God Bless A Godless And Wicked America?

LibertyisShamed

We live in a postmodern, post-Constitutional and post-God nation. Do not be deceived. There is a war on religious liberty, the true target is Christianity.

Perfectly stated by Todd Starnes from Fox News.

The answer is NO.  If the churches of this nation will not repent – why should God bless a nation that spits in His Face and kicks Him out of the country while His followers sit idle on their hands and remain silent in the face of evil?

 

Can God bless a Godless America?

The White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty. Public schools are indoctrinating our children with the gospel of secularism. Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The American family is in ruins. What was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong.

Our nation stands on a precipice. Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Kelly Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, penned an open letter to the American people last year. Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, they warned. The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.

The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.

“Our Founding Fathers considered religious liberty our ‘first freedom,’ and the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest,” the men wrote. “They understood that one’s right to worship God and follow his conscience according to the principles of his religious faith was foundational to civic tranquility. A man whose religious faith was repressed could never be a loyal citizen since the state was usurping his first allegiance and costing him his primary freedom. This is one of the most important distinctions that makes America an exceptional nation — if not the most important.”

Both groups document more than 600 recent examples of religious hostility. Six hundred. American stories. Our stories. Their documentation included many stories I have covered during my career at Fox News Channel.

The Obama administration wants to force religious organizations and Christian business owners to provide insurance for birth control and abortion-inducing drugs in direct violation of their religious beliefs. The military conducted training sessions that labeled Evangelical Christians and Catholics as examples of religious extremists. The Internal Revenue Service launched investigations into pro-life organizations, demanding to know the contents of their prayers.

This is happening right here, right now, in the United States of America. We are under attack from within — from an enemy who wants to remove any mention of God from the public marketplace.

In recent days, a Florida child was bullied by his public schoolteacher for reading his Bible during “free reading time.” The teacher was recorded on a voice mail message telling the child’s parents that “he’s not permitted to read those books in my classroom.”

Seventh-day Adventist preacher Eric Walsh was suspended with pay from his job as the public health director of Pasadena, Calif., after critics exposed videos of sermons in which he preached that homosexuality is a sin. Pasadena officials told local reporters the pastor was placed on paid leave while they investigate his sermons and determine whether he has the ability to lead a department that he’s headed since 2010.

A while back Rev. Billy Graham penned a letter expressing his dismay over the moral decline of the nation, declaring that his “heart aches for America and its deceived people.”

“The farther we get from God, the more the world spirals out of control,” Graham wrote, noting that the nation seems to be going out of its way to remove God from the public arena. “Just a few weeks ago in a prominent city in the South, Christian chaplains who serve the police department were ordered to no longer mention the Name of Jesus in prayer,” he wrote, noting that officers were only allowed to pray to “the being in the room.”

“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone —  except God,” he continued.

We ask God to bless America, but we elected a president whose pastor asked God to damn America. We ask God to bless America, but we slaughter millions of unborn babies. We ask God to bless America, but we silence His children.

God bless America? We should be on our knees asking for His mercy instead. The time has come for people of faith to rise up and claim their Ebenezer. We need patriots who will take back this land. We need patriots who will say we are still one nation under God.

The storm clouds are gathering. The winds of revolution are blowing, friends. Religious liberty is under attack.

Years ago the Christian songwriter Steve Green penned a song titled, “Find Us Faithful.” It was a prayer that all who came after us would find this generation of believers faithful. The call still rings true today.

In these early days of the 21st century, the fire is flickering and the footprints are few. Storm clouds are gathering. The winds of persecution are blowing. But friends, no matter how difficult these days have become, let not your heart be troubled.

The time has come, brothers and sisters, my fellow countrymen. Who among you is willing to take a stand for religious liberty? Who among you is will to risk everything for the cause of Christ? Who among you is willing to rise up and declare that we are still one nation under God?

“If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” the Scriptures declare.

The most pressing problem facing America can’t be solved in Washington, D.C. True hope and change can’t be found at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It can only be found at the foot of the cross
on Calvary.

Our government may spy on our phone lines. It may throw us in jail. It may take away our photography shops and bakeries. It may demand to know the content of our prayers. But we will not be bullied. We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced.

Obama Government Lists 72 Types of Americans It Considers “Extremists / Potential Terrorists”

White-terrorists

Official U.S. Government documents list Conservative, Christian and Patriotic Americans as a danger to the state.

In addendum to my entry from yesterday, is this concise listing of whom the U.S. Government now considers to be an extremist, terrorist and threat to the nation.

Completely absent from these documents, is ANY mention of Islam or Jihadists.  Instead, the Obama regime considers anyone opposed to abortion, Communism, illegal Mexicans, or served in the military, or read alternative news sites  – as potential domestic terrorists, along with 67 other types of Americans.

I again warn – history teaches that without exception – once a government lists demonize certain groups of their people as a threat to their state, the state ALWAYS ends up criminalizing and then EXTERMINATING those groups and people they put on such lists.  Without exception.

Let that sink in.  Those are Satan’s fingerprints, he sticks to what works.  Genocidal madmen and Leftist Utopianists ALWAYS make lists and warn the populace of the threat of targeted citizens, before rounding them up for prisons, camps and extermination.  Or they do as Stalin did, and simply starve entire populations to death.  Because the state has been demonizing their targets, and blaming them for the misery being wrought upon the rest of the nation – once the round-ups begin, the populace applauds the state’s actions under the promise of restoration to normalcy.

