Endless War…

Posted by lamarzulli on June 9, 2011

I was up until 2 in the morning dealing with my parents, as my mom spent most of the night in the emergency room. She’s back at home resting but I’m exhausted so here’s a short blog….
I read this morning that the USA, is conducting secret air strikes in Yemen. OK… so that’s war #4, which us yet another war without congressional approval. Why not just throw out the constitution right now, and declare ourselves a fascist state. We can wear arm bands, and start goose-stepping to our workplace, and sing patriotic songs at the water cooler, and report suspicious activities to the proper authorities and conduct random pat-downs just in case someones grandmother is wearing an explosive suicide belt!
President Eisenhower warned us of the military, industrial complex before he left office. What we see in 2011 is endless war with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and now Yemen. I wish I had the video playing right now of Obama telling the people BEFORE the election how he was going to bring our blood and treasure, back home and close Gitmo! Well here we are 2.5 years later and the war rages on, 45 million people are on food stamps, foreclosures are at depression level numbers, and our government has grown bigger…this is the change we can believe in?
Yesterday a SWAT team broke into an apartment and arrested a man without a warrant. It’s ok though because it wasn’t you or me, it was someone else, that had the jack boot on his back, at least for now.
America is at a crossroads and unless we the people take control of the weasels and Weiners that are our leaders, all will be lost. Just think 45 million people on food stamps…. We haven’t seen this since the great depression.
In closing todays’ post: The Military Industrial complex absorbs billions of our tax dollars. We are all over the globe, “policing” it while making sure that the rebels in Libya can “purchase” heavy artillery from their local fallafal stand. God help us….

    Amen, brother! I’m also a little more than outraged, and astonished at the American “sheeple” for allowing the things now happening in our once great nation. I recently asked my only living Aunt (she’s 90 years old) if ladies in her generation would have allowed their purses to be searched to enter an amusement park, ball game, etc. She laughed and said “absolutely NOT”! We’ve come a long way down the drain, and I fear that my grandkids will never know TRUE freedom. My late father said that he wished my brother and I could have been alive to see the country as it was when he was growing up in the 1920′s. Back then, crimes such as murder were almost unheard of. Police were there to protect the people, not to bully them, as is today…………….I no longer watch television, but rather rely on people such as yourself for the REAL news. I enjoy listening to your Wednesday show, which I download on my MP-3 player each week. Thanks for all you do, brother. May Lord Jesus richly bless you and your dear ones as we continue the roller coaster ride in this crazy wicked world. Dolores

      You are both on target! “THE US CONSTITUTION HAS ALREADY BEEN THROWN OUT BY STEALTH AND INCREMENTALLY!”
      tHE NAU IS SECRETLY IN PLACE with the manchild Obinator being elevated through NAU and UN to now become President of the EU & NAU, so they both will be merged together. All
      nations in each have lost their national sovereignty, which every nation must do in order for the globalist NWO (Nazi Facists Collective) to gaint total control and world domination under a One World government and A One World Religion.
      It’s here, it’s NOW–in PRESENT TENSE (NOT future ‘will be’).

    We’re doing double duty now. (In the latter times, he, lucifer; will wear out the Saints of God).

    America, isn’t One Nation under God anymore. Therefore, we are losing our God-given Blessings, acdg to Deuteronomy Ch 28.

    We have individual protections acdg to the Word of God and a good Bible Prayer is Psalms Ch 91…The Soldier’s Prayer for Protection.

    • James said

      Thanks for the reminders and info Greg. Speaking for myself, nothing uplifting wants to stick in the mind, anymore. Praise music really helps, but I’m not one to walk around with a music thing constantly plugged in my ear (too many potatoes) so the claustrophobia-ish feeling descends again.

    • Hold fast to your faith! The Lord is with you in your valley. “Come to me ALL who are weary (sick in spirit)…”

    • Yup!

      Unfortunately, most Christian Americans think we are some sort of “Godly” country. They believe we are the “good” country that has the “right” to attack any country they feel for whatever reason.

      Any WMDs in Iraq? Nope. So what? Still invade. Lie about the WMDs. So what? Most Christian Americans don’t believe the government lies, or they just believe the Democruds do, but not the Republicruds.

      So let me see……the Feds lie about WMDs (breaks a Commandment), they steal our money via taxes (breaking another Commandment), and they use this money to kill others (breaking another Commandment), and most Christian Americans have absolutely no problem with this.

      Guess the torture doesn’t look too bad. God doesn’t have a Commandment against torture.

      GW Bush is such a great Christian American!

      Just like Obama!

      Doesn’t the Bible warn us of following false leaders?

      America is about to get what we deserve.

