Flashing Events every Day.

Tom's Journal.

Hal Lindsey,  sure got it right about the news flashing by faster than Superman!   On the other hand, those who are still deceived by STD [Satan the devil] are just chasing their tails, and working their heads off trying to stay afloat in this drop like a rock economy.    And, unfortunately, 'THEY own it' because they helped to put that mad man in the WH !!    Sorry for being so frank --- it's a bad habit with me....  duh.  

Friends,  I have been wrong so many times, especially, when ever I've strayed from the scriptures!   Any personal speculation on my part has always return to bite me in the anatomy, and then I have egg on my face.   Just like "Prepping" for example.  It's OK to do that and prepare for hard times a-coming [sic, but Scripture says,  "I have been young, and now I am old;  yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."  ~Psalm 37:25.   The pastor reminded me of that verse last week.   I can show you also that Proverbs says it is wise to lay up [store] food and goods for the Winter, so you don't have to starve or beg.  You see, it's a balance.   Our MAIN SOURCE OF HOPE AND TRUST IS JEHOVAH, BECAUSE:  HIS SON BOUGHT US WITH HIS BLOOD ON CALVARY!!   And the pagan name for the Resurrection Day, "Easter" is almost here again, on April 20th !   I've got a feeling that THIS YEAR will be full of big surprises.  
       I am not attaching too much significance to the "Blood Moons" that are predicted to happen on April 15th,  also 'Tax Day,'  but I still want to see it happen.   It's just the culmination of all these exciting things together, combined that ought to wake us up from our fake TV world mentality.
      Years ago when I was still super Patriotic and America could do no wrong, I talked to people of other countries and heard about what high crimes OUR country did, and could not, or world not believe it.  Now days, I am more inclined to give it a hearing ear.   Just like the probability that Fort Knox is empty, void of all the gold, even that other countries TRUSTED US TO STORE FOR THEM !!  I am just wondering how far back, how many years this has been so!  Not to worry, there is plenty of blame to go around.   I have such a low opinion of the so-called, "Congress and Senate."  And you can bet that the "Judicial Branch of Gov't" is bought off too in the year of 2014.   I am ready for the very worst to happen, including occupation of foreign powers!  It would NOT surprise me one bit, friends!   And I know that my family and I will suffer just like every other family in the USA --- except that Father God has my back, my love, and my soul.  
    I can tell you what works for me:   I have a routine of praying often, studying, memorizing the Scriptures of the Holy KJV Bible as much as I can, and then sharing the Gospel, and handing out Bible Tracts to most everyone I meet, in every day life.   The book of Hebrews says, 'Do not forsake the frequent gathering of yourselves...'   that means, go to the church meetings---if you indeed have a Bible teaching church near you.   If they don't teach the exact Word of God, or you don't see ANY people coming there with  a bible in their hands, DON'T GO THERE !!   At the very least, get a KJV Bible and read it every day.   Don't rely on me or any other person you hear, if they don't show you the truth of God's Word.

This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
As I write these words, I am amazed at the speed with which events are moving today. I receive constant updates from across the world so that I can bring you perspective each week on how those developments fit into the end times' prophetic scenario.

But sometimes it's almost too much.

The Bible tells us that in the last days, the "signs" of the times will appear with ever-increasing frequency and intensity. In our modern lingo, maybe we could describe this phenomena as "the signs of the times on steroids!"

But not everything that advances the prophetic scenario of the final days of this Age is an identifiable "event" like an earthquake or a war, etc. Much of what clues us in to the fact that these are the final days can be found in the rapid deterioration of our ideals, morals, and societal values.

I've been reading today about stunning recent revelations concerning the collusion between prominent Democrat lawmakers and the IRS to stifle dissenting opinion. Not only am I alarmed, I'm sickened by the dishonesty, duplicity, and deviousness of those who are desperately trying to subvert our nation and destroy the values and traditions that have made America the greatest nation on earth.

But this ramping up of the battle to silence Christians and those of conservative moral values is predicted for these days by the ancient prophets. I'm not surprised, but I'm still dismayed that many of our own government leaders are seeking to tear down what has been granted to us by the mercy and favor of God.

