Obama's Stole Election? - Not So Fast! Republicans Did Their Part!

A Two Party Conspiracy?

For all who still think that this past Presidential election was stolen by Barack Obama via rampant voter fraud, here comes evidence maybe extremists of every political stripe can lend their ear to. Is it possible that Democrats and Republicans are in agreement when it comes to election results? Well, the courts have publicly recorded such an agreement. Can you guess what the facts are?

This article from World Net Daily says it all.

Texas Secession - Obama's Permission Required?

With Permission?

Texas bravado's most recent installation of bigger has turned out to be nothing more than the biggest political whimper since the surrender of Robert E. Lee. With the news of Obama's reelection, a petition to secede from the Union was almost immediately posted upon the White House Official Website that carries a promise to respond with a minimum of 25,000 signatures within a certain time. That time was easily met and the petition now stands at more than 110,000 signatures.

Here's the joke. The Petition, as detailed in this article from the Fort-Worth Star Telegram, asks the Federal Government to "peacefully grant" secession to the State of Texas! Can't you just hear the Texas Civil War Veterans howling from the grave? And this is supposed to be taken seriously? Asking permission to rebel?

I must admit to shaking my head about this. And the leaders of this movement are supposed to be taken seriously by their followers? If this is not a charade, then I don't know what is. And if others can't see through this half-hearted attempt to gain the attention of the Federal Government, as well as the World, then you deserve the disappointment and whatever else accompanies such a theatrical production as this.

ObamaCare & Hobby Lobby - Religious Rights or Legal Standing?

A few weeks ago, Rick Santorum got some criticism for saying the U.S. Supreme Court erred in saying states may not outlaw contraception. The idea that Americans could legally be forbidden to buy condoms or birth control pills struck most people as a gross violation of personal liberty.
Obamacare Mandate has many in a Legal Uproar

With the highly publicized case of Hobby Lobby's fight against President Obama's Health Care mandate comes polarizing viewpoints, especially in the fight against Government oppression. Many are citing the American Revolution as a guide for the ultimate resolution of this dilemma; yes, physical violence is being ultimately advocated as the only measure for reasonable citizens against the tyranny of Obama and this direct attack upon religious liberties.

While many may engage in various amounts and types of debate over this issue, there is a fundamental issue that everyone needs to be aware of. It's a legal reality of established law that most have never thought of. It's the issue of status before the court and the rights of individuals before a court.

Many are screaming about fundamental rights being violated by government, in this case the rights of the owners of Hobby Lobby. It is presumed that Hobby Lobby is a duly formed Corporation. As such, all officers of a corporation have a different legal status than that of a natural person. A person acting as a corporate officer is not guaranteed the same rights as a natural person. Why? Well, let this portion of a well established case provide the reason.
 The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the State or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend to criminate him. He owes no such duty to the State, since he receives nothing therefrom beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.
Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the State. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the State and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and find out whether it has exceeded its powers.
 Hale v. Henkel - 201 U.S. 43 (1906)

 Do you think this tidbit of legal information might make a difference when asserting that Constitutional rights have been violated?

As Christians, we need to make sure that we understand certain issues before we proceed blindly and end up suffering as evildoers, rather than as Christians for true righteousness.

President Obama, Democrats & Republicans - A Voter Fraud Conspiracy Made in...the Courts?

The Second Round of Hope & Change
 Now that president Obama has been elected to a second term as President, much of the vitriol has subsided, though not easily. The one cry that has actually intensified, though, has been the repeated call for Federal and State authorities to conduct numerous election fraud investigations. The reasons run the gambit, from vote counts higher than the number of registered voters to vote machine malfunctions to voter intimidation to votes tallied for the deceased. But the cry continues.
Your tax dollars at work!
Prior top the election, yes beginning with the beginning of the primary season, concerns about potential voter fraud were voiced by various levels of government officials, appointed and elected. So it seems that these warnings, though offered as sincere political concern, were prophetic in nature, more so than many want to acknowledge.
Only Two votes?
Normally, I wouldn't pay much attention to these cries. For those who understand the sleight of hand exercises inherent with secular politics, simply understanding the procedural charade presented to the electorate provides peace when also coupled with Biblical revelation about the powers that be.

