WHO IS ON the LORD´S SIDE?by David Wilkerson "Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord's side? Let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him" (Exodus 32:26). How would God crush the corruption in Israel? Who would He choose to be His instruments in a time of evil? Would angels come down and execute righteous judgment? Aaron and his sons had already corrupted themselves so who would God raise up to shine forth as His soldiers of holiness? Of all people, He chose the sons of Levi-sons of that murderer who, with his brother Simeon, had caused Jacob´s family to be shamed before the heathen. Simeon and Levi each took a sword and slew Shechem for raping their sister Dinah. They also killed his father Hamor and then took their sheep, oxen and donkeys, their wealth, and their wives and children. Oh, the matchless grace of God-to choose the most unworthy, the weakest of them all-to be His instruments. "All the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. . . . And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses" (Exodus 32: 26, 28). Perhaps there was something deep within them that said, "We will not fail God as our father did! We will not bring reproach on the name of our God; we will step out and take our stand with the Lord!" Moses had promised them, "God will reward you if you consecrate yourself and take a stand among your family, friends and brothers" (see Exodus 32:29). And God did reward them with a semi-priestly order called the Levites, who were given to the service of God´s house. Being on the Lord´s side is taking His sword and using it to combat the forces of unbelief, putting down all doubts and fears. It means standing true to God and His Word no matter what the crowd does; no matter how faithless our friends become; no matter how worldly our dearest loved ones are. We must step out and declare, "I am on the Lord´s side! I come out against all attacks on the majesty and faithfulness of our God!"

No First Amendment right of free speech for U.S. soldiers!
The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.
The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.
(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)
Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime--possibly resulting in imprisonment--for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)--whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.
This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not allow chaplains (or any service members, for that matter), to say anything about their faith that others say led them to think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life. It’s difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.
In response to the Pentagon’s plans, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC), said on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning:
It’s a matter of what do they mean by "proselytizing." ...I think they’ve got their defintions a little confused. If you’re talking about coercion that’s one thing, but if you’re talking about the free exercise of our faith as individual soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, especially for the chaplains, they I think the worst thing we can do is stop the ability for a soldier to be able to exercise his faith.”
FRC has launched a petition here which has already collected over 30,000 signatures, calling on Secretary Hagel is stop working with Weinstein and his anti-Christian organization to develop military policy regarding religious faith.
The FRC petition has now exceeded more than 40,000 signatures at the time of this update.

