China’s hazardous Smog Solution 2017

By T. James.

I love China and America, and as great countries that impact all the world, and climates, you would certainly think they could solve this pollution problem among many others that effect millions of their own children and grandchildren, their future! So I humbly offer my Smog Solution 2017 free of charge out of my desire to see them blessed. If anyone choose to use this idea, this letter serves as my Global Copyright on the World Wide Net, that I am the first to propose this concept and they can compensate me accordingly.

Giant Building Sized Air Fans that Pulls the Air through Water to Filter

Imagine at least four or more Towers, North, South, East and West (Bei, Nan, Dong, Xi is Chinese) around a huge city like Beijing, like the ones you see in a room on a table next to a cigarette ashtray. The fan pulls the smoke into the unit, and in the bottom of the unit is a tray of water that traps the dirt of the smog.

Many years ago, I used to sell Rainbow vacuum cleaners, and they would not only clean your carpet, but they cleaned the air as well, pulling all the dirt into a bowl of water in the base. Fragrance could be added to the water to make the room smell fresh and clean as well! Therefore, each one of the Towers would also have a waste water treatment plant attached to it to “clean the Smog Collection Waste Water” and add a nice fresh fragrance like the night flowers I remember walking paste in my China courtyard at night. Many Chinese construction companies pride themselves in being able to construct and build apartment buildings in a few weeks! Certainly these Air Filter Towers can be built and operational in a month! Why? Its taking concepts that already exist and are proven to work, and then copying them into a more massive scale, something China already does well, they just need my

…Innovation and Insight!

In the past, (1998) I labored to go through all the “official” bureaucracy many times, with great ideas and discovered a few things. It doesn’t work. God must allow you to have an Audience with the Emperor instead! Or Mr. Trump!

One of my first jobs was working for Project TAMPEEL, (Trumbull Co. Multi-Purpose Environmental Education Laboratory) teaching 5th grade students in a Ohio Tri-County School Program, Environmental Education! It was so important, why don’t schools offer it today? China should! It was so practical. After lunchtime, we would tell the students to bring ALL the leftovers of lunch to our “Land Fill” graveyard, and we would bury all the organic waste like apple cores, and banana peels and mark it with a class gravestone, then we would bury all the non-organic matter in another pile and mark it. Since the same class comes twice a year, in 6 months we would dig up both piles to see what happened. The kids would then see “Compost” often for the first time, since they grew up in urban settings and not in the countryside. They would also see that the things in the “landfill” might still be there 100 years from now! They would yell, “That’s My candy bar wrapper!” and would begin to see the problem didn’t just “go away”. Then we taught them to separate your trash at home, one bin in the kitchen for organic (Has a lid that steps open & closed) an one for paper/plastic, also a bin for glass and another for cans. I did this in China and also now in the USA again. Few others do…so sad. I am so thankful for people like my Dad, Gordon D. James, and Norm Downing who pioneered and wrote these curriculum. Maybe some of the student are I hope. Here are a few other Solutions I have helped pioneer and explore everyone can do.

Clean ALL the Water in China for under 100USD!

Yes, I am serious. I remember growing up in Ohio, and we went to Geneva on the Lake (Erie) every year as a family to go swimming. One year we arrived, and the beach had signs all over it, “Swimming Forbidden: Mercury Poison TOXIC! DANGER” and dead fish covered the shoreline and smelled TERRIBLE. Who are the evil people who ruined my day at the beach? Who ruined the BEACH? Killed the fish, and who is trying to ultimately kill ME?

This is Environmental Genocide. Its a crime against humanity. So I wept and prayed, “God, please help us, have mercy on us…and God answered my prayer (and others I am sure), and cleaned not only Lake Erie, but all the Great Lakes AND tributaries, like the Mississippi River!

How? The Zebra Mussel. Hated by the Hydrologist and loved by everyone else. Why? God sent these small shelled clam like “mussels” on the bottom of boats from Europe through the St Lawrence Seaway as a secret gift to the USA! Because of them, now all the water in the Great Lakes are completely filtered every week, since one Zebra Mussel filters one liter of water everyday! The book, “The Late Great DEAD Lakes” is a wonderful book about this transformation. Also see Zebra Mussels: http://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/greatlakes/glnetwork/exotics.html . The water went from all the fish dying, and rivers catching on fire, to scuba diving becoming a growing sport since people can now see in the water! Walleye, crappie, and perch are now returning and can even be safely eaten!

Thank God.

Why do Hydrologists hate them? They clog up pipes and water equipment, so they try to stop or limit the spread of the Mussel, but once they get started cleaning, they are unstoppable! They filter the DDT out of the water, mercury, etc, trap it in the shell, then fall to the bottom and die, trapping the waste in a concrete like grave.

I wrote a Water Proposal Paper “How to Clean ALL the Water & Lakes (DianShi) of China for under 100USD” and submitted it to the Provincial Government in 1998, and they sent an official to discuss it with me. It discussed both the pro and con of such a venture and they told me “only the President could sign off on such a project” and that was the last I heard about it. They asked, “Would it be dangerous if people ate them”? I told them if it had DDT inside, I wouldn’t recommend it., and that they world create many new jobs cleaning pipes, and they would have very clean water cheap! I tried.

A few years later, I tried to help a friend who is a Hydrologist in Colorado with a bid on cleaning another Lake that had entirely been poisoned with cyanide from a factory. We and other companies proposed different approaches, ours was a more organic one with water plants acting as the natural sponge filter. They gave the Contract to some large firm with expensive to build in China pumps so everyone could get their share of billions of RMB, and then I began seeing the plants were recommended in canals, lakes and waterways all around the city and province! Thanks a lot! This is how China does business. They told me, “We just need to be careful not to feed these plants to our pigs!” Yes, another reason I don’t eat pork!

Roof Top CHINA ORGANIC URBAN GARDEN Project

Most roofs on the cities of China are flat, wasted space. They have solar panels and tubes to heat water, and water tanks, and little else. So I experimented with my own Roof Top Garden. Our family lived on the 7th floor (no elevator which was great exercise AND improves the memory since you don’t want to forget anything), and had access and permission to use the eight floor roof.

My neighbor had a few plants and chickens already up there so, I went the next logical step. First I put down plastic and stapled it to a wooden edge border three feet out from the wall. Then I got a large bin with a lid to keep the flies out to be my Compost bin, and added good rich compost regularly. Next I got a large water tank and added a cone rainwater catchment cone ring around the top. (Free Rain Water), yet ran a hose from the kitchen as a backup plan.

It was a great ORGANIC GARDEN. My kind neighbor also gave me his chicken manure! I gave him my extra tomatoes, potatoes, cucumber, squash, lettuce, spinach, beans, green and red peppers, mint, parsley, rosemary, pumpkins, and many other good things. I would tell my wife, “Honey, I am going to the upstairs market, will be back in 10 minutes!” It was fun, and I now have a Organic Garden in the USA behind my home, but I just added a plastic winter solar GREENHOUSE for my winter garden and early spring starts for 20usd. (plastic & furring strips of lumber), also shelf s I fished out of the local dumpster. I moved my Kale plants into it before it snowed, and left a few in the snow to see which did the best!

We had two other ORGANIC FARMS in China in which we grew food for our Cafe and experimented with Moringa, (the Most Vitamin Packed Plant in the Earth) so every family on earth could have their own GNC store free in their own backyard and also a very fast growing variety of Willow Tree. I liked both of these plants because all you needed to do was break a limb off, stick it in the ground, and it would root and create another tree! Wa-la! In fact, I have turned my Yard into a Garden so I can mow it in less than 30 minutes per week, (perhaps 20 minutes this year?) and the squash give me beautiful big yellow & orange flowers all summer!

Proposals: 2017. Turning USA Housing Project Lawns into MODEL COMMUNITY ORGANIC GARDENS.

Last week, I sat down with a friend and told her about my ideas to turn every yard in the projects into peoples own gardens, and that this could fund youth teams as the garden aids, it will half the food costs to people on a budget, and the extra could open a weekly ORGANIC MARKET to sell the extra to the outside community, even Kroger! What saves more time and money? Grow your OWN local food and sell some or pay extra to bring it in from Mexico or farther?

Teams can be trained to visit every home, to do a Energy Assessment, to chalk, tape plastic on windows, and do KUB like money saving weatherproof, for a recommended donation. New solar panels and special water heater heat as needed units cut utilities in half, IF people want to make the needed changes.

Between 1959 and 1961, over 80 million people starved to death quietly and disappeared in China and the world didn’t know it till years later (see the book HUNGRY GHOSTS), so today the older people all have gardens in their courtyards, and villages, they painfully remember. This is called FOOD GENOCIDE…and what would you eat if the stores stopped bringing food to stock it? If you had no gas to get it? Many villages ate each other, and then bark on trees, and then the dirt, and then… they died. While each village had food and was even selling it overseas for a profit!

When you have Gardens, you can also raise and eat and supply our new cafe with chickens, rabbits, geese, also you can plant fruit trees, and raise bees that are seriously needed for America to recover its agricultural self sufficient, and generous organic and healthy heritage.

Too busy? Too much work? We are not immune to crisis therefore, let’s turn all our communities into MODELS for the FUTURE, our children and grandchildren deserve better.

Geno-Cura..”Race-Healing”

A New Word for a New Christmas Season of Healing.

After the Holocaust, the now famous Jewish Dr. Raphael Lemkin, needed to create a new dictionary word “Geno-cide” i.e. race-killing, in order to correctly describe a concept beyond any evil “mass murder” and horror known to man.

In counterbalance and for the same reasons, we feel the great need to create a word to describe a concept beyond most Good or “mass blessing” of people. “Geno-Cura., i.e. Race-Healing.

The great difference is that a great unspeakable evil had taken place with no word to explain it, so this word, Geno-cide was made after the fact. The opposite is true for the most part in our new term, yet it needs to be researched far more historically, that Geno-cura, is being made in faith that it will happen even more, in a global out break kind of Holy way, now and in the future.

We can think of the past and present millions of people, Jewish Holocaust by the Nazi, Armenians by Turkish Talaat, Ukranians by Stalin’s Holodomor, Chinese (50 million by Mao) see Hungry Ghosts, Cambodians by Pol Pot, and the American Indians by the immigration of Europeans and many more, see “Samantha Power’s, A Problem from Hell.” yet can we think now in terms of how have any of these people found “Race-Healing”?

In the Bible, Revelation 22.2, it says that the “Tree of Life was for the Healing of the Nations!”

I remember working in Child Protective Services, in the State of Arizona, as a Human Service Specialist III caseworker, and sometimes I would team together on cases with the Tribal Social Services on the Navajo Reservation. Our cases were terrible in the under-funded State of Arizona were even the clients knew “bus therapy” was in their best interest. This is when the best thing you can do sometimes is to purchase the family a bus ticket, and send them to a State who cares, has more funds, and can truly help them! Otherwise, the people suffer from “Social Geno-cide”, which means the entire culture emotional ignores them and they die. Merry, busy Christmas!

Many large beautiful churches in which they have invested grand amounts of money, many high paid positions too, also in the Social Services, new fleets of cars, computers, yet very little real help., so the people socially starve and die. Welcome Home….welcome to America, welcome to Social Geno-cide. It’s a Global problem, not to just pick on America. It is just more shameful to behold since more resources exist here to make a difference than in many other places.

Today is December 13, 2016, and here is a Social Genocide Quiz. As you drive about Shopping for the next 10 days, make a list of all the people you meet or even see. Here is an example:

1. Knoxville TN. Middle Age man behind Sonic pushing his backpack in a baby stroller today.

2. Knoxville, TN. Drove past Karm bridge, stopped and counted 52 homeless people…etc.

Now. Look for the Social Contradictions: The most visible place is a Liquor Store next to all 52 people, and who makes the profits from this? First, the Government gets TAX MONEY and the Liquor Store gets the sale of the cigarette and other addictive agents. Its social Rat poison and the Government lobbies protect, care feed these “gas chambers” of slow death.

