Monthly Archives: April 2014

April 8, 2014

In last week’s news, I ran across an
article from the Wall Street Journal that I promised to elaborate on this week
… so here it is. … First, the article said this … “Obamacare: A
disaster like no other” —  Then the
following comments … “7.1 million have signed up — but 6 million lost
their coverage and were forced onto the exchanges. ..
That’s no triumph — that’s manipulation!”
…. and another … “I don’t know why we’re not having a
revolution!”
Now, at about the same time this article
hit, a Christian sister handed me this very interesting piece, which explains
much of what is taking place right now in our country, and certainly puts some
light on the ‘Journal’ story I just shared with you …. Here it is ….
“Who was Saul Alinsky? ….. Recall
that Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on his writings and Barak Hussein
Obama writes about him in his books. …..
“Saul Alinsky died about 42 years
ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation
today. … Who was he? … He was a writer and an American community organizer.
.. He is generally considered to be the Communist radical, socialist founder of
the modern community organizing movement. .. He is most noted for his book
‘Rules for Radicals’ … His other book was entitled ‘Reveille for Radicals’
“Anyone out there think that this
stuff isn’t happening  today in the U.S.?
… In case you hadn’t noticed, all eight rules are currently in play. .. Can
we turn around eight socialist Communist state agendas that have been
insidiously injected into our culture? … Here they are ….
“How to create a Communist socialist
state by Saul Alinsky:
   1) Healthcare:  Control healthcare and you control the
people.
  
2) Poverty:  Increase the poverty
level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight
       
back if you are providing everything for them to live.
  
3) Debt:  Increase the debt to an
unsustainable level. .. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will
produce more poverty.
  
4)  Gun Control:  Remove the ability to defend themselves from
the government.  That way you are able to
create 
        
a police state.
  
5) Welfare:  Take control of every
aspect of their lives (food, housing, and income).
  
6)  Education:  Take control of what people read and listen
to. .. Take control of what children learn in school.
  
7)  Religion:  Remove the belief in God from the government
and schools.
  
8)  Class Warfare:  Divide the people into the wealthy and the
poor. .. This will cause more discontent and it will 
        
