Though Israel was a theocracy in the OT, there are still some very important lessons we can learn looking at what happened to the Jews in biblical history.

We have become like Israel! Moses warned the Jews about becoming fat and sassy, and unappreciative, even before they entered the land of Canaan. The Lord spoke through Moses: "Beware lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments … which I am commanding you today" (Deut. 8:11). God warned them:

Beware, lest when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies, then your heart becomes proud, and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery (vv. 12-13).

The Lord led you through the wilderness, gave you manna. "You may say in your heart, 'My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth'" (v. 17). If you forget the Lord your God then He will testify against you today that you shall surely perish (v. 19). "Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you would not listen to the voice of the Lord your God" (v. 20).

America, and the world, is rapidly moving toward the final days. Only a fool, an amil fool, and covenant guy, would deny what is happening.

Those of you who are pastors, or Sunday school teachers, need to get your people in your charge up to speed as to what is happening worldwide. Have you taught them about dispensationalism, and about the prophesied apostasy, or have you kept them in the dark biblically and spiritually? You may at first get some resistance because, if they've not previously been taught correctly, they may rebel against the Scriptures. The time is getting late! – Dr. Mal Couch

  No, the allegorist and covenant guys will not read and weep! They hate dispensationalists so much, and also they despise the idea that God will restore his salvation work again with the Jewish people.

   A U.N. panel will next week recommend that the world ditch the dollar as its reserve currency in favor of a shared basket of currencies, a member of the panel said on Wednesday, adding to pressure on the dollar to be faded out as the leading world currency.

   Currency specialist Avinash Persaud, a member of the panel of experts told a Reuters Funds Summit in Luxembourg that the proposal was to create something like the old ECU, or European Currency Unit. This will put Europe in the lead as the dominant power in the world financially. This is what the Bible teaches when read in a literal sense. It is a step toward the revival of Europe, setting up for the days of the tribulation. Poor dispensationalists have been teaching this for generations and now what we've said all along is coming to pass.

   But the covenant guys are so set in their allegorical ways, ignoring passages of Scripture, that when taken literally, point to happenings just as dispensationalists have always taught, from a literal view of prophecy.

   Also, the story comes just a day after the Moscow Times reported that Russian leaders are coming to the G20 summit of world leaders in London on April 2nd prepared to call for moving to a new single common currency!

   The "Euro" is the model many are looking to, in part because 20% of the world's foreign exchange reserves are already held in euros. This all could be a precursor to what the Bible indicates would be a cashless society, worldwide! "And he [the antichrist] causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one can buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name" (Rev. 13:16-17). -- Reported by Joel Rosenberg

  As one watches what goes on in television, it is impossible to escape what these passages of Scripture are saying. They fit perfectly our times. The arrogance of the lost, and of those in entertainment, is seen in these passages.

The wicked strut about on every side,
when vileness is exalted among the sons of men (Psa. 12:8).

[Discretion] will deliver you from the way of evil,
from the man who speaks perverse things;
from those who leave the paths of uprightness,
to walk in the ways of darkness;
who delight in doing evil,
and rejoice in the perversity of evil;
whose paths are crooked,
and who are devious in their ways (Prov. 2:12-14).

Share these passages with others.

This little story was sent to Scofield Ministries by a reader:

  A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt.

 The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

 In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'

 The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in The last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

  Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

 The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc.. While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.

 One should always remember: 'There is no such thing as a free lunch!' Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

  Also, if you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably delete this email, but God help you when the gate slams shut!

  Keep your eyes on the newly elected politicians who are about to slam the gate on America.

 "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have". Thomas Jefferson

  The feminist movement is alive and well. The feminist "theologians" still say that God has a feminine side as an attribute. He is part male and part female! In their ever growing spiritual blindness they use such passages as John 3:3 and 6 to try to prove their point. In these verses Christ told Nicodemus that he must "be born again," which in their minds is a motherly idea. And in verse 6 Christ says "everyone who is born of the Spirit." So in their diabolical thinking being born of God and the Spirit shows the motherly side of God. The same idea is repeated in 1:13: "Born of God."

   Deuteronomy 32:18 also says that Israel neglected "the Rock who begot you, and [you] forgot the God who gave you birth." Again, the ignorant and evil feminists say this proves the Lord has a motherly side, thus, He is God our Mother!

