The First Kingdom of God on earth began some 6,000 years ago, when God placed masculine and feminine Adam in the Garden of Eden.
He gave them dominion over the entire planet.
And told them to SUBDUE IT. (Genesis 1:28)
The Hebrew kabash means to bring into FORCED subjection.
This begs the question, if EVERYTHING that God had made in those six 24-hour days of re-creation WAS “EXCEEDINGLY GOOD” (Genesis 1:31), WHAT ON EARTH (no pun intended) were Adam supposed to SUBDUE or bring into FORCED subjection?
Something or someone MUST HAVE BEEN out-of-order.
Something or someone MUST HAVE REBELLED AGAINST God’s order or God wouldn’t have told Adam to FORCE IT into subjection.
Something or someone MUST HAVE EXISTED and REMAINED FROM BEFORE those six days, that was REBELLIOUS and needed to be FORCED into submission.
Can you hear the false theory that the earth is only 6,000 years old and THAT THERE WAS NOTHING HERE PRIOR TO the 6 days of re-creation swirling down the drain?
SOMETHING must have happened on earth PRIOR to those 6 days, when God puts His King (Adam) here, created in His Likeness, and tells them to FORCE IT into submission.
Not to mention that, PRIOR TO the 6 days of re-Creation, Genesis 1:2 describes the earth as being “formless, empty, ENTIRELY SUBMERGED IN WATER and COVERED IN DARKNESS”.
Surely, God COULDN’T HAVE created it THAT WAY:
If God created the earth ONLY DURING THOSE 6 DAYS, WHY would the earth that He created be covered in DARKNESS when God is light, and in Him is NO DARKNESS AT ALL? (1 John 1:5)
In fact, THE VERY FIRST THING that God PUTS BACK on His re-created earth IS LIGHT (Himself). (Genesis 1:3)
SOMEONE must have rebelled against God PRIOR TO THOSE 6 DAYS and caused havoc on the earth, totally destroyed it, COVERED IT WITH DARKNESS, and caused God to retaliate by sending a flood.
The Hebrew term tohu wabohu indicates A TOTALLY CHAOTIC STATE. And God is NOT the author of chaos. (1 Corinthians 14:33)
The Apostle Peter plainly tells us what happened to the world that existed PRIOR TO those 6 days in which God RE-CREATED and renovated the earth:
“But THEY DELIBERATELY OVERLOOK THE FACT THAT LONG AGO by God’s word THE HEAVENS EXISTED AND THE EARTH, formed out of water and by water, through which THE WORLD OF THAT TIME PERISHED BY A FLOOD.
And by that same word, THE PRESENT HEAVENS AND EARTH are reserved for fire, kept for the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men”... (2 Peter 3:5-7)
The Apostle Peter contrasts THE ANCIENT “heavens and earth” and “the world OF THAT TIME” WHICH PERISHED, with THE PRESENT heavens and earth.
Consequently, there MUST HAVE BEEN FORMER heavens and earth that existed BEFORE the PRESENT heavens and earth.
Consequently, the PRESENT heavens and earth CANNOT BE the ORIGINAL heaven and earth.
Back to my original question:
If everything that God made in those 6 days in Genesis was “exceedingly good”, WHO OR WHAT were they (Adam) supposed to SUBDUE BY FORCE?
They were supposed to LOCK SATAN and his angels in the abyss, along with all the demons (pre-Adamic, humanoid beings that initially inhabited the earth).
From Eden, they were supposed to “RE-FILL THE EARTH and SUBDUE IT” – the WHOLE earth.
What First Adam FAILED TO DO, Jesus (Last Adam) HAS DONE:
That is why, after His Second Coming, He locks up satan, his angels and demons in the abyss (SUBDUES them by force), and (for the THIRD and final time, Revelation 21:1) He MAKES NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH.
And we have God’s Word that this THIRD and final time, on earth as in heaven, righteousness WILL PREVAIL (2 Peter 3:13).

We know there are many antichrists and one in particular. But did you know there’s an anti-gospel?
Oh, I know, that’s probably what Satanists preach.
Mmm, not exactly: although they COULD.
The Anti-Gospel, the international anthem of today’s ultra-liberal leftists, of the Hollywood and entertainment elites, was composed in 1971.
I’m sure you have heard it scores of times, and I’ve personally heard an “entertainer” whose name I can’t remember say during a televised New Year’s Eve concert “this is HOW we change the world” and then sing their Anti-Gospel anthem:
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one.
Ever wonder why these radicals hate the Christian faith SO MUCH?
Because it teaches there is a heaven and a hell.
Why they want OPEN BORDERS, and even allowing illegal aliens and other non-citizens to vote?
Because their international anthem calls for “no possessions”, and for “ALL the people sharing ALL the world”.
This blasphemous anti-Gospel hymn BLAMES the Christian GOD (“religion”) for all the world’s ills:
If there were “no religion”, we would have “the brotherhood of man”.
Oh, really? There was NO RELIGION in Eden.
Did we get the “brotherhood of man” from the TWO humans there WHO, BY THE WAY, WERE SINLESS AND IMMORTAL?
Fat chance you’re gonna get such brotherhood from today’s sin-infected, mortals, with corrupt and degenerate minds!
In his utter ignorance and spiritual blindness, the composer doesn’t distinguish between faith and religion, between a personal relationship with a loving, wonderful, LIVING God WHO CAN BE EXPERIENCED in the very depths of our beings, and some imaginary deity, that never claimed to save anyone and has never intervened in human affairs SINCE “HE” (or “she”) DOESN’T EVEN EXIST.
Who wrote THE GOSPEL that most clearly presents the sheer Greatness and Deity of Jesus?
The Apostle John, the disciple Jesus loved.
Who wrote the Anti-Gospel?
satan’s apostle John, who predicted the demise of the Christian faith in 1966.
He also bragged about being “more popular than Jesus”.
satan’s John clearly saw Jesus and the Christian faith as THE ENEMY and MAIN OBSTACLE to “the world living as one”.
Christ’s Apostle John TOLD US THE TRUTH.
Just like his father satan, satan’s apostle John LIED TO HIS GROUPIES, LIED about the end of the Christian faith, and LIED in his diabolical song.
His Anti-Gospel is REALLY BAD NEWS: an unobtainable ILLUSION (LIE) THAT WILL NEVER MATERIALIZE.
Christ’s Apostle John is in heaven.
satan’s apostle John is in hell.
Guess what, fools?
Like it or not, THEY DO EXIST!

