| As reported by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, persecution of the Jewish community in Caracas, Venezuela is increasing. It has gotten worse over the past few years with Hebrew schools being targeted. Some are talking about going home to Israel. God has often used persecution to drive the Jews back to the Holy Land. The Jews who got to Israel after World War II said that clearly the Lord used Hitler as a whip to drive them back to the Promised Land!|
Los Angeles: Anti-Israeli marches with swastikas painted on Israeli flags that read "Upgrade to Holocaust 2.0."
Amsterdam: Marches in the streets: "Gas the Jews!"
France: Increasing of firebombing of synagogues, Jewish children beaten in the streets.
Fort Lauderdale, Fl.: Demonstrators shouting, "Go back to the oven! You need a big oven, that's what you need!"
Denmark: School principles have told Jewish parents that their children are unwelcome because of an offense to Muslim students.
Sweden: Demonstrators shouting, "The Jews should leave!"
Quebec: Over eighty professors at colleges and universities have supported boycotting the Jewish State. They say Israel has caused destructive attacks on children.
Things are getting worse, not better. – Dr. Mal Couch

| It's not going; it is gone! It is all over for this country. Evil is becoming more evil, and, we're now like the European nations—socialistic and virtually anti-God! American Socialist Party leader, Norman Thomas, said in a 1944 speech that America will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of "liberalism," it will adopt fragments of the socialistic program, and, one day it will be socialistic. He went on to say: "I no longer need to run as a Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform." Britain's Margaret Thatcher said: "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."|
Where is the source of the sewage that is destroying and polluting America? It is our secular and state universities. They are pumping into the minds of our young people, anti-Christianity, evolutionary, socialistic, and liberalistic philosophies, etc. They should receive an A because they have done a great job and accomplished what they sat out to do—turn this nation into a communistic-like, socialistic nation! -- Dr. Mal Couch

| It is reported that the Chinese are getting tired of purchasing our government bonds and giving America a bail out from our accesses. We are now a consumer nation and not a producing country. "As you can imagine, this gives China tremendous leverage over us, making it the dominant player in the New World Order." China may soon grow tire of propping America up. They soon may stop financing our deficits, but if so, who will?|
No one will be capable of doing what they are doing, which means, America will have to start up the printing press and turn out more money, which in turn, will cause massive inflation!
It is my opinion that there is no way out of our national mess! We will make the 1929 Stock Market crash look like a Sunday school picnic. If you watch some of the news TV shows, you'll see America laughing and entertaining itself all the way to the edge of the cliff. The average citizen just does not get it! This is a judgment of God coming upon us, but not just us, the entire world will be looking for that strong man (Obama?) to get us out of the mess. Meanwhile, we will become slaves to the system, to the government, and to socialism. Our freedoms are slipping away quickly.
Though applied to the tribulation, 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 gives us the set-up that leads to that terrible period. "God will send upon them (the world) a deluding spirit (influence) so that they might believe the lie, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness." We need to "gain the glory," hold the traditions, "comfort and have good hope by grace," and "comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word" (vv. 13-17). – Dr. Mal Couch

| Kissinger told CNBC that Obama is the architect of a "New World Order." He added, "It's a great opportunity, it isn't just a crisis." No one would have ever expected such a statement from him. He has to some degree been fairly conservative in his views. But such a statement is the sign of the times. In my opinion there is a satanic blindness going on that is unexplainable from a rational point of view.|

