the trying of your faith worketh patience…

Chart is from Curt Bowers documentary ‘Agenda: Grinding America Down’ 2010

The Naked Communist is a 1958 book by an ex FBI agent, United States author political theorist Cleon Skousen.

The author posits and seeks to describe a geopolitical strategy by which the Marxist–Leninist Soviet Union was attempting to overcome and control all the governments of the world that were not members of the Communist bloc. At the time that the book was published, during the Cold War, fear of communism was common among people in non-communist nations.

The list of alleged communist goals contained in the book was read into the Congressional Record by U.S. Congressman Albert S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida, on January 10, 1963.

President Ronald Reagan said of the book: "No one is better qualified to discuss the threat to this nation from communism. You will be alarmed, you will be informed and you’ll be glad you heard him (W. Cleon Skousen)." [1]

List of Communist goals

U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

Do away with all loyalty oaths.

Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

Gain control of all student newspapers.

Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

Control art critics and directors of art museums.

Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.

Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems.

Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

Internationalize the Panama Canal.

Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.


Proverbs 11:10  When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
Proverbs 11:11  By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

1962… a year that will live in infamy

 

1962 a year that will live in infamy

In two landmark decisions, Engel v. Vitale (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963), the US Supreme Court established what is now the current prohibition on state-sponsored prayer in schools.

Following the catastrophe of September 11, 2001 an increasing number of California public school mandated students must attend an intensive three-week course on Islam. The purpose of the plan was to insure America would not have negative connotations about Islam.

Wednesday, January 9, 2002- ASSIST News Service

As children return to school this week, following the Christmas break, 7th graders in a growing number of public schools, who are not permitted to wear a cross or speak the name of Jesus, will be required to attend an intensive three week course on Islam; a course in which students are mandated to learn the tenets of Islam, study the important figures of the faith, wear a robe, adopt a Muslim name and stage their own Jihad.
In Byron, California, parents were outraged when students came home with their handouts and were told what was being taught. Their complaints to the school principal not only were ignored, but officials of this public school, funded by tax dollars, essentially fluffed them off.
The public schools in California so stealthily slipped this course into the 7th grade curriculum that even another 7th grade teacher, Elizabeth Christina Lemings, was totally in the dark that this was being taught until her son, Joseph, who is a 7th grader in the same school where she teaches, brought home the handouts.
“We could never teach Christianity like this,” Lemings said to ANS during an on-site interview. “We can’t even mention the name of Jesus in the public schools, but over there…,” she pointed to the building next to hers, “they teach Islam as the true religion, and students are taught about Islam and how to pray to Allah.” [2]


On October 22, 2014, John Wood discovered that his daughter was being forced to repeat religious tenets of Islam as a part of her World History class assignment. She was required to write how the prophet Muhammad was visited by the angel Gabriel and preached that there is only one true god, who is Allah. The assignment made her write that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah and that the Quran is holy text.

The assignment required her to affirm that “Allah is the same god that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism” and that the “Quran is the word of Allah revealed to Mohammad in the same way that Jews and Christians believe the Torah and the Gospels were revealed to Moses and the New Testament writers.” The assignment also forced young women such as the Woods’ daughter, to fill in the following sentences: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and “Righteous women are therefore obedient.” [3]

When John Wood petitioned La Plata High School in Maryland over the Islamic indoctrination of their 11th-grade daughter in her World History class, he was met with steadfast opposition. Wood’s conversation with a La Plata vice principal “indicated that his daughter, a high school junior with college hopes, would receive zeros on her assignments on Islam if she did not complete them.”  Yes, his daughter has received a failing grade in her World History Class.


By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Ron Wagner, a Florida father, said his son’s world history book has gone too far with a lesson that teaches Muhammad is the messenger of God.

One part of the book, for instance, reads: “There is no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God,” he said, quoting from his son’s Lyman High School history book, WFTV reported.

