By Dick Carmack
As we look about us and mourn the condition of the world we wonder how we got here. As such it might prove profitable to consider that maybe it’s not entirely the fault of the conspirators who want to be the rulers of the world, but might be our own fault, our own choices, that we see our civilization going down the tubes.
After all, isn’t it the American Way to see an opportunity and to step in and take advantage of it? That’s what the immoral, utterly depraved satanic crowd trying to be our “24/7 Nannys and Dictators” have done. They saw a people who had become so spoiled that they were just begging for a strong man to come along and take charge and so they simply stepped in and took charge.
The following is attributed to Paul-Henri Spaak (1899-1972); former Premier of Belgium; early planner of The European Common Market; Secretary of NATO"
 "What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the alliances (allegiance?) of all people and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him." [1]
Did Spaak really say that? It doesn’t matter because there’s enough truth in it to make the point even if it’s just a lie. We have become a nation of over-fed, rotten-mouthed spoiled wimps who want to be pampered in our every whim. We rise up in wrath if we don’t get our way and will burn and destroy if crossed. But it wasn’t always that way.
We constantly hear of the “Greatest Generation” and there is much truth in that also. The men and women who fought WW2 came out of a culture that was patriotic, strong, durable, energetic, incredibly ingenious and afraid of nothing. How did they get that way? To answer that in full would require several long books and I’m not qualified to write even one. There is one aspect however that stands out and one I am qualified to speak on, “Dad Was Boss.”
I, like many readers, grew up in the days before and during WW2 when the culture of those days tolerated little of what passes for normality today. Dad was a farmer, father of 12 children (8 boys and 4 girls) and he didn’t have time for rebellion in his family. He was boss. The decisions were as fair as he could make them. They were swift and they stood, there was no appeal. It seemed like I got a spanking at least once every day and am sure there were many days when the corporal punishment was multiple and just. There were many things not to touch, not to do and above all not to say. In other words, morality was not an option it was mandatory.
Anything even approaching obscenity was quickly dealt with. One incident (that will seem silly to many modern folks) illustrates the point. There was a rule on our farm that nobody called anyone else “names.” “Horse-head” stands out in my mind. My brother Jack enticed me by saying, “Dick, if you’ll stand up at the barn door and call me a horse-head I’ll give you a nickel.”
Satan get behind me, that was just too great a temptation and so I did. It was timed by Jack of course so that Dad would be sure to hear. I spoke, Dad moved and justice followed quickly “behind.” During the course of the remedial action it came out that Jack owed me a nickel. Payment was duly enforced and the lesson for all was from then on etched in our collective memory.
What would happen today? Surely you jest. No one would even notice. Our language has deteriorated to the point that if there are not at least a few “hells” and “damns” in every sentence you are looked at like a drunk in church.
It is depressing to read then, “moral, conservative and enlightened” commentary that is laced with language that would have earned you a severe whipping and lack of any privilege for at least three months 50 years ago, but today is passed over without a whimper of protest. And, as most know, it’s not just hells and damns. The adjectives are much more graphic, some in so-called “conservative” writings that would make a sailor blush.
It saddens us to see young, moral, conservative authors using obscenities in their otherwise useful writings. They have unwittingly picked up the very tools that have been designed to destroy us and are using the weapons of the enemy on ourselves. It’s much like buying a boy a 22 rifle and telling him, “Go ahead and shoot yourself, but not anyone else.” As Pogo said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”
Why has our communication deteriorated to the point that if you are trying to raise moral children you have to pre-read “conservative” or sometimes “Christian” commentary to avoid soaking their young minds in garbage? We need Dad back in charge. He lived in a generation that knew instinctively “bad manners corrupteth communication.”
Col 3:8 ¶ But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
At least one of the reasons the “Greatest Generation” was great, was because ladies were always shown respect, gentlemen stood up when a lady entered the room and barnyard speech was not allowed in the house. Dad always tipped his hat when meeting a lady. How long since you have seen that? Another line of no return was sassing, or talking back to Mother. If you did, you were usually reminded with,
“We’ll just wait till your Dad gets home.”
Nowadays, mothers and fathers are routinely cursed in public by their children and if you were to dare to protest or correct it, you would be arrested for “Child Abuse.”
The cities are much worse off than most rural areas. I remember a visit to Dallas in the 1980s (30 years after three years in the Army) when I heard language that I never heard before, spilling out of the mouth of an attractive (till then) young (lady?) in a public place. I’m sure there are readers who are scratching their heads and wondering, “Where has this guy been all his life?” That’s the point. We live (and have lived) in two different worlds. My world of moral restraint was a much better world than this present world that seems to be in a contest with itself to see who can hit bottom first.
To careless mouthed conservatives: Do you want to see America become great again? Examine your own behavior first and then tell us where we went wrong. Then take it upon yourself to see to it that in your family at least, morality will once again become mandatory, not a quaint relic of yesteryear.
Col 4:6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.



Subject: Two Pots
A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one-and-a-half pots full of water to his house.
Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect for which it was made.
But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I'm ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all this work, and
you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.
The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I've always known about your flaw, and I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you've watered them.
For two years I've been able to pick these beautiful flowers to Decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."
Moral: Each of us has our own unique flaws. We're all cracked pots, but it's the cracks and flaws we each have that made our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You've just got to take each person for what they are, and look for the good in them. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

Thank you to all my crackpot friends !!

Lunch Down at the Char-Broiled and Soul-Seared Inn



By Dick Carmack

The Devil and “Most Senior Demon Honorable Screwtape” were having a lunch of “Broiled Jr. Devil” (those that had messed up) with dessert of frozen bureaucrat. They also had table guests from the CIA, NSA, FBI and the White House, all of whom knew all about the mega-data collection processes called “facebook, twitter etc…” That’s the internet system that has been set up to build dossiers (info files) on every living person on earth, so in case of need, it would all be there in black and white.

Screwtape, sweating profusely, screwed up his courage and said, “Sir.”

“What is it Skull and Bones?” the Devil asked.

“Sir.” He ventured again, half-afraid he would be eaten for lunch tomorrow after the news he had to deliver,

“Sir, we have a problem. It seems things have not gone according to plan.”

“What are you under earth are you possibly talking about?” asked Satan.

“Well Sir, you are aware of our plan to destroy souls via “facebook, twitter” etc…., well Sir, it seems to have backfired.”

James Clapper and FBI Director Comer almost choked on their “leg of demon.”

“WHAT? Tell me Screwtape, and make it short and accurate! Do you hear me?”

“Yesl Sir, it seems all the real Christians that we thought we had trapped, have taken a pledge to not post any more messages on facebook, twitter or ANY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA SITE, unless they also say “I pray God will be able to Bless You’ and quote at least ONE verse of Scripture!”

Now the Devil choked. He threw down his fork and threatened to order nine demons to grab Screwtape and throw him as close as possible to the Pending Lake of Fire that was waiting out back!

“How under earth did you let this happen???  Tell me, you miserable little piece of cinder-to-be! WHY DIDN’T YOU STOP IT?” Did you say ALL of the Christians?”

“NO SIR! Just those who are real, and not just pretending to be Christians!”

“It seems some fanatics out there in New Mexico were the first ones to take the PLEDGE and now millions and millions of them are doing it! Our prize project is being flooded with ‘the Knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ!’ And there’s not a thing we can do about it except send out more demons to sit on their shoulders and whisper, “Don’t do that! Don’t do that! It’ll make you look like a fanatic and your ‘friends’ will laugh at you! Don’t do that!”

“Every last one of them (the hated Christians) have pledged,

“LORD give me_______ __________ the courage to stand up for You. Remind me dear Lord, that every time I post ANYTHING on Social Media to always say ‘I pray God will be able to Bless You’ and ALWAYS post at least one verse of Scripture!”

“We have tried ridicule by ‘friends’ that don’t believe, but it looks like not even that is working. BUT I HAVE A PLAN! Please don’t throw me near the Pending Lake of Fire….!”

“What’s your plan???” Screamed Lucifer. ‘Tell me if you can, you miserable little scoop of ashes!’”

“Sir!” trembled Screwtape, “The only solution is to shut it all down and come up with something else. Yes, I know Mark Zuckerberg and the others will be disappointed but there are more out there that will do our bidding.”

Satan held his head in his hands and lamented with flaming hot tears,

“My greatest brain-storm tuned against me! Who would have thought the very tool I planned to use to take over the world and keep all of them away from Jesus, will now be used against me? Curses! Curses! Curses! Laments, Laments, Laments!”

Clapper, Comer and the other appointed trolls and all the “mainstream media” present fainted dead away, as the “legs of demon” landed on the hot coals. Ninety-nine demons were instantly sent to haul the “smoking big-shots” all out and deposit them out back near the hot pond. As that happened, a terrible moan was heard rising from the Prince of Darkness, pleading,

“Somebody, somebody, please, please help me, please, I’m having heat-stroke.”


LORD give me_______ __________ the courage to stand up for You. Remind me dear Lord, that every time I post ANYTHING on Social Media to always say ‘I pray God will be able to Bless You’ and ALWAYS post at least one verse of Scripture!”

Pr 22:1 ¶ A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

The ONLY unpardonable sin?




