God’s covenant with His church, and our mission in the earth as His disciples, before He comes to take us home…

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me,

to render to every man according to what he has done”

Rev 22:12

Jesus has said that “No man knows the day or hour of His return, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the father!” Mat 24:36

But He said also: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me. 2 There are many rooms in my Father’s house; I would not tell you this if it were not true. I am going there to prepare a place for you.3 After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me so that you may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-4

The Jewish wedding tradition is very relevant for us today, not only as it relates to the marriage covenant today, that is taken between a man and his wife (for better or for worst, richer or power, in sickness and in health, until death do us part), but also as it relates to our covenant with Jesus, and His coming back for His bride, the church.

The marriage union and covenant is something which God has both ordained and created; and it is intended also to be the model of the relationship that exists between Christ and His church.

Your marriage vows that are taken before the Lord, as a Christian, are sacred.

Here is an outline of how the Jewish wedding happened in the Jewish culture, in the time of Christ, and it is also relevant to us in our day, not only because it shows the sanctity of the marriage covenant, but it also speaks of our current condition in the Church, as the bride of Christ, as we are awaiting His return:

  • Kiddushin is derived from the word Kadosh, meaning holy! Once a bride and bridegroom enter into this initial phase of marriage they are considered married.  In other words, they would have to get a divorce, called a “get” to break of the engagement.  This period lasts from one to two years.

    The betrothal is a parallel to the engagement in most ways except that in the ancient Jewish custom, it was binding! It was so binding that it could not be broken without an orthodox divorce. You were considered bound together from the period you entered the betrothal contract until the wedding day.

    When Joseph discovered that his betrothed wife Mary was with child he had real grounds to obtain an orthodox divorce and would have if the angel had not appeared unto him and explained what was going on.  

    Even though the couple is engaged they do not have a physical relationship and they do not live together either.

  • The Arrangement: The groom’s father made and approved the choice of the bride. In traditional Jewish customs, marriages were arranged by their fathers.  It is quite often that the Bride and Groom have never seen one another before they are engaged.
  • In Judaism the Sabbath is seen as the bride.  In Biblical Christianity, the Church, the Body of Believers is the bride and the Messiah is the bridegroom. 
    The Father makes and approves the choice of a bride.

    John 6:44 “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
    2 Corinthians 11:2 – For I, Paul have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to the Messiah.
  • The Groom’s Promise: Tenaim – Conditions

    The Groom makes a covenant or contract promise. The Ketubah is a document that is used for the purpose of assuring a bride will be provided for.  Once this document was signed and witnessed by two people then it was binding and the couple was considered married.
    Drink the cup of wine to seal the covenant. Kiddush
    Groom pays a price to show he is serious; today the wedding ring is used for this purpose.
    Groom’s speech of promise to his bride is that he would come to claim her soon, this is the Engagement Promise.
  • The Covenant Relationship –

    God made a New Covenant with Israel and Judah to replace the one He made with Moses.

  • Yeshua drank cup of redemption at Passover. Yeshua paid the bride price of redemption for us on the cross.
    Jeremiah 31:31, Matthew 26:27-29, 1 Corinthians 6:20 John 14:2-3
  • The Groom goes to his father’s house and Prepares a Place for His Bride: Chuppah
  • Groom prepares a bridal chamber where they stay for seven days. He works on it until it pleases his father. Then he may go after his bride.  The Chuppah canopy is derived from this type of a bridal chamber.
  • Yeshua tells us that He does not know when He will come; only His Father knows. We must be alert and ready! For, He is preparing our place now. Be alert: Be ready: Do all He asks while you’re here. Develop an active prayer life. Offer yourself in ministry opportunity. Keep ourselves from doubt and failure.

    John 14:1-4 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

      (from http://www.yeshuatyisrael.com/messiah_wedding%201.htm)

God also has a calling on every Believer’s life; a plan and a purpose that will fulfill your God ordained destiny in life.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

In the world however, before we committed our lives to Christ, before we believed the Gospel’s message and accepted Jesus’ propitious sacrifice for our sins; and then made Him Lord over our lives; before that day when we were born-again, we each followed our own desires, our own inclinations, and ambitions without any thought as to what God’s will, God’s purpose, and what God’s plan was for our life.

This very attitude. which is common to every man, in a nut shell is what SIN is all about, our presumed independence from the will and purpose of God for our individual lives.

Sin is anything at all that goes crosswise against the original will and purpose of God; and Jesus let it be known that it begins in our attitude and in our thought life, even before any outward action is taken. The reason being that our thoughts are what give birth to our actions.

