U.S Allies Launch Largest Ever Middle East Naval Exercise. WAR IS COMING!



Allies Launch Largest Ever Middle East Naval Exercise. WAR IS COMING!

U.S Allies Launch Largest Ever Middle East Naval Exercise. Is ISRAEL Preparing to Strike IRAN?

The United States and its allies began their largest ever naval exercise in the Middle East on Sunday, designed to demonstrate their ability to counter a potential Iranian naval blockade of the vital Straight of Hormuz.


An armada of military hardware from 25 nations, including battleships, aircraft carriers, submarines and minesweepers has descended on the Persian Gulf as Western policy makers desperately try to convince Israel that diplomacy and sanctions designed to halt Iran's nuclear program need more time to work.

The massive show of force has once again brought the threat of war to the region, raising the prospect Israel will launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran, which has already promised retaliation for any attacks against its nuclear facilities.

On Sunday, the Associated Press quoted Iran's top revolutionary Guard commander Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari as waring that: "His country's missiles will ensure 'nothing will remain' of Israel if it takes military action against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program."

Predicting a joint U.S./Israeli attack, Jafari added that he was also prepared to strike American bases in the region.

And while American officials have downplayed the naval exercise as being "focus[ed] on a hypothetical threat from an extremist organization to mine the international strategic waterways of the Middle East," some commentators see the exercise -- which lasts until 27 September -- as a precursor to something far more immediate.

"An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran's covert nuclear weapons programme," warned the Daily Telegraph's defense correspondent Sean Rayment on Monday.

"Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war," Rayment wrote.

"In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise."

But others caution that Iran is unlikely to mine the vital sea lanes of Hormuz as they would too would be hit by the resulting oil blockade.

"They would be hurting themselves the most because they would be cutting off their main source of revenue, which is oil exports, at a time when they are already being sanctioned heavily and money is tight," Karim Sadjadpour, a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, told PBS.

Iran would have only two reasons to mine the Straight, according to Sadjadpour.

"In the event of a [Israeli] military attack, there is more than [a] 50 percent chance they would attempt to close the strait or prevent others from passing through freely," he added.

"They don't have that many options for retaliation. They can try to launch missiles into Saudi Arabia to spike oil prices; they can try to unleash Hezbollah and Hamas; and, if they want to hurt the world, it's by closing the strait."

Secondly, if all their oil export options were closed then they would have nothing to lose by blockading Hormuz.

Prayer on the Square in Laurinburg, North Carolina













Scotland County Christians are reaching across racial and denominational barriers to try to save their shared community.

“Laurinburg and Scotland County have a lot of challenges,” said the Rev. Michael Edds, pastor of Cross Pointe Church. “We have one of the highest crime rates in the nation and the highest unemployment in the state. We have a lot of gangs, we have a lot of poverty, we have a lot of drugs. We’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not the government’s fault, it’s not the police or the sheriff’s department’s fault - it’s the churches’ fault.”  We have failed to pray and to take Christ to the streets of our community.  We have failed to live like Christians.

On Wednesday, Edds led the “Prayer on the Square,” a prayer group meeting on Wednesdays at noon at the corner of Church and Main streets in Laurinburg. Both meetings have attracted some 30 people, all of whom share a common goal: to combat Laurinburg’s culture of drugs and crime through prayer.  The group has been gathering going on five years.

“In the last 10 years there have been 51 murders,” said one of the intercessors. “In a county of 30,000, that’s a lot, and it’s young people. We want our community turned around. These kids are just going to hell with the drugs and the violence. There have been too many kids shot and the churches have got to step up and turn it around.”
The meetings address the common problems that plague Scotland County rather than religious or political differences.

“We’re committed to coming out here and praying for our community as a group of all races and all denominations,” Edds said. “We’re not going to fight about politics; we’re here to pray.”

