|Why have we opened our borders to "the sons of the East" (the Muslims and others) who detest our Christianity and hate the Jewish people who live in America, and who have been so protected up until now? It is because we are stupid and because outright religious liberals control the policies of our nation. Too, our leaders do not know the history of America. While we are not a theocracy, the nation was still founded by Christians for Christian purposes. |
The Puritans did not come here for gold and glitter. They left the civilized world of England and even Europe (they went from England to Holland to these shores) in order to have Christian liberty. God then blessed them with prosperity because of their intentions to think of Him first before they thought of prosperity.
Most of the farmers and fisherman had nothing when they arrived. During the first winter almost half of them perished from the cold environment. But they carved out a nation and made it prosperous. They did not come because the country was at first prosperous, as so many who are forcing their way into our nation!
Now we have opened the flood gates to allow folks with a Latin mentality or a Middle Eastern paganism to invade our nation, to take advantage of our prosperity. My question, why do they not remain in their own country and make it prosperous! They are here to take what we have developed and generally speaking, they contribute nothing! The foreign law-breakers are costing us billions to support them. They are importing immorality, drug cartels, murder, and raw hatred against Christianity.
What is happening to us reminds me of the Midianites and the Amalekites in the book of Judges. When the Israelites had developed the land, these two peoples would come in during harvest time and take what the Israelis had sown. Because of "the evil" of the Jews, "the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian for seven years" (Judges 6:1). He is giving us into the hands of the enemy because of the sins of America.
When the Israelis had sown the land "the Midianites and the Amalekites came "with the sons of the east" to go against the Jews (v. 3). Again, think of America! They came up "against" the Jews "and destroyed the produce of the earth," and "left no sustenance in Israel as well as no sheep, ox, or donkey" (v. 4). They brought their livestock to eat up the crops "like locusts for number, both they and their camels were innumerable, and they came into the land to devastate it" (v. 5).
As some in America are doing today, "the sons of Israel cried to the Lord on account of Midian" (v. 8). God sent a prophet who said to the people: I brought you out of Egypt "from the house of slavery" (v. 8) "from the hands of all your oppressors, and dispossessed them before you and gave you their land" (v. 9).
The Amalekites were the descendants of Esau and the Midianites were the descendants of Abraham's wife after Sarah, Keturah (Gen. 25:1-4). What goes around comes around! The Muslims are distantly related to the Jewish people! And they are bringing woe to this nation as well as to the Jews in the Holy Land. The troubles Israel had came upon them because they "had not obeyed the Lord" (Judges 6:10). So with this nation! – Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|C. Rushton has an outstanding article in the May edition of "The Prophetic Observer." The present administration is turning rapidly against the nation of Israel. It reminds me of Jeremiah 30:17 where the enemies of Israel speak of her as an outcast and they cry: "It is Zion, no one cares for her." A judgment is just over the horizon and America will pay when she officially turns against God's earthly people.|
This is all going against what is written in Zechariah 2:8: "For thus says the Lord of hosts; after the glory, He sent me unto the nations which spoiled you (Israel): for he that touches you touches the apple of His eye." God has a great promise for all nations and peoples in Psalm 122:6: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you (Israel)."
I am convinced that it is all over! We are just putting out fires and things will never be turned back! –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|Why do we assume America has a special place in God's prophetic Word? This is simply another nation on the map of the world—though without doubt, a nation with more Christians than any other nation has had. America is not a theocracy nor is it special to be exempt as a sinful country which will deserve God's judgments—when it is due the same.|
Psalm 96 reminds us: "Say among the nations, 'The Lord reigns: He will judge the peoples [of the earth] with equity'" (v. 10). And, "Let the heavens be glad, ... Before the Lord, for He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth, He will judge the world in righteousness, and the peoples in His faithfulness" (vv. 11b-13).
God is going to judge all nations, even America! We are not special. As with Israel in the past, if we sin, we will be judged. And there is nothing in this country that would make God give is a special dispensation and let us off the hook. –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|Arizona put into place tough immigration laws that have caused those who are Hispanic to scream and cry. But why? If there are millions coming into this country illegally why should there be resistance to sending these people back where they came from?|
Notice that the detractors talk about everything but the issue involved. (1) Well, this is profiling, (2) Or, it is wrong to check the identification of those who are here breaking our laws.
