DECEMBER 9 A PERSONAL LOVE EXPERIENCE

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.

—Psalm 63:1

They can change the expressions in the hymnals, but whenever men and women are lost in worship they will cry out, “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee” (Psalm 63:1). Worship becomes a completely personal love experience between God and the worshiper. It was like that with David, with Isaiah, with Paul. It is like that with all whose desire has been to possess God.

This is the glad truth: God is my God.

Brother or sister, until you can say God and I, you cannot say us with any meaning. Until you have been able to meet God in loneliness of soul, just you and God—as if there were no one else in the world—you will never know what it is to love the other persons in the world.

In Canada, those who have written of the saintly Holy Anne said, “She talks to God as if there were nobody else but God and He had no other children but her.” That was not a selfish quality. She had found the value and delight of pouring her personal devotion and adoration at God’s feet. WHT089

May I know today that personal love experience with You, my God. I will seek You early, for You are my God. Amen. [1]

Australia’s Prime Minister duped into endorsing the ‘Awakening Australia’ event?

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a global cult (similar to Islam and Mormonism), that embraces an ideology of taking of the world through what is known as the Dominion Mandate. Within this mandate is another sinister agenda known as the Seven Mountain Mandate that is all about usurping and taking over the Seven Mountains Mandate (Arts/Entertainment, Business/Finance, Church/Religion, Dissemination/Media, Education/Science, Family/Health, Government/Law).

New Apostolic Reformation cult - seven mountain mandateSymbols of the mountains are actual symbols made by NAR adherents.

This is why we are seeing Paula White and her network surrounding Donald Trump in the USA and why Hillsong was aligned with Australian Prime Minister John Howard and other Australian political leaders. Unlike Christianity, they openly showcase these associations, encouraging their movements with ‘sermons’ about the influence they are having in these ‘mountains’.

Recently we here at CWC noted footage of the Australian Prime Minister endorsing Bethel’s…

Sunday’s Hymn: From Heaven High I Come to You — Rebecca Writes

From heaven high I come to you,
I bring you tidings good and new;
Glad tidings of great joy I bring,
Whereof I now will say and sing:

To you this night is born a child
Of Mary, chosen virgin mild;
This little child, of lowly birth,
Shall be the joy of all the earth.

This is the Christ, our God and Lord,
Who in all need shall aid afford;
He will himself your Saviour be
From all your sins to set you free.

These are the tokens ye shall mark:
The swaddling-clothes and manger dark:
There ye shall find the Infant laid
By whom the heav’ns and earth were made.

Now let us all with gladsome cheer
Go with the shepherds and draw near
To see the precious gift of God,
Who hath his own dear Son bestowed.

Welcome to earth, thou noble Guest,
Through whom the sinful world is blest!
In my distress thou com’st to me;
What thanks shall I return to thee?

—Martin Luther

WILDFIRE: French President Macron’s Stunning Defeat In Paris As Its Citizens Rise Up To Reject Globalism And Climate Taxation — Now The End Begins

Less than a month ago, French President Emmanuel Macron staked his claim as the flag-bearer for globalism. In a speech to 60 world leaders at the Arc de Triomphe, he eulogized the United Nations and declared nationalism the “betrayal” of patriotism.

Don’t let the fake news media steal this story from you by underreporting on it, what is happening in France right now is very important. The French people have risen up en masse to reject the globalist policies of their boy president Macron, and to reject the Climate tax he is attempting to place on the backs of the French people.

“France is no longer France. And this world better be very careful, and they better get very tough and very smart.” Donald Trump, July 27, 2016, as presidential candidate at a rally in Doral, Florida.

You see, the real and actual goal of the proponents of the Climate Change movement has nothing to do with the climate, and everything to do with global domination and enslavement. Why do think there is a tax attached to it? A wise man once said, “when something doesn’t make sense, there’s a buck in it!”. And he was right.

President Trump seemingly stood alone when he walked away from the Paris Climate Accord last year, and the gathering of global leaders last month. But the people of France, and the 63 million in America who voted him in office, are proudly standing with him now. Trump was right about the Climate Change Taxation movement, it’s a hoax, and as Paris burns right now all of Europe is paying close attention.

