1 Cor. 16:13 'Stand fast in the faith'

"Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar." Psalm 120:5

As a Christian you have to live in the midst of an ungodly world, and it is of little use for you to cry "Woe is me." Jesus did not pray that you should be taken out of the world, and what He did not pray for you need not desire. Better far in the Lord's strength to meet the difficulty, and glorify Him in it. The enemy is ever on the watch to detect inconsistency in your conduct; be therefore very holy. Remember that the eyes of all are upon you, and that more is expected from you than from other men. Strive to give no occasion for blame. Let your goodness be the only fault they can discover in you. Like Daniel, compel them to say of you, "We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God."

Seek to be useful as well as consistent. Perhaps you think, "If I were in a more favourable position I might serve the Lord's cause, but I cannot do any good where I am"; but the worse the people are among whom you live, the more need have they of your exertions; if they be crooked, the more necessity that you should set them straight; and if they be perverse, the more need have you to turn their proud hearts to the truth. Where should the physician be but where there are many sick? Where is honour to be won by the soldier but in the hottest fire of the battle?

And when weary of the strife and sin that meets you on every hand, consider that all the saints have endured the same trial. They were not carried on beds of down to heaven, and you must not expect to travel more easily than they. They had to hazard their lives unto the death in the high places of the field, and you will not be crowned till you also have endured hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Therefore, "stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong."


Global Apostasy Kicking Into High Gear

23,000 Baptist Teens to Donate Millions in Free Labor: source

"Young Southern Baptists are kicking off a major outreach initiative Friday that will affect a total of 80 U.S. cities and offer some $16.4 million in free labor to local residents over the next few months."
"The more than 23,000 students – ranging from teen-age to college-age – participating in the 2008 World Changers project will install new roofs, repair drywalls, paint, and landscape for sub-standard homes in poor neighborhoods across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico."
"Indianapolis will be the first of 96 cities to host the World Changers project."
"Some of the major cities where projects will carried out include Dallas, Salt Lake City, St. Louis, Memphis, Tampa, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Savannah, Charleston, and Tallahassee."
re: free labor to "change the world"; 96 cities
Beside the fact that the church has never been called to change the world, is completely incapable of changing the world, that the world will never be changed by anybody except and until the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ physically returns to this earth; which he created; for He only is able to rule and reign in righteousness; and he only has the 'right' to do so; besides all that, here is a perfect example of the deception that Christians are being 'driven' into by Rick Warren et. al, i.e. that of being made into volunteer community-service workers for the global management system of the coming 'false messiah'. see: stone-builders-rejected
Note: The timing for this "world changers project" seems to be coordinated perfectly with this week's launching of Warren's global 'christian-merging' agenda, the so-called Peace Coalition. In addition, the *newly 'religious' Tony Blair also launched his brand new "Faith Foundation" just today (5/31/08), right on cue, with the stated goals of promoting inter-religion cooperation for global harmony, etc., so to speak. Coincidence is out of the question, the evidence of collusion on a massive scale is painfully obvious...and you ain't seen nothing yet. Rev. 18:4

Colorado "transgender nondiscrimination" bill: the floodgates are opening
Guv strikes state's gender-specific restrooms: wnd
'Who would have believed it would be legal for men to enter women's locker rooms?'
May 29, 2008

"With today's signature on SB200, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, a Democrat, has struck gender-specific restrooms and locker rooms statewide, giving woman and girls reason to fear being confronted by predators, cross-dressers "or even a homosexual or heterosexual male," according to a critic."

"The state's new "transgender nondiscrimination" bill makes it illegal to deny a person access to public accommodations including restrooms and locker rooms based on gender identity or the "perception" of gender identity."

""Henceforth, every woman and little girl will have to fear that a predator, bisexual, cross-dresser or even a homosexual or heterosexual male might walk in and relieve himself in their presence. The legislation lists every conceivable type of organization to which this law applies, including restaurants, bathhouses, massage parlors, mortuaries, theaters and ‘public facilities of any kind.’ Those who would attempt to protect females from this intrusion are subject to a fine of up to $5,000 and up to one year behind bars," he continued."