“It’s not about what denomination, what color you are or what church you go to, it’s just a collective group of people,” a member of the group added. “God has really been blessing us to get together to change the city, but from a prayer standpoint first. God has some work that he wants us to do, and we’ve been a little slack on it.”

Many believe that it is time for them to step outside of the familiar walls of their own churches in order to make change in the community.

“It’s time for God’s people to stop playing church and start being the church,” said Laura Sanders. “We are, no matter what denomination, the body of Christ.”

“God did not save Daniel from the lion’s den, he saved him in it,” said Robert Currie. “He did not save the Hebrew children from the fiery furnace, he saved them in the fiery furnace. We have to take action. God parted the waters and the children of Israel walked across the dry land. God didn’t pick them up and float them across it. We have to put out an effort.”

The group is open to all who wish to join in, and will meet every Wednesday at noon at the park on the corner of Main and Church Streets,  across from First United Methodist Church.

“If it rains, shines, or snows, we’re going to be here every Wednesday,” said Edds.
Edds hopes that a shift away from the flawed and divisive behaviors sometimes practiced within the Christian community will in turn bring improvements in Scotland County at large.

“We’ve focused on what divides us, and denominational splits, and all of these silly issues,” he said. “It’s time that stuff ends. God said that if we’ll repent and turn from our wicked ways, He would hear us from heaven and heal our land. The healing of this county and this city and these communities is us praying and calling on God to come down. We’re praying for a great awakening in this town.”

Some know firsthand the difficulties of escaping a criminal lifestyle, and wish to help others by showing them how to live a Christian lifestyle.

“Everything that I prayed for, God has given to me, and he’s going to put me to work on the streets,” said Eddie Howard. “I used to be a street rambler - I must have been on drugs for 15 years or more and God saved me. I want to let them know that they can change their lives and things can turn around for the good.”

The group embraces a “love the sinner, hate the sin” philosophy, and prays that the lives of criminals can be changed to the benefit of all.

“We’re taking our community back,” said Edds. “Get saved or get busted is what we’re going to tell these gangs. It’s not us, it’s God that we’ve invited to take over the town and the county. We love people. We love the gangs, we love the drug dealers, we love all of these people - we love their souls, but they’re going to stop the crime because we’ve had enough.”

Group members say that meetings will continue until the community is satisfactorily transformed, but in the short term, progress is measured one person at a time.

“If all of this was just for one person to get saved, it was all worth it,” said Matthew Sanders.

Proof: The Mark of the Beast is Here, NOW!!













A Project to Fingerprint 1.2 Billion People

Imagine creating a system to track 1.2 billion peoplephotographing them, fingerprintingthem, cataloging them and giving them all IDs.

Nandan Nilekani is not just imagining that system. He is tasked with making it a reality in India.

Nilekani is the chairman of India's Unique Identification Authority. Nilekani's previous claim to fame was as one of the founders of Infosys, India's pioneering technology firm. He recently talked to Fareed Zakaria on Sunday's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" show. Here’s an edited version of their conversation, which can also be viewed by downloading the entire show on iTunes.

ZAKARIA: So you are taking India's entire population, which previously had rarely been counted, and you are going to try and give every single person a biometric ID.

NILEKANIThat's right. We have enrolled 200 million people in the last three years since the project began. And we are using the biometrics to give them a unique number so that they don't end up having more than one number. So we're taking people, many of whom have no ID whatsoever, and taking them to the digital world. So it's like a leapfrogging of identity.

ZAKARIA: So why is this so important for India? What one hears about it is that these people are supposed to get loans, or grants or various things from the government.

(Here’s the irrefutable, in-your-face description of the Beast’s system of tracking and engaging every person in order to control and measure commerce and life!

I am also adding the Scripture reference from Revelation 13:16-18:

6 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.)  *I have included the entire text of Revelation 13 below. 

NILEKANI: We still have millions of people who don't have a formal identity or acknowledgement of their existence by the state. And unless you have a formal acknowledgement or existence you can't get a bank account or a loan. You can't get a mobile phone. You can't get your entitlements. You can't get a job. You can't rent a house.  

