Paris Accord Deficiencies

It is amazing how naïve and uninformed Americans are.  Barrack Hussein Obama’s goal was to bankrupt this nation in every way, shape and form.  i.e. “Obamacare,” and leaving office with a 17 trillion dollar deficit.  Below is another “gift” he left for America and his successor.  He is indeed the gift that keeps on giving, even after he leaves office.

 

 

Paris Accord Deficiencies

“Maybe you weren’t able to read the Paris Accord… So let’s recap. Those who are complaining about what Trump did by dropping out of the Paris Accord support an agreement that does the following:
1) America must drastically reduce its emissions now, but China and India, the biggest polluters in the world, can continually increase their emissions to 2030 at which time they may or may not agree to comply with the agreement.
2) India, before it makes up its mind, demands to be paid 25 trillion dollars.
3) We have to reduce our coal production. China and India does not and can increase it.
4) Russia can actually increase its emissions by 50%.
5) We, along with the rest of the developed world, have to pay hundreds of millions dollars into the UN climate fund with no guarantees that any other than the United State would do it. Given their existing track record with NATO and the UN, I would expect the worse.
So…in what way does this benefit the United States? No…we don’t believe the steel industry is coming back to Youngstown.The above described agreement isn’t an agreement, it is a rape of the United States workers and taxpayers. When China and India get serious about reducing carbon emissions, let me know. Meanwhile, I suggest they start with cleaning up New Dehli and Beijing.”
This is just another of the stupid agreements made by Obama, Hillary and John Kerry (e.g. 20% of U.S. uranium supplies to Russia,
150 Billion to Iran the largest exporter of terrorism in the world and attempting to submit U.S. sovereignty to the U.N which is an organization consisting primarily of dictatorships, …)  No three terrorists have done as much damage to the U.S. as these three (wittingly or unwittingly?—you decide!).

The History Of Islam

The following history of Islam is a six part series the blog author wrote about five years ago, based on Patrick Buchanan’s book “Death Of The West,” and the sequel “Day Of Reckoning.”  I reprised it from six parts into this one lengthly article.  One of the important precepts in this story is that the Lord is allowing the wickedness of Radical Islam to harm the West because of our decadence.  If we stood squarely upon our original Judeo Christian foundation, Islam would not even be on the radar.  Islam can only enter a spiritual vacuum.  They intentionally attempt to strip a nation of their heritage, which in our case is Christianity.  They desire to make our nation secular, which is the spiritual vacuum that Islam builds upon.  Our nation is so spiritually lethargic, that it seems we are lacking a fervor and urgency to stop Islam from growing.  If ever born again Christians were called to pray, intercede and get involved, the time is now!  

Pray For Revival In America!   

 

 

“The Death Of The West” is the title of a book written by former presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan about ten years ago. He also wrote a sequel called The Day Of Reckoning. In his book, Russia, Europe and America are considered the west. His thesis is that immorality and a lack of conviction for the values that made our nation great are contributing to the rapid decay of the United States of America. We have gone from a country built on the Judeo Christian ethic to a pluralistic, multi cultural melting pot that stands for less and less everyday. Today’s buzzword is tolerance. That is tolerance for anything except the values that our country was built upon. We have entered the theatre of the absurd as special interest groups make outrageous claims. You can read about PETA, the ACLU, ACORN, Greenpeace and a host of others on a daily basis. President Obama claims he is a Christian, yet sanctifies sodomy, even making the marriage month of June, Gay Pride month. Nearly 60 million babies have been aborted since Roe vs. Wade, and our citizenry has the audacity to wonder why so many immigrants without traditional American values are “taking over.” It is called the law of sowing and reaping. The traditional and Biblical family is becoming extinct as the universal means for people living together. Now we are told that any living arrangements constitute a family. People boldly come into the Christian Church desiring to serve even though they are living in sin! Because the Christian Church has not stood on the Word of God, the church is having less and less impact on our culture. Buchanan suggests that our only hope as a unified nation is revival. He hit the nail on the head. Lately, there has been a lot of emphasis on “hosting the largest prayer meeting ever for our nation or in the state in which we live.” Our needs go far deeper. We need repentance within the church and we need 24/7/365 prayer “without ceasing!” Our nation is spiritually and morally adrift, economically challenged, and no longer do we feel secure from terrorists and other nefarious groups of people. God has always desired for us to walk with Him again but if we insist on doing that “which is right in our own eyes,” then He will let us go. 9-11 is the proof that He has indeed done just that.

