Moving On...

Any consistent readers of this blog will know that I believed George Bush would remain in office beyond his alloted term. I voted, and prayed for Barrack Obama throughout the amazingly theatrical election campaign of 2008, but also felt that the people were celebrating too early on November 5th, and I felt that the most demonic, and evil way for the Devil (using his puppet, Bush) to strike would be through thwarting the peaceful transfer of power January 20th. Obviously I was wrong about that, and I apologize even as I continue sighing with relief (yes, nearly 2 months later).

Thanks to many laws passed by the Bush administration, it has become ridiculously easy for a president to declare a state of emergency, and/or martial law in the event of a terrorist attack, natural disaster, economic meltdown, or political assassination. These bills have good, solid, reassuring names like the USA PATRIOT Act, and the "National Security and Homeland Security Directive" (which maps a new martial law plan that is so shocking, the US Congress was not allowed to read or review it!) Unfortunately, even though we have a new leader, who promises to guide us in a new direction, these laws are still in effect, and if they are not repealed and disbanded for the anti-democratic poison that they are, our civil liberties will remain in limbo.

There is a move behind the scenes, in the headlines and buried deep: a move towards a New World Order. It is an agenda whose roots stretch deeper than any one person, and whose planning begun long before the year 2000. This New World Order plan has been implemented in stages, slowly over generations, but George W Bush spearheaded an amazing advance on the agenda's behalf in a very short time. Considering how little it would take now for the president to excuse a declaration of Martial law, I'd say the last six months of Bush's presidency were the most suspenseful:

  • Georgia invaded, bombed and plundered a separatist region within their borders, which had Russian sympathies; this led to the Russian invasion of Georgia in August
  • There was a massive hurricane named Ike that slammed into the Texas coast that crippled our gas supply temporarily (lots of stations ran out of gas for days at a time where I live). Ike is the third most destructive hurricane to make landfall in recorded history! It happened less than seven days before the economic downward spiral began with the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September.
  • A brigade of US Army Troops was sent from Iraq to the United States, to be on call to "quell domestic dissent" if needed. This action effectively revoked the Posse Comitatus Act but went largely unpublished, and was shortly followed by some of the best and worst swings in stock market history, topped off with John McCain's presidential campaign suspension stunt (which really spooked me!). What's more, at this time, members of Congress were reportedly threatened with Martial Law, if they did not pass the $700+ Billion banker bailout in October.
  • Election night came, and Barrack Obama won by a landslide (I was overjoyed to see it). He gave his acceptance speech in Chicago, between two large, transparent, bullet-proof panels. Obama was wise and sober after the election, his security was tight, and he wasted no time in beginning to fill cabinet seats. A lot of peoples prayers were also going out for him. The world celebrated with America then. Two weeks later: Mumbai was attacked by a coordinated team of terrorists, who spread out in the city, hunting for Americans and British tourists in November.
  • The most threatening event of them all: On December 27th, Israel began bombing the Gaza strip with advanced missiles, some containing white phosphorous (which is strictly forbidden in civilian areas by the Geneva conventions). Thousands of people including hundreds of small children were murdered by the Israeli army during the next three weeks. Countless more were badly wounded. This exchange between Israel and Hamas lasts three times as long as the famous "six days war" of 1967, it is largely one-sided, with Israeli troops dying more frequently from friendly fire than enemy fire, and suffering 14 losses total, even after their ground invasion. The Israeli government refused to allow journalists into Gaza, to accurately report the gross human right violations being committed by their aggression. This atrocity goes on until right before the inauguration in January.
Thanks be to God that this dreadful takeover did not happen! In the aftermath of inauguration day, I began a series of changes in my own life, taking advantage of what I see as bonus time. We aren't out of the woods yet. The enemy is planning, scheming, profiting, and well positioned in the world. The major business, media and political leaders of America are still actually meeting each year at the Bohemian Grove to worship the ancient Babylonian demon Moloch. Officially, Christianity is in very bad shape.

The only hope for the future of our souls lies in the light of God's truth. I have teetered on the edge of a dark abyss, searching out information on the enemy, trying to figure out the devil's motives. Focusing on the New World Order conspiracy becomes a dark addiction. I believe that every person should be responsible enough to investigate our collective enemy, but that we must always venture on towards the refuge of our greatest ally! There are some aspects of the New World Order conspiracy that are either too big, or too far along for us to stop. But I promise, the whole giant monstrous thing will be stopped. As individuals working and hoping for deliverance, we must remember and reclaim the potency and power of simple love. We have to march tall as victors, overcoming the small, mundane trials of life with love, confidence, and sincerity. So many are focused far in the future, stuck in the past, or distracted by a thousand different fill in the blank options. It's like a massive trance. If you are a Christian, your number one focus and priority should be the Kingdom of God. A lot of the steady readers here already know that.

I will no longer be posting to this blog, but I won't take it down either. It is what it is. May God be glorified. I've started a new blog which will be focused mainly on the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. I will be posting to it regularly in the months to come. The address is

The Road Ahead in the Era of Responsiblity

Visit to see 47 other pictures taken on inauguration day.

On Tuesday, January 20th, just after 12pm, Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as America's 44th president. Approximately 2 million people flocked to Washington D.C. so that they could take part in this historic transfer of power. It must have been an intimidating show of support; Obama seemed calm, confident, and happy when he walked out to his seat, but when he swore in, his poise faltered in the first few lines of the oath. Conspiracy theorists everywhere are seeing that moment as a loophole in the transfer of power. But when I saw it, I was reminded of the fact that Barack Obama is a human being, facing down an army of 2 million jubilant supporters, and he was a little more nervous than he let himself show.

During the past two years, Barack Obama rose up from the ranks of campaign democrats, and successfully out-shined republican challenger John McCain, mostly fueled by peoples belief in one thing: Hope. He personified, and very eloquently expressed Hope from the very beginning. He even released a book called, "The Audacity of Hope". The hope for a change in leadership, hope for an affirmation of promises made by Civil Rights giants 40-50 years ago, and hope that we would be made to face the energy and environmental challenges that have been ignored for too long have made this rise to power possible. The first two hopes have been realized, and the third is next in line.

We have come this far on the fuel of hope, but all of the millions of people who have been mobilized so far need to start moving by another motivation. We need to step up to the plate, and change the way we relate to one another. We need to remember what it means to love our neighbors as ourselves, and we need to put that knowledge into practice. We need to see the light of the coming day of peace as something that is not coming from the white house, but is shining within our spirits, within our grasp, manifesting itself in every loving choice we make.

At this point, a lot of people are being tempted to sit back, and be passively led by our new president. The temptation is to dismiss the idea that the ball is in our court, that the challenges which face our president are facing us as well...Obama's charge and challenge is to correct this perception. That seems to be a high priority for him. His inauguration speech is a testimony of that.

