[VIDEO] Let us start taking responsibility for what’s wrong with both our nation and our personal lives…

There is a good message in this video…

Dave Ramsey’s EPIC Rant: Politicians Aren’t Jesus

This message is all about our getting ourselves out of this victim mentality!

Our culture and our pseudo-watered-down compromised faith has turned us, as individuals and as a nation, into a bunch of wimps, that are told what to think and how to think it.

Do you not see that you are being played as a fools?

Here we are once again, going through this political election cycle, every four years, looking for some compromised lying politician, instead of ourselves and our faith in Jesus Christ, to fix everything that’s wrong in our culture and in our lives?

Someone once said that the definition of insanity is when people do the same things the same way, over and over again, and yet each time are expecting different results.

It’s not gonna happen folks, not until we take responsibility, ourselves, for what’s wrong with our nation and for what’s wrong in our personal lives.

To begin with, what’s wrong with our culture and what’s wrong with our personal lives is not going to change until we change them; and that first is going to require that we are honest with ourselves, and that we are honest with God.

Now the world may not understand this or believe it, but as Christians we understand that the heavens above and this entire world, and everything in it, was created, including our very lives, through the person of Jesus – the Christ (Messiah / Emmanuel – God with us)!

Colossians 1:16

For in Him (Jesus) ALL things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.

It is to God and to God alone that we are responsible, and as the Bible tells us, our lives are no longer are own – but that through the propitious sacrifice of Jesus, on Calvary’s cross – that we ALL have been bought with a price.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

The road back home, into our proper relationship with our Creator, starts with the first step, in that we as individuals and also as a nation, humble ourselves before God and pray, that we each turn from our wicked ways and we seek God’s face, as per second Chronicles 7:14.

So what do you say, how about if we get real for a change, and we make the difference, and not look to some man to do it for us?

Don’t let the hassles and conflicts of life embitter you…

image

This is so true…

Bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, all of these are choices that we make, that if we allow them to take their course, they will make our lives miserable.

We all need to learn to let go and let God, in every area of our life!

And this is particularly true when it comes to the subject of forgiveness.

I don’t care what the offensive is, anytime anyone starts to go down the path of unforgiveness, bitterness and anger, they are ONLY hurting themselves!

Give ALL your burdens over to God and trust Him to take them.

We are each instructed to put on the mind of Christ (Php 2:5); and in ALL of our affairs, here on earth, with Gods help and the Holy Spirit living inside of us, we are to exhibit the following attributes, as listed in Galatians 5:22-23:

Love – “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16). Through Jesus Christ, our greatest goal is to do all things in love. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

Joy – “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).

Peace – “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).

Longsuffering (patience) — We are “strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness” (Colossians 1:11). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Gentleness (kindness) — We should live “in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left” (2 Corinthians 6:6-7).

Goodness – “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power” (2 Thessalonians 1:11). “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth” (Ephesians 5:9).

Faith (faithfulness) – “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth” (Isaiah 25:1). “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” (Ephesians 3:16-17).

Meekness – “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted” (Galatians 6:1). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Temperance (self-control) – “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love” (2 Peter 1:5-7).

Being healed and set free from the sins of our past…

13feature_victor_marx__restored_1111_515465229

“People will admire you for your success, but they will relate to you because of your pain.”

Anyone who has been abused, emotionally, sexually or physically, as a child, will relate to this video and this testimony…

The Victor Marx Story – When Impossible Is The Only Way Out

“Growing up, I suffered abuse.

I was left in a cooler to die at 5 years old. I was molested. I was tortured by a sadistic stepfather. His methods included suffocating, electrocution, drowning, sleep deprivation and extreme physical pain.

One time he held me under water, and I awoke to him breathing in my mouth to resuscitate me. He looked at me and said, ‘Boy, I am the one who gives you life—don’t ever forget it.’

I started drugs in sixth grade. I attended 14 schools, lived in 17 houses. My grandfather killed his wife and shot himself in public. My mom was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. By the time I was in eighth grade she had married four men.

I never got help as a kid; I was taught to just move forward.

At 18, I joined the Marines to get away. While in the corps I received a letter from my biological dad. He said, I know I was never there for you as a father, and I know you think I am crazy—he’d spent time in a mental hospital for homicidal tendencies—but he said, I’m crazy for Jesus Christ.

The letter was very compelling. I flew to visit him. He invited me to go to church, and I heard a very simple gospel message that changed my life .”

