By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

June 9, 2006

I want to begin this column with one of my all-time favorite quotes. It comes from the great German reformer Martin Luther. He said, "If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point."

Luther's trenchant statement reminds us that today's Christians, especially our Christian leaders, are not confessing Christ. Oh, they may host large crowds in their worship services; they may deposit multiplied millions of dollars in their financial accounts; they may receive thunderous applause from politicians, but they are not confessing Christ! Why? Because they are totally absent from the field of battle where the devil is attacking! I mean totally absent!

For the record, the real battlefield today is not abortion. It is not homosexual marriage. It is not Social Security. It is not al Qaeda. It is not taxes. It is not inflation. It is not electing conservatives. It is not posting the Ten Commandments. That is not to say that those issues are not important and not deserving of our best efforts and attention. We have fought and continue to fight for those issues. But those issues do not represent the major battlefield today.

The battlefield where the devil has amassed his greatest forces and is thrusting his deadliest armies is the surrender of our national sovereignty and independence, and the creation of global government! Yes, Martha, the devil has targeted the United States for destruction, and he is using our own political leaders to do his diabolical work! Furthermore, unless God awakens His people, especially His preachers, America's fall will be swift, and few will even notice that it happened-until it's too late.

Obviously, the surrender of our independence has been ongoing for some time. However, under Bill Clinton and especially under G.W. Bush, the pace has quickened exponentially! Doubtless, the biggest reason President Bush has more aggressively hastened the pace of America's merger into supranational government is because he enjoys widespread support among evangelical Christians. Absent opposition from Christian leaders, G.W. Bush has virtually had a free hand. And please know this: before Bush was a Republican, before he was a "conservative," before he was a Christian, he was and is a globalist, as was his father and grandfather before him!

Of course, the other reason Bush has been free to behave lawlessly is due to the fact that the GOP controls both houses of Congress. Absent political opposition from the legislature (or the national media, for that matter), Bush has virtually no impediment to his actions. For all intents and purposes, President Bush has been able to conduct business as a de facto dictator. There are no checks and balances at work today.

Because our national Christian leaders are content to revel in the lap of political cronyism with President Bush, they have abandoned their positions as watchmen on the wall. Instead of being watchmen and heralds of truth, they have become political lackeys and toadies for Bush. As a result, the message of truth must be carried by others. At the moment, I don't know anyone who is more faithfully engaged in the real battle for America than Jerome Corsi.

Many of you know Corsi as the man who co-authored the Number 1 New York Times best-seller, "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry." Corsi recently wrote two columns that every American should read. One was carried by Human Events Online and the other one was carried by World Net Daily. I urge my readers to read both of these columns.

Jerome Corsi holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University in political science. He is not some fringe-radical. (Not that Harvard hasn't produced its own radicals!) Furthermore, it doesn't appear that he embraces any particular religious persuasion. If he does, I haven't heard about it. However, Corsi is doing what our religious leaders should be doing, but aren't: he is sounding the trumpet of truth for the real battlefield.

In a nutshell, Corsi warns us that President Bush is secretly working to merge the United States into a trilateral government with Canada and Mexico. Corsi maintains that back in March of 2005, Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and (then) Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin entered into an agreement which binds the three countries into a regional or hemispheric government. Corsi insists that this is one of the central reasons why Bush is so adamant about granting amnesty to Mexico's illegal aliens. Bush is simply following through with his commitment to Fox and Martin. (This is also why Bush will doubtless issue a "guest worker" Executive Order or Signing Statement should the House of Representatives refuse to accept the Senate's amnesty bill. Bush has repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to circumvent Congress by issuing executive directives to get his way. [Read]

Corsi also notes that this new hemispheric country already has a name. It is called the North American Union, and it is being created without any input (or even knowledge) from our legislative or judicial branches of government. The official name of the agreement made between the three leaders is the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America" (SPP). Obviously, the new North American Union is modeled after the already established European Union (EU).

The SPP (North American Union) already has headship. Three top cabinet level officers from each country have been selected. Corsi writes, "Representing the United States are Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez, Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Representing Mexico are Secretario de Economia Fernando Canales, Secretario de Gobernacion Carlos Abascal, and Secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Luis Ernesto Derbez. Representing Canada are Minister of Industry David L. Emerson, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Safety, Anne McLellan, and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pierre Stewart Pettigrew."

Corsi further writes, "According to the signed 'Memorandum of Understanding,' the only borders or tariffs which would remain would be those around the continent, not those between the countries within." Then quoting from the Memorandum he writes, "Its (the North American Community's) boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of PEOPLE [emphasis mine], products, and capital will be legal [that's why Bush wants to legalize illegal aliens in the U.S.], orderly and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America." (page 3)

Folks, please notice, this Memorandum does not call for a free, secure, just, and prosperous United States, but a free, secure, just, and prosperous NORTH AMERICA! President Bush has already committed the United States to a regional or hemispheric government! When completed, this regional government will control everything relative to the "security" and "prosperity" of this new North American Union. That includes everything relating to travel, law enforcement, trade, education, military matters, etc. In other words, EVERYTHING!

Please remember, too, that all of this is being done without any input from the American people or their elected representatives at the state or federal level. I would even dare say that the vast majority of congressmen and senators are completely oblivious to the fact that this is even happening. With the attention of the American people (and Congress) focused on the Middle East, Bush and his cabal of elitists are moving forward with plans to surrender our national independence and merge our country into a regional government. Friends, this is the real war; this is the real battlefield!

When America loses its sovereignty and independence, we will lose all of our fundamental liberties. The Constitution will be meaningless and irrelevant. The Bill of Rights will be moot. The principles of religious liberty, the right to life, and the Christian foundation of our country will be passé. And, as I said at the outset of this column, our national leaders, especially our Christian leaders, are totally absent from this battlefield! And they should know better!

Any preacher worth his salt knows that world government (including regional or hemispheric government) is a history-long ambition of the Evil One. Ever since Babel, Satan has inspired power-hungry men to defy God's standard of independent nationalism set forth in His Word and seek global domination. True men of God also know that only Christ's kingdom can be justly universal and that any attempt to circumvent or steal His kingdom is devilish by definition! So, why do they sit back and say nothing as George W. Bush does the devil's bidding?

The surrender of our national sovereignty and independence is where the battle currently rages, it is where the devil is at this moment attacking. Where is the Religious Right? To use Luther's assessment, they are not confessing Christ, however boldly they may be professing Christ. They have flinched and fled in the face of battle. Their actions are truly disgraceful!

There is so much rampant relativism in America today that only the few who care about the future of this nation and the heritage that made it a once great nation understand that the liberty of which we are so zealous is as fictitious as Santa Claus, perhaps more so.

As a nation filled with IRS-beholden churches whose preachers cannot involve themselves in the political morality of the day, or the ethics dictated by the Christian faith, or even the public displays of the symbols of our faith lest some be offended and take matters to court, we are filled with churchians who agree with whatever our government says about God, even to whether He exists. We should be a nation of fiery pulpits rather than teachers who tickle ears for the sake of building membership numbers and bowing to the dictates of the tolerance and diversity peddlers whose influence is manifest everywhere. Sadly, we are not a nation of fiery pulpits but of merchandisers of a feel-good religion with bigger buildings and smaller messages of little to no import, and barely a word of true Gospel.

We're not ashamed to tell the pollsters (however they do polls) that we're Christian, but we're very afraid to tell our neighbors or to follow the commands of the Lord who died for our sins and rose for our justification. In fact, we just might not be too sure that this faith is "the way, the truth and the life" as the Master said, of Himself and His Church. And even if we really more or less believe, we can't fight the old city hall, whether it be in Podunk or Washington, D.C. We might get in trouble with the government that teaches a separation of church and state as "constitutional" when that phrase isn't even in the Constitution (go read it, it's on the internet, you might even be astonished that most of our laws are unconstitutional).

These are days when it can be dangerous to be a Christian in America.

These are days when it can be dangerous to be an honest and law-abiding unbeliever if such leads to speaking out against the corruption of the system that stifles honest capitalism in favor of multinational, globalist elitism.

These are days when people no longer feel they can speak their minds, they're afraid of their neighbors and even their relatives. The people live in fear, and older folks can recall a time, just over forty years ago, when no American had to live in fear of what they believed within the basics of the laws of any civil society ... laws against murder, assault, pedophilia, sodomy, and others that were generally believed to be the skeleton laws needed by a free society to rein in sociopaths who would do harm to all. Free speech wasn't public obscenity but the freedom to speak out against the ills that creep into any social order through the sinful nature of man and the penchant of the strong to grind the weak under their heels. After all, this was American, where all men were created equal under the laws of the land, as enumerated in our founding documents and locally enacted (and at times rescinded) laws by our elected representatives. We are and always have been a federal republic, not a "democracy."

Don't even try to tell me this is a free country. The tactics employed by the snoopers, the courts, the men in black uniforms who look more like space aliens than humans, and the persecutors who misuse the law to prod the population into submission by the devil's tactics of manipulation, intimidation and domination speak more of a totalitarian government than Red China's uniformed guards. We're just more subtle about the fact that the government has taken away the freedom of the press, the freedom of the representatives elected to office, and the entire Bill of Rights that allows the people to dictate to the government how we, the people, shall be governed and by whom.

More money has been poured into education than any other effort than perhaps defense or that sinkhole for taxpayer dollars called "Medicare" which is a good intention gone to pave the highway to debtor's Hell.

We fell into liberalism, which some have described as a mental illness and well it may be.