There is great concern in our nation today about the building of mosques and the advancement of the agenda of radical Islam. This religion is built upon falsehoods and can only enter a vacuum created when people leave the One True God of the Bible. They have been setting their sights on the west because they perceive that we are currently in the “post Christian era.” They will erroneously conclude that Christianity does not work as they correctly observe the decay of the west. What they do not understand is that God did not leave us—we left Him. England left the Lord decades ago and is now paying the price. They stopped supporting Israel long ago, Christianity barely exists in England, and London is an international city that would best represent all beliefs. It is said that sharia law will soon be accepted in Great Britain, as England will be the first European Country to succumb to it. No longer can one say that the sun never sets on the British Empire. If you go as a visitor to England today, you will see people of Anglo Saxon descent serving at the tourist centers like Big Ben, the Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. If you walk for a block or two past these aforementioned locales, you will think you are in the Middle East. Radical Islam views all of the west in this manner, as nations to rapidly take over. Future entries on this site, the Lord willing, will reveal in detail the history, beliefs, mindset and agenda of radical Islam for the
west. The sole purpose of these articles is to incite the Christian Church to awareness and prayer. That is, “prayer without ceasing.”

The Seedbeds Of Islam:

Mohammed was not born until 570 A.D., long after the Bible was completed, both Old and New Testaments. The mindsets for the monotheistic religion of Islam, however, were already established. We will have to go back to the days of the original Biblical patriarchs in order to examine the fundamentals upon which this religion was built.
There are several Biblical characters who established the foundation for the religion of Islam. The first and foremost personality is Ishmael, born from the union of Abraham and Hagar. Isaac was Abraham’s rightful son of God’s promise, and was born later through Abraham and Sarah. Ishmael was blessed of God with a great number of progeny, yet he was lacking in spiritual and eternal blessings. Ishmael’s legacy of his people is best summed up in Genesis 16:12- “And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him: and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” This verse beautifully sums up both the religion of Islam and Ishmael’s people and descendants. Ishmael had a nephew Esau who was likeminded with his uncle. Both Ishmael and Esau were older brothers in their respective households, yet against the grain of Jewish law and protocol, their younger brothers both received the blessings and promises of God. Esau was a hunter, a hairy man, rugged, and the favorite of his father Isaac. He thought little of spiritual blessings however, and the familiar Biblical story has it that he sold his birthright in order to meet his hunger. Arabic descendants from both Ishmael and Esau were key players in the future religion of Islam, but there are others. When Mohammed came on the scene, descendants from the following Arabic peoples were also ripe for conversion to Islam: The descendants of Abraham’s nephew Lot made up the countries of Moab and Ammon who would also figure heavily as converts to Islam in the future. Less frequently cited is Abraham’s later wife Keturah, after Sarah’s death, who had many more sons with Abraham, further populating the Middle East with additional Arabic peoples. Abraham and Keturah had one son Sheba who settled in the southern Arabian peninsula. The Queen of Sheba who later visited Solomon, of course, came from this locale. Today, the nations of Yeman and Oman have replaced the ancient Sheba, yet the same progeny of Abraham and Keturah live in these countries. These early Arabic peoples lived under chieftans and sheiks, who were autocratic leaders over their respective families and clans. They populated the Arabic peninsula, living nomadic lifestyles in the desert, fighting off other people and neighbors, and if there was no one else to quarrel with, they fought amongst themselves. One can easily observe the fulfillment of the above cited Genesis 16:12 through the descendants of Ishmael and the early Arabic peoples. Hence the groundwork for the yet future religion of Islam has been laid.
Future entries will document the background and life of Mohammed, the pugilistic history and spread of Islam, and we will follow the tracks of this religion from the loins of Abraham to Armageddon.

Enter Mohammad………….

