Salvation Is Free, But...Thou Must Bend Thy Knee

'Jesus stood and cried, saying, if any man thirst let him come unto me'

Standing in front of them, they knew him not. The knee must be bowed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ before a man can know him, for he is "KING OF KINGS AND LORD of LORDS" (Rev. 19:16). This the religious Jews of that time refused to do. They would not 'receive' him. Laodicean Christendom today is in the exact same condition (Rev. 3:17). As for speaking the language of 'Christianese', they know it well, but with unbowed knee, they know not him of whom they speak. Highly regarded bible teacher of the past A.W. Pink elaborates on this point with this exhortation for those who have ears to hear:
****************
"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water...
Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?" (John 7:37-38, 40-42).

Here is another illustration of an acquaintance with the letter of the Word which failed to regulate the walk. These people could quote prophecy while they rejected Christ! How vain is an intellectual knowledge of spiritual things when unaccompanied by grace in the heart! These men knew where Christ was to be born. They referred to the Scriptures as though familiar with their contents. And yet the eyes of their understanding were not enlightened. The Messiah Himself stood before them, but they knew Him not. What a solemn warning is there here for us! A knowledge of the letter of Scripture is not to be despised, far from it: would that all the Lord’s people today were as familiar with the Word as probably these Jews were. It is a cause for deep thankfulness if we were taught to read and memorize Scripture from our earliest childhood. But while a knowledge of the letter of Scripture is to be prized, it ought not to be over-estimated. It is not sufficient that we are versed in the historical facts of the Bible, nor that we have a clear grasp, intellectually, of the doctrines of Christianity. Unless our hearts are affected and our lives moulded by God’s Word, we are no better off than a starving man with a cook book in his hand.
There are many today who, like these men of old, can quote the Scriptures readily and accurately, and yet who give no evidence that they have been born again. An experiential acquaintance with Christ is the one thing needful. A heart knowledge of God’s truth is the vital thing, and it is that which no schooling or seminary training can confer. If you have discovered the plague of your own heart; if you have seen yourself as a lost sinner, and have received as yours the sinner’s Savior; if you have tasted for yourself that the Lord is gracious; if you are now, not only a hearer but a doer of the Word; then, abundant cause have you to thank God for thus enlightening you. You may be altogether ignorant of Hebrew and Greek, but if you know Him, whom to know is life eternal, and if you sit daily at His feet to be taught of Him, then have you that which is above the price of rubies. But O make quite sure on the point, dear reader. You cannot afford to remain in uncertainty. Rest not, until by Divine grace you can say, "One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. And if your eyes have been opened, pray God daily to give you a better heart-knowledge of His Word.

South American Union To Integrate Militarily

UNASUR approves creation of S. American defense, health councils

SAUIPE COAST, Brazil, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- The extraordinary summit of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) approved Tuesday the creation of South American councils of defense and health.
The creation of the South American Council of Defense was initiated by Brazil to integrate the armed forces of the region.
Unasur members have approved the initiation in closed-door meetings in Sauipe Coast, a beach resort in northeast Brazil, Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim told a press conference.
"The council aims to have a common vision of the region's defense based on mutual trust and the emphasis is on cooperation, training and equipment issues," Amorim said.
---------------------------------------------
re: "integrate the armed forces of the region"
With blinding speed the sovereign nations of the world are being reorganized into a new world-governance system of 'integrated regions'. A perfect example of this are the 12-nations of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Paraguay, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela, aka UNASUR. Having already begun to merge the separate legal systems, and establishing a 'regional parliament' to govern the region, no time is being wasted in taking the next step of military integration, as seen in the above article (see specific links below for more details). All in little more than seven months.

The military integration of South America is a highly significant development. The world's self-proclaimed 'elite' rulers will, again, require a military rule to establish and to maintain control over the planet. You are seeing the plan unfold. UNASUR is setting the example and blazing a trail in their 'region'. Back at home, the soon-to-be
North American Union (Canamerexico) is not far behind. see: U.S.-Canada joint military
The birthing of this totalitarian one world government can no longer be hidden but is happening so quickly that few are aware. Be one of those who are. (follow links, connect dots...including important biblical prophecy dots too)

Global 'Civil Unrest' Buzz Growing Louder by The Day

The riots have begun. Civil protest is breaking out in cities across Russia, China, and beyond

Greece has been in turmoil for 11 days. The mood seems to have turned "pre-insurrectionary" in parts of Athens - to borrow from the Marxist handbook.

