End of America?: Terrorism Arising Out of Mexico


This video is an update from the article we did back on September 21, 2011, called Islamic Terrorist Group Partner with Mexican Drug Cartel. A couple of weeks later on October 11, story broke that the United States Government foiled terrorist plot that Iran was attempting to make with the Zeta Mexican Drug Cartel. Fortunately the Iranian-American who was attempting to make a deal with what he thought was one of the leaders of the Zeta Drug Cartel, was actually a DEA informant. We must continue to intercede in prayer for our nation.  

Racism & Ethnic Cleansing: Nation Rise Against Nation



Jesus said in Matthew 24:7, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.” In this scripture the Lord is speaking about the “end of this age.” The focus of this verse is the rising of one nation against another. The Greek word for nation is “ethnos."  It means race or tribe. In other words, Jesus was prophesying that at the end of the age there would be an increase in racial/tribal conflict between ethnic groups. Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamashiach) is not only the Savior, He is the "greatest Prophet" ever born.  There is no one person greater than He. His prophecies haven't fallen to the ground. How is nation rising against nation relevant for today's times? Let's take an in-depth look at how Matthew 24:7 relates to our current times. 


Racism has long existed in the Earth. A prime example of this is African-American slavery in the USA and the post slavery condi­tions it created. Another is the Holocaust where six million Jews in Nazi-Germany were tortured and murdered. The word “racism” is define as, “the notion that one’s own ethnic stock is superior, or discrimination or prejudice based on racism.” The term “ethnic cleansing” is “forced emigration and population exchange while merging with deportation and genocide.” Since the 1990’s we have seen a worldwide increase of nation against nation.
1.  In the former Yugoslavia, between 1991 and 2001, there was ethnic conflict and cleansing among Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, and Albanians.
2.  In 1994 there was the massacre of nearly one million Tutsis by Hutus otherwise known as Rwanda Genocide.
3. In the Darfur area of western Sudan, Janjaweed Arab Militias killed hundreds of thousands of Black Sudanese in Sudan.  Be­tween 2003 and now it is estimated that there have been 400,000 to 2.5 million murdered. Women have been raped by these Arab Militias and thousands of Blacks displaced off their land. 4. In Oc­tober of 2006 Niger announced it would deport all Arabs living in the Diffa region from Niger to Chad.
5. And in 2011 a group of  African American youth in Milwaukee, Wisconsin called "Flash Mobs" attack White people at the Wisconsin State Fair(source).

Worldwide conflict between ethnic groups is on the rise as the end of the age nears!


Ethnic Cleansing in California/West Coast

Mexican Mafia agenda of eth­nic cleansing of Blacks in LA, and throughout California


Interestingly, California prisons’ “shot-callers” or leaders of the Mexican Mafia have issued a “green light” on all African Americans in mostly Hispanic neighborhoods by Mexican street gangs.  Killing blacks and driving them out of predominantly Mexican neighborhoods is an act of ethnic cleansing. The Mexican Mafia controls most of the Latino gangs south of Bakersfield.

There are many neighborhoods in and around Los Angeles that have been witness to this kind of action. These areas include the 18th Street gang located in southwest LA, the Toonerville gang located in northeast LA, the F13 gang on Florence and Firestone Avenues of Highland Park, the Pomona 12 gang located in Pomona, Varrio Tortilla Flats located in Compton and East Riv­erside, Bulldogs of Fresno, in northwest Pasadena, and Bakers­field, and parts of the San Diego area. These areas have also witnessed the driving out of African-Americans. Inno­cent Blacks have been targeted and in most cases, murdered strictly on skin color without any type of gang affiliation.  The latest attacks by Mexican gangs on African-Americans have been in Azusa, CA. , and in Oceanside , CA.

Most think the Mexican Mafia ordered ethnic cleansing because of their turf war with the Black Guerilla family, a black prison gang. However they draw from the Aztlan Invasion agenda.  Aztlan is a Mexican separatist group. The Aztlan invasion agenda’s goal is known as La Reconquista, which is to cede and take over the entire southern and western states of the United States, driving out whites and blacks by any means necessary.



