Sarah Palin Asks The Right Questions

Leave it to Sarah Palin to ask the RIGHT kind of questions regarding the Wikileaks fiasco. The hits against our beloved nation just keep on coming with the Soros-led puppet, BHO, as pResident in the White House.

Here is a copy of Sarah Palin's Facebook post:

Serious Questions about the Obama Administration's Incompetence in the Wikileaks Fiasco by Sarah Palin on Monday, November 29, 2010 at 12:17pm

We all applaud the successful thwarting of the Christmas-Tree Bomber and hope our government continues to do all it can to keep us safe. However, the latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.

First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months? Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.” He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?

What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?

Most importantly, serious questions must also be asked of the U.S. intelligence system. How was it possible that a 22-year-old Private First Class could get unrestricted access to so much highly sensitive information? And how was it possible that he could copy and distribute these files without anyone noticing that security was compromised?

The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?

We are at war. American soldiers are in Afghanistan fighting to protect our freedoms. They are serious about keeping America safe. It would be great if they could count on their government being equally serious about that vital task.

- Sarah Palin


My comment there:

Most people already know that the puppet Obama is incompetent. But his puppetmaster - George Soros - isn't. The combination of Soros being a billionaire, anti-American operative, evil financier (who has succeeded in destroying economies around the world), and anti-war zealot (intent on wreaking havoc upon our freedoms, safety, liberty, and independence while putting our soldiers in harms way in more danger); just proves that the man is a type of antichrist that Jesus spoke about in the Bible. Not THE antichrist, of course, but a precursor of what the world will endure when Christians are raptured and the world is run, temporarily, by Satan incarnate. There is no doubt in my mind that Soros has his bloody hands all over this so-called "leak." And the Obama administration just let it all happen. So shameful! So disgusting!

Thank you Sarah, for your excellent analysis here and for having the guts to speak your mind against the ObaMarxist regime that is intent on destroying our beloved nation!

Good comment recently posted at Palin's Facebook page:

John Cormie Let’s see if I can explain this. The reason why our government did nothing….

1. The Wikileak’s guy got his infrastructure funding from the OSI, Open Society Institute.
2. The person in charge of OSI also started SDS in the sixties (those wer...e the guys that liked to blow up things)
3. Assange’s Lawyer does Pro Bono work for OSI.
4. OSI was formed under the Tides Foundation.
5. The Tides Foundation is funded by George Soros.
6. George Soros has been to the White House at least 4 times. On one visit he brought an Asian woman with him. She is now Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff.
7. Get The Picture???
8. Additionally, many of the 10-2-10 rally participants (groups) support the Private. Those groups are supported by Trumpka, Stern, Soros etc….
9. So, it is all tied up in a pretty little bow.
10. So, we are sitting here screaming for the government to “Do Something”. This is the “Top Down”.
11. The bottom up is the groups Soros and others support.
12. We are being turned inside out in the middle; otherwise known as “Chaos”, screaming for the government to “Do Something”.
13. What exactly came out of the latest round of leaks that we didn’t already know?

Paul Vallely; MG US Army (Ret.) Is A Patriot!

Before I get to the topic at hand, I have to wonder - where have all of my detractors gone? Most likely, they are all still alive and well just not commenting here as often as they used to anymore (except for GMpilot).

While viewing my stats today, I was surprised to see 17 newcomers from the "I Own The World" blog visit here. Apparently, Talk Wisdom was one of the site's largest referrers.

There are always so many blogs with important and interesting articles in my sidebar. It is difficult for me to keep up with them all.

The latest Wikileaks document dump is quite the concern. Makes me shake my head in disbelief! Just whose fault is it that supposedly classified documents are being "leaked" to the world? Is this being done purposely? Perhaps by the USURPER ObaMarxist and his destroy-America-first agenda? Who knows??

While reading Citizen Wells latest post about Obama eligibility misinformation being told to the public, I ran across an email in the comment section that I think should go viral. Therefore, I am sharing a copy of it here:

America Witnesses the Downfall of “Obama”

By Paul E. Vallely; MG US Army (Ret.)

Yes, America, you are watching while Washington attempts to right itself and Obama self-destructs. What does a country and its citizens do as their nation continues to decline in power, financial stability and security of its people? We at Stand Up America shout aloud that we the people must stay strong and help right the national ship.

The Declaration of Independence states:

“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 to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

The ship has been righted to some degree by the November elections but so much more needs to be done.

We cannot permit the current leaders in the White House and Halls of Congress to continue in their efforts to lead us down the road of Progressive Socialism and global government initiatives. In our opinion, President Obama, his appointees and his czars must be replaced immediately.

This is the current battle that we Constitutionalists face and we must be aggressive in our efforts. Obama will continue to by pass Congress in his progressive agenda and issue extensive Executive Orders. Congress, you must stand tall for the American people and enjoin the Supreme Court to halt Executive branch violations of law and the Constitution.

Incompetence, corruption and Dishonesty of officials now come into play as relates to our National Security and Economy and is the rationale for resignations and a change of government. My emphasis in this article will be a continued plea for Americans to Demand Resignation of these officials by the people of this country.

We are at a point that if Demand Resignations and a new Congressional make up do change the direction of the country then we must proceed to Impeachment and a serious transfer of Power at the highest levels of government. Obama’s eligibility to be President must be totally vetted to confirm his legitimacy.

Lincoln issued this warning in his inaugural address:

“Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one. This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”

Being a representative republic, not a democracy, and “rising up” means other than revolution by use of arms. The people must “rise up” (Stand Up as we say now) from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power…resignation, elections, and impeachment.

The oath is simple and reads:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Sadly, we have seen them violate their oath. Fraud, lying, and corruption are rampant and some have engaged in treasonous activities, and they effectively thumb their noses at us and have sold you to the highest bidder.

