What Time Is It?
October 2005 Update
Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house. Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
Shakedown: Religious and Government
Brothers and sisters There is so much going on that is not getting into the news. That it would take a book to write. I am truly shocked at what is happening. I will relay some of these things to each of you but first I want to say something to every reader of this site who says they are a Christian. There is a serious problem in what is happening on the net with Christians. It is no little matter. I visit many, many sites. I listen to a great many radio programs and visit many' Christian' newsgroups and I have noticed that there is an alarming trend that I am seeing these days. There is an inordinate amount of information on UFO's, aliens, weird dreams, earthquakes, volcano's exposing the New World Order but little solid biblical teaching. People are being tossed to and fro with all manner of what I humorously called 'freak news' but when it comes to the hard facts of the world we live in and real pure biblical teaching, there is a dearth of it. There a lot of sites run by Christians and supposed Christians that are not feeding the sheep. They are scaring them and filling their heads with all kinds of strange speculations but very little real Biblical teaching is present. I can tell you that on this site when I put up an article about holiness, purification, persecution, then the hits are small. If I put up a dream or a vision or something about the New World Order, then I get lots of hits. I know that many of my readers do not have a firm Biblical background. I really try to teach them the whole gospel. The need for holiness, the coming persecution, the preparation of the heart and soul. This is extremely and utterly essential because even now, many are giving heed to seducing spirits. They are listening to 'prophets' who are not Christians and those who blend the Bible with new-age teachings. Some of these sites that I am critical of here, will have these new-age shaman on their radio shows and always diligently put links to these 'prophets' on their sites but when it comes to SOLID and purely biblical teachings they refuse to put them up. I have seen this again and again. If I try to post a word in some 'Christian' news-groups on holiness it won't get posted, but sure enough you will find a link to a new-age guy or some UFO-ogist on the same day. I have left many of these groups because I am beginning to realize that they are part of a very serious and growing problem in Christianity. They are turning it into a weirdo's club and freak show, not a holy temple. Now I realize that some of that stuff is entertaining and some if it is important, especially if it is dealing with 'earth changes' as the Bible is explicit that these are some thing we all should be paying attention to. Nevertheless, much of what I am seeing is not healthy. People selling 'alien' and UFO video's for prices considerably higher than even reprobate Hollywood charges. This is dead wrong and part of a religious shakedown going on with the Internet's so called 'remnant movement'. What are these men and women thinking? How can they be so far amiss and still to this day not see it? What is going on here? I feel that this is a such a serious problem that if it is not 'nipped in the bud' soon, even greater problems and they will become more pronounced. People are not studying their Bibles. They are studying new-age books and listening to UFO-freaks, but not to Christ Jesus. I exhort every one of you to take time to really study the word, spend considerably less time reading speculation and more reading the word.
It hurts me sometimes to see what is happening. I have walked with God a long time and have done this site, which is in itself a miracle for over five years. Many of these sites refuse to link to me. One of those sites, which dutifully sells all of his materials should be very careful of what they say and do regarding how he treats other minsters whom God has called to do his work in this hour, for all who come against the true servants of the LORD will float in a river of tribulation and woe in the days ahead if they do not repent. The difference between this site and many others is this; I focus on end-time events as they relate to bible prophecy. The political, economic, environmental (earth changes) and sound Christian doctrine are what I do because that is what we are to be watching and paying attention to. While I do cover some other issues I am not obsessed with the speculative topics that cloud the minds so many other 'remnant' Christians. I do have many dreams and visions on this site. I do this because God promised to give them to his people in the last days. I do not believe every dreamer or visionary who claims, 'I have seen, I have seen!' Others who study the word need to also keep these things in a clear sense of perspective because there are deceivers out there. Many of them pose as Christians and many others actually think they are Christians. Deceit is everywhere.
