Condom Distribution at Church

Apparently, some churches have given up the fight for morality. There is a duty for the church to preach and teach holiness and right living. However, at least to one denomination it is just easier to give people condoms and hope that no one gets pregnant and no one catches a disease. This is disgusting; churches should be giving people Biblical truth and not condoms. Onenewsnow reports:

The Institute on Religion & Democracy is blasting the religious denomination of President Barack Obama for its recent stance on condom distribution inside houses of worship.

Recently, the HIV and AIDS Network of the United Church of Christ (UCC) said condoms should be handed out at places of worship. The statement was issued during a presentation to the denomination's Wider Church Ministries Board and also advocated making condoms available at faith-based educational settings.

A UCC executive said that condom distribution is a matter of life and death and that condoms should be made available to save the lives of young people.

Calling it the denomination's "moral responsibility" to make condoms available, the UCC's executive for health and wellness advocacy said "people of faith make condoms available because we have chosen life so that we and our children may live."

Surviving 2009 Part 5 What is the Blessing?

In Part 5 of this series, Pastor Jenkins explains exactly what the blessing is as described in Deuteronomy 28. Using Jewish scholarship, words are clearly defined and a Hebraic interpretation of the verses is provided. Learn the true meaning of the blessing by understanding these passages the same way the original audience would have understood them. The importance of obedience as the foundation for receiving the blessing is also emphasized.

A Straight Talking Politician

We need some politicians like this one in our government. His name is Daniel Hannan and he is a Conservative MEP for the South East of England and author of The Plan: Twelve Months to Renew Britain. He gave this speech on March 26, 2009. There are several important points that would apply to our nation.

The Tenth Commandment

We are continuing to look at the Ten Commandments and today we examine number 10: "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor's." (RSV) How can the Torah prohibit something as normal as jealousy? Once the depth of this commandment has been explained, the answer is very simple. Ever notice people don't really covet things that are inaccessible? Do men covet to be the King of England? Do women covet to the be the Queen of England? No, people covet those things that are within reach. That is why the Scripture refers to items that are within reach. However, the point is that we should consider those things within reach as out of reach. Why? It is because to God they are as inaccessible as being royalty in England. We are to consider things of others as totally inaccessible to us. That is obeying this last commandment.

It takes faith in God to see those things close by as not within reach. If God has given property or a spouse to another, then to covet what God has given to another demonstrates a lack of faith in God. Only God could have given this commandment. The government can legislate murder, theft, lying, or any other action. However, only a holy God could legislate concerning ones thoughts. This prohibition also addresses selfishness. As the Hebrew Sages say: "A covetous person will have children who dishonor him, because selfishness can lead people to overstep all bounds of decent conduct, putting selfish desires above all other considerations."

I trust as we have examined the Ten Commandments that you have seen that there is much more to them than the obvious. If we can live our lives in obedience to them, we will be a light to a dark world. The Commandments are one of God's ways to evangelize. When the lost see how we live and why, those God is calling will inquire as to why you do the things you do. Even if they don't, we should rejoice that we are living a life that is pleasing to God.

The Ninth Commandment

We are continuing to look at the Ten Commandments and today we examine number 9 "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." (RSV) In addition to prohibiting false testimony in court, this commandment also covers gossip and slander. Once again, most of us think we know the requirements of this word. Have you ever heard of the "evil tongue?" The Hebrew word for gossip is lashon hara and it means literally "the evil tongue."

Slander is speaking lies about someone. Libel is when you put the lie in the form of a writing. Most everyone knows that slander and libel are wrong. Neither of those false speakings are covered by lashon hara. The evil tongue is one that spreads a negative truth about someone. Did you catch that? A person has an evil tongue when they speak truth if that truth puts someone else in a negative light. Hebrew Sages called it the "dust of an evil tongue" to even to laugh at someones gossip or to make sarcastic comments about someone. Rabbis explained that gossip is closer to murder than robbery because while a robber can return what was stolen, the gossip can never undue all the damage he has done.

