U.N. Moves Into Public Schools

They're doing it: U.N. makes its move into your school
Program already operating in hundreds of U.S. locations
Posted: August 10, 20109:10 pm Eastern

By Michael Carl© 2010 WorldNetDaily
The agenda of the United-Nations-funded and -run International Baccalaureate Curriculum is making massive inroads into America's public schools, with operations already established in more than 1,000 locations.

Worldview Weekend President and Founder Brannon Howse says the program is trying to train American students to embrace an anti-Christian worldview. "This U.N. curriculum is extremely hostile to Christians. It's hostile to American values and ideas and very big on humanism, redistribution of wealth, and very big on pluralism and that all religions are equal," Howse told WND.

Howse says one of his radio program's listeners is frustrated that there is no outcry from the public.

Here's the instruction manual on an alternative to public schools, in "You've Decided to Homeschool, Now What?"

"The man wrote me an e-mail, and he said, 'It's crazy how we're not informed and how so many parents, Christian parents, are shuffling their kids into these programs thinking it's a good thing, a positive thing," Howse said.

Listen to with Brannon Howse:
Howse points to the program's objectives that say the entire curriculum is shaped by the U.N.
According to a report at EdNews.org, the program should overrule any "parochial" values or beliefs, with a heavy focus on a social agenda throughout classes.

"Math Studies curriculum explores problems concerning the weather, environmental protection, conservation and energy. … The statistics unit will examine a variety of problems from a global perspective, such as the disparity of wealth distribution between first- and third-world countries."

The report says Latin students "will examine the ancient world as a sounding board to measure and compare the global issues in a modern world. Students will discuss the impact on the Roman world, as well as their own, of such topics as women's rights, slavery and national imperialism."
The report is highly critical of the International Baccalaureate.

The organization "not only teaches its own worldview, it simultaneously undermines the beliefs and values of the United States (also called the 'American creed')," the report said. It cites an International Baccalaureate teaching page, which says, "Both Democrats and the Republicans supported a more or less unrestrained capitalist system. They believed that it offered unique incentives to hard work and opportunities for all even though there was plenty of evidence that it left many people very poor and a few grotesquely rich."

A teacher who asked not to be identified believes the standards in Massachusetts, one of the states where the International Baccalaureate has been expanding, are fine the way they are.
"One thing that greatly troubles me is we have an excellent curriculum in Massachusetts public schools. Our frameworks are second to none. Our [standard] is the envy of the nation," the teacher said.

The teacher is also pleased that the current state standards allow for openness to the Bible.
"Did you know we are not only allowed to use the Bible in public schools – it is encouraged as recommended literature?" the teacher asked.

She added that further interference from the federal government will compromise this freedom.
"This past month I believe the liberal legislators on Beacon Hill took Obama's bait (involving financial incentives) and are adopting the federal standards 'Common Core Curriculum.' I very much doubt that the federal standards exalt the Scriptures as quality literature. In our social-studies frameworks, it includes what salvation means, in the life of a Christian. Doubtful the federal common core standards do that," the teacher said.

The Massachusetts teacher's concern for her own state would appear to be justified because the Massachusetts Department of Education website discusses Massachusetts school systems that are introducing the International Baccalaureate Curriculum.

One link is to the Sturgis, Mass., Charter School that lists its International Baccalaureate program among its best practices. The Sturgis site says, "To foster international awareness and understanding and ensure world-class standards of academic achievement, Sturgis will maintain for membership in the International Baccalaureate."

Later, on the same page, the site boasts, "Ensuring College Readiness: International Baccalaureate for All. Sturgis Charter Public School offers a nonselective International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for students who are admitted to the school by lottery. The school has been successful at ensuring college readiness for all students at the school through the program."

Who is behind the advocacy of the International Baccalaureate program?

Recent evidence of federal involvement is seen in a 2008 position paper issued by the Obama-Biden campaign that openly promoted the International Baccalaureate program.

The statement begins with campaign slogans and speaks of a vision for a "21st Century Education." Then the statement continues. "Barack Obama and Joe Biden will create a national 'Make College a Reality' initiative, based on the successful efforts underway in many states to increase the percentage of students taking rigorous courses and assessments, such as Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses."

While not specifically mentioning the International Baccalaureate program by name, the president's website continues to echo the "global" theme. "At this defining moment in our history, preparing our children to compete in the global economy is one of the most urgent challenges we face," Obama's education issues page said.

A search for references to the International Baccalaureate program leads to the National Education Association website. A 2008 NEA policy brief openly promotes introduction of the International Baccalaureate Curriculum.

"In a revamped high school, the concept of rigor is broadened to include mastery not only of core academic subjects but of the higher-order cognitive skills that the global economy demands. A rigorous high-school program aligns curriculum, instruction and assessment with high standards and high expectations. It focuses on the integration of skills and knowledge. It is coherent and sequential and encourages students to tackle challenging Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and honors courses," the statement recommended.

The NEA further listed an advocacy letter from U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wisc. "Researchers and other experts have recommended that these indicators could include graduation rates; postsecondary and career-placement rates; attendance rates; student mobility or transfer rates; the number and percentage of students participating in rigorous coursework (including honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, dual enrollment, early college)," Moore's letter read.

The NEA declined comment on this story.

Support for the program also comes from U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. In a May 2010 Council on Foreign Relations forum, Duncan advocated more international integration for U.S. schools. "I really appreciate the chance to have this conversation. I want to begin by discussing two important trends that inform our drive to transform education here in America. The first is increased international competition and the second is increased international collaboration," Duncan stated.

The reference is to international collaboration, but while he was superintendent of the Chicago Public Schools, Duncan promoted the International Baccalaureate Curriculum.

The Chicago Public Schools website features two pages that discuss the implementation of the International Baccalaureate program in the Chicago schools. Both pages say one of the goals of the International Baccalaureate Curriculum in Chicago is encouraging students to be globalists. The "Diploma Programme" page lists the goals. "Goals: Teach students how to learn. Provide an opportunity for each student to strengthen their communication skills. Enable students to become global citizens by encouraging their understanding of people from other countries and cultures," the "Diploma Programme" site said.

President Obama's support for the International Baccalaureate program goes back to his connections with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers. While the two worked together at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the Walter-Annenberg-funded program gave money to Chicago-area schools.

In a document posted on the Truth About the International Baccalaureate website, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge is reported to have given money to the Beverly–Morgan Park Middle School to fund the "Middle Years" International Baccalaureate program.

Further funding for the International Baccalaureate Curriculum comes from such diverse organizations as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation website reports that the group gave over $2 million to the Irving, Texas, public schools.

Other groups that have contributed large sums of money for the adoption of the International Baccalaureate program include former International Baccalaureate Board Chairman Carol Bellamy's Star Network. The Star Network's World Learning site also lists the George-Soros-connected Tides Foundation, Zonta International, the United States Agency for International Development and Soros' new organization, the Open Society Institute, as donors to the cause.

Worldview Weekend's Howse adds that America's biggest problem is that parents and schools are working against their own interests. "Here we have 1,095 schools across the country adopting a U.N. curriculum and you have conservatives, whether it's conservative parents, thinking it's great for their kids to be in there, and conservative educators who if you asked them would say they are conservatives. Then you have conservative school-board members who have bought the lie that they can rewrite the curriculum," Howse observed.

