What is this Global Awakening stuff?

When I was a UU in the late 1980s and most of the 90s, my UU ministers would talk about the supposed time that would come to the earth, where humanity would give up all the false "divisions" between them and would "unify" in peace and harmony.

They believed like their New Age compatriots that "consciousness" would advance in humanity and human beings would evolve into "this new consciousness". One liberal art history professor who  spent time in Papau New Guinea that I had would back these teachings up discussing the time that the people of "Gaia" would come together in peace and prosperity and humanity would no longer wage wars and would go from an individual consciousness to a globalist one. Anyone even remotely familiar with the New Age knows this is a very basic teaching even within it's subcultures and sub-movements.




It's interesting to me, and one reason I think God led me to do this blog, how what I learned in the Unitarian Universalist Association and within the New Age is now being pushed full-bore in so called Christian circles. Keep the above theme in mind as you keep reading. We know the Emergents desire the same NEW WORLD as the New Agers. All these groups are being converged with one another:



"Christians Creating a New World" it reads above.  Well we have seen that theme all over the place, the Dominionists and others are even on the CREATE A NEW WORLD bandwagon, loving this world instead of following what the Bible says.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

All over the place I am seeing this discussion of the GLOBAL AWAKENING.

What is worse, is even finding places that "expose" the NWO, and "conspiracies" and then seeing that term used, and usually it is about human beings coming into "knowing" and embracing this "new consciousness" under a new veil, but it's basically remarketed luciferian lies for the "conspiracy" set. Satan's lies are the same all over, and well, people who do not have the love of God and are not looking to eternity with Jesus Christ are totally invested in this world.

This is a twisted way to influence those seeking for truth in current affairs. The Jesuit "V for Vendetta" face, who I talked about on the posts [see here and here] dealing with the Occupy movement seems to be making an appearance STILL. It's strange how it has moved from the Occupy movement to those standing up against the new world order. But hey they desire to cover all angles, after all even Occupy protests were getting a few people there warning about the Federal Reserve.


I saw this on a website purporting to warn about the new world order. What does that tell you?
This graphic appears in some odd places, here for a secular music concert.  Just more brainwashing the young people for that agenda of global unity.




On another website, that shows itself as warning about the new world order, notice they got everything from the Rothchilds, MK Ultra mind control to HAARP covered but then they have the ultimate NWO agenda of GLOBAL AWAKENING right there.
How do I explain what is being done, this stuff makes MY HEAD hurt, but as more people find out the truth about the new world order, the bankers, the "control" from the top, they can't just ignore this.  The controllers and evil of this world, will be even using this to their own benefit. Satan has a trap and multilayers of deceit as I have warned, and well this is one of their most deceitful tricks...

Notice here how they call for GLOBAL UNITY for NON-COMPLIANCE against the NWO? 

Warning this link [ZenGardner] is NOT a Christian website and is akin to David Icke's type of writing where new errors are introduced to deceive thinkers and those who realize SOME of the world's deceptions. 
"Understand your enemy, and understand the weapons they use. Then use those same weapons against them. The money system is the head of the snake. Cut the head off the snake and the rest of it will whither and die. There need be No violence, no guns, no banners, no slogans, no group think, just a united act of global non compliance. 
  Remember that it is much easier to fight for principles than to live up to them and it takes a far braver man to stand up for what is right and spit in the face of authority than it does to blindly follow orders due to fear of the consequences. Understand that we are all one and the key to real change and unity in this world lies with love. 
  It is time for the people of the world to stop and realise that the divisions that supposedly exist amongst us are an illusion. There IS NO division and its time for everyone to understand the truth of this. 
It is through the constantly promoted illusion of division that the system is able to function but in order for it to do so, it needs public compliance. Stop complying with it and you will shut it down. It’s time for us all to collectively stand together and address the root cause of the problems."
  Interesting how they say "no group think" and then want the globe to be UNITED here. Notice the "divisions" thing too, what else to help bring in the one world religion? This is a repeated message in many different venues.

This is on a semi-related topic, but have any of you read the mutterings about a GLOBAL DEBT JUBILEE? [see here and here]  I wonder what part that would play if they decide on such a thing and not just using it to lull people asleep, sounds good right? But this would actually centralize the world banking power and money system even MORE. It also would probably affect notions of "ownership" we can't even begin to fathom.

