When There Was Silence In Heaven

 

SUN CME Blast

The Bible appears to indicate that several of the approaching end-time events will be similar to those in Noah’s day as Matthew 24:37 tells us “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man”.

What Does This Mean? The most significant event in Noah’s day was that which caused the destruction of the entire world by water commonly referred to as “Noah’s Flood”.

The Bible tells us that, in the days of Noah, it rained for 40 days and nights, and by some miracle, this was able to flood the entire Earth over the highest mountains; whereas, scientific research claims that the math doesn’t add up – making this event nothing more than an ancient myth.

Scientists scoff! Not enough water can fall, in that amount of time to cover one mountain, let alone ALL the mountains of the world.

The truth, is that the Bible clearly states that rain was NOT the primary reason for flooding. In fact, the scripture state that “…on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst open…” (Genesis 7:11).

This makes The Flood a matter of scientific fact – and the direct cause is something called a geographical pole shift which scientists say occurred thousands of years ago!

Geographic shifts are ones in which the entire planet is suddenly and dramatically moved from its axis; causing untold devastation on Earth’s surface.

The Old Testament doesn’t use the modern-day term of “pole shift” when describing the great flood; however, it provides enough detail about the Earth before, during, and after the event to prove to us that an Axial Pole Shift did indeed occur; ..according to research conducted by Brent Miller at Ingenuity Films LLC.

Genesis 2:6  We read how that in the early days of man, it never rained upon the Earth and that the entire surface was watered from the mist upon it. Was it, Really?  Petrified tropical trees have been discovered under the ice in Antarctica proving this statement!

During the period before the flood, there were NO SEASONS or storms and the entire planet would have existed at a temperate equilibrium with tropical vegetation – including at what we would call our current North and South poles.

Scientifically, the only way to achieve this temperate, considered a paradise, would be if the geographic axis of the Earth was parallel to that of the Sun, or in other words, at zero degrees.

Genesis then clearly states that AFTER the flood (for the first time) there was a rainbow seen by Noah in the sky (Gen 9:13) which is was only now possible since precipitation never fell from the heavens which causes the light refraction necessary for a rainbow.

Today, the Earth’s axis now sits at 23.5 degree which creates frozen poles, seasons, rain and violent storms as the uneven heating and freezing of the planet creates weather systems.

So…we go back to the “fountains of the deep” explained in Genesis and how was it able to flood the entire planet in such a short period of time.

Quite simply, the fountains of the deep were the oceans themselves which makes up 71% of the Earth’s surface.

Basic physics models shows how the flood could have been caused by a shift in centripetal force and angular momentum exerted upon the oceans resulting from an axial pole shift – causing them to overflow their banks  before the Earth stabilized into a new axial position.

It would also take very little “shifting” of the planet to destroy virtually all life on Earth.

During this time most of the evidence for the existence population of the planet, including cities and roads, would be virtually [entirely] erased. Sites such as the Grand Canyon in the United States could have been formed by massive amounts of rushing ocean water in a matter of weeks or months rather than over millions of years as many geologists believe.

Ever hear of The Little Grand Canyon? Mt. St. Helen!! It took just several months to carve out this Canyon — that looks just like the Grand Canyon!

This also explains why fossilized sea life and coral are found throughout the world’s deserts as well on top of our highest mountain ranges! It explains continents — mountain ranges that run North and South.

But….More Than This….The biblical End Times Scenario features terrific global phenomena: 1/3 of all vegetation being destroyed; 1/3 or more of global population dying; 1/3 of all sea life; 1/3 of the Earth’s Land Mass

What has the power to do all this? We know God does. But He used natural forces to effect the Flood. Will He do this again? Some scientists say YES! Ever hear of CME’s  [Coronal Mass Ejections]? The last one was in 1859.

They come from the Sun and kill everything in their path! Based on the wording of the text, many theologians and astrophysicists claim that what is being described could be the occurrence of a (CME) from the Sun hitting the Earth!

Think of the Sun as a ball of liquid FIRE! Burning at around 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit…literally fire, through and through. (i.e. like a lake of fire). This is exactly what is being described within the text of Revelation.