JESUS IS NATIONALIST
Jesus, to coin a phrase, WILL “MAKE ISRAEL GREAT AGAIN”. (MIGA)
He will restore the Kingdom to Israel. (Luke 1:31-33; Acts 1:6)
After all, Israel will be a blessing TO THE GENTILES. (Jeremiah 3:17; 4:2; Galatians 3:8)
In order to BE a blessing, Israel must first BE BLESSED. (Genesis12:3; Isaiah 51:4-5; Jeremiah 4:2)
And WHAT GREATER BLESSING than having all 12 tribes reunited in their Promised Land, under THE KING OF KINGS? (Isaiah 31:1; 40:11; Ezekiel 34:23; Hosea 3:5)
Jesus will rule ALL GENTILES with a rod of iron. (Revelation 2:26-28) (Zechariah 14:9)
His righteousness will be strictly taught and enforced, thereby bringing tremendous blessings, including genuine love, peace, health, wholeness, a clean and perfect environment, abundance, safety, loyalty, unity, righteousness, FAITH, and THE VISIBLE PRESENCE OF HIM who is “all of the above”. (Isaiah 2:3)
There won’t be any elections and, therefore, no voter fraud, or ballots mysteriously appearing out of nowhere, AFTER legitimate winners have been announced. (Isaiah 45:14, 22)
Jesus is King forever BY BIRTHRIGHT. (Psalm 2:7-8)
He MADE US, and He OWNS us.
He BOUGHT US with no less than His most precious, sinless Blood. (1 Peter 1:18-19)
Globalists will get their way for 42 months.
Nationalists will get their way FOR A THOUSAND YEARS. (Psalm 72:11; Revelation 20:4)
…And eternally beyond…
We needn’t argue about which ideology is best:
Jesus is nationalist and Jesus is ALWAYS RIGHT.

ANTICHRIST IS GLOBALIST
In a recent event commemorating the end of World War I, there was a clash of ideologies:
Certain nations, like the U.S. (Trump), Poland (Duda), Italy (Salvini) and most recently Brazil (Bolsonaro), have elected nationalist leaders, while Canada and most European nations extol the benefits of globalism, denouncing nationalism, and even going so far as calling it “treason”.
Every U.S. President since Ronald Reagan, regardless of political party: George Herbert W. Bush, Clinton, George W, and Mr. Obama have been globalists.
The exception has been, of course, our current President who, if we believed the mainstream media, IS THE WORST PERSON EVER TO BE BORN, WORSE THAN the Antichrist.
Former U.S. Presidents, European and Canadian leaders, are about to get their wish:
A world with no borders, no national identity, no religion, and unrestricted trade!
Where those who DO NOT SHARE that particular point of view are regarded as “evil” (sound familiar?)
They may not be bullied out of restaurants, or have a mob camp in front of their house, uttering threats and breaking down its door, but they’ll be barred from purchasing or selling and, ultimately, persecuted and EXECUTED. (Revelation 13:7, 16-18)
All under one ALL POWERFUL leader!
Alexander was THE FIRST GLOBALIST in human history.
While there were other empires before the Greeks, they all saw their nation as supreme and those they conquered as vassals.
Alexander was the first to envision a worldwide system where everyone, regardless of national origin, was “equal” (at least in theory).
He actually encouraged intermarriage between Greeks and their subjects, hoping to erase the ideological differences between East and West.
That is exactly what he will do, again, when he emerges from the abyss as the Antichrist. (Daniel 2:43-44; Revelation 17:12-17)
It will be “ONE FOR ALL and ALL FOR ONE”.
I’m not suggesting that EVERYONE who embraces globalism today is inherently wicked.
Throughout history there have been well meaning people with wrong ideas.
They will see their wishes become reality, albeit for 42 lunar months.
In the fourth century B.C. Alexander’s globalist agenda was cut short by his untimely death at age 33.
This time it will be cut short by the return of Christ.

