Destroying American From Within

Before I start this rambling rant, let me say I believe God is in control of what is happening and that we are moving toward the final judgment upon the nations.  I just wish that there were enough American Christians who understood the seriousness of what is happening in the world.

As I look back over this year there are a few things that I stand in total amazement over.  Those who know me know I have no time for profession sports and that includes all sports.  Professional sports are the America drug of choice that has numbed the minds and intellect of this country.  Americans are plagued with the disease of stupid.  How can the general public be so hypnotized by an activity that is destroying their community, raising their taxes and robbing them of their hard earned income?  Whatever happens in this country will be our own doing. 

One of the things that totally amaze me is the amount of time the American Christian’s spend on sports.  The world can be falling apart all around us, our economy is crumbling, we are at war to the point we have stretched our military personnel to the breaking point and to top that off, we could care less about the promises made to our men and women in the military because we are more concerned about our team making the playoffs. 

Another thing I find amazing is the fans of these team act as if they are part of the team, “our team”, “we did great in recovering the ball” “our defense was unstoppable”, what is wrong with these people?   Do “your” team members come a visit you when you are in the hospital?  Do they help you find employment when you lost your job?  When is the last time one of “your” team members invited you over for dinner?  Here is a good one, when was the last time “your” team was willing to take a cut in pay so the police or firemen or teachers could get a raise? Yes, your tax dollars is supporting the professional sports.   When was the last time they wanted your taxes cut so it would not be a hardship on your community?  NEVER!  Yet, Americans allow these corporate welfare giants to steal tax dollars away to fill the pockets of the owners.  How can we be so stupid?

Another thing that I am amazed at is the total ignorance of the American people about what is happening in our communities, our states, our own government and the rest of the world.  There are very few people who can carry on an intelligent conversation about issues that impact their daily lives. Most Americans are only concerned about their own issues.  We have become a society that is self-centered and lacking in empathy for their fellow man.

We have allowed ourselves to be deceived.  The news media is deliberate in its misrepresentation of facts.  That includes every news media outlet.  The elite manipulators of mass media cannot afford to have random objective journalism—they must interpret the facts as they want us to see them. As Americans we subscribe to our own brand of Kool-Aide. After all, the daily events occurring around us are much too confusing for the average American.  Keep this in mind, individual interpretation of events does not foster a well-controlled society.  What is the common term we have become so accustomed to—the spin on the story.  We no longer have a news media reporting the news we have a propaganda machine controlling the thoughts of the public with deceitful reporting.

Case in point, Syria.  Assad is a murderous tyrant, killing his own people, using chemical weapons to bring about their destruction.  This is excuse enough for the invading of a sovereign nation.  Although there are murderous tyrants all over the world doing their own thing and we turn our backs on the people suffering in those nations.  Why?  We can’t be expected to be the policeman for the entire world now can we?  What are the criteria for us going to war with a nation we no longer like?

Enter the news media.  They will try to stir up the American public to the importance of stopping this child-killing brutal godless tyrant who is a major threat to the peace and safety of the world—especially America.
Another amazing thing I have observed this past year is the number of people who pretend to be something they are not.  How many “patriots” have turned out to have their own agenda and America was not part of the agenda.  We have the neocons Republicans who always are wanting to go to war-- they are protecting America.  From what?  When was the last time a Syrian solider was seen sneaking around your backyard?  It is understandable why the rest of the world hates us.  We have people who have ordered the killing of thousands of innocent civilians, to push an agenda for the world elite manipulators. Then we have the progressive-Democrats who want to arm those who are fighting against us.  How stupid is this?  Why would we want to arm any country that has the potential of falling to the enemy?  Both sides are trying to be something they are not—patriots. 

Then on the home-front we must listen to those who pretend to have a concern for the American citizens.  They are the “experts” that pretend to know what is happening. Listen to the “experts” and you will become a “doomsday-prepper”.  The “experts” have been telling us since, what 1973 that the world’s oil will be gone in a short time.  Still the oil companies are making money, cars are still running, factories are still producing goods and the oil outlook has not changed.  So the “experts” come along and tell us if we don’t have more government control our economy will suffer.  We get the control and what happens-we suffer, with millions out of work.  We have “experts” that tell us we need more programs favoring the illegal minorities but when Americans speak out about this--we are practicing a form of racism that is dividing our country.  The “experts” tell us we need more laws to protect us from terrorist--we get more laws and now we need to be protected from the Homeland Security trained police and the TSA agents that violate our elderly and children.

