Free EU DVD on Request

#411: Hello again folks! I still have a few copies left of the DVD produced by the Independence & Democracy Group at the EU parliament in Brussels that includes two [2] short documentaries entitled "Remote Control - How the EU controls your life" [21 minutes] and "Out of Control - How the EU is costing you the Earth" [17 minutes].

It's an eye opener for sure! If you would like a clue or two on how the North American Union; the African Union etc. may also develop, then watch this documentary. You can watch these excellent programmes and perhaps see future history; how we are all losing our national sovereignty to the EU superstate &/or the NWO and how the Beast empire [a la the 4th Reich] is growing.

This DVD is a good door opener to witness to the 100% reliability of the Word; how the Bible relates to current/future events and why everyone needs Salvation in Yeshua. If you would like a copy - free of charge - please add a comment to this particular blog with your contact details or email me at

Taxed to Death!

#410: Hello again folks! We are already billions in debt yet our Prime Minister Gordon Brown is still busily pledging [our] taxpayers money to "help developing nation tackle [so-called human-caused] climate change."
But we are the only major western economy still in recession. I fear what pledges this PM will make "on our behalf" at the Copenhagen summit. There is talk of a global tax on CO2 emissions et al. Meanwhile the new EU President and erstwhile Bilderberger is already making plans to impose new "Euro Tax" on his subjects to raise [yet] more income for the EU juggernaut.
To summarize: [a] we are going to be taxed to repay the money our government borrowed [on our behalf?] to prop up the banks; [b] we may be taxed via the UN or some other international body to aid the fight against climate change and [c] our new EU masters want to also tax us to pep up their budgetary plans.
In short; if we weren't already - we are going to be taxed to death - literally. Even though all our financial [i.e. the so-called 'credit crunch'] and political [i.e. giving our national heritage away to the EU Beast] problems are man-made; 'climate change' or 'global warming' is NOT man-made at all. More likely it is solar cyclical; a sign of the times and the judgement of a Righteous and Holy God.
The 'mark of the beast' [MoB] referred to in the 'Book of Revealing' will not only mean folks will not be able to 'buy or sell'; it means that those who are in debt or who have no or little disposable income [because they are taxed to death] will not be able to live without it.
Catch 22 me thinx. I believe that many folks haven't really thought out what the implications of the MoB are. Primarily; taking it is a sign of willing submission and worship [of the antichrist as opposed to the TRUE Triune One] and the emblem of an eternal choice [of damnation]. But it is a trap and a snare and a burden and he ultimate form of bondage.

They Sing for Sinners

#409: Hello again folks! I'm sure that most of you who know me; know that I love the music of ELO! But you may not know that I also follow and love the music of not a few Christian contemporary artistes. Specifically Michael W. Smith; Crystal Lewis; Mercy Me and [last but certainly not least!] Newsboys.
But there is another one of my favourite groups that I have a lot of time for. And they are Casting Crowns. This week I received their new album "Until The Whole World Hears" in the post and, as usual, it is a great offering. Great lyrics; nice guitar work and a great music package. I've bought all their releases to date [without realizing it - I'm not always an ELO anorak!]:

Some of their songs/performances have more than touched a nerve and ministered to me and others I know. The first song that got my attention was "Voice Of Truth". So why not check them out?

Bravo Lord Pearson! [2]

#408: Hello again folks! So the new leader of UKIP; following on from Nigel Farage [who did a marvellous job in my opinion]; is Lord Pearson of Rannoch:

This, of course, is the same Lord Pearson who earlier this year invited Geert Widers over to present his critique of islam entitled: "Fitna" amidst not a little "controversy". This man is extremely suspicious of the EU [quite rightly] and is also a campaigner against 'militant islamism' [which is really true islam anyway].
I like what he said during his acceptance speech: "UKIP is not for lemmings"; I also happen to believe that Lord Pearson will turn out to be a great leader for UKIP. I just hope that he has enough time to settle in before the next General Election.

