Dear Readers,

It is a daily blessing to see how God is at work throughout the world! He always has been and will be!

Our pastor’s youngest son, who has Down syndrome, is quite the witness at his school. Recently, he was singing a powerful hymn, which he does frequently. His teacher wanted to know the name of the hymn. This led to the words of the hymn being copied for her. This resulted in the hymn being copied for all instructors in his school. All were thrilled to receive the Gospel words.

He is a young child, mentally challenged; yet, he is a continual witness of the LORD Jesus Christ. Praise God!

Believers need to keep God’s chosen nation of Israel in their petitions and hearts.

Increasingly, more countries are ranting against her; joining the ranks of her destructors. It is all about driving the Jews into the ocean. The Bible tells us that God blesses those nations who support her.

“And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curse thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)

“For thus says the LORD of hosts; After the glory has he sent me to the nations which plundered you: for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye.” (Zechariah 2:8)

And Psalm 22

Though Israel is far from perfect and has rejected the LORD Jesus Christ, nations are still commanded to not curse or harm her. Someday all the Jews will serve Jesus Christ who will rule the universe from Jerusalem.

US Demands Apology from Israeli Defense Minister

Tzippe Barrow — Wed, 2014-01-15 07:17

(Condensed)

JERUSALEM, Israel — While the Obama administration demanded and got an apology for Israeli Defense Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon’s criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry, a former Israeli diplomat told CBN News Ya’alon’s comments should serve as a wakeup call for the U.S.

Israel’s Defense Ministry issued the following apology:

“The defense minister had no intention to cause any offense to the secretary and he apologizes if the secretary was offended by words attributed to the minister,” the statement read.

Ettinger said Kerry’s track record on Middle East issues speaks for itself.

“This is the same Kerry who praised leaders like [Syrian President] Bashar Assad for being constructive and peaceful leaders — who is still singing the praise of an Arab Spring while there is an Arab tsunami in the region,” he said.

“This is the same Kerry who defines the opposition of Assad, namely the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda, as moderate opposition,” he continued. “And this is the same Kerry who is preoccupied with the Palestinian issue while American interests are threatened with very serious threats from Islamic terrorism, which is disconnected and unrelated completely to the Palestinian issue.”

Ya’alon made headlines Tuesday over remarks he reportedly made in private conversations both abroad and at home, according to the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot.

“The only thing that can ‘save us’ is for John Kerry to win a Nobel [Peace] Prize and leave us in peace,” Yediot Ahronot quoted Ya’alon as saying.

“Secretary of State John Kerry, who came here very determined and operates based on an unfathomable obsession and messianic feeling, cannot teach me anything about the Palestinians…I live and breathe the conflict with the Palestinians. I know what they think, what they want and what they really mean,” said Ya’alon, himself a former Israel Defense Forces chief of staff.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas restated the P.A.’s demands in the midst of Kerry’s efforts to push the process forward. They will never recognize Israel as the Jewish nation-state; there will be no deal without east Jerusalem as their capital; and they will never give up the “right of return” for so-called Palestinian refugees — all non-starters for Israel.

“The American security plan presented to us is not worth the paper it’s written on,” he said. “It contains no peace and no security. Only our continued presence in Judea and Samaria [the West Bank] and the Jordan River will guarantee that Ben Gurion Airport and [the northern coastal city] Netanya do not become targets for missiles from every direction.”

“You presented us with a plan based on smart technologies, satellites, sensors, war rooms with television screens, without our forces being present on the ground,” Ya’alon continued.

“And I ask you, how will your technology help us when a Salafist terror cell or one from Islamic Jihad tries to carry out a terror attack against Israeli targets?” he asked. “Who will take care of them? What satellites will take care of the rocket industry developing in Shechem (Nablus), and the rockets that will be launched at Tel Aviv and the central region?”

