Peter Wehner: ” Why I Can No Longer Call Myself an Evangelical Republican .”

Peter Wehner, former President George W. Bush’s speech writer and senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, opined in the New York Times on Sunday, ” Why I Can No Longer Call Myself an Evangelical Republican.”

I don’t know Peter Wehner.

But it’s strange; I would have thought that the final straw for evangelical Wehner might have been his boss, President George W. Bush in England in 2003, equating Jehovah and false god Allah as the same God:

EXHIBIT A

Q Thank you, Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister. Mr. President, when you talk about peace in the Middle East, you’ve often said that freedom is granted by the Almighty. Some people who share your beliefs don’t believe that Muslims worship the same Almighty. I wonder about your views on that.

And, Mr. Prime Minister, as a man also of faith, I’d like to get your reaction to that.

PRESIDENT BUSH: I do say that freedom is the Almighty’s gift to every person. I also condition it by saying freedom is not America’s gift to the world. It’s much greater than that, of course. And I believe we worship the same God . (11/20/03)

EXHIBIT B

Or as if that weren’t enough, Laura Bush’s deceit and hypocrisy from 2000-2008 — keeping quiet through two presidential campaigns so her husband could be elected and reelected; and misrepresenting her position on same-sex marriage and abortion:

First Lady Supportive of Gay Rights and Abortion Rights — not Michelle Obama, but Laura Bush!

EXHIBIT C

Or Ken Mehlman — former White House Political Director, former Bush/Cheney 2004 Campaign Manager, and former RNC Chairman 2005-2007 — who paraded himself (once he left Washington, DC) as homosexual and led the amicus brief advocating homosexual marriage, in the Obergefell vs. Hodges case, before the Supreme Court in 2015.

Karl Rove and Ken Mehlman framed the BUSH/CHENEY 2004 reelect on “Family Values” as they placed same-sex marriage bans on the ballots in AR, GA, KY, MI, MS, MT, ND, OH, OK, OR, and UT.

Following the Bush 43′ reelection victory we learned that the showcasing of “moral virtue” by the BUSH/CHENEY 04′ campaign was a ruse. Machiavellian to the core, “Political expediency placed above morality and the use of craft and deceit to maintain the authority and carry out the policies of a ruler.”

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee led the Arkansas initiative. He emailed me following the 2004 charade:

“Looking back, we all now know we were played for chumps as we led sincere efforts to pass Constitutional amendments in our states (I led one in 2004 that won by 70%), only to now realize that those running the White House didn’t respect or even agree with the principles involved – just knew it would drive voters to the polls and help turnout and win.”

EXHIBIT D

Or Cindy McCain advocating for homosexual marriage in 2010, after her husband was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Why didn’t she say this when her husband was campaigning for President in 2007-2008?

You see the pattern here, one thing they all have in common — like candidate Barack Hussein Obama at the Saddleback Presidential Debate in 2008 — deceit, so as to be elected:

Obama: “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian-for me-for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”

Warren: “Forty million abortions, at what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?”

Obama: “Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”

It speaks to character: veracity — “habitual truthfulness”.

As to Peter Wehner, a “NeverTrumper”, he has become so obsessed with Donald Trump that, like a drunk, it has impaired his vision. Wehner cannot see the real crisis, which would be there even if Trump wasn’t, and that’s the reason the New York Times accords him that perch, as a ” dupe of Secularism.”

There is good news; Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.

Thankful For…. Brigitte Gabriel

Thankful For….Brigitte Gabriel <brigitte@act4america.net>

Today at 7:13 AM

With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, I wanted to make sure I took the time to personally write my ACT for America family, and share with them that which I am most thankful for.

1. I’m thankful for our military heroes. With so much attention and praise given to ungrateful athletes who kneel during the National Anthem, I’m thankful for true heroes who risk their lives, leave their families, and in some cases, pay the ultimate price for my freedom. Their sacrifice is one I will never forget, nor take for granted.

2. I’m thankful for our law enforcement officers. The Thin Blue Line is under attack from the mainstream media on a daily basis. Imagine risking your life for someone, only to have them turn around and blame you for almost all of society’s ills. Imagine being tasked with protecting your community from terrorists, only to have some leftist politician like Bill DeBlasio tie your arms behind your back in the name of political correctness. I respect and honor those who serve and protect, unlike the NFL.

