Delusions are dangerous. They can wreck your life, poison your family and get you sent to the hospital. They kill. They injure. And, they claim the lives of countless numbers of people, every year. Hitler murdered tens of millions with a delusion. Stalin, Mao and Planned Parenthood have done the same.
Worse, we have delusions that threaten our eternal destiny. Some will earn us a lessened reward in heaven. Some… SOME delusions will send us to the Lake of Fire.
The question is… WHY?
Why are we so willing to entertain and adopt these illusions, and then… eventually …The Strong Delusion?

The Top Ten Videos Of The Past Week:
It is rare when I hear a preacher say something that makes me want to jump up in the middle of a sermon and yell. And, I almost did that, last Sunday. I even had to get a grip on myself and pray for restraint, to keep from grabbing the guy after church and yelling at him.
What did he do?
He twisted the Bible.
Just a little.
They weren’t huge twists, and most people would not understand why I should be so upset over that sermon. The main idea was correct, and most people would have wondered if I had lost my mind.
(Which would NOT BE TRUE, since I know where it is. I think.)
Sure, he misrepresented what the Bible actually said, multiple times, but his main point was correct, so what was so bad?
Twisting the Bible, is NEVER good. EVER, especially when it is done from the pulpit. And, I still don’t know why he did it. If he shows up next Sunday, I intend to find out why he did it in as friendly a manner as I can manage.
This guy was a missionary to a country in Southeast Asia, having dedicated a significant portion of his life to sharing the gospel under difficult conditions. I know the kind of price that he had to have paid to that, but I do not understand why he was so willing to twist the Bible. And no, WHAT he twisted is not important.
It’s enough to know that he changed what the Bible said, to fit his own world view, a view that he wished to impose on his listeners. With all of his personal sacrifice, why did he do something like this?
I intend to ask him in a very friendly way, but I surmise that what he said came out of a book or some Bible class that he took some time ago. Or, he could have made it up himself. But, where it came from is unimportant. The WHAT is unimportant.
The WHY is what we are looking for.
WHY do men and women distort the words of the Bible?
I could look in the mirror for some of those reasons, since I’ve done my own share of Bible distorting in Forty-thing years as a Christian. In fact, I’m a little embarrassed over some of the things that I’ve gotten so enthusiastically wrong. Loudly, annoyingly, emphatically wrong. I should be glad that God didn’t squish me flat for being such an idiot.
Oh, and since I tend to throw the word ‘heresy’ around – and since that’s what we are talking about – let’s take a detour and define it.
By definition, getting something wrong about the Bible is heresy. Maybe even something as small as comma placement. (Although, I doubt it.) Anyway, let’s look up the definition:
1. adherence to a religious opinion contrary to church dogma
2. dissent or deviation from a dominant theory, opinion, or practice.
That’s a somewhat abridged definition from Webster’s Dictionary, and it’s awfully secular. But, the first part of the second definition is something that I’ve been for so long, I get uncomfortable when too many people agree with me. But, the context that we’re talking about here, is the Bible, the words of God. So, when we say ‘heresy’, we’re talking about something that is contrary to what the Bible actually says.
So, let’s talk about my definition of Biblical heresy:
Adherence to a religious opinion contrary to what the Bible actually says.
Why would someone do this?
FEAR – The Kosher Example
Well, fear is a big reason, and we can turn to Judaism as an example of how fear can cause them to distort the Bible.
One great example would be from Kashrut (pronounced cash-root) or Jewish dietary law. And, one of the biggest parts of those laws has to do with the mixing of milk and meat. Under orthodox observance, even if you thoroughly wash a spoon that has touched milk… if it touches meat, both the spoon and the meat instantly become non-Kosher, or forbidden to eat.
Where does this rule come from?
The second half of this verse:
The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.
– Exodus 23:19
And, the Jews seem to be deathly afraid of violating that rule. So much so, that they’ll distort their lives to make sure that they never break that rule.
Yes, this verse does not say that you cannot boil (seethe) a baby goat in cow’s milk. It just says that you are not allowed to boil a baby goat in the milk of that baby goat’s mother. But, the rabbis are afraid, so this means that you can’t have cheese on your hamburger – and no cream sauce with your chicken, either.
Chickens have milk?
That’s heresy. Period. End of story. It’s not the kind of heresy that will get you sent to Hell. If you want two sets of dishes and forks, be my guest. You’re crazy, but you won’t go to Hell for it.
Heresies that get you sent to Hell are ‘Damnable Heresies’. And, you can find a reference to THAT, here:
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
– 2 Peter 2:1
That. THAT is a heresy that will get you sent to Hell – denying the Lord that bought us. And, Peter goes on in the rest of the chapter, identifying these false teachers.
You can find the chapter here:
That whole chapter speaks to some of the truly awful things that some pastors have been caught doing, without remorse. Those men and women have traded in their eternal life, for a bit of momentary fame. But, none of that really explains why people twist the Bible.
Yogurt And Lamb On Rice
Let’s get back to our fear, the Jewish one. And, let me add a Middle East story.
I once had lunch at an Arab restaurant with a Jewish friend, who was pretty secular. It was a touristy place, and they were offering something that looked cultural and traditional. It was lamb and rice with yogurt. After eating her meal, my friend asked the waiter how they made it.
In heavily accented English, the waiter proceeded to tell her that the lamb came from the restaurant owner’s flock of sheep, and that they milked the mother and made yogurt from the milk. Then they boiled the lamb in the yogurt of its mother. Even though my friend was largely secular, the look of horror on her face grew and grew as the waiter told the story. Eventually, the waiter realized that there was a problem and called for the manager.
The manager looked at my friend and said, “Jewish, right?”
“Look,” he said, “we get the lamb from up north, and the yogurt is from down south. There’s no way that the lamb was cooked in its mother’s milk.”
To this day, my friend will never, ever, EVER eat lamb with yogurt, ever again.But, according to the Bible, she was safe. But, she’ll never get over the story that the waiter told.
But, cheese on a hamburger?
Chicken in a cream sauce?
Separate refrigerators for milk and meat?
Separate silverware and dishes?
Have they lost their minds?
But, they’ve lost their minds, because they are terrified of what might happen, if they accidentally went to a restaurant that actually boils a lamb in yogurt made from the milk of its mother, and served it on rice. And, they take this neurotic fear even further.
What would happen if someone just happened to buy milk in the grocery store that came from the mother of the cow that gave you such a delicious steak?
