 - Collision Course

Each and every passing day, we who know Christ can see our nation is on a collision course with God. On a number of fronts the nation has just decided to set its face against the God who blessed us and move its spiritual foundations towards the spiritual foes of both God and man.

Entitled Not Afraid, Tough Decisions and Job's Sufferings. God will take care of his people. Just make sure brothers when its our time to pass over our own spiritual 'river Jordan', that we make our deaths count for something, that being Christ. If we are to die as Christians for the gospel and the word of our testimony (Rev 19:10, 12:17, 12:11), let us rejoice because we have a long and honorable heritage of those who went before us.

 -  The Curse 


When a nation decides to put the stamp of approval on those things God hates, it invites a curse. And be certain of this, without some real soul searching repentance, a curse is what is going to hit us. America has enjoyed prosperity like no other nation on earth. Military power like no other nation on earth. Good will and diplomatic strength like no other nation on earth. Why? We as a nation respected ...

I think it should be noted that while some people will say they find something 'highly offensive' when they do not really mean it, I want to make clear that I really do mean it, it is personally highly offensive to compare Dr. King and President Obama. If a person wants to worship Obama and idolize him, that is their business, not mine. But before anyone attempts to cast dispersions on Dr. King by ...

This is going to be bad news for many of my readers, but a small portion of my secular writings are going to have to go pay. I have done a pretty good job with this update (if I do say so myself!) dealing with issues that I know many care about. Namely Iran and what a war or 'regime change' is likely to bring about, the EU crisis and how the ongoing economic crisis could deeply effect the US. Keep ...

 -  The Holiday Season 


Christmas has been a matter of some controversy for a number of reasons. First off, one of the few things we can be certain of about Christmas is that Christ was not born on December 25th, or anywhere near it. When was Christ Born? We do not know, though some scholars have said that it was more likely an event that occurred in the Fall, though the evidence for this is rather scant. What we do know ...

 -  There Is A Generation... 


What does it mean to live in our times, having been touched by God's spirit and understanding what God requires of us? It means that we are going to have a hard time fitting in with the current generation. This is the way it should be, since we are of a very different heritage. The scriptures talk about times like ours and what kinds of people will inhabit the earth just before Christ returns. We ...

  The Way Back 


For many of my readers, the way back to God is the road you are on. Many of you have fallen away and for whatever reason, personal tragedy, hard times or just a dissatisfaction with worldly 'satanic' living that did not make you nearly as happy as you thought it would. I find it interesting that so many people here in America have just about everything and yet are totally miserable. I am struck by ...

Today, it is extremely important that we know what is happening in our world, particularly from a prophetic standpoint. Why? The return of Christ is our blessed hope.

Yet as I speak to Christians, I just don't see any level of spiritual discernment in their lives or minds Mind you there are always some exceptions ...

But when it comes to the times and seasons and understanding them, Christians I know as well are floundering. They are often confused and unsure about what to believe.

This is a good thing at least as a first step, but often leads to confusion, depression and can lead to apostasy. Why? Because such Christians ...

A Look At The Past

I have long studied the JFK assassination. and while I spent years reading many books and watching some really quite well done TV series on this (The Men Who Killed Kennedy was one of those). I learned a lot from those books and series and found them to be quite informative. But the why's were never really explained. I think Oliver Stone in the JFK flick really did a good job of putting a slew of info into a three hour film, which was quite a feat in and of itself -  getting all the info and keeping it interesting and entertaining at the same time.  The above video is long and I admit I have not seen most of it, but scanning through it I think it does a pretty good job of explaining a great many of the why's Kennedy, in the view of certain men, had to go. The above video talks a bit about the Texas men who had a hand in organizing his assassination. Even JFK's wife, Jackie O, lets the world know. Some of her private tapes were released not long ago and she was of the firm belief that Johnson was the one who was behind it

Why did they kill Kennedy? There was no single answer to that one. I have talked about this before but given the political backdrop here in the US, with its first African American president who has clearly been 'captured' by the deep state, we should step back a moment and consider what they did to JFK and why.

First and foremost. JFK was not supposed to win in 1960. The Deep state had arranged Nixon to be the next President. This had long been arranged. For those of you who saw the Movie 'Nixon' with Anthony Hopkins, they touch on this in the movie. The reality was that Nixon was being groomed for the Presidency and Kennedy, via some adept maneuvers out of Chicago, where the election returns were extremely slow in coming in gave Kennedy the Presidency. Now remember that Chicago has always been a 'Mob' town and controlled by organized crime elements since the says of Al Capone. These were some of the forces Kennedy got into bed with to become President. They did not support him for nothing, No one supports any President for nothing. They wanted something as did many others who helped him into office.

Too often people think the President has enormous power. The simple fact is, the President is a prisoner to his party, donors, and most importantly to the deep state that controls all of the key power levers in America  - banking, defense, intelligence, law enforcement and even now, a new player has emerged, the Medical Establishment which I suspect will play a key role in the new emerging crisis the world faces, population control. But that is another story.

Kennedy's policies often ran up against those key members of the establishment and there was considerable concentration of corporate power back in those days and even more today. Kennedy had to manage these forces as well as push forward his agenda. His agenda was based mainly on economic development and the alleviation of poverty and cooperation on the global stage rather than confrontation.  He saw how debilitating and self reinforcing poverty could be and did what he could to shift US policy to ameliorate these problems not just nationally, but internationally as well. One of this initiatives was the Peace Corp which was founded withing two months of his ascendency to the Presidency,

The Peace Corps is a volunteer program run by the United States government. The stated mission of the Peace Corps includes providing technical assistance, helping people outside the United States to understand American culture, and helping Americans to understand the cultures of other countries. The work is generally related to social and economic development. Each program participant, a Peace Corps Volunteer, is an American citizen, typically with a college degree, who works abroad for a period of two years after three months of training.

Volunteers work with governments, schools, non-profit organizations, non-government organizations, and entrepreneurs in education, hunger business, information technology, agriculture, and the environment. After 24 months of service, volunteers can request an extension of service.

Kennedy was a true visionary. An imperfect man by all accounts but as President his vision was truly the embodiment of the American spirit. Here is something he said during his inaugural address.

So let us begin anew--remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms--and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah--to "undo the heavy burdens . . . (and) let the oppressed go free."

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved. - JFK

Kennedy's words and his vision were diametrically opposed to many of the powers in America who, like today wanted total dominance of the globe under US control and were not concerned about how they got it. Kennedy wanted a world where the rule of law prevailed. Today, our Establishment wants a world where the rule of law is a drone, controlled out of a secret bunker, with secret targets with secret warriors who kill people whose names they more often than not, won't or can't reveal. It's world where cowardly men hide behind secret classifications to overthrow the aspirations of the poor man rather than help him to attain them. This is the America that those who killed Kennedy have created. They did not like his vision and killed it with multiple bullet wounds to the Presidents head.

But today, I feel that it is meet that we talk a moment or two about this, the deep state and why our current President may be in some danger as result of many issues.

First, the fact that we have a power behind the throne more and more is no longer a major secret. There have been some excellent studies done by some of the most prestigious universities in the nation and world, often done under government contract because the government itself cannot be relied upon to conduct such studies. One such study was done on a global scale back in 2011, It's called the Network of Global Corporate Control. It was very good a and highly technical but in int are some pretty interesting charts and assertions. These guys did their homework as anyone who reads it can see.

Towards the end of the study they placed this chart that gives you an idea of who is running the global financial system.

From The Network of Global Corporate Control
           By Stefania Vitali, James B. Glattfelder, Stefano Battiston

Many of you may find this of interest. My point here is to show you that JFK had to deal with the power forces of his day in order to get things done. Many of these men inside the National Security Establishment hated the Kennedy's because of this vision for the future. We must remember that it had not been many years since WWII had ended and that many of those Nazi's whom the US helped were inside the US and working for the CIA and other places deep withing the US establishment (see video). Kennedy himself was a WWII veteran. If you look at that above video you  get a feel for where some of the key Intelligence people of the day were coming from. You can read an interesting piece on this here. Once you read that you can get a better understanding of some of the forces President's are up against (if they choose not to cooperate) when they get into office for these fascist forces are an integral part of the American deep state. Kennedy's call was to bring in development to the poorer parts of the world and end oppression. As we have seen in the past 60 years of US foreign policy, the US has been behind so much of the world's oppression, from Africa, to Latin America to anywhere in the world where non-Aryans lived.

Kennedy's vision, even uttered before he became President was a world where cooperation was the supreme test of legitimacy, not proxy wars between east and west and arms races. He rejected what he refereed to as the 'pageantry of imperialism'.  Here is what he said on the Senate Floor in 1959.

As a nation, we think not of war but of peace; not of crusades of conflict but of covenants, of Cooperations; not of the pageantry of imperialism but of the pride of new states freshly risen to independence.  We like to look, with Mr. Justice Holmes, beyond the vision of battling races and an impoverished earth to catch a dreaming glimpse of peace.  In the words of Edmund Burke, we sit on a “conspicuous stage,” and the world marks our demeanor.  In this year and in this Congress we have an opportunity to be worthy of that role. - JFK Library
In fact, he was against one of the major issues that has been in our headlines recently, that being the Export import bank. He saw it for what it was, a way for Bankers to extract interest payments from poorer nations that ultimately did not create growth, but retarded it... at considerable profit to western bankers.

In fact, Ted Sorenson, A key Kennedy confidant makes it plain that Kennedy believed that the idea's of social justice, land distribution to the poor, economic growth in the developing world should not be regarded as 'communist' slogans, as many of those on the political right charged.

One of Kennedy's key and most vocal opponents was Wall Street. One of those was the attacks he often suffered from the Wall Street Journal, which was at the time owned by the Bancrofts. They constantly accused him of being a socialist and introducing a 'planned economy'. They did this just before his death. But they were not the only ones who disliked his policies. There were also those of the Luce Press who were not fond of his policies. The Luce press was Time and Fortune Magazine, both were extremely influential in the days before the internet. Henry Luce was Skull And Bones and at the time of Kennedy's Presidency, six of Time Magazines directors were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Time magazine with Luce, was in fact an integral part of a network of top Banking, Oil and Financial conglomerates that ran America. The Morgan, Rockefeller interests in particular. It is interesting to note that Mr. Luce was born in China and was one of the key GOP leaders who was part of the China Lobby. Luce's vision and Kennedy's from all I can gather, were diametrically opposed to one another.

"America needs at this moment a moral leader, a national moral leader.
The outstanding national moral leader of the world today is Mussolini." 

- Henry Luce
Perhaps now you get a better feel for the forces that JFK was up against and the above video talks about the extreme measures he took to protect himself from this secret society that is also known as 'the Order'. The video talks about Dulles who was instrumental in funding Hitler. Kennedy's policies were 180 degree's opposite of these fascists and when one understand who these people are, their names and what they owned and controlled and then line that up with what Kennedy was trying to do, one can better understand why they believed they had to kill him. His vision for America was 180 degree's opposite of what these Nazi's had for America and as I said the last time I talked abut JFK, what we have  been witnessing these past 60 years with all of the coups in Latin America, the assassinations, the mass poisonings, medical experiments on Americans; the wars, the terrorism the US arming of terrorists, the destruction of Constitutional rights in this nation, this is all the result of the coup that took plane on November 22nd, 1963.

As I said  before, Kennedy was not supposed to be President. That job was promised to Richard Nixon. He moved to NYC joined a law firm that was connected to Rockefeller and lived in an apartment building owned by Rockefeller (810 5th Avenue) not long after his defeat bu Kennedy. He had to bide his time but he knew he had powerful and wealthy friends who would put him in the White House when the time came. But his dream of the Presidency was also nearly thwarted by another Kennedy. This time RFK was hugely popular and had just won the Democratic Primary in California, the nation's largest state. During his acceptance speech, he was gunned down. RFK was not supposed to be that popular, but he was winning major upsets and was set to be a major problem for Nixon. Clearly the devils henchmen saw that they  needed a 'lone nut' assassin to do him in an they found one.

This is why we all need to understand that this power behind the throne will never relinquish power. They will use whatever means at their disposal to get what they want and murder is just one of their many tools.

You see dear readers, while many conspiracy writers tell you of these thing what they don't tell you is that what all of this really is is nothing more that the visible part of a powerful demonic stronghold that controls the American government. Committed Christians better understand this. They know that behind these men who do evil is the devil who deceives them into doing it. Satanism in high places? Yes, its real. These secret societies who control vast bureaucracies and money? Yes they are real and they pay a lot of money to denounce those who expose their wicked works. Usually with mockery, but those who gather a large audience and credibility, they have been known to kill.

We are dealing with a system of Mammon better known as modern satanism. It like all organizations that are of the devil, they work in opposition to God, his order and nature itself. This is why we have seen the proliferation of GMO' to destroy nature, the acceptance of perverted sexual activity because it is against God's order, the enthronement of corruption, because it brings tremendous harm to mankind in general. The devil's MO has not changed. He has developed new tools and new causes to steal, kill and destroy with, but once one understand what his goals are, identifying him and his works is not that hard if you have the Spirit of God guiding you.

Many Christians cannot see these things because they are devoid of the Spirit. They don't really know God. They have the spirit of religion but not the spirit of God. This is why these matters fly over the head of so many nominal Christians. They don't want to hear these things and even those that do, have a hard time linking it up with the idea of Spiritual Warfare. A key concept for all Christians, especially in these dark and deceptive times. Each of you know that we really wrestle against spiritual forces who oppose the rulership of God. These beings are better known as fallen angels. The men they use are nothing more than useful idiots in satan's kingdom. He gives them a few worldly trinkets and they go out and lie steal and kill for him, not even knowing who their real master is. They think they are in control, but most of these men are hopelessly controlled by organizations who will use many evil methods to keep control of its servants. The will blackmail, murder, kill, set up and find other ways of intimidating members from terminating their satanic employment. This is why with at least some of these men, they are to be pitied, not envied. Many of them are miserable and completely unhappy. Others serve with glee.

I post this today because I think it meet that we understand why our current President is the way he is. I can say that the first year or so of his administration, he did his level best to bring in some change. He was thwarted from the beginning, often by people in his own administration. One of those was Hillary Clinton, whom was pretty much promised the Presidency like Nixon was and never forgave Obama for beating her, fair and square. The President has had to tangle with the same forces Kennedy did. How much of his cooperation with them willingly is a matter of speculation, but this much is known. There are forces who posses very damaging information about him. So it is not clear to me just how much of Obama's policies are really Obama's and how much are those who have managed to get control of him by virtue of the the methods described in the above video. These men are powerful, they control a great deal of American society and they simply cannot be ignored.

So I ask all of you to pray for our President as we go through these troubles and the other drama that no one is saying much about.

The deep state will stop at nothing to keep power and its control over the US banking system and the control of our money. That is why some are working very hard at getting rid of cash. Once that happens, all money will be in the total control of the banks and the banking system. They will be able to charge you whatever fee they want for the privilege of keeping your money and there will  be little anyone can do about it.

So Keep those things in mind as you watch the video because the truth is, the men who killed Kennedy are now ruling and ruining America.

The Harvest

Harvest time is a time when all the hard work a farmer does is brought to fruition. It' a time when all the sowing, tilling, watering, ploughing, dealing with pest all comes to an end and the fruit of ones labor can be gathered together. harvest time is one that is important both in the Old testament as well as New Testament Prophecy.

I cover this issue today because I think it meet that we understand one of the key why's of the delay in our Lord's coming. People are in such a hurry but God is not. God's plan is not man's plan. God has a purpose for his delaying Christ's coming. If Christ had returned in the first century, then there would have been far, FAR fewer saints in heaven.

If Christ had come in the first century then you and I would never have been, nor would we have the opportunity to become sons of God. If Christ had come in the first century - most of the prophecies in the OT would have been false for many, many things had to happen before Christ could come, though the early saints probably did not look at these things believing that Christ's return is right around the corner. Think of Revelation 11:9. The whole world shall see the dead bodies of God's two witnesses. How could that have happened in the first century? Today it is possible with the advent of TV, the internet, cellphones and tablets and now 'wearables'. Daniel told us that travel and knowledge would increase. Both increased exponentially beginning in the early 20th century. Such things could not be said about the world even in the mid 1800's. Men still sailed in ships powered by wind, and got from point A to point B by horseback.
God wants a bountiful harvest. He wants lots of souls in heaven and has part of the reason for his delay is to get that bountiful harvest.

But God's harvest demands that the fruit be ready to be harvested and in the proper amount before the sickle is laid to the crop. The crop was just being laid into the ground back in the first century. But through the ages Christianity has grown so that today, millions call themselves Christian. This result is from a very small sect - 'cult' as the Romans saw Christians - that had a small band of seemingly ragtag men and women who heard the words of the savior and literally changed the world.

God has a harvest. It's a spiritual harvest but a harvest nonetheless. This is a harvest that has those souls who are to be saved and those who are to be dammed. Like a farmer, he has to wait for all the crops to grow and the Lord, as we all know, he has a specific number of martyrs who will give up their lives for their faith (Rev 6:11).

The idea of the harvest is one firmly rooted in the Bible and one that we should on some level familiarize ourselves with. Christ talked about a harvest and even gave parables about it.
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
(Mat 13:24-30)

Here the Lord is describing one of the problems with farming. That being weeds. Even in this giant human farm known as earth and the parcels of land that the Lord has dedicated to himself (the Church), there will be weeds. But the Lord's solution was to make sure that as many as possible would get in and decided to let the weeds grow with the wheat. He would separate them one from another at harvest time (the end of the age). So the Lord had a farming strategy. The basic one was to save as many souls as possible (get the biggest harvest) and take a few risks with weeds to ensure that everyone has a chance at Salvation.
There is a major harvest in the last days.

And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
(Rev 14:14-20)

When the Harvest of the earth is ready, the Lord will thrust in his sharp sickle and reap the harvest of the world.

What is this harvest? There appears to be two of them.

First It is the final result of the seeds that have been planted since the days of Pentecost. The harvest of those who have come to know Christ and remained faithful to him. The Son of man sits on a cloud and when the time is right, he reaps the harvest of the world.

Second it is the harvest of wrath – those who follow after and persist in the works of darkness – they belong to a second harvest, the harvest of wrath. We have all heard the expression the grapes of wrath, well this is where it comes from. Note that the second reaper this angel has the power over fire. Fire burns. What happens to the tares at the end of the a age?

So again, we have two harvests here and each are important in that I think they demonstrate the culmination of God's two track plan for the unique problem that man presented him with. Two track plan with one end in mind – get as many saved souls in heaven (fruit in the barn) as his righteousness and his sovereign plan allow.

Some commentators only see the harvest of judgment here and the fact that two separate angels who ave different powers does not signify. I think it does as the Son of Man on a cloud with a crown is very much an image of Christ for the first group does signify.

What the harvest of God represents in my view is first and very important part of the culmination of God's plan for both classes of people, the saved and the lost.

But one thing that most of us often forget, yours truly included, is how the Biblical prophecies tend to line up perfectly with the feasts of the Old Testament. One dear reader of mine a couple of months ago reminded me of this fact in one of her personal letters.

Many have found that if you look at the New Testament and the first coming of Christ, we see the spring feasts symbolized. If we look at the fall feasts (harvest time) we see the second coming of Christ.

The Passover/Unleavened Bread

This was fulfilled on the cross and the last supper

The feast of the First Fruits

This was fulfilled when Christ rose from the dead (1 Cor 15:23). But this feast also seem to bridge the gap between advents as we find that the firstfruits of the harvest are found just before the trumpets sound in Revelation

These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

(Rev 14:4)

The feast of weeks was fulfilled at Pentecost as this was the first harvest of believers. It was on that day that 3000 came to Christ and the Lord began to add numbers to them. (Acts 2:41ff)

Yet it is the fall feasts are the ones that line up with the second advent of Christ. We will deal with the Feast of Trumpets first.

This begins in Revelation Chapter eight verse six forward.

And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
(Rev 8:6)

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
(Lev 23:24-28)

This feast (of Trumpets) is again found in this prophetic episode. This feast is also known as the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah). Rosh Hashanah precedes the day of Atonement (payment for sins) by 10 days. This process is part of redemptive symbolism and each succeeding day is to be started by the sound of a trumpet. You can read a little more about it here.

Here is a graphical representation of the seven feasts of Israel.

Source: End Time Pilgrim

So we see the seven trumpets as a prelude to the judgments upon our world and the harvest is not of wheat and corn but of the sons of men – some to life and some to damnation. Those who love the Lord and have demonstrated that love by obeying his commandments will get into the kingdom. They will be part of what we will call here the harvest of life, those who follow after antichrist, his ways his kingdom and those who take his mark upon their right and or forehead, they shall be of the harvest of death.

He that has an ear, let him hear -

The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
(Mat 13:38-43)

So this idea of a harvest has a clear connection to both the Jewish Law as well as to the techniques of basic farming when someone wants to grow a crop. God's wants to grow a crop of righteous souls who love and honor him in spirit and in truth. Those who are not afraid, who have courage and faith and will go the distance with Jesus, even if it costs them their lives – and for many who are living today our faith will indeed cost us our lives.
This harvest of souls is of great importance to us in our times for I think the fruit is almost ripe to be harvested.
We must prepare our hearts and souls for the trials that the world shall undergo before the Lord redeems us. But I note some other things here in Revelation chapter 14. It's a busy chapter because several things happen
The firstfriuts are redeemed
A great angel with the eternal gospel preaches to the whole world
Babylon falls
Men are warned in the most sever fashion not to take the mark of the beast.
A word of encouragement is given to those who die in the Lord (after Babylon's fall and the institution of the Mark)
The Trumpet judgment begin to sound and the earth is harvested
God's wrath is manifest in the great winepress.
In this we see the divine order of judgment on the ear and we get a good sense as to where we believers in these times shall stand. We have our orders and must do as our Lord bids. This is the only way to get into the kingdom of heaven and be fruitful in a way that pleases God.

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Rom 6:22-23)

Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death
(Rom 7:4-5)But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
(Gal 5:22-26)

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
(Eph 5:9)

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
(Heb 13:15-16)

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
(Jam 3:18)

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
(Jam 5:7-8)

Migration Crisis: Is It Stacked Against Christians?

This piece looks at the actual process itself and shows that yes, it is stacked against the Christians. So far over 2000 Muslims have made it in and just over 50 Christians.

Those processed in the US so far according to data from State.

Look to you like the process so far is fair? Especially given what is happening to Christians over there?
Seven years of Obama and one cannot help get the impression that somewhere deep in his soul or in his administration is a stubborn streak of bigotry against Christians. Christians are bearing the brunt of the trouble over there and he just seems most unwilling to extend a helping hand... except to their persecutors.

I don't say that lightly nor do I mean to give offense to the President but he can do better, he just does not want to. But I have watched what this man has done and time and  time again he seems to go out of his way to mess over Christians while himself claiming to be one.

Well, I can claim all day long to be a White man, but that don't make it so. Anyone with two eyes in their head can see otherwise.

I have two eyes in my head and with this President, I see otherwise.

Claiming to be Christian don't make it so.

This administration needs to put aside its bigotry and stop looking at all that money Hollywood put in his war chest and do the right thing.

EU: 'Yellow Star' Markings For Some Israeli Products

Products from Israel in 'settlements' are now to be specially marked. This is not all that different from what happened in the past. More here. These anti-Semitic moves were approved, or at least were not opposed by the US government.

Want a history lesson of anti-Jewish decree's in the past? Check it out, download it and watch how the world slowly  brings in many of the same things again but on a global scale.

Antisemitism is alive and well and dwelling in the corridors of power in the western world.

Carrying Bibles To Hostile Nations: You Can Too!

If I did not have so much federal interest in my person and had the money I would consider this. But I am certain that such a  trip for me would be one way and probably would be for all who were with me as well. I am very much a 'person of interest' for a great number of people and governments around the world and they would love to see me take a different kind of trip...

...six feet down.

But some of you may want to consider this as something you can do for Jesus and the Gospel.

Archbishop Accused Of Crime For Expounding Church's Teaching On Marriage

This is indeed a sad day. Read this, I won't summarize it.

Paris Terrorists Didn't Use Encryption

The attacks in Paris - so far the information says that the terrorists used Communications in the clear. But naturally that does not signify - the US wants serious access to all communications, without warrant or cause? Why? Because that is what every repressive nation in the world wants. They want to know all there is to know about you so they can blackmail you, control you and destroy you if you decide you want to live like a free person. Go back and read your history - the history of tyranny. You don't want to give the government that kind of power because when they take away your last remaining rights - like to vote in meaningful elections, there will be no way to remove a government who is run by a foreign power and our government and our political leaders are being bought by foreigners like never before. And you know what? Every time a bomb goes off, NSA contractors can expect a boost in their contracts and politicians a boost in their campaign donations. (I hope you get a chance to click on those links!)

The way Americans need to start look at what is happening is more like a silent and hostile takeover of the nation. Top leaders have gone so far as to be identified as spies and taken out by our intelligence community and beaten up to make sure they stop what they are doing and resign... or else. Why do they have to do that? The courts nor the Justice Department will not charge our political leadership with treason. That's why it's so easy and fashionable for so many of them to sit in power for decades. Charges like that are for the 'little people' like Manning and Sterling.

Yes, that is how bad it is. When you see all of this fear and loathing being placed in our media that they need more power for this or that. Ask the critical questions. If terrorists are not using encryption who is? I will tell you - Activists who expose criminality, reveal espionage at high levels and government corruption; corporations who have sensitive data that foreign governments would love to steal and exploit (industrial espionage).

Anti-Terrorism is nine times out of ten just the advertisement  -  the rallying cry used by subverted elements in our political system to help criminals, traitors and spies help themselves to data that they should not have access to and cannot acquire by other means.

Everyone wants to blame Snowden but let me tell you something. What his actions did was expose massive holes in our security apparatus that no one was willing to address, though they were identified over and over again. The NSA  said time and again they had it under control, no need to worry their systems were secure. And the Intelligence oversight committee believed it - in between naps... and 'private time' with their 19 year old intern.

It turns out that those people who were tasked with doing background checks on those with the very highest clearances did not even do any checking... AT ALL.

So it was (and probably still is) exceptionally simple for a spy to get into the system and steal reams of data and hand it over to a foreign government. This frankly is the key lesson that Snowden revealed to all. Sure, we are all focusing in on the data he allegedly stole. But the real story is that he 'stole' it and so much of it was information he did not have official access to or was cleared for.

So who do you think knows this and more importantly can get their favorite wind-up, 'patriotic' neocon Senator or Congressman to shout terrorism loud and often so that new reams of data can be collected by the NSA and go out the door to China? Why hack when you can get the NSA to hack for you?

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

Most of these pro-NSA panic stricken government employees and elected officials have lied so often - nothing they say can be taken at face value.

Well, read the story know the lay of the land because if these false patriots win this game you had better lean to speak Chinese and how to work very hard in a labor camp for the party or live out your days in a tiger chair

Encryption is not the enemy - its the treasure trove of data that foreign powers want and think they can  get the US and UK to collect so that they can steal it.

Are new FISA court 'mass surveillance' warrants out after the attack in Paris and the credible terrorist threat by ISIS? Probably - I say this solely because of the technological problems I have experienced over the past 36 hours or so, I would think it likely... just in time  before the NSA access to phone data expires.

In closing let me post this as well out here on the public site.

Begin excerpt -

I have to step in here and make this comment because this is going to be one of those issues we are not going to hear much about as the US will do all in its power to classify it and keep it out of public debate. From reporting we have seen in the news the past few months it is clear that the US wants an unfettered 'in' into EU data sets and is not happy about the new ruling on Safe Harbor. They want the power to spy on EU citizens without warrant or cause.  What do I mean?. Think about Greece and how its leaders sold out to the Bankers and broke all the promises they made to the people who had just elected them and you understand what I mean here.  In order to 'influence' powerful people they need to, as that NSA connected corporation says, 'know more about you'.

You see the experience of so many Europeans is fundamentally different that those of Americans. Europe suffered under the Nazi's and war to them is not like it is to Americans, a 'virtual game' you watch on the News and then flip over to a movie. Many Europeans especially Germans from the east know and fully appreciate the value of personal privacy. The Stasi were ruthless. Here is how Wikipedia describes the Stasi.
It has been described as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies to have ever existed. The Stasi was headquartered in East Berlin, with an extensive complex in Berlin-Lichtenberg and several smaller facilities throughout the city. The Stasi motto was "Schild und Schwert der Partei" (Shield and Sword of the Party), referring to the ruling Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED).

One of its main tasks was spying on the population, mainly through a vast network of citizens turned informants, and fighting any opposition by overt and covert measures, including hidden psychological destruction of dissidents (Zersetzung, literally meaning decomposition). Its Main Directorate for Reconnaissance (German: Hauptverwaltung Aufklärung) was responsible for both espionage and for conducting covert operations in foreign countries. Under its long-time head Markus Wolf, it gained a reputation as one of the most effective intelligence agencies of the Cold War. Numerous Stasi officials were prosecuted for their crimes after 1990. After German reunification, the surveillance files that the Stasi had maintained on millions of East Germans were laid open, so that any citizen could inspect their personal file on request; these files are now maintained by the Federal Commissioner for the Stasi Records.

- Wikipedia

So keep in mind that Americans tend to look at surveillance as ho-hum and aren't worried about it. Europeans who saw friends and loved ones destroyed, disappeared and murdered by a surveillance state knows that the dangers it poses are not academic nor are they a minor inconvenience. Tyranny kills. It kills people - almost always good people who love others, freedom and truth and that is why so many Europeans have no love for the NSA's surveillance state. They don't want to be rendered to Gitmo and sit there for decades even AFTER THEY HAVE  BEEN CLEARED OF ANY TERRORIST CONNECTIONS OR WRONGDOING as so many are at this very moment, feeling the tender mercies of the CIA's torturers. The NSA wants to undo the damage they perceive that Snowden  did and there is only one way to do that - 'convince' Europe of the need for more surveillance. How do you do that?

Read the news.... you'll figure it out.

Brothers in Christ just remember - we will be the first (or second) to go. They will probably go after the Black man first, but Christians will be high on any list of people to 'control'. This is already happening all over the world to Christians. We must not sit silent while bad people in power make bad decisions that places too much concentrated power in the hands of the few.

They did that in Germany in the 1930's and we all know the result.

I do not mean to insinuate that we have a 'Stasi' operating in the US. No, but with each new law that takes away privacy and hands it over to a security apparatus that leaks like the titanic after it struck the iceberg, we are well on our way to having one.

The problem with tyranny is that you never know you have past the point of no return until you have past it and try and change things.

The last thing I want to do is hamstring legitimate efforts to stop terrorist attacks - and keep in mind all of those ISIS guys in Europe were already ID'd as terrorists and no one did anything about them -  but I do want to make sure that the snakes who operate at high levels in our system are not using fear as a powerful tool against America and the people of the free world in ways only a few who are 'in the know' understand to get data that has nothing to do with terrorism for purposes that run counter to the security of the nation.

Consider what I say here. I am not talking out of my backside - these are long standing problems that are very deep. So next time you hear about the government's 'insider threat' program you now have a better idea just what is at stake.

Christians In China Continue To Be Victims Of Medieval Like Torture

This article is the result of an upcoming UN appraisal of this issue. AI and Human Rights Watch both are cited in this piece. You can read an interesting report on this here on the HRW site.

This is quite good and I hope you get a chance to read this and pray for those who are being abused by a system that seems to be going backwards at lightspeed under Xi.

American Governors Close Doors To Syrian Refugee's

While this is certainly understandable, it is also very sad. These people for the most part are nothing more than ordinary folks who have literally lost everything - their homes, livelihoods and even in many cases loved ones. I also share the deep concern about having radicalized Muslims come here en masse. But I also think that since we have seen that the majority of those refugee's coming to Europe have been unaccompanied males, perhaps we could allow in those who did not get a chance to enter into Europe. Mainly unattached children and mothers with small ones.

We may not be able to help everyone, but we certainly can help someone.

 I hope the governors can come up with something more kind but also in keeping with legitimate security concerns.

Syrian Proxy War Gets Darker

Yes, it is and America just upped the ante considerably. Could this  be the explanation for the Russian Airliner over Egypt and a host of future mishaps?

Satan's spirits are busy drawing the world into a new world war.

You know, I think it meet that I say this now. These are days that try men's souls. The nation I now live in is more and more unknown to me. The people who have taken over its security systems, they sound more like demon spirits than men. They act more like demon spirits than men. They lie, cheat, steal, kill, blackmail, set up, bribe and pay others to do unspeakable evil, often just to blame someone else and deceive others into hatred.

This is a sick world and a sick nation. Insane? There is clearly a Biblical precedent for this kind of spiritual insanity. It was noted in Babylon as well as ancient Israel, just before the Lord Judged her. The saying that whom the the Gods would destroy they first make mad, well it's not in the Bible... exactly... but the idea is clearly in there.

For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. Then took I the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:
(Jer 25:15-17)

This theme is an interesting one and one thing that seems to drive men into this spiritually induced insanity is idolatry (Jer 50:38). Now Idolatry takes many forms. It can be in the form of Baphomet or in its new more modern form, simple covetousness (Col 3:5). It is and was a sin of Babylon (Jer 51:13)

If you step back at times and wonder why so many things in our nation today just seem plain nuts, that is why. There is a spirit of stupor and crazy that tends to overtake nations in the latter part of the spiritual decay cycle. That's why we see our nation behaving in such bizarre fashion, both here at home and overseas. What has amplified it here? Drugs - legal and otherwise. I also think that water fluoridation plays a powerful role and the EU knows of the dangers of it.... that's why they don't treat their water with it. It can damage your brain. Let's not talk about the amount of mind altering drugs that gets into our drinking water. No dear readers, there are reasons why our nation seems more and more to resemble a madhouse, with crazies almost weekly shooting up a school, mall or Church. it's all  done on the altar of Corporate greed and covetousness (think Big Pharma) and consequently, the nation is going mad. The people no longer want to deal in reality and seek emotional escape (anti-depressants) and other drugs. What is insanity?  It's a failure or inability to deal in reality.

