Eyes On Russia: Watson's Economic And Political Report
Please remember, these reports are how this site/ministry supports itself!!
This 29 page report is the latest in my Political and Economic reporting. It focuses on Russia, where she is heading and why she is behaving the way she is on the world stage today. For many her actions are a mystery. I personally do not find them so, but rather see a calculus in her most every move, from Iran to Syria, China to the US - there is purpose to where Putin is taking Russia.
These days of economic crisis have overshadowed events in parts of the world that certainly command our attention. From Syria, to China's internal troubles, to the ongoing economic crisis, to various crisis in Africa like Mali and the Central African Republic, events in Russia often get overshadowed and are not discussed with much depth or frankly intelligence. This paper will attempt to show its readers where Russia may be heading over the next few years. Why she has taken a new more activist approach to events in places like Syria why it has taken a 'middle' approach to Iran's nuclear program and where Vladimir Putin plans on taking Russia and if he will have the political clout and vision to bring those plans about.... continues
Can The Gov't Turn On Your Camera And Mic?
Two Senators On Intel Committe Contest Administrations Misrepresentation
Today, Senators Wyden and Udall wrote to General Keith Alexander urging him to correct inaccurate and misleading statements in the NSA's recently released fact sheet on Section 702 of Foreign Intelligence Survelliance Act (FISA).
"In our judgement this inaccuracy is significant, as it portrays protections for Americans' privacy being significantly stronger than they actually are," wrote Wyden and Udall. - US Senate
They are in a position to know. They sit on the committee and have seen the classified directives and regulations.
Der Good German's In Die US Reichtag
Truthdig does a scathing report on Feinstein and the whole farce of 'Oversight' The second part of oversight is 'sight' and when you don't want to see abuses, you never will.
NSA Whistleblowers Tells of Wiretapping On Obama, Senate, Congress, Etc
Don't try and tell me this woman was doing her job. I heard her yesterday telling listeners (on Democracy Now) that she saw no evidence of abuse!! A warrant with every American's name on it who made a phone call on Verizon and she can't see any abuses? She needs to go... yesterday.
I will tell you what really troubles me. It's that Jewish Americans like Feinstein and Levin (who helped passed the concentration camp bill, the NDAA) are always pushing for laws that mimic the very Nazi's that killed 6 million of their own people. Of course we need to be secure and deal with the scourge of Islamic fanaticism (terrorism). We don't need to put on our jackboots with the swastika engraved on the sole of the shoes to do it with.
I am not questioning their patriotism, just their historical memory and loyalty to their own people as well as their solidarity with those who died in Hitlers camps. Rather than 'Never Again', they seem to be saying "One More Time, but let us fire the ovens".
Please understand, I am not trying to offend anyone, especially those who lost loved ones in that horrible time. It's just that they only thing you are going to get by mimicking Hitlers laws and that is Hitlers crimes. This nation has stood up to all manner of enemies and wars for 240 years without bringing in the Nuremberg laws. Why should we allow a few mentally unstable Islamic nutjobs destroy the very things that make us great?
There are far more reasonable and less expensive (and lucrative) ways of doing security that these relics in the Senate are unwilling to seriously contemplate.
There's no money in such rational contemplations.
There is a deeply embedded criminal element in the intelligence community and if you wonder why the Intelligence committee's were sleeping while all of the spying was going on. This will explain it to you.
I keep telling my readers that this is far deeper and more evil than you are aware of and this nation is the target of people who hate you with a perfect hatred and hate our government with a perfect hatred. They see America and her freedom's as their number one enemy. Once you see this vid, you will get a better sense of where this nation is really at.
There is a follow up report here.
Listen up here. There is a legal side to to all of this spying and an illegal side to it.
I am not saying this program was part of the illegal spying as I think that some security entities may have been actually looking for something back in those days (within the confines of the Patriot Act). Namely candidates, leaders and justices who may have been turned by foreign powers or were leaking info to others outside of those cleared.
But significant, criminal activity damaging to the National Security can and does take place in programs that shall we say are deliberately hidden from all elected officials. Sadly, I cannot get into the mechanics of how or why its done.
Long-term bonds first began plunging this year in Japan. Then, the crash spread to the U.S. and abroad.
And just this past week, it began to accelerate in a big way. In fact, the price of U.S. Treasuries have sunk so rapidly that 5-year notes suffered their worst one-day percentage drop in recorded history, as their yields surged. - Money And Markets
The Fed and the Chinese are taking away the punch bowl of easy money. I should not have to tell my readers this. I said that one day this would have to happen. Everyone knew one day this would happen. Now it is happening and everyone is shocked.
What is happening in China though is much more significant. I am not going to belabor this as I talked about it some in the insiders update. The fact is, the Global economy is in considerably worse shape that it was back in 2008 when it collapsed and forced the very money printing that they are now being forced to withdraw, just to keep the banks open.
If the west wants to fix its economy, it must let the big banks die. If they don't find a way to do that, we will see a deep recession, major social unrest (look at Europe) that will slowly make its way here. This won't happen overnight, but when it comes there will be economic 'perplexity'. They won't know what to do. In my economic crisis report I talked about how one EU nation avoided the plague that is hitting Europe and is now growing and prospering. How did they do it?

I Am Out Of The 'Convincing' Business
I think often people want to debate with me when they write as though I want to convince them of something. I am not in the convincing business. Once I tell someone something just once, my job is done. I am not interested in debates arguments or accusations. You want to argue? Go do it in a mirror.
For years now this site has warned its readers of the pervasiveness of spying. Now I get people whose clearly (after reading what they say) don't know anything, regurgitating what they read on CNet or Computer World about security. If you really want to know about security, the last place to look is one of the large magazines that get their advertising from the high paid beltway bandit companies (Microsoft, Oracle Adobe, Intel, etc). They are only going to repeat what they heard the NSA told them and what they NSA told them is not in your best interest.
It's in their best interest.
I refuse to try and convince anyone of anything if you don't want to listen. But if you are that hard headed, please keep my name and email address out of your smart phone and facebook accounts. You are not only ignorant, but DANGEROUSLY ignorant and are a danger to everyone you communicate with on the internet.
Pause and consider.
Why did the Iranians seize the smart phones of Christians in their raids? To find out where the other Christians were! They do the same things here, ask the Occupy Wall Streeters, whom this administration targeted with its massive police state powers.
One day probably not for another 5-10 years or so, it will be an NSA secret data rape at facebook. Why? To find out where the Christians are!
"Lord, Protect me from the hard-headed, ignorant Christian who is a danger to himself and everyone around him!!"
This is not a joke. Many of you will literally piss your pants when YOU are detained for your faith and wonder why they arrested you and suddenly find you have no rights anymore. All the rights you were more than willing to rob from others are no longer available to you.
Some... too many of these kinds are Christians are like a soldier who is on a secret/stealth night raid and suddenly decides to turn his boombox on full blast and launch a couple of flares just before the group reaches its target.
He just killed everyone in the group.
Who are they really working for? It is no secret that the Iranians had placed spies in many Churches that were undercover and undetected for many years who then disappear when after the raids happened.
Be wise as serpents but harmless as doves, not dumb as rocks.
The country is beyond salvation. Its gone to the dogs. The best you can do is protect yourself from the evil day that is coming and from those who feign brotherhood but are secretly working for the enemy.
Debt Slaves Are Waking Up, Occupy Wall Street, Brazil And Elsewhere...
A lot is happening these past few weeks and truth be told this is about the 99% against the 1% and the way that debt is manufactured and repayment of that debt is forced on the working classes, bringing in austerity, joblessness and social unrest. This is about control. The riots in Brazil, Turkey are part of a long like of unrest as the people begin to revolt against a system that is rigged against them.

Leahy Introduces Bill Sunsetting Surveillance
This is an uphill battle. But one that must be fought and some common sense provisions put in place that really investigates terrorism, not dragnetting everyones data under the guise of fighting it and storing it away to be used when we have a Chinese purchased President who will relax the sharing provisions to anyone and everyone for some cash and use that data to crush dissent.

California Issues Order To Bitcoin
The Golden state that should not be called the bankprupt state tries to bully a new transaction system. The Feds have issued their public face opinion on Bitcoin and I think we are going to see a death by a thousand cuts as US regulators level all manner of accusations against Bitcoin, some true some false. The simple fact is it isn't regulated and currency cannot be created out of thin air as it is with the paper in your wallet It is a competitor to the centralized and criminalized banking system and naturally, they don't like competition. But closing it down will not be easy.
Are there cyber criminals and money launderers operating on Bitcoin? Yes. Are there cybercriminals and Money launderers operating in Wall Streets biggest banks? Yes. What is the FBI doing about that?
When was the last time you saw a Wall Street executive taken out in handcuffs by guys in blue jackets with the letters FBI on them?
The isssue is not cyber-criminals/money laundering/Terrorist funding but competition. Keep that in mind going forward.
NDAA: Wants Indefinite Surveillance On Americans
A new bill would set up yet another spying agency to spy on you and me and just about anyone, anywhere at anytime for any reason because as usual the wording is so broad and the words so subjective they can me made to say just about anything to anyone who wants to spy.
Let me say this because it is important. This war on Terror is mostly a scam. We are creating more terrorists than we are fighting in our wars. This is a self feeding money machine that is keeping US contractors fed with billions of dollars of taxpayer money that the US simply just doesn't have anymore. These bills are merely pork disguised as National Security policy.
When you see new agencies set up always rememver they wll get a new building (built by contractors), new equippment (purchased from contractors) and workers (most of whom are contractors). This is nothing but pork they hope Americans are stupid enough to let pass while they tell you scarey stories of terrorists waiting to rape your children. More people die from slipping in bathtubs that they do from terrorism in the US. We are swatting flies with a $100 million hammer...

