Get involved!

We hear many speaking out, hoping to do whatever they can to save what little is left of our federal and sometimes state governments. It is not likely they will have any success at all, but maybe it is still worth trying. There may yet be a larger chance of success at the county and city levels, but only if they all wake up and join together as one. But that is politics, nothing but worldly government which will always be totally evil, until Christ returns to rule this world with truth and perfect justice.

Even if this government were to be totally rebuilt, so that it is better than it was two hundred years ago, it will not change what is in store for this world. Evil shall rule for a time, how much longer we do not know, but the Lord does, when evil has run its full course, he shall return as prophesied. God's word is truth and shall never fail! we have been well warned what is in store for Christians at the end, nothing will stop it from coming to pass. Knowing what God's word has to say, gives a different view on what we see taking place today. More of what you are seeing, is the world preparing for the end then you might first think.

Instead of trying to change that which cannot be changed, we should focus on what can be changed, you can be busy about the Lord's work, no matter what he has called you to do in this world. Saving the souls of the lost, is the work of every Christian, not just those called to the office of Evangelist. Few also do any work within the church, but leave it all for the Pastor, and maybe a few Sunday school teachers. There is room for everyone to be involved in the Lord's work at every church. It is not a place to go and hear a Pastor speak once a week!

If you want to see things begin to change, then get involved in your church, and be an evangelist yourself, bringing friends, family and others you know to church with you. Begin spreading the Good News throughout the area in which you live, there is no need to go to some other country to spread the word. Many of the things Christians don't like in the States, are there because they sat back and did nothing, well it is long past time for every Christian to stand up and become a bright light for the Lord!

Near future

Some of the things I have been speaking of are bound to come to pass, but which ones? And how bad will it be? The States have to go through the balance every so often just to keep the economy working, if the government steps in and tries to prevent it, the result is a delayed balancing that is far worse then it had to be. The government has spent trillions of your money trying to do just that! They stole the money from you and gave it to large corporations that couldn't manage to run a profitable business. What they could not steal, they printed, reducing the value of the dollar even more with each one they printed.

Now the people of the fifty States are going to have to pay for the evil deeds of the federal government, this time they cannot go and start another war thinking that will get them out of it. Too many nations don't want anything to do with their worthless dollars, and they have caused too many of our own companies to shut down. They are in a real fix when they can't make it at home and no one wants their dollars!

Most of the people had little to do with creating this problem, but we are the ones who will have to pay for it. Everything has been slowly crumbling for over twenty years, there was plenty of time to fix the problem, but instead they chose to continue making it worse. There are many reasons floating around as to why, the main one is to force the creation of a 'North American Union' combining Canada, the States and Mexico for all purposes into one nation. If that should happen you can forget all of your rights and freedoms, the constitution will no longer exist nor will the sovereign and independent States. Do you think if such a thing comes to pass 'Freedom Of Religion' is going to be enjoyed as it is now? We would look at the former USSR as a good place to live!

For now, no one can prepare for what is to come, yet there are many things which can be done. Gathering folks together who share the same beliefs can help a great deal however it takes place. Getting out of large cities, to a place of at least no more than large towns is a very good idea. Large cities always suffer the worst during hard times, partly because they have no way to support any of their own needs. Learning to take care of the basic things in life is something that should have been known before ever getting out of grammar school, yet most folks today know nothing of it. They depend on stores and government for everything from birth to death. Teach yourself as much as you can, together with those around you it is surprising what we can survive! Well, this is another area that could easily be turned into a complete manual, which are available in book stores and on the inter-net. No matter what we think will happen, we must prepare for life to be much worse, then we will be better off should it not happen. To go the other way and not prepare hoping for the best, is asking for disaster.

Christmas Present

We will forget the worldly things that have been added to Christ's Mass for now. This is a time most Christians will be celebrating the birth of their Lord and Savior. While not something any of the early churches practiced, it is an event truly worth remembering. Only one time in the earth's history has such a thing taken place, and Luke in his account gives the best record of what took place, while Mark does not start his account until Christ's baptism by his cousin John in the Jordan river.

So, wherever you live, and whatever the local customs, do your best to make sure they honor the one and only Son of God, he is the only reason for this up coming Holy Day now called Christmas. In whatever way you and your family honor Christ, God bless each of you, as you praise and worship the Lord for all that he has given to each of us during this past year.

Pearl Harbor

One of the big cases of the government lying to the people for no reason other than attacking Japan and Germany. They never said a word about what they had been doing to Japan and Germany, instead they claim we were attacked. If the people had only known the truth, we would not have been in the war, and many politicians would have stood trial for treason!

If they lie to start wars, and to cover up so many other evil deeds, don't you think they will lie about anything if it serves their purpose? No one should think for one moment that this government cares about them, you are nothing to them but a barn yard animal. Your freedom no longer exists, and you live only so long as they think you might be useful, so be a good slave and obey your federal and state masters.