"So much for Washington. If Washington waits around, we'll destroy ourselves," Howse said.
WND previously has reported on a growing move in the U.N. that would impact significantly Americans' rights regarding their children's education.

Its programs are being opposed by ParentalRights.org, which was created in response, advocating for a simple addition to the U.S. Constitution. The proposed change would state: "The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right. Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served."

It also would specify, "No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article."

Christians Called to Abandon Public Education

Children's worldview determined by 14,000 hours in classrooms
Posted: December 28, 2008

You've heard all about the disputes: "Silent Night" banned at the "holiday" program, artistic references to the Bible censored and faith-inclusive children's programs facing discrimination.
Now some people are fed up with public school treatment of Christianity and have launched a campaign calling for a rescue of kids from government education programs – a "Call to Dunkirk."

The name Dunkirk is famous for the hundreds of thousands of World War II allies saved in May 1940 when a flotilla of pleasure boats, fishing craft and others rescued the soldiers from the beaches near Dunkirk, France, where they were trapped by an advancing German army. Author David J. Knowles, who wrote a book on the rescue that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called a miracle, said volunteers including boat owners, fishermen – ordinary people instead of trained soldiers and sailors – crossed the English Channel to effect the rescue of about 340,000 people.

Now, officials with Exodus Mandate have launched their "Call to Dunkirk" to advocate a departure from public schools.

Several officials have created a YouTube video on their plan, Organization chief Chaplain E. Ray Moore, a retired military officer, said that at Dunkirk, "total disaster (was) averted by bold leadership and ordinary citizens answering the call." But he said in America, three-quarters or more of the Christian children, "are trapped in the state-run public schools."

Bruce Shortt, the author of "The Harsh Truth about Public Schools," said, "culture is shaped by how we're educated."

"Why should we be surprised we're losing culturally and politically when we continue to offer up our children as living sacrifices to the Molech of government schools?" he said.

Get the book that exposes "The Harsh Truth About Public Schools" direct from WND's online store!

Voddie Baucham, Jr., author of "Family Driven Faith," noted children spend about 14,000 hours in public schools.

"Whoever controls those 14,000 hours controls our children's worldview," he said, citing Charles Francis Potter, a signer of the Humanist Manifesto. He wrote, "What can theistic Sunday school meeting for an hour once a week do to stem the tide of a five day program of humanist teaching?"

"The left knows that whoever controls the children owns the future. That's why so many '60s radicals like Bill Ayers went into education. Now they effectively control the government school system and its curriculum. But worse, we give them our children," Shortt said.

Moore said his plan is simple:
"That all families, churches, pastors, major Christian ministries and organizations, concentrate for one year on extracting Christian children from the pagan, godless public schools."

"State-run public schools have become destructive to our children's Christian faith. They no longer educate but rather indoctrinate. Not only morally corrupt, public schools are unsafe because of the violence and crime that occurs in them on a regular basis," the campaign says.

WND previously reported Moore's estimate based on statistics that 70 to 80 percent of Christian children "will abandon the church and their faith in a public school career."

Public Schools of Evil

EXPOSING THE PLAN
By R.C. Murray August 28, 2010

“We tried to warn others, but to no avail. Our only hope is in the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” -Phyllis Harm Higginbotham, 1974 Textbook Protester

Here's The Plan: "A bunch of unelected elitists are going to make you an offer you can't refuse – a free education for your children via public schools that will be run under the auspices of local governments, administered by state governments but actually controlled by the federal government. But don't get too excited by the word "free" because you're going to be paying for it with your taxes and most especially your children, who will be forcibly taken from your home if you refuse to comply, and/or you will be jailed for violating truancy laws written to enforce the new compulsory education law.

After about 100 years of conditioning parents and kids to the drill of leaving the home early in the morning for five days of reading, writing and arithmetic, The Plan goes into its second phase – full scale indoctrination and deliberate dumbing down. Reading, writing and math skills will be de-emphasized more and more. Science will be more theory than actual science, and historical figures like our founding fathers will fade away. Textbooks will no longer include traditional family values like truth, honesty and respect for others; instead, textbooks will instill doubt in American work ethics, patriotism and faith in the Christian God. Your kids will be de-programmed of those values taught at home and church and re-programmed with the Fundamentals of Humanism – Socialism, Darwinism and Moral Relativism."

That's been the plan for over 150 years, and with few exceptions, everything has gone according to plan. One exception was the 1974 Textbook Wars that took place in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Karl C. Priest, a retired public school teacher and veteran of the 1974 Textbook Wars, has exposed The Plan by painstakingly documenting school board battles, protest skirmishes and the gory details of the war the Left declared against Bible-believing Christian a long time ago in his new book, “Protester Voices: The 1974 Textbook Tea Party.”

I wish I had had this book for reference material when I sat down to write about my own experiences as a teacher in the public school system, “Legally STUPiD: Why Johnny doesn’t have to read.” “Protester Voices” is a wealth of information with eye witness testimony of those who first drew a line in the sand and told the humanist-socialist devils intent on taking over this country, “You can’t have my child!”

Until the early 1970’s, most Americans were na├»vely unaware of the sinister plan of those that founded public schools, including Horace Mann, the Unitarian (a.k.a., neo-Gnostic), and John Dewey, the atheist-socialist. If you mentioned it to them, they’d shrug their shoulders and wonder what these folks had to do with their kids learning communication and math skills and gaining knowledge in science, history, geography or even sports.

Then one day a newly elected board member of the Kanawha County Board of Education, Alice Moore, questioned the routine method by which board members were expected to vote on new textbooks that had been recommended by a few select teachers but had not been read by board members. Moore thought since she was being asked to approve the books, she ought to know what was in them. She managed to delay the vote to approve the purchase of the books until she had time to read a few of the books.

Moore, now affectionately referred to as “The Lady,” discovered several books containing profanity with graphic sexual content, where traditional American values were ridiculed and supplanted with humanist values that taught children to first doubt then question then reject their Judeo-Christian heritage. Over 300 books were eventually identified as objectionable, some $500,000 worth of books, which ended up being stored in a warehouse because more than three-quarters of the parents opted not to let their children read them.

Do you think the other board members cared about these subversive books? When Moore tried to get one of the teachers involved in selecting the books to read aloud from one of them, the suddenly pious, religious heathen refused. She didn’t want to be heard or recorded using that kind of language in public. Not only did the other board members and superintendent oppose Moore’s suggestion to not pay for the offensive books, she and the tens of thousands of Christian parents, grandparents, business men, plumbers, construction workers, ministers and coal miners were mocked by the news media as ignorant, uneducated and – you know they have to use the race card – racists.

Isn’t that the same thing the news media is saying about the millions of Americans now participating in Tea Parties? The Left was scared of real Americans then, and they’re still scared of us now.

“Both newspapers and television media found themselves in the awkward position of supporting literature for children in school that they would not or could not legally print in their papers or read over the airways,” Moore says in Priest’s book, page 202.

