God's Word ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  Names of God   ~  Chronologies

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything!" (James 1:2-4)

Jesus said: "I AM the Way the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

 

Faith in God!  National Prayer [more on May 5]: "Dear heavenly Father, we come to You today as a humble people desperate for Your supernatural intervention on behalf of our beloved nation. First, we thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed on our land, blessings that have allowed us to bring so much good and benefit to not only our own citizens but also to the rest of the world.

     "The very ideals upon which this country was founded were based on biblical truths, no matter how some try to rewrite history to deny that very fact today. ... [But] You continue to be marginalized and dismissed by both our people and our institutions.

    "We are also saddened by the fact that Your people have contributed greatly to the spiritual apathy that now engulfs us. Our satisfaction in remaining religious without being fully committed to living out the truths of Your Word has caused us to become co-conspirators with the forces of evil that are destroying us as a society.

    "It is for this reason that we personally and collectively repent of our carnality and recommit ourselves to becoming visible and verbal disciples of Jesus Christ. Enable us, by Your Spirit, to no longer be secret agent Christians but rather to publicly declare and live out Your truth in a spirit of love..." See Americans once agreed to trust God!

Limiting Education?  Want to talk about Jesus? You'll need a permit for that at NC State: “Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas, not places where students need a permit just to exercise their constitutionally protected freedoms.... Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas, not places where students need a permit just to exercise their constitutionally protected freedoms.” See Brainwashing in America

Law or Lawlessness? Justice [Department] manipulated major U.S. city to become 'sanctuary': "Louisiana lawmakers are considering a bill that would ban sanctuary cities in their state, but they learned recently that the state’s largest city, New Orleans, may have been forced, or at least encouraged, to become a safe haven for criminal illegal aliens. And the entity pushing the city to ignore federal immigration laws was the federal government itself.... Among the reforms were new policies governing the way police officers treat suspects... who appear to be recent immigrants. They are not allowed to ask about their immigration status..." See Bloody Utopian Dreams

 

Rage. Trump supporters beaten, bloodied by 'Mexican-flag wavers': "Donald Trump’s rally in Costa Mesa, California, was marked by violent protests from 'almost entirely Latino individuals, many waving Mexican flags, that led police to arrest at least 20 – though eyewitnesses said supporters of the billionaire businessman were all peaceful.... 'The Trump supporters were the peaceful people singing patriotic songs."

 

(A reminder:) Video: Steve Doocy and Marc Morano examine a stuffed armadillo: (The actual movie rebuts the lies about global warming and will be featured at theatres across the country on May 2.  I hope you will all see it!)

Islam.  Europe will 'soon have more Muslims than Christians':  "Muslims will soon outnumber Christians in Europe, a Belgian minister has claimed. ... His comments were followed by Belgian deputy prime minister Jan Jambon warning against Europeans 'making an enemy of Islam,' describing it as 'the worst thing we can do.'" See Americans once agreed to trust God!

Climategate.  EPA Continues To Implement Global Warming Plan: “'EPA has crossed a line by assigning itself vast regulatory authority that surpasses anything ever contemplated by Congress,' Jeffrey Connor, interim CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), said.... 'The fact is that EPA ...crafted a radical plan to restructure the U.S. power sector." See Green Lies and Deceptive Science

Scam? Swedish Government Spends Millions Telling Citizens To Eat Insects To End Global Warming: "Green activists and the United Nations are behind such political initiatives as ‘Meat Free Mondays’ — a gateway to full vegetarianism — which are based on the premise that meat consumption is driving man-made climate change."

Islam.  How Islam erased Christianity from History: "While Christianity continues to be physically erased from the Middle East, lesser known is that its historical role and presence is also being expunged from memory. Last month a video emerged showing Islamic State members tossing hundreds of Christian textbooks, many of them emblazoned with crosses, into a large bonfire. As one report put it, ISIS was 'burning Christian textbooks in an attempt to erase all traces of' Christianity from the ancient region of Mosul." See Chronology of Conquests in the Name of Allah

Spiritual Warfare.  U.N.'s secret plan for 10 times more Syrian 'refugees': "President Obama and Congress have agreed to fund the permanent resettlement of 10,000 Syrian refugees, but the number of Syrians entering the U.S. over the next three years will end up ... possibly up to 10 times larger.... And it’s all about to be done under the radar of Congress with nearly zero media coverage. Fresh evidence to that effect has come from the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees.... Together, those statements indicate the U.N. has many more Syrians in store for the U.S. than what Obama has publicly acknowledged." See Revolutionary Steps to Global Tyranny  