John described that before 1/3 of the Earth was burnt up, “there came hail and fire”; seemingly contradicting states of matter. As the CME continues into the stratosphere, it would then vaporize all planes, birds and flying insects which also matches the next description from John that of hail and fire, “mixed with blood”.

The CME would then continue to the surface of the Earth where John clearly described that this hail, fire and blood is then, “cast upon the earth” – burning up 1/3 of the trees and grass!

This description is specific and intended to be in chronological order; describing exactly what one would expect if an unprecedented CME did indeed strike the Earth.

Biblical Sensationalism?  Recently, governments all over the world have built over 1,000 doomsday seed vaults to ensure the survival of the human race. The largest that we know of is the Norwegian vault on the island of Spitsbergen in the Arctic Circle. In addition, governments have begun building massive underground bunkers and small underground cities carved within the bedrock of mountains for their leadership.

But the most frightening signs

might be the ones hiding in plain sight…

First, unknowing to most, Earth’s magnetic field, which normally protects us from high energy particle emissions from the sun, is collapsing!  With a reduced magnetic field, solar radiation and CMEs will now have a greater impact on the Earth than ever before. In fact, the European Space Agency recently launched a satellite array that monitors solar activity and the impact it has upon the Earth.

During the first 6 months of operation, it was revealed that the Earth’s magnetic field was not only indeed collapsing, but that it was happening 10x faster than researchers first realized.

In addition, recent discoveries by astrophysicists in Japan have revealed that our sun is in fact capable of producing what is now being called a “super flare” which is 20x – 1,000x more powerful than any flare witnessed in our modern age.

What Does All This Mean? It means 1) we’re closer than we thought….. And 2) The Bible is spot-On! What are your Priorities….given the shortened time we apparently have? How are you going to spend your time and money? Where are you going to put your time? Is there an urgency in getting the Word out? Or can we wait for someone else to do it?

How Much Time Do We Have?  Ans: The same amount we’ve always had! Today!! ONLY TODAY!

Volcanoes, Earthquakes & God

volcano

Yellowstone Caldera

What’s Up With All This Tectonic Activity?

Seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado says that “current conditions might trigger at least 4 earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.”

USGS scientist Jim Berkland (who predicted the Loma Prieta ‘World Series Earthquake’) says “Beware the New and Full Moons!” Twenty of the last Twenty-five megaquakes have occured on the dates of New and Full moons. These generally occur in the last 2 weeks of the month.

The issue is what are called ‘equinoctal tides.’ Extreme gravitational forces that cause solid earth to expand and contract much like ocean tides rise and fall. The recent events around the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire” [Japan / Ecuador], not to mention the earthquake swarms in Hawaii, Arizona and Yellowstone Park, have underscored this phenomena.

Berkland says that he is particularly worried about the San Andreas Fault in the LA Basin and the Cascadia Subduction Zone along the coast of Oregon and Washington State, where a long overdue earthquake would undoubtedly be accompanied by a massive tsunami that could kill thousands and cause billions of dollars in property damage.

In Asia, the India “plate” is pushing up with increased pressure, potentially stimulating another 6 or 7 volcanos. Scientists are predicting a category 8 or 9 earthquake…at any time.

We’ve already had 9 category 6, or better, Earthquakes in the last 30 days, ending April 19, 2016. USA, Russia, Indonesia, Japan & Ecuador have been the highest, along with several lessor quakes: Taiwan (6.4) = 117 killed, India(6.7)  = 11 killed; Nepal; China. Ecuador (7.8) has had the greatest loss of life at over 400, so far.

The Bible indicates, rather candidly, that the End of the Age will be characterized by Global Catastrophes of immense proportion, killing off 1/3 of the global population in a very short period of time. It lists war, famine, pestilence, contaminated water and killer earthquakes.

Is the start of that process? It’s Highly Doubtful! Officials report that there have been 957 earthquakes, in the world, so far this year [Apr 19, 2016], and that the Earth’s average is between 10,000 and 15,000 quakes every year! The Killer Quakes are those that occur closest to the surface: 7.0, or more, on the Richter Scale. This is multiplied by where they strike. Under-developed countries fare worse, due to poor infrastructure and warning.

