Another Face-Eating Episode in the News

The bizarre news stories just keep coming....

A British man died after being Tasered by police when he was confronted trying to eat the face and eyeball of a woman in his hotel room.

Cerys Yemm, 22, was pronounced dead at the scene after suffering severe facial injuries, the South Wales Evening Post reported.

Matthew Williams, 34, who was recently released from prison after serving five years for a violent attack on a woman, died not long after police shot him with a Taser stun gun.

“While under arrest, the man became unresponsive. Officers and paramedics administered first aid but he has since been pronounced deceased,” Gwent Police said in a statement.

The incident occurred early Thursday morning at a hostel in the small village of Argoed in South Wales.

Police have said little about the incident, leaving locals to provide the horrific details.

“Security said they told him no girls in his room and he didn’t answer, when they opened his door he was eating her face,” Jill Edwards, who lives near the hotel, told the Daily Telegraph.

Friends said Yemm, a sales assistant at U.K. clothing chain Next, met Williams at a bar the night she was murdered.

A friend to the Telegraph that: “They had been drinking and he persuaded her back to the hotel and said he’d get her a taxi home. Once he got her back in the hotel he must have invited her up to his room and that’s where he attacked her.”

Williams was thought to have done cocaine before the attack, according to reports.

The family of Williams released a statement saying they were, “devastated by the death of an innocent young lady. Words cannot express our grief.”


"But Dennis, there has been cannibalism for ever in the rain forests of New Guinea!  Come on...this headline ain't no big deal!"

Yes it's true that people eating people isn't new in the uncivilized world.  Apparently, those cannibals on New Guinea or South America had already been given over to unseemly behavior...and it happened when they chose to LOSE THE KNOWLEDGE of God their Creator and go worshiping birds and animals.

Romans 1

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts

So we know why all the crazy, Godless tribes in Africa, South America and New Guinea were doing unspeakable and perverse things....because they were already given over.

But how do you explain the bizarre stories coming from the civilized world?  Is it possible these headlines are all signs that God is given us over as well?  Has judgment already started as God withdraws His protective hand and says, "You want to be perverse animals running around humping and eating like want it so bad??....go ahead.  See where it gets you."

And soon a nation will collapse in on itself.

A nation can only afford to incarcerate a certain percentage of its citizens.  Crime and prison are just an enormous drain on society and does NOTHING to improve society and build wealth.

You simply can't have 2% of your citizens in jail with another 10% employed to arrest, imprison, judge and rehabilitate the 2%. The math just doesn't work.

It makes you long for the day when King Jesus will be sitting on the throne ruling the world with perfect justice because man has simply run out of ways to attempt to legislate morality.  Without God...morals cease to exist.

Teach Your Children Well

The Bible tells us that if we raise our children up in the way of The Lord that when they are grownup and living on their own, they will not turn.

Proverbs 22:6 
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Is it any wonder that the government wants our children sitting in public schools at an ever younger age?  I just saw a sign by my office that was advertising, "Pre-school for 3 yr olds!"

The liberals running the public schools are almost universally PRO-ABORTION, they don't believe the Bible, they don't believe that Jesus is the only way for men to achieve salvation, they don't believe that God created the heavens and the earth and they overwhelmingly support gay marriage and LGBTQ causes.

So yes, THEY want to start your children off in the GODLESS way they should that even when they are old they won't turn from their godlessness!

Makes perfect sense!  It I were Satan trying to bring down a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values that's exactly what I would do.

Think about it...most of us have our little children at our house for a few hours a day after they start public school....but the atheists designing our school lessons and textbooks have our child's attention for way more!

Your kids are being taught the lies of evolution from the day they walk into first grade and see the chart hanging above the chalkboard that shows a monkey walking along until he becomes a man!  How is your first grader going to stand up to a St. Olaf graduate who has dream catchers hanging from her rear view mirror, a COEXIST bumper sticker on her Prius and a hyphenated name like, "Mrs. Hanson-Schlaubin"?

