I am hungry

It has been said, “As America goes, so goes the world.” You’ll know that the world is in big trouble, when it is said, “As china goes, so goes the world.” That day is fast approaching.

Hunger an increasing phenomena in America, why?

It’s a forerunner of a time declared to be a time like no other. No not since the beginning of the world, which will never again to be duplicated, Matthew 24:7;21.

So for now, a short discussion on hunger, its causes, but not absent a solution.

Each year more working Americans are declared, “food insecure,” meaning they do not know where they will find their next meal.

According to the nations largest food bank, America’s Second Harvest. Second Harvest asserts that food insecurity is experienced by 70% of their clients. Thirty three percent of those people are completely without a food source.

America’s Second Harvest is headquartered in Chicago Illinois. They also have offices in the nations capital.

They serve as a food distribution for the nations soup kitchen’s, food banks, and shelters for the homeless.

They assist thousands of such organizations across the country. They have provided assistance for a shocking, at least, twenty five million people in any one calendar year.

One might wonder, just who do they represent? Perhaps concluding that these people are suffering some form substance abuse, or some other self inflicted behavioral abnormality.

Resulting in a collection of people, who could care for themselves, if they modified their destructive lifestyles.

The kind of people that makes it easy for the more fortunate of society to ignore. Shrugging off the hardships of the hungry, as people who are getting what they deserve.

Good, and decent people are all around us, who are barely making it from one meal to the next.

Discussing hunger, I talked with a woman, who had attempted to organize a more active Parent Teachers Association at her child’s school. She said, that she could not organize a more active P.T.A. Because she said, “they had to work two or more jobs so that the family can have food!”

People with a Christian consciousness need to step up and fill a serious void. We are instructed to practice a religion that is not defiled which means to serve people without respect to their afflictions, James 1:27.

It is one way to separate ones self from a score of behaviors not favored by Christ. It’s what James meant when he wrote be “unstained by the world!

The above mentioned people may well be our neighbors. They work at jobs that do not pay them enough money to make ends meet. So, they sacrifice food.

That’s why we need a unionized work force. Such workers are less likely to be food insure.

Republicans through out government are the primary culprits for food insecurity. Because they favor conglomerate profits over living wages.

America’s Second Harvests reports they also serve senior citizens. Again people who have worked all there lives. But find themselves, without sufficient money for food.

Most unfortunately, included among the hungry are the nations children. No child, for whatsoever should go hungry!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that millions of American households have difficulty providing enough food for their families. With the agency reporting that the number keeps growing exponentially annually.

Why is hunger such a problem in America?

Two reasons exist for such a possibility, one is found in 2 Chronicles 36:16 which reads, “They mocked the messengers of God, and ignored valuable instructions coming from God. Until the LORD’s wrath rose against the people, until there was no remedy.”

Hosea declares, “They will not *frame* their ways to turn to their God; for the spirit of harlotry (unacceptable behaviors) is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.”

The only hope for a troubled America which has stirred up the wrath of God. Because as a people and a nation, America has refused to *frame* all behaviors according to the doings of the LORD!

Two examples killing babies, Exodus 20:13, and gay marriages, Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5 and Ephesians 5:31.

Hope is for God to declare that He has found a Noah, and in today’s world many Noah’s. People who have found grace in His eyes. Just people perfect in their generation because they have walked with their God, Genesis 6:8-9.

A necessary occurrence because God told Noah, and no doubt equally applicable today. “The end of humanity is before Me, I will destroy them from the earth,” Genesis 6:13, then, and for today, Matthew 24:7, 21.

And if our fate is as fortunate, as was Noah’s generation. God who values righteousness, will spare us. And as He told Noah, He will tell us, be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth, Genesis 9:1.

And as we know from a previous discussion (Supernatural Art of Mind Shifting, 04 November 2021), that the settled can be altered by His grace because righteousness has come before Him.

So let it be in our time, let us pray.

power of one

“Gone God’S KINGPINS IN 30 DAY’S. That’s an historical sketch  from Hosea 5:7.

Defined as a time in history when Israel, Ephraim (Great Britain) but not directly mentioned, but grouped in Genesis 48:16-19 and Genesis 17:4 and equally Manasseh (U.S.). Behaviors that are described as a betrayal of God. With Hosea using a catch all phrase, “begotten strange children.” Which can only suggest an ugliness whose only solution is to erase them from the face of the earth.

But is Hosea referring to lunar months, or is he referring to the quickness of God’s destruction upon those three nations?

Such a question is unanswerable requiring the close observation of world events. Paired with scriptures associated with this series, and other scriptures associated available through your research.

This is very observable, Ephraim (Great Britain) made the world safe from God’s enemies for a very long time. Ephraim’s greatness as a global power has been discussed earlier in this series, but today Great Britain’s as a global power has been destroyed. Great Britain survival is depended upon his older brother Manasseh, the United States.

With many observers of scriptural history seeing serious cracks in Manasseh’s invulnerability, as a superpower. With strong suggestions that the United States is about to collapse as an economic and military super power. Hello China!

Should that occur, Israel is sure to have her hands full, as the tiny nation engages her Muslim Arab enemies in defensive wars.

Then maybe our Noah will emerge from within Israel to save her and the world again. The truth of the matter revolves around how Israel goes, so goes the world.

Israel, and in particular Jerusalem is the focus of world politics. Because their is an unexplainable drive to control Jerusalem among the nations. Who sense that who controls Jerusalem controls the world.