This condition is terminal to every human being, and that very SIN nature which we ALL have, that we have inherited from our father Adam is the very thing that disqualifies all of us from entering into heaven, and it is what has also estranged us from our Creator and God!

The ONLY cure for this disease, called SIN, which keeps us out of heaven is Jesus Christ!

Jesus said that He came that we might experience real life, and experience it more abundantly.

What better person to know what will really satisfy our lives, other than our Creator, the one who gave us our life to begin with!

The truth is we ALL, as members of this human race, in all the sons and daughters of Adam, are as fish out of water, without our connection and relationship with our Creator.

It is for that reason, for God’s pleasure, that we are created, to have communion and relationship with God throughout eternity.

The point of the Gospel and of Salvation through faith in Jesus is that our only opportunity to be reconciled back into God’s family, as per our Operations Manual’s (Book of Instructions Before Leaving Earth, called the BIBLE) is sometime between the time of our birth, and the time of our departure from this life, in death. This is the only time which we have to make our peace with God.

The Bible tells us that our spirits are eternal; and though our physical bodies all wear out and die eventually, our spirit man (which is made in the image and likeness of God, who is Himself a Spirit) lives on forever.

Where we will spend eternity after we depart this life will depend on whether or not we have accepted God’s remedy and cure for sin, and have received by faith God’s forgiveness and offer of reconciliation, which is offered ONLY through Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Bible says that it’s His will that every man and woman would come home and be reunited with Him, but He will not force His will on any man.

The decision is ours completely!

For those who have rejected the Gospel message throughout their lives here on the earth, or have ignored it because they considered it of little importance, for those people God will not force upon them in eternity what they have rejected all of their lives.

This decision is the MOST important decision any of us can make in our lifetime, and it should NEVER be put off; tomorrow is guaranteed to no man, and every beat of our heart and every breath that we take is only by God’s grace.

God is the one who has given us our life, but He leaves it to us to decide how we will choose to spend it; whether to spend it on Him and serve Him, or whether to just go along with the world , and eat, drink and be merry?

Life is a party… right?  Is it really?

That is the attitude of so many people today, and I’ve oven even heard the joke that they only want to spend eternity where most of their friends are going to be… well that will not be with God and that is your choice!

The choice is whether to serve God or to serve yourself, and the Bible says that most will choose the latter, and will reject God’s offer, how sad!

That means that most of the people you know and see everyday, among your neighbors, your family, and your friends,  the people you work with, most of these people are living their lives for themselves, and they could care less what God’s desire and plan is.

This is so very true for ALL off us, and that is we don’t know what we don’t know, until we are taught, until someone tells us. But how can that happen unless someone is sent?

Would you be that person?

Unless the unsaved change their minds and repent (meaning to change the way they think) sometimes between now and the day they pass from this life, then that decision to live separate from God will be set in stone for all eternity!

The only remedy for all of this, as I said before, is Jesus Christ!

Yes it is Jesus who has made all of this possible for you, because He, the Father, and the Holy Spirit love you.  

Jesus purchased our salvation by taking away the retribution owed to us, because of the sin in our lives, which is best described as the tendency which we all have to shine God on, taking our own rabbit trails in life, and doing whatever we damn well please in life!

Folks it is that very attitude that best describes what the sin nature is, and the reason it cannot be accepted in heaven is because it would bring the same disharmony and discord to heaven, that we see in the world today… and God will NOT allow that!

Our calling and mission as God’s children and His disciples (followers of Jesus) is that we are to be His occupational force and His foot soldiers in the earth; and the Bible says that we are also to be His ambassadors, and as such it is our mission to represent God’s interest in the earth, as it is in heaven.

We are also called Kings and Priest before God.

Kings and Priests
By Billy Joe Daugherty
 
And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, And has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.(Rev. 1:5-6 ) 

You are loved by Jesus. He washed you from your sins in His own blood. No man will be cleaner than one who has been washed in the blood of Jesus. Soap and water only clean the body. The blood of Jesus cleans your soul. Your old life with its past sins is cleansed.

Jesus has made us kings and priests in His kingdom. And the kingdom of God is in us. We have been given authority to use Jesus’ name to accomplish God’s will in the earth.

You are an heir and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ. (Rom. 8:15,16.) Royal blood flows in your veins. As a result, you are a partaker of God’s divine nature.

Furthermore, God has made you a priest. You are part of the kingdom of priests. As a priest, you are to go before God on behalf of men and go before men on behalf of God.

