"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

Montana Town Occupied By Private Paramilitary Security Force


By: A.M. Kisly

Yesterday’s news report brings today's urgent plea!

We write extensively about the days we live in, the current state of our world and the times which the Bible declares to be the time of the end.

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” Romans 13:11

We will get into this portion of scripture in a bit, but first I’d like to bring you the news report that prompted this article.

I have been researching several reports of a new kind of military force that is taking over the responsibilities of our police departments. Since 9/11, we have all heard of the “Patriot Act” and all the new power that our government has to “protect” us from terrorists in our country. While at the time it “seemed” like a good thing, I am becoming increasingly uncomfortable with it as the days go on.

I have read several articles on military preparedness for possible martial law, by law enforcement, military force and homeland security. Why? I cannot even imagine. The government has used the possible threat of a “pandemic” as grounds for this plan, and there have been drills all over the country in preparation for this. Will it happen? I can’t answer that, but while researching these claims made by citizens living in Arkansas, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, New York, Ohio, Texas, Michigan, California, and so on, it seems not only possible but a likelihood. The following report is one that really takes the cake.

I heard this news report on a local radio station here in New York and later found the news clip on Youtube posted yesterday. Description as follows:


On Tuesday, September 29, 2009 A private security force whose biggest role is helping the U.S. government to combat terrorism is now patrolling the streets of a town in Montana, acting as law enforcement but accountable to nobody and operating completely outside the limitations of the U.S. constitution in a chilling throwback to the brown shirts of Nazi Germany.

Watch News Report: Montana Town Occupied By Private Paramilitary Security Force

The American Police Force organization is a paramilitary unit that provides surveillance, investigative, and military services across the world, according to its website, which shows men dressed in military fatigues carrying machine guns.

As part of our mission, APF plays a critical role in helping the U.S. government meet vital homeland security and national defense needs. Within the last 5 years the United States has been far and away our #1 client. Technologies, programs, and services performed by APF have played a very important role in U.S. military and civilian efforts to protect our homeland and combat terrorism, the website states.

APF were originally contracted to provide security at a previously empty jail in Hardin, a small town in Montana, but are now patrolling the streets driving SUVs with Police Department printed on them despite the fact that Hardin doesn’t have a police department. American Police Force has no jurisdiction in the area because it is a private organization, not a police force.

According to Two Rivers Authority officials, having the private security force patrol the streets was not part of the contract. I have no idea. I really don’t because that’s not been a part of any of the discussions we’ve had with any of them, Two Rivers authority Al Peterson told KULR 8 News.

The American Police Force is a shady outfit shrouded in suspicion. According to an Associated Press report, questions over the legitimacy of the organization abound.

Government contract databases show no record of the company. Security industry representatives and federal officials said they had never heard of it. On its Web site, the company lists as its headquarters a building in Washington near the White House that holds virtual offices. A spokeswoman for the building said American Police Force never completed its application to use the address, reports AP.


[Note: This is more than a strange militant group, it’s darn right scary, and what’s up with the Russian Coat of Arms symbol they are using to represent themselves?]

American Police Force


Furthermore, APF was tasked with filling the empty Hardin jail with inmates, without any clear indication of where those prisoners would come from.

(Upon looking into this, it seems that there are reports that Montana may take terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay.)

It’s unclear where the company will get the inmates for the jail. Montana says its not sending inmates to the jail, and neither are federal officials in the state, according to the report.

Maybe the inmates will be the local population of Hardin if American Police Force is allowed to continue to pose as a law enforcement outfit in the town, which is exactly what they intend to do for at least another month.

Having a private security force whose stated mission is to help the U.S. government combat terrorism patrol the streets of small towns in America without even having the authority to do so from local authorities is obviously a frightening pretext and harks back to the private paramilitary forces that helped Adolf Hitler rise to power in Nazi Germany.

Many fear that if martial law is declared in response to a flu pandemic or other emergency, private security forces such as APF will be used by the government to oppress citizens by operating outside of the law.

This is completely unconstitutional and a flagrant threat to the liberty and security of the population of Hardin. The County Sheriff is effectively breaking the law if he doesn’t immediately kick APF out of the area and end the occupation of the town by a private paramilitary army.



Interesting news in light of the times we are finding ourselves living in. While strange developments are happening around us, our country is in a rapid free-fall to socialism and some would argue communism. Most are struggling through economic hardships. We are facing the constant threats of a pandemic. Then there is the government who continues to seek after control of everything. While our country is in upheaval, our President makes a special trip to Copenhagen, Denmark in order to make yet another sales pitch, only this time it’s in order to host the Olympics in his old stomping ground, Chicago. Doesn’t he have better things to do with his time, our time? [Just a thought: Did you notice that everything tends to center around good ole’ Chicago? What is up with that? Most of the news reports on the goings on in Chicago have to do with corruption.]

All of this is too much for the human heart and mind. The temptation for us is to tune out. Many choose to entertain themselves with whatever means available to numb the mind and forget their troubles. Have you ever heard the old saying, just go to sleep, things will look brighter in the morning?

What danger lies in wait for those who choose to escape from reality with false hopes and mindless activities?

There is a portion of scripture that urges us, or impels us with great force into motion and with great haste to awake out of sleep, to redeem the time, to be wise, to be filled with the Spirit of God, to know His word, and to worship the Lord.

In the book of Ephesians from chapter 5 and verses 14 – 19,

“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”

“Awake thou that sleepest.” It means to arouse ourselves from a state of slumber and false security. In sleep we are, though living, insensible to any danger that may be near; we are unconscious of what may be going on around us; we are forgetful of our real character and condition.

For the sinner, it is as if his faculties, or his ability to act, were locked in a deep slumber. He doesn’t hear when God calls; he has no sense of danger; he is insensible and forgetful of his / her true character and condition.

In the book of Romans from chapter 13 and verse 11 we read, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”

Here the scripture uses the term “high time” which means “the hour” in the Greek. It is indeed the very hour to awake out of sleep because the days are evil. This scripture here seems even more urgent in its plea.

We know that the days are evil. As Christians, we are to “redeem” the time. Take stock of our spiritual lives and examine our hearts under the scrutiny of scripture. It is time to place our complete trust in our heavenly Father.

Many in this world are asleep and cannot awaken by themselves. It is absolutely the work of God to awaken a sinner, and we are the very instruments he uses. While the sinner is asleep and slumbering on the verge of ruin, the flames of wrath are kindling around him threatening to consume him if he does not awake.

Where are the watchmen?

Our lives are a living testimony of the salvation of God. Once we walked in darkness and sin; now we walk in the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. Certainly, we do not take for granted our salvation, nor are we so ungrateful that we care nothing for those who are lost. Knowing our duty and walking in a way that brings the light of truth, Jesus the Light of the world, is a witness and a testimony of all we do.

Jesus is coming soon and we shall see Him face to face. It seems then that it behooves us to rouse, to walk in a way that is worthy, to do those things, and those things alone that bear the light of truth in this dark and present danger and to stand courageously in the ARMOUR OF LIGHT to bring hope to the hopeless sinner.

The hope of our salvation is the Lord Jesus Christ, it is “high time” to wake up and to be a beacon of light to this dark world.

The Simple and Serious Gospel of Salvation – Phase II The SANCTIER is the SAINT’s FIRE: Part Three


~~ By James Fire

What does it mean for a Christian to be sanctified? It’s a person who is not only born again, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, but whose mind is willingly submitted to the Mind of Christ, and to such an extent, that such a Christian resembles less and less the person they used to be, and takes on more and more the nature of Jesus.
Put very simply its one who is like Jesus, in a holy nature of love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness.
This is a life long process, and none of us will be complete in being transformed totally in Christ; that blessed event will transpire when we see Him face to Face (1 John 3:2), but its entirely possible to be Christ-like by renewing our minds by the power of the Holy Spirit.


