why trump is dangerous

“People speak sometimes about the bestial cruelty of man, but that is terribly and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artistically cruel,” Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Unless it is 45 and all those associated with his fascist ideologies. All that could spell dooms day for American democracy. And hello to governance tailored after, Russian Vladimir Putin and Chinese Xi Jinping.

The civilized world considers such governance as artistically cruel. Artistically cruel, because its a charade for the hiding of their oppressive cruelty. Which is unmerciful inflicted upon all, who challenge their tyrannical governance.

Which seems to have a lot of appeal to 45. With his constant railings about draining the swamp. Largely focused upon career governmental employees. Who faithfully advise Presidents irrespective of party affiliation. Which includes eradicating the free press, a necessary hall mark for a sustainable democracy. Along with making the Congress and the Federal courts subservient to 45. Just like in Russia and China.

Would there be enough courage within our within our 50 states and territories to fight 45 to save American democracy?

45′ ambitions are clearly announced. There will be no peaceful transfer of power if 45 is denied a second term. 45 employs distasteful attacks declaring that the only he could loose would be through a rigged election. 45 is in urgent need of psychiatric care. Because, there is nothing normal about 45′ demeanor.

One suspects 45 envies Putin’s way of dealing with those who disagree with him. Poison them! Or Xi Jinping’s reindoctrination prisons, for those, he considers to be a threat, to his being the sole voice for Chinese governess. Including Saudi Arabia way of dealing with critics. Butcher them in an Embassy and then cry foul play!

What’s equaling shocking is how Republican office holders at every level of American governance faithfully support 45. Much could be said about such rational, but it’s rather useless because its self evident. Republicans have a streak of fascist ideologies within themselves. So they may wish 45 would tone down his insulting rhetoric. They’ll live with it because its 45′ fascist ideologies that they support.

So it should also be self evident that, 03 November 2020, is about saving American democracy. With its present entitlements of social security, medicare, medicaid, the affordable care act and unemployment insurance and much more. High on the agenda, if Democrats retake the senate will be livable wages, employment security, housing and more.

Get out the vote for Biden/ Harris, and where you live, democratic candidates. This writer is a credentialed political scientists. American freedom is at risk of becoming a footnote of history.

American democracy over the centuries has rid itself of its faults by extending democracy to those disenfranchised. Another cleansing step is on the horizon. Through the Black Lives Matter movement. A second term for 45 will make that journey far more difficult, and maybe impossible.

In Florida, where I live, we the voters passed a constitutional amendment granting full citizenship to convicted felons, who have completed their sentences.

Florida’s republican governor and republican controlled legislature has fought to deny former felons full citizenship. Why? Because they fear they’ll register to vote as democrats. There has been successful push back against the governor and the legislature. But the republicans, are still at it, by adding into law ways to deny former felons full citizenship.

It’s difficult for this writer to understand how anyone, who values American democracy can be a Republican. Their rational which this writer has studied causes this conclusions. They are adherents to democracy in word only. The old adage rings true, “Actions speak louder than words.”

think, 03 Nov 2020

“The price good people pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men,” Plato.

Perspective voters seem inclined to give the edge to trump, when it comes to the economy. But that’s, where 45 is most vulnerable. In that 45 can’t manage his own finances, how can he successfully manage the nations finances. He can’t!

Here’s an excerpt from a New York Times investigation into his tax records. There report revealed a string of financial losses that helped him avoid paying taxes, and showed the president is beset by hundreds of millions in personal debt that will come due within the next four years.

During a news conference, 45 called the Times report, “totally fake news.” Not a shock because it’s what to expect from the nothing guy. Attack, deny, bully 45′ arsenal for ignoring responsibility.

Amy Coney Barrett

“The world has yet to see what God will do with a person fully consecrated to Him,” D. L. Moody.

Well, D.L. Moody, the world has seen what consecration to Him can accomplish individually, and nationally, and its occurred more than once. A favorite channel for such an experience is through national governments. (cp. Romans 13:1-5). Think people, not institutions, whether secular or religious! You might think loose cannons!

