The Cost Of Contending

Jan Markell
   Jan has been in ministry since 1977 focusing on news from a biblical perspective.  She has written eight books and writes for many periodicals and Web sites.

The Cost of Contending
What has happened in the last 20 years is like the frog in the kettle. Wolves in sheep's clothing have slowly crept into the church. Bad theology worsened but little by little. Because it didn't happen overnight, many did not notice. Soon, they adjusted to the "new ways of doing church," be it "seeker-sensitive," Emergent, etc.

Church leaders "widened the door." In other words, they furthered the issue with weak preaching and targeting the unsaved rather than feeding true believers eager to grow.

Church members began to speak up but what happened? I have heard of the many who were lectured, asked to leave, called troublemakers and divisive. Unity has become all-important. But how can true believers be united around false or weak preaching and teaching? Solid Christians are being told that they must be tolerant for the sake of unity.

Yes, the Bible told us a day was coming when people would not give heed to sound doctrine (II Timothy 2:3, 4). People would want their ears tickled. New ways of doing church today do just that. But following the biblical example, Paul still told Timothy to "preach the Word," and not "tickle the ears."

Get The People Ready

Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
Isaiah 43:8

My holy people; times and seasons are in the hands of those who know Me and who receive My wisdom. It is time to upgrade the seeing and a season of improved hearing for those in My Body.

Call forth sight and hearing, that My Body may be healed and that My Body may be whole. For there are many sick, blind and deaf that need to receive from Me.

Decree the release of My anointings in this hour, that the Body may be able to know, see and hear Me. Much attention is upon worship and that is good, but there is a pressing need for My holy people to be healed and to walk in My purpose for them.

It is time to gather together, intercede for those in your jurisdiction, and to minister My anointing to My Body.

The army is coming forth very soon. My holy people will become a great and mighty army that will sweep workplaces, homes, cities and nations for My glory. I have released the wisdom to know the wiles of the enemy and My Heart to know how to take what the enemy has held captive for centuries.

My holy people, get your lives in order. Gather together under My banner. Gather together in My Name. Gather together for My purpose and in My power. For you shall be beautiful in this season. Knowing My Heart. Seeing My Purpose. Performing My Will. Marching step by step to the beat of My Heart. You will be blessed in cities and in nations.

You are My feet and My enemies will be put under you. You will rest upon the enemies that have usurped My authority for centuries. These enemies will scatter and these enemies will no longer spread their influence. For My House will be lifted high above and My will shall be performed in the earth by My holy people.

Get ready. Get set. Go!

Congressional PRESS Release

Congressional Press Release, Republican Party Committee (RPC), U.S. Congress, Clinton-Approved Iranian Arms Transfers Help Turn Bosnia into Militant Islamic Base, Washington DC, 16 January 1997, available on the website of the Centre of Research on Globalisation (CRG) at The original document is on the website of the U.S. Senate Republican Party Committee (Senator Larry Craig), at;  see also Washington Post,

Complicity of the Clinton Administration


"In other words, the Republican Party Committee report confirms unequivocally the complicity of the Clinton Administration with several Islamic fundamentalist organisations including Al Qaeda.

The Republicans wanted at the time to undermine the Clinton Administration. However, at a time when the entire country had its eyes riveted on the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the Republicans no doubt chose not to trigger an untimely "Iran-Bosniagate" affair, which might have unduly diverted public attention away from the Lewinsky scandal. The Republicans wanted to impeach Bill Clinton "for having lied to the American People" regarding his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. On the more substantive "foreign policy lies" regarding drug running and covert operations in the Balkans, Democrats and Republicans agreed in unison, no doubt pressured by the Pentagon and the CIA not to "spill the beans".

Daily Rules From God

1. Wake Up!!... Decide to have a good day. "Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up!!... The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart." I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!!!... Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. "He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3

. Stand Up!!... For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.. "Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up!!... To the Lord.
"I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me."

Reach Up!!... For something higher. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him, And He will direct your path."
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up!!... Your Prayers.
"Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING."

Philippians 4:6

And remember:

God answers Knee-Mail.

Come Into The Cloud

While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
Luke 9:34 

My holy people; prepare yourselves for more and more of My Presence. For as I came close to tell how important it was to hear My Son, so I tell you now of the great importance of hearing what the Spirit has to say in these days. Time is advancing and so are My seasons for you, My holy people. Your very lives depend upon hearing what the Holy Spirit has to say to you.

Some would try to advance in the things of My Kingdom without hearing. This is foolish and dangerous. For I sent the Holy Spirit to you so you could know how to truly follow in the Way. Without hearing what is upon My Heart, it is impossible to do My will.

Why is it that I sent you the Holy Spirit immediately after Jesus came to be with Me and not the complete Bible? Could it be that I sent what was most important first? It took nearly 3 centuries before the Church identified the complete collection of the books of the Bible. I gave the Holy Spirit so My holy people could recognize the Truth, regardless of what was yet written down. Nothing has changed.