In adulthood, Victor Marx was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and mental illness; but, instead of remaining a victim, chained to his horrible past, he embraced new life and hope through Jesus Christ.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, as an adult, unless you have been healed and delivered – by the Lord Jesus Christ – from your past childhood traumas, then that traumatized child is still there, very much alive, living inside of you today.

All those emotional scars, from your past, are still there and when under pressure they will manifest and erupt in your life through unforgiveness, bitterness and fear, which become footholds and strongholds of the enemy (Satan) in your life (Eph 4:26-27), in order that he might further torment you and make your life miserable.

Whether you will admit it or recognize it, all of these negative emotions are still affecting all of your horizontal relationships, with those around you, including your family; and it will remain that way until you are willing to confront all those demons and the fears from your past, acknowledge them and repent before the Lord, and then be set free.

You see what happens today, as an adult, when somebody touches those areas of your life that are still sensitive, there is inveritably an emotional eruption and outburst of anger, and it is that eruption of anger and all the past history that caused it, that God, if you let Him, will heal you of.

And the way you can know that you are free is the same way that you know when you have been healed from an old physical wound.

Many of us today are carrying in our bodies scars from injuries that we have received in the past, that were very painful when they happened, but today all we have is that scar; and even though the memory traces are still there, there is no longer any pain associated with it.

Likewise when you can see your past in that same way, and have someone touch those emotional triggers and find there is no longer any pain associated with them, it is then and only then that you will know that you are healed.

The first step is to be honest with yourself and then to be honest with God.

We have to be willing to admit that we have a problem and that we can’t heal ourselves.

We then have to be willing to admit and confess our faults, and
then through repentance, which means to change the way we think, we allow the Holy Spirit to come in through the washing of God’s Word and rewrite the corrupt programming of our past.

The truth is Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who has the power to change your life and make all things new!

We have been bought with a price…

image

We all, as Christians, will be held responsible for how we used the talents that God has given to us…

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Glorify God in Body and Spirit
19 Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Use the talents God has given you

Audio link:

Use It,” by Bishop Noel Jones…: http://subspla.sh/7f20342]

If you are alive, then know that God has a plan and a purpose for your life (Jer 29:11).

By virtue of the fact that we are alive and have been placed on this earth, by God, it then follows that we each have been given certain gifts and talents.

As we read in Genesis, in the beginning God the Father spoke everything into existence, by the Word of His mouth (who is Jesus), and when it says that He created Adam, it says that “the LORD God formed Adam from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul” (Gen 2:7).

God has placed a seed inside of every life form and plant that He made, so that it may produce after its kind.

He also has placed a seed inside of man, and along with that He has placed in man the ability that he might use his God given gifts and talents, so that man, having been made in the image and likeness of God, that we might also be a creative force in the earth.

None of us are here to take up space, and this is where it all starts.

First of all, it is up to each one of us to first obey the Gospel’s message, receive forgiveness for our sins and be reconciled back into God’s family.

Having now made peace with God, by accepting the propitious sacrifice of His only begotten Son – Jesus – on Calvary’s cross (John 3:16), we are now what the Bible calls born-again (John 3:3).

This means that each of us, through Jesus’ sacrifice and our acceptance of that sacrifice by faith, we are now given access and relationship with the one who is both the Source and Author of our lives.

It also mean that after having received Jesus as our Savior, we must now make Him Lord over our life, as He cannot be our Savior without also being our Lord.

It is God’s purpose and design in all of this that we each be conformed into the image of His Son (Rom 8:29); and that we be about our Father’s business, using our gifts and talents to spread the Gospel and make disciples of all nations.

I agree…

As a society we need to quit judging people based on the color of their skin and start judging them by the color of their character!

Discrimination based on race, color or creed is always wrong; and that’s particularly true and even stupid when you are basing it on the amount of pigmentation a person has in their skin. This is something none of us have any control over.

The Bible tells us that God created man from the dust of the earth, and coincidentally enough, wouldn’t you know that as many colors of dirt that we find in the earth, there is an equal number of skin colors.

Thank God we have diversity and we’re not all cookie-cutter images of one another!

As Christians there are no barriers at all, as we are ALL of one blood and are one in Christ!

BREAKING: Top US Admiral Fired For Questioning Obama’s Purchase Of Mansion In Dubai…

image

Get a load of this, and see what our “Trader-in- Chief” president is doing now…

Ask yourself where did all this newfound wealth come from?

