Hal Lindsey and Chuck Missler Skew Bible Prophecy



One sees the false Christian Zionism, with the founding of Israel. A secular nation same as all the others. It is not a Christian nation. It is run by the same Freemasons and the rest who themselves run the other nations. Let's hope those 350 Messianic Jewish fellowships he speaks of, are not deceived by Christian Zionism.

You will notice around 7:40 he says Babylon has to re-emerge. This is another deception, as if a special new "mideastern" nation or kingdom has to remerge. This ties into the deceptions with Isis in my opinion. Babylon is here now. Here you see the "spiritual" rendered pedantic. Babylon has to be a specific nation? The evils of Babylon rule over the entire planet NOW. Just look at the symbols in our media and by the way it is WORLD-WIDE. The Horus eyes for example appear in every nation.

  I notice Missler says that the time between the Rapture and the second coming of Christ will be expansive and lengthy? Why? This, I believe,  is to help deceive Christians who know some of their Bible and that the man of perdition must be revealed before the return of Jesus Christ.

One sees some indirect "date-setting", this always bothers me. I supposed timing something 20 years away is safe when you have reached your 80s, but it is still not what is mandated in scripture. Date-setters get themselves in trouble. I wonder myself how much lost faith has come about from the date-setters of the 1980s in evangelicalism since it's now 30 years later.

Lindsey continues stating [11:30] that he believes the ancient city of Babylon will be rebuilt. Is it impossible one could be to help the in the deception? But here scripture is wrested. Is the main endeavor here to point away from Rome and the spiritual fact the antichrist Pope holds sway over the earth and Babylon is in full tilt and already "ruling" on this earth. We don't need a new Saddam Hussein to make a new Babylon with hanging gardens for Babylon to rise up. Here too, "Babylon" could equal the new Islamic Caliphate the elites have planned for their civilization wars. Can you imagine a scenario where the Dominionists are told now is the time to fight "Babylon"?

Remember one thing I have always written, is the false evangelicals always POINT AWAY FROM THE POPE. They need to literalize Babylon to create an enemy for deceived Christians to "fight against" rather then to preach the gospel to. Of course they continue with more false pre-mill Rapture teachings which claim the church will be "snatched" out. Oddly Lindsey says this will happen before Babylon is rebuilt. This too is used as a blinder for many confessing Christians so they will not listen to those who warn of Babylon now which is the Babylon that rules over false churches and leaders.

 Lindsey around the 12:30 mark tells us "The Antichrist can't come until after the Rapture." This is another way to point away from the antichrist office of the Pope. It is also directly against scripture.

Thess 2:2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;


Here's a question for you all. How would the antichrist be revealed if the whole church is gone? Everyone without the Holy Spirit is supposed to be deceived by the Antichrist!

What's with those international friends he mentions around the 14:00 minute mark? They see trouble in other parts of the world but not the USA? Well those who can afford constant global travel are buffered a bit from American poverty. How in the world do you have to be outside the USA to see the police state here unless you are among the very privileged?

Some discussions about Obama's lack of a past ensure which are true. At 17:27, the "revived Roman Empire" is here now too. We don't have to "wait" for it. The royals swear allegiance to the Pope as the Holy Roman Emperor.

At the  23:00 mark, they bring up EMP. I need to research this more but sometimes I wonder if EMP is something else they just came up to frighten everyone with. I have been reading that one website that questions nuclear bombs, but still have not made my mind up on that issue. I can see the powers that be adding on the threats though in general.

He rightly warns of NDAA. Lindsey admits he has known Missler since 1972. Missler admits Lindsey helped him with sponsorship and encouragement at his start. Missler presents Hal Lindsey with one of his golden medallions at the end.

The Catholic and Orthodox church



The Great Schism of 1054, basically makes it clear the Orthodox church broke from the Catholic church. I kept asking my Orthodox commenters why they support ecumenical relations with Rome but they do not answer and insist there are many differences from Rome. Sure there are some different teachings, but then the ecumenical United Methodists have them too.  Surely the ones who read enough of this blog, have been warned of the Pope's wicked interfaith activities, this means their church is joined to the harlot. The Catholic church has sought "full unity" with the Orthodox churches for decades and are growing closer.