   Using this same twisted and foolish logic, Jesus must be a hen! He said to Jerusalem "How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling" (Matt. 23:37).

   These sorry ideas were again recently repeated by Sandra Schneiders who teaches theology and New Testament at Berkeley. Paul says that the god of this world, Satan, "has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God" (2 Cor. 4:4).

   Smart people can lose their senses by the work of Satan and can come to crazy ideas such as advocating the feminine side of God. Such types or illustrations in no way make God female. The word "God" is male and He is to be seen as masculine. This is the way He presents Himself in biblical theology! Though the word "Spirit" (Pneuma) just happens to be neuter, all the pronouns used in describing Him are masculine! No Greek scholar worth his salt would argue for the Motherly side of God the Father or of the Spirit!

   Such distortion of objective biblical facts will continue to grow. And because the Bible has been cut out of our society and culture, confusion will just increase and certainly not diminish. Satan is working overtime as we move deeper into the apostasy! – Dr. Mal Couch

 Have you heard about it? There is a growing movement that concerned citizens send to their Congressmen around April 1 thousands of tea bags as a reminder of the Boston Tea Party. Boat loads of tea were dumped into Boston harbor to highlight "Taxation Without Representation!" People are urging folks to join in. Pastors should rally their churches to join in on the fun and send tea bags to their senators and representatives. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

What is going on? What is their Agenda?

"The radicals running this nation really want the consumption of the U.S. to decline to the level of the rest of the world and they want our influence in the world to be proportionate to our population. They really want elitist controlled world government running the show.

"The U.S. is only about 25 percent Liberals and probably only about 10 percent would support the radical socialism and fascism that these people intend to bring in. Most that support this philosophy are elite American hating bigots, environmental wackos, criminals, and people living off of free handouts from the government.

"Yet, thanks to the elitist run media and an education system run by godless socialists and humanists they have succeeded in getting a radical leftist government into power. Do not underestimate them and think they can be easily removed. Hilter, Stalin, Mao and others like them took over their nations with initial support from a small percent of the population. Once they get their informers and secret police in place it is too late because if you do not go along with the agenda you will be dealt with." -- This is an excerpt from Don Koenig's article Marxism and Fascism is Coming to America

  The future seven year tribulation is clearly described in Mark 13:24-33. It is also mentioned in Matthew 24. The foolish amills and covenant guys cannot read very well. "This generation" has to do, by context, with the generation that is caught up in that terrible tribulation. Christ said, "This generation will not pass away until all these things take place," that is, the completion of the seven year tribulation (Mark 13:30).

   Ignorant covenant guys, who have no hermeneutical skills, say this is the generation of Christ's day. They completely ignore and run over the context of the passage. The Lord is talking about that generation that undergoes and lives in that horrible period.

   One of the greatest Greek scholars of the last generation knew this as well. He had more hermeneutical skills and Greek understanding in his thumb than all the amill guys who have an agenda, who do not know the Bible very well, and who plot against the Lord's literal return. Kenneth Wuest said,

The context in which the word 'generation' is used here, speaks of the Great Tribulation period, the Antichrist, the second Advent, the regathering of Israel. Certainly, the generation of men alive when our Lord was on earth, had died, and could therefore not remain until this future time. The context must rule here, as to the particular meaning of the word in this instance.

Wuest went on: "There is no question as to the extinction of the Jewish nation here. The Bible shows clearly that the Jewish nation is indestructible. All of God's purposes in salvation are channeled through that nation. The Jewish nation will remain on earth as a nation through the time of the fulfillment of these events."

   How idiotic are the covenant guys who deny the second coming of Christ to reign and rule on the Davidic throne actually, and literally! They replace Israel with the church and do their dirty deed upon those who will listen to them! Christ has two tremendous roles to fulfill. One has already taken place. (1) His coming to be the Savior of the world, and (2) His future coming to reign over the Davidic Kingdom in Zion (Jerusalem) over all humanity. That 1,000 year reign is literal and is yet to take place. I believe we are getting extremely close to that happening. The covenant guys deny His second position—He is the earthly King who will set on the throne of His father David!

