This article is posted in the right navigation bar under Barber's Corner but in lieu of what is going on in our nation involving corrupt laws and executive orders, I thought it appropriate to post it on the Home Page:

Beware of False Teaching

There is a teaching among evangelicals that dates back to the 1970's promoted by Bill Gothard of the former Basic Youth Conflict Seminars that says we are obligated to be submissive and obey all authorities over us. The teaching held many women and wives in bondage because it taught wives should be submissive to abusive husbands. Gothard later redacted that teaching.

The other teaching I will address in this brief article is that we must obey all governmental authorities according to Romans 13. I mentioned this previously in another article:

Romans 13:1-8 (NKJV)

1  Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2  Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
4  For he is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5  Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience' sake.
6  For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God's ministers attending continually to this very thing.
7  Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
8  Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Now if we read this passage and stop at Verse 1, the implication is that we are to obey all authorities good or bad, but is that what the passage teaches?  Here is where the admonition from Proverbs to get wisdom and understanding comes into play. Notice in Verse 3 Paul says the purpose of authorities (all are under God's authority) is to do good and punish evil. We are not to be afraid of righteous and moral government, but what about evil rulers? Do we have to obey them. The answer is yes and no.

The highest civil law in the United States is the Constitution given to us by godly men - our founding fathers. Was it perfect? No, but it comes close to being the highest standard of law in the world because its overall principles are based on the Word of God. The highest authority and law in this world is the Word of God - the Hebrew and Greek Bible. It is not the Quran or any other book. Proverbs 30:5 says, Every word of God is tested and He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

The authorities ruling under God that administer truth and justice we are to obey. Are the authorities over us in the United States obligated to obey the Constitution? Yes, as it was originally written or the original intent.  When the Congress or the President refuse to obey the Constitution such as Obama has done and is doing, do we have to obey his executive orders or even the rulings of the courts such as the rulings of a liberal court like the 9th Circuit, which has crammed the homosexual agenda down the throats of parents and students in the California public schools or the rulings of the Supreme Court that says the Commerce Clause of the Constitution authorizes Congress to force citizens to purchase government sponsored health insurance? What about gun control, do we have to turn in our weapons or submit to background checks and register them with a photo ID?  The answer to all of these questions is an emphatic NO!  They all violate the Constitution as well as our conscience as Christians and believers in the Word of God. Notice Verse 5 above; the inverse of that is that we cannot for conscience obey the orders of bad rulers that set aside the Constitution and the laws of the land due to their personal preferences.

The Proverb reading for today 28:28 (I hope you are reading the appropriate Proverbs [31 of them] in your daily Bible readings as a Proverb a day will keep the enemy away, that is, if we obey them) says, When the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding; but when the wicked perish, the righteous thrive. The Hebrew meaning of go into hiding means to cover over or conceal.  It would apply to the gun laws that the government is trying to past to take our guns. The Second Amendment gives us the right to own guns and the government shall not infringe upon that right. Therefore, we are not obligated to reveal whether we own guns or how many not even semi-automatic weapons.  Government is a terror to those who do evil.  We already have laws that punish those who use weapons to harm or kill the innocent.  As a society, we have an duty to report anyone who has a mental problem not to punish them but to get them help. The mother of Adam Lanza failed to keep her guns locked up and away from him as she knew he had serious mental problems. More than that the local community had the responsibility to have him institutionalized for his own good and protection. Therefore, guns are not the problem - people are!

The only people who should fear the authorities are those who do evil not those of us who are law abiding citizens. Of course that presupposes we have righteous government. Unfortunately in the United States we do not, maybe at the local level and some states, but the federal government and particularly under Obama is anything but righteous.

When a law is passed by our government or a presidential executive order, we are to filter it thought the lens of the Constitution and the Word of God. If it does not pass muster, we are not to obey it.  If the States would begin to oppose bad federal laws like the "land grabbing" laws that gobble up millions of acres of private lands that forbid the people from having access or the restrictive EPA rules that prevent farmers from having water to irrigate their crops, the government would be in a precarious position. In addition, if the government refuses to obey its own federal statutes regarding protecting our borders by arresting and deporting ALL illegal aliens, the States should refuse to obey the government such as the Arizona Governor has tried to do. The people of the United States of America are not required to obey wicked ruthless rulers who rule by their personal preferences and not by the Constitution and laws of the land. Obama and his AG, Eric Holder, arrogantly defy the federal Marriage Protection Act that defines marriage as between one man and one woman as well as Black on White voter crime.  If the federal government is not going to obey Constitution law because they don't agree with it, then why do we, THE PEOPLE, think we have to obey wicked laws? WE DON'T.

Now let me make it very clear; in disobeying evil rulers and their laws, it does not mean we resort to violence against them unless it is self defense. Read the disclaimer at the top of this page where this website denounces violence against the government in order to overthrow it or resist it. If the government becomes tyrannical and tries to implement martial law and throw out the Constitution, then we have a right to resist if it means using weapons to protect our rights and families.

I listened to a video of a man who claims to have information from a very high military source that says Obama has secretly questioned top military brass if they would order our troops to fire upon the American people in the event of civil disobedience. I tend to stay away from internet articles and videos that make strong proclamations, but will not reveal their sources so I have not posted the video.

Romans 13 is not a mandate to blindly obey every authority and their rulings. If we obey bad laws we are partner to evil and the Bible I read says we are to resist EVERY FORM of evil.

Christians sometimes forget we have weapons greater than material or physical ones. We have spiritual weapons  - prayer and the Word of God. Believers are supposed to be skilled in spiritual warfare, but unfortunately most don't know anything about it because it is not taught by the ministers. They don't know anything about it either so how can they teach it.