Michael Snyder kindly lists all 72 types of American citizens the Obama regime considers to be a ‘problem’ or ‘threat’ to the country.

72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner?  Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order?  Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents.  At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly.  The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists.  But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.  And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.  So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke.  The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them.  And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

46. Those that are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”

47. Those that are “reverent of individual liberty”

48. Those that “believe in conspiracy theories”

67. Those that have a negative view of the United Nations

68. Those that are opposed “to the collection of federal income taxes”

69. Those that supported former presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr

70. Those that display the Gadsden Flag (“Don’t Tread On Me”)

71. Those that believe in “end times” prophecies

72. Evangelical Christians

The groups of people in the list above are considered “problems” that need to be dealt with.  In some of the documents referenced above, members of the military are specifically warned not to have anything to do with such groups.

We are moving into a very dangerous time in American history.  You can now be considered a “potential terrorist” just because of your religious or political beliefs.  Free speech is becoming a thing of the past, and we are rapidly becoming an Orwellian society that is the exact opposite of what our founding fathers intended.

Please pray for the United States of America.  We definitely need it.

Can We Awaken From This MarxoFascist Totalitarian Nightmare?

Tyranny's-March

A prophetic but chilling warning about how America is repeating the history of past Republics by accepting and preferring  a totalitarian form of government.

“…Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and … accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. ” The Declaration of Independence.

Many Americans are awakening to a reality that the country they once knew is gone, replaced by a “Progressive” Marxist/Socialist Oligarchy.  The past week reveal that the Obama regime has used the government’s agencies to wage war on Americans, silence Christians and Conservative groups, spy on the media and private citizens, harass citizens who attempt to involve themselves in politics, and punish political opposition to the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama is imposing on the country.

Ambassador Alan Keyes asks a question this author has been asking since 2008 – can this country awaken itself from it’s stupor?  Can this nightmare of a totalitarian Marxist state be stopped? Or are we too late and comfortable with it already??

Methinks it’s the latter.  A majority clearly prefer tyranny to liberty, and yet they will call it freedom.

Totalitarian Subversion- Can we Awaken from the Nightmare?

Whatever Obama, Hilary Clinton, Susan Rice and other Obama faction officials were seeking to achieve with their lies about the terrorist murders of U.S. officials in Benghazi; whatever the full extent of the ideologically motivated political abuses at the IRS, one thing is clear. Except for mindless apparatchiks, thoughtlessly loyal to the Obama cult, (like Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton, for example) no sane person can now consider it crazy or irrational to distrust the words and actions of those presently controlling the U.S. government. These scandals show the self-serving ‘chutzpah’ of Obama’s snide dismissal of people who “warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems….They’ll warn that tyranny [is] always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.”

In one respect, Obama’s words ring true. Tyranny isn’t just around the corner. It is already upon us. Its forces are not yet confident enough to employ the ‘Gestapo’ tactics routinely associated with socialist dictatorship. But they have obviously been using their control of the Federal bureaucracy to repress and intimidate individuals and grassroots organizations, preoccupying their time and depleting their resources. Should we be encouraged by the fact that these abuses are now being openly discussed and decried? Only if the stir actually leads to actions that effectively curtail them, while establishing am oversight mechanism that assures continually formal and public scrutiny, to make sure that they cannot be repeated without an immediate outcry.

But what if no such action is taken? Inaction is likely, given the collaborative mindset of the GOP leaders in the U.S. House, and the Obama faction’s solid majority in the U.S. Senate. If it happens these abuses will recur in a more virulent form. And they will spread, like an infection treated with an inadequate course of antibiotics. People will realize that the abuses are still in train, and that their elected officials have done nothing to reduce each individual’s vulnerability. Increasingly tinged with fear, the angry public reaction against the abuses will wane. Spreading from one individual to another, as episodes of abuse proliferate, this individual fear will gradually intensify until it dominates the public mind. This is the way tyranny subverts peace of mind.

Is this part of the reason the Obama faction volunteered these revelations? Is it part of the reason elements of the elitist faction are so willing to air this dirty laundry? If no effective controls are put in place, the result could generate a corrosive atmosphere of fearful expectation, that predisposes people to forestall abuse by submitting to those responsible for it. Was it from wise precaution against this corrosion of the spirit of liberty that, unlike Barack Obama, America’s founders saw it as ”…proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties”; and went on to praise the “free men of America” who “did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise…They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.” (James Madison, Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments)

Barack Obama is a man whose ruthless ideological consistency leads him to disdain the natural rightness of human life, in its most affecting and helpless form. For example, his advocacy of unconstrained access to abortion is so extreme that he countenanced infanticide in order to assure it. He understood and frankly accepted that this ruthless position was a necessary consequence of the logic that justifies so-called “abortion rights”. The heartily soul destroying effect of his logical extremism was recently revealed at trial, in the jocular morbidity of Kermit Gosnell, who now stands convicted of such murders.

