He reads me when we meet;
Today he reads me in my home.
Tomorrow in the street.
He may be relative or friend,
He may be strange to me;
He may not even know my name,
Yet, he is reading ME.
Now I had brought home from my post office box just before this a thank you letter from New Tribes Mission director, Larry Brown, and Mother now began reading it out loud:
"Has this ever happened to you? You present your need to the Lord...and he doesn't answer the way you expected Him to answer. Freddo, a relatively new believer among the Tagbanwa people of the Philippines, needed finances to pay for his daughter's schooling. As he prepared to go fishing, he prayed, "God, make this the biggest catch ever!" God's answer? Freddo's boat motor wouldn't start. His fellow villagers all laughed at him as they zoomed by in their motorized boats. With a heavy heart, he paddled out to sea, trying not to doubt, hanging on to the thought, "God doesn't need a motor to answer prayer."
That night he came back with the largest catch of all the fishermen. He had the largest catch for the next three nights as well! He caught enough fish to pay for his daughter's schooling and more.
When I heard this story, the thought came to me, "I'm glad Freddo kept paddling, even in the midst of his disappointment and doubt. If he hadn't, he would have missed out on much more than the finances for his daughter's schooling!" Thank you for giving to God through this ministry (my mom and I had given to our missionary relatives for an wedding anniversary of 41 years, a dollar for each year). Whatever your situation, let's trust the Lord together and keep paddling! Let's get some more "fish"!--Larry Brown. Just when Mother (to turn 100 years of age in Sept. 13!) finished reading, the mail man arrived, and she hurried out excitedly. I didn't know why, nor did she. But she handed me a power company bill, I thought, and I opened it without much interest. But then I saw it was a check for $1,033.22, not a the expected statement or bill. Mom was being repaid due to some company program, as Mom because of her age and fixed income is on some assisted energy use program for the elderly. The major use months, though, must be paid, regardless. I have paid the power bill for a couple years, and never once have they sent any money back! This was not man's doing, it was truly God's. What a magnificent God (Jehovah Jirah, Our Provider) we serve! He isn't answering us according to our giving, though he takes note of giving nevertheless for His work. It does not work as the prosperity gospel preachers claim. If that were true, mother, probably the most giving person on earth, would be a millionairess many times over!!! Therefore, we don't give to get, like some folks do--and God knows that and now has given us abundantly beyond what we had given (only $41). We had given other amounts before this, but never have we received back from God so much in one lump sum! And we didn't have it coming either! Mother immediately pledged half of it to God's work. This is typical of her. She understands what gratitude is all about. She also understands how God operates with his blessings, as she fully understands that God intends us to be channel of His provision and grace, not a safety deposit box to keep it selfishly locked up!
Late June, God's grace was poured out on me, as I received a fully restored, absolutely beautiful 2001 Ford Escape, without paying a dollar for it! It is for God's work, not my selfish enjoyment, though I am enjoying this fully loaded vehicle. It is all restored, with new brakes, new transmission, new tires, and is leather in the interior, and has AC and a wonderful 7 CD player, and so on and on. What a beauty! I didn't actually need all this car, but God gives us bountifully, as a true king would, not holding back additional blessings to "keep us in our place" or in need.
God is good, very giving, indeed, but it is by God's grace, not by what I have done. Like grace, the car was donated free to me by a Christian friend working in a Middle East war zone, and I regard it as a blessing but also an instrument for God's use. Already it has served as a testimony of God's special provision to His children. At the bank the tellers came to the window and remarked about my new car, and I told them it was the Lord's gift, and I hadn't paid a dollar, not even for the sales tax, which was paid for me. They hadn't ever heard that, of course. At another bank the same thing happened. So now I am driving a real, living testimony, as I am not good at giving one "cold" ordinarily. But this miracle on wheels makes it very easy to testify about the Lord, I am finding. And nobody disagrees with me either, as they can see the miracle with their own eyes, having seen my last 18 year old For Tempo, which was no comparison with this superb Ford!

This is what your teachers didn't and wouldn't teach you! Our secular humanist educational system does not want you to know these basic facts. Colonial America is shown you in detail, and the founders' intentions and dreams for us, their incredible sacrifices, their reasons for their founding America on the basis of a God-given Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Yes, God-given! Man wrote the words, yes, but the wisdom in these charters is beyond man's, clearly showing that God gave these treasures to us, to insure our freedom and protect our God-given, inalienable rights. We must know the difference 'tween rights and freedoms--an essential thing to know. Learn the difference in this book. I never knew there was a distinction before, but there is. The very things God gave us, Obama and crew are attempting to throw away. They do not want our Constitution reining them in, protecting us and our freedoms and Rights against them and their authoritarian regime and socialistic agenda. They are getting their way chiefly through deception and ignorance and their Congressional tactic of rush-and-ram-it-through-without-even-reading-the-legislative-bills. We must find out what our Colonial founders and the Colonial charters were all about, else we lose the foundation for our Nation, and all our freedoms too. This is the hour for such a book! Don't miss it. For your copy, order it from David Pett:
We think persecution and martyrdom exist in other countries but not the U.S. We could not be more hoodwinked (hoodwinking is a process of controlling a chicken and its behavior by covering a chicken's head so that it looks blindly ahead, and cannot see what is happening on either side of the chicken). We are controlled in the same way by the U.S. liberal media. Sudan was virtually ignored by our media the whole time it was taking place--for about twenty years at least. Only lately has Amnesty International and the other watchdogs of human rights noticed the mass killings and enslavements and criticised the Government in Khartoum, and some demonstrations have also lately occurred. Jimmy Carter, a Johnny-come-lately Liberal, also got in the act not long ago, but soon bowed out, when he ran into the stone wall of Khartoum's radical Muslim Arab despots. It is increasingly the case here as well, we are being invaded by traffikers in human slaves. Seattle and Portland are two of the cities in my own Pacific Northwest that are entries for slaves, brought in and worked without pay and abused. This is what can be expected if highly liberal states such as these, which have created the social breakdown after cheapening the value of human life by their abortion policies and teaching of Darwinism in the public schools. We have increasing numbers of slaves in this country being converted into a socialistic, leftist nation with ever-enlarging enclaves of Islam run by Shari law and virtually free of our national laws and Constitution and Bill of Rights and Amendments supposedly protecting freedom and liberty for every one in the country. At the rate we are going, freedom is a lost cause in America. Welcome, Islam and Sharia law! Welcome, Endemic, toxic Secularism and Humanism! Welcome, godless atheism and the extirpation of Christianity in the land of the once free and the once brave!