Warning: Orthodox video full of the idolatries of Rome and Eastern Orthodoxy but using to show information and the sameness among the 'differences'. There's a different flavor among them both but the main themes of false idolatry, empty actions and rituals, religious displays and elevation of clergy and religious theatre predominate. I had my fill of years of the empty Masses, incense and "processions" where man elevates himself. Notice how those poor deceived Orthodox men kiss the priests. Notice the "enlarged borders" warned against by Jesus in Matt 23:5 on the silken golden outfits of the Orthodox leaders in their processions. I think the giant "X" in the middle of the room is based on the "Cross of Peter". The Catholic Popes put out that upside down one, but "X" is also an occult symbol as well. One sees enough gold in this video to finance feeding endless poor people.

Since I came out of the Catholic church 12 and half years ago, I still have a heart for those trapped in false religion such as I was. They believe the rituals, sacraments will bring them closer to God. They won't, they lead to a false christ. Religious ritual imprison so many into their idea of what is "holy". Religious traditions and sacraments do not save. Religion does not save. Jesus Christ saves and "ye must be born again".



Mark 7:12 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Nursing Home Abuses




"They keep you starving in here... just get me out of this place': Grandmother, 89, filmed begging for food at crisis care home Edna Slann was filmed by her family amid fears she was being neglected The 89-year-old is seen telling her granddaughter she is 'starving' in video She is one of three residents left with unexplained injuries at care homes Grantley Court in Sutton and Merok Park in Surrey have both been closed

Pleading for help, Edna Slann reaches out to her appalled family in desperation.

‘I’m starving,’ she says. ‘I’m bloody starving. Have you got anything to eat here now?’

While dementia has left the 89-year-old muddled in many ways, she is certain about one thing.

‘Oh god. I want something to eat,’ she begs, in harrowing video footage that shames Britain’s care system.

They keep you starving in here. This is not me at all. This is not normal, these b******* here are not normal. I just want to get out of this place.’

Mrs Slann, a widow who has dementia and arthritis and needs a wheelchair, was moved in July from a residential home to Grantley Court Nursing Home in Sutton, south-west London.

Her family claims she was neglected from the outset and her health rapidly deteriorated.

They said she lost more than half a stone in two months and is now little over five stone and reliant on morphine to control her pain.

She suffered severe facial bruising and a gash to her head which needed 12 stitches and now has just weeks to live.

Mrs Slann was filmed on September 21 by her granddaughter Becky, after she and her mother Linda Cackett, a book keeper from Epsom in Surrey, became fearful she was being neglected.

In a horrifying video, Mrs Slann can be seen pleading for help, while touching a large cut on her head.

Shaking with desperation and rage, she tells her granddaughter: ‘I’m hungry. Have you got anything to eat here now? I’m bloody starving. They keep you bleeding starving in here.’

She can be seen shutting her eyes in despair, while saying: ‘Oh god. I want something to eat. I’m angry. Give me something to eat.’

After the food does not come, she is seen lowering her expectations.

‘I just want a cup of tea, that’s all I want. Get us a cup of tea.’ She is reassured by staff that her food will come in ‘just 15 minutes’.

Later, she says: ‘Whatever’s happened to me? They’re making me bloody mad.

‘This effing place. It drives me round the bloody bend here. They are all bloody nutcases. I just want to get out of this place.’

After staff discovered a bedsore on her foot, she was taken to hospital. When hospital staff called Grantley Court for an explanation, they were apparently told it was ‘not that bad’.

Doctors said the only way to stop the spread would be to amputate her leg, involving serious surgery which would probably kill her.

Mrs Slann, a grandmother-of- one, worked as a cleaner until she was 70. She was a ‘lively and happy grandmother’, according to her family. Her daughter said it was ‘terrible’ to see how she has suffered.

She added: ‘It is horrendous to think that she has suffered.

‘We filmed her because she kept saying she was hungry. We feel guilty we let her go to Grantley Court. It is hard to talk about but I am speaking out because no one should go through this.’

Mrs Slann’s stay at Grantley Court cost £595 a week, which was met by Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

A Surrey Downs CCG spokesman said she was relocated as soon as concerns were raised.

A Surrey council spokesman said when Mrs Slann was placed in Grantley Court the home had passed its most recent inspection."

This happened in Britain, but it's happening in America too. Do a search on "nursing home abuses" on Youtube and you can see a multitude of cases! Physical and other injuries do occur in neglectful nursing homes. Some homes are better then others, I am not saying all are abusive, but this is some of the hidden things going on in this country. The helpless elderly in this wicked world are very vulnerable.