Given his calculated fanaticism, Obama is just the type to deploy the heartless bureaucratic, police and military forces of government against citizens whose only crime is to exercise the rights that are their birthright, under God and the Constitution. Today public attention focuses on the IRS, abused to attack the resources and curtail the political activity of those who oppose the design for despotism. Soon and very soon it will be the IRS and the police, abused to attack free speech and the free exercise of religion. Then it will be Homeland security and local police forces, under the guise of anti-terrorist martial law, abused to arrest and detain evangelical Christians, Catholics, homeschoolers, and those who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. Then it will be OBama’s fondly imagined domestic army, as large and well-funded as the military, moving against States whose officials who refuse to acquiesce in the unconstitutional abridgment of the residual sovereign rights guaranteed to the States, respectively, and to the people, by the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment.

Please don’t make the mistake of believing that this design for despotism is exclusively the sinister ambition of Democrats like Obama. For years I tried to warn people in the GOP about Obama’s commitment to totalitarian communist approaches to politics and economics. For years I tried to help them recognize his rejection of the principles whereby the requirements of God-endowed right limit the just powers of government. For years I inveighed against his pro-abortion extremism; his disdain for the God-endowed rights of the natural family; his hostility to America’s international and national security requirements.

I gradually came to realize that the leadership of the Republican Party is incapable of responding effectively to Obama’s treacherous betrayal of constitutional self-government, or even admitting it. Why? Because that leadership is itself in the grip of forces that differ from Obama only in the more openly self-serving style of their betrayal. They purport to represent and speak for the large plurality of Americans loyal to the Constitution. They pretend to respect the ideas of God-endowed unalienable rights and limited government from which the Constitution derives. But they have in fact abandoned every goal of political life except the successful pursuit of governmental power, and the self-aggrandizing abuses it makes possible.

In the WND article published on Friday I argued that, because the IRS “overturns the priority of natural right over humanly instituted authority”, it is a design woven into the fabric of tyranny. In similar fashion, because it has substituted power for justice as the end of civil society, the elitist faction’s sham two-party system is also a design woven into the fabric of tyranny. When America’s founders framed our form of government, they did so with justice in view (see Federalist #51). Institutions like the IRS and the elitist faction’s sham two-party system are like viruses. Though written in the language the founders used, they have been introduced into the program of American government in order to rewrite its code for a different purpose. They exist, as it were, to reweave the whole cloth of American life. They are part of a phalanx of similarly viral mechanisms, including now the public schools, and much of the news and entertainment media, that have been transformed from factors of liberty into engines of elitist totalitarian indoctrination and control.

This is, in the tactical sense, the realization of the Antonio Gramsci’s comprehensive vision of totalitarian, socialist, political subversion. We can awaken from it, as from a stifling nightmare, but only if we are willing to exert our minds to see all its fabrications for what they are. Only then will we cease to be manipulated and subdued by the delusory hopes and fears they represent.

Christians Are ‘Enemies of the Constitution': Military Confirms It Will Court Martial Christians Who Express Their Faith

wounded_withCross

Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military is stated to be “treason,” an act of “spiritual rape” and that Christians are “enemies of the Constitution” according to new guidelines being established in Obama’s military.

The road to persecution and eradication of Christians in what once was America is being set before our eyes.  Empowering the State to persecute Christians for their faith is about to take it’s first step to becoming policy in the military, where Obama is Commander-In-Chief.   I refer you to the entry from last week that reported that Obama’s military has declared Christianity a ‘Hate Group’.  That declaration was not an accident, typo or misunderstanding.  It was the justification for the criminalization and punishment of Christians within the military.

Under Obama, the Homosexuals were led out of the closet and celebrated, and now Christians are being forced into the closet and threatened to don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t mention or hint at their faith .

As most Americans rolled their eyes and ignore these patterns of hostility to patriotic American Christians, Obama’s regime is now quietly implementing the machinations to criminalize the Christian faith from inside the military.  Interestingly, Islam is not under the same auspices of consideration – even after the Jihad attack on Fort Hood.   However, Christians are specifically labelled and declared in official documents to be everything from ‘domestic terrorists'; ‘extremists’ and a ‘hate group’.  This is no surprise to those of us whom have been warning about where this would go since it was discovered in April of 2009 that the DHS had officially listed Right Wing Christians as ‘extremists’ without any mention of Jihadist Islam or Muslims in their report to Law Enforcement.

Today, Breitbart reports that Obama’s Pentagon has confirmed IT WILL  develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

Understand this now – the military will PROSECUTE any Christian in the military who even expresses or shares their faith in Christ.  The penalty for a court martial could be imprisonment and/or expulsion with dishonor from service.

As I said before, Obama’s transformation of our society is one that is a harbinger of horror as other Godless Leftist regimes of the last century illustrate.  A military unmoored from biblical morality and it’s soldiers of the Judeo-Christian principles and ethics, is a military that will be used to commit horrors at the request of an evil leadership without remorse from it’s soldiers.  Such a military could be used against American citizens without any shred of compassion to further the aims of a perverted leadership.

PENTAGON CONFIRMS IT MAY COURT MARTIAL SOLDIERS WHO SHARE CHRISTIAN FAITH

NoArmysoldierspray

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…”. 

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)

Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.

So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.

This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not allow chaplains (or any service members, for that matter), to say anything about their faith that others say led them to think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life. It’s difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.

In response to the Pentagon’s plans, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC), said on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning:

It’s a matter of what do they mean by “proselytizing.” …I think they’ve got their defintions a little confused. If you’re talking about coercion that’s one thing, but if you’re talking about the free exercise of our faith as individual soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, especially for the chaplains, they I think the worst thing we can do is stop the ability for a soldier to be able to exercise his faith.”