In the Old Testament, only certain men and women who were anointed as prophets, or prophetesses, and priests could contact God and hear from Him directly. However, in the New Covenant, every believer has received an anointing to serve as a priest. You do not need another person to go before God on your behalf. You can go directly to the Father through Jesus.

You are freed from all sin to live for God as His king and priest. Accept your office. Use your authority in prayer to bring God’s will to pass in the earth. As you minister unto God, He will equip you to share with others. Our DECLARATION OF FAITH: I am a king and a priest unto God. I have been washed in the blood of Jesus. I walk in the authority and in the anointing of God.

Shalom and Amen… have a blessed day,

The Prince of Darkness, aka the Devil, has an agenda… that some would dismiss by calling it a “conspiracy theory”…

The U.S.S. Titanic is about to be sunk on purpose!

News Flash:

Either way, a vote for Romney or Obama

is a vote for the Globalist “New World Order.”

Please understand that this Devil’s plan is being implemented by and through this de facto U.S. CORPORATION, through both political parties, and the plan is to have a “New World Order” rise from the ashes after our nation has an economic collapse and or any number of other man made or natural disasters. As happened in pre-Nazi Germany, the de facto President, who ever he is, will implement martial law and then there goes our U.S. Constitution and our Republic for good… if they have their way.

Oh how our nation has fallen from where we once stood as a Christian nation? Today most of our citizens and our leadership have lost that once important “Christian Compass,” and have instead adopted policies that can only be described as both antichrist and anti-biblical.

Do you remember the famous ABC radio news commentator Paul Harvey?

Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast over
1,200 radio stations nationwide.

When you listen to it, remember the commentary was broadcast 47 years
ago…. April 3, 1965. 
It’s short… less than 3 minutes.


Yes, it is true that the Prince of Darkness, aka the Devil, has an agenda; and yes it is also true that we are instructed in the Bible, by the Apostle Paul, to NOT be ignorant of his devices (2 Cor 2:11), meaning his mode of operations and strategies, which we can read and study all throughout the Bible.

What most people today call “Conspiracy theory,” is in fact nothing more than an effort by Satan to discredit the truth and to shield his agenda from public view, and make no mistake, as the “Father of Liars” he is the master of disguise and deception!

If it is not mentioned in the media as a problem, that same media which Satan controls today, then for most when they hear information from alternative sources, they generally dismiss these as only “Conspiracy Theories,: but what is a “Conspiracy Theory” anyway?

conspiracy theory

1. a theory that explains an event as being the result of a plot by a covert group or organization;

2. a belief that a particular unexplained event was caused by such a group, 
the idea that many important political events or economic and social trends 
are the products of secret plots that are largely unknown to the general public.

I’ve often wondered how this Antichrist figure could fool so many people and rise to power?

In this election year we are being told that whereas the candidate you would like to see on the ballot might not have made it (and that’s on purpose I might add) you have to nevertheless vote for one or the other of those candidates who have been selected for you, and some would call this voting for the “Lesser of two evils.”

Well as Alan Keyes pointed out, either way you are still being ruled by “Evil,” are you not?

This may seem crude in our modern times, but it’s nevertheless true, that to vote for the lesser of two evils is like saying your choice is to vote for either Beelzebub or Baal! Either way, you have elected Satan  as your master, because both work for him.

My point is, as a Christian, as the Apostle Paul says in the following scripture, that when we  come to Christ we renounce the darkness, we do not protect it as both President Bush senior and junior does, when it comes to questions about their occult experience in the Skull and Bones secret fraternal society  or in any other faith or belief that is in opposition to, or contradicts orthodox beliefs, as explained in the Bible.

2 Corinthians 4

 4  Therefore seeing we have this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we faint not:but we have renounced the hidden things of shame (darkness), not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish:in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.Seeing it is God, that said, Light shall shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Before I continue let me say also that whereas I respect every man and woman’s right to believe as they choose to believe, they have that right under our Constitution, nevertheless I also insist, for the purposes of this blog and to make my point, that we know what exactly it is that the Mormons believe and teach, because Mr. Romney cannot be Christian and believe these things, not according to the doctrines as outlined in the Holy Bible.

So we have Romney as one choice, who is a Mormon, and because he looks good and presents himself well on TV, many people and especially women, even christians, are supporting him. However you need to understand that because the Mormons have a completely different belief system, than what we read of in the Holy Bible, that they are a cult.

The Mormon god is definitely not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; rather they believe him to be once a man himself, who was elevated to the position of god.

Yeah that’s right, and if you don’t believe me just read on.