We cannot see Barack Obama as our savior. We must maintain our composure, and understand that he is just a leader, who is trying to guide us in the right direction, and that the real anointing belongs to a larger group that Christ refers to as "the elect" in his explanation of the last days in Mark 13. This is a very sobering passage for any believers who are tempted to refuse their responsibilities in this day by deifying our new leader. Let me share just a few selections from it to show that Christ knew there would be real power from God in many people at the same time that there will be false saviors and false prophets in the earth. It's a very confusing time, but this is precisely as confusing as a field of wheat mixed with weeds at harvest (which is another, powerful last days parable given by Jesus in Matthew 13).


The "Elect":

Mark 13:9-11,13
"You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them. And the gospel must first be preached to all nations. Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit... All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
vs 20
If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.
vs. 27
And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
Warnings of False Saviors:

Mark 13:5-6
Jesus said to them: "Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and will deceive many.
vs 21-23
At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'Look, there he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
A lot is going to be happening all at once; the "birth pains" of the last day are in full swing right now. We've got to set our eyes on the narrow road that leads to righteousness, take up our crosses, our burdens, and follow through, no matter what happens. We can overcome as long as we follow through.

George Bush was the kind of leader who told this nation to sit back, relax, and shop while he took care of the challenges and problems that we encountered under his reign. W assured the people that he would take care of security after 9-11-01 (our borders are still embarrassingly porous and vulnerable, and America has made more enemies under Bush's leadership than ever before). He also promised to rescue New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and let four crucial days go by without making any effort. Mark 13 contains the famous line, "Abomination that causes desolation", which I think is still clearly Bush. So far, Barack Obama has only inherited desolation, caused by the last abomination.

I think the main red flag we should look for from Barack Obama's leadership is if he ever tries to take away the burden of responsibility that he is placing on us now. That is the real test of the spirit behind him.

God does not seek to glorify any one man above his own begotten son, who was sent to Earth with the wonderful news of his Father's Kingdom burning in his heart, eager to be told. Jesus was embraced by many common, simple people; recognized and accepted for the light of the world that He is. Some teachers accepted him as well, but he was eventually murdered by a conspiracy of religious leaders. After his resurrection, there sprang a church that was anointed in power, filled with Joy, infecting the Roman empire with it's message of hope, love, King Jesus, and his coming Kingdom. The message of that kingdom has been lost over time, and the church is not the spotless, righteous institution that it wishes it were. Likewise, in this day, there will not be any single person who will prepare the earth for the return of Jesus. Jesus is the head of a body of promise. In proper birth, the head comes out first, and the feet are last. So will it be in the last days; not another child (like Jesus) but the completion of the body of Christ in a group of equally blessed, equally necessary people working together in common purpose (the feet).

The distinction between one messiah, and a group of anointed people is so crucial in developing our understanding, and our faith in what the last days will be like. It is not proud to believe and hope to be a part of God's plan to change the world, and to devote your life with integrity and honesty to that hope. If you focus on God, and his power and promise of deliverance, and you pledge to do whatever you can to serve and help God, He will use you. God is recruiting from the highways and bi-ways, calling all who are willing to take part in his great celebration of marrying his son (Christ) to his Bride (the real church, the remnant around the world). If you want to make the world a better place, figure out the best way that you can take action on that desire, and go for it! The time for this sort of revolutionary responsibility is right now.

1 Corinthians 1:26-31

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”

On Trial: Zion vs. Zionism

Daniel 7: 9-10

"And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment white as snow, And the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire; A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.

The court was seated, And the books were opened
The passage above comes from the middle of Daniel's most famous end-times vision; of four beasts rising up from the sea, (combined to match precisely with the beast from the sea in Revelation 13) and a "Little horn", or pompous, and boastful leader of an empire in the days leading up to judgment. It reinforces the reality that these final days are like an actual trial, for each and every soul on the planet. As I said in my last post, a lot of religious leaders are behaving in terribly unrighteous and unmerciful ways, while thinking of themselves as prosecution attorneys for the heavenly court, and not co-defendants.

Thousands of years ago, lots of warnings were planted for believers living in the last days. These warnings have rested protected and mostly dormant in Bibles around the world. Scriptures warn of false teachings, covetous temptations, the trappings of worldliness, and the spread of false gospels. Mainstream churches sometimes ignore these passages, sometimes use them to accuse other congregations nearby or abroad, and very rarely compare them to their own behavior. Because of that, the benefits and wisdom of these warnings isn't really clear. and a great majority of so-called Christians will be caught unawares and unprepared in the time of his return.

After a few intense years of studying the scriptures, and coming from a strictly evangelical childhood, I have come to believe that very few Christians even know the full gospel. What is being passed as the gospel for saving souls is not complete. It is a mass-produced, misinterpreted, cliffs-notes version of the real thing. This is a gospel that pays lip service, but ignores the responsibility of those who are called of God. It produces millions of spiritual babes, who are then left in a perpetual state of spiritual infancy through a lack of mature nourishment, or proper direction.

There are two sections of "The gospel" according to the New Testament: The Milk and the Meat.
Paul constantly taught about that difference, using that same analogy. Jesus also talked about it on occasion, but in parables and riddle sentences like; "If I tell you of earthly things and you do not believe me, how can you believe me when I tell you of the things of heaven?"


The milk of the Gospel is this:

Jesus Christ is the son of God, who came into the earth to teach us how to live righteously, and who died on the cross as a payment for our sins. It is by him that all who love him (and obey him) will be saved from eternal death through faith in Him, and by the grace of God. There are none who haven't sinned, and all who are saved by the blood of Christ will have eternal life.

The meat of the Gospel is this:

God plans on establishing his kingdom on earth. This establishment happens first in the hearts of people, then spills out into the rest of the earth. At an appointed time, there will be a massive awakening of the Holy Spirit in the living body of Christ. All that is wrong, sour, and bad about the earth will be removed; bound up for a millennium as the earth is restored to a state very close to what Eden might have been like. This advance of the army of God will be swift and definitive. All who follow Christ and serve him will have a place in that kingdom, for a thousand years of peace (after a very dark, relatively short time of tribulation). Most importantly: all must be ready to prepare the way for Christ to return. Those that have lived in readiness, and died before the return will be resurrected in this "Last day"; those who are alive when the time comes for it to be established will be a living army of God, the "feet on the ground" who will be led step by step, sealed and set aside, to subdue God's enemies by nothing less than the Power of his Holy Spirit.


It is very important to remember that Jesus himself preached the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. That was the subject of most of his parables, and in Luke the first thing Jesus preaches after his baptism is: "Repent (change your hearts and lives) for the Kingdom of God is near!"

The way the evangelical movement glosses over this meat is very clever. The term "Kingdom of God" has been replaced with "Kingdom of Heaven". The power of God's promises are all stored away in an ethereal heavenly realm, to be enjoyed after death (or after a pre-tribulation "rapture"). Under these circumstances, Christians can see themselves as mighty warriors of the faith, even if they don't know how to put on their armor properly, or even how to swing their swords in the present world. If our eternal destiny is simply hinged on the passive belief that Christ died for our sins, there's not a whole lot left for us to do. Many Christians are content in simply watching the world come apart around them, because they are waiting for their rescue. They see themselves as damsels in distress, and Christ in the clouds as their White knight. It is a completely helpless, passive, and lazy approach to the gospel. According to this doctrine, the world is to be merely endured, and not overcome. But God does not promise to raise up damsels in the last day: he promises warriors.

