Shoes, Bush and Feet in Scripture. ,

Last weekend, President Bush made a surprise visit to Baghdad, sneaking in under cover of darkness, like *ahem* a "Thief in the night", to pay his final respects to a country that he has been allowed to trample into dust. The next day, during a press conference, an Iraqi reporter threw both of his shoes at the president, and was then tackled, arrested, and severely beaten while in custody. His imprisonment has sparked tremendous protest in Iraq, and people throughout the middle east have been praising the shoe thrower for his boldness and bravery.

When Bush dodged the first shoe he came back smiling, and avoided the second shoe easily. He then laughed it off for the media, and said something presidential about how he should expect such things from "a free society". He said he was in no way insulted by the footwear assault. Good job Mr. President. If we take his words at face value, and then move on with our lives, we could judge this situation as an example of Bush's light-heartedness, and love for democracy. But everything about this president's history should warn us against taking anything he says at face value. By digging slightly, you can come to know that the journalist suffered many injuries, including broken bones and internal bleeding after he was arrested in the so-called "free society", with freedom of expression that Bush insists Iraq now is.

My view is that Bush smiled because he knew what would happen to the man after his fifteen seconds of protest, and he delighted in seeing how his own policy of destruction was affecting his victims. I hold this view because George Bush is historically sadistic. He actually delights in the suffering of others. Evidence of this mentality comes from a variety of sources; most notably his ritual of "branding" new fraternal initiates with a burning hot wire coat hanger when he was president of the Yale fraternity, DKE. Another revealing example is Bush's 1999 interview with Tucker Carlson concerning the execution of Karla Faye Tucker. In this interview, Bush was asked about his decision to execute this professed born again Christian, despite her high-profile interview with Larry King just before her death, and the potential backlash among popular opinion. Bush mockingly recounts her begging for her life on that show (even though she didn't), and in that moment, with Bush's guard down, Tucker Carlson and his viewers were exposed to his real self, and his own personal sense of humor. As soon as Bush realized his blunder, he then tried to recover by saying that being governor was a tough job and he had to make tough choices. But the damage was done, and the evidence was on TV. These are just two examples of Bush's cruel heart.

But for me, the irony of this incident is that this event brings feet to the spotlight. What amazing timing, considering what is going on right now in the world, and what the promise of the great day of the Lord is all about. I've been working on a teaching about the feet of the body of Christ for the past few months, and I recently came across an already published and very well written expose by 20th century prophet of God, Bill Britton. This teaching is well worth the time it takes to read, and I will give a link to it at the end of this post. But first, I'd like to share a few of my own thoughts and scriptural connections.

------ The Feet ------

Almost four years ago, when I prayed to God for my eyes to be opened, and I enlisted my life in his service, I was coming before him broken and humbled by the selfish waste of time that my late teens and early 20s were. I felt like the prodigal son at that moment, willing to bargain with my heavenly father for a seat in his house, no matter how meager. In my prayer, I offered to be a janitor for the kingdom of God if he would but accept me, actually imagining myself to be scrubbing heavenly toilets, and seeing that as more valuable than the most comfort filled life that this world had to offer. I knew I was a sinner, and knew that God knew, but I really wanted to serve him anyway. It was probably the most significant prayer of my life. I needed God to be real in my life, and nothing else mattered compared to it. His amazing response to that prayer is the reason I am here now, writing this. But it wasn't an instant response; that happened about two or three days later when I stumbled across the Bush is Antichrist website (but that's another story).

The reason I'm mentioning this prayer is that while I was in a bargaining state, I also said that I'd be willing to be a part of the little toe of the foot of the body of Christ. I said that because at the time, I thought that the feet of the Body of Christ were not very honorable. How little I knew! Through reading the scripture, and listening to the teaching Spirit of God, I have come to understand that the feet of the body of Christ have special honor and purpose.

Those who are a part of the "feet" are those who will be alive on earth, overcoming the evils of a world ripe for judgment when Christ returns to manifest his kingdom. They are the ones who will be perfected in their natural lives, by nothing less than the power of the promise of Christ. I believe it is the "feet" that will bind up the enemies of God, preparing the way for the coming of the Lord. The feet will be anointed by the spirit, and be granted the power to invade and conquer the earth on behalf of Christ, for it is nothing less than the entire earth which is God's full and final "Promised Land". Remember how Jesus's feet were anointed with tears, and again with expensive perfume? Remember how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples clean the evening of the last supper? These were signs of something that was yet to happen in the greater story of Christ and his body. Have the feet been washed or anointed yet? I don't think so, but I believe it's coming, and I sincerely hope to be a part of it.

I believe that Satan imitates God to an obsessive degree. I also believe that there are patterns throughout the universe, and that there is a certain amount of balance and symmetry that pleases God (for why else would he have made things this way?) Paul referred to this phenomenon as "types and shadows". When you read the scriptures on an ongoing basis, you can see these patterns emerge.

One such pattern is in Belshazzar's dream in Daniel chapter 2. This dream ends up being a prophetic vision for the future of empires in the world, up to the point of their destruction and inevitable collapse. It is a vision of a great statue of a man whose head is made of solid gold, his shoulders chest and arms likewise of silver, his belly and upper legs are brass, his lower legs are made of iron, and his feet made of iron mixed with clay. In the dream, King Belshazzar sees a great stone, "not cut by human hands" that soars through heaven and smashes the feet of this statue, causing the whole thing to crumble and topple. It is upon this great stone that a new kingdom is built in place of the one that is destroyed. Daniel reveals to the king that this statue represents great empires, from Babylon through to the final empire that is trampling the world when God comes back to judge it and destroy it's hold over the earth.

In interpreting the dream, Daniel tells the king that it's talking about the future. It is a dream of a timeline, which begins with:

1. King Belshazzar of Babylon as the head of Gold. This gold represents a majesty and purity that gets lost over time, as the value of the body diminishes further down.

-> Likewise, the body of Christ began with the head, Jesus, who was perfect in his purity, like gold. So we have the starting point of the body of empire, and the body of Christ beginning with a head.

2. An inferior kingdom that will replace Babylon rises up second (Medo-Persia). This is represented by the arms and chest of silver.

-> In the body of Christ, it was the early, spirit filled church of Pentecost which rose up in place of Jesus. It had power and a strong anointing of the spirit, but was still populated by men and women who made mistakes. It was not as pure and superior as Jesus.

3. A third kingdom comes to replace the chest of silver. This belly of Brass (Alexander's Greece) is also inferior in value to the first two, but it shines almost as brightly as the head of gold, appearing more valuable than it is.

-> Introduce the Roman Catholic church, established by the counsel of Nicea, it rises to replace the underground, power-filled early days church. With all of it's government-backed power, and it's tendency for grand , shining, and magnificent symbols of it's divine authority, (combined with a staggering collection of worldly treasures), this historical part of the body of Christ reminds me most of a belly of brass.

4. A fourth kingdom rises up that is like iron. This is represented by two legs. It is very strong, and very fierce, but not very rich in it's own way. The upper parts of the body give this part it's value. So was Rome: a thief of Greek culture, a strong and uncompromising conqueror.

-> Likewise, (after Rome fell) in the dark ages, and during the reformation: The church split (like two legs), and strengthened it's roots in the world. It also took part in several ugly and militant centuries. This was a time filled with trials, accusations, crusades, witch hunts and inquisitions. Countless tribes were slaughtered in the Americas in the name of Christianity; their cultures were destroyed. The church was on a mission to move and conquer, much like the Roman empire. There was as much resemblance between this church and Jesus as there is between Iron and Gold. Because of that, the power and Holy Ghost manifestations known by the early church were but distant memories of glory days. Men of faith who knew and served Christ lived in the church at that time (as throughout all stages of this body), but they were often persecuted by the established order. Martin Luther and Saint Frances of Assisi are good examples of these men.

5. Finally, the feet of this statue are partly of Iron and partly of clay. As far as metal goes, it's pretty much worthless: no comparison between the feet and the head; no logical reason that these feet should be entrusted to support the weight of such a large, and strangely arranged statue, but they stand firm, until God acts.

