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

We believe...
- in the One almighty God, who has revealed Himself through His Word as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.  He tells us:
"My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled....

John 14:27

"Pray for God's people around the world!  As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading fast and God's Word is banned from most of our public schools. Jews and Christians are persecuted in many parts of the world. But in the midst of these changes, our God still reigns! "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!"

Unthinkable War!  Child Soldiers Forced To Fight For ISIS: "Boys as young as 12, many of them captured Yazidis, are forced to convert to Islam and fight for the Islamic State, sometimes against their own communities. This report from France 24 looks at two young Yazidi boys who narrowly escaped that fate."

Obama's Agenda for America.  White House Plans to Develop a 'Country Within a Country' of 15 Million 'New Americans': "The 'Task Force of New Americans' and the 'Receiving Communities' are part of a plan by the Obama administration to develop a 'country within a country' which will eventually form a new, and instantly fundamentally transformed United States. The conference calls and meetings surrounding the task force made it clear Barack Obama is planning to legalize and protect 13 to 15 million illegal immigrants who will then be moved onto citizenship.

    "When these 'new Americans' come out of the shadows, the communities in which they’ve been placed will be designated as 'receiving communities.' The 'new Americans' are considered 'seedlings' by the White House and the 'receiving communities' are the 'fertile ground' to nurture them.... Citizens will then be pushed into the shadows....

Signs of the Times.  The Breakdown Of U.S.-Israeli Relations Brings Us Several Steps Closer To World War III: "In the past 40 years, we have never been closer to World War III than we are today. ... And thanks to the stunning breakdown of U.S.-Israeli relations, we are now closer to that war than we have been in decades. "Since the 1970s, the United States has served as the major buffer between Israel and her Islamic neighbors. Israel has trusted the United States to protect it, and Israel’s enemies have known that an all-out assault on Israel would be fruitless because the U.S. military would step in." (This article is followed by many pages with comments and ads.

War!  VIDEO: ISIS Leader Was Armed & Funded by Obama White House: "A top member of the jihadist group that the US government and NATO armed and funded in the overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi back in 2011 is now leading ISIS forces in Libya."


Revolution?  Admiral Lyons on Obama’s Strategy: ‘It’s Anti-American ... Pro-Islamic, It’s Pro-Iranian, and Pro-Muslim Brotherhood!’: "Admiral James 'Ace' Lyons, Jr. (Ret.), the former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, said that President Barack Obama does have a strategy for dealing with Islamic radicals in the Middle East and it is an 'anti-American' and 'pro-Islamic' strategy,' as well as 'pro-Iranian' and 'pro-Muslim Brotherhood' strategy....

     "'I think the one who identified it the best was... Erdogan from Turkey when he said, ‘Islam is Islam. There are no modifiers [e.g., Islamic extremism]....

     "[T]he Obama Administration has a strategy.... 'It’s anti-American, anti-Western, it’s pro-Islamic, it’s pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood!”'


Netanyahu: Transcript: Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Congress Speech on the Iranian Nuclear Threat, 2015


Police State?  Obama to Expand Federal Control Over State, Local Police: "The plan released Monday, entitled Task Force on 21st Century Policing, advocates the federalization of police agencies across the country by forcing them to adhere to stricter requirements when they receive federal funding. ... The plan also calls for the feds to collect more data on state and local policing.... The plan follows the same strategy laid out by Common Core: expand federal power on the state and local level by adding more conditions to federal funding." See Trusting God as Freedom Fades


War?  Kim Jong Un reportedly tells North Korean army to 'prepare for war' with US: "North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly told the army to prepare for war with the United States and its allies.... Kim reportedly told the army to train to 'tear to pieces the Stars Stripes.'"


Netanyahu:  Israel's PM Benyamin Netanyahu speech to Congress: "The greatest danger to the world is nuclear weapons in the hands of militant Islam - Iran is already involved in spreading Muslim terror all over the region and the rest of the world. The current White House deal with Iran would allow it to quickly develop nuclear weapons.... 'Iran threatens not only Israel but the whole Middle East and the rest of the world."'