“Students were instructed to recite this prayer as the first Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher’s instruction,” Mr. Wagner said. “For it to be mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn’t seem right.”

The chapter in the history book is called the “Rise of Islam,” and includes text of the faith’s prayers and scriptures, right from the Koran, WFTV reported.

Mr. Wagner also complained that the first 100 pages of the of the religious-based chapters that deal with Judaism and Christianity are missing — and the school district explains that omission by saying the defect, which impacted 68 books, is due to a manufacturer mistake, WFTV reported.

The school also said that the “Pillars of Islam are benchmarks in the state curriculum” and must be taught, WFTV reported. [4]


As the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, I fear your minds should be corrupted in like fashion. Take it from someone that is tracking the progress at the ground level…

Dr. William Saxton is the founder and chairman of Citizens for National Security, a nonprofit think tank biased in Boca Raton whose mission is to educate and activate U.S. citizens concerning the dangers of “homegrown” fundamentalist Islam, particularly the long tentacles of the Islamic Brotherhood. Saxton has a Harvard PhD in physics and a degree from MIT, and he’s worked as a consultant for NASA. Now he’s devoting himself full time, and without pay, to documenting what he sees as the pernicious effects of Islam in the U.S.

Saxton says he first realized the extent of the problem when he was in California, looking at his grandchildren’s textbooks. The problem isn’t limited to Florida. “This is an epidemic!” Saxton says. [5]


On June 09, 2008, I posted an article entitled…

‘the green flag will eventually succumb to the red blood’

In the article I reference some quotes by Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Gaza’s Jihadia Salafiya Islamic outreach movement, which seeks to make secular Muslims more religious, and calls for holy war against the pope. He said Christian leaders such as Benedict are “afraid” because they realize Islam is Allah’s favorite religion and they are going to hell unless they convert. The Gaza preacher declared the “green flag of Muhammad” would soon be raised over the Vatican.

The Gaza preacher said the pope and the Christian world are “panicking” because they realize “who is winning”.

“See how Islam is progressing and gaining more and more members and see the moral crisis in the West. See today the support of Islam in the Arab and Muslim world and how Islam is gaining more and more adherents in Europe and even in the United States and you understand that Islam is the future and that this dwarf pope was wrong. But I can sympathize with him. He is frustrated because he understands where things are heading.”

The ‘green flag of Muhammad’ is not atop the Vatican, but is beginning to wave proudly over the public school systems of the Untied States of America.

As the ‘green flag of Muhammad’ continues to gain preeminence in America, the sound of Rachel’s weeping and lamentations of great mourning will only grow louder.

condoning the spirit of abortion until it slithers into America’s classroom

 

Photo used by permission Fang Guo – faunggs photostream – Flickr

 

The statistics below are the (estimated) number of babies that have been murdered while safely nestled in their mothers womb.

U.S.Abortion Clock.org

U.S. – since Row Vs. Wade 1973 57,543,630

Worldwide – since 1980 1,321,899,250

Statistics were tallied at 1:57PM GMT on January 21, 2015- Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. [1]

History of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday-

President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation on January 16, 1984, designating Sunday, Jan 22, 1984 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day noting that it was the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion. President Reagan was a strong pro-life advocate who said that in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court, "Struck down our laws protecting the lives of unborn children."

Reagan issued the proclamation annually thereafter, designating Sanctity of Human Life Day to be the third Sunday in January, which represents the closest Sunday to the original January 22 date. His successor, George H. W. Bush, continued the annual proclamation throughout his presidency. Bush’s successor, Bill Clinton, discontinued the practice throughout his eight years in office, but Bush’s son and Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush, resumed the proclamation, and did so every year of his presidency. [2]

 

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members. Prior to driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived at the scene, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. [3]

A couple of things to consider

1.) the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary school was an egregious event. Most would say that goes without saying! The reason I want to make this perfectly clear is that oft times when someone tells us the truth, we do not hear the truth, but our perceptions interpret what we want to hear. There is an old adage “we see things not as they are but as we are”.

