America is Preparing For War Against Any Who Stand For God and Country!

America is Preparing For War Against Any Who Stand For God and Country!

With our all but admitted Muslim Commander in Chief making statements such as “America is no longer a Christian Nation…” and portraying Evangelicals as bitter bigots “clinging to their religion and guns”, there is undoubtedly a cold wind of anti-Christian rhetoric blowing down from Capitol Hill. There is no dispute that the President and his Administration have set the tone for the upper echelons of Government. As proof, note the filling of crucial positions with Muslims tied to extremist groups and militant Anti-Christian activists. The Defense Department, a long time bastion of Christian values is now disseminating to the ranks training materials depicting Evangelical Christians and various Respected Christian Organizations as extremists and as threats to National Security while, at the same time, removing negative references to Islam and its indisputable link to terrorism from Military documents and training materials.

Just a decade ago no one would have thought that our military, an entity that had known and valued both the comfort of knowing the living God - especially when one is huddling in a foxhole in some far flung part of the world – and the Biblical principles of Duty, Honor and Commitment to a higher cause. The Chaplain Corps. has, until very recently, been a time honored, Christ centered unit of each branch of the Military. That began to change in the 60’s and now, not only are they being censored in what they can and can’t say but they are being forced to pray to other Gods, or even no God at all. The only ‘safe’ ground for the Chaplaincy is Islam or the growing Universalism based abomination: Chrislam. The growing animosity toward Evangelical Christians in America is palpable and this is no accident of chance.

Eph 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Mat_10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Mat_24:9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

Mar_13:13  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Luk_21:17  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

There are many more similar verses, however most Christians know that the prophets and of course, Jesus Christ himself, warned that as we neared the end days we (Believing Christians) would become the targets of more and more hostility, persecution and violence. This trend can be seen in this country, where people of good Christian Conscience are being persecuted for refusing to compromise their faith by participating in activities that violate their beliefs. It is amazing that this is happening in the United States of America – a country founded on the Christian ethic and religious freedom. What’s more frightening is what is not being reported, and that is the rape, burning, beheading and other heinous acts of random violence being perpetrated against Christians all over the globe. Of course, the majority of these atrocities are in Muslim countries such as Egypt, Syria, Libya, Nairobi, the list goes on. Thousands of Christians die each day, yet these horrible crimes are ignored by Obama, the majority of the world media and the governments of other Countries in positions to address the issue. The U.S. State Department has done practically nothing, choosing to sit on its hands just as it has through every crisis that has erupted since Obama became President.

This brings me back to what is happening here, in the United States:

Since Obama was elected President more and more positions in his staff, particularly those in high ranking positions with access to high level restricted information, have been assigned to Muslims or those publicly sympathetic to Islam. A number of concerned individuals and organizations including Rep. Michelle Bachman have expressed grave concern over these individuals and their close contacts with extremist groups such as Al Qaeda and The Muslim Brotherhood. I have addressed this in an article found here. Their queries have been met with derision and accusations of bigotry and racism. In the meantime the inner circles of our Governments most sensitive offices have been infiltrated by Muslim Extremists.

Couple this with the abundance of evidence that President Obama is not only Anti-Christian, in fact, he is a practicing Muslim, and that he is devoted to the implementation of Muslim Sharia Law in the United States and supports the eventual worldwide domination by Islam – all of these are important doctrines found in Islam’s sacred writings.

