Beck Show: Stand With Israel / A Child Prodigy

Did you see the Glenn Beck Program on the Fox News Channel today? If not, please go to Watch Glenn Beck later today when the entire show will be available for viewing. [NOTE: CHECKED BACK AT 4:24 p.m. PT and the video is up now.]

It might be helpful to watch yesterday's show (at the same link) because it was related to the first half of today's show.

Excerpt of yesterday's show:

Tonight: As the Middle East continues to burn, the United States - and most of the world for that matter - have not taken a firm enough stance in alliance with Israel. Instead, the Obama administration has been silent as groups like the Muslim Brotherhood start to work their way into power in Egypt and other countries. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that shares American values. They are constantly provoked and attacked, yet despite having a heavy nuclear arsenal they have not launched a single one. We should be standing with them- but at least so far, we have chosen to remain silent...

In tonight's show (check link above for video later tonight), Beck demonstrates how "surrounded" Israel is by all of the Arab/Muslim nations that have called for Her destruction. I have often quoted one of the most profound Bible prophecies that uses the ancient names of current nations that would rise up against Israel in the last days.

If you would like to read about this incredible prophecy made by David, see:

David's Incredible Prophecy Of Israel's Enemies Today.


The second half of Beck's show introduced today's T.V. audience to a 12-year old college student named Jacob Barnett. Today, he is considered a brilliant young man. But if you read about his life story, you will see the challenges that he and his parents faced when he was only 18 months old.

Boy Genius, 12, Has Higher IQ Than Einstein, Developing His Own Theory of Relativity


Kristine Barnett won't soon forget the "most devastating day in the life" of her son.

Jacob, called "Jake," her then 3-year-old, had recently stopped talking and had been diagnosed with autism. One day, she dropped him off at a gymnastics class, and, when she returned to pick him up, Barnett, 36, says she found all the other students sitting in a circle, while Jake was curled up and cowering in a corner.

"It was the day I knew Jake would never do sports or be like other kids later in life," the day care provider and mother of four tells ParentDish. "My heart broke, thinking he would be trapped inside this forever and never be able to talk to us."

But today, 12-year-old Jake is studying electromagnetic physics at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and has an IQ of 170, higher than that of Albert Einstein. And he's astounding university professors by developing his own theory of relativity -- they're lining him up for a Ph.D research role, Barnett, of Noblesville, Ind., says.

When Jake was 8, he jumped from fifth grade to college after teaching himself all the high school math classes -- calculus, algebra, geometry and trigonometry -- in one week and testing at college-level mathematics, Barnett recalls.

Recently, the boy has embarked on his own expanded version of Einstein's theory of relativity. Barnett sent a video of his theory to the renowned Institute for Advanced Study near Princeton University.

After a devastating diagnosis of Aspergers syndrome this child has grown to be a child genius.

What a fabulous indication of God's plan in a life - going from tragedy to triumph in such an enormous way in this young man's life!

Critiquing Teleprompter Obama's Libya Speech

Was Obama's recent speech the first time that he used a third teleprompter? Or, have I just turned off the T.V. too often lately when he appears during a news conference or news clip, therefore, I must have missed this tool's current habit of using a third teleprompter? Wow! That is truly sad to learn! For once, I thought that Obama was making an attempt to look into the camera lense and speak directly to the American people. But the sorry fact is that this puppet of George Soros was utilizing a third crutch by reading off of a center-placed teleprompter!

But the teleprompter fraud's content of this speech was one for the Obamafile's historical archive. At first, I wondered which category it would deserve to be placed in. Oh...I know - the The Complete and Utter Bulls**t File!

Drkateview has posted a great video of three REAL reporters critiquing Obama's speech. It's brilliant!

Trump Breaks MSM Obama Eligibility Silence [Update!]

It is interesting to note that after Donald Trump asked to see Obama's birth certificate, the questions surrounding Obama's eligibility continue to spread like wildfire. What's more, Trump continues to not back down on the issue. Trump even went so far as to say, "There is something on it that he (Obama) doesn't like."

As usual, Whoopie Goldberg (again!) disappoints on The View when she tried to blame racism for the concern over why Obama refuses to show the American people absolute proof of where he was born; as well as all the rest of the pertinent information that would reveal details about his birth, upbringing, college years etc. Why would someone with nothing to hide seal all of his records??  Why would someone with nothing to hide shell out 2 million dollars in lawyer fees to keep the case out of the courts?

Drkatesview: Trump Card Beats Race Card has a great post up on this subject. No wonder the Soros lefties heads are exploding!

Update on Sunday, April 17, 2011:

This post was included in a column over at Canada Free Press!

Abuser Sheen's Self-Destruction

Have you ever wondered how many people actually follow the latest insanity being broadcast out there about crazies like Charlie Sheen? I don't even go looking for such information. Whenever he is being discussed on a TV station that I happen to land on while flipping through the channels, I roll my eyes, sigh once again, and change the channel.

My question: When does it become Sheen overload? Are all of these people genuinely being entertained by his dangerous antics? Do they see it all as a side show of Sheen self-destruction?

Well, against my better judgment, I clicked on a link from the Fox News website that had a disturbing title:

Charlie Sheen Threatens Warlock Napalm on Denise Richards, She Seems Oblivious

Go read that link, and then follow through to an additional link that reveals the fact that Sheen neglected the Pug dogs that Denise allowed him to keep for while (they were originally hers) and so she took them back.

Denise started getting calls that the pugs were malnourished and neglected. [NOTE: bad language alert in the comment section.]

As the above article states, one of the two pugs died due to malnutrition.

As a dog lover myself, I am absolutely horrified!!! How did this thug get away with that crime? Celebrity, unfortunately, lets so-called  "stars" get away with evil deeds that any ordinary person would never get away with.


