Alpha & Omega-Biblical Christianity for The Millennial Generation
Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.---Jesus is the Alpha and Omega- the Almighty!
Daniel 11:33. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
of NewsReal Blog, David Horowitz gave lecture at UC San Diego to combat the
‘Muslim Students Association’s Israeli Apartheid Week’, what some are referring
to ‘Hitler Youth Week’. During the question & answer portion of the talk,
David had an interesting and bone-chilling encounter with a member of the MSA.
He then went ahead to reveal the real intention of her visit to the meeting.
What happens in
this video is so chilling, it feels almost like its scripted and that it could
be in a movie. Wait for her last 2 words. They are stunningly racist and
As stated by
David Swindle over at NewsReal Blog, whats shocking is not the fact that she
holds the views but rather she is so willing to admit it.
chilling confrontation below:
This is the
reality of what’s happening in America currently. Not only is this happening in
America, but it has been happening for decades in the UK, which is the largest
growing muslim population currently (if you weren’t aware). We are in battle
with ‘Islamic Nazis’, as David Swindle calls them, who openly and constantly
call for another holocaust.
If you aren’t
convinced that is a totalitarian enemy that seeks to overtake the current
culture of America, you are living in a cave.
Wake up, America.
The enemy is at your doorstep. Fight vigilantly, and do everything with truth
and understanding. Do not fall for what liberals are calling ‘tolerance’.
‘tolerance’ is disarming what America stands for. Don’t just sit in disgust or
disagreements. Set aside politics and bad together to rid the world of evil
about politics, it’s about what’s right.
Islamic terrorist groups are
operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack
the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive
devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other
sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an
imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a
number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed
on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources
concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch
sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria
(ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested
narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so
rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel
warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few
Intelligence officials have
picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going
to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s
coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified
the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent
that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is
being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both
telephonic and in writing, about this information.
The disturbing inside
intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S.
intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks
approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these
terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama
admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put
the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week during a
White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports
suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than
what we currently are.”
The administration has also
covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along
the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions
of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually
ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re
“too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident”
of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of
Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern
border is “as secure as it has ever been.”
These new revelations are bound
to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.
Well why did the CIA put Saddam Hussein in power in 1963?, Why did the U.S. government back Saddam in 1980 when he launched a war of aggression against Iran, even though they knew that he was using chemical weapons? Why did the U.S. fund and arm Islamic extremists in Afghanistan against the Soviets?
There's a pattern here if you look closely. This is a tried and true geopolitical strategy.
Step 1: Build up a dictator or extremist group which can then be used to wage proxy wars against opponents. During this stage any crimes committed by these proxies are swept under the rug. [Problem]
Step 2: When these nasty characters have outlived their usefulness, that's when it's time to pull out all that dirt from under the rug and start publicizing it 24/7. This obviously works best when the public has no idea how these bad guys came to power.[Reaction]
Step 3: Finally, when the public practically begging for the government to do something, a solution is proposed. Usually the solution involves military intervention, the loss of certain liberties, or both. [Solution]
ISIS is extremely useful. They have essentially done Washington dirty work by weakening Assad. In 2014, while the news cycle has focused almost exclusively on Ukraine and Russia, ISIS made major headway in Syria, and as of August they already controlled 35% of the country.
The Obama administration has repeatedly insisted that this will never lead to boots on the ground, however, the truth of the matter is that anyone who understands anything about military tactics knows full well that ISIS cannot be defeated by airstrikes alone. In response to airstrikes ISIS will merely disperse and conceal their forces. ISIS isn't an established state power which can be destroyed by knocking out key government buildings and infrastructure. These are guerrilla fighters who cut their teeth in urban warfare.
To significantly weaken them, the war will have to involve ground troops, but even this is a lost cause. U.S. troops could certainly route ISIS in street to street battles for some time, and they might even succeed in fully occupying Syria and Iraq for a number of years, but eventually they will have to leave, and when they do, it should be obvious what will come next.
The puppets that the U.S. government has installed in the various countries that they have brought down in recent years have without exception proven to be utterly incompetent and corrupt. No one that Washington places in power will be capable of maintaining stability in Syria. Period.
Right now, Assad is the last bastion of stability in the region. He is the last chance they have for a moderate non-sectarian government and he is the only hope of anything even remotely resembling democracy for the foreseeable future. If Assad falls, Islamic extremist will take the helm, they will impose shari'ah law, and they will do everything in their power to continue spreading their ideology as far and wide as they can.
If the world truly wants to stop ISIS, there is only one way to do it: 1. First and foremost, the U.S. government and its allies must be heavily pressured to cut all support to the rebels who are attempting to topple Assad. Even if these rebels that the U.S. is arming and funding were moderate, and they're not, the fact that they are forcing Assad to fight a war on multiple fronts, only strengthens ISIS. This is lunacy.
2. The Syrian government should be provided with financial support, equipment, training and intelligence to enable them to turn the tide against ISIS. This is their territory, they should be the ones to reclaim it.