be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
“Does any of this sound like what is
happening to the United States? .. It should! .. It is the method of operation
of those in power today. …. Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s
original scheme for world conquest by Communism, under Russian rule. .. Stalin
described his converts as ‘useful idiots.’ .. The Useful Idiots have destroyed
every nation in which they have seized power and control. .. It is presently
happening at an alarming rate in the U.S. .. It may be too late to reverse the
decline.”
To be honest, I don’t know who the actual
author of this article is, but it IS amazing as to how these eight mentioned
items are taking place in our nation today. … One has to admit that there has
been an amazing change in our society since this ‘mentality’ came to power …
and sadly, at least right now, the heir-apparent, Hillary Clinton, seems to be
the front-runner in all the polls.
So why do I bring this to you, and how
does it fit into the overall prophetic picture? … Those who are aware of my
thinking know that I am not political. .. Do be so impairs one’s ability to
view Biblical teachings with ‘clear eyes.’ .. This is what I believe. … A
world government is coming, and is ‘just around the corner.’  … In order for that to be possible, there
can be NO super-power on the world scene. … As America fades ‘back into the
pack’ of nations, and the economic conditions continue to deteriorate, the
opportunity for a new world leader will be greatly enhanced … one who will
step forward and appear to have all the answers for a world that has fallen
into complete and utter despair. … An existing super-power would not let this
happen. …..
Look at some other thoughts for a moment.
… Five years after the close of World War ll, Winston Churchill declared in a
speech in Copenhagen,  “Unless some
effective world super-government can be brought quickly into action, the
proposals for peace and human progress are dark and doubtful.” ….. In
the early 1960s, noted nuclear physicist Edward Teller, who helped develop the
hydrogen bomb, warned,  “We must
work for the establishment of a world authority sustained by moral and physical
force – a world government capable of enforcing worldwide law.”
Since then, an unprecedented number of
international and regional bodies of all shapes and sizes – political and
financial institutions, aid organizations, non-government organizations,
judicial institutions – have emerged to play a role in global affairs. .. Today
we have the Nuclear Energy Agency, the World Bank, the International Monetary
Fund, the International Chamber of Commerce, the G-8 and G-20, the
Commonwealth, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Council of Europe,
Greenpeace, Freedom House, Amnesty International, and the list goes on and on
…….
And of course, we have the United
Nations. .. Despite its 60-year track record of malfunction and failure, the UN
Commission on Global Governance in 1995 recommended far-reaching changes for
the UN, including a system of global taxation, a standing UN army, an
international criminal court, expanded authority for the secretary-general, and
the formation of a world parliament, among other things. …… So far, only
the court has been created – 1998. …. But take the super-power out of the
way? ………..
After World War ll, the call went out
from many highly esteemed people for a world government to be set up to solve
mankind’s problems. .. Serious-minded scientists and world leaders know that
the solution to the world’s ills and the establishment of world peace is
possible ONLY if all nations are brought together under a supreme,
all-powerful, world-ruling government! ….
Do we see and hear this mentality coming
from our current  leaders? … You bet we
do! .. I’ve been following this stuff for a long time now, and I have never
heard the words ‘Globalism’ & ‘International Unity’ as much as in just the
past couple of years. … Hating to put myself in the position of being
considered a ‘conspiracy theorist.’  it
seems our current leadership is somehow a huge part of this mentality! … 
It’s painful to watch someone you love
dying of a terminal illness. .. The same must be said of seeing a  country you love die. .. America suffers with
several ills from which it will not recover. .. This reality is becoming
inescapably clear. .. Is there hope? .. Is there a bright and shining future
lying just over the horizon? .. Only God knows the answer to that question, but
it is most certainly not to be found in any of the methods that are currently
being attempted right now. … 
The moral foundations America once
embraced have largely disappeared. .. The blessings America once enjoyed have
been wasted. .. America’s military dominance is proving inadequate. .. Its wars
are proving impossible. .. Our allies are fleeing us. .. Our enemies are
provoking us! … And then there’s the epic debt we owe to China. .. Our
economy is in shambles with no solutions in sight. .. Despite growing
unemployment, despite ruinous private and public debt, despite whole states
risking bankruptcy, despite the federal government paying its bills with
nothing but printed paper, Americans keeps spending like the good times will
roll on forever. .. As one commentator said, “Frugality, thrift,
moderation, self-control, self-suffiency – it seems such perennially American
virtues are permanently lost, buried by rank materialism and excess.”
Looking at all this, one can’t help but
sigh and cry — as the prophet Isaiah did in his chapter 1:4-6,  “Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with
guilt, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption!  They have forsaken the Lord, they have
spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on Him.  Why should you be beaten anymore?  Why do you persist in rebellion?  Your whole head is injured, your whole heart
afflicted.  From the soles of your foot
to the top of your head there is no soundness – only wounds and welts and open
sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with oil.”
There’s so much more, but this is enough
for now. ..I will continue to bring you as much information as I can get as we
go forward in these increasingly deteriorating times. .. But remember, our hope
can be placed in only ONE place, and that is in the saving grace of our Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ. … He is coming back soon .. and when He does, He
will show mankind a government that WILL work … one that will prevail for
eternity! … Hallelujah!
Until next time,

‘Blood Moons’ discussion was ‘the most popular program of my 14 years on the
air.’ .. She went on to say ‘we shouldn’t ignore this phenomena … the Bible
tells us to look to the signs in the heavens and particularly in the last
days.’ … She finished by saying, ‘they could be significant to Israel in 2014
& 2015.’ …

April 1st, 2014
As each week passes, I rarely have
difficulty deciding what to write about because, as always, the Holy Spirit is
faithful to put on my heart what I need to be addressing. .. Well, this week
there are a whole bunch of thoughts, so I decided to wait on Him to sort it
out. … In the meantime, I’ve been wanting to share with all of you this
article I received from a Christian friend some time back. … It was written
by a 25-year head high school football coach by the name of Dave Daubenmire.
… The title .. “How Great is That Darkness” is his, and to honor
his work, I didn’t want to dilute it in any way. … Here is what he wrote back
in December of 2010 …….
  