Jesus personally warned us that in the last days, just before His return to earth, that there would be many false Messiahs who would claim to be Him; and there are other scriptures that warn us of false religions (cults) who would presume to represent Jesus, who would also rise up in the last days, but that they are all impostors; and Jesus tells us to be forewarned of this fact that we not be deceived along with the rest of the world.

Mormons have completely redefined the Jesus of the Bible. They do not believe Jesus to be the Messiah (Anointed of God), neither do they believe that He is God incarnate (come in the flesh), nor is He the Savior of the world, not as orthodox Christians believe.

As is the case with all cults, as per Satan’s plan as the author of confusion, the things they would need to believe in order to be saved they deny.

To begin with, let us first define what are the basic fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, as held by every born-again Believer?

The Nicene Creed was adopted in the city of Nicaea in what is now Turkey, by the first ecumenical council, which met there in the year 325. It is considered by many today to be the summation of Christian orthodoxy and is the most widely accepted and used brief statements of the Christian Faith.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The video below will examine what the Mormon beliefs are, but just know, even though they may have good press these days and would like you to think they are Christian, I repeat according to their core doctrines and beliefs, they cannot be Christian at all!

One more thing, for those who think ones personal faith is unimportant and irrelevant for the purposes of righteous government, let us remember that the first item of importance regarding our founding documents as a Republic, as per our founding Fathers, is first the Holy Bible, then the Declaration of Independence, and our Bill of Rights.

The fact is, without the Bible being the foundation for all of our succeeding foundational documents, we would not even have a government, nor would we have any of those subsequent documents which every American should hold dear, and even more importantly, every American should also know what these founding documents say!

Let it be known that we are first and foremost, as per our founding fathers, that our nation was founded in the year 1776, as a Christian Nation, under God!

Even though Obama once made an unsupported statement that “We were no longer a Christian nation,” what exactly does it mean when we say we are a Christian nation?

 Contrary to what critics imply, a Christian nation is not one in    which all citizens are Christians, or the laws require everyone to adhere to Christian theology, or all leaders are Christians, or any other such superficial measurement. As Supreme Court Justice David Brewer (1837-1910) explained:

 In what sense can [America] be called a Christian nation? Not in the sense that Christianity is the established religion or that the people are in any manner compelled to support it. On the contrary, the Constitution specifically provides that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Neither is it Christian in the sense that all its citizens are either in fact or name Christians. On the contrary, all religions have free scope within our borders. Numbers of our people profess other religions, and many reject all. Nor is it Christian in the sense that a profession of Christianity is a condition of holding office or otherwise engaging in public service, or essential to recognition either politically or socially. In fact, the government as a legal organization is independent of all religions. Nevertheless, we constantly speak of this republic as a Christian nation – in fact, as the leading Christian nation of the world. 8

So, if being a Christian nation is not based on any of the above criterion, then what makes America a Christian nation?

According to Justice Brewer, America was “of all the nations in the world . . . most justly called a Christian nation” because Christianity “has so largely shaped and molded it.”

Note: to read the rest the rest of this article go to: http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=23909

It’s my opinion and also the opinion of most of our founding fathers (as per their writings) that if we are to remain a free country and a free people, then we are going to have to adhere to Christian morals, ethics, and doctrines, as written in the Bible; and for that to happen we are going to have to elect to office godly men and women, who will also reflect those same Christian ethics and values in our government, that is if we are to remain “One Nation Under God.”

Anyway, getting back to my point, what exactly do Mormons believe and why do we call them a cult?

Does anyone remember what the Apostle Paul said (see Gal 1:8) about if any man or ANGEL preach any other Gospel than the one that he (Paul) preached, let him be accursed of God?!?

On a side note, Mormans claim to have gotten their doctrine from an angel named Moroni… enough said.

What do these guys believe as far as our government is concerned and various other issues? What we find is that Romney is actually in agreement with Obama on many issues.

As we can see in the video both Romney and Obama are on record as being in full support of the Federal Reserve, who are the very people who are causing all the problems that we are experiencing in America today; and yes the de facto U.S. Corporation, including the office of President and the Congress, as well as the courts, all of which operate under this this same de facto (unlawful) Corporate system, not to mention the media, who are owned by them, the truth is all of these people, in terms of the leadership who control both political parties (Democrat and Republican) are on the same page when it comes to directing this nation towards a “New World Order,” and they both are also serving and taking their orders from this same group of Globalist International Bankers.

Please understand that these Globalist International Bankers are the very ones who both own and control the Federal Reserve Bank, which is a privately held corporation and is not at all a part of our Federal Government! Romney and Obama both support these people!

