Black Pastors Say to Withold Support for Obama

An influential group of black pastors is urging black Christians to shelve their support of President Barack Obama until he reverses his position favoring same-sex marriage.

The Coalition of African American Pastors last month requested a meeting with Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss how Obama had “broken [their] hearts” when he endorsed same-sex marriage as a civil right. Having received no White House response, the 1,300-member organization is calling on blacks to boycott the president, the Washington Examiner reported.

“By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” coalition president Rev. William Owens said in a statement. “The Black Church has always been the conscience of America, and today we are calling on black pastors and black Christians to withhold support from President Obama until he corrects course.”


Isn't it crazy how the homosexual crowd has hitched their wagon to the civil rights movement?  What in the world does your BEHAVIOR have to do with your skin color?  You can't CHOOSE your skin color but you CAN CHOOSE your behavior...more specifically who you choose to sleep with. 

Normalizing Pedophelia

We said it from the beginning....if you can make everyone believe that all homosexuals are "born this way"...and if you are born this way it is impossible to change....and if it's impossible to change then we have to act on our desires....the homosexual community has now successfully transitioned all of society (including President Obama) from believing homosexuality is a perversion to believing it should be celebrated.

So if the gays can use that argument about all the people out there who are born with the desire to have sex with little kids?  How about all the married men who are born with the desire to have sex with other women?  How about bi sexual people who were born with the desire to have sex with both sexes....shouldn't they be allowed to marry one man and one woman?  Why stop with one partner?  How about allowing groups of people who love to screw each other and claim to be in love....shouldn't they be allowed to form families by getting married?

It looks like that is exactly what's coming.

Do people who rape children, or fantasize about sexually abusing them, deserve sympathy – because they were born with the brains of pedophiles?

That’s the question a prominent scientist and a well-known anchor at CNN have asked in the wake of the recent Jerry Sandusky scandal.

CNN recently featured a story by James Cantor, a homosexual psychologist and scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health who serves as associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
“It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children,” he wrote in his CNN piece.

He continued, “Cases of child molestation that involve long strings of victims over the course of years illustrate what can happen when someone gives in to, or outright indulges, his sexual interests, regardless of its potential damage on others. It is those cases that dominate headlines and provoke revulsion toward pedophiles.

“But they are rare. An untold number of cases merit sympathy.

“The science suggests that they are people who, through no fault of their own, were born with a sex drive that they must continuously resist, without exception, throughout their entire lives. Little if any assistance is ever available for them.”


Yes...since they were born this way, the poor things need our sympathy...and if we can offer them our sympathy then maybe we can one day help them to find outlets for their sexual desires...maybe by connecting them with 18 year olds who LOOK LIKE they are 10 years old?  Or maybe we should lower the age for consensual sex down to 12 or 14....I mean really, most 14 year olds are having sex why should it be a crime for a man to have sex with her if she asks for it?  And very soon, someone will bring up the idea that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was most likely only 14 when she was

You see where this is going?

Isn't it interesting how lost society can become without Jesus Christ at the center of it?  Doesn't it seem like God is simply giving us over to the perversion that we desire as a society?

When a society sows incredible amounts of porn, and not just man on woman porn, but gay porn, fetish porn, child porn, animal will reap perversion.  The whole idea of reaping what you sow is a biblical principal.  If we use today's language we might say, "Garbage in...garbage out."

It's coming like a flood....

Finland Threatens to Leave Euro

The world has been wondering what the heck is going to happen if a tiny, crappy-economy country (like Greece) leaves the Euro zone.  But what if a prosperous country, like Finland, decides to leave while the getting is good?

Uh-oh...that would be bad.

The Finns just dropped a bomb in the lap of the Euro zone leaders and changed the terms of the debate over Europe’s future. In an interview with a leading Helsinki daily, today, Finance Minister, Jutta Urpilainen, said that Finland would be prepared to leave the Euro rather than take responsibility for other countries debts and risks. She has also made clear she will seek collateral from Spain before committing to the bailout. That move is likely to bring just the humiliation Spain sought to avoid.