3. I’m thankful for you, my fellow grassroots patriot, who prefaces country above self, and volunteers their time and energy to make America a safer place to call home. It is selfless citizens like you, now more than 800,000 of which make up this organization, who are saving this country from self-destruction. ANTIFA, CAIR, the SPLC, etc. none of them stand a chance against our unified grassroots machine. We are too strong, too determined, and love this country far too much to let them succeed.

4. I’m thankful Barack Obama is no longer President. This is one that certainly cannot be overstated. How refreshing it is not to have to listen to our President lecture America about tolerance and “Islamophobia,” after an Islamic terrorist attack. No more James Taylor playing “You’ve Got A Friend,” to combat ISIS. No more praising America’s enemies, or attacking our allies like Israel. I could go on about why I’m so thankful for this, but you’d still be reading this in 2018 if I did.

5. I’m thankful for the fact that I am an American citizen. I dreamed of coming to America when I was living in a bomb shelter as a little girl, but never in a million years ever thought my dream would one day become a reality. I owe more to this country than I can ever repay, but it is through this organization that I can certainly try to repay that debt.

I sincerely wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, and can’t wait to share with you what we at ACT for America have in store for you in the very near future.

Always Devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

*************************************

I would like to add one more to Brigitte’s list.  I am thankful that Hillary Clinton was not elected as our president.  The next time that you feel negative towards our nation, envision where we would be RIGHT NOW if she were elected.  Blessings, Pastor Steve

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

How Is America Doing After Nine Months Of The Donald Trump Administration?

If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think our nation is falling apart at the seams, and our president is on the verge of impeachment.  Well, just what are the facts?

The Trump Economy-

Our economy has taken off.

261,000 jobs were created in October.

24,000 manufacturing jobs were filled at this time.

Unemployment is at a 17 year low.

Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high.

Over one million fewer Americans are relying on food stamps, the best numbers in over 7 years.

The homeowners rate has risen in the last quarter.

More people are in the work force than 7 years ago.

The stock market is doing very well.

Donald Trump has promised to make our economy great two years ago, and that is exactly what has happened.

Rush Limbaugh: Trump Not Getting Enough Credit for Booming Economy
Posted By: admin
on: November 01, 2017
In: All News, Finance, Politics, US News

If you look at the latest round of approval polls for President Donald Trump, you would think we’re looking at one of the least popular presidents of all time. If these polls are to be believed, Trump is spiraling down the drain to some of the worst job approval ratings any president has ever seen. And, to be clear, we fully believe that these polls are (relatively) accurate. Yes, they may be weighted to this degree or that one, but we have no problem believing that the majority of Americans strongly disapprove of Trump’s presidency. Why would they? The mainstream media’s coverage of Trump has been like one long highway car crash since January. Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.

And it is garbage, make no mistake about that.
On his program Tuesday, radio host Rush Limbaugh noted that if Americans were getting the truth about Trump’s presidency and, in particular, its effect on the economy, those poll numbers might look quite a lot different. But Limbaugh argued that Trump is in no way getting the credit he should be getting for the economic boom.
“I’m gonna shoot you straight here,” Limbaugh said. “Donald Trump’s not getting nearly the credit he deserves for the performance of the U.S. economy. You talk about a rebound? I mean, where was it 10 months ago? Where was it a year ago? Where was it during the seven years of Obama? Remember they were trying to tell us that we had to adapt to a new reality, and that is an America in decline? We had to adapt to these things because America’s past had been not real. Our economic heft and our superpower status was largely undeserved.

“But now it was time to pay the piper and find out how the rest of the world – that we have been trampling all over – lives,” he continued. “And Trump, of course, has reversed thinking; he has reversed performance; there is confidence among consumers. They’re spending. Jobs have been created.”
The problem here – in addition to the media’s disdain for Trump – is that the American people have been sold a lie for the last six years that told us that Obama had rescued us from the recession and all of the accompanying crap. Americans didn’t really BUY that, of course – the proof was in last year’s election, if nothing else – but it’s a story the media is sticking to even to this day. And so they can’t exactly turn around and give Trump credit for this huge recovery…because they’ve been telling us the economy recovered long before Trump came into office. It’s fake news on top of fake news.
But numbers don’t lie, and eventually the media’s fiction will catch up to them. Americans are going to start noticing the economic boom with or without the media’s help, and – like every president before him – Trump will get the credit. Oh, the left really doesn’t want that to happen. Sadly for them, there’s nothing they can do about it.