Loopholes and 'weasel words' (ambiguous, subjective, unquantifiable words) in the law allow them to get around the law without technically breaking it.
(image source: Wikipedia)
I will spend a little time today talking about this issue because so much is at stake. The possibility of a larger regional conflict, the possibility of Neighboring nations like Lebanon and Jordan being reluctantly drawn into it, the possibility of US intervention and the possibility that Iran and Russia begin to take moves to counteract or at least stir up as much trouble as possible in Syria.A Map of areas of territorial control can be found here.
Reuters has an interesting and relevant story today on how moderate rebel groups are being overtaken and replaced with hard like Islamic groups. According to the story, they is is a pattern seen throughout the nation. Moderates are replaced by radicals. No one knows (or is saying) who is really behind them but as the article points out, the great fear is that they come to control large swaths of a Syria that become part of a larger Islamic authoritarian state that imposes Taliban/Al-Qaeda style rule over large parts, not just of Syria, but also parts of Iraq, the parts of Turkey that can be pried away from it after a period of political instability as well.
These Islamists are very clever and clearly have learned many lessons from places like Iraq and Afghanistan on how to fight and win and send the Americans home with their tail between their legs. But no one really (says they) understands where they want to take Syria. What they know is that they are the ones who are now the driving force behind this new 'rebel' movement.
Clearly the US wants to arm some of the more moderate groups but then clearly there is going to be some tension between the Islamists and the Moderates. If not now then certainly later and given that many of the Islamic fighters are not even Syrian, their fight for 'freedom' has other motivations that just brotherly altruism. They are organized and have their 'cause' to fight for.
So when the US goes in ostensibly to arm more moderate groups and propel them into a more energetic fight against Assad, will those new weapons the US has shipped them wind up with the Islamists when these fighters desert the moderates as is happening now? I am sure this question has been asked and cannot be answered other than with the vagueness of 'hope'. Arming people you don't know is a highly risky business and is fraught with the very real possibility, if not probability that we really only wind up arming the Islamists via a logistically circuitous route.
- US arms Moderates
- Moderates lose some battles
- Moderate fighters see Islamists winning battles
- Islamic recruiter comes and steals bands of moderates over to Islamists,
- Moderate fighters take US arms with them.
The real question is, what are Obama's goals in arming these 'moderates'? That has not been clearly articulated and that indeed is troubling. Arming them is one thing, having a quantifiable and realistic 'desired outcome' is quite another. Is it to halt the advance of more radical elements? Is it to give moderates more say at a future (hopeful) negotiating table? Is it to steer the fighting with an armed force that is more amendable to Washington's wishes? Is it to halt any further defections to the Islamists? What is realistically possible? Could we begin to see more factional infighting between rebel groups that ultimately relives the pressure off of Assad while the moderates and Islamists hack each other to bits?
I also think one of the more important things we can do is to beging to focus much more on Humanitarian operations. As much out of a sense of helping those in need, but in that the Islamists are able to gain significant support in many areas because they provide much needed supplies to those who need them. This is a powerful tool to show that the they care and are indeed concerned for the people and not just their ideology. In any insurgency the battle for hearts and minds is key. Go back and read your Che and your Mao... the Islamists have.
"Above all, always be capable of feeling deeply any injustice committed against anyone, anywhere in the world. This is the most beautiful quality in a revolutionary." - Che
It is a tact that Islamists have been using for years, real humanitarianism as a propaganda tool. It's hard to argue with a full fridge that was once empty and a child that sleeps at night and isn't crying any more because it is no longer hungry.
Source: WikipediaIn closing, I think arming these rebels is bad business. I was never in favor of it and was never really in favor of ousting Assad. I never liked him much but one thing his nation stood for was religions tolerance and moderation. The same thing could be said of Saddam's Iraq. Each were brutal strong men with strong anti-American leanings but each ruled their respective nations with an Iron fist. Saddam, with all of his glaring and often exaggerated faults, made Iraq quite prosperous moved it forward economically and unlike many nations the US supports (like Saudi Arabia) he allowed Christians to serve in high and trusted Government Posts (like Tariq Aziz). His motto could be summed up, "get along with one another or perish in a torture chamber". Yes this is a vast oversimplification but people knew the cost of stirring up trouble in Iraq.
When these nations in the Near and Middle East have these strong men in power one must always consider this important fact that I think is lost on US policy experts. When you have a nation with is factionalized along strong tribal/religious lines, the potential for deep civil disorder and even conflict is a very real threat. The only methodology that this has been successful in countering this is with a strong central government that can show extreme brutality when it must. Otherwise chaos and disorder can become a threat to internal stability and states can fracture. Look at Iraq today... car bombs go off regularly now and the nation is probably going to split apart one day with the Kurds in the North doing its own thing regardless of who recognizes the nation of "Kurdistan" or not. You want their oil, or to transport arms through their territory? You have to talk to the Kurds. Who knows which band of crazies takes over the rest of Iraq. The Islamic nuts or the western oriented kleptocrats.
Understand, I am not defending brutality, I hate it. I really do. I am merely pointing out the harsh realities of governing in many of these places. So Assad, love him or hate him, whoever replaces him in a united Syria is going to have to be just as brutal, if not more so as he consolidates power. In short, what I am saying that a long term bloodbath in Syria is going to be the foreign policy result of Obama's attempt to overthrow Assad.
It was a mistake in my mind to attempt to overthrow him. He is bad but what follows is likely to be very much worse...
With US tax dollars having installed them into power.
Snowden: Smarter Than They Give Him Credit For
Guilty Pleas In Ongoing Judicial Corruption Investigation
Earlier this week, investigative journalist Clarence Walker published a Chronicle feature article, "Sex, Lies, and a Georgia Drug Frame-up," about how now ex-Murray County Chief Magistrate Judge Bryant Cochran allegedly attempted to have local woman Angela Garmley framed on bogus drug charges after she accused him of seeking sexual favors in return for helping her in a pending court case.
CJ helped his boss, the judge, by planting dope for him. Now he's looking at prison time. Two Murray County sheriff's deputies have already pleaded guilty to participating in the frame job, which consisted of a handyman employed by the judge hiding methamphetamine on Garmley's vehicle and her subsequent arrest by a deputy alerted to be on the lookout for her vehicle by a sheriff's captain who just happened to be the judge's cousin
Missle Downed TWA 800 Says Federal Investigator
This is a no-brainer. Anyone who knew anything could see the government was lying about what happened. You got eyewitnesses telling you what they saw and a gag order placed in investigators... you could do the math.
These kinds of things have been happening a long, long time. Attacks by foreign powers on US soil that have done tremendous damage. The US government usually assists the terrorists who perpetrate this acts and won't tell the people what is going on and becomes the terrorists chief co-conspirator, emboldening them to commit even bigger acts of terrorism, again on US soil. From Massive Chemical plants that explode, bridges that collapse, Massive eco-system changing oil spills to military armories blowing up to scores (literally) of US oil refineries that have been blown up over the years. Our government has spent too much time and effort protecting those who attack us.
Makes you wonder who they are working for doesn't it? You can see how successful the current policy of protecting terrorists is in protecting American lives and property is here.
Our leaders have asked for all of those powers to spy on Americans yet when it comes to foreign sponsored terrorist acts, they don't do a thing. They let it happen and then lie to us about the cause.

A Warning From History
A lesson that many of today's young people don't understand. They can't fathom a system like this. They don't realize that it did not spring up overnight. Rather, was introduced in increments over time. People got used to one level of evil and then were taken to the next. It is the 'boiling frog' approach.
Pre-Arranged Lies And Purjury
These days the NSA and our intel community are doing their best to tell us of all of these so called terror attacks they say they foiled. Its not hard to see their motivation to exaggerate and even lie about it. First it was 20 attacks foiled... now its fifty... lets see how tall the tall tales grow!! Tens of billions of dollars of contracts are at stake and many of these top officials have their eyes towards working at one of these beltway bandits (contractors) when they retire at three times their current salaries. So naturally, they want to keep that gravy train heading in that direction.Canada Slowly Being Gobbled Up...
But none of these officials have any credibility. When the Nations top intelligence Chiefs can go before Congress and lie under oath and have nothing happen to him, you know the system is operating from a high degree of criminality that has Congressional approval and or connivance. Now they just expect us to believe these fairy tales about all these attacks they stopped?
They are looking to use the bogey man of 'mystery' attacks they claim they thwarted to drum up support for their Himmler-esque spying system. The plan? To scare the ignorant Americans (ignorant by virtue of the intel communities obsession with secrecy) of attacks that never even existed so that they can keep that cash flowing to the likes of Booz Allen, SAIC, Intel, Microsoft and a host of other contractors that probably have massive multi-billion dollar contracts with the government's intelligence community... to which some of these 'less than truthful' officials have probably been promised a place in management or even a place on the board when they retire.
Nazi SS leader
If they will lie under oath, they will surly lie to CNN and MSNBC about these 'attack' myths. Nothing any of these guys say can be trusted, not on the House or Senate oversight committee's, not the military officers who run these programs and not the civilians, many of whom are stockholders (often illegally) in the companies that contract with their respective agencies.
This system is rotten to the core and I am not 100% certain is under the full control of the the US and its elected representatives. Others have been able to weave their way into key positions of trust to 'run errands' for foreign governments who have put hundreds of millions of dollars into our election system and to candidates in very high and trusted (top security clearance) positions. Such individuals can steer collection efforts or stop intelligence collection on certain foreign targets and rather than target foreign nations they target the American people and its corporations instead, whom these foreign nations view as their primary target. If they can't stop collection on Nation xyz, they can reduce the money to do that collection or put that section into a low-level, low tech, low priority administrative division and see to it no one reads their work.
This has happened. Some intel folks who were following all of the foreign money heading over to our elected rep's.... they had their money and jobs cut right from under them. Why? Top people in the intel oversight committee's and elsewhere (cabinet level) got wind of what they were doing and, being in the pay of foreign governments and criminal enterprises, did their bidding and in the process protected themselves as well. Now you know why it is a crime for certain intelligence officers to even talk to a Congressman in an official capacity. Some of these officers want to tell folks what is going on and can't. Laws like this helps keep the criminality firmly in place and forces... you guessed it... whistleblowing.
Now perhaps you get a better understanding WHY there is such an obsession with secrecy. They are not protecting sources and methods or even you but rather are protecting some very serious criminal and even treasonous malfeasance in the intel community and at the political level in our government. They under NO CIRCUMSTANCES want you to know just how far this has really gone and don't want you asking too many questions. This talk about protecting us from terrorists? It's 10% reality and 90% baloney.
You might figure the answers out for yourself if you started asking the right questions. So expect a flurry of activity to try and shift the national focus to something else in the weeks ahead.
NAFTA's real agenda is just now coming into view, quietly and under the media radar.Did Bernanke Just Get Fired?
Yes, but this has been coming for some time. Ever since Jack Lew took over at Treasury the handwriting could be seen. Mr. I think Mr. Lew see's Bernanke's policies as disastrous. They have been and the nick name 'Helicopter Ben' is apt. It's just that the helicopter only hovers over Wall Street, unloading its bails of money to the 'poor banker' who needs to upgrade is Lear jet to the latest model. Mainstreet, on the other hand, gets cooked up statistics about jobs being created that don't exist. That has been Obama/Bernanke's economic policy the past 4.5 years. Is it going to change? We will see. I think some powerful folks are putting pressure on the President to make the recovery more even and let Main Street grow as well, (economic heresy in some quarters, where the thinking is that the plebeians/working people are to be crushed, not aided) not just the big banks and government contractors.
We will have to see how this all shakes out, but all the signs of Bernanke's coming departure have been out there for astute readers to see.
Himmler And The First Death Camp
(links are relevant for today... click on them!)
In March 1933, less than three months after the Nazis seized power, Himmler set up the first official concentration camp at Dachau. Hitler had stated that he did not want it to be just another prison or detention camp. Himmler appointed Theodor Eicke, a convicted felon and ardent Nazi, to run the camp in June 1933.Eicke devised a system that was used as a model for future camps throughout Germany. Its features included isolation of victims from the outside world, elaborate roll calls and work details, the use of force and executions to extract obedience, and a strict disciplinary code for the guards. Uniforms were issued for prisoners and guards alike; the guards' uniforms had a special death's head insignia on their collars. By the end of 1934, Himmler took control of the camps under the aegis of the SS, creating a separate division, the SS-Totenkopfverbände.The Business Of Disease
Initially the camps housed political opponents; over time, undesirable members of German society—criminals, vagrants, deviants—were placed in the camps as well. A Hitler decree issued in December 1937 allowed for the incarceration of anyone deemed by the regime to be an undesirable member of society. This included Jews, Gypsies, communists, and those persons of any other cultural, racial, political, or religious affiliation deemed by the Nazis to be Untermensch (sub-human). Thus, the camps became a mechanism for social and racial engineering. By the outbreak of World War II in autumn 1939, there were six camps housing some 27,000 inmates. Death tolls were high. - Wikipedia
For further reading...
Many Americans will think these things cannot happen here. That American citizens cannot be treated like that. Before you say that ask yourself this question. How many Americans are in America's network of Camps without trail or hearing?
How many did you say?
I didn't hear you....
The same thing is happening today. The recognition of this as a disease and the known cause of much of it (GMO's... no you are not hearing about it and probably never will in the MSM) shows you how the artificial creation of one disease can lead to massive profits. Big money for the creator of the disease and big money who prescribe the 'cure'.

