History and it’s relevance to America, and God with our Founding Father’s.

Nationalism

 

                             PREFACE

America has now swerved so deep to the left and not only Socialism but, back to the once defeated Communism.  The premise of a One World Order has been preempting our political arena for more than 50 years.  Ayn Rand had something, in her “Atlas Shrugged” book more than 55 years ago, predicting all that has happened and is taking place in politics now.  For that matter so did Dwight Eisenhower.  Before you can give advice to a fix, you need to understand totally what we are up against.  Hates are prevalent all around us.  And the last step that will happen is an outright civil war, if we don’t find a remedy.

Nationalism definition:

“Nationalism is a political, social, and economic system characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation, especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining sovereignty over the homeland. The political ideology of nationalism holds that a nation should govern itself, free from outside interference and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national identity based on shared, social characteristics, such as culture and language, religion and politics, and a belief in a common ancestry. Nationalism, therefore, seeks to preserve a nation’s culture, by way of pride in national achievements, and is closely linked to patriotism, which, in some cases, includes the belief that the nation should control the country’s government and the means of production. ” Wiki

The following are some really good insights on America today, and what we can do about it, as well as sources.  Conservatives? Christians? We need to delve deep. THAT is you all younger than I am 50’s and younger.  And I beg you to put the cell phones down and READ!! Please else we will lose America!

“America’s Cold Civil War

Charles R. Kesler is the Dengler-Dykema Distinguished Professor of Government at Claremont McKenna College and editor of the Claremont Review of Books. He earned his bachelor’s degree in social studies and his A.M. and Ph.D. in government from Harvard University. A senior fellow at the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy and a recipient of the 2018 Bradley Prize, he is the editor of several books, including Keeping the Tablets: Modern American Conservative Thought (with William F. Buckley Jr.), and the author of I Am the Change: Barack Obama and the Future of Liberalism.

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered at Hillsdale College on September 27, 2018, during a two-week teaching residency as a Eugene C. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Journalism.

Six years ago I wrote a book about Barack Obama in which I predicted that modern American liberalism, under pressures both fiscal and philosophical, would either go out of business or be forced to radicalize. If it chose the latter, I predicted, it could radicalize along two lines: towards socialism or towards an increasingly post-modern form of leadership. Today it is doing both. As we saw in Bernie Sanders’ campaign, the youngest generation of liberals is embracing socialism openly—something that would have been unheard of during the Cold War. At the same time, identity politics is on the ascendant, with its quasi-Nietzschean faith in race, sex, and power as the keys to being and meaning. In the #MeToo movement, for example—as we saw recently in Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle—the credo is, “Believe the woman.” In other words, truth will emerge not from an adversarial process weighing evidence and testimony before the bar of reason, but from yielding to the will of the more politically correct. “Her truth” is stronger than any objective or disinterested truth.

In the Claremont Review of Books, we have described our current political scene as a cold civil war. A cold civil war is better than a hot civil war, but it is not a good situation for a country to be in. Underlying our cold civil war is the fact that America is torn increasingly between two rival constitutions, two cultures, two ways of life.

Political scientists sometimes distinguish between normal politics and regime politics. Normal politics takes place within a political and constitutional order and concerns means, not ends. In other words, the ends or principles are agreed upon; debate is simply over means. By contrast, regime politics is about who rules and for what ends or principles. It questions the nature of the political system itself. Who has rights? Who gets to vote? What do we honor or revere together as a people? I fear America may be leaving the world of normal politics and entering the dangerous world of regime politics—a politics in which our political loyalties diverge more and more, as they did in the 1850s, between two contrary visions of the country.

One vision is based on the original Constitution as amended. This is the Constitution grounded in the natural rights of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution written in 1787 and ratified in 1788. It has been transmitted to us with significant Amendments—some improvements and some not—but it is recognizable still as the original Constitution. To simplify matters we may call this “the conservative Constitution”—with the caveat that conservatives have never agreed perfectly on its meaning and that many non-conservatives remain loyal to it.
The other vision is based on what Progressives and liberals, for 100 years now, have called “the living Constitution.” This term implies that the original Constitution is dead—or at least on life support—and that in order to remain relevant to our national life, the original Constitution must be infused with new meaning and new ends and therefore with new duties, rights, and powers. To cite an important example, new administrative agencies must be created to circumvent the structural limitations that the original Constitution imposed on government.
As a doctrine, the living Constitution originated in America’s new departments of political and social science in the late nineteenth century—but it was soon at the very forefront of Progressive politics. One of the doctrine’s prime formulators, Woodrow Wilson, had contemplated as a young scholar a series of constitutional amendments to reform America’s national government into a kind of parliamentary system—a system able to facilitate faster political change. But he quickly realized that his plan to amend the Constitution was going nowhere. Plan B was the living Constitution. While keeping the outward forms of the old Constitution, the idea of a living Constitution would change utterly the spirit in which the Constitution was understood.

The resulting Constitution—let us call it “the liberal Constitution”—is not a constitution of natural rights or individual human rights, but of historical or evolutionary right. Wilson called the spirit of the old Constitution Newtonian, after Isaac Newton, and that of the new Constitution Darwinian, after Charles Darwin. By Darwinian, Wilson meant that instead of being difficult to amend, the liberal Constitution would be easily amenable to experimentation and adjustment. To paraphrase the late Walter Berns, the point of the old Constitution was to keep the times in tune with the Constitution; the purpose of the new is to keep the Constitution in tune with the times.

Until the 1960s, most liberals believed it was inevitable that their living Constitution would replace the conservative Constitution through a kind of slow-motion evolution. But during the sixties, the so-called New Left abandoned evolution for revolution, and partly in reaction to that, defenders of the old Constitution began not merely to fight back, but to call for a return to America’s first principles. By seeking to revolve back to the starting point, conservatives proved to be Newtonians after all—and also, in a way, revolutionaries, since the original meaning of revolution is to return to where you began, as a celestial body revolves in the heavens.
The conservative campaign against the inevitable victory of the living Constitution gained steam as a campaign against the gradual or sudden disappearance of limited government and of republican virtue in our political life. And when it became clear, by the late 1970s and 1980s, that the conservatives weren’t going away, the cold civil war was on.

