Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes.

Consider Revelation 9:16-17 “I heard the size of their army, which was 200 million mounted troops. And in my vision, I saw the horses and the riders sitting on them. The riders wore armor that was fiery red and dark blue and yellow. The horses had heads like lions, and fire and smoke and burning sulfur billowed from their mouths.

At the time of this writing, China has available 749,610,775 men and women that can be drafted in a moment’s notice. Each year 19,538,534 Chinese citizens reach military age. At present, there are 2,333,000 frontline military personnel with another 2,300,000 active reserves. A major limiting factor against Chinese military dominance is an inadequate oil supply to fuel the factories, tanks, transports, ships, and planes the country would need to conquer the Middle East.

Would not a direct route to the Strait of Hormuz be a practical way to assure adequate oil for Western China? So it is the Chinese government is “investing” in Pakistan and Afghanistan to build rail lines, hydro-electric power supplies and overland roads. Hydro-electric energy would power the proposed railroad. This overland route will also minimize the risks posed by imported oil having to pass through two hazardous straits, the Strait of Hormuz and the Strait of Malacca. Approximately half of the entire world’s oil production moves through oil transit chokepoints, most of it going to the east coast of China.

Do you know we built a network of pipelines between Texas and New York during WW2 to prevent losses from German submarines? Those two huge pipelines were called, “The Big Inch Pipelines”.

On another front, is the Yiwu-Madrid rail line running from the city of Yiwu south of Shanghai all the way to Madrid via Moscow. This route became active December 9, 2014. This new railroad is a twenty-first century reconstruct of the old Silk Road. More cargo shipped at lower cost will realize the capital needed for the construction of other military facilities.

Revelation 16:12 “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”

Naturally, Obama will welcome Chinese peace-keeping in Afghanistan and Pakistan; China will absolutely own those two countries and our role in the Middle East will effectively be over.

Truly, we are inching toward Armageddon.

Eternal Political Affiliation – Seeking and Finding Solutions To Save America From Destruction

December 25, 2015 AD

Benjamin Rush (1746-1813): The Founding Father You Don’t Know

What was his significance? You don’t know Dr. Rush was known as “The Father of Public Schools Under the Constitution” and “The Father of American Medicine”? No, to teach about this Founding Father would go against modern academia which revises our history. When someone can change your history, they can control your destiny.

Throughout recorded history, we find politics and partisanship ingrained in our human nature. This was so 2,000 years ago, as recorded in the Bible.

Benjamin Rush was born on Christmas eve, 1745 near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. By age six his father was dead, leaving his mother to raise him and guide him. Learn more about this remarkable man by reading his biography via this link.

Dr. Benjamin Rush - U.S. Founding Father, signatory to the Declaration of Independence
Dr. Benjamin Rush – U.S. Founding Father, signatory to the Declaration of Independence

I have alternately been called an Aristocrat and a Democrat. I am neither. I am a Christocrat. – Dr. Benjamin Rush, physician, theologian, teacher, writer, chemistry professor, delegate to the Continental Congress, Surgeon-General to the Continental Army, Treasurer of the U.S. Mint

Christocrat? What party affiliation can this be? None whatsoever.

Dr. Rush was a disciple of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha’Mashiach who will one day rule the entire earth from New Jerusalem. Dr. Rush was a monarchist, not a partisan. His entire adult life was devoted to ushering in the Kingdom of God. In a monarchy there are no political parties.

While attending the annual Texas Home School Coalition dinner in Austin, an attorney friend and I debated briefly our true form of government. The discussion started when he stated “we are not a monarchy”. I disagreed.

God’s divine “fingerprints” are all over the founding of this nation. The outcome of our American Revolution can be explained only as miraculous. Devout leaders like Bejamin Rush and George Washington consulted the Holy Spirit on strategy and leadership.

 If it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee. Bless us with thy wisdom in our counsels, success in battle, and let our victories be tempered with humanity. Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy servant, for the sake of whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done.
“If it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee.

Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy servant, for the sake of whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done.” – George Washington

Throughout the revolutionary war with Great Britain, representatives of the colonies met daily in Constitution Hall to seek divine guidance and wisdom to lead the people.  As is human nature, as soon as the war was over, so were the prayers, as evidenced by the Constitutional Convention of 1788. Delegates of the confederation gathered to fix, to improve the confederate constitution in place at that time. After weeks of secret meetings there was no progress. It was the “least religious” founding father that God used to change the course of history. Read Franklin’s address to his fellow delegates:

Mr. President

The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other,”our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes and ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own want of political wisdom, some we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of Government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.

In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. ”Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that “except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments be Human Wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.

I therefore beg leave to move, that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of the City be requested to officiate in that service. – Benjamin Franklin, Constitutional Convention of 1787

Franklin’s appeal motivated delegates to return to prayer. So they did and instead of fixing the confederate constitution, the constitution of these United States came forth. 227 years later, it’s still in force, but in serious peril due to activist judges, lawmakers and presidents who don’t follow its tenets.

Jesus Christ gave us a model for prayer, as recorded in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4The first order of prayer is to acknowledge our Creator, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Second was to call for the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth. Kingdom = monarchy.

