Bible Prophecy Watch: Russia’s Putin warns Israel against selling arms to Ukraine

I saw this on the Drudge report and found it quite interesting….:

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Israel against supplying weapons to the Ukrainian government, which is battling a Russian- backed insurgency in its eastern province.

“This is a choice, a choice of the Israeli leadership; they have the right to do what they consider appropriate. I think it is counterproductive, if it concerns lethal weapons, because it will only lead to yet another swirl of confrontation, to more human casualties, but the result will be the same,” Putin said in an interview on Rossiya 1 TV on Saturday.

His words were reported as well on the English-language news website for Sputnik International.

In Israel, the Prime Minister’s Office and the Defense Ministry had no response to the report.

Israel has been upset by Russia’s decision last week to lift its five-year ban on the sale of the S-300 anti-missile system to Iran and to deliver those weapons by the end of 2015.

It had voluntarily halted the sale of the weapons to Iran in 2010 under pressure from the West and because it was believed that such a ban would help sway Iran to enter negotiations over its nuclear program.

It has been widely believed for many years in the Fundamentalist Christian world, that Russian would move in an act of war against Israel. In fact, it is prophesied about in the Bible:

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel 38:1-23 KJV)

This can be further explained by reading this Gospel tract here. The outcome is foretold here:

Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog. And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward. And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD. — (Ezekiel 39:1-29 KJV)

Here is the words of C.I. Scofield on this subject:

Gog

That the primary reference is to the northern (European) powers, headed up by Russia, all agree. The whole passage should be read in connection with (Zec_12:1-4); (Zec_14:1-9); (Mat_24:14-30); (Rev_14:14-20); (Rev_19:17-21); “gog” is the prince, “Magog,” his land. The reference to Meshech and Tubal (Moscow and Tobolsk) is a clear mark of identification. Russia and the northern powers have been the latest persecutors of dispersed Israel, and it is congruous both with divine justice and with the covenants (for example

(See Scofield) – (Gen_15:18).
(See Scofield) – (Deu_30:3).

that destruction should fall at the climax of the last mad attempt to exterminate the remnant of Israel in Jerusalem. The whole prophecy belongs to the yet future “day of Jehovah”; (Isa_2:10-22); (Rev_19:11-21) and to the battle of Armageddon (Rev_16:14).

(See Scofield) – (Rev_19:19)

but includes also the final revolt of the nations at the close of the kingdom-age. (Rev_20:7-9).  — Source: Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition) by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921)

New Testament:

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. —  (Revelation 20:8-9 KJV)

It is very much believed by many that this battle, which will take place, AFTER the calling away of the saints, not before; will bring on this event here:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:11-21 KJV)

Now, to the unchurched, this is nutty talk. But, it is, in fact, in the Bible. It commonly known as the second advent of Christ. The first coming, is commonly known as “The Blessed Hope” or “The Rapture” which I don’t like as a term; because it is really not found in the Bible.  However, there is going to be a calling away of the saints and it is going to be a world shaking event. The second advent is to come and destroy the armies of the World and set up Christ’s new heaven and new earth; the New Jerusalem, if you will. These are two distinct and different events.

It will be interesting to see just how all of this shapes up. I will be prayerfully watching.

Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church

Beheadings. Crucifixions. Staged mass executions on display for the world to see.

Radical Islamic extremists are targeting and terrorizing Christians and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East and Africa. Attacks are now spilling over into Europe and the West. Religious persecution is expanding dramatically and religious minorities – especially Christians – are now facing horrendous attacks – and all too often – death.

This persecution cannot be ignored. It is critical that we speak out – sound an alarm – be a true voice – a powerful advocate – for the persecuted church.

In Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church, ACLJ Films shares the powerful stories of the persecuted and those fighting for their freedom. This documentary goes behind the scenes to tell the compelling stories of a number of Christians who have been targeted because of their faith. Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini remains captive in Iran. His wife, Naghmeh, and their two young children face extraordinary pain and uncertainty. In Pakistan, Asia Bibi is imprisoned – on death row. And there are other Christians including Meriam Ibrahim and Pastor Youcef Nadarkani who have faced persecution for their faith, as well. ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow and others provide a detailed look at what’s behind this persecution – the rise of ISIS – the Islamic State. The goal of these radical jihadists: to wipe out Christianity. In a dangerous world where there’s growing chaos and conflict, there is still hope. We take a look at what can be done. And we shine a spotlight on the defenders of the faith – the men and women who are putting their own lives at risk to stand-up for the persecuted church.

“Let My People Go” is a powerful look at this battle – a critical fight against religious persecution around the globe. And what can be done – what must be done – to save the persecuted church.

Happy Resurrection Day 2015!

I know that in past years, I went whole hog, quoted scripture and such. But, this year, I am simply going to say; that I am grateful that Christ arose on that third day and now lives at the right hand of the Father. I am also glad that he resides in my heart and that one day, I will see Him! :D

Happy Resurrection Day to you all!

World Wickedness Watch: Judge orders California to pay for inmate’s sex change

This is sickening, but, not really a shock.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. –  A federal judge on Thursday ordered California’s corrections department to provide a transgender inmate with sex change surgery, the first time such an operation has been ordered in the state.

U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco ruled that denying sex reassignment surgery to 51-year-old Michelle-Lael Norsworthy violates her constitutional rights. Her birth name is Jeffrey Bryan Norsworthy.

The ruling marks just the second time nationwide that a judge has issued an injunction directing a state prison system to provide the surgery, said Ilona Turner, legal director at the Transgender Law Center in Oakland, which helped represent Norsworthy.

The previous order in a Massachusetts case was overturned last year and is being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

via Judge orders California to pay for inmate’s sex change | Fox News.

The reason I say that this is not really much of a shock, is because we are truly living in the last days. First, a Christian Pizza maker is persecuted for her beliefs. Then, this here. The Bible speaks of all of it:

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 King James Bible)

You see, this sort of evil has a bit of history with the God the Father:

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis 6:1-8 King James Bible)

The next time God destroys the Earth, there won’t be any Noah. Before he does, this will happen:

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 King James Bible)

Once that happens, the fulfillment of Bible prophecy will begin:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:11-21 King James Bible)

…and this here, will be the ultimate destiny of people referenced in the quoted story above; and Satan who has deceived him and his kind:

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:1-15 King James Bible)

Even so, Come, Lord Jesus.

I don’t know about you all, but…….

If I were this Lady here — I would close my Business, layoff my employees, put that money in the bank and live off the interest for the rest of my life and laugh in the faces of the intolerant a$$holes who caused this woman so many problems.

Just my opinion.

Franklin Graham says Christian persecution is coming and he’s right!

Franklin Graham is absolutely correct, which is one of the rare times, that I actually will agree with an evangelical Christian.

The video:

The Story:

The Rev. Franklin Graham gave an ominous warning to Christians living in the United States Sunday, as he expounded on how religious freedoms are being eroded stateside while believers are being persecuted throughout the world.

Graham also expressed his concerns about the Obama administration’s foreign policy, which has been to rebuke the nation’s allies, such as Israel, while countries known to be hostile to the U.S. are attempting to shape policy by gaining influence in the Democratic party and by giving large donations to entities such as The Clinton Foundation.

“I believe we’re going to see persecution in this country,” Graham said during an interview on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Sunday. “We’ve already seen many laws that have been passed that restrict our freedom as Christians. I believe it’s going to get worse, and we see no question gaining influence in Washington by those that represent the Islamic faith. We do have a problem in this country and we are losing our religious freedom and we’re losing it a little bit day by day.”

via Christian Post: Franklin Graham Warns American Christians ‘Persecution Is Coming’.