Keep in mind the Pope himself called for a world authority to deal with the banking system. Now if you ponder these things, why wouldn't they push an agenda supposedly to dismantle "the system" while rebuilding stronger and more centralized "authority"? Sell the notion of "global awakening" to get people on board, thinking they are advancing society and freeing the "slaves" from bankers and others and you can see where this is headed all for the use of the Antichrist. That said, just as "fight the liberals" is a trap for Christians, do add "fight the new world order" to the list. Some may find that odd for someone to write who has filled pages of pages of a blog WARNING about the new world order, but there are so many traps for someone to fall into, away from spiritual warfare into carnal "warfare" and they will be putting that to use as well.

 2Cr 10:4    (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Well back to the GLOBAL AWAKENING... One can see this stuff all through out the so called Christian world too. This is a charismatic "Christian" website with Randy Clark who had ties to John Wimber and is connected to the School of the Prophets movement and from what I can tell the "New Apostolic Reformation". What a strange logo of a man thrown back upon a globe within a tear drop!
Why would Christians use a term like global awakening? Do you think they forgot what the New Agers used to teach about the globe "awakening" and coming into a "new consciousness?" I sure don't, considering the endless array of false teachings.



Christian books have the phrase too.  If one reads the Bible, it warns of a great falling away, not endless revivals to bring the world into a "Christian revolution".


  
By the way New World Order Elite Zbigniew Brzezinski speaks of a "global political awakening":

Brzezinski refers to the ‘global political awakening’ as “a truly transformative event on the global scene,” since:
For the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive. There are only a few pockets of humanity left in the remotest corners of the world that are not politically alert and engaged with the political turmoil and stirrings that are so widespread today around the world. The resulting global political activism is generating a surge in the quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world painfully scarred by memories of centuries-long alien colonial or imperial domination.[2]
Brzezinski posits that the ‘global political awakening’ is one of the most dramatic and significant developments in geopolitics that has ever occurred, and it “is apparent in radically different forms from Iraq to Indonesia, from Bolivia to Tibet.” 


Those who think "the global awakening" isn't being managed as well and believes the global unity is against the plans of the powers of this world, are very naive and not taking scriptural warnings seriously.

Even David Icke, deceiver, has warned of the global awakening that is supposed to take a "stand" against the new world order. Should we believe Icke or Brzezinski? I suppose it will be like the multiple "revolutions" in the Middle East.

Watch out for Christian ministries, that speak of GLOBAL AWAKENING, be careful of those who slap the term AWAKEN all over the place too. I am seeking that one ALL over the place. Some probably use this unknowingly but why is this particular slogan, word, being chosen?




That is a term that can be abused as well, such as when the deceived call for people to awaken their "christ consciousness", on the outlook for the Antichrist. That one seems to be all over the place with some of them adding RISE or ARISE to the formula. There is an Awakening "Christian" music festival and you can see it used elsewhere.  This is supposedly a "Christian" book, can you believe it? I wonder if that light trail forms a rune or other symbol?



I did a bible search on KJV to see if the word AWAKEN is in there, its not, but AWAKE IS in there over and over.

Rom 13:11    And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Such a subtle thing but those who speak of being AWAKENED, that is a much more a prideful place, of falling for the New Age concept of being an "enlightened" one. Would you say as a Christian, "I am awakened"? I sure wouldn't, because a Christian place is to be humble and know there is new things always for God to show them. There is a big difference between shouting AWAKE to the sleeping people and the claim of being AWAKENED, and some who have been in the New Age will know what I mean.

Hmm hand signs and everything...



So why is that one all over the church graphics too? Some may think I am nit picking here over a simple "N" but think this out. As I have said before when you see "new language" watch out. "Only the Awakened Will Understand!!!" is written on the book below. I don't remember slogans like that being used before. Doesn't look like they have "woken up" to the basics of the one world deception yet.


Tell me what you think...

Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Blog Business: Deluged With Spam

Does anyone know any techniques to limit spam? I have the comments on moderation but a lot of spam is coming in, there was even over 150 posts I had to delete yesterday that was all spam. Just curious if others have faced this on their blogs. Don't worry if you comment, I can still get everything and post it OK.

Thanksgiving

{picture cite}

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers. Tomorrow is a day to remember to thank God for everything He has done for us. Of course every day a Christian should be thanking God for the great things He has done for us, and His love for us in our salvation. 

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

I thank God for giving me the chance to have this blog and talk about what is going on, and about the things I and others have been shown. Knowing there are other Christians out there, who too are being warned by the Holy Spirit has been been a great comfort and encouragement for me as well. God is always faithful and will always be there for you. I know this year even exposing some of the things I have, and the hard subject matter, that while these things can be tough to talk about, that there is always joy, praise and Thanksgiving to be had in God's arms. Everyday I thank God for my salvation and for what He has done for me and praise Him for providing for us, His comfort and Love.


