Islamic Doctrine Nullifies Christianity

If you go to a Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian or Methodist church this weekend, ask your pastor if Muslims are worshiping the God of the Bible.

You may be surprised to find out that most will say, "Yes!"

Next ask them if Jesus was God.

Some might look at you confused....because many of the pastors have been taught that Jesus was a nice man who came to show us how to live and serve...but they aren't really sure if He was actually God.

Next ask them if they believe Christ died and was resurrected from the dead.

I'm going to guess that all of them will say, "Yes!"

Now remind them that Islamic doctrine clearly says that Jesus was never crucified and that HE NEVER WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD.

I'm not sure how many of them will know this...but now read them 1 Corinthians 15:17

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

And then ask them how it can be even remotely logical to accept that Islam is compatible with Christianity when the foundation of Islamic faith totally nullifies the Christian faith.

If Islam is true....Paul tells us we might as well throw away Christ....because faith in him would be futile and have NO POWER to forgive our sins...which means we would have NO CHANCE to be ushered into heaven and be in the presence of God.

Think about it......


The Thought Police Strike Again

Have you noticed how the leftists seem convinced that Trump and his supporters are the start of the Nazi Party?

While we will readily admit that there is an icky element of white supremacists and anti-Semites who no doubt voted for Trump....there are probably an equal amount of icky Muslim extremists and/or extremist sympathizers who voted for that kind of cancels out that argument.

So while the left thinks Trump is the coming Nazi leader they seem to be totally blind to the fact that THEY are following the Nazi playbook of SILENCING anyone who has ideas that are contrary to theirs.

And the extreme irony is that it seems to be breaking out with the most frequency on college campuses which are supposed to be the bastion of free speech.

Headlines every day proclaim the new religion: political correctness, cultural vandalism and censorship -- not from Islamic emirates such as Saudi Arabia, but in Western cities right here.

The Writers Union of Canada, for instance, recently apologized for a magazine editorial that defended the right of novelists to create characters from a backgrounds other than their own.

Just think of that: a writer defending the right to use one's imagination?! What an insult! At least, to "the new Stalinists" it is.

"In my opinion anyone, anywhere, should be encouraged to imagine other peoples, other cultures, other identities," Hal Niedzviecki, who was the editor of the union's magazine, Write, defended freedom in an editorial. The Union then announced that Niedzviecki had resigned.

Another journalist also fell victim to this new religion. Jonathan Kay also recently resigned as editor of the magazine The Walrus. Defending Niedzviecki's right to use his imagination cost Kay his job.

Their unspeakable crime was, it appears, "cultural appropriation" -- one of the new "groupthink" expressions that the theologian Paul Griffiths condemned as "illiberal and totalitarian". Griffiths, too, had to resign from Duke University after criticizing his colleagues for a "diversity program" that "provides foundational training in understanding historical and institutional racism."

Every revolution needs to master a new "language" to achieve uniformity of expression and thought. George Orwell, in 1984, called the replacement language "Newspeak".

Cardiff Metropolitan University, one of the largest in Britain, compiled a list of 34 words that it "encouraged" teachers and students to stop using, and replaced them with "gender-neutral" terms. "Fireman" should be replaced by "firefighter"; "mankind" should be replaced by banned "humanity", and so on. Princeton University also expunged the word "man" in its various uses, in favor of supposedly more "inclusive" expressions. City University of New York decided to ban "Mr." and "Mrs." California State University replaced commercial terms such as "businessman", "mailman", "manpower" and "salesman" to avoid that horrendous, forbidden word.

While at it, why not also purge Christianity's religious language? Some of the most famous theological universities, such as Duke and Vanderbilt, invited professors and staff to use "inclusive" language even when they are referring to God, because the masculine pronouns are "a cornerstone of patriarchy".

This politically correct nonsense highlights even further the infantilization of our culture -- such as the demand for "safe spaces" and "trigger warnings". It may look like comedy, but its effect is deadly serious. British philosopher Roger Scruton has said that a kind of "moral obesity" is crippling Western culture.

Groupthink is a debilitating force. in any civilization. It undermines one's ability to resist the real enemies of democracy and freedom: it makes us blind to radical Islam and jihadi terrorism, and it gives the impression that our society is a joke.

That is why Algerian writer Boualem Sansal, whose novel 2084 depicted a dystopian state governed by religious law, said "literature and arts are not playing a big role in this struggle against barbarism". Those writers are, instead, far too busy implementing political correctness.

Universities in Britain are now even holding workshops to "deal with right wing attitudes in the classroom". Instead of being intellectually diverse, universities are trying their utmost to impose homogeneity of thoughts and ideas. So-called "right wing newspapers" are banned from certain universities. Recently, the at the City University of London, the student union, devoid of irony, fascistically voted to ban some conservative tabloids in order to "oppose fascism".

Dozens of personalities, conservative and liberal alike, have been prevented from speaking on many U.S. campuses. This is just a short list: Milo Yiannopoulos, Janet Napolitano, George Will, Condoleezza Rice, Madeleine Albright, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Henry Kissinger, Christine Lagarde, Charles Murray and Jason Riley.

