Brazil Veers Right – Is America to Follow?

In 2008, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) invited my wife and me to a harvest weekend following a two-year evangelism project called the Minha Esperança (My Hope) campaign.

brazil-my-hope-campaign-results

The election of this evangelical pastor was no accident. His election is the fruit of people of faith laboring in a field ‘white unto harvest’.

BGEA was able to unite 52,072 churches representative of 11 denominations and train and mobilize 843,320 lares Mateus (Matthew homes) that hosted three nights of televised broadcasts. Frances and I attended three different home meetings in Baptist, Methodist and Charismatic homes. The Charismatic church’s population doubled in one weekend as spiritual hunger moved people to something real.

Brazilians were following socialism, hoping for a better life. The end of socialism has been disastrous for them.

According to Gospel+, a Brazilian Christian publication published the following year, “More than 340,000 people decided to follow Jesus after watching the three programs.” [Original article in Portuguese http://ow.ly/nfJV305GKPG]

Brazil is very much like Texas. The Sao Paulo metroplex has over 33 million residents (Texas has 28 million). Starbucks, Gallerias, and so much more would make you feel right at home.

ObamaCare, aka HillaryCare, is a ‘loss-leader’ in the personal satisfaction marketplace. Socialism will forever be an economic theory because it has never been and can never be proven.

However, Christianity is a proven path to fulfillment, hope, and personal satisfaction. It was upon the principles of Christianity that our nation was founded and these principles have sustained us. At least up to this point in time.

Donald Trump’s campaign has excited millions of Americans and he will most probably become our next president. So, I have to ask, is Mr. Trump our savior? Can he extricate us from the inevitable bankruptcy of socialistic policies? I say, no.

Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”

As it was thousands of years ago in ancient Israel, King Ahab’s time of rule was marked by sin and immorality, much as our beloved America is today. As atheism, homosexuality, and lawless government are the rule and not the exception. Then as now, the prophets of God are scorned by religious leaders across this land.

I see a change coming our way, change in my own life and changes in the lives of my fellow Americans.

God’s Spirit is behind the rebirth of Christianity in Latin America, not government policies. If America is to survive, We the People of the United States of America must look also to God’s Holy Spirit for guidance.

As it is written, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.” (words of Jesus, John 16:13) And, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.” (words of the Apostle Paul, Romans 8:14)

How can you know experientially that Jesus, the Spirit of God, is working in you? Philippians 2:13 says, “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Simple one-word phenomenon: Grace.

While I am thankful Americans have seen the failures of socialism and false ‘hope and change’, it is my hope that we will be looking to the Author of Life as our hope.

Perhaps there will be a new book written in the near future titled, “The Rebirth of North American Christianity”

Debunking NASA and Global Warming/Climate Change propaganda

NASA: See How Arctic Sea Ice Is Losing Its Bulwark Against Warming Summers

The propaganda of global warming, repackaged as climate change, continues to spew forth from the fascists in power. Can we talk?

The above image and story come from NASA and I point out the obvious: Arctic sea ice always melts in our northern hemisphere summertime.

View this next image, also from NASA, posted one year ago.

NASA: NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses

Next, let’s consider semantics: a dictionary definition of the adjective ‘global’.

WordReference.com: global – relating to or involving the whole world; worldwide; universal:global weather.

A global phenomenon is one that involves the whole world. Global weather means there is evidence of the phenomenon in both hemispheres, over all continents, at all latitudes, and at all longitudes.

So, you may ask, why is the ice melting at the north pole as it grows at the south pole.

If so-called greenhouse gasses were causing global warming, then it follows that the southern hemisphere would be as affected as the northern hemisphere. But, such is not the case.

The mystery, if such there be, lies in land mass distribution. 68%  of the earth’s landmass lies north of the equator, 32% south of the equator. Reference: Univeristy of Puerto Rico

The spatial distribution of ocean regions and continents is unevenly arranged across the Earth’s surface. In the Northern Hemisphere, the ratio of land to ocean is about 1 to 1.5. The ratio of land to ocean in the Southern Hemisphere is 1 to 4. This greater abundance of ocean surface has some fascinating effects on the environment of the southern half of our planet. For example, climate of Southern Hemisphere locations is often more moderate when compared to similar places in the Northern Hemisphere. This fact is primarily due to the presence of large amounts of heat energy stored in the oceans. Reference: PhysicalGeography.net | CHAPTER 8: Introduction to the Hydrosphere

70.8% of the earth’s surface is water. 29.2% of the earth’s surface is land.

A helpful analogy: the cool summer breezes at the seashore of my hometown of Palacios, Texas, the City by the Sea.

We who grew up there know how the sun heats the land causing warm updrafts that then pull in cool breezes off the Gulf of Mexico. The sun rapidly heats land and only very slowly heats surface waters. If as a child you had an opportunity to swim in a freshwater lake in the summer, you will remember the sensations of warm water near the surface, very cool water around your feet. The separation is called a thermocline, a topic for another day.

What’s the point? The point is simply this, if greenhouse gasses were the cause of global warming, then polar ice caps would behave similarly, globally.

The reason we experience melting at the north pole is the sun quickly heats land mass over which the northern hemisphere, wind currents circulate heat from the land to the north pole. Think of the action of a kitchen mixer as you slowly pull the rotating beaters from a cake batter. Do you remember how liquefied cake mix spins out at the center of those beaters?

