A load of topics and articles this morning, there are many prophecies in the process of fulfillment.

Seen any of these in the MSM?  Maybe a few but not enough.

It is amazing what is occurring these days.  Once one opens their eyes, the battle we are in is apparent.  I am not talking out a physical battle or struggle but a spiritual one.  Through a combination of deception, ignorance, and naivety:  we find ourselves in an incredible situation.

How can a group boldly make the threats and statements that this Islamic organization makes without any thought of backlash?  The audacity of their statement is almost beyond belief, but you know what, this world will submit and is submitting one little piece at a time.  It will be interesting to see if any MSM outlets pick up on this. Any bets?

My bet is none will.  It really shows how far gone we are as a nation (world) and the late hour we find ourselves in.  I am not saying the people of our nation are gone,  but we have lost control of the “machine” that controls much of our lives.  Too many are asleep and caught up in this world.  I am glad to see WND will not back down.  They need our support and prayers.

In the end, the question is as Paul stated in Romans 12:1-3.

Romans 12:1-3 – (NKJV)

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Are you of this world, conforming to it, or part of Christ’s kingdom and just a visitor?

God Bless!

Islamic group threatens WND

A man who says he represents the United Muslim Nations International organization has warned WND to “moderate” its reporting on issues involving Islam because of how Muslims may react.

The warning came in an email to WND from Faarooq al Mohammedi, who said he was asking on behalf of the Muslim organization that WND “comply as it would be in the companies (sic) best interest as we would not want to take you down the same rout (sic) as we have with other non-complaint media firms.”

The email warned WND to take “extra precaution when publishing religiously sensitive material or in creating religiously sensitive suspicions about peoples (sic) religious beliefs and practices.”

He threatened, “We would appreciate it if you could tighten your screening and moderation processes of articles to be published, any fake material published by WND will be taken as a breach of world news standards, religiously sensitive matters are to be based on solid and undeniable facts, failure to produce proofs of such published articles will give us no option but to bring about the complete removal of WND online as well as from the public in any print media.”

The essence of the warning was that WND needed to project an attitude of dhimmitude, the subservient role demanded of nonbelievers in a Muslim society. Dhimmis “recognize” their inferior status and appropriately serve the master Muslims.

It is amazing in the following two articles how contorted our “religions” have become today.  Satan has been working overtime as he too senses time is short.

What Rick is doing is fulfilling prophecy in two ways.  It is leading to a falling away of the church from foundational Bible beliefs, the Rock, to build a church on.  It is also beginning / aiding the roots of “One World Religion”.  Helping set the stage for the coming antichrist.

Both the authors do a great job laying out the comparision for the two sides Rick is trying to merge.  It is not possible to bridge the gap and still remain grounded on the Rock.  Deception is so great these days, I can see why Jesus said over and over when speaking of the last days: “Do not be deceived!”

I think finally God is showing me what it means to be watchful or a Watchman.  If you are not studying Bible prophecy, you have a greater risk of being deceived.  You don’t know what to look out for or may be too caught up in this world to even notice the path you are on.

Which road are you on?  (Two Roads, Two Gates, One Goal)

God Bless!

Rick Warren’s bridge to Islam

I’ve had a number of issues with Rick Warren over the years.

But, with his latest effort to find common theological ground with Muslims and suggesting Christians and Muslims worship the same God, the man dubbed “America’s Pastor” by the secular media is getting very close to heresy – if not crossing the line.

Here is the key to illustrating his error: Do Muslims even claim to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, as Christians and Jews do? No, they do not. They believe God did not create a covenant with Isaac and Jacob, but rather with Abraham’s firstborn son Ishmael. They believe the Jewish and Christian Bibles are misrepresentations of truth. They believe the Quran accurately and faithfully represents the true personality and will of God.

This is not a minor theological difference. It is as basic and fundamental as it gets.

And the differences grow from there.

The following two articles/video do a good job laying out what it means to be a “True” Christian.  I put quotes around the true because I have never liked that label, either you are a Christian or you are not, though I understand there needs to be some way to distinguish via text discussions.

The pastor in the video is pretty hard on Franklin Graham as missing the mark.  I do agree with the pastors statements on faith, and I don’t think Franklin Graham went far enough to explain his reasoning and beliefs.  He walked that PC line and tried to remain polite and non-confrontational.  I think that was more out of shock of being ambushed as he was there to talk about his ministry in Africa and also out of politeness and not wanting to escalate the debate.  I do begrudge him for that.

That being said, I think we do need to get more bold in our statements on Christ, God’s Word, and our beliefs.  Time is short.  You can see that I think if you compare this year to 10 years ago, faith is a lot more front and center as a controversial issue, even with a year ago, you can see the escalation.

The second article does a great job laying out what we do know about Obama’s faith choices with his own words and writings.  It lays out the facts about the church he chose and what “journey” he has taken that shaped him for the last 10+ years.  It is a pretty stunning contrast to Christianity as we know it and well done.  Take sometime to read through it yourself.

God Bless!

Pastor’s take on Obama and Christianity

——————–

Is Obama really a true Christian?

Rev. Franklin Graham last week revealed that President Obama confided to him and his father during a recent visit to North Carolina: “I don’t go to church.”

Publicly, Obama insists he’s a practicing Christian.

“I have no idea what he really believes,” Graham said during an appearance on MSNBC.

It’s a deepening mystery. Pundits on both the left and right question the president’s faith. The growing debate marks a turning point in American politics, where discussing the personal religious beliefs of an elected official or candidate is taboo.

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” doubts Obama is a practicing Christian.

“I just don’t believe it,” he said recently.

Maher suspects the president is an atheist.

GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum says Obama follows a “phony theology” not based on the Bible and preached by radicals.

I recently picked up a book by Jack Kelly on the seven things you need to know to understand end times prophecy.  It was a quick read but packed full of insights.  I am always looking for books that boil down the concepts the Bible lays out around End Times Prophecy, especially those that put it into context and on a rough “time-line”, maybe a better terminology would be “order of events”.

This book does that the best I have ever seen.  It also lays out key principles to follow with studying any Bible prophecy including: intended audience, translation, pronoun use, etc.

This book is the new book that I will hand out to those I talk to about Bible Prophecy that are just getting started, unpacking all of God’s wisdom of things to come.

Pick it up and take a look at it, I guarantee you will not be disappointed and will have at least one “ah-ha” moment, I had several.

Enjoy!

This is an amazing article by Jack Kelly.  I have been reading and listening to Romans recently and I had so many ah-ha’s while reading his article below that I lost count.

He does a wonderful job unpacking how we were designed to work and how sin has corrupted and confused that design.

I have added in the Scripture text that he referenced so that you can see God’s word on the subject.

Enjoy!

Body, Soul, And Spirit

by Jack Kelly


For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. (Hebr. 4:12-13)

Some people view the soul and body interchangeably, while others think the soul and spirit are the same. But it’s more accurate to think of them as separate components.  Our soul is the conscious part of us, composed of mind (intellect), will, and emotions.   It makes choices and controls our behavior by giving orders to the body. Our spirit is the subconscious part, an internal adviser to the conscious soul.  It’s  our conscience.