Pr 18:13 ¶ He that answereth a matter before he heareth it,                                           it is folly and shame unto him.[1]
By Dick Carmack
(Please note where emphasis is added to Scripture, underlining, italicizing, bold, etc.
It has all been added by the author and is not in the original.)
Ro 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
1Jo 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
Mt 12:31,32; and, the same teaching is found in Mr 3:28-29; and in Lu 12:10. This is the unpardonable sin. Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. 
Mt 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
“Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is regarded by some as a continued and obstinate rejection of the gospel, and hence is an unpardonable sin, simply because as long as a sinner remains in unbelief he voluntarily excludes himself from pardon. Others regard the expression as designating the sin of attributing to the power of Satan those miracles which Christ performed, or generally those works which are the result of the Spirit's agency.”[2]
You can curse Christ and be forgiven, you can rail against God the Father and be forgiven, but if you speak against the Holy Spirit, that's it.
There are three distinct persons of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. As the first two persons of the Trinity have special attributes, so does also the Holy Ghost (Spirit).
But, there is another passage of Scripture that at first glance seems to contradict the Gospel accounts of only blasphemy of the Holy Ghost being unpardonable;
Re 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
This clearly teaches the sin of adding to and taking away from Scripture is also unpardonable because if you do that your name will be taken out of the Book of Life. We recommend an article by Paul Benson[3] where he applies Revelation 22 teaching to the pre-trib rapture teaching. As we read and considered Mr. Benson’s article we finally saw a correlation between Rev 22:18,19 and Mt 12:31,32 where the Spirit speaks of the unpardonable sin. At first glance they seem contradictory but actually complement each other.
We see the Spirit wrote the Bible through men.
2Pe 1:16-21 ¶ For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. …
2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
In the passage given we have Jesus (Vs. 16), God the Father (Vs 17), and the Holy Ghost (Vss 19-21) who moved men to write the Scripture.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
I emphasize ALL Scripture because many choose the Word like they would choose what to eat in a cafeteria, “I’ll have some of this, but I don’t like that so I’ll just pass it by.” That approach to Scripture contains a deadly seed, which we believe can lead to a person’s name being taken out of the book of life. If the reader believes that is not possible he should consider what Moses pleaded to God,
Ex 32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
And God replied,
Ex 32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
“That’s just Old Testament and doesn’t apply to us!” Oh no? What does Paul say in Romans?
Ro 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
We can therefore conclude, if the “deeds” of man include the changing, taking away from, adding to Scripture they are in very deep trouble, as God said, “…him will I blot out of my book.(Ex 32:33)”
Who wrote Scripture?
1Pe 1:10 ¶ Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
The prophets wrote the Bible as they were moved by the Holy Spirit so the resulting Scripture was not of the prophet (though it might have his style) but of God Himself.
2Sa 23:2 The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.
Lu 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: (All emphasis added)
So, logically, if we mess with (change) Scripture (add to it or take away from it), we are literally playing with fire, because in so doing we are blaspheming the Holy Ghost because He is the author of Scripture. Where do you get that? One place is,
Ac 13:45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
Paul (instructed by the Holy Ghost) was the major author of New Testament Scripture. So when the Jews contradicted his teachings, challenging or changing the Scripture he had written or used they considered Paul’s words blaspheming, but in actuality they were the blasphemers because they were using words and teachings that were not in the original manuscripts. Indeed, the Pharisees were famous for formulating rules of behavior that were not Scriptural.  When a man changes Scripture from the original writings, for any reason, he is rejecting the Scripture and the Spirit that wrote it that used men as the pen. Therefore, rejecting or adding to Scripture is blasphemy against God.
I want to explain now the connection I see between Mat 12 and the Revelation 22 teaching and how they mix.
In the denomination in which I was saved (Independent Fundamental Baptist), their basic position was “A continued rejection of the Word,” thus not getting saved, meant I was thus condemned forever.” But, I have recently had a new point of view explained that puts my earlier view at risk.
My teachers held (hold) to the doctrine of "eternal security, once saved, always saved.” Thus if one backslides into sin it is explained as, "He was never really saved." Eternal life is certainly taught in both the Old and New Testaments, so let’s look at life eternal. Yes, it is taught in both the Old and New Testaments,
Da 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Isa 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
Mt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Other devout Christians believe you can lose your salvation. Some soften the teaching by calling it a “fall from grace.” Some believe you can be saved, backslide and lose it, and be saved again. Who’s right? Can you lose your salvation? Mt 12 clearly teaches you can lose life with God for the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. Rev 22 clearly teaches you can lose it for the sin of adding to or taking away from Scripture. We must admit then in those two cases at least, you can definitely lose your salvation. But are there other cases?
If changing Scripture (rejecting the written Word and substituting something else) is blasphemy, then are those folks in danger of losing their salvation? If I read the Scripture accurately they have apparently blasphemed the Holy Spirit by rejecting portions (or words) of Scripture and substituting their own views. We rightly compare Scripture with Scripture to establish the truth of a teaching. So far, I have not seen a comparison between Mt. 12 and Rev 22 made. Is the comparison valid or invalid? Be careful, you may be either adding unto, or taking away from the Word!
Here is where I need the help of those who are more skilled in the Word than me.
If I read the above Scripture correctly, because the Holy Ghost wrote the Bible using men as the instrument, the two seemingly separate passages Mt 12 and Rev 22 are actually hinged together.
In other words if we add to or take away from Scripture we have blasphemed the Holy Spirit, thus falling under the curse of Mt 12.
If that is correct it should throw up a very large RED flag for any “appointed” or self-appointed Bible translator unless he goes back to the oldest extant manuscripts and translates directly from them! Be careful not to add in personal bias or views of learned men, or give them equal weight with Scripture just because they are considered to be great expositors of the Bible (C.I. Scofield’s Reference Bible comes to mind)!
That puts possibly several so-called Bibles at risk but may exclude paraphrases as they probably make it clear it is a paraphrase and not a translation. I don’t know about the last sentence because I don’t own a paraphrase and am not interested in acquiring one.
The last and logical step: A recent writing[4] by Paul Benson applies Rev 22 to a question that crops up again and again nowadays, “When does the ‘rapture’ occur?” This writer maintains the “rapture” English for Greek the “catching away,” has been used incorrectly in the Word. Let me explain:
Regarding 1st Thes 4:13-17, the phrase “shall be ‘caught up’ <harpazo>” is certainly there in verse 17 and yes it is describing “seizing, plucking, pulling and taking by force.” The occurrence of the phrase and its definition is not in dispute. What is in dispute is that a “pre-second coming” which is required for a pre-trib rapture has been ADDED UNTO the Scriptural description of the resurrection of the dead and the gathering of the living saints!
In the Scripture quoted there is absolutely no mention of a “pre-second coming” or a “pre-rapture” event. In fact there is no mention of anything except the one event! Christ is going to return to gather His righteous ones (Saints); old and new, dead and alive. No adding unto, allowed!
The pre-trib teaching has been added unto the Word and believed by millions because of a very complex set of reasons. Some fear the coming great tribulation and believe this gives them an out, “Not to worry, we’ll be gone!” Some are convinced of the pre-trib position because that’s what they have been taught and have never really studied it. They are also often the ones who react as by rote and usually vehemently defend the position, mostly with hot air. Some attempt to prove how learned they are in God’s Word by showing the dumbbells if they will just become Christians they have bought a “soon coming” ticket destination of heaven with no detours. That opens up another can of worms called “easy believism,” but will have to be discussed at another time. Others, perhaps the majority, have studied the verses they have been taught point to a pre-trib position and having done so, conclude they can indeed believe a circumstantial case and they therefore adopt it as their own.
But, no one can point to a single definitive passage that plainly states a pre-trib rapture will occur! If they are honest they have to admit the case for that position is built by crafting several seemingly unrelated verses together until they make the case for what they want. Along with the “rapture” a “pre-second coming of Christ” is required. Those that teach that, explain it as “The second Coming in two stages.” That teaching however is nowhere to be found in the Bible. A lawyer or a judge would call the pre-trib rapture position a “circumstantial case.”
“But!” you say, “When we rise to meet Him in the air (17)” doesn’t that mean He comes to rapture us and takes us to heaven for the marriage supper of the lamb?” I reply, “What does it say?It says we rise to meet Him in the air, much like we would see a neighbor coming down the road and when we would walk out to meet him we then walk together. Does it mean we both will then turn around and go back to where he came from or more likely, wouldn’t it would mean we both then proceed on down to my house where he was headed in the first place? All the text really says is that from that point on, “…and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
On the other hand, if we don’t buy the pre-trib hypothesis, the case for a simultaneous resurrection of the dead and a catching away of living Saints is taught in 1st Thess 4:13-17. Now consider that the resurrection occurring AFTER the great tribulation is clearly taught in Mt 24:29-31 (also Mk 13:24-27, Luke 21:27,28).
Mt 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
The Matthew passage which clearly teaches a 2nd Coming of Christ to get his church (both living and dead) is explained away by pre-tribbers as applying only to the Jews “because they are the elect!” and to those Saints who are saved later during the great tribulation. But that cannot be correct because in the first 31 verses of that chapter (Mt 24) alone are at least 15 references to either Christ or His followers (the church). There are a score of plain references to Christians such as the one having Christ coming in the clouds with great glory (Vs. 27). If we do a word study of the elect, instead of being the Jews, out of 20 mentions there are only 4 clear references to the Jews, 12 clear references to Christians and 4 that are debatable.[5]
Indeed, this chapter (Mt 24) in particular was the genesis of my journey away from the pre-trib position. I remember going to the preacher after the sermon and asking, “Doesn’t that chapter apply to us Christians?” “No,” he replied “That’s the Jews, the Christians have been raptured.” “Where does it say that?” I asked as a young Christian, “The Christians have been raptured, it’s in 1st Thess, We’ll discuss it some other time.” He replied. End of conversation.
Another plain teaching of Christ returning to gather His Saints both living and dead is found in 2nd Thes 2:1-3 where it states plainly that event the (the “gathering, Vs 1),” also called the resurrection/rapture cannot occur until the “there is a great falling away and the man of sin, the son of perdition (Vs 3)” is revealed. We can all agree antichrist will be revealed mid-point of Daniel’s 70th week, therefore if the gathering cannot occur until the man of sin be revealed, the church will required to go through at least the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.
Beyond that we can find several positions for those that believe in a separate rapture but not pre-trib. The most prominent being that of Marvin Rosenthal in the Pre-Wrath rapture theory where he teaches a rapture occurring at an indeterminate time sometime after the revealing of the man of sin at mid-point in Daniel’s week when, he says, the great tribulation will begin and will run for the mentioned indeterminate time period. After the “catching away” the Wrath of God will fall upon the unrepentant world for the remainder of the last 3 ½ years, culminating in Armageddon.
Regarding 2nd Thess 2 and the gathering passage found in verses 1-3, Tommy Ice (Pre-Trib Rapture Institute) and Gary Stearman (Prophecy Watchers) argue weakly that the “falling away” (apostasia) of 2Thes 2:3 is talking about a physical departure of the Saints presumably in an upward direction, instead of a falling away from the faith. These men are so enraptured (pun intended) with pre-trib they “wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction” (2 Pet 3:16), twisting “apostasia” into a “catching away.”
The Question remains, “How does the Pre-Trib position add to or take away from Scripture?” Very simply put, without elaboration, it adds an imagined 3rd Coming of Christ (“phased or split” 2nd Coming), and it takes away at a minimum, 3 ½ years of trouble and strife during the 1st half of Daniel’s 70th Week (Dan 9:27). Benson[6] argues therefore teaching the pre-trib theory not only puts the teacher in danger of having his part taken away (Rev 22:19) from the book of life but also puts in danger all of those who are taught and accept the teaching.

“Breaking The Curse

“If you cannot come to the place yet to embrace the truth that the Church is going through the time of great tribulation: PLEASE! for your own sake, at least back off to a neutral position. Let your confession be something along the lines of: ‘I’m not sure about these things’ or ‘I’m seeking for more light on this matter, and I don’t know for sure what to believe or teach’. And ask the Lord to forgive and cleanse you for any error you have embraced or promoted. He will gladly do so (1Jphn 1:9).
“That neutral position will not defile you and bring you under judgment for adding to or taking away from what the Bible teaches. It is a safe place where you can apply yourself to seek God, and the truth of his Word, on this most serious matter. If I can convince you to at least assume this safe position I will have made headway in regard to the main burden of my heart in writing these words; and that is seeing God’s people removed from the danger of promoting that deceiving and damaging doctrine.
“Let’s enter the final days of this age under the Blessing of God, and not under a curse for failing to give his Word proper regard!”
       P Benson -  “The Curse of the Pre-Trib Rapture!”

