    16 Trillion in Debt and the End of the World, As We Know It

    The National debt of the United States of America is well past 16 Trillion Dollars as of this morning. We see the image of the National Debt clock on the television screen so often that we have become desensitized to what it really means.

    The end of the world will not happen on Friday December 21, 2012 in a physical sense, but for Americans the end of the world Fiscally, may be just around the corner.

    We cannot sustain the massive amount of debt we have accumulated much longer. For all practical purposes, our country is bankrupt and will reach the point of unsustainable debt in the very near future.

    Many experts have stated that by 2020, our National Debt will be close to 25 Trillion Dollars. This huge number is allowing for very positive projections in government revenue of about 2.5 Trillion per year currently, to almost 5 Trillion a year by 2020.

    A more likely scenario is that our revenues will be substantially less than these projections and our National Debt will be close to 30 Trillion Dollars by 2020. The current interest on this debt is 1.5 Trillion per year, which is more than 60 percent of our current yearly Government Revenues. If this trend continues then by 2020, all entitlements would cease and the United States government would be Bankrupt and unable to sustain itself.

  • The Cure For Gun Violence

    The Cure For Gun Violence

    After a tragedy such as the mass murder of 2o children at Sandy Hook school in Newtown Connecticut, the discussion over banning automatic weapons inevitably comes up. For some people who do not understand the nature of gun violence, they often blame the availability of certain weapons, or all guns, for the violence that often results from people killing others with firearms.

    Outlawing certain guns, or all guns, would not stop a person who is seeking to kill another with a firearm. There are currently over 320 million licensed firearms in the United States. Even if we banned the sale of all new weapons tomorrow, how are we going to control the 320 million guns that are already legally owned?

    The old adage “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”, is absolutely true.

    Studies have shown that in places where there are a high number of good citizens with firearms for their personal protection, the incidents of gun violence by bad people, is very low.

    Thanksgiving, November 1, 1777

    Thanksgiving, November 1, 1777

    It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

  • America: Want God’s Blessing? Be a Blessing to God

    America: Want God’s Blessing? Be a Blessing to God

    I watched with great interest the president’s speech this morning on rebuilding the economic prosperity of America. It was a great and inspiring speech and contained many important and relevant facts that inspired me and is the reason that I am writing this post.

    The key element of President Obama’s speech that was missing was the fact that America has been blessed by God in her past history because the citizens of this great land have honored and worshipped the God of the Bible.

    The founders of our nation stated that it was impossible that this land could have come into existence if God had not willed it to be. The reason for our past prosperity and global standing as the most wealthy and powerful nation on the earth is because as a people, we have in the past honored God.

    “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” - George Washington

    America and the Prophecies of the Last Days

    America and the Prophecies of the Last Days

    There has been a pattern developing over the course of the past few years that indicates that events around the world are centered on the United States.

    Uprising in Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, Tunisia, Jordan, Libya, with more to come. Global spikes in oil prices. Attacks on Americans in Germany, off the coast of Somalia, across Europe, the Philippines and Asia.

    All these events have one overwhelming target: America and Americans.

    Is it just a coincidence that all of the global uprisings and conflicts seem to be centered on the United States? A hatred by the people in these nations for regimes that our government gave billions of dollars to support, who have cruel and oppressive dictators as their leaders.

    Some who study Bible prophecy indicate that the United States’ unwillingness to return to God and the elimination of God from our schools, government and families has caused the Lord to begin to do in America, what He has done in Israel.

  • When You See Jerusalem Surrounded…

    When You See Jerusalem Surrounded…

    I was thinking about the events of the past week regarding the revolution in Egypt and the reorganization of Jordan by King Abdullah. The radical elements inside these two countries want to do in Egypt and Jordan what they have already done in many of the nations of the Middle East. To bring radical Islam as the director of their government and religious institutions.

    While reading Luke chapter 21, I was struck by the words that Jesus spoke as He as teaching about the last days just prior to His return.

    Luke 21:20-22 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”

    “When we see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that it’s destruction is near…”

    I opened up a map of the middle east on my Macbook and looked at Israel. All around this tiny nation, barely the size of the state of New Jersey, were many large and powerful Arab nations.

    For the past 30 years, there have been just three of these nations that have stood with Israel and resisted internal and external pressure to transform their countries into governments led by radical Islamic leadership. Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt have helped make the security of Israel possible and have remained allies of the United States.

    Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have remained free of radical Islam for nearly three decades and have maintained a friendly status quo with Israel. With the events of the past week concerning Egypt’s attempted ouster of their leadership, largely supported by the radical elements of Islam, and the King of Jordan firing his entire cabinet to replace them with more moderate members, two of the thee three walls of protection for Israel are near the point of collapse.

    Egyptian Uprising Was Planned by U.S. Government

    Egyptian Uprising Was Planned by U.S. Government

    Persistent claims were heard Saturday, Jan. 29 in various Egyptian and informed western circles that the popular uprising against president Hosni Mubarak, still going strong on its fifth day, was secretly prepared three years ago in Washington during the Bush administration.

