Thoughts For 2016

Liberty & FreedomChrist, Lord, Liar, or Lunatic?  What was he? What is he to the world now, especially the secular media?

C.S. Lewis “Mere Christianity”…the Christian intellectual, from Oxford, as was William F. Buckley and his old debates with the agnostic Gore Vidal, still all on YouTube.  Quote C. S. Lewis from “The Great Divorce”. “I have nothing to do with any generality.  Nor with any man but you and me.  Oh, as you love your own soul remember.  You know that you and I were playing with loaded dice.  We didn’t want the other to be true.  We were afraid of crude salvationism, afraid of breach with the spirit of the age, afraid of redicule, afraid (above all) of real spiritual fears and hopes.  You think that, because hitherto you have experienced truth only with the abstract intellect. But when we are comparing Christians in general with non-Christians in general, we are usually not thinking about real people whom we know at all, but only about two vague ideas which we have got from novels and newspapers.  If you want to compare the bad Christian and the good Atheist, you must think about two real specimens whom you have actually met.  Unless we come down to brass tacks in that way, we shall only be wasting time.”

Lord, Liar, or Lunatic? “Lewis would conclude that atheism was too simple because it doesn’t adequately explain the complex design of the universe.  Later Lewis discussed his spiritual findings with J. R.R. Tolkien and Hugo Dyson, two fellow scholars.  Lewis kept looking at the myths and wondering if all those stories were really echoes of the one true story.  Lewis’ great concern was a fear of the divine interference.  He would later acknowledge: “Christianity placed at the center what then seemed to me a transcendental Interferer. He later understood this desire to maintain control of his own life, “this is my business and mine only.” As you may have stipulated.  But is it?

“I read Chesterton’s Everlasting Man and for the first time saw the whole Christian outline of history.  Chesterton laid out a clear picture of the origin of civilization, with God stepping into history through the incarnation of His Son.”

“For when we look deep inside ourselves, we see the wretchedness of our souls, and the sin nature, as looking in a mirror, which is all about man’s will and the stubborn resign, that we know better.”  What arrogance.  That too is what is wrong with America today, the arrogance of this President, the arrogance of the American Pop Culture, which I hate.  Even the arrogance in rebuilding 911 and the new tower; built in defiance without repentance.  And it could come tumbling down again.  Does not God tell us over and over to “examine our own soul?” To “see” if there be any wicked way in us.  Does He expect us to be perfect?  Of course not, for when we err, that is when we are to go in our prayer “closet”, shut the door and the world out, and continually ask HIM for forgiveness.  For God gives us that free will.  It is your choice after all.  Jesus paid the ultimate price, so that we might be with HIM.

Lewis wrote: “When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him.  When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less.  A moderately bad man thinks he is all right.  This is common sense really.  You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping.  You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly; while you are making them you cannot see them.  You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk.  Good people know about both good and evil; bad people do not know about either.  Now, today, this moment, is our chance to choose the right side.”  Mere Christianity

“No natural feelings are high or low, holy or unholy, in themselves.  They are all holy when God’s hand is on the rein.  They  all go bad when they set up on their own and make themselves into false gods.”   The Great Divorce. (Which in some instances becomes idol worship.)

Lewis further wrote:  “God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers.  If you are thinking of becoming a Christian,” (asking Jesus to save you and come into your life as Lord and Savior).  “I warn you, you are embarking on something which is going to take the WHOLE of you, brains and all.  But fortunately, it works the other way around.  Anyone who is honestly trying to be a Christian will soon find his intelligence being sharpened; one of the reasons why it needs no special education to be a Christian is that Christianity is an education itself.  That is why an uneducated believer like Paul Bunyan was able to write a book (Pilgrims Progress) that has astonished the whole world.” Mere Christianity

For when we come to Jesus, like Saul on that road to Tarsus, who fell on the road, the presence of God was so overwhelming, and the Holy Ghost fell upon him.  A slave trader and murderer, like John Newton was, until both had a Holy encounter with Christ, came down on his face, to write one day, “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound to save a wretch like me.”  When Saul got up finally he became a new person in Christ, to be called Apostle Paul, the greatest preacher and evangelist in the Bible.  Both he and Newton DIED, as all of self was cast out as with Paul.  When he was revived, the old man was dead, and the new man was reborn, in Christ. “With that, intellectualism, and rationality is also cast out, and we are given faith, mercy and above all grace and eternal life.  What more could we ever ask for.”   Lewis said, “Die before you die.  There is no chance after.”  Til We Have Faces

