I am the Bible.
I am God's wonderful library.
I make known to all, Him who is Truth.
To the weary pilgrim, I am a good, strong staff.
To the one who sits in black gloom, [like the Dalit or Untouchable in India, or the drug or porn addict or the victim of abuse or neglect, or the tortured Christian in Laos or China or Burma or Nepal, or the Sudanese Christian slave abducted from Darfur, or the well-off American enslaved by materialism and self-indulgment and self-centeredness and ease] I am glorious light.
To those who stoop beneath many burdens, I am sweet rest.
To him who has lost his way, I am a safe guide.
To those who have been hurt by sin, I am healing balm.
To the discouraged, I whisper a glad message of hope.
To those who are distressed by the storms of life,
I am an anchor, sure and steadfast.
To those who suffer in lonely solitude,
I am as a cool, soft hand resting on a fevered brow.
Oh, child of man, to best defend me, JUST USE ME.
The Bible is God's road map as you travel through life.--from Faith Magazine, Author Unknown
AND JESUS, WHO NEVER WAS A CHRISTIAN (THE TERM WAS CREATED BY THE ROMANS AND GREEKS TO DESCRIBE CHRIST'S FOLLOWERS OR DISCIPLES IN ANTIOCH), IS STILL NOT A CHRISTIAN. A CHRISTIAN IS A LITTLE CHRIST, OR A CHRIST-FOLLOWER--BUT CHRIST DOES NOT FOLLOW HIMSELF, HE IS CHRIST, OUR HEAD AND LORD AND KING! THEREFORE, HE CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN--HE IS JEWISH AND HE IS LORD OF LORDS. HE LEADS, WE FOLLOW. HE IS KING, WE ARE ALL HIS SUBJECTS AND SERVANTS (OR BOND-SLAVES, AS PAUL PUTS IT). THAT IS A BIG DIFFERENCE! BUT WE DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND IN DEMOCRATIC AMERICA THIS BASIC FACT ABOUT YESHUA AND US! WE ARE HIS SLAVES, HE OWNS AND RULES OVER US! WHAT RIGHTS DO SLAVES HAVE? NONE! WE JUST DO NOT GET IT.
Be sure to order this excellent, readable (in one sitting) booklet from Zola Levitt ministries, which for a small sum will give you all the information you need to review what is being taught (rightly or wrongly) to you in your church. Do not be a passive, brainwashed member of the flock--but be one who knows that the Jews, saved or unsaved, are still the apple of God's eye, still the Covenanted People from the Old Testament period to the New Testament period, still possessing a glorious future in God's master blueprint for the Earth and its Gentile peoples and the Jewish people, still the people who gave us the Messiah and Savior of the World; lastly, and it bears repeating, the Lord Jesus Christ is STILL A JEW. Replacement Theology, to exist, must deny, ignore, or otherwise use correction fluid on this fact to make the claims it does. Imagine, taking away the rights, privileges, and promises God gave Christ's own people, the Jews, when Christ is a Jew! Wouldn't that offend him? You bet it does! So let's not join those who do it! I don't want to be in their shoes when someday they face a Savior who is still Jewish, every inch of him!
Thank God, the president has withstood these politicians and Congressmen so far, allowing our troops to fight and their commanders to lead. He has interfered on his own, however, creating a stalemate for a number of years, but now has seen the light and put the war back in the hand of military men, where it belongs, and the war is going ever so much better now, as we all can see. Our troops are defending our liberty and also sacrificing lives and limbs for the sake of other people's liberty as well. They offer to go back, even when their tours are ended! They will bear the scars, mental and physical, of their ordeals in some of the toughest fighting on the planet for years to come, even the rest of their lives, but they do not regret what they have done--serve under the Red, White, and Blue! Hats off, cheers, and our prayers--and great thanks--to these brave soldiers, men and women who have surpassed all expectations again and again despite the spineless Congressmen at home who have undercut their efforts every way they could, as well as the Hollywood celebs who have said every mean thing they could to make our soldiers all look like torturers and killers, not the defenders of liberty and our national security, that they truly are! God bless you all, in the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and in all the support services as well! WE LOVE YOU, WE RESPECT YOU, WE HONOR YOU! YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT!
And thank God for French help, led by Lafayette, which turned the tables for us when we stood alone against the mightiest power on earth, King George and Great Britain! We would not have won against them if not for the help from France in money, arms, and men, and great leaders such as Lafayette. God used France to deliver the English into our hands, so that we could survive and become a free people under God--not King George and his god, whatever it was! We owe France a great debt today, though it was partially repaid by Americans going to fight in World Wars I and II, to help France against Germany and even liberate France from German occupation. Radio Talk hosts who continue to ridicule France and even Sarkozy ought to shut up if they cannot remember history--we have France (which, though turning atheist and hedonist and secularist) to thank for the existence of our free nation--in large measure, it was French assistance at a most critical time that tipped the balance in our favor! Viva la France! We hope and pray for the best for France, despite what the Moslems are presently trying to do to that former seedbed of liberty and equality among men.
