July 30. 2013
Is the American government turning toward socialism? … Are the ‘powers that be’ taking us in that direction? …. This is a much-debated subject matter going on in many circles today. … I know in my Tuesday night end-times gathering, the topic comes up quite often, primarily because of many of the news headlines we are looking at. …. 
One of the areas most noticeable is today’s media. … All but a few are totally ‘left-leaning’ and many important stories taking place all around us go completely unnoticed … stories concerning homosexuality, abortion, certain court trials that involve topics favoring the liberal agenda …..  
As most of you are aware, I peruse the news headlines every day looking for stories that relate to issues facing our Christian community in these end times, and believe me when I say this, hardly a day goes by that I DON’T find something that relates to our government’s continuing move toward socialism, and an eventual complete takeover of our once-strong and vital way of life ………. but this article  from this morning triggered my wanting to write about this right now …. A ‘World Net Daily’ headline said this … “Broadcast giant ‘dropping Limbaugh, Hannity’ ” …. Now while I realize these guys are secular, and will find other outlets … while they still exist … the point is this:  I believe it to be a clandestine effort by those in power to remove the conservative voice from the airwaves so as to accelerate their complete takeover of our media.
Those of you who have studied History 101 know that this is how dictators of the past took control of their respective societies. … If you can control the information being ‘fed’ to the public … if you can control the school curriculum and feed them what you want them to learn … if the universities stay at their current ‘liberal’ level … then it will be just a brief period of time before they will have complete control of it all. … 
Let’s also consider the economy for a moment … In just two articles this week, we see clear signs of what I’m talking about. … First this article from CNS News  … “Two Americans added to Food Stamp rolls for every job Administration says it created.” …. The next one from The Blaze reported … “4 in 5 in U.S. face near-poverty — no work.” … (that’s 80%, people!) …. To complete this point, let me say that over 50% of America’s population is on the government dole … and who do you think people will vote for? … Anyone & everyone that will continue to send the money! … They now have the majority!
And what about the ‘Moral Compass’ … the ‘Faith Factor?’ … We know also from studying the same history previously mentioned that any socialistic-communistic society is all but devoid of God. … Well?! … Almost every day I come across story after story about how God is being literally removed from our society …. He’s not allowed in our governing halls, our educational systems, our military ….
… not anywhere! … When we talk about “Separation of Church and State” … we mean it literally in today’s America. ….. And all we have to do is just ‘glance’ at the results of this …. rampant crime & killing in our cities, militant homosexuality, the killing of millions of babies …. the list goes on, and is growing by leaps & bounds every moment of each day!
Now for you ‘scoffers’ who think I’m over-reacting, or am just simply another ‘nut-case, let me share with you this story that will make even the most avid ‘doubter’ think …. In June of this year, we learned that the National Security Agency (NSA) has a secret data warehouse in Utah, a ‘billion-dollar epicenter’ where it can store massive amounts of information.  .. And the phone records, e-mails, and other digital communications the government has been tracking include YOURS! …… Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, YouTube, AOL, Skype, and Apple have handed over all kinds of information about you, and claimed that they were forced to do so. .. The Associated Press reported that this revelation “illustrates how aggressively personal information is being congregated and analyzed …” 
However, the NSA says you don’t have to worry.  An agency spokesman said that its operations will be lawfully conducted in accordance with U.S. laws and policies.” …. I feel so much better! … Does it reassure you? … Has the Administration done anything lately to suggest that it is careful to follow the law?
When a ceremony was held in May to celebrate completion of the Utah data center’s exterior, it was “closed to the public” … only an exclusive invitation would get you in … even the Mayor of host city Bluffdale was excluded. … The AP story went on tosay that the NSA also rejected a request by city officials to take a group of visiting Utah mayors on a bus tour of the outside of the facility.  The agency said all tours — even of the exterior — are prohibited. 
Why all the secrecy? … Washington claims it needs all this information for America’s war against terrorism. .. It is expanding the NSA’s powers exponentially using the ‘war on terrorism’ as the rationale.
… Now what makes this so interesting is that at the same time, the President gave a speech telling us that ‘there is no war on terrorism’ … “This war, like all wars, must end,” he said. … “America shouldn’t be on a perpetual war-time footing.” … He claimed that the war is winding down, thanks to several victories by his administration. …… So if all this is true, why do we need this billion dollar facility in Utah?! …. It’s all about control!
Romans 16:17-18 says this …. “I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned.  Keep away from them. 18) For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites.  By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.”
… And this is exactly what is happening. … We Disciples of Christ know that these days will be very difficult for us, and will continue to get worse as we go forward. ……. So how can we ‘stay away’ from those who govern us? … We can’t really, but Jesus taught us how we are to exist in this world ….   In John 17:14-16, Jesus was praying to the Father and He said this …. “I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15) My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.”
OK … So as always, Jesus was .. and is .. absolutely right. … The more time progresses, the more the world hates us, because we DO know His Word! … But remember this, Jesus also prayed that the Father protect us during these times of rejection. … We MUST trust in that. …
OK… it’s getting long so I’ll stop here for now … but rest assured, we will continue to talk about this stuff just as long as we can … and let’s remember to pray earnestly for each other … and never forget that the ultimate reward is spending eternity with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! … Hallelujah!!!
Until next time,

