Remembering Our Founding Fathers on Father's Day

Today many in the United States are crying out to President Obama and Government (i.e., Washington D.C.) to do more and more to fix our national ills. The notion that Big Government has all our answers and the solutions we need in this very chaotic and unstable world is fairy tale.

Our Founding Fathers wisely understood that the less power government possessed the better off we as Americans would be. Our Foundering Fathersfully comprehend that with the abandonment ofJudeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider. If present today, Our Founders Fathers would be fighting tooth and nail against this secular socialistic aggression.

Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider.

The present statist or U.S. constitutional apostate is rooted in the subjective liberal personal belief thatFallen Man through and by the out working of Big Government or "Socialism" can bring security and comfort to its inhabitants. This secular ideology has failed every time it has been implemented. In fact there is no government or political ideology that can ever usher in a world Utopia of perfection and bliss. Those who believe so are oblivious to the fallen nature of man and record of history (Rom 5:12-19).

Faith of Our Fathers 













Our Founding Fathers knew this reality to be true.They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Heb 2:14,15). The rejection of these heavenly principleswould only lead to the continual out working of godless tyrants and oppressors in this temporal fallen world.

They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God.

The outworking of all nations - along with theirgodless ideologies of big controlling government - are only full of good intentions and oppressive desires. The masses that have fallen prey to these are living in drunken fictional delusion with no deliverance in sight. (Rom 3:23, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev 17: 1-2).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions). Conservative values are a must and are the best ideology for here in time but God'sMessiah/Christ is absolutely essential for Almighty God's Holy (Perfect) ETERNAL Heaven. The Conservative and Liberal ideologies of this hour can never offer the absolute righteousness required of Almighty God and those ETERNAL heavenly necessities which are only found in Almighty God's Son, Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:30).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions).

The Bible states in Galatians 5:20-21"Now the works of the flesh (our fallen humanity) are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Also in Matthew 15:17-20"And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man."

The Fallen nature of man can never bring about true peace. God's word states in Isaiah 57:20"But the wicked (unsaved humanity) are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." This social gospel of man is in direct opposition to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible states in Roman 14:17, "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."

and also in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

One must choose who they will put their trust in, Big Government or Almighty God. Jesus said inMatthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

and in Matthew 6:33"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." To obtain true righteousness and peace one must know the Prince of Peace, The Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one obtain this reality.

The Bible states in Galatians 5:22"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Do you know the Prince of Peace the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior?

The Bible states in Isaiah 45:2122, "there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

also in John 1:12"But as many as received him(Jesus Christ), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"
.
As we celebrate Father's Day here in America, may we remember our American Founding Fathers vision and all that they have bestowed upon this nation. Their incredible Divine wisdom, selfless labors, enduring hardships and their reverence and great admiration towards Almighty God the King and Savior of the nations. They are indeed worthy of remembrance in America on Father's Day.

The Kingdom of God is at hand!

The Near Extinction of the God Honoring Father

We here in America have witnessed over the last past 50 years the EXPONENTIAL disintegration of the family unit and its catastrophic tsunami of violent physiological effects on our nation’s citizenry. From this disintegration and devastation has come most of the horrific social consequences in which we as a nation shall NEVER recover. The question that must be asked is, “Where is the God honoring father today in the “Land of the Free?” Well, America's culture has replaced the father by marriage to the mother with the "Baby's Daddy" and countless women are selling themselves to this immoral practice only to have their children left desolate and ravish by the absence of a father figure.

We in our “lawless good intentions” - ever seeking our godless utopian world - have LEFT OUT of the social equation a God fearing father, personal responsibility, accountability, morality, the Laws of Nature and the fear and reverence of Almighty God the Creator of Heaven and earth.