(2) The king of Poland who stood with an Austrian ruler against Sulieman the Magnificent's Turkish armies attacking Vienna and made them pull back. This was Islam's final onslaught from the east, and it was so unsuccessful, it was not tried again.
(3)God Almighty, who sent a great storm and stopped the Moslem navy from attacking and capturing Rome and Italy, which was their plan to take over Europe with their superior sea power.
(4)Yet another Moslem armada was sent out to take the Americas for Allah, but a storm from the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob met the ships and sank them; otherwise, flags with the Crescent Moon would wave over North and South America today instead of banners showing the Cross of Christ.
(5) Christopher Columbus, whose first name he mentioned many times, in his very signature, as meaning "Christ-bearer". Whatever went wrong in practice during the colonization, he was absolutely right in his vision: to bring the Cross of Christ and the Gospel as he knew it then to the East Indies, which turned out to be (for the West) a New World; what he brought more than outweighed the harm caused by the conquistidores and other treasure-hunters, for the two continents that comprised the "East Indies" were full of highly religious but barbaric Indian civilizations based on blood sacrifice and enslavement. Would anyone in his right mind want to return to the rule of the Incas and Aztecs, giving up any chance of personal liberty and democracy, not to mention freedom of conscience and religion?
(6) Generations of courageous Spanish mothers, who sent all their sons to fight the Moors, the Moslem occupiers of Spain, until Spain was won back. This gave democracy a chance, along with freedom of conscience, though freedom of conscience had to wait much longer to take root, until the 20th century when Franco, the Fascist dictator, died. Today, the Catholic church no longer holds absolute sway, and could no longer reinstitute the Spanish Inquisition against Jews and Protestantss, even if it wanted to (which I doubt). Yet the incredible sacrifices for Spanish freedom made by uncountable, unknown Spanish mothers is forgotten today by the secular-humanist, liberal majority in Spain, who would just as soon hand their country over to Moslem terrorists than fight for Spain, if that is the cost of peace with their attackers. Spain, if we recall Paul's heart desire, was a country he very much wanted to evangelize. Did he ever go there and preach the Gospel? We have no record of it. But his aim was to take the Gospel from one end of the Roman empire to the other, evidently, and it is hard to imagine that this greatest pioneer and apostle of the Faith did not succeed, even if it went unrecorded in the Book of Acts.

This news could well go in the Gratitude to God section, for God has answered our urgent prayers about the wide-open border! Though our U.S. Federal Government legal arm and the Bush Administration (to put the blame squarely where it belongs) has betrayed the American people and the law of this country for reasons that do not bear the light of public scrutiny, God has an ear open to the oppressed! This proves it! We thank God!
Are you praying, that this final judgment that fell on Jericho (which wasn't as wicked as present-American culture and society and government is today, is delayed at least? We need time for the Third Great Awakening in America! It is not a done deal--we need to pray for mercy and grace to be around to receive God's mighty move of the Spirit!
I hold you up in prayer.
While your red, white, and blue is waving,
I stand with you in prayer.
you're weighed in the balance.
Repent and forsake evil ways,
building upon God's grace.
God wants to change your ways.
God wants revival today.
I have named the Anti-Christ Michael after Michael Jackson the indefatible, charismatic New Age rock star and icon, and the Anti-Christ's prophet portrayed here has Michael's moniker in the role of being his supreme pontiff, or Vicar. No one knows their real names, of course, yet I believe both will probably be New Age Religionists, and no doubt the False Prophet pictured here will wear universal religious icons or symbols, such as the Cross of Christendom, the Menorah of Judaism, the Egyptian ankh of ancient pagan religion, the Star and Crescent of Islam, and so on--so that he will represent the major world religions as well as paganism/hedonism and blend them all together into one unified world religious system that will demand that everyone serve and worship the Anti-Christ--or suffer decapitation! You don't want to live into this period, however, for the Anti-Christ will behead all those who refuse to take the mark of the blasphemous, anti-Christ Beast, 666, and fall down and worship him as God. Only true Christians will resist being made blasphemers of God and idolatrous worshipers of a false god, and they will be beheaded and become holy martyrs. Backsliding Christians will not get a second chance! All who take the Beast mark-number 666 in their forehead or hand will be damned, for the Word of God says that all who take the mark of the Beast, or the Anti-Christ who is the Beast, will suffer judgment and eternal damnation. This Beast and his False Prophet are coming soon to rule the world--probably very soon. The spirit of Anti-Christ has been released since the time of Christ, as the Apostle John testified in his letters. That was 2,000 years ago! How much stronger is the anti-christ spirit today! Jesus warned that many false Christs (such as the Anti-Christ claiming to be Christ and God and Messiah of the Jews) will arise, but we are not to listen when people shout and scream, "There is Christ!" or "Here is Christ!" People are saying this very thing today--as even Tom Cruise is claimed to be Christ by his fellow Scientologists! That would not be taken seriously, except that Scientology is the religion of Hollywood, and Hollywood influences the whole nation and the world powerfully for the sake of Satan, and a whole younger generation across the globe is duped, deceived, and destroyed by what spews forth from Hollywood.