Now obviously this support isn't going to come from the U.S. or any NATO country, but there are a number of nations who have a strategic interest in preventing another regime change and chaotic aftermath. If these countries respond promptly, as in right now, they could preempt a U.S. intervention, and as long this support does not include the presence of foreign troops, doing so will greatly reduce the likelihood of a major confrontation down the road.
3. The U.S. government and its allies should should be aggressively condemned for their failed regime change policies and the individuals behind these decisions should be charged for war crimes. This would have to be done on an nation by nation level since the U.N. has done nothing but enable NATO aggression. While this may not immediately result in these criminals being arrested, it would send a message. This can be done. Malaysia has already proven this by convicting the Bush administration of war crimes in abstentia.
The Islamic Society of
North America (ISNA), the nation’s largest Muslim group, is holding its annual
convention this coming weekend in Detroit…just down the road from Dearborn, MI,
with a very heavy Arab Muslim population.
The reported keynote
speaker for this Muslim gathering will be none other than former President
Jimmy Carter, known for his cavorting with tyrants and dictators, as well as
his harsh criticism of Israel — so harsh that some have labelled Carter an
Among the convention’s
presentations is a session entitled, “Generations Rise: Elevating
Muslim-American Culture”, which is also the theme of the conference.
According to research
provided by discoverthenetworks.org, the ISNA has close ties with the Muslim
Brotherhood, an Islamist organization whose five-part
slogan is, “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the
Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake
of Allah is our wish.”
As author and terrorism expert Steven Emerson puts it, ISNA
“grew out of the Muslim Students Association, which … was founded by
Brotherhood members.” Indeed, Muslim Brothers would dominate ISNA’s
leadership throughout its early years, when the Society was highly dependent
upon Saudi funding.
The Independent Sentinel reports that other
convention speakers to address the gathering alongside Jimmy Carter will be:
Imam of The Islamic Center of America, will speak. An extremely influential
Shi’a religious leader, he openly supports Hamas and Hezbollah. He had a close
relationship with Ahmadinejad.
Zaid Shakir, former Muslim chaplain at Yale University, does not believe
Muslims can accept the legitimacy of the existing American order. He claims
that organizations like Hamas and al Qaida are pursuing legitimate objectives.
Dr. Jamal Badawi, a former Board of Directors member of The
Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.
Remember how Jimmy Carter was supposed to be a Christian? Still believe it?
without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to GOD must
believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek
Him.“ (Hebrews 11:6)
applies salvation with regeneration and in justification be energizing faith in
the believer. Faith is the channel through which GOD’s grace flows. It is the
means by which grace is appropriated. Faith brings delight to GOD and salvation
to mankind. By faith GOD is perceived and in faith the believer is pardoned.
are three virtues: “Faith, Hope, and Love”. Only love remains eternal. Faith is
that virtue making GOD’s love eternal in salvation. Both believing faith and
saving grace are gifts from GOD.
by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the
gift of GOD: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one
many be dead, much more the grace of GOD, and the gift by grace, which is
by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.” (Romans 5:15)
is that capacity of the human heart by which the nature of GOD, the gift of
salvation and the eternal purposes of the Almighty are understood. Faith is
embedded in hope and is the predecessor to sight. It envisions the impossible
and accepts the incredible. Faith is uniquely a human capacity but is naturally
rejected by the heart because of sin. Faith is the only key that will unlock
the release of making from the condemnation for his sin and that will grant
NEED FOR FAITH
first time the word faith is used in Scripture it is spoked by Moses as he
quotes GOD’s evaluation of Israel.
GOD said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall
be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.” (Deuteronomy 32:20)
Lord Jesus also described Hes generation as having no faith:
he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?” (Mark 4:40)
Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in GOD.” (Mark 11:22)
lack of faith results in the unlikeness of GOD and in the unhappiness of
Inability to live life with meaning…
that no man is justified by the law in the sight of GOD, it is evident: for,
The just shall live by faith.” (Galatians
Fear in life…
saith unto them, Why are ye
fearful, O ye of little faith? Then He
arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.” (Matt. 8:26)
Suffering and illness…
the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if
he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” (James 5:15)
Doubt and uncertainty…
answered and said unto them, Verily I
say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, yeshall not only do this which
is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed
, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.” (Matthew
Worry and anxiety…
said unto His disciples, Therefore
I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for
the body, what ye shall put on.The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider
the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor
barn; and GOD feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And
which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be
not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say
unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If
then GOD so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow
is cast into the oven; how much more will He clothe you, O ye of little faith?” (Luke
Weakness and loss of strength…
His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and
know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect
soundness in the presence of you all.” (Acts 3:16)
Hatred and absence of love…
in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but
faith working through love.” (Galatians
we through the Spirit wait for the hope of
by faith.” (Galatians 5:5)
Insecurity and shyness…
we have boldness and access with
confidence by the faith of Him.”
having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for
your furtherance and joy of faith.” (Philippians 1:25)
Loss of assurance…
us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies
washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:22)
Lostness toward GOD… (Ephesians 2:8)
by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is
the gift of GOD.” (Ephesians 2:8)
NATURE OF FAITH
are three kinds of faith:
Factual Faith: This form of faith depends on historic or
scientific data. It is a trust in what is evident or seen. Every person has
this kind of faith. Seeing is believing. Jesus said that Thomas had this kind
of faith. Jesus saith unto him, “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed….” (John
Temporary Faith: The faith is flawed because it does not
last. It flares up quickly but fails to endure. “Yet hath
he not root in himself, but endureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth
because of the word, by and by he is offended.” (Matthew
13:21) Judas probably had temporary faith even
though he was a disciple, chosen and commissioned. He preached and participated
in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout Israel but wavered in
his faith and betrayed the Lord, this can be found in Matthew chapter 10.
