War with North Korea – What you need to know

There is no suggestion the President wants to go to war with North Korea. You see, we have been at war with North Korea CONTINUOUSLY since June 25, 1950.

a state of war with north korea

Armed hostilities ended on July 27, 1953, when an armistice was signed. An armistice does not end a war; it merely suspends armed hostilities.

Armistice defined:

1- a temporary suspension of hostilities by agreement of the warring parties
2- an agreement between opposing armies to suspend hostilities in order to discuss peace terms; truce

This war with North Korea is the longest ongoing war in all U.S. history, 67 years ongoing, to be precise.

Kim Jong-un openly, publicly, and forcefully declares he will launch nuclear weapons upon the United States of America. This declaration does not start a war; it signals the imminent end to the armistice.

The “can’t we just coexist” people denounce President Trump’s open readiness for a preemptive strike.

President Trump is not a Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, or even a George Bush, with respect to his resolve to prevent a nuclear attack on these United States by a rogue North Korean government.

I applaud the President for his bold stand. We have a president who knows the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

What you need to know about Kim Jong-un

At the outset of our war with Japan, Emperor Hirohito was the god of the Japanese people. Kim Jong-un is the god of North Korea. The usual and customary mindset of people is simply this: a god is invincible, indestructible.

The present Japanese Emperor Akihito does not serve as the god of Japan. And, at the end of this present conflict, Kim Jon-un will also be proven to not be an invincible god.

There is one truly invincible God. He’s the Creator of the universe, Father of all mankind. He is our Savior, our Healer, our Provider and it is in Him that we live and move and have our being.

I choose to pray for my President and all in authority, that wisdom and discernment will prevail and that our leaders will be fearless in the defense of our country.

Bringing Post WW2 History Up to Date – U.S.-Japan Alliance

China and Japan Leaders Seek Ties Reset Amid North Korea Worries
Photo Credit: Bloomberg Politics

Japanese leaders assumed the U.S. would treat the vanquished people of their nation in the same brutal fashion Japanese leaders had treated nations they had vanquished. But, such was not to be the case.

Moving forward, in deep gratitude to Admiral Nimitz, Japanese businessmen, in an expression of gratitude to America, provided the Japanese Peace Garden you can visit today behind the old Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg, Texas.

I recall a prophetic warning by Chester Nimitz that was posted in the original Nimitz Museum, before the present day multi-building exhibition you can visit today. Nimitz remarked how Japan has become an ally, but the day would come when Japan would change its alliance from us to China.

What does this mean for U.S. influence in Far East? According to JCA-NET , there are 90 U.S. military installations on Japanese soil.

I quote:

There are approximately 90 U.S. military facilities including major military bases throughout mainland Japan and Okinawa, with an area total of 3,130,000 sq. meters, 75% of which are in Okinawa. They are concentrated in a few areas (prefectures), 37 in Okinawa, 15 in Kanagawa, 11 in Nagasaki, and 7 in Tokyo. About 52,000 U.S. troops are stationed in these bases, 26,000 in mainland and 25,000 in Okinawa (2001). In mainland Japan, the largest contingent is the air force with 6,600 and that in Okinawa marines (15,500).

The U.S. armed forces in Japan, together with U.S. forces in South Korea, are subjected to the Pacific Command located in Hawaii though the Command located at Yokota Airbase in Tokyo also functions as an auxiliary command for the forces deployed all over Japan. The forces deployed to Japan are not a separate complete military unit but integral part of the Pacific Force as the largest of the four U.S. joint forces with a vast jurisdiction extending from the U.S. western coast and the whole of the Pacific Ocean through the Indian Ocean to the eastern coasts of Africa.

The main U.S. bases in mainland Japan include Misawa airbase in Aomori Prefecture up in the north of Honshu Island, Yokota Airbase in Tokyo, Yokosuka naval base in Kanagawa Prefecture, Atsugi base in the same prefecture, Iwakuni marine base near Hiroshima, and Sasebo naval base in Nagasaki Prefecture. Also there are munitions depots, communication bases, port facilities, warehouses, military barracks, [and] residential estates.”

If, when, Japan switches alliances from the U.S. to China, our military installations will be forced to leave, as it happened in the Philippines. That time will mark the end of U.S. military dominance in the Far East.

What are the possibilities?

  • China forges alliances with Japan and South Korea, based on common economics.
  • China forecloses on North Korea in order to reunite the Korean Peninsula.
  • One by one, South-east Asian countries, and possibly Australia, switch alliances from the U.S. to China.

What to do?

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, for President Donald Trump’s good success and health, for the Spirit of God to flood the earth.

The Founders cited 27 causes for separation and taxation wasn’t number one. You didn’t know?

The Founders cited 27 causes for separation and taxation wasn’t number one. You didn’t know?


