Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

10:42 PM - Russia Has Officially Criminalized Biblical Christianity

Putin shows his true colors. No friend to Christians.

-------------------------

Yesterday, Russia's new anti-terrorism laws, which restrict Christians from evangelizing outside of their churches, went into effect.

The "Yarovaya package" requires missionaries to have permits, makes house churches illegal, and limits religious activity to registered church buildings, among other restrictions. Individuals who disobey could be fined up to $780, while organizations could be fined more than $15,000.

Forum 18 offers an analysis of the laws and their ramifications for Protestants and other non-Orthodox believers. World Watch Monitor compiled the worried reactions of Russian evangelical leaders and concerned observers.

The new laws will "create conditions for the repression of all Christians," wrote Russia's Baptist Council of Churches in an open letter. "Any person who mentions their religious view or reflections out loud or puts them in writing, without the relevant documents, could be accused of 'illegal missionary activity.'"

10:39 PM - The Police Connection to Freemasonry

In the Unites States, blatant Masonic symbolism is found in the emblem of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).  The order, founded in 1915 at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has more than 300,000 sworn law enforcement officers.  Mark Passio, a man who claims to be an “ex-Satanist”, has an interesting analysis of the hidden messages portrayed in the emblem.  Besides the all-seeing eye located in the bottom left, a checkered floor pattern with three pillars are displayed in the center.  This is an allusion to the Temple of Solomon in which the checkered-board style floor represents lower consciousness (current state of the  majority of people).  The top pillars are indicators of duality (male/female) while the center pillar represents unity/balance, a state of consciousness that only the “Illuminated ones” can achieve.

Also notice the Masonic handshake. I have sometimes wondered if the Dallas police killings were an inside job. The above excerpt is taken from Freemasons in Law Enforcement: Deadly Tools of the Jesuits. Much more at this link.

9:29 PM - Rick Wiles of TruNews Goes Too Far

One day this past week, I think Wednesday, Wiles along with his co-host Doc Burkhart viciously attacked Alex Jones blaming him for the proliferation of recent police killings. In a display of CNN controlled media like insanity Wiles likened Alex to Black Lives Matter and ISIS. How ridiculous can he get? Of course he chose to portray AJ at his worst moments. I wonder how Wiles would like to be highlighted at his worst.

The truth is AJ was among the first alternative broadcasters to warn Americans of the growing police state. I bought a copy of his Police State 2000 video so it's not like he was lying. Wiles also accused Alex and his crew of inciting violence at the RNC in Cleveland. He essentially condemned the entire Infowars organization. In listening to Wiles' rant against Alex I can only conclude that he condones the ever building Nazi like police state that murders over 1000 Americans annually. But this isn't the first time he has bashed Jones.

Is Wiles controlled opposition? A tool of the devil? Whatever he is he is out to pull his wiles over the undiscerning. Like a spigot that gushes forth pure and polluted water one never knows what self righteous Wiles will pour out from one moment to the next.

Unless I read or see about his deception elsewhere I will no longer be reporting on him. I can no longer feed my mind and spirit with his off and on garbage so won't be listening to his shows at all anymore. He nor TruNews has not gained any credibility with his new programming.

9:24 PM - James Dobson Endorses Trump

Dr. James Dobson: Trump Has Been 'Unwavering in His Commitment' to  Evangelicals

The world renowned family advocate said he had decided to endorse Trump, but not just because he had concerns about Democratic presidential nominee-in-waiting Hillary Clinton. There were plenty of reasons to vote for Trump and not just against Clinton, he added.

"Mr. Trump has been unwavering in his commitment to issues that are   important to evangelicals such as myself. In particular, I have been heartened by his pledge to appoint conservative Supreme Court justices, preserve religious liberty, rebuild the military and defend the sanctity of human life."

Dobson addressed Trump's inconsistent message on abortion, saying he chooses not to evaluate the Republican nominee on his past positions, but  rather on his current convictions. He said he believes God can change the hearts and minds of people, and he "celebrates" whenever they support "principles of righteousness."