The Bible is the standard bearer for attaining and sustaining a viable existence from A-Z. Pick any letter that might be of interest for you. Like E for economy, or L for life and H for health. Under each letter other subsets exist.

Governments are God’s servants for creating the various pathways through the aforementioned. And, it’s accomplished through we the electorate, the government.

The problem is that the electorate has lost its spiritual equilibrium, and consequently the government has been secularized. Creating an America that is so divided through partisan politics. That the nation may find itself involved in another civil war. If the presidency on, 03 November 2020, is captured by one side that views by the other as dangerous to its agenda.

Take L equaling life and a subsets thereof being abortion and Affordable Care Act. There is no way that those issue can be resolved in an amiable manner. Especially since 45 picked, Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be elevates as a Supreme Court justice. She could well be the vote that overturns Roe v Wade, and the Affordable Care Act.

And who gives the presidency to 45 for a second time. He lost the presidency the first time by virtue of national vote, The same will occur in 2020. 45 has committed himself to no peaceful orderly transition of power in defeat. His declared way to a fascist second term, is through the Supreme Court. Why because 45 believes that the socialist left will be unwilling to take on his fascists right when push comes to shove.

The beauty of our Constitution is that we the people are the government. With all constitutional office holders being subject to the electorate. And within that frame work, exists the establishment for a separation between church and state.

Meaning that in America the state must be neutral concerning religion and religion can’t become the state. Though many think otherwise, and there lies a major problem that will be very difficult to resolve. Because there are many religionist, who see that as their pathway for eradicating the separation of church and state.

America is as beautiful, as it is unique. Because it’s, we the people who are the legal authority, for how our servants within the executive, congress and judicial branch execute our wishes.

The dilemma is that among we the people a majority of Christ followers are suppose to be the law makers. But everyone knows the polarization of America falls at the doorsteps of American churches. And the churches are so splintered that America has lost its footing to govern. Therefore there is no Christ majority, and that absences is what could propel America into a civil war.

In and through Christ all is not lost. Because we have this eternal promise. “The eyes of the LORD run to an fro through out the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:). The of, of the LORD is in behalf of the people and not the churches. T

he church is declared to be putrid and disgusting. (cp. Revelation 3:14-17). Because they are like the profiteers, that Jesus kicked out of the temple. Doing what they do for prestige and money. (cp. John 2:13-16).

Perhaps that’s the way its suppose to be. Because this age like previous ages will end. And a new age will appear. And that age, with all of its horrors, will make this age look glorious. Hard to imagine, but so it will be.

The prophet Isaiah gave us a sketch of world history by authority from Divine Providence. It’s up to us to figure how to put the puzzle together, so that we can know the historical links. The prognosis is not good, if one studies those overlapping links. (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).

its that one or the another one

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars, the deeper the grief, the closer to God,” Fydor Dostoevsky.

Surely is so concerning the stars, however, not so sure that people find closeness to God through grief. My experience is that more often than not, it’s the opposite. There seems to be a tendency to blame God, for the circumstances that brought about ones grief.

Grief like all other human experiences is all about our humanity. There is an exit from one humanity which is based upon the future. The more familiar we are with the holy writ given to us by the everlasting God. The more equipped, we are to deal with grief through its many expressions.

There is an expression given to us by the brother of Jesus. He jumps all over us by going, as far, as to call us, adulterers and adulteresses! His scolding of us is about our tendency to be so earthly minded that we are of no heavenly good. He’s saying to us that we have a tendency to put the buggy before the horse. He concludes by saying such ways make us enemies of God. (cp. James 4:4). It’s the surest way for not being able to deal with grief.

Don’t be to critical of James because he was addressing people, who should have known better. People who were familiar with his brother Jesus, either from personal experiences or from others, who knew all about that experience directly from Jesus.

This writer knows a lot about grief because his mother was murdered when he was 9 years old. It happened on a very cold, iced and snowy day. Our last encounter ended this way. On our front porch, she put her arm around me. Gave me a big hug and and a kiss on my cheek, and said be a good boy. I responded, I will. Off I went to my godmothers house, to join my brother and cousins in fun filled day. In was the last fun filled day for me for nearly two decades. My grief nearly destroyed me. It didn’t bring me any closer to God. Quite to the contrary! Then I found Jesus. My life was reinvented from grief to joy.

