Amy Grant & LGBTQ Spiritual Infection


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© December 23, 2022

On December 18 I posted, “A Sooooo Corrupt Society”. In the intro portions of that post I shared the sad state of corruption afflicting the U.S. Government and American Churches (sadly the full spectrum of Christianity in Roman Catholicism, Eastern Rite [Orthodox] and Protestantism). Looking at the Church aspect, Cultural Marxism is a devilish spiritual virus blinding Christians to the Word (essentially the Will) of God and Biblical Morality. Here’s a paragraph of note:

UNFORTUNATELY, the same corruption diluting the U.S. Constitution has also began to sway leadership in organized Christian Churches leading too many so-called Ministers of the Gospel to question the efficacy and validity of God’s very Word leading to such anti-God Marxism as Liberation Theology among Catholics and among Protestants the tenets of Critical Race Theory (HEREHEREHERE & HERE)  and Black Liberation Theology (HERE & HERE). Much of which cancels the Plan of Salvation in Christ and Biblical Morality leading only to forced acceptance of Humanist salvation and Humanist morality.

You might ask, “Why the rehash?”

I became a Christian in 1978. God knows I am not perfect and yet God also knows when I missed His Mark I strive to correct my path. In case you haven’t noticed, there are a lot of years between 1978 and 2022 (nearly 2023). I’ve had more course corrections than I’d like to share in a divided and “Sooooo Corrupt Society”. There are way too many “I’ll be the first to cast a stone” of condemnation than I wish to deal with.

It’s important for me to share my personal journey has hit the ditch a few times over the decades because I’m about to share a disappointment I have with a very public Christian figure I have admired as an inspiration in those so early years of my Born Again beginnings.

I have discovered on the WND news service that Contemporary Christian artist Amy Grant is allowing the performance of a same-sex wedding of her niece on the family farm.

I understand trying to find supportive bonds among family, but it is disappointing to view a person of Grant’s stature choosing to ignore Biblical Morality in the name of family or possibly worse, selecting an anti-God Secular Humanist moral relativism as the justification for validating LGBTQ perversion. Amy Grant is quoted using God’s love by twisting it mean acceptance of sin, or at least it appears that way to me (quoted from WND):

When Amy was interviewed by PrideSource.com, she said, “I know the religious community has not been very welcoming … but with God everybody is welcome. Everybody!”

On Proud Radio she said, “It’s so important to set a welcoming table … you’re loved. Gay. Straight. It doesn’t matter. … It doesn’t matter how we behave. It doesn’t matter how we’re wired.”

Amy says, “God simply wants us to love Him and love each other.”

Somewhere along Grant’s journey she forgot or unlearned God’s Love brought God incarnated as a human to the pay the price redeeming humanity from sin to restore the God-human relationship in Believing in the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus. God’s Love is Restoration NOT acceptance of God-separating sin.

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (Bold Emphasis Blog Editor’s) –John 3: 18-21 NKJV

Too often people quote John 3: 16 failing to read what follows.

The Old Testament penalty for the LGBTQ lifestyle is quite harsh and involves a death penalty. The Redemptive work of Jesus the Son of God allows for Repentance and Restoration blotting out the sin and the penalty for sin. Redemption makes the Believer a New Creation in Christ Jesus. Your human spirit – my human spirit – became newly created the old man (or old person to the pronoun addicts) died and the new man or person is now a new human spirit. Romans 6: 6-7; 2 Corinthians 5: 17 NKJV:

Romans

knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be [a]done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been [b]freed from sin.

new

a. Romans 6:6 rendered inoperative

b. Romans 6:7 cleared

2 Corinthians

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.  

In Christ we have a new human spirit residing in an unredeemed mortal body. It’s only by constantly inputting God’s Word (His Will) does our new creation spirit overcome the desires of our unredeemed bodies. In my case it was my measuring stick to answer why I strayed into a ditch off the straight and narrow. How does one get out of the ditch:

1 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. –1 John 1: 6-10 NKJV

My disappointment in Amy Grant is she has tossed decades of influential worship music to be blinded by the demonic virus that promotes acceptance of the ungodly and immoral LGBTQ lifestyle as if it is something God is okay with in the name of love. The problem is that LGBTQ love is NOT the God-kind of love in His Holy Word.

Below are two WND posts from December 20 and 21 reporting from a Biblical perspective on Amy Grant hosting her LGBTQ niece’s wedding on her farm.

Amy Grant to host gay wedding: Does this honor God?

Larry Tomczak: ‘One’s music can inspire millions; one’s example can mislead multitudes’

“Honor marriage and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband.” – Hebrews 13:14 MSG

[Author’s note (Tomczak): I attempted to give this article to Amy prior to publishing. She declined to read it, saying, “Even if I am misrepresented; even if I am in the wrong, God knows my heart.” Having reviewed the article first with five senior leaders, including Dr. Michael Brown and one of Amy’s original pastors, we pray and entrust this to God.]

Months ago, Joe Biden hosted a gathering with gay icon Elton John and 2,000 LGBTQ celebrants on the White House lawn. If I had been invited, I would’ve attended to evangelize just as I have at 20-plus gay pride events.

In situations like this, it’s extremely important to discern God’s will. If I were a new convert, knew there’d be nudity, drugs and revelry, struggled with same-sex attraction or if I was younger and prohibited by my parents, I wouldn’t go.

Apart from a strategic LGBTQ outreach, could I envision ever hosting a homosexual/lesbian event at my church or on my property? I wouldn’t do it.

A news story recently stated that Christian music legend Amy Grant was hosting a niece’s gay wedding at her farm. I believe she’s doing this sincerely as a goodwill gesture, but it’s generating understandable concern about its appropriateness and what it communicates. Having ministered with Amy in the past at “Jesus Festival” events, I know she is a loving person.