He also noted that hearing Trump's children speak about their father, and the manner in which they do so, had a profound impact on his nomination decision. Echoing a sentiment Pence made earlier in the week, Dobson said one cannot make his or her children speak about him or her the way Trump's children spoke of their father this week at the Republican National Convention.

9:34 PM - Leftist Michael Moore Predicts Trump Will Win

Michael Moore, arguably one of the most liberal American filmmakers, is hardly the person conservatives and Christians would turn to for political predictions.

But his most recent comments on the state of the 2016 presidential election were likely just as shocking to conservatives as they were for liberals. While appearing on HBO's political talk show Real Time with Bill Maher, the documentarian weighed in with his stunning prediction:

Donald Trump will win in November.

"I'm sorry to have to be the buzzkill here so early on," he said, "But I think Trump is going to win."

The vast majority of the conversation was a vulgar, profanity-laced rant against the Republican presidential nominee and his family, and of participants in the Republican National Convention in general. Moore was joined by militant LGBT activist Dan Savage and MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid on the show's panel.

"People are in denial about this, but the chance of him winning is really, really good," Moore reiterated later in the program. "We don't want him to be president, but please don't live in denial about this, because the very thing we're describing here ... he's going to turn his presidency into a reality show."

9:32 PM - Like Hillary Mass Media Controlled by Satan

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson: Media Controlled by 'Satan'

In discussing media criticisms of Donald Trump as a "fascist," Duck Dynasty star, Duck Commander Phil Robertson, told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon of those outlets, "What they actually are, they're controlled by "Satan," or "the evil one."

"There's two great powers at work. There's good–that's God–and evil. You have the larger portion who are controlled by the evil one," said Robertson.

His comments came during a conversation about America today from a spiritual perspective. The U.S., said Robertson, "is in a spiritual crisis, no doubt about that." Among other topics, he discussed the general welfare of America in religious terms.

7:18 PM - Why Christians Must Not Sit Out This Election

Overall this Reoublican convention was probably the most grassroots evident in my lifetime of 65 years. GOP globalists like Gingrich, Giuliani, and others were still there but more in the background. Gone is the Bush mafia. Praise God for that! Of course conservatives have lost a lot of morality in the past few decades with the crowd cheering sodomite Peter Thiel. Nevertheless a Trump presidency would be a ray of hope. He does have a remarkable family. If he only accomplishes 10% of what he wants to it would be a big improvement. I thought it noteworthy that he thanked the evangelical community and pledged to do away with the 501c3 government control of churches. Not that churches would actually change for the better. It was also remarkable that he came out vocally against globalism. Pence may turn out to be a good VP but I wouldn't want him as President.

This is the most critical election in my lifetime. This is not the usual NWO globalist one or NWO globalist two choice. It's literally the difference between survival and the final death of the American Republic. Christians of all people had better not sit out this election. Trump must receive enough votes to give him a large enough majority so that the globalists cannot use voter fraud to steal the election for Clinton. This country is really sick for a psychopathic criminal like Hillary to even have a chance of winning. Now if only Trump can dodge any potential CIA assassin bullets from their mind controlled operatives. I doubt they would do another JFK type hit as it would be too obvious.

---------------------

"It is one of these things that you don't have to like voting for Trump, you can even hate Trump, but you better be sure that you understand what a Hillary Clinton presidency brings."


Eric Metaxas: Why Christians Should Vote for Donald Trump

New York Times bestselling author and radio host Eric Metaxas explained Monday why he thinks conservative Christians should vote for Donald Trump.

Metaxas, the author of the recently released book If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, was interviewed by The Daily Caller's Casey Harper at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and spent most of the interview discussing the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

As a number of conservative evangelicals are still trying to decide whether to vote for the thrice-married real estate mogul or stay true to the #NeverTrump movement, Metaxas asserted that the consequences of not voting for Trump could be disastrous for the future of America.

Metaxas wrote in his book that the United States is in grave danger of becoming "America in name only," stressing that the election of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will only help make that danger a reality.

"If Hillary Clinton is elected, I do not believe that we will get a second chance," Metaxas said. "We are at the edge …"

Fearing that Clinton would nominate liberal Supreme Court justices who would "legislate from the bench," Metaxas warned that the Democrats are trying to keep an open border and allow illegal immigration so that the country will never "be able to demographically elect somebody who is a constitutionalist again."