True Christendom is all about this experience. “Therefore, if any one is in Christ, they have become a new creation. Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new! (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17). To get there everyone must get there through Romans 10:9-10).

It has nothing to do with church, social standing, or Dostoevsky ideologies. Which often serve as the greatest blockades, to closeness to God no matter what the season.

more at risk than meets the eye

“I perceived that when an acorn and a chestnut fall side by side, the one does not remain inert to make way for the other, but both obey their own laws, and spring and grow and flourish as best as they can, till one perchance overshadows and destroys the other. If a plant cannot according to its nature, it dies, so does man,” Edgar Allan Poe.

Previously the fascist tendency of the Republican party came to age with 45. Who is the most uncouth nut to fall to the ground. And as a pure fascist, 45 by perchance overshadows the other nut. With Poe’s charade making it clear the other nut will die. Under the supposedly stewardship of the other nut called Biden and collaborators.

Poe’s charade for this discussion is all about the survival of American democracy. There is only one way to save American democracy is for the electorate to defeat American style fascist leanings of the Republican party. Retire 45 at the ballot box! A second term will end American democracy.

More than 200 retired generals, admirals endorse Biden, including some who served under Trump. “Our allies no longer trust or respect us, our enemies no longer fear us,” said the former officers and officials who wrote in a letter released, Thursday, 24 September 2020.” (Source: NBC News).

“Never in recent history have so many senior and former U.S. officials publicly attached the Commander in Chief they served, or the decisions he’s made, as the ranks lining up saying, President Donald Trump put himself and his re-election ahead of country threatening its security.” (Source: Time, by Kimberly Dozier).

Military, and security officials from both parties blast Trump saying, “Trump not equal to the challenge of the job.” (Source: USA Today).

45 is a monster, and as such, he can’t be believed or trusted. Forces must come together and deny 45 everything on his agenda. Which spells disaster, for the average working Americans.

There is a great divide between the Democrats and Republicans. The Bible records this eventual dooms day. With the Apostle to our era of history recording the following, “But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another.” (cp. Galatians 5:15). If that’s not a sufficient wake up call, Jesus Himself said. “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand!” (cp. Mark 3:25). For our purposes that house is the United States. And the devouring will be by mutual effort! Taking us right back to Poe’s analogy. With one major difference both will die!

it is all about 45

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it — always! Mahatma Gandhi.

Many people are in a state of despair because number 45. He’s bankrupt concerning truth. Love for 45 is all about self adoration. Forty five is a tyrant because of his self fascist leanings. A second term for 45 means good bye American democracy. Indeed, 45 is a murderer clearly demonstrated through 45 failure concerning COVID-19 pandemic.

Forty fives self centered insulting highfalutin demeanor make 45 seemingly invincible. But in the end they always fall, 03 November 2020, must become 45′ political tombstone.

The prophet Jeremiah surely had the likes of 45 in mind when he wrote, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according the fruit of his doings.” (cp. Jeremiah 17:9-10).

reflections from the waters of life

“Hug and kiss whoever helped get you financially, mentally, morally or emotionally to this day. Parents, mentors, friends or teachers. If you’re to uptight to do that, do the old fashioned handshake thing, but I recommend a hug and a kiss, and without admitting to yourself that absolutely no one gets this far alone,” Stephen King.

Decades pass and somethings are always are continual reflection. My Dad was a hard worker and an exceptionally great provider. His approach to child rearing came from a very unusual perspective.

In our house, moms and his bedroom, he shared this antidote. “My dad took me out in a boat and threw me into lake Erie. And said, ‘Swim or drown.'” No commentary he just left it there.

And threw, numerous adolescent hot spots. He never offered any advice or help. Such a reaction for me was very hurtful.

Now decades older I’m able to see it from a different angle. Knowing Dad wasn’t going to be there for me. That made me very resilient. And thus, a self sufficient and determined problem solver. For myself, and the communities I have served and continue to serve. His old adage swim or drown has played over in my mind many times over the decades.