According to the bill, business owners and managers of restaurants, gyms, barber shops, massage parlors, etc., and managers of "public [facilities] of any kind whether indoor or outdoor" cannot deny a person employment or access to a facility based on gender identity or that "perception."

" ... Lest we think that this is just the 'bathroom bill,' I'd like us also to realize that this really is about Christian businesspeople being able to practice their faith through their profession," Rep. Amy Stephens said, citing an Albuquerque photographer who refused to photograph a same sex couple's ceremony, was brought before the New Mexico Civil Rights Commission, found guilty and fined $6,000.

"....the Colorado bill now will be "coming to every state in the country.""

re: a fine of up to $5,000 and up to one year behind bars

We are living now in a world that has truly gone insane..losing any sense of rational thought, having no moral compass whatsoever. And...you are being threatened with large fines and jail time if you want to challenge the new status quo. And there is the real agenda, legal protection in every sphere, starting in the bathrooms, as Rep. Amy Stevens points out.

Bizzaro world 2008 where everything is upside backwards and downside up.

And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. Isaiah 59:14-15

Canamerexico Driver's License Begins

New Enhanced Drivers Licenses Allow Travel Throughout North America: buffalonews
May 27, 2008

'ALBANY — New York State motorists this summer will be able to obtain new, higher-security driver’s licenses, enabling them to travel to and from Canada and other Western Hemisphere destinations without the need for a passport.'

"New York’s program for enhanced driver’s licenses, which will cost an additional $30 fee and be available only to U. S. citizens, was given final approval by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security after seven months of discussions between state and federal officials.'

re: inter-continent license

Welcome to the western region of the 'coming-out-of-the-closet' one-world government. The "U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security', apparently sovereign over all others nowadays, has granted permission to create a new inter-continent western hemisphere driver's license, starting with the state of NY. With your new "higher security" NAU (North American Union) 'enhanced' continental license you will be able to travel throughout Canamerexico.
You may not be able to afford to travel...that's another issue altogether. But you will have a western hemisphere ID just the same!

With all this collaboration between the western regional 'homelands' it looks like the monetary systems will have to be merged next, just like the South American 'homelands' are now planning to do.

Calif.: Same-sex marriages OK beginning June 17: source
"The guidelines from Janet McKee, chief of California's office of vital records, to the state's 58 county clerks also contained copies of new marriage forms that include lines for "Party A" and "Party B" instead of bride and groom. The gender-neutral nomenclature was developed in consultation with county clerks, according to the letter."

Under the Supreme Court's regular rules of procedure, justices have until the end of the day June 16 to rule on the stay request, according to the memo sent by e-mail to county clerks. Lawyers involved in the marriage case have said previously the court could grant itself an extra 60 days to consider the stay.

"To deny this fundamental constitutional right to same-sex couples based on speculation about what might happen in November would not merely be inappropriate, it would be inhumane," Herrera's filing said.
Homosexual faux-marriage is now a "fundamental right"?

"...there is no easy answer to the global oil problem without a comprehensive international strategy."

Homosexual Agenda Overriding Religious Beliefs?

follow up on: sodom-and-california

Calif. court to consider gay rights case:
May 27, 2008
"SAN FRANCISCO, May 27 (UPI) -- The California Supreme Court, just weeks after legalizing gay marriage, will hear another potential landmark case Wednesday involving same-sex civil rights.The court's seven justices will hear a case involving fertility physicians accused of discriminating against a lesbian couple by citing religious beliefs when they declined to perform artificial insemination, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday."

"In the pending case, gay rights advocates say the state civil rights law mandating equal treatment should override the doctors' constitutional rights to religious freedom, he said."

