The real gay agenda is on your tv and movie screens

Part 2 of an exclusive interview with Pastor Joe Schimmel of Blessed Hope Chapel in Simi Valley, CA

Shofarsound: There’s hardly a TV show now that doesnt have a “well adjusted” homosexual character. Is this intentional?

Pastor Joe: That’s a great question. Tragically, almost anything that is treated favorably by Hollywood and mass media becomes infectious and catches on, even if it is deadly. Humans are very impressionable and easily led by the liberal media. Television shows and movies have been a powerful weapon in Satan’s arsenal to erode godly morals among the American populace.

Oprah Winfrey, who influences millions, promoted homosexuality when she made a cameo appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ “Coming Out” Episode. Since Oprah claims to be a Christian when in fact she is a new ager, she has duped God only knows how many biblically uninformed Christians on the issue.

Television shows that promote homosexuality are too numerous to list, but in the last couple of years shows like “Degrassi,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Glee” are at the top of the list, when it comes to glamorizing the sin of homosexuality. Many of these TV shows receive awards from the homosexual organization GLAAD for their promotion of homosexual lifestyles. Wise parents will protect their children from being enticed by programming that is intended to program their little ones with gay propaganda.

In “The Overhauling of Straight America,” authors Kirk and Erastes Pill, advocate this strategy to propagate the gay agenda:

“Where we talk is important. The visual media, film and television, are plainly the most powerful image-makers in Western civilization. The average American household watches over seven hours of TV daily. Those hours open up a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed … So far, gay Hollywood has provided our best covert weapon in the battle to desensitize the mainstream” (Marshall K. Kirk and Erastes Pill, “The Overhauling of Straight America.” Guide Magazine, October and November 1987 [emphasis added].

Consider the following revealing stratagem from a popular manual, advocating homosexual propaganda, by Harvard trained gay activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen:

“… Famous historical figures are especially useful to us for two reasons: first, they are invariably dead as a doornail, hence in no position to deny the truth and sue for libel. Second, and more serious, the virtues and accomplishments that make these historic gay figures admirable cannot be gainsaid or dismissed by the public, since high school history textbooks have already set them in incontrovertible cement. By casting its violet spotlight on such revered heroes, in no time a skillful media campaign could have the gay community looking like the veritable fairy godmother to Western civilization” (Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, After the Ball).

We can look at just two of the top movies that came out in the month of June 2011 to see how this propaganda works. The latest X-Men movie (X-Men: First Class) was number one at the box office and very few of the millions who viewed it, knew that they were being indoctrinated by a subversive gay propaganda film.

X-men films develop the theme of various X-men discovering their superpowers, as they struggle with their various mutations and societies reluctance to accept their “coming out,” with their superpowers. Unbelievably, some behind the X-Men movies want their audience to see X-Men as superheroes “coming out,” as analogous to gays coming out of the closet, and their superpowers, as analogous to homosexual lifestyles.

Gay X-Men screenwriter Dan Harris, who wrote the screenplay for X2 with gay screenwriter Michael Dougherty, admitted that he sees X-Men mutancy, and the X-Men’s struggle for acceptance in society, as corresponding to homosexuality:

“…. it’s become more a metaphor for sexual identity and orientation because it’s more appropriate to look at a person and have to say, ‘Are you a mutant?’…. you can’t always look at a person and know that they’re a mutant just like you can’t look at a person and know that they’re gay” ( critic Walter Chaw, X2).

Openly gay X-Men Director, Bryan Singer, has not only directed most of the X-Men movies but recruited openly gay activist actor Ian McKellen, to star as Magneto, by convincing him that mutants were comparable to struggling gays. McKellen stated “I think he expected that I was going to consider it a not posh-enough job,” but revealed that he was told that X-Men is really about Lesbain, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people. “I thought he was right,” says McKellen. “It’s not just a fantasy story. It’s a parable.” McKellen is a co-founder of the LGBT gay activist group Stonewall.
McKellen further stated “[The producers] will tell you one of the demographics that X-Men appeals to is young gays…. There are enough people in this world who think that the answer to the ‘problem’ of being gay is to be ‘cured’ of your abnormality.” Thus in McKellen’s mind, rather than view sex between two men as immoral behavior, why not portray it as positive genetic mutation, on the level of the fantastic powers of a superhero?