Then you have Obama’s so called faith, and to tell you the truth I don’t know what he is?

He claims to be a Christian, but acts like a Muslim. Anyway, Obama’s strings are being pulled by the same people, who would control Romney as well, should he be elected.

Speaking as a person who has himself been a Conservative registered Republican for most of my adult life, who voted for both Bush senior and junior, never did I realize that all the while this Antichrist spirit was and is fast at work, hidden in plain sight, deceiving most of the American people today via both the Republican and Democratic parties, and that these parties are now operating at full steam within my own country, in this election year, in what I now know is a de facto (unlawful, meaning unconstitutional) corporate entity,  which has governed this country since 1871, right to the the brink of our own economic, and moral demise.

We all have heard the definition of Insanity, as a person who continually does the same thing year after year and each time expects a different outcome. Well that has been the history of our country under this de facto Corporate system.

Ask yourself, who in their right mind would continue to elect to office the same group of people year after year, who are controlled by this same de facto system, regardless of which political party that’s in office, who are the very ones responsible for allowing this to happen to our nation?

What most Americans refuse to face is the truth that this de facto entity, called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC, is totally owned and controlled, as is our media, by a very small, but nevertheless very evil and very powerful group of people who I will call the Globalist International Bankers (aka, the Rothschild’s International Banking Cartel); and I’m sad to say that it seems it’s all too true that most Americans today have been drinking this de facto government issued Kool Aid for so long that they have swallowed Satan’s deception hook, line, and sinker!

This is unfortunate, because it means barring some unforeseen happenings or miracle of God (which I pray for daily), that the United States, and the world for that matter, as was the Titanic, is headed for some major cataclysmic problems in the not too distant future, all the result of this most evil, howbeit very successful, fraud (call it a conspiracy, agenda, or whatever) that has ever been perpetrated upon the American people!

Whether you vote for Romney or Obama, either choice, you are still voting for the continuation of this same fraud on this de facto Corporate merry-go-round that we’ve been on for the last 140 years, as both political parties are taking our nation to the same place.

Just like the Titanic was unknowingly headed towards its own destruction, our country regardless of who is at the helm (Republican or Democrat) both parties are on the same page when it comes to this evil Globalist Agenda of a “New World Order,’ and the leaders of both parties today have openly said so too… and the American people are non the wiser!

We’re acting like dumb sheep folks, just as Satan would have us to be, who are being led off a cliff; and it’s my prayer everyday that the American people wake up before its too late!

Didn’t Jesus instruct us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves?

Most sincerely and prayerfully yours,

Skip

Small business owner says NO to photo op with Vice President Joe Biden on issues of principle…

When the Secret Service walked into a small bakery in Radford , Virginia to ask the owner, Chris McMurray, if he would like a chance at priceless publicity by letting his tiny store, “Crumb and Get It”, be used as a photo op for Vice President Biden, heaven knows, Chris needed all the help he could get.

He and his wife had just started the small bakery only three months ago and were struggling desperately to make a go of it with a workload that often required the wife to work 24 hours straight.

To the agents’ astonishment, however, Chris respectfully but firmly said no.

As a devout Christian (who ends each sale with “God bless”), his religious beliefs were at odds with a President who’s flatly refused to step foot inside a church (save for photo ops and funerals) since gaining the Oval Office, has just endorsed gay marriage and won’t celebrate Christmas but will celebrate Ramadan, etc.

Chris was also at odds with that same President for telling small business owners throughout America – “you didn’t build that”.

As Chris explained, he and his wife did build their store and thus weren’t willing to let it be used for the Obama administration’s political purposes.

Result? Though the female anchor of the local news channel freaked out on the air by wondering aloud if Chris didn’t realize what trouble he might cause for himself by snubbing the Vice President, the reality had been the total opposite.

Chris has been swamped with business. As he told the reporter days later in amazement, the phone has been ringing nonstop with orders from all over the country for Chris and his wife to deliver cookies and cupcakes to homeless shelters, churches and nonprofit groups, etc. And get this, the first orders came from the very Secret Service agents who’d requested the store for the Biden photo op.

Not only were the agents not shocked by Chris’ refusal, they were so delighted that they ordered cookies and cupcakes for themselves on the spot.

So if you’re having a sweet tooth attack at the moment, why not give Chris and his wife a call and place an order? 

Crumb and Get it phone number is: (540) 838-2288

God bless you Chris… way to go!!!

