Glenn Beck’s Bold Predictions

Glenn-Beck2-620x312

In the Last Days there shall be Wars and Rumors of Wars

Matthew 24:6

Glenn Beck is well-known for making ominous predictions and describing them in detail on his numerous chalkboards. On his radio program Tuesday, Beck added to one of his boldest predictions ever and showed why he thinks World War III could be in the making.

In 2011, when he was still at Fox News, Beck said the “Arab Spring” would not usher in peace, prosperity and democracy, as many were saying. Rather, Beck said the protests would become “contagious, cascade, sweep the Middle East, and begin to destabilize Europe and the rest of the world.”

Time has proven him to be correct. But Beck prays he is wrong on what comes next.

Beck said Tuesday that one of the first manifestations of the instability hitting Europe — which he predicted in 2011 — is the push to “restore the Soviet borders.”

“Next,” Beck continued, “our enemies will see our lack of unity, military and financial resolve, and [they will] collapse and transform the U.S. and the West.”

He said in a bleak tone: “The new world order will be China, Russia, socialist outliers, and poverty zones … Happy Tuesday.”

Beck explained how he arrived at the prediction, reminding listeners that former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson recently said the Russians approached the Chinese with a plan to help collapse the U.S. economy in 2008.

China wasn’t on board at the time because it had too much invested in the United States, Beck said. But it has since begun to scale back its investments and even become “hostile” because of “what we have done with their money.”

Beck remarked: “China and Russia are beginning to work together, and both China and Russia are beginning to trade outside of the U.S. dollar, which is something entirely new and very, very dangerous because once they get off the dollar … the world will get off of the dollar.”

Another significant event to note is Poland reportedly calling up its army reservists.

“The reason why that is happening is because of what has happened in Crimea,” Beck said. “Anybody who is in a former Soviet state sees the writing on the wall, that Putin can go in and do whatever he wants and nobody is going to stop him.”

Beck has long maintained that the globe is on the road to World War III, whether it U.S. military involvement in Syria that causes it, or conflict with Russia.

“Here are your choices,” Beck said. “Do nothing and look at, possibly, World War III. Because what you will see is, Russia will start to sweep across and gather its old satellites — and then possibly more than its old satellites — and we will have the same situation that we had on our hands in World War II … So you can either sit it out and do nothing, which is quite honestly my recommendation … or you can get involved in World War III.”

We are not alone,….God is on our side!

god-government-77-cover-photoWords of Wisdom by AFVet

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Here are words that were written many, many years ago to give a warning to us today.

Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law ?
They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Yes that came from the Bible. specifically Psalm 94: 20-23.

Isn’t it pertinent to the predicament we find ourselves in today ?

Isn’t innocent blood being shed by abortions ?
Isn’t there an attack on the Christians in this country and across the world ?
Isn’t it obvious that we are being decimated by a lawless regime ?

The ones that are perpetrating these abominations on God’s people will not get away with it as the last verse states.

This Nation was founded as a nation that respects all religions and the practice thereof.
The persecution of one is not to be allowed.
Freedom of religion is a simple concept in my mind.

This Nation was designed to be a Nation of laws, not of men.

Too bad the men have overruled the laws that were initially set forth and essentially choose to ignore them.

We are not alone,….God is on our side.

The Atheist War on Christmas and Religious Freedom

1480521_332834206854504_1918540023_n

Atheists vs God

Only in America can you find a movement of People who aren’t satisfied with the Freedom they have to Believe or Not Believe, but rather have to go on the attack against the beliefs of others. In my view this is just another Progressive/Liberal attempt to break down the Moral Fiber of America.

myth

Two generations ago something called Secular Humanism began to creep into our Society and our School Systems across the Nation. This along with the re-writing of  American History, a crusade began  in our schools to indoctrinate our children with a God-less and Corrupted philosophy. The simple fact that Laws were enacted to remove Prayer and the teaching of Biblical History and Values from our schools is proof positive of this evil agenda perpetrated by the Socialists living in America.

Evolution has been taught in our Public Schools and Collages as a Theory for some time now.  My question is,  why is not Creation also being taught right along side of Evolution as an equal Theory?  A Higher Power could certainly be introduced in such a way as to not push any one particular Religion or Belief System.