FRC has launched a petition here which has already collected over 30,000 signatures, calling on Secretary Hagel is stop working with Weinstein and his anti-Christian organization to develop military policy regarding religious faith.

Notice that it is only Christianity that will be prohibited from expression.  Islam and other religions are not affected.  The fact is that Chuck Hagel is a Muslim Convert, and his hostility to both Israel and Christianity was well documented during the Senate Hearings, and the Ruling Class confirmed him to the post anyway. Petitions are not going to dissuade him towards implementing Obama’s policy of persecuting Christians while uplifting other religious proselytes like the Muslim Brotherhood. Drumming out Christians from the military and society appears to be one of the goals.  If you note history – the military and government are usually the first place a regime’s political enemies are driven from before they are criminalized and eventually driven from society as a whole.

We can pray God would move on Hagel’s heart with these petitions – but it is becoming increasingly apparent – God has given our nation over to tyrants from within.  Soon I fear – what our Brothers and Sisters in the Faith have suffered in much of the rest of the world, will soon become part of our daily life here as well.  Matthew 24 will finally be realized on a people who have no experience with it, since they had protections from The Almighty since Christians first set foot on these shores.  A winnowing of whom will be left standing in the faith may be in our very near term futures.

UPDATE: Townhall has their opinion about this.  I think their title is incorrect.  It should actually read:

 “This Is What Tyranny Feels Like”

Weinstein

President Obama’s new “religious tolerance” consultant to the Pentagon, Mikey Weinstein, wants Christian military service members who openly talk about their faith in uniform to be charged with treason, which is a crime punishable by death according to military law.

By employing his consulting services, and as Commander-in-Chief, President Obama is effectively endorsing Weinstein’s recently voiced and written views such as: “Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized [sic] and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”

Weinstein’s inflamed word picture helps the rest of us understand what the world looks like to those who live with their eyes wide shut and sort of sounds like that old cereal commercial… except this time Mikey doesn’t like it – Christianity, that is, so no one else should. And Mikey’s giving the rest of us an object lesson in intolerance by showing us what liberal secularists are about: “It’s our way, or we shut you down.” In this case, Obama’s anti-Christian hit man, Weinstein, proposes that honorable men and women in the military who speak about their faith should be charged with a crime worthy of capital punishment. Smells like bull to me.

In recent months, there has been a push against Christianity in the military. A few notables include a military training instructor labeling Jews, Christians, Catholics and Mormons as extremists alongside al Qaeda. The Army blocked a Southern Baptist website, citing it displayed “hostile content,” (the Pentagon has since blamed it on a malware glitch), and an Army email was distributed warning fellow soldiers to beware of Christian ministry “hate groups.” Each of these incidents could be reasoned-away individually, but they all have one thing in common: Intolerance has an unmistakable stench.

News has it that Mr. Weinstein endorsed the Southern Poverty Law Center’s recent statement listing certain Christian organizations as hate groups. He also whole-heartedly agreed with comments made by radical Army Lt. Col. Jack Rich, who told his subordinates to be on the lookout for dangerous Christian soldiers who should be expelled from the military for their beliefs.

Lauding the Lt. Colonel’s statement in a Huffington Post anti-Christian hit piece April 16, Weinstein said, “We should as a nation effusively applaud Lt. Col. Rich,” and said America should go further to “vigorously support the continuing efforts to expose pathologically anti-gay, Islamaphobic, and rabidly intolerant agitators for what they are: die-hard enemies of the United States Constitution. Monsters, one and all. To do anything less would be to roll out a red carpet to those who would usher in a blood-drenched, draconian era of persecutions, nationalistic militarism, and superstitious theocracy.”

Gee, if I didn’t know better, I’d think he was speaking about why we are fighting the war on terror.

Religious intolerance reached the proverbial Foggy Bottom in the same article when Weinstein described Christians as “those evil fundamentalist Christian creatures” who hide behind the “facades” of “family values” and “religious liberty.” The same attributes could be also pinned to America’s founders, whom I suppose Mr. Intolerance would also deem as subversives.

It is obvious, foamy-mouthed Mikey has a bone to pick with Christians, and he’s found an effective way to get what he wants by working for the president and the president’s new military “yes man” Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Our fine men and women of the military, who are part of a historically noble institution, deserve so much better but are once again the punching bag at the expense of this intolerant administration.

Warning America of Coming Destruction and Judgment

Americas-Judgment

The parallels of the fate of Ancient Israel suffered are crying out to America.  Judgment is soon at our door.

Jonathan Cahn, author of ‘The Harbinger’ and pastor/rabbi of Beth Israel Messianic Congregation of Wayne, NJ, gives the key note address at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. 01/21/13.  As a Watchman on the Wall, he is warning America from the pages of scripture of our national sins that will soon condemn us to judgment.

Our first clear warning for our nation to repent was the removal of God’s Hedge of Protection, and America’s repentance was short lived.  Two years after 9-11, America and her courts were removing God’s Commandments from courthouses and public spaces.  Since then, God and Jesus Christ are ridiculed, scorned, mocked and His followers called ‘intolerant’, ‘bigots’ and worse by a growing segment of this nation’s civil and cultural leadership.

