The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things

The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things

 

From my childhood on I have come across many people who thought/believe that the sign of the ‘Anti-Christ’ and the ‘Mark of the Devil’ are one and the same. There is no Biblical reasoning for this error in thought except for the fact that most Christians seldom open or study the Scriptures to find out what is so, or what is not so. I am over 60 yrs old now and I have studied the Scriptures since I was ten and I have learned many things about truth in this time. I am not here to argue with anyone, I am simply going to state to you what I believe to be God’s truths concerning this matter, you can believe what you wish, I am simply trying to do my duty as a servant of God. I am a person who enjoys reading historical and religious documents whether they be from secular Christian authors or writers with a narrow view-point concerning religion and world events caused by religion.

 

First let us look at ‘the mark of the Devil’ that Scripture speaks of. First we must understand that every government on earth is not ‘holy’, they are man-made and man by nature is carnal, not Godly. Scripture speaks of the ‘mark of the Devil’ being put into the head or the right hand of the people. What do you think this mark could be? Obviously it will be something that a person can’t just take off of themselves. What could this ‘thing’ be ? How could people be ‘marked’? Two thousand years ago I guess people could have been branded with an iron or even with a blade but in these times that we are living in technology has made ‘marking’ much simpler. It is my belief that this ‘mark’ will simply be a computer chip put in underneath the skin in the underside of the wrist (in Roman days the wrist was considered to be part of the hand). Most likely only a few people like government agents and military officers would have such chips put into the brain. You may say that this is a bunch of bull-s–t that no one would ever let the government do that to them, all that I can say to that is, really? When the government decides that they can not secure the money because of forgeries including State sponsored forgers like Iran and China? We all should know by now that our personal credit cards and the banks they are off of cannot protect our accounts just as the places we shop at cannot protect their own systems from hackers they cannot protect our information. Also it is obvious that the governments cannot protect our own borders as to whom is coming into the country so that employers can know who it is safe to hire or whom is not. You may say that you would never let that happen to you but when the government stops using and stops printing cash so that you must have the chip to be able to work, buy any food, pay your rent or mortgage or to even put gas in your car then you are going to have a problem. You will lose your home, car, job, and the ability to pay utilities or to ever buy something to eat, will you change your mind when you are living in a cardboard box under a bridge? If you can’t pay your taxes without the chip the government will simply take everything you ever thought you owned. Here in America I think that the identification for each person will be their social security number, but they could obviously come up with another number system to identify each of us with. Why would I call this event the mark of the Devil, if the Devil is the owner of the  government…?

 

Now about ‘the sign of the anti-Christ’. In Scripture the sign of God is the number three as in the Trinity and the sign of man is the number six as in the sixth day God created man. The sign of the anti-Christ is noted as 666, this is not the mark of the Devil, it is the sign of three very powerful people who will be possessed by Demons who answer only to their boss Satan. These three people will come from different parts of the globe, one from the east (China) one from the center (above, north of the Holy Lands) meaning the European Union area and the third will come from the Americas to the west. These three will come after they uproot the ten nations/horns and consolidate their power into a tighter noose around the world’s population. After they have almost all power on the Earth ‘The’ anti-Christ which is Satan himself will rise up from below (the Temple Mount) and usurp the power of his three generals into his own lap. By this time almost all people who have refused the chip will either be dead or in hiding trying to exist each day hiding in caves and forests. Most all of the people who will flat-out refuse the chip will be devout Christians. Do you remember the play book of the U.S. government with the Indian people? Take their guns so they can’t defend themselves or feed themselves, put them into a small area then send in the troops and wipe them out. Scripture tells us that all of the Saints/believers would be wiped out if not for the second advent of Christ returning and sending Satan back to Hell. I believe that almost all of the American people including those who call themselves devout Christians will give in to getting the chips ‘mark of the Devil’ simply because they love having a roof over their heads and food to eat more than they love the Word of God (Jesus). If we love this life and the treasures of it more than God then we will lose our own Souls suffering ‘the second death’, forever separation from God when we are sent to live forever in the fires of Hell.

5 Things Written by Martin Luther King Jr. That Everyone Should Read

The words written about Martin Luther King Jr. during his too-short life and in the half-century since his assassination — 50 years ago Wednesday, on April 4, 1968 — would be impossible to count. King himself left a deep archive of writings, speeches and sermons, too. His spoken orations in particular are a powerful reminder of why he was destined to become part of the pantheon of American icons.

“One has to remember that King above all was a preacher,” says Carolyn Calloway-Thomas, chair of African American and African Diaspora Studies at the Indiana University Bloomington and an editor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Sermonic Power of Public Discourse.