The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote and secure the Blessings of Liberty. The balance of authority and individual liberty was understood. Power was confined to that which was enumerated in the Constitution with a certain and meaningful intent for check and balances.

Article One, S5, CII and the 10th Amendment provides the authority but this has been trumped by a system that rewards the powerful. In 1803 each congressional district averaged 38,476 people. In 2010 it is forecast to exceed 710,000. These numbers indicate power growth, and it effectively grew eight fold in the 20th century alone. No wonder our representatives seek to stay in office so long.

Power, money and benefits beyond the reach of most Americans are the basis now for many politicians and revolving door appointees staying in office. They must be termed out. With incumbency comes power. The party in the majority assigns power, so a long-term sitting representative can expect such power. A representative expected to stay in office in the 3rd Congress for approximately two years now expects 12 years, or 6 terms – so much for a “citizen government.”

But this can be changed through grass roots organization and discourse. We must make it a local imperative and movement….of the People…by the People… and for the People.

“We, the People” have had enough.
Enough is Enough.

The Obama White House and identifiable Members of Congress are now on a progressive socialist and treasonous death march and are bankrupting the country beyond expectations. We have watched them violate their sacred oath of office. “We, the People” cannot necessarily wait for the next round of elections. It is now that many of these public servants (and you know who they are) must put the people and country interests above self-interest by resigning immediately.

A civil uprising is still not out of the question as “pain” grips the country more each day. I am confident resignations will be forthcoming based on the efforts of the people. The 2010 vote is critical. This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends. Grass roots efforts have begun; it is now time to put this effort into over drive. America, stand tall together and we will weather the storm but we must act now!

If we think that this election has changed Obama’s objective, think again. He will resort to his executive privilege to get his agenda in place from the information that we are receiving. http://standupamericaus.com/america-witnesses-the-downfall-of-obama

Don't you just hate the fact that Obama keeps blaming Bush for the huge increase in the deficit when the truth is, most of the TARP money loaned under Bush's watch has been repaid?

It was so nice to hear how much our former president loves America. After two years of America-hating-and-bashing Obamafraud, I find myself longing for a president who genuinely DOES love our nation.

Sigh...despite the fact that I didn't agree with everything that President Bush did in his 8 years in office, he was light years ahead, beyond, and above ObaMARXIST on the greatness scale.

Although Bush refrains from criticizing his successor, at least he did take some time to defend what he did with TARP, in Iraq, and other decisions that he made while in office. It was good to hear him share the fact that tax cuts for small business owners created millions of jobs on his watch.

Seeing Bush as the likable guy that he is made me yearn for the good ole' days, when we could be sure that our president loved America and was on the side of WE THE PEOPLE.

Happy Thanksgiving - In The Faith

Despite all of the turmoil going on around the world and here in the U.S.A. we STILL have a lot to be thankful for! His promises written in the Bible have been kept. Prophecy fulfilled is proof of who He is and we know that all promises given to us by the Lord will be kept - both in this current world of existence as well as into eternity.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. His mercies are new every morning.

My loved ones all realize even more of His mercy and grace today. We had a health scare in our family, and the results of an MRI revealed that it wasn't the dreaded disease of cancer. The lesser problem is nothing compared to what a diagnosis for cancer would have been!

I recall praying for healing of my loved one through Jesus Christ two days ago. I recall witnessing the painful ordeal my loved one has been going through and the uncomfortable time endured through the MRI. I recall the agonizing wait the next day to hear what was wrong.

Through it all, friends and family were praying fervently. One very special lady kept telling me to "keep the faith."

People, no matter how strong your own individual faith is the truth is that we need each other, as fellow Christians, to help us in our times of fear, doubt, pain, suffering and worry. That is why we have the church. I don't mean a building - I mean the people in the faith.

The encouragement was greatly appreciated (you know who you are!!) and helped to calm my spirit while awaiting the test results.

Today was an extra special Thanksgiving. At our table, we thanked the Lord Jesus Christ for our lives, our health, and the love we have for God, each other, and especially the love that God has shown to us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you and yours this day and always.

Just An Embarrassment? Or Something More? [Update]

Tomorrow may be a big day in the Kerchner et al vs. Obama et al case. You can read about it here:

How eerie it is to realize that the silence of all of the media (except maybe some talk radio hosts and Internet blogs/websites) about this particular case is absolutely deafening! Just who or what is keeping every one in the Lamestream media muzzled about this? They must be very rich, powerful, and dangerous. They must be wielding quite the heavy hammer over the heads of every newscaster, political pundit, politician, and American who refuses to discuss it in this land in order to pull off this stunt!


Citizen Wells has a post up in which he questions whether or not Glenn Beck is a hypocrite. Why? Because Beck's The Blaze website has no information about the case, no mention of Lt. Col Lakin, or any of the other military personnel who are questioning Obama eligibility.

On the other hand, if the Supreme Court doesn't take the case, then in my own mind, I will have to come to one of two conclusions. Perhaps there are more choices in the matter (please share if you have another idea), but the following two make the most sense to me.

1. The devastating choice is that the United States of America has already been taken over by covert hostile measures and therefore all of the checks and balances which would allow us to question and present evidence about Obama's ineligibility will always be halted and/or doomed to failure.

2. The second choice is that "the powers that be" already know who Obama's biological father is, and it isn't Barrack Hussein Obama Sr. Speculation has been presented many times at this blog, and other blogs that Obama is actually the "secret" son of either Frank Marshall Davis or Malcolm X. Either of these men would mean that Obama does qualify as a natural born citizen which is required by the U.S. Constitution.

Some day the truth will come out. I don't know when, but it inevitably does.

I would rather the truth to be closer to choice #2 (above), because choice #1 is indeed the scarier scenario.

I recall reading that someone stated that "if the truth came out about Obama's long-form birth certificate, it would be embarrassing for him."


