Does anyone remember something called the Posse Comitatus?
The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) that was passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1981.
Its intent was to limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel inside the borders of United States. It appears, as is the case with many laws in our country that restrict the powers of the Federal government, including our U.S. Constitution, that this law too is being ignored.
Many of you may have heard the reports that the Department of Homeland Security has been purchasing massive amounts of ammunition.
The Department of Homeland Security has redacted their most recent purchase order for ammunition. With DHS having purchased over one billion rounds of ammunition in just the last year. Many fear this is a sign the Federal Government is preparing for civil unrest. (an article by Paul Joseph Watson – Infowars.com)
I also have heard reports that Obama is now mandating that military officers at the higher levels in our arm forces are now being screened as to their willingness to have their troops fire on the American public. Now why would you suppose they would want to do that; and why is the pressure being ramped up now, in this post Sandy Hook era, to again do away with our Second Amendment Rights?
There is also a growing movement within our military, at all levels, that was started by our men and women in uniform who still respect and intend to keep their oath to preserve, protect and to defend our Constitution against ALL enemies foreign and domestic, to not go along with this program. Thank God for them and we need to keep them in our prayers.
It is extremely disconcerting to see this sort of thing, that has happened so many times before in history, now happening in my own country, by people that are supposedly elected to represent our interests, the interests of the American public, but who have an entirely different agenda!
By the way, there have been other sightings of massive Russian troops doing maneuvers under a UN flag, inside Federally controlled national parks too.
Add to that the knowledge that Obama, through Executive Orders which he himself has signed, has already given himself the power to declare Martial Law and to remove ALL of our Constitutional and civil rights and to insert himself as the potentate dictator of the United States.
From all of these reports it is becoming increasingly obvious that the stage is now being set by this defacto Corporate Government in DC, to pull the plug on all of our Constitutional liberties and to implement Martial Law; and apparently those FEMA concentration camps that we’ve been hearing about will be in use soon… if their plans are allowed to move forward.
Does it take a national emergency to actually happen, for the American people to finally wake up to what is going on?
Maybe it does, but I certainly hope not. I don’t want to see this happen in my country!
When you elect people to office who have no honor, who you can’t trust, this is what you get.
We desperately need to pray for our nation because we are finding ourselves today at a very serious crossroads and time in our history!
Our only true hope to turn our country around is in Jesus Christ, and may God bless the efforts that are already afoot to reestablish our Constitutional Republic and to bring our nation back to faith in God… anyway that is my prayer.
Been seeing black helicopters overhead? Uniformed troops with guns drawn? Armored vehicles cruising through your residential neighborhood?
Worry not; it’s just the U.S. military’s Special Operations Command doing “realistic urban training” for military maneuvers on site in cities across the United States because that’s what they need to be able to do, according to the military.
One of the reports that has come up in just the past few days came from Miami.
There, the Herald reported military helicopters were “buzzing” neighborhoods.
It was similar to April 2011, the report said, when military helicopters “buzzed through Brickell, leading to sleepless nights for some people and a lot of griping on social media about it.”
And KTRK in Houston reported the sound of gunfire and the helicopters overhead “created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.”
According to the station’s report, “With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.
“‘When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst,’ Jerrals said.”
The report said the Army “took over the old Carnegie Vanguard High School. … There were armed men in fatigues, plenty of weapons and what many though were real live rounds.”
The events have a history of causing alarm.
During a recent drill in Miami, “A photographer … captured video of a military helicopter firing its machine guns as it flew over an area freeway. The chopper was firing blanks, but an artist visiting the city didn’t know.”
“‘I heard the machine gun fire and then I hit the deck … I didn’t know what to expect, and it was one of the loudest things I’d ever heard,’ Josh Epperson said,” according to the report.
Army spokesman Michael Noggle told WND that the military considers the drills routine, and it’s the responsibility of local authorities who give the military permission to stage practice assaults to notify their residents.
“These are standard training exercises known [as] realistic urban training conducted by units from United States Special Operations Command,” he said.
He continued, “The purpose of the realistic urban training is to give our Special Operators an opportunity to hone their skills in a controlled, but unfamiliar, realistic urban environment that cannot be replicated with the bare-boned facades found on military installation ranges.”
He said the Special Operations teams want to train away from their home bases because they know the layout there, maybe too well to make training effective.
“Though we have excellent training areas on military installations, it is impossible to replicate what a real urban environment offers,” Noggle said. “It is important for our military members to train in a variety of different locations and unfamiliar environments to prepare for combat overseas. This city provides a great opportunity to capitalize on the unfamiliarity of a large, urban environment and has worked well so far, thanks in large part to the cooperation of the mayor’s office and local law enforcement.”
He said people really shouldn’t be alarmed, because the military works with local authorities, who are supposed to notify their own residents if they want to.
“There is a very detailed DOD realistic urban training approval process that USSOCOM complies before conducting any training outside of a military installation,” Noggle told WND. “Foremost is notifying (and gaining permission from) the local law enforcement as well as local government officials. It is left to the discretion of the local law enforcement and government officials to notify the general public of military training.”
But when that fails, and people are alarmed, he said, it’s not the military’s fault.
“I think it is important to note that these training exercises are in coordination with local law enforcement officials,” he said. “We work very hard to inform and protect the local population, our interface is through the local authorities. We were invited by the cities to conduct joint training exercises to enhance the effectiveness of both services in order to better protect the residents.
“The Army sincerely appreciates the cooperation that we receive from the local residents and businesses in the vicinity of theses training exercises; we regret that this caused concern and angst amongst some residents.”
A CBS outlet in Chicagoreported that a local “drill” also was being planned in a public school, this time by the local Gary Grove police department.
Cary Grove High School principal Jay Sargeant said the event would include “shooting blanks from a gun.”
That’s to condition teachers and students to the sound of gunfire, the report said.
The logic escaped some parents, the station said.
“If you need to run a drill, you run a drill,” parent Sharon Miller told WBBM. “They run fire drills all the time, but they don’t run up and down the hallway with a flamethrower.”
But writers at the Infowars.com site noted an alarming development.
“A decade ago, ‘black helicopters’ were fantasy according to the official account, and a favorite among conspiracy theorists. Today, it’s just an everyday occurrence, while the plans to ‘resettle’ the American people, or at least its dissidents, in concentration camps is officially on the books.”
“The public is being conditioned to give up its own defenses, in the way of 2nd Amendment infringements, all while being repeatedly trained to accept a constant police-military presence in its major cities…” the commentary said.
WND carried a report earlier when there were military “exercises” in Minneapolis. Records clerk Melissa Hill said, “To me it’s really frightening. Military copters flying around in our airspace in an urban setting – it kind of conditions people to accept a police state.”
Like this message from the late John Wayne, every now and again a voice comes along that just makes sense; that maybe says what a lot of us are thinking.
A patriot and friend, a highly decorated veteran, forwarded me this article this morning by Charlie Daniels, and I want to pass it along to you (see below), along with a few of my own comments.
Please note that in this blog I have saved the best for last, as I have included a special message at the very bottom of this blog, for some who might be interested in finding some definite answers, that will change their life.
Our nation today is in serious trouble and we need more voices like this speaking out across our land, not only in our country, but more importantly we need to be hearing these kind of voices in our government.
How far we have fallen as a nation from where we began?
To begin with, we are NOT a Democracy folks, not according to our founding documents we aren’t!
We are a Constitutional Republic that is supposed to be made up of the people, by the people, and for the people!
The Preamble to our Declaration of Independence reads like this:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, thatthey are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
The foundation that was laid by our Founding Fathers can be found in our founding documents. We were formed as a Constitutional Republic, with the signing of our organic U.S. Constitution (in 1789) and our Bill of Rights! (note that in law the term “organic” means the fundamental founding political principles of a government)
This document, our U.S. Constitution, is the HIGHEST law of our land, however it has been and is today virtually ignored by the very people in Washington D.C, people we have elected to office, each of whom has sworn an oath to preserve, to protect, and to defend our U.S. Constitution.
Instead they have been doing their very best, even working overtime, to strip us of more of our Rights each and every year; and are in fact shredding our U.S. Constitution as I write. These efforts are today being ramped up, and that is particularly true in the last several years, especially since 9/11!
Two glaring examples of how this is happening can be found in the passage of the “Patriot Act” by former President George W. Bush, and the “National Defense Authorization Act” (NDAA), that was signed into law by the current President.
Please note that one is a Conservative Republican and the other, President Obama, is an Ultra Liberal Democrat, yet on this one issue of denying us our Conditional Rights, they are both operating as one, and are on the same page.
