SYRIA: Starving rebels eat lion from Damascus zoo – “Hard to make this stuff up” is always the claim.  But sometimes, one is tempted to believe that the Corporate Media does just that.  IF for no other reason than to relieve the sheer boredom of those who dream up support for media narratives all day long.

LEBANON: Syrian-based violence spills over into Lebanon

AUSTRALIA; Mass of Dead sea birds continue to wash up on Australia’s coast

NORTH KOREA: Revealed: American veteran held in North Korea was in charge of top secret force training guerrillas who fought behind enemy lines during Korean War

ISRAEL: Israel’s former leader slams Netanyahu over US

CANADA: CBP Agent: Northern Border most likely entry point into our country for terrorists – Heads up!  File this away, readers.  It will likely reappear in the near future for a couple of reasons.  1- as an explanation for why things have gone awry in our concentrated efforts to “keep the home front safe;” and, 2- as an explanation of why the fevered pace of building a fence along our NORTHERN border needs to quicken.

Dial 00000000 for Armageddon. US’s top secret launch nuclear launch code was frighteningly simple

Do you know the One who can give you peace of mind?  Get the peace that passeth all understanding.

37% don’t think the USA spends enough on defense – The United States spends more on its military than the next 10 countries–combined.

In God we trust, maybe…but not each other – Americans don’t trust their neighbors.  It’s only taken about 25 years of the Corporate Media pounding story after story of serial killers, random shooters and other paranoia for Americans to feel isolated.

6 percent of Americans approve of Congress – What’s to like?  The nation would be better off being governed by a Congress of used car salesmen, common criminals and reprobates.  Oh wait…

The Supreme Court confronts the line between free speech and security – Any guesses on which side will win in the end?

‘Huge Malevolence Out There’: Feinstein Says We’re Not Safer from Terrorism Today – This sounds like a set-up…

===MISCELLANEOUS

Operation Blessings was Really Operation Blood Diamonds – Or how Pat Robertson took millions in donations and funded diamond mines in Africa.  Originally, this story was broke by Robertson’s hometown newspaper.  This writer covered some of the updates five or six years ago.  At that time, the pilots of the TV preachers’ airplanes admitted that they were flying machinery and supplies back and forth to his diamond mines–instead of the “medical supplies” Robertson was telling his TV audience who was sending in the donations.  If memory serves, the pilots testified that of 49 missions flown, only five or six had any relief supplies at all.

That story got squelched and there was no Corporate Media follow-up.  This spiking of that story proved more than anything that Pat Robertson was a protected part of the world system, not a “conservative Christian preacher of the gospel.”  Now, the Guardian (UK) is not only picking up that story, but has promoted a documentary about the sad affair.

A description of the documentary can be found here: Death, Diamonds and Greed.

Child taken from womb by social services – “Essex social services have obtained a court order against a woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and for her child to be taken from her womb by caesarean section.

‘Genderqueer’ rising: Colleges welcome a growing number of students who identify as neither male or female

Does prayer help us resist temptation? Talking to God boosts self-control and emotional stability, claims study – Most Christians will automatically assume that this is talking about Christian prayer.  Not necessarily.  The study was composed of “41 Christians, 14 atheists, 10 agnostic and 14 belonged to other religions.”

Just curious: who does an atheist pray to?  Himself?  It’s easy to see how that would work for so-called Christian TV preachers: many have proclaimed they are “little gods.”  What kind of prayer does an agnostic pray?  “Dear God, if you’re out there, hear me. If you’re not, I’m just kidding.”

Wave fingers, make faces: The future of computing at Intel – Chip maker Intel claims they are working on a chip that can sense emotions and read body language.

MARK OF THE BEAST
MARK OF THE BEAST

(AUDIO) John MacArthur: Take the Mark of the Beast and Still be Saved – This is what happens when teachings are distorted until few can remember what the Bible originally says.  Error begets error begets error begets error.  Eventually, one ends up with a teaching such as the one here.  But to get to this teaching, layer upon layer of false teachings had to be built on a foundation of twisted scripture.

