End Times Prophecy Report

Though Thanksgiving is a secular American holiday, American Christians still have the liberty to celebrate it by giving thanks to an Almighty God for all of their blessings throughout the year.
“Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.”
“For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
—1 Timothy 4:4-5
The Word of the Day: Gratitude
“The traditional Thanksgiving began in what year? 1621. And soon afterward, the Indians realized they had a failed immigration policy.”
“The big news this week is that the U.S. finally got Iran to agree to stop making nuclear weapons. In exchange, the U.S. has freed up $8 billion of Iran’s assets. When asked how it plans to spend the money, Iran said, “We’re going to buy nuclear weapons.”
Obama: I can tell who the immigrants are here just by looking at faces – And for my next trick…
BLACK FRIDAY – That vile, American celebration of covetousness and greed known as Black Friday is not unique as a name. The name Black Friday has been used for days other than the day after Thanksgiving. A few of those other days known as Black Friday are:
- Black Friday (1869), the Fisk-Gould Scandal, a financial crisis in the United States
- Black Friday (1881), the Eyemouth disaster in which 189 fishermen died
- Black Friday (1910), a particularly violent women’s suffrage event in England
- Black Friday (1939), a day of devastating bushfires in Victoria, Australia, which killed 71 people
- Black Friday (1945), an Allied air attack against German ships in Norway
- Hollywood Black Friday (1945), a riot at the Warner Bros. studios
- Black Friday (1978), a massacre of protesters in Iran
- Black Friday (1987), a tornado in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
- Black Friday (1993), a series of bomb explosions in Mumbai, India
- Black Friday (Maldives), a 2004 crackdown by government forces on a peaceful protest
And that’s not all: A complete list of Black Fridays. So, at least maybe the shopping spectacle–increasingly marked by violence and rude behavior over trinkets, trifles and trash–is aptly named.
Is your TV spying on YOU? It sounds like science fiction but many new TVs can watch you – telling advertisers your favourite shows or even filming you on the sofa. And there’s no off switch! – One more reason to swear off the alternate reality of television.
Thanksgiving–A Time for Gratefulness to God – Ahhh, if only the piece would deliver what the headline promises. There are many little white lies sprinkled among the ersatz sentiments, American patriotism and faux history lessons. Not very much about Thanksgiving; that’s just the holiday on which the author hangs her clever exhortations. She does wrap the American flag around two scriptures, distorting their meaning.
The author’s bio blurb says she “calls all citizens to awaken, arise, and act in restoring one nation under God.”
Seems to be a lot of that going round. “Restoring the nation” is the ring through the nose by which many American Christians will be led to the slaughter.
Where did the “One nation under God” come from? The Pledge of Allegiance. But the original pledge, written in 1892, was:
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The addition of “under God” came about in 1954. Two years later, Congress made “In God we Trust” the national motto. Because the USA became a particularly holy nation in the 1950s. Because the mid-50s signaled that the USA was all about God in our deeds as well as in our words.
Anyway, this was just in time for Christianity to begin its long downward spiral in the USA. But what should we expect from a country that has always been shy about connecting the name of “Jesus” to our “Christian nation.”
“Rising up” is a popular exercise in America these days, especially among American Christians–particularly those of the Dominionist strain.
There’s gotta be a workout DVD in there somewhere…
“Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.”
“Thanksgiving is the best. I was so pleased last year. Things were going great, having a lot of fun, the house was full of people, everybody getting along — and then I realized that by mistake I had picked up the wrong family at the airport.”
“Obama said, “My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody. If you’ve got a plumbing business, you’re gonna be better off if you’re gonna be better off if you’ve got a whole bunch of customers who can afford to hire you, and right now everybody’s so pinched that business is bad for everybody and I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
Maybe Obama and the pope are soulmates–which is not a biblical concept.
Pope Francis connects the Vatican system to Revelation 17 – Interesting.

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.”

RECEIVED IN MY EMAIL:
From Our Family to Yours
Barack and I have so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, and that includes people like you who’ve been by our side, working for change right from the beginning.
Because of your hard work, passion, and dedication, we have accomplished so much over this past year. We’ve continued to create jobs and rebuild our economy. We’ve cut carbon pollution so we can preserve our environment. We’ve witnessed historic victories for equality across the country, all the way to the Supreme Court. And soon, millions of Americans will finally have access to quality, affordable health care — many for the first time.
Before we all celebrate with our personal traditions tomorrow, I want to start a new one — I’m hoping that you’ll take a moment to share what you’re thankful for this year:
OFA will be gathering some of these notes and sharing them on BarackObama.com. I can’t wait to see what you have to say.
Thanks so much for everything you’re doing — and from our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving.
P.S. — As you spend time with loved ones this holiday season, be sure to talk with them about what health care reform can mean for them — OFA has some tips to help get the ball rolling.
“Researchers in Canada say they have discovered the part of the brain that is used to make decisions, and this is weird. If you’re married, it’s actually located in your wife’s brain.”
Parents Enraged After School Tampers With Students’ Cell Phones – Parents don’t bat an eye over losing most parental rights at the schoolhouse door. But let the school attempt to discipline their little Junebug or enforce school rules and they are “enraged.” Tweens and teens can call their parents every name in the book and totally disregard what they’re told. But let a teacher enforce rules set up to ensure the safety and learning of all students and those same parents are ready to SUE! over Precious’ trampled “rights.”
Couple has an Open Marriage so Complicated, it’s Hard to Keep track (w/VIDEO) – And yet, there are those who are not persuaded that we are living in the last days. Even worse, there are those who are living like it.
NO DICHOTOMY – It’s not often the population of any group can be divided into only two equal, non-overlapping subgroups. IF a large group can be divided into two non-overlapping subgroups, that is a called a dichotomy.
In these last days, it’s tempting to split Christianity into two groups: 1- those who have their heads in the sand; and, 2-those who don’t. However, there are more than two groups in these last days. A few of these are:
1- There are those in the church who insist that “things will get better.”
2- Those who believe we are in the last days and, like Alfred Hitchcock movie buffs, love to be scared by tales of impending disaster lurking around every corner.
3- Those who believe we are in the end times, but want to hedge their bets by claiming “I think we have a lot more time left.”
4- Those who believe we are in the end times and are anxiously awaiting the return of the King of Kings.
5- Those who believe we are in the last days but can’t break with the things of this world because “Hey be reasonable , we have to live our lives, don’t we?”
6- Those who believe we are living at the end of time and who ceaselessly search the writings of men and extra-biblical sources for information about the season.
That would make the group into a sextotomy.