Mohammad is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. To understand Mohammad and his convoluted theology is to understand Islam. The Western version of “Islam” and the little Americans know is usually not the real thing. Do you want to study nations that represent Mohammad’s teachings? Then examine Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Mohammad’s teachings, when implemented to the fullest, give the citizen the choice to convert or die. Infidels (anyone who is not a Muslim) are disparaged throughout the Koran, with Jews and Christians referred to as pigs and apes/monkeys. This belief system is a far cry from orthodox Christianity. Christians respect a person’s right to believe as they desire and do not attempt to force conversion on anyone, realizing that true salvation is a change of heart that only God can bring. We pray for the lost and have no desire to kill them, and do NOT want them to die without salvation. Islam is obviously a religion promoting fear in anyone who does not convert. This is why Franklin Graham was nixed on our National Day Of Prayer by President Obama, because he called Islam an evil religion. Most Christian leaders do not have the fortitude to make such a statement. Let us examine the theology of Mohammad:
Mohammad is now the most common name given to newborn boys in London, England! It is a name taken by countless sport celebrities, and other notables around the globe. When I went to Jordan/Israel in 1987 this was the name of the young man who pulled my donkey through a narrow siq as I entered the famous city of Petra, carved out of solid rock and featured in the Indiana Jones movie Temple of Doom. Let us now carefully examine the famous person behind those who are named after him. Mohammad (570-632A.D.)— Mohammad had spiritual visitations from Genes, beings who tormented him for a great amount of time until he became the catalyst for the Muslim faith. Today, the well known Arabic word Genie is derived from the beings who were bothersome to Mohammad. In my opinion the Genes seem as if they are one and the same as what a Christian would refer to as a demon or fallen angel. There were times when Mohammad seriously contemplated suicide. Mohammad lived in Mecca, a city that grew quite large on the Arabian trade route. Mecca, a leftover urban center that can trace its’ roots to the previous Babylonian Empire, was polytheistic, believing in many gods. Mohammad became monotheistic in his beliefs and promoted only one god, the moon god Allah, taken from the pantheon of Babylonian deities. [Abraham also lived in lands and cities who worshipped primarily the moon god in both Ur of the Chaldees and later in Haran. This is one of the reasons that God called him to a different place.] Mohammad attempted to institute this belief system in Mecca without success. He also tried to convince the local Jewish people to convert to this religion since they were also monotheistic, but they considered him to be a false prophet and would have nothing to do with him. This laid the groundwork for an absolute and perfect hatred of Mohammad toward the Jewish people and the antisemitism we see everywhere. [This is why the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hamas, Hezbolah, Iran, Iraq and countless other nations and leaders will accept nothing short of the total annihilation of Israel.]
Mohammad successfully gained a foothold for Islam in the nearby Arabic city of Medina. The faith of Islam grew so fast and so large that it can only be explained as a supernatural phenomena. His armies converted thousands and slew thousands, and it was not long before he took over the entire Arabian peninsula, threatening nearby Asia, Africa and Europe during his life and the years immediately following. To understand Islam is to understand the sword, and their growth is through intimidation and threats of “convert or die.”
The Lord willing, future entries will thoroughly examine the beliefs of Islam. We will isolate several Arabic words that give us a comprehensive understanding of their philosophy, as their beliefs are often totally foreign to us. We will examine the history of Islam’s expansion throughout the world, and Biblical eschatology (end times prophecy) that traces their steps clear to the battle of Armageddon. One cannot understand our world today without understanding Islam. One final important note: Islam cannot possibly exist as a democracy or coexist with other religions! Islam is a religion, a culture, a social, political, economic and military system capturing every aspect of life. In the Islamic mindset, there is no alternative beyond their faith. Islam will promote peace only when everyone is Islamic.  Islam even means submission, and there will be global peace only when everyone submits to the teachings of Islam.  Until then, their war cry is Jihad. This is why it is foolish for any other nation to attempt to instill a democracy or republic in a Muslim nation. Put simply, the West does not understand the East and the radical agenda of the Islamic religion.

Increasing Our Arabic Vocabulary:

There is a politically correct, sanitized, western Muslim spin that makes this religion appear innocuous. Canada features a television show called “Little Mosque On The Prairie.” Not to be outdone, our nation now displays “All American Muslim.” These shows come on the heels of radical Islamic unrest in the Middle East in order to alter the western understanding of the naive. An excellant website for anyone who wants to understand the real agenda of this movement is RadicalIslam.org  The packaged agenda mentioned above intentionally glosses over jihadist terrorism, inequality with non-Muslims, misogyny, honor killings, the apostasy death penalty, etc., etc.  When the tentacles of this religion start taking over a nation, then the real intent of the belief system tends to dominate. Liberal or western Muslims will be urged to take Mohammad and the teachings of the Koran more seriously or they will not advance in the state under the radical Islamic agenda, and something could happen to their family members as well. Make no mistake, the teachings of their founder Mohammad and the Koran are what this faith is all about. They feature: * The sword against infidels. * All the teachings of Mohammad. * All the teachings of the Koran. * Jesus is not the Messiah and He is not the Son of God. He is a mere prophet and he is subordinate to Mohammad. * Ishmael was really Isaac. * Jerusalem really belongs to Islam even though the city is not mentioned in the Koran. * The Bible is full of errors and corrupt. The Koran was given later on in order to amend the corruptions. And the list goes on and on and on…. As you see, lies are a part of this religion and we will examine some of their words that describe their beliefs in detail: **Taqiyya is used to deceive Non-Muslims about Islam. It means deceit. Not only does Islam encourage believers to lie, it even commands it.  Muslims lie in order to make their beliefs more appealing to outsiders.  Since lying is so integral to Muslims, the ONLY way one can understand them is by watching what they DO, NOT by listening to what they SAY. Because of this, I believe Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. He CLAIMS to be a Christian yet has offered no testimony of his “new birth.” [John 3:3] He has disparaged the Christian roots of the U.S.A. whenever he has the opportunity, and he is also opposed to Israel more than any other president. He bowed down low to the king of Saudi Arabia with his chin nearly scraping the floor, yet he blows off the prime minister of Israel and the queen of England like they were dust on his shoes. He is pro abortion and pro sodomy as well!  I believe that he is in favor of these later awful twin sins because they harm our nation and other countries in a great way, reduce our respective populations, and polarize Americans against each other. These sins may go against the teachings of Islam, but since they hurt our western nations of infidels and pave the way for a Muslim advance in the near future, they would be expedient and favorably endorsed by Muslim leadership! His wife Michelle told him years ago that if he wanted to succeed in American politics, he would have to change his religion.  Hence he is a political and not a truly born again Christian. [i.e. In name only since it was politically advantageous for him to do so]. Obama, of course, belongs to a radical political “Christian” Church and not an evangelical Christian Church, because he is not a Christian. This is why he eliminated Franklin Graham from the National Day of Prayer, and every representation of true Christianity from the White House during his term in office. But my oh my, they are having Ramadan celebrations in the president’s home on a regular basis. If you remember, Rick Warren led in his Presidential Inaugural since Warren’s idea of the Christian faith is less offensive, more tolerant and all inclusive. Obama made the comment that “… we are no longer a Christian nation…” at the Presidential Inaugural event as well. That comment should have been a clue to anyone listening with absolutely any amount of discernment. Since this belief system is based on the father of lies, there are featured yet other words that encourage untruths. **The Qurayah Model for instance, encourages lies about peace. An example of this can be found in the case of Islamic treatment of the nation of Israel. The Post World War I plan for Israel (based originally on the Balfour Declaration) was a good sized nation, featuring a large land mass including all of Transjordan. This original plan has been attacked for nearly a century, and now Israel is nothing but a carved up small piece of the original intended country, roughly the size of New Jersey. The surrounding Arabic nations like Syria, Egypt, and Jordan, and radical groups such as the PLO, Hezbollah and Hamas, demand more and more of their land in exchange for “peace.”  It is a repetitious cycle of Israel’s land for a pseudo peace, intended only to destroy this Jewish nation. **Sharia Law- Their way of life and their religious, economic, and political beliefs are mandated for all. This is implemented when they take over in mass. Great Britain is on the verge of this actually occurring in their nation.  In the United States they would usurp our Constitution and every statute upon which this country was founded. **Jihad- A war is declared on behalf of Allah. It can be against an individual, a group or a nation. **Dhimmis (dhimmitude)- This belief allows infidels to live so that the state can make third class citizens out of them and tax them to the extreme (50%). When this is no longer expedient, then claims that the infidels are not submitting to Sharia Law are made and they can then be killed. The Lord willing, on the next entry, we will briefly and succinctly examine the history of this religion from Abraham to Armageddon.