"When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because THEY WERE BEWILDERED AND HELPLESS, LIKE SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD" (Matthew 9:36)
Can TV make one a leader?
Does appearing on TV magically imbue someone with leadership ability?
Does appearing often on secular or Kristian TV mean that individual has SPECIAL ANOINTING from God?
Does it even mean that God has CALLED him or her into His ministry?
Does it mean that what they SELL, teach or write IS TRUE?
The answer to all these questions is a RESOUNDING "NO".
If you THINK it does, then we're in deeper trouble than I thought.
If you THINK it does, then our "leaders" (heaven help us) are Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian.
By the same token, does selling 30 MILLION copies of a "Christian" novel which, by very definition, is FICTION, make one a leader?
Does it make one AN EXPERT on eschatology?
Does it mean that person was CALLED OF GOD to teach or minister?
And yet, this is how most Christians assess "leadership".
This is how the Church of THIS FINAL generation perceives leadership.
What is TV?
A MONEY-MAKING medium, PERIOD:
A momentary mirage, an optical illusion that DECEIVES its viewers into believing EVERYTHING IT SAYS:
Whether the message it broadcasts is true or false, Spirit given or merely self-serving religious propaganda, is not a major concern.
TV DECEIVES people into thinking that EVERYTHING IT SAYS IS TRUE because they "saw it" or "heard it" in that mercurial medium.
But Christian TV is non-profit...
Really? The non-profit status that so-called Christian networks claim for themselves, and enjoy, is one of the greatest financial gravy trains ever allowed under U.S. law.
Do you HONESTLY think they don't make A VERY LUCRATIVE LIVING off their "non-profit" enterprise?
Then HOW COME all heads of "Christian" networks live IN RUNAWAY LUXURY?
How come they all have multiple mansions, private airplanes, and other luxury perks?
How come all of them have multi-million dollar net worth?
But they don't sell commercials...
That's right, DUMB Christians!
Instead of charging ADVERTISERS for airtime, THEY CHARGE YOU:
Hence, the INCESSANT pleas for money, all the INVENTED, UNBIBLICAL scams, the worthless books, CD’s and trinkets they sell, and FALSE PROMISES of "prosperity", in exchange for your hard-earned $20 or $50.
In fact, so-called Christian TV is first and foremost A BIG, FAT MONEY-MAKING MACHINE.
They may CALL THEMSELVES "non profit" ‘til their lying faces BEGIN TWITCHING...
They REALLY ARE VERY MUCH FOR PROFIT.
ALL ELSE, including whatever bits and pieces of the "gospel" you may get from it, COMES SECOND, or third or fourth.
They may not sell conventional commercials, BUT THEY DO SELL airtime to all those unscrupulous preachers TO PRESENT THEIR INFOMERCIALS.
That's ON TOP OF the donations they squeeze out of you.
So, don't kid yourselves that THEY DON'T MAKE ANY MONEY.
Don’t delude yourself into thinking that they’ll go “off the air” UNLESS YOU "support" them.
Maybe THEY SHOULD BE off the air.
If they can't tell the truth, if they're SO DISHONEST that they can't even come clean and say, "look, we may talk about Jesus and the Bible, but we're PRIMARILY A BUSINESS", they shouldn't pass themselves off as a ministry, let alone as "Christian".
This unfortunate exploitation has negatively affected both believers and unbelievers:
Believers have ended up following people who are NOT called by God and, therefore, HAVE NO BUSINESS LEADING THEM.
They have fallen prey to unbiblical heresies like the "give in order to get", "name it and claim it", the tithe lie, unbiblical eschatology, and the absolute mockery into which some have turned the gifts of the Spirit BY IMITATING THEM in order to MANIPULATE the hapless viewers.
Unfortunately, it's UNBELIEVERS that have been ALIENATED THE MOST.
MOST UNBELIEVERS have come to associate Jesus, the Bible, and the Christian faith itself, with these crooks' antics, lumping us all together, and thereby DISMISSING the Gospel entirely.
Televangelists CLAIM to be "reaching the world" with the Gospel.
What they're ACTUALLY DOING is reaching DUMB CHRISTIANS -- who already believe the Gospel -- and manipulating THEM into parting with their money.
Charlatan preachers cheat millions out of millions.
But THEIR GREATEST CRIME is ALIENATING the lost FROM Jesus.
It's THE LOST who are deprived of ETERNAL Salvation, in this life and the next through their deceit.

PROPHECIES IN THE PSALMS – PART 2
There seems to be a connection between Psalms 17 – 99 and significant events in Israel during the 20th century.
Likewise, there seems to be a relationship between Psalms 100 – 150 and events in this 21st century.
Let’s see how they stack up, per the 70 weeks prophecy, if Christ’s Second Coming takes place in autumn of 2022, and the Church’s Rapture takes place in spring of 2019:
Psalm 119 (corresponding to Gregorian year 2019) is acrostic and, therefore, UNIQUE.
There’s NO OTHER PSALM like it.
It would, therefore, point TO A UNIQUE TIME in human (and particularly Israel’s) history.
Like "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7)
Like the “Day of the Lord” (which begins with the signs and the Rapture, followed by the tribulation). (Revelation 6:16)
The previous Psalm (118) also points to this as it states “THIS is THE DAY (or Day of the Lord) that the Lord has made: I will rejoice and be glad in it”. (Psalm 118:24)
Each section of Psalm 119 in the original Hebrew begins with each letter of the Hebrew alphabet (aleph, bet, dalet, he, vau… all the way to the last Hebrew letter tav).
This is significant because, as the tribulation is about to begin, Jesus introduces Himself (in the Greek) as “the Alpha and the Omega… who is, who was, and is to come” (Revelation 1:8)
However, in Hebrew (and let’s not forget that Jesus is Jewish and THE ENTIRE BIBLE was written by Hebrews) Jesus would say “I AM the aleph and the tav”.
And that’s exactly what this Psalm expresses.
It is THE LONGEST Psalm.
And it’s mostly about Israel being faithful and obedient to God’s statutes.
The VERY NEXT PSALM (120) begins the Psalms OF ASCENT, which were meant to be sung as Israelites WENT UP (ASCENDED TO) Jerusalem, and then to the Temple itself:
Psalm 120 speaks of Israel being in DISTRESS (TRIBULATION, same word).
Psalm 121 speaks of God supernaturally protecting Israel:
“The LORD SHALL PRESERVE YOU FROM ALL EVIL: he shall PRESERVE YOUR SOUL.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in FROM THIS TIME FORTH, AND EVEN FOREVERMORE. (Psalm 121:7-8)
Psalm 122 (corresponding to Gregorian year 2022) speaks about Israel returning to Jerusalem and to the temple, and REJOICING over such return:
“I rejoiced with those who said to me,
“LET US GO TO THE HOUSE (TEMPLE) of the Lord.”
Our feet are standing in your gates, Jerusalem.” (Psalm 122:1-2)
Not only are these things PRECISELY what happens during the 3½ years, and at the end thereof, THEY ARE IN THE PRECISE ORDER in which they happen.
There are 12 additional Psalms of Ascent (up to Psalm 134).
Psalms 135 to 150, which is the last Psalm, are all sheer praises to Jesus the King.
They fit PERFECTLY with the end-time scenario we envision.
Only an Almighty, all knowing, and ever present God could have told us these things, in precise detail, AND LINE THEM UP WITH the years in our modern calendar, 2,500 YEARS BEFORE the Gregorian calendar EXISTED.

