One Step Closer Part 2

November 30, 2016

One Step Closer Part 2

I tried to identify some of the reasons, however, the more I write, the more it becomes apparent that this is a big wad of pasta noodles. To get to one point means untangling the entire mess.

Lets look deeper, ok?

There are some who say that we need to just be out of the Middle East. That to be involved is just a disaster waiting to happen. On the outside that would be a good assessment...however, its too late for that. We have to acknowledge that we screwed up and in a big way.

You see, President Obama ran on a promise to get out of the Middle East. If that is the case, why are we still there? Why are we providing so many weapons? So our Nobel Peace Prize President makes a claim that He's really good at killing people.

Please take a minute and watch the video

So now, who's our Daddy?

Saudi Arabia owns us, lets face it. Our addiction to oil has us scraping the barrel like a junkie. We had no choice...that is until we started to regularly produce our own supplies. Remember $3.00 plus a gallon gas? What happened? American ingenuity and the entrepreneurial spirit took over and we found ways to produce our own oil. We drilled and separated from shale and oil sand. Then our good friends the Saudis started dropping the price.

Generous weren't they? No, quite the opposite...they wanted to put small oil companies out of business. You know, eliminate the competition. It also looks like our own production killed off our own rally, Crazy as it seems, the oil companies were pretty leveraged out, meaning they borrowed money to lease or buy equipment. So when the prices started to drop...oops. They say over 175 oil companies could go bankrupt this year alone.

So what do the Saudis really want? Money? No, they have enough for many lifetimes. They want us to protect them, while they spread their radical terrorist Wahhabiasm. These wealthy elite cowards need protection from...drum roll please...Iran. Yeah the Shiite minorities want nothing more than to shove a nuclear weapon up The Saudi monarchies keister...and the Saudis know that, and they are afraid. Oh and the Iranians also want Israel destroyed and the US destroyed too, just had to add that.

I dont know if the House of Saud is fearful of President Donald Trump, but they better be mindful of him. President Trump isnt a globalist, they better  understand that if they want a relationship with the US. Its going to be a different game with Trump. I for one am really glad of it too. Lets leave that for a moment, and maybe that will be the topic for another time.

Sorry for my rant...

Back to Israel and Russia...

Now yesterday I posed a question. That was, if Mexico had intentions to protect their military bases and put a S400 system near the southern US border. How would the US respond?

We know how they would respond. The same way they responded when Cuba allowed The Soviets to use their island to base nuclear missiles. We were very, very close to nuclear war at that time.

If Russia wants to blanket Israel with radar and a very plausible threat to deny airspace, while giving Israel's enemies cover to move weapons and men...Israel will attack. You cant blame them either. You did notice that Russia moved their ONLY aircraft carrier off the coast of Syria, right?

Now we are getting reports that the submarine game is going full steam ahead. Oh by the way Israel has the German made Daulphin class submarines. Very quiet and nuclear missile capable. Quiet enough to give our submarines a fit, and powerful enough to sink a certain smoke spewing aircraft carrier.

It was also reported that a Dutch sub, was chased out of the area by Russian ships. You read that right, a Dutch sub...operating off Syria, gathering intelligence on the Russians. Please pass the popcorn, this is getting exciting.

Its getting tight in Syria. For sure. All the players are unashamedly showing up...except for Iran. I expect that to change too.

Where is this leading? You would think that the God who put Israel back together would have something to say about all this, right? Im sure the backroom dealings, the intrigue and overall carnage would get the Creators attention, right?

Well, it has.

Lets step back for a minute. God spoke through his prophet Isaiah about 700 years before Jesus Christ walked this planet, that puts this about 2700-2800 years ago.

Isaiah 42: 8-9  I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

He told Isaiah that He alone is God, and there is no other, and that He will tell of things from the end to the beginning. That is one of Gods messages to man.

In the next chapter He tells Israel, 43:1 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.

If there is any doubt about the status of Israel, lets put that to rest right now. Now, because of Israel's sin against God, He kicked them out of the land and scattered them across the world. It was this way til 1948, when Israel became a nation again, and the entire weight of the Jew hating world came crashing down on them. However, God raised up a nation to protect them. That nation was US. We had Israels back and sometimes that relationship was rocky, and sometimes sweet. But they were always, always special in our sight. As Christians we know the importance of Israel.