We have much to think about don't we? If I speak a truth about someone and it places them in a negative light, I have violated this commandment. Search your heart, mind, and speech over the last few days and if you find an evil tongue, repent. Then, keep going back and repent of all you can recall. We want to live the way God wants us to live and then we can truly be a light to a dark world.

The Eighth Commandment

We are continuing to look at the Ten Commandments and today we examine number 8 "Thou shalt not steal." (KJV) Once again we probably think we know what this commandment means; however, as you may suspect there is more here than meets the Gentile eye. Hebrew Sages explained this commandment as follows: "this prohibition refers specifically to only one kind of thief: a kidnapper who forces his victim to work for him and then sells him into slavery." This interpretation comes from the context found in the previous two commandments, murder and adultery, both bringing the death penalty. The only theft that would bring the death penalty resulted from kidnapping. The commandment against ordinary theft is found in Leviticus 19:11: "You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another." (RSV)

According to Hebraic thought, this commandment also covered many forms of behavior that were morally related to theft. Therefore, a failure to respond to a greeting is a theft of a fellow man's self-respect, and to win someones gratitude or regard through deceit is a form of thievery. Once again we can see that God's commandments cover more behavior than we have previously thought. Do you see the benefit of adopting the Hebraic worldview? To continue to read the Hebrew Scriptures from a Greek perspective robs our understanding of God's truth. God has given His Torah to instruct us how to live and we should desire to know the full extent of that instruction.

Today, examine whether you have stolen a man's self-respect by not responding to his greeting. Have you deceived someone by deceitfully winning their respect? By now you know that the Ten Commandments are far more than that portrayed in a Hollywood movie. Be thankful for God's Torah to us; He has provided all we need to live a life that is pleasing to Him.

The Seventh Commandment

We are continuing to look at the Ten Commandments and today we examine number 7 "Thou shalt not commit adultery." This one seems pretty straight forward doesn't it? Now Jesus, the living Torah, told us how to apply the instruction. He said in Matthew 5:27-28: "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." (RSV) This is consistent with the Hebrew Sages who said: "This commandment, too, has many levels beyond the literal one. Thus, the Sages speak of certain kinds of improper fraternization and behavior that can incite sensual lust as being tantamount to adultery itself."

But wait, there is more! It was also said that to interfere with someones livelihood is an example of this prohibition, because it showed a disregard for anothers rights. By study of this command, we can see that it goes far beyond a physical act. It includes things done that interfere with the rights of another. We are to look to our heart and attitude to verify our compliance with this commandment. The Living Torah required this approach and He is the perfect embodiment of the written Torah. One of the reasons He came to earth was to instruct us in how to live to please God. We must not casually disregard His life as our instruction.

Today, examine how you treat other people. Do you flirt with members of the opposite sex? Do you exceed the bounds of friendliness? If so, according to the Sages, you are violating the 7TH Commandment. What does your heart tell you about your relationship with others? Do you seek to take advantage of others regarding their business? We are all learning that there is much more to the Commandments then what we thought. Now we are beginning to see why study of the Torah is so important.

The Blessing

In Part 4 of this series, Pastor Jenkins describes the blessing and and shows its connection to obedience. A review of Hebraic teachings on blessings will show the importance of Torah study to having the blessings overtake you. In addition, the message concludes with a discussion of our link to Abraham's faith as essential to Abraham's blessings. If you are looking to be blessed, you should hear this word.

The Sixth Commandment

We are continuing to look at the Ten Commandments and today we examine number 6: "You shall not kill." (RSV) Now you are probably thinking that you have no problem with this one, but when we study the meaning it might prove a bit problematic. This commandment would have been at the top of the second tablet and corresponds to the first commandment, having faith in God. A person who truly believes in God as the Creator of human life would not murder. It is not a coincidence that the world's loss of faith has led to an increasing devaluing of human life. One needs only to consider the loss of approximately 3300 babies each day because of abortion to see this truth.