In the days of Christ and the early church, spirits of the adversary were already at work trying to corrupt and compromise the Gospel. The entire book of 2 Peter is a reminder of our responsibility, potential, and destiny in Christ (1/3rd of it is also a warning against false teachings). He wrote it because he knew he was close to death, and he knew that the enemy would try to disconnect God's people from the power of faith in His promises. Within a few hundred years of the death of Christ, this effort succeeded. The body of Christ, and the potency of the gospel of the Kingdom of God were buried and bound by the religion of Christianity. Cells within that body were born, lived fruitful lives, and have died to be reserved for the last day, but the body as a whole has been dead for two millennial days. Darkness has crept in to take back the dominion of light that was established by Jesus Christ. But this light is being restored even now. Eyes and ears are being opened.

We, who have been born just before the first early morning rays of the third millennium after the crucifixion of Jesus, are blessed because of the promise of resurrection. Cells of this body who are alive now will venture forth into all the world, swiftly, and sure of foot, carrying the message of God's kingdom to all the corners of the earth. God has been preparing his messengers for years, working with each of us at a pace that we can bear, faithfully attending to all of our hearts with His personal attention.

Time and time again the prophets speak of the "army of God", the "wise", the "remnant", but the most common scriptural reference to this group of people is "Zion". The Zion of the last days is a group of believers who overcome the trappings of Babylon, the seduction of Satan, and the corruption of their own flesh. It is Zion that will prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. It is Zion that will crawl into the windows of Babylon like thieves in the night. It is Zion that will conquer the full Promised Land of earth, as the army of Joshua did in Israel.

What's more, this true army of Zion will not use Scud missiles, or tank shells filled with white phosphorous (which can burn through flesh like it was hot butter, right to the bone in seconds) in it's process of overcoming. The weapon that Zion will use in this conquest is the truth of the promise of God's kingdom. And the enemies of this Zion will be burned by the Glory of the coming of the Lord. That distinction is very crucial. Zionism is another doctrine of racial supremacy (just like Nazism). Nothing more, nothing less. Innocent people are suffering under the creed of Zionism because it is being guided by a spirit of evil.

If Barack Obama safetly takes office on Tuesday, and George Bush finally leaves the White House, I plan on writing a book about the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, because it's a message that needs to be remembered. Over the last four years I have been engaged in a race against time to understand the nature of the last days, and the message of the scriptures. The full Gospel, and the promise of the Kingdom of God is that message.

I believe that anything could happen in the next four days, because it only took 3 days for the son of God to be arrested, tried, executed and resurrected. Plus, God's judgment will strike swiftly and suddenly, catching the world off-guard. But during these four years I have learned that the identity of the final Antichrist is not as important as the destiny and duty of the body of Christ. There have been antichrists since the first century AD, and there will continue to be antichrists until God decides to declare his great and terrible Day. Because of this, all who are a part of the body of Christ must always take up the cross of resisting the power that is behind these antichrists. The purpose of all cells of the body of Christ is to demonstrate to those around them what it means to live as though God were enthroned here on earth, ruling over us all, setting rules that we must follow as subjects of his kingdom. Thankfully, the rules are just, kind, and common sense.

We must believe that God is close in order to perceive that he truly is. We must live as though we were already in the kingdom of God, because as long as we have the light of Christ within us, we are. The rules and guidelines of this kingdom are saturating the scripture. It is our responsibility to take them seriously, and to act obediently. When we choose to do what is right, honest, merciful, loving and peaceful, we are advancing the light of Christ. We must be bold on behalf of truth, and not allow the corruption of fear, pride, or hatefulness to overcome us. We can only survive this battle if we are equally aware of the danger around us, and the power behind us. Our responsibility is to prepare ourselves spiritually for the time that the last trumpet sounds, and to demonstrate our readiness by living as strangers in this world, obeying the rules of the Kingdom of God even when no one else does. If anything disconnects us from love, we must resist it. And we must remind our children, our parents, our siblings and neighbors about the truly good news of the Kingdom of God.

Gaza, Zionism and the Ongoing Muslim Holocaust

On December 27th, Israel began bombarding the Gaza strip with missile air attacks, wiping out civilians without regard, blasting densely populated areas near schools in their supposed pursuit of Hamas leaders and retaliation for rocket fire. The entire middle east is up in arms because of the attacks, which have left 421 Palestinians dead (as of Friday, January 2nd), and thousands more injured so far. The Isreali army says that their campaign of state-sponsored terrorism is a response to smaller rockets that have been fired by Palestinian militants from Gaza. So far in the fighting, less than a dozen Israelis have died from Palestinian rockets. I do not mean to discount the value of life by saying, "Less than a dozen", but that is the comparison; more than 30 Palestinians dead for every 1 Israeli. There is no honor, or courage in this sort of overwhelming force.

It absolutely amazes me that Zionists (both Jew and Christian) can possibly imagine that they are sitting under the blessing of God when they spill the blood of innocent civilians so eagerly, and defiantly claim to be taking the high road while doing it. Jeremiah 6: 13-15a describes this exact mentality:

“From the least to the greatest their lives are ruled by greed. From prophets to priests, they are all frauds. They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their disgusting actions? Not at all—they don’t even know how to blush!"
People who think this way (and there are plenty of them) are so drunk with the wine of Babylon (That is, filled with a self-appointed sense of piety) that they have lost their sense of dignity, and conscience. They are acting, before God and all the world, like the spiritual equivalent of angry, drunken, violent jerks: and they see absolutely nothing wrong with their abusive behavior. But unlike normal drunks, they aren't just embarrassing and/or hurting themselves. In the case of this past week, hundreds of people have died, some of them schoolchildren; thousands have been wounded; power is lost to hospitals in Gaza, food supplies have been cut off, nobody knows when those crucial supply lines will be reconnected.

The atrocity of life in that narrow strip of land right now is beyond the scope of most people's comprehension. And so rather than force ourselves to go through the painful process of learning how to wrap our minds around it, we put it out of our heads. We rationalize to ourselves, "It can't be that bad." We thank God that we aren't Muslim (unless you are, in which case you probably thank Allah that you are, because the one true God is merciful to all who are oppressed, and fair in judging both the righteous, and the unrighteous).

In the 1940's, a lot of people around the world were hearing rumors of terrible mistreatment, demonization, and persecution of the Jews under Adolf Hitler. There were stories from those who escaped the Reich from time to time. Most would shake their heads and think about how terrible it was that the Jews were being singled out that way, and then concentrate on other matters of the war, or the world, or their own lives. People didn't allow themselves to believe that a holocaust actually existed until after it stopped, when they saw the evidence of it first hand. There was a blind spot that covered the eyes of the world 65 years ago. The same thing is happening right now in the world. Only this time some Jews are the attackers, and not the victims. The alliance between the United States and Israel has rendered the peacekeeping power of the United Nations obsolete. And the target of their war machine is Islam.

