DNC 2012: DNC Platform Changes on God, Jerusalem Spur Contentious Floor Vote

DNC 2012: DNC Platform Changes on God, Jerusalem Spur Contentious Floor Vote – YouTube

ANTI-CHRISTIAN HATE SPEECH SPEWS FROM THE PALM BEACH DEM CHAIR

Democrat Chair Spews Anti-Christian Hate Speech | Video | TheBlaze.com

If you do nothing else today take a few minutes and watch these two videos as in my opinion, they are beyond the pale.  The first shows the heart of the Democratic party as a vote is taken from the floor of the convention in which the members are asked to say yea or nay, on whether God should be included in the party platform, as well as Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  It becomes clear that the Nay’s have the majority and don’t want God or Jerusalem as part of the DNC.  Los Angeles Mayor Tony “Vallar,” – his local nickname – is clearly taken aback by the vote as it was not what he expected.  He then proceeds two more times for a total of three votes, to produce the answer he wants.  Here’s the rub, in the end he doesn’t get it!  Listen to the delegates as they yell NAY!  It is clear that the majority of the vote is against having God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on the DNC’s platform.  When Vallar declares the Yea’s have it there is booing and hissing!

The next video is so over the top, it’s hard to imagine where this guy gets his position from.  In my opinion, his logic is twisted, hateful, and if a Christian said something similar the media would have a field day publicly eviscerating the person who would produce this hate speech.  Yet, this guy gets a pass.

As I said last night on Acceleration Radio, we are a nation deeply divided.  The DNC is now officially the party of death as they embrace abortion on demand.  Check the link out below.

Democratic Platform aggressively pushes taxpayer-funded abortion – National Elections | Examiner.com

In Closing todays post:  We are country divided.  There’s now a deep ideological chasm which separates democrat from republican.   While I do not believe Mitt Romney has all the answers and I certainly question his core beliefs, he is more in line with the positions I hold on abortion, God, and Israel.  I believe in the sanctity of all life and that it begins at conception.  I believe Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel and I’m not ashamed to state it here.  I believe in an almighty, good, God, who will at some point reveal himself once again when his only begotten son Jesus, returns.  And no, I don’t want Jews to convert to Christianity, only to examine the evidence that their Messiah came 2000 years ago, for prophecy states: they will look on him whom they have pierced and mourn for him as an only son.  

Be still and know that I Am God.  Behold the days are coming when I will show my strength on the mountains of Israel

    Loved the show…like I never not love it. ;) :)

    For the record: I LIKE hearing those crickets in the background. Adds a nice effect. Ambience. ;)

    That sound clip at the beginning of that Jewish (Rabbi?) on the floor of the DNC. It’s sad how prevalent that belief is amongst a number of Jews and professing (so called?) Christians. I need to know what Bible some of them are looking at…sounds more like a concept I’d find in a Koran.

    We even saw some people posting that here before the comments section had to be understandably shut down. It’s just tragic all the way around for people to believe the likes of that.

    Couple of quick odds and ends that dovetail with the news links and blog for today. More than one witness, etc. etc.

    Lose the quotes:

    “http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/we-are-entering-the-most-fateful-50-days-since-yom-kippur-war-says-senior-israeli-official-epicenter-conference-set-for-next-week/”

    URL self explanatory

    “http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canada-closes-em”

    Canada is shutting down their embassy in Iran. Their PM has his head on straight and presumably a Christian. He’s definitely pro Israel. I have no doubts that’s why Canada is better off right now than the USA. This action is notable IMO in the larger context of things.

    “http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/09/intelligence-committee-chair-describes-explosive-confrontation-between-netanyahu-and-american-ambassador/262056/”

    A repeat that I posted late last night that I want to make sure a lot of people see for the obvious context and ramifications.

    Something’s going down soon.

  2. Hey Brother Louie, I agree absolutely with what you’ve been told here, (although taking your shoes off and banging them together as you walk away might get lost in our culture,) I believe that you need to “exit” as quietly as possible, try not to add to the chaos and confusion that the enemy has already stirred up in that body… Bless them as you leave, and pray for restoration of the Pastor… The dividing lines are getting more pronounced EVERYDAY… millions of people who once stood strong are being influenced by the thinning of the veil… evil is “bleeding through” like NEVER before… (especially in high population centers) “Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” Go in peace, blessing as you go…

    • “My crimes against the church are wanting the church to call for an all church prayer time”

      Louie,
      I can tell you that when you asked for the church to establish prayer time, the enemy had to do something to take you out and since he was already gaining the upper hand in that church anyway because of sin, he was free to move and you were especially targeted by him. I had a similar experience years ago, when I asked for a room to be opened for prayer, during the church’s alternative Halloween Party for children, so that we as parents could pray against the entities that would be released that night and against the human sacrifices that would be taking place. Well, that didn’t go over too well with the church leadership and I was seen as rocking the boat. I was a young christian at the time and didn’t understand any of it.