Hebrew sages described behaviors that were tantamount to murder although one would not be subject to the death penalty: causing significant embarrassment, failing to provide food and safety for travelers, causing someone to lose his livelihood, ruling on how to live by the Scriptures when one was not qualified, and refusing to rule when ones wisdom is needed. This shows how broad this commandment really is. How do you feel about it now? We can see that God intended to cover a much broader range than just the termination of life. Remember the words of Jesus: "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." Matthew 5:21-22

Today, don't be too quick to pass over this commandment. There are many ways to "kill" without causing physical harm. Consider your words and how you speak of others. God considers this very serious business and so should you.

The Fifth Commandment

The first four commandments focus on man's relationship to God. The last six commandments involve man's relationship with other people. The Fifth Commandment is "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the LORD your God gives you." (RSV) This command reveals the significance God attaches to parents. When people honor their parents, God regards it as if they honor Him. Hebrew sages expressed it this way: "There are three partners in a human being: God, father, and mother. If someone honors his parents, God considers it as if he had honored Him. But if not, God says, 'I did well not to live among them, for if I had dwelled among them they would have tormented Me, as well.'" It seems clear that one should always be aware that respect for ones parents is part of his obligation to God.

According to a Hebraic worldview, respect for parents is a cornerstone of faith in the entire Torah. Their tradition is based on the chain from Abraham and Sinai, a chain in which the links are successive generations of parents and children. Therefore, the Fifth Commandment is a guarantor of the previous four! To honor a parent meant to provide them with comfort, the giving of food and drink, dressing them, and escorting them. According to rabbinic teaching, the honor due parents was similar to that the first three commandments render to God. The child was not to do anything that might cause a parent to be disgraced or degraded.

As we consider this commandment, it should cause us to stop and remember our obligation to honor our parents. Even if your parents have passed away, although you may not provide for them physically, you can live your life in such a way as to bring honor to them. I don't read an expiration date, do you? Notice that honoring does not require that one always agree with a parent; however, one is required to respect them. May we not forget this Scripture as it must have been very important to God to have included it in the "Ten."

Friday, March 20, 2009

The Fourth Commandment

Today we examine the Fourth Commandment: ""Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." (RSV) My purpose is not to debate which day to worship, but instead to ask the familiar question, "What would Jesus do?" Jesus kept the Sabbath. The Scriptures tell us He was in the synagogue on the Sabbath. Mark 1:21 says: "And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught." History informs us that Constantine changed the day of worship for the Christian church from the Sabbath to Sunday (a day to worship the sun god) in an effort to break ties with the Jewish community. Regardless of the day you choose to worship, don't be fooled by arguments not based on truth.

How should we keep the Sabbath? We are "to remember" which implies we should always remember the Sabbath. The Sabbath was given to us as an instrument to come closer to God and His love for us. Six days we labor for food and shelter, but on the Sabbath we are to worship the Lord and study His Word. We are to serve God on the Sabbath and make the day special for Him. Too many make their Sabbath a family day set aside for family entertainments. This is not its purpose; the purpose is to remember God's creative work and to give Him honor. The commandment to keep the Sabbath includes not just your activities but also your attitude. We are to rest in God on the Sabbath. This would include resting as if things left undone were done so they do not interfere with our Sabbath observance.

This brief explanation of the Sabbath is designed to make you consider how you spend the Sabbath. Is it a day for you, your family, or your God? This week, after you have finished toiling for 6 days, remember the Sabbath. It is still a command and if Jesus was still physically here, where do you think you would find Him on the Sabbath? Wherever He would go, you should do likewise.