May the Lord grant us wisdom and understanding in all matters particularly as it applies to government and may we not be found to be simpletons, but wiser than serpents.

Christian Pastor Warns Christians And Jews To Stand-up To Islam Or Lose Their Countries

After 2000 Years All Christians Leave Mosul

Assyrian Christians have lived in the Iraqi city of Mosul since the time immediately following Christ's crucifixion, resurrection and ascension back to heaven and the establishment of the Christian Church in the Middle East. Since the American invasion of Iraq in 2003 over a million Christians have fled Iraq. The same holds true for Syria.  The Middle East is becoming Christian-less as the Muslims take over the region (read this article at http://theweek.com/article/index/255403/the-worlds-most-ancient-christian-communities-are-being-destroyed-mdash-and-no-one-cares).

Jesus told us in Matthew 24 the Middle East would become a killing field for Christians: 

Matthew 24:4-14 (NLT)

4  Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you,
5  for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.
6  And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.
7  Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.
8  But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.
9  “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.
10  And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.
11  And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.
12  Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.
13  But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
14  And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.

Note: Pretrib proponents including their scholars try to make Matthew 24 a Jewish text - something I discuss in my Day of the Lord book, but it is more about the persecution of Christians than other ethnicities including Jews.  The above article supports that it is Christians that are being murdered, be-headed and slaughtered by Muslims in the Middle East not Jews. When Jesus warned those in Judea to flee at the time of the Abomination of Desolation, He was warning Christians, particularly Jewish Christians to flee the city of Jerusalem, not secular Jews. Why? Because the majority of Jews living in Jerusalem at the time of the AOD will give their allegiance to the Jewish Antichrist. The secular Jews will also hate Jewish Christians and turn them in the New World Order system of the Antichrist to be imprisoned and killed. This will fulfill and already is Matthew 24: 9.

Orthodox Jews Building 3rd Temple


This is not the temple of the Lord. The Lord Jesus is the true temple and His spiritual people also His temple:  Read the 10th Chapter or Hebrews (actually the whole book) and pay attention to Verses 26-31. Those verses clearly reveal the shame of trying to reconstruct a third temple and is wicked rebellion against the blood sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. In fact, this passage says to rebuild another physical temple in the land of Israel is the same as trampling the Son of God (Jesus) underfoot, treating His blood sacrifice and the New Covenant as an unholy thing and insulting the Spirit of Grace. This is precisely what the orthodox Jews with the Temple Institute are doing!  Christian evangelicals need to heed the Book of Hebrews and stop pandering to secular and religious Zionism as some great spiritual and prophetic event.  I understand some Christians even send money to support the building of this 3rd temple. That is gross ignorance of the Word of God and the Church of the Lord Jesus as well as what God is up to - building the One New Man (spiritual temples) composed of saved Jews and Gentiles - the real Israel of God.

Judges Turning America Into A Sodomite Nation

"The movement sweeping across America to authorize same-sex “marriage” largely has been pushed by individual judges who have signed onto the movement to overthrow the millennia-old idea that it is a man and a woman who make a married couple".


This article supports what I have been saying for some time - that the United States of America is fast becoming a full-bloom sodomy nation, but it will not occur without a price - the judgment of a Holy and Righteous God who sits in the heavens and watches all that is transpiring on planet earth. When the human race chooses to deny that God even exist and ignores His Word and sinning without restraint, then the only thing left for Him to do is JUDGMENT!  America is so close to the severe judgment of God that if there was even the smallest understanding of what that means would send people flocking to the Churches in confession and repentance.

The judgment of Almighty God is not something to be taken lightly or mocked and sneered at.  Ask the people of Noah's Day and the flood that killed off an entire human race except Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives about the severe judgment of God. Ask the ancient nations that no longer exist about God's judgment - Assyria, Babylon, Greece and Rome. Ask the people of Sodom and Gomorrah about the severe judgment of God. Ask the Israelites - the Northern and Southern Kingdoms about God's threats of judgment for their sins and turning their back to Him. Ask Hitler, Mussolini, the emperor of Japan,etc., about the judgment of God.  The principal difference between the judgment of world leaders and nations from the flood of Noah's day and Sodom and Gomorrah is that the latter was the direct judgment of God - a judgment that originated from heaven. 

Is the United States about to experience the direct judgment of God?  I believe with all my heart that is what is about to happen to America unless we repent. Remember the reason God did not destroy Nineveh (the capital of Assyria) was that the King along with the people repented in Sackcloth and ashes. However, 40 years later God destroyed Nineveh and the kingdom of Assyria just as His prophet Jonah told them. I believe for American to be spared the judgment of God, the leaders of this nation will have to get down on their knees and repent along with the people.

I know some of my readers do not like me preaching that God is going to judge the United States unless we repent and tell me about it, but I will  stop warning of judgment when God tells me to. So far He has not told me to. When the Lord called me to the ministry of the Word on April 25, 1971, laying prostate on our living room floor at about 2:00 A.M. with my face in my Bible the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me that I was not going to have an easy ministry, but would be difficult and hard because I would preach and teach the truth without compromise and the judgment of God. I did not understand the full impact of that for many years, but have come to realize the truth of it. In some situations I caused my own trouble by getting into the flesh, but in most cases it was because I taught the uncompromising truth, the return of the Lord and judgment.

Will God destroy the whole nation or will He destroy a city or cities or a region?  I do not know that is in God's hands. I just know what I saw in the Vision of the Inverted Pyramid - a tremendous volcano and earthquake on the West Coast in the Washington State - Oregon area with seas of hot molten lava running like a river down the West Coast destroying everything in its path with millions fleeing to the East to escape the horror.

