Dobson Joins Forces with NAR

On May 1st  Dr. James Dobson joins forces with some of America’s leaders, pastors and members of the NAR in the name of prayer to turn the nation and it’s people from its –wicked ways–.

How can this be so, when the NAR has its own god?

They call it-

Mayday 2010 A Day to Cry to God for a Nation in Distress

I’d say so, as we see the unstoppable tentacles of C Peter Wagner’s life’s work of false teaching spread throughout all areas of our country.

Distress?

Absolutely.

Eschatology and Double Cross

This is a very good article! We will do well to keep this truth -taken from it- in the forefront of our minds when approaching all things political and social –

While Jesus was born into a politically-charged environment, He would not enter the political arena or reduce His message to something that could be identified with a political party. The New Testament restricts its comments on political activity to understanding the prophetic significance of such events and to pray for those in authority lest they be influenced by things more sinister.

For how many leaders have we voted for thinking more of them than we should, how many ministers, evangelists and prophets also, all proving to be something opposite from what they spoke? How many more times will we be taken in this same way?

Lots of good information here –  🙂

Eschatology and Double Cross

“The Theology of Disillusionment”

by James Jacob Prasch

In the aftermath of the Hasmonean Period in the century before the birth of Jesus, Israel quickly degenerated from the spiritual revival of the Maccabees and the national resurgence that followed to causing itself to being sucked in to a bad deal that had tremendous religious and political ramifications. Her own leaders entered into a treaty, trusting people who should never have been trusted because they looked to man instead of to God. Part of their motives were economic and strategic in terms of their national security. There were also elements of cultural leanings towards Rome as their had been towards Greece before the Maccabees. At the time of the Roman triumvirate, the Roman general Pompei arrived from Rome offering Israel the protection of the Roman Empire and economic advantage. The spiritual corruption of the Levitical priesthood, and what emerged as the Sanhedrin, predisposed the national leadership to enter into a concordant not ordained of God. At one point the High Priest, John Huricanus, had himself proclaimed king, violating the Scriptural prohibition that a king must be a descendant of David from the tribe of Judah while the High Priest had to be a descendant of Aaron from the tribe of Levi. The Levitical priesthood became a political monarchy in a union of what in modern terms we would call “church and state”, that God’s Word prohibited even in the Old Testament. As Rome’s sphere of power blossomed and new potential threats bloomed, Israel’s leaders, both religious and political, with popular backing of much of the public, pressed for the protection of Rome. Plainly, Israel had forgotten the lessons of Isaiah 30-31 during the reign of Hezekiah when God castigated those pressing Judah to seek protection against Assyria from Egypt.

No sooner had Israel agreed to become a protectorate when Pompei entered the holy city of Jerusalem and marched into the Temple, trespassing into the Holy of Holies. When anyone other than the High Priest on the Day of Atonement (”Yom Kippur“) entered the Holy of Holies, it is a type of the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27; Daniel 11:31; Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14; Luke 21:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:4). Israel feared another Antiochus Epiphanes from whom the Maccabees led their liberation from, defiling God’s Temple, so they looked to Rome. Instead Rome defiled it to their national shock and dismay. They had not only been betrayed by Rome, but by their religious and national leaders. Ultimately, however, in actual fact the majority of people betrayed themselves. The very thing they tried to prevent with their own devices they foolishly caused to happen.

Not only was the Temple defiled by Pompei, but instead of being a protectorate they found themselves a Roman colony governed by mad emperors from abroad and by Roman surrogates locally. This period saw the rise of two major types of the Antichrist: one was Caesar Augustus (formally the General Octavius of the Battle of Actium), and the other Herod the Great. While other emperors had been deified posthumously by the Roman senate, Caesar Augustus, who was emperor when Christ was born, was proclaimed to be a god in his lifetime. And with his census recorded in the nativity narrative of Luke’s Gospel, assigned numbers to people when Christ came the firs time in order to maintain economic control of most of the known world. Herod the Great was a Nabatean of Idumean ethnicity who was culturally Roman but who had embraced Judaism for political purposes much like all Texas politicians are “born again” at election time in the modern world, or as all unionist politicians are good Protestants at election time in Northern Ireland, or as all Irish or Italian politicians are good Catholics when they are running for office in Boston or Chicago.

