Heroes For Christ or "Chocalate Soldiers" by CT Studd

Forward Ever, Backward Never!" Some wish to live within the sound of Church or Chapel bell; I want to run a Rescue Shop within a yard of hell."— C.T. Studd.

As a soldier of the Cross, C.T. is remembered for "his courage in any emergency, his determination never to sound the retreat, his conviction that he was in God's will, his faith that God would see him through, his contempt of the arm of the flesh, and his willingness to risk all for Christ." bio
The Chocolate Soldier
Heroism - The Lost Chord of Christianity! by C. T. Studd (1860-1931)

Heroism is the lost chord; the missing note of present day Christianity! Every true soldier is a hero! A SOLDIER WITHOUT HEROISM IS A CHOCOLATE SOLDIER! Who has not been stirred to scorn and mirth at the very thought of a Chocolate Soldier? In peace true soldiers are captive lions, fretting in their cages. War gives them their liberty and sends them, like boys bounding out of school, to obtain their heart's desire or perish in the attempt. Battle is the soldier's vital breath! Peace turns him into a stooping asthmatic. War makes him a whole man again, and gives him the heart, strength, and vigor of a hero.
EVERY TRUE CHRISTIAN IS A SOLDIER of Christ - a hero "par excellence"! Braver than the bravest - scorning the soft seductions of peace and her oft-repeated warnings against hardship, disease, danger, and death, whom he counts among his bosom friends.
THE OTHERWISE CHRISTIAN IS A CHOCOLATE CHRISTIAN! Dissolving in water and melting at the smell of fire. "Sweeties" they are! Bonbons, lollipops! Living their lives on a glass dish or in a cardboard box, each clad in his soft clothing, a little frilled white paper to preserve his dear little delicate constitution.
Here are some PORTRAITS OF CHOCOLATE SOLDIERS taken by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. "He said, 'I go, sir' and went not"; he said he would go to the heathen, but stuck fast to Christendom instead. They say and do not. They tell others to go, and yet do not go themselves. "Never," said General Gordon to a corporal (as he himself jumped upon the parapet [earthen or stone embankment protecting soldiers] of a trench, before Sebastopol, to fix a gabion which the corporal had ordered a private to fix, and wouldn't fix himself). "Never tell another man to do what you are afraid to do yourself."
To the Chocolate Soldier the very thought of war brings a violent attack of ague (feverish chills), while the call to battle always finds him with the palsy. "I really cannot move," he says. "I only wish I could, but I can sing, and here are some of my favorite lines:

"I must be carried to the skies
On a flowery bed of ease,
Let others fight to win the prize,
Or sail thro' bloody seas.
Mark time, Christian heroes,
Never go to war;
Stop and mind the babies
Playing on the floor.
Wash and dress and feed them
Forty times a week.
Till they're roly poly
Puddings so to speak.

Round and round the nursery
Let us ambulate
Sugar and spice
and all that's nice
Must be on our slate.
"Thank the good Lord," said a very fragile, white-haired lady, "God never meant me to be a jellyfish!" She wasn't! GOD NEVER WAS A CHOCOLATE MANUFACTURER, AND NEVER WILL BE. God's men are always heroes. In Scripture you can trace their giant foot-tracks down the sands of time.

A timeless message from the past from one who has 'walked the walk'. A 'keeper', it would be well worth printing out and taking the time to carefully read and meditate upon this challenging exhortation, as well as going to the 'bio' link and learning a little bit about the life of the author, C.T. Studd.

Tracking devices to cut car insurance rates
For the first time, a New Jersey auto insurance company wants to equip cars with high-tech devices that constantly track motorists' driving habits to determine how much they should pay.

Starting Aug. 8, Progressive Corp. will offer discounts to its 127,000 Garden State drivers if they install in their cars wireless devices that tell the insurer how many miles they drive, what time they're out on the road, and how often and how fast they accelerate and hit the brakes.

The pocket-sized sensors, with the wireless transmitting capability of cell phones, are plugged into onboard diagnostic ports in cars dating back to 1996 models. Each day, they signal to Progressive computers about miles driven, when drivers are on the road and how they brake or accelerate. see:

The order directs the attorney general to develop guidelines to allow agencies access to information held by other agencies. That could potentially include the sharing of sensitive information about Americans.

It was carried on in secret in the midst of pitched national debate about the appropriate balance between civil liberties and security, spurred by the president's warrantless wiretapping program.