God's strange work is His judgment because He wants the people to love and obey Him so He can bless them. His judgment is His mercy to save the people from destroying themselves with their sin and wickedness. AMERICA IS ABOUT TO SELF-DESTRUCT AND BECAUSE GOD LOVES AMERICA HE MAY HAVE TO SEND JUDGMENT!

Will The Real New Testament Church Come Forward

In the 1950's there was a game show on TV (black and white in those days) and I forget the name, but the contestants (usually three) would try to fool a panel of four people (two men and two women) into who the real person was - one of the three was the real person.  Each of the panelists would wear a blindfold where they could not see, but only hear the contestants. The anchor person of the show would moderate the game and would start off by giving some background of the real person then invite the three contestants to come and in and be seated while the panelists had on their blindfolds. Each panelists would get two attempts to guess who the real person was by asking questions. Their success ratio was about 50-50. 

For the past three years Deb and I have been visiting Churches in our area in an effort to unite with them in worship and fellowship. We have visited several Baptist, Bible, and Non-Denominational Churches and had decided to unite with a medium to large size Bible Church. However, we discovered when we attended the New Members Enrollment Class, they were hyper-Calvinists. We are not so our membership was rejected. First time in over 40 years of ministry I have been told I could not be a member of a so-called Christian Church. 

For those who do not know what a hyper-Calvinist doctrine is, it is that God is sovereign in all matters including salvation and it is He who chooses those He elects to receive salvation while others are not included and have no choice in determining their eternal state. If they are not of the elect, their destiny is hell and the Lake of Fire. In other words they have no free will to either accept or reject God's offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. That is a total heretical doctrine and cannot be supported by the whole context of Scripture. Is God sovereign?  Certainly, but His elective grace is in the locality of salvation, namely that He chooses those to salvation in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. His offer of salvation extends to all mankind if they will obey the gospel and accept the Lord Jesus as Lord and Savior. That is the meaning of the Scripture that says "Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father except through Him (Jesus)". You can see that God's election is centered in the finished work of Jesus on the cross. This is the way God has elected to save those who will believe. It is what Jesus called the "narrow road" and few be that find it.  God's message is "whosoever will may come and be saved", but you have to do it His way - the cross and resurrection of Jesus. If someone does not want to accept that truth and the way, then they will not be chosen to salvation. It is that simple.

We were not upset the Bible Church rejected our membership for we could not worship there anyway.

Continuing our efforts to find a New Testament Church that is true in worship and practice to New Testament doctrine, we visited another Church this past Sunday. It is a non-denominational congregation whose pastor is a former Baptist Minister. When we arrived for the 11:00 service, we noticed very few and I mean very few people were carrying Bibles as they entered the sanctuary. That usually means the pastor is not a Bible teacher or the emphasis is more on so-called praise and worship (emotional electronic rock sounding music) and less on sound biblical preaching and teaching.

When we sat down we observed people coming in dressed in shorts both men and women (some of the young girls had on tight short-shorts) and bringing coffee and snacks in the sanctuary. 4.5 out of 5 people had no Bible. The rock band on stage was warming up to start the praise and worship service. There was no choir (a Church choir is becoming a rarity in the Churches these days and the sacred hymns have been replaced by rock lyrics, which I can never remember).  Deb leaned over and said she had bad vibes about the service. I agreed. 

The rock band started their music and of course everyone had to stand while they sang the same lyrics over and over - a commonality of Charismatic non-denominational so-called Churches. I detest this kind of music for it does nothing but excite the soul not the spirit. We decided we had seen enough and left. This has happened to us several times in the past three years since we moved to our presence residence in North Texas. As we were walking out I remarked to Deb, "where is the true Church of the Lord Jesus Christ?"  We drove to a restaurant and had lunch.

The point I am making is the modern Church has determined the traditional Church that focused on Bible preaching and teaching as the principal and most important part of Sunday worship coupled with an excellent Music Director, choir, orchestra and the singing of the sacred hymns is no longer in sync and outdated. Christians used to gather for worship with Bible in hand eager to hear a message from the man of God as well as congregation singing accompanied by a pianist or organist and they dressed modestly and appropriately. 

What started this or what brought about the change?  That is not hard to answer. It began with Christian youth attending secular rock concerts where they sway and swoon with the soulical rock beat. Christian adults got caught-up in this rock culture also and no longer wanted to hear and sing the old sacred hymns or even the moving music specials by a talented choir.  They wanted to be moved by the rock beat that stimulated their fleshly souls not their born-again spirits.  The pastors and elders realized that to attract the soulish youth they had to have an order of service that appealed to their appetite for rock music. Thus was born the so-called "praise and worship" emphasis. Instead of mature godly men and women leading the music program, immature youth became the "worship leaders" and set the tone for the worship service. Not long afterward, Churches starting having two services - one for the older senior adults called the traditional service and a contemporary service for the rock-swinging youth that craved rock bands.  A so-called Christian Rock concert is not much different than a secular Rock concert in terms of the music. The beat is the same - ROCK!  Who is the winner in this situation? Satan is for he has divided the Church between the Youth and the adults. You end up with two Churches not one unified body.  Now I realize many adults now prefer the praise and worship rock churches over the traditional Word-focused congregations. However, we now have a large number or Christian babies that are shallow in the Word of God.  The Church is supposed to be a "Bible College" so to speak, that is, where they are fed the meat of the Word and can grow in knowledge and wisdom and rightly divide the Word of truth.