"It's entirely possible that a cyber-attack, or a deliberate shutting down of the internet and telephone communications will render any resistance to martial law largely crippled while those bent on domination will still be able to communicate on other networks."
Will you be a hero, a victim, or a just a survivor in the coming holocaust? Half of the human race will not live to see the scheduled millennium.
The present generation of mankind has been chosen by God to go through the most harrowing time ever seen. If the much anticipated rapture of the church fails to materialize in the time projected by the pre-trib theory, the church will be here in time to come along with the unsaved of America and the uncounted billions living in Asia, Europe and Africa when chaos arrives.
Individually, each of us has been chosen by God for this particular time period for purposes known only to Him. One day, hopefully we will be able to look back and understand much more about the final days of human history.
Will the coming days go down in history as seven years of "Great Tribulation" or will it morph into the generally overlooked "Wrath of God? (Rev 6:17; 11:18: 14:10, 19; 15:1,7; 16:1, 19; 19:15)?" Or will it be a combination of periods that will only be understood from a perspective yet to come.
Why have we been chosen to be part of the "Chosen Generation?" Only He knows, but we rest assured there are no mistakes in God's agenda. Nothing will be allowed that could upset His plan for mankind. We have been selected by the Maker of All Things to live at this particular time of history. Perhaps because we are destined to reach potentials far beyond what of what we can conceive, or maybe we'll be among the early casualties in days to come. Either way, if we are in Him, and He in us we can't go wrong.
We are bombarded daily with "The Threat of the Day, "Probable war in the Mid-East, threatened nuclear attack on Israel, possible war between China and Japan, war between Russia and NATO, etc. etc…wars and rumors of wars" (Mt 24:6, Mk 13:7)."
Also on the daily radar are stories of possible EMP explosions that will knock out all electronics in North America and there are fears of hackers who are about to penetrate our electrical grid, shutting down the power that in turn will knockout water supplies and every activity that relies on electricity.[1]
Lately we see stories posted almost by the hour about coming military exercises called Jade-Helm and speculation that a cyber attack may be linked to the coming maneuvers.[2] There appears also to be much evidence of foreign troops (Russian and Chinese) practicing combat in hidden-away areas in secluded portions of our national forests, in preparation for war against the American people.
It's entirely possible that a cyber-attack, or a deliberate shutting down of the internet and telephone communications will render any resistance to martial law largely crippled while those bent on domination will still be able to communicate on other networks.
There is also evidence that Fukushima radiation is killing the Pacific Ocean fishing industry. We have drought in California and bird flu in Minnesota and North Dakota. Alongside that,is a mounting avalanche of evidence that financial collapse is either likely or planned, for the coming fall season of 2015. Evidence is also present that economic boom and bust cycles are due to bust next and prominent prognosticators chart the implosion to occur in the fall of 2015. The testimony of financial experts seems to be endless and it appears wise to listen to them, then pray for the best and prepare for the worst.
Then we have the second start-up of CERN, headquarters for the Large Hadron Collider, reportedly the largest mechanical device every built on planet earth ostensibly built to find the "God Particle," or a replication of the "Big Bang." An exercise which, attributed to acclaimed Physicist Stephen Hawking, has the potential to cause enormous problems.
Many take Hawking's fears to mean we could possibly blow up the universe. Others worry that the CERN may inadvertently (or perhaps on purpose) open a "portal" to another dimension, possibly demonic and unleash a malevolent alien invasion upon us.
Theories abound that as it was in the days of Noah, when giants roamed the land and evil stalked every aspect of life, it is about to become again. God took care of the with a flood that wiped them all out but preserved Noah and his family for a fresh start. This time though, redemption has been already been presented to the human race in the form of Jesus Christ and there will be no more new beginnings.
On top it all the "Shemitah Cycle" is being promoted by different authors and this too is apparently scheduled for the same time period (Fall of 2015), with the cherry on the top of the plate set before us being the tetrad phenomena of four "blood-red" moons in a row interspersed with a solar eclipse and a few more following closely behind. The last blood moon is scheduled for September 28,2015. God controls the cycles of the stars, the moon and the sun and we wonder if He is signaling something we should pay close attention to. After all He said in Genesis 1 heavenly bodies will be used for signs as well as for seasons.
Hitler killed an estimated 13 million innocent people. Stalin's scorecard has been estimated at 60 million and Red China reportedly exterminated a like number. World War 2 claimed more than 50 million lives but all that is peanuts compared to what is before us. In the coming holocaust predicted in Scripture a staggering (3 ½) three and one half BILLION will die (half of the population, Rev 6:8, 9:18). The choices you and I make now may decide whether or not we will be in that number. Of course, anyone can be killed in a catastrophe.That's beyond our control, but we can make sure we live forever in heaven. It requires honesty and a humbling of ourselves, a commodity sorely lacking in most.
When Hitler took power it was estimated that 98%of Germany's pastors rolled over in fear of the 3rd Reich and justified their cowardice by quoting the first two verses of Romans 13:
Ro 13:1: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Who so ever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
That's where they stopped. They didn't go on to verses 3 and 4 and the remainder of the chapter where it's plainly taught that only good and legitimate governments are to be obeyed.
Ro 13:3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. (Emphasis added)
In other words what the passage is teaching is that legitimate governments are moral and they are to be obeyed. If they are evil they are to be resisted.
If the Christian pastors of the above mentioned countries (and others) had vigorously resisted the encroachments of dictators as Deitrich Bonhoeffer and a few more did, the German Holocaust could have perhaps been avoided and millions would have cheated death. God did not create his children to be needlessly executed by sadistic monsters.
If we follow the example of Bonhoeffer in resistance, much mass murder can be avoided. If however, despite our efforts we find ourselves enslaved, then the example of Richard Wurmbrand (Voice of the Martyrs) can be employed. He spent 14 years in a Romanian Communist prison and while there led many to Christ and witnessed to everyone he came in contact with.
Is an earth-shaking calamitous event in our near future? There may well be, but the best course if we are to survive to witness the 2nd coming of Christ is to study history, particularly true history as given in the Holy Bible. In days to come we will see things that will rattle the earth. Many will profess to belong to Him but the shaking out will tell the tale. He will divide the sheep from the goats.
Nu 16:5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will she who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him. Does the Bible teach passive acceptance of evil? Of course not. The entire book of Acts is testimony of resistance of evil with God's people spending a large amount of time in jail because of their active opposition to evil. Hebrews testifies of the cruelties suffered by those who resisted evil in both the Old and New Testaments:
"And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. (Heb 11:36-38)"
And they did all this by faith that God is a just God and is in total control of every situation. Our job is to trust God and then do everything we can to live as free men. Commanded by God, Moses left Midian, returned to Egypt and directly challenged Pharaoh, supreme leader (dictator) of the land that had imprisoned the Children of Israel. Empowered by the Word of God Moses didn't understand submission to a tyrant and walked fearlessly into his presence and demanded. "Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go." The rest is history, but without his obedience to God there might not be a Christian nation today called America.
Elijah stood face to face with the wicked king Ahab and declared "There will be no rain in this land except by my word: (1Ki 17:1)" Elijah had never heard of Romans 13:1, 2. He opposed evil and didn't consider Ahab as "the higher power."
In days to come God will send his Two Witnesses to prophesy against tyrannical rule for 1,260 days as Antichrist throws everything he's got against them in a vain attempt to silence their voices. Then, at the appointed time God will allow them to be killed only to put on a demonstration of resurrection that will freeze an image into the minds of the world of two old bearded men rising majestically into the clouds to live forevermore.
So as the church fiddles (and hides behind their 501-C3 status) while America burns, every one of us have a decision to make. Will we stand like men and resist like the biblical prophets and others of old, and like the revolutionaries of Colonial America, or will we cower like dogs and lick the hands of the Obamas, Bushes and Clinton's and other purveyors of government tax status? Will we be able to overcome our would-be masters? Perhaps not, because this coming tragedy may be the precursor to Antichrist. We have a duty to try however because by so doing we may be able to at least delay the inevitable and see a few more people humble themselves and be saved before wholesale death stalks the land.
Eze 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

By Pastor Dick Carmack
April 26, 2015
Meeting behind closed doors, the mega-rich of the world discuss the latest strategy on how to exploit technology that holds the tantalizing promise of extending human life far beyond threescore and ten.
They are also concerned about how to lock-up the natural resources of earth before the unwashed masses wastes them in feeding useless eaters (you and me). "Oil is peaking and global warming is going to cook us all." They believe known assets are finite and at present rates will be depleted and unavailable in a few dozen years, thus 90% of people must be eliminated to preserve the earth's riches for the rich.
Most of the super rich have sold their souls to Lucifer having bought into the lie that the Almighty can be defeated and that His handbook for living we call the Bible can be discarded. After all, His rules of morality infringe on their sexual freedom to practice whatever perversion suits them at the moment. They are also looking forward to extending their own lifetimes as far as they want them and to enjoy unfettered use of planet earth, claiming it for their own. Their consciences have been burned to charcoal and they lose no sleep over the planned coming slaughter of millions.
These folks are those who are called the "New World Order." They want to do away with national sovereignty and after the coming holocaust, force what is left of the human race into world dictatorship. They want the survivors as meek and compliant slaves for their personal use.
God however has other plans. He told Peter He was not willing that any should perish (2 Pet 3:9) so we know He will make every effort to give men as much time and opportunity possible to repent of sin and accept Him, even the New World Order crowd if that's possible. The Grand Plan of God cannot be delayed nor derailed. Men can plot and scheme but all will be in vain.
Before Jeremiah was born, God said He knew him before he formed him in the belly. He knew him, ordained him and empowered him to accomplish that which the Almighty desired. When Jeremiah complained that he hadn't the ability to speak, God rebuked him and said in effect, "Whosoever I send I will go with him and give him the power to speak in My Name (Jer 1:7-9)."
When Moses was tasked by God to challenge Pharaoh, he too shirked from the job and said he couldn't do it. The Almighty said he would go with him also to see to it that IT WOULD BE DONE (Ex 33:12-17).
The same goes for you and me. For whatever job you are called, you will be empowered from on high and given the strength and ability to accomplish that which is assigned. Are you called to stand in the street and call out senators, governors and presidents and rebuke them publically? If you are God-called, you will have the courage and the power to do just that and NOTHING WILL HARM YOU unless God wills it.
Have you ever wondered why some sermons are Spirit-filled and some dry as Arizona dust? It's because when a God-called, God-empowered preacher stands and delivers a message ordained by the Creator, nothing can stand in the way of its fulfillment. It doesn't matter whether the preacher has attended Seminary or is a self-taught student who has spent most of his life in sin. Whoever God calls, He also gives him the ability to perform the task set before him.
Unfortunately, too many preachers are self-called and are in the pulpit in their own power and are delivering messages they consider important and helpful to their own ministry. Material wealth or "success" is not a consideration of a true CALLED preacher, they don't know what 501-3-C means.
The Bible gives us the reason Abram was called to leave his home and journey to the Promised Land where he became Abraham and the father of a multitude of nations (Gen 17:4). It was because God knew He could trust him to do what He wanted no matter what, to rear his children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and to not turn back.
"Gen 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him."
If we forget our heritage and our calling we need to remember Esther. Mordecai called upon Esther to go into the King to plead for the Jews, risking her life and instructed her, "…and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
He also informed her "For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place (Est 4:14)."
God's Will shall be done. "Esther, if you fail to step up to the plate, though it may cost you your present life, God will just use somebody else and the job will be completed, on time and within budget."
The same principle applies for you and me. If we are called for a specific task (and we all are) and fail to do whatever is necessary to accomplish it, we will have failed that part of our personal test, but the work will be accomplished in some other manner by someone else. There will be no unfinished business, it will all be done.
"What is my job," you ask? Maybe your job is to lay in a store of food to feed the hungry who will come to your door in the coming great tribulation. Maybe your job is to die with a rifle in your hands. Perhaps it is to run a business and help finance the work of God through ministry support. Maybe you are supposed to be the Mayor. Perhaps your job is to help that little old lady next door do her grocery shopping. Prayer warriors are always in demand. Nothing is too large or too small to be important in the overall scheme of the Divine Design.
We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places. The shakers and movers of this present world are merely transitory figures trying to upset the overall plan of God. When it's all over the NWO crowd will be burning in the Lake of Fire and God's people will be inheriting the earth.
"A Psalm of David. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. (Ps 37:1-2)"
Meanwhile, the world rolls over and turns its eyes away as more Christians are beheaded by Isis and the U.S. Government "accidently" leaves more ammo and weapons behind for the Islamic terrorists to pick up and use against "infidels." Islam is the religion of Satan and those who would use it for their plans to dominate the world, are smeared with the blood of the innocent.
Will there be war in America? It seems inevitable given treason in the White House and in Congress. We have been sold into slavery, they just haven't yet put all the padlocks on the gates. Soon the shooting will begin, either with martial law, or Civil War, and it may start with a real or fake nuclear attack on a U.S. city, the mother of all "false flags."
Will the rapture save us and whisk us away to heaven just before our witness is most needed here on earth? Probably not. Biblical theories change about as often as human governments. Theologians come and go but God's Word stands forever.
My personal questioning of the pre-trib theory came when studying Mt 24 and thinking, "That's going to be a very bad time." I questioned my preacher and he told me the "elect" are the Jews, and we had nothing to worry about. Later I found many other contradictions of the theory but will save those for a future article.
Revelation 13:7 (Dan 7:21; Rev 11:7,18; 12:17; 17:15) tells us Antichrist will be given power to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. The word "elect" is used 20 times in the Bible. Four mentions are for the Jews and all those are found in Isaiah. Fifteen mentions are talking about Christians and one mention is for Jesus Himself.
If the church is gone, then Antichrist cannot war against it. Besides, why would God rapture us away just when our witness is most sorely needed?

