Looking Ahead – Expectations for 2015 and the Next 12 Months

29 August 2014 AD

On or about September 28, 2015, we’ll be marking the next seven-year economic cycle and it will be devastating to property values, along with a host of other matters. Jews call this the Shmita cycle, “the year of release“, when global economics are restructured. (Shmita is also spelled Shmitta, Smita, Shemita)

The last Shmita cycle was September 15, 2008, marked by a major drop of the stock markets. Seven years before, on September 11, 2001, Muslim terrorists, principally from Saudi Arabia, hijacked airliners to crash them into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and a fourth, apparently intended for our nation’s capital, perished on a Pennsylvania field. Oh, and there was a major stock market drop.

To me, the fact none of the four “blood moons” in this current series have been visible in Israel, but highly so all across the USA. Israelis may see the tail end of the next, the fourth, that happens September 28, 2015 is very interesting.

One rabbi says the Shmita cycle only applies to Israel. Well, there are Christians who say the church replaced Israel. I disagree with both. The Word of God is for all mankind. Clearly, Israel is the olive tree and, according to the Bible, we Christians are grafted into that tree (Romans 11:17). History also clearly indicates all mankind experiences the Shmita cycle.

Torah has several meanings, but it boils down to “instruction“. The Bible is the “instruction manual” God gave us by which we should live while on the earth.

Find instructions for observing Shmita in Exodus 23:1-11, specifically verses 10 and 11 CJB:

10 “For six years, you are to sow your land with seed and gather in its harvest. 11 But the seventh year, you are to let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor among your people can eat; and what they leave, the wild animals in the countryside can eat. Do the same with your vineyard and olive grove.”

Bible students will remember the story of Joseph in Egypt, the seven years of plenty followed by seven years of scarcity.

shmita sourcebook coverOne on-line resource you may appreciate is the “SHMITA SOURCEBOOK” published one year ago. http://www.hazon.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Shmita_Sourcebook_First_Edition_Oct2013.pdf

The fast of Tisha b’Av falls on the Hebrew calendar date of 9 Av, July 25-26, 2015. 9 Av historically marks disastrous events befalling Jews worldwide. Because the church, the body of Christians, is grafted into the olive tree of Israel, we are not immune. Muslims who wish us harm refer to Israel as the “little Satan” and to the USA as the “great Satan”. I think it interesting how so many of my fellow Christians don’t see the connection between Christianity and Israel, but our enemies see it very plainly. Muslims refer to Jews and Christians as “People of the Book” (POB), the Book being our Bible.

Writing this isn’t intended to frighten anyone, but to prepare us all for drastic changes coming upon us over the next 12 months.

Middle East Peace: Our Diplomacy and Military Fail, But This Actually Works

24 August 2014 AD

M Zuhdi JasserYou ask: “Where are all the Muslims who would speak out against Hamas, ISIS/ISIL, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Muslim terrorist organizations?”. Read what happened to M. Zuhdi Jasser of Arizona when he “criticized the radicals of Hamas on national television for their supremacist Islamist doctrine hatched from the Muslim Brotherhood that daily and viciously oppresses the people of Gaza.”

Are there Muslims who oppose radical jihadists who threaten to destroy America and Israel? Yes, but the purveyors of the religion of Jihadi Islam use their considerable power over Muslims to suppress such speech on the threat of death.

Read what happened to this Muslim man: http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/op-ed/2014/08/23/muslim-intimidation-eid-sermon/14445117/

It is my prayer that God will reveal Himself to Muslims in dreams and visions. Why would I pray for those who wish to kill me? Rabbi Jesus Christ gave me the answer from his sermon on the mount, as recorded in Matthew 5:43-45

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Muhammad started his religion over 600 years after Jesus’ disciples first carried the good news around the known world. Over the last 1400 years Christian missionaries gained little ground winning Muslim souls to the Kingdom of God. In recent years, however, Muslims have been flocking to churches and to America to learn about this Jesus who appears to them in dreams and visions.