PROPHECIES IN THE PSALMS
When most people think of biblical prophecy, they think of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel or the Book of Revelation. In that context, the Book of Psalms doesn't usually come to mind.
Yet there are many tremendous prophecies in the Psalms, for instance:
Judas's betrayal of our Lord was prophesied in Psalm 69:22-28 and 109:4-8.
The crucifixion of Jesus was prophesied in Psalm 22:16.
His Resurrection in Psalm 16:10.
His ascension to heaven was prophesied in Psalm 8:6, 68:18 and 110:1.
His Second Coming is prophesied in Psalm 2:7-12 and Psalm 24:7-10.
His Millennial Kingdom in Psalm 2:6.
His Deity in Psalm 45:6.
I could go on and on, but there's another aspect of the Psalms worth mentioning:
It sounds a little crazy because our modern Christian (gentile) calendar is NOT the calendar given in Scripture.
And yet there seems to be a direct correlation between many of Psalms 1-99 with events in the 20th century, particularly events that involve Israel.
The late J.R. Church, who is now present with the Lord, deserves some credit for being (to my knowledge) the first to point out this apparent parallel.
For instance Psalm 48:1, which would correspond to Gregorian year 1948, says "great is the Lord and most worthy of praise IN THE CITY OF our God, His holy mountain".
1948 was THE YEAR (May 14, 1948 to be exact) when the State of Israel was born.
Psalm 68 gives an uncanny description of the aftermath of the Six-Day War, which took place in 1967.
It begins with the wonderful statement "let God arise and HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED".
That is precisely what happened.
As we all know, it was during that war that Israel recovered East Jerusalem (the Old City), captured the Golan Heights and the Sinai, all of which are mentioned in this Psalm.
Likewise, Psalms 100-150 appear to relate closely to this 21st century.
Psalm 113 (which would correspond to year, 2013) is the first of the Hallel Psalms.
The Hallel Psalms are 113-118. They are Psalms of praise.
They are recited during most of God's Feasts, including Sukkot.
Here are some highlights:
"Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised.
The LORD is high above all nations and his glory above the heavens".
"Tremble, you earth, at THE PRESENCE OF the Lord, at THE PRESENCE OF the God of Jacob"
Psalm 115:2, 9
"Why should the nations (gentiles) say, Where is now their God?
O Israel, trust you in the LORD: he is their help and their shield".
Psalm 116: 3-4, 13, 16
"The sorrows of death surrounded me, and the pangs of Sheol got hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech you, deliver my soul".
"I will take THE CUP OF SALVATION (Yeshua), and call upon the name of the LORD".
"Precious in the sight of the LORD is THE DEATH OF HIS SAINTS".
Psalm 117:1-2 (The shortest of the Psalms, consisting of only two verses)
"O Praise the LORD, all you nations (gentiles): praise him, all you people.
For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise you the LORD".
Psalm 118:1-2, 14, 18-24, 26, 28-29
"O give thanks unto the LORD; FOR HE IS GOOD: BECAUSE HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER.
2 LET ISRAEL NOW SAY, that his mercy endures forever.
14The LORD is my strength and song, AND IS BECOME MY SALVATION.
18The LORD has chastened me severely: but he has not given me over unto death.
19Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21I will praise you: for you have heard me, and HAVE BECOME MY SALVATION.
22THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED HAS BECOME THE HEAD STONE OF THE CORNER.
23This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
24THIS IS THE DAY which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it".
Do Psalms point to THE YEAR of the Rapture and (3½ years later) of the Second Coming?
We’ll discuss on tomorrow’s message.

TOWER OF BABEL
“Then the angel who was speaking… came forward and said to me, “Look up and see what is appearing.”
I asked, “What is it?”
He replied, “It’s a basket.” And he added, “This is THE APPEARANCE of the people THROUGHOUT THE EARTH.”
(My comment: All in the same basket OF WICKEDNESS).
“Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat A WOMAN!
He said, “THIS IS WICKEDNESS,” and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed its lead cover down on it.
Then I looked up—and there before me were two women, with the wind in their wings! They had wings like those of a stork, and they LIFTED UP THE BASKET (containing WICKEDNESS) BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH.
“Where are they taking the basket?” I asked the angel who was speaking to me.
He replied, “TO BUILD IT A HOUSE (TEMPLE) IN THE LAND OF SHINAR (BABYLON): AND IT (WICKEDNESS) SHALL BE ESTABLISHED, AND SET THERE ON TOP OF ITS OWN BASE” (Zechariah 5:5-11).
The ancient city of Babylon was gradually destroyed between the 6th and first centuries B.C. and lies in ruins to this day.
God’s Word explicitly says that Babylon THE CITY will never again be built, or inhabited, and that it will lie perpetually in ruins (Isaiah 13:19-22; 14:22-23; Jeremiah 25:12).
Indeed, it has remained that way throughout the centuries and to the present time.
However, God NEVER SAID the Tower of Babel would not be rebuilt.
Let me say that again: God said THE ANCIENT CITY of Babylon would be destroyed and never again rebuilt or inhabited. But He never said that about its infamous Tower.
According to Josephus, the Tower of Babel was originally built by Nimrod.
All that is left of the Tower, mentioned in Genesis chapter 11, IS THE BASE OR PLATFORM ON WHICH IT WAS ERECTED.
It is known by the Sumerian name Etemenanki, meaning “temple OF THE FOUNDATION (BASE) of heaven and earth”.
According to the Assyrian Sennacherib, he destroyed what was left of it in the 7th century (689 B.C.).
Nebuchadnezzar claims to have rebuilt it in the 6th century.
Whether these claims are true or just political propaganda, is hard to say, as they are found in extrabiblical literature.
The Tower of Babel symbolizes the first popular revolt against (anti) God, led by the Anti-God Nimrod.
It’s also THE FIRST MAJOR PLACE ON EARTH OPENLY DEDICATED TO SATAN WORSHIP.
The Tower was erected in honor of the Babylonian god Marduk, who is none other than satan, depicted as A SERPENT WITH TWO HORNS.
Upon entering Babylon in 323 B.C., Alexander the Great made elaborate plans to rebuild the Tower.
Those plans were truncated by his premature death at the age of 33.
This is significant because when he emerges from the abyss, as the Antichrist (Revelation 17:8), he will carry out his plan to rebuild the idolatrous Tower.
He will also reinstate OPEN SATAN WORSHIP (Daniel 11:38-39; Revelation 13:4).
Just like God says that Babylon will never again be a city, He says that the Tower of Babel WILL BE REBUILT, albeit briefly, as a monument to evil.

