This document was originally written
in 2004, when Bush was still President.
You will see that much of what I predicted
back then has now come to pass regarding
the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan


Associated Press 5/29/2001:

"The Supreme said Tuesday it wouldn't hear a case involving display of the Ten Commandments-The court on Tuesday decided not to rule on the constitutionality of a Ten Commandments Display in front of the Elkhart, Ind., Municipal Building.  The court's action let stand a lower court ruling that the marker violated the constitutional boundaries between church and state."

"Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, in a dissent joined by Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, argued the case should have been accepted. He wrote that Elkhart's display had a secular as well as a religious purpose. By displaying the monument outside the building housing local courts and prosecutors, the city sought to reflect the cultural, historical and legal significance of the Commandments, Rehnquist wrote."

"Then he added: 'Indeed, a carving of Moses holding the Ten Commandments, surrounded by representations of other historical legal figures, adorns the frieze on the south wall of our [The Supreme Court's] courtroom'"

"'The carving signals respect, not for great proselytizers, but for great lawgivers,' Rehnquist wrote."
"[Justice] Stevens cried foul, writing that the silent majority in denials of petitions don't state member's reasoning. 'Even though the first two lines of the monuments text appear in significantly larger font than the remainder, they are ignored by the dissenters,' Stevens wrote. 'Those lines read 'THE TEN COMMANDMENTS-I AM the LORD thy God.'"

This was apparently more than Stevens and the majority of the Justices of the Supreme Court could tolerate in their idea of the separation of Church and State.

The case was originally brought to trial by the American Civil Liberties Union.

"Now there arose a new king over Egypt,
who did not know Joseph."
Exodus 1:8
"When in the course of human events" spoke the words of our Founding Fathers, "it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of nature and Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation."

"We hold these Truths to be self evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its powers in such Forms, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and happiness."

"Prudence, indeed will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes, and accordingly all Experience hath shown, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient suffering of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government . . .To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World":

(The previous section was quoted entirely from the original Declaration of Independence. The parts of the following that are from the Original Declaration are in blue text. Segments that are added to the original text are in RED italics or brackets. Since the abandonment of God by the Supreme Court in 2003 along with the lack of support from the White House for the religious rights of Christians the United States of America has gone from being a Christian country to one that has abandoned her Godly heritage. The line of demarcation has been crossed. The following is a list of grievances that compose the Declaration of Independence II against the liberal elite who govern American society as it exists today, to the Democratic Party who control the media and the educational institutions, and to all who oppose the Judeo-Christian framework upon which this country was founded, and is hopefully a wake up call to those comfortable, sleepy Christians and Patriots who have ears to hear to stand up for their rights. This is not a call to violent action or military arms in any way, but it is hoped that this will help to organize Christians into regional Committees of Correspondence in order to form a new Christian Continental Congress with elected representatives from all states in the union to establish a New Foundation to regain our lost freedoms and rights.)

"Nor have we been wanting in attention to our fellow countrymen [original text reads British Brethren]. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their Legislature to extend an unwarranted Jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the Circumstances of our Emigration and Settlement here [To establish a Christian nation and build a New Zion in the Wilderness]. We have appealed to their native Justice and Magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the Ties of our common Kindred to disavow these Usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our Connection and Correspondence. They too have been deaf to the Voice of Justice and Consanguinity. We must therefore, acquiesce in the Necessity which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of Mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends."

"We therefore, the REPRESENTATIVES of Patriotic Conservative Christians with faith in Almighty God of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA . . .appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the authority of the good People of Christian Faith [original read "these Colonies"] solemnly PUBLISH and DECLARE, That these Christians are, and of Right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT CITIZENS; that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the Liberal Public School System, the Atheistic and Humanistic agenda of the Liberals who dominate our learning institutions and media, the evolutionists who have defrauded our children and citizens for over a century with our own tax dollars, the sodomites and their apologists in the media who have persecuted moral and God fearing organizations and individuals who have taken a stand against their filthy practices, and from any Institution that actively prohibits the free rights of Christians to openly express their faith or that forces or intimidates Christians to accept into their private homes, privately owned businesses, private organizations or public institutions and events such as schools, patriotic festivals and public gatherings a lifestyle that is an abomination in the sight of Almighty God.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."
We are at present two nations, similar to the way our country was before the first Civil war. We have a nation of Christians and secularists; gay rights activists and those who see sodomy as a sin against nature and against nature's God; those who want to destroy innocent human life in the womb and those who see human life as sacred in all of it's stages; those who want to silence the voice of the church and any mention of God in public discourse and those who believe that the Bible is at the basis of all public morality; those who wish to enforce the dogma of evolution in public schools and will brook no questioning of their dogma, and those who see evolution as the fraud that it is and wish for the truth to be brought out of man's creation and destiny as taught in the Bible.
In early America we had committees of correspondence and that is what we need today. America is heading towards a civil war, although how far down the road this will occur nobody knows. We are in the early stages of it now. Clauswitz said that war is merely the extension of politics. Either this will take place or else Christians will continue to lose their rights and be marginalized until we live under a Stalin-like amoral government and have no effective voice in society.

There can be no reconciliation between these two camps without sacrificing those sacred principles which we hold so dear. They are diametrically opposed in their world view to ours-as opposite as the early American Colonists were to the British Monarch; as the abolitionists who wished to free the slaves before the Civil War were to the southern plantation owners; as the countries who lived and fought for freedom in the twentieth century were to the dark totalitarian governments of the communist and fascist dictatorships.
And mark my words,
the secularists at this point are winning.
Why? There are two reasons:
First, they have told us that we as conservative God-fearing Christians and Jews have no right to a voice in politics and education because of the fictitious separation of church and state, yet they insist on the right to introduce evolutionary dogma along with indoctrination into the perversion of sodomy into our public schools. They have told us we cannot have the Ten Commandments posted in our Public Squares while they have millions of dollars given in tax dollars to Planned Parenthood to slaughter babies; to Museums and College departments that enforce the lie of evolution and promote sodomy, that promote hatred of traditional Christianity and that indoctrinate students into Marxism; and they have gay pride marches down our city streets while we are told that to speak out against sodomy is a hate crime.
Secondly, they hold all of the power cards. They have a stranglehold on our nation's educational bureaucracies, or media, our museums, our major publishing houses, of our Democratic party machine and of much of our Republican party as well.
They also are aware of the struggle and have been actively engaged in pursuing their conquest of Judeo-Christian civilization. Christians and conservatives have been asleep at the wheel and in many cases are oblivious to the danger.
We are divided by traditions and petty squabbles and we need to unite and organize across denominational lines (with at least a common minimum belief in the Trinity, the blood of Christ for atonement and the inspiration of the Bible for Christians, thus I would oppose being unequally yoked with any cult, no matter how large, prestigious and prosperous such as Mormons, The Unification Church, muslims or other groups based on false revelations despite their proclamations of patriotism. Also, since Christianity had its roots in Judaism and is actually an offshoot of the Jewish faith I would see those of conservative views in the Hebrew tradition as our brothers and allies, they are still God's chosen people).

And pastors, asleep at the podium have got to take a stand and at the risk of losing their tax exempt status they need to speak out against what is going on.

The majority of people today, along with most Christians, are not aware of the severity of the crisis. We have our groceries on the table, we heard a good sermon on Sunday telling us that God loves us and that everything is okay. We have our sports entertainment and our movies to watch. We have been lulled to sleep by the comforts of popular culture. 
Today we have church leaders who are afraid to mention politics and politicians who are afraid to mention God.
Pastors were the voice of the conscience of the emerging nation in 1776 and they have failed in their task today. They are preaching comfortable messages and organizing bake sales while our freedoms are being whittled away. Their pretribulation rapture doctrine and easy believism has made them ineffective.
Is there a man of God out there with the courage of a Nathan Hale? Are there any men of God out there with the courage of the Founding Fathers? The Pastors preach pleasant sermons and refuse to preach of judgement and righteousness and the people love to have it so. And the Word of the Lord has become like a pleasant song to the members of the church, and yet they will not follow the Lord, or make mention of His righteousness, and His Word is in their ears, but it is far from their heart. And they claim to know the Lord, but they do not know the Lord, for they will not walk in His ways, or listen to His Spirit, or give glory to His Name. 
If things progress in the same manner that they have over the last thirty years, one day they will find themselves as the Russian Orthodox Church did on the eve of the Bolshevic Revolution, when their elders were holding a meeting trying to decide what the color of their church vestments should be.
Within 48 hours they were all dead, killed by the communists.
Three articles from The Instrument of Government, a landmark document in the establishment of constitutional law, instituted in 1653 in England under Cromwell when he assumed the position of Lord Protector over the realm, would do much to insure religious liberty in this land, and in fact I believe that they should be added to a revised version of our Constitution to insure the religious rights of Christians, with the added provision that these liberties would be ensured for Catholics as well. These three articles read:

XXXV. That the Christian religion, as contained in the Scriptures [no extra biblical cults are meant to be included], be held forth and recommended as the public profession of these nations [England, Ireland and Scotland]; and that, as soon as may be, a provision, less subject to scruple and contention, and more certain than the present, be made for the encouragement and maintenance of able and painful teachers, for the instructing [of] the people, and for discovery and confutation of error * (see note) , hereby, and whatever is contrary to sound doctrine; and until such provision be made, the present maintenance shall not be taken away or impeached.
XXXVI. That to the public profession held forth none shall be compelled by penalties or otherwise; but that endeavours be used to win them by sound doctrine and the example of a good conversation.
XXXVII. That such as profess faith in God by Jesus Christ (though differing in judgment from the doctrine, worship or discipline publicly held forth) shall not be restrained from, but shall be protected in, the profession of the faith and exercise of their religion; so as they abuse not this liberty to the civil injury of others and to the actual disturbance of the public peace on their parts: provided this liberty be not extended to ["Popery or Prelacy, etc . . ."; this part relating to the Papacy would not be included, Catholics would enjoy the full rights as other Orthodox Christians; this was inserted after a century of Protestant/Catholic wars that tore the Empire apart] nor to such as, under the profession of Christ, hold forth and practice licentiousness.
(Such a provision in Article XXXV, "for the instructing [of] the people, and for discovery and confutation of error" might be of invaluable aid to refuting the heresy of evolution, which is currently being taught and funded by federal money in universities and by government sponsored museums and media outlets; let the evolutionists have their say, let them have their day in court, but let it be balanced with the truth-Bible believing Christians pay taxes as well-with the evidence that exposes the fraudulent nature of their claims, since the only way that they can continue their charade is to have a monopoly on the educational and media outlets, with only one side presented, theirs. There should in fact be government sponsored national debates, for all to hear on nationwide television, with the creationist scientists on one side, and the evolutionists on the other, and then let the public decide which side has the truth, instead of the one sided indoctrination that most citizens receive in the media and educational institutions run by the evolutionists themselves. Our country has been hijacked by secular unbelievers who represent their erroneous opinions as though it is the truth, and patriotic Americans must take decisive steps to take America back.)

There should also be a change in the wording of the Constitution itself. The Founding Fathers, in their fear of being held hostage to a state sponsored church unwittingly left the door open for the progressives and liberals to literally run roughshod over the rights of Christians in this country during the late twentieth century, enacting repressive and unjust decrees denying freedom of religious expression that the Founding Fathers would never have wished or deemed possible. There is one remedy to this situation, one that had they forseen the repression of religious liberty taking place today in our country they might have instilled into the wording of the Constitution. Whether or not this would have been the case, the situation today has only one remedy if Christians are to enjoy the freedoms envisioned by our Father's when they founded this country.

The Constitution should be amended to read: "We the people, for the glory of Christ and His Kingdom, in order to form a more perfect union . . .". Only through such a provision may America be "born again" from being a secular country to becoming what she was meant to be, a Christian nation established for the glory of Christ Jesus and His Kingdom. America will either become a Christian nation that will tolerate other religions (but not all, those religions that have shown open hostility to the Christian faith in a historic and contemporary setting would not be tolerated, just as we do not tolerate bomb throwing anarchists), or America will become a totally secular nation that will at first tolerate and then eventually persecute Christians for their exclusivity regarding Christ's role in salvation, which is an offence to secularists. One of these two destinies awaits us.

Free and accessible health care for the poor and the destitute should also be a prerequisite in a just and compassionate society. How can you clamor for government aid for your businesses and money to have your roads paved and yet neglect the needs of those created in the image of God and for whom Christ came to serve and to die for?

The essential issue and the solution is simply this: there should be a distinction between the church and the state, but there should be no separation between Christianity and civil government; there should be a union between religion and the state, not any particular denomination, but it should have been understood that Christianity was the official religion of this country, with other religions being tolerated, but not endorsed.

We need to plan, to organize, to educate, and most of all to rely on God and on His aid.
The hour is late. The country is almost lost; in fact the old country that we once knew as the United States of America is for all practical purposes gone. The old foundations have crumbled. The ancient landmarks have been taken away. Only through laying a New Foundation can we hope to see righteousness established again.
America, that great nation, has fallen, has fallen and is become the habitat of demons, and a dwelling place for every foul spirit, and a stronghold for every unclean thing. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her excesses.
I do have one thing to ask of any citizen who is reading this who thinks that I may sound extremist:
Our forefathers were citizen soldiers who turned their plowshares and pruninghooks into swords and gave us this great nation at the risk of their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.
I want to ask of you one thing:

During the time of the American Revolution, if King George in England had assented to every one of the colonists' demands, had repealed all of the unjust taxes, had allowed them free and unrestricted trade and had withdrawn British troops from American homes, but had done two things:
1) Torn down any religious symbols in the public square and forbidden the Ten Commandments to be posted and forbidden children to pray in schools, and
2) Forcibly mandated that the colonists accept homosexuals in their churches, schools and their businesses,
then I ask of you my friend: What would George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Patrick Henry and the rest of the Founding Fathers have done?

We have only one course to follow, the course of patriotism, the course of duty.

In every great enterprise in history there have been those few with the vision and the determination to rise above the common crowd and to hearken to the voice of God, and to follow the path of duty, of righteousness, and of honor.
God bless you,

Then the Lord said to Moses
"Go in to Pharaoh and tell him,
'Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews:
'Let My people go, that they may serve Me.'"

Exodus 9:1

Let those of you who read this and love God, love liberty and love our country, conduct Jericho marches around town halls and city court buildings that have persecuted Christians, let us fight the ACLU, Americans for the Separation of Church and State, the SPLC and proclaim liberty across the nation, and Let Freedom Ring once again throughout this great land.


Addendum: On June 26, 2003 the Supreme Court of the United States of America legalized sodomy in our land while Americans did nothing to protest it and our government leaders sat by. On August 21, 2003, because Christians failed to do their duty, and because we did not have courageous leadership in the White House to stand for God's Word, the Ten Commandments were outlawed in the state of Alabama by the courts of this land while Americans did nothing to protest it and our government leaders sat by.

What follows is not a necessarily a prophetic utterance in the sense of "Thus saith the Lord". I do not claim to be a prophet.  I was not raised in a Christian family. I am a Christian who believes that Jesus Christ is Lord over the nations. For most of my life I have done humble work and have been in poor circumstances financially. I have received two inheritances years ago, one of which I gave nearly a third away to charity, possibly more, and the other I gave half to charity upon receiving it. I have no extensive theological training apart from the Word of God.
There may be certain men and women living today who have received prophecies from the Lord, however these people are very rare, mainly because most people are not willing to pay the price to fulfill the office of a prophet. A true prophet of the Lord will undergo much suffering, he or she will probably be rejected by the world and will face scorn, derision and persecution, even from Christians, or should I say especially from Christians. A true prophet will be tested in the fire and refined as silver is refined in the furnace, and he will not be living the lavish, comfortable lifestyle that we see among many self-proclaimed prophets among the Protestant denominations. 
Currently there are multitudes of false prophets in the world; they are chiefly found within the Pentecostal, Charismatic and Catholic denominations. These denominations are rampant with false declarations of "Thus saith the Lord" and of words from Mary when the Lord has not spoken by them and Mary has certainly not spoken to them.

Having made that disclaimer, here is what I do claim: God will raise up certain men who have what is known as a word of wisdom. He will reveal certain things to their hearts in order to warn, to rebuke, to chasten, and to encourage the church of God. Even though I believe that most genuine prophecy has ceased since the completion of the Book of Revelation, still, prophecies that were pronounced on nations in the Old Testament have moral and spiritual lessons for us today, and the same events that occured in the drama of those nations may occur today as well, and the fulfillment of His judgements and the prophecies in the Bible are yet being unfolded in the panorama of God's providential dealing with mankind: God is not the God of the dead, but of the living, and his judgements and statutes are from everlasting to everlasting. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Without repentance and righteousness and justice returning to our nation America will enter her time of demise. Like the nations of anitiquity, great Egypt and Babylon, who proudly resisted God's Word, the same scenario is now being acted out in the American political scene. America's judgement has commenced (This was originally written in 2004. Barack Obama was a fulfillment of that judgement, and a shadow of a future one if we do not fully return to the Lord). If she does not repent, she will hear the awful words from the Lord of hosts that were pronounced on other nations that had transgressed His Law:

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

When America legalized sodomy and outlawed the Ten Commandments in 2003 this was no light matter. It is a very serious matter for a nation to officially outlaw God's Law.
When the Ten Commandments were in danger of being taken away from public view in Alabama, the President of the United States should have sent down Federal troops to prevent this from happening, and he should have addressed the nation and reaffirmed our Christian heritage and told us of the necessity of honoring God in our public institutions.
This he failed to do.

When God calls a man, and raises him up to a position of great leadership, there is a great responsibility that goes along with this. If America's President (this was written when George W. Bush, the idiot heir to the Bush dynasty was in power) will continue to walk humbly before the Lord, and work to prevent the slaughter of the innocent unborn children, and stand against the wickedness of the sodomite assault on our culture, then the Lord will bless him in due season.
However, if he will not follow the counsel of the Lord, and if he will not support other righteous men for public office who reverence the Lord and who obey His statutes, but instead will justify the wicked, and make ungodly alliances (2 Chronicles 20:35-37), then the Lord will not honor him.

The second Bush administration appointed an openly homosexual man to be ambassador to the nation of Romania on September 21st, 2001. According to the Washington Post, which reported the story at the time, "Ambassador Michael Guest will be joined in Bucharest by his partner, Alex Nevarez, who was onstage at Guest's swearing-in and was verbally acknowledged by Secretary of State Colin Powell". The new ambassador then promptly moved into the diplomatic residence with his male "lover". Romanians were shocked and outraged by this appointment, since they have refused to change their strict anti-sodomy laws as a requirement to join the European Union.