Cosmologist and theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss believes that religion could be eradicated — or at least largely removed from society — in just one generation.

Krauss, who made this claim while delivering a speech to the Victorian Skeptics Cafe in Australia in late August, spoke, among other subjects, about how children should be taught about faith in schools, claiming that religious systems shouldn’t be treated “as if they’re all sacred.”

Instead, he argued for changes in how children learn about religion and critical thinking — proposals that are just beginning to gain traction this week.

“What we need to do is present comparative religion as a bunch of interesting historical anecdotes and show the silly reasons why they each did what they did,” he said. “Instead of shying away from it, we have to explicitly educate people to confront their own misconceptions.”

Addressing the future of religion, Krauss cited gay marriage and slavery in offering up a dire prediction: that religion could be largely eradicated within just one generation’s time.

“People say, ‘Well, religion has been around since the dawn of man. You’ll never change that’ … This issue of gay marriage, it is going to go away, because if you’re a a child, a 13-year-old, they can’t understand what the issue is. It’s gone,” he said. “One generation is all it takes.”

Like same-sex matrimony, Krauss said that slavery, too, was ended in a generation, adding his belief that the same dynamic applies to religious adherence.

“Change is always one generation away,” the scientist said. “So if we can plant the seeds of doubt in our children, religion will go away in a generation, or at least largely go away — and that’s what I think we have an obligation to do.”

Krauss made waves earlier this year when he said during a separate appearance that teaching creationism to kids is akin to child abuse.


Wow!  Teaching your kids that God created it all is child abuse??...but teaching them that we all descended from a magical rock that created life from nothing until it morphed into a man who is no different than a monkey....that's the MORAL HIGH GROUND!!

My kids went through the public schools and they are 19 and 21 and appear to be pretty good kids....but I can tell you that with the crap I'm hearing coming from the public schools these days...we would be home-schooling and spending lots of time studying the Truth.  Without God...there are NO MORALS!!  Just do whatever feels good to you at the moment!!

Chaos and anarchy will be the ONLY result of such a widespread belief...and that's exactly what Satan wants.

Israel-Jordan Relations Plummet

The Bible tells us that Israel will be all alone in the very last days. She will have no friends and only enemies.

The Middle East has always been a nasty neighborhood and the Israelites, and now the Jews, have always been hated since Moses steered them to the Holy Land.

Ezekiel 37 clearly says that in the very last days God will orchestrate the return of the Jews from all the nations to which they have been scattered for 2000 years, and will bring them back to the Holy that includes Jerusalem.

Following WWII and the Holocaust NO ONE COULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT it would be possible....but it happened.  Against all odds and with many miracles coinciding, tiny Israel carved out a nation and has been able to keep it and even expand it in spite of the Arab armies who have tried to "drive them into the sea" over these last 65 years.

One Arab country that has managed to stay at peace with Israel for the past 40 years has been the nation of Jordan.  They have a very Westernized king. In fact, he and his wife both look like they could move into Minnesota and none of us would notice...because they look so Western.  Look up Queen Rania if you want to see the very pretty queen of Jordan.

The King of Jordan is named King Abdullah.  He is of the Hashemite sect of Islam and they claim to be direct descendants of Muhammad. However, they have been able to stay more moderate than their ISIS, HAMAS and Al Qaeda cousins.  And consequently have stayed out of any wars with Israel since 1967.

When Israel retook Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, they took it from Jordan in 1967.  As some type of peace gesture, Israel has allowed Jordan to manage the Temple Mount and the waqf who oversee the Al-aqsa mosque that sits on it.  Google all this if you want to know more.

Today we read that Jordan may be turning against Israel as the tension continues to heat up over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem: Increasing strife over Jerusalem's most volatile holy site has pushed relations between Israel and Jordan into crisis, with Amman recalling its ambassador for the first time since the countries' landmark peace treaty 20 years ago.