These are extreme statements I know and I am sure I will be inundated with insults and accusations, however continue reading and perhaps you might rethink your opinion of me:

Since Obama’s election he has replaced key positions in the Joint Chiefs, DHS, FBI the IRS and the DOJ with individuals who are either Muslims or who are pro-Islam in their policy decisions. These individuals who do not appear to have been properly vetted by the Government,  have been vetted by groups like Judicial Watch, the ACLJ and Heritage Foundation, all who found disturbing ties to extremist groups in the Middle East, including terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda, Hamas and The Muslim Brotherhood. However it is over the past several months that we have seen the most disturbing results of these Obama appointments.
Instead of focusing on obvious sources of Terrorism – Iran, Yemen the UAE and other locales in the Middle East and Africa, the Obama Administration has instead chosen to switch focus to individuals and organizations within this country as the new top level threats – more potentially dangerous than even Al Qaeda! And, who are these nefarious and obviously threatening Domestic Groups and Individuals? Fundamentalist Christians, Faith Organizations, Evangelical Christian Churches, Organizations with the words Liberty, Freedom or Patriot in their title and/or literature – you get the picture. If that doesn’t send a chill down your spine then you must be so dogmatic in your devotion to Obama that nothing he could do would shake your blind devotion to him. To those who are not blinded by the delusion that is Obama I ask you this: Do you Blog about our Government, Obama, the Administration or the FBI, DHS etc in a critical manner? Do you question the Constitutionality of their methods? Do you expose the truth about their operations, doing the Media’s job for them? Then you, my friend, are a potential target.

While the Media is doing their best to get the people to forget about the IRS’s admitted targeting of Tea Party, Conservative and Christian organizations, some of you must still remember that “Phony” scandal. (Obama’s words: Phony) Well, I doubt seriously if you were on the receiving end of the IRS’s malfeasance that you would consider it “Phony”. Despite the fact that the IRS was exposed in these illegal activities, they are still going on to this date. It is inevitable that eventually, if these methods continue, that even small time Citizen Journalists such as myself will be facing retribution from this Government. Remember, just recently legislation was approved protecting the Main Stream Media from consequences of their reporting, however, Alternate Media and Citizen Journalists were excluded. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see where this is leading.

Additionally, it has been disclosed that the Armed Services are being indoctrinated to reject Christianity and view Christians as extremists and radicals. The same is true within the FBI, the DHS and the DOJ. It has even been revealed that training for these agencies now includes silhouette targets representing the typical American, some garbed as the stereotypical “Survivalist” others just men and women, some armed with various weapons such as AR-15’s and Ak-47’s  – all designed to desensitize the trainees to the idea of engaging American Citizens.

Freedom of Information Act disclosures as well as information from the Snowden leaks indicate the the NSA has been illegally monitoring phone and data traffic of American Citizens here within the US! That means that if you share posts on the various social networking sites and/or other sites that criticize the Administration or if you post or blog in ways that are critical of Obama or the government you have been added to a list, albeit a very long list – you are on a list nevertheless –  a list that should never have existed!

By executive order or by simply ignoring Constitutional Law the Obama Administration has initiated an intelligence gathering operation on American Citizens on American Soil. At the same time, the Military and Federal Paramilitary Enforcement Agencies are being trained to engage civilians in Hostile Military Actions. Every Federal Agency with an enforcement arm has begun stockpiling HUGE amounts of ammunition as well as accumulating Firearms, Armored Vehicles and Heavy Weapons of various sorts including Rocket Launchers, Mortars and advanced Drone based systems.

If you have followed me for any time at all you know that I am not one to follow after every conspiracy theory bouncing around on the web. I try to footnote entries that could be questionable and I read as much as I can on a subject prior to writing about it. If you have another reason for all of these well documented cases (most have even been acknowledged, grudgingly, by the Agencies involved) please let me know. However to me, and a growing number of regular Americans, not hysterics, or tin foil hat types, just regular Joes and Janes, we are beginning to see that there is only one place this trend could be leading:

America is Preparing For War Against Any Who Stand For God and Country!

Tribulation prophecy is portentously lacking in references to the US. For centuries Eschatologists have wondered at what this could mean. America was not only a world Super Power but we were also staunch allies with Israel. It was inconceivable that we would not be involved in, if nothing else, the Ezekiel prophecies. However, other than one vague reference to the young lions which, in my opinion, has nothing to do with this country, it would appear that America is not involved, at least in any military capacity, in the events immediately prior to the Tribulation nor during the Tribulation period. We must assume that something keeps the US from intervening in the events noted by the Prophet Ezekiel. It is also apparent that we do not play any significant role during the Tribulation, either in opposition to or support of, the World Government of the Antichrist.