We read in Ezekiel 36, God told the land to get ready for His peoples return. Israel went from a dust and rock filled land to a green food producing nation, now exporting produce around the globe. In Ezekiel 37 we read that God told the "dry bones" to come together. This is the Israeli people.

This begs the question, how does our situation right now compare to the Biblical prophecy?

There is so much materiel that it becomes almost impossible to put this together in a simple blog format.

My brother-in-law and I were having breakfast at the local diner the other day. I talked with him about how our elections have changed the dynamic of the Middle East. He raised a point that stuck with me. He slid his coffee cup to the edge of the table and said "One day we will go off the edge, and maybe we are at the edge right now, but Gods hand is holding us back from crashing."

Good analogy.

Just because we have elected Mr Trump, and he has given us his word that Israel will not be treated like Obama treated them...our nation is set to crash.

I dont see a Make Us Great Again in our near future. Its not that we cant be great again, we certainly can, its that in order to be great again we need the hand Almighty God to guide us and there are too many in this land that hate that idea.

One Step Closer

November 29, 2016

One Step Closer....

I guess its almost like we have to live our lives in denial if we are to maintain any semblance of normalcy. I mean, how involved in world events do we need to be to live a peaceful life?

Think about that for a minute. Who of us wakes up in the morning and prepares for a day of war, hunger, disease, political turmoil or international deception?

When I say "Us" I mean those numerically few folk who actually read this blog. I am not saying that we are special or protected or different...we are just not actively involved in the worlds horrors right now. I believe that will soon change.

This week something happened, which the folks who are watching, knew would take place. That is, ISIS has gotten to the Northern Israeli border and made an attack on Israel. Israel responded in the way Israel responds, aircraft blowing up the truck and killing the 4 ISIS thugs. 

To someone just taking a casual read of the news, we would give a fist pump and cheer on Israel.

However, there's much, much more to this and Id like to work through it with you.

First of all this Syria thing doesn't make much sense. I mean you have a country where the leader is being targeted by the US to be removed. Long gone are the days when our country would help nations by putting in water systems, establishing hospitals or generally being a help. No, we have made it our policy that either you accept our brand of lifestyle/politics or we will remove you...even if it means we will actively foment civil war in your country and kill hundreds of thousands of your people.

Sound far fetched? The stuff of fiction writers?

Thank you WikiLeaks.

Ok so lets take a step back. The major players in the Islamic thughood are Shiite and Sunni. Make no mistake about it, they HATE each other. Hate is bred into their souls from birth...its what they know and they dont care as it is their 'Honor' to hate their enemies.

Shiite are Saudis, Qataris, Indonesians....and are about 85% of total muslim population.

Sunni's are Iraninans...and are about 15% of muslim population.

A WikiLeaks email from the Clinton camp stated that the 'Government of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, our supposed "allies and friends" are funding ISIS directly. Let that sink in for a minute. ISIS is being funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Yeah the very people we went to war to protect are guilty of murdering thousands and thousands of people in a very brutal way. Heads hacked off? Burned alive? Sex Slaves? All funded by the Saudis and Qataris.

President Obama is as guilty as sin in this matter. It was his inability to lead in the Middle East and subsequent turning our backs on the people we recently died over...and handed them all over to this group. His bowing down to the Saudi king at the start of his Presidency was a slap to the face of every American.

Its stuff like this that makes my blood boil...but I know that this is not who we really are. I know that the majority of our people are proponents of the good and not the evil.

Ok so we know the divisions...Lets now look at why ISIS attacking Israel is so important.

Im posting a map to make it easier to understand.

Ok so lets look at a couple of areas that are important. First of all, notice that small area in northern Israel next to the Lake Tiberias, or as we Christians know it as the Sea of Galilee. The map reads, Golan Heights. This is important because this strip of land is vital to Israel's security. It is the high ground, if you hold it you can defend...if you lose it, everything below you is ripe for any and all artillery.

The Golan is also important because of one other thing...oil. Israel discovered a couple of years ago, the largest deposits of oil sands ever...ever.

Now, there is one country who totally covets oil, that is Russia. Russia has oil and natural gas, but because it is so hard to get to, its expensive. Russia also uses oil and natural gas to control those nations they supply...namely Europe.