Here is a red flag for you! In my own Washington State, Faith and Freedom Foundation has just reported that a recent referendum signature drive in a conservative cause has had to be protected with a court's restraining order, lest the aggressive Liberal activists from in-state and out-of-state get the lists of the signatories and then "contact" them. We know what happened in California recently after the campaigns of Christians and conservatives and moral people for the re-establishment of the will of the people concerning traditional marriage. Prop 8 was at the heart of the controversy, between these people and the activist, leftist, homosexual forces. The people voting for righteousness and for the sanctified union of one man with one woman were consequently vilified and then even persecuted. People lost their jobs, or forced into resignation, harassed at their homes, because they came out in support of traditional marriage. We face the same thing here, as this is a nation-wide pogrom by the Left that does not give us Christians the Constitutional option to vote our consciences. The Left has shown continually they could care less about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If we do not bend to their wicked, anti-democratic, unconstitutional agendas, they actively persecute us now, branding us bigots, homophobes, anti-socials, hateful, absurd, retrogressive. This is the America they have created, and they have untold millions donated by radical liberal billionaires such as that high-finance thug, George Soros, and also heaps of our tax monies as well to pay their gangs of thugs to harass and threaten Christians, conservatives, and traditionalists who want American's core values preserved and practiced for the sake of children and families.
Marginalized, demonized, vilified in the liberal press (what media is not liberal today, except that of conservative Talk Radio?), Christians, traditionalists (such as Bill O'Reilly of the Factor on the Fox Channel, Bill Bennett, Michael Savage, Lars Larson, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Michael Medved, Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and many others of equally high stature), conservatives and evangelicals, are now high on the target list of radical activists. These rabid activists of the Left see violence (not just punishing legislative bills and litigation) as legitimate means to silence the opposition from freedom-loving Americans once and for all, so that their radical leftist views are the only ones being expressed. Hate Crime legislative and bills, which Obama wants to see passed during his reign, will criminalize Christians and these conservative and traditionalist individuals and groups. Churches will be denied tax exemption as non-profit organizations, driven into bankruptcy if they so much as express that homosexuality is wrong and that the Bible teaches it is a sin. As is being done already in Canada and Europe (take secularist-ruled Sweden for example), pastors will be fined and even imprisoned under such laws, draconian laws that Sen. Edward Kennedy, who just received the Congressional Medal of Honor from Obama, championed for many years and cunningly tried to slip into public law, tacked onto a bill of with an entirely different subject. What a crafty, old fox he turned out to be! He certainly destroyed any last Kennedy mystique I had from the 1960s.
Chaplains have been forced to resign, rather than submit to leftist regulations inserted into the regulations that all must adher to in the miitary. Supreme Court advocate, Jay Sekulow, has championed the conservatives' fight in Congress against such regulations, but has not succeeded in having them overturned. Admiral Mike Mullen, who is the premier military leader under Obama, has enforced these Unconstitutional regulations, stating that the military would not push any religion. That simply isn't true, as it is pushing Islam, Hinduism, and Satanism. Mike Mullen's language would surprise George Washington! He would be not just surprised, but outraged. Imagine what George Washington, who led his army in prayer repeatedly on the eve of crucial battles, would say to Mike Mullen. Mike Mullen ought to be re-educated with the history of the America's founding and read the Founding Fathers' own views on this. He would be forced to acknowledge he is dead wrong and has opposed our Constitutional freedoms of religion. Of course, freedom is abridged in the military necessarily to an extent, but where that freedom is abridged in the Chaplaincy, he has no warrant whatsoever to justify it on the grounds of "separation of church and state." Imagine, no mention of Jesus' Name by Christian chaplains! It is all right with him that Allah or Satan or Krishna is named, however. What hypocrisy! He ought to resign, if he opposes our cherished freedoms, which Washington would never do, since he continually sought the aid of the Almighty in the field of war for American freedom and independence. Shame on Mike Mullen! He does the U.S. military a grave injustice by taking such a stand. If he cannot do what is right, he should not be at the head of our military forces. Can he plead ignorance? I doubt it. I think he is playing the shameful game of political expedience, which demands that he toe the leftist line or be forced out of his high position into an early retirement. Well, let the Admiral go to an early retirement. He cannot claim that our military was ever meant by our Founders and Framers of the Constitution to be divorced from the Christian faith, to the extent that a Christian Chaplain must not name "Jesus" in his prayers, whereas it is permitted a Moslem Chaplain to name "Allah" with complete freedom, and a Hindu to name his own god, or gods. This is outright persecution of Christians, it is not separation of church and state at all. It is clearly the favoring of Islam and Hinduism and even Satanism (for there are Satanist chaplains funded by our tax dollars) under the sanction of leftist, godless, anti-Christian army regulations that have been written specifically into military law to target and eradicate the Name of Christ and the ministry of Christian chaplains. Woe to our military, now that the likes of Mike Mullen is at the head, and these are the regulations and the anti-Christian agenda of the Left that he supports! They are a dark blot on our history and our nation.
