The Fatal Distraction of American Evangelicals















The believing Evangelical church of America today has been so distracted by Washington politics that it has neglected the REALITY that the Kingdom of Heaven is at our very door! They are all trying to save this doomed "American Titanic"- all in vain - and are neglecting telling those on board to man the life boats (i.e., Christ)! Of course as believers we should do our part as American citizens to give our voice etc., but that day is far far past us. We are now living in a new era of time called post Judeo/Christian America. What is most alarming is the hopeless spirit of fear, anxiety and worry that seems to have possessed and clouded the evangelical Christian's vision to a point that they are in a subjective slumber to the realities of the day and hour in which we live (Rom. 13:11, Eph. 5:14, 1 Thess. 5:6, 1 John 2:18, Rev. 3:2). Wake up beloved, oh thou that sleepest (Rom. 13:11, Eph. 5:14, 1 Thes 5:6)! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! This is why the exponential and overwhelming national and global calamities are present. There is an EXPONENTIALLY horrific tribulation at our door, which we should be warning people of and NOTHING is going to stop that from coming to be (2 Thess. 2:3-12; Rev. 6-19)! Drop the political strawmanic kool - aid my beloved and send the Blessed Gospel Light!! For that is what it is ALL about in this last American hour.

The believing evangelical church of America today has been so distracted by Washington politics that it has neglected the reality that the Kingdom of Heaven is at our very door!

What is most horrifying is the secular indoctrination of godless relativism and lawless tolerance – which has been spreading like wild fire and many Americans (including so called ‘Christians”) are eating it up and love it so (Rev. 3:14-19).

The 2010 election victories of moderate and weak conservative has NOT been able to overturn the last 75 years of ingrained secularization and socialism, let alone the current Obama and the Progressive Left secular agenda . The Left has so charged their crazy hate filled base that they will lose it. There will be blood in the streets from the secular socially dependent Americans if Obama loses the 2012 election. These past shallow Conservative victories can only slow down for a few moments what MUST eventually be. America WILL implode under its own godless and decadent immoral weight and fiscal irresponsibility. Nothing can stop that now, NOTHING! The U.S.S. Titanic is sinking and nothing can stop it from going under! We are at the point of NO RETURN. The END of America is at hand and GLOBAL tribulation is at the door step! (SEE CHART LINK)
,
.As "we as a nation" passes into oblivion, may Almighty God and His Word be your total source for consolation and optimistic reality for today's crisis. Have FAITH in Almighty God America! He alone is able to deliver one from the poisons and corruption that dominate and infest this fallen world (Gal 1:4). My beloved, invest in ETERNITY, not in the few futile seconds of this vain life (Eccl 1:1-3). ETERNITY is where our sights should be set. ETERNITY is our future home (Isa. 65:17, 1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21,22:1-5). It is crucial today to be able to distinguish between these two perceptions.

He alone is able to deliver one from the poisons and corruption that dominate and infest this fallen world.

If you personally know the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior, may you be redeeming these days; for they are indeed evil (Eph. 5:16). May we all - that know the Lord in spirit and truth - dedicate this New Year whole heartedly to Him for His glory and honor (1 Cor. 10:31, Col 3:17, 1 Peter 4:11). May pointing people to a saving knowledge of the Savior be priority one! My beloved, keep focused and looking for the Savior's soon return… for the Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

Connecticut's New Radical Progressive Tourism Theme

Greetings my dear friends throughout the U.S of A... Just wanted to update many of you on our secular and progressive siege here in the "constitution” state of Connecticut . Our totalitarian governor and progressive Left legislators are pushing the most radical Leftist agenda through this past session at breakneck speed! The Connecticut Governor and his progressive cronies have now issued an new agenda for the retransformation of our state’s image which is beyond radical (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). The state of Connecticut seeks to spend 27 million dollars over the next 2 years on tourism with the theme... “Connecticut Still Revolutionary”. Part of this campaign will be about Connecticut’s revolutionary past, but the main thrust behind this marketing campaign is to point out Connecticut's cutting edge involvement status pertaining to the sexual revolution and progressive ideals. What is "revolutionary" is that this governor and Connecticut's dominate progressive legislators are over turning all that this state was founded on. Connecticut like the majority of the 13 colonies was founded on strong Judeo/Christian values and the moral absolutes of the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God. This 27 million dollar propaganda agenda seems to be more about the indoctrination of progressive ideals then bringing people to visit our state. The very revolutionary ideals that Connecticut's founders held so dear have been over turned these last 50 years and in just this last legislative session have been radically changed, rejected and slandered.
.
Part of this campaign will be about Connecticut’s revolutionary past, but the main thrust behind this marketing campaign is to point out and acknowledge Connecticut's cutting edge involvement  pertaining to the sexual revolution and progressive ideals.