Then there was, Walter and Amelia Brown. They were close friends of the family. During one of my most troubling hot spots, they very conspicuously placed a single copy of the Gospel of John. I remember reading some of it, but there was never anything memorial about what I read that seemed to impact me. But it did!

Here’s what the Bible says about such incidences, “So shall My word be that goes from My mouth; it shall not return to me void, but shall accomplish what I please, it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (cp. Isaiah 55:11).

I the truest sense of the following it’s how I became a Christ follower, But Isaiah, is very bold and says, “I was found by those who did not seek Me, I was made manifest to those who sought Me not.” (cp Isaiah 65:1; Romans 10:20). That was 66 years ago.

My Dad, and the Brown’s have long ago moved on to eternity awaiting their eternal judgment. (cp. Revelation 20:11-15). As for the Brown’s their judgment will be favorable, I suspect. As for my Dad, I am hopeful but not certain. It’s not goodness that matters. It’s the new birth through Christ that is the difference maker.

hoax or not

“Show me a man or a woman alone, and I’ll show you a saint. Give me two, and they’ll fall in love. Give me three and they’ll make the charming thing we call society. Give me four and they’ll build a pyramid. Give me five and they’ll be one an outcast. Give me six and they’ll reinvent prejudice. Give me seven and in seven years they’ll reinvent warfare. Man may have been made in the image of God, but human society was made in the image of His opposite number, and is always trying to get back home,” Stephen King.

Making sense out of, Kings, cynicism of human behavior. “And I will put mutual hate between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed. He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel,” Genesis 3:15.

Now the Biblical critique which has no cynicism. I will put enmity (meaning mutual hate) between you (Lucifer) and the woman (mother of humanity, Eve) and between your seed (natural propensity for evil at birth) and her seed (conflicted by what good represents, the will of God, Genesis 3:5), He shall bruise your head (because of the choice the parents of humanity made. Evil will dominate but with a bruised heel, allowing good to conquer evil as shown) and you shall bruise his heel.

Telling us that we can be changed, and through that change, we can change our world. Because, “Insomuch as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

All the aforementioned raises some very interesting perspectives. For instance we are told that God created man in His own image. He created Adam and Eve male and female. He blessed them and gave them global dominance over every living thing. (cp, Genesis 1:27-30).

After Adam and Eve sinned, most likely, that’s when they lost their likeness with God. It’s being suggested that they were people absent flesh and blood. Support for such a notion is substantiated by what is said in Hebrews 2:14, “He Himself shared in the same.” Flesh, and blood is what eventually kills we humans.

Jesus speaking said, “Behold My hands and and My Feet, that it is Myself. Handel Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” (cp. Luke 24:39).

Absent flesh, bones and blood, Adam and Eve were spirit beings with superior intellects. Because they were created in the image of God. They were given the responsibility of managing our somewhat global sphere, as it navigates itself on its axis. Which also magnifies and glorifies our Creator. Now think about this, our earth circumference measures 40,075 km or 24,920 mi. How would it be possible, for Adam and Eve to subdue and manage such a huge global body? By instant thought to any location on earth just by willing it.

Such a scenario is seen through John 20:19, Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews. Suddenly, Jesus came, and stood in there midst, and said, “Peace be with you.”

Sealing this hypothesis, and after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, the doors were shut, and stood in there midst, and said, “Peace be with you!” (cp. John 20:26).

These are turbulent times with only one promise these times will get worse. The new normal isn’t a cliche. It’s an unintended warning. It’s just the beginning of trouble.

Those of us, who are a part of the Christ family have an unimaginable future. Which for, this writer is of great consolation.

Someday no matter how it occurs, the secure in Christ will have a body like His resurrected body. Think of that time and space travel instantaneously. Perfect judgment, superior intellects, absent flesh, bones and flesh. Which served to alienate us from our Creator. Perfectly illustrated by death. A phenomenon which has no cure, apart from Jesus. Which gives real insights into His words, I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly!” (cp. John 10:10b).

The beauty of it all, “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Who will transform our lowly body that it may be transformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.” (cp. Philippians 3:20-21).

a trail of hope

“Remember, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of all things, and no good thing ever dies,” Stephen King, Shawshank Redemption.