Transformation.  America Is Starting To Look Like Rome Before It Collapsed: "...though we are tremendously divided as to what the solutions are, the vast majority of us can see that something is deeply, deeply wrong with America. ... Illegal drugs continue to be both manufactured and transported into the U.S. with no apparent way of halting or stopping the flow..." See Taking a Stand

Signs of the Times.  British MP called to ethnically cleanse Israeli Jews: "UK Labour Party MP Naz Shah has declared that all Israeli Jews should be 'relocated' to the United States. She even suggested that the British government could pay for the 'transportation costs' of removing Jews from the Middle East... The Labour Party has come under heavy criticism in recent months for its alleged tolerance of anti-Semitism." See Western Europe will soon be 'Judenrein'

Mocking God.  University backs down – removes Jesus dartboard: "After an outcry was raised by students, potential students, alumni and the general public, Rutgers University has removed a 'provocative and controversial' piece of artwork from the campus library.... 'It is surprising that a state university would allow this,' wrote Rutgers graduate Natalie Caruso. 'I asked them to take it down because I found it disrespectful and they refused. How is this acceptable!?'” See Purging the Memory of Our Christian Roots

War?  U.N.'s secret plan for 10 times more Syrian 'refugees': "President Obama and Congress have agreed to fund the permanent resettlement of 10,000 Syrian refugees, but the number of Syrians entering the U.S. over the next three years will end up being much larger. ... it’s all... to be done under the radar of Congress with nearly zero media coverage. ... U.N. has many more Syrians in store for the U.S. than what Obama has publicly acknowledged." See Four Faces of Islam

Faith.  How Islam Erased Christianity from History: "While Christianity continues to be physically erased from the Middle East, lesser known is that its historical role and presence is also being expunged from memory. Last month a video emerged showing Islamic State members tossing hundreds of Christian textbooks, many of them emblazoned with crosses, into a large bonfire. As one report put it, ISIS was 'burning Christian textbooks in an attempt to erase all traces of” Christianity from the ancient region of Mosul, where Christianity once thrived for centuries before the rise of Islam."

Corrupting the Church. (Warning) Willow Creek’s “The Practice” blends New Age & Catholic mysticism: "It’s an experiment called The Practice, and it’s the brainchild of Pastor Bill Hybels’ son-in-law, Aaron Niequist. Niequist is also the Worship Pastor at Willow Creek Community Church, and he calls a Jesuit priest his spiritual director." See Practice Tribe

Revolution.  Barack Obama flashes two fingers - Illuminati Salute at Nuclear Security Summit in Washington: "During a group photo of world leaders, Obama flashed a narrow-eyed grimace as he held up two fingers in a salute used by countless popes and Nazi leaders. A symbol that stands, not for peace, but for world domination and global conquest." See Plots to Rule an Islamic World

Rules for Radicals.  Behind the anti-Trump Disruptors, the Fine Hands of Alinsky and Obama: "In Saul Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals, the late author could have been describing Obama’s last seven years in office when he wrote that an efficacious organizer should be 'an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community.... By employing those techniques on the international level, Alinsky’s star pupil, Barack Obama, has successfully managed to whip up global chaos."

War?  World War III Is Unfolding...: "...Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev has said an intervention by foreign powers would result in 'permanent' war in the region.

The Occult. Bush, Beliefs & Elusive Bonesmen  (John Kerry - also a member of Skull & Bones): "I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That's what I believe.' President George W. Bush.... 'There is a power in these prayers [to various gods].... Skull & Bones has trained three generations of the Bush family: Prescott Bush [How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power], his son George W. H. Bush, and his grandson George W. Bush.... The story begins at Yale, where three threads of American social history -- espionage, drug smuggling and secret societies..." ("..the whole world is under the sway of the evil one." 1 John 5:19)

Obama's Mentor.  Zbigniew Brzezinski: The man behind Obama’s foreign policy (founder of the Trilateral Comission - an organization which seeks to welcan and European mega-corporate interests together for purposes of global corporate domination"):

     "Obama admitted several times before his nomination by the DNC that he had no foreign policy experience whatsoever - except being a Muslim. But not to worry (see the 2006 news story below), foreign policy guru Zbigniew Brzezinsky became Barack Obama's 'new brain.' In other words, Brzezinsky could do all Obama's thinking for him." See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

Conspiracy.  How Isis was born, and the role the US Government had in creating it and empowering it: "ISIS - a geographically and ideologically expanding Muslim terrorist army - has been wrecking havoc for years, and yet the mightiest military power in the world, the USA, has been hesitant to wipe it out. Why?"  See Trusting God as Freedom Fades

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?    ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
