Opinion: Heads or Tails – Doesn’t Matter; Same Coin

As MIA has long believed (and written), America is a one party state with two wings (the Democrats and the Republicans) – which are controlled by the same powerful global socialist elite. This elite Establishment controls the nomination process and thus the nominees for both political parties, and these parties, though different on the surface and in their rhetoric, in reality follow the same global socialist script that is now rapidly taking America toward third world economic status, a dictatorship, and ultimately a world government (which Bush Sr. and Mikhail Gorbachev repeatedly called the New World Order).

Any thinking person should see that the rules, regulations, legislation, taxes, and wars are almost identical under both Republican Administrations (think Bushes Sr. and Jr.) and Democrat Administrations (think Clinton(s) or Obama). Regardless of which party is in power in the Congress or the White House, and regardless of the contrasting rhetoric, the policies and results are almost identical – and America continues moving toward socialism, globalism, and away from our Constitution, freedoms, and traditional values.

Note how the Neocons control the foreign policy (and wars) of both parties – of both the Bush and Obama Administrations. The same group of Establishment elites controls both parties, and is always moving America in the same direction – there is no difference. Our elections are political theater, staged to entertain the masses and convince them that they live in a real democracy – which they don’t! If the candidates of both parties are chosen by the Establishment, the Establishment cannot lose – they will always be in power….

Like the Reagan popular groundswell in 1980, the Establishment did not see the obnoxious real estate tycoon Donald Trump coming out of nowhere and overnight garnering a popular groundswell of support among millions of Americans who are sick of the lies, corruption, wars, and the job/income-killing socialism that the elite have been cramming down their throats. Trump’s message is simple: “The elite of both parties are corrupt; they are driving America into the ground, wrecking the country by opening the borders to tens of millions of illegals including millions of Muslims; they are Islamizing America, killing millions of jobs, getting us into needless wars that only they profit from, and reducing America to third world status – all while enriching themselves.”

Together 2016: Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

Wake up, brethren! Evangelicals are being lured into a web of deception by Church leaders we trust. Read the article we’re posting and you’ll find out who some of these people are.

They’re wolves!  Run!!

For those who missed all the hype, on July 16 an event called Together 2016 was held at the Washington Mall.  Thousands of professing Christians gathered together to pray for Jesus to “reset” the country and their lives.  Sadly, attendees at the mall and on live stream were unaware that the event was rife with false teachers.  They didn’t know that speakers and entertainers braved the blistering heat for one purpose: to reset the Reformation!  What was the rallying cry?  UNITE!  With who?  Our Catholic “brothers and sisters.”

In a piece over at Herescope, Gaylene Goodroad documents the NAR/dominionist’s plan to unite Protestants and Catholics.  This is MUST READ for all serious Christians.

God’s Warning? “Heat” Shuts Down Apostate ‘Together 2016’ Event

The heavily marketed, highly touted, and Scripture-denying “Together 2016” event was held on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Saturday, July 16. Thousands gathered on the mall and watched by live stream for the purported purpose to pray for Jesus to “reset” the country and their lives.

The stream of celebrity evangelical “leaders,” pastors and musicians across the stage was essentially a who’s who of heresy. For the discerning believer who may have tuned in, markedly absent from the frenzy was a sense of reverence for a Holy God to whom appeals were being made to “fix our problems.”  Oh yeah, the real Gospel was conspicuously absent too.

Of course, the discerning believer will have recognized the real Jesus from the multitude of fictional ones being called upon from the stage’s center circle. The real Jesus would have not twisted Scripture to claim for America promises intended His chosen nation Israel. The real Jesus would not have bellowed out a repentance-free message of love, hope, and personal fulfillment. The real Jesus would not have jerked verses out of Scripture, encouraging listeners to name them and claim them for His, and their own, glory.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. Romans 16:17-18

Below, then, is a list of those eager celebrity participants in the Together 2016 event who are effectively standing before the world, as well as before the true church, and proclaiming their willingness to disregard Scripture, such as Paul’s command in Romans. These evangelical “leaders” have become, by their own participation in a false festival promoting man-made unity, the very ones about whom Paul has commanded, “Avoid them.”

Others not listed on the website’s official line-up participated as well, but none perhaps as noteworthy as the grand apostate of the Tiber, Pope Francis. Francis delivered a gospel-void invitation to unite together as a means of combatting what he called youthful “restlessness.”

“God does not leave anyone disillusioned. Jesus is waiting for you. He is the One who planted the seeds of restlessness in your heart.” Pope Francis

Sounding like a late night TV infomercial huckster, Francis offered these words of comfort for those who might be considering trying Jesus.

“Give it a try! You have nothing to lose! Try it. Then you can tell me.” Pope Francis

Promotion of Pelagian empowerment wasn’t merely limited to Francis the apostate. Others gave similar appeals for listeners to prompt God to save, to reset, and to act based on their decisions.