***

Confronted by sharper, deeper, and more compelling accounts of the conservative Constitution, the liberals had to sharpen—that is, radicalize—their own alternative, following the paths paved by the New Left. As a result, the gap between the liberal and conservative Constitutions became a gulf, to the extent that today we are two countries—or we are fast on the road to becoming two countries—each constituted differently.

Consider a few of the contrasts. The prevailing liberal doctrine of rights traces individual rights to membership in various groups—racial, ethnic, gender, class-based, etc.—which are undergoing a continual process of consciousness-raising and empowerment. This was already a prominent feature of Progressivism well over a century ago, though the groups have changed since then. Before Woodrow Wilson became a politician, he wrote a political science textbook, and the book opened by asking which races should be studied. Wilson answered: we’ll study the Aryan race, because the Aryan race is the one that has mastered the world. The countries of Europe and the Anglophone countries are the conquerors and colonizers of the other continents. They are the countries with the most advanced armaments, arts, and sciences.
Wilson was perhaps not a racist in the full sense of the term, because he expected the less advanced races over time to catch up with the Aryan race. But his emphasis was on group identity—an emphasis that liberals today retain, the only difference being that the winning and losing sides have been scrambled. Today the white race and European civilization are the enemy—“dead white males” is a favored pejorative on American campuses—and the races and groups that were oppressed in the past are the ones that today need compensation, privileges, and power.

Conservatives, by contrast, regard the individual as the quintessential endangered minority. They trace individual rights to human nature, which lacks a race. Human nature also lacks ethnicity, gender, and class. Conservatives trace the idea of rights to the essence of an individual as a human being. We have rights because we’re human beings with souls, with reason, distinct from other animals and from God. We’re not beasts, but we’re not God—we’re the in-between being. Conservatives seek to vindicate human equality and liberty—the basis for majority rule in politics—against the liberal Constitution’s alternative, in which everything is increasingly based on group identity.

There is also today a vast divergence between the liberal and conservative understandings of the First Amendment. Liberals are interested in transforming free speech into what they call equal speech, ensuring that no one gets more than his fair share. They favor a redistribution of speech rights via limits on campaign contributions, repealing the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and narrowing the First Amendment for the sake of redistribution of speech rights from the rich to the poor. Not surprisingly, the Democratic Party’s 2016 platform called for amending the First Amendment!

There is, of course, also a big difference between the liberal Constitution’s freedom from religion and the conservative Constitution’s freedom of religion. And needless to say, the liberal Constitution has no Second Amendment.

In terms of government structure, the liberal Constitution is designed to overcome the separation of powers and most other checks and balances. Liberals consistently support the increased ability to coordinate, concentrate, and enhance government power—as opposed to dividing, restricting, or checking it. This is to the detriment of popular control of government. In recent decades, government power has flowed mainly through the hands of unelected administrators and judges—to the point that elected members of Congress find themselves increasingly dispirited and unable to legislate. As the Financial Times put it recently, “Congress is a sausage factory that has forgotten how to make sausages.”

***
If one thinks about how America’s cold civil war could be resolved, there seem to be only five possibilities. One would be to change the political subject. Ronald Reagan used to say that when the little green men arrive from outer space, all of our political differences will be transcended and humanity will unite for the first time in human history. Similarly, if some jarring event intervenes—a major war or a huge natural calamity—it might reset our politics.
A second possibility, if we can’t change the subject, is that we could change our minds. Persuasion, or some combination of persuasion and moderation, might allow us to end or endure our great political division. Perhaps one party or side will persuade a significant majority of the electorate to embrace its Constitution, and thus win at the polling booth and in the legislature. For generations, Republicans have longed for a realigning election that would turn the GOP into America’s majority party. This remains possible, but seems unlikely. Only two presidents in the twentieth century were able to effect enduring changes in American public opinion and voting patterns—Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. FDR inspired a political realignment that lasted for a generation or so and lifted the Democratic Party to majority status. Ronald Reagan inspired a realignment of public policy, but wasn’t able to make the GOP the majority party.

Since 1968, the norm in America has been divided government: the people have more often preferred to split control of the national government between the Democrats and the Republicans rather than entrust it to one party. This had not previously been the pattern in American politics. Prior to 1968, Americans would almost always (the exceptions proved the rule) entrust the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the Presidency to the same party in each election. They would occasionally change the party, but still they would vote for a party to run the government. Not so for the last 50 years. And neither President Obama nor President Trump, so far, has persuaded the American electorate to embrace his party as their national representative, worthy of long-term patriotic allegiance.

Trump, of course, is new to this, and his party in Congress is basically pre-Trumpian. He did not win the 2016 election by a very large margin, and he was not able to bring many new Republicans into the House or the Senate. Nonetheless, he has the opportunity now to put his mark on the party. In trying to do so, his populism—which is not a word he uses—will not be enough. He will have to reach out to the existing Republican Party as he has done, adopt some of its agenda, adopt its electoral supporters, and gradually bring them around to his “America first” conservatism if he is to have any chance of achieving a political realignment. And the odds remain against him at this point.

As for moderating our disagreements and learning to live with them more or less permanently, that too seems unlikely given their fundamental nature and the embittered trajectory of our politics over the last two decades.

So if we won’t change our minds, and if we can’t change the subject, we are left with only three other ways out of the cold civil war. The happiest of the three would be a vastly reinvigorated federalism. One of the original reasons for constitutional federalism was that the states had a variety of interests and views that clashed with one another and could not be pursued in common. If we had a re-flowering of federalism, some of the differences between blue states and red states could be handled discreetly by the states themselves. The most disruptive issues could be denationalized. The problem is, having abandoned so much of traditional federalism, it is hard to see how federalism could be revived at this late juncture.

That leaves two possibilities. One, alas, is secession, which is a danger to any federal system—something about which James Madison wrote at great length in The Federalist Papers. With any federal system, there is the possibility that some states will try to leave it. The Czech Republic and Slovakia have gone their separate ways peacefully, just within the last generation. But America is much better at expansion than contraction. And George Washington’s admonitions to preserve the Union, I think, still miraculously somehow linger in our ears. So secession would be extremely difficult for many reasons, not the least of which is that it could lead, as we Americans know from experience, to the fifth and worst possibility: hot civil war.
Under present circumstances, the American constitutional future seems to be approaching some kind of crisis—a crisis of the two Constitutions. Let us pray that we and our countrymen will find a way to reason together and to compromise, allowing us to avoid the worst of these dire scenarios—that we will find, that is, the better angels of our nature.”