"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Lu 17:28)
In a short time we may be able to look back at May 1st, 2015 and realize that was the date when the New World Order of Chaos was kicked into high gear. Why May 1st?
For most people May Day is children meeting at the flagpole, gaily wrapped with ribbons while they do their dance, laugh and party. According to one source:
"May Day on May 1 is an ancient Northern Hemisphere spring festival and usually a public holiday; it is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the celebrations that the day includes."[1]
For others though, the spring holiday carries a much more ominous meaning.
"Andy McInerney, a staff member of the communist Workers World Party and a leader of the ANSWER Coalition's illegal alien organizing effort, extolled the glories of May Day in the Spring 1996 edition of Liberation and Marxism. McInerney wrote:
"Every year, the ruling classes around the world are again reminded of their vulnerability and of the power of their gravediggers. On May 1, the world working class displays its strength in demonstrations and strikes. May Day — International Workers' Day — is a reminder to the ruling classes that their days are numbered.... From 1919 onward, the success of May Day in the United States would depend on the success of the communist movement."[2]
Because the goal of the Conspirators is world communism, and because of their compulsive fixation on advertising their moves in advance, we all should be ready to tighten our belts for the final moves of those who would rule the world. May 1st may be the date when they begin their countdown. There seems to be some advertising already being published.
Bix Weir's money newsletter thinks the date may be the beginning of the financial wipeout that is planned:
"…I showed how JP Morgan was able to place their top market rigging executive, William Daley, into the White House as Obama's Chief of Staff in order to officially orchestrate a raise (in) the price of silver from around $28/oz to $49/oz in a matter of 4 months. By doing this they lured unsuspecting silver buyers in and on May 1, 2011 they unleashed the slam using electronic sell orders to start a selling avalanche. This has continued ever (since) and now JP Morgan has covered a majority of its COMEX silver short. By January 2012 the price of silver was brought back down to $28/oz and William Daley resigned - a job well done for the criminals."[3]
Now it appears the time may have come to loose the downward manipulation of price for the white metal and instead be time for dramatic moves to the upside. Weir continues to note: "So here we sit 4 years later and this coming Friday (May 1, 2015) marks the 4th anniversary of the "Silver Drive-By-Shooting" as we like to call it. Oh what a difference four years makes." No longer does JP Morgan hold the largest short position in silver but rather they hold the LARGEST PHYSICAL SILVER LONG POSITION IN HISTORY! (Emphasis by Weir).
Shortly after May 1st also comes the fearful operation called "Jade-Helm 15." One astute observer (Nathan Leal) notes the logo of "Jade-Helm 15" contains a translucent picture of a wooden shoe, the same type worn by the occupants of the Nazi death-camps.[4] If so, is Jade-Helm planned to be the imposition of military rule and the "extraction" of political dissidents for FEMA camps?
It has been long believed by the right wing of American politics that an excuse for a military crackdown and imposition of martial law may be a financial meltdown. With wholesale bankruptcies such as occurred just prior to and after the "Crash of 29" a crisis could easily be triggered (with resulting disorder) that would justify the imposition of a military crackdown both by domestic and foreign troops. Then again, perhaps the melting point will be riots such as in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD.
The events described above or some other variation, are drawing near and the people (the Chosen Generation) who will live through the coming great tribulation, but be spared the Wrath of God, will be well advised to make preparations and to make them quickly. Being by imputed nature an optimistic people, Christians tend to look for the good news and to ignore the bad but "the hour is late," is more than just a vague warning. It truly is getting very late and time in prayer will pay great dividends for those who are seeking divine guidance.
The onslaught of the coming pandemonium and possible anarchy will severely test all Americans. You can forget about defending your food stock with a gun (only a few would want to). Hungry people will quickly band together and if food is not voluntarily offered, it will be taken by force. It'll be much better to open your doors to the truly destitute and desperate and to use the opportunity to make eternal friends instead of adversaries.
A stock of Gospel tracts will go a long way in quickly educating people who have only vaguely heard of The Cross, and a heart to heart conversation may lead many to salvation. You don't have to be skilled as a preacher, just show them love, give them something to eat and something simple to read. I highly recommend "Chick Tracts" because they are in cartoon format, solid and appealing to all. Go online to view the offerings, about $0.15 each I think.[5]
Study your Bible. Particularly study Mt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 17 and 21 for plain, straight forward prophecies of what to expect in the future. These passages warn of the deception to come and give you a concise overview of what is now beginning. Jesus warns us continually to "be not deceived." One thing planned is a nullification of Christian resistance to overwhelming government power by the use of "Clergy Response Teams."
"A large church organization has refused to divulge how many of its pastors are on the FEMA payroll, after a member expressed concerns about religious leaders being used to condition their congregation to accept the declaration of martial law."[6]
These "teams" (28,000 pastors) have been trained to use Romans 13 as justification for Christians to obey without question any orders given by the authorities (a mis-interpretation of the chapter). There wouldn't be an America today if the Colonists had listened to sycophant preachers and then rolled over and worshipped King George.
Another great deception reported by Tom Horn and Cris Putnam is the planned arrival of an apparent phony 2nd Coming[7] planned by the Vatican through their project called L.U.C.I.F.E.R. using a giant telescope on Arizona's Mt. Graham near Safford to supposedly spot "something" coming in the sky. Remember the warning of Scripture:
"For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day." (Lu 17:24)
Millions who have bought into the pre-trib rapture theory will assume this phony "coming" to be the genuine article because they have been conditioned to believe they will be "long gone" before the trouble begins. When they hear the lying news they will think the rapture (because they're still here), is occurring even though it all seems to be headquartered in Rome rather than in the brilliance of heaven.
Are you ready to go through great tribulation? If not time is wasting. The process of the subjugation of earth will take some time and during the procedure, according to the Bible one-half of mankind is scheduled to die. Many reading this article may very well be among that number but our remaining time can be well spent if we concentrate on winning souls instead of gun battles.
Does that mean we should walk willingly into the gas chambers of the FEMA camps? Of course not. Each individual will be required to make his personal decision as to whether he dies on his doorstep when the American Gestapo shows up to haul him off, or whether he will live a little longer to perhaps do a little good in a FEMA camp.
Are you behind in supporting God's Work with the money He has entrusted you with?
If you are then act without delay by sending a substantial gift to missionaries you know who are working their hearts out in bringing the Word to a lost and dying world. Sure, you can give your money to your church if they are indeed diligently supporting the work in the mission fields of the earth, but check and see whether your money is destined to build a bigger parking lot or a bigger kingdom.

