I don’t watch TV. a lot anymore, as I don’t like the ungodly and anti-nuclear family influence being put out today by Hollywood or other decadent broadcasters. The level of defiance to a once healthy family life has virtually disappeared from the screen. This is all in an effort to discredit any idea of the traditional Western culture once learned from the Bible in a sighting of the structuring of the paternally led family, inputting the man as the head of the household. This all started with the influence of feminism in the 1960s and supported by those who subscribed to Marxist doctrines, in an effort to tear down the principles of stability within the family structure, devoid of God’s ordinances.
A couple nights ago, I just happened to walk past the TV and witnessed two males engaged in homosexual sex with each other, the one giving the other oral sex, in having his head surging between the other’s legs! I was shocked, and asked the wife what program she was watching? She replied, it is about farming, so I thought it was safe to watch! Now, admittedly it didn’t show any genitalia in this act, but the idea that children might see this on a regular TV show, I found deeply disturbing with the idea of desensitizing them to what in the past would have been considered degenerate and wicked sexual behavior.
This desensitizing of children is perverse and wicked! But that is a part of today’s agenda against God, I’m afraid. Parents and others are now terrified to speak out against what is now called “Marriage Equality” for fear of reprisals! Never mind this is only about 2% of the population engaged in such behavior, but now we must not only tolerate it, but we are being forced to promote it!
The Bible teaches that rebellion against God is as Witchcraft; so to discredit God (or His existence) is actually to follow the Spirit of Satan, rather than the Holy Spirit of God. Obama’s push for an anti-western culture, which is also called anti-colonialism is really centered around the ideals of the predominant traditional white cultures of the world. White of not, the thrust of the “Critical Race Theory” being taught in the classroom, also known as by Conservatives as Cancel Culture, is really an effort to discredit the merits of a once God-honoring Western Civilization with debauchery and a rebellion against morality, traditional ethics, and ultimately the laws of God, which are not even allowed for display any longer within a public courthouse.
This is all really just hidden bigotry and hatred to the Lord God, and his principles governing all of our lives – whether we believe in him or not! The Bible teaches that “my people perish because of lack of knowledge” (of the truth). So all history must be destroyed and rewritten and taught to accommodate the destruction of the order of the family, and ultimately the loss of civilization as we have known it!
Apologizing for the “white man” and his (Straight) Paternal Society, as discriminatory to all other peoples is the key. This is why Obama embraced and projected the “Rainbow Flag” onto the White House, as a symbol to the world of his post-modern and anti-colonial viewpoint of how he thought the world should be; and even stating that America was no longer a Christian Country. Everything he embraced was done in animosity towards so-called colonialism, the God-honoring values of the past, and to be blunt – racism, that the world has suffered with from the time of Babble for millenniums!
We have now entered a post-modern age going from absolute values to relativism. Christian ethics to pluralism, where everyone does what is right within their own minds. In retrospect, this is not only the rejection of God within society but is actually an apology to Satan, forever having engaged in God Honoring Values!
The most concerning of all this is that Conservatives and Christians will now be targeted as “EXTREMISTS” when in actuality they are not extreme at all, only they hold to a level of decency no longer honored by a post-modern and embittered population, who hate any viewpoint not ascribing to their own! The really odd point to me is that; progressives like these believe they are being virtuous towards others, in now what is a complete reversal to the values and natural laws of our past!
It all goes back to original sin, like when Cain murdered Able out of jealousy! Though shall not covet what thy neighbor has, it is the Lord who gives or takes away. It is righteousness that either exalts or destroys a nation, not its wealth. If we forget God, then He will either correct us or destroy us!
The Gospel of Jesus Christ frees men: Totalitarians enslave them! The dumbest thing I have ever heard is not to include the Lord in Government!

In our ever-increasing immoral society we will see demonic activity grow ever stronger prior to the arrival of the “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked, the son of perdition” commonly called “The Antichrist”. In this video (although I jump around in my thoughts) I try and give a brief description of the demonic oppression which I have learned in my life. The man who trained me in ministry had 3 doctorate degrees and worked as an Exorcist in Baltimore City.
