September Newsletter 2014 (1) PDF VERSION
Greetings in Jesus…!
So here we are in September already! I was just getting to like the Summer! More than just the leaves are changing here; the whole world is changing fast. Even the liberals want Obama gone! Meanwhile, catastrophic weather is creating havoc worldwide, Christians are being tortured and killed in Iraq, Rosh Hashana is on Sept. 25-26, the 2nd of the 4 blood moons is next month on Oct. 8th.,Christians in America run the opposite direction of the Great Commission thinking going to Church is our job. Crime in the U.S. is escalating like never before as the economy plunges into oblivion while the media tells us, don‟t worry, be happy! What has to happen before people realize the fat lady is near the end of her song? Newsweek going out of business?
The liberal Newsweek Magazine is going out of business but not before it attacks the President. Wonderful story!
This is quite an article, even more so when you consider that NEWSWEEK finally had the guts to admit it. WOW!
Newsweek COVER!!! It is their last cover before they fold. Also read the article at the end. AMAZING!!!
Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the protective wall built around him by the liberal media….
By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?
Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: Ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.
He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling Associations: The white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected President? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.
Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.
Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?
Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.
Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.
And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be President despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary. What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.
The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches.)
And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a President so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our President is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.
Did Jesus give us the Name of the Anti-Christ?
There have been many “Antichrists.” The Apostle John told us long ago that this would be the case:
“Little children, it is the last time and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1John 2:18.
But it is well understood that a certain man will establish himself as THE Antichrist or “The Abomination that maketh desolate” or “The Man of Sin,” “Son of Perdition,” and so on. But pop-culture, rightly or wrongly, has labeled this End Time person as THE ANTICHRIST. John even tells us that “Anti-christ shall come” but seems to distinguish between the one person; the spiritual and the plural. So we will carry on with the use of the Antichrist. In Luke chapter 10 Jesus is having a conversation with Disciples; 70 of them to be exact. They just returned – rejoicing that demons were “subject” to them and joyful over the ministry success they were experiencing. Jesus gave them power and they were exercising that power mightily. When they reported to Jesus about their victories, Jesus seemingly interrupts the festivities to make a type of proclamation. He says: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Luk. 10:18. Luke 10:18 is written in Greek, but was probably spoken in Aramaic. Two words are important, „lightening and „heaven. In the Greek, lightening is “astrape.” In Hebrew, the relative of Aramaic, the word lightening is “baraq.” In Greek, the word heaven is “ouranos” but this word is also used to describe the “high places, air,” and also known as “Satan‟s domain” where he fell from in Luke 10:8. So it‟s interchangeable depending upon what is being said. In Isaiah 14:14, Satan says, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will be like the Most High.”
Here the word in Hebrew: “bamah.” The words in Luke 10:18 are lightening: baraq and high places: bamah.
Let me share just a little with you now. First of all, his name is not Barack Hussein Obama. It‟s Barry. Barry Soetoro. He was born in Mombasa, what is now Kenya in Africa. We know that now. I heard his own grandmother say she was present at his birth “in Kenya.” And as you know shortly afterwards, she died. So, he has a fake name, a fake social security number, which is a felony, and a fake birth certificate. We know this now too. He came out of nowhere; he has no family back-ground. He hates Israel and America. You remember that Church he attended for so long that preached “Not God bless America, God Damn America.” And after being groomed 6 years for the position of President of the United States, he actually pulled it off!
Now for political reasons, Obama has said things like: “As a Christian” then goes on to quote some Scripture; but we already know he‟s a Muslim! He is a liar! I mentioned this on the air as well. There is no record that Barry ever legally changed his name to Barak Obama, but the strangest thing of all is…Why on earth would he ever pick out the name he did?!
Could he have known what his name means in Hebrew? I doubt if Barry knows Aramaic but I‟m sure Satan does. (Now I‟m not saying Obama is THE anti-christ.) Maybe it‟s just a coincidence. But what a bizarre coincidence!
There‟s 8 sections on the DVD we have.
1. Obama‟s Hidden Past.
2. Three Ex-CIA Agents expose Obama‟s birth certificate.
3. Seven birth certificate problems.
4. Obama signs the NDAA S 1867 bill into law, (he did this without any of us knowing about it on Dec. 31st, 2011. This new law makes it possible for any American to be arrested by our own military and detained permanently without a judge or jury or any trial!