While they hate all religion, Christians and Israel are at the top of their list, and will be the first to be banned. Many claim they have already built the prisons, or might they be death camps like Hitler had? Any way you look at it, before the Last Days, Christians will be hated around the world, if this is still a nation (in truth a union of fifty States) at that time, it will not be an exception. we have seen society move a long way in that direction during the past sixty years.

If you think it will make a difference, then stand up and try to force the feds to return to the constitution we started with, before they began to butcher it, before they passed so many laws no one has any idea what they are, and few have even looked to see how many violate the constitution. All laws that violate the constitution are void before even being voted on. And that goes for these presidential orders as well, and all other secret laws. It is far more likely if you speak too loudly you will find yourself on their list to be rounded up like cattle.

Now when you hear of Pearl Harbor Day, you can remember it was when Japan finally struck back after all the feds had been doing to them and Germany, not the other way around. There is plenty of information available about it now, partly because of the 'freedom of information act'.

Christmas Past

Christmas is really a Catholic Holy Day called Christ's Mass. When the Protestants broke away from the Catholic Church, they also began changing every name they could so it became Christmas and they could pretend it was not a Catholic Holy Day which was also changed to holiday so they could try to bring the whole world in without admitting it was a Christian celebration and not the Winter Solstice. Many practices of the Druids and other local religions were distorted a little and added either by the Catholics or Protestants, depending on where you were.

As the years passed, more stories and customs were added and ever less of the truth. What you see in recent years is filled with false religion, and for all purposes should be stayed away from by all Christians. Christ was not born in the winter, but in the spring. And there are no cases of anyone's birthday being celebrated in God's Word, while other religions are filled with it. As for the gifts, those who brought them were not called wise men, but Magi, their equivalent of magicians or astrologers. They also did not bring these gifts to Bethlehem, but two years later to Jerusalem. He was born in a stable, and at that time many of them were small hollowed out caves for the animals.

Other then that, there is almost nothing that is thought of today as having to do with Christmas that was there in the beginning. It is in truth, a Mass to honor Christ's birth, and nothing more. No giving of presents, no feasts, no merry making or other celebrating. If you must, return to a Christ honoring service, giving praise and worship your Lord and God, and remove all of the demonic activities that have been added to Christ's Mass!

501c3

The following has been taken from Tags:

I have spoken about this, but thought you should see it straight from the IRS. Anyone who turned their church into a corporation knew about this and what 501c3 would do to them.


Churches Need Not Apply

In order to be considered for tax-exempt status by the IRS an organization must fill out and submit IRS Form 1023 and 1024. However, note what the IRS says regarding churches and church ministries, in Publication 557:

Some organizations are not required to file Form 1023. These include:
Churches, interchurch organizations of local units of a church, conventions or associations of churches, or integrated auxiliaries of a church, such as a men?s or women?s organization, religious school, mission society, or youth group. These organizations are exempt automatically if they meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3).
Churches Are Automatically Tax-Exempt

According to IRS Code ? 508(c)(1)(A):

Special rules with respect to section 501(c)(3) organizations.
(a) New organizations must notify secretary that they are applying for recognition of section 501(c)(3) status.
(c) Exceptions.(1) Mandatory exceptions. Subsections (a) and (b) shall not apply to?
(A) churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches.

This is referred to as the "mandatory exception" rule. Thus, we see from the IRS? own publications, and the tax code, that it is completely unnecessary for any church to apply for tax-exempt status. In the IRS? own words a church ?is automatically tax-exempt.?

Churches Are ?Automatically Tax-Deductible

And what about tax-deductibility? Doesn?t a church still need to become a 501c3 so that contributions to it can be taken as a tax deduction? The answer is no! According to IRS Publication 526:

Organizations That Qualify To Receive Deductible Contributions
You can deduct your contributions only if you make them to a qualified organization. To become a qualified organization, most organizations other than churches and governments, as described below, must apply to the IRS.
In the IRS? own words a church ?is automatically tax-deductible.?

Churches Have a Mandatory Exception To Filing Tax Returns

Not only is it completely unnecessary for any church to seek 501c3 status, to do so becomes a grant of jurisdiction to the IRS by any church that obtains that State favor. In the words of Steve Nestor, IRS Sr. Revenue Officer (ret.):

"I am not the only IRS employee who?s wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn?t owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they?ve always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don?t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean to be free of government control."

from the Forward of In Caesar's Grip, by Peter Kershaw


I hope this opens a few eyes to the truth, and to what the major denominations are doing to them, and everything they thought they were giving for Christ's work here on earth.

Looking forward

There was once a time not so long ago that most wanted to be seen as a Christian, even if they weren't. Since the 1960's that has faded away, until now most don't want to be known as a Christian, even if they are! If any one thinks this is going to get better, they had better think again. Many of the churches no longer teach the truth, though there are still enough that do, especially local non-denominational churches.