In addition to earthquakes, there are more than a dozen volcanos around the world that pose a significant threat to human life and welfare. Mexico is awaiting the imminent explosion from Mt. Popocatepetl, which roared to life just last Tuesday. A full-blown eruption would threaten a catastrophe beyond anything we’ve have ever seen! Neighboring Guatemala has had a couple of eruptions, in the last months.

These are distant from us, here in the States. However the potential for a catastrophic eruption in the Yellowstone Caldera would dwarf anything we’ve ever seen! Experts estimate upwards of 60-70% of the United States would be impacted, in one way or another.

Should there be a couple more of these volcanos ‘pop-off,’ this year, watch for “Christian” Books, Articles and Movies to start appearing, predicting The End of the World! Anyone remember The Blood Moons?

Technology and a 24-hour News Cycle keeps us informed, like never before. Millions of people, around the globe, are able to see and hear the events, often as they unfold. This creates a tension never before experienced, in the history of the world. It may be you have already ‘tuned out’ in order to preserve your sanity or emotional well-being.

NEWS FLASH!! There is NOTHING anyone can do to stop or even hinder God’s Purpose and Plan. Things are no worse, now, than they have ever been….we simply know more.

Of course, with that knowledge comes responsibility! What are YOU doing, as these events are unfolding around you? We can’t stop earthquakes, but we can offer hope and peace to those who have neither…until Jesus comes!

Look At The World…What Do You See?

WW 3 Has Begun

The majority of this world’s population are poor (by U.S. standards) and disaffected, probably half are desperately so.

Except in countries dominated by Dictators or pseudo-Dictators, National Leadership is chosen by a political ‘Beauty Contest’ instead of whomever is best prepared, informed and equipped to do the job.

As concerns civilized (read biblical) principles and values, the greatest portion of people do not have, nor do they understand what any of this means.

Only in what we call The West do people come close to living a healthful, safe, productive and free life! Unless you and your forebears have been or were living under a rock, you know all this is the product of biblical principles and values.

No nation nor people group the world has ever known has profited, the way we in the West have, by pagan or humanistic means. The major civilizations of history rose and fell on the strength of their leaders, their needs and often the necessities of their day. Many attributed their power and prestige to their gods, who were capricious at best and brutal at worst.

The West has prospered because of her commitment to biblical values and principles. The Protestant Reformation led the way, with it’s biblical commitment to individual worth and freedom of both belief and speech. The United States of America grew out of that sentiment and circumstance, with Great Britain and France following suit….albeit in their own way.

France tried Humanism [In the wake of our Revolution] for a decade or so, with little success and much bloodshed. Citizens were decapitated for the simplest of crimes, mostly for being connected to the former monarchism either in speech or in practice. They even tried a 10-day week, which was not really workable.

The Biblically-Based United States blazed the trail toward individual freedom and wealth, setting an example no other nation has yet exceeded. The water-shed event was World War II. Fascist Germany, Italy and Japan sought to conquer the world, through military subjugation. Only the U.S. stood in her way. Russia was no match, Great Britain, France and even China could not stall the march to victory.

When the U.S. entered the fray, it was over! Biblical principles of industry and sacrifice, coupled with prayer and the single-mindedness borne of a spiritual conviction that God was on the side of Right, motivated and empowered the Western Victory!

It took three and a half years to amass the men and materiel to launch the Invasion on Europe. During that time there were delaying and consolidation efforts in which Italy fell and Japan was stalled. When all was ready, however, the overwhelming might of America was brought to bear on the enemies of Freedom and the war was over in a year.

This ushered in a 50-year period when the U.S. dominated the world’s economy and became a Beacon of Liberty for millions of the world’s people. As long as America stood strong, there was hope. As long as America was strong, the enemies of Freedom and Free Enterprise were at a loss.

In spiritual terms, the ‘god of this world’ took notice! Over the years he orchestrated an effort to make sure this never happened again! Nazism was rooted in the occult [look it up!]. Communism is clearly anti-God. Islam is overtly anti-Christian in belief and practice. There is actually a competition between the Messiah of Christianity and the Mahdi of Islam for control of the world. Everything else is humanistic, spiritistic or animistic.