This is a foretaste of what the world may face as the "crisis of capitalism" - another Marxist phase making a comeback - starts to turn two hundred million lives upside down.

We are advancing to the political stage of this global train wreck. Regimes are being tested. Those relying on perma-boom to mask a lack of democratic or ancestral legitimacy may try to gain time by the usual methods: trade barriers, sabre-rattling, and barbed wire."

If we are not able to do that, then social unrest may happen in many countries, including advanced economies.
--------------------------------------------
re: "and beyond"

Instigating civil protest i.e. riots to establish military rule? Could it happen here?

It is daily appearing more and more as if the NWO 'architects of chaos' are setting the stage for their next move, playing the 'civil unrest' card to create opportunities to begin instituting 'martial law' as the solution.

The above article is typical of many that are being put forth lately from various sources, all of which are actually introducing this new concept of 'civil unrest' into the public consciousness. That is the first step. Planting the seed, if you will. The next step is to send in the agent provocateurs, i.e. the professional 'inciters' and trained organizers. Their job is to make it actually happen...just like in Greece.

There is even now quite a bit of this sort of talk surrounding the 'Obama-ineligible' issue. see Constitutional Crisis to Create 'Unrest'? 12-17-08

...and the facts are that police training is already underway:

'Civil Unrest' Buzz Growing; Arizona Police Ready 12-17-08: "State and local police in Arizona say they have broad plans to deal with social unrest, including trouble resulting from economic distress."

The global government agenda is in a very late stage of development, part of which is military rule of the entire planet. Believe it or not.

Note: If in the future this were to happen, do not be drawn in...it's a set up. see: 'Homelanders' Being Trained For 'Civil Unrest'? and part II (follow up). Be aware.

SCOTUS/Obama Update: 2nd Berg Conference To Stay Election Result Scheduled

Supremes schedule 2nd eligibility conference for Berg case wnd

A second conference
has been posted on the docket for the U.S. Supreme Court over the issue of Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the White House, this one scheduled a week after Congress is to review the Electoral College vote tabulation.
The latest issue posted is a request for an injunction on the election results pending the resolution of a petition for a writ of certiorari filed by attorney Philip J. Berg, a case that is docketed for a similar conference among the justices on Jan. 9.
Berg's original case raises questions about Obama's eligibility and his injunction request first was filed early in December. It was submitted to and rejected by two different justices before it came before Justice Antonin Scalia on Dec. 18. Then just before Christmas the docket was updated to reflect that the motion had been "distributed for conference of January 16, 2009."
"I am appalled that the main stream media continues to ignore this issue as we are headed to a 'Constitution Crisis, [sic]'" Berg wrote.
---------------------------------------------------
fyi: There has been somewhat of a lull in the 'Obama-no certificate/SCOTUS no-action' drama and it's a bit of waiting game now, but it has definitely not gone away. Here's the latest update:

Berg's original case is scheduled for SCOTUS conference 1-9-'09, the day after the U.S. Congress meets (1-8-'09) to formally ratify the 12-15-'08 Electoral College vote. A second motion by Berg has now also been accepted by the Supreme Court on the third time around and is scheduled for conference on 1-16-'09. This new motion is an injunction asking the court for a stay on the validation of the 'Election 2008' result. The second conference, four days before the 'inauguration' date of 1-20-'09, will presumably be pointless unless Berg's 1-9-'09 case is granted a full hearing.
Berg is still promising that a 'Constitutional Crisis' is a certainty if the courts and congress continue to refuse to address the issue. Still impossible to call but the 'pretender-prez' conspiracy looks to be heating up again soon. stay tuned

Germany Calls For "International Authority" to Handle 'Somalia Pirates'