The Strategy Of The Shadow Government When Their Nefarious Deeds Are Exposed

If you remember the Sitcom “Hogan’s Heroes” from a generation ago, then you remember the character played by John Banner:  Luftwaffe POW camp guard Sergeant Schultz.  His legendary retort about ANYTHING that came up was:  “I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing.”  Later in the show it was changed to “Nothing, NOTHING!”  That is precisely the reply we always hear from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her supporters, The Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder, the rogue element within the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice and the State Department, about all of their alleged scandals.  Whether it is the Benghazi scandal, or that of the Internal Revenue Service, Gunrunner, Fast and Furious, Quid Pro Quo, the Trump Dossier, the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One sale to Russia, and a host of others, the Deep State response is always as follows:

Admit Nothing

Deny Everything

Make Counter Allegations

They have the strategy down pat.  Hillary Clinton lies like an Afghan carpet, and it comes so natural to her, that one would truly suspect that she could lie and pass the polygraph test while doing so.  The rigged system already had her “in” as president of our nation prior to November 8, 2016.  Hillary Clinton will find that there is a price to pay on Judgment Day.  What Crooked Hillary Clinton does not seem to understand, is that the one true Triune God of the universe is much, much stronger than her despicable agenda and those who attempt to promote it.  If Christians will submit to II Chronicles 7:14, and continue to pray for this sin sick nation, then perhaps the Lord of the universe will continue to intervene in our favor.

I truly believe that every person involved in selling uranium (Uranium One) to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars (Quid Pro Quo) should be rightly accused of treason and promptly executed.  They make Benedict Arnold look like a “choir boy” in comparison.

Blessings, Pastor Steve  <><

Let not your heart be troubled.  If you are like me, and occasionally feel that the wicked are skating past justice, you will be blessed by the 37th Psalm.  Enjoy…

Psalm 37
David urges men to patience and confidence in God, by contrasting the condition of the godly and the wicked
1 Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, Neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. 4 Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart. 5 Commit thy way unto Jehovah; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass. 6 And he will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light, And thy justice as the noon-day.

7 Rest in Jehovah, and wait patiently for him: Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, Because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil-doing. 9 For evil-doers shall be cut off; But those that wait for Jehovah, they shall inherit the land. 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: Yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and he shall not be. 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12 The wicked plotteth against the just, And gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord will laugh at him; For he seeth that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way. 15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. 16 Better is a little that the righteous hath Than the abundance of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken; But Jehovah upholdeth the righteous. 18 Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect; And their inheritance shall be for ever. 19 They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil; And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20 But the wicked shall perish, And the enemies of Jehovah shall be as the fat of lambs: They shall consume; In smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again; But the righteous dealeth graciously, and giveth. 22 For such as are blessed of him shall inherit the land; And they that are cursed of him shall be cut off. 23 A man’s goings are established of Jehovah; And he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For Jehovah upholdeth him with his hand. 25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his seed begging bread. 26 All the day long he dealeth graciously, and lendeth; And his seed is blessed. 27 Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell for evermore. 28 For Jehovah loveth justice, And forsaketh not his saints; They are preserved for ever: But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. 29 The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell therein for ever. 30 The mouth of the righteous talketh of wisdom, And his tongue speaketh justice. 31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide. 32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, And seeketh to slay him. 33 Jehovah will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait for Jehovah, and keep his way, And he will exalt thee to inherit the land: When the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. 35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil. 36 But one passed by, and, lo, he was not: Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. 37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; For there is a happy end to the man of peace. 38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together; The end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39 But the salvation of the righteous is of Jehovah; He is their stronghold in the time of trouble. 40 And Jehovah helpeth them, and rescueth them; He rescueth them from the wicked, and saveth them, Because they have taken refuge in him.