You see, many walk in darkness today. Even though they have the Bible, they walk in darkness because they do not hear what I am saying in the words of the Book. I am Spirit and those that desire to worship Me, must worship Me in spirit and in truth. I sent the Holy Spirit so you could recognize the Truth. Without the Holy Spirit at work in your life, you have no life.

When a person is born again, they become alive in their spirit. They experiece spiritual birth. I send the Holy Spirit to give spiritual life, spiritual ears, spiritual discernment, spiritual living. Ask yourself … am I alive? Do I hear what the Spirit is saying? Do I know how to really follow Jesus? Do you?

There are many birth defects in My Church. Many that have said words, said prayers, but are not alive in the Spirit. Ask yourself; am I alive in the Spirit?

There are also many that have lost their first love, that have put their spiritual life on the shelf and forsaken true life for a kind of rules and regulation living. No longer desiring true life, they do not allow Me to lead their life. Never being full of the Spirit, never desiring the deep things that I offer, these fall into a spiritual stupor that can cause them to camp out in the wilderness. Ask yourself; am I living in the wilderness?

Still, there are those, My holy people, that have been born of the Spirit and walk in the Spirit and are led by the Spirit and are moving on with Me in ever increasing life, abundant life. Pressing on to make advances in My Kingdom. Pressing forward to drive out enemies and to bring every thought unto the obedience of Christ. These are truly My holy people. My called out ones that possess strength not of their own, but strength found in the Holy Spirit.

Which group do you belong? There is coming a time very soon for many of you, when hearing what the Spirit has to say to you will make the difference between life and death. Intimacy is not just a nice thing to have, but it is what I gave to My Church so they can really follow Me. In good times, in bad times, when rich or when in want, giving hope to the downcast and new life to the broken. I AM with those that are filled with My Spirit and walk after Me.

Seek My Face. Draw near, come into the cloud of My Presence. Do not fear, but take hope for it is in My Presence that true life awaits. Call upon My Name in the day of decision. I will lead you to new life, even a new way of living. I love you and did everything that was necessary to cause these things to happen for you. You just need to believe and receive from the storehouse of My blessing for you. For many, it is time to come home for the first time.

Come to Me

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
2 Corinthians 6:18

My holy people; where is your agreement? Is your mind made up to follow Me or do you also try to follow other things? Is your determination to follow Me in the matters of work, of family and of moral behavior? Are you constantly listening for My Heart, so you know what way to go?

Many of you have made agreements with the world in certain areas of your life. You have made compromise to following Me. I tell you, it is time to come out of agreement with the world and to come into agreement with Me.

What are the benefits of doing this? I will be your Father. You will be My sons and daughters. You will be My own and I will be yours. Many wonder where they can find intimacy. I tell you this; many are not sons and daughters, therefore they have nothing to find. Nothing at all.

Come out of agreement with the world. Come out of agreement with Babylon. Come out of agreement with your own will and your own ways. Come to Me, My holy people. Come to Me. There, and only there, you will find rest.

10 Steps To Understanding Liberal Thinking

The liberal brain does not collect and process information in a logical,orderly, reasonable, and objective manner. Rather, liberal thinking is dominated by an obsession with power, and use of that power to preserve and or advance elitist advantages.

This distorted perspective makes it very difficult to understand exactly how liberals think without earning an advanced degree in Abnormal Psychology.

Nonetheless, the following non-technical summary should be useful to lay people.

How liberals think on 10 major issues of the day:

1. The U.S. Constitution Is Unconstitutional
According to liberal dogma, the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights are unconstitutional because all were crafted by an exclusive conclave of white male Christians.

Women, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians, gays, lesbians, transsexuals, the handicapped, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and the blind were all under represented, if at all.

Because of this devastating lack of diversity, the Constitution must be regarded as a “living document,” subject to change in accordance with ever changing demographics and contemporary values.

2. Free Speech
Freedom of speech must never be quashed, except for criticism directed at minorities and sensitive constituencies of the Democrat party.

Burning Old Glory is protected free speech, whereas expressions of conservative values by people like Rush Limbaugh andMichael Savage are unacceptable “hate speech,” which must be subjected to “fairness” censoring and termination by the federal government.

3. Abortion, the Death Penalty and Assisted Suicide

On issues of life and death, liberals are especially vulnerable to tripping on their own hypocritical double talk.


A woman’s right to abort the life of an innocent child is inalienable; whereas execution of a convicted killer is cruel, unusual & barbaric.

Starving a helpless victim like Terri Schaivo to death is acceptable; but using lethal injection to end the life of a brutal killer is not.

4. Religion

Religious faith and belief in God are outdated pagan concepts, which do more harm than good. Sophisticated citizens can rely on the Democrat party for support from cradle to grave, obviating the need to rely on beliefs and rituals long since debunked.

Symbols of Christianity such as the Ten Commandments, the Cross, Christmas trees, nativity scenes, and the like must be hidden from public view so as to offend no one.

Publicly wishing a friend or family member “Merry Christmas” is clearly an act of civil disobedience and unconstitutional.