5. The Obama Coup.
6. Obama caught off guard during an interview with Fox News.
7. Did Jesus really give us the name of the anti-christ? (Goes into further detail than in this newsletter), and,
8. A salvation message.
If you would like to obtain a copy of this DVD, it‟s available for a gift of any amount this month and you are encouraged to make copies and get it out to others!
It‟s simply titled: Obama’s Secrets Exposed!
Preppers New Season
As many of you know, the National Geographic Channel has had a program for a few years now called Doomsday Preppers. I‟m sure they titled this as (Doomsday) Preppers because they do not know Bible prophecy. Yet they are partially right. For non born-again Christians, there really is a doomsday coming. After the Rapture of the Church, God is going to pour out His wrath upon a Christ-rejecting world. (1 Thess. Ch. 4) But the question is, just how bad will things become BEFORE our blessed hope or the Rapture of the Church? Things are getting bad fast now and keep in mind that the National Geographic Channel didn‟t start their Doomsday Preppers programs in order to start people preparing for hard times coming, they started it because hundreds of thousands of people had already been preparing for the hard times coming! Since their first programs on this subject starting airing, many more hundreds of thousands of Americans have started doing the same. This has never happened in America before. Also, hundreds of thousands of Americans have actually left this country over the last few years. So, what about Christians? Are we to leave this country? And if so, where are we to go? We as Christians fall into a total different category than the world. We have certain promises in God‟s Word. Many, really good and some not so good. For instance, He said in this world we would suffer persecutions. But then He also said, behold, I have overcome the world. But then Jesus spoke of other such things as: If the salt has lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is therefore good for nothing but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. In other words, if you are not doing anything for the Lord in this late hour, you are expendable. Now, these verses have nothing to do with your salvation, only your continued existence on this planet. Be used by God every day!

The Harbinger – The Tree has Died!
The author of “The Harbinger,” the inspiration behind the “Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” documentary, says the 7th Harbinger is no more.
A tree that was placed at the site of the 9/11 Muslim terror attack in New York City has died, has been removed, and destroyed. “Harbinger” author Jonathan Cahn says it‟s because of his book that the tree will not be replaced. His work examines the 9 Harbingers, or warnings, recorded in the Bible that were delivered to Israel before the nation disintegrated. He contends God is giving the same 9 warnings now to America to urge the nation to repent. One of the Harbingers was a sycamore tree at Ground Zero, which after the destruction of the Twin Towers was replaced by an ever-green, a move Cahn believes follows the Isaiah prophecy. Now the replacement tree is gone, he said.
“The ancient sign of nearing national judgment has been manifested. The erez tree has fallen. The 7th Harbinger now speaks of impending judgment. The Tree of Hope, the symbol of America‟s resurgence is dead,” he explained. “The keepers of the Tree of Hope did everything they could to save the withering tree. They even changed the soil in which it grew. But no matter what they did, the tree continued to wither away and die,” said Cahn.
“Finally, in the spring of this year, the tree planted in the place of the fallen sycamore of Ground Zero, the symbol of a rising America, was uprooted. The 7th Harbinger is no more.” He had written in his book a prophetic word concerning America‟s Erez Tree, the Tree of Hope, saying, “…but when a nation such as this places its hope in its own powers to save itself, then its hope is false. Its true hope is found only in returning to God. Without that, the Tree of Hope is a Harbinger of the day when its strong cedars come crashing down to the earth.”
Only recently did Cahn discover that “The Harbinger‟s” prophecy has come true. The news came to him from those who had recently walked the grounds of St. Paul‟s Chapel in New York City at the corner of Ground Zero where the erez tree had been planted in place of the fallen sycamore. Unlike the planting of the Tree of Hope, which was done publicly and followed by a publicized ceremony, the tree was uprooted with little notice given, out of the public eye. In fact it was only after several inquiries were made as to the trees disappearance, that WND found out what happened. The Tree of Hope, the symbol of a resurgent America, was uprooted in the spring of this year. The day after its uprooting it was entirely destroyed.
“In the Bible,” said Cahn, “the felling of the cedar, or the destruction of the erez tree, is a particularly stark sign given to a nation nearing the day of its judgment. It is one of several continuing manifestations of what appears in „The Harbinger‟ – coming true after the book‟s release. What these continuing signs signify is that America‟s progression to judgment is continuing – if not accelerating. Combine this with the fact that America is indeed continuing on a rapidly accelerating course of apostasy from God and moral collapse – and it comprises an ominous warning: America is approaching a day of judgment.”