It’s no secret to us, who dwell within the Body of Christ. The god of this world, the anointed cherub (Ezekiel 28:14), and now the global mischief maker is all about deny Christ His announced capital city, Jerusalem.

And who is his chief architect, the Russian bear. Just as Christ dwells in us and influences us. The converse reality is so for those owned by Lucifer.

Slight diversion there, but should spend more time writing about that, because it answers so many questions about human behavior.

So what is the answer to our Lunar question? Swiftness as opposed to a thirty day period? Swiftness in terms of unknown time measurements.

However it plays out, it’s a lot more than scary. Because of the swift away from God among those nations to secularism is very noticeable, especially with Great Britain and the United States.

It’s a secular manifestation to advocate that any God notion meets God’s criteria of righteousness.

Three quick examples, Christendoms, meaning Western nation states growing willingness to sanction homosexuality as acceptable behaviors. Despite God  calling such behavior an abhorrence worthy of death, see Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13.

With the Apostle Paul, the voice of Jesus for our era. Declaring that God looks upon homosexuality as a lifestyle worthy of death. Serious stuff available to be discovered at Romans 1:24-32.

But if Israel, Ephraim (Great Britain) and Manasseh (U.S.) managed to survive such clear condemnations aforementioned. It’ll be because God observed another Noah. “A just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God,” Genesis 6:9.

A generation of godliness scheduled for extermination by flood waters, spared because of one person. The power of one.

But for our modern era, our Noah, will have to be the re-energized body of believers. Declared to be one in Christ. (cp. Romans 12:5).

Fighting and struggling  to return Manasseh, Ephraim and Israel to live within God’s *Frame* of expectations, see Hosea 5:4a. That might cause God to change His mind once again and show mercy.

So for the doubters and skeptics keep your attention focuses on world events. Because we know that they who get the first laugh, also shed the first tears.

Tough times causes God to take care of His own. Mysteriously as follows. “The LORD bless and keep you. The LORD make His face shine upon you. The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace,” Numbers 6:24-26.

puff it is over

Is there anything that drives humanity more, than the drive to be independent by doing things our own way? It’s a trait that we inherited from our ancestors in Eden centuries ago.

And we know that didn’t play out well for them then, or for us today!

This discussion will paint a very scary and dreadful future for the community of nations. Because of Israel, Great Britain and the United States have failed to become the Noah they and the world needed.

From our distant past God spared His creation from annihilation because of Noah. Had He not found Noah, we wouldn’t be here today. But that was then, and this now, will it be annihilation or grace?

The pride of Israel could be symbolic of the United States, now the superior of the two nations.

Which is the inclusiveness within Manasseh’s birthright which Jacob passed on to his grandsons.

But blessed with the responsibility, and consequences!

Perhaps from Manasseh, Jacob’s America will rise another Noah? And able to testify for itself and Israel. Inclusive to the entire community of nations, frame your walk God’s way.

That was the message the ancient historian Hosea hammered them with. Referring to them as rebels.

The answer is on the horizon, according to our historian Hosea. Having declared, “There is no longer any place to hide.” Great Britain, the United States and Israel had drifted into  behaviors  described as whoredoms.

Which suggests that those nations have taken an independent path to survival, by setting aside God’s expectations for their own.

And that’s why the ancient world reaching us today needed, and needs a Redeemer.

As for Israel, despite her resilience’s for survival, and prosperity against overwhelming odds. Representing the power of God to protect His own.

In the end Israel is described as being defiled. Suggesting that Israel is seen by God being filthy. As for Ephraim, (Great Britain) she is charged with harlotry (meaning being promiscuous), see Hosea 5:3. Promiscuous as Great Britain has disregarded its Judea-Christian responsibilities.

In verse four our historian employs the word frame. Suggesting that God expected Great Britain or Ephraim, the United States as Manasseh and Jacob as Israel to frame their nation states as servants of the Almighty. Executing His purposes within carefully framed boundaries within His expectations.

As for America, God had instilled such desires within the hearts of the nations founding fathers.

Even from the not to distant past you would hear politicians declare that the United States as beacon of light to the world.

Such expressions came from verses like John 8:12. Then spoke Jesus unto them, “I am the light of the world. They that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

Today America has failed to walk that talk and shall pay the consequences. Hoses put it this way for America, Great Britain and Israel. “They will not frame their doings to turn to their God; for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, AND THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN THE LORD,” Hosea 5:4.

Perhaps the key to understanding such a declaration is found in verse five. And the pride of Israel does testify to his face. Therefore, shall Israel and Ephraim fall through iniquity. Judah shall fall with them.”

Notice the people and nations mentioned Israel, Ephraim (Great Britain) Judah, the Southern when the nation was of two kingdoms, but today an all inclusive expressions for the Jews collectively, note Ezekiel 37:22.

Manasseh is not mentioned, even though his lineage is American. We learned that from a previous discussion and substantiated from such scriptures as Genesis 17:4-6 and Genesis 48:16-20.

Apparently there is an awakening, but it appears to be to late. They shall go with their flocks, and with their herds to seek the LORD. With this being picturesque of a spiritual revival. Unfortunately, He has withdrawn Himself from them, and they shall not find Him. See Hosea 5:6.

Because Hosea said, that their behaviors said that their behaviors were marked by a betrayal of the LORD’ confidence.