The Bush administration as well, is shaking down the American public. Contracts are being awarded to unqualified companies to get the money and not perform the work they are contracted for. Is not unbelievable that morticians and funeral homes cannot and could get to reclaim bodies after Hurricane Katrina? Is it not amazing that contractors have received no bid contracts for work in the hurricane affected regions at considerably higher prices than locals can provide? All of this when America has no budget? This is corruption of the first order. Wasting millions of dollars for government contracts while bodies are still rotting in the homes of Americans because FEMA refuses to go in and recover them. What kind of President and administration do we have? What kind of wicked maliciousness lurks in the heart of our President that he could allow this kind of rampant corruption to continue and do nothing? Then you have more preachers of the humanistic gospel stating that killing blacks in the womb would reduce crime, and this wicked man refusing to apologize? What kind of filth is running this country? Should we exterminate all white males to stop corporate crime? It wouldn't stop it. Crime and evil are not black and white issues. They are spiritual issues. Should we abort all whites to to prevent the Kowalski's, the Lay's the Ebbers the eight KPMG partners that have been indicted for Tax Fraud from raping America and shaking its financial system to the core? God forbid that people begin to think in terms of exterminating people! This is Nazi talk. It springs from the Nazi spirit that has infected the Bush family since the says when the Presidents Grandfather was trading with the Nazi's during (in the middle of the war) WWII. This is wickedness. This is the demonic stronghold over our nation. When you hear these kinds of genocide remarks know that it springs from the spirit of Nazi-ism.
There are many events that bear watching in the world today I will cover a few of them for the benefit of my readers
As a former military member I can confidently say that we are getting our proverbial 'butts kicked' in Iraq. This is more of a reflection our political leadership than of the troops on the ground, though there is some blame to go to some of the officers and NCO's as well. I say Officers and NCO's because there have been some serious problems with our tactics in Iraq. We have not attempted to make friends in Iraq, a key job of any occupation force. The troops behavior (with many notable exceptions) have been rather poor and at times reprehensible to the native population. But in defense of the troops especially in the front lines many are just tired, overworked, under-appreciated and abused by the Bush administration. While the number of actual suicides is a classified statistic, my sources tell me it is a growing problem. In fact, it is becoming rather serious. The largest group of suicides are junior officers and young NCO's. Any military has its backbone in this group, its younger leaders. We are destroying our military with prolonged deployments in an unpopular, unproductive war that was deceitfully initiated. I know many of my readers are wholeheartedly behind this war. They think that maybe God told Bush to invade Iraq to save Israel from terrorists. If so, this much is sure, Israel is less, not more secure with a severely weakened, bogged-down and soon to be defeated US military. Those who put Israel in front of their own nation and the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi's (of whom many are Christians) whose only crime was to be born in Iraq have an inverted sense of priorities. God himself will protect Israel when she is at war. God does not need America. America needs God! America needs to repent of its sins and evils for, of a truth, when this war was first being discussed the Lord told me incessantly and repeatedly, 'this is a TRAP!' God gave me a word on this a long time ago. It is a hard, hard word and many will gainsay it. But when he gave it to me I knew that God is increasingly viewing America as he views someones bowel movement. He is really angry with our evil, the mass murder, the wickedness of our leaders and people and just like a bowel movement1 we will get flushed down the toilet. But God is going to plead with America first, through a severe chastisement through hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, fires, terrorism and severe economic disruptions.
Folks, that is exactly what our Iraqi adventure has turned out to be; a quagmire and trap. This is the only place such deceitfulness can wind up. You cannot lie continually and have God bless your actions. It just is not going to happen, despite what the false prophets in America will tell you. This is where so many, many folks miss the boat. Lies are the surest way into the lake of fire. Sodomy, fornication and murder are all ways too. But the only sin that the LORD reserves eternal damnation for ALL who commit it is for liars2. Let this be a stern warning to all of us, for those that make them and love them will be lost. This is how I knew this war was an accursed thing. It was fomented and perpetuated by the devils tools, lies. There is a deceiving spirit that has fallen on the nation. It is not just that the government is continually lying to the people, another problem is that the government is continually lying to itself. It has lost sight of the truth and this is why it falls into its demonic system of falsehood and insanity.
This map shows the strategic thinking behind the war in Iraq and why the President refuses to leave. They feel they must have this toehold in the middle east to have access to oil and stop Iran from opening up its New Petroleum market which will accept Euro's, thus ending a monopoly the dollar has had in oil sales. It will also, in their minds, give them access to the oil of Kuwait or Saudi Arabia should they become unstable.
And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.