Saving Faith: Called
“the operation of GOD”
(Colossians 2:12), saving faith “justifies and redeems the believer” (Romans 10:17). It is more than an acknowledgement of the facts or the
recognition of GOD as Savior. The demons “believed” and
testified that “Jesus was the Son of
GOD” (Matthew 8:29). This faith, however, moves
beyond an initial response and an understanding of truth to commitment, “… for obedience to the faith…” as found in Romans 1:5.
The Source of Faith: The Word of GOD, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of GOD.” (Romans 10:17) “Many
heard the Word and believed.” (Acts
4:4) These Scriptures are the means by which GOD draws faith from the believer.
GOD’s inerrant Word communicates the completely adequate message to man. The
truth from GOD about mankind’s need for salvation and GOD’s free offer of grace
is mediated by the Word. Faith is born from the seed of the Word. Faith grows
as it feeds on the Word. Faith is established and continues steadfastly by the
The Substance of Faith: The formation of two responses by the believer:
First is Acknowledgement: To trust in GOD for salvation is
to distrust in mankind’s ability to save himself. GOD’s righteousness can be
appreciated only when compared to mankind’s unrighteousness… “Not having mine own righteousness,” Paul confessed in Philippians 3:9. Faith recognizes the
personal obligation of sin and in repentance turns from it… “… yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life whichI
now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God“ (Galatians 2:20). The
return to GOD begins with the recognition of the sinner’s offense to GOD. Jesus
explains it in the parable of the prodigal son, “And when he came to himself, he said , How many hired servants of my father’s have
bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to
my father,and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before
thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy
hired servants. And he arose , and came to his father. But when he
was yet a great way off , his father saw him, and had compassion , and ran, and
fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I
have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called
thy son.” (Luke 15:17-21). In the loss to self-confidence in any ability to save
himself, the stirrings of salvation begin. The sinner turns in faith to GOD,
who alone can save. (See Acts 4:12; 16:31)
b.) Appropriation is
the second response of faith in salvation. “He love me and He gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). Acknowledgement recognizes that “Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6). But
appropriation says, “GOD commended His love
toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Saving faith receives GOD’s gift of eternal life. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the
authority to become the sons of GOD”
(John 1:12). Thomas said, “My Lord, my GOD” (John 20:28). The
source of faith is the Word of GOD. The substance of faith is action.

How many days has President Barack
Obama been on vacation since assuming office in January 2009? How much has he
golfed? CBS News Correspondent Mark Knoller has the answers.
Since 1996, Knoller has kept
tabs on all kinds of presidential data — How many summits? With
whom? How many press conferences? — including how often the occupant of the
Oval Office at the time leaves the stifling (literally and figuratively)
climate of Washington to go on vacation. Successive White Houses have generally
found that when their numbers are at odds with the bearded and booming-voiced
reporter's figures, the official tallies are the ones that need correcting.
Knoller — who always notes that
presidents are never truly on vacation, given the demands of the job and the
era of 24/7 communications — graciously shared his latest data with Yahoo News.
So here it is:
As of Aug. 13, 2013, Obama is on his
15th vacation trip, covering all or part of 96 days total. He's spending this
vacation in Martha's Vineyard with his family.
At the same point in his presidency
— Aug. 13, 2005 — George W. Bush had made 51 visits to his ranch in tiny
Crawford, Texas, totaling all or part of 335 days. (Note: Bush sometimes used
the property to host world leaders.)
Bush also traveled seven times to
his family’s oceanside compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, covering all or part
of 26 days — bringing his total number of vacation days at this point in his
presidency to 349 days. (335+26 doesn’t = 349, but remember the “all or part
What about former President Bill
Clinton? At this point in his second term, he had taken 11 vacations covering
all or part of 84 days.
“The trips were mostly to Martha’s
Vineyard or Jackson Hole, WY. Though he also spent a few days in Hilton Head
for New Year’s and then to the Virgin Islands for a few days,” Knoller said in
And former President Ronald Reagan?
At this point in his second term he had made 29 trips to his ranch in
California, spanning all or part of 180 days.
None of these figures includes
visits to Camp David, the presidential retreat outside Washington, which
Knoller does not consider vacation.
What about golf? Obama has played
two rounds thus far on this vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, bringing his total
to 135 rounds as president so far.
He has played 60 rounds at Andrews
Air Force Base just outside Washington, D.C. — the home of Air Force One. He
has played an additional 31 rounds at Fort Belvoir in nearby Virginia. Obama
has played 18 rounds each in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard, “and a few others
along the way,” according to Knoller.