Is this America's Future? What was once one of the most prosperous cities in America now a rusting, rotted-out metropolis? The link is just some very sobering facts about just how bad things are in Detroit.
I ask all of you to take a look because America must get its economic house in order and begin to deal with realities or this will be the fate of New York, Chicago, Dallas, LA, Seattle...
And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
We Must Love And Forgive Our Enemies
The Pope speaks from personal experience. What do I mean? Listen up.
Pope Francis has tasters. They taste his food for him before he eats it. Recently, two of his tasters got poisoned. The Pope has decided to change the way he does things and sadly, those changes are not going to enhance his personal safety.
He has learned to forgive, even though someone tried to kill him again and again... and are still trying to. He has been advised to wear body armor and take precautions. I don't think any Pope has survived so many attempts within his first 100 days in office.
But he takes it on the chin and "keeps gettin' up", as my mother used to say. He appears to have a really deep faith and has truly put his fate in the hands of God.
Those of you who think you are so holy and like to sit in judgment on him and the whole Church, could you forgive someone who tried to kill you? Your wife? Your kids? Tell me it would be that easy to do and I will tell you to get in your prayer closet and ask forgiveness for telling me something you know isn't true.
Pray for the Pope and that he can clean out the rot in the Church. He is really trying and if more people would pray he might be able do it. But know this. The devil would love to destroy the Church and hold it up to contempt and derision, while God would want it to come to repentance and reform. So when you pray - don't pray in accordance with the devils goals ("God destroy the Church and everyone in it but save me, the holiest man on earth"), but rather pray that God's will be done.
And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.If God could send (the oh so reluctant) Jonah to the people of Nineveh, who were not even of God's holy people (Israel) at the time, how much more do you think God would do for 800 million Catholics? Christ is the good Shepard, he goes after to find that which is lost.
And he spake this parable unto them, saying, What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
Put that pointing finger away and get on your knees (physically and in your heart of hearts) and God will hear you when you seek his Holy face. Pray that the darkness in the Vatican is exposed and dealt with and that the light of God's truth, Jesus Christ and the Gospel becomes the center point of a reformed Catholic Church.
Israel: Two State Solution 'Dead'
Hardly news... I mean really. This was never a realistic solution. If world leaders really want to begin to ease the problems of the Palestinians then real economic investment will help coupled with a campaign of discrediting and economically neutralizing the hardened Islamists in the West Bank (and Gaza) and their umbrella organizations, no matter how well known.
I am not going to blame the Palestinians for all the troubles. But the solution starts there and it starts by bringing in economic prosperity.. jobs; education and jobs; tolerance (religious and ethnic) and jobs; arts/creativity and jobs. As long as the youth feel they have no future, extremists will have fertile ground to sow their hate and violence and gain new cadres of fighters and suicide bombers.
I am not the only one saying this. Israeli officials, Palestinian officials, as well as fighters (and terrorists) on both sides of the fence... they all say the same things. You want peace? Then you must bring in prosperity and as long as you have parties on both sides who are profiting politically and economically from the misery of the Palestinians, you will never get anywhere at a peace table.
Kerry's Syrian Airstrike Plan Shot Down
A very interesting read and just goes to show you how out of touch Kerry is with the realities of the 21st century Military. Like too many older Senators like McCain, Feinstein, Rockefeller and of course Kerry, they often hail from the 'Hawk' side of things and still live in a world that no longer exists. They are old, out of touch and frankly are more than a little dangerous. Twelve years of war have taught the Kerry's of the world nothing. He doesn't get it and I just don't think someone who is as old as he is and set in his ways ever will.
We no longer command the kind of military power we had in the 1990's and even if we did, it is not as important or as relevant as it once was. War's face has changed tremendously as has our military capabilities. Two wars have left an indelible mark on the US military; its troops and equipment. Like the John McCain's of the world, Kerry wants bomb someone to show our 'power' but neither have any kind of realistic follow up plan. The foreign policy of these two men reek of the 'arrogant American'... always telling someone else how to mow their lawn when his own backyard is full of weeds.
The President is wise to tread very carefully in Syria. Not just for the sake of the Middle East but for our own military's sake. We need time to fix some deep internal problems of which the sexual scandals are only the tip of the iceberg. We have Terrorist cells operating within it, people who are stealing weapons... a lot of weapons and as I have posted in the past, the officers who lead it are not of the highest caliber.
Finally, I am at a loss to understand what men like Kerry hope to gain by installing these violent fanatics into power. Look at Libya and the mess it is in. All those weapons that wound up in that Mali Al Qaeda uprising... many came from Libya. The Libya that the US installed into power, that is. Has anyone put on their thinking cap and asked what these fanatics would do with the Chemicals in Syria or is that concept too complex for someone who has spent over a decade in the US Senate?
I really wonder what brand of cigarette these guys are smoking and if the active ingredient is nicotine or something more hallucinogenic.
I think this needs to be said as well. Assad still has a lot of support in Syria. More than Western Media organizations let on. Many Syrians may not like him much but they are not buying these foreign paid, foreign armed and foreign controlled freedom fighters either. Would you like someone paying armed fighters to overthrow America's government? Look, I may not be a fan of our President and criticize him a lot, but it's for Americans to criticize him and if necessary, to elect, re-elect or remove him. Not the Russians or the Chinese or Islamic terrorists. I would deeply resent their interference as I think most Americans would in our nations affairs. I think that is where a lot of Syrain's stand... If the Americans are for Assad's removal, many who are teetering would back Assad for that very reason; "if the Americans want him gone, then perhaps it's better that he stay". Think back to the cold war days and ask yourself if the Russians wanted a US President gone, that fact alone would cause most Americans to want him, no matter how unpopular he is, to stay.
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Nathalie and I want to express our most heartfelt gratitude for your prayers and intercession on behalf of her brother Richard.Other Whistleblowers Speak Out
Yesterday, Richard was in intensive care with liver failure and severe hepatitis. His physicians advised us he had a very short time to live and were ready to stop his medications as they were no longer working. He was incoherent, barely able to eat or drink, and was literally at death's door.
But praise God!!
Our prayers were not only heard, but answered. Richard amazed everyone last night by not only sitting up, but also getting out of his bed in a very lucid condition and eating a full meal!!
He is now expected to transfer from ICU this afternoon. This is a miracle!!
However ... we have learned that he is now slipping in and out of lucidity. We therefore ask your continued prayers and intercession on behalf of Richard.
Please pray he will turn back to the LORD in sincere repentance, that every wicked, unclean spirit he has allowed into his life will be scattered and that he will be filled with the Holy Spirit so there will be no room for even more wicked spirits to return.
May the LORD richly bless you all!
Nathalie and Michael Heyman
If you really want to understand why our system almost forces people to blow the whistle on fraud, waste, abuse and criminality in the Intelligence system, read this one. It is very good and gives those on the outside a better understanding of why serious and fundamental reform is needed starting with some new blood on the Intelligence Oversight Committee's.
Let me say this as well because it is very pertinent. One member on one of the Intelligence committee's has been/was in the pay of the Chinese. I kid you not. That is the kind of crap going on behind the scenes you are not hearing about. You think these guys are protecting the nation, but in reality a few (thankfully just a few... at present) are using the shield of secrecy to betray it. That is one of the real reasons they don't want you to know what is going on. Terrorism? Its real but more and more it's just a ruse to keep a massive secret empire fed with billions of dollars of money, much of which gets stolen by well heeled and connected corporations. It is a system that is more and more 'steered' by foreign powers and you the American citizen are more and more a 'target'.
So when you hear these senators making all this hay about Snowden remember these lines from Shakespeare.
"The lady doth protest too loudly, methinks...."
- (Hamlet, Act III, Scene II)
The Leader of the SBC tells the convention about the nations spiritual direction.
What can a man like me say to my readers in times like these. When torturing people (including many innocent people) is now acceptable, lying has become a protected 'right'. Infanticide is a billion dollar industry and men marrying men is the new normal you know the naition has crossed the line into the Spiritual 'Twilight Zone' Yet the nation does not see these things as contrary to God, nature or even their own seared consciences. The nation is falling down a moral cesspool and does not know it and apparently does not care.
But these are the times when our Lord told us these things would be so. We should not be surprised that lost souls behave more and more like... well... lost souls. We however must not allow the filth of the world to cling to our spiritual garments. If the world wants to go to hell, we cannot stop them. We just have to make sure that we don't go there with them. Because brothers, I cannot stress this enough. Hell is a place and real people go there, every single day.
Don't you join them. Embrace Christ and take up your cross and follow him!
The Known Rigged Markets
Very short, very powerful and very true. These markets are as crooked as a dog's hind leg.Propaganda in America - Putin Chides US Spying And Chinese Dissident Says US Behaving Like China
This is very, good and very telling as to where we are today. The only thing I can say is that soon, very soon the world is going to have to move beyond America and Americanism. If spying, drones, torture, money printing, porn, violent video games and the export of sodomy is all we have to offer the world, they would be wise to.
We as a nation can do so much better but have chosen not to with deep and utter defiance and arrogance.
I think God will soon humble us so that we never rise to any kind of prominence/Primacy again.
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
"Prophetic Pulse" A Catholic View
An interesting read from a Catholic perspective. I find it most interesting that he talks about Genetics as being a major issue. It most certainly is. I touched on man made changes to the food system in Earth Trends Report. People have no idea the things going on behind the scenes and how many many nations are now feverishly working on new and better Genetic weapons to use on crops, animals and people. THESE THINGS HAVE ALREADY BEEN USED and many of todays stories are the direct result of these new weapons.But the context is often not told because well... think of the whistleblower Snowden and you can do your own math.Obama Set To Name Gay Abmbassadors
Our leaders would rather millions of Americans die from diseases and medical conditions they know are a result of the things we are now eating than let you in on their perverse little secrets.
With Obama it's not 'What would Jesus Do'. But 'What would the King of Sodom Do'? That appears to be his motto for his second term. World leaders know it - our President is the running, butt-end (Pun intended) joke around the world!! Putin, Hollande and others... they laugh at this guy behind his back about his well shall we say 'tendencies'. They know the real history of this guy that has been carefully hidden from ordinary Americans. If you think I am off, ask yourself this question. What was Obama's name before he changed it? In other words, Do you know it? I am not going into the whole birther thing because in post-constitutional America, only money, corruption, treason and violence decides who sits in the White House. Obama won that battle, fair and square based on the satanic tools needed to ascend to the Presidency. He is now the 'legal' President.
Why is he supporting and pushing his gay policies? The Gay lobby paid a large chunk of his 2012 campaign bills. In Obama's world, he can ram homosexuality down the nation but Christian are being told they can't preach the Gospel, by his IRS!
Like all once great empires, hedonism, perversion, lust and an obsession with sports, entertainment and mindless diversions led to the decline and fall thereof. We are just moving so much faster than Rome did. It took Rome Centuries to rack up the debts America now has, living beyond its means in wantonness, pleasure and vice.
Rome was moving at the pace of a Horse, America at the pace of a fighter jet.
Widespread Sex Sin Invites Destruction
Widespread sexual immorality (heterosexual and homosexual) is an invitation for God to unleash his divine judgment upon the children of men. In a day and age where religious folks use grace as an excuse to wink at sexual sin and nonreligious folk use logical fallacies to justify it, it still merits warning that God is no pushover. - GCM Watch
An excellent biblical study on what what God does to those who commit sex sin and refuse to repent of it... straight or gay.
Christian Persecution Continues Often With Western Help
Few if any of these myriad atrocities gets reported in the US. Why not? Its not hard to figure out. Not to those who have the Spirit of God and walk with him.
Satan is alive and well on Planet Earth...
...and running the United States of America. He has done a masterful job of deceiving the nation to call good evil and evil good. Love is now called 'hate speech' and mass murder is now a 'right'. Torture is 'necessary' and 'Justice' has become synonymous with racism and corruption. War is now the major part of our 'economy' and those who speak the truth are now called 'traitors'.
The devil can pat himself on the back because he has sure done a number on this once great nation.
What do I see in our future? When the mark of the beast system comes, people are going to fall down before Satan's feet in worship faster than they can say "I've sold my soul forever into torment for worshipping God's most ardent enemy and the piece of bread the devil has promised me".
What they don't know is that the devil rarely keeps his promises and once he has your soul, he can laugh you to scorn and toss that piece of bread to a dog, just so he can get off seeing you weep and whine...
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.Don't become an eternal enemy of the living God!
Dollar Tanks As Rout Gathers Pace
Major indices are falling and heavy selling has hit the US dollar, according to news reporting.Explosion Rocks Louisiana Chemical Plant
The reason? What I have said over the past couple of weeks. There is a fight at the Fed about when to scale back and perhaps end these 'asset' purchases, which are really 'debt' (promises to pay) purchases. These purchases are essentially how our government is sustaining itself (the Treasury prints bonds and the Fed 'buys' them up) and keeping interest rates at effectively negative rates.
Analysts are expecting more turbulence in the markets until the Fed can give us all some clarity about where they are going with the 'money printing'.
My next update is going to be (God willing) another Economic Special Report. It won't be for another month or so yet as I have a ton of personal business to take care of in June and July. But it will deal with a lot of issues I have not been able to discuss that have been going on behind the scenes.

India's Poorest Women Forced Into Sterilzation
Family planning, UN style. If they have dark skin and have no money, sterilize them... with rusty scalpels and a filthy operating table - that's the morality of the population controllers. When India does not meet is mandated sterilization targets people get in trouble. Health workers who miss these targets can lose their jobs.
This is a scandal that is hitting much of the world under the news radar. Women are in many places forced to be sterilized. Why? Everyone loves the UN but frankly this is all being encouraged and financed by that organization. Here is just one instance of their past actions.
After Violent Clashes, Istanbul Square 'Quiet'

Pope Francis has been very open about talking about the internal problems in the Vatican. He has confirmed what everyone already knew but was never offically confirmed. There are indeed some very serious issues here.
Recently one Vatican official after being castigated by the Pope for his activities was found dead in his room with his genitila in his mouth. But it does not appear that Francis had anything to do with it. His entourage are some very, very simple and devout people. He has no 'fixers' in his inner circle.
What is not generally known is that withing the Vatican are some fanatical groups who carry out what they think are the Pope's wishes without even consulting him. They are very, very brutal and often hail from former mafiosi, ex-cons, etc. They kind of make of an enforcement arm of the Vatican. They may have understood that the Pope wanted to discipline this guy and took it upon themselves to do it for him.
Another possibility is that the guy knew something and people within this lobby were afraid he might go back to the Pope and start 'opening up his soul', to him.
In any event, don't believe the reports coming out of official Vatican press/circles that this Pope is not being actively resisted at every turn. He is.
If there are two things that will cause bodies to start popping up in any large institution, it is scandal and money and right now the pope is targeting both inside the Vatican.