Herod personifies the beast of Daniel that reappears in Revelation 12 trying to kill the baby coming out of the woman, and when the baby is raptured in the divine rescue kills the rest of her offspring. (Rev. 12:1-5, 17) Pompei, Caesar Augustus, and Herod were one Antichrist after another, much as their will be many Antichrists before the ultimate Antichrist and Jesus’ coming again. There will be another Pompei who will enter the Holy of Holies in the character of Antiochus IV. There will be another Caesar Augustus who will number people to maintain full financial and economic control. (Rev. 13) And as Revelation 12 tells us, there will be another Herod. These are complex typologies that will be explored in greater depth in our forthcoming book on the Antichrist. However, the message and pattern is clear.

By Jesus’ day there was a Temple to Caesar Augustus at Caesarea Philippi on the ruins of the ancient temple of Pan where Jesus gave His declaration of Himself being the Rock in Matthew 16. This was on the lower ridge of Mt. Hermon towering over Galilee below. In Jerusalem the Fortress Antonio overshadowed the Temple and Temple Mount itself with its eagles, symbols not only of Pagan Rome but Pagan Rome’s dominion over the house of God eclipsing the heart and soul of the people of God and their identity as a nation in a covenant relationship with the One True God. It was quite a mess, but in the final analysis it was largely a mess of their own making.

It is of little surprise that on February 1, 2010 Prime Minister Berlusconni of Italy arrived in Jerusalem. Breaking with the left-wing socialists who dominate the European Union, Mr. Berlusconni, despite being immersed in a series of financial and political scandals, remains an outspoken friend of the USA, a critic of Islamic culture and civilization (which he has compared to Communism as a deficient entity that must be defeated and that will fall in the squalor of its own depravity) and has consistently been a vocal supporter of Israel. Upon arrival in Jerusalem Mr. Berlusconni announced his plans to push for Israel membership into the European Union. Meanwhile the Vatican in Rome remains consistent in posturing itself to play a role in brokering a Middle East peace based on some kind of internationalization of Jerusalem in a climate where the pope seeks to regain the cloak he inherited from the Pagan emperors of Rome as Pontiff.

As we have explained multiple times in our recorded material, the emperors bore the religious title of “Pontificus Maximus” (the Great Bridge Builder between and among faiths) as head of Rome’s Pantheon; again in a marriage of church and state. A political figure wants to draw Israel into a revived Roman Empire while a religious one wants to be the bridge between Judaism, Christendom, and Islam. To those who understand Scripture and understand history in light of Scripture, the prophetic implications of these events are evident. At the very least they demonstrate a trend that is plainly of eschatological consequence. The prophet Daniel tells us that the Antichrist (akin to Pompei) will deceive Israel into making a treaty, break it, and betray them, leaving them not merely disillusioned, but devastated.

America and Israel have labored for decades to shift a normally pro-Arab Europe towards one more favorable to Israel at a time when grass root reactions to growing Islamic radicalism are mounting in Britain and Holland, and incipiently in Italy, Germany, and France. Meanwhile the Israeli left of the Labor Party coalition are dominated by socialists such as Simon Peres and other members of Socialist International who are natural bedfellows to the socialist eurocracy of Brussels and the so-called quartet mediary Tony Blair who is a member of the Bilderbergers and who converted to Roman Catholicism without gravitating into the fanciful speculations of conspiracy theorists.

It is obvious the stage is being set for something to happen that will not be simply politically transforming, but theologically stupendous. When and how this will happen we can only speculate, and again it is imperative that we avoid the wild conjectures of lunatic fringe conspiracy theorists, including those who combine conspiracy theories with their particular interpretations of End Times prophecy. What is also imperative, however, is that we recognize that these events are indeed lining up with End Times prophecy. As always the early trends are brought, but at some point they become specific and defined. Betrayal is once again on the horizon. As in the past, it arrives from Rome. As in the past, it is self-afflicted. As in the past, it fulfills the prophecies of Daniel. And as in the past, those people whose hearts and minds are truly the Lord’s, and these alone, will understand. (Daniel 11:33; Daniel 12:3)

To spiritually discern the politics of betrayal, one must understand the theology of betrayal. Whenever a nation or a people, no matter how strong its biblical heritage, stops looking to the living God and looks to man for salvation, they are doomed and they bring the doom on themselves. This is foremost true of God’s own covenant people Israel, but this principle co-equally applies to the Christian church; as the Apostle Paul wrote us, “If God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you“. (Romans 11:21)

Israel’s closest thing to a true friend has been the United States. And this is without doubt one reason God’s judgment has not already fallen on America. (Genesis 12:3) Yet the theology of politics and betrayal abound no less in the USA as they do in Israel and Europe.

