Coming Counterfit Muslim Messiah Is Anti-Christ

Common Sense Commentary:   1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Lucifer was the original COUNTERFEIT. He conspired to dethrone Jehovah God and take God's place as God (Isaiah 14:12-15). After his fall, Lucifer (Satan) presented Adam and Eve with a counterfeit promise. He has cleverly counterfeited every Holy thing of God. He has a counterfeit temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.  Mohamed is a counterfeit prophet.  The Koran is a counterfeit Bible.  He has counterfeit Christians, counterfeit churches, counterfeit Holy Spirit, and a counterfeit Messiah.  The Muslim Messiah's title is Mahdi. Christians believe the Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ, came 2000 years ago and is coming again soon. The Muslims even have a counterfeit coming of their "messiah" Mahdi, the 12th Imam. That counterfeit, soon coming, Muslim messiah, is the prophesied Anti-Christ, God's Word warned us about in the Bible. The following article from WND, and Muslim video, addresses this subject.

Iran preparing Mahdi's Special Forces

Army of operatives planning for terror, destruction of the West

The Quds Forces, a special Iranian unit of thousands of operatives tasked with exporting Iran’s Islamic revolution, are being told to step up preparations for terrorism for the coming of the last Islamic messiah and the destruction of the West.
Ali Saeedi, the Iranian supreme leader’s representative to the Revolutionary Guards, emphasized during a Friday sermon in Tehran that the Islamic republic must directly confront America so that the necessary environment is created for the reappearance of Mahdi, the Shiite’s 12th imam, who will kill all infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.“In three points of history, God directly confronts the will of unruly humans in which, of course, the Right will overcome the False,” Saeedi said, according to the Sepah News, the Guards’ official publication. “The first point in history was during the era of pharaoh, the second era was Bani Abbas, and the third is our current era in which it seems that God has willed us to enlighten the world with the coming of Imam Mahdi.”
Saeedi, “Many of the signs [necessary] for the coming have taken place during the previous years; however, the main sign will take place right before the coming.”
There are five levels of readiness that have to be prepared for the coming, he said: “Individual readiness, the readiness for creating the environment, systematic readiness, the readiness in the region and the international readiness. This means Occupy Wall Street must take place, the Americans must lose hope with the Democratic Party and others, and lose faith in the U.N., while at the same time the unraveling in the Middle East, which was not ripe before, must have taken place before the coming.”
This is the first time a high-ranking Iranian official has stated on the record that the Quds Forces are not only involved in the region, but also internationally for a final confrontation with the West.
“The Revolutionary Guards are one vehicle for preparation for the coming, and in the current Islamic Awakening [the Arab Spring] in the region and on international arena, the Quds Forces play a major role in preparing the readiness of the human force needed for such an event,” Saeedi said. “The chief commander of the Guards and the supreme leader’s representative are tasked for preparing the individual readiness, regional readiness as well as international readiness for the coming.”
In another Guards’ weekly publication, Sobhe Sadegh, a front-page analysis explains that the opening of Iran’s geopolitics and the empowerment of its Islamic power are a reality in which Iran’s influence has expanded not only in the region, but also in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Asia and even in Europe and America.
As was the fall of socialism and the Eastern bloc, the analysis promises, so will be the fall of the capitalism and liberal democracy.
The analysis refers to the statements of the founder of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini:
  • “I say with all certainty that the 21st century will be the century of Islam.”
  • “I say with all certainty that Islam will conquer all key entrenchments of the world.”
  • “I say with all certainty that Islam will defeat all world powers.”
  • “I say with all certainty that the 21st century is the century where the oppressed will be victorious over the oppressors.”

While the Quds Forces have recently expanded their operations in shipment of explosives to Latin America, Africa and other places in the world, and at the same time have put terror cells on high alert for terrorist acts, the Islamic regime in Iran has expanded its nuclear program in which over 11,000 centrifuges are now running at two facilities, increasing its enriched uranium stock.
As of the last report in May by the IAEA, Iran had enough enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs, and despite all negotiations and recent sanctions, the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, announced days ago that there will be no turning back from the nuclear path.
Reza Kahlili translated this Iranian video about Islamic prophecies of a coming messiah and the destruction of Israel:

He is a senior Fellow with EMPact America, a member of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and teaches at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA).

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

The Infamous Interview That Shook The World

Liberal Media Fabricate Another ‘Scandal’  From Gary North's Godfather Politics

In the media world, saying you believe in something is tantamount to stating unequivocally that you despise anything and anyone that disagrees with you. If you’re pro-life, then you must hate women. If you’re a fiscal conservative, then you must hate seniors because you want to get rid of their social security. If you believe in traditional marriage, then you’re a homophobe. Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy has been taking heat from the left for some comments he made presumably about homosexual marriage. The thing is, he didn’t actually say anything about homosexual marriage. Cathy only stated his beliefs about traditional family and marriage. Leave it to the media to try to make a story out of nothing.
The original interview that the media quote as being responsible for all these attacks and boycotts by the left was given by Ken Coleman on Ken’s radio show that aired on Father’s Day. The context of the infamous quote by Mr. Cathy in which he states that our culture is “inviting God’s judgment” wasn’t even about homosexual marriage. In fact, the subject of homosexual marriage never even came up during the entire interview. Ken’s question to Dan was regarding the growing problem of “fatherlessness” in our society today.
Since the interview was given on Father’s Day, the emphasis was on fathers. The radio host chose to feature Dan Cathy, a father of two and prominent Christian businessman who has honored his own father and has followed in his footsteps. Mr. Coleman simply asked Dan to comment on our “fatherless” society and what could be done to solve the problem. Dan elaborated on how emotionally detrimental it can be when the father or mother is absent from the family and how fatherless children do not get the benefit of the balance between both parents. He mentioned an “essential, emotional DNA” that we get as a result of having a balanced family.

The media referenced another interview published by the Baptist Press where Cathy was quoted as saying, “Guilty as charged” in his defense of biblical marriage. Again, the subject of homosexual marriage never came up. Cathy was only commenting on what the interviewer stated, namely that some have been critical of Chick-fil-A’s stance on the traditional family.
Why do we even pretend that the media have any credibility whatsoever?