Jesus came the first time to earth as a meek sacrificial lamb to die as a sacrifice for our sins, but he will not come like that again--we will see the absolutely magnificent Lion of Judah himself, enthroned in splendor on his throne Jerusalem, and ruling over the whole earth with an invincible scepter of iron. He will establish justice on earth, whether everyone likes it or not. Revelations tells us the incurably wicked will be gathered up by reaping angels and thrown into the lake of fire. The remainder will be permitted to live until they are 100 years old. If in that much time to choose the right they do not choose to repent and follow the Lord, they will die and go to the lake of fire, preceded by judgment before the Great White Throne; those who do repent and follow the Lord will live hundreds of years beyond the cut-off point of decision for Christ or against Christ. They will be blessed with life eternal.
Are you expecting a Lamb in the Second Coming? It is not going to happen! Read the Bible about the Second Coming, and think again. He will come again, but only as the royal, regal, majestic Lion of Judah. You will not hear a pathetic, weak "baa" out of his mouth, you will hear a lion's majestic and fearsome roar! His will only will be done on earth the moment he sets his royal foot down from heaven unto the Mount of Olives when He next returns.
Knowing these truths which forewarn us, let us all, Christians, look up and watch, and be vigilant and pray unceasing--as the Bible strongly advises us. Jesus (Y'shua) declares in his word in Revelation 22:12: "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolators and whoever loves and practices a lie."
And Rev. 22:20, "He who testifies to these things says, "Surely, I am coming quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"
Israel, according to a not very friendly-to-Israel liberal commentator in a Talk Radio show, who was truthful in his reportage, however, stated that Israel and her neighbors are remarkably different. How? He explained that on his visits to these countries, this struck him as the chief difference between Israel and its Arab Muslim neighboring states: Israel showcases TRACTORS in its parades, not guns, tanks, and missiles and crowds screaming bloody murder, as you commonly see in Palestinian streets (for the Palestinians, who are terrorists at heart, the more guns the better!). Contrast the tractors on parade with what you see in the streets of Damascus, Tehran, Cairo, and even Amman--they love and worship their weaponry and powers of destruction, but one day these impressive killing instruments will turn on those who take them up, and then Christ will come and beat them into plowshares (Arab tanks will be recycled and made into thousands of tractors for use on Israeli farms, after the Battle of Armegeddon!). It's going to happen. The Bible says so. Look for it. Aren't you getting excited, Christian? I certainly am!--Ed.
What are the facts? Here are a few. Israel holds the land by virtue of its heroic struggle for freedom and liberty in the midst of a despot-ruled Middle East, but should that much fought over land be taken away from them and given to the Palestianians as they demand it should, and the United Nations also demands, and even the United States is inclined to support, at least peacemeal, bit by bit? Tour guides won't tell you, or they are ignorant and don't know, that just inside the dome is an inscription, "Allah has no Son." Now that is a direct reference to Jesus Christ being the Son of God, rejecting thet truth that God indeed has a Son, who is Jesus Christ! How anyone, knowing that Islam holds this view, could say that Allah and the God of Christ are one and the same, I have no idea. I do think that person ought to have his head examined! I am afraid that our President and the whole government establishment, being weak in the area of principle and truth and integrity and Bible scholarship too, is promoting the idea, for calculated political reasons, that Allah and the God of the Christians also Judaism are the same--a blatant lie--as Allah has no son, as Muslims well know. Yes, we know very well that Allah, being a dead idol, could have no son, but the Living God certainly does--so in that sense the anti-Christ inscription inside the golden dome of the shrine on the Temple mount is telling the truth. But it is also a blasphemous statement, aimed at discrediting and refuting Christianity's belief in Christ as the Son of God. It is obscenely Christophobic, in that sense. No one objects to it--but it is there--and Moslems know it but don't tell Christians, as they want Christians to tour their shops and spend American dollars, unless they are terrorists and just want to blow them up! You see--Islam is not honest, the Moslem leaders and the people too are not being honest. They deny the Sonship of Christ, and make him just another prophet, lower than Mohammed, who is the chief prophet of this false idol, Allah, which they worship. Whether they like it or not, the Temple Mount belongs to God, not their idol and god Allah, but to the true living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and God's Son is Jesus Christ, now and forever! Praise His All-Powerful Name, which is above all names!
