Important Election [3]

#320: Hello again folks! My good friend Derek Bennett has posted a very interesting blog this week regarding some recent statement[s] made by one Charlie McCreevy; Ireland's EU Commissioner:

Basically Mr. McCreevy has stated that every political leader in Europe knows full well that a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty [a.k.a. the EU constitution] would have been rejected by 95% of the 27 member states and that their attitude [in refusing referendums in each of the EU member states] to its potential rejection by most of us rank and file European 'serfs' is "realistic and understanding". He also said that this "realistic" approach adopted by European leaders has led to them offering to assist Ireland as much as possible as the Irish government faced a second referendum on the treaty:

In other words, because most EU 'citizens' do not want an EU 'Beast' superstate; the movers and shakers behind "the project" dare not give the general populace the chance to demonstrate their democratic will. They have therefore resorted to good 'ol bribery and spin to 'persuade' our friends in the Irish free state to fall in line with their original intention by offering some 'concessions'.

It's the usual tactic employed by a budding dictatorship: Keep holding elections &/or referendums until you get the result you wanted in the first place! True democracy, however, is the other way around. This is indeed 'Important Election [3]' of 2009. And it is perhaps the most significant and important one too after the Israeli and EU parliamentary polls. Watch this space folks!

Deception is rising. Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Reptilian Presidente?

#319: Hello again folks! July is nearly upon and so is the silly season! I like this clip showing President Barack Hussein Obama's infamous slaying of a fly during a recent television interview in the US:
This is no way an endorsement of the strong rumour that this, let us say, interesting man is the first black, muslim, REPTILIAN President of the USA. But he did focus in and target that insect with the guile of a coiled cobra - didn't he?

But there is a glossing over going on in the mass media and politics in general over his eligibility and credentials to be the President of the United States of America. It's worth you investigating this issue for yourselves. Take a look at these links:

Deception is the name of the game in the run-up to and during the Tribulation. Jesus warns about the growing culture of lies, delusion and deception four [4] times as much as He does about other 'signs of the [end] times' in the Olivet Discourse [Matthew 24-25]. Best we sit up and take notice. America is not an end-time world power so she may well diminish soon ... and this man may be the talisman of that decline. Who knows what lies ahead? Only God knows the FULL picture. We only know, at best, IN PART - as in a dark mirror - as children [see I Corinthians 13:9-12].

Regina Spektor

#318: Hello again folks! I've now played my copy of the new Regina Spektor album: "Far" a couple of times now. Although, I suspect that its chart impact is going to be severely dented in that the record-buying public are buying out the Michael Jackson back catalogue.

This album is one of those releases that grow on you. I have to say I quite like it. Of the fifteen tracks on the CD; five [5] are produced by Jeff Lynne. But this record is FAR from being a 'Full Moon Fever' or 'Mystery Girl'.

Of course, the JL produced tracks are self-evident. And they sound great. This Russian Jewess has put out out a quirky album and it reminds me of Kate Bush; Tori Amos and Suzanne Vega all rolled into one! The odd thing about "Far" is that the two songs that I have latched onto and really like are ""Laughing With" and "Human Of The Year" - neither are produced by Jeff Lynne! Here are some lyrical excerpts from those songs:

"No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one’s laughing at God When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor No one laughs at God When the doctor calls after some routine tests No one’s laughing at God When it’s gotten real late And their kid’s not back from the party yet No one laughs at God When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake No one’s laughing at God When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else And they hope that they’re mistaken No one laughs at God When the cops knock on their door And they say we got some bad news, sir No one’s laughing at God When there’s a famine or fire or flood"
"Human, human of the year, you are. Human, human of the year, you are. Why are you so scared? You stand there shaking in the pew. The icons are whispering to you, they're just old men, like on the benches in the park, except their balding spots are glistening with gold. Human, human of the year, you are. Human, human of the year, you are. Ahh ah ah. You have won. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah"

I need to listen to this album a few more times but I think the lyrics and music of Regina Spektor are as good as, if not better, than some of the 'major'; mainstream artistes. There is definitely a spiritual nature to some of her songs. Not surprising given that she is Jewish and has such a long heritage and cultural footprint. www.youtube.com/watch?v=rov3pV9PsRI

In this fallen world; there is a still a faint glimmer of the musical gifting that God bestowed on humankind in the Garden. Please note that this is not the same [spiritual] gifting of worshipful musicianship that God imparts upon second birth; to whom He wills. Sometimes when I listen to the music of 'the world', of course I think it better that the gifts they were exercising in the natural were being used for the purposes of God. But music in and of itself is His creation too! Therefore, if you fancy taking a chance and listening to something 'different' - this is my 'pick'.

Be Bereans, watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Michael Jackson

#317: Hello again folks! The death of Michael Jackson is indeed a shocking and sad moment. A man who never grew up but spent his adult life trying to re-discover his lost childhood. A man who lived in a kind of bubble. A great dancer and singer/songwriter. I still remember cramming into a friends front room in the summer of '84 to watch the 'Thriller' video and how it was made.