“There are no negotiations with the Palestinians. The Americans are holding negotiations with us and in parallel with the Palestinians,” he explained. “So far, we are the only side to have given anything — the release of murderers — and the Palestinians have given nothing.”

On releasing more convicted terrorists, Ya’alon said “enough is enough.”

“We have given enough and received nothing,” he said. “Let us say to our American friends, ‘enough is enough.'”

Canada stands with Israel, Praise God!

Speech by Canada’s Prime Minister Harper.

Excerpt from the Times of Israel News:

After generations of persecution, the Jewish people deserve their own homeland, and deserve to live safely and peacefully in that homeland,” Canadian Prime Minister Harper said early in his address. “Canada supports Israel because it is right to do so.”

“Likewise, when they are threatened anywhere, they are threatened everywhere,” Harper continued. And “what today threatens the societies that embrace such values and the progress they nurture? Those who scorn modernity, who loathe the liberty of others, and who hold the differences of peoples and cultures in contempt. Those who often begin by hating the Jews, but, history shows us, end up hating anyone who is not them. Those forces which have threatened the State of Israel every single day of its existence, and which, today, as 9-11 graphically showed us, threaten us all… And so, either we stand up for our values and our interests, here, in Israel, stand up for the existence of a free, democratic and distinctively Jewish state, or the retreat of our values and our interests in the world will begin.”

“Through fire and water,” Harper concluded, “Canada will stand with you (Israel).”

Knesset members and the packed crowd in the Knesset galleries — including the large Canadian delegation accompanying Prime Minister Harper in Israel — rose to their feet as the Canadian prime minister concluded, and gave him prolonged applause.

Article on New York’s Common Core’s unspeakable, sexual link that had nasty, sexual quizzes for children.

http://www.libertynews.com/2014/01/unbelievable-ny-common-core-education-portal-links-to-pornographic-sex-survey-site/

Due to outcry, the pornographic survey has been removed.

One quiz associated being a virgin with being a ‘loser.’

It certainly implied that children obtaining sex from anything and anyone, including relatives, is appropriate.

Praise God for those who expose and speak out.

Obamaschool is determined to destroy our nation’s young.

Our country and its leaders need the LORD. We need to beseech God to raise up Christian leaders of Biblical morals to abstain the decay that is rampantly warping minds.

One of the reasons Almighty God brought Babylonian judgement upon Israel was due to the case, she “no longer knew how to blush.” (Jeremiah chapter 6)

I have a story to tell—

The other day Mom, my mother-in-law, relayed a surprising story to my husband and me on the phone.

Mom’s parents lived in Saint Mary’s, Idaho, in a very rural area. When it was time for the birth of one of her sisters, Louise, the local doc, Doctor Robins, was notified. It was during winter and it was bitter cold and icy. The little bridge to their home was so drenched in ice, that the doc had to get down on all fours to make it across safely. Once there, he determined Louise would not arrive as an Idaho citizen till the next day. Due to the treacherous path, he chose to spend the night. The following day, beautiful, healthy Louise arrived to the pleasure of her parents. She was their firstborn delight who matured into a delightful, Christian lady.

For 28 years, Doctor Robins delivered most of the babies in Benewah County. Everyone thought of him as an “extraordinary man.” He had a compassionate bedside manner and was known to all as the “beloved” family doctor.

Today, this delivery man is known as Idaho’s twenty-second governor. He made his mark within Idaho History. Unfortunately, little remains regarding his achievements.

Doctor Robins was born in Defiance, Iowa in 1884. He received his B. A. from a Baptist institution in Missouri. Over 20 years later, he decided to become a physician; enrolling in a Chicago medical school. He worked his way to his degree, employed at whatever was available, mostly selling apparel.

He arrived in Idaho from Chicago to practice medicine via the famous, Old Milwaukee Railroad. (This General Electric train line was an electric rail that ran standard size passenger trains from the East and stopped in itsee bitsee, Avery, Idaho, where people transferred to a steam train line. The electric line faithfully conquered five mountain ranges. It was the cleanest means of travel in that era. No dirty coal residue clung to the passengers.

