Police State: Major Web Portholes 'In Bed' With NSA
... the companies all deny any knowledge. This morning one of the web's premier Privacy advocated is not available in my area. I get fatal connection error when I go to EFF.org. They sent out some emails last night about all of these spying programs that are now all over the net.Ameicans Throw Out 40% Of Their Food
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. Obama will roll out the red carpet for you...
...just bring your checkbook and he will throw you a party you'll never forget!! This guy is little more than a cash register that has taken human form.
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.
If sunlight is the best disinfectant, then right now America's security apparatus is basically a dank cave far below the earth into which successive presidential administrations have been hurling vials of plague, ebola, and gangrene, with the cooperation of Congress. - Daily Kos
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.
Don't like the idea of any of this coming to America? You better speak up now...
...or forever hold your peace.
Because when they start doing things that will make anyone rise up in protest, they will be ready for you.
Shackles, chains, workbench and all.
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. Chriistian 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 that tell the truth and oppose and expose evil.
These are dangerous and deceitful times....
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
It's a wicked and wastful people that allow this when so much of the world is truly humgry and their meager income goes mostly for food.
May God requite these Wasteful Americans with the very same want they ignore in others.
Police State: NSA Orders Verizon To Give Up ALL Customer Data
.. over a period of time. This administration is out of control with its spying. It is not clear if other phone providers were also ordered to give up all of their.. sorry.... OUR data. This is a good article. Do check it out!US Revises 'Genocide Prevention' Regulations For DOD
Go back and read what I wrote a couple of days ago on wiretapping and don't let that winning smile of Obama's fool you!!
Worse than Bush and worse than Nixon. Once his adept spin machine is dismantled after this administration leaves office, this guy's legacy will be this on the lips of most Americans. Here it is:
'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.

Susan Rice Chosen As National Security Advisor
Obama lost the battle to put her at State. Rice and Clinton hated one another and Hillary worked hard to see to it that she was not appointed. She got the next best thing and there is no need for her to stand before the GOP for approval.
Insiders tell me she's isn't bad at all as far as Obamaites go. She is competent and smart and the whole Benghazi thing ... I can only say that the real story is one that both sides know and no one can talk about publicly without being labeled a 'leaker' and perhaps being sent to jail.
Those Benghazi hearings were an exercise in GOP hypocrisy. But thre is no real reason for the truth not to be told except to protect probably criminal activity by this administration.

Black Americans are nearly four times more likely to get busted for marijuana possession than white ones, even though both groups smoke pot at roughly comparable rates, the ACLU said in a report released Tuesday. The report, "The War on Marijuana in Black and White: Billions of Dollars Wasted on Racially Biased Arrests," is based on the annual FBI Uniform Crime Report and US Census Bureau Data.
Manufacturing Wages Contract
Keep in mind, this is not a 'tragedy', but a policy goal of many who have deep pockets and put lots of money into the pockets of our politicians, on BOTH sides of the aisle. Over and over again we see the same thing, working people making less and the wealthy (who have access to state capital that working people do not in the form of special access to the Federal Reserve) get richer and richer. They borrow money and 0% and lend it to us at 20% rob us of our wages and then get our President to use his vast spying police-state powers to stifle honest and peaceful dissent.EU Fires First Volley In China Trade War
There is no one else to blame for these economic policies than the man who sits in the 'big chair'. He does his best to evade responsibility by not saying or doing anything and pretending it's not happening while millions, LITERALLY MILLIONS of Americans head over to apply for food stamps.
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.
The Great Debate: Helicopter Money
This is an interesting and timely piece. Why? Because it looks like QE is getting ready to come to an end. What will that mean? In order to pay for our government a new form of money printing will be needed. Since Congress nor the President plan on reigning in spending, printing is the only option available. This article only talks about alternative methods of printing.Turkey: Protests Continue, Gov't Softens Tone
In other words, its a debate about what the Fed is going to do next.
Now, the Unions have joined in. The government did offer an apology for its violent repression.