I know I have come a long way around to the reason for disliking sports.  As Americans we are distracted.  Bread and circuses, gladiators and simulated wars worked for the Caesar’s of Rome.  The people need to be kept in the dark about what is happening in this country and around the world.  Sports has become the Roman Arena keeping Americans distracted while a world agenda is carried out by a few elite manipulator. It is not the distractors who are playing while America burns, it is the American citizens.

How can you say you love this country when it is crumbling all around us and you have no idea what is happening?  Get your head out of the sand and speak out against the lies that are being told daily by our government, the news media and those who have been elected to represent us before it is too late.

American Tax Dollars Support Killing Christians

 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:12

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10

 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, how long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? Rev.6:10

It has been a fact all down through history the Christian faith, those who live godly have suffered persecution and it has been the responsibility of Christians to look after the household of faith.  The result of this godly life and interest of taking care of their fellowman has cost many their lives.  In the past few years the number of Christians who have been killed for their faith has increased.  As American Christians we should be looking at the household of faith and the needs of those who are suffering for the cause of Jesus Christ but we have been silent to long.  

Often as Christians we are asked to stand up for what we believe.  Here in America we are often asked to sign petitions, march in protest of abortion clinics, send letters to our elected officials concerning the liberalization of our education but when it comes to supporting the Christians who live in countries that are hostile to Christianity we are silent. This is my statement of concern for the religious freedom of Christians in countries receiving financial and military aid from the United States.  It is my intent to bring about action by our government to stop sending aid to countries that persecute Christian by challenging American Christians to take action on the part of our fellow Christians.

Christians in America may be concerned about not saying Merry Christmas and replacing it with Happy Holidays or, if they can display the Nativity Scene in the public square or, if the Ten Commandments could be displayed on the courthouse lawn.  This is all important, but how can we forget the Christians who have been driven from their homes, lost they source of income, had their place of worship burned to the ground, or family members murdered because they are Christians?  How many time have we witnessed a Christian beheaded because of their faith?  How many of us have lost family and friends to those who want to stop the Christian faith?  When was the last time someone was put in prison for passing out Bibles or even witnessing to someone about their salvation?

I do not like to think that my tax dollars are supporting the murder of Christians but it is evident Christians are dying at the hands of those we support with our taxes.  The persecution of Christians in countries that are receiving financial and military aid from the United States should stop now.  American Christians are being taxed to send money to countries that are hostile to Christians.  Countries like Saudi Arabia and Israel.  (I am about to offend both Muslims and Jews.) Both countries are valued allies of the United States and both violate Christian beliefs and practices. 

As American Christians we should be concerned about these two countries.  Our government gives billions of dollars to these two countries. The Bush administration agreed to a large increase in annual military aid to Israel.   Annual military grants to Israel represent over 20% of the Israeli defense budget. U.S. military aid will increase from $2.4 billion in 2008 to $3.1 billion a year through 2018. About 75% of the aid is spent on American weaponry and services. (Israel itself in 2006 was the 9th largest arms exporter in the world.)
”Israel enjoys other privileges. While most countries receiving U.S. military aid funds are expected to use them for U.S. arms, ammunition and training, Israel can spend part of these funds on weapons made by Israeli manufacturers. Also, when it spends its U.S. military aid money on U.S. products, Israel frequently requires the U.S. vendor to buy components or materials from Israeli manufacturers. Thus, though Israeli politicians say that their own manufacturers and exporters are making them progressively less dependent upon U.S. aid, in fact those Israeli manufacturers and exporters are heavily subsidized by U.S. aid.

Israel also receives foreign aid from some other countries. After the United States, the principal donor of both economic and military aid to Israel is Germany. By far the largest component of German aid has been in the form of restitution payments to victims of Nazi atrocities. But there also has been extensive German military assistance to Israel during and since the Gulf war, and a variety of German educational and research grants go to Israeli institutions. The total of German assistance in all of these categories to the Israeli government, Israeli individuals and Israeli private institutions has been some $31 billion or $5,345 per capita, bringing the per capita total of U.S. and German assistance combined to almost $20,000 per Israeli. Since very little public money is spent on the more than 20 percent of Israeli citizens who are Muslim or Christian, the actual per capita benefits received by Israel’s Jewish citizens would be considerably higher.”  By Richard H. Curtiss Former U.S. Foreign Service Officer 