“But if thine eye be evil, they whole body shall be full of
darkness.  If therefore the light that is
in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness” – Matthew 6:23
“Okay Lord, I’ll write it.  But I really don’t understand why you give me
these dirty jobs.  Why haven’t you
anointed me to write about the evil Democrats, or say, those God-haters who
want to take Manger scenes off of the courthouse steps?  Why can’t I be like Ann Coulter and just
expose liberals?  Why do I always have to
write things about folks who are supposed to be on my side?  The liberals hate me enough … why do I have
to keep poking ‘conservatives’ in the eye?
“It won’t be long before I won’t be
welcome anywhere in the Christian circles. 
But I promised you years ago that I would be faithful to write and speak
what you put in my spirit.  As President
John Adams famously said,  ‘Duty is ours.  The results belong to God.’
“So, I’ll lay it out there and trust
you have reason for putting the words in my heart.
“Most Christians are not.  Not really disciples of Jesus that is.  As I go about my work, I have become more
convinced of that truth.  The American
Experience is in trouble because those who claim to be followers of Jesus
really don’t follow Him.
“Oh, don’t get me wrong, they ‘go to
church,’ and most ‘believe in God,’ but they are not followers of Jesus.  They don’t even know what it means … to
follow Jesus … even though they are ‘Christians.’  In fact, I doubt whether the Apostle Paul, or
any of the first-century believers, would even recognize the ‘religion’ that we
call ‘Christianity’ today.  Just
wondering … was Jesus a ‘Christian?’ 
“Jesus hated religion.  It was the ‘religious’ folks He tried to free
us from.  ‘But woe unto you, scribes and
pharisees, hypocrites!  For ye shut up
the kingdom of heaven against men;  for
ye neither go yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.’
… Read Matthew 23 to understand what He had to say to ‘religious’
leaders.  He stated it better than I can.
“Look.  Christianity is not a religion, it is not
‘going to church,’ it is not a set op rules and regulations after which you
pattern your life, it is not a crutch for the weak, it is not an answer on the
U.S. Census, and it is not a home business designed to increase one’s earthly
possessions.
“Christianity is the life of Jesus
living through you.  It is an exchange of
your life for His, a living out of His nature instead of yours, a ‘putting on’
of the life of Jesus, not a process where you ‘accept’ Him, or ‘receive’ Him,
or ‘come’ to Him.  It is a death process
… a dying of you and your old nature … a transformation really … out of
an old life to a new one.  ‘Christ IN
you, the hope and glory.’
“Most folks who identify as Christians
claim to know Jesus as Savior.  Very few
know Him as Lord.
“That’s why Christianity is so
shallow in America.  We love the ‘Savior’
part of Jesus, but aren’t quite ready to bow to that Lord thingee.  Most are interested in having ‘their Savior’
bless their endeavors, but few are willing to ‘lay down their lives’ for Him.
“Everyone wants to follow Jesus
until they find out where He is going … He is heading to the Cross … and He
asks you to take up yours and follow Him. 
This flies in the face of popular Christianity and its ‘felt needs’ …
“The hearts of Americans are hard to
pierce.  Stephen called folks like us ‘Ye
stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy
Ghost:  as your father did, so do ye.’
“How did the religious folks receive
Stephen and his honest rebuke?  ‘Then
they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with
one accord, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him.’
“Here is what I am getting at. Most
‘Christians’ are not open to the true Gospel because they already think they
have it.  They have learned to
compartmentalize it, to compromise it, to hang it on the coat rack.  But they have heard a different Gospel.  They have been taught to follow Christianity,
not Jesus.
” ‘For there are certain men crept
in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men,
turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord
God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.’   …
Jude