This reality was provided in four previous links (Link 1, Link 2, Link 3, Link 4), where the details of media ownership and control of voting data was controlled by an exclusive group with no governmental oversight. Of course, interest in such stark revelations tends to be rather benign, since it derails other long term political concerns, not the least of which is maintaining the status quo. Those who may carry the banner temporarily within the public realm are usually considered too extreme to take seriously, so are ignored. Others peacefully understand and maintain a distance outside the operating margins of secular political society.

Next comes this unexpected bit of information that, though some may find shocking, is not really all that surprising for the Biblically literate Child of God. This piece in World Net Daily delivers the news that confirms what some have thought for a  long time; that Democrats and Republicans are in collusion. They are officially working together per political agreement, not with the political opposition that is constantly paraded before the populace.

Thanksgiving for The Old Paths - The Ancient Ways for Man

The Old Paths

by Martin & Deidre Bobgan

Today most Christians wonder how to help troubled people without some form of counseling, from psychological to some form of biblical adaptation. Too many see the luscious-looking grass on the other side of the fence as being good for food, pleasant to the eyes, and desirable to make them wise. 

Jesus is the good shepherd who leads His sheep to good pastures. He has given new life and sustains it through the Holy Spirit working in that new life. He has given His sheep wisdom from above through His Word, which is living, life-giving, and powerful. He is the one who searches the hearts of mankind. He is trustworthy to complete that which He has begun and to fulfill what He has promised. 
God has marked the path for us to walk in His Word

Believers need to return to the old paths rather than sniff and nibble the grass on the other side of the fence. They need to stay close to the good shepherd and they need to be wary of those who through erudite speech would entice them to another pasture. They also need to watch out for those who would plant hybrid seeds that look even better than the real thing but starve the soul.

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein (Jeremiah 6:16).

We pray that when we hear the Lord call us to the old paths we will not respond as the Israelites did, but turn again to the Lord and trust Him rather than the enticing wisdom of men. 

(PsychoHeresy Awareness Letter, January-February 2012, Vol. 20, No. 1)

Obama's 2nd Term, Politics & Christian Cowards

With the latest Presidential election almost a week behind me, the responses of religious types, though varied, seem to carry a common theme; cowardice.
Another 4 Years!
 Whether voicing disappointment, anger, frustration or renewed determination, those professing to be “God’s People” are scared to face the Truth about many things, in this case, politics.

How many are willing to admit conflicting expectations when it comes to politics and the Bible?
Can American Christians Serve Two Masters?

  For example, why do Christians expect secular politicians to return America to its “Christian” roots when, in order to officially hold office, they must first demonstrate their willingness and ability to disobey a direct command of Christ? They must first take an oath of office, something Jesus specifically forbids in Matthew 5? What kind of disconnect must there be when Christians can’t recognize this disparity. How does disobeying Christ even begin to return to Christian roots?
Jesus forbids His Followers from taking an Oath

And this is just the beginning of the conflict and disconnect.

Where are those who have the spiritual fortitude to recognize Truth as Truth rather than compromising and sacrificing their convictions upon the altar of political expediency and pragmatism?

Where are those who have the spiritual guts to speak the Truth according to the Bible rather than glibly providing Bible verses that only seem to support certain political actions and beliefs, but can be refuted by other verses and passages? When will others begin to seriously study those other verses and passages and allow then to speak on their own?

Until this happens individually and corporately, all I see is a bunch of cowards using the name of Jesus in vain. God bless those who desire the Truth, pursue and obtain it!

Post Election Questions - Christians, Politics & God's Will

 By Ryan Bush

Christian resolve is, generally speaking, quite low at the moment. 

