people from the fire.

So let's all ask ourselves if what Jeffress says applies to us, "In the same way, fear is not so much a problem itself as in indicator of something else wrong in your life.  Almost without exception anxiety is an indicator that we have built our lives around the temporal rather than the eternal.  When our sense of well-being in life depends on our net worth, our jobs, our health or our family, then we become fearful when those things are threatened."

Friends...are we fearful and anxious?  Or are we excited that this adulterous nation is about to come apart and we may get to play a really big role in leading people to Christ...because we have the answers to what they are missing? 

"The harvest is at hand and the workers are few," said Jesus.  Let's get ready to shine even brighter as the lights go out!!

Obama Born in Kenya?? Really??

This whole subject of Obama being born in Kenya simply will not die.  Now with the Sheriff in AZ on the cold case demanding that some of Obama's documents appear to be fraudulent...and AZ election official is threatening to keep Obama off the ballot in November unless more proof of his U.S. birth is forthcoming.

A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for verification of the information on Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the document that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s special investigative team has concluded may be a forgery.

You think things are interesting now....just wait and see what would happen if enough proof comes out to show Obama was actually born in Kenya and then was quickly put on a plane to Hawaii and made to look like he was born there.

If Obama can't run or is forced to step down as POTUS, you will see race riots that put the Trayvon Martin and Rodney King uprisings to shame.

"Love and Inclusion"

The Catholic church has been pretty vocal in it's defense of marriage being defined as "one man and one woman."  But there are now 80 ex-priests from the Minneapolis-St Paul diocese who are appear to be going against what the Catholic church is saying.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is getting no help from 80 ex-priests. Sasha Aslainian at MPR reports: "A group of 80 former Catholic priests on Thursday announced their opposition to the constitutional marriage amendment. The November ballot measure would define marriage as between one man and one woman, and is strongly supported by the Catholic Church. John Estrem, a former rector at the Cathedral of St. Paul who went on to head Catholic Charities, said the Church he knows is about love and inclusion. ‘As a Catholic and former priest, I encourage all to vote no on this amendment,’ Estrem said. ‘Enshrining discrimination does not promote marriage. It simply diminishes us all.’ ”


Interesting...the Church he knows is about love and inclusion...I thought the Gospel was about sin, repentance, forgiveness and salvation?

Oh well...I guess we can pretty much make up anything we want it to be.  Whatever makes US feel good is what we want from OUR CHURCH. 

Hey Mr. Estrem....if I want to marry my pet chimp who I happen to be having sexual relations with....can you love and include me in your church's marriage statement??   Bongo and me are so sick of people telling us that we are wrong in our love for each other and saying that our relationship isn't "normal."  How could anything that feels so right possible be wrong?

Hey Mr. Estrem....I'm bisexual and I am in love with, and having sex with, a wonderful man AND a wonderful woman.  All three of us want to get married and start having and adopting kids.  Isn't that wonderful!!!  I am so happy that your church is going to love and include us in our marriage choices.  We are simply sick of people telling us that what we want isn't normal.  If it makes us could anything be wrong with our behavior?

How tragic?....I think lots of folks are going to be sadly surprised when they find out that they never had the Holy Spirit in them.  If they did they wouldn't be trying to satisfy and gratify every natural urge that comes across their minds....and demanding that everyone else ACCEPT, SUPPORT AND EMBRACE every perverse thought that comes to their mind.

What About the Federal Reserve?

I am convinced that less than 1 in a million Americans have ANY idea about the history, purpose or actions of the Federal Reserve.  How could that be when they have such ENORMOUS power over all of our lives?  Answer;  because as long as something seems to be working...don't question it.

The same thing was being said about Bernie Madoff near the end of his Ponzi scheme. 

Investor #1;  "Hey, have you been getting 20% returns on your investments with Madoff even though the market has been going down...and his statements only seem to come out on his company letterhead?"  Investor #2:  "Don't worry about it and quit picking at it!  Just be happy you are getting 20% returns and keep piling in money whenever you get more!"

The Federal Reserve is NOT Federal and it's not a Reserve.  It is simply one other SYSTEM OF MAN that has been orchestrated by the Evil Powers of this World to bring us ever closer to the New World Order.  The funny thing is that the Evil Power isn't even really hiding it.  Pull out your wallet, turn over a $1 bill and see the pyramid with the ALL SEEING EYE and read the Latin, NOVUS ORDO translates to "A new order for the ages."

