Signs in the Sun and the Moon With Perplexity and The Coming of the Son of Man

Have you noticed the perplexity of the world's problems today? The Lord Jesus Christ told us this would be one of the signs that would occur just before the coming of the Son of Man. Luke's Gospel records the words of the Lord.

"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring." Luke 21:25.

Perplexed means to be filled with uncertainty, full of difficulty. Puzzled. A problem or a situation difficult to resolve. Strong's Greek Dictionary describes perplexity as to have no way out, i.e., be at a loss (mentally):-- (stand in) doubt, be perplexed.

Most assuredly, this describes the condition of the entire world today. The American financial system is falling apart at the seams. There are calls for a one world global system by the UN chief , and when this happens, national sovereignty will be completely lost as all nations will fall in line, and even a call by Gordon Brown for a new global financial order. The dictator Chavez is even proclaming the route to salvation of the world is through socialism. I can almost hear the footsteps of the son of perdition arriving on the scene to solve all of the world's ills. The problems the world faces today are far too great and difficult for single governments to solve as governmental corruption and greed runs rampant. Record setting natural disasters on a worldwide basis are occurring at an alarming rate and magnitude.

In essence, what we are witnessing is a financial Armageddon, with Great Britain and the United States of America experiencing a financial meltdown that will have a domino effect all around the world. I don't believe in coincidences as nothing is a coincidence with God. It just so happens that Tony Blair and George W. Bush have been the two biggest pushers of a land for peace deal, dividing up God's chosen land and city of Jerusalem, Israel, and both nations are experiencing God's judgment because of their persistent push to divide the land of Israel. It's later than most think.

Christians need not fear all that we see happening on a global scale today, but now more than ever, we need to be in tune with the Holy Spirit and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and His Word, and watch and pray always that we may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Now is the time for us to be "salt" and "light" wherever the Lord has planted us in a dark, dark world lost and crumbling and sinking in its sin.

Jesus said: Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Friends, we are living in the generation that is seeing the fulfillment of all of the things Jesus spoke of in His Parable of the Fig Tree in Luke 21 and time is very, very short. We need to be about the Lord's business, winning souls, as nothing in this world really is more important and has such a high priority as this in the short time we have left here

The Trinity of Jesus Christ Denied-Jesus Is Not God Confusion

Friends, there is considerable disinformation floating around the Christian blogsphere that I have noticed and basically, it denies the divinity and trinity of the Lord Jesus Christ and says that Jesus is not God, and in this article I will attempt to clear up any confusion that this person seems to have set forth in his writing here. The writer does not use any scripture to verify the claims he sets forth regarding the denying of the trinity and divinity of Jesus Christ, so whenever we see this, we must set the record straight concerning false claims, either unwittingly or otherwise, that these claims do not go unchecked against the Holy Scriptures. The writer appears confused over this as he says:

"On Earth, Jesus became flesh and dwelt among us. He was the Messiah, the Annointed One, the Son of God, and the Son of Man. He was born a Virgin Birth, and died for our sins. He was the only one to ever live a sinless life. He became a mediator between man and God, because our sins are forgiven through his perfect human sacrifice (whereas, in the OT they had to sacrifice animals for forgiveness-we have Christ’s perfect sacrifice for eternity).

However, Jesus is not God exactly, because they are different. God can’t be created, yet it says Jesus was created (Both spiritually and in human form). Jesus is the light, the way, and the truth. Those who seek him (ie his teachings/sacrifice) will not perish, but find everlasting life. He was the light that shines to God. He knows how God wants us to live, and He showed us his perfect example in his life on Earth. He has authority over us, but that authority is given by God. So follow his way and we won’t perish.

He is not God exactly, but being God's unique son, is like God. Just like my son may be just like me, but not me exactly. He was filled with the spirit and will of God. But God is greater than Jesus. Even Jesus said this himself."

