When Politicians (Mis)quote the Bible

President Barak Obama misquoted the Bible.   He said, “I think the good book says don’t throw stones in glass houses.”

He added, “or make sure we’re looking at the log in our eye before we are pointing out the mote in other folks eyes.”

The proverb he meant to quote is “people who live in glass houses should not throw stones” a warning against hypocrisy, a big word for being a phony.  As usual when politicians quote a book about which they know little or nothing they do indeed look like phonies.

The word glass appears only twice in the Old Testament but it refers to mirrors, a common household item made of polished brass and used in the wash basins of the Tabernacle where the worshiper was required to examine his own sin in  a mirrored basin of water, to recognize his sin as preparation for God’s cleansing.  They were also popular as ladies mirrors as well.

I checked an English version of the Koran, which Obama actually does know, and there are a few references to glass, but that book was written much later in world history.

Cal Thomas, a long-time Christian whose word on such matters can be trusted, has a short column on Bill Clinton, Al Gore and others bringing Bible quotations into politics because they perceived that Republicans have a leg up on the topic. Thomas knows his Bible in any event.

Obama has simply misapplied the verse.  Hypocrisy has nothing to do with immigration policy. It is either a matter of Law or not.  There are only a few times when I think we can “separate church and state” and this is one!

President Obama would be better off remembering the modern version of this proverb. “People who live in glass houses (e.g. the White House) shouldn’t get stoned.”

Why Study History

Throughout history governments and individuals either succeed or fail due to how well or how poorly they manage the levels of power between them. So the smart student who does not want a pile of work studies history because it continues to repeat itself. They need only memorize the names of the leaders and their various nations and data which changes from decade to decade. Some smart math student could create an algorithm to show at what point this never ending conflict will move in a different direction. History does not know the word status quo.

Governments limit individuals, and individuals seek more liberty.

This is the conflict in a nutshell, balancing the strength of the individual and the long arm of the government. When there is no balance, the nation is out of whack. Every bureaucracy withdraws some liberty from the individual which does not make it wrong, unless it is too much liberty being given up or it was confiscated. The arguments against socialism include this quote from Ben Franklin,  “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Liberty lost is very hard to regain.

Every political contest involves these two elements

History shows this clearly. The lone cave dwelling human and his family is a government at the lowest level, but for any progress to be maintained, warfare against a predatory neighbor requires that these family units gather together to form a mutually advantageous group. To do this requires that each person give up to the group some authority, power, and of course money and resources. It requires a leadership team as well. If the team or the leader becomes too strong the society stagnates; if the enemies gain ascendancy, the society breaks up. So the larger the governmental unit, or the more prosperous in the case of the USA, the stronger that group is.

A closed society stays that way

For smaller societies constant mismanagement of resources and unrest keep it in failure mode. Afghanistan has been involved in war for 60 years and is going nowhere. They cannot or will not negotiate a balance between the bureaucracy and the individuals in spite of considerable involvement from other nations, both for good and for ill. It was illegal to teach women for example. The USA forces repeated efforts to stop that and start schools for girls met with guns and knives. This is in spite of well-documented proof that children raised by educated women are more successful than those who are not. But then today’s men would need to be educated before they would know that wouldn’t they? So a closed society stays that way, forever in poverty, isolated and legitimately afraid of their neighbors.

Participatory democracy balances interests

Governments that function best keep this in mind which is why participatory democracy works so much better. When people take part in their government they can cut it down when it gets out of hand. That explains the election President Trump and Boris Johnson.

Today institutions are under fire

Other nations are also seeing their citizens rebel against bureaucratic intrusion. The European Union might be blaming other nations for their inertia but their own institutional bias caused these problems. Some economic prophets say the EU will eventually end, or there will be European anarchy. It all depends on whether leadership comes to the fore to negotiate a peace. Today, 2019, across the planet citizens are increasingly resisting government intrusion and laws.

People locked into institutional mindsets scoff at the “populists” and right wing labels for everything they do not like but when you scrape away the paint, you find it is the age-old conflict between individuals and institutions. In Venezuela the bureaucracy and the army stayed put, and the population left. They became refugees to other nations. In Syria, the government simply bombed the citizens who questioned its behavior. The nation is a pile of rubble today. Both Iran and Saudi Arabia are in a standoff but both nations thought they could embrace and calcify the past. Can’t be done. Time marches on with or without you.

Literature confirms history

This is not new. The Greek drama Antigone (circa 440 B.C.E.) covers the same turf. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet shows how private lives were damaged by cultural considerations, which describes much of European history. The USA has managed to keep individualism front and center even though is has gone to extremes. For example, there is no scientific basis for gender reassignment and this will eventually collapse. It is individualism run amok. When individualism gets out of hand it is called anarchy which degenerates into civil war.

Imperialism is a form of war

Roman Imperialism, British Imperialism, Soviet Imperialism and now Chinese Imperialism all began as economic adventures and developed into chattel societies. All but the Chinese variety is gone, and even that is being tested.

The Pacific Rim is tired of being used; Vietnam was the first communist government to resist the long arm of Chinese presumption. Now Hong Kong is conducting its own, largely successful protest. Of course there are thugs and hooligans involved in all these conflicts because those loners just love a fight, but underneath there is real angst which must be corrected. The individual has suffered too long. The pendulum will swing back but today it is all about war against institutions.


Why History is superior

In my experience there is nothing scientific about Political Science. Politics is often called an art because the individuals must balance the competing interests of diverse and often intractable participants. The Bureaucracy Loving among us do not realize how difficult this is because they conceive as governments having always the bayonet to make their word stick. Individuals have no weapons but they have a voice. The Baltic States won their freedom in the 1990s by singing! They sang in unison and the Soviet masters were too cowed to take them on in spite of their tanks, guns and bayonets.

Investigations of corruption

Currently in the United States the hubris of the Washington Bureaucracy is increasingly under investigation – the CIA, the FBI and the DOJ all involved in an attempt to overthrow the presidency of Donald Trump. The evidence is mounting. Nervous journalists are wondering whether they can personally afford to touch this. Will it mean an end to their career? They could be too close to the bureaucracy and endanger their jobs.

You see how this works. The Deep State is an example of how institutions become enemies of their own governments and people. Many nations do not have corrective options in place. Because of American diversity and freedoms we can handle this kind of corruption, in spite of it taking a great deal of time.