Homosexual William Earnest in his article “Making Gay Sense of X-Men,” admitted “Singer and his screenwriters equipped X-Men and X2 with the rhetorical stealth needed to fly below the gaydar of many critics and audience members.” [source]

In the latest X-Men installment, when an X-Men who works for the US military is asked how he got away with being discovered through the years, he replies “Well, they didn’t ask, and I didn’t tell.” An obvious reference to the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy regarding homosexuality in the U.S. military. Thus the line is drawn from this X-men’s superpower to homosexuality, and Hollywood has gone a step further than simply legitimizing what billions of people deem to be sinful and destructive behavior, to glorifying it as something to be coveted like a
cool superpower.

When we turn to Pirates of the Caribbean, which like X-Men, has been one of the most successful series of movies ever released, we see similar brainwashing. Johnny Depp admits that he read the book “Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition,” to prepare for his staring role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Famous Film Reviewer, Robert Ebert wrote: “Depp seems to be channeling a drunken drag queen with his eyeliner and the way he minces ashore and slurs his dialogue ever so insouciantly.” When Rolling Stone asked Depp about the “certain gay undercurrent” so obvious in his Jack Sparrow’s character, Depp responded:

“Well, there was a great book I read…. ‘Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition.’ A very interesting book. I wasn’t exactly going for that with the character. And Keith [Richards] is not flamboyant in his actions. Keith is pretty stealth. But with Jack, it was more that I liked the idea of being ambiguous, of taking this character and making everything a little bit…. questionable. Because women were thought to be bad luck on ships. And these pirates would go out for years at a time. So, you know, there is the possibility that one thing might lead to another. You’re lonely. You have an extra ration of rum. ‘Cabin boy!’” (Rolling Stone, July 2006, p. 50).

Sadly, millions of parents had no idea that Depp had inculcated aspects of a homosexual pirate into his character. Children who are enticed by this character, are led to believe that since Captain Jack is portrayed as a hero, that wearing eye shadow and acting effeminate is the stuff heroes are made of today, unable to always discern the difference between fact and fiction. Gay activist Darrell Risk, in his article “Are Homosexual’s Born That Way?” acknowledges the infectious nature of homosexuality, when young people are exposed to it:

“I have found that even many of my most unbiased straight friends grow skittish with my homosexual candor—say, kissing my mate—when their children are around. Underneath it all, they too understand that sexually free ideas are infectious and that, once introduced to the suggestion of same sex love, their kids might just try it and like it” (Darrell Risk, ‘Born?’ p. 424).

In light of Darrell Risk’s admission that his own public sexual expression has the power to “infect” children who witness it, how much more are the purposely-seductive characters of Jack Sparrow, the X-Men and other Hollywood caricatures and story lines, enticing and infecting millions of our children? Harry Hay, the founder of the gay liberation movement stated, Everyone, even heterosexual people, all have the potential to have that fairy spirit.”

Perhaps no movie has been quite as successful in propagating homosexuality as natural and normative as Brokeback Mountain. To get an understanding of how this movie manipulated the public we can look at a piece of propaganda created out of thin air by the father of the sexual revolution here in America, Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey was exposed for fabricating bogus numbers, when he claimed that 10 percent of Americans are homosexual. Subsequent studies revealed that the truth ended up being between two and three percent. Kinsey was found to have inflated his statistics by interviewing large numbers of prison inmates and prostitutes.

Kinsey also made bogus claim that a disproportionate number of cowboys, who ride their horses in the open range, are in fact gay and hook up with each other to have homosexual encounters. Kinsey never showed any study that would suggest such was the case. I mention this because Kinsey was trying to get America away from the effeminate stereotype of homosexuals that repulsed so many people. Kinsey sought to cast homosexuals as real men. What Kinsey may have done though, was take a page from a Marlboro cigarettes advertising campaign that popularized Marlboro among men just a few years earlier than Kinsey’s wild assertion.

Since 1924, Marlboro was marketed to women, as they were originally designed with a red band around the filter to hide lipstick and advertised as “Mild As May.” In the 1950’s, after cigarettes were proven to cause cancer, Phillip Morris wanted to attract men to his filtered cigarettes, men who would never use filters in the past. How could he get men to smoke what was previously billed a women’s cigarette? Simple: reposition Marlboro as a man’s cigarette by placing it in the mouth of a rugged cowboy. This cowboy, depicted on thousands of billboards nation wide, came to be known as the Marlboro Man. In a matter of months Marlboro went from a market share of less than less one percent to one of the best selling brands in the United States!