      Mystic gave good advice, and that is to forgive and keep going. Even though you’re shocked and it may sting. Bless them anyway, pray for them, and don’t let this move you. The Bible tells us be very careful of a root of bitterness, that Satan will try to plant in us when we have been offended, which can really damage our walk with the Lord.

      Louie rejoice! This scripture is for you!

      (Luke 6:22) “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
      23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.”

    • Eric W. said

      1 Timothy 4 and 2 Timothy 3 describe the symptoms. It used to be I and a lot of other people thought these verses were just about the world in general but it’s becoming increasingly clear that while that’s true the verses are also describing inside the Church! You’ve got apostasy and heresy all over the place and outright hostility to Biblically sound doctrine. People don’t even like that word “doctrine.”

      Some encouragement: 2 Peter 3.

      We’re living it and brother Louie just had an up close and personal reckoning with it like a lot of us have.

      But be encouraged brother Louie! These things along with the kinds of stuff you see LA cover all the time can only mean one thing as they all happen together in increasing strength and frequency:

      Jesus is coming soon! :)

    • Louie said

      A huge Thank You to those who responded to my comment last night. I really needed those. And LA the Lord knew I needed to share that burden, and had no where else to do it. Thank you the blog was open, and Thank You for your support.

    L.A., you hit it on the head with, “And no, I don’t want Jews to convert to Christianity, only to examine the evidence that their Messiah came 2000 years ago, for prophecy states: they will look on him whom they have pierced and mourn for him as an only son.”
    As a follower of Jesus, I feel more like it is me who converted to Judaism from my pagan ancestry but with the added bonus of recognizing Christ!

    • hopeful_watcher said

      Amen to that. Last Sunday in my bible study class we looked at how Jesus is the “fulfillment” of Jewish law. In other words a living example of how Jewish law is lived out. Ironically, those that are Jewish, who in sincerity follow Jewish laws and not just lip service, actually are followers of Christ, unbeknownst to them. They just refuse to accept that Jesus is its fulfillment, but they are on the cusp and when Jesus returns they will “mourn for him as an only son”.

    • Christianity as religion or culture… dead end. (apostasy)
      Faith of a believer… dead end. (apostasy)
      Judaic Law (vs. Mosaic Law)… dead end. (apostasy)
      The Holy Days without Christ… dead end. (apostasy)

      Faith in Yeshua — Amen!
      Christ fulfills the Law, the Holy Days, the Promises — Hallelu-Yah!
      (fulfills = completes … He is our Sabbath)

      ps.
      patriotism… dead end.
      Yeshuah Messiah is our Lord, God, and King!
      And Brother, Father, and (collectively) Husbandman.
      And so much more!!!

  4. L.A., if Jews accept Yeshua as their Messiah, they have become what we generally call Christians.

    • lamarzulli said

      No – They become Messianic’s or completed Jews. They accept not convert, there is a differnce.

    • Eric W. said

      ^^ Agreed.

      L.A. have you ever run across the Hebrew Roots Movement and/or “British Israelism” ?

      Also known as Ephraimite/Two House Movement?

    • lamarzulli said

      Eric – Yes.

    • “They” are the original branches who recognize the fullfillment of the promise. We Gentiles have to be grafted in by receiving their promise, and claiming it as our own.

    • Brandi said

      Totally agree with L.A. Jews don’t convert to Christianity, they become Messianic or completed Jews!!!

    • hopeful_watcher said

      Hundred percent correct. There is nothing to be converted over to. Jesus IS Jewish. He follows Jewish law. He is the fulfillment of that law and a living example of how Jewish law is lived out on the earth.

      They only need to embrace that.

    • LA is correct. Once a Jewish person (as well as the gentile) receives the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and savior they become what Sid Roth (Jewish commentator) refers to as “One New Man.”

      “…so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace…” (Eph 2:15)

      As for the Jewish man in the video, he doesn’t represent the entire Jewish nation. He represents his personal view.

      As well as pro abortion, this view is representative of the few who are uninformed and uneducated. Pro abortion is embraced by both the Democrats and Republicans.

      I am pro Jewish and pro life so I guess I represent the minority and that is so totally unacceptable. The work has been cut out for us to represent the moral values of Jesus Christ and His agenda for life and life abundantly, to an uninformed uneducated world, including to the Arab nation.