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.
Patriot missiles and F-16's are on the way to Jordan. If I had to render a guess (just a guess) both Israel and Jordan lobbied for this more as a defensive measure against increasing Syrian aggression against Lebanon. But we are slowly being drawn into what may turn out to be a nasty regional war.
Obama Set To Back Wiretapping Backdoor For Google, Twitter, etc.
They want to force all social media to build backdoor's in their software so the cops and intelligence agencies and listen to everything.
Is Obama worse than Nixon? Certainly. But the real question is this, is he worse that Hitlers Gestapo and brothers that is not a rhetorical question.
Gestapo agents and informants concentrated on finding suspected political dissidents of the Third Reich. Spying on citizens became pervasive, and the Gestapo encouraged people to turn in "suspect persons" to local authorities. - FAQs.orgHe's erecting this system right before our eyes and liberals have gone into a deep, deep sleep while he does it. More on the Gestapo here. 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.

Keep this in mind, someone is going to a WHOLE lot of trouble to pull these references off the net.
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.

New!! Watson's Economic And Political Review: Earth Trends
This is not another paper about Global Warming. Rather, it discusses many other trends in the earths ecosystems that are in crisis and sadly are not being talked about much in the Mainstream. A lot is talked in this paper: desertification, dead zones, radiation, Colony Collapse Disorder and GMO's as well as other issues that are more urgent than the Global warming debate that our elite are talking about.
These changes have enormous prophetic significance. We fool ourselves when we don't delve into these matters with some determination to get to the bottom of them. The scriptures are abundantly clear that the earth will change significantly as we move into and through the last days just before Christ's return. Just like clockwork, with all of the other prophecies lining up just as foretold, so are the earth changes or better named 'earth judgment' prophecies lining up just like the Bible said they would, with large swaths of the oceans dying off, the earth warming, and a wide range of new pestilences that are hitting not just humans, but the world's food supply that are widely unreported to the masses. Our world's ecosystems are under attack and I use that word very carefully.
For those without the hope of Christ, there will be no hope. The earth and the life systems thereon are going to get to the point of near extinction. So says Christ (Matt 24:22) and it is only because God intervenes to shorten the days that keeps all flesh (animal life) from becoming a thing of the past. Mankind's future is not evolution, what we have here is de-evolution; man will not 'evolve' into anything higher than a self destructive disease (the end result of his sinfulness) that the worms that will consume, those vile but busy creatures who await the royal festival that awaits fallen mankind as he careens towards self destruction willingly and with great scientific engineering skill... all for money. The epitaph of lost man should read, died of violent insanity - he wasn't happy until he killed everything that lived for a dollar bill. He killed his brother in wars, his children with drones, his fish with radiation, his animals with growth hormones, his people with GMO's and drugs, his ecosystems with super secret bio-weapons targeting his agricultural production and jailed those who cried out about these evils. God made a mistake when he made man and tells us so in the book of Genesis, yet he still deeply loves the race of men who are made in his image.
As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
I do not think there are more important issues out there, not even wars than the kinds of changes taking place in the world's ecosystems and oceans, most of them man made. The only issue of greater importance is man's need to get himself correct with the God of all things. Dump the sin, embrace righteousness; love and respect life (all life) and reject the ways of death that man has fallen so deeply in love with.

If you don't think these changes are going to effect the average ordinary American TV and sports addict, you are in for a rude awakening.BIS, IMF Castigate Fed, EU Money Printing
The tragedy is that many of the changes taking place are clearly man made and can be avoided with a little less greed and a little more forethought and respect for God's creation.
Money printing is the easy way out. But it undermines currencies and ultimately working people and savers are the ones who get hurt because they are the ones hurt when bread rises to six bucks a loaf and their savings are robbed because the dollars in the account don't buy half of what it used to.IRS Official Takes The 5th
So it is natural that Central bankers and the major US/EU banks who run the worlds central banks use it this method instead of fixing the underlying structural problems. The banks get the new funny-money and Joe Sixpac has to pay it back. It's a win-win for them and lose-lose for you.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
I think this story and the previous one are just signposts on the road to the above verse in scripture. Central bankers are less concerned about you than they are keeping the hot money flowing into their banks so they can go around the world and buy up farmland, technology, mining resources and infrastructure. For them it's a no brainer, you pay for it and they get to own it and most people have no idea what is going on. Naturally Helicopter Ben does not agree about printing money. He wants to keep on printing away for his buddies on Wall Street while trying to convince you it is for a 'recovery'.
All of this talk of deflation? Well clearly there is a major risk here but the deflation that we would have experienced is just prices of real things coming back into line with reality, not the inflated asset prices we had that led to the crisis in the first place. Without the printing and reflation, the banks would cease to be and we would have a real recovery that benefited everyone, after a few months of pain.