   Although generally amillennial in his thinking, Ellicott got Matthew 24:34 straight about "this generation." He realized it was not speaking about the generation that was standing before Christ at that time. Ellicott says:

'This generation' means the nation of Israel. A living generation was meant, seeing that the prophecy is by the next verse carried on to the end of all things: and that, as matter of fact, the Apostles and ancient Christians did continue to expect the Lord's coming, after that generation had past away. (p. 245)
   Walvoord shows how empty the covenant guys are in their thinking when they deny His coming earthly reign. He wrote in his Revelation commentary:

    How poverty-stricken is any Christian theology which minimizes the second coming of Christ and how limited the Christian hope which does not include this glorious climax to God's announced program of exalting His Son and putting all creation under His control. (p. 274)

   The satanic irony is, that as we come closer to the prophesied events, there is more blindness as to what the Scriptures actually teach about the end times. There is a satanic ploy closing down the hearts and minds, as to the truth, of those who should know better! – Mal Couch

  During some of the confusion and racial riots in our cities in 1965, Columbia University sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Piven created a paper entitled the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" designed to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. There can be little doubt that Barack Obama knows of this paper.

   Their article calls for "cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy." To place the society into a crisis mode is also part of the strategy. "We must act now" is the hallmark and cry for action that launches this program.

   Intimidation by threats of violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, left wing journalists would float the idea of "a federal program of income redistribution," in the form of a guaranteed living income for all—working and non-working people alike. Local officials would clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it. With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act. An economic crisis can be as effective as a social crisis. Place the country into a depression and the strategy would work equally as well.

   Most Americans have never heard of Cloward and Piven. But New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani attempted to expose them in the late 1990s. Citing the 1966 manifesto of these two men, Giuliani said that militant scholars knew what they were doing. "This wasn't an accident" he charged in a 1997 speech. "It wasn't an atmospheric thing. This is the result of policies and programs designed to have the maximum number of people get on welfare."

   ACORN was created to use the Cloward-Piven strategy to the fullest. Put on the voting records "dead wood" of nonexistent people in order to pad the voting list, mainly and mostly of Democratic voters who will vote for more welfare. Frivolous lawsuits and unfounded charges of "racism" and "disenfranchisement" and "direct action," drive the voter fraud machinery. The Cloward-Piven strategy set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and it introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries. For many years, Obama was "active" in this strategy.

   It will be impossible to turn around the direction of this nation, morally, socially, and politically. We will never again see conservative leaders in local government or in Congress. The minorities will all be voting Democratic, looking for welfare handouts, free housing and free medical care. The ignorance of such groups, along with the younger crowd of those under thirty years of age, will be the electorate of the future. They have no concept of the founding of this nation, of the principles of strong government, and of the blessings of the founding fathers. This is not to argue that all was perfect in the beginning of this nation—it was not! However, the Reformation heritage played a huge part in the establishment of America. The minorities cannot lay claim to "the founding fathers." They have no idea of what they stood for spiritually and socially! There is no turning back. And much of what is coming upon us is clearly a judgment from God!

  I have almost felt embarrassed in my views about how unequal various cultures really are. America was founded on the Reformation/European model. No other cultures have this as the blessed background, therefore, the people who come from these viewpoints can never have the same understand about freedom, society, and what it means to be self-governed.

   What I've said sounds prejudicial but it is not really. Before law, everyone is equal, and before the Lord, all people stand the same, as sinners needing salvation. But cultures that are not European, and Reformation, are not equal. People from a Latin culture, or a culture from another continent cannot identify with the Anglo-Saxon, European view. Our founding fathers were from Europe. They were Calvinistic and had a strong view of Scripture. This does not mean that all of them who arrived on these shores were Christians. Nor does it mean that today all European stock in America "has it all together." In fact, one of the great crimes is that those with this blessed orientation and background have discarded this heritage, and have forgotten "from whence they came."

   As this nation increases its population with other cultures, with other cultures coming in, the Reformation heritage is being swallowed up and buried! We have left our roots! We are a people that has discarded and forgotten its beginnings.

   Now the shocker!