Now, he does go on to blame Obama for the immorality in America; which I personally believe is a bit silly. Because I actually happen to know that immorality actually existed during the Bush 43 Clinton, Bush 41, Reagan and all Presidents prior to all of them.

However, I will say one thing; as a Fundamentalist Christian and a Baptist, I happen to know that at some point, before the rapture of the Church, that Fundamentalists like myself will be targeted, as hateful bigots. I believe that Baptist Churches that do not tow the line of “Don’t judge” will find themselves shut down and their pastors jailed. American Baptists, Southern Baptists and any other Baptists that are members of the American Council of Churches will be spared. But, the Independent Baptists will be gone after in a big way.

This is why that Jesus said this:

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. (John 9:1-5 KJV)

That part about “The night cometh, when no man can work.” That is one of the most misunderstood statements that Jesus ever said. He was not just speaking of the night that was about to befall Christ and the Apostles; he was referring to the spiritual darkness that was coming to this world, that would make it almost impossible to do the work of the Lord.

In this case, and in this case alone; Franklin Graham has rightly spoken.

Yeah, right : Katy Parry claims to “gotten a Word from the Lord”

This is too rich:

Before taking the stage at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, singer Katy Perry told TV host Ryan Seacrest that she believes she heard from God just moments before her performance at last week’s Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.

“I was praying and I got a word from God and he says, ‘You got this and I got you,’” Perry said. “And then I was on top of the lion and a guy — a  random guy — looked at me with a headset that I’d never communicated with before. He looked me straight in the eyes and said ‘You got this.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s God confirming I can do this!’”

The singer, who inexplicably donned devil horns at moments during the Grammys, also described the process of preparing for the coveted Super Bowl performance, noting that she practiced the act at least 40 times before officially taking to the stage during the half-time show

via Singer Katy Perry Was Praying Just Moments Before Her Super Bowl Performance When She Claims She ‘Got a Word From God’ | Video | TheBlaze.com.

As an Independent Fundamental Baptist; I tend to think that the only thing that the Lord would like to say to Katy Perry is, “Please Stop!” and “Accept my Son’s love gift and truly serve me!”

Just my opinion.

 

Sadie Robertson loses to a no-talent black man on Dancing with the Stars

So, Sadie loses because she is a moral Christian white girl and they give it to a no talent jackass, who’s biggest accomplishment was being the fresh prince’s rich sidekick? Nice, real nice. The thugs in Ferguson won this one. …and they wonder why I loathe black people? I’m just saying. :mad:

The video:

Sadie was, as always, unlike the black thugs in Ferguson, a class act. Sadie Robertson will one day go on to be something great and will be an awesome wife and mother to a very lucky man. As for the free prince sidekick; he will be what he is now, a has-been actor that was really only known for one good show. Lord knows, he has milked that little gravy train for all it is worth.

Update: Also too: Before anyone says it, I know good and well what I wrote here. This guy was an elected official. I’m not, I am a writer, there’s a difference. Besides all that considering what happened to my cousin in 1994; blacks should be glad I am not out murdering them at random, if it were not for Jesus, I would be. :mad:

What’s going on up in Flathead County, Montana?

Quite a bit, it seems.

Chuck Baldwin Explains:

The foundation of a free republic is equal justice under the law. Take away that fundamental tenet and liberty itself will quickly collapse. Democrat or Republican; liberal or conservative; male or female; Caucasian, Negro, Hispanic, Indian, or Asian; rich or poor; powerful or ordinary; Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, or atheist: they all mean absolutely NOTHING in a court of law. Lady Justice is rightly symbolized with a blindfold over her eyes. In a court of law, there is absolutely no place for racial prejudice, religious prejudice, political prejudice, or personal prejudice. The only thing that matters in a court of law is equal justice under the law. Nothing else matters! NOTHING!

Every judicial race in this country that I’ve ever heard of is a non-partisan race. Candidates for judge run without party affiliation. The obvious reason for this fact is because judges are entrusted to adjudicate the law without political bias or favor. That’s the way it’s SUPPOSED to be, anyway.

