 - What I See...

A quick look (15 pages) at some trends I see and don't see. Trends in the economy, trends in 'people control' and spiritual matters

 - 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.

 - Special Report: Watson's Economic Crisis Report 


This issue of my new series of paid reports deals with the ongoing global economic crisis. Its about 40 pages and deals with a wide range of issues that face the western world. This touches on America's decline, Obama's new Treasury pick, the ongoing debt crisis, the Fed and Treasuries debt monetization operations, currency wars, scenario's for major troubles in China, Europe's ongoing crisis and ...

 - 3 Short Commentaries


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.

 -  Lamentations Are Coming 


I think we as Christians need to keep in mind and prepare our souls for what is really coming. Mr. Leal has done a good job of laying out that a time of great sorrow will sweep America.

 -  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 issue is mostly about American oil and leadership. It is a 30 page overview of America's oil situation and new claims that America will one day surpass the Saudi's in Oil production and become energy independent. The question is an extremely important one and could really alter the whole geopolitical landscape... if true. Are these claims real and credible? Are there any problems with them? This ...

 - Watson's Economic And Political Review (WEPR) #1 


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 ...

 - What's Expected Of Son's And Heir's 


What should we as Christians should be doing in these times? As these days grow darker and increasingly rejects Christ and genuine Christianity, we who wish to get into the kingdom must know what God wants us to do. What does God expect of us, we who are determined no matter what comes, to get into God's kingdom and avoid his holy wrath, which I bear witness, is coming to this world and will usher ...

 - In The Kingdom Of The Blind 


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. God spoke clearly and insistently that we are to be watching and ready for our Lords return. 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 ...

 - We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Broadcast To Bring You... 


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. They listen to their pastors, read the news, but more and more are seriously questioning both. 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 ...

For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words,

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression.
In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged.
And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air
– however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”

I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.

Corrupt America: Beauty Queen Says She Will Not Commit Suicide

There has been a long pattern of 'Akancides' of the couple of decades.

Corrupt America: Whistleblower Stabbed, Burned Alive In Home

Looks like the police are the prime suspect in this arson-homocide. This is 'in your face' corruption.

As you all know I have had all manner of problems not so long ago and to tell you the truth, I just think some of it may still be going on but 'off the books' and not within the law. Why did they go after me. Most of it is because I am Black and a Christian and have a very, very influential group of people who follow what the 'Religious Lunatic from Maryland' has to say. But the trigger? I went 'off narrative' on them on the Ukraine Crisis. They wanted Nazi's in power to start slaughtering Russians (i.e., create, promulgate and sustain a race war)  and I spoke out about them. That is when I was targeted. They thought they could co-opt or control me. They still might kill me and I do not jest. Now think about it. What would we think if on a major Russian Network a Russian General says that they need to 'start killing Americans'? You and I would be understandably outraged.

There really is a deeply ingrained network of hard core racists that operate at the very top (Executive level)  inside these intel agencies. I know many in the agency want to 'take me out'  and have for a long, long time. But God has not allowed that. Go back to the 80's and MENA Arkansas scandal and the CIA's crack cocaine operation, that targeted Black neighborhoods and put thousands of Black men in jail. These are not rumors, these things happened and the perpetrators, as usual, did not go to jail and over the years, some rose very high in the US government. And just so you know, not all of them are White-men. When they can find a Black person who hates Black folks more than they do, such people can be exceptionally useful to their racist ends. This is one reason I put that open letter up to the folks at Black Lives Matter. They really don't know what they are up against. Perhaps some one somewhere has broken the law and went against their orders and hipped some of them as to the 'real deal' so they don't wind up making little rocks out of big rocks in some set-up for the 'crime' of trying to help our people. I rather think this may have happened. I sure hope so.

But know this. Congress' longest serving Congressman (who happens to be Black) put a stop to these evil works. He was deeply concerned that all that training and arms we were giving these Nazi's bands would wind up over here in the US and giving homegrown Nazi's and racists a shot in the arm, so to speak, using the DOD and US taxpayer dollars in an indirect fashion. Great news, isn't it? Well, don't party yet. They just gutted the provision he put in there. I know many of you thought I was talking out of my posterior when I pointed these things out a couple of years ago because all of the 'conspiracy sites' that you trusted to tell you didn't. Why didn't they?

There is a 'false prophet' network out there on the internet. Think of them as 'controlled opposition' they are used to get you to trust them most of the time, so that when key moments come, they can deceive and misdirect you at those very important and critical moments. These guys I am here to tell you are EVERYWHERE on the net. Beware.

So many of these guys out there claiming to be saved are working for either voluntarily or involuntarily for a US or foreign intelligence service. If they are out there for any length of time and have any kind of a following, they will get a visit and those who do come a knocking, will seemingly be a really nice person who 'wants to help'.

He wants to help you one way or another into their network of disinformation and they will try and set you up to get you in it. That 'nice guy'? He's sizing you up, looking for the softest point in your back to place a knife in when you turn it on him. But he may maneuver you over to the hole he dug for you to spare himself the trouble of burying you when he's done.

Hence my troubles.

Dear readers, I will never do that. I will never EVER get that close to the devil's workmen again. I blocked the phone numbers to those who used to want to 'help' from my phone well over a year ago and as soon as one of these guys come within visual range, I will go the other direction.

So fret not that I will ever be co-opted by these dark workmen.

But beware, many, many have.

Christians out there who have a blog or site, run churches or other ministries that inform people? I ask you to be on your guard. I exhort you in the name of Jesus Christ to remember your responsibility to other Christians, to those who listen to you and that you take the greatest care in trusting anyone who seems to have a special inside scoop on things or who comes out of nowhere and says they want to help. Don't be overly suspicious, but keep a healthy degree of cautious distance until you get a better read on who you are dealing with. Why?

Because the devil would love to devour you and your ministry.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions
are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace,
who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that
ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.
(1Pe 5:8-11)

I request a prayer for myself as well. Mostly for personal safety. As you probably read my letter (scroll down a ways on this page) to my Senator, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, there are some issues that need to be resolved. While many think it unwise to deal with the CIA and DOD in this manner, I would agree, in the natural realm. But you know what? Other Christian bloggers have been done the same way - some shut their blogs down, others wind up being 'co-opted' (I won't link to that one) and others are jailed or have 'accidents'.

I am going to shine a light on this crap while the Oversight Committee's in the House And Senate are finally finding their legs. But will do so without compromising ongoing ops or covert personnel. As strongly as I feel about some of these guys and the dirt they are doing, there are still a lot of good people who really put their lives on the line for the nation. I will never jeopardize their lives or legally sanctioned (key phrase here) operations. But if they start running Heroin into places like Ferguson and I will scream to high heaven. I am not accusing anyone of this horrible epidemic here at this time. But I cannot help but wonder...

So I need prayer along those lines, when they find someone they don't like they dig and dig and dig and do whatever they can to find some dirt on them and if they can't find it, they resort to 'other methods'.

The person I was dealing with was supposed to be protecting me from that kind of stuff, it was part of his job. Their job is to PROTECT Americans, not target and harass them. If I told you my life was in danger, I would not be exaggerating. The good news is I have just enough light on me to make them think twice. Some powerful folks keep their eye on what the 'Religious Lunatic From Maryland' has to say. If I vanish, questions WILL BE ASKED.

So if somehow you find that I have been arrested for a operating meth lab, or molesting kids, or building nuclear bomb in my kitchen sink, or they found 'secret' evidence I was behind the JFK assassination (LOL!) , take what you hear with a grain of salt. They do those kinds of things to destroy a person's credibility.   They have been through my house and computers already at least once and I am pretty sure multiple times. So if they 'find' something new or manufacture some 'evidence' be aware of where it's coming from. The devil's slime factory.

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)

I don't think I have much to worry about... until we get a new President. Then I think I could run into trouble. Clinton does not like me much (at all - she blocked my site from any access at the State Department when she ran it) and Trump does not appear to like Black folks much. In fact, it was Hillary Clinton who first called me 'that Religious Lunatic from Maryland!!'
Again, keep me in your prayers!

God bless all of you as you serve our Lord, Jesus Christ!

Corrupt America: Who Is Really The Most Corrupt On Earth

We hear about how bad others are. But when you stop and look at what is going on here and what no one is doing anything about, you simply cannot say that this nation is not among the most corrupt in the world.

Corrupt America: Corruption Endemic To American Way Of Life

A very good post. I say all of these things not to lambaste this once great land, but to make this point - This land will not stay great much longer if we let these kinds of criminal acts continue. Capitol Hill will not fix any of these things - read that link, your reps, for the most part are part of an endemic system of bribery, payola and corruption that no one has the courage and the wherewithal to fix. It's not endemic to one party or one group of politicians, they are all involved to greater or lesser degree's, if only by their silent acquiesce to long standing known criminal acts of their colleagues and respective political parties.

It's everywhere -  in our courts, Law Enforcement, City Halls and it's systemic. But the people are given steady doses of entertainment and pleasures and they don't mark it. But as more and more people fall out of the work force, benefits are cut (as they are now more here) they won't have any other choice but to mark it, because the pain of it will be felt in their daily lives.

 Yes, I know many of you don't understand all that economic stuff I have been posting for years. But now the reality is coming into view. Social Security as we know it, is heading into some very serious fiscal headwinds. All that money that they stole out of it (yes they did) and used it to fight these wars? Now the chickens are coming home to roost. They want to save the program and can't. There is just not enough money.

You know what? Let me tell you something. We just passed 19 Trillion dollars in debt, and the President just proposed another record breaking spending bill. Washington is still smoking economic crack.

I don't want to give the impression that it's the end of the world, but as far as the way we as a nation have been putting off hard choices, those days are over. Somebody has to pay for all of these programs and no one wants to. But the butcher is at the door and he wants his money.

He just happened to bring his meat cleaver with him as he not-so-politely requests payment for his prior services.

Justice Reform: Is It Dead?

(Marshall Project) Among advocates campaigning to reduce the country’s bloated prison population and invest in rehabilitation, there is a growing sense that a) Congress is unlikely to pass anything this year worthy of being called reform, and b) it might be better to start over in 2017.

Even the decidedly modest reforms that had some momentum a few months ago – measures that would mainly reduce mandatory minimum sentences for some drug offenders – have run into fierce opposition from law-and-order hawks such as Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, who credits mandatory minimums for the 25-year decline in violent crime.

Major reform still has a formidable array of advocates. President Obama yearns to make justice reform part of his legacy and has lobbied for it in public and in private. House Speaker Paul Ryan has also professed support, as a way of slowing the community-destroying cycle of poverty, crime and punishment, not to mention a way of demonstrating that the GOP is not indifferent to the blacks and Latinos who are disproportionately ground up in the current system. Reform is backed by a strange-bedfellows alliance of conservative and progressive interest groups and by many big-city law enforcement officials. And a new poll released Thursday by the Pew Charitable Trusts finds strong public support for reducing or even eliminating mandatory minimum sentences and letting prisoners earn time off their sentences by participating in programs like job training and drug counseling. - The Marshall Project

Native American Lives Matter

The police are killing Native Americans at almost the same rate they killed African-Americans. Yet these deaths are rarely covered beyond local news stories. That may be beginning to change, but editors still are struggling to find new ways to tell stories about the underlying causes of problems within Native communities.

Carmel Alert: News From Israel From A Messianic Jewish Perspective

...Then there are the increasing number of universities, businesses, organisations, and even churches that are boycotting Israeli goods and services because of the way they perceive that Israel is dealing with the so called Palestinians. In most case these claims are unfounded but Israel is becoming more condemned and isolated as the weeks by. - Carmel Alert

NH: Trump And Sanders Trounce Opposition

Two political outsiders have done very well in NH and unlike the caucuses we had last week, these do not appear to have been rigged up by each party's respective dirty tricks division. Corrupt politicians resort to corrupt methods to win elections. I think what NH showed us is that many Americans are tired of the corruption. They are looking for basic honesty. Politicians like Hillary, lack those qualities according to polls.

What do I think? I think for once, the pundits are right - both of these candidates are tapping in to an enormous amount of rage that is out there at the political establishment. There are two qualities that both of the winners have that the others don't, weather you like them nor not. Both are seen to  be telling voters the truth about what they want to do when they get in. Trump has tapped into an incredible amount of 'Angry White Male' rage, the GOP suburban anger that has its own issues with what is wrong with the nation. Sanders is the same, he is tapping into a lot of rage from young people and working men and women who voted for Obama, and got screwed in the process. They want someone with a track record of looking out for the little guy, not some automaton who tells them they are looking out for them and them goes in the backroom and negotiates yet another job killing Free Trade deal. Did you know that the number of working age people not working has hit a record high 94 million. Notice I did not say 'unemployed' I said 'not working'. Here is the real result of Obamanomics.

Federal Reserve/ BLS
Now before any of you hot-headed political automaton's get your undies tied up in a knot, and fire off a 'nasty-gram' to me, know this - I did not 'cherry pick' this data. I did not create it. The GOP did not create it. In fact, the people who gave us these numbers are the exact same ones who are lying to the people saying we have a 5% unemployment rate. That agency (the BLS) is controlled by a Democrat. His name is Barak Obama. So the real number of people not working is not 5% it's 37.3%. To be fair, that number includes special categories of people people like those who are disabled. But also keep in mind that even among those people who are working many are part timers, temps, bartenders and floors sweepers. More here.

Yet, the real issues here is one of semantics and propaganda. Dear readers, it works - the wealthy and powerful pay for propaganda because it works so very, very well. They way they get that low number (5%) is...well to not put too fine a point on it, is by lying. They just pull people out of the 'employment' pool once they cannot find a job after 6 months. They use a different words for those people. They call them 'discouraged workers'. It does not matter if you were beating the bushes for 10 hours a day 6 days a week looking for work and cannot find a job. The key here is that the government cannot count such people in order to maintain the 5% narrative, so they have a new category for people who are not working. Again. This is all about propaganda and semantics it's about a narrative. They must give the illusion of a full labor force to give impetus to the implementation of these new job killing Free Trade Agreements, of which the TPP is only one. The lie is imperative and people must believe the lie or at least not get too mad about being lied to.

How deeply ingrained is all of this propaganda in the American political system? I mean really? Sit down take a moment are read this one. I think you will find it most enlightening and from it you will see why it costs so much to get to the White House. These guys and others like them want money alot of money for their 'services'.

(Voltaire.net) Just as today, there exist mercenary armies like Blackwater-Academi, DynCorp or CACI, there also exist private companies specialised in psychological operations, like the British company SCL (Strategic Communications Laboratories) and its US subsidiary Cambridge Analytica. In the strictest secret, they have helped the CIA to organise the « colour revolutions » and are now branching out into the manipulation of the electoral public. Since 2005, they have been participating in the British Defense Systems & Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition, and sell their services to the highest bidder [3]. Concerning Syria, SCL worked in early 2011 in Lebanon, where it studied the the possibilities of manipulating the population community by communuity.

In modern societies, the political authorities are chosen by election. That may range from a simple choice between pre-selected candidates – according to their personal qualities – to the designation of personalities who are offering a specific political project. In any case, the candidates have to rely on their militants or their employees in order to wage their campaign. We know that the winner is always the person who is able to gather the greatest number of militants. It is therefore necessary not only to fabricate a candidate, but also a party or a movement to support them. However, today’s electors hesitate to subscribe to an organisation, and employees are expensive. SCL came up with the idea of using behavioural techniques in order to fabricate a political party which would sweep its client to power. Its psychologists define the profile-type of the sincere and manipulable militant, then collect the data from the target population, determine who best corresponds to their profile, and design the most efficient messages to convince them to support their client.

For the first time, this stratagem has just been implemented on a huge scale – in the United States, with Ted Cruz.

Financing the operation

Robert Mercer, one of the principle donors to US public life, has indirectly paid more than 15 million dollars to SCL-Cambridge Analytica for them to handle Ted Cruz’s campaign [4].

Inventor of a vocal recognition software product, Mercer is today the boss of Renaissance, one of the top investment companies in the world. Between 1989 and 2006, his famous Medaillon fund made an average of 35 % profit per year, at the same time as designing a tax-evasion system for his clients [5].

Robert Mercer has never made any comment about his political opinions, and the US commentators don’t really know how to classify this « Republican ». No-one knows, for example, his position on social problems such as the right to abortion or gay marriage. At best, we know that he does not believe that climate change is caused by human activity, that he clearly opposes Hillary Clinton and his friend Donald Trump, and is close to John Bolton -

Propaganda, I am telling you that this stuff is in almost every single MSM article, TV news and political pundit show you read and see.  The good news though is that people on the left are not buying the Obamalony or the Clinton 'cigars' anymore. Americans, thankfully are just a bit, not much, but just a bit more sophisticated these days. Three to six months in the unemployment line tends to do that to people. Nor are they swallowing up the same old refrain from the liars on the political right either. There are millions of Americans who are truly fed up with Washington as usual. I have long been one of them. I have never voted for the two party system because I see both of them as being the number one problem in America. The way to solve that problem is to send both parties home packing, with a few taking a long detour via federal prison.

America is not ready for that yet. They are still listening to the two party system as though it will change things. I can tell you that no matter how sincere either Trump or Sanders are, they will be tools of their respective parties and simply will not be able to do much when they get into office. They may honestly want to do many of the things they say and in each case to their credit, I think they do. The problem is Washington - the cesspool of lobbyists, bankers, elitists, intelligence officials, PAC's and yes, traitors who infest the halls of power. They are there to make absolutely certain that nothing the people want ever gets put into law, and even it it does, it's never actually put into practice or is enforced.

Dear readers, I know I have hit some sacred cows here. People don't like to deal in  reality and that is why we are in the mess we are in today. No one wants to hear these things because no one wants to fix these things - not really. Anger is not enough, it's time the people got angry, yes -  but that is not enough. Getting a whole new swath of leaders in the White House, Congress and the Senate that reflect the will of the people rather than lobbyists and the ultra-wealthy is.

Yes, there is anger out there and unlike our President who says you should not vote your anger, I say, yes - by all means vote your anger - that is exactly where your anger should be channeled. Not in violent revolution or hate, not in these (paid for) political attacks on TV or on the internet,  but at the ballot box.

But the dangers I see coming are considerable. I think the threat here is far beyond what people think it is. When I read portions of the TPP and the power they give the corporations and how the rights of people are gutted, I say to myself, America does not know that once these agreements pass, our courts will no longer be guided by the Constitution. The treaty (which supersedes the Constitution) sets up a new court that is higher than our constitution and Supreme Court. We will see our jobs go away. Right now all the major corporations who were there negotiating this agreement IN SECRET are going to spend millions on a PR campaign to tell you that it's not true, but I ask you to go and look at that chart above and know this - these corporations think that anyone who has a living wage, is making too much money. They don't like living wages, they like wages that increase their bottom line. That's why so many go to places like Bangladesh to hire workers. They don't have to pay them much and often, they are not paid at all - they are defrauded after they work in those sweat shops with no one to complain to.

But the danger I see here in this nation is a little different. As these agreements are brought online and people realize that there is nothing they can do at the ballot box to change them. There is going to be a very different kind of anger. I mean there is going to be some real anger because Obama and his corporate henchman are working very hard to do and end run around democracy. They want to make sure that in the future, you can be as mad as you want to be and there won't a darn thing you can do about it. Your votes will be nothing more than 'suggestions' to international trade bodies whose sole aim will be to reduce wages, gut worker rights and increase corporate profits as they dictate US law.

Right now, the people don't get this and once this agreement passes (probably right around Christmas when the President and Congress are both Lame Ducks and need not face any voter anger for the passage), America over the next decade will change in remarkable and horrible ways. In short, if you are part of the 99%, buy some Vaseline, because once they bend you over the corporate rail with your drawers wrapped around your ankle,  you are going to need it.

I know folks don't like when I get so raw, but simply put, there is no 'nice', PC or pretty way to describe what these guys have in store for working Americans. How do I know the American people don't know? Because if they knew, really knew,  there would be strikes, work stoppages, mass protests and other acts that made their desire plain to the powers that be. Instead, their answer is to watch the Super Bowl. 

However, if you are part of the 1%, then the TPP is for you.

The threat as I see it coming, not right away, but once these portions of these agreements get phased in is this. Sooner or later the State governments are going to look for a way to get out of America - yes, I mean succession.  It will be the only way to get out of these agreements with hell. Believe it or not, this has already been a problem that has run right into several governors chairs. They have kept it very, very quiet, but yes, talk and just a little more than talk have been noted in some States at the political/elected official level.

There are a range of issues that DC has rammed down the States throats and many in the State Houses realize that Washington, or rather, the forces that have captured Washington are the problem.

People, local and State governments sooner or later are going to look at succession as being the answer. I don't think it is or will solve anything really - but they won't be asking me. I will tell you this - our leaders both far and wide are warning of major problems with social stability coming. They know it's coming and so do I. It's just a question of when and just how bad it gets. Things like the employment disaster that will follow the TPP passage over the next decade will only exacerbate problems considerably. I also know this. If you take a way a persons right to democratic input, they will find another form of 'input' and that is not a scenario I or any sane person desires.

What Americans failed to understand with Obama is that his candidacy was never about 'Black' or people power or anything like that. That was what he paid is propagandists to get folks to believe. He was always about handing over more power to the major corporations and limiting the choices of Americans. He has been exceptionally adept at the use of media and propaganda to deceive Americans as to who he really was and represented. Only now, 7 years later has the first layer of self-blinding scales fallen off the eyes of the American voter.

There are still several more layers that must fall off before they can really see.

Our nation just does not have that much time.

For your information and for full disclosure sake: I do not support either of the two parties and will not vote for their candidates.

Hosea Part VI

The last chapter of Hosea we left off with the Prophet chiding Israel for her whoredom and being joined to idols. His description was of a people totally depraved; sexually and spiritually. Chapter five begins with a pronouncement against the Religious establishment (priests) and the King.

Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear,
O house of the king; for judgment is toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah,
and a net spread upon Tabor. And the revolters are profound to make slaughter,
though I have been a rebuker of them all. I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me:
 for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.

(Hos 5:1-3)

The Lord begins by pronouncing judgment on both classes of rulers - the secular and religious establishment. Both had led Israel astray into the hands of sexual and spiritual depravity. The anger of the Lord is clear to this class of people. They were a snare on Mizhah and Tabor. These two words are the names of places but also have connotations of being high places. 
Feminine of H4708; Mitspah, the name of two places in Palestine. (This seems rather to be only an orthographical variation of H4708 when ‘in pause’.): - Mitspah. [This seems rather to be only an orthographical variationof H4708 when “in pause”.]

here is what Eaton's Bible Dictionary says about it.

Mizpah; Mizpeh
miz´pa, miz´pe: This name is pointed both ways in the Hebrew, and is found usually with the article. The meaning seems to be “outlook” or “watchtower.” It is natural, therefore, to look for the places so named in high positions commanding wide prospects. - Eaton's Bible Dictionary

From a root corresponding to H8406; broken region; Tabor, a mountain in Palestine, also a city adjacent: - Tabor.

Eaton's Says this about it

A height.
(1.) Now Jebel et-Tur, a cone-like prominent mountain, 11 miles west of the Sea of Galilee. It is about 1,843 feet high. The view from the summit of it is said to be singularly extensive and grand. This is alluded to in Psa_89:12; Jer_46:18. It was here that Barak encamped before the battle with Sisera (q.v.) Jdg_4:6-14. There is an old tradition, which, however, is unfounded, that it was the scene of the transfiguration of our Lord. (See HERMON.) “The prominence and isolation of Tabor, standing, as it does, on the border-land between the northern and southern tribes, between the mountains and the central plain, made it a place of note in all ages, and evidently led the psalmist to associate it with Hermon, the one emblematic of the south, the other of the north.” There are some who still hold that this was the scene of the transfiguration (q.v.).
Both of these words denote a high place. The high places were known as places where idolatrous worship and sex orgies took place and these places had become a snare to the people, under the leadership of the reprobate priesthood and king.

Verse two continues on with the same theme noting that they lived to make slaughter. The word profound according to the JFB is noting just how far the leadership of Israel had sunk in their depravity as he quotes from Calvin. But he goes on to note that he thinks that they were profoundly cunning in their idolatry and devised new ways of idolatrous worship noting the Golden Calf set up in Bethe-el. Other commentators think that this is a reference to cunning ways they trapped animals in those days and perhaps was referring to the way they trapped men into that kind of worship in those days.

Others think it was a reference to the killing of those who refused to bow down to these idols. The passage is not clear and it is quite possible that the prophet to some degree had all three categories in mind, Israel had sunk just that low. The Lord then tells them he was going to rebuke them all. No order or level of society would escape divine reproof and judgement. The translators make this a past tense and this may also be a reference to the prophets that the Lord had sent to the people before Judgement fell.

Despite their attempt at hiding their intentions and actions from other men, the Lord sees all. They could put on any kind front or pose they wanted to, God knew their hearts and he lays it bare  Ephraim committed Whoredom and Israel is defiled and the Lord was going to recompense them.

They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD. And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them. They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
(Hos 5:4-6)

Again we find this powerful spirit of whoredoms mentioned. So before we continue on with Hosea, let's talk just a bit about this spirit.

When one things of a whore one thinks of a woman who sells her sex for money. She is nasty, though she may be beautiful. These days, she is probably diseased, though telling her customers this may not be in her interest, so she will hide it. But a successful whore is indeed a good looking woman and is well paid. She is a head turner and gets rich sleeping with men for money. It is this image that God is evoking in his words against Israel in those days. She as supposed to be married to the Lord and was out cavorting with idols in outrageous acts of worship that deeply offended and angered the Lord. This spirit was deeply ingrained in ancient Israel. This however we must remember is a spiritual stronghold. It has deep demonic underpinnings and like all demons seek to keep man from fulfilling God's purpose for them. The spirit of whoredom is not just known in ancient Israel. It is a spirit that exists today in the United States of America, where our political and religious class can be and are often bought by forces who hate the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ.

