Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Thinking About the Last Days

Posted by Job on August 10, 2007

by Ronald L. Dart  of Borntowin.net 

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come (2 Timothy 3:1).

      Predicting what’s going to happen next in the Middle East is a fool’s game. Or, maybe it’s a prophet’s task. Since I’m not a prophet, and I’m trying not to be a fool, all that’s left is to look at what’s going on in the Middle East in the light of the Bible. Christian people pay close attention to what happens in the Middle East for good reason. It’s because of something Jesus said in response to a question by his disciples. Country boys that they were, the disciples were exclaiming over the beauty of the Temple when Jesus shocked them into silence. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down,” and then he walked on to the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:2 NIV).1

       This actually came to pass a few decades later when the Romans sacked Jerusalem, burned the Temple, and killed Jews in their thousands. They say that in the years following you could actually walk by that site and not realize that anything had ever been there. But there’s one curious thing about all that. It happened in 70 A.D. to be sure, but it had also happened some 650 years before that, when the Babylonians came, sacked Jerusalem, and destroyed Solomon’s Temple. The Temple that the disciples were admiring in Jerusalem on that day was not Solomon’s Temple, but a second Temple built after the return from Babylon.

      You’ve heard the old saying that history repeats itself. It does. History repeats itself, because human nature does not change, and men keep doing the same stupid things over and over. And if that were not enough, the nature of God doesn’t change either. As he said to the prophet Malachi, “For I am Jehovah, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6).2

      To some degree, this little comparison between human nature and the divine nature accounts for a lot of the repetitive nature of prophecy. If an event happened because of a given condition, and the condition recurs, it will happen again—perhaps with new technology. While I was pondering this one day, I came upon a Scripture that almost spells it out. God was challenging Israel because of their constant chasing around after one god and then another. Through the prophet Isaiah, God said this, “Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.”3   If you’re going to understand the future, said God, look at history Only then may you understand the end of it all. The things that are to come are reflections of things that have already happened. The terminology adopted by Bible students for this sort of thing is “type” and “antitype.”  The word type comes from the Greek and means a model, a shape, or a form. Antitype refers to the later reality of which the first was only a type. So we have types and antitypes all through the Bible. It is, however, a mistake to assume that you have only type and antitype, two occurrences. You may have many more.

      So, the things to come are reflections of things that have already happened. If you are a prophet, your prophecy has to have roots in history or it is meaningless. This is one of the most helpful things to know when you encounter a would-be prophet. He might be a person who comes to your church and says, “I have a word of prophecy from the Lord.” Does the prophecy have roots in history? If not, you can safely brush it aside.

      Now consider Jesus’ disciples oohing and aahing over the grandeur of Herod’s Temple and compare it to something Jeremiah said in one of his prophecies. God customarily sent Jeremiah down to the city gates, where people came to conduct business and try cases. The Lord told Jeremiah: “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of Jehovah, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words, saying, “The Temple of the LORD, The Temple of the LORD, The Temple of the LORD, are these” (Jeremiah 7:3-4).

       I can almost see Jeremiah standing there repeating this, sweeping his arm first to the west, then to the east, then to the south, exclaiming at all the magnificent buildings—each with “this is the Temple of the Lord.” I can hear Jesus’ disciples exclaiming the same words in awe of the Temple and all that it stood for as they showed the buildings of the Temple to Jesus.

      Jeremiah said there must be no half baked amends. It is time for the real thing. Standing on the courthouse steps he called for honest judgment between a man and his neighbor, for an end to the oppression of widows, orphans and strangers. He called for an end to guilty verdicts on innocent men. Moreover, he called for them to cease and desist from following the practices of other gods, practices which were destroying the nation, and had even penetrated the Temple environs. Do these things, God said, and I will allow you to dwell in this place for ever.

      But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless. Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”—safe to do all these detestable things? Has this house, which bears my Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the LORD (Jeremiah 7:8-11 NIV).

      His words echo down through time to the day when Jesus ran the money changers out of the Temple. Matthew tells us that Jesus overthrew the tables of the money changers and said: “It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves” (Matthew 21:13).

      Jeremiah, having warned the people that there was no safety in proximity to the Temple, offered this admonition from Jehovah: “But go first. Only then may you understand the end of it all. The things that are to come are reflections of things that have already happened. The terminology adopted by Bible students for this sort of thing is “type” and “antitype.”  The word type comes from the Greek and means a model, a shape, or a form. Antitype refers to the later reality of which the first was only a type. So we have types and antitypes all through the Bible. It is, however, a mistake to assume that you have only type and antitype, two occurrences. You may have many more.

      So, the things to come are reflections of things that have already happened. If you are a prophet, your prophecy has to have roots in history or it is meaningless. This is one of the most helpful things to know when you encounter a would-be prophet. He might be a person who comes to your church and says, “I have a word of prophecy from the Lord.” Does the prophecy have roots in history? If not, you can safely brush it aside.