THE TWO BABYLONS
There are TWO, and ONLY TWO, "Babylons" mentioned in the Bible.
They are TWO different CITIES:
The first is ANCIENT, HISTORICAL Babylon, mentioned in various books in the Old Testament. (Isaiah 13:19-20; Psalm 137:1)
The second is MYSTERY Babylon the Great, the Mother of harlots and abominations of the earth" mentioned EXCLUSIVELY in the New Testament Book of Revelation. (Revelation 17:5-6)
All the Babylon prophecies in the Old Testament have ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED in ancient, geographical Babylon.
The judgments that God pronounced against her, her downfall, her destruction, and her utter desolation, have ALL come to pass, EXACTLY as God's Word predicted.
That Babylon, STILL LIES IN RUINS!
You could go to Iraq today (though I strongly advise against it) and SEE the RUINS of ancient Babylon.
Contrary to ALL the prophecy gurus' FUTILE ATTEMPTS to "revive" her, she remains, and WILL REMAIN, destroyed and desolate, as God's Word says.
She'll NEVER be rebuilt ... ever!
All the FALSE TEACHING going on, from self-professed "experts" that says those prophecies refer to the United States, or to New York city, is just that... FALSE:
There's NOTHING, NOT A VERSE, NOT A WORD, in the Bible that links Babylon to the U.S.
The "other" Babylon, is MYSTERY Babylon, mentioned in Revelation chapters 14, 17, 18, and 19.
It's the allegorical name by which the apostle John referred to Rome.
This is clearly expressed in Revelation 17:18.
Again, there's NOTHING that links MYSTERY Babylon (Rome) to either the United States or to New York city.
The U.S. is a NATION.
Ancient Babylon was a great CITY.
It's legendary hanging gardens were one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. It's also where the infamous Tower of Babel was built.
Likewise, Mystery Babylon (Rome) was and still is a great CITY, DESTINED TO BE WIPED OFF THE MAP. (Revelation 18:21)
Ironically, it's called the "eternal city". But eternal it is not.
This “MYSTERY” CITY is soaked in the blood of Jesus’ saints and martyrs. (Revelation 17:6, 18:24)
That CANNOT be said about New York City.
So much for FALSE, UNFOUNDED SPECULATION invented by book SELLERS.
It's ironic that the name "Babel" (babble) from which "Babylon" is derived, means "confusion".
There's a lot of man-invented confusion about Babylon in religious circles, but God is crystal-clear about it:
Ancient Babylon has been destroyed, as He predicted.
Mystery Babylon is about to follow suit.
Neither will EVER reappear.
NOTHING that lying, greedy, mortal men invent, say, do, think, write, or SELL, will change WHAT GOD SAYS.

RAPTURE & 70 WEEKS
Since the Rapture hasn’t happened… yet...
Some Bible illiterates ASSUME – WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT – that the 70 weeks DO NOT lead to Christ’s Second Coming but that they lead to the Rapture, instead.
They have NO BIBLICAL PROOF.
They offer NO VALID ARGUMENTS.
And yet they push their false doctrine capriciously, and WITH UTTER DISREGARD FOR the Word of God.
They want to shove their dumb theory down my throat, and want me to accept it JUST BECAUSE “THEY” came up with it.
I DO NOT BASE ANY TEACHINGS on people’s OPINIONS.
“BECAUSE I SAY SO” has never been a convincing argument and NEVER WILL BE.
I’ve said it before, and repeat it now for the benefit of new readers, and for those who need to hear (or read) something 100 times BEFORE they “get it”:
I have ZERO RESPECT for those who DISRESPECT God’s Word.
Here’s WHAT GOD SAYS:
(Speaking to Daniel through Gabriel)
“SEVENTY WEEKS are DETERMINED UPON YOUR PEOPLE and UPON YOUR HOLY CITY, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, and to anoint the Holy of Holies.” (Daniel 7:24)
GOD clearly says the 70 weeks are determined for “YOUR (in context, Daniel’s) PEOPLE.
Was Daniel ever part of the Church?
No. There was NO CHURCH in the 6th century B.C. (Matthew 16:18)
Daniel’s people were, and are, THE JEWS!
Therefore, the 70 weeks are determined UPON JEWS, NOT gentiles.
And the Church is comprised MOSTLY of GENTILES (Romans 11:25-26)
They are not determined "upon the Church" and, therefore, CANNOT END WITH the Rapture.
Of course, there will be SOME Jews who will turn to Jesus in the very final moments of the Church Age, and they will be raptured (Joel 2:32)
Of course, many WHO TRULY ARE Messianic Jews are already saved and, therefore, PART OF the Church.
But Jews represent A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE of the Body of Christ.
The Church is PREDOMINANTLY gentile. (Revelation 7:9)
The 70 weeks are determined upon Daniel’s people, the Jews, and UPON “YOUR HOLY CITY”.
What was – and is – Daniel’s “HOLY CITY”?
New York? Las Vegas? L.A.? Paris? Rome? Geneva? Chicago? London? Pretoria? Sydney? Cairo?
No. It’s Jerusalem.
Jerusalem already existed in the 6th century B.C. It's where Daniel lived before he was taken captive. It had become Israel’s capital around 1,000 B.C. and still exists today.
The 70 weeks INVOLVE JERUSALEM, as clearly stated in this verse and in the three verses that follow:
“Know therefore and understand that FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMANDMENT TO RESTORE AND TO BUILD JERUSALEM to the Messiah, the Prince, shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: THE STREET SHALL BE BUILT AGAIN, AND THE CHANNEL (ha arutz), even in troublesome times.
26And after threescore and two weeks SHALL MESSIAH BE CUT OFF (WHERE was Messiah “cut off” or killed? IN JERUSALEM), but not for Himself:
And THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME (Titus and the Roman army in 70 A.D.) SHALL DESTROY THE CITY and the temple (WHERE was the temple? IN JERUSALEM); and its end shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK HE SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OFFERING TO CEASE, (WHERE were sacrifices and offerings offered? At the temple IN JERUSALEM)
AND FOR THE OVERSPREADING OF ABOMINATIONS HE SHALL MAKE IT (Jerusalem) DESOLATE, EVEN TO CONSUMMATION (COMPLETE DESTRUCTION), (that’s exactly what the Romans did in 70 A.D. not leaving one stone upon another, Matthew 24:2; Mark 13:2) and that which is determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:25-26-27)
The ENTIRE 70 WEEKS PROPHECY has to do with the building, destruction, and REBUILDING OF JERUSALEM.
HOW, then could the “7 weeks” AND “62 weeks” point to the Rapture of the Church, WHEN LESS THAN 1% of Jerusalem’s population is Christian?
Jerusalem’s Ethnicity (as of 2016):
Total population: 865,721
• Jewish 64%
• Arab 35%
• Christian and others 1%
If the 70 weeks pointed to the Rapture of the Church, AND FEWER THAN 8,700 of Jerusalem’s residents are Christian, then THE NEWS FOR CHRISTIANS WOULD BE GRIM, indeed, since that would mean THAT HARDLY ANY Christians would be raptured.
HOW then could the Church appear IN HEAVEN, BEFORE GOD’S THRONE as “A GREAT MULTITUDE, with garments made white BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, and that NO ONE could number”? (Revelation 7:9, 14)
That would also mean, THAT ANY CHRISTIANS NOT LIVING IN BIBLICAL JERUSALEM WOULD BE “LEFT BEHIND”.
One final point: Daniel 9:24 (quoted above) clearly says the 70 weeks are determined “TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY”.
Prophecy, therefore, will remain “sealed”, at least in part, UNTIL THE END OF THE 70TH WEEK. (Revelation 10:4)
When the 70th week ENDS -- ALL prophecy will have been UNSEALED.
The word for “seal” is chatham, the very same word used in Daniel 12:4 and Daniel 12:9 where God tells Daniel that prophecy will be “sealed” UNTIL “the time of the end”.
Prophecy was sealed in the Book of Daniel.
Prophecy is UNSEALED in the Book of Revelation, by Jesus Himself (Revelation 6:1).
The Rapture of the Church takes place when Jesus OPENS the 6th seal (Revelation 6:12; 7:9).
The Tribulation, reign of Antichrist, and Second Coming occur AFTER THAT, when Jesus lifts the 7th (and FINAL) SEAL. (Revelation 8:1)
If SOME PROPHECY must remain “sealed” UNTIL the end of the 70th week, and the 70 weeks point to the Rapture, HOW THEN, could there STILL REMAIN ONE SEAL TO BE OPENED AFTER the Rapture has taken place?
I rest my case.
There’s NO WAY in heaven, hell or earth that this prophecy pertains to the Rapture.
It pertains to Christ’s Second Coming.
The Rapture is FOR THE CHURCH (mostly for GENTILE believers).
The Second Coming, 3½ years later, is FOR THE JEWS: (Daniel 12:7)
And, subsequently, for ALL of natural Israel…
NO AMOUNT of SPECULATION, CARNAL DESIRE, EGOSTISTICAL SELF-EXALTATION, or WISHFUL THINKING, can change THE TRUTH.
THAT, by the way, is HOW one makes a BIBLICAL case for one’s teaching:
“Let GOD be TRUE, and EVERY MAN A LIAR”.
I got JESUS and the Bible, WHAT have YOU got?

