If These Are All Symptoms, What Is The Disease?
I was hoping to find something this month from a popular prophecy expert on the state of things this month. For some reason I was not able to find what I was hoping to find, even with an extended internet search. There was not a lack of articles about problems on the hearts of God’s people. The list of problems could easily fill this page. I do sometimes reach a point where I am also interested in solutions to problems along with their causes. More than once I have thought, if this is a symptom of something wrong in our nation what is our nation’s disease. How is it that a nation that often glowingly talks about children as the future of our nation and spends heavily on it education and health care, will then at the same time go to extremes to protect and fund their mass elimination at the same time? How can a nation that can communicate so easily in this age also be so divided and unable to listen to each other? What is the wrong with a nation where a popular Hollywood star says the President’s 12 year old son should be ripped from his mother’s arms and locked away with pedophiles, because he cares about children? What is wrong with a nation when such lying and hypocrisy is so normal, that they rename it “virtue signaling.”
As providence would have it however the Bible came to my rescue once again. In his New Testament letters the Apostle Paul gives some familiar lists of the symptoms of the times in which we are living, especially in this nation. As well he identifies the causes. In Romans Chapter 3 starting at verse 10 he writes.
“As it is written:”
“There is none righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”
“Their throat is an open tomb;
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”;
“The poison of asps is under their lips”;
“Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
“Their feet are swift to shed blood;
Destruction and misery are in their ways;
And the way of peace they have not known.”
And that’s tomorrows and today’s news broadcast. Because, well, that’s what they sell, they find something disgusting to present, and then present the public’s resulting disgust and outrage for a few more days. They don’t intend to actually stop it for the most part however. The mainstream media has a proven business model: addict the masses to disgusting information and the resulting desire to express our disgust and outrage. Kind of the “that smells horrible and dangerous” and then everyone has to take a sniff syndrome.
It’s like the children’s pizza party places, they train kids to put money into games and win paper tickets as a form of healthy, loving, family fun, and celebration so they will feel and do the same as adults in Las Vegas, the Casino or a Lottery near you.
However unlike the daily news the Bible gives the cause of these symptoms as well, so they can be solved. Paul sums up that list with its cause in verse 18..
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
This reminds me of a church meeting I was in once and the question was asked of the pastor about doing a series on Bible prophesy, the pastor informed us that he was taught to not do prophecy because it presented God and Christ in a fearful and judgmental light, which was also why he skipped the books of Job, Revelation, a good part of the of the rest of the Bible in his teachings. I have a feeling he was not the only pastor who was trained to and followed that method. That may also be why some of the “bless me” Christian media is not Bible prophecy friendly as well.
Could it be that many of the leaders of our nation only fear the voters in election cycles, and the media and big donors the rest of the time? It’s likely vary rare that many of them list “fears God and shuns evil” in their campaign ads. It’s even likely that the people of this nation fear the government and mainstream and social media more than God as well. After all if a majority run government says murder is ok as long as it only applies to someone killing a baby, at the mothers request, then a loving and meek god will understand, even if that expands to the sick, and then the elderly, and then the outcast, and then the addict, and then the property owner, and then the farmers, and then the religious, and then imperfect…. Oops, that sounds like another starving socialist nation state experiment again.
I will include a list of verses this month on the Healthy Fear of God that you will not likely hear in church and definitely not in the media as well. Perhaps they can be considered supplements to help ward off some of the recent social diseases of our nation. Till then here is a loving word from Jesus Christ (Matt. 10:28)
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell”

Another Frightening Government Attack on Free Speech.
Many of you already know the certain people within our government are trying constantly to remove free speech from the people. This is especially true when it regards health information. The issue is reaching a fever pitch lately over the right to share information about vaccines and the safety of them, especially for infants. The Gates foundation recently funded a spokesman 52 million dollars to stop free speech about vaccinations. Here is a quick rundown of the issue in an article by Michele Malkin
Watch out. Capitol Hill and Silicon Valley have locked their sights on the next targets of a frightening free speech-squelching purge: independent citizens who dare to raise questions online about the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
I’m vaccinated. My children are up to date. There’s no dispute that vaccines have saved untold lives. But over the years, I’ve voiced my concerns about vaccine claims and government coercion in my newspaper columns and blog posts. These concerns include my objections to Gardasil mandates for schoolchildren in Texas and California; schools’ threatening parents with jail time for refusing chickenpox shots for their kids; ineffectiveness of the flu vaccine; contamination issues at vaccine plants abroad; lack of data on vaccines’ long-term and synergistic effects on children; and pharma-funded politicians’ financial conflicts of interest.
In 2004, I recounted my family’s firsthand experience with bully doctors who balked at even the mildest questioning of the wisdom of the newborn hepatitis B immunization. When my husband and I asked if we could simply delay this particular shot, as the vaccine is for a virus that is contracted mostly through intravenous drug use and sexual contact, my son’s pediatrician angrily kicked us out of her practice.