Global Conquest On Schedule

update on: Pressing The Zionist Agenda
"American taxpayer dollars are being used, with the permission of Congress, to fund activities that result in Iranians being killed and wounded, and Iranian property destroyed."
"A major culprit in this entire sordid affair is the mainstream media. Displaying an almost uncanny inability to connect the dots, the editors who run America’s largest newspapers, and the producers who put together America’s biggest television news programs, have collectively facilitated the most simplistic, inane and factually unfounded story lines coming out of the Bush White House."
"One day, in the not-so-distant future, Americans will awake to the reality that American military forces are engaged in a shooting war with Iran. Many will scratch their heads and wonder, “How did that happen?” The answer is simple: We all let it happen. We are at war with Iran right now. We just don’t have the moral courage to admit it."
related article: The New York Times: Making Nuclear Extermination Respectable

"On July 18, 2008 The New York Times published an article by Israeli-Jewish historian, Professor Benny Morris, advocating an Israeli nuclear-genocidal attack on Iran with the likelihood of killing 70 million Iranians."

'What does the publication by the New York Times of an article, which calls for the nuclear incineration of 70 million Iranians and the contamination of the better part of a billion people in the Middle East, Asia and Europe, tell us about US politics and culture?'

"Apart from a handful of writers (Gentile and Jewish) publishing in marginal web sites, there was no political or moral condemnation from the entire literary, political and journalistic world of this affront to our humanity."

"The question of Zionist power in America is not merely a question of a ‘lobby’ influencing Congressional and White House decisions concerning foreign aid to Israel . What is at stake today are the related questions of the advocacy of a nuclear war in which 70 million Iranians face extermination and the complicity of the US mass media in providing a platform, nay a certain political respectability for mass murder and global contamination."
re: major culprit...msm

The rhetoric to advance Zionist global conquest continues unrelenting and the bottom line is that the agenda will not be hindered. Their pseudo 'kingdom of Zion' will ultimately become a reality, and a counterfeit 'king', the biblical personage of the Antichrist himself, will one day ascend to the throne of it. This is foretold in the scripture of truth. This false kingdom will not stand though, as it is in defiance of Almighty God. see: stone-builders-rejected .

These events dramatically unfolding on the world's stage are a clear indication that the final phases are about to play out. Understanding this, it is imperative to turn away from psycho-manipulation of the "main-stream-media" (msm). Their NWO job description is to provide 'perception management', and they are paid well to do it. Twisting truth to create the desired perception of current events is 'how they roll'. Nothing but illusions. Protect yourself and break away.

Nevertheless, the only thing remaining to be done to advance this next phase is to sufficiently prepare the masses to accept that the inevitable is in fact inevitable. That program is being accomplished through desensitization, the NYT article being a prime example. When, as the author of the first article suggests, the "shooting war" begins, most people will probably do no more than roll over with a yawn, flip through the channels, and put on another 'reality' TV show. If that statement is true it pinpoints a tragic irony; i.e. the contrived 'reality' of television fantasy has blinded the vast majority to the true reality of today's drastically changing world.

When the propaganda has been deemed successful enough, the 'beast' will go ahead with the next stage...and the ramifications of this next 'war' in the Persian Gulf will reach far and wide, ushering in the 'chaos' (ordo ab chao) needed to destroy the old order and to begin to establish the 'new order', as designed, on a large scale. (see: Unbelievable Iran 'Intel' [just below])

Watch and see...

Unbelievable Iran 'Intel'

article: U.S. Intel: Iran Plans Nuclear Strike on U.S.

"Iran has carried out missile tests for what could be a plan for a nuclear strike on the United States, the head of a national security panel has warned.

"In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee and in remarks to a private conference on missile defense over the weekend hosted by the Claremont Institute, Dr. William Graham warned that the U.S. intelligence community “doesn’t have a story” to explain the recent Iranian tests."
""If even a crude nuclear weapon were detonated anywhere between 40 kilometers to 400 kilometers above the earth, in a split-second it would generate an electro-magnetic pulse [EMP] that would cripple military and civilian communications, power, transportation, water, food, and other infrastructure," the report warned."

"The food distribution system also would grind to a halt as cold-storage warehouses stockpiling perishables went offline. Even warehouses equipped with backup diesel generators would fail, because “we wouldn’t be able to pump the fuel into the trucks and get the trucks to the warehouses,” Graham said."

"The United States “would quickly revert to an early 19th century type of country.” except that we would have 10 times as many people with ten times fewer resources, he said."

"“Most of the things we depend upon would be gone, and we would literally be depending on our own assets and those we could reach by walking to them,” Graham said.America would begin to resemble the 2002 TV series, “Jeremiah,” which depicts a world bereft of law, infrastructure, and memory."