“But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance,” Apostle Paul.

Paul went on to define hope as a matter of faith. And ties it together with eagerness. “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Hope and faith are interchangeable nouns, and nouns can qualify events. Hope is rooted through faith. For it is recorded, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for those who hope must believe that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Those outside of the Christ redemptive experience must rely upon circumstances for hope to occur. But those having experienced the blood sacrifice redemption of Christ, rely upon faith to bring their hope to reality.

But not always, as hope wishers want. For Paul wrote again, “Now He, who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Spirit is because He makes intersession for the saints according to the will of God.” In other words, what one hopes for by faith may not be in ones best interest. And when hope, and faith, don’t materialize. Perhaps some soul searching is in order to determine ones motives.

strange worlds

“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and some time they win,” Stephen King.

Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. He practiced sorcery, divination and witchcraft, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits and with wizards. (cp. 2 Chronicles 33:1;6:b).

Here’s an account of when Jesus arrived to the country of the Gadarenes. And Jesus, was greeted by a lunatic. He lived a strange life of isolation. At night, and during the day people could hear him making loud noises. He was scared from cutting himself with stones.

And when, he saw Jesus he implored Him and asked, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You that you do not torment me.”

Jesus responded and commanded, “Come out of him you an unclean spirit!” Then Jesus asked, “What is your name?” He answered, “My name is Legion, for we are many!”

A large herd of swine was feeding near the mountains. So all the demons begged Jesus saying, “Send us to the swine that we may enter them!”

And at once, Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirit went out, and entered the swine of about two thousand. The entire herd with speed ran down the steep mountain. Entering the sea and drowned themselves.

Finally Jesus said to the one liberated from being demon possessed, “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had compassion on you.” (cp. Mark 5:1-19).

let the derailed be railed

“The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the earth, to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:).

Does anyone know that pathway to such a magnificent experience? Just reflect on His promise, He will show Himself strong in behalf anyone whose heart is loyal to Him!

In a world that’s being ravaged  by the forces of nature perhaps in a state of rebellion. Because more and more people are placing God on their irrelevant list.

Compounded by a powerful pandemic tagged COVIT-!9.  With our cities being set ablaze. Lawlessness abounding! Churches are closing their doors because people are staying home. Forcing a curtailing of revenues necessary for sustainable existence.

Concluding with a new mantra, it’s the economy that matters. Lost lives are expendable. It’s the other way lives are essential. If the global community is to have a future, its wrapped up in the manifestation of 2 Chronicles 16:9.

when all is said and done there is more to be said

What is there about God that allows Christendom to have so many conflicting notions concerning Biblical doctrines. Crusades had been fought costing millions of lives, So that a particular Christian doctrinal ideology may be deemed as having its origin from Almighty God Himself.

It amounts to this, with a particular mortal announcing the God gave him or her a particular message for a particular ism. Bingo! A new denominational church comes into existence. And, it’s safe to say God had nothing to do with it.

Murderous conflicts between Christian sects caused civilized countries to pass laws forbidding certain behaviors that were contrary to civility as being criminal. Now that’s a terrible history for any tent that has such a legacy. Especially when Jesus declared, “Peace  I leave with you, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled or be afraid.” (cp. John 14:27). There is simply no violence of any kind tolerable from or among those who name Christ as their Redeemer.

Christendom today must be seen as an entrepreneur of rivalries between competing businesses. The products they sell are various religious paraphernalia. At a cost to the congregants sometimes beyond their means. They do so because they are told in some incidences, that a 10% tithe of ones gross income is a Biblical requirement. And in various ways, some are told, you don’t want to get on the bad side of God. Not so! Though it was so under the law of  Moses. Right through until this current epoch in history. Today the emphasis is on cheerful giving. Though cheerful giving sometimes amounts to skillful blackmail. It’s an doctrine introduced by the Apostle Paul. No matter how its accomplished the most successful of those chief operating officers, called clergy, living extremely plush lifestyles.

By now it might seem strange to some that this Padre is a devout Christian. But it’s so! There is no exploitation for personal power, social status or economic gain.