Does this informed skepticism make me and other like-minded parents public health menaces, as the World Health Organization has proclaimed? Are we “sociopaths,” as a journalist at The Atlantic once sneered? Apparently so.
At a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Washington state’s public health secretary, John Wiesman, demanded that the feds launch a national campaign to counter “anti-vaccine” groups that are spreading what he condemned as “false information.” Weisman called for increased funding from the Centers for Disease Control to combat opponents of the state’s push to prevent parents from opting their children out of immunizations for personal or philosophical reasons. Health officials have blamed vaccine critics’ social media influence for recent measles outbreaks. So Wiesman further urged Twitter, Facebook and Google to “use whatever mechanism they have available to stop promoting pseudoscience.”
Let’s be clear: Misinformation of all kinds abounds on the internet. The world’s most influential “mainstream” media websites and celebrity social media accounts, for example, recklessly fanned the flames of the recent Covington Catholic High School and Jussie Smollett hate crime hoaxes. No one in Washington has called for the boycott of The Washington Post or TMZ over their false and misleading stories. But for some reason (hint: pharmaceutical big business), politicians and government bureaucrats are now hell-bent on de-platforming (censoring) any and all dissenters who challenge mandatory vaccine regimens.
Under pressure from Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Amazon pulled the documentaries “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe,” “Man Made Epidemic” and “Shoot ’em Up: The Truth About Vaccines” from its Prime Video streaming service. Last week, Google-owned YouTube moved to demonetize “anti-vaccine” channels, tweak algorithms to suppress vaccine “conspiracy” videos and combat “vaccine hesitancy.” Pinterest blocks users from using the search terms “vaccine,” “vaccinations” and “anti-vax,” no matter the quality of the results. Facebook plans to downgrade vaccine skeptics’ content on newsfeeds, recommended user groups and ads.
Is there junk science on the “anti-vaccine” side? Sure. But you can’t address this issue without also addressing the problem with physicians and public health flacks who are unwilling to discuss the full risks of vaccines as well as their benefits; pro-vaccination groups that provide incorrect information about vaccines’ duration of protection; physicians who refuse to care for children who are not “fully” vaccinated; and the comparative risk-benefit ratios of different vaccines.
As for efficacy, consider this new data: A recent whooping cough outbreak at the private Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles last week resulted in 30 students contracting the illness, all of whom were vaccinated. Of 18 unvaccinated students, none caught the disease. Will pointing this out on my Facebook and Twitter accounts bring down the Silicon Valley ban hammer?
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who happens to be a physician and parent himself, was the lone voice of dissent at the Senate hearing this week. While acknowledging that the benefits of vaccines generally outweigh their risks, he noted the plain truth that “it is wrong to say there are no risks to vaccines.” He added that over $4 billion has been paid by the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for adults and children who have been injured or died as a result of receiving federally recommended childhood vaccines.
Is it unacceptable fear-mongering to raise that point? How about to share information on vaccine manufacturers’ astonishing exemption from product liability? Or to point parents to new research findings on brain injuries caused by vaccines, which can be found at VaccinePapers.org? Or to link them to a recent statement by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which “strongly opposes federal interference in medical decisions, including mandated vaccines.”
When it comes to protecting our children, skepticism is always the best medicine. We need more free speech, not less. Those who seek to suppress debate and discussion in the name of the “public good” are the true health threats.
Here are some verifiable facts the government is fighting the people being able to hear.
Verifiable Facts About Vaccination Not “Fake News”
Ten years before the birth of the Internet, one of the best-kept secrets in America was that vaccines can and do cause injury and death and that some individuals are more vulnerable to being harmed by vaccination. In 1982, an Emmy award winning television documentary DPT: Vaccine Roulette produced by consumer reporter Lea Thompson alerted parents and pediatricians that the whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT shots could brain damage children. It was a mainstream media outlet – NBC – that blew the whistle on the pharmaceutical industry’s neglect, and the medical establishment’s denial of DPT vaccine reactions, and the 50-year failure of industry and government to improve the safety of a vaccine mandated for all children to attend school.
Three years later in 1985, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published DPT: A Shot in the Dark, a book that further documented the risks and failures of the old crude whole cell pertussis vaccine. A year later, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. In that legislation, for the first time the US government acknowledged that FDA licensed and CDC recommended vaccines can and do injure children.
Since the 1986 Act was passed, the government has awarded four billion dollars in compensation to thousands of children and adults who have suffered permanent injuries, or whose loved ones have died after being given federally licensed and recommended vaccines.
Between 1991 and 2013, the National Academy of Sciences published a series of reports on vaccine adverse effects These reports confirmed that vaccines can cause brain and immune system disorders, and that genetic, biological and environmental risk factors make some individuals more vulnerable to being harmed but doctors don’t know how to identify them because of gaps in vaccine science.