First, students asked to limit freedom of expression to a specific place on campus. Then they started issuing declarations about no rights to free speech. Finally, in a crescendo of hysteria, they ended up throwing firebombs. How can we pretend that freedom of expression in the West is protected -- from fascism, Islamism, anything -- when we restrict it in our universities?


Let's look at some Bible verses that my soon be banned from being read at ANY church that hopes to keep it's government issued tax exemption.

1 Timothy 1
8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

As you can see this verse is particularly offensive to the homosexuals as it lumps them into a category of "ungodly and sinful".  This verse will soon be banned from being read in public.

Galatians 1
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

This verse is very offensive to Muslims because they tell everyone that an angel from heaven delivered another gospel to Muhammad that was totally at odds with the Gospel that Paul preached.

Some Lutherans have already quit reading this passage in their church because they believe Paul was upset when he wrote it and probably wished he wouldn't have been so intolerant.

Let's remember friends that Jesus clearly said the world will hate anyone who is a true follower of Him....because they hated Him first.

The Gospel is offensive to ALL SINNERS....and all humans are sinners.  But as this current generation revels in and celebrates their sin....they want to ban anything and anyone who points out that their thinking is foolish and futile.

Romans 1:21
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.

Meanwhile, the Earth Continues to Groan

Prophecy watcher from Jerusalem, Amir Tsarfati, had this to say to his email subscribers yesterday;

Let's Finish Well!

Romans 8
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to son ship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

This September we’re already seeing fulfillment of Romans 8:22-24 more than ever before: Crazy things happen ALL over the globe and it’s only getting bigger, stronger and more frequent! Birth pangs indeed! I don’t really need to look at the stars- I just need to look all around! Take a look at this list that was just posted online yesterday:

California is on fire.

Oregon is on fire.

Washington is on fire.

British Columbia is on fire.

Alberta is on fire.

Montana is on fire.

Nova Scotia is on fire.

Greece is on fire.

Brazil is on fire.

Portugal is on fire.

Algeria is on fire.

Tunisia is on fire.

Greenland is on fire.

The Sakha Republic of Russia is on fire.

Siberia is on fire.

Texas is under water.

India, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh experience record monsoons and massive death toll.

Sierra Leone and Niger experience massive floods, mudslides and deaths in the thousands.

 Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia are crushed in the death grip of a triple digit heat wave, dubbed "Lucifer".

Southern California continues to swelter under triple digit heat that shows no sign of letting up.

In usually chilly August, the city of San Francisco shatters all-time record at 106 degrees, while it reaches 115 degrees south of the city. Northern California continues to bake in the triple digits.

 Yellowstone volcano is hit with earthquake swarm of over 2,300 tremors since June, recording a 4.4 quake on June 15, 2017 and 3.3 shaker on August 21, 2017.

5.3 earthquake rumbles through Idaho.

Japan earthquake 6.1 possible tsunami.

Mexico earthquake 8.2 imminent tsunami. Beach lines are receded at least 50+ meters.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma (biggest ever recorded), Jose and Katia are barreling around the Atlantic with 8 more potentials forming.

And last but not least an X10 C.M.E solar flare a few nights ago. The highest recorded solar flare ever!

So in light of this list and many more end times signs, such as the preparation of the Middle East to the Ezekiel 38 war and the rumors of war with North Korea, let us lift up our heads and look up for our redemption is drawing near! Let’s run the remaining part of this race with endurance, looking at nothing and no one but Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith! Let us finish well so we can say “…I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing…” (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

Here Comes Bernie to Offer More Free Stuff That We Can't Pay For!!

The socialists know they can garnish votes from a large percentage of the population who can't read or write.

Our founding fathers warned us that our Constitution would only serve to function in an educated society.

They clearly told us that if the general population ever learned how to raid the public treasury....then this whole experiment of a democracy ruled by a Constitution would go up in flames.

USA already has $20 trillion in debt that quite honestly can never repay it.  We already have $50 trillion of unfunded liabilities associated with the 100,000,000 people that are going to be swamping the medicare system in the next 20 years as a large wave of population turns 65.

Today we find out that Socialist Bernie now wants to extend the bankrupt program to the entire country!!

Of course promising things that you can never pay for is a whole bunch of fun!!  Until the whole socialist system comes crashing down and the government ends up killing everyone to retain power.

You would think that the world would have learned it's lesson many times over and would purge the socialists from power....but of course there is now a whole new generation of college kids and ignorant Americans who don't like they will think that Bernie's idea sounds just great!!

"Free stuff for everyone!!  Minimal work required!!"

Bernie Sanders: 'Now is the time to extend Medicare to everyone'

Senator Bernie Sanders,(I-Vt.) in an op-ed published Wednesday called for Congress to act now to extend Medicare to all Americans.

Sanders wrote in The New York Times that the U.S. is at a pivotal moment in its history.

"Do we, as a nation, join the rest of the industrialized world and guarantee comprehensive health care to every person as a human right?" he asked.

