THE TRIBULATION OF THE UNJUST IN REVELATION CH 6 -22:
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
SAVING BELIEVERS IN NAME ONLY
QUESTION: Do you ever get the feeling that born again believers should try to focus more effort on so-called believers in name only instead of trying to reach “sinners”? Seems like an even more difficult task to me, but I ask because with the nearness of the rapture. I can’t imagine a more surprised, disappointed, and terrified group than they will be after the rapture.
ANSWER: Someone once said, “There is no greater obstacle to discovering the truth than the belief that you’ve already found it.” This is the biggest problem we face with believers in name only. They know who Jesus is and have some idea of what He has done, but they don’t know Him in the sense of having a relationship with Him.
They don’t realize that you can have a head full of knowledge about the Lord, but unless you have His Spirit in your heart, you’re in danger of standing at the door of the Kingdom and having Him turn you away, saying,
“I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.”
I think this is why so many movements of the Holy Spirit have begun outside of organized religion. The Lord said you can’t put new wine into old skins or sew a patch of new cloth onto an old garment (Matt. 9:16-17).
He was speaking of the difficulty in teaching the New Covenant to people who prided themselves on their knowledge of the Old Covenant, but He could have said the same thing about trying to teach believers in name only from the Church Age on the need to be born again.
More than anything else, believers in name only need our prayers that the Lord will open their hearts. Remember, we can confront people with the truth of the gospel, but only the Holy Spirit can convert them.
THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES
QUESTION: For a while now I’ve been pondering “the fullness of the Gentiles”. You have spoken on the differences between believers (the Body of Christ/the Church) as distinct from Jewish people and Gentile people who trust in Christ during the Tribulation. Since there will still be those two groups of people during this time, why do the Gentiles not figure into “the fullness” right through the Tribulation? Would not those Gentiles be counted as well in that “fullness”? And, the Rapture would then have nothing to do with this count?
ANSWER: The fullness of the Gentiles is from Romans 11:25, part of a passage by Paul about the end times redemption of Israel. It says.
“I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.”
It’s only one verse but it contains several important components.
The partial hardening of Israel is also called blindness and refers to a diminished capacity for mental discernment, or a dulled perception. This is the condition Jesus pronounced upon Israel when they failed to recognize Him as their Messiah (Luke 19:41-44).
The phrase full number (or fullness) refers to a specific number of gentiles who will “come in” before the partial hardening of Israel is removed. To “come in” means to arrive at a scheduled destination, as in “what time does your flight come in?”
The removal of this blindness begins when the people in Israel officially renew their Old Testament relationship with God and need a Temple again. This will mark the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week and according to Paul will happen after the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. I think the battle foretold in Ezekiel 38-39 will prompt this. Ezekiel 39:22 tells us,
“From that day forward the House of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God.”
That tells us the phrase fullness (full number) of the Gentiles doesn’t mean each and every Gentile, but only those who are part of a group that will arrive at its scheduled destination before the blindness is lifted. This is a reference to the rapture of the Church, which will contain a specific number of members. When that full number has been reached, we’ll be taken from earth to our place in “my Father’s house” to be with the Lord (John 14:1-3).
After the Church is gone, Israel’s spiritual eyes will begin to open, at first only so far as to bring them back into their Old Covenant relationship. That’s why they’ll need a Temple. Then toward the end of Daniel’s 70th Week the Lord will pour out His Spirit of grace and supplication and they’ll finally recognize their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10).
In Acts 15:13-18 we see the same sequence of events. First the Lord will take (carry away) from the Gentiles a people for Himself (the Church). Then David’s fallen tabernacle (the Temple) will be rebuilt. Then the remnant of men, both Jew and Gentile, will have one last chance to seek Him.

TRIBULATION IS COMING AND THE REMOVAL OF THE CHURCH IS IMMINENT.
so won’t you accept Jesus now and be removed from that event and live forever with Jesus in the Family of God?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel.
The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: 2 “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.