There is only one [1] thing that I would like to say - or rather re-state - with regard to this occurrence. That; as with some of the sad losses I have experienced in my life and in particular this year; we never seem to appreciate what we have until it's gone. Whether that is a person or a 'thing' or a special time. Life is short and eternity is forever. I'm still having a little trouble believing that Kelly Groucutt has gone and so too my Uncle Charlie - this year alone. The only scripture that comes to mind at this moment - to me - is this:
"And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment" [Hebrews 9:27 - NASB]
Death is a fact of life. We never appreciate what we have most times until it leaves our lives. The events today in Los Angeles have underlined this truth to me. It is my soundtrack for 2009.

Spare a Thought

#316: Hello again folks! Even though we all know that December 25th is definitely NOT the true birth date of the LORD Jesus Christ [I firmly believe that He was born during the Feast of Tabernacles; some time during our months of September/October]; I still cannot believe that today it is only now six [6] months to another 'Christmas Day'! Of more importance today however is the fact that it is now three [3] years since Sgt. Gilad Shalit [now 22] was seized by palestinian terrorists in a cross-border raid into Israel; launched from Gaza:

Of all the 'major' headline grabbing stories being offered by the mass media today; there has been no mention [surprise; surprise] of the plight of this young man. It is not even 100% certain that he is still alive or that he is being treated under the conditions of the Geneva Convention as his life is attempted to be bartered away by islamic 'fundamentalists' seeking the early release of their criminal cohorts is Israeli jails. Whether he is Jewish or not; this situation is a disgrace and yet another condemnation of the utter ineptitude of the United Nations - who never cease to go after Israel but NEVER her neighbouring mortal enemies. We need to pray for this man; his family; his government; his country and even his captors/enemies. God is still in the business of performing [true] miracles folks!

Please Pray for Yacov Prasch!

#315: Hello again folks! Please be advised that Yacov Prasch has been taken ill in South Africa recently. Sally Richardson has alerted me to this bulletin that I'm reproducing exactly for your kind consideration:


Jacob Prasch has been released from hospital in Cape Town, South Africa after two days to where he was rushed. He must return for further tests and be medivaced back to the UK for further treatment by a British cardiologist once his atrial fibrillation is stabilised and he is deemed able to fly.

Fortunately, the x-rays and scans indicate that the phlebitis does not contain a thrombosis, and there is no permanent heart damage. However, the heart is marginally enlarged and the fibrillation , whilst now under control, continues.

His condition was uncontrolled hypertension with atrial fibrillation. A stroke was narrowly averted. Had he flow to Bangkok via Nairobi as scheduled, his physicians doubt he would have escaped a likely fatal stoke mid-air on a long intercontinental flight.

Fortunately, noticing the symptoms of phlebitis in his ankles, he consulted with his friend Dr. Hilda Podlas, who rushed him to hospital immediately. The condition appears to have been precipitated from the cumulative affect of apnia, and the renal side-effects of medication he is required to take for his neck injury. The cardiologists report that contributing factors are matters of life-style , especially a gruelling work-travel schedule. He has been ordered to cancel all long air flights and speaking engagements for at least one month, when his condition will be reassessed. Moriel has thus been compelled to cancel all Jacob Prasch speaking engagements until the end of July.

On Jacob's behalf, we profoundly apologise to those in Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand expecting to attend Jacob's meetings. On behalf of Jacob, also we express our sincere gratitude for your prayers at this time when Danny Isom was also hospitalised with kidney failure.

The cardiologist used the term "divine intervention". Both specialists agreed that had Jacob gone to Asia as scheduled, he would have suffered a very serious stroke and quite likely would not have survived. We see this as God's intervention that Jacob noticed the discoloration in his ankles, and that Dr. Podlas [a Jewish neuro-radiologist who came to faith through Jacob's ministry] happened to attend the church meeting where Jacob was speaking at the Reformed Evangelical Church in Cape Town.

Again, we sincerely regret the forced necessity of the cancelled events and praise The Lord for His Providence and the prayers and good wishes of His people.


As usual; God is in control. His Will be done. I have always been blessed by the ministry that the LORD has gifted him with. Needless to say; I'm sure that you will join me in praying for his recovery and for his family and ministry associates.

Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Another Sign of the Times

#314: Hello again folks! A 'Happy Fathers Day' to you too! There are all kinds of things happening concurrently, either gradually or totally, fulfilling the revealed prophetic Word of God - whether they are reported via the normal mass media news channels - or not. I am always telling folks to keep an eye on Israel and specifically Jerusalem; that is one of the givens with respect to end times theology [also known as eschatology]. But there are other 'signs' that the LORD Jesus Christ warned us here today about in these days:

In Matthew 24-25; Mark 13 and Luke 21 we have the record of what is known as the 'Olivet Discourse' [in other words; the words of Jesus uttered on the Mount of Olives just before He completed the Work of His Father]. Much is made [and quite rightly] of the warning signs of the end times. These include increasing earthquakes; pestilences [diseases; epidemics]; hatred; ethnic rivalry and, of course, four [4] times as much as all the other 'signs': deception.