"Or do we maintain a system that is enormously expensive, wasteful and bureaucratic, and is designed to maximize profits for big insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, Wall Street and medical equipment suppliers?"

The Vermont senator said he has heard from Americans across the country struggling with the "dysfunctional" healthcare system. 

"Americans should not hesitate about going to the doctor because they do not have enough money," Sanders wrote.

"They should not worry that a hospital stay will bankrupt them or leave them deeply in debt. They should be able to go to the doctor they want, not just one in a particular network."

Sanders said that although the U.S. spends "far more per capita on health care than any other industrialized nation," millions of Americans remain uninsured.


"Hi, is this Mayo Clinic?  This is Dennis calling to make an appointment with many doctors.  I have been morbidly obese for years and I tried smoking cigarettes for the last 30 years to lose weight.  It didn't work.  My knees hurt, my back hurts, I can't poop and I'm depressed all the time.  I have never had any health insurance because I figured I would never need it plus I used over $300/month to buy cigarettes so I never could afford health insurance.  Now that I'm 60 years old, I figure it's time to let someone else try to fix all the things that ail me.  I would like liposuction, my stomach tied, some new knees, some back surgery, a cardio-stress test, probably a few stents as my chest feels tight...and that's just for starters.  I understand this will all be free?  That's good, because it's my right according to Bernie Sanders of the socialist party...who I voted for and strongly support."

Have you read the percentage of Americans, including children, who are morbidly obese?

Have you read what the Bible says about the dangers of gluttony?

Do you think we may be the first society in human history who actually ate themselves to death?

Where Did the Ancient Babylonians Get Trigonometry?

Most Bible believers know there was a flood of global proportions during the days of Noah.  If you count back the generations from Abraham to Noah we can determine that the flood happened about 4000 years ago.

If we then count forward to the time when men started to build the Tower of Babel, we would come up with a date somewhere 200-300 years after the flood waters dried up.

So how do you suppose the men attained the knowledge necessary to believe they could challenge God?

It's interesting to ponder what the New York Times article is saying in light of biblical knowledge.

Hints of Trigonometry on a 3,700-Year-Old Babylonian Tablet

Suppose that a ramp leading to the top of a ziggurat wall is 56 cubits long, and the vertical height of the ziggurat is 45 cubits. What is the distance x from the outside base of the ramp to the point directly below the top? (Ziggurats were terraced pyramids built in the ancient Middle East; a cubit is a length of measure equal to about 18 inches or 44 centimeters.)
Could the Babylonians who lived in what is now Iraq more than 3,700 years ago solve a word problem like this?
Two Australian mathematicians assert that an ancient clay tablet was a tool for working out trigonometry problems, possibly adding to the many techniques that Babylonian mathematicians had mastered.
“It’s a trigonometric table, which is 3,000 years ahead of its time,” said Daniel F. Mansfield of the University of New South Wales. Dr. Mansfield and his colleague Norman J. Wildberger reported their findings last week in the journal Historia Mathematica.
(If you need help to solve the problem, the answer is explained below.)
The tablet, known as Plimpton 322, was discovered in the early 1900s in southern Iraq and has long been of interest to scholars. It contains 60 numbers organized into 15 rows and four columns inscribed on a piece of clay about 5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. It eventually entered the collection of George Arthur Plimpton, an American publisher, who later donated his collection to Columbia University. With all the publicity, the tablet has been put on display at the university’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

The other three columns are much more intriguing. In the 1940s, Otto E. Neugebauer and Abraham J. Sachs, mathematics historians, pointed out that the other three columns were essentially Pythagorean triples — sets of integers, or whole numbers, that satisfy the equation a2 + b2 = c2.
This equation also represents a fundamental property of right triangles — that the square of the longest side, or hypotenuse, is the sum of the squares of the other two shorter sides.
That by itself was remarkable given that the Greek mathematician Pythagoras, for whom the triples were named, would not be born for another thousand years.

We also know that ancient Babylon is where Nimrod and all the satanic cults seem to have originated.

We also know that the Bible has much to say about the destruction of Babylon (satanic cults, idol worship, false religions, etc...) in the very last days.

So as you read this article and read your can scratch your chin and say, "Hmmmmm....?"

What Would the Next US Civil War Look Like?

We already can see the news and read our friends post's on social media.  Half this country HATES Donald Trump as President and is even more hateful than the other half who hated what Obama did to this country for 8 years.

We can already see that the smug leftists are pulling down historical markers and statues if THEY judge them to be "offensive" to them.

We can also feel that a large chunk of Americans are fed up with political correctness, Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, stupidity and open borders.

So what happens when half the country wants to go hard to the South and the other half wants to go back hard to the North?

Well, in many cases it can lead to Civil War where half the folks start shooting, robbing, looting and destroying the other half....the North against the South.

Of course the last Civil War was fought by Democrats who wanted slavery on one side and the Republicans who thought all men should be free on the other side.  The war was also about State's right's and Federal Government overreach.