Just the same, when Rome fell, there weren't many other major world empires. England expanded her reach throughout Asia and Africa, but never rose to the stature of Rome. likewise, France and Spain attempted to permanently spread their influence abroad, but weren't able. In the 20th century the British empire fell apart (in part thanks to the power of the spirit of Ghandi, who I believe is a forerunner of the feet of Christ). Meanwhile, empirically minded nations such as Russia, Germany, Japan, and America attempted to rise to the top of the world. All have fallen but America, which could be falling even now (because God may be acting right before our eyes).

My point is that a bumbling, sadistic, fool like George Bush is in fact representing, in our day, the kingship of a long and sordid tradition of great empire kingdoms throughout history. He has about as much structural integrity in his leadership as Iron-and-Clay feet have at the base of such a large statue. But yet, somehow, here we are, America is still an occupying empirical country unchallenged by the global community, the Economic heartbeat of our country determines that of the global economy, for better or for worse. We have about 5% of the world's population, yet we consume about 1/4 of all the world's resources. Against all logic this arrangement exists in the world today: somehow, some way, it has managed to stand so far. I believe this is because God has allowed it to be so, and is getting ready to destroy it in front of everyone. I believe that modern, institutional churches are in the same position. But God has something else in mind. The chains of empire are about to be taken from off of the backs of all oppressed people because that is God's plan, and the time for that deliverance is now.

The feet of the kingdom of men are about to be crushed by the kingdom of God. The feet of the body of Christ complete the body, and connect the head to the earth once again. People living on earth will be selected from the earth to be used by God to destroy this lineage of empire. Just like the mountain that is cut from the earth without human hands, and is hurled at the feet of this statue. Only by God could something like this be done, but by God this will certainly be done! Praise the Lord!

Please press on to read what Bill Britton has to say about the feet of the body of Christ in prophecy. I agree with his message, he says it very well, and he cites many scriptures throughout his teaching about the feet to back it up. You can find it in this link. May you be blessed and inspired, and may the Lord reveal to you the truth of this matter.

Is Prophecy Prophetic?

Amos:3:7: Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, unless he has revealed his secret to his servants the prophets.

The word Prophecy means both to foretell as well as to tell forth.
1. the foretelling or prediction of what is to come.
2. something that is declared by a prophet, esp. a divinely inspired prediction, instruction, or exhortation.
3. a divinely inspired utterance or revelation

So we understand that prophecy does not necessarily mean that it is foretelling it could mean it is a divine revelation of wisdom or insight, but it also was most certainly used by the prophets of God to tell before hand those things that were and are yet to come. As the scripture says in Amos, God will do nothing until He reveals it to His servants the prophets. The scripture is full of predications. Many modern "Scholars" who profess to be wise I believe became fools (Romans 1:22). We have what is known as the "School of Higher Criticism", that claim there were at least two Isaiahs, and after reading their discussion it would seem that their whole basis for making that statement is because Isaiah was too accurate, therefore one of them must have been much latter. This was never what the early church believed nor did the Jews of old, also Jesus quotes from several sections of the book as though they are the same. Some of this controversy arises because of Isaiah 45:1-3 Here we see the Prophet calling Cyrus (Cyrus the Great) by name over 120 years before he was even born. In Daniel we see the fulfillment of this scripture and even though Daniel is only seeing a few hours into the future, he is foretelling what was about to happen to Belshazzar King of Babylon Dan. 5: 22-31 The famous "Hand writing on the wall" story. Isaiah in his prophecy actually describes how the city would fall. Cyrus damned up the Euphrates River that ran under the wall of Babylon, then he broke through the iron bars that went into the water, this allowed his armies to enter the city under the wall.

Some prophecies are very specific and have to do with one particular thing, others are done as types and shadows, showing us an image or a pattern Heb: 8.5. Remember the story of how Isaac was born. This was a foreshowing of the birth of Jesus. It was a miraculous birth, both Abraham and Sarah were too old to have a child but God brought forth His promise. Then again when God called on Abraham to sacrifice his only son and then the Lord provided a substitute lamb that was caught in the thicket. This was a picture of God's plan that He would not withhold His only begotten Son and that Jesus was the Lamb of God, the substitute for our sins. The name Isaac means laughs or DELIGHT, when Yeshuah (Jesus) was baptized by John and the heavens opened and the Spirit descended on Him and a voice was heard saying " This is my beloved Son in whom I am DELIGHTED" A reference to Isaac.

Now there is yet another form of prophecy. I like to call it a wheel within a wheel. We have all heard the expression that history repeats itself. This is true, we see the same patterns happening over and over. Eccl:1:9: "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun". I believe that Ezekiel's wheels are describing this very thing;(Ez.1 is not flying saucers as some claim) The wheels are cycles within cycles within cycles yet moving forward. The four faces that are described are the four standards of the banner tribes of Israel as they wondered through the wilderness they helped provide direction to the people. Ephraim, carried the Ox banner; Dan, the Eagle; Judah, the Lion; and Ruben, the Face of a Man. It is also thought they represent the four gospels that provide the path for us and give us light for our journey. Mathew seems to portray the Royal line and Christ as King therefore represented by the Lion. Mark portrays Christ as the servant and the sacrifice and is thus the Ox. Luke shows us Christ "the Son of Man" Yeshuah as a man and so of course this is "the Face of a Man". John reveals Yeshuah as God, One and the same as the Father, so we have an Eagle that can sore in the heavens.
We see the same images again in Revelation before the throne of God Rev.4:7: And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

Many people thought that Adolph Hitler was "The Antichrist" (the son of perdition from 2Thes.2). He seemed to fulfill much of the image of evil, but apparently not all things had yet been fulfilled. So the wheel went around again and another Antichrist was raised up in the person of George W. Bush. Many in the 911 truth movement have pointed out how Bush has followed in the same pattern as Hitler. Hitler started a fire in the Reichstag and blamed it on communist terrorists and executed a young retarded Polish man and started an unprovoked war against Poland while using these things to pass the Enabling Act which took away many of the rights of the German people. The World Trade Center was Bush's Reichstag giving him the ability to invade Iraq and the Patriot Act has taken away our rights. If you remember there was another before them that also played the same deception. Nero set fire to Rome and blamed it on the Christians.

Scripture has several levels of meaning, first would be its literal meaning, next you would have a spiritual meaning then you may have hidden messages and meaning, not to mention the the Hebrew letter meanings and their numerical values.

Now with this ground work we can begin to see what Daniel and Revelation are saying to us.
The idea has been presented that Daniel was not a prophet because it is only showing an account of history and that his Book was not counted with the prophets. It was also claimed that Daniel's word about the Abomination that makes Desolate was completely fulfilled with Antiochus Dan. 9:27 and 11:31. Antiochus ruled from aprox 175 to 164BC. Daniel's powers of foretelling are only called into question here if you subscribe to the critics that claim Daniel was written by someone else and much latter than what is claimed and believed by Orthodoxy; that is aprox 527BC. Thus you do not believe that Daniel was written by Daniel. This is a matter of faith, and not of fact. You would also have to believe that Yeshuah was wrong, deceived or lying, and/or you would also have to discount the Gospels. While it is accurate to interpret Daniel's prophecies as having "A" fulfillment in Antiochus It is obviously not "THE" fulfillment. Mt:24:15: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)" also Mk 13:14. This verse makes two things very clear, 1. Yeshuah calls Daniel a Prophet and 2. He is warning those that he was speaking to to watch for the an event yet to come.

In this same manner, "The Book of Revelation" and "Daniel" should not be seen as just a sequence of events but as a series of patterns to watch for that lead to an ultimate fulfillment. Revelation was not meant to be easily understood so don't buy any "made easy" books. It is written in code and took some understanding of the Prophets before John. It is also not meant to be understood as literal but as word pictures understood in the Spirit, as it was written in the Spirit Rev.1:10 "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11: Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book,"

In Rev. 13:17-18 we see the use of numerology in describing the Beast. We are exhorted to use wisdom and understand the meaning of the number. Letters were used to represent numbers so you could evaluate the number value of names.Using this system, it is quite probable that the most direct reference for that time was Caesar Nero, but George W. Bush also fits many numerology formulas Is he the final Antichrist? We shall soon find out. It is also important to understand the spirit of antichrist may be what is in the heart of a man. Six is the number for man, and three is the number for divinity. Christ was God making himself man, Antichrist is man making himself god. The mark in the forehead represents who you serve with your mind (soul) and the mark in the hand represents the service of your body. Who do you serve with your body and soul?