So now, we have this tin pot dictator who rules brutally, that is Bashar al-Assad. This guy has stood up to the rebellion in his country, one that we probably had our hands in. He needs help, and along comes Putin and Russia.

The Russians desperately want and covet a warm water they have been now given carte blanche from the port at Latakia. Look this up on the map...its important.

Now, Russia moved in and set up camp in a permanent way...they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Part of this permanence is their very good air defense systems. After all Russia has enemies. The system Russia installed at Latakia is their S-400 Triumpf anti aircraft missile system. The video below explains what this system is.

Notice the effective range of the radar and of the missiles. 400 Kms for the missiles and 600Kms for the radar. If you draw a line down from Latakia, due south...Jerusalem is 420 Kms. In other words, every time a jet lands or takes off in Israel, they are in the crosshairs of this missile system.

Lets put this in perspective. Lets say that Mexico wants to protect a military base near the US border. They install a S400 and it covers all the way to Phoenix Arizona or Dallas do you think that would sit with us?

So Israel attacks a ISIS group near the Golan Heights...and a Russian radar technician is watching on a screen, his finger near the fire button. step closer.

What Are We Witnessing?

November 28, 2016

What are we witnessing?

Yesterday I got into a conversation with someone on a "faith" type website. These sites draw all types, especially those to argue against God and those who liberalize God.

This person I talked with basically said to me, "Where did God say..." she then added "God...not Paul not Leviticus." In other words, she asked 'prove to me that God said it.'

My reply to her was that it didn't matter whether I could prove anything to her, what mattered was whether she believed it and what effect that would have on her life. So, nothing happened...

I have found that when people say, "Paul said this or it doesn't mean anything," then it doesn't matter what is said after that, your argument is null and void.

So does God want us to stand up to these people and argue for what we believe? Yes He does. In Jude 1:3
 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

So I accept that and will contend for my faith. The next question needs to be asked, to what end? What is the end result of contending for our faith? Is this thing we believe just some warm fuzzy? or is it a cool thing to do on Sunday, a way to make business contacts? Make friends?...why do what we do?

Well, lets look at what our world will look like WITHOUT Christ. The nation of Venezuela is a seething reeking crap hole right now. Venezuela used to be a prosperous country, until Socialism. Hugo Chavez came on the scene and did what Socialists do...they foment unrest and pit one group of people against another. When Socialists pit one group against another its usually along economic lines. It goes something like this: Dont you hate rich people? They stole their money, your money...Dont you hate paying college tuition?...Dont you hate paying for Medical? Dont you hate...just fill in the blank for the next social hot button.

So the people, the faceless masses, all in these liars and thugs into office.

And yet people in the US continue to entertain this philosophy.

Jesus said (Matthew 24: 1-13) that in the end times that we would see famines, earthquakes and disease in various places. He also added that these are the Beginning of Sorrows. A term used by Jesus to describe the times of pain, suffering and death.

Are we witnessing the time of the end?

I believe we are.

Using The Bible To Further Your Own Agenda

November 27, 2016

Using the Bible to further your own agenda.

Every day I receive a blast from Google on topics I have deemed important enough to highlight. Its a good way for me to have news articles based on Key words sent to me. One of those key words is 'Bible'

You would be amazed at the articles floating around the electronic universe with 'Bible' in the headlines.

After a couple of years of articles, its become very obvious that The Bible is used by both 'Liberal Left' and 'Conservative Right' to prove their points, justify their thoughts and actions, to bash those on the opposite end of the Scripture verse...and generally to make themselves sound more important than they really are.

Lets look at some of these headlines of articles or blogs from some of the websites;

7 Top Bible Verses about Immigration (This author has many articles called the 7 Best or 7 Most popular etc) This particular article will use the Bible to lead one to believe that ALL Immigration is to be protected. What the author fails miserably to say is that our nation has some of the best opportunities for Immigrants. If you are to take the author seriously, you'd be made to feel guilty for opposing "Illegal Immigration". Lets ask the Europeans how thats working for them...who are battling a massive crime waves from "Legal Immigration" Do you think God would approve of this? However, you do not see ANY Bible verses from this author concerning rape, robbery or murder.