Reports on the upcoming publication of the Trump peace initiative have whipped Jordan into a frenzy. One of the issues troubling Jordan, in particular, is the change in its traditional status on the Temple Mount as Guardian of the Holy Sites sacred to Islam.
Instead, there will be a general Arab-Islamic guardian, meaning that Saudi Arabia will replace Jordan as the true guardian of the sites holy to Islam. From the historical point of view, after the Hashemites were pushed out as the guardians of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, they will now have to come to terms with losing their responsibility for the Al-Aqsa mosque.
Jordanian spokesmen have expressed themselves harshly on this issue, saying that this is a red line and Jordan will reconsider all of its regional alliances as a result.
Though they have not given any details, developments behind the scene with regard to the management of the Waqf should be noted. At first, Jordan came to an agreement with Mahmoud Abbas about a change in the administration of the Waqf and the inclusion of Fatah personnel to it. This was a signal to Saudi Arabia that Jordan and Mahmoud Abbas are the landlords of the mosques, and they will not allow themselves to be pushed out.
However, when it seemed that Jordan and the PLO had created a united front against Saudi Arabia, both fresh partners began to clash over who would actually lead the new Waqf administration.
Jordan saw to it that the addition of senior Fatah officials would not violate Jordan’s practical control of the council, but the PLO in Ramallah thought differently. Sources in east Jerusalem report an all-out war is under way over the leadership of the new council.
Ramallah wants to appoint Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Hussein, an Abbas loyalist, to lead the council. Jordan is completely opposed, and the first expression of a change of partnership was its offer to a former foe, Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, to lead the council. Sheikh Ekrima was persona non grata in Jordan, but, for the first time in years, he was invited to talks there and was offered the job.
Sources revealed that when Ramallah found out, Tanzim-Fatah forces threatened Sheikh Ekrima. He informed the Jordanians that he had been threatened, preventing him from taking up their offer. After a brief honeymoon, Jordan and Ramallah are again divided over Jerusalem.
Before the recent summit in Tunis, King Abdullah took an interesting step. He met with King Hassan II of Morocco, who is also from the Hashemite dynasty, in other words from the family of Sharifs [Guardians] that claim descent from the prophet Mohammed.
Morocco is also currently fighting Wahhabist elements who reject Islamic religious rites at holy sites followed locally in the country. It attributes this pressure to Saudi Arabia, and relations between Morocco and the Saudis have chilled a great deal. From this, the two Hashemite kings have identified a joint interest and are uniting against what they attribute to the Trump’s plan and Saudi Arabia’s strong influence over the design of the U.S. plan.
In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News, a German news site, explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”
In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or “migrant”) identity of the destroyers is leaked, the desecraters are then presented as suffering from mental health issues.
“Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.”—PI News, March 24, 2019
Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched.
In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. This represents a 17% increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered — meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.
Among some of the recent desecrations in France, the following took place in just February and March:
Vandals plundered Notre-Dame des Enfants Church in Nîmes and used human excrement to draw a crossthere; consecrated bread was found thrown outside among garbage.
The Saint-Nicolas Church in Houilles was vandalizedon three separate occasions in February; a 19th century statue of the Virgin Mary, regarded as “irreparable,” was “completely pulverized,” said a clergyman; and a hanging cross was thrown to the floor.
Vandals desecrated and smashed crossesand statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned.
Arsonists torchedthe Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17.
Similar reports are coming out of Germany. Four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”
Who is primarily behind these ongoing and increasing attacks on churches in Europe? The same German report offers a hint: “Crosses are broken, altars smashed, Bibles set on fire, baptismal fonts overturned, and the church doors smeared with Islamic expressions like ‘Allahu Akbar.’”
Another German report from November 11, 2017 noted that in the Alps and Bavaria alone, around 200 churches were attacked and many crosses broken: “Police are currently dealing with church desecrations again and again. The perpetrators are often youthful rioters with a migration background.” Elsewhere they are described as “young Islamists.”