(Dear Church of the Living God, can I make it ANY clearer?!  Here, in front of you, now, IS THE MARK OF THE BEST!!  The closing moments of this dispensation are ticking away!  How are YOU then living?!)

So everything is linked to your basic identity. In some sense you can think of as a massive inclusion program to get the poor, and the marginalized and the identity-less into the formal economy. So that's one part of it.

By having this ID system we can make sure that people's scholarshipspensions,employment guarantee schemes all direct to the right person, either into the bank account or whatever account. So it both makes government expenditure more efficient, effective and equitable, and it's a massive inclusion exercise.

ZAKARIA: How difficult is it? How much more difficult is it to deal with the bureaucracies? Or which is worse, the bureaucratic obstacles or political obstacles?

NILEKANI: The amount of time you are to invest in evangelizing and consensus building is hugely more in the public space. And crafting a strategy which is sort of acceptable to everybody really takes a great deal of time. And that's where the big difference to me between the two worlds.


REVELATION 13: 1-18
New Living Translation (NLT)
The Beast out of the Sea

13 Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. 2 This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority.

3 I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery—but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast. 4 They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they also worshiped the beast. “Who is as great as the beast?” they exclaimed. “Who is able to fight against him?”

5 Then the beast was allowed to speak great blasphemies against God. And he was given authority to do whatever he wanted for forty-two months. 6 And he spoke terrible words of blasphemy against God, slandering his name and his dwelling—that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made—the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered.

9 Anyone with ears to hear
    should listen and understand.
10 Anyone who is destined for prison
    will be taken to prison.
Anyone destined to die by the sword
    will die by the sword.

This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.
The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. 15 He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.

16 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.

Mysterious Powerful Explosions in Michigan/Indiana - June 6, 2012 - What's Going On?




Mysterious Powerful Explosions in Michigan/Indiana - June 6, 2012 - What's Going On?

Mysterious Powerful Explosions in Michigan/Indiana - June 6, 2012 - What's Going On?A local Michigan reporter named Bob Powell who wrote: “At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman.” Trees have been snapped in half and there are reports of high levels of radiation. Important to note is that this reporter was swiftly detained and arrested when he attempted to gather more information.
What is going on?  Why the silence by the government?  Is this a cover up???

USDA - Computer Chip To Be Mandatory In US Food Stamp Recipients.



















USDA:   Computer Chip To Be Mandatory In US Food Stamp Recipents

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)
In a little while, the above scene in Revelation 13 will become a global reality. People can no longer buy or sell without themark of the beast. And sometimes that would mean no longer being able to eat!
The USDA is now considering biometric identification for all individuals who will want to benefit from their Food and Nutrition Services. The RFID chip may just soon be a must for everyone who does not want to starve!

PRAYER ON THE SQUARE IN LAURINBURG, NORTH CAROLINA












"PRAYER ON THE SQUARE"
Thursday, May 31, 2012


Deputy Sharonica Smith, Matthew Sanders, and Eddie Howard hold hands during Wednesday s prayer session.
Scotland County Christians are reaching across racial and denominational barriers to try to save their shared community.

President Given Unprecedented Power!


.


PRESIDENT OBAMA GIVEN UNPRECEDENTED POWER!!

On December 31, 2011, as people were partying and celebrating New Year's Eve, US President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, an Executive Order which restricts the human rights of American citizens.

Recently, on March 16, 2012, Obama signed the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act, an Executive Order which allows the US President to have full control of America's resources listed in section 201 of the Act including food resources, health resource, energy, civil transportation; water resources; and construction materials.  He is the first President to have such sweeping (almost dictatorial) powers!