Our Two-Party political system works much the same way that Professional Wrestling does, where the outcome and the players are pre-picked and the outcome is predetermined, so that the true Puppet Masters, the International Bankers who control the purse strings, are able to maintain control and influence from behind the scenes in order to obtain their objectives and their goals, at our expense.
This has been going on now for over 140 years!
Let’s start by looking at the Patriot Act.
Just six weeks after the September 11 attacks that brought down the World Trade Center Towers, a panicked Congress passed the “USA/Patriot Act,” an overnight revision of the nation’s surveillance laws that radically expanded the government’s authority to spy on its own citizens, while simultaneously reducing checks and balances on those powers like judicial oversight, public accountability, and the ability to challenge government searches in court.
Most of the changes to surveillance law that were made by the Patriot Act were part of a longstanding law enforcement wish list that had previously been rejected by Congress, and in some cases repeatedly so.
Congress however after 9/11 reversed its stance, because it was pressured into doing so by the Bush Administration, and this happened in mere weeks after the September 11 attack.
How convenient and this is what we are losing by the passage of these two unconstitutional laws.
Our Bill of Rights include the following:
The First Amendment states that citizens are not to be prohibited by the government in freely expressing their ideas and have a right to a free practice of religion.
The Third Amendment gives protection to citizens in their home and doesn’t allow the government to prohibit something that might be done in the privacy of their own home.
The Fourth Amendment protects individuals “in their persons,” homes, documents and etc against unreasonable searches and seizures, without the issuance of a warrant and probable cause.
The Fifth Amendment gives citizens the right to privacy by not forcing them to possibly incriminate themselves.
Both the Patriot Act and NDAA have compromised much of these rights, which without a Constitutional Amendment to change our U.S. Constitution is itself against the law.
In a nutshell, the Patriot Act now allows the government to have unconstitutional and unreasonable search and seizure rights over your personal property, without due process and without probable cause.
The National Defense Authorization Act now allows individual citizens to be detained indefinitely, again without probable cause and due process; meaning there doesn’t have to be any charges, no trial, and they can virtually put you in jail now and throw away the key!
Do you really trust this de facto corporation to have that kind of power over your life?
Well the fact is, with legislation being passed like these two bill, which is happening more and more, we are today on the verge of losing all of our rights.
All that it would take would be for some national crisis and/or emergency that would allow this de facto Administration to declare Martial Law, and just like what happen in pre-Nazi Germany, they would then take away all of our rights and liberties, and that is all that it would take for this to happen.
What do you suppose would happen, in the inner cities all across America, if things got so bad that there were food shortages?
There would be riots like you wouldn’t believe all across America, primarily in the inner cities; and that is all it would take for this to happen.
Like I said, that same thing once happened in pre-Nazi Germany back in 30’s and we all know how that turned out.
Well that same playbook is today being used once again here in our country; and if we aren’t careful it will have the same results here that happen in Hitler’s Germany, unless the America people wake up!
Here’s the history behind why the “District of Columbia” was formed:
The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in session. I refer you to the “Acts of the Forty-First Congress,” Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62.
On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act titled: “An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia.”
This is also known as the “Act of 1871.” What does this mean?
Well, it means that Congress, under no constitutional authority to do so, created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, which is a ten mile square parcel of land.
…In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original “organic” version of the Constitution into a dusty corner.
With the “Act of 1871,” our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word “for” was changed to the word “of” in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:
“The Constitution for the united states of America“.
The altered version reads: “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”. It is the corporate constitution. It is NOT the same document you might think it is.
The corporate constitution operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it is the same parchment that governs the Republic. It absolutely is not.
The fact is subsequent to the passage of this legislation, the leadership of this present de facto D.C. Corporation, including Presidents, Congressmen and Senators (ever since 1871) have only referred to us as a “Democracy?” And so why is that?
By the way, this entity known as the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC is duly registered as a Delaware Corporation, File No. 2193946. (Look it up for yourself).
We are never called a Republic anymore and the reason we aren’t is because under this de facto D.C. Corporation, both our Republic and our organic U.S. Constitution have been placed in moth balls, ever since 1871!
If we are to survive then we have to get back to our founding roots as a nation again; which means we have to re inhabit our only de jure (lawful) Constitutional Republic!
If we don’t then just like every other Democracy in history we are going to lose our nation and our liberty because of the indifference and apathy of the people.
Have you ever heard of the Cycle of Democracy, which was written by Alexander Fraser Tyler (aka Lord Woodhouselee) back in 1770?
He was a Scottish advocate, judge, writer and historian who served as Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities, in the University of Edinburgh.
He wrote the following:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess (gifts) from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to apathy;
from apathy to dependence;
from dependency back again into bondage.”
Does that not sound like where we are today as a nation?
Are we not somewhere between apathy and dependence?
Well according to history the next step is “bondage!”
Why is it the word “Democracy” is NOT found anywhere in our founding documents?
As you just saw in the above video, there was a very good reason why our Founding Fathers didn’t want us to be a democracy, because after reviewing the history of all the great civilizations of the world that preceded us, they found that every democracy in history has always ended up controlled by an oligarchy; and wouldn’t you know it, that is exactly the situation that we find ourselves in today, under this de facto corporate entity called UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.
Every corporation is controlled by a Board of Directors who have to answer to the owners of the corporation, who are the “Stockholders.”
Question is, who are the Board of Directors and the Stockholders over this UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION?
I can tell you this, it most definitely is NOT the American people!
The oligarchy that is at the top of this corporate pyramid that we find in Washington D.C., who make up the Board of Directors and the Stockholders, are in fact the Globalist Bankers, who are headed up by the Rothschild’s International Banking Cartel; who also own and control another privately held and controlled entity, called the Federal Reserve (which like Federal Express is Federal in name only), and also there is their collection agency, called the IRS.
It was in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act was surreptitiously signed into law over the Christmas holidays, when only a handful of select Congressmen were on hand to sign it into law, which is much the same as business is done today in Washington D.C., where things are done under the table and out of the sight of the American public.
For the last 141 years this elitist group of people, these Globalist Bankers, have used their immense wealth and power to corrupt our two-party political system, most of our politicians (meaning the political leadership of both the Republican and Democratic parties), our major public broadcasters, and most of our print media, not to mention our public education systems across our country.
If you want to know what’s wrong with our country today… then this is it!
Folks we need to wake up, because we didn’t just get in this mess that we are in today over night!
We as a people have been manipulated, conditioned and programmed for the last 141 years to think of our government as a pyramid, which is the way all corporations operate, where the power and authority flows from the top (the Federal Government) down to the bottom, which are the employees, or in this case it’s We the People.
That is the exact opposite from the way our de jure government was originally formed!
That “top – down” form of government was what our Founding Fathers were running away from… and you won’t find it anywhere in our Constitution!
Under our de jure Constitutional Republic, that was formed back in 1789 with the signing of our Constitution, this Federal Government is to operate under a contract with “We the People,” and that contract is our U.S. Constitution… wherein it is specified that all of its powers (in the Federal Government) are derived only from “We the People,” whose powers are limited and spelled out in the Constitution.
This de facto corporation, this Federal Government today, has presumed to itself far more power than is allowed by our Constitution, until they are today trying to virtually control every single aspect of our life!
This will not long be a free society if that behavior is allowed to continue unchecked!
The people we send to represent us at the Federal level are NOT sent there to be our leaders, rather they are (under our Constitution) elected to be our representatives; and are sent ONLY to represent our interests, for the good of our nation, and for all future generations.
Today our government, under this corrupt de facto system, which is so obvious with the resent $700 – 800 Billion bailout that was passed by Congress (in 2008), that was money spent not to bail us out or to help the American people, but rather it was spent to bail out the large mega corporate and banking interests whose malfeasance caused the 2008 melt down; and by the way over 40% of that money is today still unaccounted for; and why is it that nobody is being prosecuted?
This system, this whole corporate entity, is as corrupt as the day is long, from the top down; and these very people who caused the mess that we are in today are the ones that are being looked to to get us out. It is truly the blind leading the blind!
These are the very same people who are responsible for our faltering and failing economy and for the downward spiral of not only our economy, but also our nation, and our moral condition as well; and yet we are expecting these very same people to correct the mess that they have caused? I think not!
This is what these private corporate bankers have done to our money; it is also indicative of what they have done to our country as well for the last 100 years.
If America is to be saved then “We the People” had better wake up and soon.
The road home has to start on our knees because we have long ago violated the sacred covenant that our Founding Fathers made with God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!
There have been only two nations in history whose government has been founded based upon a Covenant with God… the first was the nation of Israel and the second was the Republic for the united states of America, which was formed officially in 1789.
So what I recommend is that we start by looking to what God has said to do at times like this, as it is written in His Word (the Holy Bible).