Feinstien Calls Snowden 'Traitor'
I find this rather repugnant. I really do. Why? Hear me out on this one.
Because Senator Feinstein is the Chairperson for the Senate's Intelligence Oversight Committee. It was her job to ensure that the implementation (classified regulations) of the Patriot Act were fully consistent with the letter and spirit of the law. That was one of her primary jobs on the committee in the post 911 world.
If the NSA reinterpreted the law to no effect via its classified regulations (which Congress with the exception of the Committee, by the way, could not read) there is no one else to blame but Senators like Feinstein. If Snowden felt compelled to reveal this Orwellian spying program to show that there is no effective oversight, whose fault is that? All of this stuff was classified - secret - no democratic input. How can you fix a system built on this kind of embedded non-disclosure and possible criminality? Only one way in Obama's world: Whistleblowers.
If our system wants to keep its secrets, really keep them and be able to trust the people, the truly patriotic people who keep them, they must begin to deal honestly with what they are doing behind closed doors and ask themselves if what they are asking someone who is going to do the actual work, if it is consistent with the values of our nation. Threats and intimidation only tend to reinforce in ones mind that what they are being asked to do is wrong, not right. That is why this administrations whole way of dealing with Whistleblowers as well as Journalists is wrong and is likely to encourage more leakers, not frighten them into silence. Look at it this way: Snowden was making serious money, had a girlfriend as was a kind of 'insider'. He had the world in the palm of his hand. Why did he give it all up? Let me give you my conjecture: He didn't want to be a 21st century Nazi. Right was more important to him than career and money and the name calling done by the real people who are betraying the nation and its principles.
I think Senator's like Feinstien are one of the primary problems in the Intel Community. Not just her but all of these old codgers who have been in power too long and are just out of touch and just a little too drunk with power. Clearly there has been some serious dissent behind the scenes and Feinstein won out with more, not less secrecy and oversight. I ask you, what kind of system do we have where Intelligence leaders have to answer our elected representatives in hearings under oath in the 'least untruthful way possible'? What is going on?!!
Certain members of the Committee thought they could get away with lax or non-existent oversight because it was a criminal act to inform you of their dereliction of their duty. Someone finally committed that criminal act to tell We The People what is going on and that in my estimation is why the Senator is so hot under the collar. Someone woke her up from her 12 year, post 911 nap and she is not in a good mood because she can't beat Rip Van Winkle in the book of world records for contiguous slumber. Perhaps she is the target of some new Intelligence Operation called 'Constant Slumber'
If the committee Feinstien chaired was doing their job properly, Snowden would probably never have felt he had to give up all of his whole future just to tell the people how rotten the whole spying system has become.
The last thing I want to do is go on a personal attack. But if she can't or won't do her job, she needs to be put into a job more fitting to her talents. She is making a lot of money, gets a lot of perks and needs to do her job. Not just her, but all of the members of this committee who went to sleep at the wheel.
They need to put that copy of Mein Kampf down and pick up a copy of the Bible and the Constitution they swore to uphold.
Let me say this as well. I am not against surveillance to catch terrorists. I am not against any and all government spying, even on Americans in very limited circumstances. When crime is suspected or clearly intended Spying and surveillance are tried and true law enforcement techniques. But when you are talking about intelligence, you are dealing with a whole different ball of wax. You collect masses of intelligence on your enemies, not your citizens. When a government feels it needs to collect a vast amount of information on its citiznes like this, the people are in trouble Why? Because despite any protestations to the contrary someone clearly see's you as their enemy or in in the parlance of the Intel community, a valid intelligence target.

IRS Seeks State Of The Art Surveillance Equipment
Everywhere this administration looks for more power to spy on Americans. It's like we the people are now the enemy, not Al Qaeda. It's almost like they want to hand the nation over to someone else Americans would react to in a most unpleasant way. Its almost like they have hired someone in this Presidential administration to get things ready for their eventual rise to power.
I was struck by something recently on my last trip to California. I got a chance to talk to a couple of Realtors over the past few months and this was what I kept hearing. Bear this in mind because one of them sells alot of homes. They were struck by the fact that in California many of the Homes are being bought with CASH. We are talking about 300-700 thousand dollar homes being purchased with CASH money. Not 'sales contingent on the sale of another home' but cold, hard cash. We are not talking about a couple of these kinds of sales a month but a very recognizable percentage of total sales. Notice how California's real estate market is soaring while much of the nation is still in a funk? Those who have to borrow money for a nice home are at a very significant disadvantage and are often not even taken seriously.
So who is buying all of these homes? Asians, particularly Chinese.
Just thought I would toss that out there for you to cogitate on because there is more here than meets the eye.
If I were a Chinese leader with over a trillion dollars of assets and wanted to recycle them into America and with it gain politial power on City and County Councils, police and district attorneys, guess what I would do with my money?
I would buy real estate in California, that's what I would do.

Spying Out of Control - Why Christians Should Take Notice
It has been fascinating watching the debate regarding President Obama's massive data spying program and our utterly corrupt two party system close ranks to protect this system. Let the reader not be under any illusions. This President has authorized the most extensive and massive spying operation in the world and probably in human history. While those engaged in it do their level best to defend it, the truth is clear. This administration is obsessed with both spying and secrecy and it also appears that Senior administration officials lied under oath to Congress when they said these programs don't target Americans and that this was a 'modest invasion' of privacy. Does intercepting a billion phone calls a day sound modest to you? The Whistleblower, who was one of the very few in a position to know, makes it clear that this administration does routinely LIE to Congress about the levels of domestic spying transpiring. Lying to Congress under oath is indeed an impeachable offense.
When you collect over a billion bits of information on a primary US phone carrier, you are not targeting the Island of Pago-Pago, you are targeting Americans, whatever you may say on TV to the public or to Congress. This President appears to be doing his level best to say he isn't targeting Americans specifically because the law does not allow it. Yet, here they are gathering all of this information that it probably takes computer systems the size of a 20 warehouse's to store; full of the data of American citizens that were 'not specifically targeted'. Looks to me like the NSA has found a way to get around the clear intention of the law so they can scoop up the very data the law forbids.
I mean get the name of the program - 'Boundless Informant', clearly the NSA does not feel it has any boundaries on what they collect because they sure are collecting it - boundlessly.
I think the most troubling factor is this is that according to this article, this administration did not feel the FISA court (which is also a highly secretive/Top Secret court) was 'not enough'. They did not want to be bothered with those troublesome courts, warrants and judges. No 'good' Nazi does. Kick the frickin' door down and take what you want... that's the Nazi way. They wanted 'Boundless Information'. They got it with this President.
It really doesn't matter if you are an avid supporter of the President or not. This would have gone on no matter which corporate puppet ascended to what I like to call 'the Throne of Lucifer'. McCain or Obama, Romeny or Obama. It just does not matter. Today, both sides are now angry because people are finding out what has been going on. They don't like that. You are far, far easier to control and manipulate when you are fat, ignorant and addicted to football and porn. When you are in that state, it takes absolutely zero effort to manipulate you, spy on you and take away your ever dwindling rights. They can steal a few million homes as well.
Keep in mind, Nixon was forced from office for wiretapping his political opponents.
What Obama, the Secret Courts (for which We, The People cannot even view their rulings), the GOP and the Intelligence oversight committees have done is do a 'Nixon' on the whole nation.
But frankly these scandals go far deeper. In the UK the parliament is asking pointed questions; something our Congress is NOT doing. Questions like did the UK's intelligence agencies and the NSA set up a system where the UK is deliberately circumventing UK law by allowing the US to obtain information on UK citizens (something the Brits cannot do) and the US passing what they collect to the UK, basically making the protections the Parliament passed null and void. The question now is - is the US doing the same with US citizens, passing on information that they cannot lawfully collect for the express purpose of the 'information sharing' that each nations laws were designed to prevent? Keep in mind that the legal definition of 'collect' was changed very recently as Congressional testimony revealed. From what I gathered from the very carefully worded answer given by an NSA official in that testimony, so as long as our personnel don't analyze it, it is not 'collected'. If this is true, it gives the Intel community the ability to legally lie to Congress by changing the definition of the terms. It may also explain this facilities real purpose, if I am correct (and I may not be, but I don't think I am far off either). Then, again if I am correct, they could take all of this 'non-collected' data and pass it on to other nations who then analyze it and pass on their results to the US. That is the thousand dollar question. Listen very closely to the carefully worded denials coming out of this mendacious administration. They are hiding something, it appears even from Congress.
What I am saying here is that they may be in keeping with the 'letter' of the law. But they may have found a way around any need to follow it and get all the data the law forbids. Just collect the data under false pretenses and 'share' it with the Brits! Do you have a political enemy you want to blackmail? 'intercept' the data (not 'collect' it) 'legally' share it and suddenly in a UK tabloid someones phone conversations are there for all to see and steamy words to their mistress is now fodder in some newspaper.
"...the Prism programme appeared to allow the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) to circumvent the formal legal process required to obtain personal material..." - BBC
Keep this in mind, if this is happening and there is a 'sharing loophole' (I can only guess there probably is based on the heated debate in the UK Parliament) be assured that the Courts, President and the Oversight Committee's are all fully aware of it and probably wrote and encouraged such a loophole, while they feed you all of this stuff about Americans 'not being directly targeted' and the 'totally legal' nature of the program. Notice how the word 'directly' is the careful qualifier in the word targeted. When you hear denials like that, always listen very carefully to the qualifiers. Liars love them and today the qualifiers are being used not just in every statement, but in almost every sentence in every statement.
No free and democratic people need this much spying. Terrorism is a problem, no question about it but today, terrorism looks more like an excuse now to do things our leaders know they should not be doing. If we are really fighting terrorism, why are we arming Al Qaeda militants from Libya to Syria? The only real answer to that is one that no one wants to hear. We aren't fighting terrorism but it sure is a great excuse (let me repeat that word EXCUSE) to lead the nation where some would like it to go. Where is that?
Do I need to draw you a picture?
Picture of the Nazi Death camp 'Auschwitz'
Pause and Consider.
Brothers, keep this in mind as we move forward, this is the end time system that is being built right before our eyes. A spying apparatus is endemic to a state that has totalitarian tendencies has such hopes for itself in its future. It is not just the government, it is the large corporations as well who are collecting all kinds of information on you. You cannot go to the grocery store and buy food and they want a 'loyalty card' that tracks all of your purchases and stores them in a data base. What happens to the info? It gets used in marketing and it gets sold who who knows... they sure aren't telling you. Go to a computer store... same thing, its 'consensual spying'. They get your permission to spy on you and don't tell you who gets the info or even in most cases, that they are even spying on you.
But it is the money system that is of paramount importance when we look at this from an end-time perspective. This is the system that will eventually give us the Mark of the Beast for which no man may buy or sell except that he has that mark on his right hand or forehead.
Some will ask me, 'Brother Mark, didn't you say that that system arises out of the Middle East, how can they be the same if it is out of the US?' Well to answer that question let me refer you to a very important verse that is often overlooked in the book of Revelation.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
To summarize, there are two beasts. One is led by the Great Harlot and the other by the False Prophet. The second beast will somehow obtain all of the power of the first beast. This is the system that brings in the Mark of the Beast. The word here 'before' is key. Here is the translation of the Greek word.
Neuter of a compound of G1722 and a derivation of G3700; in the face of (literally or figuratively): - before, in the presence (sight) of, to.
So what this verse is saying is that these two systems will work side by side and hand in hand. Here is what Albert Barnes Commentary says about this. I think it of use though his views on its specific fulfillment I think are off. But Barnes did not have the benefit of living in our times and seeing the rise of Islamic states, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Arab Oil and the growing power of other Islamic militants.
The same amount of power; the same kind of power. This shows a remarkable relationship between these two beasts; and proves that it was intended to refer to the same power substantially, though manifested in a different form. In the fulfillment of this, we should naturally look for some government whose authority extended far, and which was absolute and arrogant in its character, for this is the power attributed to the first beast. - Albert Barnes Commentary
I think it imperative that we understand what we are looking at for our future as the saints of God who bear the testimony of Jesus Christ. That being that there will be a serious change in the status of the Islamic world and a new system that shall arise out of today's present chaos in the Middle East. Somehow, Islam will gain extensive political power with/over the west to the degree that both will be of equal political and economic stature. Note that all of the power of the first shall be exercised by the second. What am I saying here and how does this relate to this whole NSA spying thing?
Note the words 'ALL THE POWER'. One day all the information that our spy agencies and western corporations (who are far more closely allied with our governments than it is legal to tell you) will somehow be given over to the new 'False Prophet' system. This is the system that brings in the Mark. What happens to those who do not worship the image of the beast? They will be killed (Rev 13:15). What is the image of the beast? We do not know. Some think it is some kind of pagan idol (like Nebuchadnezzar's idol whose dimensions were also encrypted with 666. Keep in mind that music was part of this satanic worship and note the number of instruments used in worship of it Dan 3:5 - Dan 3:10) Others see perhaps a portrait of the man of sin (antichrist). It may be a virtual image (TV/Video) with two way verification (via camera's now installed in new TV's and smart phones) that indeed the worship did in fact take place. Or it may be something more simple, like a pledge to a new flag symbolizing the new order. I do not know what it is, but I do find it interesting that this image has 'life' and can both speak and cause the death of those who don't worship it. In these days of speaking images (TV/Video Streaming) and artificial intelligence (which does exist today) this is not at all far fetched as it was 2000 years ago when many probably thought the Apostle John had spent too many nights alone on the Island of Patmos and was starting to 'lose it'. No longer, technological advancements have once again shown that the scriptures can indeed be trusted to tell us of the future if we learn to rightly divide it and are in a teachable mindset.
I want all of my readers to keep in mind that there are deep connections to Islam and the Third Reich. It was the Reich who set up many of the groups and leaders we see today, like the Muslim Brotherhood, the PLO, etc. Let me remind my readers under no uncertain terms that the Nazi's are alive and well and living in government halls, corporate board rooms and banks all over the world today. They are very, very powerful and exceptionally well organized.
They have a plan and Islam is a key part of that plan.
Gamal Abdel Nasser's 1954 ban of the Brotherhood forced the group to reorganize abroad. While many of its senior leaders would spend years in Egyptian jails and its top theoretician, Sayyid Qutb, would be executed, the group was fortunate in having two havens where it was able to regroup. One was Saudi Arabia where it laid down deep roots, eventually melding with indigenous Islamist movements to create a powerful and violent challenge to the ruling royal family. The other, less well-known haven was Europe. Ramadan had already been to the continent several times and was studying law at Cologne University. When the Egyptian ban came into effect, he was living in Geneva, which he would make his home until his death forty years later.
This was a period before the great influx of migrant workers was to transform Europe. Muslims were few and far between. Germany, for example, had just two mosques, one in Hamburg and the other in Berlin. But this does not mean that Islam was not on the radar of Western policymakers. The process of decolonization was creating dozens of newly independent states, many of them Muslim. Western intelligence agencies were eager to use covert propaganda to influence these countries for broader, strategic purposes, such as the battle against communism.
West Germany was home to several hundred Muslims (estimates vary with the upper limit around 2,000) who had served in the Wehrmacht and the Nazi SS. They had been former Red Army soldiers who had been captured by the Germans and changed sides, either for fear of death in the horrific German prisoner-of-war camps or because of their belief in the Nazis' promise to liberate their Soviet-ruled homelands. After the war, most were repatriated but some managed to stay on, congregating for various reasons in Munich.
Many of these began working for von Mende, who had spent the war years in the Reich Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territories (usually known as the Ostministerium), coordinating Muslim and other Soviet minorities. After the war, he set up a series of quasi-free intelligence operations that have remained unstudied to date, eventually settling on the name "Research Service East Europe" (Forschungsdienst Osteuropa) that was co-financed at various times by the West German Interior Ministry, Foreign Office, External Intelligence Service, and Domestic Intelligence Service. Von Mende tried to rally the Muslims who stayed behind—many of them his old Ostministerium colleagues—in order to achieve West German foreign policy aims, including the long-term recovery of lost German territories east of the Oder-Neisse border. One of his methods for winning over the Muslims was to promise them a mosque in Munich.
Ramadan stepped into this complex situation in 1958. Under von Mende's guidance, the Munich Muslims set up a registered, legal organization to build the mosque, inviting young Arab students for extended stays in the city. Ramadan was thus invited from Geneva to Munich and within a year kicked out von Mende's Muslims and took over the project, using his position as head of the Munich Mosque Construction Commission to traverse the Muslim world with his assistant (and later rival), Ghaleb Himmat.
Ramadan was aided significantly by the Central Intelligence Agency, which allegedly paid for his travel and backed his efforts to take over the mosque. Suspicions by the West German and Swiss intelligence services that he was a CIA operative have never been positively proven, but the archives show an early U.S. fascination with the Brotherhood, one that would recur in the subsequent decades.
Whatever the reasons behind the U.S. support for Ramadan and the Brotherhood, the latter made good use of their European platform. Through dint of hard work and organizational prowess they used the mosque as a springboard to create a European-wide network. - Europe's Underestimated Islamists (MEF - footnotes hotlink to original document)
What is my point here? Study the past. Study your Bibles and the future becomes clear. We Christians are going to be rounded up and killed - stop trying to deny it and thinking you're going to 'fly away' before all of this happens... brother... it ain't happnin', not until AFTER the mark of the beast.
All of this spying and tracking. It has a deep satanic purpose. Today if you carry a cell phone, tablet are driving a car with any kind of GPS or Satellite enabled device - they know exactly where you are at any given moment. My guess is that they can probably find you via your voice print if you pick up a phone that is not even yours, or should our leaders so wish they can probably pick you up with facial recognition software via all of these surveillance camera's we see popping up all over America. Satan needs these tools. He knows that he is only going to have 1260 days to do his best dirt. He needs the technology to carry out his plan. This technologuy will be used against us when not taking the mark of the beast will be the equivalent of an act of 'terrorism'.
This is exactly the kind of power the false prophet will need in the final 1260 days of this present age and the above verse indicates that all of this power the US is now creating will be available for this second beast to use.
So when you see me using the Auschwitz analogy for where all of this is heading perhaps you will get a better understand for why I am using it.
I use it because it's all right there in your Bible if you take the time to look.