It is by the Grace of God that we come to Jesus Christ, in repentance towards Salvation; we are sealed for the day of “redemption” of our glorified bodies the Bible tells us. Yet we must choose to walk either in the Holy Spirit, or in the flesh. The Lord will not force us to “yield to the Spirit” in the workings in our lives, as that is up to us to decide. The book of Acts explains to us about the Holy Spirit, and that the “natural mind receives not” the things of God; so that too becomes a choice of our free will – to walk in the Spirit, or the flesh. It has taken me a long time to understand this rift between the “spiritual” brethren, and the “natural” ones!
Freedom or Slavery, Humanity or Transhumanism, Crypto currencies, invisible enemy, digital control, 5 tier warfare. I think it is occurring for the incoming Satanic Global takeover, which will ultimately produce the MARK of THE BEAST: and it is all here, and being developed right beneath your nose! In this video I’m focusing on a new “Christian” movement of known as Transhumanists, this is not Sci-Fi, it is extraordinarily real!
Progressives can’t possibly love what the United States was designed to be!
I have waited all my life to see the United States obtain the status it enjoyed after World War Two.
President Donald Trump delivered that to us in, energy production, exporting, manufacturing, jobs, health care, and defense not seen since the late 40s, and it was terrific!
The whole time the socialist Democratic Party despised the President. They made up phony narratives on Russian Collusion since he was elected. They wanted open borders to flood the country with illegal immigrants to vote socialist, (Democrat) to support the welfare state, bankrupt the American worker and health care system, and were against a border wall to stop the bleeding of the American citizen both literally and financially!
Then the corrupted Democratic machine uses what amounts to mail fraud, corrupted local officials, and dubious (non-secure) voting machines, to sabotage the reelection of Donald Trump; and in no small part by using our enemies money (The Chinese Communist Party) Globalists, Silicon Valley, Big Tech, and of course the leftist media while undermining our laws and National Security! And all this after a false narrative of Russian Collusion with fabricated evidence to impeach a President who did nothing illegal in making an innocent phone call to Ukraine and to destroy his reputation in the courts of public opinion! Why, it was to cover up the real scandal of not Russia, but indeed China, which would have limited, (if openly investigated) Joe Biden and family for his run for Presidential office!
The dirt of these style politics is comparative to a dirty pot, calling the clean kettle black. Yet, that’s just what Progressives do, and be damned to anyone or any ethics which stands in their way! This is NOT Americanism, but rather Globalism at best and Espionage at its worst!
I think that Donald Trump is likely to be the last President who puts the interest of our country first; like we had in our past, up until Eisenhower – the President I was born under.
Since the 1960s, the Vietnam War, Abortion, Feminism, Homosexuality, Ethics and Morality have plummeted, with the possible exception of MLK’s lead on Civil Rights for the Black and other so-called ethnic communities.
With the dismantling of the family structure since antiquity, it was all put in effect by Marxists and Malcontents, primarily using academics and the media with (Global driven currency) platforms. The Cold War was also a war on information, the church, and the very fabric of our population. I shall never forget the North Vietnamese flag being waved in the streets while American lives were being sacrificed in the war on Communism! This anti-American sentiment had never been experienced before in this country, nor been broadcasted right into our living rooms for people to see!
So, instead of everyone banning together under the banner of Americanism, Communists sought to divide us in what today is called “identity Politics” and in the very same breath will try to play both side of the field and try to embrace unity, equality, and yet cultural diversity, focusing on our differences!?
In a content society Marxism cannot flourish, you must add adjudicators to sow discontent of the masses, making the Government ripe for a take over!
Education no longer teaches the pro-American values of our founder, rather they continually focus on the failings, greed, and selfishness of the darker side of our history. They focus on reparations, special considerations for ethnicity, gender, even financial status.
Why, because it gives Government power over the people and creates a greater dependency, just like the oppressed Native Americans of the 1800s!
This is a continual trap of a form of enslavement, rather than personal liberty and individual responsibility. A local law enforcement, small governments within States, Counties and Municipalities, help ensure we never have a “run away federal government” in which the people have no power over!