We have two political parties and they both scare the daylights out of anyone who has looked into the erasure of our national borders, the dilution of our European cultural heritage (along with the destruction of Europe's Christian and nationalistic cultural heritage). It scares the average person to know how much we don't know about what is happening to us. It is even scarier to have to depend on the internet press corps, a loose coalition of patriots, some with valid and careful observations and others with wild sensationalism to add to the fear factor.

The advertisers know what people feel they're missing, so we get repetitive catchwords like empower, control, manage, take charge and others that tell any cautious observer that those words hit a nerve because we've lost all feeling that we have any control over our lives, our future, our nation, the world that was to be built for the sake of the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

What happened?

Liberalism crept into every strategic office and every meaninful area of our lives from the highest offices in the land to the smallest classroom. What was meant to integrate has divided. What was meant to educate has come to indoctrinate.

What was once the path to building a better America became the road to globalist control of the masses under a system even Stalin would envy.

Years without having to defend liberty on our native soil, which we should have been doing rather than trusting our politicians and the do-gooder coverups euphemistically named "non-governmental organizations" to preserve sucker fish and cone snails while grabbing off land for United Nations control has left us comfortable, wimpy, fearful, weak, bowing to the Baals of government's making and elitist control while deviously persuading Christians that they must accept all sinners and their sins out of love. The public at large of whatever or no religious persuasion must accept vaccination regardless of the poisons it inserts into the systems of children too young to absorb such chemicals. The elderly are victims of the "I, me, my and mine" syndrome that says family is an obligation under the supervision of the state, and if the elderly are in the way, then they must be shifted off to old-age cages where they can die from something they never had until they arrived there.

When we were free as a nation under God, we had less disease, less crime, more respect for authority that deserved respect, and a moral compass that is now somewhere in the bowels of Atlantis.

Do not ask the way to correct things. Too many people know and far too many are afraid it might disrupt their comfort zones.

Of course, Christians could return to their faith once delivered and pray, having in many cases forgotten the power and privilege of prayer.

My country fell to the liberals, the crumbling began publicly in the 1960's but it wasn't outright oppression until the 1990's. Now illegal aliens have more rights than citizens, courtesy of a renegade government and a sold out political machine.

Perhaps a new generation of Mr. Smiths needs to come to Washington and to every state capitol, idealists who don't give up and say it's too big for all of us. After all, dominators are bullies, and bullies are just cowards who are able to convince the majority that they have the power, when it is we who have it and let them steal it.

It just depends on whether comfort is more important than integrity, and whether liberty was worth the price it once commanded.

A big congratulations to our brave and wonderful troops in Iraq. “Ding Dong the witch is dead” Wonderful development and progress……but of course most of us in the US know that every day our troops bring progress and guts to this war against freedom and our way of life! We ARE proud! Now…..I am reminded a few years back of when we killed Saddams two ever lovely sons Uday and Qusay how so many of the liberal, moronic press were so concerned about where the military housed their bodies. “We should treat them as Americans would…they were statesman…don’t just display them in the public airport.”

I couldn’t believe how many were horrified how we handled their bodies, mostly to prove that they REALLY WERE DEAD! Now, I can only imagine what the idiots are thinking this time……”if only we could have captured Al-Zarqawi…learned to understand him….gotten information out of him…..given him a proper and fair trial…..but you know how our violent troops are….just look how they were recently with those poor civilians….just a death culture. They need self esteem training….just too quick to snap! Take their guns and send them Oprah’s latest book! “If only they could be trained to pass out water to Al Kaeda, not bullets” “They probably won’t give what’s left of Al-Zarqawi’s body the respect it deserves.”

I said it when Uday and Qusay were killed and the eruption happened over where they were displayed….they were lucky I wasn’t in control because what those boot scrapes deserved was to have the Mothers of all the women they raped and tortured, take them and drag them through the streets! All that fuss over their bodies treatment, yet they were poster children for pervert serial killers! The obvious elephant in the room was NO big fuss by our media on how the bodies of our soldiers have been treated by the enemy!!! Now we have another chance to actually show sanity. Who actually cares what shape the left overs of Al-Zarqawi’s body is in. For all I care, put his left overs in a soup and make his supporters eat it. Obviously, I need to read some more self esteem books!!!

In addition, now we must listen to additional throw up from the media and liberals….”does this mean our troops come home now,” “can we get out of Dodge?” Lets just pretend like we all are the experts and have all the on ground intelligence to operate from and face the enemy with every day! Anything to make Bush look worse…who cares if we win this “false” war to begin with. This is the perfect opportunity, rather than REALLY give the proper support to our troops for this historic achievement, lets instead put even more manipulative, media pressure on them to end things QUICKLY!…..even if it is too quickly.

We all want our troops home BUT…. Its time we all understand that in war things get messy….ALL WARS are messes…get over it! Also, in all wars 1% or less of our troops snap under the pressure….get over it! 99% of our troops are the kind that we would LOVE to be our sons or daughters! Also, civilians in the war torn areas accidentally die…bombing of Berlin etc…..get over it! This war was started by Fundamentalist, Islamic extremists…..that is who the enemy is….not Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and atheists! Deal with it! I realize it is politically incorrect to even identify the enemy anymore let alone fight him……that is so right. “It wasn’t really Hitler we were fighting but our own denial and cruelty. After all, the Jews were in the way and Hitler was just cleaning a dirty house. He was forced to slaughter millions!

Also, on 9/11 our capitalist, Christian way of life just brought on the attack. Those little babies, Moms and Dads deserve what they got! Al-Qaida had to teach us respect! I can only hope our troops continue their awesome work and our media takes a downer pill and shuts up!!! Lets kill a few bad guys shall we.

Father’s day is just around the corner and time to reflect on what used to be compared to what is today.


By Betty Freauf

June 8, 2006

Father’s day is just around the corner and time to reflect on what used to be compared to what is today.

Someone wrote to Ann Landers in June 1987 reprinting a nostalgic gem that appeared in the Danbury (Conn.) News-Times about how fathers evolve. It went like this:

At 4 years my Daddy can do anything.

At 7 years my Dad knows a lot, a whole lot.

At 8 years my Father doesn’t know quite everything.

At 12 years, oh well, naturally Father doesn’t know that either.

At 14 years, Father? Hopelessly old-fashioned.

At 21 years, Oh, that man is out of date. What did you expect?

At 25 years, He knows a little bit about it, but not much.

At 30 years, Maybe we ought to find out what Dad thinks.

At 35 years, A little patience, Let’s get Dad’s assessment before we do anything.

At 50 years, I wonder what Dad would have thought about that. He was pretty smart.

At 60 years, my Dad knew absolutely everything!

At 65 Years, I’d give anything if Dad were here so I could talk this over with him. I really miss that man.

And then there was this jewel in Annie’s Mailbox from our 5/21/2006 newspaper from a retired naval officer who said two weeks ago his 16-year-old daughter had a date with a young man he’d never met. His wife, a teacher at the school, said he was a good kid.

When the young man showed up to get his daughter, he sat in the car and honked the horn. (Strike 1 against him). The father went out and told the boy she was not ready and that he should come in the house. He did, and then proceeded to call his wife by her first name (Strike 2) When he tried the same with old dad, the young man was sternly told to call him “Sir.” And finally when the daughter appeared, the young boy blurted out, “It’s about time” (Strike 3) and old dad blew his stack. His daughter cried and his wife has not spoken to him and now he wants Annie to tell him if he was wrong.

The father, in my humble opinion, was simply endeavoring to instill in this young man an old-fashioned value which is woefully lacking in many young people today called respect but the women now writing Annie’s column since she’s deceased told him his disciplinary tactics were too harsh for civilians and that such severity may keep all young men at bay and while it could protect his daughter’s chastity, it will also isolate her from normal socializing.

But before I give you my two bits worth about why dads are stigmatized today, maybe we should be asking what currently constitutes “normal socializing?” What was normal in my day certainly isn’t normal today. In the Bible Philippians 4:8 says we are to think on virtuous things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report but with the Internet and the televisions beaming toxic, mesmerizing and subliminal messages into our homes and our minds at all hours of the day, it becomes increasingly more difficult. Marxism believes the fastest way to indoctrinate a nation is to break down the long-standing and time-tested values of a culture and fill the vacuum with Godless Marxist ideology.

After 9-11, President George Bush told Americans to get back to “normal” as soon as possible. After that national calamity, people showed up in church for a few Sundays. It seemed to be a surface return to God but soon that, too, faded. And then we got back to “normal.” Our moral condition continues to deteriorate, lawlessness is running rampant, we have corruption in government and many businesses. Filthy language overshadows decency. We remain a sordid and sorry condition in America.

The Betty Friedan and the Gloria Steinem radical feminist leaders with a Marxist bent saw how quickly the white race was stigmatized during the Civil Rights movement to right a wrong so they figured they could use the same successful tactics on the men, i.e. intimidation. Women’s studies in college were implemented causing many young girls to have a negative effect on their thinking about marriage and family. Many began to check out the lesbian lifestyle. Up until then there was no more fundamental yet delicate relationship in society than male and female. On it depended the family. The result was class warfare – feminist style.

We see the consequences today: Timid men, no-fault divorces, same-sex marriage demands, illegitimate children and mothers on welfare, drugs, suicide, mothers having to leave their children behind to serve in combat duty and the list goes on ad nauseam. And while this may simply be a “sign of the end times” and the radical feminist movement may not be the sole reason for these problems, the movement certainly has been a HUGE contributing factor. While the baby boomer Friedan and Steinem feminist followers of the 60s and 70s may claim their efforts were all worthwhile, their lives turned out to be a contradiction. The author of the book What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us © 1999 said that today Betty Frieden is lonely and miserable. And we now see many of these women giving up careers, playing God and heading for a Sperm Bank.