The purpose of these spirits are the same as it was back in Hosea's day, to lead the nation away from God and into the arms of the devil. This was the problem back then and it is certainly happening now in Babylon the Great. Yes, it is America, though man will tell you otherwise. The last days personification of this spirit comes in the center of the economic and political world of the last days, a nation that sells her soul for money. Both the system then and now are marked by false religion and worship. While it is true that Christians have made up the majority of people in this nation since its inception, the real religious spirit since the foundation of America lies not in Christianity, but in Freemasonry.

Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries,
wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit,
if so be thou mayest prevail.

(Isa 47:12)

The word of the Lord to the Spirit of Babylon.

Freemasons have considerable power over all branches of government and it is by their secret meetings, incantations and oaths, that this nation is run mostly in secret. The people and those who are not privy to the Masonic secrets are given false information and narratives to explain why this or that policy is now the law of the Land. I can remember talking with in 32 degree Mason years ago who had left. He explaied how they tell masons the meanings of this or that rite or symbol at one level and then when they get higher, they realize they were not told the truth about it at the lower level.

The masons are very powerful and their membership reaches into corporate board rooms, the Judge's bench, the White House, Congress, Their roots go deep and into almost all of the world's current governments. Not just western, but also Islamic and Jewish as well. While apologists the world over will make excuses for it, the real spiritual foundation of the current Global order is predicated on the foundation of Masonic Occultism. (keep in mind that Baphomet, as far as I can determine from years of looking into Freemasonry is not an official Masonic God and the connection between the two seems to stem from the use of this god by a group of Templar's long ago). Though frankly I have my doubts. Recent events make one think that there is more to Baphomet than meets the eye... or ear!

We have seen the same theme in other prophets. I note specifically the secret rituals that Ezekiel observed in his day.

He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations. And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about. And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth. He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
(Eze 8:6-13)

But keep these things in mind if you choose to research this topic of Masorny and secret occult religion. The devil will do his level best to downplay and deny some of the truths and connections I have just stated. He works overtime to differentiate between Satanism/Occultism and modern Freemasonry. While administratively there may be some notable differences, spiritually they are from the same spiritual cesspool and consequently, they must be avoided by any true Christian who wants to avoid the same kinds of spiritual pollutions that Hosea warned Israel about in his day. The devil is a master at the art of confusion and I will tell you, many of these sites have put this or that myth about Freemasonry up there just so that it can be debunked (by them) and Christians wind up looking like fools. Be warned - the spirit of Freemasonry is all over the US and its information and intelligence agencies. They love to play the 'insert a lie and then debunk it' game often doing it just to make people look like fools for believing them.

Don't believe them  - get the facts all the facts not the carefully inserted lies that is designed to make you look like a fool and get people to stop listening to you.

But the spirit of whoredom as described in the last days by the Holy Apostles lays it all out that any honest and sincere Christian  can see where it is centered today and why it is doing what it is doing today. There is a spirit that goes with it. Like the perversions of ancient Israel, the spirit of whoredom always is accompanied by abominations.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
(Rev 17:4-5)
If we go to the next verse, just like in Hosea the spirit of slaughter is noted.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:
and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

(Rev 17:6)

This beautiful whore (who caused John to Marvel) was killing God's people with, as Hosea would put it, profound slaughter. So what Hosea is describing in reality has very real and deep ramifications for us in our times. For as our world especially in the west shuffles off its Christian moorings and moves towards what I will call New Age/Freemasonic Occultism, we are going to be more and more of an anachronism. Even the Catholic Church and many of your protestant denominations have given way to these Babylonian/Satanic Spirits.   They are rising all over the world, even in Israel. But to those of us who know our God and our Bibles, one day, for many of us, our blood will be poured out by entities who are under the control of these demonic spirits who will take over the minds and souls of the world's governments, even as it did in Ancient Israel.

But by contrast we Christians are not to be like the world and go after every adulterous spirit decked in finery. We are to be unlike Israel in ancient times and rather, be faithful. This is one of the three characteristics of those who have the honor of coming with Christ at is second coming.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen,
and faithful

(Rev 17:14)

But as we move back to Hosea we find something interesting here. Before, Judah had not been mentioned as sharing the Judgement of Israel, but in verse five, we see that Ephraim and Israel fall together. Verse six warns of a spiritual place where the men of Israel after having strayed so far will one day seek the Lord - but will not find him. They will probably be seeking God in the day of calamity, when the foreign armies arrive at their borders and then suddenly they will recognize what they all knew deep inside, that the Lord, he is God and those sex god's can't even save them from the venereal diseases they and their lovers contract! But God will not be interested in this phony penance in those days. They are not sorry for their sins, they are only sorry they have to pay for them. The Lord "...he hath withdrawn himself from them."

They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children:
now shall a month devour them with their portions. Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah,
and the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud at Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.
Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke:
among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.

(Hos 5:7-9)

Just like the faithless wife deals treacherously with her husband and begets a brood of illegitimate kids, so has Israel been with God. The phrase a month shall devour their portions is a bit obscure and could  mean a literal month, the month. But the actual word means the New Moon.

From H2318; the new moon; by implication a month: - month (-ly), new moon.
What the connotation here means eludes me. But it may just be a reference to the sacrifices that took place then would be of no avail.  (Hos_6:6; Isa_1:11.; Jer_7:21.; Psa_50:7, Psa_50:8.).

The next section mentions three cities, Gibeah, Ramah and Behaven. These cities were known as places that were to signal when an invasion took place and to warn of danger. God was giving them a sure word of prophecy and the sense here seems be that they should go ahead and blow the Trumpet of warning now, even though they see no enemy because this thing is coming with certainty.

We will continue with Hosea very soon.

Sweden And Refugee: A Law Enforcement Person's View

As promised, this is a view of the migrant crisis in Sweden from someone who is working the issue from a law enforcement perspective in Sweden. Know this, this reader is a very open-minded and most definitely a person who has no racist tendencies. He loves people of all races but see's a serious problem in the way the situation in his country is being handled.  Again remember, he is working with the police on a daily basis and see's things even the Swedish people are not being told. Keep in mind that he has to live this every day, he has a wife and small kids as well and for good reason, he is deeply concerned about recent events. His english is very good and I have cleaned up a few grammatical errors (with his permission) but nevertheless, let the letter flow pretty much as he wrote it.


For those of you who want the shorter version read this abstract, more details and information follows.

What is happening over in Sweden? (A kind of abstract)

The last week there has been an outcry about the Police hiding information and avoiding arresting people that have raped, robbed and sexually harassed young women in public places especially at a big music festival in the capitol Stockholm. And the reason for this is that the Police didn't want the growing party The Sweden Democrats to get more wind in their sails, according to a highranking Police Officers. The Sweden Democrats are the only out of eight parties in the Parliament that opposes the current immigration policies.

While the incidents in Cologne (Germany) and Helsinki (Finland) were slowly being reported by Swedish dailies and TV news it also showed that there had been similar things happening during New Year's Eve in many Swedish cities. And then came the big shocker that an even bigger scandal had happened during a music festival the Summer 2015, and this turned out to be an increase of problems from year before (2014). But it was only now it was made public. So now many Politically Correct politicians, journalists, celebrities and police officials are in a panic and are in damage control mode: we get to hear and read things in media like "this shows that this can happen in Sweden too not only in the Middle East" and that "this is really a problem of men's violence and oppression of women in general that all men, even white native Swedes, should be ashamed of".

The Problem?

It turned out to be mainly two categories of young men committing these crimes:
- young Muslim men from Afghanistan and Iran
- young Muslim men from Morocco that are living in Sweden illegally and hiding from the authorities living on crime

One good thing is that it wasn't mostly (real) refugees from Syria doing this, but the problem is that the immigration wave's biggest single group of people is, you've guessed it, young men from Afghanistan, Iran and Northern Africa. No not all of them have been involved in these KNOWN incidents but shockingly many of them have been.

And by exposing this fact people start to wonder if the politicians behind the current policies are neither ignorant, cowards or traitors.

Background And Detail

For months now there have been rumors and heated discussion in alternative media and around the kitchentables in ordinary Swedish homes about all the problems and fears surrounding the last year's increase in immigrants/refugees/illegal aliens. BEFORE the big wave of people there were approx 60.000, perhaps 100.000 illegal aliens in Sweden. And the politician made laws that forced hospitals and dentists and schools to give illegal aliens the same service as Swedish citizens. Of course helping someone who is in an emergency is the right thing to do, but to fix your tooth decay and teaching your kids to read (and giving them meals everyday) while you are breaking the law and not paying any taxes? And add to this the increased problems with roman (Romany/Gypsy) beggars and growing shanty towns – a complete new and imported phenomenon in Sweden. And all this while politicians and MSM either covering up or supporting the increased tensions and growing problems, setting new records in apathy...and pointing fingers at media and politicians that try to dress these problems. Of course there are right wings populists that try to use the situation, but it all becomes totally absurd when a very well-known politician with heavy ties to The Bilderberg Group and Big Oil, call political opponents ”racists”, and this while he still is suspected of instigation of genocide in Africa to get to the oil wells. This is all about obeying your true masters, that more and more show that they want chaos...before ”order”?

So have there been a cover-up or is this just ”conspiracy theory”? I am here to tell you from the lion's den that this is now an IMPLEMENTED CONSPIRACY PRACTICE!

Yes it is a cover-up conspiracy and it's labelled with Crime code 291

Last year there was a secret decision made by the National Police Commissioner and his staff to classify, giving secrecy to ALL REPORTS INVOLVING immigration, illegal aliens and refugees – giving these reports the crime code ”291”. So when an alternative blog or more independent politician talked about  a gang rape of a Swedish woman by asylum seekers, the Police did not report it to media at all or was very slow to do this and mostly in a censored form. And it is now legal for the Police to do so.

This also affects the way the Police give a description for suspected criminals, being very vague. And often this information gets another censoring filter in the daily newspapers giving almost useless information to the public while asking them to help solving the crime.

So there is either an anxiousness or a wish to not let the facts get out in the open.

Add to this a lack of Policemen out in the street and the situation becomes worse and worse.

Lack of Police forces

At the same time the National Police Commissioner (the top dog) says that we need to increase the number of policemen with at least 10% due to the refugee situation. Now this National Police Commissioner is not a policeman himself but a politically appointed official, appointed by the Social Democrats who is the biggest party in the current left government, and he has a recorded history of personal hate towards the leader of the Sweden Democrats (the growing conservative populist party) so I don't think he (the National Police Commissioner) is thinking clearly right now.

There has also been a gigantic re-organization of the whole Police force, that has nothing to do with the other events, that has caused anger and disturbance in the Police force. So right now there is a kind of ad hoc - damage control - keep calm at any cost - panicking management of the Swedish Police.


So who is coming to Sweden?

Looking at the current situation with the influx the last years of hundreds of thousands of people we can divide them into different categories:

  1. legal, traditional immigration with Muslims as one of the biggest groups

  2. illegal ”traditional” immigration, often from the same countries as the above category but without any legal reason stay (such as political persecution or being from the same family). These are in 99% of the cases hidden by people from the same originating country and often they are being used as cheap, illegal labor. But there are also many of them involved in crime.

  3. Unaccompanied children that claim they are under 18 years old. Most of them are 20-30 years old and all authorities know this but the law says that if the ”child” says he (it is 90% male ”children”) a minor then he should legally be treated as one. Mostly from Afghanistan and Iran.

  4. Last years wave

    a) asylum seekers (approx 40% of them)

    b) people that avoid the authorities and simply disappear in the country (approx 60%)

  5. Gypsies (Romany), many thousands of them (from Bulgaria and Romania)

  6. North African street kids, mainly from Morocco and Algeria,

Morocco is taking no responsibility for these kids/youngsters and is even using them as a diplomatic tool – if Sweden refrains from acknowledging West Sahara then maybe Morocco will talk about bringing THEIR OWN CITIZENS back home from Sweden.

Organized mass gropings or simply a cultural thing?

Concerning recent ”mass gropings” during the New Year's Eve it was young men from North Africa and Afghanistan who were the perpetrators. Was it organized? This is a very delicate question. If it was organized it raises alot of uncomfortable questions like who did it and why? So many journalists and politicians quickly said that it was not organized and that is was MEN who did it, not a special ethnic background that did it- The problem with too quickly saying that it was not organized is that then the answer to the question ”why?” has to be that it happened spontaneous, and would that be any better? If there is a critical mass of people from North Africa/Afghanistan and Swedish/white women then this phenomenon appears by itself? Well then it really seems like it has to do with ethnicity both of the perpetrators and the victims.

And saying that it above all were men who did it pretending that it could just as well be Swedish men in a group harassing foreign or Swedish women, well then you have a big big burden of proof. There are of course many Swedish men that have done criminal acts with female victims, but not on this level attacking total strangers just because you can.

And some kind of organization has to be behind, but if it is ”locally organized” then we probably have a much bigger problem as it then seems to involve, that's right, culture and ethnicity. And it will change today's public squares to dangerous places especially during bigger occasions.

Disinformation revealed

But there is a big scandal out now as I mentioned in the beginning. During a Summer music festival ”We Are Stockholm” the same thing happened, and it was an increase from last year's (2014) festival when young girls were attacked. The Police, just as the case with Cologne, Germany, lied or mislead the public and called it a calm and safe festival. Even a few big dailies referred from reporting what they now admit they knew back then. They suppressed the truth for political reasons.


And as Mark Watson linked about the central station in Stockholm (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3415477/Swedish-police-warn-Stockholm-s-main-police-station-overrun-migrant-teen-gangs-stealing-groping-girls.html) I can only tell you that I pass there everyday and have spent extra hours there every week for many months now. While it is not a crime scene 24/7 there are incidents everyday that involves young men (not kids) from Afghanistan, Iran and North Africa and they have no respect for the authorities or the Police as they know they are de-facto immune from the strong arm of the law because of legislation and ”political cowardness/correctness”. A big problem is proving that they are 18 years or older even if it is obvious. https://translate.google.se/translate?hl=sv&sl=sv&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dn.se%2Fnyheter%2Fsverige%2Fsvart-att-lagfora-unga-nar-aldern-ar-okand%2F

Many of these foreign men disappear after a while and the Police suspect that they are used as cheap, borderline slavery, labor in Europe. Some are forced to stealing. Probably to pay back the money it cost to get them to Sweden by trafficking/smuggling.

There are also very big problems at public bath with recent rapes of underage Swedish girls by gangs of Afghan and Moroccan men.


One other gang rape in central Stockholm got actually reported, probably as it happened in the area where many left leaning journalists live:


The problems are big even in other cities than Stockholm:


Problems at refugee centers

Also at refugees centers the violence is escalating with two recent incidents, one 22 year old Christian woman that worked there was killed by a 15 year old asylum seeking Somali Muslim boy.:



And the Swedish National Police Commissioner is making people upset by this statement (I think I can understand what he means but the timing is sooo bad):


And at another center ten Policemen had to escape not to get beaten up or killed, if they didn't have a Police dog with them one of the Policemen said that he don't think they would make it out alive.


The paper even states at the bottom of the article that from the beginning the Police told them that nothing had happened at the accommodation but later the truth came out. Crime code 291 anyone?

The backstory here is that a 10-year old boy had been repeatedly raped and the Police tried to catch the bad guy(s):


Well that was a brief look at the situation from a fly on the wall at the Police Headquarters

Somebody's Gotta Go: Depopulation And Climate Change's Agenda

You know what is so strange? Many of these elitists aren't hiding their aims. Many of them have come right out and said a great many things in public and for the record! But most people.... you give them facts rather than just 'opinion' and million dollar PR firm manufactured headlines and you know what you get? The thousand yard stare and an automaton that reaches for the remote to get ready to watch the game! Reality does not compute with them, it's 'uncool'.

Understand now, where I am coming from. I think we need desperately to fix a wide range of environmental problems. But the problems that need to be fixed are toxic waste hitting our water supplies (think Flint), Radioactive waste being dumped at sea (think DOD's nuclear waste programs), Fukushima, the California Natural Gas leak and the emerging crisis of GMO linked agricultural problems and the hidden environmental problems that they are hiding with regards to fracking.  These are not issues the elite want to talk about. They have another narrative they are using for an agenda they have not revealed to you just yet, unless you take the time to listen to what they have said and are planning.

This teaser pdf is quite good and I hope some of you will take some time and read it it. EIR's stuff is top notch, despite what so many have said in the past about it and them. They run counter-narrative to so much of the elites agenda and that is why they are often diss'ed by the powers that be.

You can ignore this agenda if you want to. But know this, the elite for the most part have already made up their minds...

...somebody's gotta go.

A Silent Takeover.

As this past year was coming to an end and a new one was beginning, I have been struck by the copious amounts of money that foreign countries and even companies are pouring into America. Not just her real estate and businesses, but her political leaders and key parts of American infrastructure. Specifically the personal data and private communications of American citizens. I use the world private but I should say social media communications. I find the lesser known, stories buried in rather obscure blogs and sites often are more telling that the headlines we read in the MSM. Did you know that the Saudi's are paying a San Francisco 'Big Data' company $40,000 a month for strategic advice and real time monitoring of Social Media? The name of  the company is Zignal Labs.

Listen folks, this surveillance stuff is really big business. They monitor who reads what, where,  how many times and who they share it with in real time. I often hear apologists out there talking about NSA spying as though it's about protecting the people. These high tech firms are making a killing spying on us, not for the NSA, not for American security, but for terrorist supporting governments like the Saudi's who now, with all of these new provisions in CISA, will have access to the private data of 320 million Americans, despite what Congress tell us about 'protections'. So CISA wasn't about the NSA and spying. Rather, it was about the continued material  support to terrorism, that our leaders have been engaged in secretly far away from the MSM. 

These are top lobbying firms who engage in spin management and damage control for the world's top terrorist supporting nation in the world. More here and any good search engine will give you more data on this than you can read in a lifetime.

Foreign Agent Registration Act Form (5/4/15) (copy here)

There are many of these companies and groups who do the Saudi's bidding for a fat fee. There is the above Qorvis, there is Hogan Lovells, Squire Patton Boggs, and Pillsbury Winthrop, Shaw and Pittman not to mention all of those defense firms who sell billions of dollars of high tech military equipment to the Saudi's. They have worked hard to get their people into the top positions into the US intelligence Community as well. The problem is that these days, foreign governments are calling the shots on who gets to sit at key places in Washington. The American people don't have a say anymore. They  don't know and have placed their blind and child like trust in a system that more and more is being purchased by their enemies. Their media is being strongly influenced by the very people who were instrumental in bringing down the Twin Towers.

But it's not just the Saudi's. How many of you have been watching the standoff in Oregon? I have not covered it here yet because I was working on my Ukraine and Repentance pieces. But the topic goes right to the question at hand. These ranchers who are using armed force against the Government (something I cannot and will not support)  are protesting something that they feel strongly about. That being the fact that the Federal  Government is continually encroaching on wildlands and endangering ranchers and farmers. These guys mostly live on Federal lands. and there are numerous and very serious issues they are dealing with. In California, the Government owns 45.8% of all land. In Nevada, where the Bundy Standoff occurred, they own 84.9% of all land, according to Congress

Water rights, environmental issues, the issues run the gamut. Ranchers, as you know in the Bundy stand off, were being forced to move to make way for a Chinese owned wind farm. What I can tell you about that is what you already know, that Reid and one of his henchman over at BLM (see blue in map a above) to make way for the Farm.

Reid and China... what can I say? These are issues that have long been talked about. But what you may not be aware of is another part of the story that our leaders have been quietly talking about. What is that, you might ask? Well, its buried deep in the CRS report I linked to above.

 Here is what is in there.

Federal Land Ownership: Overview and Data

For those of you looking for the above referenced 2013 report, you can find it here. But it's large so I will give you the reference spread sheet on page 491 of that document.


Now perhaps you understand why this standoff, the Bundy standoff and the others that will follow is a little more than about some 'angry white guys' with guns. There are deeper issues here that even the Ranchers may not know about. America needs money and right now, she is getting some of it, though the Financial machinery in DC has been very mum about its source. The Daily Treasury statement was 'all better now' once the House passed its omnibus Budget in December.

So we now have money to pay for the day to day operations of our government.

No dear readers, our long term problems are even more severe than ever as the outlays for new military equipment make plain.

  - CRS

FYI, DOD Is to buy Fewer F-35's

You can scan the web and see the same pattern. Fewer number of big budget items. The simple fact is, as I explained to all to all of you last fall is that America is rapidly reaching 'peak debt' and with each successive year is just going to have to learn to live within its means. We dear readers, despite whatever lies they tell you on TV, have only just begun to feel the pinch. (I have been talking about these issues - but that is for insiders only!)

Will America sell off federal lands to pay for her debts? I know that this is what the Chinese have been wanting, and one of the reasons why that particular US Senator had his agents in the BLS and at least one of the reasons he got a bruising 'visit' (and was hospitalized after it) not so long ago. The President is not predisposed to sell, at least not this one at this time. But I would venture to guess that they are lining the pockets of political candidates right now, hoping to change that decision in order to gain direct access to US land in the not too distant future.

But on the Economic front, there are some very big things happening. China is working on their Gold backed Currency. In fact, she just announced that foreign banks are to participate in the new Yuan Denominated Gold Benchmark or they will face curbs. This has the potential of shifting the Gold pricing power away from London and moving it to Shanghai. This is one to watch because China clearly is determined to unhook her economy from US/Western dominance and wants to back her currency with Gold. This has the potential to be a real a game changer if they can pull it off and if you want my guess, this is why China's markets are going haywire. Someone is 'explaining' to China that they don't like the idea in the language of 21st century geopolitics. This is the economic brand of 'unrestricted warfare'.

But the damage could not be worse for China, as ZH points out in this piece. But it's having a horrible effect in Latin America, The US, and Europe.

What do these things mean for us?

Again brothers, I do not want to spread fear, but my thinking goes like this.

Our national political and economic leadership are in the process of being completely captured by foreign interests. I know this and others in Congress know this. I think I mentioned this before, but I remember listening to one of our Congressman on CSPAN who alluded to this very thing, that the American people just did 'not have fighting chance', was the phrase he used as he was referring to the inflows of foreign money into our political system. Even the new speaker in his acceptance speech alluded to the fact that Congress was broken. DC is rapidly becoming Treason, Inc.

The White house is just as broken. The Supreme Court is probably in the worst shape of all three branches of government, where a hefty 'speakers fee' or crooked book deal or mulit-million dollar piece of  overseas real estate placed carefully in a trust controlled by a Justice has bought 'influenced' many a ruling before it. You cannot keep your nation secure with leaders like this. It's impossible. This is why you are seeing things like this.

Our nation has got a ton of troubles. But brothers, I don't want any of you to be in fear.

We as Christians must accept that America has made her choice and that we as Christians must be ready to deal with the spiritual headwinds that will surely come as these new nations begin more and more to set and dictate policy in DC. I wish I could tell you that a letter to Congress or changing political parties in DC will bring change. It won't. The rot is too deep, even the 'watchers' who should be marking and dealing with corruption inside of the American establishment appear more and more to have gone over either to slumber, impotence, collusion/treason or corruption.

So let us pray for the saints everywhere, those who are facing firey trials and those like us whose trials lie yet ahead.  I will quote the man who started the Southwest Radio Church brothers, for your encouragement today.

These are all interesting links. This is the future, make no mistake about that one folks. This stuff is much, much further along that these news articles are letting on. As our world's population increases, you are going to see something our elite have been planning since the days of Adolph Hitler. The creation of a super race of men. Hitler had the Lebensborn program. But at the same time they were making this new race of men, they had to get rid of those individuals who are deemed Racially inferior. How are they going to do it... and get away with it. FYI, Hitlers 'final solution' was not generally known to Germans. It was one of the highest state secrets. Those of you who can, should take some time out and watch the movie 'Conspiracy', with Kenneth Branaugh. It was merely a well acted, historically accurate depiction of how the Nazi's did it and why. This movie was merely a re-enactment of the planning meeting. It will send cold shivers down your spine far better than any horror movie Hollywood can come up with.

Let the Ebola virus in Africa be your guide. The answer will be in vaccines. This was how they  got it to spread there. It was a drug trial contracted out of the DOD, all legal so no matter how many people died, they could not be tried for a crime. The next trend being pushed by your major Big Pharma firms is for mandatory vaccines here in the US. It's already the law in California. Guardasil? What this vaccine is showing itself more and more to be is a way to interfere with a woman's reproductive system.

Now for this exercise, I ask you to take off your own personal morality hat and start to think like a racist elitist who hates anything non-Ayran. How would you go about getting rid of the 'racially inferior' in such a way that they never figure out that they were targeted for genocide? Use your head now not your heart, turn off your morality switch for this mental exercise and think like a guy who thinks satanism is what the world needs right now and every Christmas tree should have a swastika on top of it around the winter solstice.

Let me tell you which way the wind is blowing. I see mandatory vaccines coming to most if not all states. There is a purely economic, rather than eugenic reason for it, you can read in insider spill the beans on this here. It gives the vaccine makers a permanent revenue stream taken right out of the State Treasury.  By promoting fear, the vaccine makers can make a 'killing'. Look, many of you don't know that the Supreme Court has immunized these companies from any liability. Spin it anyway you want to - Genocide via vaccines is now 'legal'. Where did most of America's major drug makers come from? Do some research on your own. The answer is there for any thinking person to see. Many of today's top drug firms are merely 'offspring' of Hitler's massive Drug-Chemical combine, IG Farben.

Bayer: A History

Again, put on your 'evil' hat. You don't like the 'racially inferior' and you want to get rid of them. In an age where they can splice and even target genes and DNA, how long do you think it will be before they develop a vaccine that is harmless to one group and is either deadly to another or causes very expensive and debilitating illnesses. Or perhaps they hit the bulls eye and finds one that just significantly reduces lifespans in such a way that people never are able to connect up the vaccine with the shrinking lifespan of Blacks, or Jews or Native Americans. I have already shown you links on the long and perverse history of American medical experimentation on Blacks and Native Americans.

Again, getting away with it is imperative so it must be done in a way that causes little or no outcry that can be quickly doused with million dollar PR campaign. The money has probably already been set aside for it. Look, many of you think I am talking out of my backside. Well how many of you are aware if what happened just a couple of days ago in Ukraine at a US lab there? Note that this virus is immune to ALL medicinces. What kind of demonic work is this nation engaged in?