A one party system, narrative, and an abandonment of non-critical thinking, are required to hold such power against the will of the people. Ideally, a one party political system, media, financially controlled markets, resources (and environment) have been the most effective ways to a controlled population by an elitist ruling class, known as totalitarianism. This has never been about a right verse left issues in the world, rather it is about citizenry of a country verse enslavement!
The youth today need to understand these principles; and not just “go along to get along” in receiving good marks in school, social groups, virtue signaling, or becoming a media sensation. Or not only them, but those who do not subscribe to mass controlled media and governments, will all become enslaved; perhaps never to regain their personal liberties!
This is a fascinating video below: marking the significance of 911 to America, by Rabi Jonathan Cahn.
It is a warning for repentance; it shows the birth of our economic strength in New York when Henry Hudson sailed up the river and founded Manhattan with a trade station on September 11, 1609 this was “the gate” later having two “Twin Towers” the entrance to America’s economic power!
The Pentagon began on September 11, 1941 as a Military Superpower; this was predicated by God, to a nation’s founding once dedicated by Washington’s inauguration on 26 Wall Street, Financial District, Manhattan, New York City on April 30, 1789. Washington warned not to turn away from God, or we would face destruction.
The new financial group was known as the “Buttonwood” group (Sycamore tree) later called Wall Street. On September 11, 1789 Alexander Hamilton was named the first U.S. Secretary to the Treasury.
All this represents the blessings and downfall of America as a Superpower to the world, the symbolism is reflective of the warnings given to Israel before her destruction.
It was a Sycamore tree (the Biblical symbol of blessing) which was destroyed in Manhattan on September 11, 2001, along with the Pentagon as a wall of Military might. 9-11-2001: was only the beginning of judgment towards America in 7 year cycles– (Biblical Jubilee) which rather could have been a renewal of blessings if we had repented from our wickedness instead!
The Harbinger II : Part 1,2,3 with Dr. James Dobson
Maybe if we keep our mouths shut, no one will notice that we belong to the Lord…? That sounds like Peter, prior to Pentecost!
[PS; I forgot to mention energy & environmental controls as well – towards the end of the video.]
It is most interesting to me that the scriptures talk about a humble and contrite heart (faith of a child) being required to follow the Lord. In contrast to this, Pride and coupled with Elitism seems to me to be the way of controlling others – even as a small god. The “new world leader” will be revealed as a caring and loving sort towards humanity, but the Bible later speaks about an abrupt change of demeanor as one demanding to be worshipped as God: or face death! The first step in controlling people is to be able to track them, and that you cannot buy or sell without the “Mark of the Beast” (Satan). The Lord will crush him with the brightness of his coming, but in my estimation, we have to have a build up first towards global tracking and control – for the “Good” of all Humanity!
As one who was born under 48 stars in the American flag, I have watched the decline of a great nation ever since!
Powerful Leaders have conspired against free people since tribalism began in the world: Matthew 24:37-39 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Humanism, (anti-Christian) anti-Bible, within our society with the opening of the “establishment clause” with the growing of the Atheist and Feminist movement of the 1960s was propelled forward by people like Madalyn Murray O’Hair in 1962, changed the policy of mandatory prayers and Bible reading in Baltimore public schools: the area in which I grew up.
This “new religion” of humanism. had slowly migrated into our school systems after World War Two, primarily because of a teacher’s shortage within the United States at the time. Politically and Militarily, we had defeated the NAZI’s, yet Communism became our new enemy, and nuclear weapons our newest concern with an arms race and Cold War, which morphed into a political space race, including the moon landing in 1969 as put forth by JFK prior to his assassination.
What was NOT foreseen after World War Two, was the acceptance of what is now called “Cultural Marxism” within education, broadcasting, and the many civil liberty groups which enviably grew from a time of great changes.
Ultimately (spoken as a believer in the Gospel), it is not really about the “Nation States” which the Lord preordained after Babel; known as (ethos Biblically) a makeup of a certain people, culture, ideology, religion, and a common language. Rather history is about what the Lord God allows or disallows to transpire, and the “new Globalism” via U.N. mandates is taking form.
