Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity in lieu of watered-down, entertainment oriented churchianity. 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. Ryle

7:16 PM - The Family Who Prays

Thanksgiving day is the last Christian day left in America that hasn't been completely corrupted by greed and paganism. If you are saved and know it without a doubt there is so much to be grateful for no matter how near the storm clouds are getting. And especially if have a Christian family.

Of all the blessings I have known in life being born into a Christian family on both sides of my parents has been second only to salvation. Most of my greater family is now on the other side waiting for my great reunion with them.

In my lifetime the family has been so severely torn down by government, society, and even churches. May God bless those that remain. For those without Christian families take comfort in the fact that all believers are in God's great family that spans every earthly division.

The Christian Family
...But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD. - Joshua 24:15

7:16 PM - Churches Dividing Families

Young filmmaker, Philip Leclerc, notices that the youth of his generation are abandoning the faith. He sets out on a journey to discover the truth about modern youth ministry, with this question in mind: "Is it an issue with the church, the kids, the parents?"

Interviewing youth, youth ministry experts, and pastors and understanding the history of age-segregated youth ministry, Leclerc learns that modern youth ministry is not founded upon the Word of God but upon the ideas of men. As a result, youth ministries are noticing a widespread youth exodus as kids abandon the faith for the world.

11:40 AM - Thanksgiving Quotes

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
H. U. Westermayer

Thanksgiving is a time when the world gets to see just how blessed and how workable the Christian system is. The emphasis is not on giving or buying, but on being thankful and expressing that appreciation to God and to one another...Christmas is the antithesis of Thanksgiving. Christmas is pretty much a man-made holiday.
John Clayton

The whole life of a Christian should be nothing but praises and thanks to God; we should neither eat nor sleep, but eat to God and sleep to God and work to God and talk to God, do all to His glory and praise.
Richard Sibbes

That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Psalm 26:7

11:37 AM - Man Arrested for Aiming Banana at Cops

It gets more ludicrous everyday. And we are supposed to trust our lives to people that can't tell the difference between a gun and a banana? They are supposed to be professionally trained. The man is lucky to still be alive for doing such a stupid thing these days.

Mesa County deputies Joshua Bunch and Donald Love said they feared for their lives after they "observed what appeared to be a yellow tube with a black center."

10:45 AM - The Lesson of Ferguson: Obey or Die

The powers that rule believe in never letting a good crisis go to waste so they will use it for all it's worth. There's a lot more going on here than meets the eye...more than just obeying government officials as gods, whether right or wrong.

We Are the Enemy: Is This the Lesson of Ferguson?
By John W. Whitehead
November 24, 2014
https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/we_are_the_enemy_is_this_the_lesson_of_ferguson


A Message to Ferguson: You Are Fighting The Wrong Battle

The events which unfolded overnight gave birth to numerous images from a new Amerika, very different from the America everyone has historically been told exists. Some men in the street said the scene reminded them of a third world banana republic.

But what happened in Ferguson had a lot less to do with race than many think. Instead, it had to do with a different sort of "Ism" - statism. Statism does not care about whether you are black, a woman, a white male, a cat, it will kill you, steal from you, lie to you in a truly equal manner. In that way, the government is great at equality.

But without government it would be disorder and chaos... right?

10:42 AM - Atlanta Fire Chief Ousted For Writing Christian Book

Atlanta is the homosexual center of the south.

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

Atlanta's fire chief has been suspended without pay for writing a book one year ago that discusses his Christian beliefs. In addition to the suspension, Chief Kevin Cochran was ordered to take "sensitivity training" while being suspended.
What's got city officials so riled up is that his book espouses traditional Christian beliefs, specifically believing homosexuality is a sin. Nether WSB, a local TV affiliate, or the Atlanta Journal-Constitution could fine a single case of a  firefighter complaining about discrimination based on sexual orientation.

7:11 PM - Bible Verse for Today

And now the prize awaits me--the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.