James Antle wrote in the American Conservative (May 24, 2004) that the embassy in Romania is now being called the "pink embassy" and the "Bucharest bathhouse" He wrote that

A letter sent by a group of Romanian NGOs and individuals to President Bush and Secretary Powell in January named high-level appointees responsible for having "transformed the U.S. diplomatic addresses in to havens of debauchery," and further alleges that "(b)ased on reports and pornographic photos circulating around newspapers…" they "… use their privileged positions to corrupt young Romanians, paying them for sexual relations, by both cash and visas to the U.S." The signatories of this letter include the Union of War Veterans, the National League of December 1989 Combatants, and three former Romanian parliament members.

Dr. Patrick Johnston , family practice physician and founder of the Muskingum County Association of Pro-life Physicians noted

"On September 18, 2001, President Bush appointed a homosexual activist to be Ambassador to Romania at the protest of the Romanian government.  Furthermore, President Bush authorized a Clinton policy that allows an "unmarried partner" of a foreign aid worker to be given the same status as a married spouse.  So the ambassador's homosexual lover accompanies him to official government functions, travels with and resides with him on the taxpayers' tab.  On August 22, 2001, President Bush appointed an open homosexual to the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts.[16]  He presided over the appointment of another open homosexual to oversee the choice of civilian personnel at the Pentagon.[17]  The Bush administration posted a job for a "gay and lesbian program specialist" at the Department of Agriculture.  On November 1, 2001, President Bush appointed an open homosexual to the State Department as an arms control advisor, which was the first appointment of an openly gay person to a senior arms control post.  President Bush insisted that openly homosexual Congressman Jim Kolbe of Arizona be given a prominent speaking role at the Republican National Convention."[18],[19]  On January 25, 2002, President Bush appointed many openly gay Republicans to the President's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.[20] 

Why Christians Should Not Vote for Bush" By Patrick Johnston, D.O. (Last updated 9/04)

The executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee in charge of the Republican reelection effort in 2004 was a known homosexual. The Committee states that they do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.

The President threw his support behind a pro-homosexual, pro-abortion senate candidate who also opposed prayer in public schools over a Christian pro-life candidate in Pennsylvania who stood solidly for public morality in 2004. The man of God lost the election by a very narrow margin, thanks in large part to Mr. Bush's backing of the other candidate.

President Bush, if you or any of your advisers are reading this, there are three things you need to do so that the Lord may prosper you:

  1. You need to reaffirm America's Christian heritage, and cite case for case, quote for quote from our Founding Fathers the evidence for this. America is at a crossroads and you were chosen for this hour. You were chosen to lead the nation back to God. This was your calling, this was your reason for being elected, and you have foolishly listened to ungodly advisers and entered into a war ill prepared while the will of the people was divided.
  2. President Bush, you need to speak out against abortion and partial birth abortion. You need to articulate this clearly and concisely. You need to describe to the nation the horrors of this procedure and cite medical authorities who have said that this procedure is never justified for the health of the mother.
  3. President Bush, you need to speak out against sodomy and against the forces in this land seeking to legitimize this sin.

All laws, whether they have to do with rape or poverty or aid to senior citizens or the taking of human life, are laws of morality; all legislation has to do with right and wrong, all of law is based on morality, and if we don't use the Bible as our basis for morality, then whose definition of morality will we use?

Your politically correct advisers do not fear the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. There is no fear of God in their eyes President Bush, and you need to turn back to the Lord, and seek His counsel. Mark these words well: Even if President Bush wins a second term, if he will not stand up for the Lord's cause, then he will not prosper. Judgment is coming on this country if we do not return to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It has even already begun.

America, do not trust in the might of your military. Do not trust in your mighty institutions. Do not trust in your glory from the past. Trust not in your financial institutions. Give glory to the Lord God of Hosts. The time for your repentance is nearing an end. Seek His face. Do His commandments, return to your first love, before the fury of the Lord of Hosts burn your coasts as fire, and your heartland be devastated with pestilence and famine.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party openly endorses sodomy and advocates the slaughter of unborn children, even up to the moment of healthy, live birth.

Both major political parties are awash in corruption.

A slaughter of much greater proportions than what has happened in Iraq (this was written before the persecution and mass exodus of Christians in Iraq after George Bush's inept and blundering war) has been occuring in Sudan for years, and three U.S. Presidents have turned a blind eye to the sufferings of millions of Christians in that country who have been hunted down and massacred by muslims in a horrific genocide. Wealthy oil interests have been making profits with the Islamic government that rules that country and sponsers the terrorism.

I want to be very careful how I choose my words here, I want to write what the Lord wants me to write. These are serious times, these are the times "that try men's souls"; these recent court rulings will have historical, and in a spiritual sense eternal repercusions.

I do believe though that when these two events occured, the removal of the Ten Commandments and the legalization of sodomy, the United States of America crossed a line of demarcation - she has come to her own Kadesh Barnea and turned away from the Lord; she has in effect officially rejected God's Word and has chosen to legalize abomination; her sins have reached up to heaven, and nothing can forestall her impending judgement now; she has been given a time to repent since 9/11 and to turn back to God. Instead she has turned her back on God, and although I cannot say exactly how or when it will come, I do believe that there will be a period of steady decline from this time forth in our nation, followed by a final wrenching judgement, and when that judgement does come it shall be swift and sure, and shall not tarry, meaning that it will be in God's perfect timing. It was said of the nations whom Israel supplanted that they were allowed to continue to exist until their iniquity had reached it's fullness. America's cup is now nearly full, and when it reaches that mark of final apostasy, then the Lord's judgement will come on her.

Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man or a nation shall sow, that shall it reap. As the prophet Isaiah has said:

"Alas, sinful nation. A people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corrupters. They have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked to anger the Holy One of Israel, they have turned away backward."

Like some Philistine Goliath the liberals and the secular forces in this land are coming out challenging the Lord's army, sometimes with bullhorns, saying


And God is looking for MEN, for modern day Davids, modern day Gideons, modern day Joshuah's to stand up to this challenge. Instead we have a lazy, backslidden church reading a whole host of inane "Left Behind" books and "He's Coming Soon" books deceiving the people with false promises of peace and safety when the enemy is at the gates.
They have told us that the battle will soon be over and that the best that we can do is capitulate until the rapture happens, which they assure us will occur any minute now and save us from any conflict so that we can get out of here and avoid a good fight. And the pastors who should be leading the charge are cowering in their pre-tribulation foxholes while the enemy is spoiling for a fight. Even if the Lord's return is imminent according to Scripture, then it was also imminent in the year 1,000 A.D., and thank God for our sakes Christians didn't just sit on their hands back then, and if the Lord doesn't return until 10,000 A.D. His return will still be imminent, and what are we going to do in the meantime?
If Christians will do nothing to stand up for their freedom, then they do not deserve to keep it. While this disaster occured in Alabama and the Ten Commandments were removed, the Christian church in America barely blinked an eye as she uttered a collective burp of acquiescence while sitting back at her feeding trough.
The ACLU, American's For the Separation of Church and State, the Southern Poverty Law Center and other organizations that are deliberately usurping the religious liberties of Christian Americans and who are actively working to subvert the principles that this country was founded on should be outlawed.
I have a word from the Lord (from the Bible, nothing extra Biblical) for those pre-tribulational pastors and Christians who are hoping for some quick escape route to avoid their responsibility to disciple the nations:
"Woe to those who desire the Day of the Lord! For what good is the Day of the Lord to you? It will be darkness, and not light. It will be as though a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him! Or as though he went into his house and leaned his hand on the wall and a serpent bit him! Is not the Day of the Lord darkness and not light? Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it? I hate, I despise your feast days (your church barbeques while the world is going up in flames and children are starving in other parts of the world), and I do not savor your sacred assemblies (your hypocritical church gatherings in self congratulatory boasting, your "healing" and prophecy seminars, your white coated faith healers living like Croesus off of the offerings of widows). Though you offer Me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them, nor will I regard your fattened peace offerings. Take away from me the noise of your songs (your "contemporary" Christian music), for I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments (your praise and worship songs from unsanctified hearts). But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream." (Amos 5:18-24).

I do believe that there should have been a national period of true repentance and turning back to the Lord; but if that does not happen, America might someday hear "The harvest is passed, the summer is now ended, and we are not saved". I feel that, unless there is a genuine revival that changes the political and cultural atmosphere of this land, and this must be more than mere emotionalism; this should be a period of mourning, of fasting, perhaps even of wearing sackloth as a public display of humility and of warning, unless there is a genuine renewal to commitment to living a life of sacrifice, of obedience to the Word of God, then the plight of America is essentially hopeless at this point; all her pomp and splendour, all her military might, all of her wealth and prosperity, all of her knowledge cannot help her now, she has apostatised, she has despised the Lord and His statutes, only judgement awaits her now.

With a progressive lessening of the moral influence of the Law, America has lost her sense of purpose; the loss of her internal cohesiveness which the liberals have fought so long and hard to demolish will spell her doom. The judgement will come from within initially, as the Lord has said "The word that I have spoken will judge them"; thus the rejection of the light of God's truth will be her own sentence on herself, however there will undoubtedly be external influences; such as having her resources sapped by a long and costly war in some middle eastern sphere of the world, which will leave her vulnerable over the next few years to a possible military invasion from the far east, from China or North Korea or from an alliance of both, and there may also be some immediate catastrophes coming from foreign terrorists. After all, since we have officially outlawed the display of the Ten Commandments, we can no longer expect God to providentially protect our land as He has done for the past few centuries.

I can say one thing at this time, if I may be permitted by the Lord: The division will continue in our land, and it will only be settled through one side winning, and one side losing, while that question that rang through the congregation of ancient Israel still rings true today: "Who is on the Lord's side?"
It is time for a regime change in our land, and I am not referring to the typical Democrat/Republican circus that takes place every four years in our nation.

