We’ve Been Saying On This Website The Same Thing For About A Year Now!

Texas Republican congressman Ron Paul sounds like an informed dispensationalist! Only a dispensationalist who understands what the Bible says about the apostasy, the rapture, and the tribulation, really gets it! Ron Paul has got it! He said recently:

I have grave concerns about America's future. I have days, growing more frequent all the time, when I'm convinced the time is now upon us that some big events are about to occur, he began. These fast approaching events … will affect all of us. They will not be limited to just some areas of our country. The world economy and political system will share in the chaos about to be unleashed.

Mr. Paul warned of an indeed frightening and an historic event, one that may even be worse than I first thought … now at our doorstep. There are reasons to believe this coming crisis is different and bigger than the world has ever experienced. The financial crisis, still in its early stages, is apparent to everyone: gasoline prices …; skyrocketing education and medical-care costs; the collapse of the housing bubble; the bursting of NASDAQ bubble; stock markets; excessive government debt; and unmanageable personal debt.

Little doubt exists as to whether we'll get stagflation. The question that will soon be asked is: When will the stagflation become an inflationary depression?

I receive almost weekly reports from a knowledgeable economist and a Christian, who says our people, especially our younger people, are in the dark. Their selfishness keeps them from understanding or caring what is taking place in our world. These are not simply economic issues but drastic spiritual issues. All that is happening can not go on much longer, he notes!

I am now working on a major book dealing with the galloping apostasy, globalism, and what all of this means to Christians. I am tracing the events of the last two hundred years that have brought us to this hour. I will be showing how World Wars I & II established the backdrop for what we are now faced with. And, I hope to show the diabolical nature of humanism that will bring upon us the removal of the church from the earth, in preparation for the wrath of God and the seven year tribulation. Look for its publication.

Proverb for the week of: July 28

The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother (Prov. 29:15).

The state now dictates how a child can be disciplined even at home. However many do not know it but in many states in the U.S. reasonable corporal punishment is still allowed. In Texas permission is given to properly spank your child as long as it is not excessive. But again, many younger parents do not know this. They are reluctant to spank because in the state government school systems they are told that spanking will ruin the little crumb snatcher's self-esteem! This is of course true, and that is what spanking is for—to humble the child under a higher authority, i.e. the authority and wishes of the parent.

Notice that in this proverb shame comes upon the mother if the child is always delinquent and getting his own way. The Bible teaches that children come into the world as sinners and must be controlled by discipline. Secular psychology in the state schools says the opposite. The government school teachers I know say they cannot even lay their hands on a child who is rebelling or even fighting with another child.

This is molding a new breed and generation that will be the citizens of the apostasy that is coming upon the world. There is no sin and there is no right and wrong. What is right for you is what is right! The schools can no longer teach morality and character. They can not even come close to referring to the God of the Bible. This was all planned many decades ago when the secularists began working their plan to remove the Word of God from the minds of our children. One Godless atheist said, "Well, Johnny may not be able to read because of poor teaching in the schools but he certainly is not believing in the mythology that comes from the Bible!"

Lawson writes, "The rod of correction is of no use without the concurrence of God. Men are naturally corrupt, and those who are left to follow the propensities of nature will be a grief to their fathers, and bring their mothers to shame." The Rabbis note that in the Hebrew the passage is referring to "a child let go, to run wild and unchecked. The rod of reproof refers to both corporal punishment and verbal admonition (13:24)."

Waltke adds that "wisdom protects the mother from blushing embarrassment, and a child whose parents let him run wild does not learn to conform to the divinely established moral order." Many Yuppy and Generation Y Christian parents are conforming their thinking to the culture. Many can be over protective. I saw one parent sit outside the Sunday school class door. She would jump up and run in the classroom if she heard her little spoiled kid cry! She trusted no one but herself in disciplining her little sinner!

In my opinion, we are in deep trouble!

Obama Helping Churches?

It used to be that "Faith-Based" ministries, such as churches, the YMCA and YWCA, and the Salvation Army helped the government in that they carried the load for charity and aid to the poor. But President Bush's government program supposedly was meant to help such charities do the same job.