"We are just not going to have the numbers," he said. "It's that desperate."

"We need to understand that if you care about this country, you care about the rest of the world, you need to take this election very seriously," he added. "Beyond that, I don't think Trump is going to save America. I think Trump would pull us back five feet from the cliff so that we have bought ourselves a little time to keep the republic. I think if Hillary Clinton is elected, we are not going to have that ability."

7:15 PM - L.A. Times Advocates Violent Overthrow of Government if Trump Becomes President

Isn't this sedition? Where is Homeland Security? The only problem with this  proposal is that the military is by far pro-Trump. The radical left are too cowardly to do anything themselves but give orders for others to do their dirty work.

L.A. Times Suggests Military Coup Against President Trump

Jamie Kirchick, writing in the Los Angeles Times, asks readers to imagine a military coup against a future President Donald Trump — and argues why one would be necessary.

Kirchick goes on to argue that Trump is a nascent authoritarian, whose illegal military orders — such as torturing terrorists — the military would be required to ignore, and then resist by force.

Kirchick concludes that unless voters stop Trump from becoming president, a violent coup may be the only solution: “Trump is not only patently unfit to be president, but a danger to America and the world. Voters must stop him before the military has to.”

8:54 AM - Media and Government Silent About Turkey's Lockdown of US Nuclear Base

US airmen, nuclear arms still under siege in Turkey's Incirlik airbase

Some 1,500 US airmen and their families have been locked in the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik together with a stock of tactical nuclear bombs since President Reccep Erdogan crushed an attempted coup on Saturday, July 16.

This extraordinary situation, reported here by debkafile's military sources, whereby a large group of American military personnel are held virtual captive by an allied government, was almost certainly raised in the phone call that took place Tuesday between President Barack Obama and Erdogan.

But the most outlandish aspect of this affair is that no American official has raised it in public – nor even by the administrations most vocal critics at the Republican convention which nominated Donald Trump as presidential candidate.

The situation only rated a brief mention in some Russian publications under the heading: "Turkish investigators enter & search Incirlik air base where US nukes are housed." Our military sources report that deep bunkers located near the base's running strips house B61 tactical nuclear gravity bombs.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a stirring address to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, but failed to endorse Donald Trump, telling Americans to "vote your conscience."

He urged voters: "Please: don't stay home in November." But then he added: "If you love our country, and love your children as much as I know that you do, vote your conscience."

11:21 PM - Quote for Today

There is no place in our nation for the kind of armed revolution our forefathers mounted against a tyrannical Great Britain. Such an act would be futile and tragic. We are no longer dealing with a distant, imperial king but with a tyrant of our own making: a militarized, technologized, heavily-financed bureaucratic machine that operates beyond the reach of the law.

The message being sent to the citizenry is clear: there will be no revolution, armed or otherwise.It does not matter how long you think you can hold out by relying on survivalist skills, guerilla tactics and sheer grit. The government has the resources to outwait, out-starve, outman, outgun and generally overpower you.

If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.

6:36 PM - How Hillsong and Brian Houston are Destroying Christianity

The professing church is filled with charlatans. Men and women who care about fame, fortune, and popularity. This pervasive evil has crept its way into even the most solid of churches, leading people astray, into the darkness of a counterfeit Christianity–one that has a form of godliness, but denies its power. If you want to see true Christianity destroyed, reject Christ's warnings against fraudulent, lawless men. One such degenerate man is co-founder and CEO of Hillsong Church, Brian Houston.

Houston has single-handedly destroyed Christianity in Australia. He has been relentlessly pushing the idea through his new TBN sponsored television network, The Hillsong Channel, as well as through his books, that he is an extraordinary, God-ordained, faith-filled leader. He really wants you to believe this. So much so, that he's willing to go to any extreme to silence and destroy anyone who disagrees with him.