"Religious liberty protects your right to believe as you wish, but not act in whatever manner a person might wish to based on those religious beliefs," said Benitez's attorney, Jennifer Pizer."
fyi: While the ink has barely dried on the last Ca. Supreme court "landmark decision", the next phase of the homosexual agenda is already stepping up into the batter's box. The timing is rather amazing. It's almost seems like a conspiracy or something...
Now, as seen in this next case, the homosexual agenda wants to take away the right to act "in whatever manner a person might wish", or more specifically, according to religious convictions. This would have have incredibly far reaching implications. It's getting serious folks.
(* re: Homosexual nuptials. June 14...keep an eye on this date. This will be exactly 30 days since the last 'landmark' decision and is the date the floodgates will open unless the Ca. Supreme Court issues the petitioned-for delay to the starting of the sodomite faux-marriages.

I.E.D.'s DHS and FBI

DHS: States must develop I.E.D. plan

May 26. 2008
States Chafing at U.S. Focus on Terrorism: the-dispatch

"Juliette N. Kayyem, the Massachusetts homeland security adviser, was in her office in early February when an aide brought her startling news. To qualify for its full allotment of federal money, Massachusetts had to come up with a plan to protect the state from an almost unheard-of threat: improvised explosive devices, known as I.E.D.’s."

"“I.E.D.’s? As in Iraq I.E.D.’s?” Ms. Kayyem said in an interview, recalling her response. No one had ever suggested homemade roadside bombs might begin exploding on the highways of Massachusetts."

"In the case of this year’s focus on improvised explosives, the main killer of American troops in Iraq, Homeland Security officials say the attention to the domestic threat stems from a classified strategy that President Bush approved last year that is designed to help the country to deter and defeat I.E.D.’s before terrorists can detonate them here."

'The administration is completing a plan to assign specific training, prevention and response duties to several federal agencies, including the F.B.I. and Homeland Security, the officials said.

“I.E.D. detection, protection, and prevention is an important issue, and we all need to be looking at that,” Matthew Bettenhausen, California’s homeland security director, said in a telephone interview.

"Leesa Berens Morrison, Arizona’s homeland security director, said the new federal guidance “absolutely surprised us,” and said state officials were scrambling to comply."

'Maj. Gen. Tod M. Bunting, the homeland security director for Kansas, said Washington ran the risk of raising undue public alarm by prescribing such a large part of the grant to bomb prevention.'
re: "new federal guidance", 'Homeland' Security Directors, and "scrambling to comply"

Wonder if we can get this straight. A classified (secret) strategy approved by Bush to "detect and deter" the domestic threat of I.E.D.'s, which calls for a completed plan that would arrange for "specific training, prevention, and response duties to several federal agencies, including the FBI and DHS.

In other words, more inter-agency/inter-state planning and collaboration, the end result being the futherance of the just-around-the-corner monolithic police-state monster formerly known as the USA. Looks like the individual state 'homeland' security directors are calling the shots already. It's a new day people.
Would I.E.D.'s 'going off' be a provocation for war? Just wondering....

Global 'Purpose Driven' Delusion Officially Launched

update on: updated-purpose-driven-2.0-released

Rick Warren and 1,700 Leaders Launch the Peace Coalition at Purpose Driven Summit:

"LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Over 1,700 leading pastors, business and Christian institutional leaders from 39 countries and all 50 states gathered in Lake Forest, California, May 20-22, to create The PEACE Coalition, a new international alliance of churches, businesses, ministries, universities, and other institutions.

The coalition will cooperate in a global mission strategy called the P.E.A.C.E. Plan, which is a massive, long range effort to mobilize one billion Christians in local churches around the world to copy Jesus’ model of ministry. (so-called Jesus model of ministry? see: incarnational)

"P.E.A.C.E. is an acronym for Promote reconciliation; Equip servant leaders; Assist the poor; Care for the sick; and Educate the next generation.'

"Using technology that was previously unavailable for collaboration in global mission is one of the factors that are allowing us to create this new P.E.A.C.E. Coalition," added Nelson Searcy, pastor of The Journey Church in Manhattan, New York.

"Local churches can now work directly with each other through a decentralized network instead of being separated by hierarchical silos."

P.E.A.C.E. Coalition members will be able to access free software to coordinate their projects. Saddleback church invested $3 million in the initial development of six modules: A member mobilization module, a project management module, an e-learning training module, a world missions database module (awarded best Christian software in 2007), a PEACE Coalition social network, and a private social network for pastors
Recommend to read the original post 'updated P.D. 2.0' linked above.