Yes, there is a civil war looming in the United States.

But it will not look like the orderly pattern of descent which characterized the conflict of 1861-65. It will appear more like the Yugoslavia break-up, or the Russian and Chinese civil wars of the 20th Century.

It will appear as an evolving chaos.

And the next US civil war, though it yet may be arrested to a degree by the formal hand of centralized gov-ernment, will destabilize many other nation-states, including the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

It may, in other words, be short-lived simply because the uprising will probably not be based upon the decisions of constituent states (which, in the US Civil War, created a break-away confederacy), acting within their own perception of a legal process. It is more probable that the 21st Century event would contage as a gradual breakdown of law and order.

The outcome, to a degree dependent on how rapidly order is restored, would likely be the end, or constraint, of the present view of democracy in the US. It would see a massive dislocation of the economy and currency. It would, then, become a global-level issue.

Humans mock what they see as an impulse toward species suicide among the beautiful lemming clan of Lemmus lemmus. In fact, these tiny creatures have a societal survival pattern which seems more consistent than that of their human detractors. The pattern of human history shows that civilizations usually end through internal illness rather than at the hand of external powers.

It is significant that the gathering crisis in the United States was not precipitated by the November 7, 2016, election of Pres. Donald Trump, and neither was the growing polarization of the United Kingdom’s society caused by the Brexit vote of 2016.

In both instances, the election of Mr Trump and the decision by UK voters for Britain to exit the European Union were late reactions — perhaps too late — by the regional populations of both countries to what they perceived as the destruction of their nation-states by “urban super-oligarchies”.

The last-ditch reactions by those who voted in the US for Donald Trump and those who voted in the UK for Brexit were against an urban-based globalism which has been building for some seven decades, with the deliberate or accidental intent of destroying nations and nationalism. It is now crystallizing into this: urban globalism sees nations and nationalism as the enemy, and vice-versa.

The battle lines have been drawn.

The urban globalists — the conscious and unconscious — have thrown their resources behind efforts to avert a return to nationalism, particularly in the US and UK, but also in Europe, Canada, Australia, and the like.

Urban globalists control most of the means of communications [is this new “means of production”; the 21st Century marxian dialectic?] and therefore control “information” and the perception of events.

“Nationalists”, then, are operating instinctively, and in darkness.

There is little doubt that the US, despite the evidence that economic recovery is at hand, could spiral into a self-destructive descent of dysfunction, dystopia, and anomie. The path toward a “second civil war” has significant parallels with the causes of the first US Civil War (1861-65). Both events — the 19th Century event and a possible 21st Century one — saw the polarization of a fundamentally urban, abstract society against a fundamentally regional, traditional society.

In some respects, it is a conflict between people with long memories (even if those memories are flawed and selective) and people to whom memories and history are irrelevant. Equally, it is a conflict between identity and materialism, with the abstract social groups (the urban populations) the most preoccupied with short-term material gain.

I have covered the US for 50 years, and my earliest view of it was, a half century ago, that its populations would inevitably polarize into protective islands of self-interest, surrounded by seas of unthinking locusts. What is ironic is that the present islands of wealth and power — the cities — have come to represent short-term materialism, as cities have throughout history.

But what is interesting is that, despite the global attention on the political/geographic polarizations occurring in the US and other parts of the Western world, there has been a reversion in other parts of the world to a sense of Westphalian or pre-Westphalian nationalism. The fact that “the West” may have ring-fenced Iran, Russia, and so on, with sanctions and other forms of isolation may well be what ensures their endur-ing status.

They have avoided the contagion of globalism.

Russia, indeed, recovered from the Soviet form of globalism in 1991.

An urban globalist “victory” over Trump and Brexit would trigger that meltdown toward a form of civil societal collapse - civil war in some form or other - as the regions disavow the diktats of the cities. That would, in turn, bring about the global economic uncertainty which could impact the PRC and then the en-tire world.

But such a conflict - physical or political - could, equally, lead to a victory for nationalism over globalism, and to the protection of currencies and values. We have seen this cycle repeated for millennia.

It is the eternal battle.


Of course many could read this article and say, "That could never happen here in America...because this is America!"

I'm gonna take a guess and say lots of other Americans said the same thing about 150 years ago...right before the Civil War broke out.

Remember, America is NOT mentioned in any Last Days prophecy so something made us fall.

Maybe after the rapture ONLY the angry people on left and right will be left behind to start slugging it out?

German Press Makes Comparison Between Turkey's President and Hitler

We know that Turkey is going to have a role to play in the Last Days....because the Bible tells me so. (Read Ezekiel 38-39)

We also know that Russia will have a role to play.

This article grabbed my attention because it was written by Russian News and speaks of Turkey and Hitler.

An article in the German newspaper Die Welt comparing Erdogan-supporting Turks in Germany with Hitler's supporters in the Sudetenland has drawn a mixed reaction from readers.

The German newspaper Die Welt has published a controversial article comparing the high level of support for Turkish President Erdogan's constitutional referendum among Turks in Germany, with the support of Sudeten Germans for Hitler in the 1930s.