There must be a broad based non-violent citizen's resistance movement across this land against the liberal cultural elite in order to restore our lost rights and privileges as Christians in America. Pastors and Christian churches should unite in cities and towns all over this nation and circle courthouses where the ACLU has threatened to take down the Ten Commandments to protect them from being removed, with their own bodies if necessary. We should have public praise gatherings conducted in the public square, with Christian marches through the streets of our towns and cities.
We must seek the Lord in repentance for our sins with prayer and fasting, according to the pattern set in 2 Chronicles 20. Pastors of churches and entire denominations should declare a season of solemn fasts for their congregations. Christians need to repent of their selfish lifestyles, and seek justice for the oppressed, and remember mercy for the poor, to give aid to those who are bowed down, to clothe the naked, to house the homeless, to strengthen those who are weak and afflicted, and to confirm the feeble knees, then perhaps the Lord will smile on us again. and the Lord Himself will deliver us from our enemies.
This is not something for sunshine patriots. This is first a spiritual battle, but if we continue to seek the Lord, and keep His statutes and His commandments while there is still time to repent, then perhaps He will relent of His great displeasure, or at least leave a blessing for a remnant in the land and protect those who have sought Him with their whole heart when the judgement does come on this nation.
God is currently marking those who are seeking Him with their whole heart and who are truly serving Him, and separating them from the hypocrites and unbelievers, and when the judgement of war, and famine, and pestilence does come they may be spared in the day of His anger. Now is the time to seek refuge, now is the time to build your spiritual house, for when the judgement comes, those who have not prepared their hearts and put their lives in order will not be able to stand. If you have not been able to stand for the Lord in a time of peace, how will you stand during the swelling of the Jordan? And woe to those false pastors who say to their congregations "Where is the God of judgement?" Woe to those who have preached a false peace, who have said "You will not see evil, neither shall any trouble come upon us". Woe to those pastors who have not prepared their flock. Woe to those whited sepulchres who have said "It is vain to serve the Lord", and that the Lord has pleasure in unrighteousness, for we shall all stand before the judgement seat of the Lord, to answer to Him what we have done in our bodies.
It says in the word of God that a threefold cord is not easily broken. There are three things that Christians need to do in this spiritual battle. We need to pray fervently, we need to fast and we need to sacrifice some of our idols and give to charity (Psalm 41:1). We need Gods intervention above all, and when the children of Israel called out to God in the midst of their Egyptian bondage, He heard them.

This is the kind of patriotism that we need if America is to survive; we need real men in the pulpit and in the pews who will stand up for their liberty the way our forefathers did; not the wimpy, namby-pamby, wishy washy pre-tribulational milktoast lukewarm once-saved-always-saved Calvinism that lulls most of the protestant churches to sleep every Sunday.
Once righteousness is restored in this land and Christians have taken the realm back from the evil liberals (yes, there are evil people in this world besides the commonly identified variety of criminals and terrorists; slaughtering innocent, unborn babies is evil and those who advocate this are evil; enforcing the perversion of sodomy is evil and persecuting the Boy Scouts because they have refused to allow this abhorrent lifestyle to infect their ranks is evil; forcing the removal of the Ten Commandments from public view is evil and those who have striven to enforce this tyrannical oppression of religious rights are evil, and although I do not advocate taking the law of punitive retribution into our own hands, either individually or in mass gatherings, I do believe that unrighteous laws should not be obeyed, and peaceful, non-violent civil resistance could and should be our recourse, and that governments sometimes have to be changed when they abrogate the rights of the people, and sometimes these changes involve a physical struggle), then Christianity will officially be the national religion, and this will be put into legal code and displayed in the offices of the highest courts of our land.
Now, what I am about to say is not written in stone; but God's judgements are from everlasting to everlasting, and no nation can with impunity scorn His law and not suffer the consequences. As Pharaoh was given the opportunity ten times to repent and release the children of Israel, so America will experience a succession of judgements, and at each point she will have an opportunity to repent and return to the Lord, until the final judgement when her cup of iniquity shall be full.

The Bible states when you shall see the abomination of desolation standing in the Holy Place where it ought not, then the end is near. Many Christians understand this to mean the anti-christ standing in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. There is another understanding of this though.
In Christianity, the Church is God's temple, and the most Holy Place, the most sacred place where God's Presence is understood to dwell is the table where Holy Communion is celebrated, where the Body and Blood of the Lord is presented to the faithful in Christ. The Scripture says that this is our alter, of which those who still offer animal sacrifices in the Levitical priesthood have no right to eat (Hebrews 13:10).
This then is the alter of the New Testament, the Lord's Supper. God's temple is the body of believers who have the Holy Spirit indwelling in them. We are told that when the abomination of desolation stands in this place, where it ought not, then we are to prepare to flee for safety.
What could this abomination of desolation be? There are only a few things mentioned in the Bible that are called abominations. The Scripture says that this will be something "standing where it ought not". It would be something or someone that will stand to represent the Lord, but will be so detestable that it will be called an abomination. This would be some terrible wickedness standing in God's stead. Has this happened today?
When the Episcopal Church appointed an openly declared homosexual to the position of bishop, I believe this prophecy was in part fulfilled. In this case, the abomination would not necessarily be the political beast power itself, but it would be a sign warning us that soon "then shall that wicked appear". There may be a dual future fulfillment of this with the anti-christ in Jerusalem in some rebuilt Jewish temple, although the partial fulfillment of this prophecy has clearly happened today with the abomination of a sodomite being allowed to represent Christ in the Holy Supper.
The Scripture says that the abomination would stand "where it ought not", meaning that it will be a person so detestable, so vile, that it would not even be referred to in the normal human way, or even given a masculine gender.
Scripture says "When you shall see the abomination of desolation", meaning that this will be an event that will be witnessed by the entire world. The whole Christian church will be aware of this. That is what has happened. That sign was a warning, and just as the Jews of the first century were warned to flee Jerusalem for persecution would surely follow, so those Christians living in the New Jerusalem, the New Testament Church, have been warned that the beginning of persecution will follow soon on the heels of this event.
This, along with the sodomite Catholic priests who have been allowed to celebrate communion and were not removed from their positions, and those sodomites, false prophets and false shepherds in other denominations who have committed sacrilege have fulfilled this prophecy. Thus the abomination of desolation would be when the leaders in the modern day temple, the Christian Church, apostatise in a very serious and deliberate way. 

The Catholic church has been in a state of apostasy regarding the theory of evolution, which her leaders have erroneously embraced, for many years, and for this and many other errors there has been a manifestation of terrible sin within her.

Do not say to yourselves "We have Simon Peter for our father", for I am saying to you that God is able from the very stones of the earth to raise up children for Simon Peter. The Catholic church has entered this millennium with much pomp and ceremony and splendor, however if she does not repent of her errors, God will take away her candlestick before the end of the millennium.

Pope John Paul II was one of the greatest men of the twentieth century. Rising from obscurity in his native land of Poland, he lost his mother and brother at an early age and his father died before his twenty first birthday. He risked his life during World War Two while studying for the priesthood when nearly one third of the clergy were killed by the Nazis. He has been a great voice for freedom, justice, the sanctity of marriage and the sanctity of life. He is perhaps the man most responsible for the collapse of communism in eastern Europe during the latter part of the twentieth century.

Unfortunately during the reign of his Papacy he has also made some ill informed statements on evolution. In 1996 he said that he believed that evolution was "more than a hypothesis", in other words, he believed that it had some scientific validity. (Where is the frenzied outcry from the liberals and the evolutionists that we should not be mixing science and religion now?). Aside from the lack of scientific evidence for evolution, from a purely theological viewpoint the Pope should certainly have realized that if evolution were "God's method" for creating mankind, and consequently if humans evolved from apes or apelike ancestors, then this would mean that the Lord Himself, at least by implication if evolution were true, was descended through his mother's ancestry, from apes, and that the Virgin Mary, the mother of the promised Messiah, whom Christians highly honor, was not much more than a "highly evolved", immaculately conceived member of the ape family herself, if man is truly descended from apes that is. 

Apparently, near the same time (October 22, 1996) that the Pope made this statement, a certain Harvard paleontologist, the late and lamented Gould, was skulking around Europe and Rome, insinuating himself into the confidence of various liberal members of the clergy of the Catholic Church, and although I can't say that he headed up or was involved in a campaign to persuade this leader to make some kind of statement that would supposedly agree with what is called science, but what St. Paul called "science falsely so called," it is possibly more than coincidence that the visiting professor was ingratiating himself (rather shamelessly, since Gould made no attempt to hide his distaste for the Christian religion throughout most of his life) with certain more liberal clergy at the same period of time that the Pope made his statement on evolution.

Perhaps from debilitation and age the Pontiff, after some shrewd and subtle diplomatic tactics from the evolutionists, consented to say something on this issue to appease them. At any rate, even though his intentions were undoubtedly good, it is a great tragedy that he made this statement. In effect he gave much ammunition to the enemies of Christ, and has seriously damaged the cause of Christianity with this statement.

I believe, as the Scripture has said, that Mary is most blessed among women. I do not, however, believe that Mary or our Lord Jesus were descended from apes, and I am simply pointing out the inconsistency of the theory of evolution with a traditional Christian view of our Lord and of His mother.

Apart from the fact that Darwin himself never demonstrated any really good evidence for evolution ever occurring, one would also have to believe, if man is continually evolving and improving through evolution, and did not fall from a state of original perfection and sinlessness, thus if death was not the penalty for sin, since men had been dying for thousands of years before Adam, then the Lords sacrificial death on the cross would have less meaning.