"Asked just how many Americans would die if Iran were to launch the EMP attack it appears to be preparing, Graham gave a chilling reply."

"“You have to go back into the 1800s to look at the size of population” that could survive in a nation deprived of mechanized agriculture, transportation, power, water, and communication."

"“I’d have to say that 70 to 90 percent of the population would not be sustainable after this kind of attack,” he said."

"The modern electronic economy would shut down, and America would most likely revert to “an earlier economy based on barter,” the EMP commission’s report on Critical National Infrastructure concluded earlier this year."
re: "revert to an earlier economy based on barter"

It's getting serious...take note. Here is a clear example of the radical things being stated and placed on the record at the highest levels of government.

Church Security Solutions Launches Conference Series in Response to Increased Church Violence

SALEM, Or., July 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today more than ever the church is experiencing security threats that go beyond sexual predators, bookkeepers embezzling funds or car break-ins in the parking lot. This new dimension in security threats is exemplified by Sunday’s church shooting in Tennessee where two adults were killed and eight additional adults shot in the presence of their children.

Churches are open and accessible for their fellowship, yet those who have a sole intention of doing harm have easy access into the church. How do Churches prepare and plan for this violent phenomena?

CSS is offering regional one-day conferences across the nation. Over the next year CSS will visit major metropolitan areas with a conference dedicated to giving pastors, elders, Directors of Security and lay volunteers practical, hands-on tools that can be taken back to the church and applied to any size fellowship.

article: U.S. Headed for 'Heightened Alert' Stage

Anti-terror officials in the U.S. cite this summer and fall's lineup of two major political parties' conventions, November's general election and months of transition into a new presidential administration as cause for heightened awareness and action.

According to drafts of government memos described to ABC News, the period would run roughly from this August through July 2009.

During this time, homeland security analysts will be asked to redouble efforts to study terrorism leads. And a number of agencies will be asked to review emergency response plans to a variety of attacks, from improvised explosive devices ---(IEDs) to biological weapons

Oh! May Christians arise and take their place with Christ in the Heavenlies “far above principalities and powers.” Their right to the air they breathe and the water they drink is no more inalienable.

When God raised His Son from the dead and “set Him at His right hand in the Heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name that is named not only in this world but also in that which is to come, and put all things under His feet,” you, too, O Christian member of the body of Christ you, who believe in Him and who have been grafted into the Vine, you, of whom Jesus said: “I in them and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in One,” you, too, O Christian, were raised to sit at the right hand of God; all things have been placed under your feet. Will you not assert your right to freedom, and throw off the abominable yoke? Will you not remove, on the basis of the Calvary victory, every faculty, every power, every phase of your life whether of the spirit or of the soul, or of the body, from Satan’s blighting, stultifying, deadening, damning dominion, so that in the fullest possession of your faculties you may serve God in holy freedom and joy?

Impeachment-Hearing 'Hearing' Update

Update on: 'Impeachment' Drama in Washington
article: Impeachment a hot topic at 'not Impeachment' hearing

"Even though Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers insisted early on that the panel's evaluation of Bush's "imperial presidency" was decidedly not an impeachment hearing, the prospect was not far from many minds during the six hours of testimony."

"Kucinich formally introduced his articles of impeachment into the record of the committees proceedings -- although he did not utter the dreaded I-word, instead referring to the resolutions by their more legalistic titles "H. Res. 333, H. Res. 1258 and H. Res. 1345."

""Based on all of the things this administration has done, it is probably the most impeachable administration in the history of America,” said Hinchey, who appeared alongside Kucinich and North Carolina Reps. Walter Jones and Brad Miller."

"The committee's top Republican, Lamar Smith, mocked the proceedings, comparing them to last month's hearing featuring former White House spokesman Scott McClellan, who recently wrote a tell-all memoir about his time as Bush's spokesman."

""If last month it appeared we hosted a 'book of the month club,' this week it seems that we are hosting an anger management class," Smith said. "Nothing is going to come out of this hearing with regard to impeachment of the President. I know it, the media knows it, even the Speaker knows it. ... This hearing will not cause us to impeach the President; it will only serve to impeach our own credibility.""

Statement of Vincent Bugliosi, Author and Former Los Angeles County Prosecutor
House Judiciary Committee

(excerpts; full text linked above)

"Within the pages of my book, The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder, I present evidence that proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Bush administration officials took this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses, and therefore, under the law, they are guilty of murder for the deaths of over 4,000 young American soldiers who have died so far in Iraq fighting their war. And let's not forget the over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, children and babies who have died horrible, violent deaths because of their war."