In our lifetime, it is only in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain  and Australia (somewhat) have we seen any overt ‘nod’ toward the God of The Bible, and that has significantly decreased over the last 50 years. Western Europe is awash in secularism and anti-Christian philosophies. Their  values and laws demonstrate this.

The same is true in the U.S. Today, our government is focused on playing nice with the U.N., in order to bring the world together under one Head. As I write this [March 29, 2016] the U.N. has just announced that Israel is (once again) the worst violator of Human Rights in 2016. Not North Korea. Not any Islamic country. The only Democracy in the Middle East! Also, today, the News was of an airliner diverted to Cyprus, on a flight from Egypt. The U.N. provided a map of the region with the flight path highlighted. Every country was named except Israel! It’s as though she does not exist.

Message? God Is Public Enemy Number One! Who does this? Answer: The Enemy of our Soul: Satan himself. The effort is to dampen and demean anything Christian, while exalting anything humanistic or counter The One True God of Heaven (which includes Judaism].

I have mentioned only a very few of the most obvious efforts. We could talk all day about what the world calls Fleeing Immigrants. Not Fugitives from Islam! Not Refugees of a vicious, religious pogrom. Immigrants who have every right to be assimilated into whichever country they enter, regardless of laws or customs. Regardless of the safety or survival of that country.

These are a few of the Up-Side-Down situations facing the world. Why? Because the ‘god of this world,’ rules in the affairs of men! Because the Prince of the power of the air is carving out a world-system sympathetic to his purpose, which is World Domination with him as Ruler!

When you cannot understand how it is that sane men and women can do some of the things they do (in government or in court houses) look to your Bible!

Ex: The Bible points to a Man of Sin who will ride to the rescue of Israel, with the aid of the Western Nations of the world. Israel will be under attack from her neighbors. The world will be in economic and political turmoil. The world will be looking for a strong leader who will do what’s necessary to ‘fix things.’

Do you see anyone, on the scene or the horizon, who possesses these qualities? Do you see the American electorate tolerating such a character, to run their country? Yes? Then you can see The End, from Here!!

Fundamentalism At Work

Poking The Bear

DON’T POKE THE BEAR UNLESS YOU’RE PREPARED TO FINISH IT!

We hear a lot about Islamic Fundamentalists, usually in connection with terrorist attacks and/or beheadings. What is the difference between a Muslim and a Fundamentalist Muslim?  Answer? The same as between a Christian and a Fundamentalist Christian. A Christian may be anyone who says that’s what they are. A fundamentalist Christian is one who believes (acting upon) what The Bible says about sin, salvation and the Christian life.

We do not hear of Christians blowing up airports or killing innocent people because this is not a fundamental part of Christian doctrine. Pursuing God through violence is not the basic structure or function of Christianity.

When President Obama says terrorism is not what Islam is about, then proceeds to reference these terrorist attacks as proceeding from fundamentalist Muslims, he’s making a fine distinction, probably lost on most of us. Either that or he is deliberately trying to deceive us. We, being those who know very little about Islam.

In post-post-modern America, that last statement might be considered unfair, since words only mean (today) what I think they mean or what I say they mean….to me. In this way, we can talk about conflicting ideas as if they are in harmony with one another and not be wrong. Everything Is My Opinion.

In the last 70 years the word ‘fundamentalist’ has been equated with all that is bad about a philosophy or religion. This is not true with any of the sciences. Abandon the basic principles of physics and the world with explode … Literally!   With religion, however, ‘fundamentalism’ has become a very dangerous and destructive philosophy….in the minds of most people.

What is not said, but understood by literate and rational people, from all walks of life, is that when a religion or philosophy or science is pursued according to it’s basic tenets, it’s Fundamentalism at work!

Fundamental Christianity is focused on what The Bible teaches and ONLY what The Bible teaches, when interpreted by an ordinary hermeneutic (system of interpretation): the one we all apply to everything we read and use for everyday life.

Fundamentalist Islam, however, is bent on dominating the world, by force if necessary, in order to make way for their “Messiah.” It has ever been their pattern, beginning with the Arab countries round about.

