It now seems as if the United States never recovered from two World Wars, a Police Action in Korea, and the “Cold” War with the Russian-China empires. These wars seem to hover over the nation’s foreign policies and its continuing ‘almost’ war plans. Added to these entanglements is the seldom-discussed fact that the U.S. has not ‘won’ any of these wars since WWII. Their inadequate secular educations, and unwillingness to wholly discuss these failures, mean that most inert political commentators fail to reveal that these war ‘losses’ are America’s own fault.
How could such pseudo-intellectuals have known that the U.S. Supreme Court actually ‘lost’ those wars when, in 1962, they voted to take prayer out of public school classrooms? What’s worse is that in the same decade, across the country, pastors, bishops, and other ‘religious’ leaders decided to discontinue mid-week prayer meetings in local churches, because ‘major’ denominational seminaries advised that Bible studies should replace prayer meetings. And now, some 50 years later, most church congregations have little Bible knowledge and no joint prayer meetings.
Boy, what a stupid, stubborn, godless way for those who confess Christianity to lose wars. Even now, when everyone else thinks the Cold War is over, Russia, Cuba, China, and especially North Korea, never got the memo. While the rest keep sinking deeper into poverty, China, which claims Cold War Communism, in truth prospers by using Capitalism. But North Korea, one of those wars the U.S. refused to win, now has a handful of strike-able nuclear missiles, and its murderously insane leader, threatens to destroy the whole non-praying side of the Western United States.
Even a few, not necessarily Christian, mentors of culture seem to sense that if the U.S. does not get its praying knees bowed, they will bow to North Korea. M.A.S.H. (Mobil Army Surgical Hospital)–the hit T.V. show from the 60s and 70s, based on a smash movie of the same era, which was likewise based on a novel of the same name by Hiester Richard Hornberger, who was drafted as a surgeon into trying to save lives during The Korean War—recently returned to T.V. on several channels.
Moreover, T.V.’s History Channel, is running a new series, based on World Wars I and II. Along with Hornberger’s work, this television series attempts to illustrate the horrors of wars that can only be won or loss—actually determined by whether Christian countries choose to cry out to God in prayer. Hornberger’s novel, and resulting artistic attempts, illustrate how futile medical attempts to save lives can be when Satan’s servants determine to kill soldiers and civilians by the millions.
Even as he attempts to revamp America’s weakened military, the new President must sense that a new war—unlike, and worse, than anything in World War I and II and beyond—may be on the horizon. Now is the last time for Christians in the U.S. to take umbrage at the warning that politicians, or the military, or medical doctors cannot hold off the fact that a war, like no other, may soon hit this country. There is only one way to hold off this war. Prophet Daniel illustrated it in wholesale Christian Bibles, when after praying, repenting for his nation, and fasting for weeks, he received a visit from the archangel Gabriel:
“Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia (10: 12 – 13).”
What did Gabriel explain to Daniel in these and other passages in his prophecies? He explained that wars continually go on in the heavens between God’s angels and Satan’s angels—the later being the kind now hovering over North Korea. And the prayers—or lack thereof–of God’s children can greatly affect the outcomes of those wars in the heavens, as well as those wars on earth. Thus, one must ask: Have churches decided to re-start mid-week prayer meetings yet? Are groups of Christians now praying in their homes, as believers did in World Wars I and II? Understand this: when nuclear bombs start to fall, there will be no more time to organize those prayer meetings. Also, please explain for Daniel, and others watching from the third heaven, what kinds of Christians are those who would rather lose wars and die horrible deaths, than to pray?
Serving in an Army takes training, hard work and discipline—often under harsh and dangerous circumstances. Sure, there are ‘leave’ times–such as when a sailor gets to walk off his ship or submarine for shore leave–but these ‘vacations’ are for very limited and specified times. However, just as in any regular military service, or police forces, leaves and vacations can be cancelled. Ephesians 6, Revelation 19, and many other Scriptures, point out that true Christians are in God’s Army. Thus, God’s people must always be ready to stop being A.W.O.L.—Absent Without Leave–and report for duty.
