What do they know? Mega-rich preparing for disaster

Pastor, Author - Carl Gallups - Interviewed

In an ominous sign for social stability, it's the mega-wealthy who have become the most enthusiastic "preppers." The left-wing Daily Beast reports affluent European elites are turning to bodyguards in response to a rash of high-profile street crimes and terrorist attacks. The rich are also in the vanguard of a new wave of interest in survival…

Trump Fired before Inauguration?

Faculty Row's expert on government election law, David A. Schultz, says there is chance that the electoral college will say "No Trump" when they meet on December 17th, 2016. Schultz has accurately predicted the last seven presidents, including the Trump.


Donald Trump was elected President to the surprise of many. But it is not too late to reverse this outcome.


In a recent Huffington Post article, Schultz declares that it would not be unprecedented for the electoral college to cast their votes independently. “In voting independently,” he said, “the electors would be using their positions to vote in line with the sense of the people—in this case, following what the majority voted this past November, which is to make Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.”


To understand why the presidential race was effectively reduced to only ten states, see Schultz's recent book with Stacey Hunter Hecht,  Presidential Swing States: Why Only Ten Matter.


“So why should the electors not do what can and should be done, which is legal and ethical within the framework of the existing model, and vote for the popular candidate?”


David Schultz is a Professor at Hamline University’s Department of Political Science, where he teaches classes in public administration and state and local government. He also teaches election law, state constitutional law, and legal ethics at the University of Minnesota Law School.

by Rev. Joda Collins.

The majority of men along with a growing percentage of women are habitually involved in sexual impurity.   All current studies of human behavior testify to these sad realities.   Sexual impurity involves addiction to (the habitual viewing of) photography, the acts of homosexuality, bestiality, pedophilia, rape and such things.  
How does someone who is involved in habitual sexual impurity rid themselves of that lifestyle?
Step 1: Desire to be rid of that lifestyle. 
Until and unless a person wants to be clean, he or she will not be clean.  As the proverb goes, "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink."  If you do not want to be delivered from sexual sins, then you will live in those sexual sins until the day you die and you will pay the price every day of your life for doing so; every sin receives a correlating punishment (Hebrews 2:2, 12:6-8).   If that is what you want, that is what you get.
" often would I have gathered (you for protection and blessing)... (but) ye would not (allow me)!  Matthew 23:37, KJV. (Parenthesis mine; not part of the verse, but implied.)
Step 2:  Understand that it's going to take a lot of work to be rid of that lifestyle.
"...always obey...(God) out your own salvation (from sin) with fear and trembling."  Philippians 2:12, KJV.  (Parenthesis mine.)
Every addiction takes a lot of work to overcome.  That is why it is called an addiction.  Every once in a while God delivers someone from an addiction with very little effort on their part, but it does not happen often and it never happens against a person's will.  For most of us, we are delivered only after a lot of hard work. Deliverance (success) does not happen overnight, in a week or in a month.  Be satisfied to make progress all of the time.  Like most sickness, it takes time to experience full recovery. Do not give up!
Step 3:  Stop justifying sexual impurity. 
The devil did not make Eve eat of the forbidden fruit. She chose to do so.  Eve did not make Adam eat of the forbidden fruit.  He chose to eat it.  It is human nature to blame someone else or something else for our sins.  It is not the devil's fault, your parent's fault, societies' fault, your bosses' fault or fate's fault that you are a fornicator.  It is your fault.  Be an adult and own your responsibility.  
"The serpent deceived me," she replied. "That's why I ate it."  Genesis 3:13b, NLT.
 "It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and (she's why) I ate it."  Genesis 3:12b, NLT.  (Parenthesis mine.)
Yes, you were born with a tendency to sin. So, was I.  Everybody was, is and will be.  However, just because a person is born with a desire to kill you, does not justify killing you.  Grow up!   If you are a sexual deviant, it is your fault.
Step 4: Identify the external contributors to your sexual impurity.
The major contributors are:
     A.   A rejection of the presence of God and the Word of God.
     B.   Experiences forced upon you.
     C.   Allowing your mind and/or eyes to dwell on sexual filth.
     D.   Believing the lie that you are not responsible.
     E.   Believing the lie that if it feels good, it is right to do it.
     F.   Justification.
Every one of the above concepts has Bible verses to support it; however, we are all experienced sinners and we do not need a Bible verse to know these things are true.
Step 5: Confess our sins to God. 
If we confess (name every one, one at a time) our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins (that we know about and name), and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (including the sins that we are unaware of at the time).  1 John 1:9, KJV.  (Parenthesis mine; intended as commentary.) 
To confess means that we name it and claim it.  We name (identify) our sin one at a time to God and we agree with God that what we have named are sins.  Second, we claim (own) our sins.  We accept the responsibility for our thoughts and deeds.  There is a difference between a generic confession that we are sinners and confessing an itemized list of our sins.   The first is easier but brings little or no spiritual cleansing.  The second is hard work, but the only way to spiritual cleansing.   Believe me, if there was another way, I would have found it. 
Step 6: Be filled with the Spirit and walk in the Spirit.
" not drunk with wine...but be filled with the Spirit...."  Ephesians 5:18, KJV.
"Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh." Galatians 5:16, KJV.
Drunkenness brings a lack of self-control to body and mind; we are out of our own control and given over to base thoughts and base behaviors. To be filled with the Spirit means that we are no longer slave to our base thoughts and actions, but we are under the strong influence (control, but not robotic control) of the Spirit (person and power) of God; a willing and capable slave to (servant of) our gracious Lord.
The fastest, best, easiest and probably the only way to be filled with the Spirit is to read and study the Bible a lot, pray a lot, make ample use of 1 John 1:9 and stay under the preaching of the Word.  Walking in the Spirit means to maintain the filling of the Spirit.  It isn't always easy, but God is very kind and rewards every effort with blessing beyond our effort. Those who try it know this is true.
Step 7: Run away from sexual temptation immediately rather than entertain it for one second.  "For she (the harlot, and by implication "lust") hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.  Proverbs 7:26, KJV.  (Parenthesis mine.) 
No man is strong enough to play around with sexual impurity and remain free from it.  It cannot be done no matter how strong or spiritual a person you are, how hard you try or how much you love Jesus.  Run away from sexual temptation.  "Joseph...ran...."  Genesis 39:12.  "So run...."  1 Corinthians 9:26, KJV.  ("Joseph...ran.  So run...." is a play on words ad not a contextual comparison of both verses.)   

