What to expect when the cat can not catch its tail

Before your eyes to be read, is some of what is needed for those wanting to understand the conflicts between the Israelis/Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. It will go beyond that and informs readers what the world can expect in the future. As Arab/Muslim hate for Israel festers, urged along by many non Arab/Muslim nations. And associated human rights groups, accusing Israel of fostering its own Holocaust upon the Palestinian people.

God is good, great, and just, giving his word which can be trusted. Trusted to stand by his word, which is, that Israel would be a great nation. Blessing Israel and making the very name of Israel great. Defining the Israeli presence in the world as a blessing. Here is one of histories greatest disclaimers. Made by God Almighty himself, when he declared that He would bless them that bless Israel and curse them that curse Israel. Then promising that all families of the earth will be blessed because of Israel. (cf. Genesis 12:1-3). A rather profound disclaimer of words which most of the world is in rebellion against.

As to whether God is good, great, and just as He speaks in behalf of Israel over all other people and nations. That is an individual judgment call which most likely resonates emphatically with NO! And, it’s consequences are playing themselves out on the world stage.

The greater conflict between Israel and the Arab/Muslim world is a struggle over God’s words. Where God said, “The land shall not be sold forever for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with me. And in all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the land,” Leviticus 25:23-24. Redemption for the land meaning passed on from family to family, generation to generation.

Plain and simple, all the lands of Abraham belong to Israel. But because of their sin, God dispersed the Jews to the four corners of the earth, Deuteronomy 28:63-68, note verse 64 in particular, “And the LORD shall scatter you among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there you shall serve god’s, which neither you or your fathers have known, even wood and stone. The verses on both sides of verse 64 provide a short summary of Jewish suffering through out history.

Making the Jews homeless and landless for a time. In Joel 3:2, we find this history. “I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will judge them there as my people and for my heritage, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” That scriptural prophecy is the crux of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Along with turmoil through out the Arab/Muslim region because those lands are populated with countries that are on Israeli lands.

But God promised to return them to their lands which had its beginning in 1948, when a United Nations mandate created the nation of Israel. Which amounted to the fulfillment of a prophecy echoed by the prophet Ezekiel, who said, Therefore, thus saith the Lord GOD, “I have raised up My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their shame. But you O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come home. For indeed, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins shall be ruins rebuilt. I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the LORD,” Ezekiel 36:7-11. Tip: Seeking Gods favor for whatever your needs are then stand with Israel!

But the governments of this world are in rebellion, not only against God’s word, but the restoration and of the re-population of Israel. Having survived 70 years of festering rebellion. Which keeps exploding over, and over, from within the Gaza Strip. From Jihadists insurgents and missile attacks. One thing is certain, as Israel enters its 71st year of statehood will be the continued ratcheted up rhetoric to destroy Israel and the United States.

Complicated by antagonist from non-Arab/Muslim governments like the United Nations and the European Union. Attempting to backtrack Israeli birth rights. Which will have the following consequences, “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all peoples round about, when they shall be in siege against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut to pieces though all nations of the earth be gathered together against it,” Zechariah 12:2-3.

How bad will will these times be? Jesus himself answers that question when he said, “And except those days should be shortened, there should be no flesh saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened,” Matthew 24:22.

There you have it in a thumb nail sketch, all that is needed to understand the tumultuous times that still awaits the world community. There once was an expectation that the United States would be able to cure not only America’s needs but also the needs of the world community. But as America moves further and further away from God the greater are its failures. Because our government puts all of its energies into diplomacy designed to serve the gods of wood and stone.

Some lessons are never learned despite the cat continuing to chasing its tail. So goes the way of America, when redemption of the nation is found in the word of God. There is no redemption from the depravity of serving the gods of wood and stone. With there complex and varied peripheral instabilities draining the nation. Despite the depleted oxygen in the nations lungs causing all that is valued as American to collapse. That is the journey of modern America. Come quickly, Lord Jesus because the air is really getting thin.

Indeed a thumb nail sketch of an ancient journey to modern times. But here are a few truths Americans should know but most don’t. Interested in learning more? Like America being conquered by a foreign power. “You have been trapped, O Babylon, And you are not aware; you have been found and also caught, because you have contended against the LORD.” (cf. Jeremiah 50:24). Babylon here is picturesque of America and her dreadful end! Being formulated right now from the book of Revelation chapter thirteen.

never will there be a 2 state solution between Israel & the Palestinians

As most political junkies know, the Palestinian leadership made their historic bid for statehood before the United Nations on Friday, 23 September 2011. It was historic because it represents the first time in history that the Palestinians have taken their bid directly to the United Nations. Taking a hard stance that no negotiations will occur until Israel agrees to accept there predetermined terms for talks. With out conceding that Jews have a God given right to exist, as does the state of Israel. Both of whom the Palestinians want to see annihilated. In the end, the Palestinian leadership is hopeful that the United Nations will eventually by legislation create a Palestinian state in accordance with Palestinian terms.

It is just amazing that such a small piece of land with so few people could generate so much attention. Causing the powerful and influential to gather, hoping to find resolution for the grievances between the Israeli and the Arab Muslim world. It is estimated that 300 million Arab Muslims which represents 60 times the population of Israel. Resting on a land mass 640 times the size of Israel can not realize their goal which is to annihilate Israel. So they had to resort to the United Nations, for what they are unable to accomplish by violent force.

So why not by force? The answer is found in Genesis 12:1-3, Now the LORD had said to Abram. “Get out of your country, from your family, and from your father’s house. To a land that I will show you. I will make Israel a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless them that bless you, and curse them that curse you. And in you all the families of earth shall be blessed.”

From that should come the realization, that the Israeli, Arab conflict is one that pits good against evil. Because anything contradictory to God’s commands, is evil. And because it denies the peoples of the world what God promised to do for them. The good being Israel and the Christian world. God promised to bless those who bless Israel, Genesis 12:3. With the evil being the Arab Muslim world whom God said He would curse. Those concepts must be understood in order to understand our contemporary world. There will be no peace between the Arab Muslim world and Israel. Therefore; no peace in the world because the nations will, or will not bless Israel, even though the community of nations has everything to gain by blessing Israel.

Despite the good intentions of the United Nations with a primary focus on brokering peace. Their peaceful resolutions between Israel and the Palestinians appeal will be for naught! Can the world community ever expect the United Nations broker peace between the parties. Not according to God!

It is not the intention of this writer to argue with those, who see the effort of the United Nations from a different perspective. But rather, the purpose is to establish God’s perspective from the Bible concerning all nations; not just Israel and the Palestinians. And to declare the role of Christendom among the community of nations.

First a quick look at what the Bible declares to be God’s perspective concerning the community of nations. These words are recorded in the Book of Isaiah. “Behold the nations are like a drop in a bucket. And are counted as the small dust on the scales,” Therefore; “All nations before Him are as nothing, and they are counted by Him as less than nothing,” Isaiah 40:15a; 17. The point here is that the community of nations just are not important to God. Because, not much good emanates from them. Good must be understood in terms of righteousness, as spelled out, through out the Bible.

What is important to God are the people who reside within those nations. The focus of Christians should be upon those people. Every generation has a particular responsibility to God. It goes back centuries, with God promising Abraham greatness through a land of his own. With Jerusalem playing significant and important roles through out Israeli history. The Jews have not always been God’s ideal people. Having disappointed God numerous time, which includes their rejection of Jesus Christ as their and the worlds Messiah. And Israel has suffered in the past, and will continue to suffer for their rejection of Jesus Christ as their Messiah. But God announced that Israel has been pardoned for her sins as a result of a doubling of the punishments, note Isaiah 40:2. That doubling of punishments is still unfolding today on the world scene. And will play out in catastrophic ways for Israel, and the world community of nations. No nation or its people will be exempt.

Wagons of debris of what once was Islamic

Hungry and thirsty for knowledge that will help you understand current events. Then master what the Bible teaches. This, and other discussions can reveal the knowledge of God, as it unfolds before our modern world.

George Washington, while in Ireland, 02 December 1783, said, “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.”

A careful examination of Muslim behavior any where upon this earth. Should convince Americans that Muslims do not represent that respectable stranger coming to our shores. Their behavior shows Muslims to be the oppressors and the prosecutors of all people who reject Islam. Therefore, they have not earned the right to participate in the American experience.

Within our boarders, the nation has at least six million Muslims. Six million people who name Islam as their religion. A people who accept the Qur’an as the authentic word of god. This god to them is Allah. Allah gave the Muslim world a prophet. They refer to him as their master, and his name is Muhammad.

Muhammad, was sleeping one night in a cave. A place were he prayed and meditated. He was awakened, and was told that he was to be the messenger of god. In fright, he went to is wife begging that she cover him until the terror passed. But this was to no avail because again he was told. Oh! Muhammad, you are the messenger of god. Later the angel Gabriel re-affirmed his destiny telling Muhammad that he was indeed the messenger of god.

This padre does not accept the authenticity of the Islamic assertions concerning Gabriel’ appearance to Muhammad. It is fantasy, and make believe exercised upon the world community. In order to claim commonality with Judaism and Christianity as God’s voice speaking to humanity.

This same Gabriel appeared to the Old Testament prophet, Daniel. Helping him understand his Messianic visions, Daniel 9:21-27. Centuries later Gabriel came to a Jewish temple to tell the priest Zacharius that the birth of his son would be John the Baptist, Luke 1:5-25. Who was to prepare the way for Jesus. Then Gabriel came to Mary, telling her that she had been chosen give birth to Jesus Christ, Luke 1:26-38.

It is said of Gabriel, in the Bible, that he stands in the very presence of God, as God’s personal messenger. Gabriel defined himself as one sent by God to show glad tidings, John 1:19. What were these combined glad tidings? Messages that would usher in God’s forerunner John the Baptist. Who would announce the great one, Jesus Christ. Who would establish a revolutionary movement called Christianity.

The Bible makes no reference to Gabriel appearing to a prophet named Muhammad. As fact God’s chosen Jew to offer His redemptive power to the Jew and Gentile world was Jesus Christ. Islam must be rejected, and the Paul’s advice implemented without compromise. Failure to do puts the church and nation at great risk. The church must take leadership responsibility to rid it self of its Muslim population. Paul argued, “Nevertheless, what sayith the scriptures? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar mother of Islam) and her son (Ishmael the founder of Islam); for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman (Isaac became the heir of the promises made to Abraham through to the very birth of Jesus Christ).

Muhammad, is the Islamic Warrior Prophet. An Islamic creation to steal the promises given to Isaac. Paul said, no way and so should Christendom today! Because Islam is a political military movement that uses the camouflage of religion which is dedicated to the destruction of both the Jews, Christians, and other non Muslims. The ultimate goal of Islam is an Islamic world.

