"You Have Wearied The LORD..."

"Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?" - Mal 2:17

America, we have wearied the LORD because of:

1) Pride and Arrogance - America thinks it cannot fall. We believe that our system is the greatest system, and try to force it upon other Countries. We think that God is automatically on our side (when WE should be seeking to be on HIS side!). We believe in our own benevolence. America believes that just about everything it does is "just" and "righteous."
2) Rebellion - Against God's ways. From our Church leaders, to our Political leaders, to the people, to even our children! There is rebellion Against God's ways from the top down - the whole body of America is SICK with rebellion.
3) Tolerating and even celebrating false "teachers" and "prophets" - Our Country in run amok with false teachers and prophets, who are not only accepting, but also openly PROMOTING New Age and New Age practices such as meditative prayer, Yoga, etc., Homosexuality, Abortion, et al. We are getting further and further away from God's word as our standard, and promoting Humanism as the standard for living!
4) Perverting Justice - Our courts are rampant with wicked and perverse judges, who let off the guilty, and condemn the victim. We have Governors, and even Presidents that offer pardons to those guilty of heinous crimes. We have judges that rule from the bench by judicial fiat, creating unjust and wicked legislation from the bench. We no longer punish evildoers. We turn a blind eye to justice, rather than preserve justice with an unprejudiced eye.
5) Murder - in every form imaginable. The American holocaust, ABORTION, is an ABOMINATION before God. He will not remain silent forever because of this. It is a stench in His nostrils, and we tolerate this infanticide. To date: *50,766,279 abortions in America since 1973!!! That is FOUR TIMES the estimated number of those killed by Hitlers regime in Nazi Germany (6 million Jews, and 6-7 million other "undesirables").

*Number taken from National Right To Life fact sheet

In addition, murder in our cities and neighborhoods, continually - gang violence, civil violence, etc. We are a murderous Nation.
6) Divorce - From the CDC website:
  • Number of marriages: 2,162,000
  • Marriage rate: 7.1 per 1,000 total population
  • Divorce rate: 3.5 per 1,000 population (44 reporting States and D.C.
While it is true that divorce has actually gone down a bit over the last couple of years, it is still a HUGE problem in the U.S., and especially in our CHURCHES (where it SHOULD be as rare as the Dodo bird!).
7) Deceit - Our Country is rampant with deceit: From the President, to Wall Street, to the Churches, to small business, to the people. We are a LYING Nation! Our Politicians lie, and then accuse each other, back and forth, of lying! Business men lie and cheat each other, and the rest of us! The rest of us lie and cheat our spouses, family members, friends and neighbors.
8) Homosexuality - Open homosexuality, in EVERY form IMAGINABLE, has not only been tolerated, it is openly accepted as a "normal" form of human sexuality - a complete abomination before God! Even some our our CHURCHES are now not only accepting it, but actively PROMOTING it as a "gift" from God to some individuals. What a vile, disgusting LIE.

Pastor/Rabbi/Deacon/Minister/Reverend/Priest: if you are calling homosexuality "good" and even a "blessing" from God, you are lying, and denying the God you claim to serve! What a lie - What a DISGRACE to the gospel of Yeshua, who died - DIED - for ALL sin! He gave His LIFE to redeem ALL sinners, and you want to keep them IN their sin - and feel good about it!!! Shame on you!
9) National Blasphemy - From our pulpits - We have Pastors, Rabbi's and Clergymen who, while proclaiming with their mouth faith in God, DENY Him by denying His word.
God's name is used as a curse word millions of times DAILY in America.
God's name is used in vain and repetitious prayers that are more designed to glorify the one praying than God Himself.
Every vile and wicked thing is tolerated in peoples lives, while being told that God is not angry with them, that their sin is SEPARATING them from the One who LOVES them, and DIED for them!
God's name is invoked by our Political leaders in their prayers, and public addresses, while their lives and policies go against EVERYTHING that is right, just, and good.
10) Apathy - All of the above are tolerated continually, not only by non-Christians, but by the CHURCH! As long as it doesn't affect my daily life, I'm content to simply shake my head and "tsk, tsk." This is the attitude of MOST Americans. America has become fat, lazy, and content to wallow in it's mire.

In spite of all of the above, America CONTINUES to proclaim it's own "goodness" - and continues to "invoke" God's name, and blessing, while REFUSING to repent. Our many words to Him have become "wearisome."

America, "Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?" - Mal 2:17

The 911 Tragedy

About a year or so ago, I heard a teaching that related some pretty interesting correlations between the 911 event, and Isaiah ch. 9. Norm Franz was the man giving the teaching. I believe I even commented on it on my blog (I haven't gone into the archives to check).