7:10 PM - The Crown Rapture Scoffers Will Miss

Crown of Righteousness: For Love of Christ's Return

Dr. Joe Temple

(brief excerpt from full study)

Promised to Those Who Love His Appearing

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. - 2 Timothy 4:8

What the Apostle is saying is, “I have loved the appearing of the Lord. Because I have loved the appearing of the Lord, I have fought a good fight; I have finished the course; I have kept the faith.” I love the way he mentions this. You see, he did not say to you, “Now, if you fight a good fight you will receive the Crown of Righteousness.” He did not say, “If you run a good race, you will receive the Crown of Righteousness.” He did not say, “If you keep the faith, you will receive the Crown of Righteousness.” He says, “If you love His appearing, you will.” Every man who loves the appearing of the Lord will receive the crown, because you cannot love His appearing without fighting a good fight. You cannot love His appearing without running a good race. You cannot love His appearing without guarding the faith..

Look at the phrase “love His appearing,” as I remind you that the word “love” is the divine word for love, the deepest, the highest. That is the reason why the Amplified Version, among others, translates the phrase “and not to me only, but unto all them also that love and yearn and long for his appearing.” The translators wanted you to know that it is not a mere matter of giving lip service to the truth of the coming of the Lord. It is not a matter of saying, as I heard a preacher say just the other day, “I believe Jesus is coming, but I do not think people ought to get so excited about it. I hardly even say anything about it,” he said. He gave lip service. He believed it. I said to him, “Friend, I cannot talk that way about it because I love His appearing. I long, I yearn, for the coming of the Lord.” Because I do, I am going to receive the Crown of Righteousness..

6:50 PM - Rapture and the Straw Man Deception

Nov 1 2014

For those not familiar with the term “straw man,” it is a scheme of describing or defining someone else’s view incorrectly, often making the person’s belief an easy subject to ridicule. Time and time again the straw man device is used to discredit the Rapture.

A favorite approach is to depict those who believe in the return of Christ for His bride, the church, as those who believe they have a guaranteed ticket to Heaven and they therefore can live anyway they want to because they are all going to be with Christ at His return. Added to that is the idea that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture belief is simply an escapist belief that attempts to avoid the seven-year Tribulation. Certainly the “ticket” has been fully paid for by Jesus, providing eternal security for the believer, but the straw man misrepresents both the true view of a believer in the Rapture as well as what the Scriptures teach.

The straw man deception is quite often successful today because fewer and fewer Christians are Bereans. Too often Christians believe much of what they hear without checking it out by searching what the Bible actually says (Acts 17:11). If they would do that they would see the obvious con job by the straw man creators. For example, consider the following verses that destroy the “straw man” by underscoring the purifying aspect in the lives of those who eagerly look forward to the rapture.

And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. —1 John 2:28

[You] who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial [genuineness] of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. —1 Peter 1:5-7

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. —2 Timothy 4:7-8

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. —1 Thessalonians 5:23

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. —Titus 2:13

8:17 PM - Will The Master Find You Watching?

"Jesus is coming soon!" they have boldly proclaimed. And the truth is, people in each generation before us, who were convinced that they would be the last, were obviously wrong.

We've heard all of this before and most have grown weary and tired of any conversation or warnings about end times:

"My preacher doesn't preach about it, the Sunday school teacher doesn't teach about it, so why should I even think about it? Weren't we told that no man  would know the day or hour? That ought to settle it. And Hal Lindsey, is he even still living? Hand me the remote please!"

Hold on, don't change that channel just yet. Can we really know? Are we really at the very end of days? It's an important question and one I believe the Bible answers clearly, so let's begin...

Jesus gave us an important end-time prophecy shortly before His crucifixion, which is recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. Jesus' disciples wanted to know what to watch for...

"Tell us when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matthew 24:3).

Jesus responded with a somber warning: "Watch out that no one deceives you." Jesus knew that His answer held eternal consequences and wasn't suggesting that we be passive spectators. No, He was commanding us to stay wide awake as we watch for certain signs—clear indications that would alert us to His soon return.