Gloria Steinem, Founder of Ms. Magazine had an abortion at age 22 claiming that was the first time she took control of her life. She was liberated to make “choices.” A friend of Myrna Blyth, author of Spin Sisters © 2004, once told Myrna she stopped listening to Gloria Steinem’s views on women’s independence when she found out Gloria couldn’t drive.

A radical feminist transplant from New York City by the name of Vera Katz, a graduate of Brooklyn College in 1940 moved to Portland, Oregon in 1964. She couldn’t drive either (and the last I heard, still can’t). She listed herself as a “housewife” when she was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1973 where she and a handful of other feminists (all Democrats with exception of Republican Norma Paulus) got many anti-family bills passed. When speaking at a Women’s conference on a college campus Paulus, who later was elected as Secretary of State and Superintendent of Public Schools, told the young women with heads filled with mush (a Rush Limbaugh term) that the way they got all the feminist legislation passed with so few women in the Oregon legislature at the time was that they all hung together “irregardless of party.” They got the Democrat House Speaker sympathetic to radical feminist causes to send the bills to the committee he stacked with feminists to assure favorable passage from the committee and then on the House floor coerced the men legislators to succumb to their wishes and vote with them. The same Marxist tactics were used in the Senate and a pro-environmentalist Republican Governor and former Portland, Oregon T.V. anchorman by the name of Tom McCall signed the legislation.

Katz became Oregon’s first woman House Speaker. The agenda of these Oregon legislative feminists seemed to have been taken from the pages of the Communist Manifesto. When the GOP won control of the House several years later with the help of the conservatives who finally woke up, the male lickspittle elected as House Speaker turned out to be a traitor and continued to promote their feminist agenda just as President George W. Bush continues to promote Clinton’s liberal agenda. Vera went on to become Mayor of the biggest city in Oregon – the tail that wags the dog – Portland, Oregon and another reason Oregon is in the “red” category during elections.

After being defeated for her quest for governor by Democrat Neil Goldschmidt, exposed a couple years ago as a child molester of his baby sitter years earlier but went unpunished because the statue of limitations had run out, the last I heard, Paulus had been relegated to a menial position as head of the Oregon Historical society. It’s called job security and a big government pension. But the damage was done beginning in the 70s and families are having to live with the results today because once this legislation passes, it’s hard to get it repealed. In fact, that rarely, if ever, happens.

While many women have renounced this ungodly women’s movement and have moved on with their lives, Betty Friedan and her “Feminine Mystique” have left a shipwreck of other confused women followers. Friedan traded a comfortable lifestyle for a life of shrieking activism. However, in her book The Second Stage she still complains as she reflects on the effort she and the other radical feminists had put into their movement. She said, “Listening to my own daughter and sons, and others of their generation…she senses something OFF, out of focus…” She seems disgusted with these young people taking for granted the opportunities she and others had struggled to achieve. While her daughter may have not followed in her mother’s footsteps because she saw the hypocrisy, enough of her followers did and are now in prestigious, high-ranking, unelected governmental decision-making positions as well as handing down crucial judicial mandates – many unconstitutional which helps to fill our prisons to overflowing. So where’s the beef? Mission accomplished!

Betty attended the World Conference of Women in Mexico in 1975 and found out it was a Communist Women’s group, the International Federation of Democratic Women who were responsible for the 1975 the International Women’s Year, and yet Betty chose to become a professional propagandist for the Soviet-controlled Communist Party. We later heard about the well-publicized International Year of the Child.

In order to create a Soviet America, it would be necessary to eradicate the traditional family and to supplant the family with the state. Karl Marx called for the “abolition of the family” in the Communist Manifesto and in order to do that, men had to be stigmatized and made to feel unworthy of their station in life. So men, in general, husbands and Betty Crocker were out and Betty Frieden and her ilk were in. She said, “By the year 2000 we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God.” (Ms. Magazine, Saturday Review of Education 3/73) The “human potential” movement was developed to help man discover his innate goodness- and his own divinity. That movement is alive and well in most mainline and many evangelical churches today and the word “sin” is avoided for it might hurt the “self-esteem” of the pew warmers.

Today we have a “she-ocracy” says author and talk show host, Michael Savage “where a minority of feminist zealots rule the culture” and God forbid, we may end up with a female president. I may write about this Jezebel in a later article. The weeping prophet, Jeremiah, in chapter 37, says that evil women (in power) are a precursor to judgment and Isaiah 3:12 refers to women ruling over us.

Leon Trotsky wrote in 1917 said, “While we build the movement uniting women against their oppression, we try to win over the most conscious women to join us in building a revolutionary party that can unite all oppressed sectors of the population. The women’s liberation movement is a central part of the American socialist revolution in the making.”

Genuine feminism disappeared and men, in general, became angry and lost respect for woman. They didn’t give up their seats on a bus or opened doors for women. Most little girls no longer play with dolls or tea sets. They grow up, have a babies often out of wedlock and they don’t know how to change diapers without being shown by some paid government “expert.” Many woman gave up their dresses for pants suits and jeans, and while incapable of lifting and doing a man’s job, they put on work clothes and hard hats and demanded “free government child care,” “affirmative action,” “equal rights” and “equal pay” all the while perhaps hiring some illegal immigrant to clean their houses. Very little publicity is given to the many women who made great strides and achieved a place in a man’s world before the radical mis-named feminist movement of which there are many. But that’s a story for another day.

Danielle Crittenden wrote in her book What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us ©1999, “Many feminist critics of marriage insist that traditional marriage is, incompatible with modern women’s lives… (Radical) Feminists mistrust marriage so profoundly their response to the harm done to women by divorce has been to urge women to avoid it entirely. They resent all efforts to preserve it. What a (radical) feminist vision of marriage amounts to is every marriage should resemble a gay marriage, without husbands or wives or fathers or mothers. Instead, both ‘partners’ or ‘spouses’ should occupy the same roles within and outside the home” and this is the why your children in the public school system and perhaps even some so-called Christian schools are reading the book Heather Has Two Mommies.” However, even Oregon, one of the most liberal, progressive Marxist states in the union, passed overwhelmingly a ban on homosexual/lesbian marriages and because it is a state’s rights issue, other states will have to do the same and hopefully the feds will keep their nose out of our business.

While there may be a few Amazons equivalent to men in physical strength, most of us are not. Their lack of strength in positions such as police work puts their male partners as well as themselves in great peril and when they get hurt as many do, they file disability claims causing additional burden on the taxpayers. We have feminist prison guards and perhaps women firefighters with just such disabilities now. But a spokes woman in an Eastern Oregon county police department would take issue with my statement. She said in a liberal Portland, Oregon newspaper, “The officers we (used to) hire were warm and big and could whip everybody else. In today’s society, we don’t pick the biggest and meanest cops, we want intelligent people. It takes a special breed of cat to be a police officer. There is a weeding process. We don’t need to go backwards into the dark ages.” The radical feminists, like the radical black race-baiters of today, use intimidation and degradation to attain their fantasies. You’ll notice the words “intelligent people” and “special breed of cat.”

And less any one reading this believes me to be some type of a prissy woman, save the negative e-mails. I was putting 12 hours or more in a wheat field at age nine before you were born spotting trucks in the field. Believe it! I’d kneel behind the wheel. My dad would pull the throttle out of that old 1940 something truck and I’d drive like a snail to the next stop in the field to meet the combine and then I’d turn off the key. At age 15 I was driving the big wheat truck to the grain elevator and that was way before Betty Frieden and her friends clamored for “equal rights.”

If these women could intimidate Walter Mondale to put Geraldine Ferraro on the presidential ticket as his running mate, Americans should ask themselves, “What kind of a president would he have made?”

Men are created to be warriors – protectors of their families. They go into the military and they are trained to kill to survive. Women, as a general rule, are nurturers. It’s only been recently that strange things are happening with their minds and they are killing their children in unusual ways. Could it be all the antidepressant pharmaceutical prescription drugs people are taking these days causing these atrocities or has the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court abortion decision based on lies with no substantial constitutional basis coupled with the drugs desensitized some women to the point they no longer have a conscience? Is America being destroyed by a sorcerer’s spell? (Pharmakeia – Lev. 19:26, Acts 8:9) Are mothers today killing their children as they did in ancient times in order to serve the deity known as Molech? (Jeremiah 32:35.)

Faye Wattleton, an extremely beautiful and elegant African-American woman, daughter and granddaughter of ministers, was a staunch defender of reproductive rights and for years headed Planned Parenthood. In the July-August 1986 Humanist Magazine when she was given the Humanist of the Year award, commented “The threat of teenage pregnancy hits home the hardest if you have children and particularly if you have a daughter. My daughter is ten and like other ten year olds, she has got the world on a string. My solace in confronting her sexual maturation is the knowledge that she attends an all-girl school. And that’s exactly where I intend to keep her for as long as I can.” The height of her hypocrisy came through loud and clear a few months later on 10/17/1986 when it was reported in the Los Angeles Times regarding Planned Parenthood, “We are not going to be an organization promoting celibacy or chastity.” Planned Parenthood is allowed into the public schools to promote what Faye’s little girl avoided in her all-girl school – temptation.

Did Faye realize that premature sex is unnatural and will arrest or distort the development of the personality causing in later years, perhaps, multiple personality disorders – something unheard of until the last few years. Sex education should be left to parents and definitely not begun in grade school (often as early as kindergarten) but this is exactly what happens in many forms often hidden or without permission of the parents.