Whatever he is hiding, whether it would prove him to be constitutionally ineligible for the office of the presidency; or, just the fact that he would be found as a big fat liar and swindler to the American people about his past (gaining millions from the fake stories that were ghost-written about Obama by Bill Ayers in his books) - either case would indeed be highly embarrassing. But the first one choice is definitely an impeachable and resignation-required "embarrassment."

Bloggers all over the world have written about Obama's ineligibility (if Obama Sr. is indeed his biological father). I have made online friends from other countries, like New Zealand, Australia, and Canada etc. because of our postings on this topic over the past two years. Isn't it time for the truth to be told?

It is my sincere hope that tomorrow will end up being THE day of reckoning for Obama that so many Americans are waiting for. If the truth is finally revealed, then what Obama uttered in that speech so long ago
- "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal" - might FINALLY come to fruition. Just not in the same manner that Obama was thinking it would happen!

11/24/10 Update:

WorldNetDaily: U.S. Supreme Court confers on Obama eligibility
Is president a 'natural-born citizen' as Constitution requires?


WASHINGTON – Is this the case that will break the presidential eligibility question wide open?

The Supreme Court conferred today on whether arguments should be heard on the merits of Kerchner v. Obama, a case challenging whether President Barack Obama is qualified to serve as president because he may not be a "natural-born citizen" as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.

Unlike other eligibility cases that have reached the Supreme Court, Kerchner vs. Obama focuses on the "Vattel theory," which argues that the writers of the Constitution believed the term "natural-born citizen" to mean a person born in the United States to parents who were both American citizens.

"This case is unprecedented," said Mario Apuzzo, the attorney bringing the suit. "I believe we presented an ironclad case. We've shown standing, and we've shown the importance of the issue for the Supreme Court. There's nothing standing in their way to grant us a writ of certiorari."

If the Supreme Court decides to grant the "writ of certiorari," it may direct a federal trial court in New Jersey to hear the merits of the case, or it may choose to hear the merits itself. The court's decision on the writ could be announced as early as Wednesday.

If any court hears the merits of the case, Apuzzo says it will mark the "death knell" for Obama's legitimacy.

"Given my research of what a natural-born citizen is, he cannot be a natural-born citizen so it's a death knell to his legitimacy. What happens on a practical level, how our political institutions would work that out, is something else," Apuzzo told WND.

Apuzzo observed it is "undisputed fact" that Obama's father was a British subject.

A hearing on the merits "is also a death knell because it would allow discovery so we would be able to ask him for his birth certificate, and we don't know what that would show," according to Apuzzo. "We might not even get to the question of defining 'natural-born citizen.' If he was not born in the U.S., he'd be undocumented, because he's never been naturalized. We don't even know what his citizenship status is. Hawaii has said they have his records, but that's hearsay. We have not seen the root documents."

What a fantastic Christmas gift it would be to finally have the truth about Obama come out into the open!

From Mario Apuzzo's blog update:

Update: No Decision to Be Released Until Monday per

Mat 10:26 "Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

Mar 4:22 "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

Luk 8:17 "For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.

Luk 12:2 "For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.

Hbr 4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

1Ti 5:25 Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.

1Cr 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,

2Cr 4:2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.


Second Update:

Also see Lame Cherry Blog: An American Hero


I will not go into details as all are aware of teh 1948 British Nationality Act, which Mr. Obama was born under, in his father was Kenyan British and his mother being a minor, was upon marriage made a British subject, so in that Mr. Obama is British no matter if he were born on the moon or Hawaii.

Those are the facts as Mr. Obama is not America, but is an adopted Kenyan national into Indonesia, and illegally papered by the American State Department.

What Mr. Apuzzo can do is argue this case in New Jersey, or if John Roberts wills with a majority, the Supreme Court can hear this case on Obama being undocumented.
I noted here after a certain State of the Scrotum speech by Mr. Obama when he had Charles Schumer spitting on the Justices in Congress, that Mr. Obama in berating these High Court Judges, that he had made an immense 3rd world mistake.

Literally, the Supreme Court can remove Mr. Obama by the end of the week and in discovery actually force all what Mr. Obama has spent 2 million dollars hiding, to be made public.

I pray that this is the case in the Court actually doing it's Constitutional job for the first time in protecting America that they will find the facts in this case.
The dropping poll numbers of Obama now provide them cover, and with Nancy Pelosi speaking on Obama's files she has, there is now afforded the American government the chance to be thee American Government in wiping this corrupt regime from power.

How many adjectives can we name to describe Obama?

Liar. Runs corrupt regime. Unjust political power. Dirty money. Terrible policies, bills signed and continuing criminality. Destroyer of American economy. Puppet of the evil billionaire puppeteer - George Soros. Anti-American. Usurper. Possible illegal alien. So much more could be added to this list!

As Mario Apuzzo has pointed out time and time again, Obama is definitely ineligible for POTUS (if indeed, Barack Hussein Obama Sr. is Obama's biological father) and thus should be removed IMMEDIATELY from office!

Lame Cherry concludes:

From power............

Think of that in one brave American, standing alone where so many others have been threatened, fined and hounded, that this one American standing on Constitutional Law can force from thee most powerful seat in the world, a fraud in B. Hussein Obama.

No tanks, no terrorism, no million man marching rioters, no gatherings at FOX or CBS and no whispered Bush or Clinton intrigues for power, just one lone man, one lone American Hero has legally in persistence laid the groundwork for thee most important story in modern world history in removing an illegal from office, of a nation that illegal sought to destroy, by this one Hero using the very document which founded America.

Mario Apuzzo, if those who are mandated to uphold the Constitutional Laws of these United States do so, is a legend before our very eyes.
His greatness surpasses Lincoln and Reagan, and he stands with the Founders like the Minute Men in securing America from tyranny against all odds.