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

We already laid the groundwork for Islamic expansion, discussing their foundation as they came to rapid and total domination of the Arabian peninsula. A century after these initial victories, they took over a lot of the decaying lands in the post Roman Empire, sweeping west along the Mediterranean Sea and getting a strong foothold and conquering most of Spain. Remember, Islam advances only wherever a vacuum exists and when people lose their former character, beliefs and moral fiber. Spanish and Mexican people today have dark complexions because of this Islamic advance nearly 1300 years ago. The Muslims were about to attack all of Europe from the west but they ran into an obstacle that made their military operations grind to a halt. The Franco leader Charles (the Hammer) Martel defeated the Islamic advance in Tours in 732 AD (100 years after Mohammad died) or they would have taken over all of Europe. For you history buffs, Charles Martel was the grandfather of Charlemagne, king of the Franks and emperor of the so called Holy Roman Empire.
Islamic advances are noted throughout history to occur about every 700 years, so let us fast forward to the 1400’s. The religion of Islam had a very strong base by this time in the Middle East, and were led by the Ottoman Turks for a lengthly period. The Ottoman Empire is noted for hindering and thwarting the attempts by European Crusaders to conquer the Holy Land. The Ottoman’s also captured Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Byzantine Roman Empire, and renamed the city Istanbul. This became their base of operations for another attack on Europe—–this time from the east. This time they advanced into modern day Romania and ran into a powerful local chieftan named Count Vladimer Dracul. He was a leader who became involved in psychological warfare and impaled his victims on stakes out in the open for all to see. Count Vlad is considered a hero in Romania today; unfortunately his life has become fictionalized with supernatural folklore in our nation and if you have not already guessed, we know him as Count Dracula. There are several castles in Romania today that face the great plains to the east and the once advancing Muslim Turks. At any rate, after initial success in advancing into eastern Europe, the Turks and the religion of Islam were once again turned back, or else Europe could have submitted to Islam and Sharia Law.
Early in our nation’s history, we had some encounters with Muslims that made our founding fathers wonder what kind of people we were dealing with. The Muslim Barbary pirates were pillaging and attacking the shores of western Europe and northern Africa. During the American Revolution, we had civilian ships with innocent women and children attacked by these pirates. Our marines were sent to Tripoli in order to quell these disturbances, hence the phrase in the Marine Corp’s Hymn: “…to the shores of Tripoli.” Our founding father’s were aghast that anyone would attack civilians in such a manner. [Fighting on a level playing field does not compute in Islam. They are noted for using women and children as human shields, and simply consider their atrocities from 9/11. They consider this cowardly act to be a great victory, hence they desire to build a mosque near ground zero]. Praise the Lord that the next 200 years of our history were free from this wicked and radical movement.
We are once again 700 years down the road and Islam believes that the time is ripe for the twelfth Imam to initiate world conquest and for Allah to rule over all. Today Islam controls the equatorial belt including Indonesia, North Africa, the Middle East and much of Asia. Their sights are set on the decaying west. Mosques and Muslim neighborhoods are going up all over Europe, Scandinavia and they are coming to the Americas. Detroit is an Islamic stronghold along with other areas of our nation. Israel is surrounded by Islamic countries and terrorist groups who will one day attack her in unison. The Bible refers to these events in Ezekiel 38 and 39, as well as Daniel 11 and in many other places. The ultimate war will be the Battle of Armageddon. Israel will be trapped, outnumbered and without hope. God will intervene in her behalf, defeat all of her enemies with the breath of His nostrils, and set up the millenial rule of Christ.
The next, and final entry of this series will focus on our present day world, and what our spiritual mindset should be in light of all these apocalyptic events that are rapidly coming into view, and will one day come to fruition in the very near future.

