INFORMATION and NEWS on our re-inhabited Republic for the united states of America…

This is a radio interview with James Timothy Turner, the interim President of the Republic for the united states of America

(This interview runs about 90 minutes)

Our nation has been in a state of dysfunctional turmoil for many many years now; and our problems did not just begin a few years ago.

What we see today has been planned and managed for years, and today we are coming to the end of an era, where one of two things will happen.

  1. Our nation’s economy and the USD will default under this de facto U.S. CORPORATION, and in the midst of the resulting turmoil and civil unrest that will ensue, martial law will be declared; and our constitution and all of our freedoms will be a thing of the past; or
  2. “We the People” will not allow that to happen and we will take back our government and re-inhabit our de jure (lawful) Constitutional Republic.

Whichever one of the two choices that happens will depend on what you and I, and the rest of America does over the next several months.

If we fail to do this folks, then our future and the future of our children and all future generations for that matter, will be forever changed into something that is not very pretty; and in fact it will make what happened in Nazi Germany look like child’s play; and that’s according to what the Bible says will happen in the last days, under the Antichrist Kingdom.

Understand this, that this upcoming “One World Government” that is prophesied about in the Bible, will be the ultimate result of the “New World Order”, which was first announced publically by former President George H.W. Bush back in 1991.

What he did not tell us, however, was that this New World Order would be a totalitarian government, where these bankers and all those whom have joined their elite team, who have been bought and paid for by these people, they will be the masters and everyone else will be their slaves.

If you don’t think that can happen here in our country, then you need to take a look at history; and then understand that not only can it happen, it is already happening right now, right before our eyes… and it will continue to its completion, as planned, unless we stop it!

Do you want more evidence that what I am saying is true, then please just look around you.

No business operates continually in the negative, and expects to stay in business for very long; and no family operates that way either for long; so what is it with U.S. CORP that makes a difference? Has anyone taken a look at our National Debt lately?

The difference is, and the reason for this dysfunction is really by design. You see our nation has been bankrupt ever since the Civil War; and whereas this is something that is not taught in our schools, nevertheless anyone who wants to bother to look and do their own research will find out that this is true. It’s a matter that has been talked about in the Congressional record.

You see, subsequent to our bankruptcy after the Civil War, and on demand from the Rothschild’s International Banking Cartel, our politicians, under the 41st Congress, back in 1871, without the knowledge of the American people and without their approval; and also without the constitutional authority to do so, they collateralize every American man, woman, and child against the national debt of the Corporation.

All of this has been done through adhesion contracts, such as your birth certificate, your social security card, your marriage license, your driver’s license, and the list goes. And by the way, an “adhesion contract” is illegal, for the simple reason that all the benefits go to the other side… which in this case is the Corporation

If you think I’m kidding then for once read the fine print on these contracts that we all have been blindly signing for all these years, and see what it is we are agreeing to.

Take your driver’s license for instance, read the fine print on the bottom and on the back of that piece of paper; and then go and look up the thousands of pages of U.S. Code that is being referenced in the fine print of that contract, only by number; and see what it is that you have signed, and what you have just given away and have agreed to!

I can tell you, you are not going to like it; and if it doesn’t make you angry that this is your own government that is taking such advantage of you, then I don’t know what more to say… just go back to sleep and I’m sorry for disturbing you!

Folks, all of this started with the Act of 1871 that formed the District of Columbia.

The only reason that this was done was to form the UNITED STATES CORPORATION; and mind you, I’ll say it again, this was done without either the knowledge nor the consent of the American people; and also without the Constitutional authority to do so; and subsequent to that, both our U.S. Constitution and our Republic have been in moth balls, ever since.

Take a look at this graph:


Then ask yourself what person or business would ever tolerate these results, and allow this sort of mismanagement and malfeasance to continue for even one year, let alone over 97 years; which is when the Federal Reserve Act was first passed, in 1913.

It was in that year that our country came under the influence and controlled of foreign interests, through this PRIVATELY held corporation called The Federal Reserve Bank, and it is these men, most of whom (70%, 7 out of the 10 who sit on the board of directors) are not even U.S. citizens, but are foreign nationals, and it is these men who have literally been running our economy and our U.S. Dollar right into the ground, from the first day they took over.

Ask yourself for what other reason would we have a president in office, who was never vetted by Congress, and from all the available evidence, that is accumulating against him by the minute, he is not even a U.S. Citizen, let alone is he natural born.

The reason why this has been allowed and has been over looked is because our government is not a government at all, but we are (since 1871) a CORPORATION; and as such our elected officials, even though they are elected to office by the American people, they are nevertheless operating as officers of the corporation; and as such (as is the case with every corporation) their first loyalty is to the stock holders of the corporation, who in this case are these same International Bankers; and so obviously even from what we can see in the graph (above), they never have been operating in our interest at all… or else they never would have allowed this fraud on the American people to continue for so long, or even happen in the first place.