In fact, if by a purely naturalistic process of evolution we are progressing to better and smarter types of species continually, then the fall of man did not occur at all, since all of Adam and Eve's descendants would be more evolved than they were. And if evolution has been continuing up to the present day, then present day humans would be more highly evolved than Abraham; Isaac; Jacob; Moses; David; Joshua; Isaiah; the Apostles who wrote the New Testament, or any of the men who wrote the Bible itself! This is of course, at least from a Christian point of view, simply plain, old fashioned heterodoxy.

This was an unfortunate testimony in the life of one of the greatest men of the twentieth century who had led an illustrious career in service to Christ. This was the result of attempting to appease those who hold views antithetical to the Christian faith. And appeasing the enemies of Christianity will never win converts.

His statement on evolution was not the first concession he made to those of other beliefs. In a misguided attempt to bring reconciliation among the different religions of the world, in 1986 Pope John Paul II convened a summit of religious leaders from different faiths to worship together in Assisi, Italy. While the Pope stood in the midst of a chanting assembly of Buddhists, Hindus, muslims, snake worshippers and voodoo priests, he allowed a statue of Buddha to be placed on top of the Tabernacle of Offering, the alter where the communion Host is kept, the body and blood of Christ.

He allowed a pagan god to be elevated above the true God of Israel.
He broke the first two commandments of the Decalogue.

Once someone begins departing from the faith, unless they repent, things can only go from a bad state to a worse one. And thus it was in the life of the Pontiff. On May 4, 1999 the Pope actually held and kissed the Koran in the presence of several muslim officials from Iraq and the late Chaldean Catholic Patriarch, Raphael I Bidawid. This horrendously misguided attempt to placate the followers of Islam actually drew gasps from some of the Catholics in attendance.
This was an act of apostasy. This was a betrayal of his faith.
The Pope sat in the chair of St. Peter, who was martyred for his faith. If Islam had existed during St. Peter's life, would he have kissed the Koran? I would say not, even at the point of a sword. St. Peter suffered chains and beatings and imprisonment for his faith. He would have fearlessly preached Christ in the muslim lands, and willingly given his life for this testimony, as millions of Christians already have sacrificed their lives for their faith to the bloody sword of Islam in Africa and the middle east and the far east over the past thirteen centuries.
Update 2013: Since Pope John Paul II committed this grave act of sacrilege to appease Iraqi muslums in 1999, over 2/3 of Iraqi Christians, that's at least 500,000, have fled muslim persecution in their native homeland. (Here is a New York Times article from 2010 that further documents the Iraqi Christian's plight). Millions of Christians in Africa have also been slain by the bloody sword of Islam during the reign of this Pope who kissed the Koran. St Peter or St Paul bowing down and kissing Nero's ring to express "solidarity" with him in front of the Roman senate could not have been any worse than what John Paul II did.

The Koran is not a Holy Book. It is not on a par with the Bible. It is not the Word of God. It is the recorded words of a raving maniac, probably demon possessed, who raped, pillaged, killed and led a band of robbers who slaughtered entire villages of Jews and Christians in the middle east during his life.
The late Pope was a great champion for human rights, and the dignity of life, and the sanctity of marriage, however when he began to make compromises with those of pagan beliefs the consequences only grew worse over a period of time. He started out well, but in the end he compromised his office and his faith.

I am not attempting to denigrate the faith of wonderful, sincere and godly Christians here. I am sure the Pontiff was a good man, a sincere man, a humble man, and a loving and kind man, however, we need to follow Scripture as assiduously as possible in our faith, in our doctrine, in our practice as Christians. We have to measure everything by Scripture.
The Pope was known as a man of mercy, but mercy needs to be balanced with truth. It has been said that the Pope prayed for four hours a day stretched out on a cold marble slab. This would be commendable, however we need to ask ourselves, who was the Pope praying to?

When Pope John Paul II was struck by an assassin's bullet in 1981 and nearly died, "Totus tuus" became his life's motto. He consecrated his life to someone with that phrase. "Totus tuus" is Latin for "It's all yours", or "It all belongs to you". When he was on his deathbed he again consecrated his life to that person. One would suppose that he had consecrated his life into God's hands, but it wasn't Jesus whom he gave his life to. It was Mary. She was the one he gave his soul to.

Search the gospels, search the book of Acts, search any of the epistles, and you will not find anything, anywhere where our Lord or any of the apostles said a word about praying to Mary- nothing, not in the entire Bible. Surely if this was a standard part of the Christian message Paul would have written about it. Surely our Lord would have said something about it. But there's nothing about it in the word of God. There is though a mysterious warning from the book of Jeremiah to apostate Jews who had been praying to a false deity, known as the Queen of heaven. Catholics have crowned Mary as the Queen of heaven and made her a co-intercessor with her Son, Jesus. What do we read in Jeremiah about this? We find in Jeremiah this warning:

16 "Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you. 17 Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger. 19 Do they provoke Me to anger?" says the Lord. "Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?" 20 Therefore thus says the Lord God: "Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place--on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched." Jeremiah 7:16-20

15 Then all the men who knew that their wives had burned incense to other gods, with all the women who stood by, a great multitude, and all the people who dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying: 16 "As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! 17 But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, were well-off, and saw no trouble. 18 But since we stopped burning incense to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine." 19 The women also said, "And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make cakes for her, to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her without our husbands' permission?" Jeremiah 44:15-19

20 Then Jeremiah spoke to all the people--the men, the women, and all the people who had given him that answer--saying: 21 "The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the Lord remember them, and did it not come into His mind? 22 So the Lord could no longer bear it, because of the evil of your doings and because of the abominations which you committed. Therefore your land is a desolation, an astonishment, a curse, and without an inhabitant, as it is this day. 23 Because you have burned incense and because you have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord or walked in His law, in His statutes or in His testimonies, therefore this calamity has happened to you, as at this day." 24 Moreover Jeremiah said to all the people and to all the women, "Hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who are in the land of Egypt! 25 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying: 'You and your wives have spoken with your mouths and fulfilled with your hands, saying, "We will surely keep our vows that we have made, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her." You will surely keep your vows and perform your vows!' 26 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt: 'Behold, I have sworn by My great name,' says the Lord, 'that My name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, "The Lord God lives." 27 Behold, I will watch over them for adversity and not for good. And all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by famine, until there is an end to them. 28 Yet a small number who escape the sword shall return from the land of Egypt to the land of Judah; and all the remnant of Judah, who have gone to the land of Egypt to dwell there, shall know whose words will stand, Mine or theirs. Jeremiah 44:20-30

I believe this fundamental and crucial error in theology and faith led the Pope over the years to make some of the disastrous and tragic decisions regarding the role of Christianity in relation to other religions.
When the Pope violated the first commandment of our Lord, to have Him and Him alone as our Lord and as the agent of our salvation, when he broke the first commandment of the Decalogue, then this led to his further disastrous decisions in making accomodation to pagan gods, gods who were not the one true God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Our Lord told His disciples that He would send them the Holy Spirit, that those who believe on Him and follow Him would receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. Our Lord told the disciples that the Holy Spirit would lead them into all truth. The theory of evolution is not true. When the Pope made his statement on evolution, he was not being led by the Holy Spirit, but by the false ideology of man. It was not the Holy Spirit that led the Pope to kiss the Koran.

The late Pope has been heralded as the great unifier of the world's religions. During his reign the Vatican said to the Jews that conversion is not necessary for salvation. This is in direct contradiction to the word of God, that says unless we be converted, both Jew and gentile, we cannot be saved, however God has given the Jewish nation hope, a hope that was denied by John Paul when he whitewashed the gospel of salvation. Here is what the first Peter had to say to the Jews:

14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. 16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. 17 Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, F14 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. 22 For Moses truly said to the fathers, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.' F15 24 Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow, as many as have spoken, have also foretold F16 these days. 25 You are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, 'And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.' F17 26 To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities." Acts 3:12-26

This is the hope for the Jews, this is the hope for all of mankind, that they would turn to their messiah, Jesus, and be converted, and be saved. Peter was not condemning the Jews, but offering to them the olive branch of peace from the Lord, for he said

"I know that you did it in ignorance, as did your rulers . . . repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord".

God has made his peace offering to us, both Jew and gentile, with the sacrifice of His Son Jesus. If anyone refuses this offer, then it is not God's fault, but their own for they have freely chosen their destiny, and rejected God's provision. However we must bear in mind our great indebtedness to the nation of Israel, to the rich cultural heritage from the Jewish nation, for the Law and the Prophets, our Lord and all the Apostles sprang from Israel, from the loins of Jacob, and God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance, for the gospel was preached to the Jew first, and then to the gentile, as it is written:

"1 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, 3 "Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life"? F52 4 But what does the divine response say to him? "I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." F53 5 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. F54 But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. 7 What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 Just as it is written: "God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see And ears that they should not hear, To this very day." F55 9 And David says: "Let their table become a snare and a trap, A stumbling block and a recompense to them. 10 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see, And bow down their back always." F56 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! 13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in." 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, F57 if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, F58 as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; 27 For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins." F59 28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all."
(Rom 11:1-32)

God is still reaching out to Israel after the flesh, the apple of God's eye, for the promises of God are without repentance.