Wrapping It All Up

This site is a summary of the theme “Death Of The West,” and the previous five entries. The reader may find much of what will be said to be disconcerting—-BUT it is true. This summary will reveal what will soon be coming upon our nation unless God intervenes through the prayers and actions of the saints. The later part of this entry will place our focus where it should be— on the only God of the universe El Shaddai and the hope He gives us.
Before we sum up everything that has been said in these aforementioned writings, I would like to direct everyone to a three DVD set called “Political Islam’s War On The West” by Bill Federer. The set is 210 minutes long and I have heard lengthly parts of it and it is good. It runs $20.00 (the cost of about six gallons of gas) and is by far the best comprehensive coverage that I have heard about the Muslim strategy to subdue and conquer the world for Allah. It is distributed by Southwest Radio Ministries (www.swrc.com) at 1(800)652-1144. If one desires to be well informed about the topic of these six entries, these DVD’s will do it.
There are no words to describe Christianity in our nation today. Perhaps I can refer to one example that seems to be a reflection of what I see everywhere——spiritual apathy. While preparing for a Christmas Eve service, I quickly went outside to make a final check for our church mail. A young couple who I baptized and married a few years ago were driving by. I have not seen them in church for years but I was nonetheless thankful that they were still together. I encouraged them to come to the evening service but they did not come. That is a microcosm of what I see everywhere. While the average Muslim family has eight people, the “families” I observe in our area can consist of literally anybody cohabitating together. There are usually several last names, and loose knit guardians who hold down the fort. I often hear the mate referred to as a “fiancee.” A fiancee use to be the individual that one was betrothed to. One was always a virgin when they had a fiancee until their relationship was fully consummated through marriage. That is of course the intended meaning. Now “fiancee” often means the one who someone is fornicating with. I have met scores of people who typically have several children, all with different last names, and they always seem to have a “fiancee” and never a spouse. Our population is going down in number by the way, and in the future will not be able to provide for the needed work force of our nation. All of these blended families are destroying our nation’s moral fiber and bleeding our nation of tax dollars, since hard working decent people must subsidize their existence.
This whole scenario provides the ideal backdrop for the gradual Muslim takeover. Muslims start by integrating, and their immigrants commence to populate the land. That has indeed been happening in America. Detroit and Dearborn, Michigan are the little Meccas of the west. Mosques are being built all over our nation, and neighborhoods are in the planning stages in many places. Our mortgage financial crisis sets the stage beautifully for low cost, affordable housing for the masses of immigrants who are sure to come. The moral breakdown of our nation is also a platform that Islam can build on. Their strategy is to initially immigrate, then to saturate through political involvement and “Chicago politics,” and then to change the laws of the land, dominate and take over. When they take over a neighborhood, infidels are encouraged to move out. If they do not, they are often secretly murdered, and if one Muslim witnesses another Muslim commit the crime, he cannot testify against a brother in the faith. This has already happened in Europe, and due to the tremendous lack of spiritual discernment of Americans, I am sure it will happen here as well. I find it hard to swallow that about one half of Americans would put Obama back in office for another term, despite the fact that he has forever destroyed our nation through an unbelievable federal deficit that will reach sixteen trillion dollars by election time in November, and Obamacare which alone will do irreversible financial damage. I dare say that many Americans are not even aware that our president’s desire is to undermine every principle upon which this nation was built: our great middle class, our way of life, our moral fabric, freedoms and our economy. No Christian president would condone sodomy and the killing of unborn babies. His strategy is obviously to consummate his campaign slogan of “change.” What I have noticed for the first time during my life, is there are no reputable opponents to counter his nefarious ambitions. The Republicans have no clear leader who resonates with everyone. Mitt Romney looks like he may be the Republicans’ default candidate. There are no heroes on the horizon. Where is the strong voice in our nation who lives with integrity, opposes evil and we can unite with?
A clear barometer of the lukewarmness within today’s Christian Church is the lack of fruit evidenced in true salvation experiences and commitment from younger people. I have also noticed faulty doctrine within the beliefs of so many. Instead of the repentance that accompanies true salvation, the idea is how many things I can still do as a believer when I take advantage of my “liberties.” (Read Romans 6:1-2 and Jude 4) Another noteworthy concern is that the church is top heavy with seniors in leadership, and lacking with the younger generation and the church of tomorrow. The antibiblical mindset that our culture and schools has instilled upon our youth has been very comprehensive to say the least. This is a universal phenomena in our nation and transcends the size of the church and its’ location. True servant disciples and servant leaders are lacking in younger people. People in their late 50’s/60’s are still leading in ministries and outreach, often with no younger successor on the radar. This is unprecedented. Do you have concerns about the church of tomorrow? I do.
Praise the Lord, however, that He always has His remnant! True and committed believers will stand out today as the pretenders are falling by the wayside. God is and will be purging His church. I think there is a great analogy we can use with our nation and Israel. When Israel sinned and left the Lord, He used the nations of Assyria and Babylon to judge them. I believe He may be using Islam in the same way with the United States of America today. As Patrick Buchanan said in his book Death Of The West: “a revival may be the only thing that will turn this spiritual drift, complacency and backsliding around.”  I tremble that God’s judgment and justice will not sleep forever.  I fear for a nation that has aborted nearly 60 million babies.  I am in awe of our God who will one day balance the books in the realm of “gay marriage,” which is an oxymoron. Did you know that homosexual “marriages” never existed in the history of mankind until now? Homosexuality existed with the Greeks, Romans and other cultures, yet “marriage” was out of the question. We definately received the president we deserve.  Can judgment be far off for America?  I would not think highly of a God who did not judge wickedness in a nation.  What we have done will soon come back to us: Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”  Our judgment will be severe because our nation has received more light than any country in history: Hosea 8:7 “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”  I would like to mention the statement again that was made in the first entry in this six part series Death Of The West— The whole purpose for pointing out these things is to encourage Christians to get on our knees and then to take action. If we do not, can you imagine the world that our children and grandchildren will inherit?  Yes, I know, the Lord may come for His church but we should not count on this happening in order to avoid trials. He may tarry. The really good news is the following: After Habakkuk realized that his nation of Israel was toast and was about to go into captivity into Babylon, he said “Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hill.” Habakkuk 3:17-19

A Hymn Of Faith
Faith overcomes all of our circumstances and gives the true believer undiminished joy. “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” The Lord wants us to pray in faith, with great trust and expectation for whatever His response may be. Let us be grateful for the freedoms that we still have and USE THEM FOR HIS GLORY!

