Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

From Peter to Peter: The Rise and Fall of the Catholic Church

Religion....a word for which I hold great ambivalence.  Fully aware that man made religions are man's way of trying to reach God, often times stepping over and around God's way of trying to reach man, Jesus Christ, It is relatively easy to find fault in man's efforts.

I was born into a catholic family, baptized as a baby in the catholic religion, made my First Holy Communion in the catholic religion and was Confirmed in the catholic religion.  I was an altar boy.  I attended catholic grade school and a couple of years of the largest co-ed catholic high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin....Pius XI High School.  I know something about this religion or would not feel qualified to discuss it's merits or demerits.  None of the above sharing of sacraments was by choice...I was indoctrinated into that religion as I am sure many of you are indoctrinated into varying protestant sects, Hinduism, Taoism, Islam and you name it....you wre dragged to a church, synagogue, mosque ever since you were in diapers.  When I was a child, I thought and acted as a child....as an adult, I am all out of excuses.

When I was 17 I was quartered at a place in Milwaukee called Perpetual Help Boy's Home after having previously been sheltered at the Milwaukee County Children's Home and about 4 foster homes after the marriage of my parents (when I was about 8) dissolved as the marriage of two drunks often do.  When we weren't actually doing homework at the home quite often you could find us pushing cinder blocks on top of cut up army blankets on our hands and knees shining the linoleum floors in that place.

Nineteen days after my 17th birthday in January, 1964 Milwaukee County signed for me to join the United States Marine Corps where I stayed for the next 9 years.  My dog tags during the entire period, including two 13 month tours in Vietnam (Marine's did 13 month tours), stated 'NO PREF' in a place where one would normally expect to find a religion....I suppose so they knew how to bury you in case that was required.

At that time in my life I found no fault with any religion nor did I have any preference and I suppose I considered myself agnostic at the time or very certainly, disinterested.  Five years after I was honorably discharged from the Marines I was attending a non-denominational full gospel church in Alexandria, Virginia with a girl friend and the Holy Spirit pricked my heart as the pastor of that church provided a message followed by an altar call asking those present who would turn their lives and hearts over to Jesus Christ.  I was born again in the Spirit on that day....and then my 'religious' education began.

Unlike my catholic experience, wherein we had these little catechism books and nuns and priests told us what they thought we ought to know about God and His word, I began to carry and study the bible.  Prior to this time I suppose it would not have done me much good to study the bible as '...the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?  But we have the mind of Christ'.  I Corinthians 2:14-16.  The day I accepted Christ as my Saviour I unwittingly obeyed Jesus Christ, not knowing the scripture at the time, to be born again in the Spirit....even as Jesus told Nicodemus he must be in order to be saved in John 3:3 and emphasized again in John 3:7.  From that day forward, I have been indwelt by God's Holy Spirit who among other functions serves to give us that spiritual discernment necessary to understanding the Word of God.

Today, I am a member of a particular religion but as you might suspect, it is a religion in which I hear that altar call every time the church doors are open as the ministers obey the Great Commission of God which is to further the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Which religion does not matter as all I care about is that they are true to God's Word which I can now understand and if I am seated someplace where I hear lies, half-truths about social justice and/or collective salvation, I get up, kick the dust from my heels and depart that assemblage of dead men's bones filling the pews.

Reading the bible, I have never been able to find that connection between the Apostle Peter, whom the catholic church claims as their first pope and the catholic church.  I find where God instructs us to call no one Father but Him and I find where there is but 'one God and one intermediate between God and men, the man Christ Jesus' (1st Timothy 2:5) but no catholic connection.  Nor connection to any religion for that matter.

Catholicisms' St. Malachy went to Rome in 1139 and gave Pope Innocent II a prophetic manuscript detailing the prothetical announcements, in number 112, indicating some noticeable trait of all future popes from Celestine II, elected in 1130, until the end of the world. Malachy did this in an effort to cheer up Innocent II during his period of tribulations.  Benedict XVI is listed and Malachy saw him as one who would be a peacemaker in the Chruch and in the World, and thus carry the olive branch.  I know him as one who has come against the Obama administration pronouncements of collective salvation and social justice as a means to individual salvation. 