Naive Christians heralded Ronald Reagan as a pro-life brother in Christ. In a colossal act of betrayal Reagan appointed pro-abortion judge Sanda Day O’Connor to the Supreme Court. It was O’Connor, a Reagan Republican, who wrote both the Supreme Court’s decision on outlawing the Texas anti-sodomy law which opened the door for states to move towards same-sex marriage with co-equal adoption rights for homosexuals and lesbians to raise up a child to be a homosexual or lesbian, and also authored the decision ordering the Ten Commandments out of the judicial building in Alabama. It was Dwight Eisenhower’s Republican Supreme Court of Earl Warren who ordered God out of the classroom. It was Richard Nixon’s Republican Supreme Court of Warren Burger who ordered God out of the maternity ward with Roe v. Wade. It was Ronald Reagan’s pro-abortion Supreme Court appointee who ordered God out of the courtroom. All the while, naive and undiscerning Christians have swallowed the lie that the Republican Party is more “Christian” than the Democrat Party, when in fact the record proves that it was Republicans who ordered God out of the classroom, the maternity ward, and the court demonstrating categorically and without mitigation that a Republican politician is everything that a Democratic politician is plus a liar on top if it. These are the simple and undeniable facts of history.

It was George W. Bush who first celebrated Ramadan at the White House. The Epistle of 1 John that which denies the Father and Son relationship is by scriptural definition “Antichrist”. Yet George W. Bush placed a copy of the Koran, which states that God has no Son, in the White House in order to honor Islam after September 11th as he continued the express visa program for Saudi Arabians who outlaw the New Testament from even being brought into their country. Somehow one cannot imagine Winston Churchill putting a copy of Mein Kampf in 10 Downing Street after Hilter’s Luftwaffe leveled Coventry and half of Liverpool and London, nor can one imagine even an FDR issuing visas to Japanese Kamikaze pilots after Pearl Harbor. Yet many Evangelical clergymen have lined up in election after election to endorse one Republican candidate after another.

As we speak, Senator Scott Brown, who sensationally won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusettes, announced that while he opposed federal funding for abortions, he believes in the right to abort a baby in circumstances where there is no clinical warrant as has the Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois.

While Jesus was born into a politically-charged environment, He would not enter the political arena or reduce His message to something that could be identified with a political party. The New Testament restricts its comments on political activity to understanding the prophetic significance of such events and to pray for those in authority lest they be influenced by things more sinister.

On the left, liberal clergy such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright, and some would say Rick Warren, endorse Democratic candidates the same as the late Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson endorsed Republicans. This replays the state of Israel in the early 1st Century in terms of corruption of the clergy who misled the people.

Jerry Falwell accepted millions of dollars in contributions from Korean cult leader Sun Yung Moon, who claimed to be the return of Christ in the flesh. Pat Robertson, who has given multiple false prophecies in God’s name, promoted the Toronto Experience and signed Evangelicals and Catholics together, also began a broadcasting ministry of contributions of Christians to preach the Gospel. He and his son then sold it to Rupert Murdoch and pocketed the money to the tune of nearly $1 billion. Jeremiah Wright, the mentor of Barrack Obama preached, “God damn America”, delivered racists pronouncements against white people from the pulpit, and invited Louis Farrakan, a racist Muslim who claims to ride in flying saucers, to preach at his church, which Barrack Obama supported for years with $500 a week tax deductible donations. It was interesting that Obama, on a visit to San Francisco, denounced hunters in Pennsylvania for clinging to their constitutional right to bear arms and to their faith when Obama’s own declared faith is a church where they preach “God damn” the same country of which he wished to be President.

The hypocrisy of politicians is eclipsed only by the hypocrisy of corrupt clergy just the same as we read in the Passion Narratives in the Gospels. Raising millions from corporations and foundations to help disenfranchised urban blacks with his Rainbow Coalition, Baptist minister Jesse Jackson paid a salubrious salary to the mother of a child he adulterously fathered out of wedlock to keep her quiet. In the 1940’s before the era of civil rights and Martin Luther King, when injustices against blacks were easily ten times worse than anything that exists today (particularly in the South), fewer than one in ten black children were born out of wedlock. Today seven out of ten are born out of wedlock. What chance do such poor children have with no father figure? And what chance does black America have when their leader is one of such absent fathers who, moreover, takes money contributed to help poor blacks in order to treat the mother of his love-child as a rich one to buy her silence?