While Christianity is to be suppressed at all costs, Islam must be openly promoted in the name of religious awareness, sensitivity and tolerance.

The separation of state and government applies fully when dealing with Christianity or Judaism, but is irrelevant with regard to Islam and all other religions.

Delivery of Christmas cards and gifts by the United States Postal Service is an unconstitutional violation of state-religion separation and must end immediately.

5. Taxes
Leveling the playing field between haves and have-nots is the most important function of government, even more critical than national security.

To support that objective, no government role is more essential than levying and collecting taxes, otherwise known as redistribution of wealth.

Tax cuts are wrong when returned to people who actually paid taxes, but are perfectly fine when sent to those who paid none.

Although most liberals deny that Jesus even lived, many use the quote in Matthew 22:21, “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s...” to justify higher taxes.

Paying taxes is the “Christian Conservative” thing to do!

6. Marriage and Same-Sex Issues
The traditional American family consisting of one man and one woman is just one of several possible arrangements, all of which are equally moral and acceptable.

Marriage is no longer necessary to sanctify man-woman relationships.

Although the institution of marriage is no longer vital to heterosexual partners, it is absolutely essential that same-sex couples be allowed to marry. To deny them that basic right is discriminatory, immoral, unfair, and clearly unconstitutional.

7 Racism, Diversity and Affirmative Action

Liberals believe that discrimination based on race or gender is wrong. Except when waged against Caucasian men, in which case it is mandated by law and called Affirmative Action.

“Our Diversity Is our Greatest Strength” is the liberal pledge of allegiance to socialism.

Enforcing U.S. borders and immigration laws, including deportation of illegal aliens, is wrong because it targets Hispanics, obviously based on racial profiling.

Those who support English as the official language of America are racists. But those who prefer Spanish and other foreign languages over English are not because of the inherent value of diversity.

Conservatives who seek to preserve American language and culture are bigoted hate mongers, whereas new immigrants, including illegal aliens, must be allowed to maintain and celebrate their cultural heritage at all costs, even if it interferes with assimilation into mainstream America.

8. Preserving the American Dream for Working Class Americans
According to liberal propaganda, they are the only hope for American families, notwithstanding the fact that Democrats support the influx of millions of
illegal aliens who work for lower wages and without benefits, and drive down the standard of living for working families.

Skyrocketing gasoline prices devastate working American families, but protecting Alaskan wild life is a greater priority.

Businesses are oppressive institutions that must not be allowed to become too large and powerful. By contrast, government creates wealth & happiness and should be expanded whenever possible.

Outsourcing of American jobs to foreign nations is driven by immoral corporate greed.

By contrast, open borders and amnesty are acceptable because most illegal aliens are future Democrats.

Huge profits are obscene and un-American, except when enjoyed by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Teddy Kennedy, and other liberals.

9. Global Warming, the Environment, and Energy Independence
According to liberal technocrats like Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, and Dennis Kucinich, global warming is a greater threat to the health and well being of humanity than the war on terror.

Some liberal extremists even think that the colors of the American flag should be changed to green, white, and blue so as to reflect the importance of the environment to our nation, while simultaneously deleting the color red, which symbolizes blood shed in illegal wars waged by Bushes 41 and 43.

10. Use of Military Force, Invading Foreign Nations
Military force must never be used, except when needed to advance interests not vital to the United States, or to obscure a Democrat president’s sexual misconduct in the Oval Office.

Invading a foreign nation is wrong, except when aliens from Mexico invade America.

Understanding liberal thinking is probably more trouble than it is worth. The more prudent action would be to take all necessary steps to assure that liberals are not elected or reelected to political office.

Pursue Me

Pursue Me

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.
James 4:8
My holy people; is it so complicated that you do not understand? Is your understanding so darkened that you cannot see? All that I am after in your life is that you pursue Me. I desire to be the greatest love of your life. I desire to have the place of preeminence in your life.

Many are crying out to Me at this time. Mostly about personal needs. Few stand before Me to know My Heart and My ways. This life you are living is all about knowing My Heart and following My Heart. Then you will not be so drawn away by the world and the trappings that it has to offer.

You have all the grace you need to pursue Me. Are you going to pursue Me or pursue what I have to offer? I am looking to purify hearts and motives that are willing to put Me above all.

Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Allow Me to refresh your love for Me.

"The joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10.


It's not a happy feeling you're supposed to have now and then when things are going well. It's much more than that.

Joy is one of the most powerful spiritual forces in the world.

Look again at Nehemiah 8:10 and I'll show you why.
If you were to diagram that scripture and remove the phrase, "of the Lord,"
-you would find what it's truly saying is this:

Joy is strength!
The two are interchangeable.

That's what makes joy so crucial.
You can't live a life of faith without being strong in the Lord--
And when God wants to make you strong, joy is what He uses to do the job!

Joy is not just a state of mind.
It is not a fleeting emotion.

Joy is a very real force!
And the devil doesn't have anything that can stand up against it.

Just as fear has to yield to faith-
- discouragement has to yield to joy.