Selling Out America’s Choice

The media, McCain funeral, and elitist Washington, who blatantly sold out our sitting President. It is abhorrent, that the “peoples” choice, should be viewed as intolerant of this man as the “career” politicians, and Communist/Socialist left media, many receiving donation from Soros too.

I find, Meghan McCain’s remarks as cutting, hateful words, when this President’s daughter Ivanka and her husband were right in the audience; with selfish avarice not one thought went to her and how those words would cut at her heart. We reap what we sow, Meghan. But your hates, and others around you such as Obama’s,
in his Godless, selfish false political ideologies will eat you up all the way to hell.

McCain was afforded a week of pomp and celebration of life, that this President
bequeathed upon him along with General Kelly. Such a celebration is usually only
afforded to Presidents, which McCain was not. NOR according to PBS’s Frontline
last week was he a hero, when in fact the Vietnamese vehemently denied that he
was ever tortured and his injuries were from bailing out of his plane. Hates will eat
you up alive! This man though just died, so I ask God to please forgive me of my
comments, yet, the truths shall set you free. You see I don’t hold “any” man up as
an idol to worship, I only hold one up, his name is Jesus Christ! And GOD after all is the final judge.

I loved my father too, but, I don’t know if he was saved, and there is a possibility that he was not. I did not come to the Cross and salvation until after he died. We
had “church” just like the McCain’s when I grew up. We all “believed in God,” but, the salvation message was never preached in my old Congregational church. But John 3:3 says “Unless a man be born again, he will not enter the kingdom of God.”Period. And there are two Judgments, The Great White Throne Judgment Seat of God when all we who are saved, will be judged on our works..WHAT we did for the Kingdom of God (not the kingdom of self, and pompous selfish acts.) The second judgment is the judgment of all those who did not give their hearts to Christ, the unrepentant, the murderers, the liars, and hell servers of false religions,
and haters of God; before they get cast into hell. And they shall burn for eternity.
And many disbelievers, mockers like the Communist Jew, George Soros, will one day see the error of his ways selling America and God his God of Abraham out!! MY word! HE is in charge, not me. So my question, now remains, did McCain ever repent, or stay in his hostile self-righteousness? For I know of only one President too, who did get saved, (other than President Trump) Lyndon Johnson, who got led to the Lord by Billie Graham. Nixon too, in his pomp self-righteousness refused. JFK and Bobbie were Catholic and prolife, but saved? Maybe. We don’t know and won’t until we reach Heaven. And I hate to tell you Schumer, you too will be thou judged! But Meghan instead of lashing out in hate you should have spoken in Gods love (at a funeral?) and forgiveness! We reap what we sow. The way you treat others’ so will God treat you. And trust me, He exists! There is a Heaven, there is a Hell!

So, this gives us all something to ponder. And your own legacies you leave
behind. I backed and voted for John McCain way back mainly because of
Sarah Palin, who I love. But, even she was banned. Proverbs says, “Boast
not thyself, but let another do it.” John McCain, held himself up higher than
any God. So in fact do Barack Obama, as an evangelical, having written to
him once, my letter was ridiculed in the media. Communist ideologies, lying,
vying for control, and a society other than our Founding Father’s and God
Almighty, will not get you to Heaven.

So, I ask you Senator Graham, at what price, is this love for a man that did a
lot to hurt people. Cause, no America, through the last 40 years was not so hot
or great!! But, God will, it will be, for this President is God’s choice, and will
do HIS will and the will of us American’s who voted for him. Not pacs, or
special interests, or the hates of the world. And I ask you the media, how long
are you going play at this charade? What are you going to do when my President
of choice gets elected again in 2020?

THIS country needs to heal. And Meghan, neither you or your father have done
one thing to that goal, and neither have you Schumer or your left followers or the
Socialist pundits on the news. I watched a wonderful message on Daystar with
Joni Lamb, TD Jakes, and Robert Morris on race, which I cried through the whole
hour. And Obama you are wrong too. All your hates. So this is for you, and your
Chicago, for Meghan, and all you haters..no matter what color. You see, Obama,
I didn’t like you, not because of color, but your reading of your own book on
YouTube, your Communist ideologies. I have a Black grandson, 24, and God
I only wish I had input to his life and mistake he’s making.

Robert said, “Hating someone in another race, (or anyone) is feeling superior. And
Prejudice towards another race or otherwise, is judgment (McCain to Trump) and
its PreJUDAS! 1. Racism is pure evil, so is hating another. Romans 12:1 It’s the devil. 2. Pure Self-righteousnesss ..is evil. 3. It violates the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:19 4. It violates the Commandments. John 13:34-35 5. Racism/hates
violates the Blood at the CROSS! Acts 17:26 6. It questions GOD’S plan..
Revelation 5:9 (To REDEEM) 7. Racism/hates questions GOD and DEFIES HIM!
John 3:16

For those hates like my President Donald Trump has endured? God is with him. And God also is the FINAL VINDICATOR, Judge , and jury. Romans being the
book of laws! “If” as I know we evangelicals all through America, believe that
this President was chosen by GOD himself, HE will vindicate him, against all the
hates, the media, and including Mueller. I have no doubt that God will raise him
up and an army who will back him, to clean out this Washington DC swamp! The
swamp ALL of you elitist’s, George W. Bush, H.W Bush, (who I voted for) the
Clintons, and Obama’s, ALL had a hand in making evil, and crooked, including
Our FBI. If God be for you, man cannot be against you. Like the days of Moses
when God opened up the seas…I believe in miracles, and I believe the righteous
will prevail. I also believe in His judgments and the fires in CA are such. And
I also believe the Tribulation is around the corner. I tweeted to you once George
W. that you should call up and make up with this President. You do not know
the gracious generous Trump only headlines that are leaked and crooked. But,
that is pride! And God hates pride. You see only God has the right to hate.

“If my people who call out my name shall humble themselves and repent…then
I will heal thy land”. Romans 8:24 “I shall not keep silent.”

PS And I just received this via email.  So while Egypt declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization and put Morsi in jail, John McCain helped Obama make them legitimate in America. He knew nothing about the Bible or prophesies, or God’s plan, nor did he care.  He sold America out.  And all those 23 Muslim camps Obama let it the US? McCain knew just like the one just busted in New Mexico. God is the final judge.

