My Middle East Land-for-Peace Plan

May 24, 2011

Why don’t we fix the “Palestinian Problem” properly? My land-for-peace suggestion involves flipping the half butterfly-wing of the West Bank over to the east into Jordan. Then the Palestinians can butt heads with the Jordanians over who will control Amman. Okay, so it doesn’t line-up perfectly, but hey; The Palestinians have to fight with someone. Right? Why not their great-great grandparents in Jordan? Next, let’s flip the Gaza Strip down to the southwest. The Palestinians of Gaza can then build their own towns in the “hanging chad” extending into Egypt. Sorry Syrians but you don’t get to build your missile launchers on the Golan Heights.
Were it not for the fact that the Arabs hate the Jews, something like my land-for-peace plan would work. Look at the areas I described on Google Earth. Nobody lives there, for the most part. Plenty of room for the Palestinians to live peacefully, if they really wanted peace.
It seems that Obama has the same desire to see the end of Israel as the Arabs do. Why else would he advocate Israel returning to the pre-1967 war borders as the way to implement Middle East peace? I don’t know. Maybe he’s just an idiot. One thing for sure is, he didn’t learn a thing from George Bush’s siding with Arabs against Israel back in 2005. Remember when George pressured Ariel Sharon to withdraw from Gaza and the West Bank? For that, God slapped President Bush with Hurricane Katrina. For Obama’s folly, he gets EF-5 tornadoes in the Great Plains.
I think the only reason these disasters don’t land on Washington, D.C., is that moral, honorable people still pray for the safety of our leaders. God bless them. Nobody else will, that’s for sure.

Harold Camping: False Prophet

May 22, 2011

It’s Sunday, May 22, 2011. This is the day of the “Great Disappointment of 2011” for FamilyRadio.com, Harold Camping, and his devoted followers. I am so confident that the Lord Jesus will not rapture the Church on May 21, that I started writing this on May 19. There is one thing, however, that may eventually make all of us wish that Camping would have been right. For on May 19, 2011, President Obama, President Barack Hussein Obama, openly and proudly invited the wrath of God upon our nation by his arrogant siding with the sons of Ishmael (the ARABS) against Israel. We’ll get to that later. Now, I’m not one to gloat but Harold Camping was wrong (again) about the Rapture and the judgment to come. No matter how strongly you believe a thing, if it is not in accordance with God’s will, it’s not going to happen. God cannot be manipulated by human will. Here in Spokane, Washington, where I live, we saw manifested our share of Camping’s deceived followers. Though not a large number, they were quite convinced in their belief. They walked through large parks, shopping malls and stood on street corners passing out fliers. They drove up and down the streets in their cars, bedecked with announcements of Camping’s prophecy. I cannot help but wonder what they are doing today, after their version of the “Great Disappointment” has come to pass? For those of you who don’t know, the “Great Disappointment” refers to the failed “prophecy” of the Rapture and the end of the world as told by William Miller in 1843. Miller, who split off from the Baptists in the early 1800s, was a seminal element behind the Seventh Day Adventist movement. Many of the “Millerites,” as they were called, quit their jobs, sold their possessions, donned white “Ascension Robes, ” and stood upon their roofs awaiting the fulfillment of their dream. When it didn’t happen, Miller made the expected excuses and set a new date: October 22, 1844. That day became known as the “Great Disappointment of 1844.” Needless to say, Miller’s followers were disappointed and confused after both of his prophecies failed. Eventually, the Millerites disbanded and formed three different groups, one of which became the Seventh Day Adventests. Jehovah’s Witnesses taught that the second coming of Christ took place in 1914. More recently, Edgar Whisenant wrote a book entitled, 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Could Be in 1988. Of course, the Lord did not come in 1988. Not to be outdone by the initial failure, he presented his new theory: 89 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Take Place in 1989. It was humorously surmised that the added reason given in the new book might be this: "Reason #89—Because He did not come in 1988." Even the Catholics are not immune. I do not know what will become of FamilyRadio.com, Harold Camping, or his followers. I sincerely hope and pray that Camping’s disciples will recognize that their leader is a false prophet and will seek the Truth from the Lord through His Word, instead of listening to the imaginations of men like Harold Camping. My prayer for Camping is that he would repent quickly, for God frowns upon those who lead his children astray (Matt. 18:6). This should serve as a lesson to everyone who claims the Name of Christ. Hear what God has said and just believe it. You may not understand everything initially but, the danger of seeking out other sinful men to explain it to you is more dreadful than you can imagine. Man can help you with translating the words and with the history and cluture. Those elements, combined with a consistent set of rules for interpretation, will allow you, with the help of the indwelling Holy Spirit (assuming that you believed God and are born again, of course), to understand that God says what he means and means what He says. You don’t need priests, pastors, popes, ministers, or professors to tell you what the Bible means. You don’t need college degrees in this-ology or that-ology; those "ologies" being nothing more than the imaginations of men who should have spent more time studying their Bibles and less time striving to have "ologies" named after themselves. Think about it for a moment. God wrote the book. Don’t you think that He’s the most qualified to explain it to you? Yes, I know. Sometimes God uses men to accomplish His will. Did you get that last part? “… accomplish His will.” I don’t believe that all the different denominations of Christianity, to say noting for all the different religions, work to accomplish God’s will. God is not the author of confusion (1 Cor. 14:33). This plethora beliefs do the exact opposite. Leaving believers and non-believers alike trying to sort-out the morass of contradictory doctrines, deceptive teachings, and corrupt organizations. Too many believers ignore the problems, preferring the social life and their friends and associates at church to embracing and being embraced by the Truth. Non-believers aren’t really interested in hearing what “we” have to say. They are happy not to be entangled in that mess. Now, all of us who have heard and believed God have to contend with the fallout of another person who set-out, in folly and bald-faced defiance of God’s written Word, to set a date for the up-ward call (Phil 3:14), thereby bringing even more ridicule upon the Body of Christ than we have suffered in the past. If you, Dear Reader, are one of Camping’s disciples, please don’t do something foolish. This event did not catch God unawares. He knew this would happen. He can help you get back on the Biblical rails, which lead to Truth, if you will but trust Him.