2 Corinthians 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

Psalm 69: 30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

Glen Beck's Strange Agenda 21 Commericials

from Fanatic for Jesus:


UN's Agenda 21: Sinister Commercials



Just so you know these commercials were NOT RUN by the United Nations but by Glenn Beck. They were basically fake commercials run to advance his new book. Course I find myself thinking why advertise for something you supposedly are AGAINST as many people watching those commercials who are not Christian believers will AGREE with the sentiments displayed? How many of those folks will come back and realize they were commercials run by Glenn Beck?

"For weeks, a series of suspicious advertisements have been airing during the breaks on TheBlaze. These ads have been promoting pieces of Agenda 21, and advocate for eugenics and other horrible policies. Now, Glenn has been clear in the past that he is a capitalist, but would he really allow ads to run that advocated for Agenda 21, a U.N. program that he first discussed when he was on FOX News several years ago? Today, the truth behind the ads was revealed: Agenda 21 is a new fiction book written by Glenn Beck which looks at a future where Agenda 21 has been implemented to it’s full extent. 
  “If you don’t know what Agenda 21 is, it’s the U.N. division of sustainable development. It’s a terrifying, terrifying reality and it’s all being done locally. This is something that I talked about two years ago on Fox, but of course, the conspiracy theorists among us say that I’m part of Agenda 21 and this ad is just proof positive to some.” 
One kooky website went so far as to call Glenn a globalist operative: “Infowars.com has exposed Beck as a globalist operative assigned to undermine and neutralize the liberty movement. ‘Glenn Beck specializes in disinformation ops designed to trick his ‘conservative’ followers and lead them into dead-ends and cul-de-sacs that ultimately neutralize the political opposition,’ we wrote in June.” 
“Probably the best operative of all time,” Pat joked. “I’m going to come clean. That’s why I hired a team of filmmakers to make these four commercials for Agenda 21. I’m going to come clean with you. The United Nations did not pay for those commercials. I paid for them. I made them and I paid for them,” Glenn said."
Ah yes more battles for the show....if you get what I mean... Here's the book. I read elsewhere supposedly this other co-author lady actually wrote this book, and Glenn Beck made a deal to put his name on it. Be careful of that link, the author still thinks the "US Constitution is the law of the land", and that Agenda 21 is harmless.

Glenn Beck has written a new FICTION book called Agenda 21.   Isn't it interesting how these sorts always desire to profit off misery? More indoctrination and desensitization to a future system? [kind of like Hunger Games?]

Agenda 21 is a real deal. One can go to the United Nations website and look for themselves as to what Agenda 21 entails. I don't want to put the link here, but go and look at the preambles, sections etc. It covers everything from transportation, all various parts of industry and much much more. The amount of desired control and globalist micro-management you will see before your eyes, is awe-inspiring.



I am not sure what Beck's game is here yet. To get everyone against Agenda 21 labeled as "kooks"?
Any guy making a habit of hanging out with the Vatican is a hypocrite when it comes to standing up against the implementation of world government. The Pope after all pushes the Agenda 21 "green" programs and world government every chance he gets.  Of course we know Glenn Beck is a deceiver and in my belief pro-Agenda 21 commercials were made with helping to indoctrinate people in mind.

Preppers and God



Have any of you noticed how prepping is getting big in this country? By the way, I have no problem with preppers as people and there those who are committed Christians. I even have a couple friends long distance who participate in the "prepping lifestyle". I believe there are many people God is  instructing to "get ready" whether to take care of themselves or of others, when hard times hit.
Many preppers are "new world order aware" and awake to what is going on which is an asset. There are some people who were sitting in NYC and NJ last week who I am sure, probably regretting mocking some of those "crazy" preppers

As you know, I think modern life is not all it's cracked up to be, and as people moved off the land, and away from family and friends, it just made everyone more vulnerable to being controlled via the global elites. We have lost valued old time skills, such as gardening, canning, building things, and basic survival. I certainly do not have any outside of knowing how to bake bread from scratch and building a fire from sticks learned at a Girl Scout camp. Many people who grew up in suburbs and cities, never learned some of what Grandma took for granted. As society grew more complex, people grew more dependent in many unpredicted ways.

The preppers are right about many things, the stores clean out everytime there is a storm, and big storms, watch out!  If you have ever been in a hurricane, blizzard or other event, you probably know what I am talking about.