The Prince of Peace

Finally, this blog is about the Mind of God. The Greek plays predate Christianity, so it is not a religious issue, unless you believe the government is God, and some do; or perhaps you believe each individual is god, and that happens as well.

The Bible clears this conflict up for the individual. In the world of the God directed person, God is the government. He makes the decisions based on an omniscient mind and directs the person in the way he or she should go. It is a tricky little dance to keep oneself in the will of God and skirt or affect as the case may be the world and its Institutional vs. Individual war. It means living in the multiverse of the spiritual about which I will have much to say in the future.

Slaughter of Babies – A Sign of Momentous Change

How do I know this?

After Joseph died as Chief Magistrate of Egypt there came to power a Pharaoh who had no regard for the Jews. He commanded:

Exodus 1:22 all his people, saying, “Every son who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.”

Exodus 2:1 -2 And a man of the house of Levi went and took as wife a daughter of Levi. 2 So the woman conceived and bore a son. And when she saw that he was a beautiful child (Moses), she hid him three months.

Moses is saved by the Pharaoh’s daughter and about 40 years later he returned to Egypt where he obeyed God and engineered the salvation of Israel from slavery and hailed as the revered savior of Israel.

Over a thousand years later Jesus is born in Bethlehem. When the King in Israel hears about another “King” being born, jealous and fearing loss of his power, he kills a large group of babies. History does repeat itself.

16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

18 “A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more.”

I was once told Jews believe the number was 6,000 baby boys. 

Now, 2000+ years have passed and massive numbers of Muslim and Christian babies are being slaughtered in Syria, Iraq and in the Kurdish region, by Hamas using children as human shields, and when they can get away with it, even in Israel. 

One Child Policy is morphing around the globe

Across the planet it is girl babies being aborted because male children are better at earning money to pay for one’s parent’s old age.  This practice fails to consider that it will take an adequate number of females to provide children for those males. In some areas of China which has the largest gap between male and female populations there are fights over access to women. 

This is especially problematic in China where a Chinese man is expected to marry a Chinese woman. But women are smart enough to know they do not want to be regarded as a “brood mare” for society. Many educated Chinese women now simply eschew marriage altogether making the situation worse. Three of my Chinese co-workers were forced into marriage by panicky parents.

In the USA females are thriving and male children are decaying of neglect, inadequate education and preparation for adulthood because of fatherlessness. Both males and females are dying of drug overdoses caused by a number of factors, including greedy doctors and manufacturers, and this generation’s desire to avoid pain in any form and firmly believe there is no afterlife to prepare for.

World views produce governmental systems

Two forms of atheism lead to this indifference. True atheism believes that there is no afterlife; we are natural beings only. We are born, live and die, like animals and that is the end of the story.

Then there is practical atheism which recognizes all of the above but also sees no responsibility or accountability involved in being alive. Both lead to inertia and wasted lives.

Both forms lean towards socialistic societies which gives the government the authority to rule the private citizen so we now have worldwide an interest in socialism as a cure for the evils of society which the indifferent will embrace.  Both forms are essentially deterministic which allows the believer to enjoy blissful if erroneous inner peace. There is great satisfaction is saying evil does not exist, or it cannot touch me, and it doesn’t matter in the end anyway. An illusion like that can take over your whole mind and personality, a euphoric psychosis if you like demanding nothing but acquiescence.

Democratic systems, when parliamentary or representative, monarchies or theocracies all have inherent demands on the citizen which the worry-free-isms do not.

Bad theology, and that is what all this is, can somehow miss killing the infant in the womb and then through the generation of nonsense-happiness kill the rest of someone’s life. This is a society without a future.

Let’s Start Rethinking about Political Campaigns

Years ago God gave me a task – show people how to rethink, in my case, about the Bible, its contents and especially the nature and goals of God himself. I’ve done that now ten years. Today, 9/2019, I am reaching over 30,000 people a month, always rethinking in every question especially in secular ones where there is just as much confusion as in theological.

People do not know how to think

Here is an example. Recently we voted in a nationally recognized, wildly expensive campaign for Congress, the 9th Congressional District of North Carolina. The campaign was carried out in public, on television, mostly ads and news stories that were often very biased, no matter who was speaking. Social media was awash with it as well since it was a special election and few others running at least locally.

Bad law comes out of emotion

The campaign was designed to prevent the voter from thinking, or to replace his thoughts with emotions upon which no decisions are usually very good – and certainly not in politics. There are already too many laws based on temporary emotions which can change over night.

The Democrat was a typical Republican candidate – a successful entrepreneur, a business owner/employer, clean cut family man with a pretty blonde wife and two kids, a military veteran who supports lower taxes, and who managed never to call his opponent names which is sign of a honorable politician. But he lost.

Why? Here is the problem to rethink. While he was the better candidate which his campaign demonstrated, he was not running for the office of campaigner; he was running for a seat in Congress. The voters did not want a Democrat representing them, no matter how clean cut or conservative in nature. The national party at the present time does not reflect the mind of the voters in this jurisdiction. Sometime in the future, that may change. But just not today.

The voters got it right

The voters knew this and acted accordingly. But the campaign process ignores this need. The voters got it right in spite of the advertising and blather all around the campaign, not to mention the multi-millions in funds which came from across the land, all intent on electing a Campaigner not a Congressman.

We choose representatives not candidates

There is something very wrong with a political system that presents candidates when what we want is representatives. The man who won will reflect the mind of the voter when he goes to Washington DC, no matter how flawed he might be personally. He was not young and vigorous; he did have a pretty wife but who cares about the wife anyway. We are not voting for her. And she is not representing us. This man’s policies, and that of the people he will join with in Washington, not his personality or all the beautiful color photographs mean anything as he assumes his post.

What we vote for must be based on reality

What the voter needs is the assurance that the person holding the office will be able to reflect the will of the people, not the platform of a party or a group of lobbyists somewhere, in this case, 500 miles away. How can we change the campaign process to make it radically less expensive and more in tune with what voters needs to know? Will this man or woman do in the office they hold what I expect of them and what they have promised? This is going to be a hard issue to solve.

Church campaigns have the same flaws

And as a theologian I can also say that church membership presentations are also often off point. Who God is and what he does as Jesus Christ in the world today is the core of Christianity but you would not necessarily know this from church services or their advertisements or television programs. Thankfully there are many varieties of them reaching diverse people. This is healthy.