Obama Invites God’s Wrath Upon America

May 19, 2011

This is just a quick post. Today should be a sad day for all Americans and all Christians. President Obama openly and proudly invited the wrath of God upon our nation by arrogantly siding with the sons of Ishmael against Israel. This should be a clear sign to all Christian Americans that Barack Hussein Obama is NOT a Christian. He is a CINO (Christian In Name Only) for no true believer could stab Israel in the back the way he has. A true Believer knows what Genesis 12:3 says: “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.”

May God forgive us our foolishness.

Christlam? Say What!?!

May 16, 2011

“Say What?!?”

Yeah, that’s what I said the first time I came across that expression. That’s what we’re going to look at in this entry.

So, before I go on any further, let me say this first. I believe that Islam, the religion of the Mohammedans, is Satan’s ANSWER TO Christianity, not something to be merged with it. The professors who have perpetrated this obscene and foolish attempt to corrupt what God has said with the doctrines of devils shall drink from bitter waters, not only in this life, but in the Judgment to come. The God of the Bible is not the god the Mohammedans worship! The Prophet Jesus of the Mohammedans is not the Only Begotten Son of the Living God and very God Himself! You CINOS (Christians In Name Only), who preach and teach that they are the same have deliberately violated the First Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Ex. 20:3). Do you really think you’ll get away with this blasphemy? God will judge you and you’ll be found wanting.

1 Tim. 4:1 says: “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.”

Welcome to the “latter times”.

Luke 18:8 states in part: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

The Lord was encouraging his listeners to pray about everything. The implication in the context here is that people were trusting too much in themselves (in their self-righteousness), to take the time to pray concerning any given situation. That phrase “when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth”, I think speaks loudly and clearly to the modern, Western church.

Leaders of the modern church seem to be either so preoccupied with fleecing the sheep that they cannot recognize the evil that has infiltrated their numbers; or, they are more concerned with getting a good Republican elected as President (things of this world), that they just have no time for the things of God.

Had the professing church actually heard what God has said and believed what He had said, they would have the indwelling Holy Spirit raising red flags left and right whenever the subject of ecumenicism comes up; Especially when the subject of said ecumenicism are Mohammedans.

Jesus Himself taught, as recorded in Matthew 7:15-20, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

It appears that today’s modern church member now looks to Wall Street, military might, politicians and their political schemes for their salvation, instead of to the One who shed His blood for their sake. Having the good life, in this life, is what counts to these. And is it any wonder? The gospel of prosperity they preach can save no one at all. The gospel of compromise with the world may increase their numbers but all they end up doing is making their converts twice the disciples of hell that they themselves are. Jesus said it so much better in Matthew 25:15, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.”

Christians who are prayerfully and doctrinally lazy all run the risk of being deceived by the modern-day false prophets who sing the pretty, popular songs on stage, speak from behind pulpits and sit next to them in pews on Saturdays and Sundays.

It’s time that all who name the claim of Christ stop listening to these lies and the mouths from which they spew. It’s time to stop reading books ABOUT the Bible. Time to put down the commentaries; Open the Bible and learn from God Himself, without the interference of Man’s sordid opinions and his corrupt imaginations. There is still time to turn from the path that leads to destruction. The time is short. Chose wisely and chose quickly.

“But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.” (Deut. 4:29-31)
