Obama Appoints a Jesuit to U.S. Commission On International Religious Freedom (May 2014)

“Barack Hussein Obama has just appointed Father Thomas Reese, S.J. to serve on the U.S. Commission On International Religious Freedom. Reese is a long-time liberal Catholic who has been an apologist for Obama and is frequently quoted by the secular press for a ‘Catholic’ viewpoint.”

Let us remind ourselves of an inspired quote that was made over 100 years ago:

“When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusionsthen we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.” (E.White, Testimonies Vol.5, p.451)

Are you ready for the ‘marvelous working of Satan’? Are you seeking and living according to the truth?

Every marriage must rely on trust – and likewise in our union with Christ, we must remain faithful to Him and His Word. Revelation speaks about the true bride of Christ, but there is another woman who is trying to seduce believers away from God’s Word. Revelation contains a shocking message about Babylon, the other woman. Babylon is fallen, and Christ’s people must escape her charms or perish! Thu…

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden says the U.S. government has the capability to remotely turn on a targeted cellphone and then secretly activate the device’s camera and microphone.

NBC News

In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Brian Williams, Snowden elaborated on some of the revelations made in the leaked documents that rocked the nation last year.

“The NSA, the Russian intelligence service, the Chinese intelligence service, any intelligence service in the world that has significant funding and a real technological research team can own that phone… as soon as you turn it on, it can be theirs,” Snowden said. “They can turn it into a microphone, they can take pictures from it, they can take data off of it.”

He did clarify, however, that such surveillance is “typically done on a targeted basis.”

Snowden also defended himself against critics who allege he has ties with Russia or the country’s president, Vladimir Putin.

“I have no relationship with the Russian government, I’ve never met the Russian president. I’m not supported by the Russian government. I’m not taking money from the Russian government,” Snowden said. “I’m not a spy, which is the real question.”

He said he “never intended to end up in Russia.” Instead, he claims the U.S. revoked his passport before his flight from Russia to “Cuba onwards to Latin America,” stranding him in Russia.

He made it clear that he would like to return to the United States, saying he misses his family, friends and even his old job.

Snowden, a former systems analyst for the NSA, downloaded intelligence documents and leaked them to select journalists, including Glenn Greenwald. The documents revealed, among other things, that the U.S. government was collecting bulk phone and email data on American citizens. Snowden maintains he took action because he felt the American people had the right to know about the surveillance programs.

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called Snowden a fugitive and urged him to “man up and come back to the United States.”

“If he cares so much about America and he believes in America, he should trust the American system of justice,” Kerry said.

When asked by Williams if the government could turn on a phone remotely if it’s off, Snowden said “yes.” He answered the same way when asked if they can turn on apps or access Google history.

Every principle of sovereignty, privacy and other constitutional protections is being repudiated by this and other actions taken by the United States. The Bible says And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Revelation 13:11,12

President Obama’s Catholic Political Formation · May 27, 2014

President Obama’s political formation was steeped in the Roman Catholic left. At 25 years of age Barack Obama was involved in training Roman Catholics how to be politically engaged. By 1987, after two short years in Chicago as a community organizer, Mr. Obama was already well known in Chicago’s black Catholic circles. He had spent those years working for an organization that paid him from a church grant. He had surrounded himself with Catholic priests and congregations and became steeped in the social justice wing of the church (the left), which played a powerful role in his political development.

It should be no surprise that the Catholic Church is involved in training some for political roles that are not well aligned with its teachings. Keep in mind that the church is part conservative and part socialist. They need friends on all sides of the political spectrum. The church knows that people eventually tire of their political leaders. When the opposite political philosophy replaces them, church leaders will be close to their successors too, even if those successors have significant disagreements on some fronts with the church. While the political order may not fulfill the aims of the church in some areas, church leaders can accomplish other things in the meantime that are important to them. They will return to the other agendas when political conditions are favorable again. In the case of Mr. Obama, though he is opposed to Catholic Church teaching on abortion, contraception, same-sex marriage, etc., he is aligned with the church concerning wealth redistribution and the socialist order that Rome promotes on a global scale.

Mr. Obama’s Catholic influences go back to when he was six years of age. His mother would occasionally take him to Mass and in 1967 enrolled him for a time at a Catholic school in Jakarta. In 1969 the young Obama was transferred to the state-run Muslim school.

When the Catholic bishops began to focus on the poor after Vatican II, they eventually created an anti-poverty and social justice program known as the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (again, a leftist organization). This became one of the most influential financiers of grass roots groups. Each year the church collects an annual offering for this organization. Donors often think that funds raised are used to provide necessities for the down and out. But instead, they are used for funding community organizing, often for radical agendas sometimes even at odds with Catholic teachings. This is a classic political tactic. The Catholic Church uses whatever tools are necessary to gain the support of the people, even if it is never intended to achieve the outcomes they ultimately desire.