Think about it in these terms: There are three Monotheistic faiths that all claim Abraham as their father. The first Antichrist was Nero, who persecuted the Christians; the second Antichrist was Hitler, who persecuted the Jews; Our current Antichrist is Bush, who persecutes Muslims.

I believe that the Iraq war is not so much a terrible failure as it is a twisted, mislabled extermination project against the people of Iraq. This is also the motive behind the so-called "Global War On Terrorism". There is a massive, and totally inhumane campaign of American Empirical expansion (supported by Israel) which seeks to subdue and trample the entire Eurasian area, reforming them in an American image. It is not democracy that we wish to spread throughout that region, for Hamas is a democratically elected ruling party, and we are not coming to their assistance. We also didn't defend Lebanon from being riddled with advanced Israeli missles a couple of years ago, and they are another democracy. In fact, America's best friends in the region are Israel, and Saudi Arabia. Both nations are serious violators of the basic human rights and liberties that our constitution swears to defend and uphold...Our proud, patriotic, pro-democracy self image is a complete farce.

Friends, we must all pray that we never lose our sensitivity to God's impartial eye. He is a fair judge, who does not show any favoritism, but judges each of us based on our hearts and our actions. All those who repent must first come to terms with this fair, all seeing, all knowing power of God; but the principal can be easy to forget. That is exactly what's happened to the religious/political establishment of our time, in America and Israel. In the immediate aftermath of 9-11, the wounds of our national trauma were bandaged with bumper stickers that said "God Bless America". We are going boldly forth into the world, torturing, poisoning, exterminating both enemies and innocents along the way, and we believe that God is going to bless us...God will deliver the weak from their oppressors. He sees through the boastful, self-righteous posturing that has been used as a blanket to cover serious, ongoing crimes against humanity. God is very near to us, and near to them. This will not continue indefinitely. Vengeance will be his. But never forget that there is a remnant that belongs to the Lord in every Nation (including Israel). Those in Christ have brothers and sisters everywhere. God will sort them out. One of my favorite statements of Paul is, "Be not deceived, God will not be mocked: every person will reap what they sew".

Jeremiah 7:1-15

The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: "Stand in the gate of the LORD’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all you men of Judah who enter these gates to worship the LORD. Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place. Do not trust in these deceptive words: 'This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.'

"For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.

"Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make offerings to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, 'We are delivered!'—only to go on doing all these abominations? Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? You know, I too am watching, declares the LORD.

Go now to my place that was in Shiloh, where I made my name dwell at first, and see what I did to it because of the evil of my people Israel. And now, because you have done all these things, declares the LORD, and when I spoke to you persistently you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer, therefore I will do to the house that is called by my name, and in which you trust, and to the place that I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Shiloh. And I will cast you out of my sight, as I cast out all your kinsmen, all the offspring of Ephraim.

Romans 13 in the News: Manipulation and Manifestation

The above video is at least a year old, but it's a chilling expose' of Bush's Department of Homeland Security approaching clergymen across the country, and training them to use their propaganda, mixed with Romans 13 as a way to pacify their congregations in the event of Martial Law. The preachers are being prepared to minimize dissent by painting any declaration of Martial Law, for any reason, to be the action of God's appointed leader, whom they should trust.

This is one of many warning signs that the Bush administration fully plans to still be in power when the nation descends into a new level of chaos, and that they have no problem with exploiting God and Christ to obtain their empirical goals. The "Posse Comitatus" law, mentioned in the video, which strictly forbids US troops from policing American streets has been recently undone, by the deployment of a brigade of troops who are fresh out of the Iraq war-zone to a military base in Georgia...their mission objectives are explicitly to put a lid on domestic dissent "just in case" there is a reason for martial law to be declared. Troops were sent to New Orleans after Katrina, and local police forcefully removed guns from citizens, including an old woman, that was tackled by a 250lb police officer. Strange policing actions also took place from the military and local police during the disastrous floods in the Mississippi region this summer.

These are localized practice-runs for a national transformation to martial law. Law Enforcement and Military are both working to train their people to disarm and consider all citizens to be potential enemies of the state. That's the sort of mentality they had in communist Russia. This is all very real, and painfully close. Annon recently shared this mp3 link to a very interesting radio broadcast from John Stadtmiller that paints an eerily possible picture of what could happen between now and the inauguration. It's well worth a listen, if you haven't heard it yet, you can come back to read the rest.

The problem we face, of course, is the fact that Romans 13 seems to support the idea of Christians submitting to ruling kings and governments without exception. Is that really the case, or is there something deeper going on?

Romans 13:1-5

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
By isolating the first 5 verses of this chapter, clergy can advise submission to even the most despotic, and lawless of "rulers". Logic would suggest that only the cunning and deceptive minds of despotic rulers would think to use this passage as a way to pacify the masses. When we are interpreting scripture, it is always important for us to remember context. This is not limited to a chapter, or a book, but the entirety of Scriptures works together to preach one great message. There are paradoxes littered throughout, but no real contradictions. That statement is much easier said than learned, but it is true.

It must be established that our allegiance is to God first, and then to the "ruling authorities" that God has sanctioned. If our earthly leaders are in defiance to God, we must stand strong in the light that has been given to us by Christ, and be prepared to die, if necessary, for the sake of our faith. There is no compromise to that order of authority. When we are told to serve our earthly leaders (or ourselves, or anything) above our heavenly king, we are being lied to by a very old, very sinister fallen angel who twists scriptures to promote his own agenda.

In the desert, when he tempted Christ, the Devil offered to give Jesus dominion over all the kingdoms of the world, if Christ would only bow before him. This temptation demonstrates his ultimate desire to divert people's worship of God. I have no doubt that Lucifer was whispering into the minds of the mob that judged Jesus. John 19:15 reveals this twisted reasoning:

(The mob) shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!"
"Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked.
"We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.
Romans 13, then is a very dangerous passage, if and when it is misinterpreted.

Verse 1 says that "every soul must be subject to the governing authorities", which implies that if a leader does not honor the laws that he has sworn to uphold, that leader is in violation to Romans 13. Only people who violate the law have any reason to fear the law. The Antichrist is described in scripture as being a very boastful, strong and fierce leader who "seeks to change the times and laws" in Daniel 7:25. He is called "The Lawless one" in several other prophetic references. The fact remains on display, that while Bush swore to uphold the constitution on inauguration day, he has actually moved in strong, strident steps to dismantle that constitution (which is the "governing authority" that is above him). Our rights and liberties have been stolen right before our very eyes. Sainthood: the compulsion to love your neighbors and to love your enemies, is now illegal according to the Patriot Act.

I see the constitution as something that God has sanctioned, because the heart of this governing document is wise, and just and fair.

The severe partisanship of the religious right, on the other hand, is not very fair. Think about this: Were leaders of the religious right citing Romans 13 in defense of Bill Clinton? Most pastors actually encouraged people's loathing of Clinton...whipping them up to a partisan frenzy that helped deliver the 2000, and 2004 presidential elections to George Bush. There is a massive anti-government, anti-tax sentiment that partially defines the religious right, and this sentiment runs completely contrary to Roman's 13, not just in verses 1-5, but the entire chapter.