    Saturday morning, people rage across Egypt gathered steam from Mubarak’s speech after midnight, in which he declined to step down. After defying the night curfew, tens of thousands of protesters, estimated at 50,000, crowded into central Cairo’s Tahrir Square and began marching on the state TV building, calling on the soldiers in tanks ranged quietly around the square to oust the president. They shouted that the people and army were one.

    Law and order is breaking down in Egypt’s cities. In Cairo looters are roaming through shops and smoldering public buildings and seizing empty residences. Rioting inmates are confronting armed warders and getting shot in Egypt’s biggest prisons. Political prisoners are escaping.

    In defiance of the extended nationwide curfew, fierce clashes also erupted in Alexandria, Suez, Ismailia, Rafah and El Arish, with security forces firing live ammunition on surging protesters. By the afternoon, 100 people were dead and 2,000 injured across the country. The death toll Friday was estimated at 74 and more than a thousand wounded.

    In Cairo, the hated Mahabharat security forces vanished off the main streets after failing to quell four days of protests. The military tanks and infantry units posted at strategic points in the capital have so far not fired a shot or interfered in the clashes. But the Interior Ministry’s elite security force fired live ammo on demonstrators attempting to storm the building.

    The London Daily Telegraph headlined a story Saturday, apparently confirming confidential US documents released by WikiLeaks, which claimed that since 2008, the American government had secretly backed leading figures behind the uprising for “regime change.”

    Hawaii Says There is No Official Obama Birth Certificate

    Hawaii Says There is No Official Obama Birth Certificate

    In 2009,WND documentedthat Obama and his supporters had first claimed he was born at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, before the story changed to Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu.

    AfterWND’s report on the two conflicting hospitals, online news sites including the United Press International and Snopes.com scrubbed their websites to eliminate any reference to Queens Medical Center, substituting instead that Obama was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center without explaining the discrepancy or the correction.

    As WND reported, the letter read by Abercrombie and initially displayed on the Kapi’olani website turned out to be a computer-created likeness of a letter using HTML code, the building blocks of Internet websites, not an actual paper letter.In 2010, then-candidate for governor Neil Abercrombiewas involved in an Obama birth controversywhen he read a letter at a Kapi’olani Medical Center centennial dinner in Honolulu that supposedly was authored by President Obama, claiming Kapi’olani as his birth hospital.

    The White House has still not confirmed it wrote or sent the letter.

    Moreover, Adams claims, the Hawaii government was engaged in a cover-up designed to tell the American public through the Obama-supporting mainstream media that Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama could be found on record in the Hawaii Department of Health.

    In the affidavit Adams swears, “During the course of my employment, I came to understand that for political reasons, various officials in the government of Hawaii, including then-Governor Linda Lingle and various officials of the Hawaii Department of Health, including Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of the Hawaii Department of Health, were making representations that Senator Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no government official in Hawaii could find a long-form birth certificate for Senator Obama that had been issued by a Hawaii hospital at the time of his birth.”

  • Tony Blair Often Read His Bible in Making Decisions

    Tony Blair Often Read His Bible in Making Decisions

    The Prime Minister of Britain often spent the night reading his Bible before making the really big decisions during his term in office.

    Alastair Campbell was the press secretary for Tony Blair during his term in office. He recorded in his diaries that on the night before the bombing of Iraq, Tony Blair had second thoughts after reading the story of King Herod and John the Baptist in the New Testament.

    In the story of John the Baptist, Herod was unduly influenced by others in making the decision to execute John the Baptist. In the last part of Mark chapter 6: verse 26 the scripture records that “The King was exceedingly sorry (For his decision) yet because of the oaths (He went ahead and carried out the execution).

  • National Debt Reaches 14 Trillion

    National Debt Reaches 14 Trillion

    For the first time in history, the United States national debt has reached 14,025,215,218,708.52. That is 14 Trillion!

    Just seven months ago the National debt was 13 Trillion dollars. Within days the statutory limit set by the Obama administration for the debt ceiling will be at 14.294 Trillion. At that point the Federal government cannot borrow any more money and could default on it’s former obligations.

    If the Federal Government of the United States should default on any loan as a result of this, it would be the first time in history this has happened.

    If you and I reach our limit on how much we can borrow, we have to stop borrowing. We then cannot spend more than we have earned. This is not true for our Federal Government. When they reach their limit they simply print more money and keep on spending. Over the past 50 years, the Federal government has gone past their budget limit 44 times.

    The Federal Government sells U.S. Treasury bills which are really I.O.U’s that are used to pay off the money that it has borrowed. If the debt limit is enforced and we cannot issue any more Treasure bills/I.O.U.’s to ourself, then the government will cease to function.

    That is how serious our situation is and how close we are to National bankruptcy.

