O, Jerusalem!

Well, President Trump finally did what many previous administrations had said they would do – recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which it has been for thousands of years. King David, who lived a thousand years before the Christian era, had his capital at Jerusalem, and his son Solomon built the first Temple there in 832 B.C. Trump is carrying out the will of the 104th Congress which passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 that called for the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

This was thousands of years before most of the denouncing members of the United Nations were even nations! Of course, the UN has opposed the United States at every turn since its foundation, and has similarly been against the Jews. The UN mistakenly holds that Jerusalem’s “final status” must be decided in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. No, it won’t. God has the final word. Jerusalem was, is, and always will be the capital of Israel.

The president has “threatened to cut off funding” to the UN. Let’s hope it happens, as we should have never been made to send our taxes to that anti-Christian, socialist, one-world organization in the first place. The land for its headquarters in New York City, as you likely know, was donated by David Rockefeller, a globalist to the core.

A look at history is interesting here. During the time of Christ’s life on earth Rome was in charge of that area of the world and was divided into a Latin western section and a Greek eastern one which became the Byzantine Empire. Constantine reorganized the empire, made Constantinople (originally Byzantium) the new capital, and legalized Christianity.

The Byzantines hung around for a thousand years before falling to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, and the name of the capital was changed to Istanbul. This Ottoman Empire peaked under Suleiman the Magnificent, and the area was conquered by the Allied forces in World War I and divided between the U.K and the French.

In 1948 Jordan attacked and occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem, with the blessing of the U.K. The real estate was taken back by Israel in the Six Day War in 1967, and the event is celebrated annually on Jerusalem Day (this May was the 50th anniversary, and I had the pleasure of being present in Jerusalem for it).

It should be noted here that Jesus ascended from this earth from Jerusalem, at the Mount of Olives, and will return to the very same place, at which time the mountain will be split from east to west, creating a new valley. He will then be the Ruler of the entire planet with His headquarters at Jerusalem. Jesus has always had strong opposition from the “powers that be”, and it is no different today. Every single adversary will, however, bow the knee and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, that is guaranteed.

Is Israel still special to God? Just read Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and see what is yet to happen: Israel will be surrounded by 10 nations that plan to “take a spoil”, but will be opposed by God himself and they won’t even make it down out of the mountains. It will take 7 months to bury the dead, and 7 years to burn up their weapons! The enemy will face earthquakes, giant hailstones, brimstone (sulfur)  and blood, and the enemies will fight against each other. The world will know that God did it. You want to be on the winning side!

Bombing Run

My Uncle Tom Scott grew up at the “Old Home Place”, a farm just west of the Missouri/Kansas line near Eve, Missouri. It was close to the Thornhill Coal Mine west of Deerfield, which his father, my Grandpa Scott, operated.

During WWII Tom was in the U.S. Army Air Corps, and was navigator for the B-24 “Short Fat and 4-F”, flying out of Pantanella Air Base, Italy. There were two long parallel runways stretching from East to West, covered with PSP (perforated steel planking) and his 779 Squadron of the 464th Bomb Group resided in the northeast quadrant of the base. They first lived in tents and then later in small buildings made of blocks of carved local stone with a canvas roof.

Let’s imagine a typical bombing mission. Uncle Tom would rise around 5 am and have a quick breakfast before heading to the ready room to gaze at a huge map and find out what was to be the target of the day. He and the other 9 members of his heavy bomber crew would ride in Jeeps out to their plane, which had been fueled, armed with bombs and .50 cal ammo by the ground crew, which had often worked all night.

Being the navigator, Tom would have climbed up through the bomb bay doors and squeezed sideways on the one-foot wide beam that led forward between the racks of bombs to the narrow tunnel below the pilot and co-pilot to his table just behind the nose-gunner. From his seat he could keep a close watch on the two 1,200 H.P. engines on either side.

It was 1944, and after takeoff the B-24 had to form up with the other planes for their mission. Tom had calculated the direction for them to fly across the Adriatic Sea to the IP, the Initial Point, from which he would then guide the flight to the target. It was risky business, as they often ran into flak, exploding fiery bombs of metal fragments sent up from the ground, which would tear through planes and crew. Then there were the enemy fighters that would try their best to shoot them out of the sky. They may have been bombing an oil refinery, or an aircraft factory, or a ball-bearing factory, or a number of other types of targets that were important for keeping the Nazi war effort going.