Trey Gowdy – James Comey, Former Director Of The Federal Bureau Of Investigation, Exonerated Hillary Clinton From Criminal Prosecution In July, 2016, Because The Justice Department Was In Collusion With The Clinton Machine

Any informed political conservative would have already figured this out ten months ago.  This is not fresh news to me.  The spineless James Comey was a manipulated puppet and political hack for Hillary Clinton.  This is what happens when you have a president like Barack Obama, whose eight years in office has created a government that is totally corrupt to the core.  Then you have the just as corrupt (if not more corrupt) Clinton Machine ready to take the handoff.  No, President Donald Trump’s mantra of “draining the swamp” was not exaggerated hyperbole.   Pastor Steve

 

Trey Gowdy Dropped A Bombshell About A Major Scandal Involving The FBI

FBI Director Jim Comey finds himself at the center of multiple Washington scandals.

The controversy began with his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

And Trey Gowdy just made a startling revelation that’s turned into a major bombshell.

When the South Carolina Congressman appeared on Martha McCallum’s Fox News show and was asked about Comey’s conduct, he gave a surprising response.

Gowdy claimed Comey was trapped into making his now-famous July announcement that Hillary would not face charges because of collusion between the Clintons and the Department of Justice.

The Daily Caller reports:

‘Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Fox News Tuesday night that the Clintons’ “entanglements” with the Department of Justice run much deeper than the average viewer may know.

On Fox News’ “The Story,” Gowdy cryptically told host Martha McCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”

“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.

“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.”

Gowdy then made a mysterious reference to more ties between the Clintons and the Justice Department.

The Daily Caller also reports:

“McCallum asked if he was implying that Comey was pressured into clearing Clinton of all wrongdoing.

“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.

“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”

“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.

“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.”

Gowdy could have been referring to a memo the FBI had in its possession that was written by a Democratic operative stating Lynch would let Clinton escape scot-free.

The New York Times reports:

“During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document.

Read one way, it was standard Washington political chatter. Read another way, it suggested that a political operative might have insight into Ms. Lynch’s thinking.”

The whole Clinton investigation was compromised from the start.

The Times reported that Lynch pressured Comey to refer to the investigation as a “matter.”

Comey obeyed her order, and in the process aligned the FBI with Clinton campaign talking points.

The former FBI Director compounded the issue when he cleared Clinton after appearing to make the case for indicting her.

It was a complete mess that was undermined by political entanglements and considerations.

The New World Order Is Here

Under the presidential administration of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States of America has handed over the Internet to ICANN.  (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).  This means that the United Nations will ultimately control the Internet, and they will monitor all speech on line.  They will control all of the finances of the world and severely curtail our freedoms.  National sovereignty is rapidly disappearing.  Why has the leadership in our government done this?  Because ever since the failed Tower of Babel, fallen mankind desires to set up his own kingdom, and place the One True God of the universe out of the equation.

The Washington Post ~ Quotable Quotation

“The traditionalists are in the saddle.  U.S. policy has been normalized.  The world is on notice:  Eight years of sleepwalking is over.  America is back.”

“…the very swiftness of the response carried a message to the wider world.  Obama is gone.  No more elaborate forensic investigations.  No agonized presidential handwringing over the moral dilemmas of a fallen world.  It took Obama 10 months to decide what to do in Afghanistan.  It took Trump 63 hours to make Assad pay for his chemical-weapons duplicity.  America demonstrated its capacity for swift, decisive action.”

“Populist isolationism is not a governing foreign policy for U.S.”

“It is not so much that there is a new sheriff in town.  There IS a sheriff in town.”

Charles Krauthammer  ~  April 13

There Is A New Sheriff In Town

Leading From The Front

Last night, sixty Tomahawk Missiles were delivered to the Syrian Shayrat Air Base used by both Russia and Syria.  This is the air base that only a couple of days ago sent out chemicals that killed infants, children and innocent civilians.  Fifty nine missiles reached their exact targets and one dud fell into the Mediterranean Sea.  This technology is unbelievable, as it took one half hour to launch them all from two destroyers, yet they all hung in the air and struck simultaneously within a couple of minutes.  What a breath of fresh air, after eight years of leading from behind and the thin red line.  What euphoria after eight years of “Our allies no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us.”  What a unique set of circumstances when the extremely liberal Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry agree with Donald Trump that this was the right thing to do!  Praise the Lord for a president who does not vacillate or equivocate – and steps up and does the right thing!  While the missiles were striking the air base, Donald Trump was dining with the president from China.  It sounds like a Hollywood staged set.  This missile strike was a clear signal to China, North Korea and to ISIS if they were listening.  Donald Trump told the Chinese that if they do not stand up to North Korea that he will.  Make no mistake, the only thing that Vladimir Putin and Russia, the Chinese, North Korea, Iran, Iraq, and ISIS respect is strength.  Praise God for a president who acts decisively and does the right thing.  What a wonderful relief after eight years of the worst feckless foreign policy imaginable.  Blessings, Pastor Steve

Small Mississippi Town Fights Back After Mayor Forced to Remove Christian Flag

Hundreds of residents in a small Mississippi town took part in a demonstration on February 4 to fight back after the town’s mayor was forced to remove a Christian flag flying over a local park.

