Crowds

January 23, 2017 Leave a comment

There have been many instances of fake news in mainstream media of late.  Most of the time words are used to misrepresent reality, but pictures may also be used.

Recently the New York Times published an article comparing the sizes of the crowds attending Obama’s and Trump’s inaugurations.  The message of the Times article is that very few people supported Trump by attending the inauguration, and by inference Trump is an illegitimate president.

Protests?

November 27, 2016 Leave a comment

We have all heard and seen the mayhem going on in our large cities protesting Trump’s victory.  The mainstream media and Obama would have us believe that these are legitimate, spontaneous protests.  Not so.

Here are some links proving that the riots are the product of a well-funded, orchestrated campaign of intimidation and destruction against America.  Rioters are not only offered good pay ($15 per hour+), but some of the ads actually include provisions for benefits such as dental insurance!  Please do not apply…

Conservative? Liberal?

November 26, 2016 Leave a comment

As we mingled and talked with friends and family this Thanksgiving, the conversation frequently turned to the recent election.  “What do you think…” was a common question.  During one of these conversations, I was asked a simple question, “What’s the difference between a liberal and a conservative?”  What an opportunity for a series of jokes!  Here is one:

An elderly man went to a store and bought $15.23 in groceries.  He handed the young cashier a $20 bill, expecting $4.77 in return.  He was surprised when she handed him a single dollar bill.  Bewildered, the gentleman complained, “This is the wrong amount!”  The cashier – a liberal – replied, “No sir, this is the right amount.  You must be using the old math.  We’re using the new math now.”

Jokes may be good for a laugh but will not answer the question. Read more…

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 3, The Fire

May 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Counter-CutIn the last essay we saw that today’s events are driven in large part by a cosmic spiritual war between God and Satan. If there is indeed such a spiritual war of cosmic proportions raging in our midst, one would expect to see some evidence of that conflict. More precisely, since God’s current offensive is pressed through The Church, evidence of this war should be most evident within The Church itself or through interactions between The Church and the world.

A Consuming Fire

One must understand the nature of something to find evidence about it.
God wages war as a consuming fire:

God is a consuming fire (Deu 4:24, 9:3, Isa 33:10-14, Heb 12:29)

Every war, but especially God’s spiritual war, rages like a forest fire. A forest fire burns furiously until extinguished or all the fuel is spent. Wars burn furiously and uncontrollably until all the fuel is spent. Read more…

Be Prepared!

Be prepared!

The Marines are prepared.  The Boy Scouts are prepared.  Many large corporations are prepared.  My last job was to coordinate emergency preparedness and business continuity efforts and planning at a global organization.  We, too, need to be prepared as individuals and as families.  What for?

A great calamity is about to fall on this nation. I don’t pretend to know exactly when or what because no one can foretell the future.  But I can tell you with certainty that a great calamity will befall this nation soon. I can tell you with certainty that 9-11, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and the Ft. Hood shootings will pale in comparison to what we are about to experience.

I am not fear mongering.  I say this with such confidence because all the signs are pointing in the same direction:

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 4, Worldly Perspective

April 10, 2014 Leave a comment

This is the eleventh in a series of essays examining the Middle East situationCounter-Cut from a Biblical perspective.

In the previous posts we examined the importance of accurately understanding ancient history. We have seen the dual nature of that conflict: Spiritual as well as worldly. In the last two essays we examined the spiritual conflict in depth.

In this essay we will examine the conflict from the world’s perspective. From the worldly perspective, the Middle East conflict has two fundamental root causes:

o   Squatters’ rights
o   Family feuds.

Let us examine each briefly. Read more…

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 1, Background

This is the ninth in a series of essays examining the Middle East situation from a Biblical perspective.Counter-Cut

Every fall people flock to corn mazes and hay mazes that spring up throughout the countryside.  Famers create these mazes by cutting labyrinthine paths in corn that stands taller than a man, or by constructing labyrinthine walls of hay bales higher than a man.

Upon entering the maze no one can see where they have been, where they are, or where they’re going.  Navigating one’s way out of such mazes is challenging and time-consuming.  While in these mazes, do we know where we are?  Kind of, but not really.

However, if we had an accurate map of the maze and an accurate record of where we’ve been, we could know exactlywhere we are and where we’re going.  We could even plan and reliably follow a route to get out of the maze.

It is the same with history.  If we want to know what the future might hold – though we cannot see the future clearly – it is necessary to know where we started, where we’ve been, and where we are.  We can then make some reasonable projections of the future based on that knowledge.  However, the more accurately and the farther out into the future we wish to make our projections, the farther back in time we must look to maintain reasonable accuracy of prediction.