Bad Root = Bad Fruit

#407: Hello again folks! One of my oft repeated phrases [a quote from a Yacov Prasch article] is "Wrong doctrine; Wrong conduct". When I read this article; it further reinforces the truth of that phrase:
One of the many "doctrines of demons" that hold the roman catholic church [RCC] together is that 'priests' [clergy] should not marry. This is not biblical. Paul was married as was Peter et al. Imposing a false doctrine on folks works out through the flesh ultimately. Imposing the false doctrine of enforced celibacy appears to work out thru' homosexuality and paedophilia amongst other 'fruit'; taking the RCC as an example. Not that we need priests, vicars et al in any case. True believers ARE priests and Jesus is our Great High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. Grace does indeed supercede law [see yesterdays article on this subject:]. And remember that Jesus said that you can't get good fruit from a bad tree. In other words:

And we can see this in the above article. What's worse is where that £146 million is coming from. Not the coffers of the Vatican for sure. More likely from the purse of Mr. & Mrs. Joe Public. The other [so-called] 'fruit' is that general public opinion is again ever-so-slightly further tilted against all brands of Christianity [and churchianity] including True Christianity ... preparing the way for the false one world religion et al. Keep your eye on this story ... it may well 'develop'.

A Holocaust Survivors View on Islam

#406: Hello again folks! My good friend Roger Winter-Smith sent me this interesting piece entitled "A Holocaust Survivor’s View on Islam". Here it is in full for you to read and evaluate - and if you care to - pass onto others accordingly:
"A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.
'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen.
Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march... It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China ’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:
Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own the m[osques], and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts - the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.
Emanuel Tanay, M.D. 2980 Provincial St. Ann Arbor , MI 48104, USA *Dr. Emanuel Tanay MD is a well-known forensic psychiatrist who has been an expert witness in many famous cases. He has served as an officer or committee member on the Michigan Psychiatric Society, the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, the American Psychiatric Association [APA], and others. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and of the American Board of Forensic Psychiatry and a distinguished fellow of the APA and the American Academy of Forensic Sciences [AAFC]. A Holocaust survivor himself, Dr Tanay coauthored a book about the survivors of the Holocaust and was asked by the German government to consult on just compensation for the Holocaust survivors. Dr. Tanay has served on several journal editorial boards, authored many publications, and presented countless times on forensic medicine. His efforts have also produced many awards and commendations from groups such as the Michigan State Medical Society, APA, the Detroit Institute of Technology, and AAFC, among others.
I hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!"
The above testimony needs thinking on. Can you see the similarities between the rise of nazism and islamism here? There are so many parallels between these two religions/movements ... that is the subject of a future blog/essay me thinx.

The Difference Between Law & Grace

#405: Hello again folks! I hate religion in and of itself. Man-made rules that either bury Truth or outright deceive folks into believing a lie or lies in place of Truth. Pilate asked a good question once: "What is Truth?" [John 18:38]. The world is replete; for the last 2,000 years; since grace was legally instituted; of many religions [including churchianity]; practices; people; organizations et al who have - for differing reasons - opposed grace in its purest form.

The other week we saw two [2] news events [although one was broadcast more widely than the other for reasons I need not explain to regular readers of this 'ol blog!]:
In one report; a Somali woman was stoned to death for adultery by true muslims [following the koran and hadith] and in the other story; a vicar has forgiven the killers of his adopted daughter whilst also advocating the importance of taking responsibility for ones actions. One is a testimony to law under - in this case - islam; and the other is a demonstration of the freedom and grace and release and peace of True Christianity. Need I add any more? Jesus; I'm sure; is well pleased with this particular vicar. On the other hand; I'm pretty sure what He thinks of false religion too [check out what He said about the Pharisees and Nicolaitians!] I'm so glad that grace with a capital 'G' is freely available - for the present day and for the time being. I need add no more.