Why is the real issue not discussed? These people are law breakers, period. But this issue is not brought up or discussed. Why? Because of Psalm 97:10-11 which says: "Hate evil, you who love the Lord, who preserves the souls of His godly ones. ... Light is sown like seed for the righteous." There is no hatred of evil and hatred for what is not right!
It is not blue-eyed blond grandmothers from Denmark who are sneaking into America illegally. It is Hispanics, and if that is profiling, so be it! They are the ones who are evil criminals. Let's call it what it is! Why would we want law breakers in this nation illegally?
Some years back, I traveled overseas some forty times in one year. And in every country I visited I had to be ready to show my passport, for no other reason, then the fact that I was to show it! Period! This is a sovereign nation and we all must obey the laws. And law breakers have no privileges. Only the citizens have rights. Everyone else happens to be visitors and are here at our pleasure.
Both President Bush and now Barack Hussein Obama seem to be doing nothing about protecting our nation from the infiltration of law breakers pouring into America. There must be a reason for their lack of concern to solve a simple problem. It is certainly a disregard for the concerns of the citizens! –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|When and where did the greatest sea disaster take place? It was with the sinking of the German ocean liner Wilhelm Gustlof in the Gulf of Danzig at the end of World War II. Over 9,000 people perished when the ship was hit with a torpedo by a Russian submarine in the terrible cold winter of January 1945. |
Because there was so many other issues in the news at that time the sinking was hardly reported in the papers. Few heard about the tragedy. The ship was filled with women and children, wounded German soldiers, and German submarine cadets on their way home to Germany. From Denmark, they were all attempting to escape the Russians who were closing in on both the German army and on civilians who were faced with the coming wrath of the Russian military for their destruction of Russia and the killing of some twenty million Russians during the war.
As the ship was sinking thousands were trapped below deck and died (as the Germans said—like rates) as the vessel went down in the frigid waters of the North Sea. Many thousands of wounded soldiers were helplessly trapped in their hospital beds as the ship rolled over. Only a handful of people survived the sinking. The sailors of the Russian sub did not know the Gustlof was filled with so many civilians, though that probably would not have stopped the attack on the ship anyway. As the Russians were driving the Germans back home, they simply killed almost every German they came in contact with on their march westward. And earlier, as the Germans invaded Russia, they by their cruel hateful policy against God's people, automatically killed every Jew they came in contact with. On both sides, human sin was at fault throughout the conflict, and yet the bottom line was the judgment of God on both nations for their rejection of the Lord and His revelation in His Word.
Germany was rampant with racial superiority and evolution, and Russia was living out social evolution with its own brand of atheism and the denial of the Lord. As far as was recorded, no one cried out for God as the ship sank into the deep. The number who died was almost four times more than in any other sinking in maritime history. God keeps good records and no nation will escape its rejection of the Lord in our world—even America! –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|The diplomas of Trinity University in San Antonio has always had the phrase "The Year of Our Lord" on it. But now the Muslim students who are graduating are in protest that this phrase is insulting to them and must be removed. |
Well, you guessed right! The school, a part of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination, will probably removed the statement. The "other" students originally said "no" but now the decision is turning the other way. Many of the alumni had protested the proposal, but momentum toward the change appears to be certain.
Do not blame the Muslims. Their agenda is to take over America and drive Christianity out, and, we're letting them do so. Trinity is a liberal school and to allow the change could be expected. Christianity long ago has departed from the campus, and it has in so many other institutions. Conviction is gone, and as promised by our President, "change" is what the new America is all about.
We are in a free fall of destruction in America. And this is clearly a judgment from on High! We are getting what we deserve. Why should God have mercy on us and turn things around? There is no repentance or confession of our sins. Woe to the next generation. It will be minority controlled, Muslim influenced, and socialistic in policy. The great American "experiment" has perished. It did not last, as predicted by some of the founding fathers! –

|How did all of us some generations back survive spankings in school when we goofed and misbehaved? Our little personalities were not harmed! Many Christian parents are into secular psychology and don't want to hurt little junior's personalities. These Christian parents go against the Word of God when it says: "Do not hold back discipline from the child, although you smite him with the rod, he will not die, you shall smite him with the rod, and deliver his soul from Sheol" (Prov. 23:13-14).|
The Temple Texas public school has gone back to spanking. The yuppy thirty year old dumb secular psychologically influenced parents (who went through the government school system) do not know their Bibles nor do they know how to spank their children when they need it. For the most part, the parents in Temple have approved, thank the Lord. And the statistics have proved God correct! The fourteen public schools in Temple have seen a dramatic change with fewer discipline problems. Texas has the most schools using spanking and it is making a difference in the classrooms.