The question is why are they doing this? Are these people crazy, are they out of their minds; or are they operating with another agenda in mind?

I mean let’s be real, there is no person in their right mind, who has any kind of common sense, who would ever do what this UNITED STATES CORPORATION has done constantly, over the last 140 years, where each year they have spent more than they have taken in, to the point we have to date accumulated a 14 Trillion Dollar national debt!

There is one thing about accounting and that is the books have to always balance in the end… and so how pray tell is that going to happen, with a national debt so high. Didn’t anybody ever think about this… duhh?

I mean these same guys are the ones who recently and blindly passed over 700+ Billion Dollars of bail out/stimulus money, and none of our elected officials even bothered to read what was being voted on… but rather they just rubber stamped whatever was put in front of them, leaving it to us to pay the bill. I mean is this the behavior of sane men? I don’t think so, or is there something else that is going on, that isn’t being told… is there another agenda? The answer is, there most certainly is!

This sort of behavior has been going on for a very long time; and our elected officials, our politicians, have always chosen, rather than to have a balanced budget, they have instead chosen rather to pass this financial burden on to future generations; and for many of them they have been more interested in their own financial welfare and political job security; and have sought to curry favor with special interest groups and large corporations, and have gotten rich in the process no less… these full time “Civil Servants”… go figure!

Hey folks, this same malarkey is continuing today; as was evident in the latest State of the Union message that was given last night, where as is always the case anymore, these days, in most all of our political speeches, the people are just told what they want to hear, with no accountability whatsoever; and no one ever bothers to ask the question anymore why none of those promises that are given never happen?

Folks this is OUR country, and if you are happy with the way it is being run, then just keep on doing as you are, and keep your head in the sand; but if you truly want to preserve our liberty for your children and for future generations, then stand up and be counted, and come join the rest of us in taking back our nation. We have already formed our de jure government and we have re-inhabited our Constitutional Republic.

It is already done folks… all that is left is for you to come on board and lend your support!

These guys that are the true power brokers in Washington DC, who are controlling and pulling the strings of this de facto U.S. Corp are operating out of sight and in the dark, just as their father the Devil does.

They are not going to just roll over and give up without a fight; but they can’t fight a whole nation of people; and the only reason they have been able to maintain power for this long is because we didn’t know… well that has finally changed!

You won’t ever again be able to say that you didn’t know.

Besides, we are only talking about something around 5,000 men and women, who are at the head of this oligarchy, who want to control the world.

Please, if you haven’t already sign up today, please do so today, at:
http://republicoftheunitedstates.org/, and last but not least… please pray for our nation; pray for the leadership of the Republic, for our Republic President, Timothy Turner, and for all those who are working so hard behind the scenes, risking their lives to make this possible; and pray also that as much as is possible, that we have a smooth and peaceful, nonviolent, transition of power.

Shalom and may God bless America,

What follows is good advice for all of us in these troubled times… and for life in general!!!

The Shalom (peace) of the Lord comes only one way

What does the word “Shalom” mean?

Most know that the Hebrew word shalom is understood around the world to mean “peace.” However, “peace” is only one small part of the meaning of shalom. “Shalom” is used to both greet people and to bid them farewell, and it means much more than “peace, hello or goodbye”….

According to Strong’s Concordance 7965 Shalom also means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam means to be fully paid.

Yeshua is called Sar shalom, Prince of Peace, which perfectly describes the ministry and personality of our Messiah (Isaiah 9:6).

In other words, the word shalom is a mighty blessing!

Proverbs 18:21 tells us there is life or death in the power of the tongue. Therefore, whenever you employ the word “shalom” you are speaking into someone’s life all the wonderful things that shalom means!

In the meantime:

Numbers 6:24-26: YAHWEH bless you and keep you. YAHWEH make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. YAHWEH lift up His face upon you and give you SHALOM. In the name of SAR SHALOM – the Prince of Peace.

Keep Calm
Keep your Spirit-Life calm and unruffled.”

Keep your Spirit-Life calm and unruffled. Nothing else matters. Leave all to Me. This is your great task, to get calm in My Presence, not to let one ruffled feeling stay for one moment. Years of blessing may be checked in one moment by that.

No matter who frets you or what, yours is the task to stop all else until absolute calm comes. Any block means My Power diverted into other channels.

Pour forth – pour forth – pour forth – I cannot bless a life that does not act as a channel. My Spirit brooks no stagnation, not even in rest. Its Power must flow on. Pass on everything, every blessing. Abide in Me.

See how many you can bless each day. Dwell much in My Presence.

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” – Proverbs 4:23

Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25

It is my prayer that God’s Shalom would be with you ALWAYS…

Consumed by the Love of God; and baptized by the power of His Glory…

Let us each examine ourselves and ask ourselves…

Is our serving Christ, our being Christian, a means to an end, in order that we may be happy in this world in the knowledge that we are saved and have eternal life for ourselves (our fire insurance, if you will); or are we consumed with the love of God for this lost and dying world; are we baptized in the fire of His passion to reach those whom He loves so much, whom Christ died for?