      Jeremiah, having warned the people that there was no safety in proximity to the Temple, offered this admonition from Jehovah: “But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel” (Jeremiah 7:12).

       Go to Shiloh. Okay, but what is to be learned at Shiloh? Years ago, my wife and I were driving north from Jerusalem to find a place called Jacob’s well. As we drove along, I noticed a small sign pointing to the right to a place called Shiloh. I couldn’t recall the context, but the words of Jeremiah, “Go to Shiloh,”  were in my ears. I was familiar with the phrase, because I kept coming across it in a class I taught in college. So, when I saw that sign and remembered the words, “Go to Shiloh,” I said we’d better do it. I slammed on the brakes and took a right turn without thinking. We bounced over a rather poor road for a little while and then came to the end of the road. I stopped. I got out. I looked around and I saw, well, nothing. Absolutely nothing.

      It turns out, that was the point. I recalled the history of the place, but it was only when I got back to where we were staying and read the context of Jeremiah’s prophecy, that I really understood what Jeremiah was driving at: “And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the LORD, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not; Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh. And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim” (Jeremiah 7:13-15).

      That had happened. Ephraim had long since gone into captivity into Assyria, and because Judah didn’t listen, the same thing would happen to them. So, there I stood on a bald patch of ground that once was Shiloh and there was nothing there. Off in the distance, there was a small very old mosque and sometimes I wonder if even that was symbolic.

      So now we know the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. was not the second shrine of God that had been destroyed. It was the third. Now, I’ve not been appointed a prophet of God and I’m not stupid enough to appoint myself, but I have a sinking feeling that what has happened three times, will happen again. Why? Because we’re still here, and we’re still making the same mistakes.

      Returning to the occasion when Jesus warned his disciples that the Temple would once again be destroyed: When the disciples had recovered sufficiently to ask some questions, they had a big one. “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3).

      The disciples plainly understood Jesus to be talking about the end of the age, not merely another sacking of Jerusalem. That happened again in 70 A.D., but it was not the end. They understood all this because they knew what the prophets said. They knew that there would be a destruction that would come in the last days. What they now wanted to know was when it was going to happen. What Jesus said in reply to this question is called the “Olivet Prophecy” because of where it was given—on the Mount of Olives.

      The remainder of chapter 24 and all of chapter 25 answer the disciples’ questions. Part of it may be familiar to you. He said, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. I took the time to look through a number of translations because there is sometimes a misunderstanding of this. People think it means, “People will come in my name admitting that I am the Messiah and will deceive many.” I don’t think so. I gather he is saying, “Many will come saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.’ Thus, there will be false messiahs. You will hear of “wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:6-8).

      As a boy growing up during World War II, I recall someone saying that wars and rumors of wars were a sign of the time of the end. I think there were a lot of people during World War II who thought we were nearing the end. What I didn’t hear from any of them was what Jesus actually said: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

      So wars and rumors of wars are not a sign that the end is here. The signs that Jesus spoke of have been coming from that time until this. These things, said Jesus, are only the beginning. That sounds a little creepy in the present world situation, as you look around and think that maybe what we are seeing today is only the beginning, that the worst is yet to come. Jesus went on:  “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another” (Matthew 24:9-10). I suppose it happened, and I suppose it will happen again because Jesus said it would. I also suppose it because I know human nature, but it’s distressing nonetheless.

      Jesus was talking to his disciples at this point, but it has an eerie echo of the days of Jeremiah. In those days, Judah was hated of all nations. But the words may have more than one meaning. Look at where the Jews sit in the world. They are hated of all nations. It is sobering to think about it when you look at Jewish history. What have they done to be hated as they are? How is it that we have anti-Semitism so rabid in the world, yet it seems the Islamists who are murdering men, women, and children, are not hated of all nations? People make excuses for them. People try their dead-level best to keep from condemning them for what they have done. They condemn Israel instead. They don’t condemn the Arabs; they don’t condemn Islamists. You see this double standard everywhere from the United Nations to the Arab press, from Western television to Al Jazeera, and all the way to Reuters. They all blame the Jews, not the people that hate them.

      Why do they hate the Jews? People offer all kinds of reasons for their hatred, but I think the real reason is that they are a people chosen by God. They are, for better or worse, his covenant people. And, pursuant to his promises, they have survived. They have been punished, but they have survived. They have been destroyed, but they have survived. The whole world is guilty of anti-Semitism. It is there for any objective person to see. Efforts to stamp out Jews have gone on throughout history—one of the most recent is called the Holocaust—and the Jews have survived. For now.

      Jesus went on to say: “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” (v. 12). He seems to have been talking about people who really did love God, but because they lived in an environment of so much iniquity, even those who loved God grew cold. Jesus continued, “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” You can’t stand firm part of the way and be saved, you have to stay with it all the way to the end. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” 

      There seem to be markers along the way, and preaching the Gospel to all nations is one of them. Another is a specific warning to those in Judea to get out of Jerusalem: “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes” (vv. 15-18).