- “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” (Genesis 1:14)
- “ And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)
- “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. (Luke 21:25)
- "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes." (Joel 2:31)
I. THE COMING FOUR BLOOD MOONS: 2014 – 2015
Blood moons (lunar eclipses) have occurred at times throughout human history. A tetrad (four) consecutive blood moons (lunar eclipses) are unusual. However, blood moons occurring on Jewish high holy days are even rarer. When they occur, Jewish rabbis teach that God is warning that something very significant is about to happen to His chosen people, Israel. They also teach that solar eclipses are signs that divine judgment is about to fall on Gentile nations.
History gives detail to the events that occurred when four consecutive blood moons appeared on either the Passover of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). The following three tetrads occurred during these high holy days:
- 1492-93: In Spain, the final year of the bloody Inquisition was in full swing. Jews who refused to convert to Catholicism had their property confiscated; thousands were beaten, arrested or killed. Then, the Alhambra Decree ordered the expulsion of all remaining Jews who refused to convert. In 1492, an explorer named Columbus discovered a massive continent, later called America, which would become a safe-haven to millions of Jewish immigrants.
- 1948: After the horrors of the Holocaust, the Jews were given a homeland in the Middle East. Israel was reborn as a nation. The Jews were home again after 2,000 years.
- 1967-68: Israel was invaded on all sides by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and other Arabic armies. It appeared that the tiny Jewish State would be overwhelmed and destroyed. Miracle after military miracle occurred and the Jews destroyed the invading armies and took over the West Bank and the ancient city of Jerusalem. The Holy City was in their hands for the first time in almost 2,000 years.
- Passover April 15, 2014: The first of the four blood moons.
- Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) October 8, 2014: The second blood moon.
- Passover: April 4, 2015: The third blood moon.
- Feast of Tabernacles September 28, 2015: The fourth blood moon.
- Adar 29/Nisan 1 (beginning of the Jewish religious calendar) a solar eclipse will occur. This will be on March 20-21, 2015.
- Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets), the second solar eclipse will be on September 13, 2015.
The four blood moons of 2014-2015 foretell that something tremendous is about to happen to Israel. The two solar eclipses forewarn of events that will happen to Gentile nations.
II. THE SABBATICAL YEAR AND THE YEAR OF JUBILEE
The unprecedented lunar and solar eclipses in 2014-15 have additional phenomena added to them….the Sabbatical Year and the Year of Jubilee!
God prescribed a time of rest for man and the earth in the laws given to Moses long ago. God decreed that the 7th day of the week would be a Sabbath day of rest. The 7th year (Shmita) was to be a Sabbath rest year and the 7th Shmita (the 49th year) was to be a Sabbatical Year. The year following, the 50th year was to be the Year of Jubilee. During the Jubilee, all debts were to be cancelled, slaves set free and all land lost was to be restored.
History records the last Sabbatical year (49th year) occurred in 1965-66. The next year 1966-67, was the Year of Jubilee. During this Jubilee, Israel recaptured Jerusalem in the Six Day War!!
2014-2015 is the Jewish Sabbatical Year! 2015-2016 is the Year of Jubilee! With these added to the blood moons and the solar eclipses, God is sending a very BIG message to earth!
III. MORE SIGNS FROM HEAVEN!
There are additional heavenly signs added to the aforementioned phenomenal celestial events:
- On February 15, 2013, the closest asteroid in history zipped past the earth. Scientist state that the asteroid, referred to as 2012 DA14, had a diameter of approximately 45m and an estimated mass of 130,000 tons. Scientist labeled this event as “an incredibly near miss.” Impact with the earth would have been catastrophic.
- Also on February 15, 2013, a meteor exploded over Russia's Ural Mountains with the power of an atomic bomb, its sonic blasts shattering countless windows and injuring about 1,100 people. The meteor -- estimated to be about 10 tons and 49 feet wide -- entered the Earth's atmosphere at a hypersonic speed of at least 33,000 mph and shattered into pieces about 18-32 miles above the ground. Millions of dollars worth of damage was sustained by nearby cities.
- The comet “PanSTARRS” will made an appearance in the heavens and be visibly seen streaking through the skies during March 2013.
- One of the brightest comet in human history, will light up the skies beginning November 2013 through January 2014. It will be brighter than the moon and will be able to be seen in the day time. The last such bright comet occurred in 1680 AD. It is called an “event of a civilization,” unprecedented in human history!
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption is near!” (Luke 21:25)
God is sending a very powerful yet clear message….THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST IS NEAR! The climax of all prophecy is at hand.Ancient prophecies are nearing the time of fulfillment, including His Return. They are:
- The War of Obadiah, in which Israel will defeat and wipe out Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Hezbollah, Hamas, and other Arabic Moslem allies is imminent. Israel “will possess her possessions”- the majority of the Middle East with its massive oil reserves. (Book of Obadiah, Psalms 83, Isaiah 17)
- The Gog-Magog War, which will be Russia’s reaction to the War of Obadiah, will occur shortly after Israel’s victory over the Arabic Islamic alliance. Russia, Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, Libya and other allies will form a massive multi-million army to invade Israel. God will go to war on Israel’s behalf and destroy 5/6 of the invading armies and also those nations’ homelands. (Ezekiel 38 and 39)
- The Rise of the Anti Christ, the False Prophet and the One World Governmental and Religious System. A 7 Year Treaty of peace and protection will be signed by all nations, including Israel, with the Anti Christ. (Daniel 9:27)
- A world-wide persecution of believers in Christ will occur. (Luke 21: 12:18)
- Deliverance of the Remnant of Israel (Micah 2:13) (Zechariah 12: 1-14) (Zechariah 13:9)
- The Battle of Armageddon and the Return of Christ. (Zechariah 14: 1-21) (Luke 21:27) (Revelation 18:11-21)
A Warning - Get Ready!!!!!!!! (Luke 21:28-34)
28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
32 Truly I tell you; this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
34 Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.
35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.
36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
JESUS IS COMING!! GET READY TO MEET HIM!!

Pope Benedict Resigns - Papal Prophecy Points to the Final Pope - The False Prophet
Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday morning that he would be stepping down as the head of the Catholic Church, making him the first Pope to step down rather than die in the position in more than 600 years. A new pope will be selected by the end of March. There will undoubtedly be much speculation about who will take over the reigns of the Catholic Church, but one thing that we can look to for some guidance about who might be the the next pope are the infamous papal prophecies of St. Malachy. St. Malachy, the first Irish saint, had a vision of the next 112 popes. We've had 111 since, and are on the verge of seeing No. 112, which Malachy says will be the final pope before the Return of Christ. Malachy called this Pope "Peter the Roman." According to the prophecy, during his reign Roman, the city on seven hills, will be destroyed and the Great Judge will come to judge His people.
St. Malachy's prophecies concerning the last 111 Popes have been startling accurate. The 112th and final Pope many believe will be the False Prophet, who will usher in the Anti-Christ! Before Easter of 2013, the 112th Pope will be elected and take office!! Surely, we are at the End of Days and the soon return of Christ!!