The Abrahamic Covenant with Israel

GENESIS CHAPTER 12 (1921 B.C.)

1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram (referring to the Revelation which had been given to the Patriarch a short time before; this Chapter is very important, for it records the first steps of this great Believer in the path of Faith), Get thee out of your country (separation), and from your kindred (separation), and from your father’s house (Separation-UR in Iraq up north where the Tigress and Euphrates meet, which is where Abraham was born. ) unto a land that I will show you (refers to the fact that Abraham had no choice in the matter; he was to receive his orders from the Lord, and go where those orders led him).

2 And I will make of you a great Nation (the Nation which God made of Abraham has changed the world, and exists even unto this hour; in fact, this Nation “Israel” still has a great part to play, which will take place in the coming Kingdom Age), and I will bless you, and make your name great (according to Scripture, “to bless” means “to increase;” the builders of the Tower of Babel sought to “make us a name,” whereas God took this man, who forsook all, and “made his name great”); and you shall be a blessing: (Concerns itself with the greatest blessing of all. It is the glory of Abraham’s Faith. God would give this man the meaning of Salvation, which is “Justification by Faith,” which would come about through the Lord.

3 And I will bless them who bless you (to bless Israel, or any Believer, for that matter, guarantees the Blessings of God, (AMERICA!) and curse him who curses you (EU –Palestine!)
to curse Israel, or any Believer, guarantees that one will be cursed by God): and in you shall all families of the Earth be blessed. (It speaks of Israel, which sprang from the loins of Abraham and the womb of Sarah, giving the world the Word of God and, more particularly, bringing the Messiah into the world. Through Christ, every family in the world who desires blessing from God can have that Blessing.

4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him (this was his first surrender; there were seven in all: 1. He surrenders here his native land; 2. He surrenders his family; 3. He then surrenders the vale of the Jordan; He then surrenders the riches of Sodom;

5. He surrenders self;

6. He then surrenders Ishmael; and lastly,

7. He surrenders Isaac; each painful surrender was followed by increased spiritual wealth); and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran (the Holy Spirit notes Abraham’s age upon his departure, signifying that the revelation may have come several years earlier).

*** The land God gave Abraham, included what is Palestine now, Jordan, and half of Syria. What is Iraq now was MESOPOTAMIA, the very first civilization. Iraq was sacred, and we never should have gone in. (My opinion as others.) What is now Mosul, Iraq was then Nineveh, the Assyrian City. And Jesus also spoke Assyrian. South West Iraq was Babylon, the Tower of Babel, and King Nebuchadnezzar’s hanging gardens. Up north in Iraq was a flat plateau of monks that had been there for 2,000 years with scrolls, many that became lost when GW Bush sent in troops and the fighting with ISIS. Not to mention so many antiquities that were destroyed!

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. (From Haran to Canaan was approximately 350 miles. Abraham had 318 trained men with him [14:14], meaning that they were trained to fight as soldiers. In fact, there may have been as many as a thousand people in this entourage.)

6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. (Abraham finds the hateful, impure, and hostile Canaanite in God’s land. That being an example, the young Believer expects after conversion to find nothing in his nature hostile to Christ, but is distressed and perplexed very soon to painfully learn that, alas, the Canaanite is in the land, and that he is now commencing a lifelong battle with what the New Testament calls “the flesh.” — Williams)

7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram (though the hostile Canaanite was in the land, the Lord was there as well), and said, Unto your seed will I give this land (the “seed” through Isaac, and not Ishmael; Satan has contested this Promise from the very beginning, with the struggle continuing even unto this hour, as it regards Israel and the Palestinians): and there built he an Altar unto the LORD, Who appeared unto him. (The “Altar” and its Sacrifice represented the Lord)

8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Beth el, and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai on the east (“Beth-el” means “House of God,” while “Hai” means “the heap of ruins”): and there he built an Altar unto the LORD, and called upon the Name of the LORD.

9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south (“south” was toward Egypt, which direction Abraham should not have gone). ABRAM’S SOJOURN IN EGYPT 10 And there was a famine in the land (a famine in God’s land? it was allowed by the Lord as a test of Faith, as everything for the Believer is a test of Faith): and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there (the Lord didn’t call Abram to Egypt, but rather to Canaan; better to starve in Canaan, than to live in luxury in Egypt); for the famine was grievous in the land.

*THIS is the COVENENT! THERE WAS NO PALESTINE!! THIS WAS BEFORE EVEN THE BIRTH OF
ISHMAEL AND ISAAC !!! ISRAEL IS NOT AN OCCUPIER, THEY OWN THIS LAND!!! PERIOD!
*see from Sheikh below:

PALESTINE DOES NOT BELONG TO THE ARABS AND THE JEWS ARE NOT OCCUPIERS OF ISRAEL!

https://www.haaretz.com/jordan-sheikh-claims-israel-belongs-to-jews-1.5324929

A Sheikh from Jordans prominent Adwan tribe said Israel belongs to the Jews and that Palestine claims to the territory is false. Sheikh Ahmed Aladoan of Amman, who made this remark based his assertions on the Koran, saying “those who distort the Koran are liars and questioned the origins of the word of Palestine.
“Allah is the protector of the Children of Israel”, he insisted, saying there was no such place as Palestine in early history.  The Muslim cleric also Palestine of violence saying that they kill children, the elderly, and women that they hide behind human shields and have no mercy for their own children.   Last year Sheikh Aladoan came to Israel and paid a visit Safed Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu . The visit filmed by Orot TV in Israel. Saying “there is no name “Palestine for this land” in the Koran and that Arabs should not therefore fight for that land. “

*Genesis 12 and 13, God gave that land to Abraham and the Jews through Isaac. At that time the land not only included Israel, but what is now called “Palestine, Jordan, and half of Syria.” To the Arabs, through Ishmael, when Sarah banned him and Hagar his Egyptian mother to the desert, God gave oil.

I have this book, the Bible as History, which is fascinating. Much information from finds and
Archeology that bears out scripture and the Bible as truths.

 

Mesopotamia
Mesopotamia refers to an ancient region of south west Asia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in modern-day Iraq. The region’s location and fertility gave rise to settlements some 10,000 years ago, and it became the cradle of some of the world’s earliest civilizations and the birthplace of writing. It was first settled by the Sumerians, who were succeeded by the Akkadians and later by the Babylonians. During the course of history, it become a part of almost every major empire. Since Mesopotamia was home to so many nations. Perhaps as old as 10,000 years BC as Antarctica.