Ethnic Cleansing of Iraqi Christians



As you can see from the video above Iraqi Christians have been killed and driven-out by Islamic Militants since the fall the of Saddam Hussein regin (here). The current Iraqi government is doing absolutely nothing to protect the Christian citizens of Iraqi, and Al Qaeda militants in Iraqi have declared Christians a legitimate target(here).

Our Christian brothers and sisters in Iraqi are under severe perscution and they have no military protection within Iraqi. We must be intercessors through prayer and fasting that the Lord is able to watch over them in these last and evil days.

The ethnic cleansing of Christians has occurred since the mid-late 20th century.  During the 1970's  Dictator Idi Amin committed genocide against Christians in Uganda. Out the 300,000 Christians in Uganda, Amin had 100,000 Christians killed . And in Rwanda in 1994 over 500,000 Tutsi Christians were killed during the Rwandan Genocide. Jesus warned also in Matthew 24:9 , that in the last days that Christians will be hated by all nations, and be put to death. Again prophecy is being fulfilled in the eyes of the believers of Jesus Christ.




Sign of the Times

Demonic spirits are being released onto the Earth, and the ethnic conflicts that have been dormant for years are now arising out the bellies of hell causing ethnic conflict throughout the world. It should be no surprise to the Church that these things are occurring, and will increase because we are living in the end of the age.

We are living in the last days. Second Timothy 3:1 says, “This Know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” Jesus was not only the Messiah, but the greatest Prophet of all. He prophesied over 2000 years ago that racism or ethnic conflict would increase as the end of the age neared. We must be able to see the signs of times through spiritual eyes and understand the times we’re living in. This is the hour to seek God like never before and to see His glory manifested in these last days in a dark evil world. The Church is the light of the world.



Pope Benedict XVI One World Church Meeting Oct. 27

By The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI has invited Hindus, Jews, Taoists and Muslims to join him next week for a peace pilgrimage to the hilltop town of Assisi — but they won't pray together because Benedict doesn't want to show different beliefs and rituals mixing.

The Oct. 27 event marks the 25th anniversary of the first such interreligious prayer for peace, which was promoted by Pope John Paul II and held in the town known for its native son St. Francis.

Benedict, then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, didn't attend that first 1986 meeting and later criticized it as an example of religious relativism — the idea that there are no absolute truths and that all religions are somehow equal — since people of different faiths were seen praying together, jointly.

In 2000, when he was head of the Vatican's doctrine office, Ratzinger issued a controversial document in part as a response to the Assisi meeting, which suggested the fullness of human salvation was found in the Catholic Church alone.

Now Benedict is presiding over his first Assisi interreligious gathering, and the decision to eliminate the common, public prayer is being seen as his way of further correcting the wrongs from the 1986 event, which was repeated in 2002, albeit with changes.

Vatican officials outlined the day's schedule Tuesday and released the guest list, which includes a record
300-plus delegates representing dozens of faiths — and even four people who profess no faith, a new feature this year.

Some of the big names include Rajhmoon Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, who will head a Hindu delegation; the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams; a delegation from Israel's rabbinate authority; a Bahai, a Zoroastrian, three Jains, five Sikhs, and a Yoruba.

The Dalai Lama had a scheduling conflict and is sending an envoy, and Russia's Orthodox Church — with which the Vatican is trying to improve ties — is dispatching a representative from Kazakhstan. For the first time, a Buddhist from mainland China is coming.

Some 48 Muslims are expected, but none from Cairo's Al-Azhar institute, the pre-eminent school of Islamic learning in the Sunni Muslim world, which cut ties with the Vatican over Benedict's call for Christians to be better protected in Egypt.

The delegates will travel together with the pope aboard a train leaving from the Vatican's train station and will sit together for speeches in Assisi's St. Mary of the Angels basilica. They'll have a "spare" lunch together — obviously heavily vegetarian — and then they will go to pray privately, separately in rooms of an Assisi convent.

They'll come back together for a wrap-up session and light candles as symbols of peace.

Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, head of the Vatican's justice and peace office, confirmed that the "novelty" of this year's agenda is that there is no common, public prayer for peace as there had been in previous Assisi encounters.

"The emphasis is on the pilgrimage, not on the common prayer," he said. But he denied the change represented any negative judgment on past meetings, saying it was merely "a way to try to improve the character itself of inviting exponents of other faiths together."