The Bush administration made the announcement of its $30 billion, 10-year military aid agreement with Israel to coincide with a separate deal to sell $16.7 billion in weaponry to Saudi Arabia.   The largest single recent U.S. foreign military sale to Saudi Arabia was a $9 billion contract for 72 F-15S fighter aircraft. The contract was signed in May 1993, and delivery of the F-15S aircraft was completed in 1999

America is supporting both these countries at a rate higher than we take care of our own people.   But, how do these countries treat Christians?  Let’s start with Israel the nation we feel we must give $30 billion dollars plus to each year.  The nation that Christian Zionist believe they are supporting “God’s Chosen People” is not so kind to their benefactors.  So how do the treat the followers of Jesus Christ?

In December of 1977 the Israeli government passed a law that made missionaries liable to five years’ imprisonment for attempting to persuade people to change their religion, and three years’ imprisonment for any Jew who converted. On April 1, 1978, the law prohibiting the offering of “material inducement” for a person to change his religion went into effect. A material inducement could be something as minor as the giving of a Bible.  Anti-Christian speeches were made in the parliament during debate on this law and one Parliament member called missionaries “a cancer in the body of the nation.”

Jewish religious leaders supported a religious ruling that copies of the New Testament should be torn out of any edition of a Bible owned by a Jew. Desecration of Christian property and churches—arson, window breaking, burning of the New Testament has be the history of the Jews toward the Christian community.  Some Jews wanted no Christians, whom they considered fallen Jews, in Israel. But Israel does not want the world to know they are in conflict with the Christian world: it couldn’t survive without it. This hatred, this violence, is the result of thousands of years of anti-Christian hatred by the Jews and everyone wants to pretend it does not exist.

Saudi Arabia-- there are Christians in Saudi Arabia, but it is listed as the second most difficult country to be a Christian.  All citizens must adhere to Islam and conversion to another religion is punishable by death. Public Christian worship is forbidden; worshipers risk imprisonment, lashing, deportation and torture. Evangelizing Muslims and distributing non-Islamic materials is illegal. Muslims who convert to Christianity risk honor killings. 

Blasphemy against Sunni Islam is also punishable by death, but the more common penalty is a long prison sentence.  Religious freedom is virtually non-existent. The Government does not provide legal recognition or protection for freedom of religion, and it is severely restricted in practice and the public practice of non-Muslim religions is prohibited.  The sentencing of a Lebanese Christian in May of this year to lashings and imprisonment for converting a Saudi coworker put the spotlight on the laws of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its intolerance of the Christian faith.

Let me add this, if Israel and Saudi Arabia have a problem with the Christian faith that is their right, but it is also our right not to send money or military aid to countries that deny Christians the right to worship the LORD in those countries.  If they are so offended by our Christian faith then don't take our money.  These same people come to this country and expect to be treated with respect and the right to practice their religion.  The same should apply in their country. 
The United States government has been indifferent to its obligation to speak out against reigns of terror now being plotted and waged against Christians. We know that the United States government has within its power and discretion to adopt policies that would limit the reigns of terror and protecting the rights of Christians.   

It is time for the Christians of America to take a stand against the U.S. government’s support of countries that deny Christians religious freedom.  Religious liberty is a God-given right.  It is the very foundation America was founded on and has for years defined the people of America.  It is the responsibility of Christians to get our government to do everything we can to secure the religious liberty of Christians suffering from persecution.  It is time to end our silence and to speak out against the persecution of our Christian brothers and sisters.  Christians have supported the religious freedom of Jews and Muslims while they in turn have continued to deny Christians the same freedom. 

It is time to remove our elected official from office who do not support stopping aid to countries that our persecuting Christians.  Let’s support our fellow Christians around the world.  

By the way, those who will say Christians benefit from this aid are wrong, both countries I mentioned don't help Christians so there is no loss of aid or benefit.

Will Russia Destroy Israel? Some Think So.

At the end of World War II the world was divided into two distinct camps- communism and capitalism.   This was referred to as the Cold War era.  Russia poised a worldwide threat to freedom and it was the duty of the United States of America to save the world from this evil Anti-Christ threat.  The US government engaged in the war on communism in Korea, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Eastern Europe and South America. 

