Why Obama needs protection

One would think with all of the admiration Barack Hussein Obama has from the American people (so the state-run media would have you believe) the least thing he would need would be more protection from the people he is reportedly serving. Yet, it was recently reported that he is building a wall around the White House at taxpayer expense to insulate himself from them.

Anti-semitic ancient evil

Anti-Semitic attitudes and policies have been a sad part of Christendom since the Roman church superseded the Roman Empire. Who can forget The Merchant of Venice? Or The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion? (That last will bear mention later.) Or the negligent policies of the former Allied Powers of the First World War, that led to the ugliest part of the Second? But anti-Semitic policy did not start with Christendom. It did not even start with the Roman Empire. Instead, ancient Jewish chroniclers documented episodes of anti-Semitic policy during the Persian Empire.

America at war with God

And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass.

– 2 Chronicles 19:10

We can see in America today that the church is countering their very purpose on this earth. Rather than the light reproving the darkness (Ephesians 5:11), we now have the church spreading the darkness as they attempt to put out the light.

Blessings not realized

Revelation includes blessings, and a curse on this city.

It is widely believed that the Book of Revelation is confusing, not understandable, and divisive. As a result, it is seldom taught from America’s pulpits. It should be noted that prophecies account for nearly one third of the Bible. Therefore, disregarding prophecies yet to be fulfilled is truly a disservice to believers who are admonished to know the entirety of the Bible.

Wanted: prophets for America

Who do men say that I The Son of Man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist (He who pointed his finger at King Herod for all of the evils in which he had done, Luke 3:19); some Elijah (He who confronted the King Ahab and Jezebel, 1 Kings 18:17); and others Jeremiah (He who was sent to warn the Kings, Priests, as well as the people to turn back to God, Jeremiah 1:10) or one of the prophets.

(Matthew 16:19)

Why I shake America awake

The Reichstag Fire. That kind of provocation is coming to America.

The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.

We have found, again, in the center of Ferguson, Missouri, that provocateurs have been sent in to stir up domestic insurrection.

Reason: faith’s greatest enemy

“When valor preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.”

Over the past year I have noticed that the spirit of America has gone from bravery, valor, courage and “these colors do not run” to the best that conservatives have (Fox News) stating that, “They are coming for us.” As if to say that there is nothing 312 million armed-to-the-teeth people can do about a bunch of coward devils with swords in hand.

Islam and Iraq in Prophecy

Since many do not study prophecy and others believe there isn’t any need to since we will all be swept away before the period referred to as “The Tribulation” begins, they do not recognize the prophetic events unfolding before our very eyes. Before proceeding, it is necessary to stress that we can recognize the signs of the times but we cannot accurately predict how end time prophecies will play out or the specific dates of these occurrences.

Muslim flag at White House?

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

Twenty years ago, a comic tract artist warned of a deadly ambition in the Muslim world. Muslims, he said, wanted to fly their green crescent-m00n-and-star flag over the White House. Few people even knew what he said, and even fewer took him seriously. But today Muslims, from a brutal commander of an army without a country to a real head-of-state, now avow that ambition openly. What have secular, and especially leftist or libertarian, politicians to say to that?