Consider for a moment that no man dies for what he knows to be a lie, and then ask yourself for what reason would Christ, all of the original apostles, and countless saints down through the centuries, lay their lives down for something they knew to be a lie… the answer is they wouldn’t!

Jesus said that the world would know that we are His by the love we have for one another!

Let’s ask ourselves a question?  Would we be willing to say as the Apostle Paul did, when speaking of his brethren the Jews, when he said:

“With Christ as my witness, I speak with utter truthfulness. My conscience and the Holy Spirit confirm it.

My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief for my people, my Jewish brothers and sisters.

I would be willing to be forever cursed—cut off from Christ!—if that would save them. They are the people of Israel, chosen to be God’s adopted children.

God revealed his glory to them. He made covenants with them and gave them his law. He gave them the privilege of worshiping him and receiving his wonderful promises.

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are their ancestors, and Christ himself was an Israelite as far as his human nature is concerned. And he is God, the one who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.” Romans 9: 1-5

Have we come to that place in our Christian walk where the love of God consumes us as it did Paul?

I can only speak for myself, and in all honesty I’m not sure I have come to that place? I think still there is still too much of me and not enough of Christ in me. After all are we not instructed to put on the mind of Christ?

Well, how can we do that, except by the Power of the Holy Spirit, as we surrender our will, our wants and our desires, in favor of what Christ desires to do through us.

For as the scriptures says, is it not the Holy Spirit in us that causes us to will and to do the things that are pleasing in God’s sight; but are we completely surrendered?

Have we truly sold out, or are we just playing religious games, and are we only fooling ourselves?

The Bible makes it very clear that we are no longer to live for ourselves, but that we have been bought with a price, to serve God, and to offer ourselves as living sacrifices.

The Bible also says that we are to be His living epistles in the earth, and we are to function as His ambassadors in the earth; and as such we are no longer representing our interests, our wants, and our desires (and we certainly are not to use the Gospel’s message as a means to an end for our benefit) but rather that Christ may be glorified through us, through our life… as we preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, and go about in order to implement His will in the earth, as it is in Heaven!

Again, how is that to ever happen, except by the power of the Holy Spirit in us, as we surrender our will and our lives to Him?

On the subject of revival, how many of us even know what true revival even looks like, let alone experience it?

We can read about it in our history books, of revivals long past; and I have read and heard about it happening in our time, in other parts of the world; but how many of us in our liberalized American culture have actually experienced the sort of awakening and revival that we can only read and hear about? I dare say, not very many of us… and myself included.

Listen to the following video, and let us all reflect on where we are today, in our culture and in our religion, verses where God wants us to be; and I think you will be moved as I was to press in for more.

So who were the Moravians anyway?

Count Zinzendorf and the Moravians

Written by David Smithers


Throughout the history of the Church, it has always been the most ardent lovers of Jesus who have felt the greatest need for more of His presence. Surely it is with this class of saints that Count Zinzendorf belongs. For Zinzendorf, loving fellowship with Christ was the essential manifestation of the Christian life. Throughout the Count’s life, “His blessed presence” was his all consuming theme. He had chosen from an early age as his life-motto the now famous confession; “I have one passion;it is Jesus, Jesus only.”

A Man of Prayer

Flowing out of Zinzendorf’s passionate love for Christ came a life disciplined in prayer. “Count Zinzendorf had early learned the secret of prevailing prayer. So active had he been in establishing circles for prayer that on leaving the college at Halle, at 16 years of age , he handed the famous professor Franke a list of seven praying societies.”

Also preceding the great Moravian revival of 1727, it was Count Zinzendorf who was used to encourage prayer for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

John Greenfield describes for us the constant prayer that followed the revival of 1727. “Was there ever in the whole of church history such an astonishing prayer meeting as that which beginning in 1727, went on one hundred years?

It was known as the ‘Hourly Intercession.’ And it meant that by relays of brothers and sisters, prayer without ceasing was made to God for all the work and wants of His church.’

The best antidote for a powerless Church is the influence of a praying man. The influence of Count Zinzendorf’s prayer-life did not stop with one small community. It ultimately went on to influence the whole world.

Souls for the Lamb

As Zinzendorf’s passion for Jesus grew, so did his passion for the lost. He became determined to evangelize the world with a handful of saints, equipped only with a burning love for Jesus and the power of prayer.

The Moravian Brotherhood readily received and perpetuated the passion of their leader. A seal was designed to express their newfound missionary zeal. The seal was composed of a lamb on a crimson ground, with the cross of resurrection and a banner of triumph with the motto; “Our Lamb has conquered , let us follow Him.”

The Moravians recognized themselves in debt to the world as the trustees of the gospel. They were taught to embrace a lifestyle of self-denial, sacrifice and prompt obedience. They followed the call of the Lamb to go anywhere and with an emphasis upon the worst and hardest places as having the first claim.