A Palestinian rammed his car into pedestrians in Jerusalem's city centre on Wednesday, killing an Israeli paramilitary border policeman before he was shot dead by police. More than a dozen people were injured.

In a second attack later, a van driven by a Palestinian hit three soldiers in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. One was seriously injured and two others suffered moderate wounds, an Israeli ambulance service spokesman said.

Security camera footage showed the large van plough into the three soldiers at speed. Police said the van escaped the scene and a search had been mounted.

The earlier car attack in Jerusalem occurred after clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians at the entrance to the al-Aqsa mosque.

Palestinian officials said Israeli forces had crossed the threshold of the mosque for the first time since 1967. Israeli police denied going into the house of worship.

Speaking in Paris as he prepared to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said Amman had withdrawn its ambassador because of the situation at the mosque compound.

"We have sent repeated messages to Israel directly and indirectly that Jerusalem is a red line," Mr Judeh said.

He accused the Israelis of violations and incursions, stopping people from worshipping freely and allowing extremists to enter. "These violations are infuriating" to Muslims worldwide, he said.

In a letter to the United Nations Security Council, Jordan said an Israeli raid had sparked fires that damaged ceiling mosaics and carpet at the compound known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, housing the al-Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock.  Jordan's UN ambassador Dina Kawar said that Amman would  "take lawful steps and measures" to stop further "attacks".

Jordan is a member of the Security Council for 2014-15.

After the Jerusalem car attack, the Islamist group Hamas praised what it described as a "heroic operation", calling it retaliation for the "blood" of Palestinians and "the sacredness of al-Aqsa".


There can be NO DOUBT that the world's attention continues to be focused on Jerusalem.  The city is the apple of God's eye.  Satan wants to keep his Muslim mosque sitting right where it is.  The Muslim horde appears to be getting more angry and more violent every day.

None of these stories and news headlines should surprise those of us who read the Bible.  Instead, they should amaze us.  We worship a God who knows the future!  He is the alpha and the omega...He is the beginning and the end.

Jordan WILL turn on Israel.  But Israel will NEVER be washed away from the Holy Land again.  The world will try to make Israel disappear,,,but God will make sure that NEVER happens.

Continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  We are commanded to.

Also please continue to pray for America.  Only a few of our leaders realize that blessing Israel is the ONLY thing that will prolong America's existence.  If our leaders continue down the path of cursing Israel....we may become even more of a stench in God's nose than we already are.

Muslims Killing Christians....Again

This headline was front and center on Google News today and also made the Wall Street Journal.

45 people arrested killing of Christian couple in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD -- Police in Pakistan say they have arrested as many as 45 Muslims in connection with the killing of a Christian couple for allegedly desecrating the Quran.

Local police officer Mohammad Iqbal says the arrests were made before dawn Wednesday in the town of Kot Radha Kishan in the eastern Punjab province.

He says hundreds of Muslims took part in the attack on Tuesday, in which a mob killed the couple and burnt their bodies in a brick kiln where the man and his wife worked.

Iqbal says the attackers accused the couple of desecrating the Quran.

Shahbaz Sharif, the top elected official in the province, has ordered a probe into the incident.

Under Pakistan's harsh blasphemy laws, anyone accused of insulting Islam or the Prophet Muhammad can be sentenced to death. However, the laws are often misused to settle personal scores and target minorities.


Of course the headline didn't say, "45 Muslims Arrested for Killing Christians" had to read into the article to find out the rest of the story.

How many atrocities to Muslims have to commit in order for the liberal-left to ask, "Hmmm....I wonder if something bad is happening with the 'religion of peace'?"

Jesus told us the world will hate his followers because they hated him first.

True that!!

Keep praying for our persecuted brothers and sisters.

Abort the Children

Those of us with a Biblical worldview know that God knew us before he knit us together in our mother's womb.  Because of scripture, we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God is NOT pleased with the 54,000,000 little babies that have been aborted in this country since 1974.

For the godless folks in our nation though, terminating the life of an innocent baby has EVERYTHING to do with their lives...and not the baby's life.