Preserving our liberty… Why a vote for either Romney or Obama is a vote for the New World Order


Preserving Our Liberty

Unfortunately it looks like the Conservatives in America (Republicans) and the Liberals in America (Democrats) are given only two choices once again, both of which support the Globalists New World Order agenda, which means the further and ultimate erosion of Republic and our Constitution, which is already being virtually ignored by both parties in both the Congress and in the Obama administration.

Doesn’t anyone ask, or do they even care, why the playing field is always so narrow every election year?

Why don’t people like Ron Paul, who by the way has a very large following and did quite well in several of the primary elections, ever get to compete on a level playing field?

Don’t the American people see that this whole two-party system is a complete sham, and that the Globalist Bankers have both political parties in their pocket, as they do the propaganda mouthpiece for the de facto D.C. Corporation, which is the American media?

Folks, don’t you know that you’re being lied to again, and these same people have been playing the American people like a Stradivarius violin for more than 140 years now?

If we are ever going to save our country, preserve our liberty, restore our only de jure (lawful) Republic, and our Constitution as the highest law in the land again, as the Constitution itself states that it is, then we are going to have to take our country off this de facto merry-go-round that has been the cause of all the problems we are having today.

This two-party system, that is made up of both Democrats and Republicans is what got us into this mess, ever since this de facto system was started over 140 years ago, and do you really believe that after all these years a switch back to a Republican administration is going to change anything?

What did eight years of President George W. Bush do for our country, except further erode our Constitutional rights, with the Patriot Act, and give over 800 Billion of our hard earned tax money to bail out the Bankers, of which 40% of that money still remains unaccounted for?

Before you read further about how a vote for Romney is a vote for the New World Order, and I might add also a vote for Obama takes us to the very same place, please take a look at what Alan Keyes has to say about our voting for the lesser of two evils.

17 REASONS WHY A VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY IS A VOTE FOR THE NEW WORLD ORDER

Once again, the Republican Party is being tempted to vote for “the lesser of two evils”. A lot of Republicans are actually considering voting for Mitt Romney because they have bought the lie that he has “the best chance” of defeating Barack Obama in 2012.

But just because he is the Republican candidate that is most like Barack Obama does not mean that he has the best chance of defeating him. The truth is that no self-respecting Republican should ever vote for Mitt Romney. A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for the New World Order.

Romney comes from the financial establishment, he is being showered with money from the financial establishment and he supports all of the goals of the financial establishment. This year, millions upon millions of dollars are being funneled into Romney’s campaign and into pro-Romney organizations. The New World Order is literally trying to buy the 2012 election for their dream candidate. Romney would be the ultimate Wall Street puppet, and if you cast a vote for Mitt Romney you are playing right into the hands of the financial elite.

If you do not believe that a vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for the New World Order, just consider Mitt Romney’s positions on the issues….

#1 The Federal Reserve

To the financial elite, there is no more important financial institution in the United States than the Federal Reserve, and Mitt Romney is a huge supporter of the Federal Reserve.

During one Republican debate, Romney actually tried to explain to all of us why “we need to have a Fed”.

Not only that, Mitt Romney has stated that he is not really concerned about what is going on over at the Federal Reserve. Mitt Romney has publicly stated that he is “not going to take my effort and focus on the Federal Reserve”.

That kind of talk is music to the ears of the financial elite.

Also, Romney fully supported the reappointment of Ben Bernanke as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve despite his absolutely horrific track record.

#2 Money from The Bankers

Mitt Romney is getting far, far, far more money from Wall Street bankers than any other Republican candidate.

In a recent article entitled “The Big Wall Street Banks Are Already Trying To Buy The 2012 Election”, I detailed how numbers compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show that Mitt Romney is getting more money from the employees of the “too big to fail” Wall Street banks than all of the other Republican candidates combined.

The following is an excerpt from that article that shows how much money employees of those banks (and their spouses) gave to various candidates for president during the first 9 months of 2011….

Mitt Romney: $813,300
Barack Obama: $198,874
Tim Pawlenty: $101,515
Rick Perry: $58,900
Jon Huntsman: $28,250
Ron Paul: $13,104
Herman Cain: $2,715
Michelle Bachmann: $1,500
Newt Gingrich: $1,250

Even though Romney’s poll numbers have been in the mid to low 20s most of the time, employees of the big Wall Street banks gave him $813,300 during the first 9 months of 2011 and they only gave $105,719 to the rest of the Republican candidates that were still in the race at the end of the third quarter combined.

#3 The Wall Street Bailouts

During the last financial crisis, Mitt Romney was a very enthusiastic supporter of the Wall Street bailouts.

