One More Year Closer
  According to our Calendar, we are now in the year 2016. But as Bible Students and followers of Jesus Christ, we should never forget the many prophetic events that we have witnessed in the year 2015. 

  For instance: United States of America officially became a sodomite Nation and has decreased the Lamb-like Characteristics and increased to a Dragon-like attitude. Natural Disasters have intensified and are being blamed on Climate Change. Pope Francis issued an Encyclical on Climate Change which calls for Sunday Rest to help the planet from decaying. But before Pope Francis encyclical was published, In April of 2015, he published a "BULL OF INDICTION OF THE EXTRAORDINARY JUBILEE OF MERCY".

  A Bull has a lot of power. It is an edict, whereas an Encyclical explains what needs to be done or enforced. The condemnation of Martin Luther, for example, came in a papal bull. It was also as a result of a Papal Bull that many were condemned to death and burned at the stake during the Dark ages. And we are now in the so-called "BULL OF INDICTION OF THE EXTRAORDINARY JUBILEE OF MERCY". (I will be publishing an article about this soon). Also the historic and prophetic visit of Pope Francis to US. The Nations came together in Paris and bowed to the Papacy on Climate Change. The Call for Sunday observance has increased.

  All of these prophetic events should remind us of the following passage of Scripture: "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." - Matthew 24:34(KJV)

  Two Thousand years ago, before His ascension back to Heaven, Our Lord Jesus made a promise to His Disciples "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." - John 14:1-3

  We are just one more year closer to the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Be strong in the Lord!

OCTOBER 22, 1844 - OCTOBER 22, 2015

Revelation chapter 10 predicted the Millerites great disappointment in regard to the 2nd coming of Jesus. "And I took the little book (Daniel) out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey (2nd coming, October 22, 1844): and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter (disappointment, October 23, 1844) -Rev 10:10

But then, in spite of the disappointment they were told to go back and preach the same message.... "And he said unto me, Thou must PROPHESY AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." -Rev 10:11

"Thou must PROPHESY AGAIN" meaning the 2nd coming is still IMMINENT and it still needs to be proclaimed.

Question? If you were there, would you have gone back out and preach the same message? Well, a faithful few did. "Almost entire nights were devoted to earnest searching of the Word. We searched for the truth as for hidden treasures. The Lord revealed Himself to us. Light was shed on the prophecies, and we knew that we received divine instruction." - 17MR 11.2

During the 2015 GC Session, Bert B. Beach, who was one of the Delegates says this: "I recall hearing leaders at earlier sessions say, “This could probably be our last session.” I haven’t heard this said at recent sessions. I hope this is because we have become WISER, not weaker, in our eschatology." -

In other words, We are so wise, so well educated that we do not want to say that the 2nd coming is IMMINENT anymore. That's why in Fundamental Beliefs # 25 -2nd Coming - the phrase "Christ's coming is IMMINENT" was changed to "Christ's Coming is near"

"And, behold, I come quickly (IMMINENT); and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. -Revelation 22:12

It won't be long now!

The Rise and Threat of Legislating Morality in America -

"The mayor of San Francisco has banned all publicly funded city employees from traveling to North Carolina. The NFL is threatening to block Atlanta, Georgia, from hosting a future Super Bowl.
The NBA is threatening to relocate next year's All Star game from Charlotte, North Carolina, to another city. Corporate giants like American Airlines and Hollywood giants like Disney are threatening action against Georgia and North Carolina. Why? It is because North Carolina has passed a bill requiring people to use the public bathroom or locker room that corresponds to their birth certificate gender and because Georgia has enacted legislation (yet to be signed by the governor) that would protect pastors from having to perform same-sex "marriages."

It is time for Christians and all people of conscience to say: "Enough is enough with your bullying. We are not going to bow down to your threats. We will do what is right, regardless of cost or consequence, and in the end, we will be vindicated for taking a stand." -

Therefore, what we are witnessing is the beginning of the cry to take the Nation back to God by Legislating morality. Revelation 13:13, 14 did predict that this Nation, in order to fully bow to the Papacy and cause the whole world to worship the man of sin, will experience a so-called moral rebirth, which is a false revival and reformation "And he doeth great wonders, so that he taketh fire (false revival) come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."

"When our nation, in its legislative councils, shall enact laws to bind the consciences of men in regard to their religious privileges, enforcing Sunday observance, and bringing oppressive power to bear against those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath, the law of God will, to all intents and purposes, be made void in our land." - Mar 179

So then, what time it is? "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you." - Hosea 10:12

When it comes to being a peculiar people as the Word of God has called us to be, The Bible reinforced this idea by telling us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." -1 Thessalonians 5:22

When the test of loyalty to God came to the Three Hebrew boys to bow down to the image, they did not hesitate to stand up tall and be peculiar. They could have taken the opportunity to tie their shoes, but they didn't do that either, because it would seem like ...they were bowing down along with everybody else.

 In June 26, 2015, the following statement was posted on ADVENTIST ONLINE and elsewhere on the internet. "While at church on May 30, I was given information that the NAD Ministerial pre-session in Austin will be having a presentation to encourage churches to become safe places for LGBT Adventists with follow-up in many congregations IN THE FALL.” - Dave Ferguson, Director of Church Relations, Seventh-day Adventist Kinship

I quoted that statement in a sermon back in July ( and I said that this was coming. Well, the apostasy has gotten even worst. The name of the game is deception. The document was written in a way that many who read it would not see the push for tolerance of those who practice homosexuality among us. As a matter of fact, it not only promote the acceptance of the lifestyle, but it also went further to say that some are born that way and God understands. Therefore, they can join the church and be members and even hold positions in the Church, such as Pastor, Elder, Deacon etc...