70 WEEKS – THE PURPOSE
“Seventy weeks are determined UPON YOUR PEOPLE and upon YOUR HOLY CITY, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Daniel 7:24)
The 70 weeks concern God’s PEOPLE (the Jews) and their holy City (JERUSALEM).
The PURPOSE OF THE 70 weeks IS TO:
1. Finish transgression (sin).
2. END sins.
3. Bring RECONCILIATION FOR sin.
4. Usher in ETERNAL righteousness.
5. Seal THE VISION AND PROPHECY(Revelation 10:7).
6. Anoint the Holy of Holies, which is NOT just a portion of the temple’s inner sanctum, BUT JESUS HIMSELF, “the ANOINTED One” or “Messiah” or “Christ”. He is the MOST HOLY ONE or Holy of Holies.
QUESTION: WHAT DOES ANY OF THIS HAVE TO DO WITH Antichrist?
The ENTIRE PROPHECY has to do with Messiah Prince removing sin forever, bringing in everlasting righteousness, and WITH anointing Him (Jesus) who IS THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
WHY would ANYONE insert the Antichrist into this mix?
Yes, the 42-month reign of Antichrist takes place during the final 3-1/2 years of the 70 weeks, but the 70 weeks are NOT about Antichrist. They are ENTIRELY about THE Christ.
Why would anyone claim that “the prince that shall come” AND DESTROY Jerusalem and the temple in verse 26 is the Antichrist, WHEN THE ANTICHRIST DOES NOT DESTROY JERUSALEM OR THE TEMPLE? (Zechariah 12:6; Daniel 12:11-12; 2 Thessalonians 2:4)
Besides, this portion of the prophecy WAS TOTALLY FULFILLED IN 70 A.D. when Prince Titus, son of Caesar Vespasian, destroyed Jerusalem and the second Temple, not leaving one stone upon another. (Daniel 9:26)
Titus himself became Roman emperor (succeeded his father Vespasian) from 79-81 A.D.
Unless someone wants to argue that Titus will come back as the Antichrist, such “understanding” of this verse is ludicrous.
Last but not least, Daniel 9:27 DOES NOT, repeat, DOES NOT refer to the "abomination of desolation" that will be set up by Antichrist.
Daniel 8:14, 11:31 and 12:11 DO. So does Matthew 24:15-21.
The Hebrew word used in Daniel 9:27 is shikkutzim which UNEQUIVOCALLY REFERS TO "ABOMINATIONS" (PLURAL).
In the other passages it's shikkutz, which means JUST ONE SPECIFIC, "ABOMINATION" (SINGULAR).
The "abominations" (plural) in Daniel 9:27, that caused the SECOND temple to be destroyed, and its site to remain desolate to this very day, are THE SAME ABOMINATIONS that caused Jesus to throw out the moneychangers from it, and overturn their tables (John 2:14-16), the same ones that caused Him to refer to it as "a den of thieves". (Matthew 21:13; Mark 11:17; Luke 19:46)
Daniel 9:27 has already been fulfilled.
Daniel 8:14, 11:31 and 12:11 are still in our future. So is Matthew 24:15 which refers to THE ABOMINATION of desolation, which will be an image of Antichrist placed inside the third temple.
Verse 27 CANNOT POSSIBLY refer to the Antichrist because:
1. The Hebrew text doesn't support it, since it DOESN'T talk about ONE SPECIFIC abomination but MANY.
2. Daniel 9:27 clearly says that, as a result of those abominations, the second temple would be destroyed (it was) and its site would remain DESOLATE (EMPTY, FORSAKEN) until “THE END” (it has!)
This CANNOT apply to Antichrist since a third temple will be built during his reign. (Revelation 11:1-3)
He will ENTER that temple, sit in it as “god”, and place an image of himself there (Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:4)
3. The ENTIRE 70 weeks prophecy is about Jerusalem and the Messiah Prince.
The Antichrist is not mentioned IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, in the aforementioned verses. And,
4. Galatians 3:17 UNEQUIVOCALLY STATES it was Jesus, NOT ANTICHRIST, who CONFIRMED THE Abrahamic COVENANT in Daniel 9:27.