The warning given here in this message is one many servants of God have been proclaiming of late. But even His Churches have become lukewarm and salt-less, ignoring the warnings and messages.  Instead they find solace in a gospel of wealth and prosperity they have constructed for themselves, recreating Jesus into an image that fits the decadence and self-absorbed culture

Youtube has been busy removing this video as offensive almost as soon as it is uploaded.  The warning of truth is considered offensive to this generation and efforts to marginalize and silence those whom God has anointed for that work would suffer the same fate as Ancient Israel’s prophets of God should this people be empowered to do so.

This message is powerful. Bold.  Illustrating biblical prophesy and the parallels our nation is facing.

Pastor Cahn shared these words of Abraham Lincoln, “And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God … and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.” My eyes filled with tears. How I long for a leader of our country to speak such words now.

Unfortunately, as with much of American Churchianity – this event was attended only by like minded brethren and has already been afforded its contempt in mass media coverage while the masses gathered to praise Obama as sovereign and lift their prayers to … apparently the spirits of our ancestors.

Jesus said, “He who has ears, let him hear!”

Isaiah 6:9-10
And He said, “Go, and tell this people:
‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
“Make the heart of this people dull,
And their ears heavy,
And shut their eyes;
Lest they see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart,
And return and be healed.”

UPDATE: Youtube has scrubbed all uploads of this keynote address and keeps doing so within minutes of someone uploading a new version.  In all cases it says the video was ‘removed by the user’.  The reason given for this on some Christian forums is supposed ‘legal threats have been made’ because the Presidential Seal is present and Cahn has not been given permission to share, publish, broadcast or otherwise exhibit his keynote address.

Thankfully this video is currently being hosted at Vimeo – but given how quickly this is being taken down by ‘those who uploaded it’ – makes for interesting speculation.

The parallel of Ancient Israel’s destruction and America is cited in Isaiah 9:10-21.  Replace Jacob with ‘The West” and Ephraim and Manasseh with America or your town – and the warning is consistent with how God warns a nation of HIS people who called themselves by HIS Name – to repent or face destruction.

The Lord sent a word against Jacob,
And it has fallen on Israel.
All the people will know—
Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria—
Who say in pride and arrogance of heart:
“The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild with hewn stones;
The sycamores are cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars.”
Therefore the Lord shall set up
The adversaries of Rezin against him,
And spur his enemies on,
The Syrians before and the Philistines behind;
And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth.
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.
For the people do not turn to Him who strikes them,
Nor do they seek the Lord of hosts.
Therefore the Lord will cut off head and tail from Israel,
Palm branch and bulrush in one day.
The elder and honorable, he is the head;
The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail.
For the leaders of this people cause them to err,
And those who are led by them are destroyed.
Therefore the Lord will have no joy in their young men,
Nor have mercy on their fatherless and widows;
For everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer,
And every mouth speaks folly.
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.
For wickedness burns as the fire;
It shall devour the briers and thorns,
And kindle in the thickets of the forest;
They shall mount up like rising smoke.
Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts
The land is burned up,
And the people shall be as fuel for the fire;
No man shall spare his brother.
And he shall snatch on the right hand
And be hungry;
He shall devour on the left hand
And not be satisfied;
Every man shall eat the flesh of his own arm.
Manasseh shall devour Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh;
Together they shall be against Judah.
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.

America is not heeding the warning, neither are most churches willing to hear or preach this message.

In fact, during this impassioned message as you watch, especially near the end, watch men in ties and suits and women walking around the stage behind and in front TALKING while Pastor Cahn is still passionately preaching. The amount of DISRESPECT for one giving such a message is even self evident among those attending a prayer breakfast. They were not listening – they were busy talking to one another – a HUGE amount of disrespect to the Word of God being expounded upon by those people I am sure think highly of themselves because they attended.

In a way, that is a microcosm of the church itself in America. Some applaud the message of warning and repentance, and most of those are in the seats in the back and out amongst the gathered. Meanwhile, the leaders, the pastors and organizers – are busy squawking among themselves, disdaining the message, and nary even paying attention to the dire warning and call that IS THEIR CHARGE TO GIVE TO THEIR FLOCKS.

But they are not heeding, nor even listening. They are mostly about their own agendas, ministries and efforts – few of which are even related to Matthew 28:19-20, or equipping the Saints to actually go out and do that Commission.

Lord help those of us with ears to hear, and through HIS Spirit – MOVE in action to DO what needs to be done among a wayward people in an age of evil.

Christian Prayers And Protests Will Get You Arrested In NYC

Zero Tolerance for Christians in New York compared to Occupy Protests that dragged on for weeks.   Christians arrested on site for praying against the ban on churches meeting in public places.

In a sickening proof that Amerika is become a hostile land for Christians who are no longer welcome or permitted their free exercise.  Last Thursday New York City arrested 43 pastors and laypersons who dared to defy the Established Secular Order and PRAYED in protest about the city’s new ban on Christian use of public places for worship services that goes into effect February 12.

Police were ordered to arrest them all immediately for criminal trespass.  Apparently New York has a Zero Tolerance policy if you kneel and pray in public and are a Christian, but if you are a secular anarchist who likes to shut down businesses and bridges, do drugs, rape and rob people – then you and your Occupy Wall Street pals will go unmolested by the Police for weeks and weeks, while the media rages in protest on their behalf if any of those scum are arrested for their disruptive and violent behavior.

