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
7:44 PM - Giving Thanks Should Be An Everyday Experience
Much of my physical life has been hard but my spiritual blessings have been beyond measure. As I look around at the multitude of blind sheeple that haven't got a clue as to what life is about and how they are being manipulated by the elite followers of Satan I cannot help but have an attitude of thanks everyday. Even most so-called Christians are following the same broad path to destruction. Very, very few genuine Christians are trying to follow the Lord first and foremost. God in his mercy chose to save me and give me light. Why me? I didn't deserve it, never did and never will. And I still mess up far too much but he doesn't give up working on me.
Give Thanks to God and Sing His Praises
by Nathele Graham
"Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!" (Psalm 107:8).
We learn at a young age to say "Thank You" for simple things like a cookie or a toy. Hopefully gratitude becomes a habit that carries over into our adult life. Children aren't always truly thankful and often feel they deserve a gift given to them, but still they need to learn to say those words of thanksgiving. So do Christians.
We should never take God's love for granted. Do you ever tell Him, "Thank You?"
King David wrote "...It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most high" (Psalm 92:1).
That almost seems like an understatement. It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord. It is a very, very, very good thing. God gives us the air we breathe, the water we drink, sunshine, jobs, food...everything comes from Him. He gave us our salvation. As His children, we need to thank Him more and complain less.
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD" (Psalm 150:6).
David knew how to praise God and the psalms are filled with gratitude for all He provides. You might think it was easy for David to be thankful because he was a king, but he had many troubles and fell short of honoring God many times.
King Saul wanted to kill him, his children were rebellious, he fought many battles with men and giants, and then there was that adultery incident where David made sure the woman's husband died in battle. That doesn't sound like a poster boy for honoring God!
David was human and had troubles just like we do today, but he always went to God for forgiveness and with praise. Many of the Psalms he wrote are filled with thanksgiving and praise. One of the most joyous psalms is the one he wrote after bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem.
Money and power of that magnitude will have an even greater influence within the FDA. Expect increasing assault on health freedom.
In Biggest Tax Evasion Scheme of Its Kind, Big Pharma Becomes Behemoth
Big Pharma just became Huge Pharma.
Creating the world's largest drugmaker—and paving the way for higher pharmaceutical prices—Viagra-maker Pfizer Inc. and Allergan PLC, which manufactures Botox, said Monday that they would merge in a so-called inversion deal worth up to about $155 billion.
The takeover "would be the largest inversion ever," according to the Wall Street Journal, allowing Pfizer to profit from a lower corporate tax rate in Allergan's home country of Ireland.
The LA Times reported that the deal "is likely to fuel critics' concerns that consumers would pay even more for drugs as competition declines among manufacturers, insurers and retailers."
As Gustav Ando, research director for the business information and consulting company IHS Life Sciences, told the Washington Post: "This merger isn't meant to benefit patients, it isn't meant to innovate in any kind of way...and certainly the benefits won't be passed on to consumers."
Addressing this aspect of the deal, presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Monday that the merger "would be a disaster for American consumers who already pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs."
What's more, Sanders added, "it also would allow another major American corporation to hide its profits overseas."
Objection is often raised—even by some sound in the faith—regarding the exposure of error as being entirely negative and of no real edification. Of late, the hue and cry has been against any and all negative teaching. But the brethren who assume this attitude forget that a large part of the New Testament, both of the teaching of our blessed Lord Himself and the writings of the apostles, is made up of this very character of ministry—namely, showing the Satanic origin and, therefore, the unsettling results of the propagation of erroneous systems which Peter, in his second epistle, so definitely refers to as "damnable heresies."
Our Lord prophesied, "Many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." Within our own day, how many false prophets have risen; and oh, how many are the deceived! Paul predicted, "I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch" (Acts 20:29-31). My own observation is that these "grievous wolves," alone and in packs, are not sparing even the most favored flocks. Undershepherds in these "perilous times" will do well to note the apostle's warning:
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers. (vs. 28)
It is as important in these days as in Paul's—in fact, it is increasingly important—to expose the many types of false teaching that, on every hand, abound more and more.
3:57 PM - Greg Laurie, Harvest America, and the Emerging Church
One world, one church, one apostasy. This is the inevitable result
of mass marketing the gospel, targeted solely toward the young, with works of the flesh. As far as I
know Greg Laurie is still preaching the Bible gospel message with
his mouth. But the unspoken message of a person's life does more
real preaching than his/her words. Laurie is up to his neck in
partnering with emerging church heretics and their false gospel of
Pastor Believes We're Living in the ‘Last Days.' And What He's About
to Do Could Make History
Pastor Greg Laurie has toured the nation and world with his popular
Harvest Crusades events — gatherings held over the past 25 years
during which he has collectively shared the Christian gospel with
millions and led hundreds of thousands to accept Jesus.
Known for Laurie’s compelling messages, the Harvest Crusades also
include performances from well-known Christian artists in an effort
to encourage Bible believers to bring their friends along to learn
more about the faith.