So let's recall the recent unpleasantness that has saddened and confused the hearts and minds of millions of believers throughout the entire world and inject a sense of purpose back into the arena of Christian life. As born-again believers in Christ, we all know there's no real sense in running from our problems, right? And there's even less sense in letting a cloud of uncertainty fester and poison your outlook and weaken your faith.

With that said, let's get right to it. Barack Obama over Mitt Romney for the American Presidency: It's been on the lips of nearly every cognitive Christian for 36 hours running, and from it has sprung forth a well of deep-rooted emotion, ranging from frustration, to disbelief, to shock and to anger. And along with this, has surfaced a theme of what many on the outside looking in might consider to be supernatural occurrence. Yes, Christian America has spent the last day-and-a-half apologizing for "being so wrong" about the 2012 election. No, it wasn't Romney, but rather Obama.

For the onlooking secular crowd and the many young believers caught in the middle, these outpouring apologies from members of a religious sect that is widely viewed as a "dogmatic and thoroughly proud people" may overwhelm them with their humbleness and honesty. A Christian apologizing? A Christian admitting he was wrong? Can it be true?

Yes, it certainly is true, but as ambassadors of the risen Christ who rules at this moment from his heavenly throne, we need to address much more than just the shocking outcome on Tuesday. For a testimony to the world, as well as for the good of ourselves.

Whether you are a believer or not, please read and consider: What message does it send to the world when our prayers for the election of Mitt Romney, that we loudly prophesied to be according to Faith, ultimately wind up all for naught? What are they supposed to think after being told that Mitt Romney was "God's choice for President" that a re-elected Obama is actually "part of God's Plan?"

What happened to Romney in His plan? What happened to the saving grace that the Lord was about to bestow upon this nation that hundreds, if not thousands, of this nation's spiritual leaders promised us so confidently?

And how, after saying for so long that there was no way that a Christian could vote for Obama and all of his ultra-liberal views, can you reconcile that with the latest conclusion that God was in Obama's corner the entire way? Are you suggesting that God condones mass abortion, and a homosexual lifestyle and a communist governmental system that taxes the leather off of everyone's wallet? First God was a Being that never condones evil, now He's supposed to be all for it? Does this make God out to be a liar? Wasn't God supposed to stand with the lesser (that being Romney) of the two obviously liberal candidates? Does this mean that God is a liberal Himself?

And what of Romney's political campaign that so many Christians supported in a variety of different ways, and went on Christian talk-radio to promote Romney's cause, all in the name of Jesus? What of all the Scripture that was recited to sway voters with? Could all, or some, or the majority, of these passages from God's Word, be relegated to the status of misapplied truths in this instance, and pose as nothing more than outright lies? Have the spiritual leaders in America actually helped the throngs to live outside of the will of God, rather than directly in it?

And what is God's will in all of this, anyway? What is this "Plan" everyone keeps referring to, as if it's some exclusive club-members-only secret? A couple days ago, He was supposedly giving back America to the Christians, now some are being led to believe that we are in "exile", much like the Israelites were in the book of Jeremiah. Which one is true, if any?..............

You see, there's more here than just a little "oh, I was so wrong" moment can reconcile. You can't just shake your head and walk on, assuring everyone watching that "God's in control. This is all just a part of His plan." This isn't the time to save face. There has been damage done. There have been promises made, that have gone unfulfilled. There have been promises believed, that will never be realized. In retrospect, there have been lies spoken, and lies believed by a whole host of people that claimed to be walking hand-in-hand with the Lord. It doesn't take much of an examination to discover that such was hardly the case at all.

Yes, this election has been another disaster for the Christian world at-large. They not only have misrepresented the God of heaven and earth, but have helped make the very idea of their actually being a Supreme Being a joke to so many unbelievers watching from a distance. We have left some of them in a state of confusion, rather than conviction and faith.