I give you this exercise not to scare you, but to show you how these things work. These guys plan three, four steps down the road, they know what they are planning and know exactly how you will react. They have that all  factored in and work to mitigate and neutralize your ability to react, legally, politically and other ways. They plan decades in advance. They have the money and can afford to. They know most people are too busy, too distracted or just plain too dumb to figure this out until they get sick, really sick and want to know why the doctor just gave them the 'six-months-to-a-year left to live' speech and why that speech is being read almost exclusively to Blacks, Jews and Native Americans while they lay in a hospital bleeding from every orifice in their bodies.

Brothers, no one is going to or is physiologically capable of seeing this coming with their head firmly planted in the part of the body meant for sitting on.

But for you out there who know your God and obey his word - did he not tell you to watch? Go and re-read what Christ said about the last days about diseases and new kinds of warfare and that ethnic group (translated nations in the KJV) would rise against ethnic group and how he told is the absolute necessity of watching in these times. He did not mean the NFL.

So keep your eyes on this one. One way or another they are going to do all in their power to create their supermen and get rid of the 'racially inferior'.

Dear readers, I don't expect too many people to really understand what this really means to them - particularly those who it will effect most. Most have been too brainwashed and taught that thinking for oneself and that any significant cerebral activity is not in keeping with being 'cool' and part of ones racial group.

But for those of you who want to understand what you are up against and to survive it, you are going to have to begin to think like a grown, thinking man and not like a sheep. Men who think and act like men may have a fighting chance and surviving this. Men who think like sheep won't.

Sheep get sheered, just before they get slaughtered.

Did you know that a new Gene splicing technology has taken the world by storm?

New Gene Splicing Technique Has Take World By Storm

The new gene-editing technique CRISPR (see Box) [1] has taken the world by storm. It enables geneticists to disable or change the sequence of specific genes in the genome of practically all animals including humans faster, more efficiently than ever before... - Institute For Science And Technology

I hope you get a chance to look this one over. It talks about the first genetically modified human 'created' using this technology.

All of this hearkens back to the past and the dream of Hitler.

This is the future brothers and I would be remiss to tell you that this is the exactly same thing the Nazi's tried back in their day. They wanted to create a Superman. So they crated the Lebensborn program.

This is the same basic concept you need to understand as we move forward. Now keep this fact in mind, they will try and find an issue a 'good fact' reason to sell this to the public, that is how they release these things, they have to make up and fabricate a 'good' reason why they are doing these things, and hide the real one. Right now, one of the main reasons is to create supermen for military purposes.

This new idea is also, if you read the original entry, part of the Chinese mindset. Simply put, China has very much bought into much of the Nazi ideology. From its security services to its form of government (hawk right militant repressive-ism), centralized control of all things, etc., that is why you see them doing many of the things that the US cannot do, at least officially. But know this - there are many private labs across the nation that are not under any kind of oversight. Private money is doing private things that no one knows about but those who pay the bills.

Those of you who want a large pdf file on this, I created one from Wikipedia on the program and many of the key people. It's always a good idea to do that from time to time. Why? When the political winds blow in one direction, the forces who really run Wikipedia will remove important things from articles like this.

For those of you who never read it, I talk a bit about this in this update I did a few years ago.

All of this new science, its crucial to understand, not what they say they are going to do with it, but who is behind the research, because they will be the ones who determine who and how this new technology will be used.

So, when you see guys like Dr. Horowitz who has a name and the expertise telling you about the evil that they are doing out there, listen to him. He has got a chance to talk to and interface with some of the power brokers in this realm

I have a video here I have had on my HD for years, It's really big so it will take some time to download. Take some time out, and watch it. (video is for insiders, but a talk on the same subject can be found along the left hand column of this page).

Brothers, these things that the lost world is not going to see coming. It is for the most part, not been given for them to see.

No one wants to see this because this ramifications are just too dark. But let me let you in on a secret.

Supreme Court Justices' Scalia's recent Affirmative Action Comments? He is merely acting as a cipher for another Justice, who owes his seat to a key power- player in the New Reich. I told you years ago they were going to gut it, and unless people talk to Scalia, they are going to do just that. Scalia's comments were not only about ending the program, he all but insinuated that Black folks were subhuman with his comments. Well, that was less about Scalia's views as it was about another Justice's views.

Race, genetics and who gets to live and who has to go are going to be issues that are discussed in power centers as we move more and more through the first century of the Third Millenium AD.

This is a heads up to all of you. Keep your eyes on these issues. There is a power behind this that transcends even men and their wicked plans. There is a deep spiritual dimension to this.

Remember what the Prophet Daniel said. I always think on it when I wonder why it's so hard for so many people to see what is happening when it comes to the times we are in and what it means to the people of God, the true house of Israel, each and every one who has been born into the kingdom of God.

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.
(Dan 12:10)

May God grant that readers here understand.

Flint Michigan Water Poisoned With Led

This should not be surprising to anyone, that this is a mostly Black city.
The problem is led poisoning and it has apparently been happening since 2014.

What does it look like? Here is Wikipedia's entry on it.

It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Symptoms include abdominal pain, confusion, headache, anemia, irritability, and in severe cases seizures, coma, and death.

 - Wikipedia

This is not some isolated thing. The poisoning of Black America is a long tradition. Go here, and to get the demographics go here. Go and look for a place where there is a large Black Population and if you dig, you will find the same pattern of toxic towns - primarily Black and low income people. Go and look at what we see above as symptoms.

This is also known as Environmental racism.

It's not just genetics and this is not a coincidence. Someone want's the Black man gone.

Hosea Part V

When we left off last, God was giving Israel wonderful promises about her future once she had learned the basics of faithfulness. Hosea's wife and the living parable that his marriage became, was ultimately about the issue of faithfulness. Gomer, Hosea's wife was unfaithful to Hosea, just like Israel was to God.

Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine. So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley: And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.
(Hos 3:1-3)

This passage continues on with the same basic theme of marital unfaithfulness, but this time the Prophet is given a new command. One of the problems though with the book of Hosea, I think it fair to say is that it's condition (from a translation standpoint) is very poor and there are some places that according to some authors the translators had to to a degree 'make do' with certain portions that were not clear. It is indeed the oldest of the books of the Minor prophets. So there are places at least according to some of the commentaries I have read, that the translators had to some problems. So there are times and passages that are not always as clear as in the books of the later minor prophets. I ask that you keep that in mind as we go through the book.

Hosea was told to go and love a woman who was making love with her friend, that is, another person who was not her husband. It was customary in those days for whores to have a 'favorite' who took care of them in a special way. This may be the sense that Hosea is trying to convey. This woman had a favorite lover and and by prophetic analogy, Hosea is referring to the idols that Israel worshiped; this other god she adored and showed great love towards. Again, God's relationship to Israel was played out in the prophets marriage.

So the prophet went and bought his wife and the price of it was mentioned. The amount is a matter of some speculation. It is important only insofar as what the price represents. K&D thinks the amount is indicative of purchasing a slave as it was possible to buy one in both money and grain. Here is what they say.

The price generally, for which the prophet obtained the wife, was probably intended to indicate the servile condition out of which Jehovah purchased Israel to be His people; and the circumstance that the prophet gave no more for the wife than the amount at which a slave could be obtained, according to Ecc. 21:32 and Zec_11:12, and that this amount was not even paid in money, but half of it in barley - a kind of food so generally despised throughout antiquity (vile hordeum; see at Num_5:15) - was intended to depict still more strikingly the deeply depressed condition of the woman. The price paid, moreover, is not to be regarded as purchase money, for which the wife was obtained from her parents; for it cannot be shown that the custom of purchasing a bride from her parents had any existence among the Israelites (see my Bibl. Archäologie, ii. §109, 1). It was rather the marriage present (mōhar), which a bridegroom gave, not to the parents, but to the bride herself, as soon as her consent had been obtained. If, therefore, the woman was satisfied with fifteen shekels and fifteen ephahs of barley, she must have been in a state of very deep distress.
K&D commentary

You know, I have often heard people don't like to read Bible commentaries. I agree that many of the modern ones leave very much to be desired. But many of the older ones are very good and bring passages that one would ordinarily skip over into much better focus. Hosea after making this transaction that results in retrieving this woman. He then told her not to play the harlot any longer. Stay with her husband and do right. Hosea was essentially making an agreement, a 'covenant' with this woman and wanted her to remain faithful to him. Just as the Lord wanted to do with his people.

For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince,
and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod,
and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return,
and seek the LORD their God, and David their king;
and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.

(Hos 3:4-5)

This passage is clearly designed to show that Israel was going to be scattered. They would not have any Civil authority or any rulers not even any of their idols. The reference to the Ephod was a reference to the religion of the Lord and it was part of the dress of the priests. The Teraphim was, according to Strong's, a family idol (H8655). According to K&D, this was the family idol that was supposed to bring world prosperity.

 The teraphim were Penates, which were worshipped as the givers of earthly prosperity, and also as oracular deities who revealed future events. K&D

They were essentially the family god's or god's of the storeroom. This later became part of the cult of Vesta (where the Romans got 'Vestal Virgins'). This was originally a personal cult that later, in Roman times developed into the state religion. Those of you who want more on this can find it here.

What exactly is the prophet trying to convey? Well most commentators see this as being a reference to the long exile of Israel from their land. They cite the fact that this was the case for 1900 years. Here we must remember to separate Israel from Judah and not make the mistake that Hosea's message was meant for the Southern Kingdom. For the most part, it was not.

Israel would also not have a sacrifice. This is probably due to the fact that the Priests would not offer them in a strange land while they were in exile. All of these are symbols of nationhood unique to Israel and God was going to take them away. It is as though he wanted to let them know that their existence as a people, nation and race were due to him and he was taking away that identity at least for the time being -  'many days'.

It was only after this exilic ordeal that Israel would return and then seek the Lord and their Messiah. This passage needs to be understood in its total eschatological sense and we must not try and impute a meaning that is not clear in the passage. This clearly is one that takes place in the 'latter days' and it is one when Israel is not only in their land, but also seeks and acknowledges their Messiah. In that day they will fear, revere and respect the Lord. Barnes notes that this seeking is intense and means a diligent search. Here is the Hebrew world for 'seek'.

A primitive root; to search out (by any method; specifically in worship or prayer); by implication to strive after: - ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure, (make) request, require, seek (for).

We are not talking about a casual seeking. But a people who are doing all in their power to get themselves right with God. The sense here is the same is in found in the book of Luke. Here is how Jesus used this theme and I think it directly relates to this whole idea of Israel's willingness at the time of Christ's first advent to seek God and later how they will seek him just before his second. Here is what the Lord said.

Strive to enter in by the narrow door: for many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, open to us; and he shall answer and say to you, I know you not whence ye are; then shall ye begin to say, We did eat and drink in thy presence, and thou didst teach in our streets; and he shall say, I tell you, I know not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and yourselves cast forth without. And they shall come from the east and west, and from the north and south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And behold, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last.
(Luk 13:24-30)

Christ is telling that generation to strive, not just seek to get into the Kingdom, that those who just seek and don't put some real effort into it, are not likely to get in. So this is a key teaching and Israel is only saved in the latter day after she bâqash the Lord with all their hearts.

The Lord is giving his people a view as to what would be required of them before any genuine reconciliation with him was to come to pass.

Repentance From Dead Works

From time to time I have done and will continue to do some basic Christian doctrine pieces. Today, sound doctrine is just not being taught in so many of the Churches in the west. People come to Church to really find God and come away bitterly disappointed with the spiritually dead message that is so often preached from the pulpit. The problem is not that God is not there or does not hear,  but that we as men must come to God on his, not our terms. We cannot make up our own imaginary Jesus and expect that kind of religion to work for us. No. Brothers, God has painstakingly laid out our we must come to him of we are to really come to know him. This is the very first and most important step in that process. 

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
(Heb 6:1-6)


The author of the book of Hebrews, whom many think was Paul wants to move on from Spiritual milk, onto more meaty spiritual subjects. While I will not spend a great deal of time on the authorship of this work I will say that I believe that it was probably written by Paul or by someone who sat closely under his tutelage. The author had a very strong knowledge of Hebrew religion and customs (as Paul who was Pharisee was) and clearly was in a position of authority. I tend to think this was written in the early days of his ministry as so much of it hearkens back to the Jewish religion, of which Paul had recently come out of after his conversion. Additional evidence? Try this.

Compare Heb_1:2 with Col_1:15 and Heb_5:12 with 1Co_3:1 and Heb_12:1 with 1Co_9:24 and Heb_13:7 with 1Th_5:11, and Heb_13:9 with Eph_4:14 and Heb_13:18 with 2Co_1:12 and Heb_13:20 with Rom_15:13 and many other places; and also from the order and method of it, first treating of doctrines, and then proceeding to practical exhortations, which is the common form of Paul's epistles: John Gill

Paul's point here in this epistle is basically this. The Hebrew believers were in danger of apostatizing and turning their backs on Christ. The author of this Epistle which we will assume is Paul from here on, is warning them against it.

But the purpose of this piece is not to talk so much about apostasy but the doctrine of repentance. Yes, this is basic Christian doctrine but one I think needs to be talked about in our world today, especially to new Christians who may be falling under pastors who are soft peddling this most important aspect of the gospel and of obtaining God's mercy.

It's always popular to talk of mercy. People need to know that the God of Abraham, Issac, Jacob and Joseph is most merciful. But God's mercy - his divine mercy is as with most things with God, is conditional. God's condition for mercy can be summed up with these basic concepts and conditions

Mercy is dependent on one's acknowledgment of wrongdoing (sin)

Mercy is dependent on ones acknowledgment of God as forgiver of sin

Mercy is dependent on ones willingness to change the sinful behavior

Mercy is dependent on ones faith in God's justice and love of the sinner.

The key here that is often soft-peddled is the thing that is required of us that can be most difficult depending on the person and his or her particular sin. The simple fact is, for the most part, people love their sin. Sure people like to get upset about the sins, crimes and misdeeds of others. But when it comes to that kind of spiritual analysis that is directed at others, we often fail to look at ourselves. You who point out the sins of the adulterer, are you a deadbeat? You who are upset about a murder, do you lie? You hate thieves - do you backbite? This is one of the reasons why God does not like us to judge others. Yes, judge the sin itself, but not the sinner.

This too is one of the many errors of pseudo Christianity. It takes the saying that says 'judge not' to mean (or try and insinuate) that there is no right and wrong, when that is the exact opposite of the message of the Old testament, the prophets, Christ and his Apostles. No, the basic idea here is that we are not to judge, but be judged by God. We are too full of our own faults to correctly be the judge of another's. Granted those in positions of authority within the Church must from time to time deal with sin within the congregation as Paul did so many times, but that is a very different matter than what Christ was teaching us during his ministry.

I think what one needs to keep in mind is that the entire plan of salvation boils down to two things God desires. That man is reconciled to his maker and God and that can only happen when the obstacle to that reconciliation is removed. What is that obstacle? Sin.

Brothers, it is wonderful to talk of mercy and God's love for us. God is most merciful and believe me he knows our faults and weaknesses. He is not some ogre in the sky just waiting to zap us when we sin. This is the age of grace. Grace is space that God gives us all to acknowledge him, return to him, seek his face and turn from our wicked ways so that we may be forgiven and reconciled to our creator.

Brothers, I have always found this simple truth about the gospel message to be most reassuring. It is an utterly simple and direct message. It is often spun into negativity (turn or burn!) or ultra positivity (mercy but no need for repentance). But in the gospel message that saves souls, mercy is present when acknowledgment and repentance are within the heart of the penitent.

God is most merciful to those who are truly sorry for their sins and have made a decision to cease sinning. For those of you with hangups, bad habits God is even more merciful. God is there for us and Christ as our High Priest is ready to make intercession for us before the God.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
(Heb 4:14-16)

When Christ was engaged in his ministry, he sent his apostles out to preach and this was a key foundation of their message. It was to repent. Christ as well was not soft peddling this key factor in obtaining salvation. Here is what he said.

There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
(Luk 13:1-5)

And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
(Mar 6:12)

This passage is often ignored, but if you stop and really understand what Christ is saying, it is more profound than many give it credit for. Evangelicals are often looking at this and that disaster as a 'judgment from God'. A tornado, a flood, a fire or a war; too often we look upon these things as judgment for some collective sin. This is usually not the case. This was clearly the thinking that was going on in the minds of those who were asking the Lord of these things back in those days. Christ was direct. He was telling them, if I can paraphrase it, that what they saw in those disasters was the fate of all sinners and that those who died in those disasters just got it first, to take a lesson from it and repent.

The problem then as now is that people don't want to repent. They want to continue on doing just what they have been doing and the danger here is that people think that God's lack of negative reaction to their evil deeds is indifference or worse, approval. Let none of us take God's grace for granted. God's forbearance is not indifference to sin, it's grace and space to repent.

Think of how the prophet Ezekiel had to plead with Israel on behalf of the Lord.

Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel,
every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD.
Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions;
so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
Cast away from you all your transgressions,
whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new
heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die,
O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death
of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore
turn yourselves, and live ye.
(Eze 18:30-32)

Brothers, we all need to keep what the prophet here says foremost in our minds. God will judge us all according to our works. God is more than willing to forgive sin and transgression, in fact, he is most anxious to do so. But that willingness only comes when people acknowledge their wrongdoing and repent of it.

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

(Act 3:19-20)

So was the message preached right after Pentecost, shortly after the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles and disciples.

Brothers, let us have the deepest suspicion of those who preach mercy and love without the need for a fundamental change in behavior and a relationship with God, though the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Think about it this way – what good is mercy to an ISIS commander when after he sits in Church, he goes out to hack up some more Christians and then goes to Church the following Sunday and chops off even some more heads on Monday? God is looking for a FUNDAMENTAL change in behavior, not a new ritual to make us feel good while steeped in wickedness.

A person who is truly penitent will feel sorrow for past sins and will make every effort to cease with the evil behavior. Here is how Albert Barnes sums up Repentance

Repentance implies sorrow for past offences 2Co_7:10; a deep sense of the evil of sin as committed against God Psa_51:4; and a full purpose to turn from transgression and to lead a holy life. A true penitent has sorrow for sin, not only because it is ruinous to his soul, but chiefly because it is an offence against God, and is that abominable thing which he hates, Jer_44:4. It is produced by seeing the great danger and misery to which it exposes us; by seeing the justice and holiness of God Job_42:6; and by seeing that our sins have been committed against Christ, and were the cause of his death, Zec_12:10; Luk_22:61-62. There are two words in the New Testament translated “repentance,” one of which denotes a change of mind, or a reformation of life; and the other, sorrow or regret that sin has been committed. The word used here is the former, calling the Jews to a change of life, or a reformation of conduct. In the time of John, the nation had become extremely wicked and corrupt, perhaps more so than at any preceding period. Hence, both he and Christ began their ministry by calling the nation to repentanceAlbert Barnes

I think the best way to look at this is to think about it like being on a road. If one continues on that road they are lead to sin and death. If one does not want to go there, they must change direction. Move from the evil to the good, from the lie to the truth, from hate to love and from the devil to God. This is the essence of repentance. It's not instant sinless perfection, which in our bodies is neigh unto being unattainable. Rather, it is that fundamental change in outlook, behavior, and direction that leads a person from the road to sin and death, to the road that leads to eternal salvation in Christ Jesus. Brothers, don't get down if you fall, make mistakes - there are no perfect Christians. Not one! So don't get discouraged. This is not a sprint, its a marathon and the only thing you have to do your very best and  finish it.

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
(Mat 10:22)

I should not have to talk about this. Every true Christian is more than aware of these facts. I post this because there are so many pastors and Christian leaders who are soft peddling mercy and love without giving them the other part of the story. God wants us to change our ways and give him our trust and our hearts.

Is this not the choice the Apostle Peter gave to Simon in the NT who wanted the power of the Holy Ghost and was willing to bribe Peter for it.

Repent therefore of this thy wickedness,
and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness,
and in the bond of iniquity.
(Act 8:22-23)

What Simon suggested was a grave sin and Peter made it plain to him. The path that Peter laid out was plain and simple. It was to repent.

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
(Act 17:29-31)

Yes, brothers, the living God commands all men everywhere to repent of their sins and evils. Turn to God who will show overflowing mercy to the penitent sinner. Mercy is almost always there when a soul wants to change his or her ways. God is ready to extend the hand of fellowship. But the key has been, is and always will be the need for repentance.

The two go hand and hand. If you want God's mercy, you must come to him humbly, on bended knees, acknowledge your wrongdoing and work very hard not to offend the Lord again.

But if you fall or make a mistake again, God is not going to 'zap' you. He knows that we are but men, flesh and blood and has no desire to cause you to be discouraged or downcast. God wants us to know that there is plenty of mercy available at the mercy seat.

Brother, let us get a full understanding of God's mercy the need for repentance and the hope that we have in Christ as our High Priest and Mediator before the father.

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
(Heb 9:14-15)

Jan 2016

My Prayer for 2016
Watson's Web has been here since February of 2000. As I enter my 16th year of writing, I have always felt heartfelt thanks and love towards those who have come by here and shown their love and faithfulness to this humble work. Watson's Web is still here with no plans to go anywhere and will still keep the bulk of my work and analysis behind the password wall. There has been considerable danger associated with blogging in public. Many bad people are looking for ways to shut down voices they don't agree with, and not all of them emanate from the US.

While I may sound a little hard edged sometimes, it is not done out of hatred, but out of a genuine concern for others and the spiritual state of Western Christendom. But this I know, God loves us all and wants us to learn to walk in a way that is no longer contrary to God, righteousness, or peace. 

My prayer for 2016 is that our world and its leaders will discover that peace is better than war, and long lasting prosperity can be found in seeking peace. That we should show respect to those we differ with, seeking common ground in the key issues facing our world and remember that we all have to share this ball of dirt that circles the sun. We Americans in particular must learn that the machismo, violence and arrogance of the past must give way to a more conciliatory approach to the world and its governments. That together solutions that put people before profits and peace before anger and human life before defense contracts must be found to so many of the world's troubles. From the refugee crisis in Syria, to the proxy war in Ukraine; to lesser known  but even more devastating crisis that are off of our headlines. Like the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima, that is killing massive amounts of sea life all over the pacific Ocean; to the new ecological  disaster now taking place in California that few were talking about until now.  Ecological problems, demographic problems, water problems, Organized crime problems, corruption problems.... Our world has its share of them and it's time that our leaders put on their 'grown-up pants' and begin to act like adults with a sense of Humanity and as part of God's creation, rather than bullies and thieves who prey on the weak for a few dollars more in their swollen bank accounts.

Yes, I pray for peace because I follow after the Prince of peace, Jesus Christ. I am neither ashamed nor afraid to say so. Christ said that Peacemakers were blessed and it is that very same Jesus Christ I seek to be blessed by, by doing just that. Seeking peace rather than war, conciliation rather than conflict, hope rather despair and love rather than hate. These Christian views have made me some powerful enemies. But a good man can be determined by the enemies who turn on him and the friends he has chosen and who choose him.

Yet I know that in our world such peaceful sentiments when dealing with governments need to be backed up with strength. I am not naive. But too often our leaders have sought conflict and destabilization rather than peace and stability. It is my prayer that this mindset begins a major sea change for the rest of this and each and every succeeding Presidential administration. That the Vision of men like Kennedy can be more of a realty for American foreign policy - that we seek peace, real peace and move our nation towards that goal for all men who are willing to take a chance as well and work for it.

My desire for peace is not, as many may think, incompatible with my prophetic Christian world view. That view has  been twisted by too many on the Right who have abused the Gospel for evil and warlike ends. I am not one of them. Nor do I think that we Christians should only help one another. I think of the parable good Samaritan who did not ask the wounded victim of robbers his religious affiliation, is a perfect example. He just helped. He did not put him to an ecumenical council or rack him and make him renounce his non-Christian religious beliefs. No, he just aided the man and paid the bill at the inn where he recovered.

And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him,
and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain
 priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him,
and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was:
and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host,
and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again,
I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
(Luk 10:30-37)

I note how Christ showed the different reactions of religious people to the misfortune of this man (Levites and Priests were the religious order of Christ's time). Yet, it was a 'despised' Samaritan who did the right thing. The person who belonged to group everyone hated and despised.

Brothers, God is watching how we as a nation and we as individual people treat the less fortunate and how we treat our neighbor.

The highest rung on the ladder of statecraft is to bring in lasting peace where there is war. I hope and pray that our leaders learn the lesson that Christ taught and seeks peace and brings assistance to so many of the world's people who are in need.

Such a prayer may make a 'bad Christian' to many in the west, but it won't to the Prince of peace who said...

... go and do thou likewise.

Ukraine: A Way Out
Many people have forgotten about the Crisis in Ukraine in light of what is happening in Syria. They think it is gone away and that it does not effect us here in the US. Only a few have bothered to look at what those in positions of leadership and in the know are saying. That for a while, we were as close to Nuclear War as we ever had been since the Cold War.

Unless some kind of way out can be found and the West begins to take Russia's genuine security concerns seriously this crisis can only lead to some kind of armed conflict. Russia's nuclear arsenal is most formidable and if she is forced to use them, you and I will never know it happened. Putin has made it abundantly clear, that if backed into a corner, he will use them.

Russia and Ukraine were my forte. They are subjects I know and have known quite a bit about. This paper is written in the hopes that someone somewhere who has not lost their minds to the insanity that has characterized US policy in Ukraine (overthrowing a democratically elected government to replace it with racists and Nazi's) and who seek to prevent what can easily be prevented, provided a modicum of reality and respect are included in their recipe for future policy, can work with the Russians and Europeans and come up with a solution that all can live with.

This 20 page paper (pdf and odt) deals with the crisis in Ukraine and some of the issues that will have to be dealt with if there is ever to be a return to any kind of normalcy and peace in Ukraine and with Russia.

It is my hope that this paper will be of use to some in policy circles.

An Open Letter To Senator Mikulski And The Intelligence Oversight Committee.