The majority of the "news" I receive from Google on Keyword Bible comes from sites such as Patheos. This site bills itself as Hosting the Conversation on Faith. In examining some of the subsections, you'd think they were the ones who created the bumper sticker you usually see on Toyota Prius's "Coexist" The Blog areas are identified as; Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Evangelical, Progressive, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan and Athiest...yeah I guess Athiesm is now identified as a faith.

I am working my way through the Progressive Christian Channel. I don't agree with Progressives in 99% of what they preach, teach or how they rule. If we didn't have 8 years of Progressive leadership in Washington DC, it might be different. However, now that I've seen Progressives up close and personal, they hold nothing for me or other Conservative Christians. I find it difficult to side up to 'Christians', Progressive or Conservative, who knowingly take the Bible and its teachings and then exclude the teachings and examples that they find 'inconvenient' or not fitting into their personal or public narrative.

Post Thanksgiving

November 25, 2016

Post Thanksgiving...a time for stretchy pants and leftovers

Its now 0400 and I am in my happy place. I've been up for an hour, made my strong freshly ground coffee with my Danish Technivorm coffee maker, read Matthew Chapter 14, prayerfully am still totally amazed how Jesus could feed over 10,000 people with just a few loaves of bread and some small fish...all of this after his cousin John was beheaded. I don't see that I would have been that gracious.

Yesterdays meal was over the top and I pulled it off without a hitch, thank you God! My digital thermometer went bonkers, so I had to go by time and feel with the turkey. If was a fear that this bird wouldn't have been thoroughly cooked, but it was. Here's a hint for next Thanksgiving. Those .39 a pound frozen rock solid turkeys, with a 3-4 day defrost AND a 18-24 brine, are NO DIFFERENT tasting than a fresh 1.29 a pound bird. We had a 24 pound bird that was flavorful, juicy and tender.

Blue thoughts are they are good for certain situations. For a married couple who both work and want something different, good stuff. Also they will have you cooking things that you normally wouldn't use, and the eye-opening experience of have strange things explode flavor into your palates, is super cool.

Our new flavors are Butternut Squash, Persimmons and pickled onions.

I really feel for those who had family members who were so bent out of shape over the recent elections that it effected their holiday celebration.

It used to be that way with my Dad. My Pops was a Union Machinist, and a staunch Democrat from the word go. I grew up rebelling against that system and became an Independent voter and thinker. However, every year we delicately tred around politics. Both my Mom and I were "Born-Again Christians" and conservative in our ways, so naturally there was conflict not only during Thanksgiving, but during a political season.

My Dad, although a Democrat, would have hated this Democrat party. He was certainly old-school, and I miss him so very much. My Pops came to know the Savior later in life and I have no doubt that I'll get to see him again.

Change of subject....

I started doing some leather work recently. In doing so I found that I like it. So I decided to do some Christmas gifts. My first gift is a suede pencil roll for my daughters artist best friend, and the second is a lambskin bag for my daughter.

I found out real quick that you cant decently hand stitch soft leathers. They just flop around too much. A machine is required and with a machine comes sewing lessons on how to use the thing...ok So yesterday spend a few hours trying my best to CALMLY thread and use my new Janome machine on practice cloth, and I did...yeah!!!

Today I start leather.

Since Ive gone down this road, Ive had many thoughts on how I can use this machine to make stuff that might be useful to a gun toting, truck driving, Bible reading man or woman.

My daughter Jaden put a seed in my brain. She told me yesterday that she was followed by a strange guy as she was checking into a motel. Now Jaden is a pharmacist and has a pistol carry permit in Oregon. I asked her where her pistol was, and "I left it at home". That'll do you no good.

So Im thinking how about a nice leather hand bag with a built in holster? 

Im still pondering the possibilities.

Your thoughts?

November 23. 2016.

The day before Thanksgiving. Arguably the largest family gathering and the most complicated meal of the year.

The easy part of this is a checklist meal. You know what I mean by checklist, a) Turkey 2) Stuffing etc etc etc

The hard part is to actually reflect on yourself over the past year. I would think that the Jewish equivalent to Thanksgiving would be Rosh Hashanah. However, we Gentiles simply have evolved (or devolved depending on your point of view) to the point of gorging ourselves on Turkey, pie and football.

Our families Thanksgiving celebration is nothing compared to what it used to be. My parents have recently passed away, and with that, the glue which held our clan together. My elder children are living on the Left coast, along with my grand its our family of four...and memories.