He said his source regarding the destruction of the tree also told him there would not be another tree planted because of “The Harbinger.” He said that because of the book, people have been coming from all over the United States to see the tree. WND reported earlier on the Old Testament prophecy, the tree that was struck down and the replacement tree in New York. The roots of the sycamore tree were preserved as a memorial.
“The Harbinger,” which is described as a wake-up call for Americans, deciphers the stunning connections between the cryptic biblical prophecy and current events. Isaiah 9:10 states, “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” (King James Version)
The words were first uttered by leaders in ancient Israel in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali. The prophet makes clear it was a limited judgment by God against apostasy. The purpose was not to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.
The northern kingdom of Israel did not repent of its rebellion against God‟s commandments and was eventually conquered and removed from its land by the ancient Assyrians. Eventually, the southern kingdom of Judah also was overcome by the Babylonians after the Jews refused to repent as well.
Cahn, the pastor of the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, NJ, claims the prophecy‟s statement, the “bricks are fallen down” refers to the crumbling of the World Trade Center. The verse, he says, connotes an attitude of defiance, a desire to rebuild with stronger materials instead of acknowledging the hand of God and moving toward national repentance.
The verse mentions sycamore and cedar trees, and it‟s here that things start to get eerie. “After the cloud of dust began to clear, police officers, rescue workers and onlookers gazed at the little plot of land at the edge of Ground Zero,” Cahn writes in “The Harbinger.” “There in the middle of the ash and debris that covered the ground was a fallen tree. It would soon become a symbol of 9/11 and of Ground Zero. And it was a symbol, but one much more ancient than anyone there could have realized and one carrying a message no one could have fathomed.”
“The tree at Ground Zero that was struck down on September 11 was a sycamore tree.” Not only was a sycamore tree struck on 9/11, but it was replaced in the exact same location by another tree of the type mentioned in the original Hebrew, an “erez” tree, which is the same genus as the cedar.
“The most natural thing to have done would have been to replace one sycamore with another,” Cahn writes. “But the prophecy required that the fallen sycamore be replaced with a tree of an entirely different nature. So the tree that replaced the sycamore of Ground Zero was likewise not a sycamore. According to the prophecy, the sycamore must be replaced by the biblical erez. So it must be replaced by a conifer tree.”
And that‟s what took place in 2003, as a conifer tree, the “Tree of Hope” as it was called, was planted in the spot where the sycamore was slammed on 9/11.
But Cahn now is warning that America is advancing down the path that Israel followed to destruction. “One of the signs given in the Bible of national judgment is that of a tree withering away,” he explained, quoting Eze. 17:10. “Behold, being planted, shall it prosper? Shall it not utterly wither away?” And he said Jer. 11:16 also talks about it: “He has kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.” Cahn said the “breaking off of branches speaks of a nation whose glory and powers are to be removed.” “If one went down to Ground Zero in the past few years, one would find the Tree of Hope withering away and its branches cut off,” he said. “But perhaps the strongest warning of judgment involving a tree is that of the destruction of the cedar tree.” Isa. 2:12-13 states: “For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon everything that is high and lifted up…upon all the cedars of Lebanon.” And Zec. 11:2 states, “For the cedar (erez tree) is fallen, as the mighty are spoiled.”
The loss of the tree “is another ominous sign concerning America,” said Cahn, because it appears to be following a known path.
“Before God judges a nation, He sends warning,” explains Cahn. “He sent warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call, the call to return to God. But the nation responded with defiance. God then gave 9 Harbingers of judgment, 9 prophetic signs, alarms and foreshadows of what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God‟s will. And God likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike – the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance, but with defiance. And now the 9 Harbingers of judgment have reappeared and have done so on American soil.” Cahn says America is uncannily re-enacting ancient Israel‟s behavior prior to its judgment and eventual fall.

I have a very rare opportunity to go onto another station but this one is in Phoenix, AZ where the Mormons are building a temple and are taking over. Many Christians are concerned. The station even reaches over into Mesa AZ where there‟s tons of fundamentalist Mormons still practicing polygamy believing they must do this in order to get to heaven. There are many women and young girls trying to escape this cult. If the cultivate broadcast were able to get onto this station, I believe many would get saved and Christians in that region would become better equipped to deal with more than just the Mormon takeover. The problem is finances for the airtime so if you can help, this would be a great time to do so!