What would the chances be?
One in a million? A billion?
But, since the chance isn’t zero, they make all these extra rules, just in case.
THAT, my friends, is FEAR.
What’s another reason?
PRIDE And REBELLION
Pride is a big one, and I run into it all the time. And, it’s the biggest reason for why some denominations have female pastors. And, there’s a church just a couple blocks away from us, here in Tainan, that has a female pastor.
That is in direct rebellion against this verse:
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
– 1 Timothy 2:12
Any church that has a female pastor is in direct rebellion against that verse. It’s not a damnable heresy, but it’s pretty bad. And, a church THAT disobedient, will have other problems, too. Stay away from a church with a female pastor.
But, why would a church disobey the Bible, like this?
Well, when I raise the issue, I always hear this refrain:
Well, she’s such a Godly woman, and look at how good her sermons are. And, what a great… (and on and on)
When I point out that it’s still disobedience, the conversation devolves into a character attack along the lines of… “Who are YOU to pass judgment on so-and-so!” And, that usually ends the conversation.
Why are there women who demand that they should be allowed to be pastor?
Why do some men stick to the errors of their church, instead of admitting that they are wrong?
Anglicans, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, Lutherans (and others) all sprinkle instead of baptize. And, they KNOW that the word means immerse/dunk/dip-under-the-water. But, they refuse to acknowledge that they are wrong. Period. End of story.
Then, there’s desire.
This one’s a little harder for me since there are things in the Bible that I do not wish to believe. That I wish were not true. I want more people to go to heaven, than just Christians. I don’t like the restrictions of ethics, honesty and morality. They’re so confining, and often inconvenient. But, God didn’t ask for our opinion.
Let me pick one particularly painful example that makes me cringe:
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
– Matthew 5:32
I hate to even repeat that verse, but it’s there. I can’t ignore it. I must accept it, even though I do not want to. I can even give some rationality behind it. But, I’m still stuck with it, and how painful it is.
My desire is to let any man with an awful wife, or any wife with an awful husband, to divorce and marry someone who isn’t so awful. But, I’m sorry. That’s not what God said.
I must commit myself to what God actually said, instead of inserting something else that I would have preferred Him to have said. And, I know of far too many women for which that verse is very, very painful. And, I’m so sorry – from the bottom of my heart.
The same goes for choosing to marry someone who is not a Christian. I suffered under that restriction for a very, very (painfully very) long time. THAT one saved me from a bad marriage, of THAT I am sure. But, it was so difficult.
Of course, I did not know that God was using my time of singleness to soften the edges and get rid of some of the ‘holier-than-thou’ ideas that I had. I’m a lot easier to live with now, than when I was 30+ years younger. Mrs. Little would have miserable being married to me all those years ago.
THE FIRST STEP – SUBMISSION
The question is…
…are you willing to take the first step towards love of the truth by submitting to what the Bible actually says, instead of what you want it to say?
If it’s hard to say ‘yes’, I understand. It IS hard. And, there’s a part of me that does not like having to submit to what the Bible says. And no, I’m not talking about interpretation here. We can disagree on that. What I’m talking about is submission.
Will you submit?
It’s hard, and it means sacrificing yourself. But, the alternative is worse. Actually, the alternative is so bad, that there isn’t an alternative.
I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating:
Life is short.
Eternity is long.

THIS WEEK’S RESEARCH
My research sources are pretty wide ranging, and their number keep growing. So, instead of listing all of my sources, let me list the ones that deserve special mention:
A big thank you to all who sent me articles. I appreciate all of it.
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…
Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.
And yes, these are pretty serious.
And now, the death machine moves into Virginia. Another state tables a law that allows a woman to murder her unborn child, up to… during… and (essentially) after she gives birth.
Yes, the death machine.
I’m sorry, America needs to die. It needs to be broken up into pieces, with the most evil parts incinerated by the wrath of God. And yes, if this means the complete destruction of America, so be it. America has exported their ‘death machine’ all over the world.
May God judge the foul people in America who made this mass-murder possible, and called it good. May they be utterly destroyed, so that their evil cannot continue. But, there is something that I want more, but will not get.
More than their death and destruction, I want their repentance. I don’t take pleasure in the suffering and death of the wicked. God certainly doesn’t. God wants repentance, but I know that it’s not going to happen. So, it must be suffering and death.
Oh, and make no mistake, some of the evil people that are having abortions, are Christians. I’ve heard countless stories of supposedly ‘christian’ women who had abortions to hide their shame. So, they compounded their sin with murder.
The judgment of God is coming for America, and it is Just.
Do you want to know one of the big reasons why America MUST BE DESTROYED?
This is probably the biggest.
Abortion is murder. And now, they are making it even MORE grotesque.
For those watching what is going on with Shale Oil, it has already become clear that Shale Oil cannot last for long. The fracking frackers are lying to us, and it’s getting harder and harder for them to cover for their own lies.
And, the point of this, is that PEAK OIL is already HERE. You just don’t see it yet. But, you will. And, by that time, it will be far too late.
PEAK OIL is a civilization destroying event, since we chose not to create viable alternatives to oil. And, let me repeat that important word,’VIABLE’. Electric cars are not VIABLE. Hydrogen is not VIABLE. Natural Gas is MORE viable, but that still means that it’s not VIABLE.
Are you getting the picture?
Oh, and why aren’t they ‘not viable’?
Because we do not have the infrastructure to support these ‘alternatives’. And, even if we did, most of all that comes from coal. An electric car is really coal-powered. And, we will soon start running out of THAT.
Oh, and the power grid cannot support everyone having their own electric car.
So, learn to walk.
This illustrates just how unable we are to see the future – and how unable the elites are, to see the future. When Steve Jobs introduced the first smartphone he did not believe that it would become what it is today. It wasn’t his vision. It wasn’t what he was expecting.
This is proof positive that the elites do not have a firm grasp of where the world is going. And, they cannot control it. They can try to direct it. They can try to take advantage of it. But, they have no idea of where it will go or be.
This is the thing that conspiracy theorist need to understand when they cook up their theories – assuming that they care about anything like the truth. Conspiracies are limited. Very limited. And, most of the conspiracy theories out there are complete garbage, because they are fueled by ridiculous paranoia.
But, only most.