Here’s the actual phone interview excerpt from the Ken Coleman Show that aired on Father’s Day:
Ken Coleman: As you look at the crisis of fatherlessness that we have in this country — I wanted you to weigh in on that. I think it’s important for us to hear from you. What can we be doing as a country to be focusing on this growing problem?
Dan Cathy: As an employer first off, just from that perspective, I see it’s a real crisis in the sense that there is a certain amount of emotional DNA – there’s physical DNA obviously that comes from the dad and also from the mom – but beyond that, there’s some essential emotional DNA that God intended for us to get from a mother and a dad that we observe over life as children and infancy and growing up that we can only get from our dad, and we only get it from our mom, and we’re to get it in a home dynamic environment where they’re interrelating together to build the stability and the self-esteem that God wants us to have to get through our teenage years. Now, when we don’t have one side or the other, you know, I just have to tell you, I think we’re just emotionally handicapped. It’s doesn’t mean we can’t survive and have a happy life, but it means we’re going to have some odds stacked against us, and hopefully there could be somebody that intervenes to help make that up for us. But to have so many people today that are growing up in homes where they don’t have a mom and dad – I’ll tell you, as an employer, it makes it that much more difficult for us because we sometimes actually have to have a parenting role. As it relates to society in general, I think we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him as say, “We know better than You as to what constitutes a marriage,” and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude — to think that we would — the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about.
Not one mention of “gay” marriage — only the effect of a fatherless family on children.

Hey, Go down to Chick-fil-A today or tomorrow and get a couple of sandwiches.RB

Cuba Searching For It's National Soul

Common Sense Commentary:   "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision ." Joel 3:14.  In this 2000th   Millennium (plus 12 years) since Christ, Cuba ... and the entire world is searching for national identity.  Like no other time in history, the whole world is in flux. Time and technology seem to be dragging us into the future at warp speed. Suddenly, everything is changing and everyone on earth is seeing it happen before our very eyes. World events are scrambling nations and continents and people together with their religions, politics, traditions and livelihood.  Cuba is a small microcosm or example of what is a
pseudo "new age, globalization, world order, and uniting of nations".  Literally everything is changing .... morals, politics, religion, education, technology, science, logistics, demographics .... people.  Everything but God and the faith of a few.

It has never been more important for those few, God's people, true believers, to seek God's "purpose" in their lives, find it, do it, and don't quit or give up ... ever.  If we are to have the courage, faith and determination to walk with Christ, we must never forget that "... we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Rom.8:28).  "Good" primarily means long term outcome, not necessarily today.  By "long term", I mean  in the future, maybe tomorrow, next year, 20 years, a life-time or possibly not until judgement day. But, it is certain that "all things" whether crisis, sickness, persecution, loss or the opposite of those negatives, will eventually be proven to have benefited those who truly "love God" and "who are the called according to his purpose."  But it is according to HIS purpose not ours.  We may not know why some things happen to us but His word reassures us that, "...Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory". 2Cor.4:17.
When I look back on my own life, it is clear to me that everything that ever happened to me has worked together for my "good" already, or in a very few of those things will, I am certain, in time or eternity.  The most difficult experiences in my life, now appear to me to be the stepping stones of progress and growth on my life's journey.

I'm sure that we all have heard repeated Rahm Emanuel's (Obama's Chief Of Staff, now Mayor of Chicago) statement ... "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste".    Conservatives have jumped on that statement.  He explained his meaning... "And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."  I am not critical of what he said because it is true.  The problem with what he said is, his idea of "doing things you could not do before" is the same as Obama's.  My point is, in these times of "serious crisis" and "change", someone or some group will affect the direction their city, state and nation turns. Some one or some group will determine which way the United States will turn.  This moment in our country is a pivot point of change.  All nations are about to enter a time of radical change.  If the America we love is to turn in a right, new direction, it is up to us Christians to be that influence.... if America ever turns back to God.  This will not be the case if you and I are not seeking God's "purpose" in prayer and by our spiritual actions.

What is happening in Cuba is actually happening all over the earth.  The writer of the following two paragraphs examines the sensitive teeter tottering of Cuba's heart, identity or soul and which way it will turn at this critical moment in it's history. Christians could very well be the deciding factor in Cuba and in the U.S.  If we will.

The following is a two paragraph excerpt from World Net Daily

Cuba searches for national soul

No longer controlled by global 'sugar daddies,' island enters '21st century identity crisis'

Jaime Ortega, the well-known Catholic cardinal towering over the Church in Havana, is a key figure holding Cuban society together and moving it forward into a new paradigm. He has access to top leaders in Cuba, including el jefe Raul Castro. But only one in 20 Cuban Catholics is an ardent churchgoer who uses the Bible as a guide to life. Many are social or cultural Christians for the purposes of establishing a social identity or celebrating various festivals. There are Cubans who see all religion as merely “guilt with different holidays.” Still, Cuban Catholics are a potent force because roughly 66 percent of Cubans have been formally and ritually baptized into the Church. Events in Poland under Solidarity have not been lost on Cuba’s elites, nor has the role of evangelical Christians in overthrowing and efficiently executing Nicolae Ceausescu in Romania. Cuba’s top leaders understand Christians are difficult to control because of their long-term view of eternity, a willingness to die for something greater than themselves, disdain for worshiping the state, adherence to the sanctity of life as well as opposition to abortion, drugs and other vices that cause various addictions and enslavement and destroy both human and spiritual potential. In the past, Christians in Cuba could be sent to camps – but no longer.

If change does come to Cuba – political, economic, moral, spiritual, technological – the Catholic and evangelical churches will provide key linkages comforting Cuba’s communist elites that such change is to be embraced and not feared, and that there will be a place for them in “The New Cuba” free of recrimination, blame and demonization. The Cuban Communist Party itself is the battleground where this war will be fought and won or lost for the sake of ordinary Cubans. 

Verses of assurance and challenge:

"And he (God) said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is make perfect in weakness.  Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmitives, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2Cor.12:9. 

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. But rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings." 1 Pet.4:12.

"...These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Rev.7:13-14.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Rev.21:4.  Amen, RB

Democrat, Republican, Independent. Why The Difference

Common Sense Commentary: What caused the vast difference in the large U.S. cities?
Why is the northern U.S. mostly Liberal, while the south is more Conservative?  Why is the left coast more Liberal than the east coast? Why are nations, cities and people so uniquely different .... especially politically and religiously?  In my opinion, the difference is inherited genes/DNA and their environment, as influenced by their families and local history, but mostly their personal choices based on the way they  believe and think. 