Psalms 37:1-40 (ASV)

“Watergate: modern age”

It appears that the “Russian collusion, delusion, confusion and illusion” which focused on President Donald Trump for the last year plus, was a smokescreen, intended to deflect the attention from the REAL Russian collusion which is centered upon the sale of 20% of our supply of uranium to Russia.   [Remember, absolutely no proof of this surmised collusion involving Russia and President Donald Trump has ever been offered].  In cahoots were the former Attorney General Eric Holder, the Department of Justice, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the State Department and others.  The boomerang has come back and slammed the Democrats right in the face, and the entire time, the Russian connection was with the Democratic National Convention and the Clinton campaign.  Keep an eye on the news, and pray for justice to prevail with this issue.

I ask myself, what do the corrupt Russian leaders, Vladimir Putin and others, think about our leadership in the United States of America?

Pastor Steve  <><

**************************

President Trump called the investigation into a uranium deal with Russia that is linked to Hillary Clinton “Watergate: modern age.”
“The uranium sale to Russia and the way it was done was so underhanded. With tremendous amounts of money being passed, I actually think that’s Watergate: modern age,” Trump told a media scrum as he left the White House on Wednesday to head to Texas.
Republican congressmen announced they would begin investigating a controversial uranium deal approved during the Obama administration when Clinton was the secretary of state.
Groups backing the Uranium One sale reportedly donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

New York Post

**************************

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House:  “Is there any end to the scandal throughout our government?  The swamp is huge.  The Clinton Foundation accrued money through selling uranium to Russia, so the Russians could build nuclear armaments to threaten us with.  Then there is also the Trump dossier which is Fake News collected by the Democratic Party against Donald Trump.”

Making Sense Of Hurricane Harvey

Record breaking disasters are becoming the new normal in America.  Prior to this past weekend, no one would mention a fifty inch rain except as a joke.  It is labeled as a storm that would happen once in every five hundred years.  We feel unbelievable sorrow over those who have lost everything.  Children without shoes, people without clothing, the loss of all of their belongings, and the shock of everything as it slowly sinks in.  We applaud the incredible heroism and sacrifice of the many who place themselves in harms way.  Fishermen, who use their boats and at great personal risk, pursue the thousands who are in life threatening situations.  We feel awful about the police officer who perished doing the same.  We appreciate the Texans and the American spirit, of making the best out of seemingly impossible situations.  I noticed that a great many of the volunteers had crosses around their necks – absolutely no surprise to me.

But I ask, could this disaster have been averted?  Yes, I believe so.  …And I am not talking about building stronger dikes and dams.  The old adage remains true:  “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  We just had a president (Barack Hussein Obama) who trampled on our Judeo Christian heritage, through displaying rainbow colors on the White House, thus revealing his approval for the LGBT (and now Q has been added) life style.  He approves of “gay marriages” and many other perverse unions that are referred to in the Bible as “abominations.”  We have aborted nearly sixty million babies and wonder why the next generation will lack a labor force to keep our nation running.  We could continue “world without end,” with our nations’ trespasses, but you already know them…  But, you may think, isn’t the idea that the Lord God would allow such atrocities to happen as He judges our nation, going too far?  No, I do not think so.  Entire civilizations have disappeared, and they were judged for doing far lesser trespasses.  I believe there are still many, many Christian people in this nation who are doing His will, and that may be one of the reasons that the Lord is holding off our countries’ entire destruction.  Do you still believe it is going too far to suggest that the unprecedented weather tragedies in the last sixteen years are the Lord’s chastening of America?

Consider II Chronicles 7 below.  All the climate events were His chastening tools upon the nation of Israel.  We are quick to isolate II Chronicles 7:14, and quote this scripture, yet we often overlook how the Lord changes our weather patterns when we rebel against Him.  [Do you remember Elijah?  Following his prayers to the Lord, and his confrontation with King Ahab, Israel received no rain or dew for three years, until Baalism was confronted and their false prophets killed.  Also mentioned in the Bible are God’s judgment tools of locust invasions, the ten plagues upon the Egyptians, and countless other scenarios.]  II Chronicles 7:14 is highlighted in red, while II Chronicles 7:13, 20, 21, all pertaining to God’s hand in the weather and their punishment through captivity are highlighted in blue.  Blessings, Pastor Steve

 2 Chronicles 7  King James Version (KJV)

Dedication Of The Temple

1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house.
2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.
3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
4 Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord.
5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the Lord, which David the king had made to praise the Lord, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
8 Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt.
9 And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the Lord had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
11 Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king’s house: and all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the house of the Lord, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
18 Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
21 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the Lord done thus unto this land, and unto this house?
22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

