Jerusalem Wake-Up Call – Wars and Rumors of Wars

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

To the Muslims, we Christians and Jews are known as ‘Ahl-e-Kitab’ (People of the Book). ‘The Book’ is the Holy Bible. We are also called Kaffir (singular) and Kuffar (plural), a derogatory name for all non-Muslims.

Against kuffars make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war to strike terror into the (hearts of) the Enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside, whom you may not know, but whom Allah does know. Whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah, shall be repaid to you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.” (Qur’an: 8:60)

We who live in Rockwall, Texas get an impression from the news media that Muslim war

3262-medical-plaza-drive-garland
Islamic Services Foundation

on Jews and Christians is far away on the other side of the world. What if you knew this war on People of the Book (POB) was much closer? How about as close as Garland, Texas?

The Islamic Services Foundation is located at 3262 Medical Plaza Dr # 105, Garland, TX. From this location less than 15 road miles from Rockwall City Hall, Sheikh Ramadan Elsabagh calls for the destruction of our nation. I quote:
“… O Allah, be with your oppressed worshipers in Palestine, O Allah destroy the Zionists and their allies, and those who assist them and those who allowed them into the abodes of the Muslims…” Reference – WND, TEXAS IMAM CALLS FOR ISRAEL’S DESTRUCTION – IN ARABIC, 12/9/2017

Allow me to break this down for you: Sheikh Ramadan Elsabagh is calling on his Allah to destroy the United States of America. (You are not paranoid. They truly are out to get you.)

America has been under attack in one way or another since the founding of our country. President Thomas Jefferson read and studied the Quran to know the enemy and he knew the capabilities of the United States. Thus equipped, Jefferson attacked and subdued the Barbary pirates. Well, we Americans called them pirates, but they were actually privateers operating under the authority and auspices of the Ottoman Empire.

That’s the bad news. Here’s the good.

Isaiah 53:1-12 is a prophecy of the Messiah penned about 700 BC. Fulfillment of this ancient prophecy began with the birth of the Lamb of God in Bethlehem just south of Jerusalem. (All the sacrificial lambs destined for the Temple in Jerusalem were born and raised in this little city.)

It is written in Zechariah 14:12 how nations will gather to attack and plunder Jerusalem, but the Lord will then do battle with those nations. It’s going to be messy as are all wars, but the end will be glorious.

Is God using President Trump to gather the Muslim nations against Israel? He hasn’t directly informed me one way or another, but it appears to me to be so.

Is a Middle East war imminent? I think not. This present situation more probably qualifies as a rumor of war.

What the Muslim preachers avoid discussing is the massive conversions of Muslims to Christianity. God appears to Muslims throughout the world in dreams and visions. To me, this is also glorious! Reference – Fox News: Muslim converts breathe new life into Europe’s struggling Christian churches

Wayne Hamit, a Muslim Background Believer (MBB), pastors Hope Lutheran Church in Corinth, TX. We met over coffee some years ago. Wayne is “a management consultant, military veteran, law enforcement officer, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and pastor. He has worked throughout the world and has served government leaders as a consultant on security as well as social and economic development.”

Pastor Hamit is a living, breathing testament to the Grace of God as is Pastor Karim Baidaoui, an MBB Lutheran evangelist who explained to me why Muslims are coming to this country. “God“, he said, “is bringing them here because we can’t go there.” (Baidaoui is my last name in Morrocan, as in Casa Blanca)

As Sun Tzu taught, victory depends on knowledge of your enemy and of yourself.
Jesus said, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life,and that they may have it more abundantly.”

Look up, for your redemption draws nigh.

In Search of Differences Between Socialism and Fascism

nazi salute composite
Word of the day: Nationalsozialismus

Campus political activists decry Republicans, in particular, President Trump, as NAZIs. Is this a reasonable characterization?

What is the origin and meaning of the term NAZI?

NAZI is a German acronym that stands for ‘Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei’, or National Socialist German Workers Party.

What is the difference between socialism and fascism?