Which seems to be a system of governance and behaviors that is very grotesque. So grotesque that Hosea uses the expression, ‘begotten of strange children.’ Grotesque enough that God had committed Himself to destroy them.

This destruction will be quick, ‘now shall a month destroy them …,’ Hosea 5:7. Suggesting that only a month will expire between the fall of one nation to the next nations demise, until all three have fallen. Gone God’s kingpins in thirty day’s!

The finale to follow tomorrow.

fear or not to fear

Can you imagine the United States, Great Britain and Israel evaporated within a month of each other? All because, they became the “begotten strange children.”

Make sense of the phrase, begotten strange children, by reading the previous two discussion.

How devastating will this experience be? Worse than the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan? Only experience will reveal its devastation.

But this Padre suspects it’ll be after this current era ends. The next more savage age has arrived.

And after its climax another era will appear. The creation of a new earth with Jesus taking control from the ancient city of Jerusalem.

But before all that occurs lets backtrack, and consider how America might be annihilated.

Opinions within, and outside of the government have criticized Biden’s exit from Afghanistan as a colossal failure. Opening the way for the Tailaban, and other American haters to recruit train and infiltrate America. And at the right time, they’ll  launch one or more 9/11 attacks.

Acerbated by the Biden’s poor vetting process in accepting Afghanistani refuges fleeing Afghanistan. Meaning those terrorist might already be here. All well acknowledged, if you pay attention to the various news sources.

Warfare is changing as nations have at their disposal satellites that can be nuclear armed. Along with nuclear armed submarines; able to silently sneak into American waters. and launch multiple strikes simultaneously. And why not Israel, and Great Britain spaced on month apart.

Before any of that can occur, perhaps God will use Israel again to save the world. That has been part of Israels history through out the Old Testament. And reaching such a possibility in our 21st century.

With news accounts hitting the news wires periodically. That Israel is planning to attack Iran in order to prohibit them from becoming a nuclear power. Because to Israelis, a nuclear armed Iran spells trouble for Israel.

Sending a clear signal to all other nations don’t bother my family, Great Britain and the United States. Keep in mind that God takes care of His own, and Israel belongs to God, first, and foremost!

Some will scoff at any notion of Israel being the final arbiter for free worlds king pins. But that’s the result of living outside of the providence of God Almighty. Who through Daniel established this eternal universal principles, “He gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him,” Daniel 2:21.

“This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He wills, and sets over it the lowest of me.” Daniel 4:17.

And reaching in the 21st century through the Apostle Paul, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

That the eyes of our understanding being enlightened, that we may know what is the purpose of our calling,” Ephesians 1:17-18.

And the global community has to contend with these words from Jesus, “For there shall be great suffering, such has never been experienced. Since the creation of the earth until now, no, nor ever shall be,” Matthew 24:21.

To the extent, said Jesus, “Unless something happens there will be no survival.” But the Jesus says climatically, “It will happen!” Matthew 24:22.

But should the opposite occur it’s because humanity refused to (“frame” Hosea 5:4) their actions according to God’s law.

Finding favor with God should be our national pursuit. If Americans make a u turn; and rediscover her past, then perhaps her best is still down the road.

Here is that glorious past that is worth regaining. In Genesis 49:22, the writer makes an indisputable statement. There he speaking Joseph the father of Ephraim and Manasseh. And states, “Joseph is a fruitful vine, even a fruitful vine by a well, whose branches run over the wall.

The writer is talking about the abundance of prosperity provide by God for those three nations.

In addition to being the most prosperous nations to carve out an existence for themselves. They have enjoyed God’s protection.

“The archers have violently attacked them, and have shot at them, and hated them. But their weapon abode in strength, and their arms and hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob,” Genesis 49:23-24.

dreadfulness its history

Closed out the previous discussion perhaps in a provocative manner which was not the intention. It’s real intention was, and is, America return to your first love!

Nevertheless there are likenesses between Trump, and Balerase strongman, Alexander Lukashento, and Trumps infatuation with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Something will occur in humanities history that will shake civilization to its very core. Resulting in unprecedented realization that the LORD has completely excused Himself from the affairs of His creation.

Causing a stunning  negative shift in attitudes about the LORD. Wake up will occur, but according to Hosea, it’ll be to late! For Hosea declares, … they will seek the LORD, but they will not find Him; He has withdrawn Himself from them, Hosea 5:6.

That represents the second most dreadful commentary that can befall a people and their nation. This is done undoubtedly because people have failed to seek the LORD. Now the consequences are ours to experience.

Hosea tells us why saying it’s because they have dealt treacherously against the LORD. Hosea describes this treachery as the, “begotten strange children,” Hosea 5:7. Which can only mean behaviors by thoughts and actions viewed by God as the ultimate departure from His counsel as recorded in the scriptures.

Moving to announce that Ephraim, Manasseh, and Judah, will be devoured within one month of each other, Hosea 5:7. How could this be possible that Great Britain, the United States and Israel could fall within a month of each other?

The answer is we really do not know with absolute certainty. What we have to do is look at what is occurring upon the world theater, and pair those events with this prophecy.

For starters take the American economy. It’s nothing like it use to be, and some economists are suggesting that it isn’t going to get better. They argue that America must get its financial house in order by substantially reducing its national debt.

To the point that every American will feel the pain of moving towards a balanced budget. Which will result with desperate people trying to make the best that they can concerning an economy that’s only going to get worse.

Those economists suspect, and fear. that more businesses will collapse with jobs gone forever. Causing more banks to fail and a repetition of Wall Street woes.