He literally can bring down a criminal tyrant, armed with nuclear arms, myriads of federal press, a corrupt Jake Tapper press, a fawning court protecting crime and a Democratic Congress and patrician Bush establishment which protected this usurper in Obama, and do it all with the power of the Laws of these United States.

Can there be anything more beautiful or American than that. One rugged individual against the mob. There is only one American who is of that standard and it is our beloved John Adams, the second President of these United States, and forever the greatest Federalist protector of this Republic.

Mario Apuzzo is just an American, but what a breed these real American are.

I hope the Supreme Court is of 5 of those breed of Americans yet in protecting that Shining City on a Hill.

What Shall I Render to the LORD?

When situations get tough or a crisis happens within a family, it is so easy to worry, wail, and cry, "Why me Lord?" This is especially true whenever health issues pop up in our lives. Been there, done that....many times.

But how often do we, as believers in Jesus Christ, stop and consider the immense blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon us during our lives? How many times do we thank Him? At dinner each night? At church each week? Once a year at Thanksgiving?

A Bible verse comes to mind.

What shall I render to the LORD for all His benefits toward me?
Psalm 116:12

Even though we can give our heartfelt thanks for all that Jesus Christ has done for us, the question that Psalm 116:12 is asking is "what shall I render...?"

At Dictionary.com there are a LOT of definitions and descriptions for the term "render."

What can we learn from the Bible about this term and verse?

The Blue Letter Bible provides a Treasury of Scripture Knowledge page that gives us additional passages that can be studied regarding answering such a question:

Psa 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

No matter what happens on this earth, no matter how long each of us lives, no matter what obstacles are thrown in our path - we can always have the joy of God's salvation in our hearts, minds, and spirits! If we let Him uphold us by His generous Spirit - He most certainly will!

Psa 51:13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.

When we are filled with the joy of the Lord and His provision of salvation through Jesus Christ, we can then "teach transgressors" (all have sinned) His ways, and sinners (we all qualify for that title) shall be converted to God!

Psa 51:14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.

Once we know that we are delivered from all of our sins - even the heinous sin of bloodshed by "the God of my salvation," we can then sing the praises of the righteousness of Jesus Christ! It isn't our righteousness that saves - it is His!

Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

Is this verse telling us that blessing the LORD via our souls in prayer helps to remind us of all of His benefits?

Isa 6:5 So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts."

The Old Testament prophets, such as Isaiah, looked forward to the coming of the Messiah to save them from their sins. Meanwhile, they sacrificed unblemished animals for the temporary forgiveness of sins - a foreshadowing of what Christ's sacrifice would accomplish in the final act of redemption for all of mankind. Isaiah prophesied much of what the coming Messiah would endure for our salvation. Seeing the King, the LORD of hosts was frightening indeed because of his sinful condition. But that's not the end of the story!

Isa 6:6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.

Isa 6:7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged."

Another symbolic act where in the OT, the prophet Isaiah was assured that his iniquity is taken away by God and his sin purged from remembrance. In the next verse, look at Isaiah's huge change in attitude!

Isa 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

Isaiah changed from the frightened sinner into a man that God could use! He enthusiastically answered "the voice of the Lord" by saying, "Here am I! Send me."

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

When we get to the New Testament verses from this list, we see that the "brethren" were to present their bodies as a living sacrifice - meaning that they would gladly obey God's commands and be holy and acceptable to God while doing service for Him in spreading the Gospel of Christ.

1Cr 6:20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

And why would we become "living sacrifices" for God? This verse answers that question - because "we were bought at a price" through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross! We are now called to glorify God both in body and spirit!

Now we get to the crux of the matter and can answer the question in Psalm 116:12 - What shall I render to the LORD for all His benefits toward me?

2Cr 5:14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;

2Cr 5:15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Soros Owns Obama (Added Links)

With all that we know about billionaire, hate-America atheist George Soros and how he funded ObaMarxist 's presidential campaign, how could anyone believe that Obama is a genuine Christian believer? I wrote about the evidence that showed Obama was not a Bible-believing, born-again follower of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, way back in 2008. My suspicions have continued to be confirmed over the course of the last two years. Take a look at the 60 plus posts I have written on the topic of Muslims not to mention how many posts you would find here on Radical Islam and how Obama and his evil cohorts always seem to take the side of Islamists, while hating ordinary Americans who protest at TEA Party events!

Today, I wanted to revisit that first linked post and reiterate the reasons why my points were highly accurate regarding Obama's fake Christianity.

Ask yourself this question. Since Soros absolutely hated George W. Bush (a professed born-again Christian) and spent billions to (unsuccessfully) prevent Bush from becoming president both in 2000 and 2004, why would Soros spend additional billions backing Obama if he ever thought or believed that Obama was a genuine Christian? Just that fact alone supports my belief that Obama is anything but a Christian. Who knows what he is. An atheist? An agnostic? A secret Muslim? All three? Pretending to be all three?

We do know that Obama is a socialist, Marxist, redistribute-the-wealth red diaper doper baby (thanks for that descriptive title, Michael Savage) because the history of his life, including his parents, show them all to be atheistic, Communist-leaning socialists who desire to "transform America" from what the Founders intended (Constitutional Republic) into a member of a global socialist-like "utopia" nation. Trouble is, we know how each and every Communistic experiment in history turned out. Millions of people murdered!

New Zeal has a post up today introducing the blogosphere to a new site called Six Degrees of George Soros. There are some names there that I don't immediately recognize, but I plan to read up on them and their connections to Soros.