The real point is, as time goes on, we keep getting closer to what prophecy calls the end times, the tribulation and Daniel's 70th week. There will be true Christians until that day when both dead and living Christians rise to meet our Lord, but don't expect to find many if there are any at all in the churches of that time. The world under Satan as it is now, hates Christians and Christ. But the Holy Spirit will be here with us always, and the work the Lord has given to the saints is not finished. How much longer before evil has run its full course and the Lord returns?

As we approach the end, Christians will find themselves ever more hated by society and government, but the same has been true in many countries, yet the Good News continues to spread and many folks are saved. What will you do if that persecution comes knocking on your door? Will you stand strong in the Lord? There may well be hard times ahead in north America, not just for Christians, but for everyone. Are you prepared for such times? Have you noticed how little your worthless paper money buys? Not one nation that has allowed this to happen survived for long. Our chances of repairing the damage are very small and shrinking daily! We should all have seen this coming long ago, and there were some who did and even tried to spread the warning. But most ignored them or refused to believe them. You may yet have time, if you stand up and do something to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Any way you look at it there will be no recovery without at least a period of hard times for everyone. Those who wait to do anything until the worst is already here do not have a chance. Those who continue to live in big cities will see the worst of what is to come, I hope you are not one of them!

Winter

Well, we have just past what many call Thanksgiving, though I doubt any of them were giving thanks while they were so busy stuffing their faces and watching sports. Maybe if they went on a fast instead and spent the time giving thanks to God for all he did for them during the past year. Maybe if they took all of that food and gave it to the hungry and homeless folks. Little chance of seeing that happen

Now winter with its short days and long nights is closing in on us again. As we approach the winter solstice, a time when so many religions celebrated the death and rebirth of the sun, we also get ever closer to a celebration that at one time was thought to be Christian. It never was, but the Catholic church did try and give it a Christian meaning, if only they had kept out everything they borrowed from the world's false religions. As time goes on, it has ever less to do with anything Christian.

If there was a day to start a new year, it would be the winter solstice or spring equinox. Seems they chose the winter solstice, but started the year one week late, They were probably afraid of the solstice celebrations and the new year being at the same time. It doesn't matter too much, there is really nothing special about when a year starts. But for a long time, the new year has been used as a reason for big parties and getting drunk, two things we can do without. I am gathering some information on Christmas customs and traditions, so there will be some posts with them during the next month.

Maybe this rain season will bring a little more normal rain and snow for everyone across the country, we have had enough of drought in one area and excess in another. It is something for everyone to pray for. This country is also in great need of prayer and that is something that every Christian can be doing!

A few thoughts

It would be so easy, to tear into many groups, individuals and beliefs, shredding them like hamburger. They are evil, sometiimes openly so, others coating it so that it drips with sugar. It may taste rich and sweet as it goes down, but turns into a bitter evil poison in your soul. False prophets and teachers, spreading their evil across the internet and air waves, in the bookstores, and even in your churches and schools. Be careful who you listen too, make sure they speak the truth. This applies to everyone, nothing is to be accepted without your knowing what they say is Truth!

Most folks will have a list of groups or people come to mind when reading this. And among Christians, we would find many repeated over and over. Yet they find no lack of followers, or those willing to invite them in listening to their every word. There is something very wrong within the church when these false prophets and teachers have such an easy time spreading their lies. It is long past time for the truth to take first place in and out of the church. When the Truth is your foundation, the whole building will be strong, make sure Christ is your cornerstone.

Sometimes things are just local custom or tradition, often there is nothing wrong with them. But neither custom nor tradition is ever to be allowed to take the place of Truth. The truth must always come first, and Jesus Christ is the Truth. If anything does not agree with the teachings Christ gave to us, it must be thrown out as false doctrine, do not allow such teachers to even open their mouth within your churches, schools or homes. I can only hope that all of you have taken the time to know the Truth, and keep it constantly in your soul. It is your major defense against all forms of evil. And it is your sword with which to fight against evil.

Persecution

Knowing how much there is around the world, I did a search to find what there was on the web within the fifty States. It will surprise you, especially if you do not limit it to just Christian. In past posts, I spoke on hate and rejection, persecution is just another and often stronger version of the same thing. If allowed to grow it becomes a cancer, and as we have seen in other countries people begin to die because of it.

We cannot allow this to happen in the States or Canada. No matter what one group thinks of another, is no reason to ignore it if we see them being persecuted. At this time most persecution in the States, is directed at cults, religions other than Christian, Negroes and folks who are GLBT. Maybe this does not include you (yet), but the persecution against Christians is on the rise. Many of these cases are in schools and other buildings where the government has any control at all. Also, individuals and groups such as the ACLU are filing more cases against Christians and anything having to do with Christ.

Unless you want to see your churches and Christian schools closed permanently, it is past time for all of you to stand as one and become a strong force to put an end to all persecution in north America. If it is allowed to grow, it is only a matter of time before you find yourself among the persecuted. You may even find yourself thrown in jail or prison for your belief in Jesus Christ in what was once called a Christian nation. You cannot forget about this and think someone else will stand up and do it for you!