While she notes that he was so prolific that it’s near impossible to choose, Calloway-Thomas spoke to TIME about the pieces of King’s work that everyone should know about. They are:

“The Death of Evil upon the Seashore” (May 17, 1956)

“The death of the Egyptians upon the seashore is a glaring symbol of the ultimate doom of evil in its struggle with good.”

This sermon was delivered to a massive crowd at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education ruling against school segregation, at an early moment in this phase of the civil rights movement, with the Montgomery bus boycott still ongoing. To Calloway-Thomas, the sermon is noteworthy for the optimistic vision it presented at such a moment. “He had to help African-American people imagine themselves,” she says. “I think the Death of Evil upon the Seashore is that speech.”

It wasn’t the first time King preached on these ideas, and in fact the link he draws between the Biblical exodus and the story of African-American progress toward freedom and equality was an old one, but those present noted that his delivery that day was particularly moving. “He taps into that reservoir, that myth of the Hebrew children in bondage,” Calloway-Thomas says, “and he elevates it and makes it more publicly known.”

Letter from a Birmingham Jail (April 16, 1963)

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Yes, this is a letter, not a speech or sermon — but Calloway-Thomas says it’s worth including on such a list anyway. After all, the circumstances that created this letter are inherently linked to the fact that he couldn’t deliver a speech in person. At the time, King found himself jailed in Alabama after ignoring an injunction against protests in Birmingham. During that time, a group of clergymen wrote an open letter urging him away from protests. He wanted to respond but, from the jail, his only option if he wanted to answer quickly was to write it down. “Ideas have moments and if those moments aren’t used, you lose that rhetorical moment and it no longer has the force it had,” Calloway-Thomas says.

So, in a format she likens to a spoken call and response, he answers the questions that were posed to him about his methods. While also explaining that he’s on strong biblical footing, he provides the public with a way to understand the work he’s doing. His rhetorical skills are also on display as he uses a story about his 6-year-old daughter’s early perceptions of racism and segregation to underline that the matter is not theoretical. In the years since, this letter has become one of 20th century American history’s most famous documents.

“I Have a Dream…” (Aug. 28, 1963)

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

The speech that remains Martin Luther King Jr.’s most famous oration — one of the most famous orations in American history, if not world history — is that well-known for a good reason, Calloway-Thomas says. This was the moment when the world as a whole really saw King, and the moment was carefully orchestrated, framed by the Lincoln Memorial. “Think about how dazzling that was!” she says. “Think about the robust visuals and the lovely words echoing from Dr. King. It was an elixir that was made to circulate.”

But, she says, the power of his voice and the impact of the image can sometimes overwhelm the full message of the speech. “Dr. King had some pretty radical statements in that speech,” Calloway-Thomas adds. “Most people gloss over the part in that speech where King says that if we overlook the urgency of now there’ll be a rude awakening. I’ve never seen a student go to that section of the speech; people go right to ‘I have a dream’ and they don’t notice the threat.”

“A Time to Break Silence” (April 4, 1967)

“We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation. We must move past indecision to action. We must find new ways to speak for peace in Vietnam and justice throughout the developing world, a world that borders on our doors.”

In this speech, King publicly answers his conscience, as Calloway-Thomas puts it, on the matter of the Vietnam War. With an undercurrent of “anguish” about the fact that he feels he must speak, and must criticize the choices of Lyndon Johnson, who had often been an ally, he entered the arena of opposition to the war.

“This is an unsettling moment. People paid attention, but that meant there was backlash,” she says. President Johnson and many others felt that he ought to stay focused on domestic civil-rights issues and leave the foreign policy to them, but in this speech he makes clear why those two topics cannot truly be separated. That idea, Calloway-Thomas says, parallels the experience of earlier fighters for justice, such as Frederick Douglass, who got to the world stage with one kind of story — their personal freedom narratives, in that case — and shocked some of their allies when they showed that their thinking was far more expansive.

“I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” (April 3, 1968)

“I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.”

Start with the date on this one: that’s April 3, 1968, the night before King was assassinated. In this speech, which summons King’s primary background as a preacher, he returns to the story of Moses. Rather than speaking on the joy of the Exodus, though, he turns to the end of Moses’ life, and his death just outside the Promised Land to which he had delivered his people. King casts himself as another leader who may not be there for the end of the journey. “He used Christian values and Democratic traditions to bring people together, so it’s not surprising that he goes to this idea,” Calloway-Thomas says. “What’s significant here is when it occurred. It was almost apocalyptic. Because it occurred at that time it has lingering significance and carries with it an abundance of pathos.”