Detroit: The Rebirth of Destruction
Mass demolition appears to be the path the city is taking to revitalize the city. I think it wise to take a look at how cities are dealing with the mass loss of jobs, shrinking tax base and dilapidated housing. Why? Because this economic crisis is not over. Not by a long shot and those cities that don't look like Detroit may start to before too long. The problems in many US cities are acute and are not getting any better. So I like to watch and see how some cities deal with the issues they are facing. Weather they allow city officials to steal the money from pension funds and the cities coffers or try and attract new businesses and industries, reduce spending, raise taxes, seek federal help. I am curious to see a model that really fixes the problems and puts cities on firm financial footing and still provides critical (as opposed to just desired) services for its citizens.Germany: High Court To Consider Bond Buying Plan

Brothers, I am not going to belabor the point. Senator Wyden told the whole world what little he could a couple of years ago and the nation was dead asleep. No one really cared. Uncle Tom black leaders didn't. The Gay activists didn't. Hollywood didn't. Christian leaders didn't (though they should as Christians are particularly vulnerable all over the world to oppressive/spying governments), those false shepherds were too busy buying that new 7 Series BMW or S Class Mercedes to be bothered. Certain conservative Americans did care, for about 21.5 seconds (1.5 seconds longer that the usual attention span). Everyone just turned the channel to the NFL and porn.
Don't let this extremely dangerous and deceitful President fool you. He is no ones friend if you are not, very rich, powerful and hate our Constitutional form of Government and most importantly the protections it provides for ordinary Americans. If that is you.

Always ALWAYS KEEP THIS IN MIND when he speaks - what he says and what he does are often 180 degrees apart from one another.
Well.. it finally loaded. Here is the EFF's take on things here with all of the hot-links strangely missing.
Some will say, 'Shouldn't the government have tools to Monitor potential terror attacks'? Yes, absolutely but.... They should have those tools with a court order on a strictly case by case basis. Not this blanket spying on everyone all the time (photos, email, phone conversations) type of surveillance. This is Nazi-ism pure and simple. We are in Nazi Germany long before Auschwitz and Dacau when these newly elected Nazi's are using their power to put in place everything they need to stifle any kind of dissent against the government and its (this is key) not yet implemented policies.
Brothers let me break it down to you. You don't even have the right to vote anymore. Sure, you can go to the polls and pull a lever, but your votes are counted weeks before the polls open, as I talked about in one of yesterdays posts.
You are to be managed and controlled, not listened to and when the time is right, people are going to start disappearing all over America. It will be in one-sies and two-sies at first but later, it will be in large numbers. What did the Nazi's do with its dissidents and political prisoners? They put them to work for massive German Corporations for free (slavery). That is what Auschwitz was. It was a labor camp for IG Farben!
It was only later it became a death camp. So at first Germans told themselves after being feed a steady diet of anti-semitic Nazi propaganda, 'those Jews need to be taught a lesson anyway!' Today, in America its 'those blacks need to be taught a lesson anyway!' How can you compare the two, you may ask? Simple. Forget the spin and just observe what is happening. A group of people are racially targeted to be used as essentially slave labor in a system that enriches large corporations. Don't spin it, don't listen to 'explanations' defending it. Look at what is actually going on and then you can see it for what it is. Spin is just a very basic, almost child-like form of propaganda, but on the American mind, its pretty effective, given their limited attention spans and ability to think critically.
Remember, what they plan on doing to you, they do it to the brothers first, work out the bugs and then spring it on everyone else.
So what is Congress going to do about all of this spying? Nothing, they don't have to, the votes for the election in 2014 are already 51% counted and they know they have already won with 100% of the votes so far counted.

Know this as well, some of these Senators on these oversight committee's are some pretty arrogant, petty little people who have been given far too much power with absolutely no democratic accountability because everything they do is 'classified' and you, the voter have not and will never be given clearance.

By the way, your President is building YET ANOTHER NSA spying center in Maryland.
Look.... I know no one is telling folks the danger. They would rather not talk about the real issues and would rather dance around them and ignore the elephant in the room. These things are not pleasant to talk about, they make people uncomfortable and are way outside of middle America's comfort zone. Bloggers who are more concerned about 'hits' than truth won't talk about it, which reduces all of this to maybe 100 or so folks who are not afraid and are telling it like it is. Christian sites are too much like the Church was in Hitlers times when it was just easier to put a swastika in the sanctuary and report on their parishioners to the SS and Gestapo than tell the truth and oppose and expose evil.
These are dangerous and deceitful times....

'No more Black Presidents'
He will have messed it up or anyone else.
Many of you say, 'well he got re-elected didn't he? ' Yes he did. But not honestly (Democrats commit vote fraud too and there were thousands of reports of very, serious shenanigans committed by the Obama campaign) and truth be told, Romney probably did not want that job after being in that campaign several months and seeing what was expected of him as POTUS. His wife was dead set against him running and I think 'mama' basically was a key factor towards the end. His campaign was shabbily run with some real serious incompetence and keep this in mind - Romney had grounds to challenge the results in many states and gave up pretty much before all the votes were counted.
I just don't think he wanted that job once he saw what it really entailed. He probably said "I am a very, very rich man. I can do whatever I want to when I want to. Why would I exchange that for the gilded prison of the White House surrounded by a bunch of vultures, rats and jackals for advisers? What do I get out of it? You're Right... forget it Baby. Let's fly to the Bahama's in our private jet and get some sun. I want to go scuba diving in that new Yacht I just bought!!"
This whole spying thing... to me it is so very sad because Obama could really have been a great President if he had just kept to the promises he made when running in 2008. Now his crony's are out defending the fact that he didn't keep those promises and frankly, had no intention of keeping them.
You just had to stop listening to what he said and look at who was paying his bills and this would have been clear as the summer sun back in 2008. It was a 'no-brainier'.
But let me break this down to you. We do not live in a democracy. This is a kleptocracy with strong oligarchical cartels that run (and ruin) the nation. Today, Voting is the opiate of the masses. Stalin summed it up best.
"It is not the voter that matters, but who counts the votes that matters."
...and that is no truer than in America, where we haven't had an honest election in a great many years. The US Presidency is auctioned, not voted on. More and more voting results are 'arranged' to come to the conclusion of the winning cartels in behind the scenes battles. That is why there has been and will be no change except for the worse.