End of the End Times?

The first "antichrist" described by Scripture was in the Old Testament. This was Antiochus Epiphanes (left). It was about him that "Daniel" wrote: "He shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall make sacrifice and offering cease; and in their place shall be an abomination that desolates, until the decreed end is poured out upon the desolation. (Dan 9:27; New Revised Standard Version)

The "abomination" which "desolated" was the statue of Zeus which Antiochus had erected in the Jewish temple.

The Book of Daniel contains a style of literature known as "apocalyptic." The same style is also found in the Book of Revelation. Apocalyptic is the literature of crisis. Suffering people always turn to future hope in an effort to ameliorate their current travails. When reading apocalyptic literature, we need to understand the worldview of people suffering oppression, hardship, or persecution. Biblical examples: Daniel was written with the aim of comforting and supporting the faith of those suffering under Antiochus Epiphanes; Revelation was composed close to the year 70 CE to assist those who were suffering under the persecution of Nero. What these writings share is the idea that people were to look to the future rather than now for the day of their deliverance.

What then is "prophecy?" The dictionary says: 1: an inspired utterance of a prophet 2: the function or vocation of a prophet ; specifically : the inspired declaration of divine will and purpose 3: a prediction of something to come Most people focus on the third definition.

The primary definition of "apocalypse" is: "One of the Jewish and Christian writings of 200 BCE to 150 CE marked by pseudonymity, symbolic imagery, and the expectation of an imminent cosmic cataclysm in which God destroys the ruling powers of evil and raises the righteous to life in a messianic kingdom.

It is worthy to note, in English versions of the Bible, the Book of Daniel is found among the Prophets. In the Hebrew Bible, the Tanakh, Daniel is found in the third division, the Writings (Kethuvim.) The editors of the Tanakh did not consider Daniel a "Prophet" but something else. This is correct, because Daniel is not prophetic literature, but apocalyptic. The first six chapters of the book contain stories of the dream interpreter and faithful servant of G-d in difficult times. Chapters 7-12 contain the apocalyptic visions written under the name of "Daniel" during difficult days. These "visions" are simply intended to show that faithful men and women that, in spite of the power of their enemies, G-d was still the king of the universe, and that they need be unafraid.

The early Christians were mainly Jews who were familiar with their Scripture. They were people who found themselves in similar straights as their forebearers in the time of "Daniel." The genius in the Book of Revelation is that it was written in the same style as Daniel, but adapted to the author's time and place. Here the evil tyrant was Nero (left) and the rest of the "prophecies" were but thinly veiled social commentary. The original readers of Revelation understood the content in the context of their world.
With this in mind, the Book of Revelation should not be seen as a book of prophecies. It is evident down through history that much mischief has been made of this book when viewed this way. In today's world, not only is it stupid to see the Book of Revelation as containing prophecies for our time, it is also dangerous.
Although "evangelical/fundamentalist" branches like to believe they are the only true Christians in the world, thankfully, there is no one "Christianity" today. By the time the full consequences of their theology are made manifest, Nero down in Hell will be laughing at their expense. It will be the responsibility of the remaining branches of Christianity to denounce Dispensationalism as a heresy and engage in appropriate damage control.
For the last eight years we have endured yet another "antichrist" in the form of President George W. Bush. He was a "Christian antichrist;" therefore most of the evangelical/fundamentalist crowd did not recognize the hour of his coming. As of now, it appears the time of Antichrist Bush is drawing to a close. For those who were not deceived, they may rejoice that they have lived and remained faithful to the end. Yet it can not be emphasized enough that the kingdom Jesus spoke of was not of this world. The kingdom is within. Therefore, don't go looking for New Jerusalems to be dropping out of the sky.
The end of the end times can be a bit of a let down; especially if you're looking for some kind of cosmic justice. Perhaps a new revelation is needed.
Let me offer this. Daniel and Revelation were written during and about the times their authors lived in. They were written in a style that is vague and hard to understand today. A revelation written today will not need to be written in the same way. A revelation today will not gain immediate acceptance, but gain credence over time.
Here is what I propose to reveal. The United States is an empire. It is presumed to have a democratic form of state, but this is questionable. For the last eight years the United States Empire has been ruled by an idiot who is likewise the enemy of G-d and the entire human race. I speculate that he will meet his doom from alcohol-related causes. Those who were faithful and resisited Bush's evil will be rewarded by inheriting the world he created; they will have to make the best of it.
G-d save us all.
Amen.

Romans 13 in the news: Manipulation and Manifestation.



The above video is at least a year old, but it's a chilling expose' of Bush's Department of Homeland Security approaching clergymen across the country, and training them to use their propaganda, mixed with Romans 13 as a way to pacify their congregations in the event of Martial Law. The preachers are being prepared to minimize dissent by painting any declaration of Martial Law, for any reason, to be the action of God's appointed leader, whom they should trust.

This is one of many warning signs that the Bush administration fully plans to still be in power when the nation descends into a new level of chaos, and that they have no problem with exploiting God and Christ to obtain their empirical goals. The "Posse Comitatus" law, mentioned in the video, which strictly forbids US troops from policing American streets has been recently undone, by the deployment of a brigade of troops who are fresh out of the Iraq war-zone to a military base in Georgia...their mission objectives are explicitly to put a lid on domestic dissent "just in case" there is a reason for martial law to be declared. Troops were sent to New Orleans after Katrina, and local police forcefully removed guns from citizens, including an old woman, that was tackled by a 250lb police officer. Strange policing actions also took place from the military and local police during the disastrous floods in the Mississippi region this summer.

These are localized practice-runs for a national transformation to martial law. Law Enforcement and Military are both working to train their people to disarm and consider all citizens to be potential enemies of the state. That's the sort of mentality they had in communist Russia. This is all very real, and painfully close. Annon recently shared this mp3 link to a very interesting radio broadcast from John Stadtmiller that paints an eerily possible picture of what could happen between now and the inauguration. It's well worth a listen, if you haven't heard it yet, you can come back to read the rest.

The problem we face, of course, is the fact that Romans 13 seems to support the idea of Christians submitting to ruling kings and governments without exception. Is that really the case, or is there something deeper going on?

Romans 13:1-5
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
By isolating the first 5 verses of this chapter, clergy can advise submission to even the most despotic, and lawless of "rulers". Logic would suggest that only the cunning and deceptive minds of despotic rulers would think to use this passage as a way to pacify the masses. When we are interpreting scripture, it is always important for us to remember context. This is not limited to a chapter, or a book, but the entirety of Scriptures works together to preach one great message. There are paradoxes littered throughout, but no real contradictions. That statement is much easier said than learned, but it is true.

It must be established that our allegiance is to God first, and then to the "ruling authorities" that God has sanctioned. If our earthly leaders are in defiance to God, we must stand strong in the light that has been given to us by Christ, and be prepared to die, if necessary, for the sake of our faith. There is no compromise to that order of authority. When we are told to serve our earthly leaders (or ourselves, or anything) above our heavenly king, we are being lied to by a very old, very sinister fallen angel who twists scriptures to promote his own agenda.

In the desert, when he tempted Christ, the Devil offered to give Jesus dominion over all the kingdoms of the world, if Christ would only bow before him. This temptation demonstrates his ultimate desire to divert people's worship of God. I have no doubt that Lucifer was whispering into the minds of the mob that judged Jesus. John 19:15 reveals this twisted reasoning:

(The mob) shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!"
"Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked.
"We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.
Romans 13, then is a very dangerous passage, if and when it is misinterpreted.