What Would Jesus Do?

Iconic Christian leader Charles Spurgeon cautioned, “Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It’s knowing the difference between right and almost right.”

The Bible directs us to “examine all things, hold fast to that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21) and exhibit maturity, demonstrated by “discerning between good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14).

God wants our “love to abound more and more with knowledge and discernment so that we may approve what is the best” (Philippians 1:9-10).

Amy said recently, “There’s many things I don’t understand about God.” Perhaps the beauty of His holiness with His love is one of them.

The Back Story

A young man openly shared his sad story of being abused and later “coming out” as a homosexual. On Proud Radio, he explained how a “counselor told him it didn’t matter how he got to being gay and that there wasn’t a glory spout to turn on to make him straight … so he left the church that didn’t accept his lifestyle and went out into the world to be gay. …’and to hear Amy say that I am welcome at God’s table as a gay man is so affirming.'”

The young man with his new gay identity now prefers to refer to God as a female. “I call God ‘She’ to fight the patriarchy.”

When Amy was interviewed by PrideSource.com, she said, “I know the religious community has not been very welcoming … but with God everybody is welcome. Everybody!”

On Proud Radio she said, “It’s so important to set a welcoming table … you’re loved. Gay. Straight. It doesn’t matter. … It doesn’t matter how we behave. It doesn’t matter how we’re wired.”

Amy says, “God simply wants us to love Him and love each other.”

The Basics – ABC

A reasonable question: “Is this another ‘crossover’ move, similar to when Amy crossed over from “Contemporary Christian Music” (CCM) to a more “pop culture” genre? Let’s examine the situation from a purely biblical worldview, resolving not to accommodate culture but align with sacred Scripture.

A. Affirm God’s Design

The entire Bible unambiguously defines God’s design for marriage to be one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5; Ephesians 5:31).

“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3–4).

B. Believe and Behave

A combination of charity and clarity is essential in communicating that a homosexual lifestyle is directly contradicting Scripture where there is not one verse that endorses it. God’s Word prohibits it plus conveys hope and transformation for those struggling in it (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-11). God’s help comes when those struggling admit their problem. A homosexual man asked Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “What do I do with my problem?” He helped him to freedom because “he admitted he had a problem.” Only then could he help him with a solution (see Bullseye Challenge, chapters 18-20).

Jesus Christ stated unequivocally, “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord and not do what I say?” (Luke 6.46). Loving God and obeying His Word are nonnegotiable. The Bible warns us of those who practice sinful homosexual/lesbian acts (Romans 1:25-28) and then “give hearty approval to those who practice them” (verse 32).

Jesus engaged compassionately with sinners but did not excuse sin (Samaritan woman, John 4:1-18, and the woman caught in adultery, John 8:1-11). He said, “Go and sin no more.” We’re called to do likewise, conveying acceptance of the person but not approving of his or her sin.

We affirm God’s unconditional acceptance (welcoming us into relationship when we “repent and believe”), but there is no unconditional approval of behavior contrary to what God prohibits. Jesus’ directive to Paul was “to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me” (Acts 26:18).

C. Consider Example

“Be holy, blameless and above reproach” (Colossians 1:22), not without sin but not bringing shame on the Body of Christ or disgrace to the Name of Jesus. “Whoever misleads one of these little ones who believe in Me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung about his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).

“Not many of you should become teachers, knowing that we shall receive the greater judgment” (James 3:1). This is serious stuff!

Billy Graham, one of Amy’s and my heroes, mentioned in his less mature years foolishly going into an English pub (drinking a nonalcoholic beverage), then seeing a photo of his visit prominently featured in England’s newspapers to discredit his reputation, impact the crusade plus possibly cause some to stumble.

Billy would never be seen alone in public with another woman other than his wife. When Hillary Clinton once requested a private meeting, he declined, asking her understanding so as not to ever adversely influence others.

When King Saul committed suicide, David lamented but took pains to handle the tragedy discreetly, directing women not to report the scandal in public to avoid bringing reproach on the Name of the Lord (2 Samuel 1:17-20).

We will give an account if we influence others wrongly. One’s music can inspire millions; one’s example can mislead multitudes. Youth are especially vulnerable to LGBTQ propagandists who “promise freedom while they themselves are slaves to depravity” (2 Peter 2:19).

Here’s the deal: As we humbly seek God’s guidance, may the Good Shepherd “lead us in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake” (Psalm 23:3).

Amy Grant hosting same-sex wedding, now Christians schooling her on ‘sin’

Pop star coming under heavy fire from Franklin Graham, other believers

Amy Grant (Video screenshot)

By Bob Unruh

December 21, 2022 3:12pm

WND

Pop star Amy Grant, whose early years in the music industry had her focus on Christian music, recently announced that she is allowing a same-sex wedding, involving a family member, on her farm.

Which prompted noted evangelist Franklin Graham, the chief of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the worldwide Christian ministry Samaritan’s Purse, to remind her of something biblical.

“God defines what is sin, not us; and His Word is clear that homosexuality is sin,” he said in a social-media statement. “We have all sinned, and in order to have a relationship with God and spend eternity with Him in Heaven, we must turn from our sin and put our faith in His Son, Jesus, Christ, who came to earth to die for our sins.”

Grant has adopted the secular concept that love is love and all love is the same. [Blog Editor Bold Emphasis: Example of anti-God Secular Humanist moral relativism.]

She said, “Jesus, you just narrowed it down to two things: Love God & love each other.”

In a new WND column, bestselling author Larry Tomczak said of the situation: “We will give an account if we influence others wrongly. One’s music can inspire millions; one’s example can mislead multitudes. Youth are especially vulnerable to LGBTQ propagandists who ‘promise freedom while they themselves are slaves to depravity'” (2 Peter 2:19).

