Note: This is the entire nine page article taken from our newsletter. The article is entitled “THE DIRGE”.
I have not written anything in almost one year.
My silence has helped my spiritual eyes to see more accurately and unplug my spiritual ears to be more acute as to what is really going on.
There once was a beautiful maiden who hailed from England. She was a rare sight. Although she had an arduous past she managed to accomplish much in a rather brief period of time. She had compassion and was determined to right wrong. She was indeed a leader others could follow and they did for years. She blazed a path for righteousness even when it wasn’t popular. She was a lady of both inward and outward beauty who was not afraid to stand alone for the sake of morality. She was known as a Christian far and wide; she soared like an eagle.
One day she didn’t feel well. In the infancy of her sickness she attempted to do whatever she could to feel better, but over the course of time she grew somewhat accustomed to feeling sick, in fact the longer she felt this way the more accustomed she became to it. More time passed and the lady grew sicker, but part of her felt better in a lewd and wanton way. She began to think differently. One day she noticed a little bump on her face and she didn’t like the way it looked, but the longer it stayed and the more it grew the more she accepted it. Now the truth was it was a grotesque and hideous tumor protruding out of her face. This salient mass was like a serpentine proboscis marring the face of what once was beautiful, almost alluring. It was far worse than just destroying her outward beauty for it would eventually bring about her death. The tumor was an outward sign of what was taking place inside the lady. More time passed and her death was imminent, but when she was basically on life support, she still managed to muster up enough strength to sit up and to reach out and grab a mirror so she could behold the reflection of her tumor. She adored her tumor. She was much more than infatuated with it; she was romantically in love with her oozing proboscis. It’s all she thought about; she embraced it and became one with it. She attempted to embellish it with expensive make-up and costly perfume.
Her tumor was all and in all. It was sovereign! It was absolute! It was all knowing. It not only ruled and governed the lady but ruled and governed itself, for this hideous mass of tissue was in fact autonomous. The lady worshipped her tumor and it was paramount to anything else in her life. Many agreed with the lady that her tumor was indeed beautiful, and they too embraced the tumor, but several saw it for what it was - ugly, disfiguring, and gross. They attempted to warn the lady of her condition and that the tumor from hell must be removed or she will surely die. But the lady claimed her prognosis was spurious and unfounded. She remained intransigent like the Emperor, in the classic fairy tale, written by Hans Christian Anderson, entitled: ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes”. The Emperor headed a procession through the kindgom totally naked until a small child cried out, "But he has nothing on!" The crowd realized the child was telling the truth, but the Emperor, however held his head high and continued the procession.
More and more tried to warn the lady - Please remove the tumor it is destroying you. We implore you!!!! Get this poison out of your life while there is still time - so little time.
But the lady gave a wicked laugh and told the others to get out of her life. She only wanted the tumor. You could hear it coming from outside the window, it was the slow lamented sound of the dirge.
Yes, her condition was terminal, but her coup de grace was not the consumption of too much of the tumor’s toxin or its growing invasion, but her refusal to accept the cure.
I have been writing metaphorically. The past 651 (count them) words simply depicted America as the lady, sin as the tumor, and of course the cure is Yeshua (Jesus) who not only expunges, eradicates all sin from our lives by His blood, but is our only hope in general. America once was a beautiful nation, a nation who honored the God of the Bible, the Hebrew Bible that is, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Yet today, she is in love with sin and the wages of sin is death!
The word dirge is a Middle English word that denotes lamenting. It is a funeral march. Do you hear the dirge playing? It been playing its mournful sound for years. Trumpets have been sounded, many have tried to raise the standard and warn America, but she has not heard, she continues in her somnambulism. America did not hear the trumpets, perhaps she does hear the dirge, but is so rapped up in her denial she is merely trying to keep time to its slow mournful beat. Like the naked Emperor, who proceeded down the streets of the kingdom thinking he was fully clothed, America has chosen to continue in the procession of deception on a road leading to hell, while all along sinking deeper in this deadly and sordid love affair with not only sin, but satan himself.