And the CSPAN video is strangely 'unavailable'ACLU Sues Over Illgeal DOJ Records Seizure
AntiWar.com Sues Over Illegal DOJ Records Seizure
From what I am hearing about this from some clued in folks is that there was not even a signed subpoena authorizing this AP records seizure. They just went in and did it! The law requires at the very least a subpoena. When the Justice Department refuses to follow the law, it's no longer a law enforcement agency, but a criminal one. The DOJ is filled with Lawyers why did no one get a signed subpoena? Now all the top dogs at Justice are pointing fingers at each other "I didn't do it, he did it", that is now the refrain heard at the Hoover building.
This was the last straw, I think finally Obama realizes that Holder is not up to this job and as much as I hate to agree with the guys on the right side of the aisle, Holder just appears to be incompetent and just based on the things he has done these past four and half years, his record seems to demonstrate that he has a deep contempt for our Free Press and civil liberties. But if you really track back, a lot of Obama's troubles in not keeping his promises track back to the DOJ and the legal frameworks for everything from Spying to Drone assassinations, to the extreme use of the Patriot act, leak persecutions (not a mis-spell), to expanding the definitions of 'terrorism' , even perhaps to the non-closure of Guantanamo. All of these things require key and significant input from the DOJ. We can see what the polices turned out to be and can get a pretty good idea what the DOJ's recommendations have been, '"To hell with rights and the Constitution and the law Mr. President, do what you want to do, take what you wanna take and kill who you want to kill, we'll prepare a memo to that effect at your convenience."
I have long suspected that someone had the 'goods' on Holder and that he was marching to a tune that was designed to do two things - Undermine the President's campaign pledges and create further distrust between the government and the people. I fully admit I may very well be wrong, but if I am not, it would explain a great many things.
I do not want to go an a personal attack here but simply put, we need someone at Justice who can balance the need for security with press and personal freedoms and do it in a way that is 100% consistent with our Constitutional form of government. In this, I think Holder has failed and failed miserably.
It's time for him to go.

Obama Attempts To Put Key Donor In At Commerce
A failed bank in her portfolio and the very kind of financial dealings that brought us the crisis in 2008 are all being questioned about Ms. Pritzker.Iranian Christians Request Prayer
The truth be told, she was Obama's key backer from the very beginning. Well as you can see, the lady has a lot of black folks in Chicago who work for her not happy with this pick. And many of her financial dealings are shall we say... "things that make you go hmmmm...." She has raised a lot of money for Obama.
She clearly is a smart lady with profound business experience and commerce has always gone to those who can 'pay' for the post. So this is really nothing more than the usual DC legalized corruption. I don't think she will be any better or worse than anyone else who shells out millions for a key government post.
But that post is also a very sensitive one especially in these times of deep rooted espionage in our government and major corporations that interact closely with Commerce. Take some time and read this one and perhaps you can get a better idea as to what is really expected of a Commerce Secretary and then perhaps some smart questions can be at least asked, if not answered.
Iranian Christians have requested our prayers following the arrest yesterday morning (21st May) of Robert Asserian, a pastor of the Assemblies of God (AoG) church in Tehran. Security forces made the arrest as Pastor Robert was leading a prayer meeting at the church. They had earlier raided his house and confiscated personal belongings, including computer equipment and books. His whereabouts are unknown.Spiritual Assault: Attacked In The Night
Pressures on the AoG and other officially recognized churches increased during 2012, with greater surveillance and restrictions imposed and with the closure of some services, especially Friday or Farsi-language services. These pressures have continued during 2013. Leaders of the AoG church in Tehran informed their members on 19th May that major changes to the church’s activities were under consideration due to increasing pressure from the authorities. - ME Concern