Can we get back our spiritual connection with Thanksgiving? Can we make room for our Creator?

I have a confession to make. Two years ago, we started attending a church, Calvary Chapel of Baltimore. This church is down to earth, and is not concerned in the least with building projects, luncheons or cruises to the Promised Land. In some regards its a boring church, however quite a few of us are damaged goods, and this church is all we can handle. I thank God for this church. 

I was challenged a couple of years ago, by our Assistant Pastor Josh Plantoff, to do a daily reading of the Bible. A methodical reading through the ENTIRE  Book.

So I started to do just that. I had to mix it up and not get bogged down with the Begot this or Begot I broke the Bibles 66 books into categories.


I listed each book and basically read 1 to 2 chapters each morning, before any news comes on or even the TV gets turned on. To be honest my morning coffee and Bible reading has become the most important part of my day. Not that I've become a Bible scholar, but I have become centered, and not so focused on the daily political offerings or the beating of the war drum.

So here we are, day before Thanksgiving. Im making a apple pie and brining the turkey...yeah,, and giving Thanks.

The Battle Lines Are Drawn

 November 22, 2016

The Battle Lines Are Drawn

Yesterday The Main Stream Media was meeting with President Elect Trump at Trump Tower. Dont think you will see this on NBC or CNN. The executives and reporters thought they were there to get an outline for future TV/Network coverage.

President-elect Donald Trump met with top reporters and anchors from mainstream media outlets at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly admonished them for their biased coverage during the presidential race.

The meeting was reportedly “off the record,” but a source told the New York Post that the scene was reminiscent of a “firing squad.”
The New York Post reports:
President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post.
“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source.
“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

This is totally different for the networks, as they have been part and parcel of the propaganda spewing from the Obama Administration and the recent Clinton campaign.

If you will recall that when Obama was first inaugurated, he hired a number of journalists. This set the tone for the next 8 years. The MSM has carried Obamas agenda without any critique.
The word 'propaganda'  comes to mind.

Next up on the media meeting list was the New York Times. That meeting was promptly changed and cancelled. I guess they had rather avoid the butt chewing they richly deserved.

Here's the thing. This is something that the MSM just doesn't get. Trump was voted in BECAUSE of the actions of the MSM. Everybody in American can see exactly what is going on...except the MSM.

Its a blindness, that is not uncommon. When Jesus walked among us, he taught truths. When He taught, he gave examples in Parables, stories designed to showcase what He was trying to get across. Those people who could understand, got it. He would also say something like, "Those who have ears to hear" meaning, sometimes a plain story gets overlooked or misunderstood.

I have a 10 year old son who loves video games. If he is in the midst of a game and I ask him to do something, like take out the garbage, he will nod and say OK....but immediately go back to the game and forget his mandate to take out the garbage.

The MSM is on the lookout for a boogeyman villain to blame for their candidates loss. Do you see the conflict here? The MSM should have NO candidate. They should be unbiased, they should be able to present without bigotry and prejudice the news. IF the MSM has a candidate, they will inherently be biased towards that person and against any challenger. 

The Wiki Leaks emails regarding the Clinton attacks on Bernie Sanders is a case in point.

So now the initial battle is underway. The battle for the minds and control of the American people. We as 'consumers' of news and media, need to be on our toes and not to be deceived or sidetracked by them.

The next battle is also forming up...that is the battle for our money.

A Legacy

November 21, 2016

A Legacy

The warm fuzzy talk over the past couple of months has been President Obama's Legacy.

To be sure, this means what will he be known throughout history as.

Will he be counted among the great men who led this nation through hard times like Depressions? or Wars? Or will he be scornfully remembered for scandal?

How will history view Obama? We do have a medical plan called Obama Care. Heck, even President Obama calls it Obama Care. Kind of strange if you ask me, as its true name is The Affordable Care Act.

Will Obama build a monumental library to himself, like other Presidents have done?

We can be sure that like the Clinton Clan, the Obama's will do all they can to influence and sway our thoughts and historical facts.

I ran across this image this morning, and am using it from Dinesh D'Souza and his film Obamas America.

This graph, and the resultant electorial win of Donald Trump clearly shows WHY the Republican won.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is telling.

This is a image of our financials, but what about our spiritual debt?