Like the human brain, every nation and family seems to have two, somewhat opposite, hemispheres, left and right.  One side is more rational, logical, and analytical in it's conclusions and decisions.  The other side is more visual, intuitive and random in it's conclusions and decisions. But, of course, some brains, countries and families are more or less balanced between the two, left and right.

To understand who or what is which, one must also consider the optional factors of outside influence.  In a person, those would be family, friends, church, teachers, city, nation and, of course, God and Satan; From whom a person freely accepts or rejects influence. 

The varying influential quotient of a city, state or nation would depend on the founders and general historical and moral environment of the place.  Is it farm-country, sea-coast, desert, a large city or small?  is it a politically corrupt city or state?  Chicago has a history of corruption.  Al Capone, one man, had a grip on the politics and police there, and left it with a tendency to corruption which still exists today.  it was known as, "The city Billy Sunday could not shut down" (1862-1935). In the final analysis, it is what the majority of the people there accepted.

Other differences of historical influence exist in every other large city in the world; and in every country, for that matter.  Our Christian, founding fathers and the Constitution they devised had immense influence on America for 200 years and remnants of freedom and Christianity still survive today.  But all nations rise and eventually fall. Again, in the final analysis, it is what the majority of the people here accept.

 It was mostly emigrants who settled New York.  Mostly independent, self reliant types settled Texas.  Bugsy Segal's influence is stamped on Las Vegas and so on.

All of the above is in general and my opinion.  Only God is absolute.  We change but God remains the same. "....Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever."
Our Constitution and Freedoms are hanging by a thread today.  A few votes to the left or right, in November, will determine the destiny of America. Will God deliver us?  Not if God's people do not turn to Him and do all in their power to make the difference. RB

Liberals Have Sown The Seed Of Their Own Extinction

Common Sense Commentary: Or maybe it is the lack of Liberal seed...

Why Liberals Will Become Extinct

What do the destruction of the traditional family, abortion-on-demand, homosexual rights, and the sexual revolution have in common? Aside from being pet projects of the liberal agenda, they are also driving the biggest (and least publicized) crisis of Western civilization: below replacement fertility rates. A fairly recent documentary film, Demographic Winter, outlines the causes and civilization-destroying effects of the precipitous downturn in fertility among Western nations.
Though liberals like to talk about the “over-population” problem in the world, it turns out that the recent global population boom has coincided with a severe reduction in global fertility. This means that the global population is larger because people are living longer, not because new humans are being born in record numbers. In fact, most industrialized countries (including almost all of Europe, the United States, Russia, China, and Japan) have fertility rates below replacement level (2.1 children per woman).
Our populations are aging, and the economic and social effects of this barrenness are starting to take their toll. Without population growth in the most crucial demographic—young workers and dependent children—economies grind to a hault as the liabilities of retirees exceed the productive capacity of the dwindling workforce and the market for new goods decreases. And that is exactly what has happened. It has gotten so bad in Russia and Sweden, that civil governments in those countries are paying families to have children. And these policies themselves are failing.
One of the most startling features of the film is the fact that its interviewees all point to one factor that could turn the global crisis around: a return to traditional values and traditional families. The interviewees (mostly sociologists and government officials from various countries) do not approach the problem from a religious perspective. Most of them seem almost embarrassed that their beloved science has driven them to conclusions that are far from politically correct. One of the sociologists, Phil Longman, a Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New American Foundation, says explicitly:
If it helps, just so you know where I’m coming from—I’m not churched. I work for a progressive secular thinktank. Right. And you can say this in your documentary. . . . This is not a faith-based analysis. This is an analysis that may eventually bring me to faith, but it’s not driven by faith. It just turns out… this is where the facts take you.
After all is said and done, liberals can’t win. Secular humanists kill their children or don’t have any. Broken families ruin their children. Homosexuals can’t have children. According to the laws of natural selection, liberalism cannot survive. It is not fit to survive. In fact, believing in the liberal agenda is a veritable survival disadvantage.
Liberals seem like they are winning much of the time. But even when they win, they lose. The accomplishment of their agenda is the very tool of their extinction. As Longman says elsewhere:
If people are not having enough children as a whole to replace the population, does that imply eventual human extinction? I think the answer actually is no. Because there are still children being born. It’s just that they’re disproportionately being born to people of faith.
That is why liberals would love for you to fill their barracks (also known as public schools) with your children. Don’t do it. Have as many children as you can train up well, and you will be doing more for the cause of truth and justice than you can possibly imagine. In the end, this battle is not one of words, ideas, guns, or power. It is one of children. Blessed are those parents whose quiver is full of them.

Power And Purpose Of Prayer Kept In Golden Bowls

Common Sense Commentary:

At the ending of the Old Testament Dispensation and the beginning of the New Testament, Zacharias, the priestly father of John the Baptist, was standing at the altar of God, offering incense with his and God's people's prayersLuke 1:9-10 "According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people were praying (outside) at the time of incense."  This was an occasion which had been observed by the Jews for nearly 1500 years, since it's inception by the Lord, through Moses, in Leviticus.  The word "incense" here, is the Greek word "thumiama", and means the sweet smell of burning incense ... as our prayers are unto God.  As the smoke of the incense went up, the prayers of God's people went up with it ... "For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ ...(unto the world)." 2Cor.2:15.

At the same time Priest Zacharias offered incense and God's people prayed, inside the Temple, in the Holy of Holies, at it's center, standing before the Mercy Seat (Throne) of God, were Holy instruments (Heb. 9:1-4).  Among these was a "golden censor". Since the Shekinah Glory of God Himself was upon that throne, I believe the prayers of God's People were received and reserved in that "golden censor".  Don't ask me how, but we can do the same thing with recorders, CD's, TV, and computers. Surely God has a better way. 

