Our nation was not founded to be a Christian nation but, it was founded upon Christian principles. Our founding fathers were all believers in God and for the most part in the Bible as His word to mankind. Here are quotes from the first three of our Presidents –
“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
—The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
“Now I will avow, that I then believe, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System.”
–John Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, excerpt from a letter to Thomas Jefferson
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…”
—Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.
“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
—The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385
In 2014 I wrote a 4 part series of articles titled 26 Signs on the Lord’s Soon Return. It isn’t that these signs have not happened throughout history but, that they all are happening together right now, and in ever increasing frequency. This is the warning Jesus gave, that they would be like birth pangs getting closer together and more intense until the time of the delivery.
“All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs)” – Matt. 24:8
If you haven’t read this series, I urge you to do so. But, there is another topic I want to concentrate on in this article – it is Psalm 83. This psalm was written by Asaph who besides being King David’s worship leader was also a prophet. Many believe Psalm 83 is a prophecy of a war that has not yet happened and I have written about it before. But, whether that is true or not, Psalm 83 certainly describes events happening right now and it may well lead into the war of Ezekiel 38, 39 . Continue reading
Chapters 17 and 18 introduce another actor in the endtime scenario that begins in chapter 12 and 13 – the Great Whore.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:” – Rev. 17:1-4 Continue reading
Obama Threatens to Allow a Palestinian State
Obama Calls on Israel to End “Occupation” and Commit to Peace.
US President Barack Obama called on the new Israeli government to show “a genuine commitment to a two-state solution” and resolve what he called the humanitarian crisis in Gaza following last summer’s war. This statement shows the utter falseness of President Obama.
To Israel from Gaza
First, the only “genuine commitment” that would ever satisfy the Islamic Hamas in Gaza would be for Israel to commit mass suicide! Israel has made many genuine commitments to peace with the Palestinians over the past 50 years only to be rebuffed by the Muslims and answered with rockets, riots, and killing of Israeli civilians. But, Obama never seems to highlight this as they would not fit his repeated claims that Islam is a ‘peaceful’ religion!
Second, if Obama and the Muslims really want a two-state solution why not divide Continue reading
“I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.” – Revelation 2:13
One of the first martyrs of the Church happened in the city of Pergamos. But what do we know about this ancient city now located in modern Turkey? According to the prophet John, it was where Satan’s throne was and where he dwells. But what is Satan’s throne? This teaching by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn sheds new light on this question. Continue reading