   I discovered that Francis Schaeffer said the same thing I am saying back in 1960s in his book How Shall We Then Live?. You won't believe what he wrote. He said:

   There are only two alternatives to the natural flow of things. First, imposed order, or second, our society once again affirming that base which gave freedom without chaos in the first place—God's revelation in the Bible and His revelation in Christ. Countries that have never had a Christian Reformation base, will be the first to bow to authoritarianism [or socialism]. Already a growing number in Asia and Africa have gone this way—they have gone into chaos and remained there. Men in the Western governments, who were themselves often modern men, did not understand that freedom without chaos is not a magic formula which can be implanted anywhere. Rather, being modern men, it was their view that because the human race had evolved to a certain level by some such year as 1950 (for example), democracy could be planted anywhere from outside.

   They had carefully closed their eyes to the fact that freedom without chaos had come forth from a Christian base. They did not understand that freedom without chaos could not be separated from its roots.

   And when these outward forms are imposed on a world-view that would have never produced freedom without chaos in the first place, people will not stand when the pressures increase. Christianity in the West is based on beliefs in an everlasting, absolute God, the Japanese did not perceive the presence of such a permanent being.

   Latin American cultures are the same. They are based on the authoritative views of the Catholic system. Enough people from that orientation will have no ability to understand the Reformation mind-set.

   As the memory of the Christian base grows ever dimmer, freedom will disintegrate in other countries as well. Their system will not simply go on, divorced from its founding roots. And the drift will tend to be the same, no matter what political party is voted in. When the principles are gone, there remains only expediency at any price.

   When British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Peace Pact with Hitler in September 30, 1938, and sold the Czechoslovakian people down the drain, and called for "peace in our time," Winston Churchill gave an address in the House of Commons in which he said:

   "The people should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war … they should know that we have passed on an awful milestone in our history … and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies. We have been weighed and found wanting. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip whereby we have departed from our roots."

   As our nation is watered down without foreign cultures and societies, we will be destroyed from within. And this is what is happening right now in America. We cannot stop it. The judgment is about to come. There is no turning back. – Dr. Mal Couch


  Secular psychology says, Yes! But of course, secular psychology is contrary in its teaching to the Bible. The Word of God says that guilt is important in order to bring about conviction of sin, though often it does not do so because of the hardness of the heart.

   Paul says that the Law causes the world to become convicted, thus "all the world may become guilty (accountable) to God" (Rom. 3:19). James says that if we offend the law at any one point, we are "guilty of (breaking) it all" (James 2:10). Christ says that if we sin we are in danger (guilty) of eternal damnation" (Mark 3:29). To take lightly the Lord's Supper is to "be guilty of the body and the blood" of Christ (1 Cor. 11:27).

   Many seminaries, Evangelical seminaries, today have courses entitled "Integration of Secular Psychology and the Bible." How stupid and blind can one get! Most of our seminaries should be buried and put to rest because they have so move into apostasy and have departed from the pure faith and the teaching of the Word of God! – Dr. Mal Couch

  In my opinion, we are now into the apostasy spoken of in Scripture. And, we're seeing the death of the Western nations. This will bring about the "strong man" who will rescue the West and set up the powerful one-world government to bring military and economic stability to the world. Below is a list of issues that just point to the fact of how deep we are into the fall of Western civilization, all in preparation for the coming prophesied Tribulation period.

   Mexico and Pakistan are the two greatest hotspots on the globe. And America is deeply involved in both of these countries' problems. They figure in the nightmare of U.S. military planners trying to salvage what is going to happen in this country, because of the growing strength of the Taliban and even the drug lords of Mexico. Off duty servicemen are now told not to visit Mexico.

   The BBC reports that the U.S. economy and our military will continue to decline in influence over the next decade. But China and Russia will become stronger, challenging the West at every turn.

   Various countries that are growing weaker economically will negatively influence Britain over the coming years. Because of her trade with these nations, the U.K. will have less and less influence and her security will be threatened.

   Anti-Semitic riots are happening more and more frequently in Europe, driving many Jewish families to Israel. This is the Lord's way of bringing the Jews back home as prophesied in Scripture. One demonstration in London attracted 12,000 protesters. 25% of Germans, 20% of Frenchmen, and 46% of those living in Spain have unfavorable views of the Jewish people.