I am writing to you to share with me some concerns I have with the way I have been abused by members of the US intelligence community. Because of the open nature of this letter, I will have to talk around some issues, but those on the committee will fully understand what and who specifically I am talking about as I suspect many of the issues surrounding a long running federal investigation into me and my work have probably in some shape or form already come before your committee.

A few years ago, I was contacted by a long time CIA officer (formerly a Senior Executive there under the Panetta tenure) and former friend and was made aware that my name had been included with the names of several others to be used by an undercover CIA operative who would be unable to contact anyone even remotely associated with the US government, while undercover. This person was to operate in a highly sensitive and politically dangerous situation overseas. My site and name were give to him so that when it was time for him to come home, I could let others know and arrangements could be made to make that happen.

First of all, I did not really want to become involved in this. My work here at my site is not to really get involved in those kinds of things and my permission was not asked for before my name went on that list.

This angered me at the time, as for many years, I told this person time and again I did not want my name appearing anywhere at his place of employment as I did not and do not trust them. My professional contact with most of the CIA's officers in the past (and there have been a few) have shown them to be some of the worst kinds of rather ardent racists. I just did not want to deal with that place on that level ever again. This CIA officer did not respect my wishes and not only used my name liberally, he put my name as a point of contact on this very sensitive operation. I was made aware of what this soon to be operation as well as the what operative/person/entity was going to do in the broadest of terms many months before and in less clear terms, the purpose of it. Having worked in the intel business for over a decade, I know the deal and did not want to leave anyone 'hanging in the wind', so to speak. So I was going to reluctantly cooperate.

For the record, I kept my mouth shut during the time his operation was underway (and still have though I know it is winding down) but was not sure who this person was if and when he contacted me. He may have and he may not have done so. I don't know for sure. There is one person I suspected but the simple fact was, when I did email this person, within hours my VPNs and Internet connection went bonkers and my 'unconventional' DNS server went down and the notification that said  on their site that they had never been served with a warrant, was taken down just a few days later. In short, all manner of strange and evil things began to happen whenever I mailed this person.

I had no way of knowing who this person was for sure by email under those circumstances, though I could follow his actions via the news. [FYI others who will read this, real names are never used in this business]. But more importantly as a direct result of my attempts to help with this covert operation, I came under a full fledged investigation by the DOD who later became aware of this CIA operation and wanted to do all in its power to undermine it. Other federal agencies also became involved in investigating me. The surveillance was near total with a full team operating out of one of the nearby apartments. Even my neighbors were co-opted, destroying my reputation here where I live. They all probably now think I brew Meth or molest kids or something.

I had people (not neighbors) constantly passing by my home and peering in my windows and at least one home invasion, though I am 90% certain there were others as well. Of course a full computer scan of my laptop that could not be turned off  - initiated by the insertion of a personal USB drive into it.

I also came under what amounted to near harassment in many of the local places I frequent, to my local restaurant and gym. It became very annoying. At first I thought this was about Jeffery Sterling who once frequented by site. But later I found it this was about this other operation.

What I have come to suspect Senator is goes like this.

What I know is that - I do have some powerful folks within the Intelligence community who really hate what I do here and have threatened me through intermediaries. I know who they are. I have long known it and known that they are always looking to find ways of setting me up. They have tried it many times in the past. They don't like Black folks and they don't like Christians and they use the considerable power they have within the community to do set ups, slander, mock and even engage in more criminal activities in order to silence voices they want silenced. It may not be legal for them to do some of these things, but they do them all the same. They assume the oversight committee's won't do anything about it.

I strongly suspect that my name went on that list of contacts for this operation for the express intent of making sure others found out about any contact I had with this operative in order to have an excuse to initiate an investigation into me – break into my home, look for stuff, see if they could find anything ANYTHING to use against me to shut me up and put me where they think all Black folks belong, in jail. [This may not make sense to anyone but those in the Intelligence Oversight Committee, sorry  - but it may help if you put this operation more into the 'counter-intelligence' category.]

It was hinted to me in a round about way that they were looking for porn and sex toys and other compromising stuff to use against me. I have nothing like that in my home and they know that. The most 'evil' thing I have in my home is occasionally I have a six pack of Sam Adams in the Fridge, like during the holidays.

As I stated in an earlier post, they even had the gall to use the fake repair man routine and with him was a small child. I won't get into what they started, but they stopped in the middle of what was clearly a rehearsed routine. Then the repair man opened up to me about his experience in a drug bust years ago, that nearly killed him. Then I knew that this was a set up and they pressed him to do what he did.

Dear Senator, I am not looking for revenge and I am fairly certain that at least on some level you are aware of at least some of these things, I can tell that someone is aware by some of the things I have seen done quietly in the back pages of some clued in news sites. Thank you to those who have done the right thing.

However, I humbly request that you make sure that these things don't happen again to me or anyone else and that I am never again contacted by the CIA, its officers or its contractors in any official or semi-official capacity. I was more than wiling to help them secure the nation and do the right thing when it came to this operation, even though my permission was not asked for. I don't want to hear any excuses, explanations, apologies, or other mendacious or self serving words from that quarter. Rather I want to hear nothing but silence from the National Level intelligence community. In short, I want my name to go on permanent, 'off limits' and 'do not contact list'.

Should they come by a threat to my life and must by law report and make me aware, please, I respectfully request that they use the DOJ or the DHS, or State/Local Law enforcement to inform me. I want no more direct contact with the DOD's intelligence people or the CIA. I don't want to wind up in jail on some trumped up or framed up charges because I trusted these people again.

If this is 'burning bridges', lets put some administrative land-mines on both sides of it to make sure it never gets built again as well.

Senator, I may be a bit of a 'windbag' when it comes to my criticism of US foreign policy, but that does not mean I am any less loyal than those who are always in agreement with it who just want to sound patriotic when they don't know what they are talking about half the time. I am no brown-noser or bobblehead.

As a military veteran, American citizen and resident of the state of Maryland, I deserve to be treated better than I have been. In return for trying to help my country out as a private citizen, they tried to abuse the legal system to destroy a Black Veteran. No one likes being stabbed in the back.

My former friend? His job (what he was being paid to do) was to protect me from this kind of witch hunt. Instead, he was one of 'facilitators' of the investigation. He put me on a list that got me put under this witch hunt to begin with and then helped them do the hunting. I will stop short of accusing him directly of being the power behind this, but to put it bluntly its pretty hard for me not to come to that conclusion.

I ask that you seriously look into these matters and ensure that those over at the CIA and DOD go after the enemies of this country, rather than its loyal citizens and military veterans and that some controls and checks and balances that are more effective than the ones that they have now are put in place.

I make this letter public because it's time to shine some light on the dirt going on over inside the Intelligence Community. Too often people are too scared or cowardly to speak out about the crap they have been put through.

I am not one of them. If they want to pull a 'Michael Hastings' on me for speaking out, that is their business. But I am not going to cower down in fear.

Nothing is more dangerous to the nations security than a security apparatus that targets its own loyal citizens.

I do not say these things out of hatred, malice or any desire for revenge. I have waited so long to write because I did not want to do so in anger. Needless to say, I was pretty angry. I simply want to live a quiet life in peace and not be harassed by Intelligence officials who obviously have nothing better to do or spend taxpayer money on than to go after private citizens, Veterans and men like me who were willing to help their country.

I thank you for your time and patience in attending to this matter.

Uganda: Pastor Hacked To Death And Poison Attack

A crowd gathers where the body
 of pastor Bongo Martin was thrown into a
 river in eastern Uganda. (Morning Star News)

NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – A pastor in eastern Uganda was hacked to death on Wednesday (Dec. 23) as

he and other church members resisted an effort by Muslims to take over their land, area church leaders said.

In Nansololo village near Mazuba, in Namutumba District, Muslims erected a boundary fence with poles and barbed wire that included land of the Pentecostal Church Ministry (PCM), a church elder told Morning Star News. A church member who lives close to the church building telephoned pastor Bongo Martin, who immediately came to the site.

“Why are you encroaching on the church’s land and removing the boundary marks?” Pastor Martin asked. A church member said the imam answered, “We have told you many times that we do not want the church to be located near our mosque. Your church has been taking our members to your church.”

A Muslim named Abdulhakha Mugen then drew his sword and struck the pastor’s neck, church members said. Pastor Martin fell down bleeding, and after more sword blows and decapitation, he died. He was 32.

“When I saw such a brutal killing of my pastor, fear gripped me and, fearing for my life, I went to report the incident to Nabitende area police,” a church elder said.

Muslims threw Pastor Martin’s body into a nearby river at 10 a.m., sources said. He is survived by a widow and two children.

“When I arrived at the scene, the pastor’s body had just been thrown into the river, and many people came to witness the sad incident,” the church leader said. “Tension remains high in the area.”

The PCM church has documents showing it bought the disputed land from Kamya Ephraim for 3.4 million Uganda shillings (US$1,000), the church leader said.

“The church building extends to a nearby river that borders mosque land, and on several occasions we have been threatened that our church building should be removed from its present location,” the church leader said.

The church intended to establish an orphanage in the center of Nansololo, but plans are now on hold.

Christians Poisoned to Death

In another area of eastern Uganda, five underground Christians in a predominantly Muslim village, including a pregnant mother, have died from a pesticide put into their food after a Bible study, area sources said.

The Bible study took place on Dec. 18 in Kachomo village, Kachomo Sub-County, Budaka District at the home of Hajii Suleiman Sajjabi, a convert from Islam who had begun the study with eight family members who had come to faith in Christ under his influence.

Sajjabi is in a coma after someone put a pesticide into the food the group ate after the study, and four of his relatives have died, according to area sources: Katooko Aisha Sajjabi, 22, died at 4 a.m. on Dec. 19; Mwanje Husain Sajjabi, 24, died at 5 a.m. that day; Eric Ali Sajjabi, 29, later died; and Musa Namusongi Sajjabi, 26, later died. A fifth person, neighbor Mariam Kurumu, a pregnant mother, died at 5 a.m. on Dec. 19 at Mbale Regional Hospital.  - Story Continues at and is Creative Commons copyright by Morning Star News

Hosea Part IV

We left off the last section where the Lord was telling Hosea's harlot wife and by extension Israel just who was the source of all of the blessings her soul lusted after. She was going after and pleasing all of her lovers (bedtime customers) whom she thought was providing her with the things she needed and wanted. God had to remind her and them that he and he alone is the ultimate source of blessings. Brothers, like so many lost souls and backsliders, apostates and those who hate God, the key often lies in the phrase '...they did not know'

For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil,
and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof,
and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.

(Hos 2:8-9)

The Most High is telling his people that God was the source of their blessings. This is something that they did not know, or rather forgotten or rejected. This is the basic of wisdom, which both Hosea's wife and the entire Northern Kingdom had forgotten. Wisdom is the acknowledgement and fear of God.

Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.
(Pro 2:5)

The wise man was talking about getting wisdom, something Gomer and the Northern Kingdom clearly lacked. So the Lord was going to take away the blessings she had. The food, and luxury items that Gomer was willing to 'put out' for. But her lovers were not the source, nor were the idols of Israel the source of the great blessings Israel enjoyed. Note that in verse 8, Israel is preparing all of God's blessings for Baal! The Lord was not happy about this at all and tells Israel, that because of this, he was going to take away those blessings. Even the source of the clothes on her back, which by virtue of her employment, she probably did not wear too often (!).

Again, God is warning Israel about her spiritual adultery as symbolized in the behavior of Hosea's wife. This affection for idols was going to lead Israel into a place of want and great trouble.

And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand. I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts. And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
(Hos 2:10-12)

The Lord then makes a clear threat. That she was going to discover her lewedness - in essence shame and embarrass her and God wanted to remind her that no one can deliver out of his hand. His word was final. The party time and leisure was all going to go away. The luxuries... all of that was going to be a thing of the past, for the Lord had spoken it. All of feast days and new-moon holidays, he was going to do away with. This passage is rather interesting because it is not clear how much of the Jewish religion was actually being practiced, or if they transferred the religious holidays of Yahweh, onto the idol Baal. Albert Barnes has a different take as he thought that they had a form of Godliness when it came to these times of the year to assuage their own guilt ridden consciences. Here is how he put it.

But man, even while he disobeys God, does not like to part with Him altogether, but would serve Him enough to soothe his own conscience, or as far as he can without parting with his sin which he loves better. Jeroboam retained all of God’s worship, which he could combine with his own political ends; and even in Ahab’s time Israel “halted between two opinions,” and Judah “sware both by the Lord and by Malcham” Zep_1:5, the true God and the false. - Albert Barnes
The passage continues and warns that God was going to destroy the vines and and figs. God was going to target their bread basked as well. This way, they could let the stone god they all worshiped provide their food and clothing for them!

And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them,
and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers,
and forgat me, saith the LORD.

(Hos 2:13)

This passage is self explanatory. God was not happy about Israel and her Baalim lovers and the way she prettied herself up to please them.

Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness,
and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence,
and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth,
and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be at that day,
saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali. For I will take
away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they
shall no more be remembered by their name.

(Hos 2:14-17)

Here the Lord changes tone completely. The prophet, speaking for the Lord makes clear that when all of these evils come, God will woo Israel once again and give her those blessings again. Always in the works of the prophets we see this theme. God does not leave those whom he warns without hope. It is when God does ceases to warn that one should worry... has the Lord given them over? But this is not the case here. God was going to bring Israel to a place of shall we say, 'reconsideration'. She was going to reconsider her ways and God would speak gently to her, if she repented. Then there would be reconciliation. The them is a common one. After sin and rebuke, people Reconsider their ways, Repent and are Reconciled. That is the whole purpose of divine chastisement .

The next part of this passage is rather interesting as it harkens back to the days of Joshua. The Valley of Achor. This is situated north of Gilgal and Jericho. It is not clear that this area was noted for its fruitfulness. Rather, it seems clear to this author that the prophet is making an allusion to an event that happened during the days of Joshua. Israel had a major military defeat and Joshua was on his face trying to figure out what happened. Here is how the Lord replied.

And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.
(Jos 7:10-11)

One Israelite (Achan) had done that which God commanded not to do. Here is the rest of the story as it is rather instructive of Idolatry, greed, disobedience and the results thereof.

And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD. And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.
(Jos 7:19-25)

God was reminding Israel with this allusion to a great sin of the past, but also was changing its whole meaning from one of trouble (the name Achor means trouble) and the incident where Achan troubled Israel,  to one of hope. In the day of reconciliation, they shall sing like they came out of Egypt in the days of Moses (See Exodus 15:1). On that day, Israel will call the Lord husband (Ishi) and cease references to the idolatrous god of Baal.

For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely. And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.
(Hos 2:17-20)

Again the whole idea of worshiping a stone cow will be over. They will no longer refer to it or remember it. That is the day that God will make a new covenant, but this one seems to be with all creation; beast, birds, reptiles and insects as well dealing with the spirit of warfare. There will be a new safety and security, founded on  God. There will  be a marriage and God will be married to them forever.

This is clearly a reference to the Adamic curse and the whole disorder the creation is now in as a result of sin's entry. This is also, I think is a reference to the Millennium Kingdom and the Marriage supper of the Lamb, when All Israel is redeemed and saved, included we grafted in Gentiles (See Romans Chapter 11).

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
(Rev 19:7-9)

God lets them know that in that day, there would faithfulness between the each. Is this theme found in the NT?

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them:
for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings:
and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
(Rev 17:14)
These are the same ones invited to the Marriage supper of the Lamb, those that are faithful. As those of you know, faithfulness is an essential element of any good marriage.

And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.
(Hos 2:21-23)

The passage here gives a more complete picture of the complete reconciliation not just of Israel to God, but of all creation to God. And again we see how much of this was fulfilled in the Church age but the greatest part is yet to come, when Christ returns and restores all things. It is at that time that the creation shall hear Jezreel. This is the name for Israel, if you remember (Hosea 1:4). The following verse uses the play on words (Jezreel means to sow) to demonstrate how God will bless his people in that day.

This is a wonderful passage that shows the completeness of God's forgiveness and his love for his people. This passage was used by Paul to show how God was also going to bring in Gentiles, who were not God's people. While Israel had to undergo rejection, the Gentiles were never called 'my people' until the Church age. Now in this Church age, we who place our faith in the Messiah, Jesus Christ can obtain the mercy that is of God and reserved for his people. If you have placed your faith in Christ Jesus and have his spirit dwelling in you, then you are indeed one of his.

President Obama Releases Christmas Statement On Persecuted Christians

During this season of Advent, Christians in the United States and around the world are preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  At this time, those of us fortunate enough to live in countries that honor the birthright of all people to practice their faith freely give thanks for that blessing.  Michelle and I are also ever-mindful that many of our fellow Christians do not enjoy that right, and hold especially close to our hearts and minds those who have been driven from their ancient homelands by unspeakable violence and persecution.

In some areas of the Middle East where church bells have rung for centuries on Christmas Day, this year they will be silent; this silence bears tragic witness to the brutal atrocities committed against these communities by ISIL. 

We join with people around the world in praying for God’s protection for persecuted Christians and those of other faiths, as well as for those brave men and women engaged in our military, diplomatic, and humanitarian efforts to alleviate their suffering and restore stability, security, and hope to their nations.  As the old Christmas carol reminds us:

The Wrong shall fail,

The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men.

 - The White House

Thank you very much Mr. President, for speaking out for so many who have lost so much over the past several years.

'We Were Asleep': Egyptian Christian On The Arab Spring

I wanted to post this story for my readers and I hope that you get a chance to read this brief piece (it follows this commentary). I was struck by it when I read what one Egyptian Christian said. He said that the Church was asleep. Then suddenly out of nowhere and with no warning there was a great shaking. After that as we all have seen, Egyptian Christians have been seriously persecuted even as far away as places like Libya. I have posted some of the more notable incidents after this piece from World Watch Monitor.

Brothers, many of our brethren in Christ don't understand why I spend so much time on nazi-ism and fasism. They don't understand why its important particularly for Christians. They just don't get it. They fail to understand that in every nation where there is severe persecution, a fascist model of governance is in place. That includes Egypt, where the military held and still holds considerable sway over the political process. When change came to Egypt, everyone initially thought it would be good but it was a disaster for Christians. It came in suddenly and with no warning. The Christians were asleep and awoke to the fires of hatred towards them from the government, the police, the military and even their own once friendly neighbors.

The same thing will happen in the west (notice I did not say 'might' happen). There has been serious power behind the throne who have been very busy making sure all the tools they need are in place to do something very similar to what happened in places like Egypt and Thailand a few years ago. What is so different about here is that they are doing so much of it and America's political elite and not even much of the US establishment know it as they ignorantly assist its enthronement. Think things like the Patriot Act for starters. Curbing of the people's rights and avenues of dissent are critical to the fascists.

Once everything is in place, they will pick their man who will get into the White House. This is why it's essential that bills like that last Omnibus Bill that had CISA in it got tacked onto something that no one could read. It had to be rammed through fast. Who has that power to do that? The power behind the throne -  a network of High Priced lobbyists, powerful families, Intelligence officials (who have 'brown envelopes' on key political leaders) , Bankers, connected corporations, organized criminals and even foreign governments now are dictating these policies, while they lie to us about how 'essential' they are  for 'our security'. They get a rubber stamp court who has unconstitutional power whose members are not even confirmed by the Senate, to steal our liberties in the strictest secrecy. This is a horrible, 'rotten egg' kind of court.

They tried a coup once before and failed many years ago. They will try it again. How? You are dealing with very powerful families and interests who have long had a plan. This is a Generational plan that has limitless amounts of money to spend on bringing it about.

I know many people don't want to hear this especially not the hyper patriots who don't know their history nor believe that citizens  - that would be you and me - not the government must always be VIGILANT against those who would destroy our nation from within.  My point is this - American Christians think that the American flag and their rights under the Constitution will protect them. I am telling you that in secret, they are burning the Constitution and have made a mockery of your rights... while you sleep.

Christians must be particularly concerned AND VIGILANT. Instead, like the Coptic Christians of Egypt, they are asleep at best or spiritually dead at worst. It's impossible to wake up a dead man.

Brothers, when the enemy comes in, it will be like a flood -  suddenly with no warning (to the sleeping) and with no way to stop it. But if we trust our God and don't fall asleep but remain awake and watchful, we will see just how the Lord protects those who live for him and love him.

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
(Isa 59:19-21)

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord!

5 years On: What Has The Arab Spring Meant For Christians?

Demonstrators on the streets of Cairo, Egypt in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, November 2012
(Copyright World Watch Monitor)

(17, Dec 2015 World Watch Monitor) The Arab Spring, which began five years ago today (17th December) started with a wave of protests in Tunisia followed by other Arab countries. It was positively acclaimed as a social movement demanding an end to human rights violations, government corruption and poverty.

Yet, so far, the outcome is largely contrary to what the original protesters intended, and since Christians are a minority in all Arab countries, they have been especially affected, mostly for the worse.

Arab Spring 5 Years Later Video

In Egypt the revolution resulted in immediate new freedoms that Christians had not experienced before. However after all the upheavals of the last few years, there was no assurance it would last.

Egyptian Christian Diana Melek: “The revolution came to the church shaking it. The revolution shook all of us. They were sleeping and they were shaken awake and they got up, and then they went back to sleep again. First I called it a miracle, it was full of flowers, so it was spring, it seemed a godly spring.”

Christians across the Middle East thought that new governments would provide them with human rights, and the right to be free to believe in Jesus Christ. But as elections were held, new hard line Islamist political parties, like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, succeeded in getting into power.

Under the old authoritarian rule, the position of Christians’ minority rights was, to a certain extent, safeguarded. The ousting of dictators like Colonel Khaddafi in Libya and Hosni Mubarak in Egypt left a power vacuum that benefited Islamist fundamentalists, and also criminal gangs.

The anti-Christian sentiments of these groups means that violence against both historical Christian minorities and new believers from Muslim backgrounds has increased.

The Arab Spring has also birthed the emergence of Islamic State which continues to make international headlines for its barbarity of ethnic cleansing of Christians in Syria and Iraq.

Because of the on-going chaotic and threatening situation across the region many of the last of the Christian communities continue to leave their native countries en masse, which is a massive blow in the birthplace of the faith. Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, 700,000 Christians have fled the country.

Syrian Christian Wael Haddad: “We had to pray for Syria, maybe from 40 or 50 years ago. Every time we asked ‘Please, Lord, bring a revolution, a spiritual revolution. [God] shake, shake the nest!’ …But maybe we didn’t think about how the Lord will allow this to happen to His Church.”

Persecution of Coptic Christians - Notable incidents

  • January 1, 2011 (On New Year's Eve)

A car bomb exploded in front of an Alexandria Coptic Orthodox Church killing at least 21 and injuring at least 79. The incident happened a few minutes after midnight as Christians were leaving a New Year's Eve Church service.[33][34][35]

  • January 11, 2011 —A mentally deranged member of the police force opened fire randomly in a train in Samalout station in Minya province resulting in the death of a 71-year-old Coptic Christian man and injuring of 5 others Copts and Muslims.[36]
  • March 5, 2011 — A church was set on fire in Sole, Egypt by a group of Muslim men angry that a Muslim woman was romantically involved with a Christian man. Large groups of Copts then proceeded to hold major protests stopping traffic for hours in vital areas of Cairo.[37][38]
  • April 2011 — After the death of two Muslims on April 18, sectarian violence broke out in the southern Egyptian town of Abu Qurqas El Balad, in Minya Governorate, 260 km south of Cairo. One Christian Copt was killed. Coptic homes, shops, businesses, fields and livestock were plundered and torched.
  • The government has been trying to prevent such tribal behavior in rural Egypt as Egypt is known for having different tribes living in villages.[39][40][41][42]
  • May 7, 2011 — A dispute started over claims that several women who converted to Islam had been abducted by the church and was being held against her will in St. Mary Church of Imbaba, Giza, ended in violent clashes that left 15 dead, among whom were Muslims and Christians, and roughly 55 injured. Eyewitnesses confirmed the church was burnt by salifists who are not from the neighborhood, by the committee of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR). Copts converting to Islam are usually advised by the police to take out restraining orders against their families as the Coptic community does not tolerate converts to Islam. These incidents have fueled strife and problems between Copts and Muslims as in the famous case of Camelia.[43]
  • May 2011 — Copts in Maspero, Cairo are attacked during protests one dies.
Main article: Maspero Massacre
  • May 18, 2011 — The Coptic Church obtained a permission in January to turn a garment factory bought by the church in 2006, into a church in the neighbourhood of Ain Shams of Cairo. However, angry Muslim mobs attacked the church and scores of Copts and Muslims were arrested for the disturbance. On Sunday May 29, an Egyptian Military Court sentenced two Coptic Christians to five years in jail each for violence and for trying to turn a factory into an unlicensed church.[44]
  • October 9, 2011
  • The worst sectarian violence occurred in 2011, when the army killed at least 24 Christians in what became known as the "Maspero massacre".[45]

Thousands of Coptic Christians took to the streets in Cairo to protest the burning of a church in Marinab and were headed towards Maspiro, where they were met with armoured personnel carrier, APCs, and hundreds of riot police and special forces. Army vehicles charged at the protesters and reports of at least 6 protesters being crushed under APCs, including one with a crushed skull, has emerged. In addition, witnesses have confirmed that military personnel were seen firing live ammunition into the protesters, while the Health Ministry confirmed that at least 20 protesters have undergone surgery for bullet wounds.[46] In total, an estimated 24 Copts were killed, while numbers as high as 36 and 50 were reported, including unconfirmed reports of the death of several soldiers.[47]

The events came against the backdrop of tensions simmering due to the violent military breakup of a sit-in staged at Maspiro by Coptic demonstrators a few days earlier to protest the burning of the church of Marinab in the Governorate of Aswan by the Salafis of the region.

  • 18 September 2012 — A Coptic Christian schoolteacher was sentenced to jail for six years because he posted cartoons on Facebook which were allegedly defamatory to Islam and Mohammed, and also insulted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi. Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya members and Salafist groups attempted to attack Kamel as he was led out of court, and rocks were thrown at the police car used to take him away from the court. However, the schoolteacher denied posting the cartoons and said that his account was hacked.[48]
  • April 2013
Main article: Cathedral Clashes

For ages Copts suffered being marginalized, under discriminatory acts on many of their rights through many decades, but it got worse after January 25, 2010, when the Islamists reached power.