"A Pastor's Response to the President's Endorsement of Same-Sex Marriage"
















The President recently endorsed same-sex marriage. Hollywood, the next day, rewarded him by donating millions of dollars to his reelection campaign. His move was billed as a "civil rights" issue. It is amazing the vast silence from the Christian community in response to the President's endorsement of the "Gay Rights" agenda. Christians who do protest are labeled homophobic, bigots, prejudice, or hate-mongers. It is not a matter of civil rights, hatred, or bigotry, It is a matter of what God says about it! 

As Christians, God has called us to love everyone. Jesus did so in His ministry on earth. He loved corrupt tax collectors, the uneducated Galileen fishermen, the Samaritan woman who had been married five times and was living with a man, and the woman caught in the act of adultery. He loved everyone one. However, He did not love their sin. To the adulteress He forgave He warned, "Go and sin no more." 

Homosexuality is not a civil rights issues, it is a "sin" issue. God's Word gives us His prospective on the whole issue:

*Genesis 1:27-28 states, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created male and female, Hecreated them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.
*Genesis 2 20-24 "But for Adam, no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; and she shall be called ‘woman, for she was taken out of man.” For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
*Homosexuality is an illicit lust forbidden by God. He said to His people Israel, "You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18:22).
*The biblical case against the act of homosexuality is found in Lev 18.22, 20.13; Deut 23.18, Mat 5.17-19; Rom 1.18-27; 1 Cor 6.9-11 and Rev 21.27, and God underscored His Word by destroying the sodomy of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen 19: 5, 24).
Bible-believing Christians have been attacked because of their stand on morality and clearly stating what is and is not sin. Tragically, many churches have given in to the ways of the world by and accepting sinful ways as something that is natural, normal, and acceptable. Some churches have chosen not to make a public stand one way or the other concerning homosexuality. Others have even allowed the ordination of homosexuals as ministers. Some are conducting same-sex marriage ceremonies. All of this is contrary to the Word of God, and has allowed the ways and teachings of Satan to enter into the Church.

The Word of God clearly tells us that we are not to go the ways of the world and are not to compromise our Christian beliefs. The Lord warned, "Woe to those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter." (Isaiah 5:20) The time has come that we, as Christians, must take a stand. A stand for what is right. A stand for truth. A stand for what is moral. It's time to put evil in its place.

One of the chief goals of the homosexual agenda is to advance it lifestyle through public schools.
This occurred quickly after gay marriage was imposed in Massachusetts, where homosexual relationships are taught to children as young as kindergartners, as recounted by the decision of Parker v. Hurley.

In a 1992 report by John Leo in U.S. News and World Report, he notes some books which were part of New York City's public school curriculum:

The first-grade book, "Children of the Rainbow," on page 145, which states that teachers must "be aware of varied family structures, including...gay or lesbian parents," and "children must be taught to acknowledge the positive aspects of each type of household." Another children book is "Heather Has Two Mommies," which is about a lesbian couple having a child through artificial insemination. Another book, "Gloria Goes to Gay Pride," states "Some women love women, some men love men, some women and men love each other. That's why we march in the parade, so everyone can have a choice."
Mr. Leo commented,"A line is being crossed here; in fact, a brand new ethic is descending upon the city's public school system. The traditional civic virtue of tolerance (if gays want to live together, it's their own business) has been replaced with a new ethic requiring approval and endorsement (if gays want to live together, we must 'acknowledge the positive aspects' of their way of life)."

The homosexual agenda has been implementing a marketing strategy. It is detailed in a book called "After the Ball," by gay rights' activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. It is a six point plan to transform the beliefs of ordinary Americans in regards to homosexual behavior. They state: "The agenda of homosexual activists is basically to change America from what they perceive as looking down on homosexual behavior, to the affirmation of and societal acceptance of homosexual behavior." "Thus propagandistic advertising can depict all opponents of the gay movement as homophobic bigots who are 'not Christian' and the propaganda can further show them [homosexuals] as being criticized, hated and shunned..."