    • Matt said

      Too bad the people or common folk have to suffer for the idiotic decisions of their governments. China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Somalia just to name a few will also be punished for said crimes against humanity; the US is certainly not alone in these matters.

  3. Sundown Lady said

    Well, what’s the plan? I don’t see that anyone has come up with a cohesive, comprehensive, collective workable plan.

    Yes…God help us…and He is…and He will never leave us nor forsake us. His plan is that we watch and pray. So, how or what do we add to that?

    Yes, that seems, in the natural, to be a very passive non-resistant stance, but it is what I see Jesus admonishing us to do. I am standing in the Kingdom of God, looking out the window at what is happening in the World System…all the kingdoms of the world are beginning to fall at the same time, including the US of A…falling, because of their un-Godliness. How do you stop that? Put your finger in the crack in the dyke?

    Sad to say, but these things are written that they must come to pass. Can we prolong the time? And how do we go about that? Rioting in the streets–and getting shot at? And what does that accomplish?

    No, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. We pray and believe…He pulls down the strongholds, just like He has always promised He would do.

    This may not be a popular stance among many of you, but from all my studying of scripture, it is the only one, I can see, that we are commanded to take. But then, perhaps I’m blind.

    • Late Night Lisa said

      Amen! It’s popular w/me.

      When judgment strikes a nation the people of God can be required to live in the midst of uncomfortable or even dire situations. Where was Daniel divinely located? How did he cope? What occured when the people whom God chose to use fled from hardships? Spiritually speaking, the safest place to remain in right on the front lines.

      Our nation is being judged by God. I knew that the minute Obama was placed into office. God has a plan for this nation & ultimately it will be for His glory. Interceed in prayer & continue to stand for righteousness in every way available.

      The process of America being brought down is extrememly painful to watch but if I dwell on that then I’ll dim my sight on the Kingdom of God. It takes me less than 5 minutes of mentally reviewing the “what was” compared to “what is” & “where it’s heading” to bring up anxiety. Since we are told to be anxious about nothing – I know it’s not what I’m supposed to focus on. On the other hand we’re human & if we weren’t lamenting about our situation then it would signify a problem w/our hearts as well.

    • Elaine said

      Yes, Sundown! I find myself having to screech to a whining halt as I pray and say, “Thy will (not my will) be done” quite often lately. It is so weird to know that we are at the grand finale of the Book. Dread at the process and eagerness at the happy ending!

    • James said

      Good point, Sundown.

      I think we are all under attack on many levels, some of which attacks are designed to cause and in-fighting and ankle-biting and etc. among us.

      Thinking of people as un-American, or apathetic, or whatever for the purposes of a reply post in the BLOG might very well be a result of sneaky attacks on the mind of the person writing the post, as it seems to me.

      We know in our hearts that decrying others as un-American, or apathetic, or whatever, will not help to solve any problem with the staggeringly huge, Satan-owned-and-operated governmental system we all labor under.

    • Elaine said

      AMEN! We war not against flesh and blood……we must try to remember that each lost soul sent to confuse us is another precious soul that Christ wants!

    Wow! The whole SWAT team serves a warrant in alleged financial fraud case?
    Our tax dollars at work. No wonder police departments are cash-strapped. This guy had no criminal records or anything ,you cannot use a swat squad this way.
    How many SWAT team members raided the Madoff’s businesses and homes in NY?
    How many SWAT team members raided ‘Little Timmy’ Geithner’s residence looking for HIS W-2s in his tax fraud case? If normal everyday folks do something the feds don’t like and heaven help you because no one else can.
    The U.S. is fast becoming a police state. Martial Law will be coming to a town near you, soon! Wait until Quantitative Easing cannot print any more money, U.S. has to borrow money at higher rates and inflation skyrockets, then you will see more hardship for Americans and more militant-style police actions. It’s coming, make sure you are prepared to defend your property.

    • Sundown Lady said

      Oh, I think the point is – “you can use a swat squad this way.” …becoming(?) a police state?

    • Matt said

      How about you are not suppose to use a swat squad this way.

    • Sundown Lady said

      NWO – playing the game and calling “new rules” in the middle of it. We’ve all played with players who did that! Trouble is, NWO seemingly owns the bat and the ball. I can only imagine that the reasoning behind the appalling swat squad intrusion into that home, and the main stream media blaring it across the news, was to let all of us peons know that we’re in a new game and this is something we should be prepared for…because they can and will enforce it.

      So, listen up folks, be prepared. This is the message LA faithfully puts to us day after day after day…get prepared for what is coming.