Macron’s Defeat in Paris Sounds Alarm for Europe

FROM BLOOMBERG: Last Saturday, tear gas and cobblestones flew in the same part of Paris as protesters trashed the iconic monument and demanded Macron’s embattled government withdraw a proposed fuel-tax increase. For the first time in his presidency, he backed down. It was a humbling moment for opponents of the populist revolts that spawned Donald Trump.

Europe has seen many a critical juncture in recent years, from the Greek debt crisis to the anti-immigrant backlash against refugees and Britain’s Brexit vote. Rarely, though, have so many political vultures been circling around one leader with so much at stake for the world order.

Poland is flirting with the far right and nationalist parties cajoled by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban are plotting a rebellion at European Parliamentary elections in May. Meanwhile, Italy has collided with the European Union by taking a defiant stand on its budget spending.

With the EU’s erstwhile firefighter, Angela Merkel, planning to step down as German chancellor, the baton was supposed to pass to Macron to uphold liberal democracy.  But Merkel’s power on the world stage was underpinned by a political fortress at home, and the French leader looks anything but solid.

“You can’t make speeches about defending the international order when your popularity is at 20 percent and there are protesters in the street,” said Nicholas Dungan, a Paris-based senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. “It’s very difficult to get your credibility back.”

It’s a stark contrast to the weekend of Nov. 11 as leaders marked a century since the end of World War I. Macron championed the need for global cooperation while Trump cut an isolated figure. Europe’s divisions were laid bare that day as Polish government officials marched through Warsaw with far-right groups to mark the country’s Independence Day. Macron, though, stood firm as Europe’s statesman.

The images televised around the world last weekend were of burning cars in the French capital. The retreat by the 40-year-old French leader was mocked by Trump. Macron admitted, via his prime minister, that he’s not been able to connect with the French people. “No tax merits putting our nation’s unity in danger,” Edouard Philippe said in a televised address.

The trouble for opponents of Trump-style nativism and protectionism is that there’s no one else to take up his mantle, Dungan said. READ MORE

December 9 What Matters Most

Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth,Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.

Philippians 1:18

The word “preached” in today’s verse means “to proclaim with authority.” Regardless of the personal cost, Paul was determined that Christ be proclaimed with authority.

Even when Paul’s detractors preached the true gospel, it had an impact. A selfishly motivated preacher can still be used of God because the truth is more powerful than the package it comes in.

Paul lived to see the gospel proclaimed—he didn’t care who received the credit. That’s to be the attitude of every pastor, teacher, elder, deacon, leader, and layperson in the church. In all that he suffered, Paul didn’t quit, lash out, break down, or lose his joy. That’s because the cause of Christ was being furthered and His name proclaimed. It was all Paul cared about. That’s an attitude the grace of Christ instills in all who would be godly.[1]

Trust Is Failing On Both Sides Of The Pond | Zero Hedge

“And as we approach the moment where a critical mass of people see the costs of maintaining this vacuum of moral courage we call a society rise above the benefits of it the closer we are to the worst kind of chaos…”

Authored by Tom Luongo,

I’ve been warning for a while now that we are pushing towards an inflection point in history.  With each passing week it feels like events are accelerating as change to the status quo is everywhere.

In Europe, the EU leadership and Theresa May are so desperate to stop Brexit they can’t stop lying about everything.  In one day we have May’s government found in contempt of Parliament for not releasing the full legal advice of her Brexit deal and the European Court of Justice pronounce that the U.K. can unilaterally cancel Brexit if they want to.

They are this desperate because there is a real probability of May’s horrific deal not getting the thumbs up from parliament. That said, the arm-twisting behind the scenes is likely epic as one by one May’s remaining cabinet members come out in favor of the deal because they see they have no other option.

At the same time France is literally on fire thanks to a good ol’ fashioned tax revolt, which reviled, unprepared and arrogant President Emmanuel Macron cannot fathom.  Macron’s handling of these protests has been abysmal, displaying a level of contempt for the French people so profound he may wind up more hated in the end than Theresa May.