St. Malachy concludes with Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman), also known as the defective pontiff who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable judge will judge his people. 

Prophecy tells us about the soon to appear man of perdition, Mr. 666 otherwise known as the Anti-Christ and of his evil side kick the false prophet.  Peter the Roman will likely be this false prophet as he seeks to join the major religions of the world into a 'one world religion' thereby quelling the murderous tendicies of the muslim and the ability of the Christians to continue to spread the 'intolerant' gospel of Jesus Christ which holds that there is only one way to heaven, through belief in Jesus Christ. 

Far fetched you say....so was the idea of a one world government and the yuan world monetary system which by now, under Obama, we see right around the corner.

Bottom line people, it is still all about God's chosen people Israel....as this 7 year revamped Oslo Accord finally gets inked and we see Israel encompassed about by her enemies with Syria gaining the Golan Heights and edomites in a clear position to finally eradicate their life long enemy, the Jew, then shall the end come.  Clear thinking fellow Americans will not wish to be part of that scenario.  Before that man of perdition can even be revealed the born again in the Spirit Christians will be taken up (raptured if you will) not to be seen again  until after the 7 year great tribulation period.

My source for the prophecies of Malachy is http://www.catholic-pages.com/ so this you can read for yourselves and after you are born again, you can read the bible yourself and understand.

Being born again in the Spirit is as simple as what you will find and can understand in Romans 10:8-10.  You have no excuse for dying in your sin.  Like they say, be born once and you will die twice but if you are born twice, you will only die once.

This is by no means to be taken as trashing the catholic as there truly is no christian religion, no christian nation, no christian church....Christians only come in individual sizes.... as we are born again.

Thanksgiving: Faith, Family and Flag

Even as progressives (read communist) in Washington, DC do their utmost to shred the Constitution, our American Republic and our ability to sustain our families and ourselves we have much for which we can be thankful.

Democrats, progressives, liberals and other communist leaning abortionists, homosexuals and usurpers associated with the Obama administration, your thankfulness is but delusional and certainly fleeting in nature.  Eat your tofu and skip this blog.

For my fellow faith filled, born again in the Spirit Christian brothers and sisters, "Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ".  Philippians 4:6-7.

Christians, you have heard it said "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.  And then shall many be offended and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.  But he that endure unto the end, the same shall be saved".  Matthew 24:9-13.

We know that we are in for one hell of a ride and because that is true, you must guard your faith.....do not wax cold and when all is said and done, you will be standing and praising God.  "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord".  Romans 8:35-39.

Your faith, my fellow born again Christians will allow you to understand "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose".  Romans 8:28

If you have your families around you this holiday and Obama has not divided you, one from another, be thankful.  Times are such that which was foretold must come to pass and many fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers will turn against each other....if your family is in tact....be thankful.

Our flag should be flying at half mast and should have been ever since we thought it was a good idea, as a nation, to murder the first child in mom's womb.  We know that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the sick sin of homosexuality and we have not thought enough of America to ensure that the same fate does not befall us...fly your flags at half-mast.  We have evicted God from the public square, from our lives and from the upbringing of our children....fly your flags at half-mast.

When we are told that all nations will come against Israel in the last days....we did not read, except America.  I know that you and I do not support President Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood but we have elected him to lead and be the voice of our nation....we too, are against Israel.

When all is said and done tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, think on these things.  Your faith, hope and charity, apart from God means absolutely nothing.  Your family, your blood relations who have not been born again in the Spirit (John 3:3 and John 3:7) should not be the reason why you let  your own soul perish in hell.  These things must come to pass and on that day when we once again see Jesus Christ and the new Jerusalem as that shining city upon the hill arises anew, you will understand the insignificance of that flag worn on the lapels of those in Washington, DC who have made it their goal in life to finally destroy that 200 year experiment that once was 'One Nation, Under God'.  On those people, the Nancy Pelosis', the Harry Reids', the George Soros' of the world, that flag is but bling even as the cross worn around the necks of gangsta rappers, gang bangers and other such murderers that roam our city streets.

