Urgent Comment from Understand The Times

September 15th, 2010

A meeting held recently in Austria attended by the “elite,” has set in motion the agenda that will change the world until Jesus comes for His Church in the rapture. (I Thessalonians 4:17).

Expect three trends to happen fulfilling the 666 plan:

  1. The development of a global government. (6)
  2. The development of a global currency within a global economy. (6)
  3. The development of a global religion for peace. (6)

The “fundamental transformation” of the United States and every other country in the world has begun.

Born-again Bible believing Christians will be a remnant. Believers who follow the true Jesus and His Word will proclaim the truth in love and expose the “lie”. This will happen worldwide.

Christians can expect the following:

  1. The shocking collapse of many well respected “Christian” organizations.
  2. The development of a counterfeit bride for a counterfeit Christ (Revelation 17:1-9).
  3. Perilous times (2 Timothy chapter 3).

The counter prevention for Apostasy

  1. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalms 122:6).
  2. Read 2 Timothy 4:1-8.
  3. Pray each day to be led by the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13).
  4. Proclaim the gospel. (2 Corinthians 4:3-5).
  5. Be a watchman for Jesus Christ. (Ezekiel 3:17).
  6. Be a good servant. (2 Timothy chapter 2).
  7. Read Colossians chapters 1 though 4

Sincerely in the name of Jesus Christ,
Roger Oakland

Florida Minister Determined to Hold 9/11 Quran Burn

September 9th, 2010

I understand what Pastor Terry Jones is trying to do. He is trying to waken people to the clear and present danger that Islam presents. However, in the vehicle chosen may do so, but shall surely cause offense to Christ.

Whether the church burns the Qur’an or not, they will still come for us, the infidel. America is the great Satan, the (used to be)friend of Israel. Terrorists will clamor to destroy anything American including killing us.

I think the book is anti-Christ, and full of lies. After all Allah is called the best of deceivers, by the Qur’an itself. I know who the father of lies is, John 8:44 is certainly clear on that.

Contrast this to the God of the bible, Who cannot lie (Titus 1:2.) In fact, it is impossible for Him to lie (Hebrews 6:8.)

There is no question that the capricious god of the Qur’an is not and cannot be the same unchangeable God of the bible.

BUT… 

I think that this pastor is wrong on burning the Qur’an as a public spectacle. You may ask, why?

The good news of salvation in Jesus is offensive enough. It requires us to look at ourselves in the light of truth. We know that what we have done our entire lives is laid open before God. If it is separated into two piles labeled good and bad, the bad pile is remarkably larger. This is the offense, we cannot DO anything to please God.

So I say no to Qur’an burning simply to not bring any undue hardship and disdain. Let us be resolved to not add offense to the offense of the gospel. Be resolved to apply 1 Corinthians 10:18-31 to our lives.

Remembering, 1 Corinthians 10:31-33, in whatever you do, do all to the glory of God! Live lives that glorify God, that alone shall bring offense.

UPDATE 9 Sep 10, 8:00 PM:

Pastor Terry Jones has cancelled his Qur’an burning. Praise God for that decision. Now for the offense he caused… will he repent?

Only time will tell! And I shall leave the matter between God and Pastor Jones.

Oval Office Extreme Makeover? – Political Punch

August 30th, 2010

There are reports that the Oval Office had an extreme make-over this past weekend. I marvel at the timing, well… no I don’t!

But, if I were the betting type, I would wager the primary color used is red, or possibly green. But since I am not, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is was this really necessary?

Was the expenditure from the public treasury justifiable in our precarious economic times?

Or are those of the political elite that far disconnected from the average Joe?

We shall see, soon!

School Group Told Not To Pray On U. S. Supreme Court Steps

August 13th, 2010

Another story that shows the mettle of our Next Greatest Generation.

This reprehensible act occurred earlier this year in May. A small school group bowed their heads to say a prayer on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. They were approached by a police officer and told…

“Ma’am, I’m not going to tell you that you can’t pray, but you can’t do it here,” he said, according to Mrs. Rigo. “Please go somewhere else.”

Is this not chilling?

The First Amendment is almost completely done in. Once the newspapers are bailed out, where will you get your news?

2 Months After Students Silenced, Crack NBC Washington Bureau Breaks the Story

August 12th, 2010

2 months after some of our Next Greatest Generation were caught in an act of alleged “civil disobedience,” NBC got the scoop!

Sadly, why is singing the U.S. National Anthem a demonstration? Furthermore, why are there “completely content neutral” areas in any U.S. National Park? And then that begs a really OBVIOUS question… isn’t that oxymoronic?

But then the journalist, probably a college graduate, is most likely a moral relativist, and may not understand the issues involved.

Sigh! There is no such thing as a free press in corporate-controlled newsrooms. Truth is what the state says is true, when it says it is true.

Clinton texts a $10 donation to Pakistan flood relief

August 6th, 2010

Wow! A whole $10!

