Why America's Wounds Can't Be Healed

Humpty dumpty falling of the wall with the sky and clouds behind

It gives me no pleasure to write things like this but it’s part of my calling, to call out sin where and when I see it and America is full of it (sin).

2 Chronicles 7:14 is a scripture that’s quoted by the American liberty movement quite often. It says that if we humble ourselves, seek God and turn from our wicked ways that He will heal our land. That sounds great right? Why don’t we get right on that? How would we do that as a nation? What would that look like? We can get a glimpse of it by going back to the Old Testament.

This story is found in Jonah 1:1-2, where God asked Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach against it because of its wickedness before God. Unlike his previous experience where he ran away and ended up inside a whale, this time he obeyed. Jonah preached of the coming judgment to the city of Nineveh (Jonah 3:4), to which they responded from the greatest to the least, by believing God, fasting, and putting on sackcloth (Jonah 3:5).

How many people in America can we get to do those things? How many could we get to even HUMBLE themselves? That is America’s giant Achilles heel, PRIDE. God hates pride. He rails against it in many different scriptures Want proof? Check out these scriptures against PRIDE. Which brings me to our current President of the United States, Donald J Trump.

The media tried to warn us about the kind of man Donald Trump really was but everyone jumped on the “fake news” catchphrase and bandwagon. I admit it was refreshing hearing someone put the media whores in the place but it was all based on emotions. Even the “libtard” Huffington Post got the truth out to us back in July 2016 but because of the source, no one listened. You can read the rest of the article here, but I’ll post some highlights below.

Jesus: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you.”
Trump: “When people wrong you, go after those people, because it is a good feeling and because other people will see you doing it. I always get even.”

Jesus: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Trump: “Why do I have to repent, why do I have to ask for forgiveness if [I’m] not making mistakes?”

And finally the coup de grace

Jesus: “Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Trump: “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”

How are we supposed to humble ourselves from the greatest to the least when we have a President and leaders like this? Our President is the personification of foolish pride and self aggrandizement. He is the symbol of victory for many in the Evangelical community despite all of the evidence they’ve been shown. He is the ultimate sheep in wolves clothing.

Humbling ourselves, prayer and seeking God’s face is what we as believers should be doing on a daily basis. But we are a peculiar people (1 Peter 2:9) so the world at large will continue to not understand. Unless one is born again spiritually it is impossible to understand God’s word and His ways. I would LOVE IT if we could make 2 Chronicles 7:14 work for the WORLD, not just America. Sadly our foolish pride will keep it from happending.

God bless and remember, seek first the kingdom everyday and everything else will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).

Game On or Is it?

Iran has responded to the assassination of General Soleimani after he was laid to rest in Iran today. The response was 2 salvos of short range ballistic missiles fired from Iran at 2 different American bases in Iraq. The Americans said no one was hurt while the Arabic press is spouting off about American casualties.

Now that the missile salvos are over Iran says it will stand down and will attack no more unless the US attacks again. What a mess. However IF the US truly wants a cease fire it appears they can have one. Tomorrow morning President Trump will make an address to the nation. The time hasn’t been announced as of yet but we expect some sort of short statement.

God bless and stay prayed up and ready!

Time is Very Short

Tick Tock

Time is very short. That was the theme the Holy Spirit wanted me to get out to the world this morning. I pray this message reaches those who it’s meant to reach in Jesus name!

In case you weren’t paying attention, we are in the end times. Everything Jesus told us to look for in Matthew 24 is here and taking place right now. These are the “birth pangs” of the tribulation and it will only get worse from here. The world is shaping up for some major regional wars that can and will quickly escalate into a world war. The evil ones running the show (along with Satan) need to kill a lot of us if they want to get to their 500 million worldwide population goals. War takes care of that in many different ways besides just bombs and guns. War zones are full of disease and starvation and that kills more people in the long run than their fancy weapons systems. Time is very short.