Prior to last week’s Euro summit in Brussels, the Germans, French, Spaniards and Italians met to discuss possible solutions to the Italian and Spanish debt crises. By believing that Germany and France alone hold the solution to these problems, the big four will have antagonized smaller countries whose skin is as much in this game as theirs. Finland just fought back.


Yep, the nations sure are shaking.  No one has any clue how to make it stop...and few are willing to consider that they need the God to fix the enormous problems they have made for themselves.  If mankind doesn't humble ourselves and pray to God to heal our sure seems like this gig is about up.

20 Biblical Signs That We Are in the Last Days

I am about half way through Joel Rosenberg's latest book titled IMPLOSION.  Of course I would highly recommend the book as pretty much everything Rosenberg writes is really good.  Plus it just confirms a lot of things that we already know...and confirmation in a crazy world is always good to get.

On page 76, Rosenberg lists the twenty signs that the Bible tells us we will see in the last days.  I thought it was an awesome list so will share it with you here.

1. Wars and rumors of wars
2. Uprisings and revolutions and kingdoms being shaken
3. Famines
4. Earthquakes
5. Pestilences and plagues
6. Terrors and growing fears
7. Great signs in the heavens and bloodred moons
8. The roaring of the sea and the waves
9. Persecution of the church
10. Apostasy of the church
11. Betrayal
12. Lawlessness
13. False prophets and false teachers
14. False messiahs
15. Increase in knowledge and travel
16. The state of Israel being reborn and increasingly becoming the epicenter of international attention
17. The Gospel being preached to every nation
18. A spiritual awakening in Israel among the Jewish people
19. A spiritual awakening in Iran
20. An increase in mockery of Bible prophecy

Wow, that's pretty cool.  If you take a truthful look at this list and reflect back over the past hundred years, it would be near impossible to NOT understand that the events on this list are happening with more frequency and a quickening tempo.

#19 is especially cool because we did a posting yesterday on dreams and visions and the thousands of Iranians who are turning their lives over to Christ on a daily basis.

#15 is also especially timely as the news that has just come out in the past few days that scientist have 'discovered' the 'god particle' that explains how all mass is possible.  Also the news that has just come out that scientists are making strange flesh like babies with 3 parents and pigs who have been 'manufactured' to have human blood and/or grow human organs.

So look over this list, or better yet, print it and carry it in your wallet or purse.  Be ready to ask people if they feel like there is something big going on in the world..and if they answer in the affirmative then ask them if they believe it is related to what the Bible told us to watch for.

The Holy Spirit is using prophecy to awaken this sleepy country.  Those who are perishing will fall further into a deep sleep and will increase the mockery of prophecy, just like #20 says.  But those in whom the Holy Spirit has been plowing the ground may take your words and run like the wind with them.

Watch and pray for the people whom Christ is putting in your life.  Be sensitive and be bold.  The harvest is at hand!

Genetically Modified Babies are Born

When the Bible says that a man is joined to a woman and the two shall become's pretty obvious that a sexual union has taken place...and that sexual union MAY lead to the woman's egg getting fertilized by the man's sperm.  That's how it works in God's economy.

Of course science isn't always paying attention to God's plan and when they don't use the "3rd lens" of scripture...they can go too far.

Friends, it would appear science has gone too far on this one.

The world's first genetically modified humans have been created, it was revealed last night.

The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three 'parents'.

Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one experimental programme at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an attempt to enable them to conceive.

Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults --two women and one man.

Read more:

So what the heck is baby called that IS NOT caused by the union of a man and a woman?  These kids technically are made up of the DNA of THREE PEOPLE!!

Have they already started experimenting with beings made up of one woman, one man and one pig?  How about one lion, one tiger and one alligator?  How about one fallen angel and one human woman?