This blog site is labeled ‘Worlds Collide.’ Those worlds are of both material and spiritual natures. And certainly, they are in many ways unequal. For instance, consider angels. Unlike people, they never need to sleep or rest. And they are always on duty. This identity is the same for God’s good angels and Satan’s evil angels. While it is true that two thirds of these angelic hosts remained true to God, and that only one third of them revolted with Satan, these evil ones have their attendant demons—probably disembodied souls who served Satan during earth’s first destruction between Genesis 1: 1 and 1: 2—who are enslaved to serve them at all times. God’s angels have no such helpers—unless, of course they would include those believers who are always in line with God’s will.
What’s the point? Too many born-again Christians—instead of being attuned to God’s Word and His Will—are A.W.O.L. While the Wars between Good and Evil swirl around them, too often they lose the battle for themselves and for The LORD Jesus. Moreover, Satan, his angels and demons could be stealing everything that these believers think they own.
God’s angels are particularly stirred up when His people start consistently and earnestly praying as often as possible. In the same way, those who serve Satan as their god stir up evil angels to do evil things to God’s people when they pray to him and his devils. To prove their devotion to Satan, those who serve him often walk through fire with him. They ‘worship’ him, either weekly or on special pagan holidays for special “moons” or other signs. Often, they show devotion to Satan when they attend midnight services in basements several levels below ground, or during outdoor orgies in well-hidden woods close by dead water pools so they can wash away the blood of their animal and human sacrifices they have made.
To combat such foolishness, as He promised in His Holy Word, God has made special promises to true believers. If we want to find out what these promises are, or how to bring them to pass, we must get off our A.W.O.L. keisters and get back into the war of resisting Satan—for instance—in the same way that the prophet Daniel did. Believers who serve God and His Son Jesus stir up good angels when they fast, pray, confess their sins as well as the sins of others, and worship God with all their might. You see, Daniel had read in The Holy Word that God had promised to free Judah (or the remaining part of Israel) from slavery after 70 years, and this was a promise that Daniel wanted to bring to pass! Thus, he prayed:
“I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; (9: 1 – 5).
“We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day . . . .
“O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation (9: 18 – 21).
“And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision (9: 21 – 23).”
In the next chapter, the angel explained to Daniel that it took quite an angelic battle for that angel to get through to God: “And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.
”Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia (10: 11 – 13).”
Don’t you see beloved? The devil and his hosts will do everything possible to stop you from fasting and praying. But you must not give up! The promises of God’s Word in Wholesale Christian Bibles belong to you. In these last days, it is high time to cancel all A.W.O.Ls. and get to work full time to fulfill God’s mission! (Don’t forget to hear and see us on Worship Radio Detroit on the internet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.) God Bless you now and forever!
I love to give the gift of a good novel. These kinds of gifts are ones that will give and give again. A gift of a good book can be life-changing and that is what I love about it. Finding a good book to give as a gift is always exciting to me. Since I am becoming a Christian, I have a lot of Christian friends and we love to discover Christian-themed books together.
When I want to give the gift of wisdom that will last a lifetime, I love to find a good book that I can give to a friend or a family member. Even though I have a lot of Christian friends, I also have a lot of friends who are non-Christian as well and they are people who are very important to me. I like to tell them about the Bible and about Christianity whenever I get a chance.
With novels by Rex Stout, I always have something good to read and something that I can get a friend or family member excited about as well. I have been reading these novels for a long time and they are always thrilling and educational reads. Giving the gift of one of these novels is always a good choice and one that will have lifelong benefits.
As a new Christian, I love to find books on Christian topics that help to strengthen my faith and to help me to know how to deal with life situations in the best way possible. There are a lot of great ways to learn about Christianity and about the Christian values and principles. Finding some great Christian books is something that is always very exciting for me.
Whether I am reading Christian fiction or nonfiction, I always learn a lot through some good Christian books. They have really helped me to make the decision to become a follower of Christ and know I can have the freedom to live my life without sin wrapping its chains around me constantly. It is so freeing to be a Christian and know that I have eternal life.