The Western Journal also delivered a Bible lesson to Grant.

“God’s Word admonishes us many times that one cannot serve both God and man. … James 4:4 states, ‘You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.'”

The commentary charged, “Christian music icon Amy Grant should take this verse into serious consideration as she continues to use her vast platform to support godless perspectives.”

It cited her “announcement regarding her intent, along with her country music star husband Vince Gill, to co-host the same-sex wedding of her niece…”

The Western Journal noted, “According to ChurchLeaders.com, this is not the first time Grant has openly supported homosexuality and the LGBT community. … ChurchLeaders cited a 2013 interview Grant did with the pro-gay news site ‘PrideSource,’ in which she referred to Christians who abide by God’s Word with regard to homosexuality as ‘the religious community.'”

She said, “I know that the religious community has not been very welcoming, but I just want to stress that the journey of faith brings us into community, but it’s really about one relationship. The journey of faith is just being willing and open to have a relationship with God. And everybody is welcome. Everybody.”

And, the commentary noted, “ChurchLeaders cited an even more disturbing interview that Grant gave with ‘Proud Radio’ host Hunter Kelly in 2021. It ‘doesn’t matter how we behave. It doesn’t matter how we’re wired,’ Grant said. ‘We’re all our best selves when we believe to our core, ‘I’m loved.’ And then our creativity flourishes,’ stated Grant.”

The Western Journal said, “Grant is heavily implying here that people are born gay in how they are ‘wired’ and dangerously believes that our acts and behaviors have no impact on our standing with God. She is also implying that those afflicted with homosexual urges should not feel any kind of conviction to repent and turn from their sin so long as they believe that they are ‘loved.'”

The publication, like Graham, warned Grant, “Indeed, we are loved by a God who sent His only Son, while we were yet His enemies, to die for our sins so we might be reconciled with the Father. But God cannot tolerate sin and its deliberate practice under the twisted guise of ‘love.'”

Graham added, “If we love God, we will seek to obey His Word. Jesus told us, ‘If you love Me, keep My commandments’ (John 14:15). … The Bible says, ‘Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out,’ (Acts 3:19). For me, loving others also means caring about their souls and where they will spend eternity. It means loving people enough to tell them the truth from the Word of God. The authority of God’s Word is something we can never compromise on.”

There Are Bad Times to Overcome – So RESIST


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© November 21, 2022

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who [a]sleep in Jesus.

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are [b]asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. — 1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18 NKJV

I subscribe to Prophecy Update which probably alienates a number of Believers Saved by the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Rather than engage in heated theological disagreements over the Word of God, WE the Redeemed should all realize that none of us will agree on our perceptions of what Redemption entails for the Redeemed in this AGE before the Return of King Jesus that begins the complete cleansing of the cursed Earth brought to humanity via Adam’s disobedience.

Until Christ’s Return the Redeemed should at least strive to find the common ground issues that all agree upon and stop fussing about the disagreements that only allows elements of the Curse to overshadow the spiritual reality of the Blessings we have in the Risen Savior Jesus the Christ.

I suspect for some Believers, that which is disagreed upon might be too heavy a weight to examine thoughts from those they disagree. I understand. I’ve been there and frankly sometimes and I get quite cranky with what I consider erroneous thinking or erroneous backstabbing.

Well … That’s my “Believers, let’s try to get along” by what we agree upon until Christ Returns to set the entire record straight for all of us.

So, Back to Prophecy Update.

I read two posts I sense are relevant to the corrupt tyranny Americans are experiencing under what I consider a godless Dem-Marxist coup-installed government.

1) Worthless Hissy Fits” by Daymond Duck posted on 11/19. Daymond begins by writing about Benjamin Netanyahu resuming the Office of Prime Minister for Israel. Then he elaborates on the hissy fits of Globalists internationally and Dem-Marxists in the USA by highlighting their anti-God agendas.

2) Gates of Hell Prophecy” by Terry James posted by 11/21. Terry’s theme is there is a Gates of Hell that all Believers in Christ will overcome. HOWEVER, until the Return of Jesus, there are and will be times when bad things happen to the Believers in the Risen Savior that will get worse as the days of the Tribulation approach. In these days of seemingly increasing tyranny against Liberty and Biblical Values, I found this an interesting read.

Worthless Hissy Fits

By Daymond Duck

November 19, 2022

Rapture Ready

Israel’s new government under former Prime Minister Netanyahu is expected to be very conservative (Netanyahu won 64 seats, and his new government will include members from the far right that want to change things on the Temple Mount and the West Bank).

Biblically speaking, the U.S. should eagerly support equal rights for Jews on the Temple Mount (the right to go there, pray there, etc.), Israel’s annexation of all the West Bank (at least some of the Jewish settlements), and more, but White House officials are panicking over changes on the Temple Mount.

They are already criticizing people that may be in Netanyahu’s government, and on Nov. 8, 2022, it was reported that America’s ambassador to Israel said the U.S. will aggressively fight Israel’s annexation of all or part of the West Bank.

Those in the White House are opposing what the Bible says about God’s restoration of Israel, but they do not believe the Bible, so they ignore what it says.

America’s rejection of Jehovah and the Bible, its celebration of perversion, and its desire to divide Israel are major reasons why America is in trouble.

The situation on the Temple Mount will change, God’s Word will be fulfilled, the Jews will rebuild the Temple and resume the animal sacrifices, and the worthless hissy fits (displeasure, anger, temper tantrums) of unbelievers in the White House before the Netanyahu government is even formed will not stop that.

Here are some recent events that recently made the news.

One, concerning world government: on Nov. 10, 2022, Human Events posted an article by Ethan Peck that says:

  • The leaders of all the G7 nations (7 major industrialized nations) took up the same slogan: “Build Back Better.”
  • The CEOs of the 3 American pharmaceutical companies that developed a vaccine for Covid-19 are frequent attendees of World Economic Forum (WEF) meetings.
  • The founders of Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Google have all attended WEF Young Global Leaders (YGL) training events.
  • Several of the most recognizable people in the media are graduates of the YGL school.