Germany Calls for International Court to Prosecute Somalia Pirates

Germany wants an international court to be established for prosecuting Somali pirates who have attacked numerous vessels, causing a threat to global trade, Reuters reported.
"It needs to be an international authority. No one wants a 'Guantanamo on the sea'," German Defense Minister Franz Josef Jung said.
He was in Djibouti for a send off of 220 German troops who will be joining a European Union anti-piracy mission.
-------------------------------------------------------
re: 'international court'

Apparently, the so-called Somalian pirates, those elusive bandits who are now to be hunted down on land (see update link above) are presenting quite a dilemma for the 'international community'. The problem, in regard to those 'pirates' whom the combined navies and military might of the world do manage to catch and bring back alive, is in determining who has jurisdiction to prosecute them for 'crimes' perpetrated against nations other than their own. The ingenious solution to the 'problem'? ...establish an international court.

A global government must by definition have (quote) "international authority", and it appears that the perfect justification may have been found to create a new court with that necessary NWO international authority.

Milking the Somalia 'pirate-chaos' for all it's worth...ordo ab chao one world government style.

Fed Gobbles Up GMAC En Route To 666

Fed Allows GMAC Financial To Become Bank Holding Co

As part of the approval, the Fed is requiring GM and Cerberus Capital Management LP to reduce their ownership stakes in Detroit-based GMAC. GM owns 49% of GMAC, a subsidiary it founded in 1919. Cerberus owns 51%.

GM must reduce its ownership interest in GMAC to less than 10% in voting shares and total equity. Cerberus, which owns Chrysler, must reduce its interest to a maximum of 14.9% in voting shares and 33% in total equity.
-----------------------------------------------
re: Fed is requiring GM, Chrysler to reduce GMAC ownership

Simple as can be. By 'emergency declaration', meaning no oversight of any kind, the so-called deal to 'save' auto-financing giant GMAC by converting it to a bank holding company, coming with the attached strings of a total loss of controlling ownership of the company, now makes GMAC essentially nothing more than just another branch of the unaccountable entity that calls itself the Federal Reserve. compare:

Bearing Witness Against The Darkness

This was written 114 yrs. ago...how much more true at this late hour approaching 2009.
"As the morning approaches (and oh how near it is!) the Lord would awaken His saints to be living lives which are a standing witness to the God who has justified and supremely blessed believers - the light bearing witness against the darkness.." E.L.B.
***
"The night is far spent."

I wish, if possible, to awaken the thoughts of all readers to the force of the apostle's words at the end of the thirteenth chapter of Romans - "It is high time to awake out of sleep."
Perhaps a short retrospect up to apostolic times would be of service to our souls, for the night has advanced still since the Holy Ghost aroused the Roman saints. The hands have moved on upon the dial-plate, and are now pointing very nearly to that hour when dials shall vanish and be no more. The day is at hand, the day when the glory of the rejected Christ shall shine through the universe, and when those who have been faithful to Him through the long night, shall reign with Him in splendour.
Let us understand clearly the force of the expression, 'the night,' for I believe it to be important in this pretentious age for Christians to get back to the simple expressions of the early times (I mean early in the true sense, the times of Peter and Paul), and to understand what the Holy Spirit says of the present testimony. In the simplest language, then, we may say that at Rome, when Paul wrote, there was an assembly of justified saints called to live a holy life here by the Holy Ghost, and to await the day when they should reign with Christ; the present time was called the night. And it is night still, whatever may be said as to progress. The Roman believers were surrounded by the glories of Rome in her splendour; they were in the very centre of the world, but they had nothing in common with it. Its works were the works of darkness, and they were called upon to put on the armour of light.
How many changes have taken place since then! The huge iron empire has fallen, the whole face of Europe has changed, the middle ages have run out, and the immense activities of man's mind, discoveries, inventions, have brought in the so-called enlightened state of the nineteenth century. All this is a part of the long night.
The history of Christendom too is most interesting, for God has worked both in restoring souls and in recovering truth, and that whilst the enemy was sowing tares, and carrying out his nefarious schemes. Much might be said about Arianism, the Eastern schism, the apparition of Mahomet, the history of the popes, the reformation, modern heresy and unbelief; but the point is, that the whole of the world's history up to the appearing of Christ in glory is summed up in one short word - the night.
More than 1850 years ago Jesus died upon the cross between two thieves, and surely from that time, that is when the world crucified the Son of God, the very blackest darkness settled down upon this earth, and enveloped the whole system where man cultivates the arts and sciences without God. It is night. Is there not one ray of hope then for the world? Not one!
It is very likely that this paper may fall into the hands of some one who has not yet really understood what the night means. I think many true Christians have not the true sense of it. It might be said, "But we are not in pagan Rome, nor in the dark middle ages; the world has become civilized, Christianized, and there is good everywhere!" Many have spoken to me thus; and I should always reply, "Yes, there are churches everywhere with the sign of the cross, just as there are mosques with the crescent, but how much real Christianity is there in Christendom?" And again, "Is it not too true that we are living in days when rampant infidelity is ready to throw off all restraint and the very name of Christ?" It is night.
Oh, beloved brethren, are we really awake? Much has happened lately to shake the slumber of the most sleepy. Our salvation is nearer than when we believed, and we are called upon to cast off the works of darkness, and to put on the armour of light.
"Are we to be fanatics, neglecting work and duties?" No, the very contrary. There is an honest walk, as in day time; that is, morally enlightened and proof against the evil of the present age, protected by the armour of light. As the morning approaches (and oh how near it is!) the Lord would awaken His saints to be living lives which are a standing witness to the God who has justified and supremely blessed believers - the light bearing witness against the darkness. The enemy has succeeded in making black appear white on various occasions, but God is above all his power and deceit, and there is nothing which so much confounds him and his whole system as the walk of Christians clad in the armour of the light in the midst of the darkness. "The night is far spent, the day is at hand." E. L. Bevir. 1894