The next time we see that golden censor of prayers is long afterward.  The Old Testament prophets and priests have passed and the New Testament church age has passed also, into God's record books of history.  The scene is now after the rapture of Christ's Bride, the true church (assembly) of God's people (Rev.4).  The Tribulation has begun on earth and the Great Tribulation is about to begin.  In Heaven, the book of seven seals is about to be opened by Jesus Christ (Rev.5:1-7).  Then, in Rev.5:8 "And
when he had taken the book, the four beasts (c.f. V.13) `and twenty four elders (12+12= O.T.&N.T. Saints) fell down before the Lamb, having everyone of them harps, and golden vials (Gk. bowls) full of odours (Gk. incense)  which are the prayers of saints."  In this "Revelation of Jesus Christ", it becomes clear that all of the prayers of all true saints (Gk. set apart), of God, have been received and reserved in the very presence of God, from the first saint to the last, for a two fold purpose.  First, those prayers, of God's people (saints), fulfilled the first, and original purpose, in that saint's own life, and in the lives of those they prayed for, generation after generation until the rapture.  Second, those same prayers, prayed in great need, suffering, pain and persecution, as well as prayers for deliverance of themselves, friends, family and children from sin ... had a second purpose.  Under the seventh seal in Rev.8:1-5, we find those prayers still alive and active.  "And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices (the prayers?) and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake."  This was immediately followed by the sounding of the seven trumpets pouring out seven shock waves of Great Tribulation upon the Antichrist and people remaining on earth.  This last 3 1/2 years of the 7 year Tribulation period is known as the Great Tribulation and is immediately followed by the Millennial Kingdom of Christ and His Saints.

In this study, there are these key words in Greek and English:
(1) Thumiama = incense/odour. Our word incensed (angry) derives from this and means "to burn".  (2) Thumiaterion = censor ... a fire-pan or bowl. (3) Thusiasterion= altar... place for burning sacrifices.  (4) Thumomacheo = Highly displeased, a hostile mind intending war with.  (5) Thumos = wrath.

My motivation for this Blog post was inspired, on different occasions, by my friends, Jim Hoch and Elaine Merritt.  His story, on this subject, was in my last blog post before this one and her poem came in an email which I could not transfer here, to share with you. It had to do with this same subject. Thank you both. RB

Our Prayers Are Not Just Powerful ... But Forever

Common Sense Commentary:  This testimony was passed on to me by my friend Jim Hoch and is as good an example of the "Eternal Prayer Viols" in heaven as I have heard.  I must share it with you as an encouragement to pray for others, and as an example of the continual, eternal working of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians.
Please send this on to those you know who need it most ... we all do. RB

Pastor, It is just a story but in emphasizes Revelation 5:8 in a way I never thought about before. I am wondering about your thoughts on this. Jim Hoch
By Dalton Roberts
My Sunday Journal
My Mother once said that when her mother died, her first thought was, “This is the first night of my life I will go to sleep without my mother’s prayers.” She said the Lord then spoke to her, “I have your mother’s prayers stored away in a golden vial and when you need one, I will pour it out on you.”
Think what you will about my sanity but that makes me think we all have golden prayer vials in the Master’s House. You may think I am crazy but would that be any harder than making a possum or a porcupine?
One winter day, I was going home from the office. It was almost sundown. As I pulled onto the main road toward home, I saw a young man across the traffic median walking the opposite way, toward town. He was a mentally slow young man but worked all his life as a sack boy and everyone loved him.
His mother went to our church and often praised God for sending him to her and requested prayer for him. She knew he was slow but she said she had enough prayers stored up to keep him safe and secure the rest of his life.
As I pulled onto the highway going the opposite direction from the way he was walking, a voice spoke to me so strongly it was almost audible, “Go answer one of the stored-up prayers of that boy’s mother and take him wherever he is going. It’s too cold for him to be alone and walking.”
I found a place to turn around and went back to pick him up. He recognized me and when he got in the car, I asked where he was walking.
“To the food stamp office,” he answered.
I said, “That’s at least five miles from here. How often do you walk it?”
“Every week,” he answered.
I then asked where he lived and realized it was at least 10 miles from where he lived. He had already walked 5 miles and had 5 miles to go on this winter night.
I took him to get his food stamps and then took him home. It felt so good to answer one of his mother’s 25-year-old prayers.
I started hunting the Bible verse Mother was speaking of when she said our prayers are bottled up in heaven and found it. In Revelation 5:8, it speaks of twenty elders falling down before the Lamb, “having every one of them harps and golden vials full of odors (fragrances), which are the prayers of the saints.”
I learned several spiritual truths from these verses and this experience. I learned that when we pray for someone, our prayers will follow them and will be available when they most need them. More importantly, I learned that our prayers are forever and they are a sweet fragrance to God.
I have a new respect for praying. It’s not just something we robotically do for ourselves or others. It’s something we methodically and knowingly do to permanently minister to those we know and love.
Do not be discouraged when you pray for someone and you think nothing happens. You have placed a permanent blessing upon them. Your prayers are in God’s Vials to minister to them the rest of their lives.
Truly, prayers are forever.

Sodom And Gomorrah ... "Are We There Yet ?"

Common Sense Commentary: "[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." --Samuel Adams

