Iran's Oppressed Christians

Here is a pretty amazing article for two reasons....first it was published in the uber-liberal New York Times and second, the news of what our poor brothers and sisters are going through in Iran is staggering...and needs our prayer and attention.

BERLIN — I met Mori in the basement of a Lutheran church in Berlin’s Zehlendorf district. A 28-year-old refugee who once ran a small business in Iran, he converted to Christianity five years ago and spoke to me on condition that I use only his first name in order to protect his identity. In 2011, delayed on the way to a secret Bible study session, he narrowly escaped when Revolutionary Guards raided his underground Evangelical church. He watched as his friends disappeared into Iran’s prison system; Mori suspects they’ve been killed.

“When you’re Christian in Iran, you can’t speak. You have to keep quiet and not talk about the truth that you know and that you believe in,” he told me. “There is no such thing as a comfortable life in Iran.”

Christianity of course is not alien to Iran. It arrived in ancient Persia not long after the death of Christ and has waxed and waned ever since. But in recent decades, especially in the last few years, things have grown worse. As Washington seeks rapprochement with Tehran over Iran’s nuclear and regional ambitions, the Obama administration must not let its protests over cruel treatment of Christians and other religious minorities fall by the wayside.

Christians make up roughly less than half of 1 percent of Iran’s roughly 80 million people. Numbers are difficult to determine: There could be as many as half a million Christians in the country, according to a report by the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. It cites research by the World Christian Database indicating that there were 270,000 living there in 2010. Most of them are ethnic Armenians and Assyrians who, though closely monitored, are able to practice their own Orthodox faith. It is the other denominations — mostly converts from Islam to Evangelical Protestantism — that are more likely to be harassed, imprisoned or even murdered.

Meanwhile, Iran’s crackdown on religious freedom continues. Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American pastor and ex-Muslim was arrested in 2012 on a visit to Iran and sentenced last year to eight years in prison for helping to build the country’s underground Christian church network. Though President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have both called for his release, the dream of better relations with Iran has clouded over sobering realities.

President Hassan Rouhani, often portrayed in the West as a reform-minded moderate, has urged an end to meddling in Iranians’ private lives. Last December, he sent his best wishes to those celebrating Christmas via Twitter, “especially Iranian Christians.”

But Mr. Abedini and others languish in prison. As a signatory of international human rights declarations, Iran must be held accountable for the appalling treatment of its citizens if it wants to normalize relations with the West.

Did Aliens Take the Boeing 777?

Some of us think that this huge plane simply vanishing MAY be prophetic.

Think about it...hundred of people simply vanish?

Is their something to the 777 number?

As the days roll on without any satisfactory answer, the speculation begins to grow.

With that being said, I saw this article about the doomed flight;

Six Facts You’re Not Being Told About Lost Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

The world is baffled as to what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 several days ago. One of the largest commercial airliners in existence, a Boeing 777, simply vanished from radar, in a day of advanced technology, and out of sight, in a heavily populated region. Half of the world’s entire population lives in Asia, yet not a single pair of eyes have seen this giant airplane.

Investigators seem to be clueless as to what has happened and have only recently decided they’ve been looking in the wrong place. At least that’s what they’re telling us.

The online site Educate Inspire has recently published a story that asks us to look at six facts that the mainstream media is not telling us. And it’s not conspiracy. These are reasonable questions that are as of yet to be answered.

The article then goes on to ask and explain a handful of reasonable questions....BUT...the last paragraph is really what caught my eye.

The inescapable conclusion from what we know so far is that Flight 370 seems to have utterly and inexplicably vanished. It clearly was not hijacked (unless there is a cover-up regarding the radar data), and we can all be increasingly confident by the hour that this was not a mid-air explosion (unless debris suddenly turns up that they’ve somehow missed all along).