Why are American policies more and more seeming to be less and less grounded in any kind of reality? Because we have become arrogant and increasingly lack the ability to deal in reality. It's why we borrow too much money. We don't want to deal with fiscal realities - so be borrow ourselves to oblivion. Upset about your marriage problems? -Pop a pill to make you happy... or horny. Too arrogant to stop and consider the other guys position? Drop some Tow missiles to terrorists! The nation has become too violent to stop and consider negotiating before we send in massive arms shipments to some terrorist or Nazi army. So what has the Lord done in similar situations in the past? What will he one day do with all the armies of the world? Let's go back to the book of Kings and see how the Lord dealt with one arrogant king who forsook the Lord, King Ahab. This story is most telling and it deals with the death of this evil King.

And they continued three years without war between Syria and Israel. And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel. And the king of Israel said unto his servants, Know ye that Ramoth in Gilead is ours, and we be still, and take it not out of the hand of the king of Syria? And he said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramothgilead? And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses. And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day. Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the king. And Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him? And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so. Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Hasten hither Micaiah the son of Imlah. And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them. And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them. And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king's hand. And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good. And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak. So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king. And the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the LORD? And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil? And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself. And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him back unto Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son; And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace. And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead. And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle. But the king of Syria commanded his thirty and two captains that had rule over his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Israel. And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, Surely it is the king of Israel. And they turned aside to fight against him: and Jehoshaphat cried out. And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him. And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded. And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot. And there went a proclamation throughout the host about the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country. So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria. And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD which he spake. Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he made, and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? So Ahab slept with his fathers; and Ahaziah his son reigned in his stead.
(1Ki 22:1-40)

Such passages give us a look at not just the difference between a true and a false prophet, but also how God will use false religion and false prophets to entice a nation and a king into a disaster. Note a few things.

  • One king (Ahab) listened only to false prophets
  • The false prophets only told the king what he wanted to hear
  • The false prophets in their lust to kiss up to the king were leading him into disaster.
  • The other king was not buying the chorus of courtesan prophets and wanted to hear the true word of the Lord.

There were two groups of prophets. One group was on what we will call 'the approved government contractor list' of prophets. The other, the one who spoke in the Lord's name was not. King Ahab did not have him on his payroll. Clearly no one who spoke in the Lord's name was in the first group for Jehoshaphat had to ask for one. Ahab was a noted Baal worshiper so that is probably whom he had lined up to give the King a word that he wanted to hear.

But as Michaiah the prophet speaks, the true prophet -  he is threatened in a round about manner to tell the king what he wants to hear. "Don't go against the grain... these guys have said go up a have victory and you had better do the same..." is the not so subtle message given to Michaiah. Michaiah at first tells the King just what he wants to hear, go up, you'll prosper. I kind of think he may have said that as a kind of mockery of the false prophets and the man who threatened him.  But then someone compels him to tell the truth.  The truth was that the King would not come back from the battle alive. Michaiah, was not following the government-false prophet approved 'narrative'.

But also we get a look at the divine throne room. God was deciding on the methodology on how to get rid of Ahab and how to entice him to his doom. It was a lying spirit that was put there to deceive Ahab and they were everywhere. These false prophets had a false spirit, a deceiving spirit and the Lord not only allowed this, he even directed it so that Ahab could be destroyed.

This is what happens when false religion and false worship enter in. Those who want deceits to guide their policies will get it. Ahab did not want to hear the word of the Lord, he wanted to hear what these other baal-ite brown-nosers were going to tell him, probably for a price in gold or silver 'consultant fee'.

Today, we have many false religions but more importantly when we go to war, we have a different kind of prophet. The secular prophets that speak in the major think tanks of our day. The Rand's the AEI's the Council on Foreign Relations and other major defense industry connected and funded consultants. In the days of the kings, prophets were the kings consultants. So today the prophets of corporatism will always prophecy in a way that suits their own interests best and invariably, that means more wars. Wars mean contracts - contracts mean dollars. Not much has really changed. In the ancient days the worshiped the bull-god baal, today, we worship the bull 'god' (greed and covetousness) of wall street.

But in the last days we see pretty much the same thing, only this time on a global scale.

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For 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.
(Rev 16:13-14)
Again we see the theme of false religion going forth to entice kings to a war that will destroy them. The great day of God is the 'Day of the Lord' or the battle or Armageddon when a host of the world's armies head to Israel to destroy her. The false religion and false prophet of the day are there to get the world to go to war, gather the world's armies and then attack Israel.

Today, in America we see the spirit of Islam rising. Muslims now are a powerful force in our national security establishment and weather you wish to accept it or not, many of our foreign and security policies are dictated (the correct word for it) out of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It did not take a week After the King of Saudi Arabia threatened to drop Tow missiles to America's terrorist army in Syria that the US military did just that. America has forsaken the religion of Jesus Christ and now takes orders from those who follow the Koran or baphomet or the devil or as I like to say, the religion of ABC (anything but Christ). It was these US armed and backed anti-government forces that had put a blockade around Aleppo, starving out the Christians there.

This is what America has become and this is indeed the 'change' that Barak Obama has given America. I don't want to blame him exclusively, the system behind him is far more to blame. But he is the titular head of that system and cannot escape accountability

What is sad is that now, America has lost her way. She is in far greater danger than even her leaders realize, as deceiving spirits, money, bribery, satanism, Islam and other demonic factors are going to drive the nation to a major military, economic and homeland disaster. Her policies are like a man behind a wheel with a guy on the passenger side with a shot gun telling him to go left into a ravine, a guy with a machine gun in the backseat telling him to go right, into 'mafia alley' where no one returns alive and a guy next to him with a grenade telling him to stop or they will all die. Different devils telling them to do different things and none of then are going to take him anywhere but to trouble.

We have fallen into a trap of our own making as greed covetousness, perversions, licentiousness and other devils and evils have taken the soul of this once great republic and now our policies no longer make sense to anyone but a madman.

Yes, insanity (more here) when it appears in empires is the last stage before destruction.

Thousands Of Christians Flee ISIS Assault

It's a city with a rich Christian heritage. The people there still speak Aramaic, the language Christ spoke.

India: Church Attacked - Believers Hospitalized

Several Christians were hospitalised and others forced to reconvert to Hinduism, after a village church in India’s central Chhattisgarh state was attacked by Hindu hardliners.

The Christians from the Independent Pentecostal Church in Kohkameta were attacked during their Sunday morning service on 25 October, two days after villagers had reportedly gathered together to conspire to end all Christian activities in the village.

The Christians were dragged from the church and beaten with sticks. Several were rendered unconscious and others forced to sign pieces of paper declaring they would no longer practise Christianity.

One of the Christians, who wished to remain anonymous out of concern for his safety, told World Watch Monitor what happened.

“There were 35 people in the church, including children. While the prayer service was going on, some young boys and villagers came with sticks and began to beat the believers. They dragged them out and beat them mercilessly,” he said. - Continues At World Watch Monitor

State Of Homeless In America

I know I posted this earlier this year (at least I think I did!) but will repost this again. It describes many of the issues with Homelessness today, where there are successes and where there are failures.

This is a very goo report and those of you who have a heart for the less fortunate will learn quite a bit from this report.

DOD Endangering Christians Around World With Subversion of Missionaries

I hope you get a chance to read this. This is so pivotal to understanding why so many nations persecute Christians. Our intelligence agencies are busy subverting Christian around the world to do the devils work, rather than God's. Once they get caught doing the things they should not, the nation they are working in get paranoid and start rounding up Christians.

Brothers and sisters, this is why I have had so many problems. I know what these guy are up to and would not sit silent while the sheep (many of whom are babes in Christ) were abused by these deceitful workmen who work, not for the Prince of Peace, but for the world's number one war machine. 

This is why I spoke about what was happening in China before and alluded to this kind of activity. Brothers, I simply cannot get with that. The job of Christian is to GET INTO THE KINGDOM, not get on board with the Kingdoms of this world, which are under the control of the prince of this world (satan).

Finally someone is talking about this issue and if it broke from The Intercept, it has semi-government approval for release to the masses.

This is one of the semi-official 'leak' sites that are out there.

Ignorance And Indifference: The World's Fragmenting Conflicts

The head of the ICG  writes this poignant piece on the real cause of so much of the conflicts today and why they continue and spread.

One of the things I have always liked about the ICG is that they look for peaceful solution, talks, dialogue and they never give up hope that some kind of peaceful solution can be found. they recognize that it's the ordinary people, the poor and powerless who bear the brunt of war, not the rich and powerful.

You know, I can remember one CIA guy ranting and raving at me saying I was too 'negative' and by way of insinuation blasting Christians like me for being the same way for not supporting war and leaders in the US  Intel community's false prophet network who call for it.

I admit, I am very negative... that war can solve anything long term except perhaps the world's, as many see it, growing population problem. War kills people - mostly poor and mostly people of color. You want to solve the population problem and get rid of the Blacks and Arabs? Start a war. No need for Auschwitz when a cluster bomb and a RPG will do the same thing.

But these National Security guys  they make their bread and from war and fanning the flames of conflict, selling arms to terrorists, stirring up ethnic and religious hatred to 'divide and conquer'. To them this is 'positive'. But to decry these evil policies and the spirit behind them is 'negative',  "...get on board with the narrative" they insinuate, - "why do you have to be different?

Then they get swarms of FBI and DOD counter-intel people to break into my home, follow me around, monitor who I talk to, scan my computers and almost certainly those of my family members, get my foreign born neighbors who are non-citizens to 'cooperate' with them to spy on me (a military veteran) so they can keep their green cards. This is the kind of crap your government does while cops gun down Black kids in the street, lab scientists place drug samples into test tubes of innocent people to fill up prisons and they 'just don't have time' to deal with those problems. They are too busy investigating bloggers for writing things that run contrary to their war and intel agency narratives.

...and they call Putin and Xi oppressive!!

This is one reason I will have nothing more to do with America's intelligence services, not even knowingly keep such people as casual acquaintances. There is something fundamentally wrong with so many of them  - the way they think and interact with others is completely off kilter. They think a friend is someone to spy on and set up so they can show how 'loyal' they are to a reprobate system and get more money in their paycheck. They will sit in Church on Sunday and go off to some far off country and set up a Church leader or arm some Christian killing terrorist on Monday.

I am positive in this - that seeking peaceful resolution to conflict is better than reaching for a gun or missile battery the first time someone cuts you a side-wards glance. This has been and is America's fundamental problem. It's the war mentality and the National Security Paranoia game. But this goes to a whole range of issues that run to the heart of why our nation is in such trouble today. These intel and covert agencies have to justify themselves and to do that they have start wars to keep their budgets. You may not want to believe and accept it but that is one reason the US has gone on a full frontal assault on places like Ukraine and Syria as well as the failed attempts in Hong Kong and Egypt. So when this or that conflict occurs, they are chomping a the bit to go because that is how they get budget increases.

It's those 'supplemental' budget increases that keep the contractors in their Audi's, BMW's and Tesla's.

Please don't misunderstand what I say here. Troops who are deployed need to  be supported and that support costs money. I am saying that the system as it is currently organized is built around starting conflicts to keep war and intel budgets as high as possible, even to the point of one day gutting Promises made to America's retiree's. You can see that one day, the DOD will win and granny will be out on the street rummaging through the trash for dinner and if your over 50, that granny will probably be you.

So I applaud the writer of this piece. It's time for this nation to get past its war and conflict addiction and come up with rational policies that benefit the nation and the world's people first rather than Lockheed and General Dynamics.

America cannot afford 'war crazy' anymore. She must learn the sanity of peace or be destroyed like all empires of the past who lost their minds to the paranoid psychosis of war.

Michigan Bank Called  Black Loans, Destroyed Businesses Suit Alleges

I think I have talked many times about how many in the financial world were using their power specifically to destroy Black America. This looks like it could be one of those cases.

In America -  at least in many places, it's still a crime to be Black...

...and if the cops don't get you, the lab scientist will.

Important Prayer Requests

Today, I want to take some time for us all to really pray for the situation in the Middle East. As you may or may not know, as I suggested last week, the US is lining up the regions powers for talks about the situation in the Middle East. Even the Iranians have been invited and have accepted. Beyond this ray of hope, the situation looks grim and all indications are that WWIII is just around the corner if something tangible is not agreed to by all the major powers. While the US beats the war drums and talks of sending in combat troops to Iraq and Syria, the Iraqi government has not requested them and looks like they may not be welcome. It is not clear to me that US troops will actually be deployed or if this is nothing more than posturing before negotiations take place by the DOD. Meanwhile the US is angering others, including the Turks. I say this again, please understand what this may mean... WWIII could be started if the situation in Iraq and Syria is not stabilized. I strongly suspect that certain people in the DOD are hoping to stage an incident in Syria so that Russia kills US troops and a pretext for a multi-billion dollar invasion can be had to bolster DOD spending in times of increasing budgetary austerity. So I beg each of you to take some time out and really pray for these talks and that something good comes from them that...
1. The terrorists and heavily armed militia's can be demobilized so that the the regions millions of refugee's can come home.
2. That something tangible and effective is done before winter sets in
3. That the US changes policy and ceases to covertly arm these terrorist groups, no matter what name their narrative has given them.
4. That Russia and Putin can narrow their efforts to counter terrorism and discuss a future in Syria with a view that in a few years, after the situation and Syria has stabilized, Assad can step aside and the next government begins careful but measurable steps at liberalizing its political system.
5. That the Gulf Sheikdoms in the region who have been behind so much of the terrorism either get on board with constructive engagement in the region or they are held accountable for their terrorist financing

I want to stress that this situation can really get ugly if the powers cannot come up with some kind of solution in the coming weeks and that if we pray for the region and remember those of our brothers in Christ who have been severely persecuted, God will surely hear our prayers. So in the name of Christ Jesus, I ask,. beg and beseech you all to pray fervently for the region and its people and for the success of these talks.

Source: UNHCR

Since these talks are about to start - I will post the last section of a Middle East Update I did early this week. I hope someone somewhere will pass this on to those in a position to get it where it could do some good as has happened with this site before.

(begin excerpt)

What Can Be Done?

If I were sitting in the White House or advising the President the first thing I would do is try and come up with a framework for the region that all the major players can live with - one that puts people first and the oil and gas pipeline's second and overthrowing the regions regimes completely off the table. It is these attempts that have created this crisis. Here are some broad strokes.

First off - the US must cease to arm any more Islamic fighters. They are destabilizing and experience has shown that they cannot be controlled. At least for a short period of time, Assad must be given what he needs to stabilize his nation. It is not a crime for a National leader to defend his country  from terrorists and those who seek to violently overthrow it. In fact, it is any leaders first and highest duty. It is no crime for him to fight these entities the Americans are arming, the criminal act lies with the Americans and their material support to terrorism and their deliberate policy (and it was and is... wait till you see what they do to Europe) of political and social destabilization. Destabilization efforts only do one thing. Destabilize. You cannot govern effectively nor build a thousand mile Pipeline in a war torn region and keep it working, no matter how many foreign policy wonks claim you can. That is nothing more than a pipeline to nowhere.

Second a look and finding a away to entice and encourage people to return to their homes, once the destabilizing influence of these Islamic militia's is done away with. People must know it is safe to return and that cannot happen until ISIS, the FSA as well as these other militia's who also came into being to fight them have been demobilized. Dropping more arms to them is counterproductive to this goal. Getting people to come back to Syria (and by extension Iraq) should be the number one goal of any policy. To the degree that other interests have superseded the genuine needs of the regions people is the exact same degree that the current international system of governance under American leadership has failed and a new one with new leaders is desperately needed. Needed for the millions of refugee's here and future refugee's that will be made so as a direct result of the malevolent influences that are destabilizing and destroying the region. The only thing American policy has done is help create a Terrorist World Order.

Third and here we come to the very crux of the problem is that some kind of deal must be reached with regards to transit routes for future pipelines in the region. This will be difficult but not impossible. The first step is that all sides must stop saying 'no' and start to say, 'OK, I'm listening' as to how a deal could work.

First one must understand the reason for the pipelines. It is two fold - make the Gas rich Gulf Sheikdoms lots of money selling gas to Europe. Second, it's to allow Europe to be less dependent in Russian energy. Naturally this is something Russia doesn't like and will fight one way or another. So what is the solution?

First of all the regions players must all come to the table to talk about all of these issues - one is pretty much dependent on the other - no one is going to build so much as an outhouse while its swarms with heavily armed Islamic militia's. So one an agreement can  be reached on the topics above is the key first step - the next phase is the gas sector. Who gets to build it? Where will it go? Who pays for it? and who gets the profits? My view for some kind of solution would look something like this.

Once things are stabilized - Build the pipeline, let it transit Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. Or go via Iran and Syria. They key is Syria. Assad said 'no' before this time he may say yes IF he and his Russian friends get a percentage of the profits in return for certain security guarantee's. The Gulf sheikdoms will balk for sure but one has to consider this most carefully. Russia has now expended considerable effort time and money into the region and while the players may not want to deal with Russia on that level, the geopolitical reality is clear- the Russians are the new reality bearing down on the Arab Nations proxy army with the missiles of the Su-34, inside a client state whose geography demands that you deal with him. In geopolitics money, force and harsh realities govern - subjective right and wrong don't signify. Russia now must be dealt with and she is not going want to be cut out of any deal and thus limit her geopolitical power over Europe's energy markets. No, the time to think that these powers can do an end run around Russia is past. The choice now is two fold. To wait for some illusory victory by their rebels to take Syria (not going to happen) drench the region in more blood just to make a point that they don't like Assad and want him gone and find new ways of trying to oust him.  Keep in mind that all of these cost money rather than earn it. And I need not get into this very important fact. The IMF has projected that Saudi Arabia will be broke in 5 years. This grim outlook also is good for Oman and Bahrain. You heard correctly, This new King and his aggressive polices are bankrupting the wealthy oil Kingdom. The actual IMF report is here. The other choice is to let the regions powers consider that half of something is better than all of nothing and begin to negotiate in earnest on natural gas exports and transit routes.

I think we need to forget about the idea that these Arab nations are just rolling in money. They are, but not for much longer if the price of energy stays low and they keep spending it on really dumb policies - like invading Yemen for starters. As an aside, this new King in Saudi Arabia may not last long. Eight of his brothers who are also princes want him gone and they appear to have powerful backing.

I say this for reasons that are very important. Regional  instability can spread and spread where you never thought it would and install people who can be considerably worse. You cannot war game and adequately prepare in an environment of constant instability. You can only react blindly to arising disasters and often you do so, in such a manner that you often act blindly against your own best interest.

The point here is this - Gulf sheikdoms and others can use revenue. Lots of it and right now the imperfect solution is to sit down, smoke the peace pipe and have a pow-wow with all of the regions players; the Turks, Israeli's Syrians, Omani's Qatari's, Saudi's Russians Iranians and yes, even the Kurds, who could turn out to be deal-spoilers if they don't get something tangible. Come up with a deal that all can live with. Everyone will have to give up something in order to gain something. There may be some long faces when its all said and done but if you can keep a credible and desirable 'carrot' dangling in front of everyone, they are likely to stick to the deal and drag those in their own camps who will oppose it along with them. 

They key here is to get them to the table and tell them that 'no' is not acceptable. This can  be done and you know what? The regions energy resources could even become a source of regional cooperation rather than regional conflict. That the money now being spend to destroy Mesopotamia could be used to build it.

The problem I think is going to be the Saudi's and probably the Qatari's  who have been  very close to the Americans and who have purchased many of her political leaders and other key US figures. No one can trust the Americans to do the right thing because no one knows who is putting money into whose coffers and to what end it went there for. This in my view is one if the critical problems of US foreign policy. And why it has failed in recent years and has shown increasing inconsistency and moral depravity. It's for sale to any terrorist, human trafficker or drug lord with copious amounts of money.

This is why I am not at all certain that this region can ever be peaceful as long as America sits at the pinnacle of Global power. Unless she can change her ways and remember her roots, the Middle East will be better off without American meddling. I say this caring deeply for this country and its traditions, but knowing that Lady Liberty has been kidnapped and is being held in an undisclosed location, chained to a chair in a basement and the devil is now wearing her disguise and running this nation...

..right into the ground.
(end excerpt)

I also would like you to keep in mind that there are some very powerful demonic spirits that operate in this area. They are some of the strongest that are in the kingdom of darkness. This is an issue I have written a couple of papers on. One of these powerful angels who was active at the time, was able to withstand the powerful Archangel Michael for 21 days (Dan 10:13) and in the last days powerful spirits located around the Euphrates will kill a great many people (Rev 9:14). We who know our God understand that many of the things happening in our world are spiritually discerned and that often there is a spiritual impetus behind so many of the world's events. What the world fails to understand, along with so many of the world's Christians, is that mankind's actions have a direct and measurable consequence in this world and in the Spiritual world as well. They don't understand or believe that God is sovereign and will allow horrible disasters to befall us and our world as long as we choose the evil over the good. When we consistently do that, he allows these powerful demons more and more power over our lives, money, systems and governments. But I would be remiss if I did not give you some warning.

When you do spiritual battle against spirits with this kind of power, you can expect spiritual attacks upon you personally. New temptations, new challenges could easily arise in your life. What the devil is doing is trying to find a way to hinder your prayers because a praying saint is like a fleet of stealth bombers armed with a payload of bunker busting bombs aimed at his kingdom. He knows that but most Christians don't. This is a key aspect of Spiritual warfare when you enter the battle, the devil will start aiming at you. I give you fair warning. I know how this works I have been on the front lines for some time now and have been attacked in many, many ways. I know who is ultimately behind them - the devil and why - I pray and minister to Christians - and others, including world leaders who do from time to time read what 'the religious lunatic from Maryland' has to say (yes they really do!). I also say that when you begin more and more of this kind of warfare, you will be like any warrior, promoted in God's kingdom deployed at times and he will often remove threats and trouble in our lives that could cause undo burdens on our work. Often it could be things you care a great deal about but that God see's as a hindrance. You are not alone in the battle. God looks out for his own but you will be in battle.

 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: - (1Ti 1:18-19)

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(2Co 10:3)

Next I ask you to pray for  the situations in both East and West Africa as each are dealing with terror groups, Al Shabbab and Boko Haram respectively. Pray that authorities can continue to have successes against these  groups. Also especially for the situation with the Al Shabbab group, pray that more of their members defect and leave the group which more and more seems to be happening. Also as you pray, please remember that in Somalia these are mostly children who have nothing - absolutely nothing and many joined the group not fully understanding what they were really doing. Pray that more of their members give up the violence of these groups and become a magnet so that others leave as well. But also pray that the economic destitution that is causing so many to join comes to an end. Pray that the regions governments develop the tools they need to stop terror attacks before they occur and are able to seriously disrupt the activities of these groups. These groups are very active and their attacks are often not reported widely to us.

Pray for European leaders. They need prayer to decide how to deal humanely with all of these refugee's but not allow this influx to do what others are hoping it will, destabilize and Islamicize Europe. Also pray that the Xenophobia will come to and end as well as the hate-attacks on these people. Pray that a wise, humane policy emerges that also recognizes the real danger of unchecked migration of culturally, racially and religiously different people in such numbers and in such a short period of time. Please pray especially for Angela Merkel who has been 'compromised' for many years now. pray that she can break free and implement policies that benefit the people of Europe as well as all of those who come to Europe who seek peaceful coexistence.

I ask you to specifically pray for President Obama (and put aside your partisanship), Chancellor Merkel, President Putin, President Assad, President Erdogan, President Masum, President Rouhani, King Abdullah II  and President Salam. Please also pray for the Presidents/leaders of the Gulf Kingdoms as well as the King and leadership of Saudi Arabia King Salman as these talks begin.

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
(1Ti 2:1-6)
Please pray for the Catholic Church and that it can get itself together and get back to Biblical basics and not catchy homilies designed to undermine the basic teachings of scripture to be loved by the world and the chronically unrepentant. A Church like that can't save souls, it can just make people spiritually comfortable on their way to hell. Keep in mind that what many are finding is that while this Pope may be popular with a reprobate world, it is not the popularity that is filling Church pews.  Christ called us to Biblical faithfulness, not pop culture religiosity. Pray that God begins to move apostate and evil men from positions of leadership wherever they are found in Christendom and that a thorough house cleaning takes place from the pews and pulpits of the smallest Protestant church, to the largest Catholic Cathedral. 

Brothers, this I know - God's people need to be praying more about the things happening in our Churches and our world. We need to spend less time with the 'bless me Lord' prayers and whining to God and spend some time in Spiritual battle on our knees. Much can be wrought with prayer but it can only be so wrought when people actually pray.

In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
(Phi 4:6-7)

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore of sound mind, and be sober unto prayer:
(1Pe 4:7)

with all prayer and supplication praying at all seasons in the Spirit, and watching thereunto in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints,
(Eph 6:18)

Continue stedfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving; withal praying for us also, that God may open unto us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds;
(Col 4:2-3)

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
(Jam 5:16)

It is my hope that this site and my analysis has and continues to really help God's people understand what is really happening in our word, divides the fact from the fiction/propaganda and gives you perspective that is both informative, spiritually discerning with an eye towards the return of our Lord and the beginning of a new Godly age under the rulership of Christ.

Grace and peace to all of you in Christ Jesus!!

No Isolated Case: Cops Assaulting Kids

The Center For Public Integrity does what it does best, look into key issues facing the public and their welfare. This time they look at the recent incident with a kid thrown across the room by a cop. Did  you know that in one incident the kid they abused was autistic? The report is quite revealing.

You know what I see? I see a system and nation where violence is used far too often. I see a society that has been deadened to violence. More and more people just don't seem to care. They are bombarded with it on TV and movies and as time wears on, they become very immune to it.

Violence should be the very last resort a police officer uses, not the first... especially with an 11 year old. 

But I also see this. The cops will treat a black kid in an underprivileged district a lot worse than he will treat one in a rich white one. I see many of today's schools as being 'prison preparatory schools'. Many of them have fences around them so you can't get out like a penitentiary.

The Latest Russian Air Strikes

The ISW has their usual great maps on activity in the region. I would post the map but their copyright policy has subtly shifted in recent months. (the old blog had no copyright notice, the actual site does). So while everyone else is posting it, I hesitate to. But I can link to the map here.

Being President is a tough job... you often have to defend and implement policies you yourself may find loathsome and there is nothing you can do about it.

Meanwhile the DOD is calling Russian influence 'malign' and refuses to de-conflict airspace problems over Syria.

Pretty sad isn't it.? Someone comes in to destroy terrorists and the US gets mad and drops the terrorists tons and tons of ammo. Folks they don't know what they are doing they are so incompetent.

The good news is that America's (I should say the NeoCons)  options are so limited that they have to resort to name calling, like any ill-bred and emotionally challenged 8 year old. They don't have a policy that can work and all can see that. So they call the other guy names. No mention of constructive engagement with Russia, no mention of cleaning up the terrorists. No, just demonize the Russians rather than ISIS who are enslaving women and kids, chopping off heads and blowing up just about anything with any real historical, cultural and religious significance. Yes, I mean the ISIS that the Russians are trying to stop and that the US Trained and built up for years (in numerous carefully orchestrated 'mistakes')  More here. All well planned and coordinated 'errors' advertised as such for narrative control (propaganda) in the US while ISIS brandishes US arms, training and resupply while raping women and beheading children after they bolted on to the scene. This is why the US is really upset. It looks like Putin just blew the lid off of a major US Masonic-Satanic-Foreign Government inspired operation. I mean what are they thinking about dropping ammo to these terrorists? Who are their victims?

Sure.... just what the region needs, tones of new ammunition going to who knows what heavily armed Islamic militia. I just get the impression that this administration (or the NeoCons who have hijacked Obama's Foreign policy) don't care one whit about the millions of people who live there. Putin is trying to get rid of these groups and the US wants to keep arming them. More here.

Let me ask you a simple point blank question. What would you call a heavily armed group of Islamic fanatics who were trying to violently overthrow the US government?  I will tell you. We call them terrorists. Yet we have the same kinds of people trying to over throw the Government of Syria, with open US help. What do you call this? I will tell you what I call it and what you would call it if it were directed at America. It's word that starts with a 'T'.

I have not forgotten that Syrians are people too and they have aright to decide who rules over them and should not be terrorized by groups seeking to destroy their country. I am no big fan of Assad but his regime still has a lot of support throughout the nation and was a darn site better than many of the region's other governments, including those whom the US has been best buddies with (KSA).  Granted polling at this time is going to be highly subjective and often will be twisted to fit political agenda's but the reality is that even after years of warfare, Assad still has considerable support. Besides, put yourself in the shoes of an average Syrian for a moment. Would you want to reward those who just overthrew your government violently - and put such people in power whose name you don't even know and whose agenda and often even their faces are hidden from you and are and have been blowing up your country, neighborhood and homes? Would you want that to happen to America or such people ruling over you?

This is what America is doing to Syrians with their support to these Islamic terrorists. Moderate Terrorists or hard core terrorists. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist. There are no 'moderate' car bombs, artillery shells or canisters of poison gas;  no moderate swords to chop off heads or moderate rape camps; and I never heard a corpse praise the 'moderation' of the person who made it so cold.

America needs to get real and stop playing 'Master of the Universe' and start to cooperate with the regions powers Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Israel  and yes...including Russia and Iran to come up with an effective solution that benefits the regions people first, and the oil companies last. You had your chance to fix things unilaterally... with the result of 4 million refugee's (UN's count and they have to house, clothe and feed them) and now they are breaking the borders of Europe.. severed heads litter the landscape with women and children who have been raped repeatedly by these terrorists that always seem to get hold of American arms. That is the result of American unilateralism. Disaster.

If you really want to know where the world's number one malign influence is, head on over to the Pentagon and certain members of the House and Senate (of both parties) men and women who are too arrogant, stupid and evil to realize that they have made a horrible mistake and take corrective action. She is too proud, too arrogant, and too haughty to change course. The blood of the Syrian people are little more than a pathway to show the world 'who is boss'.

This is not a slam at the men in women in uniform or even many in America's leadership. It's a swipe and the evil influence that has taken over the DOD and has wrecked the Middle East and wants to make sure it stays wrecked... teeming with crazies with Tow missiles, machine guns and Korans and a sack full of severed heads.

If you want to know why the US is losing its empire and the world is shifting away from us, look to people like Ashton Carter and other NeoCons who have destroyed America's credibility, diplomatic clout and yes, even our military power in policies that were so dumb and damaging, they could not be worse if the were formulated by the our strategic foes and this dear readers is something that this writer simply cannot rule out. Given the copious amount of FOREIGN money that gets laundered into our political system (millions of dollars) this possibility is a very real and frightening one (the nature of money laundering is to make it difficult to determine the origin of the money). This would be destruction of the US military and economic empire from within. Brothers, the real story on foreign money heading into the US has not been told. That info is part of FinCen's (they track illegal cash flows) purview and those who try and talk about it with the data they collect, don't live long.

So don't let your patriotism become a blindfold that foreign powers use against you as they destroy our nation from within. I don't say these things to harm the nation or to give undue praise to others, but to help put a semblance of sanity back into this nations policies. That can't be done until Americans cease to use the US flag for a blindfold and the TV has a political hallucinogen and they decide to turn off the NFL and turn on their brains.

Big and horrible changes are coming if Americans can't get their minds right and get a clue and get out of the political stupid mode that keeps then trapped in this two-party system. They just don't have a clue as to just what is really at stake. Because if these NeoCons and the people who are backing them get their way, your soft, comfortable lifestyle and for most of you, it will mean the homes you live in too... they will all be a thing of the past.

Ethiopian Village Church Attacked

A church in a village 130km west of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, has been attacked three times recently by suspected animists angered over their evangelism efforts.

On 30 August, a mob killed one Christian and injured around 30 others during the Sunday service. Two days later, a day after the murdered Christian’s funeral, a group of men strangled a female member of the congregation and left her for dead. Then, on 27 Sep., church members were again attacked as they returned home after church. - More At  the World Watch Monitor Site

Congo: Islamists Threaten African Nation

(World Watch Monitor 12 Oct 2015) In Africa, it isn’t only in the west that Islamist insurgencies are posing a security threat. While attention has been focused on Nigeria’s radical Islamist group Boko Haram (whose attacks have spread to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger), a relatively unknown militant group has intensified attacks in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), raising fears of the emergence of a new jihadist organisation in central Africa.

The vast country of DRC borders Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania to its east. A group of militants originally rooted in a rebel movement to overthrow Uganda’s government and replace it with an Islamist fundamentalist state, but forced to re-locate over the border into DRC, has been carrying out murders of local people, far from the attention of most of the world’s major media.

Attacks including murder, looting, abduction and rape are carried out on an almost weekly basis. At least 19 people lost their lives in four separate attacks in September alone, according to local sources. On 26 Sep., two people were killed as their truck was ambushed near Kokola village. Five days earlier, militants fired on a truck between Eringeti and Kokola. The passengers managed to flee unharmed, but the truck was looted and set on fire. On 15 Sep., three people, including two women and a community leader, were killed in Kokola. Three others, including a police officer, were killed near Oicha; they went out to hunt on 5 Sep. but never returned. Their bodies were found three weeks later, beheaded and decaying. Over the same period, 11 people have also been massacred by suspected militants in various other locations in the Beni area.