So as the title of this article asks, Where is the real New Testament Church where the saints hunger and thirst for the Word of God rather than to be swooned and swayed by loud rock music that does absolutely nothing for the spirit? Where is the Church that understands the House of God is the habitation of the Holy Spirit and dresses decently and modestly in honor of His presence?  We cannot seem to find one in our area.  Most of the pulpits are nothing but shallow sermonnetts or motivational speeches that offer the saints baby pablum instead of strong meat.  The Churches need revival and to get back to the fundamentals of the faith - strong preaching and teaching and music that honors the Holy Spirit and moves the spirit not the soul.

Are Demons Responsible For Our Problems?

The following is a dialogue with a long-time reader of my website. While her name will remain confidential, I am sure she will not mind my sharing our discussion of this topic. Perhaps others have the same questions. 

Over the years that we have communicated, one thing I have noticed about your difficulty in passing the bar exam - you blame it on demons.  While demons are real for sure, they are not responsible for all our problems.  Many of our problems are of our own making.  Demons cannot attack or harass us unless we give them an entry way into the soul area.  If that is the case, then do some soul searching and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any area of demonic invasion as well as how they were able to gain access. This must be done in absolute faith, that is, if you ask the Holy Spirit (actually you ask the Lord for the Holy Spirit to minister to you in this area) to reveal the presence of demons you must believe He will do that otherwise James 1:2-8 comes into play and your prayer meaningless.

If your sin caused the demonic invasion, then you must confess and repent of that sin. Once you have cleansed that area by confession and repentance, (I John 8-10) then ask the Lord to seal off that area by His precious blood whereby the demon cannot return. Remember if we don't keep our deliverance firm, the demons can come back and be much worse than before. (Luke 11:24-26).

I am not implying you have any demons. More likely it may simply be a problem with the sin nature - it is capable of much sin without any demons involved. The sin nature is lazy and always seeks the path of least resistance.  Ask the Lord by the Holy Spirit to strengthen you mind and allow you to concentrate on your studies. If it is not a demonic problem but you start attacking or blaming demons for the problem - guess what, they will come because they work through lies.

Make sure the problem is a demonic matter when it fact it could be your own doing.  The Lord does not want us to dwell on demons (See Philippians 4:8). We are to meditate on the Word of God and speak the truth out our mouths about how God sees us - righteous in Christ Jesus. Meditate on righteousness which we have by the blood sacrifice of Jesus. If you sense a demonic presence (make sure it is real) speak the blood Scriptures out loud and sing songs about the blood. Demons cannot stand the blood so speak and sing about the blood and they will take a hike.  If they come back to check you out, the speak and sing again about the blood and they will flee from you. (James 4:7).

Remember you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus our Lord and no demon can touch you unless you give them access by sin and disobedience.  Sometimes they enter by traumatic experience and sometimes they are ancestral demons via the bloodline. That takes an experienced Spirit-filled person in deliverance ministry to deal with Ancestral Demons.

Hope this helps.

God bless.

Judge Overturns Kentucky's Ban On Gay Marriage

As I have mentioned several times, the Judicial Branch is fulfilling Luke 17:28 and moving the United States into a Sodomite nation - something that has God's attention though most may not know it or even care about the issue.

Genesis 6:1-9 (NKJV)

1  Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
2  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3  And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."
4  There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6  And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7  So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
9  This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.

This passage is highly debated as to the intent of the "Sons of God going into the daughters of men."  While it is not my purpose in this article to get into all the theology of the passage (hundreds of books have been written about who the Sons of God were), I will mention a couple of things that relate to my article.  The phrase, "sons of God" is benay Ha Elohim in Hebrew. The same phrase is used in Job 38:7

7  When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?  Obviously from this verse, the context is before the creation of man or at the time God was creating the universe. Therefore, the obvious meaning is the angels of God and notice the Job passage says "All" the sons of God which would include both the good and bad angels (perhaps before the fall of Satan).  The angels watched in amazement while God created the universe. 

The difficult part of the passage in Genesis is the meaning of "the sons of God came into the daughters of men."  Was that a sexual relationship between two different orders of creation - angels and men? We know from 6:4 children were born when the sons of God cohabited with the daughters or men. Notice also in 6:1 it says men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them. It says nothing about the sons of God,  the benay ha elohim (angels) cohabited with humans.  At that time sexual relations were normal - men were taking wives of the opposite sex and children were born to them. But when we come to Verses 2-4, some type of perversion took place - angels having sex with human women. How is that possible? 

I just finished reading Tom Horn's book, Zenith 2016, in which he deals in detail with the cohabitation of fallen angels (demons) with human women. I don't have the time or space in this article to cover his rendition of the subject, but here are a few quotations from Chapter 8, The Luciferian Science of Deity Resurrection: 

"As far back as the beginning of time and within every major culture of the ancient world, the astonishingly consistent story is told of 'gods' that descended from heaven and materialized in bodies of flesh. From Rome to Greece--and before that, to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Sumer---the earliest records of civilization tell of the era when powerful beings known to the Hebrews as Watchers and in the book of Genesis as the benei ha-elohim (sons of God) mingled themselves with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial known as nephilim".

The apocryphal book of Enoch gives a name to the angels involved in this cosmic conspiracy, calling them 'Watchers.'  We read:

"And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages and lo! the Watchers called me--Enoch the scribe--and said to me: 'Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled  themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives:  Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children [the Nephilim], The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain (I Enoch 10:3-8)."

"The Interlinear Hebrew Bible offers an interesting interpretation of Genesis 6:2 in this regard when the KJV says, 'The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair', the IHN interprets this as: 'The benei Elohim saw the daughters of Adam, that they were fit extensions.
The term fit extensions seems applicable when the whole of the ancient record is understood to mean  that the Watchers wanted to leave their proper sphere of existence in order to enter earth's three-dimensional reality. They viewed women--or at least their genetic material --as part of the formula for accomplishing this task. Departing the proper habitation God had assigned them was grievous to the Lord and led to divine penalization. Jude described it this way: The angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day (Jude 6)."