Veteran filmmaker Bill McKay's docudrama video series, "Against All Odds," which is being presently aired on TBN, recaptures the events and the participants in the gigantic miracles that created Israel and then enabled Israel to survive over five wars when she was being attacked by Arab armies that were overwhelming in size and number. In one of the videos, the story of Shula Cohen, a Jew who served as a spy for Israel in Lebanon, is given. This is one of the most incredible stories of heroism you can find--and it compares with any of the Biblical accounts that depict heroism and courage in the most painful circumstances. Shula's endurance defies explanation, as she was imprisoned and tortured for seven long years by the Syrian-dominated military and government in Lebanon, except that she prayed constantly for God's strength. In the lengthly court trials before a kangeroo judge, with men torturing her suspended virtually naked before the jeering and swearing courtroom of Syrian toadies and collaborators, she still refused to give one name of her fellow Jews they could use to break the entire Israeli secret service. With her information she had already warned Israel just in time of a preemptive Syrian strike from Lebanon--and this was a great service, for which she had lost her family, home, her health, and her freedom. She might have caved in, being only a woman, and not expected to stand up to a whole roomful of hostile, angry men and professional torturers. Yet Shula held firm through it all. Even when her fingernails and toenails were torn out right there in the courtroom, or when she was beaten again and again while held upside down, suspended by ropes, she is not give in and divulge any names or admit she worked for the Israel spy service as a volunteer.
If this does not get your interest up about this most amazing Esther of our times, then nothing will, I must say. She deserves ten Nobel Peace Prizes, and, while the Nobel Committee is at it, they should take back the ones wrongly given to a crew of rascals and mass murderers and demogogues that includes Jimmy Carter, Yassir Arafat, Gorbachev, Al Gore, and other unworthy characters and give them all to Shula Cohen too!
America the beautiful, the home of the free and the brave, has become "WOODSTOCK REVISITED!" IT IS A LIVING HELL AND A CARICATURE OF WHAT IT FORMERLY WAS! Remember the long, greasy, unwashed, uncombed hair, the naked couples and singles letting it all hang out and acting like they were just doing their everyday thing, the blankets and trash strewn everywhere in the churned up grass and mud, the drugs and drug-dealing, the rock music blaring day and night all throughout the rained on, soggy boggy festival, the shameless celebration of immoral sex, freedom, and revolution--and no mention of God and morality? IT IS STILL HERE, ALIVE AND WELL--AMERICA HAS BEEN TURNED INTO WOODSTOCK REVISITED!
Why do I say that? Look back at the last three or four decades. If you went through the schools in the 1960s, 1970s, you imbibed the ideals of the "Sexual Revolution" and the libertine, drug-taking Hippies communal lifestyle or you went with the truth-seeking, Bible-based, born again Jesus People, who were youth searching for meaning in their lives who turned to Christ for the ultimate Answer to life's dilemmas and problems. Unlike the Jesus People who found Christ's liberation and changed lives, the lost American youth who turned for answers at Woodstock and idolized folk singers like the liberal activist Joan Baez and Bob Dylan and a host of others like them went back to college and either came out and got work as Wall Street yuppies or stayed in the ivy halls and became secular humanist, liberal to leftist instructors and administrators of the colleges and universities, the people who shaped today's culture in large measure because they shaped the minds of millions of young people to think as they did.
Millions of these Woodstockian people also went out into Hollywood productions, full-time social activism like Green Peace, Amnesty Inernational, the ACLU, and Save the Animals radical groups, law, and government. They brought secular humanism and amorality and leftist leanings into politics, entertainment, government, education, even sports--everywhere they went and got jobs and entered professions that could influence and even control masses of people according to the radical, Woodstocking mores and secular humanist philosophy and agenda. These people educated the teachers in the public schools, who are now aggressively brainwashing the TV-zapped, half-brain-dead younger generation (just look at the consumist, completely materialistic and hedonistic youth who hang out everywhere in the streets and malls and theaters and 7-Elevens, and can you see plainly they have not had one thought of their own in the last ten years--making them perfect set-ups for brainwashing?) to think like they were taught to think--not at all critically, with consideration of the two sides of a question. Everyone who thinks differently from them is branded a bigot, a homophobe, a sexist, and all the rest of the smear words used by secular humanist, leftist propagandists and activists. For this reason, we must all go back to school, to learn if we can the truth--fortunately, not all books are revised yet (and the unpolitically correct burned), so we can still dig up and know the truth. We don't have to swallow the lies of the secular media and the government and the educational system--we can inform ourselves to know the truth and make decisions and judgments based on the truth of the Bible and the facts about life and society. For that we offer the writings of David Barton as an excellent beginning for re-educating ourselves. I was listening to Lars Larson on his Talk Radio radio program, and a man caller refered to David Barton as his source for saying that the Founding Fathers intended everyone in this country to be Christian, not any other religion. Radio Talk Show host Lars Larson, who says he is Christian, declared he thought the caller was dead wrong about that, but said he would check out David Barton. I think David Barton is correct--if the caller is right about what he said. Our Founding Fathers, the Pilgrims who were really Puritans, were not so free as Roger Williams of the