6:34 PM - Rodney Howard Browne Leading Children to Demons

Little Girl Blasphemes God, Calls Down the Rain

If you've never heard of Rodney Howard Browne, that's probably a good thing. His church, in Tampa, FL, is a New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) charismatic church that regularly blasphemes the Holy Spirit. Recently, at Browne's church, a little girl that appears to be about 12 years old took the stage to "preach" to the congregation. During the seven minute video, this girl repeatedly tells her audience to "be a funnel," and to hold their hands up in the air, because they can't receive the water unless your "funnel is open."

There is no mention at all of Jesus Christ in this so-called sermon. This entire charade is pure blasphemy. You can see the audience getting into it, while Browne, himself, is standing on the stage directing this young child into this sinful idolatry. He tells her to "speak in tongues," in which she began to babble the same, unintelligible nonsense over and over, in what appears to be a drunken stupor with her eyes squinted and a peculiar slurred speech (did they slip something in her drink?), while she was cheered on, and told that this is "how it's done," and "what it's about."

11:07 PM - God’s Warning? “Heat” Shuts Down Apostate ‘Together 2016’ Event

Personal note: I probably won't be as active on here this week as I will be watching much of the GOP convention online free of TV network's mass media talking idiots.

-------------------------

The heavily marketed, highly touted, and Scripture-denying "Together 2016" event was held on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Saturday, July 16. Thousands gathered on the mall and watched by live stream for the purported purpose to pray for Jesus to "reset" the country and their lives.

The stream of celebrity evangelical "leaders," pastors and musicians across the stage was essentially a who's who of heresy. For the discerning believer who may have tuned in, markedly absent from the frenzy was a sense of reverence for a Holy God to whom appeals were being made to "fix our problems." Oh yeah, the real Gospel was conspicuously absent too.

Of course, the discerning believer will have recognized the real Jesus from the multitude of fictional ones being called upon from the stage's center circle. The real Jesus would have not twisted Scripture to claim for America promises intended His chosen nation Israel. The real Jesus would not have bellowed out a repentance-free message of love, hope, and personal fulfillment. The real Jesus would not have jerked verses out of Scripture, encouraging listeners to name them and claim them for His, and their own, glory.

10:55 PM - Warning About TruNews and Rick Wiles

Rick Wiles is a gifted and convincing speaker. He can deliver a simple salvation message that is quite good but his numerous false prophecies and those of his past radio show guests is well documented. Perhaps in an effort to gain credibility and widen his audience his programming this year has changed from focusing on dreams, visions, prophecies, and fear mongering to primarily a news/analysis outlet. He still interviews guests. Evidently he is having more success. In discussing current news events he has two sidekicks with him who I know very little about, Doc Burkhard and Edward Szall. I have found his news analysis to be mostly good so far. But his charismatic false endtime theology persists. When Wiles is away and his co-hosts take over the daily program is much better.

Wiles of course is a product of the TBN religious network of apostasy where he worked before starting his own organization. He carries Jim Bakker's show on his own network. Ex-PTL Club head Bakker sells overpriced preparedness supplies on his show of gloom and doom. He now blames witches for his old ministry's downfall instead of himself. If you listen to Wiles long enough you can't help but notice how prideful and arrogant he is. Evidently he believes in Christian dominionism and replacement theology. I recently heard him dogmatically state there will be never ever be a third temple for Israel. With that statement he wipes out a major portion of Bible prophecy for the Great Tribulation. 


He is a post tribulationalist who hates the rapture with a passion. He now refers to the pre-trib rapture as Darbyism. Even a little time in research easily proves that John Darby did not invent the pre-trib doctrine as it far pre-dates Darby. Which begs the question. Is he knowingly deceiving others or is he that deceived himself? If he can't even get simple facts about pre-trib history right how can be trusted with current news and analysis?

In recent days his website has undergone a flashy upgrade.
He claims he will begin broadcasting TV very soon. A month or two ago he put up a free streaming music/video service. A few of the video programs are good, like John Ankerberg. Most of it I haven't checked out. The music streams are for the most part awful and just feeds the flesh like any typical music service. Even secular rock music is included. Most of the Christian streams are contemporary.