NWO 'Regime Change' In Africa: Somalia, Zimbabwe Pending, Guinea Successful

Military takes control in Guinea

Guinea's army has announced that it has dissolved the country's government and suspended the constitution, hours after the death of President Lansana Conte.
Mr Conte had ruled the West African country with an iron fist since 1984.
In a state radio statement, Capt Moussa Dadis Camara said a "consultative council" of civilian and military leaders would be set up in their place.
The precise circumstances of the president's death are not yet known, but he had been suffering from diabetes.
Only hours after the speaker of parliament announced President Conte's death, Capt Camara went on state radio to say that the army had taken over, and a body called the National Council for Development and Democracy set up.
"As of today, the constitution is suspended as well as political and union activity," he said.
"The government and the institutions of the republic have been dissolved."
The African Union was "pre-occupied and keenly monitoring" the developments in Conakry, a senior official told the AFP news agency.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
re: constitution suspended...government dissolved
Upon the sudden and unexplained death of the non-NWO-integrating ruler of the West African country of Guinea, Lansana Conte, the "regime change" necessary for the globalization of the country has been accomplished in a stunningly dramatic fashion. All in a matter of hours the government is dissolved, the constitution is suspended, the army has taken over, and something called the "National Council for Development and Democracy" is up and running.
It looks very much at this point like Guinea is being made the newest member of the now economically-integrating African 'Regional Union' (10-'08).
As the last few 'rogue' states are being corralled, the transition from sovereign nations to the regional system of world government is happening with blinding speed. This is the fulfilling of bible prophecy. Look up Christian, your redemption draws nigh (Luke 21:28).

U.S., Canadian Governments Taking Over Auto Industry In 'Joint Venture'

Canada, Ontario to Give GM, Chrysler C$4 Billion Aid

Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC will get C$4 billion ($3.3 billion) in government loans from Canada and the province of Ontario, a day after the U.S. agreed to aid to keep the two automakers operating.

General Motors’ Canadian unit will receive C$3 billion while Chrysler is set to get C$1 billion, the two governments said today. Borrowers must accept limits on executive compensation and also report “material transactions in excess of C$125 million or more,” the two governments said in a joint statement.

