Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation

: 'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.
: Amen!'

A House Divided

WOW is a Famine next?

WOW, can you believe these two weeks?
Governments all over the world are taking possession or control over their banks! The London newspapers headlines "We're all socialists now"! Berliscone says, " we need a global agreement changing to rules on who banks do business with each other". Bernaki, Bush, and Paulson, say "their needs to be a Global solution, cooperation to deal with the banking problem. 4 Major central banks lower their key interest rate with-in a few hours of each other. The Stock market loses 40-50%.
Now I gotta tell you I see Biblical end times written all over this!
It seems that some years ago, maybe going back to the late 1970's, somewhere, by some group it was decided that the eventual global government would be socialist (hang with me here for a moment). Since the Reagan years we have seen Russia and China pull back, almost miraculously, from strict communism to allowing pseudo freedom. Their people can now choose to leave the farms for the city jobs, own businesses and homes, hold shares of stock. But at the same time we have seen "free" democratic nations such as France, Finland, Sweden, Canada, and Venezuela move into socialism. With a single vote in 3 weeks America could join them.
With the governments owning/backing the banking system, a banking/monetary collapse would mean a global collapse of government and a global collaborative government could rise overnight in its place.

Remember when Joseph became prime minister of Egypt.
GE 41:41 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, and men shouted before him, "Make way!" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.

Remember how with each crisis the all of the people cried out to Joseph to give them, "a little food for them and their little ones". Each time they did this they traded some part of their freedom away into the control of Pharaoh.
GE 47:13 There was no food, however, in the whole region because the famine was severe; both Egypt and Canaan wasted away because of the famine. 14 Joseph collected all the money that was to be found in Egypt and Canaan in payment for the grain they were buying, and he brought it to Pharaoh's palace. 15 When the money of the people of Egypt and Canaan was gone, all Egypt came to Joseph and said, "Give us food. Why should we die before your eyes? Our money is used up."

GE 47:16 "Then bring your livestock," said Joseph. "I will sell you food in exchange for your livestock, since your money is gone." 17 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and he gave them food in exchange for their horses, their sheep and goats, their cattle and donkeys. And he brought them through that year with food in exchange for all their livestock.

GE 47:18 When that year was over, they came to him the following year and said, "We cannot hide from our lord the fact that since our money is gone and our livestock belongs to you, there is nothing left for our lord except our bodies and our land. 19 Why should we perish before your eyes--we and our land as well? Buy us and our land in exchange for food, and we with our land will be in bondage to Pharaoh. Give us seed so that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become desolate."

GE 47:20 So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh's, 21 and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other. 22 However, he did not buy the land of the priests, because they received a regular allotment from Pharaoh and had food enough from the allotment Pharaoh gave them. That is why they did not sell their land.

GE 47:23 Joseph said to the people, "Now that I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh, here is seed for you so you can plant the ground. 24 But when the crop comes in, give a fifth of it to Pharaoh. The other four-fifths you may keep as seed for the fields and as food for yourselves and your households and your children."

GE 47:25 "You have saved our lives," they said. "May we find favor in the eyes of our lord; we will be in bondage to Pharaoh."

GE 47:26 So Joseph established it as a law concerning land in Egypt--still in force today--that a fifth of the produce belongs to Pharaoh. It was only the land of the priests that did not become Pharaoh's.

GE 47:27 Now the Israelites settled in Egypt in the region of Goshen. They acquired property there and were fruitful and increased greatly in number.

This psychotic America and World will sell themselves into slavery just as fast as the Egyptians did. Once that is in place we can begin the Egyptian/Moses like plagues of Revelation to bring all creation back into the promised land with Christ as their Judge/government. First Pharaoh/AntiChrist must rise so that the "horse and rider [can be ] thrown into the sea"

The Smear Campaign Against Christians and Jews

For years must of us have understood that the driving force behind the Globalization movement has been the fear of nuclear war. Of course we recognize that Satan is the provider of that fear. Those on Earth who do not know God's "perfect love, which casts out all fear", are completely controlled by that fear.
I want to present some evidence here that the above paragraph is in fact true. As I was surfing, researching an upcoming post, I came across a string of United Nations and Emergent Church dialog. Their goal is to unify all faiths through compromise, in a word: ecumenicalism
As part of that string was this lecture announcement from a group called World Future Society :

The Threat of Nuclear Terrorism and the Abrahamic Religions

The gravest challenge confronting humanity’s future is the threat of nuclear terrorism. The Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam will determine whether this nightmare scenario becomes a future reality. Through 450 years of global conquest, colonialism enabled Christianity to surpass Islam as the world’s largest religion. In 1948 the United Nations created the state of Israel in the Palestinian homeland. At the start of the 21st century, continuing world expansion by Christians, ongoing struggle by Jews to preserve the state of Israel, and Muslim efforts to regain lost ground have combined to confront the global village with a potentially worse-case scenario. While the future remains developmentally open, three trends have begun to steer humanity away from the nuclear nightmare: 1) the world has gone on the offensive against terrorism; 2) contrary to some popular belief, religion is building bridges of cooperation; and 3) humanity is learning to live together peacefully amidst the pluralism of the modern world.

Who should attend: Religious persons who want to explore the relationship between religion and terrorism, as well as anyone interested in avoiding the nuclear terrorism scenario.
What you’ll learn: Attendees will learn how the Abrahamic religions have together placed the global village in its current perilous condition and how religions might contribute to a positive future filled with peace and justice rather than one of hatred and hostility.
How this knowledge can be applied: This knowledge can help participants become proactive in shaping the future in a positive way.

Now I've studied some history And I'd like to argue that it has been quite some time since that last war that was started by Judeo/Christian followers. We have certainly defended our right to a free society and with it freedom to worship the God of the Bible, but what war since The Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) has been started over our God? The answer is none!
Lets look at them Russia/Georgia: nope
Iraq 1&2: no that was about Saddam
Viet Nam: no that was cold war spread communism threat
Korea: no stop Communism again
WWII: no, stop world domination by Hitler
WWI: European internal political struggle
Until you get to the attempt of world domination of Catholicism and the ego of various Popes you can't find a war about religion started by Christians or Jews. You can find wars fought in DEFENSE of our right to exist in freedom. What bad bad people we must be to put the world on the brink by not rolling over and playing dead!!!