Of course, as Calloway-Thomas says, we can imagine a scenario in which King gave this speech and then lived. The emotional resonance of his words might be lessened without the seemingly prescient layer of fate, but the story would be there all the same. “Here’s a man talking about longevity, here’s a man talking about god’s Will, here’s a man talking about going up to the mountaintop and looking skyward toward heaven and looking over into the Promised Land,” she says. “It’s a gorgeous story.”

Are Donald Trump’s Muslim Ideas Correct; Nuts; Or Even Constitutional

Are Donald Trump’s Muslim Ideas Correct; Nuts; Or Even Constitutional

 

Even if America went exactly against what our Constitution allows and we excommunicate all people who believe in the Islamic faith from our shores unless the whole non-Islamic world follows suit it would be only America who gets ‘Black-balled’ in the eyes of the world. If we are going to break our Constitution, if we are going to break one of the moral codes our society was built upon, then the Government better have one heck of a good reason, or is there such a thing in your eyes? Is the exile of all Islamic believing people back to their country of origin a good idea? What if every single Islamic person on earth were located only in Arabic/Persian/Islamic countries, would this be a good idea? Now of course we would be needed to be banned from going into ‘their countries’, only humanitarian type products, no weapons! There is one question that I would like you Christians and you Jewish folks to think about as we Americans sweep the bare fields where Mosques once stood, who is next? What if the next ‘enemy of the state’ is it Christians? You know them Christians, always causing trouble. Do you remember the Indian folks of the late 1800’s here in America? Beat them down, round them up, disarm them, kill them, does that sound at all familiar? I’m just saying, crack the egg and the guts could fall out.

 

In my lifetime (over 60 yrs now) I have never seen news-headlines like what are bouncing off of the wires here in America lately. Some of the Republican Presidential candidates are making comments and statements that are far more brass than what the D.C., NYC, Hollywood commentators can seem to wrap their far right liberal education and training around. Just like the two parties leaderships don’t seem to get it, the ‘it’ being that the American people are totally fed up with business as usual when the whole nation and all American’s way of life is changing daily and those changes are for the worse. It is the politicians and the media that are clueless to the real world that all the rest of us are living in. Does Donald Trump lead America and most of the rest of the world into a world with bombings here on the homeland a couple of times a week, or do we break the Constitution and force all Islamic believing people to go back to their countries of origin? That is a hard policy, is it correct, nuts, or un-Constitutional?

 

Make no mistake about the issue of why the whole world must do this horrible thing (a point of view) of making one specific religion to clear off all American land. For those of you whom do not know these few facts I will give you a crash course on a basic fundamental that is at the heart of Islams teachings. The Quran is the Islamic Holy Book of the sayings of their Prophet Muhammad but their Holy Book called Hadith is the Book of the Actions of The Prophet. Make no mistake, Muhammad was a military general, the actions of the Prophet should make any human sick. Not only did he do horrible things to thousands of people, he laid out a very intelligent battle plan for all the followers of Allah to follow, until there are no more infidels/non-believers on the Earth. Folks, if a person is brought up in this pure evil all that person knows is this burning hate, that is if they are truly devout to Allah’s will. Folks it is not (radical Islam) it is (fundamental Islam). Folks there is nothing radical about these people who murdered 14 in southern California two years ago. When you are getting to the roots of the religion you believe in and this religion says to do these Demonic acts it is at this point that all people who were brought up in the religion should see their error and convert to a God of love. But in the real world we all know that even under the best of situations six-billion people would have to annex one-billion people to their own ‘private island’. The logistics, the morality, the un-realistic, even impossible scope of such an event on world populations.

 

General Muhammad’s war plan for the whole world was and is quite simple. They are supposed to migrate into a country, bide your time, grow your communities throughout the host country and wait. Wait for your fellow soldiers of Allah to attack the country from the outside as then the plants are supposed to start and up-rising from the inside. Folks this pattern has been followed throughout north-Africa, the Persian Gulf and Europe for about 1,400 years now, folks they are very good at what they do. ISIS has helped show the strength of the fundamental movements in the ‘Arab World’. They along with many other hate groups are insisting on strict Sharia law be enforced everywhere on earth. I don’t know what to do about these horrible issues but the world is being forced to change because if the world that we all know and love doesn’t fight back hard on these huge issues, we wont have a country to walk on or breath in.