The first 50 years of Islam saw Mohammed conquering Syria, Iraq, Iran (Persia), Egypt and the area we know as Israel: Damascus to Egypt. In 668 Muslims began a conquest of the Roman Capital, in the East, Constantinople that would take 11 years (on and off). By 698 Islam had conquered all of North Africa, attacking Sicily in 700 A.D.

Islamic, Moorish North Africa, attacked Spain in 711 A.D. establishing a Muslim presence until 742, when Charles Martel (and others) eventually drove them out of most of Spain.

But then came the re-invasion of Constantinople, which would result in Muslim conquest and a name change: Istanbul, in the Muslim country we know, today, as Turkey. The Seljuk Empire would unite Mesopotamia and a large portion of Persia. Muslims would continue penetrating Europe throughout the next 400 years. The Crusades would later serve to keep them ‘home’ defending Jerusalem and other Moslem cities.

After this the Ottoman Empire began invading Europe in 1300 A.D. Over the next 500 years it would dominate most of Southeastern Europe. This continuous turmoil led to the Renaissance, or Age of Enlightenment, as educators, scholars, scientists, etc. fled the old Roman city of Constantinople and surrounding Southeastern Europe, bringing their knowledge with them.

The flow of European and Middle Eastern history is linked to Islamic Expansion. Why is Islam so focused on controlling the world? Because the Fundamental Religious Belief of Sunni Muslims teaches that their ‘Savior,’ the Mahdi, cannot come until / unless the world is dominated by Islam.

THIS is Fundamentalist Sunni Islam! When is Islam stirred to action? According to the Koran, whenever it is attacked [Sura 2:190-193  (Penquin Classics Edition) “Fight those that fight against you, slay them wherever you find them. Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme.”)

The West attacked Islam in the 1990’s, with the Gulf War. Just about every Western Nation either took part or supported that invasion of Iraq — a Shiite nation, run by a Sunni Dictator. Sunnis make up about 80% of Arabs, but Shias are the most Militant.

Shias believe the Mahdi is awaiting that time when the Earth is mostly Moslem, in order to come and create the Ultimate Caliphate. Sunnis don’t believe he’s been born as yet and are patiently awaiting his arrival. Both believe if you strike them, they can strike you back!

NOTE: There is no correlating passage in The Bible, telling Christians to dominate the Earth through violence, nor strike back at someone. The Bible teaches us to love one another, to do good to one another, if you are struck on the cheek, turn the other one….as far as it depends upon you, live at peace with all men.”

Fundamentalist Christianity only wants people to hear The Gospel of salvation in The Lord Jesus Christ, repent of their sins and believe on Him for eternal life. We have no other message; No other plan or purpose. No other weapon than God’s Word. No other kingdom but that in Heaven. We are ambassadors of Christ, here to represent Him, not build a Caliphate or Kingdom. And, when it’s over, we’re going Home!

The West has ‘poked the Bear,’ and it is now justified in it’s attack upon us! Where will all this end? With a new U.S. President who has Visions of Grandeur?  One who is used to getting his own way?  One who carries a ‘big stick,’ but isn’t prone to ‘walking softly?’

We’ll Have To Wait In Order To Find Out! It May Not Be Long.

What In The World!?

Earth Hands of God

The Bible boldly declares that this world is not going to be here, forever! One day Jesus will come and set all things right! Until then, however, ‘the prince of the power of the air,’ rules in the affairs of men!

Americans often think they are immune, given our circumstance and standing in the world. That notion should have been all but erased, given the last 50 years of our history! However, many Church people still believe things are going to get better and better, until Jesus comes. Kenneth Copeland said as much, just in the last few weeks: “God Is Re-Birthing America!” He sees the ‘end of the Babylon system’ attempting to take over America!

But what saith the scriptures? Unless you are living under a rock, this world is NOT getting better! America is NOT getting better! Millennials are enthusiastic about supporting an avowed Socialist for President!! The next generation is even more disconnected from reality.

We are being threatened by cultural issues, financial issues, political issues, global issues and religious issues. The threat of nuclear destruction has never been more imminent and/or possible. North Korea is threatening to drop a Hydrogen bomb on New York City.

