National Cathedral in Washington, DC
God has no place in this place

Wow, there it is. Here it comes. In 2008 witches swept out the old and chanted in the new administration at the Washington monument. Last year DC was rattled with a warning shot, an earthquake that caused credible damage to, among other things, the “National Cathedral” and the Washington Monument pointing to God. Was God trying to get a subtle point across?

Where is this country? It’s been clear that it’s been on the down swing, okay, on the down slide, okay, really it’s been a free fall. People clinging to the sides as much as they can, others falling over the side, not noticed because of all the posturing. The events of 9/11 were a wake up call like in “The Harbinger” by Johnathan Cahn, and for a moment Americans, for the most part were somewhat penitent and drawn to God. But the leaders of the country pulled up the American bootstraps and declared, “We are America. We will rise again more powerful than before. Nothing can stop us”.

And we did. Perceived prosperity accelerated exponentially. Things were good. In spite of a war in Iraq,  unemployment was low, Americans had money in their pockets, investments for retirement were soaring, everyone was buying homes, cars, video games and the latest IPhone. Then lightning struck and the housing bubble burst, the sound of escaping air was deafening revealing a tear that exposed toxic finances. As the financial market bled to the ground the tear was covered with an empty bandage still leaking to the ground. The wound is great, quick get another doctor, a second opinion. So America decided on a pill dispenser and that’s what he did. Dispense, dispense dispense. Except that the pills were toxic. And now, instead of closing down toxic institutions, America itself is toxic. One court has already shot down DOMA. The courts are breaking the law allowing illegals to over run the country and vote. The murder of children is going to be a taxpayer expense.

Now America needs to make choices. Do we choose a man who has driven America so far down there is only one direction to look and that is up? Or do we choose someone who is going to increase the debt but hasn’t said so? Do we choose someone who, albeit, is openly hostile to ethics and morality or do we choose someone who’s good at throwing out Red Herrings? Neither candidate can give us a straight answer on where America will stand with Israel, even though the end of the world, as we know it, is closer than we think.  I can’t remember the last time there was a scenario where the more we know the less we know.

Hurricane Sandy

So we have an election coming in a couple of weeks. Maybe. While this election is turning out to be a perfect storm, where everyone gets harmed, God is preparing His own. The National Weather Service only two days ago referred to Sandy as dancing around not sure where she wants to go. Now terror strikes their hearts as they realize that the potential, very real, of a perfect storm is bearing down on the east coast. Is this a false flag? Has HAARP been overly active setting up an Obama, “you’re not getting me out of office”, scenario? Only God knows for sure.

Am I foretelling the future? Nah? But God is just and sovereign. He’s sent natural disaster after natural disaster these last two years and no one seems to be listening. It’s time to listen up. God is calling to you, to come to Him so that what ever may befall us here, you can have His protection. These things are all just temporary, God is calling you to eternity. Accept Him, accept His gift in Jesus and all of the above will be fairly meaningless.

I'm a musician and worship leader, intent on following wherever God leads and directs me, with His leading's in the Spirit and others bonking me on the head ( hopefully not much of the latter). My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.

  1. You know as I sat here and read what you wrote, I have such a peace within me that is flowing like the ‘strength’ I feel as a real substance these past few months….these ‘substances’ are so real…so very real…the gentleness of them, the severity of them, and the fulness of the grace of God. They all reveal the ‘fear we have ‘for’ all who have not the Witness of The Holy Ghost within our own hearts that we are the Children of The Most High God. I am not saying that these substances are or have been the only time for ‘The Witness’ for that is of God’s doing, I am saying however that for His reason He is granting the substance of the Eternal to all of us for the things that are coming.