"It's an exercise of dialogue, and dialogue always respects the specific identity of the people, of individuals," he told reporters.

Traditionalist Catholics, in particular, were horrified at some of the images broadcast from the 1986 event, where non-Christians were seen praying in Catholic churches and in one, a small statue of a Buddha was reportedly placed on an altar.

Turkson said he had received e-mails from concerned Catholics, including one promising that the sender would celebrate 1,000 Masses of reparation for the harm done in Assisi.

To counter the criticism that the pope was hosting yet another Assisi gathering, the Vatican newspaper has for months been featuring essays by top Vatican cardinals who have sought to put the 2011 Assisi edition in the correct light: That it is merely a pilgrimage of people of different faiths, and that it in no way will involve any religious syncretism, or combining of different beliefs and practices.



Revelation 17: 1-6 says,  1And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:


2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

SEEKING THE FACE of GOD






To seek the face of God is to seek His presence. The word “face” is a Hebrew idiom that means, “The presence of God.” Psalms 24:6 states, “This is the generation that seek him, that seek Thy face oh Jacob. Selah.” Second Chronicles 7:14 states, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.”


Definition for Idiom

According to The American Heritage Dictionary, an idiom is “…a speech form of expression of a language that is peculiar to itself grammatically that cannot be understood from the individuals’ meaning and its elements.” In lay terms, an idiom is a simple word that is used to describe something much more than it actually is. In our case, when we seek the “face” of God, we seek His presence. Because God does not have a face as you and I, the idiom in this case is to seek His awesome and omnipotent presence.

Examples Coming into the Face of God/Presence of God

Jacob had seen the Face of God at Peniel, for he was in the presence of the Lord where he wrestled with a man all night. It eventually it causes a transformation in Jacob's life that he went from a trickster/Jacob to a Prince of God/ Israel (Genesis 32:24-30; Psalm 4:6). Coming into the presence of God you will never be the same, because His Divine Presence brings transformation and holiness.

People obtain favor, and have joy when they come into the face of God (Job 33:26).

Were delivered, and restored when the Face of God shine's on us (Psalm 31:16, Psalm 80:19).

Moses spoke to God face to face, as friend speaks to another friend; Moses received revelation of the Torah for the nation of Israel , and was known as the most prominent prophet of Israel secondly only Jesus Christ. When Moses left the presence of the Lord, his countenance shine with the glory when came back down the mountain to the people, he had to place a veil to cover his (Exodus 33:11; Exodus 34:34; Deuteronomy 34:10; 2 Corinthians 3:13).

Obed-Edom had the Ark of the Covenant (presence of God) for three months in his house, and the Lord blessed everything he owned (1 Chronicles 13:14), because of the Ark of the Covenant being present.

What Can Cause God to Hid His Face? Ichabod the Glory Departed !

The question should be what causes God to hid His Face/Presence from mankind? Answer would be sin. In Isaiah 59:2 says, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."

Prime examples of people in the Bible that had an "Ichabod experience" or the presence of God fleeing from His people in the Word of God are as follows:

First example is when Eli the High Priest wicked sons Hophni and Phinehas went out to battle the Philistines, they were killed in battle, and all the men that went to battle with them died, their father Eli after hearing the news that his sons were killed fell back in his chair broke his neck. After all the calamity occurred, Phinehas wife birth a son and called his name Ichabod, which means the "glory of God/presence of God has departed. The presence had indeed departed, because of evil sinful leadership; they couldn't defeat the enemy because of sin in the camp (1 Samuel 4:19-22).

Second example is Samson, his continued sexual immorality was a snare and his down fall, when got up from being with Delilah, he awoke out of his sleep to fight the Philistines like other times, however the Lord had departed(Ichabod) from him(Judges 16:19-21) . The Philistines took him captive, bond him, and put his vision/sight out( without vision or prophetic revelation people perish Proverbs 29:18), Samson demise was that he rejected knowledge(Hosea 4:6).

Third example is the glory departing from the Temple in Ezekiel 10, because of the habitual sin in the nation of Judah the presence of God departed from the Temple, in which later King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem(2 Kings 25:9-10), because the glory of God had departed.