CBS Reporters Computers Comprimised
DOJ denies 'knowlege' of any such compromise.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
What time is it? Genuine Christians who have not fallen asleep or been hoodwinked by the spirit of this age know that we are in the last days. For we see many antichrists in our world. One of the greatest feats that the devil committed was to cease fighting the Church and get hired to preach sermons in it on Sunday Morning. Across America you can hear the devil speak from many pulpits that call themselves Christian. Now brethren, I speak here not of all Churches, but of many who have laid aside any thought of teaching sound biblical doctrine and have given themselves over to political correctness, fables and sermons which place money in their coffers. These are the doctrines that are taught in far too many of America's Churches.
Yes, the devil is very smart. As my mother used to say, "The devil never comes into a place with great iron shoes, clanking about the place identifying himself. No, he comes in on tippy-toes quietly so that no one notices his arrival" Then he moves quietly and when possible, in secret. Before you know it, he is running the place and the people don't even know it. That is how the devil has done a number on our Churches and the American nation. He has used great subtlety to gain control of large swaths of American Christianity. Let me ask you this - How many major American denominations are controlled by or have high level Freemasons (secretly) in high office in their denominations? More than a few I can tell you. They creep in secretly and have another agenda than preaching Christ and can set the agenda for the denomination for years to come.
Brothers the same can be said of our own government. Why is it so obsessed with secrecy? Things that have no business being classified but are? Our leaders have moved with great speed to protect nations who have attacked us repeatedly and viciously. They are no longer really leaders, but men who have taken money from these very same nations to get elected in OUR country and then protect them when they attack us right here on US soil. There is a name for such leaders and I don't think you need to tell you what that word is.
Satan thrives in secrecy; he loves it when his deeds go unnoticed. When he is up to no good, he casts a pall of secrecy over his work. The Nazi death camps? They were a state SECRET from most people. Only a precious few were granted official knowledge of this demonic work. So when you see governments and leaders whose whole thrust and major policy seems to be shrouded in deep secrecy you are dealing with something the devil is using for his purposes. He does not want his works exposed to the light so he hides them behind laws and classifications so that you never find out what he is doing behind the wall. In short, this is one of the sure signs of the spirit of antichrist; a nation-state, political leaders, religious institution or corporation bent on and obsessed with secrecy.
This spirit of antichrist is pervasive in our times. I see all this crap on TV and I am amazed at how deep the spirit has permeated our society. Gay sex in major TV shows, witchcraft, gratuitous violence... this stuff is everywhere. But no one marks it. It shows you the lateness of the hour. It shows you just what Christ said it would be like before he returned. Many nominal Christians would be caught unawares, not watching, but rather slumbering and falling victim to the devils most carefully laid lures and deceptions. Take heed, those unprepared and asleep don't get in (read the parable of the 10 virgins)
I think it important here that I make proper use of the term antichrist. Most people use the term to describe the coming man of sin (as described by Paul). I do not think the term as used in this fashion is incorrect, rather it lacks the biblical accuracy as to the use of the term. So let us take a quick look at every place the word is used.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.These are the only places where the term antichrist is used and it refers to a false RELIGIOUS spirit. Keep that in mind as you read on.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
I have heard more than a few people tell me that Muslims believe in Jesus and thus are saved. This is simply not the case in a Biblical sense. While it is true that Muslims acknowledge him as a kind of prophet, they do not acknowledge him as Christ nor as the Son of God. They do not acknowledge that he is the King of Kings nor as the Lord of Lords. Nor do they believe that is rose from the dead in the final step in the atonement work for the the sins of mankind. In other words, they have another Jesus they have created to serve not the God of the Bible, but the Koran. One need only look at the mass of persecution going on against Christians to see that this is hardly a religion that honors Christ or his followers in any way shape or form.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
Do Muslims acknowledge Jesus as the Christ? Nope. What spirit do they have? It's right there in your Bible and if you are capable of and willing to read, it's also in your newspapers and blogs as well. You just have to start listening to and believing God and cease giving ear to the spirit of antichrist to figure it out.
Now the last thing I want to do here is to get folks to start hating or mistreating Muslims. I will never do that nor should any genuine Christian. Hate is not what Christ is about. He is about love and getting folks to get right with God, with faith, repentance and love. So how do we get folks from following after the many spirits of antichrist that are in the world today? The most important step is by living our lives like real Christians, doing right and let our actions and behavior truly reflect the high standards of personal integrity and spirituality that God demands of those he calls his sons and daughters. Those who are his have come to God on HIS terms and have not used an overactive imagination to make up their own religion based on what they want God to be, but rather on what God has revealed himself in the person and work of Christ. In short, God's true people have not created a God after their own desires as so many people, including too many Christians have done. Let the reader take heed and be wise here, one way leads to life, the other to spiritual deception.
So let us not give heed to the many spirits of antichrist that are present in our sick and dying world. The devil can't tell you anything but lies and if you listen to him long enough, you will get sucked down the vortex of delusion with the rest of the world, whom God even now is starting to send the strong delusion (2Thes 2:11ff).