The Social Services are secondary profit sources, barely funded to deal with the problem, so they become the “Concentration Death Camps” of the American Social Care System. Feeding them as they pay TAX money to the Government to slowly eat the “rat poison”, i.e. drugs, alcohol, prescription medications. The Media makes tons of Money making sure people are brainwashed to think that they can only “feel better” or have a fun or better life if they drink, drug and have fun forgetting they exist for any other purpose than to provide the funds to grease the rat poison wheels.

The Prison System of America then has become the next secondary profit Care source, the “Concentration Death Camps Hospital”. In many ways, it’s safer to stay in a Prison than to be on the street with no hope of survival. A few effective CHRISTIAN programs have begun, such as “True Purpose” yet people must be willing to be TOTALLY ISOLATED from our TOXIC society long enough to be “de-programmed” from all the legal, tax funded toxic brainwashing allowed in our culture.

Lemkin lobbied for legal changed in the International Laws on behalf of Genocide Prevention, and while they still happen globally, they are much more difficult to hide and in order for America to have any significant grassroots Social changes, they need to have a ground swell Moral Voices that will not stop , that will NEVER BE QUIET.

People need to say openly…Ban Social Genocide! Ban the Booze and Brainwash!

Ban the Social Genocide! Ban the Drugs, and Brainwash!

HEAL AMERICA NOW…VOTE DRY & SMOKE FREE!

If America called a vote next week, I believe the RED States would all vote DRY/SMOKE FREE and even some of the BLUE STATES! Then all the Blue States left, need to have border patrol guards to keep them from exporting their toxic stuff to the others.

New laws severely restricting the amount of alcohol in any drink, and severe curbs to any media profit, especially as it relates to Sports and Television. New laws need to restrict the sale to other nations.

When I was young, Liquor could not be purchased in our city because it was a DRY CITY and we had far less problems, so all the Cities in America should become DRY CITIES, also SMOKE FREE CITIES.

EVERYONE KNOWS we would save billions of US dollars in Healthcare alone, and pay off the National Debt to China in 5 years, just on the benefits of GENO-CURA, i.e., Race-Healing of the American culture! Now ask yourself, what is the ROOT of some of America’s greatest problems? Perhaps, if that man or woman didn’t get drunk, then had immoral sex, and found out they were pregnant, then they wouldn’t be going for an abortion next?

I am PRO-ADOPTION, and anti-abortion. Planned Parenthood is just a modern-day Genocide death camp to “dispose of unwanted fetus” a secondary problem related to the ROOT problems of the American Social Genocide, to the tune of 61 million unborn babies or more documented and killed! Samantha Power, do you even mention it in your book, “A Problem from Hell? America and the Age of Genocide?” Why not?

Finally, today is December 13, 2016, and this article needs to look at the
CURRENT pending Genocide of the hour! Syria. Now that Trump is coming into
office, Russia made its Move to strike with the Assad forces East Aleppo
now, why? They are afraid to deal with a wild card like Trump, but they
know that Obama, the UN, the UK and Kerry will just not want to “rock the
boat” as they make a transition into the history books of obscurity.
Samantha Power, will you exit your position tonight by a pity party, or
will you with all your conscience before God, demand that the UN send an
immediate “rescue force” to stay the coming genocide, and to rescue the
hundreds of innocents trapped under the buildings? The selfless “White
Hat” rescue workers all say they expect to be murdered, do you believe
them? I do, unless you act NOW. OBAMA, KERRY, UK, UN, Samantha POWERS,by
God’s HELP and MERCY, use your ALL Heart Soul Mind and Strength to Rescue
East Aleppo tonight! Leave office with a Great Brave Legacy! all America
will be proud again to applaud!

May God grant our Nations His GENO_CURA before its too late.

An Open Letter to His Honorable Bhumibol Adulyadej

Dear King of Thailand. ภูมิพลอดุลยเดช; Rama IX, the ninth monarch of the Chakri Dynasty. I thank God for your example to the world of a leader who is truly loved by his people, and honored and respected by all the leaders of the world. I have been a guest in your country many times with my family and have many Thai friends. The Thai people I know are some of the most kind people on earth. I pray for you and your country often, especially lately with the recent attacks upon your nation, for these event breaks my heart and I know yours as well.
The reason I am writing this letter is to bring you a story of Thai courage and good news, because often people say, “How can these terrible things be stopped, and how can we protect our friends and families from such senseless evil?” Therefore, I want to relate to you the true story of my dear Thai sister, “Jip”, one who truly honored the King.

jantanaJantana (Jip) also her friends called her “Karen” What was so special about her life? She actively reached out to the Hui Muslims of China and Thailand in true love and concern. Though she was a Christian, she had many families and even entire Hui Muslim and Ho (Thai Hui) villages that she was welcome in! She was a Christian ambassador of the Prince of Peace, Jesus to give the leaders their very first Bibles. Mariko relays: “ Jip was the first living & breathing true Christian servant of God that I knew of. She was such a clumsy person and she was nothing near perfect. However, her life was a real miracle for me because from her life, I have learnt that God doesn’t care about perfection. He only cares about the heart because He is Love.
Jip kept going to China with only one reason and that was love. She really loved Jesus that much and she had this love in her life always. It was the love that all could feel, no matter where, when, or who they were. And because of this love, when she had any problems, people near and far were ready to help her. She had this sincerity and simplicity that I have not seen in any other Christians. She always won people’s heart, not with her wit or knowledge, but with humility and constant love. If I have to explain about God to you, I will show you her life story. That will be the shortest and clearest explanation.
I will not forget this sister and all the good things she has done for me. I hope to see her again in the place she called “heaven”.

Yesterday morning, August 23, 2016, I knew I needed to write this Blog article because I had a dream, “It was a long dream but in the last part, a Thai lady came up to me with a bucket of water, and for a minute, I thought it was Jip but it wasn’t and I began to cry, but she looked at me and I could tell she was a comforting angel and set the bucket down for me to be used as a Water Splashing Blessing” in writing this article to the King of Thailand.”
Testimony from Bill

….
Her conversion was unusual, just like Jip. Mary and I were alone at our storefront building one afternoon in Korat. The Thai team had gone to a village to witness. One of the Technical Colleges let out and the students were walking by. Mary and I were sitting on a stone bench at the front of the church so we could see everyone that passed by in case someone wanted to talk. A little college student in her college uniform rushed into the building (like a little chick that we found out was her name) and began to talk a mile a minute. She said: “I want to know how to be a Christian and I only have ten minutes.” Mary and I shared with her, she quickly said she believed, and we prayed with her. A Thai Chinese young woman who was a new convert came in and we had her also talk with Jip in case our Thai didn’t get through to Jip. Jip turned around to rush out and I insisted that I walk home with her. In fact, I wanted to see where she lived because I was not sure we would ever see her again. The speed with which she said she believed was certainly not the norm in Thailand.
So, I walked home with her across the street and through an orchard area. As soon as the Thai Christians returned I showed them where Jip lived and they contacted her. She showed up for worship on Sunday.

Mary began to disciple her along with Pongsak and others. She quickly jumped into all of the activities of the church. When Mary talked to her about baptism she was worried about what her family would say. She asked Mary in a typical Jip question: “Mary can I baptize myself in the big ong (water pot) that is in our bathroom?” When she was actually baptized we almost didn’t get her head under water. So, everyone kidded her that the top of her head was un- baptized.”Over the years, especially when she was in China, we talked by Skype almost every week. She continued the same type of relationship ministry that she had learned. She would send me her newsletter in Thai so I could help her translate it into English. I have always been amazed at how God used Jip. God placed in her great optimism that with His help she could do anything: finish Seminary, speak English, learn Chinese, teach English & Thai in a university, and on and on. God has used this “Little Chick” to astound the wise (1 Cor. 1:27-29).

When I found out she had colon cancer I began to talk with her about the incredible resurrection relationship that we Christians have with God. Many people talk about being resurrected after we die. However, Jip and I talked about living out the resurrection BEFORE we die. Several times we discussed Philippians 3:10: Knowing HIM, the power of HIS resurrection, the fellowship of HIS suffering, being conformed to HIS death. We talked about the importance of knowing His resurrection, suffering, death . . . not our resurrection, suffering, death. I believe Jip experienced this incredible resurrection relationship with Christ during her last days as she trusted Him. I believe God surrounded Jip with His resurrection even as she walked through the valley of the shadow of death.

Bill
Testimony from Don and Lynn
Dear Mariko, friends and family, of Jip,
We have felt it to be such a privilege to be a friend of Jip’s. “Uncle Don and Auntie Lynn” – as she called us! She certainly was a warrior for Jesus – she never gave up and continued strong in her
race right to the end! Prayer was the mainstay of her life. She would always ask us – “What can I pray for you today?” In the last 2 years, no matter what the ache, pain or problem that was happening,
her next words would be, “Auntie Lynn, would you pray for me?”

Joy and love was what her life was about. Jip loved life, the life that God had given her!  She continually gave that life away –  each day that she lived. She loved people and each person alive was a friend that she just hadn’t met yet- a friend that needed to meet Jesus. Jip was a giver – not only giving out God’s love, and His joy and peace, but she gave of her material possessions to all she knew and met. Many times she gave away – not thinking of her own needs.   She did this right up until recently. As sick as Jip was, she was still thinking of other’s needs and caring for others. Jip trusted Jesus in everything! She was such an example to all who knew her – not letting any day go by without sharing with each person.  She “walked with Jesus” every moment of the day, living each day as if it were her last.

We are so thankful for Jip and we pray that we take that example of the life she lived
to be God’s powerful instruments, as Jip was, for the King. “Well done, good and faithful servant” will be what Jip is hearing from her Savior.  We shall miss Jip but we know that we shall be with her one day in Heaven!
Love and blessings,
Don and Lynn

Dear Mariko and her other friends and family,
I count it such an honor to have known Jip (Karen), after I had heard she
had passed away, I was at a church service and in my heart had a vision of
her leaping, and singing and shouting with the energy and joy only Jip
could generate! 5

She was one of the few people in the world and even fewer Thai people who
> realized that only the love of Jesus can change this world for the better.
> She shared the love of Jesus with everyone, and especially those who have

ผมรู้สึกเป็นเกียรติมากที่ได้รู้จักจิ๊บ  หรือ Karen หลังจากที่ทราบข่าวว่าเธอจากเราไปแล้ว ผมได้ร่วมนมัสการอยู่ที่โบสถ์ และในใจของผมปรากฏภาพของจิ๊บ กำลังกระโดดโลดเต้น ร้องเพลงและโห่ร้องด้วยความสุข มีรอยยิ้มสดใสฉายชัดในแบบที่ทุกคนคุ้นเคย
เธอคือหนึ่งในคนไม่กี่คนบนโลกใบนี้ และเป็นคนไทยไม่กี่คนที่รู้ว่ามีแต่ความรักของพระเยซูเท่านั้นที่จะเปลี่ยนแปลงโลกให้ดีขึ้นได้ จิ๊บได้นำความรักของพระเยซูไปยังทุกผู้ทุกคนที่เธอรู้จัก โดยเฉพาะคนที่ชอบสร้างกำแพงใจ ไม่ยอมเปิดใจให้ใครเข้าถึง อย่างเช่น เพื่อนๆ และเพื่อนบ้านชาวมุสลิมของเธอ ในโลกที่จิ๊บทำงานอยู่ เป็นโลกที่ต่างจากที่นี่มาก มีระเบิดและความรุนแรงไม่เว้นวัน จิ๊บไม่เคยหยุดรักคนเหล่านั้น ไม่ยอมปล่อยความศรัทธาที่มีต่อพระเยซูในใจของเธอให้เหือดแห้งไปเพียงเพราะมีอันตรายอยู่ตรงหน้า
มีผู้เชื่อหลายคนต้องออกจากพื้นที่เพราะความกลัว แต่ไม่ใช่จิ๊บ เพราะเธอได้รับเลือกโดยพระเจ้าให้ทำภารกิจที่ท้าทาย งานนี้เป็นภารกิจแห่งความรัก และเธอก็ทุ่มเทให้ภารกิจนี้แบบสุดตัวจวบจนวาระสุดท้าย ดังนั้น เธอจึงเป็นบุคคลที่คู่ควรกับมงกุฏแห่งชีวิตที่พระเยซูทรงสัญญาไว้ และเธอจะได้พบกับความชื่นชมยินดีนิรันดร์ในสวรรค์ ผมขอบคุณพระเจ้าที่ได้ส่งเธอมา และขอบคุณที่พระเจ้าทรงจัดเตรียมเพื่อนๆ มาคอยช่วยเหลือเธอมากมายตลอดการเดินทางบนถนนสายนี้ ผมและเบลล์หวังว่าจะได้พบกับจิ๊บอีกในสวรรค์
รักจิ๊บมาก

 

Tim & Belle,

Finally, I share these few stories to encourage you that she found the way to bring real Peace to your country, it was in the Love of Jesus. Before she died, she had been trying to help my wife, Belle to set up a special concert in Thailand along with Joan and Allan Eubank of Chiang Mai. We would still like to do this in honor of Jip and in Honor of you, and to bring honor to God by allowing Him to pour out a special blessing on your country.