We continue now in looking at the scriptures and examining the critically important issue of what the LORD requires of us as His following children: to be holy, even as He is holy.
Being “renewed in the spirit of your mind” is another idea that Paul develops in Romans ch. 12 and Philippians ch. 2.

Before we turn to those verses let me point out the architecture of our being as God created us. We saw the truth of this idea represented in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 above. God created us as triune beings, that comprises of three parts: body, soul and spirit. You can approximate the idea of our soul with mind, and the idea of spirit with heart (not the organ that pumps blood as that is part of our body, but rather that inner most spiritual core that represents the real us that will exist long after our bodies are dust).

When we are born again, God indwells us, as I’ve stated before; but where exactly within us does He dwell? He dwells within our inner most being, that is, our heart or spirit (see Eph. 3:17). It’s the blood of Jesus Christ that washes our sins away and grants us new, clean hearts whereas before, our old hearts were desperately (“incurably”) wicked (see Jeremiah 17:9). Once cleansed of sin, our hearts become a hospitable home for the Holy Spirit.

Yet God isn’t finished with us there! He intends to fill every part of our being, infusing us with His holiness, love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, etc (see Gal 5:22 and Eph 5:9): essentially, the very nature of Jesus. Yet we need our souls or minds to come under this sanctifying influence as well in order for the Holy Spirit to dwell comfortably and operate efficiently in our lives. Once this starts to happen, amazing things can occur which we will discuss at the end of this article.

This requires sanctification or a renewing of our minds as Paul states in Romans:

Rom 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


That transformation occurs as we surrender to the Holy Spirit, and allow Him to overcome our sinful nature that yet has dominion over our minds until we yield to the LORD. As we continuously (day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment) yield to God in these areas of our lives that we are tempted in, we become transformed as our minds are renewed. We begin to think like the LORD, we share in a ‘like-mindedness’ with Him (1Cor 2:16); His desires become our desires. The things that bring our LORD joy brings us joy; what breaks His heart breaks ours as well.

If you should stumble and fall into sin, don’t let this discourage you! Beloved of Jesus, you are supremely loved! And even when we fall into sin, we can confess our sin, and the LORD is faithful and just to cleanse us of all unrighteousness! See – 1 John 1:9.

I recall a time early on in my Christian walk when I was so very discouraged because I kept falling into the same sin, time and time again. Frustrated and despondent to the point of tears, I sat before the LORD and asked Him, “How many times am I going to fail You?”

His still, small, sweet voice answered me: “As many times as I am going to wash you clean by My blood, grant you strength to stand, and walk before Me in My love and grace.”

Philippians 2:5-8

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


As you may recall, I stated that salvation is a free gift, that we could do nothing to work for it or earn it, right? Now let’s read what Paul states a bit further along in this second chapter of Philippians - -

Philippians 2:12

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
What?? What is this that Paul is saying? “Work out your own salvation…”? This sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? Well, let me assure you, it’s not. What Paul is speaking of here is indeed that aspect of salvation that is sanctification (not justification which is granted freely and completely as the work of Christ alone in our lives). It’s in the process of sanctification that the LORD requires our cooperation; simply that when we are confronted with the temptation to sin, we step aside, and in prayer ask the LORD to do His work of sanctification in our minds that He seeks to renew and re-fashion in accord with His own mind. Note what Paul says after vs. 12 - -

Philippians 2:13
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

Do you see that? God works “in us” both a will to do, and the ability to do His good pleasure! It’s His work in us that brings this wonderful work of sanctification, and we simply work out, or allow to be made manifest that which God is working into our lives and minds! Awesome, isn’t it?

Philippians 3:9-10
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;


We who have been Christians for some time are aware of the fact and wonder why there seems to be so little power in the church today. There seems to be a stark contrast between the church in the book of Acts, and among Christians of only a century ago and even among Christians within the life time of Anne Kisly and myself, and the church as we see it today. Or even, by certain accounts, the power of God in foreign nations than we see here in the West.

The church seems to be more about seminars than spiritual power, conferences more than conforming to Christ, consensus with other religions rather than consecration to God, self-help programs rather than crucifying self to the cross of Christ; self-esteem rather than esteeming Christ Jesus our precious, wonderful LORD!

Why don’t we see more believers living in the power of God here today in America? Why statistically are Christians doing no better in their marriages and families, in businesses and other commitments than the world? In some cases to our shame, Christians come up short even in comparison with the world!
I think that this, at least in part, is why so many of our young people are leaving the church and migrating to other fellowships that are at least different than the dry deadness they see in their own churches. The problem is that these different fellowships teach an Emergent world view that is unbiblical, so their latter situation is worse then the former. But both are bad!
Yet would they even feel a need to leave if THEY FOUND THE KIND OF SPIRITUAL REALITY THAT WE ALL NEED?

I believe that God greatly desires, even yearns to manifest His power in the lives of believers but we quench Him by not yielding ourselves to Him in obedience to His Holy Word. We indulge in sinful practices and live unrepentant lives. We are not crucifying our flesh with its unlawful affections and lusts . . .

Gal 5:24-25
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.



When we learn to die to self, allowing our pride, anger, jealousy, hatred, coveting, lusts, etc to simply die and nail these things by faith to the cross of Christ, we enter into “the fellowship of His sufferings” and its not until we acknowledge our sin ‘dead and buried’ that we can then experience the power of His resurrection!

Until then, the Holy Spirit can’t function through all the garbage of unholy clutter that clogs our minds and interferes with what He would want done in this world through the lives of us His children.

Our prayer lives suffer, our witness to the world suffers; we lack the joy and peace that is ours by our spiritual birthright. Reading the Word becomes a chore instead of a delight (I confess that I have been there with all this and it’s no good, and it grieves our tender-hearted LORD literally to tears).

Be assured that Satan, our great enemy does NOT want any believers to receive and understand this message that has long been recorded in scripture, but is hardly taught in today’s pulpits! If you are reading this, it’s not by mistake! I believe the LORD has you here for a reason.

As we begin to put these spiritual truths back into our lives, and make them a daily practice, I believe our lives individually, as well as our churches will experience a radical transformation, and God can once again begin using us as potently as He has long desired to! The world out there is hurting and walking wounded. They are seeking answers in Emergent churches, adhering to politically and ecumenically correct dictates and dogmas. They don’t even believe there is an absolute Truth to believe in! They are rushing headlong down the ruinous river leading to hell. They need answers, but they won’t receive them from a powerless, lifeless church!!

What they need is a church overflowing with the power of God, inundated with the unction of the Holy Spirit. Saint, the LORD desires that our love for Him should be fiery hot, and in order to burn brightly and cleanly for Jesus Christ, “the Sanctifier needs to be the Saint’s Fire!

REMEDIAL COURSE On CONSPIRACIES 101 Part Four


We now continue in this examination of the coming one world order-

For this next part we shall conclude the analysis of the political sphere of global development, and then venture into the economic sphere, and examine how the world is even at present, unifying and blending their economies so that they are apparently inextricably linked together, just as scripture said it would be thousands of years ago.

Here is the final segment of quotes from the Goblins (globalists):

April, 1974 -- Former U. S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Trilateralist and CFR member Richard Gardner's article The Hard Road to World Order is published in the CFR's Foreign Affairs where he states that:

"the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down...but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."

Note here a tactic that has long been utilized in the world by the Power Elite: the proverbial frog in the gradually heated pot of water. The “piece by piece” method is of course subtle, and difficult to detect on an overt basis, as opposed to the more obvious “frontal assault”.