Yet we only seem to hear from the atheistic ones in our media. Why is that? Well in some cases not all of these guys are really atheists.
One individual who works shall we say in 'the worlds shadows' and is exceptionally clued in shared this with me a few years ago. He said that when a person is singled out into a satanic coven, especially a well connected one, doors that would open up for them that would never open up for others. Be it in Science, Corporate America, Entertainment, Politics, you name it. A wink and a nod from the more powerful satanists gets folks 'in' and as long as they spout their satanic madness when called upon and do the devils work in their new found positions, more and more power flows to them. Indeed the devil does take care of his own for as long and ONLY as long as they are of use to his nefarious purposes. The tragedy is that once in, there is no way out. Those who try find that they can't.
Keep that in mind as you watch many of these so called 'atheists' out there whose whole demeanor changes when they go on their rants against Christians. There is a spirit behind it and unlike most folks, these guys know exactly what spirit it is.
Food for thought.

EU Oil Price Fixing Scandal Widens
EU Loses It's Luster
The EU has great troubles. Really big ones and they are not going away anytime soon. These unemployment numbers touted in the mainstream. They are pipe dreams. One insider intimated to me that the real figures for unemployment in Spain is much closer to 50%. That is right HALF of all Spaniards are unemployed (these are semi-official numbers not released to the public). Truth be told, overall, the pain in Spain is worse than our Greek brothers feign. Its pretty bad and can be seen in the many acts of desperation. One is the number of women who are turning to Prostitution. The situation in many places is very severe with rates of unemployment by some estimates as high as 70% in some areas.
Drug abuse in some areas that were once tourist havens has risen and there is no end in sight. Even now, old American geezers are heading to Spain to hook up with a twenty-something Spanish hottie to marry. I kid you not, this is the new destination for old dudes with a little money. Many of these women are more than willing if the old dude has a little cash.
So while I often talk about the crisis in Europe in terms of GDP and new policies, know that the human toll is very real and still deepening.
Apology...Dozens Of Tornado's Bring Destruction To Plains
Well today, I have a humble apology to make. First off, I have since discovered that the IRS scandal, the targeting of Christian, Tea Party AND pro-life groups was NOT known by the President. In fact, he was intentionally and very carefully kept out of the political loop while these actions/crimes were transpiring. And when he found out he went ballistic and a diatribe of 4-letter words streamed forth from his mouth. In short, this was a plot hatched by the Democratic Party and IRS insiders who decided that the President was never to be informed about their activities. That is why the IRS director was fired so quickly. He went to work the next morning and was met by a Policeman telling him he no longer had a job!
Yes, apparently the President was very, very angry and still is. Rumor has it that another major Administration head is getting ready to fall. The illegal seizure of AP records (it was clearly and blatantly illegal, there is no question about this even inside the administration) has made it clear that Justice needs someone with more competence in charge of it. From this, to the the DOJ running guns to Mexican Drug Lords to a host of other scandals and extra-constitutional actions, it's time for Holder to go. He has done a terrible job in many respects but can claim some minor credit in prosecuting some small fish in the financial scandals. I think he is probably aware that his number is up and probably is not all that unhappy about it.
Yet having said all of this and apologizing here I do want to say that the IRS scandal... the President should have known. He should have enough eyes and ears inside his own administration to ensure that those kinds of abuses don't happen. Clearly he has created an environment that lets those under him believe that they can do those things and get away with it. Clearly the money he took from groups that oppose pro-life and Churches gave them the impression that the President would give them a 'pass' if discovered. A good leader would never let such an impression be formed by his underlings. A bad leader would.
Our religious liberties are not to be taken for granted and what the Democratic Party did was launch a serious assault on those liberties when they began questioning people abut the content of their prayers. So far the only groups targeted for 'Special Treatment' were Christians but I think more revelations are forthcoming...
Obama Continues War On Press Freedoms
It's sad when they go after the press who has not signed any non-disclosure agreement. The whole purpose of this seems to be to relegate to Press to only regurgitating White House press releases as news and cast a pall over any kind of investigative reporting. The only time a reporter should be targeted is if they bribed, blackmailed or otherwise used some inducement or threat to gain access to classified information.The only other exception is if the Journalist is clearly in the pay of a foreign power.