"I got pregnant after being drunk at the bar!  I'm not even sure what the guy's name certainly don't want his kid!"

"We don't have enough money to have a baby.  Maybe when we are done with college, have a house and some debts paid off then we might want kids...but for now, this fetus has to go!"

"I would be so embarrassed to go back to my home town and tell my parents, grandparents and friends that I got pregnant from some guy at a Frat party!  This baby has to go!"

So if the godless people feel it's their right to kill a baby while it's IN THE MOTHER'S WOMB....why wouldn't they feel the same way about a mother's right to "terminate" the baby after it's outside the mother's womb?

"But Dennis, that's ridiculous!  No one is going to ordain killing a baby that has already been born!"

Really?  Think again.  Some voters are already for it.

Trending: More College Students Support Post-Birth Abortion Of Live Babies

A disturbing trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix.

Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”

“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

Campuses where the high school, college students, local activists and staff members of Created Equal have encountered this opinion include Purdue, University of Minnesota, and University of Central Florida. And at Ohio State earlier this year, the group captured a debate on video between one of its members and an older woman on campus who defended infanticide.

“This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans; in this case, born humans as well as preborn humans,” Harrington said. “[I] talked with one young man at the University of Minnesota who thought it was alright to kill children if they were under the age of 5 years old, as he did not consider them persons until that age.”

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a prolife organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.


You see, you DON'T call it, "Murdering babies" call it "Post-birth abortion".  That sounds so much better!

"Yes, I chose to carry this fetus to full term...but now that I have been up every night with this crying fetus for the past week, and I see all my friends going to Frat parties....I think I have changed my mind about wanting I'm choosing a POST-BIRTH ABORTION."

Perfect!!  Makes total sense in this post-Christian society which we have helped create!

You see friends, the fool says in his heart that God doesn't the fools keep thinking and doing Godless things...until eventually God gives them over to reprobate minds....and they begin to think the most outlandish killing a baby up until the age of 4 should be part of the Pro-Choice platform.

Lord, have mercy.

Pandemic of Porn

A few years back I heard Focus on the Family report that their studies show that 95% of college freshman men were spending some time every day logged into porn sites.

One psychologist I spoke to recently said that 50% of all his family counseling cases had something to do with pornography...and was the ones who admitted it.  He was sure it was quite higher.

Another study I read showed that even America's pastors were not immune from viewing pornography.

And now we are hearing that the fasting growing segment of porn addicts is WOMEN!!

Some will say, "What's the problem??  It's only pictures!  I can look at the menu of any long as I only eat dinner at home."

Wrong!  That is a lie straight from the pit of hell.

Jesus said if we look at another person with lust on our hearts the we have committed fornication or adultery with her already.

Christian leaders and researchers continue to sound the alarm on pornography use, claiming that it has become a dangerous pandemic that threatens adults, youths and the public health at large.

Donna Rice Hughes, CEO and president of Enough Is Enough, a nonprofit devoted to ensuring the Internet is a safe place for children, recently wrote a research article on the subject titled, “The Internet Pornography Pandemic.”

In the piece, which was published in the Christian Apologestics Journal, Hughes provided an overview of the research that has been done on the subject of pornography, calling the findings “eye-opening” and claiming that Internet smut has a “harmful impact on the emotional, mental and sexual health of young children, tweens and teens.”

“Every child deserves a protected age of innocence and the opportunity to thrive during childhood. Their hearts and minds are innocent, tender, and trusting and need to be safeguarded from the negative influences of increasingly violent and sexualized media,” Hughes wrote in the article. “Unfortunately, online pornography damages children, and the consequences are mostly irreversible. Pornography is ‘deforming the sexual development of young viewers and is used to exploit children and adolescents.’”

Hughes argued in the piece that porn sometimes overshadows parents in teaching kids about sex, leading to what she believes are some profoundly damaging effects.