“The salvation of a single soul is more important than the production or preservation of all the epics and tragedies in the world.”  Christianity and Literature.  It is more important than life itself, global warming, race relations, all of seculars rights, even terrorism, for there is only ONE who is really in charge, God Almighty.  We are in essence in HIS hands, in HIS mercy, and under HIS grace.   

I was asked a question a few weeks ago, by a Christian, who I believe has one foot in the world and secular, for she did not understand one iota.  She asked, “Noah was really old when he built Noah’s Ark, why did God shorten our lives?  Was it life expectancy, all the illnesses that they didn’t have back then? “ Ie Climate change?  You see that is how the world thinks?  Like Lewis wrote above in intellectualism vs faith.  I Answered this back and she still didn’t get it.  “Noah was 600 years old. He was the grandson of Methuselah, ( remember song, “It Ain’t Necessarily So, in it, Methuselah lived 900 years….” )  Also was the son of Lamech a decendent of Adam.  Cause of man’s SIN nature, God destroyed “everything with breath.” Because HE IS God.   

From my Smith’s Bible Dictionary.  (Old) “Nothing is known about Noah (means “This name shall comfort us”) until he was 500 years old.  He begat 3 sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (see Genesis 6). The best remembered event was that God chose him to build the ark.  Remember, it took him 40 years, and he was mocked and laughed at, ridiculed.  But when the rains started to come, and the flood, and God said close the gate, there was screaming and pleas to take them  in the ark.  But, they had their chance, and God closed the door.  That’s how God is.  Heartless? Mean? Depicted wrongly by Hollywood’s version.  No, but He gives us every opportunity in our lifetime, to repent of our sins, and come to HIM.  Remember, my old teaching I blogged?  “Righteousness the Seven People God Can’t Save”?  Once you are dead, it is too late.  The Catholics can pray their rituals, and make the sign of the Cross, but it’s too late.  When you are dead, and haven’t given yourself to Christ.  IT IS TOO LATE! Your soul has already either gone up or gone down!

Look up the word, “Antediluvian” for that was the society Noah lived in then.  The ark was built with divine direction.  Like the Ark of the Covenant, and the Holy of Holies…  The priest in the Temple, had to walk backwards, to get inside the curtain, to the Holy of Holies, for the light, and the Power of God was so strong, that if he faced it, he would have been struck dead.  Do you know that that East Gate too, has been closed now for way over 2,000 years..guarded.  That is the Gate  that Jesus is going to go through when He touches his feet on Mt. Olivet.  God said that if anyone went through that Gate which is HOLY…He would strike them dead!  STILL today!

SIN…Does anyone acknowledge sin, in this politically correct, occult, lewd, selfish, greedy, pop culture, media driven, politically correct world filled with terrorism?  Of course not!  So now we have too, Islam rampant as can be in Europe and encroaching upon us here in America, to take over all of Western Civilization.  Why?  When did this begin?  I have on here post after post on the Ottoman Period from the early 1300’s to 1920’s.  Centuries of blaspheme and lies, torture, killing, stoning, heads sliced off….in a brutal movement called Islam.  Genesis 25:12-18 talks of the origins of Islam.  Yes.  It is Biblical.  I say thanks to stupid Sarah who couldn’t obey God. SIN.  Abraham had two sons..Isaac and the generation of Ishmael, from his handmaiden who was Egyptian, Hagar.  (Ishmael had every opportunity to serve God, but regrettably he chose another path.) pp Expositor’s Study Bible.    13. These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations.  Verse 18 then states, “ And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as you go towards Assyria and died.  (Ishmael was the head of the Arab people who regrettably, at least for the most part, chose also a path of faithlessness.  Christ being rejected as always is the case with sinners, wherefore, a false deity filled the void.  That false deity was Muhammad, who has enslaved the Arab people from THEN until NOW! For there is no freedom from sin outside of Christ!)  Expositor’s Study Bible.  