Thursday, March 19, 2009

The Third Commandment

Today, we look at the Third Commandment: "You shall not take the Name of Hashem, your God, in vain, for Hashem will not absolve anyone who takes His Name in vain. God takes His Name very seriously. Jews refer to God as "Hashem" which means "The Name" to avoid misusing His Name. This Commandment extends the prohibition seen in the Second Commandment which prohibited idolatry. Just as we would show contempt for God by making an idol, we would equally show contempt for God by using His Name for no valid purpose. The plain meaning of this verse is that it is prohibited to use God's Name casually.

Now, let us examine how we use God's Name. Do you utter the phrase, "OMG?" Do you casually use the name of God when surprised? These examples demonstrate how easy it is to violate this Commandment. Further, one should not watch television shows, movies, or other entertainment where God's Name is profaned. We are to take this very seriously because God takes it seriously. This Commandment goes way beyond using God's Name as a curse word. Most everybody knows that is wrong; this prohibition includes all casual use of His Name.

Today, watch what you say and observe. Check your entertainment time to be sure that God's Name is not being profaned by a casual use. Remember, this is God's instruction to us to live in a way that pleases Him.

Webster Dictionary Redefines Marriage

This You Tube video shows the change of definition from the 1992 edition. This promotion of homosexuality will further add to the judgment on this country. Homosexuality is sin, plain and simple. There is no authentic debate among those that believe the Torah.

The Second Commandment

Today, we look at the Second Commandment: "You shall not make yourself a carved image nor any likeness of that which is in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the water beneath the earth. You shall not prostrate yourself to them nor worship them, for I am Hashem, your God--a jealous God, who visits the sin of fathers upon children to the third and fourth generations, for My enemies; but Who shows kindness for thousands to those who love Me and observe My commandments." (Jewish Translation) This Commandment prohibits all idolatry. It is forbidden to believe in idols, to possess them, or to worship them.

In Bible days, people believed that each nation had its own gods and they had limited powers over certain territories. People worshiped their gods for prosperity and fertility. These gods did not make moral demands on the people; they only wanted worship. A person could get wealth using deception and believe that his god had blessed them. The Hebrew God YHWH was very different. YHWH demanded holiness and ethical behavior. This seems very obvious to us, but let us examine our lives. Do we use any method available to get blessed and then ask God to sanction it? Does your church use activities for church growth based on their popularity as opposed to their spiritual content? If we are going to serve God, we must eliminate all idols. You can start right but then allow an idol to slip in; be on constant guard. Check your intentions and actions.

Today, it is very easy to break the Second Commandment. Ask for the Holy Spirit's piercing examination of your motives and actions. If you find an idol, quickly repent. Idolatry must be completely put away from your self. Be careful to make it a regular practice to check to make sure that nothing has been placed before God. You will be blessed when you do; and remember Hashem is a jealous God.

The First Commandment

The First Commandment is found in Exodus 20:2-3: "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me." (KJV) However, if one would read the Jewish translation, it reads as follows: "I am Hashem (this word means "The Name" and refers to God), your God, Who has taken you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery. You shall not recognize the gods of others in My presence." This is a command to have faith in God's existence; that He is eternal and has complete and unfettered power. This command is stated as a simple fact rather than an instruction to do something. God identifies Himself not as the God of creation, but as the strong Warrior that brought salvation to Israel. God is saying as long as I exist, there are to be no gods brought into My Presence. Therefore, this prohibition is permanent.

How might one today "recognize the gods of others in God's presence?" The answer is found when we doubt His authority to bring His Word about; it happens when we speak doubt and worry. If we do these things, we are bringing a "bigger god" into Hashem's presence. We are saying in effect, that He cannot take care of whatever it is that we worry about. We live in a fallen world with problems abounding; however, our God is well able to finish what He started both in our lives and in this world. Think not that God has abrogated His authority to satan. No, God is 100% still in charge and the First Commandment demands our acknowledgement and lives manifest that truth.

Today, ask yourself, "do you think God is still in charge?" Don't be too quick to give the "right answer," Examine your actions and not your mental beliefs. What do your actions and speech say about your obedience to the First Commandment? We want to live a life that is pleasing to God and it begins right here.