One of my in-laws now deceased who was later taken home to be cared for by other relatives, was put in a nursing home and ended up with a broken arm. She was speechless via a stroke and could not tell anyone what happened to her.  They did not say she had fallen or anything like that but somehow her arm had ended up broken.

 If you are younger and have been on an extended hospital stay, you know a lot of places the staff is over-worked and over-extended. They do not give you medication at the right time. There was one hospital I was in, where I was asking the janitorial staff to help clean me up and get me things because the nurses were incognito. I tell people if your relative can't speak for themselves in the hospital, make sure you are there as much as humanly possible.

Well nursing homes with far more underpaid staff, the care can be deficient. Often all your rights disappear as a patient. Years ago, I had an older long distant friend, I wanted to go on a rescue mission of, because she was in the nursing home. She could not walk, and my place then was not wheelchair accessible, I wasn't able to help her and it still weighs heavily on me. I made all the phone calls I could and her son was there too but the son often was taking the side of the staff and seemed annoyed with what he called her "demands". One of those "demands" was simply being taken out of bed and put in a wheelchair. They would leave her in bed and not get her up.  We do live in a society where the old and sick are shoved away out of sight and out of mind. Even if you are young and ill, some wicked families will disown you or won't visit for years. They want you out of sight. While I had to depart from wicked relatives, one disabled one in thrall to one of the most wicked probably has gotten shoved away in a group home or other nursing home. She is mobile in this case.

Every disabled and other sick and aging person can attest that one of their greatest fears is ending up in a nursing home. There is a reason for this.

Many people do have to put elderly parents or ill family members in homes, I am not blaming people who must face this  hard choice, often the care needed is beyond their physical capabilities but please be careful what home or center you choose for your family members. Be mindful of their care and make sure they are being taken care of properly.  I tend to think the chances are better with a non-profit rather then a for-profit! Please pray for the elderly especially ones who are in nursing homes.

This Blog Will Soon Be Five Years Old

                            [picture cite]


This blog will soon be five years old in April.

I can't believe I have blogged here this long. Sometimes I almost ended the blog thinking I had run out of things to write about and then something new would come up.  Lately, I do get frustrated because of health and other things because my research time is far lesser but I have decided to keep this blog going as long as the Lord wills it.

I never talked about number and stats here not wanting to seek self-glory but this blog was read far more then I thought it would be. Blogging isn't always easy, sometimes it can be tiring, controversial, and you sometimes worry about what you have written, hoping it makes sense and is readable. Some people blog for only a season and I understand even if my blog is aging here. It is interesting to think of the changes in my Christian life even over the last 5 years and the things I learned doing this blog.  Many joys can come through blogging too such as in finding like-minded believers and speaking of truths especially on this blog, very few understand or even want to know about. Doing this blog has increased my love for God and His Word. While it sometimes can be tough warning of the delusions out there, because of the scary things involved, I don't regret any of it. I am glad I spoke up.

I hope and pray it did help people and brought them truth. I pray I was able to warn people too. I made the decision to do this blog after making the message board rounds back in the mid 2000s, when I was warning people of the one world religion and about the Catholic church's role. I hope God is pleased with my efforts, that is the most important. When I first started this blog I even asked "Why me?" When I first started I was reluctant, afraid to put these controversial stands out on the net. I suppose I have toughened up since then. The spiritual attacks were relentless in those early days too, but with God's help I was able to hold firm.

If you are newbie here, please read some of my older posts. Back then, I was doing some bigger picture articles, that many of the later ones were written to back up.  I am way behind on my labels and will try and update those.

Here is the first article I ever posted:

The One World Religion

Here is a sampling of some oldies:

"I Can't Wait for Armageddon!":The Deceptions of Christian Zionism

Five years is a lot longer run then I expected. Keeping praying for me.

Gray State Movie Controversy





Before death of family, Apple Valley filmmaker voiced struggles over project

"I'm not prone to suicide".

I posted this rather quickly yesterday, some commenters are right about the Illuminati symbols in the videos. I wondered yesterday why on earth is everyone getting a RFID chip with a pyramid in it? Also the name "Crowley" kind of has a history with it though that may not mean anything either. They always are warning about the "camps" on Alex Jones and other places. To be honest, lately I have been pondering ideas about some of the "conspiracies" they unload out there. Why do so many of the "controlled places" warn about the Fema Camps and "round ups?" What do you think?

