Today’s devotional is from Max Lucado’s Grace for the Moment:

Lay Down Your Cares

Praise the LORD,

God our Savior, who

helps us every day.

Psalm 68:19

Perhaps the heaviest burden we try to carry is the burden of mistakes and failures.  What do you do with your failures?

Even if you’ve fallen, even if you’ve failed, even if everyone else has rejected you, Christ will not turn away from you.  He came first and foremost to those who have no hope.  He goes to those no one else would go to and says, “I’ll give you eternity.”

Only you can surrender your concerns to the Father.  No one else can take those away and give them to God.  Only you can cast all your anxieties on the one who cares for you. What better way to start the day than by laying your cares at this feet?

Walking with the Savior

_________________________________________________________________

We must remember this during these tough and challenging times, when we are not sure what to trust or what we should be doing.

God is there for us, to give us rest, unload our burdens and even carry us when needed.

It is so easy to forget as we trudge through this world and all of the distractions and stuff it heaps on us daily.

We must remember to take some time each day to lay our cares and concerns at God’s feet.  He is waiting for us…

May God Bless You, until Christ Comes!

Amazing article and video, MUST SEE!!!

It not only illustrates how the world is moving away from the dollar as the major currency, but what state the world finds itself in and how the US role has been written off.  To quote the final guess, the US is “done”.

It is huge for the US to be the reserve currency, it helps drive demand for countries and people to keep our currency.  If that would ever stop, then you would see our dollars value tank as people/countries drop our dollar.  The dollar value tanking means inflation and hyper-inflation.

We are on that path, it is just a matter of how fast do we get there…

Putin proposes EU become reserve currency

Russia and Germany should dramatically increase their economic co-operation. That’s the message from Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to some of Germany’s top industrialists at a business forum in Berlin.

Interesting article, I agree that the Wiki links probably did not hurt Israel but instead help reinforce their case and shed light on the deception that was brought against them…

Netanyahu: Let Arabs say the truth out loud

In meeting with journalists prime minister estimates WikiLeaks leak did not damage Israel, expresses hope that Arab leaders would tell their people what they say behind closed doors about desire for attack on Iran

“This is an historic day for the relationship between journalism and diplomacy,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday following the uncovering of hundreds of thousands of documents by the WikiLeaks website. In a meeting in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu told journalists “your job will become much harder to do, as will ours.”

The documents revealed, among other things, that many Arab leaders called on the United States to attack Iran. “If the exposure causes the region’s leaders to refrain from saying what they think in private talks, then we have a problem,” Netanyahu said.

“But if the leaders make the statements publically there will be a significant change. When leaders are willing to tell their people the truth it promotes peace.” The prime minister added that “peace based on truth has a lasting chance.”

Prophecy Matters

Nov 22, 2010

Check out Jim’s group (www.prophecymatters.com) for site upgrades and added features and initiatives. We are making a push for a big 2011, to share with a hurting world that Bible prophecy does indeed matter for individuals, no matter where they are. PM will be announcing exciting new features in the coming weeks and we invite you to join us!

New polling data suggests that four-in-10 Americans now believe marriage has outlived its usefulness. Merely living together is a growing phenomenan—unheard of even a generation ago. Imagine our great-grandparents living in such a world!

There are myriad reasons but fundamentally, a growing number of Americans simply do not believe in the authority of Scripture. They do not believe the Bible is true or relevant today. This is directly responsible for the breakdown in biblical values. For a hundred years—as I’ve written many times—liberal scholars undermined Scripture and the Living God by first casting subtle doubt on the historicity of the Bible, beginning with Genesis. This is key in understanding where we are today.

Good article on North Korea and the situation we find ourselves in.  All of these prophecy signs seem to be converging and speeding up.  Anyways, good article from Rapture Ready’s Nearing Midnight section…

The North Korean Problem

North Korea has once again launched an unprovoked attack against South Korea. Last week, the North fired a barrage of artillery shells at the island of Yeonpyeong, killing four people and injuring dozens more.

In March, North Korea attacked a South Korean patrol boat and killed forty-six sailors. The North denied it was involved in the sinking, but investigators found overwhelming evidence pointing to a strike from a North Korean torpedo.

It is easy to see a clear pattern of escalation on the part of North Korea. For several years, Kim Jong Il alarmed his neighbors by either conducting a series of missile tests or by working on a nuclear program. The inability of the world powers to confront North Korea’s reckless behavior has caused us to reach a point that Kim Jong Il is willing to kill people to draw attention to himself or his future successor, his son, Kim Jong Un.

When I first heard about the TSA fiasco, an internal alarm went off.  I just couldn’t completely put my head around it but it just didn’t seem transparent.