To confirm what I just paraphrase above from the document, here's what it says on page 17: “Did God make me this way and if so, why?” While a discussion of the etiology of homosexuality is beyond the scope of this statement, most researchers state that many factors contribute to same-sex attraction and homosexual orientation. Some persons describe their attraction to the same sex as being among their earliest memories and contend that they would not have chosen the painful experience of being gay or lesbian. Simplistic answers to the “why” question should be avoided but we should be clear that all evil in this world is a consequence of the fall into sin (Rom 3:20, 25).

2. “If God made me this way, can He change me?” Recent literature DENIES the possibility that gay and lesbian persons can be changed, and even claims that change attempts are harmful. Other important studies show that there are OCCASIONAL reliable testimonies of such change among those that seek for faith-based counseling.46 However, does change mean that all same-sex attraction disappears? Some who are now in monogamous heterosexual marriages report that they still experience homosexual attractions, but that they choose not to act on them. Others have PLED with God to CHANGE THEM and have submitted to therapy with the goal of change but have not been changed. They have accepted their same-sex attraction as their life- long reality, and have chosen a life of celibacy. Working through this process, whatever the result, can be extremely difficult. As Christians, LOVE would dictate that we are SUPPORTIVE, within the framework of biblical standards, of people as they work to sort out this matter in their lives and that we AFFIRM THEIR IDENTITY as persons for whom Christ died.”

In other words, according to the above statement, some are born that and therefore Christ cannot give them victory over this sin.

To reinforce this idea that some were born that way, we find this statement on page 3 of the document: "In this statement we DIFFERENTIATE between homosexuality as an orientation (PROPENSITY, inclination, condition, disposition) and homosexual practice, although we do not enter the debate over whether or how much of the orientation is inherited or acquired, since no Scripture passages directly address this point. All human beings after the Fall of Adam and Eve “have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23).

What does the word PROPENSITY mean? According to the dictionary, the word means: "a strong NATURAL tendency to do something." It also means: "an inclination or NATURAL tendency to behave in a particular way."

As you read the document, which was published by Andrews University on OCTOBER 9th, 2015, it appears at first that they were making a stand for the Biblical definition of marriage, then came the following statement: “If I accept myself as a gay or lesbian person, do I have a place in the Church?” We are a Church made up of sinners saved by grace with love as its foundation (Matt 22:36–40) and such love should be shown equally to all members. Gay and lesbian members who choose to, and remain abstinent should be given the opportunity to participate in all church activities including leadership positions in the Church."

Ellen White , by the inspiration of God saw what was coming and how bad things would, said this: " Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of this danger. The omega will be of a MOST STARTLING NATURE." Then she said: "...The Omega would follow in a little while. I tremble for our people. These beautiful representations are similar to the temptation that the enemy brought to Adam and Eve in Eden. {7MR 188.2}

It was not by accident that the GC 2015 Session Brochure was promoting homosexuality. Take a look at it again.


A careful study of the document shows how their emphasis is on LOVE and tolerance. When you compare modern Israel of today AKA Regular Line (GC of SDA) and the ancient Israel, you see some similarities.

Ancient Israel (Pharisees) put a lot of emphasis on the LAW without Justification by Faith. Modern Israel on the other end put the emphasis on LOVE without the LAW and Justification by Faith.

Here's an example from the document: “They (LGBT) don’t want to be part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.” Although it is true that many SDA gay and lesbian persons have been hurt by the Church and that some have chosen to leave as a result, many LOVE the Church and want to be a part of its fabric. Many have grown up in the Church, participated in Pathfinders, and attended Adventist schools, and the beliefs and culture of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are a part of them. They want and need a HOME in which they can be WELCOMED and ACCEPTED even though their sexual orientation is DIFFERENT.

“LOVE demands that we CONTINUE TO LEARN about homosexuality and that we compassionately reflect God’s love for gay persons. LOVE also demands that we SUPPORT them when we see them being treated UNFAIRLY."

The Scriptures do not teach LOVE and tolerance, The Bible teaches LOVE and repentance. "But showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. -Exodus 20:6

Did you notice the phrase "LOVE demands that we CONTINUE TO LEARN." This is another way of opening the door for another study on this even though both the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy have already spoken and clear on this.


Conformity to the world demand and culture. Laws are being passed prohibiting religious Leaders to counsel gay and lesbian minors to change their sexual orientation. For example, on 2013 the State of California banned the so-called Gay Conversion Therapy. "A U.S. federal appeals court on Thursday upheld California’s law prohibiting licensed professionals from counseling gay and lesbian minors to change their sexual orientation...California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill to ban therapists, psychologists, doctors, and social workers from providing so-called “gay-conversion therapy” to patients under 18, last year." -{}

Another Article which was published in July 24, 2015 entitled: STATE FORBIDS PASTORS CALLING HOMOSEXUALITY 'SINFUL' "The state of Kentucky has begun imposing a religious test on volunteer pastor counselors in its youth division, insisting that they refrain from calling homosexuality “sinful” and dismissing those who cannot bend their religious faith to accommodate the state requirements."