Our state will be seeking to market to those of the alternative gay and  transgender life style, moral relativists, progressives and secularist and to put us on the map as a great place to visit and to move for those of the progressive immoral life style (Isa. 5:20). Connecticut is a wonderful place to live and visit. It is full of American history and Almighty God's beauty and natural wonders. To high jack our states history and to pervert and shame it with the bases of progressive ideals is an absolute travesty and the majority of the state's inhabitants reject this campaign!There will be more on this as this story unfolds, but for a state to come out and rejoice that it is on the cutting edge of cultural Marxism and to promote it lock, stock and barrel tells you what kind of political and immoral position we are in here in the Nutmeg state. This agenda would be unimaginable even 5 years ago but it is now dominating and saturating our small state which had a special part in the founding of this nation. There is no stopping the progressive push here in Connecticut and we are in the last room of the Alamo. We have seen this trend also with other progressive states but Connecticut is indeed on the cutting edge, radical and revolutionary for godlessness, lawlessness and progressivism. Remember the term “revolution” was established in the 60’s by the progressive secularist as their rally cry in their attempt to overthrow Judeo/Christian absolutes and establishing a secular lawless state of “delusional liberation” (Isa. 5:20, 48:22, 57:21). The radicals have come home to roost here in Connecticut and we are seeing the manifestation of their handiwork right before our our very eyes. All of these things show without a shadow of a doubt that we are far past the point of no return here in Connecticut and in our nation. It is about time that its states inhabitants and conservative optimistic voices wake up to this reality. The Four Horsemen must ride CT and America and nothing is going to stop that now!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!!

The Need for a Super-President of the EU


















Once again the European Union is in crisis and people are expecting it to collapse. We believe the Union is at a major crossroad in its history. The choice of path will determine if the EU will succeed or fail to achieve its goal of being a supra-national empire (see our book, The European Union and the Supra-Religion: Setting the Stage for the Final Act?). Rather than seeing the present financial crisis as a problem, many in the EU see it as an opportunity to achieve that goal. Prior to that achievement, the EU must deal with three barriers:


Barrier 1: The ongoing regional or state mindset of the citizenry that hinders the EU leadership from agreeing upon and enforcing solutions to the crisis. People still see themselves as Germans, Greeks, Brits, etc., rather than a single people seeking a solution to a shared problem. They still see it as being a Greek or Spanish or Italian, etc. problem rather than their collective problem. A corollary to this is that the national mindsets among the EU leadership are often at odds as to solutions; for example, the newly elected French President’s concept of spending to get out of the problem conflicts with Chancellor Merkel of Germany’s plan for austerity.

Barrier 2: Considering the duration and lack of a solution to this crisis in its latter stages, it appears that the EU is too unwieldy to respond quickly enough to solve problems in their early stages.

Barrier 3: The lack of EU control over individual countries’ budgets and finances has allowed a single state’s situation to threaten the entire union and the financial security of its citizens.

Possible Solutions Offered

In the last several weeks and months, several solutions have been offered to solve the present financial crisis and to prevent future problems. It is interesting to note that several of these solutions could lead to the Bible’s prophesied final world empire of men. The EU may or may not be the embryo of that final empire, but its actions demonstrate the feasibility of events in our lifetime.

The prophet Daniel symbolically described the final world empire of man as having “toes of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken” (Daniel 2:42). Today’s EU could be similarly described. Economically it is equal to the US in financial strength, but the national mindsets of its people weakens it at moments of crisis. Additionally, its form of government (a supra-national government) is slow to respond because of its large bureaucracy and multiple divisions of government. The current Lisbon Treaty (its constitution) allows three positions of leadership that must agree for the EU to move ahead with solutions.

They are the President of the Parliament (Martin Schultz), the President of the Council (Herman van Rompuy), and the President of the Commission (Jose Manuel Barroso) – the three branches of the EU. The latter two are well known in Europe but lesser known in the US. There is an ongoing uncertainty as to who is really in charge. As has been said, if there is a crisis, whom do you call on the phone, for the EU lacks a single voice.

Several EU foreign ministers have recognized this problem and are now calling for a single super-president with greater power to replace the present system. To achieve this, it has been suggested that the changes be made “without changing the [Lisbon] Treaty.” (For sources go to www.CongdonMinistries.org <http://www.congdonministries.org/ <http://www.congdonministries.org/> > and look under “News you need to know about…”)

The EU learned a lesson with the last treaty—never ask the people to vote for that only hinders and delays a resolution. Historically, when the people have voted “no,” as did Ireland for example, the EU merely presented the matter again until they changed their voted to “yes.” The founder of the EU recommended that the people never be allowed to vote, for they only hinder progress. This is why most EU institutions and member states want more EU secrecy and less transparency (see “Officials, diplomats want even more EU secrecy” by Andrew Rettman at http://euobserver.com/18/115866).