Persecution?  Franklin Graham: New Obama danger for Christians: “'We’re going to see persecution in this country because our president is very sympathetic to Islam, and the reason I say that … is because his father was a Muslim, gave him a Muslim name, Barack Hussein Obama,' Graham said.... 'His mother married another Muslim man. They moved to Indonesia. He went to Indonesian schools. So, growing up, his frame of reference and his influence as a young man was Islam. It wasn’t Christianity..." See Spiritual Warfare: Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!

John Adams warned us long ago: We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Signs of the Times. Obama’s Threat of War Against Israel: "There is an old saying. If Islam was to lay down its weapons in the Middle East, there would be no more war in the region. If Israel was to lay down its weapons in the Middle East, there would be no more Israel in the region. When a threat against Israel rises, time and time again the small Jewish nation launching a first strike has saved them from annihilation."


America's Fall?  The Planned Subjugation of America’s Population: "The actual blueprint of the method of the madness of the Obama regime has been laid bare in White House plans to develop 'A Country Within A country' of 15 Million “New Americans, a story brought to light by Mark Levin’s interview with Susan Payne."

Avoid War?  Netanyahu, Churchill and Congress: Trying to Avert War: "There are striking similarities between the objectives of Churchill's speech nearly 75 years ago and Netanyahu's today; both with no less purpose than to avert global conflagration. And, like Churchill's in the 1930s, Netanyahu's is the lone voice among world leaders today.

     "There is no doubt abut Iran's intent. It has been described as a nuclear Auschwitz. Israel is not the only target of Iranian violence. Iran has long been making good on its promises to mobilize Islamic forces against the US, as well as the UK and other American allies. ... 'It is not yet too late to prevent Iran from arming itself with nuclear weapons.'" See Spiritual Warfare


No Conscience? Being "Protected" in Turkey: "You wonder why rape has become a malady in Turkey? Ask your government deputy and he will explain: Popular Turkish soap operas! ... Imagine a country where taking public transport or merely going to school (especially for young women) or playing with snowballs in the street can be categorized as sports of extreme danger." See Who shapes our conscience?


Corrupting America & the World. Obama Task Force on New Americans: Changing America by ‘seeding’ migrants in towns everywhere: "Obama is changing America by changing the people! You might even say he is 'colonizing' America!...

    "The task force was created in November.... Now they are getting to work under the guidance of none-other than former La Raza.... Note that they wanted to keep whatever was said from the press: “Note to the media: This engagement is not for press purposes.'

    "Obama and his cabal of Open Borders agitators are working to further blur definitions involving categories of legal immigration (eg refugees) and illegal aliens.  ...the task force seeking to change America wants to transform all of the newly amnestied aliens into 'refugees.'... Because refugees have all forms of welfare (including health care) available to them while other classes of immigrants (both legal and illegal do not) and they are on a fast track to citizenship."


Obama. Obama Warns Congress He Will Veto Legislation Against Iran Deal: "In response to Obama’s decision to veto the bill, Senator Corker responded that it was 'disappointing that the president feels he is the only one who speaks for the citizens of our country.' Obama’s announcement comes during a critical moment of negotiations between Iran and Western powers.

    "On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to address a joint session of Congress in what has become a controversial speech on the dangers of a nuclear Iran. The prime minister said on Saturday prior to this departure to the US that, 'As Prime Minister of Israel, it is my obligation to see to the security of Israel; therefore, we strongly oppose the agreement being formulated with Iran and the major powers, which could endanger our very existence.'

Faith.  The Victory of the Cross: "Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!" Fanny Crosby, who wrote that joyful hymn, was truly blessed with an unwavering confidence in God's loving grace! Born into a humble family in 1820, she became totally blind through a medical error six weeks later.... When only eight years old she wrote,

'O what a happy soul am I! Although I cannot see,

I am resolved that in this world, contented I will be.'

"Fanny shared her joy through hundreds of hymns sung in churches throughout the English-speaking world. 'I thank Him for the dispensation [of blindness],' she wrote one day. 'I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me."

'These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.' John 16:33

"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