The inescapable conclusion is that Flight 370 simply vanished in some way that we do not yet understand. This is what is currently giving rise to all sorts of bizarre-sounding theories across the ‘net, including discussions of possible secret military weapons tests, Bermuda Triangle-like ripples in the fabric of spacetime, and even conjecture that non-terrestrial (alien) technology may have teleported the plane away.

It was the aliens that took them!!!

Think about it...if the world is baffled and confused by a jet and 300 people vanishing and THAT is giving rise to some very strange explanations....JUST IMAGINE what is going to happen when MILLIONS OF PEOPLE vanish in the twinkling of an eye when the trumpet sounds!!

"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air."  1 Thessalonians 4:17

Putin & Obama May Both Be Delusional

Some of you may not agree with Hal Lindsey's theology, but his weekly email today caught my interest.  What if the world starts to be run by delusional forces?  How many strings is Satan actually pulling on these world leaders at this time?  Are we remembering to pray for Obama and even for Putin??  The Bible makes it clear that's EXACTLY what we are supposed to be doing.

Also please note that Hal is referring to Russia as Magog so, just like we are, he appears to be very open to the possibility that Putin is actually "Gog of Magog" as spoken of 2800 years ago in Ezekiel.

Just imagine if WE are the generation to see all these things!!  What a blessing that is!!

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says Russian President Vladimir Putin may be out of touch with reality and seems to be " another world." 

The left-wing Washington Post last week declared, "President Obama's foreign policy is based on fantasy." The editorial board wrote, "For five years, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality." 


That means Putin, "The most powerful person in the world" according to Forbes magazine (and also the leader of Magog), and Obama, the second most powerful person in the world according to Forbes magazine, may both be operating in "fantasy"-land. 

That can't be good. 

However, it's not totally unexpected. In fact, if you believe the Bible, it's totally expected. 

Setting aside the influence of global and domestic politics and the Alpha Male posturing of both of these presidents, it's not surprising that they are issuing dangerous threats and exhibiting some rather bizarre attitudes. The Bible says that will happen in the last days and, in fact, gives us an example of how it has happened before. 

The story of the ancient prophet Daniel provides a glimpse into what is unfolding right now in the world. It shows plainly that there is more happening than meets the eye when powerful nations collide. 

The Bible describes how Satan places his powerful "princes" (fallen angels) in positions to influence the leaders and events in the nations of the world. The more important the nation in Satan's scheme, the more powerful the demon he places in charge. 

In fact, in Daniel's story (Daniel 10), the archangel Gabriel was delayed 21 days when he attempted to deliver a message from God to Daniel. He was opposed by the "prince of the kingdom of Persia" and could only deliver his message after the powerful archangel Michael came to help him. Now that's some serious spiritual warfare! 

So this tells us that when someone as responsible as Chancellor Merkel (whose father was a pastor) tells us that "another world" may be influencing the decisions being made in "Magog," we should listen, but not be surprised. 

Folks, as I've said many, many times over the years on this program, we are seeing supernatural forces at work in America and in the world. There is no other way to explain some of the things that are happening. Too many of them defy logic and common sense. But, then, the prophecies concerning the final days of this Age have consistently bumfuzzled the critics. Their favorite argument is that we shouldn't believe the Bible because there's no way some of the events it predicts can happen. 

What do they say when that stuff actually happens -- as we're witnessing today? Their silence is deafening. 

But that's not all I'll be discussing on this week's show. I'll bring you up to date on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's recent visit to the White House; Mahmoud Abbas's outburst that makes a mockery of President Obama's assertion that he is a reliable peace partner; Secretary of State John Kerry's veiled threats toward Israel; and other items that will make you ask yourself, "How did Washington get this so wrong?" 

But just remember, though what's happening in America and in the world is disturbing, even frightening, these are not uncharted waters. The truth is we have a detailed map of these times that lays out precisely the order of events. If we're smart, we'll take note of these warnings and prepare ourselves and our families for what is about to break upon us. 