"Almost two-thirds of Turkish voters in Germany voted for Erdogan's plan, even though it threatens to further curtail democracy in their homeland. In some respects, events resemble an election in 1935," historian Sven Felix Kellerhoff wrote.

​"Two-thirds of voters voted for a foreign dictator, who has eliminated the opposition in his own country and brought the media into line. They did that even though they live in a functioning state of law and are under no pressure from the government there."

"This is not about the outcome of the referendum on a new constitution for Turkey, which according to official figures, 63 percent of Turkish voters in Germany voted for. Rather, it is about parliamentary elections in the Czechoslovak Republic on 19 May 1935 when 68 per cent of Sudeten Germans, i.e. the culturally Germanized inhabitants of the Czech regions bordering with Germany and Austria, voted for Conrad Henlein's Sudeten German Party (SDP)."

There were three million Germans living in the Sudetenland, the northern and western parts of Czechoslovakia, after the collapse of the Habsburg Empire at the end of the First World War.

In the interwar period, several political parties emerged which claimed to represent Germans who were disillusioned at their loss of political and economic influence in the new state of Czechoslovakia. 

The most successful of them was the Sudeten German Party, which was formed in 1933 and received massive support from the German Nazi party. Its leader Conrad Henlein went on to demand the union of the Sudetenland with Germany in 1938.

According to Kellerhoff, Sudeten Germans had little to complain about, but still supported Hitler's puppet party in their droves thanks to a successful propaganda campaign.

"Current developments in Turkey are justifiably troubling for us and also remind us of the destructive processes of our terrible past, which should never be repeated anywhere," Facebook user Ralf Weber wrote.

For his part, Facebook user Thomas Bonk said that "people don't learn."

"We should make it easy for Turkey. The best thing to do is to close the door, forget and wait a while. When we look at the country again in a few years, we will see something that looks like our country in 1936. Imprisoned political opponents, people who don't dare open their mouths and a country in ruins," Bonk wrote.

I would say that it would not surprise me in the least if Turkey ends up in the hands of a Muslim dictator named Erdogan.  I would also not be surprised if Iran continues in the hands of a Muslim- run government where the religious leaders have all the power and you end up dead if you speak against them.

And of course we already know that Russia has fallen back into the hands of an ex-KGB operative who may one day unite Russia, Turkey and Iran with the grand plan of destroying Israel once and for all....Turkey and Iran will do it because they are Muslims who hate Jews...but Russia will do it to seize Israel's oil and natural gas discoveries, along with any other "booty" they covet.

What they don't know is that they are going to hit a buzz-saw of destruction handed out by God Almighty....and Israel won't budge an inch.

Remember, the church is the bride of Christ BUT Israel is the bride of God....and anyone who tries to besmirch her is dealt with very severely.

Ezekiel 38
18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog [leader of Russia] attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’

Danger Signs For Israel Coming From Parts of Trump Administration

I know many of us are praying for POTUS Trump and the people he surrounds himself with.  After reading this article, we should all re-double our prayer efforts that Team Trump will always remain a friend and supporter of Israel....and that they WILL NOT fall for the lies of the made-up "Palestinian" people.

It's very obvious that the folks who have (so far, anyway) rejected Christ as their savior are so upset by the shocking Trump election and the subsequent things that he has done...that they simply can't stop doing everything in their power to sabotage him.

According to this article, an uber-leftist from the Obama Camp that is very anti-Israel, has been given a seat within Team Trump.  And the State Department already seems to be turning their ship to accept more Arab lies while rejecting the Truth about Israel.

Israel and its supporters in the West are seeing danger signs coming from parts of the Trump Administration. Since taking office, the camp that views Israel as a liability and "root cause" of Islamic extremism has been gaining ground. 

That camp is at odds with those who view the Islamist ideology as the root cause and believes it must be defeated for there to be peace in the Middle East.

The biggest danger sign for America's best ally in the Middle East came with the recent release of the State Department's annual Country Reports on Terrorism. It blamed Israel for sparking terrorism while applauding the Palestinian Authority's counter-extremism efforts.

The report frames Palestinian terrorism as a response to Israeli misconduct, with no attribution to an Islamist ideology or culture with a genocidal desire to wipe Israel off the map. Palestinian terrorism is essentially presented as a form of "resistance" motivated by legitimate grievances against Israeli actions. In other words, the terrorists are misguided freedom fighters.

The identified "continued drivers of violence" are listed as a "lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive."

The treatment of the Palestinian Authority, on the other hand, was mostly positive. The report lauded its efforts in combating extremism and claimed that it had minimized the incitement of violence by Palestinian Authority officials and institutions. It went so far as to say that incitement is now "rare" and "the leadership does not generally tolerate it."

The State Department report undermines President Trump's position on Israel.

Trump yelled at Palestinian President Abbas for lying to him about the indoctrination of Palestinian children. Shortly before that meeting, Abbas had publicly stood side-by-side in Washington D.C. with Trump. Standing together, Trump said he genuinely believed Abbas was committed to peace. Abbas asserted that Palestinian children are being raised in a "culture of peace."