Could it be that Civil strife, perhaps even civil war sidelines the United States rendering the US incapable of helping Israel even if we were inclined to. Or, could it be that we are being set up for a Government takeover, Martial Law as many have suggested. The new Military backed government would likely quietly go along with the New World Order. It is also conceivable that the Rapture would remove a significant number of the population and cause enough chaos and madness among those who remain that the Country would be too crippled to be of any influence in world events. Who knows? The bible is silent, therefore we must simply wait on the Lord – I doubt that we have long to wait.

This brings me to the wrap up of this article. Let’s not be fearful, ok? Remember Ephesians 6:12 –  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

More than anything, this is a spiritual war. There are things going on unseen that are driving everything we see. As disturbing as it might be, Godlessness everywhere, Homosexual Marriage, Immorality, Violence and, of course, the possibility that our own country is preparing to conduct military operations against American Citizens on American Soil, remember: Greater is He who is in you, than he who is in the world! John 4:4  And, we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 No matter how crazy this life seems or how out of control things appear to be God is in control. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is with us, His Spirit dwells within us, guiding us, comforting us. No matter what happens we have Heaven waiting for us just on the other side of the veil of this world. In fact, all of these things should cause us to lift our heads high and shine all the brighter for Jesus because these things we see all point to the fact that the end is indeed near and it is absolutely imperative that our focus be on getting the Gospel out to those who have not yet found their way to Salvation in Christ Jesus.

So, let’s put aside confusion and frustration and go forth into the world and spread the good news of Jesus Christ –  for the time is indeed growing short – that, my friends, is how best we can do our part in this war!

God Bless You ALL!

Pastor Chuck Smith


On Thursday, October 3 Pastor Chuck Smith moved out of the ragged tent in which he had been living and into a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  2 Corinthians, 5:1

For the last several years Pastor Chuck used to quip about his obituary stating that Chuck Smith had died. “That’s bad reporting,” he would say, “what it should say is Chuck Smith moved.” That sense of humor and a deep abiding love for Jesus and the Word epitomize who Chuck Smith was for us who knew him through his radio and video ministries.

While I never met him, Pastor Chuck was still my spiritual mentor and teacher for many years. After stumbling upon his radio show many years ago, To Every Man an Answer, I became enamored with his Sound, low key, Bible based teaching style. I was sick of all the over the top ‘Televangelist’ types and the churches in our small town were so full of gossips and their little cliques that I didn’t attend church – not a valid excuse I know now, but at that time it served to keep me away.

When I heard Pastor Chuck for the first time it was as if the Holy Spirit washed over me in the form of a cool refreshing breeze. My spiritual life was suddenly renewed and I soon began listening to Pastor Chuck’s tapes and following his show, The Word for Today. I largely credit Pastor Chuck with the cherished relationship with the Lord that I enjoy today. It is obvious, looking back, that the Lord used Pastor Chuck to play an important part in who I am today. I look forward to meeting him in Heaven and thanking him.

These days I attend a wonderful church and have solid Christian friends whose fellowship and friendship I cherish. Nevertheless, I still listen to Pastor Chuck’s teachings (the C2000 series) as I make my way through the word, book by book. That is another thing I picked up from Pastor Chuck. Start at Genesis and read all the way to Revelation. Then, start again. I do get side tracked as I research for these essays or as I am prompted by the Holy Spirit, but I find I always wind up picking up where I left off eventually and continuing my journey book by book through the word of The Living God.

So, it is with great joy and happiness that I bid my teacher, not farewell, no way.


Pastor Chuck – I’ll See You Soon!