The natural government of the people, by the people and for the people is a monarchy whose King is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, ordained to rule the earth from the beginning of time, born of a virgin 2,000 years ago, according to scripture, nailed to a Roman cross, buried in a borrowed tomb, resurrected to prove he has power over death and human government.

Yes, I labor within our Rockwall County Republican Party, because it’s the closest thing to the Kingdom of God anywhere around here. But, I, like Benjamin Rush, want the Kingdom of God to rule our nation. I am neither a Democrat or Republican. I am a Christocrat, a monarchist who knows “God governs in the affairs of men“.

The majority of our founding fathers believed, they knew, God had a divine hand on the success of our revolution and our form of government. Historical revisionism conceals this truth from students today.

The invitation for you to change your ‘political affiliation’ to the Kingdom of God is now open and expires soon.

Texas Public-Carry Is the Law of The Land January 1st

December 23, 2015 AD

Open-Carry of handguns has only been "unusual" here in the Lone Star state until now.
Open-Carry of handguns has only been “unusual” here in the Lone Star state until now.

Open-Carry Law Becomes Effective January 1, 2016. With respect to gun-free areas of a county courthouse, particularly Rockwall County Courthouse, where the entire building is not “essential to the operation of the courts”, Attorney General Ken Paxton issued KP-0049, an official AG opinion, on December 21, 2015. You can read the entire opinion by clicking on the link in the preceding sentence.

Excerpt of KP-0049:

Thus, it is only the courtrooms, and those offices determined to be essential to their operations, from which Hays County may prohibit concealed handguns without risk of incurring the civil penalty in section 411.209 of the Government Code.

Texas Government Code 411.209:

WRONGFUL EXCLUSION OF CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE HOLDER. (a) A state agency or a political subdivision of the state may not provide notice by a communication described by Section 30.06, Penal Code, or by any sign expressly referring to that law or to a concealed handgun license, that a license holder carrying a handgun under the authority of this subchapter is prohibited from entering or remaining on a premises or other place owned or leased by the governmental entity unless license holders are prohibited from carrying a handgun on the premises or other place  by Section 46.03 or 46.035, Penal Code. Read the full code…

In a brief exchange with Rockwall County Sheriff Harold Eavenson he stridently objected to this provision of the law. He remarked how he AG would soon publish an official opinion, saying to me “we have to follow the law”. I replied, “that goes for both of us”. From this brief discussion, I got the impression he assumed the AG would rule an exception to the law, the entirety of our County Courthouse.

Sheriff Eavenson’s two objections spoken to me:

  1. too costly
  2. too many risks out there

To the first, I say let’s weigh the meager cost of screening persons entering courtrooms or court offices against the extreme cost in personal liberty guaranteed to us by the Second Amendment to our Constitution.

To the second, I say I face comparably far fewer risks in the courthouse than I do in everyday life. So I ask, is it to be every citizen is a suspect? As Thomas Jefferson said to James Madison, “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

General Paxton issued his opinion and Mr. Paxton’s interpretation of the law agrees with my own and with the opinions of the lawmakers who authored and sponsored the bills that became the law of the land.

A point of order: That county courthouse on Yellowjacket Lane is not the personal property of any elected official. That courthouse is OUR property. We are a government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Next? Will our County Commissioners Court follow the law or maintain the status quo?

What is on Obama’s agenda for 2017? Education of the Next Generation.

December 23, 2015
While in Ireland, Obama called for an end to Catholic schools. http://ow.ly/WfVXM

obama calls for an end to catholic schools

Meanwhile, here in our country, families flee public school systems in ever greater numbers as public school administrators and overseers kowtow to atheists, homosexual activists, and Muslims who wish to banish all vestiges of Christianity from public school classrooms.

All across America new private schools spring up along with home-school families and home-school cooperatives to provide solid, traditional Christian education. At the most recent annual meeting of the Texas Home School Coalition, we were given a history of the movement from a time when home-school parents were harassed and even arrested for daring to educate their own children.

Yes, there are naysayers who believe home-schools cannot possibly compare with public schools. Is this our history?

All four presidents whose sculpted faces adorn Mt. Rushmore were products of home-school education.
All four presidents whose sculpted faces adorn Mt. Rushmore were products of home-school education.

Consider these U.S. Presidents who were home-schooled: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, James Garfield, William, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Polk, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, and George Washington. Seventeen signers of he Constitutional Convention of 1787 were the products of home-school training, perhaps most notably John Witherspoon, James Madison, George Mason and Benjamin Franklin.

Abraham Lincoln wisely stated, “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”

If this flagitious fascist president and his Democrat teamates can successfully further revise public education, this nation shall become but a miserable footnote to history. Yes, we must call out those Republican-in-name-only establishment politicians who are complicit in Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform America”, as he threatened in 2008 http://ow.ly/WfYdg.

freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction

According to an ABC News poll in July of this year, 83% of your fellow citizens say they are Christians; 13% claim no religious affiliation, leaving only 4% affiliated with other religions. Take note that Muslims are in the 4% bracket. Source: http://ow.ly/WfYFx

What’s the cure? Americans who refuse to become involved in their respective communities are the reason evil triumphs. However, I point to Houston, Texas where Christians were motivated by an unholy “bathroom ordinance” to force the homosexual-led city government to nullify and repeal that onerous ordinance that permitted men to enter women’s restrooms.