"Stephen Quayle, in his book, Genesis 6 Giants, explains:  'The collective memories in the form of myths, fables, and fairy tales from various cultures and ages of mankind are overwhelming evidence that the Nephilim existed.' All of this indicates that Watchers not only modified human  DNA during the construction of the Nephilim, but animals as well, a point the book of Enoch supports, saying in the 7th chapter that the fallen angels 'sinned' against animals as well".  Horn goes into much more detail about the corrupted race of angels with humans that caused God to destroy the world of Noah's day. 

When I was doing research for my article, The 120-Year End-Time Generation (Notice I have removed it from my website as I am in the process of revising it due to further understanding of prophecy), I noticed from the Greek text of Matthew 24 where Jesus mentions the last days before His return will resemble the days of Noah, the meaning is "just like" the days of Noah.  From that I saw that the last generation before the Second Coming will be 120 years. The question is when did the last 120 years begin (I first thought 1897 and ending in 2017-18, but I am revisiting that and will re-post the article soon).  Moreover, there was a corruption of the natural order of God's creation - fallen angels (demons) having sex with human women and producing a mutated offspring - the nephilim.  The human race was so contaminated with this corrupt seed that God had to destroy it for only one human family was left that had not affected by this grievous sin - Noah and his family.  If God destroyed the entire human race with a flood save Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives, then how were there Nephilim on the earth after the flood?  God never said Noah's wife and his sons and their wives were righteous in his sight - only Noah. We know that Ham committed a homosexual act on Noah, even the Hebrew Bible supports that (I once wrote an article about that situation and was blasted by a Jewish Rabbi who apparently didn't even know his own Hebrew Bible - not surprising since the Hebrew Bible to the Rabbi's is the Babylonian Talmud, which is a corruption of the original Hebrew as written by Moses).

Now, I have shared all this for the intent of bringing to light that the global spread of homosexuality and particularly here in the United States is a fulfillment of the Days of Noah when violence filled the earth as well as perversion. Luke 17:28 says this:

Luke 17:28-30 (KJV)

28  Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29  But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30  Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

The Greek meaning of the word, "planted" is to instill a doctrine in the earth.  The United States Supreme Court and the Judicial system have been establishing the doctrine of perversion in this nation and in the earth with the overturning of the Texas Sodomy Law in 2003.  The Obama administration has ordered overseas embassies to fly the rainbow (homosexual) flag alongside the American flag in support of global sodomy.

The judge that ruled against the ban on same-sex marriage in Kentucky said this:

"Heyburn [the judge who ruled against the Kentucky ban on same-sex marriage], an appointee of President George H.W. Bush, dismissed the governor's argument that Kentucky's prohibition encouraged, promoted and supported relationships among people who have the "natural ability to procreate" and a stable birth rate ensures the state's long-term economic stability.

"These arguments are not those of serious people," Heyburn wrote. What he didn't say was it was the argument of moral people. Godly morality has no compass with the U.S. Judicial system as well as many liberals on the left. 

If the Lord God was grieved in His heart of the corruption He saw in the world before the flood, how much more is he grieved by what He is witnessing in the United States and around the world to promote and legalize sodomy - an act both Old and New Testaments refer to as an abomination.

I know I have mentioned it before, but in a Bill Gothard seminar in Dallas, Texas (Institute In Basic Youth Conflicts) in 1976, Bill showed the large audience of about 8-10,000 people a graph depicting the growth and spread of concupiscence (strong sexual desire of an immoral nature) and lasciviousness (lewd sexual desire), particularly homosexuality, reaching the apex of legalized behavior, a nation so disposed, will experience the certain judgment of God.

The United States of America in its smug intellectual tolerance for perversion if not re-directed to change course of direction away from the sin of homosexuality has a controversy with the God of heaven and earth and will feel His wrath just as did Sodom and Gomorrah - make no mistake about it. I know many are praying for this nation to repent and turn back to God as I have been doing for many years. However, I do not see any sign of that happening, but I keep looking and hoping. I do know this as far as nations go - that they do not learn righteousness except by judgment:

Isaiah 26:9 (KJV)

9  With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Will God destroy a city or cities or perhaps a state or a geographical region before this nation gets the message - that God hates perversion? God's judgment upon the sin of homosexuality is His mercy for if left alone, it will destroy this whole nation and I believe God wants America to repent. He has already given us several wake-up calls, but few understand that.  9-11, Katrina and Rita in which several cities were destroyed along the Gulf Coast and many other disasters are evidence God is judging America, but these are mild in comparison to what He may do because of the spread of homosexuality into all 50 states, that is, forcing it upon the people as the moral equivalent of heterosexuality. 

I have written several times about the Vision of the Inverted Pyramid the Lord gave the very day Terri Schiavo died on March 31, 2005 when she had been disconnected from her life support system 13 days before on March 18, 2005. She literally starved to death by order of the Florida State Supreme Court. That very morning, March 31, 2005, I was reading Proverbs 31 (there are 31 Proverbs - a proverb a day keeps the devil a way) and noticed Verses 8-9 (by the way, she died at approximately 9:00 AM):

Proverbs 31:8-9 (KJV)

8  Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
9  Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

As I was praying that morning over this text, the Lord showed me a vision of an inverted pyramid held across a map of the United States in which the right and left bases connected the states of New York city and Washington respectively and the inverted tip or point was at the juncture of Texas and Louisiana. 9-11 occurred in New York City and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita occurred in Texas and Louisiana and almost wiped out the city of New Orleans and completely destroyed several cities on the Gulf Coast. Since God does things in a series of 3's, I expect an third disaster to occur on the West Coast in the Washington - Oregon area.  In fact, in the vision I saw rivers of molten lava flowing down the West Coast wiping out cities in its path - millions were fleeing for safety toward the East. What God was saying in this vision (I have only been given two visions in over 40 years of Christian ministry) or what I believe He was saying is that He is going to turn the United States upside down to sift the filth out of it - our wicked sin for we are like Moab at ease on our lees.