Sometimes, sadly, in European regions with large Muslim populations, there seems to be a concomitant rise in attacks on churches and Christian symbols. Before Christmas 2016, in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, where more than a million Muslims reside, some 50 public Christian statues(including those of Jesus) were beheaded and crucifixes broken.
In 2016, following the arrival in Germany of another million mostly Muslim migrants, a local newspaper reported that in the town of Dülmen, “’not a day goes by’ without attacks on religious statues in the town of less than 50,000 people, and the immediate surrounding area.”
In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or “migrant”) identity of the destroyers is leaked, the perpetrators are then presented as suffering from mental health issues. As the recent PI-News reportsays:
“Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.”
So now it’s the 31st of October. Does anyone, whether they’re a Brexiteer or Remainer, seriously believe that Britain will have exited the EU by the latest ‘deadline’ agreed by Europe?
Theresa May, lest we forget, assured us repeatedly that Britain would be leaving the EU on 29th March 2019. Then when that didn’t happen she said it would be by June 30th. Now she has agreed to an extension until Halloween. How appropriate, because the whole thing has turned into Nightmare on Downing Street.
It needn’t have been such a horror movie. The basic problem has been that while the public (17.4m of them) voted Leave, the political Establishment has been largely in favour of Remain.
That Establishment includes the Prime Minister who supported Britain staying in the EU in 2016, albeit from behind the sofa. As I tweeted earlier in the week, you could say that she has handled Brexit disastrously. But that’s only if you accept the premise she wanted the UK to leave. If her aim was to sabotage Brexit, while appearing to be in favour, you’d have to admit that she’s played an absolute blinder.
To get a good deal from the EU it was common sense that the government had to prepare properly for a No Deal. Instead Mrs May signed up to a ‘Withdrawal Agreement’ that involved the UK paying the EU £39bn. Not even John Cleese had to pay that much to his ex-wives.
Not surprisingly, Brexiteers found it hard to vote for the Agreement. Some even said it was worse than staying in the EU. They had a point.
May tried three times to get her not very good ‘deal’ through Parliament and three times she failed. She should, had she really been serious about delivering Brexit, have said that after this failure Britain would leave without a deal. That would, I believe have led to movement from Brussels.
That’s because European business — and in particular German manufacturing, has been desperate to avoid a No Deal Brexit. You don’t have to be an Emeritus Professor of Economics at Oxford University to understand why.
The UK had an overall trade deficit of £67bn with the EU in 2017. The deficit on trade in goods was a jaw-dropping £95bn. In other words EU countries exported £95bn more in goods to the UK than the UK exported to them. Britain’s biggest deficit is with Germany. In 2017, the German trade surplus with Britain stood at £21bn.
The prospect of unfettered EU/German access to the lucrative UK market changing in any way was causing great, and understandable, alarm in boardrooms across the continent. May could have used this concern to Britain’s advantage to extract more concessions. She chose not to, and threw her trump card away. Whatever you do, make sure Theresa’s never your partner in a game of Whist.
The fault though is not just hers. Cabinet colleagues who made it clear they opposed a ‘No Deal’ Brexit are also culpable. So too, as I noted here, are the ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’ who celebrated far too early.
The same people who told us, quite correctly, that the Establishment would do everything they could to keep us in the EU, rather naively seemed to believe that the referendum result would be the end of the matter. As if. They were celebrating when they should have been forming Brexit Watch Committees.
You could stay that Brexit was doomed the moment it was decided that MPs, far more pro-EU than the general population, would have the final say. As I argued in a previous column, rather than enhancing democracy in Britain, Parliament actually curbs it. It’s there to subvert or neuter public opinion; not to represent it.
We see this on issue after issue, not just Brexit.
If we consider who was against Britain leaving the EU, it’s no great surprise we are where we are today, nearly three years after the referendum.