The Decline of Western Nationalism
I first witnessed the decline of U.S. Patriotism around 1968 during the Vietnam war. My Dad had a shop which sold American flags, and the sales dropped dramatically after the Tet offensive, never to return – except briefly after the 9-11 attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon. My wife and I had nearly completed our 20 years of military service after the attacks, and were shocked like everyone else, that civilian airliners were used for such destruction and loss of American life.
We both continued to do our part in defense of this Nation; and after returning home from orders cut under Operation Enduring Freedom, just over a year later I would suffer a near fatal heart attack ending my military career as a technician.
I really hate to have to write this next paragraph, because as a loyal soldier, Christian and nationalist; I never wanted to believe it possible that a “New World Order” first spoken publicly by George Bush, seems to me to have reared its ugly head within multiple events in an effort in transforming the world – to the revealing of Satan, and his minions to an unbelieving world!
To me, this is tragic, and increasingly unbelievable to one who actively supports the U.S. Constitution, and who’s family fault in the American Revolution. Yet this is a time of strong delusions, and we all must look at what may make us uncomfortable in the pursuance of a greater truth.
Psychologists call this our “Confirmation Biases” and we all choose to believe what makes us most comfortable, be it our politics, faith, and even our health.
I never wanted to believe that 9-11 was anything but a terrorist attack; yet more and more evidence shows that steal frame buildings have never come down, nor specifically pancaked due to the result of fire. With some mechanical (marine) engineering skill sets, including fuel, some firefighting, and metal stress understanding it is increasingly difficult to believe the “official” physical evidence of towers coming down based solely as a result of commercial airliners horrifically shearing into the upper floors of “two” world trade centers and the complete pulverized results of a nearly freefalling collapse!
Yesterday I saw a mime with Adolph Hitler on it, it read if science were followed instead of Christianity, Hitler would have never come to power. This enraged me, and I wrote “NAZI Eugenics (science) caused Hitler to come to power, not Christianity fool!” The Nuremberg trials, and specifically the Doctors Trail of 22 NAZI doctors who were thought instrumental in establishing the Third Reich were based on this so called “science”.
In my view, when you invoke “humanistic science” (evolution) as supreme, instead of the laws of God (natural law) as supreme; you have just made the laws of man superior to an all knowing God, the creator and keeper of the universe. And both the NAZI’s and the Communists invoke this!
For the lack of a better term, I will call these people “Power Brokers”. Control of humanity is the ultimate goal. First must go individual liberties, which our founding fathers understood in depth! Then free speech, worship, the independent press, enterprise, property, water, food, energy resources and medicine. The staples of any free peoples. The “information age’ has enabled such a lofty goal, with now 24/7 programming continually pumped into the population, and I suspect monitoring of people will be next!
This leads me into another point, in taking away of individual liberties for the collective. And what better way to do it than in the name of science, health care: the supreme issue for the survival and health and wellbeing of all peoples!
Just like the NAZI’s championed Eugenics using “science”, todays Power Brokers globally, also attempt to use science to address the environment, population growth, energy, food, water, air, and even temperature! It is a one size fits all type of control of money and individuals.
As Madeline Albright once slipped up by saying; (Paraphrase) Christianity is the greatest single threat to our country – (read) progressive agenda. So, in my estimation, anything is allowed in pluralistic hedonism, apart from Christianity just like in ancient Rome! The reason is because belief in a higher power is unacceptable to all power brokers who are threatened by such a mindset!
Oh Lord, I hate to say it; but even this global pandemic involving COVID-19 which is very real, has brought down not only this nation, but most all nations globally. I would rather believe this was not planned – or invented yet this does not appear to be the case. And even if this was a naturally occurring phenomenon, why are drugs like Hydroxy Quarantine developed in 1955 for fighting microbes in drinking water so resisted and limited to U.S. doctors who feel it may be effective in certain patients?