Jeremiah 48:11-13 (KJV)

11  Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.
12  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will send unto him wanderers, that shall cause him to wander, and shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles.
13  And Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was ashamed of Bethel their confidence. 

It just so happens that Washington State is the seed-bed of bestiality - humans having sex with animals. There is a large horse ranch that attracts hundreds if not thousands of perverted people to come and have sex with horses.  A local Sheriff appeared on Bill O'Reilly some years ago and testified that he could not mention in public what goes on at that ranch. The physician at one of the local hospitals said they are treating bizarre and strange diseases from people taking part in the lewd acts.  Washington State has also become a Muslim haven.

The prophecy of the book of Revelation tells us that Satan with his fallen angels shall be expelled from heaven at the beginning of the Great Tribulation (the last 3 1/2 years) and cast down to the earth.  We also know from Revelation 9:1-12 at the 5th Trumpet Judgment, the demons presently held in the bottomless pit shall be loosed (let out) to roam the earth and torment mankind - those that have the Mark of the Beast. These may reenact the Days of Noah when the Nephilim were on the earth and having sex with human women, except this time it will involve demonic invasion and possession.  The one directing the action of the 5th Trumpet is Satan - 9:1, 11.

What is our hope in times like these and for what is coming during the tribulation? Is it the great snatch or pretrib rapture?  No, the great hope is that the Church of the Lord Jesus will be on this earth bearing witness to the gospel message to the millions caught-up in the judgments of God.  In other words, the Church will provide the message of hope for these lost souls. The gospel message today and in the future times of tribulation and persecution is that Jesus as the Son of God came to this earth, lived a perfect life without sin, offered that perfect sinless life upon a rugged tree (cross) as a sacrifice for the sins of humanity, was buried in an empty tomb and three days later rose bodily from the grave to justify the many who would believe in Him. No other entity has been given the commission to share and spread the gospel to the lost world except the Church of the Lord Jesus. If the aggregate Church was raptured out of the sphere of this earth to heaven before the tribulation, there would be no one to share the good news (the gospel) with the lost. The Church of the redeemed and the gospel message it preaches is today and will be in the days of tribulation the hope of the lost.

We must continue praying for repentance to come to the United States, but we must be prepared for judgment if God so chooses to bring repentance in that fashion.

Conditions For the 3rd Temple Now Being Met?

According to the article, “In truth, the fate of the entire world depends on the red heifer,” the institute says".

Ever so often the doctrine of the red heifer surfaces that stirs apocalyptic emotions among orthodox Jews and Evangelical Christians that don't seem to understand this 3rd temple will be the temple of the Antichrist. In order to purify the temple and all of the vessels involved with temple worship, a perfect red heifer specimen has to be sacrificed and its ashes used in a mixture to cleanse the temple proper and the priesthood.  This is unfortunately ignorant Jewish dogma that willfully ignores the New Covenant revelation of Jesus who fulfilled all the laws regarding the blood sacrifice and the need for a red heifer cleansing agent.

Consider the book of Hebrews:

Hebrews 9:1-28 (NKJV)

1  Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and the earthly sanctuary.
2  For a tabernacle was prepared: the first part, in which was the lampstand, the table, and the showbread, which is called the sanctuary;
3  and behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All,
4  which had the golden censer and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden pot that had the manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant;
5  and above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail.
6  Now when these things had been thus prepared, the priests always went into the first part of the tabernacle, performing the services.
But into the second part the high priest went alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and for the people's sins committed in ignorance;
8  the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.
9  It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience--
10  concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.
11  But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
12  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
13  For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh,
14  how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
15  And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
16  For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
17  For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.
18  Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood.
19  For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
20  saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you."
21  Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry.
22  And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.
23  Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24  For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
25  not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another--
26  He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
27  And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
28  so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

The fate of the entire world does not depend on the ashes of a red heifer, but on the eternal blood sacrifice of the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ!

No amount of ashes of an animal no matter how perfect will cleanse the human heart of inherent sin. The Old Covenant ashes of the red heifer including all the blood ceremonial activities of the Jewish temple were the shadows of things to come, not the substance. The substance has come in the body of the Lord Jesus which he willingly offered on the cross as the medium of forgiveness for mankind's sins.  There is no forgiveness apart from the blood sacrifice of the Lord Jesus no matter how many New Testament Bibles the orthodox rabbis tear up and declare fit for the garbage can of history.  The Jews worship in stubborn total ignorance of the truth and they are not without sin and are not the chosen people because of their natural inheritance.  They, like lost Gentiles must receive and accept by faith the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ or they are outside the Covenants (both of them) of God and without anyway to be saved and that is the truth whether they believe it or not!

Is Prophecy Being Fulfilled Now In Iraq And Iran?

If you are a student of Bible prophecy, then I want you to get your Bible out and open it to Daniel chapter 8. Now, if you consult nearly any commentary on the Book of Daniel, you’ll find they nearly all interpret this prophecy as fulfilled in history. The prophecy begins with a ram butting to the west, to the north and to the south, which most believe refers to the historical conquests of the Medo-Persian Empire:

[B]ehold, a ram which had two horns was standing in front of the canal. Now the two horns were long, but one was longer than the other, with the longer one coming up last. I saw the ram butting westward, northward, and southward, and no other beasts could stand before him nor was there anyone to rescue from his power, but he did as he pleased and magnified himself. (vv. 3-4)...Read the full article.