Likewise, in May 20, 2015, CNN published an Article entitled: 'Oregon outlaws gay conversion therapy, joining two other states'. One paragraph from the Article give similar reasons like the SDA document gave, for why such therapy is harmful "The American Psychological Association has repudiated the practice of gay conversion therapy, citing the negative effects on patients and the lack of evidence to suggest that the practice is effective."-{}

The same Article also mentioned how the Obama Administration feels about this 'CONVERSION THERAPY' "President Barack Obama also called for a national ban on the practice last month, but religious groups and conservatives insist that such a ban would infringe on their religious freedom rights."... "The overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrates that conversion therapy, especially when it is practiced on young people, is neither medically nor ethically appropriate and can cause substantial harm," Obama's senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said in a statement. "As part of our dedication to protecting America's youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors."-{}

The other reason for this compromise and apostasy, has a lot to do with 501c3 Tax Exempt Status. An IRS Senior Officer said the following statement: ""I am not the only IRS employee who's wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn't owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they've always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean TO BE FREE of government CONTROL." {-Steve Nestor, IRS Senior Officer, IRS Publication 526, quoted by Peter Kershaw, In Caesar's Grip, self-published, 2000; See also Thomas Lake, Romans 13 In a Constitutional Republic, Xlibris Corporation, 2011, p. 9, ISBN: 9781456846886}

Barbara Ketay, a lawyer at the Biblical Law Center, wrote the following: "O.K. Pastors, Evangelists, Missionaries, Deacons, Trustees, Elders... listen up! Let's stop all the hocus-pocus, the illusions, the scams, the fairy-tales and the outright lies regarding what the 501(c)(3) incorporated church is and is not. For a change, let's deal with facts. For those of you who don't understand "facts," in the legal arena, facts are used and are supported by documented evidence which would be admissible in a legitimate court of law. Facts are not hyperbole! [i.e. exaggeration]" Then she goes on to explain list facts about what a 501c3 church corporation is by lawful state definition:

The creator of a corporation is the State.
The State is the sole authority and sovereign head over the corporation.
The corporation is subject to the laws of the State which limits its powers.
The corporation has no constitutionally protected rights.
The corporation is an artificial person.
The corporation submits to a State Charter declaring it is a creature of the State.
The corporation is created for the benefit of the public.
The corporation is a State franchise.
The corporation is a privilege granted by the State.

Translation: It means any church, ministry or Hospital that has a 501c3 Tax Exempt Status, is a corporation of the state.

The creator of your church is the State.
The State is the sole authority and sovereign head over your church.
Your church is subject to the laws of the State which limits its powers.
Your church has no constitutionally protected rights.
Your church is an artificial person.
Your church submits to a State Charter declaring it is a creature of the State.
Your church is created for the benefit of the public.
Your church is a State franchise.
Your church is a privilege granted by the State.

After the Supreme Court of the United States legalized homosexuality, the call quickly came to remove tax exempt status from those who still believe that homosexuality is a sin. From TIME Magazine June 28, 2015, the headline reads "Now’s the Time To End Tax Exemptions for Religious Institutions" "The Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage makes it clearer than ever that the government shouldn't be subsidizing religion and non-profits... The logic of gay-marriage rights could lead to a reexamination of conservative churches’ tax exemptions. {}

The Internal Revenue Service has a section on Tax Exempt Status entitled: {IRS publication 517 page 3} which explains the duties and requirements 501c3 Tax Exempt Status recipient. "... Individuals who are duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed by a religious body constituting a church or church denomination. They are given the authority to conduct religious worship, perform SACERDOTAL function... served the Eucharist (the Catholic sacrament of communion)

There are two words in the above statement that as Seventh Day Adventist Christians that we should be deeply concern about: The first one is the word 'Sacerdotal' which is a Roman Catholic definition which means sacred. And according to the dictionary, the word Sacerdotal means: relating to priests or a priesthood: priestly. The second word is 'Eucharist' which is the Catholic sacrament of communion.

In "The Trumpet Vol 9, Issue 6 Nov/Dec 2001" publication it is stated, "The most prominent and successful certified public accountant firm in the nation today, that specializes in keeping churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors of America that they not only have to be "ordained by God, but also the IRS."

The question is: Who are giving allegiance to? God or the Roman Catholic Church which is run by The Man of Sin (Pope Francis). "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." -Matthew 6:24


"For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves. - {Isaiah 3:9, 10)

This is indeed being fulfill as well in Modern Israel. "The sin of ancient Israel was in disregarding the expressed will of God and following their own way according to the leadings of unsanctified hearts. Modern Israel are fast following in their footsteps, and the displeasure of the Lord is as surely resting upon them. “-{TC vol 5, page 94}

In 1 Samuel 2:12, we find this title for the sons of Eli: "Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord." Keep in mind that these men were Priests ministering in the Sanctuary. But yet the Bible says that "they know the Lord". What did they do? Why were they call "the sons of Belial? I thought Eli was their biological Father.