Friends...we are making strange flesh.  We are past tinkering in God's domain...we are perverting it.

How long until God says, "Enough!"?

"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God (created beings who fell with Satan) went to the daughters of men and had children by them."  Genesis 6:4  So these fallen angels were making strange flesh to pervert the natural creation of God.

Many prophecy watchers believe that the strange flesh being made by these fallen angels, encouraged by Satan, was the reason for the flood that destroyed everything.  I happen to be one of them that believes this is exactly what happened.

"He'll Get the Message to Them Somehow"

The prophet Joel told us to watch for it...and the Apostle Paul also told us to watch for it;  "I will pour out my Spirit on all people.  Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."  Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17

In just one further sign that seems to point to the fact that we are in the Last Days, (maybe the VERY Last Days?) we continue to hear about Muslims having dreams and visions that lead them to salvation in Jesus Christ.

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Several years ago, Ali took the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca known as Hajj.
"Of course when I went to Mecca I was going there in order to pay hommage to the Kabba and to fulfill the requirements in Islam," he recalled.

But the trip became more of a spiritual journey than he could ever imagine.

"That night I saw Jesus in a dream. First, Jesus touched my forehead with his finger. And after touching me, He said, 'You belong to me,'" Ali recalled.

"And then He touched me above my heart," he continued. "'You have been saved, follow me. You belong to me,' he said."

Doyle and his wife Joanna take the gospel to the Muslim world. He's also the author of the upcoming book, Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?

"I think our God is a fair God, that He's righteous and just, and people are seeking and they don't know where to go," Doyle said.

"Maybe they don't have a Bible, maybe there's no missionary in the village," he said. "He'll get the message to them somehow."

The phenomenon of dreams and visions has surfaced throughout the Muslim world, from Indonesia to Morocco.

"In the church if you ask how many people came to Christ, 80 percent will say, 'I saw Him in a dream,'" one woman in central Asia told CBN News. Her identity is being protected for security reasons.

Friends...the harvest is at hand and the workers are few, says JESUS IS DOING ALL THE WORK HIMSELF.  If the Gospel hasn't made it to that corner of the world or to that specific village or person, Jesus is just showing up and telling them that HE is the only way to salvation.

Praise God!!

We have posted about this in the past, so here is a link to one post that we did back on April 30, 2009 that you may find interesting.

U.S. Quietly Moves Military Into Persian Gulf

USA says nothing is off the table when dealing with Iran....Iran says if attacked they will wipe out Israel and seriously damage American bases in the Gulf we have America sliding some serious weapons and military power right onto the shores of Iran.

This could get interesting in a hurry.

US military quietly moves large reinforcements into Persian Gulf

Move seen as deterence measure to prevent Iran from blocking the Strait of Hormuz and increases number of fighter jets in region capable of hitting deep into Iran • Iran state TV reports Revolutionary Guard launches several missiles in military exercise, including those that can hit U.S. warships in the gulf.
The U.S. has discreetly moved considerable military reinforcements into the Persian Gulf to deter the Iranian military from any possible attempt to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, The New York Times reported on Tuesday. The reinforcements also increase the number of fighter jets capable of striking deep into Iran if the standoff over its nuclear program escalates.
The deployments, according to the Times, are part of a long-planned effort by the U.S. to bolster its military presence in region, in part to reassure Israel that when confronting Iran, as one senior administration official put it last week, "When the president says there are other options on the table beyond negotiations, he means it."
The military build-up, however, which comes on the heels of increasing economic pressure on Iran, carries significant risks, including provoking Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to lash out against the greater U.S. military presence.
Featured most prominently in the enhanced U.S. build-up are ships that are designed to vastly improve the Navy's ability to patrol the Strait of Hormuz — and to reopen the narrow waterway should Iran attempt to mine it to prevent Saudi Arabia and other oil exporters from sending tankers through.
Like kids pushing each other on the playground...the pushes are getting harder, the bellicose warnings are getting long will it be until someone throws the first punch?  And how long might the fight go before the teachers come onto the playground and break it up?