Let me say that Jesus and God are one in the same, and are not different as the writer implies; and God's Word does not say that Jesus was created as the writer infers. The Bible declares that God never changes and the Bible declares that Jesus Christ never changes.Written in Malachi 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."And written in Hebrews 13:8: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever.

"The Bible further declares that God created the universe and the earth by Himself in Isaiah 44:24: "I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself." and "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1;and that Jesus Christ created the universe and the earth in Hebrews 1:10. "And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands."

Clearly, the verse from Isaiah above and Hebrews here show that Jesus Christ and God are one in the same, as will the following verses from Scripture.Further, the Apostle Paul wrote in Colossians 1:16 "By him [Jesus] were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth....all things were created by him, and for him.John, written by the disciple whom Jesus loved, tells us who Jesus was and what He is more than any other:

"All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made." John 1:3John declares that both God and Jesus Christ are the Word:
"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."1:1
"the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." 1:14

The writer, in the linked to article says:
"I can't find anything clear that shows Jesus is to be called God, or is 100% God exactly. Instead, he is God's son, the Messiah, the annointed one, etc."


To this I say to you from the foregoing and following Scriptures of truth, the Bible clearly show the divinity, Trinity and that Jesus is God without a doubt, and to not believe this puts one in danger of still being in their sins:

"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

" Matthew 1:23Jesus said "I and my Father are one. John 10:30""For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, The Word, and the Holy Ghost; and THESE THREE ARE ONE" 1 John 5:7"

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians 3:5-8

And Thomas answered and said unto him [Jesus] "My Lord and MY GOD." John 20:28

"For unto us a Child Is Born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. The same was in the beginning WITH God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US. (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." John 1:1-4,14

The writer further mentions that

"Jesus was the firstborn of all creation. God created Jesus before anything else, and through Jesus all else was created by the commands of God. Jesus is the light (hence, notice in Genesis the first thing mentioned in creation is light)"

Neither Jesus nor God were created; they always were, as the beforementioned scriptures declare. While Colossians 1:15 tells us that Jesus was the firstborn of every creature, it also tells us that he is the IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD.

I am sure I could find several other scriptures that declare Jesus Christ is God, but suffice to say I believe the foregoing show without a doubt His absolute divinity, the Trinity and that He is God incarnate.

I certainly pray that I have helped to clear up some of the confusion this person has concerning the divinity of Jesus Christ, the Holy Trinity, and Jesus is God.

A Lesson From Jonah

One of my most favorite stories in all of the Bible is the story of Jonah which gives us a wonderful example of the mercy and compassion of God, and the need for all of us to examine our own hearts from time to time as the world grows darker and darker from sin and wickedness abounding in these last days. Looking around us today in a world full of wickedness and evil, I often hear Christians speaking of how can anyone possibly find God's mercy and show compassion toward some of the evil people we as Christians are called to show mercy to; in that respect, though, we become like Jonah when our hearts are to become more and more like Christ. As Jesus hung on the cross for our sins, he showed mercy and compassion toward those who crucified him and he prayed Father forgive them; for they know not what they do. Luke 33:34. It is so easy to forget that we ourselves are sinners, though forgiven, by God's grace, mercy and compassion toward us.

Lori from Persevere has written a short message on this very topic of Jonah's anger at God's mercy and compassion, which can speak to all of our hearts if we will allow it to. Or, the other choice is to become angry at God, which only takes one further away from becoming more like Christ, which is what we are called to do inspite of our own human desires and weakness.

Violence Against Christians in India Spreads While Mainstream Media Ignores It

Recently, I reported here of the brutal massacre of Christians in Orissa by Hindus and the urgent need to pray for our brothers and sisters in India; and now Word And Verse is reporting that this Hindus violence is spreading to other areas of India and muslims are now involved in the unprovoked attacks upon Christians while the media and nations of the world,as usual, turn a blind eye while Christians are being killed and their places of worship destroyed. It certainly does appear that this is a well thought out plan to eradicate Christians from India and Christians all over need to continue to lift up to our Lord Jesus Christ our Christian brothers and sisters in India.