Most importantly, though, don't lose hope in Jesus Christ. God gave us very specific, strong, immutable promises on which we can rely in the coming days. And God cannot lie. If He said He will do it, He will. 

Just trust Him and keep looking up!

Does the World Love You?

If the world does love're probably doing something wrong if you claim to be a follower of Jesus.

With that being said, check out this article about the Pope in today's Wall Street Journal.

Mass Appeal: Pope's Popularity a Blessing for Media

VATICAN CITY—Francis mania is lifting up the religious media.

As Pope Francis marks the anniversary of his election on Thursday, his popularity is generating a boom for a media niche that rarely gathers much notice.

"We are just working night and day to satisfy demand," said Msgr. Dario Viganò, head of the Vatican's broadcaster, Vatican Television Center, or CTV, which shadows the pope and supplies papal newscasts and images for both Catholic and lay broadcasters.

Revenue at CTV leapt 40% in 2013, as broadcasters as far afield as Tanzania now want the recordings of the pope's weekly audiences. The windfall has allowed CTV to splash out on more modern cameras and a new €1.8 million ($2.45 million) control room.

Last week—on Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent— Mondadori MN.MI -0.33%  SpA, the publishing house controlled by the family of media magnate-turned-politician Silvio Berlusconi, launched a new weekly dedicated to the pope. The magazine, Il Mio Papa, which will initially cost 50 euro cents a copy, will include a pullout centerfold with Francis quotes and will print three million copies for its first month of publication.

Interest in the papacy exploded after Pope Benedict XVI's surprise resignation last year, and it carried through the conclave that elected Pope Francis. But Pope Francis' personal—and telegenic—gestures, such as washing prisoners' feet on Good Friday and taking selfies with fans in St. Peter's Square, have kept interest high.

"We really have seen a 'Francis effect,' " said Dennis Coday, editor of the National Catholic Reporter in Kansas City, Mo., whose monthly online page views have soared 44% since Pope Francis' election.

A rise in subscriptions and newsstand sales allowed the Tablet, a British Catholic magazine, to spend more than €7,000 to send its Rome-based correspondent on the papal plane to cover World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro last July. It has also hired a stringer to cover Latin America, the home turf of the Argentine pontiff.


Awwww...isn't that special?!  The godless media is making a fortune off the popularity of the Pope!!

And even the TV stations have used their surging prophets to buy more camera's to cover the Pope's every move!!

Hey...wait a second....could this guy end up being the FALSE PROPHET spoken of in Revelation? Could he be the one that is going to be the spokesperson to bring the whole world together under a ONE-WORLD-RELIGION?

Who know??  I certainly don't...but it is interesting to ponder...

Revelation 19:20
But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

Scoffing and Mocking

Yesterday I received this email from Dr. David Reagan's ministry.  For those of you not familiar with him, he is a top-prophecy guy who has been sounding the alarm for some time.  His ministry is called LAMB AND LION MINISTRIES.

In the spring of 2012, I believe the Lord began to move on my heart with a very troubling message. I turned it over and over in my mind, and I wrestled with it in prayer. Finally, it burned so hot in my soul that I had to put it on paper. When I finished it, and it was published in June of 2012, I called it A Prophetic Manifesto, and I gave it this stark cover because it contained a very stark message.

Scoffing and Mocking

I believe that America is finished, for we as a nation have turned our back on God. We have kicked Him out of our schools and out of the public arena. We have declared Him to be off-limits. We have given the boot to the very One who made us great and showered us with blessings. We are in the process of becoming a thoroughly secular and pagan nation. And in the process, we are courting the wrath of God.

I now want to share the message from the second half of my booklet. It focuses on the Church and its failure to prepare people for the imminent return of Jesus.

Jesus is about to return, and the Church at large seems to be oblivious to the fact. In the Church today, Bible prophecy is neglected, it's abused or scorned. Most pastors simply ignore it as irrelevant or too controversial. Many abuse it by spiritualizing it to mean anything they please. Some just write it off as nonsensical gobbledygook.