Beni is a predominantly Christian area, as is most of the DRC, but Independent Catholic News quotes reports that have stated that, within a few years, the number of Muslims in eastern DRC has risen from 1% to 10%.

According to the 2014 Journal of International Organisations Studies, 28 of the 44 mosques (63%) in the Medina region of DRC, about 50 miles from Beni, were erected between 2005 and 2012.

“There were very few Muslims in eastern DR Congo until Islamic missionaries declared sharia over their claimed caliphate between Beni, Eringeti and the border of Uganda,” said a local church leader, who wished to remain anonymous... Continues On World Watch Monitor Site

According to the UN's report on this the attacks have similar patterns.

The attacks against the civilian population in the territory of Beni were executed
in  a  systematic  manner,  with  extreme  brutality.  The  investigations  of  the
UNJHRO  revealed  that  the  perpetrators  indiscriminately  targeted  men,  women
and  children.  This  modus  operandi  allowed  them  to  kill  the  maximum  of
individuals  within  a  very  short  timeframe.  The  assailants  were  divided  into
different mobile groups of six to several dozens of individuals and used various
methods  that  slow  down  alerts.  The  majority  of  the  attacks  were  effectively
carried  out  at  sunset,  when  the  population  was  returning  from  working  in  the
fields. Most of the victims were killed by machetes, axes and hammers in order to
avoid making noise. 

Information collected by UNJHRO has revealed that the assailants mainly struck
the head of their victims, giving them no chances of survival. A health practitioner
of the territory of Beni, who treated dozens of victims of these attacks, declared to
the UNJHRO that: "When they strike, they are looking for the occipital section of
the head. They hit with the hammer and, as soon as the person is on the ground,
they try to crush the head or cut the neck of the victim afterwards". Many victims
were thus decapitated, some of them after having being tied up. The investigations
led by the UNJHRO have also revealed that, in some cases, the assailants used
firearms against victims who were trying to flee, most probably with the intention
of killing them as quickly as possible and preventing them from raising the alarm. 

According to information obtained by the UNJHRO, many attacks were carried
out with the participation of the women and children – boys as well as girls – who
were accompanying the assailants. According to testimonies from the survivors,
while  the  men  were  murdering  civilians,  the  women  and  children  looted  the
houses, and took with them food and livestock that was easy to transport. Some
testimonies revealed that, in some cases, children were forced to slit the throat of
the  victims  who  had  first  been  neutralized  by  ADF  combatants.  The  assailants
burned  down  several  villages  after  the  attacks,  and  some  victims  were  burned
alive in their house.

On four occasions, the assailants distributed numerous flyers, in English and in
Swahili, in the localities of Oicha, Mayimoya, Beni and Eringeti, to warn about
future  attacks.  In  one  of  these  flyers,  it  was  written  in  Swahili:  "You,  the
population, we are going to kill you because you have provoked us too much. The
same goes for the FARDC with whom we used to live without any problems. (...)
Don’t be surprised to see us killing children, women, elderly (...). In the name of
Allah, we will not leave you alone." This demonstrates the premeditated nature of
the attacks, presented to the civilian population as retaliation following military
operations led by the FARDC, as well as against certain locality leaders who had
stopped obeying the ADF.  -

A Word For the Discouraged

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

(Psa 40:1-4)

Blessed is the man or woman who waits upon the Lord. Indeed, blessed is that man, woman or child.  When I read that passage this AM I thought of Jeremiah and how they put him in a horrible pit.

Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire. Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin; Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house, and spake to the king, saying, My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is: for there is no more bread in the city. Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die. So Ebedmelech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took thence old cast clouts and old rotten rags, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah. And Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, Put now these old cast clouts and rotten rags under thine armholes under the cords. And Jeremiah did so. So they drew up Jeremiah with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.
(Jer 38:6-13)
I always remember what the Psalmist says about the righteous too.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
(Psa 34:19)

Brothers, to those of you who are now truly afflicted and having a hard time. Know that if you keep faith with God, and don't depart from him and are not misdirected onto the paths of falsehood and lies, God will surely be there for you in your hour of need. God is good and will not leave you to your enemies.

The devil is very busy and is working night and day to destroy God's people. So many of you who are going through hard times, know that God knows what you are going through. You are not alone. Men, women and children who serve Christ around the world are facing similar if not worse travails. Our job is to bear those troubles with our God and be like Job who went through them with faith and determination. Job knew sorrow, he knew pain. He lost everything, literally everything and yet maintained his faith.

Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together! For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up. For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me. Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder? Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg? The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat. Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for! Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off! Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
(Job 6:2-10)

Brothers, God had allowed all of this affliction on Job so that the devil could test him. The key I have always remembered with the story of Job is that God never revealed to Job the 'why' of his suffering. He never knew the why of it. He only knew that it was happening to him and he did not like it. But Job maintained his ways and did not depart from his God as his wife demanded (Job 2:9).

Job's determination to remain faithful to his God can be laid out in one of my favorite passages in scripture. It is not a well known one, but it describes the kind of faith that will get a man or woman into the Kingdom of heaven.

Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

(Job 13:15-16)

Even if the Lord allows him to be killed, Job would not depart from his God. This is the stubborn faith that saints who are now being martyred must have. It is the kind of faith that God demands of us, for was it not Christ who said...

And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
(Mar 8:34-36)

Christ is talking about the eternal life that is in him and him alone. Job's travails in this respect was a foreshadow of the mindset and attitude that Christians in these times must endure. He did not fully understand why he went through hell. We don't either, but the scriptures have given us some pretty big hints. I think this is especially true for those whom God has truly called (let the reader discern what I mean by that) into key places in ministry, they know that they are marked men.

For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised. Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
(1Co 4:9-13)

Brothers, this is how a true Apostle lives. He lives humbly and has made himself a fool for Christ. This is the mindset that all of us true believers (disciples) should have and remember that God may call anyone of us to suffer for his names sake. Jeremiah had to, Job had to, Paul had to and the model for all Christians had to, that being Jesus Christ

So brothers and sisters, these are difficult times and being such we must prepare our souls and minds to operate in them. The Bible gives us many, many admonitions about these times. We must heed them.

But I ask that each of you get before the Lord and seek him for understanding. I know I have tried my best to give it to you as best as I can. Not just with repeated Bible versus over and over again to show how 'spiritual' I am, but with perspective on our times and then lining that up with what God has to say about them. Not just prophecy, but the morality and spiritual condition of our churches, nation and our world. This is why I spend so much time on world events, to help give you a real look at what is happening and not just the US propaganda line that is so often filled with demonic lies and deceitful omissions.

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable,
and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”

George Orwell

This is what our government and governments around the world have been doing. They have been giving us political lies. I do what I can to expose them. For that, I am often reviled. I am unmoved. Why? Because I know the times I live in and those who revile me don't. No matter how many Bible versus they misquote or how many 'Thus saith the Lord's..." they utter in blasphemous slander of the Lord's name. The days are evil and evil men are in high places in Christendom deceiving and being deceived.

When The Bride Of Christ Becomes A Whore For The State

But it is exactly as the Prophet Daniel said it would be in the very last days, especially with regards to Bible Prophecy.

 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
  Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
  And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
  Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. - Daniel 12:9ff

The world -  what is it doing? Doing wickedly. They don't understand these things and never will. It has not been given for to them to understand. Those who have placed their faith in  Christ and are born of the Spirit, they understand it or at least they have been given by God what is needed for this spiritual understanding.

And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
(Mat 13:10-13)

Two groups, one understands and the other does not. Many of the things I have been telling you insiders are not for general consumption. It should not be posted on the internet for all to see. The devil's imps have abused the data on this site for evil purposes. Others have mocked and railed against me. But like fine jewels and bars of Gold, you don't put it on your front porch. So brothers, understand that at times the things I am telling you may not always seem as 'spiritual 'as you may like. I am not trying to be 'Mr. Spiritual' here. I am a Christian writer and watchman and at times watching world events means I have to talk about world events and not try and impute spiritual meanings in things that are blatantly obvious or that may have no real relevance to the topic at hand. I am not trying to win 'brownie points' for over-spiritualizing many of the mundane, though geopolitically significant events. Many writers and bloggers feel they have to do that on the net. I do not and I am not. I do the best I can and at times, people wonder where the spiritual meat is in some of my pieces. Sometimes there is none, there is background, food for thought and words of wisdom to help you better discern. I don't know about you, but I am innately suspicious of men who always have new a revelation from God every other week and always seem to work hard to sound really spiritual about things that have little real meaning in that manner.

So brothers, let us rejoice in our God who has made up his mind to redeem those who love him ad let us seek that divine wisdom and understanding that Daniel foretold would be a characteristic of the last days saints. He has made a promise and will keep it. Let none of is turn back or get too discouraged in the coming troubles.

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
(Dan 12:2-3)

God is with us, brothers! I exhort all of you to be encouraged and if you are feeling a little low, you know what I do? I get in my car go for a drive and thank the Lord, praise his name and make a point of not asking him for anything! Don't be discouraged! Discouragement is of the devil. Let me leave you with this little story that I think may help so many of you who are feeling a little low.

Discouragement - A Tool of the Devil
By: Author Unknown

Once upon a time it was announced that the devil
was going out of business and would sell all
his equipment to those who were willing to pay the price.

On the big day of the sale,
all his tools were attractively displayed.
There were Envy, Jealousy, Hatred, Malice, Deceit, Sensuality, Pride,
Idolatry, and other implements of evil display. Each of the tools was
Marked with its own price tag.

Over in the corner by itself was a harmless looking,
wedge-shaped tool very much worn, but still it bore a
higher price than any of the others.
Someone asked the devil what it was, and he answered,
"That is Discouragement."
The next question came quickly,
"And why is it priced so high even though
it is plain to see that it is worn more than these others?"

Because replied the devil,
"It is more useful to me than all these others.
I can pry open and get into a man's heart with that
when I cannot get near him with any other too
Once I get inside, I can use him in whatever way
suits me best. It is worn well because
I use it on everybody I can,
and few people even know it belongs to me."

This tool was priced so high that no one could buy it, and to this day it has never been sold.
It still belongs to the devil,
and he still uses it on mankind.

The Grace of the most High and Christ Jesus be upon all who love our Lord Jesus Christ!!

Vaccine Designed For Girls 11-21 Causes Major Side Effects, Death

Many of these Vaccines are not safe. I urge you all to take some time out and learn all you can about this and other Vaccines, the companies who make them, the profits they make, the real effectiveness of them as well as why more and more they want to make Vaccines 'mandatory'. This particular Vaccine is designed for girls just entering child bearing age.

Know this, the bio-testing of these diseases on Africans is not new. They have been doing this for a long, long time and the Americans are not the only ones. The Russians as well have long used Africans as a testing ground for their experiments during the cold war. And the US has been doing these things for a long, long time.

So be careful  dear readers. Don't be a panic monger, but be careful. These medical companies are about one thing... MONEY. The only other thing that motivates them is the mitigation of legal risk. Once you understand that, you get a feel for why so many people are given these vaccines and why they keep giving them to people even knowing the dangers.

Understand I am not here to blame anyone other than those people responsible. Often these things are done in the Cover world and political leadership is given plausible deniability or often they honestly don't know what is going on until a scandal hits.

Be especially careful if you are black!

Beware Men with needles wearing white sheets smocks!!

Beware of False Prophets

Grace and peace to all men, women and children who serve our Lord Jesus Christ and honor him with humble obedience to his word and the Holy Spirit, whom Christ promised would guide us into all truth (John 16:13).

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

(Mat 24:4-5)

Was Christ claiming that many would come and claim to be Christ, or that many would come and acknowledge him as the Christ. I think the answer is in the passage, they will come in his name. I see this verse as meaning that many will claim that Christ is indeed the Messiah, and they will come in his name, but they are false. They are deceivers and that they will lead many people astray.

Today, I want to do what the Lord asked me to do but not so much what I want to do. But early this AM he made it plain that this is something that must be done.

False prophets are everywhere on the Internet. False workmen, false bloggers, deceivers of every stripe infest the Internet. They are particularly odious when they are there to misdirect the sheep, lie to them, arrange information in such a way that they act based upon false assumptions and generally lie for some purpose that they hide from their hearers.

One of the biggest problems I have had (other than some of the challenges I have already relayed to you) is to keep some of these false workmen out of my site. I have had them here before and they do two things that I really hate. They lie about who they are to get in and then when they get in they steal my work and pass it out to others without asking. Now a person who asks and lets me know how they are going to use it, I say yes, almost always. But there are those who do this and do it consistently without asking, they lie in order to steal.

One of my biggest issues was that when I went private, a lot of people inside the Intelligence community lost something that they liked dis' in public, but they wanted that data and perspective that I had. This I know, some of my analysis got on the Presidents desk and many other places inside the community as well.

So I would get all manner of people writing me and wanting 'in'. The problem is, they often were not who they said they were. They would lie to me about who they were and then steal my work and then pass onwards, often to other deceitful workmen. Now many of you know as I have relayed to you that the US intelligence Community (or members thereof) run a a great many sites. I mean a great many, very well known and popular sites. I mean you would be shocked if you knew. They Government pays these people to run those sites and the reason that the Government does that is to makes sure that US policy is pushed in every avenue of US society. This is why so many 'Christian' blogs did not report what was going on in Ukraine. They could not. They were under orders. There was a lie (narrative) that the Government wanted out there and they did not want the people to know that the US just overthrew a democratically elected Government and installed one that was overtly Nazi and wanted to start a race war to 'get Putin' and significantly weaken Russia. I use this example only to show you how this works. They are commanded to leave out critical data about what we are doing in order to get you to support Nazi-ism in Ukraine and hate Putin and Russia but not tell you all the facts. This is called disinformation. It is called propaganda and it works exceptionally well when people do not realize that such methodologies exist and are regularly used on the people. People like you and me.

Recently, I read some posts by a supposed Christian who for years had many blogs and finally after year and years told people he was a Christian. Now I know that this guy has some intelligence community connections as I know of many, many others that do. They play the intelligence game on people and basically use their privileged place in the community to run interference for the policies of the government. I cannot stress how pervasive these people are on the Internet. They are truly everywhere and keep a long list of links to one another to support 'the narrative' their masters inside the Intelligence Community wish to put forward.

This is important to understand because I think something is getting ready to happen. I have laid it out to my insiders and a couple of others. I am not going to let on what it is here. But I can tell you that there is no way you are going to be able to miss this and that it will not effect you in some very significant ways, and probably to greater and lesser degree's for the rest of our natural lives. I can tell you as I am not connected up with the devil and his army of disinformation. But I have been gently (by our Lord) told NOT to tell everyone.

Besides, I have warned all of you her for many years what was coming. Yes, I have. With clear and concise words. I am not only not under any compunction or obligation to tell you more, I am essentially under orders not to! But my insiders get it. I have made sure they understand what is coming and why and where it will break from. Things so far, are happening just as I said they would. now I do not have all the facts. I don't know exactly how this is going to happen. But I can tell you that they (our government) has been planning for this for a long, time. I think they want to forestall it and probably at this point in time can't.

But while I will not tell you what is coming I can give some of you some warnings. This is mostly meant for poor people, people of color and others who have been disenfranchised by a rapacious system that has enriched the richest at the expense of the most vulnerable.

When the stuff hits the fan, the Intelligence community in conjunction with others in the Military rand other US and international agencies are planning on doing things that are ostensibly designed to help Americans in need. They have been planning this for some time. Many of you have seen the video clips of army vehicles and other government movements over the past several months. Well, something is coming and when it does, they want to be ready for it.It is not so much of question of 'if' but 'when' and how much they can mitigate the pain. 

But I want to caution those of you in poorer communities, particularly Black and Latino Communities. Not all in shining armor are White Knights. While this is not the time for paranoia it is the time for wise caution. What kinds of things am I talking about?

Did you know that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was a US government funded Medical experiment that went 'awry'? I put that word in quotes for a reason, because what they were testing was an Ebola vaccine. But they moved the experiment over to Africa and let it spread intentionally. Why? You are not going to like this. Because they wanted the government contract to cure the hundreds of thousands of people they knew would contract the disease. Now you are going to hear a plethora of disinformation and lies saying that this is not the case, but I am telling you the real deal. The contract for the experiment is still online. I have posted it for insiders. The Ebola outbreak was a classic example of how the government and others with money and power here in the US want to get rid of Black folks in the most profitable way they can. The history of how the US has experimented of Black folks is very long and entire books have been written on the subject that just barely scratch the surface.

MEDICAL APARTHEID The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black American

This history of this is long and these days, pretty well detailed. I don't need to get into the details. Rather I bring this up for a reason. There is a deep dark and very racist streak that still exists in key and the most powerful parts of the American National Security Establishment, and yes, that Ebola vaccine was contracted out of that establishment. Well connected firms with racist pedigree's are very much part of the scene in the key power centers in America. But to really understand where this industry came from and why it is doing what it is doing, you have to know and understand your history.

The most powerful German economic corporate emporium in the first half of this century was the Interessengemeinschaft Farben or IG Farben, for short. Interessengemeinschaft stands for "Association of Common Interests" and was nothing other than a powerful cartel of BASF, Bayer, Hoechst, and other German chemical and pharmaceutical companies. IG Farben was the single largest donor to the election campaign of Adolph Hitler. One year before Hitler seized power, IG Farben donated 400,000 marks to Hitler and his Nazi party. - The History of the "Business With Disease"

This today is one of the most profitable industries there is. Its profits are in the news today.

The top levels of the Defense and her contractors, the CIA and other intel agencies are almost all White with a few tokens who were promoted for their value in attacking their own people and thus deflecting charges of 'racism' when the job pool stays essentially White.. That is their sole utilitarian purpose to those with the power. Yes, some places must hire the Indian, Asian and African, if they need them to do work in those parts of the world. But the Black man? The American Black man? They got a plan for him. Why can't so many Black folks see this? I will tell you. The media has trained them to not see what they are seeing.

I want you all to understand that the Nazi' got away and they did not sit idly by and go fishing in Montana. No, they were very, very busy. They were used as spies and for things that have not yet been revealed. They got jobs in the US intelligence community. There is a long story here that I will not get into but the thrust of what you need to know is this - Nazi-ism, it's spiritual and financial underpinnings left Germany and came to both the US and Brussels.

There is a darkness that has been shadowing the US government since the end of WWII and most of it, tracks back to the secret deal that was made with the Nazi High Command and the US before the end of the war. That cooperation has changed and morphed but it has never changed its basic tone - Profit, centralization of key political and economic power around interconnected corporations (fascism), racism and mass murder. These three things have always gone together and they are the foundation of Nazi-ism.

My point here is to warn you that during times of crisis, false prophets will try and tell you to do this or go there. Poor people, Black folks and others will find that suddenly people who never gave a hoot about them until this major crisis comes will arrive in your neighborhood with the things you need or want... vaccines, food, water, more vaccines, other perishables... What am I saying here?

Be suspicious. I did not say paranoid, but be suspicious and highly cautious. Trust will not be the operative word in the months and years ahead. There is likely to be at least some confusion and a lot of fear and panic. Things may not go smoothly and this is when evil men are able to come in and do their evil and then makes excuses after their work is done and perhaps blame others for the wickedness they do. It is in times of crisis and confusion is when these kinds of dark forces operate best.

Go back and read your history. If you do that you will know that many powerful men in the government do not think Black lives matter, except to find a profitable way to kill us. If you are rich and White and live in the suburbs then you need not worry about this, if you are poor and Black and live in the ghetto, you do. Now I don't know what they plan, but of this I can be sure, some elements will try something. Before they start they will create a cover story and excuses and see if they can get away with it. Why? Mostly just to see if they can. I know this community and the kinds of people in it. They are not good people, though they pat themselves on the back and say that they are... while they erect swastikas in Ukraine hand over arms to Nazi's and tell them to exterminate Russians and secretly arm terrorists. 

This is why I am telling you to be careful. Clearly they are planning new approaches to handling things and little executive orders like this are one of the things that should tip the wiser ones of us off. New policies that you ordinarily would oppose will be marketed to you so that you support it. This is how propaganda works and believe me brothers, it works wonders on those who don't know they are being targeted.

Your Internet prophets and subverted Church leaders will be key in getting Christians to go to where the government wants you to go; take the food, water and vaccines the government wants you to take and go where they want you to go in a crisis. Their handlers in the Intelligence community (if they aren't actually case officers) will direct them as to what to say, how to say it and when to say it so that a perfect narrative can be cross supporting across many 'Christian' and conspiracy sites. This I can tell you. These guys, especially the ones who claim to be Christian will stab you in the back when they get a chance. I know this first hand. So I speak from experience and just barely escaped a dagger in my spine from a CIA case officer who works the religion thing for the agency. So I say this to you all. Don't trust them. You can trust Judas before you can trust these guys. Their first loyalty is to the CIA, the DOD or other intel agencies, not to Christ. They are in short, false prophets and deceitful workmen.

But that is not the only threat we face as Christians. Yes, there is a crisis coming and it is not going to leave American unscarred and unchanged. But there are other false voices out there.

For a long time I have refrained from saying too much about the Catholic Church's new Pope. This has been for many reasons, one is I listened to someone I should not have, but mostly because I have always found it wise to let a leader settle into a new job. Give them a year, let them learn the new Job. This goes for Presidents, Pope's, Governors and others in the top job that run large bureaucracies. Those are not easy jobs and often the things we read about them are so politically charged that separating fact from fiction is not always easy. It takes a year for them to get settled in. I admit and still say that there is a great deal about this new Pope I like. Really like. I like what he did to help clean up the Vatican Bank, dealing more forcefully with child molesters, helping the poor and I mean really helping the poor and unwanted. and forcing the Church Hierarchy to remember that it was the poor the Christ ministered to. No I am loath to criticize someone who has so far done a lot of good on many fronts. 

But this Pope I can say with some time seriously observing him and his associations has a dark side. His history in Argentina troubles me greatly and know that what you are reading about him is not a conspiracy theory. Here is one of my brief entries (with omissions) I posted for Insiders a few days ago for insiders.

The Pope Speaks

This Pope is simply not preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but the gospel of worldly friendly New Age-ism. From all the press releases and things I have read about him, he wants to be loved by the world and has adjusted his message to make friends with the world.
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
(Jam 4:4)

Why does the world love, speak well of and listen to him?
Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you
 for so did their fathers to the
false prophets.
(Luk 6:26)
Brothers, I am not going to bash the Catholic Church. A lot of her Cardinals and others in the hierarchy know what this guy is and they can do nothing. Those who say too much will wind up face down in a drainage canal, or have their Audi burst into flames on their way to this evenings service. The big tip off for me was when he invited the Nazi Leader of Ukraine for a personal visit with the Pope. That is when I knew where this guy's soul was at.

But there is a revolt brewing. Francis, as I have stated before, is almost certainly a 'plant' out of Washington to push Obama's sexual revolution and foreign policy agenda on the Church and use it as a 'moral sounding board' for everything from Global Warming, encouraging mass migration to Europe, fighting ISIS, Support for Ukraine's fascist regime, establishing ties with Cuba and certainly more to come. Since he came to the throne, US and Vatican Policy have been in perfect lockstep. Some of this was probably done in conjunction with Hollywood and some of the satanic forces that operate out of it to neutralize the power of the Church, the primary opposition to many of the sexual trends being pushed by these forces, who funded the President. I am not saying all his is doing is bad. I am saying he isn't following Christ, he's taking orders from Washington.

While I initially spoke well of this Pope and his love for the poor, which I think is genuine, I think it quite possible that he is in reality an apostate. A person who is very close to the Vatican and the people there made a strange comment to me about a year ago and he basically said that a very prominent Christian no longer believed the Gospel because Jesus didn't come back. He did not name the Pope, but I took that clearly to be his meaning.

I think Francis wants to turn the Church into a socialist do gooders club and wants to relax Church teachings on sexuality in order to fill its pews and keep the administrative structures alive for use by the rising beast system. Remember, He calls those who hold to the fundamental teachings of scripture 'mentally ill'. Better phrased if you believe the gospel of the Christ and the the one that the Apostles left for us in their letters and Bible you are crazy. There is an old jest, Is the Pope Catholic? Today, it is not a jest. But it looks like he's got an agenda brothers.

I think we can better understand that this guy is in all probability a wolf in sheep's clothing.

People think I was fooled by him. No. I was not. I am rarely fooled except by those whom I trust and once that trust is fully broken, it can never be restored again. Rather, I wanted to judge his Papacy by his deeds rather than conspiracy theory. I try and do that with all leaders, particularity Presidents. It takes a good year for a person just to get used to the job. There is a steep learning curve for just about anyone who takes those kinds of jobs, with the possible exception of Bush II, who had his dad to mentor him.

So no, I was not fooled. I was suspicious from the beginning as his stage managed 'goodness' looked too much like a PR campaign managed out of Madison Avenue. Get the world rooting for the Pope and then demonize those who hold to the teachings of Christ and the Church. That way the world and its evil leaders can say, if the Pope says its OK, who are you to say different? I think he wants to move the Church to the 'Gay is Ok' school of Christianity; forget the Bible, Jesus was a myth, listen to the guy in the White Robes, he'll tell you what the Bible means.

Having said that does not mean that we should not pray for him or the Church. If he has lost his faith, perhaps someone can show him where he can find it again. If someone has dirt on him people are using it against him, we can pray about that too. So yes, I ask all of you to pray for the Pope so that he leads the Church into the path that God wants to lead the Church, not Obama, Hollywood, the CIA or the devil.

I want to say this as well, the Pope has blasted fundamentalism. To me Fundamentalism is a good word and I am proud to call myself one. I believe in the FUNDAMENTAL truths of the Bible. However, I do not believe that my beliefs should cause me to make any attempt to FORCE them on others. That is not fundamentalism, that is fanaticism and you have just as many religious fanatics as you have fanatics of the Secular Humanistic or the moral relativism kind who can be even more intolerant and crazy than those of the ISIS variety. So if the Pope or anyone calls me a fundamentalist and hates them and me, I know that is a sure fire test of knowing I am on the right path for I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not the Testament of Langley (where the CIA is Headquartered). To say all paths lead to God is to call Christ a liar and this Pope has just done that.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

(Joh 14:6)

When groups, societies and nations depart from fundamentals and the basis of their existence, that is when trouble comes. When the US departed from the fundamentals of the Constitution what did she get? Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and Total Surveillance. When Germany cast out her constitution what did she get? The Gestapo, Hitler and Buchenwald. When the Church departed from it what did she get? The Crusades, The burning of protestants ministers and the Inquisition.

One day, we will probably get a Pope performing  gay marriages from the Papal throne as a new Catholic 'ritual' to show how 'un-fundamentalist' they are and that all roads lead to God.

No, They don't all lead to God. All roads
but one lead to hell and if this Pope believed in Christ Jesus, he would preach that, clearly and unequivocally. From all I have read and heard about him, he doesn't.

On both counts. He's got another gospel he's peddling. (See Galatians 1:8-9)
I believe that all religions do best when everyone can all worship in peace. When there is a minimal interference from the state and when men respect each others right to disagree and get along in the secular world. Respect is the key word. In that respect I am most tolerant. I will do all within reason to get along with anyone. Buddhist, Catholic, Muslim, Old, Young, Gay, Transsexual, Black White, Chinese, Latino....

But when it comes to Church teaching as it effects believers in Christ, I am a FUNDAMENTALIST.

And I am  proud to be one. Brothers and sisters, the more the world makes that a bad word, the more I think we as born again, blood bought believers should embrace it. Not in hatred or social intolerance, but knowing that we are different and will always be so as long as we adhere to the teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the Bible.

I pray that my God may keep me a Biblically based fundamentalist until the day I pass on and that I do not stray onto the road of satanic comprise anywhere along the way.

So today the world loves the Pope. He is coming to DC and the power structure here is rolling out the red carpet. I have heard it from a source in Congress that he is going to have a special 20 minute session with Speaker Boehnner and that he will perform a baptism for a family member.

Have you noticed how the world treats him and how they treated a guy like Jeremiah, Zechariah, Paul and Peter. Why? One group preached the whole counsel of God and the other preached what the world warned to hear. What did Jesus say? Beware of false prophets!

Prophecy Seminars

You know, I have not been to one in a long, long time. I can remember seeing one on the web that was held out west a few years ago. I was reading the advertising and seeing which sites and 'prophets' were pushing it. As I was reading it I clicked a link and it had all of the speakers that were to be present. Their pictures were also present. You know what I saw? Not a single Black face and there were probably 10 speakers advertised. More and more this is the kind of thing I see in Western Christendom. It's a White man's only club. Not only that, but you see that Churches simply are not at all integrated. There are White Churches and Black ones. Yes, there are many that are of mixed races, but I think you see where I am going. Over and over again the Church and these prophets mimic the world.

You know, I have been blogging since February 2000. I have seen how some of these new found 'prophets' get sudden fame and thousands of hits and Internet links from sites that are connected to the US intelligence community. When I try and reach out to them, I get not a cold shoulder but an ICE cold shoulder. I get the message – no Blacks allowed and if you aren't 'connected', we don't want anything to do with you. Like I said, I have been doing this since Bill Clinton was President. I have been blogging about as long as anyone on the internet and I see how this game is played. Do you know whom I find the most receptive to me? Often is activists and liberals who are working on some key issue. Prison reform or Drug law reform, Homelessness or something like that. But other so called internet 'prophets'? They treat me like the two-headed step child. The same way so many cops treat the brothers in our cities.

That is what I got from them. Over and over again. They don't even want to talk to me! Well a host of these workmen are not what they appear to be as they mislead the sheep with the gospel of Langley. Brothers, these are for the most part, the Beast's men. They do not belong to Christ, though more than a few probably honestly think they do, while they utter lies, half truths, misdirect and steal from those whom God has genuinely called.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

(Joh 8:44)

This is why I tell each and everyone of you to be on your guard. As the days get darker and things begin to get somewhat crazy, I exhort you to keep what I say here in mind. When Christ warned us of false prophets in the last days, he was not giving us some theoretical possibility. He was telling us of a major threat to us in these most dangerous times. That these men will be highly skilled in deceit and that they will fool a great many souls.

Brothers, my recent ordeal with the Feds investigating me was kind of a wake up call for me on a number of fronts. First, I learned whom not to trust. Second I have learned to be far more discerning in my associations and to trust no one that does not consistently show the fruits of the spirit in their lives. But more importantly I learned that those who are true workman for God and Christ are going to be hated and attacked, not loved by the beast system. That is why they attacked me and tried to set me up (yes they did) and why these false workmen get government pay and high traffic numbers and the praise of other Christians who do not know the real deal. Those who are true to Christ to the bone are going to be targeted, those who serve the beast will be supported and protected thereby.

I have since removed all of the people from my insiders page who I strongly suspect are part of the Intelligence community. I view them as Judas' in the making not brethren and masterful student's of The Arts Of Betrayal 101. They never come in with their real names, they use false ones. They never answer direct questions, they are always most evasive. Now dear readers, I will make exceptions when I think a soul is in genuine distress. But that is the only exception I will make. I do not trust them. There is a quote that I am pretty sure was made by JFK not long after the Cuban Missie Crisis. I cannot find it, but it basically says that he was tempered by some hard and bitter lessons.

I have too. But they were lessons I think I needed for the next phase of this present evil age. That false brethren abound, but there are many a humble honest Christian out there who walking with Christ and made up their minds that that is what they are going to do no matter what. Stick with them and remove yourself from those with dual loyalties.

That is why I am neither bitter nor angry. I have been tempered, gently rebuked, given more wisdom and learned above all to do what God tells me to do when he tells me to do it. That my job, however small and humble it may seem to others is very important in the eyes of the Lord and that I must take pains to remove evil influences from my life, lest I give satan opportunity to wreck havoc in me and my work.

God be praised, God is good. I have done this for a long time and God has kept me going and that in and of itself brothers is a major miracle in and of itself. I cannot stress that enough.

Finally I know some of you want into the insiders site. That is not possible. There are many reason for that. Those mentioned at the beginning of this piece and the fact that I cannot be sure these Feds are done peeping into my windows (yes they really were) reading my email, scanning my computers etc. I still have lots of trouble with VPN's from time to time. So they are probably still monitoring who I am talking to and the sites I visit. Until I am sure the devil and his henchman are done playing peeping tom and freak of the week, entry into this site for others is going to be a near impossibility. The door was open for a long time. Those that wanted in had every chance so next time there is an open enrollment, ask and follow the rules. This coming crisis must pass or rather, stabilize before I even consider any new members being admitted.

May God grant all of those who love him in spirit and truth wisdom to discern the times and the spiritual acumen to discover false prophets and deceitful workmen on the interest, in Church, on TV and in your daily lives.

Fiorina Let's 'Em Have It On The Abortion Issue

I am glad she said something and that it came from a Woman. This is sick Presidency that can fund itself from those who commit such abominations. This is sick nation that has allowed this to go on for so many years and done so very little.

This is a national test of Character. Weather we love life, or industrial scale murder to feed our gods of economic expediency.

I am not here to be unmerciful or lack compassion for a woman who is as the saying goes, is 'in trouble'. No, I am saying that Abortion is the most evil, most stupid but most profitable method of dealing with that trouble and this President has made it his personal crusade to make sure that this abomination stays part of the American mainstream and that he and his donors profit from it considerably.

There is a person at my gym that has a bumper sticker on their car that says, 'Take my hand, not my life' with a picture of a baby on his belly reaching up. 

That is how we should look at a child. As a life looking for love and guidance, not a repository for tissue samples.

Somali Christians Fleeing Islamic Extremists Lose Family, Fingers

HARGEISA, Somaliland (Morning Star News) – Desperate to avoid arrest in Somaliland for leaving Islam, one Christian fled to Ethiopia, while another in Somalia escaped kidnappers after losing fingers for his faith.