I have recently really gotten into Christian suspense fiction and it has allowed me to discover how Christian principles can be applied in all sorts of situations. I love reading this kind of fiction because I can’t wait to turn the page and see what happens next. Once I start reading, I can’t stop. These Christian books have helped me also to strengthen my faith as I see how Biblical principles would prevail in any story.
Men who exercise tentacles of their powers over multiple nations, elected leaders, and dictators, who think they control sufficient collective human, spiritual and financial forces to stand against, even destroy, those attempting to subvert their plans for world direction—tend to eliminate persons, groups or nations who dare to oppose them. The feeder of their greed is money, or in their cases, unspeakable wealth, control of trillions, not just billions, of currencies world-wide. And sitting atop of this cadre of evil is Satan and all his satanic hosts of fallen angels and demons.
In 2017, members of The Body of Christ in the United States must remain close—even closer than it has ever been before. Historically when a nation’s prayer teams are not unified, all hell breaks loose. Even now acute bitterness from the last election can weaken some prayer warriors who resent those election results. Christians, especially praying Christians, must recognize that earnest prayer, asking God Almighty to protect leaders on all political levels is
crucial intercessory prayer behavior.
I was in the Air Force when John Kennedy was elected President of the United States. Protestant chaplains on my particular base were furious at the thought of having a Catholic president, as they concluded that the Pope would soon rule this country. Likewise, politicians opposing Kennedy, as well as outspoken arms dealers, were furious because Kennedy was against expanding the Vietnam War. In fact, he wanted to withdraw American troops from that poor nation. In such a hateful atmosphere, and with so little agreement between politically-minded prayer warriors, the President was assassinated.
Those years were already riddled with cultural divisions between those confessing to be God’s people. The Rev. Martin Luther King had also been murdered some months before Kennedy. Again, the nation’s prayer forces were at odds with some churches being either for or against racial integration in schools and colleges. Again, the spiritual forces of God’s people were divided. Before Martin was killed, Medgar Evers, Mississippi Civil Rights leader, was also gunned down. Not long after the President’s death, his brother Senator Robert Kennedy, who was running to overthrow Kennedy’s successor, was also killed by an assassin’s bullet. Of course, the forces behind those killings were human earthly rulers and darkness linked with the forces of spiritual darkness.
During those years, Americans lived with a great sense of fear and foreboding. Nonetheless, good people began to cross racial, political and denominational lines and came together to pray for the nation’s healing. During weekday prayer meetings, as well as Sunday morning services, people fell on their knees weeping, crying out for the nation’s vicious culture of divisive hatred to end, for national leaders to be protected, and for Satan’s vile seemingly endless disruption to be chased away from our shores. It took some years of earnest prayer, but eventually God’s people won out. While the nation walked away from Vietnam, bloodied and battered, eventually the it’s hurts of hatred and division were, for the most part, healed.
My point is that when those who are “in Christ” stop praying, or when they pray against one another because of cultural, or political, differences, horrible consequences befall the country. Today, I sense that same dread and foreboding threatening to creep over the land. Will it be forces from beyond our borders bringing such ubiquitous destruction, or will it be the same satanic energies of disruptive violent anger, Americans hating Americans, rising up to take political and cultural vengeance.
Whatever the source, the only answer remains to be prayer–Churches praying for national violence to stop, even
before it gets an even stronger foothold; Parents praying their children away from gangs and violence; Pastors, chaplains and Christians praying together for our politicians to be protected as they work together, crossing party and cultural lines, for the nation’s benefit.
As wholesale Christian Bibles insists: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5: 16).” If earnest Christians do not begin such praying, it may well be that this time the nation will not survive these same old, yet ‘new-found’, battles against evil! And the world’s satanic war mongers, pillars of the devil’s stolen wealth and murderous destruction, will keep their onslaught against our nation and civilization until at last they bring in their true ‘worship’ leaders: Satan and the anti-Christ! It must be repeated: Christians please pray . . . pray in this New Year of 2017 as you have never prayed before.
