Same Sex Marriage is not a Right.

I hope this got your attention.  After all a lot of so called Christians today are defending the right of same sex couples to get married.  There is even a church that has gone as far as to refuse all weddings until such a point where they can perform same sex marriages as well as hetero sexual ones. 

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments as to whether or not they should rule on the constitutionality of laws such as DOMA, and California's Proposition 8.  Both cases are clearly areas in which the people ruled against same sex marriage and then government ruled against the acts.  With DOMA, Obama has chosen not to defend the law.  A violation of his oath, the picking and choosing of laws in which to enforce.  In Proposition 8, the Federal courts struck down the proposition after it was passed by a majority of people. 

My opinion on this is that Marriage was an institution created by God.  It was for creating children and for propogating the race.  It was not so two people could get benefits for the other.   Marriage is a serious thing.  The idea that you are going to stay with that person until death is a hard thing for many to swallow.  When one gets married, there is intimecy which many times leads to children.  Those children need to be raised and that requires a team effort.  Traditionally, the man goes out and earns a living, job, business, hunting etc, while the woman stays home keeps the house and raises the children.  The institution was first attacked by Woman's lib, when the woman wanted to go and work next to men.  Can a woman do a better job then a man a certain jobs.  Absolutely, she can.  Many of the best managers I know are woman.  That is why they were the ones several generations ago managing the house.  A man can do one thing and do it better then a woman.  A woman can perform many task well at the same time. Most who cook at home are woman but the best chef's in the world are men.  Just a fact.

I am not sure where the idea of granting a license first came about.  You get a room of six single men and six single woman together. It won't be long, if they are normal before they are pairing off.  In ancient times, they just start a family and go from there.  Eventually elaborate ceremonies were developed around the pairing off.  The church got involved when they decided that God needed to enforce the vows they make to each other.  Roman priest were brought in and now the institution belonged to the church.  Eventually the state wanted their piece of the pie and a marriage license was invented.  Employers wanted to give workers benefits but since the wife didn't work and was at home with the children, the employer was generous and extended those benefits to the family at home that was not able to work yet.   Now with same sex marriage, those benefits would extend to same sex partners.

Here is the crux.  when there are no children at home, both can get a job.  Same sex couples generally make more money then hetero sexual couples.  Therefore both can get benefits from their individual jobs. So why are they asking for the right to marry?  I think the plot is more sinister then that.  Like I said before it is an attack on Marriage.  It is an attack on family.  These attacks have been going on now for a long time.  First it was the woman's rights.  Then it was Abortion.  Where we are killing off the next generation.  Now it is homosexual marriage.  We have always had wars that decimated the family.  We are not looking at worse. 

Paul, in 2 Timothy3:1  says that in the last days, perilous times will come.  I think to day is very perilous.  He has a long list of sins that One of with is without natural affection.  Today's christian church is switching to pro homosexual agenda.  I want to know who is not reading their Bible but merely following the whims of man.  With the outrage in the social media, I can definitely say this scripture is being fulfilled.  God help this country.  Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because God could not find 10 righteous people.  Since Lot was not pure himself, Amman and Moab, who should have been friends with Israel became a thorn in the flesh. Read the story of the Angel of the Lord's visit to Sodom.  Ask yourself if that is not how today's homosexual acts.  Then ask yourself.  Are we headed to the same destruction in America.

Bashar Al Assad is Dead

Bashar Al Assad with King Juan Carlos and Prince Filipe of Spain.
Reports are coming out of Damascus that Bashar Al Assad has died.  Israeli News Agency is reporting that they have confirmed that he was shot at point blank range by a body guard on Saturday night.   He was rushed to a Damascus hospital and he died on the operating table.

This would be big news.  Bashar Al Assad is one of the leading candidates for Antichrist.  He also died two days before Passover.  Interesting coincident.  Revelation 13:3 says that one of his heads was wounded unto death and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the Beast.  The thing to watch for now is his rising from the dead. 

If he stays dead.  What are we looking at?  This is one more king to fall for the Arab Spring.  With Lybia, Egypt and now Syria.  That would make three kings that have fallen.  So you now have to look at who is behind the rebels to find out who is the AC.  If you look at it like that.  Alex Jones contends that it is the US CIA that created Al Kaida.  If the US created, and is backing it then you have to say Obama is the Beast.  We'll he hasn't taken his bullet in the head yet.  He has not been revealed as the AC.

Obama did make a trip to Israel and Jordan last week.  Visiting with Netinyahu, Abbas and King Abdula.  Reports are and they are unconfirmed, that Obama ordered the hit on Assad while there.  Anyway, the reason for the visit was to create the two state solution and promote peace and security.  1 Thes 5:3 warns us about anyone saying peace and safety.  Watch out for sudden destruction.  I can promise you sudden destruction this week somewhere. 

Keep watching the skies.  We have a lot of asteroid activity.  The sun has a coronal hole facing the earth.  That creates an earthquake watch.  All the Big ones of late have happened when a coronal hole faced the earth. 