Comment:

While I do not agree with Joel Richardson's Muslim Antichrist theory, I do agree with him that Daniel 8 is not about some ancient historical kingdom such as Medo-Persia and Greece. See my article in the Prophecy Section - Some Observations About Daniel 8.

Daniel 8 is about the time of the end, which is the last seven years before the Lord returns on the posttrib Day of the Lord. More specifically, the time of the end refers to the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord - the last 3 1/2 years plus 1 - but the Day of the Lord is not a normal earth day. It is something of a time warp. 

The events in Iraq and Iran are a harbinger of what is to come to fulfill Daniel 8.

What Does the Bible Say About the Fate of Iraq (Ancient Persia)?

When President George Bush (43) decided to go war with Iraq, I wrote him a lengthy letter warning him about getting involved in Iraq because the Old Testament prophets tell us who and how Iraq is going to be destroyed and it is not going to be the United States that does it.   

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Coming Destruction Of Iraq (ancient Babylon)
March 17, 2003
Dr. Allen Barber

Notice I wrote the following article the day Bush decided to go to war with Iraq.

I call your attention to Isaiah 13:17-22:

“17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.  18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.    19 And Babylon [Iraq], the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.    20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.   21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.   22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.”

“This prophecy has never been fulfilled in past history for Iraq (Babylon) has continued as a nation since the tower of Babel even though they were conquered by other nations.  This prophecy of Isaiah says a time when come when God will rouse the Medes (Modern day Turkey, Iran, and the Kurds; also Central Asia and/or the states of the former Soviet Union) to wipe out Babylon (Iraq) to the extent that it will never be inhabited again.  The destruction is compared to Sodom and Gomorrah.”  The United States has the capacity to wipe Iraq off the face of the earth, but God says that task belongs to the Medes, not the U.S.”

“According to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, the ancient Medes and Elamites merged into Persia (Modern Iran) and became part of that kingdom.”  We know that Russia is assisting with Iran’s nuclear program and that both Russia and Iran are involved in a future war against Israel.” 

“Another passage in Isaiah 21:1-10, mentions the Median (Iranian/Turkey/Central Asia Coalition) destruction of Iraq: 

“1 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land.  2 A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.  3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it. 4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me. 5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, and anoint the shield.  6 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.  7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:  8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:    9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.   10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.”

“The double reference to the fall of physical Babylon could mean the first time the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon in the 6th Century B.C. and the future fall of Babylon in the end time (The period in which we live today) by the modern kingdom of the Medes. 

While Isaiah and Jeremiah prophesied the destruction of physical Babylon, Revelation speaks of the destruction of the Mystery form of political and religious Babylon:

“1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.  2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.  3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.   4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.   6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.   7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.  8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.   9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,   10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come”  (Rev. 18:1-10).

“Notice in Revelation it refers to the city of Babylon and not the nation indicating something else is implied.  In my opinion, I believe Revelation is speaking of the New World Order that consists of the same religious and political spirit of ancient Babylon that Satan ruled over and spread the worship of the Sun-god deity throughout the world.  The mystery form indicates that the power behind it will remain hidden until the time comes for the unveiling of the Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet at the mid-point of the tribulation period.”   I do not believe the present situation involving the U.S. – Iraqi War is the fulfillment of Revelation 18 because that takes place at the end of the tribulation period.”

Jeremiah supports the prophecy of Isaiah in calling for the destruction of Babylon (Iraq) by the Medes:

“27 Set ye up a standard in the land, blow the trumpet among the nations, prepare the nations against her, call together against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz; appoint a captain against her; cause the horses to come up as the rough caterpillars.  28 Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his dominion.  29 And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant” (Jer. 51:27-29).

“Notice the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz are mentioned in the alliance with the Medes. Ararat is the modern nation of Turkey and Minni and Ashchenaz are Armenian nations of Central Asia and part of eastern Turkey and northern Iraq – the Kurds.”

“47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment upon the graven images of Babylon: and her whole land shall be confounded, and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.  48 Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD.   49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth” (Jer. 51:47-49). 

Although it is not clear, the spoilers from the north could imply that Russia is involved with the future destruction of Babylon. 

From these Scriptures, it is clear that God will destroy modern Iraq (Ancient Babylon) with a coalition led by the Medes not the U.S.”  If I were going on pure logic, I would not pick Iran, Turkey, and the kingdoms of Central Asia to destroy Iraq, but the Bible is clear that God will use the Medes to totally wipe out Babylon from being a nation. 

Again, no one that I am reading is predicting this, but I will stay with the Word of God.   The only person that I have heard comment on this is Dr. Jimmy DeYoung.  Most are predicting that the U.S. will destroy the armies of Iraq within a matter of weeks.  That may happen, but I have problems with that scenario for the following reasons:

(1)    If the U.S. conquers Iraq and installs a democracy causing Iraq to no longer be a threat to Israel and the other Middle Eastern nations, that would seem to circumvent the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah for a future destruction.  However, world conditions could change that.  
(2)    The timing does not appear to be right for Iraq to be destroyed.
(3)    The U.S. is not God’s choice to destroy Iraq.” 

If America goes to war with Iraq and invades the whole nation, many innocent Iraqis are going to be killed – it will be unavoidable.  If the military plan backfires, many American soldiers are going to die, maybe record numbers.   This may be the military setback I have been predicting since March 1994 because our nation is guilty of much iniquity – turning our back on the grace, mercy and favor of the Lord. In addition trusting in our superpower status instead of trusting in the Lord’s protection.

