Where is this world headed?

We live in a world where most people don't know the person that lives two houses away from their home.  We live in a world filled with deception and deceit.  

The philosophy of our New Age orientated society is one of tolerance.  What that really means is that we should tolerate anything that the New Liberal Society says and that we should tolerate anything that they want to do.  They have no tolerance at all for anyone who objects to their policies and are highly offended to think that anyone could criticize anything that they support.

Our people are deceived and brainwashed with the barrage of media propaganda, 24 hours a day, every day.

Look how we are divided today!  The words listed below show some of the divisions and even the words that we use today have been twisted to mean something different than the word originally meant.

Liberal, Moderate, Conservative, Left Wing, Right Wing, Ultra Right Wing, Ultra Left Wing, Mainstream, Middle of the Road.

Even the words don't mean anything anymore because most Republicans who claim to be conservative would have been Ultra Left Wing Liberals just 20 years ago.

Christ's first warning to His people concerning the signs of the end time was a warning to not be deceived.

Luke 21:7-8 7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. KJV

Why is it that families that are rooted deep in the gospel, cannot talk about Politics, Religion or anything else that is really important anymore!  Instead we talk about the weather, our kids and complain about the world that we live in but don't dare to take any action to fix the worlds problems.

Our society is told today that Russia is not longer a threat to us and that we should accept them as our equals and as our friends.  Notice what happened with the hostage situation in Russia, just last week.  There were 750 innocent people taken hostage by enemies of the Russian government, who are fighting for liberty of their homeland.  The Russian troops surrounded the area and eventually used gas to take control of the situation.  Only trouble was that along with killing about 50 of the enemy fighters, the Russians also killed about 117 innocent civilians.  In addition to that, there were some 450 others hospitalized with many in serious condition due to the gas the Russian troops used.  For many days following the incident, the Russian government refused to even tell the doctors what kind of gas was used.  The doctors needed to know what kind of gas was used so that they could treat the 450 patients.  After several days and more deaths, the Russian government finally told the doctors what kind of gas was used.  Sounds just like the Cold War Russia, to me.  They have always been and always will be more interested in promoting their political philosophies than is serving the people they rule over.  We should never trust the Russian government when we strive for world peace.  They will never be our friends or allies!

Have the Russians supported us in our fight against terrorism?  No!  Have they or will they support us in our war against Saddam in Iraq?  No!

Our political situation is so corrupt and twisted that it is almost useless to even participate or Vote!

How about Religion?

Our religious societies and churches have changed so much in the last 50 years that most people wouldn't even recognize the churches or organizations today.  Our main stream religious beliefs have reversed almost 100 degrees in direction in the last 50 years.

Here is a list of some of the phony doctrines that Satan has preached into the ears and hearts of our Christian society.

Rapture!

Neither the word or the doctrine is in the Bible.  Saints won't be taken out of the tribulation.  It's the wicked that are taken out first.  Read Matt 13 th Chapter.

Saints will be taken from this world to Heaven!

Christ is returning to Earth to set up His kingdom here on the Earth.  If we are faithful, we will rise to meet Him in the clouds and return to Earth and serve Him in His kingdom.

Once Saved Always Saved!

Salvation is never determined until this time on earth is completed.  Man always has his freedom of choice to choose to serve God or Satan.  No one individual can take salvation away from another but we can choose to allow whichever spirit we want to possess our bodies and control our lives.

God the Father and God the Son being two different people.

Ten Commands and Old Testament have taught from cover to cover that there is only One God.  Jesus Christ appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the other prophets of the Old Testament.  God came down to earth and offered himself as a sacrifice for our sins.  The beauty of the crucifixion was that Jesus Christ could have called a halt to the whole thing at any time while hanging there on the cross, but He loved mankind so much that He suffered rejection and desertion by every friend and follower on this earth and then gave Himself willing on Calvary!  Phillip even asked Christ to show them the Father and Christ said that he that hath seen me (Christ) had seen the Father.

All Christians will be taken to Heaven when they die.