It’s going to get worse–much worse.  MacArthur is not the first to say this.  The Left Behind series also had an instance of someone “being forced” into taking the mark–and later being saved.  There are so many fairy tales masquerading as Christianity.  Many are on display in this short five minute audio clip.

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
Revelation 14:9-11

Seems pretty clear, huh?  Unless you’re a 2013 American Christian, who is used to inventing “escape clauses” for every inconvenient Bible verse.  No vagueness, no waffling, no guessing: take the mark and drink of the wrath of God–forever.  Maybe John MacArthur will show up in defense of all who take the mark when God judges them?  Wonder who will win that debate?

“And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
2 Timothy 4:4

In the future, Christians will be buffeted by even more deception and false doctrine than they are now.  What’s the answer?

The Bible says one must have a “love of the truth“–not a “love of the convenient” or a “love of comfort” or a “love of what popular teachers teach.”  Our God is a loving One.  His Word will light your way.  Ask for wisdom; He is not stingy.

NOTE: His Word promises us wisdom (James 1:5), not popularity; not cutting edge coolness.

“For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.”
Ecclesiastes 1:18

Trinity Broadcasting Network founder Paul Crouch dead at 79 – TBN’s–which was labeled The Balaam Network by one commentator–Crouch goes to his final reward.

‘Humans evolved after a female chimpanzee mated with a pig’: Extraordinary claim made by American geneticist – Nazi and radical Islam propagandists sometimes made similar claims about the creation of Jews.

Study suggests inbreeding shaped course of early human evolution – The trouble with scientific-sounding fables is that occasionally, they contradict each other.

REPENT! and BE REFRESHED

THE GOSPEL:

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”
1 Corinthians 15:1-6

IF THE BIBLE WERE NOT THE TRUTH, THE WORLD WOULD NOT ATTACK IT.
THE WORLD WOULD EITHER PROMOTE IT OR IGNORE IT.

Unfortunately, in these last days, the world does not have to attack the word of God so very hard.  Most of the attacks on the Bible are now coming from within the walls of the church itself, at the hands of those who carry the label of “Christian.”

Tragically, so many sitting in the pews in Christian churches will be jumping on the beast train and riding it to perdition–all the while chatting on their iPhones, admiring their cool marks and patting each other on the back for being so loving, non-judgmental and full of tolerance.

Even so, Marantha!

Revival and Revivalism: A Review – Excellent review examining “revivalism,” a trend which entered the American Christian church during the mid- to late-1800s.  What is fascinating is that those who fought for biblical “revival”–which is something altogether different from revivalism–accurately predicted what would become of the American church if revivalism became the order of the day.  Unfortunately for the church, the forces of revivalism won.

Now it is almost 2014 and most American Christians are very familiar with revivalism and it’s sacred cows.  Very few are familiar with biblical revival.  Which is why pretend Christians proliferated–along with the methods used to manufacture them.

How can there be Revival without Repentance?

The new “revivals” don’t speak a whole lot about sin and the need for repentance.  The Benny Hinn Honolulu Miracle Crusade offered a model.  Lots of talk of power, anointing, the Spirit, God moving, miracles, angels, healings–even speaking with the dead.  Little talk of Jesus, even less of sin or why mankind would need a savior.  A savior from what?

Critical Thinking a Hallmark of Common Core class – This NPR article is complete and utter disinformation.

Common Core is public education slop distilled and bottled.  Will Common Core restore the lost art of critical thinking?  No.  Critical thinking is not part of Common Core curriculum.

Oh, “critical thinking skills” may be on the Common Core list, but all one has to do is look around.  Can the youth who have been subjected to a pre-Common Core public education engage in critical thinking?  Forget the youth: How many adults have critical thinking skills?

The game plan has been to destroy logic and critical thinking and the plan has succeeded beyond the educational drones‘ wildest dreams.  A mindless slave is a slave who is easier to control.  The educational establishment has been in the business of turning out programmable Deltas  for some time now.