However, it has become obvious that too many times our courtrooms exude political prejudice and abject cronyism. It is no hyperbole to say that there are tens of thousands (maybe hundreds of thousands) of men and women in America’s penal institutions who are nothing more than political prisoners. The kangaroo courts of Mao, Stalin, and Hitler have nothing on many of the courts in the United States of America today.

Tim was defending a client who was facing two drug-related charges. I instilled in my children a strong sense of justice and fairness under the law, and that is exactly how Tim approaches his criminal defense cases. He immediately began to defend his client, as is the responsibility of every defense attorney.

What happened next can only be attributed to an Act of God. It is one thing to instinctively feel that the prosecutor’s office and police assigned to the case are acting in a prejudicial manner; it is another thing entirely to have the facts of that hunch fall into your lap. And that’s exactly what happened in this case.

Tim Baldwin picks it up here:

Montana defense attorneys, Tim Baldwin and Phyllis and Jack Quatman, of the Quatman and Quatman, PC law firm in Flathead County, have revealed serious unethical actions of prosecutors and Northwest Drug Task Force Agent in Flathead County, Montana and their attempt to cover it up. The seriousness of their actions caused these defense attorneys to request an investigation to the Montana Attorney General. After reviewing their request for an investigation, the Attorney General’s Office responded and stated that while they will not prosecute Corrigan and Park criminally, they are very concerned about the allegations of ethical violations and referred the matter to the proper authority in Montana.

Rod Dreher says something that I have been thinking for a long while

No bigger truth has been spoken on a blog:

When someone like Ted Cruz, son of a fundamentalist Christian pastor, has the unspeakable arrogance to go into this group of Orthodox, Catholic, and Coptic Christians who are facing the martyrdom of their entire communities and expect them to recite the gospel of American neoconservatism — that is, not simply to denounce anti-Semitism, which the people in that audience were willing to do, but to affirm the goodness of the state of Israel,  even if doing so would put their own lives in danger once they return home – he forces the rest of us Christians to make a choice. Which is more important to them: the fate of Israel, or the fate of the Church?

Again, I support the right of the state of Israel to exist, and the right of the ancient Christian churches of the Middle East to exist. But if circumstances force us to make a choice, Christians must ordinarily choose the Church, just as I would expect Jewish Americans in most circumstances to choose Israel, and would not for a second hold that against them. If you will not be for your own people, what kind of person are you?

That choice implies a second choice: which is more important to conservative American Christians, their Christianity, or their conservatism?

If that is the choice, I know which side I am on. And if that makes me anathema to American movement conservatism, I’ll wear that badge with honor.

The Bible says clearly:

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15 KJV)

We as Christians need to figure out, do we wish to make alliances with those who deny Christ or with those who chose to serve Christ? I think the choice is obvious here.

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32-33 KJV)

Furthermore, Paul gave instruction to the early Church on this subject:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV)

So, this whole idiotic idea of Christian Zionism is in total violation of the principles of the Word of God. Why would we, as followers of Christ; make alliances with those who reject the Gospel of Christ and were the ones basically responsible for the rigged trial and execution of our Lord? It simply does not make sense at all. Then again, neither does the neoconservative line of fighting for Israel to the death, at the cost of our own Country and treasure of our youth either.

 

Sickening: Upstate NY farmers targeted for not hosting Lesbian wedding

This one comes via Selwyn Duke and is reported at The New American:

It gives new meaning to the term “shotgun wedding”: Government officials in New York have told an upstate farming couple that they must host same-sex “weddings” on their property — and because they refused to do so they must pay a $13,000 fine.