The irony is that all this is a fulfillment of end time Bible prophecy, pointing to the fact that we are truly living in the season of the Lord's return. Here's how the Apostle Peter wrote about it:

"Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.'"
I used to think this prophecy referred to unbelievers, but they could care less about the return of Jesus. To them the whole concept is an absurd myth.

It is Christian leaders who are mocking and scoffing. Some are liberals who are Christians in name only. To them, the idea of Jesus returning to reign over the world for a thousand years is a joke. They consider it to be as ridiculous as the Virgin Birth or the Resurrection. Others are true believers who either know nothing about Bible prophecy or else have some perverted concept of it.


Increasingly, those who have a perverted concept of Bible prophecy are espousing the unbiblical concept of Postmillennialism.

Postmillennialism is the idea that the Church will take over the world either through political action or evangelism, or a combination of the two, and that the Church will then rule over the earth for a thousand years. At the end of this reign, the Church will surrender the kingdom to Jesus who will transport the Church to Heaven and burn up the earth.

Few concepts could be more unbiblical! The Bible makes it clear that the vast majority of humanity will always reject the Gospel. And the Bible makes it equally clear that as we approach the end of the Church Age, society will grow increasingly evil rather than increasingly righteous.

Furthermore, Postmillennialism is based upon the Humanist assumption of inevitable progress which, in turn, is based upon a belief in the essential goodness of man. Again, this is a very unbiblical concept. The Bible teaches that man is born with a sin nature that makes him inherently evil. Man cannot elevate themselves by their own effort. Nor can man be perfected by education or the revolution of society. God will prove this during the upcoming millennial reign of Jesus. During that time, all the world will be flooded with peace, righteousness and justice. And yet, at the end, when Satan is loosed, he will be able to lead a worldwide revolt against Jesus.

Jesus' rule with a rod of iron may produce outward conformity, but inwardly, there will be boiling resentment that will explode into an open rebellion. Man will not be transformed by life in a paradise on earth. And that's because people can only be truly transformed by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that comes through faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior.


The end time viewpoint that is held by the Catholic Church and the majority of Christian denominations today is called Amillennialism. It is the strange concept that teaches that the Millennial reign of Jesus began at the Cross and continues to this day. Like the Postmillennial view, this view is based on a spiritualization of Scripture, which is a nice way of saying that it is based on an outright denial of what the Scriptures plainly state.

Logic alone is sufficient to destroy the Amillennial viewpoint. For example, the Bible teaches that during the Millennium, the earth will be flooded with peace, righteousness and justice. Can anyone truly argue with a straight face that such an atmosphere prevails today? Or, the Bible says that during the Millennium, Satan will be bound so that he can no longer deceive the nations of the world. Is that a present reality? Of course not. All the nations of the world, without exception, are deceived and exist in a state of rebellion against God.

The Bible says six times in the book of Revelation that the Millennium will last 1,000 years. And yet, Amillennials say the Millennium began at the Cross and will continue indefinitely until the return of Jesus. Who is correct? The Bible or the Amillennialists?


The correct concept, I believe, comes from a literal reading of end time prophecies. Seeking the plain sense meaning will produce what is called the Premillennial viewpoint. According to this view, society will disintegrate in the end times, becoming as immoral and violent as it was in the days of Noah. The Church will be taken out of the world in an event called the Rapture, and then God will begin to pour out His wrath during a seven year period called the Tribulation.

At the end of the Tribulation, Jesus will return in majesty and glory. A great remnant of the Jews will accept Him as their Messiah. Jesus will then regather these believing Jews to Israel and establish them as the prime nation of the world. Jesus will then begin His thousand year reign from Jerusalem during which time the earth will experience peace, righteousness and justice. 

Pretty awesome words!  You tell me if those don't cut right to the chase.

So let's continue with another thought, IF he is correct that "America is finished."