Peck astutely points out that all these people have one common denominator: the WEF.

(Question: What are the odds that all 7 major industrialized nations would adopt the same slogan in the same year?)

Two, concerning financing world government and wealth redistribution: on Nov. 8, 2022, a report was released at the COP27 meeting that calls for “developed countries” to start giving one trillion dollars a year before 2030 to “emerging markets and developing countries,” plus it was suggested that they also cut subsidies on fossil fuels and impose “carbon taxes” to raise about $1.4 trillion dollars more.

I cannot predict what world leaders will do, but these fanatics want control of everyone on earth and more than two trillion dollars of financing pouring in every year before 2030.

(Note: A recent poll found that more than 40% of highly respected climate scientists do not believe that climate change is settled science. The high level of skepticism among experts is one reason why many Bible prophecy teachers believe climate change is a scam to justify the establishment of a world government.)

Three, concerning a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) to eventually track all buying and selling: on Nov. 15, 2022, the NY Federal Reserve Bank announced a pilot program to explore the use of CBDCs for the next 3 months.

Several large banks and Master Card will participate in this pilot program.

I cannot predict what they will do, but I expect them to test the CBDC for the next 3 months and put it into use in at least some places early next year (unless the House or God stops them).

This will be a major step toward a new global economic system and the Mark of the Beast.

Four, concerning the decline of America: on Nov. 14, 2022, the Washington Examiner reported that Pres. Biden implied that the mid-term elections were a repudiation of former Pres. Trump’s “America First” foreign policy agenda.

In a past speech, Biden said “America First” is dead.

Biden’s goal is “Globalism First” (cause the decline of America and Build it Back Better with the New World Order), and he wants the U.S. to lead it.

(My Opinion: On Nov. 15, 2022, former Pres. Trump announced that he will run for president again in 2024. I believe we can expect Biden and America’s shadow government to do everything they can to lock the U.S. into a world government before the election.)

Five, concerning the mid-term elections in Pennsylvania: State Rep. Tony DeLuca was running for re-election, but he died on Oct. 9, 2022 (one month before the vote).

It was too late to change the ballots, so DeLuca’s name was still listed when the election took place.

Pennsylvania will now hold a special election to replace the deceased man that more than 85% of the people voted for.

(Note: Concerning corruption in the election: a Rasmussen survey on Nov. 8-9, 2022, found that 30% of likely voters believed that cheating was “very likely,” and 27% believed it was “likely.”)

(Note: Following the collapse of Crypto Exchange FTX, there have been reports that the head of the company gave more than $38 million of stolen money to Democrats to help them win the mid-term elections, and we may never know the truth, but one report said he was running a gigantic slush fund that was funneling money that was appropriated for Ukraine to selected Democrats.)

(My opinion: Those who do not believe there is corruption in the elections probably believe our border with Mexico is secure, we don’t have a drug problem, inflation is under control, Hunter’s laptop was disinformation, men can get pregnant, our border patrol agents beat immigrants with the reins of their horses, etc. Sadly, it looks like a strong delusion has come upon America.)

Six, concerning COP27: a reader asked this question, “I would like to know what that means to you in the prophecy world?”

Here is my slightly altered answer:

  • In essence, globalists are worshipping Mother Earth, the creation instead of the Creator (they are transforming climate change into a religion).
  • Globalists are replacing God’s Ten Commandments with ten commandments that have nothing to do with God. [Bold emphasis Blog Editor’s]
  • They are seeking to make their commandments global law, and that would empower them to persecute those that do not keep those global laws.
  • Attacking the Ten Commandments is an attack on Christians and Jews.
  • Globalists are replacing the Commandments written by the finger of God on stone tablets with commandments written by humans or a machine on paper.
  • The world religion is shaping up at the same time that globalists are working to establish a world government and world economic system.
  • All of this means the Rapture is close.

Seven, in a Nov. 12, 2022, American Thinker article, author Eric Utter reported that the UN and World Economic Forum (WEF) are working together on ways to dramatically reduce the population of the earth as part of the Great Reset.

Notice that Utter said “reduce” the population of the earth, not “maintain” the population of the earth.

According to Utter, the goal is to reduce the population of the earth by 50% or more by 2050.

Utter asks, “Who gets to decide which humans are expendable, unneeded?”

Eight, concerning a population reduction on earth: on Nov. 14, 2022, it was reported that the Australian government is now saying the danger of vaccinated males age 16-40 getting myocarditis (an infection in the heart that hinders the heart’s ability to pump blood) may be greater than the danger of getting Covid.

According to the report, citizens were told the Covid shots are safe, but they are not.

From now on, the Australian government will advise citizens under thirty not to take the fourth shot.

(More: On Nov. 15, 2022, it was reported that Covid vaccinations have caused an increase of death in all age groups by almost 300,000 people in the 27-nation EU during the first 44 weeks of 2022. [Bold Emphasis Blog Editor’s])

Nine, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: it is being reported that Russia has lost more than 100,000 troops and many weapons in its war against Ukraine.

This is terrible for the Russian troops and their families, and God can destroy Russia’s military no matter how many troops and weapons they have, but He may be weakening the Russian military before it attacks Israel.

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

Gates of Hell Prophecy

By Terry James

November 21, 2022

Prophecy Line

Often we overlook much prophetic truth when we read and study God’s Word. The Bible is without limits in its rich wisdom available to be mined. The Creator’s purpose in giving His Word to the human race is to provide direction for living in the most abundant way possible.

Jesus Christ is that WordThe last book of the Bible—Revelation—is the unveiling of Jesus in all His power, glory and majesty.