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, God says that “If my people, who are called by My name, would humble themselves and pray; turn from their wicked ways and seek My face; then I (God) will hear their prayers and I will heal their land.“
Folks, the history of our nation (our true history which has been removed from our history books) is that our nations was founded by men and women of faith, with God’s help and with His direction; and if we are to last very much beyond where we have deteriorated to today then it is “WE THE PEOPLE” who have to change the direction of this country.
For that to happen, both collectively as a nation and as individuals, we are going to have to get back to that same faith that once made our nation great!
I recommend that if you are concerned and if you want to see this happen again in our nation, that you first implement 2 Chronicles 7:14 for yourself and for your family.
We disparately need a miracle from God and we need it quick because I believe our window of opportunity for us to turn our nation around is getting quite narrow and we don’t have very much time left.
The agenda of the oligarchy that is at the top of this corporate pyramid in America is ultimately to collapse our economy and place our nation in default, in order to force us into a totalitarian One World Government and monetary system (a “New World Order“) and that is the reason why they have changed our U.S. Currency from being gold and silver backed, into a fiat currency which is not even worth the paper it is printed on; in fact it’s not even money at all, and that is why it is called “Federal Reserve Notes,” because they are certificates of debt!
Thanks to these people our U.S. Dollar is no longer backed by any gold or silver reserve, as it once was, but rather today it is backed by our over $16 Trillion of debt!
What does the Bible say about the borrowers becoming the slaves of the lenders?
This de facto U.S. Corporation and the bankers who control it have taken America from being the chief creditor nation in the world, to being the chief debtor nation and all of this is happening for one reason, and that is once again, to cause the American people, along with the rest of the world, to ultimately accept this Globalist agenda of a “New World Order!”
That would never happen with a strong American economy, a strong U.S. Dollar, and a strong national sovereignty, so the powers that be who control our nation’s policies and our politics, have placed their men and women in positions of power in our country to both undermine our economy and our sovereignty; and that is exactly what we see happening today in Washington D.C.
The fact is the failings of these people are owed to the same failings of ALL mankind, who have lost their way and have been estranged and separated from their Source, from their Creator and God; and the Bible tells us exactly where that problem lies.
The Bible tells us that it is the Love of money that is the root of all evil; and it says also that we cannot love both God and worldly Mammon, for we will cling to one and shun the other.
It also says in 1 John 2:15-16:
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
When you boil it all down, our root problem in America today is that too many have fallen victim to these tendencies, that are all too human.
Too many of our people, our politicians, and leaders of industry have long ago lost touch with the God of the Bible and His laws and requirements, and the basic knowledge of knowing the difference between Right and Wrong.
For far too many of these people today, who now hold the reins of power in their hands, the end does justify the means, no matter how many people (these “Useless Eaters” as they are called by the Globalist elite).
As it is these people already feel that we who are not a party to their corruption and their plan for world dominance, that there are already too many people in the world and the feeling is that we are using up too much of “their resources!” Imagine that?
So consequently it doesn’t matter how many of these people, these “Useless Eaters” have to suffer and even die in order to make their goals happen.
This view is totally myopic and self centered, and it is TOTALLY evil!
However this is in fact the prevailing mindset of these Global Elitists that would allow these things to happen; and also it is a prime example of what life will be like ultimately under this “New World Order,” and this coming Antichrist kingdom.
This is what Jesus said was coming, that would be the absolute worse time this world has ever know, or ever will know.
Well in my Bible it says when our Lord does come back there will be both sheep nations, who have remain loyal to Him, and there will be goat nations who haven’t.
It is my prayer and purpose and I know it is also the prayer and purpose of many of you, who are reading this, that our nation will be in that first group, among the sheep nations.
However that being as it is, we still are each ultimately accountable to God for the things that we do in our life, and hopefully, at least it is my prayer that a Spiritual Awakening in our nation and a Revival will bring our focus back to center once again… back to Jesus!
That is my prayer anyway; and I would like to see, as I know God would also, that all of these people would repent (meaning change the way they think) and come back home.
I know that won’t happen, but just maybe there will be at least a few who will see the light? I hope so anyway.
If you do not want to see our nation stolen from us, and if you do not want to see more of our Constitutional Liberties and Rights striped from us, and from our children, and see a time when all future generations are enslaved to these people, then I recommend that you stand up and be counted.
Join the rest of us who (as of 2010) have already re-inhabited our only de jure (lawful) Constitutional Republic for the united states of America.

Encouragement In A Time Of Grave Fear
By Charlie Daniels
January 29, 2013
If you read this column very often you know the frustration and disgust I feel for our government, their profligate spending, their all consuming passion for self-preservation, and the inevitable fall at the end of the ruinous path they seem so determined to force this nation down.
You know I’m deeply concerned about the rapid erosion of personal liberty and our president’s cavalier attitude toward the Constitution and consolidation of power into a monolithic central, federal government, a bureaucratic nightmare that makes and enforces the rules, controlling even the administration of health care and the curriculum our children will study in school.
I fear the rampant apathy and lackadaisical work ethic of the entitlement society will become so deeply ingrained in the coming generations that the nanny state policies of this president and others like him who are likely to be elected will gradually drain the wealth and the will of the population until the well is bone dry and the confusion and anger of those who are suddenly left to fend for themselves will overrun the streets of this nation resulting in chaos and bloodshed.
I fear that this nation and this planet are in the midst of a great apostasy, or falling away from belief and faith in God as cults, false prophets and faddish feel-good religions pop up and capture the attention of many.
Even some of the old-line Christian denominations have tried to modernize their doctrine, bending the curve to accept things that are forbidden in the Bible, conveniently ignoring or subverting scriptures that fly in the face of the new age dogma they now embrace.
Anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world and while Islamic fanatics scream about the destruction of the State of Israel, the dominos in the Middle East fall one by one, with only the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan preventing the fulfillment of the ancient biblical prophecy that Jerusalem would be surrounded by armies.
Yes, I am very concerned about Israel. It is not the land of my birth, but when I became a Christian I was grafted into the root of Israel like a wild olive branch grafted on to a full-grown tree. The Bible says that salvation comes to the world through the Jews, the race of people by which the Creator of all mankind chose to reveal Himself to the world, the race into which my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born, the land where He would live and die on a cross for our sins.
How could any true Christian not be concerned?
Street gangs, flash mobs, drug cartels, incurable diseases, wholesale abortion the tearing down of traditional marriage and nuclear families, child molestation, the belittling of American exceptionalism, the export of manufacturing and jobs, murder, rape, home invasions, it’s enough to give a person a nervous breakdown, but then I have to stop and think.
This world is just a short stop, only a testing ground on my eternal journey.
Any earthly leader or government, no matter how pervasive and powerful are only temporary place holders who will eventually pass into oblivion and be reduced to dust.
Israel will be battered and bloody but will never be completely destroyed and 85% of the vast armies allied against her in the final battle will be annihilated in the Jezreel Valley near Megiddo, known as Armageddon.
This earth with all its awesome military might, pompous politicians, mega-rich magnates and all the evil the powers of darkness can bring to bear are no more than a grain of sand compared to the indescribable power of the One who created the planets and flung them out across endless space, He who can part the sea and make the sun stand still.
Only One is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent, He is everywhere, He knows everything and He can do anything. And yet in all His Majestic might, he cares for you to the point that He knows the number of hairs on your head.
His name is God, Jehovah, Yahweh, Dios to Spanish speakers, Gott to the Germans and so on, but He does have, always has had and always will have the last word and be the final judge in the affairs of mankind.
He will write the final pages of history.
We will all stand before Him and give account for our lives, every king, every president, every dictator, every super star, every human being.
Lord, please help me to keep my confidence in You and my mind on eternal things to come. Amen.
it all starts with our correctly discerning God’s Word!

There is a great deception a foot through the media today in America, that has actually been going on for years.
The powers that be that pull the strings of both our mainstream media and this Washington D.C. Corporation, called UNITED STATES, INC has successfully, over the years, pitted the Right against the Left, in order to keep our house divided, and to draw attention away from themselves.
The objective is to keep the American people preoccupied and arguing among themselves, solely over their political differences, so as to keep the attention off of what the “Puppet Masters” are doing behind the scenes, to weaken our country in the hope that we will eventually willingly submit to their “New World Order.”
As I’ve said before this same strategy comes right out of the same playbook that was used in Leninist and Stalinist Russia, and continues today under the Communist Party; it was used in pre-Nazi Germany, that gave rise to Hitler; and also in Red China.
It’s the old “Good Cop, Bad Cop” scenario, that operates much the same as our Two-Party political system does, where both sides appear to be against each other (on the surface that is), where both sides are pitted against the center, in order to achieve a common goal and objective.