I find it somewhat amusing when Glenn Beck shows concern for Obama's "safety" because Soros & cohorts might "cut him loose" from the puppet master strings if he doesn't do their bidding while usurping the Oval Office. I don't think that Obama would be in any danger to his person, per se, but perhaps his political career would come crashing down when all of the media gets the word to trash him because of his failed policies. I suppose Beck has to be magnanimous in his attitudes towards Obama because of the Saudi influence over at Fox News Channel. As I have stated many times before, it is eerie how Beck can go on and on about Obama's Marxist connections to Soros, but his Muslim roots and associations are never investigated by Beck & Company.

DWTS Upset

I was curious to read some of the frothing-at-the-mouth opinions about Bristol Palin making it to the finals in Dancing With The Stars. Rarely do I ever venture over to the HuffPo blog, but there is a rant against Bristol over there which shows how upset the liberals are about her success in getting into the finals. If you want to read it, do a search. I do not wish to link to them. At the time I viewed that blog post, there was only one comment that said (paraphrased), "if Bristol wins in DWTS, I will NEVER watch that show again!"

I know how the commentator feels. My husband and I thought that Taylor Hicks didn't deserve to win at American Idol.

Another blogger likened Bristol to the competitor named Sanjaya a few years back on American Idol. Perhaps all the teeny-boppers across the U.S.A. kept him in the running.

I must admit, I thought that Palin was going to be eliminated last night. Brandy deserved to be in the final (and I thought that she was going to end up the winner) more so than all three who are now in the final. But this contest includes what the judges think and how they vote, as well as what the audience thinks and how they vote.

I do recall Brandy being very nasty to her dance partner in the beginning weeks of the show. During the clips of her dance rehearsals, the censors needed to bleep out her curse words. I'm sure that both her nastiness towards Maks, her hissy fit walk-out during rehearsals, as well as her cursing didn't endear her to people who were not already fans.

IMHO, Jennifer Gray is a professional dancer. She appeared in "Dirty Dancing" many years ago with Patrick Swayze. Swayze was a pro - and he taught her the moves during the filming. I didn't think it was fair for her to be in the contest to begin with.

IMHO, either Bristol Palin or Kyle Massey should win. Why? Because wasn't the concept of this show to take someone with little or no experience in dance and teach them to blossom into a performer worthy of receiving that mirror ball trophy?

An Example Of "The Spirit of Antichrist"

During the three day expose' of George Soros on The Glenn Beck T.V. Program, Beck often urged viewers to "not take his word for it - do your own homework." Well, these days I don't have a whole lot of time to investigate as I should, but when I find a blogger who has done good research and commentary on the topic, I like to share it here at Talk Wisdom.

If you haven't seen the series on Soros, go here and view them all.

Next, read American Thinker: Soros, Beck, and the Holocaust


It will come as no surprise that Glenn Beck's broadcast biography of George Soros last week has triggered a vast brawl concerning his interpretation and treatment of the topic.

The uproar revolves around Beck's portrayal of Soros' role in the Holocaust. Beck repeats the widely known story concerning Soros' involvement in handing deportation orders to Jewish families on behalf of the Nazis. He emphasizes that Soros was only fourteen at the time and does not condemn the activity, asserting that the matter remains "between Soros and God."

I happen to have researched the episode in depth for my upcoming book, Death by Liberalism, and I can state here that Beck's narrative is completely accurate. His treatment of it is commendable, in particular his statement that no one has a right to judge the efforts of Jews to survive in Nazi-occupied Europe.

Soros, Beck, and the Holocaust
posted by null at American Thinker - 9 hours ago
Should the "philanthropist" Soros' activities during the Holocaust be off-limits for discussion?

Mr. J.R. Dunn has done extensive homework on this issue while writing his book. The fact that he has presented such truth about Soros via his new book - well before Beck's three day T.V. presentation about Soros - lends great credibility to what Beck has reported.

The fact that Beck has used video excerpts of Soros' own words demonstrates that he is being truthful about the accusations against such an evil marketeer.

J.R. Dunn continues:

There's an aspect of Soros' behavior that has gone unexamined and virtually unmentioned: the complete disconnect between his activities as a businessman and his ambitions as a philanthropist. Soros has, at the very least, skirted financial regulations in most or all of the countries in which he has operated. He has done worse in France, Malaysia, and Thailand -- the French fined him millions, while the Southeast Asian states are reportedly very interested in speaking to him in private. He has caused enormous misery through his currency manipulations. He evidently feels no guilt concerning these matters, either.

Yet this same man professes to be the greatest living champion of the "open society," the bearer of the legacy of Karl Popper (one of the few liberty-loving political philosophers of the last century), and the architect of a true people's democracy, working together with his protégé, Barack Obama.

There's something terribly wrong here. This is not the way a benefactor of humanity actually behaves. It's as if Gandhi financed his independence movement through a network of casinos, or if Martin Luther King sat on the councils of Murder Incorporated. What can the explanation be?

Mr. Dunn shares what he thinks that the explanation might be. Perhaps he is correct, but maybe he isn't. Personally, I don't think the author got it right at the end of his essay.* Nonetheless, there can be no denial that Soros fancies himself as his own "god" and uses his billionaire status of wealth to inflict financial misery upon as many people in as many nations as he possibly can. This type of behavior is not the kind that any benevolent philanthropist would exhibit. This man is evil, sick, and a manipulative financial and political terrorist. He could be labeled as one of those who has the "spirit of Antichrist" [Note: note THE Antichrist] that Jesus warns us about. Those with such a "spirit" are "already in the world." No doubt in my mind that Soros, a self-admitted atheist, is one. The evidence is overwhelming.

1Jo 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1Jo 4:2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

1Jo 4:3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

I enjoyed Mr. Dunn's article until the last couple of paragraphs. No, Gyorgy Schwartz felt no remorse, is not and was not trying to correct some wrong he had done in the past. It is time for people to recognize that there are people who are purely evil. You don't justify being a mass murderer or rapist because your parents divorced when you were little, if that's the case, the world will be filled with people like that, without remorse, while justifying their actions through some traumatic events in their past. Everybody has trauma in their past, yet they don't turn into monsters.