Yes, Virginia, the source of atmospheric heat is that great big ball of fire 93 million miles from the earth: the sun.

[The] theoretical potential represents more energy striking the earth’s surface in one and a half hours … than worldwide energy consumption in the year 2001 from all sources combined…Reference: Sandia National Laboratory Sandia.gov | Solar FAQs, page 10

President Barack Obama uses the power of his office to promote a false theory of anthropogenic global warming. As you can discern from the above-stated facts, NASA’s own scientific findings contradict the very theory Obama orders them to promote.

We must elect a president and lawmakers who will not yield to false theories promoted by liberals and the anti-American United Nations IPCC.

Establishment Republicans Awaken to a Tsunami called ‘We the People’

As the Republican National Convention closed, establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, Colin Powell, and all the Bush clan except George P. Bush, pledged their opposition to Donald Trump.

Just to be clear. Very, very clear: We the People chose Trump to be our Republican nominee for the office of President. Neither George H.W. Bush nor his sons can control the Electoral College.

trump-make-america-great-again

Here in Texas, 2/3 of us wanted Ted Cruz, but at the end of the national convention process, Donald Trump became our nominee. Period.

Collectively and separately, we the American people are Fed Up!! with establishment politicians, Democrat and Republican. We’re fed up with Republican Senators who promise to repeal ObamaCare but then refuse to do so after elections are over. We’re fed up with growing unemployment, hordes of illegal aliens, outlaw federal law enforcement, skyrocketing health insurance costs, astronomical public debt, disastrous foreign policies, and thousands of new regulations promulgated by unelected bureaucrats.

Donald Trump and Texan Ted Cruz played by the rules. They advanced through the legitimate electoral process and Trump won the most electoral votes.

Finally, establishment politicians begin to see the light, especially after breaking news around the FBI reopening its investigation of Hillary Clinton.

Ours was not founded to be a government by an elite oligarchy. Ours is not a monarchy, as King Obama would have you believe. And, no, our form of government is not a democracy. Live with it, my Democrat partisan friends.

Our form of government is that of a representative republic. Preserving the republic also preserves the principle of significance, about which I recently wrote.

A strategy by some establishment Republicans to run against Hillary’s policies, while simultaneously refusing to stand with us behind Donald Trump is a failed strategy that will produce an enormous backlash.

I voted early this past Monday. Polls are open for early voting Sunday (Oct. 30) through Friday. Election Day is November 8.

Confession: Ted Cruz was not my first choice. My first choice was Governor Rick Perry. But, Donald Trump is my candidate because he was selected by we the Republican people.

If Hillary becomes president…

clinton-emails
Bill and Hillary Clinton enrich themselves through pay-for-play schemes whereby foreign governments and greedy individuals funnel millions to them through ‘gifts’ to the Clinton Foundation and other means.

The chief reason refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and other Latin American countries flee their home countries is to escape the misery, the crime, and the official corruption of governing authorities.

Day by day, Wikileaks reveals the true nature of Hillary Clinton and what they reveal is consistent with the corruption she and Barack Obama have foisted onto us.

We the people of the United States have lost confidence in the FBI, the CIA, the DOJ, and the NSA as we see how the Democrats in power ignore the Constitution and refuse to follow the Rule of Law.

Obviously, the Democrats in power allow themselves to live by a different set of rules than those that govern ordinary citizens.

If Hillary gains control of the Executive Branch, to which country can we flee to escape official corruption?

May God have mercy on us.

Weary of election year politics? Imagine another godless president in the White House.

Weary of election year politics? Tired of campaign speeches and political analyses by TV galatians-6_7-9‘talking heads’?
 
Here’s some good news for you: Voting isn’t a privilege. Voting isn’t an option on your To-Do List.
 
Voting is your duty. In fact, God commands us to vote.
 
“Whoa! Where’s that in the Bible?” you ask.
 
Exodus 18:21 – “But select from all the people some capable, honest men who fear God and hate bribes. Appoint them as leaders over groups of one thousand, one hundred, fifty, and ten.”
 
Deuteronomy 1:13 – “Choose some well-respected men from each tribe who are known for their wisdom and understanding, and I will appoint them as your leaders.”
 
Jeremiah wasn’t a ‘bullfrog’, he was a prophet who was fed up seeing the wicked prosper. Treachery chapped his cheeks. So it was he challenged God to explain why he had to endure the corruption and sin.
 
In Jeremiah 12:5 God answered Jeremiah, saying “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you,
Then how can you contend with horses?
And if in the land of peace,
In which you trusted, they wearied you,
Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?”
 
Jeremiah’s situation is pertinent to our present situation in the United States of America. We are puzzled how prominent politicians like Hillary Clinton can get away with the crimes she has obviously committed? Why are establishment politicians allowing our nation to go to hell in a handbasket, so to speak?
 
To NOT vote is disobedience. To NOT vote is a concession that you have no faith in God to save us from inevitable consequences of the sins of our nation.
 
God doesn’t look kindly on disobedience; he enjoys and rewards obedience.
 
If you are weary with our present circumstances, imagine what life will be like if we the people do not stop atheistic unholy government now dead in its tracks.
 
Faith without works is truly dead.
 
DON’T GIVE UP. VOTE.