Fourth example is Adam and Eve when they ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil they died spiritual first becoming sinners. The first thing they did after sinning, was hide themselves from the presence of God(Genesis 3:8). The glory had departed from Adam, what soon followed was spiritual death, ultimately physical death.

If you have carnal mind then it will bring you death, but if you're spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8: 5-8). Also the carnal mind hates the law of God, and being in His presence (Romans 8:7). We receive life every time we enter into the presence of God

So are you facing a hard situation? Do you need the Lord’s presence to guide and direct you through a certain valley of decision? If so, take time this week to seek His presence and not his hand. He promised that when we do this in humility and turn from our sinful ways, we will see His glory manifested in our lives.

Jesus in Other Feast Days & Prophetic Signs


In honor of Yom Kippur, and the other Jewish Feast Days, let's look at the prophetic signs of the Jewish Feast Days. We can see Christ in other feast and sacred days, as type and shad­ows, plus the prophetic significance.  Here are the following feasts after Passover:
Unleavened Bread  Jesus is the Bread of Life, we come into a Christian life and we eat of His Word  no longer walking in a sinful lifestyle (Exodus 12:7-20, 13:6;Leviticus 23:4-8; 1 Corinthians 5:6-8).
First Fruits, Jesus fulfilled First Fruits for His resurrection was the first day of the week and on First Fruits. He is first fruit of the res­urrection (Leviticus 23:9-14; Matthew 28:1; 1 Corinthians 15:20,23; Romans 8:29;  Revelation 1:5).
Feast of Pentecost or Weeks is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Leviticus 23:15-21; Acts 2:1-13).
Feast of Trumpets( Rosh Hashanah) is the trumpet blast of Mes­siah return in the last days (Leviticus 23:23-25; 1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16).
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is the atoning work of Jesus the Messiah, and final judgment (Leviticus 23:26-32; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 20:11-15).
Feast of Tabernacle (Booths/ Ingathering) is 1000 year reign of Jesus who will tabernacle among us, which would cause Sabbath rest for creation, and the final redemption (Leviticus 23:33-44; Zechariah 14:16; Revelation 20:4-6).

If you include Feast of Passover, their seven significant feast days among the Jews. We see prophetically past, present, and future of these feast days. The feast that commemorate the closing of the cycle of feast is the eighth feast which is Sacred Assembly or Holy Convocation is the last feast. This feast the offering is made by fire and no regular work is done (Leviticus 23:36), eight is the number of new beginnings, new era, resurrection, regeneration, or new order. The old heaven and old earth shall pass away by fire, and new heaven and new earth arise from regeneration, where the new order is without the existence of sin anymore, only one will be  in existence which is the will of G-d( Isaiah 65:17; 2 Peter 3:7,12-13; Revelation 20:11,21:1). Therefore the fulfillment of Sacred Assembly, everyone that is holy and sanctified will live with Jesus throughout eternity, sickness and death is no more, Jesus wipes away all of our tears, and the unholy sinners will spend eternity in damnation in the Lake of Fire.
These entire feasts are prophetic examples as believers we see the Word of G-d at work and His Word confirmed. Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:11 things that occur in the Old Testament were examples for the New Testament saints to admonish us.     

Passover & Jesus the Messiah as the Passover Lamb


We as Christians celebrate Resurrection Sun­day, in remembrance of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection. On the Jewish Calendar, however Passover falls on that month.