In today's FRONT PAGE of the Wall Street Journal, there is an article talking about how susceptible our power grid is to sabotage.  The article says that if a very few power stations were knocked out by terrorists that the entire country could be plunged into darkness that could "last for weeks, if not months."

So what do you think America would look like if it had no power for weeks or months?

Does this nation deserve that kind of judgment??


Is God merciful?


Is God just?


What happens when a nation's cup of sin is full to the brim and even overflowing?

Friends, our hope DOES NOT DEPEND on the next election....our hope ONLY comes from Christ.

Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Gaza Militants Fire Dozens of Missiles Into Israel

This appears to be some rather recent news about missiles coming out of Gaza and landing in Southern Israel.

Gaza militants fire rocket barrage at southern Israel

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have fired more than 30 rockets at southern Israel, Israeli officials say.

An Israeli military spokesman said eight hit urban civilian areas and that a number of others were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system.

It was the heaviest barrage since the November 2012 conflict in Gaza ended.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad said it had fired the rockets in retaliation for Tuesday's killing of three of its militants in an Israeli air strike.

Late on Wednesday afternoon, "code red" sirens sounded across southern Israel after militants fired tens of rockets from northern Gaza in a co-ordinated attack, Israeli military spokesman Lt Col Peter Lerner said.

The head of the Eshkhol Regional Council, Haim Yalin, told the BBC that more than 60 rockets had been launched.

Israeli troops responded by targeting "two terrorist locations" with artillery rounds, Col Lerner said, blaming Islamic Jihad for the largest barrage since a ceasefire ended the eight-day conflict between Israel and militants in Gaza at the end of 2012.

A statement by Islamic Jihad's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, said the barrage was its "initial response" to the "crimes of the Zionist enemy in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip", the latest of which was the "assassination" of three of its members on Tuesday.

The Israeli military said it had targeted the militants after they fired mortars at its troops. The al-Quds Brigades said the Israeli soldiers had crossed into the Gaza Strip.

After Wednesday's rocket barrage, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "We won't flinch. We will continue to hurt those who try to hurt us.


It sure seems like the hatred has been building in Muslim land...and some days it just has to pop out.

Of course the Muslims are saying the rockets were in response to Israel killing 3 militant soldiers who were just selling cookies, playing cards and minding their own business!!

Israel says otherwise....that they were militants who had fired mortars at Israeli troops.

He said...she said....

I would tend to believe the Jewish explanation as the Muslim militants have already proved over and over again at how adept they are at lying.

Iran Says, "Our Hands Are On The Trigger"

The trigger of what??  And what for?

The trigger of their weapons systems.  With intent to destroy Israel.

Iran general: “Our hands are on the trigger” to destroy Israel. Yet Russia decides to build Iran more nuclear facilities.

(Washington, D.C.) — One day after the commander of Iran’s air force said he was ready to destroy Israel, Russia decided to build Iran more nuclear facilities.

“Iran and Russia reached a preliminary agreement to build at least two new nuclear power plants,” Iranian Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said in remarks reported by Iranian news services and the Times of Israel. “The two new 1,000 megawatt plants will be built alongside the existing power station in Bushehr, which was also built by Russia, Kamalvandi said.”

“The air force commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps was quoted by Iran’s Fars news agency as saying Tuesday that Iran’s military has its finger on the trigger to destroy Israel as soon as it receives the order to do so,” reports the Times of Israel. “In an article headlined ‘IRGC Commander: Iran’s Finger on Trigger to Destroy Zionist Regime,‘ Fars wrote that Brigadier General Hossein Salami had declared that Iranian military commanders are prepared to attack and destroy the Zionist regime of Israel as soon as they receive such an order.”

“Today, we can destroy every spot which is under the Zionist regime’s control with any volume of fire power (that we want) right from here,” Fars quoted Salami as telling a conference in Tehran Tuesday on “The Islamic World’s Role in the Geometry of the World Power.” 

