Prophecy and the NewsTweet

It is difficult to decide exactly what kind of humor Jesse Watters produces in his Fox News feature called Watters’ World. It is a show that seems like an admixture of Dumb and Dumber and SNL with random real life players.
On Saturday February 11, 2017 Watters interviews New York City students at a protest the results are stunning.
Starting with one female student who declared that Iran is not a terrorist country and after Watters told her that it is the number one sponsor of terrorism in the world she stood dumbfounded and speechless.
Next, were the students who were asked to name the countries that were targeted by Trump’s travel ban. Of the three that were asked two could name a few countries some could not name one.
The snowflakes are melting in the heat of reality.
Next, on the Watters’ show was a Tweet that said, “I apologize for my generation.” FULL POST

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (2Th 2: 11)
This warning and promise of scripture is given to those who live in the days just prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It, along with many other passages speak to a time when “knowledge will be increased” (Dan 12: 4), but spiritual blindness will also be at a peak. The world will be as spiritually dumbed down as it will ever get.
God does not willfully trap people in this delusion, but because they want to live outside of his will, he lets them pursue it to the point of reprobation. (Ro 1: 28) Reprobation is a ticket to the interventional judgment of the Living God. It is to be – judged already!
The crowd that falls into this category has two things in common. The first is that they are the largest group on the planet earth and second, they are perfectly sure they are on the correct path. FULL POST

Watching the defeated Democrats battling President Trump on every level is disconcerting for those who mandated his leadership. It is mostly a fanciful delay and in time it will shrink back so America can get on with the business of being America.
No one would dare say the Democrats are not willing to show up to make war, but as reflected in the eight years of the Obama administration, they seem to have trouble identifying the real enemy. They choose the wrong battles and at times the wrong war.
Let’s put away the notion that President Trump has broken to pieces the nation’s long heritage of helping and receiving refugees to our shores. He has put a temporary ban in place until a better means of vetting dangerous radicals from slipping into our nation can be devised. This is a case of no more and no less – it is now time to move on.
As for his unfolding cabinet picks and choices for the Supreme Court of the United States suffice it to say that America has scored. The choice of Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat of the late Antonin Scalia was called “a home run” by Mr. Trump’s former opponent, Sen. Ted Cruz. FULL POST

Ashton Kutcher called out President Trump at the recent SAG Awards like the President was a child rebelling against those sage and privileged few we refer to as celebrities who really think they know what is best for America.
After years of portraying America’s teenagers as moronic sex crazed imbeciles on ‘That 70s Show’ Kutcher has ridden the fame train right into the land of superior wisdom and now he knows with unwavering certainty that the travel ban imposed by the President is wrong.
Kutcher insists that those being blocked are as he declares, “Welcome in my America.”
Yes Ashton, immigrants are indeed part of the fabric of America, but we are and have been a nation with them and without them. Today some of them come to our shores from other nations with ideologies, plans and schemes to express their views at the expense of our peace, our culture and our lives.
These are not the days of Ellis Island; they are days of danger, These days call for a different kind of diligence, discernment and duty to our native land – like most of Hollywood you don’t seem to know that. FULL POST

Sometimes even the most illustrious words can bury the beauty and the deep meaning of a glorious moment – we will attempt to refrain from burying what may have been the most stirring Presidential inauguration in America’s history with too many words.
The crowds across the mall were superbly self-controlled and respectful, all standing as a cross section of America’s best.
Law enforcement on every level handled themselves with professionalism and respectfulness.
The families of both the incoming President and the Vice President were a picture of dignity and composure and beaming pride for both President and Vice President.
The tears in VP Mike Pence’s eyes after he was sworn in revealed the heart of a man of compassion, purpose and love for his nation.
The speech of President Trump was highlighted, first, by his call for God’s protection on our country and the proclamation that the power of our nation was now being handed back to the people. He vowed to wipe Radical Islamist Terrorism off the face of the earth and he called Americans to unite. It was a succinct, powerful, patriotic and totally all American speech that will grace the pages of our national history. FULL POST