The bloodshed appeared to mark a turning point in the revolution. Police and armed civilians have laid siege to the seat of the Coptic church in Cairo, St. Mark's Cathedral, killing three people and injuring at least 21 Copts and Muslims, as a funeral for four Christians killed in sectarian clashes on Saturday descended into chaos.

Some mourners were about to be attacked as they tried to leave Egypt's largest cathedral, forcing them back inside the cathedral precinct and sparking a siege that lasted all afternoon and stretched into the night. Police fired teargas over the cathedral walls and stood by as unknown men armed with birdshot, knives and petrol bombs scaled nearby buildings to try to attack those inside the church grounds, however they were soon confronted by a young group of Copts who were trying to defend the mourners inside the Church by exchanging petrol bombs and rocks with Islamic extrimists on opposite side of the Church entrance.

As The Guardian reports, four Christians and one Muslim were killed in sectarian clashes that broke out north of Cairo after children allegedly drew a swastika on Islamic property. On Sunday Christians gathered in Cairo to remember the dead in a service that ended by further escalating sectarian tensions reslulting in two Christians being killed and one Muslim killed. Local news reports that the sixth Coptic victim who has died was set on fire during the clashes died in hospital a few days later, while according to other media sources the second Muslim victim died from a fractured skull.[49] Doctors and Interior Ministry officials said bullet wounds accounted for most of the deaths, including that of Mina Daniel, a young political activist a doctor said had been shot in the shoulder and leg.

Abduction and forced conversion of Coptic women

Coptic women and girls are sometimes abducted, forced to convert to Islam and marry Muslim men.[50][51] In 2009 the Washington, D.C. based group Christian Solidarity International published a study of the abductions and forced marriages and the anguish felt by the young women because returning to Christianity is against the law.

In April 2010, a bipartisan group of 17 members of the U.S. Congress expressed concern to the State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Office about Coptic women who faced "physical and sexual violence, captivity ... exploitation in forced domestic servitude or commercial sexual exploitation, and financial benefit to the individuals who secure the forced conversion of the victim."[50]

Post-revolution anti-women radical trend afflicting Coptics

The synchronization of such fatwas of Abu Islam's and similar scholars[52] that categorize certain groups of women (basically Coptic women) as 'asking for it' just because they are not in the radical boat, or that they are opposers to the regime have been seen as unacceptable and degrading to Egyptian women in general, independent women (widows and divorced) in particular and more specifically to the Coptic women who were categorized as Crusaders, sharameet (prostitutes), lewd and willing to be raped.[53] Salma Almasrya, an Egyptian Activist said that what the scholar has claimed comes in harmony with the official declaration from state men which blamed the female activists for the rape crimes they were subject to,[53][54][55][56][57] then comes the un-deterred harassment on the part of the Ministry of Media for two media female interviewers in two different situations calling one (hot) on air while asking the other to (come and I will show you where!) when she asked about the freedom of expression, a phrase that was considered very offensive by the media[58] causing many activists to believe there was a state-orchestrated terrorism against female activists by humiliation and intimidation rather than force which has been condemned by many media people around the country.

The parliamentary quota for women was removed without debate and a promised female vice-president failed to materialise, amid what political commentator Moushira Khattab called "a radical anti-feminist sentiment". Morsi threatened but stopped short of decriminalizing Egypt's practice of female genital mutilation, carried out on almost three-quarters of Egyptian girls, making it clear he would not tackle an issue he called "a family matter". Such anti-feminist sentiments mobilize the community against 'liberal' Muslim women, female activists, and Coptic women.

Hosea Part III

Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ruhamah. Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts; Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.
(Hos 2:1-3)

Chapter two begins by using a play on words from the names given to Hosea's two children. Both leave of the participle 'Lo' and instead of not my people and no pity, we have my people and mercy as the names of the brethren. This passage looks to a time when that which was cast off and rejected now experience the joy of divine reconciliation. This tends to be the traditional view of this passage. But I think we need to try and differentiate something here. There appear to be two sets of children here. Those that Gomer had before she was married to Hosea and those that Hosea had with her. There appear to be one set of children that are the 'children of whoredoms' and the other which are the product of this most unusual marriage. But this marriage's symbology is far less about the natural children of Gomer, but rather of the whorish nature of Israel in those days. Let us remember that these were the days when the Canaanite religion was flourishing in ancient Israel. The worship of Baal which was in many ways a religion of sex and fertility and it was in fashion in Hosea's time.

This is probably one reason why the prophet was to use this marriage and sexual union as a symbol to the nation. Therefore we should look at this passage and the person who is doing the addressing as the Lord and this message is to his people. God was upset with his people and by prophetic symbol this adulterous women, whom at this point in time and because of her continued unfaithfulness is now called 'not my wife'. The Lord warns her to put away her adulteries (her worship of Baal) and here he makes a clear sexual reference 'from between her breasts'. Then comes the threat. God uses another semi-sexual reference and threatens to strip her naked. This is a symbol of shame and always has been. In the NT we are commanded to keep our garments lest we go naked and men see our shame. God is threatening Israel just as Christ threatened the Christians in Laodicea.

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
(Rev 3:18-19)

In both passages do you know what I see implied? The issue of idolatry. In Ancient Israel it was the worship of Baal, in Laodicea it was the worship of wealth (Mammon). In both passages there were clear threats and also a path towards reconciliation. Reconciliation can only be obtained by rejecting idolatrous worship/relationship and turning one's face back to Christ. There is not a third way. You can't do it by putting an extra lamb on the sacrificial altar, or by putting more money in the church coffers. You must repent of idolatry which by way of extension, spiritual whoredoms. The Lord was going to chastise them even to the death, should that be necessary and slay them with thirst.

And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.
(Hos 2:4-5)

Clearly this passage is indicative of a persistent apostasy and idolatry. But more here is indicated as we look at the conduct of the mother which was clearly reflected in the character of the children. Here is how Gill looks at this passage
And I will not have mercy upon her children,.... The posterity of the Jews in succeeding ages, until the time of their conversion comes; they persisting in the sins of their forefathers, filling up the measure of their iniquities; remaining in their obstinate rejection of the Messiah, and in the same impenitence and unbelief, and having his blood imprecated upon them:

for they be the children of whoredoms; begotten and born in whoredom, spurious and illegitimate; or that commit whoredoms; imitate their parents; are guilty of the same vices; a generation of vipers. So the Targum,

"for they are children that commit idolatry;''

retain the traditions of the elders; go about to establish their own righteousness, and reject the Messiah. - John Gill

Again the Lord lays out what this woman is - she is a whore. Her behavior is both scandalous and inexcusable and she was a reproach to her husband. Again what does a whore do? She has sex for money; she 'puts out' for scratch. So as we look at the second part of verse 5, we see something that many may miss for she said, 'I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink'. (Hos 2:5b). The whore is going to her lovers (idols) that give her her bread and butter. They pay her bills and that is why she 'loves' them.

Today the worship of Baal is no longer in fashion, but the worship of money, stocks, treasuries, 401(k)'s and the likes are.  They are very much in fashion. Most people do not understand the level of idolatry that has come into being as a result of the system of Mammon that now has totally engulfed the West and most of Asia, as well as much of the Middle East.  Mammon, like Baal is a competing religious system to the worship of God, who created all things. Mammon provides material blessings to its most ardent worshipers as long as the Mammonite ethic is put first in a persons life. That ethic can be summed up as money first or money uber alles. Men in our country, many of them work hard for money, they connive, conspire, invest, divest, defraud, launder, hack, legislate and other wise plot to take money out of someone else's pocket and put it into theirs. For many years I have written  on the spirit of mammon. Mammon is nothing more that the love of and obsession with worldly wealth, riches.

While this may be a stretch here. Let me say that God is not averse to blessing his people with wealth. But wealth is a slave-master and obtaining it is far more enslaving that liberating. I see mammon as the personal and ungodly obsession with riches and money so that it becomes more important than God, home, family, ministry, faith, hope, love. In short, a true Mammonite will sacrifice his mother if it can put some money into his or her pocket. Today, in our society one of the worst crimes I see is how children victimize their elderly parents usually for money. The entire western society just seems to have lost any loss of value for anything that is not attached to a dollar amount. Today we are always talking about the 'economic benefits' of this or that program how much something costs and the financial outlays. Money and money alone is the lifeblood of the west, particularly America, where much of the modern form of the Mammonite Religion has its birth. America has lots its soul to Mammon and much of the modern Church has lost its soul to it as well. So while this passage was directed at Israel and the Canaanite religion that existed during Hosea's time, the prophetic metaphor is still relevant. God does not like idolatry or spiritual whoredoms and will place those who engage in them onto a bed of tribulation. Let us take a look at a different spiritual adulteress in the New Testament. Her name as given by the Lord was Jezebel.

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
(Rev 2:20-23)

The theme is very similar to Hosea's. A loose women with no sexual morals, idolatry and the call to repentance, with a clear threat -  repent or else.

Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths. And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now. For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
(Hos 2:6-8)

The Lord here threatens to corral this burning heifer, with a wall of thorns so that she gets lost and cannot get to all of her lovers. Only then, when she can no longer get to her customers lovers will she consider returning to her husband. Only then will she realize that her lovers don't love her and that things were better with her husband. This is passage is quite reminiscent of the parable of the prodigal son.

Verse eight I think is so telling. It is God who was the ultimate source of all blessings. What the harlot did not know was that God is the source of all those things her soul lusted after. The devil got her mind off of God and onto 'things' and that was one of her major errors. She saw her lovers (idols) as the source when in fact it was God who was the source of all blessings.

Let me close this entry by using Albert Barnes' notes on this passage. Here is what he says about it.

For she did not know - The prophet having, in summary Hos_2:5-7, related her fall, her chastisement, and her recovery, begins anew, enlarging both on the impending inflictions, and the future mercy. She “did not know,” because she would not; she “would not retain God in her knowledge” Rom_1:28. “Knowledge,” in Holy Scripture, is not of the understanding, but of the heart and the will.

That I gave her corn ... - The I is emphatic (אנכי( ci). “She did not know, that it was I who gave her.” God gave them the “corn, and wine, and oil,” first, because He gave them the land itself. They held it of Him as their Lord. As He says, “The land is Mine, and ye are strangers and sojourners with Me” Lev_25:23. He gave them also in the course of His ordinary providence, wherein He also gave them “the gold and silver,” which they gained by trading. Silver He had so multiplied to her in the days of Solomon, that it was in “Jerusalem as stones, nothing accounted of” 1Ki_10:27, 1Ki_10:21, and gold, through the favor which He gave him 1Ki_9:14; 1Ki_10:10, 1Ki_10:14, was in abundance above measure.

Which they prepared for Baal - Rather, as in the English Margin, “which they made into Baal” (see Hos_8:4; Eze_16:17-19). “Of that gold and silver, which God had so multiplied, Israel, revolting from the house of David and Solomon, made, first the calves of gold, and then Baal.” Of God’s own gifts they made their gods. They took God’s gifts as from their gods, and made them into gods to them. “Baal,” Lord, the same as Bel, was an object of idolatry among the Phoenicians and Tyrians. Its worship was brought into Israel by Jezebel, daughter of a king of Sidon. Jehu destroyed it for a time, because its adherents were adherents of the house of Ahab. The worship was partly cruel, like that of Moloch, partly abominable. It had this aggravation beyond that of the calves, that Jezebel aimed at the extirpation of the worship of God, setting up a rival temple, with its 450 prophets and 400 of the kindred idolatry of Ashtaroth, and slaying all the prophets of God.

It seems to us strange folly. They attributed to gods, who represented the functions of nature, the power to give what God alone gives. How is it different, when people now say, “nature does this, or that,” or speak of “the operations of nature,” or the laws of “nature,” and ignore God who appoints those laws, and “worketh hitherto” Joh_5:17 “those operations?” They attributed to planets (as have astrologers at all times) influence over the affairs of people, and worshiped a god, Baal-Gad, or Jupiter, who presided over them. Wherein do those otherwise, who displace God’s providence by fortune or fate or destiny, and say “fortune willed,” “fortune denied him,” “it was his fate, his destiny,” and, even when God most signally interposes, shrink from naming Him, as if to speak of God’s providence were something superstitious? What is this, but to ascribe to Baal, under a new name, the works and gifts of God? And more widely yet. Since “men have as many strange gods as they have sins,” what do they, who seek pleasure or gain or greatness or praise in forbidden ways or from forbidden sources, than make their pleasure or gain or ambition their god, and offer their time and understanding and ingenuity and intellect, yea, their whole lives and their whole selves, their souls and bodies, all the gifts of God, in sacrifice to the idol which they have made? Nay, since whosoever believes of God otherwise than He has revealed Himself, does, in fact, believe in another god, not in the One True God, what else does all heresy, but form to itself an idol out of God’s choicest gift of nature, man’s own mind, and worship, not indeed the works of man’s own hands, but the creature of his own understanding? - Albert Barnes

CISA: Secret Surveillance Bill's True Purpose Revealed

Well you want Total Surveillance - this is it. But they are hiding its true purpose as a 'Cybersecurity Bill'

This is just a new attempt and Gestapo-ization of the Internet. Listen,  We all want Cybersecurity - this bill has nothing to do with cybersecirty - this is about a total surveillance society the boys in the Intelligence community want to impose on America because it is a key foundation of Fascism. Get ready -  they are moving things forward very quickly.

Its about getting the spies and traitors (the droves of them) who operate in this community the access that foreign powers don't have and cant get, so it can be dutifully passed to this nations enemies.

I hope you get a chance to read this and pray for Senator Wyden. He is one of  the very few people on the Hill who actually has the clearances to know what this all means. Other members of Congress, believe it or not, just don't have them. They have to  go on 'trust' of what the NSA and the CIA tell them and the truth can't pass from their lips except by accident which is rapidly and ruthlessly punished by a system that whose criminality is only now beginning to dawn on the world.

This is how bad and evil bills get passed in the House and Senate.

People think they got change with Paul Ryan now Speaker of the House. Nope, different face, same Swastika behind the throne.

Do pray for Senator Wyden. They have ways of making Senators who don't follow the fascist road 'go away'.

Congressman McKinney and Kucinich - They redrew the lines in their districts to get these two courageous elected reps out of office. They were anti-war and anti-fasism. They had to go and they went, though less violently than Wellstone.

Wyden is in danger, though I think he probably has some protection. When these fascists want to take someone out, a seat in the Senate won't stop them.

For you Christians out there who have been blinded by a flag that has lost its Constitutional meaning and wonder why this is relevant. I will give you a little history lesson.

Many parts of Germany (where religious dissent existed upon the Nazi seizure of power) saw a rapid transformation; a change as noted by the Gestapo in conservative towns such as Würzburg, where people acquiesced to the regime either through accommodation, collaboration, or simple compliance.[29] Increasing religious objections to Nazi policies led the Gestapo to carefully monitor church organizations. For the most part, members of the church did not offer political resistance but simply wanted to ensure that organizational doctrine remained intact.[30]

However, the Nazi regime sought to suppress any source of ideology other than its own, and set out to muzzle or crush the churches in the so-called Kirchenkampf. When Church leaders (clergy) voiced their misgiving about the euthanasia program and Nazi racial policies, Hitler intimated that he considered them "traitors to the people" and went so far as to call them "the destroyers of Germany."[31] The extreme anti-Semitism and neo-Pagan heresies of the Nazis caused some Christians to outright resist,[32] and Pope Pius to issue the encyclical Mit brennender Sorge denouncing Nazism and warning Catholics against joining or supporting the Party. Some pastors, like the Protestant clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer, paid for their opposition with their lives. Bonhoeffer was an active opponent of Nazism in the German resistance movement.[33]

In an effort to counter the strength and influence of spiritual resistance, Nazi records reveal that the Gestapo's Referat B1 monitored the activities of bishops very closely – instructing that agents be set up in every diocese, that the bishops' reports to the Vatican should be obtained and that the bishops' areas of activity must be found out. Deans were to be targeted as the "eyes and ears of the bishops" and a "vast network" established to monitor the activities of ordinary clergy: "The importance of this enemy is such that inspectors of security police and of the security service will make this group of people and the questions discussed by them their special concern".[34]

In Dachau: The Official History 1933–1945, Paul Berben wrote that clergy were watched closely, and frequently denounced, arrested and sent to concentration camps: "One priest was imprisoned in Dachau for having stated that there were good folk in England too; another suffered the same fate for warning a girl who wanted to marry an S.S. man after abjuring the Catholic faith; yet another because he conducted a service for a deceased communist". Other were arrested simply on the basis of being "suspected of activities hostile to the State" or that there was reason to "suppose that his dealings might harm society".[35] Over 2700 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox clergy were imprisoned at Dachau alone.

After Heydrich (who was staunchly anti-Catholic and anti-Christian) was assassinated in Prague, his successor, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, relaxed some of the policies and then disbanded Department IVB (religious opponents) of the Gestapo - (Gestapo Wikipedia).

So pray about this. The power behind the throne in DC won't stop until all peaceful avenues of political dissent are done away with and the Internet is one of their key targets.

Once they cut out your ability to bring in change, they will bring in change you will do all in your power to roll back and stop and won't be able.  Some of you say things are not that bad, they couldn't be.

Yes, they are. They really are. The political system is designed to stop the investigations so the abuses can continue and grow. Chicago may be the worse, but it's hardly the only one with major problems. The problems are widespread and go right through our DOD, our Intelligence community and even some of our Federal Law Enforcement. More here.

There is some stuff going on behind closed doors that would make you seriously think about leaving this country, some of it is just that bad.

Dear readers, they are working on ALL means of resistance.

They know what they are planning. You don't. They are working from a playbook and once you read it, nothing they do will surprise you. You too can be a 'prophet' who can accurately predict the future. You won't even need any divine help. They are working on a model that has worked time and time again.

That's why they will win.

For by Black brothers and sisters all I can say is this. The racism you see out there? Those are not 'random acts of racism'. There is seriously organized power and wealth behind so much of it. All of it that matters. If you want to  better understand the roots of racism - interpose the words racism and fascism.

You will find your answer there.

Pope's, Altars and High Heel Shoes

You know, much of Bible prophecy is just not going to be fulfilled the way so many western 'Bible prophesy' experts think it is. They have a set narrative and they stick to it if they want to keep their jobs, connections and revenue streams. Do you know why they are and will miss so much? They don't really study the word (rather than just some prophecy books) and they don't know how to really watch in these troubled times. To watch you have to know what to watch for and more importantly you must be able to strip away the propaganda, the lies and the misdirections in our news reporting to get to the deeper issues that are fanning conflicts, killing Christians, creating millions of refugee's, driving debt markets and who is behind it, what they plan and why. The false workmen can't and wont see it - in many cases God has blinded their eyes.  But should they really start to look behind the emotionalized and propaganda headlines, they will see that many of those ideas and narratives being pushed in the western prophecy business are false. False because someone paid for those narratives to be there.

Brothers, it takes a person who knows how to analyze, understand, research, discern, de-emotionalize and use his Bible with a strong analytical  background coupled with a heavy dose of common sense (a rare quality today in America) and is guided by the Holy Spirit to get to the  bottom of what is happening in our world and how it really relates to Bible prophecy.

I see hardly any Watchmen or so called Prophets who can really do that. Too many want to impute Bible verses to the wrong things, just to sound 'spiritual'. They want to be liked and get high traffic numbers so that they can 'be somebody' to the religious world.

Watson's Web is not about that. I don't give one whit what the Christian right or the Christian left think about me. I don't care about what the Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, Anglican or any other denomination thinks about me and my work here. So many of them are teeming with false workmen, greed filled pharisee's, secret and not so secret Freemasons and satanists that were they to start liking what I am doing, I would know I had missed the Lord and begin to search for where I went wrong... and pray God I found it!

These are the days of great falling away - the Church leadership today in the west for the most part forsook the Lord long ago.

You know, I had heard a well placed rumor that this Pope when asked about his own Apostasy (calling those who believe the Bible 'crazy') made a quip that the reason was that Jesus didn't come back. That is why he is leading Catholicism into the arms of the world. He said that Jesus left the Church (his bride)  'stranded at the altar'. This is why he hates fundamentalism so - he is in reality an Apostate.

Well, I would say this  - Christ did not leave his bride stranded at the altar. He went away to buy his tux and as soon as he got in his car and it went around the corner, his bride-to-be went upstairs, put on some high heel shoes, a short-short mini skirt, a low cut blouse put on some makeup and headed down to the red light district to scare up some business. She thinks Christ will still marry her after she puts on her white dress again and still smells of sex with the last three guys who hired her for 'services rendered'. Some of her 'customers' weren't even of age and were of the same sex!

As I have been going over the book of Hosea for my readers, what strikes me most is just how much God values faithfulness and just how much he really hates adultery - Spiritual and marital. Hosea's constant and unwavering message is that God is ready to abandon his people if they persist in their adulterous ways.

I am also struck by the fact that when Christ does return, only those who are faithful to him are with him. Faithfulness to God and the gospel truths are the only way we can reign with Christ. You are not going to do it making a living 'on your back' and never having to leave your bedroom,  as the saying goes.

Today, the Church too much wants to be loved by 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)

When one looks at even the book of Revelation we see the themes of faithfulness contrasted with Whoredom's.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them:
for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called,
and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest,
where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
(Rev 17:14-15)

The Christ system and the whore system are wholly incompatible and when Church leaders get in bed with the world system, they become the very Gomer of the book of Hosea.

People want to talk about Bible Prophecy but they don't want to talk about the moral and spiritual  demands it takes to really be and remain one of God's people. They want to talk about the Mark of the Beast, while watching some new TV show that subtly pushes the things that God hates. They want to talk about the antichrist, while steadily being deceived by him already.... and they can't see it.

"It is the conundrum of deception that the person who has been deceived
never thinks he can be or has been." - MSW

"It is easier to fool someone than it is to convince them they have been fooled."
- Mark Twain.

So if I talk a lot about issues in the world no one else is, it's because I am talking about things people, governments, corporations, powerful groups and intelligence agencies  are working pretty hard to make sure you don't see, or can't contextualize it into just what it means to you, your country and for we Christians, our spiritual and physical lives.

If you are looking for a site that confirms your misconceptions - this site is not it and I pray God it never will be. But if you are looking for one that will challenge you to look behind the propaganda to find out just what is really going on - and I am not talking about the crap on a thousand and one 'conspiracy' sites that are more often than not intelligence fronts -  then this site is for you.

Trump's Anti-Muslim Call

Mr. Trump is no stranger to controversy. As you know he called for a 'Muslim Ban' for the nation and wants to deny Muslims from entering the nation. The DOD has condemned this statement, which is rather rare. How do Americans view Muslims in America? This is a rather interesting read as it talks about the perceptions of ordinary Americans over Islam.

That article is good but know that it is a propaganda piece. As you read it the wiser ones among you will be able to see the subtle insinuations in the way the data is presented to denigrate those who for obvious reasons, have genuine reservations about Islam.

My view is rather simple. I do my  best not to discriminate on the basis of religion in my daily living. I have had Muslims neighbors and have lived at peace with them and if I have had any problems with Muslims in the past, it's because they did not like the color of my skin, not my disliking their religious affiliation.

Do Americans have a right to be cautious about a religious system that has spawned so much violence, terror, hate and destruction in the world? I think so. I personally work hard not to 'go there' with those kinds of feelings, though I admit, it's not always easy. But I think what will help a lot of Americans to better understand Muslims is this - Muslims are far more often the victims of Islamic violence and terrorism than Westerners are. When bombs were going off in Iraq during and shortly after the US occupation, they were targeted at Muslims, not Americans or Christians. Additionally, while Boko Haram has mostly targeted Christians in their attacks, Muslims are hardly immune to them either.

I think a high degree of honestly will go a lot farther than the kinds of enforced political correctness that is typified by Western political proclivities and reinforced in the mainstream media outlets. The last thing we want to do is to mistreat peaceful Muslims who live in America, many of whom are intensely loyal to the country. They should not  be singled out for special attention and surveillance. They should not be denied a place of work or an apartment. They should not be mocked because their women often wear a headdress. Truth be told, Christian women are encouraged to to the same in Church according to the Apostle Paul.

Islam is coming to America and all that goes with it. This is a decision that has already been made by the powers that really run America. The question is how will America deal with it - with multiculturalism or Pultculturalism?

One place to look at that has a strong Christian and western tradition and yet has a very large nnumber of Muslims is Russia. They have taken a different approach than the West's multiculturalism. The two names sound alike but there are fundamental differences.

I am not saying one is right and the other is wrong and I admit I have not read the actual decree signed by Putin. What I am saying is that looking at the rise of far right parties in Europe, the attacks on Muslims, the terrorism in Paris and San Bernardino and the climate of angst - the current policy of blind mulitculturalism is not working, nor is it likely to...

...unless your name is Le Pen in which case blind adherence to multiculturalism will help you bring in fascism to your country.

I have never liked the fact that in some places in Europe (UK in particular) you have whole cities and districts that no longer appear to even submit to British law. They are under a kind of Sharia. More here and here. Islam is more and more part of Britian. The Arab money has effectively 'evangelized' what was once one of the world's most steadfast Christian nations. America is under the same assault.

In Russia, they have a  different view - if Shria is what a person wants, they should go to a place where such a system is the law the land -  perhaps ISIS controlled Iraq, for example.

Russia has a different view of how to deal culturally with Islam. He has also has a different tact to take on the flow of Migrants to Russia, recognizing the potential for intentional and unintentional destabilization.

My point is  a simple one. The Russians have a very large Islamic population and did all through Soviet times and have done quite well dealing with Islam, despite some of the less fortunate episodes (Chechnya for example). We can learn a lot from the Russians if we turn off the racism and Russophobia.

The Russians are not the only ones with a successful track record with Islam.

Just because the west is preaching something, does not make it the best way. Too often, especially in America what is chosen as a path is what foreign nations are paying for and with trends in Islam with regards to Europe and the US, anyone with a brain and an internet connection can figure out who is pushing Islam on them.