The hapless farmers are Robert and Cynthia Gifford, who have owned Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke, New York, for more than a quarter century. During much of that time at least, writes The Daily Signal’s Leslie Ford, they have opened “the farm to the public for events like berry picking, fall festivals, and pig racing” — and, sometimes, for weddings. This was never a problem until 2012, when, reports Ford, “Melissa Erwin and Jennie McCarthy contacted the Giffords [by telephone] to rent the family’s barn for their same-sex wedding ceremony and reception. Cynthia Gifford responded that she and her husband would have to decline their request as they felt they could not in good conscience host a same-sex wedding ceremony at their home.”

Unbeknownst to the Giffords at the time, however, the phone call was being recorded.

What happened next was that Erwin and McCarthy filed a discrimination complaint with the government. On what basis? Ford explains, “New York’s Human Right’s [sic] law (Executive Law, art. 15) creates special privileges based on sexual orientation that trump the rights of business owners. Because the Giffords’ family farm is open to the public for business, New York classifies it as a ‘public accommodation’ and then mandates that it not ‘discriminate’ on the basis of sexual orientation.”

The Giffords were then found in violation of the law and were “ordered by DHR [Division of Human Rights] Judge Migdalia Pares and Commissioner Helen Diane Foster to pay $10,000 in fines to the state and an additional $3,000 in damages to the lesbian couple … for ‘mental pain and suffering.’ Additionally, the Giffords must provide sensitivity training to their staff, and prominently display a poster highlighting state anti-discrimination laws,” reports Lifesite’s Kirsten Andersen.

This issue strikes especially close to the Giffords’ heart because “marriage ceremonies on the farm typically take place in and around the couple’s home, where they live full-time and are raising their two children,” writes Andersen. “They consider the farm their home,” said the Giffords lawyer, Jim Trainor. “They live there, they work there, they raise their kids there.” In fact, not only is the couple intimately involved in planning weddings they host — providing catering, floral arrangements, and everything else save a wedding official — but they even allow part of their living quarters to be used as a bridal suite.

None of this mattered to the NYS DHR, however. This prompts Ford to ask, “Should the government be able to coerce a family farm into hosting a same-sex wedding?” She then answers, “In a free society, the answer is no” and explains, “Government shouldn’t be able to fine citizens for acting in the market according to their own — rather than the government’s — values, unless there is a compelling government interest being pursued in the least restrictive way possible.” As many critics would point out, however, there’s the rub. What constitutes a “compelling government interest”? And should the state have the power to use private property for its own interests in the first place?

We live in a sick and sad, sin-depraved society that long ago rejected the Christian values that this nation was founded upon; this story proves that little notion. Christians talk of revival; what bunk! —  that ship sailed long ago. Judgement is coming, but, there is hope.

The Assemblies of God celebrates 100 years of apostate Christian doctrine

I know all about this denomination, I was involved with an Assembly of God Church for 10 years; and went to several in my days as a pentecostal. I am happy to report that in 2004, after about a year of careful and prayerful study; I parted ways with these sort of Churches for good.

This is not to say that there are not any good people and very sincere people in that denomination; there are many of them. Unfortunately, the doctrinal errors negate that, in my opinion. I will also fully admit; that there was a good deal of emotional abuse that took place, at least in the Church that I attended. I saw a good deal of it given out, by the youth Pastor, who was there when I went to the Church I attended for 10 years.

The story via The Christian Post (WARNING: Turn on your Ad blocker!): Thousands Expected at Assemblies of God 100th Anniversary Celebration; Estimated 10.5 Million to View AG’s Centennial Live This Sunday.

Thousands of attendees are expected to attend the Assemblies of God 100th anniversary celebration in Springfield, Missouri, this week, including several international dignitaries. AG is one of the world’s fastest-growing Protestant movements and the largest Pentecostal denomination.

“It’s a great celebration of our church which is bringing in delegates from all over the world and all across America,” says Dr. George Wood, the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, as reported by Ozarks First. “There is a strong focus on evangelism – sharing the good word of Jesus Christ with those who don’t know him.”