The global community is experiencing grotesque and vacillating weather patterns. Causing droughts, flooding, record setting heat waves, more frequent earthquakes, and erupting volcanoes.

All in their own way resulting in unimaginable crisis food shortages, and drinking water as such conditions sweep the global community.

Not to be forgotten the global pandemic, and it’s assorted variants, that show no indication of being eradicated. It now seems that the best that can be done is a hopeful control.

Remember it’s all about a people, excluding no one, who have determined that their way is better than God’s ways. And the prophet Hosea declared that, we are, “begotten of strange children.”

Giving evil freedom to potentially annihilate in short order, Great Britain, the United States and Israel, according to Hosea’s prophecy. Should elder brother, Manasseh be devoured, how long would it take before Ephraim and Judah are devoured? Hosea said within a month of each other.

More tomorrow.

America from something to nothing

We will be glad and rejoice in you; we remember your love more than wine. The upright will love you. A history of yesterday with little relevance today, why? It’ll unfold, as you read on. But if the nation is smart, she’ll sing, I am a wall, and my breasts are like towers; than was I in His eyes, as one that found favor.

Ephraim, Manasseh and Judah which regular readers learned represent Great Britain, the United States and modern day Israel. Three nations that have abundantly enjoyed the provisions of Genesis 49:22-23 and Hosea 5:2.

God given prosperity and protection are truly holy gifts from God which are often taken for granted. But all that is in jeopardy because the prophet Hosea sadly has announced. “… they have not known the LORD,” Hosea 5:4.

Those words represent the most dreadful commentary imaginable upon a nation or individual people.

Some think that the consequences of rejecting the LORD is an after death experience. Since many of these people reject life after death.

They live their lives by thought deeds and actions in mockery of God. Thinking that once they are gone that the worlds people will carry on the way people have always behaved. Conquering whatever is in their path that inhibits the evolutionary progress of humanity.

God can inflict misery upon the individuals and nations at anytime He so desires? Yes! But it is always done to catch our attention, so that government through the people might seek the LORD.

The peoples, and the nations being addressed here are Israel, Great Britain and the United States.

For reasons determined by God, He has favored Israel, Great Britain, and the United States.

With Manasseh, the United States as the youngest of the trio. Upon whose shoulders depends the survival of Great Britain and Israel.

AMERICA represents the only hope for a sane, safe and prosperous free world, that has the ability to extend itself internationally.

Only America stands in the way of evil from having its way with the international community.

But America is faltering in its responsibilities, and duties to God. Having made the point that God’s trio of favored nations have missed the mark of God’s expectations.

And earlier in this discussion the statement was made that God can inflict misery upon individuals or nations at will. How might God exercise His displeasure’s?

That will be the discussion for tomorrow. Could His execution of His displeasure’s come from Donald J, Trump?

Heaven help us! Let hell claim one of its favored sons. Before Trump turns America into a Belerase fashioned after after strong man, Alexander Lukashenko. Which also explains Trump’s infatuation with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

destruction how it works

It has been said that the truth will set you free. This discussion will create an understanding of truth with some of its peripheral benefits and consequences.

One of the disciples of Jesus shares God’s disappointment’s with humanity. He informs us that Jesus was in the world. And that the world was made through Him, and the world knew Him not. (cp. John 1:10)

God through the centuries has pursued the Jews with a passion of mercy because of devoted love.

Making attempt after attempt to reconcile the Jews to Himself. His final act of love for the Jews occurred when he took upon Himself the presences of being human.

Sacrificing Himself as the slaughtered Lamb upon the alter of the cross. The ultimate sacrifice for others. Only to be rejected once again by the Jews.

Extending His message of reconciliation to Gentile and Jew alike, “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (cp. John 3:17). And with most Gentiles having also rejected the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Prior to His incarnation into our world the Gentiles were used by God to punish the Jews for their disobedience. Now the Jewish Christian alliance is the worlds surest hope for for survival. Because its our birthright through His redemption of us that has made us one with God in purpose and destiny.

Some serious thought needs to be exercised, because the Jewish Christian alliance, has failed to be the worlds surest hope for survival.

God placed the worlds destiny upon Israel, Great Britain and the United States. Note Genesis 12:1-3, God’s plan, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” And Genesis 17:4-8, God’s plan, “I will make nations of you and kings shall come out of you. All the land of Canaan for an ever lasting possession, and I will be your God.” Canaan means all of Palestine belongs to Israel. No two state solution for the turbulent Middle East.

Of all the people upon the face of the earth through out the centuries, God has favored the Jews through the tribe of Judah, Genesis 49:1. Judah is used to refer to individual Jews, as well as the nation of Israel.

God then reached out to the rest of the world through Joseph. Joseph learned this from his father Jacob that his sons Ephraim and Manasseh were destined for greatness.

Ephraim’s seed would result in the birth of ‘multiple of nations.’ Which became Great Britain and her common wealth of nations.

Manasseh would also be ‘great.’ It was through Manasseh that the United States was born.

In Genesis 49:1, Jacob gathered his sons together for the sole purpose of telling them, “What shall befall them in the last days.” From the time that Jacob uttered those words, centuries history has transpired. Until we have reached our twenty first century.

From 2 Chronicles 36:16, we learn that people have mocked the messengers of God. Despising the very words of God. Adding insult to injury by ignoring His prophets. UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE. TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY!