Gabriel told Daniel, John the Baptist and Mary that Jesus, the Prince of Peace would be born. But this prophetic peace, will only come after humanity has made such a mess of things. Muslims are, and will continue to be major contributors to our global mess. So destructiveness will be the the worlds community experience with Muslims. Eventually Jesus will return to earth, and establish His kingdom in order to save humanity from annihilation, Matthew 24:22.

In the meantime, Christians have the responsibility to prepare the way for our Savior’s return! How can that be done? End the growth of the Islamic people in our country. Work to close and eliminate the formation of their military fortresses that they call mosques through out our nation. Because, its from those fortresses that they emerge to attack us. Since 9/11 they have had more failures than successes. But as their numbers increase, so will their successful attacks. So its time to stop the wagon from pulling the horse, and to reverse the process. By filling those wagons with the debris of what was once Islamic.

In the meantime there will be no peace in the Middle East, the center of Islamic power. Israel will know no peace because Islamic governments like Iran assert that Israel has no right to existence. The United States will not know peace. Because Islamic powers in the Middle East, holds the United States responsible for the protection of Israel, and the dismal fate of Muslims in the Middle East. Their dismal fate exists because they reject all that Jesus Christ can do for them. Starting with the saving of their dismal souls.

What this world conflict really boils down to is who is going to control Jerusalem. The place of pivotal importance to Jews, Christians and Muslims. Neither Jews, Christians or Muslims are about to relinquish the holy significance of Jerusalem to the other, who claims its jurisdiction.

This is what the Old Testament says is going to eventually occur in Jerusalem. God will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, Zechariah 14:2. Then God will fight against those nations; verse two. Jesus will stand upon the Mount of Olives which is before Jerusalem, verse four. And Jesus shall be King over all the earth; verse nine. … there shall be no more destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited, verse eleven. That is how the Middle East crisis is going to end; according to the Bible.

So some might wonder, why not just allow history to take its prophetic course? Not an option because of the misery and death Muslims will inflict upon the world. Look around, and see how barbaric Islamic rule is once Muslims become the majority in any part of the world. Is that what you want for yourself, family and friends?

Americans should find no comfort in the growth of Islam in the United States. A political/military movement employing Islamic teaching for the demise of Jews and Christians. Along with the many people in America, who understand God outside of our traditional religious boundaries, and the many who hold to no religious belief. Such intolerance from the teachings of the Qur’an must be soundly rejected. Muhammad in the seventh century followed by others to our current century announce boldly our destruction. Therefore, the six million Muslims, if devout follower of Muhammad, and affirming the teachings of the Qur’an; must be excluded from Washington’s, “Bosom of America.” Fill those wagons Christ Souldiers and make those horses, U.S. government pull the load.

If needed, seek out those who can help you expand upon the topics of this discussion. Knowledgable people who can weave secular and religious notions concerning the future. From a theological perspective, it is called the doctrine of future things. Referred to as the doctrine of Eschatology. Perhaps there is no better way to substantiate eschatology than through the unfolding of secular events. As they harmonize themselves with current events that were said to occur, but separated by centuries of biblical writings.

Especially today with the varied, and very complex mixtures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam as powers shaking the worlds foundation with such great uncertainty. These three religions, at this particular time in our world history will determine the worlds future.

It will not be the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations. Because politicians, with an agenda of diplomacy do not understand this 21 century paradigm. Especially as it relates to the Middle East and its Arab/Islamic problem.

A concentrated effort must be given to Islam. Because Islam, represents the most diabolic threat to the worlds survival since Nazism. Muslims will continue to be the most imminent threat of the 21 century to global peace and economic security. And as long, as Muslims are allowed to roam our respective western nations. They will continue to tear civility to nothingness because that is Islams history. Muslims have always been responsible for global instability with their Muhammad war tactics. Getting away with it by using the camouflage of religion. Thus allowing Muslim infiltration to grow like an incurable cancer. Resulting in much suffering and more deaths for Americans. Unless the world community, specifically the United States wakes up to save itself from this global menace. Which will only occur, when the people of Christendom steps up, and makes the government the servant of the people. Because the people fear Islam, and can’t understand why the U.S. government has become bed partners with the evils of Islam.

y islam is evil


One winter’s day, a farmer found a snake frozen stiff with the cold, and moved by compassion, he picked it up and put it in his bosom. But with the warmth it’s natural instinct returned, and it gave its benefactor a fatal bite. As he died, he said, “I have got what I deserve for taking pity on an evil creature.”

This story shows that even the greatest kindness cannot change a bad nature. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“Evil For Good”)

Evil what is it? These are times that try man’s soul. Because, a great evil is sweeping across America, and its been diagnosed as Islam.

And here is the diagnosis, from the Word of God. “And he shall be a wild man; his hand (Ishmael father of Islam) will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell among his brethren,” Genesis 16:12.

Paul’s advice centuries go is good for today. “But as he (Ishmael father of Islam) who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him, (Isaac) who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what does the scripture say? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar mother of Islam) and her son, (Ishmael) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” Galatians 4:29-30.

Islam is a political legalistic system that uses the camouflage of religion to wage its war against America at home. While not exempting the rest of the world community, especially Israel.

The kindness and generosity of America will experience the death bite of Islam, unless Americans, and in particular the church wakes up and destroys these creatures of death.

Almost daily, one can check the globes scores of media outlets, and discover that Muslims murdered people, somewhere every day, who meant them no harm. In this 21st century, Islam is the only religion behaving in such a insidious way. Doing so in the name of their God and his prophet.

Someday, and maybe sooner than later, while dying let the nation not say, We have gotten what we deserve for taking pity on such evil creatures.

A teddy bear named Muhammad

An incident in the news occurred a few yesterdays ago that reverberated around the civil world but was puzzle for most. Causing people to wonder, why all the fuss over a teddy bear? Which from many aspects, it is tragic. Because it indicates a lack of appreciation, for the real horrors facing the world. And worse yet, the horrors that unsuspecting people might someday experience in what use to be a free and open western society. It has nothing to do with people being stupid to occurring world events. But it has everything to do with far to many people marginalizing the influence, and threat of Islam. This is especially true for far to many Americans. Many Americans think of Muslims as being “weirdos and sickos.” Therefore, posing no threat to the United States, which is a dreadful mistake.

The teddy bear teacher was, Gillian Gibbons. She is from Liverpool, England. She taught school in Sudan at a Muslim school. One day the class decided to name a teddy bear Muhammad. She was arrested, and charged with insulting Islam’s Prophet. Soon she was convicted and sentenced to 15 days in jail; followed by deportation. The civilized Western world found this to be unconscionable in the 21 century. More shocking was the reaction of Muslims in Sudan. Who took to the streets demanding her execution over a teddy bear named Muhammad.

The west, and in particular, the people of United States, excluding the government, needs to learn, and understand how Islamic theology and sharia law functions. Excluding the U.S. government because it has hopelessly drowned itself in the pluralism of multiculturalism.

If America is to be saved from this Muslim menace it will be because of an awakened American public. It must come from within the determination of believers in Christ, who exist outside of traditional church mainstream or otherwise. Categorized as denominational churches, who exist under a particular umbrella or free lancers of suspicious ideologies called non-denominationalist. Both divisions represent one of Christendoms greatest curses because it inhibits across the board cooperation which is desperately needed if Islam is to be defeated.

And as people are awakened, they will discover that more than one billion Muslims populate 57 countries. These Muslims are moving in unification to impose sharia rule and Koranic values wherever they reside. This should be a major concern for each of us in our individual homelands. This is according to Bat Ye’or, born in Egypt and now a British citizen living in Switzerland. Who is the author of several books about Islam. One of them, The Dhimmi:Jews and Christians under Islam. But like many others, she is like the hen who calls fox in the hen house. With no one taking the situation seriously, until they come for a hen only to find the hen house empty. Let us hope that is not what happens to our western style democracies with our open societies. Both of which are repugnant to Islam

It’s a very different world out there today. It use to be that differing political ideologies caused global conflicts and wars. Today it’s the ideologies of religion that are causing global conflicts and wars through nation states. In a way the varied, and complex mixtures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam empower these states to defend a religious ideology and not a political one. However, it’s a paradigm the west can’t understand and it puts them in great danger. But it’s clearly understood by Israel that their nation is not in danger because of its political ideologies. Rather its their religion that puts Israel at risk. And, the Arab/Muslim world clearly understands this shifting paradigm as a shift in their favor. Giving them a determination to destroy everything that isn’t Islamic.

Much more is to learned about this Islamic phenomenon that is gaining momentum as it races across the years of the 21 century. Forcing once powerful nations to bow in humble servitude to Islamic demands. Can the United States be spared from such Islamic servitude? The answer is yes, if people, who make up the body of Jesus Christ become determined to deny Islam its conquests.

So mobilize, as home churches, and deny Islam what it wants most, America. Lack the know how? Help is available through diligent web searches.

A John perspective about tomorrow

Do historians record events with a particular prejudice? Determined to give events a slant favored by one or more special interest groups? Of course they do, and it’s why history is  calculated from a prejudicial perspective.

For instance, historians are always chasing the powerful and the perceived influential for the latest scoop concerning the Israeli/Arab Muslim dispute. Perhaps a historians dream come true occurred several years ago. When one of  the greatest attempts to find a resolution for that conflict occurred, in late November 2007, at Annapolis, Maryland. When 50 nations, including 17 Arab states gathered; attempting to lay a format for negotiations to bring peace to the Middle East.

Historians from all those nations were busy putting together data telling the story about that historic conference from their prejudicial perspective. Because, that’s what secular historians are all about. And as sure as the calendar turns from one day to the next this history will be studied from many different perspectives by tomorrow’s scholars and students. It is a way that nations guarantee a historical perspective that is favorable to their legacy. And as students are taught the efficacy of that legacy; politicians are assured a favorable place in history. Now you know why politicians have such a fowl smell. And history isn’t objective, despite their insistence otherwise.

And the only thing that changes is one day to the next, and the years roll on. And these students grow up, and perpetuate the same falsehoods as scholars, politicians and religionist. Of course, this done from their own prejudicial perspective because secular history is all about preserving a particular nation states rightful place in history, even when some to many nation states should be condemned by their historians which of course includes the United States. It’s how governments use historians and religionist to successfully peddle wrongs as right.