Several years ago, in his book, "Shadow In The Land," Republican Congressman William Dannemeyer of California exposed the true agenda of the homosexual movement. According to him, homosexuals make the following claims: "But now the tide has turned. We have at last 'come out,' and in so doing we have exposed the mean-spirited nature of Judeo/Christian morality. You have been narrow-minded and self-righteous. But with the help of a growing number of your own membership, we are going to force you to recant everything you have ever believed or said about sexuality. Here are some of the things you will be expected to affirm, in the process of renouncing love, marriage, and family:" "(1) Henceforth homosexuality will be spoken of in your churches and synagogues as an 'honorable estate.' (2) You can either let us marry people of the same sex or better yet abolish marriage altogether, since it will give the lie to everything you have said and done in the past about sexuality. (3) You will also be expected to offer ceremonies that bless our sexual arrangements, whether or not you retain marriage as something to be celebrated in your churches. (4) You will also instruct your young people in homosexual as well as heterosexual behavior, and you will go out of your way to make certain that homosexual youths are allowed to date, attend religious functions together, openly display affection, and enjoy each other's sexuality without embarrassment or guilt. (5) If any of the older people in your midst object, you will deal with them sternly, making certain they renounce their ugly and ignorant homophobia or suffer public humiliation. (6) You will also make certain that all of the prestige and resources of your institution are brought to bear on the community, so that laws are passed forbidding discrimination against homosexuals and heavy punishments are assessed. We expect and demand the same commitment to us that you made to blacks and to women, though their suffering has not been as great as ours. (7) Finally, we will in all likelihood want to expunge a number of passages from your Scriptures and rewrite others, eliminating preferential treatment of marriage and using words that will allow for homosexual interpretations of passages describing biblical lovers such as Ruth and Boaz or Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. They issued this warning: "If all of these things do not come to pass quickly, we will subject orthodox Jews and Christians to the most sustained hatred and vilification in recent memory. We have captured the liberal establishment and the press. We have already beaten you on a number of battlefields. And we have the spirit of the age on our side. You have neither the faith nor the strength to fight us, so you might as well surrender now."
The homosexual agenda is clearly anti-family, anti-moral, anti-Christian, anti-Judaic, and anti-Biblical! The demands of their agenda are frightening!
United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia issued a warning:
"Today's opinion is the product of a Court, which is the product of a law-profession culture, that has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda, by which I mean the agenda promoted by some homosexual activists directed at eliminating the moral opprobrium (morally wrong) that has traditionally attached to homosexual conduct."


Professor Jerry Z. Muller wrote in an article titled "First Things" (Aug/Sept. 1993) how the homosexual lobby has gained widespread acceptance, especially in the educational realm. "[Their] strategy has been remarkably successful. With a rapidity largely attributable in large part to a total lack of articulate resistance, homosexual ideology has gained an unquestioned and uncontested legitimacy in American academic life. The lobby has phrased the word "homophobia" to mean "that it is impossible to give good reasons for the cultural disapproval of homosexuality." Therefore, they have attempted to attack and silence anyone in opposition to their agenda by labeling them as "homophobic," that is people who are ignorant hate-mongers.

The Professor revealed an incredible reason for the success of the homosexual agenda in America....."to a total lack of articulate resistance!" The fault for the success of evil in our nation lies at the feet of the church! The church was largely silent during the days of the holocaust that slaughtered 6 million Jews during World War 2. The church was largely silent when millions of African Americans suffered through generations of political, economic and social disfranchised. The church has been largely silent while 60 million unborn babies have been slaughtered at the pagan altar of "pro-choice." So the church remains largely silent when the first President in America history endorses a lifestyle forbidden by God, a lifestyle with an agenda to destroy the very moral foundations upon which this nation was founded, and which will surely bring the wrath of God upon us.

As a Christian and as a pastor, I must raise my voice in protest. I must give the warning of God's Word: 
 "I tell you... unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." (Luke 13:31)
"For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness (wickedness) suppress the truth. (Romans 1:18)
"Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach (disgrace) to any people."(Proverbs 14:34).