 

For those of you who are blind to these events can you not see the path of these Sunni groups like ISIS and Hamas taking total control of your town, of you, and every member of your family, forever! We must not forget the biggest minority within Islam are the Shiite folks. Yet by the articles I scan each day that the Shiite community make up about 20% of Islamic believers, the Sunni about the other 80%. Right now there are Shiite groups who are trying to stay more quiet than normal, could it be it is because ‘the West and Russia’ are bombing the Shiites enemy. Folks there are also many hate groups within the Shiite believers who want the exact same thing that the Sunni groups like ISIS want, total control, total power. I have heard this saying three times, once each from a young Palestinian, Pakistan man and a Saudi man ‘that the only thing lower than a dog is a Christian and the only thing lower than a Christian is a Jew’. The reason there will never be peace between the Jewish State of Israel and its Islamic neighbors is that so many of this religions (Islam) believers will never ever except a Jewish or a Christian State in ‘the Holy Land’. The rest of the world is now starting to taste a tiny taste of what the people of Israel have had to endure for most of their 70 year existence. A sleeping dragon has awakened in our world, now the question is who wins this battle? The Jewish people learned a long time ago that if you refuse to fight on the Sabbath, then you will die on the Sabbath. Just because you lay down your arms for a day or for a lifetime, if the ones who hate you are still shooting at you, you are going to have a very short lifetime. Just because Donald Trump comes off a bit befuddled about facts sometimes it doesn’t mean that he is wrong about everything all of the time, just most things, most of the time.

The Racism Of Groups Like ISIS

The Racism Of Groups Like ISIS

In fundamental Islam once whichever sect Sunni of Shiite are the only ones left on earth the few remaining non-Muslim Islamic believers will be the slaves of the pure (Islamist’s) and nothing more. That is why groups like the Black Muslim movement is so stupid. Islam is the largest participant in the slavery of black people in the whole world. If you are a believer in Islam and you are not a Muslim or a Persian then you are nothing short of being completely stupid and it will cost you your personal freedom and your life.

Starting A (6 Of God’s Days) Adventist Church?

Starting A (Six Of God’s Days) Adventist Church?

 

Good evening everyone, I ask each of you to be open-minded, patient and critical of this post as it is like no other post I have ever even considered doing. First of all it is not like I am anything that is more special that everyone else on this planet. I am not more important than you or anyone else, we are of all of equal value to our Creator. I don’t really like the term or thought that I am going to try to start “a Church” because Jesus is the owner of Christians Souls and bodies and “the Church” is “the Bride of Christ” which He will be collecting at “The Rapture” (second advent) so it (a new Church) is not new, Jesus is the Author and Owner of all Churches who worship Him. God’s Church was created when Jesus walked out of that burial chamber in 29 A.D.

I have studied many Christian Churches teachings in the 51-52 years that I have been studying the Bible and have not found any who even understand what the Scriptures are telling us. In my studies of these different teaching I have found that I mostly agree with the teaching of the Seventh Day Adventist Church over all of the other ones I have knowledge of. I did say “I mostly agree” because I do have some disagreements with a few of their teachings. I know that the biggest ‘neon flashing light’ is that they believe that God created this planet in six human days even though it is more than obvious that no such thing is said in Scripture anywhere. Do you remember what the Apostle Peter said in the book of Second Peter chapter 3, verse 8? Quote, (NRSV) “But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day”. This is really a simple issue of excepting reality, please think about this for a moment, every planet that circles our sun has a different measure of what a day is. Why does anyone still think along the terms of human days as if the time it takes Earth to rotate should qualify as a measure when eternity is the subject matter? What is time to God? How much time is eternity, can it be measured? Humans have a huge problem with ego’s and ignorance.

 

When a person Google’s the Seventh-Day Adventist Church beliefs you will come across what they refer to as “their 28 fundamental beliefs”. Number 6 is the one about their believing in the 6 human days of creation which we have already discussed. I believe that this ignorance on this one subject is the cause/reason why millions of people throughout the ages have laughed off Christianity as being total ignorance, at the cost of their own Souls. The next of their fundamental beliefs (#22) that I totally disagree with as saying the opposite of what the New Testament Scriptures tell us. Lines # 7 and #8 of their teachings says and I quote “…we are to adopt the most healthful diet possible and abstain from, the (unclean foods identified in the Scriptures). By Scripture this would only be true if you are a Jewish believer who does not believe that Jesus is/was the Christ thus following the ‘old law’ (Old Testament) that was given to the Lords people (Hebrews/Israel). With the resurrection of Jesus the ‘Old Law’ passed away and a “new covenant/New Testament” came into effect so no one is now bound to that law. Please consider what we are told in the book of Acts in chapter #10 verses 11 through 16, “He (the Apostle Peter) saw the heavens opened and something like a large sheet coming down, being lowered to the ground by its four corners. In it were all kinds of four-footed creatures and reptiles and birds of the air. Then he heard a voice saying “get up, Peter; kill and eat”. But Peter said “by no means, Lord;  for I have never eaten anything that is profane or unclean”. The voice said to him again, a second time, “What God has made clean you must not call profane”. This happened three times, and the thing was suddenly taken up to Heaven”. If God says that all the animals are now clean and we are instructed to use them for food if we are hungry then why does any church say otherwise.?