Christian all across the United States were being told that the godless nation of Russia was in league with the Anti-Christ and that Mikhail Gorbachev was no doubt the Anti-Christ.  Then a terrible thing happened the former Soviet Union was no more.  Russia no longer posed a military threat to Europe—the Cold War was over and Gorbachev was no longer in power.  

The reason American citizens were told we have troops in Europe was to defend against an invasion from Russia.  Invade what country?  Well according to Christian Zionist preachers--Israel! 

Recently, I was listening to a popular TV preacher talking about how Russia would invade Israel.  For years I have just accepted this as a fact without searching the scriptures or researching where the idea that Gog and Tubal were Russia actually came from.  So, being inspired to look into the matter more deeply I set out on the journey to find the scriptural answer to the question, Will Russia attack Israel?  If they do it will not be for the reasons our End Time “experts” are telling us. 

In the book of Ezekiel chapter 38 and 39 we find the mention of Gog. 
38 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. KJV

It is from this scripture that all the theology concerning Russia is derived.  Many “experts” in the End Time Prophecy interrupt this scripture this way:
·         Magog- this is modern day Russia
·         Persia- this is modern Iran
·         Meshech, Tubal and Togarmah- this region is modern day Turkey
·         Libya- this is modern day Libya
·         Gomer- this is modern day Germany

Over thirty years ago this teaching was and still seems to be the accepted interpretation of this scripture.  Russia was the enemy of the United States and was viewed as the right hand of Satan—godless communism.  Today there are preachers still proclaiming Russia as the invader of Israel without any scriptural proof.  

Russia is no longer a threat but the US government leaders and the US media continue to give grief to Russia.  From supporting attacks on Russian minorities in Georgia, funding opposition parties in Russia, supporting anti-Russian activities in bordering countries, placing anti-missiles in bordering countries along the western border, maintaining US troops, missiles and aircraft based in Europe to “protect” against this evil nation, the US leadership continues fighting Russia.  As recently revealed the NSA continues its Cold War spying on Russian.   Russia poses no military threat so why is the US still acting like the Cold War is still on?  Maybe we are doing the bidding of another country who doesn’t like Russia.

With the falling of communism in Russia and the fear of the entire world going “red” gone, what will now be the “boogeyman” to create fear and paranoia?   The US government dislikes the Russian President Vladimir Putin because he has the courage to stand up against the direction US government leaders are taking America.  Russia is not the problem, Washington leadership is the problem.  How long will the American people continue to put up with the deceit, lies and loss of freedom that “keeping America safe” is being pushed on us? 

Americans should be concerned about our government getting in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Although this seems difficult since most of our government is already in bed with the Zionist.  We have two powerful political religions pulling strings in Washington and the American people are paying the bill for both groups.  How can we give money to Zionist Israel and to Islamic countries at the same time?  Whose side are we really on?  

We support Israel against Iran and Syria and support the elements of the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan.  The US government has been destroying one nation after another and setting up what looks like puppet regimes for the Muslim Brotherhood all the while doing the bidding of the Zionist lobby here in America.  My concern is that our elected leaders have made a pack with two devils and the American people will have to pay the piper.

So, should we be concerned about Russia?  I don’t think so.  At this point I am in more agreement with Putin than with Obama.  The American people are suffering from an identity disorder.  We cannot separate the personalities that our government leaders want us to be.  Are we friends with Russian?  Then we should stop the bad mouthing.  Are we friends with Zionist Israel?  Then stop funding the Islamic nations.  Are we friends with the Islamic nations?  Then stop supporting Israel. We should also stop spying on our allies.

We could all join John Hagee and his Zionist Christians and bring all this to a quick end.  His advice, “The United States must join Israel in a pre-emptive military strike against Iran to fulfill God’s plan for both Israel and the West.”  What he says we would get out of this is the Rapture.  The elect Christians would safely be “caught away” while the rest of the world goes through hell and yes Russia will be destroyed.

As Christians we should be the peacemakers of the world.  Our message is one of repentance and restoration not chaos and war.  Have we no concern for our Christian brothers and sisters in Egypt, in Syria, in Nigeria, in Kenya, in North Korea, in China, in Iran, in Iraq, in Sudan, in Afghanistan, in Israel where ever believers are suffering or are persecuted because of their faith in Jesus?  There are Christians in the countries many wish us to destroy with our drones and bombs.  Have we no Christian love for the “household of faith”?  My fear is that the False Prophet of the End Times in among us now and has deceived many into doing the work of the Anti-Christ.