Our nation has invested TRILLIONS of taxpayer money into fixing America’s social disaster only to see the EXPONENTIAL increase in our nation’s social deterioration. How can this be? We in our “lawless good intentions” - ever seeking our godless utopian world - have LEFT OUT of the social equation a God fearing father, personal responsibility, accountability, morality, the Laws of Nature and the fear and reverence of Almighty God the Creator of Heaven and earth. To put it simply and to visualize our current state, we in our reprobate lawless bent and narcissistic mindset have sought to put out America’s ravishing social fire by using gasoline (Isa. 5:20). Is that not simple enough for all to understand? Yet to convey such common sense reality to America today and to both political parties is to be called insensitive, bigoted, extreme, radical and a host of other slanderous names in an attempt for America to hold onto their subjective, godless and lawless delusions (Rom. 1:18-32, 3). America today is drunk with delusion, void of common sense and saturated with lawlessness. All that is left is Divine judgment for her, which is at our very door.

Since the removal of prayer (i.e., Almighty God and His Word the Bible) from our children’s classrooms in 1962 and the rejection of healthily moral boundaries by the adults of that generation we have become a godless, reckless, tribal, sex addicted, drug addicted, drunken, super narcissistic and a pleasure seeking nation hell bent on full destruction (Rom. 3). We are as a train roaring out of control with nothing to stop her but the end of a cliff and a ball of fire. Who is to blame and to be held most accountable for the current state of our godless and lawless nation? As we shall see it is none other than the godless American man.

When the man abandons his God given responsibilities for the family unit expect only lawlessness to increase and social devastation to follow.

Men are firstly and most soberly held personally accountable to Almighty God for their behavior, family and for a health society. This is God’s order like it or not (Gen. 2:7-17, 1 Cor. 11:3, Eph. 5:23, 1 Peter 3:5-6). When the man abandons his God given responsibilities for the family unit, expect only lawlessness to increase and social devastation to follow (Rom. 1:18-32, 5:11-21). With Christ as the foundation the family unit is Almighty God’s design and building block for a healthy society for a sin fallen world (Matt. 7:24-27). One can always tell the strength of a nation by the strength of its family unit. Destroy the Divinely ordained institution of the family and reject Almighty God’s moral absolutes and a nation will fall. Strengthen the Divine ordained institution of the family and apply Almighty God’s moral absolutes and a nation will prosper(Deut. 4:7-8, Psalm 33:12). It is just that simple. Our founders held to Almighty God’s ordained institutions and thus we rose to be the greatest nation in the world. Our current leaders have rejected these Divinely ordained institutions and we are on our hospice deathbed.

The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation (Gen. 1:1-31, Ex 20:1-17, Mark 10:19, Rom. 13:9, Heb. 13:4).

The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation.

It was man’s rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes and Divine mandates for the family which led to the Genesis flood(Gen. 6) and it will be the global rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes for the family unit which will lead to the Day of the Lord (Rev. 6-19).

My dear friend, it is an ETERNALLY, HORRIFIC and a SOBERING thing to fall into the hands of the RIGHTEOUS judge and ETERNAL God of Heaven and earth (Heb. 13:4). When a man rejects and refuses Almighty God’s design for society and the family he will be  held FULLY accountable in that Day of Judgment (Matt. 12:36-37, Rev. 20: 11-15). What one does not recognize is that the deeds of a man's life here in time have huge consequences on his family (pro or con) and on society in general and will follow him all the way into that Day to be manifested and to be judged accordingly (Matt. 12:36-37, Rev. 20:11-15).

It was man’s rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes and Divine mandates for the family, which led to the Genesis flood.

The American male today is a wild man and there is no taming him. He is lawless, godless and a destroyer of the youth of America. This Father’s Day how many fathers truly seek Almighty God plan for their life and will for their family with all their heart, soul and mind? The God fearing father is near extinction today in America and in this world and the devastation of it is seen everywhere.

My dear friend, may it be our sincere desire to be all that Almighty God would have us to be to your wives and our children (Rom. 8:29). As theDay of the Lord is at hand we as fathers have much to offer our children and loved ones. We have much to tell them of Almighty God’s WONDROUS LOVE and ETERNAL HOPE (John 3:16-17, Rom. 8:28-39, 2 Cor. 1:9, 20, 1 John 3:1-3, Rev. 21-22:1-5). For us who know the Lord, this world is not our home and Almighty God has rescued us from the destructive consequences that will FOREVER follow those who rebel against the Creator of Heaven and earth (John 14:1-3, 1 Cor. 9-11, Gal. 1:4, Rev. 20:11-15). We have a Heavenly Father this Father’s Day who ETERNALLY loves us! What could ever be greater than that!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Crooked Hillary?