The real spirit of Islamic fanaticism is descended from Adolph Hitler whose lieutenants set many things in motion after WWII in the Islamic world that today is bearing its satanic fruit.
A Word Of Exhortation From A Reader

Shabbat Shalom!Rise Up Or Die
It is essential that you read this article and prayerfully consider what the author is saying.
Given Obama's record of deceit, arrogance, unbridled lust for power, contempt for the rule of law, and the spirit of antichrist he is increasingly manifesting, this appears to be a very likely scenario. Perhaps much sooner than many of us would like to think.
The U.S. is headed for a direct military confrontation with Russia (and likely China too) over Syria and, behind that, access to the oil in Iran.
Israel is right in the middle of this. Add to that the onslaught of the spirit of antichrist here and around the world. Then consider the biblical prophecies of Mystery Babylon, the ruthless beast system that will rule the world for a season and the harlot that sits on the beast. Add to these the four horsemen and the bowls, seals and trumpet judgments/woes of God's judgment.
We are in EXTREMELY dangerous times - physically and more important, spiritually. Deception, lawlessness and rebellion against God and His Anointed One are rampant in the world and the professing church.
My point? We have a rapidly narrowing window in which to prepare for what seems very certain to come. Physical preparations such as food, water, medications, gold and/or silver (for when the U.S. economy inevitably collapses) and means of self-defense are essential. These, however, will not ultimately save us.
The greatest danger facing every one of us is spiritual. Many professing believers I know seem to be oblivious to the nature, power and extent of the forces of hell that have already been unleashed against us. The scriptures are absolutely clear that this will increase exponentially when the abyss is opened and the dragon is given power to both wear out and overcome the saints.
Many professing believers also seem oblivious to the scriptural warnings that MANY will fall from the faith and ultimately deny the LORD in order to save their lives. This can happen to any of us if we are not diligent and underestimate satan's wiles and power to deceive!!
As the LORD Himself warned - because lawlessness will abound, the love of many (professing believers included) will grow cold. The only way any of us will spiritually survive what is coming is to throw off every sin that entangles and use all diligence to ensure we are abiding and hidden in Christ. We MUST be clothed in His power, authority and anointing so that we can be led by the Holy Spirit and guard our hearts in the midst of chaos, fear, lawlessness and great spiritual darkness.
Beware and let no man deceive you!!
Extreme spiritual danger lies in unforgiveness, loving the world and the things therein, loving our present life and trying to save it, trying to serve two masters, being hearers but not doers of the Word, and not striving with all diligence to stay on the narrow path and enter through the narrow gate.
Torah/Bible study and discussion alone will not suffice. Arguing over Jewish fables and pouring over the minutae of the Law (and especially the Jewish oral law) will not save you from the wrath of the dragon. And neither will soulish praise and worship without clean hands and a pure heart.
Again, do not be deceived!! The time is very short.
Our focus must be on prayer, intercession, building each other up in the LORD, encouraging one another to grow to maturity, walking in the gifts of the Spirit, being filled with the Spirit to overflowing, being ready in and out of season, testing the spirits, withdrawing from those - especially pastors, teachers, elders, and so-called prophets or apostles - who do not abide and hold to sound doctrine, and abounding in His love and good works.
As it is written, the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Perhaps we will be caught up to meet the LORD before these things come to pass. Perhaps ...
But what if that does not happen?? What if we are still here to face the wrath and fury of the dragon who knows he has but a short time??
I know genuine believers will not face the wrath of God. But there is no guarantee we can escape from the wrath of the dragon ... What, then, is the conclusion of the matter?
Watch and pray, that you will be able to escape the things which are coming upon the world, and that you may be counted worthy to stand before the Son of Man.
Grace and peace to all who love the Lord Jesus in sincerity.
Chris Hedges writes an interesting piece on our troubled times. His is a treatise of rebellion, which while I might on some level sympathize with, I cannot agree with. Nevertheless, it is well written and informative.DetroitLooks Towards Bankruptcy

Don't get fooled here, this gold fiasco is all about the paper, not the real stuff which insiders are buying up like there is no tomorrow. When the elites go on the offensive like they have on Gold, WATCH WHAT THEY DO, not what they say.