Comparing Scripture with Scripture we get a much better understanding. The title "Sons of Belial" appear several times in the Bible. It always refer to what someone or a group of people were practicing. (See Deuteronomy 13:13, Judges 19:22, 20:13, 1 Samuel 2:12). But the main practice was homosexuality. "Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the MEN of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the MAN that came into thine house, that we may KNOW him." - {Judges 19:22}

So, what were the Priests (sons of Levi) practicing in the Church? Answer: homosexuality. What did the Conscientious few did as a result? Those who love the Lord and who did not want to be polluted by this, did they continue to support licentiousness in the Church? Answer: "As the men of Israel witnessed the corrupt course of the priests, they thought it safer for their families not to come up to the appointed place of worship. Many went from Shiloh with their peace disturbed, their indignation aroused, until they at last determined to offer their sacrifices themselves, concluding that this would be fully as acceptable to God, as to sanction in any manner the abominations practiced in the sanctuary (The Signs of the Times, December 1, 1881)

According to Ellen White, those who truly love the Lord did not support the General Conference in those days. Because by attending their churches, by default they would be supporting licentiousness. What about us? Are we experiencing the same thing today? And the answer is yes. What should we do then? Here is the answer: "There is a little hope in one direction: Take the young men and women, and place them where they will come as little in contact with OUR CHURCHES as possible, that the low grade of piety which is current in this day shall not leaven their ideas of what it means to be a Christian." {12MR 333.1}


The Bible is full of victorious precious promises for those who are living in sin, no matter what the sin is. Even the sin of homosexuality. The Apostle, in his first letter to the Corinthians Church, listed some of the things that the members used to practice before they surrendered their lives to Jesus. Licentiousness is also included in the list. "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such WERE some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

We read in 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5 "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" "I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." - Philippians 4:12, 13

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, conquered the enemy of souls and sin and made it possible for all of us to gain the victory and overcome sin. He says "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels." -{Revelation 2:5}…/seminary-statement-on-homosexuali…

In the book of Colossians chapter 2:6, 7, the Apostle Paul declares: "As ye have therefore RECEIVED Christ Jesus the Lord,image so walk ye in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the FAITH, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

And the question is: How did you receive Him in your life? Did you receive Him as a glorifying Christ at first or a Christ who suffered and died for your sins and mine?

The thief on the cross accepted and RECEIVED the humiliated and suffering Christ as His Lord and Savior, "And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss." And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom." {Luke 23:39-42}

While Jesus was being mocked, humiliated, suffering and dying like a common criminal, by faith, the thief on the cross ACCEPTED and RECEIVED the bleeding, the suffering, and the dying JESUS FIRST, (who was also hanging on a cross next to Him) And looking forward to the JESUS (Savior) who will deliver him from this body of death at His second coming. Then the promise came to him (the thief) immediately from the lips of the dying Savior, who has found some strength, and encouragement from the words that came out of the Thief's Lips and heart, to continue to hang on the cross for the salvation of mankind "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee Today, shalt thou be with me in paradise." -{Luke 23:43}

Likewise, The Centurion who was in charge of overseeing the crucifixion of the Son of God, ACCEPTED and RECEIVED the humiliated, the bleeding, the suffering and the dying Jesus as his Lord and SAVIOR while Jesus was still hanging on the cross. "when the centurion SAW what was done, he GLORIFIED God, saying, CERTAINLY this was a RIGHTEOUS MAN." -{Luke 23:47}

We read in the book of Acts that the Spirit of God led Philip on the path of an Ethiopian man who was reading from the Scroll of Isaiah 53 which describes the humiliated, the suffering, the bleeding and the dying Savior. "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth." -{Acts 8:32, 33}.

The Ethiopian wanted to know who that was, and so he asked Philip "I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? -{Acts 8:34}. Then the Scripture says that Philip "began at the same scripture (Isaiah 53), and preached unto him JESUS (Savior)."{Acts 8:35}. What happened next was similar to what the Thief on the cross and the Roman Centurion experienced, ACCEPTED and RECEIVED - the humiliated SAVIOR, Jesus Christ. "and the Eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." -{Acts 8:32, 33}

Here is what these men (the Thief, the Roman Centurion, and the Ethiopian)saw that the majority back then and today could not see: "Our Saviour’s JOY was in the uplifting and redemption of fallen men. For this He counted not His life dear unto Himself, but endured the cross, despising the shame." -{Steps to Christ, page 77}

Question now: What class do these men (the Thief, the Roman Centurion, and the Ethiopian) represent? Answer: They represent every single one of us, no matter what our background is and who are not ashamed of the Gospel which tells us in that order about the 1st: The humiliated, 2nd: The suffering, 3rd: The death, 4th: The Resurrected and 5th: The Savior imminent return.

The Ethiopian believed by faith that the Jesus of Isaiah 53 is the Son of God as well as the Thief on the cross and the Roman Centurion. Hence these men are part of the fulfillment of what gave the Son of God the joy, courage, and a passion for dying on the cross when He said
"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." -{John 12:32} Marvelous!

What about us living in these last days? How should our attitude be in regard to what the Son of God has accomplished in our behalf? Answer: "You gave yourself to God, to be His wholly, to serve and obey Him, and you took Christ as your Saviour. You could not yourself atone for your sins or change your heart; but having given yourself to God, you believe that He for Christ’s sake did all this for you. By faith you became Christ’s, and by faith you are to grow up in Him — by giving and taking. You are to give all,— your heart, your will, your service,—give yourself to Him to obey all His requirements; and you must take all,— Christ, the fullness of all blessing, to abide in your heart, to be your strength, your righteousness, your everlasting helper,— to give you power to obey. -{Steps to Christ 69.2}

Don't be ashamed of the cross of Jesus Christ!

"Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye must have a greater preparation than ye now have, for the day of the Lord cometh." - Our Father Cares, p. 88.

‘Collapse’ Preparations Push Skyrocketing Survival Gear Sales

As the U.S. economy tanks and the Mid-East appears poised for war, a chain of survival gear stores in Missouri has reported a jump in sales due to people getting ready for the possible ‘collapse’ of society.

Steve Dorsey, a manager at one of the Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters stores in Webster Groves told KMOX-Radio that: “We had to order fifty cases of the meals ready to eat to keep up with the demand in the past three months. That’s not normal. Usually we sell 20 to 30 cases in a whole year.”

When local stores start running out of MREs– specially packaged meals ready-to-eat, generally for the military– that seems to be a sign of strong public anxiety.

Steve Dorsey also told reporters that sales has been picking up since the Arab Spring revolts and with the continued specter of a global economic collapse hanging over America.

‘Collapse’ preparations are apparently not just for the outdoorsman either. Dorsey claimed that wealthy patrons from cities have been buying up the gear as well, telling KMOX that:

“I’ve had people in here that are very wealthy and they’ve spent thousands of dollars just on backpacks that they fill with survival gear, one for each person of their family and something where they can just grab a bag and get out of Dodge.”

The survivalists‘ plans for a collapse aren’t limited to any one route, according to Dorsey. Some are stocking up on freeze-dried meals for home, others are stashing food at remote locations outside of cities they would flee to in the event of major incident. In other cases, families are setting up communal safe havens where 20 or 30 people will gather in the event of a collapse.

Dorsey gave his analysis of the situation as “people are scared. They don’t know where this country is going. They think we’re on a downward spiral with just dramatic, crazy spending. People just don’t know what’s going to happen.”
That much seems increasingly obvious, whether one is out storing up on MREs or not.

Uprisings signal an emerging new world order?

Mikhail Gorbachev Says Uprisings Signal an Emerging New World Order

October 20, 2011  

“We are reaping the consequences of a strategy that is not conducive to cooperation and partnership, to living in a new global situation,” said Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union, to a crowd of 3,600 on Oct. 19 in the Allan P. Kirby Field House and many others via a live streaming broadcast in 13 locations from coast to coast, including northern Mexico. “People are asking ‘why do our leaders want to decide everything at the expense of the people?’”

Gorbachev was referring to the series of uprisings around the world including the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations here in the United States. “The world needs goals that will bring people together,” he said. “Some people in the United States were pushing the idea of creating a global American empire, and that was a mistake from the start. Other people in America are now giving thought to the future of their country. The big banks, the big corporations, are still paying the same big bonuses to their bosses. Was there ever a crisis for them? . . . I believe America needs its own perestroika.”

Lafayette President Daniel H. Weiss introduced Gorbachev, noting that his visit was a celebration of the new Oechsle Center for Global Education made possible by the support of Walter Oechsle ’57 and his wife, Christa. “I cannot think of a more fitting way in which to mark the creation of this vibrant new academic hub on our campus than with an address by the distinguished global leader who will present the center’s inaugural lecture, ‘Perspectives on Global Change.’”

Gorbachev was welcomed with a standing ovation.

“We have invited such a renowned international figure to address us tonight because what he has to say is enormously important,” continued Weiss, “…he exemplifies the type of visionary, transformative leadership which we hope the Oechsle Center will inspire – and prepare – our students to emulate as they engage with the world throughout their own lives and careers.”

In the opening of his lecture, the 80-year-old Gorbachev, who ended Communist rule in Eastern Europe and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990, reflected on the years of preparation and negotiation that led finally to the end of the Cold War. “When my people asked what I thought of Reagan, I said he is a dinosaur, and when Reagan’s people asked him what he thought of me, he called me a diehard Bolshevik.”

Nevertheless, progress was made over that first three-day meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1985 and others that followed, with the final result that both countries agreed that a nuclear war cannot be won “and must never be fought,” and that “our two nations will not seek military superiority.”

Gorbachev then described the difficult situation faced in Russia at the time. “We needed changes in our own country; the people were demanding change, saying ‘we can no longer live like this, we can no longer live as before.’ This required us, the leaders of the country, to propose something bold.” He said this led to perestroika, to an effort to push forward and end the totalitarian system, “to move toward democracy and freedom…and step by step towards a new economy, toward market economics. But the most important thing was freedom and glasnost.”

With posed demeanor and steady gaze, Gorbachev pressed on with his historical reflections. The translator kept pace with the even-toned Russian voice. Gesturing occasionally with his wide hands, Gorbachev’s presence as a world statesman was unmistakable.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Gorbachev said it was disastrous economically and socially, that nearly two-thirds of the people were in poverty, and that Americans did not realize it was not a good thing. “Americans came to Russia to celebrate our hardship.” He noted that many opportunities opened up “by glasnost, by freedom, by democracy were not used properly,” and the country is still in transition and has faced a lot of problems.

“The entire world situation did not develop properly,” said Gorbachev. “We saw deterioration where there should have been positive movement. My friend the late Pope John Paul II said it best. He said, ‘We need a new world order, one that is more stable, more humane, and more just.’ Others, including myself, have spoken about a new world order, but we are still facing the problem of building such a world order…problems of the environment, of backwardness and poverty, food shortages…all because we do not have a system of global governance.”