Prophecy—telling of the future—resides at the heart of that Word. The promises issued from the holy pages guarantee eternal life for each person ever to be born who genuinely accepts God’s grace-given redemption from sin through belief in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.

Jesus Christ is the Second Person of the Godhead, whom God the Father sees as the nucleus around which all things hold together:

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:16–17)

So, with it established that the Lord Jesus is preeminent in all things, we come back to the opening statement to add that one truth we often overlook deals most directly with the next prophecy to be fulfilled—the Rapture of the church.

Jesus spoke about this commentary’s primary topic—the gates of Hell. Although the disciples He was speaking to really had no concept of what He was referring to, the prophecy and its details have been coming to pass ever since—and are now set for fulfillment.

“He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:15–18)

They didn’t understand the concept of “the church;” at that point they were totally ignorant of that “structure” Jesus prophesied to be built. But built it was, and it is still under construction as each person who comes to salvation is added.

The specific part of this prophecy I want to look at in perhaps a new way is wrapped within the phrases “my church,” “the gates of hell,” and “shall not prevail against it.”

My study of how God deals with people–including believers—in different dispensations leads me to conclude that there are entirely different fates awaiting believers in Christ. And I’m talking about physical fate, not spiritual/eternal fate.

In terms of eternal fate, the gates of hell cannot and will not prevail or win against any believer in Jesus Christ. All believers, of every dispensation, will enjoy the bliss and exultation of Heaven forever. But in terms of physical fatebelievers are prophetically scheduled to meet differing destinies.

Here is something we’ve looked at before, but still is not the primary point I wish to address.

Jesus said in Matthew 16, as we’ve read above, that He will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. That has turned out to be the dispensation we call the Church Age. This began at Pentecost, as recorded in Acts chapter 2, when the Holy Spirit came to indwell believers. (I’m aware there are those who believe the church began along the shores of Galilee when Jesus began His ministry.)

On the other hand, the same Jesus, in His ascended form, gave the following prophecy to John to write in the Revelation.

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:7)   

So it is plain that in the physical sense, Satan (his Antichrist) will overcome—prevail against—the saints (believers in Christ). But the gates of hell, referring to Satan’s evil domain, will not prevail over the church. The devil will never be able to physically or spiritually totally overcome or destroy Christ’s Bride, the church.

Now to get to that nuance of examination I hope will help make clear just how important this promise to the church—all believers of the Church Age—really is.

My friend Jonathan Cahn, in his most recent book, The Return of the Gods, points to the spiritually and even physically observable reality that portals of the demonic sort have been somewhat opened in these obviously manifest times of insane, anti-god activity. We’ve examined many of the bizarre manifestations over and over in these columns, but I will only repeat that it looks like God is in the process of turning rebellious human beings over to a reprobate mindset—to demented, upside-down thinking, as Paul prophesied in Romans chapter 1:

I’m in agreement with Jonathan. And I believe these portals equate to Jesus’ reference to the gates of Hell.Those gatesare opening wider by the day, it seems. The demonic minions from those portals, as well as the human minions that are anti-God, intend to completely erase all vestiges of the true Christian church from the planet.

That will never happen. The very God who created all that exists has said so: “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it”—the church Jesus Christ is still building.

I’m convinced that the moment the Restrainer (the Holy Spirit) lifts His hand of restraint against these hellish forces, all believers will go to the Lord Jesus when He says: “Come up hither!” (Revelation 4:1).

The church cannot and will not be on planet earth when those gates of Hellare fully opened and allowed to overcome the saints of the Tribulation era (those saved following the Rapture). We have Christ’s Word on that wonderful promise.

With all the wickedness deluging this time on earth, the end is about to come like a flood (Daniel 9:26). The gates of hellwill soon swing fully open, bringing the most horrible, deadliest time of human history, according to the Lord (Matthew 24:21).

But you and I, if we know Christ for salvation, don’t have to worry for a second about being here to face that time. Jesus said He will keep us out of that hour of horror (Revelation 3: 10). To be sure you are a part of the church that will be taken out before that Tribulation era begins, follow Paul’s Holy Spirit-given instructions.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10) [Bold Emphasis Blog Editor’s]

Agreeing With God is Always the Wise Move

If one rightly divides the Word of God according to the Almighty’s original intent rather than Woke/Leftist theologians trying to fabricate alternative meaning through either deceptive word-tricks or downright human lying; the LGBTQ lifestyle is an unwholesome abomination to the Will of God (meaning God didn’t make anyone LGBTQ – It was choice). God’s clarity (Leviticus 18: 22; 20: 13; Romans 1: 18-19, 26-28 NKJV):

Leviticus

18 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

20 13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

Romans

1 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [b]manifest [c]in them, for God has shown it to them.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

So, now enter the Leftists-Globalists (and the brainwashed) imposing societal-cultural transformation demanding that all who agree with God Almighty are bigots.

Which brings to a post I read at CBN News: The Battle Is HIS’: Candace Cameron Bure’s Daughter Defends Mom Amid Attacks Over Celebrity’s Christian Faith.

I agree with God. Candace Cameron Bure agrees with God. AND God Almighty is a majority of ONE, regardless of how many humans claim God is wrong.

The back story is Bure departed from the Hallmark network over embracing the godless LGBTQ and moved to the Great American Family (GAF) making actual family values movies.

Below is the cross post.

CBN News

The daughter of Christian actor Candace Cameron Bure is coming to the celebrity’s defense as the star faces intense ridicule for sharing her faith in a recent interview.

“The Lord blessed me with the best parents I could’ve ever asked for,” wrote Natasha Bure, “raising us up in the Word of God and bringing glory to HIS name. I don’t know where I’d be without both of them.”