    The fight I carry out on a local level here is against fracking, the natural gas extraction process that ends up polluting (in our county’s case, 33%) people’s water wells. I’m amazed at how nobody cares…unless it’s their water well or their public water supply that’s been contaminated. Otherwise, people are stuffing gas money in their pockets from their leasing land to the corporate interests who are drilling.
    The point being…people simply don’t care outside the cyber-bubble they take refuge in.

    600 Dead Penguins Present Uruguay Authorities with a Mystery

    Authorities in Uruguay say that about 600 dead penguins have washed up on the Atlantic coast since Saturday. Experts are trying to determine what has killed the animals.

    A navy statement Tuesday says the latest batch is 200 dead Magellan penguins discovered on the shore at La Paloma about 125 miles (200 kilometers) east of Montevideo.

    A marine animal rescue group perviously reported that the carcasses of 400 Magellan penguins washed up around the resort town of Piriapolis, along with dead turtles, dolphins and albatrosses.

    The resort is about halfway between Montevideo and La Paloma.

    Very sad news, I happen to like penguins very much, in fact I have liked every penguin I have ever met, except maybe Burgess Meredith.

  8. Rhema said

    SL, I agree w/ you. I don’t think we can prevent the prophesies fm coming to pass no matter what we do. I believe we can restrain some of it thru prayer til we be taken out of the way but I feel that the greatest good I can do is to love and obey the Lord, love others for Him and speak His Word thereby perhaps changing the eternal destiny of those individuals to whom He has me minister His Word. I’ve made a few preparations in the natural realm but my greater preparation is in the Spirit. Drawing close to him and being willing to have my natural man crucified.

    • IndyRose said

      Hopefully as well as we share about what is coming it will spark interest in further conversations about the TRUE prophecies in the Bible. One thing I have noticed is there is such an ignorance about prophecy in the Christian community it is pathetic. Perhaps they think ignorance is bliss.
      Met a lady at an open house for a friend’s son’s graduation. She and her family are looking for a new church because of “hurt” at their old one. She was enthused about one they visited where they were made to FEEL so welcome. I was asking about the teaching, if it was from scripture and so on. The big criteria was the place was friendly and had a great Youth program. Didn’t know what the Youth were taught, but they sure kept the kids busy. Then we wonder why the youth leave the church in droves with no commitment to Christ.

      To paraphrase: “For God so loved the world He did NOT send us a PROGRAM”

    • Late Night Lisa said

      The priorities are clear. The scriptures are not as important as the social atmosphere. With these types of people it really makes me wonder if they have even experienced God’s presence @ Church? How could one value social interaction over the Lord speaking to you through the reading & study of His word? Sounds similar to the Church of Ephesus leaving their 1st love.

      When we lived in TN- the “Bible Belt” I ran across this quite often & it drove me nuts. It was really something to come from the CA environment to the South & see a church building on every corner. Bibles were free on racks in convenience stores! At the kid’s Gymnastic class they “prayed” before the class began & had “scriptures” on the wall! (Completely unheard of in CA.) If these were all on fire Christians now wouldn’t that be powerful?! The numbers were staggering compared to CA.

      But what did I find @ the typical little Southern Church? Just what you described. And then on top of that the “on fire” Bible focused Church we attended was having issues I believe w/a insidious spirit bringing in “Rick Warren / Shack” false doctrine. (It was taught in small groups & promoted the books.) There was something going in the worship too & I kept testing that spirit until the day we left. If I’m praying for spiritual protection in the midst of a Church setting then you know there’s something suspect going on. The energy was powerful & made the congregation “feel” good. It would “sweep” though in waves – the best I can describe it. For some reason the Lord didn’t want us to leave but I kept checking in to see if He did.

      The Bible teaching was really great though & couldn’t complain about that one. What a confusing mess that was. It was like the Lord was there but also a perverse spirit present & attempting to break in & mislead the flock.

    • Jacqueline said

      Yeah, soCal churches can be a bit of a bummer. Church #1 had awesome worship, gifts of the Spirit, and real agape love, but the leadership was its own bubble and inaccessible to the lowly laypeople, with a cultish figure who went liberal and shunned the authority of Scripture. Church # 2: Never felt quite right, but the Holy Spirit was mightily working nonetheless; pastor fell to homosexuality. Church # 3: Amazing bible teaching, just the best. Dead worship, but whatever. Gifts were driven out a decade ago. Kids program atrocious–bigotry, bullying, and boredom. Had to leave to spare the kids. Church #4: Party church. Pastor abused at childhood church, so this youth program is just the place to be. Some solid kids are there but not many. Problem with the church is that the pastor preaches Jesus and repentance and everything, but it’s a program. He scorns that broken, contrite, destitution of spirit that the Lord loves. It’s happy happy praise Jesus all the time. . .and don’t be actin’ like the Lord talked to you this morning while you were eating your breakfast.