The chosen generation has been ordained by God to endure great tribulation. At a certain point, unknown to any man, the sky will open with the unmatched brilliance of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as the resurrection of the dead and the rapture of the church take place. At that juncture the wrath of God will descend with great fury and hell on earth will envelope the creation. We should look first for great tribulation, then the resurrection-rapture, then the wrath of God.
"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth." (Re 16:1)
Until that time the earth will seem to be ablaze. Apostasy never seen before will stalk the land as fathers will turn against their children and children against their parents. None will be immune as mankind becomes as animals willing even to betray their own flesh to preserve their miserable lives a little longer. Normally civilized people will slay their neighbors for a morsel. Many lives will be lost in a vain attempt to live for a few more days by murder and stealing, instead of seeking God. The wise however will seek out and bond with others and will fight together to oppose the forces of evil, all the while trusting in God to see them through.
"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." (Mt 24:10)
"And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolk's, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death." (Lu 21:16)
The seeds of such behavior here at home are being deliberately sown even now. On the one hand the federal government of the United States has for many years been embarked on a program which contains the seeds of destruction. Under the guise of getting rid of "obsolete equipment," the Pentagon has been transferring near new or gently used military equipment to police departments all across America.
This is legal according to 10 U.S. Code § 381 which allows for "Procurement of equipment by State and local governments through the Department of Defense: equipment for counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response activities."
What kind of an emergency is contemplated where the police of a town of 10 or 15,000 needs a tank, riot gear and MRAPs? Why is its use being encouraged?
On the other hand, much like the Wizard of Oz that manipulated his puppets from behind a curtain, apparent paid provocateurs have been employed by someone to flock to the crisis scenes in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore to burn buildings and vehicles, to destroy all the private property they can get in their sights and to kill or maim as many cops as possible. The scenes we see on the evening "news" are not there by accident. They have been deliberately planned over many years in an effort to set brother against brother and father against son. This is planned chaos, it's not by chance.
This is not to excuse rouge cops who are willing to be egged on in a deliberate plan to bring about extreme disorder in society. They too, will get their just due for going along with the program.
That of course, is what Satan's New World Order has in mind. Chaos is the goal so, they believe, out of that extreme disorder they can bring their brand of necessary order. The type of "order" contemplated has the insiders on thrones of gold living lives of unparalleled luxury while those of us that survive the "necessary" chaos will be slaves for the remainder of our lives.
Nevertheless, God's Word paints a different picture. He informs us that indeed, evil will reign unfettered for a short seven years on earth. At the end portion of that time period His WRATH will be visited upon the servants of the Devil and then, after a perfect reign of 1000 years, a great courtroom scene will unfold. Those that are presently planning and executing the turmoil along with their comrades, will be loosed from their prison of hell, judged and thrown into the Lake of Fire for all eternity.
True Christianity, for its time of testing, will be taken through its most severe trial. In the days to come phony Christians will be weeded from among the genuine, the goats will be separated from the sheep.
We don't as yet have documented cases of people (in the U.S. at least) being put to death upon only the accusation of relatives, but it's in the offing. The Bible predicted it all 2,000 years ago and it's already coming to pass with breathtaking speed in many parts of the world.
Consider history. For centuries Jewry has been under irrational attack by almost the entire world while Christianity has been RELATIVELY exempt compared to the attempted genocide of the Jew. Even Christians though are sometimes caught up in the insanity of Jew hatred, being spurred on by false teachers who twist Scripture and who ignore the simple teaching of Genesis 12 when God told Abram to get out of his home country and migrate to a new land to father the Jewish people. He promised at that time to not only bless Abram but also everyone who believed God and also blessed the Jewish people:
"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." (Ge 12:3)
Now the worm of death has turned and modern (not ignoring historical) Christianity is also under insane attack by Satan's culture called the "peaceful religion of Islam" (which by the way is the fourth horseman of the apocalypse, think "green" {that subject for a later article}). That persecution will continue and increase in intensity until it seems every last Christian will be killed. The master manipulators who are pulling the strings are working overtime to implement the final phases of their plans. In these late hours the world is headed into a blood bath that can hardly be imagined, all who have faith in the God of the Bible and His Son Jesus Christ will soon be running for their lives.
Not only will there be another holocaust of the Jews where two-thirds of those in Israel will perish…
"And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts the rein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left the rein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God." (Zech 13:8, 9)
…but the Christians also will be under a continuing death sentence. Matthew 24 tells us the elect of God will be hunted down and slain for the testimony of Christ.
"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations FOR MY NAME'S SAKE." (Mt 24:9, Emphasis added)
The Jews will not be killed for the name of Christ. The prophetic chapters of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are NOT talking about the Jews. The elect of God encompasses all who are saved and who will undergo great tribulation for the Name of Christ. The following references also leave no doubt who will be persecuted and killed in the days shortly to come, look them up: Mt 10:17; Mr 13:9; Lu 21:12; John 15:20. The books of Acts, 1 Peter and Revelation testify to the same.
If the New World Order of Chaos can foment enough trouble to cause brothers to kill brothers, then perhaps a nuclear false flag attack on an American city will be avoided. Only God knows what lies just ahead. The Chosen Generation though has nothing to worry about. If die we must, then so be it, but if we are destined to be witnesses to the end, Jesus promises to protect us:
"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. 18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish." (Lu21:17, 18)
It will be argued by the pre-trib faithful this plethora of verses apply to the "tribulation saints," but they also tell us the vast multitude seen in heaven (Rev 7:9) will be converted by the early rapture of believers and the Bibles left behind. The Bible asks however, "…how shall they hear without a preacher (Rom 10:14)?" The wise will pray for the best, prepare for the worst and leave the sunshine pump to the pre-trib and prosperity preachers.
The record of Scripture describes how the saints of God have been persecuted to the death. Hebrew 11 gives graphic testimony as to their trials (Hebrews 11:36-38), torn as under, burned at the stake, stoned and slain with the sword. The Gospels and Revelation also tell of the extreme trials yet to come upon His people.
In addition to mass death caused by war and persecution, men's hearts will fail them for fear of what's coming upon the earth. We will see signs in the heavens and perhaps will witness some of the calamities described in Revelation. Already we are seeing via television great earthquakes and the devastation they cause. The nuclear plant melt-down of Fukushima has yet to run its course as has the extreme drought in the west possibly caused by HAARP. What's coming next?
Our skies are being polluted on a daily basis by aircraft spraying toxic chemicals and metals dubbed "chemtrails" spreading out and covering the heavens with a cloudy-looking toxic mess that is killing flora, wildlife and humans (google "chemtrails" for over900,000 hits). When questioned, the Feds plead ignorance or quietly whisper "It may be an effort to combat "global warming." How about "global murder?" It seems the time for Satan to be given a free hand to attempt to bring his plans to fruition on planet earth has already begun.
You and I have been chosen by God to live through the time that is upon us. Listen for that still small voice for individual direction. Immerse yourself now in prayer and Bible study. The hour is very late and may even explode this summer or fall when either the "beginning of sorrows" or "great tribulation" begin.

The Chosen of this generation are under attack on every side by purveyors of fear. Fear of persecution, fear of prosecution, fear of death and horrors of horrors, fear of loss of tax exemption!
A recent article concerning the possible loss of tax exemption by religious institutions,[1] primarily churches, for refusing to perform same-sex “marriages,” would probably be the best thing that could happen to America’s churches. If the church loses their tax exemptions maybe they’ll wake up, kneel down and say, “Lord forgive us for worshipping the state and its powers!”
If the state (any governmental body) has the power to grant tax exemption to churches, then that same body has the power to take it away. Since when does the church go hat in hand to Caesar to beg to be relieved of taxes? I can’t imagine Peter, Paul, Matthew, Mark, Luke or John petitioning the king and arguing that because of the nature of their calling, they should be granted relief from taxes. Didn’t Jesus tell Peter to get money out of the mouth of a fish to pay the tax collector?
We hear cries from the pulpit about “separation of church and state,” but when the rubber meets the road most of those preachers line up to file their forms so they can avoid paying property taxes and give exemptions to their tithers. In that case they are embracing and kissing up on the state trying to maintain something they should never have applied for in the first place. If you accept corporate status, or 503-3-C status from a government body, you have become A CREATURE OF THE STATE and have betrayed the One who called you to preach the Gospel. He called you to be His preacher not to be a financial advocate for your organization.
Because of widespread ignorance of the law and pure cowardice, these pastors have held out their arms for the Federal handcuffs and mentally justified it by telling themselves they are doing it for their members. The members are able to take care of themselves. If someone gives a gift to God because his tithes are tax deductible, the church is better off without them.
Part of the problem can be traced back to Senator Lyndon Johnson in 1954 who reportedly was upset by pastors who preached messages on politics that he didn’t like so he proposed an amendment to a bill making changes in the tax code, that supposedly prohibited churches from involving themselves in politics. The media picked it up and by the time they were through with their twists, omissions and lies, hundreds of thousands of pastors rolled over and went to their deacon boards and told them they could no longer criticize the government. The deacons bowed down and said, “OK pastor you know best, we sure don’t want to lose our tax exemptions!” Here is a brief synopsis of the bill as given by a supposedly authoritative “encyclopedia.”[2]
“501(c) prohibition
“Organizations recognized under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code are subject to limits or absolute prohibitions on engaging in political activities and risk loss of status as tax exempt status if violated Specifically, they are prohibited from conducting political campaign activities to intervene in elections to public office.”
Talk about misleading people. The above is worded to induce fear in preachers and churches. The key is in the title “501(c)(3) prohibition.” If you are not a government slave by virtue of accepting 501-3-C status, then you don’t belong to them. Sure you’ll have to pay property taxes but most people think you should anyway. Church buildings were constructed with the offerings of working people who pay taxes every day so why should the church be any different? Besides, it’s entirely possible to receive state tax reduction without applying for, or accepting state or federal “tax exemption.” Many states automatically recognize non-profits and they won’t tell you to curb your tongue either.
On top of that, the IRS code itself states the following:
“Recognition of Tax-Exempt Status
Automatic Exemption for Churches
Churches that meet the requirements of IRC section 501(c)(3) are automatically considered tax exempt and are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS. Although there is no requirement to do so, many churches seek recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS because…”[3] (Emphasis added)
If you look a church, act like a church and walk and talk like a church, the tax monsters will ignore you, it’s the law. In their own words, it’s automatic. Look it up. It simply amounts to the fact the “Johnson Amendment” notwithstanding, that America’s preachers have been running scared for over 60 years from a boogey man that doesn’t exist because they, or their accountants were too afraid, or never bothered to look up the law. More likely, there seems to be feeling of security when you cozy up to the state and get patted on the head. If churches don’t want to be slaves to the Feds the FIRST thing they need to do is throw their 501 exemptions in the trash and start preaching the Word with faith and power!
This leads us to “Clergy Response Teams” where a reported 26,000 to 28,000 U.S. pastors have been trained to be Federal spies and lapdogs preaching Romans 13 to mean “do whatever government says you should do,” don’t question it, don’t protest, just do it. Much like you are taught in the military, when an order is given “your duty is to obey.” And as Alfred Lord Tennyson said, “Ours not to reason why, ours but to do and die.” As a young Christian I remember my Sunday School teacher interpreting Rom 13:1-7 that way (he worked for the government) and even then something didn’t ring true.
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. (Ro 13:1)” Conveniently, they ignore most of the rest of the passage.
It has been observed by many writers before me that God didn’t create Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Genghis Khan or Pol Pot to be mass murderers but they were certainly the “powers that be” at that time. They were the powers of their respective countries, but certainly not deserving of allegiance let alone obedience. If a gang of armed thugs break down your door, beat you up, rape your wife and threaten to kill your children they are certainly the present “powers that be.” Does God want us to bow down and ask what else they want? Absolutely not. A literal reading of the passage (Rom 13:1-7) teaches us LEGITIMATE governments are to be obeyed but illegitimate ones are to be opposed. Should we obey God or man? (Acts 5:29) It’s a perversion of Scripture to say we are supposed to obey ungodly, rotten people who have grasped temporary control of a government.
Alex Jones reported in 2007: “A shocking KSLA (Louisiana) news report has confirmed the story we first broke last year, that Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the federal government to "quell dissent" and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.” The same article continued: “A whistleblower who was secretly enrolled into the program told us the Feds were clandestinely recruiting religious leaders to help implement Homeland Security directives in anticipation of a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a nationally declared emergency.”[4]
“NDAA Section 1022, subsection c allows “(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”
Many fear the “detention” areas are American concentration camps and will end with gas chambers like Nazi Germany. The same game plan followed by Hitler is being followed by the New World Order of Chaos, and the eventual goal is to reduce the population of the earth to “sustainable levels.”
Ask your pastor about Romans 13 and listen carefully to his answer. Bear in mind, the “powers that be” are intent on reducing America’s population by 90% or more. That means when it’s all over (if they are successful) the U.S. will have a population around 30-40 million.
[See 2 pastors from two big churches in Grants Pass, Oregon peddle Romans 13 to ignorant masses below also, read Pastor Butch Paugh's article to those two pastors]
“Current global population of over 7 billion is already two to three times higher than the sustainable level. Several recent studies show that Earth’s resources are enough to sustain only about 2 billion people at a European standard of living.”[5] Others such as the notorious “Georgia Guidestones” advocate only ½ billion left living out of the present seven plus billion number. How can this be accomplished without mass murder? Who has the capability to reduce the world’s population so drastically? It certainly can’t be accomplished by natural attrition.
Will America’s pastors who form the “Clergy Response Team” be able to justify all they are doing on Judgment Day when they advise us to docilely return to Egypt or to bow the neck for the chopping block? God tells us the only king we should set over ourselves is a brother, not a stranger (De 17:15). I don’t know the folks in Washington, D.C., maybe you claim them but I’ll guarantee you most are not my brothers.
We are today faced with the reality the Lord Himself is bringing Judgment upon not just America but on the whole world. Matthew 24 is especially eloquent is describing the steps that are today being taken to subjugate the earth under a boot on the neck of a “stiff necked and rebellious people.” The events described in Matthew have been recorded for almost 2,000 years and cannot be altered. That’s not to mean however we are supposed to go quietly to our deaths. We are taught consistently in the Holy Word that men have resisted evil since evil existed and we are to do no less.
“Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: (Ezek 33:1,2)”
Please note the phrase “when I bring the sword upon a land.” God is plainly saying that He is bringing the sword and we are to warn the people with all our might and by the Word, we are taught to resist evil and to obey God.
Ezekiel 33 tells pastors they should be watchmen on the wall. If they see danger coming they should blow the trumpet, otherwise the blood of those who perish will be on their hands.
Ask your pastor what Romans 13:1-7 means. Ask him if he belongs to that select group of 28,000. Ask him if he says he does, will he be able to wash the blood from off his hands? Should we quickly agree with what our leaders tell us or should we question their wisdom and motives? If he refuses to answer the question or says we are obligated to follow all orders, perhaps it’s time to look for another pastor or church.
Maybe it’s time to study the life of Medal of Honor winner Sgt. Alvin York in WW 1 who though he was a devout believer, singlehandedly outshot an entire German machine gun battalion, killing 25 men in the process, and later the same day, along with seven of his men brought in 132 German prisoners.
The Bible teaches us to resist evil and to actively fight against it when it oppresses us. Any pastor, no matter what his motives, that teaches we are to knuckle under to every directive of government is betraying his calling. The hour is very late and decision time is upon us.