The New Mexico Court of Appeals just made a landmark decision that could affect every Christian business person in America.
Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin of Albuquerque, New Mexico are the owners of Elane Photography. They also happen to be Christians who do their best to live and run their business by their Christian values.
In 2006, Vanessa Willock contacted Elane Photography and asked they would photograph her ‘commitment ceremony’ with her lesbian partner. Elaine Huguenin refused to accept the request based upon her Christian belief. Both Elaine and Jon felt strongly that the message being presented by the lesbian ceremony was against their Christian faith and therefore it would be wrong of them to participate in any fashion.
At the time, same-sex marriages and civil unions were not recognized as being legal in the state of New Mexico. Willock and her partner were attempting to do the next best thing in their minds by having a commitment ceremony.
After Elaine turned down the request, Willock filed a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission. The complaint stated that the Huguenins had discriminated against Willock because of her sexual orientation. In the meantime, Willock secured another photographer to photo their sinful and perverse ceremony.
In 2008, the New Mexico Human Rights Commission ruled that the Huguenins engaged in sexual orientation discrimination and ordered them to pay Willock $6,639.94 in legal fees. The case then went before a trial judge who upheld the commission’s decision.
In 2009, the Alliance Defense Fund appealed the court’s decision which moved the case before the New Mexico Court of Appeals who just rendered their decision to also uphold the commission’s ruling. Contained in the 45 page ruling, the court said that the photography business is a public accommodation and as such cannot use their faith to discriminate against others based upon sexual orientation. Part of the ruling read,
“The owners of Elane Photography must accept the reasonable regulations and restrictions imposed upon the conduct of their commercial enterprise despite their personal religious beliefs that may conflict with these governmental interests.”
Jordan Lance, senior counsel and senior vice-president of the Office of Strategic Initiatives for the Alliance Defense Fund commented about the ruling saying,
“Americans in the marketplace should not be subjected to legal attacks for simply abiding by their beliefs. Should the government force a videographer who is an animal rights activist to create a video promoting hunting and taxidermy? Of course not, and neither should the government force this photographer to promote a message that violates her conscience. Because the Constitution prohibits the state from forcing unwilling artists to promote a message they disagree with, we will certainly appeal this decision to the New Mexico Supreme Court.”
If this ruling is upheld by both the New Mexico Supreme Court and US Supreme Court, it could be used as the legal precedent for any homosexual to sue a Christian business if they believe they have been discriminated against in any form. It will also be used to force any Christian operating a business that is open to the public to do things that are against their faith or face a lengthy court battle and end up having to pay hefty fines and legal fees.
I’ve said this time and time again, that homosexuals do not want equal treatment, rather they want preferential treatment above and beyond what everyone else gets. They want special rights, not equal rights and they are succeeding in securing them at the cost of Christian’s rights. The only way for homosexuals to gain their rights is to strip Christians of theirs and that is exactly what is happening. And it’s happening because too many Christians in America have been too complacent and have done nothing to protect our Christian rights.
If what is happening to Elaine and Jon Huguenin disgusts and upsets you, then get off your butt and do something about it. Contact your own local, state and federal politicians and urge them to protect America’s Christian rights and values. Get out and help campaign for those men and women who will work to protect our rights. When November comes around, get out and vote for those candidates who will do what’s right.
Most importantly, pray, pray and pray some more. Prayer is the most powerful tool and weapon a Christian has. If every Christian earnestly prayed for our nation and its leaders, we would see a remarkable change in our country. I wish every Christian would post 2 Chronicles 7:14 in their homes and memorize it and teach it to their children. If we want to save our nation, we need to follow God’s instructions when He said,
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
Amen! Amen! Amen!

One of the Conservative web sites of Gary North, a great American, publishes under the name of "Godfather Politics". Gary isn't referring to his own "politics" but that we are living under, what has become,  a Mafia like Political Dictatorship.  Gary has been fighting Communism, Socialism and other enemies of Freedom since I was a young man, and still survives to stand for truth and honor.

Colo.Shooter's Brain Made Him Do It?

Common Sense Commentary: Gary DeMar writes for "godfather politics" which is an allusion to the Mafia style Washington politics we are being led to the slaughter by.  The Liberal Left blames Conservatives or the Tea Party for "starving children" and every mass murderer and serial killer who arises.  Pictures of Tea Partiers I have seen all look like flag waving, ordinary Americans to me.  Most of them are working people trying to build a next egg for retirement or the kid's college tuition. So Gary turns it around on the Liberal Left with this article. RB

Government-Educated Mass Murderers

Read more: http://godfatherpolitics.com/6258/government-educated-mass-murderers/#ixzz21THhspqn

Liberals love to find conservative connections to despicable acts of violence. The Aurora, Colorado, shooting is no exception. But going back through the background of mass murderers, I’ve come up with a common denominator – they were all government educated.
The 1999 Columbine shooters were products of the Colorado Public (government) schools system. The pair killed 13 people and injured 24 others. Their worldview was fundamentally Darwinian. “In his journal, [Eric] Harris mentioned his admiration of what he imagined to be natural selection, and wrote that he would like to put everyone in a super Doom game and see to it that the weak die and the strong live.”
The Rocky Mountain News reported Harris and Dylan justified their actions based on Darwinian Natural Selection. Harris was wearing “a white T-shirt with the inscription ‘Natural Selection’ on its front.” It was based on a video game of the same name. “The game’s World Wide Web site says it encompasses a ‘realm where anything can happen,’ a place for the ‘bravest of the brave and the fiercest of the fierce. . . . It’s a place where survival of the fittest takes a very literal meaning. . . . It’s the natural way, it’s Natural Selection.”
Where did they learn about Natural Selection? In government schools. It’s not just in the United States. Finland had its own mini-Columbine when
“at least seven people were killed when a teenaged gunman opened fire at a school in southern Finland on November 7, 2007 hours after a video was posted on YouTube predicting a massacre there. . . . The YouTube video, entitled ‘Jokela High School Massacre — 11/7/2007,’ was posted by a user called ‘Sturmgeist89.’ ‘I am prepared to fight and die for my cause,’ read a posting by a user of the same name. ‘I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection.’” The shooter described himself as “a social Darwinist.”[1]
The Virginia Tech massacre was a school shooting that took place on April 16, 2007, on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia, a government school steeped in Darwinian science. Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 others. Cho railed against his parents’ strong Christian faith.”[2]
James Holmes is the product of government education. He had a federal grant to study neuroscience at the University of Colorado. Neuroscience is steeped in evolutionary biology and is by definition wholly materialistic:
When materialist causes become both necessary and sufficient to explain all of human thought then parsimony dictates that references to a soul or other supernatural entities can be tossed out.
Given the foundational premise of neuroscience, Holmes did nothing more than kill evolved soulless biological units – bags of meat and bones with electricity coursing through them.
A September 13, 2008 Newsweek article shows that the science of neuroscience is that our actions are the result of “an array of mindlessness,” the reaction of “mechanical or chemical bits.”
“Today neuroscientists are finding abundant evidence of an idea that even Freud played with more than 100 years ago, that separating mind from brain makes no sense. Nobel Prize-winning psychiatrist-neuroscientist Eric Kandel stated it directly in a watershed paper published in 1998: ‘All mental processes, even the most complex psychological processes, derive from operations of the brain.’
“Neuroscientists consider it settled that the mind arises from the cooperation of billions of interconnected cells that, individually, are no smarter than amoebae. But it’s a shocking idea to some that the human mind could arise out of such an array of mindlessness. Many express amazement that emotions, pain, sexual feelings or religious belief could be a product of brain function. They are put off by the notion that such rich experiences could be reduced to mechanical or chemical bits. Or they worry that scientific explanations may seduce people into a kind of moral laziness that provides a ready excuse for any human failing: ‘My brain made me do it.’”

If I were James Holmes, I would find myself a good lawyer and the best neuroscientist that money could buy and argue that I was taught in government schools that “My evolved brain made me do it.”

