3:53 PM - Days of Noah: What Churches Won't Tell You
10:08 AM - Visions of a False Jesus
At the bottom of the page of this story was a link titled "A False Rapture/Alien Invasion Is Coming, Read The Prophecies!" Out of curiosity I read it. It is one of the most bizarre attempts to explain away a pre-trib rapture I have ever seen, which is yet more evidence the pre-trib doctrine is true.
Very few Christians have any understanding just how sophisticated and convincing Satan can be in these last days of increasing deception. That's one of the reasons there must be a pre-trib rapture. Most of the true Church would be deceived by the events coming once the tribulation starts.

9:30 AM - Dinosaur Soft Tissue Discovered In China
A fossil bed in China that is being called "Jurassic Park" has yielded perhaps the greatest dinosaur soft tissue discovery of all time. According to media reports, "nearly-complete skeletons" have been discovered that even include skin and feathers. But of course if these dinosaurs are really "160 million years old", that should be absolutely impossible. Needless to say, this shocking discovery is once again going to have paleontologists scrambling to find a way to prop up the popular myths that they have been promoting. What they have been telling us simply does not fit the facts. The truth is that this latest find is even more evidence that dinosaurs are far, far younger than we have traditionally been taught.

9:23 AM - Self Defense Becoming a Crime Worse Than Murder
This story is unbelievable. A woman who, acting in self-defense, shot a warning shot in the vicinity of her husband, was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2012. She is in the process of appealing however, on the grounds that the judge inexplicably made her bare the burden of proof. What’s worse, the prosecution now wants to give her 60 years in prison because her husband had two of his children with him at the time of the warning shot.
7:33 PM - The Greatness of God
The Hubble Space Telescope website estimates there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe. A recent German super-computer simulation estimates that the number may be as high as 500 billion! Each galaxy would contain about 100 million stars. So the number of stars are essentially beyond human comprehension.

Malcolm Muggeridge, 1903-1990, English journalist, author, and media personality
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This quote is worth a thousand portraits of present day America. The illuminati have been very successful in their government indoctrination camps called public schools, colleges, and universities. We even pay them for our own brainwashing.
Lawyers are said to practice law and doctors are said to practice medicine. But did you know one of the definitions of practice, rarely used, is "to conspire" and "scheme." And indeed that is primarily the basis of current law and medicine.

10:01 AM - Will Jesus Find Faith When He Comes?
6:56 PM - The NWO Blueprint for America and the World
The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. ... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?
You know the Party slogan: 'Freedom is Slavery.' Has it ever occurred to you that it is reversible? Slavery is freedom. ... The second thing for you to realize is that power is power over human beings. Over the body but, above all, over the mind. ... How does one man assert his power over another, Winston? Winston thought. By making him suffer, he said.
Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? ... A world of fear and treachery is torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress towards more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy, everything.
Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. ... There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. ... If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face -- for ever. The espionage, the betrayals, the arrests, the tortures, the executions, the disappearances will never cease. It will be a world of terror as much as a world of triumph. ... That is the world that we are preparing, Winston.
3:37 PM - Living Among the Wolves
By Ronald Graham
Throughout the Bible we read of shepherds and sheep. Both the Old and New Testaments tell of the Lord being the shepherd who watches over His sheep, and the sheep are those who trust Him and follow Him. A shepherd protects his sheep, provides food and water for them, and searches for them if they became lost. The sheep are precious to the shepherd and they trust him. As Christians, we know that our Lord Jesus is our Good Shepherd and we are His sheep. "I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine." John 10:14. I don't know about you but that verse gives me comfort. He is our shepherd and we shall not want for anything. Yes, we are in His protection, but there are wolves all around us waiting to harm us if we stray. Strange as it may seem, our Shepherd sends us out among the wolves. "Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves." Luke 10:3. Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem and said these words to His disciples. He sent them out before Him to the cities He would pass through on His way to Jerusalem. They were to tell people that Jesus was coming. Today, we are His disciples and He sends us among the wolves to give that same message. Jesus is coming and the lost wolves of this world need to hear that truth.
Who are the wolves? They are Satan's followers... all unbelievers. Does that sound harsh? Does it sound as if I believe that non-Christians are on a wide path that leads to destruction? I do. You must understand what Jesus Himself tells us about unbelievers. Jesus said, "He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad." Matthew 12:30. Who is against Jesus? Satan. So if you're not with Jesus then you're with Satan. That is bad company to be in. These wolves are everywhere. They are in our schools where the Bible is not welcome. They are news reporters who slant opinions to serve Satan and have us accept ungodly lifestyles. They are preachers who preach politically correct sermons in order to not offend the wolves in the pews but they don't feed the sheep. The wolves are everywhere.

protect me from the violent,

9:22 AM - Increasing Deception in Alternative Media
Government controlled mass media is expected to be deceiving but as the government infiltrates alternative media more the level of deception is only going to get worse, and the unbridled acceptance of just about everything as conspiracy, without real evidence, by the liberty movement is probably going to be it's downfall. The recent "fake snow" stories are a perfect example of the incredible lunacy that it out there. Conspiracies are very real but people will believe just about anything.