Thank you and may God pour our Great Peace and Blessing on Thailand,

Warmest Regards,

Timothy

The Global & Middle East Clarity Quiz:      

March 2015:   Multiple choice/ Choose one answer.

Israel’s Netanyahu recently said Iran was a greater threat than even the Islamic State? The typical non Middle Eastern person might wonder, why this is such a problem and how can it find a solution?  The answer comes by first finding clarity in defining the core issues. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme leader of Iran recently fell ill during the special Jewish Feast of Purim. Coincidence? Only God knows, yet it is a feast the Jewish people have celebrated for centuries that highlights the victory over imminent genocide via the exposure and judgment upon a avowed enemy of Israel and those related to the blessing and curses pronounced via Abraham and His Seed. (See Genesis 12:1f and Galatians 4.1f).  No one wants to speak on the News about this rumor?

Islamic State and many Muslims are more familiar with these verses, yet it’s the non Muslim world that seems to be unfocused in its clarity on these matters, so this quiz is for you.

A friend shared this with me as the reason why so many Muslims are becoming Christians worldwide, even at the risk of their own lives. Also why so many Muslims want to quiet, threaten and gag any person from looking at this before they decide to marry a Muslim if they are not one yet.  You need not be a scholar to look up the answers yourself online.

 This short quiz seems to help cut through all the political articles and positioning. In 2015, we are living in a growing season of Global Christian Genocide in every nation of the world related to Islam, (just look at the news). So take this short quiz and see how you do!

 The good news is that “the blood of the martyrs for Jesus is the seed of the (future) church in each Nation, and we are told as Christians to________ and ________ in all our persecutions.” Luke 6:23   a. Cry and Weep  b. Worry and Fret   c. Rejoice and Leap for JOY

Continue to love Muslims into the Kingdom of God in deed and truth.

Continue to pray for our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters to be a good testimony in the midst of any trial.

Pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem.

Answers:  

  1.    Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe that Jews and Christians are the “worst of creatures”.  Prior verses related to positive concepts about Christians have been abrogated by later Quranic statements. .
  1. Answer is C.   Many Muslims believe they are evolved as the “best of peoples” and that all other people in the world are the worst, or at least ignorant.
  1. Answer is C. Many Muslims believe that Fighting is prescribed for them by God as a holy duty, whether they like it or not.
  1. Answer is C. Many Muslims believe they are to fight and slay unbelievers in every stratagem of war. This includes deceit and lying, making and breaking truces and treaties both personal and national.
  1. Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe “giving alms” includes giving money to fight and kill in the name of Jihad (spiritual or otherwise)..  This seems why economic sanctions seem to be a practical idea to many.
  1. Answer is A. Many Muslims believe it is a duty of obeying God to cut off a thief’s hand, and depending on the country the amount is very small, and it doesn’t matter the reason behind the theft (ex. mother stealing bread to feed child). Thousands or Muslims/non Muslims are permanent cripples in Islamic countries due to this Sharia law..
  1. Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe it is duty in obeying God to flog a person guilty of adultery or fornication with 100 stripes. Therefore, many people are flogged in Muslim countries every day, and many are beheaded in Saudi Arabia and many other countries..
  1. Answer is B.  Many Muslims believe it is a duty of God to execute both Muslims who have decided Islam is a false religion, and also Christians who have tried to teach them about Jesus. Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and many other countries allow no freedom of religion in this matter. Every year thousands of Muslim risk all to convert to follow Jesus and many Christians die daily in Muslim countries. Muslims have gained both political and financial power in Great Britain, the United States (Dow Jones Stock index to the tune of 12 Trillion Dollars), and many other countries. They seek to impose through this financial pressure their Shari’ Law system upon all Peoples. Violent backlash to these laws wrongly increase tensions, yet provide no clear solutions. It is only as the Muslim world  and others boldly continue to speak out against issues of sexual molestation and child abuse in the Islamic context as a culture in transition, can change continue to quicken.

9.  Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe “castingTerror” is a Judgment of God on all UnBelievers and that they have a duty from God to bring this into fulfillment.

  1. Answer is B. Many Muslims believe that God sent down Jinn, Occult demonic forces upon Muhammad to “strengthen him” in His battles.
  2. Answer is A.  Many Muslims believe the Jinn/demons have become Muslims and that God has no wife or a son. Many Muslims are wrongly taught that Christians believe God had sex with Mary and physically begat a son. Throughout history, Christians have instead believed in the miraculous virgin birth of Jesus. Therefore, it isn’t strange to see the Muslim Jinn speaking this?  Misconceptions of what Christians believe has been a historical problem yet many are speaking with Christians like never before.
  1.   Answer is B.  Many Muslims believe “true love” is defined as obeying Muhammad and that this brings their only forgiveness of sins. Ironically, the greatest “sin” i.e. following Jesus, is the greatest unforgivable sin of Islam. This is the Clash of Civilizations in the extreme.
  1.   Answer is C. Many Muslims believe they can never have a Christian or a Jewish person for a friend or protector, even if they really needed one!  Many Muslims believe they can ONLY have other radical Muslims as friends ever.
  1.   Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe it was a noble thing that a 52 year old man could have a marriage relationship with a child of 6-8 years old. Muhammad’s first marriage also broke the normal Arabic customs of the day since he had married a rich woman who was 10 years older than him.  Child brides marriages are practiced in many countries as a religious norm many Muslims quietly hold in disgust.
  1.   Answer is A.  Aisha was 6-8 years old. a child bride to an elderly Muhammad who married his best friends daughter. This child could have easily been cared for by his people, yet he decided to marry her as well as his adopted son’s (Zaid) wife whom he encouraged to Zaid to divorce so he might add along with 9 to 14 other wives.
  1.   Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe that all other peoples are UnBelievers destined for Hell unless they submit to Islam.
  1.   Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe all Jews are cursed by God.
  1. Answer is C.  Many Muslims believe all Jews are the worst of creation. Therefore, wrongly justifying their genocide with nuclear weapons based on the teaching of their religion.
  1. Answer is C.   Many Muslims believe Jews deserve wrath and humiliation.  Even if Israel would decide tomorrow to give all the countries land over to the Palestinians, apologize for any and all errors real or perceived, many Muslims would use these verses as the reason to make them live a life of humiliation and annihilation .
  1. Answer is C.   Many Muslims believe Jews are immoral irredeemable people, no matter how much good they have done, Nobel prizes they have won, or wonderful contributions to humanity they have made. . Israel is under no delusions, while much of the Media and West are sadly self-deluded.

Pray for the thousands of families, Muslims, Jewish, Christian and the countless innocent caught in between the chaos, the daily Persecuted by many ignorant, misguided, radical Muslims and Media throughout the world. Pray God will open both the blind eyes of the naive West, and the blind eyes of the Muslims in every nation to the love and mercy of Jesus whose Way is the clear solution to the dilemma of Nuclear Genocide of all Humanity.  Send this to your Congressman, Senator and leaders asking them to seek God’s Mercy and Change before its too late. God is the God of Miracles, and He can do the “impossible” , nothing is too hard for Him.

Messiah’s Star 2015

Messiah’s Star & Blood Moon April 3, 33 AD.
Revelation 22:2 & Eschatology Signs.
Jan. 2015 By TJ
5 Steps Bringing Reconciled Healing to the Nations.
“In the midst of the street and on either side of the river (the clear as crystal river of life proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb/Jesus), was the Tree of Life which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the Healing of the Nations.” Rev.22.2
Step One: See Star of Bethlehem/Blood Moon Cross Sign/Global Internet Awareness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPHKg0M3mEo

What is the ultimate Goal of God for mankind? I think it’s important to read the “End of the Book” i.e., the Bible, in order to see it well. In order for something to need “healing” it needs to be in a state of “wounds and trauma”. Now consider the condition of all the current Nations of the world, and do you find them in a “healthy state”? , sadly, No. Yet God’s desire for them is to be Healed.
Who can bring this healing of the Nations to pass? Only God and obedience to God brings healing. Money and wealth alone cannot bring healing to the world, because without the true wisdom and integrity to manage the resources correctly, great wounds of imbalance exist. Today, over 50 nations in the world declare themselves to be Islamic to one degree or another, yet in its context does it bring true peace or healing? Far from it. The first followers of their Prophet killed each other in power struggles and do so even as I write. Many feel they need to create chaos in order to bring a state of history in which a Madhi “savior” would come to change history. Yet, they are ignorant of the true Prophet and only Savior which God has already sent into the world for them, Jesus.
If you disagree, I ask you to first watch the “Star of Bethlehem” You Tube.
Ask yourself this question, “Where have you found such a number of significant Signs about any other One, but Jesus, the Messiah?” In the Quran it says that only God…can do ten specific things, YET, Jesus does all Ten! The Quran says God is the only Healer, “And when I am ill, it is He who cures me.” (Surah 26.80).
Muhammad said in the Hadith, “Oh, Allah, there is no healing but Yours.” The Quran says of Jesus(Isa) “I heal those born blind and the lepers” (Surah 3.49). 1
The Dead Sea Scrolls contain the ancient original Taurat (Old Testament) Book of the Prophet Isaiah which spoke of Jesus (Isa) the Messiah over 400 years before his miracle birth by a virgin, saying, “But he (Jesus) was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are HEALED,: (Isaiah 53.5). Even today, Jesus heals us.
“When evening came, many who were demon possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick, This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah, “He took up our infirmaries, and carried our diseases.” (Matthew 8:16,17). Even today, Jesus casts demons from our lives.
Jesus healed to show the Sign of these great truths, namely that Jesus could forgive sins like God by whoever would believe and follow him (Matthew 9:4-8) bringing Inner Healing of the spirit, soul and body of both mankind and Nations. Jesus healed to show also that he alone was the Eternal Word of God made flesh once in all history, and that his death and sacrifice on the cross, and his glorified resurrection from the dead, (the first never to die again since many had been resurrected before him yet died again), gave multiple proofs that Jesus was God manifest in the flesh for the purpose of redeeming and healing you and all mankind and the Nations of this world today. If they receive Him.
Jesus in Matthew 12:15-18, healed to show that he was the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecies because true instant healings were his miracles and confirmed his declarations. Isaiah 42:1-7 is quoted in both the Hadith Bukhari and Quran , regarding (Al-Azb 33:45), yet it is only Jesus who clearly fulfills it and brings miracles to attest as a second Sign witness, something no other prophet could do..
In Matt.12:22, people saw Jesus heal the blind and dumb demonic and asked openly, “Can this be the Son of David?” The Messiah? Yes, he was and is still today! If you are reading this, Jesus wants to heal you as well, do you want it? If you are the Leader in any of the Nations of the world reading this, God wishes to heal your Nation, its people and solve its problems long term. But you must decide to take the next Step.
Step Two: Read the only True Word of God, the Bible:
In Step One, God seeks to knit His General Revelation of His Creation as the Creator, together with His Specific Revelation knowledge of His Word in prophecy, to show He exists, and that He is seeking Lost mankind regardless of if they are seeking Him. In this way, so all men are without excuse! 2
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20.
“All day long I have stretched out my hand to a disobedient and contrary people.” Isaiah 65.2.
God is seeking and speaking to us, but are we listening? Sadly, in our sinful, brokenness, not very well sometimes. God sent His servants, the prophets to speak to the people, calling them back to God. By the inspiration of God’s Spirit, he had them write His directions and Word in Specific Revelation of His mind and nature, confirming all through Prophetic Fulfillment, Signs and Wonders.
This Specific Revelation is found only in the Bible. Are you willing to read it? Go to www.Bible.is and you will find the Word of God in more than 1,270 languages. It is in both written language and dramatized audio version. The Jesus Film can also be seen via this link in 1,500 different languages with more translations being added to each sight daily. Why? God doesn’t want YOU to have any excuse like “No one tried to tell me!” or “It was not available to me!” No, it is God who send His people into the darkness to share the Light of His Word and Love. If you call on Him, God is faithful and will send someone to you if you have not heard. Or He will take you and send YOU to them to hear somehow! God desires one billion Muslims worldwide to hear the truth. God desires one billion Hindu and Buddhists to hear the truth about Jesus being their only hope of eternal peace and salvation. Have you heard?
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Romans 10:17.
Some begin with reading Proverbs, the Wisdom teachings of Solomon. Others begin with Genesis. I suggest that you read the Gospel of John and Luke first, then the Book of Acts. If you hear or read God’s Word, you will be challenged to make choices based upon whether you believe it is true or not. True belief leads to Actions of Choice and this is called godly “Repentance”.
The Holy Spirit of the Living God will guide you if you ask Him to help, and this is called “prayer”. Read the Bible first. As a new seeking believer, I remember going into university libraries asking God to help me find the best books to help me sort through my questions. He led me to books I had never heard about before, like St.Augustine’s , The City of God, and Dietrich Bonheoffer’s “Cost of Discipleship” and “Christ, the Center”. He has led Muslim friends to read “Christ, Muhammad and I” by Al Ghazoli and “The Quran, the Bible and Science” by Dr. William Campbell & Dr. Mazakis via Amazon.com. See www.answering-islam.org 3
Step Three: Godly Leadership Repentance.
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promises, as some count slackness, but is long suffering (extremely patient), not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3.9.
God promises to “shake the heavens and earth” to “shake ALL Nations” to Wake Them Up from their apathy, saying: “For thus says the Lord of hosts, “I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and the dry land, and I will shake ALL Nations and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with Glory” says the Lord of hosts.” Haggai 2:6,7. Has He shaken your world recently?
God may come shake your world in many different way, but He wants your attention. He may shake you intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, or even physically. Are you awake to His Presence? If you are a leader, how are you leading people in truth?
God continues to “shake the Nations” calling them to repentance and BLESSING them especially if they do! See what is happening to our world? STRANGE Weather Signs!