“We will not allow catastrophic collapse” of the industry, Harper said. “But the auto companies have to change the way they do their business in a very serious way.”
---------------------------------------------------------
re: two governments...joint statement
(quote) "BINGO: The ordo ab chao strategy may be finally coming clear on this one. A North American Union aka Canamerexico auto-industry merger. Regional world government by stealth...this is how it's done."
Out of the closet and into the light of day, the 'intercontinental consolidation' of Canada, America, and Mexico (North American Union) for the new regional system of world government cannot be disguised any longer. Such is the case here with this obviously induced automotive industry 'chaos' and the resultant 'solution'. It is all so clear now...the whole production has simply been more of the fictional 'b-plot' NWO globalization script. Under the pretext of financial collapse the banking system and mortgage industry have already been taken over, the insurance giants have been absorbed, and the way is now opened to begin the regional merging of the U.S. and Canadian governments with this joint-venture auto industry takeover.
These so-called government loans, which by-the-way are nothing more than just a part of the whole staged production, are only a first step in taking absolute control of the automakers and all related private industries. And it will not stop there. It is a GLOBAL management scheme that is being implemented. Every financial transaction worldwide will eventually be controlled within the one world system. This is how they are getting there.
One more important point to note on the subject of the automotive industry. In the 'green' future world of global micromanagement, aka sustainable development, the personal automobile will have become a thing of the past. That is where this is really heading. Watch and see. see: unsustainables

SAUIPE COAST, Brazil, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Leaders from 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries here on Wednesday called for "the gradual creation of a new regional financial architecture."

"According to the Declaration of Salvador, adopted after the first Summit of Latin America and the Caribbean on Integration and Development (SLAC).....The Latin American and the Caribbean countries need to integrate financial markets at regional and subregional levels with adequate mechanisms for monitoring and regulation, said the declaration."

Convened by the Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, the SLAC brought together for the first time in Latin America's history 33 leaders from South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
----------------------------------------------
re: integrate financial markets at regional and subregional levels

No sooner is the ink drying on the new agreements regarding the grouping and integrating of the Latin American and the Caribbean nations into their respective one world government 'regional unions' than the call comes for the three different 'regional unions' to also begin the process of financially integrating themselves at the same time.

Plain and simple for any to see...the rapid transitioning of the nations of the world into a single economic system is occurring at the highest levels ever seen, crossing all borders and extending to the "regional and subregional levels" of the new global system. This single financial system is described in the Word of God as the mark of the beast, or the 666. Eventually, no man will buy or sell without the mark of the beast.
The exact scenario is developing at warp speed, believe it or not.

"SACRAMENTO, California, Dec. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- California pro-family leader Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, issued this following response to California Attorney General Jerry Brown filing briefs today urging the California Supreme Court to invalidate Proposition 8, which defined marriage as only between a man and a woman:

"It's appalling that Jerry Brown is violating his oath of office to 'support and defend' the written Constitution of California. He is disobeying his specific job description found in the Constitution, which is 'to see that the laws of the State are...enforced.' And Jerry Brown is not telling the truth when he says the Constitution provides homosexual couples the 'right to marry.' On the contrary, the Constitution reads that marriage is 'only between a man and a woman.' This is the same Constitution that he has sworn an oath to support and defend and which his job description requires him to enforce. It's very disturbing that California's Attorney General is against the Constitution, against the voters, and against the rule of law. Was someone else impersonating Jerry Brown on January 9, 2007 when he raised his right hand, swore to uphold the written Constitution of California, and repeatedly vowed to enforce the law?""

California Attorney General reverses self, asks state high court to overturn Prop. 8


(12-19) 19:25 PST SAN FRANCISCO -- State Attorney General Jerry Brown, in a surprise turnabout, asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to overturn Proposition 8, saying the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage violates basic rights guaranteed in the state Constitution.

Brown, who is required to defend state laws unless he cannot find reasonable legal grounds to do so, said after Prop. 8 passed Nov. 4 that he would support the initiative before the state's high court.

But in a lengthy filing late Friday, he argued that the measure was "inconsistent with the guarantees of individual liberty" in California's governing charter

The authors of the state Constitution, he said, did not intend "to put a group's right to enjoy liberty to a popular vote."

The court is reviewing lawsuits filed by gay and lesbian couples and by an array of local governments, led by San Francisco, that contend that ballot measure exceeded the legal limits on initiatives by destroying fundamental rights and stripping judges of their authority to protect a historically persecuted minority.