Interestingly, the issue has spelled over to house training dogs. Many have to hire "experts" to come in to house train their animals because they are too stupid to use a rolled up paper to swat their dogs and stop them from soiling the floor. I got my first dog when I was ten. My father showed me how to swat her when she did her business on the floor. In ten minutes she was trained, disciplined, and we all had peace in the house. What is wrong with the younger crowd? Again, secular psychology. –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|I knew this but it was just brought to my attention again lately. Most Southern Baptist Churches argue that each church is autonomous and not controlled by the convention. They accept Rick Warren as one of their pastors but they have no objection with what he holds to or teaches.|
A local SB pastor recently said "Each church is independent." But then went on and said, "However, we do not accept alien baptism as a denomination." But wait a minute! I thought they were all independent churches? Something seems wrong here!
They obviously do not tell the truth on this subject! How insulting also to call the baptism from another group "an alien baptism." How wrong they are to label baptism this way! Who do they think they are?
They are far more concerned about procedures over doctrinal truth! Here in the Waco area, all SBs give praises to Baylor University but they fail to deal with the issue of the gross liberalism at that school! They all want their kids to attend Baylor, but never mind, they do not address all the evil liberal teaching, such as evolution, they will hear there. It is this kind of blindness that is killing our Protestant belief among evangelical Christians!

|Our President, Barack Hussein Obama, was photographed holding a book he was reading that was written by a Muslim entitled "The Post-American World." This is no joke and no hoax. You may be able to find the photo on one of the web sites. |
Also, the President gave the most horrid "Easter" radio message in which he said that this "celebration" proves the unity of the human spirit for all people. He said nothing about Christ's resurrection! While they were not perfect, we had several presidents recently that without doubt were believers in the Lord: Reagan and Bush.
Our nation is being split and torn apart. You need to be prepared for what is coming next.

|The British Army was under the gun in World War II in North Africa with the Germans, and because of the military leadership of their most able combat leader, General Erwin Rommel. The Germans were winning—but then along came the little lowly fly!|
In the German Army camps the troops would just go out a few feet in the desert, go to the toilet, and then not cover up their excrement with a spade. Millions of flies would breed and come back and land on the food the soldiers were eating. General Rommel became terribly sick with stomach illness because of the flies landing on the troop's excrement and then returning to the food they were eating in the open air. .
Rommel had not read Deuteronomy 23:9-13 that says, when the troops are in the field, they are to cover up their excrement with a shovel. "You shall also have a place outside the camp and go out there, and you shall have a spade among your tools, and it shall be when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and shall turn to cover up your excrement" (vv. 12-13).
But the British Army knew the command of Moses. They built small porta-potties to go to the toilet with. They then bagged their waste and the flies could not breed. Rommel because so sick that he had to be flown back to Berlin to recuperate from the illness produced by the flies. Besides Rommel, thousands of German soldiers also became ill and could not fight. None of the British soldiers became sick this way.
There is one more chapter to this story. Rommel was trying to drive eastward in North Africa to defeat the British there, but also he was headed for Palestine, in order to give full control of the Holy Land to the Arabs. But a premillennial Christian, Lord Arthur Balfour, had earlier been used of the Lord to put forth the Balfour Declaration in 1917 that promised "His Majesties Government will aid the Jewish people in establishing a homeland in Palestine ..."
The Germans were stopped in a large part because of the illness of Rommel's troops. The British prevailed in holding the Holy Land for the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people. Though the British did some things that were bad before Palestine was turned over to the Jews, yet still, the nation of Israel was established in 1948.