 

The last of these 28 beliefs that I have a problem with is about correctness with them on #27. Please read those 28 points as you read your Bible, there is a good chance that most people who call themselves Christians who have spent years studying the Scriptures will agree with most of these 28 points. Please understand that #27 which is talking about the millennium, the thousand-year reign of Christ after the Rapture. They teach that during that thousand years that the Devil and his Demons will have full total control and dominion of the earth but with no human beings on the planet during that time and that is just not correct by Scripture. To say this means that they do not understand what Armageddon is at all. The book of Revelation is really not very difficult to understand if you read it prayerfully many many times with a pure and unbiased mind and heart. Folks, Armageddon will be when the Devil, the Beast and the false prophet has waged all out war on Christians, at least those who refused to allow a Demonic government to place a computer chip in their hand, marking them as one of Satan’s followers, ‘the mark of the Devil’. Armageddon will be when Christ and His angels appear at The Rapture. This is when all the billions of people who have been fooled by the governments and their Demonic leaderships go to wage war against Christ Jesus and His angels. (Revelation 16:14) ( Revelation 19:19-21) (Revelation 20: 7-9) Demons will be cast straightway into the ‘lake of fire/Hell’ because they have already had their judgement day, leaving the “fooled” to be totally crushed like grapes in a wine-press. For all those who do not believe that Jesus is The Christ then they will all die a horrible death but this is nothing compared to after their judgement.

 

So, now, how does one start a new “church movement”? Please study those 28 points of the Seventh-Day Adventist and please study the Scriptures prayerfully that relate to what they are saying. I know of no ‘Church’ that teaches exactly what I believe to be the ‘Gospel’ Truth. A few are close, but not exactly. So my question to you, exactly how would I/you/we start a ‘6 of God’s Days’ Adventist Church? I guess that I would not mind (but I am guessing about that) getting people together here in east-central Kentucky to start a Church but I would need devoted caring intelligent honest Christian people around me to ‘run the Church business’. The reason is, I have no health, if we were able to start an honest Christian Congregation the ‘Church group’ would need Deacons, Elders, and people who had the physical means to maintain the building and grounds. If one thinks about starting up any type of venture, you realize that there is a lot to it and with my health, I can do very little. Remember, if one starts up a ‘Church’ it has always got to be totally centered on Jesus Christ, not the Minister for the meaning of Minister is Servant! The people can never allow a ‘Cult’ to form around a Minister, not ever!

 

This whole article is just conjecture as I do not expect anything to come about here where I live yet it would be nice if some places around the globe did start wanting to get back to the basics of love that is God’s teachings. It would be nice if this article is some small way helped nudge people into wanting to live and believe as the Scriptures of God speak to us to do. I know that physically I am 95-99% dead so really none of this article, this conjecture is about me, it is about all of you. I just want everyone to be saved once their life is over, and that does mean each and every one of you. Please take a few moments to leave comments on this issue, I would like to hear your thoughts, good or bad. I pray that God will bless you all, thank you for your time, Shalom.

Putting God First: I know I Haven’t Always

Putting God First: I know I Haven’t Always

 

Do you remember the commandment that says”thou shall not lie”? Do you personally believe that if you are asked at your judgement, did you put God first in your life that you can honestly look God in His eyes and say yes? If you can I honor you for I know that if I said such a thing it would be a lie and of course God knows the answers before He asks the questions. But can I ever say that I have put God first in anything, ever, can you? My answer to this version of the question would be yes, I believe that would be and honest answer? But, do I put God first in my daily life right now, everyday, any day? This is a question that can be very difficult to answer because it can and will vary by the things that we personally believe to be truth. There are some people who think that to be a “holy person” that they must spend their lives on their knees in front of a church altar in prayer while they are flogging themselves. Personally I do not believe this at all, but ones faith is and is supposed to be, a personal one with God. We all have different talents and abilities in physical matters and we have different talents in spiritual matters as well. Our own personal relationship with God is exactly that, our own personal relationship with Him. We will all be judged by how we preformed our daily lives. I cannot save you nor can I condemn you, this is a burden/cross that each person carries on their own each step, each breath, each heart beat of their own life.

 

When a person accept’s Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, is buried in baptism, then he/she is raised a new creature. Do you understand this meaning? You see when we accept Jesus as our personal Savior we are given the Spirit of God within us, it is this “Holy Spirit” that makes us a new creature, a new being. When we accept Jesus as our personal Savior we are no longer our own, we belong to God. But, do we act any different from everyone else who is “of the world”? If we are no different when we come up out of the water (different mind-set) all we really did was to get our self wet. God knows His own, when He calls His own, His own know His voice because God’s Spirit is “God within us” and yes, He does know His own voice. What this does mean though is that anyone who does not have the “Spirit of God” indwelling them when they/we die we will be condemned at the Judgement Seat of God. In our humans lives if we in our daily adventures do not keep God at the fore front of our decisions as in “what would Jesus do” we can not honestly expect great results in our daily lives to be showered upon us by God.