 

 

 

 

 

And If you are Muslim you will get to pray in the streets facing Mecca while blocking traffic to call attention to your protests of America:

 

 

 

 

 

 

But if you are Christian, and are protesting for your Constitutional Right of free exercise from being prohibited by law in public places such as schools, streets and public buildings – if you join hands, kneel and pray – why then – you will be arrested with brute force in moments of your defiance to take a knee and pray.

Christians haves deceived themselves into thinking that injustice and persecution of Christians is something that happens only in far away backward countries.

They would be wrong.  Institutionalized persecution – of which this author has personally witnessed and experienced in a land hostile to Christians, is already having a foundation poured beneath our feet and knees.

It makes no difference who you are if you are Christian, police arrested New York City Councilman and pastor Fernando Cabrera, pastor Bill Devlin, and five others on charges of “criminal trespassing.” Their alleged trespass was kneeling and singing two hymns outside the doors of the New York City Law Department.

 

THAT earns you jail time.  But if you are protesting rich people and businesses and support Communism – then you can set up tents and shut down bridges and take over public spaces without so much as a shout against you by police.

But take a knee and pray in front of a public building in New York – you will get to enjoy plastic hand restraints and a ride in a paddy wagon to the local lock up.

Welcome to Amerika 2012 – your hope and change has arrived.

Persecution: Feds Ban Use of “God” at Veterans Cemetary

In the ongoing and continuing war on God and Jesus Christ in this country, there is news this weekend that the Feds have banned volunteers at the Houston National Cemetery from saying “God Bless You” at funerals and were ordered to remove the words ‘God Bless” from condolence cards.  This federal government’s policy is that any “religious” (meaning Christian or biblical – let’s get this right) texts or words must be submitted FOR APPROVAL in advance to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Obviously the First Amendment means nothing anymore to this government, and like the Soviet Union, all speech and religious references must first be approved by a bureaucrat, or such speech and religious exercise is forbidden.

Our Founders went to war and drew blood for far less than this.

Precursor to Sharia Law? Obama Changes “Freedom of Religion” to “Freedom of Worship”

Paul Cooper on NewsReal Blog puts the pieces together and asks a question few of us really want to answer.

Why is Obama now using the term “Freedom of Worship” as opposed to “Freedom of Religion” as stated in our Founding documents?

As Cooper points out – when the Obama regime uses new terms, policy soon follows.

My own speculation is that in Obama’s mind – all paths lead to Allah.

Why is Obama Changing “Freedom of Religion” to “Freedom of Worship”?

Words matter.  Words often hold great meaning.  That is especially true when it comes to the words of our founding documents like the Bill of Rights in our Constitution.  Those words are especially cherished.  Yet in the past year it appears the Obama administration has been changing  one key word in that sacred scroll.

Last month the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s 2010 report revealed grave concern about both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejecting the term “freedom of religion” for the term “freedom of worship” in public pronouncements.  Why the change when the First Amendment talks specifically about our freedom of religion and not simply worship?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… – US Constitution

Last November Obama used the term “freedom of worship” at the memorial service for the victims of the Ft. Hood shooting.  A few days later he did it again in speeches in both Japan and China.  In DecemberHillary Clinton also used that terminology three times in a speech at Georgetown University and never once used the phrase “freedom of religion”.  In January of this year Clinton used the “freedom of worship” term four times while addressing senators.

This change in phraseology could well be viewed by human rights defenders and officials in other countries as having concrete policy implications.” – U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s 2010 report

The response by many religious freedom advocates is fear of what this all means.  Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom and member of the Religious Freedom commission believes freedom of worship is limited to private beliefs and prayer but not public activity.

It excludes the right to raise your children in your faith; the right to have religious literature; the right to meet with co-religionists; the right to raise funds; the right to appoint or elect your religious leaders, and to carry out charitable activities, to evangelize, [and] to have religious education or seminary training. – Nina Shea

Some Christian based publications are also worried.

That’s not an inconsequential change: Freedom of worship means the ability to have church services, which is crucial, but leaves out protection for Christian schools, publications, and Christian compassionate ministries…’Freedom of religion’ means that ministries designed to help prisoners change their lives, or to help the poor enter the workforce, can teach what the Bible teaches. Under ‘freedom of worship,’ these ministries could become illegal, as they are in many parts of the world.  This is a development to watch warily. – World Magazine

Some in the State Department argue the words “religion” and “worship” can be used interchangeably and there is nothing to worry about.  Others aren’t so sure and see this change in terminology as a major shift by the Obama administration.

Those of us in the business of sniffing out rats know that this is a rhetorical shift to watch. – Tom Farr, Professor of Religion and World Affairs at Georgetown University and the former head of the State Department’s International Religious Freedom Office

This President clearly sees religion as a key part of foreign affairs when the Muslim world is involved especially.  He is ultra-careful to not want to offend followers of Islam.  We already know that the administration has rejected the term “radical Islam” or any similar language and refuses to admit religion plays a major roll in terrorism.

This new terminology of “freedom of worship” might be given as a sign to Muslim nations and places with Christian persecution like China that they are not going to crack down on religious persecution for minority religions in those countries.  That could explain why Obama first used the term after a radical Muslim killed Americans at Ft. Hood.  And it could also explain why he used the term in speeches in China and Japan.