No soldiers of the cross have ever been bolder as pioneers, more patient or persistent in difficulties, more heroic in suffering, or more entirely devoted to Christ and the souls of men than the Moravian Brother-hood.

Motivation for World Missions

The Moravians beautifully explain their motivation for missions in the following 1791 evangelical report.

“The simple motive of the brethren for sending missionaries to distant nations was and is an ardent desire to promote the salvation of their fellow men, by making known to them the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.

It grieved them to hear of so many thousands and millions of the human race sitting in darkness and groaning beneath the yoke of sin and the tyranny of Satan; and remembering the glorious promises given in the Word of God, that the heathen also should be the reward of the sufferings and death of Jesus; and considering His commandment to His followers, to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, they were filled with confident hopes that if they went forth in obedience unto, and believing in His word, their labor would not be in vain in the Lord.

They were not dismayed in reflecting on the smallness of their means and abilities, and that they hardly knew their way to the heathen whose salvation they so ardently longed for, nor by the prospect of enduring hardships of every kind and even perhaps the loss of their lives in the attempt.

Yet their love to their Savior and their fellow sinners for whom He shed His blood, far outweighed all these considerations. They went forth in the strength of their God and He has wrought wonders in their behalf.”

The Moravians had learned that the secret of loving the souls of men was found in loving the Savior of men.

On October 8,1732, a Dutch ship left the Copenhagen harbor bound for the Danish West Indies. On board were the two first Moravian missionaries; John Leonard Dober, a potter, and David Nitschman, a carpenter.

Both were skilled speakers and ready to sell themselves into slavery to reach the slaves of the West Indies. As the ship slipped away, they lifted up a cry that would one day become the rallying call for all Moravian missionaries, “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering.” The Moravian’s passion for souls was surpassed only by their passion for the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

They Had All Things In Common

Another vision of Count Zinzendorf’s was that of the restoration of Apostolic community. He labored to establish a community of saints that loved and supported one another through prayer, encouragement and accountability.

To a great extent Zinzendorf’s vision became a reality in the small village of Herrnhut. A deep sense of community was maintained through small groups based on common needs and interests, original and unifying hymns and continual prayer meetings.

In 1738 John Wesley visited “this happy place” and was so impressed that he commented in his journal “I would gladly have spent my life here . . . Oh, when shall this Christianity cover the earth as water covers the sea?”

He Had No Other Happiness But To Be Near Him

By no means was Count Zinzendorf’s life flawless, but one cannot help but be moved by his consuming passion and pre-occupation with the person of Jesus Christ.

A glimpse of his burning love for Jesus can be caught in the following letter.

“Our method of proclaiming salvation is this: to point out to every heart the loving Lamb, who died for us, and although He was the Son of God, offered Himself for our sins … by the preaching of His blood, and of His love unto death, even the death of the cross, never, either in discourse or in argument, to digress even for a quarter of an hour from the loving Lamb: to name no virtue except in Him, and from Him and on His account,-to preach no commandment except faith in Him; no other justification but that He atoned for us; no other sanctification but the privilege to sin no more; no other happiness but to be near Him, to think of Him and do His pleasure; no other self denial but to be deprived of Him and His blessings; no other calamity but to displease Him; no other life but in Him.”

The source of Count Zinzendorf’s success was bound up in his passion for JESUS CHRIST! Likewise the source of much of the modern Church’s failure lies in her half-hearted devotion for the Lover of their souls.

Today, Jesus still cries out to us; “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, . . . (Rev. 2:4-5)

The King is Coming… though in truth He never left!

His name in Hebrew is Yeshua (Jesusmeaning Saviour)… His title is Ha’Mashiach (meaning literally Anointed One—or Messiah)

And the Word says:

For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.

And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

The King is Coming… though in truth He never left!  

He is ever present with all those who love Him and put their trust in Him; and always His arms are outstretched to embrace all those who have yet to meet Him, for He loves all and is not a respecter of persons!

He supports ALL those who are in need, who place their faith in Him… the poor, the widow and the orphan are especially in His care.

He is nigh unto all who are of a broken heart; and He saveth all those who are of a contrite spirit.

And just as is depicted in the above video, His arm reaches even into the battle field, as truly, “there are no real atheists in fox holes and on death beds;” for there comes a time in every individual’s life, where the need to reach beyond himself or herself becomes real.

God is always true to His Word and His promise is always NEVER to leave us nor forsake us!!!!

All Glory, Honor, and Praise be unto His name!

God is so good, and He is good all the time!

This night I saw a miracle, as God answered the prayers of a wonderful couple at my church, who had been praying for years for their daughter and son in law.

Well this evening saw their prayers answered, it was the end of a miracle process that actually began over a week ago, on Saturday last, when God first began dealing with the daughter; and tonight God did what only He can do best, as He dealt with the son in law as well.

God always does it best, and I’ve seen it happen time and time again, as He recycles us all, even when we are at our worst and the world has given up on us… He never gives up on us!