Is this a trial run to see how open we are as a society to totalitarian methods of control?

Is this really for our protection?

Is this the overton window in action?

Look into it and judge for yourself but ask the questions.  This is definitely the type of control the Antichrist will exercise over the world once he assumes power.  This type of control and invasion into our private lives will be necessary for him to control the populace and buying/selling.

Scanning a Fearful Future: Part 1

Commentators, secular and religious, weigh in incessantly on all aspects of the issues of greatest concern for these angst-ridden times. Those issues of most profound worry are collapsing economy, loss of personal liberty, and what is going to happen in the immediate and long-term future.

One can almost physically feel the fear in the emails I receive daily. Worries over what the future holds fill the articles and, more to the point for this commentary, dominate the personal missives that search for answers that might provide some degree of comfort.

Is this foreshadowing how we (the US) will be transformed from a democratic republic to a dictatorship/oligarchy?

An oligarchy or dictatorship that will align us to become part of the one world government.

It has been a slow process over the last couple of decades for Russia, how about us…

WikiLeaked cable from Bob Gates: ‘Russian democracy has disappeared’

When Defense Secretary Robert Gates sat down with French Minister of Defense Herve Morin Feb. 8 in Paris, he had a harsh assessment of the Russian government and some severe differences with his French counterpart on several issues of international security.

“SecDef (Gates) observed that Russian democracy has disappeared and the government was an oligarchy run by the security services,” read a cable about the meeting classified by Assistant Secretary of Defense Alexander Vershbow and leaked to the self described whistleblower website WikiLeaks. The website posted Sunday just over 200 of the over 250,000 sensitive State Department documents it claims to have in its possession.

“President [Dmitry] Medvedev has a more pragmatic vision for Russia than [Prime Minister Vladimir] Putin, but there has been little real change,” Gates told Morin, according to the cable.

Israel is at the Heart of Prophecy

Nov 29, 2010

I was talking with a friend recently, and we were discussing questions we get while speaking.

One of the most popular is, “How do we know we are in the last days?” A perhaps more popular version of this question is, “How do we know Jesus is coming back soon?”

Ninety-nine percent of the time, I hear this question answered with a New Testament verse or verses. That of course is legitimate. However, there is a fascinating reference in the Old Testament, and it has become my favorite answer.

In Psalm 102:16, we read:

“When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.”

Preterists and others hostile to Israel and predictive prophecy answer that this must refer to Christ’s first coming. Yet…was the Lord building Zion on that electric night in Bethlehem? An emphatic “no.”

The Romans were pressing the inhabitants of the Holy Land under a dictatorial heel at that precise moment, and for a few centuries after that. In fact, after several decades of Jewish sovereignty under the leadership and aftermath of the Maccabees, who had taken control of Judea from the Seleucid Empire, that sovereignty came to an end.

In the first century, B.C., this Jewish rebel army gave way to the powerful Romans.

So at that stage of history, the Lord was not building Zion.

He has, however, been building Zion since the late 19th century, and now millions of Jews live in their ancestral land.

What will it be like here when people wake up to our situation?  We are in a similar and in some ways worst situation.  We must learn from the situation some of the European nations find themselves in.  We must prepare as we are in the line of dominoes.  What will it be like?

God has a plan for all of these end times signs, they are to wake us up and have us turn back to Him.  Time is growing shorter by the day, are you awake, are those you care for or interact with awake?  We need to make ourselves busy doing His will.  Hopefully, some of the secular farmers mentioned in the article wake up…

Driest November Since ’62 Unites Secular & Religious in Prayer

The sore lack of rain this winter has united the religious and secular populaces in public prayers for water.

Public prayer services for rain have been called throughout the country in recent weeks, with increasingly growing participation. For instance, in the traditionally anti-religious kibbutz Givat Brenner near Rehovot, dozens of secular farmers took part in prayers and shofar-sounding for rain last week.

The Givat Brenner event was organized by Ayelet HaShachar (Morning Star), an organization dedicated to giving a taste of religious Judaism to non-religious kibbutzim and moshavim around the country. The organization also sponsored similar prayers in Kibbutz Ein Harod last Wednesday, followed the next day by prayers on a boat in the middle of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).

The Kinneret is currently 214.07 meters below sea level – 107 centimeters lower than the forbidden “red line,” and only 80 centimeters above the even more forbidden “black line.” It has lost 20 centimeters in height over the past month, which has been the driest in Israel in the past 48 years. This marks the seventh consecutive year of near-drought conditions.

Giant space bubbles baffle astronomers

Two giant gas bubbles – each one 25,000 light-years wide – discovered in our galaxy are baffling astronomers.