The justices could hear the cases as early as March and would be required to rule within 90 days. Other interested parties on both sides are scheduled to submit written arguments Jan. 15.
Asked why he had changed the position he took after the election, Brown told KCBS radio that since his initial comments, "we've spent weeks researching all the cases, really looking at this law, reflecting on it, going back and forth."
With the help of senior attorneys in his office, he said, he concluded that the public's right to change the Constitution was outweighed in this case by "the duty of the court to protect minorities, to protect the fundamental liberties for which the Constitution is created."
---------------------------------------
re: Brown asks Supreme Court to overturn will of the people
The homosexual agenda continues on it's mad course toward a headlong plunge into the abyss aided and abetted by a vast array of co-conspirators (see 'Obama' at top) including State Attorney Generals, and by twisting truth, outright lying, and a masterful distorting of interpretations of words and legal clauses...e.g. to oppose homosexual marriage is now an act of "destroying fundamental rights". For another example, Brown is quoted as saying that it is the "duty of the court to protect...fundamental liberties". That 'twist of logic' raises a question though: Who will protect the "fundamental liberties" of innocent children of being safeguarded from being the target of homosexual proselytizers flooding into the school districts armed with their legal papers?
With blinded minds and seared consciences, the multitudes of the ungodly of this world have cast away all restraints, and God in turn has cast them away. The result of this is that the world is now, entering 2009, being enveloped in a thick palpable darkness.
It is a fearful thing to see the depths of depravity the human heart is capable of when the LORD God Almighty turns man over to his own ways. here

Interesting to note that the conference is set for the day after Congress meets to count the Electoral college votes.

This will be the third SCOTUS conference on the Obama no-certificate issue, but just the first one challenging the Hawaiian-born claim. The two cases already rejected ignored were based upon the aspect of the British citizenship of Obama's father, which under British law at the time would automatically have made Obama a British subject also, regardless of birthplace.

NY School Protesters Stomp 'Establishment' And Walk Away Scot Free

follow up on 'Homelanders' Being Trained For 'Civil Unrest'? 12-19-08: "About 75 students barricaded themselves in a dining hall at the New School on Wednesday night, holding what they called an occupation to protest the leadership of the institution’s embattled president, Bob Kerrey."

School Protesters Claim Victory, Get Amnesty December 19, 2008
"At the beginning of the protest, students had said they would not leave the cafeteria unless Mr. Kerrey and other administrators resigned. But as the occupation grew in size and stretched into a second day, a new consensus seemed to emerge, with some students saying it was it unlikely that Mr. Kerrey would agree to such stipulations and instead advocating goals that they said had a better chance of success."
"The New School Free Press, said in a phone call that the students decided to leave after the university’s embattled president, Bob Kerrey, agreed to four demands: amnesty for students participating in the demonstration; student participation in selecting a new provost; creation of a committee on socially responsible investment, with student representation; and the replacement in other New School buildings of space that will be lost because of the demolition of 65 Fifth Avenue, including a library and a 7,000 square foot reading room."
"According to Mr. Dugan, student mediators announced around 2:30 a.m. that Mr. Kerrey had agreed to the four terms. Those inside the cafeteria held a lengthy discussion before voting to leave, he said, emerging onto side streets whooping in jubilation."

re: "whooping in jubilation"
Message from first formal 'civil unrest' demonstration in New York?: Civil unrest is fast, painless, and victorious. Students/protesters controlled the action start to finish and the 'establishment' bowed to their superior power. Not only that, but after you get what you want you can be granted amnesty too. Nothing to it. After that...it's parrrrty time....see: 'Homelanders' Being Trained For 'Civil Unrest'? for full story.