Since joy is one of the fruit of the Holy Spirit-
- you already have it residing within you.
But you must develop it, confess it, and live by it if you want to enjoy its power.

Whatever circumstances you are facing today, you can be full of joy.
You can be strong in the Lord.
You can draw on the supply of the Holy Spirit within you and come out on top.

The Truth War

The truth war is, indeed, a war. Warfare is serious. It requires diligence. It requires paying a price. It will cost you. You may not be popular.  And many of today’s believers have no taste for conflict and contention. Enemies of the truth are relentless. Casualties abound.

So, will you stand for truth, or go the way of many today--including some evangelical leaders--and opt for compromise?


Since you are called for such a time as this, you are called to stand for truth in today’s deceptive world and church.  Please report for duty.

Hero John Gebhardt

Wouldn't it be fitting if this went completely around the world!..... 
Compassion Chief

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed.  The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her.  She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.

He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.

This, my friends, is worth sharing.  Go for it!!
 You'll never see things like this in the news.  Please keep this going.  Nothing will happen if you don't, but the American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we're doing over there is making a difference.  Even if it is just one little girl at a time.

Volcanoes Cause Global Warming

Volcanoes Believed To Be Cause of Glacier Melt; Not Global Warming

By Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media
Jan 21, 2008 - 12:01:10 AM



New research of a previously unknown underwater volcano first discovered in 2004 off the coast of Antarctica has just been released. The presence of a volcano was first suggested in sonar studies during the January 2004 research expedition. The new study just released says: "This is the first time we have seen a volcano beneath the ice sheet punch a hole through the ice sheet."

The finding helps explain mariners' historical reports of discolored water in the area. Material from underwater volcanoes is known to cause discoloration in water over them.

Published this Sunday (Jan. 2008) in the journal Nature Geoscience, researchers Hugh Corr and David Vaughan of the British Antarctic Survey, report the identification of a layer of volcanic ash and glass shards frozen within an ice sheet in western Antarctica. Vaughan states: "This is the first time we have seen a volcano beneath the ice sheet punch a hole through the ice sheet."

The eruption occurred close to the massive Pine Island Glacier, an area where movement of glacial ice towards the sea has been accelerating alarmingly in recent decades. Co-researcher Hugh Corr states: "We believe this was the biggest eruption in Antarctica during the last 10,000 years. It blew a substantial hole in the icesheet and generated a plume of ash and gas that rose around 12 kms (eight miles) into the air."

Volcanic heat could still be melting ice to water and contributing to thinning and speeding up of the Pine Island glacier, which passes nearby. Vaughan suggests the heat from volcanoes is the cause of glacier melt. This report adds another damaging blow to the Al Gore regime.

The earlier 2004 research team led by Eugene Domack of Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., used a bottom-scanning video recorder, rock dredges and temperature probes to survey the sides and crest of the submarine peak.

While large areas were colonized by submarine life, none was found on dark rock around the volcano itself, indicating that lava had flowed fairly recently. In addition, dredges recovered abundant fresh basalt, a volcanic rock. It normally would be rapidly acted upon and transformed by seawater.

Highly sensitive temperature probes moving continuously across the bottom of the volcano showed signs of geothermal heating of seawater, according to the agency.

Where Are The Men Of God?

Where Are All the Men of God Today?

Where are the men of God that are willing to contend for the once for all delivered to the saints faith?

Where are the men of God who are willing to instruct in sound doctrine and refute those who contradict?

Where are the men of God who won't tolerate a scatological mouth in the pulpit and will guard the integrity of the sacred desk?

Where are the men of God who will preach not themselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord?

Where are the men of God who are biblically discerning, armed with the sword of the Spirit, and in the power of the Spirit will abandon themselves to nothing save Christ and Him crucified?

Where are the men of God who will say no to the world and yes to Christ - leaving behind career, fame, and the promise of fortune for the sake of the gospel?

Where are the men of God today who consider it more a joy to bear the reproaches and insults of men for the glory of Christ, then seek after the praise of men for the glory of themselves?

Where are the men of God who love God more than they fear man?

Where are these kind of men of God today?

Martin Luther said it best:

"I would rather preach the truth with too great a severity,
than to ever once act the hypocrite and conceal the truth!"

May the Lord give us men like that once again; men who will leave behind the velvet covered sword of today's evangelical, postmodern world and take up without shame, the sword of the Spirit wielding its truths with love, courage and biblical resolve.

"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." -2 Timothy 4:1-5

Tell Them Of Me

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
Luke 12:8
My holy people; your mouth reveals what is truly in your heart. Much of My Church struggles with how to be a witness to those around them. There can be only one response from My holy people. In your day to day living; at work, at home, amongst friends and acquaintances … witness to them of Me.

Tell them what I am doing. Tell them what I have done. Tell them what I can do. For many need to know these things. Many need to hear the gospel preached to them from a friend at work. Some may only have the opportunity to hear from those at work.

Do not consider yourself, but consider others as you share Me with them. It is in this way that you can serve Me daily.