 

In my opinion I am never going to be “good enough” on my own to honestly be able to say “I deserve” for God to treat me great each day or to even protect me from the worlds evils each day. This is why I personally am so grateful for “God’s grace” because “my works” in my opinion, will never be perfect enough to suffice for my own salvation. We do not live under the “old law” (Old Testament) that the Jewish people were assigned by God about 4,000 years ago. Under the ‘Old law’ you could be saved by your works even if you had little faith. If a person followed the Ten Commandments there was a real good chance they would be safe when they died and went to their judgement before the Throne of God, as long as you were of the Royal Blood Line given from God to the Hebrew people. The House of Israel is still special to God but they lost their exclusiveness to salvation because of not following the teaching and commandments of their God so God through Jesus (The Christ, The Messiah, The Promised One)  made a path for all of us gentiles to obtain salvation also (New Testament).

 

Now back on track, do I put God first everyday of my life? Do I open my eyes in the mornings and the first thought (after addressing the need to pee) is to wash my hands and face and pray thanking our Creator for His grace and kindness? Do I thank God before each meal for the food and lodging? I have to admit that at times I have been slack in my thank you’s to God for all of His kindness and grace to me throughout this life time He has given me. How would you answer these questions if no one else was around to hear the answers? I know that I am not a perfect person and that I have committed many different sins in my life time, I know that on my own merits I would be condemned at my judgement. I know that only by Gods grace do I actually have a chance at salvation. I personally am very glad that the people of Israel 2-4,000 years ago fell short of their adherence to ‘The Law” given exclusively to them, if they had not messed up, you and I would have zero chance of salvation. Yes we are all know to others by the works that we do each day, good or bad. We are now all commanded to live by faith for without faith it is impossible to please God. If we truly do love God then we will follow His directions to love one another as ourselves. There is truth in the fact though that some people are never going to except the love of God because their hearts are filled with hate and ignorance. When we encounter such people we are to shake the dust of our feet off as a sign against them. Not everyone is going to be faithful to God in their daily walk of life, you and I, we must always be careful to live a life of faithfulness to God if we actually care about Him. Do I always put God first everyday, all day? All I can say is thank you Lord for your kindness and your grace to us sinners.

 

 

Humanity, Christianity and Islam

Humanity, Christianity and Islam

 

This letter to you today is my attempt to get folks to deeply consider the humanity crisis going on throughout Europe, but for now I am referring to the European countries that border the Mediterranean mostly. There is also the request by the Pope for all Catholic Parishes to take in one of these war refugee families. Not just Catholic people and not just towns that have Catholic Churches in them, but all people of every country had better look long and hard before excepting Islamic ideologies into their communities. We must all decide if we want any people, even nice nonviolent people coming into our local community that will absolutely bring their religious beliefs and life styles with them. This is not a race issue at all, it is a life or death issue to every citizen in every country, every town.

 

Here in America there is a bitter battle in the press, politics and on main street America about our porous borders especially along our border with our southern sister Mexico. The same open borders plague our northern border with our frozen sister Canada but the issue is more complicated, it is also an economic, security, jobs, taxes, language barriers, race, crime and drugs issues. It is poorer people in general who are trying to get into America from the south while there is no such rush from Canada because they have and infrastructure which creates jobs while most of the countries to our south do not. The issues southern Europeans are facing is many, including all of the ones I just mentioned that America is having.

 

The biggest issue on the board right now for the whole world to address is how to get these wars stopped as soon as possible so that people can quit fleeing their war-torn homelands. Hopefully then they can start a migration of these believers in Islam back to their home countries so that they can live under Islamic law in their own countries there if they want it so badly, not in Paris Texas, London Kentucky or Moscow Ohio. Most polls taken in Islamic countries show that 90-92% of the people polled said they did want Sharia to be the law in not only their own country but in all countries. In Islam since the religion began in about 630 A.D. there have been two main sides in Islam and for almost 1,400 years now the two have been trying to kill all of the other clan, as well as everyone else on earth. The Shiite and the Sunni both want the same hatred to be forced on everyone on earth or they are supposed to kill you if you refuse to not just convert to Islam, but to be strictly adherent to its teachings (Sharia Law).