Priest very carefully records board meeting after board meeting, protest after protest, especially the cruel, oppressive measures taken by the school personnel, pseudo-Christian ministers, local police and sheriffs deputies, local judges – even the IRS that harassed, slandered, threatened, arrested and in every way possible attempted to ruin the lives of those who dared questioned the authority of government school officials.

Is it a crime for parents to expect they have a right to decide what is being taught to their children? The 1974 Textbook Wars invariably proved to parents the state thinks it owes their children, which caused thousands then tens of thousands of parents to remove their children from the public school system, in West Virginia and across the country.

Approximately 15 percent of American school children are now in private or Christian schools or home schools. That number should be three times that, if all Christian parents would obey God’s Word. As Priest explains, most Christian parents convince themselves that 2-3 hours of Bible on Sunday and maybe an hour on Wednesday night will compensate for 6 hours a day, five days a week of humanist indoctrination. He compares their line of thinking to saying their kids can remain healthy by feeding them candy five days a week then a salad on Sunday.

Priest now serves as the West Virginia State Coordinator for Exodus Mandate, an organization founded by retired Army chaplain, Ray Moore, in 1997, which promotes Christian schools and home schooling. Public schools cannot be reformed. Let them keep their filthy textbooks and their fancy brick buildings that you pay for with your tax money. Let all that go, but don’t let them have your children!

“Reforming government schools is like teaching a pig to dance,” Priest says, sort of philosophically on page 333. “You only get dirty and the pig gets mad.”

There’s lots of symbolism in that statement, but most public school grads don’t get it, thanks to their lack of reading skills. I highly recommend this book to every Christian parent and anyone concerned about the quality of education their children aren’t getting in public schools.
“Our goal must be complete educational independence,” says Priest (page 334). “Our consummate concern must be to protect our children. We must rescue our children” (page 336).

I couldn’t agree more. If we at least save our children, it won’t matter when the country falls, as so many of us expect it will. We’ll at least have a new generation capable of starting over.
I’d like to be wrong about the near future I’ve depicted in my new book, “Prole Nation,” but the evidence compiled in Priest’s book proves our prole-producing public schools have amassed a constituency base too large to overcome by electing a few conservatives at any level of government.

Government is not the answer anyway; government is the problem. Jesus is the answer, but he’s not welcome in government schools. For that reason alone his children shouldn’t be there either.

Do you believe your children are government property? If not, take them out of Big Brother’s hands today – right now – read “Protester Voices” then contact www.exodusmandate.org/ to see what you can do to help save other children from public schools.

Feeding Sheep or Amusing Goats?

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
1834-1892 (but it could as well be today)

An evil is in the professed camp of the Lord, so gross in its impudence, that the most shortsighted can hardly fail to notice it during the past few years. It has developed at an abnormal rate, even for evil. It has worked like leaven until the whole lump ferments. The devil has seldom done a cleverer thing than hinting to the church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people, with a view to winning them.

From speaking out as the Puritans did, the church has gradually toned down her testimony, then winked at and excused the frivolities of the day. Then she tolerated them in her borders. Now she has adopted them under the plea of reaching the masses.

My first contention is that providing amusement for the people is nowhere spoken of in the Scriptures as a function of the church. If it is a Christian work, why did not Christ speak of it? "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). That is clear enough So it would have been if He had added, "and provide amusement for those who do not relish the gospel." No such words, however, are to be found. It did not seem to occur to him.

Then again, "He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers .., for the work of the ministry" (Eph. 4:11-12). Where do entertainers come in? The Holy Spirit is silent concerning them. Were the prophets persecuted because they amused the people or because they refused? The concert has no martyr roll.

Again, providing amusement is in direct antagonism to the teaching and life of Christ and all his apostles. What was the attitude of the church to the world? Ye are the salt" (Matt. 5:13), not the sugar candy---something the world will spit out not swallow. Short and sharp was the utterance, "Let the dead bury their dead" (Matt. 8:22) He was in awful earnestness.

Had Christ introduced more of the bright and pleasant elements into his mission, he would have been more popular when they went back, because of the searching nature of His teaching. I do not hear him say, "Run after these people Peter and tell them we will have a different style of service tomorrow, something short and attractive with little preaching. We will have a pleasant evening for the people. Tell them they will be sure to enjoy it. Be quick Peter, we must get the people somehow." Jesus pitied sinners, sighed and wept over them, but never sought to amuse them.

In vain will the Epistles be searched to find any trace of this gospel of amusement! Their message is, "Come out, keep out, keep clean out!" Anything approaching fooling is conspicuous by its absence. They had boundless confidence in the gospel and employed no other weapon.

After Peter and John were locked up for preaching, the church had a prayer meeting but they did not pray, "Lord grant unto thy servants that by a wise and discriminating use of innocent recreation we may show these people how happy we are." If they ceased not from preaching Christ, they had not time for arranging entertainments. Scattered by persecution, they went everywhere preaching the gospel. They turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6). That is the only difference! Lord, clear the church of all the rot and rubbish the devil has imposed on her, and bring us back to apostolic methods.

Lastly, the mission of amusement fails to effect the end desired. It works havoc among young converts. Let the careless and scoffers, who thank God because the church met them halfway, speak and testify. Let the heavy laden who found peace through the concert not keep silent! Let the drunkard to whom the dramatic entertainment has been God's link in the chain of the conversion, stand up! There are none to answer. The mission of amusement produces no converts. The need of the hour for today's ministry is believing scholarship joined with earnest spirituality, the one springing from the other as fruit from the root. The need is biblical doctrine, so understood and felt, that it sets men on fire.

Glenn Beck's Divine Destiny

I like Glenn Beck and watch him regularly. However, with my background in research I have become suspicious of all commentators, main stream media, politicians, etc. I have often wondered if he is unwittingly - or wittingly - being used for someone else's agenda, primarily because there are certain subjects which he will not touch, and they are subjects that need to be exposed.

However, this past week Beck - who is a Mormon - got heavily into the arena of religion. On his August 18th program, Glenn brought up the topic of the Bat Creek stone found in a Native American burial mound in Tennessee in 1889. The Mormon Church teaches that Native American Indians are descendants of a lost tribe of Israel. Therefore, this would be of interest to Glenn as a Mormon, but he needs to be upfront with his audience, which he was not.

Mormons love to bill themselves as Christians, but Mormonism is not Christian. It is a cult. By referring to the Bat Creek stone, he was presenting Mormon philosophy, but was not open and honest in telling this to his audience. He used Mormon authors, scientists and teachers to make his point, and claimed that our history has been rewritten. Is this part of his agenda?

His event on August 27th at the Kennedy Center is described on his website as "Glenn Beck's Divine Destiny" and states that the event will include "uplifting music, nationally-known religious figures from all faith will unite…" Glenn's website also promotes Glenn's "Daily Spiritual Thought" and "join Glenn Beck live each weekday morning at 7:05a ET for prayer."

A committed Christian has no business furthering the divine destiny of a Mormon, certainly cannot engage in the unity of all faiths, and cannot join Beck in a prayer by, and for, all faiths. The gods worshipped by Mormons, Muslims, and every other faith are not the God of Christianity.