Christian evangelists are now being murdered in our streets today. I know a lady who had a grandson who was murdered when preaching Christ to the gangs of Los Angeles, the City of Devils, not angels. Someone has to do it! Death threats are the normal thing for Bible-based, deliverance-preaching pastors whose churches are located in gang-ridden sections of our major cities. But we do not have to contend with death threats and actual killings by gangs, there is the increasing persecution of Christians by Moslems. The radical Muslim jehadists training right on our own soil for terrorist strikes within our own country are operating in dozens of known camps across the country. My own state has them, which the leftist and secularist liberals in the state legislature and in Congress representing my state care nothing about. I wrote to them about it, but not one response from our State's representatives at the State Legislature or from Congress. They are more concerned with demonizing Christians and evangelicals by calling us "domestic terrorists". Can you imagine Pentecostals strapping bombs to their backs or tummies and then blowing up in public venues? Can you imagine any evangelical doing that? Hardly! Yet we are considered a greater threat than Muslim terrorists by our own Homeland Security Department! Infected and blinded with liberalism, the Government in Washington and the secularist state governments refuse to recognize that we face a real threat in our own front yards from Islamic jehadist training camps, not just sleeper cells awaiting a call from Al Qaida or Tehran or Gaza or Pakistan. How many will be killed or are being killed today in the various massacres and shootings in malls and schools and in other public places by radical Moslems? The press is loath to report that any Muslim would do such a thing, and suppresses the facts in the shootings, even the ethnicity of the criminal. If ever a Christian commits a crime, that is the first thing reported, it was a Christian who did it. This is their policy from years back, to blacken us all with the same tar brush. This situation will only accelerate and worsen, as the secularists give the terrorists in our midst the wink while they ride shotgun against conservatives, traditionalists, and evangelicals with hate crime legislation and watchdog law enforcement agencies alerted by Homeland Security by its recent outrage, the "Assessment of Domestic Terrorist Threats."
Yes, we are in a new, not very promising America, one in which we Christians are the target of large, powerful, well-armed, state-financed, hostile enemies in the Leftist camp, and without Christ we mightt turn paranoid and run and hide, if we could. But with Christ, we can face this boasting, swaggering, uncircumcised Philistine giant of Goliah, Secular-Humanism in all its hideous shapes and forms. We win in the end, though we know from Scripture that many will continue to be martyred as they stand for the Word of God and the Gospel. Millions may yet die in America, and they will be primarily Christians.
A final anecdote. A friend who resides in Arizona with his wife in a "snow bird" trailer and motor home community, wrote that at his church a Christian family had invited in a Moslem youth, given him hospitality in the bosum of a loving Christian family, then when he departed for his home country, guess what his response was: he said he would return and kill them first, as that would be a kindness compared to what his fellow Moslems would do to them when they take over America! Does this speak to you what we face? Where is the moderate Islam we hear so much about? Wake up, fellow Americans! We are the targets of both radical Islam and radical secularism and liberalism. Not far off, in Iraq or Pakistan, but right here, in our homes! Sharing our neighborhoods with terrorists of the kamikaze squads of Al Qaida and Hezbollah and the other terrorist groups joined with them in the war against the West and American freedom, we cannot hope to escape them. Islam and home-grown Secularism have joined forces and seek to wipe us Christians, traditionalists, and conservatives off the face of the map. We are in a war on at least two major fronts, in a struggle for our lives and the children's future. Who will rule, who will enslave the children of America and indoctrinate them--Islam or Radical Secularist-Humanism? They have joined forces to subjugate us at present, but later they will fight to the death against each other over the smouldering remains of a once free and Christian nation. Before that can happen, the terrorists embedded in our society may well unleash their nuclear suitcase bombs forwarded to them from Tehran so that there is really nothing for Islam to inherit. Radical Muslims don't care. They don't care how many Muslims they have to kill to exterminate free and Christian America--they say they are willing to pay that price. The tyrants of Iran and their Hezbollah puppets in Lebanon declare that day after day, don't they? The Devil is determined to destroy a once Christian America, to make sure it never rises again, so that he can have his full way with Israel to eradicate both God's nation and the Jews world-wide.
May we repent of our sins, and may we turn from our wicked ways, as we pray and seek God's mercy and deliverance from all our terrible foes!
"When words fail, music speaks."--Hans Christian Anderson, world-renowned Danish folk and children's story teller.