The Old Left Contrasted With The New Left

The Old Left peaked at Woodstock, New York and at Haight and Ashbury, San Francisco; endorsing George McGovern for president.  (When Richard Nixon resigned following the Watergate incident, they boasted bumper stickers that said:  “Don’t blame me, I voted for McGovern”).  They protested the Viet Nam War.  They progressed from the counterculture groups of Beatniks and Hippies.  They espoused peace, love and dope.  LSD was taken by many of their more famous proponents.  When I was in high school in the early 70’s, I started hearing the  war cry against the “establishment,” not even knowing what it was.  As a young man, I thought they were aimless and clueless, viewing life without any real understanding.  They seemed like rebels without a cause.  They were however peaceful, and accepted differences of opinion.  They were often given to communal living, bypassing the institution of marriage.  (“Marriage is just a piece of paper.”  Remember?)   Their “families” were loose knit groups, bearing names like Roadrunner or Moon Rocket.  They were morally liberal, and a lot of their ethics, or lack thereof, went directly against the grain of our Judeo Christian heritage and the Ten Commandments.  At this time, it did not seem that our entire culture was threatened but it was.  Babies were aborted in great numbers; commencing this onslaught was the Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade.  Nearly sixty million babies were murdered since this infamous ruling.  Now we have violent illegal immigrants replacing them – I ask who is to blame?  (Hosea 8:7 King James Version)  “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”  The Old Left was the base for the New Left, who share the same values but have taken their ideology several steps further.

Consider the New Left.  They are Hippies on steroids, with a violent and relentless agenda.  Other beliefs are not respected, and even allowed.  They cannot accept “no” for an answer.  They desire a nanny state resembling socialized Europe.  Cradle to grave entitlement programs are on their agenda.  Their poster children are Barack Obama, the Clinton machine and Bernie Sanders.  Their endless meltdown since the November 8, 2016 election loss is indeed a microcosm of their ideology.  Let us review the past seven months following Hillary Clinton’s incredible defeat:  “Let us cuddle and drink hot cocoa.  Let me lie in the street in the fetal position as I hold my teddy bear.  May we break some windows, overturn cars and start fires downtown because our candidate lost.  Cancel college classes and exams, and have group sessions of crying and pouting.  The election was rigged.  Let us have innumerable recounts!  We need to challenge, change or even eliminate the electoral college and overturn the results.  Trump’s victory is not at all legitimate.  Trump was in collusion with Russia – (The never ending Russian collusion illusion and delusion).  Impeach Trump!  Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails disqualify our president.  Etc., etc., etc.  Yes, it is the gift that keeps on giving, and giving and giving.”  A congressman from New England just threatened our president on Facebook.  A comedian revealed a beheaded facsimile of our president for humor.  In a recent play on Julius Caesar’s assassination, the cast decided instead to act out President Trump’s assassination.  When the New Left does not get their way, there is no end to their plethora of infantile meltdowns.  They desire the New World Order RIGHT NOW!  The immanent danger of radical Islam on our nation is not even on their radar.  Sanctuary cities for criminals are welcome, and there is no respect for American distinctiveness.   People who disagree with them are homophobic or Islamaphobic.  They have no desire of a peaceful protest, and want to shut down the entire voice of opposition.  Their constituents are the Muslim Brotherhood, the Deep State, nearly all of the media, Black Lives Matter, Progressives, college students, a great many Democrats, and the leadership in Washington, D.C. that Donald Trump refers to as the swamp.  This is a massive radical left wing movement that is on a mission to forever change the complexion of America.  They do not like the Christian foundation upon which this nation was built.  The left has always screamed “tolerance,” yet ironically they are totally intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them.  The new left has torn down statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson.  They desire to pursue the destruction of the statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson next.  The current leftist movement constantly refers to “white privilege,” and this term has now morphed to “white supremacy.”  They have taken over college campuses and will not even allow for freedom of speech.

  As a boy and young man, I thought the Old Left were people out of touch with the values of America.  The New Left however, bears little resemblance to the Old Left.  They are on a mission to forever destroy our submission to the Ten Commandments, take away our freedoms, erase American distinctiveness, not allow American patriotism, nor celebrate our blessings and success.  Any discerning Christian can feel the vice rapidly enclosing on us and threatening our freedoms and our way of life.  If we survive as a nation, it will be the result of the Lord’s intervention.  Pray without ceasing for our federal, state and local governments, our nation’s law makers and court systems, our schools, and for our president, but mostly…

Pray For Revival In America!