Iran Threatens USA

We know that the U.S. and Israel have both said repeatedly when asked about stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions, "We have taken nothing off the table."

Of course if you were Iran, you clearly understand what this means....if sanctions won't work to make you stop cooking nuke material then we will come in with Plan B, meaning military force.

So now Iran is throwing out some threats of it's own.  Yesterday a big general in Iran said that if Western powers hit Iran, then Iran will welcome the opportunity to use that attack as a reason to wipe Israel from the face of the earth.

Today we have an Iranian General issuing threats of what will happen to America if Iran is attacked.

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s semi-official news agency Fars is reporting the country can destroy nearby U.S. military bases and strike Israel within minutes of an attack on the Islamic Republic.

The Wednesday report quotes Gen. Ami Ali Hajizadeh of the powerful Revolutionary Guards as saying U.S. bases, and Israel — which he referred to as “occupied territories” — are in range of Iran’s missiles and could be struck as a retaliatory measure.

"Measures have been taken so that we could destroy all these bases in the early minutes of an attack,” said Hajizadeh, chief of the Guards’ airspace division.

Iran and the West are at odds over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and neither Israel nor the U.S. have ruled out a military strike on the country if diplomacy fails to stop its nuclear program.


Some military analysts insist that Iran has a big bark but not as big a bite as they want folks to believe...meaning that if Israel and America both decide to team up on should be a rather one sided event in favor of America and Israel.

But let's remember that the U.S. military has now openly welcomed perversion into it's ranks, has created space in it's Christian chapels for Islam and pagan worship, and has been openly turning from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Will God continue to bless America and the most powerful military force the world has ever seen?  Will a war with Iran be easily one sided in favor of America?....or could this be one other example of how limited American power really is as evidenced in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Remember, Israel and Iran are both mentioned players in the Last Days as laid out in the Bible....but America is no where to be found.

Iran Test Fires Missile That Can Reach Israel

How much longer can Israel afford to wait?

DUBAI - Iran said on Tuesday it had successfully tested medium-range missiles capable of hitting Israel as a response to threats of attack, the latest move in a war of nerves with the West.

Israel says it could attack Iran if diplomacy fails to secure a halt to its disputed nuclear energy program. The United States also has military force as a possible option but has repeatedly encouraged the Israelis to be patient while new economic sanctions are implemented against Iran.

The Islamic Republic announced the "Great Prophet 7" missile exercise on Sunday after a European embargo against Iranian crude oil purchases took full effect following another fruitless round of big power talks with Tehran.

Iran's official English-language Press TV said the Shahab 3 missile with a range of 1,300 km (800 miles) - able to reach Israel - was tested along with the shorter-range Shahab 1 and 2.

"The main aim of this drill is to demonstrate the Iranian nation's political resolve to defend vital values and national interests," Revolutionary Guards Deputy Commander Hossein Salami was quoted by Press TV as saying.


So is Iran bluffing?  Do they really have a big missile that they could put a nuclear warhead on and make Israel vanish from the face of the earth?  Can Israel afford to risk it? 

Remember, they sat around in Germany and Europe listening to Hitler's rhetoric about the Third Reich which included the elimination of the Jews...and they never believed it would happen...until the barb wire went up and the German army closed up the Jews in their neighborhoods.

Then it was too late...and they vowed they would NEVER let it happen again.

American Weakness is Dangerous

For all the imperfections that America has, certainly we do realize that America is the world's last best hope.  Think about it, what do you think the world would have looked like if Hitler had won?  How about if the Japanese Imperial Army had won?  What if Russia ruled the world??  How about China??

We can see how China and Russia treat their citizens and how dark and depressing they can be.

So what happens if America simply loses it's ability to pay for our aircraft carriers and our fancy drones and missiles?  What if China refuses to loan us the money that we desperately need to keep paying for our military?