Why is it that every time someone dies in this world we hear about that person going to a better place?  The Bible teaches that the way that leads to destruction is broad and many go in thereat.  While the path that leads to eternal life is straight and narrow and few find that path.  The scriptures teach that 80 to 90 percent of all peoples will eventually end up in Hell, while only 10 to 20 percent will find eternal life.  That is why we should have such concern for the souls of every human being because most of them are going to be lost.

All Good people go to Heaven.

The Bible teaches that only those people who have been born again and live changed lives will obtain eternal life. Just being a good neighbor or good parents is not enough to qualify you for a ticket into life eternal.  Salvation is a free gift of God to those who claim it and allow God's spirit to live and dwell within them.  Christ said that except you are born of the water and of the spirit you cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven.

Christ came to bring peace and love to earth.

Christ says He came to bring division.  The reason God wants division is because He wants us each to make our own choices in life.  I think it would only be justice if God would give us the life that we have chosen to live in this world.  How would you like to have to live the last day, or week, month or year over and over and over again for eternity.  Here are Christ's own words and I'll let them speak for themselves.

Luke 12:42-53

42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled?

50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. KJV

I think those words of Christ pretty well describe our world today.

In our world today, how many real friends do we each have?  I don't have any!  I have lots of acquaintances and people who are concerned for me but I don't have even one person that is the kind of friend that will listen, council and support me on a personal level.

I think this is true of most of the people in our society today.  We are so busy being entertained and instructed that we don't have time to sit and talk with friends.  We're just to busy.

Scripture talks about the people in the last days being in bondage with silken cords.  It's like a spider web.  In other words the cords are so soft that the person doesn't even realize that they are in bondage.  Any individual cord can be broken easily but if we are bound with many of the cords, we find ourselves bound and unable to free ourselves.  Our way of life has most of our people in bondage to modern life and most are unwilling to break out of those bonds because we like our life style.

Life isn't worth living in the USA!

Personally I have come to the conclusion that recovery of our constitutional freedoms is almost impossible with our current form of government.  Although I have no plans for the overthrow of our government and I am not part of a revolutionary party, I support the overthrow of our current form of government.  It has become evil, biased and it stands and supports almost everything that the Bible teaches as being wrong.  I am not proud to be an American and I have no desire to maintain my citizenship as an American Citizen.

I'm ashamed of our government and discussed with the evil "liberal" societies and organizations in this country.

Our News media, our colleges and almost all social organizations are led by stupid, ignorant selfish liberals.  But more than anything else I am appalled by what we accepted as our modern Christian religious society today.  They don't teach God's truth and continue to support an evil government which is systematically stripping our citizens of all their rights and privileges as guaranteed by the constitution.

We have no business putting troops into Iraq.  They are far from the most dangerous governments in our world today. Secondly if we really wanted to remove Saddam, it could be done within minutes and without troops.

We should learn how to dictate policy instead of trying to enforce policy.  Suppose we were to give Saddam 48 hours to surrender or we would level Bagdad.  The people would have time to leave the city and loss of life would be low.  We wouldn't even have to use atomic weapons.  If he still refuses after Bagdad is destroyed, then pick the next largest city and again give them 48 hours to surrender or have the city destroyed.  

I didn't take Japan long to learn this lesson back in WW II.  American troops are dying almost daily all around the world and we aren't even at war.  Our government seems to have little regard for the lives of our military boys.

Maybe Christ will call a halt to the evils of this world before it gets much worse, but I doubt it.  I believe Christ is going to let us have all the rope we want and that we will destroy ourselves because of deception and greed.

May God have mercy on the people of this country!

Sometimes I wonder if life is worth living today!

We live in a world that has lost control of reality!  Nothing you hear on TV or even in most Sermons seems to be relevant to the happenings of today.

There is no such thing as news on TV or Radio.  Every broadcast is an editorial about how the reporter thinks the world should be.  They are promoting their own personal private agendas.  We accept boisterous, loud mouthed and even obnoxious people to continue to be leaders in the communications industries, in politics, in our states and in our communities.

We see and read about bombings almost every day in Israel!  Do we know who the enemy is?  Has our government taken a stand against the PLO and Hamas like it did against Al Quada?  Why?  If you want to know what the Islamic community really thinks, just go to this web site!  http://www.khamenei.de/

Any person who claims to belong to the PLO or to Hamas should be treated just as we do Al Quada members!  I would bet that our government still allows and supports Hamas having offices in Washington DC or in the US.