 

Babylon

The Sumerians and Akkadians (including Assyrians and Babylonians) dominated Mesopotamia from the beginning of written history (c. 3100 BC) to the fall of Babylon in 539 BC, when it was conquered by the Achaemenid Empire. It fell to Alexander the Great in 332 BC, and after his death, it became part of the Greek Seleucid Empire.

Around 150 BC, Mesopotamia was under the control of the Parthian Empire. Mesopotamia became a battleground between the Romans and Parthians, with western parts of Mesopotamia coming under ephemeral Roman control. In AD 226, the eastern regions of Mesopotamia fell to the Sassanid Persians. The division of Mesopotamia between Roman (Byzantine from AD 395) and Sassanid Empires lasted until the 7th century Muslim conquest of Persia of the Sasanian Empire and Muslim conquest of the Levant from Byzantines. A number of primarily neo-Assyrian and Christian native Mesopotamian states existed between the 1st century BC and 3rd century AD, including Adiabene, Osroene, and Hatra.

Mesopotamia is the site of the earliest developments of the Neolithic Revolution from around 10,000 BC. It has been identified as having “inspired some of the most important developments in human history including the invention of the wheel, the planting of the first cereal crops and the development of cursive script, mathematics, astronomy and agriculture. From Wikipedia
In Julius Caesar’s time, Rome was in complete control of Italy, with provinces scattered around the entire Mediterranean and tributary kingdoms further inland. Julius went on to consolidate Gaul, had a look at Britain and hated its weather, and was preparing to do in the Parthian empire when done in by his protegee Brutus and other conspirators. However the Roman Empire was long in place before he was born. Look for a long list of conquerors, with names like Scipio, Paulus, Sulla. *Remember that the Antichrist is coming out of the Old Roman Empire.

*** During the 1400’s into the 1500’s also was history with the Borgia’s.
Rodrigo Borgia, who bought his way to become Pope Alexander VI,
including having his own marriage annulled with two sons, and one
daughter Lucrecia. He too filled the Vatican with his mistresses openly.
During this time too, Mary Queen of Scots had been placed as a child
in France by her mother for safety. Prince Francis and she fell in love and
married young, But, Francis died of an illness very young, at which time,
Mary went to her native Scotland. History bore out the struggle with her
half-sister Elizabeth Queen of England. Elizabeth’s hatred of Mary, was
overwhelming and didn’t want her to reign in Scotland fearing she would
take over England. Eventually Mary was captured and kept in the tower of
the palace in England for over 20 years, before Elizabeth had her beheaded.
As in 1534 below, Henry the VIII denounced the Catholic church and had
one of his wives Ann Bolin beheaded on false charges so he could remarry,
making himself England’s head of the church, which ushered in Protestants.
Thus we see the anarchy and vie for power and wars that ensued.

Growing In God

There are two ways a believer can establish or strengthen his heart, either by grace or works.  For a new Christian just recently saved, they have not naturally  had the teachings that many of us have had after being saved for 15-20 years plus.  So, we refer to these new Christians as baby Christians, still on milk. When they have walked in the Lord for some time, and received “with a humble spirit” the teachings of Christ, we say they are now on meat.  Which refers to the special offerings which the priests ate.  Hebrews 13:9.  “For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace, not with meats, which have  not profited them that have been occupied therein. ”  They had no right to eat that which was served in the tabernacle. The Jewish Christians who were the first recipients of the epistle understood the Hebraism of  “meats” to refer to the ceremonial rituals, etc. of Levitical law.

Then it goes on to say that it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace. Hebrews makes it clear that good works does not get you into Heaven; which may be as a “works mentality” , because God still requires good works, Ephesians 2:10 which result from His working THROUGH His people.  Two things to notice about legalistic works or “dead” works in Hebrews 6:1, 9-14 are that works do not profit and  works “occupy”.  So when we are a work-a-holic or always have an excuse, “I don’t have time”, “I don’t feel like it now”. Is it dead  works by self, and self-imposed or is it works by grace and the power of God? Do we let God lead us through His Holy Spirit and HIS work, or are we always still in the world doing our own thing in self?  Are we serving? Or being served?  We all have certain gifts and we all can be used in some way for our church.

Legalism is a futile effort.  They have such misguided regulations which have never proven useful and place so much dependence on doing this “this” way or faultfinding, etc. that they derive no benefit.  A works mentality does not promote true godliness. Martin Luther found that out too, as a Catholic monk scrubbing the abbey floors not receiving salvation.  Being bound in legalism, it produces an unloving Christian, that becomes judgmental and harsh.  It is mans attempts to be like God.   It doesn’t  work.   It stops grace and mercy from manifesting  and brings on a critical spirit.  We can try, through our own law of works, self-efforts, or various exercises to fulfill through human ability the righteousness of God’s word in our lives.  Maybe we start out in earnest, but our means of going about it are all wrong.

We’ve all sooner or later too, been around Christians that are always complaining and have a critical spirit.  There is no balance.  If we all have certain gifts, which I believe we do, then we should know when to absorb the good and spit out the bad.  We should learn discernment and have it in our  lives in all things.  If there are new Christians that are not yet that deep in the Lord, and prayer then they cannot be expected to receive as we do.  Sometimes you really get it!  One day it will click and the message will be understood.  That is like a lightbulb going on..a real breakthrough.

When I was new in Christ, I wanted it all fast!  Doesn’t work that way and is a long process as our emotional development lets God work IN us and through us, And if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise works is no more works.  Romans 11-16.  If we mix grace and works it is a like comparison to water and oil, then through law, whereby, Christ died at the Cross needlessly and in vain.  If right living comes by SELF, then He lives needlessly inside you and you give credit to your OWN righteousness.  We begin our Christian walk by grace and HIS mercy that loved us, and it should continue on in our walk through God and the Holy Spirit in our lives in LOVE.  Why can’t we learn to be humble and receive HIS love and grace, to then let go of that love and give in return.  That’s what its about.  The love we receive is nothing unless we give it away.

Grace strengthens us. Although the law was holy, coming from God, it was weak through human nature and our sinfulness.  Romans 8:3.  Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me all who are heavy laden , and I will give you rest. ”  Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your soul. All our struggles in the natural.. For what?  Self? For I can do nothing on my own in the natural including saving my own son from suicide in spite of all I did.  God had a divine plan and sometimes it may no be what we want or expect either.