Anyone who thinks that Sheen is funny or entertaining in any way, needs to come back to their senses and realize what a horrible abuser he is. He has been accused of abusing at least two of his three wives, neglected two dogs and one died as a result of that neglect. These people who think highly of him because of his "acting ability" are spiritually blinded from the evil that this man lives in and promotes.

You may question my motives in doing a blog post about someone who is as despicable as Charlie Sheen. Well, I am hoping that maybe those who would not ordinarily come to this blog might come along and start reading the posts about Jesus Christ here.

Shedding some light upon the evil that surrounds us in this fallen world is a good thing. Only then is there a chance for confession, repentance, reconciliation through Christ's Cross, and ultimately redemption back unto God for all eternity.

Is someone like Charlie Sheen beyond redemption through Jesus Christ?


However, the likeliness of him coming to repentance while he is deeply involved in his drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, people and animal abuse, drunkenness etc. is, unfortunately, very slim. He needs an intervention done by those who still love him and want to save him from himself; as well as save him from an eternity separated from God.

In other news, be sure to read the excellent essay about the "coexist" bumper stickers (often seen by me when I visit the oftentimes loonie Los Angeles area):

Gateway Pundit: The Fallacy of Co-existence


The bottom line is that free market principles eventually win out over economic tyranny just by existing elsewhere.

Islamic countries experience that identical dynamic. There is no way for a Shariah compliant society with all of it’s idiocy, violence, torture, misogyny, murder and antithetical moral values surviving in the long term if even a small portion of that society learns that there is somewhere else to live on the planet that offers a lifestyle that is more pleasant. People would eventually question all the teachings about Allah the Mullahs espouse because there is something sacred and invincible in the human spirit that always and quite naturally yearns for freedom and pleasure. This natural component of the human spirit will eventually reject everything that virulent Islam, Jihadist and Shariah compliance force on people.

So, the answer to the questions: why can’t the leftist and/or the Moslem fanatic coexist with America and Israel? And why can’t these types of people just find a nice leftist and/or Moslem fanatic society to live in for themselves? Has a very simple answer. No. They cannot make this choice because it is impossible for them to coexist with us without eventually being destroyed by our existence. Even a passive democracy, like say France, will surely attract a number of apostates from these two faiths and these apostates will collapse all the hard work the leftist or Islamic tyrant did to make the perfect leftist or Islamic society. This is why we who are free will always be targeted for death, destruction, conversion and submission by those who are our ideological enemies. Just in case you haven’t noticed, this destruction is exactly what Islam and leftism is unleashing on France as you read this.

Sure, after getting attacked, terrorized or seeing crimes against humanity, our society inevitably fights evil regimes with military force too but it is not the military action America, Israel or the West takes that causes our enemies consternation, it’s our freedom, harmony and very existence that threatens evil regimes and causes them to attempt to destroy us in order to keep their own people in line with the ideologies the leaders have forced on the people to retain power.

This truth completely dispels the illogical myth of “coexistence.” An idea ironically pushed by those on the left and Islam who will never choose to coexist with a free society no matter how well their Utopian ideas of nation wide communes, workers’ paradises, gulags, terrorist training camps, Madrassas, mosques, compact fluorescent light bulbs, solar panels, windmills, smart cars and capped carbon emissions succeed in their own nations in the short term, eventually those flimsy ideas will be washed away by the powerful flow of freedom’s natural watershed. The leftist and Islamic fanatic has only one course of action to take which is to attempt to parch the spring of human yearning and poison the well of human freedom wherever it exists by forcing his sick ideology on all others to give any chance these backwards ideologies have at long term survival.

Obama's Illegal War Defies The War Powers Resolution

REALLY pressed for time this morning folks, but I wanted to get three links posted (HUGELY IMPORTANT FOR ALL AMERICAN PATRIOTS TO READ!!) because the Obama controlled media of mass deception will not report the truth!

Please see this new blog I found and read this post:

Creating Orwellian World-view by Machiavellianism a blog by Alaphiah: Obama is helping al Qaeda take over Libya

Obama and his aides know they are taking a big risk. “It's a huge gamble,” says the senior administration official. The administration knows, for example, that al Qaeda, which has active cells in Libya, will try to exploit the power vacuum that will come with a weak or ousted Gaddafi. --Massimo Calabresi
A friend asked me to explain to him why president Obama started a third war with Libya. I quipped off that president Soetoro is helping al Qaeda take over Libya. My friend’s shocked and awed response was Nah-uh; you just don’t like the president, do you?

I assured my friend that my answer had nothing to do with whether I liked or disliked the president. You asked me why the president started an illegal war with Libya without consulting the Congress and I told you.

I said, “Maybe you missed the Times Magazine article in which Times outlined the Soetoro, ‘pre-emptive doctrine.’ I said to him, “you remember how liberals accused president Bush of launching a pre-emptive war against Iraq?” He nodded yes he remembered. In its article Times alleges that the Soetoro administration over-stated the case when they accused Col. Murmmar Qaddafi of human-rights violations against his own people just so that they would have an excuse to start a war in Libya. (see story)

As it turns out, Gaddafi hasn't done enough to justify humanitarian intervention—despite their rhetoric to the contrary, the administration and human rights organizations admit that reports of potential war crimes remain unconfirmed. Instead, interviews with senior administration officials show that the rehabilitators convinced Obama to go to war not just to prevent atrocities Gaddafi might (or might not) commit but also to bolster America's ability to intervene elsewhere in the future.

Starting war with Libya is president Soetoro’s ‘weapons of mass destruction’ moment. As it turns out Col. Qaddafi hadn’t done anything to warrant president Soetoro’s aggression on March 19th the day he started dropping bombs on Libya. The president’s act of war was completely unconstitutional unmerited and without excuse. Simply this illegal war is worst than anything the U.S. has done in the past, since we’ve had the mistakes of the past to learn from. Yet in spite of lesson of the pass, this administration started a war without first consulting Congress. That’s unconstitutional. For example, even the previous administration consulted congress before starting the Iraqi war.