  • What is the Big Deal with Israel?

    What is the Big Deal with Israel?

    Have you ever wondered why the entire world seems to be making such a big fuss over the tiny little nation of Israel?

    The land mass of Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersey. You could drive across the entire country lengthwise in about 2 hours.

    One of the better Bible Prophecy web sites on the Internet, devotes most of their resources to tracking the daily activity that is centered around the nation of Israel. With all of the activity by Secretary of State Clinton, a huge push is underway to secure a peaceful solution to the tensions in that part of the middle east.

    Okay, okay, so there is lot’s of activity on Israel now, but all this attention on Israel has not just occurred at this place in history. The interest and focus of the world has been on Israel since she became a nation again in 1948. The Palestinians insist that the land is theirs, the Jews insist that God gave the land to them as an eternal inheritance. The rest of the world watches the two sides fight over property rights like two small children screaming that the toy is “Mine”.

    The purpose of this post is to point out that the real reason that the tiny little nation of Israel is on the hearts and minds of the whole world, is because this land is on the heart and mind of the Lord of Heaven. Every since the Lord called Joshua to bring the former complaining and doubting children of Israel out from the desert, into their own land, the land of Israel has been a huge priority for the Lord.

    Now That The Election is Over, It’s Our Turn To Work

    Now That The Election is Over, It’s Our Turn To Work

    As the Mid-Term elections have concluded, Americans again have an opportunity to gain some voice in the future direction of our country.

    It is always interesting to me how “We the People” view our roles in electing those who represent us in our state and Federal governments. Most of us think that when we vote we are playing a role in shaping the course of events that will determine the future of all Americans. I suppose to some degree, this is absolutely true. Are there other factors that are even of greater importance that perhaps we have not considered or thought of?

    I wanted to bring some thoughts to this article that I had long since forgotten myself, that perhaps many of you had also not considered.

    When Daniel was kidnapped from his homeland in Israel by King Nebuchadnezzar and brought back to Babylon, he probably had no idea of the role that he was about to play in shaping the course of one of the most powerful kingdoms the world has ever known.

    Pelosi Wants to be a Speaker of ‘The Word’

    Pelosi Wants to be a Speaker of ‘The Word’

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) surprised many when she told the Catholic Community Conference that she feels compelled to “give voice” through public policy to “the Word made Flesh,” CNS News reported Tuesday. “My favorite word is the Word,” Pelosi, a lifelong Catholic, said to the May 6 conference on Capitol Hill. “And that is everything. It says it all for us. And you know the Gospel reference of the Word. And that Word is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word.” “Fill it in with anything you want,” she said. “But, of course, we know it means: ‘The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.’ And that’s the great mystery of our faith. … So, we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.”

    Scott Brown: He’s No Ted Kennedy

    Scott Brown: He’s No Ted Kennedy

    Political advocacy groups stayed up late Tuesday night to see that the unbelievable had actually occurred—a Republican had filled the Senate vacancy left by the death of Senator Edward Kennedy.
    The replacement was painfully ironic for Democrats. Kennedy was a long-time advocate for universal health care, and the election of Scott Brown gives Republicans the one additional vote needed to block Democrat health care legislation.
    As the dust settled, Christian advocacy groups interpreted the results.
    “This election had nothing to do with Scott Brown or Martha Coakley,” said Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council (FRC). “It was about our President, who stepped into the Oval Office 365 days ago and made a hard-Left turn so fast that it gave Americans whiplash.”

    MADRID — Spain took over the presidency of the European Union on Friday, with the prime minister promising to work to end the continent’seconomic crisis.
    The six-month rotating post passed from Sweden to Spain at the stroke of midnight, and the country launched its stint in the helm with a spectacular sound and light show for New Year’s Eve revelers gathered at the Puerta del Sol, one of Madrid’s most emblematic plazas.
    Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Spain’s main goal as EU president is “to fight for economic recovery, for recovery from the crisis, and make Europe an economy that is more and more productive, more and more innovative and more and more sustainable

    The Effect Christians Have on Politics

    The Effect Christians Have on Politics

    For political analysts, the lesson in Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman’s loss this month in a special congressional election in New York is obvious: The right overreached. After pressuring Republican nominee Dede Scozzafava out of the race with charges that she was too liberal, conservative activists watched New York’s 23rd District go to a Democrat for the first time in more than a century. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who had endorsed Scozzafava and warned Republicans not to “purge the party of anybody who doesn’t agree with us 100 percent,” appeared to be vindicated.

    Senate Prepares For Debate on Health Care Bill

    WASHINGTON (AP) — After months of maneuvering, the Senate stands at the brink of a historic battle over health care with President Barack Obama and his allies on one side and Republicans, outnumbered but unflinching, on the other.

    “Now it’s America’s turn, and this will not be a short debate,” Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, warned after Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled long-awaited legislation Wednesday night to extend coverage to 30 million more Americans and force insurance companies to take all comers.