It is not a matter of civil rights, it is a matter of right and wrong, moral and immoral, good and evil. As a Christian, I love every human being, will minister to every human being, will pray with any human being but I will not love nor endorse their sin. I will articulate a scriptural resistance to the evil that is sweeping the land.

I will pray for our President, who has betrayed the very moral system on which this nation was founded. It was that moral system that catapulted America to the height of moral leadership in the world. The violation of that Biblical moral system will surely bring the wrath of God upon us. I pray that you repent Mr. President and turn back to the God of our Fathers. I pray that America repents. I pray that the church repents before it is too late! It is time that Christians take a stand and articulate a strong moral and scriptural response to the tragedy that is taking place in our nation.

"An Appalachian Dawn - Christians Took Their Town Back!"



"AN APPALACHIAN DAWN" - THE REMARKABLE REVIVAL IN KENTUCKY
"Manchester, City of Hope," Kentucky
Population 2,200
by Ben Mutti


         Isolated in the heartland of Appalachia, the city of Manchester, Kentucky, appeared to be the unlikeliest place for societal breakthrough to occur. Located in Clay County, any attempt to “change” the dysfunctional way of life was considered futile. With the decline of the coal and salt industry, and their best years seemingly behind them, a 1964 CBS news report gave Manchester the dubious distinction “Depressed City, USA.” Forty years later, Clay County still could not escape from its “backward” stereotype, being listed as the sixth poorest county in the United States.
         And that was not all! In 2001, the Drug Enforcement Agency included Manchester in a region listed as the “Painkiller Capital of America.” This notorious nickname did not bode well for a county that actually had more people residing in prison than people residing in the county seat.
         While Clay County's outcast image has always been a hard pill for the area to swallow, its outlaw image has always been widely renowned. In a TV exposé by the HistoryChannel on Clay's family feuds, it was reported that four local clans killed more than ten times the number of family members than those killed in the infamous Hatfield and McCoy rivalry. This prevailing mountain man mentality, along with a sectarian church mindset, furthered the notion that Clay County resembled the O.K. Corral. The community was devoid of all hope.
         That is until May 2, 2004, when 63 churches and 3,500 people united together as community catalysts to march against drugs. Like troops advancing upon a city, these civic pilgrims for progress joined together under the direction of church leaders who publicly repented before GOD for their lack of civic involvement. Their slogan was, "Get Saved or Get Busted!" Suddenly, a pulse could be felt; hope had been resuscitated. Many felt this climactic prayer event helped break the vice-like grip of drug addiction that had tormented daily life.  

         The following year, Manchester became the only area in the region where painkiller prescriptions actually decreased. Beyond that, drug arrests would increase by a staggering 300 percent. Where favoritism, fraud, and extortion were once the law of the land, government corruption would soon be uncovered. Within three years, public officials, including the mayor, the city supervisor, the assistant police chief, the 911 Director, the fire chief, the circuit court judge, a handful of city councilmen, county commissioners and county clerks, would all be exposed and jailed for racketeering, distributing drugs, and voter fraud.
         As newfound stakeholders in society, churches and citizens partnered together with law enforcement to root out this crime and corruption. In fact, a court watch program was initiated by the churches, and with the help of their Congressman, a local Jesus-based rehabilitation center was completed in 2008.
      As a result, a profound optimism had instantly been injected into everyday life. Local drug dealers soon began surrendering their lives to Jesus and getting delivered from drug addiction. This fresh adrenaline also caused high-ranking officials like the new mayor and the sheriff to begin advancing the kingdom cause of Christ in their respective spheres of influence.
      According to Sheriff Kevin Johnson, the church partnership with the police was “the best thing to happen to Clay County.” Furthermore, this uncommon collaboration, “Operation: Unite,” has become the model for the entire state.
         Consequently, in 2007, the city council voted to change the name of the city to “Manchester: City of Hope.” As a result, this obscure community has become a regional influence, receiving desperate calls from 49 different states, and five foreign nations, all soliciting Clay Countians for guidance in their battle against drugs. 

         Not only are students now being drug tested in school, Bible elective courses are also being offered in high school. Meanwhile, Clay County was chosen as having the model-reading program for children in the state in 2008, significant for a region traditionally plagued with high illiteracy rates.
         Remarkably, in the Fall of 2009, with bated - breath, the city announced that a recycling company would be coming to Manchester, bringing a breathtaking 1,400 new jobs; this despite the rest of the nation stumbling through a global recession.
         Last, but not least, located near the Kingdom Come National Park, Clay County now possesses one of the largest Rocky Mountain Elk populations in the country; and with turkey, bear, and deer populations making a comeback, a new campground and new bike trail accent a tourist industry on the upswing. Manchester city water was even chosen in 2008 as having the best tasting water in a statewide competition. In fact, the local water treatment plant is now selling “Hope Water” as a commercial product.
         With this unusual avalanche of events, there is no question that Manchester’s cup of blessing is running over. What seemed like a mountain that was insurmountable is now becoming possible with GOD. Ironically, a community once considered "behind the times" has now become a compelling story for our times.

CHILLING NEWS FROM EUROPE - RISING OF ANTI CHRIST IS NEAR!

CHILLING NEWS FROM EUROPE - RISING OF ANTI CHRIST IS NEAR!

This news from Europe is chilling. A secretive plot has been uncovered to establish a new powerful executive position with unlimited powers to rule over the EU. Some have referred it to being a position of "Emperor," which was envisioned by Napoleon. This position no doubt will be the one that the Anti Christ will soon fill. Additionally, the three nations of Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) are about to be "uprooted" from the EU. Both of these new events are shockingly parallel to Daniel chapter 2 and chapter 7. Jesus coming is closer than we think!!! Read Hal Lindsey's report at the bottom of this article. 

UK NEWS
"EU PLOT TO SCRAP BRITAIN"


Friday May 4, 2012

By Macer Hall EXCLUSIVE

SENIOR Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realize their dream of abolishing ­Britain, we can reveal.
A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.
The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union.

Tellingly, the UK has been excluded from the confidential discussions within the shady “Berlin Group” of Europhile politicians, spearheaded by German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle.
"This is a truly ridiculous idea that must never be allowed to happen" Euro-MP Paul Nuttall, of the UK Independence Party 

Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the European emperor envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages.
They are concerned that David Cameron’s coalition Government is doing nothing to prevent the sinister plot. The secret talks were uncovered by Independent Labour peer Lord Stoddart of Swindon.

“This is a plot by people who want to abolish nation states and create a United States of Europe,” he said.
“The whole thing is barmy. These people are determined to achieve their final objective.

Tory backbench MP Douglas Carswell said: “It doesn’t matter how you arrange the offices of these technocrats, they are useless at arranging our lives for us and they are not elected so they have no legitimacy.
“My worry is that the president will end up having the charisma of Van Rompuy and the economic management skills of Barroso.”
Euro-MP Paul Nuttall, of the UK Independence Party, said: “This is a truly ridiculous idea that must never be allowed to happen. It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roman Emperor.”

At present, the two senior EU bureaucrats, Mr Barroso and Mr Van Rompuy, are locked in a bitter power struggle to determine who is the true big cheese or “grand fromage” in Europe. Former Portuguese premier Mr Barroso, who heads the EU’s executive arm and was elected to his post by members of the European Union, is understood to resent the rival fiefdom of Belgian Mr Van Rompuy, who was chosen by the heads of ­government of EU member states to represent them.

Under the plan, a single figure would be elected by Euro-MPs to perform both roles.
Supporters of the move believe that the rival presidencies are undermining the EU’s ability to speak with a single voice. They argue that merging the two jobs will create a powerful European leader who is capable of pursuing the federalist dream of a united Europe which has been severely shaken by the eurozone crisis.
Lord Stoddart confirmed the existence of the plot thanks to a parliamentary written answer in the House of Lords. He asked Foreign Office ministers to reveal what they knew about the merger talks.
In response to his inquiry, Tory Foreign Office minister Lord Howell of Guildford said: “We are aware of one group of EU foreign ministers meeting on an informal basis to discuss a variety of issues related to the future governance of the EU.
While the UK is not part of that group, we understand that one idea under discussion is a merger of the positions of president of the European Council and president of the European Commission.”

Lord Howell added: “A merger of the two presidencies would create a potential conflict of interest, undermine the quality of the EU’s decision-making processes and upset the institutional balance within the EU.” Lord Stoddart said: “These sorts of informal discussions within the EU have a habit of rapidly being transferred into formal proposals.
“Since the Government is not party to these discussions, its reservations are academic.
“Such a merger would represent a massive shift of power into the hands of a single, unelected bureaucrat. The Government should be taking this far more seriously and voicing its objections very strongly.”
He added: “The holder of this new office would be both Europe’s political and administrative leader, giving them far more powers than those given to the US president.
“It really is a great disappointment that we have a Conservative-led Government that is supposed to be Eurosceptic yet ministers just go along with this.”

Is Rome Reviving?

Hal Lindsey

I have been watching for a very important Biblical phenomenon to take place in Europe for over fifty years. It is a key piece of a prophetic scenario that must take place shortly before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. In chapters 2 and 7 of his book, the prophet Daniel predicted the successive rise of four Gentile world empires. God through Daniel said that these would be the only world empires that would rise before the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of His kingdom over the earth. These kingdoms were Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece and Rome. However, the fourth Kingdom would not be conquered but fade from power until it is miraculously revived again and rule for a little over seven years. Daniel predicts that Rome revive again through the power of a Satan-possessed man that will unite the ten-nations out of the ruins of the old Roman culture and people. His Biblical name is the "Antichrist." Daniel interpreted the prophetic symbols concerning this prophecy: "Thus he said: The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth (Rome), which will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, OUT OF this kingdom (latterday Rome) ten kings will arise, and another (the Antichrist) will arise after them, he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings ..." (Daniel 7:23-24 NASB)

According to this prophecy, Rome would fade from power between verses 23 and 24. Then it would be revived again initially in the form of ten nations out of the culture and people of the old Roman Empire. I believe we are finally seeing the groundwork of that predicted revival of the Roman Empire. Just listen to some electrifying quotes out of a recent article about secret plans being made to change the EU: "Senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realize their dream of abolishing Britain." ... "Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the ‘European emperor' envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages." ... "It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roma Emperor." ... "Such a merger would represent a massive shift of power into the hands of a single, unelected bureaucrat ...The holder of this new office would be both Europe's political and administrative leader, giving him far more powers than those given to the US president."

You should read the entire article, but these key quotes reveal the purpose of planned actions that are right of the pages of Bible prophecy concerning the final stages of history before Christ returns. And even more important, they reveal that we are in the immediate general time of Christ secret coming to remove all true Christian believers some seven years before Christ's return to earth in an event known as the Rapture. The appointment of this new leader could be the beginning of the career of the antichrist. People will not fully realize it at the beginning stages. But he is the one that will bring together the revival of Rome and the beginning of the final seven years of this age theologically known as the Tribulation. The proposed removal from the EU of the UK composed of England, Ireland and Scotland could even possibly refer to the predicted removal of three nations in Daniel's above prophecy.

Folks, time is drawing short. It is time for all Christians to focus on bringing as many as possible to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. It is also time to seek to grow in our faith and stand for Truth of God's Word. Jesus died in our place and purchased a pardon for our sins. We must be sure that we have received that gift and turn to following Him.