Fox’s O’Reilly is quick to say that he and his staff trust nothing coming from the internet. Since most of the scandals and fake news today comes from television, we can only wonder if he sees himself as the only legitimate source of the truth. While his attitude smacks of cultism we also see that Mr. O’Reilly does well with his own internet websites.
While many are wary of religious cults the red lights don’t go on as quickly for the more acceptable cults created by celebrities, politicians’ newsmen and others. Cults are formed to create a space where everything within is perfect and correct, and all without is suspect, dangerous or altogether evil.
The truth is that we do not expect either newsmen or politicians to understand or define Biblical or sound theological truths. Not only do they miss the mark in their explanations of these matters, but they seem to miss it when others grossly mishandle such truths.
A prime example can be seen in the recent Senate confirmation hearings conducted for President Elect Trump’s excellent choice for Secretary of State, former CEO of Exxon Mobile, Mr. Rex Tillerson. When asked how he would approach the matter of Isis he replied with, “Defeating ISIS must be our foremost priority in the Middle East.” FULL POST

This is the tenth in a yearly series of prophetic assessments of our world in the light of Biblical prophecy and current events.
The first was in 2008, since then little has changed in the general direction of our nation and the world. Liberal viewpoints, abortion, unbridled licentiousness and the unleashing of the gross perversion of the LGBT and transgenderism have marched ahead like a parade in Moscow’s Red Square.
Prior to WWII political changes swept the world with the emergence of new and fledgling democracies, Nazism, communism and fascism. Dealing with everything except the sin prone corrupt hearts of men always results in the search for an alternative solution to the world’s problems.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jer 17: 9)
Politics is still seen as the answer. Little has changed, but today we are entering into what might be called the final throes. It is in this generation that the world will prep itself to receive the world’s last and very worst of all leaders.

It is hard to imagine a body of anti-Semites sitting in a nation that is allied to Israel working so hard to destroy that sovereign nation. But this is the UN, an innocuous group of one world thinkers, supported largely by the United States taxpayer, who ignore scripture, are void of all prophetic knowledge and the plan God has for his very special people – the Jews.
When the British met the Minutemen at Lexington it made history in what has been coined “The shot heard round the world.” Not since then has there been anything like it – but wait – now there’s Obama’s parting shot against the nation of Israel, our strongest Middle Eastern ally.
This is also history, howbeit, grossly profane.
After he labeled us all gun toting, Bible clinging angry citizens; Mr. Obama has remained true to form. In his final act of disdain for our history and heritage he called for our representative to the UN to abstain from the vote, which essentially puts Israel at the mercy of the rest of the world – a world with even less knowledge of the prophetic destiny of Israel than our outgoing president.
We believe that history is made wholly by nations acting out their part in a developing world, but scripture say that nations create history based on their ignorance and rejection of the prophetic message of the bible. The immutable maxim here is that when politics meets prophecy, politics always loses. FULL POST

The New Testament asserts that men are made a little lower than the angels. (Heb 2: 7) Today’s science insists that man stumbled into creation and now is only a few steps above apes and baboons on the evolutionary scale.
Prophecy says that near the end of time “knowledge” (Da 12: 4) shall be increased and according to the Apostle Paul those wielding this knowledge will decide that God has nothing to do with their existence.
Enter modern man, living and fulfilling every word of prophecy, all at the same time they see themselves as the purveyors of the outer stars and planets across the universe.
Deciding which world view is correct is easier than anyone might expect.

The prophet Ezekiel was instructed to rebuke the ancient Israelites for using a proverb; (saying or common catch phrase) because they presumed that everything the prophet said was not to be fulfilled until many years into the future.
“Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth? Tell them therefore, thus saith the Lord GOD; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, the days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.” (Eze 12: 22, 23)
The prophet appendaged his warning with two peculiar words in the next passage, they are words to ponder.
“For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.” (Eze 12: 24)
Flattering divinations were made by professional (false) prophets who tickled the ears of those in the upper echelons of the priesthood and political rulers. They were prophecies that affirmed every law and decision of the constabulary. They were compensated richly for the garbage they spewed.
The word, vain in the passage is unique only because it is literal. It has no secondary meaning. FULL POST