NWO: Shutting Down America Piece By Piece

Three current examples pertaining to the reposted article and comment below. The article was primarily addressing bank closures but also mentioned that the ongoing bankruptcies would also impact, quote: "other mainstays of U.S. towns and cities". It is really happening. America is being systematically shut down, including the "mainstays of U.S. towns and cities" like the auto manufacturers. The Zionists/globalists are finished with this country and are transitioning it into the regional world government system. Ruling the whole globe is the only goal. Be informed:
****
Big Three's future still in balance
Plans for lengthy plant shutdowns hint at a turning point in automaker history.
Toyota Pulling Back
As expected, Toyota is delaying the opening of a new Prius plant in Mississippi...as part of a big shakeup of the company’s U.S. production...Toyota will wait until the market starts picking up.
Bankers: FDIC rules will ban new banks
The FDIC, the nation’s bank deposit guarantor, has increased scrutiny of new banks applying for deposit insurance in select areas of the Southeast and other regions, including Western states, industry insiders said.
The new reviews, insiders said, make approval difficult in practice, if not impossible.

Analyst: Hundreds Of Banks Will Fail

"The United States is in the second inning of a recession that will last for at least 18 months and help kill off hundreds of banks, influential economist and New York University Professor Nouriel Roubini told Barron's in Sunday's edition."

"As for the banks that will go bankrupt, they will include community banks that finance homes, stores, downtown areas, commercial real estate and other mainstays of U.S. towns and cities, Roubini said."

re: "kill off banks..that finance homes, stores, downtown areas, commercial real estate, and other mainstays.."
The time is fast approaching, and is even now begun, for the drastic steps that must be taken to accomplish the transformation of this country and the subjection of it's people to their global kingdom which might rightly be called the 'New Tower of Babel'. It was only a few months back when the call for a 'banking-new-world-order' was sounded, and the program is about to explode apparently. That program is one of 'consolidation' of everything financial, to be brought into the coffer's of the 'kingdom'.
"Transform" is the correct word. Everything, i.e. life as we know it, must be radically changed and an entirely 'new way' of life on the planet constructed if the occultic dreams of the Babylonian Tower builders are to come to fruition, that they may install themselves as demigod rulers over the planet. The "mainstays" of the present society will need to be removed to bring about the desired transformation...and that phase is about to shift into high gear...as inferred from the statements above.
Rough water ahead, be informed...because they 'aren't playing' anymore. The time has come to set the capstone, the 'eye' of Horus...the 'sun god', down on the top of the pyramid (see photo), symbolizing the realization of their 'new order of the ages' (novus ordo seclorum). This is to be a time of Evil personified. The coming of the 'cosmic christ', etc. aka Antichrist.
And just as "it is written", it will all happen, but too bad for them because it won't last, for they are only bringing upon themselves "the fierce anger of the LORD" (Jer. 51:45). In the meantime, there is only one answer... "My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver every man his soul..." (Jer. 51:45; cf. Rom. 10:13). Bible search tool on right

'Homelanders' Being Trained For 'Civil Unrest'?

NY Students Occupy School Building
By THE NEW YORK TIMES December 18, 2008
About 75 students barricaded themselves in a dining hall at the New School on Wednesday night, holding what they called an occupation to protest the leadership of the institution’s embattled president, Bob Kerrey.

As word of the protest spread and the group grew larger, a list of demands was produced. Those included Mr. Kerrey’s removal as well as the ouster of James Murtha, the university’s executive vice president, and Robert Millard, the treasurer of the school’s board of trustees. The students said they wanted more of a voice in school matters and full disclosure of the school’s investments.
This is about starting a dialogue,” said Marcus Michelson, a student in a master’s program at the school. “And to do that you have to be seen as an equal. People just don’t give equality away, you have to take it.”
------------------------------------------
re: occupation to protest the leadership
The post today is a follow up on this post from yesterday 12-17-08, 'Civil Unrest' Buzz Growing; Arizona Police Ready which asked these questions:
Civil unrest in this country as a pretext to fast forward martial law? Are the agents provocateurs (instigators) already at work?
Whoop there it is. The second of the two questions above has been answered in less than twenty-four hours. The Bureau of Propaganda's 'Civil Unrest 101' training program for disconcerted homelanders is now officially underway as agents provocateurs in a New York school demonstrate through role playing as 'protesters" that the idea of 'revolution' is actually feasible. In this enacted scenario the students have barricaded themselves and are demanding the removal of an "embattled president", vice-president, and a treasurer. The protesters/students have adopted some 'revolutionary' slogans already. They want "more of a voice"..but since "people won't give equality"...."you have to take it".
"You have to take it?" Pure psychological propaganda.
Again, back in the real world, the NWO homeland-transition strategists may be attempting to foment some 'unrest' toward an "embattled president" with a no-certificate issue that may still develop into a "constitutional crisis". If this were the case, the first of the two questions above would then also be answered. The answer would be in the affirmative. Can you see through it? for more details see: SCOTUS Or Not, Obama Certificate Issue Still Growing
The Obama 'civil unrest law enforcement/military intervention and/or civilian militia intervention' buzz is getting louder and louder. Do not be deceived.

