We helped build these platforms when we joined and shared with family and friends. We helped make some people super rich and powerful and now they turn and hide behind our misplaced notion that they have the freedom to promote or demote whatever they feel free to do.
Do you see what I see? (ignore the color highlight). This is a Google search.
Sneaky sneaky sneaky they are.
This is why I’ve sought out other search engines and use them. It is inconvenient, but still easier than getting in the car and going to the library and opening periodicals and searching through index cards.
Well, that is an understatement. 27 of my 53 saved videos on Zionism have been removed. I guess the bright side is it will take me half the time now to get to the bottom of the truth about Zionism.
Do you understand the impact of this? Let’s say you were dying of cancer and you were collecting information on it and came back to work your way through your stack of stuff and now it was only half as high. Who should decide whether what is missing is important or not?
God’s Word provides a blueprint for rebuilding a nation that assists in overcoming the vices of mice and men. In part 1 of this study 6 sins are exposed that tear nations apart. And then in part 2 we see the glue that holds them together.
Just like you cannot see the glory of the stars without the darkness of the night, so you cannot experience the liberating power of mercy without the thunderous sound of the gavel. You will see and hear about both in this exploration of Isaiah 5-6 by the gifted teacher and pastor John MacArthur.
1 Cor 10:6 Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved.
1 Cor 10:11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
It is heartbreaking to see these people “resort to idols and ghosts of the dead.” It is even more troubling to know Who is behind it!
This video describes disturbing conditions in Venezuela and puts skin on the oracle given to Isaiah to announce, not to Israel, but to Egypt. You could easily substitute Venezuela or United States or any country in place of the forewarning given to Egypt because God is no respecter of people or nations and as Paul observed with other such historical events, we look at these to find things to avoid.
If the oracle is to be believed, if it is to teach us and instruct us, then clearly God is in our midst for these events happen all around us. Consider the ways He has manifested Himself. It makes me tremble. Some He holds back, others He does not.
Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud and is about to come to Egypt;
The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence,
And the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them.
2 “So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians;
And they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor,
City against city and kingdom against kingdom.
3 “Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be demoralized within them;
And I will confound their strategy,
So that they will resort to idols and ghosts of the dead
And to mediums and spiritists.
4 “Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel master,
And a mighty king will rule over them,” declares the Lord God of hosts.
God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts
God gave them over to degrading passions
God gave them over to a depraved mind
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
It has been around for a long time. It is now finally recognized.
The Deep State of America has created a Perpetual Motion Killing Machine that lines the pockets of those in the military industrial financial media complex. The Deep State creates the most emotionally charged problems as they can and relies on unsuspecting people to solve it. The people are then shielded from the damage they inflict upon others so they continue to give, give, and give to keep this Killing Machine in motion. I remember when the government told the media to censor the return of the caskets of our soldiers.
Angela Keaton, the founder of Antiwar.com, said that ISIS is “entirely a creation of the United States’ behavior in Iraq.”
“That’s how we got to where we are, because of war, because of occupation, because of torture,” Keaton said. “The United States government completely destabilized and wrecked Iraq. They caused it to fail miserably and that is entirely the fault of the United States government. There is no one else to blame.”
How are we to make sense out of all this? Is it true? Before ISIS there was this video called The Power of Nightmares.
“In the past, politicians promised to create a better world. They had different ways of achieving this. But their power and authority came from the optimistic visions they offered to their people. Those dreams failed. And today, people have lost faith in ideologies. Increasingly, politicians are seen simply as managers of public life. But now, they have discovered a new role that restores their power and authority. Instead of delivering dreams, politicians now promise to protect us from nightmares. They say that they will rescue us from dreadful dangers that we cannot see and do not understand.”
Adam Curtis put together a series of 3 videos to help us understand how this machine runs. I highly recommend watching them. Until we understand how we are being manipulated we will continue to give our money (through taxation), our sons and daughters, and our prayers to this ungodly Satanic machine.
Every Sunday morning for the past 38 years I have had this anticipation, this flame of fire that never grows cold. It causes me to rise early to go and meet the One who made me. The Psalms, the language of the heart, states it plainly.
O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.
Some look at the swamp, smell the swamp, and try to climb away from the swamp in vain. Others see the light, make their way over to the light, and begin to climb that holy hill.
God, I pray this day You would send out Your light and Your truth to lead and guide us back to You.
Some of my guiding principles to help understand who I am.
Guiding Principles for My Church
…a voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'make straight the way of the Lord…
~ John 1:23
...the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.
~ 1 Tim 3:15
He who gives attention to the word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
~ Prov 16:20
Write, for these words are faithful and true!
~ Rev 21:5
Guiding Principles for My Government
"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty."
~ Thomas Jefferson
"Striving for justice is one of life’s greatest gratifications. In fact, outside of the family, it is the greatest gratification. Without justice, there’s no such thing as liberty and freedom, there’s no such thing as fulfilling life’s possibilities."
~ Ralph Nadar
Guiding Principles for My Family
For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring upon [him] what He has spoken about him.
~ Genesis 18:19
Guiding Principles for My Business
I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.
~ Napoleon Hill
Guiding Principles for My Me
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Eph 5:15-16
Focusing on our eternal inheritance is key to maintaining a proper perspective on Christ’s sufficiency, especially when you’re in the midst of difficult circumstances. That’s not always easy because we’re prone toward selfishness and desiring instant gratification. Advertising fuels that mentality by telling us we can have all we want—and we can have it right […]
Where did Christians ever get the notion that they need anything other than Christ? Is He somehow inadequate? Is His gift of salvation somehow deficient? Certainly not. We are children of God, joint heirs with Christ, and therefore beneficiaries of a richer legacy than the human mind could ever comprehend: “We are children of God, […]
Homer and Langley Collyer were sons of a respected New York doctor. Both studied at Columbia University—Homer earned his degree in law, and Langley became an accomplished engineer and concert pianist. When their parents both died in the 1920s, the brothers inherited the family home and estate. The two men—both bachelors—were now financially secure. But […]
A friend once asked me, “What would it take for you to renounce Christianity?” I pondered the question for a moment before responding, “Bring me a sinless man.” And with that, the conversation came to an abrupt halt. Even unbelievers know there’s no such thing as a sinless man. We all inherently understand what the […]
By most modern metrics of church growth, Paul’s sermon on Mars Hill could easily be deemed ineffective and unfruitful. Acts 17:34 names only two converts from the gathering he drew in Athens—Dionysius and a woman named Damaris. That small harvest somehow looks less spectacular than the revivals Paul saw in Antioch or Thessalonica. But Paul […]
Idolatry is the product of rebellion, not confusion. While hearts and minds darkened by sin can’t find God on their own apart from His Word, the apostle Paul makes it clear that the root of idolatry is man’s rejection of creation’s testimony to its Creator. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against […]
The apostle Paul’s sermon on Mars’ Hill (Acts 17:16–33) has been exploited endlessly by evangelistic innovators and missionary methodologists in recent decades. The acute cultural awareness Paul displayed in his preaching has been used to validate everything from worldliness (under the guise of contextualization) to the appreciative study of other religions. But careful examination of […]
I recently said in an interview that, as a Christian preacher, “My goal is to offend everyone.” That’s not an argument for boorish behavior in the pulpit. The gospel isn’t adorned by anti-social evangelists or cantankerous Christians. God’s people should strive to be polite, winsome, and well-mannered in dealing with the world. Rather, my point […]