       The reference to Daniel here is of more than passing interest. In the second century B.C., there was a man named Antiochus Epiphanies who ruled Palestine from Syria. A major part of his policy was the Hellenization of the area under his rule, which entailed the vigorous suppression of Judaism. He set up an altar of Zeus in the Holy Place of the Temple, which Daniel saw as the “abomination of desolation.” Antiochus had fancied himself to be a god who greatly resembled Zeus Olympus. Zeus was known as Baal-Shanim, that is, lord of heaven. The Hebrews didn’t want to write or pronounce the pagan term, Baal, so they substituted “abomination,” and “shaman,” as a typical play on words. It was written “desolating one.” Thus Zeus, lord of heaven, is loosely referred to as “abominations, one who makes desolate.”4

      Something like this happened again and again in Jerusalem. Even Caligula tried to erect his own statue in the Temple about 40 AD, and then Josephus applied the appellation to the destruction of the Temple by Titus in 70 AD.

      Anyone hearing Jesus use the term, though, would have applied it solely to Antiochus. But for some reason Matthew adds this little phrase “Let the reader understand,” as though the obvious meaning was not necessarily the intended meaning. We’ll have to wait to see what that might mean, but Jesus goes on to say this: “And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be”  (vv. 19-21).

      When I read this, the thought came to mind, unbidden, that one of the truly disturbing things about war is the destruction of innocent life. Normally you would like to think that women and children would be spared, but because they are weak, and because they could quickly become a burden, pregnant women, infants, and sucklings, are dealt with very harshly. The Germans killed them outright when they were exporting the Jews in boxcars to Buchenwald, to Dachau, to Auschwitz. The mind boggles at things that were done, but it has always been so; it always will be.

      But what I have seen in more recent times in the Middle East may have served to clarify a passage from the Old Testament that disturbs a lot of people. The story arises from an incident in the reign of Israel’s first king. Samuel came to King Saul with a message from God: “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass” (1 Samuel 15:2-3).

      The first thing to know about this incident is that, when Israel first came up against Amalek, the Amalekites ambushed the rear of the Israelite column, which is where the women, the children, and the animals would have been. Men normally fought from the front; they protected their women and children who were behind. And the expectation is that real men would have met them head on and they could have fought. It would seem that there were rules of engagement in those days that called for sparing women and children, because what the Amalekites did was reprehensible and incurred the lasting vengeance of God himself.

      There were people, in those times, who lived by these rules and people who did not. And here is the key: if you were fighting a people who cared nothing for life, you would lose if you fought by humanitarian rules, for they fought from behind women and children.

      One of the most stunning examples of that I have ever seen occurred in the Iraqi war when General Tommy Frank’s boys were fighting their way through Iraq toward Bagdad. They were ready to cross a bridge and, what should they encounter, but men fighting behind a line of women and children ranged across the bridge. The Iraqis, army or irregulars, were using human shields. Something like this occurred in the more recent war between the Israelis and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

      I thought about all this when I considered the command to King Saul. The Israelite army would be coming up against the Amalekites who would have had their women and children up front. The Israelites would have hesitated, as the Americans and the Israelis did. And they would have lost again to the Amalekites.

      Saul’s men were told they would have to fight through that, and that included women and children. Now, with the Hezbollah fighters not caring who they kill, and actually fighting from behind women and children, the Israelis encounter a situation not that different from when Saul went after the Amalekites.

      Thinking about Jesus’ words in the Olivet prophecy, it is very clear that he is talking about the time of his return. It seems very clear to me that the prophets are showing us that, as we come down to the last days, there will be yet another holocaust. Only after that will a lasting peace be achieved.

Did God Tell George Bush To Invade Iraq?

Posted by Job on July 23, 2007

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/19/AR2007071901957.html?hpid=opinionsbox1 reminds me of http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/13/AR2005101301688.html. This is one of the SHOCKINGLY FEW mainstream media stories about this, though I would hazard a guess that pretty much everyone has heard about it. Now the fact that no real sport has been made of this in the media shows which side the media is on. Were they to deal with it in any serious way, it would provoke a real theological debate, and that would have forced the leaders of the religious right to take a stand on whether Bush ever received a direct revelation from God on Iraq or any other issue. The result of such a debate would have been the obvious: there is NO WAY that Bush EVER received such a revelation from God (more on that later). But by placing it out there in a manner where everyone would find out about it but so serious examination of it would take place serves the purpose of the anti – Christ media: to make Bible – believing Christians look like fools, fascists, or some combination thereof. And it has worked, see this link: Because Of George Bush, The World Regards Christianity As Evil!