Ex Secretary Rumsfeld is sounding the alarm that American weakness, or ever the perception of weakness, will be dangerous for planet earth.

Former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, in a rare public speech, warned that American military and financial weakness is creating a more dangerous and unstable world.

Rumsfeld also said the U.S. government, both Congress and the executive branch, is dysfunctional and ill-suited for the information age. He called for creating a blue-ribbon commission to modernize the administrative functions of government agencies and institutions in both branches.

The former defense secretary during the George W. Bush administration said he was asked recently what keeps him awake at night.

“What I worry about most today is American weakness,” Rumsfeld told a conference of congressional staff members and former government officials hosted by the Defense Forum Foundation on Capitol Hill.

“The signal of weakness is a dangerous one,” he said.


Rumsfeld also expressed concerns about Turkey’s government, which in recent months has arrested numerous military officers as the Islamist-oriented government in Ankara sought to limit military influence.

“Turkey has arrested and thrown in jail a lot of military personnel,” Rumsfeld said. “A lot of them have very strong NATO relations. That puts up a caution flag.”


We know that Turkey is moving further away from the Western democracy model and for the last 5-6 years has been moving closer to the Russian and Iranian camp....just like Ezekiel 38 says that they will.

Remember, America isn't mentioned in any Last Days prophecy.  Most Watchers believe that when the church is raptured (which removes the Holy Spirit) that America will be the single most affected nation on earth...and that the loss of millions of people in the twinkling of an eye will simply be too devastating to our financial system....and the greatest nation on earth will be done.

When this happens, Israel will soon realize that their protector is gone...and so will Russia, Iran and Turkey...and they will get an evil thought to go in an take all of Israel's gas, oil, and minerals from the Dead Sea believing that no one will be able to stop them.

But as you read the story you will soon figure out that the God of Israel, Isaac and Jacob has other plans.

Face Eating Zombie in China

A few weeks ago we had a raft of zombie-like behavior here in the USA....and now yesterday we posted of a dude in Texas killing and eating a dog.  What???

As one reader told me, "Quit posting this zombie stuff...I'm getting queasy!"

Yes, I get it.  I would love to quit posting it...but it just keeps jumping out of the headlines at me.

Today, we find out that this face eating behavior is not just in America but seems to have jumped to China.

A woman has been hospitalized in China after a drunken bus driver allegedly attacked her and began gnawing on her face.

The woman, identified as "Du," was driving near a bus station in Wenzhou on Tuesday when a man ran into the street, blocking her car. The man, a bus driver identified as "Dong," allegedly climbed onto the hood of Du's car and began hitting the windshield, according to the Malaysia Chronicle.

Du got out of the car, and allegedly Dong tackled her to the ground, where he began chewing on her face, according to Shanghai Daily. Witnesses say they attempted to pull Dong off of her, but were unable to do so.

Doctors say Dong did enough damage to the woman's face that she will need plastic surgery to repair her nose and lips.


Remember the days when people used to get drunk and put a lampshade on their head and dance around the room believing they were the life of the party??  Apparently, some drunks now prefer to gnaw on faces.

So what makes a drunk Chinese bus driver stop a woman in her car and chew on her face?

I seriously wonder if there is some really strange demon that has been unleashed on earth who gains access to unsaved folks when they open their minds to it while using strange drugs and alcohol?

Man Bites Then Eats Dog

The stories are just getting stranger as the days go by.  I believe this is accomplishing the purpose of making all of us 'hate this life,' which makes us long for the life which is to come.

Michael Daniel, 22, allegedly smoked spice in his Waco, Texas home before he assaulted his housemates and then ran out of the house into his yard, where he began crawling around on his hands and knees. He barked and growled at a neighbor and chased him back into his home.

Daniel then allegedly took his housemate's dog, a medium-sized spaniel mix, out onto the house's porch. He allegedly beat and strangled the dog, according to Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton, and then began chewing "hunks of flesh" from the animal.