Sharif (full name withheld for security reasons) said he had to leave his wife and four children behind in order to sneak out of Somaliland, an autonomous region of Somalia.

After the 31-year-old Sharif put his faith in Christ in May 2014 in Hargeisa, capital of the self-declared republic of Somaliland, a year later rumors began circulating that he had left Islam, he said.

“My association with a visiting white missionary landed me in trouble,” he told Morning Star News by phone from an undisclosed town in Ethiopia. “I feel sad because I cannot see my family, because if I return back to Somaliland, then the government will arrest me.”

Sharif said he was thankful to God for enabling him to miraculously cross the border.

His children, ages 8, 6, 4 and 1, have relocated to an undisclosed town in Somaliland with their mother.

“I am not sure what will happen to my wife and four children,” he said. “I am praying that God will provide for their basic needs. Pray for me that one day I will see them.”

Non-Somalis may practice any faith in Somaliland, but conversion from Islam is forbidden for natives, said a church leader in Hargeisa. The constitution of Somaliland, which stipulates that all laws must comply with the general principles of sharia (Islamic law), prohibits conversion from Islam, according to the U.S. State Department’s latest International Religious Freedom Report (2013).

Quality Not Quantity

When I hear the word crisis, I often think like many of those have said about the Chinese word for Crisis - It also means opportunity, or so it is said. As the western world more and more turns against the Christian faith and more and more Western Churches are abandoning the fundamentals of the faith, many believers are decrying these things. I do as well, but only up to a point.  "How can you say that brother Mark, watching these Churches lie empty is a horrible thing", some may exclaim. Yes, it is. But it is only the result of centuries of doctrinal errors built one upon the other. For too many centuries, the Church and the state in Europe were too close. As the Church got corrupt, she corrupted the state, and vice-versa. We all know the story of the inquisition. We also know the story of how many men were martyred for the 'crime' of printing and distributing Bibles, by men who claimed to be God's ministers!

Brothers, I am unmoved by much of institutional Christianity, Catholic or Protestant. Yes, there are souls who are born of God in both groups, but the number of truly born again saints in either is far less than the generous numbers we read about. The number of saved is not very large in the west. There are too many snares out there that divert people away from God's service. I know this much; serving God honorably is a blessing, not a burden and any true minister will tell you that, if he really knows his God.

You see, here in the west there are so many things, diversions, entertainments and alternative religions and philosophies, that people usually turn away from God, This is because there is something very different about  Jesus than what you find in the increasingly popular Eastern religions. There is a set, rigid moral code that is not easy to fulfill, especially in our decadent western culture. Almost all of today's cultural cues are diametrically opposed to Christianity. The Hedonism, sexual cues, the nature of our throw away society, and the constant if subtle drone and panorama of negative imagery associated with Christianity makes holding ones faith particularly hard in these times. But did not Christ tell us of this?

For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
(Mat 13:17-23)

Now brothers, only one group became fruitful, and we know what happens to the unfruitful in the kingdom.

He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
(Luk 13:6-9)

So let us dispense with this whole idea of universal salvation for anyone who comes forward during altar call and then goes right back to doing sin. Yes, that doctrine is pretty much being preached here in the US in many Churches, but it is not a doctrine taught by Christ. There are many doctrines that are being taught today that can lead to spiritual disaster. I think one of those is these new attitudes the Pope is trying to 'normalize' on the Catholic Church on the issue of divorce. Christ was crystal clear on the issue, yet the Pope wants to break the rules on this.

And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
(Luk 16:17-18)

I say this not to blast the Pope, but to show you how false doctrines enter in. Then what happens? You wind up with a Church full of unrepentant adulterers in God's eyes because Church leaders essentially called Christ a liar. Protestant Churches are no better, they allow the same things and some even worse.

But here is the problem; that Churches are looking at the quantity of believers rather than the quality. They want full pews but many of those sitting in them are still dead in trespasses and sins. But for many Church leaders, they don't care. But as the years roll by, they wonder why no one in the Church grows spiritually and many fall away.

God has standards and frankly it is the Churches major failings that it has no real Godly standards today, or perhaps more accurately has lowered them considerably. They let anyone in, refuse to kick long time unrepentant sinners out and then wonder why so many true believers refuse to sit in a modern Western Church. I will tell you. They know better. Institutional Christianity has too many false shepherds feeding her parishes and mega-Churches poison sermons, too many Freemasons and secret apostates in positions of power. Yes, Apostates. Men who ceased to believe the Gospel but will never leave the Church because of the money they make and need for retirement, etc. Brothers we have solid scriptural grounds for casting out the wicked from among us.

but as it is, I wrote unto you not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one no, not to eat. For what have I to do with judging them that are without? Do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.
(1Co 5:11-13)

Church leaders more and more are turning the Churches in the west into unrepentant sinners clubs rather than a repentant sinners assembly of God's holy saints.

No Authority

One thing the Catholics have that Protestants don't for the most part is a rigid and clearly laid out path of authority in their administration. Paul laid out the same things, but no one in the west really takes the Scriptures view on this seriously. I can remember reading a Catholic Blog a few weeks ago and it was by a person who called himself a reformed Protestant. He went back to the Catholic Church knowing full well the problems it has. But he was even sicker of the confusion and lack of discipline that was found in modern protestantism. These claims have a lot of validity. But I go one step further, each has significant errors in them and I think the tap root of those errors can, at least partially be found in the Tax exempt status of these Churches, which by virtue of that status, become grafted into the State, rather than into Christ. This is such a subtle thing and one that most pastors don't think about, but the devil always moves subtly, in ways we don't mark. The next thing we know, satanic chaos abounds and we wonder where it came from. Why are the Churches in the West in such disarray? Look to the devil, his wolves in sheep's clothing as ministers and their contract with the devil, also known as the 501(c)3 Incorporation. Simply put, you cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve God and the state, nor can you serve the Holy Spirit and Mammon at the same time.

It simply cannot be done but Churches across America are doing their level best to try it.

But if the prognosis for the Western Church is bad it is much better in places where there is persecution. This piece may help you understand that the death of Christianity is greatly exaggerated. It may be dying in the west, but it is not where there is trouble and persecution, there the gospel message is thriving.

The key to spiritual success is to have a no holds barred approach to your life in Christ, to do what he commands and not be ashamed of the Gospel. I think when trouble comes to America we will be better able to separate the wheat from the chaff. We will know who is saved and who is just warming that church pew. Men will earnestly seek God. Most may not find him, but some will. As I read stories of County Clerks being put in jail for their faith, I say this - the wheat are being separated from the chaff.

Brothers, I just decided that I want to get into the kingdom. I am not too concerned about what folks think about me and I am not going to be ashamed of the gospel or the words of Christ. Let others be ashamed, I will not be.

For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man also shall be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
(Mar 8:38)

If the Church really wants to have victory in the days ahead, it must learn that we must have truly born again folks as parishioners. We have to have those whose lives bear fruit. Those that don't and refuse to repent and bring dishonor and disgrace upon the fellowship by living in a matter inconsistent with the scriptures, need to be cast out. Warn them once, warn them twice in the presence of Church elders and then if they still refuse to change, get them out. Don't delay, don't dilly-dally, just get 'em gone. This is the key Paul was laying out.

A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
(Gal 5:9)

You cannot keep people like that around, they can be like a disease and can infect everyone. But let us be careful about this. Make sure we are dealing in sin, not a disagreement on side issues and minutiae.

Dear readers, God calls us to holiness and peace. We cannot be holy with those who refuse to acknowledge and repent of their sins in our places of worship. Nor can we sit under Church leadership who winks at or approves of those things Christ and the Holy Spirit have spoken expressly against.
But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth.
(1Ti 4:1-3)

In these last days have we not heard Church leaders bring in these doctrines? Have we not heard the lies they speak in the Lord's name placing their personal stamp of approval on the things God has so clearly condemned? Brothers, this is why the Churches in the west have no power and many are now vacant. It is not because these other religions are true, but that men who led the Church led it into error and drained the Church of all of its spiritual power by virtue of sin and demonic doctrines. Often these doctrines are brought in so subtly and are so enticing that they can fool even the most faithful saint.

This is why we as Christians need to be wary of large Churches that preach fluff instead of meat and don't demand holiness among its attendees. In short, better 50 wide awake Christians armed with the word and the spirit, that 500 slumbering apostates who are just taking up space.

Quality is more important than quantity.

Outrage Follows Death of Young Black Man, Jailed for Stealing $5 of Snacks

Heartbreak swelled on Friday afternoon after the news broke that a mentally ill black man from Virginia died in a jail cell on August 19 after spending four months behind bars for allegedly stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers bar, and a Zebra Cake worth a total of $5 from a 7-Eleven.

Response on social media reflected growing public awareness—and outrage—about the overlapping scourges of institutionalized racism, a dysfunctional criminal justice system, and a troubling gap in mental health care for the disadvantaged.

According to news reports, 24-year-old Jamycheal Mitchell was arrested by police on April 22 in Portsmouth, Virginia, the same day that one of the city's officers fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old named William Chapman in a Walmart parking lot.

After spending almost three weeks in a city jail, Mitchell was moved to a regional facility on May 11. Ten days after that, a judge ruled Mitchell was not competent to stand trial and ordered that he be transferred to a state-run mental health facility for treatment. However, according to the Guardian, which on Friday became the first outlet to substantively report on Mitchell's death, the hospital said it had no vacancy. Mitchell was therefore detained in jail without bail until his death. - Common Dreams

Authorization For US Commission On Religious Freedom About Expire

Here are five things you need to know about this commission. Our government often does not do right, but this is one of those things we do and should continue to do, protect religious liberty. On that note, here are some pending bills on religious freedom that perhaps we should all pray about!

Ethiopian Pastors Jailed After Protesting Persecution

(World Watch Monitor) A district court in Ethiopia has charged six members of an Ethiopian Orthodox Church (EOC) with inciting public disturbance, destroying public trust in government officials and spreading hatred after it surfaced in the media that official complaints were made to the government about increasing persecution of Christians in a Muslim-dominated area in the south of the country.

The court found the men guilty on 7 August and sentenced them to between five and almost nine years in prison.

The men were members of St Mary’s Orthodox Church in Kilto, 180km south of the capital Addis Ababa in the Silte zone of SNNP state. Silte is a Muslim-dominated zone that came into existence after the Silte people unanimously chose to form a separate zone in a referendum held in 2001.

A number of Ethiopia’s prominent Muslim politicians come from Silte, including the current Minister of Defence, the Minister of Communications and the current caucus leader for women’s affairs in the federal parliament. 

Since the new zone’s inception over a decade ago, its capital, Worabe, has seen tremendous growth and is now home to at least four prominent mosques. But leaders from the EOC have been complaining about increasing persecution, including attacks on their church and its  members by local Muslims and officials of the local government. These complaints have received considerable attention from local independent media outlets.

Situation likened to ISIS executions in Libya

On 11 March six members of St Mary’s Orthodox Church’s Administrative Committee wrote a letter addressed to national leaders of the EOC and copied to various government institutions, including the office of the Prime Minister in which they listed the persecution they have been facing. According to them this included discrimination in job opportunities, unfair dismissal from jobs, unjustly negative feedback on job performance, burning of EOC church buildings, physical attacks and threats against their lives.

The authors said their situation had become unbearable and they likened it to the circumstances in Libya where, in April, so-called Islamic State (IS) militants filmed the execution of 30 EOC members and circulated the video on the web.

The matter of the IS executions is a highly emotive subject in Ethiopia and has led to protests against the government for perceived poor handling of the situation.

When the administrative committee letter was leaked to the media, local government officials summoned the authors to a meeting and demanded an apology. Citing local sources, local privately owned media reported that the leaders’ explanation did not “win the officials’ understanding”: the latter told the authors that going to the media was a mistake. 

The six leaders wrote a letter of apology. That did not deter the district prosecutor from charging the committee members on 6 July with inciting public disturbance, destroying public trust in government officials and spreading hatred. On 7 August the Eastern Azeret Berbere district court found them guilty of all charges. 

The judge sentenced administrative committee leader, Yemariam Worke Teshager to eight years and eight months in prison and sentenced each of the others to five years and six months in prison. They are Masresha Seife, Nigatua Lema, Mulugeta Aragaw, Habtamu Teka and Maru Lema.

The six men have since been transferred to prison in Worabe, the capital of the Muslim-dominated Silte zone The leader of the regional EOC diocese has indicated that they will appeal the verdict, but also said: “Imprisonment is common in Christianity, and it is good to be persecuted".

For many years, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church has been opposing Christians who left its ranks to join (mostly) non-traditional Protestant churches, or Christians who joined the renewal movements within the EOC. However, along with members of these non-traditional Protestant churches the Church has become increasingly vulnerable to pressure from Muslim extremism in eastern, western and south-central parts of the country where Muslims are in the majority. 

Christian youth jailed for evangelising

Meanwhile in eastern Ethiopia last week a group of 15 Christian youths were physically assaulted, arrested and incarcerated with  restrictive penalties imposed on the local Christian community they were visiting during an evangelistic mission. The young people had travelled 430km from the capital Addis Ababa to visit the eastern Ethiopian town of Karamile in a Muslim dominated area of Oromia state.

Trouble started on the first day of their visit when a group of people from Karamile opposed their evangelism  and physically assaulted two of the female members of the group. Police quickly intervened but instead of taking action against the aggressors, arrested and jailed all 15 visiting youths.

The officials released them later in the day after local church leaders intervened and requested  their release. 
The following day town administrators and security officers summoned all church leaders in Karamile to a meeting and ordered them to stop all evangelistic activities outside of the church premises. They also said that although the Christians had the right to pray privately in their homes with their families, they were not allowed to invite other people to such prayers.
These restrictions are in conflict with the Constitution of Ethiopia, which guarantees freedom of religion and protects freedom of expression without interference. Ethiopia ranks 22 on Christian charity Open Doors’ 2015 World Watch List of the 50 most difficult countries in which to live as a Christian.

Prison Backs Off Placing Manning In Solitary For Toothpaste Infraction

The above story, I know is about a confused young man, who is now considered a woman. I don't agree with what he did with those cables, but I will say this. This is how the US intelligence community works. I may be overstepping a bit here, but you all should know this much. Members of the US intelligence community enticed him to do what he did. He was basically entrapped. They wanted those cables leaked and used him to do it. I am not going to say much more on this, other than to say what I said before on the public site. I want to stress this in t he strongest possible terms. Ministers of any capacity need to be aware of who they are dealing with when one of these intelligence guys shows up at your door.  Manning was enticed, guided and used. I did not say he was not guilty. I am saying that he had a whole lot of help and no one is ever going to go after his helpers.  There is a really big (mind blowing) backstory here that I will not burden you with.

I am glad someone took a look at Mannings situation. But remember, he's got the LBGT lobby now looking out for him. Who is looking out for the brothers?  Or even the poor white man or woman who got railroaded in our corrupt system? You would think America's first Black President would. In fairness, he does appear to be more sensitive to Black issues these days. But I think some Black leaders have let him know that either he starts to pay attention or he is going to get lambasted by them in the media and maybe call a Black march on the White House to start to deal with the President. Perhaps one day calling for the removal of the removal of certain people from White House. But on that note (see link) It is sad to see what they did to Dr. West. He is one of the few really intelligent and historically literate Black voices out there and he was fearless (you don't get a chair at Harvard on Black studies by being a dummy)... But I knew they were going to shut him up. He was told to shut up by some powerful people inside the Intelligence community. They did not like him calling out those who were directing Black America into the hands of its enemies. So he took them to task. Then they shut him up. Cornel West has to be quiet while others are given voice in the media to help put Black America back to sleep. Here is some background but remember that piece was placed in a media organization that is part of Corporate White America who may have been glad to see that negro fall.. The Daily Beast is owned by Newsweek and Newsweek is owned by the Washington Post And the Post is owned by... well I can't be sure but I say...  take a good really good  guess. The real story is even worse than you can find on the internet. But this is how they hide the origin of their prejudicial articles and slant (narrative) from the people and the covert interconnected business interests that make some intel people very, very wealthy as they secretly sling political mud at the Black man, raid his computer and maybe plant stuff on it to silence the smart, talking negro who points out your real enemies to you. Consider, cogitate and correlate this and this. Now just ask yourself... what if...? Yes, a bigger what if than you may imagine as you read the who's who of the money making end of it.

Brothers, someone has to say something. Those that don't know can't say, most of those that know can't say. or are too cowardly. Someone must speak out about what is happening in secret because the effects of it are in our unemployment numbers, prison stats, national debt and national political, economic and spiritual malaise. Spiritual because some of America's pastors do not have the spirit of God, they have the spirit of Langley (where CIA HQ is).

I am giving you a window into a world they don't want you to know about or even believe exists. It is not coincidence that all those big intelligence connected spying companies are run by White men and our prisons are filled with Black ones.  Yet, I do not want to give you the impression that the whole community is completely out of control. Rather that there are hidden connections that will help you better understand why that young Black man is laying dead in the street for having a joint and the rich white kid gets 'treatment' for having three crates of heroin in his BMW.. The oversight system of the intel community is broken. Serious Crimes can be committed with impunity because the folks in charge of looking into serious malfeasance are coked up in their offices with white powder on their mustaches, screwing a blonde, getting insider trading tips from their sources at the major trading houses and Wall Street banks... many of whom are intelligence fronts.

Yes, I think those who once praised our President are not happy, though they have so far kept quiet, hoping he will act responsibly and more importantly effectively against all of this injustice. But to take on this would be to take on Goliath. What happened to Dr. West is a sign of what they can do to you if you don't get on the Black Train to self destruction with a guy in a White Sheet as the engineer.

Yet having said that, I ask that you pray for all of those who are in jail because of this kind of thing. There are more than a couple. I think once they get behind bars they are singled out for 'special treatment' by prison authorities.

This is particularly true of Black folks who are in jail for just about anything. Here is one of a guy who died allegedly at the hands of prison officials. You can read about another investigation of our Prisons here.

Then there is the issue of race and drugs and how the Establishment wants to deal with with these issues. Here is a piece that I think is most telling. It's Called When Heroin Hits the White Suburbs

Are policymakers going easier today on heroin users (white and often affluent) than their elected predecessors did a generation ago when confronted with crack addicts who were largely black, disenfranchised, and economically bereft? Can we explain the disparate response to the “black” heroin epidemic of the 1960s, in which its use and violent crime were commingled in the public consciousness, and the white heroin “epidemic” today, in which its use is considered a disease to be treated or cured, without using race as part of our explanation?

Marc Mauer, the executive director of the Sentencing Project, a group that targets racial disparities in the criminal-justice system, has been following this issue closely for decades. He agrees there is strong historical precedent for comparing the crises through the prism of race: - The Marshall Project

Dear readers, the system is staked up against the poor man, especially the poor Black man.

Dear readers, I do not want to be too hard on our President. I really don't. I know some of you think I am. No one reading this knows how tough that job is unless their last name is Bush, Clinton or Carter. Right now, believe me, the President has his hands more than full. There are some very big things going on that they are not letting us in on, so as hard as I may sound on him, I beg and beseech all true Christians, Black, Latino, Asian or White to pray for the President. He really needs it.

But the only way to get change is to go out and put the Presidents political feet to the fire, not making excuses for him. That takes courage, because every single Uncle Tom Black leader and Black media organization is going to come against you when you try and do it. They have been paid to. Other may seem like they are Black sites giving you the 'real deal', but they aren't.

Black America at this point in time, lacks such courage and does not deserve the Cornel West's of the world. Too many take comfort in the delusional 'Black Think' that is sending us backwards. They would rather listen to the guy who puts them back into fatal slumber than one that springs them into positive action.

But this delusional thinking is something I think God is sending Black America. I just think God is sore displeased with the way we as a people have supported Abortion (literally millions murdered), Homosexuality, War Mongering, and Nazi's just because we have a Black President. All common sense, all rational thought, all morality went out the window for a collective reflex that said, 'protect Obama'.

I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

But for the few who have not forsaken God and would not support wickedness just because it was Black, God has a different word for you.

Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
(Isa 66:4-5)

What is happening in Black America is a microcosm to what is slowly happening to the nation as a whole. Don't laugh and mock at what is happening in Black America.

The very same devils are heading your way, White America.

Zephaniah, Part II: Day Of The Lord

Before we get to chapter two of Zephaniah, I wanted to spend a bit of time on the theme of the 'Day of the Lord' as it is used in the last part of the first chapter of Zephaniah. When the Lord utters his voice about the Day of the Lord we must keep in mind that there have been many Day's of the Lord. The OT prophets spoke of the day of the Lord as it related to the punishment of Israel for her sins and in most instances, it was related to the fall of Israel to the King of Babylon in 586BC. But the deluge can very much be considered a day of the Lord as well, though the prophecies of Noah were not recorded for us is such a way as they made the official cannon of scripture. In short, there is no single 'day of the Lord' as when it comes to Old Testament Prophecy. In brief, the Day of the Lord is a day when God brings in judgement upon those who have rebelled against him, refused to repent and went on doing evil. In essence it is the day of the Lord's wrath and anger. What is the result of the day of the Lord in the Old Testament sense? We can get a sense of it from the book of Lamentations.

How hath the Lord covered the daughter of Zion with a cloud in his anger, and cast down from heaven unto the earth the beauty of Israel, and remembered not his footstool in the day of his anger! The Lord hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied: he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the ground: he hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof. He hath cut off in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he hath drawn back his right hand from before the enemy, and he burned against Jacob like a flaming fire, which devoureth round about. He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire. The Lord was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.
(Lam 2:1-5)

The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the day of thine anger; thou hast killed, and not pitied. Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the LORD'S anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.
(Lam 2:21-22)

But I think we should take a look at the purpose of these 'doom and gloom' prophecies for we Christians who live in the very last days. Yes, they can be gloomy but they are so for a reason. Men have done great evil and God, if he is just, must recompense. But God's righteousness is not man's righteousness. He has a much higher standard that fallen men has. God does not just give justice to the highest bidder or those who can bribe the Judge the most. He does not show favoritism based on race or economic standing. But he does pay particular attention to the poor, the helpless and those who lack the resources to corrupt the justice system and watches most carefully how the rich treat them. His anger is particularly aimed at those who have power and abuse it, especially against the poor and defenseless.

But I think we need to understand the day of the Lord as being a day when a key phase in God's ultimate purpose with mankind is being fulfilled. This is particularly true in the final Day of the Lord when the Messiah returns. You see, we need to understand the whole program God has put in place. I mean the whole plan that God revealed to us for the redemption and damnation of the human race, the creation of which was one of God's deepest regrets (Genesis chapter 6). So when we hear the phrase Day of the Lord we must try and understand it in terms of God's short term and long term purposes. In the days of the old Prophets like Zephaniah, it was to redeem Israel. But Israel had sinned and done very great evil in God's eyes. This God was compelled to judge and recompense Israel for that was the only way she would receive correction. The Prophets message did not work. God had to get 'personal and painful' with the people, and that brothers he did.

I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light. Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day. My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones. He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail. He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old. He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.
(Lam 3:1-8)

Dear readers, with most people, they are hard headed. They don't listen and are not going to listen to God or his workmen. Only the pangs of pain and the screams of suffering will make them reconsider their ways and this is why God had to do what he did back in the days of Jeremiah, and Isaiah. Sin had reached a point where he could no longer wink at or ignore it, he had to judge it.

So what is God's plan? I mean really? Is it to make the world and the people in it better? No, at least not in the way most would understand it. Is it to just let the world lapse into total evil and then destroy it? No. God's plan can be encapsulated like this. God has a plan to let mankind and his character reveal itself to all creation. The results of sin must be seen for what it is. But God put an alternative plan in place to redeem all men who acknowledge and repent of the evil of their doings. We call these people who decide to take the alternative path, the Church or in eschatological words, the Bride of Christ. So when we hear the phrase day of the Lord we must do our best in NT terms to understand just what God's purpose is. It is two fold.

1. It is to judge the world for its sin and evil
2. It is to redeem the Israel of God, the Bride of Christ/Church (called out ones) of the most high.
In many ways we can see the purpose of the Day of the Lord in Christ's words at his first advent, just before the Holy Spirit was poured out on the early Christians. It is the Spirit of God who is to show us of things to come.
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
(Joh 16:8-13)

The idea of the Day of the Lord is not some day of some hate-filled, vengeful God who is just itching to destroy the earth and burn man up. Rather it is the painstaking culmination of millennia of striving with fallen men to get them to be reconciled with their creator and to a much lesser degree with each other; to turn from evil, selfishness, fear and doubt and to love the good, be giving, to have courage and faith.

Why do we have wars? Fear is one big reason. The fear of what others will do to us. In America this fear has taken transformed itself into a national paranoia. Now the nation up-ends whole nations that never attacked us. Why? Fear. Fear and greed.  Irrational fear that says 'Kill them before they even think about killing us'. It has no faith. This kind of fear always eventually leads to some kind of sin. If it is the fear of hunger it leads to theft, it is the fear of attack, it leads to war, if it is the fear of truth it will lead to lies. Fear is often the first step on the road to sin. Faith is the first step on the road back to God.

Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,
shall he find faith on the earth? (Luk 18:8b)

I can remember just as the US did its Ukraine evil, I was talking with a National Security official about the crap they had just started. He talked about the need to 'tie up the Bear' (Russia) and destroy the Post Soviet-collapse Russian state with coups, assassinations, Nazi's and terrorists (he did not say these things specifically but I read between the lines) . I could not believe what I was hearing. But I smelled the fear and heard the hatred in this person's voice. He did not care one whit for God, the needs of others, the fate of millions of Russians. No, he just wanted to feed his fear and hate demons and the only way to do that was with the blood of others.

Gone was rational thought; gone was any thought of cooperation, which had been working quite well with Russia. Gone was any other thought other than expand the US empire onto Russia's borders and even into Russia itself, steal Russia's oil and basically make Russia a huge US gas station whereby America could control Europe's oil markets and (this was part of the plan too) set Russian against Russian in a long running civil war that would destroy and depopulate Russia of the Slavic races. As this person was speaking, I could almost smell the brimstone steaming over the telephone receiver. What did this irrational fear and hate get us? Many dead, Nazi's in power and a policy of utter failure. Russia has its faults, many of them but the glorification of sodomy and national apostasy are not among them, unlike America.

After the Day of the Lord, the empire of fear and violence will be replaced with one of faith and peace. God is going to change the fundamental principles on which the world works when he brings in his kingdom. But in order to do that he must replace and remove those men who refuse to be changed by the Gospel of love. Those who fan the flames of fear and hate will have their fears come to fruition. Those who utter lies will eat the bread of delusions.

I also will choose their delusions,
and will bring their fears upon them;
because when I called, none did answer;
when I spake, they did not hear:
but they did evil before mine eyes,
and chose that in which I delighted not.

(Isa 66:4)

The ultimate Day of the Lord (the return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ) has this two fold purpose then. To redeem the elect as well as remove and judge the unrepentant damned.

But we as Christians must know and understand some things. God has put these prophecies in our Bibles for a reason. God has given us a rough timeline of events to look for before the Day of the Lord. Why did he do that? He did it because the days leading up to Christ's coming would be days of enormous deception. One of the reasons that God gave us these prophecies so that we would not be deceived. The Day of the Lord has to be looked at in light of the entirety of what God's plan for mankind since the beginning. It was and is to restore all things after the fall to God's immutable character - damnation for the evil, salvation for the just. In short, it is to redeem mankind of his sins and remake the world. It is also to totally defeat the works of the devil. The ultimate purpose of the Day of the Lord must be understood before we can really understand why it is such a dark day for the world. I did not say for the saints for they (we) are not of this world and shall not suffer in the punishment thereof. Again Isiah lays this out perfectly in just two versus.

And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
(Isa 13:11-12)

This is one of the key purposes of the Day of the Lord. God is going to get rid of mankind whom he made and now regrets having done so. But God's love for man and his deep sense of justice would not let him just destroy all of us outright. No, he is giving us all a fantastic chance to not only be saved, but to be called a Son of God! This is a very, very high honor and it makes his joint heirs with Christ! So for mankind the choice is not just heaven and hell, but a very high place in God's kingdom or damnation with all the fallen angels who caused all of this trouble and evil to begin with.

So for the Day of the Lord for us Christians is one that we look towards as it is the day of our redemption.

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
(1Th 5:1-6)

Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
(1Co 1:8-9)

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
(2Pe 3:10-13)

Many critics have always said that the early Apostle's were wrong in that they thought that Christ would come in their times. Yes, it is inferred in a couple of places that they seemed to be under the impression that the day of the Lord was at hand. But Paul, despite what others say, never really said that. Here is what he said.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
(2Th 2:1-4)
No. Paul did not see the Day of the Lord coming right away. He made it plain that there were many things that had to happen first. In fact, I will lay this out as well to you. Christ said this about the Day of the Lord that I think is most striking in its direct simplicity that everyone misses.

Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
(Luk 12:40)

When doing any good basic Bible study one must always do ones very best to note:

1. Who is talking
2. Who they are talking to
3. The time and situation around the conversation
Who is talking in this verse? Christ. Who is he talking to? His disciples. When was he talking to them. In the first century AD.

How many do you think believed that Christ would wait two Biblical days to revive Israel to her land (two thousand years - Hosea 6:2 cf. 2Pet 2:8). Or that Christ would not return for two Biblical days. "the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

How did Christ put his return?

When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
(Act 1:6-7)

Again, Peter also makes plain that the day of the Lord may not come as soon as many thought.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
(2Pe 3:8-9)

Peter starting talking not about days, weeks, months, years or even centuries. No, his reference was to MILLENNIA for the coming of Christ. Brothers, Jesus did not know the day of his return and said as much.

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
(Mat 24:36)

In short, the Apostles did not know, Christ did not know because it was not possible for them to know and we were all told as much!

In closing let me say this. I look at the Day of the Lord as kind of a spiritual 'D' day. A day that God has fixed that no man can know. Like D day in WWII, the allies kept the actual day of the invasion secret. The Nazi's did not know the day or the invasion point. They only knew that an invasion was coming.

We as part of the Lord's army know a few details but only a few, like the soldiers of WWII they did not know the day of battle, they only knew that it was coming and that when it came, they would be in the thick of it.

Brothers, the Day of the Lord for us though is a day of great redemption. We (who serve Christ in Spirit and in truth) shall be redeemed and changed in the span of a second or two and given bodies that shall never see death. But the fate of lost man is one that can be described as horror that will go on forever and ever as the Lord makes an eternal example of those who rebel against the most high.

(Note: This is something I put together for insiders a couple of weeks ago on the Nuclear deal. I hope it helps all of you to get a better understanding of the deal, the issues, both publicly debated and those not publicly debated. This deal has the potential to reshape the middle east in ways that few have articulated. I will be taking more about that once (and if) this deal is ratified to insiders. It also has the potential to change the middle east in much less positive ways if it is not ratified as the War Party has tried to do and still wants to do.

Iran, Nukes, Gas And Regional Stability

The deal with Iran has caused the world to be much abuzz with controversy, praise, anger and confusion. This deal has clearly  been painstakingly put together and negotiated by this administration and others with a vested interest in stopping Iran's nuclear program. These talks had been going on secretly for years. I knew about them and also kept my mouth shut. Only as information about them began to leak did  I say anything. I have fully supported this path the President took and for years made such views plain. Even during the Bush years I felt that if you want to deal with Iran the best way to do that is over a negotiating table, not shouting at each other behind barricades and missile batteries. Iran is not the devil. They have a lot of problems internally many of them are indeed most significant, including their Human Rights record. But a hard look at America's leaves much room for improvement as well. But if Iran is what it is today, the west made it so. Decades of misguided US Foreign Policy are key to understanding why Iran is what it is today. Many years ago, I wrote a piece on Iran and the Rise of Neo-Persia.  I will rehash a bit of it here because I think it most pertinent to understand how we got to where we are before we can really decide if this deal will work or not. The intentions of both and the history between Iran and the West will play significantly in future compliance. Trust is not the word to use in this agreement. Mutually Assured Suspicion is a far  better phrase to use. Still, this agreement, in my view is a very important first step to dealing with Iran in a mature and constructive fashion. Here is what I wrote some years ago.

The Persians are very astute people and having been duped, exploited
and repressed by the west once before, such a future will never happen as long as
Iranians can read their history. -

Mossaddeq - Mosaddegh, Mossadegh, or Musaddiq) (19 May 1882 – 5 March 1967) was the Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 to 1953 when he was removed from power by a coup d'état. From an aristocratic background, Mosaddeq was an author, administrator, lawyer, prominent parliamentarian, and politican, famous for his passionate opposition to foreign intervention in Iran. He is most famous as the architect of the nationalization of the Iranian oil industry,[3] which had been under British control through the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC), (later British Petroleum or BP), and which is thought by many to be the reason for his deposition.

Mosaddeq was removed from power in a 19 August 1953 coup supported and funded by the British and U.S. governments and led by General Fazlollah Zahedi. [4] The American operation came to be known as Operation Ajax in America, after its CIA cryptonym, and as the 28 Mordad 1332 coup in Iran, after its date on the Iranian calendar. Mosaddeq was imprisoned for three years and subsequently put under house arrest until his death.