Avery houses a museum in honor of the former Milwaukee trains.)

Doc’s wife, Marguerite, passed on in 1938, and a year later, he married a nurse by the name of Patricia.

It was at age 61 that Doc Robins decided to campaign for governor, “criss crossing Idaho.”

He had many strong stands! He uprightly requested and received written pledges that none of his sponsors would request anything from him. “He applied the purest approach to political contributions.” He never inquired into how much anyone had aided.

He did not believe government should control business, explaining this would lead to the bankruptcy of our nation and its people.

He established the State Board of Correction.

He removed the highway department from the patronage system, and created 200 schools districts instead of the previous 1,100. Moreover, he improved Idaho schools. This, in the day when the Bible was still a major element of education and parents orchestrated curriculum.

My father-in-law contributed to the information by adding, he knew Robins to be a very fine governor.

Love in Jesus Christ who establishes government leaders—Romans chapter 13 in the Bible,

Israel, Muslims and President Obama in the News

Dear Readers,

The holy land of Israel is a point of news this day. It is very grievous that our president and his administration believe God’s people, the Jews, should not be in control of the land God has allotted to them. I believe the Jewry should be allowed to protect their borders from Muslims who believe in “death to Israel.” The spiritual battle rages in many arenas as satan wants the Jews destroyed and always has desired their demise.

Whenever Muslims build a mosque it means victory over a nation or area of occupation. Someday the mosque on the Jerusalem temple mount will be destroyed and the temple rebuilt.

“On May 14, 1948 the ‘Palestinian Jews’ finally declared their own State of Israel and became ‘Israelis.’ On the next day, seven neighboring Arab armies… Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen… Invaded Israel. Most of the Arabs living within the boundaries of the newly declared ‘ISRAEL’ were encouraged to leave by the invading Arab armies to facilitate the slaughter of the Jews and were promised to be given all Jewish property after the victorious Arab armies won the war. The truth is that 70% of the Arab Palestinians who left in 1948 – perhaps 300,000 to 400,000 of them – never saw an Israeli soldier! They did not flee because they feared Jewish thugs, but because of a rational and reasonable calculus: the Jews will be exterminated; we will get out of the way while that messy and dangerous business goes forward, and we will return afterwards to reclaim our homes, and to inherit those nice Jewish properties as well. They guessed wrong; and the Arab Palestinians are still tortured by the residual shame of their flight. Their shame is so great because in their eyes running from Jews was like running from women. So much for the blatant lie about Jews throwing out all the [Palestinian] Arabs!”

http://in.reuters.com/article/idINIndia-51435120100912 Reuter News September 12th:
Netanyahu ignored in public remarks on Sunday a nudge from U.S. President Barack Obama to extend a partial settlement freeze on land Palestinians want as part of their future state.
http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSLDE68000920100902 Reuters News September 2nd:
President Barack Obama, aiming to resolve one of the world’s most intractable disputes, has set a goal of striking a deal within 12 months to create an independent Palestinian state that exists peacefully, side-by-side with the Jewish state.
The hardline Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, rejected the peace talks and said it would keep attacking Israelis. Four Israelis were killed and two injured in two separate attacks in the occupied West Bank this week.
A spokesman for Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, said some 13 militant groups had joined forces to launch “more effective attacks” against Israel. Asked if this included suicide bombings, he said: “All options are open.
Jewish settler groups, meanwhile, vowed to push ahead with new construction in occupied areas of the West Bank, underscoring a central sticking point that threatens to derail the negotiations just weeks after they begin.

Conservative News Source:

Although President Obama tried to stop the desecration of Korans, Obama showed no such concern for the American flag. In June 2006, Senator Obama voted against the Hatch Amendment, a proposed constitutional amendment that read in full: “The Congress shall have power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States.” It failed by one vote.