In addition to AG General Superintendent Dr. George O. Wood, keynote addresses will be delivered by an array of international speakers, such as Yong Mok Cho of South Korea, Juan Carlos Escobar of Spain, Edward A. Grabovenko of Russia, Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi, Barnabas Mtokambali of Tanzania, Ivan Satyavrata of India, José Wellington of Brazil and Max Schläpfer of Switzerland. Other U.S. speakers include Hal Donaldson, John Lindell, Wilfredo “Choco” De Jesús, Nam Soo Kim, Jason Frenn (who ministers in Latin America), and Raegan Glugosh, a U.S. missionary to Romania.

Dignitaries in attendance include President John Dramani Mahama of Ghana, who will be recognized as a special guest the evening of Aug. 7, the opening day of the event. Mahama is a widely published author who is proficient in eight languages.

I will not even get into the fact that the Church that I attended, at one time; had a sexual predator in it. Thankfully, he had moved on the greener pastures, by the time I arrived at that Church.

PORTLAND Oregon Child Evangelism Fellowship under fire for preaching basic fundamental Christian truths

I saw this earlier and I was not going to blog about it. However, I felt lead to write something about it.

The Story via The Christian News Network:

PORTLAND, Ore. — A chapter of a nationally-recognized Christian group that seeks to reach children with the gospel of Jesus Christ is under fire for teaching kids the biblical doctrine of sin and eternal judgment, in addition to sharing about the love and mercy of God.

The Portland chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is facing resistance from some area residents as they conduct voluntary summer camps in the area and plan on hosting after-school Bible studies in local public schools. The problem? CEF teaches children that each person is a sinner in need of the Savior.

Those who oppose the group assert that because of this, CEF does not present “Jesus loves you” mainstream Christianity, and claim that the organization is “hardcore evangelical fundamental.”

They pretend to be a mainstream Christian Bible study when in fact they’re a very old school fundamentalist sect,” resident Kaye Schmitt told local television station KATU.

[….]

Robert Aughenbaugh also told reporters this week that preaching to children about sin might give them feelings of fear and shame.

Aughenbaugh, Schmitt and others have organized a group called Protect Portland Children, which seeks to speak out against CEF’s message and influence parents not to allow their children to attend its events. It has set up a Facebook page that has so far generated over 800 likes. It’s profile photograph is of a child holding a sign that reads “I am not a sinner.”

[….]

[The] curriculum teaches young children that they’re born sinners, bound for eternity in hell unless they obey the club’s teachings,” the group asserts.

“Before the Portland public schools allow ‘The Good News Club’ to use school facilities or to promote their activities on campus it would seem appropriate to allow mental health professionals to further investigate the activities of this group,” wrote Chuck Currie of the United Church of Christ in a recent blog post about the matter.

[…]

But CEF says that it is not teaching anything outside of the basic and fundamental truths of the gospel—and that mankind must understand the bad news to know why the good news is so good.

“Listen, the message of the gospel the teaching of the core Christian tenets of the Christian faith that have been taught for 2,000 years in the Bible is what we’re teaching,” CEF Vice President of Ministries Moises Esteves told local television station KOIN. “There’s nothing new here.”

The group has partnered with over 30 area churches to present its evangelical outreach to youth in Portland.

“We do teach about sin,” Esteves stated, “[But] we’re not nasty. We’re not high pressure. We’re not negative, but we teach what the Bible teaches that every human being is a sinner in need of a savior.”

Reporters observed the group in action on Wednesday, singing John 3:16 with the children in attendance, which reads, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

My friends, we are, in fact, living in the last days. Israel is at war, our Nation is being overran; war is imminent with Russia, the economy is teetering on disaster — Now there is this; Christ’s servants are being persecuted for sharing the timeless gospel to children.

Have your things in order, as the Lord cometh shortly.