  • Violence Against Christians In India Spreads To Second State
    By Isaiah September 18, 2008

    It’s “amazing” how mainstream media hasn’t managed to pick up on this development in India. I guess news about a group of people being persecuted and killed for their faith isn’t important. I’ve been keeping tabs on the developments in Orissa for awhile now and the fact that it has now spread to a second State in India (updated on Tuesday, 16 September 2008) is very worrying indeed.

Catholic Church Publishes New Indian Bible With Hindu References

H/T to Keep The Fire Burning

According to this Christian Post article from August of this year, the Catholic church is publishing, mixing and endorsing Hindu teachings from the Bhagavad Gita and incorporating them into a new Indian "Bible" called the New Community Bible which depicts Jesus, Mary and Joseph as poor Indian villagers, and passing it off as Christianity. Mary wears a simple sari and has a bindi on her forehead alongside Joseph in a turban and loincloth.
  • According to the 30 Indian biblical scholars who worked for more than 15 years on the new edition, the Bible draws on "the rich cultural and religious heritage of India."

Needless to say, this will present a complete distortion of the true Gospel message of Jesus Christ as written in the holy scriptures, and is condemned by Jesus Christ himself where it is writtten in Revelation Chapter 22 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book." 18.

Friends, we need to be as the Apostle Paul, "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love," and stay away from any and all teachings that divert from the absolute truth presented in the Word of God, the Bible and warn our Indian friends and others of this newest diversion tactic from the Catholic church that leads others away from the truth of God's Word.

We as Christians need to follow the instructions of the beloved Apostle Paul, be rooted and grounded in the Word of God, and "preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." II Timothy 4:2-4

Sarah Palin's Church in Alaska Helps Gay Sinners Overcome Homosexuality

Palin's Church in Alaska Believes that Jesus Christ Is God, Created the World and - GASP -- Helps Gay Sinners Overcome Homosexuality
The Christian basher Arianna Huff-and-Puff of the Huffington Post, calling Christians "brainwashed Christianists", is at it again, this time over Governor Sarah Palin's church's ministry for homosexuals which believes in the power of God and prayer and that homosexuals can be set free from the destructive and sinful lifestyle of homosexuality through the power of prayer.

Perhaps huff-and-puff Arianna could better put her writing talents [or lack of] to better use and write about the multitudes of homosexuals and lesbians in her narrow-minded, left-wing tabloid, who today are praising and thanking God through Jesus Christ for being set free from this sin, which God calls an abomination, through this very power that Governor Sarah Palin's church knows to be true. As it is written ~~

"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us" Romans 8:37

Ten “Christians” God Will Not Allow Into Heaven

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. I John 5:13

So you say you are a Christian and think you are on your way to heaven when you die or Christ returns, which ever comes first? You claim to know and love God and do all the right things. Even the demons believe there is a God and know who Jesus Christ is. Here's a little test to take as now is the time, before it is too late, to re-examine your heart with the Word of God.

Sarah Palin's Church Has 'Jews For Jesus' David Brickner As Speaker

Here's a most interesting article I found on The Jews For Jesus Blog written by David Brickner, who was at Governor Sarah Palin's church last month in Wasilla, Alaska preaching a message from Matthew 23: 37-39, titled, "The Jerusalem Dilemma," which made reference to sin and judgment, and the need for all people, both Jews or Gentiles, to repent and seek forgiveness through Y'shua.