It’s all about deceit and the massive programming of the general population, through the media and our public education, when in actuality both sides are working for and are taking their orders form the same people.
What people you ask?
Well at the top of the list are a small group of families, headed up by the Rothschild’s International Banking Cartel that today control most all of the world banking systems.
They have also over the years have set up and have supported a host of Secret Societies, all of which are dedicated to one end, and that is the establishment of a “New World Order.”
Among the more well known of these Secret Societies are the following:
the Knights Templar
the Knights of Malta
the Knights of Columbus
the Ancient and Mystical Order of Rosae Crucis
the Nazi Party
the Communist Party
the Executive Members of the Council on Foreign Relations
the Brotherhood of the Dragon
the Royal Institute of International Affairs
the Trilateral Commission
the Bilderberg Group
the Open Friendly Secret Society (the Vatican)
the Russell Trust
the Skull & Bones
the Scroll & Key
Former Congressman John R. Rarick warned:
The CFR is dedicated to the establishment of a one-world government and it is financed by a number of the largest tax-exempt foundations in the world. This organization wields, because of their connections, they are able to wield immense power and influence over our lives in the areas of finance, business, labor, military, education and mass communication media; and they should be familiar to every American concerned with good government and with preserving and defending the U.S. Constitution and our free-enterprise system.
Yet, the nation’s right to know machinery – the news media – usually so aggressive in exposures designed to inform the public, they are conspicuously silent when it comes to doing any reports on the CFR, its membership, and its activities.
Why is that:
The CFR is the establishment. Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also finances and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high-level decisions for converting the United States from a sovereign constitutional republic into a servile member of a one-world dictatorship.
Isn’t interesting to note that the one man who owns the the so called Conservative New Network is himself a member of the CFR and as such he is also committed to the establishment of a “New World Order!”
Walid Shoebat is a Palestinian American Christian, himself a former terrorist, who converted from Islam to become a born-again Christian.
He lectures today on the dangers of Islamic radicalism and is a strong supporter of the state of Israel.
Born to a Jordanian Muslim father and a American mother, Shoebat lived during the early part of his life in the village of Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem.
A self-proclaimed apostate Muslim, Walid Shoebat says he converted to Christianity in 1993 and began spreading the word about the “dangers of Islam”.
He has been interviewed as a terrorism expert on several television programs, including a handful of appearances on CNN and its sister network, HLN, in 2006 and 2007.
Shoebat is also a frequent speaker at Biblical prophecy conferences comparing End Times eschatology in the Judeo-Christian and Islamic sacred texts.
IMMA Founder Abdullah Omar Naseef tied to Rupert Murdoch?
by Shoebat Foundation on JANUARY 15, 2013 in BLOG, GENERAL
Regular readers to this site probably remember the name Abdullah Omar Naseef. He is the founder of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), the organization at which Huma Abedin served as an assistant editor for approximately twelve years.
During the controversy that involved Abedin and letters sent by Michele Bachmann to various Inspectors General that expressed concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration – Fox News noticeably went out of its way to avoid the story, except when coverage of it was helpful to the deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton.
One very big reason for that might just be found in an article by Diana West.
While it’s common knowledge that Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is the second largest shareholder of News Corp., Fox’s parent company, perhaps not as widely known is Murdoch’s ownership stake in a media company owned by Alwaleed.
The channel is Al Risala, which translates into “the (Islamic) message.” It was launched in 2006 by Saudi prince Talal bin Alwaleed, the nephew of the King of Saudi Arabia and a Murdoch business associate who also owns a 7 percent stake in Murdoch’s News Corp., the parent company of Fox News and other U.S. media outlets.
Murdoch co-owns Al Risala through his acquisition of an 18.97 percent stake in Rotana, Al Risala’s Arabic media parent group, which is owned by Alwaleed.
West links to another find as well. None other than Abdullah Omar Naseef is one of six members who serve on the Advisory Committee of Al Risala:
The Members of the Supreme Advisory Committee of AlResalah channel include:
1. Sheikh Abdullah bin Sulaiman Al Manai, Member of Senior Ulema Commission in Saudi Arabia
2. Dr. Abdullah Naseef, President of World Muslim Congress
3. Dr. Hamed Al Refaie, Secretary General of the Muslim World Congress and President of the International Islamic Forum for Dialogue
4. Dr. Abdullah Al Meslih, Commission of Scientific Signs of Qur’an and Sunnah
5. Sheikh Ali Al Nashwan Religious Advisor to HRH Prince Alwaleed
6. Dr. Abdulaziz Al Askar, Former Head of Media Department at Al Imam bin Muhamed University
When John McCain defended Abedin and smeared Bachmann, Fox News covered it. When John Boehner did the same, Fox News covered it. When former Bachman Campaign Chief Ed Rollins ripped Bachmann and defended Abedin, Fox News covered it. When it came to an opposing view, Fox News ignored it. In one case, host Megyn Kelly insisted that David Horowitz be shut down when he brought it up as a guest on her show.
Any argument put forth that Horowitz was shut down because he went off topic is short-circuited because of the network’s bald-face avoidance of the story absent pro-Abedin reports.
As Abedin fades from public view (at least for the time being) because of Clinton’s decision to step down as Secretary of State, her relevance may subside as well but what is absolutely relevant is the role of Naseef. As the founder of the IMMA, his plans are extremely clear; they include a very real propaganda campaign designed to transform non-Muslim lands into Muslim lands until all lands have Muslim majorities. That’s what the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) was specifically founded to do.
Walid proved it:
An individual whose name has come up in the controversial story involving the sale of Al Gore’s Current TV to Al Jazeera is Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, who has his own program on Al Jazeera and lives in the country where that network is based – Qatar.
This reality rightfully warrants criticism of Gore’s judgment but how about criticism of Murdoch’s judgment?
“Why do Islamic fundamentalists really want to kill us, what drives them and how to fight back.”
Consider that Naseef, the man who sits on the Supreme Advisory Committee of Al Risala – a company Murdoch has a substantial stake in – has a history with Al Qaradawi. In 2004 – 2005, both Qaradawi and Naseef sat on the Board of Trustees of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS). Huma Abedin’s brother Hassan was a fellow at the time.
The sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera will mean that the Jihadist network will attempt to further its agenda actively in the United States. Alwaleed’s ownership stake in News Corp. has already been demonstrated to mean that Fox News will actively avoid exposing Jihadist agendas. Murdoch’s stake in Al Risala appears to mean he benefits when Jihadist agendas are furthered in both Muslim Majority lands…
There are only two nations in history that have established their government based on a covenant they made with God. The first was the nation of Israel and the last was the Republic for the united states of America. Where was that covenant established, you ask?
The first covenant with God was established on the Mayflower by the pilgrims who came to settle in this new land, and they made that covenant in a document that is called the Mayflower Compact, which was signed on November 11, 1620.
The Mayflower Compact stands as the first hallowed document of the American constitutional tradition:
IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience. IN WITNESS whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape-Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, Anno Domini; 1620.
The next document was signed by our Founding Fathers on July 4,1776, and it is called the Declaration of Independence, which document marked our nation’s birth.
The Revolutionary War was fought by our Founding Fathers not only as a rebellion against the tyranny of the mighty British Empire, but also it was a repudiation by our Founding Fathers of the “old world order,” and the monarchial tyranny that was so prevalent in Europe!
This sacred and historic document stands as our birth certificate, describing the manner and/or character that the citizens of this brave “New Nation” are to have and are to strive for via the guiding authority of our Constitution and the Holy Bible.
It is also a sacred Covenant and/or Contract with the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who created these citizens equally, in order that this new government would ensure them those certain inalienable rights, including “life liberty and pursuit of happiness.”
When the Covenant is not kept according to the dictates of the Bible — the Hebrew Holy Scriptures — then GOD acts accordingly towards us, just as He did with the Nation of Israel.
By our Founding Fathers invoking GOD as our Justifier, they implicated HIM in a war for freedom. Therefore, it is imperative that “We the People,” as the beneficiaries of this covenant, keep and fulfill this most sacred Covenant/Contract with the Majesty On High, who is our Sovereign God and Creator!
Outside Independence Hall when
the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended,
Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin,
“Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded,
“A republic, if you can keep it.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
Well on that score we have not done too well!
Our nation is in trouble today because, as happened with the nation of Israel, we have reneged on our original Covenant with God, and we have violated His standards to the point that this D.C. Corporation is today attempting to remove all acknowledgement of Him from our nation’s history; from our classrooms; and from the public squares.