The problem is that the ridiculous conspiracy theories are sheltering the real ones. And, those of you passing them around are helping to keep the real conspiracies from being exposed. To put it another way, your ridiculous theories are killing us.
Now, back to Steve Jobs and his iPhone.
Another part of how incredible this all is, is that it shows that technology is taking us places that we never expected. It’s allowing things that could not have dreamed of. And, it’s all a part of our worst nightmares.
The interesting thing is that God knows and knew. This is all a part of God’s plan.
Anyway, let me quote a few paragraphs of this article:
In 2007, Mr. Jobs took the stage at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco and introduced the world to the iPhone. If you watch the full speech, you’ll be surprised by how he imagined our relationship with this iconic invention, because this vision is so different from the way most of us use these devices now. In the remarks, after discussing the phone’s interface and hardware, he spends an extended amount of time demonstrating how the device leverages the touch screen before detailing the many ways Apple engineers improved the age-old process of making phone calls. “It’s the best iPod we’ve ever made,” Mr. Jobs exclaims at one point. “The killer app is making calls,” he later adds. Both lines spark thunderous applause. He doesn’t dedicate any significant time to discussing the phone’s internet connectivity features until more than 30 minutes into the address.
The presentation confirms that Mr. Jobs envisioned a simpler and more constrained iPhone experience than the one we actually have over a decade later. For example, he doesn’t focus much on apps. When the iPhone was first introduced there was no App Store, and this was by design. As Andy Grignon, an original member of the iPhone team, told me when I was researching this topic, Mr. Jobs didn’t trust third-party developers to offer the same level of aesthetically pleasing and stable experiences that Apple programmers could produce. He was convinced that the phone’s carefully designed native features were enough. It was “an iPod that made phone calls,” Mr. Grignon said to me.
Mr. Jobs seemed to understand the iPhone as something that would help us with a small number of activities — listening to music, placing calls, generating directions. He didn’t seek to radically change the rhythm of users’ daily lives. He simply wanted to take experiences we already found important and make them better.
And, the iPhone is what it is today, because USERS demanded it to be this way. Please understand that. It wasn’t by design… it was by USE.
Remember also that Steve Jobs is famous by demanding that pornography not be allowed on iTunes. He said:
“Folks who want porn can buy an Android phone.”
THAT is the kind of guy that Steve Jobs was. He had morals. He might not have been Christian, but he was willing to sacrifice profit for ethics and morality.
Now, here’s the last paragraph of this article:
Early in his 2007 keynote, Mr. Jobs said, “Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.” What he didn’t add, however, was the follow-up promise that “tomorrow, we’re going to reinvent your life.” The iPhone is a fantastic phone, but it was never meant to be the foundation for a new form of existence in which the digital increasingly encroaches on the analog. If you return this innovation to its original limited role, you’ll get more out of both your phone and your life.
I have refused to allow my smartphone to rule my life. The only thing that I use it for is reading books, and I only do that because I digitized all of them before leaving the US. I wanted to keep myself as light as possible, so that God could easily move me around to where He needed me.
That is literally why I have a smartphone, instead of a ‘normal’ and ‘dumb’ cell phone.
Oh, and it’s easier to carry my Bible around. I have always always carried my Bible with me, everywhere that I’ve gone – long before we even had cell phones.
The question is… what other device will pop up and change the way that we live. Remember that Satan and his minions can’t predict the future, which is why they will be trapped into doing what God wants them to do.
But, rest assured, we humans are so evil that someone, somewhere, will create something that everyone will lust after. And, we will use it so much in ten or twenty years, that we won’t want to live without it. In fact, it might be something that we won’t be ABLE to live without.
And, Satan’s Antichrist will use it to control the world.
I can only hope that you’ll be ready for this.
This is sickening. These dirtbags are lying and lying and lying and lying and lying. They have no shame, no conscience or ANYTHING that resembles something healthy.
And, the lies about how they censor content creators, have become so bad, that they are completely and utterly impossible to hide their lies.
I can hardly believe it.
I like well-written articles, written by adroit word-smiths. And, this is one of those. And, the fact that he understands the subject of revolution and why everyone seems to be doing the same thing over and over again… (and expecting different results) …is also worth the price of admission.
This guy knows what he’s talking about, and I want to point you to the most important paragraphs:
Senator Warren apparently has found her guiding spirit and has announced along with her presidential campaign a campaign of economic terror based on force, not law. Specifically, she has proposed to begin seizing a portion of the assets of some wealthy Americans, a course of action that the federal government has no constitutional power to undertake. The seizure of assets is a fundamentally different thing from the taxation of income, which itself took a constitutional amendment to implement. What Warren is proposing is essentially a federal version of the hated asset-forfeiture programs that have been so much abused by law-enforcement agencies — minus the allegation of criminal misconduct and made universal and annual.
And then, later in his article, Kevin Williamson says this:
When the socialist schemes of Joseph Stalin et al. foundered, they blamed the “kulaks,” i.e. those who had enjoyed the “unmerited accumulation of riches.” There was never any real definition of a “kulak.” Basically, if you had one cow and your neighbor had two, he was a kulak. Stalin announced the “liquidation of the kulaks as a class” as a necessary precondition for the progress of his program, which was, like Kamala Harris, “for the people.” Dekulakization (раскулачивание) was responsible for the deaths of about 5 million subjects of the workers’ paradise. This was necessary, the socialists argued, because the kulaks dominated the political party system (“for the rich, wealth begets power,” Zucman writes), because expropriating their wealth was necessary to fund benefits for the people (“The affluent,” Saez and Zucman write, “can contribute more to the public coffers. And given the revenue needs of the country, it is necessary”), because the kulaks were hoarders (under the headline “Elizabeth Warren is trying to save capitalism from itself,” David Atkins of Washington Monthly decries the “artificial lack of resources caused by the looting and hoarding of the obscenely wealthy”), etc.
Oh, and if you need to know WHO a ‘kulak’ is… it’s someone with one dollar more than you have decided that they should have. Oh, and you might have opinions that are worth killing you over.
And, if you do have such opinions or that extra dollar that they want to kill you for, think about a move to Zurich or Singapore – or a similar place that would provide some security.
Lizzie Warren and Occaisional Cortex want you dead. Don’t let them kill you, if you can avoid it.
For some reason, it took a while for me to find out what exactly Lizzie was proposing. Well, here it is:
Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, plans to propose a tax of 2 percent on those with assets of $50 million to $1 billion and 3 percent on all fortunes exceeding $1 billion, the Washington Post reported Thursday. The tax would raise $2.75 trillion over a decade from about 75,000 families, the newspaper said, citing an economist advising Warren on the plan.