Tetanus is a relatively rare disease in America. It's easily avoided by thoroughly washing all wounds. I haven't had a tetanus booster in 30 years after a significant reaction to that one. And I seem to be habitually cutting and sticking myself with one thing or another. Besides it has been documented that the vaccinated get tetanus too. This new vaccine induced disease is good news for the pharmaceuticals. Now they can market a new drug for another disease they have created. Anybody that takes a vaccine these days is just asking for trouble.

GOP Leaders Secretly Trying To Fund Obama’s Amnesty Decree

November 14, 2014

No… your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Republican leaders have just been caught red-handed. They SAY they’re doing everything in their power to stop Barack Obama’s lawless and unconstitutional amnesty decree, BUT they’re also meeting behind closed doors with Democratic leaders, at this very moment, to give Obama the funds he needs to execute that lawless and unconstitutional order.

“The federal government is currently funded through a continuing resolution that runs out at midnight on December 11. Salmon, echoing similar calls from Republican senators Jeff Sessions of Alabama and Mike Lee of Utah, proposes that Congress pass a bill that would fund the government until early next year. If the president moves ahead with his executive amnesty, the expiring continuing resolution would give Republicans an opportunity to block funding for the president’s action after both houses of Congress are under Republicans’ control. But that plan has a tough road ahead. Republican leadership in the House is eager to pass a spending bill through the 2015 fiscal year before the start of the new Congress. Members from both parties on both sides of the Capitol began formally meeting last Tuesday to negotiate the details of an omnibus spending bill.”
Senator Jeff Sessions

Republicans Block Bill to Reign in NSA Spying on Americans


The USA Freedom Act effectively died on the Senate floor last night, failing to garner the 60 votes needed to move to full debate.

The legislation would have ended the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of domestic phone call records, so-called metadata.

"We got 58 votes out of 100 senators. Normally, that would be enough to pass a bill, but the Republican leader wanted it filibustered and wanted it blocked, didn’t want to have amendments, didn’t want to go forward."

3:32 PM - Muslims Chant for Allah at National Cathedral

It looked like a chilling scene from a Last Days, anti-Christ-takes-over-the-world disaster movie. Hundreds of Muslims take over America's most notable church, prostrate on their prayer rugs as their unified chant echoes out in full volume: "There is only one god, he begets not and I bear witness that Muhammad is His only servant and Apostle."

Only this was not a movie. This was the scene, last Friday, for the first time in history, at the iconic National Cathedral in Washington, where orthodox Muslim clerics were invited to lead an Islamic prayer service. A congregation of hundreds were lead by an Imam in declaring that "god has no son, that Jesus Christ cannot be his son, and that there is no god like Allah."

Only a single middle-age woman jumped up in the middle of the service and shouted, "America was founded on Christian principles. . . . Leave our church alone!" She was escorted quickly out of the church by security guards.

11:01 AM - Hating the Pre-Trib Rapture is Not a Light Matter

Friendly disagreement is one thing but hate is entirely different. Just look how many people in alternative media are preaching a gospel of preparedness, and also profiting from it, instead of the soon coming of Jesus. Most Christians are going to be completely unprepared to meet Jesus. These people, maybe even without realizing it, are falling in line with the heresies of the one world emerging church system.

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

Evangelical bookstores typically feature many writers who hate the doctrine of an imminent Rapture of the saints, in spite of the fact that it is plainly described in Paul's writings and the early saints were living in expectation of it.

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh" (Matthew 24:44).

"For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come" (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10).

James and Peter and John also taught that the Lord's coming is at hand.

"Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door" (Jam. 5:9).

"But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto  prayer" (1 Pet. 4:7).

"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand" (Rev. 1:3).

In contrast, consider the following heretical statements against the imminent return of Christ:

10:58 AM - Spiritual Ebola Should Be Our Main Concern

Our children are bleeding out the eyes and ears. It is not blood that they are emitting, but heritage. Very few of our children really understand the Gospel of the Kingdom and what it's impact is supposed to be on the world. We have turned Christianity into a personal life-style choice.