To find the answer to that question all you have to do is follow the money.

Article:

Top US Admiral Fired For Questioning Obama’s Purchase Of Mansion In Dubai

January 10 2016

A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that one of the United States Navy’s top commanders was relieved of his command a few hours ago after he sent out an “email/posting” revealing that President Barack Obama was in the process of purchasing a multi-million dollar seaside luxury villa in the United Arab Emirates city (UAE) of Dubai.

According to this report, the Commander of the US Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 15, Rear Admiral Rick Williams, posted a “pointed” query on 8 January [since deleted] to the US Naval Institute’s “Readiness Kill Chain” “recipients/responders” list as to why Navy security and intelligence personal had been dispatched from Naval Support Facility Thurmont (aka Camp David) to Dubai on what he termed an “Obama house hunting mission”.

Within 18 hours of Admiral Williams posting this query, this report continues, the US Navy’s Third Fleet Commander, Vice Admiral Nora Tyson   (GEN DUNFORD  – please FIRE this TRAITOR and hang her for TREASON), acting on direct orders from her Commander-In-Chief, ‘president’ Barack Obama (ANOTHER TRAITOR), fired Admiral Williams, stating her action was “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command” because of “allegations of his misuse of government computer equipment”.

When further questioned by Russian Today journalists via email to provide more details about Admiral Williams firing, this report notes, the Pentagon failed to reply—but then began releasing “anonymous” stories to the US press that Admiral Williams had been viewing pornography on his computer.  (And they still think Americans are so stupid that we haven’t figured out yet their standard modus operandi – hahahahah.  No wonder China and Russia are so far advanced with their military weaponry, etc. The U.S.A. criminal NATO / UN cabal military, under direction of the aliens and United Nations, is still practicing with their childhood plastic tanks and plastic ships in their bath tubs. )

(The normal customary U.S.A. criminal cabal ‘reasons’ to ‘fire’ a top level military officer or ‘government’ employee:  (1) pornography, and (2) illicit sexual affairs, neither of which would have to be true.  The ‘affair’ was one of the major charges selected when Petraus was fired. See: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/15/silencing-general-petraeus.html )

To such an absurd claim that Admiral Williams (or any US Navy officer or seaman in fact) could view pornography on their computers, SVR analysts in this report note, is an impossibility due to the US Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), which not only blocks such sites, but also requires each single user to log in with their own unique password and username and whose records are meticulously kept and reviewed on a daily basis (thanks to Edward Snowden)—and which one would logically think one of the highest ranking officers in the US Navy would surely be aware of.

As to the “Obama house hunting mission,” Admiral Williams was making his query about it before being fired, this report continues, SVR intelligence “assests” in the UAE identified it as being a luxury seaside villa located in the Palm Jumeirah development of Dubai being offered for sale at the price of $4.9 million (18 million United Arab Emirates Dirham), and which a deposit on it was made this past week by the Washington D.C. based global public affairs company Podesta Group.

Important to note about the Podesta Group, this report notes, is that its leader is Tony Podesta who, aside from being one of the most powerful oligarchs in the US, is a close personal friend of Obama, too. (Podesta’s helping Obama exhibits poor decision making and choices. The day will come when he will regret his decision to help Obama.)

Equally important to note about the Podesta Group’s purchasing of this Dubai luxury seaside mansion for Obama, this report says, is that he is being legally represented in this purchase by the equally powerful Washington D.C. based global law firm DLA Piper—both of whom have long been identified as being the nexus power brokers behind Saudi Arabia’s massive multi-million dollar “PR machine” operating behind the scenes corrupting the entire United States political establishment.

Too, if Saudi Arabia itself is behind the purchase of this luxury seaside villa in Dubai for Obama, this report doesn’t state—but to the cost of it being too high after it cost the job of one of America’s top Naval Commanders is beyond dispute.

(America does NOT want bozo, but America DOES want the Admiral.) FIRE bozo and REHIRE the Admiral.)

The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – WASHINGTON D.C. CORPORATION, together with the International Bankster Cartel (including the Rothschilds and Vatican bank), who both oversees and controls our politics, our medIa – and therefore public opinion, these are the people who are determining the future of our country, while bought and paid for politicians, like Obama, make out like bandits, at our expense.

Overcoming the obstacles in our life…

imageJesus told us that we must take up our cross daily…

What did Jesus mean when He said we have to carry a cross?