Laying the Groundwork

#404: Hello again folks! This article in Wolverhampton's Express & Star newspaper on Friday 20th November entitled "Democracy pays the price as political pygmies chosen"; written by Nigel Hastilow; is worth reading:
"Baroness Who? If the EU really wanted to downplay the creation of a new president and foreign secretary it couldn't have done much better than give the top job to a Belgian and the other to an obscure baroness from Britain. Baroness Ashton of Upholland [where?] is an ex-CND campaigner.
She has a degree in sociology and all the right contacts, being married to the political pundit and YouGov polling pioneer Peter Kellner. Her new boss is possibly even more obscure. The EU leaders passed over Tony Blair - a decision we can all be grateful for - even though he was, as David Milliband said, the only candidate capable of "stopping the traffic" thanks to his notoriety.
Instead they have chosen the Prime Minister of Belgium, one Herman van Rompuy. No doubt in the future when we are asked to name five [5] famous Belgians [always tricky especially if Tin Tin doesn't count] we may recall old Rumpy-pumpy.
But the truth is that rather than choose a "traffic-stopper" as the first President of Europe, the leaders have gone for a "traffic warden" instead. And with Baroness Ashton of Upholland at his side, it's clear the leaders of the EU are doing their best to hide the truth from us - the truth being that they have just created the world's newest superstate. They may have chosen political pygmies over the international disaster that would have been President Blair, but the fact remains they have now completed their bloodless - and referendum-less - political power-grab.
Baroness Ashton is a perfect example of the EU's complete abandonment of any idea of democracy. She has risen without trace from the ranks of the ban-the bombers to become a Peer, a Minister, an EU Commissioner and now the EU's first "High Representative for Foreign Affairs".
At no point in her long and lack-lustre career has she ever stood for elected office. Yet thanks to our supposedly democratic system of politics, she has now been elevated the the second most powerful position in the whole of Europe. This is a depressing day for anyone who still cherishes national sovereignty. The only consolation is that it's probably depressing for Tony Blair too."

It is against this backdrop of lame duck EU presidents [even if they are Bilderbergers a.k.a. NWO minions] et al that the Beast [antichrist] will rise, quite quickly and very remarkably, to power one day yet future. The chess game has begun ... but we're not at 'Check Mate' yet. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming [back] soon though - and don't you forget it!

EU are Being Deceived!

#403: Hello again folks! A question: How might any prospective Beast [antichrist] candidate receive the opportunity to get his hands on the largest power bloc in the making in the world?
Answer: with the right crisis and with a lame duck current incumbent EU president or two. Remember how Hitler began his rise to power? I for one am not surprised that the new EU President was an unknown; 'elected' undemocratically as a compromise between the pro-Blair and anti-Blair camps. Tony Blair getting 'in' the first time would have been too convenient. What is going to happen 'down the road' is how the AC will begin his infamous rise to power. Whoever it is.
We're in the 'now but not yet' phase. For sure; this first EU president is there to try the waters and deceive the EU populace into believing that this new role is almost ceremonial when in fact; when the right conditions prevail; it will be dictatorial. As I've often said and repeated repeatedly; please watch the periphery - the main show is always the distraction in any conjuring act.

Irony of Ironies

#402: Hello again folks! Long time; no blog! Sometimes life is hectic and FULL! I have so much to write. I'm a veritable blog jam at the moment! One thing that I do wish to point out tonight is this strange [non] coincidence:
And that is that we have a surprise new Belgian EU President; Monsieur Herman van Rompuy - not Tony Blair [for now!] thank gooodness. Is it not an irony that one of the original and most vehement Europhiles was also a Belgian; Monsieur Paul-Henri Spaak who once uttered these infamous words:

"We do not want another committee. We have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass in which we are sinking. Send us such a man and, be he God or the devil, we will receive him."

I wonder; is history repeating itself? George Santayana once famously said these wise words:

"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

God is extremely longsuffering of us fallen men and women.