Nizar ShaheenRead about this phenomena from CBN News: “Visions of Jesus Stir Muslim Hearts” http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/onlinediscipleship/understandingislam/visions.aspx

Our Muslim enemies hate us with blazing passion. Let’s learn to love them with at least equal passion and to pray for Muslims near and far to experience those personal encounters with our Messiah.

North Texas Drought – Facts, Manmade Remedies and Supernatural Alternatives

23 August 2014 AD

Reference: Rockwall County Herald Banner article “Ray Hubbard At Lowest Point In Last 12 Months”

receding shoreline at 66 ramp

Just to be perfectly clear on the issue of water in the Ray Hubbard Reservoir: it’s not Rockwall water. That entire pond is the lawful property of the City of Dallas. Yes, it’s on Rockwall County dirt, but it is not “our” water. “Our” water is the product of the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) and “our” water comes from “our” lakes.

At present, here are our water sources in order of importance:

  1. 30% – Lake Lavon
  2. 28% – Lake Texoma
  3. 15% – Jim Chapman Lake
  4. 8% – Lake Tawakoni

east fork raw water projectYou may turn up your nose at recycled waste water, but it’s not just restricted to places like Wichita Falls – we’re doing it, too, just very differently. Our NTMWD has in place an enormous wetlands project down in Kaufman County. The East Fork of the Trinity River runs through Lake Lavon and Ray Hubbard Reservoir, down through Kaufman County. It’s under that bridge you cross driving along highway 80 between Forney and Dallas. The district is using natural means to clarify and cleanse the water. Is it truly river water? Yes. But more. Do sewers run into this water? Yes. Think about this when you next brush your teeth. But, don’t panic: our water is totally safe to drink.

Only member cities purchase NTMWD water and these member cities include Allen, Farmersville, Forney, Frisco, Garland, McKinney, Mesquite, Plano, Princeton, Richardson, Rockwall, Royse City and Wylie.

Member cities, in turn, sell water to client cities. Rockwall sells water to Heath.

A board of directors oversees our water district and our two representatives on the board are banker Larry Parks and former County Judge and practicing attorney Bill Lofland.

Yelling and screaming at our representatives will not produce more water, but there is something we can all do to protect this life-giving resource: we can creatively conserve water.

My neighbor across the street, an expert in landscapes, uses crushed granite and native Texas plants that are naturally drought resistant to conserve water. Over in my yard, I have “trained” my grass to go get its own water down deep in the soil. I never irrigate, but my grass is as green as neighboring lawn that are irrigated.

The ultimate option for water is God. I refer you to the book of 2 Chronicles, chapter 7, where God imparts instructions directly to King Solomon after consecration of the temple in Jerusalem.

solomon_sacrifice2 Chronicles 7:12-14 Amplified

“And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said to him: I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I shut up heaven so no rain falls [we call this drought], or if I command locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people [AIDS, ebola?], If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

In context, the above was spoken about the people of Israel. This text also embodies a principle, a cause-and-effect relationship between God and man, therefore it applies to our situation.

Should we wait a while before repenting to see if things just naturally turn around for us?

Contemporary Christianity – Preaching AROUND the issues of today

22 August 2014 AD

Martin Luther posting his 95 theses to the Wittenberg door
Martin Luther posting his 95 theses to the Wittenberg door

“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages there the loyalty of the soldier is proved. And to be steady on all the battlefields besides is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.” – Church Reformer Martin Luther

Pollster George Barna’s latest poll discovers a disturbing fact about 90% of U.S. pastors.

“New research shows that while 90 percent of pastors believe the Bible has much to say about today’s pressing political and societal issues, fewer than 10 percent are talking about those issues from the pulpit.”

Clearly, pastors are professing “with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking”.

Read more about Barna’s findings in this Charisma Magazine article titled “Most Pastors May Be Committing This Sin, Study Suggests” http://www.charismanews.com/us/45090-most-pastors-may-be-committing-this-sin-study-suggests

Pastors right here in little ole Rockwall fear political controversy, apparently, than they do the wrath of God. One pastor who leads a very large congregation spoke ONCE on the evils of homosexuality. A barrage of angry emails from a select few put an end to his preaching to the issues of the day. Most pastors think preaching about the issues of the day are “political”, while some fear retribution from the IRS.