The book of Revelation compares physical Jerusalem with Sodom and Egypt spiritually (Rev 11:8 "where also our Lord was crucified"; although He was crucified outside the gates of the City to fulfill prophecy, our Lord Himself has already pronounced physical Jerusalem desolate when the Jews rejected Him at his first coming; Matt 23:38; Luke 13:35. When the Lord does come back he will rule from Jerusalem and it will again be the Holy City. Perhaps at that time a new temple will be rebuilt.
The leaders of the early first century Christian church were nearly all Jewish; our Lord, the Apostles,  most of the writers of the New Testament, and during the last days immediately prior to the coming of the Lord the leaders of the remnant Christian church of true believers, as opposed to the false harlot church, will again be Jewish, they will be Messianic Jews who have accepted Christ. At present the rulers of physical Zion are still unbelievers - they have still not accepted their Messiah - I speak as a Christian of Jewish ancestry who prays for the remnant of Israel - but when another, antichrist, shall come in his own name, him they will receive). The temple of God where the abomination would be in the last days would not be another Jewish temple though. We have our eyes in the wrong place; we are watching the middle east for the anti-christ, when the temple that will be desecrated in the last days is the apostate Christian church.

We are entering the time of "Jacob's Trouble", a time of trial when great tribulation will come on all those who profess the name of Jesus Christ. Those who believe in the false pre-tribulation rapture will be totally unprepared for this, just as the unbelievers were unprepared before the time of the Flood of Noah. The church in America will not be spared this tribulation, however those who live for the Lord and follow Him with their whole heart will be protected in a special way. This does not mean that there will not be persecution for them, however the Lord will strengthen them, and guide them, and anoint them to be witnesses for Him, and many of them will be spared the great plagues that are coming upon all of mankind. The Lord will guide them to "cities of refuge" where they can find safety and security from the wrath to come after the tribulation has purified the saints. America is the last bastion of protection for Christianity, and when America falls, then the persecution will begin.

I can say this: America is now ripe for judgement. Her armed forces are stretched thin on two fronts on the opposite side of the world. She has recently removed many of her troops from South Korea to send to the Arab conflict. Her own borders are now vulnerable and she does not have the armed strength to protect herself at home should a foreign power move against her.

Take heed to these words, for the time may be near: When the north shall attack the south in the land of the morning calm, and the land of the dragon shall move against the island to the east, America will be unable to respond; then the bear from the land of Russ will see it and torment the harlot with fire.

I am not advocating selling everything that you have and running off into the mountains. If the Lord speaks to you to do this, fine, but just be sure it is really the Lord speaking to you, and not your own imagination. I do have one word of advice for someone who is asking how to escape these things. Commit your way to Jesus Christ, and remember justice, and mercy: "Blessed is he who cares for the poor, the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be blessed upon the earth" (Psalm 41:1-2). The sin of America is pride, haughtiness, adultery and covetousness. Give to the poor, give to charity, give of your substance to those in need, both in this nation and especially on other nations where children are suffering from hunger and want, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased (Hebrews 13:16). When you remember the fatherless and the widow, and seek good and not evil, then perhaps you will be spared from the wrath to come.
Regarding the war with Islam, what we have in the world at this time is a clash of civilizations, a clash of worldviews, and one side must prevail. And even though there are those who are called "moderate" muslims, nevertheless the muslims who are of the extremist brand are simply those muslims who have read their Koran and have taken it's bloody precepts to heart! It is the leading clerics in the muslim world who are proclaiming the call to jihad, these are not the fringe elements of their faith who are initiating this war!
This is the main difference between the Islamic fanatics and those fringe groups of Christians who bomb buildings and shoot abortion doctors-they are the fringe element of Christianity, they are not the mainstream leaders of the major Christian movements, but those in the Islamist camp who are calling for the slaughter of the infidels are the leaders of the mainstream movements of the muslim faith! When the liberals and the dominant western media lump all "fundamentalists" together in one big bag, making no distinction as to whether they are Christian or Islamic, this is a slanderous calumny of the gravest proportions; to lump a Christian who takes their faith seriously with a muslim who takes their faith seriously would be to put Mother Teresa and Osama Bin Laden in the same camp, nevertheless that is what the liberals and their toadies in academia have done when they have besmirched Christians with their propaganda.
This is the crucial difference, and whether we like it or not, we are in a war for our culture, for our way of life, for those grand institutions of civil and religious liberty that we take for granted and that are the foundations of our heritage of lawful freedom to worship and to choose our system of government. This is in fact a war that began centuries ago, and despite what has been taught in our history books, the Crusades were a defensive war being fought against Islamic fanatics who wanted to turn Europe into an Islamic state, and they had already conquered the entire middle east with the sword and had made their way all the way to Vienna, and they occupied Spain for many centuries. Were it not for the crusaders turning the muslim hoards back, all the women in Europe would be wearing burkas and we would be under the muslim rule of shariah.

Whatever the reason for our entering the war in Iraq, we must win this war, and we must win it decisively. Sun Tzu said rightly that there has never been a prolonged military campaign that has ended profitably.

America will be given a series of chances to repent and return to God, and at each one of these crossroads a further judgement will commence if she refuses to return to God. Ask not for whom the bell tolls America, it tolls for thee.
God is saying to you, America, just as the Lord said to Jerusalem two thousand years ago, "How oft would I have gathered you under me, as a hen gathers her chicks, but you would not".
God is using the world scene to judge America. At every juncture that America turns against God, she will suffer a further consequence of this in her international and domestic affairs.

God did raise up George Bush to lead America at this time. However just as there were certain kings of Israel who were chosen by God and then later lost their place due to disobedience, so there are three things that George Bush must do if he is to prosper, whether or not he wins the election. If he will stand for Christian and Godly principles again, stand firmly against abortion and stand against the assault of the sodomites, then the Lord will prosper him. However even if he were to win the election, if he will not stand for Godly principles, he will not prosper.

On February 18, 2002 George W. Bush became the first American President to worship a pagan god in public office. He and his wife both bowed before the Meiji Shinto Shrine, alienating both the Korean and Japanese Christian communities. After they bowed to this demon shrine and clapped their hands to awaken him, they entered their signatures into the book of those who have worshipped at the Shrine. The Japanese Premier, Junichiro Koizumi, did not join the Bushes in worship because the Japanese Constitution has set up a wall of separation between temple and state. The Japanese Constitution forbids heads of state to participate in Shinto worship since it was that religion that motivated the Pearl Harbor attack and the horrendous carnage inflicted by the Japanese on their Chinese, Burmese, and South Asian neighbors, as reported by the Japan Times after the event. 

Japanese and Korean Christians who refused to worship the demon-spirit at Shinto shrines were put to death during WW II. George Bush, a professed Christian, has tread on the blood of those martyrs who refused to bow before a heathen idol.

In his second inaugural address he praised Islam and mentioned the Koran but he did not mention the Holy Bible.

President George W. Bush, a professed Christian, has done more for the spread of Islam than he has done for Christianity. Under President Bush's initiative the United States has spent billions of dollars to set up the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the new Republic of Iraq, both based on Islamic Law, while we have sat by and done nothing as hundreds of thousands of Christians were slaughtered by a militant muslim government in Sudan .

During President Bush's term of office the Ten Commandments were removed from a courthouse in Alabama. During President Bush's term in office Terri Schiavo was allowed to starve to death.

In 2004 Christian chaplains in the United States armed forces were forbidden to publicly pray in Jesus' name. While he has publicly praised the bloodthirsty religion of Islam as a "peaceful religion", President Bush has done nothing to remedy this breach of our religious liberties, nor has Donald Rumsfeld nor has anyone else in the Bush administration done anything about it.

After a hard fought battle to take the city of Fallujah in April of 2004 our marines were ordered back just when victory was in our grasp so that we would not appear to be insensitive to the muslim inhabitants of the city. Within days the city was back in the hands of the terrorists. We have repeatedly allowed a terrorist muslim sheik responsible for American deaths in Iraq to slip out of our hands so that we would not appear to be intolerant of his faith!

President Bush became the first President in office to worship with muslims at a mosque. Within a week after 3,000 innocent Americans were killed in the 9/11 attacks by muslim terrorists, President Bush was bowing and scraping before the muslim leaders in this country when he went to the Islamic Center in Washington D.C. and stated: "The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam", as he was escorted by Islamic clerics, "Islam is peace". No less than seventeen times over the next year and a half he proclaimed Islam as a peaceful religion . He said on December 5, 2002, "Islam brings hope and comfort to more than a billion peole worldwide . . . Islam affirms God's justice and insists on man's moral responsibility . . . Islam gave birth to a rich civilization of learning that has benefited mankind"

Of the six great genocides in the twentieth century, Hitler's holocaust of the Jews, Stalin's slaughter of twenty to thirty million people in the Soviet Union in the thirties and forties in the name of atheistic communism, China's purges when hundreds of millions of people were put to death throughout the mid and late twentieth century in the name of atheistic communism, Pol Pot's slaughter of millions in southeast Asia in the name of atheistic communism after the United States pulled out of Southeast Asia, the Armenian genocide by the Turks in the early part of the twentieth century, and the slaughter of millions of Christians in Sudan in the latter part of the twentieth century, two of the six genocides were done in the name of Islam, by followers of Mohammed, and the last one is still going on; Christians are being slaughtered in Africa and being persecuted in Indonesia by muslims, and in Saudi Arabia you will be thrown into prison for bringing a Bible into that country or for sharing faith in Christ; all this while President Bush sings out the praises of Islam.