In an official statement explaining his vote, the future president, explained, “a disservice to our country” and agreed that banning flag desecration “would destroy part of freedom itself.”

_______

I believe the planned Koran burning was to bring publicity to Pastor Jones. It was a silly staged stunt that fizzled out. But why does our president and liberals defend this deadly religion? Would our president and Hillary be upset if a Muslim declared he were going to burn a Bible at the 9/11 site? Of course, not!

The message is being conveyed, we must fear Muslims and never dishonor their beliefs. People will be killed if we do not. What happened to fearless America, a country that once boldly spoke against the terrorists of the world?

________

News: President Obama concluded his press conference today with a statement on the importance of protecting the rights of American Muslims. “We don’t differentiate between them and us,” he said. “It’s just us. And that is a principle that I think is going to be very important for us to sustain.”

…”We’ve got millions of Muslim Americans, our fellow citizens in this country,” Obama said. “They’re going to school with our kids. They’re our neighbors. They’re our friends. They’re our coworkers. And when we start acting as if their religion is somehow offensive, what are we saying to them?”

________

Remember Hitler murdered people to keep his personal records secret. Our president also will not allow anyone to view his personal records.

________

Our president and his wife are satan supporters and they are leading their children down the same path:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OYH2TtSM8U&feature=related They support satan’s every agenda from murdering babies to promoting homosexual rights. It is no wonder they chose Harry Potter for their reading material.

Remember our president mocks the Bible:

How in the world can such a man call himself a Christian? True Christians love the Word of God from cover to cover!

We need to be continually praying for our president to turn to the Jesus Christ of the Bible. We must pray for all in office to come to the knowledge of the truth of God. God desires all be saved and come to a knowledge of Him. Christians were all dead in trespasses and sins at one time, before they were washed clean in the blood of Christ.

Israel—End Times

http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/Thru_the_Bible_Sunday_Sermon/

I would like to recommend the sermon at the link above. It is aptly powerful for our times. It deals with end time prophecies and what has occurred in Israel and what will. It covers the attitude of Jews who now believe Israel is the messiah and science the answer to everything. The ecumenical movement is prominent everywhere, including Israel.

One thing I gleaned from this message, regarded the UN’s declaration that was adopted in 1949. Due to the Catholics and Russia, Jerusalem was formed into an international city. This is why she has no power to rebuild the temple or do as she pleases. This is not surprising regarding the Catholics—they do not believe in Revelation. The hierarchy tells Catholics not to read Revelation because it occurred during the time of the Romans. This being what Calvinists adhere to also. Calvin was a follower of Augustine who fathered the Catholic Church and he worshipped the queen of heaven (the Catholic Mary). Catholics and Calvinists do not believe Jews have right of ownership to the Holy Land. They are out of the picture.

Armageddon occurs right before Christ’s thousand-year rule and Gog and Magog occurs after Christ’s thousand-year rule. This is made totally evident from Revelation chapter 16 and 19:11-20, Zechariah chapter 12, etc. Many people today will state, what is occurring in the Middle East is the precursor of Armageddon. Many such heretical utterances have been pronounced in recent decades. Such statements are lies. The Tribulation has not begun nor come to an end.  When it unfolds, Christ will come with all his holy angels and destroy all His enemies as described in Revelation 19, Jude 14-16, etc.  Christ will rule someday in all holy, innocent righteousness, maintaining an authoritative rod of iron in Jerusalem. He will rule a thousand years following Armageddon.  Then the final battle against evil will occur—when satan is released from hell and gathers the nations against Christ and the nation Israel;  Revelation 20:7-9 and Ezekiel 38.  The judgment then takes place. 