Rather than merely exploring the moral parameters surrounding porn use, she argues that there is a need to address how smut is harming public health. In the end, her goal is to create a movement akin to campaigns aimed at helping people stop smoking to help curb porn usage.

Hughes concluded by calling on the faith community to take the lead, noting that correcting societal issues is the job of the Christian church at large.

“Sadly, many of today’s cultural problems are the consequences of the failure of the church to function in society as God intends,” she wrote. “America has abandoned its spiritual roots and the vision of our nation’s founding fathers. As a result, America is in a moral free fall.”

Read it here; a result of The Church discontinuing to be salt and light and function in society as GOD INTENDS...America has abandoned its spiritual roots and is now in a moral free fall.

"But Dennis, the stock market is at a record high and we just opened up the new. better, stronger, One World Trade Center on the site of the Twin God must still be blessing us!...because we are such a great nation and so worthy of His blessings!"

Really?  Can anyone who reads the Bible and watches the news honestly believe that?

What kind of spirit does a nation open itself up to when millions of its men and women spend hours and days pleasuring themselves in front of a computer as they imagine themselves having sex with others?  And how about the millions who are having actual sex with prostitutes, loose college women or porn addicted wives?  What does that do to the fabric of our nation?

Matthew 5:13-16 
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Hmmmm.....I wonder what that might look like...for the churches of America to be thrown out and trampled underfoot?  It doesn't sound good....

Kyrgyzstan Frightens its Gay Citizens

Kyrgyzstan used to be part of the Soviet Union.  Today they are a Muslim majority country with self rule...but they seem to be taking a tip from Russia when it comes to dealing with homosexuals.

BISHKEK (Reuters) - A draft law banning "homosexual propaganda" in Kyrgyzstan could be the last straw for the Central Asian country's frightened gay community.

Some are thinking of leaving the mainly Muslim state bordering China if the law is passed by parliament, mirroring a move last year by Russia that outraged the West and was seen by critics as part of a broader crackdown on civil society.

Backed by Muslim clerics who say homosexuals are "psychologically ill" and should be cured, the law follows what gays say is growing intimidation, police abuse and beatings.

The law would impose a one-year jail term for "forming a positive attitude to untraditional sexual relations" among minors or in the media.

However, the draft does not clarify exactly what would contravene the legislation relating to minors or what the media may not publish, leading critics to say that in its current shape the law is vague and leaves a lot of room for interpretation and abuse by authorities.

The law's backers have made clear they expect it to go much further than the protection of minors or curbs on the media, and they predict a crackdown on a wide spectrum of activities, such as gay rallies, clubs and cafes.

The law has already won initial approval in the first of three readings in parliament and will require President Almazbek Atambayev's signature to become law, which is expected to happen in due course given deep-rooted homophobia in Kyrgyzstan.

"If this draft law, which is still being debated, is finally adopted, I will be forced to leave the country, along with the others (gays)," a smartly dressed 23-year-old man told Reuters, giving his name only as Sultan for fear of retribution.

"The entire atmosphere is getting more threatening," he said, recounting how he and a small group of friends were beaten up by waiters in a bar when they realized they were gay.

Maksat Hajji Toktomushev, Kyrgyzstan's grand mufti, said there should be no discussion of gay issues.

"These are psychologically ill people, their psyche is destroyed," he told Reuters. "They need to be cured ... I would have banned from the very beginning any discussion of this."

"This is bad, this is decay and depravity. God [Allah] does not tolerate this issue, even mere discussion of it."

Echoing rights activists' concerns about the similar Russian law, some critics say the legislation could be used to muzzle anyone who speaks openly about gay rights including journalists, civil society activists and human rights groups.

Abdraimov dismissed such concerns, saying it was important "to respect our mentality and not to fan passions".

"This is a forbidden theme and one need not get people excited," he said. "How many gays are there in Kyrgyzstan? Two or three? On this issue, we must listen to the majority."