Romans 13:6-7
For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
I believe that Paul is actually warning us not to engage in violent resistance to tyranny, for he knew that the Christians in Rome, and true followers of Christ in the future would be persecuted without cause, just as Jesus was. That persecution can stand as a testimony, as long as we remain blameless, refraining from any evil, even in our resistance to tyranny. This principle was Echoed by the apostle Peter, in the other, oft-interpreted teaching from 2 Peter 2:13-25.

We are commanded to "Bless those that curse us, bless and do not curse". Paul also taught, "Do not confront evil with evil, but overcome evil with good". That is one of the ultimate expressions of self denial. I don't think any of us would have the strength or the will to behave that way without the spirit of Christ within us. But we can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us.

Dick Chaney is on the receiving end of that sword wielded by the governing authority of the law of the land. In the past three days, he was indicted in a tiny Texas town. This is a time of consequences, a time to pay the piper. The problem is, the Bush Administration is very dangerous, especially when cornered. Justice will be served, if not sooner, certainly later...(and not much later at that).

Romans 13:8-14
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

The Twilight Zone of the Bush Years.

For this blog, and for thousands of people who already recognize the way that George Bush's presidency has mirrored the rule of Adolph Hitler, and who understand the serious threat that this country has been facing under his rule...we are in a strange time. Considering that these are the waning hours of Bush's legitimate claim to office, I see this time as a "Twilight Zone" of his rule. It is a time where Bush will either spring the trap that he seems to have been preparing throughout his presidency, or he will fade into obscurity. All chips are on the table, but the odds seem to be in favor of a relatively smooth transition into an Obama presidency.

  • The war drums that are beating towards Iran, Pakistan, and most recently Russia have not led us to an actual war.
  • America has survived through the seventh anniversary of 9-11 and beyond without being shocked once again by a massive Terrorist Attack. Thusly, Bush has not declared martial law, as many suspected he would.
  • The greedy practices of deregulation have been exposed as the utmost in foolishness, and have decapitated several major corporations in the past months.
  • Although millions of people have starved in the past year because of the failing world economy, and billions have just gone deeper into debt, it seems that dramatic government intervention and the promise of change have seemed to steer us clear of a financial Armageddon. (despite the fact that the stock market has continued to tumble, regular people are feeling more confident about the future in general.)
We have just passed through a historic, dramatic and turbulent election campaign, and it seems like the Democratic party has emerged on the other side completely triumphant. Everywhere, from the News Stations to neighborhoods and villages around the world, people are calling, "Peace and Safety!" They see the dawning rays of a new and better day ahead, and they are so beaten down and weary from the pitch darkness that has defined this millennium so far, that they are basking in it's glory before it has actually arrived.

Even though Bush has promised to make the transition of government as easy as possible, and even though he praised President-Elect Barrack Obama, he's still in power for the next couple of months. The coast isn't clear quite yet. From what I've gathered in my study of George Bush, it seems like he goes out of his way to proclaim and promise the exact opposite of what he actually does. He speaks in opposites. When he said "I am a uniter, not a divider", he actually has worked to polarize and split up the nation into idealogical trenches. When he said "War is a last resort", he meant he was scheming up a way to convince the American people that they should support an upcoming war. When he said he is "Compassionate", he has proven himself to be heartless, merciless, and completely out of touch with almost everyone. When he said, "America does not torture", we have found out that America does torture in quite barbaric ways. Knowing this history makes me believe that when Bush says, "I'm going to make this an easy transition", it means something else entirely. Right now he is focused on passing through as much regulation as he can before the scheduled transfer of power takes place. Bill Clinton did the same thing in late 2000, and most people are so fed up with the wacky, can't-seem-to-do-anything-right ways of Bush that they are already thinking of the President Elect as the President. They don't care what Bush does these days, which gives him plenty of opportunity to plan his surprise stay in office. Bush claiming that it will be a peaceful and cooperative transfer of power might also mean that Barrack Obama is in serious danger, because he is in the way of something much bigger.

Let me be perfectly clear by saying that I voted for Obama, and I hope that there is a peaceful transfer of power. I hope that I'm wrong about the timing of these days, and about the identity of the Antichrist. But I've done a lot more homework than most people can tolerate, and I know our current president's style and habits very well. I hope that Obama takes his security needs seriously, because the foolish, fundamentalist, boy-king who has promised to play nice is in reality a monstrous man who was aware of, and involved in the 9-11 attacks. Bush is a part of that evil cabal that destroyed the lives of so many over seven years ago. That's why Osama Bin Laden was never caught. That's why he sounded so calm, eloquent, and rehearsed in the statements he made on that day. That's why he dragged his feet and actively interfered with the 9-11 investigation. Bush most likely was not the mastermind, but he has been the spokesman for the true conspirators of 9-11. That's why Barrack Obama's life is at risk.

I do not believe this will be a peaceful transfer of power, because America was taken over 8 years ago. We were the victims of a coup that we never came to terms with. The evidence of it is screaming at us to pay attention to it, but many will not...can not. The real truth about what is going on in the world is so much uglier than what most people are ready to accept. Most people can accept the fact that the Iraq war was based on lies, but they are not willing or able to accept the fact that the entire War on Terrorism, and the invasion of Afghanistan were also based on a lie. Most people can agree the 9-11 was a day that many of our nations defenses failed simultaneously, but they are not willing to consider that 9-11 was an inside job. It's entirely possible for almost anyone to become educated about the events of that day and other world events, but most people resist the truth about it, without even being aware of their resistance.

President Bush has shaped this century so far in a profoundly vulgar way. His legacy is one of torture, of lies: the very dictionary definition of Evil. It amazes me that people still allow themselves to believe that he could be a born again Christian, filled by the Holy Ghost, and representing Christ on earth as a member of his church. People who think this way have not held Bush accountable for his claims; they have not tested his spirit.

The truth is that Bush is a documented demon worshipper, who took part in a Black Mass and was "born again" unto Satan in 1968. The truth about this man has been exposed, if people would only seek it out. The dots of documents and facts have all aligned themselves before the whole world, and they are begging to be connected. But only some people are connecting these dots.

People everywhere want change, though. They want the restoration of law, and of peace, and of hope for the future. They want change, but they're not quite sure how to get it. Everywhere, people are groaning in tribulation. They are suffering under the weight of a world-wide non-stop "War on Terrorism", they are going hungry because of the recent spike in food prices. The earth itself is becoming more and more furious over time, at the same time that species of plants and animals are dying at an alarmingly accelerated rate. This is a historic time of tribulation for the entire world. It is a time of judgment, because the majority of western believers have abandoned Christ for the sake of Christianity. They have been led like sheep into a very dark place. We do not need a man with common sense and optimism to save us, we need divine intervention, and a change of our own hearts.