It has always been interesting for me to read some different types of books that surround religion and especially Christianity on the whole. I am fascinated by the way that this religion has inspired many different types of individuals to write all kinds of books on the subject. It is exciting for me to be able to get a look at these authors based on what they write.
While many of the books that I read are ones that have the Christian religion featured positively within the pages, there are some that take a much less appealing look at it on the whole. I have been focusing recently on reading some of these different types of anti-Christian book choices just because they are books that are very interesting and even well received.
It is great to be able to study this area of literature and to learn more about the way that Christianity is portrayed within different types of books. I am very pleased with these different types of books on the whole as they really are helping me to learn more about the world and more about myself as well. Being able to explore this genre has been really good for me.
As Christians begin Prayer Lists for 2017, it is more than advisable that every believer take a realistic view of the state of our nation in The Eyes of God’s Holy Word. While hundreds of churches and ministries may have achieved recent significant political victories, further attainment cannot be made without realistic looks at the nation’s weakening sinful conditions and possibilities of strong assaults against satanic enemies on spiritual battlegrounds.
All of these present problems cannot be covered in one blog message, but they can at least be outlined: 1) Increasing uses of killer drugs—including heroin; 2) Nation-side Obesity; 3) Male Sports Obsessions; 4) Pet animal Obsessions; 5) Materialism; 6) Dominant dependency on medicines; 7) Economic blindness to national pockets of poverty; 8) Love of Entertainment; 9) Increasing sexual defiance; 10) Denial of 300 years of national identity; 11) Creeping open paganism worship; 12) Falling away from Christianity—not believing in The LORD Jesus Christ or attending Christian churches or cathedrals.
We will cover each of these issues in coming blogs, but here is a hint: Last year, U.S. Deaths from heroin over-doses now outnumbers deaths in this nation from cancer or any other known physical diseases. This record number of killer-deaths is soon followed by “legal” opiates, prescription drugs or hospital ‘medications’. And these record “drug” induced deaths do not necessarily include historical cigarette, cigar or alcohol killers. These new, and usually illegally imported, addiction killers are bringing the nation to its knees. And only the power of God, beginning with earnest Christian repentance and prayer, can stop such nefarious loses.
Much of these national failures begin with the fault of weak, and often unsaved, Christian leadership: men and women who have done everything possible in the last several decades to stifle the power of God in churches, especially the power of continuous weekly prayer meetings. Starting in the 1960s seminaries and pastors decided that group prayer in churches needed to be replaced with what they called “Bible Study.”
As a result church leadership has been vastly supplanted by television “ministries,” so-called Christian singing entertainment, and the rise of semi-Christian and non-Christian cults. Thus, believers seem to know less about the Bible than ever before, and certainly churches have little or no power to heal sicknesses, diseases; unite families; help solve unemployment, etc., or to affect the growing poverty creeping wholesale upon the nation. Or as one verse in wholesale Christian Bibles puts it: “Where there is no vision, the people perish . . . (Proverbs 29: 18). Vision of what, you ask? Vision is the understanding and acceptance of the power of God, of His will, and especially of His way to attain that power as set forth in His Holy Word. God’s people and the churches that bear His Name had best start praying now or the nation will soon be wiped off the face of the earth.

I love to spend time reading books of all kinds. It is always wonderful to be able to head to a library or to a bookstore where I can find new reading material that I can enjoy on a regular basis. It is so easy for me to find all kinds of different types of books that I can read in a variety of genres when I am looking for these different books in the library or at a bookstore.
Most recently, I was looking around online for some books just because there were some really great deals on books that I had seen priced a lot higher at many different places. It was really great to be able to find so many great prices on a range of different types of books that I knew I would be interested in. I spent a good amount of time choosing different ones to read.
One of the books that I bought is a very interesting one that I never really expected to pick up. I have only just begun to read Nero Wolfe – Three for the Chair, but so far it has been a very unexpected read. It is always great for me to find books like these that are ones that are just so interesting on the whole.