I will leave the medical observations to more qualified people than myself; but just like the 9-11 attacks on the Twin Towers, this “Wuhan Virus” seems to me like more of a “Plandemic” by Global Power Brokers, pharmaceutical’s, and high tech, to gain control, rather than the “caring loving global community” which they pretend to be! And to hell with God’s appointed nation states says these Devil’s children!
Wishing everyone a solemn Memorial Day!
Matthew 24:6–7 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
If we agree that all of this lockdown fervor can be used as a means of conditioning the American people to willingly give up some of their liberties and rights, then the discussion naturally goes to the question, “What are we being conditioned for?” We’ll answer that question in this episode of Activate America, patriotically staying active during COVID-19 lockdown. With that question in mind, let us introduce the May 18, 2020 issue of The New American magazine, titled “Forced Vaccines and Digital IDs.”

The god of this world is coming, and already at work within our midst.
Constant media “suggestion” subverts the mind for easier control…
Anyway. that’s what my dream was all about, a prisoner in my own home!
Does this sound like Paul thinks that God’s Grace is being on the Broad Road?
2 Corinthians 12:9
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Confident, convincing, speak well? You would make a great politician, salesman, or even a Cult leader, if you are good at twisting the truth to win people over towards your way of thinking! Only the demagoguery of Lordship Salvation, would call the grace of God a doctrine of the broad road! The Bible warns about such people, so you mustn’t be lazy in checking out the contexts and content of what’s being said!
The most heart wrenching thing to me was in making high marks as an Elder, yet only to be rejected by the Church. I have struggled long and hard to be of service to the Lord, but in all this time “the establishment” seems to dismiss or even marginalize the things of God, learned at the basal or radical level. Perhaps I have missed something, in moving in spiritual power; but for the life of me I don’t know what it is, or what else I can do?
I dedicate this video to a “diamond in the rough” old waterman I knew,
who never compared himself to others.
We would often speak about the Lord while fishing.
See you again my brother!
Trump-Tribulation? Is based on my understanding of history and the development of industrialized cultures. Without the ability to harvest fossil fuels for heat engines, metal production, and electricity the industrial revolution would have never taken place, and even the discoveries in modern medicine would never have occurred. The Lord God made all things in which man has developed, and this was no accident to the modern age which we have enjoyed. Unfortunately, Humanism wishes to be the dominating philosophy within the postmodern world and has “dethroned” the idea of using the Bible and a righteous God, so that politically motivated Communism might overcome this “religion” of truth – with a lie, leading humanity ever closer to the final trumpet.
I unquestionably believe that being partakers with Christ’s blood atonement on the cross is the only way in which we are made acceptable to the Lord. The whole of the Gospel depends upon the shedding of blood for the remission of sin. If men make religious ceremonies which detract from this life-giving truth, they have perhaps even unknowingly, taken away from the truth of the “Lamb who was slain” in our behalves. In this video I “hyper focus” upon the blood of Christ at the atonement, and wonder why anyone would detract from the Lamb’s blood which was shed for us?
The Passover lamb was the sacrifice given at the temple for sins of the jews for that year. Since the temple was destroyed, the jew is no longer permitted to eat lamb at passover.
Lent and Passover have many similarities in recognizing our sin struggle and new birth by the atonement in what Christ has done for us as the lamb of God on the cross; which we celebrate at Easter.
To me, although most would disagree; it seems that eating of Fish on good friday, in observance of Christ hanging on the cross; would be akin to not partaking in the feast of the Lamb: who is Christ, much like the Jew will not partake in eating lamb (any longer at Passover) as they will not recognise the heavenly tabernacle now seated with the blood of Christ on the bemis seat!?
Is not eating lamb, but fish on Fridays actually symbolizing or rejecting the atonement of Christ in action? Even Holy Communion while partaking symbolically in the body and blood of Christ, in remembrance of him; was Christ’s own commandment to his disciples. So, to the contrary would be the sustaining from red meat in which the Roman Catholic tradition insist upon!