 

Okay Christians now we have a dilemma on our hands. I do mean the term Christian to all the people on the planet who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. The teachings of Jesus tell us to be kind even to those who hate us. The world has a problem with this Islamic migration and this is something that the world must stop quickly. We as Christians are supposed to help these people out if we can, help with such things as food, shelter and water. We are not obligated to allow the teachings of those who only wish us all dead to be spread like the poison Islam is among our neighborhoods. All this accomplishes by letting in a custom that is not only completely different from any other that you have most likely ever come across. Only an idiot would allow this ideology to move in next door to them, worse yet the spare bedroom. Islam is not a harmless peace-loving religion no matter what the goof ball George W. Bush gives lip service to.

 

Reality is that terrorism is not going to stop because hate is not going to ever stop, nor is ignorance. Just as Jesus said that He hates the sin but He loves the sinner, I do not want any violence toward anyone. Islam is not the only danger to the whole civilized world but it is the largest issue facing the world today. I wish no harm to anyone who believes that Allah is God, I only hope that they live long enough to see the error of their teachings and convert to the love of Jesus instead of the hate of Allah.

 

Back about 7 years of so ago when the ‘Arab Spring’ started there was a lot of hope in the Arab world that they would be able to shake off the Dictators that had been ruling them and setting up more ‘free’ societies. Yet when the people overthrew their Tyrants they didn’t get the freedoms that they had hoped for. Even though the majority of their populations are believers of Islam many hoped that they could have democracies where they themselves could vote in their Leaders, they should have known better. What they got was feud’s between differing fundamentalists Islamic Sects and Tribal warfare, not freedom. Today you have many countries within the ‘Islamic World’ that are totally ‘lawless’ like Libya, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and huge parts of Egypt. This does not take in the reality that is a living Hell for the people who are trying to survive in places like Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon (because of Hezbollah) the West Bank and the Gaza Strip (because of Hamas), Afghanistan and Pakistan. In the Middle-East almost all of the more ‘stable’ living conditions are in countries with Royal Families ruling them. I can not blame anyone who lives in an Islamic country for trying to escape to a ‘Western’ civilization yet the reality is if they migrate to the West, they want to then set up Islamic communities. If these people want to do that, then they need to stay in their home countries and deal with their own ‘religion’ caused disasters there instead of bringing it with them to another country. One of the things that all of Europe needs to do is now that the war in Syria is about over these countries need to deport all of these immigrants back to their homeland as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. The first that should be deported should be the males ages 17 -65 who can go back to their homeland and start rebuilding their homes and infrastructures so that they can then welcome home their wives and children.

 

Maybe Russia, China, Europe and the U.S. should work together to eliminate such worldwide threats together and completely. O, but then that would create the (holy war/jihad) that crazy people like the “Supreme Ruler” of the Islamic State of Iran crave. Here is another thought for you though right now, the Islamic hoards are crushing the economies and neighborhoods of Europe. How they (Europe) handles this crisis will depend on if the Europe that we have known for six-hundred of so odd year’s stands as we know it or crumbles into a constant war zone. Another reality is that this Islamic hate filled doctrines already has 18 million foot soldiers living in the U.S. so we, the U.S. are by no means exempt from their Jihad. This hatred is sad and sickening but never the less, it is reality folks, for everyone on earth.

Belgium ends Saudi lease of country’s largest mosque over radicalism concerns

Belgium’s government has ended Saudi Arabia’s lease on the Grand Mosque of Brussels over fears the house of worship was being used to promote radical agendas, Reuters reported Friday.

“The concession will be terminated immediately … in order to put an end to foreign interference in the way Islam is taught in Belgium,” the government said.

The mosque, Belgium’s largest, was leased to the Saudis in 1969 for 99 years without charge as part of a deal for cheaper oil.

But with growing concern over Islamic extremism in the continent, and reports of possible radical teachings and segregationist attitudes at the institution, Belgian leaders have in recent months sought to end its foreign ties.

“In this way we are tackling Salafist, violent extremist influences,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon tweeted.

The mosque will henceforth be administered locally.

“From now on, the mosque will have to establish a lasting relation with the Belgian authorities, while respecting the laws and the traditions of our country, which convey a tolerant vision of Islam,” Justice Minister Koen Geens said.

Europe has seen increased scrutiny of mosques and their teachings following an uptick in attacks by Islamists in recent years. Houses of worship have been shuttered in France, the UK and Germany, among others.

The Matches Are Lit, The World Is Burning

The Matches Are Lit, The World Is Burning

 

What is it that we westerners do not get about what the rest of the world is experiencing around us? Do we really think that our children will live in a world that is safer than the world we grew up in? If you would, please lend me your ear for a few moments. Hopefully the things you read will help to broaden your understanding as to why I chose the title that I have for this conversation with you.

