The Real Terrorism 

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.”Psalms 127:3 

     When Herod the king of Judea in ancient Palestine first heard the prophecy about the Baby to be born in Bethlehem he slaughtered all the children under two years old in the land. (Matthew 2:16-18) The motive of this horrible act of terror was an attempt to prevent the Baby Messiah named Jesus from forever changing the world. 
     When the ancient adversary Satan first heard the prophecy about a new generation of young Christian world changers rising up in America he orchestrated the slaughter of 59 million babies aborted from mother’s wombs. The motive of this horrible act of terror was an attempt to prevent the third great awakening from coming to spiritually revive America and the world. This is the real terrorism. Stop terrorism. Choose life. Our future rewards are in the womb. 

The Days of Noah

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”
Matthew 24:37

At the 2014 Grammy Awards 34 couples were married during a mass wedding in a celebration of gay marriage. The Grammys stage at Los Angeles’ Staples Center was even momentarily transformed into a brightly lit church with a gospel choir. Currently seventeen US states and the capital Washington allow gay marriage. Opinion polls show that a majority of Americans support same-sex marriage.(1) The Bible says “in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:38-39) Interestingly, while all the same sex couples are celebrating their new marriages Hollywood will release the “Son of God” movie on February 28 of 2014 and then “Noah the Movie” will be released in theaters on March 28 of 2014. As in the days of Noah while people are participating in these unholy celebrations the Son of God will return when they least expect it. “So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!” (Luke 21:28)



When the Eagle Falls

“Praise the name of God forever and ever, for he has all wisdom and power. He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings.”
(Daniel 2:20, 21 NLT)

The news headlines recently stated “Flyover fail as bald eagle crashes into window inside Oklahoma school, falls to ground.” (1) The bald eagle, well known as a symbol for American freedom was brought to Oral Roberts Christian University to celebrate Golden Eagle Day. As the students were chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A!” the soaring eagle crashed into a window and fell to the ground. American freedoms are quickly crashing to the ground. Americans are enslaved by tax increases as a result of outrageous national debt. Through legalized abortion the freedom to live is being destroyed right in the mother’s womb. Privacy has been attacked with the digital monitoring of data. Freedom of speech is conditionally dependent upon avoiding the name of the only God worthy of our trust. When the eagle falls look up to the Lord who gave us flight.



Passing Luxury

The merchants of the world will weep and mourn for her (Babylon), for there is no one left to buy their goods. She bought great quantities of gold, silver, jewels, and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk, and scarlet cloth; things made of fragrant thyine wood, ivory goods, and objects made of expensive wood; and bronze, iron, and marble. She also bought cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle, sheep, horses, chariots, and bodies—that is, human slaves. “The fancy things you loved so much are gone,” they cry. “All your luxuries and splendor are gone forever, never to be yours again.”
(Revelation 18:11-14 NLT)

Many people keenly follow their stocks, commodities and bonds on a daily basis in the effort to accumulate wealth. The Bible says that the world has committed spiritual adultery by worshipping the material wealth instead of the Lord Almighty. The list of traded goods written in Revelation 18 appears similar to our modern stock exchange. The very same gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh that the wise men offered the infant King Jesus are listed as well. (Matthew 2:11) The wise men gave Jesus the gifts that their society worshipped and held in high regard.The wise men gave up freely the very things that the world stores and hoards in selfishness. They are indeed very wise men to not worship the material wealth of the world which will one day be taken away and lost. Instead they give it away to their King. What they gave up freely will be destroyed and taken from people in the end. The material things that people love and the wealth that they accumulate will be gone. We give freely now or lose it later. The choice is ours.