While a small section of the business/financial elites wanted us to Leave, the people who ‘really matter’ supported the maintenance of the status quo. I listed them in November. ‘The giants of US finance capital. Billionaire capitalists like Sir Richard Branson, George Soros and Lord Jacob Rothschild. 1280 ‘business leaders’- including directors of 51 FTSE100 companies. 100 ‘University leaders’. The Bank of England. The biggest trades unions. The EU. NATO. Sir Humphrey Appleby and prominent members of the legal profession.’
Leave meanwhile had some right-wing ‘Empire Loyalist’ Tories, some Labour MPs, The Communist Party, a divided UKIP, and that guy who owns Weatherspoons. It was hardly an even fight, was it?
Then there’s the social demographic of Leave/Remain supporters. Social classes A and B, the ones most represented in the Establishment, and the ones with the most clout within the system, voted 59% to remain, while classes D and E backed Leave by 64%.
If it had been the other way round, does anyone seriously doubt we’d have been out of the EU by now?
Indeed an analysis of class and economic power not only explains why Brexit hasn’t happened yet, but also why it is unlikely to happen, barring a political revolution.
That ‘revolution’ would mean moving away from the current model of Parliamentary ‘democracy’, through which powerful interest groups can quite easily subvert majority opinion, to something more direct and more democratic.
If one good thing comes from the failure to deliver Brexit, it’s that it will hopefully get people to question the way we do politics in Britain. How we hand over, very meekly, our democratic rights to those who then take great delight in ignoring us.
In the words of the late, great Charles de Gaulle, the Brexit debacle has shown us that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians. Particularly those who keep breaking their promises like Theresa May.
Health freedom alert: Britain to ban everyone from privately discussing vaccine ingredients, side effects and damage to children
Health freedom alert: Britain to ban everyone from privately discussing vaccine ingredients, side effects and damage to children by: Lance D Johnson for Natural News
At the turn of the century, the internet became one of humanity’s greatest gifts, a source of personal freedom and power. The internet unleashed endless opportunities for communication, commerce, and information sharing. Not only did the internet decentralize news, but it offered a platform for anyone to create and speak freely.
Two decades later, the internet has become a contentious place, with Tech giants, corporations, political activists, and governments all clamoring to control the flow of information, to stifle free speech, and to use personal data to exploit consumer’s purchasing habits and voting preferences.
Facebook has already implemented a plan to weed out information that is critical of pharmaceutical companies and their vaccine policies. For example, groups on Facebook may share information on measles, but they cannot share information on vaccine adverse events because this might cause “vaccine hesitancy.”
“Hate speech” policies are now used to censor “dangerous” ideas – ideas that certain people just don’t agree with. Information that criticizes the Democrat party is now deemed “disinfo” from Russia, and can be censored out of social media using filters and algorithms. The Russia collusion hoax has led Twitter to shadow ban conservative ideas, as they claim to “protect American democracy” from foreign interference.
Did you speak out about drugs and human trafficking along the Mexican border? You could be deemed racist and have your social media accounts taken down. Did you criticize shariah law online? The Southern Poverty Law Center may work to have you arrested. (Related: Citizen journalist Tommy Robinson jailed under secret order from U.K. government; total media blackout issued to protect Muslim pedophiles.)
In Great Britain, online speech is about to become extremely more regulated. It’s like history is repeating itself. The British government hopes to appoint an internet safety czar to “monitor” Facebook, Twitter, and Google to ensure “public safety.” The motivation behind the plan is to “ensure public safety,” not to protect the right of the citizens to speak freely. Soon, you won’t be able to express yourself or voice concerns if someone in authority deems that your speech is abusive, insulting, distressing, indecent, racist, seditious, obscene, defamatory, incites religious hatred, may cause a breach of the peace, or is scandalous to a court.