What about your pastor or rabbi?

German Pastor Martin Niemöller
German Pastor Martin Niemöller

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Call it coincidence these two giants of the faith shared the name Martin. BehindTheName.com reveals the origin and meaning of the name ‘Martin’.

From the Roman name Martinus, which was derived from Martis, the genitive case of the name of the Roman god MARS. Saint Martin of Tours was a 4th-century bishop who is the patron saint of France. According to legend, he came across a cold beggar in the middle of winter so he ripped his cloak in two and gave half of it to the beggar. He was a favourite saint during the Middle Ages, and his name has become common throughout the Christian world.”

Martin is a name for a warrior. Encourage your pastor to become a warrior for the souls of mankind, not a people-pleasing, pew-packing purveyor of poppycock.

Texas DPS – Agency Gone Rogue? Move Over, Eric Holder

22 August 2014 AD

Jerry Berggren challenges Texas Department of Public Safety on fingerprinting all Texas drivers

Every Citizen A Suspect?
Every Citizen A Suspect?

His challenge: HAS THE TEXAS DPS GONE 9 FINGERS TOO FAR? CANDIDATES’ RESPONSE

“I have a perspective on politics that some people may interpret as arrogance. You see, I believe that our elected office holders owe me an answer on policy questions. They owe me this answer personally. The reason they owe me this answer is that they hold their position at my and my fellow citizens’ pleasure. I do not work and pay taxes for their benefit, I work and pay taxes for mine, and elected office holders are stewards of my financial contribution to government. Because of this attitude, I will be (mostly) fair in my accusations and applause for those self same office holders.

DPS was purposely deceptive?
DPS was purposely deceptive?

“So it was, as I read the news in my newsfeed on the morning of August 15th, I came across an article in the Dallas Morning News, Watchdog: Lawmakers say they didn’t give DPS OK to fingerprint. [The original article was published on August 2nd, but I was just catching up from having been on vacation.] Like the lawmakers cited in Dave Lieber’s article, I was “furious.” Well, maybe not furious, more like disgusted.

“There is a reason I am concerned with this practice: I have one son who will be getting his first license and another who will be getting his first license as an adult, both during the first week of September….”

"...you can't trust government"
“…you can’t trust government”

“Several state lawmakers tell The Watchdog they’re furious with the Texas Department of Public Safety for its new program that fingerprints all driver’s license applicants.

“Under the program, the state will collect complete fingerprints of every Texas driver with a license within a dozen years. Previously, the state collected only a thumbprint.

“The lawmakers say they didn’t know the program was launched earlier this year until reported by The Watchdog, and they never gave approval through state law.

“One says he believes DPS was purposely deceptive to avoid public scrutiny and a privacy debate. He says that alone shows why governments can’t be trusted to protect our privacy….”

Obama Administration Slow to Defend Jews and Christians – God Is Our True Source of Peace

dr sarah ahmedDr. Sarah Ahmed reports, “What’s happening now to the Christians…is genocide…what’s happening is what happened 200 years ago to the Jews.”

She further reports the horror, how ISIS is “shooting the kids…and people. They are lying them on the ground” then ISIS runs a tractor over them.

ISIS, aka al Qaeda, aka Muslim Brotherhood, is covering Iraq in darkness. Left unchecked, all Muslim dominated lands from the West Coast of Africa to the Far East will come under a dreadful new caliphate.

Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived together for nearly 2,000 years in the Middle East, but an evil force that controls these murderous thugs has only one goal: to eradicate all People of the Book (POB) – Christians and Jews.

Hear more from this CBN video: http://ow.ly/AAxS2

rebel armsPresident Barack Obama “leading from behind” deposed Moammar Gaddafi in Lybia on false pretense of “protecting Libyan people”. For the record, Gaddafi wasn’t attacking peaceful protesters. They were attacking him.