1975 -- In Congress, 32 Senators and 92 Representatives sign A Declaration of Interdependence, written by historian Henry Steele Commager. The Declaration states that:
"We must join with others to bring forth a new world order...Narrow notions of national sovereignty must not be permitted to curtail that obligation."

Congresswoman Marjorie Holt refuses to sign the Declaration saying:
"It calls for the surrender of our national sovereignty to international organizations. It declares that our economy should be regulated by international authorities. It proposes that we enter a 'new world order' that would redistribute the wealth created by the American people."

1975 -- Retired Navy Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy and former CFR member, writes in a critique that the goal of the CFR is the "submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all powerful one-world government..."

1975 -- Kissinger on the Couch is published. Authors Phyllis Schlafly and former CFR member Chester Ward state:

"Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided that the U.S. government should espouse a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of the CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy and to confound, discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition..."

1979 -- Barry Goldwater, retiring Republican Senator from Arizona, publishes his autobiography With No Apologies. He writes:

"In my view The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power -- political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical. All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more productive world community. What the Trilateralists truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved. They believe the abundant materialism they propose to create will overwhelm existing differences. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the future."

1987 -- The Secret Constitution and the Need for Constitutional Change is sponsored in part by the Rockefeller Foundation. Some thoughts of author Arthur S. Miller are:

"...a pervasive system of thought control exists in the United States...the citizenry is indoctrinated by employment of the mass media and the system of public education...people are told what to think about...the old order is crumbling...Nationalism should be seen as a dangerous social disease...A new vision is required to plan and manage the future, a global vision that will transcend national boundaries and eliminate the poison of nationalistic solutions...a new Constitution is necessary."

1988 -- Former Under-secretary of State and CFR member George Ball in a January 24 interview in the New York Times says:

"The Cold War should no longer be the kind of obsessive concern that it is. Neither side is going to attack the other deliberately...Sooner or later we are going to have to face restructuring our institutions so that they are not confined merely to the nation-states. Start first on a regional and ultimately you could move to a world basis."

This gives us an indication for the time table in “The Plan”. By necessity nations will need to give up their sovereignty and conglomerate into ‘regional districts’ such as the European Union. There is proposed behind closed doors, and actions have already begun in forming a North American Union. As well as these, a South American Union, an African Union, an Asian Union . . . even a Middle East Union if you can even conceive of that are all on the drawing board! Once these Unions are established, and functioning, all that remains is to link these together, and a one world government is in place and incumbent.

December 7, 1988 -- In an address to the U.N., Mikhail Gorbachev calls for mutual consensus:
"World progress is only possible through a search for universal human consensus as we move forward to a new world order."

1989 -- Carl Bernstein's (Woodward and Bernstein of Watergate fame) book Loyalties: A Son's Memoir is published. His father and mother had been members of the Communist party. Bernstein's father tells his son about the book:

"You're going to prove [Sen. Joseph] McCarthy was right, because all he was saying is that the system was loaded with Communists. And he was right . . . I'm worried about the kind of book you're going to write and about cleaning up McCarthy. The problem is that everybody said he was a liar . . . I agree that the Party was a force in the country."

Note the date here:
September 11, 1990 -- President Bush calls the Gulf War an opportunity for the New World Order. In an address to Congress entitled Toward a New World Order, Mr. Bush says:
"The crisis in the Persian Gulf offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times...a new world order can emerge in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony....Today the new world is struggling to be born."

1991 -- President Bush praises the New World Order in a State of Union Message:
"What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea -- a new world order...to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind...based on shared principles and the rule of law....The illumination of a thousand points of light....The winds of change are with us now."

June, 1991 -- The Council on Foreign Relations co-sponsors an assembly Rethinking America's Security: Beyond Cold War to New World Order which is attended by 65 prestigious members of government, labor, academia, the media, military, and the professions from nine countries. Later, several of the conference participants joined some 100 other world leaders for another closed door meeting of the Bilderberg Society in Baden, Germany. The Bilderbergers also exert considerable clout in determining the foreign policies of their respective governments.

July 18, 1993 -- CFR member and Trilateralist Henry Kissinger writes in the Los Angeles Times concerning NAFTA:

"What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system...a first step toward a new world order."

Remember that before the E.U. there was the E.C. or European Community, and before that there was E.F.T.A. or European Free Trade Association. E.F.T.A. was for all practical purposes a blue print for our current N.A.F.T.A. and here Henry Kissinger states that this is more about a first step toward a new world order.

If we follow the same pattern as Europe, what will the next step be here in America? A North American Community, followed by a North American Union, a socialist body comparable to the E.U. So, when do we the people get to VOTE on whether or not we want this??

1995 -- The State of the World Forum took place in the fall of this year, sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation located at the Presidio in San Francisco. . . the meeting of who's-who from around the world including Margaret Thatcher, Maurice Strong, George Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev and others. However, the term "global governance" is now used in place of "new world order" since the latter has become a political liability, being a lightning rod for opponents of global government.

Here is a link that exemplifies the transition from one term to the other:
Global Governance term

And the trail of the Goblins continues into the 21st century as well: Here is a web link to an intermediate course in Political Science currently being taught and deals with Global Government from a scholastic point of view; interesting to see how students will become familiar and adept with this issue as a functioning dynamic that will be implemented practically in the future.
In summation for this section of a New World Political Order, it’s abundantly obvious that the world leaders in government and business industries, educators, media moguls, and others hold favorably to the idea of global government that will be socialist in nature. You might ask, what’s so wrong about socialism? I would refer you back to the article by A. Kisly (The GRAVE CONDITION of AMERICA’S WORLDVIEW) and review the concepts as laid down by Karl Marx; you would do well to read Mr. Epperson’s book The Unseen Hand, that deals with this issue from the start in chapter One.

The following section will deal with the third primary sphere of global development, the new world economic order.

ONE ECONOMY –

ONE DOLLAR

In the unlikely event that there are some who are not yet aware of the strange symbolisms on the back of the one dollar bill, I’d like to go into it briefly; for the rest of you who are already familiar with all of this, I beg your patient indulgence.

Look at a one dollar bill, reverse it to the side that has the green ink, and a “ONE” prominently in the middle. Look to the left of the “ONE” and you see a pyramid without a cap stone (its just flat across the top) with an eye at its zenith. Around this “Great Seal” are some Latin words which are as follows: “Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum” which translated states: “Announcing the birth of the New World Order”. That eye at the top of the pyramid is actually the Eye of Horus, the Egyptian god of light, reason and knowledge. In any event, it’s not a Christian symbol and certainly if it were, it wouldn’t be placed over a pyramid.

Any who would like to investigate this further can go to this web site:
Horus Comes To America

This is an ancient symbol that was used by Adam Weishapt in his (Bavarian) Illuminati, but didn’t originate with him; its actual origins is unknown, but some believe that it came from secret orders in Egypt or even Babylon.

This seal was placed on the one dollar bill in 1935, see the info on the link below:
Is Our Fate Sealed

Most Masonic members recognize that the “Eye of Horus” is really the Eye of the ‘Great Architect of the Universe’, a euphemism for Lucifer.

So what is it doing on an American dollar bill, in a nation founded on Christian ideals and principles? Many ascribe the founding fathers as being Masons, and not at all as Christian men. The theories and allegations will rage on, no doubt. However, for purposes here, I don’t have to go that far back to show that the men who promoted this ‘Great Seal’ as something that belongs on the dollar bill for being the nefarious, un-Christian and certainly Masonic in principles and ideals, mystically minded men that they were.

Even if outlines a triangle over that pyramid, and then invert it over the letters (forming a 6 pointed star), five of those six points point to the letters A-N-S-O-M. which in different order spells out “MASON”. Coincidence? Hardly!