Some may be starting a new job today. Do not delay; let them know who you serve. Do not wait until later to draw the line in the sand, demonstrating your love for Me and for those around you.

I have promised to empower your witness. Have you received the promise of the Father? You must be empowered, you must be filled to overflowing, with the Holy Spirit in order to have this empowered witness. If you have not received this, then by all means seek Me for it. For I have promised to be with you, in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. I will empower those that look to Me and My promises.

There is a world that has gone topsy turvy around you. You have the answer. You know Someone who can make sense of it all for people. Tell them of Me.

The Military "Hand" Gesture

Interesting...The Military "hand" gesture.


The Coming End Of Democracy?

I thought this piece really put it all into perspective and sums it all up. 
See Actuarial Profession - Bruce Porteous. Profile Bruce Porteous is currently Head of Financial and Operational Risk with Standard Life Bank. His main current responsibilities include: asset and liability management, operational risk management, enterprise wide risk, economic capital and Basel 2.
So, for my family and friends, and the rest of the Nation (WHO NEEDS TO WAKEUP!), this is a "little" Heads Up!
Bruce Porteous

The world is about the experience dramatic political, environmental and
economic changes, which will end with a different world order than what
we are familiar with today. It will bring an end to western-style democracy.

Democracy as we know it is ill equipped to bring about the economic
reforms to rescue mankind from destruction of the environment or to
enforce the lifestyle changes necessary for the planets survival. Yet as
the planet heads down the road towards destruction, it appears our
leaders are unable to agree how to save the environment. For most to
bring about the economic changes to save the planet would be political
suicide with a democratic government.

The failure of the recent Bali talk-feast to come to any specific
targets in cutting greenhouse gas emissions highlights the problem when
nations put their own domestic political interests before those of the
global community is just another example of the failure of governments
to reach agreement.

The necessary changes can only come be made under an autocratic
government that has global authority to implement the reforms needed to
be made to save mankind from destroying the ability of the planet to
sustain life. However these changes will require the enforcement of
limitations on individual freedom and the way economies are managed.

This new global government will considerable curtail individual freedom
to travel, how we produce and consume goods and services in the way the
western world does today, and the way we manage our economies. The
curtailing of individual freedoms can only be achieved where political
leaders are not restrained by democracy, where voters have the right not
to support the tough decisions needed to be made.

The world’s nations will have to submit much of their national
sovereignty to this new international leader, giving him the authority
to bring about environmental and economic changes for managing the
global economy. The changes will need to be enforced globally – there is
no use having some nations not complying with environmental standards to
allow them to be more competitive in the market place through breaking
the rules. The coming global leader will have the authority to control
all trade, to protect further abuses of the environment, which has
contributed towards global warming.

We are already seeing in Europe how nations can co-operate to enforce
common environmental standards and laws. The EU nations have now reached
agreement on selecting a single President to provide leadership for
Europe. This same government model could be extended outside Europe.

The coming economic collapse of the English speaking world will create a
political and economic vacuum that will be filled by other nations. The
EU will replace the Anglo-Saxon nations as the main global power. The
collapse of the Anglo-Saxon nations will also free up the availability
of some of the planet’s natural resources, so long squandered by the
English speaking world.

Meanwhile the Anglo-Saxon nation’s debt-ridden economies are unraveling,
as their creditor nations become reluctant to advance further funds for
their consummation of natural resources that most of the rest of
humanity is denied. The collapse of the English-speaking economies will
allow these resources to be used by other nations to enable them to
increase the wealth of their people.

Recent attempts by the USA to prop up its failing economy by printing
money and other economic stimulus will only lead to further debasement
of its currency and inflation. The ill-conceived invasion of Iraq and
the inability to achieve victory in Afghanistan, have further weaken the
economies of America and Britain, contributing towards their demise.

The most significant factor in the shift of global power will be
replacing the $US with the Euro as the world’s reserve currency. The
Eurozone will become the centre of gravity for international commence,
extending its influence over world trade and commence. The collapse of
the US dollar will also severely affect other currencies, especially in
Asia, who will turn to the Eurozone for support. The Euro will become
accepted as the only global currency, giving the EU universal political
and economic power.

Those nations that make up the Eurozone will come under the leadership
of a single President, as has recently been agreed upon by the majority
of the member states of the EU. This leader will have the authority to
dictate how global commerce will be conducted – in order to protect the
global environment. This coming leader is referred to as the Beast in
the Book of Revelation in the Bible, and often prophesied by Christian
groups teaching end-time prophecies. Its leader will have the support of
the Catholic Church, and will be looked upon as some-one who is able to
save mankind from destruction, yet bringing about a period of prosperity
for the world, with the exception of the Anglo-Saxon nations, which will
sink into national bankruptcy and total poverty.

It will not be possible to bring about the changes to save the planet
through democratic governments. The economic reforms required to be made
only with the end of democracy. These changes can only be achieved
through an autocratic leader who has the authority to impose the
necessary reforms for the planet’s survival. Other nations around the
world will accept the authority of this leader in order to have access
to the Euro to conduct commence.