We are again back to the debauchery of the religious system of Second Temple Period Judaism. Call it the “Sanhedrin” or the “World Council of Churches”, call them the “religious right” and the “religious left”, or call them “Pharisees” and “Saduccees”. Today, just as in biblical times, they are six of one and a half dozen of the other. Things have not changed much either in Israel or anywhere in the Judeo-Christian world. The legacy of hypocrisy endures, perpetuated by the lowest form of political slime and beatified by the lowest forms of theocratic scum. That is what it was like in the time of Jesus, and that is precisely what it is like today. How long Christ will tarry we cannot say, and how long His judgment will tarry we cannot say, but they will not tarry forever, of this we may be sure.

Disillusionment and betrayal are pan-historical. Barrack Obama debated Hillary Clinton and promised his supporters “Change” from what things had been under the Bushes and Clintons. Among his first acts after being elected to the presidency was to appoint a Clinton as Secretary of State and to reappoint Bush’s Secretary of Defense after running against the very foreign and defense policies advocated by both Clinton and Bush. The only thing Barrack Obama changed was his socks.

Obama was the lawyer for Acorn that pushed more than any other for sub-prime lending as a “civil right” for minorities. And his Chief of Staff, Rob Immanuel, earned $16 million in the Fanny-Mae/Freddie Mac mortgage fiasco that triggered the present economic crisis. Obama himself received more campaign contributions from Fanny and Freddie than any other member of the Senate except for Chris Dodd, who chaired the committee that exercise oversight over these institutions. It was his fellow Democrat, homosexual Barny Frank, who had a homosexual lover on the board of these institutions, who used his position as Banking Committee chairman to block the caveats being issued of the coming collapse. Sub-prime lending was the brainchild of Jimmy Carter and the darling of the Clintons who expanded it even more than it was of Bush. Yet Obama blames the previous administration for the mess he inherited, when in fact it was a mess he and the members of his administration such as Geithner and Immanuel largely created and profited from. It is little wonder that upon coming to office, he frantically wrote welfare checks for banks allowing them to increase their profits wildly, borrowing money at zero percent interest and lending it out at rates of 5%-8% paying handsome bonuses to kingpins of the banking establishment from where he recruited most of his key staff and cabinet members responsible for economic policy and financial regulation. His left-wing supporters were left stunned.

Obama repeatedly promised that all proposed legislation would be posted on the White House website five days before any vote by Congress. Instead he delivered a 1,300 page intricate and confusing tripling of the national debt to members of the House and Senate at 11 PM the night before the vote demanding it be passed to be sure that unemployment would remain under 8%. Unemployment is now above 10% and in real terms closer to 18%. It was Reagan who tripled the national deficit, then it was George W. Bush who tripled it again. Now Obama has tripled that, threatening the viability of the dollar the future economic sovereignty of the United States.

Many in the business community who supported him like Warren Buffet feel betrayed while one independent economist after another has come to the realization that Obama is an economic madman bent on pistol suicide. The solvency of the government, and a potential run on the dollar, plus a downgrade in the rating of federal adventures have become terrifying prospects under the presidency of someone who is plainly inept, inexperienced, unqualified, and utterly disposed to tell lie after lie. He promised his supporters that he would appoint no lobbyists to positions in his administration, yet he has appointed six including Attorney General Eric Holder.

Editorialists are openly saying that Obama has already become a lame duck whose popularity has declined faster than any other President in modern history. Baring unforeseen events, he is likely to be the next Jimmy Carter, a one-term loser fire from office by the electorate as an incompetent and also to be the next George W. Bush who will leave office without a legacy.

What is important about this for Christians is not the policies or the politics itself, but the manner in which Obama reached a Messianic stature, even being called a political “messiah” by the biased left-wing media. Many Evangelicals overlooked his position on partial-birth abortion and his advocacy of homosexuality and lesbianism to the point of holding gay and lesbian pride picnics on the White House lawn. From Christians in so-called “Emergent” and “Purpose Driven” churches who placed temporal concerns regarding the environment and opinions about social justice on the front-burner and moral issues such as abortion and homosexuality on the back, to Afro-American Pentecostals and Baptists, many Evangelicals were swept up in Obama fever, looking for a political messiah to save America and to save the planet.

Just as Bush and Reagan misled the religious right and left professing Evangelicals disillusioned, those Christians and others who looked to Obama for change are likewise left disillusioned, confused, and arriving at the daunting realization that they have been lied to and betrayed. Once again, however, it is easy to blame politicians who are deceivers by nature and who know how to manipulate with their eloquence and subtlety of the cleverly manufactured lies they fabricate. In the end however, the truth of the matter is the delusion they suffer is one they suffer because they deluded themselves.