And then, when that doesn’t work, she’ll lower the limit. And then, lower it some more. Just like the Soviets did in Eastern Europe.
It’s Lizzie Bor… er …Warren, yet another version of the Soviet Gulag.
Oh wow. Here’s more. It’s Faux-cahontas at her worst. This is horrendous. This would completely destroy America.
Basically, this article is contained in the first three sentences:
DAVOS, Switzerland — They’ll never admit it in public, but many of your bosses want machines to replace you as soon as possible.
I know this because, for the past week, I’ve been mingling with corporate executives at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos. And I’ve noticed that their answers to questions about automation depend very much on who is listening.
However, you might be interested in the details.
I was a hidden part of some of those details, writing API guides for one of the earlier machine learning applications that was bought by Well Fargo, to automate their customer service email platform.
With our application, they could have gotten rid of 99% of their customer service representatives – at least in terms of their email. And, their errors would have reduced dramatically and accuracy would have increased. And, for all that I know, they might have done that.
And, this application was developed more than twenty years ago.
However, my concern isn’t about people losing their jobs – although, I don’t like the thought of that. No, I’m more concerned about the ability to control the world.
What started out as an attempt to improve accuracy and cut costs, has morphed into an ability to monitor and control. It started out as one thing, for an initial reason, and has/will become something darker and more sinister.
Twenty years ago, we would have been appalled at what our applications were being used for. Now, we are left with disgust and depression.
The age of total control is upon us. And, the only thing that will slow it down, is cataclysm and catastrophe. And, those are coming too. Think of the massive disasters that are coming… think of them a opportunities to slow down the arrival of the Kingom of the Wicked One. Of course, they might also hasten his arrival.
And, here’s another example of how they are going to be able to keep track of you.
This is so flat-out awful, that I’m quoting most of this article. And, you’ll notice that they lead with high-profile stupidity and pretty much claim that THIS is really all that they are doing is removing ‘silliness’ from YouTube.
Here’s what they are saying:
YouTube said Friday it will stop recommending specious videos such as those claiming the earth is flat or promoting bogus theories about the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The global video streaming service planned to modify its viewing recommendation system gradually, starting in the United States and later expanding to other countries.
Google-owned YouTube, part of the Alphabet holding, said it is scrutinizing how to reduce the spread of content that comes close to but doesn’t quite cross the line of violating its community guidelines.
“To that end, we’ll begin reducing recommendations of borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways,” YouTube said in a blog post.
“Such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11.”
YouTube estimated the change would affect less than one percent of content at the service but would improve the experience for users.
Videos deemed to be just shy of violating community guidelines will remain accessible and come up in search results, they just won’t be suggested as worth watching, according to YouTube.
“We think this change strikes a balance between maintaining a platform for free speech and living up to our responsibility to users,” YouTube said.
Both human review and machine learning will be used to train the recommendation system on questionable videos, the company said.
I’ve said for a long time that the morons who believe that the Earth is Flat, are creating a situation that allows evil organizations to suppress ACTUAL conspiracies.
This is absolutely blatant and revolting. But, it’s also to be expected in a society that is so devoid of morality and ethics. And, that’s why you won’t find much of an ‘outcry’ over this.
Good job, Flat Earthers. You morons have offered up the one excuse that Google needed to do its dirty work. Because, included in those ‘bogus theories’, will be the fact that Building Seven of the World Trade Center, fell straight down – at free fall speed – without having been hit by an airplane.
But, go ahead and lump us in with the Flat Earth Morons.
Now, I’m wondering why I should be so annoyed. We knew that this was going to happen.
Here’s more from the moronic LA Times. They accuse YouTube of defining ‘hate speech’ too ‘narrowly’ – defining it as that which’ promotes violence or hatred of vulnerable groups.
EXCUSE ME, BUT THAT’S ALREADY TOO BROAD OF A DEFINITION!!!
One of these days, my hatred of Cho Dofu (stinky tofu) will get me banned, and I’ll be REALLY upset. We need more of that hatred, but our rights will be denied. And then, the moron writing this article, says this:
Advocates say those policies don’t go far enough to prevent people from being exposed to misleading information, and that YouTube’s own software often pushes people to the political fringes by feeding them extremist content that they do not seek out.
Yeah, they must think that the average person is too stupid to figure out what is fact, and what isn’t. Of course, because of America’s public education system, this might actually be true.
I just find it ironic that foreign language videos will not get this treatment. This means that English speakers will be far more vulnerable to strong delusion, than anyone else.
How utterly appropriate.
Here’s the paragraph that clarifies everything:
Although Google said the changes will not affect “whether a video is available on YouTube,” judging by the personal experience of several popular YouTube commentators, for example, Mark Dice, the new algorithm is so effective that even when the exact title of one of his ‘controversial’ videos is entered into the channel’s search field it will not yield the correct result.
That’s right. There are Mark Dice videos that have millions of views, that you cannot find by doing a search for the exact title of the video.
And, Google has done the same for me and some of my articles – where you cannot find some of my articles, no matter how hard you look, if you are using Google.
You are slowly being brainwashed.
Yes, if you’ve noticed that ‘squeaky-clean’ feeling to your thoughts, it’s that new brand of ‘brain wash’ that they’re using.
Remember what I said last week about ‘Newsguard’?
Well, they aren’t just satisfied with blocking access to ‘alternative’ news sites. No, they are going after advertisers who might give advertising dollars to pro-Trump sites.
Oh wow, and it gets even worse.
There is a picture in this article, of a US soldier standing in the middle of a field of flowering opium poppies, the very same poppies that produce heroin. And, that picture encapsulates the reason why America and the world is suffering from an opioid epidemic.
Heroin is flooding in from Afghanistan. Ninety percent of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan, and the CIA is responsible for its distribution.
Do you need proof?
Ask yourself what the field that this soldier stands in… what it looks like from the air. Then, ask yourself how hard would it be to send planes in to spray those fields with herbicide.
The US controls Afghani air space. They can do this, if they want. But, they don’t do the spraying. Therefore, this must be what they want.
Is there ANY OTHER interpretation?
Someone can do something. It’s not hard to do. But, they don’t do it.
Am I missing something here?