Surviving 2009 Part 3

Below is the message I gave on March 15, 2009. It explores the true meaning of loving God with your heart, soul, and might, from a Hebraic perspective. Also, when we learn that based on the Hebrew text, that God did not command Abraham to offer Isaac, but instead asked him "please," it makes the lesson even more valuable. As our country struggles and falls further into national sins, we, the true church can arise and walk according to God's Law and be a light to the world.

Boycott Pepsi

I have decided to boycott Pepsi products. Now don't criticize me for doing so. I have the legal right and moral duty not to support companies that I disagree with their social agendas. Companies should focus on their businesses and stay out of social issues. However, if they choose to get involved, which they have the absolute right to do, I have an absolute right not to give them my money. Here is why I am boycotting Pepsi:

Pepsi has made no effort to hide their support for the homosexual agenda:
Pepsi gave a total of $1,000,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) to promote the homosexual lifestyle in the workplace.
Both HRC and PFLAG supported efforts in California to defeat Proposition 8 which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. HRC, which received $500,000 from Pepsi, gave $2.3 million to defeat Proposition 8.
Pepsi requires employees to attend sexual orientation and gender diversity training where the employees are taught to accept homosexuality.
Pepsi is a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

It is Coke products for me until Pepsi goes back to being neutral on these issues.

A Follow Up Word

I received this today from David Wilkerson and felt it should be posted. I believe he is on target with this message. One of the factors when considering the validity of " a word from the Lord," is the character of the person bringing it. His character is established as a man of God. I am hearing him. Remember, the Hebraic concept of hearing means that you must respond with action. It is not just audibly hearing someone; it is acting on what you have heard. When Jesus said, "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear," (Matthew 13:9)He was not doing a hearing test. He was calling for obedience to His Words. Read the following prayerfully.

Recently I felt compelled to send out an URGENT message warning of an impending great calamity — such that will cause even God’s elect to tremble.

One Bishop asked, “Is there no further word: How should the righteous respond to such a word?”

I can only answer by sharing what the Holy Spirit is speaking to my own heart and what I am to do. I shared that I was led in a practical way to lay aside a month’s supply of food — because I have witnessed the panic in the wake of terrorism. That has to be a personal word for every individual.

This is what I hear the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart concerning my own spiritual response to impending calamity. It is simply this —STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.

“And Moses said to the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show you today…The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:13-14).

This is the attitude of faith in the face of calamity. What could Israel do on the brink of the Red Sea ? Pharaoh’s army is pressing in, mountains are on both sides, and there is an impossible sea ahead. The flesh cries, “Do something!”

The flesh cries hopelessness. Can God’s people dry up the sea? Level a mountain? Fight a great army without having weapons? They are in what appears to be a dreadful, frightening situation. God’s people tremble — and in this hour of trembling comes a word from God. In essence:

“Stand still. Fear not. This is the hour of salvation. You are going to witness the pulling down of the foundations of a world power. But in the same hour, I will fight for you. Hold your peace — be still and see my works.”

Beloved, my warning is just one voice among many who are saying the same thing. We may all tremble for a season, but those who truly know God’s Word will be quickly comforted by the Holy Spirit. We will be baptized with a great peace — a supernatural quietness — which will be a tremendous witness to the fearful multitudes.

Surviving 2009 Part 2

In Part 2 of the Surviving 2009 Series, Pastor Jenkins teaches on Joshua 1:8. Learn how your words matter to God and how to Biblically meditate. Hearing the word requires that action follow the speaking. Also, in this message, Pastor Jenkins distinguishes between Hebraic meditation and the Word of Faith movement made famous by Hagin, Copeland, Dollar and others. In addition, learn what the Hebrew words for prosperity and success really mean.

More Anti Israel Policy From America

As reported today:

President Barack Obama's administration has sparked controversy with its choice for chairman of the National Intelligence Council — a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia who has staunchly supported anti-Israel views.