Israel is self-deluded, always looking for any Messiah but the true one, from Bar Kochba to Sabbatai Tsvi to Jacob Frank to Menachem Schneerson. They will cheer any messiah except the genuine Messiah Yeshuah. So too the post-Christian, neo-Pagan Protestant world will celebrate the ascendancy of any political messiah to rescue them from their own devices now that they have rejected the True Messiah who can rescue them from their sins.

This ancient disillusionment that always arises from the advent of false messiahs following the rejection of the true one is but a cartoon before the movie. The worst is yet to come. For years we have warned if people cannot see through an obvious false prophet like Pat Robertson, Todd Bentley, or Benny Hinn, there is no way they will see through the False Prophet of Revelation 13.

We must realize that the frenzy generated by Adolph Hitler and Ayatollah Komeini was something that the peoples of Germany and Iran could not see until it was too late. This is the same spirit that propelled Israel to welcome Pompei, and it is the same spirit that propelled America to follow Obama. It always ends in disillusionment and betrayal. For the spirit in back of such phenomena is the spirit of Antichrist. If Germany, a cultural capital of continental Europe at the time could not rightly discern what Hitler was until it was too late and he brought them to destruction, or Italy, the nation of DaVinci, Michaelangelo, and Dante could not discern what Mussolini was until it was too late, and if America, the last remaining super power, could not discern what Obama is, how will they not follow the Beast to come? Satan always manifests himself as Lucifer, an angel of light. So does everyone controlled by the spirit of Antichrist, be it a pope, a Pompei, or an Obama. How easily Israel was deceived. How easily also is the Christian church deceived. Let us, by the grace of God, not be deceived.

With eyes towards heaven, let us remain fixated on the real Christ, that we will not be connived by a false one. Let us not look to Rick Warren’s counterfeit peace plan, but let us rather look to the Prince of Peace. Let us not be captivated by the spirit of Antichrist operating in both the religious and political realm, but let us be filled with the Holy Spirit of Jesus who prepares us for His coming.

Bentley Ordained – HA!

Updated with new link-

This reminds me of the days when a person only needed to send in some cash to an address on the inside of a matchstick cover to become “ordained“.  This proves a similar process is still in operation. Well…isn’t this America, where a person can become anything they want to become? Guess it’s true.

Will anything stop Bentley and Joyner now?

The Public Rebuke of a Modern Day Heretic (with applause)

I’m aware most everyone has seen the video involving the public rebuke of Todd Bentley. So, I’m not putting this up as a “look what I’ve found”, but rather to support and agree with the actions of these men and women taken against Todd.  (Yes, the wives and even children of the rebukers were present that night!) I do this in the continued effort of so many to warn others against the continued heresy of Todd Bentley, supported and endorsed by Rick Joyner, Mike Bickle and Bill Johnson.

It is sad and shocking at the same time to see Todd’s reaction. Did we truly expect he would repent? The actions of the people in his meeting scare me and remind me of those in the crowd who cried out for the release of the murderer Barabbas in return for the crucifixion of God in human form sent as our Savior who was without sin – Jesus Christ. Yes, it was the plan of God that Jesus suffer death, but at the same time, don’t the cries of the crowd reveal the true heart of mankind?  While Todd is not a murderer per se, lies kill truth. His false teaching and stories of bizarre supernatural experiences murders the true faith of Christianity.  He is a liar and a heretic. I have no problem speaking that out as truth. If you are a follower of this man, please pay attention to the warnings going out against him. We don’t do this for fun. It is far from it.

God help us.

Mark 15:6-15

6 Now at the feast he was accustomed to releasing one prisoner to them, whomever they requested. 7 And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion. 8 Then the multitude, crying aloud,[a] began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them. 9 But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12 Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
13 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!”
14 Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?”
But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”
15 So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified.

Another False Promise

I got this in my e-mail today.  Apparently NOW we will be blessed as a nation for praying for Haiti, or if not, then hell will certainly swallow us up! (or them)  Where does this man get these ideas??? Does Francis truly believe that there hadn’t been any prayers for the people of Haiti until now? What about the Christians living there?

When are these people going to get it right and speak the truth? Tribulation comes to all people, as individuals and to all nations, and has throughout all time since the fall. No one completely escapes devastation and no amount of prayer will ensure that we will. There is no promise for escape. There is no promise if we pray such and such will happen, and if we do not hell will break out. Hell has already broken out!

