Peter and John Running to the Tomb 1898

Tucked away in a central Parisian museum that was once a railway station, there hangs an Easter painting quite unlike any Gospel masterpiece created before or after it. It is not painted by a Rembrandt or a Rubens or the patron saint of artists, Fra Angelico. The painting is the work of a little-known Swiss painter. For those who make a trip to see it, viewing the canvas is a special spiritual experience in their lives.

A member of a group sent this to me in response to a previous posting: Weird to suggest scripture on your side. Jesus made fun of people who accumulate wealth. Nothing in bible suggests Jesus would oppose inheritance or income tax. So many people pretend to be bible scholars without reading the bible.

The Lord is a Man of War and Failed American Manhood

March 19, 2014 1 comment

“The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name (Exodus 15:3).”

To the modern day milquetoast, feminized, peace-at-all-cost boys in America this is a rather strange depiction of the Lord. The reason is less complicated than one might imagine. For several decades, the church in America has been content to abandon the warrior, masculine aspects of the God of the Bible and replace Him instead with an adaptation that suits America’s “nicer than Jesus” mentality.

Liberals Love Racism

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD March 10, 2014
 
          

Racism has been such a successful political and money-making tool for the left that liberals are willing to invent it where it does not exist, conceive new forms of racism when it is in decline, and to sustain it, even become racists themselves.

In regard to race, there are two inhabitants of Liberal Land: (1) the white liberal ethno-masochist , whose self-hatred manifests itself politically by identifying with groups that he or she deems equally hated as a desperate plea for acceptance and love and (2) the race opportunists, whose ethnocentric positions are simply an element of a political campaign or business plan, where there are votes to be had or money to be made by prolonging an imaginary problem.

If You don’t think you have fear of death, think again. The Bible says it is the doorway Satan uses

Archdiocese of Washington ^ | February 4, 2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope

Posted on Tuesday, February 04, 2014 1:04:51 PM by NYer

In Sunday’s Mass (Feast of the Presentation) there was an excerpt from the Letter to the Hebrews which describes our most basic and primal fear. The Hebrews text both names it and describes it as being the very source of our bondage: The Fear of Death

But I am not convinced that many of us understand the phrase as richly as possible, for “death” here is as much an allegory as referring to the actual and singular event of our passage from this world. In order to unlock the secret of the text I want to suggest to you an interpretation of the text that will allow its powerful diagnosis to have a wider and deeper effect.

Consider then this text from Hebrews:

Since the children have flesh and blood, [Jesus] too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. (Heb 2:14-15)

Now this passage is clear enough that the first origin of our bondage to sin is the devil. But it also teaches that the devil’s hold on us is the “fear of death.” This is what he exploits to keep us in bondage.

When I explore this teaching with people I find that it is difficult for many to understand it at first. For many, especially the young, death is rather theoretical. This is especially so today when medicine has so successfully pushed back the boundary of sudden death. Every now and then something may shake us out of our complacency about death (perhaps a brush with death) but as a general rule the fear of death is not something that seems to dominate the thoughts of many. So what is meant by the “fear of death” and how does it hold us in bondage?

Satan falling from heaven, as depicted by Gustave Dore in an illustration for John MIlton\’s \”Paradise Lost\”.

In his first homily, given on March 14th, Pope Francis cautioned the faithful that “he who does not pray to the Lord, prays to the devil.” http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Content/Site140/Blog/2887satanfallin_00000002086.jpg“When we do not profess Jesus Christ,” he further insisted, “we profess the worldliness of the devil, a demonic worldliness.” Since that day, he has spoken often of the one he has called the “prince of this world,” and the “father of lies.” And, in the book, On Heaven and Earth, then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio devoted an entire chapter to “The Devil”, warning that Satan’s fruits are “destruction, division, hatred and calumny.”

100-Foot Jesus Statue to Be Built in Nazareth?

A Christian Arab is working on his plan to build a statue of Jesus in Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus which is now dominated by Arab Muslim citizens of Israel.

rprprprp

rprprprp (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

It will be, he says, larger than the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

\”Slowly, but surely, the Christian identity in Nazareth is beginning to disappear,\” said Bishara Shlayan, a Christian merchant seaman from Nazareth who has come up with the plan, according to Fox News.

Shlayan told The Jerusalem Post he is raising funds for the project from both Israeli Arab Christians and Jews.

The statue would sit atop Mount Precipice, from where a mob tried to throw off Jesus only for Him to walk through them without any harm, as recorded in Luke 4:29-30. The site is owned by the Jewish National Fund, a quasi-governmental, non-profit organization.

Last month, Israel\’s Tourism Minister Uzi Landau told Shlayan if he starts the project \”we will bless it.\” Official confirmation, however, is yet to come.