So what does all of this have to do with a one world economic order? Such forces in the Masonic Society, and the unseen Illuminati agents that hide amidst other like secret societies, governments, and powerful global organizations are intent on forming a one world system that will one day fall in submission to Lucifer as their rightful god who will rule this world overtly, demanding and receiving worship from all.

Precisely as the Bible laid out thousands of years ago.

But, you may ask, what are the more pragmatic aspects of all of this? If this truly was the intent of these people to bring about a one world order, and a global economy, there should be footprints that could lead us along the paths they took to achieve this great work. Indeed, there are! And we will get into that in the next segment (part Five) of this article

The Simple and Serious Gospel of Salvation – Phase II The SANCTIER is the SAINT’s FIRE: Part Two


~~By James Fire

If you're a new believer and feel a certain lack of direction spiritually, or even if you've been a Christian for some time, but feel as though you're either missing something in your walk with the LORD or that you've been missing out on something vital, then this may indeed be what you're looking for.

For myself, I know after I read material on this subject, I discovered that while I had 'bits and pieces' of these truths, I hadn't gotten 'the big picture' as I have now, thanks be to God!

So we continue with this article, and if you haven't read part One yet, please do so. Otherwise, read on, and I pray that the LORD blesses you in what you see here!

Gal 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Paul was never actually physically crucified; he died by beheading. He refers here to the spiritual reality of identifying with the death of Jesus on the cross, and by this means, dying to his own self will and sin.

This is how the process of sanctification is accomplished, and the way of a disciple of Jesus Christ. You can’t be a disciple and ignore the necessity of the cross and of sanctification, and any that endeavor sanctification is by definition a disciple.

You may be thinking by now: “Wow, this discipleship sounds extremely difficult! I don’t know if I can do this!” You’re quite correct; if you try to do this, it is extremely difficult. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that you not try in your own strength to do this, but rely upon God and His empowering grace to do this work.

Remember, sanctification requires your yielding and obedience, not your self effort. You simply acknowledge your need of sanctification, your need to become a person of holiness, and release yourself into God’s hands, surrendering your will and allow Him to do this work in you!

Think of it in these terms: if you were in a car accident, and immobilized in your wrecked car, and dialed 9-1-1 on your cell phone, calling for help, the police and an ambulance would arrive, and you would yield to them, receiving their help. Effort on your part would be unnecessary, just your cooperation. They would do all the work. It’s the same idea here.

Or putting it another way: suppose you had an empty glass before you, and you wanted to get all the air out of it. You think about it, and decide to get an air pump. You place the hose into the glass and then begin pumping, hoping to rid the glass of all its air. Obviously, there is still air in the glass, so you start pumping faster, but it still isn't working. So you begin pumping harder and faster, and in a while you’re exhausted, and have accomplished nothing!

Then you get another idea. You run off, and come back in a few minutes with a pitcher of water, and with no effort of your own, you simply pour that water into the glass, and in no time, all the air is out of the glass!

Christians (myself included!) are often guilty of trying to get rid of the sin in our lives by our own self effort. Here’s the problem: all of our resources… our will power, our mind, our volition, our intelligence, our sense of discipline are all tainted by our sin nature! We can’t purge out our sin with any powers which are themselves tainted with sin: its like trying to use air to pump out air: no matter how hard you try, you can’t succeed!

However, as with our illustration, if we simply pour water into that pitcher, problem solved! Just so, we are to pour the water of the Word into our lives (Ephesians 5:25-27), and yield to the sweet influences of the Holy Spirit, and be filled with the Spirit of God (Ephesians 5:18), deny the flesh and all its sinful tendencies by nailing it to the cross of Christ and accounting it to be dead with Christ (Romans 6:11).

Remember something that the LORD showed me once some years ago:

Victory in life is not obtained in a Vacuum (by our effort emptying ourselves of sin) but in the Vitality (the Life) of Jesus Christ!

An acronym that I’m very fond of, and use quite often when I sign off of emails and posts in my blogs or here on TTUF is: A.V.R.A.S. which stands for:

A.bsolute V.ictory (in life) R.equires A.bsolute S.urrender (to Christ).

This came to me shortly after reading Andrew Murray’s small, but powerful book
ABSOLUTE SURRENDER

The process is not all that different than your salvation experience: you recognized your need for justification, acknowledged the truth, acknowledged your helplessness to do this for yourself, expressed faith in God that He can accomplish this work of justification in you, and surrendered yourself to His will, and received Christ Jesus into your heart and life.

When you are confronted with any particular temptation, and the old appetites for sin rise up in you such as alcohol, drugs, sexual lusts, bitterness, hatred, what have you; you resist that temptation by addressing the LORD Jesus who knows all things from His throne in heaven and confess to Him your struggle in this temptation.

Remember temptation isn’t sin in itself; our LORD who is our holy high priest was tempted in every way (so He knows what you’re going through), but He never committed a sin; see – Hebrews 4:15. It’s only when we give in to temptation that we commit sin.

Acknowledge that it would be a sin to give into that temptation. Acknowledge to Him that you’re dead to sin 1, that you’re not your own any longer, that you belong to Him 2 and that as a disciple you desire to honor and please Him by obedience. Surrender yourself into His hands and ask Him to fill you with the power of His Holy Spirit who alone can enable us to conquer sin in our lives!

Rom 6:6-7, 11
1 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Prayerfully read the entire 6th chapter of Romans)

1 Cor 6:19-20
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Temptation can, like a storm, stir slowly in us, then rise to a fever pitch and rages, but if you stand fast, eventually that storm will pass. It can also strike suddenly like a bolt of lightening. We must always be alert, and guard our hearts (1 Peter 5:8). You can live the life of an over comer, but not by any self effort, but by yielding to the LORD as described above.

Alright, now let’s look at some scriptures that talk about sanctification:

1 Thess. 4:3-4
For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel (the mind and thus physical appetites) in sanctification and honor;

2 Thess. 2:13
But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

1Peter 1:2
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

The LORD Jesus specifically stated the means by which we would be sanctified when He prayed to the Father:

John 17:17
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

It’s the Word of God, the Truth, that we find the guidance, and direction for this process. We learn what pleases God, what doesn’t, how to overcome sin, and live a victorious, joyous life. It has its cleansing influences on us!

Paul the Apostle had much to say on this subject as well:

Eph 5:25-27
Hus.bands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

And also:

1Thess. 5:23-24
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. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

. . . and . . .

Hebrews 13:12
Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

The apostle Paul also spoke of yielding our members (our bodies) not to unrighteousness (sin) but to righteousness:

Romans 6:13, 19
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

Paul further develops this spiritual truth by speaking of the “old man” that is, humanity that is part of the fallen Adamic nature, prone to sin; and the “new man” that is, humanity that is part of the regenerated holy nature through Jesus Christ, prone to righteousness; also be aware that most often in the New Testament, especially in the Epistles, where “walk” is mentioned, it refers to one’s manner of life or “life style” as we would put it:

Eph 4:17-24, 27
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness (unrestrained wickedness), to work all uncleanness with greediness.
But ye have not so learned Christ;
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation (also means, “life style”) the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Neither give place to the devil.

Being “renewed in the spirit of your mind” is another idea that Paul develops in Romans ch. 12 and Philippians ch. 2.

And we will examine what being "renewed in the spirit of your mind" means, and what's required for this to happen in the life of the believer in the next, and last segment of this article.

May the LORD Jesus truly bless and edify you, WAY TOO MUCH!

News Development for H1N1: RFID Chips for Human Implant



By: A.M. Kisly

I heard an alarming news report on a radio program that I was listening to yesterday. I quickly launched to my computer and got on the internet in order to dispel the rumor, or prove the facts of the story. I found that what I heard was indeed true.