They say from the earliest ages possible students were taught, God, family and country. It’s a lie because what is really desired is for academics to teach country, family and God. It’s done in subtle ways, like the ways images are promptly displayed. Like the flag, reciting the pledge of allegiance, singing of the national anthem, reciting of the Lord’s prayer, Bible on a teachers desk and the display of the ten commandments. And academics proved it true, and the church went along with it, as anything offensive to country, family and God was removed. Arriving at yesterday, all that remains is the pledge of allegiance and a moment of silence. And today, all that remains is the pledge of allegiance with out students placing a hand over their heart confirming an allegiance to God. And guess what, in some classrooms is a posted notice advising students that if the pledge of allegiance violates their conscience they can remain silent. Oh, could it be? Yes it is! It’s apart of yesterday also because the pledge of allegiance has been mostly discontinued. In its place is a useless process called the morning show. The morning show might include academic and athletic achievements, or student achievements as community volunteers. Including any unusual teacher accomplishments. What is easy to see is that God has been dropped from the equation all together. And now you, know what’s wrong with America. How do you know that it’s wrong? America is becoming a cesspool of depravity! The problem with depravity is that over time it becomes the new normal.

And if, you want to understand history before the scholars, politicians and historians give you 50 different versions. About the Israeli/Arab Muslim conflict because nothing has change since 2007, except that it’s 2017. By the way from that Annapolis conference, of scholars, western politicians the historians won that historical debate because of the 50 nations only 19 were from the Middle East.

Understanding history, is made so, from a history book called the Bible. The Bible is God’s legacy of the past, present, and all future history. All of it dismal, and disappointing to God, but at least it’s accurate and without prejudice. Except for the way Christ is factored into this equation. First as Redeemer for the disgraced, and then heir to God’s kingdom on earth.

For this discussion, I’m going to take the reader on a short journey into the book of Revelation. Recognizing the Apostle John, as the historian who reported the events recorded. Wondering if John had a particular prejudice? Did he give those prejudices a particular slant favored by special interest of his time? Of course he did because he was God’s historian. And what he wrote, occurred by the very directional breath of God. It’s accurate, and not bias because we have this historical record. “All scripture is by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16.

The Apostle John, was one of several men to be given a personal audience with God. That makes John very interesting as a historian. Is what he wrote believable? The answer is yes for some, and no for others. Powerful advocates are on both sides of the fence. As I have suggested before, the curious reader will gather information. Then proceed with conclusions, that will place the reader on one side of the fence or the other. And as this padre has stated previously, there is no attempt to persuade. But only to stimulate thinking, and research, then the truth will be yours. Success comes from open mindedness because luggage of prejudice guarantees closed mindedness.

What will be helpful here is that John records events that will occur in the future. But before, we travel there, lets take a look at John’s audience with God.

John happened to look skyward. Then a door opened in heaven. A voice said, come up here! I will show you things that ‘must’ happen later, Revelation 4:1-2, ceremonial introduction 3-7, verse eight, holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.

Being mindful that the following is what God showed John which he recorded for all posterity. A time will come when a smoke will darken the sun. The air will be polluted. Are these occurrences suggestive of a nuclear blast? Powerful enough to effect the entire world? See Revelation 9:2. Yes! Perhaps upon the United States to the glee of ISSI. ISSI is in its infancy, nevertheless, some American politicians are saying, ‘We are afraid.’ Declaring that ISSI is far more dangerous than Al-Qaeda.

But God will provide for some, those who have the seal of God on their foreheads, verses 3-4.

Others will be tormented wishing for death, but death will not come, Revelation 9:5-6. Very picturesque of the Japanese, who survived two United States nuclear blasts. Nuclear poisoning results in a horrible death. One can only imagine how horrible the suffering, when death won’t come. Who deserves it more than Americans, who have turned against God. Agreeing to obliterate any awareness of God from the American conscience.

Revelation 9:7-10, are suggestive of mighty armies not vulnerable to advanced sophisticated warfare like that of the United States. Declared to be golden and shown to be invincible. Note verse nine, breastplates of iron, sounding like chariots, suggestive of unstoppable maneuverability resulting in the punishing of the people. In our modern world, who, or nation or nations, has been able to even make a serious dent in Islamic aggression anywhere in the world? Oh! Yes, the nations claim containment, but the results say otherwise. Today, Islam owns the world. Muslims can go anywhere and attack whom they will, at will.

This punishment continues with the sting of scorpions. Maybe suggestive of the use of biological welfare. Lasting for a specific period of time, five months, Revelation 9:10.

People spared, are by decree of God Almighty, those seen as the grass of the earth and green like trees, Revelation 9:4.

Jesus Christ is merciful and begs the nations to repent. America is special in the sight of God. It seems God will spare America if her people repent. The window is one of five months, Revelation 9:5. The unanswerable questions, where is the community of nations and in particular, the United States in this historic time line of the coming Fifth Trumpet? Is it literal or figurative? And if neither, is God in the process of adding new chapters to the history books with the unbelievable? A world under Islamic rule, and absent the presence of the United States from the face of the globe.

No matter how you slice the pie; America was designed to be the worlds savior from God’s perspective. But God’s perspective has been ditched, and America and the world is heaping big trouble.

Over this vast, and powerful army is one from the bottomless pit; suggestive of Satan. This person in Hebrew is named, Abaddon, meaning destruction. And in Greek Apolyon, meaning`destroyer, verse 11.

John records, one woe is past with two more to follow, verse 12. Look out!

There you have it, a perspective from an ancient historian, who claims as his source, God. With some speculation and emphasis from this padre.

As far as what took place at Annapolis, it produced no peace in the Middle East. Nor will any Arab/Muslim initiatives before the United Nations. Especially the Arab/Muslim attempt to secure land for peace or statehood for the Palestinians. Nor will Pope Francis’ initiatives. Don’t let anyone fool you, he has designs on Jerusalem as the crown jewel of his papacy.

Because what the historian John records from God, a not a very pleasant future for the Middle East or the rest of the global community. It’s got to be done the God way. A history lesson God has been trying to teach the world for centuries.

So if you are not right with God, now is the time to right your wrongs through Jesus. Easily done through Romans 10:9-10. Because times are only becoming more dismal, but more about that later.

World power United States can not beat

The United States has carved an existence for itself through its military power. Through its military, the nation is able to do whatever it pleased around the globe. Which, enabled the nation to become an economic giant.

To the delight of some, and horror to others all that has changed. Muslims have neutralized Americas military advantage. Muslims have discovered that the countries military is very vulnerable. Unable to win its wars despite its military advantage. Which has spun the United States into a world war it doesn’t know how to fight. Because, the United States has lost its spiritual focus.

The American government has been completely out smarted by an enemy who freely move its troops in and out of the United States.  And when its to their advantage said troops can find employment in a wide assortment of government offices as spies. The government calls them employees. Two or more times a week these Islamic soldiers return to their military fortresses called mosques. Where their collection of spy stuff is shared with their commanders known as Muslim clerics. Those Muslim soldiers while there get a solid briefing of Islamic supremacy and American decadency.

Wherever a continent is found Muslims are engaged in Islamicizing that continent. And to deny such occurrences, is plain stupidity. None of those wars are going well for their foes. Wasn’t the killing Osama bin-Laden by navy seals in Pakistan suppose to end the war against Muslims? Not quite because America had to kill Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. It use to be that Americans were told only a few mis-guided Muslims were the problem. Men like bin-Laden and al-Awlaki, well we don’t hear that rhetoric anymore. Now American politicians are saying that United States is vulnerable than ever to Islamic attacks on our soil.

And worse yet, by American born suicide bombers one of Islams more powerful weapons. The United States is finding it difficult to fight an enemy that it can’t identify. Because Muslim soldiers aren’t dressed in traditional uniforms and troop deployments aren’t done in easily recognizable trucks, trains, ships, or planes. Making things even worse, Muslim soldiers are in residency in countries that they warring against. And such wars despite the death of bin-Laden and al-Awlaki, and others are continuing unabated. When Islams opponents have successful  attacks, it doesn’t hamper Islam in its world war against the United States, Israel and the rest of the world. It barely interrupts their war efforts. Wake up Americans and save yourself because your government can’t protect you.

Islam is so confident that they can conquer the United States without notoriety. That they may well decide that payback for the deaths of bin-Laden and al-Awlaki will occur when an attack will reap huge dividends. Like perhaps, nuking the United States!

For example the U.S. economy is vulnerable because the economy of the United States is depended on trade and credit from its enemies. The country is involved in military conflicts in the areas of the world with the richest oil fields. So, what would happen to the American economy, if just Iran disrupted America’s appetite for oil? Which will happen, if either Israel, or the United States attacks Iran because of its support of nations warring against the United States. Despite what President Trump says about the nations energy self sufficiency. Any disruption in oil to the U.S. would equal huge silent dividends for Muslims. With smiles on the faces of Islamic combatants without concerns about U.S. retaliation. That scenario is irrelevant because Muslims believe that the conquering the United States will happen if they remain oil rich or poor.

How new is the world? It’s very new from the perspective of how the worlds nations deal with conflicts. Countries are accustomed to summoning a nations ambassador in order to lodge grievances. This is done in hopes of avoiding an escalation of a complaint. When that does not work, nations turn to the United Nations for resolution.

Global Islam, one without borders, or a capital city. Absent all the mechanism used by modern governments to conduct its business. This new government is made up of Islamic combatants showing themselves as being very powerful and clearly demonstrating their global influence.

Islam is Americas premiere enemy. This new unbordered government wants to see the United States and Israel destroyed. Destroyed, not just defeated! All the more dangerous to the United States and Israel. In that this military movement uses the camouflage of religion to advance it political, and military power. When it uses its military, it does so to eliminate infidels, and Muslims who don’t adhere to strict Islamic law. This emerging Islamic empire has as its purpose the establishment Islamic states everywhere. No nation state is immune, not even the Vatican city in Rome. Which is the opposite of previous empires, who sought wealth, first than the establishment of its religion into its mechanism of government for the control of the populace.

The old world that the west lives in is having some difficulty dealing with the warfare tactics of of the new world order. Here is an example, for instance when the United States was engaged in a war in Africa. Ethiopia is considered a Christian state. The United States backed the Ethiopian invasion of Somalia. In a successful effort to rid Somalia of the Islamic Union of Somalia Courts, based in the nations capital of Mogadishu.

With Islamist troops in retreat. Al-Qaeda stepped up and ordered a halt to the retreat. It’s then Deputy Director, Ayman al-Zawahri, issued instructions for the troops to ambush, mine, and carry out martyrdom campaigns in order to win. Citing examples of successful mujahidin troops going to heaven because they defeated the world’s strongest power in Afghanistan and Iraq. He said the same must occur in Somalia. You Somalians, as mujaheddin martyrs will also go to heaven. On your journey to heaven, you’ll know that the slaves on Muslim lands shall be defeated. NOTE SLAVES:You should know that Muslims don’t respect non-Muslims. Non-Muslims are considered to be the rightful slave property of Muslims.