Providence, Rhode Island colony. Roger Williams would have been hung if the Puritans had gotten their hands on him. They called Providence the "latrine" of the colonies. The Puritans even hung Baptists and Quakers, and at the least banished them or put their heads in stocks for hours for public censure and ridicule and a few mud pies thrown in their faces. I probably would not have liked living in their times and in their strict society. Yet these people were used mightily by God to help raise up a uniquely free representive form of government that not only permitted but protected the free exercise of religion. No one church or creed was authorized to dominate over all over beliefs or creeds or churches. We were not to have a Church of America, as England had a state Church of England that persecuted "dissenters," or anyone who believed differently from the Church of England's doctrines and ceremonies. David Barton can explain, using the founding documents, letters, and statements of our Founders, how this happened. But religious freedom was not a given here with the Puritans in charge. When their hold loosened, a new form of government, unheard of on earth, was created. The descendants of the original colonizing Puritans were also involved, but they were not allowed to impose their church on everyone else. Baptists and Quakers were at least free to worship of they pleased, without fear of Puritan interference (not to mention being put in the stocks, or dunked, or hung, if they were not simply banished to some wilderness to starve in mid-winter!). Lars Larson will no doubt find this out. Yes, the Puritans would be called bigots today, and they were, in a sense, unblushing bigots--but they were also great Bible-believing, godly men and women of faith--and founded, in large part, this country, and also the once great educational establishments such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, etc. We owe the politically incorrect Puritan "bigots", rigorously intolerant of other folks's beliefs as they certainly were, a great, unpayable debt! It is wrong and ignorant to depreciate them, or cross them off as unworthy of serious study in today's schools, as they are being treated today.
For information on their roles in the creation of America and the founding documents and the struggles that went into their fomation and ratification by the colonies--David Barton is a foremost authority:
George Washington would be so appalled and grieved over what Washington has become that he would hate the city that bears his name today! He would have nothing whatsoever to do with it! He would demand his name be taken off immediately! If you know anything about that righteous man, you know he would be so indignant over the wickedness and misgovernment of Washington society and the government that he would flee it, lifting up his shoes and shaking the dust off at the city limits!
But it is yet not too late to turn back to God's liberating truth and Gospel and repent--if we will take the last chances shining in His outstretched hand! But if we spurn them--we will stand accused some day in the Judgment of the Nations, as Sodom and Gomorrah, who id not have the Gospel and the Word of God in the Bible as we have them to guide us rightly, accuse us before the throne of the Judge, Yeshua, as being worse offenders, yet they were destroyed with fire and brimstone! This scene I just pictured is going to happen, for Christ warned us that it would--but did we take His warning seriously? Not yet! That is clear because we have not yet repented as a nation, in sackcloth and ashes, have we? I don't see any nation-wide repentance and turning back to the God of truth and purity and righteousness! We are still wallowing in our stinking sins and enjoying the filth, just like the pigs in a famer's sty! Ever smelled one? They are the most stinking operations a farm has going--bar non! That is how we, for all our soaps and deoderants and two showers a day and no end of perfumes and air fresherers, smell to God.
Oprah Winfrey is a mega-business in herself, but in the religious sense she also operates the largest church in the world, a church based on the powers of witchcraft and her expert abilities trained to manipulate millions with her charm, wit, variety of politically correct and juicy, pornographic topics, and all the other qualities she employs as a high priestess of Satan the arch-seducer.
Oprah-cloneed Dr. Phil is no better, being her perfect male counterpart, or warlock, in witches' parlance. He employs psychological techniques and masterful logic and programming to manipulate people "for their own good." Both programs earn in the hundreds of millions for Oprah and Dr. Phil (Oprah devouring the lioness's share, of course, of the spoil, amounting to, according to reports, 200 million a year, of which she shells out for publicity sake a tiny, tiny fraction for high profile charities, such as a $30 million dollar orphanage in South Africa (which has been in the news lately for a sex abuse scandal,b y the way!). If she gives anything else away, we are sure to hear about it coast to coast from her own lips, with video!). Despite the evangelicals who are fawning over them (such as Televangelist and Potter's House pastor, T.D. Jakes), these two vile charaters are tools of the devil, pure and simple. They are seducing the whole of America (pagans as well as millions of Christians) to swallow devilish filth and falsehood, not to mention their New Age Religion. Talk about the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil being seductive and deadly--their two programs provide a Weyerhaeuser forest of such trees, on which millions of their dupes are climbing daily to pluck the enticing, attractively packaged, and lethal fruit to eat. They will come to judgment, sooner or later--as the Bible promises, for no such wickedness will escape the judgment. People who become Oprah's fans will not see any problem taking the mark of the Beast, when it is offered. She is the perfect set-up for the Anti-Christ, as she will have seduced the soul of America with her witchcraft and sorcery, and then she will hand all her captive souls over to the Anti-Christ, whom she will welcome with open arms, no doubt, if she lives until his appearance on the world's scene.