"Why is war so wonderful? Because it creates artificial demand...the only kind of artificial demand, moreover, that does not raise any political issues: war, and only war, solves the problem of inventory."
Are most wars fought because of money? Of course they are. Huge profits are made from the sale of material and the human cost in death and misery is hardly noticed by those who start and run the wars. Sometimes wars are fought because accumulated debt can't be paid so the debtor goes to war against the lender. Often wars are declared and fought to distract attention from other looming problems such as economic collapse. In general, war is good for business and the Bible testifies the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Is that an indictment of capitalism? No, but it's an accusation of guilt against MONOPOLY capitalism. Mom and Pop are not monopolists, but global corporations that have no allegiance to their home countries are, and if a few million people have to be sacrificed for the "bottom line" so be it.
Because of our being the CHOSEN GENERATION to go through the coming great tribulation brought about by the love of money, we need to be aware of how the "mainstream news media" is using human gullibility to turn us into mindless robots who will jump when told to do so and to sit down when that signal is given. A classic example of how this works is described in a small book published in 1967 entitled "Report From Iron Mountain (RFIM) on the possibility and desirability of Peace." It was written by Leonard C. Lewin and published by The Dial Press.
Immediately upon publication the book was jumped on by the captive media and denounced as a hoax. Why? Because the book exposed for all the world to see how schemes are concocted behind closed doors (or in mountain caverns) and then foisted upon an unwary public, at first resisted, then grudgingly accepted and then eagerly defended by those who a short time before were skeptical. It seems the human race in general is deathly afraid of being outside of popular opinion even when common sense has to be thrown out the window in order to believe the latest lie.
RFIM is free on the internet[1] and is recommended reading for those who are not afraid to admit they have been hoodwinked. It exposes in detail, plans that were made more than 50 years ago on how to psychologically manipulate the public into selling themselves into slavery for the fear of boogey men that don't exist.
A telling comment embedded in the report under the heading "SECTION 5-ECONOMIC" deals with how and why wars are fought for economic reasons:
"One writer on the subject puts it this way: 'Why is war so wonderful? Because it creates artificial demand...the only kind of artificial demand, moreover, that does not raise any political issues: war, and only war, solves the problem of inventory.'"
The most informative book sections however are Sections 6 & 7, where several fictitious, laughable, and some deadly serious scenarios are put forth to help control the masses, to herd them into the proper corrals and to induce them to finance their own destruction. Among the proposals are a DELIBERATELY WASTEFUL military establishment, falsely initiated and vastly expanded social welfare programs, bogus environmental hazards (acid rain, global warming etc.), a wasteful and "open-ended" space program "with unreachable goals" and also eugenics. The last being a program of artificial insemination instead of natural procreation for population control. They even suggest using UFOs as a way to scare us into submission.
Those are some of the threats which the Chosen Generation will be facing in days to come. The Conspirators are deadly serious. They are convinced their conclusions are the only way to preserve the human race (meaning them) and to save the planet (from us). It is diabolical, rooted in hell and slated for destruction but only after massive devastation of the world. In summary this small book outlines a program inspired by the Prince of Darkness himself, all in an effort to destroy as many as possible of the human race.
How many people do you know who accept without question the hoax called "Global Warming?" How many believe the federal government would never do anything that would harm its own people? How many are convinced the birth-rate must be drastically curtailed? How many consider abortion a necessary evil?
Report from Iron Mountain provides some fascinating reading. Among the different proposed remedies in case "peace breaks out," are
1. "ECONOMIC. War has provided both ancient and modern societies with a dependable system for stabilizing and controlling national economies. No alternate method of control has yet been tested in a complex modern economy that has shown itself remotely comparable in scope or effectiveness…
2. "POLITICAL. The permanent possibility of war is the foundation for stable government; it supplies the basis for general acceptance of political authority. It has enabled societies to maintain necessary class distinctions, and it has ensured the subordination of the citizen to the state, by virtue of the residual war powers inherent in the concept of nationhood. No modern political ruling group has successfully controlled its constituency after failing to sustain the continuing credibility of an external threat of war…
3. "SOCIOLOGICAL. War, through the medium of military institutions, has uniquely served societies, throughout the course of known history, as an indispensible controller of dangerous social dissidence and destructive antisocial tendencies. As the most formidable of threats to life itself, and as the only one susceptible to mitigation by social organization alone, it has played another equally fundamental role: the war system has provided the machinery through which the motivational forces governing human behavior have been translated into binding social allegiance….
4. "ECOLOGICAL. War has been the principal evolutionary device for maintaining a satisfactory ecological balance between gross human population and supplies available for its survival. It is unique to the human species…
5. "CULTURAL AND SCIENTIFIC. War-orientation has determined the basic standards of value in the creative arts, and has provided the fundamental motivational source of scientific and technological progress. The concepts that the arts express values independent of their own forms and that the successful pursuit of knowledge has intrinsic social value have long been accepted in modern societies; the development of the arts and sciences during this period has been corollary to the parallel development of weaponry…"
Unfortunately, the gullible, head-in-the-sand generation with which we live will at least in the beginning of the coming trial be the enemies of those who recognize what is happening. Choose carefully then, your friends and confidants because many whom you consider to be brothers in Christ will inform against you:
"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." (Mt 24:10)
If you live to see the next few months or years then you are part of the Chosen Generation and you are slated to go through at least part of the very worst time humanity has ever faced. God has chosen YOU, for His purposes and for His plans. Those whom He has chosen He will protect until their assignment is complete:
"And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days." (Mr 13:20)
Will your job be to help feed those who will be starving, or will you be assigned to be a witness to the lost? Perhaps FEMA camp personnel will be your field of ministry. Whatever is planned for you and me our job is to do it to the very best of our ability. Personal safety is not the issue, for it matters little whether we die early or late, the main question is, will we be true to the God of Glory who gave His life on the old rugged cross so we could be pardoned of sin by accepting His substitute for our sin? After the next few years all believers are slated to live forever with the Giver of Life.
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." (Eph 6:13)
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:" (1Pe 2:9)
To sum up, we are engaged in spiritual warfare (Eph 6:12) in a battle to the death, and are literally fighting against the forces of hell that are aligned against us. They are desperately trying to bring in a kingdom of darkness where Lucifer in time will be shown in his true colors, though his disciples think he will reign forever. His "light" will go out and through the murk we will eventually see him for what he is, a creature from the pit, destined to eventually find his place in the Lake of Fire. In the meantime he will lie and deceive to the uttermost and he is formidable. He's been at it for 6,000 years and has much more experience than any of his lackeys. Here's one of the latest:
The Pew Research Center[2] reports Christianity is declining in numbers while Islam is growing. Their words, "Christians are leaving the faith in droves and the trend isn't slowing down." Pew projects by mid-century Islam will overtake Christianity.
Compared to God's Omniscience the New World Order crowd is still in kindergarten, though they believe they have it all figured out and that they are winning the war. What they can't understand is it's just a battle, God has already won the war. The NWO Conspirators are working hard and they think their efforts are responsible for the very large exodus from organized Christianity. What they refuse to look at however is that the Bible predicted it a long time ago. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" (2Th 2:3)
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" (1Ti 4:1)
Karl Marx is quoted as saying, "The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope." Think of it another way, God is giving the would-be world masters enough rope to hang themselves high. Yes, true Christianity is declining, but it's a necessary thing before all the pieces are in place.