Here is yet another wonderful, effective way: showing up to pray outside city halls, or wherever the local patriots meet in city, town, or community. "Awakening America," founded in godly response to 9/ll, is a means by which you and I can make a real difference, right where we live! On Sept. 11, 12-1:00 pm, groups across the America in thousands of towns and cities and communities will meet at City Hall or elswhere and pray for America's turn-around. To find where to meet and the time, go to:
What is God's attitude toward the evil rulers and their governments. First, God hates them! He abhors them, he detests them, and he ultimately will destroy them if they continue without repentance and change. He always stands on the side of the oppressed and the poor and the orphaned and the widow, not on the side of the unjust and wicked and corrupt government and its representatives. Yes, yes, yes, God loves sinners and his mercy prevails over his judgement, over and over, but not forever! He doesn't love these sinners so much he will never judge and punish their sinful deeds! Wicked rulers do not get a free pass, just because they are rulers. He is a just God. He will not always forebear, he will come down for the sake of the oppressed and do away with the wicked leadership. So too with America, we can expect God to come to an end of his merciful restraint, hoping the erring will repent of abandoning him, repent of their willful sins, and return to him. If not, there will be hell and hellfire to pay!
A lot of evangelicals sit back in their padded pews in air conditioned sanctuaries (after getting out of well-padded seats in their cars, air conditioned too, and waddling a few steps into the church to sit down immediately), acknowledge the sins of their nation and their leaders, but expect mercy to cover over the stinking dung heap and make it better bye and bye, if they just pray for their leaders some nice sweet prayers and not get angry and upset over what they are doing to destroy everything godly in American society. They could not be more mistaken! That is not a godly position to take. It is suicidal at best, and anti-Christian the worst. They are dupes, doing exactly what God's sworn enemies want them to be--passive fools, who out of religious scrupulousness refuse to stand up in any issue of right vs. wrong and truth vs. falshood and morality vs. immorality, quoting scriptures to support their passivity in a time of national peril we have not seen since the Revolution. We have a virtual forerunner of the Anti-Christ in the Oval Office, acting as President of the United States, doing all he and his party can to blaspheme God and tear down every godly foundation and pillar of our country and its government and liberty, while these passive fools go tut-tut and hope mercy will eventually get these enemies of Christ to see the light and stop doing all those bad things they are doing! It will never happen, folks! The Enemy does not ever go passive and voluntarily retire from the war--he fights to the bitter end! He fights day and night, he never quits, unless he is actively confronted and actively defeated! How is this scriptural? Heard of the Faith Chapter, Chapter 11 of Hebrews? It describes, beginning to end, all those who were not passive fools and compromisers but active challengers of evil in Bible times. They are given us by God and the Bible to be our examples? How about following THEM, Rick Warren? You are only making yourself and your followers at your church a passive fool and a dupe if you follow the examples concocted by your own philosophy of positivism and mercy trumping justice. You have saddled evangelicals with defeatism, not Christian activism. The Founding Fathers of our Nation would have run you out of town with the Loyalists that supported the corrupt and tyrannical King George. They had prayed and prayed, but there came a time when righteous men had to take up arms against the wicked ruler who was usurping all their cherished freedoms and intending to enslave them. So they did! They were real men, and the women were real women. They had backbones. They had justice burning in their hearts, not passivity eating them like dry rot, until there is nothing but a dry husk of a human being that any tyrant can topple with a mere flick of his finger!
Just a couple verses from Chapter 11:
"And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jepthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens."--Verses 33-34.
We would never had a brave and free United States of America if people had followed Rick Warren and all those who compromise with evil, in the vain hopes that mercy will turn the hearts of wicked men to quit doing evil and do good. Sweetness and light do not come from that kind of response. The true response is active in God, not passive in the Devil. The Bible says so! There you have it. Take it or, with peril and destruction as the direct consequence, leave it.
These scriptures remind me that we can resist evil actively in a godly way, and through faith subdue the kingdoms of evil leaders such as Barack Hussain Obama, and anyone else like him, and moreover put to flight the armies of aliens (such as attaching hosts of Obama's government agencies, and the Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, Muslims, and anyone else who attacks us to destroy our free nation). If we did not have Obama's words, acts, and written agendas, we would not know what he is, but we do have such things, and they testify clearly, inequivocately, unarguably, that he is a wicked leader, fully intent to defy God and Christ and reduce this nation to a godless humanist hellhole. It is time to resist! It is time to keep praying too, for mercy, but we must resist! We cannot lie down down as passive fools and dupes and hope for a better day, which will never come if we do that. Those who knew of the pack ice and bergs and who still went to bed on the night of the fatal collison of the Titanic and the killer berg, they were passive fools and dupes, and they perished horribly by choice. Are you perishing horribly by choice, fellow Christian? Millions of you Christian are! You also voted for a forerunner of the anti-Christ, if what he says and does and intends to do are proof enough to identify him as that, and they certainly are proof enough. God help you and us, but God help America's innocent children! Only God can help us now, if we will only stand with Him against the evil that has overtaken America from the topmost levels.