We choose our religion based on personal needs

Individuals attach themselves to religious systems based on private needs. Some want family, friends and social acceptance; others seek inner peace and assurance. Others are concerned with the world and its dysfunctions and they view the church in its mission. My daughter-in-law wants a choir, with robes. I agree with her but so many of the modern churches do not have this anymore. Singles need church dinners and fellowship events. People in wheel chairs need to see no curbs or stairs; parents want good child care with honest teaching about the gospel and no Easter Rabbit theology where God is missing altogether.

The truth is offensive

Churches may meet all of these needs but still have no honest gospel to present, filled with compromise in order “not to offend anyone.” The gospel is offensive. Jesus said, Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Is Jesus picking a fight? Sounds like it.

But no, He is saying that we are happy when we are with people where we feel comfortable but the truth of God is ultimately in what God said in His word about our condition and his solutions. Confusing Church with Faith can lead us into a position of comfort that is not realistic. Real faith will cause us to be separated from some people, systems and places.

God is pro-active about us. We need to be proactive about Him. We need to be as careful about our vote for religion as we are for our representatives.

Media Censorship is Narcissism

The Censors seem to think hate speech which they so rigorously cull has some legal validity. It does not.

Much of social media, Facebook, Quora, the news media, Big City newspapers, Google, Amazon, TV giants etc. censor what God has said and what religious people repeat in public calling it “hate speech.” China has gone after its own thinking dissidents- the Falun Gong and the Muslims in the far west areas – with so-far largely unreported torture, death and extensive imprisonment. https://www.theepochtimes.com/china-putting-minority-muslims-in-concentration-camps-us-says_2908698.html

Hate speech is not a legal concept

What they call hateful content is simply what someone does not like or agree with it; this reduces public discourse to emotion rather than thought. Laws in every country are based on actions not words, nor that most annoying of words, “feelings.” If someone does not like the idea that homosexuality is a personal choice, so be it. It is not an action and it should be placed in the category of an emotional response. Emotions are personal.

There is no such thing as a hate crime

Emotions have no force if they stand alone. But when jealousy, greed, anger, hate, or revenge take a virulent form and become an action, then it has the force of law, but the law is what is punished, not the emotion. It is quite possible to spend an entire life time being envious and not steal a thing!

Emotions not acted upon are simply that. And for social media to treat them as actions is a sign of their inability to think something through, or they’re living in their own, private opinions. Censorship is proof that someone is allowing his emotions to rule him. By extension media/corporate censorship and public disapproval is an extension of juvenile thinking patterns into the adult world. This explains why many adults are returning to childlike joys. https://www.theepochtimes.com/why-adult-recess-is-becoming-a-trend_3054765.html

On a grand scale, China is a nation of 1.3 billion censored people where the national police use face recognition software to identify Christians who attend church or anti-communist protests. From that information they can jail them or perhaps get them fired from their jobs.

Law is not the issue; their censorship is based in an emotion – in this case they fear that the public will rise up against the Communist system and select a better government. Communists have every good reason to believe this. Communists are not popular, they make five times as much money as non-communist workers and they answer to no one, or fancy as such.

The Falun Gong can completely change China

A major force for change is the spiritual group the Falun Gong which is challenging the mind control of the Communist system. It is a method of living spiritually based on Buddhist principles. The reason the Communist bosses fear it so much is that it has its origin in the Han People.

Communism as political narcissism

Christianity has always been called a white man’s religion so it was easy to be rejected by the entire community. But not so Falun Gong, which is native born. This religious group and the Hong Kong Protesters are the best omen that we will see the Communist system crack. The rest of the world will reap great benefits if China is freed to become one of the good nations.

Narcissism places the emotional self in charge

Rule by fear is at the core of dictatorship and an emotion that becomes legal in the hands of those with illegitimate power; no one is happy over that. Likewise, social media has placed their fear of being wrong over as well as their overwhelming notion that they are right over against the public’s opinion and commitments to something other than their own self-absorbed philosophy.

It’s juvenile; that’s what children do – they place their own welfare over everyone else. And of course it angers them so they lash out; consider the words incensed and censor and censorious in the same breath!

The moral law is not based on “feelings”

Narcissism applies to pedophiles, drunks, prostitutes and others who violate moral laws, since laws are based in actions not emotions. In the same vein there is no such thing as a hate crime because hate is an emotion not an action. To say that someone is guilty of a hate crime is an oxymoron.

Laws are about actions

Murder is an action; attempted murder and assault are actions; jealousy is an emotion but killing your rival is called murder. You do not even need to hate him or her. The criminal may hate something as well, but it cannot be measured. Greed, avarice, lust, anger, malice, evil, gossip and other sins of the personality cannot be measured so neither can they be quantified into law. Actions can be measured and the law recognizes these differences. The judge who is pronouncing sentence calls these extenuating circumstances. The judge doesn’t care.

Children live in an emotional world

And that is why we do not give children the keys to the car or the right to vote. Laws, not emotions, rule nations and determine how society is structured and managed. And touchy, personal responses are just that. Social media by censoring opinion demeans itself, and reduces itself to the level of children who live in an emotion-dominated world. It takes an adult to see the world in the impersonal terms of law, the place where problems are solved.

Emotion-driven children who live at the level of personal opinion cannot solve problems. And eventually the issue of so much media/corporate censorship will need the attention of the Supreme Court.

Why has Evangelism in the Pacific been so Slow?

It started in the Philippines

American Christians got lucky in the Philippines. After the USA took over the Philippines as a result of the Spanish-American war, the Filipinos hated the American managers. Most Americans do not like being imperialists; they’d rather be at home on their ranches or reveling in big cities lights and drama than off in some backwater, no matter how fresh the bananas and coconuts or cheap the labor.

But World War 2 changed that entirely. The Japanese were vicious tyrants so when the Americans drove them out of the islands, the Filipinos rejoiced and became pro-America. In fact many families were allowed to emigrate to the USA based on their service to the war effort. All this made the evangelization of the islands easier. The Roman Catholics were the original western European religious workers but they were so woven into state politics, the common man was not happy with Catholicism.

It continued in South Korea

Again, as a result of the Korean War, Christianity became entrenched in that nation and now the Koreans are the strongest Christian group in the Pacific Rim. But they are not friends with China and most of the other nations, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos and Vietnam areas despite strong trading partnerships.

Why Christianity faces its main foe

So for the rest of the Pacific Rim there is a problem. The Christian faith requires repentance. Repentance is not merely regret, remorse, or even feeling sorry about what you did. We all have regrets but in most cases we want the regrets to go away, and keep the lifestyle that imprinted them on our personalities. Full repentance means never committing those sins again not just confessing them as past events.