Last weekend (it’s 12-30-19) the USA started bombing Hezbollah militias in Iraq as they’ve been accused of shooting rockets at US bases there. This was followed by more rockets and promises of future attacks on US troops and facilities in Iraq. This is one of those regional issues I was talking about above. This could escalate very quickly to engulf the entire region in war. In addition to this hot spot we could name Ukraine, South China Sea, Black Sea, the arctic and let’s not forget about the ongoing tensions in Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Time is very short.


Then there are the earthquakes going on in the ring of fire and other places around the planet. One that is very concerning in the US is the Cascadia Subduction Zone. That area is overdue for a big one (9.0 or greater) and scientists say it could wipe out everything west of Interstate 5. One comparison I’m seeing used is the 2004 Indian Ocean (M9.3) earthquake and tsunami that killed over 200,000 in 14 countries. The subduction zones in the 2 places are eerily similar in size and shape and the results would be just as deadly in the Cascadia Subduction Zone as it was in the Indian Ocean, maybe worse. You can read more about those comparisons HERE. Time is very short.


Last but not least are the superbugs. I see at least 2-3 articles per month about this subject and it’s only getting worse. The sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are also off the charts as many articles like THIS show us. Jesus talked about pestilences in Matthew 24:7 along with famine and earthquakes. Obviously, He felt the need to include pestilences in that verse which tells us we should be paying attention. Just google superbugs and STDs being off the charts and you will find all of the evidence you need. Time is very short.


In conclusion I have to agree time is very short indeed. I’ve never experienced such intense spiritual attacks in my lifetime. Typing out this blog post or doing a 5-minute video has never been harder as I’m up against such resistance in the spiritual realm. It manifests itself into anxiety attacks, insomnia or just being really crabby and not knowing why. Those are spiritual attacks that we can’t see but we can definitely feel. The Holy Spirit has shown me I need to really dig into the word now more than ever before in order to be able to fight off these attacks. Faith comes by hearing and I will also be listening to the word while working. I used to be slack in my studies but that’s not the case anymore.

If you’re experiencing more difficulty and darkness in life today you are not alone. The times are growing darker and we need to press into Jesus now more than ever before. Seek Him now while you can still find Him. Find your favorite power scriptures that inspire you and write or print them out! Put them in places where you’ll see them daily and remind yourself that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

"We Have no King but Caesar" John 19:15

This is what I hear in the background when I see how the Evangelicals keep justifying everything Donald Trump says and does. I know that scripture has to do with the Crucifixion of Jesus and not His birth (it’s Christmas eve 2019) but yet it fits with what’s going on today.

As we know President Trump is very upset because of an article written by magazine Christianity Today that called for Trumps removal. The article cited Trump’s “profoundly immoral” conduct in office among other things and called for his impeachment and removal from office.

Now the magazine has renewed it’s criticism as stated here in this Reuters article:

Christianity Today, the magazine founded by the late Reverend Billy Graham, renewed its criticism of President Donald Trump in a new editorial that cited his “misuses of power” and asked fellow Christians to examine their loyalty to him, days after a controversial editorial that called for his impeachment.

The 130,000-circulation magazine, which has 4.3 million monthly website viewers, in its editorial last week cited Trump’s “profoundly immoral” conduct in office, drawing immediate criticism from Trump and dozens of evangelical leaders.

But the magazine’s president, Timothy Dalrymple, wrote in the editorial, headlined “The Flag in the Whirlwind,” that evangelicals’ embrace of Trump means being tied to his “rampant immorality, greed, and corruption; his divisiveness and race-baiting; his cruelty and hostility to immigrants and refugees.”

“With profound love and respect,” Dalrymple said, “we ask our brothers and sisters in Christ to consider whether they have given to Caesar what belongs only to God: their unconditional loyalty.”

The editorial praised the Trump administration’s judicial appointment, “advocacy of life, family, and religious liberty.” But it said, “It is one thing to praise his accomplishments; it is another to excuse and deny his obvious misuses of power.