Watch this video. http://youtu.be/XDue6yQBab8

In the Book of Acts 2:37-39, the men who heard, saw the signs and believed what they heard and saw, asked the question, “What shall we do?” Peter, one of the disciples of Jesus said via the Holy Spirit,

“Repent, and let everyone of you be immersed in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, for the promise is to you and your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

God had promised that He would set up an Eternal Kingdom saying by the prophet Daniel, “”And in the days of these kings, (specifically the Roman Empire in the time of Jesus) the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall NEVER be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to other people (no abrogation by Islam, Bahai, Momons, or any others), it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms (spiritually and politically) and it shall stand forever! :. Daniel 2:44,45.

“Then to Him (Jesus) was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that ALL Peoples, Nations and languages should serve Him, His dominion is an Everlasting Dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.” Daniel 7:14.

As a National leader, have you put your Nation under the authority of Jesus publically?
4

Peter made his statement in obedience to the “Great Commission”, in which Jesus after His resurrection commanded his disciples saying,

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth (in fulfillment of Daniel), GO, therefore, and make disciples of all the Nations (ethnie)linguistic groups on the earth), immersing them in the name of the(God the) Father, and of the Son (Eternal Word of God, Jesus), and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20.

In Mark 1:15, it says, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand, Repent and believe the Gospel! (Good News).”

Who is the authority and King of your life? Yourself? Your spouse, your people? Your cultural idols that consume your days, weeks and years? Or have you given your heart to Jesus and his Good News of forgiveness, hope, grace, mercy and salvation?

“All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Come unto Me, all you who are labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and lowly (Humble) in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11: 27-30.

In every generation, people seek to impose their heavy burdens on others to create their own man-made kingdoms of violence, terror, deceit, manipulation and ungodly pressure. The eternal kingdom of Jesus Christ is one of “righteousness, and peace and joy” in the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. Romans 14.17.

Are you ready to give your burdens of sin, regret, hopelessness, despair, to Jesus? He will forgive you and promises to make you and your Nation a “new person”, being born again through the spiritual energy and life changing power of God that can even raise the dead! If you give your life full heartedly to Him, he promises to never leave you and to always guide and help you as long as you continue to follow him, no matter what happens. God can protect the progress of your country so it doesn’t digress. Only God can establish and bless it with sustainability and improvement.

The church is not a man created institution, but is simply where “if two or three are gathered together in the name and purposes of Jesus and His kingdom,, Jesus says, “I am in their midst! And they in His Presence!” How beautiful in grace and precious, how inclusively united in true love and purpose, the Eternal Kingdom of Christ Jesus in God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. See 2 Corinthians 13.14.

5
Step Four: Global Public Proclamation. Trust, Love and Obey!

Have you publically dedicated your country, your state, your province, your city, your home, your family, your marriage, your life, your everything, to God? Have you publically blessed God with thanks, and your people for agreeing to stand with you?

In I Kings 8:22-9:7 you find the example of a Prayer of Dedication/ Blessing for a Nation. Read this over and create your own version of repentance for your Nation. Then read it publically, print it, distribute it, post it on the Web, the news services. It calls on God to remember His promises, to forgive, to bless, so that they also may forgive and be a blessing.

How often have I seen national news “jabs” between nations but have seen so little asking of another nation to forgive for atrocities done by both sides. One nation saying to another, we are so deeply sorry for what we have done to you in the past, will you forgive us? Can we be reconciled and move forward? The Marshall Plan was a clear Christian act of public reconciliation after WWII towards Japan and Germany.

The hearts of both must be mutually in the right place for it to bring a true national blessing. Today I heard the story of a movie called “UnBroken” about a US solider tortured by the Japanese, and how years later how he sought out his torturers to forgive them in Japan. I have heard how the church in Japan has posted a public declaration of repentance and remorse to the nation of China on behalf of all the terrible things that happened like the NanJing massacre, asking China to forgive their nation.

Anglo Americans are asking the Native Americans to forgive them for the terrible things which happened like the Trail of Tears. It is clear today that public acts of reconciliation and healing need to happen more between the Anglo and African American communities, between the Spanish Americans and Anglos as an example of many others. American needs in 2015 of “Healing the Nations within the Nation”.

In China, true public acts of reconciliation need to happen between the Uyghurs and the Han, the Han and the Tibetans, healing balm applied to deep wounds and pain. In Africa, and in every nation, the more we can seek true healing among peoples, the more God will bless the future. Jewish followers of Jesus in Israel, Muslims who have become Christians, even Palestinian Muslims who gave their hearts to Jesus in tears of reconciliation for their nations. Will you do more? If you do, God promises His rest.

“Blessed be the Lord who has given rest to His people Israel according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses” I Kings 8:56. What result happens? “”that all the peoples of the earth may know the Lord is God, there is no other.” I Kings 8:60.

Step 5: National Celebration, Praise and Thanksgiving:

“At that time Solomon held a feast, and all Israel with him, a Great Assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt, before the Lord our God, seven days and seven more days—fourteen days!

On the eighth day, he sent the people away, and they blessed the king, and went to their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the good the Lord has done for His servant David and for Israel His people.” I Kings 8:66.

True reconciliation leads to true joy in a person’s spirit and in the spirit of a Nation. Forgiveness brings true rest and healing. The joy of thankful hearts spring into praise and songs of worship to God.

This brings “heaven down to earth” like Jesus taught us to pray, “on earth as it is in heaven”. This is a picture of what heaven is truly like,

“After these things I looked and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.” Rev.7:9

The March for Jesus in the early 1990’s moved around the Globe in Praise in many Nations. It profoundly affected the earth and God’s heart. Promise Keepers had a immense affect raising men into understanding fatherhood and leadership of their family. We need to call forth and declare more

“Healing of All Nations” Global Repentance and Reconciliation Gatherings in 2015!

We are praying that God will bring this Great Assembly forth in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2015 to the glory of God and in every city in the entire world at the same time in 2016.

Blood Moon 2014 Sign from God?

‘Blood moon’ and Signs from God:
2014 total lunar eclipse on Tuesday, April 15, are you ready for this “Passover“?

On Tuesday, April 15,2014, there will be a total lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a coppery red, NASA says. It’s called a blood moon, and it’s one of four total eclipses that will take place in North America within the next year and a half.

God is calling the Leaders of the Nations to a Global Repentance before Him as King of the Universe. God desires the killing of the innocent children to cease, God desires the “Healing of the Nations” to begin, see Revelations 22.2 in the Bible.
First read Exodus 12., the story of the Passover/, since this is a very special Passover, one in which God is calling the earth to TURN TO HIM for salvation in Jesus Christ. God has fulfilled prophecy in the past in order to again point us to the fact that He desire all people to be saved and to come to a saving knowledge of God.
Since such a “Sign” hasn’t happened for 300 years, shouldn’t we stop our “busy” lives and ask the question, “Could God really be trying to get the whole world’s ATTENTION?”

“Joel 2:30,31…And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall turn into darkness and the MOON INTO BLOOD before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 1

In the New Testament, Peter quoted this prophecy of Joel, that God was pouring out His Spirit on all flesh (all Nations/just not His Jewish peoples), see Acts 2.16-47.

There will be a total lunar eclipse Tuesday that will turn the moon copper red
Such moons are commonly called “blood moons”
There will be four of them within a year and a half and many in the 21st century
There was a period of 300 years when there was not a single one
.
In other words, get ready for a Sign from God, a moon not to just grace the night skies next week for the curious, but one with serious meaning. There will be a total lunar eclipse Tuesday that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange, NASA says.
It’s called a blood moon, and this one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total eclipses. Is this a Day of the Lord Sign?

What is the Day of the Lord? Isaiah 13: speaks about how God uses seasons to cry out to the world to “Turn to Him” the Creator of all Life, and to turn away from the sinful lifestyles that they chose to follow rather than Him. Like in Noah’s day, the world had become seriously wicked, so God “passed over” the land in Judgment and only Noah and the eight people in his family and the animals on the Ark, were saved.

Just to remind us of this, the ancient Chinese character for “Flood” is still written “eight people in a boat”, and its still written this way even today, not nine or five, but exactly, eight, just like the ancient story. 2

Could God be getting ready to send a New Judgment on the entire Earth? You must decide this…After the Exodus Passover, came the death of the Firstborn of those who had not turned to God, yet the firstborn of those who had turned to God (even their firstborn animals) were saved.

Prior to the Passover Sign, God used “Climate Changes” in the past in order to get the attention of people, especially LEADERS, (like Pharoah). I don’t know about you, but have you noticed that the world has been getting an extra dose of bizarre weather?

Like a Divine Exclamation Mark, within a year and a half, North America will be able to see a blood moon a total of four times. The moon takes on this color during the eclipse as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, which is the color of a desert sunset. God is speaking to NORTH AMERICA.
The four blood moons will occur in roughly six-month intervals on the following dates: April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015.

“Behold the Day of the Lord comes, Cruel with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and He will destroy its sinner from it.” Isaiah 13.9- In the time of judgment, the blood moon signs have passed, and now it just mentions that the “Moon will not give its light”…Matthew 24.29.