“Do yourself a favor.  Take the time to read the Book of Acts.  It is a record of the ‘Gospel’ being lived
out by those who were most familiar with the Savior.  You will look long and hard, far and wide, to
find anything even remotely resembling the modern-day humanistic, self-serving,
Jesus-wants-me-to-be-happy-and-rich-Gospel belching out of the pulpits
today.  Would they invite Paul, the
greatest evangelist the world has ever known, to appear on TBN?  Would Rick Warren and Joel Osteen allow him to
stand in their pulpits?  Can you picture
him ‘dancing with the stars?’
“Americans are following a
‘different’ Gospel, which is ‘no Gospel at all.’
” ‘Because you sayest, I am rich,
and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;  and knowest not that thou art wretched, and
miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.’
“Permit me to state it more
succinctly so that there can be no misunderstanding of the point I am trying to
make.  Most church-goers are not
followers of Jesus Christ.  They are
merely members of a social club called ‘Christianity.’  ‘Membership has its advantages …’
“How do you heal someone who doesn’t
know he is sick?  How do you save someone
who doesn’t think he is lost?
” ‘If therefore the light that is in
thee be darkness, how great is that darkness …’
“Americanized Christianity has
everything backwards.  Somewhere along
the line the life-denying Gospel has morphed into a life-enhancement
Gospel.  Instead of us giving ourselves
for the advancement of the kingdom we have been fooled into believing that
Jesus gave Himself so we could be masters of our own kingdom.
“The idea of sacrifice and suffering
is anathema to modern, Americanized Christianity.  How else can you possibly explain the
calloused attitude that most ‘Christians’ have towards the ‘increase of his
government and peace.’
“Read Matthew 13.  It is here that we read of the wheat and the
tares which GROW UP TOGETHER.  That’s
right.  When you go to ‘church’ on Sunday
it would behoove you to look around . 
Many of those sitting beside you are destined for the bon-fire.  They look like Christians, they sing like
Christians, and they speak the Christian ‘language,’ but they are not children
of the Lord.
” ‘Many will say to me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? 
and in thy name cast out devils? 
and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never
knew you:  depart from me, ye that work
iniquity.’ – Matthew 7
“Could it be that many are getting
the wrong answer because they are being asked the wrong questions?  It is not ‘do you know Jesus,’ but rather,
‘does Jesus know you?’
“In recent polls 85% of all
Americans self-identify as Christians, yet this nation has become a moral
wasteland.  ‘Christians’ complain about
others ‘shoving Christianity down our throats.’ 
‘Christians’ declare that ‘religion’ is a ‘private matter’ while atheist
teachings swamp their children in ‘public schools.’  ‘Christians’ have abortions and vote for
‘pro-abortion’ candidates.  ‘Christians
embrace homosexuality.  ‘Christians’ fail
to keep their marriage vows. 
‘Christians’ ignore the precepts that Jesus taught.
“How do you rescue someone who
doesn’t think he needs rescued?  How do
you bring sight to one who thinks he sees? 
How do you bring knowledge to one who thinks he knows?  How do you bring truth to one who doesn’t
know he is deceived?  How do you bring
light to one who doesn’t know it is dark?
“America is the most ‘Gospelized’
nation in the world, but my dealings with Americanized ‘Christians’ have
convinced me that the greatest mission field in the world is inside the four
walls of most American churches.
“The darkness thinks it is light.
” ‘And the evil spirit answered and
said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know;  but
who are ye?’
” ‘Thou believest that there is one
God;  thou doest well: the devils also
believe, and tremble.’
“Most ‘Christians’ don’t know enough
about Jesus to tremble.
“How great is that darkness.”
Well said coach! …. So now, all of you
…. now that you have read coach Dave’s thoughts, it’s time to look at
yourself closely to see if even any of it fits you and your ‘walk’ with Jesus.
…. and be honest. … The consequences are too great .. and eternal .. to be
self-decieved ..      
Until next time,