There is no other way to explain what is going on. The American Church is hemorrhaging. The foundation upon which all morality springs is cracking like an egg. If Christians can no longer recognize or defend the truth we can expect the blood-letting to continue. Only a super-sized moral tourniquet can stop the oozing from the body of America.

Somewhere along the line we stopped thinking generationally. We failed to pass along to our children's children the Rock of Ages upon which our nation was anchored. As a result, our nation is wobbling, struggling to find it's footing on the sinking-sand of humanism. Our nation is suffering from Spiritual Ebola.

Ebola attacks the immune system. It stops the body from functioning properly. It is not the Ebola that eventually kills but the failure of the immune system to properly fight it off. For generations Christianity was the American immune system. Only recently, since it has been removed from the education of our children, has evil been able to run so unopposed.

10:56 AM - Eating Organic and at Home is Not an Option Anymore

Unless in your future you want to supply the medical mafia with more business from your toxin induced illnesses. Organic foods can often be found greatly reduced. Just this week I purchased 10lbs. of organic potatoes for just $5.98 at a major grocery store. They had begun to sprout and turn green but if I just peel a little deeper they are perfectly fine. Some regular produce is low in pesticides. You just have to know that to avoid. Potatoes are one of the worst offenders. I haven't eaten out in 30 years and have no regrets. But now it's a silent minefield in fast food joints compared to then.

6:54 PM - Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Plan To Destroy All Christian Churches

If nothing else has been proof enough this article and the documentary video on a subsequent post should be the final proof of which side Rick Warren is working for.

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

Church Transitions, an associate of Saddleback Church in California, trains the clique initiating the change in eight published steps. The church membership is not to be informed of the transition until the fourth step. After the sixth step in the process of change, if there are some in the church who voice concerns, the following is suggested:

1.  Identify those who are resisting the changes;
2.  Assess the effectiveness of their opposition;
3.  Befriend those who are undecided about the changes;
4.  Marginalize more persistent resisters;
5.  Vilify those who stay and fight; and
6.  Establish new rules that will silence all resistance.

Signs your church is under attack.

1. Change in music to a contemporary rock style.
2. Removal of hymn books; eliminating the choir.
3. Replacement of organ and piano with heavy metal instruments.
4. Repetitive singing of praise lyrics.
5. Dressing down to casual and informal attire.
6. Eliminating of business meetings, church committees, council of elders, board of deacons, etc.
7. The pastor, or a new leader with a few assistants, usually four, takes charge of all church business.
8. A repetitive 40-day Purpose Driven Church study program stressing psychological relationships with each other, the community, or the
     world, begins.
9. Funded budgeted programs are abandoned, or ignored, with ambiguous financial reports made.
10. Sunday morning, evening, and/or Wednesday prayer meetings are changed to other times; some may even be eliminated.
11. Sunday School teachers are moved to different classes, or replaced by new teachers more sympathetic with the changes being
       implemented.
12. The name "Sunday School" is dropped and classes are given new names.
13. Crosses and other traditional Christian symbols may be moved from both the inside and outside of the church buildings. The pulpit
       may also be removed.
14. In accordance with Dr. Warren’s instructions, new version Bibles are used; or only verses flashed on a screen are referenced during
       regular services.
15. Purpose Driven Church films, purchased from Saddleback, precede or are used during regular services.
16. The decor, including the carpets, may be changed to eliminate any resemblance to the former church.
17. The word "church" is often taken from the name of the church, and the church may be called a "campus". Denominational names
       may also be removed.
18. An emphasis on more fun and party sessions for the youth.
19. Elimination of altar calls or salvation invitations at the close of the services.
20. The elimination of such words as "unsaved", "lost", "sin", "Hell", "Heaven" and other Gospel verities from the pastor’s messages.
21. The reclassification of the saved and lost to the "churched" and the "unchurched".
22. The marginalizing, or ostracizing, of all who are not avid promoters of the new Purpose Driven Program.
23. Closed meetings between the pastor or chosen staff members without any reports made to the general membership.
24. Open hostility to members who do not openly embrace the new program, or who may have left for another church.