We recently had an incident in Florida where a man of Islam who had been a teacher at one of the colleges there for 27 years, made a video where he expressed hate for America!  First, if he has been in this country for 27 years and has not become an American citizen, then I would have to ask why?  Secondly, do we want people who oppose our government and way of life teaching our young people?  My answer is a resounding NO!!!  Why do our opponents always want to take advantage of our form of government and the freedoms that go with it, while tearing down the very thing that is giving them the freedom to speak!  Would any Arab country allow a US citizen to teach in their universities and denounce the local government?  No, they would not and they would never allow a Christian to express their religious beliefs or political views, in their country.  In fact, speaking out would probably result in prison time, expulsion and death.  Arab countries don't allow freedom of speech and prohibit and mention of the Gospel of Christians.

Will the American people ever wake up and realize who the enemy is!

A Sick World is on it's death bed!

We all seek for peace in the world, but we need to remember that the Bible promises that when they cry peace and safety, then will come sudden destruction.

Our people are misguided and our religious leaders have been taught the philosophy of tolerance.  We will soon have a world where you will not be able to travel without a special identity card.  That card will probably have a computer chip that will contain DNA data, fingerprints, photos and a multitude of personal information data.

It is just a matter time until all our drivers licenses will contain our fingerprints and who knows what else or what is to come!

We will soon have all prisoners who have been convicted of a felony crime required to accept a chip under their skin that will allow our government and police force to track them wherever they go with GPS.

We will soon have all babies injected with a chip under their skin that will allow our government and police force to track them wherever they go with GPS so that if the child runs away or is kidnapped, or commits a crime, we will be able to locate them immediately.

We will soon do away with all cash and all purchases or payments will be made over the computer or through a bank type teller.  They will eliminate the cash from our society in an effort to control the purchase and sale of drugs, but eventually all these new laws will be used against true Christians who refuse to follow the New Age, New One World Government.

They are establishing legal policies that prevent those called terrorists from having constitutional rights.  When the true Christians oppose the New Order, we will be classified as terrorists.

These are just the final steps in preparing for the mark of the beast.  They will use logical reasonable ideas to start the process.  It will be slow at first and will not effect everyone to start with.

Christians need to be aware that these changes are coming and very soon.  It's hard to decide who or what political position to support because they are all headed in the same direction.

We cannot continue to classify our modern Christian world as being "Good People" just because they believe in the Bible.  Many claimed to follow God in Christ's day but their hearts were not true to God and they were lead of men and not of God.

"Good People" don't make it to Heaven.  Only those who really and truly allow God to dwell in their heart and to direct their lives will be His when He returns to setup his kingdom here on earth.

Christ is returning here to earth to set up His kingdom and those who are faithful will dwell and reign with Him.  There will be no rapture!  We will not be taken out of the trouble but God will protect us within the turmoil.

Psalms 91:1-11

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. KJV

A world of lies and deception!

Each day our world becomes more deceiving!  What is truth?

Many TV shows now operate programs that require contestants to vote off other contestants!  How soon before they vote to remove us from their society.

We are being conditioned to accept the idea of deciding who stays and who goes!

Will the next step be to decide which senior citizen are useful and which are not?

Will we also decide which children are acceptable for our new society?

Will we soon be taught that we should give up our individual rights to benefit society?

There seems to be no truth anymore?  What news stories do you believe?


Editorial 01-21-02!


Our world continues to go round and round!


Enron Corporation!

I am shocked and surprised by the actions of our government!  Should our government have stepped in and bailed out Enron?  The answer is a great big resounding NO!  Yet the actions of our government never ceases to amaze me.  We bailed out New York City, the Railroads, Chrysler, several banks, and now New York City again but not Enron.  Why?

I wonder if it was just because they thought that they might be able to blame the Republicans for not acting or was it for acting to much, for some special big business interests!  In reality they don't really care about all the people who lost their retirement moneys.  They would just as soon take all of our retirement money and put it under government control anyway.

Enron is down the tubes.  Who will be next?


Mistreatment of Afghan prisoners!