Among many in Iran and abroad, Mosaddeq is viewed as a hero of Third World anti-imperialism, and a victim of imperialist greed for Iran's oil.[7] However anumber of scholars and historians believe that besides the direct involvement of the UK and US, a major factor in Mossadeq's overthrow was the reactionary clerical dissatisfaction with a secular government, fomented with CIA propaganda. - Wikipedia

Eisenhower and Churchill worked in unison to remove him as he was viewed as hurting
the oil conglomerates inside Iran. But US meddling did not end there. Our support for
the truly repressive and reprobate policies of the Shah of Iran, who succeeded Mossadeq
kindled a fire of discontent in Iran that eventually led to the Clerical regime we see in
Iran today. Iran and its citizens unlike most Americans, are fully aware of their history.
They will not let it repeat again, as some in America's establishment are attempting to do
today. They want to do a 'Iranian Revolution in reverse' and that is simply not going to happen.  - The Rise Of Neo-Persia

History is key and until those in the west understand this history, For many decades, the CIA's direct role in the coup that removed Mossadeq was often lambasted as a crazy 'conspiracy theory'. Well, Clearly one of the negotiating points the Iranian's wanted before they hashed out any deal was that the CIA come forward and admit publicly their role in destroying a country's democratic foundations. Exactly like we are doing now in so many parts of the world. The secret is out and you can read the actual declassified documents over at the National Security Archive. Yes, the CIA overthrew the  government in Iran in order to make more money off of Iranian Energy. The documents are revealing.

I want to give this historical backdrop before we get into the actual deal, the political motivations and diplomatic stances. No American is going to understand how this deal will play in Iran until they get a decent feel for the history and why Iran is the pariah state it is today. Much of the blame is not Iran's.

Second. We need to keep this most salient and important fact in mind. What politicians say in public to assuage their constituencies is often not what they say behind closed doors. Those who say they support it probably don't and those that don't may do so, secretly. That is why public statements about this deal need to be taken with a grain of salt.

Third, while it is true that there was a brief period that Iran was seeking to build such weapons, that program was abandoned years ago as being politically too risky for the Islamic Republic. For years I have had the CIA document up on my site that many in the Bush administration did all they could to hide from the American people, including placing a CIA officer in prison. Now a NIE is the ultimate intel report - an all source determination of the Intelligence community on a particular issue. So this is not just one analyst's or agency's view. The conclusion of that NIE was that Iran was not building a nuke. Her is what was said in that NIE.

We judge with high confidence that in the fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program we also assess with moderate-to-high confidence that Tehran at a minimum is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons. We judge with high confidence that the halt, and Tehran’s announcement of its decision to suspend its declared uranium enrichment program and sign an Additional Protocol to its Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Safeguards Agreement, was directed primarily in response to increasing international scrutiny and pressure resulting from exposure of Iran’s previously undeclared nuclear work. - CIA/NIC

Will  This Deal Prevent Iranian Development Of Nuclear Weapons?

I think the answer to that one is yes, it will provided Iran keeps it's end of of the bargain and the verification appears to be such that once they do break their side of it, it will be known long, long before they could develop one. The key issues are in the view of many experts, clearly verifiable. This deal cuts Iran's capacity to build a nuclear weapon by going after enriched Uranium, plutonium, centrifuges as well as compelling Iran to convert its underground facility to a medical facility. What this deal does is keep Iran from enriching Uranium above the normal Nuclear reactor grade purity. This alone eliminates about 97% of Iran's stockpile. It cuts Iran's enrichment  capacity by cutting for 10 years the number of installed centrifuges from 20,000 to 6100 as well as severely limiting R&D on new ones and puts into place monitoring at sites that produce centrifuges.

This agreement also puts into place 'intrusive monitoring' that allows international inspectors to go in and see personally (on site) to determine compliance with the agreement. At some sites continuous monitoring will go on for a quarter of a century. What is rather striking about this deal is that inspectors will have access to any site, anywhere if they feel there is evidence of suspicious nuclear activity at a facility. This had to be a difficult, but was certainly a key concession for any deal to have verifiable efficacy.

This deal also puts various incentives in place as well. This too is key as those incentives provide political leadership at home the impetus to keep the deal in place. New leadership may arise in Iran that may not be as amenable to the deal. Putting these kinds of incentives in place makes breaking the deal that much harder. It is one thing for Iran take the 'stick' (dismantling things) it is quite another to do it without getting the carrot (relaxation of sanctions). Once Iran breaks the agreement, Sanctions go right back into place and other measures will  be considered by the US and the international community. More can be found in this assessment.

You can read more about his deal and Iran's program here as well.

I am not a nuclear expert, but those that are are indeed praising this deal. Any deal needs vigorous verification. This deal appears to provide it. They key here is will Iran keep this deal and will the political class in power today who support it be able to keep the deal in place?

The Politics: Around the World.

Iran. Inside Iran the key group that must be appeased is the Revolutionary Guard. They are one of the, if not the most important political faction within the state. Their influence cannot be understated. Indeed, many see the IRGC as a kind of extralegal body that is able to engage in various activities, both economic and political without any regard to Iranian law. The Guard's activities in the Iranian Economy is vast. Most notably and relevantly here is their involvement in the Iranian Oil and Gas sector as well as petochemicals. They are into infrastructure, engineering and other key industries. They are Iran's money and security power. In short, they may not run things, but they the one's that those who do run things go to when they want to get things done. The Guard are the 'Guardians of the Revolution'. They protect the State. Now I am going to digress here for a moment because for those Iran haters out there I can only say this. Their system is far more like the US system than anyone will say. Our own intelligence agencies own oil companies, major Wall Street banks, key technology companies, major media organizations; They own defense contractors and many of America's key and biggest corporations. But all of this is done covertly. The only real difference is that in Iran, the people know it and in America, the people don't. The job in each is to ensure two things. That their nations are secure from foreign intrusion and to get very rich doing it. Both do a perform a key function in maintaining the state's existential stability; well, at least theoretically. Yet each are notoriously corrupt. In Iran however power is fundamentally different in this respect - Iran's power structure devolves from two basic sources. The Revolutionary Guard and the Clerics. There is no separation of 'Church' and state in Iran. The two are very comfortable side by side. 

Source: Wikipedia

This dynamic is of extreme importance. Why? Because in order for the Guard to buy into this deal, there had to be a carrot for them. This is the classic 'what's in it for me' question that goes with any business deal or international agreement.  The relaxation of sanctions was hardly a carrot that was going to get the Guard to budge. They were making too much money in smuggling for that to be a consideration. No something else had to whet their appetite. Iran's Energy Minister has signaled a major shift. They are going to open up 50 energy projects to foreign bidding. Iran believes these deals could total over 180 Billion dollars. This new Iranian oil minister is Hossein Zamaninia and he was also instrumental as an adviser to the Nuke deal negotiating team. So clearly the move has been on for some time to open up the oil industry to foreign investment and this was one of the key negotiating points. Again, the Guard had to have a good reason for allowing this deal to go through and the increased production of energy and the profits that go with it along with other economic incentives, kickbacks and bribes are potent inducements.

Other things will probably come out as well in the near  term as the secret protocols are enacted. I think stories like this may be a key to the kinds of things we will see. Iran may tone down its support for international terrorism as a result of secret sections and 'confidence building' parts of the agreement. Reasons given to the public for such moves will be concocted in order to placate domestic audiences.

Israel: Israel has not endorsed this deal. It stands officially opposed to it. While the Israeli's have made much noise about wanting to stop Iran from building Nuclear Weapons, now that a verifiable path for doing so has been achieved they nevertheless stand opposed to it.  So what are Israel's concerns?

1. They don't trust Western Intelligence Services/Verification to detect another covert program. Indeed, clearly they do not trust their own to  do so.

2. In 10 years, part of this agreement will lapse and Israel feels that when that happens Iran can go back to building a bomb (which they stopped doing years ago, without a deal).

3. The deal does not stop Iran's official policy of hostility towards the West in General and the US and Israel in particular. I note that the GOP attempted to attach some kind of amendment to a transportation bill during the debate about this deal that would compel Iran to recognize Israel's right to exist. The Senate Leadership killed it. But it would probably have killed the deal as well.

4. The primary concern for Israel is that before long, because of the brevity of parts of the deal, Iran will build a bomb. Such a development will end Israel's place as unrivaled military power in the region and she will no longer be sole owner of the nuclear card in the Middle East. A nuclear armed Iran could severely limit Israel's ability to strike unilaterally against regional interests that she feels threaten her as she has done so many times in the past. 

I cannot totally dismiss Israel's claims. Iran has always shown a deep and pathological animosity towards the Jewish State. The nations entire existence seems predicated on the twin pillars of Islam and anti-Semitism. The Jewish state has a right to be most suspicious of Iran and a deal negotiated by a President whom those in Israel believe (with good reason) is anti-Semitic. Much of their suspicion is totally justified, but much of it is not.

This deal has international ramifications. There were many negotiators at the table.

The P5+1 is a group of six world powers[1] which, in 2006, joined together in diplomatic efforts with Iran with regard to its nuclear program.[2] The term refers to the UN Security Council's five permanent members (the P5); namely China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; plus Germany. - Wikipedia

So there were more people at the table that merely the US State Department. Verification as well is almost certainly going to be done by an international body, not just the US. The world has a vested interest in keeping the bomb out of Iran's hands, not just Israel.

Additionally while Iran's obsession with Israel is irrational, Israel's obsession with Iran can also verge into the Paranoic. One of the best ways to avoid this kind of paranoia is getting to the facts. Fact one is that Iran does not have a bomb nor is she by any reliable estimates, working on one.  She has not built one and even if she did, there is a 90-95% probability the program would be detected long before it produced a weapon under this agreement. Fact two is that even if they made such a weapon, any attempt to attach it to a missile is another major technological feat that Iran must overcome. Again, such efforts would be far easier to detect than a covert program to build one. Third, and I think most pertinent is the fact that Israel has the bomb and probably has a several dozen if not hundreds of warheads and the means to deliver them. So even if Iran did build a bomb and delivery system, she would only be at parity with Israel today. But given the framework of this deal, I think that is highly unlikely verging on the impossible.

Given this backdrop one has to wonder if the reasons given by Israel are in fact,  the real ones. Frankly I am not so sure they are. I think there are a range of other issues that concern Israel about this deal, which if successful will make Israel more, not less secure from a potential Iranian Bomb.

I suspect one of the key reasons is that an Iran that is no longer under those sanctions will rise up to be a major economic powerhouse in the region in 10-20 years and that in the near to medium term, Iranian Natural Gas availability to world markets without the 'sanction tax' is likely to depress Natural gas prices significantly in the years ahead. That is good news for nation's like China, who consume  a great deal of it, it is not so good for nations like Israel who are developing their own gas industry based on a major find in the Mediterranean, the Leviathan Oil field. You can get a good look at the finds on a map on this link. According to the CRS, here are the potential resources.

Source: CRS

Do click on that CRS link, it is quite informative. These finds would clearly make Israel an exporter of gas on day. The last thing Israel would want is to have a market that is glutted with Iranian Gas. Keep in mind that Iran has the world's largest reserves of natural gas. Also, keep in mind that Europe could break the stranglehold of Russian exports by striking a deal with Iran, something also Israel would not like. Israel may not like the Russians much, but they like Iran even less and making Europe dependent on Iran is something that Israeli policy makers probably fear more than a Bomb Iran is probably never going to make anyway. Now keep in mind that we are talking about 10 years  down the road. Right now Iran has very significant domestic demand so development of this resources will cost money and take considerable time but the potential in 5-10 years to seriously effect the Global gas markets does exist.

Israel's reaction to this deal is on the surface understandable, but when one looks at the arguments, it is somewhat puzzling.

One thing this deal has done is do something almost nothing else can in Israel, unite the liberals and hawks.

Today, Clearly the President is trying to get Israel and the Israel Lobby to lay off Congress who must approve this deal. They have thrown Israel the bone of Pollard as well as offered new arms deals. Israel has been unmoved. But it is also possible that Israel may not be as disapproving of this deal as they sound. I note stories like this one when the negotiations were hot and heavy and wonder what the backstory is.

Ultimately, this analyst thinks that like the Iranians, some in Israel actually seek the total destruction of Iran and nothing but a massive military campaign to reduce the nation to rubble will satisfy them. I could be wrong, but one has to ask the question, what within reason will ultimately satisfy Israel on the Iran question?

I know these views may not sit will with many who live in Israel or who listen to the Israel-Christian lobby here in America. But I am a realist. Israel can be wrong and often are. They are wrong on the Messiah and they can be wrong on this. Yes, I am very concerned about an Iranian Bomb. I am very concerned about anti-Semitic statements being made out of Tehran. Yes, I am even more concerned about their support for terrorism. But any journey begins with a single step and I think the journey to some kind of at least a relaxation of tensions, if not peace can be found in this deal. If seeking peace makes me a bad person, then I guess I will have to remain so in their eyes. In God's eyes, I will be viewed differently

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.

(Mat 5:9)

In closing this section on Israel let me say this as well. We as Christians need to worry more about doing right and less about trying to force and force fit Bible prophecy. God's has his hands on things, he does not need our help in fulfilling that which has already been ordained.

Finally, I know this is not the narrative you are going to find on a hundreds of Christian sites here in the US. Many of those sites are tied in one way or another with Israeli intelligence, who need the domestic support of Christians as it is a critical part of the Israel Lobby here in the US. I am here to give analysis not propaganda; analysis based on facts and God's word, not bribery and fear. So if I sound very different than many others, keep in mind that I am not moved by propaganda, not American, Israeli, Iranian or Saudi. I look at the facts all the facts I can get my hands on, not just the ones that fit long held prejudices. Too many are looking for an excuse for war. I am looking for a reason and path to peace. A nuclear deal with rigorous on site verification that prevents Iran building a Bomb is hardly an evil thing. But there are many out there who will try and make it into just that. To hear other people describe this deal, you would think America was sending Iran a nuclear arsenal, rather than stopping Iran from building one.

Saudi Arabia: The Saudi's have cautiously but publicly endorsed the deal, probably realizing that such an endorsement, however hollow could mean new US arms shipments to the kingdom (which did happen after this was posted in the insiders page). The Saudi's are probably less hostile to the deal  than the Israeli's but still have some deep reservations about a deal that ends sanctions. This has the very real potential of creating a second economic powerhouse in the region, to seriously challenge Saudi Arabia. Second, Iran has  been a supporter of Assad, a regime that the Saudi's have wanted removed for a long time. Legitimizing Iran as this deal would eventually do, could make Saudi Arabia's plans for the region considerably more complicated. The Saudi's have strengthened regional alliances and reached out to Russia in response to the deal. They even rolled out some antiquated Chinese missiles in a military parade. The Saudis do not appear to be concerned about a nuclear attack from Iran. They know that Iran would be swiftly attacked from others should that happen and it won't. So the Saudi's are looking to shore up support in the region, learning to not depend on the Americans so much whom this new Saudi king, I think distrusts. I also think that the Saudi's will quietly begin to seek out their own nuclear program and go exactly as far as the Iranians go. Who will help them? There are a number of candidates. But my guess may seem a bit off but I think the Israeli's will one day if they have not already been approached by the Saudi's to do just that. The two nations are much closer these days and I am fairly certain that secret agreements between the two do include some kind of military cooperation. Keep in mind that Israel and the Saudi''s now fight side by side in Yemen. No, there are almost no Western News reports about it, but yes, both are in bed together. Secretly, the Saudi's handed over $8 Billion to Israel not long ago. What they got in return is not known to this author but my guess is that more not less military cooperation is at hand.

Europe: They want gas. Pure and simple and they would rather not be totally dependent on Russia. But breaking that dependency is going to take many years, Iranian compliance with the deal and significant investment in the Iranian Gas sector. Not only that but they will have to wait in line, just behind the Chinese, who have helped Iran out when few others would. The Germans would probably be wiling to turn a blind eye to some violations if it meant getting access to a steady supply of natural gas. But Russia and Iran's close ties would probably make this scenario less helpful to the Europeans.

China: They want energy. This deal could help them get much more of it as well as major deals in building Iranian energy infrastructure.

Russia: While Iran could easily be a major energy competitor, Russia always moves in quickly to make friends with the people America shows disdain for. Russia knows this lesson well:  It is better to make friends than to create enemies. So Putin likes to do send his emissaries in to make a deal, build alliances and spread goodwill. Russia has invested quite a bit in Iran over the years. Russia did not abandon Iran when she was a pariah state. It was Russia who built and operated many of Iran's civilian Nuclear facilities via Rosatom, the state non-profit corporation.

Russia also hopes to enlist the help of Iran to fight ISIS, something that Russia (nor I) believe America is really much interested in doing with any real seriousness. America and ISIS goals line up too perfectly for them to have any faith in America's intentions. In order to root our ISIS you have to have those who are determined to do so and Iran may be the ones.

In closing, it took incredible courage for the President to get this deal this done. As you know, I have not been a fan of this President's policies. But when someone really takes the tough steps and fights the battles one has to fight in DC and elsewhere to get a deal like this done, I can only admire the vision and courage it took to get this done. Why? Because the alternative to his kind of peaceful deal is war. There are many unstable minds here in America and throughout the world who thrive on war and take a kind of perverse pleasure in the destruction and sorrow it brings. I am not one of them.

I don't think the President is one either.

Obama 's Surveillance State Targets Black Americans.

Yes, they really do have a 'ni&-er list'. Again, I use that offensive word because what this administration is doing is just that offensive to me as a Black American and Veteran. That America's first African American President could let himself be used against his own people like this is beyond reprehensible.

Now keep in mind that for them to monitor social networking sites, they have to know who is part of these peaceful protests. How do they know? They've got to have a list with all Black names. This is a fact that the linked article dances around most delicately.

I know many of you thought I was off my nut when I told you this kind of thing was going on since Ferguson.

Cops gun down unarmed black kids in cold blood, even in the back and if Black folks protest it, the anti-terrorism mechanisms don't go after the cops, but the Black protestors!

These are the exact same methodologies they used on Black folks back in the 60's. Scroll down the page, you'll see some of the crap they did back then and some links to more.

This President can do a lot when he wants to. He did a lot or the Gays, and the illegal immigrants. But when it comes to Black folks, his solution for us is that we get DHS surveillance...

But this is where the President's head is at.

This guy makes some fine speech's deceiving Black folks with echos of King in his fine words.

But his actions resemble  J. Edgar Hoover more than Dr. King. This President is good at talking. He's one of the best we have ever had at the verbalization of the desires of the people. He is also one of the best at the execution of the demands of the elite establishment.

I think this revelation is just the tip of an iceberg of anti-Black activities our Federal authorities have been up to, have allowed, secretly encouraged and otherwise nurtured in America. They can get away with it because they have a Black President who can deflect criticisms of racism, while the Black man get's his back filled with bullet holes.

Don't try and tell Black America about it. Most have made up their minds to never see these things. A people like that are in a hopeless state. Nothing can be done for them.

Better a comfortable delusion that hard facts and harsh realities. If Black folks keep going backwards it is because in the political car they are driving, they refuse to note the fact that the stick shift they think is in fifth gear is really in reverse.

But don't try and tell them. They just don't want to hear it. Not as long as the driver is a Black man named Obama whom they have put blind faith in as he kicks the drivers side door open ready to bail just before the car takes Black folks over the cliff.

And the passengers in the back seat realize that the doors on the back seat won't open and they can't get out.

Then there are the things that show the deep troubles in America that effect Black Americans the worst.

Like this story

Child Poverty Worsened Under Obama's Watch
USAT has the statistics based on race and naturally Black kids fare the worst. But others are not far behind. You can read the report here.

This will get no play in the people it effects the most, African Americans because the President whose polices are largely responsible is Black. If he were White, it would get some serious attention in Black Media. In my view, the time for excuses and Black rationalizations is past, six and half years and he has to take his fair share of the blame; no, not all of it, but his fair share.

Many will take exception with that analysis. I can only say this I have seen how Black folks act and see the non-thinking rationalizations that keep sending our people backwards year end and year out while they listen to these sorry Black leaders take us down the toilet. Some of these leaders get their marching order from White men in sheets or in Masonic Halls that are racially segregated.

We keep going backwards because too many Black folks are too cowardly to step out of the typical 'Black think' and see the problems as they really are and then come up with rational, workable solutions that have a real chance at success. Instead we reinforce that same tired, old self-destructive 'Black think' that keeps Black America heading backwards in every measurable economic statistic of importance. Will Black America figure it out? Yes, in a work camp with shackles on their feet. Then and only then will most (not all)  finally figure it out. When such knowledge won't do them a darn bit of good.
I am not trying to be too hard on the President. That is indeed one very tough job. I get that. I also understand that he knew that when he decided to run... both times.

If Barak Obama has not done much for Black America it is more of a failing of Black Americans, than of Barak Obama. He can't do is job until we do ours. The time to stop fawning over him as after his first year in office. If Black America had  been more critical, more discerning, more reticent to give support to him, he would have done so much more for us.

We did not do our jobs, so when it came to Black Americans, he did not do his. He didn't need to. He knew you were going to vote for him no matter how bad he treated you.

In short, he was exactly the kind of President Black American deserved.

Shoes And A Knapsack

Note: This is a summary of a couple of posts I did last April.

For we genuine born again believers, we are not really promised much in this life. I think of how Christ sent his apostles out.

And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
(Mar 6:7-11)

They did not have much with them during their ministry. What did Paul tell us?

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
(1Ti 6:7-12)

We are not promised anything in this world but food and shelter sufficient for the day. God be praised when he gives us considerably more, and he almost always does. We should give thanks along the lines of this rather than along the lines of murmuring to God about not having this or not having a bigger this or a better that. God knows what we need and more often than not, is ready to give it to us. But remember this, God does not want us to get too comfortable down here. He does not want us to be the lounge lizards of Gomorrah, or the party animals of Sodom or the Barbeque and Beer Kings of Babylon. The comforts of wealth are some very powerful and effective snares the devil uses to neutralize us and our effectiveness in the kingdom. Too many have been made inert (spiritually speaking) because they have too much.

How does a sojourner and traveler go? He travels light, he knows the streets (wise as serpents), and if he knows God, goes where Christ and the Holy Spirit guide him.

But we true travelers, true men and women of God are going to find that we are also going to be spiritually estranged from the most corporate Churches. Today, most of these Churches are not preaching sound doctrine. I got an email this weekend from a reader. Here is part of what this guy (who is a street Evangelist and senior citizen) said.

I never heard one, not one sermon in more than forty five years of wasting my time in various born again, spirit filled, godly so called churches about true separation from government and the world and it's demonic system or love to your enemies, which means that at a minimum you don't started or engage in any war activity unless you are under direct attack and even then the response who not exceed the attack. But nobody has ever attacked the US. Even Pearl Harbor was border line false flag. Why not just sink a few of their ships and even the score and Stay Home? What, and miss out on a golden opportunity to make billions for the war profiteers? And get to carve up Europe or whatever country or region Satan and his minions in government desire to sift for strategic location and rape the country of it's resources and may all of those innocents, the so called "collateral" damage, just be damned as they matter not to our vile, viperous captains of industry, loathsome bankers and the filth and ilk that passes for congress and the White House.

Nope my brother, nary a single word about the things that are commanded by Jesus for you to do to enter His kingdom which is a kingdom of selfless love and righteousness.  (Name withheld)

I could not agree more. Too many Churches are on board the SS Abomination as she stinks up the seven seas with her violence as well as her moral and spiritual garbage. The Church who should be a witness against the evils of our nation but far too often is an integral part of the problem in America; spiritual and otherwise. Sound doctrine is not taught. More and more I find there is a growing number of Christians who have just stopped going to Church because they know that there is no salvation in them.

The Churches more and more are nothing more than an arm of the State and not part of the Kingdom of God. They often part of a great deception. Many of these denominations are full of Freemasons who sit in positions of leadership. Today, the Mason's are far more secretive of their membership and create two lists. One open and another secret. When they want to groom a person for an important office in politics, finance, law enforcement or religion, they keep his membership as a Mason secret. Why? Lists like this make people ask questions.

Why are your Churches dying in the west? It's leaders are not anointed by God, but appointed by godless men or as one recent key Christian leader, get into office by powers blackmailing those who chose him. The Churches may have excellent administrative abilities, great looking buildings and have men who are honored in society, but the simple fact is, they have no spiritual life. They are in fact as dead as Julius Caesar.

We sadly are often even estranged from fellow nominal Christians. Why? Because we do the commandments of God rather than rationalize them away.

Brothers, I see my journey to the Kingdom of heaven like I do a long trip. One where I see the city in the distance, but also see many valleys, mountains, dangers and enemies I have to fight to get there. Look at how the Ancient Israelites had to get to their promised land in the days of Joshua. They did not step into it in a Golden Chariot with a slave running along side of it handing them goblets of wine and handfuls of grapes. No, they had to overcome tremendous obstacles to get there. But they got there.

Dear readers, as long as we have the sojourners mentality, the mindset that we are just passing through, we can have the right mindset for Kingdom living. A person who is on a long journey does not have a lot of baggage. He also chooses his traveling companions most carefully. A bad relationship can be like a ball and chain when it comes to climbing up those hills, or slave chains, when one has to swim across a stream or a being forced to wear a heavy coat when one is crossing a desert.

That is why I say, to all of you. Don't feel bad if you don't fit in. Sure at times it may hurt a little, but get over it. Chances are you don't belong there anyway. People don't accept you as you are? Should that really bother you? One of my firm rules is this – never go where you are not fully and completely welcome and don't let someone else's anti Christian bigotry become your problem; let it be their problem, not yours. You just brush the dust off of your feet and as my mother used to say “keep gettin' up”. Push on; don't let 'em get you down. Frankly, the opinions of lost souls should not matter to us much anyway, as long as we give a good witness with our lives. Some folks won't be happy with you unless they can watch you engage in gay sex, agree with doctrines the 'yin and yang' or get high with them. Should you be concerned about their opinion of you?

I think not!

So I say, don't worry about what others think about you. It does not matter one whit what a world on its way to hell things about you. In fact, if they like you too much you had better make sure you are really saved!!

What matters is what Christ thinks about you, and that you do all he commands you to do. Do this brothers and the God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead, will redeem your soul, make you his brother, grant you a high place in a wondrous kingdom where love, peace, joy and worship of the living God are as abundant as the sands of the shores.

We have a wonderful heritage in Christ, but first we must make the journey and that journey is not an easy one to make. The good news is that God is with us on it and we can make it if we steel our souls towards arriving in the kingdom and make sure nothing gets in our way in the process.

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
 - (Mat 6:31-34)

God loves to bless us with good things. He is not a miser! But we must know what is first in our lives, make it sure, make it paramount and be prepared to do whatever God requires of us to get into the Kingdom of God.

Do that and you will be a successful sojourner, traveler and 'vagabond' in our age, for you will arrive at your divinely appointed destination. What will it be like when we first get there. Here is what I think it may be like.

An Angel at the hour of your death announcing your arrival: Here comes (your name), bring in his nearest relative to greet him.

One of your family members who preceeded you: You made it! Halllelujah and Praise the Lord. I am so glad to see you once again! We were watching you from up here and knew that you were one of the ones who were going to get in! So many have gone aside and as you can see, many of those you thought you would see, aren't here, but Glory to God you made it. Come let me present you to the Lord, Jesus Christ!

You: I made it? You mean I really made it?!! HALLELUJAH!!!! I MADE IT!!

That is what I think happens as soon as a saint dies and goes to be with Christ.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
(1Co 2:9)

I know there are times when many of you get tired of all the bad news out there. I know I do. But when I see how badly mankind has messed up our world and the evils he is involved in I am reminded by this passage from the book of Corinthians. We as true Christians have a wonderful and marvelous future ahead for is as joint heirs with Christ and the true seed of Israel. We are going to be numbered among the redeemed of the earth, not the damned  God has called us to peace and joy. But know this, the devil and his ministers are working overtime to steal that joy and they often come in the form of false brethren. God is making a place for us where such creatures are not to be found. A place where we live with men and women who can be trusted implicitly, who do not betray, do not lie, steal, kill or hate their brother smile up in your face and then stab you in the back. We won't find false brothers who find some man-made ideology so enticing that they take a weapon and kill those who don't share it. Brothers, that is the kind of kingdom that God is making for us. A place where there are no worries, no want, no hate; just peace, love and joy in the Holy Spirit.

I often wonder what God has prepared for us.

It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
(2Co 12:1-4)

Paul (that is who expositors are pretty sure was the man) was caught up into paradise. He saw things that no man can utter. I know a little of this because once many, many years ago, I was also caught up in a similar fashion. I will never forget it. The thing I remember most about it was the utter peace and tranquility. I simply cannot describe it other than to say for those of us who love our God and are now filled with worries and all manner of day to day troubles, believe me brother, they are all going to fade away. You will find that living down here on 'sin planet' and the 'ball of evil' is like dragging two ten ton bricks around with you day in and day out... uphill... in the winter time... in a blizzard... barefoot! You just don't know how much this world is a burden to you until you, as Shakespeare put it, 'shuffle off this mortal coil'.

God has a wonderful plan for each of us dear readers and let us all remember this. He has set us each on different paths in different jobs and different portions in this life for a reason. He has a purpose that will not be made fully manifest until the day we are redeemed. I am often reminded of the passage when the seven thunders utters its voice.

And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
(Rev 10:3-6)

Note that what the seven thunders said was hidden. We are not to know, though John knew but was forbidden to write it down. We cannot see or know all things. We see through a glass darkly (1Cor 13:12) and God has only revealed a very small part of his magnificent plan to us. That is why we all need to keep our eyes on our God given tasks, obey our God's commandments, and when we are unsure of something - to get into our prayer closets and ask him. God knows all and earnestly desires that we come to him in prayer. He is training us up to be sons and heirs of a marvelous kingdom. One where sin and evil do not dwell but rather one where all things revolves around the wisdom and righteousness of glory of God. Do you want to live forever in a place like that? I know I do.

I will tell you something else, i just don't think Heaven is going to be boring at all. I think there will be more activity and excitement in one day there that we can pack into a whole lifetime here. There will be good and exciting challenges, praise, gifts, joys beyond description. We may be challenged one day to build a large city with tools and materials that no one here has ever seen or heard of  before. We may get a charge to design, it and build it using methods that are unknown to mankind under laws of physics that are unknown to us with men and creatures (living intelligent beings) who are eager to assist us.

Brothers, I ask that all of you ask God about your gifts. Seek him out about what your particular gift is, if you don't know. I know my gift. But I have asked God to give me another one. Do you know what gift I have asked God to give me? The gift of divine healing. Real genuine healing. I remember when I went to the hospital I saw all of those sick people. I wanted to heal some of them. I really want that gift, to be able to say to a child that has been diagnosed with an incurable disease to get up, walk and be healed. I want to help people get well, heal broken souls, minds and bodies and not just speak words to and against a broken nation that I know can never be mended.

Is this not what our Lord did? But God gave me one of the toughest jobs there is - the job of a watchman. In these days, if you don't see what people want you to see, they get mad at you. They say, 'Don't tell me about the Huns at the gate, sharpening their battle axes and setting up their siege engines, see some good things. Me and my girlfriend are going to kick back and entertain ourselves, we don't want to hear any more negativity!" They want smooth things - they want me to lie and deceive them. The Lord says 'prepare'. Yet they want a sermon that 'confirms' the need for more sleep!

But whatever job God gives you brothers, be faithful in it and remember the parable of the 10 talents. Not all were given equal responsibility, but each were given a measure of responsibility and had to give account before their master when their job was complete. Don't start looking at why Joe has ten talents and you only have one. You don't have time for that, get busy on finding a way to multiply your talent, lest the Lord take it away and give it to him who has 10 already (Matt 25:28)!

I ask all of you to be faithful to YOUR calling. To be honorable in all of your affairs, to speak truth to your brothers, do unto them as you would have them do to you. Don't butt in to their affairs if they ask you not to. Don't give advice when you were not asked. Don't be pushy, unkind or mean. Always keep the golden rule in mind, and if you don't want it done to you, don't do it to anyone else. Respect the wishes of others. RESPECT.

Let me close by saying this - several months ago while praying, God let me in on a little secret. It was personal but I share it for a reason. He said that he is sore displeased with the disrespect others have shown me personally. Family members and friends who have dissed me behind my back. he made it plain he was very upset about it and was going to deal with it and when he did it, I would know he did it.

You see for years many people I knew did not understand my close walk with God. Many hate me and shown enormous disrespect towards me because I did not finish my 20 years in the USAF. I have been shown tremendous disrespect for 11 years of hard work, honorable service some of it during war and other military operations. Why did I get out? I was not going to sell out. I knew that the jobs I had and the things I knew, if I did not tow the line they would find a way to get rid of this Black man. I saw what happen to so many brothers who stayed in. In almost every case, they sold out. They sold out their people and their own souls for a retirement check.  I could not get with the things we did back in those days. The first Gulf war - brothers, that was a 100% set up. A long story and one that has been rehashed on the web, but it was a set up and you know what? I saw all the men, women and children we killed and just could not justify all that death for a Bush-Quayle 'set up'. I saw the evil of this system back then. Most folks don't see it. They don't want to. Seeing it may may them unpopular and seem 'un-American'. In the minds of these contemptible cowards, it is better to be a moral coward for mass murder than stand up with courage for what is right and be reviled for it. Don't get me wrong, I would never have joined the military if I did not believe that there weren't times when the nation needs to defend itself and even some of its vital interests with force. It is why I served. But looking around me today and seeing what this nation has become and some of the truly evil men and women who run it and are running around in it today, I cannot honestly say there are times when I regret having served. No, not always, but sometimes I do wish I had never joined. America has brought far too much bloodshed, death, violence, destruction and tears for me to be proud of what this once very great nation has become. I went in because I believed in the America of the Constitution and that the spread of freedom were good things and that American wanted to bring those things to others. But that is simply not true. Just look at what we did in Ukraine, deposing a Democratically elected leader (with a Covert coup)  to put some reprobate Nazi's into power for the express purpose of getting those same Nazis to start a race war against Russians. Now we ship arms to terrorists who chop of the heads of Christians. That was not the America I went in to fight for. 