What’s Going On? The Bible teaches us that God created this world; that almost immediately Adam gave this creation over to Satan, as Conservator or Steward. The Principle is found in Romans 6:16: “...to whomsoever ye yield yourself to obey, his servant ye are.”

The principle is illustrated in the ancient Jewish or Eastern legal system. Under that law a man might purchase a property but not receive the benefit of it, until / unless he came and took possession. Until then, those who were there or poachers could work the land and reap the benefit, even though it was not their’s.

That Principle is being worked out where this Earth is concerned. Jesus bought it back, on the Cross, paying The Price. One day He will return to take possession and rule over this, His rightful possession. Until then, interlopers are in charge. Satan and his minions have control, even as we believe civil authorities do.

The Bible reflects this in a number of places and ways. It refers to this world system as lying “in wickedness.” [I Jn. 5:19] That the “course of this world” is being determined by “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” [Eph. 2:2]  That we are not dealing with men and political philosophy, but with “principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Eph. 6:12]

Satan is now called ‘the god of this world,’ his minions, the demons, are rulers, ‘princes,’ over the Earth.   Ex: When Daniel prayed, God answered [Dan. 10]. Yet the angel, sent to give Daniel the message from God, was delayed 21 days by ‘the prince of the kingdom of Persia.’ [v. 13]  Michael was sent to aid this angel who said he and Michael spent those 21 days with ‘the kings of Persia,‘  [demons, no doubt] who rule over this part of Earth.

As Michael was explaining things to Daniel, he mentioned the ‘prince of Grecia,’ another demonic ruler, while Jesus later referred to Satan as “the prince of this world” [Jn 12:31; 14:30]. Paul referred to Satan as “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” [Eph. 2:2]

There are other allusions to this demonic organizational structure in the Book of The Revelation. John is given the vision of three unclean spirits coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, in Rev. 16. We are told they are “the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The Point Is: This earthly world and all its inhabitants are governed by the forces of darkness and evil! The godly do not have an real power. At best, believers are the “leaven” [yeast] providing a Restraining Force, until The Time is right. During this period, Satan is busy working out his purposes: to be like God! God is graciously permitting all this….within limits.

For Satan to succeed, the “Restraining Force or Influence” must be removed. This is The Church: the Bride of Christ, in which dwells His Holy Spirit. When that occurs, the stage will be set for The Great Tribulation! A 7-year battle between the largely unrestrained forces of evil and Israel. Jesus interfering just before Israel is defeated!

Today? Satan and his minions know their time is short. They continue to deceive, through lies, signs and wonders. They sow discord and seek to create that global Economic, Political and Religious Structure which will be used to dominate the world.

Look Around! It’s working! the Family is destroyed, Decency, Honor, Integrity are Gone! The Financial Systems are teetering. The Political systems are in disarray. The Church has almost ceased to exist! It has certainly been co-opted and marginalized. Will it get worse? Oh, Yes!

It will get far more dangerous for Christians and then for everyone else! When it doesn’t seem that things can get any worse, Jesus Will Come! He will put down the rebellion and ascend His Rightful Place: The Throne of David!  From here He will rule the Earth.

“Even So, Lord Jesus, Come!”

The Blessed Hope Is Not Their Focus

Signs Wonders Bentley

“Just as my boot made contact with her nose, she fell under the power of God.”  Todd Bentley

The Spirit of God expressly and specifically revealed to the Apostle Paul that, “... in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;..’

In addition they will gravitate to more mundane, human expressions flowing from their own desires and ideas in an attempt to improve upon The Gospel by imposing legalistic standards which would mark them as ‘spiritual.’ At least more spiritual than others.  I Tim. 4:1,2

That day is here! It has been ‘here’ since Jesus left this planet for Home, due to the fact that this entire Church Age is what The Bible calls ‘the latter days,’ and because men are always going to be men!

However, as the days grow shorter and the enemy of our souls grows more bold [God’s restraining hand being lessened, as we move closer to The End], he is able to influence men in ever greater ways to leave ‘The Faith,’ and cling to their own designs and devices.

Early efforts included overt persecution and horrible executions, at the hands of both civil governmental and ecclesiastical authorities. Today, things are quite different. The pressure is coming from a people who hate God and want no part of His moral standards. They have become a powerful force to limit and even thwart Christian principles and godly behaviors….globally.