Dalrymple pledged to open up a “serious discussion about how our activity as Christians shapes our activity as citizens” in 2020. He declined to be interviewed until after the Christmas holiday.

Not to be outdone, nearly 200 evangelical leaders condemned the article by Christianity Today. In part their statement said that the magazine “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations,”. In other words these so called “leaders” don’t like it when their sin is laid bare for the world to see. A blind man could see how they’re compromising with the god of this world. In my opinion that’s one of the biggest problem the church has, spiritual blindness.

Their letter to the magazine continues; “We are, in fact, not ‘far-right’ evangelicals as characterized by the author,” the letter said. “Rather, we are Bible-believing Christians and patriotic Americans who are simply grateful that our president has sought our advice as his administration has advanced policies that protect the unborn, promote religious freedom, reform our criminal justice system, contribute to strong working families through paid family leave, protect the freedom of conscience, prioritize parental rights, and ensure that our foreign policy aligns with our values while making our world safer, including through our support of the State of Israel.”

Billboard in Detroit

As always it comes back to “support of the State of Israel” for these folks. They believe in the false doctrine of Israel first and the pre-trib rapture with a coming anti-christ. What they don’t (or do) realize is that the man they’re serving is the very same anti-christ they’ve been warning themselves about for decades.

By continuing to support Trump no matter what he says or does, the so called Evangelical leaders are saying “we have no king but Caesar” just as the Pharisees and their followers did at the crucifixion. Soon we will be coming into a time when disloyalty to Trump will be considered a crime. It’s not here yet but it’s coming, you can bet on it. Then these same ‘leaders” will send the thought police and their drones after us, the remnant who refuses to worship the beast or take his mark.

Something shifted in the spiritual realm as we went into the winter solstice this year, 2019. The other day it was dark at 10:30 am like we were going into a sunset. That was a manifestation of something that happened on the spiritual side of the ether. Stay ready at all times, especially spiritually. Jesus said there would be things coming upon the earth that would make mens hearts fail them (Luke 21:26) and I believe we will start seeing some supernatural things. Soon.

Prayed up and prepped up!

Satanic Cult Fears in UK after Animals Found Slaughtered, Churches Sprayed with 666

As we get closer to the end of this age the times are getting darker and rituals that were once cloaked in darkness are now coming to light. The Satanists aren’t hiding things anymore as everything Satanic is being normalized in society. What wouldn’t have been tolerated in the western world 20 years ago is now becoming accepted. As in the days of Noah…

From the Sun

MODERN-DAY Satanists are feared to be slaying animals in the New Forest in Hampshire after several sheep and cattle were stabbed to death there earlier this month.

Three cattle were found with stab wounds in the hamlet of Linwood and two sheep were fatally slashed and marked at Bramshaw village. Satanic symbols were also found daubed on Bramshaw Church.

One sheep was found dead with a cross and a pentagram, a symbol associated with magic, spray painted on to its body.

Judy Rudd, who has lived in the New Forest for 40 years, was out walking her two dogs in Bramshaw when she came across the dead sheep.

Mrs Rudd said: “It had purple and green aerosol symbols sprayed on it. It was a pentagram and a cross. It had been stabbed to death. The wounds were in the side of the body by the rib cage.

“It was very unpleasant… some people think it’s sinister.”

Her husband Julian added: “I don’t agree that it’s done to shock – you don’t go around knifing animals simply to shock people.

“It’s related to something other than simply a desire to injure animals – it’s either witchcraft or whatever. It’s rather worrying.”