Here are a few Christian doctrines that are irrelevant today. Prayer, speaking in tongues, Sabbath observation, end of this age transition into the next historical epoch.

For example, Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, they who believes in Me, the works that I do, they will do also, and greater works than these, they will do because I go to the Father. And whatsoever they ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (cp. John 12-14). Doesn’t work today!

Various similarities occurred during the age previous to ours. Which, included the four Gospels, with modern Christendom still stuck in the notion that prayers must offered to God in the name of Jesus. Is prayer relevant today? Yes! But! No promises are made. (cp. Philippians 4:6-7).

Next: Speaking in tongues a modern day an errant phenomenon practiced by evangelical fundamentalist Pentecostals. They collectively utter on with indistinguishable  babbling. Again, Paul wrote. “Those who speak in a tongue edifies themselves. If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God.” (cp.1 Corinthians 14:4a; 27-28).

Sabbath observation by certain denominations is also an errant practice. Though all of Christendom should respect, but not observe Saturday as God’s Sabbath day of rest. (cp. Exodus 20:8-11). Why respect and not practice God’s Sabbath? Again, it was instituted by God through Moses as a part of the age of law. The law condemned, and proved that humans were forever alienated from God. Christendom today honors Sunday as the Lord’s day. Because His life, death and resurrection did what the Sabbath day observation couldn’t. Abolished the law of death through Christ. (cp. Romans 6:3 -10).

History moves on, and as it does, new scenarios confront humanity. They are all the handy work of Divine Providence. The prophet Isaiah recorded it this way for us. “Remember the former things of old. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times, things not yet come.” Saying My counsel shall stand, ‘I will do all My pleasures.'” (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10). His counsel, and pleasures are all contained in what we call the Bible.

History, as we know, and experience it, is due for a sudden change. Biblical scholars refer to this present age, as the age of grace. Better known as the church age. Suddenly, Christ will return and close out this age. And instigate, His day of wrath upon humanity. Better known as the Lord’s day

What shouldn’t be surprising is that, the so called men of God, do not stand united concerning the details of such a historic and horrific event. But each holder of the Lord’s day, declares that their interpretation is a God given to them revelation.

Basically, it’s a seven year period known as the great tribulation. Some argue that just prior to that event Christ returns and raptures (Latin for remove) believers. So that they will not experience God’s wrath upon a Christ denying world.

Others argue that the rapture will occur after believers experiencing 3 1/2 years of unfathomable anguish.

That third group of pompous theologians, say not so fast! Believers, or the church will experience all seven years of the Great Tribulation. Then Christ will return to exit His believers. What will follow will be His 1,000  year reign upon this earth. With a peace unknown to humanity since before the fall of Adam and Eve.

In closing, return and review the opening paragraph. There is an answer, but it requires setting aside every thing held truthful about Christendom. The less one knows, or holds, as accurate Christian doctrines the better! The Bible is a dependable truth teller. All that is required is a sincere heart and an open mind with no ulterior motives. There is one prerequisite. All seekers of divine truth must have a relationship with Jesus. It’s a merciful uplifting experience. See, and apply Romans 10:9-10, for the beauty of the experience absorb verses 11-13.

Some last suggestion do no not join a church. You are a church. John calls us Lampstands. With Christ Himself and His angels serving as our guardians. See Revelation 1:12-20; Hebrew 1:14; Psalms 91:11-12. It’s exhilarating to experience angelic occurrences. The greater the entanglement one has with this world the greater the difficulty one has experiencing the fullness of Divine Providence. (cp James 4:4; Psalms 1:1-3).

Carefully study Romans through Philemon because they focus on what we must know about this current epoch of history. That doesn’t mean you are to exclude the other books from your study. The entire Bible contains vital information. But if our epoch in history is not clearly understood, it’ll be impossible to fully grasp the massive writings within our holy writ.

Here’s a tip: The past is just that, the past. The future can be understood by observing the presence. It’s the complete doorway to the future of Biblical history. Amounting to end of civilization as we know it! An eventual make over of the earth and heaven. And the scoffers laughed, but it’s said, they who laugh first, don’t get the last laugh.

throwing a single stone


Seemingly small things can make a difference. It was very cold with lots of snow and very slippery roads. I had left my girlfriends house. She and her family resided in a small college town. Standing on the corner for a considerable amount of time. Hoping to hitchhike a ride to my destination. No success because not a single car passed. Thinking about walking 20-30 miles was an option.