[Blog Editor: I don’t do Instagram to embed as CBN News did. Below is a Web Capture of Natasha Bure’s Instagram post appearing on CBN News]

In a newly published interview with the Wall Street Journal, the elder Bure celebrated her move to Great American Family, a Hallmark Channel competitor led by former Crown Media executive Bill Abbott.

She told the WSJ, “I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.” At another point, Bure acknowledged that — unlike Hallmark, which is leaning into LGBTQ storylines — GAF “will keep traditional marriage at the core.”

The backlash against Bure began almost immediately.

Hilarie Burton of “One Tree Hill” fame ridiculed Bure as a “bigot” and former “Dance Moms” star JoJo Siwa wrote in an Instagram post: “I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but then also talk about it in the press. This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.” [Blog Editor: Boohoo for a community embracing Godlessness. It’s never too late! Repent! Embrace the forgiveness embodied in Christ’s Redemptive work.]

Bure’s former “Full House” co-star Jodie Sweetin commented on Siwa’s post, writing, “You know I love you.”

The attacks against Bure’s faith have been cruel and consistent, but her daughter’s love for her mother is evident.

In addition to her Instagram post, the younger Bure heaped praise on her mom in an Instagram Story after a follower asked her to share her “favorite thing about your mama.”

“How much she loves Jesus and how firm in her faith she stands,” wrote Natasha Bure. “She is bold. She is kind. She is so creative and has one of the greatest hearts. I look up to her in many, many ways. [I] continuously feel blessed that God gave me her as my Mama.”

As for Bure’s career, the 46-year-old star is set to debut 18 Christmas movies on GAF this holiday season. Her first new film, “A Christmas… Present,” is set to premiere Nov. 27.

She left Hallmark for Great American Family earlier this year and now serves as the burgeoning network’s chief content officer, producing — and starring in — film projects across the channel.

When Bure first announced her partnership with GAF in April, she said in a statement she was “very excited to develop heartwarming family and faith-filled programming and make the kind of stories my family and I love to watch.”

“[GAF] fits my brand perfectly,” she continued. “We share a vision of creating compelling wholesome content for an audience who wants to watch programming for and with the whole family. Great, quality entertainment with a positive message is what my partnership with [GAF] is all about.”

Bure said her goal is to strike a balance between faith-focused and family-friendly entertainment that will be appealing to believers and unbelievers alike.

“I want to be able to tell that story in a beautiful way, but also that is not off-putting to the unbeliever or someone who shares a different faith,” she added.

Please pray for Bure and her family as she faces condemnation for her faith.

Resist 21st Century Antisemitism


John R. Houk

© November 5, 2022

I hope people have noticed Antisemitism has returned on levels that undoubtedly would have pleased Nazi in the 1930s and 1940s. Sad thing about the current Antisemitic infection is that Jews worldwide have embraced Leftist Thought and godless contradicting-Bible morals. In essence, a Leftist Jew still proud of their Judaic heritage has abandoned much of the God-given Covenant that has made the 12-Tribes of Israel the Chosen People.

Hence the 21st century emerging Antisemitism is largely based on Marxist/Socialist embraced ideology and societal-transforming constructs. For Conservative-Patriots observing American Jews embracing the Dem-Marxist Party, one passionately desires to criticize.

The Problem: No matter how one tries to justify a new found Antisemitism, the Bible is still Clear. Jews who keep and practice their Torah (1st five books of Old Testament) Covenant are the apple of God’s Eye and are the primary receivers of Promise: a People Chosen and a People Promised specific geographic land.

A constant problem plaguing the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has been the issue of Covenant-keeping. When the Hebrew Leadership inspired the people to Keep Covenant, the Hebrew People are receivers of God’s Promises. When the Hebrew Leadership inspires Covenant-abandonment, the Hebrew People experience promised curses primarily because disobedience withdraws God’s protection. Today the Gentile (non-Jewish) world view the Hebrew Tribes as Jews, largely as the result of the curse: The last independent Israeli Kingdom of the Davidic line was the Tribe of Judah (the Kingdom of Judah consisted of larger Tribe-Judah and much smaller Tribe-Benjamin). The last Kings of Judah were not Covenant-Keepers which resulted in the Babylonian Captivity. When Persia conquered Babylon, the Persian emperor allowed Judah-Captives (who chose to) to return to their homeland. From “Judah” is where the designation “Jew” come from.

Understanding the ebb and flow of blessings and cursing is recorded in the lengthy Chapter 28 of Deuteronomy (NKJV):

Blessings and Cursings

Blessings on Obedience

28 1“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:

“Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

“Blessed shall be the [a]fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

“The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord [b]swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you His good [c]treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you [d]heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Curses on Disobedience

15 “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

16 “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country.

17 “Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

18 “Cursed shall be the [e]fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

19 “Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.

20 “The Lord will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me. 21 The Lord will make the [f]plague cling to you until He has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess. 22 The Lord will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching,[g] and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish. 23 And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron. 24 The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.

25 “The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become [h]troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 Your carcasses shall be food for all the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and no one shall frighten them away. 27 The Lord will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, with the scab, and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed. 28 The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart. 29 And you shall grope at noonday, as a blind man gropes in darkness; you shall not prosper in your ways; you shall be only oppressed and plundered continually, and no one shall save you.

30 “You shall betroth a wife, but another man shall lie with her; you shall build a house, but you shall not dwell in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but shall not gather its grapes. 31 Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you shall not eat of it; your donkey shall be violently taken away from before you, and shall not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you shall have no one to rescue them. 32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all day long; and there shall be [i]no strength in your hand. 33 A nation whom you have not known shall eat the fruit of your land and the produce of your labor, and you shall be only oppressed and crushed continually. 34 So you shall be driven mad because of the sight which your eyes see. 35 The Lord will strike you in the knees and on the legs with severe boils which cannot be healed, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.