It was very noisy on board the plane, and in many places it was windy, as the machine guns required openings for firing out. The crew members’ fleece-lined leather flight suits were electrically heated to help deal with the minus 30 degree temperature at altitudes above 20,000 feet. They would all be breathing pure oxygen.

Uncle Tom and his crew members survived 29 such missions. On one occasion while on a run to Vienna, one of the bomber’s 4 engines caught on fire and the pilot ordered everyone to bail out. Tom finally located his parachute under some maps and jumped. When his chute opened, both of his boots flew off! He landed in Mussolini’s private game reserve and broke an ankle.

That was bad enough, but a man approached him with a pistol pointed at him, and Tom thought it was all  over. The fellow turned out to be a partisan, however,  and led Tom on a donkey to a local village. Tom said he had his parachute draped over his shoulder and reckoned that he looked like Jesus entering Jerusalem! He later got back to base, healed, and flew again.

On another flight the plane’s hydraulic system was damaged, and they needed to land as soon as possible. Tom led them to the emergency runway on the Isle of Vis, off the coast of Yugoslavia. The runway was short and was used by all planes in the area for emergency landings. Planes landed from both directions, and sometimes there were collisions in the middle. Tom said they came in too high and fast, and had make a go around, landing successfully the second time. (I read of another plane that had to make the same re-try, but it ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea before it could make it  around.)

After the war ended, Uncle Tom went to pilot school in California and learned to fly the huge B-29 Superfortress. He then piloted the weather version, the B-50, out of Japan into typhoons and also up along the coast of Russia to monitor air samples for radiation, which would indicate atomic bomb testing.

My love of flying had its origin in the exploits of my Uncle Tom, whom I consider a true hero. I was honored to speak a eulogy at his funeral, and I informed the audience about what a typical mission might have been like.

A Man is Known by His Enemies

Jerusalem is in the news now, with demonstrations over our President’s official recognition of that city as Israel’s capitol.  The U.S. and Israeli flags are being burned, and Trump vilified for finally doing what many past presidents promised, but never did.

The Muslim reaction is expected, as the “Palestinians” are seeking to have east Jerusalem as the capitol of their own state. Little do they realize that the King of Kings, Christ Jesus himself, will be returning and ruling over, not only Israel, but the entire world from Jerusalem! He will  touch down on the Mount of Olives, the same location from which He ascended. That’s right, Jerusalem will be the capitol of the world.

When Jesus initiates that thousand-year period of peace on the earth it will be too late to choose Him as your Savior, the Church Age will have ended. Today is the day of salvation.

Mohammed had the opportunity to be saved and go to Heaven. The Bible had been completed some 300 years before he read it, but he failed to see Jesus for who He really is. He rejected Jesus as the Son of God. (The Qu’ran repeatedly states that “god has no son”)  He did not believe that Jesus was crucified. He did not believe that Jesus rose from the dead. He did not believe that Jesus is the one and only way to be reconciled to God  (the real God) and be born again. No, as far as we know, Mohammed died in his sins, unforgiven.

What a different world we would live in had Mohammed believed the Bible! Yes, many atrocities have been carried out in the name of Christianity, but none of them were Christian acts. Christ transforms lives to ones displaying love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, goodness, patience, long-suffering, and self-control.

Virtually every one of the violent acts of terrorism in the world today is carried out by Muslims. Mohammed erroneously believed that the promise from God came through Ishmail, l Abraham’s son thorough Hagar (because he and Sarah were too impatient) rather than through Isaac as it actually happened. You can read about this in  Galatians 4:21-31. The one born into slavery (Ishmail) has persecuted the one born into freedom (Isaac) ever since. (God did save Ishmail’s life and blessed him, however)

It is interesting that so many black men in prisons (themselves slaves, if you will) choose Islam when their ancestors were enslaved by Muslims! That’s a historical fact. And slavery is a feature of Islam today.