My alarm bells began to go off at his first declaration, and continuing emphases, that only by turning to god could this nation be restored. Which god was he talking about? When I now see that he is calling religious leaders of all faiths to unite for this upcoming event I am truly alarmed. This will be especially seductive to Christians who share his political views, but are ignorant of the dangers of mixing them with pagan or cultic religious views, in order to achieve what is perceived as a common goal.

Beck's website is crystal clear that this will be a spiritual event in which "...The audience for the event will be overwhelmingly made up of pastors, ministers and clergy... that will help heal your soul..." and that the hymn, Eternal Father Strong to Save, "is the message of 8/27". Herein lies the problem. A Mormon's definition of God the Father does not recognize Jesus Christ as godhead, nor does any other religion. Only in Christianity does Jesus Christ represent God Himself, and it is on this very point that our salvation is secured.

No matter how laudible the political cause may be, Christians cannot set aside the Gospel of Jesus Christ or the supremacy of God's Word, to unite spiritually with those who preach another Jesus and another gospel. The fact that Beck's cause began as a political one ... and has now surpassed that, and has become a spiritual cause ... is another excellent example of the brilliant and subtle deceptions that Satan uses to accomplish his purpose. Frankly, I very much doubt if Beck comprehends any of this. But Christians must.

The Apostle Paul warns Christians against uniting with unbelievers in spiritual endeavors in 2 Corinthians 6:14 where we read, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" Followers of Jesus Christ are called out, to be separated spiritually from non-believers.

While Christians can certainly agree with Beck's views on politics, the constitution, etc., we must not - and cannot - join spiritually with people of all faiths for any purpose whatsoever. By moving into the realm of doctrine, theology and the spiritual, the line has been drawn in the sand.

THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

DECEPTIONS: #10 - Mosque in New York

The proposed Muslim mosque to be erected at the World Trade Center site is but one tiny piece of a grand deception with many moving parts.

Don't suppose for one errant second that the rights of Muslims in the United States has even a passing relationship to religious freedom in the U.S., or to the First Amendment. This argument is only a clever deception to point attention away from the real issues, which it is doing brilliantly.

I believe there are fewer than 5% of individuals in the entire United States who comprehend that Islam is much more than a religion. It is an entire social system which includes religious supremacy, political supremacy, financial supremacy, Sharia law supremacy, lifestyle supremacy ... in other words, Islamic supremacy.

It is not possible to unhinge the religion of Islam from the other components. They all come in one package. Islam's goal is to rule the entire earth. This has been the goal from its inception, and it has been carried out in the exact same method throughout its history, through subtle deception and infiltration of a society. The moment it reaches critical mass it devours the entire society for Islam through terror and brute force.

While I am certain that many Muslims have come to America because they wanted to escape the darkness of Islam, the religious leaders who build the mosques are fervent devotees of their religion, and they have made stunning progress in a very short time due to the incredible naivete and ignorance of the American people - the same naivete and ignorance that has been electing our evil and ungodly leaders for quite some time.

One final titillating caveat for your consideration: One of the final provisions of the Illuminati plan calls for creating a war between the Muslims and the Christians, with the goal of having them destroy each other.

My! my! Every single prophecy in God's Word is coming true just exactly as written thousands of years ago. Imagine that.

Ownership

"The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein." Psalm 24:1

The comprehensive nature of that little verse is the very basis on which the entire Word of God rests. That is why creationism - not evolution - is the rock upon which everything rests. These two diametrically opposed views are not merely 'scientific' beliefs; they define our spiritual positions.

Whether or not we believe that an omnipotent, omniscient, transcendent Creator God spoke everything into being impacts every facet of our entire worldview.

God owns the earth. He created it. He owns every living creature on the earth and every living creature in the sea. He owns the metals that keep the planet geometrically in balance. He owns our bodies and our souls. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He owns the rulers of the nations. He owns the nations.

Mankind was the crown of His creation, and we were to manage the earth as His stewards.

Now comes Lucifer, who I believe was jealous of man's position of management. Not only was he jealous of us, but he was jealous of God Himself - and filled with pride and arrogance. Being the most outstanding and gifted angel, he actually imagined that he could usurp the authority of the Creator himself. And he has been working at it for thousands of years, despite knowing the ultimate outcome of ruination for himself.

I have noticed with great fascination during my study of the great deceptions of these last days that every single thing Lucifer does is a 'copy' of what God does. He is not an original thinker, but a copycat, a perfect example of the blinding power of greed, envy and pride. He doesn't even run a close second.

It's Not So Much Where You Are....

....As How Far You Have Traveled.

Consider two cases.

First, there is the man who is born into great spiritual privilege, into a godly family which has revered the Lord for generations. This man has been trained and taught in the ways of the Lord, has personally made a decision to follow the Lord. Perhaps after getting off track in his youth, he now shows many attributes of Christian character and is a devout follower of Christ. He seems to have started well, and will certainly end well if he continues to follow the way of the Lord.

The second man is born into great spiritual degradation. His parents ruined their lives through riotous living. They never really paid much attention to this child. He knew nothing of the Lord. He left home at an early age to get away from his parents, and yet his life was patterned after theirs - the very things he hated. One day he is introduced to Jesus Christ, is aware of his sinful state, and eagerly accepts Christ as his Savior. In an instant he is filled with joy and thankfulness; he is indeed a new creature. It's a thrill to hear his story and to see his joy! It brings tears to your eyes.

I have seen these two cases played out over and over again. The second man, even if he lives his entire life as a committed Christian, will never appear to be as godly as the first man. He will always carry some baggage from the circumstances of his early life - some rough edges.

Transformation through salvation is an intensely personal event and experience. The second man's joy overwhelms him and everyone around him, because he is so aware of having been forgiven so much. Those who are forgiven much, love much.

And yet the first man is as firm as a rock in his faith and commitment, but you just can't see as dramatic a change. There was a moment that he, too, recognized his guilty state and loved the Lord profoundly due to his mercy. But his change of heart wasn't so obvious on the outside. He had started out with a profound advantage and was deeply aware that to whom much is given, much is required.

Both were equally sinners - and equally saved by grace.

And we? We must continue to fight the battle of judging people by their circumstances or appearances - and keep our eyes on Jesus.

The Lord has a specific purpose for each of us in this earthly pathway. None of it is by accident. Each of us has equal access to amazing grace ... made possible by amazing love.

Awesome.

Rapture: 50 Arguments For Pretribulation

My favorite subject is Bible prophecy. However, due to the lateness of the hour I have thought it necessary to first address 1) the basics of spiritual warfare and salvation, and 2) a series on some of the many deceptions that are afoot, including my series of blogs about UFOs. I still have a number of deceptions to write about because I think that it is critically important for Christians to be knowledgeable enough to comprehend them. So...I will press on.

I want to take a break today and present 50 arguments for the pretribulation rapture. These arguments come from John F. Walvoord's classic book, "The Rapture Question." Walvoord was the highly respected President of Dallas Theological Seminary some years ago.

Oddly, as it appears more and more like we are on the very edge of the 7-year Tribulation period, rather than becoming more doubtful, I become all the more convinced of the Pretribulation Rapture each day. My study of this has deepened my faith, drawn me nearer to the Lord, and presses upon me the urgency of fulfilling my tiny role in these days.