In the vain world of Hillary Clinton all are expendable, disposable and set apart for character destruction by her and her sycophants to keep Hillary's delusion alive. I think of a child I grew up with who told the most incredible whoppers to be accepted by his class mates and such is the mind and heart of this individual who has to continually reinvent herself as she chases after her dream of popularity and acceptance. These progressive secularists know ABSOLUTELY nothing of our American values and they despise everything that our American Founding Fathers stood for! Hillary and leading progressive secular Alinskytes are in a full blown war against our U.S. Constitution and the very absolutes and principles of Almighty God their Creator which made this country great. They have crowned themselves liberators of the lawless and now promote and seek to normalize all forms of base and depraved behavior and lawlessness(Rom. 1:8-32, Jude 1:10).  Our Founders were not moral relativists, haters of God, narcissistic, selfish, arrogant, socialists, secularists, sex addicts, murders of the innocent and haters of the Laws of Nature and Nature's God but these American Leftist surely are. In the end, Hillary's sacrifice for self glorification and acceptance will go down in flames and as all humanity before her has and will have to give a full account to her Creator in Spirit and TRUTH in that Day (Eccl. 12:12-14, John 3:16-17, 36, Acts 17:30-31, Rev. 20:11-15).

 Hillary and leading progressive secular Alinskytes are in a full blown war against our U.S. Constitution and the very absolutes and principles of Almighty God their Creator which made this country great.

We in TRUE love,sincerity and truth desire that Hillary would repent and come to a saving relationship to her Creator in Spirit and TRUTH; who loved her and gave himself for her (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, 16:28-31, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 John 5:10-18). Then and only then will she find the TRUE love and acceptance that she so desperately craves, not just in this life but for all ETERNITY!

In the end, Hillary's sacrifice for self glorification and acceptance will go down in flames and as all humanity before her will have to give a full account to her Creator in Spirit and TRUTH in that Day.Our sincere and true desire is that Hillary would repent and come to a saving relationship to her Creator in Spirit and TRUTH. Then and only then will she find the TRUE love and acceptance that she so desperately craves, not just in this life but for all ETERNITY!
It is again our sincere desire that Hillary Clinton turn (180 degrees) and come to a saving knowledge of the KING of Kings and LORD of lords; the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and Truth. The Bible's message of SALVATION is very, very clear to all and one that we need not be offended by. We are just to BELIEVE it, RECEIVE it, REJOICE in it, ENJOY it, and THANK Almighty God for it! It is just that simple my dear friend (Acts 16:28-30, Rom. 10:17, Rev. 22:17)! But... unfortunately the heart and pride of fallen man usually always gets in the way (Prov. 8:13-14, 16:18, 18:12, Matt. 23:37-38, John 5:40, Rev. 9:20-21)

The Bible Teaches:
Romans 5:8 - "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Sin separates us from God. God's Peace and Eternal Life are lost because of our sins.

Romans 5:12 - "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned;"

Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

God has provided the gift of ETERNAL Life. This Life is found in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

You can have this Life! This Life is made possible through Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:1 - "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"

Romans 1:16 - "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."

Romans 5:21 - "That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord."

Romans 10:9 - "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Romans 10:13 - "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Romans 10:10 - "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Dear God, I know that I am a transgressor against Your PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS and I need Your complete forgiveness to enter SAFELY and PERFECTLY into ETERNITY and into Thy HOLY PRESENCE. I believe with ALL my heart that You (Jesus Christ) died for ALL my TRANSGRESSIONS against You as Your Word clearly states and rose from the dead for my justification. I now REPENT and PLACE my complete trust in You as MY Lord and Savior and will follow You as the Lord of my Life.