We cannot blame the liberals for this entirely. It has to do with attitude among the evangelicals as well, which is generally poor nowadays concerning our nation. This attitude is best characterized by apathy and indifference--but with pseudo-religious overtones. People who ordinarly don't care a fig about holiness, suddenly take on scruples about mixing the holy with the unholy when it comes to politics. The same type used to inveigh against Hollywood, going to movies, wearing makeup, dancing, etc. Legalism was equated in their theology and minds as holiness. It is the farthest thing from holiness, as a matter of fact. The result of this attitude is that evangelicals withdrew from Hollywood, handed it over to the Devil to be his primary instrument to seduce and corrupt the youth of America, and evangelicals sat in their pews, congratulating themselves on their holiness! How incredibly stupid, but tragic! They lost the youth of America to Hollywood. Their own children fled their "holy homes" and plunged into the worst sins they could find in the outer world. The schools also helped a great deal too to capture the youth and warp their minds and lead them off into secular humanism's hellholes. Since Christian educators withdrew and did not run "secular schools" anymore, the world's philosophers stepped into the vacuum and spun their own godless and socialistic views out into textbooks and also directed teachers' training at college level. John Dewey was one of the foremost of these early on in the 20th century. Thanks to them, we fast lost our Christian education in the public schools and they were profoundly secularized, but not only that, they were turned into indoctrination camps, grilling students in the ideas that would run completely contrary to the Christian world-view, the Ten Commandments, and even the Bill of Rights eventually (as they incalculated socialism into the students).
The red herring of the evil of state church has been used by liberal, secularizing forces in America to stamp out all Christianity in the public schools. We never had a state church in America! There has never been a Church of the United States! Yet the ACLU and other such activist liberal groups have litigated one case after another in schools and even in towns and cities and courthouses against the display of crosses, the Ten Commandments, nativity scenes, references to Jesus by baccalaureate speakers, prayer before football games, etc. They merely wave the red herring of state churchism, citing the "Doctrine of the Separation of Church and State" and Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists, and a whole body of case law in favor of their falsehood has grown up, on which they have gained the authority to sweep Christianity clean out of the public schools. What do they have in its absence? Secular Humanism, which the U.S. Congress itself cited is a religion. So we have the religion of Secular Humanism, which is opposed to Christianity, supplanting what the Founding Fathers intended. And the Constitution is supposed to warrant this outrage, when the Constitution does no such thing. The Bill of Rights is entirely overlooked, since now it is routinely bypassed, and religion (Christian religion) is outlawed in the public schools, whereas the religion of Secular Humanism is fully accepted and is dominate in the entire curriculum. It is completely ignored by the educators and the judiciary that our Founding Fathers never approved of the idea that church should be separated from state. Quite the contrary! They approved of the union of church and state in many ways, particularly in education. The only thing they disapproved of, and did everything they could think of to prevent, was the creation of a State Church of America. Christian religion was allowed to enjoyed full freedom in society and its institutions, including government, the schools, and the military, but it was not to be enforced by a State Church, as a State Church would, employing the authority of the state law enforcement agencies. Many of them had fled from England and other countries where state churches operated, denying them freedom of conscience and even life and liberty. They did not want Europe's religious system here in America. They still wanted Christian religion, but not that old oppressive system. Congress, they wrote into the Bill of Rights, must make no laws abridging the freedom of religion (meaning the Christian religion). The Christian religion must also, they believed, enjoy freedom of conscience, and this they gave to others, including the Jews. Jews, or Hindus, or other faiths, were not forced to convert to Christianity. They too enjoyed freedom of conscience. This was founded as a Christian country, but with this freedom extended to all, every Jew was safe, every Hindu was safe, every Buddhist was safe, from persecution by a State Church armed with the powers of the law enforcement agencies. This kind of society was new in the world, and still is! But we are rapidly losing it, as socialism and secular humanism are clamping down and abridging our cherished and essential freedom of religion and freedom of conscience. Only the secularist-humanist religion is sanctioned by government and by judicial decree. Christian belief is condemned and hunted and driven out of the public sphere. We are getting the State Church of America that our Founding Fathers most feared and hated. It is the Secular Humanist Church of America, which is increasingly our State Church!
History is being repeated once again on our shores. We have been invaded by the socialism and secular humanism of old Europe, and are being made slaves and subjects of its authoritarian system. Freedom is virtually stamped out of existence in most of American society. When religious freedom goes, and Christians are no longer free to worship and share their faith as the Founding Fathers intended, no longer able to teach their children in church and school (yes, public school) as they intended in the Bill of Rights, the Amendments, and the Constitution, then we have a dictatorship of secular humanism. America, as it was founded, no longer exists, and another nation that they would not have recognized has taken its place. This is the greatest tragedy to ever occur in the world, that the lamp of freedom be put out in the birthplace of freedom, the United States of America. We had glimmers of freedom shining in other places, in other times, but here it burned brightest, as long as the last 250 years. But now it is going out! The lamp that the Statue of Liberty lifts above the harbor of the New York, once the beacon of the poor and oppressed of the earth, no longer shines into human hearts and spirits, even if the light of the torch is still on. We are plunged into the same darkness that lies heavy on Iran, the Middle East, and most of Asia and Europe and Africa. Once we were a shining city on a hill as our Puritan forefathers envisoned America, but now we are a dark, demon-oppressed valley of despair and degradation. God help us!
Iranian soldiers and "revolutionary guards" and their Hamas and Hezbollah cohorts in Iraq and Gazastan, are now the goose-stepping Nazis. They actually do goose-step in their military parades! This is no accident. Hitler was very, very esteemed and popular with some (but not all) World War II Moslem leaders in the Middle East. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was truly one of them, and we have the photographs of him meeting with Hitler. I have seen them several times. He didn't just meet Hitler, he actively worked strenously with Hitler, helping to raise a Panzer division for Hitler's elite tank corps from among the Muslim Bosnians we recently helped to save from Serbian genocide (a lot of good it did, helping those who want to exterminate Jews! But that is the grace of Christ, is it not?). Hitler is still popular with many Moslems of the Middle East today. If he were alive today, they would be in league with him, sad to say.