I’m very fearful that by building bridges, we’re actually stepping away from this fundamental principle of religious freedom. … It is so critical for Western, especially American, leaders to articulate strong defense forreligious freedom and explain what that means and how it undergirds our entire civilization. – Nina Shea

Shea has it right.  I’m not sure who all the Obama administration is trying to build bridges with by a shift in terminology, but it it a dangerous shift.  When Obama’s folk shift terminology that always means there has been a shift in policy.  They (with the exception of  Vice President Biden) choose their words very carefully.  The administration needs to publicly proclaim what this new policy means for Americans and for religious freedom around the world.

Let’s face It – This Is A Socialist Coup, A War To Kill The Republic

By INVAR

Folks, let’s be honest about what is going on right now.

America is in the midst of a coup. A Socialist Coup. 

We just went from a Republic, to a Fascist Oligarchy of Socialism this afternoon, and the coup marches on even more determined.

Barrack The Hussein Obama, The Mainstream Media, this fascist Bailout Bill, Pelosi’s House, Reid’s Senate, Global Warming, No Drilling and this energy mess, are all ‘fronts’ and battles in a civil war now being waged against a nation and people that have no clue that they are at war and under attack.

It’s the same apathy, indifference and ignorance of refusing to understand that radical Islam was at war with us for decades – that led to our stunned bewilderment on 9-11.

The radical and Marxist Left are at war with the American Republic, American Conservatives, Biblical Christians and Jews. They have been at war with this Republic and Constitution for decades. They have infiltrated and wounded it via stealth, and pushed ignorance upon a people’s children about our true history, heritage and culture. And they believe they are on the verge of total victory. All the chips are on the table. These enemies of the Republic are playing for keeps.

You and I, and liberty are the targets.

Today is September 10, 2001 for the Republic – and while the pillars of liberty and Constitution still stand today – they will be gone tomorrow. An insidious plot and attack with the aim of destroying them is now in it’s final stages of execution. 

What they want, is a Marxist State of Oligarchs, running the people, controlling our liberty, our lives. Even now, songs of worship and praise to Obama, paramilitary youths chanting Obama slogans and radical Leftists promising vengeance on their ideological enemies when they achieve power, are becoming commonplace and found on YouTube.

Thug tactics, threatening, using law enforcement to silence and intimidate political speech that the Obama campaign does not like and outright lies – deliberate propaganda being forcefed by a mainstream press that are full of KGB- er, Democrat agents, even to the point of having an Obama Campaign supporter and author of a book praising Obama “moderating” a vice presidential debate.

It’s a Socialist/Marxist revolution.

Yes, Virginia, it really can happen here – because it already is underway. The fact a Saul Alinsky Marxist, whose freinds are America-hating terrorists and anti-American Black-Power preaching racists is on the verge of the Presidency should wake you up to this reality.

We’ve just watched a political version of Mohammed Atta waltz through the ticket gate of the Republic with the aid and help of media agents that share his hatred of the “Flyover country infidels”, and we shrug our shoulders in disbelief and apathy and wonder aloud what happened to the America we once knew?

We’ve seen the warning signs, the slow boil and incremental insertion of the American Republic into the cauldron of Socialism.

From the admiration in the 1930’s of Mussolini’s Fascism in Italy by the American press and the Roosevelt Administration; to the New Deal and onward to LBJ’s Great Society, America has grown comfortable with a nanny state government that has grown to it’s current tyrannical size. The war on poverty alone has thrown TRILLIONS of dollars at poor and minorities to ever-increasing ravenous appetites of both the welfare class and the government pimps that it has empowered. Entitlements are outpacing our national GDP – and the debt hung on our necks and those of our children are chains that weigh in the multiple tens of trillions of dollars.

With this has been a steady erosion of true liberty all in the name of ‘change’, ‘the poor’, ‘the children’, ‘safety’, ‘security’.

America has become comfortable with enslaving Socialism.

Now the ground has been softened enough, the battlefield prepped, the populace conditioned by decades of Leftist bombardment to accept the next stage of the transformation of America from a Republic to a Fascist Socialist Democracy.

The coup is underway – right now. Under your very nose. Perhaps with your consent. Perhaps with your condemnation. Perhaps with your indifference. Regardless, the vast majority are comfortable and even willing, to surrender the liberty that your neighbors do not trust you with to the almighty power of the government.

Investment banks are nationalized. The mortgage industry was just nationalized. The auto industry was partially nationalized. Next to be nationalized is the oil and energy industry, the healthcare industry – and eventually YOUR industry.

Government will run and regulate all business and industry- probably like they did Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Government now owns your mortgage, and like it does with all government housing – can and will tell you what you may or may not do in your home and property. Obama said today that he will APPOINT and empower Judges to make decisions that will forestall bankruptcy, and even allow the judge to change the terms of the mortgage – the interest rates and even the principle.

A dependent people will bow willingly to every demand of the state and a dictator for the promise of bread. Your neighbors will turn you in for a scrap of food. Your neighbors will lie about you for an extra portion of whatever the government will hand out.

And enemies of this newfound Fascism – will be eradicated ala the Waco Treatment.

Those of Faith in the scriptures, who will not break the First Commandment and replace the worship of God for the state and a man the rest of the populace worships as a god, will be attacked by Christian Socialists and Secularists first – and then the state will ultimately destroy them. Given what Obama has written in his two autobiographies – the American version of Mein Kampf, his disdain and hatred with his compatriot Christian-hating supporters like Bill Maher and the rest of the Leftist media, persecution, ostracization and elimination is all but a certainty.