This Corporate entity, called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC, that replaced our Constitutional Republic back in 1871 (through the Act of 1871) are today attempting to replace our long established Judaic/Christian faith in God with a godless ecumenical New Age style faith movement (which is not new at all, it come right out of the pages of Mystery Babylon) which they are calling the “New World Order.”
They are doing this in preparation for what I believe will eventually be what the Bible describes as very totalitarian and oppressive “One World Government” together with a one world monetary system that will usher in the kingdom of the Antichrist, spoken of in Revelation 13.
In times like this, God in His long-suffering love and grace which He bears for His lost children, just as He did with the Nation of Israel, extends to us a hand of grace and reconciliation (now mind you, this has been made possible only through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ and His propitious sacrifice on Calvary’s cross), in the hope that His wayward children would (as outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14) heed His call; humble themselves and pray; turn from their wicked ways and seek His face; in order that God would hear their prayers and heal our land.
Sounding the Alarm
3 Listen to this, Israel. God is calling you to account—and I mean all of you, everyone connected with the family that he delivered out of Egypt. Listen!
2 “Out of all the families on earth, I picked you.
Therefore, because of your special calling, I’m holding you responsible for all your sins.”
3-7 Do two people walk hand in hand if they aren’t going to the same place?
Does a lion roar in the forest if there’s no carcass to devour?
Does a young lion growl with pleasure if he hasn’t caught his supper?
Does a bird fall to the ground if it hasn’t been hit with a stone?
Does a trap spring shut if nothing trips it?
When the alarm goes off in the city, aren’t people alarmed?
And when disaster strikes the city, doesn’t God stand behind it?
The fact is, God, the Master, does nothing without first telling his prophets the whole story.
A Time of Great Sorrow
By Glynda Linkous
Jan 16, 2013 04:46 pm
My people are in a state of waiting. You wait and watch for you know My judgments are coming and will be upon you. Some of you have prepared as I have led you and others have not. You will fare well as long as you have prepared your hearts.
A time of great sorrow approaches, My people. A time when none of you will be sure where to turn or what to do. You must keep your mind and your eyes fixed on Me as it approaches and encompasses you, for this is what is truly necessary.
My people will grieve as never before in this time, for the things that will be done to you and the things you will see. Remember the joy of your salvation and it will succor you in these times, for truly there will be little around you that will bring you joy.
I instruct you in these things now that you may tell your brothers and sisters, and that you may remember them in the times coming, and survive them.
Endure until the end, My precious children, for I long to share eternity and all the glory of heaven with you!
1 Peter 4:7: But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
Isaiah 26:3: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Matthew 4:7-8: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Psalm 35:9: And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
Matthew 24:13: But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

If this de facto D.C. Corporation takes another one of our Constitutional rights away, namely our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, which is in itself illegal for them to do without a Constitutional amendment; and if they are allowed to take all the guns away from law abiding citizens, then guess what… only the criminals will be armed and they will have all the weapons!!!
That does not sound like a good idea to me!
It gets even worse, because if this de facto D.C. Corporation is allowed to get away with this, thereby violating yet another of our Constructional rights, and they have taken several away of late, then we are that much closer to seeing the same scenario unfold here that occurred in the U.S.S.R., under first Liñan and then Stalin; then it happened again under pre-Nazi Germany, that gave rise to Hitler taking over; and also it happened in Red China, under Mao Tse–tung; and in instance of what is today Communist Russia and also in Red China, those people are still struggling today to recover their rights as Human Beings.
Folks, I DO NOT want to see that history repeat itself again, here in the United States!
The fact is however, these politicians under this D.C. Corporation, are more embolden today then ever before because the American people have done nothing to stop them.
Whenever they have in the pass compromised our constitutional rights, and they have been doing so more and more, ever since 9/11, which by the way began under a “Conservative Republican President, by the name of George W. Bush.
Obama has just taken over where Bush left off, with the passage of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), which allows Americans to be held indefinitely without probable cause, without due process, and without a trial… and the American people are apparently none the wiser and are letting it happen!
Well we had better wake up soon, because our time is running out.
“Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and noncitizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.” write Lewis Seiler and former Congressman Dan Hamburg of the watchdog group Voice of the Environment, Inc.
If you look on You tube and type in Concentration camps, you will see that they are being built all over the United States. The issue gained national attention two years ago when it was announced that Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency.
Respected author Peter Dale Scott speculated that the “detention centers could be used to detain American citizens if the Bush administration were to declare martial law.”
Some further Violations of the Constitution under 2nd Amendment would be confiscation guns furthering the GOAL of “terrorism” and or UNDER provisions of martial law.
We are seeing today that the 1st Amendment rights are being taken away such as Suppressing Free Speech , and Religious Freedoms.
Under the enemy combatant designation anyone at the behest of the US government, even if they are a US citizen, can be kidnapped and placed in an internment facility forever without trial. Jose Padilla, an American citizen, spent over four years in a Navy brig before being brought to trial
We will be imposed with a NATIONAL Id card, and possibly a chip to track your location in the United States. IF YOU DO not participate, I would imagine you can be charged and arrested.
The answer clearly lies in the fact that over the past decade we have witnessed an extreme acceleration of the physical implementation of a framework and infrastructure ready to receive those who will not go along with a coordinated destruction of traditional American values and freedom.”
Ever since 9/11 this de facto U.S. Corporation has used that horrendous event to pass laws that go against our U.S. Constitution, which according to the Constitution they are not allowed to do without a Constitutional Amendment; and yet they have constantly been doing just that, and have been getting away with it; thereby robbing us each year of more of our rights, and they have been doing so under the guise of national security and fighting terrorism. How convenient?
Our U.S. Constitution stood for at least 95 years, from 1776 to 1871, when the Act of 1871 was illegally passed by the Forty-First Congress, without the Constitutional authority to do so.
“The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in session. I refer you to the “Acts of the Forty-First Congress,” Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62.
On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act titled: “An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia.”
This is also known as the “Act of 1871.”
What does this mean?
Well, it means that Congress, under no constitutional authority to do so, created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, which is a ten mile square parcel of land.”
Subsequent to that date of infamy our nation ceased to operate as a Constitutional Republic and we have until this present time operated as the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION.
What does that mean?
It means that our organic Constitution and our Republic have both been illegally replaced by a Corporate Constitution and a de facto Corporation (which by definition cannot be a form of government), and so the organic version of our Constitution has been in moth balls now for over 141 years; and our government has ceased to operate as a Rupublic and has instead operated as a corporation, and it is registered as such in the state of Delaware… look it up!
Now I hear many people today say that is not a bad thing, operating as a corporation, in fact they say that we would be better off if they would operate as a true corporation, instead of being in the red all the time.
The only thing is, under this U.S. Corporation, as it is with any corporate entity, the corporate officers, which in this case consist of the President and the Congress (which include both the House and the Senate); being that they are a Corporation, they take their orders from the Board of Directors, and I might add, that is not the American public!
The UNITED STATES CORPORATION operates as any corporation does, as you can see in the above chart, where the power flows from the top down.
Under our de jure Constitutional Republic it should flow from the people up.
Here under a Corporation, the people at the top are the ones calling the shots; and in the case of this de facto D.C. Corporation, we have the lowest level as employees.
How does that work with the idea of a Republic that is of the people, by the people, and for the people?
The answer is, it doesn’t… because it can’t.
These people in Washington DC are not working for us at all; and certainly (as is event from the $700 Billion bailout that Bush pushed through Congress in 2008, that these people are not at all making decisions anymore in our best interest, but instead are making decisions to benefit the mega corporations and the big banks.
By law the first obligation of the directors of a Corporation is to the Stock Holders, which in this instance (as I’ve already pointed out) it is NOT “We the People” that they are serving, but rather it is these International Bankers, who have been printing and loaning us our own money at interest for 100 years now, ever since 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was passed.
Coming out of the Civil War the Republic for the united states of America (please note this is the way it is written and spelled in our U.S. Constitution, with small letters) was bankrupt and the international bankers, under the direction of the Rothschild family, with the help of people like J.P. Morgan, the Rockefellers and others, they used their immense wealth and power to bribe and coerced members of Congress, and Presidents, in the same way business is done today in D.C.; and the United States was made into a Corporation, in order to make the combined sweat equity of the American people the collateral for the national debt.
As is the case with any corrupt system if you want to find the source of the corruption, all you have to do is follow the money; and in this case the money trail leads right back to these same people (this international group of bankers, of which 70% are foreign nationals) who also own and control The Federal Reserve.
That is our history, folks… look it up!