But I have concerns about some aspects of prepping. One thing about prepping it costs money, some people who are poorer may manage to keep a week of bottled water, a few lanterns and canned meat, but there are many living paycheck to paycheck who are not going to be able to store a few years worth of food, gas masks, special clothing, tools, or even own the land or house with a fireplace or wood stove, for alternative methods of heating or growing their own food. Every time a storm hits and the lights go out, and if you're somebody living in an apt, that is all electric run, you may question the wisdom of that but then what do you do, if there is no money for a mortgage or any land? You do what you can and trust in God to help you and start praying.

Read the lists of prepping supplies and the costs even for your basic prepping lifestyle, can run into the thousands of dollars. Everything from wood stoves, land to grow things on, cans for canning. This is not for the paycheck to paycheck crowd or for those who were separated from farm and family in the previous generation before they were even born.

Hey I have read magazines like Backwoods Home and others and know there has to be some expendable income in play to many of these things. People in the city are especially vulnerable. Sometimes I have to admit, I got tired of watching on news websites some people on the comment sections lambasting those for not preparing before Hurricane Sandy and say "What's wrong with those people?" or "It's their fault, they didn't prepare!" . Even today, I was reading some folks on a right-wing website showing anger at disabled elderly people who got trapped in a 37 floor building in the aftermath of Sandy, where they said, "Well they choose to live there!" Having known big city life, many are living paycheck to paycheck and the end of the month, the larders have grown short. For the old and impoverished they take what they can get. So there are people who did not have much of a choice while others were not wise but the assumption that everyone can "get ready" is a false one.

It seems there is a dog eat dog kind of mentality growing out there, this isn't everyone of course, but we are seeing the negative attitudes growing in the every man for himself culture. This isn't every prepper, but some can go overboard with the me first and "I'll survive at all costs" mentalities. Remember the media is pushing that stuff day and night every which way.  What does the Bible say in terms of helping others? One thing to ask yourself if it all goes bad, are you going to follow the law of the jungle or the law of God?  Spiritual preparation is the most important.

2 Cor 9:6-15 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 

One strain of falseness I see on the false right wing side, is the self reliance at all costs stuff, with Ayn Rand philosophies married to social darwinism that is anything but Christian. This isn't every prepper either, but there can be the taint, of pride in someone who thinks they are ready for anything and can outlast whatever is thrown at them. The left is false too in their exploitation of the poor but as people know I have confronted the right here too. Visit your average website on the "right", and the message's all over are the poor are a bunch of "deadbeats." They supposedly are the cause of the debt instead of endless wars and the dismantling of the manufacturing system in America. Compassion for those facing hardship is diminished. Self reliance is a key phrase in prepper culture, and sure there can be some positives in taking responsiblity but be warned of those who take that too far, and get into "survival of the fittest" mode.

I have been thinking how prepping is arising out of disconnected culture, where community has broken up in America, where the every man and household for itself stuff is holding sway! Sure there are some communities that join together even in prepping, but in thinking about this, it seems it really has gone to the extreme. When some folks are literally wanting to turn their homes into bunkers and take to the wilds, it means that something has shifted in a society. We don't need to debate the need, I understand their motives, but it is something to notice.  It really says a lot about the levels things have gone and how people feel so vulnerable in a society that seems to be cracking at the seams, and where there is a disaster around every corner.  It really shows how in American society, the ennui, the loneliness, the detachment from other people is playing out. It's making people afraid. Even the non-believers know something has shifted.

One disturbing thing though, I have seen too many trusting in their stuff. Think about this: were there any Sandy hurricane victims who saw their preps washed out to sea? Some may say "Maybe a prepper would never live too close to the ocean!" but one thing so many things can happen in this world, you can't be ready for EVERYTHING. If you are prepper thinking those storages of food, medical and heating supplies will automatically save the day, there are endless unforseen circumstances from others collecting up your foodstuffs to needing to evacuate. Maybe I've read too many World War II memoirs, when chaos ensues, shelves and shelves of supplies aren't going to be a hedge against every calamity.  It's impossible.

Matt 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Here is where trust in God comes in.

What does the Bible say about preparing? Well here, these verses follow with the be awake and be ready. Some preparations can be led by God. If God gives you the resources to make something happen and you feel led in prayer to prepare certain things, then do so.

Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished

Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Proverbs 21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

Proverbs 35:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD. 

But overall, one is to trust in God to meet their needs and not live in worry and fear.

Philippians 4:19  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:24 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. 

Now remember I am not saying prepping is "wrong",there are those, God is leading to prepare ahead of time, but there are many things to think about in regards to it. What are your thoughts? 