“Iranian leaders regularly issue threats against Israel and the United States, but the wording ascribed to Salami on Tuesday was particularly aggressive,” the article noted.

“Islam has given us this wish, capacity and power to destroy the Zionist regime so that our hands will remain on the trigger from 1,400 kilometers away for the day when such an incident (confrontation with Israel) takes place,” he was also quoted saying in the speech.

“The comments came a day after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented a shipment of what he said were Iranian arms intercepted at sea last week, which he charged were intended for terror groups in Gaza,” noted the Times. “Netanyahu castigated the West for clinging to the illusion that Iran had changed, and said it remained relentlessly committed to fostering terrorism and advancing a nuclear weapons program. Last month, Iranian state TV ran a documentary featuring a computerized video of Iran’s drones and missiles bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor in a hypothetical retaliation for an Israeli or American strike on the Islamic Republic. Iranian drones and missiles were also shown in the film carrying out simulated strikes on the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, downing American aircraft and striking American military targets in the Persian Gulf.”

Ok, a few notables here.  What the heck is Russia doing playing with these apocalyptic-12th Imamers of Iran? (Persia)

Ezekiel 38
‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. 4 I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. 5 Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.

Hmmm....could Putin end up being Gog, the ruler of Magog?...the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal?  

Some prophecy watchers claim that Meshek is now called Moscow and Tubal is now called Tobolsk, which are both prominent cities in THAT is interesting.

But here is a certain fact;  Up until 1939 Iran had always been called Persia.  So it should not surprise Bible readers when some aggressive dude from Russia starts to butter the bread of Iran, Libya, Turkey and some other North African Muslim nations like Somalia, Sudan and maybe some of Ethiopia....because Ezekiel saw such a force coming in the VERY last days.

We can KNOW that Israel WILL NOT BE WIPED OFF THE MAP by anyone, so we can just smile as we listen to threats coming from Iran and directed at Israel.  God will see to that.

However, let's remember that America is called the GREAT SATAN by Iran, and Israel is the LITTLE SATAN...and of course there is no mention of America in Bible maybe one day Iran figures out a way to get a nuke onto an old, rusty ship and when it gets a few hundred miles off the coast of New York it launches it out of a shipping container and explodes it 50 miles about the East Coast.   In an instant, the blink of an eye, ALL ELECTRICITY would cease to exist for 100,000,000 Americans.

The resulting chaos would totally destroy America.  The power grid could be down for months.  No grocery stores, no cash machines, no credit card swiping, no gas pumps, no cars work...and no help would be coming.  Men would turn into animals withing a handful of they hunted for food.  It would certainly feel like The Tribulation would be upon us.

And remember, when America collapses, the resulting implosion will bring down most of the other Western Civilizations.

But never mind all that bluster and talk about destruction....we need to send Team Obama back over to Israel and MAKE THEM SIGN A PEACE DEAL WITH THE ARABS OF GAZA AND WEST BANK!!  

Oh yes, and please ignore the news that Israel just intercepted an Iranian ship LOADED with missiles and bombs that was destined for Gaza.

How's that for peace partners?!?!

Vanished Malaysian Plane Had Iranians On Board

How does a massive airliner, a Boeing 777, go missing without a trace?

Did an alien ship abduct the entire thing?...OR....did it get blown into bits by Muslim terrorists who waited until drinks had been served at 35,000 feet before they screamed, "Allah Akbar!" and detonated some explosives?

Investigators are grabbing for ANYTHING they could use to figure out what happened...because they can't find the plane!!

Today we learn this;

The two passengers that boarded the missing Malaysia Airlines plane with stolen passports are believed to be Iranian.

The secretary general of Interpol, Ronald Noble, said both passengers had earlier used Iranian passports that were not reported stolen or listed on Interpol's databases.

Mr Noble warned that more than a billion passports go unscreened as people board planes and cross boarders each year.


Now scratch you chin and say, "Hmmmmmm....."