While the dirge continues to play, America plays with sin she adores it and has in fact made sin her god.
I have never before sensed the chilling warning I believe I am now hearing from God. Because of our rebellion, because of our love affair with satan and all his children we are going to finally experience God’s wrath as never before. You see, it’s not that we merely sin, which is grievous and breaks God’s heart, but we flaunt our sins in His Holy Face and demand our rights to commit the grossest type of rebellion.
Many in the Church stand mouth agape wondering how we got to where we are. It is because of the over indulgence in compromising. When you mix the colors of white and black you get gray. Over the past several decades pastors have rationalized sin, weakened its result, and the outcome has homogenized sin and righteousness. Society or an individual does not crumble in a day – it’s a process. Church leaders’ putrid political correctness and their weakened social gospel have managed to create a solution of “gray matter theology”, that at best has starved the hearers for the real meat and nutrition of the word, and at the worst has inflicted the same deadly poison I have been writing about.
Things happen little by little so they are seldom noticed. We accept things we would not have accepted years ago. I remember the first time I attended a movie on a Sunday. Although I believe we are to observe the Biblical Sabbath, back then it was certainly Sunday. I was about thirteen when I stood between the concession area and the theater itself, feeling so guilty and ashamed. I remember the very first time I saw a young girl smoke a cigarette, and I remember the first time I heard a teacher use a swear word; I was shocked - the word was “damn”. I remember our preacher asking the ladies if they had changed from shorts to a dress when he came by for a Sunday afternoon visit. I still remember some of the ladies looking embarrassed as they glanced down at the floor. So the tide has slowly turned and now we are in a flood of filth. Things start out so little and innocent. But here we are today. Satan has hit us hard. There are many who have followed the Lord for years who are bewildered, as they helplessly stand by watching their country imploding. They are incapable of doing anything about it because of their own implosions.
If Obama is elected in November the words from a past dictator are servicing from the past.
America has fallen from her original place in history. There was no dirge playing then. We certainly had our sin, slavery being a gross and cruel one. But leaders were real and they spoke of their faith. During the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin, proclaimed: "I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth - that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?" If today, a public school teacher were to say something similar he or she would be reprimanded if not fired. We have blasphemed this God of whom Franklin so proudly spoke. The truth remains that Franklin was right; God does intervene in lives of nations and individuals. Yet we have kicked God out of our public schools and the public square.
The morning of September 11, 2001 should have been a wake up call for America. It wasn't! A few people did rise up, but soon were in deep slumber again. We took an overdose of a sleeping agent and it was laced with a toxin. Now we are awake again, at least some of us, due to the current economic crisis. However, that same toxin, that same pathogen, still runs through the veins of our government inebriated with power, through the veins of the average American, inebriated with pleasure and perversion, and through the veins of the church itself, inebriated with prosperity and a homogenized gray gospel. We are reaping the whirlwind, and unless we the citizens of "Blameville" wake up and point the finger at ourselves and then REPENT, we are dead; America must repent! This is what is really going on here. We have crossed over the line and we may have reached the point of no return. Many, especially men who are currently in leadership, have sunk to a new low, transfixed in front of their computer screens, stoned on pornography. Pedophile Priests and Perverted Pastors, with their ideologies of greed, corruption, and super egos have produced a desecrated gospel. This desecrated gospel is good news only to satan and his followers. People in general have been held captive by the diurnal activities of life, they are imprisoned by routines so confining, and it’s a sin. Things, not God, have become priorities; and these things in themselves have become gods, and that is sin!
In my opinion the current financial crisis is due to a planned scheme by the leftist liberals. They deliberately loaned money to disadvantaged individuals. What vexes me is that we are buying out banks, loans, etc. - this is pure socialism. The leftist liberals want to destroy this country! Certainly this current economic crisis has proven one thing: Mess with our money and you get our attention. Why? Because it is our god!