We live in interesting days.  Keep looking up.  Your redemption is drawing nigh.  Get right with God today.  We might not have a tomorrow.

New Papa in Rome

Ok, We are protestant and it is all about the pretrib rapture but let's give a big welcome to Pope Francis.  Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Buenos Aires Argentina.  So what does this mean and is it prophetic? 

As you know I have been following the Prophecy of the Popes by St Malarchy supposedly from the 1100's brought to light in the 1500s.  Every Pope since that time has seemed to follow the prophecy.  On first blush, this man does not follow the pattern.  The prophecy says that he will be Peter the Roman who leads his flock through great tribulation and the dreadful judge will judge his people then the end will come.

Does he fit Peter the Roman.  Well let's look.  He is from Argentina and Peter is nowhere in any of his names, not even the name he took as Pope.  So a lot of people are saying, there you have it prophecy broken throw it out.  We're done.  Are we?

Looking at his biography in Wikipedia it says he was born in Argentina from Italian immigrants.  He was born in on December 17, 1936.  So his parents moved probably after World War I.  Don't have that story yet.  This was a period where a lot of Italians were coming to America.  But did his parents come from Rome? Good question.  We'll have to wait for the Biography to find out. 

The other question is why did Malachy call the final pope Peter the Roman?  Is that the correct way to translate Petrus Romanus?  Should it be instead the Rock of Rome. Is this the man that will stand firm as Rome Burns?  We will have to wait and see on history.  Those who are writing off the prophecy too fast are doing so at their peril.  It could still come true.  If he leaves office and nothing happens then we could be looking at something else.  The last Pope is not numbered so could there be a parenthesis before the last Pope?  This adds to the immanency of the rapture.  We don't know the day or hour.  God has postponed it before.  The man of sin won't be revealed until he that hindereth is taken away. 

Here is another aspect which I saw immediately.  He is a Jesuit.  The Jesuits now have the chaplaincy of the House of Representatives so they are gaining in power.   The Jesuits were the primary instigators of the inquisition.  They were also feared by many in Europe for being assassins.  Of course speculation is that the Jesuits were behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.  Read Charles Chiniquy's 50 Yeas in the Church of Rome for his accusations on that.   Anyway, they have long held their leader in the Vatican as the Black Pope.  Wearing black robes, he has manipulated the White Pope in many of his decisions. 

Much to watch.  The Jury is still out.  We'll get back on this as we learn more.

Pope Resigns what is next?

Pope Benedict XVI has resigned due to failing health.  He will step down on February 28.  This leads to some interesting assumptions.  Who will replace him?  Tom Horn wrote a book some time ago called Petrus Romanus.  It is based on a prophecy from the middle ages by a Catholic preist call Saint Malachi.  Upon a visit to Rome, he was said to have had a vision of the line of Popes.  While we cannot line this prophecy as an addendum to the scriptures you carry with you to church, just like the book of Enoch and Macabees, it does make for a good read.

So far the Popes have stood up to the vague predicitons of their reign.  John Paul the first was said to be of the Moon and he ruled for exactly one lunar cycle.   John Paul II was of the labor of the sun and was the first Pope to travel around the world.  He was born on a solar eclipse and was buried during one.

The final Pope has this prediction:

In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.

Does this line up with scripture?  Revelation 17 predicts a city with seven mountains will be destroyed.  He calls it Mystery Babylon.  It is a harlot, persecuting the saints and very wealthy.  While there is much debate on who the Babylon of this passage and the other passages, It lines up with the idea of Rome being that city.  There is the thought of two Babylons where the second of Revelation 18 is a different city.   Either the literal Babylon in Iraq or possibly New York City.

Let's clear up a few things.  This prediction does not say that the final Pope will be antichrist.  It does not say that the final Pope will be evil.  It does not say anything about his character or what he is going to do.  It just says that he will be the one that leads a sheeplike people through very turbulent times before the end.  The Bible does say that if they don't repent Jesus will send the church of Thyatyra through great tribulation while he keeps the Philadelphia church from the time of testing that comes upon the whole world.

One other thing that it does not predict is when or how far into his reign all this will start.  It does not say that it is immediate.  It does say that it will happen during his reign as Pope.  "Peter the Roman" is a young man, then we could still have a few years.  I somehow don't think so.  The idea that Benedict is retiring now which hasn't happened since the middle ages, says that something is ready to break.

One phrase no one is looking at in the prophecy is the formidable Judge will judge his people.  The Bible speaks of Judgment coming on the world and each individual standing before Jesus to answer for his deeds.  Judgement day is closer then you think.  You can stand before the bema and receive a reward for what you did in Christ or stand before the great white throne and receive the penalty for your sins.  The choice is yours.  Ask for Jesus' forgiveness today so you can stand before the Bema

Gun Ban Debate

The raging gun debate right now in America down right scares me.  So let me be perfectly clear.  My Father comes from a long line of hunters who in many cases packed their own shot gun shells.  So why do we need guns in America?  Why don't we need guns in America.  On the why don't we need guns.  First they are a dangerous weapon.  In the wrong hands, serious injury and death can occur.  Criminals with guns can cause a lot of damage  Proper precautions must be made when you own guns that small children, and clumsy people do not accidentally shoot off one.  Also, you must make sure that people who are on psychotropic drugs do not get a hand on your weapons.  For this to happen you need to make sure your guns are put away in a location that is hard for the average person to get to and you can get to very quickly.  A locked gun cabinet with an easy for you to get to key is best. 