Obama Too Brilliant for Mere Mortals to Understand

That particular load of crap comes to us via our crazy Uncle Joe (Biden).  He would have us believe that the average American isn't in lock step with our communist president Obama because we simply do not understand Obama.

Please....Uncle Joe....I know it is nearing Thanksgiving Day but do you really have to visit us this year again?  I have long since relegated you to the dung heap of past family crazy uncles like Uncle Joe (Stalin) and Uncle Ho (Chi Minh).

America has awakened from her slumber and the transparency that Obama promised when he was running for office is finally being viewed by all.  We see the measures he is taking to destroy industries, jobs and the American way of life along with her Republic.

We know that the spending and regulations his czardom and immoral  congress has burdened America with is a price that we cannot pay and will not......even as the lame duck losers are doing their utmost to foist the so called dream act (amnesty for illegal Mexicans) upon us, continued unemployment benefits past the two year mark all the while creating an atmosphere in which jobs and opportunities decline.

One final note....if Obama is as brilliant as Biden says (compared to Biden, most people are brilliant) then why is it that Obama cannot explain himself so that the average citizen can understand him?  Obama indeed is probably a foreigner (Kenyan) but he does have a pretty firm grip on the english language so why is that he cannot explain himself.  That was a teaser....Obama cannot explain himself because he does not want to let on that he is a communist, a one world government type guy, and if he explained all of his moves then even Joe the Plumber would know exactly who he is.  Obama is not about to do this so he has to pretend that it is WE THE PEOPLE who do not understand him.

I do believe Obama is an informed individual in certain areas of life but he does not have a clue as to how to gain the trust and respect of the American populace.  These things are degrading as more and more of Obama is unveiled.

Hey, crazy Uncle Joe....we know your boss and do not have any use for him nor you.  We know we are in for the times of our lives just trying to hold on to that Republic while American falls apart around our ears.  We understand Obama and we understand all of you progressives who think you want to rule over us like some kind of lowly serfs....we aren't buying.  You and yours are fomenting a civil war and while no one wishes to fight, like we used to say in the Marines, someone has to know how.  When you push, we will push back.  Please do not mistakenly think that you and yours will be permitted to enjoy the fruits of your evil labor....you won't be so  permitted.  There will be no safe havens for progressives anywhere in America.

America, you have gotten a whiff of the condenscending attitude of the elitists like Biden...stinks doesn't it?  Protect yourselves and come together as neighbors to help the least able among you.  Social security recipients, and there are many with many more boomers set to retire soon will not receive an increase because the government says that there is no inflation.  What they didn't tell you is that they changed the formula for calculating inflation and dropped energy and food prices from the equation.  Nice, huh?

Biden thinks we are all too stupid to notice the increases at the grocery store and gas station....but I am sure, if we only understood, it would all be better. 

"And when the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say,Come and see.  And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on had a pair of balances in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine".  Revelations 6:5-6

See there ol' crazy Uncle Joe, you and yours think you are playing us and yet it is the Alpha and the Omega, the one who sees the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning who is playing you.  Just how smart does that make you feel?

Obama, Enemy of the Republic

Congratulations American conservatives for sending 60+ democrats packing on November 2nd past.  It just goes to show that real Americans will not go down without a fight.  Unfortunately, Obama could care less about those democrats who got voted out of office and indeed, Obama could care less if he is no more than a one term president.

Obama is a muslim and does not have the best interests of America at heart.  He is a globalist who feels that his price of admission to the ruling party of the New World Order is the vestiges of a broken down American Republic.  His hencemen include the likes of George Soros, many unthinking liberals and the communist world at large.