The following article will show what is on the horizon for all of us. It is important to know what is going on in order be able to make decisions for ourselves and our families. We must stand steadfast and unmovable in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, which is to rule over our every decision and our lives.


In the book of Revelation, God gives us a clear and detailed account of the horrors and desolation which will come upon our planet. This is the Great Tribulation that Jesus spoke of in Matthew chapter 24.

There are always those who will deny the validity of this by way of questioning why a loving God would allow such judgment to come. They don’t seem to understand that God is a Holy and Righteous Judge as well as a Loving Heavenly Father.

In Romans 3:23, the Bible states that, “All have sinned, and come short (inferior, to fall short, be deficient or come behind, destitute, lack, suffer need, want or be the worse) of the glory (dignity, glory (ious), honor, praise and worship) of God.”

Yes, God created man in his image, and from the beginning, man has chosen the way of wickedness and rebellion against his Creator.

BUT…God in his love, “For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 Here is God’s provision, to believe on the Son of God, Jesus Christ. This is the only way for man to be accepted and received by God.

The eternal future of man is determined by whether he will believe and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of his/her life, or not.

For those who reject Christ, it is horrible even to imagine the judgment that will befall them. The Bible speaks of the time of the end when judgment will come to the human race.

In the Great Tribulation, Satan will rise up and declare himself to be Christ. Here is the grand delusion of Lucifer. From the time he rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven and declared to be the enemy of God, Satan has been scheming and dreaming of a day where all of God’s creation will rise up and worship him.

The Bible clearly prophecies that when the Anti-Christ is revealed, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8

The scriptures go on to say that this beast will do great wonders; he will make fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men.

In Revelation 13: 14, “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."

In verse 15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

How will he know who will be a faithful and loyal worshiper of him? He will know by their receiving of a special mark, a mark in which the Bible declares is the name of the beast and the number of his name.

Those who refuse, will not be able to buy or sell, the freedom to work and provide for their families will be taken away. And when that doesn’t work, well, you will surely die.

Revelation 13:16-18, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”

During the Great Tribulation, ALL men will receive a mark in their right hands or their foreheads.

The technology is here and companies such as VeriChip is making great strides in the development of a chip to be implanted in human hosts.

I believe the trial period for such a thing will take place in the threat of the so-called “Pandemic” H1N1 or Swine Flu.

The WorldNet Daily put out a story that states:

“A Florida-based company that boasts selling the world's first and only federally approved radio microchip for implanting in humans is now turning its development branch toward "emergency preparedness," hoping to produce an implant that can automatically detect in its host's bloodstream the presence of swine flu or other viruses deemed a "bio-threat."”

It goes on to say, “But VeriChip has also turned its attention to other uses for the technology, including microchips that be used to tag and log human remains after a disaster and implants the company hopes will be able to warn if their host is infected with the H1N1 swine flu virus, the H5N1 bird flu virus or other pandemic agents deemed to be a "bio-threat."”

The ultimate goal for the companies involved is to develop an implant that can also diagnose which virus is infecting the host.

Is it true? You can visit the VeriChip website and read it for yourself:

VeriChip Corporation Granted Exclusive License to Patents Used in Virus Triage Detection System for H1N1 Virus


Also, the following pdf file is a paper which explains exactly what their intentions are:

An Integrated Sensor System for the Detection of BIO-Threats from Pandemics to Emerging Diseases to Bioterrorism


Amazing, isn’t it?

Time is short, and both you and I know many people who have not yet come to the saving knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Let us pray with all earnestness for their souls and witness to those whom God has brought into our lives of the faith and hope we have found through Jesus Christ.

It is the goodness of God that brings a man to repentance.

To the unbeliever, God loves you so much so that he gave His Son to take the responsibility and the guilt of your sin on the cross where He died, that He could wash you and cleanse you the guilt and shame of sin forever.

For those who think they will ride out the storm and wait until God’s judgments come upon earth, if you don’t repent of your sin now by hearing of the goodness of God, you surely won’t repent out of fear and judgment.

Now is the time of salvation. Don’t put off the hope and happiness of heaven. Come to the Lord Jesus Christ, he has a plan and a future awaiting you.

The Simple and Serious Gospel of Salvation – Phase II The Sanctifier is the Saint's Fire


~~ By James Fire

Previously in the article of “A Simple and Serious Gospel of Salvation” I had written:“I’ve been given this opportunity and privilege to share the Gospel in this article and I pray that the LORD is honored by it, and that all who read this are blessed, particularly those who do not yet know Jesus as their LORD and Savior.“. . . we shall examine the doctrine of salvation by biblical ‘exposition’ [and learn] . . . what the Gospel actually is . . . why salvation is necessary, as well as why Christ alone sacrificed on our behalf is sufficient as payment for the sins of the world.”

“Further, we shall delve even deeper into this study and examine the component ‘parts’ of salvation and see how they relate to the newly born and saved in Christ, and the maturing saint, as well as the saint who has passed from this life into the next.”

Those portions that are italicized and highlighted above are what this ‘Phase II” is going to focus on: now that a person is saved, what next? What is required as a newly born citizen of God’s Kingdom? How is such a one to grow properly and in a spiritually healthy manner?

It’s an unfortunate trend in today’s Christian society: once a person comes forward either at a crusade or a church, and the opportunity to receive salvation is presented, and they are indeed saved, the perception is they’ve crossed the finish line, that somehow they’ve achieved their purpose in life, and reached the climatic conclusion. Emphasis is placed on evangelism, rather than what’s called discipleship (more about this word later).

Yet the ushering in of a soul into the kingdom of God is hardly the climax, it’s only just the beginning!

Allow me to illustrate:

Suppose you and, let’s say your spouse, received as a free gift from your father: an all expense paid two week vacation to Hawaii! With great expectation and excitement, you pack your bags, load onto the plane, and take to flight over the Pacific, eagerly awaiting your destination. After a pleasant flight, you and your companion are all smiles as the plane comes over the luxurious tropical islands you can see from high above. Within minutes, the plane comes to land on the runway. You’ve now entered the exotic land of Hawaii.

Hurriedly you begin to gather your things from the overhead compartment, and check the pockets on the back of the seats in front of you to make sure you haven’t forgotten anything, when you notice your spouse is sitting passively in their seat, gazing dreamily out the window.

“Come on, honey, lets go!” you exclaim, and they say,
“Go? Go where?”
“We’re here! We’re in Hawaii, and we got lots to do and to see!”
“That’s right! We’ve seen the island from above, and we’ve entered it, now let’s enjoy it!” and they turn back to the window.
“You mean to tell me you’re content to spend your entire vacation here? On the plane?!”
They nod serenely and turn to gaze once more out the window.

Thinking that the Christian life is all about getting saved is no more accurate or inclusive than to think one’s vacation time is well spent, by sitting on the plane that brought you to your dream destination!

Nor is it suggested that the Christian life is a vacation or some luxurious, easy life free of stress, trials or hardships any more than the old Negro spiritual songs that spoke of crossing Jordan meant entering into heaven.

If crossing Jordan was entering heaven, then there are things about heaven I certainly don’t like! Over Jordan, in the land of Canaan, there were giants! And pagan armies! And all sorts of religious seductions! Trials, tribulations, hardships and what not met the children of Israel in Canaan, and yet for those who were faithful to the LORD, it was a blessed, growing experience.

Rather than a picture of heaven, the Canaan conquest, as well as being an historical documentation in the Old Testament, is also a ‘type’ (model) for us as Christians for the overcoming life of the believer. The account is an example for us, followers of Jesus Christ on how to conduct ourselves (and in some cases how not to) in this life (See Romans 15:4).

The Christian life is presented with challenges as potent as any that the children of Israel faced in days gone by; perhaps, given the days we live in, even greater challenges!