“It is too obvious, too easily demonstrable that fascism and communism are not two opposites, but two rival gangs fighting over the same territory—that both are variants of statism, based on the collectivist principle that man is the rightless slave of the state—that both are socialistic, in theory, in practice, and in the explicit statements of their leaders—that under both systems, the poor are enslaved and the rich are expropriated in favor of a ruling clique—that fascism is not the product of the political “right,” but of the “left”—that the basic issue is not “rich versus poor,” but man versus the state, or: individual rights versus totalitarian government—which means: capitalism versus socialism.” – Ayn Rand

“two rival gangs fighting over the same territory”

“the basic issue is not “rich versus poor,” but man versus the state, or: individual rights versus totalitarian government”

How is it one day after Pearl Harbor Day 2017 millennials say they prefer socialism over free-market capitalism?

Read my blog titled Kaepernick Conundrum http://bit.ly/2B0SGPB where I identify liberal public education and historical revisionism as the root causes of animosity toward the greatest nation to ever exist on earth.

As Christmas 2017 approaches, it is my prayer, my desire, for the Peace of God to rule America and for the Holy Spirit of God to reveal truth to the youth of our nation.

Election Results – Predetermined Outcomes

The fundamental role of election cycles is to provoke voters to think and to be led by God’s grace. In the end, regardless your partisan affiliation, the King of Kings casts the tie-breaking vote.

The Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world daniel 4-17 nlt.png

As it is written in Daniel 2:21, “And He [God] changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.

Our future peace or the lack thereof will be determined by our collective response to God’s grace. Philippians 2:13 says, “for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”

Registered voters bear a tremendous responsibility, but few respond to this divine grace. Too often as few as 6% of eligible voters turn out to vote right here in Rockwall County.

There are numerous voter guides from which to choose candidates and issues but there is only one truly accurate ‘voter guide’ and He is the Holy Spirit.
Debates are good. Conversations around political themes are also good. But obedience to the will of God trumps all political activities.

Choose wisely, my friends and pray first before making your choices.

The Kaepernick Conundrum

Read the original lyrics of our national anthem here: The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics

The third stanza is the root of Kaepernick’s conundrum

star spangled banner third chorus - the kaepernick conundrum

There is no better explanation of the references to hirelings and slaves in the third stanza than this opinion piece published by CNN. I quote the central text and you can read it in its entirety via the link below.

CNN: ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ critics miss the point | By Mark Clague, Updated 11:15 PM ET, Wed August 31, 2016

“The Star-Spangled Banner” in no way glorifies or celebrates slavery. The middle two verses of Key’s lyric vilify the British enemy in the War of 1812, what Key refers to in Verse 3 as “hirelings and slaves.” This enemy included both whites and blacks, largely British professional soldiers (hirelings) but also the Corps of Colonial Marines (slaves). The Colonial Marines were escaped black American slaves who joined British forces because of the promise of freedom in return for fighting their former masters.

Fortunately, Britain honored this promise after the war, relocating the former slaves and their families to Halifax and Trinidad. For Key, however, the British mercenaries were scoundrels and the Colonial Marines were traitors who threatened to spark a national insurrection.

The graphic language of Key’s denunciation of this British enemy led to the removal of Verse 3 in sheet music editions of the song in World War I, when the United States and Britain became staunch allies.

Yet in 1814 Key’s lyric honored American soldiers both black and white. “The Star-Spangled Banner” celebrates the heroes who defended Fort McHenry in the face of almost certain defeat against the most powerful gunships of the era. America’s soldiers included mainly whites, but also free and escaped blacks. Escaped slave William Williams served in the US infantry at Fort McHenry and was killed by a fragment of a British bomb. Another escaped slave, Charles Ball, writes in his memoirs of being among the American soldiers of the Chesapeake Bay Flotilla who courageously repelled a night attack and saved the city. “The Star-Spangled Banner” thus honors American military heroes, black and white, without regard to race. In this respect, “The Star-Spangled Banner” is not racist.