There is a law of gravity. No matter how holy you are, if you jump off a rooftop, the a law of gravity will take you down.  The Apostle Paul wrote, "...I see me into captivity to...sin...."   That law, as it applies to sexual sin, is if you do not run from it fast you will surely fail no matter how holy you are, as surely as you will fall under the law of gravity.

So, take heart!  Your failure in sexual purity is not related to a lack of love for your Lord, but a lack of staying away from the temptation.   "Stay away from sexual sins. Other sins that people commit don't affect their bodies the same way sexual sins do...."  1 Corinthians 6:18, GWT.   Sexual sins satisfy a pleasure center in the brain in a way that no other sin does. In layman's terms, with each satisfaction that pleasure center enlarges and demands more sexual sin to satisfy it.  file:///C:/Users/PC/Downloads/Your_Brain_on_Porn_%E2%80%93_2016-1.pdf
If you do not like steps above, God has other methods to deal with sexual addiction.
Humiliation:  You will get caught!
"But if ye will not...(repent), behold...your sin will find you out.'  Numbers 32:23, KJV.  (Parenthesis mine.)   While "your sin will find you out" is not exactly the same as "others will discover your sins," it is very close. In most cases, when our sin eventually finds us out, others soon find out about our sin.  

Sickness and Death:  The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) and, typically, the first step in death is sickness.  (Not all sickness is due to sinfulness.)  When we play around with sin, things of beauty die all around us and inside of us. (Not all loss is due to sinfulness.)

News conference called on Obama's birth certificate

With President-elect Donald Trump widely expected to turn back many of President Obama's progressive executive actions and legislation, a shadow from the past has reappeared that may also impact Obama's legacy: his birth certificate. WND has learned that a news conference has been scheduled for Dec. 15 to make public the final conclusions of the investigation…



"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalms 100:4, KJV.

Gates designate the property line. The court is the inner room or rooms where the property owner is often found.  There are several applications to the word gates and court that we might imagine, but for now let us determine the gate is the property line of your church and the court is the worship center.

Have you ever gone to church without giving God thanks? Have you ever entered the worship center without praise and blessings for God from your lips or in your heart?  I am ashamed to say that I have.  Did you know that is a sin?  The Bible commands that we enter his property with thanksgiving and his presence with praise and blessing.  Praise means to be aware of and acknowledge his holiness and greatness. Blessing means to be positive towards.

When we are young our parents taught us to say "thank you" when someone did something nice for us.  Saying thank you to God is easy considering all he has done, is doing and will do for us.  So, do that.  Next Sunday, when you drive onto the church property say to God (aloud or silently), "Thank you, God."  When you step into the worship center say to God (aloud or silently), "I praise you, God -- and I bless your name."   During the worship service let God know you are thankful and give him praise (an expression of your awareness of his holiness and greatness) and blessing (a positive attitude towards God). 

You will be surprised how much more you will receive from God during that service.  Obedience brings blessings. 

"..prove (test) me...sayeth, the Lord...(and see) if I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing...."  Malachi 3:10.  (Parenthesis mine.)

Urgent Prayer: Brush Fires Blaze Out of Control Throughout Israel

Urgent Prayer:
Brush Fires Blaze Out of Control Throughout Israel, Over Seventy thousands Evacuated


Over 70,000 flee massive fires raging across Zikhron Ya'akov, Haifa, Hadera, Modi'in Jerusalem.

Buildings consumed in several locations; neighborhoods cleared; over 1000 treated for injuries; children and elderly treated for trauma shock, Holocaust Survivors are trembling, over 173 cars burned thousands homes are destroyed; and the list goes on and on. It is like a WAR here in Israel.  

Israeli police confirms that fires are 'Terrorists' attacks.

Messiah Israel Ministries will be comforting the people of Israel with the love of Yeshua. Please stand with us in prayer.

Isaiah 40:1 -
"Comfort, O comfort My people," says your God.

The Word instructs us to care for THE NEEDY IN THEIR DISTRESS.

In the Book of Romans the Apostle Paul instructs the Gentiles to send material offerings to Jerusalem in order to repay a DEBT that the Gentiles have towards the Jews for receiving all spiritual blessings from them! Indeed from the Jewish People Gentiles have received the Bible, The Messiah, The Gospel and the 12 Jewish Apostles! Everything that matters spiritually came from Israel to the nations!

We see these $200 VOUCHERS as an important seed to repay that debt.

Romans 15:26-27 -

26 For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem. 27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things.

This is the Heart of the Father in Heaven towards them and with our money and prayers we can represent His Heart to them saying "thank you Israel for giving us the Messiah" and now "We give His Love in a practical way back to you".

The Word of God says that Righteous Giving delivers from death. (In the English it says Righteousness but in the Hebrew it means Righteous Giving).  

Proverbs 11:4 -

"Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death."



(The Full Amount goes to the needy families).

GOD has called us TO STAND WITH ISRAEL: "And I will bless those who bless you," (Gen. 12:3)