Concrete doesn’t last forever, concrete only “cracks” with time and weakens.  For every argument you atheists and agnostics ​have, I have an answer and the truth!  Hawking may be a brilliant physicist in his own right, but he is going to hell and I’m afraid so are you.  There is a hell.  EVERYTHING..EVERYTHING that is happening in this world with the Muslims, Israel, etc., has been warring for thousands of years.  It is all Biblical, it is historical.  We are NOW in Ezekiel 38, 39 and Joel 2.  The very same countries from Genesis to what is coming in Revelations in the mid east.   It is all about God and who HE is and man’s SIN nature.

This New Year of  2016, is the most important time in all of America’s history.  So please,  Christians know your Bible, know your history and vote.  If you aren’t gung ho to the candidate that wins the electorate?  It doesn’t matter, trust GOD.  If God can use a donkey, HE can raise up the one HE wants to save this country, else we will be doomed literally, and lose America as Europe is being lost to Islam.  We have one chance before the final war, one chance for redemption, one chance to repent of our arrogant ways, one chance to get it right and take Washington apart, for the shame we have caused God and our Founding Father’s.  We have ONE chance to DIE IN CHRIST FOR OUR NATION, OUR FAMILIES, AND OUR FRIENDS…ONE CHANCE ONLY.   John 3:3 “Unless a man be born again, he will not enter the Kingdom of God.”  We are at war.  God is about to close the doors as he has done throughout Bible history because of SIN!  Like Lot when God had him lead the people out of Sodom and Gomorrah.  God warned Lot’s wife not to look back in lust.  But she did, and as HE closed the door of the Ark, before the flood, so he turned Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt.  To die for Christ doesn’t come cheap.  We all come short and have to repent, and enter our prayer closets to seek HIS Holiness on us.  It is your choice.  For one day soon, it may be too late.  So is He Lord, Liar, or Lunatic?  He died because he took on YOUR sins, and will make you into HIS image, like the potter.  My prayers for all this New Year. Ask HIM, the only true Lord Almighty, Name Above ALL Names, into your life.   My prayers with you…My prayers with Israel and this nation I love.    What is happening is because of SIN…it is a HEART problem and there is only ONE who can pour out His love and change hearts….Jesus.  

We are to STAND with Israel!  PBS Frontline on Israel, its history and Bibi Netanyahu.  A must watch if we are to learn from history!

Merry Christmas 2015 In Jesus

unnamed

On this Christmas season, 2015, remember that is about the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who died on the CROSS for the sins of mankind.    Many today, do not want to acknowledge that there even is a sinful nature in all of us.  I am reminded of the song, Amazing Grace, ” how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.”  Many today do not want to acknowledge the even are a “wretch”.  But, in God’s eyes we all come short of the glory of God.

In this world, and our nation, now, with everything so out of control, and terrorism not even acknowledged by our leaders, there is only ONE who can give us sanity, and that is our Lord, Jesus Christ.  He is the I AM!  He is Lord of LORDS, KING OF KINGS….THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END….NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES!   And I give him all the glory and praises this season, as I for one could not live now in this selfish, pop culture, without HIM.

I pray for our Veterans, and their families, for those who are elderly, some in nursing homes, I pray for the homeless, and those without families, as well as those who have hardships and  faced  the death of a loved one, those who were victims of terrorism, those who have been maimed in wars, and in crimes, as well as their families.  I pray for the unsaved, that you may find Jesus Christ and call on HIM to save your soul this Christmas season.   I pray that each who reads this will have many blessings upon them, and learn the true meaning of what this season really means.   Lastly, I pray for our leaders in Washington, DC and ask that God give you wisdom in all your decisions.  I also pray for this election, and that the hand of God Almighty be on the candidate chosen.  Remember, HE loves you.    God bless you all.

Trump, The Left Media, And God

12243175_10153052406541601_7357163836331612042_nTrump is EXACTLY right. If those who still read and know history, Carter did the same thing with the Iranian Hostage Crisis, banning Muslims and Iranians. Yet, the hostages were not released until Reagan got into office, carrying a bigger stick. We have 3 Christian hostages in Iran now. The Saudi’s too are training terrorists. Going back to history, even Thomas Jefferson dealt with Muslims with the Barbary Pirates, as did Winston Churchill who ended in the early 1920’s the centuries old Ottoman Period. (Who Karly Firorino stupidly praised.)