Ironically, even though homosexuality is often more deadly than smoking, Hollywood, like Kinsey, sought to make homosexuality acceptable by using a page out of Phillip Morris’ playbook. The licentious movie Brokeback Mountain, recast homosexuality as a lifestyle akin to a healthy masculine cowboy. Kinsey would have been proud!

Shofarsound: Can you give a little more detail on Michael Swift’s comments in the Gay Community News that you mention in your CD expose’ Satanism and Homosexual Agenda?
Pastor Joe: Homosexual activist Michael Swift flaunted gay aspirations in the Gay Community News piece entitled “Gay Revolutionary” as he envisioned a gay utopia:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and

vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools…. in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms…wherever men are men together. Your sons will become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us” [Michael Swift, Gay Community News, 15 February 1987].

What I find chilling, is that while some of Swift’s statements in the piece are somewhat satirical and inflammatory, is that many of the things he articulates as gay aspirations, with regard to our children, are already happening in our “youth groups…. movie theater’s [and] bathrooms” every day.
GCMW Note: Homosexual activists claim the Swift peice was only intended to be taken as “satire”.

Shofarsound: So can we assume that Swift’s revisioning of America under a homosexual rule is coming true?

Pastor Joe: My comments on the question you asked earlier about the media and Hollywood, reveal that they are indeed seeking to “recast” our children in their “image,” as Swift states. Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen detail a three-stage plan to homosexualize America in their book, After the Ball. They describe the plan to further the gay agenda and homosexualize America as a threefold plan, “desensitize, jam, and convert.”

The first stage is to desensitize by inundating the public with a “continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible.” They go on to say, “The main thing is to talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome . . . If you can get [straights] to think [homosexuality] is just another thing—meriting no more than a shrug of the shoulders—then your battle for legal and societal rights is virtually won.” The second stage, “Jamming,” is described as “psychological terrorism meant to silence expression or even support for dissenting opinion.” The third stage is “Conversion” and they define it as the “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media” (Selling Homosexuality to America,” Regent Law Review, Volume 14, Number 2, Spring, 2002, available at

"Christian" Radio Host Teaches How One Can Channel the Life Force

in this link below, Howse talks about a "Christian" radio show in California is embracing and teaching eastern, mystical practices for physical and spiritual healing (2 Tim. 4:3-4).  This gives us another insight/glimpse into the compromise infiltrating the Church of the Living God, because even those called by His name are Biblically illeterate (Hos. 4:6).

A Call Forward for Salem

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6a

Every Pastor and Counselor knows that every story has two sides. “The first to plead his case seems right till someone comes to examine him” (Pr. 18:17). During this trial at Salem Baptist, charges were laid against the pastor on Sunday night.

As Southern Baptists, we take pride in believing we follow the Bible, and claiming its total authority for life. But we do not practice what we preach. We know that God is completely sovereign, and that the Lord brought pastor Joe here, and has brought me here to serve alongside him as a co-pastor. With charges being laid, they need to be examined and answered with truth.

We need to be careful in laying charges against God’s anointed. Korah did so, and was enraged at Moses for “making himself more holy” than the rest of the Jews (Num. 16:1-2). Korah, in his arrogance claimed to be as holy as Moses (v. 3ff). God threatened to wipe out all the Jews and begin again with Moses (v. 21), but afte Moses and Aaron interceded for the people, God had mercy and only destroyed Korah, Dathan and Abiram (vv. 31-33)

We need to be careful we do not find ourselves fighting against the Lord Christ. So as a body of believers, we need to seek peace (reconciliation) with one another (Rom. 14:19), and make sure we are following the Lord Jesus’ will for Salem Baptist (Matt. 5:16; Rom 8:29-30; Phil. 3:7-11).

The purpose for the existence of the Church is not to do ministry the way we think it should be done, or for our desires, or according to the latest church growth paradigm, but for the glorification of Christ, and the upbuilding of the body of Christ, into conformity with Him who is its head (Rom. 8:28-30; 1 Cor 14:12).