May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What Will It Take For You To Believe Conservative America?
















My fellow American conservatives and those of you of the moderate conservative persuasion... May I ask you this simple question.... How do you do it? How do you keep your sanity when the last 10 years here in America have been an absolute disaster and everything conservative has gone off the cliff at EXPONENTIAL rates with absolutely NO human answers and applicable remedies in sight?

Well... we know that you "DON'T" do it and that you are totally consumed with fear, worry, optimistic delusions and pessimism. I read it every day on your faces at work, at family gatherings, on Free Republic, on the news and media outlets etc... You are scared to death and there is nowhere to hide your pessimism. Your optimistic hope balloon has finally popped in your face and you are left with ringing ears and consumed with fear for what is at hand. Oh my dear friends, America's demise is just the tip of the HORRIFIC godless iceberg that we see in front of us, for the EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC Day of the Lord is at hand and nothing can stop it (Rev. 6-19).

 I hope that you are not trusting in Mr. Trump to save America from its supersonic free fall. Donald Trump, if he wins the 2016 presidential election, will only be able to slow down the EXPONENTIAL U.S. rot a microsecond.

I hope that you are not trusting in Mr. Trump to save America from its supersonic free fall. Donald Trump, if he wins the 2016 presidential election, will only be able to slow down the EXPONENTIAL U.S. rot a microsecond. Though his position on many issues is sound, his position on moral absolutes is a godless one inviting Almighty God's wrath. What isABSOLUTELY critical for ones national survival is moral absolutes, but as we all know too well that that rocket has already been launched into deep space never to be seen again. Dear friends, what will it take for you to FINALLY wake up to the Divine realities and the prophetic warnings, which are found in Almighty God's INFALLIBLE Word which speak about our day (1 Tim. 4:1-4, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, Rev. 6-19)?  The HORRIFIC TRAGIC REALITY is that Americans WILL NOT wake up and will continue down their delusional road until that Day over takes our nation and world! I have seen it time and time again and it is VERY VERY rare that an individual (conservative to liberal progressive) will truly repent and turn to Almighty God in Spirit and TRUTH (John 4:24). The Bible is absolutely full of countless examples and in just my little life I can testify to the validity of the Bible's validity and examples.

May I ask you this simple question... How do you do it? How do you keep your sanity when the last  ten years have been a disaster and everything is going off the cliff at EXPONENTIAL rates with absolutely NO answers and applicable remedies in sight?
.
For the last eight years (since 2008), we here at the IFB have been sounding forth political commentary from a biblical perspective  teaching that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! We have pointed out countless in-depth posts and analysis of our nation's absolute GROWING fractured estate, decadence, lawlessness, secularism, sex addiction, abortion, narcissism, drug addiction, socialistic ideals, delusional solutions, hypocritical remedies and godless dominance. It was in 2006 when the Marxist Progressives won the House and Senate after a socialistic GWB sold out conservatism and our Founding Fathers that we knew it was over and we as a nation had finally crossed the tipping point. It was from then on that we began to preach to all Americans and to the world that the Day of the Lord is now at hand (Rev. 6-19)! The 2008 election victory of Barack H.Obama, America's first hard core Marxist president proved our point even further and in the light of all the Tea Parties, rallies, conservative optimism and energy the Left influence has only gotten EXPONENTIALLY stronger and our nation's rots growth EXPONENTIAL! Oh how I hate to state those REALITIES, but my dear friends stand back and look and is it not so! When all the overwhelming evidence of Obama's disastrous first four years of dealing with our economy, morality and global relationships it still didn't matter a hill of beans to the American people! and after these first four years of this man's socialistic Marxist tyranny we as a godless nation reelected this Marxist for a second term! Hopefully after eight years one might finally come to the conclusion that the jig is now up in 2016 for America... and it surely is! But yet clueless conservative "optimistic" scoffers abound (2 Peter 3:3) and conservative "optimistic" haters love to call us (IFB) quitters, delusional fatalist, sellouts, bigots, religious zealots, traitors, allies of the Lefts agenda, Bible thumpers and my personal favorite, "ignorant". One begins to feel like the prophets of old who were sent and rejected! What is AMAZING is that the majority of these comments come from conservatives from the largest conservative political website forum in America, Free Republic!