Verse 1 says that "every soul must be subject to the governing authorities", which implies that if a leader does not honor the laws that he has sworn to uphold, that leader is in violation to Romans 13. Only people who violate the law have any reason to fear the law. The Antichrist is described in scripture as being a very boastful, strong and fierce leader who "seeks to change the times and laws" in Daniel 7:25. He is called "The Lawless one" in several other prophetic references. The fact remains on display, that while Bush swore to uphold the constitution on inauguration day, he has actually moved in strong, strident steps to dismantle that constitution (which is the "governing authority" that is above him). Our rights and liberties have been stolen right before our very eyes. Sainthood: the compulsion to love your neighbors and to love your enemies, is now illegal according to the Patriot Act.

I see the constitution as something that God has sanctioned, because the heart of this governing document is wise, and just and fair.

The severe partisanship of the religious right, on the other hand, is not very fair. Think about this: Were leaders of the religious right citing Romans 13 in defense of Bill Clinton? Most pastors actually encouraged people's loathing of Clinton...whipping them up to a partisan frenzy that helped deliver the 2000, and 2004 presidential elections to George Bush. There is a massive anti-government, anti-tax sentiment that partially defines the religious right, and this sentiment runs completely contrary to Roman's 13, not just in verses 1-5, but the entire chapter.

Romans 13:6-7
For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
I believe that Paul is actually warning us not to engage in violent resistance to tyranny, for he knew that the Christians in Rome, and true followers of Christ in the future would be persecuted without cause, just as Jesus was. That persecution can stand as a testimony, as long as we remain blameless, refraining from any evil, even in our resistance to tyranny. This principle was Echoed by the apostle Peter, in the other, oft-interpreted teaching from 2 Peter 2:13-25.

We are commanded to "Bless those that curse us, bless and do not curse". Paul also taught, "Do not confront evil with evil, but overcome evil with good". That is one of the ultimate expressions of self denial. I don't think any of us would have the strength or the will to behave that way without the spirit of Christ within us. But we can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us.

Dick Chaney is on the receiving end of that sword wielded by the governing authority of the law of the land. In the past three days, he was indicted in a tiny Texas town. This is a time of consequences, a time to pay the piper. The problem is, the Bush Administration is very dangerous, especially when cornered. Justice will be served, if not sooner, certainly later...(and not much later at that).



Romans 13:8-14
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

Gospel of John (part 2)

By popular demand (and a successful search on Google Video). I present the second installment of the Gospel of John film. I would encourage all who have been moved by the accurate account of the most poetic gospel to purchase a copy of the film. I know it's available at amazon.com here.

The Gospel of John (Part 1).



I love this film. It is a very heartfelt and precise reproduction of the entire gospel of John. We are all feeling the oppressive weight of these times, dragging us down. Watching this film is a refreshing reminder of how the world is supposed to be, destined to be. Come Lord Jesus!

5 Dollar/10 Dollar

If anyone has the 5 or 10 dollar bills please check it out...I have two of them watermarked and did a comparison and one of them is NOT of abe lincoln (looked like dave rockfeller). The other one was a 10 dollar bill and check on the ones that is supposedly hamilton. (Please correct me on this one) The image does not look like hamilton. I have seen the 20 dollar bill not only from youtube but also from the ones I withdrew...keep that in mind that they are usually mocking us...I try to find a way to upload it on this site...

Gog and Magog

Ok, here is my post. Remember, these are MY refelctions and are not meant to be taken as the last word.

I believe that George Walker Bush is the world leader who Ezekiel the prophet symbolically names Gog from the land of Magog. I believe he will pull (Meshech can mean to pull in Hebrew) and draw (Tubal can mean to draw out in Hebrew) the world into the final war to end all wars, which will be followed shortly after by the second coming of Jesus Christ. While the story of Gog and Magog is an ancient one, dealing with power, conquest, and the oppression of the weak, I believe the move towards the final confrontation and destruction of Gog, described in the Book of Ezekiel and the Book of Revelation, is currently under way. I believe the war of Gog from Magog began in 1991 when Bush’s father, George HW Bush attacked Saddam Hussein in Gulf War I, and shortly after proclaimed the creation of a New World Order. However I believe his son, George, will take on the final personality of Gog and will consign, by his actions, the Beast of Imperialism into what the Book of Revelation calls the lake of fire forever, signaling the arrival of the Kingdom of God in its full majesty, what has traditionally been called the Second Coming of Jesus the Christ.

This New World Order that Bush senior referred to is a Satanic/Corporate/Fascist organization, often called the Illuminati, that is designed to enslave the majority of humanity and establish a Kingdom of Some Humans (elites, the so-called Illuminati Blood Line, etc.) as gods (the fulfillment of the prophecy encoded in the story of Adam and Eve, where the fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil makes one equal to god). For a further explanation of this, see http://marcellusunleashed.blogspot.com/

This Kingdom’s primary legend centers around the Grail and the Grail Bloodline, made famous in the book The DaVinci Code. In opposition stands God’s vision of a Kingdom in which God re-creates humanity in the image of his divine son, Jesus, making all human beings divine. As such, the NWO is the biblical Anti-Christ (against Christ), the Final Beast of Revelation, Gog and Magog. It is called by all three names in the New Testament. I believe the incarnate symbols of this reality are the person, George Bush, and the nation he rules, America: Gog from Magog. This essay will not focus directly on the details and history of the NWO, but instead on the identity of Gog and Magog, and some possible implications for the future. If you wish to research the phenomenon of the New World Order further, I suggest

http://www.threeworldwars.com/new-world-order.htm, or the numerous works of David Icke.

I believe that the final phase of the war of Gog from Magog began on 9-11 2001 with the World Trade Center attack in New York, continued in Afghanistan and Iraq, but its deadly conclusion has not yet happened. I believe this will commence when Israel attacks and occupies the remaining Palestinian territories with the approval of America, and help from NATO.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7837

This appears to be under way as I write this essay. I believe that shortly after that a conflict will emerge in the Mid East region between NATO, the Shanghai Cooperative (China, Russia and many of the former Soviet Republics, India, North Korea-the Biblical Kings of the East), Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, a coalition of Arab States; in other words all the nations of the earth will gather in the Mid East for a final battle that has traditionally been called the Battle of Armageddon. This will not be a war of a “good side” versus a “bad side” but a war of dominion and conquest as the Kings of the World fight for their share of the New Empire, the NWO. In the end, Gog from Magog (Bush) will lead all the nations of the earth to their doom, what is symbolically referred to in Revelation as the Lake of Fire. I believe this war can still be mitigated or avoided all together if conditions change, and conditions have changed somewhat. I believe that the prophecy has been delayed at least 6 years because of the prayers, works, and sacrifices of truly religious people in this country and around the world, and the sacrifice of innocents (martyrs) the world over through whom God has chosen to reveal his goodness. God has allowed many to suffer in order to wake up the rest of us to the colossal evil that we all allowed to grow unchecked by our greed and selfishness, and to give us a little more time to have a change of heart and mind. The poor in such diverse places as Africa, Palestine, India, Thailand, the Americas, and other desperate places around the world, embody the spirit of the two witnesses from Revelation, and I believe have been used by God to delay the inevitable. However, our time may be running out.

I believe the Gog Magog prophecy does not refer to a direct invasion of the Zionist Nation-State of Israel by a country such as Russia as many so-called prophecy experts have claimed. However, Gaza and the West Bank will be occupied by NATO to herald the impending catastrophe. The reason I believe this to be true is because the language in the prophecy is highly symbolic, and if Ezekiel was speaking of a direct invasion of a restored nation of Israel by a Northern Power, then I believe Ezekiel would speak more literally and directly. For example, Ezekiel states that Gog attacks the mountains of Israel, yet falls on the mountains and in the open fields. Also, Gog’s horde is buried in a field, and yet the birds eat the flesh of kings and generals. These statements are contradictory, and must then be interpreted figuratively or they make no sense. Also, there are real questions among Torah believing Jews whether the Zionist State of Israel breaks the covenant established at Mount Sinai, and should be peacefully dismantled at once.

http://www.jewsagainstzionism.com/.