White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation




White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation

What is happening to America? This isn't a good thing showing how the two party system has worked so well to divide the country, perhaps by DESIGN in my opinion. "Civil wars" are not something positive on the menu. I find myself wondering how bad things are going to get when the Obamacare bills come in the mail?

Everything seems to be getting weirder here. Can you imagine this being in the news 30 years ago? I don't know if anyone remembers but I posted about this link or put it in comments a long time ago. Remember when this guy was talking about this back in 2008?
Russian Igor Panarin: America Will Break Up, Dissolve

I find it interesting they are even putting this stuff in the news, we know they hide certain things and publicize others..... To add to the strife?  To add names to lists?
Residents in more than 30 states have filed secession petitions with the "We the People" program on the White House website. Petitions to strip citizenship of individuals signing onto petitions to secede and exile them have also been submitted. A threshold of 25,000 signatures must be met within 30 days for petitions to be reviewed. The Obama administration explains, "If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response."
  Some of the people are rightly outraged at things like the NDAA and TSA but overall one wonders where this is going. What would be their response? It is a bad sign of where things have gone that is for sure.   I am still pondering what this all means. Romney supported just about everything Obama follows.

Calvary Chapel Pastor Sues Son For Cyberbullying

I got this link from Christian Research Net:

Calvary Chapel Pastor Sues Son for Cyberbullying
Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel movement—which faced a day of reckoning and uncertain future in 2007 over concerns about lax moral standards among its leaders—is making headlines once again. 
  It's not often that a father will sue his own son. But Bob Grenier, pastor of Visalia Calvary Church, says he is tired of his estranged son Alex Grenier's "cyberbullying campaign" against his parents and their church—so the elder Grenier is pressing charges to make his son stop. 
In a lawsuit filed in October, Bob Grenier alleges that Alex Grenier launched a website and "posted accusations that his father committed felony child abuse against him and his three brothers while pretending to be an upstanding preacher and police chaplain," the Fresno Bee reports. 
Besides libel and slander, the lawsuit also alleges that Alex Grenier and another Visalia church member, Tim Taylor, "engaged in intentional infliction of emotional distress of the pastor and his wife." The scandal broke about two years ago, when Alex Grenier first launched his site.
Alex Grenier, discusses things here.
"Make no mistake, the recent lawsuit brought by Calvary Chapel Pastor Bob Grenier is intentional, it’s strategic and it’s with the support of Calvary Chapel. Many in the Calvary Chapel System are watching closely. 
Many of the Senior Pastors are keeping a close eye on this. 
What message are we going to send them? Are we going to recoil in fear? Succumb to persecution for doing what’s right and righteous? Be silenced by fear of recrimination?"

See:

Visalia pastor sues son over 'cyberbullying'

 Calvary Chapel pastor sues estranged son over ‘cyberbullying’

Calvary Chapel Visalia Pastor Bob Grenier Files Lawsuit against Son and Former Church Member


"If Bob Grenier and by extension Calvary Chapel (who he represents as an Affiliated Pastor) are allowed to get away with framing Free Speech, Whistleblowing and exposing abuse and corruption in the church as a “hate campaign” and “cyberbullying” and “defamation/libel”…then the Chilling Effect it will have on others is extremely frightening. This is a very important matter. If those who wield the Power of Public Figure and Position of Trust Pastor/Chaplain are allowed to win frivolous lawsuits in an attempt to cover over their bad actions and silence victims and critics and watchdogs, then beware, you might be next…and the result will be the covering over and enabling of much more abuse and corruption within the “church” and it will make it easier for Children to be abused and molested."

I wouldn't consider Bob Grenier a "fellow believer" concerning the bible passage below, but it is interesting how this man claiming to be Christian goes and SUES.

 1 Corinthians 6  (KJV)

6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?


This really tells you how far gone things are in the churches.

I wrote this back in 2011 about the situation with Alex Grenier:


I think Alex is wasting time arguing with the guy. His best bet is to run for the hills, and while he can still speak out not engage the wicked. He is throwing pearls before swine and is only going to allow himself to be rend by them.
 I do not see him as a loose cannon, just someone who is young and was severely abused, and while outspoken, misdirecting his energies to expecting recourse from Chuck Smith. When he told him to "get a life", that said it all to me as to what Chuck Smith was about. How cruel can you get?
It seems that a godly man at least try and have some empathy for a young abused man. I saw Catholic bishops in articles and the rest having that 'get a life' attitude towards abuse victims.
I do not mind Alex speaking out against the abuse, I think that should continue, but expecting recourse from the abusers or their enablers, is a waste of time. He needs to realize even spiritually what he is dealing with. I am going to pray for him.
We are seeing that abuse issues are coming out in that church. 