One Solitary Life that Changed the Whole World 

Here is a Man who was Born in an Obscure Village, the Child of a Peasant Woman. He grew up in another obscure village where He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He never went to college. He never visited a big city. He never traveled more than two hundred miles from the place where He was born. He did none of those things one usually associated with greatness. He had no credentials but himself…

He was only thirty-three when the tide of Public Opinion turned against Him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While dying, His executioners gambled for his clothing, the only piece of property He had on earth. When He was dead, He was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the Central Figure of the Human Race and the Leader of mankind’s progress. All the Armies that have ever marched, all the Navies that ever sailed, all the Parliaments that ever sat and all the Kings that ever Reigned put together have not affected the life on earth of mankind as Powerfully as that One Solitary Life.

My Enlightening Encounter at the County Fair

2010839-portrait-of-the-elderly-woman-on-the-park-bench

Yesterday I went to the County Fair with my oldest son and his family to enjoy a day watching the grand children’s wide eyed excitement of the wonders to be seen at a County Fair.  After a few hours of walking the grounds and taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful event I decided to take a break on a park bench where I sat next to a senior lady who seemed to have the same idea as me.

What happened next will remain etched in my mind for the rest of my days.

Shortly after taking a seat at the opposite end of the park bench this this soft spoken lady turned to me and said, I enjoy just sitting here people watching these days but I can’t help but notice very few are smiling as they walk by.  She then asked if I have noticed the same thing to which I replied, yes I do, I see it also.  She then continued on to say it is as if they know something very bad is about to happen and they are not quite sure what. Again I replied, I see it too.

After a short pause she turned to me and said the America you and I once knew is lost and a terrible time is about to befall us all. 

These people walking by can feel it but you and I have lived long enough to know what is happening.  She then asked, are you a Christian?  I replied that I was and that I too know what is about to happen.  She smiled softly and went on to say it is too late to turn back the hands of time. 

The American people have fallen for a great deception and walk about refusing to believe that a great evil has taken hold of our country.

Somewhat taken back by this whole conversation I could not help but ask what she was planning to do about it.  She simply replied that she had thought about becoming a ‘Prepper’ but soon realized that in today’s age of technology there was no longer any way to escape the government scrutiny of our lives. 

She then went on to tell me a short story about an experience she had using her lap top. She stated that her lap top had a built in camera on it that she never used and how one day when she stepped away from her lap top for a short while she returned to find a picture of herself on the screen that was taken while working on her lap top.  Her computer had been locked and a message read that she had downloaded sensitive materials and that her computer has been seized until she contacted the government agency at the number provided. As it turned out it was a hacker who froze her computer and demanded a  payment of $250.00 to release her computer.  She contacted the manufacturer of her computer and they were able to unfreeze her computer for a small charge after which she immediately taped over the camera lens on her computer. 

What concerned her the most about this episode was the thought that if a hacker could do this then imagine what our government could do.

The Lord’s return is upon us my friend she said with a smile of relief and I pray that you and your loved ones are ready.  I said that we were and wished the same upon her and her family.  She replied that they were and yet grieved for all those who have been so deceived by a society that has turned their backs on God for those earthly pleasures that will soon be gone.  With that she rose up, turned and bid me farewell.  

There was so much more to this conversation that I would have filled up pages upon pages with her insights. I walked away from that conversation knowing that we are not alone in what we are all feeling these days.

531143349772576880_ZK4TpuzX_c

It is not often in this life when we cross paths with like minded individuals but for me this encounter was Heaven sent and I will remember this conversation until that Glorious day when Jesus returns  in all of His Glory.

Shroud of Turin not a Forgery: Using Digital Imagery Science gives us a look at the face of Jesus

Good-Friday-Wallpaper-23

New research suggests Shroud of Turin dates to Jesus’ era

Tests conducted on the Shroud of Turin by researchers at Italy’s University of Padua indicate that the linen sheet believed by some to be Christ‘s burial cloth dates back to Jesus’ lifetime.

The 14-foot-long cloth bearing the image of a man with wounds similar to those suffered by Christ was analyzed by university scientists using infrared light, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The research linking the shroud to between 280 B.C. and A.D. 220 was published in book by Giulio Fanti, a professor at Padua University, and journalist Saverio Gaeta.