Laurie, 62, recently told TheBlaze that he’s taking what could be
the “boldest step” ever since launching the Harvest Crusades in 1990
— a major event slated to be held on March 6, 2016, at AT&T
Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
“We’ve taken bold steps of faith … perhaps the boldest step we’ve
taken of all is going to the AT&T stadium,” he said of the
event, titled, Harvest America. “[We thought], ‘Why don’t we try to
stage what could be the largest evangelistic event in American
Harvest America is a free nationwide simulcast event on March 6,
2016, featuring music from Chris Tomlin, MercyMe, and Switchfoot,
with a clear gospel message by Greg Laurie.
We are blessed to announce that Harvest America and Teen Challenge
(both USA and Global) are partnering to bring you Harvest America on
Sunday, March 6, 2016, live from Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. http://harvestamerica.com/
Chris Tomlin: King of Worship Music
Tomlin holds the unscriptural ecumenical philosophy that is typical
of the CCM crowd. Tomlin is a former staff member of Austin Stone
Community Church in Texas, which holds the emerging church
philosophy. Tomlin has a close association with Roman Catholicism.
Chris Tomlin, “the king of worship music,” is using his music to
build the one-world “church,” and nothing could be more unscriptural
and spiritually dangerous. http://www.wayoflife.org/index_files/chris_tomlin_king_of_worship_music.html
MercyMe is a rocking contemporary band that is ecumenical and
charismatic. MercyMe’s songs are used by fundamental Baptist
churches that have the philosophy of “adapting” contemporary music.
The band’s music has gotten progressively harder. The boisterous
rock & roll context of their “worship services” has caused even
their own lead singer and song writer Bart Millard to question
whether the “worship” at their concerts is really directed to the
Lord. Like the vast majority of the influential contemporary praise
musicians, MercyMe is radically ecumenical. In early 2011 they
included Roman Catholic Matt Maher on their Rock & Worship
Roadshow. MercyMe is also in the business of breaking down the walls
of separation from the world. http://www.wayoflife.org/index_files/mercy_me.html
Soulfest in Gilford, New Hampshire, one of the biggest contemporary
Christian music festivals, is Exhibit A that music is at the heart
of the one-world “church.” Since at least 2002, the festival has had
a Roman Catholic presence, and this year promises more of the same.
The August 6-8 festival will feature a daily Catholic Mass and
performances by Roman Catholic musician Matt Maher. Joining hands
with Rome this year are some of the most popular and influential CCM
groups and artists, including Big Daddy Weave, Switchfoot...Bands
and artists participating in past Soulfests include Skillet, Casting
Crowns, Family Force 5, Phil Joel, Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Camp, Jars
of Clay, Mercy Me...

Amazon.com bans investigative book 'Nobody Died at Sandy Hook' because it disagrees with government version of what happened
Amazon.com has just banned a book because of its contents. The book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook consists of analysis from a dozen contributor authors, and it's edited by Jim Fetzer, Ph.D. The book concludes that Sandy Hook was a staged FEMA drill carried out by the government to push an agenda of nationwide gun control.
This book was receiving 5-star reviews from Amazon readers.
3:56 PM - US Police Far Deadlier Than Muslim Terrorists
And by far most of the victims are white, something you won't hear on government news channels.
1000 US Citizens Killed by Police in 2015 – Over 3 Per Day
The Guardians effort to track fatal police shootings in the United States known as 'The Counted' has reached the 1000 mark today.
With an average of more than 3 Americans shot and killed by police per day, this shocking statistic should be a wake-up call to the gun-toting vigilante justice that's being trained into the United States police forces.
In a nation where it's citizens are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, the nation's police force operates as the judge, jury and executioner at least 3 times a day by taking the lives of citizens without any significant accountability for their actions.
As the world rushes to war over the tragic deaths of 129 people killed earlier this week in Paris, the United States police forces kill that many American citizens about every 40 days.
Why Are So Many Healthy People Dying from the Flu After Receiving the Flu Shot?
Another flu death of an otherwise healthy person after receiving the flu vaccine has been reported in Wisconsin.
WISN in Wisconsin is reporting that 26-year-old Katherine McQuestion has died from flu complications, after she received the flu shot. Katherine was reportedly a newlywed, and was required to receive the flu shot as part of her employment.
"On that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be remembered no more," declares the Lord Almighty. "I will remove both the prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land. And if anyone still prophesies, their father and mother, to whom they were born, will say to them, 'You must die, because you have told lies in the Lord's name.' Then their own parents will stab the one who prophesies. "On that day every prophet will be ashamed of their prophetic vision. They will not put on a prophet's garment of hair in order to deceive.
This prophecy has yet to be fulfilled but it is coming soon. Though in context it is directed at his chosen people and not to the Church it does show what God thinks of those that give out false dreams, visions, and prophecies in his name. It is literally taking his name in vain and the perpetrators of such will give a serious account of their lies.