Linda Sarsour Calls for ‘Jihad’ Against Trump Administration – VIDEO July 07, 2017

Let me analyze Islamic activist Linda Sarsour’s incredible goals and desires:  She desires to declare a Jihad against President Trump and his administration because he wants to protect Americans from Sharia Law driven followers of Allah, who seek to take over the west and the world.  Incredibly, she is NOT doing this in Oman or Sudan, but right here in America.   Why do we not hear an immediate public outcry?  Former President Obama filled our government with Muslim Brotherhood activists.  Our dumbed down populace are ignorant of the goals of Islam.  We need spiritual and political leaders to come to the forefront and defend our freedoms.  My only question is where in tarnation is the Secret Service?  How about locking her up and throwing away the key?  Is the entire government in cahoots with “Progressives?”  She is calling to “take out” our president, not in privacy with her radical peers, but while speaking in a public setting.  Make no mistake – her desire to declare a Jihad against President Trump is the equivalent of seeking an assassination attempt.  That is the idea she is planting into the minds of her peers.  In Christ, Pastor Steve  <><

Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American anti-Israel activist who helped organize the nationwide Women’s March the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, called for ‘jihad,” or holy war, against the Trump administration last weekend.
Sarsour was speaking in Chicago at the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group that the Investigative Project on Terrorism notes was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-funding prosecution, and was allegedly “created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States in the early 1980s. (However, the group itself traces its origins to the formation of the Muslim Student Association in 1963.)
ISNA has been described as “the largest umbrella group of Muslims in North America.” President Barack Obama met with ISNA’s president in 2015, despite the group’s controversial views and alleged ties to radical movements.

Linda Sarsour Calls for ‘Jihad’ Against Trump Administration – VIDEO

Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American anti-Israel activist who helped organize the nationwide Women’s March the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, called for ‘jihad,” or holy war, against the Trump administration last weekend.
Sarsour was speaking in Chicago at the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group that the Investigative Project on Terrorism notes was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-funding prosecution, and was allegedly “created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States in the early 1980s. (However, the group itself traces its origins to the formation of the Muslim Student Association in 1963.)
ISNA has been described as “the largest umbrella group of Muslims in North America.” President Barack Obama met with ISNA’s president in 2015, despite the group’s controversial views and alleged ties to radical movements.
Quoting the Prophet Muhammad, Sarsour said: “A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad.” She then added:
And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts us from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.
The audience applauded.
The context of Sarsour’s remarks indicate that she meant a jihad using words. However, the term has also been used to describe violent struggle, including terrorism, against non-Muslims or against governments described as enemies.
In her speech, Sarsour also spoke about the importance of Muslims supporting other “oppressed” groups in the U.S. in their struggles — and talked about her experience representing Palestinians in those movements. “I don’t have to choose do I not be too Palestinian this day … I have been a living example of what it means to be whole-heartedly all of me, in whatever space that I am in,” she said.
She added: “I will not be in a space where any group or any organization or any individual tells me that there’s a part of my identity that is not welcomed,” a privilege not accorded to liberal Jews or Zionists who march for the “oppressed,” as excluded Jewish lesbians recently found out (also in Chicago).
Sarsour also urged those present to divert donations away from building mosques and towards “investing in leadership, our next generation.” She said donors within the community should split their donations between assistance to Muslims abroad and support for local organizations — and “not just building masaajid [mosques].”
She also urged them to donate to Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a Democrat who is running for governor in Michigan, and would be that state’s first Muslim governor. She attacked “establishment Democrats” who, she said, had blocked Muslims from succeeding within the Democratic Party in the past, and said that El-Sayed would change that.
Sarsour concluded by warning ISNA not to stop being outraged, and not to “normalize” the Trump administration.
Update: New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Democrat who has often criticized Sarsour in the past, warned in a statement Thursday that Sarsour’s words should be taken “very seriously”: “Words matter. Attacks on the police, like the one New York suffered yesterday, are precipitated by violent slogans. Sarsour is very dangerous.”

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.

Blessings, Pastor Steve

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!
