'Without Faith, it is Impossible to Please' God

a reminder

Do not listen to doom and gloom. This is not the end of the world -- and it does not have to be the end of America. (And Barack Obama is not nearly talented enough to be the antichrist.) God's plans are carried to completion.

Pray and work, for the acceptance of the Way, Truth, and Life, and a return to American principles; to the freedom brought by continuous fulfillment of the responsibilities of the Sovereign People.

"But you, O Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend,

I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

"All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.

Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.

For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 40:8-13

That is the way of God, for the remnant who "believes that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)

Without national repentance that is never going to happen.If God blesses this nation He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomoorrah.We can find any paasage of promises in Scripture to delude ourselves.Look at the nation and its' people.Look at the blood of the innocents from abortion alone that total 50-60 million.Look at all the laws glorifying deviant and antichrist lifestyles.The remnanat adheres to God's Word,not pie-in-the-sky hopes of deiverance without repentance.Hundreds of Biblical passages and events of past history could be stated to prove God judges people and nations for sin.But if one holds tradition and personal views above the Holy Scripture,it will fall on deaf ears.That's not to say we shouldn't work at restoration of the Constitution,but understand it hasn't been in effect for over 60 years.Nor has this been a Republican form of government for even longer.As for the Antichrist,he will be revealed in due time when everything comes apart.And if you study the character traits and bloodlines listed in Scripture,and compare them to the amount of information we have on Obama,and his actions,and the world's growing worship of him,you will find he does have the "talent" and profile that mesehs with Scripture.Just because some people can see thrugh him at this juncture,doesn't negate the billions deceived already.Read Hosea,where we are told the God's people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.The world is not going to go on infinitely.Tradiotns of men,and belief in one's own desire for a nation doesn't trump reality or God's Word.To categorically state that this is not the end-times os to deny all the signs around us,and to deny the Word,which is Jesus Christ.Time will tell if Biblical faith or the social gospel of name it and claim it faith is true.

I don't believe Jesus lied when He spoke of the end in Matthew 24.Nor do I beleieve any other authors writing under dive inspiration of the Holy Spirit lying when they wrote of these times.These are doom and gloom times.But as the mainstream media tells us figuraitvely--- go back to sleep.All is well.Obaey.Hope.Enjoy the Change.Don't listen to preachers telling us the signs of the times and the need of repentance.Go ahead and have faiuth,but don't use the words sin or repentance.Wave your flag,but don't follow the Bible.Keep voting and things will get better.There are no conspiracies.People like Gerald Celente just want to scare you.There is no UN agendas forming a one world government.The Pope is not a part of this.Just enjot the entertainment on cable tv and shout at the current administration.We'll give you the heroes on our tv shows to back you up.

Accepying what is going on around us,does not mean one lacks faith,or is fearful.What is it that hints anywhere in Scripture or history that makes the USA immune from destruction? Or that this present world will go on forever without judgment and finality? Or that there are no plans for world govenrment and religion? Or any politicians calling for national repentance? Or that the remnant can deny the prophecies and signs written about in Scripture?Or that the calls for global governance by world leaders are haapenstance in this time period?Or the recent drying up of the Euphrates per Rev.16 paving the way for Armageddon?Or the hundreds upon hundreds of prophecies fulfilled indicating the signs of the times?The Bible is written for us to be understood if we have faith,not to be relegated to religious leaders or personal interpretation.

The poster of this article needs to read Foxe's Book of Martyrs.And take a long look at history.Even if we dismiss the Book of Revelation,the prophecies throughout the rest of the Bible tell us there are signs and events that make it clear to Believers that the time of the end is at hand.How many years before the 2nd Coming is another issue.But discerning the signs of the last generation is clear.

God has a Great Commission to fulfill.

We can mope, or we can go about fulfilling it with Him -- and preserving the freedoms and means to do so, until the harvest is complete.

Jesus said there will be troubles of all kinds from then until the end. There is no more excuse for fatalistic passivity now, than during the times of the Caesars. The prophecies about the future are prophecies about the future.

Today, we are responsible for securing a proper future for our children and their children.

Hi Arlen -

Thank you for the encouraging words. I agree that we need not fear, but it is easier said than done, humanly. Thank God that as believers, we can stand in His power, & trust in His unfailing love.

Christians & "Hate" Bills

If "hate bill"-obsessed Congress [and Obama] can't protect Christians from "gays" as much as it wants to protect "gays" from Christians, will Congress be surprised if it can't protect itself from most everyone? If "hate bills" are forced on captive Americans, they'll still find ways to sneakily continue to "plant" Biblical messages everywhere. By doing so they'll hasten God's judgment on their oppressors as revealed in Proverbs 19:1. (See related web items including "David Letterman's Hate, Etc.," "Separation of Raunch and State," "Michael the Narc-Angel," "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," and "Tribulation Index becomes Rapture Index.") Since Congress can't seem to legislate "morality," it's making up for it by legislating "immorality"!

David Letterman's hate is as old as some ancient Hebrew prophets.
Speaking of anti-Semitism, it's Jerry Falwell and other fundy leaders who've gleefully predicted that in the future EVERY nation will be against Israel (an international first?) and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed, right?
Wrong! It's the ancient Hebrew prophet Zechariah who predicted all this in the 13th and 14th chapters of his book! The last prophet, Malachi, explains the reason for this future Holocaust that'll outdo even Hitler's by stating that "Judah hath dealt treacherously" and "the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this" and asks "Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother?"
Haven't evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the recent filthy, hate-filled, back-stabbing tirades by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard and Kathy Griffin) against a leading evangelical named Sarah Palin, and explain why most Jewish leaders have seemingly condoned Palin's continuing "crucifixion"!
While David, Sandra, and Kathy are tragically turning comedy into tragedy, they are also helping to speed up and fulfill the Final Holocaust a la Zechariah and Malachi, thus helping to make the Bible even more believable!
(For even more stunning information, visit MSN and other engines and type in "Separation of Raunch and State," "Michael the Narc-Angel," "Bible Verses Obama Avoids," and "Tribulation Index becomes Rapture Index.")