The list of morally degrading and socially destructive practices is too long and too disgusting to rehearse. The most recent may be the casual and lighthearted discussion of bestiality on the TVLAND show called “Younger.” After which, I read, Whoopi Goldberg sings a Hymn.

These are social events and developments The Church exists to prevent (by her presence in society and her willingness to speak against), as her members reflect both ‘salt and light.’ However, this Institution has been thoroughly corrupted and co-opted by worldliness and pride!

Consider: Evangelicals are gravitating to a Presidential candidate who’s life and lifestyle represents everything they stand against! Now, the polls are showing that the more an Evangelical voter attends Church, the less likely he/she is to vote for him. What does that say?

It says The Church of Jesus Christ exists….just not out in the public eye! The public face of The Church has been swallowed up by greed, pride, avarice, popularity and spiritism. An Institution based on Spirituality is now either groveling at the feet of earthly ‘mammon,’ or dancing to the tune of spiritual deception.

Let me explain: In my book, “Frontal Assault!” I seek to highlight the doctrinal battles The Church has faced since it’s inception. Battles which have been largely the same, generation after generation, for almost 2000 years. That Battle is no longer being waged! At least not the way it has always been waged.

Today, The Battle is more spiritual. Instead of tackling the issue of how a person is saved, the New Tactic is simply to distract people with shiny trinkets and dark secrets. I speak of the ever-evolving nature of what we call The Charismatic Movement.

The Bible makes The Case that IT is the foundation upon which our Faith rests. It encourages us to ‘study (that Word) to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  [II Tim. 2:15]

To illustrate, the Spirit of God provides a beginning list: profane [things on the other side of the door from holiness] and vain babblings [empty sounding & useless discussions] about things which only lead to more ungodliness.

We are then given an illustration, in the lives of two men: Hymaenaeus and Philetus. Men who strayed from The Truth of God’s Word, saying the resurrection has already past, meaning what we call ‘The Rapture.’ Christians [The Bride of Christ] being called up to Heaven and given their reward.

Harmless misunderstanding? No. They were seeking to create New Doctrine! A doctrine that would subvert and destroy the faith of some. As you might imagine, God takes this sort of thing seriously! Men and women tampering, not only with His Word, but with His Bride!

The instruction from God is: shun these men! Literally,  stand away from them; avoid getting involved with them AND their teachings. Do not follow their doctrine, it is Wrong and it is Destructive of your faith!

Good Counsel? Obviously, but the Western Church has not followed that counsel…to her shame and hurt. Each one, claiming to follow God’s Word, yet carving out religious systems which either clearly deny the Scriptures or The Christ upon which they claim to stand!

If that’s not bad enough, now we have religious groups, claiming to stand opposed to these aberrant systems, seeking to join with them in religious ministry and purpose! Of course this is not really New. What’s New is the way they go about it.

They reduce the Gospel to a general message of religiosity, or worse; reduce the ministry of the Holy Spirit to a Parlor Trick, all the while exalting Him above Jesus!

Harsh? Have you ever seen these people in action? Barking like dogs? Staggering around ‘drunk in the Holy Spirit?’ Telling people who are seriously ill and desperate that all they have to do is send them money and God will heal them or make them rich? Kicking a woman in the mouth in order to heal her….because God told him to do it?

Where are the godly, biblically informed, decent /rational men and women, in this movement, standing up against all this?

Of course, there are some. One man (a leader in this movement) wrote: “…during a season of spiritual coldness and intellectual pride, I tried to deny the things of the Spirit, wanting to distance myself from what I felt were the abuses and errors of the Pentecostal movement. But the testimony of the Word was too clear for men to deny and the Spirit’s work in my life too strong for me to resist.”

This is a man ashamed at the “..folly and gullibility, the lack of discernment and the failure to test all things by the Word….the carnality and ease with which these people are duped and defrauded.”

How are they defrauded? By accepting the notion that either a person is saved when they speak in gibberish or hear voices or see visions, or that the proof of their salvation is found in these same experiences!