   Because of the influence of Arabs in Europe, there are more and more violent riots taking place in the streets of large cities. One out of every ten citizens of France is a Muslim.

   More and more the people of England are becoming hostile to Christianity. Christianity is virtually dead in Britain. And what happens in England, and in Europe, ultimately takes place in America. So expect over the next decade for Christianity to rapidly decline here. One Catholic Cardinal in England said: "Britain shows signs of degenerating into a country free of morals, because of its rejection of traditional values. The rise of secularism has led to a liberal society, hostile to Christian morals and values, in which religious belief is viewed as 'a private eccentricity' and the voice of faith in God is marginalized." (As reported in "The Good News," April 2009)

Fargo, North Dakota only has three percent unemployment. And jobs are plentiful with no one without work. Why?

The citizens were interviewed and asked about this. Their answer: We have a strong work ethic, and, we believe in being thrifty and saving our money. We are extremely frugal, and if we don't have the money, we don't go into debt.

Well, what is behind that practice? The people of Fargo are mainly European in background, and have a strong Reformation, Lutheran and Calvinistic heritage. Hard work and a strong labor ethic comes from their European and Anglo-Saxon history.

When the city, and other towns around were flooded last spring, the people did not ask the government for help. The news media showed twelve year old kids filling sand bags to place along the river front. No one was sitting around waiting to be rescued! Every one pitched in and did not ever dare ask for a handout, nor did they want one!

Hhhhmmmm! I wonder if that has to do with how this nation was founded?

Are we throwing away and destroying our Reformation heritage that made this nation so strong in the beginning? Are we importing into our fabric groups who have no idea what personal responsibility and self-labor is all about? Are we bringing in other cultures that do not have this in their cultural bent? I believe so! – Dr. Mal Couch

Former liberal President, and liberal Christian, Jimmy Carter, is reported to have said in view of supporting the nation of Israel: "To care for Israel is completely stupid and a ridiculous premise on which to base foreign policy and on which to base support for Israel."

Jerry Falwell said: "God has blessed America because America has blessed the Jews. If this nation wants her fields to remain white with grain, her scientific achievements to remain notable and her freedom to remain intact, America must continue to stand with Israel."

Quoting from Stephen Spector's recent book Evangelicals and Israel: The Story of American Christian Zionism: "Biblical prophecy and dispensational expectation certainly form one basis for Christian Zionists' support of Israel. The chief motivation for Christian Zionists is God's promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3: 'I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you.' That blessing became a biblical imperative and an essential element of dispensationalism in the 1909 edition of Scofield's Reference Bible."

This is correct! And thank God for Scofield's great biblical and spiritual insights! All believers who look for the return of Christ to reign on the throne of David in Jerusalem are Christian Zionists and proud of it! – Dr. Mal Couch

Did you know that in 2007 President Barack Obama publicly stated that he did not want to be over zealous and always go about wearing an American flag pin. But somehow he got the message that he needs to be more media conscious. Thus, Obama + American flag = good public relations!

But more: In all his TV appearances, he now surrounds himself with flags, or large flags covering the walls behind him. And the flag pin is now always with him. Many now question his motives and his turnaround. One observer said: "Neo-Marxists recognize the power of Old Glory as they steadfastly pursue their agenda. As Castro taught his followers, 'Pursue victory by all means necessary.'" To the liberal, "A flag is just a rag."

At one public event before the elections, Obama refused to salute the flag during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. The American flag disappeared from the tail of his campaign jet; it was replaced with an attractive red, white, and blue O, referring to his name. On inauguration day some of his supporters superimposed his image over some of the American flags they were carrying, a violation of the U.S. Flag Code. As a "Me Too," Vice President Joseph Biden now wears a flag pin on his lapel. Patriotism seems to be catching on!

We don't know if you noticed but at the end of inauguration day, the Washington Mall was covered in about 6 inches of trash left by Obama's enthusiastic supporters, who expected the Parks Department workers to clean up after them!

No building in Washington DC can be taller than the Washington Monument. And, on the very top of the monument, carved in stone, are these words in Latin: Laus Deo, meaning "Praise be to God!" We should not be surprised if someday some liberal congressmen, or President, will order this saying removed from the stone. America no longer praises God!