So whatever you are facing today, that seems so impossible, and has you feeling like all hope is lost… why not pause a moment and turn your hearts towards the one who made you, who loves you; and who can meet you wherever you are and in whatever situation you might be facing… for He is always only a prayer away?

Shalom,

Skip Barland

Enough is enough, the handwriting is already on the wall… and we who are Christians must take back our nation!!!

The following article should upset you to no end, at least for all of us who are believers, who call ourselves Christian!

LAW OF THE LAND

For real! U.S. court says Christian cross is unconstitutional …
Ninth Circuit ignores Supreme precedent in Mojave case

Mt. Soledad memorial cross

A three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has decided a memorial cross on federal land on Mt. Soledad, Calif., violates the U.S. Constitution.

In a 3-0 ruling in the Jewish War Veterans v. City of San Diego case, the panel decided that the 29-foot concrete cross, which has stood for 57 years, constitutes a government endorsement of religion and therefore violates the First Amendment’s establishment clause.

“The question, then, is whether the entirety of the Mount Soledad Memorial, when understood against the background of its particular history and setting, projects a government endorsement of Christianity. We conclude it does,” wrote Circuit Judge M. Margaret McKeown, a Clinton appointee.

“The decision represents a judicial slap in the face to the countless military veterans honored by this memorial,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, which filed an amicus brief in the case on behalf of 25 members of Congress. “This flawed decision not only strikes at the heart of honoring our military veterans, it reaches a faulty conclusion that this iconic memorial – part of the historic landscape of San Diego – is unconstitutional. We believe the appeals court got this decision wrong and we look forward to the case going to the Supreme Court where we’re confident this decision will be overturned.”

Why are crosses being ruled unconstitutional? Read America’s War on Christianity: In God We Trust – autographed!

“Unfortunately, the decision does not surprise me based on the philosophical beliefs and records of the judges on the panel. The decision was more likely than not,” said Alliance Defense Fund Senior Counsel Joe Infranco. ADF filed an amicus brief in the case on behalf of the American Legion.

“The panel has an extreme view of the establishment clause that amounts to hostility to religion,” Infranco explained. “The Constitution requires that religious views and expressions be accommodated. There’s a kind of disconnect in the way certain judges look at the establishment clause, and it becomes a vehicle for hostility to religious expression.

“If the case had come up in a different federal circuit, there likely would have been a different result,” said Infranco. The Ninth Circuit, infamous for its activist decisions, is the most-reversed of America’s circuit courts.

“The veterans are outraged over these cases. All the plaintiffs do is find a few individuals who claim to be offended by that cross at the site, and the premise of this lawsuit is the offense of a few individuals trumps the way veterans choose to honor fallen veterans. Veterans should be allowed to honor heroes, many of whom gave their lives for this nation, in the manner they choose,” Infranco added.

“Certainly we’re upset with the decision,” confirmed Joe March, national director of public relations for the American Legion, the nation’s largest veterans organization. “We believe it will finally get corrected once and for all when it gets to the Supreme Court. We had filed an amicus curiae and we intend to do so once again. When the government appeals to the Supreme Court, the American Legion will be there again. It’s the right thing to do.”

The American Legion has already called officially on Attorney General Eric Holder to appeal the case, which was argued by Justice Department attorneys on behalf of the Department of Defense.

“I am asking Attorney General Holder to appeal this regrettable decision to the Supreme Court,” said Jimmie L. Foster, national commander of the American Legion, in a news release. “The sanctity of this cross is about the right to honor our nation’s veterans in a manner which the overwhelming majority supports. The American Legion strongly believes the public has a right to protect its memorials.”

The ACLU, which brought the suit on behalf of the Jewish War Veterans, did not return a request for comment.

Infranco accused the Ninth Circuit judges of ignoring the precedent set by the Supreme Court in a similar case involving a memorial cross erected by the Veterans of Foreign Wars in the Mojave National Preserve.

“I think their decision was inconsistent with the Mojave decision. The Mojave decision [Salazar v. Buono] did not rule directly on the cross because there was another issue that resolved the case more easily, but Justice Kennedy, who wrote the majority decision, left a hint the size of a barn door that crosses that memorialize the dead … do not violate the Constitution. In my view the court failed to take the very clear hint from the Supreme Court. We’re hoping the Supreme Court will agree to hear this case and reverse this awful decision.”

The first cross was erected on Mt. Soledad in 1913, and the large concrete cross was erected in 1954 to replace a cross blown down by heavy winds in 1952. According to the Ninth Circuit decision, the 1954 cross was dedicated, “as a reminder of God’s promise to man of everlasting life and of those persons who gave their lives for our freedom.”

“Litigation over the cross began in 1989. Veterans responded in the 1990s by adding plaques, bollards and flags intended to honor veterans, and by holding regular memorial services at the site.