The site referenced, and others like it, raise the possibility that the Zionist State was established by the NWO to be a counterfeit of the real Israel. The confusion caused by the Zionist Counterfeit could be used to fool honest religious people around the world into believing that God had delivered Israel to the Jews as a divine promise, and that he has ordained that they destroy their enemies. As a result, the Zionist State may actually be in league with the imperial NWO, Gog from Magog, and therefore would be working against the God they claim gave them their land. Paradoxically, this may also mean that the Palestinians are one representative of the Israel that is attacked by the hordes of Gog in the prophet's account, but there are many others.

Gog’s attack as presented by Ezekiel the prophet on Israel, for the reasons cited above, appears to be symbolic of a wider attack against God’s people around the world: the weak, the powerless, the poor, and the outcast which will lead to Gog’s ruin, and the final ruin of all kingdoms and empires forever. I believe this is also symbolized and foreshadowed in the story of the Exodus, when Pharaoh enslaves and oppresses the powerless children of Israel, and they are redeemed by faith in the power and majesty of their God, who creates his people at the foot of a mountain (Sinai) in order to create a powerful mountain of people who can war in Spirit and Truth against the Anti-Christ systems of empire which oppress and devour the powerless of the world. The culminating event of Gog;s war may have been foreshadowed thousands of years ago in Egypt, and may well happen in our lifetime.

The operating plan of the Illuminati, symbolized as Gog and his coalition, is to destroy, seize, and sell entire countries and people’s (mountains) to corporate interests, and bludgeon the people with a repressive police state, with a never ending war on terrorism as its excuse for existence. For a full description of this phenomenon and how it has been developed and perfected in America, and exported around the world, see Naomi Klein’s fantastic book, The Shock Doctrine. http://www.naomiklein.org/shock-doctrine

The goal of Gog (George Bush) and his coalition will be to turn the entire world into a corporate police state, herding the poor, outcast, and marginalized into massive ghettos and work camps, the likes of which have never been seen before, and never will be again, all in the name of corporate profit, naked power, and the hegemony of the NWO and their clients. The final war will take place when the coalition of Gog turns their “swords” on each other, perhaps because of treachery, fear, but most likely greed. It appears it will happen after some massive sign by God that he is coming in power, perhaps a massive earthquake, but this may be symbolic as well. While the war will have physical manifestations, it will be a spiritual war of light versus darkness, good versus evil, flesh versus spirit. True Israel around the world will be empowered by God with the weapons of Word and Spirit in order to fight the darkness, as they have always done throughout history, but the power of empire always has prevailed or retreated to plan its next attack. However, now the Holy Mountain of Israel, which is symbolic of God’s people, will spread with power throughout the whole earth, and overcome completely those who hate them: the kings, despots, and religious hypocrites that comprise the Babylonian/NWO Imperial System. Fallen, Fallen is Babylon the Great!

The Deception and Disinformation Exposed

The truth about World War 3 and the NWO



There has been a lot of deception mixed in with truth being spread around by the Zeitgeist films The first one and now the new one called Zeitgeist Addendum. The have very good information on 911 and the Federal Reserve and even the deception of the religious systems, but beware. These videos are very well done which shows that they are not amateur, and were obviously funded by powerful groups with there own agenda
Here are some good videos that unmask the sources.

Zeitgeist Addendum = NWO Propaganda

Disassociating from the Establishment

Many so-called religions have made the dangerous decision to mix their faith in with politics, thereby profiting from the people. The so-called nations who claim to be Muslim (i.e. Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc) or Christian (i.e. USA) have used dangerous, ideological actions of aggression and evil- while claiming to be holy and perfect nations. How can anyone claim to be affiliated in a particular religion based on love, while they are condemning others and even using that condemnation as an attempt to justify their own position? Why would being in a church on Sunday, and showing everyone how sanctimonious you are, seeking the praise, respect and regard of people...why would this be considered a path to holiness, when it actually causes people to become morally bankrupt (which the Bible warns about)?

In order to be a part of your faith (Christian, Muslim, Judaism) you must not associate with any sorts of particular party as part of man or serve false gods or wear any idols. In theory the ones who were part of the religious system (the real ones) were not part of the establishment and the only one they should follow is God. How has this world gone so wrong that many actually believe that being in a particular party will grant you to be part of God's people?

When Jesus was being tempted, the Devil offered him great power, to rule all of the nations of the world, if only Jesus would worship the Devil…of course that offer was refused. The reason is that no amount of power in the world was worth sacrificing his allegiance to his Father. Jesus said later, “What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet loses his soul?” Yet in this country, religious right groups led by men such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are engaged in a massive, and ruthless campaign to take political power into their own hands...and George Bush has in fact given leaders like them “a seat at the table”, holding weekly phone conferences with them, and inviting them to the White House on occasion. This power-hunger works not only to serve the Republican party but also has acted as a means of destroying Christianity, which has been an igniter for the other religions: Islam and Judaism.

They act as though God and their political agenda were in cahoots. As though God were giving his stamp of approval on anything and everything they do, regardless of whether it was based on fear or love. How dare they commit such abomination?! As if they are an exclusive private party that knows god had supposed to have a relationship with the lord. In other words "$@% you, you're not worthy and we are the best." This elitist, careless, blasphemous mindset is what has helped to build the New World Order. This effect of the religious right is shown also from other posts that they have the one world government and one "religion" under the guise of Christianity. This agenda in no way serves Christ, or honors his teaching…instead it serves power and money and the all seeing eye of Lucifer. One simply needs to read what Christ taught to see this. Modern Christian doctrines and mainstream teachings and interpretations are more pornography for consumers to buy and producers to profit from, instead of anything that would help the poor and persecuted.

Seeing such shows like Left Behind, Veggie Tales, and FOX (beast) claim to use Christian values and the lord's name is BLASPHEMY! If you recognize that, you should confront it. “Be not deceived, God will not be mocked, Every person will reap what they sew”. Watching Beast News I have seen guests who use a cross to show their holiness. Ann Coulter and Danny Bonnaduce were a few people who play as this type of victim of the persecution complex. Even though they are paid to lie in public with their fabrication against the 9/11 truth! Do not let this fool you, the source of their tactics can be known from their fruits.

Veggie tales is a children's show on NBC that is usually educational or supposedly educational for young kids and teaches about Gods meaning. It consists of the typical fruits and veggies, and deals with Christian values…but what type of Christian values do they serve? One of the articles shown in the Landover Baptist church admits that veggie tales were such an abomination that it is more about getting money instead of values where you can get it for free like the bible. Aside of their sexual innuendoes that looked like more of an adult toy instead of being a toy for children what type of message are they sending out? So what kind of values does it show with sexual innuendoes? “The Veggie Tales corporation is watering down scripture and promoting a lack of respect for the sanctity of God's Holy Word by producing videos where a talking head of lettuce with a New York accent skips through uncomfortable Bible passages in order to make a story more appealing to children.” I have never heard anything about them discussing real issues like love, compassion, loving one another regardless of sex, orientation, skin color, or other cornerstones of the philosophy of what Jesus says. I think in my point of view something about this Veggie Tales does not take the Lord very seriously and does not seem to show Christian ways even though it seems Christian on the surface. Other media like the Left Behind series is known to be blasphemous.

Left Behind is another blasphemous show consists of Todd Friel and Kirk Cameron. Both claim that they are trying to convert people to serve God. This was based off from a book that is more of a science fiction with spins on rapture and certain characters who are using personality tests which consists of occultic practices. Since the Zionists controls the media the bible rejects the pre Tribulation to Post tribulation myths. Such things use prophecy (but twist them, and so use false prophecy).These deviancies are known to dumb down subjects and make them part of the matrix. Think about it…if you are raised on lies that say they are truths, you will never know the nourishment that real truth gives…and you will remain complacent, unaffected and unmotivated on a diet of false truth. Examples of those are not only typical but common among the “herds”. By withholding the person's name and location I have found a blog written in a way with the illusion of the left/right/liberal/conservative viewpoints.