    As I started to say and was led to insert the above first..I had a talk with a lady today that brought up the Emergency Surgery I had to have in March of this year…the whole family was having a celebration for my daughters birthday..we all decided to go to the Mall and out to Dinner as well later that day. I had cooked a large Birthday Breakfast for her and all the family present…then as we went to get ready for the rest of the day’s outing, a ‘Pain’ struck me, I tried with all I knew and the help of my family to administer what ever could be done for some comfort. It usally helped….but this time nothing helped…as I write this I am seeing so much of what you wrote, in this as well. The pain increased, till I could hear nothing but my own screams. Then my screams turned to a different texture…each breath was ‘screamed out to ‘My Father’ (God)…reasonings began to surface, yet the screams took on more of a desperation, because the reasonings did not bring effect or comfort…as the pain got stronger it was impossible to even believe that pain could get that strong…the talks to God my Father began for more of strength to ‘endure’ ..I heard myself saying ‘saying Not my Will but Thy Will be done and what is and not to bring any shame or reproach against Him or His name….the pain increased till I found my self crawling to the door for anyone on the street passing by to help get me to the hospital…my daughter and family had left to run an errand just before this all happened…which took about 30 minutes total…they were as shocked to see this had turned from ‘a pain’ discomfort to life threatening…for the next 11 days I stayed in the ICU with my family warned daily it could be any day or any minute of my death.
    …I say all of this because as then as is now, we see how the World will go thru the stages of an enormous pangs of pain and many will look to solve the problems, for the comfort to return…yet as they see the situation is only getting worse they turn to God…in the prayer I prayed I understand that many will ‘curse our Lord’ for their misery and bring shame to them before the Most High and all of Heaven’s residents… and much laughter to Hell’s residents. This is the same as in the Days of Noah…so is the days of many waiting for the “Rapture”…God help them when they find out ….God’s “Word warned us all” of the ‘immediately after the Tribulation these horrors will occur and we are to stand faitful to the end. I pray for all who reads this, that they too will pray that they do not bring shame or reproach upon themselves before the High Council of God and all the witnesses who went before them…

    Thank you, Thank you … so much for this article today, I have oftend wondered about the Emergency Surgery…what was the natural reason for the surgery some may ask… One of my kidneys shut down…and I had NEVER had any symptom, or problem…the area of the back I thought was due to the many back surgersies and scar tissue causing a flare up ….thus the many tries of solving it…but all of this is to surfice that even in this the symptoms of pain in that area were building up within and not until it had gotten so bad did it come to the surface…

    And with your article today Thank God, The Holy Spirit has given me another veiw of how people will react and the urgency within them, their ownselves trying to fix a problem they have no control over…then the awareness of the shock they must and will automatically call upon God only to their own awareness they ”will and must go thru” what is…then they will either Praise the Lord by ‘saying Not my Will but Thy Will be done.,,the stillness in my heart, is a solemness of great awe of our God and His Name is ‘Jesus’ ….Thank you! I can’t thank you enough for this Article..

    America is truly about to ‘endure’ such suffering such suffering…with The Lord watching so many Christians listening to so many Christian Leaders telling them it is Okay to Choose a Cult Leader, for a Leader of this Nation.when these people have for over 50 years Warned everyone that Mormonism is a Cult and not they are ”supporting and saying that a Mormon ”is” a Christian…the Worlds Ideal Preacher ‘Billy Graham has endorsed and supporting this very thing so much so has ‘removed the Mormon Religion off of their web site as a Cult..and now has them as ”A Christian’…..God folks, God help us folks…God help us…in my own neighborhood I see ‘many signs popping up’ all over their lawns…”Vote for Romney”….God help us..when thse very people last year and the beginnig of this year ‘also warned folks, about Cults of all kinds…Mormons as well…they now say ‘it is a spiritual thing and voting for Romney is a physical earthly thing…God help the blindness and deception…God did not have Sex with a Woman and she had 2 sons …One Jesus and one Lucifer… this rips my heart to peices as I watch these things ….Guard your hearts my brethren we are in most danger…this is not something we can ‘Name it and Claim it’ and demand that God ”honor his World ‘for us’…
    rather it is a time that we will see ”the Hand of God like this Article you wrote will reveal daily more and more surface right before our eyes…!! And we can not boast of any assurance of deliverance or lack of suffering..but we can stand fast and pray that our Lord Jesus will find ”Faith” within us when he returns….!!

    • So well said, thank you for sharing.

    • Dear Andrea, am so sorry for your pain. I also have endured much as well. Will not go into details, health probs 24/7/365 in constant pain, fatigue for decades. Had a son die from kidney failure.

      Please visit the official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints website for what they really believe. It’s not that nonsense of God having sex with a woman & having Jesus & Lucifer as mortal sons. God is every persons “Heavenly Father”, and Jesus Christ is His Son, the Savior of the world. He died to save EVERYONE from their sins. Our part is to repent and accept Jesus. Then do our best to follow Jesus and to love others.