God gathers the “tares” into the barn for Judgment first, the “nominal Christians”, those who give lip service to God, yet in their hearts are too busy for the things of God, like love or mercy. Not just the outward, “religious things” but the real “heart searching things” of forgiving others, and seeking reconciliation and forgiveness from others, humble prayer and crying for mercy before God.

In the book Jonah, the wicked people of Ninevah believed God was going to judge them within 40 days, (in this case a year and a half?), and they proclaimed a fast, put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least, and then word came to the King of Ninevah, and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe and sat in ashes, and he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Ninevah by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying,

:Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything: do not let them eat or drink water, But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth and cry mightily to God , yes let everyone turn from the evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. Who can tell if God will turn and relent and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish.” Jonah 3.5-10. 3

It says, “God saw their works that they turned from their evil way, and God relented from the DISASTER that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” Why? In Jonah 4:11, God’s lesson and desire was to have PITY on Ninevah, and likewise today, to have PITY on the international melting pot of North America.

Oh, God, even now we cry out, “Have Mercy, have pity on North America, Lord!” Bring forth Your Global Revival, Your Global Repentance, soften the hard hearts, turn the cold hearted to YOU, Oh God. Turn the Leaders hearts to repent of the massive Abortions of children, the immoral. yet legal sacrifice of the innocent in their pursuit of pleasure and wealth. They desire Smart Phones over Wisdom from God! They spend more time petting and speaking to it than to You, Oh Lord. Oh have Mercy…our Nation has become economically enslaved to debt because of this greed in their hearts and massive homes and luxury while the rest of the world still is starving and lives in ignorance, our Leaders act free but they are in slavery to selfishness, You Oh God are the only one who can set Your people in every Nation free, Yes, free from sin. Oh Jesus, we call on Your Holy Name for salvation, Oh save us! Forgive us, have Mercy upon us….

Jesus spoke about the Day of the Lord prior to AD 70, (see Luke 21.25) that the Signs would happen to “His generation” vs. 32, and the Nation of his generation was destroyed by the Roman army as read in Josephus’ History of the Jews. The Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, all the outward obedience to God, in outward show of sacrifice ended even till now and has never been restored. Why?

Jesus, one time in all history, became the Lamb of the Passover, His blood shed to cover you and I if we accept this “Sign of the Blood” over the doors of our hearts. “to cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God.” see Hebrews 9.11-14 in the Bible.

“The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA,” longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak said in a prepared statement.
In the 21st century, there will be many tetrads, but look back a few centuries, and you’ll find the opposite phenomenon, Espenak said.
Before the dawn of the 20th century, there was a 300-year period when there were none, he said. Zero.
That would mean that neither Sir Isaac Newton, Mozart, Queen Anne, George Washington, Napoleon, Abraham Lincoln nor their contemporaries ever had a chance to see one.
To take advantage of it, you’ll have to stay up late from Monday night into Tuesday.
People in North and South America will be able to see the entire eclipse, while sky watchers in the western Pacific can catch only the last half. The moon will be setting in most of Europe and Africa during the eclipse, so residents there probably won’t see much. Why?
God is calling us to do more than just “gaze” rather He wants us to be AMAZED, to seek His face, to rent our hearts and beg as watchmen on the walls for our Nations.

NASA has set up a live web chat to answer questions about the eclipse starting at 1 a.m. Eastern Time.
On Tuesday’s lunar review around 2 a.m. ET, when the moon starts to slide into Earth’s shadow, it should turn into a blood moon — a coppery red — about an hour later and stay that way for over an hour, NASA says.
Tuesday’s blood moon comes right on time for the Jewish festival of Passover, which commemorates the ancient Israelites’ exodus from slavery in Egypt. According to the Bible, God cast 10 plagues upon the Egyptians, the final plague being the death of the firstborn. The Israelites painted lamb’s blood on their doorways so that this plague would pass over their homes. Is this a coincidence?

If you wish to contact me by email, write to [email protected] I will be checking it only weekly since my current sight has 25,000 hits to sort through…somehow. Let us all seek God in prayer, in fasting, in repentance…and may God have mercy on us.

Afghanistan’s Most Brilliant Mind/Apostle of the Nation

Afghanistan’s Most Brilliant Mind and “Apostle” of the Nation.
April 9th, 2014
(Spiritual “New Birth”day Blog)
This is a true story as told by J. Christy Wilson, Jr. He and his precious wife Betty, loved the Afghan people so much that in 1951, they left the comforts of America and spent the next 22 years daily working and modeling the love of Jesus as Christians in a place often hostile to any faith than Islam. Many real “Christ followers” have died willingly as martyr’s of real love, a love that laid don their lives, even to help those who are enemies. J. Christy’s book, “More to be Desired than Gold” is endorsed by Billy Graham, Ivan Chow, and Dr. Ralph Winter, yet today, it was endorsed on my heart after a friend contacted me, and I heard about the book, “Fahim speaks” by Fahim Fazil, and this story came to mind, and I began to weep and say in my heart, “Has any of the people of Afghanistan heard this story? Would anyone ever dare to make a movie about such a precious man?”
Have the leaders of Afghanistan heard? Perhaps, the new President once he is elected? I have not written any blog since before I went to Asia on a long trip and now that I am back, I know I must write and send this now. More and more the Afghan people need to know the truth about the Quran and the Bible, and as the world of isolation and ignorance is exposed to the Light of true seekers, great changes are coming on the whole earth to bring great glory to God! J. Chrisy and Betty prayed for God to raise up a modern Apostle Paul from their people. Little did they dream the Lord would answer in the person of a young blind Afghan boy. Our prayer is that God is today raising up His new Apostles in every Islamic Nation and beyond, and may God use this blog and future movies to bring Him great honor because of their love and deep passion for God and for His truth. Here is the story of one Afghan who “Followed his dream, never gave up, and made it happen to honor God the most”.
He Counted the Cost for Christ
“During 1964, a youngster whom we will call Paul enrolled in the NOOR Institute for the Blind in Kabul when he was fourteen years of age. Paul and his sister were both born with infantile glaucoma. At birth he could see, but was blind when he was a boy of five. His blindness had come from a religious custom formerly practiced in Afghanistan which often led to first cousins marrying.
1

Because women were heavily veiled, a couple were not allowed to see each other until after the wedding ceremony had been performed. Then a mirror would be placed before them and the bride’s veil would be lifted and they would see each other for the first time.
Many did not want to take the chance. Instead they married first cousins, since they had seen each other in their homes because their mothers and fathers were brothers and sisters. But this often resulted in mental and physical handicaps.
Even with this handicap, Paul was probably the most brilliant person I have ever met. At fourteen, he had already memorized the whole Koran in its original language. It would be like an English speaker learning the complete New Testament by heart in Greek, since Arabic was not Paul’s mother tongue. He completed the six primary grades of the Institute for the blind in three years.
While taking his classes in Braille, Paul also mastered English. He did this by listening and repeating what he heard on broadcasts over a transistor radio. With the help of a small ear plug, he would tune in programs in English coming into Afghanistan from other countries. He then started asking questions about what he had heard, such as, “What do you mean by substitutionary atonement?” He had heard such theological concepts on Christian radio broadcasts like the Voice of the Gospel coming from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.
Finally, he shared with Betty that he had received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior through listening to these programs. She asked him if he realized he could be killed for this, since the Islamic law of apostasy dictates death for anyone leaving that religion. He answered, “I have counted the cost and I am willing to die for Christ, since He already died on the cross for me.”
Paul then became the spiritual leader of the Afghan Christians. In the Institute for the Blind in Kabul, the students elected him as the president of their association. But the next year, after it became known that he had become a Christian, he lost the election for that position.
2

Betty told him how sorry she was that he had lost. He replied by quoting what John the Baptist said of Jesus, “He must increase, and I must decrease.” (John 3.30). His goal in life was not to seek prominence for himself but to be a humble servant of the Lord.
Paul’s father said that before he had entered the Institute for the Blind, he had been like a cold piece of unlit charcoal. But after his experience there, he had become like a red hot burning ember!
Once he came to see me and asked to borrow an English Braille copy of the Gospel of John. He opened it and read it with his fingers. Then he returned it and said his question had been answered. I asked him what his question was. He replied that in John 13.34, Jesus said, “A new commandment I give you that you love one another.” He had wondered why the Lord had called it “new” since the commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself” had already been given by God to Moses over a millennium before, as recorded in the Old Testament book of Leviticus 19.18. But now he understood.
I asked him to tell me. He explained that until the time of Christ’s incarnation, the world had never before actually seen love personified. He went on to state that the Bible reveals that God is love, and that Jesus as God (Kalimatu’allah, the Eternal Word of God born by the Holy Spirit of a virgin miracle, tj) in human flesh was Love Incarnate. This was what made the commandment new, Jesus said, “A new commandment I give you that you love one another as I have loved you.” In His perfect life, Jesus has not only given us a new model of love to follow, but He also indwells us by His Holy Spirit and therefore He bears the fruit of love through us!”
Paul was the first blind person to attend regular public schools in Afghanistan along with the sighted students. There he had a small tape recorder on which he took down everything his teachers said, so he could listen to the lessons again and again and master them thoroughly. In this way he became the number one student out of hundreds at his grade level. 3
Those who failed in their classes were given a second chance to take examinations at the end of the three-month vacation. Paul studied the next year’s courses during the break and then passed the tests with the students who had failed. In this way he went through high school in record time, finishing two grades each year.
At Christmas in Kabul, we used to have an outdoor pageant under the lights in the garden of the house church where we lived. This included a live donkey, cows, sheep and hybrid Bactrian camels. As hundreds of Afghans came to see the story of Christmas for the first time, Paul narrated it over the public address system in their Dari language.
He also would come to see me in order to study Calvin’s Institutes, since he wanted to grasp the Biblical concepts of the great Reformation leader.
Paul fell in love with an Afghan girl who was legally blind and was studying in the Institute. After a courtship, they decided they wanted to get married. As far as we know, this was the first Christian wedding between two Afghan Muslim converts ever held in that nation.
He told me that he also wanted to study Islamic Law so that he could defend Christians who might be persecuted for their faith. He therefore entered the University of Kabul, from which he successfully graduated with his law degree.
The Christoffel Mission to the Blind in Germany gave the Institute in Afghanistan an extensive library of Braille books in German. Since Paul wanted to read these, along with the other classes, he went to the Goethe Institute in Kaul and learned German. As the top student there too, he won a scholarship to go to Germany to study advanced German. When the representatives found out that he was blind, they said they would need to give the scholarship to the second student since they did not have accommodations for a person who could not see. He asked them what he would have to do? They said he would have to travel alone and take care of himself. He said that he would do that.
4

Therefore, they finally accepted him. While studying with top students from Goethe Institutes from around the world, he was number one in their advanced course as well.
He also travelled to Saudi Arabia, where he entered a memory contest on the Koran and won first place! The Saudi Muslim judges were so chagrined that a non-Arab speaker had won, that they tried to save face by awarding two gold medals, one to the best Arab, and the other to the best…non-Arab.
Paul, with a talented Finnish woman missionary also translated the New Testament from Iranian Persian into Dari. This was published by the Pakistan Bible Society in Lahore. Its third edition—by Cambridge University Press, England, 1989—is distributed worldwide.
At that time, an Iranian pastor, a Muslim convert, came to Afghanistan to reach the blind. He encouraged Paul greatly. One evening while the tow men were praying in the pastor’s home, the cat ate some of their food, went into convulsions and died. Someone had poisoned their food. Yet on this occasion, God protected them. As David Livingstone said, “In Christ’s work, we are immortal until God’s time comes for us to die.”
Because numerous blind students like Paul had become Christians, in March 1973, the Muslim government in Afghanistan closed down the two Institutes for the Blind, the one in Kabul, with more than a hundred pupils, and the other in Heart, with more than forty.
Betty and J. Christy were ordered out of the country in three days, after we had served there for twenty-two years. All expatriate teachers of the blind, along with their families, were forced to leave Afghanistan within one week.
5