2.) evil is alive and well, not only in America, but all over the world and for the most part society is ignorant to the true source of the problem.

A good example of this can be seen in an interview the day after  the shooting between Megyn Kelly, with FOX News and Dr. Keith Ablow, a renown psychiatrist and FOX News contributor. During the course of the interview Dr. Ablow became incensed  concerning  comments made by the Governor Dan Malloy of Connecticut when he said, “evil visited our community today”. Ablow’s response was…

“STOP saying ‘evil visited us yesterday,’ NO, MENTAL ILLNESS visited us yesterday!” 

I wonder if Dr. Ablow considers ALL acts of “evil’ as being the results of “mental illness”?

Now there are many like Dr. Ablow, that think it is more palatable to the human intellect to substitute the ‘acts of evil’ with ‘mental illness’. From the human perspective, mental illness requires one look no further than the flesh, and as long as we can see it and touch it, we can understand it. I contend the acts of evil run much deeper than mental illness, but just for the record, I am not psychiatrist.

The first recorded murder in the Bible was that of Cain slaying his brother Able. I am thinking if Dr. Ablow would have lived in that day, he would have assessed this evil act, an would have surmised that Cain was mentally ill. My contention is the act of murder had nothing to do with mental illness, rather the content of Cain’s heart. It was wicked and the evil proceeded forthwith.

Dr. Ablow would probably have stood on the same ‘mental illness’ platform to define the demonic force in the man from Gadara that Jesus encountered Luke 8:26-39. Here in lies the crux of the problem, human intellect often gives place to mental illness where the real culprit is a demonic influence. The problem is, society thinks we can control mental illness as long as we give the individual enough of the right medication to settle the beast within.

Weeks following the events of what took place at Sandy Hook Elementary, facilitated debates from the most educated pundits of our society, (government leaders, doctors, lawyers and clergy from every religion) and not one, even remotely mentioned the demonic influence involved in the egregious act.

Proverbs 16:4 says “The Lord hath made all things for himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil”.

We can rest assured that nothing that happens, takes God by surprise, whether is is good or evil, even the things such as the killing of innocent children.

There is a prophecy in the word of God by the mouth of His prophet Jeremiah 31:15 in which he prophesies concerning a voice of lamentation in Ramah, it is the voice of Rachel weeping for her children. Ramah was a city just North of Jerusalem which was used as an assembly point for those Jews that were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C. The prophecy came by the mouth of Jeremiah 9 years before the last deportation. Rachel was the mother of Joseph and Benjamin was seen as weeping over the exiles.

This prophecy has a dual prophetic association. It is also associated with the slaughter of all the male children that were 2 years and younger at the decree of Herod when the Christ Child was born… Matthew 2. We are not told the specific number of children that were slaughtered but the massacre did not take God by surprise. Almost 600 years before Herod’s decree, God spoke it through His prophet Jeremiah. The voice of mother’s all across Ramah were weeping for their children that were being slaughtered at the hand of King Herod’s decree.

Now if God is aware of these type of forthcoming event and could stop it, but does not intervene, one can only surmise that God allows it for a reason.


Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Psalm 127:1-2

The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County in the state of Colorado.

The perpetrators, two senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered a total of 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, with three others being injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair then committed suicide. [4]

One of the 12 students that were killed that day was a girl name Rachel Joy Scott. On May 27, 1999, before the Congressional sub-committee on crime, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel read this poem that he had written after his daughters death.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage,
You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!


As you can see in the U.S.AbortionClock.org that the demonic spirit of abortion is not restricted to the United States …

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The bloody siege of an elite army high school Tuesday, December 16, 2014 by Taliban gunmen, which killed at least 141 students and teachers, was an apparent retaliation for a major recent army operation after years of ambivalent policies toward the homegrown Islamist militants.