That has played out through the course of Israeli history. And will continue play out upon Israel, and the global theater. Through the diminished influence of Great Britain and the United States. With Israel being made more vulnerable to her Arab Muslim neighbors, and a growing hostility from the world community.

Where does all this come from, it comes from the prophet Hosea. For God said, “I know that Ephraim and Israel are not hidden from Me. O Ephraim, you have committed whoredom and Israel is defiled,” Hosea 5:3.

Three short thoughts among many. First, British whoredom with its Islamic community, as Great Britain makes compromise after compromise to Islamic demands. Resulting in Great Britain being nothing more than a paper tiger in defense of Israel.

With the United States (Manasseh) rushing to mimic Great Britain as a paper tiger in defense of Israel.

Pay attention to President Biden, as he’s likely to go into the history books, as the president most hostile to Israel. Understand that Biden is associated with the greatest of harlots, the Roman Catholic church. And the collective papacy will never be satisfied until Israel is no more.

And thirdly, Israel isn’t helping itself, who for the most part reject that Jesus Christ was their promised Messiah. And that first century blunder, catastrophically, has tossed the global community in two centuries of chaos. Promising this future that it’ll get worse!

Readers should recall that God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, Genesis 32:28. The name change from Jacob to Israel was like Jacob being reborn. Because Israel became a prince, a reference to royalty, as Jesus is known as the ‘Prince of Peace,” Isaiah 9:6.

Note this carefully: Peace is a gift from God, and peace is a particular indicator, for individuals as well as nations.

Because a peace less individual, or nation, suggests a condition of separation between themselves and God. Which at best spells complicated stress, and at its worse, aggravated misery.

Jesus said, “Peace I give to you, My peace, I give unto you; not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.,” John 14:27.

That is what God offered the modern world through Israel (Jacob) from the many yesterdays, and reaching us by His mercy today. Such a gift is one of the greatest  gifts God offers to individuals and nations. Claim that gift for yourself and your nation.

And this is why God is upset with Israel the nation, Ephraim, Great Britain, and Manasseh the United States. Those nations have walked away from the heritage God promised.

And, GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED! Great honor God bestowed upon those nations through Jacob. For God declared, “… have power (authority) with God and humanity. You have prevailed,” Genesis 32:28. Then Jacob passed those birthrights through his name of Jacob, or now Israel, to Ephraim and Manasseh.

Received by the ancestors of Ephraim and Manasseh by the peoples of Great Britain and the United States, Genesis 48:16.

You should also note that our linage is also associated with Abraham and Isaac. Which helps explain the closeness of these three nations and our respective peoples.

So now you know how self destruction works for individuals and nations. Walk away from God, and He will walk away from you. Such a simple truth covering the pages of our sacred scriptures. With the outcome visible upon the theater of the global community.

tough old guy-get it together-know about tomorrow

Jacob a history maker in his own right brought his sons together saying some things that were designed to reach Americans today.

Joe Biden, who would became the nations 46th president centuries later. And in so becoming, Biden would be the recipient that Jacobian declaration, as where all the other presidents who preceded him. “Gather that I may tell what shall befall you in the last days.”

So President Biden from the ancient of times became destined to be a unique history maker. Because only forty five men have preceded him.

Each in their own ways filled, as is Biden, filling the pages of tomorrows history books with a history different from other world leaders.

In a very real sense President Biden’s presidency will bring fulfillment of that gathering centuries ago, to a closer fulfillment than his predecessors. As we move into the catastrophic events of those last days. And the same will apply, if there is a future beyond President Biden’s tenure.

A lot of what we know about today’s world occurred because of a man of God named Jacob. Who blessed his son Joseph and his grandsons Ephraim and Manasseh.

So it is time to take a look at Jacob’s son Joseph and his grandsons. Who together to set the course of history for centuries, but whose history is understood by few. With that history unfolding upon the world stage today.

In Genesis 49:1-33, a chapter worthy of your study because this discussion will discuss just a few verses. In verse one, Jacob, whom we now know as Israel, from Genesis 32:28, gathers his family together for a meeting. And he declares, “… gather that I may tell you that which will befall you in the last days,” Genesis 49:1.

Jacob said, that Joseph would be a fruitful vine whose branches will run over the wall. A fruitful vine by a spring. His branches run over the wall, Genesis 49:22.

That verse suggest that Joseph’s sons Ephraim and Manasseh, who were endowed with the birth rights of Israel from Genesis 32:28. With the two brothers becoming the benefactors of his inheritance.

For they would grow into a multitude of people in the midst of the earth, Genesis 48:16. And from their presence, among the people of Jacob, now Israel, announces that Ephraim would become a “multitude of nations,” Genesis 48:19.

And from his ancestry, the British once bragged that the sun never set upon its empire.

With Manasseh also becoming a people who would also be great, Genesis 48:19.

Now as succinctly as possible, Genesis 49:22, meant unparalleled prosperity and power through every conceivable aspect imaginable.

Note the prevailing endurance of Almighty God to the everlasting hills. To the crown of Joseph because he as separated from his brethren. Set aside for greatness through his sons, Genesis 49:23-26.

Some time ago I was part of an audience listening to two Muslims discussing the profoundness of America.

“The most prosperous and free nation on the face of the earth,” one said. And the other agreed that America was also different, because people were encouraged, and allowed to practice their religious beliefs without persecutions. Adding that does not occur in Muslim nations.