The destruction of the church building in Kabul.
The Muslim government then destroyed the Christian Church building in Kabul, after they had previously given permission to build it.
An oft quoted Afghan proverb is, “When Satan fell to earth, he fell in Kabul.”
This church building came to pass as a precious act of God through the hands of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. (My most beloved and favorite President even till today, tj). Many don’t realize that former General Dwight . Eisenhower was baptized after he became President. His godly mother had named him Dwight after Dwight L. Moody, the great evangelist whome she highly respected. But he had never been baptized nor joined a church. When he got to the White House, he requested baptism and joined the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC, on confession of his faith. This was pastured by Dr. Edward Elson, whom the President knew while the former was a chaplain in the US Army.
A mosque had been built in Washington for Muslim diplomats, and President Eisenhower had been invited to the opening. J. Christy wrote to Dr. Elson, and asked to forward a message to the President, “Since a mosque has been built for the Muslim diplomats in Washington, we should have a church built here in Kabul for the Christian diplomats.” President Eisenhower agreed and when he was in Kabul he asked the King’s permission to build a church. Finally, the Afghan Government gave the authorization and the church was built with loving donations from all over the world in 1970. The beautiful Afghan alabaster cornerstone engraving said,
“To the glory of God, “Who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood,” this building is dedicated as a “house of prayer for all nations,” In the reign of His Majesty Zahir Shah, May 17, 1970AD, Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief Cornerstone.”
6

Three years later, the building was demolished. Even as I write, has it ever been rebuilt? Was any compensation ever paid? Was this act such a great affront to God and to His honor, that it has brought a curse on its nation? If the leaders of Afghanistan even today would repent and make things right, would God rush to heal and restore this nation and its people as a miracle to behold for all history to witness? It is up to them to see. God’s last cry was for the “healing of the nations”, Revelation 22.2. Shouldn’t it be ours as well?
Anyhow, when the Muslim troops arrived and started knocking down the wall between the street and the Church property prior to destroying it, a German Christian businessman, Hans Mohr—who purchased most of the semi-precious lapis lazuli stone minded each year in Afghanistan—went to the mayor of Kabul to see if he could get him to recind the order that was given. The mayor had been educated in Germany. Mr. Mohr said “If your Government touches that House of God, God will overthrow your Government.” This proved to be a prophetic word. The mayor then sent a letter to the congregation ordering them to give over the Church for destruction. That way the Government would not have to pay compensation. The congregation replied that they could not give the church to anyone, since it did not belong to them. It had been dedicated to God. (Just like our Farm in China that was knocked down..tj). They also added that if the Government took it and destroyed it, the officials would be answerable to God! (Did-o, regarding the farm…tj). Soldiers, police, workmen, and bulldozers were then sent to destroy the Church. The congregation, instead prayed and many wrote letters to Afghan Embassies in various countries. Billy Graham and other Christian leaders signed a statement of concern and sent it to King Zahir Shah.
The Afghan Government received a secret police report that there was an “underground church” in Afghanistan. Since they did not understand this term, they dug twelve feet below the foundation looking for the underground church!
On July 17, 1973, the Muslims completely destroyed the Church building and finished digging the foundation. Then…that very night, the Afghanistan Government was overthrown in a coup! 7
Afghans, who are quick to see omens in events, say that Jesus Christ ca,e down from heaven and overthrew the Government because it had overthrown His Church. It had been a monarchy for 227 years, That night it became a Republic under President Daoud. Then in 1978 the Republic was toppled by a Communist coup, followed by the Russian invasion just after Christmas in 1979. Millions of Afghans had to flee their country as refugees, One of them said, “Ever since our Government destroyed the Christian Church, God has been judging our country.”
Now, back to Paul. Under the Communists, the Institute for the Blind in Kabul was reopened and Paul was put in charge. He did a fine job in reorganizing it. He took his Master’s degree in Education at the University of Kabul by producing the first system of shorthand for the Dari Braille in Afghanistan.
Since he served as President of Handicapped Education for the nation, he was an official under the Communist regime and pressure was brought on him to join the party. But he refused. One official told him that if he did not join, he might be killed. He replied that he was not afraid of that since he was ready to die. He then asked the Communist if he were prepared to die.
Finally, Paul was arrested under false charges and put in the Puli Chardhi political prison outside of Kabul where tens of thousands were executed. There was no heat in the jail to protect the prisoners from the cold weather. He had to sleep on the freezing mud floor with only his overcoat. A prisoner next to him was shaking with cold since he did not even have a jacket. Paul knew what John the Baptist (Yahya) had said, “The man who has two coats should share with him who has none.” (Luke 3.11). But he took off his only coat and gave it to his neighbor. From then on, the Lord miraculously kept him warm every night. He slept as if he had a comforter over him.
In prison, the Communists gave Paul shock treatments to try to brainwash him. The electric burns from these left scars on his head. But they could not break his spirit with the cruel psychological treatment aimed at destroying his mind. He was then offered a chance to study Russian in prison. There he mastered this language as well. The Communists finally freed him in December 1985. 8
Following his release from prison, Paul read Genesis 12.1-3, in his English Braille Bible, “The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people, and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I…will bless you…and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
(In light of this rheama Word over Paul’s life, not only should the church in Afghanistan be restored to honor God, but the leaders of the country should make a public Holiday to remember Paul, much like our Martin Luther King’s Day, in order to reverse the curse they have, to become a blessing. Tj)
He felt God was calling him to leave Afghanistan and go to Pakistan as a missionary. He therefore, got in touch with a friend who was a blind beggar. Then he dressed himself in rags, On their way out of the country, he let his friend do all the talking. They thus were able to get through the Soviet check points along the main highway from Kabul. It took them twelve days to travel the 150 miles to the Khyber Pass and then on into Pakistan.
After Paul arrived in Peshawar, he typed a beautiful letter to Betty and J.Christy saying that he had reached there safely. J. Christy answered and invited him to come to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary to study Hebrew since he was then working on a translation of the Old Testament into Dari. He said he would love to come, but that he had too much to do among the Afghans and Pakistanis.
Paul’s wife and their three daughters joined him in Pakistan, where he started schools for the blind in the refugee camps. He also learned Urdu and preached in the churches in Pakistan. Then he completed a book of the Bible stories for children in Dari.
In a prophetic word, Paul once told a Canadian Christian friend that if Gulbuddin Hikmatyar, the leader of the fanatical Muslim group called Hisbe Islami (the Party of Islam) captured him, he would be killed.
9

They were both students at the University of Kabul at the same time, Paul was studying law, and Gulbuddin was studying engineering. So they knew each other. It was probably there that Gulbuddin learned Paul was a Christian.
On March 21, 1988, Paul was kidnapped by this group and accused of being a CIA agent because he knew English, a KGB or Khad spy, because he knew Russian, and a apostate from Islam because he was a Christian.
(Pray for the many Afghan interpreters today who are promised visas to America for their service, yet have not been issued them yet. Some have strong, loving advocates, yet as America is pulling back in this season, God knows those who have heart’s like Paul, pray God’s blessing, strength and mercy be on them.)
Paul was then beaten for hours with rods. A sighted person can brace and flinch when the blow comes. But one who is blind cannot see the club coming and gets the full force, even like the torture the Lord Jesus Christ experienced when He was blindfolded and struck. (Luke 22.64).
When J. Christy heard of his capture, he went to Pakistan in the summer of 1988 to try to secure his release. In talks with officials, all their attempts to free him failed. He was apparently taken out of Pakistan and imprisoned in Afghanistan. J. Christy comforted his wife and three daughters. Four months after Paul’s capture, his wife had a beautiful boy who looks like his father. No one knows if Paul ever heard that he had a son.
Many rumors gave cause to think Paul had been martyred. Then in 1991, an Afghan friend told this story. He too had been captured for his faith and put into prison. But in the fighting between two rival factions, a rocket hit and destroyed the building he was held in. His guard ran for cover, while he walked out of the jail unharmed. This was like the miraculous deliverance in the Book of Acts, chapters 4, 12 and 16. This Afghan Christian then relayed the story he had heard of Paul’s murder for his faith in Jesus Christ.
10

Gulbuddin Hikmatyar, the leader of Hisbe Islami, asked Paul if he were a Christian, knowing he was not going to deny, he cut off Paul’s tongue with a sharp knife and ordered him shot to death. Paul’s 39 year old body is buried in an unmarked grave somewhere around Khost, one hundred miles south of Kabul, yet he reigns forever with God, in the arms of Jesus with eternal shouts of praise, and with sparkling sight Paul behold the face of the Father’s love!
Where is Gulbuddin Hikmatyar today? Perhaps, Jesus might use Paul as a “Stephen” in his death, and Gulbuddin might be the next “Saul of Tarsus”? Only God knows. Paul did not die in vain.
Every 11 minutes, a Christian will be martyred for his/her faith in Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian, are you ready? If you are a Muslim, yet deep in your heart know that Jesus is drawing you to Him, are you ready to risk it all?

9-11/ Sept. 2014. In Honor of the True Martyrs

9-11. True Martyrs Prayer Legacy
Sept.2014. “ I came across this interesting article in honor of all the innocents who have died, in honor of all the true Christian martyrs, which have no earthly Memorial (like the Holocaust Memorial) except the Lord’s Supper Jesus initiated to be “remembered both weekly, and “as oft” in honor of the countless millions…in a Age which both Ignorance and Secular Tolerance blur truth and error, right and wrong, to point to a better Way, a Straight Path, a Humble Choice of Eternal Value. To remember Jesus and that he truly understands suffering and true Victory which brings lasting Change and valuable Love to this earth….begin by praying with me..
“Abba Father, help me live well to Your Glory, and help me to die well to Your Glory!”
Let us compare the last dying words of Prophets, both true and false and then ask yourself the question, “How do I want to live the rest of my days on this earth and be remembered by others? How do I want to die, and what will they remember of my death?”
The Death of Joseph Smith, Mormon Prophet
When Peter tried to defend Jesus with the sword, Jesus told him: “Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?” (John 18:11)
It is claimed that before Joseph Smith was murdered in the Carthage jail he made this statement: “I am going like a LAMB to the slaughter;…” (Doctrine and Covenants, Section 135, verse 4)
Most Mormons believe that Joseph Smith died without putting up a struggle, but the actual truth is that he died in a gun fight. In the History of the Church the following is recorded concerning Joseph Smith’s death:
“Immediately there was a little rustling at the outer door of the jail, and a cry of surrender, and also a discharge of three or four firearms followed instantly….JOSEPH sprang to his coat for his SIX-SHOOTER, Hyrum for his single barrel,…
“When Hyrum fell, Joseph exclaimed; ‘Oh dear, brother Hyrum!’ and opening the door a few inches HE DISCHARGED HIS SIX SHOOTER IN THE STAIRWAY (as stated before), two or three barrels of which missed fire.
“Joseph, seeing there was no safety in the room, and no doubt thinking that it would save the lives of his brethren in the room if he could get out, turned calmly from the door, dropped his PISTOL on the floor, and sprang into the window when two balls pierced him from the door, and one entered his right breast from without, and he fell outward into the hands of his murderers, exclaiming, ‘O Lord, my God.'” (History of the Church, Vol. 6, pp. 617-618).
1
Joseph Smith did not die like a lamb, but rather trying to kill other people even though he was cornered by a huge mob. It was his choice to die trying to kill others…is this what a true Prophet of God would do? I must honestly say…No. What does your heart say? Ask God? He will show you the truth if you are truthfully seeking it.In the Introduction to Vol. 6 of the History of the Church, page XLI, the following is stated about Joseph Smith’s death: “When the jail in Carthage was assailed, and the mob was pouring murderous volleys into the room occupied by himself and friends, the Prophet turned from the prostrate form of his murdered brother to face death-dealing guns and bravely returned the fire of his assailants, ‘BRINGING HIS MAN DOWN EVERY TIME,’ and compelling even John Hay, who but reluctantly accords the Prophet any quality of virtue, to confess that he ‘made a handsome fight’…”
John Taylor, who became the third President of the Mormon Church, made these statements concerning the death of Joseph Smith: “Elder Cyrus H. Wheelock came in to see us, and when he was about leaving drew a small pistol, a six-shooter, from his pocket, remarking at the same time, ‘Would any of you like to have this?’ Brother JOSEPH immediately replied, ‘YES, give it to me,’ whereupon he took the pistol, and put it in his pantaloons pocket…. I was sitting at one of the front windows of the jail, when I saw a number of men, with painted faces, coming around the corner of the jail, and aiming towards the stairs…. “I shall never forget the deep feeling of sympathy and regard manifested in the countenance of Brother Joseph as he drew nigh to Hyrum, and, leaning over him, exclaimed, ‘Oh! my poor, dear brother Hyrum!’ He, however, instantly arose, and with a firm, quick step, and a determined expression of countenance, approached the door, and pulling the six-shooter left by Brother Wheelock from his pocket, opened the door slightly, and snapped the pistol six successive times; only three of the barrels, however, were discharged. I afterwards understood that two or three were WOUNDED by these discharges, TWO of whom, I am informed DIED.” (History of the Church, Vol. 7, pp. 100, 102 & 103)
From the information given above it can be seen that the death of Joseph Smith can in no way be compared to the death of Jesus. Jesus did go like a “lamb to the slaughter,” but Joseph Smith died like a raging lion. In a letter dated July 22, 1844, Sarah Scott wrote:
“I suppose you received our letter and was somewhat prepared, when you heard of the dreadful murder of Joseph and Hyrum Smith in Carthage jail….Joseph prophesied in the last Neighbor that was published before his death that they would come off victorious over them all, as sure as there was a God in Israel. Joseph also prophesied on the stand a year ago last conference that he could not be killed within five years from that time; that they could not kill him till the Temple would be completed, for that he had received an unconditional promise from the Almighty concerning his days, and he set Earth and Hell at defiance; and then said, putting his hand on his head, they never could kill this Child. But now that he is killed some of the Church say that he said: unless he gave himself up. My husband was there at the time and says there was no conditions whatever, and many others testify to the same thing….Brigham Young said if he had been here, he wouldn’t have consented to give Joseph up and he would be damned if he would give himself up to the law of the land. He would see them all in hell first; the Church [sic], and then he said he would see all Creation in Hell before he would.” (Among the Mormons, pp. 152-153) 2
Joseph Smith’s prophecy that he would prevail against his enemies is found in the Nauvoo Neighbor for June 19, 1844:
“I therefore, in behalf of the Municipal Court of Nauvoo, warn the lawless, not to be precipitate in any interference in our affairs, for as sure as there is a God in heaven, WE SHALL RIDE TRIUMPHANT OVER ALL OPPRESSION.
“JOSEPH SMITH, Mayor”
Just eight days after Joseph Smith made this “prophecy” he was murdered in the Carthage jail, and before two years had elapsed the Mormons were driven from Illinois.
Now if you are a Mormon, or have Mormon friends, or have wondered about ever being a Mormon, if it’s true or not, or if you might even had considered voting for a Mormon to ever lead this country or any other political office, please stop and ask yourself this very simple, honest, frank question.
Was this man a true”prophet” and example for all mankind from God Himself?
Circle one answer: Yes No