Obama’s not-so-behind-the-scenes nation-building effort in Syria was to supply arms and ammunition to Syrian rebels. Backfire. Most of those arms and ammo went to the people now known as ISIS.

There is no possibility a true statesman will come forward so long as Obama and Kerry have the tiller of the ship of state. But, we can call on the One who holds the hearts of kings in the palm of His hand – The Living God, El Shaddai Adonai.

No political party can help stop the advance of this evil caliphate, but God can turn everything around and do so suddenly.

I invite you to join me in praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Let’s implore The Lord of Lords to pour out His spirit over the people of the Middle East, that He would reveal Himself in dreams and visions.

‘Green Energy’ – Not for the Birds

19 August 2014 AD

Warning! Warning! Warning!

Global warming alarmists have been beating their end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it drums for several years now. Even as real science disproves their theory of anthropogenic atmospheric anomalies, instead of changing their minds, they change the name of their theory from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change’.

Scientific Fact #1: Man Little – Sun Big

Statisticians say the average man has a mass of 70 kg, approximately 154.3 lbs. According to the World Population Clock, today there are approximately 7,254,814,816 living persons on terra firma. Therefore:

There are 7,254,814,816 X 154.3 = 1.119417926 X 1012 lbs. of people

This translates to approximately 5.078370371 X 1011 kg

The Earth’s mass is 5.9736 x 1024 kg.

Dividing the mass of all people by the mass of the earth calculates thus:

5.078370371 X 1011/ 5.9736 x 1024 = 8.50 X 10-14%

Conclusion: the mass of people is inconsequential to the mass of the entire earth.

How does the mass of the earth compare to our sun?

Onee sun is equivalent to 1,300,000 earths. I leave calculation of the kilograms to the reader.

The point of these mathematical gymnastics is to demonstrate the utter insignificance of mankind, mass wise, to the sun. I hasten to point our collective mass is utterly insignificant to the mass of the earth.

Conclusion: the sun determines our weather, not coal-fired power plants.

Renewable? Have You Asked the Birds About This?

Streamers

‘Streamers’ is the name given to feathered flambeau that fall from the sky immediately upon entering airspace above an enormous solar reflector array near Primm, Nevada.

Solar Reflector Array Near Primm, Nevada
Solar Reflector Array Near Primm, Nevada

According to Yahoo! News, “over 300,000 mirrors .. focus sunlight on boilers’ tubes atop 450 foot towers heating water into steam which in turn drives turbines to create electricity.

Yes, this marvelous “renewable energy” plant heats water into steam and it does something else: it makes fricassée of birds who fly over it.

Typical 'Streamers' Birds fried by renewable energy
Typical ‘Streamers’
Birds fried by ‘renewable energy’

Read “Emerging solar plants scorch birds in mid-air” from Yahoo! News

One fricassée feathered friend becomes sacrifice for the liberals’ sun god every two minutes.

But Wait! There’s More

As reported in the Smithsonian Magazine online, “somewhere between 140,000 and 328,000 birds die each year from collisions with wind turbines.

Killing Wildlife: It’s Not Nice to Fool with Mother Nature

In case you missed a lesson in high school or college, birds eat insects. Need I say more? No? Good.

Lying under our feet are abundant and inexpensive fuel stocks in the forms of natural gas, oil and coal. We are awash in the stuff.

Now for the coup de grâce: Energy Density and portability.

Oil, gas and coal have energy density. They work equally well in darkness or sunlight, on windy days and still. We have discovered we can’t seem to mount a windmill atop our cars. Solar power? Well, there are experimental solar-powered cars raced annually by college students, but they aren’t particularly useful to a family of four. Or, even a single woman. Or man.

Conclusion

Real science reveals all the phony science that led us down this worthless ‘renewable’ path.

This sitting president has been playing in the sandlot of ‘crony capitalism’ whereby he funds worthless ‘renewable energy’ companies like Solyndra whose owners in turn contribute tens of millions of our tax dollars to Democrat political campaigns. If your looking for a word to describe his activities, I suggest CORRUPTION.