|Dr. Couch: Enclosed is my year's support for the yearly Gathering Storm CD. In our church library I'm placing your CDs when I am finished with them. They are used by visiting missionaries to borrow also. You now have worldwide coverage! Keep on punching holes in the devil's ever-increasing fog of delusion! – For Jesus' sake!|
Dr. Couch: Thank you for all the great information! – website reader
Dr. Couch: I've wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your timely biblical messages that cut through the fog of our humanistic culture today. Keep up the good work! I've enclosed a small amount to keep your wheels turning! – Press on!
Dr. Couch: Please keep the Gathering Storm CD coming! Enclosed is a donation! – Idaho
Dr. Couch: I've passed out ten of your new book "For The Cause Of Zion". I couldn't put it down! Another friend thinks it is outstanding. Everything you write is right on! We are moving to the edge of the abyss, as you put it. And as you have said, I do not believe we will ever see a "conservative" Republican Congress again in Washington. The forces of evil and liberalism has now split this nation with two citizenships. Those who want all the socialist give-aways, and those who understand what real freedom is all about. Christians need to hold on to their hats! Only the gospel will change the hearts and minds of our citizens! – Texas

| Someone just sent me a series of photos of punk rockers mutilating and cutting their bodies, and stretching their lips and ears with cans and other objects. The pictures are so gross I would not share them with anyone else.|
I have been around the world and visited backward places (Africa, South America, etc.) where terrible things like this were happening. I saw people who, without a doubt, were demon possessed! There is no question that those in these pictures are demon possessed. I have never seen anything like this in the U.S. before. In other words, such possession is now with us in this country! Besides the mutilation, the eyes of the kids in these pictures were glazed over from drug usage. They were the personification of evil. We have arrived, and there is no where else to go but down!
I could not help but think of Leviticus 19:28 and 21:5. God told Moses that Israel "shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead, nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord" (19:28). Then He added, "You shall not make any cuts in your flesh" (21:5). While some of such verses are aimed at the priesthood, never mind, no one is to defile himself in such a manner.
We are there! We have arrived. The cultural apostasy is here!

| I just received in the mail a six page, four-color brochure on a Christian counseling center, that is sponsoring a weekend retreat, which is eaten up with secular psychology and contemporary feel-good language! The brochure uses such expressions as:|
Self Worth, Surviving Sexual Abuse, Post-Abortive Healing, Healing Path, To Connect With, Your Journey, Healing and Change, Creating Boundaries, Breaking Through Layers of Hurt, Step out of your Comfort Zone, etc.
And then the ultimate of promises: "Become the Miracle," "A weekend that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER!"
Now the surprise! Christ is mentioned no where in the brochure. God is mentioned only three times, but actually only twice, because He is mentioned two times in the same sentence! Where did the Lord go? How is He involved in this so-called process of "healing" the brochure advertises?
Of course, all of the advertising pictures of people in this publication are smiling like crazy! They are receiving instant help and immediate change! The only word in the brochure that may reflect something about the Word of God, is the one use of the term Forgiveness. Otherwise, you would not think this seminar is sponsored by a Christian organization.
Secular psychology puts emotional and spiritual issues in the same box along with the same need for physical healing. You really have a spiritual disease! You can be cured by psychological methods and manipulation. The Word of God is secondary to the process of growing up and maturing spiritually.
The folks who are behind this organization are more than likely integrationists. One of the "big" seminaries in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has courses that they claim "integrates" psychological methods and the Bible to bring about "healing." They use the expression of "spoiling the Egyptians." That is, as Moses left Egypt with the riches of the Egyptians, so Christians can use secular psychological principles borrowed or taken from the world. This is a misleading and foolish comparison. God is not telling us to use worldly "spiritual" principles and mix them with the spiritual principles of His Word in order to receive spiritual healing!
We are not going to stop such false teaching in our churches. Secular psychology is rampant in our schools, and a new generation just does not understand what the differences are about! There is no hope. We are not going to turn things around. The apostasy just marches forward without any stopping!