What was once a small, marginalized religious movement has become A Force To Be Reckoned With! The last three Presidential Elections have featured men and women on the Ticket who represent this philosophy! They are seeking to conquer the “Mountain of Government” so Jesus can come back. The world being too evil for Him, as it is.

I don’t make this stuff up!

Where Is America Headed After This Election?

Tenents of Totalitarianism

There is no way to ignore the Decline of these United States, over the last 50 years! No area of Corporate Life has been untouched by the ‘Change Agents’ who fancy a more Totalitarian form of government.

There is also no way to ignore the fact that the Constitution and Laws of the United States of America were based on biblical principles. Critics will tell you the Founders were not all [not mostly] committed Christians. Critics will tell you that the Doctrine of the Separation of Church and State belies the claim.

However, it is impossible to ignore the multitude of quotations and references to the God of the Bible and to Christian principles found, not only in the documents and writings and speeches of men associated with Christian Churches and Christianity, but also among men who had no connection, indeed, no time for God and/or Christianity.

The Basic Biblical Principles are too obviously Right and Good to ignore! Those who did / do ignore them end up in political, moral, financial, social decline and chaos. Look around the world. Look at your neighbors. Look at our schools, churches, courts, neighborhoods and families.

The U.S. of A. is a Federal Republic. The powers of central government are restricted, with States retaining a degree of self-government. Ultimate power rests with the voters who choose their governmental representatives.

Dictators, Fascists, Communists, Socialists and Oligarchs hate this! It restricts their ability to dominate in such a way as to accrue the desired power and/or wealth. They also hate our economic system, which is a form of Capitalism: a competitive economy, consisting of privately owned businesses and investments, wherein production and pricing is driven by competition and demand in a Free Market.

To make it work that nation must have 1) Free Elections, 2) A Free Market, 3) A Representative Form of Government, 4) A Judicial System Driven By Settled Law and 5) A Traditional Family Structure.

Remove any one of these and the structure is weakened, leading to a complete collapse.

The United States of America Is In Collapse! Through a series of U.S. Supreme Court Decisions, we have abandoned The Family, Unborn Children, Ten Commandments [which forms the basis of all law], Prayer & Bible Reading in Government Schools and all Objective Standards of Morality.

At the same time we have Enshrined Abortion, Homosexuality, Sodomy and Oral Sex as normal sexual behavior. For our troubles we have created a host of new and growing sexually-transmitted diseases, most of which are incurable. We have also degraded sexual behavior to ‘entertainment’ and further weakened the Institutions of Marriage and Family.

Where are we going with all this? Farther away from our Founding Principles, farther away from the Strength of our Republic, farther away from The Republic. Close to half of all ‘Millennials’ see no problem with Socialism…enter Bernie Sanders. The majority of those who consider themselves Christian embrace some form of either the Charismatic Movement or the Contemporary Movement…enter Ted Cruz &  Marco Rubio.

However, Donald Trump is probably going to win the Republican Nomination for President of these United States. Why? Because he presents a ‘No-Nonsense, Take-No-Prisoners’ approach to governance, just like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson….right?

Wrong! We are at the End of our Corporate Rope! We have no idea what America is; what The Rule of Law is; what Common Decency is; what / Who God is; why we have a Free Economic System, a Traditional Family Structure, the Rule of Law nor why we can no longer educate our children!

But we know The Donald with Make America Great Again!

How? He will bully Congress, Curse the Dictators, Threaten Militant Islam and Demand the world operate the way HE thinks is best! No? That’s how he does business. That’s what he’s saying on the ‘Stump.’  And he has the concept of ‘Executive Orders’ to back him up.

Congress will not get in the way of a popular President, elected with an overwhelming majority of voters. They never have. The Republican Establishment is already lining up behind Rubio, because he can be counted on to ‘negotiate.’ Of the three (Trump, Rubio and Cruz), Cruz is more popular with conservative voters than is Rubio because he doesn’t negotiate with the Republican moderates.

America is heading toward a significant change in political, economic and social policy. What does a Democratic Rabble look like? Three or four hundred million independent citizens with twenty different social, moral, religious and economic values vying for dominance?

It Looks Like Disaster! You DO Know America (probably the entire Western Hemisphere) is NOT in the biblical prophetic scheme….Right?