According to WREG-TV, Mayor Walter Williams of Rienzi, Mississippi, was forced to remove the Christian flag flying over the town’s Veterans Memorial Park after the Freedom From Religion Foundation threatened the town with a $500,000 lawsuit.

Since the town has just several hundred residents, Williams said his hands were tied….

The predominantly Christian town was not happy with the situation, so they decided to organize a demonstration where they would rehoist the Christian flag.

“There just comes a point in time when you’ve got to be politically incorrect and take a stand,” event organizer Kevin Nelms told WREG.

“We’re not gonna let other people, or a foundation, or anybody else up in Wisconsin tell us that we can’t fly our flag!”  he added.  “You’re gonna take one down, we’re gonna put a hundred back up.”  So that’s what the residents did.  -Chris Enloe, theblaze.com

The Amen Corner

Do what the Lord bids you, when He bids you, where He bids you, as He bids you, as long as He bids you; and do it at once.  -Charles Spurgeon

The Word of God, in order to be blessed to the hearer, must be preached from the heart!  Jeremiah said, “His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones”  (20:9).  It is heart preaching that has power, not head preaching.  -John R. Rice

Peace is not made at the council tables or by treaties but in the hearts of men.  -Herbert Hoover

We cannot rest in God until we nest in God.  -Vance Havner

It is one of the Devil’s oldest tricks to discourage Christian believers by causing them to look back at what they once were.  It is indeed the enemy of our souls who makes us forget that we are never at the end of God’s love.  No one will make progress with God until the eyes are lifted to the faithfulness of God and we stop looking at ourselves!  -A.W. Tozer

In the years of your Christian life there are many promotions in spiritual growth, but no graduation.  -T.J. Bach

Is it not blessed to think that God is always so quick in the rescue of His children?  Swifter than a thrush’s wing, swifter than a swallow’s wing, swifter than an eagle’s wing are the wings of the Almighty.  -T. DeWitt Talmage

Our faith must be tested.  God builds no ships but what He sends to sea.  -D.L. Moody

2016 Elections / Interesting Facts About Who Won What And The Electoral College

 This article conveys the brilliance of our Founding Fathers when they established the Electoral College – 

MORE ACCURATE PERSPECTIVE

Here are the facts:

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her

19 and DC.  62% to her 38%.

Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.

Hillary won California 8,753,788 to Trump’s 4,483,810.  61.6% to

33.1% exclusive of the other candidates.  Thus California gave Hillary the

popular vote for all states as claimed

by the Democrats and their media stooges.

But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783,

and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.

So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected

president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote

of any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others.  Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised

her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.

This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.

At its lowest point since the civil war!  Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party?  When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:

1)  The Presidency.

2)  A majority of the House of Representatives.

3)  A majority of the Senate.

4)  Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.

5)  Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.  And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:

6)  A majority of the Supreme Court.  The above has never happened  before in American history.

Think about that and let it sink in for a moment.  And it’s all because  of one reason:  Barack

Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats.  It’s important to pass this on.  With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.

 

Quotable Quotations

Here is Moscow’s response to President Obama’s attempts to box in President Elect Trump, and our relationship with Russia:

Moscow (Vladimir Putin) calls Obama’s team a “bunch of geopolitical losers” engaged in a last-ditch effort to inflict the maximum possible damage to U.S.-Russia ties to make it more difficult for Trump to mend the rift.

In a clear effort to avoid risking a rapprochement with Trump, Putin showed remarkable restraint when the U.S. expelled 35 Russian diplomats over accusations of meddling in the U.S. election campaign. Instead of a usual tit-for-tat response, Putin invited U.S. diplomats’ children to a New Year’s party at the Kremlin.

Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. were in frequent contact in recent weeks, including on Dec. 29, the day Obama hit Moscow with sanctions in retaliation for election-related hacking, according to a senior U.S. official.

Moscow similarly refrained from retaliation when the White House last week added five Russians, including the chief of Russia’s top state investigative agency, to the U.S. sanctions list.