One other sign that we have all got used to hearing about - a kind of 'normal' headline - particularly since 'Band Aid' in 1984 is famine and starvation. In the above link; it is being reported that there are now one billion [that's 1,000,000,000] souls in this world are starving and undernourished. That's roughly one sixth [1/6] of population earth. A sad fulfillment of one of the 'signs of the times' that is overlooked as we focus on other things that are going on. On the other hand; Jesus is coming back soon; every morning we awake in, His return is one [1] day nearer! We need a holy balance when we drink in and breathe in the current world machinations.

We mustn't forget the widows; the hungry and the call for True justice while we [sometimes] go around proclaiming: "We told you so!". End time scriptures are one of the most effective True Gospel calls to all folks. Every word of His Word urges repentance and reconciliation to the Father of Lights in some degree. And, yes, it does warn about what is coming upon us too. It's all about correct balance. There is more than one layer to God's Word. Maybe these wise words of Solomon are on more than one [1] level:

"A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, But a just weight is His delight." [Proverbs 11:1; NASB]

This blog was intended to be going in a different direction but, once again, we are where we are at for good reasons. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and may God bless you.

#313: Hello again folks! Hidden amongst all the 'news' that we [us 'serfs'] are all allowed to digest such as the MP expenses scandal but not [apparently] Barack Hussein Obama's questionable credentials to legally be US President [for example] is this news story:

It is an article about a convert to islam who was 'radicalized' and was caught plotting a 'terrorist' attack. What is interesting is that this sorry tale is about a young English man; Andrew Ibrahim [who now calls himself Isa Ibrahim]. He was overhead by a prison officer stating that the only law that he recognised is the law of allah and that the prison officers who were holding him 'unlawfully' should be killed; as should all infidels. This article again demonstrates the true fruit of islam. Not 'fundamentalist' or 'radicalized' islam ... but the real islam. This young man is only following the koran; the hadith and the spoken traditions of islam to the letter. And this is the danger we all face from the islamification of Europe or as it can also be termed: Eurabia. Remember that Germany may well be majority muslim by 2040 if current demographic trends continue. The jihadic conquest of the West will be won by the birth rate ultimately and not by mission. Remember too the words of Victor Mordecai [a.k.a. Avi Lipkin]: "Bring them [muslims] to the LORD before they bring you to the sword."

Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel. And last [but not least]; to quote the LORD Jesus Christ: "Take heed that no one deceives you!" [Matthew 24:4]

The Hegelian Dialectic

#312: Hello again folks! Tonight; whilst channel hopping; I came across a talk by a gentlemen named Ian R Crane entitled "Hidden Agenda". Ian; although he is evidently not a Christian; is one of that band of new-agers with 'alternative beliefs' [a la David Icke] who, although wrong in some [critical] areas; they nevertheless specialize and hit the target on subjects that Christians have a vested interest in. Mr. Crane mentioned a number of key words that got my attention during his talk. They were the acronym 'NWO' [new world order]; the term 'watchers' [as often quoted in the 'Book of Enoch - more on that subject in a forthcoming blog] and the philosophical premise: 'The Hegelian Dialectic'.

I remember good 'ol Barry Smith often quoting the Hegelian Dialectic in his books and talks especially when the goals; aims and diabolical devices of the Illuminati and NWO were addressed. The Hegelian Dialectic works like this; it is a three [3] stage theorem: the first stage is thesis; the second stage [the reaction to the 'thesis'] is the antithesis and the third stage is the 'solution' to the tension between the thesis and antithesis and it is called synthesis thus:Thesis [proposition - i.e. unionism in Northern Ireland]
  1. Antithesis [opposition- i.e. Irish republicism]
  2. Synthesis [compromise - i.e. devolution]

The Hegelian Dialectic is a well used weapon of the NWO. It is currently in play with regard to the [so-called] 'Road Map to Peace' or 'International Peace Plan' of 'Two-State Solution' being 'proposed' for Israel and the Palestinians:

  1. Thesis - Israeli nationalism
  2. Antithesis - palestinian nationalism
  3. Synthesis - the [so-called] 'Two-State Solution'

The Hegelian Dialectic is being used and will continue to be used regarding major modern controversies such as 'climate change'; the international financial crisis; the rise of the EU; the empowering of the UN [both politically and religiously et al. It's a way of dividing and conquering by compromise. Especially when the thesis and antithesis are partly or wholly manufactured to produce the synthesis [in other words: the outcome that the NWO wanted in the first place].

Although believers need to be very wary of trawling new age web-sites, even for 'christian' subject matter; provided you are a Berean, provided you are being led by God; provided you are utilizing the whole armour of God and provided you know your Bible - there are very good investigations into the NWO; natural medicine; 9/11; freemasonry; 7/7 and numerous other 'conspiracy theories' [remember that some of these are most definitely facts!] that are of some value. All these machinations highlight the level of diabolical control of this present darkness by the prince of the power of the air and his minions. And of course; the absolute best sources are always the Living Word [Lord Jesus Christ] and the written Word [Holy Bible] and the ultimate counsellor: Holy Spirit.

Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

#311: Hello again folks! This short blog is intended to inform you you about a new blog just started by Christine Hall; the wife of David Hall; and our good friends over in Cyprus who also run the Living Waters Ministries Cyprus blog. It is entitled Hearing The Masters Voice and can be found here:

I have also added it to the links section opposite. And, as I've mentioned before; Dave and Chris Hall were Jehovah's Witnesses for 50 years and have a tremendous ministry and are divinely appointed partners of the Sinclair clan. Here is the testimony/introduction from Chris' new blog:

"I was born in Cheam, Surrey near London, England and was raised as a Jehovah's Witness and laboured in that religion for 52 years. I was born into the religion and finally left in 2001. I am now a Born Again Christian and have total faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I believe that we are living in 'end times' as spoken of in Daniel and Revelation and I know that Israel which is not far from us, will be the catalyst that sparks off the final showdown with satan and our dear Lord. I believe that our Lord Jesus Christ [Yeshua] will call his sheep to meet him in the air and will become his true bride. Since becoming a Christian I have been given many prophetic words for people that have come true. I have also had a number of visions that have resulted in us moving to Cyprus, a place that I hated when I first came here in 1995. I trained in Complimentary Medicine and have helped 1000's of people with health problems, but I now prefer to do the work of the true Master - Yeshua."

So please take the time to visit Chris' blog to bless both her and your good selves!

5,000 Years of History in 90 Seconds

#310: Hello yet again folks! My good friends Dave and Chris Hall of Living Waters Ministries Cyprus [livingwatersministiescyprus.blogspot.com] sent me this informative and interesting presentation the other day. It is entitled "A 5,000 year history lesson in 90 seconds" and I think that this is a really good overview of Middle East history:

For those of you familiar with the fulfilled prophecies of Daniel and history in general; it is a great tool to teach adult and child alike. You can see the muslim Caliphate expansion and the end of the Ottoman empire in 1917 [also the year of the Balfour Declaration]; the rise and fall of Babylon; Assyria; Rome; Greece and the modern day miracle of the creation of the Israeli state in 1948. With so much of history in general being re-written by revisionists and islamic 'teaching'; it is imperative that we in the West get a hold of real and true historical facts.

The Uncomfortable Definition of an Infidel

#309: Hello again folks! My sister-in-law sent me this interesting piece today. She is not a Christian. Please read it for yourself. You have been warned by this writer many times and others [even the BNP!]. Germany will have a majority muslim population by 2040 based on current demographic trends. When you are warned once; then twice and then ten times - then it's time to wake up; sit up and smell the coffee:
This is very powerful message and lesson to learn for all non-muslims, you have to think about your future generation.
The Uncomfortable Definition of an Infidel ... allah or the Lord Jesus Christ?
The muslim religion is by far the fastest growing religion in the UK. Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the islamic imam had to say. The imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the imam and asked: 'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, [which is a command to all muslims] they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!' I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?' The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.' He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.' I then stated, 'Well, I have a real problem trying to imagine pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'
The imam was speechless! I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your 'friend' when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?' You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam remained speechless.
Needless to say, the organizers and promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with this way of dealing with the islamic imam and exposing the truth about the muslims' beliefs. Within twenty [20] years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.K. to elect a government of their choice, complete with sharia law. I think everyone in the U.K. should be required to read this, but with the liberal justice system, liberal media and political correctness madness, there is no way this will be widely publicised. Please pass this on to all your e-mail contacts.

P.S. This incident happened in London
I do not wish to or need to add any further comment to the above.

The Long Game

#308: Hello again folks! At first glance it appears that the speech by Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday offered major concessions to the Palestinians and was a betrayal if not a complete U-turn of his election pledges. One might have thought that the infinite pressure being placed on Israel by President Mubarack Hussein Obama had succeeded. But I think not. Today's reactions from the PA and other 'interested' parties are very negative describing the Israeli PM's speech as a killer blow to the [so-called] 'peace' process. Mr. Netanyahu stated that the conditions for a [so-called] 'Two-State solution' included [a] a demilitarized Palestinian state; [b] full recognition of Israel as a Jewish state and [c] Jerusalem to remain undivided eternal capital of Heretz Israel:

The above three [3] 'demands' are not unreasonable. Especially if you are surrounded by hostile religio-political entities and states who openly seek your destruction either by military, political or demographic means [or all three at the same time]; and your [so-called] 'friends' in the West are in the process of [again] selling you out for devious motives - smiling in your face but stabbing you in the back concurrently; then you have to play the long game. Anyone who thinks that you could have a fully militarized state alongside the tiny nation of Israel [only 1% of the arab land mass] - reducing its width in one area to just eight miles - and ensuring that it could never defend its borders - is living in cloud cuckoo land. And that you could believe that a palestinian state that teaches its toddlers to hate and kill Jews as a norm could maintain its credibility with the islamic bloc by agreeing to any deal that comprises its core islamic beliefs and protects its nemesis is fallacious too. But you cannot stop the Word of God being fulfilled. One day; the powers that be will, by hook or by crook, divide Jerusalem and the land thereby invoking the judgement of God [Joel 3:2]. That means that either Netanyahu will be compromised [somehow]; or removed [anyhow] or he is an Illuminati/NWO mole working to a plan. Who knows? God does and He is in control anyway. I do personally admire Netanyahu [he knows the threat of true islam] and the more I see and hear what he does and says; the more I fear for him. Not all conspiracies are theories - some are fact. I hope and I pray that Netanyahu is not being set up something akin to an assassination [like Rabin] or a sudden personal catastrophe [like Sharon]. But the way things are flowing over in Israel; one cannot but think that something dramatic needs to happen for the false, man-made peace plan to be agreed and implemented. And that's without factoring in the events occurring in Iran - of which I'm sure will be blamed in no small measure by the Iranian authorities on the palestinian issue and the Zionist entity - as they call it. One thing is for sure. The events in Iran and Israel will transpire to completely fulfil the prophetic Word of God; in His time. We may be surprised but He never has been and never will be. But we should be led by His Word and we should use our God-given intelligence to read the signs of the times. the key to understanding where we are in the prophetic clock is to keep our eyes on Israel ... to note Psalm 83 and pray as per Psalm 122 [amongst others!].