Help is on the way, according to the then Deputy Director of Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri, who is now supreme commander of al-Qaeda. Islamist will come from Yemen, Gulf Arab states, Egypt, Sudan, and North Africa. This new world empire does not need the consensus of the states named, or any resolution, to send troops from a body like the United Nations. It is indeed a new world order. That the United States, and the west is not prepared to deal with this foreign paradigm. Let alone defeat it anywhere in the world which includes their presences on the sacred soil of the United States.

Who would ever have thought that rag tag armies could defeat a nation. That most political observers feared might cause the earth to burn up because of its nuclear capabilities. But it happened to Russia in Afghanistan. It can’t be said in reality or factually, that the United States prevailed Iraq or Afghanistan. Or that the same rag tag group could so freely come to America with its destructive power of 9/11, at anytime it wants. To show the strength of this rag tag army, its holding its own on every front where Muslims engage Americans in war. All this havoc has cost Americans billions of dollars, with no end in sight for the continued funding. What does the nation have to show for all of this? Nothing but fear of more attacks on our homeland and more death and suffering at home and abroad. For this kind of war that America is fighting, monetary, military and political solutions will escape resolution.

Because the warfare of this new world order begs for resolution from a religious understanding. What must be understood is that Judaism, Christianity or Islam will determine the outcome of our modern wars. They provide a varied and complex mixture of antagonism with each other. Islam is the bad egg among this trio. Therefore the world needs to understand that Islam presents the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global economic security and world peace. With this being the bottom line. Their rag tag armies are capable of devastating the world economy. And making peace impossible in any city anywhere in the world. So far they have elected not to topple the worlds economy. Instead they have elected to move across the globe determined to bring one nation after another under Muslim control for their prophet Muhammad. That reality is rejected by the politicians of the western world. The only solution then is for the body of believers, who are the church, in Christ. To mobilize their local congregations to fight this Islamic demon.

Help is available seek it! Learn the arts of self preservation by acting violently, nonviolently. A mantra once sung by the committed. Not anymore, so it seems. Perhaps there are those committed through out the country side waiting to show differently.

Why small is gigantic

Most see the hope for peace and prosperity being made possible, if only the right combination of global powers are in place. Some think we have that combination of powers in place. A unique group of powers steadied by the United States. China, Russia, European Union  and the United Nations. The United States in many respects use to be the United Nations. Because as the United States went, so went the world. Not so today making the United States the odd ball within that group. Because the United States has set aside its dependence upon divine providence to help her guide world affairs.

The new reality is that China and Russia are becoming more powerful, and thus, influential on the world scene. Eventually the China,  Russian contributions will mean less peace, and prosperity. As the beast from the East, and the bear from the North begins their ungodly global destabilizing moves. But that depends upon what side of the fence, you live on. For countries aligned with the United States, it’s not good. But for countries like Syria and Iran, it’s a very good thing. The world has this inner awareness that the United States is not what it use to be as the guarantor of peace and prosperity. It’s like a sixth sense that causing anxiety for many and jubilation for others.

For many Christians it’s a matter of jubilation also, but for different reasons. We are fed up at seeing the United States snub it nose at the oracles of God Almighty It’s summed up as follows. The United States was founded as a Christian nation and remained so for a long time. A Christian nation not by law but by practice.

And America was mighty, safe and rich. Here’s an excerpt form God Almighty, “Blessed is the man you choose, and cause to approach you. That he may dwell in your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house, of your holy temple. By awesome deeds in righteousness, you will answer us. O God of our salvation, you who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of the far off seas. Who established the mountains by his strength, being clothed with power. You who still the noise of the seas, the noise of the waves, and the tumult of the peoples. They also who dwell in the farthest parts are afraid of your signs.

You make the outgoings of the morning and evening rejoice. You visited America and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water. You provide their grain, for you have prepared it. You water its ridges abundantly, you settle its furrows. You make it soft with showers, you bless its growth. You crown the year with your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance. They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing,” Psalms 65:4-13. We the devoted, raised our voices and sang, “America the Beautiful.” Now we weep tears of sorrow because what was is becoming no more.

In the past America was invincible because of the following. Jacob the grandfather of America, Joseph his son and Manasseh, grandson and son the spiritual father’s of America. Study Genesis 48 for the birth of Great Britain and the United States.

“Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well. The archers have bitterly grieved him. Shot at him and hated him, but his bow remained in strength. And the arms of his hands were made strong. By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob. From there is the Shepherd (Jesus), the Stone of Israel. By the God of your father, who will help you. And by the Almighty, who will bless you. With blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath. Blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessing of your father have excelled the blessings of my ancestors. Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him who was separated from his brothers,” Genesis 49:22-26. We the devoted understood the Psalms and the Genesis to be American exceptionalism, and so we sang, “My Country Tis of Thee.” Now we weep tears of sorrow for American exceptionalism because America has decided to become unexceptional.

Why gigantic is small

Waiting in the wings and just waiting to escape their world of yesterday. (introduced yesterday) Saddled with this awareness is the League of Arab Nations. Who for to long have had to live with global peace, and prosperity driven by the United States. No matter which way they turned, or how they turned they were aware that the terms for peace and prosperity would have to be acceptable to the United States. If not, then peace and prosperity would be absent in their world.

That is the price the world has had to endured with the United States being the premiere super power. That’s the way it use to be but not today. The celebrants of this jubilation are the worlds Arab/Muslim nations, and Muslims scattered through out the community of nations. They know that the United States can be tested diplomatically, tried on the battle field and defeated in both arenas.

Consequently, the world sits on a powder keg. And when it explodes the world will never regain its equilibrium. This powder keg is an an area of the world where the Arab Muslims lost land to the victorious Israelis during their 1967 war. They want Israel to return their fruits of war. Israel refuses to surrender all the land while making some concessions. So the struggle continues unresolved. But it goes way beyond that scenario, by traveling all the way back to 1948. When the world powers crated the state of Israel. Of course they had no choice because it was by intentional design by divine providence.That comment is well understood by those who are savvy to God’s declarations which include the why’, how’ and when.

The League of Arab Nations senses the shifting sands of time swirling. With the United States being buried in those sands. Thinking now might be the time to take back from Israel what the Arab Muslim world lost through the creation of the state of Israel. Leaving no need to negotiate land for peace as a result their 1967 war. And the prize, they think will be all of Jerusalem as their very own. Joyously thinking that it’ll be absent an Israeli presence.

For the Arab Muslim world, placing hope for peace and prosperity within the right combination of power brokers has not worked. Because the legal parameters, for the Arab Muslim to regain their lost lands of 1967 are already in place. The Geneva Convention’s article 49 states that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its civilian population into territory it occupies. The United Nation’s charter prohibits gains from war. Even if that war was defensive in purpose. Which served as the bases for the UN Security Council’s Resolution 242, November 1967. Emphasizing that Israel must redraw to its 1949-1967 borders.

What a collective bunch of fools were those United States Secretary of States, who over the years have bartered, and begged Israel to comply with what had been decreed. Foolishly presenting their bartering and begging as new peace initiatives.

Israel interprets world law from a biblical perspective. Here is that perspective form the mouth of Isaac. “May God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may be an assembly of peoples; and give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and your descendants with you. That you may inherit the land in which you are a stranger which God gave to Abraham,” Genesis 28:3-4. Those scriptures are the only authority that Israel needs to ignore any world body along with the growing world opinion.

Israel could do that because the right powers were in place. Protecting the holy state of Israel and its capital city Jerusalem from compliance with the law and world opinion. Most have heard it said that God works in mysterious ways. Those protective powers led by the United States are mostly unaware that they have had no choice at any juncture in history. Because all nations like it or not, serve the interest of God Almighty. It’s recorded this way, For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. He puts down one and exalts another,” Psalms 75:6-7. “And God changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings,” Daniel 2:21a,b. They do His bidding like puppets dangled from strings by our mysterious puppeteer.

Here’s a dose of reality. Peace, and tranquility will always be nonexistent from the Arab Muslim perspective because the right powers are not in place. Thus the Arab Muslim world sees the existing powers as the problem. Because they don’t judge  and rule from the Islamic perspective. Therefore, peace and tranquility must be secured by force. That is part of what is playing out upon the world stage today. It’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

And guess whose at the top of their list for extinction, the United States of America. And it’s, going to happen. Evil needs no rest because good went to sleep.

Muslims genetic code predisposes them to a life of violence

After the hit upon Sonny, in the movie the Godfather. The Don recuperating from an assassination attempt upon his own life. Arranges a meeting with the five crime families of New York and New Jersey. And presents this question, how did things ever get so bad?

Many probably hear that same question in regards to world events. So, then how did things in this world ever get so bad? The answer, the tribes of the Ishmaelites, whose lineage occurred through Ishmael, the father of the Muslim people.

Here is a short survey of Islam, as the problem plaguing the world community. Hagar bore Abram a son. Abram called his son’s name whom Hagar bore, Ishmael, Genesis 16:15. Hagar, an Egyptian was not Abram’s wife. She was the maid servant to Sarai, Abram’s wife.

Because Sarai bore Abram no children, she encouraged a sexual relationship between her husband and her maid servant. Which had its expected results, dissatisfaction.

Sarai frightened Hagar, so she fled. But an angel for God was dispatched. Finding her, and said, Hagar, I will multiply your seed exceedingly, and it shall not be numbered because of their exponential birth rate, Genesis 16:10.

Also telling her that she would bear a son, and that she should name him Ishmael. According to the angel all this was occurring because the LORD understood her afflictions as an unwanted surrogate living with Sarai and Abram. Despite that, maybe Hagar could conjure some happy thoughts because motherhood would bring her joy and satisfaction. If so the following must have been shocking to Hagar. As she was told, “He shall be a wild man. His hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. He shall dwell in the presence of his brethren,” Genesis 16:12. Not what a mother wants to hear about her firstborn.

The account of Genesis sixteen is expanded upon in chapter twenty one. Hagar became very distraught, and she abandoned her baby. Hoping that the child would die. Genesis 21:15-16.

But God heard the voice of Ishmael, and dispatched His angel, again. Who told Hagar not to fear because God heard the the baby’s voice. She was instructed to become a mother to Ishmael. With this promise that Ishmael would become a great nation, Genesis 17:20.

God, and Abraham were talking about an heir for him. Remember Abraham was a vast property owner and wanted a male heir. It seems that Abraham wanted Ishmael to be that heir. Because he said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You,” Genesis 17:18. To get a clearer understanding, you should read the preceding verses starting with verse 15.

God said, to Abraham, “I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation,” Genesis 17:20.

A world changer that would forever effect the equilibrium of world politics forever. Despite the globalist attempts to keep the equilibrium balanced. And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before You,” Genesis 17:18. Then God said, “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him, Genesis 17:19. Our lineage is as follows, Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, David to Jesus Christ.