The psalmist said "Teach me your way, oh Lord, that I may walk in your truths. Give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name."

Christians need to allow the Lord to teach them His way, and the only way is to go back to the Bible where all His Truth is written down. John 1 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

They need to seek the wisdom and understanding for discernment, rather than simply accepting whatever is offered to us. I John 4 offers an explicit warning to all believers: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

Who can argue with that last verse? The evidence for it is all around us. As is the Truth and wisdom of God Himself.

And if God's Truth doesn't provide a sense of purpose and direction and protection and joy within your heart, nothing on this earth ever will.

Wild At Heart - Searching for Truth in All the Wrong Places

Wild at Heart - Discovering the Secret to a Man's Soul

 If you've ever read this book by John Eldridge and are familiar with the overall content and teaching of the Bible, then you know that is is severely lacking in biblical integrity. It fails miserably to identify the needs of men and God's provision for them as revealed in the Scriptures. This book is filled with nothing more than popular psychological philosophies merged with secular ideas and Bible verses. These ideas do nothing but destroy men and their loved ones.

For a more detailed analysis of this book, please visit Christian Worldview.

The Genesis of Modern Politics II

 To understand modern politics as fully as possible, we have returned to the original establishment of politics found in the Bible. The foundational answers we seek are found in the book of Genesis.
Back to the Beginning
As previously stated, the fall of mankind because of sin led to a new relationship with God. The need for reconciliation and its recognition demands that all men approach God according to His standard, which He makes known to them. The blood sacrifice of an unblemished innocent animal of God’s choosing is required to temporarily atone for an individual’s sin and maintain fellowship with a holy God.
God's requirement for Fellowship and Atonement for sin are established
Cain rejected this standard and desired to replace it with his own. When approached by God, Cain is offered the authority of ruling over sinners and their sinful acts. Scripture doesn’t reveal that Cain officially accepted God’s offer at this time, however, his actions toward his brother Abel set the tone for what is to transpire into business as usual within the political realm of sin management.

Traditionally, it has been promoted that Cain’s action toward Abel was nothing more than murder in a jealous rage. 
Cain Kills Abel - Was it just plain murder?
Fortunately, the Scriptures reveal quite a bit more than just an emotionally driven jealousy. In fact, we find an ample amount of detail not usually considered. These details help us to understand the character of politics as ordained by God Himself from the beginning.

First it is revealed that what God mentions first is the fact of “the voice” of Abel’s blood “crying out from the ground.” Since other Scripture reveals that “the life of the flesh is in the blood,” it is important that what God is recognizing is physical life being synonymous with the blood. Therefore, the shedding of man’s blood by mankind is a serious offense, not taken lightly by God.

The most startling detail comes from the book of Hebrews. It’s a comparison between one aspect of Jesus and Cain; blood. Chapter 12, verse 24 says, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the sprinkling of blood, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”

The context of this verse within Hebrews and it’s teaching on blood is the sacrificial shedding of blood, specifically, the sprinkling of shed blood on a sacrificial altar. The Law details the requirements of God for sin’s atonement through blood sacrifice. The sacrificial blood of bulls and goats typifies the future ultimate blood sacrifice of The Lamb of God which would be enough to cover the sin of the entire world. It is within this context that we find this reference to Abel’s blood. The only way this comparison works is if Abel’s blood was shed by Cain in sacrifice upon an altar.

Is this rather startling? It should be. But this is nothing more than the beginning of revelation from Scripture regarding the founding of this World system, with its rulers ordained by God. In fact, Paul’s words to Timothy prior to his execution reveal the same mindset as Cain. In II Timothy 4:6, Paul says, “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.”
Jesus Offered Himself by the hands of the Romans - He ordained them

What a strange statement! Notice that Paul does not say that he is ready to offer himself. He said that he is ready to be offered. The significance in this lies in the fact that a sacrifice is always offered by another. The sacrifice does not shed his own blood, even though that person may make his blood available for such an activity. The blood of sacrifice is always shed by another. In the case of Paul, that would be the Caesar and his Roman government, for Caesar was the official executioner of Paul as well as Jesus, the Lamb of God, just as Cain was the official executioner of Abel. This unique relationship speaks volumes about the political structure of this World system and the relationship of God’s People to that Government.