The two vast structures, stretching to the north and to the south of the centre of the Milky Way, are so big that a beam of light, traveling at 186,282 miles per second, would take 50,000 years to get from the edge of one to the edge of the other.

Netanyahu to Obama: Jerusalem is not a settlement

Exchange between Israel, US continues; State Dept. says both parties responsible for creating conditions for successful negotiations.

The peace process threatened to spiral out of control Tuesday over Israeli plans to advance 1,345 housing units in Jewish neighborhoods of east Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had flown to the US Saturday night hoping to break the impasse in the stalled peace talks. Instead, US President Barack Obama publicly reprimanded him as the Palestinians reissued their threats to seek unilateral statehood.

Netanyahu tone changing; laying groundwork for possible first strike

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s tone on Iran is changing. For much of the year, he has been fully supportive of economic sanctions and diplomacy vis-a-vis Tehran. But on this week’s visit ton the U.S., the PM is now asking American officials to put a credible military threat on the table. Netanyahu is, I believe, beginning to lay the groundwork for a possible Israeli preemptive strike, if the U.S. and the West can’t stop Iran any other way.

Yesterday, I did an interview with NewsMax.com. Here are some excerpts:

“President Barack Obama isn’t doing enough to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands, and Israel may have to launch a military strike as a result, says author Joel Rosenberg, former political consultant to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports NewsMax.com. “Rosenberg, a New York Times best-selling author, recently published The Twelfth Imam, a novel. ‘It’s not simply dangerous that Iran’s leaders have publicly called for the annihilation of Israel and the U.S. and that Iran is rapidly pursuing nuclear weapons,’ he tells Newsmax.TV.

“’The problem in Iran is that the regime has an end-of-time theology. It believes we are living in the end of days. It (more…)

Joel’s book’s have a habit of changing from fiction to history.  This is because he writes them based on viewing world events through the third lens of scripture.  He gives an interesting breakdown of the Muslims concept of the 12th Imam and how dangerous Iran is due to their beliefs, something our administration is not considering…

10 QUESTIONS ON THE TWELFTH IMAM AND SHIA ISLAMIC END TIMES THEOLOGY

Last week, I was asked 10 questions on The Twelfth Imam by a Washington, D.C.-based news organization. We’ll see if they run the whole interview, but here are the answers I emailed back to them.

1.) Q: Why did you decide to write the book?

A: We are living on the brink of the apocalypse, but the world is asleep. Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said in July that he actually met with the Shia Islamic messiah, known as the Twelfth Imam. Few know that happened. Fewer still know what that means. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his government’s mission is to hasten the appearance of the Twelfth Imam on earth. What’s so dangerous is that in the Shia Islamic eschatology – or End Times theology – of these two men, they believe that their God-given mission in life is to destroy Judeo-Christian civilization as we know it, in order to accelerate the arrival of their so-called messiah to earth. Given their feverish efforts to build nuclear weapons, this is very dangerous stuff. The problem is that most world leaders aren’t paying attention to the eschatology driving Iranian foreign policy. Most Americans aren’t aware of it either. We have a Farsi-speaking Hitler rising, and the world is doing nothing decisive to stop him. Now, I’m a failed political consultant. But sometimes fiction has a way of capturing people’s imagination in a way that non-fiction doesn’t. Conservatives typically haven’t written much fiction – specifically political thrillers – over the years to educate, inspire and mobilize people on issues of great import, but we ought to. I want to take people on a spellbinding journey inside one of the darkest regimes in the world, the Iranian regime. I want to take people” inside the room,” as it were, as Iranian leaders plot their nuclear weapons strategy and plot the annihilation of Israel, which they call the “little Satan,” and the United States, which they call the “Great Satan.” Perhaps this novel, The Twelfth Imam, can play a small role in waking up a nation, a world, asleep at the switch.

2.) Q: Explain who the Twelfth Imam, or the Mahdi, is for those may not know.

A: The Twelfth Imam was a real, flesh-and-blood person who lived during the ninth century AD. Like the eleven Shia (more…)

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, THE VATICAN’S LATEST, PAINFUL PRONOUNCEMENT ON ISRAEL IS WRONG: Paul’s letter to Rome affirms that Jews are the chosen people

A new headline in the Jerusalem Post reads: “Vatican synod calls for end to Israel’s ‘occupation’: At conference on Christians in the Middle East, US Melkite archbishop says: ‘There is no longer a chosen people.’”