Yes, Thanksgiving is a time to Give God thanks for all He has done for us, for our family, and for our nation in the current year. We have planted seed, we have sown tithes, offerings and testimonies, and now it is time to thank Him for the harvest we have survived to bring in this year—survived because, remember, we have also been in battle against the most destructive enemy the world has ever known—the three-fold forces of evil: Satan, the anti (and ‘ante’) Christ, and the false prophet. Yes, all three operate now on earth today!
As we consider this harvest time of blessings, we must also thank God, Our Father, for being alive. Remember, people in many nations around the globe—and people within our own nation–are not alive this year to do so. No matter what our material, financial or physical condition, is we must thank and praise God for life! As The LORD Jesus says: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10: 10).”
So if you did not succeed in everything you wanted to do this year, remember it was Satan and his ilk who stole it from you. If you are a truly born-again believer in Jesus Christ, if you have asked Him into your heart, if you now nurture a relationship with Him, and with God, The Father, through God The Holy Spirit Who lives inside of you to guide you through these shores on earth, endeavoring to equip you for present and eternal service for God Almighty—then you have an enemy, whose name is Satan, the devil, ole ‘sloo’-foot, who fights against you tooth and nail. Oh, you can’t see him, but he is the source of the majority of your trials and failures in 2016.
Thus, this Thanksgiving, thank God for another chance to succeed—to get over the top in the coming year. One demon which books–such as “Practicing The Power of God” and “Born Into Plenty” by John M. Haggard”– identify is Automatic Failure Mechanism. In other words—connected with demons of Generational Curses—the failure mechanism suppresses attempts at business or workplace success, kills dreams and goals of better achievements, and stifles hope in your prayer life. Demons, such as Generational Curses, may have caused your parents, grandparents, etc. to fail over the years—stealing their wealth and ideas so that wicked people can profit from them—and now they are spiritual fattened to steal your future profits and success as well.
So Don’t Let Them Do It. Take authority over these cooperating evil spiritual forces in The Name of Jesus. Look at Our Savior’s promises in such situations: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10: 19).” Now and in the coming year, constantly pray against these and other demons interfering with your success, your health, your home and your happiness. Satan has armies of cooperating demonic forces fighting against the children of God. In this coming year, more than ever before, God’s people—like all Good Soldiers in His Army–must start fighting back!
Finally, if your personal life or habits are not straightened out, Repent! And seek God’s help to get your circumstances cleansed of sin and evil. Stop cooperating with these additional demons tempting you into these situations as well. Remember, God is not a fool: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Galatians 6: 7.” Mocked means to make fun of, as if the one mocked is a clown or a fool. Through God, The Holy Spirit, Who has never left the earth, The Father has access to infinite knowledge. As Isaiah points out in wholesale Christian Bibles: “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (11: 2).”
So now and in the coming year, let us all stop taking God’s mercy for granted. Let us always walk in love—including forgiveness–and repentance. As The LORD Jesus teaches: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
“And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses (Matthew 6: 9 – 15).”
God Bless you all Now and Forever. Remember, Satan is furious that true Christians are born again, that God’s loves and lives in them, and that Almighty God is furious with him, and that he will never see the insides of heaven again. The more we fight against Satan’s rage, the more successful we will be now in life and forever in all eternity!
There are some great books out there that help me to learn a lot about society and the events that have occurred in the past or may occur in the present. I love to read both nonfiction books and fiction books that have some Biblical roots or that are spiritual in some way. These kinds of books are the most interesting for me to read.
Fiction books are books I have always loved to read and I am really excited to read the next book that I have in mind. I love the way that you can just let your imagination run wild with fiction books and you can dive into a world that is unique and that faces some tough situations. There is a particular book I heard about from my friends that I have been really interested in lately.
The book that I have been really excited to read is The Fourth Horseman. This book is a fiction book about the Black Plague and the way it can spread from animals to humans. The book has some Biblical roots, as plagues are mentioned in the Bible, in Revelation, by a horseman. Stories that include medical aspects have always been interesting to me, as I have always been terrified of a plague and wondered if maybe one even wiped out the dinosaurs.