My fellow countrymen – whether you want to believe it or not, whether you accept it or not – the fact is this: we are at war with Socialists who have staged a coup with our ignorant consent.

The only question remains – will we go quietly into the night as they expect us to?

Steel yourselves. Prepare yourselves to endure.

For misery unknown to these shores, and tyranny unlike any we have experienced is about to hit the towers of liberty and freedom. The socialists have hijacked the aircrafts of commerce, media and the Courts – and the Marxists that are flying these behemoth missiles, are aiming them at their targets.

In the wreckage to follow – the people will cry for a savior.

And Obama is already in the bullpen – with anthems and slogans and worship songs already written.

May God rest the soul of this former Republic that we are surrendering.

Top Seven Christian Bashings of 2007

As I have been documenting here, a new zeitgeist of Christian and Jewish hatred is spreading rapidly in the country. The almost daily equating of Christian and Jewish fundamentalism with Islamic terrorism is reaching fever pitch, and overt acts of violence and incitement against Chrsitians is being played out on our streets, our politics and our entertainment.

Being anti-Christian is a new status symbol among the intelligensia and the blogoshere and it is picking up steam in the anti-war movement and even among liberal Christian groups who openly state that biblical fundamentalists are more dangerous than Al Qaeda.

This article lists what they see are the 7 most egregious acts of Christian bashing in 2007.

Top Seven Acts of Christian Bashing in America of 2007

By Christian Newswire Thursday, January 10, 2008

“From murder and intimidation, to the crass and the blasphemous, 2007 was a horrendous year of Christian bashing,” said Dr. Gary L. Cass, Chairman and CEO of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. “Anti- Christian sentiments are being fomented in the culture and are becoming more deadly and cynical,” said Cass.

“Impressionable young people are being swept up in anti-Christian hysteria, aided and abetted by a greedy, a-moral entertainment industry. Mocking Christians, blaspheming their faith and ridiculing their values has become the easy way for ‘entertainers’ to shock their way to the top.”

“The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) calls on anti-Christian politicians, Hollywood and New York media elites to stop the Christian bashing and take responsibility for the culture of hate towards Christians they have helped to create. The CADC will work aggressively to stop this dangerous and irresponsible Christian bashing in 2008.”

1.) Colorado Church Murders–“You Christians brought this on yourselves I’m coming for EVERYONE soon and I WILL be armed to the @#%$ teeth and I WILL shoot to kill. … God, I can’t wait till I can kill you people. Feel no remorse, no sense of shame, I don’t care if I live or die. …” Posted by a troubled young man, Matthew Murray, ten hours after killing two at the Arvada missionary base and two hours before killing two at a Colorado Springs church. Churches used to be considered sanctuaries, but now they are targets for the hateful and the deranged. The CADC calls on every church to be prepared to use deadly force, if necessary, to protect their congregations.

2.) Federal Hate Crimes Bill–The 2007 Federal Hate Crimes Bill which threatens religious liberties and lays the groundwork for “thought crime,” which has no place in American law and violates the concept of equal protection under the law. As has occurred in other nations, these laws pave the way for Christians to be silenced and even arrested because they believe that homosexual acts are sinful. It is totalitarian regimes which punish thoughts, not free societies. Thomas Jefferson declares that “the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions.”

3.) Violence on San Francisco Church–In September, Christians in San Francisco spoke out against a blasphemous anti-Christian advertisement for the Folsom Street Fair, a perverted “fair” for the sadomasochistic, leather fetish community. The ad mimics the classic Christian painting of Christ at the Last Supper. In the ad, Christ and the 12 Disciples are portrayed as sexual deviants provocatively posed before a table of sex toys.

4.) Attack on Jerry Falwell–CNN reached a new low when Anderson Cooper invited Christopher Hitchens, editor of Vanity Fair Magazine, on his show the day of Jerry Falwell’s death to make critical remarks about Falwell. Hitchens made the most reprehensible and offensive remarks one can imagine against a Christian minister, Jerry Falwell, even on the day of his death. Christopher Hitchens called Falwell “a little toad … a horrible little person…an evil old man…a conscious charlatan and bully and fraud…an actual danger to democracy, to culture, to civilization.”

5.) CNN’s “God’s Warriors” and “Friends of God”–Two biased, anti-Christian documentaries were produced and aired. One by Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, “Friends of God” on HBO and the other by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, “God’s Warriors.” At least they tried to act as if they wanted to be fair. Of course, they failed. Evangelicals are almost 100 million strong and very diverse but are reduced to clichéd caricatures or are portrayed as the moral equivalents of Islamic terrorists.

6.) John Edwards’s Campaign Bloggers who called Christian supporters of President Bush his “wing nut Christofascist base.” One asked, ‘What if Mary had taken Plan B after the Lord filled her with his hot, white, sticky Holy Spirit,’ to which she replied, ‘You’d have to justify your misogyny with another ancient mythology.’ They posed the thoughtful question of religious conservatives, “What don’t you lousy %#*@! +# understand about keeping your noses out of our britches, our beds and our families?”

7.) Golden Compass, the Movie–Phillip Pullman’s atheistic answer to C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series because destroying the church and killing God in the mind of every child is the best revenge. Why be damned alone when you can take a few million souls with you and get rich on the proceeds.