Antisemitism At The Root of California Attack

One of the most uncomfortable truths about Muslims, most of them anyway - is that so many are quite Anti-Semitic. It's usually not violent, just that they hold some very uncomplimentary views about the Jewish people. You may all find this well done piece of interest on the subject. They don't want to be discriminated against and yet...

Hoots and shouts of denial may be heard far and wide, but the fact is Islam and Antisemitism are far too often linked at the hips.

Russo-Turkish Tensions: Russia Beefs Up Security In Armenia

Image Source: Wikimedia           

Russia and the Armenians are clearly concerned about tensions. Consequently Russia is beefing up its helicopters at an airbase that already has Mig-29's. It is home to Russia's 3624th Air Base. located just outside of Yerevan.

Also of import I think is that there is history between the Armenians and the Turks. A long bloody and not forgotten history. Namely the Armenian Genocide.

Armenian–Turkish relations have been strained by a number of historical and political issues, mainly the topic of the Armenian Genocide and Turkey's continuing position that it did not take place. Although there are currently no formal diplomatic relations between the two modern states, it was announced on October 10, 2009 that both countries had agreed to establish mutual diplomatic recognition. However those diplomatic efforts to normalise the relations initiated by the two countries with mediation efforts of Switzerland have faltered because of the non-resolution of the Nagarno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. - Wikipedia

It is hard to read this move's exact intent. It could be that Armenia is concerned about rising tensions along its border and wants Moscow to bolster defenses. It also could be that since Armenia is located along the Northern Turkish Border, Moscow may be looking at inserting  itself into Northern Iraq, just as Turkey has done, though that would require Iranian cooperation. I tend to think this is probably at this stage, just a move to comfort the Armenians who are understandably concerned about rising tensions with those who embarked on a well known genocide against them.

But more ominous for the US is the fact that Iraq may cancel its security agreement with the US and replace it with a new agreement with Moscow.

In other Syrian war news, the UN has urged Jordan to let 12,000 Syrian Refugee's who are now stranded into the country.

In a recent statement, the FBI director says that the Paris attacks were organized in Syria. Today, the DOD is claiming new efforts to cut off ISIS from the Turkish border. But details were not provided, nor was any evidence of these new 'efforts' given. Meanwhile, John McCain has basically told the DOD, that 'no plan, no money'. Clearly he is frustrated that right now, Carter has no plan.

Turkey's Human Wave Assault On The West

Well, someone has begun to dig behind the headlines and give us all a better look at why Europe is having such trouble with refugee's. This is a managed mass migration and some one has been getting very rich in the process and from some of the economics behind it.  This has a become a major business enterprise - Human Trafficking to Europe. The NYT describes the process where people basically cash in all they have to get the money - land, jewelry, etc some take on debts and pool money.

These people are desperate for a better life but get caught in this cynical game of power politics and underworld (human trafficking) profits.

I know it has become fashionable in some circles to blast these refugee's as some kind of terrorist scourge. That is hardly accurate. Yes, clearly some terrorists will pose as refugee's and yes the problem of Islamic radicalization is a very real one. It's a reality that these people who come to Europe will discover when they find out it's not a land of 'milk and honey' but of PEGIDA and the National Front.

Why Costco Is Amazon Proof

This is a very interesting story. It's not one of those Macro Economic issues I usually talk about but this Christmas, while I think will have strong overall sales we will also probably see a couple of major retailers go under. I am thinking Sears/Kmart for starters. What causes one to survive and the other to fail? That is not so easy to answer. But I think one of the major problems with many Big Box retail chains is and was the speedy expansion of their business model when they fist burst onto the scene. They load themselves up with debt to get as many stores as possible and then can't make the money the were hoping for.

One of my favorite little brick and mortar chains is Microcenter. It's where I get many of my electronics. But they don't have many stores. But each one is huge and their prices are very competitive and it's a rarity I go in and they don't have what I need at a very good price. Their selection and prices are better than the other Big Box stores. The difference is that they did not try and build a store in every city in America.

I think they will prosper. One of their major competitors Best Buy (BBY). I am not so sure. BBY has many years of life left in it. The problem as I see it is that if they are looking for consumers to get more money in their pockets to spend on gadgets,  I just don't think it's going to happen. More and more of working America's meager disposable income is going to be going to health care.

Take a good look at what is happening with the health exchanges (no spin zone).

This is part of the big squeeze on working Americans. I know this is not the narrative you are going to hear on CNBC and the WSJ. Their job too often appears to be to keep you as fully invested in the markets as possible.

Let's take a look at The Dollar Store (DG). Their sales grew by 7.3%.

Why  the divergent views on future outlook? I mean, both BBY and DG are both brick and mortar? Both have to hire real people to do the work. The reason is simple. People in a great many of America's metropolitan areas are struggling to make ends meet. Really struggling. I just think these facts are really lost on our leaders as they struggle to create false economic narratives to scare up votes.

Obamacare? I am not lashing out at the efforts to bring in solutions. But if there are not nearly as many people jumping into the system, it has less to do with the lack of information or access as it does with simple costs. You make someone choose between food/rent and health insurance and I will tell you which will win every single time.

At no time when I go to my local dollar store do I not have to wait in a long checkout line.

I just don't think the President gets this. The GOP don't get this either - they just want to rant at the President. Me? I want affordable health care and the only way to do that is to completely makeover the US medical system. There is one major problem with that. Anyone who tries it will certainly need considerable coverage in their 'health insurance'.

Burial insurance as well.

The medical establishment/lobby is a powerful and extremely wealthy political lobby and will do whatever it takes to keep their profits. If you want to know why generics were ruled out in so much of Obamacare, you need look no further than the Drug lobby.

Brutus: A piece of work that will make sick men whole.
Ligarius:  But are not some whole that we must make sick?
BRUTUS: That must we also. What it is, my Caius; I shall unfold to thee, as we are going to whom it must be done
- Julius Caesar, By Shakespeare

And the centralization of personal and medical data that Obamacare has created has been a magnet for digital thieves.

Higher priced retailers are gong to be fighting over a dwindling pool of disposable income as long as we keep Obamacare and our Medical establishment in its current  form. Because in no succeeding year from now will the Insurance premiums for Americans go down. Not while costs continue to rise and incomes remain largely stagnant.

No one wants to hear this because no one wants to fix this.

That's why I see many brick and mortar stores having trouble every year Obamacare and more specifically our entire medical system is left unreformed.

Bank Records Show Large Deposit To Alleged California Shooter

Right now we must keep something in mind. There are going to be significant efforts at narrative control after this massacre. The White House and FBI are working very hard to downplay any ISIS links and have made public statements to that effect. Local law enforcement I think look to be playing from another playbook.

Often when incidents like this happen there is a tremendous effort at cooperation between local and Federal authorities and the Feds control the flow of information to the public. The problem is that there have been many terrorist attacks on America that this Administration has covered up or waited till all the furor died down before they told us it was terrorism. Why? Dear readers I hate to break this to you, but its all about pleasing the Islamic states in the Middle East. They don't want to feed into a growing Anti-Muslim sentiment. So they try and hide these ties.

Yesterday I posted a link talking about eyewitnesses seeing three white men as shooters, instead of Muslims. I cannot vouch for the authenticity of these statements. I don't know. But what I can say is that nations like the Saudi's are very, very adept at public relations. They pay copious amounts of money to protect the image of Islam. In short, it is possible that these alleged 'witness' have created a narrative that helps place doubt about the fact that the shooters were violent Islamic fanatics whose organizations are often funded by the Saudi's.

I am not saying this is the case. I am saying that it's probably a somewhat higher possibility of being true than the incongruous reports of these eyewitnesses.

Turks Invade Iraq, Refuse To Withdraw

This is a dangerous and complicated situation. Why? While the Turks have 'invaded' Northern Iraq ostensibly to train Peshmerga forces in Iraqi Kurdistan. Why does not Iraq just go up and throw them out? Not so simple. Here is why not.

Because the Iraqi Army is forbidden by law from entering Iraqi Kurdistan, the peshmerga, along with other Kurdish security subsidiaries, are responsible for the security of the Kurdish Region. These subsidiaries include Asayish (official intelligence agency), Parastin u Zanyarî (assisting intelligence agency) and the Zeravani (military police)...

...The peshmerga arsenal is limited and confined by restrictions because the Kurdish Region is not an independent state. Due to disputes between the KRG and the Iraqi government, arms flow from Baghdad to Iraqi Kurdistan has been almost nonexistent, as Baghdad fears Kurdish aspirations for independence. Peshmerga forces instead largely rely on old arms captured from the old Iraqi Army during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, in which peshmerga forces were active. Before that, some weapons were also captured during the 1991 Iraqi uprisings.Following the retreat of the new Iraqi Army during the June 2014 ISIS offensive, peshmerga forces reportedly again managed to get hold on some weapons left behind by the Army. Since August 2014, peshmerga forces have also captured some weapons from ISIS.

After the ISIS offensive of August 2014, multiple governments decided to arm the peshmerga with some light weaponry such as light arms, night goggles and ammunition. However, Kurdish officials and peshmerga have stressed that they are not receiving enough. They also stress that Baghdad is blocking even small arms from reaching the KRG, emphasizing the need for weapons to be sent directly to the KRG and not through Baghdad.- Wikipedia

So what is going on here? Hard to tell exactly but note that the US a few days ago called for troops to be deployed to Iraq and the house wants to fund them.  The Iraqi's made it plain that the US was not welcome. They have had some bitter and horrible experiences with US troops in the past (like with US contractors gunning down Iraqi's) . Not only that - but these days, Shi'ites are more and more involved in Iraqi security operations. This is something that the US does not like as Iran and Russia are both viewed as foes and Iran has so far been the primary beneficiary of years of American blundering and folly in Iraq.

The Peshmerga forces lack the kind of solid command structure that is needed and this may be one of the reasons NATO (Turkey and the US) are now working to shore up the Peshmerga as yet another proxy army.

To me this looks like a move  by Turkey and the US to get a foot back into Iraq and destabilize it to cause Iran problems. Note that this piece makes it clear that the Peshmerga have been a long time and most trusted ally of the US. So if Turkey is down there training Peshmerga troops - you know who encouraged it and almost certainly is training them. This is a very historically important and politically volatile region and its history is key to understanding some of the underlying goals and struggles of the regions peoples as well as their motivations for supporting one group against another.

This is just another step in what may prove to be a very, very long and bloody war which in the end, no one will win except the undertaker and the doorman at the gates of hell.

Suspected Islamists Kill Christian In Sword Attack

NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – A Christian father of five in eastern Uganda who supported 10 children whose families had disowned them for leaving Islam was killed on Wednesday night (Dec. 2).

One of three men who attacked Patrick Ojangole at 9:30 p.m. reproached him for failing to heed a warning to cease his Christian activities before the Christian was killed, said a witness who was with Ojangole and escaped. Ojangole was 43.

Ojangole and the witness, a friend known only as Muluga, were about 15 kilometers (nine miles) from their home village of Kashebai after traveling by bicycle to visit Ojangole’s in-laws in Palissa when two Muslim women stopped them. The women were fully covered in burqas as they sat on the roadside.

“Because it was late in the evening, we thought they needed some help from us, so we stopped, and while we were still talking with them, a man arrived and started asking for our identification cards,” Muluga said.

Believing he was a policeman, they produced their national ID cards, and immediately two masked men appeared, he said.

“The two women immediately pulled out swords from their burqas and gave them to the men, and there we realized that we were in the hands of dangerous, armed men, so we had to cooperate with them as they forced us to leave the bicycle and then dragged us to the swamp close to the river,” Muluga said.

He reported that one of the masked men said, “Patrick, you have not heeded our warning to stop your Christian activities of changing our children to your religion.” Hence it is possible that at least one of the assailants knew Ojangole, or that Muslims he knew had hired the men to attack him. Muluga said they seemed interested only in Ojangole and may have asked for his ID card to ensure he was the one they sought.

“The attackers were not so harsh towards me,” he said. “Their efforts were directed at Patrick.” - Morning Star News Service

This amounts to about 25% of JPM's FI business. UK banks are looking to do pretty much the same things.

Dansk Bank: Russian Economy Set To Expand In 2016

A very interesting read and a welcome departure from the deliberately depressing and apocalyptic forecasts coming out of most western institutions. Dansk Bank (the author) does see considerable geopolitical risks ahead to their forecasts. Yet they see the turmoil settling down and they think that Russia will see a recovery of sorts. They also see positive movement in Rail Transportation as well as in private sector capital  flows.

Good reporting that appears free of the usual anti-Russian propaganda that permeate the US airwaves.

US Singapore Sign Enhanced Defense Agreement

Clearly aimed at China's assertiveness in the region. The agreement apparently now allows for US reconnaissance flights from Singapore.

Naturally China is not happy. But face it, China's actions these past few years would make even the most peace loving and accommodating nation rather nervous.  The Diplomat has their story here.  They also have more about the above referenced agreement here.

News In Narrative Form

A lot has  been going on and today, I am not going to spend a great deal of time on what looks like a major looming war in the Middle East. Turkey looks like it may close the Bosphorus Strait. Putin and Erdogan are at odds as Putin clearly exposed Turkey's (and others) very lucrative oil trade with ISIS. What this move would do is break a major long standing treaty, hem in Russia's Black Sea Fleet (map with red circle shows where the strait is) and would probably eventually provoke a violent Russian response. Erdogan is very angry that Putin exposed the 'family business' to the world. He is looking for some payback. I see a war coming and I think that while Europe genuinely wants to stop ISIS and wants to talk about the Future of Assad, Washington's goals are different. They want to provoke incidents that they hope will draw EU nations into a direct conflict with Moscow and enthrone what they hope will be a tamed down 'ISIS' into power throughout the region.

To America, ISIS is preferable to Assad. Right now, the Neoconservatives are utterly obsessed with Russia and will stop at nothing to 'get' Putin.  They see Assad's link to Russia as a way to get at Russia and that is one (but just one) reason for this obsession.

This is what happens when wickedness gets enthroned in a nation. They don't care about people and the
destruction their policies have brought on the region. They have lost all sense of proportion and become 'mad' with violence, hate, greed and 'winning' - even if it kills them. This is what has become of America's once vaunted 'national security establishment'.

Meanwhile, the proxy terrorist armies are fighting one another.

You know, I can remember sitting down to dinner one evening with one of these guys a couple of years ago and while this person was speaking to me the Lord was speaking to me quite loudly. He was telling me that if I continue on with that friendship, I would lose my anointing. He reminded me of the danger of consorting with treacherous men and told and repeated to me the verse about having no part in the unfruitful works of darkness and having no fellowship with such people. He had been speaking to me about it for some time but I could tell he was giving me a clear choice. I can remember driving home that night and talking to God about it and I told him that if that was really him. Set up a situation that I knew was of him so that I would know.

He did. Believe me, he did!!! Since then I have come to realize the wisdom of obeying God when he tells you. When he warns you of something  - heed the warnings.

I bring this up because in the first instance, God was showing me the deeper spirit behind this person the evil and the darkness that had overtaken his soul. I had just noticed the past few times his deep antipathy towards anything to do with Christ, his near mockery of my faith and his praise of other religions. This person though has always had a love of treacherous dealing with others people, their lives (literal) and entities. Another tell tale sign was that for the longest time he could never look me in the eye. If his hands were not busy deceiving someone, or setting them up or using his power in the intelligence community to entice another to a crime, he just was not happy. 

Now I recognize that in the Intel business, sometimes these things are done. But with this individual... I saw something darker but for a long time I did my best to ignore it and as I looked back on all of this I realized that there is a spirit associated with such people. It was kind of like a 'harassing' spirit. One that just likes to get in and gnaw at people and things for the express purpose of destroying and bringing harm. It was indeed a demonic influence over him and those like him and like a cancer I saw that it would grow with time and that his justifications for his growing antipathy towards doing right and honoring God's ministers and me personally would only grow with each new evil did he committed.

This is what America has been doing for some time around the world to many nations some pretty despicable things.

I bring this up because organizations like the one people like that part of are made up of people and those guys over there, for the most part are little more than the moral scum of the earth. Yes, there are some good guys over there who are really trying to do good but sooner or later they eventually go over 'to the dark side', leave or get fired. Yes, their job is essential and needed (or at least it was) for the security of the nation. But that simply no longer appears to be true. Too many of them think that by doing evil, good can come. The more evil they do, the more good they think will result. Hence America's covert support for the worlds terror organizations and Nazi's. 

Let what I just wrote be lesson be for someone out there who needs it. Take this in the spirit it is given. Don't wait till the sharp pangs of cold steel are felt in your spine before you do what needs to be done.

Withdraw yourself from evil influences.

I think that at this point in time, it will be very, very difficult to stop WWIII. I suspect the most likely time for it to start will be as the new Administration takes the reigns of power, regardless of party. The drums are already beating. But the good news is that some realize that a political solution is to be desired.

Meanwhile NATO has decided not to deploy Troops to fight ISIS. Brothers, I hope you continue to pray for the region with an emphasis on the people who are suffering, have been displaced, enslaved, wounded and otherwise mistreated by this evil creation of the regions powers and the US, -  ISIS.

In other news, Fukushima is still killing the Ocean and our government (at the behest of the Nuclear Power industry) refuses to test just how much is being released. One former Japanese government official makes it plain what is at stake.

The lack of the sense of crisis over Fukushima is in stark contrast to the gravity of the crisis. Fukushima is now undeniably a global security issue. The unstoppable contamination of the Pacific Ocean and the atmosphere with ionizing radiation from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear reactors is seriously menacing the West Coast of the United States.

Questions are now being asked if indeed it was these Muslims who were behind this attack in San Bernadino. Eyewitness accounts say it was three white men. You make up your own mind - I can only say that there are forces who operate in our government/intel community who are not above doing this kind of thing and have done so before. I don't know who is behind it but the narrative we hear in the media of proposed 'solutions' passed on by the major news organizations is often the best clue as to who may  be ultimately behind this attack.

In France, the far right have picked up considerable support. The National Front party led by Le Pen won 28% of the first round of voting. There can be little doubt that this flood of refugee's and the Paris terror attack were not pivotal in the results. This is part of a pattern I laid out to all of you a couple of years ago. I really did tell you this was coming on more than occasion. Now it is happening. I have also explained to you why these things were set in motion and where it is going to lead. The problem is real. A convergence of issues are now in play to give considerable political power to far-right, racist, xenophobic and racist elements. Then I strongly suspect once they have arisen to power their hatred will turn from Muslims to Jews and Christians and the two groups who have hated both (Nazi's and Radical Islam) will join hands in their evil work.

The good news on this front is that Germany plans on instituting Proceedings against the NPD, a far right organization in Germany. If successful, it would effectively ban the party.

The party is usually described as a neo-Nazi organization and has been referred to as "the most significant neo-Nazi party to emerge after 1945". The German Federal Agency for Civic Education, or BPB, has criticized the NPD for working with members of organizations which were later found unconstitutional by the federal courts and disbanded while the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, classifies the NPD as a "threat to the constitutional order" because of its platform and philosophy, and it is under their observation An effort to outlaw the party failed in 2003, because the government had a large number of informers and agents in the party, some in high position, who had written part of the material used against them. - Wikipedia

Meanwhile on the US propaganda-front two stories are of interest. First - four Whistleblowers of the CIA's drone program have had their story kept out of the mainstream news cycle. Additionally, the AP as usual is playing mouthpiece for the propagandist in the US government over NSA intel over the San Bernadino shootings. Do read that one, it's pretty good and shows you how propaganda works.

In Venezuela, the US  covert machinery can chalk up a victory in the near destruction of a nation's economy. Venezuela has raised the white flag and removed the 'Chavez revolution' from power. This is not surprising as things have gone very badly in Venezuela since Chavez died. Frankly while there was clearly a major economic warfare effort waged against Venezuela by the US (who made no bones about how they felt about the revolution in Venezuela), Maduro's own mismanagement was as much to blame for Venezuela's disastrous economic and social problems. Venezuela, like many other emerging economies (EM) were doing quite well when Oil prices were considerably higher. When those prices were high, the government spend a considerable amount of money on social services and helping the poor, something that Chavez worked at being a champion of.

But one of the biggest factors that I think brought down the government was the inability of the government to pay its bills. This was due to the lack of hard currency.  It has caused Airlines, Auto manufacturers and Soda makers serious problems.

My view is pretty simple and straight forward. America controls the price of oil via its major market manipulators. This is the world's worst kept secret and why others are working to end that monopoly. You can get a somewhat better understanding of this here. They key to understand is that yes, the Saudi's wanted to undercut the price of oil to hit the Shale Oil producers (kill the competition). They want to put them out of business. But for the time being President Obama is letting them do it. Why?

Because the low price of oil benefits his economic war on Venezuela, Russia and Iran. As long as he can keep the political winds at home under control (from Shale Oil producers who are in big financial trouble) he will continue his war. This has been the policy of the US for some time - destroy the economies of the emerging markets. Why? The typical reasons - anyone not under America's direct control is viewed as a threat and must be destroyed. Keep in mind that OPEC just basically just decided to turn the spigot full  blast. The Saudi's (the world's most prominent funder of international terrorism) is trying to force certain others out of the market. But the process is having a seriously negative effect on themselves and others.

The Empire looks to have won at least a temporary victory in Venezuela. As for the rest of the world? Well the one EM nation that will benefit and has is China. They import their energy and the lower the price is, the better it is for them.

But other Emerging Market Economies (EME)? They are in a tailspin. Commodity prices are falling and their currencies are in a funk.

Image Sources: BIS

India as well is feeling the pinch and is trying to obtain gold from its, temples and citizens. Different nations are taking different avenue's to shore up their economies.

Several EMEs stepped up monetary accommodation to stimulate growth, while others had less room to do so for fear of sparking further currency weakness and inflation. The Reserve Bank of India cut its policy rate to a four-year low of 6.75% in late September. At the end of October, the People’s Bank of China lowered the one year  benchmark  lending  and  deposit  rates  by  25  basis  points,  the  sixth  rate  cut during  this  easing  cycle,  and  reduced  the  reserve  requirement  ratio  by  50  basis points.  By  contrast,  the  policy  rate  in  Brazil  remained  at  14.25% following  an increase in July. 

Some authorities also intervened in currency markets. By the end of October, China’s foreign exchange reserves had fallen by over $450 billion from their peak in June  2014.  And  over  one  quarter  of  the  reduction  occurred  in  August and  September  2015.  Brazil  undertook forward-like  swap  and  US  dollar  repo  operations on a large scale to provide dollar liquidity and currency risk protection for the private sector.

Yes, the issues in the EME's are real and while many may try and deny it, the truth is that the turmoil we now see is part of a concerted effort at Economic Warfare against these new markets, who have 'chaffed at the bit' at US hegemony.

Right now as a result of the turmoil, Emerging Market Debt Sales are down 98%. Why? There is concern over the fundamentals of many of these economies and as a result it's getting harder for them to borrow.

The BIS quarterly report, as usual is excellent and provides a degree of honest technical reporting on the global economy that is rarely found in American reporting anymore. If Americans read it they might think twice about putting the bulk of their assets in certain kinds of stocks.

In more spiritually relevant news, we the UK has issued a report stating that Britain is no longer a Christian Nation. The Lady who chaired the two year report is calling that the UK be systematically 'de-Christianized'. She has an interesting pedigree and is Anglican. Well, despite who she is, the fact is -  report or no -  she appears to be right that the UK is not really a Christian nation any longer. The same thing is true for the US and our own President has said as much. Nations that earned the highest place in the world's power structure based on Christianity are now abandoning it. Yes, brothers this is indeed part of the great falling away.

Dear readers, there will come a time when it will take enormous courage to state that you are a Christian. The price will be very high. The Bible makes that abundantly clear.

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead,
or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God,
which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation;
and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels,
and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment
ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,
who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints:
here are they that keep the commandments of God,
and the faith of Jesus.

(Rev 14:9-12)

Do you know what I find of interest in this passage and the sister passage in Chapter 13? It is that economics are used for a system of religious oppression. Keep in mind that if you do not worship as the State (false prophet system) demands, they have the power to make sure you cannot buy or sell and eventually to kill you based upon your non-compliance with devil worship. 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.

Why do I bring this up? Three reasons. The first is the big push these days to do away with cash. I know I have talked about this quite a bit. But the push is getting stronger and stronger and one day, they are going to do it. Given trends today it will probably be a digital or crypto-currency that is linked somehow biometrically with each person who worships the image. Perhaps within this crypto currency and its decryption is the number 666. I don't know. But you know what? What has happened to those whistleblowers on the Drone program should be wake up call to us all on what they can and will do to those whom the state no longer finds 'desirable' and 'non-compliant'.

According to the article, no trial, no hearing. They just did it to these guys with no warning.

This is the future and one of the key reasons why they want to get rid of cash. One key reason is control. Keep in mind that these drone pilots are military veterans and patriots. They were punished for trying to warn Americans.

getting rid of cash? Yes, they are really talking about it and doing the ground work for this now in power circles - but the go ahead has not yet been given. It will take a major crisis or a few more years of preparation and propaganda before the world is ready for it.

But it is coming.

Yet I could have told these drone pilots an important truth that I think they are just now discovering.

The American people don't care. For far too many, they can't drink it, smoke it, screw it or otherwise abuse it or if it does not entertain them - most just don't care. That is why our leaders know they can continue to vaporize whole villages with those drones, not even knowing who is in them. No one in this country gives a 'you know what'.

 If you are going to sacrifice your lives for someone - do it for someone who will appreciate it.

That's a hard lesson to learn and one that many never will learn. But until the American people decide that what is happening to their country and the real world is more important than what football game is on tonight and what's going to happen in the next episode of what ever show they love, you can't help them. You might as well spill your blood trying to save pet rock.

It will appreciate it more.

Your sacrifices and willingness to expose the truth for them will earn you their hatred and contempt, not their love and respect.

There are some fine people out there risking life and limb for this once great land and I know that when they come home, their nation will probably lock them up and our media will treat them as traitors for trying to expose certain truths for them.

Yes, that is a hard lesson.