      This life is a test of choosing between good and bad. For people to freely choose there must be democracy. The Constitution was inspired by God. Our Constitution is now hanging by a thread due to the politics of several decades.

      I wish u well and pray that your health is on the mend.

      • I need to interject before this hits the fan. All gibberish about sex and magic underwear aside Andrea does have a point. I studied Mormonism and the whole pretense was begun by a 17 year old in need of attention, and adults in a sensitive spiritual time gave it to him. Joseph Smith, then, carried the claim to far out proportions out of the need to qualify the religion he started by calling the Church the Apostasy. The whole history, then, of Mormonism is based on isolationism. It is a cult, based on it’s icons(Moroni, hidden genealogy plates, the trek out of Israel, etc). Now, it tries to enjoin itself to Christianity as a whole.

        In their attempt to get Obama out of the White House mainline big names are cooling the Mormon cult talk in order to endorse your candidate. The result is a weird fulfillment of what Joseph Smith claimed. Yes, many are now in apostasy, embracing what ever is necessary, to get what they, in the world, want including throwing Mormonism in to the emerging church ecumenical movement.

        So, in a way, Joseph Smith was prophetic, he just had no idea. He’s just in the same place as many RCC followers.

      • Anonymous…My Reply to your ‘suggestion of me…”visit the official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints website for what they really believe.

        Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

  2. I didnt get an email confirmation.

  3. Wow-and I was hoping Romney was going to rescue us from radical islam!!

  4. 1. Mormon prophets have taught that Jesus was conceived by sexual intercourse (physical union) between God the Father and Mary:

    Brigham Young taught: “The birth of the Savior was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood—was begotten of his Father as we were of our fathers” (Journal of Discourses vol.8, p.115); and “when the Virgin Mary conceived the child Jesus, the Father had begotten him in his own likeness [flesh and blood]. He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost” (Journal of Discourses, vol.1, p.50).
    Brigham Young insisted: “I will say that I was naturally begotten; so was my father, and also my Savior Jesus Christ…he is the first begotten of his father in the flesh, and there was nothing unnatural about it” (Journal of Discourses vol.8, p.211); “Now remember from this time forth, and for ever, that Jesus Christ was not begotten by the Holy Ghost” (Journal of Discourses, vol.1, p.51).
    Orson Pratt (LDS apostle) taught: “the Father and Mother of Jesus, according to the flesh, must have been associated together in the capacity of Husband and Wife…as God was the first husband to her, it may be that He only gave her to be the wife of Joseph while in this mortal state, and that He intended after the resurrection to again take her as one of his own wives to raise up immortal spirits in eternity” (The Seer. p.158, 1853).
    Joseph Fielding Smith wrote: “The birth of the Savior was a natural occurrence unattended by any degree of mysticism, and the Father God was the literal parent of Jesus in the flesh as well as in the spirit” (Religious Truths Defined, p.44).
    This teaching persists today:

    Bruce McConkie (LDS apostle) states: “Christ was begotten by an Immortal Father in the same way that mortal men are begotten by mortal fathers” (Mormon Doctrine, p. 547, 1979).
    Carfred Broderick (Mormon author) writes: “God is a procreating personage of flesh and bone…latter-day prophets have made it clear that despite what it says in Matthew 1:20, the Holy Ghost was not the father of Jesus…The Savior was fathered by a personage of flesh and bone” (Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Autumn, 1967, p.100-101).
    Mormon leaders have taught that Jesus was a polygamist. Because Mormon prophets considered polygamy a righteous principle and practiced it (despite reversals in doctrine and concessions to U.S. law by the LDS Church), it is easy to see why they taught Jesus was married and had multiple wives:

    Orson Pratt (LDS apostle) stated: “the great Messiah who was the founder of the Christian religion, was a polygamist…marrying many honorable wives himself…God the Father had a plurality of wives…the Son followed the example of his Father…both God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ inherit their wives in eternity as well as in time” (The Seer, p.172, 1853).
    Jedediah M. Grant (second counselor to Brigham Young) stated: “the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently based on polygamy…a belief of a plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesus and his followers” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 1, p.346).