One of the most illogical and ungodly garbage is known as "Can a Christian be a Democrat?" Now what kind of condescending post is that? How can a Christian post a drivel that has nothing to do with Christianity! Reading along there were all of these small mini subjects that are less relevant to what is going on around the world. As if subjects like abortion and gays are more important to that post rather than greed and not turning to your fellow man. As I read about his blog it praises about another four more years with the antichrist (Bush). Every subject consists of what the democrats are for and republicans are against. It is considered preposterous and foolish to think with that attitude. One of the smoking guns here was he claims to say about homosexuality and abortion to but there are no cites or references that he can back it up:


Example 1:
2. Gay Marriage (Democrats for, Republicans against)- this is a difficult issue to understand when it comes to equal rights. The bible is obviously against all forms of homosexuality and polygamy, no matter how badly we might want it to be otherwise.
Government has adopted marriage in recognition of a civil act between one man and one woman, and therefore has no ethical right to manipulate it from its origin. This is another issue, despite indecisiveness, that bears no middle ground. Would it be politically correct to have "Pedophilia Pride Day," if it's "just who they are" and it's "beautiful?"
"The bible is obviously against all forms of homosexuality and polygamy, no matter how badly we might want it to be otherwise. The Holy Bible is written in black and white and God's laws are non-negotiable. In a political sense, marriage should not make two people superior over anyone else." "Well, the only difference between domestic partnership and marriage is that domestic partnership does not infiltrate God's law. It denies moral legitimacy to those who refuse the natural law of marriage, and this upsets them. "

The hypocrisy of reading and analyzing that portion of the post, it never shows anything what it says or ever referenced from the bible. Mormons are allowing polygamy and certain Mormons who are practicing it shows they are against what it says on the bible. Questioning his logic, denying the right of people's love and condemning them for loyalty instead of being alone. Once again it falls within the fallacies pedophilia pride day which has nothing to do with gay marriage.

Example 2: I cannot verify this personally, but I have heard (from a reliable source) that from the official ACLU website, there were instructions on how to get a young boy into bed with you. Now, if you are a Christian Democrat (still keep in mind that we're not all perfect), is this the kind of organization and are these the kind of people that you want to walk hand-in-hand with to the voting ballots? When we vote, we usually don't get all that we hope for. Each of us are caught in a "pickle" of balancing the goods with the bads. As a republican, I know (less my preferences) that no matter what republican I vote for, that I will not have something this absurd on my hands. Democrats, give me one example of republicans being so disgustingly absurd as this.

This does not make any sense at all. If he proved to me what reliable source he is talking about, that is called pedophilia and it has nothing to do with the ACLU. It does not make any sense about voting ballots. What is it about the voting ballots: if you vote republican or democrats it will be better or worse…? The truth is that the elite chooses who will run as president for the bidding and it has been that way for a least a century. This blog has proven to me with this type of logic he is still stuck in the left/right matrix. With the so called Muslim nations like Iran would they do the same thing like the so called Christians?

In the documentary made by the CBC called "Gay in Iran" there is an approximation 7% of Iranians who are considered gay or living in a gay lifestyle. Illuminati president Ahmadinejad claimed statements such as there are no homosexuals in Iran. Such preposterous statement from a man who claims to be Muslim or living in a Muslim state. Punishment for Iranians being homosexuals in public will consequently result in death such as stoning. Other barbaric punishments they used were lashing the back 100 times. With homosexual Iranians they are treated not only the worse from police but also clients who beat them. It is a real sad case of people who uses any justification from the Koran to condemn others. Using this action they are no different than the Pharisees and legalists back then. This similarity is especially true this country which is no difference than any other place around the world, yet claims to be the best and the brightest beacon of freedom in the world.

Bush (the self proclaimed Christian and antichrist) has used Christianity in a way that twists and manipulates fellow Christians that brought into a war of catastrophe. With fellow Satanist Karl Rove, he helped him to be portrayed as a man of the cloth. From Yb's post wolf in sheep's clothing people should know Christ by the actions and not its tongue. With the use of 9/11 as the match to light the world on fire, he had created a scapegoat with the use of another religion connecting with the Taliban which has nothing to do with the Muslim religion at all, then head towards Iraq, always siding with the Zionists of Israel. As usual the so called establishment Christianity is abandoning the teachings of spirituality and siding with a political party by man.

If you are supposed to be part of religion why would you wear a cross, claim to be a holy person and yet proudly associate yourself with an establishment that does not make any sense? It is ok for you to be a part of a healthy ongoing relationship with the Lord. So called Muslims, Judaism and Christians who serve to a falsehood politician do not deserve to be labeled as holy nor do they deserve to be associated with Christianity, Judaism or Islam. The religious right are known to be among the unholiest people, who use hate and fear to establish themselves in politics for their own agenda instead of being established with the Lord. Shows like Veggie Tales and Left Behind are just a few that claim to use abomination against the lord. Nations who used to condemn others of their orientation proves to be more sanctimonious and morally bankrupt. It is proven that not knowing the lord and serving to an establishment that is Godly only on the surface is unholy and detestable. Everyone thinks that they are on the right track, but only the genuine people can explain in detail, without shame, why they are on that track.

Rev 3:1-6

“I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

Hugo Chavez at the UN 2006, calls Bush The Devil.




I linked this video in the comments section of the post below. This is an amazing speech that I hope everyone here has had the chance to see. There is a spiritual uprising going on, an "awakening" that affects everyone in the world some way or another. Chavez spoke of the spiritual war that is being waged against all of the people of the world. Notice how he discusses the "people of the South" who are rising up. Obviously, Chavez is from South America, but he extends his hand out to nations around the world (many of which have been attacked, ignored, and/or exploited by the American empire) and he seems to be addressing them in his speech, and not just the Venezuelan people. Chavez is a Believer in Christ, and since his speech is clearly rich with Biblical language, perhaps Chavez read something that makes him relate to "people of the South", and see George Bush as an evil "King of the North".

Introduce Daniel 11:20-24, which is the story of the "Kings of the North" and "Kings of the South" fighting through several wars and generations throughout history, until the final Day of Judgment.
Vs:20
There shall arise in his place one who imposes taxes on the glorious kingdom; but within a few days he shall be destroyed, but not in anger or in battle."
This verse, I think, describes George H.W. Bush. His biggest political blunder was saying "read my lips, no new taxes" before hiking up taxes. That cost him the '92 election, where he was removed from power in the wake of his victory in Iraq.
Vs:21

And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.
Bush jr. wasn't elected by a popular vote, hence he did not have "the honor of royalty"...he didn't get in power by the usual means.
Vs:22
With the force of a flood they shall be swept away from before him and be broken, and also the prince of the covenant.
This seems to be referring to 9-11, which was an attack on America, and an attack on Christ's teaching of how we should treat our enemies.
Vs:23

And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people.
This represents the natural effect of a boastful liar who claims to be good, but whose actions are evil. Only the brainwashed "base" will stay with him, but by law he has tremendous power, and despite high disapproval ratings, he has successfully gathered more executive power than any president in history.
He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time.
This seems familiar when looking at the $700Billion Wall Street Bail Out, but it also applies to other aspects of his presidency. War Profiteering also comes to mind, for instance.


Likewise, the powerful Last Days prophecy of Joel chapter 2 (read it here) says,
"never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations. I will drive the northern army far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land."
Chavez wasn't calling for a political revolution. He saw spiritual revolution on the horizon, indeed happening at the time, and strengthening now. Chavez announced this before the United Nations. Praise the Lord!

I have deactivated comments to this post in order to continue the conversation below. If any of you feel led to publish a post of your own view about what the next step should be, please do so. This is a good time to have in depth discussion about the matter of what our idea of "the next step" is... What has been shared so far about the subject is very strong meat, and very timely.

How wonderful it is to be a part of such a unique, set-apart group. Coming here and hearing so many common views from different sources is a great blessing. I don't know about you all, but I have felt stronger in the spirit since yesterday...more confident. I had a good friend call me up with a "you've been right all along" remark while Bush was addressing the nation last night. I really think that Bush is stepping over the line this time, and people are snapping out of their apathetic hypnosis.

The devil Will Not Win! People are getting ready to listen! The masses are coming to realize how serious this time is. May the Light of God's truth continue to spread throughout this dark world, through all of his servants.

The Economy From Hell

The events of the past week have caused the entire worldwide capitalist system to tremble at it's very foundation. This sort of economic virus clearly shows why "globalism" isn't such a good idea after all. But it's too late to stop. "Globalism" is the politically correct term for the New World Order, which, like Babel, seeks to create what Peter calls A brotherhood of men without the Fatherhood of God.