      Blessings,

    • Does that make Adam Jewish, or Enoch, or Noah, or Abraham?
      (who by the way are alive and well and living in Heaven with Christ as we speak in their spirit bodies, mostly, except Enoch, as best I can tell)

      Who is the Root? Out of which Israel and Judah stem?

      Who is the Branch? Into whom we are branches.

      Who spoke when He said, “Before Abraham was — I am.” (John 8:58)

      Getting the cart before the horse is a classic error.

      The only way to be more Jewish than Judah (who is alive and well now with Christ) or Israel (likewise)… is to be their progenitor.

      Who is Adam the son of? (Luke 3:38)

      Moses’ laws were given by whom?

      Where does it say in scripture — “neither Greek nor Jew” ?

      Where does scripture say — “a new creature” ?

      Our natural bodies are grafted in. Not our spiritual bodies.

      Romans 8
      22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
      23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

      Please don’t mistake what I’m saying for being against Israel. I’m for Israel, most of whom are with Jesus now in their spiritual bodies. More alive that we are in these “seeds” called our current bodies of flesh.

      The flesh (physical bodies) in this world is crucified with Christ and dead — for those who are saved.

      Hmmm…. there’s another way to tell this — what happens to the spirit bodies of the damned when their flesh dies……….. (hint: it’s not pretty)

    • ghillie said

      Surely Messianic Jews are Christians? They have accepted Jesus as their personal savior, the same as a converted Gentile. Did the New Testament show such delineations? Show with any approval anyway. Paul gave Peter an earfull in public for drawing back from the converted Gentiles.

      Just curious about this as it is just a technicality after all. I’d rather sit around with other Christians and discuss minor apparently insignificant [ as to outcome ] parts of the Bible than be talking about sports or movies.

    • Eric W. said

      Ghillie: When everyone gets saved they become Christians. That’s true.

      For Jews becoming a Christian really does mean becoming a “completed Jew” in this sense:

      Remove quotes:

      “http://www.gotquestions.org/Messianic-Judaism.html”

      ^^ Pretty good and simple explanation as any out there.

      Hope that makes sense. :)

    And now I’m going to inject some GOOD news and encouraging things here! :)

    From Prophecy in the News’s Facebook page:

    ” Gary is taking a week off to go out to California to participate in L.A. Marzulli’s, Watchers 5 project. Gary hasn’t had a vacation in several years and is utilizing this time to take a short break. ”
    :)

    I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed time this weekend.

    I think about it…poor Gary and that crew had JR get real sick and then pass away and had tocrank 1000 percent and suddenly you turn around and it’s near the end of 2012 and you haven’t paused to take a breath in a long time.

    Wow. Has to be nonstop Holy Spirit overdrive.

    I’m SO glad he’s finally getting some R&R and I daresay that it’s going to be fun and blessed with L.A., Peggy, and the crew. Good times for all. :)

    Needless to say: Can’t wait to see Watchers 5. :)

    I noticed that Dr. Leir seems to be making his round again so I’m assuming he’s in better health than he was. I keep him in prayer and I maintain the burden I’ve had for him: He’s on the frontlines and he needs the armor of God and doesn’t have it. Yet. ;)

    He’s a good man and I respect him and the work he’s done big time and I’m going to keep praying for him. Great guy. :)

    Did I hear on the show last week that someone got saved? Was it David Weatherly the author of Black Eyed Kids book? There weren’t any nmaes offered but someone got saved and was in the context of Black Eyed Kids. Whoever it was, that’s great news! :)

    And yes: We’re praying for Fritz, too. He’s close.

    He’s intellectually honest, he’s a good man, and he’s got this stuff right in his face. So does Dr. Leir.

    I’ve got a good feeling about that Nephilm Mounds get together. ;) :)

    Mariel-If you happen to have a messianic synagoge nearby, go and attend a time or two. Its so awesome and such a celebration of Jesus and his Father! You will love it and it will all make mor e sense then.
    Louie-Don’t sweat it. Its heartbreaking and gutwrenching but no big deal really. (i-a very wimpy Christian, and the most holy God worshipping woman that ever lived both got kicked out of a church. Why? Because we were called at the last second by the prison ministry who needed 2 extra “church people” to attend in order to meet the jail rules. We didnt get kicked out for going. We got kicked out for the Holy Spirit moving to strongly!!!!! First and only time I saw a demon getcast out. It was very intense! EVERY person there gave their life to Christ that /igt including the guards.) But our pastor didnt get the glory frim it so he was mad!
    I was so distraught. I even left God after that for a long time. And that incident was the straw that brike the camels back for my kids. They washed their hands of it at that point.
    I once read that satan really controls most of the larger churches and I believe it! They push out some mumbly mush and lune their pockets with the widows mite, living in giant houses and havung orivate jets while a good portionof the fauthful tithers can’t put food on the table for rheir children. These will be the same jerks who tell you its ok ti take the mark too. Hmmmph!
    Sorry but I get riled up by this! Riled Jesus up too, so im in good company I guess. Trust in God, not in man!