All this week we have been saturated with the approaching “royal” wedding. After all the Clintons are busy planning to spend up to $5,000,000 for Chelsea’s wedding. Yet, Hillary Clinton has the time, and extra cash to “set an example” for the rest of us. by texting $10 for some truly in need.

The example brings to mind words like stingy, cheap and miserly… however these do not even begin to describe the discrepancy! That is just .0002% of the projected spending on 1 PERSON! There may be an estimated 12 million who will need aid in and around Swat Valley Pakistan due to the floods.

Those who work hard to bring home an average salary will probably never come close to earning $5,000,000. Yet these same people will gladly send $10 to help another. That $10 costing them personally almost an hour of labor. This would be a great sacrifice to a majority of generous and self-less Americans.

While those in Pakistan will have trouble finding just clean water to drink, the political elite (read left) will be wining and dining on all the best that there is!

These are the same people who tell us they are the champions of the poor. I think they are nothing more than modern day slave traders who steal from hard working Americans.

Do we need any other example of the hypocrisy of the democrats?

Regardless of your political leanings, if you would like to help those in need and live in the U.S., please text the word SWAT to the number 50555. Please bear in mind that the donation goes to a United Nations relief agency UNHCR.

The Danger of Sincrety

July 3rd, 2010

Today, many are given to this air of reconciliation. Political apologists would have you believe it is centrism or really, being moderate or better, progressive, somewhere between the political extremes of liberalism and conservatism. The real essence of the problem, is that capitalism without morality tends to the anarchy of lust and greed. This is dangerous enough, having liberty requires exercising self-discipline and responsibility. They call it the Third Way. The Third Way is sincrety, simply stated, trying to unite two irreconcilable things. These irreconcilable things are not what they would have you believe, let me explain.

As a society we are encourage to forget God. In so doing we have driven morality out of our schools, our homes, our entertainment and even our government. In return, there is a lack of self-control (Galatians 5:22-23) and personal responsibility, lawlessness grows. Consequently, this requires more of an external control and temperance, usually in the form of government.

This governmental control attempts to dictate morality and communal behavioral standards that apply to institutions and individuals alike. As personal self-control wanes, the reigns of government control must become tighter. This is the tipping the other end of the scale, and the centralized, command-and-control tyrannies of socialism, communism and Marxism. This type of government become dangerous because morality is rooted in the heart of the individual by God and is exercised in relationship to and knowledge of God. When the individual forgets God, and his responsibility to God, and the government then has to dictate morality, it becomes the arbiter of morality, deciding what is right and what is wrong. This is extremely dangerous.

The genius of our founding fathers, was finding a middle ground between these two extemes of anarchy and tyranny. One where the morality of the individual was recognized as God given. And with that personal morality, came sovereignty. This sovereignty required liberty, such that came from God and the government could not take away! They established a ance of power in governmental structure and prohibited the government from infringement on individual rights. This form of government recognized that sovereignty is bestowed upon the individual and not the government!

In the history of the world, this had not been done. As most governments place sovereignty in a person or particular group of rulers, not so in the United States.

The Third Way is not some reconciliation between partisan political extremes, but it is a way to reconcile these two forms of sovereignty. One that requires the individual to cede his control to that of another, transferring sovereignty to the government. Eventually, the government will be the arbiter of freedom, providing the individual with choices. This is just another version of the lie… the one Satan told in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:1-7. In essence, he took the freedom Eve had to eat of every tree of the garden, and gave her choices; she could remain as she was, or she could be like God.

Look around, we see it everywhere… corporations are bad, yet they pay our wages. Government is good, yet it dips its hand in your pocket to steal your sweat. Becoming a parasite on government largess is good, working hard to provide for your family is not.

Marriage is seen as a restrictive covenant, not as to only benefit the furtherance of a society through procreation. But its very essence must be bended and twisted to satisfy individual whims of indulgence, relegating the ability of marriage as the primary vehicle to sustain society to obscurity. Eventually, that very society shall end up on the refuse heap of history. (That can be the only logical conclusion!)

This sincrety can be non-sensical , as in the claim that carbon-dioxide is a pollutant, when it is necessary for plants to grow and thrive.

Oftentimes it is subtle, as when we are told pregnancy is not always a human carrying another individual human being. Instead we are asked to believe it is really a lump of tissue, or worse, a parasite! We know, without the benefit of science it is another INDIVIDUAL human being.

The problem with sincrety, is the same as Paul asked in 1 Corinthians 5:6 “Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?”

Think about it, we let a little error cloud our thought processes, will the preponderance of right thinking win out, or will that little bit of error, pollute all of our thinking?

The battle for control of the church has begun… the weapon of choice is SINCRETY! It is even predicted by John in Revelation 3:15-16, Jesus is speaking and says of the church of Laodicea “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”

Is this not a warning from the Savior Himself to be very wary about coupling irreconcilable things?