But what America has been engaged in these past 20 some years is a what I call "the military campaign to empty the US treasury". The way they get away with it is by playing on the simplistic  patriotism of Americans. If you don't support the fraud waste and abuse over at the DOD, you are just not patriotic!! Trillions have been spent and much of it simply cannot be accounted for. They honestly don't know where the money went. I was not going to be just another mercenary killing large swaths of dark skinned people for a retirement check. If I wanted to murder people for money, a hit man pays a whole lot better and if you get with the right crime family, a high degree of legal immunity can be obtained. I was not going to sell my soul; not for the DOD, nor for 'Don Corleone', not for Joe Sixpac or Anna Alcoholic. It was then that I realized just how wicked our nation and world was and just how deceived the people of America really were about their nation and its leaders and what we were doing in secret.

It was only AFTER those experiences and having access to some highly classified programs and documents that I could see how the world really worked and why it is so incredibly screwed up, why our democracy will never work and why Americans are one day going to lose it all. It was only then, when I made the firm choice to leave the military that God knew I was ready to be used by him. He has taken my gifts and used them to his benefit and glory. No I am not loved. I am hated by many, mocked and reviled. But that goes with the territory. If folks loved me and did not consistently have a problem with my message, I would know for certain I was on the wrong track. So when folks rail at me, level all manner of false accusations at me mock me, my God and the Bible, that is when I know I am on the right track. I look at it like this - the hot air blows from the south and directs me to the north. I know where north is by knowing where the hot air is coming from.

Brothers, hear me on this - find out how YOU can BEST serve the Lord. Get in your prayer closet and ask God. He will hear you if you ask in faith knowing that those who serve him in spirit and in truth will of a certainty get rewards and honors from God that are beyond your wildest dreams and imagination! Seek God's face and then wait on God to answer. Yes, brothers, don't get ahead of God. If I had I would have fallen flat on my face! Pray and wait on God.

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
(Psa 27:14)

Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
(Psa 37:34)

Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.
(Pro 20:22)

May this scene or something similar be replayed for each and every one of my readers here who loves our Lord and heeds this message.


Break In Update

What is going on? What are they after? I honestly don't know but I will give you my guess and I don't think I am too far off. Jeffery Sterling was a reader here for many years. You can Google his name up. I am not 100% sure he was but I am 90% sure it was him (he did not use the name Sterling when talking with me). He leaked classified data to the NYT. Now I did not know it was him until months after he was recently arrested (last year), but for the last 18 months before I kicked hum out (mostly for not being honest with me, but other reasons that may not have been under his control) I kept getting a nudge in my spirit that something was just not right with him. I did not know what it was but more and more I just kept getting this 'nudge' that said to be careful of him. This is not meant to speak evil of him personally because I think he is really a very nice person doing what he thought was right at the time (over a decade ago).  But just to say that there was some kind of danger associated with him. A whole lot of trouble could have been avoided if he had leveled with me in the beginning.

But Mr. Sterling deserves your most sincere prayers. He needs them. Don't look down on him, he didn't do anything that most of the Agencies top people have done and got plea bargains for. Mr. Sterling is Black so they put him in jail.

Well, I think the Feds saw we talked and wanted to know what if anything he passed my way. That is why they went through my computers. But because I know I have some really evil and powerful enemies over at CIA, I can tell you that those people know how to turn and blackmail FBI agents to plant stuff on people the agency (or rather key agents personal little 'covert empires' - and they do have them) does not like. They key for them is to get the FBI/Justice to start an actual investigation. So they look to set people up (like me) to get them looking long and hard. There was no reason for them to be looking at me for over a year (and I am pretty sure it was that long, maybe longer). This is not a slam at the FBI or Justice which has some wonderful and very professional folks working in it. Just that occasional bad apple that slips past the screening process and they do slip past it and at times rise pretty high before they are smoked out.

But there may be another person who is talking to me that may be of interest. I say that because someone long ago dropped a hint that someone was interested in my work. Now the only people that would peak the interest of the Feds like that are Assange, Greenwald, Snowden and folks like that.

In short, none of those people are talking to me, but if they did, they would not use their real names. So I have no way of knowing if they are or aren't. But no one has passed on any files my way. I am pretty sure the FBI has gone through my systems at least once, twice if you count yesterday and I think I came home too early for them to finish whatever it was they were doing. I would not take anything like that in any event from a reader. But my enemies would want to see this investigation last as long as possible, break into the house plant stuff so that they FBI can find it.

That may be what yesterdays break in was all about.

Yes, this is how the game is played.

Brothers, they do not like me because I am Black, a Christian and have a brain that still works pretty good. Just like in the old slave days, the massa would always put the smart Negro's down...

...and keep them down.

I am unfazed by the break ins. This is par for the course for genuine Christians in our times. Sooner or later the devil is just going to start messing with you. In China they put you in jail, Iran the same, In Iraq they chop off your head, in Sudan they starve you out. In Nigeria they gun you down and in Mexico they cut off your water.

 So, I have to put these things in perspective. I have been Black a long time and a Christian as well and know that I will never get a fair shake in this once great nation as long as it would rather spit in God's eye than honor him and humbly give him thanks.

That is how you need to pray

16 July

FYI: Another Day Another Break In.

While out and about (at the Gym), It looks like someone broke into my house... again. But This time I am pretty sure it was some Feds. I think I came home sooner than they thought as they did not unhook my desktop from my router (cabled) as I always do when I am not on it. Also one of my Fire detectors was laying on the floor in my bedroom and some kind of steel bracket was sitting on top of my desktop.

What are these guys looking for? Who knows. The simple  fact is, I am a Black man in America with a Blog and some brains and that really pisses off some folks in the US government. Black folks should be picking cotton shuffling their feet with some watermelon in their mouths, not writing, so their twisted mentality goes INSIDE key and powerful parts of the Intelligence community.

Now I am pretty sure that this is all some kind of set up and someone in the Intel Community wants to shut me down. I am not even sure some of these break-ins are even being done under the cover of law. There may be some rouge people inside LE or the Intel Community who are running some kind of game. Again I just don't know.

FYI just in case they came in and started downloading some illegal fines on my computer, I did purchased some gasoline with a credit card right after my workout. I try and make a credit card purchase whenever I am out of the house these days. So I can prove I was not at home when the FBI or whatever Federal agency breaks into my home while I am out.

But the more likely scenario is that their investigation may be winding down and they came in to take some spyware off of my computer and hidden other spy-tech in my home. But I am not sure.

But I ask, don't they have something better to do? I am about the quietest most peaceful man this side of the grave and why they would want to harass me is really quite beyond me, other than a couple of nominal Christians who may have tried to set me up who have turned on the Lord. But again, I really just don't know.

I do not know if they are done. I do not think so, but I think the heavy stuff may be over. No more lurkers outside my home and other 'interesting' happenings; the honeypot open wireless access point (that attracted every freak in the neighborhood) has been turned off and a group of people who always kept to themselves and had lots of strange comings and goings of cars with out-of-state license plates all suddenly moved away. All this happened not very long ago and within the space of a few weeks. Yes, I have been watching things very closely here the past year and a half, when I think all this spying on me started... and I was called 'paranoid' by someone who was getting all the info about me and claimed to be my 'buddy'.  In any event, I am not going to be like my false friend and set any of you up for Uncle Sam's antics because they suffer from boredom and are 'too busy' to arrest cops who gun down the brothers in cold blood. If they have to spy on my boring (quiet and uneventful)  life, they just don't have enough to do!!

Agent A: "What's he doing Joe?"
Agent B: "He just got off the computer and is now in the kitchen watching some black and white western and cooking a hamburger.
Agent A :"Does this guy get out much at all?"
Agent C: "Nope"
Agent A: "How old is that rattle-trap Jalopy he drives? It's gotta be at least 20 years old! I'll walk by it and get the vin number and we can look it up."
Agent B: Wake Agent D up, he's been napping for last 2 hours!!

They don't know I really do go in the hole every month and really MUST watch what I spend.   You got nut jobs gunning down the brothers in Church, cops shooting folks in the back, Wall Street walking away with trillions foreign governments disappearing young white girls (15-18) in America (to be shipped overseas as sex toys)... and they are going to investigate my sorry behind!! Is it any wonder the nations going to hell in a handbasket?!! Anyway, I did want to clarify that with all of you.

But of this you can be sure. Quietness and humility in me does not mean cowardice and fear in me. Of this you can be assured. I ain't gonna stop. The more my enemies hate what I do, the more I know how important it is. Let these cowardly men who too often fill America's pulpits wet themselves, I will stand up like a man of God and tell it like it is.

But if they want trouble, of this they can be assured. The God whom I serve is more than capable of looking out for me and all those who honor, trust and obey him.

 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
(Isa 54:17)

Well, enough of my insignificant problems, lets look at how many others are suffering.

Mexico, Where Persecution Dwells.

Recently five protestants were put in jail. The reason? Some ancient law that makes protestants pay some kind of religious fine. FYI, the people in Chiapas are anything but rich. So those who cannot pay, wind up in jail. The good news is that they have been released.

Land has been seized and public utilities have been cut off for no other reason than they are Protestant. The Mexican government has refused to act. CSW has a report on Mexico here.

China: Lawyers Fear A Major Wave Of Persecution In Wake Of Detentions

It is difficult to get a good read on what is really getting the Chinese concerned. I suspect there is much more than meets the eye and that China is looking for foreign destabilizers in her midst.

Baby Parts For Sale By Planned Parenthood

These unspeakable crimes by our nation truly appall and sadden me. How could some one who calls themselves Christian support the political machine that allows, supports and defends this?

Deceit. Only a Christian who is under the control of the devil, rather than the Holy Spirit.  That is how. Allowing oneself to be fooled by the devil is not and will not be an excuse on judgment day. 'I didn't know' isn't going to cut it because in every single case, the real answer is, they didn't want to know or even worse, did not even care.

Iranian Christians Thank  God  For Nuke Deal

The nuke deal, its ramifications, its possibility of real success (this is just the deal, both sides must keep their commitments) will be talked about as more info comes out about it and the political dust settles. This has some serious regional power play effects and is likely to shift power considerably in the near term. I will try and talk much more about it in the weeks ahead (for insiders!). I will try and give you intelligent comment and analysis because right now, there is a lot of disinformation and really ignorant spin on the deal coming mostly from the Presidents detractors and those who have pushed for war against Iran for a very long time.

Christian sites and blogs who are tied in and paid for by the religious right and the US intelligence community are no exception. They are there to put forth a narrative that supports their richest donors - the GOP linked religious right.

Catholic Nuns Lose Case On Contraception/Obamacare Case

Slowly American Christians are being forced to support evil using the laws this President has passed. Gay Marriage? Many businesses are being fined for not baking cakes for gay weddings and other such nonsense. Would you as a Christian bake a cake with a candy penis sticking out of it or cater a party with Homosexuals who vilify and attack you for your faith? That would be akin to forcing a Black man to cater a KKK rally or forcing a Jew to bake one with a swastika on it,  Something each would find HIGHLY offensive.  Could you imagine "come over her nigger, and pour me some beer" and the Black man not able to say "no I am not going to cater to some racists" because if you do, you could get fined? This is the kind of mentality these militant gays are pushing on Christians.

No, brothers this is an assault on Christians but it is being done by stealth by a President who has only once and only under some political pressure, raised his voice up against all the Christians being slaughtered in the world today, often killed by US arms and by Islamic groups covertly under US control. ... support ordered by the only man legally capable of ordering it, President Obama.

Germany Refugee's Nazi's And Hate

Keep your eyes on this brothers, these Nazi's are powerfully protected and backed. That is why they got America's first Black President to give arms and other material support to racist Nazi brigades in Ukraine. Again, these racists got some very serious political and financial top cover.

Assyrians: No Rest For The Weary

Todd Daniels, Regional Manager for the Middle East
and Sandra Elliot

07/10/2015 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) - "Within minutes, tens of thousands of people fled their homes," Nuri Kino, founder of A Demand for Action, explained to International Christian Concern (ICC).

"We actually heard them [ISIS] crying takbir (God is greater)," Ahmed Siraj Aji Mohamed, a former resident of Hassakeh told IRIN News.

These are the first and second hand recollections of those who fled the northeastern Syrian city of Hassakeh on June 25. Islamic State militants entered the city by the southern neighborhoods reigniting familiar fears and terror for the largely Assyrian Christian population. Families, some seeking only temporary refuge in the city, faced the decision of chancing death and abduction or running north.

A Demand for Action told ICC that an estimated 60,000 people have been displaced within the city while another 10,000 people have fled to Qamishli and other areas. Assyrian International News Agency reported that approximately 2,000 Assyrian families were among those who fled north. This is the fourth attack of its kind in Hassakeh but it has been the strongest one as ISIS was able to gain control of multiple neighborhoods in the city.

Since the initial incursion on the 25th, Kurdish and Assyrian/Syriac militias have reclaimed much of the city and cleansed Hassakeh of terrorists; however land mines planted by the militants still litter the area. This is a single win in a string of losses for the people of northeastern Syria.

An Ancient Community Under Threat

Assyrians in the northern regions of modern day Iraq and Syria have roots dating back to the third millennium BCE. Christianity came to the area in the 3rd century, which is over 300 years before the birth of Islam and well over 1000 years before the discovery of the New World. Syria itself is named after these ancient people.

With the growing face of Islamic radicalism in the Middle East and the direct targeting of Christian demographics, Assyrians are now facing exile and execution for their belief and dedication to Jesus.

Entire Villages Drained of Christians, Again

This past February, ISIS invaded the northeastern Khabour area of Syria and ruthlessly drained around 30 villages of their Assyrian Christian populace. According to Unrepresented Nations and People's Organization (UNPO), over 200 of these captives are still being held by the jihadi militants who have demanded $100,000 ransom per prisoner, a price few in the region can ever expect to meet. There has been no real effort made to rescue these Christians, many of whom are women and children.

It's a dire state to live in, an atrocity that seems unthinkable.

Yet, we are reminded that the Assyrians of the Levant region are no strangers to atrocity, having suffered two genocides and a civil war in the past 100 years.

Assyrians, alongside of Armenians, were targeted by the Young Turk's genocide during and after WWI. In 1933, with the formation of the new Iraqi state, they were massacred yet again, causing many to flee to the Hassakeh region of Syria. And for decades they suffered under Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi Ba'ath party. The plight of these in Syria has been most serious with the outbreak and longevity of the Syrian Civil War.

Now as the country has been devastated by war for over four years with opposition groups, Islamic extremists, and the Syrian regime battling each other, Christians are not just collateral damage but prime targets in the conflict

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) reports that, "Christians have become trapped and squeezed between the fire of the Assad Government and the hell of the extremist groups."

Despite Bashar Al-Assad's distinct claim to protect minorities, 63 percent of Christian worship places destroyed in the war have been targeted by government forces. Missiles unfortunately do not differentiate between Christian and non-Christian facilities. This is second tiered, but still an added burden to the suffering ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other extremists have inflicted on the Assyrian Christians.

"It Is Imperative We Find Another Solution"

With no protection from the outside world or even their own leaders, Assyrian Christians have been forced to take up arms of defense. The Patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church, Ignatius Aphrem II recently visited Qamishli and called on the youth to fight.

"We are not the type of people who want to carry weapons," the Patriarch explained in his address, "but because the army is not able to protect us, it is imperative that we find another solution."

There seems to be no rest or refuge for the Assyrian population. The world today continues to turn a blind eye to the suffering of this ancient and deeply rooted people group. Eshu Paul, an Assyrian Christian now living in Canada, expressed his concern to ICC in an interview, "If nothing is being done [for] Assyrians in the next decade, I don't think there will be any Christians left."

We must not allow these fears to manifest and be proven legitimate. The world, specifically the Christian world, has a responsibility to help these brothers and sisters in Christ.

Will it take another genocide for the church to wake up and see the needs of its own?

If so, we need only look to Hassakeh to realize it is already happening.

An Open Letter To Pastors: Stand Or Fall!

Fairy Tales For A Gullible Nation

A Note To Readers Of The Public Side Of Watson's Web
I sense a change is coming in the world. It may be a very big one and it may not be long off. I have discussed many of these things to my insiders and will continue to as long as that is possible and God keeps this door of ministry open. When I say change I do mean change. Big change that is likely to effect all of us in the months and years ahead. These trade agreements are just part of those changes. For some time now I have been telling my insiders that there are some key things going on the economy and the world and what they mean. I have also laid out these things along prophetic lines and created  some prophetic maps and future divisions of our world that I think are probable. Outsiders may think I have been idle but I have been busier than ever these past couple of years (well almost!) as a private site.

Some of you may ask, "why don't you share them brother Mark"? I will tell you. I have been gently chided by the Lord for casting too many peals before the swine and when I did not stop, he chided me a little harder.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
(Mat 7:6)

The material on this site is very special. I am not bragging. I know that it is. God gave me a gift and I am going to use it where it will do the most good.  I have had the most powerful and wealthiest men on this earth frequent this site. Why? Because the views here are informed, thoughtful backed up with facts and any conjecture is clearly labeled as such. Some very violent and evil men have worked very hard to shut this site down and just recently I was under a serious Federal investigation. Yes, they went through my computers with all that Snowdenesque FBI malware and am fairly certain covertly broke into my house one day when I was out and about.  Why? Mostly because of my trust in a couple of nominal Christians. Both lied to me. I am still trying to work out if these men were sent by the devil to destroy this site. I don't think so, but frankly, as I look back on a number of things and events and place them sequentially, I can only say that the jury is still out on that one. Anyone who lies to me like these two did and get me into the kinds of trouble I was in... I can rule nothing out and won't. Both claim to be Christians and both told me bald faced lies, have been totally evasive, deliberately misdirected me and never repented of these things.  Both work in the intel community. I am starting to think a conscience removal operation or an ethical bypass surgery is a prerequisite for employment in those agencies!! The thing of it is, I just don't think either of them believe that what they did was wrong!! Brothers, and sisters, if you are in any kind of position of ministry in any part of the world and one of these guys shows up, know that it is their job to gain your trust so they can stab you in the back. That is how they earn their bread. That is how they get 'assets' in far off places. If you are a pastor of a Church beware, they will leave you in jail for the rest of your life after you helped them do whatever it is they asked of you. Don't endanger your ministry, flock or witness trying to play 'James Bond'.  In the end you won't get a knighthood and the bad buy, but rather a cell block and prison chains.   But the Lord gave me a powerful dream a couple of weeks ago that really clarified a few things. I will not relay it here. For you FBI guys who were doing your job, I have no animosity towards you. I think some one fed you a line of crap about me and you believed it and ran with it. That is not your fault. Your job is to investigate and that is what you did (and may still be doing). I am fairly certain that this was a political investigation motivated by folks who don't like Christians and certainly don't like no Black folks!! There is a huge backstory that I will not put on the Public site.

Suffice it to say I got some very, very powerful enemies and some of them are highly schooled in the arts of deception, the 'set up' and misdirection. Dear readers, this site survival in the future depends on people who are willing to support it and keeping it small and off the radar and blogopshere drumbeat (the political-religious 'narrative' game). I have not, do not and will not take money from those political machines or those Intel agencies that run other major Christians sites. That is why I am dependent on donations and they are not. I am fortunate I am alive today and can only thank God for that. But he had been warning for many years that I was telling people too much and that I needed to limit the scope of my readers and to cease trusting someone I did like a brother.  I deeply regret having befriended this person and trusting him. But it was my fault that I did -  I admit it and repent of it.

I did not do either of these things God asked me to until I was basically forced to. Since then, in many respects, this site has gotten a lot better, less stressful, more fun (though very tiring) and I have far fewer ravers and and mentally unstable people writing and harassing me. In fact, since I went private the emails I have gotten have been almost universally positive and encouraging. The tone of my initial postings going private put a lot of people off here on the home page. It was designed to. When I said I did not want the kinds of people I had hanging around, that is exactly what I meant. Most of those kinds of 'Christians' will fall away and betray when things get hot... and they may get hot sooner than you think.

I realize there is a dearth of really good prophetic and news related material from a solid Biblical rather than a far right political perspective on the web. I know a lot of people are hungry, even starving for some really good information and perspective to help them make sense of the insanity that has gripped the earth.  After 14 years, I just had to call the free site quits. I could not go on with the site the way it was. Financially and Spiritually it was too taxing on me. There are still thousands of pages of material that are still here for FREE, so I am just not hearing any more whining about going private. Do you really think sites like this are worth it? Truthfully, I just don't think most of you do... right now.

Since I went private a lot of people have stepped up and understood that if they want good information and perspective, they are going to have to support it. Almost all of you reading this here pay for cable. You pay for MSNBC, CNN etc as well as HBO and all those others to spew lies and garbage into your homes. That is why they are still in business and so many Christian ministries and Churches are having trouble or are gone. YOU fund the devil, not the Christians. You want to watch two gay men have sex? Watch an episode of Game of Thrones (I was shocked when I saw that at someones house who used to call himself a Christian!!). And Christians are PAYING for that!!! But what gets me and I know it angers the Lord is that these same Christians won't support Christian ministries. They will always have an excuse why they can't or won't do it, usually railing against the person who is doing the work of God on a shoestring budget. "How am I going to watch Californication if I help you?" Is their unspoken response.

I am not going to see this happen to Watson's Web - no matter how many folks whine about 'give me free stuff'. However those genuinely cash strapped or poor are rarely turned away... I don't think I ever have. If I listened to some of these so called Christians who got mad at me calling me names because I went private, this site would be gone by now. They cursed me, called me names railed all manner of accusations but would not support me. These are the types of Christians that have destroyed so many ministries with their twisted 'evil steward' mentality. They are like a plague of locusts... eating up everything and leaving nothing behind... not even a thank you, instead I got a f- you from them. Then they come back and say, there are so few good sites out here... why is that brother Mark? Please come back! I have to hold my hands back from the keyboard to keep from saying something wholly unchristian.

I did not want to go private, but it was the only way to save the site. It was not my failing, it was not God's failing, it was the failing of poor stewards in the kingdom. But God sent in an angel (from Texas)  and many men and women of God to assist in this important work. May God return your blessings 100 fold in this world and the next all you who give to genuine Christian ministries; weather they support orphans, the homeless, the persecuted, battered kids, evangelists, teachers, preachers, prophets or healers. Amen!!

This is one thing I have to give the Islamic world credit for, at least they financially support their religion. In Christianity we too often support our enemies. That is why the Islamic world is moving into the west with such lighting speed. They take their religion seriously. Christians take the NFL far more seriously than they take their God... with a  few exceptions. More here and here.

Understand, I am not against all TV.  I am speaking against a spirit that has gotten control of so many Christians that they find the devils entertainment more important than Christian ministry... any Christian ministry (not just this small site) and truth be told that spirit is far more prevalent than most know. What is the average Cable Bill? $120 a month? How many people tithe/offer $120 a month? What is more important to these Christians... based on what they DO (not say).

Listen if that is your mentality I just am not going to waste my time informing, helping and ministering to you. I am not going to teach you algebra when you still are in swaddling clothes, spiritually speaking. Nor am I going to be an 'enabler' for that kind of twisted thinking. We are in a very serious spiritual battle and here are millions of Christians funneling billions of dollars into Hollywood who has spent millions in political fights to undermine Christians in America. If that is where your head is at... I don't want you as a member and don't want your money. As long as you feel its OK to arm your enemy and have excuses as to why you cannot help out God's workmen - I view you as a potential 'collaborator', enemy spy and a 'problem child' in the camp. You cannot have a renewed Christlike mind with your TV projecting an image of two men humping in bed... and you paying good money for it! Brothers, take care that you don't bring a curse on your finances over this misuse of God's blessings. So step back and consider... there is entertainment outside of Cable. The Internet has some great stuff for free or very, very inexpensive. TV is not what it used to be, family friendly TV shows of the 50's and 60's... its gone.  Today, it's satan friendly and if you step back and consider what I say carefully, you will know that what I am saying is right. No, you may not be able to get your favorite shows if you cut the cord but that is how they get you paying so much. This is how they make you a cable addict. Doling out all that dough for your digital 'fix'.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
(Rom 12:2)

Can you take the digital addict test?  How do you take it? You have to be willing to save some money. Are you willing to do that? Here is how. Take six months off of cable. I know internet is pretty much essential these days, for email, bills, etc. But take the addict test and get rid of just the cable for 6 months and see if you can survive without it. FYI most cable companies hide the under $50 a month internet only access from their subscribers.  Maybe try just using some kind of internet TV device. Save yourself hundreds of dollars over the six months and take it. If you cannot take it you are indeed an addict and are probably in denial.  Let me put it to you this way as well. As you watch the world's morals paraded in front of your eyes hour after hour after hour in today's modern TV shows, you are indeed being conditioned. But in order for the conditioning to work you cannot be aware of just how you are being conditioned.  Your eyes really do glaze over as those digital messages become embedded in your cerebral cortex and slowly you begin to adopt the world's morality and spirituality. I think modern TV and the conflicting and often godless morality is one of the biggest unspoken challenges the Church faces today. Pastors won't talk about it because most of them are addicts too. When I made the break from it it was far, far easier than I thought it would be. I spent 79 bucks and got a Roku device and watch much of my TV completely free. Christian TV is abundant as well as news sites foreign language news and many other very interesting channels. FREE!

Folks individuals who pay all that money and cannot help out with Christian ministries,...I am not going to let such into my site. I got enough problems, I am not going to knowingly take on any more. The insiders page is for mature Christians who know or genuinely want to know the times we are in, what they mean and what we as true believers in Christ ought to be doing. It is not for the worldly and compromising minions who think they are saved and probably aren't. They have no intention of actually doing these things. They talk the talk but that is all.

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
(Jam 1:22)

I know many of you don't like when I talk about money. Well money is why Gay Marriage is now the law of the land; its why the TPP is going to steal your job (and for most of you, it will), it's why they will soon force kids to be vaccinated in California and Christian sites and Churches have got troubles and Islam is rising. Christ talked quite a bit about money, particularly as it relates to stewardship.  Do you want to know who is to blame for the Supreme Court's decision on Gay Marriage and the trend in place with a President who endorsed it publicly? I am not blaming the gay's, at least not totally. I am blaming American Christians who armed the homosexual movement with billions of dollars who then put that money in the pockets of politicians, talking heads in the media and crooked Judges to rule the way they did. Nothing is done in Washington without a check being written and that includes Supreme Court decisions. That money came from somewhere. Much of it came from the American Christian who pays for this junk in their homes but won't help Christian ministers. That is why I am not speaking a negative word about what the gays did. The lost world will always act in a lost fashion - fish swim, birds fly and sinners sin. There is nothing new in that.  I am speaking against how Christians helped them do it and now whine about it because they have not the level of maturity and spiritual strength to just say 'no' to NBC, TimeWarner, Disney, Universal Studios, Pixar, etc. The same Christians who weep and whine about Gay Marriage now and will surely pop that cable check on the 1st... to pay the actors in more sexual Olympics and perhaps soon, the legalization of pedophilia or the televised executions of Christians.

I know many people want me to come back and be free again and let every liar, satan worshiper and covert officer on earth into the site so they can steal the work I do and use it for evil purposes as many have in the past. I deeply regret that. People took my analysis (some stole it when I specifically told them not to and then called me 'friend' and 'brother'.... after they robbed me) and used it to further goals for which I find utterly abhorrent. We are talking about people in the pay of the US government. This is another reason I went private. Evil men with evil purposes used my material in ways I never intended.

So those of you who are mad at me and want all the free goodies for yourself and don't want to help out, "Watson's Free All You Can Eat Diner" is closed for good. Don't come whining to me about coming back... it ain't gonna happen. If you are a mature Christian, one who has a few years walk with Christ under his belt, deeply wants to be saved more than anything in the world and want to do as Christ commanded 'Watch' in these most perilous times, then the private site is most defiantly for you. But that is a very, very small number of American/Western Christians. For the most part, in the past I had to deal with Christians who were operating a very basic level.

Brothers and sisters, you reap what you sow. You sowed nationwide sodomy with your money and now you've got it.

Finally let me leave you all with this. Most of your Christian sites today are not being paid for by Christians. Yes, there are some small blogs and sites that are, but for the most part your large Christian sites are being funded and run by some very dark forces. I cannot stress that enough. when you see a big site with all of those newswire stories ask yourself who is paying the bills. Those AP, Reuters, AFP wires services are very expensive. Then you have to pay staff writers, graphic artists.... folks that stuff costs SERIOUS MONEY. I know who is paying for a whole bunch of them and those who control them are NOT Christians. Their job is to steer the narrative in Christian political circles towards issues that they deem important and steer you away from issues that may hurt the interest of those who own them. I am not guessing and I am not making this up. The devil's got Control of much of the Christian internet (and so called 'African American/Black media' as well) and most Christians don't know it and don't want to know it. Bait and switch is the oldest intelligence tactic in the book... besides the female honey trap.

I have gone 'behind the lines' because I know who is behind this and know that they will not be satisfied until they get this site and one other site... one way or another. They have made it their goal. Why? We are not under their thumb. The two of us are the only US sites with any real traffic and significant period of time on the web that are not connected to the political/intelligence/satanic machines in Washington. I know none of you want to hear that, but there it is. That is how far the devil has got American Christendom on the internet.

Why am I telling you this? Get ready. Something big may be happening sooner than you think. I have laid out to insiders some of the major pressure points. They are real and some of them have been deliberately downplayed in the media. When Change comes, you may find that your favorite sites are not available and when they come back they are not the same. I have gone private for a reason. I saw something very, very ugly on the horizon the day the US supported Nazi-ism in Ukraine. Then I knew that the President was fully captured by the Underground Reich. Because he has no independent political machine (the illegal machines that run both political parties that blackmail/murder/ and do covert operations), he has to play ball with them. I knew the plan was going to be accelerated. I just did not know exactly which avenues they would take. Things are somewhat clearer now. I think I will be around no matter what at least for a while until they kill me... and they probably will and every true Christian who serves Christ. If you think they won't, ask some Christians in Iraq and Syria just how serious the devil is about killing Christians. If you don't think it's happening, just go to any major search engine and type in "ISIS Killing Christians", while American Christians switch between football games on TV.

Don't freak out, we have a little time, but not much. They may be able to put the breaks to the economic and political boulders heading our way, but I am not holding my breath.

So don't expect anything more here from me for outsiders for the reasons I just stated other than the occasional less important posts. I have been freed from serving the masses and the ingrates. God has given me a smaller scope and much nicer and easier group of  Christians to get along with and deal with. They appreciate the long hours and hard work done here. I am happy to call them friends, brothers and sisters.

Many of you have taken these internet age and those who work in it for granted. This was a brief period where a lot of powerful information could get out in a relatively unrestricted manner. I am fairly certain that is going to change, very soon, slowly at first, but much more as time moves on. Think those trade agreements and the stuff they have buried in them... and they do have stuff buried in them. Something to consider....

That and our world may change sooner and more significantly than you think.

Finally this post is not about self interest. Some may think that this is what this message is about. Do you see a donate button here on this page? If I were 'greedy' I would have one. I took that down over a year ago. No this is about far more than just this small rather insignificant site. This is about what millions of Christians are doing with the bounty God has given them and what the result of their poor stewardship has brought them. So I am not hearing any complaints about the Ruling on gay marriage. If Christians want a Christian nation, then they need to act like Christians and stop shopping with Sodom. Giving the devil all the ammunition and slumbering in front of a flatsscreen TV. No brothers, I see this ruling from a very different perceptive because I am on the front lines and hear the rationalizations and excuses for wasting so much money on those digital demons. So next time you are inclined to complain about why the nation is heading to hell in a handbasket, go over your finances and ask yourself what kind of steward you are with what God has given you and stop pointing the finger at everyone else. Turn your critical eye on yourself, not the Supreme Court who is just responding the political winds in the nation. Winds that you have funded with your money.

The hour is too late for you to be playing games. Brothers, there is much work to be done, Christians in need, the gospel to be preached, Churches and godly assemblies to hold together and ministries to support, and waking up the slumbering masses of nominal Christians. Western Christians, most of them are just going to have to start thinking and behaving very differently if they are going to be spiritually victorious in the days ahead. Their minds need to be renewed by the Holy Ghost and their priorities rearranged by Christ. These are dark days brothers and we must make ourselves ready. We must do the work we have been called to WHILE THERE IS STILL TIME!!

I must work the works of him that sent me, whilst it is day:
 the night cometh, when no man can work.
(Joh 9:4)

TPP: Since NAFTA, Black Economy Has Collapsed

In the generation since passage of NAFTA, the Black economy has collapsed, largely due to the flight of manufacturing jobs to low wage foreign shores. On Barack Obama’s watch, Black wealth fell to one-twentieth of median white household wealth, making it statistically impossible for African Americans to ever hope to reach parity with whites, short of a revolution. TPP will hasten the pace of social and economic decline in the United States – the real legacy of Barack Hussein Obama. - Black Agenda Report

The American people have no idea the economic storm that will hit them over the next 10 years after the TPP, TISA and TTIP pass... and they all will pas. The stuff buried in those agreements are going to wreck havoc on American jobs, businesses (not so much the very large corporations) and property.

Do you remember how the Native Americans were disposssed out of their land?

What goes around...

Why don't you know? The President has made it a federal crime, prosecutable with multi-year sentences for anyone who dares try and tell you, just what is in those agreements. If you note any leaking that is done is done on clauses within them is from OVERSEAS, where US law and Barak Obama cannot get them.

The only thing I can tell you is that a whole lot of working class white Americans are soon going to be the new black.


Global Capitalist Crisis And The TPP

This link (above) is the real story out there that few are really talking about; the idea, enshrined in the TPP that corporations are just as powerful, perhaps more so than governments. This is a very good article that goes back into some history and really tries to put the TPP in its proper perspective both for working people and people of color.