"I am fully aware that the charge I have just made is an extremely serious one. But let me tell you that at this stage of my career I don't have time for fanciful reveries. I never in a million years would propose this prosecution if I didn't believe there was more than enough evidence to convict administration officials and that I was standing on strong, legal ground."

"Since we're talking about a matter of war and peace, with the safety and lives of millions of human beings hanging in the balance, and with Congress about to vote in one week on whether it should authorize President Bush to go to war, what could be worse than administration officials keeping this all-important conclusion from Congress and the American people?" video

re: "Congress about to vote in one week whether it should authorize...war"

fyi: see: Fast Tracking Iran War? This has the appearance of nothing more than a 'pageantry' of high stakes politics played out for public consumption, both sides role-playing. Charges of murder leveled only to be mockingly dismissed with an arrogant wave of the hand as an "anger management class" by top republican hireling. All this enacted drama and another global-domination war in the offing...no coverage by the msm...incredible to see how things really are. History is being made though, and for the relatively few who are even aware, you are front row spectators....of the demise of the nation dramatized.

Evil Babylon (this world system i.e. 'how things really are') will meet her maker though and all scores shall be settled in that 'day'. stay tuned

Rev. 18:4
60 So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even all these words that are written against Babylon....64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

It is one more freedom that is to be taken from us. Like the telescreens in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four that citizens could turn down but not off, the giant screens planned for 60 towns and cities will make watching television compulsory.

It is promised that besides showing news the screens will be used to promote culture; that they will be “digital canvases for local artists, film-makers and students”. But there is an ulterior motive, given away by Bob Belam, of Waltham Forest council. The screens, he said, would be used to “provide important information and will be able to get out messages about antisocial behaviour”.

Britain moves against illegal file sharing (taking down the net..step by step...threats to ban access)
British internet service providers are moving decisively against illegal file sharing with a traffic-policing program that will see copyright violators receive warning letters and potentially have their connections cut off.

Under the agreement announced Thursday between the British film and music industries, telecommunications regulator Ofcom and the country's six biggest ISPsBT, Virgin Media, BSkyB, Carphone Warehouse, Orange and Tiscali — people who illegally share copyrighted files over the internet will receive weekly letters warning them that they are being monitored.

Saddleback "Apologist" Threatens Web Host Company with Legal Action - IPOWER to Shut Down Purpose Driven Critic (however this one turns out, the goal is clear...silencing opposition to the one world religion-uniter's is mandatory for success of agenda. Increased effort to be expected.)

"This week, Lighthouse Trails learned that a Saddleback apologist contacted IPOWER, the web hosting company for Apprising Ministries (a Purpose Driven critic), threatening IPOWER with legal action. This resulted in IPOWER notifying Apprising Ministries that they would shut down the website if a request to remove certain material was not complied with in 48 hours (by Saturday night).'

"Because the long-term implications of IPOWER's actions could set a precedent with other hosting companies (a precedent that could ultimately affect many voices who stand for the truth and the Gospel), Lighthouse Trails considers this current action to be of a very serious nature."


'Beast' Swallowing Banks

update of: Economic Takeover...It's On
article: *2 more US banks fail

WASHINGTON: Federal regulators closed two small Western banks Friday, bringing to seven the number of U.S. banks that have failed this year.

"The banks, owned by First National Bank Holding Co. of Scottsdale, Arizona, will have their deposits and some assets transferred to Mutual of Omaha Bank, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., or FDIC."

"Bill Uffelman of the Nevada Bankers Association called the FDIC action "a reflection of the times for the banks."

"Sheila Bair, chairwoman of the FDIC, has said bank failures will increase as foreclosures rise and home sales slump."

re: "bank failures will increase"

quoted from "Economic Takeover...It's On" link above":

"here...is revealed the next phase of the strategy for the taking of complete control over the entire financial system..i.e. the merging of the "small and midsize banks"...with the big boys no doubt. Western-Region global governance. It's on people. see: blueprint-for-us-economic-takeover"

The 'consolidation' i.e. globalization of the financial system, just like the airline industry (airline nwo), is well underway (see "blueprint" above). It's not hard to understand....the day is coming "that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Rev. 13:17)
This is that. The Babel tower is rising before our eyes. It must be understood that these things cannot be averted, and while it may not be pleasent to have to face these facts, the only alternative to doing that is ignorance. It is written (Isaiah 65:6). Be aware.
But understand also, when that day of wrath fully arrives, all the wealth of this world that has been accumulated by the deluded would-be god-men and their 666 'king' will be of no use at all. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ now. His righteousness, not mine.