The author concludes with this chilling revelation:

Moreover, whom benefits from the absence of Western influence many believe it’s the Muslim brotherhood and or al Qaeda.



Next, watch Glenn Beck connect the dots on his Thursday T.V. broadcast!

Watch Glenn Beck: Is America on the Wrong Side?


Tonight: This show is definitely one to share folks...Glenn lays out a series of issues on the table and asks the question- Is America on the wrong side? One of the key players in tonight's show is Samantha Powers, the wife of Cass Sunstein, who was instrumental in advising Obama on Libya. She is a proponent of the Responsibility to Protest doctrine that the UN has used to invade Libya. Other Progressives like Richard Falk want to use that same doctrine to justify invading Israel. Powers herself has called for a Mammoth Protection Force against Israel. Tune into radio tomorrow for more on this development.

[NOTE TO THE SKEPTICS OF GLENN BECK'S SHOWS:  There is a link beneath the video that gives all of the research that was done for the preparation of each T.V. broadcast.  Please don't keep your head in the sand any longer!  Pass this important information to everyone you know!]

drkatesview: Obama's Illegal Libya Orders


In response to the New World Order/Brzezinski Obama-instigated crisis in Libya and the discussions of imposing a no-fly zone, the Congressional Research Service (h/t Rich T) prepared a report that clearly indicates his orders to attack Libya are unlawful.

No matter how Obama or the Pentagon play this–as being directed by the U.N., authorized by NATO, or within the Commander in Chief’s authority–the Obama administration has violated not one, but many laws and the Constitution with his attack on Libya.

Beyond the requirements of the Constitution, the key element of this discussion is the War Powers Resolution of 1973.

From the report:

The War Powers Resolution (WPR) states that the President’s powers as Commander in Chief to introduce U.S. forces into hostilities or imminent hostilities can only be exercised pursuant to (1) a declaration of war; (2) specific statutory authority; or (3) a national emergency created by an attack on the United States or its forces.
It requires the President in every possible instance to consult with Congress before introducing American Armed Forces into hostilities or imminent hostilities unless there has been a declaration of war or other specific congressional authorization.
It also requires the President to report to Congress any introduction of forces into hostilities or imminent hostilities; into foreign territory while equipped for combat; or in numbers which substantially enlarge U.S. forces equipped for combat already in a foreign nation.
Once a report is submitted, or ‘required to be submitted’, Congress must authorize the use of force within 60-90 days or the forces must be withdrawn.

These actions are required before the initiation of hostilities. Obama did not meaningfully consult with Congress, did not produce a report, and did not justify this action for the American people. Instead he did what he wanted and ran like a coward and despot.

Again, go to the link at drkatesview and read all of the links and comments (which also provide some good additional links).

If this violation doesn't end up removing Obama from office, then there must be some heavy evil hands holding our nation hostage from prosecuting the usurper.

God help America. Only He can protect us now, save our Constitutional Republic, and get us out of this situation. I pray that it is His will to preserve and protect our people and nation from all the turmoil being inflicted by our enemies - both foreign and domestic.

Lord Jesus, I know that we are not worthy. The sins of this nation are huge. Many have turned their backs on You and commit unimaginable acts that go against Your Holy Word. I pray that you will have mercy upon us and guide us back to the attitudes, policies, and acts of righteousness that are pleasing to your eyes! Your mercies are new every morning! We need mercy more today than ever before in the history of our nation! We confess and repent of our sins! We turn to you, Lord Jesus, and we ask for your grace to be shed upon us - which we don't deserve - so that we can continue to spread the gospel of salvation to those who do not know you as Lord and Savior. Amen.

Your servant,

Franklin Graham's Comments Stir Firestorm of Internet Searches

Franklin Graham's comments about the End times on Newsmax have stirred up a frenzy of Internet searches for more information over the past few days. My original blog post about it has sent hundreds of hits over here to Talk Wisdom.

One thing I noticed while viewing and listening to the Newsmax interview (although it is a very small detail) was that when Graham was describing what Jesus had told us in the Bible regarding "the signs of the times" (and how to interpret such signs to mean that it is getting close to Jesus' Second Coming), Franklin neglected to mention, "rumors of wars."

Here are the quotes from the Bible where Jesus mentions "rumors of war":

Mat 24:6 "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mar 13:7 "But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.

Luk 21:9 "But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately."

Are you curious to know what "rumors of wars" means? I was interested in finding out so I did a search for commentaries about these verses over at Blue Letter Bible.

First, in Matthew, Jesus said:

Mat 24:6 "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all [fn] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mat 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, [fn] and earthquakes in various places.

Mat 24:8 "All these are the beginning of sorrows.

All that we are experiencing right now - the earthquakes, pestilences, famines, etc. as a result of all of these disasters - are only "the beginning of sorrows." We need to be prepared for the worst case scenario. And I'm not just talking about food, fuel, and shelter. I am talking about eternal salvation!

I like Chuck Smith's outline of a sermon he did years ago (around the year 2000) on these verses.

Intro: Jesus promised His disciples, "if I go, I will come again..." The second coming of Jesus Christ is essential for the fulfillment of Bible prophesy. He shall return to the earth again with His Church to establish God's Kingdom.


A. Notice the questions do not deal with the rapture of the church which is a separate event.

1. There are no prophetic signs needing fulfillment for this event.
2. This could take place at any time.
3. Jesus said watch, be ye ready.

B. The rapture shall precede by seven years the second coming.

1. So signs of the coming of Christ can cause us to be aware.
2. Many of the signs here in Matthew shall not be fulfilled until last seven years.

a. Verse 14 fulfilled in Revelation 14.
b. Verse 15 happens in the middle of the seven year span and is the mark by which we can number the days 1,290 to the end.

A. "Nation shall rise against nation..."
1. This denotes world war.

a. Though wars and rumors of wars have existed and were not a sign, world war is to be a sign.
b. Some of you have lived through two such wars.