"Yeah, but also says 'In God we Trust.'"

What God is it that most Americans who handle those bills every day REALLY have trust in?  Probably the god of Mammon...and NOT the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

1913 -- The Federal Reserve (neither federal nor a reserve) is created. It was planned at a secret meeting in 1910 on Jekyl Island, Georgia by a group of bankers and politicians, including Col. House. This transferred the power to create money from the American government to a private group of bankers. It is probably the largest generator of debt in the world.

Wow!  Sounds sneaky and sounds like a power grab that our founding fathers would have rolled over in their graves to learn about.

In 1913, prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act President Wilson's The New Freedom was published, in which he revealed:

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Wow! President Wilson felt it. There is a power somewhere so organized?....sounds like Satan who is the Prince of the Powers of the earth.

"Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws.”
Baron M.A. Rothschild

Friends....who were (and are?) the original shareholders of the Federal Reserve when it was first put on the books?

ROTHSCHILD:  London and Berlin
KUHN-LOEB CO.:  Germany
WARBURG:  Hamburg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Interesting....the first shareholder mentioned is Baron Rothschild...who knows that when he controls the currency then laws and constitutions will simply cease to matter.  And of course it certainly appears that "foreign powers" were behind this power grab.

Also interesting is that the Federal Reserve in the past 4 years has cooked a bubble of debt and paper so large that I believe when it collapses....AMERICA WILL HAVE NO CHOICE but to be put in the NEW WORLD ORDER financial system....because we have squandered our blessings, we have broken our faith with God and this world is getting all of it's ducks in a row to be ruled by the ALL OF THESE THINGS MUST HAPPEN.

Even so....PLEASE COME LORD JESUS!  And if YOU do decide to tarry, please give us the strength to endure the trials that will come.  Amen.

Here Comes the Sunstorm

Yes, we know the sun is in an exceedingly volatile state.  We know that the sun goes through cycles that can spit out massive solar storms...and we also know that there was a HUGE solar storm back in 1859 known as the Carrington event.  That solar storm was so huge that campers in the mountains of Colorado reported that it was so bright in the middle of the night, due to the massive northern lights display, that they started breaking camp because they thought it was morning.

But in 1859 the nation didn't even have electricity so it really didn't affect the horse drawn culture which was in use.

But what if a storm of that magnitude were to happen today?

The sun is expected to hit a peak eruption period in 2013, and while superstorms don't always occur in peak periods, some warn of a disaster. John Kappenman, a consultant and former power engineer who has spent decades researching the storms, says the modern power grid isn't hardened for the worst nature has to offer. He says an extreme storm could cause blackouts lasting weeks or months, leaving major cities temporarily uninhabitable and taking a massive economic toll.

"This is arguably the largest natural-disaster scenario that the nation could face," said Mr. Kappenman.


Ouch!  Having our major cities blacked out for weeks or months would be a MAJOR problem...not just because of the anarchy...but imagine the blow to the U.S. economy if not one single worker were able to show up to work for months!  Do you think such an event might collapse the value of our dollar?

To me, this is just one more piece of evidence that God is trying to warn man of his folly in believing that HE is able to control his own destiny.  Volcanoes can not be quenched, earthquakes can not be stopped, tsunamis can't not be controlled, tornadoes can not be put back in the clouds...the lists goes on and on.

But instead of helpless man turning back to his creator and humbling himself in front of Almighty God....we just continue to believe that we have everything under control.  Who needs God??

Is the World About to Unravel?

The bank runs have started in Greece.  We are guessing they may soon start running in Spain.  We simply don't know what it is going to look like if  all of Europe starts to unravel.  We are guessing that if you were a European citizen, you would be trying to figure out where the "least worst" place really is...and you would try to get your money into that country and its banking system.

If that is true, then we will expect the people of Europe to start removing their money from poor countries and try to get them into German banks.

Remember friends, the Bible clearly tells us that there will be some type of 10-nation coalition that will rise out of Europe in the very last days.  The Antichrist will then come out of some 11th nation and will gain control of the other 10.  So the Bible clearly says that the Euro will have to come apart in some way to shed most of the nations that are currently in it.