Gorbachev said it looks like the United States needs its military-industrial sector for the economy to prosper and if that is so, then it is a sick economy. “I do not say this to rankle anyone,” he explained. “I say it to my own people as well. We need to build a society where human beings are at the center. A lot of brain power is concentrated in the military-industrial sector; we need to shift that to other goals.”

In commenting on whether the objectives of Vladimir Putin, prime minister of Russia, who has announced he will run for a third term as president in the 2012 elections, are heading in the right direction, Gorbachev said the model that should be pursued is an association of nations, a union of nations that remain sovereign and politically independent and not a subjugation of nations.

“The Gorbachev Foundation has been working on this issue…we conducted a poll on the anniversary of the breakup of the union…70 percent said they regretted the disappearance, but only 9 percent said they wanted a restoration.

“Cooperation has to be based on equality and respect for the sovereignty of independent neighbors,” he continued, adding that if Putin and others who follow him develop a policy that respects this approach, then he will get support.

He commented on the changing world: “We cannot leave things as they were before, when we are seeing that these protests are moving to even new countries, that almost all countries are now witnessing such protests, that the people want change,” he said. “As we are addressing these challenges, these problems raised by these protest movements, we will gradually find our way towards a new world order.”

Gorbachev added, “I understand that you are inaugurating a center that will result in the kind of education and knowledge needed for these situations, and I congratulate you.”

“History is not preordained,” said Gorbachev. “We can influence history if we understand the most important things.”

Vatican Calls for New World Economic Order

October 24, 2011

The recent Vatican appeal for a radical reform of the global economic system, and to create an economic authority to manage it is nothing short of a frightening call to end global economic freedom, even suggesting that international financial activity should be taxed. Pure and simple, it is a leftist plan that reveals the true agenda of the Vatican. The statement, published by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is in harmony with Benedict XVI’s 2009 economic encyclical that “denounced a profit-at-all-cost mentality” as the cause of the financial crisis.

In other words, the Pope and the Vatican are using the crisis to promote their global plans. This has been predicted in Bible prophecy. Revelation 13:8 reveals an end-time global religion (verse 8), also includes economic sanctions on those who don’t participate (verse 17). But Revelation 18 reveals that the merchants of the earth work with the end-time religious power to fulfill mutual goals (verses 11, 15).

The only religious power in a position to fulfill that prophecy is the Vatican, or the Holy See, which is both a church and a state, and one which has global influence at a level where it can be involved in manipulating global economy and politics.

“Vatican pronouncements on the economy are meant to guide world leaders as well as the global church,” wrote Fox News.

In other words, the Vatican makes such statements in order to influence policy makers and legislators at the international level. While the statements often sound very good to the untrained ear, they signal specific policy suggestions in light of contemporary issues going on in the world.

For instance, when the Vatican or Catholic bishops talk about ending poverty, they are referring to wealth redistribution from the rich to the poor. To those who don’t understand what is behind these statements, they appear as pious and well-meaning, making the church look quite good in their eyes. However, the Vatican isn’t releasing much of its own wealth to redistribute it to the poor. So her statements are hollow.

The new Vatican pronouncement “highlights that reforms must assure that financial and monetary policies will not damage the weakest economies while also achieving fair distribution of the world’s wealth.”

“The Vatican proposal also called for a ‘minimum, shared body of rules to manage the global financial market,’ lamenting the ‘overall [lack] of controls’ on capital movements.”

“The plan, while couched in terms of a voluntary change for greater world good, would actually require that nations surrender their sovereignty to yet another new world body endowed with the authority to tax and manage all movement of capital between countries.” This would remove economic freedom, in the name of creating it, at least for poor nations.

The trouble is that poor nations can receive all the aid that rich nations want to give them, but it does not help them become richer. It does not even out the wealth. Corruption, intractable crime, and other problems that plague developing nations, remove the advantage that aid is supposed to provide. The aid is rendered ineffective.

Suggesting the discredited United Nations as the body to do the oversight of the new world body reveals something very important. The UN is woefully inept at managing anything of a global nature. The Vatican is either completely disconnected from reality, or is in league with these powers to promote her own agenda.

“If the United Nations Commission on Human Rights is any indication,” wrote Newsmax, “implementing the Vatican statement would achieve exactly the opposite of the desired result.”

“Far from creating a more just world economic order and empowering the powerless, a supranational financial regulatory scheme run by the U.N. would deprive billions of people across the globe of their economic freedom and concentrate power in the hands of a few faceless international bureaucrats.”

This would be much to the Vatican’s liking because she could then just concentrate on managing these few faceless international “merchants of the earth” in her own interests.

How does this form of social justice reconcile the necessary repression that goes with it, with the spiritual freedom of Christianity? The fact is that the Roman Catholic Church is not living up to its own Christian ideals in any area. Control of society is the goal of Rome, particularly its religion. Rome uses her religious pretense to gain acceptance, but works for enslavement of multitudes to her religious principles and control.

As in the past, this latest effort to use inherently coercive secular tools to achieve the Church’s social goals is a prelude to using inherently coercive secular tools to achieve the Church’s global religious new world order.

“While past Vatican pronouncements have condemned unfettered capitalism, the latest criticized ‘an economic liberalism that spurns rules and controls.’”

It is very interesting to watch as the Vatican spins it agenda into the public arena. “The statement also attacked ‘utilitarian thinking,’ saying what is useful to the individual does not always favor the common good.”