Judges 5 in the Bible tells the story of Deborah who went off to battle when Reuben preferred to stay home to tend the sheep. The average woman’s natural instinct is to be a helpmate. Women only step in to fill a vacuum left by men. It is one thing to be paralyzed by fear and confused in combat that the soldier fails to use his weapon. In that case, there is at least the plus factor of his presence alongside his buddies that keeps the morale from completely crumbling but to stay home minding the sheep like Reuben did in God’s eyes is sin. Men of all stripes today must get off the guilt trip and once again regain the headship of their families in a loving and respectful way. If America is to survive, it needs tenacious, steadfast, Godly men.

When a man’s Bible comes apart from usage, it is a sure thing he’s put together all right. Perhaps this Father’s Day would be a good time to give it a start. Divorce has taken its toll among many families and fatherhood has become an endangered species because Socialism, which has produced a plethora of welfare programs for women and children, has taken over the father’s responsibilities. This must stop otherwise the ship is going down and we’re all on board with no lifeboats.

A Spanish-language version of the award-winning book "Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID" is being released today in Latin American countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Panama, Venezuela, and Chile. The inital distribution will be to Christian bookstores, with general distribution to follow later this summer. The controversial work about the downsides of Radio Frequency Identification was originally published in English by American authors Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a controversial technology that uses tiny microchips to track everyday objects, animals, and even people from a distance. These RFID microchips have earned the nickname "spychips" because each contains a unique identification number, like a Social Security number for things, that can be read silently and invisibly by radio waves.

"It is very important that we get the word out to Latin America," says McIntyre. "The RFID industry has been targeting Hispanic people with this technology, believing they are not as informed about its dangers for privacy and civil liberties. We hope that making 'Spychips' broadly available in Spanish will sound the alarm."

McIntyre points to trials of the technology that have been taking place in Mexico as an example of how Latin Americans have been used as human guinea pigs by U.S. companies to test this new technology. One case in point is the Levi-Strauss company, maker of Levi's and Dockers brand clothing. The company started tagging garments in a franchise store near Mexico City last year and expanded its trials to two stores there earlier this year.

Latin America has also been eyed as a target for human-implantable RFID chips marketed by the VeriChip Corporation. In 2004, employees in the Mexican Attorney General's office were implanted to access secure areas, and recently there has been talk of chipping Latin Americans who wish to work in the United States.

President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia said he would consider chipping Colombian citizens who seek employment in the United States. Reportedly, the VeriChip Corporation has been in talks with Washington about how its chip could be used to register guest workers, verify their identities as they cross the border, and be used for enforcement purposes at the employer level.

"The problem with RFID is that it is tracking technology, plain and simple," Albrecht warns. "The industry is trying to downplay the dangers and create incentives to spread spychips around the world. Once Spanish-speakers read our book and realize big companies and governments want to use this technology to track them in public places and control their movements, we believe they will say 'no' to RFID."

Albrecht adds that she expects many Hispanics will connect implantable RFID technology to biblical prophesies that warn against marking and numbering human beings. "Many people in Latin America are devout Christians who will see this as much more than a privacy and civil liberties concern."


Liz McIntyre is a consumer privacy expert and author of Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID. In this explosive book, McIntyre and co-author Katherine Albrecht reveal how organizations like Procter & Gamble, Gillette, Wal-Mart, and even the U.S. Postal Service plan to use tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track everyday objects-and even people-keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go.

Katherine Albrecht is a privacy advocate and co-author of Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID. Albrecht has testified on RFID technology before the Federal Trade Commission, the California state legislature, the European Commission, and the Federal Reserve Bank, and she has given over a thousand television, radio and print interviews to news outlets all over the world. Her efforts have been featured on CNN, NPR, the CBS Evening News, Business Week, and the London Times, to name just a few.

George Santayana said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." If only such a cliché were not true with regard to President George W. Bush. If he believes caving in to Iranian extortion is the way to better his poll numbers, he may be right. But what he's doing is only postponing the problem of Iran's nuclear weapons program for a future presidential administration.

Iran is considering a package of incentives offered by six world powers -- including the United States -- in return for curbing its nuclear program, according to an Associate Press story.

In Tehran, chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani described the offer as containing both "positive steps" and "ambiguities."

The big giveaway package okayed by the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany in effort to end the growing tension over Iran's nuclear program.

White House spokesman Tony Snow said: "If the Iranians agree to suspend enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, then we'll be able to discuss more openly what the incentives are and we certainly hope that that's the case."

The package of extorted incentives -- which haven't been described to the public yet -- is part of a number of expected rewards presented to the Iranian government by the European Union's foreign policy chief Javier Solana.

According to the AP, the "package" is understood to include help in building light water reactors for a peaceful energy program. Also, the United States has agreed to provide Boeing aircraft parts for Iran's aging civilian fleet. This deal is a decisive break with a 26-year stance towards Iran, by offering direct talks between Washington and Tehran if the Iranian government halts nuclear enrichment.

The buzz within the Washington Beltway is that the deal smacks of the Bill Clinton/Jimmy Carter deal with the North Koreans in 1994. And that's not a good sign. The North Koreans snookered millions of dollars from the Clinton Administration in return for a promise to abandon their nuclear weapons program -- a promise they broke.

Carter met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang and returned to America waving a piece of paper and declaring peace in our time. Kim, according to Carter, had agreed to stop his nuclear weapons development.

The Clinton/Carter incentive program for North Korea included hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, food, oil and even a nuclear reactor. However, the agreement was flawed and lacked verification. In return, Kim elected to starve his people while using the American aid to build uranium bombs. The lowest estimate is that Kim starved to death over 1 million of his own people, even with the US aid program.

And while Clinton's flunkies in the mainstream news media blame Bush for North Korea's nuclear bombs -- because he hurt their feelings by including them in the so-called Axis of Evil -- the Marxist-Stalinist regime never intended to honor their agreement.

That plan was a fiasco. And when a liberal's plan becomes a fiasco, they keep using that plan over and over again. It's insanity -- the definition of which is doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. This time the liberal is George W. Bush.

So within a few months, we've gone from the US preparing a nuclear attack on Iran -- if you believe the story in the leftist New Yorker magazine -- to the US preparing to give a grab-bag full of goodies to a nation that harbors terrorists, trains terrorists and arms terrorists. A nation that contributes to the deaths of America's best and bravest. Apparently to President Bush the options are blowing up the Iranians to kingdom come or giving the Iranians oodles of largesse.

Could this be a result of the Bush family's relationship with Bill Clinton? Could Clinton truly be as charismatic and convincing as the news media say he is? I don't get it. I listen to him and I hear "Flimflam Man." I look at him and I see one of the world's greatest confidence men. Yet, somehow the Bushes, including Dubya, seemed enthralled by the man.

This is merely conjecture on my part, but I believe President Bush wants the Iran crisis to disappear in order to advance his true agenda -- rampant immigration and dissolving of America's borders, more government intrusion into the affairs of individual states and individual Americans, and kissing up to foreign governments to make deals that ultimately hurt Americans, but move closer to globalism.

And why should we be surprised? Like Clinton, Bush is a Globalyst. Like Clinton, he'd rather spend money on domestic and international social programs than on protecting the US. For instance, Bush appropriated under $2 Billion for border security, while he appropriated $12 Billion for HIV/AIDS programs in Africa. The US spends more protecting the Iraq-Iran border than is spent protecting the US-Mexico border.

Like Clinton's poll numbers in 1994, Bush's numbers are in the toilet and this may just cause a shift in power in the House and Senate come November. Clinton's remarks and policies caused an enormous shift in power that benefited the GOP. Bush's remarks and policies may cause a similar shift in power, this time benefiting Democrats.

Bush sold-out conservatives in so many ways that it doesn't take a degree in political science to know conservatives will watch reruns of "I Love Lucy" instead of voting for GOP candidates this November. His interest in a gay marriage amendment is too little, too late.

And now, Bush appears ready to enter a Clintonesque deal with the Iranians. Why bother? Truth be told, the US will never attack Iran. And Iran will work on obtaining nuclear weapons -- incentives or no incentives. Why bother rewarding them with taxpayer money? Bottom-line is that promises from radical Muslims aren't worth a plugged-nickel. To them, their word to the infidels is meaningless.

The answer is to disengage from foreign entanglements. Create a Strategic Defense System to protect the US. Protect our borders with all the resources necessary to protect them. Continue streamlining the military so that it is a leaner, meaner fighting machine that protects Americans, but is not used for foreign adventures such as Haiti, Kosovo and other regions in which we have no interests.

Maintain an intelligence and counterintelligence mechanism that works to protect Americans and doesn't get involved in partisan politics. The primary goal is to protect the homeland, not cut security budgets in order to create pork barrel projects and earmarks to help politicians maintain their power.

We got Kerry anyway!

When it appeared I would not and could not endorse President Bush for re-election in 2004, many of my friends – even my own wife – suggested to me that, if I refused to vote as I had in 2000, I would share some personal responsibility for John Kerry becoming our next commander in chief.

I must say, it was a compelling argument.

I found Kerry to be one of the most detestable human beings ever to walk planet Earth. He was a liar, he was an opportunist extraordinaire, and he was a traitor to his country. Indeed, it was hard to imagine Kerry in the White House.

And it wasn't just Kerry's past misdeeds that concerned me. I recall vividly in one of his debates with President Bush he actually called for providing Iran with uranium in exchange for a promise not to produce nuclear weapons.

This stunning display of naiveté (or was it an indication of something more sinister) may have been the clincher for me.

It was bad enough that Kerry had sold out American troops so many years earlier. It was bad enough that he had maligned the very character of his country so many years ago. It was bad enough that he deceived his way into a position of considerable political power already. My bigger concern was the kind of damage he could wreak on our country in the future as president. It was inconceivable.