 I also consider the fact that if this movie was the real deal, we would have never heard of it. There are "conspiracies" within the "conspiracies". Warning language on the movie. Sometimes I do post things I haven't made my mind up on. I know one thing, I am finding myself departing more from the "conspiracy" websites, while I definitely still hold to many beliefs that many consider "conspiracy" such as the lies surrounding 9-11, I know most are controlled. They are manipulating people via those endless levels with fear and more to a degree I feel at a loss of words in even writing about. You have to wonder about this society and where it is going.

It seems never ending. I found myself telling a friend in this life, "We all die one day, even if no Fema Camp get us." this why we better make sure we are right with God and have been born again.
One thing remember the wicked lie about everything and anything. They want us to live in fear. They can use political fear and predictive programming so badly on the masses and sometimes I think this whole thing in America where half the country expects the whole thing to collapse in a heap, and the others deny it all, is part of the plan to "wear" people out and "wear out the saints". Who knows the future but God and what we read in Bible prophecy?

Isaiah 8:12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.

Pope Attacks Free Speech



Remember the "order out of chaos" formula? Note about the video, Vigilant Christian is a bit rah-rah America, he must realize they plan to do away with freedom of speech here and have to a degree--I think he may have listened to too much David Barton, but the warnings about their future plans are true.

They will pass rules one day where "insulting" any religion [but biblical Christianity] will be against the law. Remember unlike America, in much of Europe you can go to jail for criticizing other religions.

Keep track of the UN and Islam with this stuff....that organization at the behest of the Pope is always pushing laws to outlaw freedom of speech. Remember we have freedom of speech under God not "granted" by any political entity.

Short Remarks on Charlie Hebdo




With Charlie Hebdo, the powers that be WANT the war of civilizationsthey used the unfettered Muslim immigration into Europe as a TOOL, and they are bringing forth the CLASH. Why has Europe been filled with  Muslim "no-go zones" under Sharia law?  Why is the immigration at such extreme levels? Why do the politicians ignore the will of their people?   Notice how Europe will be united against the Muslims for WWIII, with the war with Russia, Syria and Iran probably still in the plans. The "war on terror" is entering even further phases. Remember here they will rally the Dominionists and "right wing" troops too. I saw enough conservative websites where people were jumping on the "Je Suis Charlie bandwagon". One funny thing about that slogan, put the words together and take one letter out and it spells "jesus". Maybe that doesn't mean anything but in the language of psy-op it might.  Right and left converge more and more in weirder ways. Charlie Hebdo is a left-wing mag.

I went to go look at covers of Charlie Hebdo magazines, and the anti-"Christian" covers using false images of "jesus" and "god" and "catholic crucifixes" was beyond sickening. There is one, oh I can't even write what the cover showed it was so sick. Let's just say they mixed cartoons representing "Christianity" with sodomy!  I cannot post it here. If you do a google search of Charlie Hebdo and click images, you can see it. It is beyond disgusting. My knowledge of French culture is not very high, and it is also a Catholic country but there is no excusing that image. I looked at previous art too of Charlie Hebdo going back and the themes are the same.

With the cartoons that led the Muslims to violence, sexual innuendos and sodomy was a theme there too as they showed two male cartoon figures kissing in a homosexual fashion. It was like the cartoons were drawn to be as antagonizing as possible. There is no excuse for the shootings of course.

Murder and violence are evil, but what is really happening out there? One can see how these events will bring more calls for global unity and stronger world government  Some believe these events are being "used". . For this one, the European leaders all marched without Obama to protest extremism.

And the global summit on extremism was delayed and will be held soon.

Obama Declares War on "Extremists"

Two more years of Obama.....wonder if the nation will still be standing?

The other party of course is no good either.

Obama Declares War on "Extremists"

The above list is from the economic collapse blog, obviously some of the groups and politicians he lists are false.

Hmm that is quite a list. How many apply to me? How many apply to you, my reader? There are many I disagree with but many that would apply.  How many millions of Americans would these apply to? Notice they want to persecute for BELIEFS now not BEHAVIOR. So PEACEFUL people who don't think the "right" thoughts are on the chopping block". I have to go look up what the deal is with the GLOBAL "extremist" global summit. Notice the set up and the focus on Christian persecution. Of course keep in mind the NWO controls the "right wing" too, economic collapse blog has many good articles, but there's a few blind spots,  it's kind of funny that Knights of Malta heavy Family Research Council makes the list.