I was reading through the Psalms tonight, and was blessed to find something very interesting.

On Monday 9-15 Lehman Brothers went bankrupt and Merrill Lynch was bought out by Bank of America.

Psalm 9:15 says,
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

The U.S. government had to "bail out" yet another major company, AIG on Wednesday. AIG was given a "Bridge Loan" for $85Billion . Mind you, all of this happened about a week after the massive U.S. government takeover of Mortgage Gurus Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Remember? The one that could cost taxpayers $5 Trillion! This truly is the economy from hell.

Earlier this year, I remarked that the food crisis was a fulfillment of Revelation 6:5-6 which describes the "Third Horseman of the Apocalypse". The Amplified Bible version says:

When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look ! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance). And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day's wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine!
There can be no rational doubt that American capitalism is the keystone of the world economy. This week we saw a domino effect of economic ruin that forced Russia to stop trading entirely midway through the week. A global rise in food and fuel prices has added 9 million people to the number of those who are starving to death because of their extreme poverty. Before this year, there were almost no cases of someone paying an entire days wages for a loaf of bread... but that part was being fulfilled in several countries by April of this year. But the second part, "And do not harm the oil and the wine", is referring to the upper crust, the elite. While the poor are being gouged, the rich are being protected and rewarded...does that sound familiar?

The Bush-approved stock market boosting "solution" to this catastrophe was to cancel the debt of the reckless, lawless bankers by writing a check on behalf of American taxpayers worth up to $700 Billion. Instead of distributing that money to citizens who are about to miss their mortgage payment one too many times...instead of using the people's money to help the people, Bush is paying off the Tycoon's debts. Bush has offered all sorts of blessings to the super-wealth that trades among the rest on Wall Street. I see this as nothing less than an overly-publicized bribe from Bush to his Cronies, at our expense. But this was all foretold. As the Shaking continues may you all stand firm and tall!

Psalm9:15-20
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psalm 10
Why do You stand afar off, O LORD?
Why do You hide in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor;
Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.

For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire;
He blesses the greedy and renounces the LORD.
The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God;
God is in none of his thoughts.

His ways are always prospering;
Your judgments are far above, out of his sight;
As for all his enemies, he sneers at them.
He has said in his heart, “I shall not be moved;
I shall never be in adversity.”
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and oppression;
Under his tongue is trouble and iniquity.

He sits in the lurking places of the villages;
In the secret places he murders the innocent;
His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.
He lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den;
He lies in wait to catch the poor;
He catches the poor when he draws him into his net.
So he crouches, he lies low,
That the helpless may fall by his strength.
He has said in his heart,
“God has forgotten;
He hides His face;
He will never see.”

Arise, O LORD!
O God, lift up Your hand!
Do not forget the humble.
Why do the wicked renounce God?
He has said in his heart,
“You will not require an account.

But You have seen, for You observe trouble and grief,
To repay it by Your hand.
The helpless commits himself to You;
You are the helper of the fatherless.
Break the arm of the wicked and the evil man;
Seek out his wickedness until You find none.

The LORD is King forever and ever;
The nations have perished out of His land.
LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will prepare their heart;
You will cause Your ear to hear,
To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,
That the man of the earth may oppress no more.

9-11, Seven Years of Ripening.

Although Peter makes an excellent point that 9-11-08 was the last day of peace before Hurricane Ike caused gas prices to skyrocket even further, which was followed by the current escalation in the economic downward spiral...that's obviously not what I was "predicting". The Lord will be glorified no matter what happens, so I am not too worried, and I am very relieved not to have said "Thus Saith the Lord" about 9-11-08. I've had glimpses and snippets of visions before, but I'm much more comfortable in learning about the past, and analyzing our present than I am in predicting the future.

That being said, it is possible for us to understand what will likely happen in the future, if we do the hard work of learning the hidden details of history (like the Media-ignored comparisons between Bush's 9-11, and Hitler's Reichstag fire). We can also understand what will likely happen in the future if we pay close attention to current events. Most people don't have the time for that, because their time is spent on their jobs, families, or other priorities of this world. But those people who have studied, because of a hunger to know the truth no matter what cost...people who come to know what's going on, who's behind it, and why it's happening are entrusted with "a message of hope for those who receive it, and a warning to those who will not".

The above quote is a lyric from the Psycho-spiritual-Metal band, "Tool". This band produced an album in the spring of 2001 that eerily predicted the post-9-11 world. Read the lyrics to Laturalus here. It's amazing.

What's more amazing, Alex Grey, who has painted the artwork for their album covers since 2001, actually predicted the post-9-11 world in a painting he made in 1989. The picture below shows two airplanes flying towards the twin towers in the background, and in the foreground, there are three characters: a "terrorist", a dark suit wearing gentlemen who looks suspiciously like George W Bush, and a "Dick" (as in, Dick Cheney). I am publishing this painting because of it's foresight and significance to the greater spiritual picture. I hope that I will not offend anyone by doing so.

This painting shows what I see as a combination of the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It also expresses the two paths ahead of us that I saw in my vision at the church in the week after 9-11. Those who choose the way of light, and life and God have been transforming during the past seven years into a greater awareness, empathy and understanding of the universe. Those who choose the way of darkness, and selfishness, and vengeance have experienced an atrophy of the spirit. The lost are suffering from this. They have no idea what's going on. They do not see the writing on the wall, or the dots connecting themselves. The Biblical analogy of "light" and "darkness" is about comprehension. Spiritual darkness is a plague that effects the lost (who are guided by liars, and agents of the adversary). This plague also affects the wicked themselves.

I believe that because both the lost and the wicked are in darkness, we must not condemn those who are in darkness. "Done" recently remarked on that, warning those gathered here not to get sucked up into the same condemning spirit that has it's grip on most people. He makes a very important point. We must confront and stand up when we're facing a lie, but we must not eternally condemn the liar, because it is God's duty to judge who is a deceiver, and who has simply been deceived.

God will distinguish what to keep and what to throw away, and always has. Even still, Light must penetrate the darkness. The lost will not like light shining in their eyes at first, but it's the only way to get them out. The wicked will fight to destroy the light. None of us has perfect light, but we do all have some of that light within us. It is our sacred duty to share it, in love (patience, kindness, etc). That task is certainly difficult, but in Christ it is possible, and we must be in Christ to share the light. We know the darkness will be done away with, let us continue to proclaim it. To our friends, relatives, neighbors, and strangers. The harvest is plentiful, and ripening even now. This is a wonderful time to be rooted in the Rock of Christ.

John 1:4-5
In Him (Jesus, the Word) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Jesus says in John 15:1-12
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Love is the Key. We know this, but it's good to remember it constantly, and not to be lured away from it for any reason. If we begin to argue with others purely for the thrill of winning, we are not abiding in love. The truth can only be received if it is offered in love. We must act out of love, for God, for brother, for neighbor, for enemy, and for self. We must teach in love, share in love, and most importantly, demonstrate love. Love is the Light that has been given to us, and that we must give out. Praise the Lord!

1 Cor 13:1-3
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. more...

Wake Up America

Well here we go.
Perhaps Kevin's prophecy was that 9/11 would be the last peaceful day. as my night blooming Sirius bloomed to give peace and beauty, the shaking started.
Ike , Russia, Sara Palin and Lord knows what else behind the scene.
Today the Dow Jones was down 504 points, the worst day since 9/11
Capitalism is after all a religion, it is a economic system that is built on faith and usury. Could this be what Revelation is talking about
Rv:18:2: And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.3: For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.5: For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.6: Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.7: How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.8: Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.9: And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,10: Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.11: And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,13: And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.14: And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.15: The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,16: And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!17: For in one hour so great riches is come to naught.
Sad thing is most on Wall Street don't understand

Let the bank runs begin!
By Patrick Wood, Editor September 15, 2008
The immediate aftermath of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy will be a massive and manic flight to liquidity and withdrawal of funds and credit from banks, S&L's, insurance companies and brokerages, leading to more failures.
Nothing can stop it at this point.