Subsequent to 9/11, we are seeing our Constitutional rights being trampled upon more and more; and there is even some speculation in many circles that this de facto U.S. Corporation, under orders from this illegal Board of Directors, these International Bankers, that they surreptitiously, through black ops, either instigated 9/11, or allowed it to happen, in order to accomplish an already existing agenda and goal, which continues to unfold before our eyes to this hour.
I can tell you I didn’t want to believe that and I actually took offense at the thought myself when I first heard it; but subsequently I have to say I’m not sure anymore.
Certainly things equally as bad have happened before in the not too distant past, in places like the former U.S.S.R., in Nazi Germany, and in Red China.
I have to say that some very wicked and evil people are behind this de facto corporation, and it was these same group of international bankers who made money on both sides of two World Wars, and finance both sides each time.
Ask yourself how many people had to die on both sides, during both World Wars, so that these men, this Bankers, could make a profit?
Don’t think that the killing of innocent people is a problem for these people, who think like this; they’ve done it before and they can do it again.
What is that saying that “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely?!”
Folks the bottom line is this is all about power and money; and the ability to control people!
Is it not a fact that every Federal official – including the President of the United States – and every Congressman and Senator – that they each take an oath of office, whereby they swear to ” preserve, uphold and to defend” our Constitution?
They certainly aren’t doing that anymore, are they?
Hasn’t anyone noticed?
Instead of preserving and defending our Constitution, these members of Congress have consistently proposed and have passed any number of laws that directly violate our Constitution.
They have again renewed the controversial US Patriot Act, which was passed immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when the People of America were in shell shock and were angered following 9/11
Since 9/11, our Constitutional Rights have continually been taken away from us, a bit at a time.
Getting back to my original point, how utterly ludicrous it is to think that by disarming the American public that we will somehow be safer from the madness that we all have seen too much of over these last several years?
We are living today in an increasingly dangerous world, and it is beyond naive and just plain dumb to think that by outlawing our right to defend ourselves and our families that this is somehow going to make our cities safer… I think not!!!
Also, as I have pointed out, this exact same thing was done several times in history just before a nation loses it’s sovereignty and freedom.
Could there be a similar agenda here, do you think?
Could politicians, under this de facto corporate system, be bought; and could they be controlled and manipulated out of personal greed and ambition… what do you think?
The handwriting is already on the wall, folks, and it is up to you to take back your country.
You can do so by joining the already inhabited Republic for the united states of America:
I think the following posters make my point very well, with regard to our preserving our Second Amendment Rights, and putting these de facto politicians back in their proper place again, as Civil Servants, who work for us!
Armed teachers, guards bolster school security in Israel
By Greg Tepper
Published December 30, 2012
JERUSALEM – Americans intent on ensuring a school massacre like the one in Newtown, Conn., never happens again could learn a lot from Israel, where the long menu of precautions includes armed teachers.
The Jewish state, which has long faced threats of terrorist strikes in crowded locations including schools, takes an all-of-the-above approach to safety in the classroom. Fences, metal detectors and armed private guards are part of a strategy overseen by the country’s national police. And the idea of armed teachers in the classroom, which stirred much controversy in the wake of the U.S. attack, has long been in practice in Israel, though a minority of them carry weapons today.
and the Bible assures us that he will help us when we call upon Him!

Dick Mills, an evangelist and prophet, servant of the Lord:Dick went home to the Lord in April of 2012. Dick’s ministry was characterized by the unique gifts God has blessed him with. As he ministered, the power of the Holy Spirit moved through him to teach, edify, and uplift. His ministry was to the congregation as well as the individual, as the Lord spoke through him with personal Words of Wisdom, encouragement, and prophecy. His services informed, enlightened, and motivated people to a higher level of commitment to God. His mission lives on through the dedication of the Dick Mills Ministries staff and his legacy of personal ministry through his son, David, and his grandsons, Judah and Blake. The following are the personal testimonies of Pat Robertson and Jack Hayford:
“Dick has one of the most unique ministries of any man of God I know in the world. He has been used of God to bring deep spiritual blessings at crucial times in my own life, and I am sure this is true of tens of thousands of others around the country.” – Pat Robertson, President and CEO, CBN
“For my part, Dick Mills’ character, ministry in the Word of God and prophetic gift continue to define the ministry of a prophet to the Body of Christ.” – Jack Hayford
God’s Word is Living and Powerful By Dick Mills
“My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Ps. 73:26 NKJ).
This verse was visibly demonstrated to me in an intensive care unit. Leitha, a friend of the family, was rushed to the hospital suffering from a severe heart attack. Hovering between life and death, she was being monitored closely by the hospital staff.
The machine attached to her showed a dot and a wavy line, a dot and a way line. It was explained to me that this was an indication that the heart beat was normal and that Leitha was resting comfortably.
Due to the serious nature of Leitha’s condition, the nurse in attendance limited my wife and me to a visit of five minutes or less. She also expressed a great concern that any “excitement” could cause Leitha irreparable damage.
For four minutes my wife and I carried on the normal social amenities with Leitha. How are you? Are you eating? Are you resting well? All the time we were talking, I kept watching the monitor. There it was, steady as a clock: dot, wavy line; dot, wavy line.
With one minute to go, I quoted Psalm 73:26. Immediately the lines on the monitor jumped. They began to go up and down, even disappearing off the top and bottom of the screen. Quickly the nurse hurried us out of the room thinking that Leitha was going to die from the sudden burst of excitement.
A few days later, however, Leitha was released from the hospital completely healed. Those lines running up and down and off both top and bottom of the monitor were visible proof that God’s Word is living and powerful, able to penetrate joints and marrow. We saw it with our own eyes!
Source: The Spirit-Filled Believer’s Daily Devotional by Dick Mills
7 Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
I can tell you that this man was used of the Lord in my life to give me both Words of Knowledge and Wisdom on several different occasions.
Shortly after I was born-again I happened to be in a Christian Businessmen’s dinner meeting, where Dick Mills was the speaker.
What happened was I happened to be seated in the back, in a room that was filled with about 300 people, and I just had a thought in my mind, which I didn’t vocalize, that it would be really cool if I could get a message from the Lord today.
No sooner than Dick Mills came up to the podium he pointed right back in my direction and said the man in the back with the curly hair who said he’d like to get a word from the Lord, would you come up here please?
I might also add that this happened shortly after I had received my first Word of Knowledge from another minster (who had never seen me before and didn’t know me from Adam) that told me about an event that had occurred approximately five years before.
When I was nineteen I was involved in a near fatal auto accident.
I was out on a Friday night with three of my friends. We had spent the evening bowling and were on our way home.
My one friend, who was driving, had just gotten a brand new SS Chevelle 390 Super Sport as a gift from his parents.
We had stopped to drop off my other friend’s girlfriend at her house, and for some reason, after they had gotten out of the car, my friend with the car (Bobby), decided to start horsing around and was punching the engine to lay some rubber on the street.
All I can remember was my trying to put my seatbelt on, but was unable to because it was stuck.
I later learned told that he said he had mistakenly hit the accelerator, instead of the brake, and the car had run into a tree; and I guess at that point I went head first into either the dash or windshield.
The next thing I remember is I woke up in a hospital ICU room about a week and half later, from a coma.
This experience made an indelible impression on me, in that for some reason, when I awaken from the coma God was VERY real to me.
I thought I was a Christian because I had been raised in the church, was baptized as an infant, and was confirmed at age 13; at which time I stopped attending church. I guess it was because I figured I had fulfilled all the requirements.
I had no idea what it meant to be a Christian; that it was much more than merely fulfilling some religious denominational requirements or rituals.
Anyway five years later I was now living in California, and it was here that I became a born-again Christian.
I used to listen to this preacher every morning in my early drive to work and decided this one Sunday to attend his church.
While setting out in the congregation in the middle of the service this pastor, who again I repeat didn’t know me at all and had never seen me before, he called me to come up to the front and then proceeded to give me my first Word of Knowledge.
He talked about my accident and told me that the Lord had sent an angel and had snatched me out of the hands of Satan. He also told me other things too, personal things, that he had no way of knowing.
Like I said this was my first experience with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and it was God’s way of letting me know that everything I read in the Bible is true.
We serve an all powerful supernatural God and yet much of the church today, as the Bible said would happen (in 2 Timothy 3:5), where it says (talking about the condition of the church) that though they have a form of godliness, they have denied its power!
I have learned that this Christian walk is far more than our following some religious dictates or dogma of a any one church denomination, and mind you none of that is necessarily bad and it can be very helpful if it is practiced according to Scripture.
My point is this, if you are facing difficulty in your life today, trials and tribulations is what the Bible calls it (and really who today isn’t) then you need to know the God of the Supernatural, who the Bible says is ever mindful of every detail of your life.