Which is true, and in those nations non-Muslims can’t even become citizens. But than again, who in God’s world would want to be citizen in a Muslim nation? For such nations, and their people represent the hell of the bottomless pit.

More importantly, what these two Muslims were unwittingly doing was giving testimony to the greatness of the nations Judea-Christian heritage.

Which is summed up in these very profound and sacred words. “The blessings of your father have excelled the blessings of my ancestors. Up to the boundaries of the everlasting territories. They shall be on the head of Joseph, on the crown of the head of him, who was separate from his brothers,” Genesis 49:26.

That is the difference between America and the rest of the world. We are the benefactors of Joseph’s crown. It used to be silliness to think otherwise but today it’s silly to think that.

It has given way to the ingenuity of man, and now the everlasting hills are being leveled. Buried on top of Joseph’s crown with the nation paying the price, but with few understanding why, but now you do.

Indeed a fruitful vine whose branches ran  over the wall. That fruitful vine a spring. Whose branches run over the wall, Genesis 49:22. With that verse suggesting that Joseph’s sons Ephraim and Manasseh. Who where endowed with the birth rights of Israel, Genesis 32:28.

Both of whom would grow into a multitude of people in the midst of the earth, Genesis 48:16. Which led Jacob or Israel, to announce that Ephraim (the younger brother) would become a “multitude of nations,” Genesis 48:19. And from his seed the British once bragged that the sun never set upon its empire.

But Jacob also announced that (the elder brother) Manasseh would “become a people and would also be great,” Genesis 48:19.

But before moving on, a little back tracking to Genesis 49:22. What verse 22 announces is the following. Through the ancestry of Jacob, a prince for and by God. Who was endowed with the power of God, and through God, would experience prevailing authority over humanity, Genesis 32:28.

Then Jacob traces his own ancestry to Abraham and Isaac, who would grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth, Genesis 48:16. And with a few words, we have the configuration of two great peoples and three great nations. The Jews, and the English speaking people, who would in history become the nations of Israel, Great Britain and the United States.

And through Abraham would come the the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, who has come and gone. But will return eventually, and establish His Kingdom, and rule from Jerusalem.

This readers is complicated and powerful material. So that the reader will be able to expand its contents beyond this discussion.

Because this padre has only scratched the surface. Because, 1 Corinthians 14:3, reports, He (Jacob) who prophesies speaks to humanity for edification, exhortation and comfort.

Be mindful that there is no need for prophets today. Because the prophetic world has been unveiled to us through the ancients like Jacob.

Our job is to assemble their prophesies, as they are applicable to what will befall us in the last days. Resulting in a prophetic unveiling of edification, exhortation and comfort.

Omens of history spells of destiny

It should be considered a good omen that history has a tendency to repeat itself through out the centuries. No doubt the wise learn from such historical events. But the wise seem to be very few along the historical trail. Allowing the few, who have learned to avoid replication of historical errors. By perpetuating their wisdom from generation to generation.

Some centuries ago, the Psalmist observed a particular trait in human behavior. That no amount of suffering can cure. It just seems that humanity can not benefit from the historical record. Generations of people turn into centuries of history. With each generation through out the centuries repeating the same mistakes. It is a particular characteristic about our species individually and collectively as nations of people. We have an innate tendency to defy God. The historical record is clear about the consequences of such behavior but it does not matter.

That prompted the Psalmist to raise the following question. “Why do the nations rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?” Psalm 2:1. Worse yet is the constant historical behavior of governments. With each in their own way legislating edicts contrary to the simple plan of God Almighty. In very simple language the Psalmist painted the truth in this manner. “The Kings (governments) of the earth set themselves above everything and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD, and against His anointed. Saying, let us break their bands asunder and cast their cords from us,” Psalms 2:2-3.

There are two basic paths to choose from. Either the people will submit to the rule of nations, who want nothing to do with God. Determined to break the peoples reliance upon God. Casting their dependence on God as worn out rope. In The United States this is done in subtle ways. As opposed to outright declarations by some nations. The end result is the same whether in America or countless other nations.

The other path is for the people to side with God and practice the theology as outlined in the scriptures. Which means an existences of abuse from government authorities because the two kingdoms can not exist together.

People of God, are directed by God, to be separate from secularism, note, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Psalms 139:19-22. The duty is to force integrity and moral values into our secular state at all levels of government. The church should be about the business of the church, as exemplified by Jesus Christ. Who was murdered for His opposition to secular governments and religious fraud.

There is a another simple truth to be learned from the historical record. In the end Godlessness among the nations will have this sad conclusion. “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh. The Lord shall have them in derision,” Psalms 2:3. Such history has repeated itself countless numbers of times. But God should not be seen as being cynical over the fate of the nations. The choice is there to be selected and followed. Rejection of God’s edicts has its consequences. But in the meantime, it is our modern day duty, as Christians to provide governments everywhere with every opportunity to escape God’s derision. It is called preaching the everlasting gospel to the four corners of the earth, Revelation 14:6. Perhaps God’s derision is some how connected to 2 Chronicles 36:16. Which reads, “But they mocked the messengers of God; and despised His words, and misused His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against the people, till there was no remedy.”

