As my previous post says. What is happening now has been happening over and over again. War, hate, unGodliness, homosexuality, perversion, worshipping of idols and false Gods, premonitions of the anti Christ etc. I'm assuming those people throughout history saw the signs as you do as well. And the world didn't end then. I begin to wonder if all of this end of days stuff is a perception of how one takes what the Bible says. And if those signs were there in the past which I believe they were, did Jesus give the same ability to those people of the past to see it coming soon? Or just those of this modern age?
    First of all I am glad that you have been saved and are studying your Bible. One has to be diligent in studying and has to give it more than a cursory glance. Contrary to your statement about all these things happening all through history, you are partially correct. Idolatry, illicit sex, crimes of all descriptions have occurred but never in such manner to fully fit the Biblical prophecy today. The most critical sign to indicate our position in prophecy is the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948. That mere fact started the count down to the end and ties all prophecies together. The Old Testament prophecies weren't able to be comprehended by the people of that day because there was no Israel to give them a crystal clear marker upon which to understand. The Jewish people were scattered all over the world and had no homeland (even though it had been given to them early in history and lost by their disobedience to God). The Bible says that all the Jews will return to their homeland in the last days and, with the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel, they started returning. Homosexuality, although existant, was never the problem that it has become today. There again, fulfillment of both OT and NT prophecy. Wars and rumors of wars are daily fare as predicted in Matthew 24. Earthquakes, famine, and all the other predictions are happening with a frequency never experienced before in history.

    Study your Bible. The books of Daniel, Ezekiel, Matthew and John are some of my favorite and help me to understand Revelations and what we are to expect and look forward to. I don't profess to understand it all. I don't think any of us understand it completely but don't let that stop you. What I do understand keeps me busy in trying to live my life for God. The more you study, the more you will begin to understand. Take the Bible for what it says, not what you think it says. There is a saying I learned a long time ago when first starting to study, "If the literal sense makes good sense, seek no other sense, lest it result in nonsense." Many people on here make posts that are helpful in our studies so just hang in there, we are all in this boat together.

    Thank you for your words of encouragement. I was beginning to feel alone in my having such a hard time interpreting the Good Book. I am studying and hope to come to a clearer understanding with the help of God. For I do see everything you all are speaking of as significantly increased in modern times. Thank you for clearing my confusion.

    So who told you that stuff? Did you research your spiritual beliefs yourself or did someone TELL YOU what you were supposed to believe and hand you a book of instructions and you said, "Okay, fine - that was easy - I'll just adopt this because someone else said its right."

    The World is full of bazillions of spiritual beliefs because folks go out and figure out what works for them. And there are a few clumps of religions where folks who are easy sales just agree to someone else's ideas. I prefer the former and am deeply spiritual...I don't need to buy off on someone elses beliefs...lucky to be born to a country where that is okay.

    Know about the Mayflower folks since they are my blood ancestors and have studied about them for years. Whatever their spiritual beliefs (they did vary among them) and whatever forms of government they adopted over the course, they were FREE to make those choices.

    Whatever your beliefs are, they have already been believed by someone else. So they're not YOUR beliefs. They are that of someone who came up with an idea that rang true to you. Nobody tells anyone what to believe. They believe them because they seem to fit into their perception of reality. There are no new beliefs. Everything that has been thought of today has already been thunk (i know, not a real word) before and people read or hear those thoughts and base their beliefs on them.

    Like everyone else, I grew up in a church and was taught certain beliefs. When I got out on my own, I soon got taken up in the world and did not live an exemplary life for a number of years. I had a sense of loss all during that time but avoided church and religion in general. Many years later I developed an interest in God again. I read my Bible, studied it and everything else I could get my hands on and made the decision on my own. Nobody made the decision for me other than Jesus Christ because He came when I called and has been with me ever since. Maybe you are spiritual in your own way. I just hope you worship the right spirit and it works out for you. So, in that light, you are satisfied doing your thing. We prefer doing God's thing and in God's way and He gave us an excellent book of instructions.

    Agenda

    I watched the movie AGENDA and ordered the DVD, I hope to be able to share it with others.


    To defeat America you first must defeat the Church. We are now suffering the consequences of our inattention and complacency.

    God and the Churches guided a Stong Independent Nation to Victory throughout our history.

    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963


    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."


    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    Being a "Born Again Christian" the scriptures tell me that I'm IN this world but NOT OF this world, my citizenship is of Heaven. Being IN this world I'm commanded to be "aware of the seasons" (Times we're living). Being NOT OF this world I'm commanded "not to be caught up in the cares OF this world". Therefor I don't. I have to admit though, there have been many times when I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. Today, however, knowing the reasons of how and why Obama got re-elected and being aware of just how antichrist both the mainstream of secular society and the church have become, I find it all simply amusing and amazing at the same time. Amusing because knowing that "the wisdom of man is foolishness to God", man's governance as prophesied is ending in complete failure. Amusing also because soon, very soon, these "Fools By Choice" will have what they've always wanted, a country and a world without God. However short lived, a nightmare well deserved. Because "God sits on His throne and laughs" at man's wisdom and rebellion, I can at least agree in amusement.

    Amazed because I know that Israel Is God's Prophetic Timepiece and I've been blessed to be alive in This Last Generation to witness all of God's prophesies pertaining to Israel (and the world) being fulfilled currently on a daily basis. Even more amazed, and blessed, knowing that should the Lord not tarry, I will be among the only people having lived since the beginning of Creation to never experience death, and escape (Rapture) the most terrible time in the history of this world revealed by Christ.. Matthew 24:21.."For the trouble at that time will be far more terrible than any there has ever been, from the beginning of the world to this very day. Nor will there ever be anything like it again". Without question the Signs of the End of the Age of Grace are everywhere, only the self-deceived fools by choice, are too blind to recognize them.

    Luke 21:36.."Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
    AMEN... MARANATHA!!

    Truth Hurts
    I was going to post that the day it was released, but I've learned that too many people around here are too comfortable never having to face any hard truths.

    I have read some good analysis of Ann's Biblical references that suggest she has some things wrong. She may, I don't know, but I know she's got brontosaurus-sized cajones, and I know she believes what she says is the truth, and I know she is highly motivated to serve the Lord, Jesus Christ, in everything she does. I don't personally agree with her on every single issue she's ever spoken on, but I've never watched or read anything by her that didn't make me think and reevaluate my own commitments to God and country.

    And I gotta say, I loved the boots and Revolutionary-War-styled frock she was wearing in this video. She looked "ready to ride out to meet them," which is one her favorite mantras whenever she talks about the musloids who have threatened her or the government that is due any day to steal her property and forcibly make her homeless. She's a firecracker, that one is.

    Blues
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...