More than 684,000 adverse events following vaccination, including hospitalizations, injuries and deaths, have been reported to the federal government since 1990. This number is estimated to represent less than one percent of all vaccine adverse events that have actually occurred.
The U.S. government now recommends that children receive 69 doses of 16 vaccines between the day of birth and age 18, with 50 doses given before the age of six, which is triple the number of vaccinations given to children in 1983. Almost all of these vaccinations are mandated by states for children to attend school and some children are being refused medical care and adults are being fired from their jobs if they don’t get every one of them, even after suffering vaccine reactions and deterioration in health.
Vaccine policy and mandates have helped to create a global vaccine market now projected to bring in a staggering $57 billion dollars for drug companies by 2025
These are verifiable facts, not “fake news.” But very soon you may not be able to get this information or talk about it online.
It is already happening.
The Atheist Debate
For several years Jim has aired the Atheist Debate with Ray Comfort for National Atheist Day, also known as April fool’s Day.
For years Atheists have petitioned the Government to have their own National Atheist Day. After years of being turned down, the Government finally gave them an official day: April 1st. The amazing thing is not only the fact that this is on April Fools’ Day, but Scripture also tells us it is the fool that says in his heart, “there is no God.” Also amazingly enough, on every April 1st, there is a debate between an Atheist and a Christian on the topic of Does God Exist. This is a debate by a Christian (Ray Comfort) vs. an Atheist (Ron Barrier).
I notice every year that several people contact the ministry about the program, usually college students who the program touches in a good way. Recent quantum physics discoveries have proved that the science many atheists based their beliefs on are now considered incomplete if not totally false.
If you would like a copy of the DVD, The Atheist Debate it’s available this month for a gift of any amount.
50 Reasons Why The Rapture is Close
Dave Reagan is one of the top Bible prophecy experts in the nation, and he takes you on an incredible journey through 50 Bible prophecies in this DVD and how each is being, or has been, fulfilled. Jesus IS coming soon! This is a great DVD to get fired up with and pass around!
A recent book by Allan Walker titled Signs of The Times details and updates much of the information Dave Reagan covers in this DVD. The scripture contains 109 specific prophecies from the Old Testament which were literally fulfilled during Christ’s first coming. The revelation of the second coming of Christ is one of the most important and most frequently mentioned doctrines of the New Testament. One out of every twenty-five verses in the New Testament refers either to the rapture of the church or to Christ’s coming to reign over the world. Current events are fitting into the precise pattern outlined by the prophets of the Bible. This DVD contains the original presentation and an updated one by Dave Reagan as well. This is not available on the resource list and will only be available this month. Get 50 Reasons Why the Rapture Is Close for a gift of any amount this month.
Seventh-Day Adventism: The Spirit Behind The Church
If you happen to be one of those people who watches YouTube much you have probably had at least one of the many prophecy videos put out recently by some Seventh Day Adventist suggested for you to watch. They are all pretty much the same, some animations of the book of Daniel prophecies that end with the claim that Sunday worship is the mark of the beast being presented from out of nowhere, Really!
This hard-hitting, eye-opening documentary Seventh-Day Adventism; The Spirit Behind The Church explores the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, its origins, and the changes which have occurred throughout the years. It examines the claims of the religion’s founder, the late prophetess Ellen G. White, and compares her unique beliefs with Biblical truth. You will meet a number of former high-ranking Church leaders, many of them 4th generation members, and discover what happened when they embarked on a journey to uncover the truth about their organization. You will be shocked and amazed at what they found.
Since a huge proportion of YouTube watchers are spiritually curious younger to middle aged men you will likely run into someone who has seen and considered one of these SDA presentations. This is a great video to pass on to those considering Seventh-Day Adventism.
The DVD Seventh-Day Adventism; The Spirit Behind The Church confronts this cult head on, and is available this month for a gift of any amount.
I have to wonder why YouTube, a Google company would be promoting and suggesting these SDA videos so abundantly while restricting other Christian videos more and more all the time. Perhaps the false teaching that Sunday worship is the mark of the beast, and not the truth that the mark of the beast is about a one world government system fits the YouTube / Google hidden agenda better.
GROW YOUR OWN VEGTABLES
It seems to happen every year with me, especially after a brutal winter like many of us experienced this year. About 2 weeks after the I.R.S. packet arrives a couple of bright full color seed catalog appears in the mail. I’m not sure who catches it first, me or the stray cat, but before my taxes get paid spring fever will be in full force here. I have a history of very productive container gardens, which work well here in the high desert. In the U.S. today even a small salad and spinach container garden or even a kitchen counter sprout garden can easily double the nutrition you get in your diet.
This month we will be airing the audio from the Grow Your Own Vegetables DVD. It seems growing our own food has become a lost art.