China has hit back in a measured way.Insider: China May Introduce Gold Backed Yuan
Not your average insider. Pretty much telling her readers what I said a some time ago. That Gold's price was deliberately forced downwards to allow others to buy it up cheap. They stole the gold from those who owned it with major banks, metal exchanges and warehouses who then dumped the paper (mark that PAPER) gold to drive the price way, way down. Then Central banks came in and bought up the real thing (not PAPER much of it stolen from private citizens) in secret. But this is not news, these shenanigans have been going on for sometime and I have alluded to them, but only a few bloggers were telling folks that people's gold was being stolen when it was supposedly 'in trust' in a vault. No one listened or wanted to. 'They can't do that!" was the refrain. That was until the asked for delivery of the actual metal and were told, they weren't going to get it. More here. If you do a search, note the dearth of reporting from your MSM sources on this subject and you get a better idea who 'lap' your press is sitting in.Japan's Folly May Hit US Shores
Central banks are preparing. Let me say that again. Central banks are preparing for the day they know is a mathematical certainty given their policies of money printing. Note this: The Germans are ready. The Chinese are ready. The Russians are ready. Ready for the day when nations begin to stop trusting in the paper currencies that are printed up out of thin air and go for Gold, Silver or platinum based currencies, which cannot be printed up out of thin air. Gold is the ultimate fiscal disciplinarian. It's why men like Bernanke hate it.
Now listen up, you are going to get a whole slew of internet flatulence telling you that such a day will never happen. Be assured that that day may be sooner than you think, should the Fed begin a new type of money printing that holders of our Treasuries don't like. The Asia Pacific region will trade in whatever China desires and when she no longer accepts dollars for payments but only Gold or Gold backed currency, the jig may be up for us. The US knowing this has (not conjecture) acquired significant gold holdings over the past few years. While the MSM was mocking gold and laughing at all who had it DRIVING DOWN THE PRICE, the US was buying it up very, very quietly and often outside of the law. Its like when a metal exchange sells the same ounce of gold... twice. The US gets the gold and the ordinary Joe gets a letter saying in polite legalese 'We have defrauded you and there is nothing anyone is going to do to us. The Justice department is 'busting a gut' at your dumb, sorry behind for trusting us.' He is out his once of gold (1800 dollars) or 10 ounces (18,000 dollars) or 100 onces (180,000) based on pre-manipulated collapse prices. You want a small little hint of how China may be getting ready to pull the plug on the US dollar based trade relationship? Check out these stories and remember where they get their inventory. Now go back and read this great PBS piece and do your own math.
I know many of you are just not going to buy into this. I am not here to convince you of anything, but I think a few thousand victims of this gold fraud had wished they had listened to those who said that this was going on back then.
Time will provide any justification for what I have written. The conspirators will call this 'conspiracy theory' using their well paid mouthpieces, who pant in their masters lap for that tasty 'bone'. I prefer to call it, 'informed conjecture'. But know this. I do NOT give investment advice, this is personal observation and commentary. YOU decide what to buy and when to buy it and hopefully with some good, rock solid professional advice, which I am not qualified to give.
I do NOT own any gold nor do I have any intention of buying it. The US confiscated it once before (in the days of FDR) and if they need to, they will certainly do it again. Given the moral bankruptcy of this Administration and the financial chicanery it has allowed to go on under it all to the benefit of Wall Street, confiscation's possibility will only wane (tough not disappear) when the Obama's, Jack Lew's and the Ben Bernanke's of the world leave office, with their secret service protection because when all hell breaks loose and the folks realize just what 'sold out' really means...
...I think they are going to need it.

Putin Would Sign Gay Adoption Ban
Russia society is far more conservative and religious on this front that any Western power. Putin, I do not think is necessarily anti-gay. But see's the open acceptance of homosexuality as being contrary to the long term interests of Russia and frankly a sign of the west's increasing hedonism and moral degeneracy. Consequently, he will never accept 'activists' (often encouraged and financed by Western Intelligence Services) to come in and stoke up all manner of divisions in Russia with protests and civil unrest.US Prepares Groundwork For Syrian Intervention
Keep in mind (whether you believe homosexuality is 'OK' or not) that one of Russia's most difficult strategic challenges is a a major demographic (population decline) problem. It is a major problem and Putin has finally been able to move Russia in the right direction on this front. Homosexuality and its open acceptance and encouragement is counter to Russia's demographic and national interest. Second, The Russian Orthodox Church is very prominent in Russian Society. Putin is wise to tread carefully and curry favor there as well.
I will be talking about Putin and Russia in my next PDF update. It should be up in the next 10 days or so.

I do not want to overstate the case, it is just that this guy is pretty bad when it comes to the rights of ordinary Americans against the overpowering and often corrupt powers of the state. Keep this in mind. Hitlers Germany didn't start off with the death camps. They put the surveillance/repression framework in place first. Then and only then did they start using the gas chambers and ovens. So in the early days of Hitler's Germany you could not point and say 'there are death camps in Nazi Germany'. No, because they did not exist at first. They waited until they could silence dissent and find out who was talking to whom and shut them up as well. Then they knew they could do what ever they wanted.
...and they did.
Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. I am not saying that death camps per se are coming to America. Rather I am saying that whatever they have planned, its something you and I would fight tooth and nail. These measures are designed to ensure that we can't fight it.
I am sad to see the usually astute Black leaders who would ordinarily scream about these abuses sitting silent just because the President is Black and kid yourself not, that is the only reason they keep those blinders on. Either that or they have been threatened. I have been Black for over half a century and I have never seen anything like this among liberals and the Black community. Some say I am too hard on the President. The difference between me and most of Black America is that I am not going let race be an over-ridding factor over is policies. His skin color is not a 'trump card' over what he does. Black America can sit like an ostrich if it wants to and let his donors with very deep pockets destroy our freedoms and rights, if they so wish. I am not going to do that. What needs to happen is Black leaders come together and put somereal pressure on him. They can threaten him with the only thing that really matters to him and that is his legacy.
We sure got 'change' under Obama. It just wasn't the change he promised and when he gets finished with this economy, a little spare 'change' is all working people are going to have left while the banksters sail into the sunset with our money, jobs and the title to our homes.
Obama May Reel In Patent Trolls
This may be one of the few really good things he does this year. These lawsuits cost a bundle and they are being used not to protect patents but to harrass competitors and forestall innovation. In short these Patent trolls are little more than extortion artists.
Using patent trolls is also a great way for foreign nations to use the US legal system to undermine our innovation while they move ahead with the same innovation that they just stole.

It's pretty sad what is happening to America and the deep loss of spiritual direction. The moral compass of America just seems to be stuck not on North, but on 'S' for Satan, who loves murder for he was one from the beginning (John 8:44).SCOTUS: If Arrested Cops Can Take Your DNA
Scalia interestingly dissented with what looks to this author as the 'fascist' wing of the court. This decision is not surprising to me. Why not? Simple a lot of money ( I do mean a lot) and shall we say secret investment has gone into massive DNA databases that are shared across national lines. Ever heard of the Prüm Convention? More here.
Does this DNA get sold off to God who knows for a profit? Is the DNA being used to conduct studies? Create new weapons? How anxious do you think our leaders will be to tell you that if they were?
There are so many imposter gospels on the way to the All-There-Is. Like running to the casino and the shopping mall to avoid our money troubles, we turn to various gospels of positive thinking and warm feelings to avoid the still point within where God and True Self converge, where real peace and passionate response are possible. The adrenaline gospel lures us with its promise to satisfy every desire or at least entertain us on the way. No desert passages, no sacrificial offerings for us. We can have Jesus our way, on our terms. The vending machine God loves to give…provided we drop in our shiny coins of devotion. Surely God wants us to succeed, to be happy and to prosper in work, love and prestige. Surely God will be pleased when we are pleased.
The tricky nature of the fake gospels is that they are glazed in truth. God does love to give, does draw us to the wellspring of abundant life, but in God’s way, on God’s terms, not ours. Our job is simply to love God with all our heart, follow Jesus with all our heart. God decides the rest. When we stop trying to have a certain kind of God and a certain kind of spiritual experience, we are freed. We no longer need to please anyone. We begin to live the Real Gospel. - Inward/Outward
There is only one path and one gospel that saves souls. One and only one. Christ preached it as did the Apostles. It is there in your Bibles. Smorgasborg Christianity where you pick and choose what you like and leave what you don't like behind... it isn't going to save you. This new growing religious 'universalism' isn't going to save you. This new gospel that all roads lead to God isn't going to get you in. That is just mankind doing what he can to put a stamp of approval on his own wicked deeds without changing his behavior. No brothers, Christ put it succinctly.
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.Christ is the only way in. There is no other way. God has put a marvelous plan in place to save our souls and that plan culminated in the person and work of Jesus Christ. He does not charge you for it, he does not require you to climb Mt. Everest to obtain it, or swim across the ocean. Rather he requires two basic things that any man women or child can do. Change their ways and have faith in Christ. This is the simplicity of the gospel in its most basic form. The rub lies in that most men do not want to change and would rather put their faith in their money, government and careers than in God.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Let us all remember these other gospels are out there and are being preached in a great many mainline denominations. Let the reader beware in these most dangerous times of laying hold to the counterfeit rather than the real thing. This is nothing more that the devil engaging in what can be best be described as 'spiritual piracy'.
Only the real thing will save your soul. A pirated copy ain't gonna cut it.
Antipas ministries has a timely piece that can be found here on counterfeit gospels.
This issue is of no little importance so I ask all of you to check out both pieces. I have written on this subject many times over many years so I will not belabor this point other than to say that if man want his ears tickled and have the stamp of approval on his sins, there are a thousand 'other gospels' out there that will do that for them. If they want to worship at the alter of mammon and love money, there is a gospel for that too. But if the Kingdom of God is what you truly yearn for, from the very depths of your soul, there is only one way to attain that goal and that is via the cross of Christ.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
After The Fall
This is quite good, though I wish they would have placed a link to the actual Fed report in its pages. This is about the millions of Americans who have seen no recovery and are still very much struggling with this uneven (as I like to call it), fake recovery.Protests Rock Turkey
It is a recovery that is based on Bernanke printing money that goes to the very, very rich who in turn don't let that money get into the general economy. Stocks go up, the banks go out and buy up all kinds of stuff overseas but no jobs are created here and businesses struggle or simply go out of business. This is not good. Some may say its great that stocks go up! Yes it is, but the problem is that the money that makes them go up is all printed up. Since "investors" are trapped and have few other options, that is where the money goes in this economy. They are not going to buy bonds, not at 0% interest. Not in a savings account, not with 0.9% interest. But keep in mind that this money can easily and quickly evaporate, just as quickly as it is printed. When the printing press stops, so do the gains and when the gains stop, people move their money and when they move their money, stock prices fall. This printing money is just a kind of 'heroin fix'. We all feel good for a few minutes but now there are two choices we now face, become an addict or go through withdrawals.
This paper (linked below) deals with what is happening in American households. The St. Louis Fed has a whole new section on its site dealing with this here.
Another excellent source is Pew Research's recent piece that can be found on this link.
But the most telling figures on how bad things are out there for millions of Americans are those that now qualify for food stamps. That being that 15% of Americans are now on them.
That should tell any thinking person just what is really happening in the economy.
This site/ministry will always focus on what is happening to the less fortunate of all races and backgrounds and if I harp a little on what is happening in Black America, well, in many parts of the nation their problems are most acute. I really think all should pay attention here because the 'wolf' may be arriving at your door at a time when you never thought it was possible. Show some mercy and concern and God may show you some when trouble/want/financial difficulty knocks on your door.
This is the 4th day of protests in Turkey as a mass of demonstrations target Erdogans government. It appears that many are tired of Erdogan's Islamic pandering and want to turn Turkey towards a more secular/western society. Many are calling for his resignation (a fact 'missed' in the HuffPo piece).
This is all most interesting and at a real crossroads. Turkey has been heavily invovled in the Syrian conflict and is according to many news sources, a transit point for US arms and aid to the Syrian 'rebels'. So who is really behind this is a 'tiny' mystery to the uninitated. These uprisings in the Middle East are not nearly as 'spontaneous' as we are being led to believe. It behooves us to know that some of the regional powers would love to see this government fall and have been trying to gain allies to make it happen, via methods that we appear to be witnessing. Keep in mind who some of the nations are who are funding and control these armed groups in Syria. On the outside chance that things get out of hand in Turkey they could be used in Turkey.
The Middle East is a mess and outside interference has made it much more so. So far, radical Islam has won (Egypt/Libya/Tunisia/Yemen) and is still very much in the game in places like Iraq, where car bombs speak the language of the Radical Islamists.
It is hard not to see what is happening in the Middle East to a spirit filled and studious prophecy student. I wrote about what I saw as teh future of the Middle East back in 2006-7 in a series of pieces. Two of which are in pdf form on this site, Two Horns and The Rise of Neo-Persia. In those papers I taked about a system arising out of the now contended 'Arab Spring' nations that would eventually develop into some kind of Pan-Islamic Common market and political system that would eventually give rise to the Antichrist (man of sin). Not many (at all!) were really talking much about it back then. I know, I looked long and hard on the internet to find material. It just wasn't there. Well, it is now and even books have been written on it. So none of the events we are seeing is any kind of mystery to me, I saw this coming though an startled by the swiftness of the changes taking place while much of the Church is dead asleep. Emphasis on the word 'dead'.
Where does this all lead? It leads to an Islamic system in this region with enormous power as well as even greater deceptiveness. It leads to a system where all men are given a number and no one can buy or sell if he does not have it. If you take it, you lose your soul, if you don't take it, you don't eat (at the devils table) and eventually will be killed.
It takes honest study and a jettisoning of popular teachings about this coming Antichrist system and a thorough examination of the scriptures to understand this. Most Christians won't do that and that is why they don't and won't see this. They are too busy praying up Mercedes' and BMW's to even consider spending the hours needed to be know the times.
So keep these things in mind as we move forward. Events in the middle east will have enormous prophetic significance and indeed already are as the number of martyrs (foretold by Christ) is rising every single day, particularly in this part of the world.
Before anyone surfs away and says that I am way off on this, I ask you to take a quick look at this interesting piece that came out today.