You see, God can and does deceive leaders to fulfill his purpose. Look at how it was done here with Ahab. The LORD sent a spirit down specifically to the false prophets to entice him to go to war. I truly believe that this is exactly what happened in our war on Iraq. At the end of this age God is going to send a strong delusion on the people of the earth. Yes, God is going to send it. Keep this in mind, God is only responding to the desires of the people, if lies are what they want and respond positively to, then he will give them what they want. But this delusion of the last days is a strong one3 and very difficult to break out of. Folks are going to fall for it via false prophets, new-age shaman, the scientific priesthood and the nightly news. So yes, I think God sent this President of ours a bunch of lying spirits and false religious-right sycophants to tell Bush God was on his side in this war which was exactly what he wanted to hear. They told him that we must protect Israel by wars of aggression, torture and mass murder. God did this not so much to punish Bush but to punish America, for I believe that God has led us into a terrible trap of which Iraq is only one part of.
Our war in Afghanistan was perhaps different as there was no need to tell big lies to get people to agree. Bin Laden and is cohorts were there and even if you question weather or not he was responsible for 911 (I do not think he was the primary person responsible), he is an enemy of this nation and catching him was not and is not a bad idea. Let us also remember that the 10 kings in the last days conspire together and will destroy the great whore to fulfill God's purpose. Now the 10 kings are a demonic entity but they will fulfill God purpose when he deems the time is right. This is what I believe happened with our invasion of Iraq, the LORD did this to lead us into a trap, just like he did with Ahab, via the false prophets that populate Americas religious-right pulpits. This war was probably one of the greatest military disasters to happen to America since the Civil War. The casualties, officially reported are not as high, but if you count the number of cripples that this war has produced be assured that it won't belong before it does. Remember this as well, the death toll is much higher that the official toll. This is done by shipping critically wounded out of Iraq and if they die, outside Iraq, they are not counted as casualties. This is how deceptive our military leadership has become. Lies lies and more lies. Do the people even care? Most do not, but there is a rather vocal minority that is speaking out about and the corruption going on in our Federal Government.
Our troops have no lines of communications and they cannot even keep the road to the airport from the base in the 'green zone' free of Iraqi fighters. The troops must form huge massive columns to get from one place to another, because if they do not they will be picked off by these fighters. We may lose many, perhaps even most of the troops that are deployed in Iraq and I suspect that this administration will try to hide that fact when it happens. Things are just that bad. The UK is going to pull its troops from Iraq. That will probably happen in the spring. Why? They cannot get the people in the White House to listen to reason. Every suggestion that the Brits have put forward has been shot down by the Administration. Thus, the UK is leaving Iraq to the Americans. They see it for what it is, a quagmire. But know this, there are many military leaders who are quietly protecting their troops. They are following the letter but not the spirit of their orders. They are doing what they can to save American lives in an impossible situation that should never have arisen. But the UK's own actions in Iraq have been far less than noble as the recent 'jail break' in southern Iraq shows. They were attempting to break out their own personnel who were accused of dressing up as Iraqi Mujahedeen and terrorizing local villagers. This is as I have been saying all along, much of the terrorism is not Iraqi, it is coming from the US and the UK and dutifully reported as Iraqi terrorism.
For every good officer in the DOD, there 10 bad ones. How many of you know that there are members in the US military who have their families in the witness protection program? Why? Generals associated with the procurement system have done a great deal to try to stop the rampant corruption in the DOD, the no-bid contracts in particular. They have had their wives and children threatened. They get mysterious calls, not unlike the 'do you know where your children are?' seen in movies. The only thing one must do to figure out where these threats are coming from is to figure out who stands to lose billions in contracts if the laws were followed and they were put out to competitive bidding. This is just how corrupt the system and the Bush administration is. Folks I could tell you horror story after horror story and some are amazing. But that is how far the nation has sunk.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
This is the new America I am talking about, the old America is dead. The last shovel full of dirt has been spread over her grave. Sadly, no one was invited to the funeral services. Her passing was classified 'Top Secret' by our establishment. Funeral services were held in secret. Now an impostor has stolen the identity of the venerable woman who once lit up the world with her liberty. Now a harlot has taken her place. She has put up a price list for time in her bed, one must be rich in order to afford it. The world's rich and powerful have lined up at her bedchamber to commit fornication with the Great Harlot.
Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. - Secretary Of Defense William Cohen
The earth continues its changes. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the 7.6 earthquake in Pakistan that looks to claim over 30,000 lives, the massive quake in Peru that has left thousands homeless, the volcano in Ethiopia that has displaced tens of thousands; these have all happened in just the past two months! The birth pangs of the end of this age are getting closer and closer together. But as Christ warned us we are not be be alarmed at these things. We do need to watch and be aware of the hour.
I must wonder what is happening to our earth that is causing so much change. There is the global warming theory put forth and perpetuated by the scientific priesthood. These are front men for the large corporations the give them grants to keep them employed. They generally sing whatever tune their paymasters desire. I do believe that the earth is warming. I believe that the causes are manyfold
Measurable increase in Solar Activity
Change in the ocean currents since the Tsunami in December 2004
Perhaps changes going on in the core of the earth that is awakening volcano's around the world.
I also think there are other problems as well that the Kyoto treaty that our corporate elite are bent on getting passed does not address. First and foremost in my mind is the destruction of the rain forests. This must stop. I think that this alone is having an enormous impact on the global environment. Another problem is pollution, especially in the third and developing world. The primary culprit here is corporate malfeasance. So I think that there is a global warming problem but the questionable science that points the finger at 'greehouse gasses' and 'ozone depletion', is corporate serving and at times disingenuous in its conclusions. These theories are far more nebulous than the 'hard evidence' destruction of the rain forests and increased solar activity. But solutions to these problems would force corporations to behave differently. Whereas if the Kyoto treaty is passed, corporations will be able to cut labor costs because they will be forced to shift their operations to places like China and India who will not have the limitations on pollution that America will have, if the treaty is passed.
But there can be little doubt that the earth is changing and it seems to be doing so rapidly. One look at what is happening in the arctic should make a believer out of anyone. It is hard for me as a non-scientist to speculate as to what is happening so I will not, other than to say that the Bible does clearly indicate that at polar shift is coming. This means that things here on earth are going to get much more unstable before our LORD returns. Look for more earthquakes increasing in intensity as we move forward. Millions will die from these things and these events are very important for we Christians to pay attention to.
Changes On The Net
Having an Internet ministry has its blessings and curses. But overall it is a good thing. God has blessed this ministry and kept this humble man going all of these years. Glory to God! Yet, one can see that there are changes brewing on the net. Alex Jones claims that AOL is blocking his sites. This is now a new thing as many a believer has said that AOL has blocked Christian sites, newsletters e-mail and newsgroups. When one hears of this one has to wonder how true these accusations are but when one hears from from various groups for all over the spectrum one has to give these stories some credence. Slowly I think that it will be more difficult to minister on the web. This will be as much because of 'conspiracy' as plain old greed. Consider this story on the Alex Jones Saga. Did AOL block his site? I think they may have tried it in the past but I am not so sure that this is what happened this time. But the greater threat that I see is in the turf battle going on as the UN and US vie for control of the Internet. I think if the UN gets a hold of it Christians will eventually be banned, especially if they preach against homosexuality. The UN is determined to make this perverted form of sexuality the norm in the world and not the exception. This is because there is no procreation involved and because, spiritually speaking, it is under the control of Lucifer and it is seeking to drive man to a place of sin where God must act. Satan wants to destroy that thing which he hates only a little less than he hates God, that being the human race. He is driving the world into a confrontation with God that man cannot win. I say look for big changes in the way the Internet operates over the next year or so. As the Devil tries to root out any semblance of truth from the minds of men.