And this better than anything else exposes the utter corruption of the Christian leaders in America, especially those on the religious right. If they were on the Lord’s side, out of a desire not so much to defend the reputation of the church on earth but THE NAME OF OUR GOD IN HEAVEN, they should have openly challenged Bush on this blasphemy. But since no righteous man or woman of God performed the role of a prophet, it shows the apostasy of our churches just as does this article: Do You Go To Church? If So, Why?! (Pay special attention to the fact that only 3% of Christians truly care whether their kids go to heaven or hell according to this survey as compared to 39% wanting their kids to get into a good college.) What demonstrates the apostasy even more so is that the MEMBERS of their churches did not DEMAND that their pastors oppose Bush’s speaking against our Lord.

How can I be so sure that God did not tell Bush to invade Iraq and Afghanistan? It is a simple Bible test, really. (Test Your Bible Knowledge With The Prophecy Quiz! and
The Requirements For The Office Of A Prophet are the types of things that would point you in the right direction.) Some simple ones: prophecy only goes to Israelites (meaning people that are saved). Bush = member of Skulls and Crossbones, pro – abortion and pro – homosexual: see Why Christians Should Not Support George W. Bush, and believes that Muslims worship the same God as Christians do (which is, er, quite a surprise to the Muslims). Add to that Why President George W. Bush Honestly is Not a Christian and it is pretty clear. Incidentally, none of the things in any of those links are secret. They were known to our clergy before he was elected to office, and by the time this “revelation” allegedly came to him, it was obvious that he had not changed! So strike one.

Strike two: things of this nature are only true if established in the mouth of two or more witnesses. Well, was there any evidence of any other Christian hearing a word from the Lord that we should strike Iraq and Afghanistan? If there were, I didn’t hear of it!

And strike three: all revelation must be consistent with prior revelation. For Christians, our completed, inspired, inerrant, literally true, and final authority in all matters – including revelation – is the Bible. It is what by which we can try all spirits by the Holy Spirit, and call anything and everything that does not measure up to be accursed. Now I am not one of those who believes that the Righteous One who shall one day return to make war and overcome the armies of Gog and Magog and those who follow Him are called to be pacifists: see CHRISTIANS ARE NOT TO BE PACIFISTS!!! please. But just show me one place in the Bible where God told Christians to start wars of aggression against a nation that did not attack us and was not imminently planning on attacking us (and had no real capability of executing any plan that they did have) but JUST HAPPENED to be MIGHTY CONVENIENT to various domestic and international economic and political aims of his. (Puppet regime? Check. Oil companies? Check. Halliburton? Check. Defense contractors? Check. Re – election? Check. Increased Christian persecution in Iraq and across the Middle East? Check. (And check here too.) Increasing the amount of carnage, disorder, racial and religious tension, fear, and economic/political instability in the world, which in turn makes us more likely to submit to international leadership for “solutions”? Check. Giving illegal immigrants an easy path to citizenship by allowing them to fill Army quotas? Check. Increasing our national debt to China and similar? Check. Sending so many of our best and brightest workers overseas through the “backdoor draft” so we can claim a “labor shortage” that we need to replace with immigrant workers? Check. And boy, those National Guardsmen and equipment sure would have come in handy after Hurricane Katrina, and to fight all of these wildfires, but oh well … check.) I have not seen it in the Bible. Nor have I seen anything in the Bible where Christians have this manifest destiny to go about imposing Christianity, “democracy”, or anything else on a sovereign nation. Have you?

Did God command His people to fight wars in the Bible? Sure. In the OLD TESTAMENT to ISRAEL. But that was in the interests of creating a nation out of Abraham – and defending said nation – that God would use to bring Jesus Christ into the world. After that was done, there was no need to go about putting men, women, and children to death with the sword (or with carpet – bombing campaigns). Of course, a nation has a right to defend itself, and the case can be made that we have an obligation to rise up and stop grotesque human rights abuses (although our next detachment of troops to Sudan to stop the genocide against Christians there will be the first). But it is safe to say that the large scale (or small scale) slaughter of innocents so that occult groups like the Skulls and Bones can exert its political and corporate dominance over the globe is fundamentally incompatible with Biblical revelation, correct?

Now say George Bush had sold all that he had and given it to the poor as Jesus Christ told the wealthy young ruler. Or had he used these “Radio Free Wherever” government radio propaganda broadcasts to pump Christian evangelistic messages across the globe fulfill the Christian mandate to take the gospel to every nation. Or had he proposed a massive wealth transfer program to the poor, or to imposed strict environmental regulations on big business based on Bible verses and doctrines. Now I would not necessarily advocate Bush going and doing those things because they may be taking Bible doctrines out of their appropriate contexts. But in those instances had Bush said that God told him to do these things, we would at least have to consider the POSSIBILITY that God MAY have told him to do so because the claimed revelation would have at least some scriptural basis. But a revelation that IS OBVIOUSLY COMPLETELY OPPOSITE TO EVERYTHING THAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND STANDS FOR? That should have made at least SOME CHRISTIANS suspicious.