The Vanity-Vainglory Society



Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through stife or vainglory; but in the lowlieness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Vain glory is defined thusly

1. excessive elation or pride over one's own achievements, abilities, etc; boastful vanity

2. empty pomp and show.

Vanity of course goes along with this.

Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind.


Vanity is defined thusly [dictionary.com]

1.  excessive pride in one's appearance, qualities, abilities, achievements, etc; character or quality of being vain; conceit:

2.  an instance or display of this quality or feeling.

3.  something about which someone is vain

4.  lack of real value; hallowness; worthlessness: the vanity of a selfish life

5. something worthless, trivial, or pointless

Doesn't the above describe this world? Empty pomp and show, endless bragging? Endless focus on winning the achievement contest?

We live in the world that has become the selfie kingdom and land of the self-loving narcissists. Everything is about showing off. Everyone wants to be a celebrity! Do you remember the time before when someone could just be an average person and be okay and they didn't have to be a star to prove worth? Today people fall all over each other to be "seen". Everything is about achievement and success, and showing off those achievements. Everything is about showing off conformity and the hoops one has jumped through. Yesterday I did an article on the Duggars and their vainglory for their love of fame, but this stuff isn't just affecting the big names but infusing through society like a poison.

I was raised in a very wicked family where just being there, wasn't enough. Your dignity as a human being had to be bought via success and money otherwise you were nobody and nothing. Honest labor didn't count if you didn't make enough. What you owned and what you could show counted for the most. They literally followed the "Those who Die with the Most Toys Win" ethos.  They are not Christians and hated the fact I became one. As I have mentioned on this blog before, I departed from these family members. I am college degreed and had some semi-professional jobs including the ones I did with violent youth, but got sick. My husband had massive lay-offs in a dying industry. For being poor we became non-persons in this family network. There's far more details to the story but I was ostracized and hated by my upper middle class family for not achieving a certain class status.  My mother actually once told me that I was a failure, this was after I was saved, and yes this was based on my material lacks. Being ill among Satan's sharks by the way brought forth no mercy. The wicked of this world live for vanity and vainglory.

Ecc 5:10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase; this is vanity.

However being a Christian took me to a far different place. Their lives were vain. They put material possessions as the top and foremost thing in their lives. One relative of mine even recently knowing I do not celebrate Christmas and am of humble means, sent me a photo online of 60-70 presents he had bought, he had a giant pile of presents around his Christmas tree. There had to be at least a few thousand dollars represented in this Christmas shopathon. To some this would be crass behavior, but to him this was normal. "Look what I could afford!"

I remember being in high school and crying because I was not a straight A student, I was an A-/B+ student. There was one time I brought home a report card with 6 As on it and one B+ in the 5th grade. My father actually said to me, "What's with the B+?". Nothing was ever good enough. We have a society now being run by abusive wicked parents otherwise known as the global elites, who do not promote good character but conformist serfdom that demands jumping through endless hoops. Here their chosen pets get a few more bennies and they form societies with giant underclasses and "throwaway" people.  People are crushed as "losers", "worthless" unless they have a perfect body, and their thoughts conformed to the mainstream. They are told to "pull themselves" up by their bootstraps and that they are human refuse for failing to do so, as the global elite cleans out the tills. This is one trend in society seriously worrying me. Sadly many of the people tossed overboard aren't connecting with each other, they are still aspiring to the world they were cast out of.

Proverbs 30:8  Remove far from me vanity and lies: given me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me.

Love of riches and wealth is a major part of this vanity. Our society has grown worse in this regard. Have you noticed how everyone is all wealthy on TV and in our other media? No one in the lower classes is even shown anymore. Working class people have been erased from the airwaves. There is a reason for this. They need to have the poor ignore each other thinking they are the "only ones" and personally responsible for all of their own failures. The Disney land dreams stay more intact when being poor supposedly is from personal failure even with shows like Drugs Inc. and 48 Hours showing the direct rot of our cities. The New Age stuff helps run this engine with books like "The Secret" informing people they are suffering because they didn't think the right thoughts.