And the most dramatic demonstration of his appeasement mentality was this crazy notion, expressed publicly in an open national presidential debate, that in response to Iran's aggressiveness, its threats, its sponsorship of terrorism and its total commitment to building and proliferating weapons of mass destruction for the purpose of defeating the United States of America, that we should simply give the Iranians the nuclear material it needed for a piece of paper stating it would only use it for peaceful purposes.

It was so Chamberlainesque!

This man was truly dangerous.

He was a joke.

So, I reluctantly agreed with my tormentors that Kerry had to be defeated – even if that meant four more years of Bush.

But, I must say, it worried me then that President Bush didn't pick up on this utterly insane suggestion and make hay with it in that debate – or, even later on in the campaign. What was he thinking? What were his advisers thinking?

Now it appears they were thinking Kerry had a good idea all along. Because they have adopted Kerry's unbelievably, incredibly irrational, suicidal proposal as their own – and as out national policy to "defuse" the Iranian crisis.

Students, pay heed. Observing this course of action will qualify you for three credits in Appeasement 101.

How many times do we have to learn the same lesson over again?

Didn't we learn it in Munich?

Didn't we learn it in Yalta?

Didn't we learn it more recently when President Clinton tried to buy off North Korea the exact same way?

It turns out, even though I abandoned my instincts and my principles – expressed in my own recent book, "Taking America Back" – never to support a candidate for any office who does not explicitly understand and support the Constitution of the United States wholly and completely and without reservation, I still got my worst fear. I got Kerry.

It appears President Kerry is running not only border security policy. It appears President Kerry is running not only domestic spending policy. It appears President Kerry is now running the so-called "war on terror" and other foreign policy matters.

I shouldn't have to say this. It should be abundantly obvious to any casual observer of the international scene. But apparently it is not. So let me state this plainly: Iran has no desire to give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons. It is the mission statement, the motivating force behind the mullah government to achieve a kind of parity with "the Great Satan" – us. Iran may take the bait and accept the aid. But it will only be to buy time for itself (like Hitler bought time at Munich) to prepare for war – an unconventional, asymmetric, global, nuclear terrorist war.

A border inspector accused of accepting cash and a luxury vehicle from smugglers driving carloads of illegal immigrants through border crossings

San Diego border agent arrested in raid


SAN DIEGO -- A border inspector accused of accepting cash and a luxury vehicle from smugglers driving carloads of illegal immigrants through border crossings was arrested Thursday.

The arrest came after a two-year investigation by the Border Corruption Task Force, a multi-agency team that pursues claims against officers at border crossings in California.

Investigators said that they had placed wiretaps on U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer Richard Elizalda's phones after receiving tips that he was involved in suspicious activities.

In an indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors, Elizalda is accused of allowing smugglers from Tijuana, Mexico, into the U.S. through the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego.

Elizalda, a 10-year veteran, was arrested in an early morning raid on his home in Chula Vista. Agents seized cash and two luxury cars.

Elizalda's arrest came a day after another border officer was arraigned on similar charges of accepting more than $500,000 in bribes from smugglers driving illegal immigrants through the border crossing at Otay Mesa, several miles east of San Ysidro. Investigators said they believe the two cases are unrelated.

Attempts to contact Elizalda's home were unsuccessful and the name of his lawyer was not known.

Elizalda remained in custody and was expected to be arraigned Friday.

As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

Record meteorite hit Norway
As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.

A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.

Farmer Peter Bruvold was out on his farm in Lyngseidet with a camera because his mare Virika was about to foal for the first time.

"I saw a brilliant flash of light in the sky, and this became a light with a tail of smoke," Bruvold told He photographed the object and then continued to tend to his animals when he heard an enormous crash.

"I heard the bang seven minutes later. It sounded like when you set off a solid charge of dynamite a kilometer (0.62 miles) away," Bruvold said.

Astronomers were excited by the news.

"There were ground tremors, a house shook and a curtain was blown into the house," Norway's best known astronomer Knut Jørgen Røed Ødegaard told

Røed Ødegaard said the meteorite was visible to an area of several hundred kilometers despite the brightness of the midnight sunlit summer sky. The meteorite hit a mountainside in Reisadalen in North Troms.

"This is simply exceptional. I cannot imagine that we have had such a powerful meteorite impact in Norway in modern times. If the meteorite was as large as it seems to have been, we can compare it to the Hiroshima bomb. Of course the meteorite is not radioactive, but in explosive force we may be able to compare it to the (atomic) bomb," Røed Ødegaard said.

The astronomer believes the meteorite was a giant rock and probably the largest known to have struck Norway.

"The record was the Alta meteorite that landed in 1904. That one was 90 kilos (198 lbs) but we think the meteorite that landed Wednesday was considerably larger," Røed Ødegaard said, and urged members of the public who saw the object or may have found remnants to contact the Institute of Astrophysics.

'Islamic indoctrination' taken to Supreme Court

'Islamic indoctrination' taken to Supreme Court
Asked to review case of class that had students 'become Muslims'

Posted: June 9, 2006

© 2006
A public-interest legal group is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review a decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals allowing a California public school to engage in a three-week intensive course for 7th graders on how to "become Muslims."

A California federal trial court and the 9th Circuit, widely considered the nation's most liberal appeals court, determined the class did not violate the Constitution.

As WND reported, the lawsuit was filed by the Thomas More Law Center against the Byron Union School District and various school officials to stop the "Islam simulation" materials and methods used in the Excelsior School in Byron, Calif.

The 2001 course had students take Islamic names and wear identification tags that displayed their new Islamic name and the Muslim star and crescent moon. They also were handed materials that instructed them to "Remember Allah always so that you may prosper"; complete the Islamic five pillars of faith, including fasting; and memorize and recite the "Bismillah," or "In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate," which students also wrote on banners hung on the classroom walls.

Students also played "jihad games" during the course, which was part of the school's world history and geography program.

Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, said the "case cries out double standard."

"The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is the same court that held our Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because it contained the phrase 'under God,' and yet they allow a three-week intensive course on how to become Muslims, including class memorization of Islamic prayers and participation in Islamic religious rituals," Thompson said.

Edward L. White III, the Law Center's trial counsel handling the case, argued that although a public school may teach about religion, the school district "went far beyond an explanation of the historical or literary significance of Islam and placed these seventh graders into the position of becoming trainees in that religion."

"These young children were indoctrinated in Islam, which the Constitution forbids," White said.

The Supreme Court will decide within the next few months whether to review the case.

The Law Center argues the panel did not address the plaintiff's claims that their free exercise and parental rights had been violated.

White says parents were never told about the Islamic program and didn't know they had the option to remove their children from such an activity.

One of the parents found out by accident, looking through her son's schoolbag after the program had finished.

In December 2003, the San Francisco court determined the school district had not violated the Constitution.

In her 22-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton determined Excelsior was not indoctrinating students about Islam when it required them to adopt Muslim names and pray to Allah, but rather was just teaching them about the Muslim religion.

But White insists a line was crossed, placing the students in the "position of being trainees in Islam, which is impermissible in a public school."

When WorldNetDaily first reported the story in January 2002 – shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks committed by 19 Islamist terrorists – major controversy ensued nationwide.

The course was part of a curriculum taught to seventh-graders all over the state, included in the state's curriculum standards required by the state board of education. Although the standards outline what subjects should be taught and included in state assessment tests, they didn't mandate how they're to be taught.

At the end of the three-week course, Excelsior teacher Brooke Carlin presented a final test requiring students to critique Muslim culture.

The Islam simulations at Excelsior are outlined in the state-adopted textbook "Across the Centuries," published by Houghton Mifflin, which prompts students to imagine they are Islamic soldiers and Muslims on a Mecca pilgrimage.

The lawsuit also alleges students were encouraged to use such phrases in their speech as "Allahu Akbar," which is Arabic for "God is greatest," and were required to fast during lunch period to simulate fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Nevertheless, Judge Hamilton ruled the program was devoid of "any devotional or religious intent" and was, therefore, educational, not religious in nature.
Marriage Amendment Failure
Reveals Impact of Cultural
Marxism in a Declining America -
Bill Wilson

By Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst

Wash—June 7—KIN—The cultural chasm between the vast majority of Americans who want traditional marriage protected and the representatives they choose that would by default legalize sodomy and sexual perversion was never more evident than in the 49-48 Senate vote against a constitutional amendment defining marriage between a man and a woman. The rejection of the marriage covenant as given by God Himself to Adam and Eve is a large step toward the defilement of the temple as prophesied in Revelation because once the underpinnings of God are rejected in society, the doors are open for a complete disregard for the sanctity of God and His purpose on earth.

Senate Democrats, except Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Harry Byrd of West Virginia, led the charge on Capitol Hill by voting against defining marriage between a man and a woman. In describing the vote on Capitol Hill, Kansas Senator Sam Brownback said the Democrat Party locked arms against the marriage amendment. The Democratic Party is standing along with a handful of Republican against an overwhelming majority of Americans who believe that marriage should never be allowed between members of the same sex.

A resounding example is Tuesday’s vote in Alabama, which became the 20th state to amend its constitution to define marriage between a man and a woman—by an 80% margin. Also Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives Tuesday passed by a 136-61 margin an amendment to the state’s constitution defining marriage between a man and a woman. The amendment will now go to the Pennsylvania Senate, where it is expected to pass by a wide margin. But even at the state level, those who oppose defining marriage between a man and a woman are Democrats. They try to block traditional marriage at the state level as well as at the national level.