Both of these odious people make no bones about their real loyalties and the more they talk, the more they try to sell their latest betrayal of national interests for Brussels’ the more the intensity of the hatred of them increases.

This is not a linear thing.  It’s the kind of situation that goes from murmurs and shrugs to outright violence in a matter of days. 

Especially when you come out and tell the very nationalistic French people that nationalism is akin to evil.

In Macron’s case raising the tax on diesel fuel was a bridge too far.  Pathetic global warming, globalist ideologue that he is, he castigates the people who are materially harmed by this tax as ‘thugs’ and then doubles down when they get even madder.

So it’s no surprise that his calling a moratorium on it for six months was rejected by the protesters.

They know they can’t trust Macron.

With France’s tax rates already nearly the highest in the so-called first world the burden of this tax would have fallen heaviest on the people just barely surviving existing ruinous government policy.  All taxes are marginally regressive, even progressive income taxes.

And those taxes which are a flat rate tax on a per item basis are the most regressive.  Just because you make more money doesn’t automatically mean you are going to eat more food or drive your car more.

Hence, the tax falls disproportionately as a percentage of marginal income on the lower economic strata.

And Macron tried to sell himself as a reformer.  There’s nothing unique about raising taxes in France.  If Macron wanted to be novel, he would have lowered fuel taxes.  You improve the lives of people by removing the burden of paying for worthless little leeches like him and the massive bureaucracy that supports his patent idiocy like taxing fuel to combat global warming.

The less said about Theresa May the better but just so everyone is clear May gave the EU everything they wanted, not because she’s a bad negotiator but because she’s a bad liar.  Every day she lies telling everyone who will listen (and that number is dropping daily) that she’s working for the people of Britain.

No she is not.  She’s working for the British ruling class and its entrenched bureaucracy who are in league with their counterparts in Brussels to erect an unassailable oligarchy across Europe.

May, Juncker, Tusk and Merkel have intentionally run the clock out while doing the political calculus that the Tories are so scared of a Labour takeover that they’ll all roll over in the end, hold their nose and vote for this complete sell out of what’s left of British sovereignty.

But, if you think I’ve been harsh to this point I’ve saved the best for my own so-called President, Donald Trump.  For a while I gave Trump the benefit of the doubt, thinking he was doing his best beset by a U.S. political establishment which is the worst kind of cruel.

But, after the fiasco of the mid-terms and his systematic capitulation to all things neoconservative, Trump has become a parody of himself on foreign policy. By allowing the paranoid John Bolton to convince Trump that everything neocon is in the interest of America First Trump has now embraced every foreign policy lie he campaigned against.

His own lack of moral center has led to his having a complete lack of moral courage in confronting the vast apparatus arrayed against him.

To the point where he doesn’t announce policy decisions that he knows are unpopular with not only his base but also the center of the country he needs to get re-elected in 2020.  He leaves that job to the disgusting and stupid Mike Pompeo.

Trump’s need to be liked is his Achilles’ heel and it’s been used by the Deep State to destroy him.

He fancies himself a deal-maker and so it was easy for him to be led by his nose (because remember, he doesn’t believe in anything except leverage) by Bolton et.al. to unilaterally abrogate any treaty that is inconvenient to their cause of world subjugation on the basis of it not being fair to America.

Hence, Russia’s new weapons are something the U.S. can’t deal with so to counter them the INF treaty has to go.  It’s regrettable, a shame, bad, whatever Trump tweets out about it. 

The imperial power always grows increasingly paranoid that everyone is out to destroy them.

Because the imperial power knows in its heart that it’s awful.  That it has abused and destroyed people the world over and they are angry.  They know this is true and because they would want revenge, they expect everyone else to want the same thing.

The politically strong dictate and only negotiate out of weakness.  Leaving the INF treaty while leaving the door open to a deal is an admission that Russia’s weapons have to be countered by breaking the treaty to put missiles on Russia’s doorstep because Bolton can’t conceive of a day where Russia and the U.S. are not adversaries.