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. Matthew 6:24
We as believers must keep our priorities straight! Whenever money is our god and we use it for our security, then our chances of real survival are rendered null and void!
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you Matthew 6:33
While America has slowly taken in the poison of sin since her conception, it’s only been in the last fifty years that she has increased her dosage. Her real downfall began in the sixties when we not only sinned, but began to do it with a proud look. The left agenda was birthed not only in the streets but in the courts as well
It was in 1967 that Republican John Love, (of all names) signed a bill that made abortions legal in the State of Colorado. But in 1973, in one of its most horrendous decisions, the Supreme Court declared abortion to be legal nationwide.
I remember when it was declared illegal to have publicly led prayers in schools. Over the past decade or so the educational system has “dumbed down” its standards, and down-graded its morals. Our schools are in shambles academically, and are rapidly becoming dens of iniquity.
This mind-set gave birth to another sin that has assisted in the implosion of this nation, and that is the gay agenda. The two sins, homosexuality and abortion, serve as blatant reminders of how we have deviated from our original destination.
There are evil demented individuals who are determined to overthrow the United States. Not all terrorists are Islamic; some grew up in this country and have traded their protest sandals of the Sixties for dress shoes of today, but their goal is the same – overthrow America.
Listen! Listen! It is playing its mournful and chilling call - Announcing the death of America.
Wake up Black America
Blacks have been snookered more than any race, especially in the past thirty-five years. Your so-called leaders have led you to the gas chamber of old, like the Jews of the forties. You’re breathing in the poison. You’re back on the plantation with evil slave owners.
In 1857 the Supreme Court ruled in the famous Dred Scott case that Negroes were not, and could never be, citizens. The black American in those days was simply considered a piece of the white man’s property.
In 1973 the Supreme Court of the United States basically ruled that any unborn baby, regardless of his or her skin color, was not only a non-citizen, but also non human; and therefore could be murdered at the mother’s discretion.
Since Roe Vs Wade in 1973 we have murdered 50 million babies and one third have been black. That computes to 16 million black babies murdered by their mothers and doctors. Let’s do the math: If each of the aborted black babies had lived and had 2 children of their own that computes to 48 million blacks that would have been. Twice as many African American babies die from abortion as from aids, accidents, violent crime, cancer and heart disease combined. Planned Parenthood is the largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States, and 60% are located in minority neighborhoods. Every three days more African American babies die from abortion than in the entire Klu Klux Klan history. A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby. Obama, the man so many blacks are going to vote for, even goes beyond the demented Planned Parenthood on abortion. He is a savage, draconian beast when it comes to killing the unborn!
I ask you, my black bothers and sisters? Is the dirge playing your song? Not only yours, but ours as well! We whites are just as guilty of brutally murdering our babies as blacks. It has been whites, like Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who have set things in motion to make such a sin even possible. We all must fall on our faces and repent!!! Listen! Listen! The dirge is playing! When we murder the helpless, we murder ourselves by destroying our legacies and the moral fiber that holds this country together.
When I was in high school, I worked part time after school at a gas station. - They were called service stations back in the mid-sixties. We washed wind-shields, checked the oil, water, tires, etc. The small group I worked with had a nick-name for me - it was “nigger lover”. Why? Because I treated everyone with respect, including the blacks who bought gas there. I saw and spoke of the injustices that were prevalent in our city and country! I was the butt of a lot of jokes. I can remember the separate water fountains. I was considered a liberal when it came to race relations. Remember, I grew up in the sixties I implore you, my black brothers and sisters: stop murdering your babies! You are making sure you stay in the minority. The so-called black presidential candidate is going to be the main slave owner. Margaret Sanger was a white racist, and many of you are still marching to her drum - beat of death.
The blood of 50 million babies is crying out from all races, and that blood is on the hands of many! We are held captive by our sins, no matter what sin it is. If we want to be truly emancipated, we must repent and be washed in the blood of the Lamb!