I hope you get a chance to read it before you read my comments as well as this piece.

What NAFTA and now the TPP are is a massive and unadvertised restructuring of the global trading, legal and political system. It is hard to understate the significant changes that will transpire once this agreement is passed.

Brothers and sisters, this all falls in line with the Surveillance State - The Global elite know that their policies have and will continue to  create more and more impoverished people who will see their livelihoods and any hope for the future vanish in trade deals for which they were neither properly appraised nor consulted on. The entire agreement has been kept as a greater secret than the Snowden documents.

These agreements give corporations the right to sue governments if they feel their laws reduce competitiveness. Environmental laws, labor and even civil rights laws as well. Note that the author makes some very key points, like that it is China that is funding the NAFTA superhighway. What if one day the XWZ corporation says that civil rights laws and hiring quota's are anti-competitive and that hiring minority workers in some fields reduces their penetration of foreign markets? What if they say that any statement made that is disparaging about poisons in our food is a capital offense - remember these treaties trump our constitution. Our legal system will have no effect on their determinations and YOU cannot be represented at the ISDS - only corporations can. This is what the TPP is really all about.

For years now, we've been warning about the problematic "ISDS" -- "investor state dispute settlement" mechanisms that are a large part of the big trade agreements that countries have been negotiating. As we've noted, the ISDS name is designed to be boring, in an effort to hide the true impact -- but the reality is that these provisions provide corporate sovereignty, elevating the power of corporations to put them above the power of local governments. If you thought "corporate personhood" was a problem, corporate sovereignty takes things to a whole new level -- letting companies take foreign governments to special private "tribunals" if they think that regulations passed in those countries are somehow unfair. - Techdirt

So what does this really mean to us working people, us Black folks, Latino's Asians and Native Americans, and working class White folks? Agreements like this are of extreme importance and that is why they keep them secret for so long. They don't want you to know what is in them or explain the arcane, legalese to you even if you read it. It will mean that corporations will have ultimate, legal and constitutional power over your lawmakers because treaties trump the Constitution. The ISDS (investor state dispute settlement) will be a higher court that the US supreme court. I will not belabor this point, there are some excellent clued in folks who understand just what this means and they have some fantastic blogs and sites. A simple websearch with the terms 'TPP corporate sovereignty' or 'TPP and corporate power' will tell you what you need to know. Did you know that the TPP reduces human trafficking and child labor to misdemeanors? Yes, Really.

I expect one days to find that some kinds of slavery will not be criminalized and corporations will be able to sue the government to do away with civil rights laws. Believe me, I am not off my rocker. These new trade agreements can be used to do just that. Anything that corporations find that hinders their business and profits they can sue governments to have removed. While we do not know the details of what scope the ISDS courts will have, all indications are at this point in time is that they will be limitless.

"ISDS would allow foreign companies to challenge U.S. laws—and to potentially pick up huge payouts from taxpayers—without ever stepping foot in a U.S. court. Here’s how it would work. Imagine that the United States bans a toxic chemical that is often added to gasoline because of its health and environmental consequences. If a foreign company that makes the toxic chemical opposes the law, it would normally have to challenge it in a U.S. court. But with ISDS, the company could skip the U.S. courts and go before an international panel of arbitrators. If the company won, the ruling couldn’t be challenged in U.S. courts, and the arbitration panel could require America's taxpayers to cough up millions—and even billions—of dollars in damages."  - Senator Elizabeth Warren

Wow! Do you understand what this really means. The threat here is no little one because not only will this court have this kind of power, it will not even be populated with independent Judges. Only corporate lawyers need apply, they haggle amongst themselves, come up with a conclusion and the country must abide by it! Now do you understand? Now remember this because it is key  - Treaties override the US Constitution and all US law. Now I am not going to belabor this, those of you who come by here regularly know I have been talking about this on and off for quite some time. The TPP is a major step forward towards the corporate control of all of the world's governments as it cedes to them a power that supersedes all national laws. This is not the narrative that those pushing this agreement want discussed, but there it is if you take the time to look.

So what does this really mean?

Well, from my perspective, I see things from a larger view and from that view I see this. The US administration and its allies on the GOP right see the TPP as a strategic blow against China, who has done wonders using a completely different and far more successful brand of trade. Rather than pushing these huge over arching trade deals written in dark rooms, they do deals that are bi-lateral and stick with just trade issues. They do it in such a ways that it bolsters the Chinese economy and the well being of its citizens. Not only that but usually with those trade deals China cooks up a currency deal as well. But in America, the trade deals invariably weaken the state, removes jobs, reduces the well being of its citizens and makes the nation more and more dependent on foreign borrowings to maintain a lifestyle that it can no longer afford. The TPP will indeed damage the nation as any deal done in darkness and secrecy is clearly designed to do.

Yet the American elite continues to push these agreements that does not bolster the position of the nation or the livelihoods of its citizens. Rather it bolsters the profits of a very small clique of elitists and corporations. In short, these deals are the capstone on the neo-liberal theory of economics, but they are neither strategically beneficial nor are they based upon sound long term economics. They are  based more and more upon a system of corporate-lobbyist power that has been able to use the power of the state, not to bolster the nation, its position in the world or the livelihood of its people, but has only given them more power to destroy the environment, the livelihoods of millions of people around the world and generally create intolerable situations in many parts of the world that now have people's movements that have turned from anger, to protest to violence to make their voices heard. Again, this is the real reason all these spy programs exist. They know what they are doing and plan in dealing with the poor man the old fashioned way - spy on, demonize, repress, intern and kill.

The TPP is will not be a strategic victory, but a failure. It will be billed as a great success when it passes (and it will) and we will see about 18 months of exuberance in the markets, but all the while jobs will go away, protections will be stripped away and more and more people will slip into poverty, water will be undrinkable, air will start to be fouled, slaves will be more and more apparent and kids will be sold off to the rich in far reaching nations to be their playthings... legally.

This broken model cannot lead America into prosperity, but rather make large sections of it look like Bangladesh. That is the only thing that can come from this. Yes, your major corporations will see significant boosts to their balance sheets, but they will park the jobs in Malaysia and their money in the Cayman Islands. No one will really benefit but the 1% and this is where I think China has the advantage. They are not going to let corporations get control of everything. The sheer size of their population demands centralized control with some system to address human needs and the aspirations of the working class. This is what is lost on the American elite. The corporations who have pushed this agreement are too short sighted and profit driven to see that the trade and economic model they are pushing will not lead to anywhere but a world of permanent conflict, terrorism, poverty and misery.

History is key and that is why I linked to this story today, it gives this agreement a better understanding that your usual blog post.

Note: I have been talking a bit out economics and these new constitution trumping trade agreements (there are two other besides the TPP!)  and putting it in a perspective that gets to the real problem and  then lines it up with Bible prophecy.

It is later than you think!

Three Hours, Forty Seven Minutes

That is how long it took. 3hrs, 47min.

More Here.

It ain't about terrorism and this bulk collection program, I strongly suspect is a smokescreen for something much larger that they don't want the people to know about.

Forget about the left right political claptrap the spin and the lies. The simple fact is, we have a President and a National Security establishment that is no longer under the control of Congress and the laws it passes and we have a President who is afflicted with the worst kind of duplicitous behavior, campaigning against the Patriot act and now working against the law to keep it going.

The next story will explain to you one of the key reasons why this is so. Our leaders, elected leaders are no longer in control of the nation. The Deep State runs and is running this nation right into the ground. The President does what he is told or they have a pine box waiting for him...

..and his family.

Yes, there are terrorist threats to our nation. AQ, ISIS and a host of other crazies would love to hit us with a spectacular attack. But the deeper and greater threat to America comes from within the Intelligence community itself a very deep dark, violent and utterly rapacious element that has virtual control over the key levers of the National Security State as well as key members of all three  branches of government and key people in the press as well.

That is the major threat. A terrorist may be able to blow up a building, the rouge National Security State can put millions of Americans in camps with no trial or charges,

When a sitting President can show such contempt for the law, you know America and our liberties are in very, very serious jeopardy. Regardless of what you think of Obama, he is merely a footnote, a very small asterisk in a long series of laws and events that brought us to this point. He is not your problem, the deep state is.

But they were clever when they picked him to get into the White House. Lefties and Black America are too scared to criticize him. So they play make believe. These are the two group who would ordinarily protest against such laws, having been too often the victim of them in the past.  They pretend none of this is happening and the right gets called 'racist' for pointing out the obvious.

Will The Patriot Act Die?

Let us hope so. Let us sincerely hope so. I think finally, the handwriting is on the wall. The Patriot Act as we know it may indeed be dead when we wake up June 1st. The debate has been a hot one and one that has not always been as well informed as it should have been. This is because almost all of the regulations and administrative details of all of America's surveillance programs are highly classified. But let us get one thing straight - The real problem is not the red herring that is being talked about in the media, the 'bulk phone' collection, which in my view, is pretty innocuous which is it is why the red herring they chose to talk about in the media). No the real problems exist in things like classified programs that analyze all of a persons 'behavior' on social networks, breaking into cell phone networks to steal encryption keys, monitoring everyone's financial transactions almost all of which is clearly illegal both in American and elsewhere. Not to mention putting malware on computers. This also includes gaining 'intelligence data' on high value and ordinary people, activists and journalists in order to gain compromising data on them to blackmail, imprison or even kill them. This also includes getting medical data on people in order to find ways to monitor, track, target and kill them. More here.

So let's get real  - this is about far, far more than just a few phone records. That debate is the 'red herring' to keep Joe Six Pac the political mushroom he has made himself into. What is at stake has very little to do with terrorism. Because I can tell you right now that the Islamic State has received considerable support from the US government. Yes, the IS that has been chopping off heads in the Desert and enslaving thousands of people (more here) - got considerable support from the American government as well as US 'allies' in the Gulf, and according to a lot of clued in folks, continues to get that support. So forget about these fake arguments about wanting to 'stop terrorism'. That is just childish foolishness that they hope that Americans are ignorant enough to believe.

So if America is really behind so much of the terrorism we see today, has turned key AQ leaders (they have) and is assisting the Gulf Sheikdoms in their creation of an Islamic State under their control (they hope) then there is clearly another reason why the powers who work in secret (the elite and the national security state - Deep State) want all of these powers. Terrorism is the salesmanship word, the Madison Avenue advertising campaign to hide other purposes that are largely hidden both from the people and the vast majority of the low level men and women who work in that world. The real big picture is hidden even from them. Don't get me wrong, many can see but they are in no position to bite the hand that feeds them their considerable salaries and benefits. 'Treason makes me rich", so they continue on.

Let us go back a minute or two to the last time we had a very serious debate about these issues in the halls of power and by the man on the street. If you have never read this quote, please do, for in it we come to the very crux of the matter with regards to the Surveillance problem.

On August 17, 1975 Senator Frank Church stated on NBC's Meet the Press without mentioning the name of the NSA about this agency:

Read what he is saying most carefully because in that statement from the mid 1970's comes the real reason that we have all of this surveillance. This is not about Terrorism, this is about Population Control and the ability of the elite to control, destroy and undermine any legitimate protest to their polices. This means specifically and most importantly Peaceful Democratic opposition to their policies.This is the real crux of the matter that leaders must do all in their power to keep the people from understanding, for once they understand this, the total surveillance society will come to a rapid end. All of this stuff they are doing; go back and read your history brothers. I say again, READ YOUR HISTORY The only guy on the hill with the guts to spell this out, even for Black Americans is Rand Paul who briefly made it plain who was the victim of the surveillance state back in the 50's, 60's and 70's - it was the brothers.  We have seen and heard just about nothing but silence from Black elected officials who in my view have been in "the House" of Representatives too long, pulling down big salaries, excellent benefits and letting their communities go with Free Trade Agreements. The good news is that not all of them are going for it. The rest? Time will tell.

Now think for a moment. Imagine a world where you are told you can protest, but as soon as you do, you are picked up before you get to the protest area because the Surveillance State picked up your chats, social networking posts and your cell phone data and arrested you before you got to the protest plaza. Look, the FBI was looking into the Occupy Wall Streeters (OWS). Then they came in and tore down their camps. No they were not terrorists. But they had to be destroyed using the Total Surveillance state. Why? Their agenda was 180 degrees opposed to the elite's agenda. The young wanted good jobs and to hold Wall Street accountable. The elite wanted to ship the good jobs away with trade deals and steal some more money. The two visions of the future were incompatible. OWS had to go, hopefully peacefully but violently if necessary. Listen dear readers, they have this thing down to a science. Do you want to know why you voted for Change with Obama and never got it? One of the major reasons is the Total Surveillance State. So you want to know why Candidate Obama spoke forcefully against the Patriot Act and now President Obama now lobbies for it? The Surveillance State. They gather compromising data on people and blackmail them to submission. This is how Wall Street and the National Security Apparatus work. It is called the Deep State.

“The CIA is Wall Street. Wall Street is the CIA"
- Micheal Ruppert

Read that again and you better understand why OWS had to go and what kind of power was really behind their demise. There was no terrorism and everyone knew it. This was about the perpetuation of a system of elitism that democratic input will never be allowed to challenge. Anyone who tries winds up dead. Think Michale Ruppert, Gary Webb for starters. The list of those killed by the deep state include Senators, Congressmen, Presidents, Bankers (who talk), oil executives (who talk) Priests, and anyone that they view as a threat to their power and (this is key) criminal undertakings. This is the real American power structure, it runs on murder, theft, blackmail and repression and this is the real reason that the powers that be want to keep the surveillance state in place. They need intelligence in order to stifle legitimate dissent before it gets out of control. So they troll newsgroups and Social Networking sites. But again, this has less to do with terrorism that it does to do with stifling dissent in America.

There’s a shadow government running the country, and it’s not
up for re-election.
Mike Lofgren

Go back and read your history. Look how they did Black folks back during the Civil Rights movement. Look how the FBI and the CIA worked hand in hand to destroy Black leaders, including Dr, King. Look at how all of those Black activists were gunned down in cold blood by Police in the 60's and 70's.. We are not talking about legitimate Law Enforcement, but a criminal element that has insinuated itself into legitimate Law Enforcement that works hand in hand with the deep state to destroy anyone who they think should be killed and is a threat, not to America, but to their ongoing criminal undertakings.

Listen we have heard a considerable amount about the NSA's spying. It is very considerable and most significant. But what have not heard is about the CIA's activities and how they are doing many of the same things with even less legal cover than the NSA. Look - this I know - because I am...

1. A Christian
2. Am Black
3. Have a Blog With decent traffic

...a dossier has been made about me. Yes, they have a file. I have committed no crime, have no desire to commit a crime, live about as quietly and humbly as a person can live and yet, a file exists on me inside the National Security Establishment. My guess is that all Black Men who make over about $100k a year (which is certainly not me!!) or has any kind of a job with influence in corporate America or the Government has what we will call a 'nigger file' on them. I use that offensive word because the actions of those inside the beltway who are doing these kinds of things are just that offensive to me, a Black man and veteran.  If they are black and have ever been to a protest they too are almost certainly being watched. This is what they did back in the 70's not just to Dr. King but to all Blacks who were active in the movement for their Constitutional and Civil Rights.

Who would want to deny people their rights under the law? I will tell you -  a criminal and we had hundreds of them working in the FBI and local law enforcement, they wore a badge in the day time and a sheet at night. The good news is that we have come a long way since the 1970's, but the bad news is that with the Patriot Act, we took 10 steps backwards. Look I have had agents inside the National Security Establishment get my neighbors to report my comings and goings, that is how far this national security crapola has gone. So I know how this Patriot Act is being used and abused in an upfront and personal way. In my case it has become 'a ni--er reporting tool.' "Do you know where your ni--ers are today?" This seems to be the operative motto they are using. Look I know what I am talking about. I have seen how this system goes after people of color who work in it and absolves the White Man who does far worse. The pattern is clear. More here. Jail is for the Black Man, a cushy job is for the White one. It's a race based system of prosecutions. Once you put the Black man in jail, they know where he is. No file necessary. Are you poor and White? You will soon join the ranks of the ni--ers.

My point is a simple one. The Patriot Act has given the deep state carte blanche to repress any movement that threatened the deep state's (not the nation's) interest. Why are Black Neighborhoods targeted by racist cops who get away with cold blooded murder? This is how the deep state wants it. Why are America's largest Black cities in or heading into bankruptcy? This is how the deep state wants it. Why did they destroy OWS? The deep state wanted it. Why are they now targeting cash transactions? The deep state wants it. But here is where people have to learn the most important lesson that helps them to  better understand why this can and has continued.

The National Security Industry

There is a massive multi-billion dollar industry that has been built up around destroying American democracy and legitimate democratic input. This industry has one major ally. That being the abuse of the typical American's desire to be patriotic and protect his nation from its enemies. These feelings are good and should be shared by all of us in America. But those feelings and desires have been abused. Today, to question how these national security programs are being abused by criminals and racists is considered unpatriotic. But go back and read what Senator Church said. They are erecting a state that will one day turn on its democratic traditions and the people will have no recourse. They will arrest you before you get out of the front door if you try and protest. The Camera in your SmartTV will broadcast all you do in your house right to a DHS fusion center. This is the new form of Population Control and the US government, or more correctly the deep state that usually has demonstrated full control over that government has brought to America. It has a decidedly totalitarian streak to its thinking. But again, I only refer you to the fact that our intelligence community has long been in  bed with the key people who brought us the third Reich during and after the Second World War. We are not talking about one or two key scientists but THOUSANDS of Nazi officials SS officers and other sundry war criminals who were given a lot of love and jobs back in the US after the war while the stench of their victims rotting corpses were stinking up the death camps the criminals we protected and gave haven to, built and operated... happily. There is a much darker story here than the FBI put out in its recent white wash investigation, one that will turn the stomach of any decent American who honors her fallen WWII veterans.  I will not recount it here.

The key here is this - the Patriot Act and the vast majority of these surveillance programs need to be stopped, dead in their tracks. Second, a relook at each new program that the Intelligence community wants to bring on line that does or could conceivably effect the data of Americans needs to have as much public debate as possible. The idea that the kinds of treasons that has been going on behind closed doors (the real bad stuff has not been revealed and it was why some officials were indeed forced to resign)  should be classified and still is should no longer continue to be the way the community operates. Those who try to do it should be charged with Obstruction of Justice, even if they sit in the White House or the Senate Intelligence Committee. We need real accountability. If they can put Sterling in jail they can put a a Senator  there who hides illegal activities. Obstruction and leaking are both crimes. The problem is that the Justice Department is also part of the Deep State and there have been considerable criminal acts done by those inside the National Security Establishment.

The stakes are too great. The very foundations of the nation are threatened by a National Security State that has no reasonable controls and can get away with everything from murder of law abiding citizens, listening to and storing all of our phone calls (not just records). Building dossiers on law abiding Americans, and using the power of the Intelligence community and its major Intelligence Front Banks, Hedge Funds and financial institutions to bankrupt Black Cities for the purposes of Racial Cleansing, something I think they have been doing from Detroit, to Camden To Stockton to a host of other traditionally Black cities. Rather than use the KKK to clean out the Blacks, they use the power of finance. Starve the city of jobs, industry, lending and watch it implode. NAFTA was the opening spark, the TPP will be the mushroom cloud.

In all of this we need to thank, not demonize Snowden. The whole truth about him has not been told and I am not going to tell it here. Those who hate him, don't know and those who know ain't talking. What I can say is that before you spit hate at this guy and call him names (or anyone the media has trained you to hate), always remember this - you do not have all the facts. For 99% of you, you have about 25% of the facts. The other 75% would rock your world (yes it would). But one day, before too long, I think it may be safe to tell all about him. But that day is not today.

In closing, if our country really needs certain kinds of surveillance. Then that needs to be accomplished on a case-by-case basis, with the oversight of better courts than the current FISC system as well as some real sunlight on that surveillance once the cases are complete. Sunlight is the best political disinfectant. Do that and we can come up with some tools that will keep us safe from terrorists and protect our rights as well as protect our democratic processes at the same time. I am not against legitimate surveillance. I am against total surveillance. The kinds that now operates from your phone to your TV; post office to car location; music likes, to sexual preferences; religious affiliations or pet-peeves. The government does not need to know these things unless you have done something illegal. Can such a common sense, such an American approach be possible in 21st century America?

Time will tell.

But brothers, if you really want to know - I think this stuff will be used on Christians when the time is right. I think that in the eyes of certain players in the deep state who are members of the Church of Satan and other occult organizations and who work and are buried deeply inside the 'deep state', we, the body of Christ are the real target.

But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
(Mat 10:17-22)

Blessed Are The Eyes That See...

This is a repost of what I think is one of the more important spiritual pieces I have written. It deals with the Church, Blindness, false religion and our times. Only a few see... really see and I do mean a very, very few. The good news is that some eyes are slowly opening up. The bad news is that most people are too evil and arrogant to see. I had a very interesting short exchange with one of my readers this AM and here is what he said.

You know, I was thinking this morning on the way to work about how many people I have crossed paths with over the years who say that they want to know "the truth", but when you tell them anything out of their comfort zones they get incredulous - if not mad - at you.

I have come to believe that the "eyes to see and ears to hear" are a grace gift from God - like faith.  The people who don't 'get it" CAN'T get it, anymore than I can run a four minute mile.  It seems that more are being blessed with eyes being opened.   But to the great majority, "God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie". - Name Withheld

The above linked pdf talks about this in three brief posts from a few years ago. For many of you, you have read it, for many others, you have not. Take a moment and do. There are a lot of things happening in our world that you are not hearing about, not on your Christian sites, not on your mainline news sites, not on your conspiracy sites (which are often US Intelligence fronts). But on order to see, you have to alter your psychology, view point and put your emotions as well as your political programming aside for a while and just use your brain. Most people cannot do that. It takes a level of intelligence and emotional maturity that most Americans do not posses. But if you can do that and want to see, soon your eyes will be blessed and you too will see, understand and know. Then (and only then) will you have a fighting chance of surviving what is coming to our world in short order.

A Short Word

While in prayer recently, the Lord laid on me four things that I was to walk in. I feel led to share them with each of you as I think they will help many of you in your own particular situations.

1. One day at a time. Take you life one day at a time. Cease to worry too much about next month, year or decade, live as much as practically in the present, do what good you can while you still can.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
(Mat 6:34)

2. Keep Thy Foot From Evil. - This needs no commentary. Let no hate, cruelty, wickedness, lust or other sundry sins enter into your life. DO NOT DO EVIL and do not congregate in the halls of the wicked.
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
(Pro 4:26-27)

3. Have Faith In God! Know that God knows all and always rewards those who truly and humbly trust in him.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
(Mar 11:22)

4. God is with you. God wanted me to know that as long as I do the work he has called me to do, he will be with me.

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
(Jos 1:5-9)

Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
(Amo 5:14-15)

That was it! I wish I could tell you it was some new prophetic word about our future, but it was just these simple and direct exhortations that I share with all of you, because I think they were meant for me and for EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU as well, who knows, loves and honestly wants to serve the Lord God and his son Jesus Christ.

African Bishop Blasts Clinton In Remarks About Religion, Support For Abortion

The Bishop makes plain that in return for US aid, the US wants to force population reduction methods on Africans ('access to reproductive health' is the propaganda phrase).  This falls right in line with the agenda of Margret Sanger, a person Hillary Clinton said she admires - Sanger called Blacks (like Africans) 'Human Weeds' and used her organization, Planned Parenthood as a kind of human 'weed wacker' and still does.

"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race." - Margeret Sanger

"To  apply  a  stern  and  rigid  policy  of  sterilization  and  segregation  to  that  grade  of  population  whose  progeny  is  already  tainted. . .  to  apportion  farm  lands  and  homesteads  for  these  segregated  persons  where  they  would  be  taught  to   work   under   competent   instructors   for   the   period   of   their   entire   lives. . ." - Margeret Sanger

A Little History.

Black Americans need to get it in their minds that what they face goes  far, far beyond a few racist cops. Some of my Black brothers say, 'we know that'. To which I respond, then why have you consistently supported a political party that has funded, backed and otherwise facilitated the extermination of much of our race? I say, clearly you DO NOT 'get it', though yes, you probably honestly think you do.

Planned Parenthood and Hitler? Eugenics and the Nazi's? There is a connection. But Black America can't process the connection into a coherent response to it - so it continues along with disproportionate incarceration rates, higher unemployment rates and a youth that is simmering -  for they see how their leaders have sold them out even if more affluent Blacks don't see it - the young do; especially those in places that are particularly economically depressed. The have not's see it; the have's don't want to see - they don't want to let a few hard facts get in the way of a good delusion.

Yet, you try and tell more affluent ones that Free Trade is stealing jobs from us, and they defend the Presidents push for the TPP. Look at Detroit. It used to be a big bustling city, with good wage jobs for workers. That is, until the free trade agreement called NAFTA - then those jobs that had not already left the nation went to Mexico, though I will tell you that Corporations have spent a kings ransom to hide this and other facts and have used their corporate funded and free-trade benefiting think tanks to lie to Americans as to the devastation Free Trade has had on the working man, particularly the Black working man.

I have written little on the recent riots for a reason. I plan on (God willing) looking at a range of Black issues in a Strategic and Spiritual context before long. This will not be the usual left right political clap-trap, but the real life-and-death, eat or not eat issues; live or be exterminated with biological weapons types issues (like Ebola in West Africa)  that are facing a growing number of Blacks both in America and Africa. We are going to talk about Black mortality in ways your sold out Black leaders will never talk about it and I am not just talking about abortion.

For my non-Black readers this will be very instructive too. Why? Because what they do to the Blacks, they will work their way onto you. So if my Black brothers stay in an intellectual funk and refuse to pull their heads out and don't survive, at least you will have the wherewithal to see their mistakes and not repeat them. Because I am more about opening the eyes and helping God's people of ALL races, not just my Black brethren.

I am not optimistic about what will happen to Black America. I cannot lie to you. I think some will make it, most won't. There is too much socially reinforced ignorance and too many mis-informed rationalizations going on for me to be optimistic. But I am enough of a realist to know this - when things get so hot and so un-deniable that folks begin to really see where certain parts of the elite want to take Black America, there may indeed be an awakening; violent and rude. But I think they have a plan for that one - though Black folks will never connect up the new laws signed by America's first Black President and the King Alfred Plan. They think the President is on their side and he gives wonderful speeches 'convincing' them into that naive belief. He is doing the job the almost exclusively White, elite money paid him to do - seduce the people and help them steal whatever has not been stolen and if you think this is a theoretical theft - live a little longer. You will see just what I mean by 'stolen'. Right now Americans put all this debt in the theoretical category - that will soon change. Keep in mind that the US now is stuck at the debt limit and those of you who read my last pdf update (Political Spiritual and Economic Update last week) understand a little background here. We will run out of money late Summer.

This is not the end of the world, but some big things are happening behind the scenes. Right now, to the elite, Black America is a very inconvenient nuisance, to the their plans. Black folks don't get this. They are mad, but don't understand the whole strategic 'battlefield' they are on right now and fail to grasp what this all is really gong to mean to them. Frankly, most just don't want to hear it.

What I will write later this summer I hope will provide some background and context. Black Christians need to wake up and stay out of these Churches that are not preaching the whole counsel of God, lest you be rejected by the Lord on the day of his visitation.  Don't let a Black crook with a million dollar smile rob you of your money, power and soul or a Black political leader whose message is increasingly muddled misdirect you into the arms of your foes, because  brothers that is what they are being paid to do.

Finally, violence must be rejected. I do, have and will. Yet what is so sad that nothing had really been done about these cop shootings until things got so out of hand in Baltimore that the Governor of Maryland had to call out the national guard to quell riots.

It's a shame that our leaders won't listen to anything but 'act up' and riots, but sadly that appears to be the only thing our national leadership understands. My advice is this to our President - listen to Black America and young America of all races  - they are not doing well. Don't just sit down and have cocktails with the rich elite of Black America, but the people in the inner city. Listen with an open mind and not just for a photo op.  Black America has supported you for a long time when you have done so little for them in return. Take a good hard look at what is happening with the youth, jobs, lack of opportunity and do something EFFECTIVE - not just the usual political fix to it - with a speech, a promise and the hope everyone forgets you made them.  Because the root of what is happening in Black America that comes within your (Presidential) purview boils down to economics. Look at all the Black cities that are bankrupt or heading that way. Why? No jobs. When there are no jobs there is no tax base, no tax base no revenue, no revenue, bankruptcy.  That is why and things are getting worse, not better.

Brothers,  I deeply want to see racism and hate disappear. I have been Black for over half a century and I am tired of hate and racism, no matter who practices it, Black or White. I  speak honestly and forthrightly about it because no problem can be fixed until it has been clearly and honestly identified.

USCIRF Issues Annual Report On Persecution
Nigeria: Religious freedom conditions in Nigeria are being
strained by Boko Haram’s terrorist attacks against Chris-
tians and Muslims, recurring sectarian violence, and
escalating interfaith tensions. While the Nigerian federal
government does not engage in religious persecution, it
fails to implement effective strategies to prevent or stop
terrorism or sectarian violence and does not bring to
justice those responsible for such violence. The Nigerian
government’s almost exclusively military approach to
Boko Haram contributes to ongoing terrorism in the
country. Boko Haram exploits sectarian fissures to
manipulate religious tensions and destabilize Nigeria.

North Korea: North Korea remains one of the most oppressive
regimes in the world and among the worst violators
of human rights. The government tightly controls all
political and religious expression and activities, and
it punishes those who question the regime. Genuine
freedom of religion or belief is non-existent. Individuals
secretly engaging in religious activities are subject to
arrest, torture, imprisonment, and sometimes execu-
tion. North Koreans suspected of contacts with South
Koreans or with foreign missionaries, particularly in
China, or caught possessing Bibles, reportedly have
been executed. Thousands of religious believers and
their families are imprisoned in labor camps, includ-
ing those forcibly repatriated from China.

Eritrea: Systematic, ongoing, and egregious religious free-
dom violations continue in Eritrea. Violations include
torture or other ill-treatment of religious prisoners,
arbitrary arrests and detentions without charges, a
prolonged ban on public religious activities, and inter-
ference in the internal affairs of registered religious
groups. The religious freedom situation is particularly
grave for Evangelical and Pentecostal Christians and
Jehovah’s Witnesses. The government dominates the
internal affairs of the Orthodox Church of Eritrea, the
country’s largest Christian denomination, and sup-
presses Muslim religious activities and those opposed
to the government-appointed head of the Muslim
community. In light of these violations, USCIRF again
recommends in 2015 that Eritrea be designated as a
“country of particular concern,” or CPC, under the
International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA).

China: In 2014, the Chinese government took steps to consol-
idate further its authoritarian monopoly of power over
all aspects of its citizens’ lives. For religious freedom,
this has meant unprecedented violations against Uighur
Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists, Catholics, Protestants,
and Falun Gong practitioners. People of faith continue
to face arrests, fines, denials of justice, lengthy prison
sentences, and in some cases, the closing or bulldozing
of places of worship. Based on the alarming increase
in systematic, egregious, and ongoing abuses, USCIRF
again recommends China be designated a “country of
particular concern,” or CPC, under the International
Religious Freedom Act (IRFA). The State Department has
designated China as a CPC since 1999, most recently in July, 2014

The Chinese Constitution states that it guarantees
freedom of religion. However, only so-called “nor-
mal religions” – those belonging to one of the five
state-sanctioned “patriotic religious associations”
associated with the five officially-recognized religions
(Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism, and Protes-
tantism) – can register with the government and legally
hold worship services and conduct religious activities.
The government and Chinese Communist Party are
officially atheist, with more than 700 million persons
unaffiliated with any religion or belief. However, religious
followers are strong and reportedly on the rise:
more than 294 million practice folk religions, more
than 240 million Buddhism, 68 million Christianity,
and nearly 25 million Islam. The Chinese government
monitors strictly religious activities, including by those
recognized by the state, but unregistered groups and
their members are especially vulnerable. For example,
although Christianity is state-sanctioned, the govern-
ment continues to engage in severe violations of reli-
gious freedom against both registered and unregistered
Catholics and Protestants. Some have characterized
the new wave of persecution against Christians that
swept through China in 2014 as the most egregious and
persistent since the Cultural Revolution. Nevertheless,
the number of religious followers, of Christianity in par-
ticular, is considered to be growing.

In America, Where It's A Crime To Be Poor...

The Poor Get Prison

Poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. A broken taillight, an unpaid parking ticket, a minor drug offense, sitting on a sidewalk, or sleeping in a park can all result in jail time. In this report, we seek to understand the multi-faceted, growing phenomenon of the “criminalization of poverty.”

In many ways, this phenomenon is not new: The introduction of public assistance programs gave rise to prejudices against beneficiaries and to systemic efforts to obstruct access to the assistance.

This form of criminalizing poverty — racial profiling or the targeting of poor black and Latina single mothers trying to access public assistance — is a relatively familiar reality. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase this criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans. These troubling trends are eliminating their chances to get out of poverty and access resources that make a safe and decent life possible.