GOVERNMENT SHILLS TROLLING THE INTERNET
(excerpts from large article)
Not only has the government been spying on every word sent around the internet, they have also been hiring people to ply the various internet forums to disrupt discussions and create strife. In the process they take names and report back to government who are the leaders and who are the followers, especially those viewed as the most critical of government. Zerohedge.com addressed the topic this week, relative to the latest Snowden revelations that confirm all this:
I’ve also pointed out that the outlandish and impossible government purchase orders of billions of rounds ammunition are probably put out there to provide a racy topic for internet chat—so they can build their list of people who get upset about it. I’m not saying they aren’t planning for martial law someday, nor that they are not arming to the teeth—they are. It’s just that these and similar perennial stories such as hundreds of thousands of Chinese troops in the country are inflammatory and bogus—meant to trap people into spreading wild rumors. There are enough true facts to worry about in the conspiracies around us without buying into what bogus insiders are telling well-meaning hosts of internet websites.
After seeing this pattern of creating straw man conspiracies over the years, I’m convinced that these kinds of bizarre scenarios [Twin Towers brought down by exotic energy directed weapons and Boston Marathon Bombing plus Sandy Hook totally fake with no deaths] are concocted by agent provocateurs and planted on the internet (usually on YouTube) to discredit conspiracy theorists. They all carefully evade any evidence that contradicts what they are saying. Sadly, many well meaning people start believing in these extreme claims and then it starts to have a cult following and a great deal of hate and discontent has been sown in the conspiracy field because of these claims. In the following story you’ll see just how volatile the issue has become as sites that are possible shills for government, but which claim to cater to conspiracy theorists, do a lot of strange and unexplainable censoring of people’s posts.

(Blogger note - Dave Hodges of CommonSenseShow also carefully monitors and censors comments of critical thinkers as I personally found out. As owner that is his right but those in alternative media do not always have a search for and dissemination of documented truth as their priority.)
9:18 AM - Charismatics Unite With One World Harlot Church
All of the elements were there. There was the contemporary worship music. There was the charismatic focus on feeling and experience. There was the "unity in diversity." There was the rejection of biblical separatism and the labeling of it as "diabolical." And there was Rome, showing the most humble, innocent, spiritually-passionate, and harmless of her many faces.

3:03 PM - Another Warning Against “Son of God” Movie
On February 28th, 20th Century Fox will release the movie Son of God in theaters. The movie is produced by husband/wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (Downey plays Mary in the film). While the movie is about the life of Jesus, and if the movie trailer is any indication, it will be a very moving and emotional account, Lighthouse Trails wishes to issue a word of caution and warning to those who will be going to see it. Between Roma Downey's affinity toward New Ageism and the highly ecumenical (evangelical, emerging, contemplative, Catholic, Mormon, etc) group of endorsers and advisers, there may be subtle messages in the movie that are contrary to the Word of God and its portrayal of Jesus Christ and truth. Thus, we encourage those who will be seeing the movie to watch it through the eyes of discernment and the filter of God's Word.
9:32 PM - Precious Lord Take My Hand
Precious Lord, take my hand,
Lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
Through the storm, through the night,
Lead me on to the light:
Take my hand, precious Lord,
Lead me home.
When my way grows drear,
Precious Lord, linger near,
When my life is almost gone,
Hear my cry, hear my call,
Hold my hand lest I fall:
When the darkness appears
And the night draws near,
And the day is past and gone,
At the river I stand,
Guide my feet, hold my hand:
6:13 PM - The Truth About Ukraine

UKRAINE’S PHONY COUP—SHADES OF SOVIET PAST
The sudden collapse of the pro-Russian Ukrainian government this week is a too-good-to-be-true win for the protesters. No one in either the mainstream or alternative media is questioning the glaring contradictions about what happened during the supposed “coup” this past weekend. Who gave the orders for all of the riot police to melt away and leave their posts? The almost totally disarmed opposition easily took control of the city and just walked up to the presidential villa. Who gave the orders to the pro-Russian Party of Regions, who wielded the majority in parliament, to suddenly switch their votes to join their political enemies in unanimously ousting President Yanukovych (who, knowing what was coming, had already left)? It certainly wasn’t the opposition. This all smacks of the same staged “collapse of communism” that supposedly toppled multiple soviet-controlled governments that still had fully functioning police, army and security forces.
Today, ousted PM Yanukovych gave a press conference in Russia claiming he left only because his life was threatened and that he was being shot at in his car all along his exit route as he left the country. Sorry, but that doesn’t wash. There aren’t but a handful of old hunting rifles in all of the opposition, so it’s hardly believable they could set up a running ambush on his escape that no one knew about. And, if his claims are real why doesn’t he tell us who was threatened his life?
He can’t because this coup was all fake. I’ve seen this done before. As I watched the phony collapse of Communism in 1989 I was shocked then too as the Western media blindly reported the superficial story and refused to point out or even question any of the numerous too-good-to-be-true happenings.