If we elect Obama, we will have elected a most evil man; I believe the most evil by far!!! If we elect Obama we would have an "Obama-nation", which would certainly be an abomination. I do not comprehend how anyone who calls himself a Christian can even remotely think of voting for this individual. While no one man can save us, one man can certainly help bring about our demise.
I have never been excited about John McCain; in fact he was my second to last choice, of all the Republican candidates. He’s a type of a political prostitute, but this time I picked the harlot over the evil one. McCain has a lot of minuses, but he made a wise choice in picking Sarah Palin. Actually, Duncan Hunter was my first choice, not because of his last name, but because of the moral fiber woven through his entire ideology and platform. However, this election is much broader than McCain or his VP pick.
We as Christians have responsibilities to be good citizens. I speak with all urgency: If you vote for Obama you have conspired with satan himself. I say again - no one man can save us; it’s ludicrous to even think so - but one man can help bring us down. Obama and his sordid friends and cohorts will pave the way to our death. Christians need to be informed and not stand around singing the worn out song of Obama: “We need a change, we need a change.”
A young man in Cuba, many years ago, also talked about change, and he did bring change. His name is Fidel Alejandro Castro. He brought change - from bad to worse. Obama will bring change!
He will change a country that is need of repair to a country beyond repair.
According to the Federal Election Commission filings, Obama has received more than $524,000 in illegal donations from Palestinians living in Gaza. Gaza is a hot bed of Hamas terrorists.
A few months ago Obama’s former church, Trinity United Church of Christ, of which he was a member for twenty years, honored the notorious Louis Farrakhan by bestowing upon him their highest social achievement award.
Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. who presided over Obama’s wedding and was his pastor for twenty years fully endorses Farrakhan. Farrakhan, who is a racist and a machinator through and through is one of America’s most dangerous spokesmen for evil as demonstrated by his spewing out the most vicious racist rhetoric since the fall of the Third Reich. But he at least is not covert in his hatred for America, Israel, and Christianity like I believe Obama is. Farrakhan, in my opinion makes David Duke look like Mother Teresa!
This is what Farrakhan had to say this year at the National Islam Saviors Day about Obama.
"He is the instrument that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why he has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. That's a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking."
While Obama receives plaudits and accolades from men like Farrakhan, we will be the recipients of the chilling results from such rhetoric.
In spite of Obama's claims to the contrary, he had a close working relationship with former Weathermen terrorist leader, William Ayers. I remember the Weathermen- the former Students for Democratic Society (SDS), mutated into the Weathermen. The two, Ayers and Obama, served with each other on the board of a hundred-million-dollar education foundation. The records also show Obama's and Ayers' foundation granted money to radical leftist activist causes. These activists, these terrorists, murdered folks – these were not nice people, but candidate Obama embraces these and others. His grandiloquent and assuaging voice cannot assuage the evil that lies within! Barack well may be elected, but not by his evil backers, for their numbers are not that large, but he will be elected by the un-informed, the “sound-bite” majority, and the ignorant.
No matter how bad the individual may be if he can give us financial security, whether he be demon or a god, we will embrace him with open arms.
I believe that this entire economic disaster is devised by the leftists to put Obama in office. This entire disaster is a planned terrorist attack, and I think the terrorists are not only Islamic, but so-called Americans from the radical left. I look for the economy to drastically improve for awhile, especially if Obama is elected, but be warned: that time will be short-lived and the bottom will fall out as never before! People are afraid. They are no longer afraid of being hurt or killed from terrorists, which is a very real concern, but many are afraid of losing their money.
Obama is closely involved with ACORN. ACORN is an acronym that stands for: “The Association of Community Organizations for Reform”. ACORN evolved from the “The Welfare Rights Organization” (NWRO), which was a leftist sixties radical group whose members in the late 1960s and early Seventies invaded welfare offices across the U.S. They were violent. They would burst into welfare offices often bullying social workers and demanding every penny to which the law “entitled” them. These and other groups were associated with the radical group called: “Students for Democratic Society” or the SDS which later evolved into the notorious Weathermen. Voter fraud is ACORN’s specialty. If Obama can’t get elected legally, by the left and the stupid, ACORN will make sure he is elected illegally.