Having studied Ancient Civilization in college, and also my Bible (Ezekiel 38 and 39 [now] which pertains to the whole mid east and what is happening, as well as Joel 2.} The object of all of the Koran is to take over all of Western Civilization. As now the Muslim Brotherhood is running this White House. Beware of what this President can do with his pen in this last year of office. While Egypt has outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood and put Morsi in jail. And France has outlawed and cracked down, now even banning Burka’s. What do we do? Stand stupidly with this “Politically Correct” threats coming from this White House calling us racist, while the left media blindly follows his lead. Trouble is no one reads anymore. And history ALWAYS repeats itself.

Now too, Merkel in Germany making decisions with these Islamists, much the way Hitler started out. If ever we needed a man like Trump, it is now! And I’m college educated, (unlike the left media says) and an evangelical Christian, who loves America and history. One who also believes we can turn this country around, and influence the world scene with leadership, morals, a good defense built back up, and an end to this left garbage, but most of all GOD back. I happen to believe that God is using Donald Trump. Only my opinion but, I see a few Christian main stream leaders, voicing the same. I hope someone reads this, and goes to the truth here about Islam.

ISLAM:   https://jeworthen.wordpress.com/2014/03/18/islam-by-lehmann-3/                                                    http://freedomoutpost.com/2015/12/54996/                                                                                            http://freedomoutpost.com/2015/12/muslim-hospital-worker-in-ohio-calls-for-       beheading-of-us-soldiers-gets-this-instead/                                                                                                             http://norwegiandefenceleague.info/europe-news/item/253-france-mosques-closed-330-war-weapons-found-223-arrests

Franklin Graham Supports Trump’s Muslim ban: http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2015/December/Franklin-Graham-Supports-Trumps-Muslim-Ban?cpid=:ID:-6378-:DT:-2015-12-10-09:28:34-:US:-TW1-:CN:-CP1-:PO:-NC1-:ME:-SU1-:SO:-TW1-:SP:-NW1-:PF:-I

From Evangelist Prophet Rick Joyner:

“Everyone is hammering Donald Trump on his statement that he would ban the immigration of all Muslims until the government figures out what they’re (the gov) is doing. Some of these reactions were obviously from those who had not actually heard Trump’s speech, but I think it is going to hurt them a lot more than him. Let there be one more attack such as San Bernardino and what Trump recommended will sound moderate.

It is right to be concerned about our Muslim citizens, but we are at war, and the main point Trump was making is that our government needs to figure out what it’s doing. Very few Americans feel safe, and with one more attack the outrage at those who failed to protect us will be great.

The GOP establishment presidential candidates, and some lawmakers, bashed Trump the hardest because they said he was hurting the GOP brand. How do you hurt something that is already so close to zero? What has hurt the GOP brand has been weak, incompetent leadership. Almost no one doubts more attacks are likely, and with just one more those who are so worried about their brand will have done even more damage to it, and to their own futures. We are at war, and political correctness is one of the biggest factors that has put us in the jeopardy we’re now in.”  Morning Star Ministries

THAT statement by Rick Joyner echoes all through our Christian Community.  The GOP is broken, most from Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Rubio, Kasich, and of course Christy are ALL Socialists.  I don’t want the Establishment.  They make deals with the left and their really isn’t much difference from what we’ve had in the White House.  God has been taken out of everything.  Sin is no more.   And I’ll tell the media this:  WHAT IS WRONG IN AMERICA, ISN’T DUE TO RACE RELATIONS, HOMOPHOBIA, WHITE POLICE OFFICERS TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB, ALL THE VIOLENCE – IT IS A HEART PROBLEM.  AND ISLAM ISN’T THE ANSWER IT IS A FALSE RELGION BORN 560 YEARS AFTER CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ALL THAT IS GOING ON IS A HEART PROBLEM.  AND THE ONLY CURE, IS REPENTANCE, AND THE CROSS! 