May 16, 2015
Sitting in the pews of America's churches are an untold number of Christians who are merely going through the motions. Many attend only because of the fellowship of other believers but are vaguely unsatisfied with the homilies delivered every Sunday morning by pastors who are seemingly content to see as many seats as possible occupied and who spend sleepless nights worrying about how to "get the numbers up." Most of these people are of the Chosen Generation, are about to enter into Great Tribulation and don't have a clue because the preacher doesn't have a clue. Most pastors nowadays avoid prophecy like a foolish man avoids God.
Gone is the zeal to preach the uncompromised, pure and whole Word of God, contending zealously for souls. Having been replaced by concern over the weekly offering, to how to raise enough money to pave the north-end of the parking lot. We know of churches with 25 members that help support 14 missionaries and have heard of churches with 500 members that support three or four. Soul winning seems to be confined to whoever shows up.
We don't hear much about sin these days. We have "believers" coming to church in shorts and tank-tops and painted ladies leading the singing and preaching in between songs, and rarely a word about honoring the King of Kings with decent clothing and respect for God's Word. Someone pointed out if you were invited to the White House to meet the resident politician you'd wear your best suit but when you go to church it's OK to wear your undies on the outside. Sometimes I'm told, even the pastor wears shorts and sermonizes from notes about his latest vacation to the ski-slopes and about how hard it was to get a cappuccino after midnight.
Have you heard about sodomy? It's now called everything but what it is and the sodomites go ballistic when it's called by its right name. "Can't offend anyone you know." "Must be progressive you know." Less that 2% of the population (sodomites), now control the Captive Media, the White House and the spineless people called Congressmen and Senators, advertising their sin in public and crucifying any who dare to complain or fail to bow down before them.
"Don't you dare call me a sodomite! I was born that way and I can't change!" Last week, Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense, after polluting the Armed Services with his Globalist poison is now leading the Boy Scouts of America into the pit by wanting to have sodomite Scout leaders. He said in effect, "Christian values are unsustainable and we must change with the times."
"There is no fear of God before their eyes." (Ro 3:18)
"And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet." (Ro 1:27) [AIDS and other venereal diseases]
In other words on Judgment Day the sodomites will brazenly defy the God of Creation and will find their just reward for un-repented sin. All sin will be judged on that day and excuses will hold no weight, only the shed blood of Jesus Christ can remit human sin.
Concerning our more immediate futures, a lady in a medium sized church in Arizona remarked to her pastor after hearing a guest speaker explain why he thought the pre-trib rapture theory was flawed (a rare occurrence of tolerance for what the majority considers heresy) remarked, "I've always believed we're going to go through great tribulation Pastor, but I didn't want to hurt your feelings."
If you single out church members across the country and ask them if they believe in the pre-trib theory, about half in the fundamental churches will quietly admit to their doubts of its validity. What's wrong? Why is the church so doubtful of what's being taught?
In spite of the so-called educational system, a lot of people can still read and write and what they discern is that we are in deep, deep trouble. There is general understanding among the born-again faithful the Scriptures are being softened in an effort to get the attendance up. When we see Christians around the world being murdered just because they're Christians we understand that for those folks at the least, Great Tribulation has already arrived. They somehow missed the rapture and if you question them about it, they look at you like you just arrived from another planet.
If you turn on the evening TV "news" and relate that to what you just heard in church you must be scratching your head. In the past few weeks we have been told (even by the controlled captive media) that Christians are being butchered all over the Middle-East all the while our government and media talking heads assure us "Islam is a religion of peace." Nary a mention in church though of about how those decapitated were confused as to why they weren't raptured.
It's rare to nowadays attend a service where the pastor raises his arms, shouts and gets on fire for the Lord. It's rare to hear a sermon that departs from the doctrines taught in Bible College, yet the congregation is ravenously hungry for the truth. A freight train filled with death is roaring down the tracks and pre-trib America is stalled in the headlights. There's going to be a terrible wreck. And most of the church not only can't see it coming, they don't even know we're broken down.
There's a feeling in the gut however that a black cloud is descending over the land and those who are not afraid to challenge the prevailing view are quietly preparing for very hard times ahead. Say it flat out. Many of us are preparing for great tribulation and stocking up on food (not for ourselves anymore than to help feed those who will be destitute and begging at our doors) and ammo (to discourage those who want to be our dictators). We are also laying in a supply of illustrated tracts (because many nowadays can't read but can still look at pictures) and pocket New Testaments for the few that can still discern the written Word..
Some however have given up on the devil inspired theory called pre-trib and instead have opted to just read our Bibles and believe it. When it says in 2nd Th 2:1-4, that before the day comes when Jesus returns to gather us to Himself (Vs 1), the Antichrist will be revealed and millions upon millions will die, we just believe it.
Take a private and informal survey in your own Bible-believing church. Ask them if pre-trib has any relevance to them. If they think at all you'll be amazed at what you learn. Most real Christians are too much gentlemen and ladies to make a fuss about a popular, though flawed doctrine. In the privacy of their hearts however they realize all the good feelings generated by an early departure are just that, and they are quietly making preparations for hard times.
Only the pastors that teach the "seven years of great tribulation" can tell us exactly why they teach it because that phrase, like the word "rapture" can't be found in the Bible. Maybe we can mark it down to wishful thinking, laziness, or perhaps the use of sermons originally written by others and picked up and adopted by preachers too busy with other things to do original research like reading the Bible. "If a respected preacher/teacher/author lectures on a seven year great tribulation it must be so, after all they are the experts and who am I to question it?"
Let's see what the first book of the New Testament says in the tenth chapter.
"16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;" (Mt 10:16, 17, all Bible emphasis added)
Being a disciple in those days was risky business and the same is true today in most of the world and quickly becoming so in America. When we get to Mark 13 and Luke 17 and 21 we get the same story. But if we continue on in Matthew, Chapter 24 gives us at least two distinct periods designated (beginning of sorrows and great tribulation) during the time to come. After first warning us in verse four to take care not to be deceived, we are taught there will be wars, rumours of wars, nations rising against nations, famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places (vv. 6 and 7) and that particular portion of time is named: "The beginning of sorrows."
Jesus then tells His audience, after that they will betray and hate one another, be afflicted and killed all for His Name's Sake (vs. 9). Remember, the disciples at this point are followers of Jesus. They are still Jews and still hold to the tenets of the Bible of the time (the OT) but first and foremost they are believers in Jesus! They are not yet called Christian (that happens at Antioch), they don't have the name but they certainly have the game. They are warned deception will abound but "Hang in there and keep spreading the Word, it's going to get rough! And by the way, be prepared to flee." (vv. 9-20)
The next time period is now identified, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." (Mt 24:21)
But take heart, though you will be hated, hunted and butchered as the world and antichrist their leader seeks your destruction, God has it all under control,
"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." (Mt 24:22)
The next four verses (23-26) warn of us a deception that will be so believable that if it were possible even the elect would be deceived. One popular book "Exo-Vaticana"[1] postulates there may well be a faked Second Coming that will be the deception that will top all deceptions. There may even be a hologram seen in the sky, picked up and broadcast over all the world but Mt. 24:26 reminds us that when Christ actually returns it will be seen by every human eye, ALL at the same time.
"For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." (Mt 24:27)
That means it won't be by hologram, it won't be by TV, it will be SUPERNATURAL. Please note the next three verses, reprinted here and underlined for emphasis:
"29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Mt 24:29-31)
The elect of God includes all believers, dead or alive. The graves will be opened, the dead raised and those who remain alive snatched into the clouds to be with the Lord forever. That's the message of 1 Th 4:15-17, the resurrection of the dead and the taking of the saints are all at the same time. In popular terms, the resurrection and the rapture are the same event. It all happens on the Day of The Lord. Look it up, unless you've been so brainwashed you can no longer find your concordance.
For encouragement, David Jeremiah tells a story of current events that he says he checked out and found to be true (broadcast sermon 5-10-15). He reports hearing it from a conference speaker who told of the 21 Christians recently beheaded by ISIS. The ISIS butchers went down the line and asked each of the first 20 if they were Christians and when they replied "Yes," they were promptly beheaded. The 21st man who was NOT a Christian was so impressed with their courage that when it came his turn to answer he too became a Christian at that moment and his blood was also spilled for the cause of Christ. That's the testimony possible when we READ and believe our Bibles, face the truth and refuse to accept fables about an "early departure."

Many in the Chosen Generation, especially the right wing of American politics that are moral, patriotic Americans don't have a clue as to why they are moral and patriotic. They think they are just that way because they were born American and love their country. They have no conception of the literally millions of men and women who gave their lives for the faith of Jesus Christ the Author of morality, the ONE who made America possible. The One, whose blood was shed by the devil's angels in a vain attempt to squash that faith. But to no avail, God's Word cannot be broken, nay, not even detoured.
It's proverbial that history repeats itself. In addition we are informed that those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. In other words, if we refuse to study history we're going to make some magnificent bloopers in the future. An outstanding example of that refusal, is going to be A LIE so big that most of the world is going to enthusiastically join in the victory march of the coming antichrist, the "savior" of the world, many if not most, right-wing conservative Americans included.
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:" (2Th 2:11) "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." (Mt 24:11)
The blooper of all bloopers will cost some their lives immediately, or perhaps just their freedom if they are fortunate enough not to be shot on sight and if they somehow survive the trip and duration of the FEMA camps that are planned for our near future.
There are people who know about magnificent bloopers. If we had lived in a country where almost a whole nation fell obediently in line and followed a maniac named Adolph Hitler we would be better armed. The Germans were mesmerized by his waving arms, shrill voice and hypnotic gestures to the point where they believed without question all they were told, and were willing to die for the lies they heard daily over German radio. Being unsaved and without discernment, the Germans committed blooper #1 when they obediently, blindly followed Hitler.
Joseph Goebbels was the chief of propaganda and "enlightenment" and he was a master of his trade. We might even compare him to the invisible head of the "Mainstream Media (MSM)" of our day where professional liars ply their trade with a straight face on the "evening news" of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox or other popular "news" programs. Their particular brand of mis and dis-information is bought in wholesale quantities by the bored masses who have their minds on sex and food in that order and really are not interested in doing any serious searching for the truth. "Please don't rattle my cage."
What most don't understand is the fact that we're not really in a battle with the New World Order. Nor are we fighting left wing politicians or Presidents or Congressmen who have sold their souls for a mess of pottage. Fact is, we are in a battle with dark spiritual entities for our earthly survival, and unless you are washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, your eternal survival is in great peril.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph 6:12)
How many times have we read the preceding verse and gone right on, not stopping to consider what it really says. On one plane we are fighting against amoral people who have obtained high office, including the presidency of the United States and membership in its Congress. On the other hand in the REAL battle, we are wrestling against unseen demonic powers that are either guiding politicians who would sell their own mothers for another dollar, OR, those demons are in fact INDWELLING those politicos we consider "somewhat rational" and puzzle over why they do such stupid things.
We have rejected the God of the Bible, He has a way of cramping our style. Because of that rejection, we have left the door of our minds wide open for the deception of all deceptions that is planned by Satan with his minions for a time not very far down the road. If we study history, in particular the history of the Hitlerian era we will see the same patterns being repeated in the U.S. today. That great hypnotic event fooled a nation. The event planned for the future will deceive the world.
Though we make no claim to know the future outside of what the Bible teaches, if we study the history of the dictators of history we may notice a pattern that shows itself over and over as ruthless and amoral men claw their way to the top of the heap and then turn on those that helped them achieve their goal. Without conscience those dictators, Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Caesar, King Herod and Genghis Khan, once they achieved the pinnacle of their success ruthlessly turned on their supporters and eliminated (murdered) any they perceived as a threat to their new positions of power.
History may be about to repeat itself. The Chosen Generation had better study up, not only the Bible if we want to remain alive until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, but also pay attention to current events. If we examine the pure genius of a diabolical mind, we may discover a pattern that covers all the bases and explains a nagging problem this writer has wrestled with for years. How is it possible the Man of Sin can ride down the street on a white horse, tie up at the hitching rail in front of the U.N. and still deceive a world that has been repeatedly warned for hundreds of years of his impending arrival? He will fulfill the desires of the people, “salvation WITHOUT repentance!
Hatched in hell, the possible plot is simplicity itself and when pulled off may set the stage for what Satan believes will be his eventual victory over God Himself. Suppose however, a sizeable remnant of the Chosen Generation is forewarned and thus forearmed, and will refuse to take the bait the world is presently salivating for? The Devil of Darkness is crafty beyond our imagination and he is the "father of lies." Indeed the Bible says the Serpent "…was more SUBTIL than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made." (Gen 3:1)
Suppose the menace the world now faces ("Global government"), and is aware of, in varying degrees of understanding suddenly brings forth the rider of the white horse who poses as the savior of the world who then turns and "eliminates the very ones who put him in power? He will be A HERO! We have precedents in history for such a thing, as Hitler, Stalin Mao and more recently Kim Jong Un of North Korea who recently had his Armed Forces Minister Hyon Yong Chol executed in front of hundreds reportedly because he took a nap during a meeting with the exalted leader. In short, when an absolute dictator takes power he often turns on those who helped get him there, taking their lives because he now perceives them to be a threat. The aforementioned dictators did it, did it quickly and without remorse.
When the Man of Sin arrives, possibly with great fanfare in some momentous event, perhaps somehow "arriving in the sky," (Mt 24:23-27) will he then suddenly turn on the group that facilitated the event and assume TOTAL power? You can bet he will at some point. "(He) shall do according to his own will." (Dan 11:16) antichrist won't take orders, he will give them and if the New World Order elites try to run the show they will be speedily disposed of.
History is filled with the treachery of men. Could it happen again when a popular leader is somehow raised to the office of "King of the World" and then turns on the very people who expedited his rise to office, thus consolidating himself as a hero to the people of the world? Stranger things have happened, and in our case most of the world would rejoice and fight each other for a chance to follow the newly discovered "savior" who just rescued us from the clutches of the "New World Order." Therein lies the GREAT DANGER, will the world rejoice to be "saved" from the New World Order only to find themselves enslaved by the devil himself? Don't scoff, it could happen TO YOU! Your only hope is repentance of sin and total forgiveness by Jesus Christ. There is no other way.
Two hundred plus years ago the Communist Conspiracy first showed itself in the formation of the Illuminati in Bavaria in 1776. The organizers (Adam Weishaupt et. al.) decided to play class against class, the employers and the workers, the rich and the poor (the proletariat against the bourgeoisie), and with a twist, the black against the white. They did it then, they are doing it today. Those of us who have been chosen to go through the hell on earth that is to come had better pay close attention.
This pitting of class against class has worked amazingly well for the devil for 6,000 years and he's not about to stop now. He thinks he has a winner and you don't shoot a winning horse until it breaks a leg. Satan will also quickly dispose of those who brought him to earthly power if he perceives they will be any sort of a hindrance to his absolute control (Dan 7:8). My friend Michael first proposed the idea of a double-cross involving antichrist, and I think he may be very close to the truth.
One of the devil's recent tricks, is the arming of American local police forces with "outdated or obsolete" military equipment and then going out and stirring up racial trouble to pit the police against the citizens and vice versa. The police act like old-west cowboys and shoot someone whom they perceive as the bad guy and then the "bad-guys," the citizens who just lost one of their number in an incident they perceive as unjust, are agitated to riot and burn down a few buildings. The police then respond with overwhelming fire-power and to restore order shoot a few of those whom are rising up in riot form. The result is more police power at least until the situation cools.
The eventual end result however, is always a greater loss of individual freedom. When the cycle is perpetuated long enough a dictatorial state emerges and the citizenry (the proletariat), find themselves all wearing shackles and wake as slaves of the state that is controlled by the money-powers (the bourgeoisie) who financed both the initial and the continuing operation. When the tools of despotism are complete, an absolute leader emerges, overthrows the bad guys and the people, sick of trouble enthusiastically embrace HIM. The Generation Chosen to live at this time in history had better wake up.
The present "powers that be" are using such tactics with skill born out of practice, as the same basic plan has been used successfully in Stalin's Russia, Mao's China and Hitler's Germany. The antichrist will play this tune masterfully…
"And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done." (Da 11:36)