“The mass targeting of children, in a military zone in the northwestern city of Peshawar, drew condemnation from around the world, as well as from across Pakistan’s political and religious spectrums” — a rare display of unity in a country where Islamist violence is often quietly accepted and sometimes defended. The attack was also condemned by Taliban leaders in Afghanistan. [5]


If we tally the three instances that have been mentioned in this post, it includes 180 souls which were both children and teachers. The comment from the Washington Post echoes the public out cry of not only what took place in Islamabad, Pakistan, but Sandy Hook and Columbine alike, while there remains a deafening silence for the innocent souls that are being slaughtered in their mother’s womb.

I Wonder if Dr. Ablow sees the abortion industry as the by-product of  ‘mental illness’ or even ‘evil’ at all?

God have mercy on America and it’s leaders that have murdered 57 million innocent children.

is your view of god creative and philosophical ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the second epistle to the Corinthians, the Spirit of God warns the church of Corinth, to beware of anyone preaching another Jesus or  gospel or bearing a different spirit.

This admonition is good advise for today, for there appears to be a lot of muddy water as to who God is, what He allows  and how He works. It’s not uncommon to hear someone say “I don’t think that God would allow this or that, or operates likes this or that, or that is NOT the god I worship!”

The problem is His ways are not our way nor His thoughts our thoughts, so when we see God do something that is not palatable to our flesh, some simply reject it as a manner in which God works. It’s NOT a creative and philosophical  way one wants to see God. When one finds him/her self in this state of mind, the mind begins to fashion a god after their own image.

modern day example of this truth…

Oprah Winfrey- http://youtu.be/Oxao4LmTMfU (video television program)

“I will say I was one of those people who used to go to church every-I grew up, as I was sharing with the last caller, you know, in the South and so going to church every Sunday, Sunday School, Baptist Training Union, Wednesday night prayer service, the whole thing, choir, all of it.
And when I moved to Baltimore, I was in my 20s, and I remember sitting in a church, you know, one of those big churches where you have to get there at, you know, 6:30 in the morning to line up for 8 o’clock service, and the minister was preaching about-it was a really good preacher-and he was preaching about how God-"the Lord thy God was a jealous God and the Lord thy God would condemn us for whatever," and I remember I-I had a spiritual aha!
There. And I was in my late 20s, and I suddenly thought, "How can this God who is all loving and all powerful, why would God be jealous of me?" [1]

It is pretty apparent that Oprah is not getting spiritual direction from the Word of God and Spirit of Truth, so New Age “spiritual teacher” Ulrich (Eckhart) Tolle has filled this role. Oprah quotes from his book ‘ A NEW EARTH ’…

"My favorite quote is in the first chapter," says Winfrey during one of these webinars. "Man made God in his own image. The eternal, the infinite and the un-nameable reduced to a mental idol that you had to believe in and worship as my God or your God." [2]

When the mind has to compute the different attributes of God such as love, peace, blessings, tranquility, etc… these attributes are readily accepted as to how  we view God, but the same mind struggles with the judgment of God. It runs counter-productive to our creative and philosophical view of God.

the vial judgments poured out upon the world…

Rev 16:1  And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
Rev 16:2  And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
Rev 16:3  And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
Rev 16:4  And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
Rev 16:5  And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
Rev 16:6  For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
Rev 16:7  And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
Rev 16:8  And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
Rev 16:9  And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Rev 16:10  And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
Rev 16:11  And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
Rev 16:12  And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
Rev 16:13  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
Rev 16:14  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The judgment mentioned in Revelation speaks of pain, not only in intensity but duration. So grievous,  that inhabitants gnaw his/her  tongue for pain. Important note “yet the world will not repent of their deeds”.