But if Obama is elected we will have elected the most evil man in our history!!!. The Clintons certainly had an evil global agenda but their main agenda was the promotion and amplification of themselves, Obama’s agenda is much more sinister! Obama is a socialist, but that is only the beginning of what's behind his mask!
The words from the past are taunting us even as you read this newsletter. Those words will certainly come to fruition if Obama is elected in November. In 1962 Russian Premier Krushchev said, "We can't expect the American people to jump from capitalism to Communism but we can assist their leaders by giving them small amounts of Socialism until they awaken one day to find out they have Communism." He also said that Communism would take over America "without firing a shot." Krushchev was not a prophet, at least not a prophet of God, but he certainly spoke the truth in 1962 and we are going to see those words only taunt us but manifest themselves during the Obama administration.
Obama'a whole name is, as most people know, Barack Hussein Obama, and he very well may be our next president. Perhaps he is who we deserve: Barack Hussein Obama, the wicked king of Babylon. Perhaps it is “that one” God will use to bring America to her knees.
I could write about his Muslim ties, and sordid socialist schemes, but the best thing I can do for Obama is not only oppose him, but pray for him. I urge all of you to do just that!
Is God going to bring us down? Is He really going to judge us? He certainly will if we refuse to repent, and He will use our very enemies to bring that about.
“Though you build high like the eagle, though you set your nest among the stars. From there, I WILL BRING YOU DOWN,” DECLARES THE LORD!!! Obadiah 4
Listen! Listen! The dirge is playing its mournful and chilling call. Announcing the death of America
Because of us demanding our right to blatantly sin, God is going to demonstrate His right to judge us. He will use countries who hate the United States and men who want to destroy this country to bring about His purpose.
No one man can save us but one man along with his evil and corrupt “powersters” can reduce us to the point where we are a third world country or no country at all! We must realize God can and will use anything or anyone to accomplish His purpose. We as a nation have sinned and we are experiencing the results.
Many of us have been wounded by the arrows of satan - we have been hit in various places, some in our Achilles heel. Many of us have been wandering around, disconcerted; his arrows have left us either frozen in mediocrity, gasping for air in the ditch of despair, or dead.
If America continues down this road of immorality, if we continue to murder the unborn, if we continue to destroy the family via same sex marriages, if we continue to embrace false gods like Allah and false religions like Islam, and if we turn our backs on the nation of Israel, then we have sealed our fate. We will hear the dirge as never before!
What are we to do? The enemies are not just at the door but in the living room. What is the Christian man or woman to do? During the First World War when Marshal Foch was being hard pressed on the western front, he wrote the following report to General Joffre: “My right is broken, my left is shattered, my center is in retreat. The situation is excellent; I shall attack.” This unexpected course of action took the enemy by surprise and it became a turning point in the war.
Once I wrote a three-part article entitled: Do You Believe – I Mean Really Believe? All through the articles I asked the question: “Do you believe, I mean really believe? Do you believe Him and believe in Him?”
Now I ask the question, do you love Him? – Do you really love Him? Do you love Him with all you heart, soul, and mind? Please don’t just skim over the question - Do you love God with everything you have? LORD I love you more than my sin! Do you? Do you keep His commandments? Or do you pick and choose?
Perhaps our prayer should be: LORD, teach me to love you. LORD, teach me to want to love you. I hasten to mention that love is also a verb; it denotes action. Do our actions demonstrate how much we love God?
I was a poor student in high school. English and History were my worst subjects. I approached both with levity, but mostly avoidance. Over the past ten or fifteen years I have had to learn a lot of things about both subjects. We should not only learn history, but learn from history. History should teach us.
The apostle Paul said regarding the Children of Israel:
Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved. 1 Corinthians 10:6
:God has provided example after example for us, but we have approached those examples with levity and mostly avoidance.