Excerpt from a book out by Thomas Horn & Chris Putnam “On the Path of the Immortals”          61X4kmBFmCL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Who are the immortals? Prophetically is the significance of Genesis 6:5. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0990497453keywords=Thomas%20Horn%20and%20Chris%20Putnam&qid=1449842982&ref_=sr_1_1&s=books&sr=1-1

It is said:  “1. Islam will use weapons of mass destruction.  2. Pope Francis will call out for Christian power of the call of war. (Referring to what is to come in the end times.)  3. Remember 1948? The fig tree blossomed …all the birth of the Revivals, from Billie Brim, Katherine Kullman, and the Messianic revival of Jews; the huge move of God in the 70’s and 80’s.  4. The call for us as Christians, is as never before! ”

I believe the greatest Revival of all times is going to move across this great America, with such an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, that it will be EVIDENT, to ALL the secular media and Muslims in America, who the REAL God really is.  There will be signs, and wonders, and an outpouring such as we have never seen before.  THIS IS MY CRY…THIS IS MY DESIRE, THUS SAITH THE LORD THY GOD!  Any Amens?     “If my people shall humble themselves and call out my name, THEN will I heal their land. ” II Chronicles 7:14

NOW:  EZEKIEL 38:2 “Son of man, “set thy face against Gog the land of Magog, (Russia) the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (Turkey), and prophesy against him. 3. And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold , I AM AGAINST THEE O GOG, the chief prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal. 4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring forth, and all thine army, horses, and horsemen, all of them clothed in all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 5. Persia (Iran) Ethiopia, and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet.” (All going against Israel…but God will protect Israel…and open up the earth and swallow her enemies up  with earthquakes and flames from Heaven…)  

Revelations 13 Talks about the 10 horns, that represent the European Union.  And I saw a beast rise up…(out of an Islamic nation) …The leopard refers sto the EU, the bear Russia,  and the lion, I always thought was China, but, now some have said the UK, because their crest is the lion.   And the dragon gave him his power.  ..The Antichrist I believe with others is alive on earth now.  Waiting to surge into power as the greatest peacemaker. And remember, GOD allowed Obama in this White House.  For since he got in, all of the Islamic nations, and trouble with Russia are in place.  

I say all this to warn and to shake up you want to be President in this White House.  We are going to see destruction, before the tribulation.  We are going to see violence as never before, as we are now.  America is out of control.  And we need I believe you, Donald Trump who needs to realize how much he is going to need God Almighty and be a praying man.  So my prayer to him now?  As John 3:3 says, “Unless a man be born again he will not enter the Kingdom of God. ” Mr Trump, I want you as our President.  I also want to see God’s hand on you so profoundly, that in these end times, as God has set nation against nation,  and used the depravity of Obama’s misguided ideologies, the only way you are going to make it work THIS TIME… is not as the Apprentice, but as an ANNOINTED LEADER WITH THE HAND OF GOD ALMIGHTY ON YOU.  I PRAY THAT YOU ACCEPT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN A PERSONAL PRAYER AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.  FOR WITH ALL RESPECT SIR…RELIGION DOESN’T CUT IT.  YOU WILL NEED HIM, MORE THAN ADVISORS, FOR ONLY HE CAN SET THE CAPTIVES FREE, GIVE YOU GODLY DIRECTION AND ANNOINT THE OFFICE THAT YOU WILL TAKE.  THIS IS MY PRAYER.. And to the media?  You know not who and what you are up against.  For this President Obama, has put a curse on himself, and Judgment from God on America. 

I beg you to pray this Salvation Prayer, as John 3:3, 3:16 says, no man enters Heaven without salvation.  Mr. Trump you may be a Presbyterian, but “religion” won’t cut it.  You need the Lord as your personal savior, so that you may talk and pray one on one with HIM.  “Dear Lord, I repent of any sins that I may have had in my life, and ask you to save my soul and put your hands on me so that I may succeed in what YOU want for me.  (Thine will be done ,Lord’s Prayer, not ours). I ask that you give me divine wisdom, and come into my heart, and pour YOUR anointing on me Lord, in Jesus name.   I ask that I have your blessings in all I do, and that includes the love of America and Israel.  Please come into my life. If you are with me Lord, we can turn this country around.  Thank you Lord  for saving my soul.”

Thank you Jesus…Use me Lord, as I am your servant.  Amen.