B. "Famines."
1. Amazing how much we are reading about famines in these days.
a. North Africa being plagued.
b. India has perennial problem.
c. Bangladesh
d. Great drought in mid-west causing some to talk of food rationing by next spring.
e. Food production not keeping up with population expansion.

C. Pestilences.
1. We read each year of new virus that are sweeping around the world.
2. Hospitals become plagued with staph infections [Christine: e.g. MRSA] which seem to be imperious to all disinfectants.

D. Earthquakes indifferent places.
1. Hardly a week passes that you do not read of an earthquake taking place somewhere in the world.
2. They can only speculate at what possible damage might incur here in Orange County if one of the five fault systems should slip.

a. Because of the high water table in this whole basin they speak of the ground liquefying.
b. "The Lord is my refuge and my strength."

A. A parable was intended to teach a lesson through symbols.
1. Expositional constance.
a. The field is the world.
b. The fig tree the nation Israel.
1. The cursing of the barren fig tree.

B. The re-establishment of the nation Israel was to be a sign.
1. This generation shall not pass.

What does "rumor" mean?

I have discovered that it doesn't necessarily mean the same thing as our current English dictionary states. But the "Word Origin & History" definition (in bold) is more accurate to describe the Greek meaning used in the Bible:

Word Origin & History


late 14c., from O.Fr. rumour "widespread noise or report" (Fr. rumeur ), from L. rumorem (nom. rumor ) "noise, clamor, common talk, rumor," related to ravus "hoarse." The verb is recorded from 1858 in the sense "spread a rumor." Rumor mill is from 1973. Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper

Looking in a Bible Concordance, we read the Greek word(s) and meaning(s):

189. akoe ak-o-ay; from 191; hearing (the act, or the sense, or the thing heard): - audience, ear, fame, which ye heard, hearing, preached, report, rumor.

191. akouo, ak-oo-o; a prim. verb; to hear (in various senses):- give (in the) audience (of), come (to the ears), ([shall]) hear (-er, -ken), be noised, be reported, understand.

What is the ultimate purpose of these signs? Namely, the spread of the Gospel! Such signs: "birth pangs" are to give the people of the earth one last chance to repent and accept Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives.

Have YOU heeded the call?

Franklin Graham says he's worried about the state of the world and quotes the Bible and the second coming of Jesus as reference to why. For bringing that up, is he a Patriot or a Pinhead.
Go to Bill O' to record your vote.


After voting, you will see this message:

Thank you for participating in the Pinheads & Patriots Poll. Your response has been recorded.
Bill will reveal the results on The O'Reilly Factor after the voting period has closed. Watch The O'Reilly Factor or check back here on for results.

It will be interesting to see how the public votes on this issue.



Did you ever think that you would hear the demand for the impeachment of Obama coming from the far leftist loons??

Keeping On Jesus' Message

In a previous comment thread, some questions regarding Jesus' Transfiguration on the Mountain came up. See what Luke wrote about this event:

Luk 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father's, and of the holy angels.

Luk 9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Luk 9:28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

Luk 9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment [was] white [and] glistering.

Luk 9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

Luk 9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

Luk 9:32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

Luk 9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

Luk 9:34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

Luk 9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Luk 9:36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept [it] close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

It is interesting to note that in the NIV version, Luke 9:33 is stated as:

"As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.)"

Peter "did not know what he was saying."

The notes tell us more:

When Peter suggested making three shelters, he may have been thinking of the Feast of Tabernacles, where shelters where set up to commemorate the exodus, God's deliverance from slavery in Egypt. Peter wanted to keep Moses and Elijah (Elias) with them. But this was not what God wanted. Peter's desire to build shelters for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah may also show his understanding that real faith is built on three cornerstones: the law, the prophets, and Jesus. But Peter grew in his understanding, and eventually he would write of Jesus as the "chosen and precious cornerstone" of the church (1 Peter 2:6).

When the voice of God the Father (verse 35) came from the cloud, He was telling the disciples to LISTEN to Jesus. Why? Because He proclaimed him to be His Son. Jesus has been given the authority, from God Himself, to have such power and authority.

Unfortunately, there are many "false teachers, false prophets, and false Christs" in the world today. They appear to be lovers of God and His Christ, but they are actually "wolves in sheep's clothing." This tells us that they will lead those who follow such men (or women) astray. My blogging friend Neil over at Eternity Matters has a post up describing a man who could be described as a perfect example of a false teacher.

So, how does one not get caught up in a cult, or the teachings of someone who would cause a person genuinely seeking God's Truth to drift (or be dragged) away from the Man of Truth - Jesus Christ?

It's easy, actually. Just remember that if a person's teaching is true, it will agree with Jesus' teachings. TEST EVERYTHING YOU HEAR AGAINST JESUS' WORDS, AND YOU WILL NOT BE LED ASTRAY.

This serves as a warning not to seek advice or guidance from merely human sources. Knowing God's Word, the Bible through having studied it yourself with the guidance of the Holy Spirit (which happens once you are born again in Christ) will keep you on message - on Jesus' message, that is!

God the Father Himself told Peter and all the others standing there - each of them in awe of what they had just seen (The Transfiguration) that they were to listen to Jesus and not to their own ideas and desires. This is crucial, folks! There can be many secular, well-meaning people out there (Oprah comes to mind) who follow the "politically correct" ideas of the world (i.e. all "faiths" worship the same God) and think that they are doing good and a service to those seeking the truth. But watch out!! Humans are fallible beings! They like to think that a concept such as the "coexist" movement is pleasant, loving, and deserving of admiration. But if such a movement leads you away from Christ, what good is it?

Jesus himself said:

Luk 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Luk 9:25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

Luk 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father's, and of the holy angels.

Being born again gives one the ability to follow Jesus. This gives us the confidence about who he is. When we believe that he is God's Son, then we will want to do what he says!

Another Look at Obama's SS Number [Update]

Found a good blog that has a post up which asks the question: Whose Identity Did Obama Steal?