Shaking The World - Global Airline Predicted

Qantas boss predicts 'new world order'

"Quoting Geoff Dixon, the boss of Australia's Qantas, the media reports that not less than 100,000 aviation jobs will be axed in the near future, with the soaring fuel prices and the economic slump accelerating the consolidation of the airline industry on a massive scale. Pointing out to the present trends in the industry, Geoff Dixon has told that the current fuel crisis would bring about a 'seismic' shift that shall see the airline market dominated by a few huge and highly influential global airlines and niche carriers that have served individual markets in addition to sound flagship carriers from other countries.

"Stating what he calls as 'a new world order', Mr Dixon said, "Over time, consolidation will transform aviation. It will produce a few, very large and extremely efficient global airlines..."
re: 'seismic shift'

A one world 'consolidated airline system' for the one world global management system? Absolutely! And being openly announced now. A 'seismic shift' is the phrase being coined.
The plan is to shake this world until it collapses and destroy the foundation so as to erect the new order and enthrone their 'king' i.e. the little horn; that one who "shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but [when he does] he shall be broken without hand." (Dan. 8:25). Then these anti-Christ global conspirators will really know what a 'seismic shift' is all about.
Isaiah 2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

'Impeachment' Drama in Washington

July 25 '08 Kucinich's Statement At Judiciary Hearing

Bruce Fein’s Testimony Before the House Judiciary Committee

Vincent Bugliosi at Impeachment Hearings

fyi: Happening today in the House of Representatives. Note: (Bugliosi video) use of the word "impeachment" is not allowed, the gallery is threatened with removal for 'outbursts', chatting and yawning on congressional panel during testimony.

This should be watched closely as it unfolds because if the administration in power today is not held accountable to the charges, this so-called impeachment hearing-'hearing' would then appear to be nothing more than an 'insider' staged event to send a clear, unmistakable, and highly disturbing message to the homeland citizens, as the title to the linked article below suggests...the official establishing of an unaccountable 'above the law' Imperial...aka 'dictator'. It is to be noted that the Bush administration has refused to respond in any way to the 'charges'.

to be continued after five days at earliest apparently...stay tuned (don't hold your breath)

CA First State - Again

Gov. Schwarzenegger signs law banning trans fats in restaurants

"California is a leader in promoting health and nutrition, and I am pleased to continue that tradition by being the first state in the nation to phase out trans fats," Schwarzenegger said. "Consuming trans fat is linked to coronary heart disease, and today we are taking a strong step toward creating a healthier future for California.""

"But the legislation was vigorously opposed by the California Restaurant Assn., which argued that it would not substantially affect public health because people eat most of their meals at home."
re: strong step toward
Big Brother strikes again in the desensitizing of the population to the ongoing transition to authoritarian control. Make no mistake about it, the self styled global elite have absolutely every intention of 'absolutely' micromanaging the lives of all their subjects/slaves. A healthy slave is a productive slave. Much more to come.

Laodiceans and Hollywood

article: Southern Calif. Church Enters Movie-Making Business

"The plan, according to publicity coordinator Lisa Frost, is to have the movie released nationally."

"Written by New Song Youth Pastor Jim Britts and Executive Pastor Steve Foster, "How to Save a Life" deals with the tragic issue of teen suicide."

"The production team is currently in talks with major distribution companies that deal with religious-themed films."

"The church has already signed up Hollywood cinematographer Brian Baugh to direct the full-length movie and independent filmmaker Nicole Franco to produce it. The film also stars Deja Kreutzberg, who has appeared in 28 episodes of “As the World Turns” as well as TV shows “CSI: Miami” and “Hope & Faith.”"
Rev. 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

The Word of God in numerous places foretells of the corrupted condition of the 'professing church' as being the final state of Christendom, and tells us that at that time it will merge into and become part of the global system of the Antichrist.
When the professed-church is so deluded as to be 'signing up 'Hollywood' to make movies...well..it's not difficult...the bottom line is that these bible prophecies are being fulfilled before our eyes...the "woman rides the beast". The woman is the 'spirit' of false religion and the prophecy is speaking of that time when she will have been joined to the 'beast', i.e. the one world global system. That time has come! The apostasy, the falling away.
The 'woman' has captured the fallen Laodicean church today and has diverted it to serve her every whim, all in the name of 'good deeds' of course. She is devilishly clever...
...and she's not finished...she has her own global plan for 'christians': part of which is to convince them to reject the bible, the very Word of God...and make movies instead of preaching the Word...read: 'Visual Story Network': Fifty-five leaders from 49 organizations met last week to “ignite a global movement of visual story for the sake of Christ’s kingdom.”
Much more of this to come.
This is the future for the Laodicean church...
Rev. 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