    Some Mormon leaders contend that the wedding at Cana was an account Jesus’ marriage:

    Apostle Orson Hyde: “…Jesus Christ was married at Cana of Galilee… Mary, Martha, and others were his wives … he begat children” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p.210).
    Jedediah M. Grant: “Jesus was the bridegroom at the marriage of Cana of Galilee, and he told them what to do… Now there was actually a marriage; and if Jesus was not the bridegroom on that occasion, please tell who was. If any man can show this, and prove that it was not the Savior of the world, then I will acknowledge I am in error. We say it was Jesus Christ who was married, to be brought into the relation whereby he could see his seed, before he was crucified” (Journal of Discourses, vol.2, p.82).
    Orson Hyde: “It will be borne in mind that once on a time, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and on a careful reading of that transaction, it will be discovered that no less a person than Jesus Christ was married on that occasion. If he was never married, his intimacy with Mary and Martha, and the other Mary also whom Jesus loved, must have been highly unbecoming and improper to say the best of it” (Journal of Discourses, vol.4, p.259).
    Orson Pratt: “We have now clearly shown that God the Father had a plurality of wives, one or more being in eternity, by whom He begat our spirits as well as the spirit of Jesus His First Born… We have also proved most clearly that the Son followed the example of his Father, and became the great Bridegroom to whom kings’ daughters and many honorable wives are to be married” (The Seer, p. 172).
    According to Mormon cosmology, there was a pre-existence, better described as a pre-mortal life, in which human spirits were literal children of heavenly parents.[1] Though their spirits were created, the essential “intelligence” of these spirits is considered eternal, and without beginning. During this pre-existence, two plans were said to have been presented, one championed by Lucifer (Satan) that would have involved loss of moral agency, and another championed by God the Father. When his plan was not accepted, Lucifer is said to have rebelled and taken “the third part” of the hosts of heaven with him to the earth to serve as tempters. According to a plan of salvation as described by God the Father, Jehovah (the antemortal Jesus Christ according to Mormonism) created the earth, under the direction of God the Father, as a place where humanity would be tested. After the resurrection all men and women except spirits that followed Lucifer and the sons of perdition would be assigned one of three degrees of glory. Within the highest degree, the Celestial Kingdom, there are three divisions, and those in the highest of these divisions would become gods and goddesses through a process called exaltation or “eternal progression”. The doctrine of eternal progression was succinctly summarized by Lorenzo Snow: “As man now is, God once was: As God now is, man may be.”[2]

    The Earth’s creation, according to Mormon scripture, was not ex nihilo, but organized from existing matter. The faith teaches that this earth is just one of many inhabited worlds, and that there are many governing heavenly bodies, including a planet or star Kolob which is said to be nearest the throne of God. According to the King Follett discourse, God the Father himself once passed through mortality like Jesus did, but how, when, or where that took place is unclear. The prevailing view among Mormons is that God once lived on a planet with his own higher god.[3][4]

    BLASPHEMY!!

  5. I also studied this cult (Mormonism) as well as many other cults, Catholicism Edgar Casey and many more, it is a spirit that is no different than in the Old Testament where the spirits have just past onto the ‘today’ and put a different slant on it to get others to join in their diabolical agenda, get as many away from and keep from Jesus Christ as possible before He returns.
    Just as today many follow ‘dreams, visions, Angels bringing messages’ ..feelings of all manner of things and make many follow them’…this is foolishness and The Holy Spirit warns us thru the Prophets, Disciples, Apostles and The Holy Ghost as our Witness within if He so be received and believed. Jesus sent Him as a Gift for us. So we would not be deceived also, and now many (as in old days) many use these ‘feelings, dreams, visions, Angels bringing messages’…as a profitable prosperity message also.
    So if you don’t know the Truth, by all means find a Church that the Pastor’s heart is after God and follow His Word (The Word of God…read it over and over and over as your life depends on it for it does!…prayer, fasting, seeking God and His righteousness ..not the world…

  7. I’ve never read so much nonsense regarding LDS (church) which it isn’t. I suppose it’s a lot of bs pumped in by the liberals(Dems) to scare the folks who still think mormons have multiple wives and so on…
    Truth is that LDS are nice folks mislead by satan. They believe a lie that started with a gullible teenager back in the early 1800’s and some slick quick thinking masons got in on the act.
    Don’t believe me? Check out the mason rituals and ask an ex- mormon to
    describe a temple ceremony.
    I’ve been there.
    Praise God I was excommunicated at my request.
    Any Mormon reading this, “You are in a heretical, damning sect. Get out now while you can, if you can. If you choose to believe a lie much longer – – – – well, time’s running out. It’s decision time!