FIFTY ARGUMENTS FOR PRETRIBULATIONISM by John F. Walvoord

Historical Argument

1. The early church believed in the imminency of the Lord's return, which is an essential doctrine of pretribulationism.

2. The detailed development of pretribulational truth during the past few centuries does not prove that the doctrine is new or novel. Its development is similar to that of other major doctrines in the history of the church.

Hermeneutics

3. Pretribulationism is the only view which allows literal interpretation of all Old and New Testament passages on the great tribulation.

4. Only pretribulationism distinguishes clearly between Israel and the church and their respective programs.

Nature of the Tribulation

5. Pretribulationism maintains the Scriptural distinction between the great tribulation and tribulation in general which precedes it.

6. The great tribulation is properly interpreted by pretribulationists as a time of preparation for Israel's restoration (Deut. 4:29-30; Jer. 30:-4-11). It is not the purpose of the tribulation to prepare the church for glory.
7. None of the Old Testament passages on the tribulation mention the church. (Deut. 4:29-30; Jer. 30:4-11; Dan. 9:24-27; 12:1-2.)

8. None of the New Testament passages on the tribulation mention the church (Matt. 24:15-31; 1 Thess. 1:9-10, 5:4-9; Rev. Ch. 4-19).

9. In contrast to midtribulationism, the pretribulational view provides an adequate explanation for the beginning of the great tribulation in Revelation 6. Midtribulationism is refuted by the plain teaching of Scripture that the great tribulation begins long before the seventh trumpet of Revelation 11.

10. The proper distinction is maintained between the prophetic trumpets of Scripture by pretribulationism. There is no proper ground for the pivotal argument of midtribulationism that the seventh trumpet of Revelation is the last trumpet, in that there is no established connection between the seventh trumpet of Rev. 11, the last trumpet of 1 Cor. 15:52, and the trumpet of Matt. 24:31. They are three distinct events.

11. The unity of Daniel's seventieth week is maintained by pretribulationists. By contrast, midtribulationism destroys the unity of Daniel's seventieth week and confuses Israel's program with that of the church.

Nature of the Church

12. The translation of the church is never mentioned in any passage dealing with the second coming of Christ after the tribulation.

13. The church is not appointed to wrath (Rom. 5:9; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; 5:9). The church therefore cannot enter "the great day of their wrath" (Rev. 6:17).

14. The church will not be overtaken by the Day of the Lord (1 Thess. 5:1-9) which includes the tribulation.

15. The possibility of a believer escaping the tribulation is mentioned in Luke 21:36.

16. The church of Philadelphia was promised deliverance from "the hour of trial, that hour which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3:10).

17. It is characteristic of divine dealing to deliver believers before a divine judgment is inflicted upon the world as illustrated in the deliverance of Noah, Lot, Rahab, etc. (2 Peter 2:6-9).

18. At the time of the translation of the church, all believers go to the Father's house in heaven (John 14:3), and do not immediately return to the earth after meeting Christ in the air, as posttribulationists teach.

19. Pretribulationism does not divide the body of Christ at the rapture on a works principle. The teaching of a partial rapture is based on the false doctrine that the translation of the church is a reward for good works. It is rather a climactic aspect of salvation by grace.

20. The Scriptures clearly teach that all, not part, of the church will be raptured at the coming of Christ for the church (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:17).

21. As opposed to a view of a partial rapture, pretribulationism is founded on the definite teaching of Scripture that the death of Christ frees from all condemnation.

22. The godly remnant of the tribulation are pictured as Israelites, not members of the church as maintained by the posttribulationists.

23. The pretribulational view as opposed to the posttribulationism does not confuse general terms like elect and saints which apply to the saved of all ages with specific terms like church and those in Christ which refer to believers of this age only.

Doctrine of Imminency

24. The pretribulational interpretation is the only view which teaches that the coming of Christ is actually imminent.

25. The exhortation to be comforted by the coming of the Lord (1 Thess. 4:18) is significant only in the pretribulational view, and is especially contradicted by posttribulationism.

26. The exhortation to look for "the glorious appearing" of Christ to His Own (Titus 2:13) loses its significance if the tribulation must intervene first. Believers in that case should look for signs.

27. The exhortation to purify ourselves in view of the Lord's return has most significance if His coming is imminent (1 John 3:23).

28. The church is uniformly exhorted to look for the coming of the Lord, while believers in the tribulation are directed to look for signs.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit as the Restrainer of evil cannot be taken out of the world unless the church, which the Spirit indwells, is translated at the same time. The tribulation cannot begin until this restraint is lifted.

30. The Holy Spirit as the Restrainer must be taken out of the world before "the lawless one," who dominates the tribulation period, can be revealed (2 Thess. 2:6-8).

31. If the expression, "except the falling away come first," be translated literally, "except the departure come first," it would plainly show the necessity of the rapture taking place before the beginning of the tribulation.

Necessity of an Interval Between the Rapture and the Second Coming

32. According to 2 Corinthians 5:10, all believers of this age must appear before the judgment seat of Christ in heaven [the "rewards" judgment], an event never mentioned in the detailed accounts connected with the second coming of Christ to the earth.

33. If the twenty-four elders of Revelation 4:1-5:14 are representative of the church, as many expositors believe, it would necessitate the rapture and reward of the church before the tribulation.

34. The coming of Christ for His bride must take place before the second coming to the earth for the wedding feast (Rev. 19:7-10).

35. Tribulation saints are not translated at the second coming of Christ but carry on ordinary occupations such as farming and building houses, and shall bear children (Isa. 65:20-25). This would be impossible if all saints were translated at the second coming to the earth as posttribulationists teach.

36. The judgment of the Gentiles following the second coming (Matt. 25:31-46) indicates that both saved and unsaved are still in their natural bodies, which would be impossible if the translation had taken place at the second coming.

37. If the translation took place in connection with the second coming to the earth, there would be no need of separating the sheep from the goats at a subsequent judgment, but the separation would have taken place in the very act of the translation of the believers before Christ actually sets up His throne on earth (Matt. 25:31).

38. The judgment of Israel (Ezek. 20:34-38), which occurs subsequent to the second coming indicates the necessity of regathering Israel. The separation of the saved from the unsaved in this judgment obviously takes place sometime after the second coming and would be unnecessary if the saved had previously been separated from the unsaved by translation.

The Rapture and The Second Coming - Contrasts Between

39. At the time of the rapture the saints meet Christ in the air, while at the second coming Christ returns to the Mount of Olives to meet the saints on earth.

40. At the time of the rapture the Mount of Olives is unchanged, while at the second coming it divides and a valley is formed to the east of Jerusalem (Zech. 14:4-5).

41. At the rapture living saints are translated, while no saints are translated in connection with the second coming of Christ to the earth.

42. At the rapture the saints go to heaven, while at the second coming to the earth the saints remain on the earth without translation.

43. At the time of the rapture the world is unjudged and continues in sin, while at the second coming the world is judged and righteousness is established in the earth.

44. The translation of the church is pictured as a deliverance before the day of wrath, while the second coming is followed by the deliverance of those who have believed in Christ during the tribulation.

45. The rapture is described as imminent, while the second coming is preceded by definite signs.

46. The translation of living believers is truth revealed only in the New Testament, while the second coming with its attendant events is a prominent doctrine of both Testaments.