This is but another victory for Satan’s camp, that is but a long line of victories that have occurred over the last 100 or more years, where Christians have reacted to the enemy’s advancements by retreating, while all the while our constitutional rights have been compromised and our history as a Christian nation rewritten; and the only response most Christians have had is to back up in retreat, and drawing another line in the sand.

Certainly we have not been doing as our Lord has commanded us to do, when He said for us to charge the gates of hell, but on the contrary we’ve been running away!

It is about time that we start putting Satan and his troops on notice, and put them on the defensive for a change… don’t you think?

Especially since he has already been defeated at Calvary by our Lord, Yeshua (Jesus)!

There is nothing more that our Lord must do in order to win us our victory, for His job has long ago been finished, as He defeated Satan at the cross!

It is for us to take up our individual crosses (which is but a symbol of our consecration and death) and follow the example of Yeshua (Jesus) as he laid it down for us in His Word, particularly in the Book of Acts!

Certainly it is not this modern day “seeker friendly church mentality,” with its Madison Avenue styled marketing techniques that will defeat the enemy and win our country and our world for Christ; but it’s only in the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven that has the power to do that; but ONLY when it is delivered with all signs and wonders, as we read happened in the first century church, in the Book of Acts.

Make no mistake, but that this is the ONLY thing that scares the enemy… when he sees that we as the church are moving out in faith, in God’s power, and in Jesus name!

God has not changed, and He is the same yesterday, today, and forever… but unfortunately it is “WE” in the church who have changed!

We are no longer following God’s instructions, as Messiah Jesus said to do, and as He led by example in His life and ministry on the earth; and what’s worst, some have even said that the miracles and signs and wonders that we read about in the Bible, that they all died out with the death of the last of the 12 Apostles, centuries ago; but how can that be when the job is not done?!!!

If they needed the power of God to accomplish the work in the first century church, then certainly we need it today!

We are no longer charging the gates of hell anymore, at least not here in America; but rather we have been in retreat for a very long time; so long in fact that God is today sending missionaries back to us, from those third world countries that we have sown seed in for years, to call Christians in our country to repentance.

Too long have we been running from the enemy, in retreat, and we have allowed him to take too much of our ground, here in our country!

The problem is today our nation and we as Christians have our backs up against the wall, and we have no further space to retreat to.

Whether our nation is to survive very long after this generation, as a free people, will depend on what we as Believers do today!

This is not only important for our sakes, that we act, but it’s important for the sake of our children and for all future generations!

It is imperative that we not follow the usual response of retreating in these days; but that we actually start resisting this evil, by resisting the Devil, and that we start retaking the lost ground, and that we take back our nation, by re-inhabiting our Constitutional Republic!

The enemy over the years has patiently laid the ground work for what we see happening today in our society, and this leaven has over the years been propagated and spread through our public schools, and through our media and culture.

This “political correctness” doctrine has been forced down our throats by politicians, who in spite of their oath to preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution they have and are instead eroding away our Constitutional rights… and this is coming right from the White House and from our Congress!

Being that this deception has literally been going on now for over 140 years, in our country alone, there is today a very strong spirit of deception, as the enemy has gained influence and control over many of our politicians, and our judges; as he has gained control of much of the media and our public education system; and it is through this same false and evil doctrine of political correctness that this has happened, and continues to happen.

That’s not the worst of it, however, because the enemy has also slowly but surely lulled many in our society to sleep, as there is a very strong spiritual malaise that has settled upon our culture and our society, that has been spawned directly from the pit of hell, and it has affected many of our brothers and sisters, who call themselves Christians, but who are nevertheless fast asleep, as Rome burns.

What America needs more than anything right now is a Spiritual Awakening and Revival!

There is a glimmer of light and all is not lost, not by a long shot, as there are  Christians today, all across our land (in all 50 states, now called re-inhabited republics) who have banned together to do exactly as our Declaration of Independence declares that we have the right to do:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

These men and women are today doing exactly as our forefather’s once did against mother England, in winning our liberty, and in forming our Constitutional Republic, that only lasted for only a short while; and was stolen from us through the Act of 1871, that saw the formation of the District of Columbia; and the formation of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION (click on the link to learn about our history).

For information on how you can join this ongoing effort, already in progress, where we have already re-inhabited our Constitutional Republic; and as the word is spreading across the land, and as more people are learning and becoming aware, that not only has our Constitutional Republic been restored; but we are also once again becoming “One Nation Under God.”

Starting the New Year out right… with God!


In Rembrandt’s rendition of the Prodigal Son, the son returns home and receives forgiveness and reconciliation back into his father’s family.


What is being alluded to in the above picture illustrates exactly what is in the heart of God towards this lost world, who are the offspring of God, whom He loves with an everlasting love; which includes all of us who are created in God’s image and after His likeness, and who are also of the seed of Adam.

What I am about to explain here (according to what the Bible says), is without a doubt the most important message that we will ever hear, in our lifetime; and the decision we each make based on our understanding of this message, will in fact determine where we spend eternity.