The US is in a current account crisis. It is extremely dependent on foreign borrowing to sustain its lifestyle. Do you not think it rather strange that just a couple of days into the new fiscal year both the Federal Reserve Chairman and the secretary of the Treasury are visiting both Japan and China, the number one and number two holders of US debt. Listen to the rhetoric. Once again Snow is berating China to revalue the Yuan again. They recently accommodated us with a rather conservative revaluation. Now we want more. Folks, we are in trouble... big trouble. You let these financial sites try to assuage the massive debt bomb we have placed under the hull of our own ship, the USS Titanic if they want to. Let them call folks like me 'doomsayers'. Not one of them has said where we are going to get the $600-800 Billion dollars we need to keep the government going. Not one. They may do their best to give you a load of highly technical sounding gobbledygook to confuse and obfuscate the WHO of this most important matter. We need billions and we need it fast. Keep your eyes on the current account deficit, Greenspan and Snow. Watch for signs that we may be running out of money. What will be the signs? Programs that do not get funded, important operations that seem to run out of money. Much of this will be blamed on partisan bickering, some of it will be, most of it will be that we are running out of money. These stories will not be on the front page. They will be in an innocuous sounding story in a couple of sentences buried deep within it. So keep your eyes open. This is why inflation warnings are so important. You see if the FED and Treasury resort to printing money to monetize our debt inflation will show up in the economy. This is probably what we are likely to see first and when things get too bad inflation wise, Government spending may suffer. We will have to see. Let me note here that I am not saying that there will be no buyers of US debt this year. This is simply not true, there will be many. The real question is will be be able to obtain the entire $600-800 billion shortfall or will we be forced to print up part of it to make up for the shortfall. We will deceive in order to hide the US buying our own debt. There is only one other way we could get the money. I think it likley tht it to a small degree may be in use. Click here read it and consider, where is the money really going. More here and here. Where the money went and is going is speculation, that it is missing is not.
Folks a severe chastisement is coming upon America. Judgment upon the wicked and chastisement upon those whom the Lord still favors, saved and are unsaved4. Big changes have already happened and if they haven't hit your neighborhood yet, be assured that they will soon. So be ready for whatever God would have you do. If you listen to the well heeled liars on TV and you can see that there is a serious problem. Look at the televangelist who rants and raves on his TV station. He is screaming and yelling on TV about a 'Venezuelan Dictatorship'. There is no dictatorship in Venezuela. People have voted in elections that were certified free and fair. Chavez is an elected leader and has been re-elected several times with very a high percentage of the vote in his favor, much to the ire of the corporations that are destroying the planet with their greed and avarice. Folks, the Venezuelan people governing themselves democratically is not a problem. The problem is that people like Pat Robertson do not seem to want democracy in South America. So he calls democracy a dictatorship to deceive Christians into supporting assassinations and invasions. The religious movement that this man is a key part of is as false as a three-dollar bill. Stay away from it if you value your eternal soul! To those who are too timid to point this out to their readers, get off that fence and expose these lies for what they are, lest you be found in a place where all liars go. Chavez is no angel, to be sure, but should we slander and defame a world leader because the people voted for him in order that their nation will not be raped by the people this very wealthy televangelists is fronting for? Years of abuse the people of South American have endured as a result of the people this televangelist supports is the reason these things are happening. Now, in nation after nation in South America, the shackles of debt and deceit are coming off of the people and the corporate machine in America does not like it. Now they (GOP war-debt machine) need the support of voting white suburbia for what they plan and Pat Roberson is preparing the way for some big policy changes in South America. Much has already been done and more will certainly follow to keep those with brown skin pigmentation and are poor subjugated to the banking-corporate cartel that has got a stranglehold on America, north and south.

A Look At How America Really Treats The Poor.