God was with Ishmael, Genesis 21:19, providing him with water after the water was spent. Providing Ishmael with shelter in the wilderness where he became strong and able, Genesis 21:20.

So God was with the lad and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness, and became a great archer. He dwelt in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt, Genesis 21:21.

Ishmael lived a very long time. He was the father of twelve sons, Genesis 25:12-18. The sons of Ishmael became the founders of the Ishmaelite tribes that spread from Africa to modern day Iraq. Many modern day Arab’s trace their lineage to Ishmael.

In summary, we have the birth of a child destined to become a “wild man.” See Genesis 16:12. That wild man from his lineage, has, is and will continue to plot the mayhem and murder which is plaguing  the global community. With the entire civilized world creating systems of varied levels of heightened alerts. Today it’s the expected, rather then the unexpected, wherever a Muslim is seen. And so, is the aftermath of their violence experienced somewhere everyday.

What state or people can be called legitimate, who call for the annihilation of Israel, and the Jews around the world. As is the case for all people, who refuse to bow, and say there is no god but Allah. None, except those who trace their linage to Ishmael, the wild man. As he, propels his legacy of mayhem and murder.

Islam does not have a history of co-existence among themselves or their Islamic neighbors. Muslim ‘craziness’ keeps erupting again and again in Islamic countries where they are the majority. Surely, this can only be characterized as the behavior of crazy men. Why don’t Muslims just go to the ballot box, and elect different candidates? They can’t because Islam doesn’t tolerate freedom of expression or assembly. Islam is a totalitarian system of governance worse than Nazism.

People in the 21 century do not behave in such a manner. Unless they are barbaric and helpless because of their genetic code. Which is the case with Muslims wherever they exist.

True to the angel’s announcement in Genesis 16:10. I will multiply your seed exceedingly. It shall not be numbered because of your exponential birth rate. Muslims have been multiplying their birth rates at a phenomenal pace. With some bragging that if we can’t win the world for Islam on the battle field. Then we’ll do it in the bedroom wherever we live. Which gives the civilized world community, little hope for peace, and stability.

It’s not that Judaism or Christianity are blameless through out history. But this can be said of both religions. We are not about annihilating Muslim in our respective countries. Nor are Muslims where ever they are found in danger of death. By predetermined annihilation because of they refusal to convert to Judaism or Christianity.

When one looks around the globe, and sees heightened security alerts. Knowing they exist because Muslims are determined to attack anyone, who asserts that there is any god but Allah. That must be the religious ideology of crazy men.

Allowing the angle of God to correctly have seen the end result of the birth of Ishmael. A child, who would become an adult. Who would set his hand against everyone, and with every man’s hand against Ishmael and Islam forever.

But why would God,  allow such a cruel occurrence to take place? If God, is really in charge of world events, as is the general belief. Short answer, for every action there is a just and equal reaction. Because Abraham, in his own way attempted to assassinate God. And from the next discussion, you’ll understand how things have gotten so bad.

Solution 4 Muslim mayhem strike them before they strike U

Today we here a lot about the dangers while texting while driving ones car and using cell phones on airplanes. Then the complexity of old history as to what to do about Edward Snowden. Give him immunity from prosecution in exchange for not releasing anymore of the nations secrets. Which would allow him to return to the United States and be reunited with his family. Giving the government the capability to access him, if he breaks his part of any agreement.

But, a far more dangerous, and always a renewing complexity is not being debated. It travels on two legs. Walking into public places and placing explosive packs. Looking for innocent people to blow up. Like they did at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. They call themselves Muslims, who practice a religion they call Islam.

For some reason, when that occurs scores of apologist emerge. Wrapping themselves around the practitioners of Islam. Offering statements like, we are sorry for the behavior of a few extremist. Allowing the most dangerous people in our society to build shelters, called mosques. Which we are discovering, are training grounds for Muslims, who want to carry out such rage in our public places. Europe is more ripe for such rage because Muslims are there in greater numbers than in the United States. America’s time for increased mayhem could not be to far away.

Muslims present such a great threat to safety, stability and everything a civilized society values. That the people of a free and civilized society should lobby their governments to deport these people to Muslim states of their birth or ancestoral homelands which must include the United States. Because the free, and civilized word depends on the United States for its security. President Trump got this right. States that depend upon the United States for their security must pay the United States for their security. Make no mistake, Muslims understand this, therefore, they’ll fight to oppose deportations of Muslims from American soil.

Extreme you betcha, but better safe, than sorry. With safe being supported by our scriptures in Genesis 16:11-12 and Galatians 4:30-31. Moses said Muslims are a wild and ruthless people. Paul said get rid of Muslims because they are a threat to our Judeo Christian heritage.

The world press unveiled the god like behavior occurring in one house of worship or mosque. In Italy newspapers reported that the Italian police arrested several people accusing them of using a mosque in Italy as a training camp for mayhem and violence. One of the men arrested was the imam of the mosque. As such, the imam, is viewed as the temporal successor to the the prophet Muhammad. In the Muslim community he is the final authority in matters of Islamic law. So one can assume, what is advocate in a mosque in Italy would also be lawful in a mosque anywhere in the world.

So what was this holy man up to in his house of worship. Well for starters, according to the Italian police. The imam conducted classes on hand to hand combat. Providing students of mayhem and violence, with knowledge as to how to build explosives and prepare poisons. It did not stop there because they were taught how to send encrypted messages. Worshipers of the Muslim god were also taught the art of ambush with weapon training. Americans should fear this because they were taught how to pilot the destruction of a Boeing 747.

In the end police described this Italian mosque as a real terror school.

Fortunately for Italians, the police hauled of to jail imam Korchi El Mostapha and his aides, Mohamed El Jari and Driss Safika.

According to Italian authorities these arrest occurred as a result of a two year investigation. In order to simulate some aura of saneness imam Mostapha conducted Islamic prayer services. Then he would deliver sermons encouraging his disciples to join his holy war. Which according to the police, included children.

Remember what Jesus said, watch out for those in sheep’s clothing but are inwardly raging wolves. Seems like Jesus might have been referring to the world’s Muslim community.

Starting with Bush and continued by Obama, both presidents asserted that the United States is not at war with Muslims and never will be. Both men have showed themselves be perfect ignoramuses for Islamic intentions. Which are clearly reiterated again again it their manual of war, the Qur’an. And then clearly demonstrated through out the world, including the United States repeatedly. Islam is the premiere force of darkness in this century. A religion that has rendered the greatest fighting force known to humanity impotent. Leaving world governments staggering for band aide solutions. Act before Islam, churns another piece of the free world to saw dust and it just could be the United States.

Americans need to learn what a free, and civilized society can accomplish. When their government puts the people at risk. Avail yourself of the vast material available biblically and secularly. Then create opportunities to teach such materials with strategies.

How America was lost

Which is worse, a politician with feet planted in concrete around recognizable ideologies, like former President Bush? Or a politician like President Obama? Who wishes, that he had octopus like arms. So that he could wrap himself securely around as many contrasting and conflicting ideologies as possible. Resulting with his being a troublesome presidential tenure for him and his administration. Because no matter how skilled the politician might be trying to harmonize contrasting, and conflicting ideologies never works.

Concerning President Bush, and his presidential tenure of eight years, this most know. He served as a master thief of two presidential elections. As well as being, the master of deception in all areas of his government. Most likely, to go down in history as one of the nations worse presidents. Perhaps at the top of the list, his Iraqi fiasco! Haunting the region and engulfing the entire planet to this day.

What does this mean to God? Not much, if you look at the following scriptures? It amounts to nothing more than a drop of water in a bucket. Or nothing more than a little dust because all nations before him are as nothing, and recognized by God as vanity. Who brings the princes to nothing making these judges of the earth as vanity. See Isaiah 40:15,17,23.

Yet the vast numbers of people are far more interested in expending endless energy in the ways of the nation. Studying every word that proceeds from a politicians mouth. Sometimes cheering, and at other times condemning what they read, see or hear. Often with enough intensity to raise their blood pressures to dangerous levels. Their supportive, and angry tweets can be seen on twitter, where they tweet for hours daily. Advocating this nothing and that nothing.

Proportionally, one wonders if a survey were taken, what would be the results? If people indicated by percentages how much time they spend wrapped up in the political arena. Attempting to make sense out of these troubling times. As opposed to those, who spent their time wrapped in God’s word. Attempting to make sense out of these troubling times. My take, God’s word, would come up short buy a long shot. Even by those who think of themselves as devout Christians. Either by the new birth experience or by church affiliation.

The way of a nation is determined by the peoples commitment to spiritual depth. The Body of Christ has allowed the secular political world to dominate and silence the voice of God in national and international affairs. It is easy for that to occur because the church is so splintered with conflicting interpretations of what God is saying through the scriptures. Largely because people have allowed others like the clergy to interpret the scriptures for them. Instead of studying the scriptures for themselves. In order to determine what God had said yesterday, for today and tomorrow. Disgracing the great Lutheran clergyman, Martin Luther’s sacrifices under Catholicism. Martin Luther, not only risked being excommunicated from his church to spend eternity in hell. A false doctrine.  But he also risked, being burned to death at the stake. So that ordinary, every day people, could read their scriptures for self determination of God’s personal requirements for salvation and His world plan. Making Martin Luther one of histories great men. What made Martin Luther great is that he neither showed, nor advocated contrasting or conflicting ideologies. Neither should Christendom today!

Christendoms failure to come together erasing contrasting and conflicting ideologies is largely responsible for the elimination Christendoms influence through out the United States. Which has produced a government now steeped in secularism, who are eager to share their power with the nations corporate conglomerates. Because they have the big bucks to spend on candidates. So these legislators then legislate laws unfavorable to the people but favorable to corporate America. Because that’s their meal ticket to being reelected. So the powers to be are corporate thugs and political cronies working together to kill America. Whose presences on earth was foreordained by God to be the salt of the earth. And a beacon of light shinning on a hilltop, showing that America through Christ is the answer to world darkness. What those combined powers have forgotten is that prosperity is a by product of a nations faithfulness to what God foreordained.

The vast majority of Americans are experiencing economic peril. Because most Americans have set aside their God given destiny at home and around the world. Though most would reject such a proposition. Largely, because they don’t know what the Bible teaches, when a people, and a nation forsakes what God has ordained. Indeed the American people will learn, as will its government, as the consequences are distributed across the land. Just watch the unveiling of increasing national and global hardships, as they manifest themselves. Then ask, could it be because of the aforementioned?