November 29th-December 10th (in Cancun) is his next attempt at signing that UN Habitat Agenda treaty like he tried to do last December in Copenhagen.  Remember when the blizzards blocked his way from getting there and another one blocked his way coming back to Washington?  It is on again. 

Obama has already done plenty with his goofy lefty congress with parts of the health care bill, and all of those other gigantic bills congress passed and no one read.  Do you know his 'civilian army, better equipped than our U.S. military is authorized under the health care bill and that FEMA camps are already being prepared to lock some of us up?  Obama may not be entirely in the position he had hoped to be in by this date because too many of his lies have caught up with him and my fellow patriots have awakened.  And yet, he fully intends to complete his mission by force and deception and of course his executive power. 

I honestly believe that Obama, Soros and other such froot loops out there honestly believe that they can reshape our globe into something that they can rule over.  Some of them actually think that global warming is real and that George Bush is the cause of all of it even though real scientists have come out down and shown the climate change liars to be just that....liars!  Soros and Obama know better, they are merely using the climate scam to push their agenda which is not green but rather quite red.  Wouldn't you rather be 'dead than red'?

In a nutshell, people like Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First! would 'reduce world population worldwide to no more than 100 million.  Destroy industrial infrastructure and see wilderness return with a full complement of species worldwide'.  David Brower, Former Executive Director of the Sierra Club offers this: "Child bearing should be a punishable crime against society unless the parents hold a government license.  All potential parents should have to use contraceptive chemicals with the government providing the antidote to those who can obtain government licenses." 

Allow me to add this...."cracker parents who want to have cracker babies need not apply."  The UN Habitat Agenda is designed to force urbanization and woman rule.....have you been paying attention over the course of the past year as the government has declared all water contained in anything bigger than a bird bath belongs to the government?  The UN agenda keeps speaking of a 'sustainable' population which like David Foreman stated tends to be a whole lot smaller than the world currently holds.  Have you paid attention to the fact that the government went after a guy down in Georgia for distributing some of his excess vegetables that he had planted in his garden to his neighbors and friends?

Bottom line here folks is that our muslim president has not conceded a damn thing and will only play the game until he feels like it is okay to unmask and show his true stripes. 

For those dumbocrats who lost their jobs on November 2nd, I can only say tee hee, tee hee, giggle giggle and sorry about your luck but that is what you get for your part in attempting to destroy this once great Republic that is America.  More of your comrades will lose their jobs in 2012 also, particularly some senators who simply were not up for re-election this year.  My home state of Indiana has one such candidate in Richard Lugar who saw nothing wrong with voting in Obama's czardom and in allowing the appointment of activist judges Sotomayor and Kagan to the Supreme Court.

George Soros, the atheist pig who is pissing away his billions in the attempt to destroy America and to create a one world government will be pleasantly surprised to learn that I agree that we do have a one world government coming at us, rather quickly also.  Only problem for poor old George is that when Jesus Christ does set up His rule, George and Barack and their friends will be rubbing shoulders with Satan in that great bottomless pit.

What is your guess as to the date?  Many surmise 2012 because the Mayan calendar supposedly ends at the winter soltice that year.  Others see Nostradmus predictions pointing to the same time line and of course, Christians world wide, Jews and muslims all agree that change is coming.....soon.  Ahmadinejad, the Iranian nutcase is doing his best to bring it on all by himself but we all know that of the hour and the day...only God the Father knows.  All should be accomplished within the next decade.

Watch Israel people....it always has been about God's chosen people.  When they sign that old 7 year revamped Oslo Accord and the land covenanted to the Jew gets separated then the end shall come.  Any real christians reading this should not assume that it is not about Israel because the christian church has taken their place in God's esteem.  Sorry, never read that in my bible and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has no reason to go back on His word. 

People are telling you to prepare for what is coming and I see that as an impossibility but the very best thing you can do is heed the advice of the Apostle Paul found in Romans 10:8-10.  You will be taken care of.