Now here is the hard pill to swallow: Americans, both Democrat and Republican, want marriage to remain between one man and one woman. But there is an element of established political power, called cultural Marxists that want to destroy America by destroying its values. They are found mainly in the Democratic Party, but many Republicans join in as well. They are led by the finances of the National Education Association, Planned Parenthood, abortion rights activists, homosexual rights activists—all who have hijacked the Democratic Party and parts of the Republican Party. They have brainwashed minds and have lined politicians’ pockets with money.

The only line of defense that stands in the way of the fall of America—God fearing people who believe in Bible-based morals and true religion. These are people who do not view the world in terms of the politics of Democrats and Republicans, but rather hold a Holy Spirit worldview. Jesus said in Matthew 11:12, “…the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” And now more than ever we must lift up a shout against these evildoers in every public and private venue and cast our votes against them and turn this nation from its wickedness otherwise we will soon not have a nation. For marriage is the foundational institution of God’s economy, without it society is destroyed.

The Matthew 24 Watch

The Matthew 24 Watch
By Kato Mivule
April 17, 2005

Knowing the Times in which we live and Reading The Signs of the times has never been imperative and perpetual ignorance of the times we live is deadly and its effects is a lethal poison to all that we believe as Christians. Those who know the times will act wise but those who knowingly refuse to acknowledge the times we live, the fruits are very clear…far from those of The Holy Spirit.

A correlation can be clearly seen between those who read the signs of our times as command by Jesus and a strong a vibrant spiritual life; while those who out of procrastination, stupor, and impertinence reject to Watch as Jesus commanded, live lives governed by sin and cares of this world. In other words, show me a man who engages in The Lord’s Watch and I will show you a Christian seeking to please God or show me a man who out of lethargy rejects the Watch of The Lord and I will show you the most carnal Christian.

An evil spirit of lethargy and procrastination has taken over a many saints and kept many from the True Watch that The Lord Jesus Christ COMMANDED all those who love Him to do. This has been partly due to End-time teachers who have painted a picture of Jesus Christ coming to secretly ‘Rapture’ His church away…not mentioning the Left Behind Series. As such many Christians are simply waiting for the mystical wind to come and take them out of this world and escape its troubles—Escapism Theology.

The lives of such Christians is very evident, the fruits are very clear… I have noticed over and over again that Christians in such a mindset always don’t care about their spiritual lives but continue to be blinded by Left Behind series and Purpose Driven messages…supposing not calamity will befall them but somehow they will be raptured away and escape the tribulations coming to test all men.

Secondly I believe that the bible was not written for ‘experts’ with PhDs, those who can only understand ‘Eschatology’ or the ‘Study of End-Times’. Reading through the letters of the Apostles I don’t find any letter was written to ‘experts’. The letters were to be read in home group settings, mainly composed of poor Christians being persecuted and killed by Rome. Anyone there could understand what Jesus Christ was saying.

Those who continue to profit from End-time ministries also add insult to the injury. These groups claim to have the full knowledge of End-Time Events but deny other Christians access to such material unless they pay for it. As I have written before such actions have consequences…unless these teachers repent and turn away from such evil…their destiny is well determined.

Watching as the Bible teaches also has implications. There are actions to be taken. You cannot claim to Watch and not take any action. Good Watchers are those who are also good at doing The Commandments of The Lord. Their lifestyles are not driven by current trends in the world but governed by God. So in our Apostate Christian Generation, many refuse to Watch not because they don’t know what to do but because they are afraid God will command a change of their lifestyles…that they no longer walk according to the blueprints of this world. Due to procrastination, some Christians put off The Watch of The Lord to go enjoy the goodies of this world one more time.

Then there are those who claim to ‘Watch’ but only watch to see things that will please those who hire them to do so. These are the Positive Possibility Thinkers…who suppose that The Lord will conquer the earth through their positive influence…therefore they imagine a dominion of theirs here on earth and focus wholly on building magnificent kingdoms and taking over nations to extend rule and dominion of the American Church.

These things and many more led to the sin of procrastination, lethargy, and eventually full blown sin in the churches and Christians who fail to see any Redemption from Christ Jesus but eventually end up loving the world or inviting the World back into their churches and lives…Not Watching!

Also there is a group of Christians who think that ‘Watching’ is some mystical ‘thing’ that is supposed to be left for the ‘Prophets’ or those with ‘Prophetic’ Anointing. However, if you have your Bible and read it diligently, that is enough for you to Watch through God’s perspective as written in His Holy Word.

Jesus Christ Himself categorically COMMANDED His disciples to Watch and Pray. Jesus goes ahead to tell us the consequences of NOT Watching. In this article I take an endeavor to look at what Jesus meant by Watching and also the consequences of not watching.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the word ‘watch’ means to: Keep Vigil as a devotional exercise, to be awake during the night, to be attentive or vigilant, to keep guard, to keep someone or something under close observation, to observe as a spectator and to be expectant.

The Greek New Testament word for ‘Watch’ that Jesus Christ uses in Matthew 24 is ‘Gregoreuo’…Strong’s number 1127 and used a total of 23 times in the New Testament. ‘Gregoreuo’ has a meaning of…give strict attention, be cautious, active, to take heed lest through remission (decrease, cutback) and indolence (lethargy, stupor, sluggishness) some destructive calamity suddenly overtake one.

Looking at the definitions here gives us more clarity. The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition I like is to ‘keep guard’ and ‘be awake during the night’, both definitions take action and really don’t give room for any entertainment or laziness. However, The dictionary adds some humor to the definitions (depends on how you take it)…’to observe as a spectator’…looks like many Christians are turning into spectators than doers of the Word of God that Calls All His people to Watch.

What some Christians call watching is simply being a spectator. We love to read and contemplate on how Early Church Christians suffered for Jesus Christ or how Christians in Sudan and China are suffering for Christ but when our turn comes to Watch, we flee and hide. We procrastinate, we push it to the next generation thinking these sayings of Jesus Christ will happen in 30 years, maybe when we are dead or raptured away; and thus we remain indifferent.

The Greek definition now opens our minds and hearts to what Jesus Christ was saying in His Word. ‘Gregoreuo’ which is the Greek word for “Watch” give us the following…

Give Strict Attention to
Be Cautious
To Take Heed Lest Through Remission and Indolence some Destructive Calamity Suddenly overtakes you.

Of course ‘Remission’ meaning a decrease or a cutback
And ‘Indolence’ meaning Lethargy, Stupor, Sluggishness, Apathy, Slowness, Indifference, Lack of Concern, Lack of Interest, Languor, Laziness, sleepiness, and unresponsiveness.

All the above words are a characteristics of many Christians today who really show a lack of concern and such apathy to The Words Of Our Lord Jesus Christ and as such the lack of Watching and Self inflicted blindness, especially in America were riches and wealth take precedence over Jesus Christ’s matters. If any of those words appear in any area of your life or if you take any area of God’s Word with such attitudes of any of those above words, then certainly you are not watching.

So we see Jesus Christ warning us of all these things and that we are to keep watch. We truly live in a dark world and we are to watch through the night until The Master comes.

Why was Jesus Christ so adamant with His disciples to watch (Gregoreuo)? Is watching today a serious matter in the ‘Church’ or Christian circles? If we watch what should we watch for anyway? What are the consequences of not watching? Some people think watching as a Jesus Christ mentioned it was simply praying.

Again looking through the Book of Mark, Jesus Christ cautions with such seriousness for His disciples to watch. Lack of seriousness and lethargy in our Christian churches has caused us not to watch but be taken over by a spirit of stupor or sluggishness in the things of the Lord. Jesus commands every one to watch…all those who love him, not just some who are interested in what theologians have termed as ‘eschatology’ to further blind the saints of God with lingo from not knowing what is to come and thus the blindness of the times in which we live.

Watch in Context of Matthew 24...
However, we must also remember The Context in which Jesus mentions this word
‘ Watch’. We find that the first mention is in Matthew 24: 42

Matthew 24:42
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

The context had to do with The End-Times. It had to do with what Jesus Christ was describing to His disciples in Matthew Chapter 24. There cannot be a True Watching when we exclude Prophesy from the bible or misunderstand it, or worse like many do today show a lack of concern but endeavor ironically to spend millions of dollars by reading “Left Behind” books.

In other Words Jesus Christ’s Coming and The End of Ages as described in Matthew Chapter 24 will greatly affect our spiritual lives if we act on those words to WATCH. This will greatly help with growth of our spiritual lives if we do Watch properly as described in The Context of Matthew 24.

Many Christians don’t want this because they still enjoy their comfy lives…especially in America. As such we have hypocritical Christians who pretend to say thy watch through prayer and just reading God’s word but endeavor to skip all of Matthew 24 and all Prophesy on End Times just because things don’t line up well with their comfy Laodicean self-indulgent lifestyles.

So they amass teachers who teach things they love to hear and write books on end times they can find easily at Wal-Mart and have nothing disrupt the comfy of their lives. That is were we got all these “Left Behind” Theologies and “Secret Rapture” now series…lack of Watching…yes Watching is hard work…no laziness…it means you refuse to become indifferent…you refuse to become sluggish and you reject the repugnancy of modern day Christianity and all the self indulgency in Christendom.

Current Political Evangelicalism is due to Lack of Matthew 24 Watch…
The Matthew 24 ‘Watch’ has to do with seeing Jesus Christ as The Only King of kings and Lord of Lords who will come to set things in order. The Matthew 24 ‘Watch’ has to do with us putting our hope and trust not in princes but in Jesus Christ who will come in all His Glory and every eye will see Him. The reasons we Christians in America placed our hope in GW Bush is because we rejected The Matthew 24 Watch.