This means that America is the biggest drug dealer in the world – of the worst drug ever produced by mankind. Heroin. America did this and is doing ths.
For those of you who are American, your tax dollars are making this happen. Our taxes did this. And, we sent our boys to do this.
Tell me again why God should spare His wrath from destroying America?
This is the specific picture. I’m looking for a larger version, or something like it.
This is an EXCELLENT point. Local politics is triumphing over globalism. The world is shifting AWAY from trust in government.
Does this mean that we are winning?
Remember that the Antichrist will not appeal just to the rich and powerful. No, he will appeal to the locals, everywhere in the world. So, don’t think that we are winning here. We’re still ‘losing’. And, I put that in quotes because we’ve already won.
The point is that we are seeing a shift towards regionalism and local politics. It’s temporary, but real. And, the elites were caught by surprise.
I couldn’t finish this. It’s disgusting.
They claim that they have no idea why this dirtbag tried to murder as many people as he could, from that window?
And, the inconsistencies in the reports mean nothing?
There doesn’t need to be some larger conspiracy. But, a report like this is either so incompetent that the agents in charge should be fired… or there is a conspiracy. And, I honestly don’t care which.
America is set on a course for God’s judgment. God will make sure that evil plans and evil deeds are successful. And, there’s no way that you will be able to fight against that. So, if you want to make a big deal out of this shooting, knock yourself out.
You aren’t going to get anywhere. We Americans have sinned against God. Worse, our American brothers and sisters in Christ, have sinned against God and brought this upon themselves.
If you are looking for a way out of this, turn to your Bible. You might not be able to save America. But, God might spare YOU.
Here are the main questions in this case, quoting from this article, which is quoting from the Baltimore Post Examiner, from last year:
Why was Paddock’s autopsy conducted six days after the massacre and not sooner?
Why didn’t Clark County Coroner, John Fudenberg release Paddock’s autopsy report immediately when ordered by the judge to do so on January 30?
Why did it take so long to send Paddock’s brain to Stanford University Medical Center since the autopsy was performed on October 6 and SUMC state they did not receive it until November 27?
How can the coroner’s office make a monumental mistake and list the date of Paddock’s death as for Monday, Oct. 2, 2017 at 12 o’clock noon (1200 hours)?
Paddock is the worst mass shooter in American history and once again an official report from the authorities involved in the investigation indicates false information.
Did anybody even proofread the autopsy report at the coroner’s office before it was released or was it thrown together in haste because the coroner believed it would never be made public?
Like I said, this is either a horribly incompetent investigation, or there’s a coverup. And, I have a hard time believing that the people assigned to this case would be THAT incompetent.
Mrs. Little told me that she liked what Tony and Mike were saying, and if the Missus likes this video, you will too. Seriously, give this a listen.
My own addition to their comments is that the bottom line is a real commitment to what the Bible actually says. We all have things that are wrong. All of us. But, are we willing to actually submit to what the Bible says?
Are we willing to actually submit?
And, do we truly hold God and His people above that of our nation?
Are we Christians, first?
I’m a Christian first, a husband second and maybe an American fifth or sixth. Or seventh. And no, I’m not sure what’s in between. I just know that America has become an evil degenerate country that is destroying the world with pornography, horribly immorality, drugs and war.
Yet another intelligent argument against the ‘global warming’ hoax. It’s well written, thoughtful, and highly recommended for those of you who might be wondering about whether global warming is a legitimate idea.
This will be another way to shut down websites that Google doesn’t like – by making itself the one who determines whether a website is a fraud, or not. Websites will have to come crawling and begging to Google, so that their sites won’t be flagged as an attempt to defraud you.
This is one more step towards the corporate takeover of our world.
Here’s more. And, this article DOES illustrate a big problem:
People trying to steal your money.
And, because we have refused to crack down on this problem, it proliferates. We COULD have spent money on tracking down these foul and evil scammers, but we chose not to. So, now we get something like this.
And yes, it’s not that hard to find these thieves, if you invest in the kind of hardware that can track these fiends from hell, and then do something about them, when you find them. But, that also requires governments to actually follow through on this kind of thing.
And, governments haven’t.
The irony, is that I was in a television report about hackers stealing and selling credit card numbers. This was back in the early ’80s, long before the Internet. I’d found a BBS server where someone was selling Visa and Mastercard numbers. I went to the television station and the police. The station ran a story and the police did nothing.
It was too complex of an idea for them to grasp, and I was just a kid. And, there just wasn’t enough integrity running around for anyone to actually track the dirtbags down and make them pay.
When you are short on integrity, you eventually get bad outcomes.
So, now the government is attempting to force out families for their areas of jurisdiction. They are deliberately making larger apartments and childcare, hard to find. So, not only are they murdering babies before they are born, they are doing their best to make life miserable for them after the are born.
Have you noticed the number of bugs on your windshield in the sping and summer?
Well, there’s a reason for that. The ecology is collapsing. This is extremely serious, and we aren’t paying any attention to this. And then, we have the banks that are in bad shape, especially the central banks.
Will you be ready when it all falls apart?
Here’s the write up for the above video, and the first paragraph is here:
Futurist and economic researcher Chris Martenson says a collapse is “a process, not an event.” Martenson contends the long awaited global collapse, on many fronts, has not only started, but is picking up speed. Martenson says, “Our prediction at PeakProsperity.com is these collapse trends, we have been following for 10 years now, are accelerating and continuing. None of them are reversing at this point in time. These will impact people’s future in a huge way. Environmentally, we see these signs, but we also have $245 trillion of debt in the global economy. We have been accelerating that debt cycle as if we could just keep that trend going forever—we can’t. So, what we see are all these unsustainable trends converging. They are going to happen . . . and people need to be ready.”
As he says, this is a process. Not an ‘event’. And, this ‘process’ will lead to more than a billion dead.
Greg is one of the few – actually one of only TWO – people that I pay attention to on matters of finance. I’ll listen to other people blather on about this or that, but Greg and Martin Armstrong are the only two people that I really listen to. And, they are both on opposite ends in terms of their strategy. Greg is a short term trader. Martin is long term. But, both see the markets clearly. And, they both see what the elites are doing.
There is no way that this is going to be fixed. If you thought that Trump was the Great White Hope, you lose. It’s all a charade, and we are all being played for fools.
ARTICLES OF NOTE
These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.