1926-2015 “I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.” “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place,
your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your
redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search
any further for security.” “To be a follower of the Crucified means, sooner or later, a personal
encounter with the cross. And the cross always entails loss. The great
symbol of Christianity means sacrifice and no one who calls himself a
Christian can evade this stark fact.” “One does not surrender a life in an instant. That which is lifelong can only be surrendered in a lifetime.” “The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian knows that joy is found in self-abandonment." “It appears that God has deliberately left us in a quandary about many
things. Why did He not summarize all the rules in one book, and all the
basic doctrines in another? He could have eliminated the loopholes,
prevented all the schisms over morality and false teaching that have
plagued His Church for two thousand years. Think of the squabbling and
perplexity we would have been spared. And think of the crop of dwarfs He
would have reared! He did not spare us. He wants us to reach maturity.
He has so arranged things that if we are to go on beyond the “milk diet”
we shall be forced to think.”
One of the most influential Christian women of the 20th century, Elisabeth Elliot.
Elliot, the Christian author and speaker whose husband, Jim, was killed
during their short-lived but legendary missionary work among unreached
tribes in eastern Ecuador in the 1950s, passed away Monday at 88,
according to reports. She had been suffering from dementia.
She wrote two books about her husband’s martyrdom and the years she and
her newborn daughter spent living among the Aucas, the tribe that killed
him. Her Through Gates of Splendor ranked No. 9 on CT's list of the Top
50 books that have shaped evangelicals. The book became a bestseller,
as did Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testimony of Jim Elliot.
“Those became the definitive inspirational mission stories for the
second half of the 20th century,” said Kathryn Long, professor of
history at Wheaton College. “She really had a sense of her audience as
evangelicals, and she could tell this story in a way that keyed into
7:18 PM - Wanted: Real Churches for Real Christians
Letter to the Editor: Alone and Dismayed By Condition of Churches in a Midwest Town
Dear Lighthouse Trails Editors:
I live in the Midwest, and one would think that the apostate church has not infiltrated us here. Nothing could be further from the truth. My husband and I have stopped attending church due to previous churches attended now being mega seeker sensitive. Recently we decided to try two churches.
Joel Skousen wrote an extensive analysis of the Paris attacks and it's just what we already knew, government orchestrated terrorism. Very brief excerpts are below with an excellent video. I wouldn't be surprised to see Youtube remove it. The imbedded video link with Ken O'Keefe is also excellent.

WHO WAS BEHIND THE PARIS ATTACKS?
The multiple attacks in Paris on 13 November finally gave France and Europe their own 9/11 terror event, sufficient to justify the wholesale elimination of due process rights and civil liberties as well as justify a much larger military intervention in Syria. The Charlie Hebdo attacks in January paved the way but apparently weren’t destructive enough to justify what this latest attack did. Within a day French President Hollande was proposing changes to the constitution. This week I’ll take readers through the anomalies and contradictions that indicate how these attacks were not based on the notion of jihad, despite the fact that radical Islam is an inherently violent religious and revolutionary force. In fact, these attackers were not religious at all. Instead, their actions follow a criminal pattern that matches a host of government black operations fomenting terror in order to create change.
This was a complex attack requiring detailed training, preparation and coordination—and the more complex, the more likely the perpetrators are to leave telltale signs of their true purposes. There were a lot more people involved than just the terrorists, so don’t believe the official story that the authorities got to the core of the problem after capturing another terror cell in the shoot out at Saint-Denis. There is much more going on here than what is appears.
In reality, ISIS did appear out of nowhere three years ago, and that’s a major anomaly that can’t be explained in any way shape or form. In reality, ISIS was a US/British intelligence creation with the help of the Israeli Mossad—but mostly by merely giving existing western-backed rebels in Syria a name change.
Here are two short videos that confirm much of what I have been saying:
1) Former Marine officer Ken O’Keefe tells the audience in an interview for PressTV that “we are ISIS” meaning that the US government is behind it. It starts at about 5:20 and ends at 8:20. My only disagreement is his idea that the “big banks” and the military-industrial complex are behind this globalist conspiracy—a common error of those that think money is the motive for everything.
2) Irish investigative reporter Gearoid Colmain (based in Paris) sounds very much like he’s been reading my briefs. His declarations about how the Paris attacks were a government operation is spot on, and he has received a lot of play on the internet. However, keep in mind that he’s a self-admitted communist. Sometimes the left gets what Americans conservatives miss, but their solutions never favor liberty.
What you're about to read will probably shock you to your core. We're all familiar with genetically modified organisms in food, and we've even heard talks about genetically modified animals coming down the pipeline. But are you aware of the fact that the U.S. government is right now using your tax dollars to fund research into genetically modified humans?
A special investigative report by SkyWatchTV uncovers a heinous conspiracy by those entrusted with protecting our freedom and liberty to literally reengineer the human race using many of the same methods commonly used to reengineer food and plant life in the lab. And it's all happening under the radar with little to no fanfare in the mainstream media.
A short preview of this report on YouTube exposes what the show's hosts refer to as the coming "genetic Armageddon" – the complete undoing of creation as we know it for the purpose of enriching powerful and greedy corporations. And in the process, humanity will be reconstructed as well, presumably to be more compliant and less resistant to tyranny.
"I'm not sure that the world is ready to receive this," says investigative reporter Tom Horn. "We're talking about everything from the food that we eat, to animals, to ultimately humans – literally what we have been doing with genetically modified crops, what we have and are doing with transgenically made animals, we fully intend to do with the human race."