"EVOLUTION'S DENIAL OF BIBLE AUTHORITY TO SPEARHEAD THE SPIRIT OF ATHEISM IN THE SEVENTIES.
On June 17, 1963, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that it would be unconstitutional for any school to authorize Bible reading and recitation of the Lord's prayer. But nothing was said against the teaching of evolution in the schools, a teaching which implies the Genesis record of creation to be a myth, while claiming that man sprang from the brute beast. This rank hoax, the religion of atheists and infidels is being taught in the schools and colleges. Parents who believe the Bible should find out if the Christian college or public school to which they send their children uses these textbooks. Such teaching can rob their children's faith in God." (page 27)
In the pro-choice video, a baby's hand, a leg, and other parts were pulled from the baby by the abortion "doctor" and then disposed of in a receptacle. Then, suddenly, the mother's womb and birth canal discharged their entire contents, and the mutilated corpse of the baby and blood and water gushed out all at once. Everyone who contemplates abortion ought to see this atrocity being performed--for this is the reality that Planned Parenthood does not want anyone to see--lest the victims change their minds before it is too late for Planned Parenthood to make money off them.
His income was listed as compared with the incomes of other major televangelists. You can find that interesting too, as I did, but it is his two Rolex watches that I find rather intriguing. Why does he need such expensive watches. one costs in the neighborhood of 23k. Imagine wearing that much money on your wrist--and you bump it against the car door or something! Do you have to carry insurance for it--costing you hundreds no doubt a year?--which would be
chicken feed to the likes of Murdoch. I never saw a Rolex in my life, until I came across this picture just yesterday--so now I know what they look like. I do hope Mr. Murdoch enjoys his Rolexes, jet, mansion, bus, luxury cars, and whatever else he has. They may be all he ever will have, as rewards. I hope not, but that is my best guess--there won't be much of anything for him in the next life, even if he is saved and
escapes hell--since he's got it all now, one way or another.
Doing my own investigation on a televangelist whose fixation on money and wealth building and his continual appeals for contributions bothered me, I went to internet sources and found more than
enough information to make me wonder how Mike Murdoch can get away with his extravagant lifestyle, spending millions on his mansion, property, vehicles, jet, and
personal adornments such as Rolex watches, and still be allowed to solicit even more millions via such handy networks as TBN and DAYSTAR. How discerning are the Crouches and the Lambs anyway, when Murdoch (a latter-day Elmer Gantry) can use them and their networks reaching millions of people across the globe to garner the pension and social security check money from thousands of old widows and grandmothers and poor single moms and other such trusting souls?

How can I say that? Replacement Theology, which unbibically claims that all God's Covenant and promises were transferred to the Church due to the falling away and idolatry of the Jews, is flat wrong, according to the Bible. For instance, the whole book of Hosea is pointless, if God gives up on a harlot-Israel! Why put such an account of God's unfailing love for the wayward wife (Israel) if God really isn't like that?
God cannot change himself or lie, though man lies and changes all the time! You see this as one generation dies and another takes its place--there are going to be changes, not all good, but one thing is sure, they will not be identical. Change is endemic in man, but never occurs in God. To say that God would not fulfil his promises is to call God a liar and to make oneself a liar and blasphemer at the same time! I wouldn't do that if I were you! It is a risky thing to touch and curse the apple of God's eye, which the scripture says is the Jews, the Chosen People, saved or yet unsaved.
Go to Lamb and Lion Ministries on the Web and order it today. We read our copy cover to cover, in just two brief sessions, it was all so riveting.
Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer, Santa Klaus, Snow Flakes, a Tree, and like fluff and garbage--hardly good substitutes for the real reason for Christmas being celebrated here and the world over (have you seen the new stamps--Rudolph, Snow Flakes, etc., etc., are back, good grief!). My suspicion was correct! They were turned demented/secular humanist in the U.S. Postal Department! They used to be trying to be "pancultural," to use their phrase, but now they are serving "Diversity," "Multiculturalism," "Tolerance," and other secular humanist gods. This latest stamp proves it. UGH! A THOUSAND TIMES UGH! (That is the nicest way I can put my visceral response. I bought this one stamp for an example to show you the utter folly into which the U.S. Postal Department has lately descended, but as soon as it is copied for showing here, it goes in the waste basket where it belongs:
Had a very shiny nose!
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows!
All of the other reindeer,
Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph,
Join in any reindeer games.
Then one frosty Christmas night,
Santa came to town.
"Rudolph, with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"
Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
"Rudolph, the Red- Nosed Reindeer,
You'll go down in history!"