Partake Not Of Her Sins

"Some Christians have told me that they are to remain in Laodicea until the Lord gives them a call to leave. He has given the call. It is here and what is happening and will happen is the separation of God's true church from the church of the world, the church of the apostasy and of Laodicea. But you say, "Where am I going?" Well, go first to the Lord and then you will have fellowship with the true saints of God. When you get into the fellowship of the true saints of God you get power, you get blessing, you have the reality of the Lord and He is going to use you." Arno C. Gaebelein (1919)

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

U.N. Greenlights Brutal NWO Somalia Invasion

U.N. Authorizes Land, Air Attacks on Somali Pirates

UNITED NATIONS, Dec. 16 -- The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Tuesday to authorize nations to conduct military raids, on land and by air, against pirates plying the waters off the Somalia coast even as two more ships were reportedly hijacked at sea.

The U.S.-drafted resolution authorizes nations to "use all necessary measures that are appropriate in Somalia" in pursuit of pirates, as long as they are approved by the country's transitional federal government. The resolution also urges states to deploy naval vessels and military aircraft to carry out the operations, and it calls for the creation of a regional office to coordinate the international effort.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned that Somalia may descend into "chaos" by the end of the month, when an Ethiopian occupation force leaves the country. He said his efforts to muster an international force strong enough to stabilize the situation have been unsuccessful.

Ban rejected Rice's proposal for a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Somalia, suggesting that conditions there were not secure enough. Instead, he asked the Security Council to increase funding for a financially strapped
African Union force that has struggled to secure strategic sea and air ports.
The commander of the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet warned last week that ground attacks on suspected Somali pirates would put the lives of innocent civilians at risk. Rice told reporters Tuesday, "What we do or do not do in cases of hot pursuit we'll have to see, and you'll have to take it case by case."

re: innocent civilians at risk
update on: NWO Somalia 'Integration' Phase II: Hunt 'Pirates' On Land 12-12-08:
"The United States has requested international authorisation for countries pursuing Somali pirates to hunt them down on land." (see post/comments for full details)

The U.N. security Council has granted permission to "authorize nations" to conduct military raids in Somalia. Somalia is now to be 'officially' forced into submission to the NWO by military strikes "on land and by air". Bombed into submission perhaps?
There will be no U.N. peacekeeping mission to follow up this time says Ban Ki-moon. Rather than that, increased funding for the fledgling "African Union" is needed so that they can be trained to police their own new NWO 'global region', which will include Somalia whether they like it or not. see Pirates And NWO Somali Takeover 11-20-08: "Will not Somalia be forced to integrate into the new African 'Regional Union' (see post/comments)
The building of the Antichrist global system of 'regional governments' is nearing completion (here). A few rogue states remain outside of the control network but this will not be tolerated, as evidenced by what is happening in Somalia. Canada, America, and Mexico must also be fitted into their place. Be aware. Rev. 18:4

'Civil Unrest' Buzz Growing; Arizona Police Ready

Arizona police prepared as War College warns military must prep for unrest
IMF warns of economic riots


A new report by the U.S. Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks.
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” said the War College report.
International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned Wednesday of economy-related riots and unrest in various global markets if the financial crisis is not addressed and lower-income households are hurt by credit constraints and rising unemployment..
State and local police in Arizona say they have broad plans to deal with social unrest, including trouble resulting from economic distress. The security and police agencies declined to give specifics, but said they would employ existing and generalized emergency responses to civil unrest that arises for any reason.