Epidermal Electronics Tattoos The Next Step In ‘Human Evolution’
Not your regular colorful tattoo
“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
Tattoos, or 'epidermal electronics’, could be a regular feature at the surgery to monitor heart and brain functions, and could be used to enhance the body’s well-being
One day soon, your doctor might prescribe you something that looks like a colourful temporary tattoo. But when you apply it to your skin you’ll end up with more than an interesting pattern.
Your epidermis will be coated with a gossamer-thin layer of electronics. In the short term, this tattoo will be used to monitor your well-being. But in the long term it could be used to enhance your body as part of a remarkable new phase in human evolution, one foreseen by Edgar Allen Poe in the 19th century.
The immediate potential of these patches was outlined last month at the annual American Chemical Society meeting in San Diego, by Dr John Rogers of the University of Illinois.
He told the meeting that he sees these rub-on “epidermal electronics” as a new way for doctors to monitor patients. These skin patches can detect and record a series of signals to check the health of brains, hearts and muscles without tethering the owner to bulky machines using electrodes glued with gels and tape, or even needles.
The patches, encased in water-soluble plastic, are transferred to the skin just like a temporary tattoo-transfer, with a backing that peels off. Their wearers can’t feel them because they cling on to the skin by feeble electric forces between molecules (named van der Waals forces, after the Dutch physicist who first described them in 1873).
The latest patch developed by Dr Rogers’s team can both measure muscle activity and stimulate those muscles so they could be used for rehabilitation. But Dr Rogers envisages broader applications – from monitoring sporting performance to seeing how hydrated your skin is with solar-powered epidermal electronics.
These skin patches can detect and record a series of signals to check the health of brains, hearts and muscles without tethering the owner to bulky machines using electrodes glued with gels and tape, or even needles.
A giant step forward for cyborgs
What I find fascinating is the way that cyborgs have stealthily evolved on Earth. In popular culture, humans and machines are usually seen as separate, from the films of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the forthcoming movie Robot and Frank. They are often pitted against each other.
This summer will see the 100th anniversary of the birthday of the British artificial intelligence pioneer Alan Turing, and there will be much talk of his influential test of synthetic minds in which a “chatbot” is deemed intelligent if it can fool us into thinking that it’s human from its written responses (the “Turing test”).
Yet all the while, humans have steadily fused with devices such as pacemakers, contact lenses, prosthetics, insulin pumps and cochlear and retinal implants.
“For years, techno-futurists worried about a doomsday moment when electronic brains and robots got to be as smart as us,” said Dr Andrew Nahum, senior keeper at the Science Museum.
Researchers are now looking at exoskeletons to help the infirm to walk, and implants to allow paralysed people to control limbs. Some are even discussing how to enhance brain power by electronic plug-ins. And, of course, there’s now also the prospect of smart skin, thanks to the efforts of Dr Rogers’s team in Illinois.
Forget about the rise of cyborgs, or indeed the Borg of Star Trek and the Cybermen of Dr Who. Millions of cyborgs walk among us already. Within a few decades, it won’t be so easy to tell humans and machines apart. – Source – The Telegraph

"PRAYER AWAKENING IN SCOTLAND COUNTY, NC"
For the past eight months, pastors from seven Scotland County, NC churches have been meeting every Thursday at 8:30 AM to intercede for our country, our county and for the churches of our region. Additionally, many of these pastors have been gathering for the past 33 weeks for "Prayer on the Square" on Wednesdays at noon at the corner of Church and Main Streets in Laurinburg, NC.
Tired of the high crime rate, the shootings, the gangs, pervasive illegal drug trade and moral decline, members of these churches have joined with their pastors in a concert of prayer to intercede for the county. The prayer gathering began on Monday, December 31 at Northview Harvest Ministries. That week, the intercessors took turns meeting at East Laurinburg Baptist Church, East Laurinburg Pentecostal Holiness Church, Union Grove Baptist Church, Living Waters Church of God and Multitudes Church. This concert of prayer has entered the second week at the same churches. The services are completely directed by the Holy Spirit. People gather to pray as the Holy Spirit leads. Denominational lines and racial barriers have vanished as Christians have come together as the Body of Christ to pray. How wonderful it is to see African American, Caucasian, Native American and Latino Christians joining hands in prayer and fellowship.
A group of Christians in Adams, Tennessee has begun a similar prayer gathering after hearing about what is taking place in Scotland County, NC. A group in the United Kingdom has inquired about the Scotland County united prayer.
Prayer on the Square continues to grow along with the concert of prayer. For over eight months, faithful Christians have gathered on Wednesdays at noon to intercession.
Results to prayer have become visible. 30 drug leaders have been arrested and the gaming industry has been shut down in Scotland County!! The pastors and churches are committed to continue to pray until a great awakening sweeps through all and radically changes Scotland County.