Churches are expected to join the effort to build the statue, said Shlayan, who has formed an organization called Diglei Habrit, or Flags of the Covenant, which would undertake the project. Shlayan wants international Christian organizations also to support it.

Nazareth\’s population is 69 percent Muslim and 30.9 percent Christian, according to 2009 data by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics.

The plan is likely to face opposition from some people and groups. \”People who are against it, it comes from jealousy,\” said Shlayan, adding that some Muslims and Jews are not happy with it.

The opponents include the supporters of the new Muslim mayor, Ali Salam, who have said they would prefer a statue of the mayor rather than that of Jesus.

\”I don\’t believe in statues, but it is a symbol of love and peace,\” Shlayan said.

The project is part of Shlayan\’s larger plan to start a Christian Arab political party, which would be called \”Bnei Habrit [Allies of the Covenant], the Christian party of Israel,\” and support Israel as a Jewish state and national or army service for Arabs.

Robert Goldberg, an ex-officio member of the Board of Trustees of The Jewish Federations of North America (formerly UJC) has shown support for the proposed party, Shlayan said.

The Lord’s coming is near. And though we have all been well taught that the word “Advent” means “coming” there is the danger that we think we are only passively waiting for him to come. It is not just that the Lord is coming to us, but we are also journeying to him. In fact, as the Advent prayers in the Roman Missal instruct, we ought to run (don’t walk) and hasten, to greet him as he draws near.

The persecution of Christians tells us that Christ\’s over evil \”is near\”, over \”worldly powers \” for whom religion is a \”private matter \” and who forbid worship of God.

At Mass this morning at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis spoke of the final struggle between God and Evil, which the end of year liturgy offers us in these days.

With over 500 pages and 1,200 footnotes, Ted Flynn’s book, “Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World,” details many of the agendas of the global ‘elite’ community.

 

****************************

 

With several thousand quotes it uses the words of prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders to describe their NWO vision and their plans to bring it about as well as the convergence, on a global basis, of multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order.

Flynn writes that there is a confluence of events pointing to major changes that for many years have been coming to the world and they appear to be coming toward us more quickly now. Flynn argues that an 1846 heavenly apparition, a prophecy delivered by the Blessed Virgin Mary to two peasant children and approved by the Catholic Church is a stark and terrible summary of the major changes that have been coming to the world in general but the West and America in particular:

Billy Graham Sounds Alarm For 2nd Coming | Prophecy

October 23, 2013 1 comment

(Before It\’s News)

According to this breaking story from WND, Billy Graham has put out the call that the ’2nd Coming’ of Jesus Christ is soon upon us. How will we know Him when He returns? Will He be dressed in modern day clothing? Will He speak English? Is He already here upon the Earth and we do not know it? Have we really reached ‘the last days’? A video at the bottom of the page examines the 2nd Coming, pole shift and a catastrophic global earthquake that is prophesied to come along with His return.

The message was delivered, but was it received?… “C-Span footage shows her calmly walking to the dais where she began making statements about God, the founding of the United States, our Constitution, and the influence that Freemasonry played in the founding of our country. She warned House members that they could not serve two masters and that God will not be mocked. Unsurprisingly, Mrs. Reidy was whisked from the dais and ultimately taken to George Washington University Hospital for “mental evaluation.” She was released after about two hours of evaluation.”

Why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? Was the most extensive judgment found anywhere in the Bible outside of the book of Revelation actually for the sin of inhospitality, not homosexuality?

 

People find what they want in the Bible. If one looks hard enough, he can find “biblical” support for reincarnation, Eastern religions, Jesus as a guru, divorce for any reason, and flying saucers. Every cult of Christianity uses the Bible to validate its claims and so does some of the occult.

It was 2:AM when suddenly I sat straight up in bed. A moment earlier during REM sleep (rapid eye movement) when most dreams or “night visions” occur, a last piece of an important puzzle had fallen into place, shaking me from slumber.

 

I had been wrestling with certain images and enigmatic information for years, trying to make sense of what I had found. But not until recently had something deeper troubled me. It was as if an ominous voice somewhere was ready to show me what I was finally able to receive.

 

Of course I was very familiar with transcendent subject matter. I had been involved with religious institutions for more than 30 years in official capacities including as an executive in the largest evangelical organization in the world. During that same time I had appeared on international television and radio programs with opportunity to expand my presence to a regular audience, if desired.

Many assume when God created the Sun and the Moon that He did so for light, heat, gravity, and other natural mechanisms. While those facts seem obvious, when looking at Genesis 1:14, we learn of four other purposes behind why the lights in the heavens were created and placed where they are. The Bible says these are for “signs,” “seasons,” “days,” and “years.”

