Check out this episode of “Prophecy in the News”.  Host Gary Stearman interviews criminal investigator and former LA Deputy Sheriff Terry Cook.  Terry discusses his new book “Beast Tech”,  which deals with the creation of a tyrannical world controlled by technology.  Beast Tech refers to the beast in the Bible that deceives the world in chapter 13 of “The Revelation”.  Author Terry Cook doesn’t address the symbolism in Revelation but uses his expertise in law enforcement to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that public and private organizations are creating a tyrannical world system.  The purpose of all the posts in this website is to illustrate the manifestation of the beast in world, the manner in which it operates, and open the eyes of those called to speak truth to the lost.  Let everyone hear who has ears to hear, NOW is the time to get right with God.

As a Christian, I believe it’s my duty to work for a just, moral society based on the rule of law.  That’s why I created this website.  But the most important knowledge is found in the Bible and manifested in the belief that Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah sent by God to redeem the world.  I recommend Discovering the Jewish Jesus led by Messianic Jewish Rabbi K.A. Schneider.  He follows in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul who said Jews and Gentiles are one in Christ, and is committed to building a Christ based bridge between these two groups, which historically, have been suspicious of one another.  And like Paul, Rabbi Schneider draws a clear line between legalism and the gospel of grace, which frees Christians from condemnation while they press toward the goal of becoming more like Christ.  You will be touched by the Gospel of grace and love of Christ coming through Rabbi  Schneider.

I also recommend In Touch Ministry with Dr. Charles Stanley, and The Christian Worship Hour with Pastor Harold Salem.  Pastor Salem is 92 years old and still going strong.  In my opinion, Joyce Meyer has one of the most powerful messages of Christian discipleship on television.  As a young girl, Joyce was sexually molested by her father.  The pain and shame could have destroyed her life but now she has one of the largest Christian ministries in America.   Like Rabbi Schneider, the aforementioned ministries demonstrate God’s love for humanity.  Psalm 82: 3,4 says “Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy.  Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked.”  Another interesting source is the book Godonomics which illustrates the Biblical principles behind private property rights and market economies based on moral principles.

Click here and you’ll find the Bible in hundreds of languages, both audio and text.  Read, listen, believe and receive forgiveness and eternal life in paradise with a God that loves you more than you can imagine.  If you’re new to the Bible, start in the Gospel of John, the fourth book of the New Testament, it’s about the life and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.  If you would rather begin with some basic common sense advice by which to achieve a successful life, start in Proverbs in the Old Testament.

But do not be deceived, whether you believe it or not, we will all have to stand before our Creator and give an account for our life.  All of us are guilty of sin and deserve condemnation, but God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to pay our debt of sin by dying on the cross.  And WHOSOEVER believes in Him shall receive an undeserved pardon and eternal life in heaven.  God wants you to know that He loves you personally just as you are, so don’t turn down His unconditional pardon.  Revelation 3:20 says “Behold I (Christ) stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…” (to your heart).  To do this, pray a short prayer confessing your sins to God and invite Jesus Christ to become the Lord and Savior of your life.  Making Jesus Christ Lord of your life means changing old sinful habits that previously governed your life.  This requires getting your thoughts, emotions, and actions lined up with the will of God, which is expressed in the teachings of Christ.

The teachings of Christ are found in the first four books of the Bible’s New Testament.  These four books, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, are called the gospels which means “good news”  After ascending into heaven, Christ personally appeared to the apostle Paul and revealed the mystery of the gospel of grace.  So it’s very important to read Paul’s letters, a.k.a. epistles, which are the books Romans through Philemon in the New Testament.  Also, get involved in a church that teaches the Bible as the inspired Word of God.  The more committed you are to following Christ the better your life will be.  Studying and applying the Bible in your life will produce benefits beyond anything you can imagine, it’s a promise from God.

The Apostle Paul sums in up in 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 : 

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 God through Christ is reconciling the world unto himself, not counting their trespasses against them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, and since God is making his appeal through us, we encourage you on behalf of Christ that you be reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him (Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

The Christian faith is unique in the world because God became flesh in Jesus Christ and assumed the role of a humble servant who willingly took the sins of the entire world on himself.  The perfect love of Christ, who washed the feet of his disciples and shed his blood for the forgiveness of sins, enables anyone who believes in Him to stand righteous before God.  Praise and thanks be to God our father and our Lord Jesus Christ who was crucified, buried, resurrected, and then ascended into heaven.  He sits at the right hand of God and is our great high priest who, knowing all the temptations of the flesh, intercedes on our behalf with the most High God.  Believe in Him, receive Him, and you will be set free.  God bless you and the United States of America.

                  DOES GOD OPPOSE “BIG GOVERNMENT”?

Most churches refrain from mixing politics with Christian teaching.  Our first priority is spreading the message of salvation via the Gospel and feeding Christ’s flock, but the law was given to Moses by God and governments administer God’s law.  So Christians have a responsibility to see that governments administer the law in a manner that is just and moral.  This is particularly true in a Constitutional Republic that is based on the consent of its citizens.  Even the apostle Paul stood up for his rights as a Roman citizen and used those rights to advance the Gospel.  Christ overcame the world but we are called to witness to the lost.  By holding up Christian values in in the political process, Christ is raised up and God the Father can draw the lost to Him.

Also, the gospel was instrumental in forming the principles of freedom codified in America’s founding documents.  Acts 10:34 says: Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons, meaning God does not treat a king any different than a slave.  Galatians 3:28 expresses a similar principle: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.  These principles of the gospel were revolutionary in the first century Roman Empire where 20% of the people were slaves and the Roman Emperor was considered a god.  These principles of equality were expressed in America’s Declaration of Independence where Thomas Jefferson said all people are created equal, and the Creator endowed everyone certain unalienable rights.

America was founded on principles of limited government and there’s Biblical evidence supporting a limited government role in people’s lives.  Prior to the era of Jewish kings, the Jewish people were ruled by priests and judges.  Samuel was a popular and Godly judge but when his sons became corrupt, the Jewish people demanded a king.  God preferred the more limited form of government under priests and judges and considered the people’s demand for a king a rejection of his rule.  Chapter 8 in 1 Samuel tells the story.  The following is from the King James version of the Bible, click on the verse for alternate translations.

1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.

2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.

3 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.

4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,

5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.

7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

10 And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.

11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.

22 And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

 Jesus Christ took the idea of limited government even farther than the model of priests and judges.  In Luke 12: 57-59, Jesus said we should judge ourselves and thereby avoid the need for a judge.

57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

Jesus is advocating for self government based on a moral conscience directed by God, which is the most limited form of government.  Morality is the key to a successful limited government like that codified in America’s founding documents.  WILLIAM J. FEDERER is a nationally known speaker, best-selling author, and president of Amerisearch, Inc., a publishing company dedicated to researching America’s noble heritage.  He wrote a book titled “America’s God and Country, Encyclopedia of Quotations”, which is based on his research of all State Constitutions and other historical documents.  His work refutes those who believe the framers of America’s Constitutional Republic supported separation of church and state.  God was an integral part of State and Federal governments, which was the moral foundation that made limited government, and self government, possible.  We must restore the framers intent regarding the first amendment, i.e., freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

  1. First off I want to say ехcellеnt blog!
    I haԁ a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

  2. It only takes you 10 to 15 minutes to organize your thoughts? You’re doing great! I’ve found that the more one studies and thinks about a particular topic, the easier it is to organize thoughts and express them. It can be useful to make an outline before starting to write. The main thing is to keep writing.