The Passover is a type and shadow of Christ Jesus being our Pass­over Lamb, and Jesus prophetically fulfilling the Feast of Passover, the blood of Jesus is applied upon our life, and the blood of Jesus is for remission of sins( Luke 24:47, Acts 2:38, 1 John 5:8). Passover means the Lord would “pass over,” the destroyers bypass the Israel­ites homes in Egypt, because the blood was applied to the door post of their homes. As for today the blood of Jesus is a hedge of protection also from seen and unseen danger.
Here is several key factors of Jesus being our Passover Lamb:
He is the unblemished lamb (Exodus 12:5 ; John 1:29 ; Hebrews 4:14-15). John the Baptist called him the Lamb of God, which take away sin of the world.
Jesus is the lamb selected in advanced (Exodus 12:3; 1 Peter 1:19-20).
Jesus is the Lamb slain (Exodus 12:6, 21 ; Revelation 5:6, 13:8).
He is the Lamb with no broken bones (Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12; Psalms 34:20; John 19:33,36).
The blood applied to door of our hearts (Exodus 12:7, 22 ; Hebrews 10:22).
Leaven removed and sin removed from our life through Christ ( Exodus 12:15, 19:20; 1 Corinthians 5:8).
Jesus was the Lamb hidden for four days; a day with the Lord is as a thousand years. From Adam to Jesus was four thousand years, which is four days in the eyes of the Lord (Exodus 12:3, 6; Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8).
Jesus was killed exactly at 3:00 p.m. the same time the Passover Lamb was annually killed.
Other types and shadows of Passover:
Egypt as the World System.
Israel as the Children of G-d.
Pharaoh as Satan, and symbol of Egypt was a serpent (Revelation 12:9).
Passover is deliverance from Egypt( the world and sin), and the blood is for protection.
So Jesus is our Passover Lamb, and in Him is life, because life is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11), His blood cleanses and delivers us from sin, and we now walk in the newness of life.

Five Fold Ministry and The Potter's Hand

Potter’s hand is the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher. 5 fold help mold vessels for the Kingdom


 
In Jeremiah 18 there is a parable about the potter and the clay. The clay is on the potter’s wheel and the vessel is molded and shaped by the potter.  This is an analogy of God’s children being in the hands of God and letting him mold and shape both our character and service unto Him. When we are submitted to the will of God, we are vessels of honor (2 Timothy 2:21).
The five fold ministry ( Ephesians 4:11)  acts as the hand of Jesus Christ to mold and shape vessels for the kingdom of God.  The thumb is the Apostle, the forefinger is the Prophet, the middle finger is the Evangelist, the ring finger is the Pastor, and the little finger is the Teacher (Apostles Prophets and Coming Move of God, by Bill Hamon). Isaiah 64:8 says, “But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”   Man was formed out of the dust  of the ground by God in Genesis 2:7. The Hebrew word “aphar” means dust, clay, earth, mud, ashes.  God is the Master Potter because he is the Creator(Genesis 1:1Isaiah 40:28).


We become a new creation in Christ Jesus when were born again. After being born again were like new clay needing to be molded and shaped by Christ.  The new clay goes on the potter’s wheel( the wheel is the move of the Holy Spirit).  The thumbs or the Apostles center the clay on the wheel ( Apostle brings order, establishes doc­trine, lays a foundation). Being directed by the thumbs, the clay is being molded by the potter’s hand. To bring the clay outward, either the thumb or Apostle and/or the forefinger (a.k.a Prophet) directs the shape of the pottery.  The Apostle and Prophet are foundation Ephe­sians 2:20 and they give prophetic direction.   The other three fingers of the hand, Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher, works in unity on the out­side of the pottery. The Thumb or Apostle continues to run across the clay until no more friction is felt by the hand.  In other words, there is a perfecting the saints as they are not toss to fro from every wind of doctrine, Ephesians 4:13-14.


After the vessel is shaped, then it is glazed.  The glaze is the purpose for decorations and protection of the vessel.  After being glazed the vessel is placed in the kiln or oven to under go the fire. Firing brings irreversible changes in the body of the vessel.  It is only after firing that the article can be called pottery. Undergoing the process of glaz­ing and firing brings about the finished product. Test and trials are the fire, which brings the glory of God. As long as we walk in the Spirit and the glory of God is manifested in our lives we are more than conquerors because He gives us the grace to overcome any situation that arises.
People look at great ministry being manifested out of a vessel of God, but they don’t understand the molding and shaping process of that person and the adversity that individual had to undergo before seeing the Lord do a glorious work through the man or woman of God.  God can entrust them with the work of Kingdom. Because the vessel has endured the test, the people of God see the finished prod­uct from the hand of God.
Young ministers keep this in mind: go through the complete process of God so you can bring Him glory.  Don’t take short cuts, because short cuts will make your ministry a “shipwreck.”  Don’t walk in the carnal desires of ministry success but walk in the Spirit.  The Lord will bring glory to ministry, and you shall be His vessel of honor as long as you keep your integrity and seek His face.