Ted Cruz Bucks NeoCons - Supports Assad Remaining

I find his comments interesting.I don't agree with them all - but I do find it interesting that he supports the Assad remaining. He says that dictators like Saddam, Ghadaffi and Assad are bad, but they were powerful check on the spread of international terrorism. I could not agree more. But I have been cautions about my support for Assad. Those dictators went for a reason. They were reprobate and for the most part evil. But given the tribal political and religious landscape of their nations, it was for the most part, the only way to maintain stability. There presence was unfortunate and troublesome and I am not going to blame just evil intentions for some of the efforts at regime change - at least at the beginning. I think there were really some noble sentiments to bring in genuine change and trying to bring some semblance of democracy in places like Egypt. But the methodology? It was formulated out of hell. A lot of people died in those protests with direct US help in killing them (to prevent a counter revolution once the Muslim Brotherhood had taken power).  You will note that this is the pattern done most regime change attempts -  Ukraine as well. Once the coup is complete, they go in and disperse the crowds- by any means necessary and always that means highly trained snipers who shoot indiscriminately to disperse the crowds that were intentionally drawn out to seek change by these same covet elements to begin with. These things are planned months, years in advance.

I stop just short of Cruz's comments though. I do think Assad should stay at least for considerable stabilization period,  2-5 years. But in the interim there needs to be a slow, verifiable and measurable move towards the liberalization of Syria. That includes allowing Assad and his cronies on any future ballot in any carefully monitored elections that are not interfered with by American NGO's and 'Human Rights' organizations which are secretly intelligence fronts that will be used to again destabilize the nation or thwart the genuine will of the people.  I am against the idea that the US should decide/dictate who is and who is not on any Syrian Ballot. It's the Syrian people who will have to live under it, not the President or the Neoconservatives. Let the Syrians decide in truly free and truly fair elections. That dear readers, is the American way. Nor will I accept the criticism of those elements in our government who try and make those of use who support these kinds of solutions as being somehow 'disloyal' or 'un-American'.

Keep in mind that Assad does have considerable support in his nation - more than our President does in our nation according to the most recent polls. The US at this point in time is firmly in favor of making sure Assad goes out and stays out of any future elections. I am certain that is coming from the regions Sunni leaders who don't like Assad's ties to Iran and have given copious money into the American political system. Keep mind that places like Saudi Arabia have far worse records of brutality against their own citizens and down right evil than Assad and America is best friends with Saudi Arabia So I am not buying this theatrical outrage our President and the Neoconservatives are giving us on Assad's 'brutality'. This is outrage like that of an actor on a Hollywood sound-stage, well acted and financially very well compensated.

My view is simple. A stable democracy takes time to build. Institutions that provide checks and balances do not spring up overnight. They take time to build and mature. America's Regime Change themes in the region have produced considerable instability, a major humanitarian crisis and have been the fuel that have fanned the flames of terrorism - the scariest part of it is that much of that fanning has been a deliberate policy of this administration as it armed covertly and overtly known terrorist groups.

The good news is that Kerry has slowly and carefully modified the US position on Assad. I hope that some kind of reality is beginning to set in in Washington and the financial opiates (campaign donations and other financial inducements) that have clouded its judgement are beginning to dissipate.

My guess is that members of Congress are now asking the pointed questions that they should have asked a couple of years ago and did not. Many people would be alive today and Europe would not be in the process of being destabilized as a result. Here is one lady, A Representative from Hawaii who also happens to be a Combat Veteran.

When the Presidents foreign policy is adrift or runs counter to America's long term interests, as this one's Syria policy has been, that is when Congress needs to step in and make itself heard.

President Obama has been taking horrible advice. I just don't know what planet his is living on when it comes to many of these kinds of decisions.

Meanwhile in Europe, the Danes have firmly rejected any further integration with the EU. While it's hard to say for sure what the reason is I would give a guesstimate as being the swarm of Refugee's and each individual states increasingly powerlessness to deal with the flood as Berlin sets the agenda on it and just about everything else in Europe. I also think the economic crisis of 2008 and the massive bailouts and the precarious state of the EU banking system is a far cry of the claims of eternal prosperity that was claimed with they first went into the EU. Take a look at this chart from the EU's official statistics site.

For most European's, Europe - an integrated Europe is not the answer the are looking for - not anymore. The the decline in living standards to the flood of Refugee's, to bailouts for nations like Greece - there is dissatisfaction with Europe and some states are turning downright fascist to keep their people in line with Germany's, and the IMF's dictates. The Euroskeptics are most definitely gaining ground as are the racists.

Pew research did a paper her that I think all of you will find of interest.

The Refugees? They and their plight will be used by politicians for both humanitarian and cynical purposes. But it appears that the war in Syria will produce many more. The ethnic cleansing in Syria is no joke. It is real and very, very troubling. So yes, I expect many more in the coming months. Will they get into Europe? I don't know the way things look I don't think most will get there. The powers in Europe realize just how destabilizing the current flow has been. I am certainly not against helping refugees. But you cannot take in this number in this short a time without very serious and socially destabilizing consequences. Here are some of the new things going on on the Migrant front in Europe.

Swedish Border Checks May Be Stepped Up By Christmas

Sweden Seeks to Close Bridge To Denmark To Stem Refugee Flow

EU Satisfied With Greek Migrant Policy Reforms

Turkey Rounds Up 3000 Refugees Trying To Flee To Greece

Morrocon Electrocuted On Border Fence  - Riots Ensue

Serbia To Increase Refugee Intake

Far Right Controls Anti-Refugee Demonstrations

Keep your eyes on these issues. They are all very closely inter-related and I am here to tell you that if you are shocked and dismayed well...

...you ain't seen nothin' yet!!

Hosea Part II

We left off last time when Hosea's wife bore him a son and called him Jezreel (Hosea 1:6).

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
(Hos 1:7)

The first six versus were spoken against the Northern Kingdom (see map in part I). This passage is by way of contrast. The Lord spoke words of judgement against the Israel but would have mercy on Judah. The contrast is stark. God was going after Israel but would show mercy to Judah. The kingdom of the North was steeped in all manner of wickedness and their kings were worse. But as for Judah, God was going to show them his salvation and it would not be by military force. This seems clearly indicative of the salvation that came to pass during the days of Hezekiah.

And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh. And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.
(2Ki 19:35-37)

In this passage we see just how the prophets word was fulfilled. I don't think any further comment is necessary.

Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.
 Then said God, Call his name Loammi:
for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.

(Hos 1:8-9)

The Lord God here essentially rejects the people from the North. Their sins were just that bad. Brethren, we need to forget about this false religion that preaches that all men will be saved and the people cannot go to far. The only things those doctrines do is entice men into greater wickedness. Here, God calls on Hosea to name his newborn son 'Not My People'. Why is this teaching so important? Let all of us who name the name of the Lord take note here and fear... yes, fear!

Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith.
Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches,
take heed lest he also spare not thee.
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God:
 on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness,
 if thou continue in his goodness:
otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

(Rom 11:20-22)

Such words are rarely spoken in Western Churches today, but as Hosea makes plain, a nation and people can go too far and those of us who have claimed the blessings of God should take note that when God moved against his people for their rebellion and wickedness, it was a frightful affair. Let's not have any of us getting on the wrong side of the Lord!!

Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea,
which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass,
that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people,
 there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

(Hos 1:10)

This prophecy was indeed fulfilled in the Church age. In that day, we gentiles who were called 'not my people' became sons of the living God, should any of is choose to accept the salvation offered in Christ Jesus. Let's see what the Apostles said about it this passage and theme

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
(1Pe 2:9-10)

Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
(Rom 9:24-26)
So this is one of those Church age prophecies that were hidden from the Jews of ancient times and even almost certainly from the prophet who spoke them. FYI, Osee is merely a transliteration of Hosea.

You know I am amazed at how we sometimes think that man has caught God off guard or sleeping. God knows the end from the beginning and already had a 'plan B' for salvation long before Hosea even prophesied. Plan B was the Church, to graft we Gentiles into the Holy Bloodline by faith and thus become children of the Promise should Israel fall into reprobation.

Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together,
appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land:
for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

(Hos 1:11)

Here the prophet speaks of the regathering. After the Babylonian captivity, both Judah and Israel fell under one King. But this interpretation does not seem to fit the entire sense of the passage. Zerubbabel is typically mentioned as the leader that meets the criteria. Yet it seems to this author that like the previous verse, there is a messianic fulfillment in view here. Here is how the JFB commentary puts this passage.

one head--Zerubbabel typically; Christ antitypically, under whom alone Israel and Judah are joined, the "Head" of the Church (Eph_1:22; Eph_5:23), and of the hereafter united kingdom of Judah and Israel (Jer_34:5-6; Eze_34:23). Though "appointed" by the Father (Psa_2:6), Christ is in another sense "appointed" as their Head by His people, when they accept and embrace Him as such.

out of the land--of the Gentiles among whom they sojourn.

the day of Jezreel--"The day of one" is the time of God's special visitation of him, either in wrath or in mercy. Here "Jezreel" is in a different sense from that in Hos_1:4, "God will sow," not "God will scatter"; they shall be the seed of God, planted by God again in their own land (Jer_24:6; Jer_31:28; Jer_32:41; Amo_9:15). - JFB Commentary.
So I think this passage refers to both (dual fulfillment). Additionally the day of Jezreel is of note. Here the world probably means to sow rather than to scatter. But this author notes that the great day of the battle of Armegeddon is fought in the valley of Jezreel and it is on that day that all Israel shall be saved under one king, even Jesus Christ. Jezreel, Megiddo, the plain of Estralon, as I said in Part I all refer to the same general area. I see this as both a reference to the day the might of Israel was broken in ancient times as well as to a future day. Note four things in verse 11,

They are gathered.
They have one head (leader)
It shall be a great day.
In the valley of Jezreel
Now note these passages in Revelation.

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. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
(Rev 16:14-16)

And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
(Rev 19:17-19)
Also consider again that is on that day that all Israel shall be saved when the Messiah comes and sets up his kingdom.

We will start Chapter two next week and perhaps expound a little further on this theme!

7 Dec

I will post most of this week updates that are in the private site. This is a typical week of information that I post solely for insiders.

US Is In Cahoots With ISIS

Readers here know this - the real story is not that the US is in cahoots with ISIS but that the US played a very instrumental role in its creation from the very beginning before most Americans even heard of it and weather you want to believe it or not has served US Interests.

This is how terrorism spreads. I am here to tell you that much of the terrorism in the world today is distinctly American. They are armed, funded, supplied and guided using the Military, the CIA and the State Department. From Al Qaeda, to ISIS, Al Nusra to even, yes Boko Haram. Whose arms came to them courtesy the Benghazi Scandal. For smarter readers, I think this may help you better conceptualize what is going on and why. Make no mistake about what ISIS is and what they have been doing for these past few years.

The US classification system, and the byzantine US Military/Intelligence Industrial Complex has in many ways become one of the key tools in the spread of International Terrorism. They classify the ties from the American people so the people don't know and terrorism can spread. Those inside cannot talk about it - they are forced to get on board the Jihad train or lose their jobs or worse, go to prison or be found floating in the Potomac.

This is what happens when people like this own your government (more here) and essentially dictate its foreign policy. Please, whatever you do - Don't let the US narrative fool you either - while it is true that certain elements within ISIS are disliked by the Saudi's - Others are not. Do you want to know why all of those GOP candidates were making all those 'tough statements' on the Middle East. They want that SuperPac Money and you do that by singing whatever tune the Saudi's and Qatari's want you to sing.

You can read more about Saudi Terror support here and here and here. You may find this one of interest as well.

The EU parliament has a paper here as well.

That's correct - if you want to know why the US is dropping tons of arms to terrorists in Syria it's because the terrorists now are well on their way to completely owning America along with the Chinese. They both know how to work our political system (with tons of money which both have in abundance) and which people are the key players in DC. They have a network that spans the nation.  They know who has the 'National Security'/Deep State ties to make things happen; who has the ties at DHS to keep Christian refugee's out;  they know how to engage in lawfare to get Christianity out of the schools and local governments and slowly carefully and as legally as they possibly can, bring in Islam.

This is what so many Americans just don't understand. It goes over their head. They say to themselves  - who would want to ruin all this?  I have my nice car, my big screen TV, my nice home by comfortable life - these things just can't be so and so they tend to turn if off and go back to listening to the false narratives coming out of the TV and flip on the game. They don't understand that today warfare has taken on a whole new level of deceit, treachery and subversion and that the key to its success lie in the target people's complete unawareness of its existence.

The nation is under a threat, but that threat is not from terrorists who come here in Toyota Jeeps with a Machine Gun mounted in the bay shouting praises to their god while they empty the ammo magazine on any passerby. No, the terrorists you have to worry about will get into the DHS, CIA, and DOD - they will get into the Bureau of Land Management, the Department Of Education, and yes, the Justice Department and the White House itself.  How will they do it? They will do it the same way Goldman Sachs, Exxon, Halliburton, Ford, GM and Merck do - they will buy their way in and dear readers, that process is well underway.

Some of you have not been happy that I have been so hard nosed on this issue not pulling any punches. Why should I provide cover by silence for those who are slaughtering and hacking up God's people? I shrink in shame from some of the cowardice of the so called watchmen who can't and won't say what needs to be said about ISIS and the years of support -  tangible, tacit and propaganda that America, Qatar and Turkey have given ISIS. These men don't love God first nor his people as themselves. They serve another master. - the one who protects the persecutors of God's people. May I never be numbered among such cowardly men!

If I have been a little monotonous it's because I ask myself what I would want a Christian to do if I were running from a madman who just reduced my home to rubble,  raped by wife, took her to a rape camp for his evil buddies and chopped off the heads of my two small children, while they radio the US for another airdrop of Ammo?

What would you want Christians in America to do if you were in that situation in Syria? Sit silent and pretend its not happening? 

So forgive me if I don't sound like so many others on the web. I am not in the pay of or connected with the CIA as some of your best known bloggers are - Christian and otherwise.

The devil does not have my tongue, my computer or my soul.

All those belong to Jesus.

I post the above only as what may seem like an unrelated preface to what follows below. But I assure you the two are very much related but rather than spell it out for you. I will let you figure it out for yourself.

An Open Letter To Politically Incorrect Bloggers,
Committed Christians, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street...

...And other peaceful and law abiding seekers of justice, truth and an America that practices what it preaches on the issues of freedom, justice, economic fair play, religious freedom, racial equality and peace.

While I will address this mostly to the people in Black Lives Matter (BLM), it goes pretty much for all who are named above and others as well who may not have the notoriety or may not have come into existence just yet. This is a cautionary letter and a letter to help you better understand just what you are up against and why unless organizations like yours change your tactics,  begin to look at the issues facing Black Americans with a far more strategic view, your efforts, however noble and well meaning, will fail. Guaranteed.

There is no way you can win against this system that is stacked against you unless you fully understand just what it is you are up against and I can tell you now that there are probably less than a thousand Black Americans alive today who really understand that. Yes, they know about racism - intimately - yes, they know that there is power behind it - and yes they know that most of those who are not Black don't understand just how hard it is being Black in America. But those are generalizations. Generalizations are nebulous and like clouds, cannot be used in a fight - at least not the kind of political fight you will have to fight in order to make sure your communities are not destroyed by a concentrated effort at economic neglect and outright economic warfare against you, just because you are Black.

Understand what I am saying here. I have been watching Black Lives Matter with awe and surprise. Finally the light has come on in Black America's collective mindset. For years I and only a couple of others have been trying to awaken Black folks to the Collective Slumber that the Black community was engaged in just because they had a Black President. They had gone into an almost comatose state while this President did almost every single deed that the Last President did that they decried when the President was White. Liberals and Black Americans who would ordinarily protest those polices would not say a word because the President was Black. In short he was the perfect mascot for racists to use against Black folks and others who wish to live in peace and use him they did -  at least for the first few years. He openly dissed the Black members in his own party and still does not like to meet with them. Under this President Black Poverty and unemployment have skyrocketed and a Black kid is four times as likely to be in poverty than a White one. Today, income disparity is a living crime.  Those are pretty sorry statistics for America's first African American President. Am I blaming him totally? No, of course not.

The fact is, the average Black American has never understood politics in Washington. They are clueless. I am not trying to be denigrating. It's just that until a person has the courage and wisdom to say 'I don't know' and listen to someone who does, they will always remain stuck in their misconceptions, deceptions and never know the nature of the beast they are, as a people, up against. I can remember having a conversation with a person just as Obama was getting inaugurated. They were hot and I mean pissed off at me because I did not vote for him. Finally when I got them to cool down I explained it to them in this way (this is very roughly gisted)

I know I too an proud an happy that America has seen fit to look past race and elect a Black President. I like what he says, I really do. He is most inspiring. Then the person responded '"Then why didn't you vote for him"? I had to explain to them at their very basic and rudimentary understanding of America's political system that if you look at where he got his money from you will see that those who have funded him have paid him to make sure nothing he promised will be delivered. I pointed them to the OpenSecrets site and they got very angry with me. That site is not partisan only covers who gave how much to whom. Facts at this point it time to this individual - they were the enemy. What mattered was that Obama was Black, little else.

Why were they so angry? I don't know but Black Americans in particular tend to be the most hostile to uncomfortable truths. They often get down right belligerent if you simply answer their question in a calm, informed and intelligent manner. They will insult, harangue, mock and otherwise try and to verbally and socially assassinate those who tell them the real deal. There are truths about our system and Black America itself that we, collectively as a people, are most unwilling to face. Comfortable misconceptions and delusions are more often to be preferred and are often defended with exceptional vigor by far, FAR too many Black Americans.

Then after he was in office, he broke almost every single promise he made. A couple of years later this person called me as said they would have to re-think their political preconceptions for they were most disappointed at the time.

Please understand this is not a slam at the President or to this individual. Obama had to deal with some horribly evil men and women during his tenure who threatened him with assassination in ways that only insiders understand and may not be safe to talk about, so I won't. No I am talking about a system and the President plays ball with the system or they remove him almost certainly with a bullet. I knew that when I saw who was giving him money back in 2008.

This is a system that has at its root a high degree of racist-fascism and has for a very, very long time. Many of you don't understand why I spend so much time on fascism and the Nazi's. I will tell you. Black America nor working America (of any race) will never understand their enemy nor win anything from this system until they get to the root of it. Now when I say Nazi's I am not talking about your everyday garden variety skin-headed, half wit with swastikas tattooed on his slick and empty skull.  Those are useful idiots that are paraded from time to time by other men who pull the purse or blackmail strings -  primarily as a media diversion - away from the REAL Nazi's.

No when you want to talk about the real Nazi's and their plan for Black America and any decent constitutional loving American you have to talk about those people who really run America. If you ignore this elephant in the room, you will have no chance of winning anything of lasting significance. You have little chance even if you do understand and begin to strategize accordingly  - and none of you don't. Right now, Black folks and most Americans still don't understand the nature of this beast and that it goes far, far beyond America's shores and that once they pass these new Free Trade Agreements nothing you can do will be able to help. Why Not? Because America's laws will be officially and legally subservient to corporate lawyers who for the most part won't even be American. Not even the Supreme Court will be able to overturn their rulings.

For those of you who really want a look at this Nazi Axis, its origin, how it escaped after WWII and where it want to take the world. I am not going to give you any readers digest version here. I have done that enough. I will however pass on numerous links here for those who want to know and are wise enough to say "I don't know about this and it may be of extreme importance if there is even a smidgen of truth to it." I know that won't be many of you. But for the few who want to know and don't just want a simpletons answer to these question -  I am going to give you a virtual library. But the data is here clearly spelled out not only by bloggers but by Federal Investigators, Journalists, Military Inquiry Panels, The Nuremberg Trials, Scientists and others who came in contact with Hitlers henchmen during and After the war. There is a paper trail, witness testimony and a long line of  incontrovertible evidence that Nazi's did not die, but live on in the halls of power in both Europe and America.

The first place to head over to his the Spitfire List. He has managed to get digital copies of some of the best anti-Fascist research there is. It's a resource that I cannot recommend highly enough. Get them, download them keep them safe before they 'get' the guy who runs that site.

The network of corporate control in the US that funded the Nazi's before and during WWII has not only remained, it has grown and reinforced itself politically and economically.

Why am I bringing this up? I will tell you in terms that I hope you understand. When Black Lives Matter has a protest against a cop shooting or goes to a University to deal with racial problems noted, they are hitting at the 'straw men' of this system. The cops? Even the Grand Jury's and Attorney Generals? Yes they are part of the problem, but if this system can be likened to a human body, BLM right now is fighting the toenails and cuticles around it of the system. The beast barely feels this. It is barely worthy of its attention. Why not? Because they know something that Black America may know theoretically but not in a way that will bring in change. What is that? The key root to controlling and destroying a people is economics. The power to lend, invest, borrow, control wealth and harness labor. Do you want to know why Black Cities are going under? It's the economics of the Reich to make sure this is the case. They must do this with stealth and they are quite good at it. Once they implement their plan they do it and continue to until caught. Then they apologize and when no one is looking, they continue doing it. This is why it is imperative that the major banksters never go to jail and that is why they have not and will not. Their power is key to the rising system of economic warfare on the systems racial and economic foes.

Brothers, its not just lending, its in Medicine, Education, Hiring, the war machine. This racism is entrenched. Go and find out how many of today's major drug makers were tied in or were part of the system that was the Reich. Again, Black folks don't get this - if they did they would have not elected Barak Obama or at least would have held his feet to the fire after he was elected. Why didn't they? They don't know and most don't want to know. They would rather be hostile with the truth teller and go back to watching BET and be ignorant. It is that ignorance that will kill - literally - Black America. These Nazi's mean business. They are racists and some I am here to tell you that some of these guys are the 'lock them up in camps, work them to death and gas them when your done with them' kind of racists. No, they will never say that and thankfully not all or even most of them feel that way.

But to those who are in this fight to win back a semblance of America's self and keep her from careening over the edge to more Malthusian forms of fascism, I have these words of advice - from one who knows the real deal and what you are really up against. Ignore this at your own peril because there are not many Black voices out here who know and have the courage to say these things. And most just don't know them.

First off. I will tell you now if you are not ready to be killed and jailed - stop now. I mean that. Don't go any further because if you are unsuccessful in your attempts to bring positive change to America you won't have to worry. - they will pretty much leave you alone as you provide entertainment value to them. But the more you force the political and economic powers in America to look at and fix the problems that I you and I have identified, you are going to go on a list. I will call it a 'ni&&er list'. Yes an offensive name but far less offensive than its reality.  But white activists can get on that list too if they try and bring in genuine, long lasting change to America that benefits the people of this once great land. Go back to the Civil Rights struggle. That is what they had to endure. They will do the same things again but with even greater skill and without those pesky warrants and courts. These days, more and more they just don't need those things. They can break into your home (as they did mine) on the flimsiest of pretexts or as a result of an illegal set up within the Intelligence or Law Enforcement Community.

Go back and see how they treated the Civil Rights leaders of the 60's and 70's under COINTELPRO. They played dirty and rarely within the law. LE and the Intelligence community have long worked hand in hand to suppress, oppress and otherwise destroy Black America. They will smear and even 'suicide' those who come against the illegal and racist activities of 'the system'. Today, the CIA is still doing media damage control of that CIA Cocaine scandal with pejorative or slanted articles in their media front organizations. But also some courageous people who told the part of the story the CIA and Justice Department did not want told.

Do some searches on COINTELPRO  -  sit down, grab a cup of coffee and READ. Understand what you are dealing with or be buried by it. A History lesson lost is a History lesson repeated. I ask you not to make the same mistakes so many did in the past. Some of those guys - there was not enough of them left to put into a coffin.

Consequently I urge you. Do not engage, threaten to engage or encourage others to engage in violence. If anyone in your movement begins to talk along those lines, get them out and do it immediately. If he is serious he will get you into trouble - if he is a Government agent sent to entice you to crime he will get you into trouble. Get them out and keep them out.

Second you are going into what can only be described as a kind of battle. There will  be forces who will do all in their power to stop you. They will blackmail you, try and set you up, embarrass you, harass you, try and turn friends, neighbors, employers and family members against you -  even though many of those things are not legal for them to do. Be assured, to some degree, they will try and  when no one is looking they will try again. So forget about all the warm fuzzies you hear about not worrying about the Surveillance State or what Snowden Revealed. Those surveillance  tools are not there for the terrorists in Iraq but for the protester (read terrorist) and activist (read terrorist) here in the US who they know will eventually rise up once they get to the nitty-gritty of their nefarious plans for us - and I just don't mean Black Americans either. They know you will one day rise up and that is why they must - it is imperative - must keep the surveillance state in tact. As I said, it is a key  foundation of any fascist system.

So be absolutely as stingy as possible with your data. I mean that. You will have to rethink all you do on the internet. Every single thing from Gmail to Facebook; iPhones to Yahoo - Posting resume's online and being active in any social networking site. Secure your computers when you are not using them. Use passwords to open anything digital encrypt some things if you must. The way spying has been so easy for the surveillance state is because you sign away so many of your rights the second you click 'I agree' on hundreds of sites, and on your mobile equipment. But if you give these Nazi's an inch they will take a mile. A person who does not take wise precautions is like a soldier in a night fight covered in LED lights flashing - "here am I, shoot me" in every language known to man, thinking he is safe. All he is is a target for enemy sniper fire. Many of you don't want to hear this because making those changes is hard and old habits are hard to break. The only thing I can say to you is this - if you are planning a protest and you are identified by the system as a 'trouble maker' (read Black person with a brain and a mission)  - they have ways of making you not arrive at your destination because somehow crack cocaine was found in your car and the cop had to shoot you while you were running away... with 16 bullet holes in your stomach from 5 feet away. I know no one is going to listen to this and that is one reason why I am certain these movements will fail. Dr. King had enough trouble back in his day and now, with all the tools this surveillance state has and peoples blind and naive use of it? Brothers, they know what you are going to do before you even get out of bed they know how long it took you to come to completion when you were mating with your wife. How do they know? They watched you do it.