I remind you the above opinion came not from a conservative news source but CNN.

No doubt Colin Kaepernick is a victim of biased, liberal educators commonly found on college campuses throughout America.

This is an opportunity for me to inject my reason for supporting the Texas State GOP platform plank for School Choice, Texas GOP 2016 Platform [item no. 147].

The vast majority of families will continue to send their children to public schools and universities. There are families like my own that want our children and grandchildren to know our full and complete national history; the good, the bad, and the ugly. We want our offspring to think critically, to research original documents, and to be able to debate both sides of issues.

Colin Kaepernick’s jaundiced understanding of American history is the product of historical revisionism. Former President Barack Obama was likewise educated by leftists, communists, and atheists.

Elections have consequences, good and bad. If we allow statists – persons who subscribe to the belief that the state knows what’s best for you at the expense of your liberty – to legislate contrary to the will of the people, we will indeed have much more miseducated progeny.

Choose wisely, my friends.

Behind the Scenes of the Mueller Witchhunt to Discredit President Trump

Hillary Clinton said, “Russia has been an ally.” She publicly stated to the Russian ambassador, “We want to reset our relationship.” Why, after all these years of Russian enmity and Russia’s propagation of communist doctrine, would Hillary want to make up and be pals with the Russians? It was to facilitate her sale of American uranium to Russia and you surely understand the role of uranium in the fabrication of nuclear weapons.

deep state - the enemy within
A nation cannot survive treason from within…The traitor moves freely within..his sly whispers heard within the very halls of government itself. – Marcus Tullius Cicero

I invite you to view the video, then read a statement from Scott Wheeler. Afterward, please share this blog posting.

The following advisory is from Scott Wheeler, GOP Trust Executive Director

Breaking — Rep. Trey Gowdy said that FBI Director Comey told members of Congress that Gen. Flynn did not intentionally lie to the FBI

Yesterday a plea agreement was announced between Gen Michael Flynn and Special Counsel Mueller’s office. We have called this from the beginning. Notice what Gen Flynn pleaded guilty to, it wasn’t a Justice Department paperwork infraction regarding his work for Turkey. It was the far less important charge of lying to the FBI about a conversation he had with the Russian foreign minister, after the election.

There was no reason for Flynn to lie to the FBI about that conversation. It was, in fact, perfectly legal. The discussion was pertaining to cooperation with the Russians on fighting ISIS and about sanctions against Russia. It was perfectly legal for Flynn to have that conversation. Flynn said he didn’t recall the conversation, so how could the special counsel prove otherwise?

The fact is, they seemed to have threatened Flynn with things he could have been prosecuted for, but then said if you agree to the charge of lying to the FBI we will only charge you with that crime.

Why that crime? Because it fits the narrative that Mueller and the Democrats, along with their media allies, are trying to sell to the American people — that President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Absent from the special counsel’s charge against Flynn is any illegal action regarding the conversation with the Russian foreign minister — it was completely legal. What they discussed is what they should have been discussing. This all falls into the category of the things we have been reporting to you would happen.

We have reported to you time and again that impeachment is a political matter not a criminal matter. Mueller and the Democrats are trying to push a majority of people to support impeachment, and the more they can make it look like “Trump Russia collusion”, the easier impeachment will be without any political cost to the Democrats. In fact, they are preparing to call themselves “heroes” for this attack on our nation and our election.

Now you might be thinking, well, even if they impeach Trump we still have conservative Mike Pence to take over. That is not what the Democrats have in mind. They are plotting to take Pence out with the same “collusion” story they have concocted to get Trump.

It is up to us, that is you and our team together, to blow the whistle on this corrupt scheme and expose Hillary Clinton in the process. We may be the only group that can get justice. But we can do nothing without you.

Our investigation has led to the Russia story being turned against the Clintons, but we must continue to investigate and we must get the new ad seen everywhere. That is the only way we will get justice.