It should serve as no surprise to us that demonic forces should try to divide the church in these last days we are living in (1 Ptr. 4:12-13, 5:8-9). He already knows the time for his emergence is near, and his time is short (Rev. 12:12).

So in these times of trial, what should our perspective be? We should be seeing and understanding this trial as an opportunity to know Christ better, and to let his light shine through us. It is during the hard times that the light of Christ shines the most brightly.

Monday morning, the LORD spoke to me as I was in his word. I was just praying and meditating on (actively thinking about) the situation. The Lord impressed upon me 1 Cor. 13:4-8, and you know, as the chapter starts out, Paul says, “If I speak the languages of men and of angels, but do not have love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith, so that I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing… if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

So that is the first mark of Christian character we should display is agape (God’s unconditional love). And agape never fails (v. 8).

Another passage comes to mind, Colossians 3:1-4, “So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. When the Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.”

Thank God that the mediation team is in place, and let us pray daily for them that God will give them understanding and wisdom, and that the purposes of God will prevail in this situation.

2 Corinthians 12:19 19 All this time you have been thinking that we are defending ourselves to you. Actually, it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and all for your upbuilding, beloved.

Turkey Struck after Striking Apple of God's Eye

The Bible teaches that Israel is the apple of God's eye (Zech. 2:8). 

Over the past few months, Turkey has been growing increasingly hostile to its Israeli neighbors, with whom they were on good terms.  This coincides with a simultaneous turning towards a more radical form of Islam, and a desire of Turkey's president Erdogan to reestablish the ancient Islamic Ottoman empire.  Turkey was struck Sunday with a 7.2 magnitude earthquake

Islam sees itself as having a divine mandate from Allah (600 years after the gospels were composed and the New Testament sealed) to spread/enforce through jihad an Islamic Caliphate worldwide.  But as Turkey grows in solidarity with the Muslim nations that are surrounding Israel, they overlook the promise that Yaweh God made to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

We know that all in the world who believe are blessed in Jesus Christ, through the covenant promise first made to Eve, traced down through Abraham, and on through Isaac and Jacob (Jn 3:16-17).  As tensions mount int he Middle East, and Israel is continually made the scapegoat of the nations' problems, we can expect things to get worse in the Middle East, and soon culminating in a battle spelled out in Is. 17:1 and Psalm 83.

And as these conditions develop in the Middle East, the power and extent of the one-world government continues to extend.  The one-world government is here now, they are merely waiting for the right opportunity to impose it over the world's citizens.  Will it occur through the rapture occurring, which would lead to a global financial collapse?  If it were, military law would be imposed and the new methods of identification and tracking would be enacted for the "safety" of the world's citizens. 

The battle of Psalm 83 being fulfilled, would enlarge Israel's borders, and allow her the building of her temple, and the official reinstatement of the Old Covenant sacrificial religion.  This will set the stage for the battle of Magog, where God Himself will fight for Israel supernaturally (Ezek. 38:19,22).

Should we be concerned for the peoples in the Middle East, certainly, and we should pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Ps. 122:6), and support them as we are able, as responsible citizens.  But we should not live in fear or be in dread of the things coming upon the earth.  If we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and seek to live our lives to His glory, then we should live in joy and expectation (Mt. 24:33).

Harold Camping again predicts End of The World

Calif. group again predicts end of world Friday

This should not surprise us.  But what we need to do is to look at what the Bible says about when the End of the World is going to happen.  And I think with the reporting done on the H. Camping predictions, there has been some confusion to the Biblical teachings.

Camping is claiming to have found out through mathematical equations, supposedly given in the letters of scripture, the timing of the rapture.  The "Catching Away" of the saints, and the literal end of the world are two separate events.  In fact, the rapture, or "catching away" of the saints (1 Thess. 4:15-17) seems to almost immediately precede the revealing of the man of lawlessness, better known as the Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:7).

If 2 Thess. 2:7 is indeed referring to the Holy Spirit in the presence of the Church, (1 Thess. 4:15-17) then the rapture would merely begin the 70th shabua (or "week") in Dan. 9:26-27.  And scripture seems to indicate that there would be a time of peace for the first three and a half years, and then the man (the Maitreya/ Mahdi?) heading up the one world government in the "new age" would take his seat in the Jewish temple, which is waiting to be rebuilt now, and demand universal worship to himself as God, but we know he is only a god for a brief time (Rev. 13:1-10; 19:19-20). 