The first President of the State of Israel was Dr. Chaim Weizmann. Born in Russia, he became a naturalized British subject in 1910. During World War I he made an important contribution to the British war effort: in 1915 when there was a critical shortage of acetone for explosives, he developed a process for manufacturing it synthetically. This contribution undoubtedly helped make the English government more receptive to the negotiations, with Weizmann and other leaders in the Zionist movement meant to bring the Jews back to Palestine from their worldwide dispersion. It was an important factor in the institution of the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
We had better love the Jewish people even though today most are without Christ and are blinded as to who He is! The apostle reminds us today that "From the standpoint of the gospel [the Jews] are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God's election they are beloved [they are loved by Him] for the sake of the [Jewish] fathers [Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob], for the gifts and calling of God ARE IRREVOCABLE" (Rom. 11:28-29). However "we Gentiles were once disobedient" (v. 30a), but today "so they are also now disobedient" (v. 30b). Paul concludes: "Because of the mercy shown to you [Gentiles] they also may NOW to be shown mercy" (v. 31).

|On the Baltic coast there were three small countries, Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia. They were taken over before the beginning of World War II by Russia, but then, they were overrun by Germany when the war started in that part of Europe, in June 30, 1941. The city of Vilna was known as the Jerusalem of Lithuania because of the many Rabbinical and Talmudic schools there. The same was true of the city of Telz. It had many Jewish centers of learning that fed the Jewish congregations of northern, eastern, and western Europe. |
The Soviet Union annexed Lithuania in the summer of 1940, but by the spring of 1941, Lithuania's Jewish population reached 250,000 including 15,000 who had fled German occupation of Poland. Some 6,000 of these succeeded in emigrating to the Holy Land, the Far East, and elsewhere several thousand more were deported by Soviet officials to remote parts of Russia.
When the Germans arrived they actually began their killings in Lithuania, starting with 500 Jews in three border towns—Gargsdai, Kretinge, and Palanga—at the end of June 1941. Both the citizens of Lithuania and those sympathetic with the Germans were killing Jews right and left! The SS German commander observed how enthusiastic and willing the Lithuanians and the Romanians (who came with the Germans) were willing to kill Jews. The sadists, the German Einsatzgruppe (the killing teams of Germans) moved around the country killing every Jew they could find. The job was so difficult, some of these men went mad because of the slaughter they were involved in.
From the city of Kovno, and other towns, in three days several thousands of Jews had died. In a few more months, 7,800 Jews had been liquidated. The Germans had killed 80 percent of Lithuanian Jewry by the end of 1941, and over 95 percent by the end of the war. Those not killed were herded into ghettos and destroyed by starvation, forced labor, diseases, and murder. One Jewish leader urged his people to resist. "Let us not go like sheep to the slaughter," he said. When the Red army reached Lithuania in the summer of 1944, they found very few Jews alive. Possibly there were only 2,500 survivors in and around Vilna, with 5,500 elsewhere in the republic.
Because the Germans wanted to kill every Jew in Lithuania, with the help of the population, only the Holy Land was the place of safety for the people. Only a small group made it to the Promise Land! Most of Europe was judged because of the slaughter of six million European Jews! With Russia, and Europe, some 40 million or more Gentiles died because of their diabolical hatred of God's earthly people! –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|The thankfulness of Ezra Stiles (1727-95) must be resurrected again in our thinking. He was thankful for the blessings God had bestowed upon this nation. He said: "And now, my fellow audience, the Most High planted our fathers, a small handful, in this land, and lo! We, their posterity, have arisen up to three million people. Our ears have heard, and our fathers have told us, the marvelous things God did for them; but our eyes have seen far more marvelous things done for us, whereof we are glad and rejoice this day. ... Having fought the good fight, our warfare ended, let us not fail to look through providence up to the God of providence, and give glory to God the Lord of Hosts."|

|I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama. I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama! I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it. I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President! Why am I doing this? It is because:|
Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama's, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right! For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!
They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country! They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant! They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years! They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country! They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society! They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code! They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech! Unite behind Obama? Never !!!
I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil! PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers! Majority rules in America , and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and his 'goals for America .' I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country! ! Any more compromise is more defeat! I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America !