      But Jesus is there, in all of ‘em, walking in the midst of the lampstands, exhorting, encouraging, reproving, pleading. I know You are there in all of them Lord. Please use us all right where we are, and let us minister to the saints with all we’ve got. Every church has its hardcore remnant, and then the ones who need shepherding, patience, exhortation, prayer, and love. It is frustrating to me when the teaching is unscriptural–that’s when I cut and run. Otherwise I just try to be real, lowly, vulnerable, and loving and see if God can comfort or edify someone through me.

    • CelticKevin said

      Right on Jacqueline! The Lord is there! It is amazing how diverse our churches can be, but what matters most is Jesus.

    First of all, sending you and your family prayers for your Mom and Dad. Been in the ER many a times with both parents as they aged. Please do take care of yourself as well, it is hard both physically and emotionally to deal with this. Extra hard if you try to be awake all night in the ER waiting room!

    The white horseman is riding out as a conquerer bent on conquest of the earth. The red horse is ready to go and may have already started his ride. The black horseman soon follows. Is there any doubt where we are in time? The age is coming to a close. Whether or not there is a pretrib, midtrib, or at his coming gathering/rapture or not, things are going to get very chaotic. It is time to make sure the world hears of a savour that is greater than any of the earthly troubles that are inevitably on their way. SHALOM to all…

      Idk margaret, my bs filter is calling shenanigans. If any such body was so clos we could see it as a second sun in the sky by august, it would be far easier to see now. How do you feel about this article? It was an interesting read nonetheless.

      I’m not sure how I feel about this planet x thing. When I was apostacizing back into new age, this was one of the things that led me astray. Still I don’t know that I could completely rule out an extra planet like this in our system. I just feel that most of the info out there is new age bs.

      Has LA said anything about this?

      What does everyone else think?

      Sounds like a new blog topic for me.

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      Frank, the whole Planet X thing is new to me also, but some credible evidence has been found. This was put up on the forum recently:

    • Frank said

      Rose,

      I don’t disagree that good evidence exists to make a case for planet x. I do agree there is some good ev idence, and I admit I ant 100% debunk it either.

      At the same time, just because good evidence exists doesn’t mean something is true. Good evidence “aliens” and ufos come from other planets, but we all know that isn’t the case based on other evidence that they are demons.

      I guess all that to say is until planet x manifests itself in the sky I won’t believe it any such planet is enroute to earth.

      If u don’t mind tho, woul u be able to link some of that evidence here? Also, if there’s a biblical reference that would be cool too. I want to look into these myself and blog about it.

      Lisa, I can’t read all of that, but what I did read does sound like a good possibilty I admit, but I remain a skeptic on the “nemesis” idea.

      I used to believe it, but now I have to doubt it.

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      Frank, I’m not saying it’s true or false – I honestly don’t know. All I’m saying is that I used to think it was a bunch of New Age huey, just like you did, and now I’m having second thoughts.

      On the forum, Ruggie has an entire sub thread devoted to the topic if you want to investigate it further. If not, that’s fine. Follow the Lord’s leading.

      Also, Lisa did post a great deal of relevant scripture evidence below. If you don’t have time all at once, take it in chunks. It will be worth your time.

    • Frank said

      Thx rose, that statement puts a new spin on things. I’ll look thru lisa’s info in smaller chunks and try to find ruggies stuff.

      What is “the SIGN of the Son of Man” ? What was it the FIRST time he arrived on the earth? Hmmm…

    • CelticKevin said

      I strongly believe that the video shows lens flare or sun dogs, which are visual artifacts created by camera flaws or limitations. I recommend taking a few moments to search for a few debunker videos, because there are some photography savvy folks out there.

      It wouldn’t surprise me if there is some heavenly body closing in on Earth right now that could fulfill prophetic scriptures. If that object was near or of decent size, I really do not think it could escape detection for long. Even amateur astronomers can follow some faint and/or distant objects with their backyard telescopes.

      Eventually a mountain of fire will plunge into the sea and that sure sounds like it could be a comet or asteroid. All of the first four trumpet judgments could be interrelated.

      Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.(Rev 3:10)

      New Living Translation (©2007)
      “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.

      Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
      Because thou hast kept the word of my patience – My word commanding or enjoining patience; that is, thou hast manifested the patience which I require. They had shown this in the trials which they had experienced; he promises now, that in return he will keep them in the future trials that shall come upon the world. One of the highest rewards of patience in one trial is the grace that God gives us to bear another. The fact that we have been patient and submis sive may be regarded as proof that he will give us grace that we may be patient and submissive in the trials that are to come. God does not leave those who have shown that they will not leave him.