Here is the true promise, which is one to overcome the devastation of tribulation on a spiritual level, and the one I cling to…

John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Either Heaven or Hell
By Francis Frangipane

Since the massive 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti on January 12, news images of the apocalyptic destruction has stirred intense prayer in me for Haiti. I know I am not alone. I’m convinced that, worldwide, multitudes have been similarly compelled to pray for Haiti. Consider: its capitol city, Port-au-Prince, experienced the deaths of over 225,000 people. This staggering natural disaster is the worst to hit the Americas in recorded history.

We must keep the focus of Haiti in our prayers. If we fail to respond appropriately, certainly hell itself will swallow up this nation. Conversely, when a great need, such as exists currently in Haiti, is answered by great prayer, great things will eventually occur. Thus, I believe the potential for significant breakthroughs exits in Haiti’s future, even the hope of a spiritual awakening.

Yes, we have all heard of the voodoo and the curses upon Haiti – and I will offer some thoughts about this in my next mailing – but let me assure you there is a church in Haiti with whom the Lord is pleased. Indeed, even as we beheld the great devastation, and as we saw inconsolably distraught Haitians sitting with their dead and dying, there was something else to witness in this disaster. Against the backdrop of severe national trauma, media cameras turned toward another group of Haitians. These were people of faith, Haitian Christians. Their hands and faces uplifted, singing hymns of praise to God. In absolute defiance of their hellish circumstances, we saw men, women and children worshiping the Almighty.

I was so proud of my Haitian brothers and sisters in Christ; at the same time, I was also deeply humbled by the depth of their character. Those who were, perhaps, considered “last” in the eyes of man, God has esteemed and lifted as first. He has showcased their faith. Their remarkable trust in Him has become an unceasing witness of God’s grace to the world, both the saved and unsaved. I cannot remember seeing anything more powerful in recent years.

So let us honor and thank God for the Haitian Christians for their obedience to Christ. Let us also thank God for the small army of first responders who have fearlessly and compassionately committed themselves to Haiti’s redemption.

Finally, to all, in our world of rapidly changing priorities, let us not allow our hearts to soon forget the people of Haiti. This is an urgent hour. We must stand in the gap until victory rises from the ashes of this devastation. Please keep giving, but give in faith that God will bring a great awakening to these people. Keep praying, but pray with vision that godly leaders will arise, and that integrity and wisdom will preside over the rebuilding of Haiti. Yes, let us pray for God’s will to be done on earth, in Haiti, as it is in Heaven, for either Heaven or hell will manifest on Haiti’s streets.

Danger Looming – The Blog of Todd Bentley

Todd Bentley has done so much damage to the Word of God and all that is Christianity that I want to offer the same to him – rip and tear – here’s my take on his blog-

Out of fairness to blogging rules, here is the link, as much as I hate to post the demonic thing on my blog, but rules are rules. Ho hum.

http://www.freshfireusa.com/blog/

From Aug 17

As many of you know, I have been busy training hard in the gym and want to be in the best shape of my life in the next season of Revival.

The next season of revival. Here it comes. If at first you do not succeed, lie, lie again. Someone call Bob Jones and get a ruling on this to find out if the next season will be called the 4th Wave.

I have been very consistent and determined in losing weight and gaining healthy muscle mass.

The better to kick you with, my dear…

This reminds me of prisoners who have nothing else to do but pump iron all day long to better attack the guards when the rioting comes.

Instead of running to a fast food restaurant, I now run on a treadmill and instead of sneaking veggies to the dogs, I am now eating them! Lol!

…eating the dogs would not surprise me coming from a man who kicks those who are about to die and worshiping grandmothers in the face…

My trip to Kansas City was very refreshing. We attended World Revival Church for 3 days and it was truly encouraging and witnessed a real hunger, fire, and high praise and many testimonies of lives changed. I have felt a true spirit of Revival.

There’s that word again – revival.

We ended our time at IHOP by soaking to Misty Edwards live. There is a true mature and tangible presence of Holy Spirit.

What does that mean exactly? A true mature presence of the holy spirit. I didn’t realize the spirit of the living God had to mature, so he must mean the presence of the other spirit he calls God.

I think that Kansas City BBQ is the best in the world! Haha!

Hmmm..in case your personal trainer forgot to tell you before your big summer vacation, bbq is off the menu for those in training, Todd.

Am I picking on Todd and his blog? Yes. I’m trying to find a way to get through the “copyright” infringement without breaking the law. But honestly, I don’t see how a man who dissects and twists the Word of God the way Todd Bentley does can be protected by copyright. The whole concept does not sit well with me. I don’t see how he can be protected by anything under the law. But, as he twisted his way into America I guess he can use the laws of my country to gain his advantage

…to better manipulate you, my dear.