We are in a spiritual war that is now manifesting itself in the real world. Arm yourself with God’s word everyday so you don’t lose hope and fall into despair. God bless,

Their Pride Will Be Their Downfall

From AP/ABC News

“He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority. These people are proud and arrogant, daring even to scoff at supernatural beings without so much as trembling. ” 2 Peter 2:10 NLT

That verse jumped out during my studies today. I was studying 2 Peter 2 which deals with false teachers and sexual immorality in the last days. There are comparisons with Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah and also with Noah prior to the flood. There are so many false teachers in the Christian world today it’s maddening. I see many being misled and deceived by these charlatans, primarily due to money and material things. The Joel Osteens of the world get people thinking that it’s all about THEM, that God lives to serve THEM, not the other way around. It’s become all about SELF which is what Satan specializes in. If you need proof, check out what Victoria Osteen said about doing things for yourself and not God right HERE.

It’s the same way with the LGTBQZWIDHRH or whatever it is today movement. It’s all about SELF and false PRIDE. Judge for yourselves what God means in 2 Peter 2:10 up above at your own peril. In other words I think God was pretty clear in that scripture. There are no grey areas in that verse. God will be very hard on those who pursue the LGTBQ lifestyle and the false pride that comes with it. God HATES pride and that’s one reason they keep harping on “Gay pride”. It mocks God and His plan for mankind and hurts God deeply which is why Satan loves sexual sin. Satan knows deep down he can’t win so he will do his best to lash out at God’s creation and make them suffer.

Don’t follow any of these people or their vain, false teachings. They live to deceive and to get God’s people off of the plan God has for them. Don’t be the “dog who returns to it’s vomit” (Proverbs 26:11) and return to the lusts and lies of this world. Remember your calling and reject these false teachers and with it any foolish pride.

College Students Give up Smartphones for 1 week, the Results Were Surprising

Can You Shut it off for a week?

Finally, something refreshing to write about our young people who are in college in the U.S. It’s amazing how addicted and out of touch society has become due to smartphones. Now here comes a story that shows you how much BETTER the students’ lives became once they got over the initial withdrawals. The story comes from CBS 2 in NYC .

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – They survived!

Nearly two dozen Adelphi University students made it a full week without their cell phones!

As CBS2 first told you last week, it was part of a college course intended to break the powerful addiction of smartphones.

CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff went back on Thursday as students were reunited with their beloved mobile devices.

It’s old school in Jacob Dannenberg’s dorm room – with an alarm clock to wake him.

Handwritten notes remind him an actual wristwatch to keep track of time.

No it wasn’t 1999, it was an Adelphi University course called “Life Unplugged.” where students did the unthinkable one week ago – handed over their smartphones.

“I’m freaking out, I could probably cry right now,” one student said.

It was a bold experiment to recognize today’s compulsive relationships with ever present devices.

Seven days later, “who’s excited they’re getting their phones back today?” Professor Donna Freitas asked.

Gone were the nerves and the shakes.

“Everything is perfect right now. I’m having a lot better relationships… it’s a stress free environment no pressure about social media,” Jacob Dannenberg said.

“I think it’s really refreshing and relaxing… I was able to fall asleep a lot easier,” student Adrianna Cigliano.

They managed to find their way, even without GPS for a week.

“I just had to take the same route everywhere,” one student joked.

They were also more productive.

“Doing homework was 100 percent easier. I got it done faster, I was in the zone,” Cigliano said.

Prof. Freitas says it’s important for everyone to assess their addiction.

“Are the conveniences worth it because the drawback are pretty significant,” Freitas said.

“The face that no one can focus, that my students can’t sleep… They feel bad about themselves because of social media, the list goes on and on.”

The sweet reunions went sour quickly as endless notifications piled up.

“Oh my God this is so bad!… I just want to shut it off now!” the Adelphi class said.

Students say they’re not quite breaking up with their phones, but promise the relationship will change.

“I want to keep that balance and figure out the healthy relationship that we deserve to have with our phones,” Cigliano added.

“My screen time is definitely going to go down and I’m going start to appreciate my surroundings more because usually I’m looking at my screen all the time,” Ashley Castillero said.

Students told CBS2 they look forward to living more in the moment, with their heads up more often, notifications off, and the “do not disturb” on.

Students were allowed to use a desktop computer or laptop during the experiment. They also made emergency communication plans with family.