70TH WEEK – PART 2
For A WHOLE CENTURY the Church HAS BEEN LIED TO with regards to this all-important prophecy.
We have been told ad nauseam that Jesus died at THE END OF the 69th week, leaving the ENTIRE 70th week to be fulfilled in our future.
Is THAT, in fact, WHAT GOD SAID?
This is what’s been written in our Bibles for the past 2,500 YEARS:
“Know therefore and understand, that FROM the going forth of the word to return and to build Jerusalem TO Messiah Prince SHALL BE 7 WEEKS, AND 62 WEEKS...” (Daniel 9:25)
“And AFTER 62 WEEKS shall Messiah BE CUT OFF, but NOT for himself:" (Daniel 9:26)
7 + 62 = 69 weeks:
VERSE 26 HAS SAID, CLEAR AS A BELL, FOR OVER TWO MILLENNIUMS, that it’s AFTER – AFTER – AFTER the 62 (or 69th) week that Messiah is CUT OFF (killed).
Question: if Jesus DIED for our sins AFTER the 62nd (or 69th week), IN WHAT WEEK DID JESUS DIE?
Even a third grader could tell you that AFTER 69 comes 70.
Therefore, Scripture tells us that Jesus DIED DURING the 70th week.
If He DIED DURING the 70th week, then HOW can the ENTIRE 70th week still be in our future?
If He DIED DURING the 70th week, then WHY have we been told ENDLESSLY that He died on week 69, THUS CONTRADICTING GOD?
But verse 27 is even clearer:
“And He (Messiah Prince) shall CONFIRM THE (Abrahamic) COVENANT with many FOR ONE (FINAL, 70TH) WEEK:
And IN THE MIDST OF THE (70th) WEEK He shall bring A SABBATH OF REST to sacrifice and offering…” (Daniel 9:27)
This passage of the Bible has told us for the past 2,500 years, that Jesus would NOT ONLY DIE AFTER the 69th week (DURING week 70), but RIGHT SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF the 70th week.
7-year weeks (shemittas) run from Sukkot (Tishri 15) to Sukkot. (Deuteronomy 31:10)
The “MIDDLE OF” a shemitta week, therefore, is Passover (Aviv/Nisan 15).
Sukkot to Sukkot, 1 year, Sukkot to Sukkot, 2 years, Sukkot to Sukkot, 3 years:
Sukkot (Tishri 15) to Heshvan 15, one month, to Kislev 15, two months, to Tevet 15, three months, to Shevat 15, 4 months, to Adar 15, 5 months to Aviv/Nisan 15 (Passover), 6 months.
Therefore, Passover occurs EXACTLY 3½ years into a shemitta week, as is EXACTLY “the MIDDLE” thereof.
Does Scripture NOT tell us that Jesus DIED ON PASSOVER, EXACTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF A SHEMITTA “WEEK”, AS Daniel foretold? (John 18:39; 19:13-14)
And if Jesus died IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 70TH WEEK, AS SCRIPTURES TELL US, HOW MUCH DOES THAT LEAVE TO BE FULFILLED in our future?
Clearly, the OTHER HALF of the 70th week, which is the future 3½ year tribulation!
The 70 weeks are ENTIRELY FULFILLED when Jesus returns to earth, at the end of those fateful 3½ years.
That is why the 70 weeks lead NOT ONLY TO HIS FIRST COMING, but also TO HIS SECOND COMING.
Therefore, there’s NO WAY IN HEAVEN, HELL OR EARTH that the entire 70th week remains to be fulfilled.
Only the final 3½ years of the 70 weeks remain to be fulfilled.
At the end thereof, THERE’S JESUS RULING THIS EARTH.

DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK
“I see that YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN Daniel’s 70th week” some brainwashed nitwit will write.
I TOTALLY BELIEVE IN Daniel’s 70th week.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who believes in the 70th week MORE than yours truly.
WHAT I DO NOT BELIEVE is that THE ENTIRE 70TH WEEK lies in our future.
Again: WHAT I DO NOT BELIEVE is that THE ENTIRE 70TH WEEK lies in our future.
ONLY HALF OF THE 70TH WEEK (3½ YEARS) LIES IN OUR FUTURE.
That “HALF WEEK” (those 3½ YEARS) IS THE FUTURE TRIBULATION.
This ISN’T EVEN OPEN for discussion: it can be PROVEN – beyond ANY doubt.
If people would only pay attention TO WHAT GOD ACTUALLY SAYS, INSTEAD OF BLINDLY ACCEPTING what their lying religious heroes FALSELY CLAIM that “God says”.
There isn’t ONE Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, that says that THE ENTIRE 70th week is yet to be fulfilled.
There are, on the other hand, 10 SCRIPTURES (10!!!) that clearly say it’s the FINAL HALF (3½ YEARS) OF THE 70TH WEEK THAT REMAIN TO BE FULFILLED. (Daniel 9:25; 8:14; 9:27; 12:7; 12:11,12; Revelation 11:1-3; 12:6, 14; 13:5)
And yet brainwashed religionists PREFER THE WORD OF THEIR SINFUL, MORTAL DENOMINATION’S founder, OR MORTAL, SINFUL PROPHECY GURU, OVER GOD’S WORD.
THE FIRST HALF OF DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK WAS ALREADY FULFILLED BY JESUS, DURING HIS FIRST COMING, WITH HIS CRUCIFIXION, RESURRECTION and ASCENSION (Daniel 9:26.27)
That leaves ONLY HALF A WEEK (THE FINAL 3½ YEARS) -- OF DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK -- to be fulfilled with the Second Coming of Messiah Prince.
We will PROVE THIS, beyond the slightest doubt, on our next message.