The 2008 election victory of Barack H.Obama, America's first hard core Marxist president proved our point even further and in the light of all the Tea Parties, rallies, conservative optimism and energy the Left has only gotten EXPONENTIALLY stronger.

For the past eight years we have been feeling the spiritual temperature there and have found that moral relativism, Biblical ignorance, conservative optimism and Christian ecumenicalism dominate that forum. Thank God for Free Republic, they mean well and are a great group of people who truly love America as I do but that is not enough to aid us in America's last hour. Thank God that there is some God fearing, Bible believing, evangelical presence there to help point America's conservatives to the REALITY of our hour and Almighty God's biblical perspective, but even these are usually scoffed at and laughed to scorn by American conservatives who are without a saving relationship to Jesus Christ the Messiah of Israel (Isa. 53, Matt. 7:21-32, Rom. 10:2-4). Tragically the dominant spirit there and in the conservative movement is one of unbelief, conservative optimism, spiritual delusion and ETERNAL blindness (Rom. 10:2-4). The temperature and climate of American conservatives who actually believe the Bible and its saving message is dead and ice cold! That is a heart breaking REALITY that God the Father has had to show me and with tears in my eyes I wish I could change it but I cannot choose for an individual to receive the Savior of the world.

The temperature and climate of American conservatives who actually believe the Bible and its saving message is dead and ice cold! That is a heart breaking reality that God the Father has had to show me.

My dear friends, oh how we need Divine REALITY today and not delusion and worldly solutions for our EXPONENTIAL national and global crises. Almighty God cries out to you all day long but will YOU receive Him and His ETERNAL solutions for your life? That is the biggest question ALL must ask themselves in these last days. All these current events and crises of our global community are self induced by the lawless and godless works of fallen man (Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 6:7). These products of evil men and their horrific consequences have been left in place to bring us to the brink of our delusions so that we may come out of our subjective lives and show us our desperate need for the Savior, His pardon, and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 3:16-17,36, Rom. 3:23, 10:2-4, 1 John 4:10)!

My dear friends, WHAT WILL YOU DO? Will you continue to look for worldly solutions and human saviors or will you finally come to the end of yourself and receive the KING of kings and LORD of lords who is the WONDERFUL COUNSELOR and PRINCE of PEACE (Isa. 9:6-7, Rev. 19:11-16). All ETERNITY is before us and our brief existence in this fallen world is about gone. See the ETERNAL, see the Savior, see the REALITY and you will find the liberation and peace of Almighty God that will calm and keep your hearts in America's last hours.

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved!" (Acts 16:29)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Heart of the American People

From a sound biblical position it is not hard to see our nation’s short comings and present dire estate. What is at the heart of America’s decline and the "common denominator" of the majority of the American people (conservative andliberal) is the outright REJECTION of Almighty God's saving solution (the Lord Jesus Christ) and His ETERNAL spiritual and earthly moral absolutes and principles for time.


What is at the heart of America’s decline and the "common denominator" of the majority of the American people (conservative and liberal) is the outright REJECTION of Almighty God's saving solution.

The ONLY solution for mankind's dilemma isa saving personal relationship to our Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH through Jesus Christ the RIGHTEOUS, who is mankind's propitiation from the wrath of Almighty God (Matt. 7:21-23, 15:7-9, John 4:24, Rom. 10:2-4, Titus 1:16, John 2:2, Jude 1:10). Every distraction and straw man of Satan is to get us to look away from the REALITY of the Cross and our ETERNAL destiny (John 3:16-17, 2 Cor. 4:2-4). It is a settled Divine ETERNAL TRUTH and REALITY that Almighty God WILL in the end crush ALL ungodliness and Satan's demonic opposition to ETERNAL REALITY (Dan. 2:43-44, 7:13-14, Rev. 19:11-21, 21-22:1-5).