May 16, 2012 ATHENSThe bank runs that we are watching right now in Greece are shocking, but they are only just the beginning. Since May 6th, nearly one billion dollars has been withdrawn from Greek banks. For a small nation like Greece, that is an absolutely catastrophic number. At this point, the entire Greek banking system is in danger of collapsing. If you had money in a Greek bank, why wouldn’t you pull it out? If Greece leaves the euro, all euros in Greek banks will likely be converted to drachmas, and the value of those drachmas will almost certainly decline dramatically. In fact, it has been estimated that Greek citizens could see the value of their bank accounts decline by up to 50 percent if Greece leaves the euro. So if you had money in a Greek bank, it would only make sense to withdraw it and move it to another country as quickly as possible. And as the eurozone begins to unravel, this is a scenario that we are going to see play out in country after country. As member nations leave the eurozone, you would be a fool to have your euros in Italian banks or Spanish banks when you could have them in German banks instead. So the bank runs that are happening in Greece right now are only a preview of things to come. Before this crisis is over we are going to see bank runs happening all over Europe. A Greek exit from the euro would not only result in a run on Spanish and Italian bonds, but it would also likely result in a run on Spanish and Italian banks. Meanwhile, banks in other troubled European nations are already on shaky ground. The Spanish banking system is an absolute disaster zone at this point and on Monday night Moody’s downgraded the credit ratings of 26 Italian banks. The situation in Italy is especially worth keeping a close eye on. As Ambrose Evans-Pritchard recently noted, things are not looking good for Italy at all: Italy’s former premier Romano Prodi said the EU risks instant contagion to Spain, Italy, and France if Greece leaves. “The whole house of cards will come down”, he said. Angelo Drusiani from Banca Albertini said the only way to avert catastrophe is to convert the European Central Bank into a lender of last resort. Otherwise Italy faces “massive devaluation, three to five years of hyperinflation, and unbearable unemployment.” –ETF Daily


Can you begin to imagine the unrest that will take place when this massive social system begins to come apart?  How many people in Western civilization have any idea how to care for themselves if all the FREE HOUSING, FREE FOOD, FREE HEALTH CARE, FREE TRANSPORTATION programs suddenly come to a grinding halt?

Will a truck full of food be able to drive through Athens on it's way to it's destination if the people of Athens are hungry?

Would a truck full of food be able to drive through Kansas City on it's way to Minneapolis if our Food Stamp program becomes worthless?

Why Are the Bees Vanishing?

We have posted on the disappearance of bees, called Colony Collapse, in the past.  Remember that Albert Einstein said that if the bees vanish from planet earth that mankind will only have 4 years left to survive.  Why?  Bees pollinate so much of the foods that we eat and the foods that the animals eat..and we eat those animals.

It's back in the news again because scientists seem to have no idea why the bees continue to vanish.

To all of the readers who don’t think that honey bees are one of the most important concerns of our modern times, let me admit that I know where you’re coming from. I wasn’t the sort of kid who played in the dirt. I was terrified of insects (ew! bugs!), and never forgot my first run-in with a bee that stung me on my sacred pillow as a toddler. But if you eat food and if you enjoy flowers, then you need to pay attention to this.

Honey bees are of vital importance, and their declining populations are an incredibly critical issue. As pollinators, they are responsible for over 130 different fruit and vegetable crops that we eat. As an economic commodity, the cost of some of these crops has already increased because the numbers of honey bees has gone down. This basic supply and demand tilt has already impacted the over $15 billion dollar industry.
Historical context

Honey bees are dying. This is a global phenomenon and a worldwide problem affecting food availability. Like climate change, the decline of honey bees is not unprecedented. There were great die offs of honey bees reported as early as the year 950 A.D. in Ireland, called the “Great Mortality of Bees”. This repeated in Ireland is 992 and 1443. The great die-off crossed the pond in 1903 when 2,000 colonies died in Cache Valley, Utah. Three years later, 100% of hives died on the Isle of Wight, UK. And then, in 1996 and again in 2006, Pennsylvania beekeepers reported alarming numbers of honey bee die offs. These die-offs are continuing today, but under the auspice of a new name, Colony Collapse Disorder.

Researchers still don’t know why honey bees are disappearing. The strangest part of this story is the lack of dead bodies, vanishing into thin air. They’re simply gone. Some of the world’s best researchers, from the USDA to the European Union, are working diligently to solve this mystery. But as any stellar sleuth knows, a mystery is always harder to solve without a body.


What we do know is that during the Tribulation that millions of people will die of starvation.  Could it be that the lack of bees is going to contribute to the famine that is coming?

"Winged Being" Caught on Camera?

We have no idea (and neither does the author) if this video is true...but if someone was trying to set up a hoax they sure went to a lot of detail.