in Texas these days? … Just wait a few weeks, until the San Antonio
City Council ends its summer hiatus and resumes work on a proposed change
to its non-discrimination ordinances that apparently will discriminate
against all who take the Bible at its word and follow it. … That’s
because the change creates a penalty for those who ever exhibit a ‘bias’,
which clearly could include adopting the Bible’s condemnation of Homosexuality.”

… I, along with others, have been saying that
this was soon to be ‘the way of the land.’ … and, as my friend Victor
said, this particular situation is occurring in the Bible belt!  

*Fox News – “Liberal media love new Jesus book

…. How about this? … Their belief offends me
so why should all things be godless to please them?.. Just sayin’ …

*New American – “Evangelical Fuller Seminary
says ‘yes’ to homosexual campus club”

one of the top theological training centers in the world … and now

10 years now, and this is exactly why! … Why do we humans think we
can improve on God’s Word? … Come, Lord Jesus … and fix this mess!
….

Well, that’s it for this period. … I’m sure you
noticed this report covered a longer period … 9 days. … I’ve finally
learned how to podcast without my producer sitting right next to me
… I’m a ‘dinosaur’ if you must know. … Anyway, I want to get to
where we have the commentary coming out on Tuesdays, and the news headlines
on late Friday or early saturday … just please be patient with me.
… We’ll get it all figured out soon!

Still a lot of news volume, especially for the summer
months. … Normally it really slows down during the ‘dog days’ of summer,
but not so much this year. … The one thing that has tapered a bit
is the economic news … but trust me when I say … it will be back
with a vengeance just as soon as our ‘illustrious rulers’ return from
their respective holidays … but soon they will swarm back to their
lofty abodes and once again screw up pretty much everything they touch
…. Should get really interesting here in a few weeks …

In the meantime, I want to thank you all for your
continued support of our site. … We had more ‘hits’ this past week
than we’ve had in quite some time … unusual considering the time of
year … and as for getting the podcasting on your I-pads & I-phones,
it looks to be just around the corner.

Pray for us as we are constantly praying for each
of you. … May God richly bless you and keep you safe in these perilous
times …

Until next time.

July 23, 2013

In just this week’s news, we saw several of these
types of articles …. “‘Christians fleeing in Egypt for fear of
reprisals”  … “Dozens of Christians killed in Nigeria”
… “8 Christians imprisoned in Iran over issues of ‘National Security’
” … The stories keep mounting up week after week, and in every
case, the persecution was, and is perpetrated by Muslims.

In the World Net Daily story concerning the 8 Christians
who were jailed in Iran, my comment was this …. 
“Can this kind of thing ‘come to pass’ here
in America? .. Can we outspoken Christians become the targets of this
rapidly radicalizing government we are now living under?” 
… Let’s take a look …

First, let’s view this eye-opening piece sent to
me by a Christian brother …

   *In 1952, President Truman established
one day a year as a “National Day of Prayer” …
   *In 1988, President Reagan designated
the First Day of May of each year as the “National Day of Prayer”
   *In 2007, then presidential candidate
Barak Obama declared that the USA “was no longer a Christian Nation
   *This year, President Obama canceled
the 21st annual “National Day of Prayer” ceremony at the White
     House under the ruse of
“not wanting to offend anyone.”
   *But, on September 25, 2009, from 4
AM until 7 PM, a “National Day of Prayer” for the Muslim religion
was  
     held on Capitol Hill, beside
the White House.

Now while we ‘digest’ this startling story, let’s
also consider these facts … Look who’s new in the White House?