Okay, these guys were in Taiwan when this was filmed, and it’s a chance to see the stunning scenery of back-roads Taiwan, on the EASTERN side of the island. If God sent us to Hualien or Yilan, I don’t think that I would complain. (At least, not much.)
However, there IS a serious side to this video, for those of you planning on living in China. Domestic standards in China are HORRIBLE. And, you could get sick or die if you are not careful. You could call it the Wild West of consumerism, but it’s actually the Wild East.
Annnd, America was just the same, in the 1800s, before the government required food and drug manufacturers to produce healthy and safe products. Libertarians need to remember their history and stop preaching nonsense.
Freedom only works with people are honest and moral.
This is how you know when you are looking at someone who is LITERALLY HITLER.
Straight news from a satire site.
By now, America will have turned her scant attention to some other victim. But, these kids will be forever changed by the knowledge that they were unjustly abused by those who should have protected them. They now know just how evil America is, and they know that they can trust no one – not even their own church.
America has fallen so low, I am amazed. And, I shouldn’t be. America has become an immoral country that feeds upon the young and the innocent. They willingly abuse the weak and devour the defenseless. They have no conscience. And, I am so sorry.
How dare we lift up our heads and be proud of our nation.
Kurt takes the right approach with this Nathan Phillips character who lied about his service. Well done. The media were deplorable, disgusting and completely fake.
A pitiful liar who couldn’t take pride in his service and had to lie.
Of course, he also tried to destroy the lives of young teenagers, but that’s another issue.
Some of this is pure CIA. But, only some. Think of the takeover of Hawaii, Guam, The Philippines and the innumerable ‘banana wars’ engineered by the US government.
I’m sorry, but America has fought unending war since it’s very beginning. There might have been some ‘good wars’ mixed in there. But, most of them were wars of aggression in an attempt to gain power and prestige.
This seems to indicate that Maduro doesn’t have all that much time left. If it is common knowledge that you need foreign mercenaries to guard you, you’re pretty much finished.
We’ll see what happens, but this doesn’t look good.
The outrage mob strikes again, this time in Canada – proving that they are morons and bags of dirt, all at the same time.
This goes under the ‘rumors of wars’ category. From Matthew 24:6. Hopefully, it doesn’t get to the ‘wars’ part. I would much rather they just stuck to talking about war, instead of actually doing it.
The fool who wrote this, and the paper that printed it, can’t seem to understand that the EU did it to themselves. And, this article seems unable to understand any of this.
Why are fools and the insane allowed to publish such articles?
No, don’t answer that. It’s a stupid question.
If you are a Roman Catholic, and can’t see how stupid and blasphemous this comment is… I can only shake my head.
Maybe this is the reason why the pedophiles and homosexuals have taken over the Roman Catholic Church?
Mark this one down as PROBABLY true.
Babylon Bee has again, hit just a little bit too close to the truth for comfort.
I like this idea, and I’m an Indiana boy. But first, I would like the teachers to pass this test, before students are required to.
Wow. That’s amazing. Essentially, they are saying that you aren’t allowed to be a parent, once your daughter reaches the age of 12.
Because they want to make sure that she can have as much sex as she wants, and as many abortions as she wants, as early as she biologically can.
THAT is just another definition of evil – foul, filthy and disgusting.
And, just in case you weren’t disgusted enough by how awful and corrupt Facebook is, here’s more:
A number of organizations, including ProPublica, have developed tools to let the public see exactly how Facebook users are being targeted by advertisers.
Now, Facebook has quietly made changes to its site that stop those efforts.
ProPublica, Mozilla and Who Targets Me have all noticed their tools stopped working this month after Facebook inserted code in its website that blocks them.
Expecting people to not be corrupt – especially, those as rich as Mark Zuckerberg – is foolish. But, I can’t help myself. I expect people to tell the truth. I expect people to be honest. I want them to be honest.
Of course, I’m not so naive as to trust their honesty. Unfortunately, it also means that I must live in a constant state of outrage. Not an easy way to live.
Ooops! MonSatan has suffered a setback.
Oh, it’s Chicago. The second most corrupt city in America.
Physically attacking a politician should be harshly punished, even if that politician is horribly disgusting. Rand Paul isn’t, but that doesn’t matter in this case. Political violence should NEVER be allowed, if you wish the country to survive.
And, the fact that this ‘Boucher’ is a bag of dirt… well …let’s just say that he would not want me in the jury, while this case is being heard.
Unfortunately, it’s not just HOW MUCH time they are spending in front of the TV, but also the amount of brainwashing that this child is getting.
Do you really want these people teaching your child the meaning of morality, ethics and the difference between right and wrong?
Tell me again how America has the best healthcare in the world?
Well, this is yet another example of how corruption consumes itself. It’s one of the reasons why Satan has such a hard time mounting an organized opposition to righteousness.
Satan’s foul minions hate each other and do their best to destroy one another on a regular basis. It’s one of the reasons why I say that evil is so stupid.
Roger does a good job in this piece, and I’m not sure that the bathroom ‘scandal’ will actually hurt him. Although, it certainly hurt him in MY eyes.
Karen J shared this via email, and it points to the success of Taiwan, compared to China. Unfortunately, the GDP numbers don’t equate to how much people are paid in Taiwan. The average person here is poorly paid, while some of the very rich do very well.
This is still a country where the average person owns a scooter or a bus pass. And, the scooters here drive in swarms.
I just find it ironic that the first time that I ever saw a Lamborghini, was in Taipei. In fact, I have seen examples of the most expensive ‘super-cars’ on the streets of Taipei. And, they are examples of the most expensive forms of stupidity that I have ever seen.
Only a fool buys a car that can never get out of second gear, 99.9999% of the time. Of course, the Taiwanese are still human – which means just as stupid as anyone else.
Remember what I said last week:
We’re all stupid. All of us. You. Me. Everyone.
The Taiwanese, too. But, they’re also adorable and annoying, all at the same time. A lot like Israelis, which might be why I like them.
My hope is that Taiwan continues to survive, while China falls.
Since I live here, it’s kinda personal.
Well, it looks like we have some positive news for a change. This bag of dirt was finally dragged in from the cold. The question is whether they will take down the rest of his evil compadres.
Would you like to be Facebook’s lab rat for $20/month? Where your entire life is sifted through – along with the lives of everyone that you communicate with?
And, would your friends like being a part of this?
Because they would be.
Unfortunately, this really is the Democrat Party.