The United States Tissue Issue

Common Sense Commentary: 

All U.S. currency (green paper money) was backed by gold and silver ... until recent years.  Politicians, in their divine wisdom, decided that the law requiring that every paper dollar printed had to have an equal amount of gold or silver backing it, in reserve, was an "inconvenient truth". They were sure they could do a better job of their heavenly calling.... "redistributing the wealth", if they were not hindered by having to constantly dig up more gold and silver to deposit in reserve, before printing
more currency to spend on their "good causes" and fantasies.  So, in turn, they eliminated both gold and silver backing of our currency, and in it's place, put their "promise" to pay ... in Constitutional language ...."The full faith and credit of the United States Government". This then, gave them the unrestricted, blue sky, ability to print all the green paper money they could ever spend to pay for their long "wish list" like wars, foreign aid, a comfortable living for non-producers and non-workers, thousands more federal jobs, larger federal benefits for themselves and "other" starving, downtrodden masses here and abroad.  Plus, the American retirees and wage earners/tax payers would have a government promise instead of that worthless, antiquated relic, of gold and silver, backing their hard earned "filthy lucre", which they were so greedily determined to hold on to for the kid's college, bills, food and other selfish desires like retirement.

So, time moved on, and now that the U.S. green paper dollars are more numerous than equal sized squares of toilet tissue, which are far cheaper to produce but of about equal value, and easily carried on a belt roller, it is only "natural" to switch their "roles" in life... Conveniently banded dollar bills to the bathroom and nursery; and rolls of tissue to the bank, purse and pocket ... or belt roller.  This would solve many other problems as well. A bank roll, and rolling in the dough would be more accurately defined and understood under this concept; and no one on earth would be short of money to pay off their credit cards, education and home loans.  It's a win win plan.

I have no Scripture for this blog post ... except maybe Ezra 6:1, "And Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of rolls ...." ... ??? where ???
....in the what ???  "... where the treasure was laid up in Babylon."

Oh, I know, I know, I must be getting old, senile, off my medication or out of my head ..... But you gotta admit, my plan is more logical than anything you've heard out of Washington in recent years.   Yes, it's really me, RB, ThD, Litt.D

Paul Harvey ...."If I Were The Devil"

Common Sense Commentary: The following  master of Common Sense, spoke these words nearly fifty years ago.  He was the famous Paul Harvey, ABC radio, beloved friend of all Americans and commentator for many years.  Nearly everyone listened to Paul in those days.  His commentary was broadcast over 1200 radio stations across the nation.  As you listen to these precious 3 minutes of commentary ... or prophecy, remember that it was broadcast 47 years ago, April 3, 1965. His subject that day,

The Stage Is Set For Anti-Christ

Common Sense Commentary: There has never been a time in all of human history when the entire world was in such utter chaos and slipping further into the abyss, as it is today.  There has never before been a world conflict with Israel, America and the Muslim Nations at Center Stage with all the earth's people looking on, awe struck.  There has never been, in human history, such a boiling cauldron of Prophetic events stirring the brew into a swirling tangle of evil possibilities.

This has to be the near final preparatory work of Satan for the soon coming of his Anti-Christ from obscurity to world domination.

And if his "coming" is near ... the Second Coming of Christ Himself is even nearer. Christ will come in the sky, Rapture His Believers and end this dispensation as Anti-Christ rises to prominence and the seven year Tribulation begins. Like the restoration of the nation of Israel in April of 1948, which could not have happened prior to that moment and could not have happened since, The world empowerment of Anti-Christ cannot happen until Christ returns and gathers His true church to heaven. When that happens, and ALL Christians are GONE from the earth ... CALAMITY erupts. With all the Christians gone, their presence and influence is gone and the Holy Spirit
lives in those Christians .... His work through them is no longer on earth. Except for the "two witnesses", That leaves only evil... for seven years.

 Read these verses carefully,  then watch video: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (Anti-Christ)

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now ye know what (the Holy Spirit) withholdeth that he (Anti-Christ) might be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity (Anti-Christ) doth already work: only he who now letteth (Holy Spirit)will let, until he be taken out of the way. (At the Rapture)

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, (At the end of the 7 year Tribulation Period when Christ returns to Jerusalem to Reign for the 1000 year Millinnial Kingdom) and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, (Anti-Christ) whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Guessing who the Anti-Christ might be serves no purpose.
We will not know, for sure, who the Anti-Christ is until
Christ takes us home, but he will have to be a world renowned figure, immediately chosen, after the Rapture,to solve the world's problems which are made much worse by the absence of Christians worldwide.

California Welfare Is On Vacation, Where Are You?

Common Sense Commentary: From the left coast land of "Let's pretend" to be fruits and nuts, the home of terminal fantasy, fresh grown hocus pocus, and "Don't worry, be happy celebrities like Charlie Manson and his band, Michell Jackson and ten thousand other glittering Hollywood Stars.... escapes a bit of Common Sense... like my blog. RB

The California Liberal Legislature is suddenly in a dither, running   in circles with calculators, cell phones, i-pads, and arm loads of other home grown hi-tech, cussin the devil, who made them do it, and trying to figure out if they were drugged or asleep when the votes were taken.  "Who did this too us" the Speaker shouts.  Where is that
twenty big, big, big, big ones, that $20,000,000,000 spelled BILLION DOLLARS we are in debt ... and can't pay, beg, borrow or steal ?  Barrack has let us down. Bernanke could print it up in seconds.  Save us Congressperson Pelosi, you are one of us. Send the Terminator to bring home all our thousands of  vacationing California welfare recipients.  Bring them here, to the capital.  Grab their ankles, hold them high and shake out all those Vegas coins, Hawaii sand, and left over welfare checks before they can get to their yachts and escape to Monti Carlo. RB

 Here is the evidence.... How it happened.


Hardest Lessons To Learn

Common Sense Commentary: There are many very difficult lessons to learn in life.  Here are a few of the most common.