Attempts to analyze Bible verses and their applications are simply beyond the capabilities of many these days. (Or rather, perhaps it’s the desire to analyze a Bible verse which is the problem.)  A population devoid of logic, critical thinking and other mental skills once considered basic to an education, is a population largely incapable of defending itself against error and deception.  It is also a population wide open to indoctrination.

Indoctrination is what replaces logic and critical thinking when those skills go out the window.

Indoctrination “is often distinguished from education by the fact that the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned.”

Some might trumpet, “I’ve got the Holy Ghost.  I don’t need no stinkin’ logic!

It is true: there is absolutely no substitute for spiritual discernment.  If one relies only on critical thinking or man’s logic, then those will not suffice.  Many have been deceived who were excellent critical thinkers or logicians.

Our enemy is defeated, but he is cunning and resourceful.  Any time we trust to our own power for spiritual matters, the outcome will be a disappointing one.

One must have spiritual discernment–and one must employ that discernment for it to do any good.

John 16:13  says the Holy Spirit will guide a  Christian into the truth. To guide presumes a willingness to be led. It doesn’t say anything about forcing the unwilling to the truth.  2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 warns that for those who receive not the love of the truth, “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”

Paul wasn’t writing this to pagans.  He was warning Christians in Thessalonica.

If that doesn’t make Christians in American just a tad uneasy, what will it take?

A “love of the truth.”

A “love of the truth” is critically examining what one has been taught to see if it lines up with the Bible.  In the last days apostate church, many popular teachings have largely escaped critical examination. Taken from books and other forms of the Christian mass media, they have become accepted and passed on as Bible verses once were.

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
Jeremiah 5:31

How else to explain the flood of “Christian” best-sellers that, upon closer examination, are more intent on indoctrinating Christians into “A New Thing” than reaffirming the Bible?  Christians pass along such books as The Circle Maker, The Shack, The Harbinger, How to be a Bad Christian and a Better Human Being, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and hundreds more like them.   (While searching for bad Christian books, I came across this article [Bad Christian Books: The Cause and the Cure].  Can the reader tell I heartily agree?)

Cults do not allow critical examination.  Repressive governments don’t have a “love of the truth.”

And in 2013 America, “a love of the truth” is in woefully short supply.

In these last days, the most convenient answer to “Where is it written?” seems to be “How dare you!”

The really sad part: if Christians don’t redeem their time and search the scriptures as the Bereans did, there will be someone at some point who will supply the “truth” for them.  The enemy isn’t shy about using Christian terms to describe activities associated with the antichrist spirit.

TWO QUOTES ABOUT THE COMING NEW AGE/NEW WORLD ORDER

“The planetary SMILE is another name for the Planetary Pentecost. When enough of us share a common thought of our oneness with God, Spirit will be poured out on all flesh paying attention.”
–Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Teachings from the Inner Christ

“… an UNCONTROLLABLE joy will ripple through the thinking layer of the earth…From within, all sensitive persons will feel the joy of the FORCE, flooding their systems with love and attraction.”
–New Age writer, Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Revelation

All deceptions are preparing for the Great Deception.

QUESTION:  How do we know ‘your’ Christ is who you say he is and how do we know he is not someone who is trying to obtain some form of powerful position in the world with the purpose of world domination?

BENJAMIN CREME:   This is a question often put to me by fundamentalist Christians. A tree is known by its fruit, and the Christ must be known by his words, his deeds, and, above all, his energy. If one man could achieve world domination (which, in today’s world, I very much doubt) then it could only be someone of the stature of the Christ. The fundamentalists, of course, are afraid that Maitreya might be the anti-christ, with which fallacy I have dealt many times, here and elsewhere. On the Day of Declaration, I submit, everyone — even the fundamentalists — will know, through the overshadowing of the minds of all humanity — a Pentecostal experience for all — that Maitreya is the Christ.”

Do you have a love of the truth?