We need everyone reading this message to kick in whatever they can to help with these efforts. We need one hundred of you to give a thousand, and everyone else to give what they can. This is a very important effort.

McCarthy was right – He just went about proving the case of communists in government the wrong way

The NSA has declassified a trove of documents that reveal KGB communications with hundreds of communists working within our federal government.

One example: TOP SECRET Report No. 1657, dated 27 November 1944 | Link to NSA archive: 27nov_mrs_rosenberg

In this document, code name LIBERAL is Julius Rosenberg. The document calls out his wife Ethel Rosenberg by her real name.


You can review all the declassified, decoded VENONA messages from the NSA website at https://www.nsa.gov/news-features/declassified-documents/venona/dated/1944/

On June 19, 1953, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed by electric chair in Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York.

At trial, the Rosenbergs declared their innocence. Naturally, the Rosenberg sons Michael and Robert, six and ten years of age when their parents were executed, wanted very much to clear their parents of wrongdoing, but upon release of the VENONA papers in the 1990s they came to realize and acknowledge their parents were, in fact, Soviet spies. Learn more about Julius Rosenberg from his biography.

Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) was correct on the fact of communist spies in U.S. government, but his theatrics and his desire for fame backfired. The truth about communist infiltration essentially legitimized communism in the U.S.A.

Are there communists in our government today? There were well-known communists serving in the administration of Barack Obama.

Van Jones became a communist while involved with San Francisco radicals. He came to know communists while in jail where he and they were incarcerated. In his own words, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.” [Reference: East Bay Express – The New Face of Environmentalism 11/2/2005]

Former President Barack Obama told a group of young people in Argentina not to worry about the differences between capitalism and communism and “just choose from what works.” [The Washington Times, March 25, 2016]

Why would Obama sanction communism? Consider his parentage, his upbringing, his mentors and his associations. His parents were communists, his grandparents were communists, his mentors were communists, and his liberal education inspired communism.

As you will learn from the above video, Obama lauded Fidel Castro and Cuban communism.

Investors Business Daily referred to communists in the Obama administration as “Red-diaper babies”. IBD describes Jeh Johnson in an article titled Add Homeland Security’s Jeh Johnson To List Of Obama Red Diaper Babies. In this article,  IBD calls out “top White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, former political advisor David Axelrod and President Obama himself”.

Is communism truly alive in America today? I would say even more than during WW2 and the Cold War.

Learn from the Communist Party USA website how the communist movement is large and lively and at the heart of the Anti-Trump activities.

Communist Party Goal: Rebuilding the Communist Party in the fight against Trump, 26 November 2017

University of Hawaii: HOW MANY DID COMMUNIST REGIMES MURDER? “…the Soviet Union appears the greatest ‘megamurderer’ of all, apparently killing near 61,000,000 people. Stalin himself is responsible for almost 43,000,000 of these.” To these, we can add Cambodia’s Pol Pot, Cubas Fidel Castro, and China’s Mao.

Does communism pose a threat to American freedoms? Have you not heard about so-called ‘free speech zones’ on college campuses? An article in The Federalist, dated 23 August 2017 reports How American Anarchy Parallels China’s Cultural Revolution.

Tell-tale features of the communist movement in America include:

  • free-speech zones on college campuses
  • social justice activists (NFL anthem protesters, Black Lives Matter,
  • political correctness (aka fascism)
  • assaults on First Amendment freedoms
  • sanctuary cities that defy the Supreme Law of the Land
  • a growing atheist movement
  • anarchy

What’s the cure? No political action, no act of Congress, no executive order can stop the march of communism. Only divine, miraculous revelations of Jesus Christ to the youth of America can change the course.

Communism is the systematic plan of Satan to wipe out all vestiges of Judeo-Christian faith in the Living God as our source of peace and our divine provision.

In this year, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, expect a global revival to sweep billions into the Kingdom of God. Let’s be aware global atheism, anarchy, wars, and rumors of war will greatly increase before the full manifestation of the revival.

Meanwhile, follow the direction of the Apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2:2. “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