47. The rapture concerns only the saved, while the second coming deals with both saved and unsaved.

48. At the rapture Satan is not bound, while at the second coming Satan is bound and cast into the abyss.

49. No unfulfilled prophecy stands between the church and the rapture, while many signs must be fulfilled before the second coming.

50. No passage dealing with the resurrection of saints at the second coming in either Testament ever mentions translation of living saints at the same time.

How To Destroy A Nation

Dick Lamm was the former Governor of Colorado. He recently attended an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, D.C. It was attended by many of America's finest minds and leaders. One was a college professor, Victor Hansen Davis, who spoke about his latest book, 'Mexifornia,' explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal - was destroying the entire state of California.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and presented a talk about how to destroy America in eight steps. “Here is how they do it,” Lamm said.

“First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual.

The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada , Belgium , Malaysia and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.”

Lamm continued: “Second, to destroy America, invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal - that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

'Third, we could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.' Lamm said, 'I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."

"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.

"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology...' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.

'My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games.. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. 'E. Pluribus Unum' -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will 'Balkanize' America as surely as Kosovo.

"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: that because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book 'Mexifornia.' His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."


There was no applause. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm had enumerated was proceeding methodically across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice honor killings are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America. Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book '1984.' In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: 'War is peace,' 'Freedom is slavery,' and 'Ignorance is strength.

Anyone who knows history understands why America is where we are today. But, then, we don't teach traditional history anymore, do we?

DECEPTIONS: #10 - Our Origins & History

Our origins, of course, are spelled out in Holy Scripture and given to us by God, our Creator. There will be a great historical deception which will seek to overturn the truth and to present 'evidence' that the Bible is incorrect. This new 'history of our origins' will make a case which falsely identifies other spirits/entities as our true ancestors.

This is a satanic lie designed for the last days.

One of these new histories will most certainly address Egypt, the Giza Plateau, the pyramids, including the Great Pyramid, the earth ley lines, and mathematical and geometrical relationships of these to the stars. The tale may be tied in to Atlantis - or Atlantis may be presented separately. It may also be tied to UFOs, which will always be portrayed as the vehicles of ancient beings who have been living on other planets. If you have read my series of posts on UFOs you will know the truth.

Dr Zahi Hawass, the head of Egyptian antiquities who you often see on tv, will almost certainly play a major role in this archaeological 'discovery,' and it will no doubt be shown on such cable channels as The History Channel and The Discovery Channel. It is believed by those of the occult world that Dr. Hawass will be fulfilling a predestined role in doing this.

Many of the scientists (archaeologists, etc.) who specialize in the Egyptian pyramids are guided and assisted, and receive regularly 'channeled' information from spirit guides who interpret what they find in their excavations. These occult channeled spirit guides are, of course, demonic entities providing this information. Some of the digs are done in secret, financed by powerful and wealthy people who are seeking to find the hidden secrets of technology which will replace our current technology.

Many secret digs occur under the homes and nearby towns, and there are reports of strange, expensive and wonderful items being dug up; they are often stolen. The area buzzes with accounts of many people who have died mysterious and horrible deaths while searching through these underground places. Police reports are often falsified due to the strange circumstances and events. Strange and powerful 'energies' are routinely reported. The entire area is rampant with evidence of occult activity, including large amounts of blood and other bizarre items indicating occult rituals and ceremonies. All of these things are routinely denied by all, including police authorities.

In the depths of the pyramids you will negotiate through a labyrinth (on film) leading to a vast system of rooms and corridors. Some of the chambers, you will be told, are those of your 'ancestors.' You will be told that one of these burial sites is no doubt one of the ancient Pharoahs who is your forefather - you are a 'child of the king.' (Sound familiar, Christians?) You may be shown the burial site of the Queen, your ancient mother.

You will be told that these chambers are linked to the stars and constellations (this part is true), and that inside the chamber is a portal for spirits to connect with the cosmos. In another 6,500 years, at the cyclical pole shift, you will return to the spot and stand with others in their flesh, as revealed in the precession of the equinox. You, as a 'transcended' being will remember when you were in the flesh (now), and will teach this new generation about the eternal Dragon God - the first "king of kings," who will lead you into all knowledge (remember the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? ... and: "you shall become as gods.") They will explain that the Lion King Sphinx holds the history of our forefathers and continues today in its charged duty to hold and protect its part in the secret to the end of time. You may be shown another sign which is given to all those bearing witness to the Truth and the Way.

In a time long gone - in the former life - you may be told that you, as a god, were instrumental in laying the foundations for Earth's part in the great cosmic plan. From ancient times there existed only one science of precision which could convey information about the most important events and dates in the Earth’s history. You will hear that this science is astronomy and it is our lifeblood. Across eons of time, our kind, and many others have navigated the cosmos, weaving patterns together and recording the progress of earth's civilizations.

These are just the broad outlines of those things to which you will be desensitized through tv and movies in the very near future. You can see how Satan - once again - cleverly imitates Almighty God, and our desire for knowledge and mysteries makes us susceptible to the ploys of the devil more so than ever in this age.

Be on guard! "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world." That is our protection.

Born Again: What Does It Really Mean?

"Jesus answered, and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3

Since this teaching came straight from Jesus Christ himself, there is no avoiding the truth of the requirement of being 'born again' if you want to be a follower of Christ. In our current society you will automatically be persecuted and derided when you make such a declaration, because our culture has been taken over by the satanic forces at warp speed over the past few years. These forces don't want you to know anything at all about being born again.

The need for rebirth - regeneration - stems from the utter incapacity of the human being to enter into God's kingdom. Human beings are born into this world with the absolute inability to comprehend God's spiritual truth. The natural human nature cannot understand or please God. Regardless of how talented or brilliant a person might be, he is blind to truth

Rebirth is not a 'fix' for the old nature - the nature is not 'reformed.' Rebirth is a new creation entirely, a creative act of the Holy Spirit whereby your inner spirit responds to the urging of God's spirit calling you to faith in Jesus Christ's sacrificial death for you personally. When you respond with a 'yes' - with faith in Christ crucified, you are reborn - born again - as the Holy Spirit witnesses directly to your own spirit.

Through this new birth you become a member of the family of God, and a partaker of the divine nature, which is imparted to you. It is truly a miracle. You are instantly on a new path, going in a new direction, experiencing the freedom and liberty from your old nature.

Your belief is far more than mere intellectual assent. Even the devil believes (and trembles). It is much more than your mind's agreement. It is an act of your heart and mind - your will. You believe and receive; you are committed to trust and reliance on the revelation of what Jesus Christ has accomplished for you - and will continue to accomplish in your life through the work of the Holy Spirit in your life.

There's nothing in the world like it. And no one can ever take it away from you.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved." John 3:16

It's the abundant life! Accept God's call to you now! The time is short.

About Angels

Rather than labor over an explanation of angels myself, the information on this post comes from a Bible commentator. I plan to do a blog series on angels and demons soon. This is a quick summary.

The term, angel, i.e., "messenger," is used of God, of men, and of an order of created spiritual beings whose chief attributes are strength and wisdom.