Daniel's housemates called police and requested emergency assistance, saying Daniel was "going crazy." Officers arrived at the house to find Daniel sitting on the porch with "blood and fur around his mouth" and with the dead dog lying in his lap, Swanton said.

Daniel, who police say told his housemates he was "on a bad trip" just before the alleged rampage on June 14, was charged on Monday with cruelty to a non-livestock animal.


"They think they're dying," Louisiana Poison Control Center Director Dr. Mark Ryan told ABC News. "They have extreme paranoia. They're having hallucinations. They see things, they hear things, monsters, demons, aliens."


Monsters, demons and aliens??  Here's a thought...what if they actually are seeing Satanic things...and this drug is opening up their mind so that they truly are seeing into the 4th dimension....the place where monsters, demons and aliens are all lined up just waiting to break into the 3rd dimension...where we currently live?

This zombie-like behavior is really freaky.  So do you think this behavior is going to get more frequent or less frequent as the world marches toward The Tribulation?

Lord, have mercy.

"Derecho" Slams Washington D.C.

Probably just a coincidence here (sarcasm)...but isn't it interesting that Washington D.C. was hit by an earthquake (VERY rare) last year as our leaders were dispatched to Israel to threaten them to give up more land for peace to the Palestinians?

In the same way, it's probably just a coincidence that all these fires and heat have swept the country since Obama became our first president to confirm, ordain and encourage the perversion of homosexuality.  Gay Pride reception right in the White House....really?

Yesterday, a rare 'Derecho' hit the D.C. area and killed 5 people and wiped out power to millions...also just a coincidence.

The system of thunderstorms that ravaged the Washington, D.C., area over the weekend, leaving 1.2 million homes without power and killing at least five people, was not only destructive — it was also rare.

Known as a derecho, the string of storms combined intense lightning and rain with hurricane-force gusts as it swept from the Midwest into the mid-Atlantic on Friday night. Meteorologists blamed the violent weather on the prolonged 100-plus temperatures that blanketed the eastern United States last week.

Derechos typically form when an atmospheric disturbance lifts the warm air in regions experiencing intense heat, causing thunderstorms and hurricane-force winds to develop, AccuWeather meteorologist Brian Edwards said. Traveling at an average speed of 60 miles per hour, Friday's storm took 12 hours to cover more than 700 miles before reaching the Atlantic Ocean.

By Monday, power had been restored in more than half of the homes affected by the storms in the Washington metropolitan area. But utilities predict that the roughly 660,000 homes still without power may remain so for the next several days as the heat wave continues unabated.

Ken Barber, vice president for customer solutions at Dominion Virginia Power, told ABC's affiliate WJLA that the utility is facing the "biggest non-hurricane outage in our 100 year history."

All told, about 3 million homes lost power, 12 people lost their lives, and another 20 people were injured. The governors of Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia, and the mayor of Washington, D.C., declared states of emergency.


Holy spanish-word-for-'straight'!!  That's one crazy derecho...and it is really rare...and it was the biggest non-hurricane outage in Virigina Power's history!  That's a whole lot of folks sitting in 100 degree heat with no AC or refrigeration.

But still..not one person in 50 will stop to wonder about all the EXTREME WEATHER happening all over the country and whether it could be the result of God withdrawing His hand of protection....they are going to be too busy pouring over the details of the Tom Cruise divorce.

Archeologists Find 2nd Mayan Reference

Dang it!  We were just getting all excited the news reporting that the Mayan's never said December 21 was the last day of earth...and today we find reports that say a 2nd source of Mayan calendar was found and December 21 is the day when the god, Bolon Yokte is going to return.

So come on you Mayans....what's it gonna be??  Is Bolon Yokte a cool dude?  Isn't he the so called, "feathered serpent god' that you talk about in other tablets?  If he is the war god...couldn't that be a bad thing for those of us who have never heard of him?  I'm so confused.....