7:01 PM - Time to Get Back to New Testament Christianity

Bible based Christianity is the only real kind there is. All this other spiritual crap in churches that masquerades for it is from the pit of hell. Satan does his worst damage within the church and he is good at using the Bible to help do it. His version of it that is.

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

As you can see, the disciples never failed to rock the boat, upset the masses, cause divisions, and spark controversy and mayhem. If that was the standard response to the early disciples and their ministry, perhaps we ought to be asking ourselves what sort of response we are getting.

Moreover, just like John the Baptist and Jesus, the early disciples preached repentance. Repentance was their major theme, along with warning about wrath to come. Recall that Jesus often spoke about repentance, and he spoke far more about hell than heaven. The early disciples did the same. In fact, not once did the disciples include the love of God in their preaching. It was always a call to repentance, and to flee the wrath to come.

6:56 PM - America's Spineless Christian Men

Cowardice and genuine Christianity are incompatible. The reason America's pulpits and pews are filled with cowards is because they aren't Christians. They only carry a meaningless label.

If men won't proclaim Jesus as Lord, AND LIVE LIKE IT, then God will use women. If not women he will use children. But one way or another the message of the truth of Jesus as Lord will get out and our godless government can do nothing to silence it. They will try but never fully succeed. Not even with their concentration camps awaiting occupancy.

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

I have said this before, and I will keep saying it until I see some real changes taking place around here: Where are all the godly, courageous men of faith? Why do they seem to be an endangered species? Why is it that whenever some crisis comes up that demands Christian action and bravery, it is Christian women who lead the charge?

Praise God for these fearless and totally committed Christian women. But I sure wish we had some Christian men to join their ranks. I am ashamed to be a Christian male to be honest, when so often I see courageous women standing up and being counted, while all the pansy girly-men cower behind their skirts.

Enough already! We need some men with backbone – men with some Holy Ghost boldness to take back what the devil has stolen. Enough of all these wimps for Jesus and spineless wonders. Now more than ever we need real men – real Christian men – to stand, to fight, and to do valiantly for our God.

My reason for writing this is because once again, the church of Jesus Christ is under direct Satanic attack, and it takes a brave Christian woman to make a godly stance. Where are all the Christian men? I speak to your shame! Stop all this cowardliness and start acting like soldiers of Jesus Christ.

6:51 PM - Woman Proclaiming Jesus as Lord Ejected from National Cathedral

The National Cathedral is a den of demons. I wonder if it has ever been a real Christian church.

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

Woman interrupts Muslim service at National Cathedral: 'Jesus Christ is Lord'

"Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We have built enough of your mosques in this country. Why don't you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? …America was founded on Christian principles…Leave our church alone!"

6:48 PM - Tidal Wave of Homosexual Perversion to Flood Churches

Another CCM artist admits she is homosexual. How many more are there still in hiding? Will they be the final destructive force that silences all churches?

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

Churches warned: 'Tidal wave of gay theology' looming

Evangelist sued for Bible preaching sees lesbian worship singer as harbinger

An evangelical Christian worship singer who has been urging churches to change their doctrine on homosexual behavior since announcing she is a lesbian is at the forefront of a coming tidal wave of "infiltration" of the church by promoters of the "gay" agenda, contends evangelical attorney, evangelist and activist Scott Lively.

Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, said that with insiders on the offensive such as Vicky Beeching, a British-born artist who has become popular among evangelicals in the U.S., he expects "attacks on Christians in America like we've never seen before."

He explained that after the Stonewall riots in 1969, homosexual activists banded together to oppose every American institution that did not fully accept and promote homosexual behavior.

The first victory was over the American Psychiatric Association, and within 40 years, every other group had been conquered, he said. The Boy Scouts were the latest to fall, just a year ago.

Now, the only organization left is the church, he said.

"All of their battle-hardened activists and enormous resources are all directed at the church," he said.