A perfect example of why White Nationalism and Traditional American Conservatism cannot co-exist

Before I get into this, there is one thing that you must know about me; and that is that I read many different opinions and trains of thought. Not so much on the left anymore. About the only thing that I can stand to read on the left anymore are NPR’s all things considered, Jim Hightower, Juan Williams, and Democracy Now! — mainly just to see what the left is whining about at any given moment.

Now as for the right; I do read a good deal. I read quite a bit of Conservative opinion; most of it is mainstream stuff, I do also read much of the alternative right’s writings as well. I also read stuff that would send most mainstream conservatives scurrying for the exits. Why? Because I like to know what makes people tick; I like to know what these people think and why they think them. It is called being observant. It is also a good trait of being a good writer. This does not mean that I actually agree with everything that they say, I just want to know what makes them feel the way that they do.

Which is why, when I came across this article by The Occidental Observer, itself a white nationalist online publication; I found it to be keenly interesting and to be a perfect example as to why there is a distinct difference between American Nationalism; of which I happen to be a supporter of and white nationalism — which is basically an avocation of freedom for people of white skin and fascism towards those without white skin — which basically is what white nationalism stands for. Not to mention an irrational hatred and scapegoating of Jews. Now, it is one thing to have an issue with leftist Jews; who are having a negative impact with their cultural Marxism of its many incarnations. However, a general irrational view of Jews in general strikes this writer as moronic at best.

Now my quoting of this article is going to be lengthy. First, let me open the scene a bit here; this writer is talking about the worst dead conservative writers. The writer of this piece mentions William F. Buckley. Now I happen to agree with his assessment of Buckley. Buckley was an establishment figure; something that the John Birch Society has made quite known long ago. Buckley even read the book and said that it was very well done —- much to the surprise of the John Birch Society. The establishment status of The National Review magazine continues today. Which is no big surprise.

Anyhow, this article at The Occidental Observer, takes broad swipe at Robert Welch, the founder of the John Birch Society, itself named after a Baptist Missionary who was killed by communist gorillas in China. The following quote is from the The Occidental Observer:

Welch — surrounded by Jews and financed by them — worked a different market: people who were more gutsy and less constrained by published opinion.

The idea that Buckley as an agent of the System’s political police was going to “stop history in its tracks and tell it to turn around” (to use his self-description of National Review) is something only the hopelessly naive could entertain.

Re Mr. Welch, young people are probably too dismissive of the John Birch Society. JBS gobbled up and wasted probably well over 100 million dollars. In its heyday it was not what it later became — a collection of marginalized people of little influence.

Chief Justice Rehnquist was a John Birch Society member back in the early 60s. That this little factoid didn’t become an issue in his confirmation hearings or in the media tells you that the System had a soft spot in its heart for him. And wisely so. In one of his opinions as an aside he went out of his way to say that he thought Beauharhais vs. Illinois was good law. This was a Supreme Court decision in 1952 that upheld a Canada-style law in Illinois making it a crime to say something that exposed an ethnic group or race up public contempt. Beauharnais (that may not be the exact name) was convicted and jailed for publishing statistics on the differential venereal disease rates between Whites and Blacks.

Several hundred thousand people were put through the Birch scam. They signed up. They were indoctrinated by the Society primarily to believe that race didn’t matter, that nationality didn’t matter (Welch used the term “Americanist” in lieu of “American” in his most repeated mantra that appeared on the covers or in the prefaces of the Society’s books — “American” wasn’t universalist enough for Welch), that anti-Semitism and “racism” were the hallmarks of Communist agents .

The Birch initiates were shorn of significant amounts of money. They were fed a world view in which all our problems emanated from a small group of consciously evil conspirators meeting in a basement in Ingolstadt or Frankfurt. All problems would have been nipped in the bud if someone had just called the police and raided Weisshaupt’s cellar or the Frankfurt School. Completely bamboozled on race and Jews. Totally emasculated.

The standard fare of “exposing” the bad guys and their myriad successful evil doings eventually demoralized the Birch member. He became depressed. Gave up. Dropped out. But the innoculation against “racism” and “anti-semitism” took. No danger from such people. In fact, to the extent they remained politically active at all, they became active supporters of Israel and opponents of any effort to express White interests.