The afore mentioned judgment in Revelation is prophetic and according to the words of Christ, are future and He states the world has never seen the like or will until that day…

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Mat 24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

To give us some perspective, I would like for you to consider a period of God’s judgment in the history of the nation Israel. Joram is king over the northern kingdom in Samaria (845BC) ,when Benhadad, king of Syria locks the city down. In those days, the enemy would encamp around a fortified city not allowing sustainable goods into the city. Once the city was starved, in weakness they would surrender or fall to defeat. Samaria finds themselves in dire straits and under the judgment of God.

the judgment of God can get very severe…

2Ki 6:24  And it came to pass after this, that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.
2Ki 6:25  And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.
2Ki 6:26  And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.
2Ki 6:27  And he said, If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?
2Ki 6:28  And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.
2Ki 6:29  So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son.
2Ki 6:30  And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh.
2Ki 6:31  Then he said, God do so and more also to me, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat shall stand on him this day.

When a city gets hungry enough for a mother to eat her child, that pretty severe. Anything humanity suffer on the earth today will pale in comparison to the day of the Revelation.

Can this measure of judgment come to America? If so, when? Rest assured, she is not ready.

modern day spiritual taboo…

Hindu god Shiva- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Sri Maha Mariamman Temple

Shaivism is the oldest of the four major sects of Hinduism. Shaivas believe that Shiva is the Supreme Being and consider him All and in all, the creator, preserver, destroyer, revealer and concealer of all that is. In the Hindu religion, Shiva is revered as the quintessential  destroyer. According to Hinduism, as ‘the destroyer’, his role is to destroy all the worlds at the end of creation and dissolve them into nothingness.

* * * * *

In the second epistle of Peter we find that creative and destructive power rest in YAHWEH, and Him alone.

2Pe 3:1  This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2Pe 3:2  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2Pe 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2Pe 3:14  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
2Pe 3:15  And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
2Pe 3:16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
2Pe 3:17  Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
2Pe 3:18  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

 


a nation’s sin…

All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.
Deu 8:2  And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
Deu 8:3  And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Deu 8:4  Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
Deu 8:5  Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
Deu 8:6  Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
Deu 8:7  For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;
Deu 8:8  A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;
Deu 8:9  A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
Deu 8:10  When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
Deu 8:11  Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
Deu 8:12  Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
Deu 8:13  And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Deu 8:14  Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
Deu 8:15  Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
Deu 8:16  Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
Deu 8:17  And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
Deu 8:18  But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Deu 8:19  And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
Deu 8:20  As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.

America will be without excuse.


repentance – a nation’s leaders…

A Presidential Proclamation

Whereas, the Senate of the Unitewd States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme  Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.


And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence  upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in  humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy  and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures  and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are  subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear  that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a  punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of  our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the  choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace  and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation  has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand  which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us;  and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these  blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated  with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity  of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess  our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Abraham Lincoln –1863


repentance – the people of God…

Dan 9:3  And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
Dan 9:4  And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; Dan 9:5  We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
Dan 9:6  Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
Dan 9:7  O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
Dan 9:8  O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
Dan 9:9  To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;
Dan 9:10  Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
Dan 9:11  Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
Dan 9:12  And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.
Dan 9:13  As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
Dan 9:14  Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
Dan 9:15  And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
Dan 9:16  O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.
Dan 9:17  Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.
Dan 9:18  O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
Dan 9:19  O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 

I fear  that what the LORD requires to stay His judgment upon America is spiritual taboo!

the city’s demise…

How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces has become a slave. She weeps bitterly in the night, with tears on her cheeks; among all her lovers she has none to comfort her; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her; they have become her enemies. Lamentation 1:1-2

arrows winged with the Constitution of the United States of America

 

“As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill.”- Helen Keller

God is light, and in him is no darkness at all!

The Christmas season conjures up the spiritual warfare that seems to be waxing stronger with each new year. The war is between light and darkness as the darkness vies for spiritual space that light used to possess. The world of darkness feigns that they just want equal opportunity to dwell in the same space with light. Now there is a spiritual principle that God has given evidence of in the physical realm. Light and darkness cannot dwell in the same space. Darkness is the absence of light. Even when a small amount of light is present, the darkness has to give place to the light. Herein lies a very important truth, darkness cannot suppress light, darkness only exist in the absence of light.