It is very unsettling that Trump fell for Abbas' lies at all and the White House permitted Abbas to deceive the world audience watching their event. However, Trump learned the truth, publicly changed his tune, and confronted Abbas face-to-face.

By publishing this report, the State Department is closer to Abbas' position than its own Commander-in-Chief.

The Conservative Review compared the State Department's report to the one published under the Obama Administration with Secretary of State John Kerry. It found the report by Tillerson's State Department is even more hostile to Israel than the one issued under Kerry, who furiously blasted Israel on his way out of office.

In fact, the State Department report spends more time assigning blame for terrorism to Israel than to Qatar, a massive sponsor of terrorism and extremism. One cannot help but wonder if Tillerson's pro-Qatar position and business ties to the Qatari regime had something to do with it.


We know that Team Trump has been way more Pro-Israel than the Pro-Muslim Obama was....but this report about the State Department isn't good.

Keep praying that Team Trump will recognize the wolves who are desperately trying to get in and reset the miserable relations with Israel that Team Obama had achieved.  Keep praying that the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Jesus will show him the reason that USA needs to stay Pro-Israel.

Is God Trying to Tell us Something? Yes!

Best selling author Joel Rosenberg gives his opinion on all of these natural disasters all happening so close to one another.

What in the world is going on?

Hurricane Harvey drops 33 trillion gallons of rainfall drop on the U.S. Experts say the floods are a once-in-1,000-years event. Now Hurricane Irma is bearing down on Florida. 185 mile-per-hour winds. Experts say the devastation could be "catastrophic."

At the same time, Mexico experiences the worst earthquake in a century. Record-breaking floods are devastating Asia. Half of Bangladesh is underwater. 100,000 homes are destroyed. Forty million people face severe and potentially life-threatening food and water shortages. Russia is preparing to mass upwards of 100,000 troops on the borders of three NATO countries for a massive series of war games some fear is the prelude to war. The genocidal slaughter continues in Syria. Terror attacks around the globe. North Korea threatens to nuke the United States, then tests a hydrogen bomb and long-range ballistic missiles. And tensions over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem spike and then settle, and then spike again.

People have all kinds of theories as to what is happening, but the answer is quite straightforward -- God is trying to get our attention.

These events are not random. The God of the Bible is allowing these events to shake us, to wake us, to get our attention, that we might turn to Him and ask Him to have mercy on us and help us.

The Lord said through the ancient Hebrew Prophet Haggai that He would shake the nations in the last days. “For thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. I will shake all the nations….I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations.” (Haggai 2:6, 7, 21, 22)

In the New Testament, the Lord reinforced that theme. “See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven. And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven’….Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:25-29)

The Scriptures are clear: the Lord shakes individuals and nations that we might let go of all of the flawed political, philosophical, intellectual and religions notions that we cling to that won’t give us true peace, that don’t give us real hope, that can’t bring us any security, that can’t provide forgiveness from our sins much less eternal life for our souls. The God of the Bible wants to shake us loose of such things that we might turn to Him, and to the life He offers through faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord isn’t letting America and other nations be shaken because He hates us. He’s letting us be shaken precisely because He loves us and wants us to repent and turn to Him and call out to Him, as individuals, as families, as leaders, and as entire nations.

This is a 2 Chronicles 7:14 moment, for the Church, for America, for Israel, for everyone. "If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 

May we humble ourselves and seek the Lord while He still may be found.

Just Ignore What Bible Clearly Says

It's too bad that the Nashville Statement was released right around the time that the worst hurricanes in US history were slamming or getting ready to slam.

It would have been nice if it had been a slow news day so the media could have gone ape-crap-in-a-tizzy over the fact that Bible teaching preachers and leaders who signed the Statement simply confirmed what the Bible has said all along.

That being said, it's not surprising that the LGBTQ community and all those who support it came unglued when they read it.

And sadly, it's not surprising that all sorts of "Christian" pastors and leaders also came out of the wood work to attack the Nashville Statement on Biblical sexuality.

Here's what uber-liberal Jim Wallis had to say.  Let's watch and see if he references the Bible at all to support or defend his views.

The timing of a new “manifesto” aimed against LGBTQ Christians and their allies — in the immediate aftermath of Charlottesville and in the midst of Americans rescuing each other in Texas — is more than unfortunate. In a time when the evils of racism gain new, frightening currency in our culture, and racial bigotry is being exemplified by the president of the United States with silence from most white evangelicals, some Christian leaders have determined that now is the time to declare that agreement on issues of sexual orientation and identity is a litmus test for authentic Christian faith — while not doing so for repentance from the sin, myth, and idol of white supremacy. This “Nashville Statement” exemplifies a grave mistake of public discernment and creates a more polarized division that seriously is damaging any credible evangelical witness in today’s culture. And that this is presented as the litmus test for true Christian faith sends a clear message to our Christian brothers and sisters of color.