Purpose Driven Project officially underway

re: Promote reconciliation; Equip servant leaders; Assist the poor; Care for the sick; and Educate the next generation.
The globalist agenda to direct and control all aspects of life on the planet is the true design behind the development of this ambitious world-wide 'social-works' network. For successful global management, an efficient network of trained and motivated humanitarian workers that will function efficiently within the 'sustainable-community' based management system known as 'Agenda 21' is absolutely essential. Each individual community will need to be a smooth running part of the whole. To accomplish this, community leaders will need to be equipped, educated and trained, the poor will need assistance, and the sick cared for.
Warren and his globalist pals have decided that one billion Christians are the perfect solution for the job. By creating an "international alliance of churches, businesses, universities, ministries, and other institutions", and plugging everybody into the software system, the global social-works agency can now begin to be built. Voila! A billion volunteer social workers networked with businesses and educational institutions to manage the planet earth with.
This official launching of the program is very significant as it represents a big step forward in the globalist agenda. Unfortunately the entire scheme opposes the revealed truth of the Word of God and will never come to fruition. The 'purpose-driven' version of Christianity is a 'perversion' of the truth, solely designed for this attempt to shoehorn the Christian faith into the globalist framework, and to merge it into the global spirituality of the coming kingdom of the Antichrist.
It is vitally important for Christians to understand the truth as revealed in God's word regarding the final apostatising of Christianity vs. the false hope and lie of 'Dominionism', which promises a man-built Christian 'Kingdom of God' on the earth. Men will build no kingdom of God on earth. The Antichrist will build a kingdom though, in an attempt to present himself as God and to prevent the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, setting up the tremendous conflict detailed in the book of Revelation. see: whose-kingdom (It is to be noted that many 'spins' and novel variations on the general "Kingdom" theme are now being forwarded which all basically come to the same conclusion).
Disregarding the many false interpretations that the Purpose-Driven/Dominionist/emerging church use to support their involvement with the globalist agenda, the Word of God is explicit in warning against any of this man-can-save-himself-and-the-planet deluded thinking. Man is forever hapless and hopeless, and apart from the grace of God is capable of nothing but sin and rebellion. The failure of this coming world government will prove this. Man will be shown to be utterly bankrupt, shown to have been absolutely deceived by the Devil incarnate himself, aka Antichrist, and will be found fallen before him in worship (Rev. 13:3-4). It is at that point that the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will return, and after putting down the rebellion, will then and only then set up His own Kingdom (Rev. 19:15)....with no help from men (Rev. 19:11-21).
Anybody involved with this...come out of this 'on-purpose' driven delusion before it's too late!

Local Hawaii News - Big Brother Coming For Boaters

Kaneohe Bay sandbar will be patrolled: honoluluadvertiser
( Memorial day weekend 5/24-26/08)
Sandbar first stop for public safety effort
"KANE'OHE — The state will launch an unprecedented pilot project on Kane'ohe Bay this holiday weekend to crack down on rowdy behavior, drunken driving of watercraft and other problems that threaten public safety and led to a brawl at a popular sandbar last year."

'The effort will be anchored by approximately two dozen officers and staff members with the state Department of Land and Natural Resources along with a Coast Guard cutter and two smaller boats."

"DLNR will help with launching, boater education and checking equipment but will also cite violators and arrest people if necessary, said Ed Underwood, administrator for the Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation."

"For now, the effort is planned only on major holiday weekends at Kane'ohe Bay, including the Fourth of July and Labor Day."

"But the program is expected to expand across the state, Underwood said."

Ward said that although the department has worked with the Coast Guard before, this is the first time a concerted effort of this size has been conducted.