Why Muslims respect Jesus

America is in turmoil because the electorate has allowed Wall Street to select its candidates. Which allows the electorate a limited choice; not of their choosing, when deciding, who will occupy the Peoples House, the representatives serving in the Congress. And thus, which candidates will be confirmed as Supreme Court justices. Which has brought about a complete desecration of the American way by corporate conglomerates. Which had been, a reliance on divine providence in determining the affairs of state. Today that’s a laughable notion, and America is ceasing to be the land of milk and honey. A biblical expression for superiority in the affairs of state, when the state honors God. Blinded politicians have painted such truths white, the color of surrender. For the sake of political correctness, and social inclusiveness of the people regardless of race, ethnicity or religion. Unless the aforementioned is corrected; Americans will have a new master, and that master will be Islam.

When former Iranian head of state, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, of the Islamic Republic of Iran visited Columbia University in January 2008. He lectured a group of academics at Columbia University. Significant rhetoric fell from the speakers mouth. That rhetoric needs to be understood. His lecture was a prayer, or an announcement concerning the capture of the world by Muslims. On American soil; and totally missed by the university academics, the U.S. media, and our American government. And worse of all, many who make up the body of believers, who represent the Church of Jesus Christ. The nations only solution for a return to the days power, influence prosperity of its yesterdays.

Here is his prayer or announcement of world capitulation to Islam. “In the name of God, the compassionate, merciful, oh, God, hasten the arrival of Imam al-Mahdi, and grant him good health, and victory, and make us his followers, and those to attest to his rightfulness.” Note: and those to attest to his rightfulness. Ahmadinejad is referring to us infidels converting to Islam.

The following will explain who Imam al-Mahdi is, and his role on the world stage.

At a future time, maybe soon, as some think. Imam al-Mahdi will appear on the world scene. Al-Mahdi, meaning the rightly guided one. He will be a man who practices true Islam. He will not be a prophet. Just a ordinary guy. Maybe your Muslim neighbor.

It is thought that this rightly guided one will reign from the capital city of Syria which is Damascus. Many consider Damascus, the worlds oldest city. Often the center of world conflict, as it is today.

It is said by Muslims, that Jews will be the invincible power on the world scene. This will occur two times. This revelation comes directly from Allah. The Mahdi will make his appearance on the world stage sometime between those two periods.

During this period there will a horrific battle. Muslims, and Christians, both accept this horrific war known as “Armageddon.” Armageddon is defined as the decisive catastrophic battle that brings an end to the known world. The problem though is that each religion sees itself as the victor. Muslims believe that they can prepare the proper conditions for the guided ones return. That is what makes the Islamic community so dangerous. Even your Muslim neighbor in the good old U.S.A. To what extent will they go once motivated by a diabolic messenger.

It is that predatory beast that John saw. Who looked, and acted like a leopard guided by the dragon of Revelation chapter 13. Yes, I am suggesting that the guided one, Imam al-Mahdi could very well be the leopard of Revelation 13. We have no way of knowing this with absolute certainty. But the Muslim guided one, meets the characteristics of evil described in chapter thirteen.

Muslims everywhere are dangerous because their purpose is to revolutionize the world. Forcing the world community to conform to the teachings of the Qur’an. Including all governments, meaning only Islamic regimes will govern. Pluralism in any society to devout Muslims is behavioral decadency. They have no respect, or tolerance for governments that are not governed by Islamic law. If necessary to achieve this end, and as we all know, they will resort to violence. Nor, do they hesitate to extract violence against those whose social customs are opposed to the teaching of the Qur’an.

Christians believe only God the Father knows the time when Christ  will return. Therefore, Christians will defend Jerusalem with Israel against Islamic nations. Muslims believe they must control Jerusalem in order for the guided one to return. There can be no negotiated settlement for control of Jerusalem. That is what the war of all wars is about and it is underway right now. What the world can expect, is for conditions in the region to intensify. With repercussions boomer ranging around the world. No peoples will be spared, and global economies will be devastated by having to contend with this Islamic menace. A religion that knows nothing about decency, therefore, erasing civility as a noble human experience.

Muslims believe this war for will last six years but ultimately Islam prevails. Capturing the seat of Christianity, Vatican City, or the capital city of the United States. It could be any great city of importance to the infidels. Like the United Nations headquarters in New York City. Arguments can be made for the capture of any one of these cities. Because each in there own, way has protected Israel. Housing a people that Muslims assert have no right to exist.

Sometime in the seventh year a influential and charismatic figure will appear on the world stage. Possessing extraordinary powers of persuasion with the ability to communicate in many languages. Creating a formidable challenge to Islamic rule. Which results in another war, this war is between the Jews and Muslims. This war is so violent. It goes beyond any kind of destruction the world has ever experienced. To the very elimination of all life forms on the planet. Fitting nicely into John seeing the beast wounded almost to death. Then making a remarkable recovery. Causing the world to marvel at its resiliency, and declaring, who can successfully war against the beast, Revelation 13:3-5.

Suddenly, and unexpectedly, Jesus returns as promised. Praying, and walking behind Imam Mahdi. Christ will pursue and kill the Antichrist. He will destroy the armies of Gog and Magog (for a later discussion). Armies that have rejected, and fought against the children of Allah. Muslims then kill all Jews, and other infidels. The surviving people see this, and convert to Islam. Islam then rules the world with harmony and peace prevails globally.

Qur’an 43:61, The (Qur’an) gives knowledge of the Hour; do not doubt it. Follow Me for this the right path. And, that path is world dominance!

Times have changed and are far more complex than those of the past. Old conflicts were based upon struggles over political ideologies. Conflicts over the supremacy of Capitalism verses Communism. Democracies verses totalitarian governments. The United States and its pathetic government isn’t remotely close to understanding today’s world realities.