The emphasis on the “common good” is clearly a socialist perspective.

Rome never changes. “Every principle of the papacy that existed in past ages exists today. The doctrines devised in the darkest ages are still held. Let none deceive themselves. The papacy that Protestants are now so ready to honor is the same that ruled the world in the days of the Reformation, when men of God stood up, at the peril of their lives, to expose her iniquity. She possesses the same pride and arrogant assumption that lorded it over kings and princes, and claimed the prerogatives of God. Her spirit is no less cruel and despotic now than when she crushed out human liberty and slew the saints of the Most High. Great Controversy, page 571

North Dakota Sunday Law         ∑ July 27, 2011

The North Dakota Catholic Conference defended a state-wide Sunday closing law restricting Sunday shopping by saying that the law is in place to “preserve the common good by ensuring that society is not overtaken by work and profit.” The regulation benefits everybody, they said.

“The purpose of North Dakota’s Sunday closing law is not to impose times of worship. Nor is it to demand adherence to religious doctrine,” wrote Christopher Dodson, executive director of the North Dakota Catholic Conference.

While critics suggested that partial opening on Sundays does not “honor a Sabbath day,” Dodson responded by saying that the laws “‘serve a secular, not religious purpose.’ He said that all people need periods of rest and free time for the sake of their families, social lives and religious activities.” “Only when communities set aside time devoted to these functions can human persons prosper and develop,” he said.

Dodson pointed out that individuals, families and communities can experience negative consequences if they do not have common periods of rest.

Please note the idea of “common periods of rest” for members of society. This is a common argument used in favor of Sunday closing and Sunday rest laws. A common period of rest was one of the reasons why God gave the command to observe the seventh day. Now this very principle is being used to argue for the preservation of an alternate common rest day in place of the one God commanded.

Closing stores on Sunday mornings is not merely a secular purpose. That is usually when church is convened. And people naturally associate Sunday mornings with church. This suggests that there is more to the idea of Sunday closing laws than just secular purposes.

Also, Dodson did not fail to mention Roman Catholic Social doctrine when he said that the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, “describes public authorities’ duty ‘to ensure that, for reasons of economic productivity, citizens are not denied time for rest and divine worship.’”

In spite of his own denials that the law serves a religious purpose, Dodson, who represents the Catholic Church in North Dakota nevertheless, includes in its purpose the human need for “divine worship.” He gives away the underlying purpose for Sunday closing. It is so that people can attend church. While they can attend church even if the shops are open, the Sunday closing law removes the temptation to shop, in theory, thus boosting church attendance by providing a common free time, when people normally go to church. Of course the Catholic Church doesn’t want to say that openly, but fundamentally, Sunday blue laws, as they are called, have this underlying purpose.

If common free time and store closing laws were provided on Thursday morning, the law would indeed be secular since very few, if anyone, goes to church on Thursday. But the fact that the law is coordinated to restrict shopping on Sunday morning inherently tends toward an underlying religious purpose.

The fact that the Roman Catholic Church is defending and promoting the so-called “secular” Sunday laws undermines the argument that they are secular. The Roman Catholic Church is a religion and is inherently promoting its own religious purposes.

Dodson concludes by saying that “Sunday closing laws are not about honoring the Sabbath day… They are about honoring people and families.” But the law doesn’t actually give a purpose. He is making that up. It is his opinion and that of the Catholic Church. The North Dakota law is inherently religious in its language, and it says not a word about families.

Interestingly, the wording also states that the law does not apply to a person who “in good faith observes a day other than Sunday as the Sabbath,” as long as he closes his business to the public on the same time period on the day he observes.

This provision does protect the minority faiths that observe a day other than Sunday as the Sabbath, but the way it is worded, clearly implies that the whole idea of the law in the first place, is for a religious purpose.

The notion that Sunday closing laws benefit the “common good” is essentially an argument for the cooperation between the church and the state. The “common good” refers to the majority of society. In other words, so long as the majority supports Sunday closing laws, the common good is served. However, majority decisions do not usually protect the rights of minority groups, particularly those of a religious minority.

Those defending Sunday laws have to misrepresent the laws themselves in order to support their claims.  





Which day of the week is really God's Sabbath?    
It's perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of not only the Holy Bible, but also the history of mankind and Christianity, and it's all summed up in a single day: "The Seventh Day."

It was first mentioned the day after the first man, Adam, was created, as God set apart the seventh day of the week from the other six. And it is so important, God made it one of the famous Ten Commandments, telling us to remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy and not do any work that day.

But this day of rest that was observed for thousands of years on the seventh day of the week, Saturday, has mysteriously been transformed into a special reverence for the first day of the week, Sunday. In fact, if you ask Christians today, "Which day is the Sabbath of God?" most will undoubtedly answer "Sunday."

Just how did this enigmatic change take place? Now, you don't have to sift through dozens of books, online articles and encyclopedias to find the answer.

A fantastic, five-DVD television documentary called "The Seventh Day: Revelations from the Lost Pages of History" chronicles how the Sabbath day of the Bible was observed, fought for and challenged over millennia of human existence.

"Since the seventh-day Sabbath has such rich meaning, and since it is part of the Ten Commandments, why is it not more widely observed today? Good question," said Hal Holbrook, host of the "The Seventh Day."


