End Times
American Spectator ^ | Ben Stein

Posted on 09/17/2012 2:28:53 AM PDT by TigerClaws

I awakened to a text from a close friend who is a devout Christian and who was so angry at the elite media that she could not sleep. "I am so frikkin' sick of the media telling us that Islam is a 'religion of peace,'" she said. "Look, people make fun of Jesus all of the time and I mean ALL of the time and we don't kill them or harm them. But do anything at all that offends any Muslim and they start killing Christians and Jews -- and then Obama apologizes for it. How long can this go on? The times of Tribulation are at hand." I got up, walked out on the deck and looked out at the perfect fall day over Lake Pendoreille. An absolutely perfect Fall day, blue skies, light breeze, just a slight chill in the air. At breakfast, my wife suddenly said, "And then I beheld a red horse ridden by a man with a great sword...." "What is that?" I asked her. "It's Revelation," she said.

I just got done watching “The Omen” (2006 version) a short while ago on TV. Hadn’t seen the newer version, still prefer the 1976 version but it was fairly good in some spots, though like the original, the knives thing is completely unBiblical. Omen II is good as well; skip III.

(BTW, I’m not saying they’re Biblically-accurate - but interesting that even secular TV is showing some of this stuff these days - that’s kinda remarkable).

Iran and Libya are definitely showing us some Signs of the Times. Israel is (rightfully so) very concerned for their existence.

Talk of “peace” deals, dividing Israel. Crumbling values of morals now hitting America with the Obamanation in office, and technology that could be easily misused for Mark of the Beast-type implementation.

And then there’s the worldwide economic mess.

These are sobering facts; not fiction at all.

The answer, should it come up again, is, "Because this is a democracy.

No, it is not. It is a Republic.

A couple quotes from the article below. Stein is more than a little naive if he thinks Obama is a Christian. Obama doesn’t show that at all other than lip service to lemmings.

~~~At Ivano’s, I talked to a man who seethed with rage against Mr. Obama. He simply could not believe that Mr. Obama would make time to be among his Hollywood big shots but not make time to see Benjamin Netanyahu. “These are getting to be Biblical days,” he said. “The final days.”~~~

~~~Now, we have worked to create an “Arab Spring” that has given us a fantastically more anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-al Qaeda Middle East.~~~

>> “I am so frikkin’ sick of the media telling us that Islam is a ‘religion of peace,’”

It’s a #ing war plan.

The document is still there. It is up to us to throw these vermin out and re-instate the rule of law.

God Help the U.S.

Watch the movie “2016” in theaters now.... It explains why O is doing everything he is done. It’s for the greater good for the United States of Islam. See for yourself.

Maybe Ben Stein should watch it. He has his own highly successful documentary about evolution (Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed) so he would surely be able to appreciate it. Except for his documentry, he disappoints me most of the time. He knows the truth deep down but tries to be "fair-minded".

If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything.

Friday I was pretty worked up, too...

When asked what had me in such a tizzy, I burst out “the world. is. on. FIRE.”

Words of encouragement, words of faith, “talked me down”.

I still went out on Saturday morning, early, and worked myself to exhaustion, “doing something productive”, and I felt much better.

We are all tired of this nonsense. The myth of the oppressed Muslim is a scam created immediately after 9/11, to impress gullible Americans.

The big problem is that our government is probably nowhere near what the original writers of the constitution envisioned. If they saw us now they would've probably never wrote the constitution, and probably would of said we would've been better under King Georges government. Our government has developed into an entitlement mob rule democracy, with the democrats running toward socialism and the Republicans walking toward it.

Sadly, you'll get no argument from me...

If our founders could have seen ahead into the future to our present day I don’t believe they would have considered independence worth one red drop of their blood. Not when the end product is this current mess. I pray that we can turn this mess around before it’s too late!