But if the timing of the rapture were something to be known, why wouldn't God spell that out clearly, like the rest of it the last days events?  All we know of the rapture is that nothing in scripture dictates precisely when it will occur.  It could happen today.  It could happen two years from now, so it is imminent.

After the taking of the church, the world will remain, and scripture teaches the man of lawlessness will remain seven more years before the coming of the Messiah, our Lord Jesus (Dan. 9:27, 7:18).  This begins the time of the outpouring of the wrath of El Elyon (God Most High) upon the earth.  People will come to Christ in this time, though it will require their life, and possibly their head (Rev. 20:4).

The real indicator of when the "end of the world" will be is the signing of the 7-year peace treaty by a world leader, who is regarded by humanity as a 'savior'.  Then you know there will be seven more years before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But even that is not the end, for in Isaiah 65:20, a passage by many thought to be speaking of the state of the world under the millennial reign of Christ, it states that those who die at 100 will be considered accursed (a sinner).  So some unbelievers will live to see Christ come down from heaven, establish his rule from Zion (yes, Jesus is a Zionist!) Zech. 14:9.  So during the one thousand year reign of Christ, sinners will have the opportunity to know Christ as their Savior, but even then, not all will.

Revelation gives us a glimpse that at the end of the thousand year reign, Satan, our enemy, is going to be released from the abyss, and he will come out to deceive the nations once more, and lead them in a battle to make war on the Messiah (Rev. 20:7-10) and His people.  But they will again, be quickly defeated, and the great judgment will take place, and then God will renew the heavens and the earth (Rev. 21:5), and His dwelling will be among men (Rev. 21:2-3), and so we will dwell with God forever more.

He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming quickly.'  Amen, Come, Lord Jesus.  Rev. 22:20

The 'Third Way' Bubbles Are Bursting

This article spells it out like I've always said it, capitalism hasn't failed...

The 'Third Way' Bubbles Are Bursting

In his article, Robert Trasinski concludes:

I'm beginning to suspect that the credit "bubble" is one of the hallmarks of such a system. It reflects the hybrid nature of the system. It is a system that still has property rights, private savings, financial markets, and ambitious individuals exuberantly reacting to price signals in a frenzy of activity. But behind that is the "management" of government, which serves to distort those price signals and misdirect trillions of dollars of private economic activity. The government decides that housing, for example, or "green energy" is an industry to be supported with cheap credit, loan guarantees, and subsidies, making it seem artificially profitable and leading investors to pour more money into these activities than the economy can actually support over the long run.

Or European governments decide that Greece should be allowed, through the mechanism of the Eurozone, to issue its debt at the same low interest rates as Germany. And then they decide, when the financial crisis hits in 2008, that European banks should increase their reserves by loading up on the "safe" debt of European governments. Or in China, the corrupt incentives driving government officials--who don't need to fear the scrutiny of a free press or the accountability of free elections--encourages unsustainable borrowing and out-of-control real-estate speculation. All of these bubbles are bursting or are about to be burst.

Mohler on Mormonism, Democracy and the need for Evangelical Thinking

As a nice followup to my recent blog dealing with Mormonism, and the issue of whether or not it is Christian, my former seminary president Albert Mohler addressess the issue in a very clear, thoughtful manner where he lists the issues at stake and gives a short, concise history of the Latter Day Saints to show it is another religion, and gives Evangelicals insight on voting.

Is a Mormon Christian?... What is the Gospel?

Our country is in a theological muddle.  Lately, as I'm sure you've seen, we've got many public leaders, including those who call the name, "Evangelical" that Mormons are Christian, and many groups and many people claim to be Christian.  How can one determine whether these people or groups are truly Christian?  Don't they believe in Jesus too?  One famous Mormon claims to have been "born again" when Jesus became his Lord and Savior.  It sounds very Christian.

To determine whether some one or group is Christian, we must go to the original source that defines what being a Christian is.  That is the holy Bible.  Jesus taught his followers, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father, except through Me"  (Jn 14:6).  The doctor Luke tells us in Acts, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). 

And in fact, Mormons, and other groups I'm sure, will confess this truth also.  So what sets apart the orthodox, Evangelical Christian?  This is where we examine the presuppositional ideas and understanding of the parties in question.