""DLNR's effort is also a wake-up call to boaters to make sure their vessels are seaworthy and safe for their passengers," Ward said."
re: first time concerted effort...Coast guard partnering with the State of Hawaii

Although not identified as such, this state of Hawaii "unprecedented pilot project" fits the exact description of the gestapo Department of 'Homeland' Security's brand new program, the "Small Vessel Security Strategy ". This new federal program comes with numerous new layers of bureaucracy, as well as suggesting the development of electronic tracking requirements for recreational boaters. (click SVSS link above)

It's 'Big Brother' on the water, and it's up and running here on the island of Oahu as of this weekend, and will be expanding statewide according to Ed Underwood, the administrator for the Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation. As the subtitle says, the Kaneohe sandbar is just the "first stop".

Hawaiian recreational boaters, looks like the 'phasing in' of the SVSS has begun in the islands....you are about to be controlled, monitored, regulated, and tracked. Bye bye freedoms...

"A petition has been submitted to the California Supreme Court asking the justices there to delay the effective date of their same-sex marriage opinion until voters have their say on the issue."
"ADF attorneys say the court should avoid "obvious legal problems" that could develop when California voters vote in November on a state constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

"The possibility of significant and unnecessary legal and social problems can be avoided by waiting to see what the California people desire when it comes to the meaning of marriage," he said

"We hope that the court will allow the California people to have their say on the amendment without enduring the potential problems associated with implementing the court’s decision before then."
re: implementing the court's decision..or postponing until after a voter referendum on a constitutional amendment to overturn the court's decision?

And Now, the South American Union

South America nations found union: bbc.co.uk

The leaders of 12 South American nations have formed a regional body aimed at boosting economic and political integration in the region.

At a summit in Brazil, they signed a treaty which created the Union of South American Nations (Unasur).

Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said the move showed that South America was becoming a "global player".

The Unasur members are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, ---Uruguay and Venezuela.

re: "economic and political integration"

"Economic and political integration" is just another way to describe regionally-managed sections of a single world government. This announcement must be seen as a huge development, another giant step in the overall scheme....which U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling the "new dawn" or the new global covenant.

The South American Union joins the European Union, the soon to be Mediterranean Union, the secretive North American Union (Canamerexico), and Africom, in the Agenda 21 regionalized governing of the globe.

Amidst the multitude of distractions, the 666 'beast' continues steadfastly, quietly devouring all...

"Thus he said, The fourth beast shall....devour the whole earth.." (Dan. 7:23)

The "falling away" (2 Thes. 2:3)

...is here. Can you see it?
"It approaches us secretly, quietly, insidiously, plausibly, and in such a way as to disarm our suspicion, and throw us off our guard."
False doctrine does not meet us face to face, and proclaim that it is false. It does not blow a trumpet before it, and endeavor openly to turn us away from the truth as it is in Jesus. It does not come before us in broad day, and summon us to surrender. It approaches us secretly, quietly, insidiously, plausibly, and in such a way as to disarm our suspicion, and throw us off our guard. It is the wolf in sheep’s clothing, and Satan in the garb of an angel of light–who have always proved the most dangerous foes of the church of Christ.
Let us be on our guard against the “insidiousness” of false doctrine. Like the fruit of which Eve and Adam ate–at first sight it looks pleasant and good, and a thing to be desired. “Poison” is not written upon it, and so people are not afraid. Like counterfeit coin, it is not stamped “bad.” It passes for the real thing, because of the very likeness it bears to the truth.
Let us be on our guard against the “very small beginnings” of false doctrine. Every heresy began at one time, with some little departure from the truth. There is only “a little seed of error” needed to create “a great tree of heresy!” It is the little leaven, which infiltrated the whole lump. It is the little flaw in one link of the chain cable, which wrecks the gallant ship, and drowns the crew. It is the omission or addition of one little item in the doctor’s prescription, which spoils the whole medicine, and turns it into poison!
Let us never allow a little false doctrine to ruin us, by thinking it is “but a little one,” and can do us no harm.
There are three things which we never ought to trifle with:
a little poison,
a little sin,
and a little false doctrine.
Let us read the Bible regularly, daily, and with fervent prayer. Let us receive nothing, believe nothing, follow nothing–which is not in the Bible. Let our rule of faith, our touchstone of all teaching–be the written Word of God.
“To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)
The prophesied apostasy, or falling away (Greek/apostasia) of the many from a true biblical faith (2 Thes. 2:3), a sign that will enable us to discern the end of the "age of grace", is undeniably raging throughout the Christian church worldwide, and as foretold relatively few are discerning enough to identify it.
The end of the "age of grace" speaks of the final corrupted condition in which, we are told, the church would be found at the end of the allotted gospel preaching time in God's economy, having been assulted and attacked by the enemies of God for over 2000 years.
The Lord Jesus Christ will by this time have completed all his intention though, calling and forming his bride from out of the world, while the corrupted remnants will then be turned over to the lusts of their hearts. (see Rev. 3:14-17). The next thing to come, following the "age of grace" in Almighty God's plan for the ages, will be the time of the Great Tribulation...judgment on the Christ rejecting World and the Christ rejecting Jewish people.....the "grace period" will be over!
Each must guard themselves, so as to not also fall away with the many (Matt. 7:21-23) ...[scripture search on right]