Yes, many Christians blindly voted for the Neo-con Illuminati because they were not keen on the Matthew 24 watch and rejected it and or simply became indifferent and showed a Lack of concern, stupor, apathy and sluggishness, so as to protect their riches and comfy lives, hoping a ‘Christian’ President will help protect their ‘Christian’ Rights. They placed their hope and trust in princes in whom there is no help…

Psalms 146: 3
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

Again looking at the Greek word for ‘Watch’, Gregoreuo, it has to do with watching so as not to be suddenly taken over by destructive calamities. Jesus Christ was clearly warning His disciples that if they would not watch then sudden, unexpected calamities would over take them…the thief in the night would come to them unaware. Certainly those who are wise in our times will take on the Matthew 24 Watch.

Looking at a few scriptures were 'Gregoreuo' is used in the New Testament…

Matthew 24:42…Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 24:43…But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watch ed, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Matthew 25:13…Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 26:38 …Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

Matthew 26:40…And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Matthew 26:41…Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Mark 13:34…For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Mark 13:35…Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

Mark 13:37…And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Mark 14:34…And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.

Luke 12:37…Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watch ing: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

Luke 12:39…And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watch ed, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

1Corinthians 16:13…Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Colossians 4:2…Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

1Thessalonians 5:6…Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

1Peter 5:8…Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Revelation 3:2…Be watch ful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Revelation 3:3…Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Revelation 16:15…Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watch eth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

The Coming of The Lord Watch...

Matthew 24:42
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Certainly ‘Watch’ has to do with The Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ as shown in the scriptures above. Matthew 24 is very troubling to those who hold to a ‘Left Behind’ Series Theory, in part because there is no escapism in Matthew 24 anyway, it looks like Jesus Christ simply tells His disciples what they will have to go through…very difficult times. Many people try to insert ‘The Secret Rapture’ here and there in Matthew 24 but it all fails to fit in.

The Saint’s redemption is clear at the end when Jesus Christ comes in His clear that any serious believer would understand and do the command of The Lord to Watch till He comes through the troubled times Jesus speaks about in Matthew 24. We are certainly to watch for all the signs Jesus Christ mentions in this chapter and never ignore them. Those who do ignore these signs are only drinking from the devils cup of deceit and stupor, being blinded at the Lord’s Coming and as such sudden destructive calamities will overtake them unaware.

The Prayer Watch...
It also has to do with Prayer but in context that we will not be tempted by the evil one to sin and thus become sluggish, indifferent and lukewarm as such sudden destructive calamities and The Lord’s Coming take us unaware because of our sinful behaviors. This type of Watch has to do with our daily relationship with Jesus Christ. It has to do with seeking God’s Will and Knowing The Lord’s Heart and doing as He pleases. We must remember that all this has to do with our anticipation to meet Jesus Christ and be with Him forever.

Rebellious Christians who have no eagerness to see Jesus Christ will have a shallow prayer life often characterized with praying for material things like new cars, houses, jobs, and more material blessings as is evident today in many American and Westernized Churches. The Matthew 24 Prayer Watch has also to do with asking God for strengths to go through what was coming. Jesus Christ in Luke 21 emphatically stresses this Prayer Watch…

Luke 21:34-36
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

It is important to also note the things Jesus Christ commands us to watch and be careful about in these times we live as mentioned in the Luke 21:34-36 piece of scripture above…

Take heed to your selves…
Lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with...
Cares of this life
And so the day comes upon you unawares
Jesus Christ fore saw the times in which we live were men only care for their stomachs and mammon. There has never been such a materialistic society in history as we evidence the fall of America to the Spirit of vicious greed and materialism. Jesus Christ however, warned us to watch that the cares of this life should not blind us at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

So we see Jesus Christ commands His disciples to pray for strength so as to…
Be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass
And to stand before the Son of man
Any True Christian Prayer Watch has to engage in The Matthew 24 Watch…
Now I find it satirical that many so-called Watch Ministries get entangled with watching what types of demons live in their city or town, however the Watch that The Lord commanded His people in Luke 21:34-36 is totally ignored. It is a waste of time and energy doing all spiritual mapping to take over cities and yet totally ignore The Lord’s Watch as in Matthew 24. You can spiritual map all you want but if you ignore The Matthew 24 Watch of The Lord, the Devil has then succeeded in diverting you from The Lord’s Watch.

It is also very difficult if you prescribe to the “Left Behind” and “Secret Rapture” theories to ever engage in such prayer for endurance and perseverance, and checking one’s lifestyle so as not to be caught up in the drunkenness and stupor of this world. The reason is because such theories believe you are to reign as a king here on earth and then be raptured away secretly before disaster comes…Dominionism Theology.

However, it is more imperative than ever that we begin to ask God for strength to endure the days coming ahead and that we never get caught up in the desires of this world. The Word of God should be a Light to us to search our hearts that no evil or goodies of this world capture any area of our lives.

Those who reject this type of watch will insolently live a type of Christianity that enjoys the drunkenness, stupor, and cares of this world. Such Christians will be caught unaware. For calamity will come upon them like a snare. I am afraid than many American Christians and those who love Laodicean westernized Christianity fall in this category and choose to refuse to watch.

The tribulations coming ahead will require special strength from God for His saints to help them endure. You are not going to stand by mere stubbornness and reject the onslaught of the anti-Christ forces, which are already at work. It is going to take the Holy Spirit Strength and not man made strength. There are Christians who think this is just another joke and take such warnings with flippancy. They claim they are ready to die for Christ but have no real insight of what is coming ahead.

I have heard some claims that it is easy to die for Christ but very hard to live for Christ. Such Christians though are right with the latter but are dead wrong with the former. It is going to take Strength from The Holy Spirit when they try to reprogram your brain to accept the anti-Christ…not mere doggedness.

I will warn you that begin to ask God for strength to endure what is coming. It is going to be so horrible…the greatest tribulation ever in history. So you are going to need strength that comes from The Holy Spirit to overcome and not just mere stubbornness. Jesus Christ was very serious when He commanded us to pray so as to endure and escape these times.

So any Prayer Watch that is of The Lord cannot ignore The Matthew 24 Watch that Jesus Commanded. If it does, I suggest that should be a red flag for you to begin asking questions.

Those who claim another watch other than The Lord’s Watch, certainly Watch in vain and the Bible is clear about that…

Psalms 127:1
1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

So mere Watching that neglects the Prophetic Scriptures, End-Times and The Coming of Jesus Christ is a Watch in Vain. I know this is a very hard saying especially those who engage in Intercessory ministries and Prayer Warriors…certainly if your Watch ignores The Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ, you Watch in vain. It would be worthless going on every street in your City and mapping all demons that live on every tree top but ignore the Prophetic End time Watch that Jesus Christ Commanded.

The ‘Not Fall into Temptation’ Watch…
While Jesus was agonizing in deep prayer before He was crucified, He commanded the disciples to Watch with Him. He found them asleep and commanded that they at least Watch an hour with him. He told them to Watch so as not to get into temptation. Trouble times where coming ahead. Jesus Christ knew he had to endure very worse times ahead and was Watching and praying for strength to endure what was coming His way.

Jesus Christ did not ask for a ”Secret Rapture” to escape what was coming but simply prayed that The Father’s will be done. The disciples of course in the flesh, decided to sleep on. True to Jesus’ words did His hour of tribulation come. One thing after another and Peter is fighting with swords…fighting in flesh and blood. But we remember Jesus had warned them that they needed to pray so as not to be taken by the temptations that were coming ahead. This was not a battle in the Flesh but a Spiritual one…Jesus was to overcome the Devil on The Cross.

The same warnings go out to the Church today. Sadly to say, in The West, Especially America and its Laodicean Christianity, we have not heeded to the Commandment of The Lord to Watch and not fall into temptation in these perilous times. It is interesting that the Greek word that Jesus Christ used in the Garden of Gethsemane is the same word ‘Gregoreuo’…The disciples were warned to stay alert, awake, not allow stupor, drunkardness, sleepiness, Lack of concern, indifference, apathy, lukewarmness, so as not to be overcome by sudden calamities.

The disciples slept, when the hour of testing came, Peter resorted to the flesh with guns blazing…or should I say with swords blazing and cutting off someone’s ear. This is the present day church. We have resorted to flesh and blood. We have resorted to a dominionism gospel of flesh and conquest. There is almost no difference between an evangelical American Christian today and the crusaders…they all believe in dominionism, with violence in order to extend what they think is God’s kingdom.

Some of today’s American Evangelicals believe in torture of those out of paranoia they think are terrorists. We have Christians today who believe that Missiles and bombs will help extend the kingdom of God. The clear appalling example was when so-called evangelical Christians supported GW Bush and his so-called war on terror in Iraq in hunt for purported weapons of mass destruction. It turned out that all this was based on lies and deceit and to amazement Christians still voted to uphold the Neo-con agenda of Violence, bloodshed, and Oil loot in the Middle East in the name of Freedom.

However, the fall into such temptation came as a result of rejecting The Matthew 24 Watch of our Lord Jesus Christ that only sees hope and redemption at the Coming of Jesus Christ. Christians in America resorted to war and bloodshed to free countries, some even claimed that America was right in attacking Iraq so they could go and preach the gospel in these ‘heathen’ nations…lack of watching!

So American laodicean Christians even to this day refuse any rebuke and hate and disparage all who stand to correct them but continue to support a regime in America that supports torture, murder, looting oil, bombing innocent civilians, and much more…all in the name of dominionism and extending what they call God’s kingdom.