It is a settled Divine ETERNAL TRUTH and REALITY that Almighty God WILL in the end crush ALL ungodliness and Satan's demonic opposition to ETERNAL REALITY!

For the redeemed, we rejoice in this wondrous TRUTH! But for the wicked, it is a Divine haunting conviction that continually speaks to the godless heart that all will give account to the Lord Jesus Christ in that Day(Rev. 20:11-15). My dear friend, if you know not the Savior... repent and be ye saved! Almighty God does not desire that any should perish but ALL come to a saving relationship to His dear Son (John 3:16-17). Beloved, if you DO know the Savior... thenstay focused and stay in His Word, which is LIGHT and TRUTH as you walk on your pilgrim journey. Be redeeming the time for the Savior for your labor is not in vain (Eph. 5:16-17)! The Lord is ALWAYS with you to outwork His good will for your life here in time for His GLORY and HONOR (Psalm 119:105, John 17:17, Rom. 8:28-39, Phil 4:13, 1 John 4:4, 5:4).

Ringing True for You? Then What to Do!

We started this blog eight years ago and we have seen everything that the Lord has laid on our hearts to tell you come to pass here in America. Our nation's plagues have never gotten better but only EXPONENTIALLY worse! If you have eyes to see and have been following the Spirit's leading in these troubling days then you will understand what we have been trying to convey to you. If you have not, then this message which we have put before you will sound like the crazy foolish babblings of a Christian end times zealot and kook.
,
for all the prophecies which speak of the end times which are to be  found in Almighty God's Word are about to become REALITY to this godless demonically drunken world and when that time does come they will know which out a shadow of a doubt  that God's messenger was sent unto them.
 
My dear friends, may we all play the man/women that our Savior has called us to be and do our part as a child of God seeking the Father's will for His glory, ever redeeming to time for indeed our day is evil (Eph. 5:15-16). Use our nation's crises and soon demise to cause people to think and let them know that there is an ETERNAL wonderful hope in Jesus Christ; for all the prophecies which speak of the end times which are to be found in Almighty God's Word are about to become REALITY to this godless demonically drunken world and when that time does come they will know which out a shadow of a doubt  that God's messenger was sent unto them (Rev. 6-19). God speed for God's glory!

The EU is Coming to Close Down Your Free Speech

The EU is Coming to Close Down Your Free Speech

It is nine months since Angela Merkel and Mark Zuckerberg tried to solve Europe's migrant crisis. Of course having caused the migrant crisis by announcing the doors of Europe as open to the entire third-world, Angela Merkel particularly would have been in a good position actually to try to solve this crisis.

But the German Chancellor was not interested in the reinforcement of Europe's external borders, the re-erection of its internal borders, the institution of a workable asylum vetting system and the repatriation of people who had lied to gain entry into Europe. Instead, Chancellor Merkel was interested in Facebook.

When seated with Mark Zuckerberg, Frau Merkel wanted to know how the Facebook founder could help her restrict the free speech of Europeans, on Facebook and on other social media.Speaking to Zuckerberg at a UN summit last September (and not aware that the microphones were picking her up) she asked what could be done to restrict people writing things on Facebook which were critical of her migration policy. 'Are you working on this?' she asked him. 'Yeah', Zuckerberg replied.

In the months that followed, we learned that this was not idle chatter over lunch. In January of this year, Facebook launched its 'Initiative for civil courage online', committing a million Euros to fund non-governmental organisations in its work to counter 'racist' and 'xenophobic' posts online. It also promised to remove 'hate speech' and expressions of 'xenophobia' from the Facebook website.

It was clear from the outset that Facebook has a definitional problem as well as a political bias in deciding on these targets. What is Facebook's definition of 'racism'? What is its definition of 'xenophobia'? What, come to that, is its definition of 'hate speech'? As for the political bias, why had Facebook not previously considered how, for instance, to stifle expressions of open-borders sentiments on Facebook? There are many people in Europe who have argued that the world should have no borders and that Europe in particular should be able to be lived in by anyone who so wishes. Why have people expressing such views on Facebook (and there are many) not found their views censored and their posts removed? Are such views not 'extreme'?