Gates to Glory

The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory. Its gates will never be closed at the end of day because there is no night there. Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty—but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
(Revelation 21:24, 25, 27 NLT)

Currently there is another conflict in Israel. War has broken out between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas. There seems to be no solution to peace. One day all nations will come up to the new Jerusalem including the enemies that attacked her. (Zechariah 14:16) Only this time they will not approach her with war on their minds but with songs of joyful praise on their lips as King Jesus will be proclaimed Lord Almighty. (Psalm 100:3) They will surrender and recognize that the Lord is God. He has won! The gates of the new Jerusalem will be open for all to enter peacefully with thanksgiving. The condition for entry into God’s city is purity without sin. Your name must be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. The condition for entry into God’s city is Jesus. Jesus is the open gate as only He can remove our sins. (John 7:10) Trust in King Jesus today and let Him open the gates to glory.


Sin Stinks!

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.
(Ephesians 5:1, 2 NLT)

The stench of refuse is not very appetizing. Unless you are a fly or a
worm the first reaction to such a foul odor is to leave the scene. The Bible says that “God, you take no pleasure in wickedness; you cannot tolerate the sins of the wicked. Therefore, the proud may not stand in your presence, for you hate all who do evil.” (Psalms 5:4-6) The stench of sin causes God to leave the scene. When God leaves, His hedge of protection is removed individually, regionally and nationally. Without protection what follows is destruction. The foul odor of sin is worse in some regions then others. Portland Oregon for example has recently been ranked as the nation’s most sexually promiscuous city by a national dating site. So when a disaster such as an earthquake or tsunami strikes don’t blame God, it’s sin that stinks. We can become a pleasing aroma to God by repenting for our sins and trusting in Christ to deodorize us from the stench of all unrighteousness with His precious blood.


Shake Up To Wake Up

“Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
(Ephesians 5:14 NLT)

Sleeping adolescents can be difficult to wake. After calling their name without any response it may be necessary to pinch them, shake them or even drag them out of bed. Parents are not trying to harm their children they just want to get their eyes open and ready for a new day. Historically the United States of America has been known as “one nation under God” but now this nation has become “one nation without need of God.” The slip into the spiritual slumber of complacent morality has consequences. Over the next few years the United States will experience disasters of progressive magnitude and near economic collapse. This national shaking will result in a spiritual awakening. God our Father has promised “if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14) When we open our spiritual eyes and repent we see the light of Christ for the start of our new day. The shake up wakes us up.


Storm Warning

He tore the sky open and came down
with a dark cloud under his feet.
He flew swiftly on his winged creature;
he traveled on the wings of the wind.
He covered himself with darkness;
thick clouds, full of water, surrounded him. Hailstones and flashes of fire
came from the lightning before him
and broke through the dark clouds.
Then the LORD thundered from the sky;
and the voice of the Most High was heard.
(Psalm 18: 9-13 GNT)

David the servant of the Lord, spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of King Saul who was the previous leader.
Hurricane Sandy is scheduled to strike land one week prior to the 2012 United States presidential election day. The National Hurricane Center stated today that “INTERESTS THROUGHOUT THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES AND NEW ENGLAND SHOULD MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF SANDY.” The Mid-Atlantic States to New England are the stronghold of the Democratic Party. The meaning of the name “Sandy” from the Greek origin is “Defender of Mankind” The Lord is our defender and He is not a God of destruction. He loves us so much that He gives us subtle warnings to prevent us from destroying ourselves. When you sign your name to the voting ballot on November 6, 2012 consider very carefully what you are agreeing to. “How I love you, LORD! You are my defender.” (Psalm 18:1)



“Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
(Acts 2:38 NLT)
On August 29 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall in New Orleans LA and became the deadliest, most destructive and costliest natural disaster in the history of the United States. At least 1,836 people died in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods.
The city of New Orleans flooded as the levee system catastrophically failed leaving 80% of the city submerged and the floodwaters lingered for weeks.[1]
Exactly 7 years later to the day Hurricane Isaac is predicted to strike New Orleans. God is a Creator and not a destroyer but He sometimes permits life’s storms as warning messages. It is better to voluntarily submerge ourselves being baptized in God’s blessings then to be involuntarily submerged and baptized in the floods of destruction.