True repentance acknowledges God as creator of the universe and that you, the human being, need to recognize that you are separated from God because of your attitude and behavior. That kind of attitude does not mean you must expose a life of depravity and sin, only that you see yourself in relationship to the divine as needing a change of personhood. Some evangelists call this The Exchanged Life. Jesus died that you might life and become more like him.

Losing face

In stark contrast is the mind of the oriental who believes the greatest shame and personal angst is to “lose face.” Those of us in Western nations do not have a sense of what this entails.

As an example of losing face, there was the 2008 report of a Muslim taxi driver in Texas murdering his two teenagers because, apparently, they dated some American boys. https://jonathanturley.org/2008/01/05/texas-officials-investigate-whether-fathers-shooting-of-two-daughters-was-a-muslim-honor-killing/

It appears that the Islamic community protected this man and he has never been brought to justice. To American ears the idea that anyone would think he had the right to kill anyone, much less his own children because they brought shame on his name is unthinkable, even insane.

The male public image

But to Oriental minds, especially males, anything that makes them look bad in front of their peers is called losing face, no matter how true the accusation may be, no matter how minor the accusation or irrelevant.

Christianity, as well as the American Declaration of Independence, says we believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. First in the series is life. No one had the right to take another’s life; it’s a longstanding tenet of Western common law.

So now translate this to China or Japan. The very idea that someone would confess their inadequacies, much less real violations of the civil or moral law, is madness.

Here is what is required

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

A list of possible sins

Galatians 5:19-24 The Message (MSG)

19-21 It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community.

Looking at this list you’d suppose it can’t happen in China and yet today there are 100,000,000 dedicated Chinese who have done this. They are separate, silent, and hidden, but they have taken this chance with God.

And God can use them. He managed to turn the world around with only 11 disciples and one savior. He can do it again.

Blood Sacrifice and the Symbolism of the Death of Seal Team 6 (revised)

With Joe Biden running fir President it’s time to review some sorry information from the past, his revealing the names of Seal Team 6 which led to their murder. This allowed the men to be sacrificed.

https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/7/the-betrayal-of-the-navys-seal-team-6/?fbclid=IwAR2fOJjpDskECHE8shGF1WoXw4qo_XCeW-2cqgZa7jjnv18jEOq4RJRug-Q

Dream interpretation, symbolism and visions are all forms of non-verbal communication (as are music and movies) but they contain messages none-the-less. Frequently we ignore them or spend a few minutes being puzzled and then give up. They need to be analyzed, identified and understood.

Certain basic rules apply. You don’t match apples with oranges; for example, a dream about an animal will not refer to a building unless that building’s logo is an animal. (Geico as an example.)

Biblical Symbolism goes back thousands of years

The Judeo-Christian Bible is a good start because it is the oldest book on this topic and because the symbolism has been well tested over the years. A notable example which has modern application is the sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham 3,500 years ago. (Genesis 22) It is the portrait of the later sacrifice of Jesus and a warning and example of why we are not to sacrifice our children.

Blood Sacrifice for appeasing an angry God

Blood sacrifice is a long-standing principle in all societies. Let us apply this to a modern situation. Soon after Barak Obama ordered the death of Osama Bin Laden a group of terrorists “sacrificed” members of the Seal Team 6 – the group which carried out the assassination. See Deaths of Seal Team 6 Exposed

This was not merely revenge but that they provided Allah, their god, with a blood sacrifice. But who noticed? As far as I can tell, practically no one. But that is the core of any interpretation – the meaning of events. Islamic fundamentalists see this as a sacrifice to Allah since he is the source and destiny of their political religion. It also occurred on August 6, 2011, a Saturday, the high holy day for the Jews. Even though Seal Team members were probably mostly Christian, Muslims still think of their main enemy as Jews. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/aug/9/kuhner-who-betrayed-navy-seal-team-6/ The Taliban took the credit for the hit.

Abortion also is a blood sacrifice

Blood sacrifice, e.g. abortion, is a continuing factor in modern societies from the 13 million per year in modern China to the 4 million a year in the USA, and is a legal or illegal factor in most other nations. It is a practice going all the way back to the Moabites of the Bible who sacrificed to Moloch, the god of child sacrifice. God’s warning to them was that Israel was to wipe them off the face of the earth. Judging by the statistics above that hasn’t happened yet.

Since the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob does not accept child sacrifice, someone else does – Satan. The practice obligates us to him. By-the-by, he feels no such obligation to reward us. Our ignorance of these matters is of no concern. Like a small child who accidentally eats a chili pepper, the innocent act in no way affects the painful outcome – a burned mouth.

5 Principles of Islam

Obama’s flag (see Symbolism – What does Obama’s new flag mean?? http://wp.me/p1otAF-8M) contains a reference to the blood sacrifice which is a core belief in Islamic fundamentalism. – the voluntary death of the believer to please Allah and reach heaven with its carnal rewards. The horizontal stripes on his flag represent the 5 principles of Islam all won with the blood of martyrs, or of infidels. Islam believes and practices the theology which requires either the conversion or death of the infidels – that is, anyone who disagrees with them. Their martyrs’ deaths are proof of their sincerity.

The Sacrifice for Sins already paid

Judaism and Christianity unqualifiedly reject this theology believing the blood sacrifice has already been made – for the Jews at their High Holy Days, and the Christians in the sacrifice of Jesus. That puts these two groups at the top of the Islamic hit list. Jesus warns (Luke 21:20) But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near” so keep your eyes on Israel.

If all this seems arcane to you it is not to the middle eastern mind which has dominated this generation. For Muslims the year they were thrown out of Spain (1492) is just as real as yesterday. That was the same time that Christopher Columbus headed to the new World as a Christian missionary, a fact not often recognized. https://www.amazon.com/Light-Glory-1492-1793-Gods-America/dp/0800732715/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+light+and+the+glory+peter+marshall&qid=1561718841&s=books&sr=1-1 

Christopher Columbus was a Christian evangelist

Columbus’ first name means in Greek “Christ bearing” and the explorer received permission to take his crew to the “Indies” for the express purpose of evangelism. The fact that he was replaced by Spanish soldiers who brought with them venereal and European diseases does not negate his own better motives.

Islamists believe that they will rule the whole world so of course they want back into Spain. Their theology trumps every other concern. . The fervor of the military mission is enhanced by their 500 year failure to make any appreciable progress. Other than infiltrating many societies they have not managed to establish Sharia Law in any but those nations already committed to Sharia.