| Dick Morris in the January 20 issue of Human Events, writes: "We enter Obama's administration as free enterprise, market-dominated, laissez-faire America. We will shortly become like Germany, France, Britain, or Sweden—a social democracy in which the government dominates the economy, determines private-sector priorities and offers a vastly expanded range of services to many more people and much higher taxes.|
Obama will accomplish his agenda of "reform" under the rubric of "recovery." Using the electoral mandate bestowed on a Democratic Congress by restless voters and the economic power given his administration by terrified Americans, he will change our country fundamentally in the name of "lifting the depression." His stimulus package won't do much to shorten the downturn—although they will make it less painful—but they will do a great deal to change our nation." – Dick Morris
In many ways, we cannot blame Obama for what is happening. It was mainly the younger, liberal crowd that put him into office, those who have been trained in our social-agenda, liberal public schools. These institutions, from first grade through the government run state universities, propagate inclusivism, and almost downright communism. Morally, our schools are spiritually and morally bankrupt. In teacher training schools, little kids in kindergarten are taken to the same bathrooms where they do their business openly before the other kids. The teachers being trained are told this is alright! In some universities, there are now not just coed dorms but coed rooms available for the students! While all of this was beginning to happen, the Christian community said nothing. The only excuse is that, often we did not know what was happening until it was too late!
The younger crowd, even some who claim to be Evangelical Christians, now see no problem with abortion nor homosexuality. They are bringing into our churches the gospel of Green because we "must save the planet!" We are the pilots of our own destiny. There is no God!
There is no turning back. We are into the prophesied apostasy! – Dr. Mal Couch

| Everyone sees it but no one can stop it! America is rapidly moving into a form of slavery! We are marching to socialism, a system that denies freedom to the individual and removes God from the equation. Europe, and Nazi Germany, was already wading deep in socialism, in the 1930s. And this became part of the trap that killed thousands and thousands of Jews in the middle of World War II.|
In 1941, thousands of poor Jews were herded into the old fortress city of Theresienstadt, Czechoslovakia. They were told they were going to a comfortable resort to escape the ravages of the war that was coming on Germany. The Czechs were driven out of the town, and the Jews were jammed by the thousands into the apartments that were vacated by the Czechs. It quickly became a horrible nightmare. Dozens were crammed into small rooms with sewage backing up and water running out. They began to die by the thousands. They could at least go outside in the town's parks and sleep in the open when the weather was warm.
But Hitler wanted to trap all the Jews of Germany. He made a social contract with the wealthy Jews who still had bank accounts and property. He would give to them full social benefits if they signed over to the state all their finances and property. They would receive free housing, free medical care, all the food and provisions they needed. While it may be that they had no choice, nevertheless, they all signed up to allow the state full control of their lives. These remaining rich Jews would join the poor Jews who had been shipped to Theresienstadt.
Carrying only one bag, they were herded on trains and joined the other Jews in the city "prison camp" of the town of Theresienstadt. Instantly, they realized they had been fooled and were trapped in this transit city while on the way to other death camps. They had been promised a comfortable life in the "Reich Home" for the aged. In reality, the Jews were hoodwinked into signing over their properties and assets to the evil Nazi S.S. organization that would soon be shipping them east to the crematoriums.
But to mask their sinister intentions, the Nazis developed the city into a "show camp" to show the world how well the Jews were being treated. Danish and Red Cross camera crews were allowed into the town in order to document the kindness in the way the Jews were being cared for. They were shown as "vacationing" around the swimming pool, doing light work, and establishing clubs and music groups. Often when the cameras were stopped, the Jews right then were herded onto trains and taken directly to the death camps!
Theresienstadt became the symbol for the ultimate of blinding a people to the most sinister of government manipulation and socialism. Once a people believes their salvation is in the government, they lose their freedoms. – Dr. Mal Couch

| At the President's inauguration, Rick Warren prayed but said nothing about Christ as part of the closing in his benediction, lest anyone was offended! The homosexual Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, merely prayed in the name of "the God of many understandings." The atheists got a mention. Obama described America as "a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus—and nonbelievers." This pleased the atheists who are trying to organize themselves into something of a new denomination!|
One of the Muslim speakers at an inaugural prayer meeting is sought after by federal prosecutors as having ties to Hamas, the Palestinian terrorists.
No one blinked or complained at this drastic change in our traditions that have sustained America as being founded as a Christian nation, mainly European, Protestant, Reformation, in its makeup. That is now all gone, buried, and forgotten. Especially among our young people who have been brainwashed by going through our socialistic, federally-controlled public schools. There will be no return! Our nation is divided between the younger folks who have a completely new mind-set and want to keep it as it is—thank you very much! –Dr. Mal Couch