Back in 2009, Romney delivered a speech in which he made the following statement about bailing out Wall Street….

“I know we didn’t all agree on TARP. I believe that it was necessary to prevent a cascade of bank collapses. For free markets to work, there has to be a currency and a functioning financial system.”

During the Wall Street bailouts, gigantic mountains of money were transferred from the pockets of U.S. taxpayers into the hands of greedy Wall Street bankers.

Wall Street would definitely like to have someone in the White House who will bail them out once again when the next great financial crisis strikes.

#4 Health Care

Republicans are supposed to be against Obamacare, and yet millions upon millions of them plan to vote for someone that came up with the plan that Obamacare was based upon.

Barack Obama has admitted that much of his health care plan came directly from what Mitt Romney did up in Massachusetts. In fact, a recent MSNBC article brought to light some new information about the relationship between Romneycare and Obamacare….

Newly obtained White House records provide fresh details on how senior Obama administration officials used Mitt Romney’s landmark health-care law in Massachusetts as a model for the new federal law, including recruiting some of Romney’s own health care advisers and experts to help craft the act now derided by Republicans as “Obamacare.”

The records, gleaned from White House visitor logs reviewed by NBC News, show that senior White House officials had a dozen meetings in 2009 with three health-care advisers and experts who helped shape the health care reform law signed by Romney in 2006, when the Republican presidential candidate was governor of Massachusetts.

Conservatives all over the country have been loudly denouncing the individual health insurance mandate in Obamacare, but Mitt Romney has had the gall to claim that the individual health insurance mandate that he signed into law as governor of Massachusetts was based on “conservative principles”.

So how has Romneycare worked out for residents of Massachusetts?

Well, according to the Daily Caller, health care costs and health insurance premiums have gone up dramatically in Massachusetts….

Since the bill became law, the state’s total direct health-care spending has increased by a remarkable 52 percent. Medicaid spending has gone from less than $6 billion a year to more the $9 billion. Many consumers have seen double-digit percentage increases in their premiums.

That doesn’t sound good.

Romney now says that he wants to “repeal” Obamacare, but what he means by repeal may not be what you and I mean by repeal.

Someone should ask Romney what he meant when he stated that he wants “to eliminate some of the differences, repeal the bad, and keep the good” in Obamacare.

#5 Free Trade

One of the key goals of the New World Order is to create a one world economic system. That is why so many of our politicians continue to push “free trade” even though tens of thousands of U.S. businesses and millions of U.S. jobs have gone overseas.

Of course Mitt Romney is a huge advocate of the “free trade” agenda.

The following quote comes directly from the Romney campaign website….

Access to foreign markets is crucial to growing our economy. We must reassert American leadership in international negotiations, follow through on commitments we have already made, and push aggressively for advantageous new agreements.

But the results of this “free trade” agenda have been absolutely nightmarish for the United States. According to U.S. Representative Betty Sutton, America has lost an average of 15 manufacturing facilities a day over the last 10 years. During 2010 it got even worse. That year, an average of 23 manufacturing facilities a day shut down in the United States.

In all, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have permanently closed down since 2001.

Globalism is ripping our economy apart a little bit more every day, and if Romney is elected the globalist agenda will only accelerate.

#6 Taxes

The New World Order loves to extract taxes from the American people. It was not a coincidence that the Federal Reserve and the individual income tax came into existence at nearly the exact same time nearly 100 years ago.

During his time as governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney significantly raised taxes. The following is an excerpt from a CBS News article….

Mitt Romney’s Harvard MBA and gold-plated resume convinced many business leaders he would follow in the tradition of corporate-friendly Republicans when he was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002.

Within three years, some had a vastly different opinion, after Romney’s efforts raised the tax bill on businesses by $300 million

That same article also notes that Romney jacked up “fees and fines” on Massachusetts taxpayers substantially during his tenure as governor….

Romney and lawmakers also approved hundreds of millions in higher fees and fines during his four years in office.

Many in the Massachusetts business community were quite disgusted with Romney by the end of his term. Peter Nicholas, the chairman of Boston Science Corporation, says that “tax rates on many corporations almost doubled because of legislation supported by Romney.”

#7 Government Spending

The New World Order loves big government and big government spending.

And let there be no doubt – Mitt Romney is a big spender when it comes to government money.

Government spending in Massachusetts increased significantly under Mitt Romney. This was especially true for the last two budgets passed under Romney. In fiscal year 2006, government spending in Massachusetts increased by 7.6 percent. In fiscal year 2007, government spending in Massachusetts increased by a whopping 10.2 percent.