I warn all who read this article as I have always done before that such so-called Christians who continue to support, such Neo-con State sponsored atrocities against other nations while hiding behind the Holy Name of Jesus Christ are not true Christians but dogs, sorcerers, murderers, idolaters, lovers of lies and practice lies (support liars) and such have no part in God’s Kingdom…unless they REPENT, their destiny is clear…HELL and THE LAKE OF FIRE…

Revelations 22:14-15
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

So if your ‘Patriotism’ is causing you to sin, and engage in, or help others murder, torture, warmonger, then repent and turn to Jesus Christ, He is greater than your image of Patriotism. Remember you will stand alone before Jesus Christ, GW Bush will not stand with you, neither did he force you to support his wars for oil and you know it. Fear God and not man…repent; be zealous and serve Christ alone.

It is very clear the Lord calls us to watch so as not to fall into temptation when the tribulation times or the hour of our testing comes. Not only are we to Watch against State sponsored sin but any sin in our lives certainly.

I challenge anyone to re-read Matthew 24 prayerfully with ‘Watch’ in mind.

The Matthew 24 ‘Signs of the Time’ Watch…
Jesus gave the signs in Matthew 24 that I believe should be easy for anyone to follow and know that we truly live in the end times. Many people have been lead to believe that this chapter is beyond their comprehension…those that read it turn it into debates of when the ‘rapture’ would occur but don’t want to deal with scriptures that call Christians to endure and persevere.

However, Jesus gave us many hints that we need to seriously Watch if we are to engage in the Matthew 24 Watch of The Lord. For instance earthquakes are happening at a very higher rate than they used to previously, we all witnessed the Tsunami earthquake if you are still alive. Many Christians especially in the West go ahead and ignore such signs and give silly reasons as to why they do.

They pretend that they are not to worry or be anxious, they comfort themselves in a false security…if you think so, then you are being fooled and blinded by Satan himself. Jesus Christ was clear of such behavior and called such people who cannot read the signs of the times hypocrites. This category of lazy Christians can interpret the stock market and weather patterns but flippantly with procrastination ignore the Geo-physical signs of our times.

Matthew 16:1-3
1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

We are called to Watch for those signs is a command from Christ Jesus. I do have a Geo-Physical Blog I follow that keeps scientific records of these Geo-Physical signs Jesus Christ told us about, you can take a look and Watch…

The Responsibility To Watch, a COMMANDMENT from Jesus Christ…
Now we know that the Responsibility to Watch is not just for some few believers but Jesus commanded his disciples and told ALL of them to Watch. Truly we live in perilous times and these are the last days, we cannot afford to sleep and stay blind. The early church knew that they had to keep watch. Peter writes his epistle to the saints and reminds them to Watch.

If early church saints had such a sense of urgency to Watch, almost 2000 years ago, then what about we Christians today? Why do we hide from The End time Prophetic Watch of The Lord Jesus Christ? Truly if we fail or have no growth in this area of our lives then the fruits will be manifest in other areas, we begin to slowly accept the dominionism gospel and see our selves as citizens of the earth and not Citizens of heaven.

Mark 13:37
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

1 Peter 4:7
7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

2 Timothy 4:7
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

1 Corinthians 16:13
13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Blessings for those whom The Lord Finds Watching…
Certainly there are blessings for all who Watch and engage in The Lord’s Watch. The blessings am speaking about don’t have to do with money but have everything to do with your spiritual state before The Lord. Blessings these days are confused with money and material gain but I am speaking about the Blessings of your growth in relationship to Jesus Christ. The evil spirits that reign on this world do not blind you but you are blessed because you await the salvation that comes from Jesus Christ and not man.

Your eyes behold Jesus and are fixed on Him and not the cares, worries, and burdens of Life. You are blessed to be counted worthy to suffer for Christ Jesus and to truly love and worship Him, anticipating the day you will be with him forever and ever.

Proverbs 8:34
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. 36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

Luke 12:37-40
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

Consequences of Not Watching…
For those who refuse to Watch, certainly the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the Night. It will be like a snare to all who refuse to watch. Sudden calamity will strike many Christians who reject the watch of the Lord.

Now, does that mean it has to do with your salvation if you refuse to Watch? Certainly that is what the Bible says, that is what Jesus Christ said…that if you fail to Watch then there would be consequences…

Revelation 3:3
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Revelation 16:15
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watch eth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Luke 12:39
And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watch ed, and not have suffered his house to be broken through

Luke 12:36-44
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

Lack of Watching Means Portion with Unbelievers...
So for all who reject God’s Call on His People to Watch can rest be assured of having their portion with unbelievers and be cut asunder. For the ‘Feel good’ message lovers and those who think I am ‘harsh’, these are not my words, they are of Jesus Christ. Certainly you will have your portion with unbelievers cause the Lord will come at a time when you don’t expect Him.

One thing the bible is clear about is that Hell and the Lake of fire and the wrath of God will be upon those who don’t believe in God and all those who hate and are rebellious against God and His Holy One…certainly no one with working common sense would love to have their portion with unbelievers…simply because they refused and rejected The Matthew 24 Watch of The Lord.

Tools for Watching…
Every saint in Christ Jesus should arm themselves with the most powerful tools to help keep The Lord’s Watch. It does not take a PhD as some end time and ‘prophetic’ pundits depict it to be. Many Christians have not kept the Watch of The Lord because some so-called experts in the End Time prophesy claim that it is too difficult to understand What Jesus Christ was saying as concerns the last days. Many of these so-called prophesy teachers try to make it harder for believers to understand end times because they want you to buy all their books and stop reading the bible for your self…its all about money.

1)The Word of God…
The best source and tool in the Watch of The Lord is His True and Holy Word. Simply reading the bible and looking at all that is going on in our current world in Light of what the Word of God says. The word of God is not biased as your local CNN or Fox News Channels.

If you happen to read the book of Hosea or Habakkuk you should have no problems seeing America in light of God’s Word and how we are no different from the people Hosea and Habakkuk prophesied about. Most people will get to this point, however they are then held back by false patriotism and love of so-called freedoms that don’t exist…they find it very disturbing that God could judge America just like Hosea and Habakkuk prophesied.

However, to the wise, look at things the way God sees them through His Word. Secondly, The Word of God will help shine light in areas of our lives that need to be subjected to The Lord’s will. God’s Word will help us deal with those areas in our lives that are being burdened by materialism and all cares of this life that Jesus warned us to Watch for. So I challenge all Christians, rather than Watch the so-called conservative Fox News channel, read your bible…watch God’s Channel—God’s Word.

Read Psalms 119 and you won’t be surprised with another 911…

Psalms 119:11-16
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes. 13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. 14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches. 15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. 16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

2)The Leading of Holy Spirit…
As you engage in the Matthew 24 Watch of The Lord, allow The Holy Spirit to guide and lead you. The Holy Spirit is God and not just some force or power like some Christians would like to portray, that you could command Him anytime you wish to do this and that miracle for you.

We have engaged in such stupidity and childishness simply because we have no Revelation of Who The Holy Spirit is. Any Watch with no leading and guidance of The Holy Spirit is a waste of time and energy; you might as well watch a movie. The Holy Spirit will always lead you to Truth in God’s Word. He will truly convict of sin and judgment to this world.

The Holy Spirit will also comfort you, especially during the Tribulation periods we have entered in. The early church experienced this comfort but, during times of persecution in the book of Acts. So I am not speaking of Western American comforts, those are not real, they are synthetic, many people who have all the riches and comfort they enjoy, are very depressed in America and no wonder, America is the largest consumer of anti-depressant drugs.

However, The Holy Spirit Comfort is authentic and we are going to need a lot of that in the days coming ahead, when persecution against the saints intensifies. When they kill your family while you watch because you love Jesus Christ, you will need genuine comfort from The Holy Spirit in such times.

John 16:6-14
6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Unquestionably prayer is not to be taken lightly like we do today. Again Prayer in context with God’s will and The Lord’s Watch that we fall not into temptation and that God will give us grace to endure the tough times coming ahead. Prayer again these days has been turned into some magic by Christians who think they can get new cars, wives, husbands, jobs and all material goods.

However, prayer in these last days has to do with seeking God’s Will, and asking for strength to persevere and endure. Prayer has to do with asking God for an outpouring of His grace on men and women that they will repent and turn to the Lord, that God will grant boldness with signs and wonders to His servants as they proclaim God’s Word fearlessly in these end times.

We need such boldness and wisdom that comes only from God to proclaim His word in these last days accompanied with signs, wonders and miracles…just like in the early church as we preach repentance and God’s coming Kingdom to all men.

Matthew 26:41
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak

Colossians 4:6
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

Luke 21:36
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Jesus Christ’s Commandment to us is serious and great emphasis that we pray. It is surprising that many Western Pastors take prayer lightly. However, for us to endure what is coming ahead we are going to need very serious prayers. I am not speaking just of a few ‘gifted’ prayer worriers…you will need to learn how to pray to endure what is coming.

Jesus Christ did His part before He was crucified on the cross. He prayed as the disciples slept and certainly God strengthened Him to endure the cross. Now the time is ours to endure the greatest tribulation ever, we are going to need all the prayers we can ever get. I know many Christians take such warnings with frivolity but that times are indeed upon us and we are to Watch and Pray more than before. When they arrest you and throw you into jail and torture you, you will not endure by your mere stubborn heart but you will have to endure with strength from Jesus Christ Himself.

Many times I tremble and shake at what is coming, when God reveals a little to me, none of us will boast of merely saying that we can die for Christ out of our own strength…such talk is likened to Peter saying he would die with Jesus Christ on the Cross but when that time came to crucify Jesus, he was no where to be found but denied The Lord three times…begin now when things are still a little bit okay to pray that you will endure what is coming ahead…that God will strengthen you and you will have boldness from Him to proclaim His Word fearlessly with signs and wonders as God confirms His word., and when the time comes for you to be tortured or beheaded for Christ you will have strength to endure. As the Lord Jesus Christ Says so I say to you WATCH.