One problem with this whole area -- and a problem which has clearly not occurred to Facebook -- is that these are questions which do not even have the same answer from country to country. Any informed thinker on politics knows that there are laws that apply in some countries that do not -- and often should not -- apply in others. Contrary to the views of many transnational 'progressives', the world does not have one set of universal laws and certainly does not have universal customs. Hate-speech laws are to a very great extent an enforcement of the realm of customs.

As such it is unwise to enforce policies on one country from another country without at least a very deep understanding of that country's traditions and laws. Societies have their own histories and their own attitudes towards their most sensitive matters. For instance in Germany, France, the Netherlands and some other European countries there are laws on the statute books relating to the publication of Nazi materials and the propagation of material praising (or even representing) Adolf Hitler or denying the Holocaust. The German laws forbidding large-scale photographic representations of Hitler may look ridiculous from London, but may look less ridiculous from Berlin. Certainly it would take an enormously self-confident Londoner unilaterally to prescribe a policy to change this German law.

To understand things which are forbidden, or able to be forbidden, in a society, you would have to have an enormous confidence in your understanding of that country's taboos and history, as well as its speech codes and speech laws. A ban on the veneration of communist idols, for instance, may seem sensible, tasteful or even desirable in one of the many countries which suffered under communism, wish to minimise the suffering of the victims and prevent the resurrection of such an ideology. Yet a universal ban on images or texts which extolled the communist murderers of tens of millions of people would also make criminals of the thousands of Westerners -- notably Americans -- who enjoy wearing Che Guevara T-shirts or continue their adolescent fantasy that Fidel Castro is an icon of freedom. Free societies generally have to permit the widest possible array of opinion. But they will have different ideas of where legitimate expression ends and where incitement begins.

So for Facebook and others to draw up their own attempt at a unilateral policy of what constitutes hate-speech would be presumptuous even if it were not -- as it is -- clearly politically biased from the outset. So it is especially lamentable that this movement to an enforced hate-speech code gained additional force on May 31, when the European Union announced a new online speech code to be enforced by four major tech companies, including Facebook and YouTube. Of course, the EU is a government -- and an unelected government at that -- so its desire not just to avoid replying to its critics -- but to criminalise their views and ban their contrary expressions -- is as bad as the government of any country banning or criminalising the expression of opinion which is not adulatory of the government.

That these are not abstract issues but ones exceedingly close to home has been proven – as though it needed proving – by the decision of Facebook to suspend the account of Gatestone's Swedish expert, Ingrid Carlqvist. In the last year Sweden took in between 1 and 2% additional people to its population. Similar numbers are expected this year. As anyone who has studied the situation will know, this is a society heading towards a breakdown of its own creation, caused (at the most benign interpretation) by its own 'open-hearted' liberalism.

Countries with welfare models such as Sweden's cannot take in such numbers of people without major financial challenges. And societies with a poor integration history cannot possibly integrate such vast numbers of people when they come at such speed. As anyone who has travelled around there can tell, Sweden is a country under enormous and growing strain.

There is a phase in waking up to such change which constitutes denial. The EU, the Swedish government and a vast majority of the Swedish press have no desire to hear critiques of a policy which they have created or applauded; the consequences will one day be laid at their door and they wish to postpone that day, even indefinitely. So instead of tackling the fire they started, they have decided to attack those who are pointing to the fact that they have set the building they are standing in on fire. In such a situation it becomes not just a right but a duty of free people to point out facts even if other people might not want to hear them. Only a country sliding towards autocracy and chaos, with a governing class intent on avoiding blame, could possibly allow the silencing of the few people pointing out what they can clearly see in front of them.

People must speak up -- and speak up now, and speak up fast -- in support of freedom of speech before it is taken away from them, and in support of journalists such as Carlqvist, and against the authorities who would silence all of us. It is, sadly, not an overstatement to say that our entire future depends on it.