More details to Come………………………………..

Beth Moore - Are We Listening to God's Written Revelation?

Beth Moore, as an extremely popular teacher of women, has repeatedly made an assertion in and about her life that she is attempting to make common with women everywhere. She asserts that she regularly has God "speak" to her and "reveal" things to her. She also shares the details of the practices that make these interactions with God possible.
Beth Moore - God speaks to her personally

What makes these claims so important is that these revelations form the basis for her writings and, subsequently, her speaking. And while, obviously being vital in their relation to the whole scope of her ministry, they are serious in another way. How many can claim to have God speak to them on a regular basis? How many can claim to speak and write as a direct result of God speaking to them? She is in essence claiming to speak and write the words of God. This is weighty, indeed!

For that matter, should we be so glib and lax in our approach to such claims? Should we be careful to make sure that what we are hearing and, maybe to put into practice in our own lives, is in reality, the Truth?

With that in mind, the words of God through the Prophet Isaiah are vital to us today in such a climate of competing voices and competing messages to us. Isaiah records in chapter 8 verse 20 the following; "To the law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

The prophet makes a vital connection between the Word of God and light. The Psalmist also makes the same connection when he says in chapter 119, verse 105, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Again in verse 130 he says, "The entrance of thy word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple."

Let's make sure that the message we are hearing and following agrees with the Word of God, His light for us. Let's make sure that His message, as revealed in the written Word, is the standard for all other revelation, whether it be from man, woman, angel or any other being. May He guide us into all Truth!

Beth Moore - What's the Final Authority?

I previously posted a warning about popular women's speaker Beth Moore. I continue that warning here by linking to a short video segment of Moore beginning to talk about what God revealed to her about the body of Christ.
Thumbnail of Beth Moore
Popular Teacher - Beth Moore
In this post, I continue to voice my concern for those who may be swayed by the teachings of Moore and those she recommends and whose doctrine she espouses. Though containing many innocuous sounding biblical words and phrases that are linked to the activities she endorses and recommends, the practices must be examined. We should not be so quick to accept practices just because familiar terms are used to describe them.

Once again, we must be reminded that, whatever doctrine we are examining and whoever the person may be that presents a particular doctrine, the Word of God is to be the final authority to determine its correctness. To make this statement, I refer to this verse in Isaiah 8:20, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

One Continent Under God?

Conspiracy Theorists everywhere must be full of glee. Not that they would express such anti-government sentiments publicly. Who knows who may be watching such outward expressions of inward thoughts? That's how close we are to having a broad smile be considered against the law. But, for now, laughter is still OK.

So, what are these Conspiracy nuts happy about. The New World Order! What else! It is about to officially arive in North America.

That's right! State Department officials in The United States, Mexico and Canada are discussing the details of creating what would be called The North American Union. Unifying the three countries in every aspect is not just being considered, but planned.

Don't believe me? Take a look at this article and others on World Net Daily. What certain groups have been harping about for decades, maybe centuries, is about to come to pass.

In such a scenario, what are the real changes that take place? What happens to the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Motto of In God We Trust, Old Glory, Patriotism, Military service, Political Offices, The Constitution, Border travel, Immigration between the three countries, Commerce and ..................the most volatile of all..................Religion?

Are all religions merged into one? What happens to the Baptists, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Assemblies of God, Pentecostals, Charismatics, Emerging, Anglicans, Greek Orthodox, Churches of Christ and Seventh Day Adventists? Does this North American Union become "One Continent Under God?"

Gives you something to think about, doesn't it?