But for now, a few words from Jesus. “Think not that I am come to send peace to the earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword,” Matthew 10:34. Because, “Many will entreat the favor of the prince, and every man is a friend to him that gives gifts,” Proverbs 19:6. Resulting in, “There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways death,” Proverbs 14:12. Causing God to react, “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts,” Proverbs 21:2.

Forcing God to have no respect for the princes of the nations as noted from Isaiah. And promising to be the God, who changes the times and seasons. He removes one politician and installs another. Giving wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who know understanding, Daniel 2:21.

President Obama with his octopus like arms experienced even greater difficulties during his second term. Because he wanted to be all things to all people at home, and abroad. Picturesque of the six armed octopus. Also picturesque of even greater chaos for democrats and the main reason Hillary lost her presidential bid to Donald Trump.

From the Scriptures, a president can not be all things to all people! See Matthew 6:21,24. President’s who govern as such are likely to find their feet planted in cement by the will of divine providence. Who will eventually cement their feet in the death grip of failure. Because they refused to do the nations work God’s way. Giving them little reach with those six arms for political maneuverability.

Sending a clear signal to the Trump presidency not to govern the in ways of his predecessor. If Trump does, than his presidency maybe more disastrous than any other presidents to date. Easy to envision with such an unstable economy. Funding the nations budget with borrowed money especially from China. Who poses a real threat to the United States as global economic and military power. With this scriptural bases, “The rich rule the poor. And the borrower is servant to the lender,” Proverbs 22:7.

Then compounded with Christianities, and Judaisms concerns are our Islamic enemies here in the United States. Who are being allowed to built military fortresses that they call mosques. From which they emerge to attack us. The seasons and the times could really intensify. Leaving the government little choice but to surrender to the compromises that Muslims will have the power to demand. Want to see what Muslims are up to? It’s suggested that you go to snagfilms.com and search for, “What the West needs to know.” It’s a long video, about 1 1/2 hrs. long. Watch carefully, and take notes, and you’ll leave wanting to end the ignorance. Islam is our greatest internal threat to end what it means to be American. That video will strongly reinforce that notion, guaranteed. Recall the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and several other Americans? Well the story still rages with some suggesting the attack occurred because of a film that belittled and ridiculed Islam.

Our times are troubling, and we can expect them to get worse in terms of collective failed economics, natural disasters, famines, diseases and war. Because God is not happy with the journey America is taking. If you know your scriptures, than you know that’s how God often shows His displeasure’s. And the opposite occurs, when He is pleased. Those of us secure in Jesus Christ, must like our Lord understand the sword of Matthew 10:34. God has many weapons to be used to defend His beloved America. One of those weapons is becoming a people given God’s wisdom. Because we can have the understanding of Daniel 2:21(b). Taking advantage of the sacrifices of Martin Luther, who led the way for being wise through the understanding of the scriptures. Whenever a great reformation occurs, think not that it is the man. But know that when it occurs  God is pleased with the man. It’s found in a very simple truth. Said by a man, who experienced what he advocated. So he wrote, what shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us, Romans 8:31.

America has only one solution which is a spiritual reformation. Don’t just be a part of it, but instead, be it’s influence in the community where you live.

And if stirred by that uncanny hand of Divine Providence use the spiritual warfare of the sword. Known as the Jesus tactics.

The Land that Flowers with Milk and Honey

“I’m not smart, but I like to observe. Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why?” Bernard M. Baruch

How smart is someone who likes to observe. From my perspective real smart because we are able to piece together for ourselves the reasons for things being as they are. We may have many naysayers, but at least we have a fact based opinions that we can act upon. That is always the intent of these discussions. Form an opinion from what you observe from these numerous writings. And act upon them, hopefully for the cause of Christ.

If you do not get anything get this. Muslims poses the most imminent threat to Israel and the United States. Both nations are targets for annihilation by various Islamic regimes. They know that only our two nations stand in their way as the dominate power for world supremacy. They will not hesitate to use weapons of mass destruction to destroy any nation that stands in their way of bringing nations under Islamic governance. Making Muslims wherever they are found more dangerous than Russia, China or North Korea. Because, of the Islamic end of the world theology.

By choice the United States has been blinded by the prince of the power of the air, Ephesians 2:2. A power like the wind. Something not observable but which can only be felt than experienced.

Making America great again to its fullest extent can only be accomplished by understanding the conflicting theology of Islam and Christianity. Then acting upon the Christ way to defeat the Muhammad way.

Islamic horrors will occur through out the United States. There is absolutely no remedy, apart from what is to follow. It comes from our scriptures which ask? “Why do the nations rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves up, and the rulers take counsel against the LORD, and against his anointed saying, let us break their bands asunder and cast their cords from us,” Psalms 2:1-3.

From observations people what a kingdom, a kingdom that is prosperous, but without God in it. America is moving further and further from its dependence upon God. With the preceding scriptures from the Psalms describing what is occurring to destroy what is necessary for God’s protection and national prosperity. It’s playing itself out through various forums but it is happening, America.

This is the only pathway to prevent our destruction. Because God promised unprecedented blessings upon a people depended upon the God of Israel. As a nation, we are connected to Israel as family. In order to understand this, it’s imperative to know your Bible history.

It’s done through Abraham, the father of many nations, Genesis 12:4. Giving birth to a descended named Joseph, who had two sons. One by the name of Manasseh, where prophecy foretold of an offspring, who would become a great people. Through the providence of time his descendants brought into existence the United States, Genesis 48:19-20. His younger brother Ephraim the father of many nations occurred through Great Britain. Scriptural support Great Britain is found in Genesis 48:16b and Romans 4:17-18

This is the only path for national prosperity. Turn back all assaults that would break our dependence upon God. Then not allowing the destruction of our Israeli and American commonality. Which the United Nations is determined to accomplish, as prophesied in Psalms 2:2. Thus fulfilling the prophecy of Psalms 2:3. And when successful, it’ll guarantee the worse global recession ever.

Fortunately such a recession has well established boundaries. It’s the in between period that will be troublesome. Eventually, this will occur. “He who sits in heaven shall laugh. The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure,” Psalms 2:4-5.

To put some distance between, and maybe avoid the inevitable, this is what must occur. A spiritual uprising by returning the nation back to this understanding, by observation and practice. “Now these are the commandments, the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land to which you go to possess. Nationhood for Israel and the United States. That you might fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments through out the O.T. and the N.T. That I have commanded you, and your son, and son’s son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged. The genealogy of centuries of ancestries from ancient times to modern day Israel and the United States. Creating an inseparable bond between our respective people. Resulting with these conditional demands. Hear therefore, O! Israel, and observe to do it, that it  maybe well with you, and that you may increase mightily, as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you in the land that flowers with milk and and honey. Hear, O! Israel. And Israeli descendants, who have settled in America. The LORD our God is one LORD. Uniting the two nations as one,” Deuteronomy 6:1-4. Emphasis throughout by this writer.

That is the way back to the land that flowers with milk and honey. Leaving behind the misery The United Nations would have us wallow through. Such a simple statement to gloss over, but stop, and imagine its abundant fruition. Like Americas past day’s of flowering economy of milk and honey. But that will take considerable effort to accomplish because it’s about knowing your biblical history. It’s the only way to have an an understanding of world dynamics.

Obama and scriptural destiny

Some say that President Obama is a Muslim. The man he once engaged in war, the deceased Col. Gaddafi, said he’s a Muslim. Obama says he’s a Christian. The truth be known, one has reason to believe he’s neither. But like most American politicians, he identifies with ideologies that he thinks will advance his political legacy. As will, President elect Donald Trump.

Centuries ago this was recorded. The burden of the Word of the LORD against Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, and lays the foundation of earth, and forms the spirit (breath) of man within him, Zechariah 12:1.  So those men, who breathes the breath of God, as we all do. Might very well have been tapped by God to put in place one  brick after another that will move this world, as we know it, to its end.

There are many scriptural passages that might arose ones curiosity which might signal the end of this age, as we know it. After that, times will be very different, but that’s a discussion for another time. But for now a prophetic recording in Zechariah 12:2. “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness (or trembling) to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.”

For some the curiosity centers around two interesting scriptural phrases. First, “cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, who lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.” Most have noticed that the world is obsessed with ever growing hostilities against Israel. With the ‘cup of drunkenness’ being used by the prophet for their intense obsession with Israel. So, one might ask, what could stir up such emotions? Answer. On the world scene, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Resulting in, “All the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Israel,” which represents  the second phrase of curiosity. Contained in one single verse, but impacting millions of people.

The question then how might this occur? So as not to be redundant, read yesterday’s discussion, “Supernatural supremacy where it is found.” Because that discussion suggest one very plausible scenario for the bringing about Zachariah 12:2.

It should be understood that this prophecy is not a matter of if it’ll occur. It will occur, with it just being a matter of when, and with severe consequences.

Some of the consequences are spelled out for us in Zachariah 12:3. “And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces, though all the nations of the earth are against it.” With supernatural supremacy where it is found moving the world community a big step closer to that day.

Supernatural supremacy where it is found

It is the solider, not the reporter who gave us freedom of the press.

It is it the solider, not the poet who gave us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier not the campus or community organizer who gave us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, who salutes the flag who serves beneath the flag.
And whose coffin is draped by the flag who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Rev. Dennis Edward O’Brian, USMC

We memorialize with deep respect and dignity the fallen, who have given the nation our liberties. War has many causalities with one of them being God. Because few take time to understand the origins of war, thus blaming God for human sufferings.

War is about deception which had its beginning in heaven, according to John. Who wrote, “And war broke out in heaven, and Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven,” Revelation 12:7-8. Resulting in Lucifer, and his angels getting a boot in their rear ends. Tumbling earth bound, and launching a deceptive warring attack upon humanity.

John continued by adding, “So the great dragon was cast out, the serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” Revelation 12:9. Every war has had its threads of deception tangled with Lucifer.

Ezekiel wrote saying, “All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; you have become a horror, and shall be no more forever,” Ezekiel 28:19. And terrorism with its many faces of manifestation will continue until the end of the age, a time only known to God, according to Mark 13:32. By that time, the great deceiver will have meant his match many times. And finally the prophecy, Genesis 3:15, will have its conclusion.

Therefore, it can be said, war amounts to demonic assaults. Hard for some to believe but nevertheless true. Recent conflicts are beginning to expose themselves for what they are-the struggle for supernatural supremacy.

No better example exists than the Islamic assault upon the non-Muslim world. They have this image of a theocracy to be imposed upon the non-Islamic community. With one exception, and that’s the state of Israel whom they want to see eradicated as a people.

The Jews have no ambitions to impose Judaism upon any non-Jewish nation. What they want is a Jewish state for Jews, and only within the borders of Israel which really should encompass all of Palestine.