36 “The Lord will bring you and the king whom you set over you to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you shall serve other gods—wood and stone. 37 And you shall become an[j] astonishment, a proverb, and a byword among all nations where the Lord will drive you.

38 “You shall carry much seed out to the field but gather little in, for the locust shall [k]consume it. 39 You shall plant vineyards and tend them, but you shall neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 40 You shall have olive trees throughout all your territory, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil; for your olives shall drop off. 41 You shall beget sons and daughters, but they shall not be yours; for they shall go into captivity. 42 Locusts shall [l]consume all your trees and the produce of your land.

43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

45 “Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you [m]did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. 46 And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever.

47 “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. 51 And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you.

52 “They shall besiege you at all your gates until your high and fortified walls, in which you trust, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you at all your gates throughout all your land which the Lord your God has given you. 53 You shall eat the [n]fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you, in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you. 54 The [o]sensitive and very refined man among you will[p] be hostile toward his brother, toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the rest of his children whom he leaves behind, 55 so that he will not give any of them the flesh of his children whom he will eat, because he has nothing left in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates. 56 The [q]tender and [r]delicate woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot on the ground because of her delicateness and sensitivity, [s]will refuse to the husband of her bosom, and to her son and her daughter, 57 her [t]placenta which comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of everything in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates.

58 “If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD YOUR GOD, 59 then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues—great and prolonged plagues—and serious and prolonged sicknesses. 60 Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed. 62 You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. 63 And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked[u] from off the land which you go to possess.

64 “Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known—wood and stone. 65 And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the Lord will give you a [v]trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul. 66 Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life. 67 In the morning you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were evening!’ And at evening you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were morning!’ because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes see.

68 “And the Lord will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, ‘You shall never see it again.’ And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you.

Note the curses of disobedience are more numerous.

Christian Antisemites are typically quick to point out that Jewish disobedience has led to some kind of transference of Blessings permanently removed from Jews and given to Christians. UNFORTUNATELY for Christian Antisemites the New Testament (the Covenant presented after the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ) CLEARLY is to the Jew First and the engrafted Gentile Second. Which has nothing to do with the primacy of one group over the other but more a bringing of those without Covenants and Promises (i.e., Gentiles) onboard with the original Chosen People. MEANING not a replacement but an addition.

CONSIDER Romans 1: 16-17; 2: 5, 7-11 (NKJV):

1 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel [a]of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the [a]Greek; 10 but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11 For there is no partiality with God.

Footnote

a. Romans 2:9 Gentile

AND just to be there is no primacy of position but just honor of first selected and second added yet BOTH one in the /risen Savior Jesus – Ephesians 2: 11-22 (NKJV):

2 11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

If there was ever good evidence to point to reasons for Jews to NOT trust Christians sharing and/or evangelizing the Good News of Salvation and Redemption by the Blood of the Risen Messiah Jesus the Son of God, it is the way too often violent Christian Antisemitism over thousands of historical years through unscriptural blood libel blaming such as Christ-Killing and just poisonous lies such the blood sacrifice of Christian Children (Too many Christians support unborn baby murder via abortion as if a woman’s authority over her body extends to a God-created little life awaiting to be born).

YUP, I condemn Antisemitism in any form it manifests: an atheist Antisemite, a Christian Antisemite, a Muslim Antisemite or whatever kind of Antisemite I cannot think of.

It’s been quite some time since I have taken a journey to attack the idiocy of Antisemitism. But as I alluded earlier in this post, a large segment of Jews have placed a target on their own back by embracing the God-hating ideology of Leftist. Anything Leftist (it really doesn’t matter the degree of Marxism – which is atheistic by nature – or the variation of Socialism – which either dilutes God’s Word or degenerates God’s Word to myth eliminating Divinity) removes the efficacy of God’s Covenant. Frankly, that includes self-proclaimed Christians who do the very same thing Leftist Jews do. But that is another train of thought.

You might be interested why I decided to rail against Antisemitism. Although it happened a few days ago, I discovered Benjamin Netanyahu has again fought off the Jewish Left in Israel and has won the role of Prime Minister in Israel. Netanyahu is adding more time as the already longest serving Prime Minister in modern Israel history.

For American Patriots disgusted about the constant lies and false accusations leveled against legitimate President Trump – INCLUDING AN ELECTION COUP 2020, Benjamin Netanyahu lost his last term as Prime Minister via the same of Leftist vitriol Trump endured.

Sara & Benjamin Netanyahu November 2022

If Netanyahu can overcome his Leftist Covenant-breaking countrymen, perhaps Donald J. Trump will rise again to spank American Leftists are either witting or unwitting God-haters.

Yesterday I got to an email in time from Ari Bussel informing me of a Conference Call billed as National Faith Leaders Call with Donald Trump. Ari provided the contact info to be on the call to me which I indeed participated (9/2/21).

The call began with a proviso that if members managed to get access to hang up now for the Conference Call was to be off the record. Because of that I will not share the content of what I was able to listen. Sadly my old Android Smart Phone dropped the call about a half-hour after beginning. BUT this I will share: President Trump (that without FRAUD – the actually elected President in 2020) was very upbeat and did NOT sound like a quitter.

In conjunction with that Conference Call I am sharing Ari Bussel’s email exchange with whom he was invited to participate.

Carry the Flag to Zion!

Dear Amanda, Jenny and Pastor Paula,

What an extraordinary surprise and blessing it is to have received your invite this morning!  So while we were (not) “asleep at the wheel,” and while numbness seems to have frozen us to the point of “slumber and sleep,” you have apparently continued working, creating, germinating and are here now, ready for this very day!

There is nothing more encouraging and uplifting that looking all around and seeing the multitudes – us – ready and eager to join; standing thirsty and waiting for these drops of rain, like seeds in the Sahara Desert.