Does it surprise you that the liberal press is now saying that we are being to rough on our prisoners in Guantanimo Bay, Cuba?  First we didn't get into the war fast enough and then we didn't stop it quick enough.  Yet as much as I hate to agree with anything that the liberal press promotes, I have to agree that we are mistreating these prisoners.

The prisoners who were the top leaders of the Taliban and Al-Qaida should be given a short trial and then executed!  We sure don't want to put them in prison and take care of them for 40 years.  Other ranking officers who co-operated with the US military and supplied us with the requested information about the other Taliban and Al-Qaida leaders should be tried, sentenced to 5 years in prison and then released.  Others should just be questioned and released.

We need to look at what is really happening.  We have seen prisoners who were chained and had their heads covered and their heads shaved, being lead around their compounds like children.  Was it really necessary to shave their heads and force them to violate a sacred religious belief?  Seems to me like they are just trying to punish them and physically and emotionally break their spirit.  There were also some of the prisoners who had to be sedated in order to handle them.  Why?  Why is it that we can only secure 25 prisoners at a time for transport to Cuba.  Would we have expected prisoners to be handled that way in America?  NO!  Would we have accepted that kind of treatment of our own troops if they were captured by the enemy?  No!   Yet many in our prisons today, first shouldn't be there and second are not treated fairly or with any kind of respect for their humanity.

Is torture and even killing of prisoners in time of war acceptable?  Of course it is.  If you capture an enemy soldier, who has information that you need to prevent hundreds of your own troops from being killed, are you not going to get that information in any way that you can.  War is hell!  If you are going to fight a war, you have to fight to win and there are no rules.  We saw it in Viet Nam when captured soldiers were pushed from the door of airplanes and you can bet that the remaining prisoners were willing to talk about anything and everything.  Why is it that we always seem to thing that morals and integrity are more important than winning the war.  Once we get involved in a war, all the rules should go right out the window.

What concerns me most is that our government and even our people are changing all the rules and many are willing to kill these prisoners without even giving them a trial!  Do we really want to support a government who detains, conducts secret trials and executes those who it considers to be enemies of the government.  You and I might find ourselves on the other side someday as we fight against a corrupt and evil government.

It's beginning to look like one of the main goals of our government in it's war against terrorism is to disarm any and all peoples who have the courage and strength to stand up and object to a government run by evil men.


John Walker!

Again we seem to be bending the rules.  First we have to recognize that John Walker left this country and denounced his American citizenship.  It's true that he may not have filled out the proper papers when he left this country, but his actions and the places that he chose to live are all very obvious indications of Mr. Walkers beliefs and his intentions.  Unless we can actually prove war crimes against him, he should be released and sent back to Afghanistan immediately.


China!

Have you listened to the news (what little there is of it) about the Christians imprisoned in China, who are in danger of being executed?  What has to happen in this country before we realize that China is our mortal enemy.  Always has been and always will be.  Has our government taken any action against China for the gross mistreatment of Chinese Christians or even American Christians in China today?  Of course not.  We wouldn't want to offend the Chinese and find ourselves unable to buy Chinese products in America today!  There wouldn't be any products left in our American stores!

We live in an evil world!

I have come to the place in life where life has no meaning!

Our world has no use for people who aren't full of greed,

or who are not striving for power in order to control others.

Tomorrow means nothing!  It will only bring death and destruction!


Our people no longer know the difference between right and wrong!

Our government and our churches are corrupted and evil.

I am a man disappointed at what life has to offer.

All the good things that God has blessed us with in this nation,

are being stripped from our lives, one by one.

Soon God will return and when He does,

millions will die or turn against God.

Soon real Christians will not be able to

live within our society and maintain their faith.


I have come to the conclusion that all our churches

are nothing more than social organizations

that teach their denominational theology and never consider the truth.


I consider Bill & Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Janet Reno,

Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson,

Yasser Arafat, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler

to be some of the most evil people that have ever lived on this earth!


Democrats (Especially Liberal Democrats), The Liberal Press,

ACLU, NOW, EPA, FDA, FAA, FBI, CIA, ATF, USDA, AMA,

Abortion, and liberalism in general, are evils that are eating our nation up

by with a cancer, from the inside.