This era of ours features the struggle for the accepting or the rejection of Islamic religious supremacy. Muslims have foot soldiers all over the globe, including in the United States. Anxious to be apart of the Islamic call found in their war manual at 43:61.

Perhaps, the most powerful weapon that Islam has at its disposal. Is a weapon that rocks the civilized world into deep slumber. Including far to many Christians which is their respect for Jesus. Ask any devout Muslim, if they accept Jesus as the Messiah. The answer is always yes, followed by peace be unto him. People who should know better, including Christians, walk away thinking Muslims mean us no harm. For Muslims, Jesus is instrumental in the conversions of Christians to Islam. That is the only reason Muslim’s give respect to Jesus.

Enemy at the door step of America. Time to act out violently in a nonviolent way. Learn the way and the tactics for the asking. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

hunger disease & unusual weather patterns

What do they have in common, hunger, disease and unusual weather patterns? They are the forerunners of a time declared to be a time like no other since the beginning of the world and never again to be duplicated, Matthew 24:7,21.

Diseases, and unusual weather patterns are more readily observable and certainly contributory factors to hunger. So for now, a short discussion on hunger and its causes but not absent a solution.

Each year more working Americans are, “food insecure,” meaning they do not know where they will find their next meal. This according to the nations largest food bank, America’s Second Harvest. America’s Second Harvest asserts that food insecurity is experienced by 70% of their clients. Thirty three percent of these people are completely without a food source.

America’s Second Harvest is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. They also have offices in the nations capital. They serve as a food distribution center for the nations soup kitchen’s, food banks, and shelters for the homeless. They assist thousands of such organizations across the country. They have provided assistance for a shocking twenty five million people in one calendar year.

One might wonder, just who do they represent? Perhaps concluding that these are people suffering from some form of substance abuse. Maybe a collection of people just to lazy to work? The kind of people that makes it easy for people to ignore. Easy for society to shrug of there needs by concluding that they are getting what they deserve.

Good, and decent people are all around us, who are barely making it from one meal to the next. Discussing hunger, I talked with a woman, who had attempted to organize a more active Parent Teachers Association at her child’s school. She said, that she could not get these Mom’s and Dad’s to be active P.T.A. participants. Because she said, they work two or more jobs so that the family can have food.

People of a Christian consciousness should avoid such attitudes. We are instructed to practice a religion that is undefiled which is to serve people without respect to their afflictions, James 1:27.

It is one way to separate ones self from a score of behaviors not favored by Christ. It’s what James meant when he wrote be “unstained by the world.”

Who are these people? Most likely some are people suffering from unproductive behaviors but certainly not all of them. Nevertheless it is clear that we have a duty to help these people.

But according to the organizations vice president many of these people are our neighbors. They work at jobs that do not pay them enough money to make ends meet. So, they sacrifice food.

Another group served is the nations senior citizens. Again people, who had worked all their lives. But find themselves, without sufficient money for food.

Most unfortunately, included among the hungry are the nations children. No child, for whatever reason should go hungry! America’s Second Harvest reports that about 36% of the people helped came from families in which at least one person was employed.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported nearly 12% or 13.5 million American households had difficulty providing enough food for their families. The agency reports that the number keeps increasing annually.

Two reasons exist for this possibility, one is found in 2 Chronicles 36:16 and the other is found in Hosea 5:4. First, “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised His words, and misused His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy.”

Hosea declares, “They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God; for the spirit of harlotry (unacceptable behaviors) is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.”

The only hope for a troubled America, which has angered the wrath of God because as a people and a nation, America refuses to frame all behaviors according to the edicts of the LORD.

Perhaps God will declare that he has found a Noah. A man who had found grace in his eyes. A just man, perfect in his generation, and he walked with God, Genesis 6:8-9.

A necessary occurrence because God told Noah, “The end of all humanity is before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them from the earth,” Genesis 6:13.

With God declaring that a global flood would destroy all of humanity and everything would die, Genesis 6:17.

But God values righteousness, so He spared Noah by instructing him to built an ark, Genesis 6:14,18-22. And in the end, God said to Noah and his sons, after blessing them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth,” Genesis 9:1.

And we know from a previous discussion, “Mind Shifting a Supernatural Art,” 11 August 2019 that the settled can be altered by His grace because righteousness has come before him. So be it in our time, let us pray.

This Padre duly ordained, and also having a degree in political is available to address the broad spectrum of organized secular groups within our communities. Right through to the many denominational churches doting the American landscape.

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 of 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. Where 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 dying 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 Him.

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 some conclude life’s long journey is about over, but for that final breath. 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 (body) 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 of their lives and 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 Matthew 6:10. We are to ask Jesus, for our “daily Bread,” Matthew 6:11. While all of these verses deserve more commentary. The key here is found in Matthew 6:8, “… for your Father knows what things we are in need of before we ask him,” In Matthew 6:12,  we are told to ask for forgiveness of our debts (sins). 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 combine those attributes are examples of what it means to be a Christian. Jesus then by His innateness, and His, authority refers to us the children of God, John 1:12-13.

Failure to experience the aforementioned is the most egregious mistake of humanity. Because it leads humanity to someday, to be permanently separated, from any future after death relationship with Christ, See John 3:3.

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.

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. Ring a bell?

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. Nor our modern world, but despite that, it’s on display globally.

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.

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 ago 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 those 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.