In the archives and libraries of international scholarship, the documentary's researchers have discovered the secret strategies that changed the Christian day of rest on Saturday to the primary day of worship on Sunday.

"One novel approach took the form of a letter, a letter that supposedly came directly from heaven," noted Holbrook.

It was actually a fraudulent epistle demanding the rigorous observance of Sunday, an example of the heavy-handed attempts to manipulate the consciences of medieval Christians.

"A letter from heaven," said Holbrook. "Think about it. Who wouldn't want one of those to support their opinions?"

The promotion of Sunday, commonly called "the Lord's Day," was an integral part of the Reformation-era conflict over Church authority.

The story of the Sabbath illuminates the heroic struggle for religious liberty fought through long centuries of repression and inquisition.

Holbrook said, "The power of the Inquisition was subtle and insidious. They used threats of torture to coerce people to give evidence they needed."

"The Seventh Day" presents a thorough exposť of the epic battle over the weekly Sabbath tracing the long-lost evidence of religious practice through thousands of years of culture and tradition, supported by the expert testimony of more than 50 historians and theologians from around the world.

The story of "The Seventh Day" spans the ages. Some of its heroes are counted among the best-known heroes on the stage of religious history. Others, equally heroic, played out their roles in mere obscurity, their lives defining the true meaning of courageous faith and passion for truth.

Finally, after more than 15 years of research, the story can be told, the story of a day enshrined in history, tradition and Scripture.

Holbrook said, "From the Earth, as it came from the Creator's hand, to the perfectly restored New Earth, the Sabbath stands as a sanctuary in time, transcending history and projecting its promise of rest into the eternal future."

"The Seventh Day" is a surprising look at history and its effect on the rhythm of life in the 21st century and beyond.

One poor harvest away from chaos'    
Hunger pains: millions of the world?s poorest people and the state of the global economy are threatened by the food price rises
'Within a decade," promised the top representative of the world's mightiest country, "no man, woman or child will go to bed hungry."
Dr Henry Kissinger, at the height of his powers as US Secretary of State, was speaking to the landmark 1974 World Food Conference. Since then, the number of hungry people worldwide has almost exactly doubled: from 460 million to 925 million.
And this week the airwaves have been full of warnings that the formidable figure could be about to increase further, as a new food crisis takes hold. Some experts warned that the world could be on the verge of a "nightmare scenario" of cut‑throat competition for the control of shrinking supplies.
The cause of such alarm? On Wednesday, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) reported that global food prices had hit a record high and were likely to go on rising, entering what Abdolreza Abbassian, its senior grains economist, called "danger territory".
That is bad enough for Britain, adding to the inflationary pressures from the soaring cost of oil and other commodities, not to mention the VAT increase. But for the world's poor, who have to spend 80 per cent of their income on food, it could be catastrophic.

Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, warns that the rising prices are "a threat to global growth and social stability", and Nicolas Sarkozy has identified them as a priority for the G20, which he chairs this year.

Already they are higher than in 2008, when they drove the tally of the malnourished briefly above a billion for the first time in history, and caused riots in countries as far apart as Indonesia, Cameroon and Mexico. That ended nearly two decades during which the number of hungry people had stayed the same, while the world population grew by 1.2 billion, so that the proportion of an increasing humanity without enough to eat steadily fell.

But the crisis of two years ago, and the one that may be unfolding now, are polar opposites of the one behind the World Food Conference. Then, bad harvests had produced a real shortage. Now, we have bumper crops: the past three years have produced the biggest harvests ever. The issue is not one of supply, but of demand.

The mushrooming middle classes of India and China helped cause
the 2008 price hike by eating more meat, which, in turn, mops up grain: it can take, for example, 8lb of cereals to produce one of beef. And cars contributed as well as cows. Bio fuels transferred over 100 million tons of cereals from plates to petrol tanks: to fill a 4 x 4 tank requires enough grain to feed a poor person for a year. Speculation, too, helped drive prices up.

The same factors are at work again, though fortunately the hungry are not yet as badly hit. This is partly because the price of rice, which feeds almost half of humanity, has remained relatively stable; and partly because it is mainly the higher-quality wheat and maize – eaten by the better off – that has got much more expensive.

But things remain volatile, since the world has heavily run down its grain stocks over the past decade, and much of what remains is in China, which does not readily release them even when prices are high. So the present abrupt rises have been brought about by a harvest that is only 1.4 per cent down on last year, and prices remain unusually hostage to the weather.

So if it is all so precarious at times of bumper harvests, what will happen if – or rather, when – we get a really bad one? That is what is worrying Lester Brown, president of the Washington-based Earth Policy Institute, whom I first met at the 1974 conference. A former champion tomato-grower – then an enthusiast for the Green Revolution, now a leading prophet of danger and one of the first to forecast the present situation – he is publishing a book on the issue on Wednesday.

"The reality," he says, "is that the world is only one poor harvest away from chaos. We are so close to the edge that politically destabilising food prices could come at any time."

Imagine, he says, if last year's Moscow heatwave – which sent average temperatures 14F above normal, and contributed to this year's smaller harvest – next hit Chicago and the Midwestern bread basket. The US harvest could slump by 40 per cent, sending prices "off the chart" and cause "the global economy to start to unravel". As the climate changes, such extremes are likely to be more common.

Back in 1974, Kissinger spoke of the "thin edge between hope and hunger". A generation on, it is time to take it seriously.