 

Do you remember the so-called “Arab Spring” of a few years ago? O what a beautiful thing this could have been for this region of the world plus the vibrations it could have caused around the world, this shaking off of dictators. But the people of the region have learned it seems that a military strong man is the only way to keep other religion based dictators from taking their place. Back during the first Gulf War than American President George H.W. Bush knew the importance of keeping the dictator in Iraq in power. It seems that his son George W when he took power of the Office had not learned at his dads feet, or, was it ego that made him make up a story so he could attack Iraq and remove Saddam? There are many American people who I have come across who believe that “we the people” are paying fat pensions to at least three international war criminals (President, V.P., Secretary of Defense). Criminal or not because of their actions the whole world is crawling with the Asps they helped unleash on all of humanity.

 

In this real world that hopefully the politicians will soon join us in, it does not matter if you are a republican, democrat, independent (like me), or none of the above. Hopefully soon partisan party politics can be shelved and they and the national media outlets can become more concerned about current imminent physical threats to our people. This threat is to all of our non-strict Muslim cultures, to their property, their religions, and their very lives. There are tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of fellow brothers and sisters who because of being misguided who simply want you to get off of the face of the earth, “their earth”. A life where only loyal followers of Allah will be allowed to live a non-slave life, if you are allowed to live at all, doesn’t that sound exciting? America our location on the globe no longer gives us an immunity from other continents griefs. When it comes to ideologies land or water give us very little protection any longer.

 

By mans laws here in the States any person can choose to be of any faith they wish, or of no faith system at all. Mans laws write in a few laws governing people’s physical safety though that should be a no brainer, besides what actual religion would condone attacking or killing other people? Then these laws of civil society for all must be enforced if a humane society itself is going to be able to exist, or it will be erased.

 

Within the religion of Islam are two main sects, the Sunni, and the Shiite. These two sects have existed on this planet for almost 1,400 years now, and it seems that they have hated each other right from their earliest roots 1,400 years ago. For the few year’s a large Sunni militia called ISIS by western media has murdered and plundered their way into power covering hundreds of miles of land belonging to two adjoining Shiite nations, Syria and Iraq. ISIS is like several other high-profile Sunni groups like Boko Haram, and al-Qaeda in that they want to bring strict Islamic law to the middle-east, then the world. Their difference by what we hear in the West is that ISIS is the most violent and most strict toward adherence to Islamic fundamentalist theology, Sunni theology.

 

By what I have heard and read from the media throughout the years is that within Islam the Sunni are about 80% and the Shiite the other 20% of the Islamic faith. So when you take into account the hatred between these two groups is it any wonder why the Mullahs in Iran want the ability to nuke other nations?They can say it is a defensive weapon though knowing very well that it is a preemptive strike weapon also. Then it comes down to a trust factor, or a stupidity factor, how much you are willing to trust their “Supreme Ruler”  and others just like him with the lives of everyone on earth?

 

For those of you who don’t already know it the word Islam by definition means submission, as in absolute submission to the will of Allah. I have another question for everyone, what kind of religion is it that tells its followers to kill everyone who will not obey? Why would anyone ever listen to a “prophet” who orders either worldwide conversion, or worldwide extermination? Here in the States we have as a nation been blessed, lucky, and just plain good at shutting down larger terror cells who wished to kill us and our families. But folks there are supposed to be at least 18 million Islamic believers inside our borders with us. If only 1% of this population is a true believer of Islamic teachings that equals 180,000 soldiers implanted waiting on their orders to kill as many infidels (non-believers) as they possibly can. America, when they strike, not if, what are you going to do? Are you going to fall apart and burn into ashes? Only time will tell, or, a person could simply read the play book on-line if you are not allowed a paper copy, it’s called the Bible! For those who don’t understand it, the end times are spelled out very well in its last book, the book of Revelation. The human race has a simple choice of living and possibly dying for the winner or, living for a short time but in slavery to the biggest loser in the history of all eternity.

 

The matches are lit, for now several large Islamic hate groups are fighting each other all over the Middle-East in an attempt to kill each other. If all of those efforts to kill each other were being directed at western targets as they soon will be, what then? If the two main Islamic factions were to quit fighting among themselves they would then join forces in their hatred for everything and everyone that is not Islamic. Every nation, every people on earth, you, your culture, your religion, your country, you are currently being measured for bagging. America (and every other nation on earth), folks, life is about to change more rapidly toward the negative than any sane person could ever want. The question is simple, are we going to fold as a culture, and as a Nation, when more horrible things start happening on our soil? By these horrible things I do mean markets and grocery stores being blown up, bridges blowing up, churches being shot up and our school children being massacred live on CNN? This is the reality that the whole world is facing, we as a people must all decide how we are going to react to this reality when it comes busting into our own homes, because folks, it is coming, soon!