4 more years of Obama!


Picture cite: "Painting depicts President Obama with a burning Constitution"

Well Romney was no different.

I kept wondering if the election was being thrown to Obama, when they had well known Republican candidates say things about rape  they knew would outrage the public especially ensuring more of a female vote for Obama.. I am noticing on Christian websites, they are asking, "Have we lost the culture wars?" in response to Obama's win. The culture wars were a losing endeavor from the start. Why did they expect politics to change people's hearts? They won't and can't. Here, the problem was summed up.

"We must face the reality that we may be on the losing side of the culture war," wrote Stetzer in his blog posted the day after the election. "For decades, the 'religious right' has focused its energies on winning the day through political means."

"Winning the day through political means"...that sums it up, in a nutshell, with false pastors galore having jumped on the religious right bandwagon as the ship sinks. 

 The secular world takes one look at the religious right, and sees the hypocrisy, the focus on some evils, but ignoring a multitude of others, love of war and mammon. Obama also won because of the Republican/religious right focus in blaming the poor. The endless numbers of unemployed and others struggling economically in this country, probably voted Democrat from that motive alone. The religious right minions pushed their MORMON candidate telling us he would save the day. What a joke. Romney and Obama were just more of the same.

They have indoctrinated much of this nation to care more about "false freedoms" such as gay marriage rather then true freedoms, like knowing the NDAA rejects everything the USA used to be about. Traditional values are out, and those who believed "culture wars" and ranting about poor people as the "deadbeats" destroying the economy instead of a look at all the banker bails-outs, corruption and endless wars were part of the problem to begin with. Both the right and left help each other out and serve as enablers to disguise the giant lies.

Some of you older folks, may be realizing many of our young people with few exceptions having spent years indoctrinated by the media, schools and more, all definitely have a world view that differs. They have become far more accepting of homosexuality, abortion, and embrace globalism as the norm.  Ask an Obama supporter about NDAA and their eyes glaze over. 90% don't even know what you are talking about, but then the same goes for the right as well.

You know things are really sad in America, when journalists in totalitarian nations like Russia, are writing articles about how this place is descending into a police state, and losing all it's freedoms and has descended into a materialist and decadent culture. Putin is no better but ask yourself how others are seeing the events here. You'd think that'd be a wake up call in itself. I told someone this recently and they didn't believe it.

This guy is right that the country is getting the politicians it deserves. The spiritual blindness married to the focus on wicked things has allowed the right/left deception and false paradigms to fool most of the population. I struggle with the sad emotions of seeing this country change so rapidly in a negative way too, and realizing where things are going but remember this verse:


Psalm 146:3

3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

"Calvary Chapel ARRESTED Member Warning Brethren"



Imagine you are at a church conference, and you speak out against someone you believe is a false teacher and in this case has been exposed as a fraud even by others, and instead of anyone hearing your complaints, or listening, they get 6 security guards to grab you and arrest you for speaking out.

I decided to post on this because this is scary how Costa Mesa would have a man arrested for speaking out against a false teacher. Freedom of speech is gone in churches like this. Cults get people arrested for speaking out. Cults use every weight of the law to crush those who disagree or dissent. Remember they didn't just seek to avert the situation they saw as so "challenging", they pressed charges.

What kind of church has a "security squad" that is ready to hustle you away and detain you for speaking out? One thing I noticed is they had the handcuffs ready. Note to folks out there, get out of any church that feel it needs hired or appointed goons to "control" the place, it's either too big, and has already lost the plot. What kind of church members see your "disagreement" as automatic grounds to have you hustled off to jail?

This was at a conference too, not a church service.

Ephesians 5:11 provides documentation and letters at the links. [This is not an endorsement of the blog below but for information about what happened]

 Calvary Chapel ARRESTED Member Warning Brethren - THE DOCUMENTATION Part 1

Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Member Arrested When Warning Brethren of Ergun Caner

[See here too]

"Former NBA player Nick VanderLaan, a recent money-giving member of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, tells his story of being detained against his will and then arrested for speaking out at a meeting to question the presence of the controversial Ergun Caner.
He attended a special meeting at CCCM featuring Ergun Caner as the guest-speaker. Previous to the meeting, Nick expressed his concern to CCCM Leadership, believing he had the right and responsibility to do so as a giving member of the Church. His concerns were basically ignored.
At the meeting, Nick stood up to challenge Caner’s presence. He was non-violent and merely spoke out and spoke up. Calvary Chapel Leadership knew who he was. Nick and his family were known quantities, attended a trip to Israel with Chuck Smith, counseled with pastors there, dedicated their kid at the CCCM pulpit etc etc.
He was immediately surrounded and detained by the Calvary Chapel goon squad (my opinion, my description of the security guards and CC personnel based off of their subsequent actions). The goon squad cuffed Nick up, took him to another part of the church, denied him bathroom and water and detained him against his will for a prolonged period of time. Santa Ana police arrived later and arrested and charged Nick."