The New York Times headline reads: Bishops at Meeting Urge Israel to End Its Occupation of Palestinian Territories.” The Times reported: “In a final communiqué at the end of a two-week-long meeting at the Vatican on the plight of Christians in the Middle East, the bishops also urged Israel not to use the Bible ‘to wrongly justify injustices,’ apparently referring to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. But in a news conference Saturday, the archbishop in charge of the committee that drafted the communiqué, Cyrille Salim Bustros, appeared to go further, saying the Bible did not justify a Jewish presence in Israel. ‘The concept of the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians,” he said. “Sacred scripture should not be used to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestine.’”

Here is a link to the official Vatican translation of the “Message to the People of God” that the synod fathers of the Special Assembly for the Middle East of the Synod of Bishops approved on Friday, October 22, 2010.

Analysis: German tempers fray as U.S. policy gulf widens

(Reuters) – Germany‘s undiplomatic outbursts against U.S. policy, calling it “clueless” before a G20 summit, show growing estrangement on economics as America’s focus shifts away from transatlantic ties to domestic challenges and Asia.

“The Atlantic is getting wider,” said Anton Boerner, head of Germany’s Foreign Trade Association, who spoke of a “creeping alienation” between America and Europe, which has been exacerbated by the global financial crisis.

Germany and the United States often criticize each other’s approaches to aiding economic recovery, with U.S. calls for more expansive policy falling on deaf ears in fiscally disciplined Germany. But Berlin has taken the rhetoric to a new level.

Christian woman sentenced to death in Pakistan ‘for blasphemy’

The arrogance of the US, we are so on the wrong side of this conflict.  How can we call it wrong for Israel to build apartments in their own cities?  God’s word is coming true before our eyes, Jerusalem is becoming a burdensome stone, and we are being cut to pieces by standing against Israel.

In Curt Exchange, U.S. Faults Israel on Housing

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s criticism of new Israeli housing plans for East Jerusalem, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s even sharper retort, have thrown the Middle East peace talks into jeopardy, with the dispute over Jewish settlements looming as a seemingly insuperable hurdle.

Marco Longari/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images

Masked Palestinian protesters were enveloped by dust from a passing truck on Tuesday during clashes with Israeli forces in the Arab village of Issawiya in east Jerusalem.

The Obama administration is struggling to restart direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, which stalled last month after the expiration of a partial freeze on settlement construction in the West Bank. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to meet Mr. Netanyahu in New York on Thursday, while Egypt sent two top officials to Washington to discuss ways to salvage the process.

But the brusque exchange between Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu reflected again the gulf between Israel and the United States over settlements — an issue Mr. Obama initially made the centerpiece of his Middle East diplomacy. Palestinian officials said Israel’s latest announcement threatened the talks and could prompt a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

When asked in about Israel’s plans for 1,000 housing units for a contested part of East Jerusalem, Mr. Obama said, “This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations.”

“I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort involved to get a breakthrough,” the president added during his visit to Indonesia. “Each of these incremental steps can end up breaking trust.”

A few hours later, Mr. Netanyahu’s office responded with a statement, saying that “Jerusalem is not a settlement; Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel.”

Is the Fed’s Debt-Buying Unconstitutional?

Is the Federal Reserve violating the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers in its new purchases of $600 billion worth of U.S. Treasuries? Is the Fed engaging in an unconstitutional monetization of the   U.S. Congress’ out of control spending spree that is really a bridge loan to fiscal insanity?

At minimum, should the Fed be avoiding these purchases until the fiscally debauched U.S. Congress, packed to the ceiling with fiscal dipsomaniacs, follows Great Britain’s lead in its fiscal abstinence that may “out Thatcher” even Margaret Thatcher?

Isn’t the problem fiscal incontinence and regulatory misfeasance, and business uncertainty about all of that, which is creating joblessness? Not a lack of liquidity and not deflation, which is not a clear and present danger, as instead inflation is still with us?

And isn’t the Fed dangerously habituating the stock, bond and commodities markets to a “new normal” of constant quantitative easing?

Germany Unwittingly Adopts A Silver Standard Due to Soaring Price

By Toni Straka of The Prudent Investor

Germany Unwittingly Adopts A Silver Standard Due to Soaring Price

Silver’s sky-shot to a new 30-year high of $27.73 per ounce has led to a new phenomenon in Germany. For the first time in history it is theoretically possible to buy two last series of silver coins with a denomination of €10 and a silver content of 0.535 ounces for less than the silver equivalent. According to a report in German Daily “Welt” the soaring silver price has forced the German government to bring forward the starting time of sales of the 2 commemorative coins into October to save face. The coins now have a value of €10.66 but have to be sold at the denominated Euro value.

As this story is widely circulating in Germany it can be expected that these coins will be sold out by tomorrow.
Germany’s time on a theoretical silver standard – the country was on a bi-metallic standard before the Weimar Republic in the 1920s – won’t last long, though.