Reasons to have guns is long.  The first reason why we ever buy a gun is that someone invited us to go hunting.  Today, with food readily available, hunting is a sport not a necessity.  I don't doubt that it may become a necessity once again in this country.  Once you have a gun, you can find many uses.  Dealing with that rabid skunk that keeps wandering around your house.  Dealing with a predator such as a cougar or a bear.  Interesting to note that with the fourth seal of Revelation 6, that wild animals will be killing humans.  Of course the other one is the defending of your house from burglars.  Much has been documented lately about how that works.  I remember a criminal lose in my neighborhood and my father sat up all night with his shotgun at the ready. 

The one use of a gun which none of us really wants to do is defend ourselves against the government.  This would be either corrupt local law enforcement or national law enforcement or military.  We know from certain cases that it can be a losing battle.   Look at Waco.  Whether you agree or disagree with David Koresh and his theology, he had stock piled weapons, and the ATF felt it had to deal with the threat.  They used tanks to come against the compound.  Many innocent women and children died in that massacre.  So in dealing with the government and you are out manned and out gunned, you will have to make the decision to be a marter or give up peacefully.   Hopefully, you will be allowed to.  In German occupied countries, many were not allowed to.  They were executed.

So why do you need a semi-automatic?  Answer, because the government has tanks.  The second amendment was so that every man had a weapon and could join a militia at a moments notice and defend their homes from any enemy, foreign or domestic.  With what is going on right now along our southern border, it is not a good time to talk about disarming Americans.  These people need to be able to defend their homes against invaders from Mexico.  So I would say the Citizens need to have available,  semi-automatic weapons, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and even anti-aircraft guns.  We haven't felt like we needed such weaponry because we haven't felt threatened by an enemy.  But now we do.  The questions always comes up about atomic weapons.  On that one I would say no.  It does too much collateral damage.  The constitutional question is an interesting one.

Should foreigners be allowed to have guns in America?  They are not American citizens and do not have constitutional protection and they should be disarmed.   That includes any foreign troops that are in America. Last hing we need is a foreigner causing the problems.  

The objection comes up that if we really have an invasion, you can just call 911 and let the authorities handle the situation.  Sounds good on paper, but local law enforcement has been spread thin lately with budget cuts.  Most of the time that they arrive at a scene, all they can do is write the report.  If you have the gun, you can deal with the situation until law enforcement arrives.  Nothing like being able to do CPR yourself.  You can save a life while the ambulance is on the way.

What is going to happen if the current government bans guns?  First, I don't think they will go that far.  I think they will first register guns.  Later they will come for them.  But if they do ban  guns and force law enforcement to confiscate them, here is what you are going to see.  Most of America will turn them in and take the small amount of money that will be offered for them.  You will see crime rate rise.  There will be pockets of protesters that will not turn in their guns.  You will see firefights between government authorities and these resistance groups.  What we pray is that the law enforcement stand down.  After all it is an unlawful order to get the weapons.  Only if the Second Amendment is repealed will it be lawful.  There will be casualties on both sides and many will be innocent.  This will not be a civil Civil war like the first one was.  The weapons are much more powerful today then in 1861.  You may see Air Force or even Navy called into action which would really make things difficult.  In either case it will not be pretty.  We could even see foreign troops used to enforce the law.  They will not stand down.  They have not sworn an allegiance to defend the constitution. 

Is there a Biblical precedence for this happening?  Yes. I Samuel 13:19 says, "Now there was no smith found throughout all of the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears."  What was the result of that?  The ended up taking farm equipment such as pitchforks and axes down to the smiths in Philistia and had them sharped and used them in the day of battle.  

I know Alex Jones made a fool of himself on CNN by not discussing the issue civilly.  I think he did the wrong thing by giving Peirs Morgan the time of day.  He did get his point across though.  Don't come for the guns, it will be a big mistake.  Peirs Morgan is not a person that should be talking. As a British Subject, he is not one that should join the debate.  That is subversion.   Russia Today(RT) and Chinese TV (CCTV) need to stay out of it too.  This is a debate between citizens.  Anyone who is from outside the US that joins the debate only wants a disarmed populace when they invade.  It was the Japanese Admiral Yamamoto that said, "I dare not invade the American mainland, there would be rifle behind every blade of grass."

It was the Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Tse Tung that said, "Power comes from the barrel of a gun."  The question is, if the US Government is buying up all the ammunition, and they are trying to take away our guns, what are they planning?  Time will only tell.  For right now If you own a gun hold on to it.  The time may be coming where you may need it.