You don't start a war you are not determined to win, and the first thing you must do is identify the enemy and have him in your sites. You don't engage in a fight with some murderous thugs and then turn around and say "You know, you guys aren't such a bad bunch of fellows after all. We've got more in common than I thought".
It is not "radical" Islam that is the enemy. The enemy is Islam.
The only reason we have peaceful and moderate muslims in the United States is because they are not a sizeable part of the population. There are no moderate muslims in Saudi Arabia. There are no moderate muslims in Afghanistan. There are no moderate muslims in Pakistan. If you live in one of those countries and decide "You know, I think I'm going to go out for lunch today" during the month of Ramadan, or decide to go bowling instead of going to the mosque on Friday you can wind up in prison. Women in those countries can be beaten for making too much noise. Moderate muslims in those countries who might equate Islam with Christianity or some other religion can be shot!

Meanwhile our President blabbers on about Islam being a peaceful religion.

You cannot fight against a dangerous enemy with one hand shackled behind your back. We should have learned this lesson decades ago in Vietnam, but apparently the politically correct managers of the war in the Pentagon and the State department have not learned that lesson. Islam is a rogue religion and those Islamic leaders in the middle east and the far east have no legitimacy before God to rule over their countries.

Whether or not it was the right decision to go to war in Iraq, now that we are there, we must win it, and we must win it decisively, and you do not win a war through political correctness. Many of the bureaucrats in the state department graduated from colleges where the professors were marxists and atheists, and where America was pilloried in the classrooms as responsible for most of the crimes in the world over the past two hundred years, responsible for the repression of blacks and other minorities, imperialistic and greedy, in other words, America was portrayed in much the same way that Islam portrays America, as the "great satan".
Thus many of those working in the state department itself would have questionable loyalty to the foundational ideals of our country.

America had a policy of prohibiting American troops who were putting their lives on the line in Iraq from receiving Christian literature and Bibles in the mail lest we offend the indigenous muslim population, while the muslim prisoners at Guantanamo Bay prison were freely given Korans, muslim prayer beads, and muslim prayer blankets courtesy of the U.S. government! General Boykin was forced by his superiors to publicly apologise over a speech he made while off duty to a private church audience in the United States regarding the differences between Christianity and Islam !

In November 2004 the Pentagon instructed all military bases in the United States and throughout the world not to sponsor Boy Scout meetings any more. Why? The Boy Scouts must take an oath to honor God and country, and the ACLU threatened the military with a lawsuit unless they withdrew support for the Boy Scouts, claiming a violation of the non-existent clause of separation of Church and state. The Pentagon lawyers backed down from the ACLU with barely a whimper of protest. Where were you Don Rumsfeld, where were you President Bush when the Scouts needed your help? If we will not honor God, then He will not honor us. With every transgression against God, with every chance to repent and turn back to God that we turn away from, America will suffer a further judgement.

The insanity persists when we allow muslims to serve in our armed forces in the war against terrorism. This would be equivalent to our having let openly professed Nazis serve in the United States military during World War II in the war against Germany. And then prohibiting our brave soldiers in Iraq from firing on Mosques so that we don't offend the religious sensibilities of the muslims? Mosques where weapons have been stored to kill our young men and women fighting for their country; Mosques where hatred of Jews and Christians and the "infidel West" has been preached for decades by fanatical Islamic Mullahs; Mosques where terrorists meet to collaborate and exchange plans to conduct more terror campaigns?
Mosques are centers of idol worship for a pagan religion founded by a fanatical madman in the seventh century. There is no Mosque on the face of the earth that can be called a holy shrine, any more than Hitler's Reichstag could have been considered a cathedral.

"But we all worship the same God, don't we?" Well, don't we? If you truly believe this, why don't you go to Saudi Arabia, or any other muslim country, and share with them your wonderful message for world peace. Go and tell them that God and Allah and Buddha are all names for the same God! They might want to hear it. I'm sure that once you were within the borders of Saudi Arabia, or Pakistan, or Indonesia, or Iraq, or Iran, or Jordan, or any other Islamic country, and you shared with them your wonderful message of peace, that your muslim brothers would welcome you with open arms. However, it might easily be your sentence for a lengthy imprisonment, or even your epitaph as well; what one can say freely here in America in perfect and profound ignorance is not so easily tolerated by those who follow the teachings of the "Prophet".
During Muhammad's life, among his various wives he married a six year old girl when he was over forty, and consumated the relationship with her when she was nine years old. According to Craig Winn, who personally interviewed terrorists at the risk of his own life and who wrote a thoroughly documented biography of Muhammad's life, Muhammad was "a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape. He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet." (Craig Winn, Prophet of Doom). His band of followers were a far cry from the gentle apostles who followed the Prince of Peace and went around healing and preaching forgiveness in His name. The followers of Muhammad were a band of brigands who raped, robbed and slaughtered whole villages in the name of Islam, with Muhammad leading the pack. "Death to the Infidel" was part and parcel of this "religion" from the very start, and the present day militants have not "hijacked" Islam to suite their own present day nefarious ends; they are simply following the words and the example of the murderous founder of their faith.
Islam is not a religion of peace, and in it's long, bloody history it never has been.
At this very moment Saudi Arabia is pouring millions of dollars into the United States, building mosques, and setting up Islamic schools and camps for young converts, filling them with hatred for Christians and Jews, and even though most muslims in this country at this point are relatively peaceful (except the ones who fly airplanes into buildings), when their numbers reach a certain point, like killer bees they will turn on those who are the "infidels" and wage a jihad within our own borders. (Update: At this time, April 22, 2004, while Christian children are being denied the right to share Jesus with their classmates and Christmas scenes and the Ten Commandments are being taken down from public squares in this country, the town of Hamtramck Michigan, which is now one third muslim, is going to allow a Mosque to broadcast the muslim call to prayer over loudspeakers five times a day within the city limits).

James M. Foard
August 30, 2013
Regarding the following "Solution to the Muslim Crisis". The Bible says that there is a time for war, and a time for peace. In ancient Israel, when they went out to war against their enemies in a backslidden state, or without the leading and protection of God, they were miserably defeated by their enemies; it was a disaster. I had written the following nearly 10 years ago, the bulk of it sometime in late 2003 and early 2004, and edited portions of it over the years. At that time I still had hope for America to turn back to God, and have victory over the evil forces of Islam. Instead, we have turned further away from God, we have begun persecuting Christians in the military and in civilian life; punishing military chaplains for praying in Jesus' name while welcoming muslims into our armed forces and into our Government. We have a President who is at the very least pro-muslim in his actions and in his speech, as well as pro-sodomy and pro-abortion, even opposing born alive protection laws that would make it mandatory to offer assistance for a healthy baby should it survive a late term abortion. Our culture has become so bad that it would cause, if it were possible, even the people of Sodom to blush.
As stated, when a nation turns against God, they can expect very little help from Him in any kind of military endeavor. At this point, it would not be auspicious for America to engage in any kind of military offensive against any country, muslim or otherwise. Barack Obama is as wicked, probably more wicked, than any king over Israel recorded in the Old Testament, even when Israel was in her worst state of apostasy.
I believe if there is to be a possible answer to the muslim crisis, or any way to keep Islam from dominating the world, it will not come from America, unless we have A CHANGING OF THE GUARD, and I am not referring to another dog and pony show election; otherwise it will have to come from some other country, or a coalition of countries, possibly beginning in Africa with Angola, The Central African Republic, Southern Sudan and other countries, united together in a Christian Crusade to save Africa from muslim domination and enslavement.
Or there may form, in God's providence, a new country or a government, perhaps within our shores (if Fukushima does not render North America uninhabitable) that at this point in time, does not as yet exist, to conquer the muslim hordes (along with any lingering communist professors and marxists in academia and in the newsmedia). I will wait and pray and hope that the Lord, in His providence, may establish this new country, for His Name, for His glory, and for His kingdom.
So, once this new government, or coalition of nations is established, here are the steps that I wrote back in early 2004 that we need to take to free the world from Islamic domination:

There is a way to end Islamic terrorism, if only we had leaders with the vision and the fortitude to take the necessary steps to do it.  You do not destroy a noxious weed in a garden by merely plucking off a few of the outer leaves here and there while leaving the main body of the plant to grow. You must strike at the root of the problem and destroy it at it's source. The same must be done with the Islamic terrorist threat, the source of the evil must be destroyed.  This can and must be done while there is still time and strength enough in numbers, either by America or by some other country or armed force in the world.

Before we discuss what this source is, we must first of all understand that just as Judaism and Christianity have our Ten Commandments, so too there are Five Pillars of Islam. These Five Pillars must be observed by all faithful muslims throughout their lives in order for them to have a chance of entering heaven, according to their belief system.

These Five Pillars of Islam are Shahadah, their confession of faith in one God and in Muhammed as his messenger; Salat, or prayer; Zakat, or charity; Sawm or fasting during their sacred month of Ramadan; and Hajj, or pilgramage to Mecca, the city of their founder.
Salat, or prayer is preformed five times a day by every muslim on the face of the earth, and wherever they may happen to be they are meant to face towards the city of Mecca when they pray, even using a compass and map to locate the right direction to face, and when they pray they bow down to an object in that city.
The object they bow down to is an ancient object, a mysterious object that is central to the faith of all muslims worldwide. It is not only central to the Second Pillar of Islam, it is also central to the Fifth Pillar of Islam, the Hajj.

The source of the evil that must be destroyed and that is central to the Islamic faith worldwide is an idol made out of stone. It is the Kaaba Stone, the Black Stone of Islam. This idol is the cornerstone of the Qibla, the holiest of holies of the muslim religion; the stone that they believe was presented by the angel Gabriel to be the foundation for the Qibla (Kaaba), the ancient stone house in the center of the Masjid, the central worship place of all muslims worldwide that can hold as many as one million people within it's walls, located in the ancient city of Mecca, the city of the madman known for centuries to his followers as "The Prophet" in Saudi Arabia. This idol is venerated by all muslims and without it Islam the world over might in a very short time entirely collapse.