This was not accidental. A friend of mine who ran the American Opinion Bookstore in Atlanta secretly taped a planning meeting of JBS at which Nelson Sevier, the State Coordinator newly back from being trained in its headquarters in Belmont, Massachusetts, spoke. In it Sevier explained to the top 4 or 5 “Section Leaders” in Georgia that the primary purpose of Birch Society was to fight racism and anti-Semitism.

This was so because fighting racism and anti-Semitism was the most effective way to go after the Communist conspiracy, the primary purpose of which was to stir up White racism and anti-Semitism.

Sevier explained that Mr. Welch shrewdly put out just enough bait to lure White racists and anti-Semites out so that their influence could be negated once they exposed themselves.

The total impact of the Birch business is staggering when one thinks of how for decades people who were dissatisfied and suspicious were nipped in the bud, misled, and milked of money. Hundred of thousands of people. More than 100 million dollars…and dollars that were the equivalent of several dollars today.
This also took place at a critical juncture, when the race mixing shoe was really pinching the foot.

[…]

I attended a big banquet in Atlanta JBS held in honor of Welch. (I was a guest. I never joined JBS.) A woman got up before Welch’s speech who was an amateur singer. She asked everyone to stand for “Mr. Welch’s favorite song.” (He insisted on being called “Mr. Welch” even by people who had known him for decades. Referring to him as “Mr. Welch” was a kind ritual among Birchers.)

I was curious to know what Mr. Welch’s favorite song was. It was a stunner. She belted forth into “The Battle Hymn of the Republic!”

Welch grew up as a small town Southerner in North Carolina four generations ago when the smoke blackened ruins were everywhere. Southerners of his generation detested the song with its gloating references to trompling us out and reading us scripture out of the blazing barrels of guns.

That Welch as a small town Southerner would pick that “filthy abolitionist hymn” as my Father and Grandmother called it betokens a very strange psychology.

This my friends is a perfect example as to why White Nationalism and its godless counterpart Neo-Nazism cannot co-exist with traditional conservatism. For its part, The John Society was and still is, an anti-communist organization. Furthermore, The JBS is an anti-fascist organization as well as an anti-imperialist organization. The JBS simply believes in the Constitution of the United States of America and defends the values that it was simply created upon.

At this point, allow me to point out something:  I am NOT a member of the John Birch Society at all; I never have been. I simply happen to agree with the values of the said organization.  I, at some point, may join the JBS. However, at this time, my personal financial situation does not allow me to do so.

I will, however, defend this most excellent organization from moronic attacks like this from people who want freedom for people of white skin and see those who are of a different ethnic backgrounds and skin color put into chains. This is an immoral thing and those who do it, should not be allowed to get away with it; no matter what their political or personal agenda or worldview might be. This is called having a backbone and I was born with one and I will use this blog to use that backbone, as I see fit.

 

Michael Brown says about Christians who support gays what I have known for years.

My the Lord bless this man for telling the truth and standing for what is right.

A snippet via Christian Post:  Why Gay-Affirming Christians Cannot Truly Affirm the Full Inspiration of Scripture.

For the last few decades, there have been gay-affirming Christians who reject the full authority of the Bible and who have no problem saying that Moses or Paul were wrong on certain subjects. But it is only in the last few years that there has been a rise in gay-affirming Christians who claim to be orthodox believers in the full inspiration of the Scriptures.

The simple fact is that is impossible to fully affirm the divine inspiration of the Scriptures, which includes a full affirmation of the deity of Jesus, while at the same time claiming that God approves of committed homosexual relationships.

This was the general view of Christians, before the cultural marxists began infiltrating the Churches in the 1960’s. It is quite refreshing to see that someone still believes the Bible as it was intended to be read. May the Lord bless him, greatly.