Iran, Islam & Democracy

#307: Hello again folks! We have been surprised when the poll pundits and analysts call the wrong result in an election. But they are usually, at maximum, accurate to within 5%. For example, there was a major 'surprise' with the 1992 General Election result here in the UK and the 2000 US Presidential election result [especially in the state of Florida]. On the other hand; there were no surprises in the recent EU election with UKIP coming second or Netanyahu forming a government in Israel.

But there seems to be a variation on the meaning of 'democracy' with the EU and Iran! The EU brand of so-called democracy is to keep holding elections until the electorate give the right result. The 'right result' being the voters falling in line with the wisdom of the EU leadership and bureaucrats and not vice versa!

In Iran we have another brand of democracy - islamic democracy. By all accounts the pundits and political prognosticators have all called the election result wrong. They expected, at the very least, the reformist candidates to force a second vote and have a reasonable chance of deposing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But in actual fact; with an 85% turnout [note that only 43% voted in the recent EU poll]; the incumbent won a landslide with [supposedly] 62.6% of the vote. This has truly shocked the 'experts' and led to disputes and protests against the vote as it is deemed, in some quarters, to have been rigged. But are we are talking about western democracy when it is applied to an islamic republic? Of course not!

It is being reported today that leading reformists have been arrested in Iran following demonstrations against the result. Around one hundred [100] members of Iranian reformist groups have been arrested and accused of orchestrating the protests following the disputed presidential election result. Supporters of defeated reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi were arrested overnight, including the brother of ex-President Khatami. Mr Mousavi's status is not known. This follows the news that not a few crowds took to the streets of Tehran on Saturday to protest against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election:

So we have here another case of democracy - Middle Eastern/islamic style. Whether it is Gaza or Lebanon or Egypt or Iraq or Iran or any other islamic entity; there must always be a degree of of caution applied when the term 'democracy' is used. In total contrast to this: in the only true democracy in the Middle East; Israel; political parties can stand who are openly against the Jewish state!

So we need to take the mass media news reports on the Iranian election with a pinch of salt. I find it most interesting that David Miliband has only said that it is up to Iran to resolve any wrongdoing. He said:

"We have also heard the concerns about the counting of ballots expressed by two of the candidates. This is a matter for the Iranian authorities to address."

This statement came from from our Foreign Secretary! Our national representative in the Mother of all [democratic] Parliaments! This muted response just about says it all. Democracy and islam go together like similar magnetic poles. They repel each other ... so the reality of democracy in the Middle East is a tad different what from we understand here in the West.

On top of that; Iran is implicated in a negative light in the end time scenario as revealed in the Holy Bible. So to expect a comfortable result in Iran for us folks here in the West where Ahmadinejad is deposed and a reformist president takes his place is not wise. All religio-political power in Iran is from the Supreme Ayatollah downward anyway.

We should, however, expect a lot more of these 'shocks' as events unroll and we head toward the rise of the Beast; the covenant of death [sheol] that Israel will one day sign with antichrist and the dreaded Tribulation. Remember that there are not a few True Christians in Iran and their number is rising. They are not [all] political activists. They need our support and prayers as God is doing a fine work there.

The Serpent Trap

#306: Hello again folks! I was watching one of those David Attenborough-type programmes about snakes the other day. And this thought crossed my mind. How do snakes catch their prey? The answer is that they either bite; poison and render unconscious their victims before swallowing them or they crush their victims to death and then swallow them. Either method is extremely effective. Revelation 12:9 states: "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, his angels were cast out with him."

From Genesis to Revelation we are presented with quite a few descriptions of the Devil. One of the most familiar is that of a snake, serpent or even dragon. Peter uses these words to describe the enemy of God: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour" [I Peter 5:8]

Both scriptures uses terms that are applied to predators. Whether it's done via a quick bite, poisoning and a helpless death or by slow constriction and also a helpless death - the end is the same and so is is the goal of the adversary. Ultimately; the devil is after souls to destroy and souls to join him in the lake of fire for eternity. And he will attempt it by any means: deception; murder; a slow or a fast death.

From Marduk [the serpent dragon of Babylon] through direct Luciferian worship [satanism] to the occultic practices of tarot card reading and Ouija boards [both popular among today's generation] et al to freemasonry [indirect - at least at first - luciferian worship] and all false religion [including evolutionism]; that old dragon is spreading a large net for those souls on the wide road to destruction. And like a snake he is a cold blooded killer. He will wait for his prey as long as it takes; attacking; biting with vicious venom or by coiling himself around his victim until it's too late. What happens in the natural is a picture of what is going on in the spiritual. Hence Jesus' quadruple warning to His disciples to beware of deception in these last days in His Olivet Discourse [Matthew 24-25] should be considered seriously.