For America to win this war with terrorism, we must take these steps:

1: Repent and turn back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to His Son Jesus Christ, confess our sins and turn from our wicked ways.
2. Elect leaders with the fortitude to send an army in to conquer and subdue Saudi Arabia, the financial and spiritual fountainhead of worldwide terrorism.
3. Send a general with troops to Mecca and evacuate the city near the area of the Masjid.
4. Blow up the Kaaba and the Kaaba Stone, utterly incinerate it and scatter the ashes into the sea.
(If those sanctimonious liberals who are aghast at this idea had been around during World War II, they would probably have raised hysterical protests: "Oh my God, your going to bomb Germany?")
5. Sanctify the area and set up a church, and perhaps a Jewish synagogue as well.
6. Conquer the remaining muslim states in the middle east, the far east and Africa, and do not make the mistake of trying to democratise them within a few months of their conquest. That would be tantamount to trying to teach a rattlesnake to sit up and heel. You cannot duplicate what happened in 1776 in Philadelphia in Baghdad in 2004. They are two entirely distinct events, separated by a vast cultural divide.

The events in 1776 were a unique moment in history, presaged by a rich Christian heritage and by nearly two thousand years of a cultural heritage dating back to the civilizations of the Greeks and Romans. In the middle east you have a history of feudal dictatorships and despots that date back to a bloodthirsty madman in the seventh century. There is no comparison between the two situations, and you cannot just go into that region and think that you are going to set up some sort of working democracy like the Founding Fathers did in America two centuries ago and have the same type of political and religions freedoms that we have in the west.

(All of this was written in early 2004. It has turned out to be prophetic, thanks to the once and future idiot, George W. Bush) Democracy may come to the middle east through America's efforts, however over the course of time, what kind of democracy will it be? The potential for evil is just as great in the masses as it is when power is in the hands of a few individuals; witness the French Revolution for this. Without a strong Christian influence, over the course of time, what kind of society will a democratized Islamic culture develop into? How safe will the lives of Christians and Jews (and Buddhists and Hindus) living in those countries be?

Even if America succeeds in setting up some kind of democracy in Iraq, we have to understand that this will be a pagan government. Essentially, America, a country founded on Christianity, has just spent 200 billion dollars to set up an Islamic state! For doing this, judgement is going to come on the corrupt leadership of this country. God is very offended that we have spent our lives and our resources to set up a country dedicated to the bloody and false religion of Mohammed.

Democracy alone will not liberate Iraq. The only way that Iraq can be truly liberated will be when she is liberated from the wicked and oppressive Islamic ideology that created a monster like Saddam Hussein, that sends terrorist bombers into crowded marketplaces, that causes people to think that they are serving God by bowing five times a day to a stone hut in Saudi Arabia. The people in the middle east need to be liberated from their sin through the preaching of the gospel. Jesus is the light of the world, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and if the Truth shall set men free, then they shall indeed be free!

If there is to be peace in the middle east, we must first occupy these lands; we must jail the Islamist clerics, and we must bulldoze every Mosque in the middle east to the ground. (We must do this same thing in every country as soon as possible where Islam exists, including the Western countries of Europe and America. This is not a job for vigilantes and I am not advocating taking the law into your own hands; laws must be passed and enforced; but it must be done, and it must be done soon.
We are in a fight for our lives against a virulent, dangerous ideology that causes people to blow up innocent children and behead good men and women whose only crime is to seek to help an oppressed nation; an ideology that seeks to put the entire world under the brutal dictatorship of sharia.)
Then we must re-educate the people in the middle east, Africa and the far east, in essence civilise them, instructing their children in the true faith of the gospel. This may not happen until America has had a spiritual renaissance of her own and a re-establishment of our own Christian foundation.
7. Establish a Christian Republic here in America or in some other country in the world to shepherd the other nations of the world under the regency, or guidelines of the gospel to be wise and just stewards over the earth until the return of Christ for His people. (2013: Looking back now, since I wrote this in 2004, I realise at this point that step #7 will have to be step #1, in order to conquer Islam)

As we enter the new millennium, we have to ask ourselves whose set of beliefs will predominate in the social and political fabric of the world. Some nation has got to assume the mantle of responsibility to ensure that civil and religious rights are safeguarded for all people. I believe that a Federation of governments based on Christian principles is the only hope for mankind in the coming centuries.
I believe that the American constitution, with the added provisions mentioned above to ensure Christian liberty could be the blueprint for this government, or body of governments worldwide. As Plato said, either philosophers (lovers of wisdom and virtue) will become Kings, and Kings will become philosophers, or else there can be no rest from troubles.

Regarding those heathen nations who have persecuted Christians, and those in this country who have rejected the gospel and denied Christians their rights and promoted abominations and the slaughter of the innocents through abortion, if they will not yield to the gentle staff of our Saviour through the preaching of the gospel, then let them be disciplined by the iron of His rod, through a Christian government that would be guided by a set of Biblical statutes to wield power in justice and in mercy, with the officials of this government living frugal lives, not exalting themselves, not being harsh taskmasters, not given over to utter licentiousness, not unduly enriching themselves at the public expense, remembering justice, mercy, charity and reverence for God, being servants for Christs' sake, wise stewards over a Christian nation whom Christ shall raise up to shepherd the world until His return.
That is the only hope for America to survive in this new millennium and to fulfill her purpose, otherwise she will be destroyed by inward corruption and finally by her enemies without. 
America will not repent and return to her God, then she will fall and she will be no more than a memory lost in the dust of history, and God will raise up another nation to serve Him and bring Him glory. Let us work and pray for revival in America.

"God of our fathers, known of old-
Lord of our far-flung battle line-
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine-
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget-lest we forget!

The tumult and the shouting dies-
The Captains and the Kings depart-
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget-lest we forget!

Far-called, our navies melt away-
On dune and headland sinks the fire-
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget-lest we forget!

If drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe-
Such boasting as the Gentiles use
Or lesser creeds without the Law
Lord God of hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget-lest we forget!

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard-
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish word
Thy mercy on Thy people, Lord! Amen!"
                          Recessional,  Rudyard Kipling

I have said that there could be no peaceful resolution to our trouble as a nation, unless we surrender our free rights as Christians and citizens to the tyranny of the secular oligarchy. Sadly, this has indeed occurred. And yet, I do believe that just as in the days when Israel had apostatised, and a man of God had to flee from wicked rulers, so there is a righteous remnant left in this land who may be holding back the hand of God's judgement, or at the very least may alleviate it when it comes. There are some still who have not bowed the knee to baal, and who still love the Lord with all of their hearts. And perhaps, in His mercy, God may raise up a new nation on the ashes of this one, a country that will fulfill what America was meant to be at one time, a light to the nations, a City set on a hill:

"When a deed is done for Freedom, through the broad earth's aching breast
Runs a thrill of joy prophetic, trembling on from east to west.
Through the walls of hut and palace shoots the intantaneous throe,
When the travail of the Ages wrings earth's systems to and fro,
At the birth of each new Era, with a recognizing start,
Nation wildly looks at nation, standing with mute lips apart,
And glad Truth's yet mightier man-child leaps beneath the Future's heart."

"Backward look across the ages and the beacon-moments see,
That, like peaks of some sunk continent, jut up through oblivions sea,
We see dimly in the Present what is small and what is great,
Slow of faith how weak an arm my turn the iron helm of fate,
Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,-
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own."

"Then to side with Truth is noble, when we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and 'tis prosperous to be just;
Then it is the brave man chooses, while the coward stands aside,
Doubting in his abject spirit, till his Lord is crucified,
And the multitude make virture of the faith they had denied."

"'Tis as easy to be heroes as to sit the idle slaves
Of a legendary virtue carved upon our father's graves,
Worshippers of light ancestral make the present light a crime;
Was the Mayflower launched by cowards, steered by men behind their time?
Turn those tracks toward Past or Future, that make Plymouth Rock sublime?"

"They were men of present valor, stalwart old iconoclasts,
Unconvinced by ax or gibbet that all virtue was the Past's;
But we make their truth our falsehood, thinking that hath made us free,
Hoarding it in mouldy parchments, while our tender spirits flee
The rude grasp of that great Impulse which drove them across the sea."

"They have rights who dare maintain them;
We are traitors to our sires,
Smothering in their holy ashes Freedom's new-lit alter-fires;
LO, before us gleams Truth's camp-fires! we ourselves must Pilgrims be,
Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly through the desperate winter sea,"

"Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side
Hast thou chosen, O my people, on whose party thou shalt stand,
Ere the Doom from its worn sandals shakes the dust against our land?
Though the cause of evil prosper, yet 'tis Truth alone is strong
And albeit, she wander outcast now, I see around her throng
Troops of beautiful tall angels, to enshrine her from all wrong"

The book of Revelation makes it clear that during the last days, when the events revealed to the Apostle John begin to take place immediately prior to the second coming of the Lord, that there will be at least two final prophets on the earth; and perhaps there will be more. It is written "Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared, who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken, who can but prophecy?" (Amos 3:7-8)
The prophet Joel wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost that in the last days old men shall dream dreams and the young men shall see visions, thus an understanding of the events in that final book of the Bible will be revealed to His servants in the last days. Until that time comes (and it may be at hand, even at the doors) we are warned that in the last days there will also be many false prophets, even coming in the name of Christ, so every word should be weighed by God's infallible Word.
Take heed though, for the Word of God says that he who receives a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, but to receive the words of a false prophet would be to put your own life at peril:
