FEATURED ARTICLE

Red Storm - By Matt Ward http://www.raptureready.com/soap2/ward31.html


Three weeks ago President Vladimir Putin contacted Israel's Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and made an offer he believed couldn't be
refused. Putin offered to guarantee the safety of Israel's newly discovered
Leviathan gas fields using the full might of the Russian military. Netanyahu
politely declined.
The very next week on the direct orders of Vladimir Putin fighter jets, tanks,
sophisticated battlefield communications equipment and Special Forces
began landing in Syria. It has become an open secret that many thousands
of elite marines will follow shortly after.
After just one week the widely held belief is that Russian forces are already
engaged in real combat operations in Syria, carving out a safe zone from
which they can operate. Russian troops have already engaged in active
combat is an assumed reality because Russian R-166-0.5 (ultra) highfrequency signals (HF/VHF) vehicles were spotted on Syria's Highway 4
just a few days ago. This highway links Homs and Aleppo.
These vehicles, called "mobile war rooms" by Western armies, were
accompanied by BTR-82 troop carriers transporting Russian marines.
These mobile communication centers provide up
to the minute
communication relays to troops engaged in live combat operations up to
1000 kilometers away. They are a crucial part of Russia's war machine,
strongly indicating Russia is already actively involved inside Syria. "Boots"
are already on the ground.
Even more alarmingly, Russia has also deployed advanced S-300 antiaircraft missile batteries to bolster their force. The question though, is
against whom exactly are these highly advanced missile deployed? ISIS
does not have an Air Force so who are they meant to deter?
These missiles are clearly to deter Israel and they will seriously impact
upon the IAF's ability to act in Syrian and Lebanese air space should they
so desire.
This impressive Russian arsenal is further augmented by the ominous
presence of a Russia nuclear submarine, off Syria's coast in the
Mediterranean. This provides Russia with the ultimate deterrence, if it were

needed.
Clearly Russia are in Syria for the long game, not the short.
Russia's aims in Syria seem to be threefold. Firstly, defend the Syrian
naval port of Tartus. Although ostensibly a Syrian port, as Al-Assad is a
client ruler of Putin, the port is in effect Russian and it is through this port
that Russia has the absolutely crucial access it requires to the
Mediterranean.
This sea port is at the centre of Russian aspirations for this region as it
remains a key strategic goal for Putin to dominate the entire Mediterranean
basin area militarily. Without a functioning deep sea port this is impossible.
The second aim is to maintain the power of Bashir Al-Assad. Assad is a
proxy ruler of Syria on behalf of Putin's Russia. Assad effectively rules
Syria on Putin's behalf. This might not have been so a decade ago, but it
certainly is now. Assad knows full well that the only reason he and his
family are still alive today is because of Vladimir Putin. Assad's government
continues to exist because Russia have bolstered them against ISIS; that
is the only reason it still stands.
Recently, Putin has been taken aback by ISIS, their string of stinging
victories over Assad's forces and now recognizes the genuine possibility
that without direct Russian intervention, Assad and Syria will fall to ISIS.
If Assad falls Putin's hold over Syria will fail and his influence over the
entire Middle East will have suffered a devastating blow. Russia's real
access to the Middle East is through Syria, therefore Putin will not let
Assad fall.
The final Russian objective relates to Israel and regards the "hook" that
God Himself will place in Gog's jaw. At some point Gog will have an "evil
thought" and will determine to invade the beautiful land to "take a spoil." It
seems increasingly likely that this "evil thought" centers on the Leviathan
gas fields of Israel, an oil field so vast it could dwarf the existing Saudi and
Iraqi fields making Israel, or whoever owns them, the richest nation on
planet Earth. These oil fields also sit easily within what Russia perceives as
their legitimate sphere of influence. It is within their grasp.
To this aim Putin has allowed the establishment of a separate front to
open against Israel in the Golan Heights. Under the cover of the Syrian
army their ally Iran is trying to "build a second terrorist front against us," or
so Benjamin Netanyahu has complained. Iran is occupying Syria along

with Russia.
We truly live in days of awe. We are blessed to see what we see today. We
are witness to the real time build-up of the horde that will seek to vanquish
Gods very own inheritance, as described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. Multitudes
past have gazed at these days from afar through the lens of scripture yet
we are privileged to see these events in real time as our present day
reality.
ISIS and the abject horrors they have wrought have forced the mass
migration of entire people groups clearing vast swathes of Syria before
them. This will make the Russian take over all the more simple. Iran, now a
legitimate player in the region because of Obama's absence of any form of
Middle Eastern leadership, now enjoy a meaningful presence in Iraq and
Syria. The fruits of "leading from behind."
At the very same time Israel have discovered a gas field that potentially
dwarfs all others in the Middle East, the Leviathan gas field. In his vision
Ezekiel saw a horde led by Gog attacking Israel so that they may, "...take a
spoil." This is that horde forming now.
The alliances necessary for Ezekiel 38 and 39 to come to pass are in
place, and functioning well. Russia and Iran are very close. Turkey have
become natural allies to Iran due to a hatred for Israel. Indeed, Recap
Ergogan, President of Turkey openly despises Israel, he is a vicious hater
of Israel who talks often of the need to free Al-Quds from the hands of the
Jews. Al-Quds is known in Arabic as Jerusalem.
Gog is taking up military positions right on Israel's border and has already
expressed an interest in Israel's "spoil." Gog is also bringing with him all
the allies named in Ezekiel 38 and 39. We will now witness the full and
rapid militarization of Syria by Russia and Iran.
Israel must look tantalizing to Vladimir Putin. In the White House sits a
president who is openly hostile to Israel, a man well known for his utter
loathing of Benjamin Netanyahu, a president who does not care one jot for
the tiny Jewish State. The Middle East stands in ruins because of the Arab
spring, ISIS and failed military intervention from the West.
European nations that would stand against Gog if he were to move against
Israel are becoming swamped by their own crisis of humanity, threatening
their very way of life. These same European nations have also had their
stomach for a fight ripped out of them by more than a decade of failed
military intervention in this same region.

The world-wide economy is teetering on the brink of collapse and because


of this all Western NATO nations have significantly cut back on their armed
forces spending. The exception of course being NATO's old foe Russia,
who have instead injected billions into their military machine, completely
revitalizing it and igniting a renewed militaristic optimism within the Russian
military apparatus.
Then there is little Israel, sitting all alone in the Middle East. Little Israel
sitting on an oil field of immense size and almost incalculable value. Little
Israel, hated and scorned by all nations of the world, openly despised,
seemingly without a true friend or a real protector. Little Israel, isolated,
alone, very exposed.
Or so Gog thinks.
Blessed be the Lord God, who has revealed these things to his servants!
He has not left us alone but has revealed to us what is shortly to come to
pass. Though the world will look on these things in days to come with fear
and dread we should not. We know the end from the beginning!
Israel is rapidly approaching her appointment with destiny and it will not be
man who comes to her aid in her hour of desperate need. God Himself on
that day will stand up and fight on her behalf, and woe to Gog and his
allies, for mighty is the Lord God who will save her.
Ezekiel 38: 3-12
"And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks
into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and
horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great
company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia,
Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters,
and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and
prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto
thee, and be thou a guard unto them. After many days thou shalt be
visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back
from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains
of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the
nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to

cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Thus
saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall
things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to
them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls,
and having neither bars nor gates, to take a spoil, and to take a prey; to
turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon
the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle
and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land."

Russian marines join Hezbollah in first Syrian battle


- a danger signal for US, Israel http://www.debka.com/article/24902/Russian-marines-join-Hizballah-infirst-Syrian-battle---a-danger-signal-for-US-Israel
Before dawn on Thursday, Sept. 24, Russian marines went into battle for
the first time since their deployment to Syria, debkafile's military and
intelligence sources reveal. Russian Marine Brigade 810 fought with Syrian
army and Hezbollah special forces in an attack on ISIS forces at the
Kweiris airbase, east of Aleppo.
This operation runs contrary to the assurances of President Vladimir Putin
to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sept. 21 - just three days ago that Russian forces in Syria were only there to defend Russian interests
and would not engaged in combat with the Syrian army, Hezbollah or
Iranian troops.
The ISIS force defending the air base is dominated by Chechen fighters
under the command of Abu Omar al-Shishani, who is considered one of
the terrorist organization's leading commanders in the last two years. The
27-year-old al-Shishani hails from the Chechen enclave of Pankisi in
Georgia, like many others who joined ISIS from 2012.

However, targeting Chechen fighters was not the only reason for the order
given by Russian command in Syria to attack the air base. In DEBKA
Weekly 678 of September 11, we predicted that the first Russian mission in
Syria would be to break the Syrian rebel siege on Aleppo, Syria's secondlargest city.
As their first step, the Russians would have to prevent the cutoff of highway
5, running from Aleppo to Damascus, and keep it open for Syrian army
reinforcements and military equipment to the city.
The offensive to regain Kweiris airbase that fell to ISIS in mid-June is the
first step in the implementation of Russia's operational plan for the Aleppo
area.
Meanwhile, little substance was to be found in the reports appearing,
mainly in the United States, suggesting that Putin, disappointed by the
Obama administration's unwillingness to send the US Air Force to
collaborate with Russia in the fight against ISIS, would try to talk Obama
round if and when they meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly
on September 28.
According to debkafile's sources, these reports were spread to cover up
the serious crisis in the US war against ISIS.
While Russia poured troops and advanced hardware into Syria,
establishing bases and launching offensive action, the US anti-Islamic
State effort suffered a heavy blow with the decision of Obama's ISIS war
czar, Gen. John Allen, to step down in early November.
Sources close to the general were quoted as referring to his frustration
"with the White House micromanagement of the war and its failure to
provide adequate resources."'
The fact that the Russian forces launched their attack on ISIS shortly after
the announcement of Allen's upcoming resignation shows that Putin is not
waiting for US cooperation in the war on the Islamist terrorists. That said,
debkafile's military sources point out that the most ominous aspect for the
US and Israel of the Russian attack on the Syrian airbase is that Russian
marines were combined with Syrian and Hezbollah special forces.
For the first time in 41 years, since the 1974 war of attrition against the
IDF on the Golan, Russian troops are fighting alongside Syrian forces. It is
also the first time that a world power like Russia is willing to go into battle
with an acknowledged terrorist group, such as Hezbollah.

Our sources point out that the joint attack was completely counter to the
tone and the content of the comments exchanged by Putin and Netanyahu
at their summit.
A full report on Russian military activity and strategic objectives in Syria,
and a rundown of the content of the Putin-Netanyahu talks in Moscow
appear in the coming issue of DEBKA Weekly out Friday, September 25.

In Hajj message, Iran's leader castigates Israel and


the US - http://www.timesofisrael.com/in-hajj-message-irans-leadercastigates-israel-and-the-us/
Khamenei urges Muslims to 'understand your divine responsibility' in the
face of American 'evil'
Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei denounced Israel and castigated the
United States in a message to Hajj pilgrims on Wednesday.
Khamenei called Israeli activities at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem an
"insult" to the holy site and among the "foremost" problems for Muslims.
There have been a series of violent clashes at the mount - the holiest site
in Judaism, and the third holiest in Islam - in recent days. Israeli forces
found pipe bombs and other weaponry in the site last Sunday, where they
said their intervention prevented a planned attack. Palestinian officials
claim Israel is allowing more Jewish visitors and plans to permit Jewish
prayer at the site, which Israel denies.
Khamenei accused Israel of "trampling the lives and properties of the
oppressed Palestinians."
As for the United States, he said its "evil policies" in the region "have
resulted in war, bloodshed, destruction and displacement as well as
poverty, backwardness and sectarian and religious rifts," according to
Iran's Fars news agency.

Facing these problems, said Khamenei, Muslims "should think and


understand your divine responsibility."
Khamenei's bellicose message followed a stream of hostile rhetoric
Tuesday by several Iranian military chiefs.
Iran's chief of staff derided US Republican opposition to the recent USbacked nuclear agreement, and accused the US and Israel of sponsoring
terrorism, while another Iranian military chief scoffed that Tehran had
intimidated the US into abandoning the idea of using military force in the
region.
The anti-US statements came as Iran held a military parade outside Tehran
to showcase weapons including surface-to-surface missiles such as the
solid-fuel Sejjil and the liquid-fuel Ghadr, both with a range of 2,000
kilometers (1,250 miles). Also on display at the annual parade were
Russian-made S-200 and Tor-M1 surface-to-air missile systems designed
primarily to track, target, and destroy aircraft and cruise missiles.

Hagee on Iran Deal: Final Blood Moon a Divine


Warning - By Erick Stakelbeck http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2015/September/Hagee-on-Iran-DealBlood-Moon-a-Divine-Warning/
The rise of ISIS. The Iran nuclear deal. An Israeli war with Hamas.
All of these world-altering events have taken place since Passover 2014,
when the first in a series of four blood moons appeared in the sky.
We're now approaching the last of these blood moons, and some believe it
could be a signal that God is getting ready to move on the world stage.
It's called a tetrad: four total lunar eclipses appearing in close succession,
just a few months apart and turning the moon into an eerie blood red color.
These tetrads have been a rare occurrence throughout history, yet we are
now in the midst of one. It began in April 2014 on the Jewish holiday of
Passover, when the first blood moon appeared. Soon, we'll see the final

blood moon: on September 28, during the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles.


A Sign from God?
The final blood moon comes as a nuclear deal is being finalized with the
Iranian regime -- a deal that some fear could lead to war.
"I have said it many times and I say it again: the day America turns its back
on Israel will be the day God turns his back on America," said Pastor John
Hagee, who leads Cornerstone Church in San Antonio. "And the day we
validate this Iran nuclear deal as signed, sealed and delivered, will be the
day we stick our finger in the eye of God."
Hagee is author of the bestselling book Four Blood Moons and appears in
a recent film of the same name.
He believes the current tetrad of four blood moons is a sign from God to
the world that something major is about to happen involving Israel -- with
Iran's drive towards a nuclear weapon being a possible trigger.
"What the United States of America has done in the Iran agreement is to
guarantee war," Hagee told CBN News. "Anyone in the world who has any
conception about the ideology of Iran knows war is coming. These people
were shouting 'death to America' and 'death to Israel' the day they signed
the deal in Iran."
"Iran has been saying for years that it is going to wipe Israel off the map,"
he continued. "They have the will to do it and now that the Obama
administration has paved the way for them to get a nuclear weapon,
they've given Iran the power to do it."
Hagee notes that the three previous tetrads of blood moons -- all falling on
Jewish feast days -- have coincided with major events for Israel and the
Jewish people:

In 1492, the Jews were expelled from Spain and Columbus


discovered America, which would become a safe haven for the
Jewish people.

In 1948, Israel was re-born as a nation.

And in 1967, Israel recaptured Jerusalem during the Six-Day War.

No Coincidence
Blood moons are mentioned in scripture, including in the Book of Joel, the
Book of Revelation and the Book of Acts.
"The prophet Joel writes the words, 'I, the Lord, will cause the sun not to
give its light -- a solar eclipse -- and the moon will turn to blood before the
great and notable day of the Lord,'" said Hagee. "Genesis 1:14 said God is
using the sun, moon and stars to send signals to mankind."
"God used the stars to cause the Magi to find Jesus Christ," he continued.
"Joshua, when they were in the battle of the five kings, commanded the
moon and the sun to stand still for almost a day."
Hagee believes the current tetrad of blood moons -- coming during Jewish
feasts while Israel's enemies are on the march -- is no coincidence.
"The evidence is very clear scripturally that God controls the sun, moon
and stars," he said. "And that God is sending us a signal through the sun,
the moon and the stars. The question is, are we listening?"

excellent DVD in their hands! Thank you again! - L. Rhone
(Iowa)

"I loved this DVD, from beginning to end the message was

Our Best DVD Ever

I believe CONVERGENCE, is the best DVD that we have ever


produced! It's jammed packed full of stunningly vivid images and
Hi-Def clips, that thoroughly show that we are in the end of the
End Times, right before the Rapture and the Tribulation.

100 % Worded

This DVD is 100% worded for the hearing impaired. Every word
the narrator speaks, is clearly on the screen.

A Must See DVD

Every believer needs to watch this DVD and then share it with
their friends, family members, and co-workers. Every church,
and small bible study group, should watch this DVD and use it to
evangelize. There is an invitation at the end of the DVD, that
gives everyone the opportunity to ask Jesus into their lives!

Evangelistic tool

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well, then a


DVD, with thousands of images, must be priceless. Today's
generation does not read books as much as us old school
people. But, hand them a DVD, and they are more than likely to
watch it.

Great work man!"- R. Miller

"Awesome video! I watched it last night with my family, and we loved it, and plan to
share the word about it" - C. Young

"My wife and I watched the video and it is outstanding. Biblically solid...... we
especially like the clear bible referencing and quoting. The video is a moving
tapestry tightly weaved with spectacular photography, bible references, and the
signs of the times put together like a jigsaw puzzle. The gospel is presented clearly
with tender love. We pray that this DVD gets distributed far and wide. I hope youth
ministers have the courage to show this DVD rather than the garbage materials of
the emergent church movement." - John Wicklund Board President for Olive Tree
Ministries

"I received The End of Times DVD today. It is Superb! For those that don't know
much, or anything about Bible Prophecy, this DVD should really open their eyes, a
great teaching tool. For those that have grown cold or indifferent in the Lord, this
should awaken them." T. Nelson

"The DVD provides an effective mix of biblical teaching and history, interspersed
with the happenings in Israel today. Particularly effective is the emotional ending
showing the return of Jewish people worldwide back to Israel and traveling with a
sense of destiny. Many commentators have said Israel is God's hour hand,
Jerusalem is the minute hand, and the Temple Mount is the second hand on God's
timepiece. The video is a great introduction and myth-buster for those who do not
know of the importance of Israel in God's eyes or who believe Israel has as much
significance in today's world as Madagascar or the Canary Islands." - John
Wicklund, Chairman Olive Tree Ministries Board of Directors

Got the DVD today and just finished watching it...outstanding!!! Loved it!!! - G.
Madison - Oklahoma

I watched "Israel God's Timepiece" last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have
loved Israel ever since I read the book "Exodus", when I was in the Army in 1958. I
do everything I can to support Israel and get people involved in what they are going
through, and more than that, to pray for Peace in Jerusalem, according to Psalm
122. Your DVD was a fitting tribute to this wonderful, spectacular country and God's
very own "baby". Thanks for taking the time to put it together. Very well done. - J.
Masters - Mississippi

It is really a professional production and I see why it is so well received. In fact we


felt it is actually the best film we have seen on end time events. - Bill & Brenda
Hicks

At first I thought it was going to be another routine message but as it progressed it


became more and more impressive. It was a great message. Congratulations on a
very well presented and produced DVD. - R. Webb - Williamsburg

Another effective witness from Randy and Prophecy Update. The "There will be
Tribulation" video describes the purpose and the sequence of events during the
final seven years prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The linkage to many
Old Testament prophecies clearly show the importance of the nation of Israel to this
seven-year period. The pictures in the video document a world already full of
tribulation- how terrible will be those seven years. Great teaching tool for small
groups and youth ministers to present the gospel message through the topic of
bible prophecy. - John Wicklund Chair- Olive Tree Ministries Board of
Directors

"Moving and Inspirational" - D. Koerner, Bakersfield, CA

"Your Presentation will literally scare the h-ll out some people. There is enough
scripture and warnings of what is coming to cause, anyone, who has put off
accepting the Lord's salvation through Jesus to repent now!" - Don Mills - Director
of Programming - CSN Radio - Twin Falls, ID

Brother Randy, to say it was a great movie documentary is an understatement.


Thank you for doing the Lord's work. This movie gave me the chills. - Terrance Alan
- Kaukauna, WI

Thanks so much for the DVD There will be Tribulation...I watched it the other day,
finally. It is well done and really holds your attention. In fact, it's
unrelenting...which of course is what it needs to be. - Rich and JoAnne - Temecula,

What Is The Purpose Of The Pope's Visit? - Belle Ringer


- http://www.salvationandsurvival.com/2015/09/the-narrow-gate-no-longerapplies.html

I need to begin this blog by making it clear that it is not my intention to


offend or wound those of the Catholic faith. Indeed, I am not questioning
your faith or belief in God... that is something that we share. But if you
read this blog with any amount of regularity, then you know that I am
disparaged of the shape that Jesus's Church is in ... and that includes all
churches, including the Catholic Church. And not being a Catholic, I do not
invest allegiance or loyalty to the Pope as my intercessor. I do not judge
those who do; I simply follow a different path. I choose to adhere to the
commands and voice of my Lord through His Holy Word in the Bible.
Now, that I've made my position clear, I want to address my initial
opinion of this Pope's historic visit to the U.S. Pope Francis, perhaps far
more than any of his predecessors, is seen as "the people's Pope". He
seems to have a foot in both worlds; gently admonishing the Church to not
be silent in the face of humanity's issues, such as hunger, poverty,
terrorism, abortion, and the immigrants that he refers to as "pilgrims". In
fact, he has made economic justice and social equality a hallmark of his
Papacy, as well as climate change. He has also stood strong for the
institutions of family and marriage, along with calls for tolerance and nondiscrimination.
But here is what concerns me... Those throughout our cultural and
social fabric are looking to him to help solidify their political agendas.
Forgive me for being so bold but, to me, it cheapens one's declared faith in
God. While announcing that Francis's visit is calling attention to, and
unifying the faithful throughout this nation and the world, from what I've
seen so far, the Elite are using the Pope's visit to further their own political
and social motives.
It was quite obvious in the President's welcoming address; he correctly
lavished praise on the Pope for the excitement that 70 million Catholics in
this nation are experiencing due to his visit. But if you read the transcript
of his speech, you can see religious homilies like mercy, grace and
compassion used to subtly inject his political agenda on immigration; racial
discrimination; diplomacy versus war; Christians versus Muslims; saving
our planet; and of course, his ever-present campaign slogan of hope.
The Pope, himself, did not shy away from interjecting his own worldly
motives for this trip; among them "building a just and vastly ordered
society" and "sustainable and integrated development". He also found it
encouraging that the President is proposing an initiative for reducing air
pollution. Isn't this a rather odd testimony for a Pope? Does anyone else
think that the Pope sounds like a representative for the United Nations and
Agenda 21?

But perhaps it was the political pundits on the news outlets that were
the most astonishing, among them, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who best
exemplified the real and underlying message from this historic visit. RFK
was particularly proud that he shares the name of Francis with the Pope
(as did his father), because the historic Saint Francis broke with the
Church hierarchy over their fixation on orthodoxy and ideology. He was
quick to point out that this resulted in a creed that "all of us have access to
God, particularly the poor".
He went on to say, "This Pope has taken the focus away from the
orthodoxy and ideology, and from the narrow concern of personal morality,
and opened it up to say the Church must become more concerned with
these larger issues -- war and peace, poverty, inequalities in our economic
order and above all, with pollution -- and that is the sin that we need to
focus on today."
WOW! Did you get that? Pollution is now a sin?!? Have you read that
anywhere in the Bible? Oh, I forgot ... It is quite obvious to me that it is the
"orthodoxy and ideology" of the Bible that RFK wishes this Francis to
break. But to me and millions of Christians worldwide, that "orthodoxy" is
God's Truth.
It is also apparent that the Elite find those who look to the "orthodoxy"
of the Bible for their moral views to be narrow-minded and intolerant. All I
can think of is Jesus's admonition in Matthew 7:13-14: Enter through the
narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path
that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who
enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is
the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find
it.
So, now personal morality is to be seen as narrow-minded and of less
concern than climate change? Apparently so, if you consider RFK's next
statement: "I hope that the Pope will emphasize global climate change as
a moral issue; as a sin. It is our obligation to future generations, and to put
moral parameters on our behavior [regarding how we treat the planet]".
Excuse me?!? Climate change as a moral issue? Moral parameters on
how we treat the planet? How about abortion and transgenderism and
pedophilia among the priesthood as moral issues; and shouldn't we be
setting moral parameters on that behavior???
It is obvious from comments by Kennedy and others that there is hope
the Pope will influence public policy in our country during his visit. Here's

one statement to prove this point: "Should the Pope influence policy -after all, he speaks for 70 million Catholics in this country -- he will be a
good role model. The U.S. is the most powerful nation in the world, and
we have a special obligation to the rest of the world to treat people fairly
and model behaviors that are moral behaviors, like forcing the economy to
serve humanity." (Oops! There's re-distribution of wealth!) Once again I'd
like to point out that our behavior regarding abortion, the destruction of the
Biblical family, the criticism of Biblical marriage, and the promotion of
transgenderism have been far from moral, although these Elite have
championed them all.
I heard statements such as this, regarding the Pope's visit and his
address to Congress: that we should "focus on global warming to the
welfare of all human beings on the planet." What about the welfare of the
55 million babies we are responsible for aborting? Shouldn't we address
that issue before tackling global warming? And, then there is the
controversial decision by the Pope to give priests the discretion to grant
absolution to women who have had an abortion. I realize that this is an
issue that will naturally put me at odds with Catholics... but I believe that a
woman will have to go to God to receive forgiveness for the murder of
God's creation; no man can do that in His place. So I sincerely believe that
any attempt to connect this Papal decision to God's Jubilee Year and the
forgiveness of debts is misguided; and me and my faithful Catholic friends
will just have to agree to disagree.
Finally, I think it was Robert F. Kennedy's final words that struck me as
so paradoxical. He said we should "quit looking at those things that divide
us and look at what unifies us". I suspect that he was suggesting that we
should just compromise on the moral issues that are dividing the Church
and society in America --- issues like same-sex marriage; and the ability to
choose your own sexual identity; and even the issue of whether radical
Islam is a threat to humanity -- give up the narrow way and get on the
bandwagon with a global and ecumenical movement. Except, this is how I
see it: it is precisely because we did quit looking at these things [that
divided us and separated us from God] that we are in the mess we're in.
I'm sorry, but I am not looking to any man -- and that includes the
Pope -- to give me counsel or hope in my eternal future. And when I see
religious world leaders aligning themselves with political world leaders and
organizations, it only confirms what the Holy Spirit reveals to me [in my
spirit] and through the Bible... the time is nearing when men's hearts will
fail them because false prophets and leaders have deceived them and led
the world astray. Now is the time to know what you believe and in Whom
you believe. Be careful to choose your path wisely ... do not enter the wide

gate of worldly tolerance and compromise. Yes, it's true that the narrow
path and gate are more difficult to enter -- and the world will condemn you
for the stand you take -- but your eternal rewards will surpass any and all
benefits that the New World Order promises from unity with their "ordered
society". It will be interesting to see what transpires from this historic Papal
visit, and how it aligns with a Biblical worldview. May God continue to
stand with the faithful and give us courage and strength to endure!
1 John 5:4 "For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the
world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith."

George Will: Petrus Romanus Is the False Prophet


That Would Lead the World to Ruin - George Will http://skywatchtv.com/2015/09/24/george-will-petrus-romanus-is-the-falseprophet-that-would-lead-the-world-to-ruin/
Francis grew up around the rancid political culture of Peronist populism,
the sterile redistributionism that has reduced his Argentina from the world's
14th highest per-capita GDP in 1900 to 63rd today. Francis' agenda for the
planet, "global regulatory norms," would globalize Argentina's downward
mobility. As the world spurns his church's teachings about abortion,
contraception, divorce, same-sex marriage and other matters, Francis
jauntily makes his church congruent with the secular religion of
"sustainability." Because this is hostile to growth, it fits Francis' seeming
sympathy for medieval stasis, when his church ruled the roost, economic
growth was essentially nonexistent and life expectancy was around 30.
Francis' fact-free flamboyance reduces him to a shepherd whose
selectively reverent flock, genuflecting only at green altars, is tiny relative
to the publicity it receives from media otherwise disdainful of his church.
He stands against modernity, rationality, science and, ultimately, the
spontaneous creativity of open societies in which people and their desires
are not problems but precious resources. Americans cannot
simultaneously honor him and celebrate their nation's premises.
Pope Francis embodies sanctity but comes trailing clouds of sanctimony.
With a convert's indiscriminate zeal, he embraces ideas impeccably
fashionable, demonstrably false, and deeply reactionary.

They would devastate the poor on whose behalf he purports to speak, if


his policy prescriptions were not as implausible as his social diagnoses are
shrill.
Supporters of Francis have bought newspaper and broadcast
advertisements to disseminate some of his woolly sentiments that have the
intellectual tone of fortune cookies. One example: "People occasionally
forgive, but nature never does."
The Vatican's majesty does not disguise the vacuity of this. Is Francis
intimating that environmental damage is irreversible? He neglects what
technology has accomplished regarding London's air (see Page 1 of
Dickens' "Bleak House") and other matters.
And the Earth is becoming "an immense pile of filth"? Hyperbole is a
predictable precursor of yet another U.N. Climate Change Conference - the
21st since 1995. Fortunately, rhetorical exhibitionism increases as its
effectiveness diminishes.
In his June encyclical and elsewhere, Francis lectures about our
responsibilities, but neglects the duty to be as intelligent as one can be.
This man who says "the church does not presume to settle scientific
questions" proceeds as though everything about which he declaims is
settled, from imperiled plankton to air conditioning being among humanity's
"harmful habits."
The church that thought it was settled science that Galileo was heretical
should be attentive to all evidence. Francis deplores "compulsive
consumption," a sin to which the 1.3 billion persons without even electricity
can only aspire.
He leaves the Vatican to jet around praising subsistence farming, a
romance best enjoyed from 30,000 feet above the realities that such
farmers yearn to escape.
The saint who is Francis' namesake supposedly lived in sweet harmony
with nature. For most of mankind, however, nature has been, and remains,
scarcity, disease, and natural - note the adjective - disasters. Our
flourishing requires affordable, abundant energy for the production of
everything from food to pharmaceuticals.
Poverty has probably decreased more in the last two centuries than it has
in the preceding three millennia because of industrialization powered by
fossil fuels. Only economic growth has ever produced broad amelioration

of poverty, and since growth began in the late 18th century, it has
depended on such fuels.
Matt Ridley, author of "The Rational Optimist," notes that coal supplanting
wood fuel reversed deforestation, and "fertilizer manufactured with gas
halved the amount of land needed to produce a given amount of food."
The capitalist commerce that Francis disdains is the reason the portion of
the planet's population living in "absolute poverty" ($1.25 a day) declined
from 53 percent to 17 percent in three decades after 1981. Even in lowincome countries, writes economist Indur Goklany, life expectancy
increased from between 25 to 30 years in 1900 to 62 years today.
Sixty-three percent of fibers are synthetic and derived from fossil fuels; of
the rest, 79 percent come from cotton, which requires synthetic fertilizers
and pesticides. "Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides derived from fossil
fuels," he says, "are responsible for at least 60 percent of today's global
food supply."
Without fossil fuels, he says, global cropland would have to increase at
least 150 percent - equal to the combined land areas of South America and
the European Union - to meet current food demands.
Francis grew up around the rancid political culture of Peronist populism,
the sterile redistributionism that has reduced his Argentina from the world's
14th highest per-capita GDP in 1900 to 63rd today. Francis' agenda for the
planet, "global regulatory norms," would globalize Argentina's downward
mobility.
As the world spurns his church's teachings about abortion, contraception,
divorce, same-sex marriage and other matters, Francis jauntily makes his
church congruent with the secular religion of "sustainability." Because this
is hostile to growth, it fits Francis' seeming sympathy for medieval stasis,
when his church ruled the roost, economic growth was essentially
nonexistent and life expectancy was around 30.
Francis' fact-free flamboyance reduces him to a shepherd whose
selectively reverent flock, genuflecting only at green altars, is tiny relative
to the publicity it receives from media otherwise disdainful of his church.
Secular people with anti-Catholic agendas drain his prestige, a dwindling
asset, into promotion of policies inimical to the most vulnerable people and
unrelated to what once was the papacy's very different salvific mission.

He stands against modernity, rationality, science and, ultimately, the


spontaneous creativity of open societies in which people and their desires
are not problems but precious resources. Americans cannot
simultaneously honor him and celebrate their nation's premises.

Salvation Revealed by the Roman Road - Nathele Graham


- twotug@embarqmail.com
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10.
Those are sobering words. We tend to overlook our own sins and
unrighteousness because we can justify and defend our own actions. The
end justifies the means so to speak. The problem is that our idea of good
and bad doesn't agree with God's. You may think that you're a good
person, but remember, you're judging yourself by human standards that
are biased in your favor. God's judgment is without prejudice and
completely fair. He loves His creation and has done everything possible for
us to live eternally with Him, but it is a choice we make to accept Him or
reject Him. If you have not committed your life to Christ yet, read through
this commentary and understand that you need Jesus Christ for salvation.
Your eternal life depends upon it.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23.
Every person who has ever lived, from Adam right on down to you and me,
are sinners. For instance, when we get in a tough situation, we lie: "The
check is in the mail". Or we steal by taking a paperclip or pencil from work
without permission. These don't seem too bad, but they are still lies and
theft, and therefore sins. Because of our sin nature we cannot stand before
the perfect and righteous God on our own merit. You may protest that
everybody lies now and then or takes a pencil and it's just normal. That
truth underlines the fact that all have sinned and fall short of God's
standard of perfection. Just because we look at little white lies and other
"little" sins as part of life doesn't make these or any other act of
disobedience, acceptable by God's standards. God doesn't hide the truth
and Scripture tells us clearly what sin is and where it originated.
The Garden of Eden was a real place. When God created Adam, this
beautiful Garden was Adam's home. God gave him one rule: Don't eat the

Forbidden Fruit. If he did, he would die. God gave Adam free will because
He wanted human beings who would choose to love Him instead of robots
who were programmed to love Him. After Adam was created God took Eve
out of him to be his companion. They lived in Paradise and had all they
could ever want, yet Eve talked with Satan, listened to his lies, and was
deceived into eating the Forbidden Fruit. Satan's lies confused her and she
choose to disobey God. After she ate the Forbidden Fruit she knew that
God was right, not Satan, but it was too late. The perfect body she had
been created with became corrupt. She had lost her immortality. Adam
loved her. He loved her so much that he chose to eat the Forbidden Fruit
and join her in sin. "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world,
and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have
sinned:" Romans 5:12. Because of Adam's choice, sin and death became
a reality for all of God's creation. Adam and Eve were expelled from the
Garden of Eden and we all suffer the consequences of Adam's sin.
Everyone will feel the sting of death one day. If the story ended there,
humanity would have no hope; we would have no way to get back to the
fellowship Adam and Eve shared with God prior to their sin.
Although Adam's sin brought sin and death to all humanity, there is hope.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through
Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23. Eve was deceived, Adam made a
choice, and we live daily with the suffering and death that resulted from
that sin. God was not surprised by Adam's choice but certainly was
saddened. The good news for us is that a plan was in place long before
God laid the foundations of the earth. It would take time to fulfill that plan,
and first the total depravity of mankind would be manifest. Adam lived to
see his descendants embrace Satan's lies and rejected God. Fallen angels
corrupted all flesh and God would have to judge His creation and destroy it
by flood. A few animals and eight people were still genetically pure and
God saved them through that flood of Noah's day. After the flood Noah's
family repopulated the earth, but Satan and his minions continue to tempt
humans to sin and rebel against God.
Let's take a short side trip off of the Roman Road to see why Jesus Christ
is important. After sin entered creation, man was separated from God.
Because He loves us so much He began showing us the way to come
back to fellowship with Him. He first gave the Law to Moses. Like a
schoolmaster the Law taught about God's ways. It taught what constitutes
sin and it also provided a temporary way to cover sin through animal
sacrifices...the shedding of animal blood. When we think of the sacrificial
shedding of the blood of animals it is an ugly thought. When Adam and Eve
were expelled from the Garden, God sacrificed one of His animals to make
them coverings. Their sin wasn't taken away, but it was covered by the
blood sacrifice. "It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should
take away sins." Hebrews 10:4. The only possible way for sin to be taken

away would be by the shedding of pure blood not corrupted by sin. That
blood could only come from God Himself. "The next day, John seeth Jesus
coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away
the sin of the world." John 1:29. Jesus Christ, God incarnate, willingly left
Heaven, entered His creation, and shed His pure blood on the cross of
Calvary. He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. By faith, if you
choose to accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ you will be saved from
eternal damnation.
Now, back to the Roman Road. God's love for you is without bound. "But
God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us." Romans 5:8. We all sin, but even though we go against
His will, God still loves us and shed His own blood to save us from eternal
damnation. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be
saved." Romans 10:13. God doesn't want anyone to face eternal death,
but He won't force you to choose eternal life. He loves you and He wants
you to spend eternity with Him. All it takes is faith in the finished work of
Christ on the cross. Only the blood of Jesus Christ will take your sin away.
God made it easy for us. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the
Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9-10. First understand that you are a sinner and cannot save
yourself. Then believe that Jesus, God incarnate, shed His blood to take
away your sin. He rose from the grave on the third day and conquered
death, providing us with the only way to eternal life. It is only His
righteousness that makes us worthy to stand in the presence of God, not
our own. Place your faith in Him and you are forgiven. After that there are
things you need to do out of obedience, like be baptized and study your
Bible. These things will help you grow stronger in your walk with Jesus, but
they won't save you...salvation is only obtained by faith in the atoning
sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Then your journey truly begins. Sin will continue
to haunt you, but when you recognize sin in your life and confess it to God
He will forgive you. Then, turn away from that sin. It will be a lifelong
process, but a journey well worth taking. "Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1. That
peace can only come through our Lord Jesus Christ.
There is no better time than right now to place your faith in Him. There is
no sin you have committed that He will not forgive. "O wretched man that I
am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" Romans 7:24. Who
shall deliver you? Jesus Christ. Admit you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive
you, then know that you are no longer condemned. He loves you and
wants you with Him for eternity.
If you have realized that you need to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sin

and to be Lord of your life, then pray this prayer or one similar: Heavenly
Father, I know now that I'm a sinner and I am lost. I'm sorry that I've broken
Your laws and I know that I can't do anything to save myself. I know that
salvation is only through Jesus Christ shedding His blood on the cross. I
need You to forgive me. I come before You now and ask Your forgiveness
and invite You to come into my life. I ask You to forgive my sins and rule in
my life from this day forward. I place my life in Your hands. In Christ's name
I pray, Amen.
If you earnestly prayed that prayer, welcome to the family. You are now a
sinner saved by the grace of God. "There is therefore now no
condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:1. Your next step is to find a Christ
centered, Bible believing place to worship with fellow believers. Study your
Bible. Ask questions. Learn about God and grow in His ways. You will be
tempted by sin throughout your life, but strive to honor God in all you do.
When you fail, ask Him to forgive you and rely on the Holy Spirit to guide
you away from sin. Listen to Him.
Every true Christian has come to a soul saving faith in Jesus because
someone shared the Gospel with them. "So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17.
It might have been a parent who has raised you to know Christ, or maybe it
was a Sunday school teacher or a friend who took time to answer your
questions. Someone cared enough about you to share the Gospel with
you. Maybe you met Jesus through this commentary. How it happened isn't
as important is that it did happen. Now it's your turn. Share the Good News
of Jesus Christ with a friend, a co-worker, or anyone else you know who is
lost. Take them down the Roman Road and show them their need for
Jesus.
God bless you all,
Nathele Graham

Daily Jot: Much ado about the Pope - Bill Wilson www.dailyjot.com
Roman Catholicism's leader is in Washington, DC. Traffic is snarled. The
media is in an uproar. The town is taken by Pope Francis, the socialist
pope who has said that allah and God (YHVH) are the same. Scratching
your head on that one? It's true. On Wednesday, March 20, 2013, Pope
Francis welcomed an ecumenical group of religious leaders who attended
his inauguration. He said, "I greet and thank cordially all of you, dear
friends belonging to other religious traditions; firstly the Muslims, who
worship the one living and merciful God, and call upon Him in prayer. I
really appreciate your presence, and in it I see a tangible sign of the wish
to grow in reciprocal trust and in cooperation for the common good of
humanity."
So the Pope prays to the same god as do Muslims. After the remarks, the
website Catholic Answers, which equips people to defend the Roman
Catholic faith, tried to explain away the Pope's remarks, saying, "Pope
Francis's words have a pastoral rather than doctrinal purpose. Their aim is
to build inter-religious bridges by generously acknowledging whatever can
be found to be true in other faiths-not to make precise pronouncements
about their theology." Trouble is, the Pope is playing with the truth of the
Holy Scriptures when he makes irresponsible statements like this. It leads
people to false doctrine and has the underpinnings of creating a one world
religion that ignores doctrine and embraces the "pastoral."
The Koran's Sura 4:171 says, "O followers of the Book! do not exceed the
limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the
truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium (Mary) is only a messenger of Allah
and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him;
believe therefore in Allah and His messengers, and say not, Three. Desist,
it is better for you; Allah is only one Allah; far be It from His glory that He
should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth
is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector." Sura 19:29: "God forbid that
He Himself should beget a son!" Sura 17:111:"Praise be to God who has
never begotten a son; who has no partner in His Kingdom..."
In Matthew 24, Jesus explains the end times. He said in Matthew 24:4,

"Take heed that no man deceive you." Verse 11 says, "And many false
prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." Those who would say that
allah and God are the same are chief among the false prophets. The basic
tenet of the Christian faith is found in John 14:6, where Jesus declares: "I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by
me." 2 John 7 says, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who
confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and
an antichrist." The Koran, the holy book of allah, denies that Jesus is the
Christ. Much ado about the Pope.

You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from following
the truth? -Galatians 5:7
One thing I have found in life is that it's full of surprises. I have been greatly
surprised by the way people's lives have turned out. I think of people I went
to school with who seemingly had no potential whatsoever, and they have
clearly proven otherwise. Then there are those who seemed to have so
much promise, but when I look at the trajectory their lives took, it is another
story altogether.
I have been a pastor for more than four decades now, and I have seen a
lot of people come and go through the years. I've seen some individuals
who were gifted as musicians, preachers, or in some other way effectively
crash and burn. I have also seen some who I thought would go out and
change the world basically self-destruct instead.
As time goes by, I find myself being less impressed with things I was once
more impressed by and more impressed with things I was once less
impressed by. Nowadays, I am far more impressed by character than
charisma. I am more interested in personal integrity than in mere talent.
(Will this person stand the test of time?) I am impressed not by a person
who has a huge ministry, but by someone who is still married to the same
person they started out with. That impresses me, because so many things
change as time goes by.

If God has gifted you, then you need to take that gift and use it for His
glory. You not only want to start this race well, but you also want to finish it
well. You can hold on to first place in a race for a while, but if, at the end,
you break the rules or don't cross the finish line, it doesn't count. Finish
well.

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in
more danger of falling than at any time in its history.
But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very
decline. From this point on, we believers have to get
serious. We are going to face discouragement,
disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the
time between now and the Rapture. But don't be
discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will
provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good
news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and
your hope with those who need Christ. We still have
time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's
kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread
for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge
the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so
that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your
generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform
is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in
many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you
have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that
accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your
generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians
9:10-13