Inouye calling for military draft?

Do You Feel a Draft?: military.com

"In an exchange sure to send ripples of anxiety through the all-volunteer military, the Senate's senior defense spending member asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen if it is time to "consider reinstituting the draft."

"Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), chairman of the Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee, asked Gates and Mullen the question he said no one wants to ask: "Is the cost of maintaining an all-volunteer force becoming unsustainable and, secondly, do we need to consider reinstituting the draft."

"This marks the first time a senior member of Congress has seriously discussed reinstituting the draft in almost two years. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, called for reinstituting the draft in November 2006."
Is it time?
Neither Gates or Mullen answered the question directly. This is how the dialectic for public consumption begins. Open ended discussion which slowly changes perception, but the end goal is always predetermined. In this case, proceeding with the global conquest e.g. Iran will mean more countries to occupy, which means more troops will be needed as occupiers, which means a draft is needed..it's that simple.

"Warren will go public with the P.E.A.C.E. coalition – a network of churches, business, and NGOs – on Thursday --when the conference concludes."
re: merging the apostate Christian church into the anti-christ global system through the use of a "network of churches, business, NGO's" (non-governmental organizations i.e. charities)

Another conference, invitation-only for program promoters apparently, and more purpose-driven-dribble heretical chit-chat. Another conference which is really nothing more than a cover to give some outward appearance of legitimacy while disguising the true intent. The true original intent of Rick Warren and his globalist handlers i.e Peter Drucker, Bob Buford, and others, has not changed whatsoever. Still now, as originally introduced, the so-called "purpose-driven" church model is simply a deceptive mechanism designed to merge the many varied denominations of Christendom into the quickly developing global management system.

You see, it's very difficult to manage an entire world and with that in mind it is easily seen how those difficulties are compounded if you factor in the hundreds of autonomous religious organizations that are all acting independently of any outside control. To overcome this the would-be 'world managers' plan is to create networks with the needed control systems built in. If you can build the network, or "coalition" as Warren would call it, you will then have basically a single entity to manage, rather than numerous individual organizations all with separate goals.
By uniting the churches with businesses and ngo's the church would be melded together with them into the structure of the now rising 'Tower of Babel'. The designated "purpose" for church members in this plan, simply put, is to be the world's volunteer social workers. This is the real "purpose" driving the Rick Warren agenda, and adding to the equation Warren's completely aberrant purpose driven doctrine, there is nothing at all "Christian" about the movement in any stretch of the imagination. It is opposed to true biblical faith on every point.
Note also the introduction of what's being called the P.E.A.C.E 2.0 computerized software program to help facilitate..i.e build the network. This new aspect of purpose driven shows an advancement toward the goal and will allow standardization, tracking, measurable results, etc., all of which are necessary for successful management.
There is only one possible solution...come out of this apostasy today....

NWO: Locked and Loaded

Olmert proposes naval blockade on Iran: eircom.net
Wed, 21 May 2008

"JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert proposed in talks with a U.S. congressional leader that a naval blockade be imposed on Iran...."