Then we have the Christian world, who war to see nation states fall under the Christendom banner. But they are more subtle about it, by declaring their intentions as those of offering democracy to the people. But we know that real democracy carries with it the influences of a Judeo-Christian philosophy. But that philosophy though offering the best of all worlds is a philosophy of the past. For two reasons, the Christ of Christendom never was the focal emphasis. Rather it was about empire building and raping of countries of their natural resources. Which has given Christendom, a despised recognition among those who have been victimized.

And so we have Islam stepping up to answer Christendom, resulting in our currant global warfare. Warring against the Jews and Christians as infidels. And it’s all about supernatural supremacy, but no one is saying so.

Engage yourself and take a journey of understanding of that struggle for supernatural supremacy. Know your world. Do not let the world know you. Because if you do, that world will deceive you. All of which is anchored in His holy word. Learn it, and maybe God will take you beyond the words of the Reverend Dennis Edward O’Brian.

This is a certain encounter that will someday be experienced before the throne of God. It’ll be a glorious day. Echoed by John, “Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven. Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ has come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death,” Revelation 12:10-11. There we have our charge to war against the enemies of our God and His Christ. Knowing the end from the beginning just like our Redeemer

A mixed package the good-unfortunate and bad

If parishioners, or non church people want to know the truth, ignore the teachings of most churches. Truth can be determined from a careful examination of the scriptures. Old and New Testaments. There you will discover the Christ plan and mission. Meaning what Christ expects from each of us. Upon conclusion, a vastly different conclusion will be drawn. Differing greatly from what the most modern churches teach.

In Luke we find, Jesus, our illustrative teacher, story telling again. Jesus was being told that the population non Jewish Galileans under Pilate were screwing up the Jewish animal sacrifices with blood mixture.

Wow asked Jesus? “Do you think of those Galileans, as being people representing the most egregious behavior ever known to humanity?”

Without further elaboration Jesus said, “Hey!” ‘if you do not repent. all of you will likewise parish.'”

Then Jesus moves on asking for their recollection. At Siloam a tower fell on eighteen people, killing all of them. Again Jesus draws a parallel asking, “Were they the most egregious sinners in all of Jerusalem?”

As above, Jesus said, “Except you repent, you will likewise parish,” Luke 13:1-5.

With His illustrative manner, Jesus taught two valuable lessons. Looking first at the second incident involving the death of eighteen innocent people.

This is a matter of great confusion for many people. Especially, when people lose a child. Pick your corner of the world there incident after incident you’ll find innocent people dieing for no apparent logical reason.

Some are prone to wonder why God would permit such occurrences. Not being able to get satisfactory answers concerning God’s non intervention or silence. They turn against God and some even curse God.

Huge mistake! Because Jesus said, “You too will parish, if you do not repent.” People should be curious about the Christ teaching about repentance, but most are not. Again, such a shame because it is the most central teaching of Jesus Christ.

As far as the first incident, where the Jewish animal sacrifices were tampered with. Think in terms of some of histories more notable tyrants. Even though very bad, they are perceived by Christ as being no worse than any other person; even people of noble character. The same response occurred from Jesus, as He had with the blood mixtures. There is no sin greater than another transgression. We compartmentalize sin, God does not. The Christ message is the same for all and simple, “repent or parish,” Luke 13:3,5.

We as mortals trapped in a confusing world seeking understanding, as to why things unfold, as they do. We often see things in terms of the immediate. For the fortunate, maybe a life close to a century. Then many think it is all over final closure. It is not, but that is for a later discussion.

God sees things from an eternal perspective. Calling for obedience first, and then adoration. Humanity most often turns its back on God; refusing to obey let alone adore. This has resulted in severe punishment for humanity all through history, and it is unfolding right before our very presences today.

God in another desperate attempt to get humanities attention. Did something only God could accomplish. He introduced Himself into this physical world as the only begotten son of God. We know this unexplainable miracle as Jesus the son of Mary and Joseph. How spectacular a miracle was this? In Revelation 19:13, the answer is as follows, “He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name was called The Word of God.”

This eventually resulted in the murder of Jesus. Launching yet another approach, to get humanity to ‘obey and adore.’ During this time line, or covenant with humanity. God has given humanity what it most desires. Their freedom, and independence, allowing humanity to take responsibility for the managing this planet.

During which time God has chosen to remain aloof and silent. Meaning God will not intervene and save the innocent from tragedy. Or interfere with evil as it reeks evil upon humanity. That is the lesson from Luke 13:1-5. God sees no distinction between the good and the bad. This time span is but a rain drop to be quickly evaporated. Furthermore, tragedy and tyrants are given over to the management of we mortals. We bare all consequences for the good, unfortunate, and bad occurrences.

Jesus taught this prayer model in Matthew six. When you pray, recognize God who is in heaven. Sacred and holy is His very name. Give God His due respect by worshiping and adoring Him. That is the lesson of verse nine.

Pray for His kingdom to come and for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. So few words steeped with directives for our execution. If we as Christians know any thing, it is that humanity will continue to curse God by their attitude and behavior. That is why we are to work and prepare for His return. Only Jesus can save humanity from extinction. That is the lesson of verse ten.

We are to ask Jesus, for our “daily Bread,” Matthew 6:11. All of these verses have had some commentary in recent discussions. The key here is found in verse eight, “… for your Father knows what things we are in need of before we ask him,” Matthew chapter six. In verse 12 we are told to ask for forgiveness of our debts. It is a debt that we mortals can not repay apart from the mercy of God the Father. From repentance to life in Christ the message in a few words is this. We must forgive our debtors. How can Christians having experienced God’s forgiveness not forgive those indebted to us by their transgressions. A mark of spiritual awakening, and depth can be measured by our ability to forgive others. Christians who hold grudges have little utility in the service of Christ. To much foreign baggage holding them back.

Repentance is very important in the Christ plan. In Luke thirteen, Jesus calls for repentance twice. While God has left the planet to humanities management, the central features remain the same, ‘repent and adore.’ Adoration notion found in Matthew 6:9 “Hallowed be Your name.”

The Christ plan requires first of all repentance. Then the taking up the Christ cause of challenging and changing your world.. With Christians setting aside their hopes and aspirations for the cause of Christ. John picked up on this when he wrote. Those who do that; receive Jesus. Jesus then gives them the power to become the children of God, John 1:12. John likens this to a new birth, verse 13.

Failure to do this is the most egregious sin of humanity. Because it leads humanity to *parish,* John 3:3 and 5, outside of the cause of Christ and any future with Christ.

The cause of Christ is as follows.”If any person will come after me, let them deny them self, and take up the cross, and follow me,” verse 24, Matthew sixteen. “For whoever desires to save their life shall lose it, but whoever loses their life for my sake will find it,” verse twenty five. “For what is it for a person, if they gain the whole world and loses their own souls? Or what shall a person give in exchange for his soul?” verse twenty six.

Imperatives issued by our illustrative artist, Jesus. They are not debatable or negotiable; they are absolute imperatives, and the only path available to eternal life. The cause of the “cross,” exemplified by Christ Himself.

The second Christ imperative is a willingness to lose ones life in order to gain eternal life.

And then shunning what this world has to offer, in exchange for the Christ plan and mission. Which leads to the possession of ones soul or eternal life.

Manual of mercy and terror

If God had a USA street address, and could be found at work in his office. Surrounded by people called disciples and apostles working together on missions of mercy and destruction. Mercy because God has promised extraordinary benefits for those aligned with him and his many causes. And destruction upon those, who hold opposing views.

Would the feds attempt to indict and prosecute God as a terrorist? After all it would be easy for the feds to confiscate a very incriminating piece of evidence. His mercy, and terror manual, a document referred to as the Bible. After all God is up front and very specific about his intentions. Not only that he as a long history of carrying out his intentions.

Without question God has, and continues to promise humanity with some rather grotesque sufferings. Take for instance the devil like creatures of Revelation 9:3. Who were instructed to torment people for five months with the misery of a scorpion sting, verse five.

How severe will that misery be? It will be so very intense that people will seek death, but death will flee from them. No matter what avenues people employ to die, death will evade them verse six.

But some, will escaped the torture. They are the ones with seal of God on their foreheads, verse four. No doubt they were a part of his package of mercy. But not by favoritism, but rather by individual choice.

There is a legal doctrine of “mens rea” which is the doctrine of ones mental state. An act can’t be a crime, unless it’s forbidden by law. Then the prosecutor must prove several elements. One of them being intentionally. In other words the defendant must be aware of his or her behavior. Mens rea requires premeditation for certain crimes. Especially, those associated with mass torture.

Clearly, God knew what he was doing. because with purposeful premeditation, he excused a class of people from that torment, Revelation 9:4. In Revelation 7:2, where God’s executioners were ordered to do no harm. Until his servants had the seal of God on their forehead. Then those without the seal were not to be killed, just tormented, Revelation 9:5.

Case closed! God clearly is aware of his intentions. In that this is a future occurrence it would be prudent for the feds to create a law forbidding such crimes. Then proceed to indict and prosecute God, as soon as he emerges from his USA headquarters. After all, they would have as evidence what God declares to be his inerrant word.

As all recognize this is partly a bit of spiritual satire. Only because God’s physical presences is unavailable. However the prophecy of Revelation nine is not a bit of spiritual satire. It will occur, its just the timing that is obscure.

We know that from the execution of Jesus, that if the feds could indict God, they would! But God has his own complaints against the community of nations, including the United States. Speaking as the voice of Jesus, God said, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left desolate,” Matthew 23:37-38. Meaning that the cities within the nations of the world community is not a fit place for human habitation. It will become more so as time progresses because they represent places of godlessness. It’s precisely for that reason that the world community will experience the wrath of God. One such episode is recorded in those early verses of Revelation nine.

Others follow with Revelation 9:12, referring to them as “woes.” Why would a just God inflict such wretchedness upon humanity? The short answer is as follows, with the emphasis on repentance, “… yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk. Neither repent they of their murders, nor of their sorcery, nor their fornication, nor of their thefts,” Revelation 9:20-21.

The Bible is what it should be, both a manual of mercy and terror. In both cases it’s so that the worlds people may know, said the LORD, that I am the LORD. Through mercy, “I am the LORD, and there is no other. There is no God besides me. I will gird you, though you have not known me. That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting. There is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other,” Isaiah 45:5-6. And from the perspective of terror, “I form the light and create darkness. I make peace and create calamity. I, the LORD, do all these things,” Isaiah 45:7. And the sternest of warnings, “Woe to him, who strives with His Maker,” Isaiah 45:9a. With this consequence, “Then they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have made the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed,” Ezekiel 33:29.

Fuck ups abound everywhere

“A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has been destroyed from within,” William Durant, author with his wife, Ariel. The Story of Civilization, in eleven volumes.