Well, either we Christians bought into the obvious lie, or we knew it was a lie and failed to speak up and demand that others do the same. Which is it? Either way, it is enough to make you wonder if God is going to hold us to account for our silence on Judgment Day, right alongside those who support or refuse to appose abortion. If you do not feel that such is the case, or if you disagree with anything else that I have proposed, now is the time to make your dissent known and tell me where I am wrong!

Anti – Christ Plot Of State Taking Over Church Is Progressing Quite Nicely

Posted by Job on May 14, 2007

See this link: nytimes.com/2007/05/13/business/13lobby.html Let us all give Reagan, Bush, and Bill Clinton too a great big hand. Oh yes, and please take note of how the Catholic – led religious right is going to use Mitt Romney to kick the anti – Christ plot up to the next level. healtheland.wordpress.com/2007/05/12/why-so-many-prominent-catholics-are-supporting-romney/ Bob Novak does SUCH A GREAT JOB RUNNING INTERFERENCE here http://healtheland.wordpress.com/2007/05/13/bob-novak-joins-catholic-chorus-lying-for-romney/ Again, looks like the only GOPer who is going to stand against this anti – Christ plot is Ron Paul (http://www.ronpaul2008.com/). I used to loathe libertarians, but when you consider the alternative …

Correlating Don Imus, Christians, Blacks, Women, And The Rapture

Posted by Job on April 13, 2007

In the past I have declared that while I do believe in the rapture, I could not decide between the pre – tribulationist, mid – tribulationist, or post – tribulationist camp, and decided that it really doesn’t matter. At the suggestion of Independent Conservative, I read Matthew 24, and am now 100% in the POST – TRIBULATION rapture camp (and have a lot more tolerance for the rapture – deniers), and have decided that it DOES MATTER. Why? BECAUSE WHEN THE GREAT TRIBULATION COMES, WE WILL STILL BE HERE. “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:), Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:, Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” That is Matthew 24:15-22, and those warnings apply to US when we will have to HEAD FOR THE HILLS (to the place of refuge) AFTER THE BEAST (the anti - Christ) defiles the soon – to – be reconstructed third temple! And that is why it is important. Those scriptures refer to US! Now, the pre – tribulationists deal with this scripture by claiming that it referred to the destruction of the second temple and the end of the Jewish dispensation in 70 AD, when millions of Jews who refused to abandon Jerusalem fell to the Romans (non – Messianic Jews after the Simcha Jacobovici strand claim that Jesus Christ’s “true radical Pharisee teachings perished” with His followers, a ridiculous claim easily disproved by the historical fact that though some of Yeshua HaMashiach’s followers did die defending Rome, others had previously left Jerusalem and Israel to spread the gospel). Even if that is true, it is merely a prophetic type, a foreshadowing of the real event during the REAL tribulation, just as the first destruction of the temple and scattering of the Jewish people was a foreshadowing of 70 AD. And why is it important? Because if we don’t KNOW that we are going to STILL BE AROUND for the great tribulation, WE WON’T BE PREPARING FOR IT! We won’t heed Yeshua HaMashiach’s Words and head for the place of refuge when the beast defiles the second temple! (The best current theory is that the place of refuge will be Bozrah). Those who are currently being misled by the pre – tribulationists (Tim LaHaye, Left Behind, John Hagee Christian Zionists, and pretty much the vast majority of the fundamentalists and evangelicals) and the mid – tribulationists will have to endure the second half of the tribulation. WE WILL ALL HAVE TO ENDURE THE FIRST HALF, AND ONLY A FEW WILL MISS THE SECOND.

What does this have to do with Don Imus? Well, it appears that all of these Christians that contributed to and are so gleefully cheering the demise of his radio show are not considering that the SUDDEN CRACKDOWN ON CERTAIN BIGOTS NOW WHEN THERE HAVE BEEN BIGOTS ON THE AIRWAVES AND IN THE PRESS FOR DECADES is serving a larger agenda. Which is? Setting the stage for true Christianity to be illegal. Denying us education and employment. Making it a crime to preach the gospel. And so forth. Now, all of this is going to happen anyway, of course. BUT SHOULD WE CHRISTIANS BE TRYING TO HELP IT ALONG? I suppose the “John Hagee Christian Zionist push the US into attacking Iran so Jesus Christ will come back” crowd would say so. (Of course, if they weren’t PRETRIBULATIONISTS they would PROBABLY SEE THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY, WOULDN’T THEY? Everyone wants the rapture to hurry up and come NOW, but tell them that they will have to go through tribulation first, and the vast majority will quickly change to RAPTURE HURRY UP AND WAIT.)  Now do not get me wrong, evil is evil. Imus’ little act was evil, and Christians were right to oppose it. But shouldn’t there be a way to do this without furthering the agenda of the anti – Christ?