The video was taken from a security camera in Indonesia on September 11, 2011.  You can see what looks like some type of being with super bright wings that drops from the sky onto the floor and then quickly jumps out of camera range.  Right after that you can see the security guards running with flashlights to the vicinity to investigate what made that strange flash of light.

Watch it here;

Of course the Bible talks about cherubim and seraphim and the book of Enoch talks about another angelic race called the ophanim.  So what might those creatures look like when they enter into our 3 dimensional world?  Could one of them have been caught on this serveilance video?

You will need to watch it and decide for yourselves, but I am getting more and more convinced that Satan is getting ready to snap a HUGE trap of deception on the humans of earth.  Could some of his fallen angels be entering our dimension to further prep the ground?  If strange creatures do show up with the ability to call down fire from heaven in plain sight of men...might we all accept their story as truth...might any of those left behind to witness an event such as this be prone to believe EVERYTHING they say....even if it contradicts the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

"The coming of the lawless one (Antichrist) will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil the deceives those who are perishing."  2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

California Facing $16 Billion Shortfall

California is a foreshadowing of what is coming for the rest of us.  They thought they were facing a $9 billion problem and they just announced it's far worse than what they thought.

The Democratic governor said the shortfall grew from $9.2 billion in January in part because tax collections have not come in as high as expected and the economy isn't growing as fast as hoped for. The deficit has also risen because lawsuits and federal requirements have blocked billions of dollars in state cuts.

"This means we will have to go much farther and make cuts far greater than I asked for at the beginning of the year," Brown said in an online video. "But we can't fill this hole with cuts alone without doing severe damage to our schools. That's why I'm bypassing the gridlock and asking you, the people of California, to approve a plan that avoids cuts to schools and public safety."

The governor is expected to propose a contingency plan with a list of unpopular cuts that would kick in automatically if voters reject tax hikes this fall. In January, he said they would result in a K-12 school year shortened by up to three weeks, higher college tuition fees and reduced funding for courts.


Remember how we just heard that the police in Greece were not showing up when called?  Now understand the same thing is going to start happening in California when public safety is cut.  Also remember that California had to release about 40% of its felons already due to overcrowding and budget constraints.

How much incentive will the police have to arrest anyone when their pay is being cut, their pensions are disappearing and the criminals they arrest are going to be released anyway?

College Costs Hobble a Generation

We already know that college student loans in America are now equal to all outstanding credit card debt...which approaches a trillion dollars.

A couple of questions for you....what happens when millions of college kids have billions of dollars that they can't repay? And a follow up question....what happens when millions of college kids can't find (or won't find) a job and start to get upset with "the system"?

Of course OCCUPY WALL STREET is just the start of what will happen.

We have been saying for some time now that easy money into ANY segment of the economy will cook a bubble and we all know that bubbles eventually all have to pop.

We may be close to the popping part.

With more than $1 trillion in student loans outstanding in this country, crippling debt is no longer confined to dropouts from for-profit colleges or graduate students who owe on many years of education, some of the overextended debtors in years past. Today, nearly everyone pursuing a bachelor’s degree is borrowing. As prices soar, a college degree statistically remains a good lifetime investment, but it often comes with an unprecedented financial burden.

“If one is not thinking about where this is headed over the next two or three years, you are just completely missing the warning signs,” said Rajeev V. Date, deputy director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the federal watchdog created after the financial crisis.

Much like the mortgage brokers who promised pain-free borrowing to homeowners a few years back, many colleges don’t offer warnings about student debt in the glossy brochures and pitch letters mailed to prospective students. Instead, reading from the same handbook as for-profit colleges, they urge students not to worry about the costs. That is because most students don’t pay full price.

Hagan, 23, is also a college student. She will graduate shortly from Malone University, an evangelical college in Canton, Ohio, with more than $65,000 in student debt (among her loans is one from a farm lender; she had to plant a garden to become eligible). Although she makes $60,000 a year as a state representative, she plans to begin waiting tables in the next few weeks at Don Pancho’s, a Mexican restaurant in Alliance, Ohio, to help pay down her student loans and credit cards. She pays about $1,000 a month.


$1000 per month for student loans for the next 15-20 years? Honestly...what were these kids thinking? Honestly....what were the adults thinking that let them sign on the dotted line and told them everything would be OK after they got a degree?

More Wall Street fraud and stupidity all the way around. We will all feel this bubble when it pops.