This same leader will have the authority to subject the Anglo-Saxon
nations to his control, subjecting them to rigid regulations on how they
conduct commerce. The people of these nations will have to accept his
authority, otherwise be denied the right to earn a living or trade.
Their economies will be in total collapse. It will be time of
persecution and great hardship for the English speaking people,
requiring them to accept the authority of this new EU leader.

What we are now seeing unfold is the first stages of the collapse of the
Anglo-Saxon nations that have dominated the world for the last 200 years
– these nation’s economies will collapse and their people will sink into
abject poverty and slavery. It will be a time of unprecedented hardship
for the people of the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand and Australia. It
will result in many dying from famine and disease – many will be taken
into slavery. It will be a time of great tribulation.

Prepare For The Unexpected

Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace.  Acts 18:9

My holy people; be prepared for the unexpected. For I will not only speak while you are seeking Me, but I will seek out those who are willing to move forward in the things of My Kingdom. I am establishing My Kingdom through those who are willing to move with Me. Seek Me. Answer Me. Follow Me. These are attributes found in the heart of those who will do as I desire in building My Kingdom.

Be on the look out for more revelatory dreams, visions and visitations to come about. I desire to impart My Heart to those willing to listen. I will speak, showing you the deep desires of My Heart, which will guide you day by day. At this time I am transforming hearts from desiring their own way, to Mine. Knowing, expressing and following My Heart will be critical in the season you are now in.

No matter how negative your circumstances appear, continually look to Me for guidance. I will not leave you without hope and help. I will be there with you, moment by moment, giving you directions and helping to establish the work of your hands in a world gone topsy-turvey.

Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be followers of Me day by day.


Dear Mr. Malcolm Berko

Gotta love this guy!,5_3_WA15_BERKO_S1.article
-January 15, 2008-

Dear Mr. Berko: Two of my friends wrote to ask for help in their retirement plan selections. They wrote their letter to you in our native Spanish two times; you answered that you only answer letters that are written in English. I know you speak our language because when you had your radio show I remember two times you held conversations in Spanish with some listeners. When a caller asked why you speak Spanish, you told them that your grandfather lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Your refusal to answer those letters is an insult to your grandfather's heritage. You should be proud of your past heritage. I also want to tell you that your refusal to answer those letters is discrimination against my people who cannot speak English. You should apologize to all of us for your insensitivity. And because of your insult to my friends, I pledged never to read your column again. I know you won't have the courage to print my letter.

-- T.M., Boca Raton, Fla.

Dear T.M.: Here is your letter, but I omitted your terribly frosty comments, which are not suitable for family newspapers.

I receive four or five letters in Spanish each year and my response is always the same: "Write in English if you want an answer." And yes, my grandfather lived in Argentina (big deal), but I'm proud of my heritage, which is 100 percent American. However, my friend, the past is yesterday's box score and the future is where I intend to live the rest of my life.

You have a lot of cheek demanding an apology from me. Rather, your friends should apologize to several hundred million Americans for snubbing our language. Living under our flag, wrapped in your heritage, while thumbing your collective noses at assimilation, plainly demonstrates your contempt for us. If your country is so wonderful, if your culture is so comforting, why did you leave?

Your letter suggests that you are the insensitive person, not me. Your friends don't speak English and most Americans feel that it's presumptuous of them to work and live here and demand that we speak Spanish. As my daughter would say, "That really takes the cupcake!" But I doubt that you get my drift.

Millions of immigrants from Poland, Germany, Italy, Russia, Romania, Hungary came to the U.S. They didn't demand green cards or welfare assistance. They assimilated; they learned English and became U.S. citizens. But the last census suggests that 74 percent of South Florida's Hispanics are not U.S. citizens. What unmitigated gall! It takes a lot of chutzpah for aliens to live here and expect us to speak their tongue. I don't know of any other ethnic group that demands this from the citizens of the host country.

Now some of you folks are beginning to promote Hispanic ascendancy, which concerns all Americans. Several months ago professor Eduardo Gamarra from Florida International University in Miami told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel that the presidential debates must be held in Spanish so Hispanic voters can understand the issues. I suppose the next step is to "Spanishize" our legal system, then our Constitution. This is the epitome of hubris!

I exchanged some testy e-mails with professor Gamarra who plans to share them with his FIU class on (get this) "comparative genocide." How charming!

However, to demonstrate good will and good intentions, I'll answer the mutual fund selection questions asked by your friends who must make new choices for their 401(k) plans.

Each should invest 35 percent to their portfolio in Fidelity's Convertible Securities Fund, which, during the past 20 years has a 13 percent average annual total return. Then invest 35 percent in Fidelity's Balanced Fund, which has a 10.5 percent average annual return over the past 20 years. Lastly, invest the remaining 30 percent in the Fidelity International Discovery Fund that has a 9.6 percent average annual total return since 1987. The other fund choices aren't worth a bucket of night soil. But the three Fidelity Funds I recommended should outperform the market in most years and provide your friends with a good retirement nest egg 20 years hence when they hang up their work boots.