100,000 Christians Killed Each Year
Because of their faith in Christ.
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
Just as Christ foretold, there is a bloodbath of Christians taking place in the world today... these last days. What is the reason? Why are Christians being killed so brutally? Simple and its right there in the verse above, the word of our testimony. Bearing witness to the Gospel and the person and work of Jesus Christ. This is why in so many nations, Churches are being torn down, or as in some places like Saudi Arabia, are not even allowed to be built. It's a deep contempt and hatred for the word of our testimony and the unique person and work of Jesus Christ. That is what gets you harassed, imprisoned and even killed in these last days in many of these nations.
God is great in his mercy towards lost man and has shown great forbearance him towards. And if other Christians want to know why God is not moving to protect the persecuted the answer is simple. Some of us are destined for martyrdom. Soft Christians and those who have not counted the cost of their faith don't know this and cannot wrap their heads around this. Why does God require martyrs? That fact should be easy for real Christians to determine. God's plan includes both a plan to save and a plan to bear witness against those who love and live sin and evil. God gives us a choice down here to do good and to do evil. We must stand and take all the devil can dish out against us AS A TESTIMONY against those who would kill us for our faith, love and obedience to God. Those who love evil are going to demonstrate it fully and completely. Thngs are going to get 'hot' and when they do, the real character of man will reveal itself, weather it be of Christ or of the devil. God is not going to give anyone down here any excuse on the day of Judgment.
Folks who think they are going to 'tell God a thing or two' on Judgment day are going to be shocked at the detailed records he kept on their lives. Not just what they did, but the VERY THOUGHTS that they had when they did what they did. For the horrible punishment God has in store for the fallen angels and sinful man be assured, in the end it will be completely just. Innocent blood, hate, lies, adultery, homosexuality, theft, fraud and all manner of deceit will be paid for in full by the sinner, I might add. The devils children are not going to mess up heaven or the new world God is going to create. That which defiles will not gain entry and that is one key reason that they just have to be kept out of his new Kingdom. It is also why God gives each of us a choice... and its yours to make.
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, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Look at it this way. Those who love leprosy will get to stay in the eternal leper colony of hell. They can wash and be clean and enter into God's kingdom. But entry is only granted without the leprosy of sin. No carrier of infectious spiritual diseases are going to get in. You want in?
Wash and be clean. Repent, believe the gospel and obey Christ.
But Christ was crystal clear to all of us Christians. COUNT THE COST. For those of us who live in these last days, be ready. Should the mark of the beast system come into being in our lifetimes as I think it will, your physical life won't be worth a confederate dollar in that 1260 day period. If you take that mark, you will lose your soul. I recently had a revelation (of sorts) of people I have known taking it and then joking and laughing about having done so, and then mocking me for not having done so. Those that do take it, earn a one way ticket to hellfire... forever. It is going to take an enormous amount of courage, faith and patience to STAND in that evil day. It is why there is a special blessing on those who die in the Lord in those days.
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. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
So when you see these stories, pray for your brethren, but be neither shocked nor dismayed that the trend is growing and not abating. But know this as well, your turn (OUR turn) is coming, just as surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. They (the world systems) will one day come after us here in the west. Just know this and keep it firmly in mind and be prepared.
God is not going to give those who persecute his saints a 'pass'. He is not going to forgive them without deep and sincere repentance. Loot at Paul. He once persecuted the saints and even in his ministry, it was marked by many afflictions. But that is what was was foretold of him as a direct result of his previous persecutions.
Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
Paul's whole ministry was one of suffering and yet in it he was thankful and joyful. This is the attitude we must have when we face persecutions and troubles.Recovery? Not for the Common People
I say these things because we must never adopt a 'ho-hum' attitude about Christian martyrs. God is counting them one by one (see the above verses) and has a set number who are to be killed by world systems now in place.
Prepare your soul. Prepare your hearts and cease to think of these things along 'American' lines and start to think of them along divine, spiritual lines. That poor Christian woman in Bangledesh who makes less than a dollar a month is just as important to God as a Rick Warren or Pope Francis is.
If Christians would spend more time praying for their brethren, we might begin to see some mighty miracles taking place where there is enormous persecution. Show the love that Christ has shown you towards your brothers and sisters in Christ!
When was the last time you prayed for your persecuted Sisters and Brethren?
Ask God to keep your mind stayed upon Christ and to not let confusion or fear gain a foothold in your minds, hearts or spirits in the day of our trials.
Jesse Jackson writes a poignant piece about what is happening to America, common people.
Jesse has kind of been sidelined by the white owned Black press since his comments about Obama back in 2008. He made it clear that was no fan of him back then and the mic caught him telling us what he really thought about him. Since then he has seen scandals and a kind of black-out of him by what I will call the 'Oreo' cookie Black media. Their job sadly, it is to lead you into the jaws of Corporate America's marketing and keep Black America from addressing the real issues facing millions of disenfranchised Black Americans. With them, the message is Afro-sheen (owned by Johnson and Johnson), Beyonce (under contract to Columbia) and Verizon (for you to $BUY$), not Foreclosures, the Black Prison crisis and rising poverty and even looming bankruptcy in many historically Black municipalities.
Meanwhile our cities are in shambles, Black folks are victimized by cops more and more and Obama does nothing to fix these growing and very serious and alarming problems except arrange secret pea deals with big banks, arrange for immunity for their crimes and have photo ops with those who could put an end to these 'stop and frisk' polices that target Black folks. Why did Bloomberg endorse Obama for President? Becaue Obama lets him get away with these 'Stop and Frisk' polices. Perhaps they both think 'those people' (or insert your offensive racially charged noun that starts with na 'N' here in its place) need to be put 'in their place'. "No N--gers after dark" is the message NY seems to be sending to its Black residents. . Obama's DOJ could look into this, but hasn't... after 4 and half years. I think a smart person can figure out why. It's hard not to see "Endorse me and I'll let you round up all the brothers, they ain't writin' no checks to me and my campaign anyway, screw 'em", in all of this. Keep in mind t hat NY has had a series of incidents where cops were shooting unarmed black men (more here and here) not so long ago. Mayor Bloomberg's New York City... who endores Obama I might add who perhaps not so strangely has done nothing to look into the misdeeds of his buddy's police department.
In short he talks Black and acts very differently. He acts like too many of those who hate and have worked hard for Black America's economic evisceration. He has too many people surrounding him whose actions to too closely resemble the actions of those who victimize their own people for a quick buck for any thinking Black person to be comfortable with. His whole economic team is filled with those who took many of America's homes, according to many, illegally and then got him to immunize them from prosecution. Black man loses home via criminal acts, White man gets immunity. Is this the 'New Black'?
Look Obama is now listening to a guy like Kissinger?
Go back and see what kind of 'high opinion' Kissinger has of anyone not 'White like him'.
What is it going to take to wake up Black America and Black Christians in particular to put some pressure on him to change his ways? He will change, but only when you publicly embaraass him and show him up for what he really is. That is the only time you see any movement towards 'change'.
Kuwait: Arab Spring Arrives
One to keep an eye on.
Yes, Obama's Drones ARE Everywhere
All of these thing we are seeing now were being set in motion years ago by this President quietly when you were not looking. This article talks more about smaller commercial and criminal drones.
But the other threat is not talked about here. It is real and growing and most of it is behind a wall of classifications, nebulously and easily circumvented language and millions of dollars in donations from the Drone Industry. Obama as well has been captured by the industry. Just take Rayethon, the manufacturer of one (many other) of our key Military Drones. Other companies are also clearly on the forefront. How much did Obama get from Raytheon? Look and see.
For years of this man has only shown us (by his deeds, not his words) that if it takes away the rights (think patriot act), property (think foreclosure crisis) and dignity (think assassination of US citizen-children without a trial) of ordinary people, Obama is going to support it, 100% and will use the full weight of his office to do so, as long as the people are not looking and that is why his administration is so obsessed with secrecy. Don't get me wrong, if you listen to him talk he tells you exactly what you want to hear. But the doing is usually 180 degrees opposite of what he says. He knows America's attention span is about 20 seconds... on a good day and usually they are not paying attention at all.
“Human nature being what it is, all men prefer a false promise to a flat refusal. At the worst the man to whom you have lied may be angry. That risk, if you make a promise, is uncertain and deferred, and it affects only a few. But if you refuse you are sure to offend many, and that at once."
- Cicero (1st Century BC)
If it enriches the powerful and puts money in their pockets, Obama is going to support it and he will twist and contort national security laws to break the written laws to make it all happen. All it takes is a big fat check written to what some have referred to that 'political vending machine', 'Barak Obama'..
I am not saying that there are not some really good things that drones can do. From firefighting to disaster recovery even to limited Law enforcement uses There are clearly some really good things that can be done. My point is more simple. This was pushed for a long time in secret after all the money landed in certain accounts of our politicians from both sides of the aisle. Then they sprung it all on us without any real intelligent debate. It's like they don't even care about what the people think about it as long as they get that check in their accounts on time and their names spelled right on the check. That's not democracy, that's kleptocracy because our tax money is being used to make these things that spy on us without our input, consent and for a long time, even without our knowledge.