      I also will keep thee – That is, I will so keep you that you shall not sink under the trials which will prove a severe temptation to many. This does not mean that they would be actually kept from calamity of all kinds, but that they would be kept from the temptation of apostasy in calamity. He would give them grace to bear up under trials with a Christian spirit, and in such a manner that their salvation should not be endangered.

      From the hour of temptation – The season; the time; the period of temptation. You shall be no kept that what will prove to be a time of temptation to so many, shall not endanger your salvation. Though others fall, you shall not; though you may be afflicted with others, yet you shall have grace to sustain you.

      Which shall come upon all the world – The phrase used here – “all the world” – may either denote the whole world; or the whole Roman empire; or a large district of country; or the land of Judaea. See the notes on Luke 2:1. Here, perhaps, all that is implied is, that the trial would be very extensive or general – so much so as to embrace the world, as the word was understood by those to whom the epistle was addressed. It need not be supposed that the whole world literally was included in it, or even all the Roman empire, but what was the world to them – the region which they would embrace in that term. If there were some far-spreading calamity in the country where they resided, it would probably be all that would be fairly embraced in the meaning of the word. It is not known to what trial the speaker refers. It may have been some form of persecution, or it may have been some calamity by disease, earthquake, or famine that was to occur. Tacitus (see Wetstein, in loco) mentions an earthquake that sank twelve cities in Asia Minor, in one night, by which, among others, Philadelphia was deeply affected; and ‘it is possible that there may have been reference here to that overwhelming calamity. But nothing can be determined with certainty in regard to this.

      To try them that dwell upon the earth – To test their character. It would rather seem from this that the affliction was some form of persecution as adapted to test the fidelity of those who were affected by it. The persecutions in the Roman empire would furnish abundant occasions for such a trial.

      ——–
      Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
      Because thou hast kept the word of my patience,…. The Gospel; so called because it gives an account of the patience of Christ, in the midst of all his outward meanness and humiliation; and because it is a means of implanting and increasing the grace of patience, which God is the efficient cause of, and Christ is the example of; that patience, which bears a resemblance to his, in enduring afflictions, reproaches, persecutions, desertions, and temptations, and in waiting for his kingdom and glory; and because both the preachers and professors of the word have need of patience, and should exercise it in like manner as Christ did. This word, the churches, in the Philadelphian state, will keep pure and incorrupt, and observe the ordinances of it according to the directions given in it; and will believe the promise of Christ’s personal coming, and patiently wait for it: wherefore, Christ promises as follows,

      I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth; this hour seems to refer not to any of the vials which will be poured out on the antichristian states, but to some affliction and distress which will befall the reformed churches, and will light upon the outward court worshippers among them It seems to be the last struggle of the beast of Rome, and to denote some violent and sharp persecution, such as what Daniel mentions, that never was before nor since; but it will be but short, but one hour, the twenty fourth part of a prophetical day or year, perhaps about a fortnight; yet it will be very extensive; it will reach all the world, the whole Roman empire, and all that dwell upon the earth, that are called by the name of Christians, and will try them, whether they are so or not; Christ will now have his fan in his hand, and purge his floor of all his formal professors and hypocrites; and it will be known who are his true churches, and pure members; and these he will keep close to himself, and preserve safe amidst all the distress and confusion the world will be in. This cannot refer to the bloody persecutions under the Roman emperors, for from those the church at Philadelphia was not preserved. We read (s) of twelve members of it that suffered with Polycarp,

      (s) Euseb. Eccl. Hist. l. 4. c. 15.

      Not the words which Christ has spoken concerning patience, but the word of Christ which requires patience to keep it; the gospel which teaches the need o a patient waiting for Christ. On patience, see on 2 Peter 1:6; see on James 5:7.

      From the hour (ἐκ)

      The preposition implies, not a keeping from temptation, but a keeping in temptation, as the result of which they shall be delivered out of its power. Compare John 17:15.

      Of temptation (τοῦ πειρασμοῦ)

      Lit., “of the trial” See on Matthew 6:13; see on 1 Peter 1:7. Rev., trial.

      World (οἰκουμένης)

      See on Luke 2:1

      People’s New Testament
      3:10 Thou hast kept the word of my patience. Hast endured and kept my word.

      I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation. Of stern and cruel trial. Some great crisis of trial and sorrow which should come on all the world. We may not know just what our Lord referred to, but we can believe that he fulfilled his promise.

      Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary
      10. patience-”endurance.” “The word of My endurance” is My Gospel word, which teaches patient endurance in expectation of my coming (Re 1:9). My endurance is the endurance which I require, and which I practice. Christ Himself now endures, patiently waiting until the usurper be cast out, and all “His enemies be made His footstool.” So, too, His Church, for the joy before her of sharing His coming kingdom, endures patiently. Hence, in Re 3:11, follows, “Behold, I come quickly.”

      I also-The reward is in kind: “because thou didst keep,” &c. “I also (on My side) will keep thee,” &c.

      from-Greek, “(so as to deliver thee) out of,” not to exempt from temptation.

      the hour of temptation-the appointed season of affliction and temptation (so in De 4:34 the plagues are called “the temptations of Egypt”), literally, “the temptation”: the sore temptation which is coming on: the time of great tribulation before Christ’s second coming.

      to try them that dwell upon the earth-those who are of earth, earthy (Re 8:13). “Dwell” implies that their home is earth, not heaven. All mankind, except the elect (Re 13:8, 14). The temptation brings out the fidelity of those kept by Christ and hardens the unbelieving reprobates (Re 9:20, 21; 16:11, 21). The particular persecutions which befell Philadelphia shortly after, were the earnest of the great last tribulation before Christ’s coming, to which the Church’s attention in all ages is directed.

      Hi LNL~
      WoW! Thank you so much for taking some time (quite a chunk of it actually) to do this expository teaching. I’m actually going to print it out…along w/ some of NMM’s stuff as well. Isn’t it exciting to just dig in and discover the meanings within God’s great “mysteries”? Gives me the “holy bumps” every time I finally “get it”! Btw LN, I’m really glad that you did a contrast and compare between “Bible Belt” and “free-wheelin” California Christianity (I have southern born and raised parents and am from SoCal originally. Been in WA state for 36 years.) Just wondering if you have ever read Greg Boyd’s book called “The Myth Of A Christian Nation”? I read it a few years back. Check it out if you feel so moved. His many blessings and peace to you dear one.
      In Christ,

      Moment, I just copied the expository teaching from the link @ the bottom. There are more details on the link but I was trying not to make it longer than it was already getting.

      Both the Churches contrasted were in the Bible Belt actually. But the Pastor of the “free-wheelin” Church origionally came from Costa Mesa, CA some years ago. So you could say it’s a hybrid of sorts! CA Pastor relocated to Bible Belt.

    38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    There’s just one war on non-saudi Islam.

    Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, etc. — all part of one war.

    By rights, Obama should be impeached for trying to get the US involved in a religious war.

    It’s not about any one country. So it’s not really about 4 wars — but one.

    • In A Moment said

      Hi NMM~
      Is your meaning in reference to Sunni Islam vs. Shiite Islam? Also what do you think is/are the actual worldly “reason(s)” behind allowing(?) Obama to pull these…..stunts? It’s just creeping me out that BHO seems so…..roguish.
      I also want to thank you for all the great expository teachings you post. Absolutely fascinating. Aside from Russ Dizdar’s classes, literature and podcasts who else do you find to be Holy Spirit inspirational in teachings?
      His Peace and blessings to you,
      “Moment”

    • nomemoleste said

      Hey Moment,

      Definitely the war is against the Shiite’s. The strategy of the enemy in my estimation is to eliminate the elements of religion that are most against interfaith alliances. That applies also to dictatorial leaders that resist. In Qaddafi’s case he wants to head “United Africa” instead of joining with the Arabs.

      Obama is looking like America’s counterpart to pharoah in the life of Moses. He’s a babykiller (partial birth abortion proponent…) to limit the population. He wants economic pyramids built by slave labor. We know he rejected the Bible during his oaths of office. He doesn’t see that the enemy uses the same old scripts. His heart is being hardened; He may have to lose family before it breaks, after other plagues. He’s trapped in a fractal fate with Christ as the only means of escape. And he won’t be allowed to straddle the fence between Christ and Mohammed.

      1st John 2

      23 …he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

      26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27 But the anointing [the Holy Spirit] which ye have received of him [Christ Jesus] abides in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

      The Word of God and the Testimonies of the saints.

      St. John of course. David in the Psalms. Luke & Paul.

      Like Russ Dizdar, Derek Prince before him.

    This is for Hopeful_watcher…

    2 Corinthian 6

    4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; 6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8 By honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

    There’s no contradiction. We can rejoice and weep. Sharing and feeling the infirmities and calamities of others in empathy, while looking for both rescue and the promise of eternal overcoming.