The real owner of the number that Obama confiscated may still be living. Is there an individual that is 121 years old today? It is interesting that the number hasn’t been recorded by the SSA as a death. So who issued Obama the number and buried the real owners name?

So We The People: We have a fraudulent and forged Certification of Live Birth for Obama, a forged or fraudulent Selective Service record, birth announcements that aren’t duplicated anywhere else in the US in any library, inserted pages into a birth index in Hawaii, hospitals that don’t claim him, falsified documents by the Democratic Party, a State record stating that Obama is a natural born citizen, photo-shopped family and self photos, professors stating they never saw him at Columbia University, a phony book that was written by Bill Ayers, no living “real” blood relatives, no records from his Illinois Senate days, no medical records, and multitudes of sealed records. How many of your friends have no documented background? Are they in witness protection?

What else could we think other than this is a man whose ideology is foreign because he is foreign. He can’t relate to us because he isn’t one of us. Anyone that can’t produce a simple document has lots to hide. He said it himself. But when there are multitudes of the same document associated with his name…we have a conman, a thief, and a liar. How many social security numbers do you have? Obama has no less than four dozen!

I have heard this accusation being discussed on other blogs before, but this blog has lots of detail included.

We The People Of The United States.

I have added the blog to my blog roll. Going back over there to read more posts and comments!

WorldNetDaily: Jack Cashill - Another look at Obama's Social Security number


This being the case, I asked Daniels to guide me through the data mine field and help me ascertain what we know for sure about the world's best-known Social Security number – 042-68-4425.

"All I can say," says Daniels of 042-68-4425, "is that it's phony and [Obama] has been using it, with it first appearing on his Selective Service document in 1980."

Daniels sent me a copy of the hand-written application of the individual who held the number immediately before Obama's, 042-68-4424. The applicant, Thomas Wood, died at age 19, which is why his information is available.

Wood's Social Security number was issued sometime between March and May of 1977. Obama would turn 16 in August of that year. Wood lived on Glenview Drive in Newington, Conn., the state from which all "042s" applied. Obama lived in Hawaii.

True to form, the left-leaning media set out to undermine the Social Security controversy and ridicule the investigators. Revealing, however, is the weakness of the response.

"Numbers are assigned based on the return address on the request envelope, not residency," crowed Jason Linkins in the Huffington Post as though he had said something meaningful. Linkins suggested two possible explanations, both preposterous.

One is that Obama applied for his SSN as a little boy in Indonesia for no known reason, and the application just happened to be processed in Connecticut for no known reason either.

For the second, Linkins cited the argument of Carole Glibert, in the Yahoo-related "Associated Content." Said Gilbert, presumably with a straight face, "In fact, Barack Obama's dad attended college in Connecticut and in 1977, Obama was college aged; is it beyond reason to consider that he might have checked out his father's alma mater?"

Last time I checked, Harvard was in Massachusetts. The closest town to Harvard in Connecticut is about 90 minutes away, and there is no record that Obama Sr. lived there, let alone that Obama visited his imaginary alma mater and just happened to apply for a Social Security card while visiting.

Daniels also sent me a copy of Obama's Selective Service data. Obama appears to have registered on Sept. 4, 1980, a month after his 19th birthday. The form lists the telling last four digits of his "042" number, "4425."

This is the first use of the "042" number that Daniels could find. She is just not sure it is legitimate. Some have credibly argued that the Selective Service information was forged and backdated once Obama became a presidential candidate.

"They were stupid to use the CT number on the [Selective Service] card," Daniels adds, "because now there is no way for [Obama] to back out of that number."

Other than the 1980 Selective Service registration, the first time Daniels could find Obama using the "042" number was in 1986 in Chicago.

As to how Obama may have secured that number, it is possible that he turned to his radical friends for advice.

"We invented all kinds of ways to obtain false identity papers, and got busy building multiple sets of ID for each of us and for every contingency," writes Bill Ayers of his years in the Weather Underground. "We soon figured out that the deepest and most foolproof ID had a government-issued Social Security card at its heart."

For the record, Ayers appears to have commuted between his wife and children in Chicago and Columbia University in New York from 1984 to 1987. Obama left New York, where he, too, had attended Columbia University, and arrived in Chicago in 1985.

Daniels and Sankey have tracked Obama's many uses of the "042" number in Chicago, in Massachusetts and in Washington. Others numbers appear with the "Obama" name, but Daniels cautions against attributing these numbers – with the exception of those from Obama's college days at Occidental – to the president.

From Daniels' perspective, one felonious use of a fraudulent number is enough. She believes this to be a more tangible scandal than the birth certificate and wonders when someone beyond WND will start paying attention.

Jack Cashill is an Emmy-award winning independent writer and producer with a Ph.D. in American Studies from Purdue. His latest book is the blockbuster "Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Love and Letters of America's First Post-Modern President."

Rock TV: Who Is God?

Miles McPherson, Pastor of The Rock Church in San Diego CA is now broadcasting his Sunday sermons on Rock TV. The current TV series is also available on the new website that shares videos of the sermons he presents at the church every Sunday. The new series is called Who Is God? Here are links to the first three broadcasts:

Miles McPherson: Rock TV Episode One - Who Is God?

Miles McPherson: Rock TV Episode Two - Who Is God?

Miles McPherson: Rock TV Episode Three - Who Is God?

Who Is God?
Isn't that a question that all of us end up asking? Who is God? For me, being raised in the Catholic church I later realized just how little I knew about God. As a child, I can still recall looking up at the huge crucifix of Jesus on the wall of the church and asking, why did he have to die like that? Did he really need to die for me? For you? For us all?

As I grew older, I gradually came to learn what was missing. It was a lack of understanding what the Bible says about God, Creation, our sinful nature, Who was actually worthy to forgive the sins of the world, and why Christ's sacrifice on the cross was necessary for the salvation of mankind.