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.
"Stuck In Baby Talk" or "Remedial Swaddling Clothes."
If you saw a 49 year old man walking down the street who was still saying goo-goo gaa-gaa and wearing diapers that smelled like they needed changing, what would you think? From a spiritual perspective that is the condition of many... a great many Christians. Brothers, this... trust me on this if you can't on anything else... this is NOT the time to be stubborn and recalcitrant regarding your walk with Christ. This is not the time to ignore solid biblical teachings. The writer above (probably the Apostle Paul, but the authorship is still disputed by some) was writing to Hebrew believers for two reasons, to reaffirm the power of Christ and his resurrection and warn them of the perils of falling away.
Falling away that is Apostasy, not backsliding. This is a subject that is one of the most difficult to talk about, at least for me. I know what this whole thing is about. I have been there and as the saying goes, I 'got the t-shirt' though that is one piece of clothing I wish I never picked up in my life's travels. Brothers I was very, very nigh unto either being taken home or being cursed. It was late one night and my body was surrounded by a kind of electricity. It lasted at least a minute, probably two, I cannot say for sure because I was scared TO DEATH. I did not know what was happening to me and I honestly thought I was getting ready to die because I knew I was not dreaming and I could not stop it but also it wasn't painful.. Now this was about 20 years ago (93-94) and I was living in Germany at the time and was not, definitely NOT walking with God at that time. I had backslidden real far. Just before this experience ended, I heard a voice say, 'The axe is laid to the tree'. What that meant, I knew... it was the same kind of thing that was said about Nebuchadnezzar who got proud and arrogant and rebelled against God. I was in rebellion at the time and had been for well over 10 years. I think God was basically doing an inventory on me, I was a tree that had a lot of 'water and care' but was not yielding any fruit. I also knew that God does not bluff.
He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.A day or two after this experience, I got a rare call from my mother. Remember, back in the early 90's the internet was still a very new thing and very few had it. There was no email and international phone calls weren't cheap so we did not talk very often. She told me that she was very concerned for me and that she and her sister had really been praying for me, if I remember correctly it was my aunt who called my mother and told her of her concern for me. Well, I was too embarrassed to tell her what just happened, so I didn't. I was really in quandary and not sure what to do. Soon thereafter the Lord made it clear to me that I was to return state-side and that he had work for me there. I had absolutely no idea what that work was to be, nor that within two years I would leave the Military. I really loved Germany and if were up to me, I would have stayed there and retired. I was not wild about coming back to the US at all. Frankly, I still don't like living here much. I have so little in common with my countrymen who seem to have such a disdain for God, their rights, freedoms, history and the rights and freedom of others... I mean just the right to live and let live. Don't get me wrong, there are some very fine Americans out there, no question about it and the generation of Americans that are now passing, they were truly the greatest generation. But this new breed? I can only shake my head at some of the things I see and hear. I recently heard someone I know say they think torture is great, we should do more of it. Little did they know or want to know that many of the people we tortured were completely innocent of any crime and have been cleared for release from the Guantanamo Concentration/Torture Camp, but have not been let go and probably never will be. I cringe to spend too much time with Americans whose love of mindless entertainment and love of evil and rank ignorance takes up most of their non-working waking hours while around the planet, innocent blood spills into the ground because (they are the reason, there is no one else to blame for it) they go into the polls and say 'make it happen', 'don't stop' or 'more innocent blood' please, it makes me rich' 'Me too!' and so it continues on and on and on...
Yet this is still a great country even with all of its many glaring faults and finally...FINALLY a small dose of sanity is starting to be heard on Capitol Hill and the President even is I think, beginning to rethink (if not totally dismantle) his morally bankrupt, illegal, immoral and unconstitutional policies started under the Bush administration. Why am I talking about this here? Brothers, hear me on this - it is from within this system the political/economic and religious deceit emanates in our times that so much deception comes from. You cannot separate political deception and spiritual deception. It is the political systems of the last days that the book of Revelation makes plain deceives the whole world and there is a real good reason he tells us to 'come out of her'. You can start with your mind (having renewed by God (Eph 4:23-24) and once you do that, the rest will follow at the proper time. This deceptive system is already ensnaring millions of ordinary, simple and good Christians who have let their patriotism take precedence over their Christian duties and loyalties. They cease trusting God and put their trust in America's massive 'security' institutions.
We must always do as God commands FIRST. That means we always obey the law... and I mean stay well within it, unless those laws clearly demand we disobey God. We must NEVER EVER allow ourselves to become targets for being called law-breakers or criminals and thus bring dishonor on Christ. We are to show proper loyalty to our respective countries as well as praying for our leaders. That does NOT mean believing every lie, piece of propaganda and stupidity that comes out of government or our major government controlled press. But brothers, I have to tell you if you have been snookered in by the weak, obvious and laughable deceptions of today, you don't stand a snowballs chance in the 'other place' of coming out of the end times saved. I mean, a Black man stands a better chance of becoming the imperial wizard of the KKK than such a willfully blind person getting into the kingdom of heaven.
What I am saying here is what needs to be said. How you view the world we live in, the role of government, good or bad and your part in the actions of the state, especially in a democracy, is going to be a determining factor weather you stand in the end or fall for the devils deceptions. For many, they are simply going to fall away. A leader or religious institution will come along and whisk the world up into a frenzy of hope and speak to and respond to the desires of the people. Such a leader can and will take the soul of many Christian. That is why we must not ever allow lies of any kind to gain a foothold in our minds. We must saturate our minds with truth, Biblical truth and know that we are of another kingdom, an eternal one.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
What is the quickest way to backsliding and apostasy? Believing lies and walking in rebellion. But another one is frankly never progressing in your walk with God. Going down to the 'altar' as it is done today, but never growing in the Lord, never learning, never doing anything but sitting in your spiritual swaddling clothes and crying like a baby, year in and year out. This kind of Christian is ripe for deceit, if indeed they were ever truly saved in the first place and in many cases, they weren't. So keep this in mind, deceit and rebellion are two sure fire ways Christians fall away. We have talked a little about about deceit, let us talk now about rebellion.
King Asa was one of Israels better kings. God was well pleased with him as the record in the book of Kings records.
And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.
Asa did much for the Lord and God was greatly pleased. He was a no nonsense ruler who obeyed the Lord.. .well, at least mostly. Before I continue on Asa, I think I need to say this lest I be misconstrued.
Israel was very special to God. God was attempting to set up a kingdom in which God was the head and his people honored and worshiped him it was to be the real beacon of light to the world. Israel was to be an example to the rest of the world in righteousness, holiness and even splendor. A period of time that could have been typified by Solomon's reign if he had not had his head turned by all of those young women who turned him away from his God. Israel for the most part began a spiritual decent after him that culminated with the Babylonian Exile and them murdering their own Messiah. I say this here because too many Christians are attempting to make America into some kind of 'Kingdom of God' here on earth. The problem is one of dominionism mostly. These mostly American Christians have developed a heretical view of Christianity that naturally puts them (heretical Christians) at the head of todays worlds system to 'dictate' to the rest of the nations, naturally of course with them in charge of handing out lucrative government contracts and controlling the levers of state and with it the power arresting, detaining investigating those who offend their 'religion' and pocketbooks.
It is from this doctrine that many would use the above verse to start a campaign of hate against Homosexuals or even an inquisition. You cannot compare what Asa was doing then to what Christians should be doing in America today. If there is any comparison here it would be with regards to God's new kingdom, that being his Church. Sinners of all stripes are welcome, if they are willing to repent of those sins and walk the path to life. Unrepentant adulterers, murders, child molesters, thieves and yes, homosexuals are not to be granted any kind of position of authority in the Church and if they show no signs of repentance of their sins, it is from the sanctuary that they need to be cast out. The Church is what is now 'called out' of the world system (the word Church comes from the Greek word that means to be 'called out' - ekklesia) to be holy unto God and is now part of Spiritual Israel. I feel I must clarify this point here so that no one out there would misconstrue what is meant by the above passage as being that I somehow support taking away citizenship from or mistreating gays. OK, now back to backsliding...
But Asa, as good as he was began to falter and ceased believing in and trusting in God fully and began to err.
And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the LORD thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand. Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the LORD, he delivered them into thine hand. For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars. Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.This may seem like a little thing, but a lack of faith is never a little thing with God. We must trust God at all times. Rather than relying of God, Asa relied on Syria and was rebuked by a prophet for it and it was in his old age that he became diseased in his feet and the disease was a very severe one (2Chron 16:12). Like David who also sinned greatly before the Lord (murder and adultery) Asa appears to have been ultimately saved and did not lose his soul but like David, was severely chastised for his sins. Then there is the case of King Saul, who fell so far his ultimate salvation is questionable. What was Saul's sin? Disobedience. It seemed like a little thing to Saul but it wasn't to the Lord.
Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?
Often it is the little things that ultimately reveal a persons character. It is from the incident with Saul we get the phrase to 'obey is better than sacrifice and to hearken is better than the fat of rams'. In other words, God is far less interested in ritual and acts of contrition as he is in simple, honest obedience to his word and commands. Saul didn't see it that way and lost his throne and possibly his soul in the process. These are just some examples of kings in the Old Testament who slipped up pretty bad. We cannot tell the ultimate fate of these men (any of them, save David) with 100% certainty as God had not revealed to the Jews at that time just how he would judge mankind after his death. This was still very much a mystery that was not to be revealed for many years and then only as a kind of 'shadow' of the truth in the days of Daniel, when the whole idea of a real resurrection was talked about (Dan 12:2).
Let us go back and look at what Hebrews says again because I think it telling about how the standards are different for Christians in these times than they were for the Ancient Israelites. Paul makes it plain that there is a real difference when we commit apostasy, that is walking away from Christ.
He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
This is telling in that to do this thing not only tramples on Christ but insults the Holy Spirit. This brothers is indeed the only unpardonable sin (Markk 3:29). Some have wondered if a believer can commit such a sin. This verse seems to indicate that it is possible. Note here that Paul goes on to say that it is impossible to renew them unto repentance again. Why? Because the only way to get a person to repent is via the person and work of the Holy Spirit who convicts people of sin. He must convict us of sin. Without his essential work, there is no way for a man to get right with God. This is one of the reasons why this particular sin is called unpardonable. You will never get water to boil without heat and you will never save a man's soul without the work of the Holy Spirit.
So here brothers we need to understand that backsliding and apostasy are not little matters and in these days. These perilous last days are not the time to be playing games with God and walking in rebellion and sin. Stepping off of the path to life via unrepentant sin, rebellion or unbelief (faithlessness) is like playing Russian Roullete with a gun with most of the chambers full of ammunition. When was the last time you saw someone get up and start walking around again after they just blew their brains out? You want to play that game?
You now know the risks.
If you know someone who has backslidden badly your best bet is to let the elders of your Church or fellowship deal with him and stay away from him or her. Keep your distance. I am not talking about hating them at all. But when you are dealing with a backslidden person you want to keep the following passage in mind... that is first and foremost in your mind not just for your spiritual health but also for perhaps even your physical safety as well . Why? You are almost certainly dealing with evil spirits who seduced the fallen Christian away from God. Those spirits now wish to and will work overtime to gain complete control of him.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
So hear me carefully here. Those of you who come by this site regularly know that the devil is very busy these days and as we move closer and closer to the day of the Lord, we must keep in mind that the devil is going to be moving with greater speed and desperation. So my exhortation to all of you is to take heed to your own souls (read and consider Matt 10:21-26), don't slip away. That 'stream' you are tempted to jump into may not seem so dangerous but it has swept many a soul down in its current right over a thousand foot cliff with jagged rocks at the bottom of it. At the end they were a shipwreck.
May God grant each of you who truly wish to see life the ability to recognize deceit when you see it and to hold fast to your faith in these perilous times where sound doctrine is increasingly ridiculed and the devil runs far too many Churches. Get in your bibles, know the word, rightly divide it and whatever you do, don't get on a plane to Apostasy, USA no matter what travel inducements or 'frequent flier' miles the devil may offer you to get you on board. If he puts a gorgeous 20 something stewardess onboard promising you all manner of 'delights' once you get on board, don't you believe It. Satan knows what buttons to push to tempt you into his snares. Keep in mind that your return ticket may be canceled before you get a chance to use it. Then you will be stuck in Apostasy with no way out.
Those who know me know personally know that while I am not one of those 'offensive Christians' who seem more inclined to offend the lost with unsolicited sermons and opinions, I have a rock solid faith and usually only share it when asked. This is not 1st century Rome. Ninety-nine percent of Americans alive today have already heard the gospel. They don't need some opinionated, sanctimonious windbag telling them how evil they are if they don't agree with me. What they need more often than not is someone whose life is so different and that they wonder what makes them so different. That is when opportunity knocks and you have a chance to witness. But those who know me know that when I see someone who is an obstacle to my walk or is some kind of serious hindrance, they go by the wayside... quick. The devil loves to get his people sidetracked and one way he does it is via false friends and members of the opposite sex. So a word to the wise here. Be most careful whom you trust in these times, as trusting the wrong person is another road to 'backsliders alley'. The spirit of Judas is alive and well and living within the American soul, so let all of my readers take heed. Take heed to your soul, know the wiles of the devil and STAND in the evil day and whatever you do never, EVER look back.
Remember lots wife.

Central Banks Horde Gold Amidst Sudden Price Collapse
This should be no surprise. Let me let you in on a secret. When you see these big MSM financial newspapers denigrate gold to drive down the price, this is only a cover, a deception if you will so that the big boys can buy it up cheap. That the IMF report shows that is exactly what happened. The paper gold price is a joke. Its why people are demanding the real Jewelry, coins and bars. They have had enough of being tricked by the 'big boy's who are given political cover for this almost certainly criminal activity by the US legal system.
What the Fed did during this period will never be revealed. They have ways of keeping those revelations off any books anywhere and they do. They may issue some report in a few months and only allow it to be released to a pay-site like the WSJ to keep the poor plebeians from finding out what's going on and how the bailed out banks are dumping gold to allow others to horde it cheap. In the mean time what they tell us will only be half the truth... if we are lucky. All part of what is in any normal persons book is a conspiracy to defraud ordinary investors of their assets to allow them to be acquired by those who have not earned them.
This is an accursed economic system that is more and more based on unprosecuted crimes and deceit. Why is wealth so disproportionately distrusted in the US and Obama's recovery only helping the richest Americans? It's the whole rotten system.