Fanti, a Catholic, told the Telegraph that the results were based on 15 years of research on fibers taken from the cloth, which were subjected to radiation intensity tests.

Fanti told the paper he rejects the conclusion of carbon dating tests conducted in 1988 that bolstered the theory the shroud was made in the 13th or 14th century in a medieval forgery.

Those results, Fanti said, were “false” because of laboratory contamination, the Telegraph reported.

The Vatican has never confirmed the authenticity of the shroud, but a Vatican researcher in 2009 said that faint writing on the cloth proves it was used to wrap Jesus’ body after his crucifixion.

The cloth is presently housed in Turin Cathedral in northwest Italy.

Fourth Obama Humanistic Thankgiving Message Fails Yet Again to give Thanks to God

Hat tip to Breitbart.com for this report

Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.

This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:

But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….

We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.

How are we supposed to move forward together, you ask? Why, with greater government spending, of course!

As for God, here was the only mention – as a throwaway line in a hackneyed aphorism, used constantly by this president for communitarian sloganeering:

As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work – not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.

No mention of thanking God. None.

But, of course, we’re used to this. In 2011, there was no mention of God at all. In 2010, Obama was closer, but still missed the mark (“we’ll spend some time taking stock of what we’re thankful for: the God-given bounty of America, and the blessings of one another”). In 2009, Obama didn’t thank God, either.

Compare that to Obama’s Thanksgiving Day proclamations, which he does not read or speak. Those are filled with God – at least for the last three years. In his first year, filled with the vim and vigor of his original election, Obama preferred to eschew any direct thanking of God even in his proclamation.

2012: “On Thanksgiving Day, individuals from all walks of life come together to celebrate this most American tradition, grateful for the blessings of family, community, and country. Let us spend this day by lifting up those we love, mindful of the grace bestowed upon us by God and by all who have made our lives richer with their presence.”

2011: “As we gather in our communities and in our homes, around the table or near the hearth, we give thanks to each other and to God for the many kindnesses and comforts that grace our lives. Let us pause to recount the simple gifts that sustain us, and resolve to pay them forward in the year to come.”

2010: “As Americans gather for the time-honored Thanksgiving Day meal, let us rejoice in the abundance that graces our tables, in the simple gifts that mark our days, in the loved ones who enrich our lives, and in the gifts of a gracious God.”

Of course, nobody sees these proclamations, so Obama doesn’t have to be embarrassed about them.

It’s no wonder that this President’s Democratic National Committee platform tried to remove God. He’s not a big fan of the Big Guy. Even on Thanksgiving. After all, what need do you have for God when you’ve got the state?

Demon-crats Boo God as He is Re-instated into Dem Platform at Convention

With Heavy Booing, Dems Reinstate Jerusalem and God Language into DNC Platform

With heavy booing from dissenters, the Democratic National Convention voted Wednesday to reinstate language supporting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to restore a reference to God in its party platform.

DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa conducted a voice vote of the delegates on the proposed platform changes, asking for yeses and nos three times because of how similar the responses sounded. A two-thirds vote was required to adopt the change. Despite clear opposition, Villaraigosa declared the amendment had passed, prompting loud booing.

The changes reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential” and of Jerusalem, “it is and will remain the capital of Israel.”

According to the Associated Press, President Barack Obama personally intervened to get the platform changed back.

Democrats had been sharply criticized for not including the language, including by fellow party members. Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan said on Fox News that removing the Jerusalem language was “a tragedy” that served to “undermine our nation’s support for Israel.“ Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said omitting God ”suggests a party that is increasingly out of touch with the mainstream of the American people.”

The Jerusalem issue came after the Obama administration’s refusal to say flat-out whether the city is the Jewish state’s capital, then saying it could be through negotiations.

“Mitt Romney has consistently stated his belief that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in a statement after Wednesday’s vote. “President Obama has repeatedly refused to say the same himself. Now is the time for President Obama to state in unequivocal terms whether or not he believes Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.”

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said reinstating the platform language reflected “the policy of both Republican and Democratic administrations for decades.”

Noor Ul-Hasan, a Muslim delegate from Salt Lake City, Utah, told the Associated Press she felt the language went against the principle of the separation of church and state.