This was actually a reasonable decree, given the rather extreme situation.
There are a couple of F-bombs in this one, but it shows the utter ridiculousness of the mainstream media, that I just had to put it in. So, apologies for he language.
No apologies for the outrage.
This is what happens when you elect a Muslim to Congress.
Fentanyl and Heroin. America can’t get enough of it, which is why it’s pouring across the border.
CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT
What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this.
Remember what John Adams said about democracies. They always commit suicide. And, that is what America is doing.
This is yet another example of bad journalism. Stone is not accused of hiding information about Trump’s ‘collusion’ with Russia. They’re accused of lying about other things, that they might or might not have lied about.
This is just disgusting – especially when far worse offenders like Hillary Clinton are untouched. Hillary actually engaged in treason, and crimes so obvious that I’m amazed that something like this hasn’t blown up in her face.
But, there’s nothing. Because Washington D.C. is unbelievably corrupt.
Wait. A corrupt newspaper was successfully forced to apologize for lying?
Here, let me look out the window.
Nope, the world has not ended.
So, I’m not sure how Mrs. Trump was able to make this happen. At the very least, I’m impressed.
Oh, and I’m impressed that she was studying to be an architect, before she switched to modeling.
This is a pithy, well-written article by someone who used to run the Washington Times. And, it features the revolting image of Chuckie and Nancy together.
I just want to know what a tanglefoot foxtrot is.
Here’s another corrupt article. It’s first paragraph labels his words as racist, when his words weren’t even addressing racism.
White nationalists and white supremecists are morons. They’re drooling idiots with the intelligence of a turnip. But, it sounded to me like he was taken completely out of context.
But, rationality and logic are no more in America, so I should not expect the AP to be logical or rational.
So, when we thought that her husband’s politics indicated that she might be anti-Trump… we were right.
So, she’s Kellyanne ‘The Weasel’ Conway. A lying liar and a Washington swamp monster.
I would take a truly honest socialist over a corrupt Republican. And yes, I mean that. Of course, finding an honest socialist is hard, but it seems that finding an honest Republican is just as hard.
In fact, is there ANYONE IN WASHINGTON who’s honest?
Here’s the paragraph that should tell you everything:
As I watched Kellyanne in operation over our time in the White House, my view of her sharpened. It became hard to look long at her without getting the sense that she was a cartoon villain brought to life. Her agenda—which was her survival over all others, including the president—became more and more transparent. Once you figured that out, everything about her seemed so calculated; every statement, even a seemingly innocuous one, seemed poll-tested by a focus group that existed inside her mind. She seemed to be perennially cloaked in an invisible fur coat, casting an all-knowing smile, as if she’d collected 98 Dalmatians with only 3 more to go.
Cliff Sims also speaks of the proximity to power eroding your principles. Actually, it corrodes them. Or both. It’s one of the reasons why I did NOT want to see Micheal Snyder elected to the Senate or Congress. Or, anything.
Yes, it would be nice to have Godly men and women elected to high office, but they would also need to be extra careful not to become corrupt. Even then, they wouldn’t last in office long. Although, that would depend upon how righteous your voters were.
And, to give a bit of extra evidence that Kellyanne Conway was a snake…
Unfortunately, these power-hungry men and women are NOT concerned with the country. They are concerned about the organizations that they work for.
Specifically, Haspel. Her concern is for the CIA. Not America. America can go to Hell, for all that she cares. She’s loyal to the CIA.
Wait, socialism doesn’t work, when you ask for details?
Why does Amerika seem more and more like Hitler’s Germany?
Why are these judges issuing ‘gag orders’?
How is it possible, in the supposedly ‘land of the free’ that judges can get away with ‘gag orders’?
How is it possible for ANY JUDGE to suppress someone’s right to speak freely?
A gag order?
My fellow Americans, you have lost your country.
Roger Stone was arrested for ‘lying to Congress’.
Did we forget about all those other people who lied to Congress and suffered no consequences?
Well, here are just a few names… In fact, I’ll quote Trump’s tweet, which lists them:
If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page & lover, Baker and soooo many others? What about Hillary to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa & Peter’s deleted texts & Wiener’s laptop? Much more!
Yeah. What about those people?
Secret charges, secret courts and even secret jails.
And, the charges against him are merely for the fact that he embarrassed the US government. He uncovered the evil that they were doing, and it is not illegal for him to have done so.
So now, they want him dead. I know that we’re talking about ‘legal charges’ here. But, you and I know that their preference – strong preference – is for Julian to have an ‘accident’.
Here, let me interpret for you:
Mueller’s corruption has become obvious, and he doesn’t like people talking about it.
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE
We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.
In fact, it has begun already.
By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.
This is NOT about the Uyghurs or human rights violations. This is all about the coming collapse of China’s economy. China needs to be able to clamp down, hard. Making life difficult for journalists is a part of that.
GDP for the world is about $80 trillion. Global debt is $66 trillion, and we are entering – or, are already in – a recession.
Will a stock market crash happen in 2019?
It’s hard to know, but it’s not the main market to worry about. The BOND market is where the crushing blow will land. THAT will kill EVERYTHING.
So, will the bond market collapse in 2019?
Well, the Federal Reserve is doing everything that it can to avoid that.
Annnnnnd, we have an OOOOPS!
This is apalling. In this supposedly ‘great’ economy, 16% of the top 1500 companies can’t even make the intrest payments on their debt without going into MORE debt or selling off assets.
Um… this is more ‘OOPS’.
Ultimately, I’m posting these to keep my sanity. Hopefully, you find them funny to, but that’s not the point.
After having posted all that stuff above… I’ve just gotta’ post some fun stuff, or Mrs. Little will be forced to drag me off to the looney farm.
Oh, and the fact that she likes a lot of these too, helps.
One of the most adorable kittens that I ever rescued was a bit like this. A couple of Russian girls (sisters) adopted him, but were worried that it was bad luck to have a black cat.
Luckily, the little guy turned out to be slightly less than completely black.
Silly Russians. But, they love animals of all kinds, so I give them a pass.
There is a reason why there is actually a term called ‘Florida Man’. Yes, there really is something about living in Florida – or FLAWI-DAH – that does something to the mind.
Mrs. Little likes pool. She was impressed. So, it goes in.
And, it IS impressive.
Only in China. No, really.
This, THIS, works for me.
Send this to a Flat Earther.
Conflict on every. single. page. Make your characters suffer. Bleed.