It even says (in Psalm 139 that he has scheduled each and every day of our life, before we were born, and recorded each day in a book:
New Living Translation (NLT)
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
The Bible also tells us:
J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)
29-31 “Two sparrows sell for a farthing, don’t they? Yet not a single sparrow falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. The very hairs of your head are all numbered. Never be afraid, then—you are far more valuable than sparrows.
New King James Version (NKJV)
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[a] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
So whatever you are facing individually, or whatever we are facing, collectively, as a nation, in both instances Jesus is the answer!
New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For by Him (Jesus) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
And just before He left earth He told His disciples:
New King James Version (NKJV)
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
So what does all of this mean?
It means that if you are a Christian, God has set spiritual forces to work on your behalf, to train you and to prepare you for eternity; and His promise (as found in Philippians 1:6) for all of us is that He will continue that work until its completion.
God never gives up on you and so don’t you give up on yourself!
Below is an article that was forwarded to me today by a friend, but the situation I’m afraid is much much worse, and this one item is but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the level of fraud and corruption in this D.C. Corporation.
Sometimes you just cannot argue with the numbers. If these numbers are correct and true, the USA has bigger problems on their hands other than who was elected President.
From Bill O’Reilly’s message board:
Most everyone suspected fraud, but these numbers prove it and our government and media refuse to do anything about it.
As each state reported their final election details, the evidence of voter fraud is astounding. Massive voter fraud has been reported in areas of OH and FL, with PA, WI and VA, all are deploying personnel to investigate election results.
Here are just a few examples of what has surfaced with much more to come.
In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).
In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).
In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.
In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.
The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.
Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.
In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.
NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.
I’m not at all surprised at any of this and though I didn’t want to believe it at the time, as I was a loyal Republican for all of my adult life (until recently), I am equally sure now that there was fraud also on the Republican side during the 2008 election, when Bush was elected.
There are some very powerful, evil, and corrupt people (who have all the money in the world at their disposal) who are behind all of this, and I’m not just talking about the corrupt politicians either. They are obvious, but they are just puppets on a string, who are following orders.
The Derivative Fraud that caused the 2008 melt down on Wall Street that led to that $700 Billion bailout that Bush pushed through Congress was not an accident.
Everything that has been going on, especially since 9/11, but more than that, it has been going on for the last 140 years, and all of it has been calculated to undermine and weaken, not only our sovereignty as a nation, but also our economy, and the resolve of the American people, in an ongoing effort to strip the American people of their Constitutional Rights, in order to enslave us… and folks, we didn’t just get here overnight either!
What we see happening today has been developing slowly but surely for the last 140 years, ever since the Act of 1871 was passed.
After the Civil War.our nation was bankrupt, and the only way these International Bankers (which then and still today are headed up by the Rothschild family) would release money to us, in order to keep our nation going, was if our politicians would allow both our Republic and our Constitution to be set aside; and the way they did that was to change our Republic form of government into the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC, whereby the American people through adhesion contracts, that we all have signed for things like marriage licenses, birth certificates, drivers licenses and etc, where by our signature to these documents (if you read the small print at the bottom), we are agreeing that we are 14th Amendment citizens of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, and by doing so we are inadvertently agreeing that our combined sweat equity, through taxation, should become the collateral for the national debt; and that is exactly what they did, and that is where we are today!
The next move is to force us into a “One World Government,” known also as “The New World Order,” and also a One world Monetary system, that eventually will be the “Mark of the Beast.” That is their plan anyway… unless “We the People” say otherwise, but we don’t have a lot of time.
Please click on the link below and check this information out for yourself:
Another thing, did you know that according to section 4 of the 14th Amendment (which by the way was never ratified — Click here) that it states that the we, as the American public, CANNOT question the national debt?
Now I ask you, why would they put that in the 14th Amendment?
I’ve even heard Nancy Pelosi state that very thing on national television, as they were pushing through Congress all the Billion Dollar expenditure bills that nobody was reading before passing. .
Don’t believe me, then read it for yourself!
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
These people who are controlling both parties in our nation (Republican and Democrat alike) and also the media, are the same people who control the international purse strings of the world and more specifically, they have for the last 100 years (ever since 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was past) controlled that privately held corporation, called the Federal Reserve Bank, here in America.
Just take a look at what has happened to our currency, as a result of their management over these last 100 years, as this same International Group of Bankers have virtually dug a hole for the American people to fall in (or fall off of, in the case of the “fiscal cliff”), and all the while they have gotten wealthy beyond imagination, at our expense.
Our forefathers warned us not to do the very thing that we did:
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
~ Thomas Jefferson, in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)
What do you suppose Henry Ford meant by the following quote?
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
~ Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company
It is said that if we fail to learn from history, then we are destined to repeat it; and what the American public needs to recognize is that this constant pitting and arguing between the Right and the Left, which the media both instigates and perpetuates, along with the gradual stripping away of our Constitutional Rights, amid serious economic problems, is exactly what happened in pre-Nazi Germany (also by design), in the 1930’s, and that same strategy that was used there comes out of the same playbook that is being used on us today.
Just as Hitler and Stalin used the children to spread their propaganda, our government today, under this de facto D. C. Corporation is doing the same thing!
These rogues have done their job well, and from all appearances most of the American public don’t even have a clue and are none the wiser, or worse they don’t care.
More than likely however, the I don’t care attitude is probably more because so many are caught up with their own personal lives, in just trying to survive, that they don’t want to consider what should be obvious. I know, because I was there too not too long ago. I just didn’t want to believe that my government was corrupt.
The problem is this D. C. Corporation and the media that supports them (as their propaganda mouthpiece) are walking lockstep together; and just as it was in the story of the Pied Piper, this whole nation is being led off more than just a physical cliff, we are being led into economic slavery; and what will eventually become the Antichrist Kingdom.
America is in serious trouble and this Nation’s only hope of survival is in Jesus Christ and also in 2 Chronicles 7:14, where God tells us that if we would humble ourselves and pray; and turn from our wicked ways; that He would hear from heaven and heal our land.
I know the Antichrist Kingdom is going to come, it has too because the Bible has said so; but there is nothing that says the United States and the American people have to be a part of it.
When the Lord comes back the Bible clearly says that there will be “Sheep Nations” that have not bowed to the Antichrist; and there will also be “Goat Nations” who have; and I want to make sure that the United States is not in the latter group.
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goat.
If we fail to do this, then I’m afraid we are destined to go the way of every other nation in history that has defied God and has turned their back on him.
As a Christian and also a student of the Bible, it occurs to me that our Lord warned us what to look for and what these times would be like, just before His Second Coming.
He said it would be just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot, where people where so caught up with their own personal lives, carrying on business as usual, as these people (in Noah’s time) where probably trying to survive just as we are, so much so that they paid no attention to the warning signs that were all around them!.
God’s Kingdom Is Within You
20 Some of the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the kingdom of God come?”
Jesus answered, “God’s kingdom is coming, but not in a way that you will be able to see with your eyes.21 People will not say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ because God’s kingdom is within[a] you.”
22 Then Jesus said to his followers, “The time will come when you will want very much to see one of the days of the Son of Man. But you will not see it. 23 People will say to you, ‘Look, there he is!’ or, ‘Look, here he is!’ Stay where you are; don’t go away and search.
When Jesus Comes Again
24 “When the Son of Man comes again, he will shine like lightning, which flashes across the sky and lights it up from one side to the other. 25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by the people of this time.
26 When the Son of Man comes again, it will be as it was when Noah lived. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying, and giving their children to be married until the day Noah entered the boat. Then the flood came and killed them all.
28 It will be the same as during the time of Lot. People were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom,[b] fire and sulfur rained down from the sky and killed them all. 30 This is how it will be when the Son of Man comes again.
31 “On that day, a person who is on the roof and whose belongings are in the house should not go inside to get them. A person who is in the field should not go back home. 32 Remember Lot’s wife.[c]33 Those who try to keep their lives will lose them. But those who give up their lives will save them. 34 I tell you, on that night two people will be sleeping in one bed; one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 There will be two women grinding grain together; one will be taken, and the other will be left. [ 36 Two people will be in the field. One will be taken, and the other will be left.]”[d]
37 The followers asked Jesus, “Where will this be, Lord?”
Jesus answered, “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”
My hope and prayer is that it is not as bad as it seems, and that it is NOT too late for us to change… and to repent, as a nation!.
I sincerely hope and pray that as happened with Elijah, after his Mt. Carmel experience, with the priests of Baal, when he ran away and hid after Jezebel threaten him.
The Bible says that he prayed and asked God to take him, because he thought he was the last believer left… but God’s response was that there was 7,000 still who had not bowed to Baal.