|Articles keep coming to me by email that are getting worse and worse. We are into the apostasy, and the collapse of our cultural as we have known it is accelerating. We must continue to pray but it's as if God has answered! Remember, He answers Yes, No, and Later. So far, it has been a loud and clear No! The judgment is falling upon this country. I began writing and speaking about the coming of the apostasy about two years ago, and indeed, I was right on target. Things are getting worse, both in our culture and in the churches.|
If you want to read about these things that fell upon Israel centuries ago, as recorded in the OT, open your Bible to almost any of the prophets and you'll see what normalcy is all about. We are going back to normalcy, that is, the way things should be, when sin has its full opportunity to spread throughout a culture. By God's blessings, we have been protected for generations, living in "non-normal" days of goodness and the kindness of the Lord. Remember, sin is normal! And that is what we are returning to!
For example, we read in Hosea:
"Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces (prosperity); ... I will send a fire on its cities that it may consume its palatial dwellings. ... Do not rejoice, O Israel, with exultation like the nations! For you have played the harlot, forsaking your God. ... The days of punishment will come, the days of retribution will come; let Israel know this! The prophet is now a fool, the inspired man is demented, because of the grossness of your iniquity. ... They have gone deep in depravity. God will remember their iniquity, He will punish their sins. ... Though they bring up their children, yet I will bereave them indeed when I depart from them! ... [ Israel ] is stricken, their root is dried up. They will bear no fruit, even though they bear children, I will slay the precious ones of their womb. My God will cast them away because they have not listened to Him." (Hosea 8-9).
America will not turn back! Our apostasy is racing forward, and God is storing up a judgment by the foreigners who are coming in to our country and destroying our heritage. Your churches and the Christian believers need to prepare for terrible times coming. God is removing the blessing from our land. –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)

|"America, a land of immigrants"? The answer is a yes and a no! Those who came here before World War II were a different breed. First of all, there were quotas that rightly favored Europeans and Western nation immigrants. The reason was partly because of the Reformation. Immigration favored those from Anglo-Saxon origins because of religious beliefs, though this was certainly not the total story.|
Religion or origin played a role because Americans realized what would happen if this component was destroyed. This would be a land that would become a melting pot of beliefs that would destroy America. When our forefathers spoke of "pagan" beliefs they were speaking about all other religions other than Christianity.
Those who passed through Ellis Island came to work, not simply to be takers of the American wealth. You had to come to make it on your own. "They built skyscrapers. They built America!" "This became their spiritual home, America!" In the 1830s a large number of immigrants came from Northern and Western Europe, especially Britain, Germany, and Ireland. Beginning in the 1880s they came from Greece, Poland, Russia, and Hungry. They came by the shipload in order to "work." "Officials wanted them to come ready and able to work." But there was no free ride, and few sneaked in across the borders. They were asked: Who is meeting you? Who paid your passage? Have you been in prison?
They were checked for diseases or for a criminal background. If they had no job skills they were probably not allowed to stay. One of the first things they had to do was to be able to write their name in English. And after they got here, most were required to take classes to learn English. The country did not acquiesce to their language—they had to learn English.
President John F. Kennedy broke the quota system down. America would no longer favor Protestantism and Reformation countries. Christianity or religion was no longer a test. This would become a secular nation whereby Christianity would be put to the back of the bus, and would play no role in how immigration would go.

|At the Clifton Bible Church here in Texas, I put together blank letters and envelops made out to our two members in the U.S. Senate. The congregation takes these blank letters, made out with the address to the senators, and then they fill in the message they want to communicate. All they have to do is put a stamp on the already addressed envelop and fire off their message.|
This is a way of speeding up what we all need to say to those representing us in Washington. The church provides the blank letter for the congregation so that they can write out their message, put their name on it with the date, and send it out.
Here is a great reminder that should be stated from all evangelical pulpits this coming Sunday: "We cannot be appalled in our pews and then passive at the polls." – Meeke Addison
Most evangelical Christians are seeing things the same way, because we are in-tune with truth, and especially spiritual and biblical truth! Generations ago, when it came time to vote, all pastors in America gave what was called their "voting sermon." Pastors were not intimated by the government to forgo telling the people what was right—and how they should vote, because truth was transparent and universal to most Christians. Thank the Lord, today most believers see what is going on in Washington and are in unison as to what we should all do. Pray for America because we are at a crossroads. We will be delivered or judged this coming year! –Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)