"The Haaretz daily quoted Olmert as telling Nancy Pelosi that "the present economic sanctions have exhausted themselves" and the international community needed to take more drastic steps...."

"I'm not going to get into specifics of how we may or may not increase that pressure militarily," Morrell said. "But as we've said from the outset of this problem, all military options remain on the table."

"Olmert also said, according to the report, that international restrictions should be placed on Iranian aircraft, business executives and senior officials."
re: calling for "drastic steps"

Thought to ponder: Before the 'New World Order' can be established, the 'Old World Order' must be destroyed. Only then can the 'Phoenix' rise from the ashes....

Only thing needed now is the 'trigger'. In the real world this is the hard reality surrounding these events. Quite different from the perception-twisting fantasy of CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc. that the majority of people absorb daily without questioning. That 'trigger' is cocked and can literally go off at any time...fast forwarding the entire 666 global agenda. These are truly 'drastic' times.

compare with this post and comment: Kissinger's declaration that the world has now come to the turning point.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

American Airlines leading the charge for the global management system takedown of the Air Travel Industry
American to cut flights, charge for baggage: newsday
May 21, 2008

"Citing the weak economy and fuel costs that have increased by billions of dollars in the last few years, American Airlines said Wednesday it will charge $15 for passengers' first checked bag, reduce its capacity by at least 11 percent, and layoff off thousands of employees."

"A major consumer group and an airline analyst said other carriers may follow American's lead, and airplanes will be even more crowded, particularly during this summer's peak travel season."

"United Airlines said it was "seriously studying" American's baggage charge -- which was seen as unprecedented for a major U.S. carrier.

Robert W. Mann Jr., an independent airline analyst and consultant in Port Washington, said he believes American will have to reduce capacity further as fuel costs continue to rise.

"But I think this is the new reality as airlines seek to find revenue sources in whatever service they provide to passengers," Stempler said.
re: new reality of the "reshaped" airline industry (click 'update' link above for more details)

This announcement of the "new reality" of air travel should be taken seriously. Higher charges, no baggage, cutting flights, layoffs, and more to come. It's just beginning, so hold on to your hats because it's going to be a whirlwind. The turning point has come, according to Henry Kissinger. The 666 global system is about to be jump started. In this global system all global citizens are to be compliant and abide quietly in their "sustainable communities". Everything you can possibly need is to be found within your own community in your own little section of the 'homeland'... this is why these "human habitations" (UN speak) are referred to as 'sustainable'. You won't need to go anywhere..it will all be there sustaining everyone. This also explains the absurd artificially inflated no-end-in-sight rising gas prices.
So don't worry about air travel...you're not going anywhere. Don't believe it? Watch and see...
Sustainable developement go-fers...are you catching on yet?

connect the dots, see the 'big' picture:
permission to travel;
intl. travel registration;
then there were three, then there were.. ;


The cross: the ONLY WAY out of this world alive...