Stating the Obvious? [2]

#401: Hello again folks! The two [2] tragedies in Afghanistan and in the US this week involving rogue policemen and imams has been extensively reported in the media:

But I haven't heard one news report qualifying that both perpetrators; a 'policeman' surnamed Gulbuddin and Major Nidal Malik Hasan; were muslims. Mr. Malik was heard to shout ' allah akbar' when he murdered those thirteen [13] soldiers in cold blood and sent them into eternity. It is commonly reported that this chant means: "god is great" - but it is actually better translated as "god is greater" - than the God of the Jews and Christians - in context. This is a common occurrence when jihadists do their stuff. Think about it: in killing innocents et al; these folks are arrogantly proclaiming their moon god allah is greater than YHWH. They are, of course, forgetting that YHWH is the Creator who actually made the Moon on Day #4! If only folks would check these things out for themselves and not believe every last word that these newscasters and politicians tell 'em.

This Generation?

#400: Hello again folks! I read this article in tonight's edition of Wolverhampton's Express & Star newspaper. It just about says it all about this generation:


One in 20 UK schoolchildren think Adolf Hitler was a coach of the German football team, a survey has revealed. And one in six youngsters said they thought Auschwitz was a Second World War theme park. One in 20 said the Holocaust was a celebration at the end of the war. The survey for a veterans' charity also found one in 10 thought the SS stood for Enid Blyton's Secret Seven, and one in 12 believed that the Blitz was a clean-up after the Second World War. Scottish based charity Erskine, which provides nursing and medical care for veterans, said it would now educate schoolchildren. The charity questioned 2,000 children aged nine to 11. Major Jim Panton, chief executive of Erskine, said: "As we approach Remembrance Day it is hard to believe that 40 per cent of our children do not know when it is.

This is truly tragic. I've nothing more to add ... for a change!

The Return of Controversial Keith [2]

#399: Hello again folks! The pressure on True Christianity continues unabated it seems. Italy is banning the use of crosses &/or crucifixes in their schools and we now have a play in Glasgow about a transsexual Jesus [what next?]:
I don't see any such play being produced about Buddha or Mohammad and I haven't seen any sign of crescent moon symbols also being outlawed. What we are seeing is a kind of gradual 'creep' in the war against the followers of The Way.
For example; all this week we have had [so-called] humanists and atheists rolled out on Breakfast TV bemoaning Christmas and insisting that we have a 'winterfest' instead. Yes; the CoE has failed and Yes; the UK is no longer a 'Christian' country. But why don't these 'experts' also campaign for Ramadan to be moved to February and halved in length while they are at it?
The Fall of man has led to not only sin coming into the world and God's creation; it has meant that a generation-by-generation corruption of everything is upon us [read Romans 8] ... and it's getting worse. The cumulative effect of these corruptions is that folks get ill and they can be born with all kinds of 'defects' - and not all of them physical - some may be emotional or mental et al. Whilst I am unsure that someone can really be born 'gay'; I do consider that; as a result of the Fall; it is a possibility that there is a small proportion of folks who are genuinely and literally 'transsexual' .. or in the wrong gender body. But that doesn't justify outright blasphemy or trying to force ones condition onto Christianity and its Founder or force Christianity into their worldview.
God loves all fallen souls ... even Cliff Richard and Gordon Brown! He is Holy [separate from and high above His creation]. It's time for there to be an active campaign to stand up for True Christianity and the real LORD Jesus Christ - Son of God and Messiah and Saviour of mankind.