Saddam is not going to give up or go into exile, and he will fight a much different war than he did in Gulf War I.  Then there is the unknown, the unforeseen and the unexpected in any war plans.  As a Marine in Vietnam, we planned our operations to the “nth” degree and we were always well prepared to execute it, but sometimes things did not go as we planned and the enemy surprised us.  Before we regrouped, we had sustained heavy casualties.

I pray this is not the situation with Iraq, but the thing that concerns me is the silence of China and the threat by the U.S. to unilaterally destroy the credibility of the United Nations – something the New World Order cannot tolerate.   This situation has all the markings of something ugly before the dust settles.  This may be the “attention getter” from the Lord God that either America repents or is destroyed. 

May God help us to fall on our faces and repent of our national and personal sins before our sins destroy us.  This is the time for the saints to pray and fast for REPENTANCE not only for our nation, but also for the Church.

I was listening to Fox News while writing this and Shawn Hannity says this is a righteous war, meaning that we are the righteous nation and Iraq is the evil nation.  I wonder how God sees it from His eyes.

Post Iraqi War Comment

While the United States did defeat the Iraqi army and captured Saddam Hussein later to be hung by the Shiites, we did not destroy the country thus we did not fulfill the prophecies mentioned in the above passages.  Now that the off-shoot of Al Qaeda, the ISIS insurgency, has conquered 1/3 of Irag and moving toward Baghdad combined with the insertion of Iran's Revolutionary Army with Obama's blessings, the biblical scenario of the Medes destroying Iraq (Babylon) seems to be fitting into place. However, the final destruction of Iraq will not occur until the Great Tribulation. This situation in Iraq could be a warning from God that the long predicted tribulation  period is about to commence.

We shall to wait and see.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

I wrote the following a few months back and will renew the series in the next couple of days. In the future, I will write more articles on biblical issues and probably less on news articles.  Instead of posting several news articles daily, I will pick one to comment on that has current and future implications for the biblical worldview in contrast to the Satanic worldview - the coming New World Order. 

Gog and Magog, Daniel and Revelation

As I announced a couple of weeks ago, I am going to write commentary on Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39, Revelation 20), Daniel 2, 7-8, 9-12, and Revelation - selected chapters that deal with the Seal, Trumpet and Bowl Judgments. I do not have a set outline to write from, but will follow the Holy Spirit's lead gleaned from over 40 years of study and research of these passages. It should be interesting so hope it will be a blessing to those who participate in the study of these prophetic teachings.

I have just completed reading Sir Isaac Newton's little known work on Daniel and Revelation, Clarence Larkin's (a Pretrib scholar) book on Revelation and Thomas Horn's book, Zenith 2016.  Sir Isaac Newton's book was disappointing as it is obvious he was an historicist meaning he believed most if not all the books of Daniel and Revelation have been fulfilled in history past. Writing like the intellectual and scientist he was, some of his commentary was difficult to follow and actually made no sense. However, he published the book in 1733 and therefore, did not have the advantage we do today of much prophecy either fulfilled or the visible stages set for their fulfillment. Clarence Larkin's book (when I was a Pretrib believer I promoted his commentary as the truth about end-time prophecy) was written in 1919 and like Newton did not have the insight of present world conditions. However, even though Larkin was a pretribber, he presents some interesting thoughts about the Antichrist, False Prophet and the Harlot Religious system.  He believed as I do that the Antichrist and False Prophet are "real" human personages not governments or systems.  Tom Horn's book, is an expose about the return of the Nephilim (offspring of the fallen angels that mingled with the DNA of the women of Noah's day) and the mystical Mayan calendar that ended in 2012 plus many other calendars and writings of both secular and religious personages that believed in the 2012 date for ending and restarting world history with an apocalyptic event. He cites many sources for a 3 1/2 year period culminating in 2016 (2012-2016). In addition, he devotes much space to the Great Seal of the United States being tied to the occult, specifically Freemasonry. In other words he believes the Satanic New World Order headed by the Antichrist will emerge from the United States for the founding fathers as he portrays them, setup the Capitol buildings in Washington, D.C. to reflect the cult signature, even to invite Lucifer's (Satan's blessings). As a result, the United States has been under demonic influence since its inception.  Whether or not he is right, one that is certain and that is, demons are clearly alive and active in the government of the United States.

The first articles on Gog and Magog will be posted soon so hope you enjoy the study.  In preparation for the series, notice in Revelation 20:7 where it says when the thousand years have expired, "Satan shall be loosed out of his prison and shall go out to deceive the nations, which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is the sand of the sea."

This is after the 1000-year reign of Christ Jesus on the earth and after the days of the tribulation and immediately before the Eternal Age (8th Age). As difficult as it seems, the nations that comprise Gog and Magog at that time, will form and exist to oppose the Lord Jesus during His Kingdom reign.  Gog and Magog in this passage represent the nations scattered throughout the earth that reject the Lord's reign over them and adhere to Satan's lies and deception one last time before the Lord rains down fire upon them and wipes them off the face of the earth and cast Satan into the Lake of Fire where the Antichrist and False Prophet have been for 1000 years. This is the last time Satan will ever be heard of in the history of heaven and earth. 

Revelation 20 cast great insight into Ezekiel 38 and 39 into identifying Gog and and Magog. Some things are certain, Gog is not the chief prince of Russia and Magog is not the nation of Russia. Gog is also not the Antichrist or Satan however Satan may have a part to play in both. Even though I have read countless books on Gog and Magog, I will endeavor to identify as the Holy Spirit provides the insight, who and what is this mysterious biblical personage and kingdom.