“I’m told that in America you can find almost anything you want for, as the Colonists call it, ‘a dime a dozen,’ theories included.” –Lord Lion Treacher, Member, English House of Lords, 1767.
For those of you who are googling the above quotation to check it out, you are wasting your time. I just now made it up to illustrate we need to be very careful about what we read, hear and believe.  In fact you might call it a “false flag” to steer someone to a conclusion they might otherwise not have reached. Theories abound on the internet and each one needs to be carefully evaluated before we adopt it as truth. Let me illustrate one more time.
Concerning “Jade-Helm 15-2015” and later military exercises, some no doubt may be false flags. There are a plethora of theories as to what it is and what is not being planned by those who would be our full-time “nannies” and dictators. We are told by some the exercises are being deliberately mislabeled as cover for an attempt to logistically place troops in critical locations in preparation for either a real or a false-flag event that will be the excuse for martial law in America. There is an abundance of evidence to support that view, a view by the way I believe may well be true at least in its basic form.
Unfortunately the United States government, reaching back to the Civil War, has a history of pulling off false-flag events. A website[1] devoted to that subject tells of a false flag engineered apparently by Abraham Lincoln to make the South fire the first shot thus making them the aggressor, giving the North an excuse to begin the Civil War that resulted in the death of approximately 750,000 people according to new estimates [2] as published by “All the News that Fits.”
Others that come quickly to mind are the sinking of the Maine in Havana Harbor in February of 1898[3] and later the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915[4] both of which were deliberately planned and executed by our own government according to the book “Brotherhood of Darkness” by Dr. Stanley Monteith.[5]
It’s well known and now generally accepted President Franklin Roosevelt had prior knowledge of the impending attack by the Empire of Japan on the sleeping fleet in Pearl Harbor, with even some Roosevelt Democrats acknowledging the fact. So when we hear of the preparations being made by our Army in cooperation with foreign countries to be positioning themselves to occupy America as an all powerful military force, we would be wise to take it seriously and to not only check it out as best we can but to also make plans for personal and family safety. Unfortunately, evil abounds:
“The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.” (Ps 58:3)
There are however other theories as to what is being planned and we want to explore a few of those ideas. First we will look at the facts, then three theories on how this will come about:
Here are the facts: Matthew tells us in chapter 24:8 there will be a time called “the beginning of sorrows.” THEN, after that, (Vs 21) there will be “great tribulation,” but we are in His hand as He shortens the days for the elect (Vs 22). Matthew THEN warns us to be very, very careful for there will be GREAT DECEPTION as a false Christ comes on the scene (Vv 23-26) and many (if not most) will be deceived. Matthew tells us THEN the “rapture/resurrection” will finally take place after that (Vv 29-31). Those are the facts, that’s what the Bible tells us. Our job is to believe it.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,...” (Ho 4:6)
ONE THEORY deals with the ideas of a Swiss called Michael. He theorizes the antichrist will come on the world scene by virtue of being placed in a position of power by the shadowy figures who manipulate from behind a curtain.
Once established however, the earthly “right hand” of the great deceiver Satan, will then turn on the very people who put him in power (the New World Order conspirators) and as the world watches in great “admiration” (horror for some), he will depose, imprison and kill the very ones who just elevated him to his position. Perhaps the movers and shakers of the conspiracy that now threaten America and the rest of the world, will find themselves occupying the FEMA camps they have planned for you and me. But how could he accomplish such a feat?
There is precedent of dictators killing their supporters. Ernst Röhm[6] head of Hitler’s SA (“Sturm Abteilung” composed of millions of members) was murdered in his bed on orders of the Fuhrer because of his fear that Röhm was a threat to Hitler’s new position as head of Germany. Stalin and Mao and other dictators had the same fears and used the same method to eliminate possible competitors once they were firmly established in their new positions of power.
When I first read this theory I thought it had possibilities but puzzled over how one man could accomplish such a feat. Surely, the New World Order crowd is firmly entrenched. They have unlimited amounts of money (they just manufacture money out of the air via the Federal Reserve and other central banks), and have bought and paid for the allegiance of millions of bureaucrats and welfare recipients who blindly follow Obama. “Couldn’t be done,” I thought. No man could pull that off, no matter how smart and charismatic he was. Still puzzled, the theory was more or less shelved in the back of my mind.
Another theory comes along. where some have an idea there is a military coup brewing for the overthrowal of Obama and buddies and the troop placements around the country are there for a purpose, though not what Obama thinks. Here is a paragraph from one such writing by Bix Weir:
“I have long shown how there are Good Guys working to take down the Bad Guys and they have come a long way in the past 10 years. The only way to take the Bad Guys out is to end their control of the monetary system and that is why we are on the very brink of an implosion which should culminate before the year is out. Once that takes place there will be people to blame...especially those tried to take down our government. Yes, they have been around a long time and we have known about them since US Major General, Smedley Butler, spilled the beans in 1933 (the year gold was confiscated).”
Weir goes on to quote Wikipedia where General Butler is described as follows:
“In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations. A final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler's testimony.[7]
The above (General Butler et. al.), and the plot, took place following the veterans march on Washington in July of 1932, led by Butler, demanding bonuses promised them by World War Adjusted Compensation Act, a march that was put down by troops commanded by Generals Douglas MacArthur, and Dwight Eisenhower.
If theories #1 and #2 have at least some credence then the thing to do is to formulate Theory #3:, and I’ll have to take the blame for that.
Assuming theory #2 could be pulled off, it would answer the question of how theory #1 could work. If indeed, the “good guys” do exist (I have serious doubts about that) and if they could actually pull off an overthrowal of the New World Order, then in order for it to work they would have to have a man “in hand” (or possibly one who comes in a faked 2nd Coming, posing as “Messiah”) who would be willing to take control of the government of the United States and bring stability after chaos.
Just as General Smedley Butler was picked by the industrialists to be their man because of his popularity in the failed veterans march, the new man would have to be someone on the scene with a large enough following already, or who would come on the scene with such drama as to be instantly accepted. This coming man would be quickly followed (even worshipped?) by those who now oppose the plot to subjugate the world centered in Washington D.C. “Order out of chaos” is the slogan of the NWO bunch and there would certainly be chaos with a threat of civil war, if indeed the Obama-NWO crowd were somehow suddenly overthrown. The man pulling it off might well be the antichrist who is to come.
Who could the man possibly be that would be strong enough and smart enough to take a firm hand, assume control and bring order out of chaos? I don’t have a clue, and I’m certainly not going to speculate as to who he could be. I do know this. ANTICHRIST IS GOING TO COME, the Bible says he will, he will be indwelt by Lucifer and he will be all powerful:
“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.” (Da 11:36)
Will antichrist show up out of chaos brought about unknowingly by a group of amoral people-animals who are grasping for more and more power? May be. At any rate it all bears careful watching and if events seem to swing that way, at least we will have been warned. I don’t worry about the real Christians because if they read and study their Bibles and are aware of what is really happening, and God says not let your hearts be troubled. (Ph 4:7) I do worry however,…
…about the conservative, moral, patriotic, right-wing of America who deplores what is happening to our country and our way of life. If they persist in being moral, patriotic and conservative, but refuse to be forgiven of sin and saved out of it by coming to Jesus Christ with broken and repentant hearts, they may indeed be LEADING THE PARADE of support when antichrist finally does arrive on the world scene and marches into Washington D.C. to take power.
For many years I was an unsaved, moral, conservative, patriotic right-winger, but if antichrist had come on the scene during that time, there’s a good chance I would have followed him and would have lost my eternal soul.