There have been many peace treaties signed in the Middle East with Israel and we know from Daniel 11:24 that the religious antichrist will make an alliance. We know from Daniel 7:23 that there will be four main antichrists. Revelation 13 reveals two. The main antichrist who is the religious one is viewed in Daniel 11 and various places in Scripture. We have the religious antichrist and the political antichrists. Three of the four seem to be political from Daniel 7 and Revelation 13.

In Daniel 11, we note apocalyptic events transpire in the Middle East, the home of the antichrist. In Revelation, the Euphrates River is stated twice to give us the local of end times. The main antichrist, who is spoken of in Daniel 11, starts out with a small force of people in the Middle East. He is not from America as America has a great force of people. This is not President Obama as many seen to believe. It is amazing that people refer to him as the messiah. America is not stated in the Bible. There is no apocalyptic reference to her.

Everything in Daniel 11 deals with the Middle East. We know America is not the stage of these events from this chapter and others. We recognize the true Messiah must be Jewish—of the line of David. Daniel 11:28, 36, 38 indicates the antichrist is Jewish or holds some Jewish blood. He appears to be from Israel and another nearby land. He returns to Israel (his land) with many riches and then returns to his land. This chapter is sister to 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. He seems to connect himself with Israel and what would be a Muslim nation in today’s scheme. It will most likely be Iraq. And Iraq seems to be the location of mystery Babylon. Historical Babylon was in Iraq, running along the Euphrates River. The Euphrates River has changed its course and ancient Babylon’s ruins no longer rest beside this river. New Babylon will probably rest on the Euphrates, not far from the ancient city. It is the new Babylon, being it will have many resemblances. The antichrist may begin with ruling power in Iraq and Israel. He seems to be of two home areas. God knows what will be the location of his second home in the Middle East.

Other key strategic Middle East areas are Edom, Moab, Ammon, Libya and Ethiopia as viewed in Daniel 11. The religious antichrist makes a home for himself between the sea and the Holy Land at the close of the chapter. This chapter also mentions the king of the South. Saudi Arabia is south.

Hitler was ¼ Jewish or so it appears. He destroyed all his records to keep it a secret. He bombed his hometown area that held the documents and killed a man who was investigating his possible Jewish bloodline. I believe many Christians believed he was the antichrist, as he sought to rule the world in holocaustic military power just as the future antichrists. People looked to Hitler as god and sang his praises. He murdered thousands of Jews and Christians. Many antichrists will arise in the end days and Obama is certainly a type. But only a type, he holds no Jewish blood and his home is not Israel.

Things seem to be looming in the direction of concluding times and that is all I can say. I do not have any idea when the rapture will occur. I do not want God’s judgment placed upon me for assuming anything. We do know the chronological order of events from Scripture:

* The Rapture

* The Tribulation Period

* Armageddon

* The Millennium (Christ’s thousand-year rule on the earth)

*  Gog and Magog

*  The Judgment

When we were in the Gulf War, false prophets stated this was the beginning of Armageddon. Many false prophecies arose. In the OT, if one prophesied falsely once, they were to be stoned. It positively revealed the words they spoke came from Satan. What is sad is when one lies or falsely prophesies today, they are still allowed in the church, even though they have proven themselves to be of Satan. Anyone who states anything in regards to end times or anything of Biblical truth, must prove it without a shadow of doubt through Scripture. God’s Word must verify everything, verse by verse, chapter by chapter.

(1 John 5:10-13—the Bible)

Words of a pastor:

Considering the unbiblical and unconstitutional legislation at hand, it’s looking more and more like faithful Christians could soon be viewed as enemies of the state for no other reason than having believed, proclaimed and obeyed the Word of God. Not only is the church being attacked from without, it is also being undermined from within by charlatans who would transform it into something more spiritually pliable, socially useful and dialectically accommodating.

I believe Christians will again and again be called upon to choose whom we will serve in the coming days in ways that will bring more persecution and suffering than we are accustomed to, requiring a spiritual farsightedness and desire for the eternal things of God over the temporal rewards of this world.
