Let’s not waste too much time on Hillary Clinton. With firepower minutes away and the clout of the entire State Department behind her, Hillary was unable to save even one of her key subordinates in Benghazi. Let’s move on – nothing to see here.
It is not just Benghazi. Hillary’s State Department blocked an investigation of the Orlando killer Omar Mateen’s mosque for fear of offending Muslims.
Hillary now has the distinction of being the only presidential candidate in history who, while promising to defend America from Jihadists – may have already helped to bring on the worst act of Jihad so far on American soil.
Her record follows her and that alone should produce fear in most Americans.
Hillary accuses Trump of fostering fear and hatred, terms she has little right to use unless you have the wit to see it is only her fear and hatred of Trump that is speaking.
It’s not the favorability poll, but the death toll we should be considering for our candidates. It is doubtful that attacks will stop under Hillary Clinton, but radical Jihadist will be put on the defensive from the first minute Donald Trump becomes president. FULL POST

Men have buried themselves in a generation long use of the language of modern psychiatry. The idea of a man being mis-led deceived or possessed by a demon or devil seems arcane to the modern mind.
Jesus was explicit and made a careful and concise distinction between mental illness and demon possession.
“And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.” (Mt 4: 24)
Liberalism scoffs at the idea of a man under the control of a devil, and yet, God’s word says that it is not just one man or a few that are under the sway of demons, but entire nations.
Twenty centuries have passed as the gospel is still being preached to all men; within the tenets of the gospel is a promise that by receiving Christ we can rid ourselves of all demonic influence. It is not the path men will choose, they will continue down the broad path until nearly all of them follow the old serpent into the battle of Armageddon.
At Christ’s return he deals with the deceiver directly – to wit. FULL POST

“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.” (Heb 12: 7-8)
True messengers of the gospel not only love God, but they love their nation and its people. It may seem all too rudimentary, but those who love their children warn, rebuke and punish them regularly – those who do not do this don’t love their children and we might say they actually hate them or at the least are indifferent.
Hardly a week passes without someone suggesting that my candid reviews of our politicians, church leaders and others do not seem very loving. In fact, it is because I love God and this nation that I say the things I do.
The American Prophet website has hundreds of articles that do not speak favorably about Barack Obama, and yet, I love him, even if it is on the most fundamental level. That level is of course, that he is created in the image of God and is as redeemable as any other citizen of our nation. I hate most of his policies and executive orders and it is to those I speak.
Donald Trump has earned about forty scrutinizing articles on the site, most are not very flattering, but, I do love the man. To love a man with an ego as big as the Grand Canyon tests the very limits of my Christian faith, but I can love him for the same reasons I love Obama. FULL POST

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” (Ec 3: 1)
Some say that we are caught between a rock and a hard place in this election season. Others conclude that since Ted Cruz is out of the running, we are left with only the lesser of two evils. It may be that what is relative is now being forced upon us, but regardless of how we view the dilemma we are faced with things that are readily apparent.
Because of Donald Trump’s obvious lack of class, savvy and statesmanship we will suffer a loss if he is elected president. Contrarily, the nation will be completely lost if we elect Hillary Clinton and the Godless liberalism that has eroded our morality and our freedom is allowed to continue under a Clintonian administration.
It can be said in several ways, but the truth cannot be denied. We cannot possibly compare Donald Trump with Ronald Reagan, but we also dare not fail to compare Trump with Clinton. It is a good thing that Mr. Trump wants to “make America great” - but we would be better off if we had a great man to lead the charge. Making billions and blazoning your name across tall buildings is the poorest definition of greatness, but these are desperate times. FULL POST

Honestly, why does anyone have to ask this question? Since it is not a law, but only a tradition that presidential candidates open their tax records to the public, why has Donald Trump refused to show his records to the world?
He is breeding suspicion and controversy. While it is true that some internet sites feed us questions galore and attempt to pass it off as news – this one is begging for an answer.
Donald Trump entered the great “Birther Controversy” with great fervor and some think that it was his interest in the matter that forced Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate. There are still many who believe Barack’s mysterious document is a fake.
Now, it is Trump’s refusal to show his tax records that are making some believe he is a fake.
He has stated that he will show his records, but not until after the November general elections are finished.
How convenient. Won’t it be too late? Will someone raise the specter of an impeachment or will they just throw their hands in the air and give up? How far did the cry for impeachment get when Obama started ignoring the congress, the constitution, and just about everyone in the nation? FULL POST