All we need is for YOU to take ownership of your community.

Wind Energy Is Just a Lot of ‘Hot Air’ – Why We Must Rely On Coal and Gas for Our Electrical Energy

December 22, 2015 AD

A Realistic Look at Wind Energy

Look a second time. What do you see? Is not the unreliability of wind power not obvious?
Look a second time. What do you see? Is not the unreliability of wind power obvious? Source: ERCOT

We need high-capacity electrical power in Summer to run our air conditioners, along with all the other electrical apparatus in our homes and businesses. Look at the two columns to the far left. Note that “Installed Capacity” (in MegaWatts) for natural gas is the same as “Summer Capacity”, whereas “Summer Capacity” for wind power is merely one-eighth its “Installed Capacity”.

Environmental Impact

To construct a coal-fired electrical power generation plant, there must be a costly environmental impact assessment. The same holds true for nuclear power plant construction. Such assessments are required for wind farms, but not with the same scrutiny and most certainly not with the same worldview.

Our federal government, acting through the EPA and DOE, along with the IPCC, holds a worldview that any power plant powered by natural, God-provided ‘fossil fuels’ is inherently very bad for us. Thus, the opinion of these two leftist entities is wind power is inherently “clean” and “harmless” to the environment.

Use of windmills for the generation of electrical energy is the only legal means by which Texans can indiscriminately kill eagles and other protected species of birds and bats. Back in 2013 we know that over 600,000 bats were annually killed by windmills nationwide, according to an article in Popular Science dated November 19, 2013. Why are bats important?

Bat Conservation International says, “Many of the more than 1,300 bat species consume vast amounts of insects, including some of the most damaging agricultural pests. Others pollinate many valuable plants, ensuring the production of fruits that support local economies, as well as diverse animal populations. Fruit-eating bats in the tropics disperse seeds that are critical to restoring cleared or damaged rainforests. Even bat droppings (called guano) are valuable as a rich natural fertilizer. Guano is a major natural resource worldwide, and, when mined responsibly with bats in mind, it can provide significant economic benefits for landowners and local communities.”

How will energy removed from the winds affect agriculture in Texas? How will the destruction by windmills of birds and bats that control insect populations affect agriculture in Texas? Can there be any effects on Texas weather? No one knows. No one is asking these questions. Except little old me.

“Marxism is already here” – Cuban Refugee Speaks from Experience

Cuban refugee Manuel Martinez testifies against a gun-control bill before the Oregon Senate. Manuel knows Marxism first hand;

Gun control measures by local, state and federal governments have nothing to do with guns and everything to do with big government that subjugates its citizens as our natural rights are taken from us.

Not So Miraculous Birth – Miraculous Conception | All the More Reason to Celebrate Christmas

December 19, 2015 AD/7 Tevet 5776

Virginitas ante partum. This was the miracle.

"Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Bible scholarship points to September as the month of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem. If so, counting nine months back, Jesus was therefore miraculously conceived in the month of December.

When the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, he did not predict the birth of Jesus; Gabriel predicted his divine conception. [Ref: http://ow.ly/W6X0i]

Throughout all human history has there been only one factual, historically documented instance of parthenogenesis (Parthenos = virgin; Genesis = birth).

Skeptics who decry our Christmas celebration of the birth of our Savior remind us there were no shepherds out in the freezing winter cold in December. To the skeptics, I say, “Suck it up!” I reject all the jibber jabber about ‘pagan holidays’ and such. The fact we celebrate the birth of Jesus in December is no voluntary act of man, no coincidence at all.

In the Hebrew language, the language of the Bible, there is no word for ‘coincidence’, according to Bible scholar Rabbi Daniel Lapin [Ref: http://ow.ly/W6WuG]. As such, the reason for the season is the Grace of God that pointed men to this month.

As that “least religious” Founding Father Benjamin Franklin famously said to his fellow framers of our Constitution, “God governs in the affairs of men” [Ref: http://ow.ly/W6VMB]

At this time in history, approximately 350,000 babies are born each and every day of the year. Birth is not the miracle. Conception is the miracle of life. Therefore, we have even greater cause to defend the life of children yet unborn. [Ref: http://ow.ly/W6Vm4]

Therefore, I encourage you to celebrate the birth of the Risen Savior, a Jewish baby, born of a Jewish Virgin, a true descendant of King David, in a dusty straw-strewn barn, the month of September.

We Americans are at great risk of God’s judgment over many sinful things. Young and old alike have been led astray from our nation’s history, from a time when our government honored God to this time where even the mention of the name of Jesus Christ in a public place can result in arrest and imprisonment. We are indeed in great need of a savior.

I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be upon my lips.

My hope is for a wave, a veritable flood of the Holy Spirit upon our people to awaken us, to point us to the Way, the Truth and the Life found in no other than Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, Jesus the Christ.