Most corporations with 401(k) plans employ advisers to help their employees with investment questions. Perhaps your friends should get a second opinion.

Address your financial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O. Box 1416, Boca Raton, FL 33429 or e-mail him at

Textbook: Islamic 'jihad'

Textbook: Islamic 'jihad' means doing good works
Also includes Muslims fighting 'to protect themselves from harm'

Sacramento's students are being taught "jihad" is an effort to convince "others to take up worthy causes."

An Islamic "jihad" is an effort by Muslims to convince "others to take up worthy causes, such as funding medical research," according to a textbook that is being used for junior high age students in California and other states. And even at its most violent, "jihad" simply is Muslims fighting "to protect themselves from those who would do them harm," says the "History Alive! The Medieval World and Beyond" book published by Teachers' Curriculum Institute. But a parent whose child has been handed the text in a Sacramento district is accusing the publisher of a pro-Muslim bias to the point that Islamic theology has been incorporated into the public school teachings.The upsetting part is not only do they go into the history (which would be acceptable) but also the teaching of Islam.  This book does not really go into Christianity or the teachings of Christ, nor does it address religious doctrine elsewhere to the degree it does Islam.

Follow Me In The Supernatural

Follow Me in the Supernatural

And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
Acts 12:8 

My holy people; supernatural needs demand supernatural provision. As the storms and trials of life increase to the point that you see no possible way of escape, look to Me to provide a way out, no matter what.

I am leading many to trust Me for miracles of all sorts in this season of life. I will send angels with orders of deliverance for some. To others I will make a way in the wilderness just as I did for the Israelites. The key to all of this is to follow Me. Do not look for a pattern to follow or for My supernatural provision to come in the same way twice. Look to the One who sends an answer from heaven to earth, not to the particular messengers or methods.

I am doing a new thing in the earth. Do you know it? Do you realize that all that occurred in the past is in the past? Do not look to the past, but look to what is ahead, in Me. I have things for you to do in the Kingdom. Step forward, one step at a time and I will be with you. Be confident in Me and My ability to be your provision. Follow My voice, follow My Word, follow Me. For I am pouring out miracles to those who will trust Me to be all that I have promised.

Seek first My Kingdom and to see My Heart demonstrated to the lost, the hurting, the poor and the broken. Allow My Heart cry to become your own, as you draw near to Me. Be and become an accurate expression of Christ in the earth.

When Unclothed Is Unfitting

When Unclothed Is Unfitting: Thoughts on Selling with Sex

Jonathan Edwards once said that godly people can, as it were, smell the depravity of an act before they can explain why it evil. There is a spiritual sense that something is amiss. It does not fit in a world permeated with God.

Ephesians 5:3 says that some things "are not fitting" among saints." "Fitting-ness" is not always easy to justify with arguments. You discern it before you can defend it. That's good, because we have to make hundreds of choices every day with no time for extended reflection.

But from time to time we need to pause and give rational, biblical expression why something is not fitting. Some years ago I came to that point when, week after week, a local newspaper put scantily clad women on the second page of Section A in order to sell underclothes. I wrote a letter to the paper with nine reasons why they should stop using this kind of advertising.

Perhaps my reflections will help you deal with the hundreds of abuses of God's good gift of sexuality in our culture. Here is what I wrote.

As a 14-year subscriber and reader of the [name of paper omitted], I am writing to express the persuasion that your sexually explicit ads that often turn up in Section A are increasingly offensive and socially irresponsible. I mean that the effectiveness of catching people's attention by picturing a woman in her underclothes does not justify the ads.. The detrimental effects of such mercenary misuse of the female body are not insignificant. The harm I have in mind is described in the following nine persuasions.

1. This woman could not go out in public dressed like that without being shamed or being mentally aberrant. Yet you thrust her out, even in front of those of us who feel shame for her.

2. This portrayal of a woman sitting in her underclothes at a table with a cup of tea disposes men to think of women not as persons but mainly in terms of their bodies. It stimulates young boys to dwell on unclothed women's bodies and thus lames their ability to deal with women as dignified persons. I have four sons.

3. The ad stimulates sexual desire which in thousands of men has no legitimate or wholesome outlet through marriage. In other words, it feeds a corporate, community lust that bears no good fruit outside marriage, but in fact many ills.

4. The ad makes sensibilities callous so that fewer and fewer offenses against good taste feel unacceptable, which spells the collapse of precious and delicate aspects of personhood and relationships.

5. The ad makes thousands of women subconsciously measure their attractiveness and worth by the standard of rarefied, unrealistic models, leading to an unhealthy and discouraging preoccupation with outward looks.

6. The ad feeds the prurient fantasies of ordinary men, lodging a sexual image in their minds for the day which can rob them of the ability to think about things greater and nobler than skin.

7. The ad condones the proclivity of males to mentally unclothe women by reminding them what they would see if they did, and by suggesting that there are women who want to be publicly unclothed in this way. This reminder and this suggestion support habits and stereotypes that weaken personal virtue and jeopardize decorous relationships.