A culture that embraces death cannot breathe life into society.

Germany, England, and France originally welcomed Muslims but have changed their minds, seeing the obdurate refusal to accept any of the principles by which these European societies live. That Muslim nose in the tent was a mistake. And where Muslims have infiltrated they have not improved the society. They remain an isolated group, unwilling to change.

Victor David Hanson of the Hoover Institution (http://victorhanson.com/) has good comments on why this failure has motivated them to fight harder.

President Obama set the tone for a Muslim leader

Back to Mr. Obama. Media people were puzzled that his reaction to the death of the ambassador in Libya was so indifferent. He reacted as though it was none of his concern. And truly it is not if he considers himself “resident” of a state, America, which will be subsumed into the Islamic takeover. He flies another flag. The following picture shows a non-verbal verification of this.

But he does pledge the Russian flag. He and his wife do not put their hands over their heart when watching others say the pledge – they do not pledge. Their hands go over their right lung. They are citizens of another country. This is all non-verbal information, hence symbolism.

The America flag does not appear when Obama is speaking from the Oval Office.

With that in mind the “terrorists” who took down the twin towers on 9/11 are actually just helping to bring about the world government of Islam. The terrorists, who attacked the embassy and burned the flag, were not burning Obama’s flag, so why would he stand by America and its employees? If the Terrorists are bringing in the new world government why would Obama, their new leader, condemn them? They are doing Allah’s will.

Candidate Obama told the Media before he was elected that he wanted a society of government control, redistribution of assets, which means rich people will leave and the remaining citizens left will be poor- equally poor. https://www.amazon.com/Dreams-My-Father-Story-Inheritance/

All of his plans are in his autobiography.  Mr. Obama placed environment above the interests of people, poverty has increased, joblessness has increased, all part of the leveling process integral to Islamic fundamentalism. Like Marxist China, none are rich (except the rulers) and all others are poor – that is the meaning of equality: Equally in want. I worked and lived in China and that is what they have – and they don’t like it.

Why Americans Must Support Israel

Boycotting Israel – the Ultimate in Antisemitism

Why Pres. Trump is called “Cyrus”

A welk known Texas minister said last year, “What the public wants now is prophecy.” Well there is plenty of it.

The public wants prophecy

It started in the USA but the idea that God has appointed Donald Trump as a modern day political figure like Cyrus of the Old Testament was picked up also by Israel. Applauded by Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli leasers, they renamed a section in honor of President Trump even calling him a modern Cyrus. Trump is hailed as a prophet and blessing to the nation. https://www.theepochtimes.com/israel-unveils-new-settlement-named-trump-heights-on-golan_2965819.html

Trump as warrior for Israel

In the USA a book was published prior to the 2016 election predicting Donald Trump’s surprising win. https://www.amazon.com/Gods-Chaos-Candidate-American-Unraveling/dp/0998216402/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=god%27s+chaos+candidate&qid=1567425961&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Trump’s win had also been predicted by well known Christian evangelist/musician and South African prophet Kim Clement in 2007; Clement died 15 days after that election.

https://godinanutshell.com/2017/01/26/kim-clement-the-last-prophecy-of-kim-clement/

I supported Clement financially early in 2002 and remember hearing this prophecy in 2007. So, it is well documented. Most people can find it on line at the House of Destiny.com. The usual atheists don’t buy this but that is not new and should surprise no one.

What the Bible says about Trump/Cyrus?

Isaiah 45 Common English Bible (CEB)
Cyrus as God’s anointed
45 The Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus,
    whom I have grasped by the strong hand,
    to conquer nations before him,
    disarming kings,
    and opening doors before him,
    so no gates will be shut:
I myself will go before you,
    and I will level mountains.
I will shatter bronze doors;
    I will cut through iron
 bars.
I will give you hidden treasures of secret riches,
    so you will know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
For the sake of my servant Jacob and Israel my chosen,
    I called you by name.
I gave you an honored title,
    though you didn’t know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    besides me there is no God.
I strengthen you—
    though you don’t know me—
so all will know, from the rising of the sun to its setting,
    that there is nothing apart from me.
I am the Lord; there’s no other.
    I form light and create darkness,
    make prosperity and create doom;
    I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Pour down, you heavens above,
    and let the clouds flow with righteousness.
Let the earth open for salvation to bear fruit;
    let righteousness sprout as well.
    I, the Lord, have created these things.

Notice: The point of this passage is that God takes responsibility for putting Donald Trump (Cyrus) in office. Is this a reincarnation of the Biblical Cyrus? Absolutely not. The Bible says that these men come in the “spirit of” a forerunner, as it does of Elijah and John the Baptist.

http://Luke 1:17 He will go forth before the Lord, equipped with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will turn the hearts of fathers back to their children, and he will turn the disobedient to righteous patterns of thinking. He will make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Other writers have jumped on the topic as well.

Why does Trump appear invincible

All attempts to discredit and remove Trump from office have failed. But no matter, his foes continue without a let-up. And his foes have faced embarrassment and shame in many cases. https://wouldyouconsider.net/2019/07/01/what-energizes-the-media-hate-machine/

Don’t expect it to stop. There is a lot of profit in sex trafficking, higher taxes, and the abortion industry and the promotion of illegals’ entry into the USA which keeps many agencies and NGOs afloat financially.

God is protecting his appointee

One of the major blessings of being a Christian is knowing that when you are in the center of God’s will, his appointed or anointed one, no matter whether for a great task or a small, you have his complete attention and protection. The various cadre of atheists and self-appointed experts in things-political can’t picture this because God and His will aren’t involved in their own daily decision making.

But the bottom line here is that in the end they will all be spinning their wheels if they continue on this negative course. Christians prayed that someone would turn America around and it is happening.

The voters prove it.

Don’t say ISIL, say ISIS

President Obama insisted on calling the terrorists ISIL instead of ISIS because of his contempt for Israel, our treaty partner.

Why? We are at war with ISIS and other Islamic States. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

ISIL includes Israel

But, ISIL means the ISIS area as well as the Levant region which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus and part of southern Turkey.

We are not at war with Israel – ever. It is the fatherland of the Christian faith and the only democracy in the Middle East. And we should be cautious about Turkey which is our sometime-friend.

Wikipedia has more on this subject.

ISIS is an Egyptian goddess

Lastly, ISIS is an Egyptian goddess, and we certainly don’t have any love of false religion, even the kind that doesn’t kill off its enemies.