What the heck were two Iranians with stolen passports doing on the plane?

What is the dominate religion in Iran?....Lutheran, Buddhist or Islam?

If you said Islam, you would be right!!  Shiite Islam is the major force in Iran.

Now what religion has been responsible for 99.999% of the suicide bombings in the past 30 years?

If you said Islam, you would be right!!

I'm not gonna lie....I smell something fishy here...and it smells like the so-called prophet, scratch you chin again and say, "Hmmmmm......"

Boeing 777 Just Gone

By now, most of you have heard that an airline flight cruising at 35,000 feet simply vanished somewhere over the south China Sea.

Is it interesting that the plane was a Boeing 777?

Is it interesting that the flight was headed to China...where just last week some Chinese Muslims went on a knife slashing spree and killed dozens and wounded over 140 more?

Did the plane blow up?  Did the followers of Allah have something to do with it?  If so was the number 777 some type of sign to be sent?

A shadowy group called the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade has claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 — but officials were skeptical and said the claim could be a hoax.

The group — unheard of before now — on Sunday sent an email to journalists across China that read: “You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as pay back,” but the message provided no details of what brought the flight down.

And Malaysia’s acting transport minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, told reporters at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Monday he doubted the claim’s legitimacy.

“There is no sound or credible grounds to justify their claims,” he said, according to Malaysian news reports.

Officials also said testing showed that an oil slick thought to possibly be from the plane had no connection to the aircraft.

Meanwhile, investigators suspect the vanished Malaysian airliner may have been blown out of the sky — just like the jumbo jet that rained deadly wreckage onto Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988.
A senior official involved in the probe of its disappearance said the evidence so far “appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,” Reuters reported.


Hmmmm....planes just don't disintegrate while flying 5 miles high.  No MAY DAY call?  No announcement that they were having problems with engines or wings?

It sure sounds like someone blew that plane up.

Now I will ask again....if it was blown up...who do think might be responsible?
A)  Disgruntled Lutherans upset at being cut from the choir?
B)  Angry Methodists who want more potlucks?
C)  Upset Hindus who are mad that Christians have hijacked their YOGA practice?
D)  Suicidal Muslim who want to claim the world for Allah and usher in the 12th Imam?

Please think carefully before you answer.

Hat tip to James L.

Rumors of War in Ukraine

Could Putin be the biblical character Gog of Magog spoken of in Ezekiel 38?

We have no idea...however he sure fits the description.

Jesus said there will be wars and rumors of war as the DAY OF THE LORD approaches.

Please remember that over the last 100 years more humans have been killed in wars that in all the other centuries combined!!  That certainly appears to be the increasing birth pangs that Jesus told us to watch for.

And new we have more rumors coming out of Ukraine as Putin tightens his hold and USA and Europe can only issue meaningless ultimatums.

Talk of war dominates discussion in Kyiv’s Maidan

KYIV, UKRAINE—War was the last thing Ukrainian protesters had in mind 13 weeks ago when they launched the spiralling demonstrations that ultimately topped their government.

But war — and the diminishing ways to avoid it — now dominates discussion on the Maidan, the central square in Kyiv that symbolizes Ukraine’s hoped-for fresh start.

Thousands descended on the already crowded square over the weekend, many to protest anew over the Russian military takeover of Ukrainian’s southernmost peninsula. Others, in a show of solidarity, marched through the centre of Kyiv flying flags from around the world, many of them Canadian.

“If Russia starts shooting, we don’t have a choice. We will fight because this is our home,” said Diliver Mametov, 24, who waved a placard with the words: Crimea is Ukraine.

“We want real democracy. We want clean government. We want an end to corruption. If Russia forces a fight upon us over these ideas, I am ready to fight back.”

The Russian military isn’t what it once was, but neither is Ukraine’s. Yet even with the prospect of being outnumbered five to one, Ukrainians on the Maidan warn Russia will pay a high cost.