In the past couple of weeks, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry seems to have finally hit the wall. He's been chasing around frantically the last 14 months in a mad dash to resolve the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. He has seemed determined, to the point of obsession, to succeed where all others have failed. That is, to finally bring "peace" to the Middle East.

Nine months ago, Kerry pressured Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) into another round of negotiations in search of a settlement. As that period draws to a close, Mahmoud Abbas decided to break his promise to Kerry and begin signing on to several United Nations treaties and conventions. His plan is to join as many UN entities as possible and thereby imply "statehood status" for the Palestinian Authority even though it is not a state.

The move angered Kerry and he abruptly cancelled a scheduled final trip to Israel. Then he told the press that the U.S. could not continue to deal with this issue "indefinitely." At the time, he seemed to blame both parties for not wanting peace.

In the meantime, I suppose the powerful Muslim lobby in the White House flexed its muscle and when Secretary Kerry showed up at a Congressional hearing this week, he placed the blame for the breakdown squarely on Israel's shoulders. Of course, for this administration that's standard operating procedure. Nonetheless, the slam has infuriated Israel's leadership. And rightly so.

You know, Mr. Kerry could save himself a lot of grief if he took some time to study the Bible and take its warnings to heart. The prophet Zechariah warned that in the last days, Jerusalem will become "a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured...." (Zechariah 12:3 NASB) But I don't find any indication in the Bible that the world's leaders will take that warning seriously.

After watching the homosexual movement wreak its vengeance on all who disagree with it, much less oppose it (I'm thinking Chick-Fil-A, Elane Photography in New Mexico, Phil Robertson, even as far back as Anita Bryant), why am I surprised at the latest example of the fascist intolerance of the LGBT crowd?

Brendan Eich, the inventor of JavaScript and one of the co-founders of Mozilla (best known for its Firefox web browser), was recently named Chief Executive Officer at Mozilla. After only 10 days on the job, Eich was forced to resign because six years ago he donated $1,000 to an organization supporting California Proposition 8.

Prop 8 was an amendment passed by California voters in 2008 to overturn a judge's decision to allow same-sex marriage in California.

In a pathetic effort to placate the LGBT movement's anti-free-speech crusaders, the chairwoman of Mozilla's board issued a gratuitous, nauseating apology. Here are a few pertinent lines: "Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn't live up to it.... We're sorry. We must do better.... Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality."

I must apologize. If you heard the peal of disbelieving laughter in the background, that was me. Can you believe that Chairwoman Mitchell Baker actually had the audacity to use the need for free speech to defend the forced resignation of Mr. Eich for engaging in free speech? And she did it with a straight face. And she got away with it. Maybe after that bravura performance she's being considered to replace Kathleen Sebelius at HHS!

Many of you think I'm over the top when I warn you that persecution (and eventual prosecution) is just up the road for Christians right here in America. And the justification for it will have its roots in a brilliant satanic device called "political correctness." If a man who is a genuine "star" in the hi-tech software world can lose his job because he exercised his constitutional right to express his opinion six years ago, then mark my words, it can happen to you.

Of course, it will only happen to you if you stand for something like the Constitution of the United States or Jesus Christ. If you don't, then you have no worries. But if you exercise your rights to freedom of speech or freedom of religion or if you have the audacity to publicly declare the claims of Jesus Christ or Biblical values, then you're in for a rocky road.

And I can say this with authority because this is not simply a political or ideological conflict. This is a spiritual conflict. In fact, this boils down to Satan's war with the Word of God. Beginning in the Garden of Eden when Satan first planted doubt in Eve's mind about God's truthfulness and continuing to his direct contradiction of God's explicit word to Adam and Eve, his goal has been to destroy our confidence in and reliance on God's immutable Word.

And in today's increasingly "politically correct" atmosphere, Satan's plan is to intimidate us into shutting up. The first thing he wants to do is silence us because the last thing he wants is for us to boldly declare the truth of God's Word.

Never before has it been so important for us to realize the power of the Word of God. In the days to come, it will be the rock on which we will stand or by which we will be broken.