Mr. Obama was in Chicago doing undergraduate studies when the church wanted to expand its influence and funded a project beyond Catholic parishes to the black Protestant churches. They hired an African American for the community-organizing task named Barack Obama. Though he had little knowledge of Catholicism, the persuasive young Obama fit seamlessly into the Catholic cityscape and over time became very influential.

One of his mentors at the time was Gregory Galluzzo, a former Jesuit priest (presumably still a Jesuit). Galluzzo was a disciple of community organizer Saul Alinsky, an influential socialist during most of the 20th century. He wrote a book called “Rules for Radicals,” which provides instruction on how to organize radical social change and shape a more socialist society. Saul’s son David Alinsky wrote a tribute to Obama’s use of his father’s tactics in a letter to the Boston Globe.

Back in Chicago, Mr. Obama’s office was in the Holy Rosary Parish church and he had very good access to the priestly centers of power in Chicago. Obama effectively evangelized for the church through community organizing to create discontent and therefore political change. But he also expanded their social programs to Protestant churches, including mega-churches. Mr. Obama maintained such close relations with the Catholic Church that many people actually thought he was Catholic.

In the late 1980s, the Catholic hierarchy had taken a conservative turn that elevated the culture wars that eventually put Mr. Obama at odds with the church on key social issues like contraception, abortion, and same-sex marriage. It may well be his close Catholic friends and his understanding of how to work with Catholic congregations that gained him the Catholic vote in 2008, despite priestly warnings against voting for him.

Yet, there is still a lot of common ground between President Obama and the Catholic Church, particularly in wealth redistribution and attention to the poor and “vulnerable.” This is a very Catholic way of looking at the world. It is also a socialist concept promoted by Alinsky.

While the poor are to be looked after, God’s plan is for it to be done by the churches and generous individuals, not through gigantic government social programs that keep the people poor and dependent on government handouts.

With Pope Francis, President Obama finds some synergy. At their meeting in March 2014, the two men discussed these things. The pope and the president have both been pressing for change concerning income inequality in their respective spheres. Socialism is a key element of one world government, which is essential to a one-world religion. President Obama will eventually leave the political stage, but the Catholic Church will still be there to influence the next shift of political leaders in the United States.

President Obama is helping the United States prepare to give life to the image of the beast.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15

Son sees father’s handiwork in convention

The liberal dark ages with including censorship and persecution are here. Don’t expect conservative views to get much traction in the new world of liberal intellectualism. Kirsten Powers, writing in USA Today, described the new era as “an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences.”

This time, the persecutor is not the Catholic Church or the unenlightened governments it controls. Now the persecutors are secular intellectuals. They claim to be liberal, but act in the opposite way. The liberal mantra is tolerance of all ideas and viewpoints. Now that liberal thinking has gained ascendency in society, a “mob mentality” has ascended with it. The “mob” tries to delegitimize and even persecute any dissent from their worldview.

And there are plenty of examples. Recently, a pending house-flipping TV show was cancelled because the “mob” had unearthed old remarks that the stars of the show had made about their Christian beliefs on homosexuality.

While criticizing Islam is considered to be intolerant by the “mob,” insulting Christianity is a sport. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is persona non grata and Brandeis University for attacking the prophet Mohammed, but Richard Dawkins describes God as “a misogynistic… sadomasochistic… malevolent bully” and Bill Maher calls Him a “psychic mass murderer” with hardly a yawn.

University of California-Santa Barbara women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young attacked a 16-year-old holding an anti-abortion sign in the campus ‘free speech zone.’ Miller-Young was charged with theft, battery and vandalism, but remains unrepentant and most important, still has her job. Meanwhile, one of Mozilla’s founders, Brendan Eich, “gave a private donation to an anti-gay marriage initiative six years ago and was ordered to recant his beliefs. When he wouldn’t, he was forced to resign from the company he helped found.”

What does it take to get “strung up in the town square?” It appears that all you need to do is express the “wrong views” in public, and the “mob” will come after you.

Why can’t people have a house-flipping show unless they believe and say the “right” things in their private lives? How can a college educator with opinions aligned with the “mob” attack a high school student and keep her job while a corporate executive with “wrong opinions” lose his job for making a campaign donation? This isn’t some Iran. This is the United States of America, the land of the free (expression included) and the home of the brave. It now requires a good deal of bravery to stand for beliefs that don’t match up with the liberal “mob.”

Whatever happened to the free market of opinions and ideas that the liberals championed for so many decades? Christian views are especially attacked. Will there come a time when God’s people will be abused because they advocate teachings that aren’t part of the mainstream worldview?