The first English settlers, landing at Cape Henry in 1607, in what would become the Colony of Virginia, first erected a cross when they landed. A Christian cross, a Cross of Calvary, signifying the suffering and death of Jesus Christ, given for our sins and our soul's salvation! That cross proclaimed their intention was to dedicate this new land to Jesus Christ, and to the propagation of the Gospel, which they stated in writing as well. Cape Henry is what we call Virginia Beach, and CBN has erected on its property nearby the place where the English pilgrims landed and erected a cross, a replica, of which this is a picture. Every school child should be taken to see it and learn the true history of the founding of our Christian nation of America--not left to remain in the darkness of a politically correct, humanist revision of our history. Our forefathers dedicated this land and nation to God and the Gospel of Christ the Savior and Lord. May we always proclaim this truth, and live and obey God accordingly, in a manner that is worthy of our founding fathers, so that they will not be ashamed of us when later we meed at the Judgment seat of Christ to account for our stewardship of the riches we have received from them.
"Despite our wonders and greatness, we are a nation that has experienced so much social regression, so much decadence, in so short a period of time, that we have become a place to which civilized nations used to send missionaries."--William J. Bennett, Former Secretary of Education under President Reagan.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
"Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy."--Habakkuk 3:2.--from Billy Graham Association.
AT A TIME
The Lord told Curtis Kelley that Christians were not taking the Lord seriously. They also did not forgive the Lord for not giving them right away what they wanted when they asked for it. They blamed him for that and also for not answering a prayer for someone and that someone died. The Lord said he had not sinned, he had done nothing wrong, and so they must forgive him for what they charged him wrongfully with, or he could not bless them and they could not move on spiritually until then. Moreover, the Lord told Curtis that many pastors were living anyway they liked, sinning, even to having lovers while they had a wife. Many of these would die in their own pulpits if they did not repent and cease sinning, the Lord said. The Lord also mentioned Christians who had aborted children secretly. He said that if America did not repent of its sins, which includes abortion, he would allow us to be destroyed. A catastrophe of destruction would strike us, and he showed Curtis the people who would do it--Curtis saw a woman and some men working together, terrorists operating in this country as a sleeper cell. Perry Stone confirmed this, as he said he had the prophecy from a prophetic man of God in Australia that this country would be struck a mortal blow by terrorists and afterwards you could not recognize it as America. (9/11, then, was just a little warm-up exercise, compared with what is coming soon!).
We must repent, overturn the infamous, genocidal Roe vs. Wade, repent of all our own sins too against God, or we will suffer utter destruction in America, not a gradual destruction, but one that consumes us in fire and explosions no doubt from nuclear devices and dirty bombs from one end of the country to the other. There will result an America that cannot be recognized. Is this what we want? Will we continue sleeping, lost in the thick pillows and comforters of our beds of sloth, apathy, and self-indulgence, and denial of sacrifice and God's demands on us as Christians? Our doom is certain if we continue as we have done up to this point.
"Today's global warming activists are the direct descendants of the old Marxists who trampled on individual freedoms and undermined free markets in pursuit of a greater good...Global warming is a religion conceived to suppress human freedom because it is used to justify an enormous scope for government intervention vis-a-vis the markets and personal freedom--Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic (was part of the old Czechoslovakia). This man is no doubt despised by the secularist leaders of Germany and France and Belgium and the other members of "EUTOPIA," but he is telling the whole truth. Global Warming is nothing but the biggest scam on the face of the earth!
AND DID THOSE FEET
And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among those dark Satanic mills?
Bring me my Bow of burning gold,
Bring me my Arrows of desire,
Bring me my Spear, O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green & pleasant land.
My dear friend of many years, Kathleen Smith who is the editor of the Anchored Magazine of Worcester, England, her home, is now in her nineties, yet she continues to continued the "Mental Fight" for God's kingdom to be preserved and also to be revived "in England's green & pleasant land." Yes, the dark Satanic mills of aggressive secularism and now Islam too are polluting the whole land of Britain, turning millions away from Jerusalem. Jerusalem seems very neglected now in that society, which has abandoned God and is now giving up its own country to the secularists and Islamicists with their sharia law. Anti-Christ groups even put anti-Christian slogans and messages on public buses, using tax money for "faith communities" to attack the Gospel and Christians! Yet despite this, she and the faithful remnant of British Christians with her continue their valiant "Mental Fight," and take the shining Bow of their faith, and the spear of love, and charge the enemy that seems to have conquered England and enslaved her with the forces of darkness. We need to do the same thing in America, never quit, never give up, never relinquish the fight, or concede the Victory which is ours in Jesus Christ. No matter how hopeless it now appears, we have the Victory in Jesus Christ--only in Him. He is ruler of heaven and earth, and that includes Britain and the U.S. too. It does not matter what our rulers claim, that we are not Christian nations. We are Christian nations! Founded as Christian nations! Alfred the Great founded England as a Christian Nation, many hundreds of years ago in the 9th century, and our own country was founded a Christian Nation 250 years ago. We will not give up Christ, nor will we give up our nations to the enemy, to the forces of darkness and anti-Christ.
2. "Forgive me!"