Is it just me, or do these other religious traditions deny Christ’s atonement on the cross? And if so, I would submit to the listener that remorse for sin can never be forgiven without the spiritual partaking of receiving the blood and body of the Lamb. The Sanctimonious actions of having remorse for our sins; achieves nothing without partaking in the act of forgiveness by the blood of the lamb!
And although Passover and Lent are religious ceremonies conducted in order to honor our Lord, they are but worthless without taking the blood and body unto ourselves. To me, that is a Satanic twist which purposely misses the point of the cross.
Who are the people trying to deceive if possible, even the elect?
Who are the ones who seek to “deceive the many?” We read many times in the scriptures of false Christ’s,
deceitful workers, false prophets, false brethren, deceivers, wolves, false shepherds,
false teachers, etc.
How can we recognize them? What distinguishes them as such? For sure, we know
that there are many of them. Jesus tells us so. He not only tells us so, but He also
identifies them for us!
In Matthew 7:22, Jesus says that “MANY will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord, Was it
not in Your name that we prophesy, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your
name do many wonderful works?
Then I will say to them, I never knew you. Depart from Me, workers of iniquity.”
Jesus singles out their marks as to who these MANY people are:
1) they will/or have prophesied (taught the Bible; preached sermons) in His name
2) drove out many demons in His name
3) have done many wonderful works in His name
Also, something similar in Matthew 24:5: “For MANY shall be coming in My name,
saying, I am the Christ and shall be deceiving MANY.”

Like little children, we are powerless, handicapped and disabled to enter in with Christ within our human (or natural) abilities.
Rather, we are totally dependent in faith on the love grace and mercy of our heavenly Father, who provided his Son Jesus in our behalves!
Without Salvation by Grace alone in what Christ has done, we are powerless to enter into the kingdom of heaven by simple childlike faith. This is why many will be gathered up and cast into the fire to be burnt, as they had not believed upon the only name which we might be saved; Jesus Christ.
You have heard it said that “one man’s cult is another man’s religion”… This is only true to the natural mind; however, the Bible teaches in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Our relationship with the Lord is key, as in Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. This is not “necessarily” speaking about fleshly desires of the heart, rather it is speaking about being shown the infinite mercy, love, and truth in being grounded in the Lord, and sometimes in receiving what we desire.
This is a spiritual condition which only the Lord can show us, (often in doctrines) and is not found in the futility of our natural understanding.
The Saint’s White Raiment only obtained in Christ: is unspotted by works of our flesh.
In my estimation, we only have two choices in how to walk “in Christ” ; we either realize our utter dependency on “Christ’s work alone” within our lives, or we attempt and apply a type of legalism in achieving a superior walk toward perfection, while “using” the Holy Spirit’s assistance.
To the natural understanding within our souls, this may look to be a good option. Yet I firmly believe, this is like taking something blemished and stained of the flesh, and attaching it to an unblemished and unstained article yet expecting it to remain pure.
No place which I’m aware of in the Bible speaks of taking a filthy rag and then laundering it with an unstained garment.
Perhaps I should have called this “Getting a Grip” in my understanding …
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Perfection in Christ? (Texted)
I have walked with the Lord for over 45 years and have had multiple exposures to different Biblical viewpoints. In all this time I have never met anyone who fully and completely comprehends God’s working of salvation for God’s elect.
However, I have met many who in their own conceits think that they understand the fulness of the scriptures; and even worse are some who think that they have become so sanctified – as to no longer make errors in judgment! The ladder types are the most conceited, proud, and arrogant of all type heretics, that they become dangerous to many!
In my view, the Apostle Paul understood and expressed better than anyone the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. Yet the Lord gave him a “thorn in the flesh” (weakness) which tormented him and kept him dependent on the grace of God alone by faith!
I’m thinking to myself recently; that anyone who espouses a near perfect walk with the Lord; could not possibly even know Him, or perhaps at the very least has blinded themselves in prideful delusions within their relationship to the Lord. The mark of a mature follower of Christ, I have discovered is only found in human humility and love towards others, and not found in judgmentalism when using the scriptures!!!
I will not belabor this point, but I do encourage people to use Paul as an example of not being “puffed up” in his own understanding!