So, Christians who are jumping up and down cheering at how Don Imus’ bloody scalp is now pinned to the wall of the speech code mob (I mean come on, if it was really about respecting black women, wouldn’t they have gone after RAPPERS by now? even WHITE ones, like Eminem? And Quentin Tarantino is not a rapper, but where is the mob over HIS racist work?) please try to understand rather than accusing me of being insensitive to blacks and women and their emotions over the evil words of one Don Imus. Instead, let me see if I can explain this in the “multiculturalism diversity tolerance” language that I learned all those times that I was sent to human resources for “training seminars” every time that I offended someone at work. The anti – Christ will persecute Christians during the great tribulation. Black people are disproportionately Christian. Women are disproportionately Christian. Black women are disproportionately Christian. So, the anti – Christ’s persecution of the church will have a disparate negative impact against blacks, women, and ESPECIALLY black women like Rutgers basketball coach Vivian Stringer, a Christian. Therefore, the anti - Christ’s persecution of the church will be RACIST and SEXIST. So please, Christians of all sexes and races, do not contribute to the anti – Christ’s racism and sexism (or anything else for that matter). As Christians we must zealously oppose all sin with the gospel, but when it comes to sin (Imus’ remarks) versus sin (the political correctness agenda) either oppose them both without being used by either, or just sit on the sidelines and let God take care of it.

Surprise, Surprise, Europe Supports A Muslim Kosovo State Against The Wishes Of Christian Serbia

Posted by Job on April 6, 2007

See link here. They will change their minds when all of the Muslims that they have let into their countries with open immigration plans to replace the depopulation of those nations thanks to liberal attitudes towards abortion, homosexuality, and family all start using Kosovo as a base for jihad. Of course, by then it will be too late. If this isn’t the EU’s trying to kill off Christianity in Europe and winding up shooting itself in the foot, I do not know what is. And guess what … Russia will be REALLY HAPPY to see a Muslim state SO CLOSE TO CHECHNYA, where they are dealing with their own Al Qaeda jihad. I wonder what George W. Bush, reputed Methodist Christian, is doing to protect perhaps the last Christian state in Europe. When you consider that Bill Clinton, reputed Southern Baptist and Council on Foreign Relations member with George W. Bush’s father, was the one who attacked Serbia to pave the way for this to begin with, you pretty much have your answer, along with Bush’s refusal to do a thing to help Christians in Iraq, China, Sudan, or pretty much anywhere else. What about Somalia you say? There’s, er, oil nearby. And once again, the media is totally asleep on yet another assault on Christianity. Face it folks, the world will never be happy until all Christians have either renounced the faith or been slaughtered, and they do not care which. How do I know that it is true? Cause the Bible said so (and said so here too)!

China Has America’s Number, And Neither Political Party Is Doing Anything About It

Posted by Job on March 22, 2007

See link here. Yes, the source, the John Birch Society, is regrettable, but it was THEIR PRESENTATION on C – SPAN that years ago told me about how the Republicans, Democrats, and the media were all dancing to the beat of the Council on Foreign Relations. It is interesting how all of these “religious right” leaders have been absolutely nowhere in pushing Bush to take a hard line against China. Quite the contrary, the major religious broadcasters like TBN (Paul and Jan Crouch and family) and CBN (Pat Robertson) have lined up to sign broadcasting deals with the Chinese government, and are always very complimentary! Pat Robertson even claimed in a letter that God was dealing with the Chinese before He dealt with the Jews! It is all about the money, and it is all about placing global control of money, politics, economics, and religion under one entity; the beast (or the anti – Christ). So if China using the technology that we sell them (or allowed them to steal with no resistance) to send our society back to the stone ages by knocking out our satellites gets America to consent to global government, well then you have to break eggs to make omelettes don’t you? You had best get yourself a close and personal relationship with Yeshua HaMashiach to make sure that even if your earthly eggs are broken, the real you, your spirit, will be forever with God!

The Emerging Church? Stay Away!

Posted by Job on March 17, 2007

Here is one of their manifestos. If you are looking to find any actual BELIEFS in here, then keep looking. As a matter of fact, it is quite proud of the fact that there are no “doctrinal statements” and that one is not required to actually BELIEVE IN ANYTHING to be included. There are no qualifications whatsoever except a willingness to call yourself a Christian of some sort (or just be willing to “commune with them and work towards their goals, whatever they are”). There is even no definiton of “Christian.” They mention being like Jesus and emulating Jesus and the teachings of Jesus and of pleasing God, but no mention of who or what Jesus or God are or why they should be served. Of course, which means no mention of sin or judgment of sin. They mention God’s Word … what is God’s Word? What does it mean? They mention faith … faith in WHAT exactly? So, as you see, participation in the “emerging church” requires absolutely no qualifications at all. But there IS a disqualification. You know what it is? Well, believing in and keeping the Bible. That is, being an actual Christian. It is not so much that if you are an actual Christian you will want to have nothing to do with the emerging church (though it is certainly true) but rather the “emerging church” will not want to have anything to do with you. Make no mistake, this is nothing more than an attempt to change Christianity from being not only a religion (which I am no fan of) - let alone a relationship with God through Yeshua HaMashiach but even a RELIGION – to being a mere political philosophy through which man can please and worship himself. Spirit of anti – Christ, anyone? I strongly urge you, people, those who possess a form of godliness but deny the power thereof, from such turn away!