God's Ultimate New World Order

This Week’s Television Broadcast
God's Ultimate New World Order Week of November 14, 2010
Writers, dreamers, and futurists have described "golden ages" and "utopias" of various sorts, to be brought about by the upward evolution of man to a perfect state. The true golden age, God's Millennium, will be brought about in spite of man, not because of him.

David Jeremiah.org: This Week's Television Broadcast - God's Ultimate New World Order

Have you ever really studied the words and lyrics of the familiar and beloved Christmas song, "Joy To The World?" In reality, most of the song has to do with Jesus' Second Coming and his reign over all the world during the Millennium!

Pastor Jeremiah mentions this fact in this week's television broadcast. When you hear what he has to say along with what the words in the song convey, you might agree that "Joy To The World" distinctly describes the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Read the lyrics:

Joy To The World

Joy to the world! The Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart
Prepare Him room
And Saints and angels sing
And Saints and angels sing
And Saints and Saints and angels sing

Joy to the world, the Saviour reigns
Let Saints their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, Repeat, the sounding joy

Joy to the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love

And wonders and wonders of His love

No more will sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He'll come and make the blessings flow
Far as the curse was found,
Far as the curse was found,
Far as, far as the curse was found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And gives to nations proof
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love;
And wonders of His love;
And wonders, wonders of His love.

Rejoice! Rejoice in the Most High,
While Israel spreads abroad
Like stars that glitter in the sky,
And ever worship God,
And ever worship God,
And ever, and ever worship God.

At the website where I found a copy of the lyrics, there are several paragraphs written which includes the idea that this song has more to do with Jesus' Second Coming than with his birth in Bethlehem.

The words and lyrics of the old Christmas carol "Joy to the World" were written in 1719 by Isaac Watts. The father of John Watts was a Non-conformist and so extreme were his views that he was imprisoned twice. His father's influence over Isaac was demonstrated when he choose to attend Non­conformist Academy at Stoke Newington in preference to a University. Watts was ordained as a Pastor of an Independent congregation.

"Joy to the World" is one of the best-known and best-loved of Christmas carols. It contains a message of joy and love replacing sin and sorrow. It may also be interpreted to be about life after the second coming of Christ. The hymn is significant for its widespread use throughout Christian denominations and for the musical stature of the people who created it.

Sodium Saints

In late October, a new commentator arrived at this blog and chastised me in the comment section for my post against Obama entitled Talk Wisdom Reports - You Decide: White House Scandal to Break Soon?

Donna60 wrote:

donna60 said...
I understand that not everyone who calls themselves a Christian believes that the bible has to be obeyed. As a member of the "restoration movement." I cannot have any other authority on earth that supercedes scripture. That being said, no person who believes in and lays their hopes in the perfection and completeness of NT scripture, can trash-talk our president or any lawfully elected leader of our United States. Romans 13:1-2 "Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves."

1 Peter 2:17 "Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king."

October 28, 2010 8:21:00 AM PDT

You can follow the rest of the comments here.

Now, although Donna60 ended up veering a bit off topic, she certainly had a lot of good and correct things to say. However, I don't think that she handled her position about "governing authorities" in the biblical way.

For example. Paul points out that we have both a duty to obey governing authorities when they are following God's laws and not to obey when evil is being proposed by them. As Christian believers we have the duty to disobey when any leader is involved in immoral behavior or governing practices.

As Donna60 had pointed out, Paul DID instruct Christians in Rome to "be subject to the governing authorities" (Romans 13:1) and to pay their taxes. Those who disobey the state, he wrote, resist "the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves" (Romans 13:2).

The kind of "judgment" rendered could include the temporal kind (i.e. punishment while here on this earth); or, the eternal type (i.e. White Throne Judgment in eternity) at the culmination of all history.

However, what I think was sorely missing in Donna60's arguments in the comment thread is the fact that the Bible also demonstrates that unrighteous decrees are not to be obeyed. For example, recall that the Hebrew midwives feared God more than the king of Egypt so they disobeyed his murderous and absolutely cruel order to kill all newborn Hebrew boys. God blessed them for disobeying this evil leader's mandate and as a result, note what happened: "And so it was, because the midwives feared God, that He provided households for them" (Exodus 1:21).

When I read Donna60's reply, her belief that evil dictators like Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao "should be obeyed" shocked me! It was then that I realized that she was making a common mistake that Christians sometimes do (been there, done that!) while reading the Bible. She took one Bible verse (Romans 13:2) and applied it incorrectly to mean that in ALL instances, one should obey one's leader of the state. That is NOT what the Bible tells us!

I am currently reading a little booklet that has been given out by Coral Ridge Ministries called "Ten Truths About Christians and Politics." Truth #3 discusses that the Bible gives guidance for governments and citizens. The following excerpt gives specific Bible verses and commentary that upholds my position in this discussion:

Shortly after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, Jewish authorities grew troubled at the growth of His followers and strictly instructed Peter and the other apostles against teaching about Christ. The apostles refused, telling the high priest, "We ought to obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29).

Along with the duty to disobey unrighteous commands, the Bible indicates that God's people have a duty to control political authorities who stray from God's moral standard. The Old Testament often recounts how the prophets confronted the Jewish monarchs with God's verdict upon their unrighteous behavior. The prophet Samuel announced God's judgment on Kin Saul for his disregard of God's word to him (1 Samuel 15:22-23). Elijah challenged wicked King Ahab over his Baal worship and was called the "troubler of Israel" for his effort (1 Kings 18:17). Nathan confronted David for his sin with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband, Uriah (2 Samuel 12).