We live now in a violent, sick, vile society.  Not just the media, and all the shootings, but the psychic sick books and video games as well.  Whereby, James 1:14 says, “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed.” This is why Jesus in overcoming temptation to avoid the Cross, prayed, “Not my will but THINE will be done” Luke 22:42.  For he told the disciples a short while earlier to “pray, that ye enter not into temptation.  Matthew 26:41.

In other words, just because you are a Christian and accepted Jesus as your Savior don’t think that everything will be perfect and you cannot get enticed into temptation.  I Corinthians 6:13 says, “Now the body is not for lust but for the Lord”.  Our bodies to be the “temple of God”.

SALVATION

Something always spoke to me,                                                                                                                   Something always loved me,                                                                                                                         Something needed me…so                                                                                                                           Much I didn’t know.

Somehow He spoke His love,                                                                                                                         Somehow He drew me in,                                                                                                                             Someone who doubted so.                                                                                                                           How He loved, I didn’t know, I didn’t know.

God, you gave it all to me,                                                                                                                             Your love, your heart for man,                                                                                                                     Your very destiny,                                                                                                                                            God,  I need and love you so.

Something, I had arise in me,                                                                                                                       Something salvations pull on me,                                                                                                                 Something, I’ll always thank you for,                                                                                                           No matter  what,  I’ll love you so.

J. Worthen 1/2000

When we choose to surrender our will completely before God, and give up self and let the Holy Spirit guide us we are giving God humility.  This is what He wants for God loves a  humble  spirit.  If we hang onto self, it won’t work because of our sin nature from Adam  and the imperfection of human will power.  Proverbs 16:18-19 “Pride goes before the fall. God loves a  humble spirit.”

We can’t love with Gods agape love by ourselves.  We can’t be perfectly patient by  ourselves.  But with Jesus Christ within us we can!  He is ready, willing and able.  But, he will only take over the controls to the degree that we let  him.  I’ve done it in he natural, I’ve been around that mountain over and over.  No thank you, as the price is too high and so is the chastisement.  I wanted to grow in God in HIS  timetable, HIS way, as I am ready in my development in HIS word.  If we understand just that?  He will do the rest.  He wants us to have an “I’ll never give up attitude!”   That’s what will glorify those we meet and witness  to.  Humility and a total absence of self.

Sometimes God holds back because our prayers involve another person.  Maybe OUR plans and prayers are different  than God’s.  Maybe our prayers could have irreparable harm for another if we had our way, or they just aren’t ready.  We don’t know Gods reasoning.  He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever He does prospers. Psalm 1:1-3. For only He knows the future.  In this long life, with painful splits, and deaths, I got nothing I ever asked for, but, everything I needed, including healing and love. He and He alone holds all the keys.  Thank  you Lord for all you have  done for me.

Salvation And Misconceptions

Salvation I believe comes from a longing, a need, a hunger for something or someone else to be our rock (other than ourselves and the world) our fortress. A supernatural power with the promise of eternal life, we all need. We all want love, acceptance, and someone to care about us. Unfortunately, in our lives we cannot always depend on family, or one another.  It sometimes just doesn’t work out that way.  It took me many years of floundering trying to do things in the natural and self to finally understand.

I remember seeing preachers  on tv after crumbled  marriages, and my father’s death.  I watched one evangelist and didn’t know one iota of what he was preaching about.  I only knew that by that time I felt alone (with a toddler) and I needed desperately.  Whatever this man had, his faith, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, I wanted it all.  When he prayed that salvation message over the tv screen, I went down on my knees and accepted Christ as my savior.  Late when my daughter lay in the hospital after an accident, I say this preacher up in Portland Maine, and received prayer and confirmation.  From then on, I was born again, and my life began anew in Jesus.

Jesus Christ lived for thirty years as a young man who was a carpenter.  At the end of his thirty years, He was then called by God to start his public ministry.  He was baptized in the Holy Spirit and He fasted 40 days.  By the time of the Last Supper when he went up to the Mount of Olives in the Garden of Gethsemane, he was about to pay an agonizing prize.

The magnitude of that price was horrific. When he prayed Matthew 26:39 “Father, if it is possible take this cup away from me.”  But I want your will not mine.  He knew that He would have to suffer a tremendous physical price. As many beatings followed by a horrible, agonizing crucifixion.   Even worse, He knew the price that had to be paid in the spiritual realm.  Jesus, who had never sinned, knew that He had to actually become sin in order to pay the price for our sins.  “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us. So that in Him we might become the righteousness of God “.  II Corinthians 5:21.

His agony was so great that He actually sweat blood.  His blood vessels broke and blood was excreted through his sweat glands.  God sent an angel to strengthen Him.  Then an angel from heaven appeared and strengthened him, for he was in such agony of spirit that he broke into a sweat of blood, with great drops falling to the ground as he prayed more and more earnestly. Luke 22:43-44.  No one preaches the blood anymore.  The blood shed at the cross, Jesus life was sacrificed as the last blood offering.

Somehow, the impact of that hit me even harder with my sons suicide.  His life too, in misunderstandings was sacrificed unnecessarily.  I believe with all my heart that his blood cried out for justice and vindication of his bi-polar from the grave.  Those that have been murdered, or those victims in terrorist attacks, those children of sex slaves, dying, those who lost lives  on the battlefield.  Their blood cries out from the grave.  Because as I state later, death is not cheap with God!

We do not have a right to complain over our circumstances and wallow in self after we have become saved.  Jesus paid such a price for our sins. He died that we might live and live IN HIM.  None of us will ever be perfect as He in this lifetime…for we all come short.  But, we have no right to take  our salvation so lightly.  When we are saved, we must lose self.  It becomes, “THINE will be done!”  The Lord’s supper not ours!

If God is love, then WHY does He love us?   Because He IS love He cannot keep from loving us. He will love us no matter what.  None of us, in all our sins and problems are alien to Him, and that includes my 19 year old suicidal son, his baby half sister, just as much as my other children still alive.  He knew my BJ in my  womb, bi-polar and all.  When I consciously unsaved that night when he was conceived, I asked God, “am I doing the right thing?” He knew right then and there, all the problems that we would eventually face with his illness.  And he knew with my oldest as well, and the Greek heritage from my children’s father all the problems and all the estrangements that would ensue.

I believe God wants the best for us because he loves us.   I also believe that it is hard for women especially, who come out of various situations, to accept a loving God as their father, if they haven’t had that in the natural.  If you haven’t known a real earthly father, then you put a block of resistance to the magnitude of our Heavenly  Father.  I think this Is where a lot of churches fall in ministering to these people.  I just pray that one day this revelation gets taught. I thank God I  had a loving  early father.  It was easier for me, and I fought young, even feminism, and unsaved not to have victim thinking.   Poor me, me, me,  me , the world owes me, take , take, take. Wallow in self pity. I’ve seen it over and over.  Self esteem comes not just through a counseling process, but the enveloping compassion and joy of God the Father, as these women, who came out of abuse especially, are unable to trust again.

If you’ve ever been stabbed in the back, you’ll know where I’m coming from.  That friend, perhaps an ex employer, a spouse or ex.  When that little form of manipulation and control gets carried down with this little put down techniques, all the smooth talk, while behind your back they try to destroy you.  You cry yourself to sleep, “how could  he/she do this to me? ” They can’t sit down in the Spirit of Christ and work out their disagreements.  But, it’s impossible to be truly holy without honoring our Lord’s command that we love one another.  If you love God with all your heart, then you MUST love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22:37-40.  If a man say, I love God and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he that loves not who he has seen, how can he love God for whom he has not seen?

It is difficult therefore, to love others.  if we don’t love ourselves because as one once said on love being true only if it is given away.  Also one step further, if we don’t love ourselves, we can’t give away what we don’t have.  Then we becoming self-centered – always thinking about ourselves.  We need to balance that area of self and giving of self.   I have always been a giver, but, know in my spirit when God wants me alone.  Alone in HIM shutting everything else out.

Loving and obeying demands some “suffering in the flesh.” That is why so many today are growing cold. Matthew 24:12 Cold love is words without action.  Words are easy, but action requires a sacrifice. Remember hearing “talk is cheap?” Well love, is expensive if given away. True love costs something. They have to let go of the past and trust God with faith.  This is true of a lot of Christians and I believe that what we come out of sometimes stops the growth of God. But He will never forsake you and  will always be there to hold you up.  John 4:12 indicates when we love others, the love God has invested in us is finally doing what God intended all along.  Love is not complete until it is flowing back to others.

Some that are Christians are so afraid to witness the Lord to the lost.  But, in love and compassion, for love covers a multitude of sins.  None of us are perfect.  No matter what there is no excuse to lose your life to darkness and hell.  Even many preachers have made plenty of mistakes and have paid a public price. But is that an excuse for us?  job 8:13 says, “The hypocrites hope shall perish.”  Matthew 7:1 “Judge not lest ye be judged. ” BUT it also says to test the spirits!  Therefore, judgment is not blind.  And the book of Romans is all the law. Wherefore Jesus is our advocate.  I trust my Lord. As one day we will  all of us stand before God in judgment.  There are 2 judgement seats.  First, for us Christians, for our Crowns.  That is what did we do in our lives since we were saved, for the Kingdom?  Did we witness, preach the word, love,  and STAND for righteousness?  Our Crowns, will determine where we will be in Heaven.  Then there is the other judgment.  This the Great White Throne Judgment Seat in which every hater, every atheist, ever murderer, every Communist, and evil doer in this world will stand in  front of God Almighty and be judged before being cast into the pit of hell forever and ever.  However, though it is up to God to make ALL final judgments, but we are to constantly test the spirits; are they of YOU Lord and the Holy Spirit or  from Satan and his minions and imps.  That discernment that we all should have could be our life or death.

Salvation should be freedom to love and freedom from the past and sins.  But, just as God grants us that freedom, doesn’t mean we are to forget.  You can’t forget the pain Jesus got you out of, but, you CAN use it for a ministry. I wrote on here, “Hiding the Stain” . How can  you minister and witness to others if you don’t say all God got you out of?  You can’t. So that pain, stain, sin, IS your ministry.  So then I used to hear “you don’t pray for the dead.”  Well, in one sense yes, they no longer can be saved, its too late.  But, we can pray for their souls to be at peace, especially death by horrific circumstances, such as our terrorist attacks. And children under the age of accountability.  So when in doubt, I study.  In Matthew 22:32 Jesus said, “I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the dead, but of the living. ” But, it didn’t say not to pray for a soul that died.  Matthew 22:29-30 says, “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.  For in resurrection they neither marry, nor are given, in marriage, but are angels of God in Heaven.”  There is  nothing that says we are not to pray for someone when they die.  That final judgment belongs to God alone!

The Bible further states in I Peter 4:4-6 when Peter said this, “Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of not speaking evil of you.  Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.  For this cause was the gospel preached ALSO to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit”.    For He is still a God of Love, Mercy, and Grace!

Is there persecution involved in being saved? Sometimes, especially now we are seeing it more frequently with Muslims killing Christians, now all over the world.  Missionaries have met their demise and have been captured, murdered, raped and held hostages for decades.  Matthew 5:11 says “There is a blessing  connected with it”.  Matthew 5:12 ” It lifts the soul to the plane of the prophets.”  II Timothy 3:12 “All Godly people expect it.”  Revelations 2:10 “it leads to a crown”  II Peter 2:9 says, “The Lord knows how to deliver the Godly out of temptations. Also Peter said, Glory in  our persecutions I Peter 4:14″If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, HAPPY are ye for the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.  How many of us can sing praises through our troubles or our persecutions? But, THAT is what we are told to do.  I could finally SAY praises to God  after my son’s death. but sing?  Salvation and coming to the Lord is the easy part.

A warm heart produces a prayer of compassion.  Revelations 4: 15-16 ” I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot.  I would rather thou were cold or hot so then because you are lukewarm,  I will spew thee out of my mouth.  In other words, you won’t make the Rapture, which could happen now, anytime.  THAT is a heavy price to pay for walking in the law and  legalism, the world, blasphemy, sin, verses walking in the Holy Spirit and love.