Calvary Chapel Abuse also has posted on this matter..

 "Former NBA Player, Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa member, detained against his will for speaking out at meeting, arrested, then acquitted"

What gets interesting is Ergun Caner, asked the audience to respond and Nick did.
"This incident was not during a church service, but during a conference. In the 36-second YouTube recording below, you can hear Ergun Caner seemingly inviting audience response by his words: "So if you've got a problem with me, hit me up and tell me what I did wrong." VanderLaan's response was: "I have a problem with you. You're a liar, you're a fraud, you need to repent."
Ergun Caner HAS been exposed by others who were concerned about serious contradictatory statements.

While memories can grow foggy, and mistakes made, the below contradictions are very serious ones.

"In London, college student and blogger Mohammad Khan also began looking into Caner's past after watching sermons he thought showed odd blunders in Caner's knowledge of Islam.
 Soon Khan, White and other bloggers began e-mailing and sharing suspicious errors and contradictions they found in Caner's videos and online writings.
In some accounts, Caner said he grew up in Turkey in a climate of "Islamic jihad." In recorded sermons, he talked about coming to the United States as a teenager and converting to Christianity. In one sermon, he put it more bluntly, saying he was trained to do what the Sept. 11 terrorists had done.
Yet, in a book he co-wrote with his younger brother, "Unveiling Islam: An Insider's Look at Muslim Life and Beliefs," he said their parents wed in Sweden and the family moved to Ohio when Ergun was a young boy, an account he also has provided publicly.
Indeed, bloggers found his parents' divorce records showing the family moved to Ohio in 1970, when Caner was 3 or 4, contradicting his account of teenage years on the cusp of Muslim extremism in Turkey. Bloggers also pointed to suspicious mistakes an Islamic expert was unlikely to make and timelines that did not match up."

Ergun Caner is on the Missler list of Board of Regents. so has been mentioned on this blog before. His is a name that crops up quite a bit on the religious right circuit of speakers. The fact of the matter is, if you 'fake' being part of a religious group or organization, there are so many subtleties and complexities, in religious groups, that pulling this off is very difficult. Knowing the inner world of a religion is very different from studying it from the outside.

While normal people can make mistakes, memories especially over many years can fade, trying to present yourself as something you were not, will be found out.

As you can see in the articles exposing Caner, even the other Muslims stated he was not accurately describing things. That is where the subtle stuff comes in. How do you claim that you lived in one country years apart from when you actually were somewhere else? Or that you were a would-be teen Jihadist when your family lived in Ohio?

Back to what Nick VanderLaan went through, when one is facing charges this means expensive lawyers, incredible stress, and then there is the humiliating emotional and physical effects of being hustled off and arrested. One thing, Nick VanderLaan was not a stranger to this church, pictures are shown on the Eph 5:11 website of him next to Chuck Smith and having a child dedicated at a service with his wife. He was a known member but they treated him like dirt. There was no excuse for him being treated in this manner, he spoke out and was non- violent, and the speaker himself called for a response.

The charges thankfully were dropped and Nick was acquitted but this brings into question how these churches are operating, and how some are not hesitant to use the full boot of the state to get dissenting church members in line. There are things happening out there, where the control freak pastors are running their church fiefdoms like overlords intent on never being questioned and hustling off those who do say anything.

Here is a case in Michigan where a elderly woman, who disagreed with a new pastor, at a church she had attended for decades, was arrested and hauled off the property and charged with trespassing. Later charges would be dropped but she went through the humiliation of being deposited into the police car, in front of her church members. It looks like she was forced to leave her church in the end.

What kind of man has an elderly woman who can be no harm to anyone arrested for speaking out? There have been other cases such as a man hauled out of a church and arrested for complaining? Isn't that a bit overdone?