Everything becomes about status and running up the hill. Status seems to be the highest good now to many.  In the world, I watch people back-stab each other to acquire status and to be "seen".  They no longer make friends, they network. They aspire. They all want to make names for themselves. Even charities are full of people doing good works not for the implicit meaning of helping others, but to gain standing.  They operate according to Satan's rules of trashing other people and trying to remove the people they see as the "weakest" link. This is some of the stuff that leads people right into Satan's arms as they close down conscience and lie to acquire power.  The constant strife and squabbling can give you a headache. One reason I believe the USA economy is failing is because in the work place, people are more busy trying to play one-upmanship rather then innovate or work. Too many friends tell me how they are "investigating" so and so, and how the personality games never end at their work places.

Here you see people treating life like it is a fill up your resume' contest. Who's better then who? Who got more done? Who's on more committees? Who's been the most places? I have to admit being a person of more humble means when I am around careerists who see life as nothing but for resume building. I want to throw up. When I moved from a rural area to a more affluent area, I have to admit this was something very difficult to contend with.

What happens in a society where everything is a competition? Some right wingers may slap their chests and tell me, "Competition is healthy, you commie!", but I am not talking about business innovation but competition that cuts and trashes, where other human beings are simply seen as being in the way to be thrown away and weeded out. Social Darwinism that cancels out altruism and the modern Hunger Games contests determines who is considered worthy. Even our work world is based on the weeding out process. America is going to a very sick place where a thin sliver of elites are the only ones who are employable in jobs that can actually pay the bills.

When did life become a vain game of musical chairs where the "in crowd" gained so much control? When did we get to the point where human beings were denied worth in God and had to constantly prove themselves according to a long list of false rules?

When did we get to the point where only the "stars" count? Where being ordinary individuals with love and connection with others no longer counts? Our society has grown more wicked and far more narcissistic via the love of vanity. The long lists of broken people who have been given crazy dreams that only a very few achieve are immense. For every "winner" there's a hundred "losers" sitting broken hearted, despairing and dejected.  For every "beautiful woman", there are hundred plainer ones who feel ignored and despondent if they do not have the love of God. You ever wonder why the suicide and depression rates are skyrocketing? This is part of the reason. Being a person just being themselves isn't enough anymore to this wicked world. They are handed false aspirations and the vanity of seeking after material possessions and worldly enjoyments instead of God's Will. "All is vanity". It's true.

I think when someone becomes a Christian and you get seasoned along the way, your view of this world tilts. What others consider the highest ideals become emptiness to you. It means nothing in the face of eternity and yes it does become hollow. Perhaps you relate to me in that feeling you get watching the world go by, thinking "It's so empty!". We don't want to give in to despair or say everything is meaningless, but a lot of this world is empty. It's dead inside. It means nothing in the long term. Sometimes you wake up look out and think, "I simply can't stand this place!" This is one thing that actually will create a chasm between you and the non-believing world.

I feel the pressure of vanity in my own life. I am not perfect. Having the family I had, sometimes I have had the thought, "When am I going to be somebody?" It is a thought that filters in. I had the pressure for years thinking if only I could have some great success or achievement maybe my family would love and accept me, today I care most about my relationship with God. To survive this world, often I have to go to God's Word and ask "What is important to God?" A lot of the wicked buried in vanity will seek to judge you and destroy you. If you are humble means, they will call you a "loser". You will feel lost and lonely among people who no longer can love, nor connect. You will see doors slammed in your face by the vain, who don't want any realness or authentic people around them. Avoid vain persons if you can as much as possible. Psalm 26:4. They bring a person pain.

I see this mentality with the Duggars. If one child "fails", woe to that poor kid unless they obtain a relationship with God to help them out! Their children and grown adult children are beautiful, they are seen as the perfect people to aspire by naïve Christians, but those naïve Christians miss biblical training and what God thinks as they elevate this family where appearances count for so much. My fear for the Duggar children as individuals rests in the harm that can come in a narcissitic family where vanity is held up as the highest goods, where success, achievement, fame and looks is everything. All the Duggar daughters are beautiful, and one knows the pressure is on to be thin and "look a certain way". In false churches and cults, physical beauty, appearances, wealth and success become the greatest good.  People fall down before the vanity of this world growing more distant from God. Their religion becomes one of self elevation.

 We see this in our society, looks count the most. But it's all through out society. Look at the false pride based on looks, wealth, fame. God is no longer honored but the self. When one sees vain people who have embraced the shallowness of the world, something odd seems to happen to them. They act like everything here will last forever. Eternity seems to fade for them and life here in this world becomes everything. They never think of the good times ending. They ignore the fact they may be getting their reward here instead of later. They are also cruel to those who have stepped off the treadmill. Vanity leads to destruction and we live in a society that is far more vain then ever.