It’s not only the Palestinians who are enemies of President Trump. It’s everyone who has tried to crush him over the past year. It’s the establishment, the Deep State, the Marxists, the socialists, the communists, the globalists – all who are against good old American nationalism. You know that Trump  is doing a lot of things right when he is opposed by such evil. Did you realize that he has had over 4,000 pedophiles arrested so far? There will much more exposure of corruption, including satanic rituals and child sex trafficking  ahead when the elites cannot hide it any more. Will there ever be justice for the crooked elements of the FBI, the DOJ, the IRS, and others? It remains to be seen.

Hey, what about the Department of Defense, which used to be labeled more accurately as the War Department? (We could nail it with the title, “Department of Vast Profits from the Initiation of Wars) Blessed are the Peacemakers, not the warmongers! But making peace is not profitable – wars are. The defense industry has much blood on its hands. I say bring the troops home!

Jesus had an abundance of enemies. They saw their own authority and power threatened, just as their descendants see Trump as a major threat today. Just outside of Nazareth they tried to throw Jesus over a cliff, but it wasn’t time for Him to die yet. We stood on that very cliff this past May, and it looks out over the Valley of Armageddon (the photo you see when you open this web site), a very impressive sight! The great final battle is coming soon, and you want to be on the winning side!

Are you a hater? You should be, but only if you hate evil, which is the beginning of wisdom, according to the Bible. But, don’t spend your time dwelling on the evil and corruption all around us. It’s better for your health to think about things that are good, beautiful, etc. There is so much beauty around us – think about that!

To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas.”     –   G. Brock Chisolm  co-founder, World Federation of Mental Health

As I grew up here in the USA I was under the illusion that our government was doing what was best for us most of the time, and when I got old enough to vote I believed that our votes really counted. With the passage of time it became apparent that it didn’t matter much which of the two major political parties was “in power”; things went on about the same, and the “sameness” was showing signs of being controlled and planned by a greater power.

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”  – David Rockefeller from “Memoirs” p 405

The greater power now has been identified, and goes by an assortment of names, such as “the deep state“, “the establishment“, “the elites“, “the globalists“. We know that there is a cabal of international corporatists who do make the major decisions, and who have no allegiance to any country. They are, indeed, globalists in the sense that they plan a one-world government controlled by themselves from a central location, perhaps Brussels, and it is anti-Christian. 

“The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.”   –   Maximillien Robespierre

Do you remember George H.W. Bush constantly beaming over the “new world order”? This is nothing new; groups of people have been striving for world domination for literally thousands of years. Have you heard of the Tower of Babel? Those folks planned to build a huge tower and have a common language for everyone – they would be unstoppable!

National Socialism will use its own revolution for the establishing of a new world order!”  – Adolph Hitler

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”  – Thomas Jefferson

And, more recently,  “The Second Amendment is not to protect your right to shoot at deer. It’s to protect your right to shoot at government that has become tyrannical.”             –   Andrew Nepolitano

The world has seen many empires come and go. We had the Babylonians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the British, the Nazis, and others, including, yes, the American empire. There are many features of the Roman empire that led to its decline, and which are shared by our own empire today. One of these is far-flung military interventions (these are extremely costly, but extremely rewarding to the elite bankers who finance them).

The issue, which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later, is the people versus the banks.”  –  Lord Acton

Another prominent one, and the feature that stands out as the most important one for ending our own empire, is the devaluation of our currency. Yes, the dollar is on its last legs, and very close to being replaced – not by anything the U.S. has planned, but by the International Monetary Fund, or IMF, which has SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights) ready to go, a “basket of currencies”, with a major component undoubtedly being the Chinese Yuan which will likely be linked to gold.

The U.S. dollar was at one time “as good as gold” because it was backed by gold. This ended in 1971 when President Nixon “temporarily” severed its ties to gold, and the world’s currencies have “floated” ever since. The dollar has lost 97% of its value since the globalists traitors were given control of our nation in 1913.  The only good thing about it is that it is getting more difficult to bribe folks with increasingly worthless money.

“Everything the state says is a lie, and everything it has it has stolen.”  – Friedrich Nietzsche

You are surely aware that our government can rarely  be trusted. It lies at every turn. It lied about JFK’s assassination. It lied about Vince Foster’s assassination. It lied about the cause of the Viet Nam war. It lied about the Oklahoma City bombing. It lied about the attacks on 9/11. It lied about the assassinations of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi. It lies about the rate of inflation and the cost of living.  It lies about the unemployment figures. It lies about being concerned over the debt. It lies about the rampant fraud in elections.