But now Barack Obama says he will continue the plan with a revamped version. He will make it his centerpiece for his presidential campaign, but with a twist. That twist will make sure that the "Faith" part is missing. Organizations receiving government funds must keep their mouths shut in regard to the Lord or His Word. Churches buying into such a government plan now in place are already compromising their mission. The carrot is attracting the dumb rabbits!

Obama even got the Bible mixed up a bit with his brochure on the subject. Where the apostle Paul speaks of "faith, hope, and love" Obama changed the wording to "Faith, Hope, and Change." What audacity!

Also his plan will make sure those receiving government help cannot mention anything about faith or religious belief. He also added that the regulation should extend to sexual orientation as well. His policy would force Christian organizations accepting federal grants to hire non-Christians or homosexuals, even if that violates their Christian standards and goals, not to mention what the Bible says on the subject!

After revealing his plan, Obama delivered his major caveat: "If you get a federal grant, you can't use the money to proselytize the people you help, and you can't discriminate against them—or the people you hire—on the basis of their religion."

Many conservative groups are too dumb to look carefully at the fine print. This is actually a blessing from the Lord to keep groups with doctrinal and biblical convictions away from the government enticement. Many did not notice it but many of these "secularized" rules are already in place. It should stay that way! The carrot is actually poisoned! What a brilliant attempt by Satan to bring about spiritual compromise with evil. If God wants us to reach out, it will be done by His power and by His way, not the way of the government!

What Theodore Roosevelt Said About True Immigrants


When one takes legal American citizenship, “it is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” (1907 Speech)

Proverb Of The Week: July 7-11

The way of the Lord is a stronghold to the upright, but ruin to the workers of iniquity (Prov. 10:29).

Even though everyone in a nation is not born again, the Bible can and does have an effect on the culture and the mores of the society. There have been times in the past in America when even the lost had a respect for the Word of God. That respect is now gone. Millions are defying the laws of the land, disrespecting Scripture, and are pouring into the country to steal and take advantage of the rules established here for our citizens. Couples forgo marriage in order that the woman may receive free health care and get benefits that she is not entitled to. Millions come into the country in order to have a baby that then gives to them legal status to take advantage of the nation's generosity. The baby becomes a citizen and then the same is given to the mother. If law is violated because of sympathetic  humanism, destruction will follow!

   These are no longer simply social issues putting our nation at risk but issues of morality, spirituality, and of right and wrong. The nation cannot continue to destroy itself! Now what is at stake has to do with the open acceptance of sin, and such sin will destroy the underpinnings of the country. When a nation stands and holds fast its own laws, and the laws of God, it is blessed. It will be cursed if it destroys and ignores God's ways.

   Society is degrading rapidly. Almost 50% of young Americans have a social disease. Abortions take place each year by the hundreds of thousands. Many Americans, even Evangelicals, have no problem with abortions. Feminism has destroyed the family framework and order. Soon, almost half of the children born will be illegitimate. Our television media is now spewing forth raw sewage into our homes, and no one seems to be able to stop it. It is my opinion that we are already moving into the first stages of what the Scriptures call "the standing away" from the faith, the apostasy!

   Believers should certainly pray for the nation but also, we need to face the fact that a judgment is coming. We should not fear outwardly though we can grieve concerning the loss of this great country. Lawson says: "Upright men, when feeling the weakness of their own strength, are sometimes filled with anxious thoughts. But through the grace of Christ their strength shall increase. They shall reach in safety the end of their journey, and be more than conquerors (cf. Ps. 27:13, 14; Isa. 40:29)."

   The Rabbis say: "The upright man who walks therein finds courage and fortitude so that he is strengthened to face difficulties and dangers; to the evil-doer, on the other hand, it is "ruin" because they forsake it and so incur punishment." Unger concludes: "The expectation and the hope of the wicked shall perish (Job 8:13; 11:20; Prov. 11:7). The godless can have no hope, for they have no faith in God, on whom hope is founded."