And this is what has being going through my mind this week with respect to snakes! Most people don't like 'em and have an inbuilt dislike and inbred distrust of them. It all goes back to Genesis and the Fall. And it won't end until we reach the end of the book of Revelation [or thereabouts]. And that is why every God-breathed Word of scripture will not return void and should be taken literally unless otherwise stated.

Kent Hovind

#305: Hello again folks! A few years back; I picked up a video entitled "Dinosaurs and the Bible" presented by Dr. Kent Hovind - a truly gifted creation evangelist. I watched it there and then and again earlier this year [or was it late last year?] and I still think it is one of the best creationist presentations that I have ever heard ... and with a good sprinkling of humour; wit and irony too! It includes some interesting investigations into modern day sightings of dinosaurs [no ... not Cliff Richard or Status Quo ... although!!!]. I still like Kent Hovind and I am saddened that he is currently in jail; as superbly explained in this article from WorldNetDaily:

Whether or not he is guilty as charged; I believe he challenged 'churchianity' and the powers that be quite successfully and that may well be one of the reasons that the book was literally thrown at him - with little support from those who should have known better. It is indeed sad that this man is in prison. Some of his ideas, besides his defence of biblical; literal creationism, such as Illuminati conspiracy theories are also worth considering and checking out.

I have also heard that there is a healthy Bible study in the jail and Kent has led a not a few souls to the LORD in his current predicament. The LORD is in charge and He can bring many positives from negative situations [think on Joseph; Paul et al]. Please pray for Kent Hovind; his family and whatever ministry that the LORD has for him.

Anti-Semitism Rising

#304: Hello again folks! Those warning bells are start to toll ... louder and louder! When I remember some of my previous blogs on the subject of the "Edmonton Revelation" and other like subjects; I find it no surprise to also hear about today's attack at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington; as reported here by the BBC:

Anti-semitism is holding firm in its birthplace: the Middle East - ably assisted by the teachings of the koran; the hadith and the islamic religion - and it is on the rise; not only in Europe; but also in the Americas [and not necessarily by way of islam in and of itself]. This comes as no shock. I thought it apt to quote this news alert from SWC [Simon Wiesenthal Centre] that I've just received in the last hour. The irony is more than apparent:
The murderous attack that took place at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington by James von Brunn, a self-identified anti-Semite, white supremacist, and hater of African-Americans shows that the cancer of hatred, bigotry and anti-Semitism is alive and well in America," said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
"The most astonishing fact is that the assailant, a captain in the US Navy who once fought against the 'Axis of Evil' in World War II, became an instrument of that evil," they added.
"It is deeply disturbing that one of America’s most powerful symbols of the memory of the Holocaust was selected as the site of the attack just days after President Obama accompanied Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel to the Buchenwald death camp," concluded Hier and Cooper who are currently meeting with Arab leaders in the Gulf region.
James von Brunn, the alleged 89-year old shooter’s racist and anti-Semitic sentiments have been tracked by Simon Wiesenthal Center researchers. Some selections from various websites are shown above; click on images to enlarge.

What can I say or add? Only that the ground is well and truly being prepared by the enemies of God and His people for "the time of Yacov's trouble" [Jeremiah 30:7]. I'll leave it there for today. Please [continue to] pray for the True Salvation in Messiah Yeshua for both Jew and gentile.