In the Old Testament the expression "the angel of the Lord" (sometimes "of God") usually implies the presence of Deity in angelic form. In the New Testament the word "angel" is used of men. In Rev. 8:3-5 Christ is evidently meant. Sometimes "angel" is used of the spirit of man.

Though angels are spirits, power is given them to become visible in the semblance of human form (as men). The word is always used in the masculine gender, though sex, in the human sense, is never ascribed to angels.

They are exceedingly numerous. Their power is inconceivable. Their place is about the throne of God. Their relation to believers is that of "ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation," and this ministry has reference largely to the physical safety and well-being of children of God. It appears that this care for the heirs of salvation begins in our infancy and continues through life. The angels observe us, a fact which should influence conduct.

Man is made "a little lower than the angels," and in the incarnation Christ took "for a little [time]" this lower place that He might lift the Christian into His own sphere above angels.

The angels are to accompany Christ in His second advent. To them will be committed the preparation of the judgment of individual Gentiles among the nations. The Kingdom Age is not to be subject to angels, but to Christ and those (us) for whom He was made a little lower than the angels. An archangel, Michael, is mentioned as having a particular relation to Israel and to the resurrections. The only other angel whose name is revealed, Gabriel, was employed in the most distinguished services.

In regard to fallen angels, two classes are mentioned: 1) "The angels who kept not their first estate [place], but left their own habitation" and are chained under darkness, awaiting judgment. And 2) the angels who are not bound, but go about doing the will of Satan. They may be identical with the demons. Everlasting fire is prepared for Satan and his angels.

I hope this quick summary doesn't raise more questions than it answers, which it seems to me that it does. Nevertheless, I love studying the angels and plan to write in more detail later.

The Unpardonable Sin

Has there ever been a Christian who, at one time or another, has not contemplated whether or not he has committed the "unpardonable sin?" Probably not. It would perhaps be more beneficial if we contemplated more about not committing the 'pardonable' sins!

The standard answer for some one's concern about this is: "Well, if you're worried about it, you haven't committed it," which is probably the truth.

The scripture that concerns the unpardonable sin is found in Matthew 12:22-32. The actual verses that mention it are 31 and 32, but of course we should always read the entire story for proper context when we are looking for insight.

This is one of the many incidents of the Pharisees and their incessant search for some legitimate reason to condemn Jesus. This, of course, they could never find. But, in their jealousy and pride, they never stopped trying.

This was a case in which a man who could neither see nor talk (blind and dumb), due to a demon who had set up shop in him, was brought to Jesus. Christ healed the man, who then was able to see and talk. This absolutely enraged the Pharisees when they heard about it, and they accused Him of casting out demons through the power of Beelzebub (Satan). Jesus answered them in verses 25-31, and then spoke the words in v. 31-32:

"Wherefore, I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men; but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age, neither in the age to come."

The 'blasphemy against the Holy Spirit' consisted in ascribing to Satan the work which had been done by the Holy Spirit. It was unpardonable because of the unusual set of circumstances out of which arose their rejection of Christ. It was the climax of their constant and continual denial that the miracles of Jesus represented the authentic power of God - which was the obvious truth, and seen as truth by thousands of other people - regular ordinary people.

The Pharisees, steeped in God's Word, and given the authority as religious leaders of the Jews, should have been the very first to recognize the Messiah. Instead, the unlearned had the insight to recognize Him, while the Pharisees in their pride and jealousy, committed deliberate, wanton apostasy by crediting to the devil the mighty works of Jesus by the Holy Spirit.

It was:
* unrepentant blasphemy
* by Jewish religious leaders - the shepherds of the Jews
* done purposely
* despite being personal witnesses to His miracles
* in the very presence of Jesus Christ, their Messiah!

These Pharisees had the highest duty and responsibility over all the people, and they would pay the ultimate price for their actions. There would be no pardon for such blasphemy.

I think it would be safe to say that they had the highest duty of any individuals - any religious leaders - who have lived in all of history. To them was given the sacred Word of God and the promise of their Messiah. When Christ was crucified as they insisted, they cried out, "Let it be on our heads." And it is.

To those to whom much is given, much is required.

Headlong Into The Abyss

Once upon a time you could see a slow descent of the United States of America by looking back over the last decade. Then, as the descent gathered steam, you could look over the past year. Now, you can look over the past week - even the past day - and see the breathtaking speed with which our once goodly nation goes headlong into the abyss.

This past week:

* A single judge in California made homosexual 'marriage' legal in California, overturning the will of the people's vote of a constitutional amendment to ban it. The wording in the decision provides that in the future courts will look into "religious motivations" when ruling on various issues. This is unprecedented.

* Elena Kagan is appointed to a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ms. Kagan has a long list of questionable activities, including contempt for the law and the United States armed forces while dean of Harvard Law School. But the one that stands out is this: She falsified a physicians' group's document on partial-birth abortion to reflect her own view instead of theirs — and it was submitted to the Supreme Court as evidence. This is fraud, plain and simple.

* A mosque was approved at Ground Zero in New York City within a short distance of where terrorists on 9-11-2001 flew jets into the World Trade Center. The mayor of New York praised the decision.

* Our government applied pressure on PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas to begin immediate direct talks with Israel - to divide the land.

* Obama plans to complete withdrawal of US troops in Iraq as Iran is poised to increase its involvement in, and influence on, Iraq.

* The U.S. will now concentrate on its involvement in the nine-year war in Afghanistan - for these three self-interests: 1) Drug traffic profits, which have increased 50% since we went there 2) Oil 3) Strategic geopolitical advantage due to Afghanistan's location.

* 20,000 Hezbollah troops are presently positioned in hiding in hospitals, homes, schools and other civilian locations in southern Lebanon, with targets all over Israel. Mingled throughout these troops are United Nations armed forces.

* Our own government is proposing to subvert Congress to actually allow even criminals and terrorists to enter into this country unabated, to be accomplished by Executive Order, to allow applicants who "require a waiver of inadmissibility" ways to remain or come to the United States "without fear of removal."

* It has become abundantly clear that we are ruled by liars and crooks.

* Police departments across the nation are announcing their refusals to respond to citizens' complaints when crimes are committed. The stated reason: lack of funds. (The real reason: massive fraud and insane spending across all levels of government).

Super Saints . . .

. . . AREN'T!

I think a lot of Christians - especially new ones - have the idea that they are s-o-o-o far 'below' some other Christians. They think these others are so superior to them, so 'spiritual.' Not so!

Having been in the church from birth, and having lived in a Christian home, I can tell you without hesitation there are no Super Saints. Every Christian that ever lived is merely a sinner saved by grace. A lot of grace.

My childhood was as near perfect as a childhood could possibly be. My parents walked the walk, always. Nevertheless, they were human beings with human natures - the sin nature we are all born with. The knowledge of how human we are, was a part of the knowledge given to my brother and me by our parents. No one needed to convince us we were human ... it was quite evident :-) We knew we needed God's grace.

In fact, the Bible characters were oh! so human! from Page 1, Adam and Eve. And it went downhill from there. That's one of the things I love about God's Word. It tells it like it is, and the people were all 'regular' people, warts and all. Even the 'best' of them were obviously flawed. That's why we all love Peter so much.