We believers who’ve been born again by the Holy Spirit of God have seen the kingdom of God in a very real spiritual sense, and we have also entered into it through the priceless blood shed by the Son of God, the LORD of glory, Jesus Christ.

Now that we are here, in a very real, spiritual presence in the kingdom of God, what’s next?

The word “salvation” occurs 164 times in 158 verses in the King James Bible; here are a couple of verses from the Psalms:

Psa 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Psa 27:1
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?


This very word “salvation” has a very rich, deep meaning.

Dr. Schofield explains (in a footnote of his study Bible, in Romans 1:16):

“The Hebrew and Greek words for “salvation” imply the ideas of deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, and soundness; “salvation” is the great inclusive word of the Gospel, gathering into itself all of the redemptive acts and processes as: justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification.

“Salvation is in three tenses:

1) The Christian has been saved from the guilt and penalty of sin (Luke 7:50; 1 Cor. 1:18; 2 Cor. 2:15; Eph. 2:5, 8; 2 Tim. 1:9) and is safe.

2) The Christian is being saved from the habit and dominion of sin (Rom. 6:14; 8:2; 2 Cor. 3:18; Gal. 2:19-20; Phil. 1:19; 2:12-13; 2 Thess. 2:13).

3) The Christian will be saved at the LORD’s return, from all the bodily infirmities that are the result of sin and God’s curse upon the sinful world (Rom. 8:18-23; 1 Cor. 15:42-44) and brought into entire conformity to Christ (Rom. 13:11; Heb. 10:36; 1 Pet. 1:5; 1 John 3:2).

“Salvation is by grace through faith, is a free gift and wholly without works (Rom. 3:27-28; 4:1-8; 6:23; Eph. 2:8). The divine order is: first salvation, then works (Eph. 2:9-10; Titus 3:5-8).”



Now I realize that if you’re a new believer, reading all of these theological terms and all these verses might feel a bit overwhelming; or even if you’ve been a believer for some years, but were never taught these things, it can be no less daunting. Yet, please be patient and we will walk through all of this very carefully, and by God’s grace He will enable me to reveal His Truth and grant you understanding.

I recently finished reading a book by Chuck and Nancy Missler entitled The Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.
They delve deeply into this subject and exposit such a wealth of material, that when I finished the book, I realized I was missing some crucial aspects in my life with the LORD. I would enthusiastically endorse this book, but there are some particulars that I do disagree with; if any believer who desires to live in victory, and to have confidence on the Day of Judgment (where we as believers won’t get judged for sin, but for performance, and as a result receive [or not] rewards based on our conduct), then a reading of this book for it's subject matter on sanctification will prove useful. But there are aspects of 'remedial training in heaven' for those who were not properly sanctified while here on this Earth as an "overcomer" that we do not agree with.

The book summarize the three primary elements of the Christian life as follows:

Salvation is a very broad term, and we must be focused on precisely what we mean by this word. There are three main components of our salvation, those being 1) justification, 2) sanctification and 3) glorification.

1) Its in justification that we are saved from the Penalty of sin: we have been saved from sin’s penalty.

2) Its in sanctification that we are saved from the Power of sin: we are being saved from sin’s power.

3) Its in glorification that we are saved from the Presence of sin: we will be saved from its presence.

When you received the gift of salvation, by believing in Jesus Christ and His finished work of salvation on the cross, you were spiritually regenerated. Up until that time, you were spiritually dead because of sin. Yet once you repented before God and salvation was received, you were born again and the very God of creation, in all three Persons of the Trinity indwelt you, and in your heart they remain both now and forever.

There is nothing you could have done to earn this salvation, so God granted it to you as a free gift! I believe there is nothing you can do to lose this salvation, or speaking more precisely, this justification. Because you have been justified by Christ Jesus and the atonement He wrought on the cross on your behalf, you can never be lost.

Justification is imparted freely to all who come to Jesus Christ, and there is no one who will be ‘more justified’ a million centuries from now in heaven, than they already were at the very moment they received their Savior! It’s an entirely completed work of God’s grace (unmerited favor), and it ensures a place in heaven for all who accept it.

Rom 5:18
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.


The offence of one was Adam, when he committed that act of sinful rebellion against God. The righteousness of one is Jesus Christ, the God-man who never sinned, but was pure from all sin in both act and nature, and was thus an appropriate substitute to die on our behalf, for our sins.

Realize that when the New Testament was originally written, it was copied in the Greek language (the Old Testament was written in Hebrew) and so in order to gain greater insight, it’s helpful to know what a particular word in the Bible was, in its original language (either Greek or Hebrew).


This is not to underestimate the Holy Spirit’s ability to supernaturally enlighten a believer as to the meaning of scripture; the Holy Spirit is absolutely indispensable in order for any one to understand the Bible, which itself was inspired by the Holy Spirit of God through the various writers of the Bible. He is capable of doing this without a person knowing Greek or Hebrew from pig Latin!

Being accustomed to the meaning of words in the original languages however is quite useful for the diligent student of the Bible and there are resources available for this purpose. A concordance is a reference work that catalogs all references to all scriptures found in the Bible, and you can locate any verse anywhere in the entire text in a matter of minutes by using such a work. Most of them include Hebrew and Greek lexicons that reveal the original meanings of words. Below is a link that shows you just such a concordance, one that I am fond of using myself:


Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, Updated Edition

The Greek word for “justification” according to Strong’s is “dikaiosis” and it means, “acquittal (for Christ’s sake)”. Dikaiosis denotes “the act of pronouncing righteous, justification, acquittal”; its precise meaning is determined by that of the verb dikaoo, “to justify”, signifying the establishment of a person as just by acquittal from guilt. In Romans 4:25 the phrase “for our justification” is literally “because of our justification” . . . all that was necessary on God’s part for our “justification” has been effected in the death of Christ. On this account he was raised from the dead. The ‘propitiation’ (that is, the only acceptable sacrifice) being perfect and complete, His resurrection was the confirmatory counterpart (thus proving His sacrifice was acceptable, as death could not restrain Him from rising). In Romans 5: 18 (quoted above) “justification in life” means “justification which results in life (vs. 21). That God justifies the believing sinner on the ground of Christ’s death, involves His free gift of life.”

Rom 3:24, 28
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Rom 5:1

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:


Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we may live for all eternity with Him, and our Father; we now must learn what it is to “die to ourselves” so that Jesus may live His life through us. This is the essence of sanctification: when the believer attains Christ-likeness in their personal life. In dying to self, and becoming more and more alive in Jesus, we can experience insurmountable joy and peace, entirely independent of our circumstances, even in the worst of trials.

This doesn’t mean that the Christian’s life is sinless either, for it’s been said: “Christians aren’t sinless, but they should sin less.” As we grow in our Christian life, there should be a gradual decreasing of sinful tendencies in our old way of life, and a gradual increasing of holy and righteous tendencies in our new way of life.

You may not realize it, but according to God’s Truth, once you become saved by Jesus Christ, you are classified as a saint! Read through the epistles of Paul the apostle; any time he addresses the members of any particular church, he refers to them all as saints.

So what exactly is a saint? The term ‘saint’, and ‘sanctify’ come from the same root word, and this root word means “to be set apart for God in special relationship and purpose”, and to be equally set apart from the world and all of its unholy influences.

This is a process that begins upon the moment of salvation, but it doesn’t happen over night, and it certainly can’t happen without the yielding and cooperation of the Christian in conjunction with God’s dealing with and in us. This is the essence of discipleship, and as you might have guessed, looking at that word, it involves discipline.

Justification, that initial part of the salvation process (a one time event) is absolutely free and accomplished by Christ Jesus alone. Sanctification however is something that requires a continual, moment by moment yielding and obedience on our part to God and His Holy Word.