“I don’t expect other countries to actually fight with us. I realize we are alone,” said Mametov, a mechanical engineer. “But there is still time for Europe, America and Canada to apply serious sanctions. If the western nations make pressure on the rich men of Russia, the ones who love to count their money, these people will turn against Putin.”


Yep!  That's true!  No Western nation is going to send soldiers to fight with the Ukrainians against Russia.

But will the Western nations be able to put financial pressure on Russia...or the rich men of Russia?

Hmmmm......since Russia supplies a boat load of Germany's natural gas...and Europe can do nothing meaningful without German support...I am guessing there is going to be lots of bluster but Russia, for now, seems to be holding all the cards.

Now think about this for a moment....what if Israel continues developing the Leviathan natural gas fields and ends up sending lots of energy to Europe and thereby circumventing Russia and the trump card they currently hold over Europe??

Could that be the "hook in the jaw" spoken of in Ezekiel 38?  Could that be what ultimately gets Russia interested in taking that 'booty' from Israel?

Wars, rumors of wars, quakes, famines building, strange diseases breaking out, and the stage continues to be set for the fulfillment of Ezekiel 39-39.  How many more events need to happen before the Lord comes....first for His bride and next in His 2nd advent to rule and reign on David's throne?

"When you see all these things BEGINNING to happen then lift up your heads for your redemption is near."....said Jesus.

"But you, brothers, are NOT IN DARKNESS so that this day should surprise you like a thief.  You are all sons of the light and sons of the day."....said Paul when describing how we won't be surprised when Jesus comes to snatch believers away IF we have been paying attention.

Are we paying attention??  Or are we prone to be scoffing (where is His coming?) while ignoring spiritual things and planning our next year of entertainment, fun, home decor, travel, new cars, new boats and new cabins?

A Few Days of Quakes

Some people will tell you that actual earthquakes haven't increased but only the detection systems have gotten better.

I get that and won't argue one way or the other.  However, when a tree falls in the woods with no one around....does it still make a sound?

Jesus said, "You will hear...of earthquakes in various places."

So today we have some various places where we are hearing about earthquakes...and here are a just a few earthquake headlines as reported over the last handful of days;

Huckabee Tells America to REPENT

There has been some news coming out of CPAC the last few days as Conservative speakers from around the country make their first big statements on the march towards the Republicans picking the next presidential nominee.

Of interest was Gov. Mike Huckabee, who borrowed a quote from Billy Graham...if God doesn't judge America He owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah.

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 7, 2014 ( – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called on America Friday to repent or else face the same "fiery judgment" God wrought on Sodom and Gomorrah.

Huckabee told the Conservative Political Action Conference, “A society that sacrifices its own children is no better than the ancient Philistines.” He said that “every person has intrinsic value,” noting that “none of us are disposable.” 

In a talk focusing on God, family, and country, Huckabee said he wanted to talk about “things that I know.” The first was that “there is a God, and I know this nation would not exist had He not been the midwife of its birth.” 

“I know that this nation exists by the providence of His hand, and that if this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us,” he said, reminding listeners that Ruth Graham Bell said, “If God does not bring fiery judgment upon America, then he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Huckabee said he hopes “that we repent before we ever have to receive His fiery judgment. But I know that He is, and I believe that a nation that can remember Him is a nation that will be remembered by Him.”

So as you look at all the headline coming out of America every single day...what do you think the likelihood is that we will repent on a National basis?

I'm guessing the chances are slim and none.

The churches are dying here and the college kids are leaving home, leaving church and never coming the tune of about 80% according to a speaker we had at church a few weeks ago.

The news is ALL GAY pretty much ALL DAY...and EVEN OUR WOMEN are turning into guessing our cup of sin has to be pretty darn close to full and even overflowing.

So it might be bad news for us, but NEVER forget that amazing things are happening in Africa and Asia and the Middle East where thousands are being added to the Bride of Christ every single day.

Praise the Lord!