8. The ad encourages young girls to put excessive focus on their bodies and how they will be looked at, adding to the epidemic of depression and eating disorders.

9. The ad contributes to dissatisfaction in men whose wives can't produce that body and thus adds to the instability of marriages and homes.

I realize that the bottom line is big bucks for page two, and lots of attention for [name of department store omitted]. But please know that at least one assessment of your standards of fitness for print is that it is part of a tragic loss of modesty and decency that may, for now, feel like mature liberation, but in generations to come will reap a whirlwind of misery for all of us.

We Are Shepherds Watching

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luke 2:8
My holy people; still, even now, there are indeed shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. Not like in the Christmas story, but in the throws of persecution, trial, famine, and every sort of onslaught of evil and sin. I have shepherds, that I have appointed, to watch in prayer, in fastings, in intercessions and in celebration. I have broken the heart of the few, that the nations may be discipled. These broken-hearted ones will penetrate the nations as no other generation has done before. They have taken My commission seriously and they have believed My Word.

Will you take territory for Me, or will you stand at the sidelines and simply watch? That question should be asked of every one of My holy people. That question should burn in your hearts as you lay down at night. That question should challenge you as you rise from your bed in the mornings. That question should drive you to your knees to receive a fresh infilling of My Spirit. I have prepared good works for all of My holy people to walk in. Will you make your heart ready to do what is prepared for you?

Walk through every open door. Pray like never before. Believe My Word like never before. Walk in My Spirit like never before. Then you will see a move of God like never before. You are My Body in the earth. Live and move and have your being in Me … and see My promises made real in your generation. I have called you to disciple nations. Will you?

Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be and become an accurate expression of Christ in the earth.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

I am outraged and you should be also. President Bush is in Saudi Arabia. He has just agreed to sell the Saudis $20 billion worth of military equipment. This is the same country that refused to recognize Israel’s right to exist, the same country that will not allow one Jew to set foot on its soil.

I was completely outraged when I heard that Ehud Olmert, whom I have known for 26 years, stood next to President Bush and declared that he would work to fulfill the final status solution to the Road Map to Peace. In essence, this means the division of Jerusalem (with all Christian Holy Sites being under Islamic rule of law) and Judea and Samaria turned over to the Palestinians.

This is outrageous. These are terrorist organizations.

As this absurd ceremony was going on, they were singing; they had music playing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The only rainbow that I believe in is the rainbow at the time of Noah. God made the covenant that He would never again destroy the world with a flood.

God’s word says I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee. America must not touch prophecy. The nation of Israel was born by a royal land grant given by God Almighty. It was birthed before there was a United States or a United Nations. All nations were only pagan nations at that time.

Presently we have 119,000 who have signed the Save Jerusalem Petition.

Do you realize that the U.S. Government is shuttling around with almost a dozen Arab states that refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist and, in fact, fund terrorists to kill Jews? It’s outrageous!

Please, get one friend today to sign the Save Jerusalem Petition. This will double the number. Our ultimate goal is one million, but our goal right now is to reach 200,000.

Pray today that the Lord will help us with this andthat every Jerusalem Prayer Member will get one friend to respond in the next 24 hours.

There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that the State Department is going to push this through if we remain silent. If it happens, God’s hand of protection will be lifted from our country in a way that we couldn’t possibly have imagined. I will not allow that to happen. I will do everything in my power to resist that.

I’m asking for every Jerusalem Prayer Team Member to pray and ask just one friend today to sign the Petition.

If people do as the Prophet Daniel declared, the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits. This is a battle between light and darkness, a battle between politics and prophecy.

Thank you for responding today.

Save Jerusalem Campaign

A national Save Jerusalem Campaign has been launched in which more than 100,000 have signed an Internet petition in the last few weeks. The goal is for one million signers of the petition to present it to President Bush, whose plan to divide the City of David is the most aggressive of any US president.

You can add your name to the Presidential Petition by voting now.

Mike Huckabee Stands For Israel

An ordained Southern Baptist minister who has made his Christian faith a prominent feature of his campaign, Huckabee has been outspoken about Iran’s threat to Israel. “I condemn Iran’s irrational call for the destruction of Israel and its reckless defiance of the international community by its continued pursuit of nuclear weapons and other hostile actions,” he said before the recent Iowa caucus. ”I urge Iran to stop enriching uranium and accept monitoring by the IAEA, to recognize the right of Israel to exist, and to end its support of all terror groups, such as Hamas, Hizbullah, and Islamic Jihad.”
Huckabee’s position on Israel, as stated on his Web site, is uncompromising:
“I am a steadfast supporter of Israel, our staunch ally in the War on Terror, the only fully-functioning democracy in the Middle East, and our greatest friend in that region. The United States must remain true to its long-standing commitment to the Israeli people. As president, I will always ensure that Israel has access to the state-of-the-art weapons and technology she needs to defend herself from those who seek her annihilation.”