But, that’s why I am here. Let’s go back in his blog a little and I will show you somethin’.

From 5/23

The purpose of my blog is to share with you my personal thoughts, feelings, status, revelations, and updates on the ministry and restoration. Take the time to stay updated on the restoration process with Rick Joyner as the videos are featured here on the website.  Many of you have been faithful friends and loyal partners both in prayers and finances over the years. Please continue to stand with us.

Continue to stand – meaning keep sending your money…

At this time you may be asking, “What is Todd Bentley doing?” My main focus is rest and intimacy with Jesus. I have much time for prayer and meditation, enjoying reading many books, and studying the Word. Oh and don’t worry! I am having lots of fun too! There is a theme park five minutes from my house.

This is what your “contributions to his ministry” or as he called it “your stand” is doing for Todd.  You work, he plays. After all, the theme park is only 5 minutes away! Consider, your jobs, your family time, what it takes to get by day to day, all of your responsibilities. How much time do you have to do the things Todd does?

Um, if Todd had really spent all the time with God he claimed to during Lakeland, as he is again claiming here, he would not have been so inclined to fool around with someone he was not married to!  But, the divorce situation, bad as it may be, is only a smoke screen to get our attention off the fact this man, and those who endorse and promote him are steeped in false doctrine!

This is a key to false teachers, evangelists and prophets. They are all about telling us, the little people, how much time they spend with the Lord; how intimate they are with the Lord, and out of intimacy comes – yes – those coveted dreams and visions and trips to the throne room or the third heaven, that are oh, so important to our understanding as little people!! For God has sent them on this special mission to impart these revelations to us, the little people who have no focus, no passion, and no revelation! They say to “Do what I do and you will see what I see”, and…(watch yourself be seduced away to an intimate relationship with a demon!)

God has been speaking to me about mercy. We need it!

The last 10 months has been one of the most difficult trials for me. I have been overwhelmed at how much Jesus loves us. Even when we blow it. God’s reassuring love and grace meets me again and again. Honestly, through this season of restoration, I have feared that the judgment of God and embraced His discipline. I remember days where Ive questioned if God would qualify me again as a leader because of His holiness, His righteousness, and justice. To be frank, I came quite short of the character required of a leader.

Recently in Prayer God Spoke to me out of Isaiah 30:18 NKJ

“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore he will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are those who wait for Him.”

Sometimes when we expect judgment, God manifests His justice in goodness and mercy.  As it implies in the verse above, God’s justice and mercy are exalted in the Lord being gracious to you. The Bible goes on to promise in the same chapter, in the 20th verse, that though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, God will restore you to His favor again.

Isn’t that sweet?  A God of goodness and mercy…with no consequences for sin!  And here is a nice scripture to prove what he claims is right on. Finally achieved – a true god of our own understanding.

Please understand that Todd is not repentant. And that is key for us to receive God’s mercy and grace.  Just because Todd seems to have gotten away with so many things, does not mean he has escaped judgment – not at all.  Just because Rick Joyner and Bill Johnson have made Todd their pet joint project for “restoration” does not mean Todd has been called of God into ministry. He has not.

And notice how he included his readers  – “when we expect judgment” – so that you will identify with the fact that you are fallen just as he is, and who are you to pass judgment?? Don’t be fooled by this!  Let me take this one step further. This is a trick by Bill Johnson who was all about “Grace, Grace!!” when Todd was found out!  I guess you could say that Johnson literally played the devil’s advocate! These are one sided messages having nothing to do with the fullness of God’s word and the purpose of repentance!!! They do not want to admit they were wrong about Todd, so they have taken it to another angle to a twisted and out of concept scripture! And yes, I do mean out of concept! God is not fooled by this, neither should you be!

Todd Bentley is using the word of God for his own gain. He is not repentant! If he had been, he would not be in the situation he is now. The teaching on his web site, which I will get to, proves he has not changed one bit. He just wants us to think that everything is A-OK with the big guy upstairs so he can continue his demonic charade.

Remember, in charismania, the leaders all want us, the little people, to believe they have received special revelation, wisdom and understanding, and even a special anointing that we have not, that is necessary to take us to another level of teaching. Don’t listen. Go back to the word of God because the Holy Spirit who resides within you as a true born again believer will guide you into all truth!  These are the very words of Jesus!

I will continue my blogging when I attack his teachings on the Holy Spirit in which the rubber meets the road! In the meantime, you may want to read my article linked below in which I did my own research comparing the claims of the charismania holy spirit and the one taught about in the bible.