The choice (according to the account of the Bible), is either we follow God’s road map and plan for reconciliation, offered through the message of the Gospel and our faith in Yeshua (Jesus), or we are destined to continue this estrangement and separation from God for all eternity!

What we find in the Tanakh (the Old Testament, but also including the New Testament) is but a love letter where God tells the long history behind the story of ALL He has had to do, from the beginning, since the advent of original sin, in order to reconcile His lost family back unto Himself.

Here is where it all started:

As you saw in the above video, God gave a commandment to Adam (and mind you this was before Eve was created), which was in fact a test of Adam’s faithfulness and his willingness to have faith in (meaning to trust) God, with all his heart, soul and strength, to obey and follow God, by following God’s instructions.

Genesis 2:8-17

Life in God’s Garden
8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food.

The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel;[a] it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

It is my belief that the reason why God did this in this way, was because He did not want His children to be like little mechanical tomattons (robots), who had no choice, and that’s why He gave man free will; because He wanted a people who would of their own volition and free will choose to follow their Creator—God by faith, out of love, and not out of compulsion.

It was Saint Augustine, I believe, who once said that It was impossible to know God and not love Him, and it was equally impossible for one to love God and not want to serve Him.”

The problem started when our original parents (Adam and Eve) were led astray, and disobeyed God’s command.

As it happened, the Serpent (the Devil) approached Eve, and then tempted her to disobeyed God’s command to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

This was the beginning of man’s separation and estrangement from God, that has continued until the present day; but as we read further in the Bible we also learn that God in His foreknowledge already knew that this would happen, and had already made provision for our sin of disobedience, and had established a way home, that we can be reconciled back into relationship and back into His family; and that would happen through the Seed of the Woman, as the Bible puts it:

Genesis 3:4-15

4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”

12 Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”

13 And the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14 So the LORD God said to the serpent:
” Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.

15
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;

He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

But as you know, women don’t have seeds, they have eggs, and the word “Seed” is given in the singular, and not the plural; so we can know from this that God is talking about a specific Seed.

What Seed is God talking about and what is the importance of that Seed?

This Seed of which God is speaking of here, that He said would be born of a virgin is obviously something unusual, that would be a sign to all, that would happen sometime in the future; and this sign would be God’s remedy for man’s estrangement from heaven, in that a virgin would give birth to the Messiah, and as promised in Genesis that Seed of the woman (the Messiah) would crush Satan’s head.

Our entire calendar is established around the advent of this glorious event, of Messiah coming into the world, with B.C. meaning “Before Christ,” and A.D. (Anno Domini) meaning “in the year of the Lord.”

However owed to a misunderstanding and mistake in the Gregorian calender, it was first believed that Christ was born in 4 B.C.; but later it was determined that He was born in 2 B.C.

What year was Yeshua born?

The year of Jesus’ birth is broadly accepted as 4 BC, primarily from erroneous conclusions derived from Josephus’ recording of an eclipse, assumed to be on March 13, 4 BC, “shortly before Herod died.”

There are a number of problems with this in addition to the fact that it was more likely the eclipse occurred on December 29, 1 B.C.

Considerable time elapsed between Jesus’ birth and Herod’s death since the family fled to Egypt to escape Herod’s edict and they didn’t return until after Herod’s death.

Furthermore, Herod died on January 14, 1 BC. Tertullian (born about 160 AD) stated that Augustus began to rule 41 years before the birth of Jesus and died 15 years after that event.

Augustus died on August 19, 14 AD, placing Jesus’ birth at 2 BC.

Tertullian also notes that Jesus was born 28 years after the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC, which is consistent with a date of 2 BC.

Irenaeus, born about a century after Jesus, also notes that the Lord was born in the 41st year of the reign of Augustus. Since Augustus began his reign in the autumn of 43 BC, this also appears to substantiate the birth in 2 BC.

Eusebius (264-340 AD), the “Father of Church History,” ascribes it to the 42nd year of the reign of Augustus and the 28th from the subjection of Egypt on the death of Anthony and Cleopatra.

The 42nd year of Augustus ran from the autumn of 2 BC to the autumn of 1 BC. The subjugation of Egypt into the Roman Empire occurred in the autumn of 30 BC.

The 28th year extended from the autumn of 3 BC to the autumn of 2 BC. The only date that would meet both of these constraints would be the autumn of 2 BC.

Another approach in determining the date of Jesus’ birth is from information about John the Baptist.

Elisabeth, John’s mother, was a cousin of Mary and the wife of a priest named Zacharias who was of the “course” of Abijah (Priests were divided into 24 courses and each course officiated in the Temple for one week, from Sabbath to Sabbath).

When the Temple was destroyed by Titus on August 5, 70 AD, the first course of priests had just taken office. Since the course of Abijah was the eighth course, we can track backwards and determine that Zacharias would have ended his duties on July 13, 3 BC.

If the birth of John took place 280 days later, it would have been on April 19-20, 2 BC (precisely on Passover of that year).