The Mayan predictions for December 2012 were about the return of the god Bolon Yokte and not about the end of the world, experts say.

The Dec. 21, 2012, date found on Mayan glyphs led to speculation about Maya prophecies of the end of the world, prompting archaeologists and epigraphists to deny them.

In the Mayan cosmology, a cycle of creation was completed at the end of each era and then another began.

Bolon Yokote is a god associated with creation and war that participated in the start of the current era, which began on Aug. 13, 3114 B.C.

The idea that the pre-Hispanic civilization predicted the end of the world in 2012 has been popular in some New Age circles since the 1970s.

Read more:

Hmmmm....this one has me thinking....if you were a Mayan sitting in your hut in Guatemala 1000 years ago and....some strange ship that looked like floating feathers came down from the sky....and a dude got out and told you his name was Bolon Yokote and then gave you a calendar and said he will be back on December 21, 2012 when all the stars are in just such a place......wouldn't we call that an "alien" today? 

Could it be that this "alien" giving special information to the Mayan's 1000 years ago...actually be a demon sent by Satan to decieve?

"Your enemy, the devil, prowls around like a hungry lion looking for whom he may devour."

Just imagine how many folks will fall into the trap if Bolon Yokote DOES RETURN and claims to be some type of savior for mankind.

Remember, Jesus clearly said that there will be many false messiahs in the last days...all claiming to be saviors.  I'm guessing Bolon Yokote may be just one of many.....

The Age of the Dumb Church

We know the sad statistics about people who call themselves 'Christians'.  Most of them have never read their Bibles...most of them can't name the first 5 books of the Bible, most of them can't even give an explanation for their claimed belief in Christ, and now most of their kids are walking away from the faith when they leave the home.  They will never be in the battle that Christ called us to engage in.

Why does this keep happening?

In short, it happens because much of the Church today is dumb. Don’t misunderstand me, I mean no disrespect when I use the term ‘dumb’. What I mean is that the Church is dumb in that they aren’t well educated in what they believe, fail miserably in fulfilling 1 Peter 3:15 that says all Christians should be prepared to give a reason for why they believe, and are woefully unable to handle any challenge to Christianity that comes from unbelievers or the cults.

Dr. R. C. Sproul has said many times that he believes we are living in the most un-intellectual period in the history of Western civilization. Over 30 years ago, former Lebanese ambassador to the United States, Charles Malik, said the following in his speech at the dedication of the Billy Graham Center in Wheaton, Illinois: “I must be frank with you: the greatest danger confronting American evangelical Christianity is the danger of anti-intellectualism. The mind in its greatest and deepest reaches is not cared for enough.”

How can you tell if your church exhibits traits that characterize a dumb church? Although not exhaustive, I offer these criteria that I believe help contribute to a church becoming ‘dumb’:

  • Preaching is always topical and never expository. Selective topical series allow tough and deep theological subjects, as well as ‘controversial’ passages of Scripture, to be avoided with ease.
  • Although the church leaders offer strong external facing statements as to how they are a “Bible believing church”, the Bible is actually used and referenced very little in the sermons. Few quotations from Scripture are heard in a message, with the vast majority of all sermons consisting of personal rhetoric, humor, videos, and personal stories.
  • Biblical terms such as justification, reconciliation, sanctification, propitiation, etc., are avoided like the plague.
  • There is little to no instruction for new (or existing) believers on the core doctrines of the Christian faith, and no requirement for new believers to attend such instruction.
  • There is no continuous offering of apologetic training classes that are designed to train Christians in the evidences and defense of the faith, and little to no interest of the pastors in the subject area.
  • There is no easy way for the congregation to have tough questions answered by the lead pastors; such a thing is quietly ignored, discouraged or not practiced regularly.
  • Deep Bible study programs are either absent or deliberately pushed out in favor of more ‘relevant’ classes that deal with softer subject matters (e.g. money management).
  • Adult and children’s Bible studies before/after the main church service are either omitted or are second class citizens to “Community Groups” that seek to have members meet in each other’s homes during the week, where no oversight is given as to what is done or taught. These groups, where teaching is concerned, are run “hands off” where the church leadership is concerned.
  • There is a huge emphasis on relationship building and serving in areas of the church, but no similar importance placed on growing more Biblically and theologically literate.
  • The youth department has an unmistakable concentration on entertainment, games, social interaction, etc., vs. actual teaching of Christian doctrines.
  • The church either has no library or one that is not kept up to date.
  • There is either no staff member assigned specifically to church education, or it is assigned to an already overburdened associate pastor.
  • Doctrinal statements of the church are missing or are not prominently made available. If they exist, they do not address any controversial theological topics or make very vague statements concerning them.
  • Here;