There is a spiritual war in full swing at this very moment. But you have to realize that God is watching, is very close, and is seeing who is faithful and who is not in order to understand the reason for the increase in suffering around the world. God is judging the Prosperity movement as guilty through this economic meltdown, he is judging the war-mongering, gay-bashing moral bankruptcy in the church by allowing curses, not blessings, to pour upon America these days. If people would repent, would change their hearts and lives, and start acting out of the Love that is available to us all, we would see the world truly improve. That's what's needed for change. Not one good man as our leader, but what my roommate refers to as a "Revolution of the individual". Everyone needs to understand that the Spiritual battlefield is as close as our own minds, and victories and defeats are tallied by the decisions we make, by our every action. The judgment of the world is not something outside of ourselves, that is being judged independently of ourselves. It is here, now, and we are all a part of it. All will be judged by a standard that has been written in stone, and preserved for thousands of years. The only way to ensure that you will escape the wrath of God is to serve Him, and Love Him with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength; to respond when you hear Him in your conscience; to love your neighbors (all of them! Muslim, Jewish, Religious Right, Gay, Straight, Red, Yellow, Black, and White).

Repentance is a very basic message, the problem is that it's not taken very seriously by most. Let's not give our new elected officials the responsibility of our repentance, because they cannot take it. Let's not hope to move on and gloss over the mistakes that we have made, because we will continue going in the wrong direction if we do not first confess our mistakes, and start out on a new course. This day is an opportunity to repent, I hope that many come to realize it, and take advantage of our shared opportunity.

The Hegelian Principal and the Global Economic Meltdown.

Recent events have shaken a few more people awake about how close we are to general collapse and total chaos. The recent "economic meltdown" is a classic case of the Hegelian Principle (which is the main tool used by shadow governments for advancing the New World Order plan). What is the Hegelian Principle? It is a simple, formula of: Problem, Reaction, Solution. This method helps the few to gather more and more power over the many without is the reason that governments attack their own people in "False Flag" operations, and it is unfolding before our eyes.

Problem: Various major banks have begun to implode in rapid succession. The credit market froze up solid for several crucial weeks, and will probably continue moving at a trickle until...

Reaction: Panic!! Through a combined effort of mainstream media, coordinated bankers, and political leaders preaching an economic doomsday. The whole world watches as global stock markets tumble, credit markets freeze up, hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars are thrown at the free markets, but nothing seems to be working.

Solution: This is still being worked out in real time, but you'd better believe the plans began behind closed doors a long time ago, and the brand of the beast is all over it. We are witnessing the formation of a financial New World Order.

The best way to spot "Problem, Reaction, Solution", is to pay attention to who benefits from a major problem. The motive is in the solution, which is always something that the public would not accept under normal circumstances. For instance, the U.S.A. Patriot Act would have never been passed without the attacks of 9-11, even though it was written and assembled in the late 1990s.

I was wrong recently in predicting a terrorist attack on the seventh anniversary of 9-11. I admit it. My interpretation was flawed simply because I injected myself in what was being said. But what I saw originally was a period of testing between the events of 9-11, and it's seventh anniversary. And I saw that if we chose the wrong path (of vengeance, greed, corruption, and self righteousness), we would very shortly suffer the consequences...and here we are.

(As I understand it, Bush and the Illuminati as a whole, plotted planned and executed the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. If this is a surprise to you, or a "theory" that you've heard of and dismissed before, you should check out this link, this video, and start doing some serious digging. Because there's not that much time left where we will have the luxury of research. Knowledge is power. The more you learn on your own about who is manipulating what in the world today, the less confused and terrified you will be when they bring the hammer of Martial Law down on us. The Illuminati are completely exposed right now before all who will seek the truth...thanks to the internet, and the spirit of Truth.)

One of the reasons that this problem has blown up so quickly is that Major coorporations that are struggling now have gotten into in the habit of keeping their troubles secret until they implode. In this "Free market" which is based on faith, it is suicide for some businesses to disclose their troubles, when others keep their poker face set. Enron was an early manifestation of the "bad fruit" of a deregulated market. Greed, dishonesty and treachery have flourished under deregulation, like fungus grows in dark spaces.

It is very important that we recognize the spiritual reality in all of this. We, beings of flesh, are as puppets to be guided and directed by whatever Spirit we give authority to. Although we do have free choice, and we can take power from a bad spirit and offer it to God's spirit (and unfortunately vice-versa)...only by spiritual manipulation would people destroy their own future with such dedication. That's what has been happening, and our leaders (who have steered us into this terrible place that we are now) go through rituals renewing their allegiance to demonic forces on a fairly regular basis.

Lehman Brothers and Meryl Lynch went bankrupt on Monday September 15th, which started this current credit "crisis". For days after that, I, like most everybody else, watched dumbfounded as company after company, bank after bank, went under in a chain reaction. 9-11-08 was the last peaceful day before this shaking. Mark my words, things are going to get a lot worse before they start getting better for this world. This is only the beginning of a new stage.

When I specifically wrote that there would be a terrorist attack on 9-11-08, I was drawing the conclusion from a gut feeling that had haunted me since 9-11-01. The root of that feeling was that we would have seven years to repent before Satan was allowed to spring his final NWO plan on the world. The world had a window of seven years that most were blissfully unaware of. Between 9-11-01, and 9-11-08, the church was being watched very closely by God and his host.
During that time, a massive "Truth" movement grew up in the outer edges of society, and began infiltrating the whole world. While all people have the freedom to ignore such movements, the elite is very aware of it, and working furiously to put a lid on it before a critical mass of awareness is reach, and their power is taken away. This is why they are attacking society as a whole by cutting off credit. What's happening is one part Satan's attack strategy to dismantle the old economic system before introducing a new, global system...But it's also God's judgment against dishonest and greedy business practices.

The Global Stock Market represents a house that's built on sand, and it is crumbling down. People that have dedicated their lives to the Kingdom of God are living in a house that's built on rock...and they will withstand the storms that are brewing now. I know this conclusion sounds very simple, and basic, but it's the truth. If you live for Love, you will survive the storms, but if you live for the system, and for self, you will be swept away. The whole world is being judged, but it is the heart of every individual that is really being considered.

you have been serving the system, dismissing the warning signs, and waiting for somebody else to clean up the mess that we as a whole have created and allowed...change your heart! Do not be afraid of God's judgment, because it is being carried out by the source of true Justice. Engage in the battle between tangible truth and the lies that define this system. As you find light and truth, share it freely to all who seek the light. The only weapons that can really hit the enemy of God is a love for the truth, and a willingness to share light love our neighbors. The only thing that we each have the power to change in this world is the state of our care and to make the effort of repentance.

In Revelation 11, when the Lord's time to rule comes there is much rejoicing in heaven. The rulers of this world system have been ravaging the world's resources, and producing vasts amounts of polution into our skies, seas, and land. They are literally "Destroying the Earth", and if they are not stopped, none will survive. Those who are in the light already, hold fast! Deliverance is surely coming.

Rev 11:16-18
And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying:

“ We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they shall be judged,
And that You shall reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And You shall destroy those who destroy the earth.”

A coup in America, October 1st. This is the Beginning of the End.