Do you want to know why American Christianity is dying on the vine? Why it is about to be cast off as an unfruitful branch and is nigh unto cursing? I will tell you one main reason. Its treatment of the poor and those less fortunate than themselves. At a local Church not too far from me, they have a Christian school. It is all white, in other words there are no blacks attending. When a missionary came to the school and suggested that the school take in some Dominican children so that they could see how other Christians live in America, the parents were not pleased. They made comments like, “we don't want any of those people here, they're all criminals” and “I just don't think it is a good idea to have 'those people' here”. Then another parent stood up and said, “maybe we can bring in some Scandinavian children instead”. Here is the kind of satanic Christianity I am talking about. It is not as though these religious dupes don't know any better. Two centuries of American history should have taught them the lessons of racial hatred. It hasn't. Hate is still their most prized possession, like a diamond or a ruby they wear on their finger. They stroke their hate regularly like a pet viper. They will fight like the devil to keep that hate as the core part of their being. This is why there this severe chastisement is coming on America. It hates the poor and especially poor black people. Cops beat poor black men for walking down the street and people hardly take notice. It takes an AP film crew to get the world's attention. This is why people in the Suburbs who hate black people are going to get a strong dose of reality very soon. They hate the poor and the black so God will show them exactly what he thinks of their racist hatred and the way they rob the poor in the banks they work at, the government agencies they work at, the coffee shops that mistreat the poor man when he walks in, or the department store who send their in-house detectives to follow the black kid around the store while the pretty white lady robs them blind. They make snide remarks about black crime while Key Lay is still free, un-indicted and not charged for any crime! This is a satanic form of hypocrite-Christianity that is being preached and taught here. Such people should be cast out the Church for holding such satanically inspired hypocrisy and hatred. Instead nothing happens. Why? The 'Church' needs the money from tuition and offerings. Mammon first, God second. This has always been the real test of faith: Mammon or Christ. White, so-called remnant Christians are the worst. They talk a good game about love, but they never talk about this kind of hatred in the Church. The fires of purification will strike them as well and either their racism and their silent toleration of it goes into the fire to get purged or the person goes in the fires with it, rejected as an unfruitful vine. No racist is entering into the Kingdom Of God and Christ.
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
Be not like the vine that was accursed by Christ because it did not bear fruit.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
You see the difference? Hatred is a work of the flesh. Murder is a work of the flesh. Love is a fruit of the spirit. So folks this chastisement is going to be a very painful affair. People are going to be run out of their jobs, their homes, their families will break up. People who once thought they were rich will become the very poor they despised. Folks, do not let that be you, do not be the branch that is cast into the fire. Learn to love your brother, the poor the downcast and the homeless. Do this and you will find a friend in Jesus Christ. Despise the poor and be assured that you will become his enemy. Do it after your severe chastisement and you will become his eternal enemy.
Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them. For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right. Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time. Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat? The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.
Folks this is not a time to be timid. We must remember the poor to help them, not support those who rob them and murder them. If you want to be part of a more socially conscious Christianity, one that is a true light to the world that people will take notice then and is the light that Christ wants us to be then:
Stop supporting evil
Remember the poor in every land.
Serve the persecuted Church.
Stay away from the religious-right and its spiritual harlotry.
Give to local shelters for the homeless, poor and sick.
Expose the evil that is going on and stop making excuses for it.
Most of all let your own life be an example of love, truth and righteousness.
Bear witness to the light with your life as well as with your lips.
Be quick to trust NO person. Keep your own council and be led by the Spirit.
Get off the fence and defend the truth, stop sitting silent when lies are spoken by religious phoney's so that they can bludgeon the poor. Most people do it out of cowardice and fear. Fear of loss of friends or web traffic. How is that different from the major media who refuse to report the truth?
The times are dangerous and we all need to be aware of what is happening in the world around us. Stay away from sites that dabble in occultism and new age mysticism and refuse to rebuke lies and evil. Stay away from those who love Israel first and God and his righteousness second . All nations will be judged in these days and Israel too will be severely chastised. Let the Israel first-ers remember this as well; God is coming for a Church that is holy, not one who stood up for lies and masonic evil to save Israel. Israel is dear to God to be sure, but when God needs our help to influence geopolitical events in Israel's favor he will tell us. He will never tell us to lie, deceive, terrorize, torture and commit mass murder to do so. The Devil will ask us to do these things but God will not. The Devil will tell us to be quiet when these evils go on, God will not. If you belong to Christ Jesus get off that fence and love righteousness and truth. Because everyone who sits on that fence when our LORD comes will be eternally damned. There is no middle ground in this spiritual war. Stay away from the UFO-ogists and alien-salesmen who sell their books and video's for a hefty price. These are merchants of mammon who seek to make money off you you. Flee these corrupter's of the ways of righteousness, rather seek truth, peace and righteousness. Those who are obedient to God's call of ministry will never sell that which was freely given. Remember who it was who sold the LORD for 30 pieces of silver.
May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
The Psalms tell exactly how God, the almighty, views the poor.
For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
A Prayer of David. Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
In Christ Jesus,
Mark S. Watson
1I know that this is a foul metaphor, but that is just the kind of stench we are making in God's nostrils.
2For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
3And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
4Yes God still favors many a lost soul, family members of this saints, and those who will one day come to salvation.