First off, what does the Bible teach?  Now the answer to this question could make up a semester long seminary course.  Clearly, there is not space for this, so we will narrow the question to the most important figure, and conerstone of the Christian faith: Jesus of Nazareth (Mt. 2:23).  Jesus, the Bible teaches, is the only begotten Son of the Living God (Jn. 3:16, 20:31; 1 Cor. 1:9; 1 Jn. 1:3), that he is equal, co-eternal with God the Father. (Rom 1:3-4; Rev 1:7-8, 22:13), and that He was born of the Holy Spirit (Is. 7:14; Lk. 1:35).  Jesus Christ, through his death and suffering of crucifixion on the cross, would be the propitiation (atoning sacrifice) of our sins, and provide justification for the many (Ps. 22:16; Is. 53:5-11; Jn. 1:29; Mt. 26:2; Jn. 13:1).  The scriptures teach, as cited above, that salvation is through faith only in his name, by grace (Eph. 2:8,9; Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12).  After the sending of the Holy Spirit, at the Jewish feast of Pentecost (instituted in Lev. 23), who inspired the apostles in the writing of the New Testament, the Bible teaches revelation was sealed, finito (Heb. 1:2).

The Mormon faith teaches that Jesus is the spiritual firstborn son of God, and spirit brother to every other human and angel (including Satan/Lucifer).  Since Mormons do not believe in the Trinity as claimed by the Biblical faith, Mormonism teaches that God the Father came down and had sex with the virgin Mary to impregnate her with Jesus.  It teaches that life on earth is a school or test, if you will, for the spirit children of God to attain to their own state of god-hood.  Yes, the goal of Mormons is to be god, of their own planet with their own spirit children (born of their goddess wife/wives).  "As man is, God once was. As God is, man can become."

Mormons believe do not hold that revelation was closed with the person of Jesus Christ.  They believe in a progressive revelation, as do the New Apostolic Reformation, of which Gov. Perry joined with in organizing and facilitating The Response fasting and prayer rally.  And Mormons, as the NAR prophets and pastors, believe in the mandate of "taking back" America in the name of their religion.

The Mormons have a "white horse" prophecy of the nation being rescued by a Mormon coming to office as president and restoring the nation, with all the people apologizing and giving gratitude to the Mormons for rescuing the nation, and restoring us to our "divinely-inspired" US Consitution.  The Bible teaches that the world will come under the control of a one-world leader, a one-world government (Dan. 7:23) which will be under his control for seven years (Dan. 9:27), but then the Messiah will return to set up his rightful rule, for one thousand years (Zech 14:9), before Satan is let loose again to deceive the nations (Rev. 20:7,8).  Then the world will be destroyed by fire (2 Ptr. 3:7) and the great judgment, and then all things will be made new.  After this, the redeemed, those who were born-again will live upon earth with God and serve the LORD and live in a paradise forevermore (Rev. 21:1, 5).

The holy Bible teaches that salvation is "by grace, through faith, and that not of yourselves.  It is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph 2:8,9).  The Mormon book of 2 Nephi states "for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do."  2 Nephi 25:23 sounds very close to what the Bible teaches, but adds a almost subtle difference, "after all we can do."  That changes the whole game and puts Mormonism into the category of salvation-by-works, like every other world religion except for Christianity, which states, "it is the gift of God, not of works, lest no man should boast."

One well known so-called evangelical (or wolf in sheep's clothing) leader recently said that Mitt Romney is an "outstanding Christian."  Really?  Doesn't that fly in the face of what the Bible says of the elect?  How could an "outstanding" evangelical leader make such an error?  The apostle Paul, former murderer and persecutor of the church, wrote: "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, were to preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, let him be anathema (eternally accursed)" Gal. 1:8. 

Clearly Joseph Smith didn't have this verse in mind when the angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14) appeared to him and taught him the "true" gospel.

Good Fight Ministries - Heath Ledger

Good Fight Ministries - Heath Ledger

Ever wonder about Heath Ledger, what made him such an edgy actor? Goodfight ministries goes into alot of the oppression and darkness that plagued him in his last days and at his death shortly after playing the role of the Joker in the Dark Knight. And not only that, but he also touches on some of the other celebrities, and the spiritual "advantage" this gives them in acting.