GOD TALKS: FINAL PART - CONTRITE & HUMBLE
“For you DO NOT DESIRE sacrifice; else would I give it: you do not delight in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART, O GOD, THOU WILT NOT DESPISE.” (Psalm 51:16-17)
If the lines of communication between God and you seem to be clogged, if revelation isn’t freely flowing, if you feel that your sins have alienated you from the Holy One, you need to PRAY Psalm 51 – FROM THE DEPTHS OF YOUR BEING.
I did not say that you need to READ Psalm 51, although there’s no harm to anyone in doing so.
I said you need to PRAY that Psalm –from the depths of your being.
The ONE SURE WAY I know of re-establishing deep communion with the Almighty, and opening those spiritual frequencies, is to come before His Throne WITH TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS, and with a CONTRITE (repentant) and HUMBLE heart.
If the Church spent 15 minutes a day bowed down (in spirit) before the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, WHILE HUMBLING ITSELF and acknowledging ITS TOTAL DEPENDENCE on His forgiveness and Grace, we would have A SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER and MORE SPIRITUAL CHURCH.
We’d have guidance and be led by His Holy Spirit, instead of stumbling all over the place like blind and clueless religious bots.
HOW can we call Jesus our “Lord” and NEVER SPEND ANY time with Him?
HOW can Jesus BE our “Lord” when WE DON’T CARE, and DON’T EVEN SPEND TWO SECONDS thinking about what our “Lord” WANTS?
If we really want to “hear” from God, our part is to SEEK HIM WITH ALL our hearts and to HUMBLE OURSELVES before Him.
He’ll take care OF THE REST.

GOD TALKS: PART TWO
If God EVER stopped talking, the universe would COLLAPSE into NOTHINGNESS. (Hebrews 1:3)
He is CONSTANTLY TALKING to His entire Creation, including EVERY PARTICLE in the universe.
It is His Word that HOLDS those particles together (Colossians 1:17)
So much for the myth that He gives His children “the silent treatment”!
Jesus talks in SO MANY WAYS and in such varied frequencies! (Proverbs 1:20)
Problem is most people AREN’T INTERESTED in what He is saying.
How many people do you know who spend ANY TIME AT ALL seeking God’s Face and His direction for their lives?
Also, Jesus is NOT going to tell you necessarily WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR, but what He WANTS TO SAY.
Even those few individuals, who claim to seek His Will, are often misled by their own desires and biases.
They want to CONTROL GOD and what He actually says.
If we COULD “control Him”, He wouldn’t BE God!
In fact, He’d be pretty useless!
Hearing Jesus takes commitment, diligence, and, above all, HONESTY:
“NOT MY WILL, but THINE be done” (Luke 22:42)
He PROMISES that those who seek Him WILL FIND HIM (they will “hear” His Voice), as long as they seek Him WITH ALL their hearts. (Jeremiah 29:13)

GOD TALKS: ALL THE TIME
I’m so bored and tired of hearing religious people accuse God of WITHHOLDING communication from His children.
They use unfortunate clichés like “going through the valley”, or experiencing the “dark night of the soul” to describe long periods IN WHICH THEY FAILED to hear God.
It’s NOT that God suddenly stopped talking to them: it’s that they STOPPED LISTENING TO HIM.
I have some questions for these irresponsible charlatans WHO BLAME GOD FOR EVERYTHING while shunning all personal responsibility:
1. HOW can God EVER "stop talking" to us when He left us His INERRANT Word, recorded for posterity?
Unless you want to argue that you've COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED every bit of Wisdom and revelation contained in His written Word, such accusation is absurd.
And if you claim to have exhausted it, you're full of it...
2. If God, by His OWN ADMISSION, is THE WORD and THE WORD is God (John 1:1), WHY ON EARTH would THE WORD stop communicating with His children, when THAT IS, BY DEFINITION, WHAT THE WORD DOES?
3. If God suddenly and capriciously STOPS talking to His children, WHY WOULD JESUS MAKE STATEMENTS SUCH AS “if ANYONE has ears to hear, LET THEM HEAR”? (Mark 4:23)
See also Matthew 13:15, 43; Revelation 2:7, 17, 29; 3:6, 22; 13:9.
Such statements lack credibility (i.e., would make Jesus A LIAR) UNLESS God were speaking to these people constantly.
Again, the problem is NOT that our Lord STOPS TALKING TO US, it’s THAT WE HAVE STOPPED LISTENING.
Let's make this simple and easy for everyone:
Whenever there’s “a problem” between you and God, IT’S YOUR FAULT.
Again: Whenever there’s “a problem” between you and God, IT’S YOUR FAULT.
The sooner we realize, accept, and CONFESS that fact the better off we’ll be.
God’s NOT the problem: WE ARE.

WORLD IN DISARRAY
While there’s been turmoil on earth since the fall of man, there’s never been a period of such rampant confusion, misinformation and polarization.
I remember when living in a democracy meant open and free exchange of ideas, believing most people would support the ideas they perceived as better.
Such premise no longer holds true.
With the brainwashing of students from pre-school, elementary, middle school, and all the way up to colleges and universities, not to mention through the so-called “entertainment” industry, we can no longer afford such objectivity.
Brainwashing leads to self-righteousness, and self-righteousness leads to “there’s nothing to discuss: I’m good and you’re evil”.
There’s only OUR WAY, and those who disagree are AUTOMATICALLY labeled “murderers”, “racists”, “fear mongers”, “inciters of violence” at best, compared to Hitler or Mussolini at worst.
Even brain addled Hollywood “celebrities”, like Michael Moore, who think a measure of fame qualifies them as pundits on the economy, international politics, trade, immigration; terrorism, national defense, and effective diplomacy are using APOCALYPTIC TERMS to describe current conditions.
It’s interesting that these individuals all sense that something monumental and very consequential sits on the horizon, but that they think the answer lies in surrendering more and deeper to the very dark and negative forces that got us here in the first place.
NOT ONE of these public figures speaks in terms of introspection.
NOT ONE seeks to self-examine and MAKE SURE that THEY are on the right track.
NOT ONE is willing to humble himself or contemplate, even remotely, the possibility that HE or SHE MIGHT BE WRONG.
And NOT ONE is willing to ACKNOWLEDGE JESUS and His sovereignty over world events.
They seek SOLUTIONS in every nonsensical, radical ideology – ALL THE WHILE REJECTING the ONLY SOLUTION there is.