Many Christians, including evangelicals, have been seeking to repent of the damage done to LGBTQ people by our churches, even if they still wrestle with theological issues around sexuality. In this statement, there is none of that spirit — no repentance or humility for the church’s treatment of LGBTQ Christians. Rather, the spirit of certainty and judgment in the rejecting of LBGTQ persons, exemplified by this statement, is one of the reasons a new generation of believers is leaving the church. In great contrast, Jesus’ radical call to love each other, our neighbors, those different from us, and even our enemies is painfully missing in this statement.

Also missing is any attempt to find common ground, be welcoming faith communities, and find civil and compassionate ways to dialogue and even disagree. Rather, this manifesto’s deliberate purpose seems to be to further divide the church on difficult issues. The few women signers to this statement is also indicative of the clear connection being made between the rejection of LGBTQ Christians and this group’s rejection of equality of women and their leadership in the churches.

Instead we should look for common ground, compassion, civility, and consistency as we pursue and seek to discern the heart of God on these questions.

Some of the common ground we should be able to affirm include:

Every initial of LGBTQ represents people who are beloved of God and made in the image of God.

Sexuality is indeed part of the good creation of God, who intends for it to be lived in ways that are whole, holy, and within the framework of love and commitment. For Christians, sexuality is meant to be covenantal instead of just recreational, which indeed is the spirt of the age that critically needs healthier counter-cultural alternatives.

We are still learning about sexual orientation and identity — and so this calls us more to listening and humility than certain judgement. Old cultural ideas about choices and “cures” have been undermined by the evidence, and by our experiences of the people we love and are in relationship to. People are who they are, and our churches are trying to live out what it means to accept the humanity of our brothers and sisters. LGBTQ Christians are asking to be welcomed and accepted in the body of Christ.

The Bible should indeed be central to how we decide hard questions, and biblical commitment should cross all our differences. Biblical scholarship shows these issues are more complex than we have often thought. Credible, orthodox biblical scholars have shown that the idea of committed Christian same-sex relationships were likely not something envisioned in the Scriptures or in biblical times. At least we should say that biblically committed Christians, including evangelical Christians, can and do have different interpretations of Scripture on the difficult and complicated issues of sexual orientation and identity. And Christians need to learn how to agree to disagree on these matters — which the Nashville statement commands we not do.


Yes!!  God clearly had NO IDEA that men were going to have anal sex with other men and then demand that society accept them as a married couple!!  No clue!  He was totally taken by surprise!! He also was totally clueless that women were going to copulate with animals!!  He never saw that coming...just like he never saw it coming that men would have the desire to have multiple wives!!

You see how ridiculous this argument is from Wallis??

God saw it all!  He is the beginning of all things and he is also the end of all things.  King Solomon said there is nothing new under the sun.  Men have been having sex with other men and animals from the earliest of times.  Women have been perverted since the earliest of times.

God said he detested men lying with other men.  In Leviticus he says so twice and says that men caught diddling each other should be put to death.

Paul confirms the sin of homosexual sex multiple times in the New Testament.

Romans 1
Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

1 Timothy 1
8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

The Bible says that the Gospel will be offensive to basically everyone...especially those who LOVE their sin....and have NO DESIRE to surrender to the will of their Creator.

A Warning From God, Or Just Coincidence?

Is it strange to you that America witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse and that while we were viewing it a massive hurricane called Harvey started cooking off the coast of Africa and came slamming into Texas?

Is it strange that Irma followed along a few weeks later and slammed into Florida?

Is it a coincidence that while all this is going on, the America West is being decimated by huge wildfires?

Some people might blame it all on global warming.  Others might call it a coincidence.  Other's might say it's the result of the earth groaning while creation anticipates the return of Christ and the curse being removed from earth.

Was the Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse a warning for America to repent of its sin?

One, my heart and prayers go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. I have no desire to add to their suffering. Prophecy Plus Ministries has sent a contribution. We encourage others to do the same.

Two, I am not qualified to say whether the total solar eclipse was a warning or not, but if God was warning America to repent, it is a mistake to be one of those that are ridiculing the idea. The people of Texas and Louisiana have suffered the most, but the entire U.S. is going to pay a price and the cost will keep increasing, if there is no repentance.

Three, because darkness was one of the Ten Plague warnings to Egypt’s Pharaoh to let God’s people go (Ex. 10:21-23) some Jewish rabbis believe darkness caused by an eclipse is a warning from God.

Four, the total solar eclipse was seen only in America so some Jewish rabbis believe it was a warning to America.

Five, if the total solar eclipse was a warning to America, repentance is needed all over America not just in Texas and Louisiana. To deny that America needs repentance is seriously wrong. Repentance would be good for America not bad.

Six, God told Noah to warn people that He was going to send a Flood to destroy the earth (Gen. 6:1-7:12).

Seven, God told Jonah to warn the people of Nineveh to repent or He would overthrow them in 40 days (Jonah 3:1-10). NASA and Cuneiform tablets confirm that here was an eclipse in Nineveh shortly before Jonah arrived.