Carbon-14 Dating Deconstructed

#303: Hello again folks! I can't remember for the life of me where I got this interesting article from; but today I would like to share it with you. Once again; I surprise myself with what I post versus what I planned to publish ... and there's no such thing as coincidence - is there? This well researched article blows yet another hole in the false THEORY of evolution and should encourage most folks to keep checking things out for themselves. Enjoy:
"For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 dating technique. They want to know if it is accurate or if it does work. Worse still, they want to know how evolutionists use Carbon-14 to date dinosaur fossils!
The Carbon-14 "dating" method was introduced by Dr. W. F. Libby at the University of Chicago in 1948. He claimed that is was capable of dating animal, vegetable and human remains of fairly "recent' origin. Recent, that is, for an evolutionist. Carbon-14 is a long-lived radioactive isotope of Carbon-12. Carbon-12 is the normal stable isotope of Carbon, which is the basic building block of organic life forms. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.
Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,730 years. That means that starting with one pound of 100% Carbon-14, half of it would decay in 5,730 years, leaving 50%, or half a pound. Then, in another 5,730 years, a second decay period would occur, leaving one quarter of a pound. The process would continue, halving the amount left every 5,730 years until, theoretically, nothing remained of the original pound.
Carbon-14 is produced in the upper atmosphere through the bombardment of Nitrogen [80% of atmospheric gases] by neutrons which come from the powerful cosmic radiation and cause a chemical reaction to take place. The Carbon-14 produced by this process is then converted into Carbon Dioxide, just as normal Carbon-12 is. This Carbon-14 Dioxide is then utilized by plants during their normal metabolism. Animals and humans who eat these plants take the Carbon-14 into their systems just as they would Carbon-12.
There is then a ratio of Carbon-14 to Carbon-12 in the bodies of plants, animals and humans which could be considered as "fixed" at the time of death. After death, the Carbon-14 would decay and the ratio of the two elements would change. Evolutionists then claim to determine the amount of time since the death of the organism by measuring this ratio. The lower the amount of Carbon-14, the longer it has been since death occurred.
As you can see, the theoretical limit of the usefulness of Carbon-14 would only be about 50,000 years. This would be the amount of time it would take for nine half-lives, and after that there would not be enough left to measure accurately. There are, however, many assumptions which have led to serious flaws in this supposedly useful method.
First, one must assume that the decay rate of Carbon-14 has remained constant and not varied over the years. This is an unwarranted assumption. There is evidence to indicate that quite the opposite is true. Experiments done with the radioactive isotopes of Uranium-238 and Iron-57 have shown that rates not only do vary, but can, in fact, be altered by changing the environment surrounding the samples.
Second, there is the assumption that the formation of Carbon-14 has been constant throughout the years. This, too, is a totally unwarranted view for two reasons. The Industrial Revolution caused a significant increase in the amount of Carbon-12 in the atmosphere through the burning of coal. In addition, the initiation of atomic bomb testing around 1950 caused a rise in neutrons which in turn increased Carbon-14 concentrations.
Third, the assumption is made that the concentrations of Carbon-14 and Carbon-12 have remained constant in the atmosphere. Besides the aforementioned items, the amount of cosmic radiation in the past, and in particular the amount reaching the atmosphere, may have been dramatically different. If one were to believe the Bible, the earth was surrounded by a layer of water vapor between Creation and the Flood. If this water vapor did exist in the past, then it would have effectively shielded the atmosphere from cosmic radiation. This shielding would have drastically reduced the amount of Carbon-14 produced.
Fourth, Dr. Libby assumed that the amount of Carbon-14 being produced in the present had reached equilibrium with the amount of Carbon-12; he assumed that the two were in balance with each other. Since Carbon-14 is a radioactive element, it starts to decay immediately upon formation. If you start with zero Carbon-14 in the atmosphere, it would take 50,000+ years for the amount being produced to equal the amount decaying. One of the reasons that we know the earth is younger than 50,000 years old is that the amount of Carbon-14 in the environment is only 78% of the amount that it should be, if the earth were old.
Fifth, evolutionists have assumed that all plants and animals take in and utilize Carbon-14 equally in their systems as they do Carbon-12. Quite the contrary is true! Mollusks found alive off the coast of Hawaii have had their shells dated with the Carbon-14 method. The shells were calculated to have died 2,000 years ago, yet the animals were still alive. Natural crude oil has been dated using the Carbon-14 technique; yet evolutionists would teach that oil is too old to be dated using Carbon-14. The grass used as part of the mortar in an old English castle, known to have been built only 800 years ago, was dated by Carbon-14 to be thousands of years old. The list of non-compliant dates derived by Carbon-14 is literally endless.
All of these assumptions have caused there to be considerable overestimates using the Carbon-14 technique. Today, most evolutionists, including Dr. Libby, would agree that the method is at best usable for only a few thousand years.
In 1970, Dr. R. L. Whitlaw, collected a database of 15,000 Carbon-14 dates attributed to various plant, animal and human remains. He grouped these three categories and then studied the patterns they formed. He found a number of significant points.
Whitlaw noticed that the number of human and animal remains increased from 7,000 years ago to 5,000 years ago. At that point there was an abrupt decrease in the populations to one-tenth the previous amount, followed by a slow and gradual increase to the present. He also noticed that the populations of creatures in North and South America lagged behind the population numbers in Africa and Europe.
While I would disagree somewhat with the exact dates he attributes to the samples, both of his observations would be consistent with the biblical record. The Bible paints a picture of life initially originating in the Middle East and migrating across the world. This migration and growth in population would then be punctuated by the death of most air-breathing land-dwelling creatures in the Flood of Noah. After the Flood we would expect to see the same migration and population growth patterns develop for a second time.
Perhaps the best description of the problem in attempting to use the Carbon-14 dating method is to be found in the words of Dr. Robert Lee. In 1981, he wrote an article for the Anthropological Journal of Canada, in which stated:
"The troubles of the radiocarbon dating method are undeniably deep and serious. Despite 35 years of technological refinement and better understanding, the underlying assumptions have been strongly challenged, and warnings are out that radiocarbon may soon find itself in a crisis situation. Continuing use of the method depends on a fix-it-as-we-go approach, allowing for contamination here, fractionation there, and calibration whenever possible. It should be no surprise, then, that fully half of the dates are rejected. The wonder is, surely, that the remaining half come to be accepted.
No matter how useful it is, though, the radiocarbon method is still not capable of yielding accurate and reliable results. There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually the selected dates."
There you have it! The Carbon-14 'dating" method is as invalid as the evolutionary philosophy for which it was introduced and supposed to support!"
I can add no more other to remind readers that real and true history and science can be found by taking the Bible literally unless otherwise stated. I would encourage you to re-read the above and revel in the Truth of the Word of God; with Whom there is no shadow of turning!