This seemingly silly tune which has been sung countless times by children at Christmastime (and even by the Lawrence Welk singers on his special Christmas pageants on TV) has a core story that speaks of Christ--if you can pick out literary themes. As I already pointed out for you, there is the comparison of Rudoph and Christ in that both were rejected by their peers and society. (2) Both were ridiculed, laughed at, and called names.
(3)Both were shut out by their society (as Jesus, from Nazareth, an uncouth, mixed Jewish and Gentile region, was shunned and denigrated by the Jews of Jerusalem--"Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" was a common proverb, recited even by Nathaniel when he was called by his brother to go and see Jesus).
(4) Santa, a father figure standing for the Heavenly Father, let us say, overlooked the public's low opinion and chose Rudolph, elevating him to the highest position, just as the Father ordained Jesus, a carpenter's step-son, to become Savior and Lord over the whole world. Furthermore, there is a dark aspect, to elevation, for Rudolph was not elevated to a Cross as Christ was, but it needs be mentioned here, because without that happening, there would be no rejoicing for Christians whatsoever, for on the Cross, Jesus broke the powers of sin, Death, and the Devil enslaving us. It looked like defeat of Jesus, for he died on the Cross, but it was actually the most tremendous victory, transforming everything for us.
(5) The reindeer somehow forgot all they had done to drag Rudolph down with their persecution, shunning, ridiculing, and laughing--as they now rejoiced in Rudolph's elevation to first rank over them by Santa as head raindeer. Christians, too, could put aside their former rejection, their former state of being enemies of God and slaves to Satan, as they rejoice in the victory of Christ on the Cross! We are continually rejoicing in the Lord's victory for our sake! "Glee" should be ours, just as it was the raindeer's.
(6) The famous red nose, shining brightly, that brought him to Santa's attention and was the primary cause of Rudolph's appointment and exaltation? Red is the color of Christ's shed blood, and it shines brightly even today, two thousand years after the crucifixion of Christ. The blood of Christ still has the power to save and transform lives and also drive out the Devil and his demons from our lives.
(7)Rudolph forgave this persecutors and enemies, his fellow reindeer, forgave them everything, just as Jesus forgive us all our sins and opposition against him. And he did not hold it against us later--the slate is wiped completely clean, by the Blood of Jesus. In the same way there is no mention of any resentment or revenge or bitterness on the part of Rudolph toward his fellow reindeer. They are all happy for him, so they must have accepted his total forgiveness of them.
"What can wash away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Oh! Precious is the flow,
That makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!"
Whatever Wal-Mart used to be, it is not now--it has become a globalist monster with no morals, and it is anti-American and anti-Christian--it will do anything to appease the homosexual lobby and the secular humanist elites in order to reap a proft. it is, in a nutshell, a Beliah, a monster from hell, which is just now showing its true colors.
For that reason Global Warming caused by human carbon emissions is NOT scientific fact, OR ANYTHING BASED ON VERIFIABLE SCIENCE. Scientists, true scientists, deny the validity of Al Gore's assertions. Over 19,000 genuine scientists (not Al Gore green party clones and Hollywood celebs without any education to speak of) have signed a letter in Oregon stating this, but it is ignored by the Global Warming-supporting media, of course. Yet the whole secular humanist world along with Hollywood (and even some misinformed evangelicals!) is getting on the bandwagon of eco-crazies led by chief Global Warming guru, Al Gore. Millions will suffer terribly if they carry out their programs to reduce emissions, at the cost of the poorest of the nations and even setting our own country's economy back to that of a Third World nation's--would that help if China and India, the world's biggest and worst polluting economies continue to operate as they are without one word against them by Al Gore and his crowd? Why should America and a host of poor countries suffer for his obsessiond? America is not the problem--we are the cleanest, have the cleanest factories and businesses in the world--and India's and China's and other such developing nations, not to mention former Soviet Union countries, have the worst record of polluting industries, so why is Al Gore making us out to be the monster pollutor on the planet? It is a political agenda he is covering up with this environmental red herring. LET US PRAY THAT THIS HOAX BE EXPOSED FOR WHAT IT TRULY IS!
A generation of American youth raised on explicit sex and violent TV and violent films will love and enjoy it, and want more of the same, only more violent and bloody and full of nudity if possible. What is the value of this for English literature? The blood and guts is not the main reason for the epic--for it was written by a Christian, who was writing at the time when Britain was turning to Christ. Much pagan culture still existed, but it was defeated by the Cross of Christ, and so you see pagan culture in Beowulf, but also Christian themes shining unmistakably amidst the roaring hubbub of the heroes in the mead-halls and in their various battles. The devil is potrayed as Grendel and her mother, monsters that the hero Beowulf must overcome--just as every Christian must resist and overcome the Devil and sin in his life. There is no question in the epic (if not the film, which I have not seen) that gratuitous violence for its own sake is not celebrated (though it is depicted realistically and truthfully in the epic) but, instead, the victorious stand of the Christian hero or warrior against the forces of darkness and evil, personified by the monster she-devil, Grendel, and her equally monstrous mother. This ancient epic composed by a Christian minstrel-poet or a number of them depicts the struggle of good (the Gospel, the Cross, the truth of Christ) against the forces of evil (the Devil, the old pagan, polytheistic religion, the darkness and superstition of the German tribes. Beowulf, the epic, is magnificent, and compares to the Lord of the Rings trilogy by T.R.R. Tolkien, which had the same theme of good struggling with evil.