Until then, may the Lord give you eyes to see and ears to hear!  Ephesians 1:17-19

Americans Retaliate Against W.H. Snitcher-y Request

A few days ago I put up an article on the White House request that we turn in fellow Americans for “fishy” health care comments, which is a violation of our first amendment rights. Talk about political incorrectness! You would think the leader of the free world would know better, or maybe he is simply showing his true colors!

I was so steamed that I responded directly to the president, sending him a list of my own concerns and pointing out such a request is a no-no, which I later posted here.   Since then I have been busy e-mailing to the governor, senators and representatives AND the chairman of the GOP, forwarding them my letter to Obama, prefacing with an explanation.  Please, please take a few moments and do the same. Get your voice out there!

I have been hearing on the news that Americans all over are very upset over the health care issue, Obama’s lack of truthfulness, or as he put it “transparency”, and a complete lack of response from government officials who are required to give us straight-forward and truthful answers.  Some may have forgotten but the American government is answerable to it’s citizens.  Instead of providing us with answers we have been branded as trouble makers, some going as far to suggest the questioning is staged.  UNBELIEVABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE.  They do this to get us to shut up and to shut us out.  Don’t fall for it!

I am very happy to find that other Americans have the same view as I and have been making quite a noise!  This is what we need to continue to do. We put them in office by our vote, we pay their salaries by our tax money, that we work hard at our jobs to earn, therefore we need to hold them accountable maybe more now than ever.

Obama ‘Snitch” Program Put On Notice from Worldnet Daily here.

The Center for American Law and Justice or ACLJ, sent a letter to President Obama today, warning, “This citizen reporting program raises significant First Amendment concerns.

An attorney for Red State noted that the White House’s actions may be in violation of current U.S. law:

According to 5 U.S.C. § 552a, United States agencies including the Executive Office of the President shall, ‘maintain no record describing how any individual exercises rights guaranteed by the First Amendment unless expressly authorized by statute or by the individual about whom the record is maintained or unless pertinent to and within the scope of an authorized law enforcement activity.'”

Attorney Eric Erickson noted, “This will be the first significant time the White House has ignored the Privacy Act and may open President Obama up to litigation.” (emphasis mine)

>>So, does Obama not know the law or is he simply ignoring it?  Remember, Notre Dame recently awarded Obama with a bogus law degree.  However, ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking it, especially when you own the title of the highest and most powerful in the land.<<

As WND reported, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, demanded that Obama either halt the program or define how he will protect the privacy of those who send or are the subject of e-mails to the White House.

“I am not aware of any precedent for a president asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White house for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests,” the Texas senator wrote in a letter to Obama.

“By requesting that citizens send ‘fishy’ e-mails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported. … You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection system.”

Cornyn continued, “I urge you to cease this program immediately. At the very least, I request that you detail to Congress and the public the protocols that your White House is following to purge the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in ‘fishy’ speech.” (emphasis mine)

Be encouraged, some out there are still looking out for the American people!

Healthcare Reform – Val Lee

Wow.  I just popped into to Val Lee’s Weblog and found the following article:

Healthcare Reform Page by Page

Thanks Val for your great work getting this out!

I knew this so called health care reform was bad and I could barely read through all of her article.  I am shocked and sickened  that this is nothing more than a way to eliminate “unwanted” people and make the government lots of money gaining complete control over our lives and the lives of our families and children.  This is not what America is about!

This is what we have come to. This is what has been cooking on the back burner  while we have been hard at work at our jobs, taking care of our families, doing the right things, paying taxes and being good citizens and voting for those “like minded Americans” in office who should have our best interests at heart.  They do not have our best interests at heart at all and here is the truth!  I keep thinking  this cannot be true, but, it is true.  And something tells me this has gone too far to turn it back, stalled in the Senate or not.  This is not something out of Obama’s back pocket.  It has taken more than one man to do this much damage and to push this thing as far as it has gone.

We are talking more than health care here.  We are talking about government controlled people who no longer will have a say in anything they do.  It may start with the health issue, but it will not end there.  How can it when the government will decide who dies and when? It will not end until the government owns every one of us and makes all of our decisions – who we are, where we live and work, and where our money goes, and what we can and can’t believe in or worship. Everything we have come to enjoy in America in our freedom and liberty, everything that has been worked for in legislature, those who have given their lives for our freedom, on and on for generations –  it will be over very soon, all of that work will be nothing but history and probably will be erased from the history school books.

I hope I am wrong. But, I think we are in for it.