I’ve said from the beginning that Trump would have to allow the neocons to run things for a while and then when their schemes ran aground, he would reverse them all and use that reversal to win the broad support of a war weary and pissed off American electorate, regardless of the Democrats’ blatant and upfront voter fraud.

But, Trump is beyond that now.  He told us of his hatred for Iran on the campaign trail and all Bolton and Mattis and the rest of the Gang That Can’t Invade Straight had to do was sell Trump on the tired canard that more death, more troops, more weapons is the path to victory.

Trump is so desperate for a couple of tenths of GDP he sold out his people for this.  He’ll stay in office just long enough to go from savior to villain, just like every other potential U.S. reformer.

The take away from the failures of these three main leaders of the increasingly unfree world is that confidence in them, their governments and the systems that make up and support them is failing rapidly.

And confidence lost is never regained.  Once the public trust is breached it is never regained.  And that’s where rapid societal change sprouts from, catching those who think they are in control off guard completely, like Macron was over the diesel protests. 

All of these people are weak-minded fools.  James O’Keefe of Project Veritas Action wrote a brilliant article over the summer in which he defined the difference between moral courage and physical courage.  Nearly every man is willing to lay down his life for his cause.  That’s physical courage.

It’s easy you don’t have to live with the fallout of your acts since you’re dead.

But moral courage is willing to be the villain, to stand athwart the crowd and risk your reputation for what you believe in.

This is why the Tories in parliament will vote for May’s Brexit Deal.  They don’t want to be blamed for the mess of a hard Brexit they fear.  This is why Macron will implement the worst neoliberal policies.   He doesn’t want to be called a traitor by the media and oligarchy who made him.

And it’s why Trump will not MAGA. He was willing to Drain the Swamp as long as it didn’t cost him and his family his brand and his reputation.  He was willing to talk the talk but not walk the walk.  Now he just rambles on Twitter like a pathetic loser while Putin’s prophecy about his presidency comes true.

“Presidents change,” he said to Oliver Stone in the Putin Interviews, “Policy doesn’t.”

And as we approach the moment where a critical mass of people see the costs of maintaining this vacuum of moral courage we call a society rise above the benefits of it the closer we are to the worst kind of chaos.

Corrie Ten Boom: The TRUE Face of Christianity During WWII

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

When I read ignorant statements about Christians taking part in the mass genocide of the Jews in WWII, I seriously want to scream.

When people speak of the Vatican’s part in propping up Hitler during those dark years – what they do not understand is that Catholicism is NOT Christianity – not in any way, shape or form. I am convinced that Satan himself inspired the creation of the Catholic Church.

First of all, are we as born again believers not under the Covenant of Grace?  Of course we are.  Although Martin Luther did not finish well in his ministry, we can thank him for having the courage and conviction to post his 95 theses on the door of the Catholic Church. It ultimately cost him his life.

Luther was attempting to show the leaders of that cult this Bible doctrine:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith…

Comey’s testimony imitated Sgt. Schultz with amnesia

How on earth did a man with such a terrible memory, and so ignorant of the operations of an agency he headed, manage to have the stellar career that James Comey enjoyed (until Donald Trump fired him). In testimony Friday, like fictional comedic icon Sergeant Schultz, a Nazi prison camp guard, he claimed he knew nothing, and what he didn’t know, he forgot:

Rep. Mark Meadows totaled up the denials:

‘I don’t know’ – 166 times
‘I don’t remember’ – 71 times
‘I don’t recall’ – 8 times

James Comey, we are told by many people including conservatives like Andrew McCarthy, is a very smart fellow, an enormously talented administrator. He certainly had an amazing career in the federal government, and as a senior executive at Lockheed Marti, the nation’s largest defense contractor for a few years, earning millions of dollars. The investigations he claimed ignorance of were being run out of FBI headquarters, which is very unusual. It would be understandable for Comey to be ignorant of investigations run out of a field office, but this was under his nose and direct supervision. 

It is very curious – an aggressive prosecutor might say suspicious – that someone with his track record would claim under oath to have known so little and forgotten so much. Especially a man formerly charged with being the top law enforcement officer in the country.