European Mismanagement Influenced America

Americans are so separate from the rest of the world and so absorbed with our own problems we cannot imagine the world of 1700 out of which our little nation grew. While Europeans were wearing powdered wigs and overindulging and getting richer as the poor got poorer the  American colonists they called hicks, were educating themselves in the classics, learning Latin, Greek and common law, studying Shakespeare’s plays, and speaking French.

Lessons from those who escaped Europe

Here are the lessons those farmers, soldiers and merchants were learning. First, you do not want a leader from one family. There was intermarriage in European families which resulted in medical problems like King George 3rd who probably suffered from a blood disease known as porphyria, or one we know so well -Toulouse Lautrec who suffered the stunted growth of the marriage of first cousins.

Many middle eastern nations today can point to 1500 years of intermarriage, common for Muslims. Insanity is only one of the possible outcomes of this. We can be glad King George was ill as a more vigorous English King might have won our revolutionary war.

Second, the Americans learned that no group of powerful people should select the nation’s leader.  Oligarchies provided the unfortunate Italians with Nero and Diocletian who left their nation in moral and economic shambles.

The influence of Shakespeare

Third, they knew their Shakespearean plays, which the 15th century Brits were ribald soap operas based on English history. When Will wrote the tragedies of various Kings, Richard, and a group of Henrys, British play goers saw the history of their nation through these dramas and 200 years of Royals murdering each other’s children or other rivals. Hunchback Richard had two young cousins murdered in their beds.

Other rivals found themselves in the Tower of London, last stop before a beheading. The result was years of unrest and the constant threat of war with European nations, especially France. Blood and gore makes for good theater but not for daily life.

The issue of political succession Americans solved

This issue is one of succession – who will take over after the current leader dies or leaves office? The US Constitution mandates a smooth transfer of power. Of all the unique factors about the Constitutions the peaceful succession is uncommon in other parts of the world. Think of the mess Venezuela is in right now. If you do not have a peaceful route for succession you face the possibility of a war at the end of every political leader, which is what ore than often happens.

Fourth, a state-mandated religion caused conflict. Henry the 8th we’ve all heard about – he rid himself of 6 wives all because the Roman Catholic church’s Pope said he could not divorce a wife.  But Henry wanted a male heir.

Henry the 8th would be surprised

After all these years and wives, God had the last laugh.  A daughter survived and Queen Elizabeth the First managed to give some stability to her nation.  But the conflict between religions continued.  The only cure would be freedom of religion for all, which the wise Americans made not the 2nd or the 3rd amendment to the Constitution, but the first!

Who spends of taxes, divided authority

The fifth issue involved money. Monopolies lead to unchecked power so leaders with unlimited authority take as much money as they can, (these days they just print it) impoverish the nation, and finance wars, always fought by other people, that is, the people who are not national leaders. To mitigate this the Constitution divides authority into three sections, administration, judicial and legislative.

Then the Legislature is also divided into two parts in most states. This arrangement forces officials on both sides to compromise and if everyone wants the best for the country the result is fairly good law and management. This works so well other nations have copied it.

Individual freedom

Seventh, people as individuals must be free to speak, assemble to form clubs and organizations, and to read newspapers and other media without government inference, and be free to move from one state to another.  Only during wartime are their any constraints on the media. There are many “democracies” in the world today but most of them have a controlled press (Russia, China, North Korea), no secret ballot and no ability to move to the city to take a job.

Germany had a state financed Lutheran church until after World War 2. Great Britain still has no “bill of rights” as we do. Many nations are strictly Muslim – Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, and many others. Only state-sanctioned Christian churches are permitted in China and certain doctrinal requirements demanded.  For example, Christian Pastors must teach that all people go to heaven which is absolutely not part of the Holy Bible. No Christian material can be printed in China and the rules against Christians are becoming more onerous, even to the burning down of churches.

We are right to conclude that the world wants to flee their home country for America when you consider how peaceful it is in comparison to other nations but it only works if they leave their failing systems behind and accept and adjust to a new way of viewing government.

There is a good bit of activity these days to change the Constitution without realizing that every change brings back a problem that was originally recognized and addressed by the Congress that wrote it originally. Socialism, for example, does not work because it allows a reward for indolence. If our forefathers can learn from others’ mistakes, so should we. https://www.theepochtimes.com/why-the-magna-carta-still-matters_2948673.html

July 4, 2019 How to Pray for Your Country

At some point in the 20th century the churches told their members not to spend time in politics. And just to make sure, President Lyndon Johsnon promoted and passed the Johnson Amendment preventing ministers and churches from preaching politics from the pulpit, a clear violation of the 1st Amendment. That amendment is still on the books and President Donald Trump has it on his do list to get it repealed. You can pray that is repealed.

Meanwhile the Devil was listening and thought, “Hey, I have plenty of people I can run for office,” and the results we see now in legislation and Supreme Court decisions violating the basic principles of both the Jewish law and Christian life. God has not given human beings the right to change His laws for our convenience or opinion. Marriage is still between one male and one female, and DNA now clearly defines who is male and who is not.

If you can’t believe the Bible you might believe science.

Thinking yourself transgender does not make it so. Ask people who diet all the time – Does thinking you are thin actually work? Life is not about our emotions, what we feel, or even what we hope. Life is about what is. We can change our lives by bringing ourselves under the reality of a loving God.

Prayer for America

Many Americans have lost their grip on the truth so here is a prayer for the salvation of our nation.

  • Ask God to protect our leaders (even the ones we don’t like, or who are warring against us) to gain wisdom about the whole picture and guard against those who would destroy our nation from within.
  • Ask God to turn our public schools around from social experiments back to places of learning the skills to be winners in life. Ask God to expose the wrong books which have encouraged sexual license for young people and other deviant behavior. Pray for the teachers; no amount of money can pay them for some of the stress they must endure.
  • Pray that churches will take up the responsibility of praying for the government to change the atmosphere of their communities as the Bible demands.
  • Pray that the millions of Americans who have been seduced into thinking sex, drugs, wealth, fame, and power are the route to personal happiness realize their folly before it is too late.
  • Ask God to tear down the giant monopolies in media, books, and TV that censor our thinking, news, ideas and personal relationships. We can think for ourselves.
  • Ask God to reveal to us all personally those areas where we have compromised with evil and need to change our thinking.
  • Pray that new, enlightened and passionately patriotic people will run for office regardless of the cost and slander they might face.
  • Pray that your state government will stop partisan and self-absorbed bickering and realize they are there for the general good, not their own careers.
  • Pray for the safety of your law enforcement people and their families. They live in fear that the angry and discontented mobs will rule the cities and make their job harder.
  • Pray that the millions of people worldwide trying to get to America to succeed turn around and return to their own nation where they can revolutionize their native land and make it great with God’s help. That is what we did 243 years ago. They can that too.