In his new post, Charles W. Freeman — who was ambassador from 1989 to 1992 and served during Operation Desert Storm — will be responsible for overseeing the production of National Intelligence Estimates and other intelligence data.

The Power Line blog observed that “Saudi shill” Freeman’s “loyalty to Saudi Arabia and his outside-the-mainstream views on the Middle East make him a strange choice for the post, to say the least.”

I have been consistently urging Christians to watch the Obama administration turn on Israel. This is another example of America turning its back on Israel. Expect more financial judgment and perhaps an international crisis in the next few weeks.

An Urgent Warning to America

I have been saying that we were under the judgment of God since the election. The economy is in shambles and tensions in the Middle East will reveal our abandonment of Israel. It is going to get worse, much worse. Please read the below E-Mail I received from David Wilkinson. I suggest you take it very seriously.

"I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world.


For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires—such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.

There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting—including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written,

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3).

God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.

The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).

In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation.


First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. Lay in store a thirty-day supply of food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.

As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).

I will say to my soul: No need to run…no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take—trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.

Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose."

God bless and keep you.
In Christ,

It Is About God Not Government

I have reached a point that it is hard to look at the news anymore. I am tired of all the man made efforts that refuse to include God in the answer. The Democrats want us to spend our way out of this economic mess. The Republicans want a different approach using tax cuts to increase jobs. Neither side includes God in the answer and God is the only answer. Let us examine II Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." The Hebrew word for humble is kana and it means to bend the knee, to fold together, to be low, and to submit oneself as a package to the Lord to be what He pleases and to go wherever the Lord wills. Without humbling, there will be no healing of the land. Our government refuses to humble; it wants to fight and blame others for the mess we are in. The truth is, that we are in this mess because we as a nation have rejected God. He is out of our schools, our commerce, and our government. Is there any wonder that we find ourselves in this dilemma? Congress, White House, and all government officials, begin by humbling yourself before the mighty hand of God. He will lead us; God opens the windows of heaven for repentance and humility. Forget the news, get low, real low before Him and perhaps He will heal this mess.

Things Worsen for America

I have been warning that America is starting the turn on Israel. This will cause an increase in the judgment of God. The judgment will be pervasive on our economy. God knows what Americans love most, money! As things worsen, don't think that the legislation promoted by a Godless Congress will bail us out. Obama's economic stimulus plan is not going to work. The wheels are beginning to fall off. The Mail Online, an United Kingdom news service reports Hillary's collision course with Israel:

"Hillary Clinton put America on a collision course with Israel today after pledging to press for a Palestinian state.

The U.S. Secretary of State's position brings her into conflict with the Israeli Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu.

Although Netanyahu has spoken of Palestinian self-government, he has shied away from a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict."

The only answer is national repentance; the church must cry out and speak the truth. It may not work; America may have gone too far, but it is our duty.

Surviving 2009

I told you so. I told you that with our government making decision after decision against God, it was going to get worse. Read the following report from Yahoo Finance:

Dow breaks 7,000 for first time since '97 as AIG gets more gov't funding, posts $61.7B loss

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Dow Jones industrial average has fallen below 7,000 for the first time in more than 11 years.
The market, battered by the recession and worries about financial companies, tumbled again Monday after insurer American International Group Inc. posted a staggering $61.7 billion in quarterly losses and accepted another bailout from the government.

According to preliminary calculations, the Dow is down nearly 300 points at 6,763.06. It is the Dow's lowest finish since April 25, 1997.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index is down 34 at 700, while the Nasdaq composite index is down 55 at 1,322.

About 15 stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was a heavy 1.96 billion shares.

I must be blunt. Read the book of Ecclesiastes; when you are finished there are two choices. You either turn to God or kill yourself. Why? The reason is that without God all is vanity and waste. For those who want to survive this mess with God, the below video will provide clear teaching to surviving 2009.
