"A quart of wheat for a day's wages...

...and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

At the risk of throwing my pearls before swine, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!" is a prophetic vision for the end times, found in the book of Revelation [v 6:6].  

Those who believe that my right to religious expression, somehow diminishes their right to remain in spiritual darkness, are free to leave now. I wouldn't want to offend anyone. lol

For clarification: We know the above scripture points to higher grain prices, due to drought conditions, because it makes the distinction between grain, wine and oil (olive no doubt). Grape vines, and olive tree roots run deeper, so these are less affected.... It's the grain alone that is damaged. It describes an inflationary food crisis in which a day's wages is no longer able to sustain a family's daily food requirements.  

We have already see food riots in Egypt and elsewhere, but not much panic, yet imagine if everybody in your town, or city, panicked, and rushed to fill their pantries at once. This is what is happening right now on a global scale. Governments are hording food, in order to avoid an uprising, and the U.N. is freaking out. 

The real shame is that very few people who identify themselves as Christian have ever read the Bible, let alone study it. I attribute this  falling away (from the faith) - another end time Prophesy - as much on churches, which pander to the lusts of this world, as I do to the failure of the Public School System, which has replaced the promotion of sound biblical principals - on which our country was founded - with Modern Psychology. It's no surprise much of today's younger generation is lost. As I've pointed out before it's those who lead these little ones astray who have the most to fear. What would Jesus do? The Bible explains in great detail what will happen to those who prevent children from coming to the truth, and all I can say is that I would NOT want to be in their shoes.  

The progressive radicals who set the curriculum in the public schools, would like to have us believe that it's "creationism" they really have a problem with, but it's basically the whole book; from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah - because of rampant homosexuality and every other sort of evil; "God's chosen race" (a dirty word nowadays); to the law; and the commandments. Liberals like to bend the law to suit their own agenda.

How many young people even know what the term liberal, or progressive, means? The term liberal has nothing to do with personal liberties; the term liberal refers to the idea that the constitution should be liberally interpreted. These nitwits know that if our rights are no longer inalienable then our rights must be regulated by big government, and therein lies the debate. Perhaps you like being regulated, but I prefer not to be...since most atrocities have been committed in the name of equality, served up by big government.

I'm sure many parents would have a hard time getting their kids to put down the iPod for 5 minutes to pay attention to this topic, and you don't dare force them to listen to you, because you don't want the angry lesbians in flap jackets - from DCFS -   kicking down your front door in the middle of the night. I mean, what would the neighbors say? 

Many parents who would not hesitate to throw him or herself in front of a speeding car in order to save their child's life, do not exercise the same kind of vigilance when it comes to protecting their soul from the pervasive evil we are seeing the world today. 

We no longer look to God's word for answers. We'd rather parade a million idiots across the TV screen 24/7, and watch them debate... so that we can pick and choose the truths that seems to suit our own interests. We'll I'm going to break from modern day tradition, and hold that every opinion is not a valid, and that lies are not measured in degrees.     

Documentaries - as seen on the Discovery channel, History channel, and others equate biblical prophecy to the prophetic visions of Nostradamus, and belief in UFO's, and anyone who has studied scripture, and watches "educational" television, knows exactly what I'm talking about. 

Not only have we as God's chosen people failed to believe (in the sense of living according to the faith), but today we question the very existence of God.     

In a metaphorical sense I think the vast majority would rather believe that aliens are coming to solve the worlds problems, and if they do... and they're invited to appear on the Piers Morgan's show, and Piers as calm as always asks "well why are you here, you must have a good reason", as if he isn't one of them lol and then they make their grand declaration, "we come in peace, from a distant universe. We are the one's who created humankind, but we see you are now on the brink of extinction, so we have returned to save you from yourselves, and religion - the root of all evil - before it destroys you", and multitudes would fall for it hook line and sinker, turning their back on their faith, and even help to cleans the earth of those who refuse to get with the new program. 

After all everybody knows religion is responsible for most wars.  This is what a handful of Liberal professors, and an army of internet trolls would have you believe, but the enemy in the Middle East - the most radical Muslims - are the first in a long time to make war for religious reasons. Most every major war in modern history has been spent battling communism. The Japanese war certainly wasn't "caused by religion". Hitler may have hated the Jewish race, but that's not why went to war. Religion has done more to promote charity, and peace, in the world than any other organization, while most human atrocities have been committed in the name of communism, by communist dictators, like Mao Zedong (Tse- tung), and Joseph Stalin. Their MO is to promise, "change, and equality", while blaming the rich, but the promises never seem to deliver...sound familiar?         

Watch the race for the most powerful man on earth - the Presidency of the United States - in November. A God fearing man, Mitt Romney, running against a former close friend of known radicals, a pastor with anger issues, communist sympathizers; a former drug user, product of Chicago politics, and a strong advocate of policy which is clearly in direct contradiction with God's word. This is America's choice. 

As we swing into autumn, watch as the rain falls on dead crops, and barren land, watch as the radical progressives continue to attack Romney, based on his success as a business man, as well as his religious believes.

Unless America turns back to God, and repents, the turmoil you're seeing around the globe today will continue to increase, until Christ's return. I make my living recognizing trends, and this one seems to have some momentum behind it.

In my last post I talked about learning how to put myself out there and I am, and I encourage you to boldly tell it like it is. Look into what your kids are being taught in school and what they are being exposed to on the internet, and speak up if you see something that violates your religious beliefs, or your principals.

Support those who are willing to come out and stand up for what is right, including corporate entities such as Chick-Fil-A restaurants, who run their business according to biblical principles, while boycotting those who don't. I actually heard the CEO for "Yum Brands", say he doesn't agree with the CEO of Chick-Fil-A view. Well, I won't miss eating the slop Taco Bell serves.    

When I was a young man, I was told, by people much wiser than myself, that I would ultimately end up in jail, or dead. Miraculously, I came to the acceptance that my way was not the right way, and I got down on my knees and prayed for forgiveness, and accepted Jesus into my life, and for the first time in my life I began to experience the peace, joy, and purpose that can only come from a personal relationship with the living God. Today I'm the living proof Jesus saves. It just happens; a seed (of faith) is planted, and it either grows or it doesn't. Faith isn't a choice. You don't just one day decide you no longer want to be a selfish bastard, and then delude yourself into believing a fairytale in order to change for the better. That approach doesn't lend the power needed to encourage change in ones life, and it doesn't explain away all the miracles I continue to witness.

For the record I don't hate anyone, but I don't support the avocation or practice of unhealthy alternative lifestyles. Just because everyone is piercing and tattooing themselves, doesn't change God's views on that practice either, but do I hate my freaky tattooed friends? Certainly not. Most of the hatred, and division we've seen over the past several decades, has been coming from the left, and they have really ramped up this campaign over the past 20 years, and all in the name of acceptance, where this is none. 

If you don't like my views, and beliefs, you are free to pursue your wisdom elsewhere. I don't have a lot of time for debate and I don't suffer fools gladly, and if anyone would rather do business with non-believers, I see that as their problem.
