Todd did a great job laying out one of the current delusions covering the world.  God warned that in the last days He would pour out strong delusions on the unbelievers so that they would be mislead.  We are ripe for the picking, this world we live in, and I feel the harvest is very close.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Our First Deity President

I had already concluded that America had made one of the greatest political mistakes by reelecting Barack Obama. Last Monday, I had to shield my eyes and ears from watching that error being played out. The good news–if you call it that–is that we are at the halfway point of his administration.

It is rather spooky to see how the liberal media has applied labels to Obama that offend the core biblical values of most Christians. Newsweek’s May 21, 2012, issue caused a stir when it declared Obama the country’s “first gay president.” The president lived up to this title when, while speaking about civil liberty accomplishments, he gave the first ever shout-out to a gay bar in an inaugural address.

The far worse classification being used by people are ones that directly compare Obama to God. They are becoming so numerous, he could just as well be called our first deity president. Here are some examples:

A Florida A&M professor named Barbara Thompson published a book titled, The Gospel According to Apostle Barack. In this book, Thompson likens Obama to Jesus Christ.

Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ.

Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama “our lord and savior.”

“This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”–Michelle Obama, at a campaign rally on April 17, 2012.

In a cover story for the inauguration, Newsweek had a side image of Obama with the title “The Second Coming.”

JD a few weeks back did a great job unpacking Ezekiel 38 and connecting it to today’s players and headlines.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

JD did a great job unpacking the coming Psalm 83 / Isaiah 17 conflict a few weeks back.  He lays out the players and headlines they tie the current enemies of Israel to the enemy’s mentioned in the Bible.

I read a statistic recently that really jumped out at me.  Americans on average spend about 140 hours each month in front of the TV.  Now I knew it was high but had no idea it was that high.  (There are 168 hours in a week!)

My heart really sunk when a couple of days later I read another article about how much time do we spend in God’s word.  Can it even be counted in hours for the week? or month?  We are jammed packed with one minute devotionals.  But do we spend anytime reading Gods actual word, and pondering it, studying it.

It hit me last week how far we have strayed from God’s actual word.  On Sunday our worship leader read the scripture from “The Message” translation (interpretation) of the Bible.  My wife turned to me and stated: “why do we need to recite an interpretation of God’s word when we have God’s actual word!”  I must say it was a brilliant observation, one I think we quite often overlook.  We spend so much time and money on interpretations, and none in God’s literal word.

So getting back on track, you have totaled up your hours for the week, how many of those are from God’s literal word?  (I (more…)

Amazing sermon.  It really rings true, both in the Glorification of God and the conviction I feel in my heart.  I actually jumped in my seat when around the 11:50 min mark he talks about our reaction to God’s commandments in our life.  It rang so true.

Another quote by Paul that stood out is when talking about the shocking truth about Christianity and the Bible.

“There really is a God and this book really is true.”

That’s only a few of many great truths and plainly spoken.

He really explains why we believe the Gospel.

I heard this audio again recently and was just taken back by how true it is.

If you are interested in just how bad it is or how pervasive it has gotten, watch the movie Agenda – Grinding down America there are also some links to portions of it on you tube (here or here or inserted below), but it is so worth the $11 to get the full version on DVD.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Wow, what a great article and reminder for those of us that are wading into the muck as watchmen.  The first paragraph is so loaded with the concise truth.  And it gets even better from there…

A casual observation of the news headlines any day of the week can cause a  person to feel overwhelmed. It seems as if “everything” is coming at us from every direction at the same time. As a Christian, we are to be ever-watchful; putting our faith and trust in the Lord. The times in which we live are evil and wicked. The changes in our society are enough to not only cause us to feel overwhelmed, but also surrounded and helpless at times.

A verse from Proverbs was also quoted later on by Lea that really has had a profound effect on my over the last few months.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5.

It is the next verse that really solidifies my comfort with letting go of my own will.  It is the promise that God gives us if we take the leap of faith and hand over control.

“Seek His will in all you do and He will show you which path to take.” – Proverbs 3:6

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Depending Upon Ourselves

Lea Sylvester


A casual observation of the news headlines any day of the week can cause a  person to feel overwhelmed. It seems as if “everything” is coming at us from every direction at the same time. As a Christian, we are to be ever-watchful; putting our faith and trust in the Lord. The times in which we live are evil and wicked. The changes in our society are enough to not only cause us to feel overwhelmed, but also surrounded and helpless at times.

Never fear! We have the blessed assurance that come what may, we need only look to our Lord. If we are absorbed with every news story (which all seem to be “bad” or “worse” or “even worse than we imagined”) that comes across the news in whatever form we might receive it, are we focusing on God? Of course, we are not to put our heads in the sand and act as if nothing is wrong. Everything seems to be wrong!  But, these are the times which will separate the “men from the boys,”so to speak.

To begin with, perhaps we need to be reminded that we were not given the spirit of fear. II Timothy 1:7 tells us, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” We have all the “tools” we need in order to keep our proper perspective of this life.

This scripture tells us that instead of fearing [anything], we have other ways to deal with situations. We look at anything (more…)