In their usual fashion, it didn't take long, as you will soon see, for the left mainstream anti-Israel, anti Sarah Palin media to get ahold of this message, twist it's entire content and message and turn it into something that was not said at all. Here, from David's message, I quote:

  • "I pointed to the many conflicts and tragedies that we hear about daily on the news, as evidence that the whole world is suffering the effects of sin and stands under God's judgment; that we all need the grace and forgiveness of God found only in Christ. These are no more or less than basic tenets of the Christian faith. Then I spoke of God's great love for Israel and for the world, and shared the encouraging news of how many Israelis are now open to hearing about Jesus." Continues

Florida Women's Group to Boycott Oprah

OneNewsNow is reporting that a Florida women's group will be boycotting Oprah because Oprah refuses to have Governor Palin on her show. It looks like Obama is not doing too well in Florida these days, and it just may be that Oprah's refusal to have Governor Sarah Palin on her show may cause a huge backlash against Obama. From the St. Petersburg Times,
Florida may be falling from Obama's grasp

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on this and say it is no great loss that New Ager Oprah Winfrey refuses to have Christian Governor and VP nominee Sarah Palin on her show. Since it is quite apparent that New Age spirituality promoter Oprah Winfrey, who believes that there are many paths to God, and as this interview shows, Obama apparently agrees with Oprah, perhaps Oprah believes she has nothing in common with the extraordinary gifted and popular Governor Sarah Palin and perhaps Oprah feels threatened by Governor Palin's Christianity and popularity.
As far as Governor Palin is concerned, there are already millions upon millions of American women who love and identify with Sarah Palin, and she doesn't need Oprah Winfrey to promote her on her show. The Apostle Paul says it best, when he wrote to the Corinthians:

"Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, 'I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,' says the Lord. ' (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Deadly Hurricane Lashes Texas

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Galveston, Houston and all those who were affected by yet another natural disaster, called a category 5 hurricane by Jeff Masters of the Weather Underground because of its size.
Deadly Hurricane Lashes Texas

The storm's wide reach means it will pack an unusually strong punch, taking the form of a huge wave of water it is pushing ahead of it.

"This is a Category 5 hurricane," said The Weather Underground's Jeff Masters. "I don't care what the Category 2 rating says," he said. Category 5 storms are the most dangerous.

The storm surge could push as far inland as NASA's Johnson Space Center south of Houston, Mr. Masters said.
Ike could be the third-most damaging storm in U. S. history behind Hurricanes Katrina and Andrew in 1992, experts said.

America's Judeo-Christian Heritage

I don't watch The View, but from what I have read, John McCain did a superb job in setting leftie Whoopi Goldberg and her followers straight on the idea of separation of church and state, which by the way and inspite of what the revisionists have written, is not in the first amendment of the American Constitution. The founding settlers broke away from the church of England state run church and founded a new country known as America to practice their Judeo-Christian faith, which is the heritage of this once great country. Inspite of what the revisionists have written, American heritage is and always will be Judeo- Christian.

The founding father's faith was based upon their belief in the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, and not islam or muslim, or hindu, or new age, or buddha, or atheism and school children and young adults were taught morals based upon biblical teachings of morality. Some things never will change, no matter what, thank God.

The following is a perfect example of how atheist revisionists and socialists are pushing forward in their efforts to destroy America's Judeo-Christian heritage in favor of indoctrinating America's children over the last 40 years with atheism and communism. Inspite of the great strides the enemy has already made, this is one case that for the time being will not be thrown out by the judge inspite of the school's request to do so.

Rush Limbaugh to Obama: YOU ARE NO JESUS CHRIST!

A big thumbs up goes out to EIB talker Rush Limbaugh for setting the record straight once again to democrats and millions who listen to him on a regular basis, who have the distorted idea that their guy Obama can be compared to Jesus Christ. We as like minded Christians know that nothing can be further from the truth. No Christ loving individual would ever support infanticide as Obama or his followers do. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Matthew 7:16

From WorldNetDaily
***** Video included at link

In the wake of repeated comments from Democrats comparing Sen. Barack Obama to Jesus and Gov. Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate, radio host Rush Limbaugh today blasted the Democrats' strategy as "pathological" and "insane." "I know Jesus Christ. I pray to Jesus Christ all the time" said Limbaugh." I study what Jesus Christ did and said all the time, and let me tell you something, Barack Obama, you are no Jesus Christ."