#8 Global Warming

It turns out that Mitt Romney is a believer in the theory of man-made global warming. In fact, Al Gore recently praised Mitt Romney on his blog. In a post entitled “Good for Mitt Romney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis”, Al Gore lavished the following praise on the former Massachusetts governor….

“While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party”

Not only that, it is also very important to remember that while Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts became the very first state to pass a law to regulate carbon emissions.

#9 Cap And Trade

If Mitt Romney becomes president, he is going to cram the radical green agenda right down our throats.

While campaigning for president in 2007, Mitt Romney said that he would fully support a global “cap and trade” carbon tax scheme as long as the entire world goes along with it….

“I support Cap-and-Trade on a global basis but not the USA going alone. I want to do it with other nations involved and on a global scale.”

#10 Illegal Immigration

Mitt Romney is very, very soft on illegal immigration. Back in 2007, Mitt Romney made the following statement….

“But my view is that those 12 million who’ve come here illegally should be given the opportunity to sign up to stay here”

Of course that will only encourage millions more to come here illegally, but Mitt Romney does not seem too concerned about that.

#11 Gun Control

One of the key goals of the New World Order is to disarm the American people, and Mitt Romney has been a huge supporter of gun control laws. When he was running for governor in Massachusetts, he made the following statement….

“We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts- I support them…I believe they help protect us, and provide for our safety.”

#12 Abortion

Mitt Romney has a long record of supporting the population control agenda of the global elite.

He claims that he is “pro-life” now, but Mitt Romney also once claimed that he was more “pro-choice” than Ted Kennedy.

Not only that, Romney once forced Christian hospitals and Massachusetts taxpayers to subsidize abortions in the state of Massachusetts. You can see evidence of this right here.

If he becomes president, Romney will be just like George W. Bush – a president that gives lip service to the pro-life crowd but that does next to nothing to actually stop abortion.

#13 The Pharmaceutical Industry

Just like the banking industry, the pharmaceutical industry is almost completely dominated by the New World Order. And the pharmaceutical industry has been absolutely showering money on Mitt Romney.

According to the CDC, the percentage of Americans that say that they have taken a prescription drug within the last 30 days has risen to almost 50 percent.

If Mitt Romney becomes president, it will be a new “golden age” for the pharmaceutical industry and that number will likely go even higher.

#14 The TSA

It recently came out that very elderly women are being strip-searched by TSA agents at U.S. airports, but Mitt Romney continues to fully support the TSA.

So if Romney becomes president we will continue to have to endure incredibly dehumanizing searches before we are allowed on to our flights.

#15 The Homeland Security Apparatus

Mitt Romney has stated repeatedly that he wants to make “homeland security” even stronger.

I have previously written about how Bush and Obama have turned America into a giant prison where virtually everything we do is watched, monitored, listened to, tracked and recorded in order to keep us all “safe”.

Well, Romney believes that all of this is necessary as part of the “war on terror”, and if Romney becomes president he will almost certainly push the envelope even farther.

#16 Guantanamo Bay

Mitt Romney has publicly stated that he would like to double the number of prisoners in Guantanamo Baby.

Just check out what Romney said during one Republican debate….

Now we’re going to — you said the person’s going to be in Guantanamo. I’m glad they’re at Guantanamo. I don’t want them on our soil. I want them on Guantanamo, where they don’t get the access to lawyers they get when they’re on our soil. I don’t want them in our prisons. I want them there.

Some people have said, we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is, we ought to double Guantanamo.

#17 NDAA

Barack Obama just signed a law which allows the U.S. military to arrest American citizens on U.S. soil, detain them indefinitely and ship them off to Guantanamo Bay for endless “interrogation” sessions. Mitt Romney has not taken a position against this horrible new law.

The truth is that if you look at the history of what he has done (not what he now says), Mitt Romney is virtually a clone of Barack Obama.

If the 2012 election is Romney vs. Obama, it really does not matter which one of them wins. Either one of them would do the bidding of the New World Order.

But millions of Republicans are being fooled. They don’t realize that Romney will say just about anything to get elected.

Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, once made the following statement about her husband….

“He can argue any side of a question. And sometimes you think he’s really believing his argument, but he’s not.”

So how do we know if he is telling the truth now?

The following is an epic video which demonstrates very clearly how dramatically Mitt Romney has flip-flopped over the years….

May The Great Spirit hold your hand in the palm of his hand

The Native Americans had some really great views on human life and the land we live off of. It is something that we should all take to heart and try to live in a similar way. Although we live a little differently now than when these ideas were first instilled we can make similar efforts.