Eight, God sent two angels to warn Lot that He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19).

Nine, when God sends a disaster to warn people to repent (II Chron. 7:13), if His people will humble themselves, and pray, and seek His face, and repent, He will forgive their sins and heal their land (II Chron. 7:14; Jonah 3:10).

Ten, since the sun is almost 400 times as big as the moon, the sun would have to be about 400 times farther away from the earth than the moon is for them to appear to be about the same size. That is the way it is and it is not likely to be an accident.

Eleven, Anne Graham Lotz (Billy Graham’s daughter), Mark Biltz, Steve Cioccolanti and others were preaching that the total solar eclipse could be a warning from God.

Twelve, the total solar eclipse was unusual in many ways:

a) Jerusalem, the Holy City that is associated with the Tribulation period, probably got its name from the King of Salem called Melchizedek (Gen. 14:18);

b) The sun set in Jerusalem at the exact moment the eclipse started in the U.S.;

c) The first U.S. city to experience the eclipse was Salem, Ore.;

d) The eclipse occurred over seven cities (a significant Bible number) in the U.S. named Salem;

e) It has been almost one generation since Israel became a nation in 1948;

f) It has been about six God-Days (6 X 1,000 years = 6,000 years since God created Adam;

g) The Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse will be followed by a second total solar eclipse in 2024 (about 7 years apart) and they will make an “X” over the U.S. with the center of the “X” being an area in Illinois that is often called “Little Egypt” (Darkness was one of the Ten-Plague warnings in Egypt and the only place in the U.S. that will be crossed by both eclipses is called “Little Egypt.”

Thirteen, God controls the weather and He uses it to fulfill His Word (Job 38:24-28; Psa. 135:6-7, 148:7-8; Luke 21:25).

Fourteen, on Aug. 21, 2017 Harvey was a tropical storm. Three days later, it became a Category 1 Hurricane (at 1 pm on Aug. 24). Less than 30 hours later it had grown to a Category 4 Hurricane (at 6 pm on Aug. 25). It made landfall 4 hours later (at 10 pm on Aug. 25).

Fifteen, when Harvey made landfall it got trapped by two high pressure systems. As powerful as it was, it was boxed in and it couldn’t break loose. It just kept spinning and dumping rain. Who besides God can trap a Category 4 hurricane?

There are many reasons why America needs to repent: pushing the two-state solution to divide Israel and Jerusalem, abortion; the U.S. Supreme Court redefinition of marriage, LGBT issues, the globalist effort to create a world government, violence and bloodshed all over America, silent pastors and church members, corruption in the swamp and media, and more.

Did you notice that the first item on the list is pushing the two-state solution to divide Israel and Jerusalem? Look at event number Fourteen above. Notice that Harvey went from being a tropical storm on Aug. 21, 2017 to being a Hurricane on Aug. 24, 2017.

Now notice what was going on with the peace negotiations in the Middle East: President Trump’s Advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his “negotiating team” went to Saudi Arabia and Qatar on Aug. 21, 2017, Jordan on Aug. 22, 2017, Egypt on Aug. 23, 2017 and they arrived in Israel on Aug. 23, 2017 for a next-day meeting with Prime. Min. Netanyahu on Aug. 24, 2017.

God said He will drag the nations into the battle of Armageddon for scattering the Jews and dividing the land of Israel (Joel 3:2). The total solar eclipse over the U.S. occurred on the same day Jared Kushner and his team went to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the U.S. on the same day Jared Kushner and his team met with Prime. Min Netanyahu in Jerusalem (or ancient Salem).

The total solar eclipse passed over “Little Egypt” in the U.S. one day before Jared Kushner and his team were in Egypt to discuss Pres. Trump’s “ultimate deal.”

Is there a connection between the eclipse, Jerusalem and Hurricane Harvey?

It has been said, “There are no coincidences with God.” These things are either a warning from God or coincidences. Each person should decide for their own self.

Many are reluctant to say these things are a warning from God to repent, but if they are people need to stop ridiculing it, they best get on their knees soon and the U.S. needs to end the so-called peace process immediately.

If God’s patience with America is waxing thin, there are no words to describe what America may experience in the next few weeks or months (Israel attacked – God and Magog, economic collapse, increased violence, birth pang type natural disasters, persecution, only God knows what else.


What we do know for sure is that it is ALWAYS a good time to repent of sin.  It's also ALWAYS good to pray for our leaders and to thank God for allowing us to live in the greatest nation that the modern world has ever seen.

Sadly, most churches in America are refusing to preach on prophecy and/or the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  They think that if they tell people that Jesus could return at any moment that it would scare them away!!  How strange to think that a "Christian" congregation could be scared of Jesus?

So if 50% of American's don't go to church and the the other 49% who do attend but will never hear about birth pangs, national sin, Israel's return as a nation, Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 38 or the rapture.....that leaves a VERY SMALL number of Americans who actually watch the news and wonder if the mayhem all around us has anything to do with what the Bible says is coming.

Maranatha!  Come Lord Jesus!