    Do you attend a dumb church?  If you do, I would strongly recommend you leave it and find a fellowship of believers who you can work with.  As the persecution grows against folks who read, understand and believe their Bibles, it is going to be more important that you have an army to stand with.

    If you knew you were going into a war (newsflash...we are already in one and have been since we were born onto this Satanic planet) would you rather have 100 Navy Seals by your side or 1000 people who have never even held a gun and have no battle experience?

    Think about it...then get in the war!  If you haven't been shot at probably means you are so far back from the front lines that Satan could care less about what you are doing...because you are not a threat to him.

    Heat Wave Smashing Records

    A friend texted me yesterday that in Nashville it was the hottest day EVER recorded...not just for the one day record, but EVER.
    Today we have this headline...and the excessive heat is now leading to deaths.

    --Columbus, GA set an all time record of 106, breaking the previous all-time record of 105 which was set on Friday. The daily record high was 100 set in 1959.

    --Macon, GA tied the all-time record high of 108, which was last set in 1980. The record high for the day was 103 set in 1959.

    --Knoxville, TN set an all-time record high of 105, breaking the previous all-time record high of 104 set on July 12th, 1930. The previous record high for the day was 100, set in 1952.

    --Tri-cities, TN set an all-time record high of 103 degrees, breaking the previous all-time record of 102 set on June 29, 2012 and July 29, 1952. The previous daily record high was only 95, set in 1959.

    --Chattanooga, TN set an all-time record high of 107 degrees, breaking the previous all-time record of 106 set on June 29, 2012 and July 28, 1952. The previous daily record was 103 degrees set in 1952.

    --Atlanta, GA set an all-time record of 106 degrees, breaking the previous all-time record of 105 set in 1980. The previous daily record was 98 degrees set in 1936, broken by a whopping 8 degrees!

    --Raleigh, NC tied the all-time record high temperature of 105 which was last set on Friday and set before that on July 23, 1952. The record for the day was 102 set in 1959.

    Meteorologist DJ Hoffman pointed out that as of Thursday, June 28, 2012, more than 20,900 record highs have been broken to date this year.

    "We have had over 7,700 more record highs this year, compared to last year, despite 2011's South Central states heat and drought," Hoffman said.


    Wow...please say a quick prayer for my kid who is at Army boot-camp in South Carolina.  Sounds awful.

    Did you notice that 20,900 record highs have been brokon in 2012 already?  I wonder if God is trying to get our attention?

    The reports are also saying that there are millions without power all over the Eastern United States.  The hot temps have spawned storms which have knocked out power to MILLIONS.

    Let's cell phone, your computer, your air conditioner, your microwave, our entire lives rely on electricity to allow us to do what we do.  Imagine if a solar storm knocked it out for months?  Anarchy and chaos would be the result and the United States could disappear in a pretty big hurry.

    When will we realize that all we have is a blessing from God and turn to Him in worship?  I hope it's soon...but I'm not holding my breath.  It seems the more signs God sends to remind us we are in control of nothing....the more rebellious the people of planet earth become.

    I'll say it again...I wonder if judgment of the U.S. has started?