Dick Eastman, who heads a ministry called Every Home For Christ, offered the crowd truly heretical misrepresentation of regeneration. Citing “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved, “ Eastman said, “that’s about 2/3rds of a tweet, and you’re saved!” Jesus apparently now saves, sans that whole “repent and believe” thing, by merely indicating your choice on Twitter.

Eastman went on to name and claim the nation, including every zip code, every street, and every house, for Jesus according to the Message Bible promises of Deuteronomy 26 that were once incorrectly assigned to Israel.

The event was replete with appeals to a false Jesus, offered by the biggest names in evangelical Christendom, and thoroughly void of a presentation of the authentic Gospel of Jesus. It was a festival of apostasy. Thankfully, we have the names of those willing to forego obedience to Scripture. They should, indeed, be marked as “together” … united in the ecumenical apostasy they promote.

The event was scheduled to run from 9 am to 9 pm. God, however, had other plans. He apparently had enough of those prancing across the dais of deception and brought an early end to the apostasy.

By about 4 pm EST, authorities brought the rally to an early end due to the frequency of heat-related illnesses incurred by those in attendance. Over 400 people had to be treated, overwhelming the available EMT and medical services.

“Heat-related illnesses” … hmm. Sort of a divine warning of things to come, methinks, for those who don’t “Repent and Believe.”

And, if you already do repent and believe, you should mark these “leaders” as those eager to gather “together” for the cause of apostasy. “Avoid them.”

Together 2016, know-nothing Millennials, and conceit

The following are actual, direct quotes from the people in the millennial generation, and those who mentor them. I gathered these quotes because I notice how often the millennials and those who mentor them, speak of “this generation.”

“We’re just bringing this single message: that God is offering a reset to this generation,” Nick Hall & Reset Movement.

“Called to disciple a generation,” Jennie Allen, founder, IF:Gathering

“Helping women internalize a leadership identity” Christine Caine, PropelWomen

“Abolish injustice in 21st century”. Christine Caine, A21 campaign’s goal.

“To gather, equip, and unleash the next generation of women to live out their purpose”, IF:Gathering

“This generation is a generation of risk takers.” Bill Johnson, Charismatic Christian revivalist, itinerant speaker, author, and a Senior Pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California.

“There’s a whole Esther Generation rising right here and now and it is us!” Ann Voskamp & Amena Brown Owen.

“The Lord is bringing forth His rising remnant as the Joshua Generation,” Rob Winters, co-founder of an itinerant prophetic ministry based in Phoenix.

“Our Mandate- Mobilizing a generation of revivalists who shape culture and transform nations.” Kim Walker-Smith, Jesus Culture.

“Americans and Venezuelans can be united in one song…so we accelerate the revival in our generation.” Singer Christine D’Clario

Wait…Joshua generation? I thought it was the Esther Generation. Maybe it’s the Esther generation for girls and the Joshua generation for boys. I’m anxious to see when they will call themselves the Eve generation or the Adam generation. We do know there is a Jezebel generation. Jesus said so in Revelation 2:20-23. The boundless confidence these people have to self-identify an entire generation with Biblical heroes and heroines and their conceited call to grandiose action is hubris beyond compare.

Look at one example: Christine Caine’s A21 goal, to “Abolish injustice in 21st century”. Isn’t that what Jesus promised to do when He returns? (Isaiah 9:7, Ecclesiastes 3:17, 2 Thessalonians 1:6). Statements like those are why I say these millennials and mentors of millennials believe they are puffed-up saviors and not humble disciples.

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)

The millennial generation speaking these things and following its leaders, don’t know anything. They not only don’t know biblical truth, they don’t want to know.

Of course I don’t speak for every single person in that generation, but the bulk of them. There are so many. So very many. See how many filled the Mall at Together 2016, the most recent foremost apostate event to occur which draws these undiscerning, self-styled go-getters:

Many at Together 2016. They follow a false Christ. Above, Nick Hall, organizer.

There was a song 50 years ago by The Rascals called “How Can I Be Sure” which sang the refrain “I really, really, really want to know.” Phil Johnson opened his sermon titled “A Certain Uncertainty” by referring to that song and comparing that generation to today’s.

One of the major differences between now and then is that the Millennial Generation doesn’t really, really want to know…anything. The majority of people today like to react to things with great passion. They love slogans and hashtags, and all the symbols of deep conviction, but they really don’t believe anything in the classic sense of belief. You know, with firm conviction and bold confidence. They don’t know and they don’t believe it’s possible to know absolute truth with any kind of settled certainty.

Rejecting and thus lacking the all-important bedrock belief in the doctrines that form our faith, the millennial generation clings instead to an amorphous notion of a wimpy Jesus who provides “a better life”. Of course, anyone who dares to define exactly what that ”better life” consists of is deemed as hopelessly arrogant as the ones who declare biblical truth with certainty. But this kind of Jesus they have created is comfortable because now they can now run off in all directions as duly commissioned disciples “helping” Jesus bring that better life to the masses. We’re shaping nations! We’re changing cultures! We’re abolishing injustice! Having lost the Gospel focus, and because a vacuum must be filled, it’s now the activity in solving social ills that becomes the absolute certainty, not the Gospel.