 

The Hebrew word for signs in this context is owth, a word meaning a “miraculous sign,” “omen,” or “warning.” It signifies, among other things, that God created the heavenly bodies to communicate important matters at particular times to His covenant people.

 

 

 

 

 

The next reason God created the sun and the moon is for “seasons.” Again, in our Western mindset, we figure God is talking about winter, spring, summer, and fall. This is the farthest from the truth. In Hebrew, the word here is mow’ed and is accurately translated as “an appointed time” or “divine appointment” especially related to “sacred seasons” or Feast days. This same Hebrew word is translated into English in Leviticus 23 as “feast” where it talks about the Feasts of the Lord. At first, these two words—appointments and feasts—seem about as far apart as you can get. This is why one needs to keep the Hebrew language in perspective so as not to miss the deeper conveyances of this text. The word mow’ed implies that God has a day timer or calendar on which He keeps predetermined “appointments” with human history and that are connected with His Feasts or Holy Days. For example, in the Book of Revelation it says that the Messiah was slain “from the foundations of the world.” This means God the Father knew the year, the month, the day, and the exact time His Son would die and how this event would be played out in fulfillment of the Levitical feasts of Israel.

Finally, God declares that the sun and the moon were created to determine “days and years.” Obviously, this has nothing to do with our modern calendar, which was created by a pagan Roman ruler and is based on the sun. The Muslim calendar is based on the moon.

With an eye toward stepping in and reorganizing everything from our social and economic structure to the U.S. Constitution, it appears that Obama’s plan to gain control involves stirring up discord and agitating every area of society to the point of near-collapse.

A couple of points need clarification at the beginning of this entry having to do with 1) date-setting; and 2) extra-biblical sources for interpreting end-times prophecy. Setting dates in particular for eschatological affairs have been illustrated historically to be unwise, discrediting those who make such predictions concerning the timing of future events.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In general, Christians should simply always be ready for the end of the age and the coming of Christ, because, “Ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42). Jesus further told His followers that the exact date of His arrival would be known by “no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

While the particular moment of His appearance thus remains a mystery, elsewhere Jesus explained that the “signs of the times” can be discerned (Matthew 16:3), and when His closest disciples asked Him frankly, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” He provided a long list of specific indicators that would herald His arrival. He then added that, “When ye shall see these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled” (Matthew 24:3; 33–34). Therefore, while most Christians agree they cannot know the exact “hour” of Christ’s coming or the end of the age, they can know the “season.”

…..John Brown, who had declared himself to be a communist, had organized terrorist attacks in Kansas which included the murder of entire families who did not own slaves, and the murder of free black men. “Perhaps most appalling,” writes Fleming, “were the murders of James P. Doyle and his two oldest sons, while Doyle’s wife, Mahala, pleaded frantically for their lives . . . . The Doyles were immigrants from Tennessee who . . . had no interest in owning slaves.” Brown claimed that his purpose was “to strike terror into the hearts of the proslavery people.” He planned even larger acts of terrorism at Harpers’ Ferry in 1859 where he was apprehended by U.S. Marines led by Colonel Robert E. Lee, and he was hanged for his crimes.

A simple image of a Lynchburg, Va., Marine and his bride praying before their wedding has gone viral.

In the photo, Bre and Josh Curtas are seen holding hands from around a corner so that the groom cannot see the bride.

According to Bre, who started a Tumblr account after the photo went viral, the future husband and wife were were praying for their marriage.

“My husband prayed that God would bless our marriage, that through thick or thin together we would never lose hope in one another,” she wrote. “That instead of focusing on each others imperfections we would always rely on Christ’s perfection.”

…..”Going back to 2008, consider the unprecedented messianic rhetoric that reporters, politicians, celebrities, and even preachers first used in celebrating the “spiritual nature” of Obama’s meteoric rise from near obscurity to U.S. president, and how this reflected people’s strong desire for the coming of an earthly savoir.

By February 2009, Obama had replaced Jesus Christ as America’s number-one hero according to a Harris poll, and dedication to his come-one, come-all mysticism has continued to spread in esoteric circles, with evangelists of the new religion calling for the “tired” faith of our fathers to be replaced with a global new one. Terry Neal, writing for the Hamilton Spectator, is such a disciple, and proclaims boldly: “The faiths of our fathers are tired now…only a global world view will suffice. The marriage of a believable faith with the husbandry of government is the union that must be contracted.” This has to occur under Obama, Neal concludes, for only then will there be “peace on earth and goodwill toward all.”[xxi]

Of course, it’s hard to resist being cynical. It’s a daily battle to keep hardening of the heart from setting in. The horrific deluge of wickedness gushing from the Obama administration is almost enough to make even the most seasoned patriot want to check out.