In one paragraph, Goodfight states:
Few people realize the dark spiritual side of acting going all the way back to the Greek theater. The best actors in Greek theater were believed to be literally possessed by the entities they sought to portray on stage. Many occultists, like Aleister Crowley, taught that acting and assuming the role of a particular demon was the fastest way to come into contact with a demonic entity. Many actors and actresses have credited their success to possession by a spirit entity. Robin Williams claimed that when acting he becomes possessed, and that in the past they would have burned him as a witch. New Ager, Shirley McClain, has also admitted spirit possession when acting. Matrix star, Keanu Reeves, states that he attempts to connect with his muse and goes on what he refers to as “demon rides” when acting. Johnny Depp has claimed that he is possessed with a multitude of demons and Denzel Washington claims that he is able to put out such great performances because he gets on his knees and calls on spirits to possess his body and empower him to play a given role. Oprah Winfrey has claimed that she lights candles and then petitions spirits to possess her so that she can better perform as well. “I tried to empty myself and let the spirit of Sethe inhabit me,” admits Winfrey. Director, Jonathon Demme, who directed the movie Beloved, said of Winfrey's performance, “Oprah had explained to me when we originally met that it was her goal and intention to channel the spirit of Margaret Garner...This very infusion of humanity past accounts to a significant degree for Oprah's stunning alchemy, her astonishing abandonment of self in her Beloved performance.”

Global Hypocrisy Watch: Syria, Kurds and Palestinians

Global Hypocrisy Watch: Syria, Kurds and Palestinians: The assassination of a Kurdish opposition leader in Syria may lead to more violence as protests against the Assad regime escalate. But it should also serve as a reminder of the hypocrisy of much of the world’s attitudes about the Middle East. While most of the world has been obsessing about the alleged wrongs of [...]

Is Damascus Closer to Annihilation?

Joel Rosenberg, messianic Jew and commentator and author on the Middle East, reports on his blog

Further evidence that Israel is facing a “gathering storm” in the Middle East came Tuesday as the dictator of Damascus made one of his most serious threats to date against the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Excerpt from Ynet News: ”Syrian President Bashar Assad on Tuesday threatened to set fire to the Middle East, and especially to Israel, if NATO attacks Syria, the Iranian Fars news agency reported. In a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Assad said: ‘If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.’….According to the Fars news agency, the Syrian president stressed that Damascus will also call on Hezbollah in Lebanon to launch a fierce rocket and missile attack on Israel, one that Israeli intelligence could never imagine.” The Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz also reported the story.

The good news: the Jewish state is more secure at the moment than any other time in her 63-year modern history. The bad news: grave threats are rising from Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Turkey, Egypt and elsewhere in the region.

For students of Bible Prophecy, we have been watching Syria, as the devastation predicted in Isaiah 17:1 has yet to occur, and so many believe that scripture is to be fulfilled in the near future with events related to Israel, and the Messiah's return at the end of the 70th week (Dan. 9:27). 

It appears that tensions in Syria are escalating, and this "gentle eye-doctor" running Syria is resorting to making threats, and fomenting Muslim rage against the chosen the land of Israel.  It appears that the pronouncements of this prophecy are coming to be more quickly as international pressure is applied to Syria, and Muslim leaders increasingly use Israel as their scapegoat.

And as Joel points out in his blog, the threats arising against Israel are increasing form all around her.  To our human eyes this indeed looks like a grave situation for Israel, indeed.  It appears that the Muslim goal of wiping Israel off the map is about to be accomplished.  But the scriptures tell us a different story. 

Ps. 83 tells of a coming war with all Israel's surrounding enemies.  And the psalm ends with a cry for justice to Yahweh to destroy the enemies as the LORD has done in past battles (Ps. 83:9-12). 

2 For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves. 3 They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones. 4 They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more." 5 For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant:
Psalm 83:2-5

This fits the situation of Israel and the Middle East perfectly, as does Isaiah 19 with all that has been developing in Egypt.  And as God's word has been fulfilled perfectly and will be till the end (Matt. 5:18), we should heed its foreboding warning with great sobriety.  As the crisis develops in the Middle East, and with the State of Israel, it seems Syria gets further entangled in the situation.  Its' leaders should give heed to the word of the Most High:

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. "Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city And will become a fallen ruin.