They’re also absolutely certain that they are the one and only generation to do it.

Have you ever thought about how conceited that is?

But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow wickedness, there will be wrath and anger. (Romans 2:8)

Though they eschew biblical certainty, it’s certainty that drives them. They promote the positive and certain notion that they are the generation that will sweep in and solve everything, by resolving age-old social ills. They claim they are the ones slated to be the generation that shapes cultures, accelerates revival, and transforms cultures. Not to mention resolving injustice along the way. They promise that God has big plans for them. They promise revival and peace.

They are wrong.

The former, however, preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing they can add to the distress of my chains. (Philippians 1:17)

Big plans, revival, and justice is not what Jesus promised, to ‘this generation’ or any other. For those who truly seek Him, they are called to self-deny, slay sin, persevere in faith. This generation, and every generation, is promised not revival, but apostasy, persecution, and trouble. Far from the lofty promises of the Millennials like Nick Hall, this generation and every generation is called to slog through every day life pursuing holiness and witnessing of Jesus.

It’s nice that people like Christine Caine and Nick Hall and Jennie Allen feel they are a cut above with their sweeping call from a christ (not THE Christ). I, however, feel lucky to make it through each day simply not tarnishing my witness, dishonoring my elders, or disobeying my leaders.

Nick Hall on organizing Together 2016. Source.
Personally, I pray for souls to be saved for all eternity.

One thing that reading old missionary stories reveals is just how much of an eternal perspective they had. You see this originally among the Bible’s apostles and pastors. Their work was for disciples of ALL generations, just look at the mandates for all ages in congregations in the New Testament that cross generational lines. But if you listen to these Millennials and those who mentor them, one would think the entirety of Christendom is filled solely with hip young people and no one else.

In this 5-minute Youtube video you see Nick Hall explaining his reason for founding the Together 2016 event held this past weekend at the National Mall in Washington DC. He also founded the “Reset” movement. It was a religious event (not a Christian event) that promoted unity among “this generation”, a coalescing of denominations (which include Roman Catholics), and the certainty that God was going to make a big move at the event.

Perhaps as to that last one, Hall was right. Extreme heat shut it down. Thank you God.

Hall speaks of “this generation” three times in 15 seconds at the beginning of his speech. He says he wanted a generation-defining moment. He wanted to organize an event that would define a generation. A monumental effort to which all the nations would look.

Still from video of Nick Hall explaining his goals for Together 2016.

To really understand the grossness and puffed up ignorance of people like this and movements like this, compare what they say their goals are to Jesus and the apostles. Try to picture one of them saying what  people like Hall say. Did Paul ever tell young Timothy he was called out to define a generation? Did Peter ever tell young Mark to disciple a generation? Did John ever tell any of his disciples that they were going to change the culture? If the incarnated Jesus didn’t transform the culture while He was at His zenith of popularity, what makes people like Nick Hall, Ann Voskamp, Christine Caine, Jennie Allen and the rest think they will do it?

The problem comes from their lack of settled conviction. More to the point, they don’t know the Bible and they don’t want to know it. This means they don’t want to know Jesus. They reject Him outright. Really, you say? Really. They really, really don’t want to know. Here’s a recent statement from Ann Voskamp that the Together2016 campaign tweeted out after they’d received her commitment to attend the event.

Saying she doesn’t need an explanation from God is saying we don’t need the Bible. The Bible IS the explanation from God of who He is and Why He sent His Son. (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The explanation of God is His Son, His inspired Word. Well, this past weekend at Together 2016 Voskamp and the others received their “experience”. They experienced heat, apostasy, mutual ignorance. They experienced a hardening of their reprobate minds into worshiping the creature rather than the Creator. They experienced mutual admiration and temporal promises. They experienced a false unity and a damning conviction.

It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. (2 Corinthians 11:15)

Erdogan: Friend of ISIS and Obama

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

erdogan and ISIS

The mainstream media will never tell the public the truth, if the truth might incriminate Barack Obama.  You have to dig for the truth. You must find credible websites whose owners and writers are not politically correct.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the PM of Turkey is a monster.  Many of my readers know that I believe that BHO is America’s monster. These men are close friends. When people have very close relationships, it is reasonable to assume that they are in agreement about important issues.

Dr. Daniel Pipes, president of Middle East Forum, is a well respected syndicated writer and speaker.  I have communicated with Daniel on numerous occasions. His articles are published in the Washington Times and in many other conservative news sources.

Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:14-16 NASB)

In our continued look at the growing apostasy within evangelicalism, the more we dig, the more we are finding that those whom we have been suspecting of compromise for some time now, actually have been on that path longer than we suspected. I believe that we are just now discovering this for two reasons. No one was really looking in that direction and God is answering our prayers, opening the doors of information and…