 

 

But, even in the face of what is clearly the ongoing, deliberate destruction of our American Republic by enemies within, checking out is not an option.Many of us have been warning, shouting from the rooftop for years now, that we have a criminal administration in Washington that is waging a not-so-bloodless coup against our federal government, military and all our major institutions.

That Will Zenith In 2016?

I learned recently that our good friend Sue Bradley has gone home to be with Jesus. She went into the Lord’s arms early in the morning on April 26, 2013.

In 2008 and again in 2012 with input from Steve Quayle and I, Sue began working on one of her last articles titled The Fourth Turning: The Protocols and The Gray Champion. A couple months back, she had emailed me from her hospital room and said she was about to expand this Fourth Turning work based on some “Zenith 2016” material I had just shared with her.

http://www.newswithviews.com/Horn/Images/Sinking-Statue.gif

Unfortunately, like with the passing of David Flynn, the world will probably never know what Sue was about to reveal. What we do know is her work was partially based on a book published in 1997, The Fourth Turning, which describes itself as “a book that turns history into prophecy.” It explains cycles of life and generational archetypes through the examination of Western historical paradigms over the past five centuries.

Is The Whole World Deceived?

If you were the devil and wanted to deceive the entire world, how would you approach such a challenge?

 

One brilliant strategy would be to convince people that you’re not really there—that you don’t even exist. And the best way to do that would be to get them to believe that the only source of information that reveals who you are, along with your motives and methods, is little more than a collection of fables that have nothing to do with their lives.

 

We have seen exactly that. Starting several centuries ago, and prompted by the theories of men such as Charles Darwin—who came up with a way to explain creation without the Creator—many people began directly challenging the authority and inspiration of the Bible. They began to ridicule, as mere myth and superstition, the existence of a spirit world, long accepted without question by those who believed the Bible.

In the world’s leading universities skeptics challenged the validity and accuracy of the Bible, and materialist reasoning under the guise of science—rejecting anything that cannot be detected by the physical senses—became the order of the day. Generations of leaders were taught to discard anything that could not be measured by scientific methods.

Is Obama the Antichrist ? (VIDEO purports to show that Christ was referring to our President) | AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL

March 26, 2013 97 comments

The anonymous narrator introduces his provocative four-minute video by asking if Jesus identified the name of the Antichrist, then says, “I will report the facts; you can decide” (reminiscent of Greta Van Susteren’s tagline on her show on Fox News). The narrator then notes that in Luke 10.18, Jesus says, “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan falling from the heavens.”

 

gophum

He then begins to link several hypotheses together. First, he claims that Luke 10.18 was written originally in Greek, but that Jesus spoke these words in Aramaic, “which is the most ancient form of Hebrew.” Second, he observes that the Old Testament was written in Hebrew and claims that the Aramaic that Jesus spoke would have been quite similar to the Hebrew that is spoken today and, presumably, similar to the Hebrew of the Old Testament.

 

Third, he then says that Jesus spoke these words in Hebrew, and retranslates the text as follows: “I saw Satan falling as lightning from the heights, or from the heavens.” Fourth, he discusses the Hebrew words for ‘lightning’ and ‘heights.’ He notes that the word for ‘lightning’ is baraq. Fifth, he claims that Isaiah is the source of the Christian understanding of Satan or ‘Lucifer’ (Isa 14.12 in the KJV).

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ (33 A.D.) is the most attested historical fact of the ancient world. In addition to the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, it is also widely attested by Greco-Roman and Jewish writers.

 

Closely related, history also confirms that the tomb of Jesus Christ on that first Easter morning was indeed empty. Every vested party knew where Jesus was buried after he died.

Of course, for too long successive governments have enacted and tolerated laws that are evil (such as the legalizing of abortion). What’s new in our day is that laws are being proposed and enacted that attempt to force Christians to give up core Christian doctrines (e.g. Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation) and ethics (e.g. biblical definition of marriage). When the Government does this, it is crossing the line from being God’s servant to being God itself. When that happens, what should we do?

 

 

Although Christians ought to be the most loyal citizens in any nation, we are facing the increasing challenge of a government that instead of acting as God’s servant for good, is becoming God’s opponent for evil?

The Law of Necessity…By Chuck Baldwin

March 1, 2013 Leave a comment

By Chuck Baldwin

 

Most of us are taught from childhood to respect and obey the law. On the whole, Americans are law-abiding people. This is only fitting for a nation that was built on the principles of law. Remember, at our core, this is supposed to be a “nation of laws, not men.” This is one reason that our Founding Fathers bequeathed us a republic and not a democracy.

Unfortunately, it has been over one hundred years since America’s teachers (both secular and sacred) have taught the principles of Natural Law. This has created a vast ignorance that has blinded people (especially Christian people it seems) from being able to properly understand, evaluate, and judge the law.