Get the Message?

#302: Hello again folks! I've waited a weekend to wait for; consider and digest the results in the recent council and European Parliamentary elections. And of course I'm delighted that UKIP came second nationally. Their haul of thirteen [13] MEP's beat the 2004 total of twelve MEP's despite the fallout over the Robert Kilroy-Silk debacle in the East Midlands. There are a number of points that I would like to make regarding the result and in light of recent blogs of the subject of the EU and involvement of Christians in politics:
  1. The political pundits have mostly repeated their mantra that UKIP are a protest vote party with one or two exceptions. A quick look at the result shows that they have consolidated their vote while other 'major parties' have stood still or have been rejected by the electorate in favour of parties like the Green Party and the BNP et al.
  2. If we consider that, due to EU expansion, the total number of MEP's in this election has been reduced from 78 to 72 and that UKIP have increased their representation from 12 to 13 MEP's; UKIP now have a 17% greater proportion of the UK's allocation of MEP's - this is [in my opinion] good news.
  3. The Christian Party - Christian Peoples Alliance [CP-CPA] gained 1.6% of the vote and came 10th [excluding Northern Ireland's results] behind the English Democrats. 250,000 souls voted for the CP-CPA; 15 million did not [of those who did vote]. What was achieved? Was Christ's Lordship proclaimed? All this has proved is that those folks who felt lead to vote, if taken as a percentage of the 30 million eligible to vote; represented 0.83% thereof. That's not even 1%! So much for the legend that this country is supposedly 10% 'Christian' - or the myth that Britain is a 'Christian' country!
  4. The BNP polled three times as many votes as the CP-CPA and came 6th gaining two [2] MEP's. Despite the Church of England calls to its parishioners to not vote BNP in the North-West; the BNP gained their first county council seat and MEP in the very area that the CoE ploughed into local/national politics in full force and made absolutely no difference at all! Yet more evidence of the pointlessness of state religion and churchianity.
  5. Any discerning Christian [or churchian] who has a working knowledge of Biblical eschatology would be better served putting their efforts into compelling lost souls in His Kingdom which is not of this world and voting for a party trying to extricate the UK from the EU Beast and the coming direct Tribulation judgment on the kingdom of antichrist [in my personal opinion].
  6. The real reason why UKIP is doing so well is because; despite the MP expense scandal, the current economic turmoil, all manner of government spin on everything from climate change to nanny state monitoring and a certain bias in the press corps.; most folks vote UKIP because they do not want to be in the EU; they just want to be friends and trading partners with their European neighbours. And they would like a free and fair vote on the issue. Before it's too late.
That's all I'm going to say on this subject on this most pleasing of nights after the night before. Whatever your political allegiance tonight; whether or not you turned out to exercise your vote; May God bless you!

Silent Majority Speaking Yet Sleeping

#301: Hello again folks! Are you watching the political high jinks going on today at Westminster as Gordon Brown tries to maintain control of his sinking ship? All the analyses have begun by the 'expert' political pundits on Sky TV and the BBC for the collapse of the vote for Labour and the under-achievement of the other two 'main' parties here in the UK; both in the council election results and the anticipated result of yesterdays EU election [to be announced Sunday evening].
But there was one 'excuse' that really annoyed me and really shows the level of apathy and deception going on in this once proud country. Apparently, if you are to believe the media, the reason that so many British folks have voted UKIP [or for any other 'minor' party] is to protest the 'Big 3' or the MP expense scandal.
I can say this truthfully: every person that I have asked for their voting intention and have said that they will vote for or that they have voted for UKIP have told me that they did so because they want out of the EU. There is a silent majority in this land that do not want to give the EU £40 million a day and do not want to be a part of the European Union. That is why they voted for UKIP!
The bulk of folks are not consulted on their opinion regarding the UK's membership of the EU. A promise was made by the current PM of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty [a.k.a. the EU constitution] which he has broken. We now rely on the good people of Ireland to save us. Every General Election is fought on every and any issue except the EU. It is avoided. The government above the government will not allow this. Because we do not truly live in a democracy.
I would personally like to see UKIP promote itself more towards gaining MP's as well as MEP's on its own merits. I am not a political animal but - while we still have a degree of [so-called] 'freedom' - I think it meet that folks are made aware that EU membership is and should be a major election issue. Every election season; folks are distracted by the mass media and are almost controlled by personalities and single issues [i.e. the Iraqi war]. But never is membership of the EU on the menu. Most folks do not even consider voting outside their comfort zone of one or two political parties. And that is the one issue that motivates me to write this blog today.
As the end time scenario unfolds; whole masses of populations [and some Christians] are going to be deceived into worshipping the Beast and taking the '666' mark of the Beast. I see a precursor to that happening now with respect to the EU issue. The biggest deception is getting folks to believe that they cannot be or are not deceived. Most of the good people of this country are being deceived into staying in and being sucked into the EU Beast. By being distracted by other 'events' and by being brainwashed that the EU issue is a single; one trick pony. They think it is in the good hands of fallen; fallible politicians when it is in fact the single most important issue of the day - in my humble opinion - and diabolical plans are afoot. Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!