Has any president EVER tried as hard as Obama to force a religion on a nation? Obamas obeisance to Islam is undeniable. Wait, it is deniable according to the Liberal Main Stream Media. Who according to them, Obama is a good ole boy Christian.

Obama Says America is the #1 Muslim Countries of The World
Obama calls the US a large Muslim nation, Obama also said earlier that the US was not a Christian nation, though there is an 80% demographic that considers itself Christian. Now, after bowing down to the Muslim kind of Saudi Arabia, Obama claims the US Muslim population is one of the largest in the world making it a Muslim nation.

I dont know about you, but I am tired of these guys. So, lets close the Obama/Clinton door...for good.

What Do We Know?

November 20, 2016

The past week is just that, past.

We have had 10 days to revel in the hopes of the next 4 years. We are seeing the promises made during this bitter campaign being kept.

We have all heard the crying and lamenting from the Liberal Left. We have seen the MSM (Main Stream Media) promote stories comparing President Elect Donald Trump to Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot and yes Satan himself. 

The MSM is guilty beyond measure. If the Liberal Lefties wanted to look at someone to blame, look no further than the Media. The Media, said with all of their authority, over and over, that Hillary was going to win. Why would the LL (Liberal Left) not believe them?

For those of us who claim our God, we KNOW that this election is merely temporary. It is a beautiful sunny day between storms. Gods grace is so beautifully evident and so uncalled for that to claim otherwise is as blind as the LL and MSM.

Lets look at the evidence;

God told His Prophets to pass a message along to the nation Israel. That message was this; due to the nations rejection of God, and their disobedience, He was going to scatter the people around the world and remove the nation Israel from the land. Bad news for Israel, yet God gave them opportunity after opportunity to repent or turn back towards Him, they refused and God kept His promise.

Israel ceased to exist after approx 100 A.D. However, Gods second part of His promise was that He would re-gather His children Israel, after their punishment.

About 600 years before Jesus came, God showed a Prophet Ezekiel a message, a vision of the future. This vision showed God miraculously breathing life back to a wasted nation, a deserted land, and breathing life back to a lifeless people. Read Ezekiel 36 -38

For almost 2,000 years the message of God was given to the Gentiles. A Gentile is a non-Jew, and is not broken down into the classifications we like to use. If you aren't Jewish then you are a Gentile. The Gentiles were tasked to spread the Word of forgiveness and new life in Christ. However, we were told that our time, the time of the Gentiles, is temporary.

You see, God is not finished with the Jew, quite the opposite.

1948 saw Israel become a nation again. If anyone says there is no God, just point them to this one miraculous well prophesied fact, the nation of Israel.

God says in exquisite detail, HOW the world will look at the time of the end. Israel will be back into the land, He will draw Jews from all over the world back to Israel, He will restore their original language, He will make the desert bloom and prepare the land for this massive influx of people.

This is happening now, we are witnesses to Gods fulfilled promise.

We are also going to witness Gods judgment of the nations that have oppressed, harassed and harmed Israel. In Ezekiel ch 38, God details this future battle between Russia, Iran, Turkey and a few others versus Israel.

Ezekiel Ch 38 is the next big event. God says He will take them all out, and it will be evident it was Him and not Israel. Personally my heart is heavy for those millions and millions of peoples who are fighting against Almighty God and His chosen people Israel.

That hasn't changed from our recent elections. I think we all could have seen that event taking place any day. But thankfully, prayerfully, and mercifully is may be postponed for a brief heavenly minute. But make no mistake it will happen.

Please make your peace with God. He is not accepting any other peace offer than thru His Son Jesus. Jesus paid the price we all owe. All you have to do is accept it.

The Left Meltdown. Now They Claim Jesus Is Against Trump

Nov 19, 2016

10 years ago, our daughter Abigail had a problem. This problem was so dramatic, that it effected our families dynamic during certain times

I'll explain. My daughter, who pranced around everywhere she went, and was the total focus of attention. Abigail could not go anywhere unless she was dressed to the 9's. For the most part my wife and I loved how she was showing her independence in dress.

However there was a time where, we experienced a total meltdown. This happened whenever we played games. If we played Candyland, or card games or any other games...if Abby did not win, she came unhinged and completely unreasonable.