| Conservatism has its roots in the principles laid out in Scripture. At the base, conservatism clings to eternal rules and principles. Morality is always the same—what is right does not change. And what is right really does not come from the soul of humanity but from the laws of God. While conservatives can slip and fall, there is always something firm to go back to. The conservative confesses, apologizes, and returns to the ever tried-and-true directives laid out in the Bible.|
That is all now put to rest. The conservative Republican Party will never again be in power. The mind-set of the younger American has been changed. The illegal foreigners got to America illegally in order to receive the American bounty without labor. They know how their bread was buttered—by the Democratic Party. Socialism is going to give them everything they need and want—at no charge to them, thank you, but paid for by others who work hard and believe in the eternal principles of right and wrong!
The apostle Paul laid out the seeds of democracy many generations ago when he wrote:
Follow our example. We did not act in an undisciplined manner among you, nor did we eat anyone's bread, without paying for it, but with labor and hardship we kept working night and day so that we might not be a burden to any of you. … If anyone will not work, neither let him eat. … We exhort [them] in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread" (2 Thess. 3:6-12).
Though this command was stated for the Christian community, the principle is the same for what one would do in the culture!
America has turned the corner into socialism, just as Europe did many decades ago. In the so-called free bailout now being forced upon the nation by the socialistic Democratic Congress, they have included millions of dollars going to free contraceptives, mainly to be given out to the illegal foreigners and minorities. In other words, morality is no longer controlled by the individual but by the government. And the government is going to open the door for many, many more to live immorally but not to have to face their own consequences. Medicaid free-bees will be increased, which means that the people who earn less will now have more free amenities and free health care. This will blunt personal responsibility and give such folks a free ride without sacrifice and work. No more will Americans be required to struggle and fight for what they need and want. It is all guaranteed by the government!
And again, as a reminder, those who are getting the free ride will all vote for the Democratic Party that provided it all. So long, Republican Party! Hello, American socialism! –Dr. Mal Couch

| While in America, only 9 percent of the population look on Jews unfavorably, that figure has reached 46 percent in Europe, and growing. The Muslim population in European countries is larger and more radical. (In France, 10 percent of the people are Muslim and Arab.) In Spain, the figure before 2005 was only about half that figure, around 25 percent who hated the Jewish population. Now it is the same as in the rest of Europe, 46 percent.|
Several weeks ago, the largest anti-Israeli rally was held in Spain, organized by the Socialist Workers party. In Barcelona, demonstrators burned an Israeli flag with a swastika in place of the Star of David. The Star of David is the emblem for Jesus, Israel's Messiah! Synagogues as well as Jewish homes in Britain, France, Belgium and Scandinavia, have been firebombed. In Denmark, children have been refused enrollment in some schools for fear of Muslim retaliation.
There are 17 million Muslims in Europe over against only 1.8 million Jews. Today, the Jewish people in both Europe and in Israel are far from perfect. They are taking on the mores and the cultural sins of the Gentile world. Nevertheless, they are God's earthly people whom He loves and is regathering back to the Holy Land. Their eyes are yet blinded but someday they will be opened. In fact, they are now coming to Christ, some 15,000 in Israel alone. Remember what Paul said, "From the standpoint of the gospel they [the Jewish people] are enemies for your sake [you Gentiles], but from the standpoint of God's election (choosing) they are beloved for the sake of the fathers [Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob], for the gifts and the calling of God are unchangeable [irrevocable]" (Rom. 11:28-29). --Dr. Mal Couch
P.S. Is it not interesting how little of this persecution we hear about in America? Our news media just does not care!