I’ve heard people talk about a problem they have and say it’s a cross they have to bear, but is this what Jesus meant?

No, this isn’t what He meant—although it’s not necessarily wrong to refer to some problem we are having as a “cross” we must bear.

In Jesus’ day, a cross was a symbol of suffering, and we all have trials and afflictions that may be very hard for us to bear—even with God’s help.

But Jesus meant something far deeper than this when He told His disciples to carry their cross.

He said to them, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23).

In Jesus’ day, a cross wasn’t just a symbol of pain and suffering; it was mainly a symbol of death.

What Jesus was telling them is that they needed to put to death their own plans and desires, and then turn their lives over to Him and do His will every day.

You see, Jesus doesn’t simply call us to believe that He existed, or even to believe that He can save us.

He calls on us to commit our whole lives to Him—to trust Him alone for our salvation, and then to follow Him as His disciples.

He said, “Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27).

Is Christ the master of your life?

Have you put to death your own plans and committed yourself to His will for your life?

Don’t be satisfied with anything less, for there is no greater joy in life than following Christ every day.
– Billy Graham

The problems and obstacles in our life come not to defeat us, but to make us stronger in Jesus!

We need to start looking at these obstacles as opportunities for us to grow and be stretched, in order for us to be conformed (molded and shaped) into the image of Christ (Rom 8:29).

Each one is God’s invitation for us to draw closer and sink our roots deeper in Him.

We Rise
by Graham Cooke

“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
– Colossians 3:1-4

Given the right mindset, everything that occurs to us in life is an opportunity.

The temptation is to see the positive and the negative as things that happen to us: just as we can encounter favor and gifts, so too adversity and strife can come to bite us when we least expect it.

It’s like we’re children, wandering cluelessly through a minefield seeded with beautiful flowers.

That isn’t the case, of course. The positive and the negative are creations of our brains, and how we choose to perceive the situations and circumstances that we find ourselves in will inform how we classify them for ourselves.

Obstacles in life are challenging, in the best and most brilliant meaning of that word: they set out a challenge to us to meet, to rise to in Christ.

They challenge us to increase our capacity for God’s fullness, to make the dream bigger in every respect.

We are in Christ, learning to become more like Him.

That’s our identity in the Kingdom: followers of Christ, subject to the furious love of God.

The church is the Lord’s Beloved, forever learning how to best accept that love, and that passion that God has for us provides us with our identity as Christians and as people, as individuals.

We are warriors. We are men and women who overcome: we do not simply endure, we rise up and overwhelm.

We have been provided with a place in the Kingdom, a place on high by the side of the Father, and we rise up to claim that place.

The action of that rising is the beginning of a spiritual journey.

In point of fact, it’s a Spiritual journey, as we partner with the Holy Spirit, our mentor in Christ and our sponsor in the Kingdom.

His vision becomes our vision as we set out upon the journey: and make no mistake, the road can be a bumpy one.

We’ll encounter blessing, no question.

We’ll meet the fullness of God, the joy of His anointing.

We’ll embrace His kindness and favor.

We’ll come to know the incredible rest that lies at the core of God’s being, that peace that He brings to us all.

There will be an experience of His Presence that will last our entire lifetime.

There will also be opposition. Warfare and persecution come hand in hand with living in Christ.

We’re children in the Kingdom, but we cannot afford to be naïve… we are opposed in our journey.

Negativity has declared itself our enemy. But just as the best and greatest way to destroy an enemy is to make him our friend, so the best way to conquer negativity is not to deny it, to turn our backs upon it, but rather to flip it around and see it from another angle, a loftier perspective. God’s perspective. It’s the art of thinking brilliantly.

The obstacles that we encounter are good for us. Adversity is opportunity in disguise.

Often it’s a very good disguise, of course—but that’s the point. If these things are here to challenge us, they have to represent a challenge.

There’s no Spiritual cache in overcoming when it’s easy, and each one of these stressful situations is specifically designed to provide a maturing experience in Christ.

We need to grow up to be the people that God knows we can be, and these confrontational circumstances are part of the ongoing conversation with Him that allows us to catch a glimpse of those people: to see how He sees, discover how He thinks, and sense His perception of us.

These things are necessary because, to be absolutely blunt, left to our own devices we would probably take every easy option there was.

We’d keep following the line of least resistance, coasting down in the same direction, specifically avoiding anything challenging.