In typical Muslim ignorance, they think there are only 2 or 3 gays in the entire nation!  Well, that's a little better than Ahmadinejad in Iran who said there weren't any!

Notice a few things as you read this article.  Yahoo has NO PROBLEM interchanging the word GOD and ALLAH.  In their minds it doesn't matter what religion you's all just "God" to them.  Of course I see this as the media continuing to unknowingly pave the way for the ONE WORLD RELIGION that will sweep the world when the Antichrist reigns.

Now put yourselves in Putin's shoes and also the Mufti of Kyrgyzstan shoes....can you at least SEE how they look at the porn, drugs, perversion and gay agenda in our nation and tell themselves, "If that's what democracy, imported by America, brings to our kids....we don't want it!!"

Of course the atheists would say, "Well you Christians sound just like the Muslims when it comes to denying the rights of gays!"

Well, let's hope that's not true.

Christians acknowledge that ALL OF US are born with a perverse nature.  Some for fornication, some for adultery, some for bestiality, some for porn, some for gay.  We go on to acknowledge that only through the power of Jesus transforming us can we possibly leave the lifestyles we once had.  So while we are called to have compassion for the lost who struggle with sin and don't know Jesus as savior....that doesn't mean that we have to endorse the acceptance of our perverse nature.  Fornication, adultery, bestiality and homosexuality are NOT GOOD for society so as followers of Christ we can continue to stand against the movement that wants to call every desire we are born with, "good".

Crowd Kills a Man Then Eats Him

The strange headlines continue to come across Google and Yahoo News.

Many times people will ask me, "Dennis, where do you get all these crazy headlines?"  My answer is that I don't have to look very far.  Most of them are just sitting front and center in Google, and some of them are on the sidebars.

Congo crowd kills man, eats him after militant massacres: witnesses

BENI Democratic Republic of Congo (Reuters) - A crowd stoned to death a young man in northeast Congo on Friday before burning and eating his corpse, witnesses said, in apparent revenge for a series of attacks by Ugandan rebels.

The incident in the town of Beni followed a number of overnight raids in the area blamed on the Islamist group ADF-NAUL, who are thought to have massacred more than 100 people this month, using hatchets and machetes to kill their victims.

Witnesses said the man, who has not been identified, aroused suspicion on a bus when passengers discovered he could not speak the local Swahili language and that he was carrying a machete.


Please notice that ISLAMISTS were involved in this story.  Certainly they seem to be at the heart of many of the nasty headlines going on all over the world....from Congo to Canada.

In this case it may have been the Muslim who got killed, burned and eaten.

But what the heck??  I understand killing the Muslim in some sort of revenge killing....but what kind of spirit gets unleashed on a crowd of people that convinces them to burn (roast?) the body and then eat it?

Really??  These stories only use to exist in zombie movies.  Now they are invading our daily news.

Maybe just more signs of the times...

"Spirit of Renewal" in New York City

There are just a very few epic moments in most people's national lives.  Where were you when JFK got shot? What were you doing when we first walked on the moon?  Do you remember when you heard Pearl Harbor was bombed?  Do you remember when the Twin Towers were collapsed by Muslim terrorists flying planes into them on 9/11?

Some of you may have read the best-selling book, The Harbinger.  It's by Rabbi Jonathon Cahn and tells a very interesting story about the passage in Isaiah 9:10.  I won't go into great detail here about it as you can read reviews everywhere, but basically the passage was spoken in pride and arrogance when it should have been viewed as a warning about coming judgment.

Cahn wonders in his book if America isn't repeating the same mistakes.

When the Towers fell and the silence of 9/11 came upon this land, our churches were packed full from NYC to California....for about 2 weeks!  That was about it. The "9/11 revival" was VERY short lived. We never turned back to God.  We never asked God if the attack was a warning.  Instead we went on with arrogance and pride.  We promised that we would rebuild...and the rebuilt building would be bigger, better and stronger!  NO ONE CAN HUMBLE AMERICA!!  SEE WHAT WE CAN BUILD!!  THERE IS NONE LIKE US!!!