According to Britain’s new plan, a government czar will ensure that social media companies do the following:
Stop cyber bullying on their platforms
Stop the incitement of violence and spread of violent content
Block children’s access to inappropriate material
Block content that encourages self harm or suicide
Stop child exploitation and abuse content
Stop the spread of disinformation and fake news
This brings up obvious questions:
Who decides what violent content is? Are historical depictions of war to be erased from the internet? What about medical experimentation of prisoners and children? What about gruesome abortion procedures and testimonies about medical error and vaccine damage?
Who decides what is disinformation and fake news? Does this include information that the people in charge don’t agree with or aren’t educated about? By banning “fake news,” the government becomes a propaganda ministry.
Who decides what constitutes cyber bullying? Does this include bans on information that someone or some group might find offensive? The easily offended will be validated and any unsettling truths will be taken offline.
Instead of working to ensure that freedom of speech is not trampled by Tech giants, the British government is essentially working with them to destroy dissent, to squelch historical perspective, to alienate certain political ideas, to cover up the harms of vaccines and other medical experiments. Government czars and the engineers of Big Tech are colluding to stifle free speech, not protect individual rights. Their coordinated efforts will be abused to stop the flow of information on vaccine dangers, among other topics that cannot be discussed such as natural cancer cures. All this is being done in the name of public “safety” but so often throughout history, promises of “safety” are used to take away personal liberties. This situation will be no different.
George Orwell Identifies the Main Enemy of the Free Press: It’s the “Intellectual Cowardice” of the Press Itself
Many have exhausted themselves in asking, what makes it so hard for journalists to tell the truth with “clarity and moral force”? Answers range from the conspiratorial—journalists and editors are bought off or coerced—to the mundane: they normalize aberrant behavior in order to relieve cognitive dissonance and maintain a comfortable status quo. While the former explanation can’t be dismissed out of hand in the sense that most journalists ultimately work for media megaconglomerates with their own vested interests, the latter is just as often offered by critics like NYU’s Jay Rosen.
Established journalists “want things to be normal,” writes Rosen, which includes preserving access to high-level sources. The press maintains a pretense to objectivity and even-handedness, even when doing so avoids obvious truths about the mendacity of their subjects. Mainstream journalists place “protecting themselves against criticism,” Rosen wrote in 2016, “before serving their readers. This is troubling because that kind of self-protection has far less legitimacy than the duties of journalism, especially when the criticism itself is barely valid.”
Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness,” not by government agents, but by a critical backlash aimed at preserving a sense of “normalcy” at all costs.
“If liberty means anything at all,” Orwell concludes, “it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
ASSANGE DUMPS ALL WIKILEAKS FILES
This is absolutely incredible and for those who actually do investigative journalism, this is going to be source material for possibly years to come. As co-founder of Wikileaks Julian Assange was arrested and dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, he stated the files would be dumped, and unlike the state controlled media, you could bank on him following through with what he said.
Assange had made it known this was coming as a result of his arrest. Now, once again, he’s made good on his word in the face of the US government’s threats to criminalize him for something that other press and publishers do all the time.
Harper’s reminds us:
Since Assange has already published the leaks in question, he obviously cannot be stopped from publishing them now; all the government can do is prosecute him criminally for obtaining or publishing the leaks in the first place. To date, there never has been a criminal prosecution for this type of behavior. Obama’s Justice Department ultimately concluded that a prosecution of Assange would damage the First Amendment. Their decision effectively meant that Assange was entitled to the same constitutional protections given reporters. (A Washington Post story about this decision quoted Obama officials who referred to the “New York Times problem”—i.e., the fact that any precedent set with respect to Assange could be applied to traditional journalistic entities.)
Trump’s Justice Department has reversed course on this decision. When Jeff Sessions first came into office as attorney general, he said that one of his top priorities would be going after Assange. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo—then the director of the CIA—said, “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state, hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”
James C. Goodale actually presents a good case for why Julian Assange deserves First Amendment protections. He is a journalist who publishes documents so that the truth will come out. People should appreciate that, including state-controlled useful idiots who oppose what he does. Yet, he is a publisher.