In this report we will summarize these realities, filling out the true breadth and depth of this national crisis. The key elements we examine are:

  • the targeting of poor people with fines and fees for misdemeanors, and the resurgence of debtors’ prisons – the imprisonment of people unable to pay debts resulting from the increase in fines and fees;
  • mass incarceration of poor ethnic minorities for non-violent offenses, and the barriers to employment and re-entry into society once they have served their sentences;
  • excessive punishment of poor children that creates a “school-to-prison pipeline”;
  • increase in arrests of homeless people and people feeding the homeless, and criminalizing life-sustaining activities such as sleeping in public when no shelter is available; and
  • confiscating what little resources and property poor people might have through “civil asset forfeiture.” - IPS

Oh brothers, hear me on this - We as Christians must look out for the poor man. I know you all read my commentary on Amos. One of they key crimes and sins of Israel in those days was her lack of care and concern for their poor brethren. The people were comfortable, living good and never thought that God was really going to lower the boom on their decadent and selfish lifestyle. They were wrong and we know what happened to Israel back in those days. Those that survived in those days, probably wished they hadn't, things were just that bad. Brothers, when God wants to bring pain and suffering, he knows how to do it. The Old Testament is full demonstrations of his ability to do it. That is why I say to each of you, stay on the good side of the Lord, don't get on his bad side. God loves those who show mercy to the poor, the orphan and the widow. He turns on those who show contempt to them. 

There are many charities out there that cater to the homeless. Many do a great job. Here is one of my readers passed on to me yesterday - she gives to them.

Feed My Starving Children

I give locally (to a local Christian Mission) but another Charity you may find of interest is Covenant House. Brothers, there is a lot you can do with a checkbook, an envelope and a stamp.

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD;
and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
(Pro 19:17)

US Training Nazis, Western Media Providing Cover

At issue is not whether everyone in Ukraine is a Nazi, as that is an absurd argument that no one is really making. Rather, the question has to do with precisely which individuals and factions that are unmistakably fascist are being supported, directly or indirectly, by the US and its allies. More to the point, which of the US-backed Nazi elements are integral to the continued illegal war against the East, and which figure prominently in the future trajectory of the Ukrainian state.

But leaving aside such pesky questions as to hypocrisy and accountability, there is still an even more salient point. The language employed in the Associated Press article essentially whitewashes the true nature of the Azov Battalion: who they are and what they stand for. AP refers to criticism of the Azov Battalion for its “far-right sentiments including brandishing an emblem widely used in Nazi Germany.” Unpack that deliberately, deceptively circumspect language, and it becomes clear that there is a fear, if not outright refusal, to call Azov Battalion what they are: Nazis.

It is not “far right sentiments” that Azov holds. Far right sentiments might be American libertarian supporters of Ron Paul, or even supporters of Marine Le Pen in France. Azov Battalion instead has fascist sentiments that include advocating for ethnic cleansing to “purify” Ukraine. They talk of “one nation for one people” and other such Nazi slogans.

This conception of the nation as rotten and impure because of perceived “degenerate” elements is a hallmark of all fascist organizations, from the Ku Klux Klan in the US to Hitler’s Nazi Party. These are most certainly not, as the AP referred to them, “far right sentiments.” Such views are not even “nationalistic” in the broadest sense of the word. They are deeply racist and fundamentally rooted in bigotry.

I can't help you

There comes a time when you just have to throw up your hands and say, " I can't help you." What I mean is this. I get a lot of questions not so much here on the site but from others. The truth is, trying to answer some of the questions people have is very complicated and one just has to do somethings that most people are not willing to do in order to do get some real understanding.

You see, I am a man with no illusions. I mean that NO ILLUSIONS. I cannot cater to those who hold them. I never went into politics because I lack the capacity for self deception that is needed to lead others based on political ideology. I also lack the capacity to deceive others along the same lines. To understand our world today, it takes an inner intellectual (not spiritual) hardness - a cold, razor sharp eye that is not big on fluff, spectacle, mendacity, front, show and misdirection. If you are the kind of person who has that razor sharp no-nonsense attitude or wants to be like that, this site will be of tremendous help to you.  This is why I don't subscribe or belong to any political party. This is why I don't like modern denominationalism, I am not big on transitory social movements, trends and fads either. Like I said, I reject illusion and a serious person who wants to cut away the baloney in today's world must take this brutally intellectually honest stance.

Having illusions only leads to delusions and delusions to deceit. I lack the capacity for self-deceit. Some call this suspicion or negativity or a glass half-empty mentality. I don't. I guess the way I see it is like this - give me the negative stuff up front. Don't tell me that what used to be a glass of water that is now shards of glass floating in a puddle of water is a 'glass half full'. Tell that to the delusional, but not me. Let me digest the hard truths and let me deal with it  - that way, I am sometimes pleasantly surprised when things are not as bad as they seem but I will never be bitterly disappointed. In politics it is always best to have no illusions. Not about a candidate, party, platform, issue groups - nothing.  Do you want to cut through the issues and figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth? If you really want to, one of the best ways is to follow the money. But I have found that if a person follows the spirituality of a person or a group, this too is an even better indicator of where a person or group will lead you. If you follow the money you can quickly discover where a party or person will go. You can tell if they are lying to you. Do you see a guy who is campaigning on cutting defense spending taking tens of millions from defense conglomerates? He is lying to you. Now he will find a politically palatable way to make you think he tried to keep his word, but the truth is, if he's taking their money, he is going to raise, not lower those budgets. Both parties know how to play the political game and know how to protect each other to keep key donors happy – brothers, they do it all the time.

More and more what you see in the news with the two party system is akin to shadow boxing. It's all fake and scripted. But at times following the money - this is not an easy task with the very sophisticated (and semi and quasi legal ways they do it) ways money is laundered these days. I had heard from insiders that back in 2007-8 that Obama was getting a lot of money from Iran and Iranian front groups. Only now do I see how that money paid off. Don't get me wrong, I think the deal with Iran is overall good  - at least what little we know about it. But nothing happens in politics without a check being written in America. Why did Obama support gay marriage? Someone wrote him a check. Why are terrorist groups getting arms from the US? Take a guess. Why are abortion clinics getting money from the Feds? Again, this is simple math. Why are there Nazi's in Ukraine? Because someone wrote Obama a check (yes they did). Why are Black men still being shot down in cold blood? Because no one is writing any checks to stop it. This is the cold hard reality that most of my countrymen still don't understand. Why has the war on terror been fought? Because someone (big defense contractors and security firms) saw billions in contracts and wanted to see those contracts grow. They paid our leaders to perpetuate it. Why has surveillance grown to what it is today? Because those big contractors are making billions from it, they know who to pay to keep the system in tact.

Do you want to know where defense budgets will go? See who is donating to whom and how much. Find out what systems need funding and a congressional go-ahead.

Our Intelligence agencies, our Media organizations, our big advertising and 'spin' making firms are all in the business of forming YOUR opinion. They make and are paid enormous amounts of money to massage, create and change your opinion on matters that could make or cost those with power and money a great deal of it. Those men would not be paying top dollar for those services if they did not work. They pay them because they do. You will never know which 'scientific study' is fake or done in a way to come to a pre-arranged conclusion that will make someone money. Think of Climategate a few years ago. There is money and serious power behind the Global Warming scam. Note, I did not say the climate was not changing, it is. I said that the Global warming 'evidence' is non-existent. There are many forms of climate change. The real kinds are not gong to be solved – namely pollution and the destruction of our oceans; those crisis are being downplayed in the media by those who are causing the problems. But a lot of scientific organizations, who are dependent on elite money push this farce (Global Warming) because if they don't, their funding gets cut. Dear readers, this is the way the game is played. This is why I have said to you in the past that if you read something in your mainstream news papers and sites, it is because for the most part, someone with deep pockets paid for you to read it. They want to change your opinion, support a false narrative, keep you buying this or stop buying that, support this policy and against that one.

This is why I tell so many folks who ask me questions that 'I can't help you'. It isn't that I don't want to, it is that I simply cannot do it until you jettison your illusions and delusions. Fall out of love with our political leaders. Stop looking at them with starry eyes and look at them with a critical one. Ask the tough questions and don't just accept talk and promises as a response to a problem. You want a solution? Demand one rather than a heart rousing speech, written by someone who you don't even know who is skilled in the art of psycho/political-lingusitics, dutifully read by the politician you are so in love with who will forget it five minutes after he spoke.

No brothers, the times of deception are already here. Most people don't believe they can be deceived and they are like a slave who does not see the shackles on his feet and the rope around his waist about to carry him off to God knows where. One of the very first things you must do to avoid delusion and deception is to have no illusions. Reject them all. ALL. Once you do that, you will be in a far better position to see, discern and understand the world we live in and not fall into the traps laid by the devil and his imps. You will never understand our world or escape the coming deception until you reject illusions (lies falsehoods, fanciful thinking, misplaced optimism, etc) and stand up like a man and take the truth like a full grown man (or woman). Leave illusions for children, they can afford them up until they get up to about 10. You can't, not as a Christian living in these times.

May God grant all of you grace and peace and discernment in these difficult and deceptive times and remember the last days deception encompasses the whole world. Just about everyone gets snared in it, it is so thorough and enticing. Those that don't get fooled get killed.

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Rev 13:11-18, KJV)

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev 12:9, KJV)

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. (Rev 18:23, KJV)

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Rev 19:20, KJV)

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (2Tim 3:13, KJV)

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (2Thess 2:3, KJV)

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; (Eph 4:14, KJV)

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1Cor 6:9-10, KJV)

Amos: Chapter 9

(Note: Over the past year I have been going through the minor prophets. As soon as it is finished, my Commentary on Zechariah will go up here in the Chinese language. Here is the final installment of Amos I finished last month. I am considering writing on Joel or Micah next. - MSW)

I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered. Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down: And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them: And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good. And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. (Amos 9:1-5, KJV)

Amos here saw a vision of the Lord. The Lord (Adonai -H136) was standing on the altar and this was certainly in the Temple. The Lord's words start with a command. The fact that the Lord stands upon the altar has led commentators to say that this is clearly a judgment vision. These commentators take note he is not on the mercy seat but stands upon the Judgment seat. Here, he is not showing mercy, he is here to execute a horrible judgment on the people. Some commentators think that the altar referred to was the idolatrous one in Bethel. I also do not think this is the case. The Lord's temple was in Jerusalem and as long as God saw fit to interact with his people and send them prophets, we have to assume that he as speaking to all of Israel and from His temple. The Jewish Taqrgum (and ancient Jewish Commentary) has this to say about it.

"said Amos the prophet, I saw the glory of the Lord removing from the cherub, and it dwelt upon the altar;''

I believe that the vision here is one of God standing (rather than sitting) on the Judgment seat is worthy of note. These distinctions may seem unimportant, but the whole sense of the passage is altered when one understands the role that God must play if he is just. I think we should note that there is no reference for asking for repentance or of God's forgiveness here; nothing along those lines is noted in this passage. Once the Lord speaks it is by way of commandments (probably to the Angels) directing the destruction upon his people. Here is what Matthew Henry's says.

With what solemnity the sentence is passed. The prophet saw in vision the Lord standing upon the altar (v. 1), the altar of burnt-offerings; for the Lord has a sacrifice, and multitudes must fall as victims to his justice. He is removed from the mercy-seat between the cherubim, and stands upon the altar, the judgment-seat, on which the fire of God used to fall, to devour the sacrifices. He stands upon the altar, to show that the ground of his controversy with this people was their profanation of his holy things; here he stands to avenge the quarrel of his altar, as also to signify that the sin of the house of Israel, like that of the house of Eli, shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering forever, - MHWBC

The effect of God's words is this – he is angry, he is going to execute judgment on the the people and no one shall escape it. They may think they can find a place to hid from it, but it will be in vain. There will be no hiding place in the ocean, not in outer space, not even in hell. God's anger was very, very great. This judgment is extensive and most troubling. The word for Hell is the Hebrew word -

H7585 שׁאל שׁאול she'ôl she'ôl sheh-ole', sheh-ole' From H7592; hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranian retreat), including its accessories and inmates: - grave, hell, pit.

The sense here is that even in death there was no escape from God's judgment. Brothers, let us pause and consider this most carefully. When God's mercy has been exhausted and his patience has run its course, only a fearsome prospect of Judgment awaits people. This is the sense that the writer of Hebrews lays out to those Hebrew Christians who were, as most expositors make clear, considering apostatizing their faith.

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
(Heb 10:26-33)

The sense here was that going back into the old sins was not an option that would bring spiritual peace and comfort but rather judgment. The writer here (probably Paul) wants to make sure they understood the stakes and wanted to compare what happened to those who forsook the law of Moses (like in the days of Amos) and those who were about to forsake the law of the Messiah. The author was letting them know that what they did back in the olden days was bad enough, what you are bout to do is much, much worse.

This is why I know this ministry exists. I am not here to tickle ears. People just don't want to hear hard truths. You cannot tell folks truths they do not want to hear. When I talk about the evils Obama is dealing in, Black Americans don't want to hear it. They would rather support the 'black' evil than rebuke it.

When I talk about some of the foreign policy endeavors our nation has been involved in and the deaths, murders, thefts and other sundry evils we are constantly engaged in, folks don't want to hear that either. When evil touches a nation or a people and requires a collective and personal change in behavior, they almost never want to hear it. You tell them and they go blind and deaf. Why? Because deep down inside, many love their evil and the fruits of it. They have no intention of repenting of it. They all seem to contract a terminal case of selective blindness as they run headlong into the fires of God's horrendous, inescapable judgment.

Again, note that no one escapes in these passages in Amos. Even those who are carried off as slaves will still see the sword. “...and though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them.” They thought they got off light by being enslaved. They were wrong. The Lord had commanded the sword to overtake them even in their captivity. Brothers, the Lord was angry and mercy had fled. There would be no mercy shown to these reprobates who had done all this evil. God had determined to bring evil upon the people. “...and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.

Brothers, It is my fervent prayer that God does not do this to the modern Church and the western world or America in particular, who has for the most part utterly forsaken God and even taken to mocking him in their entertainment and the political realm. The modern Church for the most part, has made up its own Jesus created out of their own Western imagination. One that gives succor to American crimes and evils. The Christ of the Bible they have by and large, forsaken especially when the message of Christ is not adequately 'politically correct'. These first five verses in Amos, Chapter nine makes plain that God is on the throne and he is not playing any games and his judgment is all reaching, all encompassing and is certain to those who refuse to repent and do right.

 It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name. Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
(Amo 9:6-7)

Here the Lord makes plain that he is the creator of both the heavens and the earth and he gives his name

yehôvâh yeh-ho-vaw'
From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

This time the word Adonai is not used (as in verse 1) but rather, the proper name that was given to Moses, this is the one God uses here. He is the ultimate God the Lord of all things. Then the Lord chides Israel for behaving like the heathen nations around them rather than as the people of God. God is telling Israel they are just like the Ethiopians who knew not God and they behaved just like them. I think the JFB commentary lays out this verse quite well.

however great ye seem to yourselves. Do not rely on past privileges, and on My having delivered you from Egypt, as if therefore I never would remove you from Canaan. I make no more account of you than of "the Ethiopian" (compare Jer_13:23). "Have not I (who) brought you out of Egypt," done as much for other peoples? For instance, did I not bring "the Philistines (see on Isa_14:29, &c.) from Caphtor (compare Deu_2:23; see on Jer_47:4), where they had been bond-servants, and the Syrians from Kir?" It is appropriate, that as the Syrians migrated into Syria from Kir (compare Note, see on Isa_22:6), so they should be carried back captive into the same land (see on Amo_1:15; 2Ki_16:9), just as elsewhere Israel is threatened with a return to Egypt whence they had been delivered. The "Ethiopians," Hebrew, "Cushites," were originally akin to the race that founded Babylon: the cuneiform inscriptions in this confirming independently the Scripture statement (Gen_10:6, Gen_10:8, Gen_10:10). - JFB Commentary

 If I had to summarize what the Lord is saying her it is this. “You are special to me as long as you behave like you are special. But you are behaving like the heathen and will be treated as such!”

Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth. All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us. (Amo 9:8-10)

Here the Lord is making plain his purpose, to punish the sinful kingdom. He is going to destroy it from off the face of the earth. But he was not going to make a full end of Jacob. The Lord had not forgotten his covenant and was going to keep it and for the sake of his own word and promises, he was not going to make a full end. But those engaged in unrepentant sin and who mocked his prophets and told themselves that evil would not overtake them as the Prophets warned were in for a special 'treat'. God was going to sift Israel and separate the wheat from the chaff, the good fruit from the evil fruit, that which was salvageable and that which was not.

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God. (Amo 9:11-15)

 The Lord then makes some abundant promises to those that were to be saved from all of this judgment. God was going to raise up the tabernacle of David (the Davidic Bloodline/Messiah). Verse 12 appears to be a prophecy of the Church age, where Gentiles 'who are called by my name'. They too would share in this blessing. Here is what Barnes says about this passage.

Israel then, or the Jewish Church, was to inherit, or take into itself, not Edom only, but all nations, and that, by their belonging to God. Edom, as the brother of Israel and yet his implacable enemy, stands as a symbol of all who were alien from God, over against His people. He says, the “residue of Edom,” because he had foretold the destruction which was first to come upon Edom; and Holy Scripture everywhere speaks of those who should be converted, as a “remnant” only. The Jews themselves are the keepers and witnesses of these words. Was it not foretold? It stands written. Is it not fulfilled? The whole world from this country to China, and from China round again to us, as far as it is Christian, and as, year by year, more are gathered into the fold of Christ, are the inheritance of those who were the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. James quoted these words in the Council of Jerusalem, to show how the words of the prophet were in harmony with what Peter had related, how “God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for His Name” Act_15:14. He quotes the words as they stood in the version which was understood by the Gentiles who came from Antioch. - Albert Barnes

The passage goes on to describe a time of great plenty and blessing upon those who serve the Lord and that God will again bring the captivity of his people right back home again.

When they came back, they would not be removed again. I do not think this prophecy has been fulfilled yet. Clearly this is to be fulfilled at the end of this age. Will the Jews be moved out of Israel again just before Messiah returns? Some think so, I think not. I think many will be moved out in a terrible war, perhaps some to a place of refuge. I think Israel itself will be on the verge of destruction, but I think at the last moment when they call finally call upon the Messiah, he will return and save Israel in the Great battle of the end of this age.


Amos is a very important prophet. His words, admonitions and warnings echo down the centuries. The sins he cries about in Israel are found in today's Israel and in today's America. Idolatry, cruelty to the poor, sacrilege and mocking God's prophets. A true prophet is God's ambassador – his job is to make sure you understand what God is going to do if you don't change your behavior. This is basically the same job an ambassador has in our world. Before two nations go to war, the ambassador goes in and warns the other nation, 'stop what you are doing or we will fight'. When you harm an ambassador, you commit a serious crime. Amos was truly God's ambassador to a very wayward people. Amos' life as a Shepherd prepared him, for his job as a shepherd was a simple one. But Amos was fearless. It was both of these traits that set him apart as a prophet of the most high.

Amos must have looked much like one of these Arab shepherds. He, too, was brown and sturdy. He, too, was clad in sheepskin when he led his flocks to pasture. It was, perhaps, when he was enjoying the grandeur of the prospect from one of his native hills, or soothing his soul with such music as he could make, that the Spirit made him conscious of a higher destiny and forced him to leave his sheep to be a prophet of Jehovah. This call did not find Amos unprepared, for his previous life, beside cultivating the strength and vigor of his physique, had developed certain internal qualities that fitted him for his new vocation. What these were may be gathered from even a superficial perusal of his book. A more thoroug study of it impresses them up in the imagination until they become a distinct as he features of a well-remembered face. - Amos: A  Study In Exegesis (HG Mitchell)

I think the key here is that like Christ, Amos was not what folks were expecting. Look how Nathaniel looked at the place Christ came from.

And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. (Joh 1:46)

But did not Paul say the same basic thing.

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. (1Co 1:27-29)

This is how I look at Amos and many of the prophets. They were lowly men whom God called. They did not want glory, they did not want social position (most hated it). What they wanted to do was to fulfill the task that God had given them. Some like Johah did not want to do the tough job of being a prophet. So brothers, let us all remember the admonitions of Amos. To remember the poor, to not love sloth and to run from sin and evil like you would with an aids infected blood transfusion!  To not love worldly pleasures but to be busy about our God given tasks. Let not idleness spoil the gifts within each and every one of you. Despise and yes, even hate idolatry, wherever it is found; in your Churches, homes, own lives, in our nation and especially in our financial markets which more and more resemble a Bethel-like temple of crime and greed. Let it not get to the point where the Lord has to send in his prophet and say...

“For three transgressions of America and for four, I will not turn away the punishment there of...” (see Amos 1:3ff)

End of Amos Commentary


Note: I am often chided by some for not writing on Black issues. I do, often but not from the perspective of lost man and those who have rejected God and tossed their history books into the trash. Black America's problems are myriad and need to be looked at from both a Divine and historical perspective, not with the touchy-feely political correctness that permeates Black consciousness today: both literary and electronic Media. Too often a moral cowardice is all too evident in the writings of these people. They don't want look at many of the real issues - they want to be liked and popular - not fix problems. This is why my work here is so often reviled by other Black writers. They don't care about what really happens to our people as long as they get that royalty check and keep their TV show on the air. Black culture is full of these false leaders and false prophets. Peddling solutions that will only make matters worse.

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
(Luk 6:26)

I fully expect to be hated, but I have a job to do and I am going to do it. I hate posting messages like this, but if I don't - God will hold ME accountable for remaining silent. I have  been on the wrong side of God before and have no intention of going here again. I will be obedient.

It's Offical: US To Train Nazi Brigades In Ukraine

If there is a swastika in your future, a Black President put it there. Black Americans whom these Nazi's want to exterminate? They give the President SKY HIGH Approval ratings and he's training these nut jobs! Blessed be the day I got out of the US military!!

I just don't think most Americans really understand what has happened to the US military. More here. And here. And here.

...or what kind of man sits in the White House.

More here.

Starvation As A Tool In Georgia Prisons
It is amazing to me the parallels we see today if you know what to look for. The parallels are there if you really want to see them for what they are, are a repeat of a history that many today are trying very hard even today to re-write and hide their own wicked Nazi-loving acts. Internet searches more and more try and make Jews into Nazi's and praise those who massacre them. But here in America more and more it is the Black man that is the new Jew. He can drive down the road, get pulled over and get shot in cold blood and the cops go free. These are the kinds of things that happened to Jews in Germany. They too were persecuted by those in authority and the system never went after, but rather rewarded and promoted the persecutors. The history of Kristallnact is instructive.

Kristallnacht changed the nature of persecution from economic, political, and social to physical with beatings, incarceration, and murder; the event is often referred to as the beginning of the Holocaust. In the words of historian Max Rein in 1988, "Kristallnacht came...and everything was changed."[62]

While November 1938 predated overt articulation of "the Final Solution", it foreshadowed the genocide to come. Around the time of Kristallnacht, the SS newspaper Das Schwarze Korps called for a "destruction by swords and flames." At a conference on the day after the pogrom, Hermann Göring said: "The Jewish problem will reach its solution if, in any time soon, we will be drawn into war beyond our border—then it is obvious that we will have to manage a final account with the Jews."[11]

Specifically, the Nazis managed to achieve in Kristallnacht all the theoretical targets they set for themselves: confiscation of Jewish belongings to provide finances for the military buildup to war, separation and isolation of the Jews, and most importantly, the move from the antisemitic policy of discrimination to one of physical damage, which began that night and continued until the end of World War II. The event showed the public attitude was not solidly behind the perpetrators. Many Germans at the time found the pogroms troubling, because they equated them with the days of the SA street rule and lawlessness. The British Embassy in Berlin and British Consular offices throughout Germany received many protests and expressions of disquiet from members of the German public about the anti-Jewish actions of the time. - Wikipedia
Dear readers it was commonpalce to see Jews beaten on the streets scrubbing sidewalks in Nazi Germany. My point is not to say that things are nearly as bad for Black folks as it was during the Holocaust for Jews. My point is different. The same methodologies are slowly being used on Black folks and they don't understand what or who the real enemy is. Sure racism that is the knee jerk emotional 'fallback' word used all too often,  but that is a vast oversimplification of a much more far reaching and economically driven problem. Black America does not understand (nor is she inclined to as long as the President is Black) just what she is really up against and what it will mean in a world that is already, in the view of our elite, critically overpopulated. In the view of these men, Abortion has helped reduce the population of the racially undesirable (Blacks), but more direct methods are going to be employed one day. Yet Black folks still are in a daze.  They know something is wrong but thus far have not demonstrated the mental capacity of grasping the problem in its totality as long as the pigmentation of Obama's skin stays dark. But without a more complete grasp of these things and more effective and intellectually more coherent solutions than a political reflex and actions that contain far more depth that it collectively has been capable of demonstrating thus far, something just as ugly as the Holocaust will arise.

Listen up because this is a key problem. It has become politically incorrect to talk about the wholly disproportional disparity in Abortion rates among young black women. Mention it to Black folks and a litany of politically correct diatribes come flowing out of the mouth of Black apologists and their Uncle Tom stooges that the mega corporations put in the media as their 'leaders'. Who put the idea in the minds of Black people that killing up a large swath of a whole generation of Blacks is 'good' and must be defended? Think it maybe a guy who wears a white sheet and burns crosses at night and wears a swastika tattoo? Did that ever occur to Black America? How has a people become so brainwashed they defend rather than are outraged by these things? Go back and find out what is behind it, who is paying for and politically supporting this new holocaust (I use that word with care) with money. This is not rocket science. This is common sense but as long as Black America has a blindfold and keeps their brain in permanent idle while it remains firmly implanted in the part of their body meant for sitting on because the President is Black, the racists have 18 more months to put their plans in motion while Black folks politically defend their own extermination. These racists must be splitting their sides laughing at our own complicity in our own extermination.

 Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
(Isa 66:3b-4)
But you can't seem to get Black Americans to pull their heads out. They don't see this Nazi-beast rising up ALL OVER - and think that things cannot go back to the way they were back in the 40's and 50's. Where "No Negro's" and "Whites Only" signs were part of the American social, economic and political backdrop.

But slavery brothers and sisters is already here. Today if your Black, its 'Three strikes and your Hired'. Yes, this is the new slavery.

In Nazi Germay
The NAZIs during World War II implemented a slave and forced labor program to supply needed labor to the German war industry. This program was approved by Hitler months before the 1939 invasion of Poland. The German program as it evolved during the War had two purposes, The primary purpose was two provide workers for German factories and farms as German manpower was to be directed into the armed forces....The German program as it evolved during the War had two purposes, one to supply workers for the German War effort and two to weaken other countries and ethnic groups. The conscription of large numbers of healthy workers was conceived of denying other countries the sector of the population most willing to resist the NAZIs. This was especially true of the ethnic groups's deemed inferior by the NAZI racial ideologies and in in particular the Slavs.  - Children in History  More here

In The USA
Prisoners earning 23 cents an hour in U.S. federal prisons are manufacturing high-tech electronic components for Patriot Advanced Capability 3 missiles, launchers for TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) anti-tank missiles, and other guided missile systems. A March article by journalist and financial researcher Justin Rohrlich of World in Review is worth a closer look at the full implications of this ominous development - WorkersWorld

Do I need to tell you who primarily make up the new slaves? More here.

It is my hope and prayer that Americans, particularly Black Americans wake up pull their heads out of the TV, sports, alcohol, pot and porn and figure this out... quick. There is still time to repent and seek God's face. Don't wait till it is too late.

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

(Isa 1:15-16)

But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number. Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.
(Isa 65:11-14)


For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
(2Sa 22:22)

I have long believed that God was going to use Black America in the waning days of America as a light when the nation was getting spiritually darker to help steer her in the right direction. I think that was how God wanted to use Black America in these times. But that plan, like his plan for Israel went sour when rebellion and sin moved into the souls of the people and they exchanged wisdom for folly and God for an idol and false savior. Much of the problem is that Black folks are not being given good and accurate information about what is happening. The other part of the problem is too many don't want to be bothered with it even if they get it.

Finally, I am only partially sorry for the tone of this message. I don't want to come off too hard because I know there is still a (very) little time left for Black America to repent and get right. But I don't see that happening. Individually yes.. in one-sies and two-sies. But collectively? I think the coffin lid is about to be shut and the box lowered into the ground and any further discourse on this matter to Black America will be akin to necromancy (talking to the dead). They have been sufficiently anesthetized and blinded from seeing both their condition and where they are going to even consider repenting. Besides, many of my Black Compatriots hate God and you will find more than a few Black folks who will come right out and say it. They hate his ways and they show it with their blind support for the Presidents truly anti-God, anti-Christ and reprobate policies. They no longer understand what is happening to them. There is a blindness that has descended on so many. They knee jerk their victimologists  terminology and recite the latest black political sloganisms and rationalizations that are often utterly devoid of the harsh realities and the simple truths their mental conditioning has been effective in avoiding. Far too many simply refuse to deal in hard facts and look squarely at their own abominable deeds. God does not like what he see's in Black America. Let me say that again, God DOES NOT LIKE WHAT HE SEES IN BLACK AMERICA. Let me make this plain I do not hate gay people and more importantly, God does not hate gay people, but he demands that the homosexual repents of his homosexuality if such a person is to avoid eternal punishment which for many, will start even before the grave. God loves sinners, but demands that those sinners repent - be they adulterers, murderers, homosexuals, thieves, fornicators, liars, swindlers... Do you know what happens when you point out these things? Black folks don't want to hear them. They want you to tell them smooth things and deceits 'make me feel good while I run down the abortion clinic and murder my child' .

Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
(Isa 30:8-10)

They do not want to hear these things right now. They don't want to hear that their biggest problem is not the Nazi and Klansman with a police badge, it is God in heaven who is about to hand Black America over to the Nazi and the Klansman with the police badge for their myriad of unrepentant sins and abominable deeds. Brothers, I am not here to give you a sermon based on the world's twisted anti-Christ morality. But to tell you what God thinks of these things and what he will do to those who practice them with no sign of repentance. You want corporate manufactured politically correct? Go and listen to Al Sharpton. You want into the Kingdom of Heaven? Blow the dust off that Bible and crack it open, read and heed it.

Brothers, if you don't want to see Ferguson as a daily occurrence and be picked up and sent to a UNICOR facility for the crime of being Black Outside, wake up before God gives you over to your enemies and closes his ears to your cries for help when your enemies are given authority to have their way with you. Our crimes as a people and as a nation are flashing red for Judgment. How many MILLIONS of Black children have been murdered by our people? How many of our young black men have turned to crime and violence? How long will Black folks sit still while their Black President gives a green light to this evil and this man's full political support to RACIST Nazi's?  You think this kind of racism is OK? Do you? Well, when you whine about it in the future as it effects YOU, no one, not even GOD HIMSELF is going to hear you.  Stop burying your head in politically correct slogans and excuses and take a good, hard and honest look at where we as a people are spiritually, morally and ethically. I can tell you that God has. He wants to help, but can't and won't until we as a people take the first step.... REPENT!

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
(Isa 1:15-20)

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isa 55:6-9)

I think these recent cop shootings  of Black men are 'dry runs' for a future that I have been and will be talking about in the near future (to insiders). They are testing the political waters and seeing if they can get away with it. How many of these cops who gun down un-armed Black men in cold blood do you see in Jail? The light has turned 'green' for the racists.



Inform yourself.

Reject wickedness, selfishness, foolishness and consider your people, your brothers and the less fortunate.

Add get on your knees and REPENT while you still can.

'Soft' Nazi-ism
What we need to understand here is that for years, unbeknownst to most Americans is that we have  been operating under a kind of soft Nazi-ism. They are now moving to harden it up here in the west (think all the NSA spying and new Federal regulations). One of the things we should be aware of is the whole Surveillance thing. This is so very important to understand brothers because you cannot have a long lasting fascistic (fascism-Nazi-ism) system without a rock solid surveillance system and a system where detention without trial exists. Both are essential to modern fascism.

America, Black America in particular is under a delusion. He is sitting in the White House.  They have been bamboozled and fooled by the devil and his imps. Here is the amazing thing. We have seen all these shootings of black men across the nation and not one NOT ONE cop has been arrested {The first key arrests took place about four days after this was written}. We have a Black President AND a Black Attorney General. My brothers, you are never going to see what is going on as long as you have that blindfold on refuse to do something novel, like turning that brain to the 'on' position and stop letting NBC, FOX, BET, ABC, PBS, ABC and these tomified Black Leaders (who get paid by rich non-black men) do your thinking for you.

I really hope some of my Black brethren get their act together before they find themselves being starved in some prison for a the 'crime' of being Black and alive at the same time. Let's take a look at a very small snippet of  some history.


Yes, the FBI had a plan to put an Uncle Tom as leader of the Black movement after they dispensed with Dr. King. In 21st century America, they have succeeded and if you really want to know what I think I think after those riots in Ferguson all those old FBI COINTEL programs that targeted Black folks have been reactivated. Very quietly and very secretly by two Black men who for political reasons don't want you to know whose side they have been 'compelled (for lack of a better word) to be on. I could be wrong,  but for reasons I cannot explain online I think these things were done many months ago. Read your history. learn From it or be doomed to repeat it without the ultimate success Dr. King had.

These Screen shots come directly from the Official Hearings on the Assassination of Dr. King and the program to destroy Black Movements in the past. It was part of the Church Committee named after Senator Frank Church.  Keep in mind, this was not Nazi's and Klansman doing this - this was the FBI!

Consider this as well.

What Are They Planning Now? Let me give you a hint of a possibility. Something is coming very soon and this time, it does not appear to be a dry run  for reasons I have spelled out to insiders.

I cannot apologize for the tone of this message. Like anyone who as a job or an office, he often has unpleasant duties to perform. A Judge may have to sentence a mother of 5 to a long term in jail. A President may be forced to order a bombing of a city with a large civilian population. A cop to inform a father of the death of his son in a traffic accident. These are not things people like to  do, but they have to if they are to do their jobs.

I am just doing my job. A Watchman's job is to watch and warn. I am that annoying fellow whose job it is to tell you that God's standards have not and will not change, no matter how much brainwashing, political correctness, false leaders, false idols and false pastors tell you otherwise.

You have been warned.

Submitted for your prayerful consideration.