Why do we accept Yoga in the Christian church?

Yoga at best is against Christianity. It is a system of works based on merging with God. Though some of the language sounds the same, it is a system of works. The poses in Yoga are meant to teach the body how to die! Just peering at the five basic truths of Yoga is enough to make me run!

Why do we accept the peace sign in the Christian Church?

Take the time to find out why. It is not simply a symbol to bring about peace, but is being used to sincretize all of society. It has many different stories of its creation. However, some every citation couples some nefarious meaning to it. One cites its creation to a group with communist and Marxist sympathies. Regardless, it is a symbol of rebellion… and we attempt to reconcile it with our Christianity. That is precisely what it was used for in the 1960s, to rebel against the church and society Curiously, it is accepted and adored by many Christians today!

Why do we celebrate movies like Harry Potter and New Moon in the Christian Church?

They are really good moral stories, but that evil stuff is thrown in just for fun. Come on, incantations and vampires, are not true, yes, but some are carried away unawares. I mean seriously, we are to take character lessons from Edward (a vampire) and proclaim his testimony?

Is Jesus Christ not good enough?

And most dangerous of all, why do we accept the emergent church movement in the Christian Church?

With its focus on the here and now, social justice and sustainability… this is the near end-game of seduction. As Christians, we are encouraged to pray for God’s kingdom to come… it will be a Earthly kingdom, yes. However, it is not our home, or even our hope. Our hope is eternal, as it is written in Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.”

There is a war being waged… it is spiritual. It is being waged for individual hearts! It is both overt and subtle, through using subterfuge and Hegelian dialectic it reaches deep into the church snaring elders and pastors. The powers-that-be may just be useful pawns, however they serve the father of lies. He is hard at work, knowing as we, that his time is fleeting. These leaders are moving us to the place we are warned to stay away from… medicority. Jesus Himself warned us of His reaction to mediocrity in Revelation 3:16… “I will spit you out of my mouth.”

I would even point to a hint of this prediction in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, recorded in the Daniel 2:31-45. The image Nebuchadnezzar saw in his sleep was impressive… and it is easily explained by Daniel with revelation from God.

The image is sort of “timeline” of world empires, with the gold head representing the Babylonian empire. Each empire deteriorates, as is evident in its movement from the more prominent position of the head on the body and composition of better materials. As each succesive empire appears, it occupies a less prominent place in the body and the material is of slightly inferior value and density. We find ourselves somewhere close to the feet and toes of the statue… the toes being the final empire. Here is where it is stated in Daniel 2:41-43 as follows:

And as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.

Here you see sincrety described in the form of iron mixing with clay… but they do not hold together, because iron does not mix with clay.

Christian be wary of everything you are taught… even from your own church leaders. As is written in 1 John 4:1-6:

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Christian… you can be taught another Jesus. The enemy is working out the last pieces of his dominion. This is his lie, dominion theology taught by the emergent church, to realize Utopia in the here and now. He is using the language of the Christian to lure away captives unaware. Words like justice, hope, kingdom, conversion and salvation arer being used to connect concepts that are biblical with a concepts that are extra-biblical and prideful.

The emergent church is calling for “conversions that can change lives, neighborhoods and this world,” that is meant for the community. It is a gospel of communitariansim (better communism,) and relativism. It is not the true Gospel of the shocking individual recognition of personal sin that leads to responsibility, repentance and service to a holy and loving God through salvation in Jesus Christ.

So let’s be clear: sincretism… in other words is oxy-moronic!

Our Next Greatest Generation! – Security Stifles National Anthem at Lincoln Memorial?

July 1st, 2010

 

June 25, 2010 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Students attending Young America’s Foundation’s High School Leadership Conference were shocked when they were asked by security to stop singing the National Anthem on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Seriously?

Sean Balcomb, a Young America’s Foundation participant at the event said, “I didn’t know there was a volume limit for our National Anthem at a national monument, especially on such an important day in our great nation’s history.”

The song was offered as a tribute to veterans on the anniversary of the start of hostilities in the Korean War.

What do you do when your freedom is curtailed? Do what these proud patriots did when told to stop singing the Star Spangled Banner! Sing it again, LOUDER!

My hat is off to these patriots and future leaders! You gave me a glimmer of hope today!

Netanyahu turns to Bible in tussle over Jerusalem

May 12th, 2010

Hmmm… it kind of makes you wonder, but should it. Read the original article here.

Jerusalem is indeed a “cup of trembling” to the entire world, except of course, the United States. We have moved to our side, the wrong one.

May all mighty God bring peace to Jerusalem quickly. It will happen, He has promised…

God has an agenda for the ages and its centerpiece is Jerusalem. There are also some vast irreconcilable differences between Islam and Judaism and/or Christianity. Islam is not a continuation of Christianity or Judaism. It is the religion that will bring shackles to the entire world.

To find out God’s agenda as told by a former PLO terrorist… Wallid Shoebat go here.