Above is an interview with Naomi Wolf, feminist, activist, author of "The End of America" and "Give Me Liberty". In this interview, she explains that a coup was carried out, by the Bush administration threatening congress with Martial Law on October 1st. So much has happened since this "financial crisis" began. The McCain campaign was suspended; Martial Law has been introduced as a possibility, used as a threat against members of congress; New York Mayor Micheal Bloomberg has announced that he will be changing the term limits laws, and running for a third term as mayor because of this crisis; and a brigade of Army troops has been sent to Georgia, "on call" to respond to domestic dissent when martial law is actually declared. If American readers tell your friends and family, and call your district attorneys and do what Vincent Bugliosi suggested, which is to call your local District Attorney and demand that they arrest the president immediately for murder. If a soldier who has died in Iraq is from his district, he has the jurisdiction to make such an arrest. Although the odds are stacked against stopping him, I pray that he will be stopped, because the things that are planned for this planet are truly horrible.

Below is an Alex Jones interview with Naomi Wolf. In it, they discuss the rise of fascism in America, and then have an in-depth discussion of the Bush family History, and Prescott Bush's roots in the funding and establishment of Nazi Germany. The truth is so much stranger than fiction. Bush = Nazi. This is all real, the "Conspiracy Theorists" are not joking. This credit crunch is an economic attack of the very few against the many. It's a program, not an accident.

Financial Tsunami; The End of the World as We Knew it.

Article by F. William Engdahl:

The unexpected rejection by the US Congress of the Bush Administration financial rescue plan, TARP on September 29 has opened up the spectre for the first time of a 1931-style domino wave of worldwide bank failures. That is already underway across the US banking spectrum with the failure, nationalization or forced liquidation in the past two weeks of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, of the giant Washington Mutual mortgage lender, of the nation’s fourth largest deposit bank, Wachovia. That was on top of a wave of smaller bank failures that began with IndyMac in the spring. For some it is appealing and more simple to grasp the magnitude of these titanic events in the US-centered financial world by assuming it is all part of a pre-planned grand conspiracy by the Money Masters, what in the 1920s in the USA was termed the Money Trust, to control the entire financial world.

9-11 Seven Years of Ripening.

9-11-08 was the last day of peace before Hurricane Ike caused gas prices to skyrocket even further. This was followed by the current escalation in the economic downward spiral... (Meril Lynch, Lehman Brothers, AIG) but that's obviously not what I was "predicting".

The Lord will be glorified no matter what happens, so I am not too worried, and I am very relieved not to have said "Thus Saith the Lord" about 9-11-08. I've had glimpses and snippets of visions before, but I'm much more comfortable in learning about the past, and analyzing our present than I am in predicting the future.

That being said, it is possible for us to understand what will likely happen in the future, if we do the hard work of learning the hidden details of history (like the Media-ignored comparisons between Bush's 9-11, and Hitler's Reichstag fire). We can also understand what will likely happen in the future if we pay close attention to current events. Most people don't have the time for that, because their time is spent on their jobs, families, or other priorities of this world. But those people who have studied, because of a hunger to know the truth no matter what cost...people who come to know what's going on, who's behind it, and why it's happening are entrusted with "a message of hope for those who receive it, and a warning to those who will not".

The above quote is a lyric from the Psycho-spiritual-Metal band, "Tool". This band produced an album in the spring of 2001 that eerily predicted the post-9-11 world. Read the lyrics to Laturalus here. It's amazing.

What's more amazing, Alex Grey, who has painted the artwork for their album covers since 2001, actually predicted the post-9-11 world in a painting he made in 1989. The picture below shows two airplanes flying towards the twin towers in the background, and in the foreground, there are three characters: a "terrorist", a dark suit wearing gentlemen who looks suspiciously like George W Bush, and a "Dick" (as in, Dick Cheney). I am publishing this painting because of it's foresight and significance to the greater spiritual picture. I hope that I will not offend anyone by doing so.

This painting shows what I see as a combination of the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It also expresses the two paths ahead of us that I saw in my vision at the church in the week after 9-11. Those who choose the way of light, and life and God have been transforming during the past seven years into a greater awareness, empathy and understanding of the universe. Those who choose the way of darkness, and selfishness, and vengeance have experienced an atrophy of the spirit. The lost are suffering from this. They have no idea what's going on. They do not see the writing on the wall, or the dots connecting themselves. The Biblical analogy of "light" and "darkness" is about comprehension. Spiritual darkness is a plague that effects the lost (who are guided by liars, and agents of the adversary). This plague also affects the wicked themselves.

I believe that because both the lost and the wicked are in darkness, we must not condemn those who are in darkness. "Done" recently remarked on that, warning those gathered here not to get sucked up into the same condemning spirit that has it's grip on most people. He makes a very important point. We must confront and stand up when we're facing a lie, but we must not eternally condemn the liar, because it is God's duty to judge who is a deceiver, and who has simply been deceived.

God will distinguish what to keep and what to throw away, and always has. Even still, Light must penetrate the darkness. The lost will not like light shining in their eyes at first, but it's the only way to get them out. The wicked will fight to destroy the light. None of us has perfect light, but we do all have some of that light within us. It is our sacred duty to share it, in love (patience, kindness, etc). That task is certainly difficult, but in Christ it is possible, and we must be in Christ to share the light. We know the darkness will be done away with, let us continue to proclaim it. To our friends, relatives, neighbors, and strangers. The harvest is plentiful, and ripening even now. This is a wonderful time to be rooted in the Rock of Christ.

John 1:4-5

In Him (Jesus, the Word) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Jesus says in John 15:1-12
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Love is the Key. We know this, but it's good to remember it constantly, and not to be lured away from it for any reason. If we begin to argue with others purely for the thrill of winning, we are not abiding in love. The truth can only be received if it is offered in love. We must act out of love, for God, for brother, for neighbor, for enemy, and for self. We must teach in love, share in love, and most importantly, demonstrate love. Love is the Light that has been given to us, and that we must give out. Praise the Lord!

1 Cor 13:1-3
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. more...

Will America Be Attacked on 9-11-08?

Could America be the victim of another surprise attack on September 11th, 2008? I believe it's not only possible, it's extremely likely. Knowing how risky it is to make such a bold statement, I am willing to stake my claim at Prophecy by saying that yes, it will happen.

I have been pondering and hesitating over the post you are about to read for a very long time. But that is because I haven't heard the deep, separate, and echoey voice of God saying "Yes, America will be attacked by that Wolf who cries Terrorist (George Bush) on 9-11-08". I also don't know what will happen on the day itself.

What I have experienced are ideas, observations, and random thoughts that are more solid than my normal thoughts. These thoughts make me feel as though I know with certainty things that I have no business of knowing. I have always been very skeptical about those thoughts, and ashamed to experience them, because I knew that thoughts like that are a symptom of insanity. But I have come to believe that the prophets of the Old Testament also have those thoughts. And I'm willing to take the gamble and stake my reputation on this prophecy. We'll know for certain next Thursday.