Nothing is Perfect!
Including you, your spouse, your children, your relatives, friends, house, car, job, boss, employees, or Pastor.  Nor are your body, face, hair or clothes. However, so many of us, for various reasons maybe, are dissatisfied with imperfection in all these imperfect things. It is a kind of innate curse.  It causes so many people to be unhappy with themselves and practically every other thing and person around them.  Husbands and wives constantly trying to perfect themselves and each other and the kids and ad infinitum.... him too. They make everybody else miserable in addition to their own dissatisfaction with imperfection.  How many divorces have I dealt with where one or the other of a couples could not stop being critical of the other's human imperfections.  It destroys children's self image and causes a lifetime of dissatisfaction.  Stop it!   We must all strive to do and be our best...NOT perfection.  If God's word doesn't speak to it, leave it alone.  Stop trading one imperfect thing for another, or worse imperfect thing.  Trading cars, houses, jobs, friends, spouses ... expecting perfection... which is impossible.

Stop eating BEFORE you feel full!
Eating habits are habits ... good or bad.  Dump the bad ones, one at a time, and load-up on the good ones, one at a time.  Get your potato off that couch and shape up...for your sake, your health's sake, your self image's sake, your testimony's sake, for your life.

Your in-come must exceed your out-go!
"Living within our means" is something this generation must learn all over again,
which our parents and grand parents were forced to do to survive.  Now it is our turn.  The easy fruit is picked and the tree cut down for fire wood. Frugality is a way of life... for the rest of your lives. Learn it now.  Others will wake up too late and have to trade that vacation home for a bag of groceries.  Stop spending your life for stuff you can't afford and don't need.  Conservative frugality is like tithing and eating and sleeping, it is not a temporary experiment or a futile shot in the dark ... at the dark.  It is a way of life which honors you, your family and God. If you tithe and have learned this lesson and can afford it, do what you wish. You are steward of what God has given to you.  I am not speaking to you.

Nothing is EVER exactly what it appears to be.
It may be better or it may be worse or it may be opposite of it's appearance. This includes you and me.  I try to be transparent but to be transparent, I must be honest; I am not transparent.  I do not always look... what I feel, or think .  I do not always say exactly what I think or reveal my innermost heart and self to the world or to anyone but God.  There is no use trying to leave our thoughts unspoken, to Him.  He knows us all in minute detail without us saying a word.  "...Man looketh on the outward appearance, but God looketh on the heart". 1 Sam.16:7.  We are not capable of judging a person, thing or event without knowing the unseen facts relating to them, which God sees clearly. We have all experienced those times when we were thoroughly convinced of something that turned out wrong.  When the truth slapped us in the face, we didn't want to hear it.  We had committed ourselves to a false conclusion and our pride cried out, "Don't confuse me with facts, I know what I believe." Embarrassing.

Hear both sides of the story!
This is a hard one.  Who doesn't want to believe their child's or friend's side of the story... instead of the teacher's or a stranger's side?  We are certain our little angel would not lie about that lying little devil next door. We know, for sure, our spouse wouldn't lie to us.... probably ... maybe.  As Groucho Marx said, "Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?" God's word teaches us not to be "respecters of persons".  "For there is no respect of persons with God."  Rom.2:11.  It is wrong to always believe a friend or family member and presume the guilt or dishonesty of those they are in conflict with ... without knowing both sides of the disagreement. Loyalty must not overlook Justice and Truth.

You will reap what you sow! 
 "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Gal.6:7. Sow good, reap good. Sow bad, reap bad. I always happens... in time.
Human nature has a peculiar twist to it.  People do and say things, with a period at the end as if that tiny black spot ends the sentence or action and all consequences, repercussions, and nuclear fall out.  If we speak explosive words and ignite a fuse action to an atomic device, we are subject to a minimum of equal reaction and possibly a life changing or life ending detonation.  Sow a little West Texas, dust devil and reap a mile wide tornado. "For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind...." Hosea 8:7.  On the good seed side,  Jesus said, "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.  Lk.6:38. Yes, we will reap what we sow, only bigger. RB

Key To Spiritual Illumination And Growth

Common Sense Commentary:

First, lets look at the lock.  It is huge, strong and humanly impossible to open.  it is human ignorance of the divine, holy truths of God.  It has a very small, narrow key-hole which looks insignificant to human eyes.  Men try to force the lock open with intelligence, money and craft but the lock of ignorance is unyielding to human effort. The lock is not God's lock but the zoo keeper's.  the key is God's, but hangs there on the gate of ignorance readily available to the captives of error, ignorance and denial. 

This small, golden key opens the door between restraint and freedom, between imprisonment and the limitless universe.  This precious little key releases the human spirit, mind and soul to an enormous universe of reality's knowledge and content...It is TRUTH. "The truth shall make you free", Jesus said. Jn.8:32.  No man has all truth or all knowledge, but God gives this sacred key to the hand of FAITH of all who will see it and accept it.  Eph.2:8  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."  Without this Bible based faith, nothing else counts. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe...." Heb.11:6.  The Middle English word, "trouthe" meant steadfastly faithful.  The universal truths of God sprang from His steadfast faithfulness.  So, what is faith ?  According to Heb.11:1 it is "substance and evidence" of the truths of God.  In a word, it is REALITY of "things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen". 

Faith is like a multi-faceted prism, in true believers, sparkling with light and life, reflecting the faithfulness of God in very small flashes... as compared to it's source ... the magnificent Sunlight in heaven. Those small flashes of  faith and truth are more powerful than all other worldly glimmers of knowledge combined.

Jesus said that, "FAITH" as small as a mustard seed could move mountains. And so it is when Christians believe the promises of God's word ... anchored in His steadfast faithfulness.  "Faith cometh by hearing ... the word of God." Rom.10:17.

Christian faith is demonstrated when the light of God shines through the human prism and beams a sparkle of affection, humility, loyalty, unswerving adherence, and imperviousness to contradicting influence. Affection for God's truths, humility in their use, loyalty to Him who said, "I am the truth", unswerving adherence to those truths in the face of evil attacks and "science, falsely so called." 1Tim.6:20.

True scientific, moral and spiritual grown are impossible without an absolute, commitment to truth as reality and reality's God knows it. Many sincere, honest scientists have found God while seeking truth.