In order to counter soaring silver prices and keep the denominated value below the silver value the country has announced it will reduce the silver content to 10 grams or 0.3215 ounces in its commemorative silver coin line from January 2011.

The US is in even deeper shit.

They have to distribute the national park set in the 5 OZ blown version for 120 dollars a piece.

As this also needs to be done according to US law, they’ll be sold out in 1 day when they sell them.

Launch will be in december and the maximum order quantity is 1000 pc for national parks and 50 sets per citizen.

AND!!!!

THEY HAVE TO MAKE THEM UNTILL DEMAND STOPS!!!

That’s why they wait untill the end of the year to do so because at first it was planned after the summer.

This is very disconcerting.  It is not like missiles get shot everyday in America.  This isn’t Israel, or is that where we are headed.  We need to keep an eye on this.  You can see from the picture that it is definitely a missile, and a very large one by the trail.  There is also a link to video of it at the end of the article.

Missile Shot Off Los Angeles Still a Mystery for Pentagon Officials

A video that appears to show a missile launch off the coast of California is so far “unexplained” by anyone in the military, a Pentagon spokesman told reporters Tuesday morning 

Col. Dave Lapan said he is not able to concur with an official from North American Aerospace Defense Command/U.S. Northern Command who told Fox News earlier that there was “no threat to the homeland.” 

Lapan said the military doesn’t know exactly what the so-called mystery missile was so can’t say it’s harmless.

A local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles on Monday evening captured on video the image of the “spectacular” projectile flying about 35 miles out to sea, west of Los Angeles and north of Catalina Island.

The earthquake struck at a depth of 69kms and about 193kms south-south-east of Jakarta, the Indonesian capital located on the northwestern coast of Java, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Earlier, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake hit western Indonesia.

Russia to `Insist’ U.S. Coordinate With G-20 Members on Monetary Measures

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will “insist” on global coordination of any so-called quantitative easing measures by government when he meets with counterparts from the Group of 20 nations this week.

Such actions will need to be planned in advance in order to avoid creating risks for other markets and economies, senior Kremlin economic adviser Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters in Moscow today.

Russia will also argue against instituting targets on current account surplusses or deficits, Dvorkovich said.

Number of the Week: $10.2 Trillion in Global Borrowing

By Mark Whitehouse

$10.2 trillion: The amount of money advanced-nation governments will need to borrow in 2011

As the debts of advanced countries rise to levels not seen since the aftermath of World War II, it’s hard to know how much is too much. But it’s easy to see that the risk of serious financial trouble is growing.

Next year, fifteen major developed-country governments, including the U.S., Japan, the U.K., Spain and Greece, will have to raise some $10.2 trillion to repay maturing bonds and finance their budget deficits, according to estimates from the International Monetary Fund. That’s up 7% from this year, and equals 27% of their combined annual economic output.

Aside from Japan, which has a huge debt hangover from decades of anemic growth, the U.S. is the most extreme case. Next year, the U.S. government will have to find $4.2 trillion. That’s 27.8% of its annual economic output, up from 26.5% this year. By comparison, crisis-addled Greece needs $69 billion, or 23.8% of its annual GDP.

U.N. Human Rights Council Takes Aim at New Target: United States

The United Nations Human Rights Council, a conclave of 47 nations that includes such notorious human rights violators as China, Cuba, Libya and Saudi Arabia, met in Geneva on Friday, to question the United States about its human rights failings.

It heard, among other things, that the U.S. discriminates against Muslims, that its police are barbaric and that it has been holding political prisoners behind bars for years.

Russia urged the U.S. to abolish the death penalty. Cuba and Iran called on Washington to close Guantanamo prison and investigate alleged torture by its troops abroad. Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, told it must better promote religious tolerance. Mexico complained that racial profiling had become a common practice in some U.S. states.

Great balls of fire over Canada: NASA investigates

The Canadian Press

Date: Thursday Nov. 4, 2010 4:27 PM ET

MONTREAL — Great balls of fire have been reported swooping over Eastern Canada and several U.S. states.

Even NASA’s on the case.

There are different theories about what was behind the sighting of those fireballs. A NASA spacecraft got a closer look at one of the possible sources today.

The spacecraft flew past Hartley 2 — taking closeup pictures after the comet made one of its closest passes by Earth this week.

But one expert is skeptical of reports that any fireballs came from Hartley — which is roughly 1.2 kilometres wide and spews deadly cyanide gas.

Scientist Peter Brown says his meteor group at the University of Western Ontario tracked one of two fireballs while the other was tracked by NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.