Below is an account of when those "more solid thoughts" about Bush and 9-11-08 struck me:

1. In late November 2000, while the first Bush election was still up for grabs, I was in the car with my cousin Matt, and we were listening to "Antichrist Superstar"...Suddenly, I was compelled to tell him, "If Bush somehow wins this election, and then proves that he has been lying about all of his Christian morals of peace and compassion, and he somehow invades Iraq, you just watch, he'll turn out to be the Antichrist, because God wouldn't stand for it." I didn't take my own advice, and didn't really come to believe that Bush is the Antichrist until December 2004, but that was the first heavy thought.

2. On 9-11-01, when everything was falling apart, and everyone was in some state of shock, I had a certain thought that the Antichrist was behind the attacks, and that there would be another event, but not for another seven years (9-11-08). Sure enough, with Anthrax, and Snipers and School shootings plaguing America in the years between, there has not been a single attack on America that has been linked to Al Qaeda in the seven years since 9-11. I didn't believe that Bush was the Antichrist on that day. Like many, I suspected that it was Osama Bin Laden. But I knew the Antichrist was behind the attacks.

3. A week after 9-11-01, I went to church with my Mom, and instead of the normal Wednesday night Bible study, Trinity Broadcasting Network was holding a nationally televised prayer meeting in the sanctuary. At first, I just sat and listened to the angry, hurt, and vengeful prayers. I hoped that someone in line would set the course straight and pray for forgiveness...but none did. When I realized that none would say that, I got in the line. As I stood there I prayed that I was being rash, that there wasn't a spiritual cancer in the heart of the congregation that forgot forgiveness when it was needed the most. I prayed that someone else, anyone else, would say what was on my heart. None did.

At that time, I saw a very clear vision of America's destiny. I saw two paths ahead of the intersection of 9-11, and I knew that our reaction would determine which path we would go on. I knew for certain that we had to make the right choice, and go on the right path as soon as possible, because God would allow only seven years of this gross misrepresentation of Christ. I knew that if we fed the fear and the hatred in our souls, and if we believed that it was righteous, we would be doomed as a nation. I knew that we would be withered up in seven years time...and here we are. I also saw another pathway ahead of America, the high road. The way of peace, and mercy, and love. The way that normal Americans were when they responded to the victims of 9-11. I knew the greatest obstacle ahead of us was learning how important it is to love our enemies. And I knew that if we couldn't learn that, like the unforgiving servant, we would be judged as guilty by God himself.

4. In late December 2004, when the Tsunami hit, I felt like I was snapped out of a trance by the massive tragedy. It was then that I prayed for God to show me what was really going on in the world; if these were signs of the end; and if the Antichrist really was in power somewhere. I had an incredible hunger to get to the bottom of this "end of days" question, and to seek the truth at any cost. In short, I finally gave weight to some suspicions that I had for years...and my life was forever changed because of it. Two days later, I first saw the "Bush Is Antichrist" website, and a lot of things about the world seemed to come into sharp focus and make more sense.

5. In August 2005, eight months after coming to believe that Bush is the Antichrist, I started doing some real research about the 9-11 attacks. I soon realized that amazingly enough, 9-11 itself was carried out by a shadowy Western elite (and George Bush was in on it...which explains the strange behavior of the Secret Service that morning, along with a whole series of spiritual and moral questions). I later found out that Adolph Hitler created the Nazi dictatorship out of a German democracy based on "false flag" terrorist attacks, and the promise of enhanced security. But more on the serious Hitler/Bush connections in a later post.

6. Leading up to the 2006 elections, The head of the house I am living in was speculating that the Bush administration would stage another false-flag "terrorist attack" before the '06 Congressional elections. He felt that Bush couldn't afford to lose control of Congress to the Democrats that year, and so he would have to attack, or risk impeachment. My view was different. We all had our moments of speculation and analysis. We all wanted to know what would happen. This was the fall of 2006. My speculation felt more like a proclamation, and while it seemed pretty unlikely, I was very sure that it would happen. This is what I said:

"I believe that the Bush administration will wait until they're ready. I don't think they will be impeached unless it's part of the plan, But when they do strike, Karl Rove is going to be in legal trouble, and Bush is going to be going through some sort of Impeachment process. His impeachment will probably still be in debate on the house floor when it happens. Why do that? Because it would create a wave of sentiment for the Bush administration. They will go through the motions of being held accountable to what's left of the law, and then we will be attacked, to break the sovereignty of the law by the urgent need for security. The next major "Terrorist Attack" against America will happen right near the end of his term, because why would Bush waste his official time in office? He has no reason to attack until the clock is almost up, and he has to have some sort of excuse to continue in office, and that excuse will come from chaos. He will at least try to spin declaring Martial Law as a "public service", or a "last resort"...but it's really a massive power grab. I also think he struck a deal with some of the corporate heads who are a part of this Bohemian Grove / Bilderberg conspiracy. Bush promised to keep things peaceful for a set amount of time, so that they could maximize their profits, and maximize the debt of the masses during that time. I believe it's going to happen on September 11th 2008".

And here we are today...The economy is in shambles: we are experiencing a worldwide food and fuel crisis, an above-average abundance of Natural Disasters. In May of this year Asia experienced two extremely devastating natural disasters, Typhoon Nagis, and an earthquake in China. In June the Mississippi River flooded many areas along it's coast in the great floods of '08, and Dennis Kusinich introduced 35 articles for impeachment against George W Bush. In July, Karl Rove was held in Contempt of Congress because he didn't show up to testify in regards to the recent Justice Department scandal. So my improbable "speculation" has been coming true exactly so far.

On August 8th, The morning of the Olympics grand opening, Georgia (believing they were backed by NATO) began bombing the separatist region of South Ossetia (which is largely composed of Russian-speakers, and is part of the pre-communist Russian empire)...Russia fought back with a massive demonstration of military might, and there is talk now about how we are in a New Cold War. On August 18th, Perez Musharraf stepped down as president, leaving Pakistan in a "political vacuum". Things are shaky right now, and they could tip over very easily, but people are still looking away, still hoping for deliverance in the next presidential administration.

If there is a terrorist attack on September 11th, it would cause at least part of the "9-11 truth" movement to hit the streets in hope of starting a revolution. An attack on that day might also cause some gun-loving evangelicals to snap, and go on a crusade to kill liberals and "secular humanists" in the name of the Lord. Seven years is, after all, a very significant time-frame for people who are fascinated with the apocalypse in the mainstream church, and there are plenty of dangerous people who are obsessed with Armageddon, and have been taught for the past seven years that the "War on Terrorism" is righteous. So in some ways, 9-11 is the Achilles heel of America. After the reaction from the masses, Bush would have no choice but to declare Martial law, and use those Halliburton-built concentration camps to "quell domestic dissent".

In the movie, The Devils' Advocate, Al Pacino (the Devil) says, "I'm a surprise, they don't see me coming". Bush's plan is simple, and devious: it is to take over the world. He has the same ambition as Adolph Hitler...but for some reason, most people aren't willing or able to see that about him. He will strike on 9-11, and use the strike as an excuse to gather more power. And most just don't see him coming. But some do, praise God.