Obstructions will slow us down: but that’s a good thing. It gives us time and space to stop and to think, to examine where we are in Christ and how to overcome this latest incidence of negativity.

Barriers in our way are useful, necessary pauses for reassessment and reevaluation.

It’s at this point that the conversation with the Kingdom must take place.

There are questions that must be raised with the Spirit: what is the obstacle intended for? What is its purpose? What can be released to us in the examination of this latest challenge?

We must always allow ourselves the space to receive what the Father is intending to give to us.

The Father’s vision for our journey isn’t just about the direction we’re intended to take, but also about the height at which we are intended to travel.

You’ll have heard it said before: everything there is to experience in Christ has an element of elevation to it.

We are seated with Him in Heavenly places. We seek what is above. God is on high, the highest, and that perspective is the one we’re intended to assume.

Once we imagine every obstacle, every adverse circumstance, as being a gift from the Father, our own perspective will shift and alter.

It must, because our old perspective was that of the obstructed.

Taking God’s perspective allows us to see the obstruction from a position of having already overcome it.

That challenge moves from tragedy to opportunity. That grief becomes our greatest gift, because it’s been designed, tailored and placed there specifically to assist us in becoming something magnificent… that thing He saw in us before we were even born.

The questions that we ask the Spirit are key here.

In Acts 2, at the Day of Pentecost, the first coming of the Holy Spirit that Jesus had prophesied, two of the truly great questions were asked by those in attendance that day:

What does this mean? and
What shall we do?

That’s inspirational.

Faced with the unprecedented, that first Act that would create a whole church, change the course of millions of lives, level and raise nations and kings, those experiencing the challenge asked the questions that would see them surf that tidal wave and experience the greatness to come.

On that day, they rose. When our time comes, we’ll rise with them.

The importance of our learning to live by faith…

image

During those times in your life when you feel like you have more than you can bear and your prayers are not getting through the ceiling, remember this…

God promised in His Word that He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you (Deut 31:6, Heb 13:5); that He will be with you always (Mat 28:20); and not only that, but He also promised to complete the work that He has begun in your life (Php 1:6).

Here’s the deal though, as Christians, we have to learn to live by faith, not by sight; and the Bible says that “without faith it’s impossible for us to please God” (Heb 11:6).

In other words, we have to learn to hang our body and the total of all our circumstances on the reliability and trustworthiness of both God and His Word; and we have to learn to do this in the face of any and all contradictory feelings, evidence or circumstances.

God has a plan, He always does, as we can learn from all the many examples found in the Bible.

He will come through and make a way – even when there appears to be no way – but He’ll do so in His timing and in His way.

Take the children of Israel, for instance, when God delivered them from their bondage of slavery in Egypt, He led them into a box canyon, with two scaling walls on either side and the Red Sea in front of them, with Pharaoh’s army barreling down behind them.

What did God do?

He did the impossible, He opened up the Red Sea so that the children of Israel could pass through on dry land.

He also use that same Red Sea to destroy all of Pharaoh’s army.

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8); and we’re told in first Corinthians 10 that these stories, that we find in the Old Testament, were written for our edification and admonition, as lessons that we can learn from and apply to our own life.

In Hebrews 5:8, we are told that Jesus learned obedience through the things that he suffered.

As His disciples, do we think things will be any different with us?

Jesus is the Prize that we are all running towards, and the goal is for us to be conformed into His image (Rom 8:29).

We all have those times when we feel as though God is a million miles away and hasn’t a clue about what’s going on in our life.

In these times this is God’s invitation for us to enter into a closer relationship with Him.

An Oak tree can take as much as 60 years to reach maturity, and during those years it passes through many dry spells, where the water is still there; but in order to reach the water the roots have to stretch down deeper into the soil, where the water is.

Likewise, during our dry spells we also have to stretch the roots of our faith deeper into God.

So we have a choice, we can either become a MIGHTY OAK; or if we want to take the quick and easy way, we can become a mushroom, which only takes about an hour to mature.

[VIDEO] Lawmaker exposes crimes of this de facto DC Corporation…

image

LAWMAKER EXPOSES CRIMES by GVT AGENCIES – AS THEY OPENLY DEFIED LAW HE PASSED

What is currently going on in Oregon is a blatant overstep of the law by another bureaucratic agency of this unconstitutional de facto United States Corporation.