World Trade Center reopens: Symbol of NYC spirit of renewal

NEW YORK — Thirteen years after the 9/11 terrorist attack, the resurrected World Trade Center is again opening for business — marking an emotional milestone for both New Yorkers and the nation.

Publishing giant Conde Nast will start moving Monday into One World Trade Center, a 104-story, $3.9 billion skyscraper that dominates the Manhattan skyline. It is America's tallest building.

It's the centerpiece of the 16-acre site where the decimated twin towers once stood and where more than 2,700 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, buried under smoking mounds of fiery debris.

"The New York City skyline is whole again, as One World Trade Center takes its place in Lower Manhattan," said Patrick Foye, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that owns both the building and the World Trade Center site.

He said One World Trade Center "sets new standards of design, construction, prestige and sustainability; the opening of this iconic building is a major milestone in the transformation of Lower Manhattan into a thriving 24/7 neighborhood."

The eight-year construction of the 1,776-foot high skyscraper came after years of political, financial and legal infighting that threatened to derail the project.

The bickering slowly died down as two other towers started going up on the southeast end of the site: the now completed 4 World Trade Center whose anchor tenant is the Port Authority, and 3 World Trade Center that's slowly rising.

The spirit of renewal did not quash memories of the horrific act of terror, but the area has prospered in recent years beyond anyone's imagination. About 60,000 more residents now live there — three times more than before 9/11 — keeping streets, restaurants and shops alive even after Wall Street and other offices close for the day.

Still, it's a bittersweet victory, one achieved with the past in mind as the architects created One World Trade Center.

T.J. Gottesdiener of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill firm that produced the final design told The Associated Press that the high-rise was built with steel-reinforced concrete that makes it as terror attack-proof as possible.

He said the firm went beyond the city's existing building codes to achieve that.

"We did it, we finally did it," he said.


Yes!!  The building is 'as terror attack-proof as possible."  The 'spirit of renewal' that has come upon NYC has made the Twin Tower's area prosper beyond anyone's imagination!  Shops are open, 60,000 more people live there, restaurants and lots of hustle and bustle fill the entire area!

But who actually controls the "spirit of renewal'?  Does that spirit trump the Spirit of God?  Can America survive too much longer if we continue to shun God and scoff at His Word?

Psalm 33:12
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

It would appear that America is heading into a perfect storm.  The conditions are all here for a storm of epic proportions to fall upon this nation.
a) Stock market at record high
b) Obama has turned on Israel
c)  Our military is at war with Satan via Islam
d)  Our military has turned against God/Jesus
e)  We have $17 trillion in debt and much of it needs to be refinanced soon
f)  Our churches are empty and the buildings are for sale
g)  The one's who do have attendance have many false gospels being preached
h)  We have become a nation of greedy, self-absorbed people seeking happiness
i)  There is a famine in the land in that VERY FEW people know what the Bible says

I could go on and on...but you get the idea.

Maybe one day really soon, we will have another EPIC that makes you say, "Where were you when America collapsed?"

No doubt, God has been sending his preachers to warn us.  No doubt, all of their sermons can be listened to by anyone at anytime who has a smart phone, a computer or a radio.

We can pray for a revival to happen, and we should....but any revival that comes will probably only serve to delay the inevitable.  It feels to me, and to many, that America has already passed the POINT OF NO RETURN. We have drifted WAY TOO FAR AWAY from our Creator.  We have been worshiping too many false idols.

Let's continue to pray that Jesus gives us the courage to make it through the tough days that may soon be coming, as the world continues to turn against those of us who read and believe the Bible and are seeing the exciting signs all around us that Jesus is near.


Update;  At lunch today I opened up the Wall Street Journal and saw a full page ad on page A7.  The ad has a picture of the newly completed One World Trade Center.  Two large-type words are underneath the photo: "Indestructible PRIDE"

Can you stick a finger any further into God's eye??

Proverbs 16:18 
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