The false pastors are going to town where there is no mercy, no compassion, and treating church members with the utmost of disrespect. Spiritual abuse is a reality as well as the planned and purposeful intention to squelch dissent in the churches by any means possible. This may range from having church members sign 'contracts" or "covenants" to never disagree with the pastor or talk about matters with each other, usually what the pastors wrongly define as "gossip", to getting those arrested who do dare to speak out and tell the truth. I talked about these methods of control in this article: "Silencing Dissent in the Pews"

One thing with the false churches, and I wrote this article a long time ago, for persecution of Christians, church and state DO marry, and did so under the Roman system and are doing so today with the evangelical and other daughters obviously.

Those who do speak truth or who make stands, will be hustled away. The false pastors are invested in silencing those who do speak out or warn the brethren, if they can't discredit you, they will find other ways to shut you up. Cruelty and control at all costs is what matters to these types.

 Jesus warned about the "synagogues" [churches]  In this article, I pointed out, it will not just be GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS that oppress and persecute the Christian but THE CHURCHES, as warned by Jesus. This obviously was shown via Rome's Inquisitions, but will of course happen as we are in the last days, by the Roman influenced false church system.

"If you notice Jesus Christ did not just warn of governmental authorities oppressing a Christian, but also RELIGIOUS ONES."

 Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

Luke 12 11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

12For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

While in America, there is still some legal recourse left for defense though it is expensive to get charges dropped, pastors like this are not on the side of freedom and are supportive of police state mentalities and actions for control. These are the issues that have them running to call the police while abuses and such, go undealt with.  Notice what they call the cops over and then notice what they never report or hide.

What kind of country are we living in too where just saying something at a meeting and disagreeing with a speaker means the automatic reaction is to get someone arrested? That one floors me, and what of the people that sat and watched him get hustled away and handcuffed? That alone should tell you something has rapidly changed in our culture.

I am sure all those silent and shocked folks in the pews, all learned the false lesson to never speak out except one day it may be them getting arrested with fear and control ruling the day. It's too bad no one else stood up. That is a shame. I believe one should speak out whatever the risk. This is not a popular view nowadays obviously. What does the Bible tell us? Paul and the apostles spoke out and were arrested themselves. Those who speak out like Nick should be respected for their boldness.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

This is today's broken down apostate church, where the wicked rule, and the good who speak out are arrested. Don't think they don't know what they are doing, when they get someone arrested, it's training, for blind obedience for those who witness it, training to isolate, ostracize and or forcibly REMOVE anyone who speaks out for the truth and MAKE THEM PAY.  These church leaders speak of grace but offered absolutely none here.

With Nick VanderLaan, there could have discussion, he should have been allowed to speak out against Caner and inform the audience about what has been exposed and then let them do the research for themselves. There was no need to have him arrested. There was no need to force him for what he said into an expensive legal battle to clear his name. I will be praying for him and his family.

Family Research Council Leader Earns Roman Catholic Award

Remember the Family Research Council? I've posted on them before. Remember this is a group founded by James Dobson, now headed up by Tony Perkins who hired Boykin some time back? It is supported by a wide variety of evangelical and other churches and a "religious right" group that shows up in a variety of places. Do many evangelicals realize the Vatican influence with these politically involved religious right groups?

Family Research Council Fellow Awarded Pope Pius XI Award 
"Scholar Receives Recognition for "Building up of a True Catholic Social Science" 
ROME, Nov. 2, 2012 (Zenit.org).- A senior fellow and director of Marriage and Religion at the Family Research Council has been honored with the Society of Catholic Social Scientists' Pope Pius XI Award. 
A psychologist by profession, Ireland-born Dr. Patrick F. Fagan received the award on account of his "contributions towards building up of a true Catholic Social Science." 
Since 1995, The Society of Catholic Social Scientists has awarded the Pope Pius XI Award to scholars whose efforts have contributed to building up a true Catholic social science, resuming the charge given to Catholic scholars by Pius XI, who served as Roman Pontiff for 17 years until his death in 1939."

"The Marriage and Religion at the Family Research Council (MARRI), of which Dr. Fagan is senior fellow and director, is an institute that examines social science data in order to study the relationships among family, marriage, religion, community, and America's social problems. Family Research Council President, Tony Perkins made the following remarks on the award: Armed with a Ph.D. and many years of academic and professional experience, Pat's Marriage and Religion Research Institute, headquartered here at FRC, is on the leading edge of demonstrating that 'the social sciences well done cannot but illustrate the way God made man.'

"Pat's extraordinary work," Perkins continued, "which is devoted to understanding how the biblical model of the family sustains and strengthens culture and society, places him in the highest tier of American social scientists. "Congratulations, Dr. Fagan," concluded Perkins, "and keep up your important work."