Besides confronting evil and refusing to go along with it, there is another role outlined for the saints in both the Old and New Testament - to be "salt and light." God, through Jeremiah, told the Jewish exiles in Babylon to "seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace" (Jeremiah 29:7). The exiles were not to withdraw from their ungodly environment into a cultural enclave, but rather to seek its peace or shalom - a Hebrew term also translated as "welfare."

Sodium Saints

Jesus calls his people to be like salt in their influence on the world around them (Matthew 5:13). Just as salt was used in first century Israel to flavor and preserve food or to cleanse wounds, Christ's followers are to bring the flavor of God's grace and the healing and preserving power of His Word into every area of life - including the world of politics.

It is important to remember that when salt is used to cleanse wounds, it stings! When Jesus calls us to be "salt" in this world, I'm sure that pointing out the fact that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" stings the heart, soul, mind and body of every person who then comes to the realization that his/her need to confess sin and repent (turn away) of them HURTS.

But the healing power of the Gospel is worth the initial pain brought to the minds of those who humble themselves before the cross of Christ at Calvary. Our pain is NOTHING compared to the pain and suffering that Christ endured for our sakes on that cross.

Being a Christian often means that not everyone is going to like you. In fact, Jesus warns us that many will hate you (us) because "they first hated Him."

We cannot shy away and shrink away from our Christian duty in the world of politics because people will hate us for speaking out against the evil, sin and death that is often imposed upon us by the unbelievers in this world. We are to stand up and share the truth!

Ephesians 6 instructs us on how to prepare ourselves for this type of spiritual battle. Whenever someone challenges me for my beliefs and how, when or why I share them at this blog I remember these verses:

Eph 6:6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,

Eph 6:7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,

Ephesians 6 tells us to arm ourselves with:

* The belt of truth girded around your waist.

* The breastplate of righteousness.

* Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

* Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

* And take the helmet of salvation.

* And the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Prepared with such equipment we also need to be:

Eph 6:18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

Eph 6:19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,

Eph 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

The Greatest Stunt and Scam In American History?

Talk Wisdom Reports, You Decide. The question being asked within the video below: "Is Barack Obama a Saudi Muslim 'Plant' in the White House?" Could it be that we were set up by the Muslim world and perhaps the king of Saudi Arabia? Could this be why Obama bowed to the Saudi king in 2009?

Certainly explains the "bowing" incident to the Saudi king - doesn't it?

Hmmmm.....perhaps this is why the Fox News Channel allows Glenn Beck to go after George Soros, and all the socialists, Marxists, Communists etc. related to the ObaMAO administration on his daily television show. But have you noticed that Beck doesn't touch the subject of Obama's Muslim ties? Even when Beck did a mini-history on him, he skipped over Obama's obvious Muslim background while a child in Indonesia.


Could it be because the Fox News Channel is partially owned by Saudi investors?

I'm admittedly a bit lazy at the moment (strained muscle in my back doesn't help either) so I'm giving readers here an assignment. Find out if the Saudi king (and the investors at Fox News Channel) are Sunni Muslim or Shiite Muslim. Might be interesting to know. We know that these two sects within the Islam have been at each others throats for centuries. I'm also wondering if that American Born "radical cleric" [more specifically - RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORIST] Anwar al Awlaki is Sunni or Shiite?

As time goes by during this pResident's first term, only more questions, doubts, fears, and concerns come up about just who this guy REALLY is!

What's Wrong?

In my mind...lots of happenings in the world today are wrong! This news roundup will express just some of the latest reasons why I, along with millions of other Americans, think that something is terribly wrong with our nation and the world.

The end times prophecy books that I have read and re-read over the past several months do explain why such events are happening. However, I often wonder about people who have no idea what is prophesied in the Bible. Those who may never have read the Bible and don't know about the 300 plus prophecies which have already been fulfilled in the life of Jesus Christ can't possibly discern the signs of the times. What do they think of the current trend towards a humanistic New World Order utopia that the puppetmasters here on earth are trying to set up?

The prophetic books of the Bible, like Ezekiel, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Revelation, are chock full of information, wisdom, and knowledge. How ironic it is that the current generation seems to be following every religion, trend, movement, political idea and/or leader that looks like they can solve their individual problems; only to be disappointed in the end when they wake up from the stupor and discover how wrong these particular beliefs are in practice! Hard lessons are to be learned when people trust in men rather than in God!

More than ever before in my lifetime, I am seeing a huge rise in ungodliness and the pursuit of worldly lusts. I don't even want to list them. Just watch the news for several nights in a row and you will witness what these worldly lusts are.

In Titus 2:12 Paul wrote, "Denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soverly, righteously, and godly in the present age."

In Dr. David Jeremiah's study guide, Revealing the Mysteries of Heaven, he writes:

These are not theoretical ideas, they are actionable ideas -- hands-on goals to pursue. In the world we live in, anyone who is not "pursuing" and "denying" is going to get caught up in the things of this world.

Isn't that the truth! "Pursuing godliness and denying ungodliness" covers it all!

Dr. Jeremiah continues:

The connection between the pursuit of godliness and the return of Christ is everywhere in the New Testament. Not to see the value of the study of heaven is to miss a central theme of Scripture.

I have read such passages many times over the 20 plus years I have been reading and studying the Bible, but the fact that there is a connection between pursuing godliness and the return of Christ just jumped off the page at me today.

Unfortunately, I have seen compromise creep into the lives of some of the most conservative, godly Christian brothers and sisters that I know. This saddens me greatly. For example. A woman who was very involved with trying to keep a gay/straight alliance from our local high school (back in 2000) recently sent me an email of her "picks" for the election that occurred on November 2nd. She wrote that "Meg Whitman is pro-choice, but she is against partial birth abortion and thinks that parental notification for minors is necessary." For me, I just could not vote for Whitman, knowing that she is for the killing of babies in the womb. I COULD NOT COMPROMISE on that issue! I couldn't do it regarding Obama, in whom I disagreed on most issues back in 2008, nor could I do it regarding Whitman, even though I agreed with most of her other policies. As a result, we got liberal leftist Jerry Brown - who won by a substantial margin anyway. I didn't vote for Arnold when he ran and I never regretted that decision.