He also attacked Obama's stances for abortion and sex education for children in kindergarten, saying, "I can't find any such references to Jesus promoting infanticide nor do I find any references to Jesus Christ suggesting sex education be taught to 4-and 5-year-olds, but I 'm still looking in the New Testament and I'll let you all know if I come up with anything."

Democrats, including party strategist Donna Brazile and Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., made nearly identical biblical comparisons of the characters in this presidential election, which Limbaugh traced back to a Sept. 4 posting on a Washington blog."Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus," Cohen said during a one-minute speech on the floor of the U.S. House yesterday. "Pontius Pilate was a governor."

Pilate was the Roman official who sentenced Jesus to death.Cohen was referring to comments Palin aimed at Obama during her acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota last week. Palin had made fun of Obama for citing his experience as a community organizer, saying, "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities."Addressing Brazile and Cohen today, Limbaugh said:

"Your guy [Obama] is no Messiah, your guy is no Jesus Christ. You gonna try to tell us next that Mary and Joseph were homeless all because Joseph forgot to guarantee ... the reservation at the inn? They show up homeless, get kicked out to the manger, Jesus is born, all of a sudden organizes 12 guys, says, "I'm gonna do miracles here but I can't do 'em for everybody. I'm gonna need health care. I'm gonna need government-sponsored health care, and I am going to promise to cut taxes on 95 percent of the people in Israel." Is that what we are next going to be told? This is just over the top. It is pathological. There is so much hatred coursing through these people's veins that it is impossible to understand and calculate."

Limbaugh also objected to recent complaints saying references to Obama as a community organizer was veiled racism toward Obama."How can there be a racial overtone when Obama is black? He's already.

John McCain's 9-11 Memorial Address Quotes From John's Gospel

"In the Gospel of John it is written, 'Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.' Such was their love; a love so sublime that only God's love surpasses it. I am in awe of it as much as I am in debt to it. May God bless their souls." More Here

It's been a shaky 24 hours along the Pacific "Ring of Fire," with major earthquakes in Japan and Indonesia prompting tsunami warnings and an earlier quake causing landslides in Chile.
The earthquake Thursday in northeastern Indonesia had a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 and struck 55 miles beneath the Molucca Sea, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
Magnitude 7.0 earthquake hits northern Japan
We are seeing more and more large earthquakes around the world on a regular basis which tells Christians, with all of the other signs that Jesus told us to watch for in Matthew 24, his return is very, very near, even though the skeptics still do not believe.

They didn't believe Noe either until he entered the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all, and it was too late.They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Luke 17:27

Orissa Christians: Attacks Will Glorify God, Bring More to Christ

As Christian persecution in Orissa increases and Christians are being brutally attacked and beaten, killed with their homes and church buildings being burned down, the Gospel of Christ is flourishing in Orissa as pastors see it as an opportunity to share in the sufferings of Christ.
Many of the pastors are saying, "even if they kill us, no problem. This will cause thousands to come to Christ." Story Here.

This is true biblical Christianity and what a strong message it sends as a testimony to our Lord Jesus Christ, especially to those in the West who haven't begun to have a taste of real biblical Christianity and persecution for our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in Orissa. " For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21
Another account of the Christian massacre:
India, Orissa's Christians Flee Genocidal Violence
by Staff September 9, 2008