  10. yes, evil is being pressed into the open, but let’s not forget to look at the hand that is wielding the sword! Judgement is coming because righteousness is coming! The scythe goes before the one who wields it!

  13. “Judgment is coming…”

    What happens to the spirit bodies of the damned when their natural bodies die? Do they get to jump back in as zombies or vampires?

    1 Corinthians 15
    42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
    43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
    44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
    There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
    45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul;
    the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
    46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural;
    and afterward that which is spiritual.

    You may want to check Paul’s explanation of what happens when you “cohabit” with the enemy. Something nasty is born.

    Definitely anathema to being Born Again of the Spirit of God.

    So when the natural body dies, the corrupt hybrid spiritual bodies of the damned get to look up at their coffins, or watch their rotting flesh decay about them. And that’s as good a description of sheol (hell) as you can get. Like burning.

    Remember the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

    If you don’t get that there’s a spiritual (or supernatural) reality — you’re missing the major areas of the revelations from God in the Bible to His witnesses.

    And do you think the physical bodies of the damned after their resurrection are going to last in the Lake of Fire?

    Quite a different situation for the spiritual bodies of the damned (spiritual nephilim) which are cast out with the rebel angels, as best I can tell. To burn forever and ever and ever. Or if you prefer, their worms (resurrected bodies) die not. But I place more emphasize on the Lake of Fire being truly the Second Death for them.

    • At first, I didn’t understand the question, John. Ezekiel 37 allows for the whole house of Israel that have been slain to be resurrected and brought out of their graves in the Valley of Dry Bones event.

      Ezekiel 37
      9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

      11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

      13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, 14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

      Clearly this is not “all Israel” since it refers to “the slain” in v. 9. Perhaps it’s the slain because they were the people of God out of all generations and around the world? Perhaps it’s the slain just in a time when some major portion of Israel is annihilated by WMDs. God is just. I they have been slain because of Him as Messiah (Christ), He can of course deal with them appropriately.

      In any case, these have come out of their graves — not believers. In that sense, they are being brought out of hell. And their flesh remade from the physical land of Israel which were their graves. If related to the rest of the chapter, then they will be joined to Judah, and David made king over them forever. That seems very like a sanctuary situation.

      I have a question John. What about those not “slain,” that died of other causes, still unsaved? Are they part of resurrection(s) after the first resurrection? (cp. Rev. 20:6)

    This might not make sense. I’m confused. The Christian church will celebrate Christams (tree, santa, gifts ect.) Easter (bunny, eggs, candy). But when it comes to celebrating Passover, Rosh Hashanah, and other Jewish holidays…the Church seems to make it seem sinful to celebrate these biblical holidays. Is it so wrong? If anyone can answer this for me that would be great. I have been doing research and I can’t seem to get a clear answer. It’s been mixed reviews. If I felt led to celebrate Passover is that wrong? I have felt led to not celebrate Christimas or Easter. I’m sure my family would think me crazy. But God has really been pressing my heart on this issue.

    • lamarzulli said

      Kristen – In my opinion the Feast days we should adhere to are the ones set down by the Lord. Christmas and easter are reworked pagan holidays which crept into the church hundreds of years after the Apostles. I don’t celebrate Christmas…. L. A.

    • Kristen said

      Alright, I have been in deep thought and prayer over this. God is really changing my heart on a lot of things. I always seem to get conflicting reactions or views. Starting this year I would like to do what God calls me to do. Feast days. Got it. Thanks!!

    I should probably mind my own business and keep on Passing Thru,but having watched the course of this blog for a little while,I have to ask…Is this something you would all be supportive of? LA? I can see why you would want control of the comments here on your own blog,but what about for a state,a nation,an entire world?

    Free speech, anyone?

      After having skimmed through the amendment referred to in the article: “http://leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-12/bill/asm/ab_0001-0050/hr_35_bill_20120823_amended_asm_v98.html” and the article itself titled: California Passes Resolution Equating Criticism of Israel With Anti-Semitism, it appears the article title draws a conclusion the amendment does not state.
      Free speech and hate speech are two different things.

      Free speech is free speech. I would not consider criticism of Israel to be anti semetism no more than criticism of Obama as being racist. Now if you state that all Israelies must be pushed into the ocean, then yeah that is antisemetic. With that said, all antisemites will say Israel doesn’t have a right to exist, but not all who disagree with Israel are antisemites. It’s like saying all square are rombuses but not all rombuses are squares.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