Explaining Islam – a 3,500 year old grudge match

The Bible records important dreams,, including Godly promises.God promised Abram, then childless, that he would be the father of thousands.  Abram got into a royal mess because he took a promise in a dream and tried to make it come true on his own. The temporary and consequently disastrous solution was to have a child through his maid.  That first son was Ishmael now the political religion of Islam.  15 years later the 2nd and  promised son Isaac is born – the real heir.

The Elder Son is Heir

In virtually every society but our own all lands, blessings and rewards go to the eldest son, not the younger Isaac; you see the problem.  Modern day Islam thinks it is entitled to the entire Abrahamic inheritance, especially the land of Israel.  And willing to strap bombs on their children to force the issue.  Islam is avenging itself because of something that happened 3,500 years ago, and the likelihood these people will change their minds is Zero.

Furthermore the land of Canaan goes to Isaac and his descendants, hence the battle over a tiny piece of land no bigger than New Jersey.  And Europe who tried to pretend for decades that it was so magnanimous and egalitarian is now on High Alert. When there are 600,000 million Muslims living large on huge pieces of property in the Middle East why are they fighting over this tiny piece of land?

Not only Islam is caught in this.  We are in no position to congratulate ourselves. Think of all those fabulous Obama-generated dreams we heard years ago, practically free health-care, an end to oil dependence, equality and jobs for all, a veritable utopia of promises, an end to secrecy, earmarks, political paybacks.  Surely anyone over the age of 18 knows there is no free lunch.

Who were we kidding.

 “The heart of man is evil above all things and desperately wicked.”  Jeremiah 17:9  Wherever there is war, confusion, poverty, and self-righteousness there is the delusion about ourselves and our society.

It is incredibly simple.  That is why the problems in Israel dominate the whole world political system – the reason why antisemitism never seems to go away, even in Germany which surely after that disastrous World War II knows better. But that is the international war we are now fighting.

Why China’s Billions Cannot Take Over the World

Communist China fully believes that given its intense work ethic and one and a half billion citizens in addition to dominating the Pacific Rim the Chinese can also take over the economy of the entire world. This is a pipe dream. And millions of Christians love worrying about it as well. The devil always has us panicky about something doesn’t he? God tells us what to pray and when and sometimes why.

Rule by Fear

Let me explain. Communism is a self-defeating system because it is based on the principle of Rule by Fear. The Chinese people have a great deal of freedom in their own homes but beyond that, society is controlled at virtually every level. And fearful people cannot act as they would like.

Most importantly, opinion is monitored, free speech and freedom of movement are highly valued but not available. These are things we Americans hold so dear:

  • the freedom to own guns
  • a secret ballot
  • freedom to move around the country and change jobs
  • the ability to elect people and even more urgently
  • to also un-elect them when needed
  • a free press, and our press is free to lie, which it does a lot
  • freedom to go to church believing no one will enter your worship service to do you harm.

Freedom rules even if there have been limitations on public actions, such as during wartime. This freedom of choice allows individuals to meet economic and personal goals without interruption from the government.

China has none of these basic freedoms.

In contrast China spends a large amount of money watching its citizens and taking quick action to stop anyone who challenges the total authority of the Communist Party, or in anyway criticizes it. https://epochtimes.today/hong-kong-plans-second-mass-protest-against-extradition-amendments/

This is Rule by Fear, but what the outside observer does not realize is that those who rule by fear are themselves also ruled by fear.

Try to imagine that you are sitting at your computer doing your office work and you decide to send an email to a friend suggesting a particular program because it exposes government corruption. Within a short period of time you learn that someone “out there” has read your email and is coming to your office to question your interest in government corruption.

Yes, this might happen in the USA but the censor would not be the government but your boss, who wants to know why you are using company time for personal email, not that corruption is a problem. Your boss may want to watch that program too.

Censorship is everywhere and uses human capital unwisely

The level of censorship shows the rest of the world the level of fear. You do not monitor speech and emails, or the television and press if you are not covering something up. That means you feel guilt.

Recently President Xi of China (pronounced Shee) said he would remain in charge of the nation until he dies. We westerners call this a dictatorship. Someone should tell Mr. Xi that no person in history has been able to be a total ruler, successfully – that all have come to ruin.

https://epochtimes-ny.newsmemory.com/clip_article.php?token=1MTUxtbV39bGs3GTopOenp2ghZTI0srq0tCuoZPRlpukxt3Nysjik6aamnB4kqPDlZ%252FG0sHezp2aqpaYcW%252BUopOSo5iog5U%253D

The Chinese do not really believe the rules apply to them. Natural law, by which the western world has lived for 2+ millennia, says “you reap only what you sow,” that “arrogance leads to ruin.”

The Greeks understood government

The Greeks called this hubris and their plays are profiles of individuals whose heads got too big and their own flaws defeated them. Mao ZeDong, the cruel master who nearly destroyed China during the Cultural Revolution, once said that the God of America did not like the Chinese, that he liked the westerners. Mao spoke of going to heaven where a Chinese God, not The Most High God, would be in charge. Mao’s god was geographical, not universal. So Chinese people believe their nation can live by different rules than the rest of us.

Fear of loss of power, prestige and resources

If you are a ruler whose authority is dictatorial and not the product of a free people, of course you are afraid of losing your position, the power, the money and all the ego perks of ruling a society. Each element of censorship and control demonstrates to the observer that you have multiple fears, not just of fear, but of guilt. No one fears except at the point of guilt. The leadership fears the public simply because it already knows at a deep personal level that it is illegitimate.

Guilt causes additional fear

For your fun and enjoyment here is a list of words that if you put them in your speech or letters, emails, etc. you would find the Mind Control People at your door. No matter that you called your brother a Big Head, here they come!