When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decree draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof. Great Controversy, page 635

Get Your Exercise! · May 01, 2014

It turns out that one of the best ways to beat cancer is to take regular exercise. People who stay active have half the risk of dying from any disease, including cancer. Recent studies show that those who burn fewer than 2,100 calories a week were 48 percent more likely to die from disease than those who burnt more than 12,600. For cancer survivors, daily exercise could extend their lives even further.

Regular exercise has already been shown to lengthen life, but now research reveals that regular exercise can extend the lives of cancer patients. A recent study used data from more than 1,000 men who had cancer and studied their physical exercise including walking, stair-climbing and sports. Those with cancer and those with heart disease showed nearly 50% less deaths from either cause.  Researchers said that physical activity should be promoted to those with these diseases.

It is also known that physical activity helps with arthritis and circulatory diseases. And because exercise improves the respiratory and immune systems, they are linked to extended lifespan and reduce the chance of getting cancer in the first place. A 2010 UK study showed that incidence of breast cancer, uterine cancer and colon cancer were all increased with less than the recommended minimum exercise.
“If those who are sick would exercise their muscles daily, women as well as men, in outdoor work, using brain, bone, and muscle proportionately, weakness and languor would disappear. Health would take the place of disease, and strength the place of feebleness.”  Medical Ministry, page 297

“Let the patients be shown the necessity of practicing the principles of health reform, if they would regain their health. Let the sick be shown how to get well by being temperate in eating and by taking regular exercise in the open air…” Counsels on Diet and Foods, page 444


Messages from the dead – Bereaved people recall visits by dead loved ones (May 2014)

DECEPTION!! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2632303/Messages-dead-The-drowned-son-returns-bedside-chats-The-astronaut-spoke-fathers-ghost-Impossible-This-spine-tingling-series-make-think-again.html

“The drowned son who returns for bedside chats. The astronaut who spoke to his father’s ghost. Impossible? This spine-tingling series may make you think again … A new book, Opening Heaven’s Door, will callenge your views. In the second part of our serialisation, bereaved people recall visits by dead loved ones.”

This is going to be one of Satan’s major end time tools in deceiving the world, with evil angels impersonating loved one’s that have died and giving messages that will lead people into Satan’s trap. But those of us who know the Bible truth, know that when we die, we STAY DEAD until the resurrection (Isaiah 26:19), and that we know nothing in death (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10).

There are spirits of demons mascarading as dead loved one’s deceiving the world. Please see the truth about death HERE so that you will not be deceived.

Death just might be one of the most misunderstood subjects today. To many it is enshrouded in mystery and evokes dreaded feelings of fear, uncertainty, and even hopelessness. Others believe that their deceased loved ones are not dead at all, but instead live with them or in other realms! Still others are confused about the relationship between the body, spirit, and soul. But does it really matte…

Mass Deception

Mass Deception

 

The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club recently teamed up with a local Satanic Temple to try to provide students the opportunity to “learn more about different religions.” The planned May 12, 2014, event received strong criticism from many in the community, especially the Archdiocese of Boston, who sees it as a mockery of the traditional Catholic Mass. It was cancelled at the last minute. [1]

The origins of the black mass are sketchy, with few and unreliable manuscripts explaining the rituals. Historians are not unified on exactly what was practiced or who carried out the services in the Middle Ages. Some speak of murder and blood, others of sexual immorality. A renewed interest in black masses arose in the 20th century with more writing and development by Satanists and other occultists. [2]

Of course, it is appropriate to condemn the black mass. People who do not believe in the supernatural and think this type of experience is simply an intellectual experience are in darkness. The Bible says Satan is a real being and an arch-deceiver who delights in people focusing their experiences on him. Some say the black mass is a distortion of Christianity that mixes pagan ideas with pure religion. We should be disturbed when any person or group plays around with concepts rooted in anti-God rebellion; the fact that some openly desire to practice a black mass shows how far our culture has fallen.

But this raises even deeper questions. What are the origins of the mass? Does it truly go back to the time of Jesus and the apostles? Is it genuinely biblical … or has it developed over time mixing truth with error and biblical teaching with human tradition?

The German reformer Martin Luther declared that true believers should receive no authority other than the Holy Bible. Digging beneath the accumulation of church tradition, he uncovered forgotten truths and revealed that the celebration of the mass mixed truth with error. He spoke against the belief of transubstantiation, which holds that the communion bread and grape juice literally became the blood and body of Jesus.

Without question, we would warn anyone from choosing to participate in any occult or Satanic services. Paul tells us, “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). The answer to this rhetorical question is ‘none.’ The Christian knows that when you play with fire, you get burned.

But it would be well for us to take a step further and ask, “Do the traditions I believe have a basis in Scripture or are they the doctrines of humans?” Paul also states, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1). Jesus said, “And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9).

Let’s take time to ensure that all of our Christian practices are founded on the solid rock of Scripture.