Sinners Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus,  I now realize am a sinner.  I ask you Lord for forgiveness and truly repent of my past. I accept the fact that you died for me on the rugged Cross of Calvary and went through so much suffering to show your love for  me and bear my sins.  You shed your blood on that Cross because you loved me.  I  now open my hearts door and receive you as  Saviour  and  Lord of my life. Please take  full  control o me and  help me to be the kind  of Christian  you  want me to be.  I ask this all in Jesus name Father God and that you’ll  lead me to a church that you want me to be.  I love you God, thank  you Jesus, Amen.

God Save Our America!


Americans are sleeping. Fox News is sleeping. Other than a few, Christians on TV are sleeping! My Christian friends are sleeping. While I am agonizing on my face before God. I’m 79. I’ve sounded the alarm. If this enclosed letter had not been from the late Charles Krauthammer, I may have disregarded. I copied, put on my word, scanned, shrunk & posted ALL over Twitter in tears! I remember WWII as a kid, I remember the Nazi’s in B&W news clips in movie theaters protesting at Madison Square Garden. I remember the Cold War, I remember when my folks voted for Eisenhower. I remember Gene McCarthy and his hearings. Is Soros & Obama above the law, just because he was President? Communism is subversive now as it was in the 40’s. I even sent a letter email to President Trump. What the heck is wrong with Sessions as I tweeted to him too. And all the fake Communist agenda news media. This letter from Charles is everywhere, and I emailed (yes had a few) to Bret, Martha, etc. There is nothing else I can do at my age, except this blog (which could always be my last.) BUT pray and cry for my America I love! And I tweeted to Irvin Baxter on End Times Ministries..cause he is right in his prophesies. I fear for my President and his family. Hate concocts  lunatic’s. ALL this corrupt media…all Communist. How Putin must be laughing. Mueller investigation? On Trump? Pathetic!  He should be conducting investigations on Obama’s OFA and Soro’s OSA, for it’s UNAmerican Communist activities!  Why isn’t the left media hypocracy shut down by our FCC?  AG Jeff Sessions, WHERE are you?  Here is Charles letter, how Putin must be laughing!

“By the late Charles Krauthammer
I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action” (OFA -Obama!!) (OSA- Soros)
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration’s top dogs over to Organizing for Action.
OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for “progressive” change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. “(THIS is why Schumer, Pelosi, and dems won’t budge!)

“OFA members were propped up by the ex-president’s message from the shadows: “Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond.”

OFA’s website says it obtained its “digital” assets from the ex-president’s re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.”

Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president’s signal that he is heartened by the protests.

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.
So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a “PERFECT TARGET” for our enemy!
Charles Krauthammer”

God Bless you Charles, I pray Gods grace led you to Heaven. This is the most important piece you have left us. Thank you.

These acts by Soros and Obama, are TREASON UNDER THE LOGIN ACT!  They are above the law? Clinton was now this?  President Trump needs our prayers. NEVER EVER could he have imagined such a shadow government swamp.  All of now as Sara Huckabee Sanders and Neilson who are Christians, and conservatives are under Communist attack. Fox? USE the word Communist for that is what it is, and who Obama and Soros are.  Soros Son married to a Senator. His nephew married to Chelsea Clinton.

OFA Why isn’t Mueller investigating this subversive Communist group?                                             https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organizing_for_Action

OSA Why isn’t Mueller investigating this subversive Communist group?                                          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Society_Foundations

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Soros

These Communists are running the world never mind America’s Shadow Government!             And our news media, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC. ABC are ALL in on it!  They are destroying our Government.  On the heading of this blog, ” I SHALL NOT KEEP SILENT ”  will you?

Dear God, we cry out your name.  I know that I know that I know we are in the end times. I know we are in Ezekiel 38, 39, Joel 2, Matthew 24, and Revelations 13.  There is no doubt in my mind, and all I watch and listen to with Irvin Baxter, Hal Lindsay, and Perry Stone, others, that the Rapture is on the horizon.  And God help you all who are not saved…as the tribulation begins, and you are left behind.  Blog heading, If my people who call out my name shall humble themselves and pray, then I will save their land.  We need revival so bad. I pray every Pastor, every Christian, every church just wake up and pass this link on…Contact  your Senators, contact your Representatives.  If they are part of this Communist conspiracy, with OFA and OSA, then VOTE THEM OUT!!  THIS is MY America..My Ancestor fought in the Revolutionary War.  And Juan Williams? Take off the blinders!! MY God, you were friends with Krauthammer.   Help us Lord, for our children and grandchildren…Save our America that our Founding Fathers shed so much blood over.   Set your captives FREE!!!  PRAY!!!  (I’m too old for this.)

BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES; THEY SHALL RUNL AND NOT BE WEARY; AND THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT.  Isaiah 40:31

Only this woman is tired. You who are younger need to take the reign and fight for this America we love.  We cannot end up a Communist nation. ..A One World order.  God can always prolong the prophesies if we do our part.  Our younger generation on the street with Jesse Waters or Judge Jeannine don’t even know the name of our VIce President.  So I implore you …LEARN YOUR HISTORY, YOUR BIBLE, READ! EVERY LESSON IS ON THIS BLOG THAT I EVER LEARNED FROM CHILDHOOD SUNDAY SCHOOL, TO AFTER I WAS SAVED SINCE 1982 AS WELL AS LINKS AND HISTORY.  COVER PAGE HAS ALL THE LINKS. READ ABOUT AYN RAND AND WHAT SHE WENT THROUGH WHEN HER FATHER’S SHOP IN RUSSIA WAS DESTROYED IN THE BOLCHEVIC REVOLUTION.  COMMUNISM. AND IT DIDN’T WORK IN RUSSIA. DIDN’T WORK IN VIETNAM, CHINA, CUBA, NOW NO KOREA. IT ONLY MAKES FOR DICTATORS AND POVERTY.  FIGHT..BIND SATAN OUT OF OUR POLITICS AND AMERICA.  AND VOTE THESE PEOPLE OUT.  CHRISTIANS? RUN FOR OFFICE!!  MISSISSIPPI GOT PRAYER IN SCHOOL CAUSE OF CHRISTIANS.  WE NEED THE WALL, AND WE NEED HONESTY AND INTEGRITY.  AND WE HAVE A LION IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW, WHOM I LOVE!  AND WHO LOVES GOD, AMERICA, AND ISRAEL.   GOD BLESS AMERICA, GOD BLESS DAYSTAR, TRINITY BROADCAST, GOD BLESS ISRAEL AND THIS PRESIDENT.  HELP US LORD SAVE AMERICA!!