INDIA, (christiansunite.com) -- Orissa State has continued to bleed and burn for the past eleven days. Thousands of innocent people have fallen prey to diabolic insanity.
Since independence (1947 Aug 15), this is the first time such a massacre has been let loose on Christians. "It is a national shame", said Mr Man Mohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India.
1. Thousands of Christians (the number could be 50,000) have fled to the thick forests for protection. They are managing without food, water, or shelter in the heavy monsoon. These forests are also home for wild animals like tigers, bears and elephants.
2. Hundreds of houses have been burnt after looting whatever could be looted.
3. No one knows exactly how many are dead.
4. Christians have been killed and their bodies been thrown into fire and evidence has been destroyed, the exact count is not known, over a hundred have died.
5. The State Government is hand in glove with the radicals and has not done anything to stop them.
6. The media is biased or hushed up. There are a lot of lies propagated.
7. Business establishments and shops were systematically destroyed.
8. Christians have been forced to bow before idols, and have been compelled to reconvert to Hinduism. Those who have refused to have been brutally attacked and killed.
9. Leaflets have been distributed urging Hindus to kill Christians. Their slogan is, "Become Hindu or else face death. India is for Hindus".
These are a few stories that have reached us:
* Mrs Kamalini Naik's husband was asked to become a Hindu otherwise the fanatics threatened to kill his mother. Seeing his mother under their grip, Mr Naik denounced his faith. Then they called his wife who was 7 months pregnant. She strongly stood for her faith in Christ & they immediately cut her and her 18th month old son in pieces in front of her husband and the other Christians.
* A Pastor was asked to become a Hindu, but he refused and declared his faith in Christ. His two hands were chopped off and he was given a second chance to deny his Lord. He refused right away and his two legs were cut off. His body was then thrown into the fire!

"There were those who, under torture, refused to give in and go free, preferring something better: resurrection. Others braved abuse and whips, and yes, chains and dungeons. We have stories of those who were stoned, sawed in two, murdered in cold blood, stories of vagrants wandering the earth in animal skins, homeless, friendless, powerless- the world didn't deserve them!- making their way as best they could on the cruel edges of the world"The Message, Heb.11:36-40.

Keep the government out of the Christian church's affairs is what the American founders proclaimed with the First Amendment of the American Constitution and this amendment still stands inspite of the athiest, anti-Biblical ACLU and anti-Biblical judges perverting the meaning of this most cherished amendment and stifling American pastors all across this great land, taking away their freedom of speech in their Christian places of worship. Things are about to change, according to this Washington Post article, and it's about time as American pastors are recruited by the Alliance Defense Fund to take a stand for their constitutional rights and against the unconstitutional laws made by anti-American, anti-American Constitution judges legislating from the bench, and not enforcing their First Amendment rights under the United States of America Constitution.

Separation of church and state is not in the American Constitution which our founders wrote, nor did our founders have a problem with bibles in schools. The nation's capitol is beautifully dressed with bible verses inscribed in its foundation.

"We trust, Sir, that God is on our side." "It is more important to know that we are on God's side." Abraham Lincoln

A Christian Response To American Election Uncertainty: Be Still And Know That I Am God

When anxieties build from within us during times of uncertainty such as is now with an American election process taking place , and an unqualified candidate with basically no executive leadership experience such as Obama and some would certainly say, unAmerican because the terrorist group Hamas from radical islam is rooting for him, and unChristian because of his muslim faith, and his mocking the Bible, and his membership ties with a hate filled racist "church" and a major war looming in the Middle East which will affect God's beloved Israel and America, we can take solace in knowing that as Christians we are neither democrat or republican, but citizens of heaven, occupying until He comes for us and called to spread the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord, and pray for God's Will to be done on earth in these very uncertain times that we are now living in.

As Christians we can sometimes get lost in the moment of the events happening around us, but we must remember to keep our eyes fixed upon and looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, that this too shall pass and that this world is not our home as Jesus made it perfectly clear when he was brought before Pilate that His kingdom was not of this world when he said

"if my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now is my kingdom not from hence." John 18:36.