A recent article in a British newspaper suggests that the new super-leader is a means to gaining “sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union.” (see http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/318045/EU-plot-to-scrap-Britain )

For students of the Bible, a path that puts more power into a single leader and becomes more secretive is a path that ultimately leads to the single-man government that John portrays in the book of Revelation, chapter 13. Like many empires before the EU, this union may not fulfill this prophecy, but the path it is headed upon could lead to it.

An additional point of interest is a much talked about two-tier EU, with some nations acting as a smaller unit to speed up solutions to crises and to eliminate hindrances of “too many fingers in the pie.” Germany and France, the two most powerful nations in the EU, have been lead the way in this discussion. Again, the trend suggests that instead of decisions and power resting with the unwieldy 27 countries, a smaller number should be in the first tier to better handle decision-making in a crisis. Britain followed this thinking in World War II with its War Cabinet acting for Parliament. Recognizing the EU’s tendency toward decimal systems, the number 10 could be a likely number chosen for this smaller ruling group of nations (see Daniel 7:24).

A Possible Scenario

It is our belief that the economic crisis will significantly increase in the next few weeks and bring financial hardship to all EU citizens, not just those in Greece. Recent elections have reflected an unwillingness of citizens to sacrifice in order to restore financial stability (a prime issue in the recent French and Greek elections). Many are willing to allow the default of some nations, believing it will not impact their own. With defaults, it will become apparent to all that drastic measures are necessary to prevent a domino effect that results in a complete breakdown of all countries in the EU and around the world.

They will finally see that what hurts one, hurts all, regardless of nationality. Just as people unite to help following a natural disaster, people will start acting as Europeans rather than Germans, French, Greeks, etc. For those resisting, social pressure will increase for them to conform. They will now be ready to support the central government, believing that local national governments are no longer capable of finding viable solutions. Barrier 1 will be reduced significantly.

Desperate for immediate solutions at this point, they will seek a rapid response type of government and call for a single leader to deal with the empire-wide crisis. Recognizing the hindrance of nationalism, they will want a leader who is truly above nationalism (a supra-national leader), one who wants the common good above all. They will no longer see the need for national representation (today there are 27 commissioners, one representing each country). Seeking a rapid solution and change, they will except the change without a treaty change or vote and the governing powers will be reduced to regional representation of perhaps ten regional leaders. This new leadership will be able to respond quickly to eliminate crises. Seeking security the populace will yield up personal and national freedoms. Barrier 2 will be eliminated.

With the creation of regional government within the Union, there will be no need for government and budgets for individual countries. The Union will control the single currency financial system in order to restore financial stability and security to its citizens. Barrier 3 will be eliminated.

This may or may not be the scenario we will see in the near future, but by considering such scenarios, we, as students of the Bible are reminded to be watching and waiting as we redeem the time. The views and opinions expressed are only presented as possible thoughts to enable Bible students to think on current events and develop a world-view based upon the Scriptures.

Heaven’s Eternal Perspective Will Set You Free!


















To fully comprehend this day and hour in which we are living in, one MUST possess an objective ETERNAL Heavenly Biblical perspective. Unless you are regenerated by the act of faith in Jesus Christ and His Saving propitiation for our transgressions (born again), one CANNOT comprehend, yet see the Kingdom of God, let alone the coming Kingdom of Heaven (John 3:1-21). If you reject Christ's saving grace and the Holy Spirit's testimony you will continue to be imprisoned in the delusional fantasy of make believe in your darken mind (2 Thess. 2:9-12).
.
They will continue to be imprisoned in their delusional fantasy of make believe in their darken mind.

As the great American experiment is coming to a horrific conclusion, we remember what our Founding Fathers warned us of, when immorality and godlessness reigns. May it be that American’s will look objectivity outside of their subjective world’s confines to a place of absolute security and assurance. That place is none other than the heavenly throne room of Almighty God (Heb. 4:16). Access is ONLY granted by a saving relationship to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:8-9). When one places their trust in Almighty God's saving solution and remedy - in spirit and truth (John 4:24) -, God will save (deliver) that one from the consequences of sin and also from the limited and temporal confines of this fallen world (Rom 5:12-19, 1 Cor. 2:14, Gal 1:4).

Do you know the Lord Jesus as the Bible (i.e., God’s Infallible Word) clearly teaches? May it be so in these last days? The Son has come to set men free from the prison hold of planet earth and deliver them from their sins and trespasses against Almighty God and to fully enjoy Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS (perfection) forever. That is what it is all about. May it be so with you and your heart! You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