Let’s look at some verses where our LORD Jesus addresses this subject of discipleship:

Luk 14:26
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.


Those are very strong words aren’t they? Some believe that they are unfair: how can God ask us to hate our parents? Or wife? Or children? Or even our own life? Especially when He also tells us to love our neighbors and even our enemies! (see- Matt 22:39, and Matt 5:44) What the LORD is saying is that if we would be His disciple, His follower, our love and devotion for Him should be so powerful and so all-consuming that our love for any one else would pale, even to the point of looking like hatred by comparison!

Why would He require this of us? Because of the fact that our LORD Jesus has loved us far more than any other ever has; with all of His heart, all of His soul, all of His body, and He proved it by dying on the cross for our sins! Thus His commandment to love Him supremely with all our hearts, souls, and strength is not at all unreasonable (Luke 10:27).

Luk 14:27
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.


We wear crosses today as jewelry made of gold or silver; we adorn the steeples of our churches with crosses. You will notice that none of them have dried blood encrusted on them. They used to; back in the days of the Roman Empire crosses were instruments of cruel torture and execution, used as a means of deterring rebellion against the Roman government.

What could Jesus have possibly meant when He spoke of His disciples bearing their own crosses in following Him? Was He referring to how many of them would eventually die on such crosses as He, and Peter the Apostle did? I’m sure He had that in mind, but there is an aspect that reaches much farther than merely a historical occurrence of the then near future.

Jesus Christ called all men to Him, not to live, but to die; that is, to die to themselves and become alive to God. Paul mentioned this in his epistle to the Galatians:

Gal 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.


Paul was never actually physically crucified; he died by beheading. He refers here to the spiritual reality of identifying with the death of Jesus on the cross, and by this means, dying to his own self will and sin.

This is how the process of sanctification is accomplished, and the way of a disciple of Jesus Christ. You can’t be a disciple and ignore the necessity of the cross and of sanctification, and any that endeavor sanctification is by definition a disciple.You may be thinking by now: “Wow, this discipleship sounds extremely difficult! I don’t know if I can do this!” You’re quite correct; if you try to do this, it is extremely difficult. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that you not try in your own strength to do this, but rely upon God and His empowering grace to do this work.

Remember, sanctification requires your yielding and obedience, not your self effort. You simply acknowledge your need of sanctification, your need to become a person of holiness, and release yourself into God’s hands, surrendering your will and allow Him to do this work in you!

Until then, may the LORD Jesus truly bless you as you seek Him in the Word and in prayer!

REMEDIAL COURSE on Conspiracies 101 - Part Three

~~By James Fire

As previously stated in parts one and two of this article, there are three spheres of global development in this new world order, a.k.a. 'global governance': religious, political and economic.

We just started with a list of quotes by members of the non-elected, non-representative leaders of free people everywhere; 'goblins' who are 'the power elite' that rule the world of commerce, business, banking, industry, the institutions of education, etc. and have every intention of installing an oligarchy to subjugate all free peoples of the world into a singular global reign of tyranny.

How can we possibly adhere to such ludicrous beliefs as these? Dr. Stan Monteith, founder of the ministry Radio Liberty (web link located later in article), and a "watchman on the wall" has been asked that question countless numbers of times by skeptics. His answer?

"I've read the writings of those who propose to do this very thing, and I believe them!"

We then continue in our analysis of the political sphere - - -


That there is such a thing as a cabal of power brokers who control government behind the scenes has been detailed several times in this century by credible sources. Professor Carroll Quigley was Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University. President Clinton has publicly paid homage to the influence Professor Quigley had on his life. In Quigley's magnum opus Tragedy and Hope (1966), he states:

"There does exist and has existed for a generation, an international...network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups and frequently does so.


"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies...but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."


TRACKING THE GOBLINS

Here is a brief history of twentieth century conspiratorial events –

1913 -- The Federal Reserve (neither federal nor a reserve) is created. It was planned at a secret meeting in 1910 on Jekyl Island, Georgia by a group of bankers and politicians, including Colonel E.M. House. This transferred the power to create money from the American government to a private group of bankers. It is probably the largest generator of debt in the world.
May 30, 1919 -- Prominent British and American personalities establish the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England and the Institute of International Affairs in the U.S. at a meeting arranged by Col. House attended by various Fabian socialists, including noted economist John Maynard Keynes. Two years later, Col. House reorganizes the Institute of International Affairs into the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

1928 -- The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution by H.G. Wells is published. A former Fabian Socialist, Wells writes:
"The political world . . . of the Open Conspiracy must weaken, efface, incorporate and supersede existing governments...The Open Conspiracy is the natural inheritor of socialist and communist enthusiasms; it may be in control of Moscow before it is in control of New York...The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly displayed...It will be a world religion."

Thus we see the connection between a one world religion, and a one world government. The former will be utilized in aiding the realization of the latter, and as we can see, the Emergent Church Movement is doing much to unify the world’s religions into a cohesive force by which world government will appear more tenable.

1932 -- New books are published urging World Order:
Toward Soviet America by William Z. Foster. Head of the Communist Party USA, Foster indicates that a National Department of Education would be one of the means used to develop a new socialist society in the U.S.


John Dewey has been featured in TTUF article: The GRAVE CONDITION of AMERICA'S WORLD VIEW Part 1 and also The GRAVE CONDITION of AMERICA'S WORLD VIEW Part 2 by A.M. Kisly, and has been incredibly influential as a founder of the modern American Public School system. Dr. Dewey was a humanist, atheist, socialist, and evolutionist – the question I have is, why was he here in America and not rather a more suitable place for one with his views, say Soviet Russia?

1933 -- The first Humanist Manifesto is published. Co-author John Dewey, the noted philosopher and educator, calls for a synthesizing of all religions and "a socialized and cooperative economic order."

Co-signer C.F. Potter said in 1930:
"Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour once a week, teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?

1934 -- The Externalization of the Hierarchy by Alice A. Bailey is published. Bailey is an occultist, whose works are channeled from a spirit guide, the Tibetan Master [demon spirit] Djwahl Kuhl. Bailey uses the phrase "points of light" in connection with a "New Group of World Servers" and claims that 1934 marks the beginning of "the organizing of the men and women . . . group work of a new order . . . [with] progress defined by service...the world of the Brotherhood...the Forces of Light . . .[and] out of the spoliation of all existing culture and civilization, the new world order must be built."

The book is published by the Lucis Trust, incorporated originally in New York as the Lucifer Publishing Company. Lucis Trust is a United Nations NGO and has been a major player at the recent U.N. summits. Later Assistant Secretary General of the U.N. Robert Mueller would credit the creation of his World Core Curriculum for education to the underlying teachings of Djwahl Kuhl via Alice Bailey's writings on the subject.

Essentially our modern day educational system’s philosophy here in America, brought to us by the U.N. Assistant Secretary General Robert Mueller, who borrowed these ideas from the underlying teachings given to Alice Bailey . . . by her spirit guide, a demonic spirit?!

1946 -- Alger Hiss is elected President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Hiss holds this office until 1949. Early in 1950, he is convicted of perjury and sentenced to prison after a sensational trial and Congressional hearing in which Whittaker Chambers, a former senior editor of Time magazine, testifies that Hiss was a member of his Communist Party cell.

Interesting! A former senior editor of TIME magazine was a Communist!

Recently I received an email from someone who was reading some articles off my blog The RED PILL Consortium, which he has forwarded to his brother. His brother replied that “Who are you going to believe about this issue? Some blog writer or Newsweek?”