John began his ministry in the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar. The minimum age for the ministry was 30. As Augustus died on August 19, 14 AD, that was the accession year for Tiberius.

If John was born on April 19-20, 2 BC, his 30th birthday would have been April 19-20, 29 AD, or the 15th year of Tiberius.

This seems to confirm the 2 BC date and, since John was five months older, this also confirms the autumn birth date for Jesus.

Also it is the view of many Bible scholars, as I pointed out on a previous blog, that Yeshua was most certainly not born on December 25th; and for an explanation of why that view is taken, as well as a history behind the December 25th date, I am including the following video:

Well back to my original subject, what I am attempting to do here is explain from the Bible, from the beginning (as we read in the book of Genesis), first how the separation between God and man began; and then show God’s only remedy for this problem, which is through faith in Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus—Saviour, the Christ—Messiah or Anointed One).

Upon study of the Scriptures, it becomes apparent that God has given to Adam and to his descendants what amounts to a six thousand year lease in the earth, starting with the creation of Adam and concluding just before Christ returns to set up His Kingdom in the earth (in Jerusalem) and there to rein for a thousand years (a period called in the Bible the millennium); and it is the period just before this millennial rein of Christ in the earth begins that concludes Adam’s lease, where he and his descendants were to rule and exercise dominion in the earth.

We also learn from Scripture that the Serpent (the Devil, who is Satan) usurped that dominion for himself, in the earth for a time, when he tempted Eve in the garden, and subsequently through Eve Adam was also lead in this rebellion against God’s authority, when they both partook of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

On a side note we are told in the New Testament (1 Timothy 2:14) that Adam was not deceived in what happened; and as I have already pointed out (above) when the command was given by God not to eat of that one certain fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, Eve wasn’t even created yet.

So obviously Eve’s misunderstanding of what the commandment said, in that she had added to it and said they were not allowed to eat from it or touch it (which was not in the commandment) was most likely owed to the fact that Adam had not properly instructed her.

The reason I believe for Adam’s acquiescence in partaking of the forbidden fruit, along with his wife, was because of his great love for Eve, and him not wanting to face a future without her.

Likewise, in contrast, that is also Messiah’s motivation (and also the Father’s) for redeeming us and providing a path of reconciliation for all who would accept, by faith, Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

Just as is pointed out in John 3:16:

The Bible makes it clear that what sends people to an eternity without God is NOT their sins, for ALL of us have sinned and have missed God’s standards and have broken His laws; and the Bible even says if we have broken the least of them, we have broken them all.

There is only one SIN (singular) that sends men and women to an eternity without God, and it’s not our sins (plural); but it is only one SIN that does this, and it is the sin of unbelief, in refusing to accept by faith the forgiveness offered to us for all our trespasses and sins through Yeshua’s death and sacrifice on Calvary’s cross.

In a nutshell this is the Gospel’s message and it is our ONLY road home:

Romans 5

1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.

3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

Adam and Christ Contrasted

12 When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.

13 Yes, people sinned even before the law was given. But it was not counted as sin because there was not yet any law to break.

14 Still, everyone died—from the time of Adam to the time of Moses—even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did.

Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. 15 But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift.

For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.

16 And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins.

17 For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.

18 Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. 19 Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.

20 God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. 21 So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This is the message of the Gospel, and what we do with it, what we do with Yeshua, who is the Christ—Messiah, will determine where we each will spend eternity?

By receiving Yeshua’s sacrifice on Calvary’s cross by faith, for our sins, the penalty that God promised of death (meaning spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God) was paid in full; because He (Yeshua) who knew no sin became sin in our place, in order that His sacrifice on Calvary’s cross would fulfill the requirement of the law, setting all free who put their faith in Him… and the Gospel message is as simple as that!

The Bible tell us that by our placing our trust and faith in the propitious work of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus, the Christ — meaning Messiah) on Calvary’s cross, His righteousness is then imputed to us, and our debt to God is marked paid in full.

Just the same as the High Priest, all throughout the Tanakh, and particularly in the Books of Moses, offered up the blood of animal sacrifices, which only provided a temporary coverning for the High Priest’s sins, and also for the people for only a year; and so it had to be repeated every year, on Yon Kipper (the Day of Atonement).

All of that was to lead the covenant children of God, who followed under the Abrahamic Covenant, to their Messiah; whose sacrifice would end the need for animal sacrifices forever.

For more information on how to be included in God’s reconciled family, please see the following video:


I want to make it clear that as the Bible says it NOT God’s will that any man or woman go out into eternity unsaved, without a Saviour!

The Bible says that the wages of sin (which is unbelief and refusal of salvation offered through the sacrifice of God’s only begotten Son) is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, offered ONLY through Jesus Christ, our Lord!

The Bible also says that there is ONLY one name under heaven whereby man can be saved, and that is through Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ); and it is my hope and prayer for everyone who is reading this, that if you haven’t already done so, that you too will make Jesus Lord and Saviour of your life, because I want to see you heaven!!!

Shalom,