Did the Duggars Sell Their Souls for Fame? Vainglory is to be Avoided!


I saw this on a website called "Fake Josh Duggar". It's Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar before their wedding and is originally from their public Instagram.  I suppose some would say they are doing the ASL symbol for "I love you" and maybe they don't know any better. One always likes to hope for the best, but since this horus hand sign is so universal among celebrities, one ponders the other possibility too.

 More and more I do not think the Duggar family is just some deceived folks caught up in the fame machine, but something darker. I do not think all the children young or grown are in on the deal, the parents definitely are, but their increasing fame seems more sinister to me. Even non-believers are writing articles noticing their severe hypocrisy and asking if they have sold their souls. 




The Duggars Sold Their Souls To Be Celebrities, So Good Luck To Them When They Arrive In Heaven

"I don’t know. There’s just something slightly hypocritical to me about making a big stink about guarding your children from the evils of media as well as the general human population — and then turning around and making insane amounts of money off of the media as well as those humans you’ve deemed inferior to your family. Their TV series, 19 Kids and Counting, was bad enough when it came to this. But the recent deluge of family news in the mainstream (yeah, I said it) media crosses the line. What line? I don’t know. I’m a writer, not a geometrist. Just know that the line’s been crossed. Everyone’s at fault. Except Jinger Duggar, for obvious reasons. (Run baby gurrrlll, runnnnnnn)
Last week we joked about the Duggars becoming Kardashians, but this week it seems more true than ever.
I have noticed their fame seems to be growing. The love of the world is basically what fame is. Fame is a destructive task master. We know for those who rise to the top in this world, sold souls are part of the price. Connections float the fame boat too. The hypocrisy of inviting the world to your door while you are pretending you want to be a holy Christian is beyond the pale. 

The girls are hitting People magazine covers and appearing in more places then they used to. When I wrote my earlier Duggar articles, the show was still on the fringes and seemed destined to die, now it seems they forming a supposed "Christian" family entertainment dynasty. I believe this will damage all the children in the long run. America loves to see it's celebrities fall and crash. What one hasn't? Think about it. 

Vainglory is a word that appears in the Bible. We are to avoid it as much as strife. What does vainglory mean?

Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Here is what the dictionary tells us.

vainglory


[veyn-glawr-ee, -glohr-ee, veyn-glawr-ee, -glohr-ee] 


noun
1.
excessive elation or pride over one's own achievements, abilities, etc.;boastful vanity.
2.
empty pomp or show.

The seeking of fame for fame's sake is contrary to the Christian gospel! If someone writes a book, or achieves something in your field, I am not going to say that is wicked. You are not dishonoring God appearing in your local newspaper or having a book published. But what about seeking attention for attention's sake? What about being famous? What about the "me first" ethos of modern fame and appearing on the cover of People magazine? The Duggars are breaking biblical precepts! 

Vainglory is a risk for all of us. This world is operating in a very dark way via vainglory. I think people who are more humble today suffer more now, because just being an ordinary person who loves God isn't enough, you are to aspire to a pile of selfies and fame and being "noticed". I have noticed this happening on the lower level of human contact. Even with families and organizations, we see the special standing out while many are ignored. Everything becomes a competition with the more popular, gifted and "noticed" scrambling to the top and the humble and quiet ignored and abused. Vain glory is a poison, poisoning our families, and culture. I want to write more about Vainglory itself tomorrow.

Elite Sex Abuse Rings Being Exposed?






Many know the depths of evil in this world go deep, and these evils include sex abuse. It is not just a number of members of the Catholic clergy participating in these dark acts. It is mysterious why so many are being exposed right now. They started with Bill Cosby and now more are being added to the list. I do not know the guilt or innocence of any of these individuals, but many have come out and warned of the pedophile rings and sex abuse and trafficking that happens in elite circles. The news about Prince Andrew still seems buried on back pages. Sad how many are led to kneel and curtsey before these wretched people. The evils that are proven about them are bad enough. Keep in mind with many of these reports some will be playing deflection.

Jesuits Joining the Grahams OCC



[note: I do not agree with him on some things including the Rapture but he has some good exposes]

All the false churches participate in OCC, I am not surprised the Jesuits have joined in now. He discusses the involvement with Bishop Zubik, I posted about that before too.