  16. What can we do? For starters I believe we cannot pass by the hungry no matter how judgemental we are about them and people are very very judgemental, especially if they know why the person is going hungry (addictions or other reasons). Did you know that over a billion people every night go to bed hungry or that one child every 7 seconds dies from starvation or from malnutrition related to starvation?
    This cannot be! IT should not be! We are called to love one another yes that comes with some strings attached.
    We’re human however but we’re given free will for a reason. Anyways just one thing that I came up with that we can do to help while the world crumbles around us.

    • I also think that these evil wicked “light chasing” luciferians will make even more have to turn to food banks and remember that almsot all agriculture and food manufacturing is being bought by nations that tells you they dont trust someone or they to are preparing. I think they’ll target foodbanks. They will make many have to use them as I do and theyll put poisoned or e coli drug resistant strains of bacteria into it.

    • Elaine said

      So right! When I first began stocking up in case of emergency, I thought in terms of how much I would need to shelter in place. I live alone and this was always just common sense in case of a storm or something to just have 2 weeks worth of supplies. Then it grew to trying to stock up for a year….ah ha! But then, my son and his wife moved to town to help me with my big old house and use the empty apartment upstairs that my knee keeps me from accessing anyway. I looked at my pantry and thought “ok, we will have enough for 4 months.” Better get more….then my daughter in-law’s uncle moved in with them and I knew we have just enough for maybe 3 months (2 men will probably need more calories than the 2 women) ….then, began to think of all the other near and dear who might come to me. Hmmm, you are so right and as long as I have anything, no one will go hungry and if the day comes we run out, we will be hungry together. But I am not so worried about quantities any more!
      Back to lilies of the field and I am sure there will be loaves and fishes!

    Hopeful Watcher, Sorry to hear about your Parent’s condition. It is a good thing that you are with them and giving them Love right now. Faith in God, Love and Prayer from a loved one are sure medicine or remedy to the sick than all man made medicines. Hang in there and keep up the Good work. For now, take care of your parents and enjoy them. Pls conserve your energy to preach and practice Rightiousness and Avoid anger, Do not waste your energy or place your fate on any wicked Leader in the world today. Many Parts of the world today has bad or mad leaders (satan’s agents) who will rather exterminat all their people than give up power. God has decided to Remove all such filty Leaders from seats of Power. God has also decided to disgrace all False Prophets and False Messiah Cliamants. God is busy shaking the world, siffing through the rubbles of the world and seprating the sheeps from Goats. Only the Rightious who love Almighty God will be saved by the time this tribulation is over, Take Care. Vivian

  18. Of course we are continuing the wars!

    The citizens will get as many wars as the elite wants as long as the citizens do not realize that 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB!

    The Feds will ALWAYS be able to start another war since the FEAR has been established within the hearts of the US citizens due to the New World Order’s 9/11 event.

    The true culprits of 9/11, Bush, Cheney, and Rice, who stood by and allowed the New World Order to pull the 9/11 event lies in front of the citizens, are still free and praised as heros.

    Now, we have Obama, Biden, and Clinton standing by and allowing the lie to continue.

    So obvious that the WTC 1, 2, and 7 were controlled demolitions. So obvious that whatever hit the Pentagon was NOT a plane. So obvious that Flight 93 was shut down.

    Due to this lie, millions of innocents have died in the Middle East. That is blood on the American citizens’ hands.

    Yet, few Americans care. Nor do they care about the torture in Guatanamo Bay. No once cares.

    Until the truth of 9/11 becomes mainstream, America is doomed.

    Just so easy to blame the Muslims. Just like when Nero blamed the Christians, and Hitler blaming the Jews.

    America is just the Bully boy carrying out the internationalists’ plans for middle east conformation to the Government of the beast.

    consider this fact; and this is only one example. when Saddam was in power there were churches in the country presently most of the christians in Iraq are in syria. you can count the number of Christians in Iraq to be under 100. The US gave no support to the persecuted christians in iraq whilst on the other hand opens the door of immigration to Muslims.

    we know from scripture that the true enemy of the beast is the seed of the woman ( the church) The body of Christ in the earth. The US is being used as an instrument of the Devil in the destruction of the christian faith .

    I am Australian only by the national status of the Beast system.That goes for you Americans as well. First and foremost My citizenship is in the Kingdom of God. We are the endangered species on this Planet.

    We should pray for christians in the middle east that The lord will keep them during this time of Trial and separation as the Beast consolidates his territory in the physical realm.