6:44 PM - The Crucifixion of Pastor Scott Lively

“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”
­ John 15:20

Christians, pastors, take heed. In case you haven’t noticed, times are a-changin’. Whether at home or abroad, if you follow God’s command to speak biblical truth in all things, most especially, it seems, on matters of sex and sexuality, you will be persecuted.

“A servant is not greater than his master.”

I don’t presume to compare my friend Scott Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries to Jesus Christ. None of us can compare, even remotely, to the one and only God-man ­ to the Lord of the universe and exclusive path to eternal salvation. That said, Pastor Lively is one of the most “Christ-like” people I’ve had the honor to know.

As did Christ, Scott Lively speaks absolute truth, in absolute love, with absolutely no fear of personal destruction or even death. He loves everyone, whether friend or foe, Christian or pagan, straight or “gay.”

6:43 PM - The Medical Shadow Government

by Jon Rappoport

Over the last 50 years, tireless researchers have uncovered and revealed the existence of various elites that control governments and populations:

Banks, super-banks, the military-industrial complex, intelligence agencies, psyop propagandists, Wall Street, and so forth and so on.

For some reason, these researchers, many of them, have a blind spot when it comes to the ongoing operations of a shadow medical government.

Blind spot. And also fear. Fear of criticism and ridicule for exposing sacred sacraments of society—like vaccination.

Like psychiatry.

Like (phony) epidemics.

This tells you how strong and pervasive the pro-medical propagandists are. How much media power they wield. How much science they can fabricate. How thoroughly they can discredit and exile their critics, when those critics cut too close to the bone and expose too much truth.

Truth?

For example: by conservative assessment, the US medical system kills 225,000 people a year like clockwork. Which comes out to 2.25 million American killings per decade. (Barbara Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”)

9:14 AM - The Inadequacy of Experience

Personal experience can be a great learning tool in the spiritual realm but ONLY if it is viewed in light of God's Word. Otherwise it can literally lead people to eternal damnation even though they think they are okay. Nothing should ever trump the Word of God. It is the embodiment of truth.

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

Only if we are exposed to the Word of God, the Bible [regularly], will we be able to see the world as it actually is. All human theories have blind spots, and those who adhere to them do not realize all the theories they think true—on which they rely—are full of holes. Literally, men just can't see the truth because of their blind spots.

9:01 AM - The United Holographic States of America

By Paul McGuire

There is a convergence of unprecedented events coming to America and the world that will go into a kind of hyper-drive in 2015 or soon after. It is difficult to set exact dates because there are various forces which can change the dynamic. The important point is that none of these geopolitical, economic, scientific, technological, or sociological forces are due to random chance or accidents. The primary drivers are globally and socially engineered forces planned by a scientific elite. This elite manipulates economies, food prices, social structures, and what could be called the mass or collective consciousness of the American people through science and technology that most people have no idea exists.

What we now call America is simply a kind of holographic projection of consciousness and interdimensional forces by this elite along with the mass mind or "hive mind" of the collective… the collective consciousness. To use a term coined by the Canadian MKULTRA psychiatrist, Dr. Cameron, the national "hive mind" and the global "hive mind" have been produced by processes such as "depatterning." Dr. Cameron conducted experiments on "patients" in a psychiatric hospital where he would literally wipe their minds clean through powerful psychiatric drugs, electroshock therapy, and playing endless hours of
hypnotic audio tapes that essentially erased people's minds so that he could program them the way he wanted to.

Prior to 1950, America was primarily a nation which held to some form of Christian values, patriotism, traditional family values, capitalism, and a belief in right or wrong. However, after World War II, America brought into our nation Nazi mind control scientists under what was called Operation Paperclip, and in the early 1960s the Tavistock Institute launched a campaign from Great Britain to completely transform America through sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, and the mysticism of a tsunami of British rock bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and many others.

8:59 AM - The United States of Babylon

Is America end time Babylon? No other city/state/country even comes close to  the wickedness produced by America and exported worldwide. No other is so full of hypocrisy, allegedly defending freedom while enslaving and pillaging worldwide. No other has so turned it's back on God. And no other so deserving of the judgement of God.