Will America Be Attacked on 9-11-08?

Could America be the victim of another surprise attack on September 11th, 2008? I believe it's not only possible, it's extremely likely. Knowing how risky it is to make such a bold statement, I am willing to stake my claim at Prophecy by saying that yes, it will happen.

I have been pondering and hesitating over the post you are about to read for a very long time. But that is because I haven't heard the deep, separate, and echoey voice of God saying "Yes, America will be attacked by that Wolf who cries Terrorist (George Bush) on 9-11-08". I also don't know what will happen on the day itself.

What I have experienced are ideas, observations, and random thoughts that are more solid than my normal thoughts. These thoughts make me feel as though I know with certainty things that I have no business of knowing. I have always been very skeptical about those thoughts, and ashamed to experience them, because I knew that thoughts like that are a symptom of insanity. But I have come to believe that the prophets of the Old Testament also have those thoughts. And I'm willing to take the gamble and stake my reputation on this prophecy. We'll know for certain next Thursday.



Below is an account of when those "more solid thoughts" about Bush and 9-11-08 struck me:

1. In late November 2000, while the first Bush election was still up for grabs, I was in the car with my cousin Matt, and we were listening to "Antichrist Superstar"...Suddenly, I was compelled to tell him, "If Bush somehow wins this election, and then proves that he has been lying about all of his Christian morals of peace and compassion, and he somehow invades Iraq, you just watch, he'll turn out to be the Antichrist, because God wouldn't stand for it." I didn't take my own advice, and didn't really come to believe that Bush is the Antichrist until December 2004, but that was the first heavy thought.

2. On 9-11-01, when everything was falling apart, and everyone was in some state of shock, I had a certain thought that the Antichrist was behind the attacks, and that there would be another event, but not for another seven years (9-11-08). Sure enough, with Anthrax, and Snipers and School shootings plaguing America in the years between, there has not been a single attack on America that has been linked to Al Qaeda in the seven years since 9-11. I didn't believe that Bush was the Antichrist on that day. Like many, I suspected that it was Osama Bin Laden. But I knew the Antichrist was behind the attacks.

3. A week after 9-11-01, I went to church with my Mom, and instead of the normal Wednesday night Bible study, Trinity Broadcasting Network was holding a nationally televised prayer meeting in the sanctuary. At first, I just sat and listened to the angry, hurt, and vengeful prayers. I hoped that someone in line would set the course straight and pray for forgiveness...but none did. When I realized that none would say that, I got in the line. As I stood there I prayed that I was being rash, that there wasn't a spiritual cancer in the heart of the congregation that forgot forgiveness when it was needed the most. I prayed that someone else, anyone else, would say what was on my heart. None did.

At that time, I saw a very clear vision of America's destiny. I saw two paths ahead of the intersection of 9-11, and I knew that our reaction would determine which path we would go on. I knew for certain that we had to make the right choice, and go on the right path as soon as possible, because God would allow only seven years of this gross misrepresentation of Christ. I knew that if we fed the fear and the hatred in our souls, and if we believed that it was righteous, we would be doomed as a nation. I knew that we would be withered up in seven years time...and here we are. I also saw another pathway ahead of America, the high road. The way of peace, and mercy, and love. The way that normal Americans were when they responded to the victims of 9-11. I knew the greatest obstacle ahead of us was learning how important it is to love our enemies. And I knew that if we couldn't learn that, like the unforgiving servant, we would be judged as guilty by God himself.

4. In late December 2004, when the Tsunami hit, I felt like I was snapped out of a trance by the massive tragedy. It was then that I prayed for God to show me what was really going on in the world; if these were signs of the end; and if the Antichrist really was in power somewhere. I had an incredible hunger to get to the bottom of this "end of days" question, and to seek the truth at any cost. In short, I finally gave weight to some suspicions that I had for years...and my life was forever changed because of it. Two days later, I first saw the "Bush Is Antichrist" website, and a lot of things about the world seemed to come into sharp focus and make more sense.

5. In August 2005, eight months after coming to believe that Bush is the Antichrist, I started doing some real research about the 9-11 attacks. I soon realized that amazingly enough, 9-11 itself was carried out by a shadowy Western elite (and George Bush was in on it...which explains the strange behavior of the Secret Service that morning, along with a whole series of spiritual and moral questions). I later found out that Adolph Hitler created the Nazi dictatorship out of a German democracy based on "false flag" terrorist attacks, and the promise of enhanced security. But more on the serious Hitler/Bush connections in a later post.

6. Leading up to the 2006 elections, The head of the house I am living in was speculating that the Bush administration would stage another false-flag "terrorist attack" before the '06 Congressional elections. He felt that Bush couldn't afford to lose control of Congress to the Democrats that year, and so he would have to attack, or risk impeachment. My view was different. We all had our moments of speculation and analysis. We all wanted to know what would happen. This was the fall of 2006. My speculation felt more like a proclamation, and while it seemed pretty unlikely, I was very sure that it would happen. This is what I said:

"I believe that the Bush administration will wait until they're ready. I don't think they will be impeached unless it's part of the plan, But when they do strike, Karl Rove is going to be in legal trouble, and Bush is going to be going through some sort of Impeachment process. His impeachment will probably still be in debate on the house floor when it happens. Why do that? Because it would create a wave of sentiment for the Bush administration. They will go through the motions of being held accountable to what's left of the law, and then we will be attacked, to break the sovereignty of the law by the urgent need for security. The next major "Terrorist Attack" against America will happen right near the end of his term, because why would Bush waste his official time in office? He has no reason to attack until the clock is almost up, and he has to have some sort of excuse to continue in office, and that excuse will come from chaos. He will at least try to spin declaring Martial Law as a "public service", or a "last resort"...but it's really a massive power grab. I also think he struck a deal with some of the corporate heads who are a part of this Bohemian Grove / Bilderberg conspiracy. Bush promised to keep things peaceful for a set amount of time, so that they could maximize their profits, and maximize the debt of the masses during that time. I believe it's going to happen on September 11th 2008".

And here we are today...The economy is in shambles: we are experiencing a worldwide food and fuel crisis, an above-average abundance of Natural Disasters. In May of this year Asia experienced two extremely devastating natural disasters, Typhoon Nagis, and an earthquake in China. In June the Mississippi River flooded many areas along it's coast in the great floods of '08, and Dennis Kusinich introduced 35 articles for impeachment against George W Bush. In July, Karl Rove was held in Contempt of Congress because he didn't show up to testify in regards to the recent Justice Department scandal. So my improbable "speculation" has been coming true exactly so far.

On August 8th, The morning of the Olympics grand opening, Georgia (believing they were backed by NATO) began bombing the separatist region of South Ossetia (which is largely composed of Russian-speakers, and is part of the pre-communist Russian empire)...Russia fought back with a massive demonstration of military might, and there is talk now about how we are in a New Cold War. On August 18th, Perez Musharraf stepped down as president, leaving Pakistan in a "political vacuum". Things are shaky right now, and they could tip over very easily, but people are still looking away, still hoping for deliverance in the next presidential administration.

If there is a terrorist attack on September 11th, it would cause at least part of the "9-11 truth" movement to hit the streets in hope of starting a revolution. An attack on that day might also cause some gun-loving evangelicals to snap, and go on a crusade to kill liberals and "secular humanists" in the name of the Lord. Seven years is, after all, a very significant time-frame for people who are fascinated with the apocalypse in the mainstream church, and there are plenty of dangerous people who are obsessed with Armageddon, and have been taught for the past seven years that the "War on Terrorism" is righteous. So in some ways, 9-11 is the Achilles heel of America. After the reaction from the masses, Bush would have no choice but to declare Martial law, and use those Halliburton-built concentration camps to "quell domestic dissent".

In the movie, The Devils' Advocate, Al Pacino (the Devil) says, "I'm a surprise, they don't see me coming". Bush's plan is simple, and devious: it is to take over the world. He has the same ambition as Adolph Hitler...but for some reason, most people aren't willing or able to see that about him. He will strike on 9-11, and use the strike as an excuse to gather more power. And most just don't see him coming. But some do, praise God.