Will The Anti – Christ Be Homosexual?

Posted by Job on March 6, 2007

Daniel 11:37 - Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. What does that verse mean, precisely, especially the fascinating “nor the desire of women” part of it? Some people take it to mean that the anti – Christ, or more accurately the beast, will be homosexual. Of course, this interpretation is almost certainly false, a conclusion motivated by hatred of homosexuals (rather than the true biblical stance of loving the sinner while hating the sin). This is another example of the same type of nonsense that many on the Christian right engage in when they do things like claim that the anti – Christ will be a leader of the UN or EU or represent whatever group that they oppose for worldly reasons. I am absolutely certain that at one time some of these people were convinced that the anti – Christ would be a civil rights leader, for instance. (This should not be interpreted as a defense of the Christian LEFT, by the way, most of whom do not believe in the anti – Christ or anything else in the Bible for that matter.) That is one of the biggest problems with the church giving itself over to worldliness; it causes ever so much false doctrine because it causes people to interpret the Bible through their own temporal passions than by the true revealer of all knowledge, the eternal Ruach Hakadosh. So, I am absolutely certain that right after the Massachussetts Supreme Court committed their little judicial activism adventure, a bunch of preachers were so provoked into rage by the fact that (gasp!) sinners SIN and support others in their sins that they began to interpret Daniel 11:37 through their flesh and not by the Holy Spirit. Look, the Bible has never had any problem calling homosexuality plainly what it is, and even where it is “indirectly described” (i.e. in Paul’s letters), it leaves nothing to the imagination regarding the type of conduct that it is describing. So, if the beast was going to be homosexual, Daniel 11:37 would have come right out and said it. Further, even if the beast IS going to be homosexual, whoop tee doo! So what? The beast is THE MAN OF SIN, and homosexuality would just be one more. All sins are equal because all sin makes man worthy of the second death and therefore in need of the Saviour’s death to serve as substitutionary redemption. While homosexuality is clearly a PERVERSION, in terms of sin itself, the only ones that God pays special attention to are 1) murdering the innocent, 2) oppressing the poor, and 3) blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (which can be done any number of ways, including being a false teacher). So, I would be willing to propose the notion that in addition to killing a lot of innocent people, oppressing many poor people with his brutal economic system, and blaspheming with his false religious system, the man of sin is also going to be a mighty big gossip! Yes, that is right, gossip is a sin! But you aren’t going to see that many preachers going around saying that you will know the anti – Christ because he is going to be this big gossip, because that would offend all of the gossipmongers in their congregations! And you aren’t going to hear the “religious right” sort talking about how the anti – Christ is going to oppress the poor, because so many of them support or get behind political candidates that support very harsh economic, social, and criminal justice policies against the poor and would rather see $100 billion given away to our big corporations in tax breaks and subsidies that “create jobs” than $1 million “wasted on ‘nation building’ in the ‘Third World’” (as if the term “Third World” or anything like it exists in the Bible). And you also aren’t going to hear them say that the anti – Christ will come as a Jesus Only Oneness Pentecostal Word of Faith predestination “you can’t lose your salvation and you aren’t saved unless you speak in tongues” teacher, either, because even though they KNOW that those doctrines aren’t biblical, they, er, go to conferences and stuff with guys like that and bring in a lot of money. Except, of course, if they’re Catholic. Oh, they have NO PROBLEM entertaining “the anti – Christ will be the pope” notions, because WE ALL KNOW that the Catholic deviations from the Bible are FAR WORSE than our own, right?

Instead of reading that fragment in Daniel 11 out of context because of the worldly cultural notions of today, let us consider it in this fashion: that the beast will be SO DEPRAVED IN HIS EVIL THAT HE WILL NOT EVEN DESIRE WOMEN! Why? Because his desire to please himself through power will be so strong that it will DESTROY HIS NATURAL AFFECTION! Now again, none of this Catholic bashing about the celibate priesthood fulfilling Daniel 11:7. Catholic Priests have desire for women but ABSTAIN FROM FULFILLING IT as a sacrifice to God. (Of course, anyone who has read the Bible for five minutes knows that it is a sacrifice that God never asked for and does not want, but facts are facts.) But this fellow’s evil will be so great that his natural desire for women is nonexistent.