The systematic removal of Light

Evidence of this spiritual struggle has just taken place in Tallahassee, FL. Last year the Satanic Temple of New York, petitioned for a permit to erect a display, giving place to Satan and his realm of darkness, next to the nativity scene at the Florida State Capitol, but the permit was rejected as “offensive”.

The display that was to be placed next to the nativity scene in Tallahassee consisted of a kiosk that showed an angel falling from  heaven into the bed of hell, with a scripture reference from Isaiah 14:12 

“How are you fallen from heaven O Day Star, son of Dawn”

This year, the state of Florida allowed the Satanic Temple display after the group applied for a 2014 permit with the legal backing of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. [1]

While this is going on in Tallahassee, the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple, secured rights to place a  display at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing. Their display consisted of the snake from the Garden of Eden sitting in front of a pentagram, offering a book representing “knowledge” as a gift.

Michigan lawmaker Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge), made the statement "I will not allow this Satanic group to hijack the CHRISTmas season for their message…The ‘Snaketivity’ display represents darkness while we celebrate the light." [2]

While the ‘snake’ is slithering through Florida and Michigan, he is in Oklahoma as well. Once again the Satanic Temple of New York has partnered with the ACLU in an attempt to force the state of Oklahoma to remove the  Ten Commandments that is erected on the steps of the Oklahoma State Capitol, or they will have to allow the erection of a 7-foot Satanic statue that depicts Baphomet, or Sabbatic goat, flanked by two children. [3]

The last of examples I will share for today is The Oklahoma City Civic Center rented the venue out for the purpose of Black Mass, to The Dakhma of Angra Mainyu — which is headed by a tattooed registered sex offender with the moniker “The Dark Lord” — for $420. “The center can’t deny use of the facility to any group based on their beliefs”, officials said. [4]

Notice the verbiage of the official…

“The center can’t deny use of the facility to any group based on their beliefs”. 

The weapon that is being wielded by the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, the Satanic Temple, the ACLU and  Americans United for the Separation of Church and State is the Constitution of the United States to espouse their satanic doctrine. Arrows winged with our own liberties and freedoms are seemingly keeping us from preventing such grievous wickedness from gaining a foothold in our society. It seems that the same principles of Helen Keller’s quote is well in play here.

Contrast this with the guidelines of the Old Testament Law…

Deu 18:9 -  When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
Deu 18:10 -  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Deu 18:11 -  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deu 18:12 – For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Lev 20:26 -  And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
Lev 20:27 -  A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

… the removal was necessary to inure the wickedness would not corrupt the entire nation.

The wiles of the devil

Consider the scripture reference from Isaiah on the kiosk in Tallahassee, understanding that Satan is known for twisting and bending the scriptures to promote his cause. The complete rendering of Isaiah: 14:12 includes something very important that was left off of the verse by the Satanic Temple.

Isa 14:12- How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

The Hebrew word that is translated “weaken” is châlash; khaw-lash’
A primitive root; to prostrate; by implication to overthrow, decay: – discomfit, waste away, weaken.

The Devil is a liar and a murderer from the beginning. He is…

Abaddon (destroying angel)

Apollyon (destroyer)

Antichrist (opponent of the Messiah)

… and America is giving place to him?

I have taken the liberty to visit additional scripture from the same prophet. There were six woes pronounced upon Judah for their willful forsaking of God’s word and their following of Israel, the northern kingdom, into the same sins. I have listed two of the six, which will fit the bill quite well…

Isa 5:18-  Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
Isa 5:19-  That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
Isa 5:20-  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

… the next two versus speaks to their demise.

Isa 5:24- Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Isa 5:25-  Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcasses were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

As we see the spirit of darkness gaining preeminence, we can only surmise that God is removing His Light from our society.