“There are people who don’t believe in God and you have to respect that as well,” Ul-Hasan said. She also questioned the process by which the platform was amended. “There was no discussion. We didn’t even see it coming. We were blindsided by it.”

Angela Urrea, a delegate from Roy, Utah, was similarly dismayed there was no discussion of amending the platform after it was approved Tuesday.

“The majority spoke last night,” Urrae said, noting the platform was approved Tuesday. “We shouldn’t be declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Convention floor erupts as Dems restore references to God, Jerusalem in platform

The floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted Wednesday over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to “God” and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them. 

Democrats, though, were hardly in agreement over the reversal. 

A large and loud group of delegates shouted “no” as convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, called for the vote late Wednesday afternoon. Villaraigosa had to call for the vote three times before ruling that the “ayes” had it. Many in the crowd booed after he determined the language would be restored. 

The battle marked the biggest platform fight so far in either party’s convention, and signaled Democrats were worried the prior language could have been politically damaging in a tight election year. 

A senior campaign official told Fox News that President Obama personally intervened to change the language in both cases. On the “God” reference, the official said the president’s response was “why did it change in the first place?”

Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., told Fox News that he pushed to restore the Jerusalem language.

“I wanted a change (back). I talked to several people close to the president,” Levin said, without saying whether he spoke to the president. “The ’08 platform stated (the policy) correctly … that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.”

In the section referencing “God,” the change effectively restored language that had been in the 2008 platform. It now says: “We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.” 

The initial 2012 platform language said this: “We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth — the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.” 

The change came after both Mitt Romney and GOP running mate Paul Ryan criticized the omission. In an interview with Fox News, Romney said the omission signaled the “party is veering further and further away into an extreme wing that Americans don’t recognize.” 

“(That) this party purposely removed God from their platform suggests a party that is increasingly out of touch with the mainstream of the American people,” Romney said. “I see it as being as out of touch and detached.” 

Democrats also restored a section on Israel that had previously been left out.  The language on Jerusalem now states “it is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.” 

The switch on Jerusalem puts it in line with what advisers said was the president’s personal view, if not the policy of his administration. The administration has long said determining Jerusalem’s status was an issue that should be decided by Israelis and Palestinians in peace talks, but has been careful not to state that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. 

The White House wouldn’t say whether the change in the Democratic platform language reflected a change in administration policy. 

Republicans argued that not taking a position on Jerusalem’s status in the party platform showed the president was weak in his support of Israel. 

“They now say they are not certain what the capital of Israel may be. I think that’s another example of Israel being thrown under the bus by the president,” Romney told Fox News, before the platform revision. 

Democrats, when the revision came to a vote, were clearly divided Wednesday over whether to bow to pressure and make the changes.

Some delegates claimed after the vote that the platform change didn’t actually win the two-thirds majority necessary to pass – though it was only gauged by a voice vote.

“The majority of the delegation here at the Democratic National Convention supported the previous language and instead after three attempts to vote and it failed twice, and for whatever reason it still failed but was still pushed through,” said Rashida Tlaib, of the Michigan delegation.

Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, head of the platform committee, downplayed the turnaround. “I wouldn’t call it an error,” he told Fox News. “It was a clarification.” 

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement that the changes were made “to maintain consistency with the personal views expressed by the President and in the Democratic Party platform in 2008.” 

“Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths,” she said. 

She noted administrations of both parties have said the status of Jerusalem should be negotiated by the Israelis and Palestinians. 

The floor fight erupted as the speaking program was getting under way on the convention’s second day. Former President Bill Clinton was set to speak Wednesday night, for the formal nomination of Obama. 

Romney, meanwhile, kept up the pressure on Democrats from out of state. In the interview with Fox News, he claimed Democrats at the convention were ignoring the question he posed at the Republican convention last week in Tampa – are Americans better off today than they were four years ago? Romney claimed they weren’t. On weekend interviews, Obama surrogates hesitated on the question before eventually claiming the country was better off, though the question has not factored prominently inside the convention arena. 

“No one in the convention so far has had the temerity to say that people are better off in America because they realize that’s not the case,” Romney said. “The convention so far is a celebration of failure.” 

Fox News’ Carl Cameron, Ed Henry and Chad Pergram and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