I told him, “Don’t believe either source until you have done your own research and come to your own conclusions; as for myself, I wouldn’t trust a single word printed in that magazine. Its editors are probably in the C.F.R. and as members in good standing, are actively dispensing politically correct propaganda.” Before I actually sent that email however, I thought I’d better verify my facts, and sure enough . . . here’s a link:

CFR-infested NEWSWEEK magazine:

1948 -- Walden II by behavioral psychologist B.F. Skinner proposes "a perfect society or new and more perfect order" in which children are reared by the State, rather than by their parents and are trained from birth to demonstrate only desirable behavior and characteristics. Skinner's ideas would be widely implemented by educators in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s as Values Clarification and Outcome Based Education.
1948 -- UNESCO president and Fabian Socialist, Sir Julian Huxley, calls for a radical eugenic policy in UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy. He states:
"Thus, even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable."

1948 -- The preliminary draft of a World Constitution is published by U.S. educators advocating regional federation on the way toward world federation or government with England incorporated into a European federation.

The Constitution provides for a "World Council" along with a "Chamber of Guardians" to enforce world law. Also included is a "Preamble" calling upon nations to surrender their arms to the world government, and includes the right of this "Federal Republic of the World" to seize private property for federal use ('eminent domain' sound familiar to any one?).

I have in my possession copies of the WCPA (World Constitution and Parliament Association), a United Nations N.G.O. (non-governmental organization) and the planners are quite serious about the propositions contained therein. Its interesting that in this World Constitution, they plan on dividing the Earth up into twenty regions, and couple these regions together into ‘magna-regions’ thus the Earth will be divided up into TEN regions (Has any one read Daniel ch. 2 and 7 lately?)!

“WARS, LIKE BRIDGES, ARE DESIGNED” F.D.R., former President of the USA

Dr. Chuck Missler, prophecy expert and Bible teacher and John Loeffler, radio broadcaster that also hosts Missler’s radio program 66/40 have a presentation, a Round Table discussion with Dr. Stan Monteith and Dr. Dennis Cuddy.

Behold A Red Horse - Wars and Rumors of Wars – You’ll want to listen to parts 4 & 5 of these audio files to hear what these four discuss regarding war and their function as designed by the Power Elite.

Stan Monteith has a ministry called Radio Liberty and offers many excellent resources that are available to any who want to learn more about ‘The Plan’ as Alice Bailey was fond of calling it. His web site is below for your convenience:

CONTINUING THE PURSUIT OF GOBLINS

As stated previously, there are dozens of ‘goblins’ that have openly proclaimed their intentions towards a world government, and they think nothing of using nefarious methods in accomplishing this goal. We fast forward a bit into the 1960s and pick up with a quote from Nelson Rockefeller:

The Future of Federalism by author Nelson Rockefeller is published. The one-time Governor of New York, claims that current events compellingly demand a "new world order," as the old order is crumbling, and there is "a new and free order struggling to be born." Rockefeller says there is: "a fever of nationalism...[but] the nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks....These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order...[with] voluntary service...and our dedicated faith in the brotherhood of all mankind....Sooner perhaps than we may realize...there will evolve the bases for a federal structure of the free world."

Notice what Nelson said re: “the brotherhood of all mankind”. This may sound like a genuine sentiment of good will toward all men, but in all actuality, this is a proclamation of universalism, that is, nothing need change in the hearts of mankind in order for us to be received by Deity; we are all brothers, and children of God regardless of our station in life, religious persuasion, etc. This is in stark contrast to what the Bible tells us in John 1:12 and 3:3-5.

1964 -- Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, Handbook II is published. Author Benjamin Bloom states:

"...a large part of what we call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the students' fixed beliefs."

His Outcome-Based Education (OBE) method of teaching would first be tried as Mastery Learning in Chicago schools. After five years, Chicago students' test scores had plummeted causing outrage among parents. OBE would leave a trail of wreckage wherever it would be tried and under whatever name it would be used. At the same time, it would become crucial to globalists for overhauling the education system to promote attitude changes among school students.

1967 -- Richard Nixon calls for New World Order. In Asia after Vietnam, in the October issue of Foreign Affairs, Nixon writes of nations' dispositions to evolve regional approaches to development needs and to the evolution of a "new world order."

And we thought “new world order” was a new catch phrase George Bush Sr. came up with in Desert Storm back in 1991! Actually it’s quite a bit older than even when Nixon used the phrase. The actual term was used repeatedly by Helena Blavatsky of the Theosophical Society, as well as by Alice Bailey and variations of the term were used in centuries past.

The New World Order actually began before the creation of mankind or of our physical universe. It started in heaven, within the heart of a cherub (super-class of angelic being) named Lucifer, when he said “I will” as opposed to “Thy (God’) will be done.” (Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28) Up until that point, there was only One perfect Order, and that was under the Reign of the LORD Almighty. When Lucifer rebelled, that started a second world order, or a new world order which he spread through out the Earth when he led mankind into sin and rebellion.

July 26, 1968 -- Nelson Rockefeller pledges support of the New World Order. In an Associated Press report, Rockefeller pledges that, "as President, he would work toward international creation of a new world order."

1972 -- President Nixon visits China. In his toast to Chinese Premier Chou En-lai, former CFR member and now President, Richard Nixon, expresses "the hope that each of us has to build a new world order."

1973 -- The Trilateral Commission is established. Banker David Rockefeller organizes this new private body and chooses Zbigniew Brzezinski, later National Security Advisor to President Carter, as the Commission's first director and invites Jimmy Carter to become a founding member.

1973 -- Humanist Manifesto II is published:

"The next century can be and should be the humanistic century...we stand at the dawn of a new age...a secular society on a planetary scale....As non-theists we begin with humans not God, nature not deity...we deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds....Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government....The true revolution is occurring."

One must ask the question, “What’s wrong with a world government?” For myself, having been a Star Trek fan for much of my young life (still am, now that I’m older, but not quite so fanatical . . . even though I have my very own battery powered phaser). I loved the idea of a United Federation of Planets, and that the Earth would have a singular global government that ruled the planet with peace and harmony. Sounds nice doesn’t it?

What would the Jews have done if Hitler’s conquest of Europe was complete, and then it moved onto a global scale, and he achieved a global Third Reich? Where would the Jews have to go in a Socialist Global Empire?

Even a benign global government could become corrupt and despotic later on, and then what would the man of the street do to get out from under its oppressive reign? People in almost every nation take it for granted that there are high levels of corruption in their own governments, so why would the same leaders, possessing even greater powers on a global basis behave any differently?

With the ‘checks and balances’ of sovereign nations, when one acts up, others could put it down, presuming of course that the powers that be are conducting their actions in righteousness. At the very least, a people could take refuge in other nations should their homeland become tyrannical.

Incidentally, God is against a one world government ruled by mankind; He put a stop to one at the Tower of Babel, after they blatantly disregarded His command to disperse and repopulate the world. They went in the opposite direction and built a one world political order (their city) and a one world religious order (the tower that would “reach unto heaven”). Read Genesis 9:1 and 11:1-9.

It must be stated however, that while God is oppposed to such a one world order, He Himself will establish one for His Son, the Messiah of Israel as exemplified through out the Old and New Testaments:

2 Samuel 7:11--16; Psalm 72:1-20; 89:20-37; Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:31-33; and Revelation ch's. 21 and 22 just to name a few.

Only the incorruptible Man has the integrity, the wholesomeness, the wisdom and the heart to righteously rule mankind, and it's the kingdom of the LORD Jesus Christ that shall endure eternally.


For the next part we shall conclude the analysis of the political sphere of global development, and then venture into the economic sphere, and examine how the world is even at present, unifying and blending their economies so that they are apparently inextricably linked together, just as scripture said it would be thousands of years ago.

Until then, may the LORD Jesus keep you in His grace, peace and love, amen.