Taxation without representation was way down the list, number 17, to be precise. This cause was certainly important, but not the greatest provocation to rebellion.

What was the number one reason cited by the founders to “to dissolve the political bands” with Great Britain?

Answer: King George did not follow the Rule of Law.

Grievance No. 1: “He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”

Instead of following Common Law, King George, speaking metaphorically, used his pen and his telephone to create law out of thin air.

What was the second in importance grievance that moved us to rebellion?

Grievance No. 2: “He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.”

The federal judiciary has been overstepping its constitutional jurisdiction to impose immoral and illegal constraints on the fifty states as it also has been creating law out of thin air. It’s called ‘case law’, but I challenge the reader to find the term anywhere in the U.S. Constitution Articles and Amendments.

On this solemn 241st anniversary of the birth of our nation, we find ourselves once again resetting the role of federal government.

Will there be bloodshed? In case you haven’t noticed, blood is flowing in the streets of our major cities now.

Proponents of Sharia Law challenge constitutional law.

Americans, sensible to the perils of lawlessness and out-of-control federal government, are buying firearms and ammunition at a breathtaking pace.

But, God has answered the prayers of his people. We are at a turning point. If We the People who wish to make America great again turn to God and repent of our collective and individual sins, God will preserve us.

We cannot and will not make America great again solely through political acts. Renewal of our nation of necessity will be a consequence of our people yielding to the Grace of God.

Honor your mother…while you can

The following video serves as a warm up leading to Mothers Day 2017. Keep a hanky nearby.

As it was for the young man in the above video, my mother worked from 4 am to as late as 11 pm to support my two sisters and me. Life was very difficult throughout out formative years and we didn’t see much of our mother, but she made sure we had decent clothing while her own underwear was ragged and with holes. She did without much, but she made sure we were covered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield medical insurance. Meals were uncertain, but somehow she made do and we never went to bed hungry.

Mom remarried when I as 15. Our new stepfather took on three teenagers who grew up without a man in the family. The first year was tumultuous, but Dad didn’t give up on us and we came to love him as though he was our natural father.

Me, seated on Mom’s lap, about 1951

Ephesians 6:2-3 commands us to “Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.”

The Apostle Paul quotes the fifth of the ten commandments God gave to the Israelites through Moses: “Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”

Mom was a generous woman who followed the Biblical mandate to not allow the left hand to know what the right hand was doing.

At her graveside funeral service, an older couple approached to introduce themselves. They wanted us to know their story of desperation during the Great Depression. Mom took them into her home, fed them and gave them clothing. The couple stayed in Mom’s home for over six months before the man found work enough to support his young wife. He said to me, “Not once in all that time did she ask when I was going to go to work.” Her generosity sustained a destitute young couple through the most difficult time in U.S. history. The man added, “We knew we had to share our story with you.”

This Mothers Day 2017 I honor my mother, Adele Elizabeth Morris White, who sacrificed so much of her life to give a good life for my two sisters and me.

Trump is right on Syria & North Korea – I was wrong

Lance Wallnau posted a prophetic Passover message on Facebook regarding President Trump’s military actions against Syria, North Korea, and Russia.

He introduces his 28-minute video message with this text:

PASSOVER PROPHECY – Cyrus Trump and North Korea…

Donald Trump, the 45th President is walking through the Cyrus prophecy of Isaiah 45 even as we speak! It starts in verse 1: “To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held- to subdue nations before him and to loose the loins of kings…” Trump had no interest in Syria till his heart was moved by the sight of suffering children. In this brief video, I explain why God is getting this President involved with nations and what it means to “loose the loins of kings.”

Notice the timing! We are right now in the Hebrew feast of Passover – but this is no ordinary Passover. In fact, Justice Gorsuch was sworn in on the first night of Passover. This year 2017 is prophetic for Gods people and Israel. They will experience its 50th anniversary of recovering their capital, Jerusalem. The 70th year of their formation as a nation and 100th anniversary of the return of Jews to their Homeland.

The feast of Purim is passed – where we prayed for Haman’s plot to be exposed and the illegal surveillance of Trump and team began to trace itself to Susan Rice’s door at the Dept of Justice.

The President struck Syria and reset the role of the United States in the world… and in one blow unraveled the political witch hunt seeking to prove he was in Putin’s back pocket.

Now North Korea is on the front burner. What will happen? I’d like to share what I see in Isa 45 that applies to Cyrus Trump!