"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." Rom. 6:6
"We must do something about the cross, and one of two things only we can do---flee it or die upon it. And if we should be so foolhardy as to flee we shall by that act put away the faith of our fathers and make of Christianity something other than it is. Then we shall have left only the empty language of salvation; the power will depart with our departure from the true cross."
The Cross is a Radical Thing
The cross of Christ is the most revolutionary thing ever to appear among men. The cross of old Roman times knew no compromise; it never made concessions. It won all its arguments by killing its opponent and silencing him for good. It spared not Christ, but slew Him the same as the rest. He was alive when they hung Him on that cross and completely dead when they took Him down six hours later. That was the cross the first time it appeared in Christian history.
After Christ was risen from the dead the apostles went out to preach His message, and what they preached was the cross. And wherever they went into the wide world they carried the cross, and the same revolutionary power went with them.
The radical message of the cross transformed Saul of Tarsus and changed him from a persecutor of Christians to a tender believer and an apostle of the faith. Its power changed bad men into good ones. It shook off the long bondage of paganism and altered completely the whole moral and mental outlook of the Western world.
All this it did and continued to do as long as it was permitted to remain what it had been originally, a cross. Its power departed when it was changed from a thing of death to a thing of beauty. When men made of it a symbol, hung it around their necks as an ornament or made its outline before their faces as a magic sign to ward off evil, then it became at best a weak emblem, at worst a positive fetish. As such it is revered today by millions who know absolutely nothing about its power.
The cross effects its ends by destroying one established pattern, the victim's, and creating another pattern, its own. Thus it always has its way. It wins by defeating its opponent and imposing its will upon him. It always dominates. It never compromises, never dickers nor confers, never surrenders a point for the sake of peace. It cares not for peace; it cares only to end its opposition as fast as possible.
With perfect knowledge of all this Christ said, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." So the cross not only brings Christ's life to an end, it ends also the first life, the old life, of every one of His true followers. It destroys the old pattern, the Adam pattern, in the believer's life, and brings it to an end. Then the God who raised Christ from the dead raises the believer and a new life begins.
This, and nothing less, is true Christianity, though we cannot but recognize the sharp divergence of this conception from that held by the rank and file of evangelicals today. But we dare not qualify our position. The cross stands high above the opinions of men and to that cross all opinions must come at last for judgment. A shallow and worldly leadership would modify the cross to please the entertainment-mad saintlings who will have their fun even within the very sanctuary; but to do so is to court spiritual disaster and risk the anger of the Lamb turned Lion.
We must do something about the cross, and one of two things only we can do---flee it or die upon it. And if we should be so foolhardy as to flee we shall by that act put away the faith of our fathers and make of Christianity something other than it is. Then we shall have left only the empty language of salvation; the power will depart with our departure from the true cross.
If we are wise we will do what Jesus did: endure the cross and despise its shame for the joy that is set before us. To do this is to submit the whole pattern of our lives to be destroyed and built again in the power of an endless life. And we shall find that it is more than poetry, more than sweet hymnody and elevated feeling. The cross will cut into our lives where it hurts worst, sparing neither us nor our carefully cultivated reputations. It will defeat us and bring our selfish lives to an end. Only then can we rise in fulness of life to establish a pattern of living wholly new and free and full of good works.
The changed attitude toward the cross that we see in modern orthodoxy proves not that God has changed, nor that Christ has eased up on His demand that we carry the cross; it means rather that current Christianity has moved away from the standards of the New Testament. So far have we moved indeed that it may take nothing short of a new reformation to restore the cross to its right place in the theology and life of the Church.

"ye shall be as gods"...Not!

fyi: A few excerpts from an 'expert' opininon piece, showing clearly the mindset behind the dangerous genetic-manipulation experimentation currently underway across the globe today. It will mean the end of human beings, according to this Professor of Bioethics.

Who’s afraid of a synthetic human?

If we can enhance our species - make it live longer and resist disease - we should do it

by John Harris, Professor of Bioethics at the University of Manchester and author of Enhancing Evolution (Princeton University, 2007)

"In the future there will be no more human beings. This is not something we should worry about."

"Darwinian evolution has taken millions of years to create human beings; the next phase of evolution, a phase I call “enhancement evolution”, could occur before the end of the century. The result may be the emergence of a new species that will initially live alongside us and eventually may entirely replace humankind."

"Now is the time to try to answer this question, because many recent discoveries are beginning to make the prospect of radical human enhancement a reality."

"This is heady stuff, and if it works may give us unprecedented powers."

"Some of these possibilities are so radical that the creatures benefiting from them would no longer be “human”, in the way we think of it. The end of humanity then is not in itself a concern; making sure that those who replace us are better than we are is a huge and timely concern."

re: "give us unprecendented powers"


There's the bait. The same bait was offered to Eve by the serpent in the garden thousands of years ago.."ye shall be as gods.." (Gen. 3:5). Now the same serpent has once again dangled the same baited hook in front of these godless humanists and they have bit down hard on it, just as did the first man Adam so long ago.

Problem for them, and it's a big problem, is that that serpent..."is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44) His goal is to possess them and to be worshiped by them; and they will do it too! (Rev. 13:4)
The 'set up' is working...
