“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” (Ps 116: 15 KJV)
Contrary to Catholic teaching, saints are not just those canonized by the Pope. The appearance of untold millions of redeemed souls in the last days dispels that error completely. They are all called saints and they don’t need the Pope’s approval for that honored appellation. (Rev 5: 11)
Far more important is the fact that their deaths, especially those that are martyred, are ‘precious’ to God. The truth is that the severity of the judgments found in Revelation is due largely because in the last days, the slaughter of his people will begin again and will lead to God’s final intervention into the history of man. It is a worldwide judgment that will make atomic warfare; EMP’s and bio-war seem tame by comparison.
While I know that one day the message of warning and that of thousands of the faithful who share this message will be vindicated, even that, counts for little in our own assessment of things. What does count - are the precious lives and families of those who are disregarded and treated as refuse in a world that is sliding into reprobation at the speed of death. FULL POST

The Next Hitler Arrives with Great Speed and Fury – He will not be late
After listening to a NPR reporter tell her listeners that Christians have always been apocalyptic and have been warning for generations that judgment was coming - I could only cringe.
Uniformitarianism is the world’s opiate, it is the way the hordes keep themselves immune from watching the signs of the times, and it is why Christ said that the last days will be as the days of Noah.
Quite simply, the days of Noah were a time in which the wine, song and laughter prevailed. Most of the laughter was directed toward one little band of people who were getting ready for the apocalypse they were told would come.
Uniformitarianism has many faces, but it is the inoculation that keeps this generation thinking that everything will go on forever. It is the sleepy cosmologically induced eternity of the day, and the fully accepted invisible, unsupported parameter by which we determine there is nothing much to worry about. FULL POST

To millions of Christians and people who have not lost their basic understanding of what makes up a reasonable life that is coherently connected to the main stream of thought; abortion is still murder and homosexuality is still perversion. To apologize or shrink away from this view requires lying and denying something so basically human, as to be a sacrilege.
The alternative to this kind of natural, or intrinsic honesty, is to follow the path, the yellow brick road to the fantasy land of political correctness.
PC is not just foolishness, it is becoming dangerous and in some cases deadly.
The refusal of Barack Obama to call Islamic Jihad what it is, is today’s prime example of the kind of denial that is deadly. It is inclusion and diversity that has already cost many people their lives, and will claim even more, if it is not abandoned soon.
When one leader of a nation of 77 million people, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, decides that all of Europe will be labeled “Islamophobic” if they do not allow Turkey to become a member of the EU indicates just how deeply PC nonsense has permeated our world. FULL POST

America’s premiere nineteenth century folk songster was, hands down, one Stephen Collins Foster. He died a pauper as have many folk songsters before him, but in 1854, Firth, Pond and Company published one of his songs entitled “Hard Times Come Again No More” and it became popular both in America and across the continent of Europe.
Nation founding and pioneering were at their height across the globe, but never so much as in America. Songs of struggles and scarcity were common and Europeans found them interesting in their fully developed nations where poverty was limited to certain cities or regions, but the general welfare of most European citizens was stable.
Foster’s songs invoked the sense of struggle and hard times, but were often misinterpreted as a sign that America was weak and could barely stand to her feet. In fact she was never stronger. Enduring hardships is a cleansing and purifying element that has long gone, and now it may be only the absence of the latest handheld gadget or the money to lavish on entertainment that is considered a hardship.
Difficulty has never made anyone weak if they refuse to move forward conjuring the best attitude and sense of resolve as they go. Was it a prayer or simply a mournful cry for hard times to come no more – in any sense, it was the call for better times that is generated from a belief that they can and will come. FULL POST

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" – Barack Obama
These now famous words of the President of the United States were spoken at the U.N. General Assembly September 25, 2012.
This author is of the opinion that French Magazine Charlie Hebdo’s satirical depictions of various religions and leaders are often disrespectful and over the top. I also completely agree that in a free world they did, and always will, have the right to express their views without fear of reprisal and death.
In the free world and in the Christian schools and seminaries of the United States are found works that examine every religion and religious leader known to man. It is because we can examine the lives and teachings by which we are guided that we can also avoid spurious, false and dangerous religions and false teachers.
The list is enormous and it is not biased by anything except the desire to compare what emerges as true and what is simply falsehood and potentially dangerous. In schools where the Bible is the guide the scrutiny is even greater. In fact, even Christian leaders come under heavy scrutiny including the Pope. It is not for satire, but for far more serious purposes to wit: FULL POST