In order for that to be our highest goal and pursuit in life, we must yield our will, our opinions and understanding, in humility, before God and men. There is no spirituality without humility.  We must be ready to adjust our understanding in the face of facts of reality and truth which contradict what we had believed was true but was not.  We must quickly, faithfully abandon error in our thinking when greater truth is revealed to us.  We must be committed by life and death to God's truth ... but tolerate not the smallest fragment of error, within ourselves, concerning the things of God.  Apologize easily, admit error, purge it out and continue on a better, straighter path... "bearing precious seed" of truth.... faithfully. RB

Many Swore Hitler, Stalin & Mao Were "Good Guys"

Common Sense Commentary:  Many said Hitler, Stalin & Mao were "Good Guys".
The value of an opinion all depends on whose opinion it is.  Those who related to Hitler, Stalin or Mao and had similar ideas, goals and guiding principles, would defend those who agreed with them as "good guys".  A mother whose son raped, strangled, and butchered nine young men, said, through her tears, "He is such a sweet boy".  Yeah right !

Hugo Chavez: Obama Is a 'Good Guy'
Friday, 13 Jul 2012 09:47 PM
By Newsmax Wires

President Hugo Chavez denied on Friday that Venezuela was a threat to anyone, after U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney criticized Barack Obama for playing down the risk posed by the socialist leader.

And he called the U.S. president "a good guy," saying that real revolutionaries realize that any criticism Obama makes, of the Caracas regime, is just election-year politicking. (There's another word for that. RB)

"Obama is campaigning. He's a candidate," Chavez told a Venezuelan television station. "I hope the real revolutionaries understand well. I think that Barack Obama — aside from 'the president' — is a good guy."

Slip Of The Tongue Can Be It's Only Truth For A Liar's Mouth

Common Sense Commentary: 
My Dear American Patriotic Survivors ...

No Christian has ever, by a slip of the tongue, said, "My Muslim faith"... as Hussein Obama claims to have done: As No Muslim has ever slipped and said, "My Christian Faith". It just is not done.
The only slip of the tongue in the link below is, Liberal Democrat, Maxine Waters slips, stumbles, and then blurts out the truth about the hidden Democrat agenda ... SOCIALISM of the worst kind. One which dictates government and all business, farming and industry which is "National Socialism". That is what the letters in NAZI stand for... National Socialist Party , in German. Add atheism and you have National Atheistic Socialism which is Communism. So who got us into this mess ? Not Waters or Obama but those who voted for them. May God have mercy on your souls, for what you have created, because there will be none, for any of us, under such a government. It will be NaziUSA or CommunistUSA. Lord deliver us. Rayburn

Ayn Rand Was Right On At Least One Thing

Common Sense Commentary: The political and financial mess our country is now in,  is the sort of genius that springs from the rotten core of a body of no-gooder do-gooder bureaucrats whose sole function is to impede the market and control every jot and tittle of all of our lives. It is the embodiment of Ayn Rand's famous quote:

"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."  Ayn Rand, 1905-1982

Quantitative Easing=Perfidious Perversion of Perception unto Perdition

Common Sense Commentary: What you sow in handfuls today, you reap in truck-loads later... whether good seed or bad. It is God's unchangeable law of sowing and reaping. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: For whatsoever a man, (state or nation) soweth, that shall he also reap." Gal.6:7.

The factors of production ... Capital, Labour, Property and Free enterprise ... have been perverted and destroyed by Government, Wall Street and big Banks.  Get This Straight: Prices are not going UP, the purchasing power of your hard earned dollars is going DOWN  due to the unrestrained, digital  printing of astronomical volumes of new dollars.

Our Official, Government Quislings, Intemperate Wall Street Gluttons, and One-world, Bankster Globalists have conspired to drain the world's wealth into their control ... "for our own good".... so they can redistribute it equally over the world ... except for their own greedy cut.  They will raise the standard of living in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and lower it in Europe, Australia and America.

Gold and silver are the only fiscal constants acting as a barometer to expose this Government induced criminal action.  Precious metals have always worked to effectively control Government spending until now,  when they manipulate it with tons of white "paper" silver and gold promises, sold into the market, to hold gold and silver  prices down, which creates the illusion that green paper currency is still worth something. When our dollars were backed up by gold and silver, the government could not print new currency without an equal amount of gold or silver in reserve to cover it.

Over the last twelve years, precious metals have increased, in dollar amounts required to purchase them, by several hundred percent.  From $250 to $1600 per oz. gold, and from $4 to $30 per oz. silver.  The price of everything, real, has climbed steeply in those twelve years, in dollars , but remain approximately the same in the gold or silver required to buy them.  (The housing market is a fluke of over production, which was in response to our Government's policy of giving loans out to unqualified, irresponsible, buyers regardless of their credit record or ability to repay those loans.)
Back to my subject, a $50 man's suit, back when, which cost 12 oz. of silver can still be bought for 12 oz. of silver, but the same suit would now cost $350 in paper dollars.

All of the above is approximation but the theory is correct.  Quantitative Easing is nothing more or less than living a multi trillion dollar life-style on a series of maxed out credit cards ... by our government.  There is just one outcome of that ... financial and moral ruin. Are we there yet?  Almost !  Our Government's ruined credit rating forbids any new credit cards so our only recourse is "Default" or faster printing of "Counterfeit Dollars". The latter will push default into the laps of our next crop of politicians and us tax paying citizens.

Dennis Prager: A Truly Great American Jew

Common Sense Commentary: Mrs Blair and I have listened to Dennis Prager, every chance we got, for years.  He is the best of the best talk show hosts.  Dennis is not a Christian.  He is a Jew with Christian-like convictions and tons of wisdom.  He is a great American Patriot and one of the best speakers you will ever hear.  Look for his daily, radio broadcast.  I agree with 99% of everything he says. He would make a great President.  I am convinced he will one day be a Christian Jew. RB

Dennis Prager is an American syndicated radio talk show host, syndicated columnist, author, and public speaker. He is noted for his conservative political and social views emanating from conservative Judeo-Christian values. 

Born: August 2, 1948 (age 63), United States of America
Height: 6' 4" (1.93 m)
A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give.

By Dennis Prager.

To the students and faculty of our high school:

I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.

First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity -- your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.

This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationality-based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America , one of its three central values -- e pluribus Unum, "from many, one." And this school will be guided by America 's values. This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism -- an unhealthy preoccupation with the self -- while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.

Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America 's citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here -- it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English --but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.

Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning's elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.

Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school's property -- whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can't speak without using the f-word, you can't speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as "Nigger," even when used by one black student to address another black, or "bitch," even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.

Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way -- the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago -- by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.

Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue... There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately fortunate -- to be alive and to be an American.

Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.

 Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