As Christians in these very uncertain times, we can rest assurred, as the psalmist wrote and "be still, and know that I am God", and that He will be exalted among the nations in the earth. Psalm 46:10
Be Still by Hillsongs

Obama: My Muslim Faith

Obama admits he is a muslim by a slip of the tongue in this interview on video, which was immediately corrected by George Stephanopoulous and "covered over" during a conversation with George Stephanopoulous of ABC on "This Week". I strongly urge all who visit here to read "Everything You Need To Know About Obama" Muslim or whatever, I do have a problem with the lack of complete upfront openness and honesty on the part of Obama with the American people and Obama's particular brand of African Liberation Theology, first popularized by Nation of Islam,which goes far beyond any responsible Christian practice, or any responsible Muslim practice, and I do know that Obama supports socialism and infanticide and that he cannot be trusted; that is all I need to know to not vote for him.

Obama Video: A Baby Is A Punishment

In what can only be a desparate attempt to justify his anti-biblical abortion stand, in this video you will hear Obama promote the sick idea to his audience that a baby is a "punishment". This statement is a direct contradiction and assult to what is written in the Bible. Jeremiah 1:5 gives us a glimpse of the importance and significance of each life to God: "Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee" and Psalm 127:3 "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD; and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

These six things doth the LORD hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart the deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16

As an Illinois state senator, Obama opposed a bill to define as a "person" a fully born baby who survived an abortion.In 2001, three bills were proposed to help babies who survived induced labor abortions. One, like the federal Born Alive Infants bill, simply said a living "homo sapiens" wholly emerged from his mother should be treated as a "'person,' 'human being,' 'child' and 'individual.'" On all three bills, Obama voted "present," effectively the same as a "no." Defining "a pre-viable fetus" that survived an abortion as a "person" or "child," he argued, "would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute."In 2002, Obama voted "no" on the bill.

Rudy Giuliani Speech on You Tube Video from Republican National Convention

"We better get it right..."

This is a must see video of former Mayor of NYC Rudy Giuliani, known as "America's Mayor" with his comments regarding the truthful facts of Obama's lack of credentials to be President of the United States of America for those who missed the RNC. This is a must see video, as the stakes are extremely high in this November's election for President of the United States. The way I see it, God, in His mercy, is making the distinction between the right choice and the wrong one absolutely clear for the American people, as there are only two people in this election who represent life, and those two people are John McCain and Sarah Palin. The choice now is up to the American people to choose life.

"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live." Deuteronomy 30:19

Oprah Refuses To Have VP Candidate Sarah Palin on Her Show

Is New Age talk queen Oprah being bias toward Christian VP Nominee Sarah Palin?

Evidently, New Age talk queen Oprah Winfrey does not want to have the extraordinary popular and qualified Christian VP nominee Governor Sarah Palin on her show until after the campaign, even though Obama has been on the show. This not only shows bias and discrimination on the part of Oprah against Christian people, as well as racism, which is something that does not belong in the presidential election campaign, but it throws off a bad aroma again from the bias democrat media in general, of which Oprah has an influencial say.

Friends, we need to keep our Christian sister and candidate for VP Sarah Palin and John McCain, candidate for President in our prayers daily, as the "cards are stacked against them", because of the media lies, bias and hype, praying that the enemy's scheme will backfire, remembering that

"we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12
BIG DILEMMA: OPRAH BALKS AT HOSTING SARAH PALIN; STAFF DIVIDEDFri Sep 05 2008 08:55:46 ETOprah Winfrey may have introduced Democrat Barack Obama to the women of America -- but the talkshow queen is not rushing to embrace the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket!Oprah's staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

"Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on," an insider explains. "Oprah's website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama."One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!
More at Drudge link.

ABC News is also reporting on this, questioning Oprah's bias, and apparently there are some very upset and angry women because of this who have supported Oprah by watching her show.

As for me, let me say I do not watch Oprah nor do I purchase her magazine, but now just may the time for women who do to stop watching Oprah and/or purchasing her magazine.

The Democrat Left Media Smear Campaign of Governor Sarah Palin

Friends, the great political race has started and so has the mud slinging from the democrat left. As Christians, you and I have to ask ourselves how should we respond to all of this? The answer is very simple my friends. With truth. The darker it gets, the brighter the light of Christ shines through his people. Satan will do everything to discredit a Bible believing pro-life, pro-family Christian and it is our responsibility to know the candidates and what they stand for, their accomplishments, and the issues, and defend and vote for God's candidates as we will ultimately reap the bad fruit of what we have sown if we do not.

"Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings; he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding" Daniel 2: 20,21

The left, meaning the left mainstream newsmedia is once again showinig its true colors. Because John McCain has out maneuvered the left democrats in every way by his pick of Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, the left reactions to his outstanding choice has shown exactly how low they have lowered themselves; so much to make up smut in an attempt to smear Governor Sarah Palin, which shows their true hypocrisy; even pretending to act as if they have all of a sudden adopted family values reflected in their persistent but obnoxious attacks against Bristol Palin and her pregnancy, because they cannot really begin to light a candle when it comes to Governor Sarah Palin and her excellent credentials.

The truth is the left is so scared and jealous of Sarah Palin because of her outstanding political record and credentials in Alaska, they are shaking in their shoes. Where were MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NBC and the left mainstream media when Obama, two years into the Senate, with no real experience, announced his candidacy for president?

Sarah Palin is one of us, the people whom she was chosen by and elected to represent in Alaska and you can expect the same when she becomes Vice President of the United States of America. She does not have shyster lawyer experience or credentials as excess baggage in her background, something that is prevelant with the majority of the Congress of the United States of America and Obama and Biden. She represents the freedom our Christian forefathers addressed in the American Constitution and gave us over 200 years ago, and that is what the left is so afraid of. After all, it is the left of the democrat party and their media who are diligently at work to take this very freedom away from every American citizen. They have even brought out the big boys because they are so scared of the McCain/Palin Ticket (Tom Brokaw comes to mind here, )who himself is a one world order man and member of the CFR, who controls the media.

Governor Palin of Alaska has an outstanding record of experience and accomplishment in Alaska, one that Obama and the left cannot attack and a record of accomplishment and credentials that Obama and Biden could only hope to obtain; the only thing remaining for the democrats to do is to make up lies and engage in a smear campaign to distract from the real issue which is Governor Sarah Palin's true accomplishments vs Obama's. This, my friends, is all the left, which Obama and his media smear campaign represent, have to offer.

Let me emphasize that Governor Palin is the real deal. What you see and hear with her is what you get. She is a true Christian and the demons of hell have been let loose to attack her. So bring it on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC. The American people, the voters, are watching and the more lies and smut they spin, the worse they and Obama look and all the more the American people will vote for Sarah. Afterall, Sarah Palin is one of us.

Israel Sells Land To Moscow On The Shore of Dead Sea

Apparently, according to this news story, Israel has sold land to the Russians on the shores of the Dead Sea. Not only are the Russians moving into Syrian waters with their powerful Russian naval contingent with four nuclear missile submarines led by the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov carrying Russia's biggest missle cruiser to dock at the Syrian Port of Tartus, but according to the Israel National News story, the Russians are now moving into Israel on ten acres of land Moscow has purchased on the shore of the Dead Sea.

This is precisely the area where I reported here on August 27 that two Israeli oil companies suspect there is lots of oil and will be starting to drill. This should raise a big red flag to all Christians of the urgency of the times we are now living in as the alliance of middle eastern muslim nations is rapidly and vividly forming since the active Georgia-Russia war in early August, and it looks as if the hooks in Gog's jaws spoken of in Ezekiel 38 or Gog-MaGog War are being prepared to come take the spoil vs. 12,13.

Sarah Palin in Alaska Video Shows Israeli Flag in Her Office

For those of you who may be wondering if our next VP to be, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska is pro-Israel, I came across this video from February, '08 that shows an Israeli flag in the background [at around the 6:50 mark] in the governor's office and what looks to be an Israeli flag pin on Gov. Palin's collar. So, most definitely, Sarah Palin is a friend of Israel! The entire video is approximately 10 minutes long and worth watching as you get to know Sarah Palin.