Given the threat the Justice Department’s actions against Assange pose to the First Amendment, why haven’t more journalists, press organizations, and editorial boards jumped in to support him? Principally it is because journalists dislike what he is doing; they don’t believe he is a “real” journalist and therefore do not see him as entitled to the same protections they enjoy.
Writing in U.S. News and World Report, for example, Susan Milligan says, “[Journalism] requires research, balance and most of all judgment. . . . Dumping documents—some of them classified—onto a website does not make anyone a journalist.” Add to this my own experience of when I was attacked several years ago by a howling mob of A-list journalists led by the late Morley Safer at a party (for my own book) where I said Assange, as a reporter, was entitled to First Amendment rights. “He is just a data dumper,” I was told—and most everyone there agreed.
But he’s not just a data dumper. He edited the Manning leaks initially, holding back some material. He may have done the same thing with his other leaks, including the Vault 7 releases. For better or for worse he seeks out information to be published on his website the way other journalists do for their publications. He is a publisher and is entitled to the same First Amendment protections as any other. Nonetheless, in the eyes of establishment journalists he remains a dumper, as well as a rapist, a liar, a thief, and a Russian agent.
One wonders whether the real reason journalists will not support Assange is that they simply don’t get it. They don’t understand how a successful prosecution of Assange would threaten their ability to report. I would suggest that the focus of the mainstream press should not be on whether Assange meets the usual definition of a journalist or whether they approve of what he does. That’s not the point. The point is that he carries out the functions of a journalist, has First Amendment protections (as they do), and should not be prosecuted for what he does. If he is, we are all worse off for it.
This is exactly right.
Additionally, as Matt Agorist reported on the book that Assange was holding when arrested and why it is important.
Vidal was one of the first public figures to question the motives and wisdom of Lincoln—and he was lambasted for it. Despite bipartisan attacks on all fronts for his critical skepticism of the United States, Vidal’s six-volume “American Chronicle” series of historical novels about the United States became best sellers.
As the years went on, Vidal became outspoken about the rise of the military industrial complex and predicted the very situation we find ourselves in today.
“USA Belongs To A Handful Of Men Who Also Control The Media. Look At General Electric. It Produces Nuclear Weapons For The Pentagon And Also Owns The NBC News Cable Channel, Which Is A Very Sophisticated Censure Apparatus, Intrinsic To The System. It’s Genius. It’s Like An Electronic Cage Around The Nation Which Blocks Information From Getting Through.” ~ Gore Vidal
“It Doesn’t Actually Make Any Difference Whether The President Is Republican Or Democrat. The Genius Of The American Ruling Class Is That It Has Been Able To Make The People Think That They Have Had Something To Do With The Electing Of Presidents For 200 Years When They’ve Had Absolutely Nothing To Say About The Candidates Or The Policies Or The Way The Country Is Run.” ~ Gore Vidal
Many of these documents that Wikileaks has dumped have exposed the crimes of our own government, individuals inside it and other governments as well.
If the people could only see the tyranny they are under, they would recognize that he has provided gifts of truth that could be used to topple the criminals in DC.
As Assange reminded people, “IF WARS CAN BE STARTED BY LIES, THEY CAN BE STOPPED WITH THE TRUTH.”
OPINION (Charisma) – As Christians, we hold fast to the power of God’s love. It is not only a primary attribute of God, but is central to our witness and testimony. However, as we seek to model something powerful to the world that separates us from all others, we need to look again at what the Scripture says is primary. As we pray for God’s tangible presence to move and be seen in our land, I believe there is an attribute even more crucial to our lives and witness than God’s love.

OPINION (Charisma) – In Kenyan churches, the Antichrist is a frequent sermon subject, one that often serves to feed controversial end-time conspiracy theories. Those fears of the apocalyptic figure, a seven-headed beast that rises from the sea in the New Testament Book of Revelation, are colliding with a new government effort to assign Kenyans a personal identification number. Clerics are alleging the new ID number will brand their flocks with 666, the biblical mark of the beast.