Well my prayer and hope for America is that this proverbial “Sleeping Giant,” called the church would wake up before it’s too late, as our time is running short!
We at this point need a full on miracle to turn this whole mess around; but I know for a fact that our God is well able to perform just such a miracle, if we who are called by His name and are His covenant children would only believe and pray!
That’s the promise I read in my Bible… how about you?
And the instructions for these Watchmen are to watch and pray!
6 Jerusalem, I have put guards on the walls to watch.
They must not be silent day or night.
You people who remind the Lord of your needs in prayer
should never be quiet.
Prayer is the means by when we connect with heaven, not to give God our orders and tell Him what we want, however there is a seeming paradox here because we are also instructed in the Bible to pray and supplicate in our times of need, meaning that God does expect us to petition Him in our hour of need, but still that is not the primary purpose of prayer.
No, prayer is about our getting on God’s wave length, and our learning to resonate with Him as Jesus did.
We ALL have been programmed and have been taught how to think according to this fallen world… it’s in our culture, our education, and our upbringing from the time we were children!
As a Christian we are NOT to walk according to the world!
Jesus told His disciples at one point, “As the Father has called me, I am calling you.”
The Bible calls Jesus our elder brother; it also calls Him the “Last Adam” too, which means Jesus in every way is our example and our model of what God had initially purposed to accomplish through Adam, prior to the fall; and so Jesus (through His life and ministry in the earth) exemplifies for us what God’s will and intention is for each of us, and that is for us to follow and to serve the Father, by faith, through the power and by the direction of the Holy Spirit… just as Jesus did.
Understand this, if you are a Christian then your life is no longer your own!
The fact is, if you are Born-again you have now been enlisted into God’s service and you have also been reconciled back into God’s family, through the propitious work which Jesus did for each of us on Calvary’s cross; and so your relationship with God is now just as it was with Adam and Eve before the fall.
It is God who has done this and has made it possible for us to come home!
He did it at great expense and though this gift of salvation comes to us free of charge, it did not come cheap!
Jesus gave His All, and our response is that we give our all!
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
34 When He (Jesus) had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”
The Bible clearly says that, as Christians, we are to be available and prepared for God’s service at ALL times, in season and out – 24/7! (2 Timothy 4:2)
However so often as Believers we can get discouraged, if we keep our focus on the storms of our life and not on God’s Word; and when we do so, we are shifting our focus off of the only power and hope that we have, that will see us through the storm.
In these instances we are making the exact same mistake that Peter made, when Jesus called to him, for him to walk out to Him on the water.
Jesus Walks on the Water
22 Immediately Jesus told his followers to get into the boat and go ahead of him across the lake. He stayed there to send the people home. 23 After he had sent them away, he went by himself up into the hills to pray. It was late, and Jesus was there alone. 24 By this time, the boat was already far away from land. It was being hit by waves, because the wind was blowing against it.
25 Between three and six o’clock in the morning, Jesus came to them, walking on the water. 26 When his followers saw him walking on the water, they were afraid. They said, “It’s a ghost!” and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus quickly spoke to them, “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”
28 Peter said, “Lord, if it is really you, then command me to come to you on the water.”
29 Jesus said, “Come.”
And Peter left the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. 30 But when Peter saw the wind and the waves, he became afraid and began to sink. He shouted, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught Peter. Jesus said, “Your faith is small. Why did you doubt?”
32 After they got into the boat, the wind became calm. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, “Truly you are the Son of God!”
You will note in the above verses of scripture that Jesus first sent His disciples into the storm, and as we study the Bible we find that this sort of thing happens many times, as there are many examples that can be found in the Bible of God sending His covenant children into problems and storms of one kind or another.
How about when Abraham was called by God to go to a land that he know not?
God did not give Abraham any information at all about where this Promised Land was, or how long it would take for them to get there.
Was this not a test of Abraham’s faith?
Here Abraham was being asked to uproot his family, leave his home, his family, and his security behind, and journey to a place that he knew nothing about, and then when He finally got there, to this Promised Land, he found himself in the middle of a famine.
How do you like them apples…isn’t this life of faith fun? J
Understand this, God has a reason and purpose for everything He does in the life of EVERY believer; and to learn what that reason is we have to look to His Word, the Holy Bible.
In the same way that our military will put young recruits through wartime simulations and tests, even under live fire, in order to teach them how to react under pressure, likewise God does the same thing and for the same reason.
2 And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.
3 So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. 4 Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.
5 You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you.
In reference to the above wilderness experience, in the scripture below we are encouraged and told that these things were written for our benefit, as examples for us to follow; and even though at times we may feel as though we are being pushed pass our breaking point, God’s promise to us is that He will not allow us to be tempted (or tested) beyond our ability to withstand the pressure, but along with that He will give us an avenue of escape.
1 Corinthians 10:1-14
Warnings From Israel’s History
10 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.
6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.” 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. 9 We should not test Christ, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.
11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!
13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
We are also told in the Bible (see Ephesians 6:12) that we are not fighting (or wrestling) against flesh and blood, but rather we are fighting against wicked principalities and powers; against supernatural beings of darkness that fill this age, and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
And the Bible goes on to tell us that this battle CANNOT be won through carnal means:
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
We need to understand that the Christian life is to be a supernatural life; and as the Bible clearly tells us that we are facing a very formidable and supernatural enemy of Darkness, if we are to be successful in our battle against him, then we had better learn how to use those spiritual weapons that God has provided us!
Faith by its very definition is the substance of things hoped for that is evident by things NOT seen or felt in the natural.
Consequently, it is in that very space between when you first begin to pray and believe for your miracle, and when the miracle or answer to prayer manifests that faith resides.
As the Apostle Paul points out, in the Bible, “HOPE” is what you have need of before you have the manifestation or answer to your prayer, and once you have it in hand and have received what you having been praying for, hope is no longer needed. .
If we are going to be successful at this walk of faith, then we have to pay attention to the rules of engagement, as they are taught in the Bible.
The Bible says God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not ours either; for as high as heaven is above the earth, so are God’s ways and His thoughts above ours.
Get a clue folks, God is not the one who needs to change, we are!
We must never think that just because life may be hard for us, under our current circumstances, that even though we may be faced with many challenges, that God is not hfere with us; and that He will not be faithful to His Word, to perform it in our life and in our circumstances!
We have a sure record that tells us otherwise; that He will be faithful, in the same way He has always been faithful to every Saint we read about in His Word!
These examples that we read in the Bible are intended for our edification and guidance in our time of need; so instead of giving up and/or wavering under the pressure, we need to learn to stand and to trust God!
Below is an excellent message on the subject of prayer, which I ran across the other day, and so I thought to pass it along to you.
“Legend has it that after a morning praying in the monastery of Piedra, a novice asked an abbot, ‘Do they (our prayers) make God closer to us?’
‘I will answer you with another question,’ said the Abbot. ‘All those prayers you pray will they make the sun rise tomorrow?’
‘Of course not! The sun rises because it obeys a universal law!’
‘So that is the answer to your question. God is near to us, regardless of the prayers we say.’
The novice rebelled, ‘You want to say that our prayers are useless?’
‘No. If you don’t get up early, you will never be able to see the sun rise. If you don’t pray, even though God is always near, you will never be able to notice His presence.’
Pray and watch, this should be the motto of the Warrior of Light. If you just watch, you’ll start seeing ghosts where none exist. If you merely pray, you will not have time to execute the works that the world sorely needs.” ~ Paulo Coelho
Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory
Published on Nov 19, 2012
In her final days as Commander of the International Space Station, Sunita Williams of NASA recorded an extensive tour of the orbital laboratory and downlinked the video on Nov. 18, just hours before she, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and Flight Engineer Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency departed in their Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft for a landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan. The tour includes scenes of each of the station’s modules and research facilities with a running narrative by Williams of the work that has taken place and which is ongoing aboard the orbital outpost.
Sunita Williams (born Sunita Pandya Krishna; September 19, 1965) is an Indian American astronaut and a United States Navy officer who holds the record for longest space flight by a woman. She was assigned to the International Space Station as a member of Expedition 14 and Expedition 15. In 2012, she served as a flight engineer on Expedition 32 and then commander of Expedition 33. In addition to holding the record for the longest space flight time among female space travelers (195 days, not counting her ongoing 2012 mission), she holds the record for number of spacewalks for a female, and most spacewalk time for a female. Williams first broke the two spacewalk records for women space travellers—most number of spacewalks, and most spacewalk time—during Expedition 14/15 in 2007, but both records were surpassed by Peggy Whitson during Expedition 16. Williams regained both records during her sixth spacewalk, on September 5, 2012, and currently has 50 hours and 40 minutes of spacewalk time (seven walks).