In turn, my part was to believe in Christ and accept what Jesus offered, confess my sins, repent of my sins, and ask Jesus to enter into my heart to be Lord and Savior of my life. Jesus promised that he would send the Holy Spirit to live inside of me -to help guide me in my walk with Christ and to help me understand what the Bible had to say.

Jesus asks each of us, "Who do you say that I am?" How we answer that question determines where each of us will spend eternity.

It is my hope and prayer that those who read here will take the time to follow this series. Who knows? Perhaps the questions that you have had your entire life about Who Is God? will be answered!

God bless,

Chaos or Christ?

Isn't all of the turmoil going on in the world today making your head spin? The terrible earthquake followed by the tsunami in Japan is enough to bring us all to our knees in prayer. Add in all of the unrest throughout the Muslim world. Note the continuing financial crisis here at home (unemployment, inflation, home foreclosures, high prices for food and gas etc.) and the financial woes going on across the world. Include the battles going on between two opposing ideologies. The conservatives/ TEA Party Patriots (who want to keep our nation as our Founders intended) are fighting hard against the Fabian Socialist screwed up ideas of the Soros progressives and union leaders - who are intent on destroying capitalism and our Constitutional Republic (including marriage as the union of one man and one woman, increased abortion tragedies, demoralizing our military with unnecessary "gay" rights acknowledgement; the list is endless!!) in order to change our nation in a Islamo-fascist/socialist/Marxist regime - and you've got enough chaos to label it all a kind of tribulation in and of itself!

This brought back to my mind a conversation I had years ago with a Christian believer who held to the Mid-tribulation Rapture view. That link is a Bing list to 692,000 additional links where you could find out information about that view. I checked out some of the links found on the first page of the Bing list. The third one I clicked on was a good explanation of why the Pre-Wrath/Mid-Tribulation view of the Rapture doesn't quite fit what the Bible tells us regarding when the Rapture will occur..

Is the Mid-Tribulation
Pre-Wrath Rapture the Biblical View?

For example:


2. Problem with this view:

The devastating events of Revelation 6:16-17 and Revelation 7:14 occur before the middle of the Tribulation. The Tribulation (Daniel's Seventh Week) begins with the outpouring of the Seal judgments, followed by the Trumpets and ending with the Bowl or Vial judgments. There is no break in the progressive judgments only a worsening of the wrath of God as they are cast upon the earth.

3. Revelation 6:1-15. The events of Revelation 6-10, reveal a very terrible time for the Earth. Note the terrible events of the seven seal judgments and the six trumpet judgments:

Verse 2 White horse: This rider goes forth conquering and to conquer. It is probably the Antichrist who appears to be white in that he offers peace to the world. He deceives the nations and all the while he is talking peace he is conquering the nations of earth and setting up himself as the world dictator.

It is imperative to acknowledge who it is that is opening the Seals and directing the Seal Judgments. It is plainly the Lamb who is the Lord Jesus Christ. It is ridiculous to conclude that these terrible judgments are the "wrath of man" and not part of God's wrath. Without question Revelation 6:1 is telling us that the Seal Judgments are the beginning of God's pouring His wrath on the earth. They are initiated by Jesus Christ and under His direction and control and part of His plan. On this point alone the Pre-Wrath view is shown to be in error.

The chaos that has been increasing over the last several years could cause some Christians to believe that we already are in the midst of the Great Tribulation! But are we? Jesus did tell us that we would go through such times prior to the Great Tribulation as described in the book of Revelation. However, in Matthew 24:6, Jesus informs us, "but the end is not yet."

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mat 24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

Going through such times is just "the beginning of sorrows."

We are certainly going through these "sorrows." They are intensifying and the
"nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom" [Egypt, Libya, for example] is now happening right before our very eyes! The amount of Earthquakes each year are increasing exponentially and becoming even more intense than in past decades.

It helps to read the entire chapter of Matthew 24 to get the correct context of this portion of Scripture. I will be commenting further on Matthew 24 tomorrow.

But I wanted to leave this post tonight with the hope of Romans 8 [from Blue Letter Bible]:

Rom 8

Rom 8:1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Rom 8:10 And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.

Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Rom 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Rom 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together.

Rom 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope,

Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Rom 8:23 And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.

Rom 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

Rom 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, [then] do we with patience wait for [it].

Rom 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Rom 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?

Rom 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Rom 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth.

Rom 8:34 Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hearings On Radicalizing American Muslims [Update 2]

I watched most of the hearings today on the problem of how Islamic extremists are radicalizing American Muslims. Simply put, terrorist-related organizations are turning American citizens into home-grown terrorists.

Jay Sekulow of the ACLJ put it bluntly in an email that I received today regarding the hysteria surrounding those who are against these hearings:

There is no greater threat to our safety and the safety of our homeland than a radicalized American citizen intent on doing us harm.

For having the boldness to bring this emerging threat to light and trying to conduct a civil and rational discussion about this significant threat, the Homeland Security Committee Chairman, Representative Peter King, has been accused of racism, McCarthyism, and more. The ACLU and several other liberal groups have been trying to stop this hearing in the name of political correctness.

This is not about offending a group of American citizens - this is about understanding the clear and present danger that radicalized Muslim American citizens pose to our nation.

I watched the proceedings via the Fox News Channel live stream at their site on the Internet. I was absolutely riveted when the man whose son became gradually radicalized "under his family's radar screen." By the time they saw how much he had changed, it was too late.

It is so unfortunate that liberals at the hearing had to pull the same old political correctness stunts and disparage and harass those who did not deserve to be bashed. I, for one, am so glad that this problem is finally seeing the light of day and will be addressed over the course of several additional hearings on the issue.

Any thoughts from those of you who saw the hearings? Did you see it all or just some clips of what was said?


Update 3/11/11:

There was something about that Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison, that made me think he was shedding crocodile tears during his testimony at the hearings yesterday. It turns out that my intuition was correct!