George Hegel wrote: “What experience and history teach is this - that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles.”
In Edward Gibbon’s monumental study entitled “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” he gave five reasons that the great Empire collapsed.
Ø The increase in divorce, undermining the institution of the family;
Ø The imposition of higher taxes for bread and circuses;
Ø The drive for pleasure, sports becoming more exciting and brutal;
Ø The people lost their faith.
Ø The existence of an internal conspiracy, working to undermine the government from within, all the time that the government was proclaiming that Rome’s enemy was external.
The parallels are striking! Divorce has plagued the structure of the family for decades by tearing individuals apart, especially children, but a new and even more deadly invader is making its way into the family structure - that is same sex marriage. Demented and wanton judges are overruling the will of the people by making heinous decisions declaring same sex marriages legal. Just as Rome fell because of the decline of the family, so will America.
Rome suffered from an economic depression. It would take volumes to describe the economic collapse of our economy. God will bring down the golden calf of mammon in America.
Sports have been a priority on the average American’s to do list for years, but today it’s at an all time high. There is an increased thirst for violence on television. Of course the amount of money spent on football, and other sports is more than staggering.
In Rome people lost their faith. If I am not mistaken Gibbon used the word “pusillanimity” in describing the citizenry of Rome or Rome’s overall condition. The adjective “pusillanimous” denotes one who lacks courage, is cowardly, and lacking resolution.
In the United States we are also experiencing that. Men are no longer men. This androgynous society is crippling America of her manhood. Patriotism is on a steep decline and soon will drop off altogether. People are losing their faith in country and in God.
Rome thought all her enemies were external, but not true. Today, in America we have a dual problem. We most definitely have enemies that are external, i.e., Islamic terrorists and various other nations, that would like to destroy us. But we also have citizens of this country who are enabling and promoting this country’s implosion.
Will we learn from the examples of the Children of Israel? Will we learn from Rome and other nations that fell? I think not! Unless America, has a full scale repentance she will have her funeral and the dirge is already playing.
I must call it like it is: Anyone who supports euthanasia, infanticide, and abortion is supporting something inherently evil. Either they are beyond naïve, and their callowness is beyond repair, or that individual is as evil as the agenda he supports.
Listen, it’s playing our song. The dirge is on the last notes and instead of getting right with God we are keeping time with the beat.
How many wake up calls do we need? When will we learn that nations and individuals are accountable to God Almighty?
One can have all kinds of head knowledge, and this can be good. But, if you have not been to the cross, all you’re learning is in vain. It was Leonard Ravenhill who said, and I paraphrase: Many like to hang around the cross, but few want to be nailed to it. Paul told us that we are crucified with Christ, but nevertheless we live yet not us but it’s Messiah (Christ) that lives through us.
I believe many of the terrorists are already here, and the invasion just hasn’t manifested itself yet. We need to be prepared for what is about to happen. But if we are not spiritually equipped, if a bigger battle is taking place in our own minds, then it doesn’t make any difference how prepared we are physically, how battle ready we are, how much theology we have, how astute we are in prophecy, how fluent we are in Hebrew and Greek, or how much gold or silver we have, if we cannot stand before a holy God clothed in His righteousness, then we are damned. Remember, Yeshua is our only cure!
….What does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly before your God. Micah 6:8
Do you hear it? The sound of a funeral march - it is the sound of the dirge. There is only one way to prepare for all that is to come, and that is to have a clear channel with the Holy Spirit. Then we can have the mind of Christ, and then we can make correct judgments.
Please remember our security is not in gold or silver, in any man or woman, or political party. We must first make sure we and our house are in order. The most important thing you can do is to get right with God.
Is the dirge playing? I believe it is. It is playing a pre-funeral and mournful song for America. Yet, at the same time there are many trumpets giving out a clear sound of warning! Listen to them. They are calling for us to truly repent and turn to God through His Son Yeshua.
Now may the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob bless you through His son Yeshua.