My experiences? Let them be a lesson to you. One time, after one of the break-ins at my home, I called a repair guy. When he measured things and gave me an estimate, he was real nice. This was a very nice, young-ish Black man but was most curious about Malcolm X and Black militants. He would ask me questions and want to know things. I knew what he was and what he was doing from the beginning, though I don't think he knew that I knew, I just gave him the straight deal - no whitewash of my views on the failures of violence in the Civil Rights era and the success of peaceful protest. I made it plain that Malcolm's analysis of many of the ills that plagued Black America were spot on - but his solutions would have been a disaster for Black Americans and I could never adopt or encourage others to adopt those violent and militant solutions.

When the repair came back the second time his whole attitude had changed AND he brought a small child with him. I am not going to go into the details, but whatever they had planned for me - they thought better of it and changed their mind midway through. Then he opened up and explained to me how many years ago, he was set up in a drug bust. He did not do or deal drugs he insisted but an informant pointed to him and they beat the holy crap out of him. The cops nearly killed him. I then realized that he was almost certainly forced by others to set me up.  But you know what? Before the man even entered my home the Lord told me exactly what was going to happen, why and who (real name) of the person ultimately was behind it. He also told me that if I just listen to him and be calm, not only would all be well, but that those who were ultimately responsible (not this poor guy) would pay for it, dearly. For God's people in  God's service are jealously protected by the Lord.

Another repair time? The guy (different one) insisted on using the Bathroom off the master bedroom. I told him and pointed him to the guest John, but he just kept on moving towards the one in the Master Bedroom and with both of these people the issue of 'did I own guns' came up. I am not sure he was part of any organized attempt to spy on my home, I rather think not but still  - his activities followed the same pattern of crap I've had to deal with. I could not even go buy food or work out without wondering if someone was going to break into my home as they did more than once. I could not go to my local restaurant without knowing the bartender (I always ate at the bar) would disappear for about 10 minutes every single time I went in and about 30Min or so after, some stranger would sit down and start some kind of heated political discussion with me. It was like clockwork and the bar keep would stand there and listen carefully. I just had to stop going because I knew what the deal was and I was tired of it. You go to sit down and eat shoot the breeze with the guys watching the Golf channel and some guy that as 'Fed' written all over him crawls out of the woodwork and starts an argument.

So many of you wonder - yes, I was under a great deal of stress from summer of 2014 though mid 2015. I kept most of this to myself and did not feel led to let on the kinds of things I was going through. Though I am 85% certain that the surveillance started many months before then.

Why am I bringing this up? When the Feds want into your home, they will use people like this. Repair people and maintenance guys. They will even arrange to have your window broken out or your plumbing to fail so that you call one. They will then discover which service you called and then talk to them. This is how they evade the 'warrant' requirement.  This is particularly a problem in the DC area and I think it may be a counter intelligence tool used by other non-LE entities (like the DOD). But it works both ways. Gardeners and servants can easily be victims if they see something they are not supposed to. Even cooks and garbage men are not immune. Powerful men have been know to warn them, beat them and even kill them if they see too much.

Why did they have to go to such extremes with me? Because they were on a mission to 'get the nigger'. I was and have always been most law abiding, they watched and monitored me for a least a year, and could not find any damaging or illegal activity. Their answer? The set up.

I had to 'toss and turn' about posting these episodes I really did not want to. But ultimately I feel that for the sake of others -  activists Black and White, who want to try and fix things, you need to know just 'how low they can go'. Congress and the Judiciary Committees need to know, The Intelligence Oversight Committee's need to know and whatever post investigatory after actions report they have filed about this horrible episode of the misuse of Federal funds and personnel, I just don't think these kinds of incidents are in them. Understand this - I am not looking for 'revenge' or to air dirty laundry. I am saying this for the benefit of others who are and will work for change and that perhaps someone in Congress will clean out some of the rot that emanates from the Defense/Intelligence community as I think that is where this ultimately leads, rather than traditional LE whom I suspect may have come in and done their best to make sure that if there was a crime, they would handle it, rather than some of the more 'extreme' and illegal methods others have been known to use. In short, I suspect many wanted to make sure that my rights were indeed protected and that some self righteous and racist intelligence officials who were on a mission to rid the world of  another intelligent Black man would have to go through proper channels in order to do it.

I am letting you into a world that you will be entering involuntarily if you move forward with your movement. I am not saying you might face these kinds of things. I am saying that sooner or later, you WILL face these kinds of things, weather they are legal or not and no matter how law abiding and honest you are. There is a section within it that is criminal and answers to no one -  not the head of the Justice Department, not Congress not the President. They are answerable only to themselves and the powers that build criminal networks within Law Enforcement.

My point is this 'don't be a deer in the headlight' because he is soon to be roadkill.

When you have a peaceful event make sure everyone has cameras and plenty of pictures are taken - store them file them keep them for further reference - you may need them many months or years down the line. I mean that. Agents provocateur are one of the main tools the system uses against those who protest. Another tool is the agitator - they come in to incite violence. They just arrive uninvited and start smashing things up. Why? So that the cops have an excuse to use force to break up the protests.

Third trust is not the operative word to use. You will be watched and monitored 24-7. They will know where you buy groceries, where you work out, where you have a beer, where you like to eat. Why is this important? They will send people (Federal Agents)  in to befriend you. They will be real nice and pretend sympathy with what you are trying to do or as with me, try and find out if I was a militant or had a gun. I had people in my Condo Complex, at my Gym and at a local restaurant making a point of asking me if I had a gun. I have never had a gun and frankly don't like them. I believe FIRMLY in non-violence. But I am a Black man and a Veteran so they felt that they had to do the 'ni&&er check' thing on me. Can't have no Black folks with guns now can we? Besides, today it has become politically expedient to attack Veterans and make sure they don't have guns.

The government (Local/State/Federal) will work overtime to plant agents in your midst. The DHS, the CIA and the FBI and the US Military will do all they can to do it weather it is legal or not. They know that even if caught, they won't be punished, just told not to do it again and with a wink and a nudge - they will go right back to doing what they were doing. They will work hard to encourage you to buy arms and even commit crimes. They want you to go to jail and are going to work hard to put you there and for some of elements you will deal with - your actual innocence will be irrelevant.  When you are dealing with that kind of law enforcement is what I consider the criminal element within LE. They are in reality criminals who get paid to incite others to crime and are textbook co-conspirators in any crime that ultimately gets committed. But they never do time. They are free to entice and entrap others to do the same.

Be careful about who you trust. Take it from someone who learned this nearly the hard way. If they are in federal employ at any level - keep them out of your organization. The system will squeeze and even threaten them if they do not cooperate and become spies and Judas' in your midst when the going gets rough and the more success you have, the rougher it will get.

Fourth - while you should not bring in any LE people into your organization you should as much as possible cooperate with them. What do I mean? Make sure you coordinate with LE with your marches. I am sure you do but you may also want to do something that Dr. King did. He connected up with the DOJ directly. Why? Dr. King was very concerned about radicalization in his movement. There were a lot of voices who wanted violence. Dr. King stood adamantly opposed. He did not want to give Hoover an excuse so he did an end run around that racist and went to his boss (RFK) and expressed his concerns. They were able to get rid of the extremists in his movement. I bring this up for an important reason.

America right now is at war. It is a war unlike any other war we have fought in the past. It is a war where foreign governments will use people's movements like OWS or BLM to agitate and create social instability in the US. This has already happened. Powers even now are working overtime to create networks of future destabilization here in the US. They will use anything and anyone at their disposal. They would love to use BLM to start a protest and then get the Skinheads to plan a counter rally and watch the blood spill. These powers are good at it and are getting better all the time. Leaders in any movement like this must be vigilant against foreign infiltration of their organization. Nothing will get you on a hot list for Federal destruction faster than having a significant number of these kinds of people in your organization. This will raise red flags all over DC and you and your members will be dealt with, with far greater expediency than usual. Once that happens they will arrange a media smear campaign against you so that no one will care if you are murdered in your beds or not. They will whip up such hate against you that people, even other Black folks will  be anxious to help them do it.

So if you have people like that in your organization you would do best to get them out - get some contacts at Justice (not the FBI) or the White House and let them know who they are and what you suspect them of and why. That information sharing be a two-way street. They may have info for you along those lines that could be of use.  If you suspect them of being an agitator like that please save your movement and yourself finding out in a personal way some of the new legal tools they have to keep you locked up for the rest of the decade... without trial.

This does not mean you should trust anyone there. Simply put, when the chips are down and the system starts to get rough on you - those people you once trusted who work in that system will turn on you. I did not say might, I said will. They know that once the wheels of the state make up their minds your movement is to go, you will go quickly, suddenly and with no remorse and even less recourse. Keep that fact firmly in mind when interfacing with Federal Authorities, Black or White. But sadly from my experience, especially Black. I have just found that Black men in positions of power within America's power structures are usually put there to persecute, rather than assist their Black Brethren and be a deflector against charges of racism. I hate to make generalizations like this, but in this respect, the men are often much worse than the women. No this is not always true - but my experiences have taught me that it is and it is a pattern that is impossible to ignore in my daily living nor in this post. Be forewarned.

The key here is to keep others from hijacking your movement for purposes that are detrimental to the security of the Nation. But I want to caution you here. Our intelligence services know how to get such people to join your organization. They can (and do) entice bad people to join for the express purpose of getting you on a terror  or subversive organization list.  This is a complicated, and risky set up, but one that will work wonders if the powers that be want to believe it and I can assure you - they will  be full of glee with any bad news, evil reports that they can muster about you and your cause.

Fifth - Focus on just a few core issues. Don't get sidetracked. Deal with Poverty, discrimination in employment, lending and investment in Black communities and education.  Deal with America's collapsing Black cities.  Don't let political hacks get in and try and dilute your message with other peripheral issues - those issues tend to attract the wrong people and drive away the good ones. Stick with key goals with measurable results and until you get those results don't take on anymore.

Finally I wish you luck. I really do long for change. Why don't I help out? I know I could do a lot of good. I will tell you. I don't want to burst any bubbles here but I think honesty here is the best policy. I don't like lost causes. I am not going to join another one. I am not going to waste time and effort working with people who should have awoken to these problems 10-15 years ago and only now can find somewhat limited support in their own communities and are often too unwilling to listen to 'grey hairs' who have been there and that and didn't get the t-shirt but got the kick in the ribs instead. My experience working with Black Americans is that too often they just don't listen to reason. This battle will be hard enough once one gets handle of the deeper problems to be dealing with leaders who lack the willingness to fight the real enemy rather than the straw men the enemy sets up for us to waste time, resources and energy in hollow, meaningless victories.

This is not pessimism. This is realism. I am not going to fight the Russian Army with a baseball bat, two blind men and a deaf-mute, no matter how well meaning and sincere they are. We would all be dead before sundown. I am courageous, but not a fool. Again I am not denigrating the efforts of these activists, rather I am saying that the kinds of change that is needed is going to have to be further reaching that just a few protests over a cop shooting and a racist University President and must be done by people more politically and historically astute than we now have. These problems so far dealt with are little more than straw men. Nor am I looking for symbolic victories like taking down the Confederate Flag as some kind of 'reconciliation' for all of those men and women gunned down in a Church - as though flags kill people, rather than racist madmen who are fed a Whopper with Cheese when the cops catch him by the cops

I don't see victory with this movement. I wish I could, but I don't. These old eyes have seen some things and this much I know. Black America's problems have as much to do with Black America as it does with the virulent and ardent racists who reside at the top levels of the US political and economic establishment. I can't and won't fall for the trap of always blaming 'Whitey' for the stupid things Black folks do. There has been too much of that as there has been too much racism as well.  The biggest downfall I see in Black America are twofold.

First she was too late in recognizing her state and listened to some pitiful leaders whose job it was to misdirect Black America and keep her sleeping on her way to the economic doldrums. These corporate moguls are very far along with their plans and right now, BLM is a minor nuisance  to those in power. BLM can and will  be swatted away at the political expedient time of their choosing. Ten, fifteen years ago, we had a chance. Now - only a miracle can save us from a fate that I hesitate to even put in a post.

Second - Black America's problem as far as I am concerned is Spiritual. We as a people have ceased to give honor and praise to God. Keep in mind that it was the Christian and peaceful Dr. King who got success with his movement, not the militant Malcolm X. It was God who gave us a victory that could easily have been destroyed by others on BOTH SIDES who wanted a race war. If Black America is in an economic funk today and can't get its act together on so many fronts, they need to look to where they went wrong. It's the spiritual malaise that is throughout the nation, but much of it particularly acute in Black America -  that is the real issue. Aids, homosexuality, violence in our communities, the death of the Black family (and millions of kids being raised without a father) Black Abortion statistics that would make Hitler happy and in some places just open hostility to intelligent people and debate. I am not here to spin these issues to take the blame off of where much of it belongs. A people whose behavior more and more demonstrate that they have rejected the God of the Dr. King's of the world and follow after any pied pipe with a pretty face and fake hair that comes on TV.  We as a people I think had a special place in God's eyes and he had high hopes for us as a people, particularly in times like this. Instead too many of us have spit in God's eye with our open acceptance of those things we know he hates.

But I think of the words of Hosea and I cannot help but think of Black America today.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
(Hos 4:6)

The knowledge God is talking about is not book learning, but knowing God and his ways. But Black folks as with so much of America do not want God. They want sin and to revile God and those who follow him. I know. I follow him and you have no idea the kinds of crap I get from Black folks who turned on him. Sin -  that is America's problem, not just Black America's.

By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
(Hos 4:2)

Brothers for me - no more lost causes. Let Black folks get back to basics and know that if they do right, God will be there for them - if not, nothing they do can save them for the arm of the Lord is mighty and will deal with those who love to walk contrary to what is right, just and good in the eyes of the Lord.

Now, go back and read the very first part of this post and I think smarter readers will better understand how the two sections are related.

2 Dec 2015
Brother Mark


I have been going through the Minor Prophets these past year and right now I am in the middle of Hosea. I have gone through most of them already. As time and events permit, I will post a few of these comments on the prophets here. This is the first section I did on Hosea. God willing, I will post the next section in a couple of weeks.

Hosea (Part I)

While the markets shake out their problems and China continues its descent, the world heads into serious trouble from masses of immigrants into the EU, protests, wars, terrorists, etc. I want to get back at least for the next couple of weeks to the minor Prophets.

Before we begin, I want to say this to all of you. I know at times my prophetic writings can seem a bit 'old school'. But I am an old school Christian. That old time gospel, the one that used to be preached is the only one that saves souls. This new fluff that spends more time being socially relevant than spiritually useful may make us feel good, but it does not save souls. Christ came to save souls and the only way to do that is with the eternal gospel and following it. Those who attempt to change key teachings in this late hour need to be looked upon with the greatest suspicion. Yes, reform is a good thing, when one reforms errors and sins. It is a bad thing when key and basic doctrines are jettisoned for a collective spiritual pillow... that puts us into slumber and moves us away from God's truth and his commandments.

So I realize many people do not like to hear the old time gospel. They want new teachings that confirms their sins, errors and unbelief. I cannot give you that and I will not give you that. I can only go back and remind all of you what Paul said about those who started preaching another gospel. Like Paul, I am no man pleaser. I never have been and never will be.

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
(Gal 1:6-10)

Paul was dealing with  those who were preaching another Gospel. One that said that Gentiles had to go back and follow the old Jewish Law. Consistently the Church has had to deal with satan's envoy's who would move us away from the simplicity of the gospel. They are everywhere, in the Catholic Church (leadership), the Baptist, Lutherans, Church of Christ... the devils most successful tactic against the Church has never been direct attack, it is always been infiltration. This is one of the reasons why the Church is having such trouble today, the devil infiltrates, neutralizes the spiritual power of the gospel by changing it and watering it down and then you have an impotent body of people who go to Church to receive meat and instead they get spiritual poison; the seek light and to be awakened, and instead they get darkness and opiates to induce to spiritual slumber.

People do not want to hear the old time gospel. Why not? The world wants it's sin. It wants it's sodomy, war, torture, it wants to mistreat the poor man, lie, kill and steal. It wants its sin and the old time religion speaks firmly against sin. All sin, not just certain ones that offend us personally, but all sin that offends the most high.

So I know this site is quite different than others. It's why the devil works so very, very hard to shut me down. But praise the Lord, I am still standing!! I can only thank God for that and the prayers of my readers. I thank you. So keep up the prayers, things are likely to get very strange in the world in every key realm in the near and medium term. So stay awake, be prepared and do as the most High God tells you to do. Stop worrying about what the lost world thinks about you. You just do what God has commanded you to do and if you love and honor him, you will do just fine!

Now, lets get to Hosea!

The word of the LORD that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
(Hos 1:1)

Hosea was a prophet. A prophet is God's spokesman and ambassador. As such he has probably the toughest job there is. Hosea is the first of the minor prophets as given to us in our old testament. He prophesied in the days after Israel had broken apart into to separate Kingdoms. He was born in and was ministering to the Northern Kingdom. There is not much know for certain about his life, but some believe that he was of the Tribe of Ruben and may have been the decedent of one of the Princes. The Son of Beeri may be Bura. Here is what Clarke says about it.
The rabbins say that Bura was his father, who is mentioned in the Chronicles, and was prince of the tribe of Reuben at the time when Tiglath-pileser carried some of the tribes of Israel into captivity. But if it be so, Hosea must be said to be of the tribe of Reuben; and a native of Beelmeon, beyond Jordan. This prophet lived in the kingdom of Samaria; and his prophecies for the most part have a view to this state, though there are likewise some particular things which concern the kingdom of Judah. - Adam Clarke

This was written long before the Babylonian exile. So who were Hosea's contemporaries? Amos, Isaiah, And Micah. Here is a small screenshot of his contemporaries from a great little chart from http://www.zionministry.com/.

Because so little is know about him we will not spend a lot of time talking about theories and other impressions of scholars. Let is get down to Hosea's specific task and word.

The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD.
(Hos 1:2)
Now brothers, when I get to complaining about how hard my job is, I need only go and look at what God required of Hosea and learn to cease murmuring!! He was told to go and marry a hooker, a whore of the children of whores.

How many men today would do that if God so commanded? I am often reminded of the difficulty of the life of any prophet. God speaks to him and usually it is diametrically opposed to what the religious establishment expects or wants to hear. What they would rather hear is that they are doing right, God is with them and that all is well, great blessings like ahead, just keep sinning and ignoring God and they will be blessed. That is what they want to hear. Instead, in this very commandment to the prophet, God is symbolically telling his people that they are whores (children of whoredoms).

Now many commentators make a point of saying that Hosea did not really marry such a woman. Yet the Lord made it abundantly plain what the prophet was to do. Go marry a whore. Expositors can try and wriggle out of it, but the fact is that God gave Hosea a horrible job but one that he had to fulfill if he was to do as God commanded. Here is what K&D commentary says about it,

A woman of whoredom, is a woman whose business or means of livelihood consists in prostitution. Along with the woman, Hosea is to take children of prostitution as well. K&D Commentary

Yes, such a command goes against our sensibilities today. We don't want to hear about how God commanded such a thing. We all seem to have this illusion that our lives are to match up with some self-centered 'perfect life' scenario, rather than one of a 'divine life' scenario. This commandment was an offense to the religious establishment. But so was so much of what Christ did when he was here. Hosea's job was to take this woman who was a notorious strumpet and prostitute and marry her, taker her kids (from previous copulations) AND have kids by her!

Not an easy task. But note something here. This job is in direct contrast to the commandment that he gave Jeremiah. The two prophets ministries were different and were given opposite commandments on Marriage. Here is what Jemimah was commanded.

The word of the LORD came also unto me, saying, Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have sons or daughters in this place. For thus saith the LORD concerning the sons and concerning the daughters that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers that bare them, and concerning their fathers that begat them in this land; They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth. For thus saith the LORD, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the LORD, even lovingkindness and mercies.
(Jer 16:1-5)

So, here we have two different prophets with two very different commands on Marriage but different only for themselves in relation to their specific ministry.

You know, I never married. I have said this many times yet some readers still think I have a family. I don't. But I don't think God ever wanted me to marry. I think if I had, I would be divorced by now. It's rather funny because many years ago, Moms and I were talking about marriage and you know what she said? Let me paraphrase it. 'No, Mark you did the right thing, marriage is not for you, if you were married, your wife would be nagging and harassing you perhaps even sabotaging your work, telling you to get off the computer, stop all that writing, her friends are talking about her (and you) behind her back. Get in here and clean out the garage, mow the lawn, take me out to dinner, and when you were outside she would try and destroy your computer'.

Moms never married again after she her my Dad divorced. Having looked around and seen all the marriages fall apart of those around me, the bad ones that are still together, the fact is, I have not seen one that is truly 'happy', except among older folks (70's and up). I just don't think America's throw away society and the shallow mass-media driven character of the populace is conducive to a healthy happy marriage. Expen$ive divorce? Yes. Happy Marriage? No.

Moms knew. She had many problems in her marriage. I saw some of the trouble my mother had to go through in hers. I think subconsciously it was at that point I decided I needed a wife like I needed a high impact  piece of metal in my head delivered from a revolver.

But did not Paul say this? While today no one wants to listen to the great apostle's exhortation, the message was clear for those who wanted to serve Christ. It is better not to marry.

But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
(1Co 7:32-35)

Paul's teaching, which he is careful to differentiate from a divine commandment is that it is better not to marry. Now Paul was almost certainly married, though we don't who to whom, for how long or when she died. We know that he probably was because he was a Pharisee and there was tremendous pressure on them to be married. But for the most part of his life, Paul was single, or lived so. This very interesting little piece may be of some help to you in understanding Paul's marital status.

Marriage is a sacred institution. So why would God command his prophet to defile that institution by marrying a 'two dolla no holla' ho? I say this only half in jest, because we are talking about the lowest from of woman from a sexual purity standpoint. Yet here God is telling his servant to go and marry her. Why?

This marriage was to be a spiritual parable lived out in the life of the prophet to the people of Israel. God was going to show the people something in this marriage. Often God would have his prophets do hard and shocking things to get the people's attention. This is one of the more extreme instances of it. Hosea had a tough job... marry a whore and have kids by her. But when God calls us to service, he demands that we yield to him, lock stock and barrel. God's purpose in this 'unclean' (by most standards) marriage is hinted at in the above passage,  "...for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD."
(Hos 1:2b)

So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.
(Hos 1:3)

Gone is any complaining by the prophet, no excuses as to why he can't. He did not run from this task nor did he sulk after having accomplished it. Hosea rather humbly submitted to God's command even knowing how much he would be reviled by the others, particularly the religious establishment. No, he just did was he was commanded, probably understanding what the Lord was going to convey to his people. No, Hosea was not like Jonah, nor like yours truly (!). Nope, he just did it.

And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel. And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
(Hos 1:4-6)
Here he gives these offspring names.

The first is Jezreel. What does this name mean?

From H2232 and H410; God will sow; Jizreel, the name of two places in Palestine and of two Israelites: - Jezreel.

Here is how Albert Barnes put this, it's pretty good.

Call his name Jezreel - that is, in its first sense here, “God will scatter.” The life of the prophet, and his union with one so unworthy of him, were a continued prophecy of God’s mercy. The names of the children were a life-long admonition of His intervening judgments. Since Israel refused to hear God’s words, He made the prophet’s sons, through the mere fact of their presence among them, their going out and coming in, and the names which He gave them, to be preachers to the people. He depicted in them and in their names what was to be, in order that, whenever they saw or heard of them, His warnings might be forced upon them, and those who would take warning, might be saved.  - Albert Barnes
The rest of the at commentary is also most instructive. I will not include it here, but you can find it here. Simply put the name of this child was to be a reminder of the sin of Jehu. In this reminder God made a plain threat and promise to end the Northern Kingdom. Some expositors think this means just the end of the family of Jehu reigning over the North. That ended with Zechariah (see chart below and 2Ki 15:8ff). Other see it as the later date when the kingdom was indeed overthrown. The phrase bow of Israel almost certainly means the military power of Israel. God was going to break it.

The Lord would do so in the valley of Jezreel. This is also known as the  great plain of Esdraelon. It is also known as the valley of Megiddo, where the Battle of Armageddon is to take place. The name Jezreel itself means not just to sow, but has the connotation of scattering and as such God is using the name of this child from this union to show Israel what he plans to do with them - scatter them before their enemies.

And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away. But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
(Hos 1:6-7)

Hosea's wife bears him another child, this time a daughter. Her name was Loruhamah
לא רחמה
lô' rûchâmâh
lo roo-khaw-maw'
From H3808 and H7355; not pitied; lo Ruchamah, the symbolical name of a son of Hosea: - Lo-ruhamah.

The name is pretty self explanatory. No pity, no mercy. God was quickly running out of both. He was going to take them away. The translation of that last phrase is somewhat questionable in the KJV. So Let me use a couple of others so you get a better sense of what the Prophet is saying. The Literal Translation says this.

And she conceived again and bore a daughter. And He said to him, Call her name No Mercy, for I will not again still have mercy on the house of Israel; but I will completely take them away.
(Hos 1:6)

The Douay translation says this

And she conceived again, and bore a daughter, and he said to him: Call her name, Without mercy: for I will not add any more to have mercy on the house of Israel, but I will utterly forget them.
(Hos 1:6)

But the Darby translation says this.

And she conceived again, and bore a daughter. And he said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah; for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel, so that I should pardon them.
(Hos 1:6)

The Contemporary English Version says this

Later, Gomer had a daughter, and the LORD said, "Name her Lo-Ruhamah, because I will no longer have mercy and forgive Israel.
(Hos 1:6)
The problem is in the phrase used.

נסה    נשׂא
nâśâ'  nâsâh
naw-saw', naw-saw'
A primitive root; to lift, in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, absolutely and relatively: - accept, advance, arise, (able to, [armour], suffer to) bear (-er, up), bring (forth), burn, carry (away), cast, contain, desire, ease, exact, exalt (self), extol, fetch, forgive, furnish, further, give, go on, help, high, hold up, honourable (+ man), lade, lay, lift (self) up, lofty, marry, magnify, X needs, obtain, pardon, raise (up), receive, regard, respect, set (up), spare, stir up, + swear, take (away, up), X utterly, wear, yield.

I think both connotations can be safely inferred from the passage.

We will continue on with Hosea as time and global events allow!

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.

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's 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.

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

Justin Beiber: "Go To  Church"

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 S