Reading about Peter makes us all think that maybe we can make it to heaven. But, really, the thought the WE can do one thing to merit salvation is the first mistake. WE can do absolutely nothing. Jesus Christ did it all. He is the only one who was found to be qualified.

Oh, I was raised around plenty of Christians who wanted people to think they were super saints. All that is, is self-deception - thinking too much about the great impression we make is ... uh, pride. Don't misunderstand. We need to be as good examples as we can, and a be good role model (pastor's daughter speaking here...), but any goodness we truly have has nothing to do with us, really. Any true saintliness others may see in us could only come from the Holy Spirit shining through. And if we can see the Spirit of Christ shining through someone, that person has made a priority of making himself available for use by the Lord. Probably isn't thinking much about him or her self at all.

On the other hand, as we walk the Christian pathway, there would be something desperately wrong if we did not grow in grace and spiritual maturity, which produces humility. After many years walking with the Lord we should actually be becoming a good example of what a Christian is. Like Paul, we should be able to guide and lead others, by our increasingly Christlike life.

And, even then, we will not be perfect by any means. Not in this life. We will still have those things about ourselves that we don't want to 'show off.' Perhaps things that aren't even wrong or sinful. Perhaps things that are. Rough edges still to be smoothed out by the Potter.

Don't make the mistake of thinking there are people who are Super Saints. And never try to pass yourself off as one. We are most effective when we share our flaws and shortcomings, when we realize we are just sinners eager to share with others how the Great Transformer has changed us, and will continue to change us as we daily submit and walk with Him.

The goal is to be holy as Christ is holy. It will not be fully achieved until we leave this earth realm. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus. That's why He said, "Follow me."

God Calls Them Fools

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." Psalm 53:1

This applies to the so-called intellectual in today's world. They are the ones who decide they can explain things without God. They are the college professors, the scientists, the philosophers, and all who see themselves as wise. They should enjoy this deceptive self-image while they can, because they will soon be faced with the truth that they are fools. There will be no escape.

"Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!" Ezekiel 13:3

Even theologians, ministers and pious lay people are fools if they follow their own 'wisdom' instead of God's Word. Their 'wisdom' is even a sham ... self-deception. Wisdom cannot be had without the Lord:

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever." Psalm 111:9

Jesus even rebuked those he loved because of their lack of understanding the prophecies and why he went to the cross. "Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?" Luke 24.

Each of us can choose to be either a fool or one of the wise. It's clear-cut.

A Death - And A New Will

We are all familiar with the idea of a death, and a will. That idea is a major part of the Bible. Jesus is the one who died (by choice), and the will he left is called The New Covenant, and is described in the New Testament. He left us his inheritance (eternal life).

The words 'covenant, testament, and will,' can all be interchangeable. The New Testament tells all about the New Covenant: the contract for the disposition of an inheritance, i.e., the will.

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant." Hebrews 13:20

God made a number of divine covenants with the Jews in the Old Testament when their sins were forgiven under the law through animal sacrifices. The "wages of sin" were death. These animal sacrifices were acceptable to God as temporary covering for their sin, but they had to be repeated on a regular basis. These sacrifices were only shadows of the new and "better covenant" (Heb. 7:22; 8:6).

The New Covenant provided the means by which Jesus' blood sacrifice actually paid the full price to atone for our sin. Under this new will God's Plan was fulfilled: "I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts:...and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more." Jeremiah 31:33-34. No other sacrifice would ever be required. Jesus paid it all ... once, for all time.

The old law was thus fulfilled and animal sacrifices were ceased, no longer needed. The actual 'veil' in the Jewish Temple, which closed off the area of the Holy of Holies, was actually supernaturally torn in half at the crucifixion, signifying the New Covenant.

The inheritance is eternal ... because the covenant is everlasting. Jesus now sits at the right hand of the Father and "he ever liveth to make intercession" for all those who "come unto God by him." Heb. 7:25

The gift of eternal life is our present possession if we have believed. The Holy Spirit lives in us, we have been born (again) into His family, and our citizenship is now in heaven. He is preparing a place for us: "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." And that's what we are waiting for, and expect, very soon.

No matter how many times I think of, and study, the entire story I will never be able to entirely plumb the depths of it.

It is truly the greatest story ever told. And it's our job to tell it.

Intelligent or Just Educated?

by Salle Sandlin

Yesterday I posted a blog by our friend, Richard Sandlin. Today I would like to post a blog post of his wife and our friend, Salle Sandlin's blog, which you can find at : http://ftg43.blogspot.com. It gives me a little break, and introduces my readers to their blogs. That sounds like a win/win situation. (Thanks, Salle and Richard :-)

Intelligent or Just Educated?
by Salle Sandlin

“Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.” (John 7:15-16)

May we assume from what these men said, Jesus had no formal education? One thing is sure: they considered Him to be less knowledgeable than they. Yet, when He taught, they marveled. In other words, they couldn’t understand how anyone who had not had the benefit of the kind of education to had received, could speak as though He had.

I realize it is obvious that the One who was “the Word” in flesh (Jno.1:14) would be a walking lexicon. Yet, at the same time, the Bible says, “…the common people heard him gladly.” Perhaps this is one reason the Pharisees hated Him so. His circle of influence included men and women of all backgrounds.

Rest assured, I do not mean to disparage education or champion illiteracy. The gaining of helpful, not harmful, knowledge is always to be sought. But I think the principle in this passage is that education may be a basic road to knowledge, but it’s not the only one, by any means.

One of the great benefits of a formal education, it would seem to me, is finding out how to study; and I have sat in classrooms with many students who did not a clue, when it came to knowing where to find answers or assimilate facts. And I might add that I have listened to quite a few teachers whose powers of reasoning were all but nonexistent. As far as I was concerned, they had been educated beyond their intelligence!

Jesus spoke with authority and power because he spoke the words of God. It was as simple as that. And so can we. He did not speak of Himself, as a Man, but of His Father. He goes on to say, “He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory” (v.18). If our knowledge begins and ends with what we subjectively think about things, we have little to add to any conversation. Great thoughts seldom come without stimulation from greater minds, and there is no greater mind than the mind of God.
To you who have not, or will not, have the opportunity of advanced, formal education, I say this without reservation: Because of its style—and authority—anyone who reads and assimilates the language of the King James Bible, and especially who inculcates its truths into his or her life, can consider himself or herself well educated. That education can be augmented; but it cannot be surpassed. It can be refined; but it cannot be replaced. And no one without it can truly be called educated, no matter how many letters may follow his or her name.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God...that the man of God may be perfect...throughly furnished..." (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

The Great Physician

Summer has changed my 'schedule' somewhat, and I've missed a day or two on my blog. So, today I thought I'd share a blog post by a friend of ours, Richard Sandlin:

There are a few things I’ve noticed about the Great Physician compared to the world’s physicians:

· He always makes an accurate diagnosis
· He always provides a cure
· He’s never lost a patient
· He’s never been sued for malpractice (because He makes no mistakes)
· He never needs a second opinion
· He never charges for his services
· He never requires an appointment (walk- ins are welcome)
· He’s always on call
· He responds to every emergency

P.S. Why not pay “Him” a visit right now?