His new book explains the strange social attachment to vampires and werewolves, along with the growing fad of ghost-hunting and spirit communication. You'll be surprised at the nexus between ghoulish fiction and demonic activity and its threat to society,

Nigel Farage: Financial “Cataclysm” To Come, Gold to Unimaginable Levels

Author: Mac Slavo

September 23rd, 2011

Comments (252)

You may remember Nigel Farage as the EU parliament member who tore into the President of the EU and most recently held a funeral for the Euro (complete with casket, pall bearers, and procession) on the streets of London.

Mr. Farage is a former commodities broker on the London Metals Exchange, so he understands the financial markets and monetary system (unlike 99% of the other politicians in the EU and DC), as well as the implications of the current debt crisis facing not just Europe, but the entire world. You’ll rarely hear a politician come out from behind the curtain as Nigel Farage does. Like most of us, he’s not very optimistic about what’s to come, and he lays out his views in an interview with King World News which is well worth listening to in full:

Paralysis, I think that’s the only way one can describe it. They put together a currency, an economic and monetary union of countries that were entirely unsuited to each other. The idea that Greece and Germany could coexist under the same monetary framework was always a joke as far as I was concerned.

So now we’re at the crisis point where the Greeks have been bailed out twice. The Portuguese and the Irish have been bailed out once and we now have the markets indicating that there are problems in Spain and possibly even in Italy, which is the Eurozone’s third largest economy.

The banking system is just in the most awful mess. And of course, what will happen, and this is what the markets fear, is that once we get countries like Greece defaulting we then have an admission that the debts they owe to these banks are not going to be paid back. That, in essence, is what default really means. So, I’m afraid we’ve just had the most catastrophic series of people running banks, they’ve been encouraged by big government, the whole concept of financial regulations has failed, and we are indeed heading into very dangerous waters.

I think that default of Greece and Portugal, and possibly Ireland, too, are inevitable.

I think the worst in the financial system is yet to come, a possible cataclysm and if that happens the gold price could go (higher) to a number that we simply cannot, at this moment, even imagine. Gold is in an uptrend and professional traders should be buying the dips.

Listen to the full interview (12 Minutes):

There is simply no way that Greece, Portugal and likely a host of other countries (not just Ireland) will not eventually default. We really don’t know the extent of the debts and leverage involved because all of the monetary and financial machinations over the last ten, and especially three, years have been done in secret. There are likely hundreds of banks and many governments that have significant exposure to toxic assets – and not just in Europe. Our own Federal Reserve reportedly holds over a trillion dollars in assets that are essentially worthless.

If we were, as former Secretary Hank Paulson said, “very, very close” to meltdown in 2008, and they were threatening us with tanks on the streets of America, and absolutely nothing has been resolved, then what’s in store for us going forward?

Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday, that the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousands points the first day, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no.

House Representative Brad Sherman (D-California)

Debate on the House Floor, October 2, 2008

We can’t stress enough how serious this crisis is for the general global economy and the stability of the entire social and political systems of developed Western nations. Trillions of non-existent dollars and euros have been committed to resolving this crisis, and we are now worse off than when we started stimulating in 2008.

Do not underestimate what’s happening here.


Exactly, don't underestimate what is happening here.  According to the unfolding plan of God's will spelled out in the pages of Holy Scripture, we can see that his is further implementation according to "their" plan to bring about the one world government, under the control of one person.

Some invovled in the process want the system to work, but to truly have control over the entire globe, one monetary, authoritarian structure must be in place.  And in order for this to work, there must also be a one-world religion that over-arches and includes all other religions.

True Chrisitanity cannot be included in this, but it is the world's one truly exclusive faith.  "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).  Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father, but through Me" (Jn. 14:6).   There you have it.  No other way, than through what Jesus did for us on the cross, when he died as the proopitiation for our sins, and took God's fierce wrath upon His own person, and actually tasted hell for us (Eph. 4:9). 
That is another reason for the mounting and continual persecution of those who refuse to bow the knee to the gods of this world, much like Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani in Iran.  So while the world scrambles to make sure they secure their "riches," awaiting the collapse of the economic system, and preparing for how they can survive, we are encouraged and take heed of the words of Jesus:

"Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of teseting, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth." 

And in Matt. 24, the famous end-times passage: "When you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door." (Mt. 24:33).
Even so, Come Lord Jesus.