Chinese people are smart and trained scholars. They show their distaste for communism with these code words:

  • shameless (不要脸)
  • go against the tide (倒行逆施)
  • drive backwards (倒车)
  • I oppose (我反对)
  • long live the emperor (吾皇万岁)
  • throughout the ages (千秋万代)
  • rule the world (一统江湖) — The line “throughout the ages, unify and rule the world” (千秋万代, 一统江湖) appears in Jin Yong’s martial arts novels, notably in “The Smiling, Proud Wanderer” (笑傲江湖), a story that has been widely adapted into television series and films. It is often used in adaptations of Jin’s stories as a slogan chanted by followers to show their loyalty to a cult-like leader.
  • incapable ruler (昏君)
  • ascend the throne (登基)
  • named emperor (称帝)
  • lifelong (终身)
  • reign title (年号)
  • recover one’s authority (复辟)
  • first year of an emperor’s reign (元年)
  • urge a power figure to formally seize the thrown (the writer means throne here) (劝进)
  • fengchan (封禅)  — Ceremony used to ensure dynastic fortune in a new era.
  • Yuan Big Head (袁大头)
  • crooked-neck tree (歪脖子树) — The tree which the Chongzhen Emperor is believed to have hanged himself from.
  • immortality (长生不老)
  • 1984
  • 500 years (五百年
  • great men sent from heaven (天降伟人)
  • slavery (奴隶制)
  • thousands of years (千秋万载)

That list is a small portion of what the Chinese leaders fear as they monitor their own emails and public speech. Leaders are guilty of slavery and their leaders are big heads. 1984 refers to mind control in the novel by that name. They fear being called Emperor because China has suffered under Emperors. And due to the Asian fear of “losing face” they fear being called shameless; they fear the public going against the tide; they fear being called incapable. And that fear filters down throughout the Communist Party to its workers and managers.

Chairman Mao was a generational failure.

Mao’s disastrous policies cost the Chinese people 50 years of progress; they might well be ahead of America today if things had not been so badly mismanaged. Is this what will happen to Emperor Xi?  Will he forget the lessons of history, that absolute power corrupts absolutely? Will he face decades of underlings in the power structure seeking to do him in, jockeying for position when their career ladder is taken away?

Xi and his comrades will spend a great deal of time and money trying to maintain his own personal safety and the swirl of insurrection around him.  Like Caesar, he may be stabbed in the back in public. And the general public will spend an inordinate amount of time trying to avoid the authorities, covering their tracks, watching what they say and do in public and if things get very bad, also in private.  All this energy takes away from the production of goods and service on which a prosperous economic base rests.  There is no peace in China except for small children.

But as the rule book of life says, “Peace. Peace. And there is no peace for the wicked.”

Witches vs. Trump & How to Dispatch Them

The BBC and other reliable news organizations have reported, starting in 2017, an international process of cursing our President by self-proclaimed witches.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39090334

These people don’t go away simply because we don’t take them seriously. This is not to be confused with the witch hunt stuff from the Department of Justice or the FBI, or the constant barrage of accusations from the television pundits looking for ratings and advertising income.

Witches bind the President

The witches tell their followers to “bind” the President so he cannot speak or function. Why would this group bother? While it has not been stated Donald J. Trump has set a moral baseline while he is in the White House, from an end to fraudulent entitlement programs and abusers to halting payment to abortion providers from public funds. Whatever their reasons, clearly for eighteen months this has not worked.

The Bible says that binding is done “in the Name, (hence authority) of Jesus” and requires the person doing the binding to be a member of Jesus’ Kingdom not any other kingdom, natural or spiritual. So simply saying “I bind you in the name of Jesus” has no power if Jesus has not given you His authority to use.

Using “Jesus” Name is like a credit card

It is just like using a credit card with someone else’s name on it. They can give you the right to use the card and so you can buy something. But if not, you are a fraud and the sale will be rejected – be of no value to you. If fact you may be charged with a crime.

Jesus’ provides this power to His people and no one else. Matthew 16:29 from an expanded version:

MI will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.

Here is a prayer against witchcraft of this type allegedly from Kat Kerr but I am not sure. In any event, it is a good one.

Believers bind the witches

AGAINST WITCHCRAFT by Kat Kerr: 

Father, on behalf of Your plans, right now for our country. Father, I step into my place of authority and I choose to take power over all the power of the enemy and the demonic operating in any acts of witchcraft or violence over these next few months and their appointed times and before their appointed times can come.

Father, we command the Host of Heaven to go and pull down every stronghold of the demonic controlling every act of the witchcraft, where there are witches, warlocks, wizards, it doesn’t matter who it is they are NOT above the power of God and we command the Host to shred every platform of those witchcraft people standing and operating from – pull down every potion, every spell, it doesn’t matter what it is. Father, we nullify all of it and sever their plans coming against Trump, Pence, all his administration against the Body of Christ who voted in Your man.

They are messing with Your plans. – you are messing with the Most Highs plans and He knows where you live. We send them in full force – all in agreement go NOW Host and make toast of the enemy and his plans to bring destruction against God’s chosen in the White House. We stand up in behalf of America, we stand up and send the Host to ALL the Body of Christ who voted for Trump for divine protection – the enemy will be blinded to us and powerless to know who we are in Jesus’ Mighty Name. To God be ALL the Glory. Amen!!

A final reminder. This prayer has power only if you have been given the authority to speak it. “As my Father has sent me, so send I you.” John 20:21

Judging from the results, cursing and spells have not stopped the president.

The Worst Spiritual Problem facing Americans

May be the deceitful control of the media over our information. Try this on for size. A nation without truth in public is facing extinction.

Fake News Drives Good News off the Stage i.e. Muslim Conversions

After the “Arab Spring” and the Islamic terrorism of 2011, the people saw the “real Islam without its mask” Arabs will turn to the Lord, wrote Asher Intrater, a Jewish writer in Jerusalem in his book, Alignment, (available free download online.)

“Despite the horrendous bloodshed of the past few years (over half a million people brutally murdered and ten million people losing their homes), their prediction of a wave of evangelism has proved true. Millions of Muslims are turning to faith in Yeshua (Christ) all over the world. At the time of this writing (2017) , one very trustworthy estimate speaks of over 3 million Muslims coming to faith in Egypt alone.”

“We often hear Arab Christians say, “The best evangelists for Christianity have been ISIS. They are turning people away from Islam in multitudes.”

900 American bankers commit suicide in the past three years. Did you know that? Of course not.

In Venezuela coroners and doctors are not permitted to list starvation as a cause of death for fear people will find out communism (socialism) is a failure. Did you know that? Of course not.

Truthful news reporting will return to print and media when the public demands it and refuses to be duped any more. Yes, that’s you.