      Your post immediately made me think of the DeGarmo & Key song “Aliens and Strangers”:

      And for the first time, I look around and I realize, I realise
      My closest friends are aliens and strangers, travelers here, living with danger
      My closest friends are aliens and strangers, travelers here, living with danger

      I used to wonder why they act so strange
      Now I know, yea, now I know
      I heard the preacher say
      This world we’re in is not our home, it’s not our home
      My closest friends are aliens and strangers, travelers here, living with danger
      My closest friends are aliens and strangers, travelers here, living with danger

      They’re pilgrims just passing through
      Heroes from their homeland
      And since I’ve discovered the truth

      Are you familiar with their song, “Casual Christian”?
      Yes, I do have their library on album and cassette. Those guys were the group of the 80′s for some of us. Well, along with Allies and a few others. Took SO many of ouryouth from church to see them in concert back in the day.Great memories. Destined To Win is still probably my favorite all time from D&G.

    • Matt said

      Jeff D, do you remember a Christian band called White Heart from around the mid 80s?

    • Jeff D said

      Matt, yes, Whiteheart was one of the FIRST CCM bands I had heard. I still have “Hotline” and play two of my all time favorite songs from the group, “Jerusalem” and “In His Name”I followed through the changes and if I remember right, thelast release of theirs I bought was “Freedom”. They had agreat run I know that. Were they your fav?

    • Matt said

      Well, I went to a few of their concerts, but their music sounded a little too soft for me. The bottom dropped out for White Heart when the lead singer was arrested for raping a pre-teen. Really shook up the Christian music scene for a while, they spun it like the reports were misleading until his wife came forward with the truth which lead to his arrest and sentencing for rape of a underage minor. A real tragedy for all involved and a very big fall from grace for him. . They had many singers after his departure, but he was the singer that sung on the album Vital Signs.

    • Softcurls said

      No Jeff, I don’t know that song. I’ll definitely watch it on YouTube. I have their album The Pledge, love the song Boycott Hell, a good southern rock song. I just read that Dana Key died last summer.

      Another absolute favorite 80s christian band for me is Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart. Saw them several times in concert. So many great songs from that band.

    What’s next? My daughter comes home w/her yearbook & tells me she wants to show me something. She flips it open to show a group picture of the class w/Nathan Fletcher on their 4th Grade Sacramento fieldtrip in front of the Capitol Building.

    Right beside Fletcher’s head & above the students is the image of a large Orb. It would measure approx 3′x’3 circumference.(I even see an image of a face in it. Looks like the image in the Shroud of Turin but no hair & no beard. Mustache only.)

    It could just be an odd effect of camera photography & my creative imagination. I’m wondering why they would choose that picture for the yearbook w/such an obvious “blemish” visible. Especially because it’s at the focal point of the composition. Strange.

      It’s just a bunch of Mom’s who put the yearbook together. I’m probably the only one who would even know what an Orb looks like. (Other than my daughter- the only kid who would know too.) But – I wouldn’t put it past “someone else” in someway give me the finger. lol!

      I “think” Orbs are a manifestation of energy from an angelic being. That could be either fallen or holy.

      It could be just an anomaly too. What do I know. I’m certainly no “Orb” expert.

    What teachers have you found inspired and reliable? What resources? Long before writing and books were common, the lessons were made to be memorable.

    All due Credit to Christ for His own teachings and revelation through the spirit of Truth, as he’s said:

    “I am…”
    1. The resurrection and the life (believe in me, and though you die, you shall yet live)
    2. The light of the world (whoever follows me will not walk in darkness buy will have the light of life)
    3. The good shepherd (and the door of the sheepfold)
    4. The way, the truth, and the life (no one comes to the Father, but by me)
    5. The Son of God (only begotten)
    6. The bread of life (whoso comes to me shall never hunger nor thirst) (manna from heaven)

    “Eyes to see and Ears to hear:”

    God sent His only Son, to die to save us–while we were yet sinners! Jesus was sent to save all of mankind who will choose to repent of all sins, ask forgiveness, believe and receive Jesus as their personal Savior, the Messiah sent by Father Creator God!

    1. Prepare yourself (have oil in your lamp-be a ‘wise virgin’) and your family SPIRITUALLY FIRST (get your heart right with your maker Father Creator God and prepare to meet Him-through repentance, prayer, studying and telling others the Good News of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God is near!.

    2. PREPARE PHYSICALLY IE FOOD, WATER PURIFICATION, PROTECTION FOR
    YOURSELVES AND YOUR FAMILIES.

    3. Prepare mentally and have a plan!

    4. Focus on Jesus, LOOK UP! Be obedient to the words of Jesus, in plain truth as found in The Bible, (Authorized KJV). Let God’s word speak for itself. The Bible says what it syas. You do not need to rely on another man’s interpretation of it–for you could be deceived and led astray like Eve & Adam in the garden. Be wise!!–Cathy in Wyoming