   *Arif Alikhan – Asst. Secretary for
Policy Development for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security …
   *Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security
Advisor …
   *Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to
the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) …
   *Salam al-Marayati – Obama Advisor
– founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current Executive
     Director …
   *Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia
Czar – Islamic Society of North America …
   *Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based
Neighborhood Partnerships …

Now this is flat-out scary stuff! … The ‘foxes’
are now living in the hen house ……. and I wonder how many of us
were, or are really aware of this happening right under our noses!

For quite some time now, I’ve been listening to
the debate about Islam … that just a tiny few are fanatics, while
the rest … the vast majority … are moderate and peace-loving. …
Well quite frankly, I’m sick of these lies! … There comes a time when
this ‘spiritual fog’ … this religious deception … must be removed
by a clear and unbiased pursuit of the truth! … To say it as plainly
as I can, devout Muslims believe that killing Americans and Jews is
the will of Muhammad the Prophet … and the will of their god, called
Allah. … Islam not only condones violence, it COMMANDS it!

The Quran (their bible) teaches this … “Fight
and slay the pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer
them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).” 
Surah 9:5 …. another example … “The punishment of those who
wage war against Allah and his Messenger, and strive with might and
main for mischief through the land is: Execution. or crucifixion, or
the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from
the land:  That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment
is theirs in the hereafter.”  Surah 5:33 ……

Continuing on with more proof … Iran’s Ayatollahs
have declared:  “The purest joy in Islam is to ‘kill and be
killed’ for Allah.” ….. In a brief glance at history, Muhammad,
the founder of Islam, slaughtered thousands of people in establishing
and spreading Islam. … He told his followers:  “Who relinguishes
his faith, kill him.  I have been ordered by Allah to fight with
people till they testify there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is
his messenger.”

Simply put, Islamic terrorists are NOT fanatics
… but devout followers of Muhammad who are following his example by
doing what their Islamic Quran teaches them to do! … Our media and
politicians love to single out the ‘fanaticism’ of a few, but the bottom
line truth is this … They are following the teachings of their god.
… If they are not living as ‘fanatics,’ they are considered apostate
and doomed to destruction!

To sum up, Muslims believe that the prophet Muhammad
taught absolute truth … that it is god’s (Allah) will for them to
rule the earth. .. Therefore, if Islam does not defeat Israel, the little
satan … and America, the great satan … then Muhammad and the Quran
are wrong! … and that is absolutely UNTHINKABLE!  …and as for
Christians? … Islam teaches that Muhammad superseded the Patriarchs
and Christ Himself. … and contrary to Christ’s teachings, Islam does
Not teach peace, but submission.

A final note on Islam in America … Historian Daniel
Pipes, writing for Commentary Magazine recorded the following shocking
evidence concerning the true Islamist’s loyalty to America. … In June,
1991, a convert to Islam, Siraj Wahaj, a recipient of the American Muslim
community’s highest honors, had the privilege of becoming the first
Muslim to deliver the daily prayer in the U.S. House of Representatives.
… On that occasion, he recited from the Quran and appealed to the
Almighty to guide the American leaders and to “grant them 
righteousness and wisdom.”

But the story did not end there. … A little over
a year later this same Muslim, addressing an audience of New Jersey
Muslims, articulated a completely different message from his ‘mild and
moderate’ prayer given before the U.S. House of Representatives. …
He said, “If only Muslims were more clever politically, they could
take over the United States and replace its constitutional government
with a Caliphate (Islamic leadership body).” He concluded with
these remarks,  “If we were united and strong, we would elect
our own leader and give allegiance to him. … Take my word, if six
or eight million Muslims in America unite, the country will come to
us.”

Know this … the Muslim religion is the fastest
growing religion per capita in the U.S. today, especially in the minority
races. … In just a few years, there will be enough Muslim voters to
elect a president…. and the way our current one is helping and reaching
out to this community, it only increases the odds! …

What was the first thing Jesus told His disciples
when they asked Him what the signs would be concerning the last days?
…. The first thing out of His mouth was this … “Watch out that
no one deceives you.” ….   (Matthew 24:4) … There
are many forms of deception taking place all around us today, and Islam
certainly is one of the BIG ones. … Let us not be deceived by these
Muslim lies, or any other for that matter. …  and what should
we be doing? … praying for not only our brothers & sisters in
Christ, but also for those who have fallen under the spiritual deception
of the father of lies … satan!

Know that I am praying for each of you, and our
true God knows exactly who you are …. Hallelujah!

Until next time,