Recently, I found out about a man named Elliot Nesch, who did a rebuttal video to the Zeitgeist movie (to which I linked to just a couple of posts back). Elliot has also created a movie about the 911 events, and has ALSO linked them to Isaiah 9! The movie will tentatively be available in December of this year, but you can watch the trailer here.

For now, I want to link to the written article he has at his website, as it gives all the scripture references for the correlations that he proposes. I would ask you to please take the time to read it, because if there truly is merit to this (and the fact that several different teachers have come to the same basic conclusions does indeed give it merit - as in "two or more witnesses"), then it has DEEP implications, as well as warnings for America (and, of course, those living in it).

Please read, and let me know what you think. Is this message worth getting out to others?

"I Will..."

Pastors, in speaking about Satan's rebellion and ultimate fall, will sometimes refer to what they call the 5 "I wills" of Satan found in Isaiah 14 (which I will list in a moment).

I was reading Psalm 101 a while back, and I noticed a series of "I wills" in there as well, and I thought it interesting to contrast the two passages, since they both essentially contain 5 "I will" statements. They seem to be a contrast between "I will" statements of a righteous person, and those of the rebellious, self-loving God hater (sorry for the politically correct, watered down language ;) ). David made the first 5, Satan the second 5. Which list best reflects your heart?

Psalm 101:1-4
The 5 "I wills" of the righteous...
1) I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, I will sing (I count these two as one, since they are the same thing)
2) I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me?
3) I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
4) I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; [it] shall not cleave to me.
5) A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know wickedness.

Isaiah 14:13,14
The 5 "I wills" of Lucifer/Satan...
1) You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven;
2) above the stars of God I will set my throne on high;
3) I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north;
4) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
5) I will make myself like the Most High.'

We all have a "will" - we were born with it. How will we exercise it? The choice is ours...

New Link

I add new links every now and then (such as Paul Washer's HeartCry Missions and Brannon Howse's Worldview Matters - both of which I highly recommend), links that I believe have important, informative, and pertinent information. I don't necessarily agree with EVERYTHING on EVERY website I link to, but generally I believe that the ones I have listed have good information.

I especially want to highlight and mention the most recent addition - David Barton's WallBuilders, which I have added under the "Teaching Websites" category. His ministry is invaluable because he shares documented evidence that America was INDEED a Christian Nation from it's founding! The nonsense that we are taught in our Public schools today, as well as in our Universities, and on programming on the History channel, et al, that we were a secular Country from our inception, and that ALL of the Constitution signers were basically "Deist's" and agnostics is simply FLAT OUT LIES (no other way to put it!).

So please take the time to check out the wonderful info. that David Barton shares in his ministry.

Zeitgeist Refuted

About a year or more ago, an online film made the rounds on the Internet (starting at Google video), a film called "Zeitgeist The Movie" (the "Zeitgeist" means the "spirit of the age" - for ex. the Nazi regime under Hitler, with all of Germany falling in line and being swept up in the ordeal would accurately be called the "Zeitgeist" of Nazi Germany). It soon became VERY popular. The second half of the movie concentrated on what many Christians would call the coming One World Government, and the Antichrist system. It does a good job of giving a realistic scenario of where the World very well may be headed. The problem with Zeitgeist The Movie is really found in the first half - an extremely anti-Christian propaganda, based on what I would call very misleading, deceptive, and biased "facts."

If you have not seen the film - good. It has shipwrecked many peoples faith in the bible (though the issues that it refutes are, for the most part, Catholic tradition, and NOT actual, biblical facts). But if you HAVE seen it, Elliott Nesch of holybibleprophecy.org has made a movie to refute the claims of Zeitgeist. If you would like to see a film that addresses the "facts" raised in Zeitgeist, the go HERE.

Potential Loss Of American Sovereignty

I wanted to post this link to an article by Steven Collins, who wrote it after having been sent links to a video of Lord Monckton speaking at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

He makes some good points, and I think we need to let our Senators know that we absolutely oppose the ratification of the Copenhagen Treaty, should our Pres(cough, sputter, gag!)ident sign this unconstitutional treaty.

"Kenyan-born Obama...?"

Take a look at this Newspaper headline from the Sunday Standard Online Edition article from June 27, 2004.

The "birthers" may actually have a case (you know, the ones that are crazy for trying to contest Obama's place of birth in the courts, and show that he is actually not eligible to be President of the USA, and have received much disdain from the "establish media") - just look at the headline and first sentence of the article.

"Hate Speech" Legislation

Berit Kjos wrote a well written article about the issues surrounding the "Hate Crimes Prevention Act" that our President recently signed into law.

"This know also, that in the last days perilous (lit. "dangerous") times shall come." - 2 Tim. 3:1