And as such, instead of reading into Daniel 11:37 something that is not there because of your frustration with the current political situation and the success of the “gay rights movement”, consider something that IS there instead: an affirmation of the natural desire between a man and a woman that is meant to be fulfilled in the holy union of man and wife. In the Garden of Eden, God said that it was not good for man to be alone, and therefore He made woman in the image of God as man’s equal to be his companion. And inherent in man was a very strong, and very natural, desire for the companionship of matrimony. It was man that took what was created to be the pure and holy product of God’s love given freely to man and turned it into something painful, hurtful, and dirty. It first happened in the Garden of Eden, when after the fall of man Adam became so depraved through sin that he tried to blame Eve (and God also) for his actions. We later saw it when man created the institutions of polygamy, sex chattel slavery, and prostitution, and then went even further into homosexuality and bestiality. And then came along religion, which has filled so many men and women with such fear and loathing of their bodies and of sex that even men and women who have been married for years have problems in that area that in many cases lead to adultery and divorce. Wow, Mr. Preacher, it is far easier for you to get up on your pulpit on Sunday or on your radio and TV show and claim that the anti – Christ will be a homosexual Catholic pope than it is for you to talk about the sexual problems that the married people in your own congregation are having, isn’t it? You don’t have the guts to stand up and say that a lot of the married members of your congregation, including the people in high administrative offices and the ones who give a lot of money to the church, need to come to you for counseling and spiritual deliverance on the problems that they are having in their marriage, and to warn them about any generational and inheritance demon issues that might also afflict their children and harm THEIR marriages by keeping THEM from developing healthy mutually enjoyable and beneficial sex lives with their spouses? Or, Mr. Preacher, is your church one of the ones where Internet pornography has been the best thing to come along in a long time, and the fantasy life that it has trapped many of your congregants in gives them yet another way to keep them from dealing with the problem? Why do so many of your congregants have computers (and TVs with DVD players and TiVos) IN THEIR BEDROOMS to begin with, Mr. Pastor? And by the way, Mr. Pastor, why do YOU have them in YOURS?

Well, no one is willing to get up in front of their congregations and talk about things like that. Is it because they lack guts? No. It is because they lack a love for God and for God’s people, and because of that they take the easy road, the easy way out, to go through the wide gate. Which is why they point the finger at homosexuals and at Catholics. It is easier to preach on Daniel 11:37 THAT way than it is to have all the men in your congregation stand up and ask them A) how many of you still desire your wives, B) how many of you ONLY desire your wives, C) of those who fail B) how to deal with that lust that is in your heart and D) of those of you that fail A) how you can RESTORE YOUR NATURAL AFFECTION THAT PLEASES GOD and E) those of who actually pass A) and B)  – which will be few – how to fulfill that desire WHILE FULFILLING THAT OF YOUR WIFE TOO!

All right you religious right political megachurch preachers who like to get up and “prophesy”, tell me when is the next time you are going to give a sermon like THAT.

The New York Times Says Religion Is Great So Long As It Does Not Involve God

Posted by Job on March 4, 2007

See link (which is extremely long!) here. Why adhere to such a curious position? Well, of course believing in God is a nonstarter, because if there is a God then He will want to do things like tell you what to do, and will be so serious about it as to leave behind a BIBLE containing in it things that you can do and can’t do. Oh yes, and this God will also punish you for not doing those things, and that punishment will also be described in that same BIBLE. So why not just promote atheism? Well, I want to say that it is because they want to remain relevant and influential in a culture where they themselves admit that 92% of people believe in a God that has personal characteristics and even most of the remaining 8% believe in a God of SOME sort, and that is no doubt part of it. But the main reason that they are not willing to advocate that religion be declared a danger and be discarded as a result (as is Richard Dawkins, whom they mention in the column while not mentioning his antipathy for religion in general and Christianity in particular, or that his motivations seem to strangely revolve around being upset that Christianity tells him who – or what – he can or cannot have sexual relations with) is that they find religion useful. Martin Luther King Day et al, remember? Religion is a powerful tool, the most powerful in fact, for advancing their soical and political goals. The takeover of America and of many Latin American nations, for instance, would have been impossible to accomplish so quickly without an active “Christian left” willing to be used to speak the language of faith in order to attain social and political goals (goals that I might add that are almost always in opposition to God, and the tactics used to achieve those goals being in opposition to Him as well). So their desire is for people to keep their religious practices and observances and be as devoted and passionate to them as you choose, but leave this “God stuff” out of it. Which, of course, is – as I stated earlier – precisely what the beast, or the anti – Christ, has used in the past and will use again. So does that leave any doubt as to which side the New York Times is on? (Now of course I am not engaging in the favorite right wing pasttime of bashing the New York Times; I am just using them for the same reason why anyone would shoot fish in a barrel … it is easy and fun.) So then the question that is left is: which side are YOU on? If you are on the wrong one, use this link to get on the right one!