As I wrote earlier this Spring, I believe God’s hand raised up Donald Trump at this time in human history to protect Israel and to advance the Church, the Body of Christ, to overcome the powers of darkness personified through atheists, the LGBTQ activists, and antagonistic persons like George Soros. Read Skeptics look to Donald Trump’s past – God looks to President Trump’s future posted 326/2017

I expected President Trump to hold faithfully to his campaign promises. When he attacked Syria, I posted We elected President Trump because we want a president who follows the rule of law – So, why attack Syria? on 4/17/2017

I was wrong to think our President had forsaken the calling of God to be the Cyrus of our generation. I repent.

Lance Wallnau helped me to restore my confidence in the Grace of God on the life of President Donald Trump.

Skeptics look to Donald Trump’s past – God looks to President Trump’s future

Back in 2015 when Dr. Lance Wallnau prophesied billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump would become our 45th president, I thought he had gone mad. We Texas Republicans voted overwhelmingly for Texan Ted Cruz and we fully expected Ted to be the 45th. But, that Tuesday evening when the primary polls closed in Indiana the electoral vote count cemented Mr. Trump’s candidacy as the GOP presidential candidate. The rest is history.

Pastor Saeed Abedini Prophesies Donald Trump Will Usher the World Into a New Millennium

As a delegate to the Texas State Republican Convention who expected Senator Ted Cruz to rise to the top, the Trump win stunned me. My prayer that Tuesday evening before the convention was, “G-d, give me a reason to attend the convention.” I prayed. G-d answered – via Twitter. There on my computer screen, late that evening was a tweet from Lance Wallnau who remarked, “Remember what I told you?” That tweet marked a pivotal moment for me.

USA Today reports that Dr. Lance Wallnau, an internationally recognized speaker, business

and political strategist is one of only three evangelical leaders to have accurately predicted Donald Trump’s Presidency. Dr. Wallnau’s best-selling book, “God’s Chaos Candidate” is credited as being the catalyst that mobilized thousands of Christians to vote for Donald Trump and contributed to Trump’s unprecedented election victory. Lance cites Isaiah 45, the Biblical prophecy of Cyrus as G-d’s description of the Trump presidency.

Rick Joyner, founder of MorningStar Ministries in Fort Mills, SC, and Pastor Robert Jeffress of the Dallas First Baptist Church boldly predicted businessman Trump would be the next president.

With all the well-organized well-funded opposition from ‘community organizer’ Barack Hussein Obama and his Organizing For Action (OFA) ready-made mob machine, the spineless actions of congressional Republicans, and a hostile left-wing media, forward progress seems doubtful.

It is for such a time as this Pastor Saeed Abedini speaks wisdom to America. Saeed remarked on Facebook, “He is a modern day Cyrus and he has a special calling and anointing for what he has been called by God to do. Mr. Trump will take the whole world NOT just America to the new level that the world never has never seen before.

CNN, UNIVISION, MSNBC and all the rest of the left-wing media would have you believe the Trump presidency is on life support. Fear not. G-d’s hand is on our president whose accusers relentlessly dredge up Mr. Trump’s past. All the while G-d is making a way where there seems to be no way.

The King of Kings has a more durable kingdom than the King of Pot

thy kingdom comeOn which subject did Jesus Christ teach most often? Was it money?  No. Was it adultery? Not that either.

The top subject of Jesus’ teachings is the Kingdom of God, aka the Kingdom of Heaven. A New Testament word search of the 21st Century King James Version (no, I haven’t researched all versions) yields a count of 125 instances of the topic of money and 164 instances of the topic of the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven. Counting further, Jesus used the phrase ‘my kingdom’ three times and the phrase ‘His kingdom’ (referring to God’s kingdom) 12 times. In all, Jesus referred to the Kingdom of God 179 times.

Inarguably, peace is the most sought commodity anywhere on the earth. The most sought coin by coin collectors is the Eisenhower Peace silver dollars, according to the U.S. Coin Guide.

There is the lesser kingdom of drug addiction that rules the lives of its legal and illegal subjects.

Deep in the heart of the Kingdom of Pot in northern California, congregants depart this for a more durable peace in the Kingdom of God.

From The Baptist Press read:

Church in marijuana mecca offers ‘radical grace’

As recorded in John 14:27 (NLT), Jesus said, “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

Pot users flock to Arcata, California to find fleeting peace through pot and wind up finding everlasting peace through a local portal into the Kingdom of God.

Speaking to doubting Thomas, Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!

Are you desperate for peace today? I have good news! You don’t have to travel to Arcata, California to find it. Jesus is omnipresent. He’s waiting for you to open your heart to him.

In August of 1974, I was unemployed and in a desperate situation. I told my wife, “I don’t know what to do.” She said we needed to go to church. After a divine encounter with the Creator of the Universe, the King of kings, I became a new creature. Changes began overnight and continue these many years later on.

As I move into my twilight years, I don’t fear death; I just want others to experience this radical peace only found in the Kingdom of God.

Call on him while you can. There comes a time when it will be too late.