We are one, great in numbers, but united in essence and purpose – in belief in God the Almighty and what He wants from us.  Thus, a song plays in my mind, written more than 120 years ago following the First Zionist Congress.  The Congress main mission was to UNITE the Jewish People, all hundreds and hundreds of its cooperatives, associations and groups into one great movement whose members will emigrate to the Land of Israel, in great waves.

[שאו ציונה נס ודגל – S’u Tziona Nes va Degel]

Lift toward Zion a pole and flag, the flag of the Judean camp … 

Return, return from great distances

to our homeland, to the land of our Fathers …

For our people, for our land, be strong and become strong

Together we will go, please, we will return

to our land, that of our Forefathers

to our beloved land

where our childhood began ….

Then our mouths will be filled with laughter and our tongue with singing (Psalms 126:2 – which continues, “then said they among the nations:  ’The Lord has done great things with these!’”)

And so the song that has become somewhat of an anthem (and has filled my mind, refusing to leave) is based on the words of the Prophet Jeremiah.  The Prophet tells us to “tell,” to “sound,” to “say” and to “blow the horn,” – to “call, fill and tell, gather and let us come together” – all action directives – CARRY THE FLAG TO ZION, DARE NOT STAND” (idle), carry the flag, unite!

Jeremiah Chapter 4 יִרְמְיָהוּ

ה  הַגִּידוּ בִיהוּדָה, וּבִירוּשָׁלִַם הַשְׁמִיעוּ, וְאִמְרוּ, ותקעו (תִּקְעוּ) שׁוֹפָר בָּאָרֶץ; קִרְאוּ מַלְאוּ וְאִמְרוּ, הֵאָסְפוּ וְנָבוֹאָה אֶל-עָרֵי הַמִּבְצָר

ו  שְׂאוּ-נֵס צִיּוֹנָה, הָעִיזוּ אַל-תַּעֲמֹדוּ:  כִּי רָעָה, אָנֹכִי

מִצָּפוֹן–וְשֶׁבֶר גָּדוֹל.

5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem, and say: ‘Blow ye the horn in the land’; cry aloud and say: ‘Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the fortified cities.’

6 Set up a standard toward Zion; put yourselves under covert, stay not; for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

You have called us to the Flag today, exactly a week before our Jewish New Year.

It is  at this time (this Hebrew month leading to the Jewish New Year, in the Seventh Month of the Biblical Calendar) that it is said we are closest to God; 

that God hears us clearest,

for the King is in the Fields – 

out of the castle, traveling, closest to His people

who are working in the fields

It is this month, 

therefore,

that we ask for forgiveness

that we focus on retrospection (and introspection)

and get ready to the blowing of the Shofar (horn)

which is (what we are commanded to do on) the first day of our New Year

We celebrate the past

we look into the future

and we stand ready

a great many multitudes

and are so very grateful for your Call

and for leading the way!

Numbers Chapter 29 בְּמִדְבַּר

א  וּבַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ, מִקְרָא-קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה לָכֶם–כָּל-מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ:  יוֹם תְּרוּעָה, יִהְיֶה לָכֶם.

1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work; it is a day of blowing the horn unto you.

White House High Holy Days Call

Friday, September 27, 2019

Operator:  Hello and thank you for joining today’s High Holy Days call with Jewish faith leaders. Please note that this call is being recorded. At this time all audience members are in listen-only mode to minimize background noise. There will be Q&A at the end of this call, and we will provide instructions at that time. I would now like to formally begin today’s call and introduce President of the United States, Donald J Trump.

Pres. Trump:  It’s a great honor to be with you and to host our third annual call with Jewish leaders, rabbis and friends to wish you Shana Tova, a sweet new year. During the High Holy Days, families gather in synagogues across the country and around the world to sound the shofar and pray, reflect and thank God for His many blessings.

As we mark the Jewish New Year, our entire country is reminded of the infinite ways Jewish Americans strengthen our communities, uplift our nation, and deepen our culture. You care for your neighbors, teach your children, cherish our heritage, and you embody the American dream. Throughout history, the Jewish people have suffered unthinkable oppression and persecution, yet they have persevered, endured, thrived, and created a flourishing democracy – the state of Israel.

In the last two and a half years, we have strengthened the everlasting friendship between the United States and Israel. I moved the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. We recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which was something they were trying to have done for 72, or 52 years to be more specific. We’re confronting Iran, a regime that chants “Death to Israel.”

As I said in my recent address to United Nations, America will never tolerate anti-Semitic hate. In recent months, our entire nation was stricken with shock and grief and righteous anger when two horrific anti-Semitic murderers attacked synagogues in California and Pennsylvania. To every survivor, family member and to the entire Jewish community, all of America embraces you with love. We pledge our undying and total resolve to excise the vile placing of anti-Semitism from our world. Earlier this year, I appointed a new special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. Elan Carr, who is with us now and will provide an update shortly. In the wake of such atrocious attacks, millions have been inspired by Jewish-American heroes who responded to the worst evil with remarkable bravery. During my State of the Union Address, we were all moved by the presence of Pittsburgh survivor, Judah Samet, who also survived the Holocaust. In May, on the National Day of Prayer in the Rose Garden, we were joined by members of the congregation from Poway, California, including Rabbi Goldstein. This afternoon we’re joined on the call by survivors of the Holocaust. We cannot comprehend the persecution and suffering you have endured, yet you have overcome the darkest chapters of human history with the purity of love and goodness in your hearts. We renew our pledge now and always. Never again.

I understand that during this time of year, you often read Psalm 27. We remember the promise of those words that says, “Wait for the Lord. Be strong and let your heart take courage.” Today, we thank God for His faithfulness and for the countless ways Jewish-Americans bless our nation.

Always,

Ari Bussel