The Death of the Prophet Muhammad SAW of Islam
Over one billion people in the world today claim to be a follower of this man as a Prophet of God, yet very few know how he died, nor what his last dying words are said to be.
In the beginning of his preaching, he tried to woo Christians and Jewish people to join his ranks, yet most thought he was a false prophet, so in the later part of his preaching, he changed his focus from wooing to declaring they must make a clear choice, follow, be enslaved, or die. He began to kill those whom rejected him, beginning with the Jews. Therefore, it is no surprise that a Jewish woman poisoned him with a slow acting poison which took three years to end his life.
From Ibn Sa’d pages 251, 252:
….When the apostle of Allah conquered Khaibar and he had peace of mind, Zaynab Bint al-Harith the brother of Marhab, who was the spouse of Sallam Ibn Mishkam, inquired, “Which part of the goat is liked by Muhammad?” They said, “The foreleg.” Then she slaughtered one from her goats and roasted it (the meat). Then she wanted a poison which could not fail. …. The apostle of Allah took the foreleg, a piece of which he put into his mouth. Bishr took another bone and put it into his mouth. When the apostle of Allah ate one morsel of it Bishr ate his and other people also ate from it.

3
Then the apostle of Allah said, “Hold back your hands! because this foreleg; …informed me that it is poisoned. Thereupon Bishr said, “By Him who has made you great! I discovered it from the morsel I took. Nothing prevented me from emitting it out, but the idea that I did not like to make your food unrelishing. When you had eaten what was in your mouth I did not like to save my life after yours, and I also thought you would not have eaten it if there was something wrong.
Bishr did not rise form his seat but his color changed to that of “taylsan” (a green cloth)……….The apostle of Allah sent for Zaynab and said to her, “What induced you to do what you have done?” She replied, “You have done to my people what you have done. You have killed my father, my uncle and my husband, so I said to myself, “If you are a prophet, the foreleg will inform you; and others have said, “If you are a king we will get rid of you.””……
The apostle of Allah lived after this three years till in consequence of his pain he passed away. During his illness he used to say, “I did not cease to find the effect of the (poisoned) morsel, I took at Khaibar and I suffered several times (from its effect) but now I feel the hour has come of the cutting of my jugular vein.”

The Quran warns against changing any of its contents: saying:
And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say: Bring a Lecture other than this, or change it. Say (O Muhammad): It is not for me to change it of my accord. I only follow that which is inspired in me. Lo! if I disobey my Lord I fear the retribution of an awful Day. S. 10:15 Pickthall
That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger. It is not poet’s speech – little is it that ye believe! Nor diviner’s speech – little is it that ye remember! It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us, We assuredly had taken him by the right hand And then severed his life-artery, S. 69:40-46 Pickthall
Then we reviewed the reports about Abdullah ibn Sa’d Abi Sarh suggesting changes to certain formulations in the Quran and Muhammad approving his suggestions.
The punishment announced in these verses is quite specific. Having seen that Muhammad clearly violated the command against meddling with the alleged divine revelation, it is even more amazing to see the manner in which Muhammad expired.
According to Muslim tradition Muhammad died a very painful death due to the effects of poison, effects that he claimed cut at his jugular vein:
The messenger of God said during the illness from which he died – the mother of Bishr had come in to visit him – “Umm Bishr, at this very moment I feel my aorta being severed because of the food I ate with your son at Khaybar.” (The History of Al-Tabari: The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein [State University of New York (SUNY), Albany 1997] Volume VIII, p. 124)
4
In a footnote the translator of al-Tabari writes that the expression, “it severed his aorta” need not be taken literally since it can be an expression denoting extreme pain. Other sources corroborate that Muhammad ‘s painful death was due to the poison he had ingested years before his demise:
Anas reported that a Jewess came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) with poisoned mutton and he took of that what had been brought to him (Allah’s Messenger). (When the effect of this poison were felt by him) he called for her and asked her about that, whereupon she said: I had determined to kill you. Thereupon he said: Allah will never give you the power to do it. He (the narrator) said that they (the Companion’s of the Holy Prophet) said: Should we not kill her? Thereupon he said: No. He (Anas) said: I felt (the affects of this poison) on the uvula of Allah’s Messenger. (Sahih Muslim, Book 026, Number 5430)
… The apostle of Allah lived after this three years till in consequence of his pain he passed away. During his illness he used to say, “I did not cease to find the effect of the (poisoned) morsel, I took at Khaibar and I suffered several times (from its effect) but now I feel the hour has come of the cutting of my jugular vein.” (Ibn Sa’d, Kitab Al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Volume II, pp. 251-252)
4Ibn ‘Abbas replied, “That indicated the death of Allah’s Apostle which Allah informed him of.” ‘Umar said, “I do not understand of it except what you understand.” Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 713)
Compare the foregoing statements with the following Quranic citation:
We indeed created man; and We know what his soul whispers within him, and We are nearer to him than the jugular vein. When the two angels meet together, sitting one on the right, and one on the left, not a word he utters, but by him is an observer ready. And death’s agony comes in truth; that is what thou wast shunning! S. 50:16-19 Arberry
Allah warns those who disbelieve that he is nearer to them than their jugular vein, an obvious threat that he has the power to kill them, and further threatens that they would experience an agonizing death.
The fact that Islamic narrations state that Muhammad died a severe death, describing his death in language that is reminiscent of Q. 69:45-46 and 50:16-19, supports the position that he was being punished for some heinous sin.
Moreover, when we tie this in with the story of Ibn Abi Sarh it makes it difficult not to conclude that Allah was punishing his prophet for changing the Quran at the suggestions of an uninspired scribe. Not, why not.

Muhammad SAW lay in the arms of his wife Aisha, who in the later years of his life, late 50’s, he had married when she was only a child of 6 years old. He knew the end was near for him, and that his life was ebbing away, and he knew he would soon be facing the Judge of all. Do you know what his last recorded words are before he died?
“Oh God, forgive me, have Mercy upon me and contact me to the Most High Friend,” (Hadiths Shahih Buhkari 1573)
Then he lifted up his hand saying, “The Most High Friend” Then his hand laid down and he passed away. (Hadiths Shahih Bukhari 1574).
Think about his last words…Muhammad asked for forgiveness for his sins, asked God for Mercy upon himself. Why? Does this sound like a sinless Prophet? Perhaps he was remembering all his sins while looking at Aisha, and the realization that this was the end.
Who is the Most High Friend? According to the footnote of Hadiths Shahih Bukhari, this could be “Angels and Prophets” Yet, Angels are not called Most High, therefore, the Most High Friend was not an angel but who? Bukhari realized the grammar is strange if he was asking God to contact him to God, so this is why a Prophet is the more logical choice.
Which Prophet was Muhammad calling to God to be contacted to? Who among the Prophets was worthy to be addressed as the Most High Friend? In His last dying breath, he was crying out to be contacted by God to Jesus!
Only one comes close. Muhammad SAW said, “I am closer to Jesus the son of Mary in this earth and heaven” (Hadiths Shahih Bukhari 1501). Yes, the sinless Prophet, born of a virgin, “Jesus, the son of Mary is the Soverign Lord in the earth and in the heaven” (Quran 3.Aali Imraan 45).
Only one who is truly sinless needs no forgiveness, yet can intercede and give forgiveness to those seeking God. Those who follow Jesus are on the Right Course, (Quran 5 Al Ma’idah 66), only those who fear God and Obey Jesus are on the Straight Path. (Quran 43:Az Zukhruf 63).
Are you really on the Straight Path? Do you fear God and obey Jesus? He is the Ever Living Prophet, yes, more than a Prophet.
Was Muhammad a true”prophet” and example for all mankind from God?
Circle one answer: Yes No

The Death of Jesus.
In contrast to Joseph Smith and Muhammad, what were the last dying words of Jesus?
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they have done.” (Luke 23.34).
A sinner was dying on a cross next to the cross Jesus, the sinless, virgin born sacrifice for all Eternity was nailed to, and this man asked Jesus, “Lord remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today, you will be with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23.43). And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, he breathed his last.” (Luke 23.46).
A Roman centurion officer who was standing opposite Him, saw that He had cried out like this and breathed His last, said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God.” (Mark 15.39).
It was just that simple, yet so eternally profound. People are living and dying every day, yet this one sinless man, born of a virgin, Fathered by a miracle spoken Word of God, and Spirit of God, and this Eternal Word became flesh in order to come to earth and be the example of God’s extreme Love for you and I.
No gunfight, no killing others, no regrets, no begging for forgiveness, but rather, forgiving and offering grace and blessing to those who recognize Him for who He truly is…
Perhaps, you are a Mormon, a Muslim or have been following something or someone you have exalted more than God, more than Jesus? The Bible says,
“But I fear, lest somehow as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you have received a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel (good news to change your future)…which you have not accepted, you put up with it!” 2 Corinthians 11.4. Well, don’t put up with it anymore!
As I write this, I pray that everyone who reads it will have their eyes of their understanding opened, that every demonic spirit be gagged, and being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling for your life, what are the true riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints for you…(Eph.1.18), a true Jesus worth living and dying for, because He lived and died for you and now lives forever to help and intercede for us. Hebrews 7.24,25.
What words will you utter in your last breath if you can still speak? Are you ready to face eternity and stand before God? Are you ready to stand before Jesus today? Was Joseph Smith ready? Was Muhammad ready? Are you ready?