Jacob comforting his son, Joseph. “… he (Jacob’s grandson) also shall become a people, and he also shall be great …,” Genesis 48:19.

O! What a history that has evolved from the birth rights given to Manasseh the oldest of Jacob’s two grandsons. So here is a glorious, and magnificent but short sketch of history, all from a dream. But not just any history, not even from great thinkers like Will and Ariel Durant. But rather prophetic history provided by God Almighty, and chronicled by one his prophets. Who said, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,” saith the Lord, “Who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty,” Revelation 1:8. Just thinking about his statement, especially, ‘and who is yet to come.’ And then scrolling those words to be read, brought fear of the Almighty. Because his judgments are painful, as they are incremental. And, I fear national judgment upon individual Christians. Because American Christendom, was divinely intended to be the salt that added divine flavor. As American Christendom became a city to lighten the way for an aging world that ignored God. It was God showing mercy one more time to a world that ignored him. Fear, yes indeed! Because his mercy from history is not ever lasting. What God directs his prophets to chronicle can’t contain blunders or errors. Giving it reliability that grants dependability for history future as it unfolds.

American Christendom occurred and is occurring today because the Jews got on the bad side of their God. How did they stumble into his ending mercy? By refusing to acknowledge his edicts which were designed for their own good, Deuteronomy 28:15-20. Most scream, I can’t believe this God stuff without proof. Well those 6 verses are your proof. Followed by divine decree, God dispersed them to the four corners of the earth, Deuteronomy 28: 63-64. And the the prophetic promise of Ezekiel 37:21, And say unto them, “Thus saith the LORD God. BEHOLD! I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, to which they are gone, and well gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land. A prophecy fulfilled on, 14 May 1948, when Israel was once again returned to their land. But helped by their cousin, Ephraim, Great Britain, that he would become a ‘multitude of nations,’ Genesis 48:19-20. With Great Britain emerging on the world scene first with her ‘Commonwealth of Nations and later followed by the United States. But in that interim period, Israeli holy lands were occupied by Arab/Muslims. And thus a wild people, who are unable to get along with each, and who are at war with everyone, and with everyone being at war with them. Thus fulfilling another prophecy that will have no successful resolution, Genesis 16:12.

Then there is American Christendom, as we with Judaism are one through Abraham, Genesis 17:4. In the truest sense of the expression, we are family, cousins by genealogy. Divinely intended to be nations that showed the way for prosperity and salvation. Short of what Eden promised but better than what we have today. Stop your screaming for proof of that God stuff because you just got taste of that proof.

Indeed fuck ups abound everywhere, but so does God’s mercy. Israel fell from within proving William and Ariel as insightful thinkers. As did Ephraim’s Great Britain, my next discussion. Then concluding with Manasseh’s Christendom, America, still a formidable power but collapsing. Can she be spared the Israeli and British fate? Stay connected, and we’ll see.

When hell breaks loose

Roaring from the deep craters of the heavens comes the voice of God. Asking? “And Satan answered the LORD and said, Skin for Skin, yes all that a human has will he give for his life,” Job 2:4.

However, through the centuries many like Steven have proven Satan wrong. Read Steven’s history for yourself by going to, The Acts of the Apostles or The Acts. Its author Paul chronicled the courageous acts of individuals, who made up this new phenomenon called church. Steven’s testimony to Christendom is recorded in, The Acts of the Church, detailing his courage of faith and strength, as the first martyr of Christendom. Found in Acts 6:9-15 and 7:1. Concluding with his extra ordinary testimony and execution, Acts 7:48-60. And the way things are unfolding with intolerance of Christendom globally and compounded by the Obama administration. The life experiences of Steven may become rather common place. Which should not be a shock to Christendom because Jesus said it would occur, recorded in Matthew 24:9. The time is sure to come, when Steven becomes the example of how to behave under such circumstances.

It will happen because this phenomenon is not only echoing from those craters from centuries past but with greater intensity of acceptance today. So vibrating off those walls of the universe are these words from God. “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20.

Always resulting with these consequences, “Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom will ascend like dust. Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of host, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel,” Isaiah 5:24. Which will be the eventual experience of those who would persecute the valiant and faithful of Christendom.

While governments are the predators on the hunt to silence Christendoms gospel message, such predatory behavior is fueled by the acceptance of the people. Therefore, the combination of ruling authorities and the governed will share in God’s eventual wrath and destructive retributions. So the call is for people to deny the government its backward gallop from Christendom in America. It’s becoming a serious situation with the personage of the nations current president. President Obama, who is the latest in a line of presidents, who seem determined to prove that America can function independent of Christendoms Judeo-Christian heritage. And in so doing is calling good evil and evil good, and who put bitter for sweet and sweet bitter. And its done skin for skin because all that is politically offense to one and all will be sacrificed for anticipated gain. Meaning for people within the confines of America, and stretching to encompass those abroad, who are friends  and enemies.

Much can be said by saying nothing because observation of statehood attitudes says it all. America once projected silently and acknowledge this speech from the LORD. Who created the heavens, who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it it to be inhabited. Saying, “I am the LORD, and there is no other,” Isaiah 45:18.

The Obama administration speaks with a voice that is foreign to what God wants to hear. When the administration speaks, their voice defies the law of the LORD of host and shames the Holy One of Israel from whom America gained its birth. Obama, and his administration is one that finds good in evil for what scriptures condemn. For now, two examples, first acceptance of homosexuality which God condemns, note the following holy scriptures, Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:24-27.

Then switching darkness for light by making the bitterness of Islam sweet by their constant rhetoric that Islam is a peaceful religion. While the Obama administration conversely sees the light of Christendom as darkness, its sweetness as bitter. Because Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them,” Matthew 7:20.

From the Obama perspective how is this Islamic good with its light and sweet playing out in America. To avoid a long list of astrocities on American soil. Here are a few, 9/11, the Fort Hood massacre, two military recruiters shot in Arkansas killing Pvt. William Long. And the inconvenience of hightened national security because of the Islamic threat, costing Americans millions annually. When Obama speaks the best he can do is express how deeply he is saddened by such senseless acts of violence and that the exorbitant cost to make America safe is necessary because of a few misguided Muslims.

And most non-Muslims seem to agree. Suggesting a total unawareness of what Christendoms scriptures teach about Islam. In Genesis 16:11-12 we discover that Islam is a destructive force. It’s a scriptural argument centering around Ishmael, the father of Islam. Eventually emerging on the world scene as the father of mayhem. Given an appropriate description in verse 12 as being wild. Who will be against everyone, even those who call themselves Muslims. With scriptures declaring that Islamic mayhem would be felt everywhere. Wherever a Muslim can be seen, there is danger caged, waiting to be exploded in violence. It’s their nature to be destructive. Always finding ways to fulfill their destiny.

The next time Obama insists that the United States is not at war with Islam and will never be at war with the Muslim world. It’s an ineptness of what Christendom knows about Islam, because there are centuries of history showing the contrary. It’s wrapped up in a few words, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways. And, My thoughts than your thoughts,” Isaiah 55:8-10.

So what are some of His thoughts and ways that escape most. That puts His thoughts and ways higher than the earth? What mortal can offer an adequate response? None, but here’s an educated guess. What shapes our world today came about because Abraham couldn’t take God at His word that He would provide a male heir. So Abraham fornicated with a woman and brought an illegitimate son into the world. And we are paying the consequences, as others have through the centuries for that transgression. Kind of amazing that behaviors that transgress God’s promises can have such long term consequences. This illegitimate son that Abraham fathered decided that he should become God’s promised heir. And Ishmael the creator of Islam has passed that conquest on through his descendants. And here we are fending of that Islamic challenge today. With the Apostle Paul instructing Christendom with these instructions. Rid yourself of those people because they are not the people of promise. Which is the sole distinction reserved from those born of the Spirit, Galatians 4:30-31. From Abraham, to Isaac, to David and to Jesus Christ. Then from Jesus to you, and me, and everyone redeemed by Jesus. An experience not available to our ancient forefathers. They received the promise under the law. And we, by grace made known to us through Paul. God’s spokes person to the Gentile world.

And there you have the reason why Satan said to God, skin for skin, yes all that a human has will he give to save his life. And why many like Steven have sacrificed their lives  denying the children of the flesh what they want most. And why Jesus said, to Christendom, like Steven, so might be your fate. And what will most of Christendom do to save their skin? Go the way of the flesh or the Spirit?

Islamic Horror

A fox entered an actors house and rummaged through all his properties. Among other things, he found a mask representing a hobgoblin’s head. The work of a talented artist. He took it up in his paws and said, “What a fine head! A pity it has no brains in it!”

This fable reminds us that some men of impressive physical appearance are deficient in intellect. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“The Fox and the Mask”)

And so it is with the modern churchmen. Far more interested in impressive looking hobgoblin’s. Mostly absent any intellectual or spiritual discernment’s about prevailing trends designed to eradicate Christendom.

Centuries ago the Apostle Paul took some time to alert the church about a formidable evil. With the purposeful design to eradicate not only the church, but the very notion of any validity for a belief in Jesus Christ. And who, could that formidable enemy be? None other than the Muslim community, no matter where one exist.

Paul altered Christendom to this evil when he said, “But as he (Ishmael father of Islam) that was born of the flesh persecuted him (Isaac) that was born of the Spirit, EVEN SO IT IS NOW,” Galatians 4:29.

This Ishmael (Islam) verses Isaac (Judaism/Christendom conflict is centuries old and has claimed millions of lives. And this count continues to mount and make no mistake the Islamic sword seeks desperately to slay a Jew wherever a Jew is found. Along with those of us from the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David to Christ. That makes those of us born of Christ, the children of the Spirit. Leaving the lineage of Ishmael, the Arab/Muslim world as the children of the flesh. The lineage of Islam is a disgraced people because Ishmael became the illegitimate son of Abraham. And have fought, ever since to become the lineage of the Spirit.

A world absent from the presence of Judaism and Christendom makes ascendancy, as the people of promise that much easier. And that ladies, and gentlemen is what this global Islamic violence is all about.

Ever wonder what Jesus meant when he said. “But he who endures to the end shall be saved,” Matthew 24:13. A read of Matthew 24 might provide some clues. Surely suggesting that times will get difficult for Christendom. No doubt because there will be a remnant within Christendom, who will continue to to preach the gospel of His coming kingdom through out America and the community of nations. With a focus where evil is most deadly, the Arab/Muslim world. Which could well include an American community because the Muslim population is growing exponentially through out the United States. To the extent that they are becoming a cities within a city. And, that is a very dangerous trend.

Succeeding Aesop’s observation of a people of impressive appearances, but also of sufficient intellect. Because the Spirit of the Almighty has enabled us to discern the prevailing trends of the time.