America will not find blessings in 2015. Pray God will have mercy on her.

killing God

 

LucasCranach_Massacre_of_the_Innocents

The Massacre of the Innocents (detail) by Lucas Cranach the Elder (c. 1515), National Museum in Warsaw 

The above painting is Cranach’s depiction of the biblical narrative of infanticide by Herod the Great, the Roman-appointed King of the Jews. According to the Gospel of Matthew,[1]

When the Magi had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. Get up, he said, take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him. So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son." When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old or under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: "A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." Matt. 2:13-18

The purpose of Herod’s order to kill all the boys surrounding Bethlehem, two years and younger, had one specific child as its target, Immanuel, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, the ONE child the wise men had traversed afar to worship. The rest of the children caught up in the murder were mere collateral damage, which can be likened to the innocent babies that are slaughtered (57 million+ since 1973) at the hand of the abortion industry.

Herod never considered his decree as an attempt to “kill God”, his only focus was the prophecy concerning a child that was to be “the king of the Jews”… political in nature… sounds all too familiar!

Now Satan (the spirit behind the curtain), quite the contrast. He had a very specific agenda, it was to kill the Messiah. After all he is a liar and a murderer from the beginning, and the lust of the father, his children will do.

 


America’s Killing of God-

“gott ist tot” – German translation- “God is dead”

Gott ist tot is the all familiar quote by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It first appears in Nietzsche’s 1882 collection The Gay Science (German: Die fröhliche Wissenschaft), in sections 108 (New Struggles), 125 (The Madman), and for a third time in section 343 (The Meaning of our Cheerfulness). It is also found in Nietzsche’s classic work Thus Spoke Zarathustra (German: Also sprach Zarathustra), which is most responsible for popularizing the phrase. The idea is stated in "The Madman" as follows: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it? — Nietzsche, The Gay Science, Section 125, tr. Walter Kaufmann [2]

At face value, the quote has quite the negative connotation, imagine man’s futile attempt to “kill God”.

The Philosophy Index, a philosophical think tank, that provides  interpretations of philosophical works and an overview of the basics in philosophy, says the quote is often taken out of context.

 

The meaning of the phrase is often misunderstood — many have interpreted that Nietzsche believed in a literal death or end of God. Instead, the line points to the western world’s reliance on religion as a moral compass and source of meaning.

Nietzsche’s works express a fear that the decline of religion, the rise of atheism, and the absence of a higher moral authority would plunge the world into chaos. The western world had depended on the rule of God for thousands of years — it gave order to society and meaning to life. Without it, Nietzsche writes, society will move into an age of nihilism. Although Nietzsche may have been considered a nihilist by definition, he was critical of it and warned that accepting nihilism would be dangerous. [3]

 

ni·hil·ism ˈnīəˌlizəm,ˈnēəˌlizəm/

noun -the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often in the belief that life is meaningless.

synonyms:
skepticism, negativity, cynicism, pessimism;

  • PHILOSOPHY-extreme skepticism maintaining that nothing in the world has a real existence.
  • HISTORICAL-the doctrine of an extreme Russian revolutionary party circa 1900, which found nothing to approve of in the established social order.

The Philosophy Index’s take on what Nietzsche’s thoughts on nihilism, and what his quote truly meant, is the topic for consideration.

 


What would America, devoid of a moral compass look like?

What would the Western world that had depended on God for hundreds of years, which gave order to society and meaning to life look like if they forsook the same?

Spend some time watching the news as to what is happening in the world, more importantly, what is happening in America.

The culprit is not  nihilism, the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often in the belief that life is meaningless, it is a society that is devoid of Yahweh and His Messiah. What Herod attempted and failed to do at the birth of Jesus, the religious folk of Christ day attempted the same, yet NO man took His life, He laid it down, an offering for sin. He who knew no sin, became sin that we might have His righteousness.

As America continues to allow God’s presence and influence to be pushed from her society, we shall surely see the demise of the same. Consider the following admonition…

Mat 12:43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 
Mat 12:44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

Mat 12:45  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

… Just look at the United States of America.