3. "I love you!"
(Not necessarily in that order)
If you want to know what Methodism once was, read John Wesley's Journals. as I did and was forever grateful I had picked up the book, as it is a fascinating view of the man and his mission for Christ and also his country. John Wesley wrote (and this expresses the Gospel too, and how he viewed God's Word!):
"I have thought, I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God, just hovering over the great gulf, till, a few moments hence, I am no more seen, I drop into an unchangeable eternity! I want to know one thing--the way to heaven, how to land safe on that happy shore. God himself has condescended to each the way; for this very end He came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book. O give me that Book! At any price, give me the Book of God!"--John Wesley

What is the future of the world and the EU in particular? Bible Prophecy indicates that the final empire of Daniel's image, the EU, the only empire referred to relative to the 2nd Coming, will be destroyed by the return of Christ. Our major responsibility as Christians is to bring a spiritual awakening in the world through the powerful Gospel of Christ, especially to reach Europe--now! For centuries mission activity has been concentrated on all other continents--assuming that Europe was Christian. Now we must face the stark reality that Europe is the least evangelized continent. The traditional mission fields of Africa, India and China have more believers than Europe! Europe and Britain in particular are the main targets for evangelism by Islam. And if we do not act quickly, the very heartland of Christian faith and mission could become paralyzed by "Political Correctness."
We must not allow any attack of Satan--neither conspiracy of evil, nor fear of offending against sexism, ageism or religion--to stop us fulfilling the first and the last command of Christ to His disciples: Preach the Gospel!
In such a crisis the only answer is a spiritual one--faith in the living God. And this is why we need to go in now with the message of the Kingdom of God. Suddenly these European nations are more open to receive Christ than at any time since the collapse of communism. We saw this in the response to our crusade in Talinn (a Baltic nation captital) last year which touched a whole nation! Who will respond to the challenge?.....Lord send me!"--David Hathaway
Sometime before his end, after he had achieved world-wide fame and fortune and found it meant nothing, Lennon wrote to Oral Roberts, pouring his heart out. Did you know that? All these years, I didn't, thinking Lennon was never such a soul-searcher or so urgent a seeker. His letter went: Rev, Roberts: This is ex-Beatle, John Lennon. I've been wanting to write you,b ut I guess I didn't really want to face reality. I never do this, this is why I take drugs. Reality frightens me and paranoids me. True, I have a lot of money...but basically, I'm afraid to face the problems of life. Let me begin to say, I regret that I said the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. I don't even like myself anymore--guilt." He went on to tell about his terrible family background, his mother dhying when he was an infant, his being raised by an aunt, and how his father deserted him at age five. He wanted to kill his father after he came begging him for money. He ended the letter to Oral with a cry of despair: "I want happiness. I don't want to keep up with drugs...Explain to me what Christianity can do for me. Is it phoney? Can He love me? I want out of hell."
Katrina/Rita, etc., etc. Still no repentance.
Economic meltdown of Wall Street, the government's monopolistic, arrogant confiscation of leading financial firms and banks and Detroit carmakers, with Health Care next: still no repentance.
Virginia Tech and other massacres in schools nationwide: still no repentance.
lst Marxist authoritarian leader of a once free, democratic America: still no repentance....
Please go to the Red Alert Center on this page. You need to hear what the Lord has given a man of God in warning, right on the eve of our destruction.
Hear the Word of the Lord from Proverbs, Chapter 3, verses 31-35, as evil is condemned by God without compromise:
"Do not envy the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
"For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord, but His secret counsel is with the upright.
"The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the home of the just.
"Surely He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble.
The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the legacy of fools."
May the curse of the Lord (with shame, scorn, and no blessing) be on Barack Hussain Obama's house until he sees his agenda is not working and is abhored by Almighty God. Let God send a dream of threat and doom, if the blessings of his millions of dollars awarded his two books, cannot get him to think twice about what he is doing. God sent such dreams to the idol-worshipping Philistine King, Abimelech, to warn him not to strike or harm Isaac in any way but to bless him and be friends with him, or else! God sent a plague upon the Pharoah and his household and the Egyptians round about for taking Sarah as his concubine, joined with a dream and words warning the Pharaoh with disaster. Both Abimelech and Pharaoh listened and obeyed in fear and trembling, they refrained from the evil they were intending to do Abraham and his wife and Isaac and his people. Obama is leading the United States and all our people down into the same old pit of destruction. May he be granted divine mercy, may he be sent a warning dream from the Almighty God, the Holy One of Israel, to refrain from doing evil to Israel and from doing evil tot he innocent unborn children that are not protected by U.S. laws any longer and are scheduled to be murdered at the rate of 4,000 a day. May the Almighty Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, stick these eternal, living truths of the Word of God into the grinning, lying mouth and craw of Barack Hussain Obama and all his degenerate crew in the White House and his government. His wicked, oppressing, power-and-greed-motivated government is set like a juggernaut to roll over all our country, to crush out the last of our cherished religious and civil and individual liberties, while the mass of evangelicals sleep on in their pews, blissfully unaware or hypocritically denying to themselves that the country is now in the hands of hostile enemies, domestic terrorists such as we have never faced before. We have sinned grievously as a nation and people and brought this great calamity upon ourselves! We have played the fool in our churches, sleeping or willfully sinning and indulging our lusts and various idols, while the wolves assaulted our society from all sides. God has permitted the devouring locusts to spread over the entire country, and now will we cry out for deliverance to the Lord? Will we admit and confess we have abandoned God, and invite him back? Will we cease excusing ourselves and our stinking sins, and choose righteousness and holy living? Will we? The forces of the Devil, riding high over us at the present hour from Washington, are certain we WILL NOT call on Almighty God and forsake our evil ways, and, by default, that they have us by the throat and will be able to finish us off this time. But here is something for them: Sic semper tyrannis! "Thus so to tyrants!" That is what the Word of God declares!