Our beautiful country has lost its foundation. What was known to be solid and true has been rejected. What was known to be evil and detestable is now given preferential treatment. The word of God, the Bible, which can always be trusted, says that we are not struggling against flesh and blood, but against “principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12) And there is lots of wickedness in high places!

Government programs didn’t arise because the people demanded them or because the free market was unable to  provide needed services. They arose because the politicians found them to be a convenient way to buy votes with other people’s money, a convenient way to enlarge their own power, a convenient way to reward their political cronies, and a convenient way to keep people dependent on government.” -Harry Browne

You know who is in control when you know what you are not allowed to criticize. In Canada you may not criticize Islam. In Australia, if you are a health worker and question vaccines, you may be imprisoned for 10 years. Wealth equals control. Look at TV ads to see who has the money these days. The most frequent ads are for attorneys, casinos, and pharmaceutical companies.

God is currently judging this wickedness, especially  in Washington, D.C. He is using Donald Trump to accomplish this, though sometimes it seems that the president is siding too much with the swamp creatures. Trump is trying to restore the Republic that the past several administrations have trashed. He has overseen the arrest of over 4,000 pedophiles so far, with many more to come.The connection with Satanic rituals, torture, and death has yet to be publicized. The mainstream press won’t be covering this, because it is owned by the same  anti-Christian globalists who have been running (ruining) the country.

Since 1997, 264 cases of sexual crimes in Congress have been settled for over $17 million. We don’t know their names because Congress unanimously passed a bill in 1995 that made all of them exempt from being named publicly for their crimes. (signed by Bill Clinton) Trump is also trying to end supplying millions of dollars per year to the Palestinian Liberation Authority  which funds terrorism against Jews and Christians.

Are you as tired as I am of the Democrats’ constant bashing of the president, and their opposition to anything he is trying to do? Why is there yet one more effort to implicate Trump in some sort of collusion with the Russians when there is so much hard evidence of the Clintons’ collusion with Russia. (the treasonous granting of control of 20% of our uranium to Russia, and Bill’s being given half a million dollars for a single speech there). How would it play out if Trump had been paid for a Russian speech?

If people learn to think they can’t be good Socialists.”  –  John Dewey

You should know that we do not really have two parties in this nation, we have two public faces of the same corrupt political coin. The leadership of the Republicans is just as evil as the socialist/Marxist/communist Democratic party. The “right” of women to have their babies murdered is a Democrat plank, and the deaths of millions of babies is no different than the offering up of babies to the heathen gods Baal or Molech in the past. The Communist Party USA stopped fielding political candidates years ago, because the Democrat Party had adopted all of its goals.

It has been said that all members of congress who have been in office for at least 10 years need to be replaced, as they have been so corrupted. It is the natural course of governments to grow bigger and to exercise power to increase their own wealth and control.  Ultimately, God is in control and eventually everyone, including every last globalist, will bow the knee and confess that Jesus is Lord. At present, Jesus is no more welcome in Washington, D.C. than He was in Jerusalem, and for the same reasons.

The greatest lie that I know of is that a person can make it to heaven if they live “a good life”.  Have you ever been to a Masonic funeral?  They have a ritual at the end in which one of their members recites the following: “Our brother_______has conducted his life in such a manner as to make himself fit to enter that great Celestial Lodge in the sky.” You Masons need to tear up that bit of heretical deception. No one can live a good enough life to get into heaven. Every one of us is unfit! John 14:6 makes it clear that Jesus is the only way. His finished work on the cross makes us fit!

These are interesting days! Check out Obamacare medical code E978. This covers “Legal Execution” and includes “beheading, decapitations (by guillotine)”, implemented by the World Health Organization (UN).   Look it up!

Even though our country has lost its way, each of us can be safely anchored in Christ. He is our Ark of safety, and will hide us under His wings. You don’t want to be out there in stormy waters headed toward the rocks! “Hope and change” are found in Jesus.

Holy Land Highlights

A trip to Israel will change your life! This past May my wife Valo and I were blessed to make the trip with our son Scott, his wife Nancy and their boys Sam and Ben, along with  Nancy’s dad John Hannah, professor of Old Testament History at Dallas Theological Seminary, and our friend Robbie Vokoun.