This is another example of many where the tail is wagging the dog, and it must stop!

It shows the absolute ineptness of this Congress and their seeming inability or unwillingness to control not only the unconstitutional acts of a rogue president and judiciary, but also to control the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), an agency which Congress oversees and funds.

The BLM in this case is telling Congress which laws they will follow and won’t follow!

Just to illustrate how out of line all of this is with our organic U.S. Constitution, listen to the following:

This Federal Government, under this de facto and unconstitutional United States Corporation (see Act of 1871) has long ago overstepped its constitutional boundaries.

This corporate entity, called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION – which is domiciled in Washington DC, does not represent the interest of the  American people and it never has!

Our founding fathers warned us of this eventuality, should we ever allow private banks to control both our banking system and the production of our money:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” –Thomas Jefferson

“… The modern theory of the perpetuation of debt has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating.” -Thomas Jefferson

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” -James Madison

“If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.” -Andrew Jackson

Like every other corporation on the planet, the de facto United States Corporation represents the interests of its shareholders, which is an international banking cartel, and it follows the instructions of its Board of Directors and CEO, which obviously are NOT our elected representatives in the legislature, or the man in the White House.

So who are these people behind the scenes, these private banksters, who are the puppet masters that control the DC corporation?

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” – Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.

“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” – The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.

“I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people.” – Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders in 1924.

All corporations exist for one reason, and that’s NOT to represent the people underneath them, but they exist to control and manage the people underneath them.

Pursuant to the laws of the corporation, every United States citizen represents the collateral for the national debt, and that means that we are the indentured slaves to the people that hold the note.

And our elected representatives, under this system, are in fact nothing more than officers of the corporation, and they take their orders from above, not below.

It is well passed the time for “We the People” to take our de jure (lawful) government back, which is a Constitutional Republic (NOT A CORPORATION).

If you love your country and if you care about all of this illegal activity that is going on, in your name – in Washington DC, then do something!

Read and study our organic U.S. Constitution, understand what’s going on and the “One World Order Agenda” that’s behind it.

Just how far does this rabbit hole go?

The good news is our de jure Republic has already been re-inhabited, as of March 2010, which means that the de facto D.C. Corporation is now null and void, according to the law, since it had no legal footing from the beginning.

So what should you do?

Don’t just sit there like a bump on the log, while these criminals and traitors, in Washington D.C., steal every liberty from you and from your children.

Start by praying for our country; educate yourself on our history and on our organic US Constitution; and then speak up, let your voice be heard!

God’s prophetic timeclock is ticking…

This is a very timely message for our times…

Listen as Bill Harmon gives a 2016 Word of the Lord, “Starting of God’s World War III”

The masses groan and moan in fear and trepidation, as they see what’s coming upon the earth; while the nation’s governments war one against another.

Jesus used a Greek word for the labor pains of a woman about to give birth, because He knew that every generation could understand this illustration.

His meaning is clear. Just as a woman experiences birth pains that increase in frequency and intensity just before giving birth, so also will be the signs of His return, as we see and experience an increase in both frequency and intensity of these events.

Matthew 4:4-8

And Jesus said unto them:

“Take heed that no one deceives you; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ’ (God’s Anointed – Messiah) and they will deceive many.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; but see that you are not troubled because all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

But know this, and that ALL these are but the beginning of sorrows.”

For the first time in history, in our generation, we are seeing all of these signs occurring together, just as Jesus said, in increased frequency and intensity, just as happens when a woman is in labor and is about to give birth.

The centermost important focus in God’s prophetic timetable, when it comes to eschatological prophecies, regarding the last day’s events, and it’s all centered around the nation of Israel and God’s chosen city of Jerusalem.

Israel’s miraculous rebirth, as a nation, occurred in 1948, after over 2,545 years of the Jews (House of Judah) being dispersed throughout the nations of the world; and it was in 1967 when they recaptured Jerusalem, during the Six-Day War, which I believe is what marked the beginning of God’s end of days timeclock, as we approach the time of our Lord Jesus’ return to earth.

And Jesus went on to say (in vs 34) that the generation that would see all of these things come to pass, that they shall not pass away before He returns!

I believe that we are now on the verge of seeing the third Great Spiritual Awakening, that will usher in the greatest revival this world has ever seen, and it all is happening in what the Bible calls the “fullness of time,” as we are seeing all of these events occurring right before our eyes.

Come join the Adventure!