Read this:

Gateway Pundit: HORRIBLE… Rep. Ellison’s Sobbing Jag at Radical Islam Hearing Was All Based On a Lie (Video)

I sincerely hope he gets called out on it by Congressman King at the next hearing. What a LIAR Ellison is!


Also, be sure to read:

Short answer: "Because they are the radicalization problem."

Read the eye-opening article!

No Date? Hmmm.....

It is good to know that there are still several investigators doing important work on the Obama ineligibility issue. Please go to My Very Own Point of View: It's a Date and read what has been discovered MISSING in the actual Birth Index 1960-1964 at the Dept. of Health in Honolulu, HI.


What this material will show absolutely is that there is more than one reason to be concerned with the actual Birth Index 1960-1964 that the public is allowed to view at the Department of Health, Honolulu Hi.

You must read the whole thing and view the copies made of the birth index pages.

Through the Lens Of God's Word [Update]

Received the March issue of Coral Ridge Ministries' "Impact" newsletter in the mail yesterday. These newsletters are brief but often very informative.

This morning, there was a spam post in my comment box. It was an invitation to link my blog with someone who posts about astrology. I politely declined the invitation, but welcomed the spammer to continue reading here at this blog. It is my hope that she, perhaps, will be inclined to read the Bible and learn about Jesus Christ.

On the back of the Impact newsletter, there was a commentary that was adapted from Dr. James Kennedy's (who is now deceased) message entitled: "The Christian World and Life View." I would like to share that message with readers today.

In the center of the essay, there is a box that reads:

"A biblical worldview is one in which all of life is viewed through the lens of God's Word."

What a great quote! And you will most likely notice my title for this post came from that quote.

As you read Dr. Kennedy's message, I would like to challenge you to think about all of the turmoil that is now going on here in the United States as well as all around the world. Also, for those who have been following the Glenn Beck** program and conservative talk radio, see if you don't see a distinct repetition of a pattern emerging from what Dr. Kennedy mentions in history. Has communism suddenly become "cool" to our young people who have been brainwashed by liberal/progressive/socialist/communist "red diaper doper babies" of the sixties who became today's majority of professors in thousands of liberal colleges and universities around our nation? Can you recognize how being "divorced from God" has created a moral vacuum in the hearts and minds of many people today?

I can't even imagine living apart from God in today's world of chaos. The Bible has warned us of what is to come "at the end of the age" and we are witnessing an enormous amount of Bible prophecy coming to fruition over the past 60 years. Israel rising again as a nation was prophesied in the Bible hundreds of years before it happened. Almost all of the 300 or so prophecies which were given by the Old Testament saints in reference to the coming Messiah were fulfilled by Jesus Christ. The remainder of those prophecies will be fulfilled at His Second Coming.

The Bible tells us:

Mat 28:17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

Jesus informed us:

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

Mat 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Mat 28:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

What could be better than knowing that Jesus Christ, is "with you [us, me] always, even to the end of the age?"

In contrast, the non-believer, who lives apart from God often experiences what Dr. Kennedy describes here:

" finds himself in a state of morbid decay and despair. He becomes nihilistic as he becomes aware of the logical consequences of his view. He concludes that life is not worth living. There is a deep void in the pit of his soul."

But let's start at the beginning of Dr. Kennedy's essay:

The Christian World and Life View
Commentary from Dr. Kennedy

Weltanschauung--that is probably not a phrase one would be intimately familiar with, and yet everyone has a "Weltanschauung." It's a German term which means world and life view. Simply put, a world and life view, or worldview, is a set of assumptions or presuppositions that determine the way we look at the world and our place in it. It determines how we view reality and everything that comes down our path.

A biblical worldview is one in which all of life is viewed through the lens of God's Word. There are many worldviews arrayed against this Christian view.

Naturalism, for instance, is the idea that nature is all there is--that there is nothing in the universe but matter (materialism). This worldview was promoted by Carl Sagan, an evolutionist and naturalist. On his famous ten-part educational TV series entitled Cosmos, Sagan made this clear statement: "The cosmos is all there ever was, or is, or is to be." That worldview is purely naturalistic, materialistic, and atheistic.

Chuck Colson in his book, How Now Shall We live? says that many of the battles in our culture stem from a conflict between worldviews. He says, "The culture war is not just about abortion, homosexual rights, or the decline of public education. These are only skirmishes. The real war is a cosmic struggle between worldviews -- between the Christian worldview and the various secular and spiritual worldviews arrayed against it."

One worldview that rages against the Christian view, and which has arisen since the French Enlightenment of the 1780's, is rationalism*--the idea that reason is the only source of knowledge and understanding. It rules out entirely any faith in God or His Word.

Additionally, Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species, published in 1859, provided a comprehensive worldview in evolution that made atheism palatable for the first time. Darwin's evolutionary view has been promulgated in Western society in the last 150 years like few things have.

This Darwinian worldview helped set off World Wars I and II; gave rise to communism, which, according to The Black Book of Communism, put to death some 100 million people, and fueled Nazism and Fascism.

While the atheistic worldview says "down with God," humanism says, "up with man"--but the end is the same: man is elevated in place of God, and God is abased.

That counters what Christians have always believed--that God is the measure of all things; that God tells us what is good and bad, right and wrong. He directs the very course of our life. In humanism, man is divorced from God. And that has led to catastrophic consequences.

Because he lives apart from God, man finds himself in a state of morbid decay and despair. He becomes nihilistic as he becomes aware of the logical consequences of his view. He concludes that life is not worth living. There is a deep void in the pit of his soul.

How far removed that is from the Christian world and life view, which says God has made us in His image; that He has placed eternity in our hearts and has given His own Son to redeem us from our sin. We have a glorious calling "to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever," and to be co-workers of Christ in the redemption of the world. Life is filled with meaning and purpose. This Christian worldview is glorious beyond understanding. I pray it is yours.

- Adapted from Dr, Kennedy's message: "The Christian World and Life View."