Jesus said to them, “I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life, No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (Gospel/ John 14.6).
Jesus taught them that one should “Enter by the narrow Gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the Way that leads to destruction, and there are Many who go in by it. Because narrow is the Gate, and difficult is the Way which leads to life and there are few who find it, Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothes, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.” (Gospel/Mathew 7.13).
“Nor is their salvation in any other (Joseph Smith/Muhammad, etc) for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Gospel/Acts 4.12).
Read in the Bible Acts 8.35-39, Philip the evangelist preached Jesus to an (eunuch) Ethiopian leader, and since preaching the gospel, that Jesus died, was buried and raised by God from the dead never to die again, and the man brought the question, “What hinders me from being baptized? Philip must of discussed the importance of baptism during that first encounter.(see Romans 6.) Then Philip said,
“If you believe with ALL YOUR HEART you may (be baptized for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of God’s Holy Spirit, Acts 2.28,10.48), and he answered and said,
“I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”
So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and he baptized (immersed) him. Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so the eunuch saw him no more, and he went on his way REJOICING.”
Philip didn’t drag him back to the city for a big public baptism, because this was personal. God set up this divine appointment in response to this African leaders searching heart…just like now, and are you willing to repent (decisive change, rejecting error and saying Yes to His guiding Truth) with all your heart? Then perhaps you are ready to be baptized into Christ today as well? Perhaps even all your family? (see Acts 16.30-33).
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?
Circle one answer: Yes No
If you circled No on the other two, and with all your heart, circled Yes to Jesus, are you ready to read the Bible, and obey out of love for him in everything? Then my first prayer is for you.
Abba Father, help me live well to Your Glory, and help me to die well to Your Glory!”

XiJinPeng & LiKeQiang: An Open Letter about Corruption in China

Xi Jin Ping and Li Keng Qiang, April 20th, 2013
“US Business and Families Leaves China Due to Corruption”.
An Open Letter to the New Leaders of China
Dear Honorable Sirs,
Why do I write? I am asking that you step in and stop this corruption I see in China. I have been a guest working in your wonderful country for 14 years. It’s not easy but I felt that I would like to try. What I am sharing, I hear many others saying the same thing, and they already have left. I can only give you a few examples of how the corruption works in Yunnan Province since this is the place I work in the most, yet I hear it is a problem all over the country.
My Chinese friends tell me only you can stop this problem because “Xin1 Guan1 Shang4 ren4 San1 Bu3 Huo3” “New Leaders Can Carry Three Torches!” i.e. the new position gives you an opportunity to bring change you might not be able to do later in your service.
This corruption hurts my Chinese friends as well as foreigners. One Chinese businessman in Kunming is an old friend, and he opened a school to help poor children and families who were minorities that had migrated to the city. He had a legal contract for the land, invested millions of RMB, hired teachers. He grew up a poor minority child himself, he wanted to give back from the blessing he had come to know. The government came in and said “we are building high rise buildings here, you must move, and they gave him 5% compensation. He lost millions. The minority schooling stopped for the children. The teachers were heart broken and two of them jumped from the top of buildings killing themselves because they were so upset, they no longer wanted to live in China. One was a new mother with a baby boy she left for her husband to raise. I remember my friend weeping on my shoulder asking “why would the government people be so heartless to its own people, so greedy over land, and treating its people like dirt.”
One foreign business friend purchased a farm on Western Hills outside of Kunming and set up a “Eco-Tourist” business for Enviro- Education. Many Chinese children classrooms daily came to learn about “caring for our country” and then the government came and said, “We are breaking our contract, you must move.” 1

He lost ALL his investment of millions of RMB, sold his business and decided to move back to Singapore with his family. Again, the land has come before the people in China, the new “landlords” have become the government with dreams of reselling this property.
A Korean friend suffered the same fate. He had purchased a farm in order to grow organic food, the government took his money and his land and gave him nothing in return. His son is married to a minority Chinese girl and he has a grandchild nearby in Kunming, yet the government leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of everyone. When we seek help from the government, from attorney’s they say, “Nothing you can do, this is just the way China is, it cannot be changed, it will always be corrupted unless a miracle happens!”
Dear Leaders, it is no benefit to be rich in a corrupt China, wealthy in a polluted, degraded environment. If people have money, they will only want to send their children overseas, and then join them never to return to China.
Attached is a copy of the letter to the government of Yuxi and ChengJiang in Yunnan Province. They informed me they were breaking their contract, our workers would need to move and lose their jobs, and why? They want to break down our “Enviromental Protection Farm” and build a beach for a local 5 star resort. This resort is empty most of the time, losing millions of RMB, why?
As beautiful as they might want to make China appeal to the foreigners or local Chinese to come spend their money, who wants to come and be cheated? Already, they have brought water polluting motor boats to this lake they are suppose to be protecting. We had our minority craftman learn to build sail boats, but for what purpose now?
The foreign expert English teachers all tell me “The Chinese leaders are breaking their contracts all over China, offering us less money and more work, so why do we want to even stay and help?”
In the meetings with the government leaders, I told them I was going to write a letter to Bei Jing and they just laughed and went ahead to do as they please. Today, I heard they were proceeding to break our contract and knock the house down. They asked me to write a letter to them which I did, and they have written none back in return though I have asked them for a reply often.
So now I am writing to you asking that you do something to help stop this corruption, if you can. Real change can come from the heart with hope, yet no hope for a great future in China can be found unless something deeper happens, locally and globally among those who wish to build friendship with China.
ChengJiang Lake House 20 Year Contract between The Government of China and Timothy James.
March 8th, 2013 “The Blessed Lake Environmental Protection Farm of FuXian Lake.”

Dear Government Gentlemen, (Add Names of the Contract)
My attorney friend assures me our land contract is clear and binding for 20 years. I am so thankful to be able to be at this Lakehouse and my desire is that you leave the building intact, as well as any temporary improvements. All this is more than 50 mi from the Lake according to the document you showed me before. I ask that you please add the beach sand to the other 50 mi of land in front of our land which will place us well over the 100 mi distance from the lake waters edge. Please add extra since the lake is receding very quickly due to the serious drought.
I like the improvements you are making to the Lake in order to bring tourists to this area, yet I am very concerned about its impact on the quality of the water. I see others who have motorboats on the lake while we have simple sail boats that keep the lake “green”. Special designed composting toilets will help with the increased tourism so please let me know if I can help with models.
In spite of our contract agreement, you before offered zero compensation, yet now you ask “how much do I want”? As I said before, I hope you will honor our agreement and leave our place with a nice new beach in front as suggested. If this was you in my position, wouldn’t you wish this or yourself? Overall, you have been good neighbors so far and I wish you all the best. I am still researching the fair market value of this place base on China real estate around the lake, and a complete list of all my investment to date, including time, travel costs and labor. I am also researching on Weibo internet this issue in detail. I hope you all take my current suggestion to heart, because I want to do the right thing and continue in a good relationship. Please put your next suggestions in writing and pass to Etiene Basson, my business partner 15687920191 who is in contact with my attorney.
Warmest Regards,
Timothy A. James

Boston 9/11 Bombings 2013

Boston 9/11 . 2013.
“Should American Remain Desensitized to “Potential” Islamic Terror Attacks?”
The mood in America has changed. America is living in “Desensitized Denial” after the Boston bombings this week. Rather than sadness and horror, one senses a “numbness: but not one of anger or ramped-up patriotism. This is not 9/11. The feeling then was “let’s go get them…” the feeling now is “this isn’t going to stop until we start doing something… different”.
But do what different?
Yes, jumping up and saying we are going to have a “war on terror” isn’t going to stop it.
Then what will stop it? First we must really understand Islam and what it says about itself. Yes, not all Muslims are terrorist, many are peace loving in context, yet most Muslims are very ignorant like everyone else about their Islamic History.
According to the Islamic historian Ibn Is’haq 326,
“Allah said, “No Prophet before Muhammad took booty from his enemy nor prisoners for ransom.” Muhammad said, “I was made victorious with terror. The earth was made a place for me to clean. I was given the most powerful words. Booty was made lawful for me. I was given the power to intercede. These five privilages were awarded to no prophet before me.”
In contrast, the Bible says “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world, And this is the victory that overcomes the world…our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” I John 5.4, 5..
Muslims are universally taught a lie from their youth in every country, that Christians believe God somehow molested Mary “took her to wife” in order to have a “son” Jesus! All Christians know this is a slander and lie against them and God, and their faith. No real Christian ever believed this lie they insist we believe.
Yet, both the Bible and Quran teach Jesus was the Eternal “Word of God” born by a miracle of God, by the Holy Spirit of God. Christians believe Jesus is BOTH 100% God, and 100% man, by God’s divine miracle once in all history. In fact, the Quran teaches that only Allah can do ten things no one else can do, yet Jesus alone can do all ten!
Yet, the lies against Christians which ignites hate in the hearts of Muslims are then supported by verses like Quran 9.5 to “Fight and kill the infidel” which have abrogated the verses which did advocate peace and these ideal are believed by Muslims all over the world, and the bombings will continue until Muslims begin to openly “speak out” and begin exposing these lies in public and boldly even in their mosques. Silence speaks only of their silent agreement with terror.
1
Wars will not change hearts, ultimately, only the Bold Proclamation of Truth changes hearts, even if it must cost people their lives to insist on proclaiming it. It took over 300 years of constant martyrdom before Christian’s blood changed the Roman Empire forever.
Yet Christians forgot how to die boldly proclaiming their faith, and the Catholic Church rose up to not only use force to kill, Muslims and Jews, but during the Reformation, they martyred Christians who disagreed with the Pope.
The bombings will continue until, the Christians wake up and begin proclaiming the truth and begin seeing more Muslim’s heart’s challenged with truth in love. We can no longer ignore them and wish they would just “leave us alone”.
The verdict is out on who did the Boston bombings. It might even be Neo-Islamic, neo-Marxist groups, like the New Black Panthers, offshoots of hate groups like the KKK, yet extreme to even the “Nation of Islam”. I praise God for men like Martin Luther King Jr., and others who lived and died to honor God in spirit and truth. Such men are the true Christians, the true “worshippers of God”. Bridge builders rather than cross burners.
Today, in April 2013, half of the world’s population under the age of 15 are born into a Muslim household. The world is changing demographically.
Selfish abortion has slaughtered an entire generation of innocent souls, yet not in the Muslim world. God’s plan is that they must hear the truth about the lies they have been taught and the truth about real Christians in contrast to the false ones. The tares will be separated from the wheat, and the great harvest will take place among the saved as well as among the lost.
President Barack Obama’s latest statement shows the frustration that everyone feels.
“We know it was bombs that were set off,” he said. “We know that obviously they did some severe damage. We do not know who did them. We do not know whether this was an act of an organization or an individual or individuals. We don’t have a sense of motive yet.”
He used the term terrorism, which he had avoided on Monday night.
“This was a heinous and cowardly act.” he said. “And given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism. Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror.”
It may be that when or if it becomes clear who carried out these murders, there will be a big and definite reaction from America, yet what kind of reaction?
Today, April 2013, only 5% or less of all known Mission funds in the entire world, go towards helping Muslims learn the truth about Islam and Real Christians.
2
“It may be that more than ten years on from 9/11, the first attack on an American city since then is being treated as a horrible, reprehensible “fact of life”, rather than something that undermines a nation’s sense of self?” This sounds like “ho hum, another day of bombings in Iraq, Gaza, or yes now….Boston” …
Yet, God is challenging the Church to “rise up” and SHINE…forth the Truth, yes, the righteous will shine forth like the stars…”Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.” Daniel 12.3. We need to stand as real Christians in the face of all the lies and hatred that abounds.
God wishes to give America another chance…if the people are willing to repent and truly listen.