I know that some conservative voters might blame me (and other pro-life hold-outs who didn't vote for Whitman) for Brown's win. So be it. I'll take those lumps. But after re-reading Dr. Jeremiah's central ideas regarding pursuing godliness, I still do not regret my CA governor decision.

Dr. Jeremiah:

* 1 Corinthians 1:7-8 Being blameless (holy) when Christ returns.

* Colossians 3;4-5 Put to death unholy practices in light of Christ's return.

* 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13 Having blameless (holy) hearts when Christ returns.

* 1 Thessalonians 5:23 Being blameless (sanctified) when Christ returns.

* 1 John 2:28 Not being ashamed at the time of His coming.

* 1 John 3:2-3 Purifying ourselves in light of Christ's appearing.

[B]eing tough-minded about godliness means making hard decisions about what we spend our lives doing in the present in light of our future with Christ.

Here's video of Glenn Beck's special segment on George Soros the "Puppet Master." Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Via Lonely Conservative ------------------------------ Maggie's Notebook

Are you watching Glenn Beck's latest exposure of the billionaire puppet master George Soros? If not, you need to so that you will be informed about just who is pulling the White House strings while at the same time demolishing what's left of the Democrat party.

See Romans 1

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

Rom 1:19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

Rom 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

Rom 1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

Why Soros (an admitted atheist) is the way he is:

1Jo 2:18
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

Rom 1:29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

Rom 1:30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

Rom 1:32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Mat 18:6
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mar 9:42
And whosoever shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

Luk 17:2
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

That's quite harsh...wouldn't you agree? Crimes against children in our "tolerant" culture today have escalated beyond belief. Why? Matthew 6:19-23 helps explain:

Mat 6:19

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

Mat 6:20

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Mat 6:21

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Mat 6:22

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Mat 6:23

But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness!


Back to Dr. Jeremiah's book.

Many people think studying the Scriptures concerning the return of the Lord and the inauguration of heaven is a waste of time. But it's not! If that were true, the authors of the New Testament would not have focused on it like they do. Remopve all the information about the future from the Bible and you remove about one-fourth of the book. Christ promised that He was going to return to earth, so we need to be tough-minded about that promise and live in light of it.

Peter said that scoffers would come in the last days and mock the promise of Christ's return (2 Peter 3:3-4). But men forget that God doesn't keep time like we do (2 Peter 3:8). All the prophecies in the Old Testament about Christ's first coming were fulfilled, and we can be sure the promises of His Second Coming will be as well.

C.S. Lewis wrote, "I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country which I shall not find until after my death. I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside. I must make it the main object of life to press on to that other country and help as many as I can, do the very same."

Here are some New Testament exhortations about the return of Christ:

* Philippians 3:20 Wait for Him eagerly.

* Titus 2:13 Watch for His coming.

* Hebrews 9:28 Eagerly wait for His coming.

* 2 Timothy 4:8 Love His appearing.

We need to be tough-minded about Christ's promise to return and not let the world lull us into apathy and ungodliness.

1Jo 2:12 I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.

1Jo 2:13 I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father.

1Jo 2:14 I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one.

1Jo 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1Jo 2:16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.

1Jo 2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Vital Fruit Inspections

Don't become confused. I'm not writing about agricultural-type fruit inspections!

One of my favorite Christian blog authors, Bill Muehlenberg of Australia, has written an excellent post called "The Desperate Need for Biblical Discernment" over at his Culture Watch blog.

Please share the link with your Christian brothers and sisters. The need for biblical discernment seems to be increasing exponentially as the years go by. Why? Because the warnings that Jesus Christ himself gave us in Matthew 7:15-23 are happening at such an alarming rate these days. The false prophets, false teachers, anti-christs, etc. are creeping into the churches unnoticed at times, and the people who are being duped by such charlatans need to be awakened and shown the Truth.

My comment there (in moderation at the moment):

Bill, you have the wonderful skill, the keen ability, and the spirit of a willing soul to write essays that are so important for the times that we live in today. How timely, how excellent, and how teachable is this article!

Our former church pastor used to tell the congregation to "call him out" if what he shares in any sermon is not Bible-based. We attended that church for about ten years. Suddenly, when the church as a whole wanted to do an in home Bible study on Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life," I began to see the compromise creeping in. What stirred me to recognize it? The fact that Warren's video "welcome" and introduction to the book study course left out the fact of the need for confession of sin and repentance at the foot of the cross of Christ! Several other study leaders noticed this as well. When I raised my hand and shared my concern about this, the lecturer/leader organizer just shrugged his shoulders and said, "I'll look into it." Never heard anything back about this gross error in presenting how to be born again in Christ. So, since I was committed to being a leader I added what was missing to the prayer of salvation and during the six weeks of in home study, made sure that the people attending knew what was needed to be saved according to John 3.

I had recently contacted you via email about an error in judgment that was done by another pastor and church that we formerly attended. Thanks again for your great discernment and advice.

These are not frivolous problems or disagreements. They are huge! That's why we have the warnings in Scripture that you have pointed out here. Warnings to beware - directly from Jesus himself!

I love your last paragraph - especially the need for "vital fruit inspections." Can I borrow that great phrase for my blog post title today as I link to your essay?

God bless you Bill. Your Holy Spirit led discernment abilities shines through like a ray of light on this darkened world of sin, evil and death. I admire you greatly for your essays and articles that teach us well and bring Bible-based wisdom alive to Christians all around the world here at this blog!