After a long flight, we landed at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, and once through customs, we boarded a Mercedes bus for Be’er Sheba in the Negev desert, accompanied by the best tour guide in Israel.  It was amazing to be standing beside Abraham’s well that he quarreled over with Abimelech, and which was 260 feet deep! We were surrounded by camels, and gazed southward into the desert into which Ishmail and Hagar were sent.

We traveled to the Dead Sea where we floated without effort – it was impossible to sink! High above that we visited Massada where Herod built one of his palaces. The Roman siege wall is still there!

We toured Qumran, home of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and stopped at En Gedi, where David was chased by King Saul.

We journeyed up to the Sea of Galilee, took a boat ride across to see a restored first century fishing boat. We toured the gorgeous Mount of Beatitudes, saw where the 5,000 were fed, and saw where Peter was restored. We  visited Jesus’ home town of Capernaum where we saw the remains of Peter’s house and a synagogue where Jesus preached. We went to Chorazin and walked on pavement where Jesus walked and healed people, and to Bethsaida, home of some  disciples who were fishermen by trade.

At the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee we stopped at the area where the Gadarene demoniac lived, and saw the cliffs where the possessed pigs ran down into the water. Many of us, including Valo and me,  were later baptized in the Jordan River south of the Sea of Galilee.

We visited Bethlehem where Jesus was born, and Nazareth where he grew up, both of which are large cities today. Just west of Nazareth we ascended Mount Precipice where a crowd tried to push Jesus over the edge, and which looks out over the vast Valley of Armageddon, site of that great final battle to come.

In that area we stopped at Megiddo, site of a chief city of the day, and we went to Gideon’s spring, and were able to kneel down as his soldiers did and lap water, though we did not actually drink it. It was a site of great beauty.

We saw Mt. Gilboa where King Saul and son Jonathan were killed, and we stopped at Bet She’an, the old Roman city where their bodies were hung on the wall. We visited the Valley of Elah where David slew Goliath, and  I even picked up fives stones from the same brook where David did.

We went to the Mediterranean coast to Cesarea Phillipi Maritime where Herod had a palace, swimming pool, chariot race track and other remains, including the very amphitheater where Paul made his defense to King Agrippa.

We also went to the other Cesarea Phillipi, previously known as Panias where the false god Pan was worshiped,  at the foot of Mount Hermon. Sacrifices were carried out at the “Gates of Hell“, a huge cavern. Babies were tossed down into the chasm and it was determined if the sacrifice was accepted by Pan by whether or not  blood was seen in the spring flowing out below.

We stopped up on Mount Carmel where Elijah drove the 400 prophets of Baal down and had them killed. It was the place where the prophet outran Ahab in his chariot! We traveled up to Tel Dan, a northern worship center, and saw the location for one of Jeroboam’s golden calves, along with an arch that was built in the time of Abraham.

We stayed in Jerusalem at the same time as President Trump, and prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. We were thrilled to be there for Jerusalem Day, especially since it was the 50th anniversary of the liberation of that city in 1967 – lots of singing, dancing, and flag-waving in the streets! We toured the Israel Museum there as well as the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.  (all who enter the military, young women for 2 years and men for 3, visit the Yad Vashem and are inducted at the Western wall)

We visited the Temple Mount, walked around the Dome of the Rock, and stopped at the Western Wall, encountering several gaily-celebrated bar mitzvahs. We visited the Upper Room, the house of the high priest Caiphas, the dungeon below where Jesus spent His last night on earth before the crucifixion, and the Antonia Fortress where He was tried before Pilate. We stopped at the Pool of Bethesda and the Pool of Siloam, and visited the site of King David’s palace, from which he gazed down on Bathsheba (she was no where in sight).

We stopped at Golgotha, the “Place of the Skull”, which has a busy bus station just below it, and then the Garden Tomb where Jesus’ body was placed (it was empty!) About half way between these two sites is the location of the crucifixion, below which, in a chamber,  is the Ark of the Covenant found by Ron Wyatt, though sadly we did not know this until we had left the country!

There were many other places that we visited, but these come to mind quickly. It was a place where Bible history comes to life, and Bible reading prompts  many pleasant memories.