It is always good to go back to the original, to the source, to the written epic, and not just depend on Hollywood's remake or rewrite of the epic to tell us what it really is. Read Beowulf, if you have not yet been exposed to it, before going to the film, so you have some objectivity and appreciation for the Christian themes that are truly in the original, whatever Hollywood has made of it. Why should we be ignorant and brainwashed by Hollywood? We can inform ourselves and know the truth. The truth sets us free, and it can be entertaining too, just as Beowulf in the original is entertaining to English students reading it. I don't need Steven Spielberg's script writers and special effects crews to bring Beowulf alive in my imagination. I have my own imagination, which they can seldom exceed or surprass, so I don't need them. Everyone has an imagination, but we have to use it, not just be consumers who are fed the products of other people's imaginations and scripts. The value to using our own imaginations is that we ourselves envison the things the writer of Beowulf recorded from his own time, far in the past, for our knowledge and enjoyment and instruction and also our inspiration. We connect with that ancient minstrel in a real way when we approach his work in this way--we have no middle man in the way--we get a direct link--and this makes all the difference between being an almost brain-dead consumerist or a thinking, feeling, imagining human being who is enlarged, not shrunk, as he or she proceeds through life.
And what are their "jobs?" Tearing down the moral and constitutional fabric of our nation? That is what so many are doing--and she was chief among them when she sat for years on the bench at the Supreme Court, swinging the court's decision to the Leftist agenda for America! She is the swing vote that made the Supreme Court ruling that struck down the Texas anti-sodomy law! Texas is her home state, but she hated the very idea that Texas could, as a state, take a stand against a sin the Bible condemns. Oh, no! Texas must not "legislate morality," so she voted to strike down a law the people of Texas thought right and proper and according to God's law, not man's. She obviously prefers man's law, which for her is secular humanist law--devoid of the Ten Commandments and Christian morality.
3. Anti-Americanism spokesman and Nobel laureate Jimmy Carter. He grins ear to ear and continues to act up royally for the Devil's kingdom as one of Satan's chief emissaries, and apparently cannot learn from his absolutely tremendous blunders, one of which while he was president created the malevolently Islamic, cleric dictatorship of Iran (YES, IRAN!) we now have breathing down all our necks as well as Israel's! Europe too, which he calls the Middle Satan, is also on his hit list, when he gets his nukes--so they know that eventually they will have to deal with him--but are delaying and delaying, hoping they can talk him out of any confrontation by resorting to the auspices of the United Nations, a truly hopeless organization that will save them from nothing!
4. Nancy Pelosi, U.S. Speaker of the House (Yellow-striped Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer too, and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid for their cutting funds to U.S. troops in Iraq even for help at Christmas, and Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire who is persecuting Christians and trying to punish pharmacists who refuse to dispense the "morning after" abortion drug, Plan B, refusing them their freedom of conscience and religion!). This big-toothed she-wolf in grandmother's clothes has perpetrated so many dunciads and outrages in her capacity as Speaker that it is hard to single out the most egregrious. What has she done that is creditable and worth the fortune she is being paid? I cannot think of a single thing! Can you? Where is her husband? Why can't he act as a restraint to her secular humanist madness? She ignored the warning of a whole panel of top Washington policy analysts and former diplomats and Secretaries of State just recently in supporting a measure in the House condemning Turkey for genocide against the Armenians in 1915-1918, largely because they deemed it highly untimely, due to the fact we desperately need Turkey's air space to fly supplies to our soldiers in Iraq, and this measure may well force an outraged Turkey too stop all such flights. Not only that, Turkey has threatened to go and fight the Kurds again in northern Iraq in order to stamp out the Kurdish terrorist organization causing trouble across the Turkish-Iraqi border. If Turkey follows through with her threat, all the U.S. has sacrificed in U.S. lives and treasure, to achieve freedom in Iraq for the Iraqis and help them build up a democratic government along with a viable economy and infrastructure, will be thrown away! Iraq will be turned into a shambles, with the terrorists taking full charge and creating complete chaos. Thank you, Nancy Pelosi--for single-handedly, you, not Saddam Hussain, not Al-Quaida, not Iran's operatives in Iraq, could well defeat the U.S.!
Jesus Christ first, and all the rest will fall into line.
He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people.
"Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."