But the area was very rural, and it entered my mind that I might freeze to my death. As night time temperatures hovered around ten to twenty degrees. So I weighed my options, remembering that a local church was nearby. And next to the church, was the pastors parsonage. I knocked on the door at about one o’clock in the morning.

Explained my situation and was warmly offered shelter. When I woke up it, was a Sunday morning with bright sunshine. I got dressed, made the bed and got a quick ride home.

Mother Teresa got it right when she said, “I alone cannot change the world. But I can cast a stone a across the water and create many ripples.”

That’s exactly what  that pastor, and his wife did on that cold winter night. Little did they know that decades later the gospel of grace is the stone; I cast across the waters of life creating many ripples, for the newness of life through Christ Jesus.

Indeed it’s what might be considered insignificant that can turn out to be very significant as life ripples to the shores of death. For it is written through one couple suffering and death enter the world. And the Apostle declared, “Inasmuch than as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is the devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).

lurking shadows

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people” Carl Jung.

For You will light my lamp, the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. (cp. Psalms 18:28).

For you were once in darkness but now you are light in the Lord. Walk then as people of the light. (cp. Ephesians 5:8).

Bringing about these results: Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God, the fragrance of Christ among those who are saved, and those who are perishing. (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15).

9/11 trauma continues

President George Washington’s America has changed. In 1783, while in Ireland, the President describe the goodness of America. “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and prosecuted 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.”

Muslims by their lack of decency and propriety of conduct do not merit the enjoyment of American goodness. Because President Washington was referring to our culture, ethics and biblical morals, binding us together through our Judeo-Christian heritage. Muslims do not value our culture, ethics or our biblical morals. So perfectly crafted by God, to bring Jew, and Gentile together in an inseparable bond.

Instead Muslims are committed to remake America in the image of their culture, and ethics, as crafted from their Koranic laws. All that is Islamic is foreign, as to what represents our Judeo-Christian heritage, and what is American. For over two hundred years, people have been coming to America, disagreeing with our Judeo-Christian heritage. But they assimilated themselves into our culture. While honoring their own ethnic traditions, without demanding the abolishing of the nations Judeo-Christian heritage, as do Muslims.

With this fixed mind set among Muslims to destroy everything non-Muslim, there is no way the two cultures can abide together in harmony. Which means, our different worlds will collide in disaster. Then the call must be, America, get rid of Muslims within our communities, before they get rid of us!!!

With each day that passes and more Muslims move into our communities; with the construction of yet, another Mosque. The harder it will be to eradicate the nation of this abominable evil. SHOCKING NEWS, in the Tampa Bay community of Florida, there are 18 Mosques. Along with two propaganda machines that give cover for Islamic Jihadists, holy warriors, when they get caught. What will happen, when one or more of those Imam’s orders one or more of their followers to strike?

Time to fear and time to act. How many new Mosques are springing up in your community, where you live, along with their Islamic propaganda machines. With each new Mosque, what we value as non-Muslims is put at risk.

Some would have you think that American greatness was the result of American ingenuity. Such thinking is foolishness. America’s past greatness was shaped by her awareness of the following. “He gives power to the faint; and to those who have no might he increases strength. Even the youths shall faint; and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall. But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not be faint,” Isaiah 40:29-31. That has always been America’s strength. America has drifted far from her dependence upon her Creator. Secularism, multiculturalism with its peripheral trimmings of greed, pride and selfishness. Which has resulted in the sweeping of American dependence upon God under the carpet. America is in need of a great spiritual revival, if she is to regain her rightful place of prominence in the world community. And such prominence will be needed, if America is to defeat the forces of Islamic evil.

Because Islam was born from evil, has survived by being evil, and will never rest until evil has prevailed. Therefore, only Christendom which is the converse of Islam, must mobilize and strike this evil dead. Through your mobilization develop and employ nonviolent actions.