Feverish preparations of all our avowed enemies, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, Sudan, Syria, Iran, North Korea, Burma, and many others like them, to co-ordinate a major surprise, pre-emptive attack on the U.S. as well as bases overseas. We have mentioned this before on this page, as it is a growing, even imminent catastrophe as Captain Obama directs this ship of America full steam straight toward the ice berg! This will have to take place either in his first term or second, but has to happen before he leaves office, as our enemies cannot risk another stronger, more rational president coming to power, who would certainly use our military forces against them and make them pay dearly for whatever they do to us. A weak-minded, soft-spined peacenik leader who loves to "downsize" American power and prestige is what they prayed the Devil for, and now they have this absolute wussy, Barack Hussain Obama, and with him all of America centered in their gun sites. I am just describing him according to his actions and speeches. He has made himself the Big Bird doofus of Sesame Street who thinks he can sit down and have a beer with his sworn enemies, a pack of the most dangerous and bloodthirsty tyrants on Planet Earth, and everyone will be good pals from here on out. We all know what will happen. They will make hash with mustard greens as a garnish out of this excuse for a President of the United States of America. He is no national leader, he is an international, Grade B Movie actor, a world globalist aiming to shove and manipulate America into denationalization, all our sovereignty abandoned to the colossal failure called the "United Nations," and then after achieving that, our final absorption into an even more disastrous World Government, with Kissenger standing at Obama's side like Merlin the Magician, guiding and instructing his every move and speech. He is Carter the Unready, returned to office, but with a double dose of whatever made Carter so odious and so destructive of America. The American people woke up. My own liberal friends were so disgusted, they had lost so much money due to his policies, they decided he had to go. Carter did not win a second term, fortunately, or our enemies would have been emboldened to attack us then and finish him and us off. But now they have someone who will be the perfect sitting duck, who will even smile on cue for the incoming missiles.
"One of the greatest battles against the church is being waged today. Yet, countless Christians seem unaware of the tumult, while still others shrug their shoulders in an attitude of indifference. It is these lethargic Christians who are responsible for the sorry spiritual state of their denominations or congregations.
So many churches and denominations have set aside the true Word of God for the philosophies of the world. These bastions of heresy and apostasy dare to call "good" what God's word has declared to be "evil." Even so, Christians continue to support these churches through their presence and offerings. Surely, it is time for God's people to turn their backs on every appearance of evil and live out their lives in true obedience to His Word. "Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?...Come out from their midst and be separate," says the Lord (2 Cor. 6:14,17)." Barnhard begins his "Editorially Speaking" with this significant verse: "Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed to the saints" (Jude 3).
Did Hitler appear a wolf before he proved he was a wolf? Of course, not! He came in just like Obama, wearing a nice sheep's fleece, so to speak, spouting all sorts of things the economically hard-pressed Germans wanted to hear: hope, change, prosperity, a new world order with Germany leading.
Hitler coming out of church after a service:
Jesus Christ first, and all the rest will fall into line.
When you see the likes of Barak Hussain Obama claiming the is a Christian and yet lying to the American people with almost every word that passes his lips, it is confusing people as to who and what is a Christian anymore. People tend to believe the claims, even though the life does not back up what is claimed. Claims are being judged sufficient proof of being a true Christian or not. There are no longer any "false" or "counterfeit" Christians. All Christians are equal, good or bad. This is false teaching. The Bible is not written in the gray zone, where there are no absolutes, where good can dialog with evil and seek to learn from evil (this is the contemporary spirit of compromise that holds that all contrary points of view are equivalent and hold equal weight in the arena of ideas, a spirit that puts saints along side sinners and on the same footing, that seeks to find common ground between Hitler and the Jew murdered at Auschwitz, the terrorist and his victim).
"What is a Christian?" from the Herald of Hope Paper, 1975, with "Who I am in Christ," from God's Word, Scripture by Scripture, 1-69. We also want to include portions of "The Power of the Blood," by H. A. Maxwell-Whyte as a companion piece to T. L. Osborn's message on the Blood of Jesus Christ. In connection, Billy and Franklin Graham's latest Decision magazine carries the theme, the Blood of Christ, in all its main articles. We also want to feature "Modernism and Tomorrow's Church," by Y. L. Ylvisaker, which is a companion piece to our already featured, "Good Without God," by W. E. Sangster, which shows the disaster for the church and for Christian faith in individuals and in society when goodness is divorced from morality, God, and the Bible. You should check out at the library or buy at Wal-Mart or a Christian bookstore or order on-line the video or DVD film, "Time Changers," which deals with the same issue ina most dramatic way you will find fascinating, as it uses time travel to make its point more graphic, by transporting a church school professor with a book of theology about to be published to the streets of today's Manhattan urban jungle. His discoveries conclusively convinces him his theology is wrong, that good cannot be divorced from God and still remain good. TBN also has this film on DVD, and I received a copy from them.