* Some thoughts to consider about "rationalism." Logical reasoning is not an absolute law which governs the universe. Logic is not a set of rules which govern behavior. When one's view only explains how to use logic, you must decide whether logic is the right tool for the job. There are other ways to communicate, discuss, and debate.

** Some of my Christian friends have expressed some concern about my interest in Glenn Beck's TV program. There is no need for this concern. I am well aware that Glenn is a Mormon (and as Brannon Howse in this video link states), could also be guilty of EMBRACING NEW AGE THEOLOGY and possibly be deemed as A UNIVERSALIST.

I see Glenn as a news analyst who has an uncanny ability to discover and share what is going on in our current political world. I DO NOT EMBRACE HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

But at the same time, Beck has given a voice (on several episodes of
his show) to some genuine biblical Christian leaders, pastors, and authors (for
example, promoted Dr. David Jeremiah's book "The Coming Economic Armaggeddon").
At least that is one good thing that is happening as a result of his large TV

However, the fact that he also embraces Ghandi and universalistic
ideas shows that he himself is probably not a biblical, born again Christian.

We can continue to pray for genuine salvation through Jesus Christ for Glenn. We can also appreciate what he contributes to our nation through sounding the alarm bells about Obama's dangerous socialist agenda and why we cannot let such terrible policies stand or continue past 2012.

I am grateful to Brannon Howse and his indepth analysis and warnings about Glenn's religious beliefs in the video he created at the above link.

Remember Who Holds You Today

I once heard a descriptive quote in the cartoon movie called "The Prince of Egypt" that described what God is building here on this earth can be seen as a beautiful tapestry, perfect in every way, from the perspective of heaven. Yet, here on earth we can only see the underside of jumbled threads, colors and knots that cannot reveal the finished product. I thought that was a great description of our imperfect, sinful, human struggles here on earth. Yet, in eternity, all of the "whys," "what ifs," "how comes," "why me," "why not me," "why him/her," "hows," "whens," "wheres" and "whats" that we encounter in this life that often become questions for God; will be finally revealed to us. We just have to remain patient, even when we do not comprehend or understand all of the "whys" of this world.

You can be sure that evil, sin, and death are the causes of much pain, grief, sadness, crying and suffering. Whatever we, as Christian believers, can do to alleviate such sufferings for the sakes of others, can be counted as good. But we can't expect to do it all. It would be way too overwhelming. What we can do within our sphere of influence, should be done for the sakes of those who are in our lives at the moment and those in need around us who need help.

In the chapter entitled, "Remember Who Holds You" in Max Lucado's book, Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make a Difference, Max writes:

Frightening thing, this pride. It would rather kill the truth than consider it.

Doesn't it sneak up on us? We begin spiritual journeys as small people. The act of conversion is a humbling one. We confess sins, beg for mercy, bend our knees. We let someone lower us into the waters of baptism. We begin as self-effacing souls. Timid children who extend muddy hands to our sinless God. We relate to the thief on the cross, identify with David's forgiven adultery, and find hope in Peter's forgiven betrayal. We challenge Paul's claim to the chief-of-sinners title, wondering if anyone could need or treasure grace as much as we do.

We come to God humbly, no swagger, no boasts, no "all by myself" declarations. We flex no muscles and claim no achievements. We cup sullied hearts in hands and offer them to God as we would a crushed, scentless flower: "Can you bring life to this?"

And he does. He does. We don't. He works the miracle of salvation. He immerses us in mercy. He stitches together our shredded souls. He deposits his Spirit and implants heavenly gifts. Our big God blesses our small faith.

[We] need a big God because we've made a big mess of our lives.

Boy...ain't that the truth! Who hasn't had to admit that they have "made a big mess" of something in their own lives? We all have had one or more experiences where we say, "I should have," "I could have," "I wish I did this, or that," or "I wish I DIDN'T DO THAT," haven't we? Some choices are much more profound than others and bother us for not having listened to the urging of the Holy Spirit guiding our lives. Been, there, done that. We suffer from guilty feelings.

Max Lucado goes on in that chapter to say that "gradually God changes us." It certainly doesn't happen in one felled swoop.

As God gradually changes us, we find that we don't want to do the sins that we used to do quite frequently in the past (and probably without guilt feelings before being saved.) But after being saved by Christ on the cross, His sacrifice for our sakes changes us forever. There is no turning back to that "old lifestyle." This isn't forced upon us, because we still have that sin nature and free will to carry it out if we want to. But our desire to please Him changes us and we look towards His righteousness to guide our lives. We look heavenward more.

Max goes on to say that our good deeds then can often get recognized by more people and if we aren't careful, can result in pride. The Bible warns us, "pride comes before a fall." We should never forget who brought us here. Max describes it this way:

"We think we're shaking up the world when actually we're just along for the ride."

Take time to remember. "look at what you were when God called you" (1 Cor. 1:26 NCV). Remember who held you in the beginning. Remember who holds you today.

Financial Terrorism of 2008 Revisited

Way back in 2008, me and my little ole' Talk Wisdom blog attempted to sound the alarm bells about the fact that the financial crisis which was happening in the Fall of that year, just months before election day, had appeared to be suspiciously planned by those on the left in order to get Obama elected.

During yesterday's T.V. show, Glenn Beck shared a brief but riveting review about a document that had been written back in 2009, but was only recently released by someone in the Department of Defense (DOD).

Do yourself a favor and watch the show at that link!

Written at Watch Glenn Beck site:

Tonight: If you've been a regular viewer of Glenn's TV program or a radio listener for the last several years, you know that he has been warning us about the perfect storm for quite a while now. The perfect storm occurs when all of the forces in the world who want to take America and capitalism down come together and hit us at the exact same time. You have the extremists, communists, Iran and others all out to get us at a time when we are so vulnerable and broken due to factors like our borders, debt, energy and financial crises, the war and even political correctness. What, if anything, can we do?