Yes, kids, chemistry can be fun.
Yes, the kind of experiment that we’ve all been waiting for.
Which came first?
Just so that you know… this is me. Just sayin’.
Dogs are the best people.
I would love to live near a Wal-Mart and do this.
If true, this could only happen in a place like Taiwan.
This made Mrs. Little go awwwwwww, so as the dutiful husband that I am… I am dutifully putting this in. Dutifully. With muchness.
This is for all of us who don’t get a chance to see snow. For the rest of you poor people… I have felt your pain.
Oh, and gif #21 happened to me. At night. In somewhat heavier traffic. Going downhill. Some of my white hair might come from that. Might.
Oh, and the poor guy sliding on black ice down his driveway?
Did that too, although not as bad.
Syrian hamsters are completely adorable. And, all of them actually come from a hamster colony that was brought from Syria, to what was then called Palestine. We once took care of our adorable niece’s hamster and discovered that they love chewing on cabled, cords and your favorite clothes.
Syrian hamsters are the most adorable little terrorists, ever.
Oh, and this is me. Seriously. I’m not stupid.
When you have too much time on your hands…
Okay, this might be true. I think that we should check.
EVIL PLUS INSANITY
There’s something about evil that creates people that are wicked and insane. And, that is what this category is all about.
And, to tell you the truth, I can hardly believe what I’m seeing here.
What did the morons in the Democratic Party expect?
They went far left, and the average American is disgusted by that.
Of course, Schultz is as much of a moron as the rest. He’s just more careful in how he communicates his foolishness.
Hey, the morons are threatening to boycott Starbucks?
They’re going to join ME in boycotting over-priced caffeine drinks?
Oh, it’s California.
I’m looking at the utter stupidity of all this, and I can hardly believe what I’m seeing.
Donald Trump is a Russian agent?
Is this some kind of freak show?
Did I wake up in the Twilight Zone?
Did Monty Python take control of CNN?
Is there some way that I can get farther away from this utter insanity? I went to the other side of the planet, but apparently… it’s not far enough.
She’s Occasional Cortex.
I’m wondering if insanity is conageous, since a lot of people have it.
We are seeing the fulfillment of the words of Jesus, right now. And, it seems that Islam is leading the way. What insanity!
What is wrong with North America and Europe?
Have they – and we – gone insane?
Uh oh. Houston, we’ve had a problem. And, it’s still here.
The question is… how long can Maduro hold out?
Unfortunately, his corruption is so incredible, that he will either need to go into exile or fight to the death. I’m not sure if survival is a reasonable third option.
It’s the Aloha Snackbar people!
Peace, love, understanding and blood everywhere.
The religion of pieces. Everywhere.
This is ‘last gasp’ stuff, for dictators. When they start doing this, in front of everyone. Without a viable excuse, other than just ‘staying in power’, they’re finished.
Great. Now , Finland.
Is there any place on Earth where Islam is not a vicious scourge?
This is sick.
When was the last time that you saw ‘Buddhist Grooming Gangs’? ‘Hindu Grooming Gangs’?
No, it’s always Muslims. Always.
So, if you write AIRMAX upside down, in a certain way, it spells out Allah, in Arabic.
Should I buy some, just because it infuriates the Muslims so much?
Well, not for that reason. But, you might forgive me for enjoying this whole, stupid fracas.
The opposition to Maduro is doing an excellent job of making the military think that maybe they should switch sides. This is top grade psych warfare.
GOG AND MAGOG
I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:
– ezekielsfire.com –
And, the articles below point to that coming. I really, Really, REALLY hope that you’ll be ready for this. Please read Ezekiel’s Fire to make sure. (And yes, it’s free.)
Annnnnd, we inch closer to the coming of Gog and Magog. The one thing keeping Iran from actually attacking Israel, is her air force. It’s a joke. If Iran were to directly attack Israel, her military assets would get hammered by the IAF.
So, whose air force will Iran need?
Of course, Russia. No one else has the air force and military technology to take on Israel.
And, to reinforce the point even further, here’s The Times of Israel.
Let me remind you that Iran’s most elite military unit is called the Jerusalem Force – (aka, Quds Force). Their goal, since the days of Ayatollah Khomeini, has been the capture of Jerusalem.
Trump is right on this one. The CIA is ignoring Iran, as are the other intelligence agencies. Iran is far, far more dangerous than China or Russia.
China and Russia can be reasoned with. Iran cannot.
There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.
I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.
So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.
My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
– Psalm 122:6
May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.
Hassan Nasrallah has poked his nose out of his hidey-hole?
He’s come out of his burrow to shake his fist at Israel?
The fact that he has, indicates that Israel is making progress. So, this article is a good sign. Hezbollah has been hurt, and that’s a good sign. Unfortunately, I don’t think that they’ve been hurt enough.
If successful, this will stand out as yet another reason to praise God for Israel – not that antisemites will pay attention.
I was talking to a friend who used to live in Israel, and this subject came up.
Most of you living outside of Israel don’t know what it means to live INSIDE Israel. It’s hard. It’s stressful. You are forced to live in what the average American would consider poverty.
That’s how I lived in Israel.
You are paid poorly. Everything is horribly expensive. And, the stress of the incessant conflict from the Arabs wears you down. And, the only thing keeping you there is the belief that Israel is worth sacrificing for – or, that God has called you there to sacrifice for Him.
Just take the last two lines from this article, a kind of postscript:
Ze’ev Portner is an oleh from London, an Israeli attorney, but is currently working as a receptionist at a company in Petah Tikva
Of course, that was written in 2013. The ‘About the Author’ is more current, and he’s been able to claw his way out of such a low level job.
The point is that he was willing to pay an incredible price for something worth believing in. Like me, he had a massive amount of education and experience. But, he was willing to throw it all away, to go to Israel to be a… receptionist.
And, that’s pretty much my story as well. Most receptionists in America are paid more than I made as a Technical Writer, in Israel. But, the sacrifice was worth. Still worth it.
I would do it again. In a heartbeat.
But, the price… It’s so high. So, I understand why 90 percent of Americans go back to America. I mean, it’s why so many Israelis try to leave Israel and go to America.
By the way, the author says that 80% of Western Olim go back to their country of origin. But, when you focus on American Olim, the statistics go way up. To 90%, or more. (Most likely, more.)
Life in Israel is hard.
But, it’s also good.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