In the coming year few new predictions are slated for the United States. The focus will soon be Europe and the political changes there will not be noticed until after the 2015 Euro elections are finished.
The U.S. economy is absolutely set to crash if not slide into its last hurrah. Jobs, new businesses and corporate profits will show declines. Obama’s economic policy, started in 2008, will bear fruit in his lame duck years from which there will be little to no recovery. Racial distractions the promised new warfare with the newly elected republican congress and senate will fuel distraction, but provide little economic relief. The predictions are dire.
Interloping into all of Obama’s reckless economics policy will be the battles of social changes, lost freedoms and big government that he has introduced like a blitzkrieg into the America way of life and the pursuit of happiness. Not a very happy prospect.
Even as markets and corporate earnings begin to show decline radicalism, rebellion and general lawlessness will take Obama’s cue and begin its debut both at home and around the world. From Bush’s drive to increase police and law enforcement to the recent cry of protestors in NYC to produce “dead cops” only someone living on a remote desert isle could not see the spirit of lawlessness beginning to flower.

In an old video about people who influence our world was a scene in which noted Swiss born Christian theologian Karl Barth pulled down an old dusty copy of the Bible and began reading. Years of human reasoning and highly intelligent surmising stood by as he pondered the divinely appointed words of the Savior. It created a stir in his soul from which he began to see that what Christ had already said, in all of its power, simplicity and authority gave him a brand new start in life and an entirely new view of the world.
Later, when asked by a newspaper reporter to state briefly the most important thing he had ever learned, he replied with – “Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so.”
Rather than being curt with the reporter, Barth was indicating that he had regressed to a state of childlikeness, that state where true understanding and wisdom stems from – it is the ability to see unhindered by doubt. It is the state of being that slaughters presuppositions and can see God even in a world where abject darkness prevails. In fact, no wisdom is as pure as the trusting nature found in children. Barth was attesting that he had touched the meaning of Christ’s words even as they touched him. It was the word of God alive in his experience, not just in his head. FULL POST

Among many problems of publishing a website with many articles and reports is the problem of weak titles. Some of the best articles get few reads because they have sparse and incomplete titles. Articles aren’t like books adorned with full color graphics, subtitles and descriptors, so the title stands alone to induce the reader to continue.
The above title is my cover and although it is quite long it should have read – “New York’s Finest - Racial Provocateurs – Bad Math and Prophecy and the four elements of the last days apostasy that show how all these things are pulling together to create the level ground for the antichrist to rule the world”
This writer is not callous and my first order of business is to include myself among those who are mourning the loss of New York’s police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
There is little doubt that these officers were ambushed, slaughtered and assassinated in cold blood. They did not deserve this kind of a death only days from this nation’s most celebrated holiday and their families, friends and fellow officers deserve the sympathy of this entire nation.

This year the American Atheists National Convention has decided to wage war in the Bible Belt of our nation with billboards with the following caption being placed all over the south.
“Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is to skip church! I’m too old for fairy tales”
Defending what has become Christmas is a futility if we consider that now merchants have circumvented the argument about whether to call it Christmas or the holidays – now it’s the ‘shopping season.’
If that’s all there is to it then we may have nothing to argue about. But if it is still about the birth of the Savior of the world it will take more than a few maladjusted atheists to dislodge the faith of millions.
It isn’t the idea of skipping church that is particularly offensive, but it’s the allusion to an entire generation long series of unquestioned fairy tales that is pompous, prideful and smacks of a rather overblown sense of their own righteousness. To think all these years we thought only religious people could be so self-righteous. Hegel, Camus and Russell would blush at the arrogance coming from this crop of blowhards. FULL POST

No sooner had Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber apologized for calling Americans “stupid” when along came an incident at UCLA Berkeley that might just prove he was right.
In a video furnished by Mail Online we see an almost unbelievable scenario of flag waving on campus that proves that this generation is finally showing conclusively that they are beyond indoctrination, but have moved all the way up to brainwashed.
The title of the piece says it all – “UC Berkeley students ignore Fox commentator waving ISIS flag but ATTACK him when he waves Israeli flag.”
No – this writer does not believe Americans are stupid, but we have a long way to go to reel in the worse than dumb behaviors of the last generation. Really - men marrying men is cool? Smoking pot until your brain is numb is cool? Judges deciding if the will of the people in a democratic republic can stand is cool? Or how about a President who calls for law and order in Ferguson MO – while at the same time breaks the Constitution to little pieces in an executive fiat the makes everyone of 5 million people who committed a felony - just another person in the neighborhood. Let’s not be too hard on Gruber. FULL POST