Mr. Trump has promised that he will “make America great again.” It is a promise that Trump no doubt believes and it is relatively safe to think that he will endeavor to keep.
After a half century of involvement in eschatology, prophecy and the decline of our nation I must emphatically state the Mr. Trump is a day late and a dollar short. The worst of our decline has taken place in the last forty years and the levels to which we have sunk cannot be properly assuaged or coaxed back to our best days even by a multi-billionaire.
Now, Mr. Trump has become America’s entire new Ross Perot candidate on the GOP ballot. Early polls are already indicating that Trump is several points behind Hillary in the general election outcome.
A second dilemma has arisen and can be seen in the Tweets and Facebook comments of Americans who say they cannot vote for Trump as a matter of principle. Some have called for the unifying of the party in an effort to defeat Hillary. Others will not abandon their strong and principled beliefs because they are sure that Trump is not the right man.
Like this writer, they believe Trump means every word he says, but it is all else he says that drive them away from the man. The press calls Trump a phenomenon, but more honestly he should be called an enigma. He is creating an enigma in Americans who want what he says, but not him. FULL POST

When nations are in decline they all tend to follow the same path. They place their hope in a new leader who says all the right things and in a desperate attempt to clean up the mess the citizens have made, he or she is placed on the top of the rubble and expected to lead us out of the shambles.
Mao promised that he would give China what the old dynasties could never produce; they got communism.
Mussolini promised Italians a return to the glory of Rome; they got subservience to Germany followed by humiliating defeat.
Hitler promised a renewed and “Great Germany” that would rule nations for thousand years; They got a world that bound itself together at the cost of millions of lives to crush her ambitions in less than a decade which left her destroyed, divided and stuck with a legacy of shame.
Then along comes America with her deep plunge into perversity and immorality, scoffing at her founding fathers and ignoring her roots in Scripture, and her very own Constitution. The answer to all this is, yet another leader (Donald Trump) who promises more “greatness.”
The exceptional nation is about to prove it is just like all the nations before it – that is not so exceptional after all. FULL POST

In a video entitled “Trump Surrenders to 'LGBT' Bathroom Nonsense” Donald Trump is heard saying “He is fine with those who identify as the opposite sex using the restroom of their choice.”
Is this is the man millions of followers are clamoring to give the GOP nomination to?
Is this great confusion in Trump’s mind about genders a preview of what he means by the promise to “Make America great again?"
Trump’s choice of ideas is about as stable and promising as his choice of words concerning just about everything and every person, especially those who oppose him.
From the “Evangelicals” supporting Trump to the news outlets and pundits that are paving the way for this man, the call goes out, not just to roll it back, the call is now - to repent.
There is but one thing that is further apart than the east is from the west – the word statesmen and the name Donald Trump. FULL POST

As a child we were told that the actual worth of our bodies was about $4.50. Accounting for inflation and price rises over half a century we are all now worth about $160.00 depending on our weight.
Donald Trump’s claim that he is worth over ten billion dollars works just fine in the minds of those to whom the American Dream is calculated in dollars. Hero worship is a base compunction among those who could not spot character and other redeeming qualities without changing the premise of their world view.
In the realm of Christian apologetics and sound theology, a world view is a supreme test of how a man, or a crowd, discerns what success is, and is generally what drives most people to make the decisions they do.
We love to repeat the adage that when you die regardless of how much you are worth – “you can’t take it with you.” This adage is so immutably true that it includes the $160.00 worth of flesh that we carry around from day to day.
How much is Donald Trump worth? You do the math.
Just as in politics we have what is known as “Republican in name only,” Christianity has what we call “Christians in name only,” for which we might use the acronym CINO’s. FULL POST

The Bible plainly teaches that one of the characteristics of the end of this age is that people will develop a capacity for delusion rather than the truth. – Rev Billy Graham - From Billy Graham: Delusion or Deliverance?
Delusions are cropping up faster than weeds in what was once one of the finest gardens the world has ever known – the United States of America. But why?
It would be all too easy to say what this writer believes with every molecule in my body – we are approaching the very last of the last days as we know them. Before the reader flees away mumbling something about those darn doomsday prophets, consider these prophecies, which in fact, are promises.
The question of why we choose delusions is the easiest of all to answer. When the truth is not loved, revered and respected, the next thing we meet on the road is “delusion” and her companion or mate, “strong delusion.”
The delusion spoken of in this passage of scripture can only be connected to the last days because the verses preceding it have to do with the coming of the antichrist. We are already witnessing the strong delusions, which means, the antichrist is not far behind. FULL POST