RIP United Kingdom

#398: Hello again folks! Today we are gathered to witness the beginning of the end of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Czechs have now finally surrendered to the intense pressure from the [non-democratic] European Union. The last obstacle was removed today by the Czech High Court:
I've already had friends and family consoling me on this dark, dark day. It's truly depressing but you can't stop prophecy being fulfilled in God's own time. On the other hand though; you can sure still exercise your free will [while you are still allowed it; I might add]. The main opposition political party [the 'Conservatives'] have now also betrayed the British people too and ruled out a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty [a.k.a. the EU constitution]. So the absolute treason of Gordon Brown is now complete. I, for one, will still urge folks to use their votes wisely in next years general election and vote for a party that is for Great Britain as a sovereign state and not a nine-region sub-state of the federal entity that is now the EU. Here is a quote from Gawain Towler of UKIP today:
"Those who believe in our country and our future must vote UKIP at next year's general election. At least people know that with UKIP, there is no doubting our commitment to the country. So how about it - let everybody know. Write to local papers and magazines, phone in radio chat shows! Best of all talk to your friends!"
I do not want to stray into a party political broadcast but True Christians do indeed need to be informed too ... don't they? I am not of the opinion, as some would have it, that Christians can't be deceived ... they sure can. The best deceivers are [a] those deceived already themselves and [b] those who don't believe that they can be deceived! Remember: Jesus warns four [4] as much about deception in the last days as any other 'signs of the times' in the Olivet Discourse [please re-read Matthew chapters 24-25; Mark chapter 13; Luke chapter 21] ... and He was talking to believers!
Very gradually; the EU is taking over the previously independent and sovereign states of the continent of Europe. The history behind even the very word Europa is interesting too. Check out Wikipedia here:
Bible students will recognize the woman Europa riding a bull [Zeus] as she is abducted and raped. The references to a 'woman riding the beast' in the Book of Revelation take on a whole new meaning!

Concerned About Greenbelt?

#397: Hello again folks! Sally Richardson [God bless her] has sent me this interesting piece on the 'Christian' phenomenon that is 'Greenbelt'. As with all things; it should be read, digested and dealt with as you will. Speaking for myself; I was never really into the whole 'Greenbelt' thing - so I've always had an open mind on this festival .... until [maybe] now:

"For many years I have been concerned about Greenbelt. What supposedly started as a Christian Music Festival in 1974 soon had problems. The only time I went to Greenbelt was in 1989, when I was asked to work for one of the Christian music publishers at the Festival. A number of things concerned me there, especially the amount of alcohol being consumed, and I believe I was not wrong in believing that drugs were circulating around the site. Over the years since I was there in 1989, it has got further away from any semblance of Christianity. An examination of the speakers and their subjects from this year should clearly show that this is no longer a Christian event in any way. Speakers included Gene Robinson, the gay priest who claims to be able to justify the practice of homosexuality from a Biblical viewpoint - he can't be using the same Bible I read. There were several Muslim and Hindu speakers, as well as a host of speakers standing up for the Palestinians and denouncing Israel. If you can bear to read it, take a look at the link below and just read through the list of speakers and the description of their subjects from 2009: Though this festival has lost a lot of its influence, and the free Creation Fest run by Calvary Chapel is now having a greater and better influence among the young, Greenbelt still has influence among many Churches in this country. It has, in the past, nearly come to an end, but has just managed to find enough funds to continue. It is time that the 35 year history of Greenbelt comes to an end. The next Greenbelt festival is planned to take place between 27th and 30th August 2010 at ... Cheltenham Racecourse. I think it would be a good thing to pray that this will be cancelled. It is though, a sign of the end times that heresies will increase. I find this information highly unpleasant, and it grieves me greatly to see such things coming from a so-called "Christian" event. I don't mind you forwarding this email, but please consider prayerfully if you should forward it, and if so, to whom. If I find this upsetting to read, then I think, for some, it may be too much. Please pray. Many Blessings in Christ Jesus. Martin Emerson, Light In The Darkness, 44 Newland Park Drive, Hull Road, York YO10 3HP, ENGLAND
I do not think that it is a bad thing to re-evaluate 'stuff' from time to time. Even 'Christian' staples like 'Greenbelt' or [so-called] 'Christian' personalities et al.

42 Up!

#396: Hello again folks! Today [Sunday 1st November 2009] I have hit 42 ... I can't believe that I was 21 half a lifetime ago ... so today I thought it poignant to take a fresh look at Psalm 42:

"As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar. Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God."