Wiles' daily program, delayed by one day, is broadcast over a powerful domestic shortwave radio station being continuously repeated along with the Jim Bakker show. Weekends contemporary Christian music is broadcast. Being easily assessable by me at mealtimes and while doing kitchen work I listen to his daily news reports and sometimes quality guests. That is until he gets on his false teaching rants and I turn him off. He never prefaces Christian doctrine that can be considered controversial with "I believe" but always comes across with a dogmatic I am right and you are wrong attitude.


Below is an interesting post I found about Rick Wiles by somebody on a cult forum dated 2009. From all I know about him I don't doubt it's veracity. But whether Wiles is a genuine Christian or not is not for me to decide.

I want to issue a warning about the host/owner of Trunews Christian radio show at www.trunews.com. Some of you might have heard of him. He has over 100,000 listeners, but he is a con artist and not a Christian man. My husband and I donated $11.000 for a tent/church project, and actually moved to Florida to help Rick Wiles start a church in Ft Pierce, FL. about 9 months ago. Within 3 weeks we discovered he was a fraud, and was not going to start a church, but used my husband, who is a reputable minister and subject matter expert on emergency preparedness, as a marketing tool to gain hefty donations. He is very controlling, manipulative, and gifted speaker. That all happened 10 months ago, and now we were contacted by a pastor in Kenya who Rick's daughter was supporting, and they told us that Rick Wiles ordered his daughter to stop supporting their 400 orphans because he refused to be bulldozed by Rick Wiles and commit fraud for him. You can read the entire story on our ministry website. We try to help the spiritually abused folks. Anyway, this man actually is so smooth and so convincing that he has people convinced over the radio that the Kenyan pastor is a thief, and that he (Rick) is justifiable in his stopping support for orphans.

We have been exposing this man as a fraud for months, and in return he has slandered our names publicly, telling everyone my husband is a Russian spy, not a real doctor, a communist, etc. He uses lies like candy to control his listeners. He is very persuasive and so we want anyone out there to beware of this wolf who steals and cons money off of the less fortunate. He has reputable guests on his radio show, which allow for him to come acrossed like he is a good guy but he is far from good.

Finally here is a short
exposé of Wiles I haven't seen before. Be sure to read the reader comments also. In 2014 Wiles announced that he would terminate TruNews to focus on helping Christians spiritually. Instead it's been expanded. He is always saying one thing and doing another.

If you choose to listen to him do so with a very discerning spirit and mind. The enemy of truth never comes with 100% poison. Lies are often diluted with so much truth as to be unrecognizable to the undiscerning. But as the Bible says, "A little leaven (sin, false doctrine) leavens the whole lump." Galations 5:9

10:58 AM - Will the Circle Be Unbroken?

Words by Ada R. Habershon, 1861-1918. Sung by Joe Mullins and the Issacs. Joe hosts a weekly syndicated bluegrass gospel show on select radio stations. This acapella version is the best I've ever heard. Do listen to and read the words. But they may not mean much to Christians coming from a rough background.

For those that enjoy bluegrass gospel listed here are a couple of radio stations streaming it online. I'm sure there are others.

This station is all bluegrass gospel when preaching, teaching, and commercials are not on.
WIGN - 1550 AM Bluegrass Radio and Music Bristol, TN

This PBS station carries 4 hours of bluegrass gospel every Sunday. Their Resurrection Day program is outstanding. I'll try to mention it next year. The focus is on modern bluegrass, with the traditional mixed in, but much of it is acapella. A token amount of black gospel is included. Saturday afternoons there are several hours of mostly secular bluegrass.
Gospel Truth with Dennis Jones - Traditional and Contemporary Bluegrass Gospel music from 6:00 am till 10:00 am eastern time Sunday mornings.

There are loved ones in the glory,
Whose dear forms you often miss;
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?

Refrain
Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
In a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

In the joyous days of childhood,
Oft they told of wondrous love,
Pointed to the dying Savior
Now they dwell with Him above.

Refrain

You remember songs of heaven
Which you sang with childish voice,
Do you love the hymns they taught you,
Or are songs of earth your choice?

Refrain

You can picture happy gatherings
Round the fireside long ago,
And you think of tearful partings,
When they left you here below:

Refrain

One by one their seats were emptied,
One by one they went away;
Here the circle has been broken—
Will it be complete one day?

Refrain