My wife and I have never witnessed anything like this. It became so bad that games ceased to exist in our family for the next 10 years. Now things have changed since she has gotten older and more mature.

I was thinking that this is the same phenomena as what the Liberal left is going thru with President Elect Trumps victory. The crying, chest beating, nonrational elaborations, and general depressions are what a 5 year old who didnt get her way experience.

This article proves my point;

The author is comparing President Trumps win as a horror to the millions of Christians who voted enthusiastically for Donald Trump.

This is typical of the liberal Left who view The Lord Jesus as a cosmic Santa Type who has nothing harsh to say to anyone and accepts everyone and everything as long as you are happy.

Its this sickening sweet saccharine false doctrine that where you'll stand for anything, except what The Lord Himself has said in His Word The Bible.

I challenge the Liberals who are now questioning everything to open the Bible and read for yourselves exactly what Jesus DID SAY. Find the verses where Jesus endorsed lawlessness, where He promoted abortion, where he encouraged drug use, welcomed and endorsed homosexuality and when all else failed, rioted.

I'll be interested in knowing what your Biblical stance is. I'll post this on Salon and give the author an opportunity to elaborate.

November Confusion

November 17, 2016

The November Elections in the USA is past. The fallout is epic.

What we saw last week was nothing short of Pearl Harbor/9/11 shock.  Since then the liberal left has expressed their anger and hate by rioting and pledging to disrupt everything the new President has won.

How did the news media miss this? The answer is simple. They set themselves up for failure. Look at the polls for example. When you have people in the cue to poll from, people that you have selected, then you are trying to reach a certain conclusion. Not the conclusion that will happen, but one that the pollsters WANT to happen.

This mistake is one of many.

The winners have one thing that the polls or "experts" downplay and ignore, that is prayer. Our pleading with our God, and the ability to act, has ignited our nation.

The road to normalcy is going to be a painful and long road. The liberal left, who's minds are what the Bible says is "reprobate", are mindlessly attacking anything and everything Conservatives and Christians stand for.

Jesus's words are no truer than they are right now;

Matthew 24:1-7

24 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Lets have a closer look at this. Jesus told His Disciples of the destruction of Temple and Jerusalem. This took place in AD70, exactly as He said it would.

Jesus is asked next, the logical question "When?"

Jesus's reply is nothing but curious. Notice He didnt say, 1985 or 1427 or a specific year, but He did give a clue to the end time picture. Jesus said "Take heed that no one deceives you?"

So the end time will have a characteristic of deception.

The end time will also have the characteristic of religious deception. 

The end time will have the characteristic of hearing about wars and rumors of wars, and the logical assumption is that there WILL be wars and rumors of wars. 

The end times will have the characteristic of nation rising against nation and kingdom against kingdom. The Greek word for nation is 'Ethnos', it is the root word for 'Ethnic'

The end times will have the characteristic of famine and of pestilences (disease) and earthquakes.

Is there any doubt that we are in the end times?

Will any politician 'save us' from this time and the reality we will soon experience? No, Gods judgment is sure and it is other words God has determined that anyone/and group/any nation that transgresses His Righteous law will be judged according to His perfect law.

I do believe that God can postpone judgment according to His will, and He also has provided a way for His creation to escape His judgment.

I cant speak for God and postponing of His judgment, but I can speak of His provision to ESCAPE judgment. In old times, God required a Blood Sacrifice to be paid to satisfy His judgment. This Blood Sacrifice wasn't meant to clean ones personal sin, but to cover it up. Kinda like sweeping dirt under the rug. It doesn't get rid of the dirt, just covers it up.

What is really needed it a Blood Sacrifice so powerful that it will CLEAN ONCE AND FOR ALL a persons sin. God provided such a His Son Jesus.

Jesus came to this Earth as a human, lived a human life WITHOUT sin, and was killed according to the Scriptures. This amazing Man, who is also God, rose again as death had no hold on Him. That means Jesus lives to this very day, and just as He foretold all that is coming on us, He also gave us (those who believe in Him) the promise that He will return, and will take us with him.

Its really not complicated. If you believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and can say with your mouth Jesus Is will be saved. That's a promise that will not be broken. Romans 10:9

I know we live in confusing times. Times of deception, war, disease, famine and natural disasters like earthquakes. If you want to experience TRUE PEACE, accept Gods provision for you. You will not regret it.
