OBAMA CARTOONS REMOVED~Why? An IRS investigation thought to have been brought on by one of the presidential campaigns, threatened the tax-exempt status of one of the main Watchmen On The Wall-a man (Hal Lindsey) who we all know well (use your imagination). So to keep everyone happy-and to be able to stay online (both him & me), I had to remove all of my Obama cartoons. In the future, I will not be able to use the Presidential campaign for subject matter. So what about that First Amendment?
NOT BY GOD
What Obama really said about evolution: I'm a Christian, and I believe in parents being able to provide children with religious instruction without interference from the state. But I also believe our schools are there to teach worldly knowledge and science. I believe in evolution, and I believe there's a difference between science and faith. That doesn't make faith any less important than science. It just means they are two different things. And I think it's a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don't hold up to scientific inquiry.
Will America Be Healed?
Was America pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities or chastened for our well-being? Or by HIS scourging will She be healed? Will Her next leader be able to unite her? The Clintons? No way. Obama? You gotta' be kidding! McCain? Maybe. Pray for America, Her survival hinges on the Presidential elections. Why isn't America in "End Times" prophecy? A Democratic win?
A Change We Can Believe In...
Is Obama really who he says he is? From all we can gather, he is a Muslim, his middle name is Hussein, and was educated in a madrassa ~ see, Hillary's team has questions about Obama's Muslim background/. Does America need a Muslim as her next president?
The Logic of the Spirit
Some time back, the Salvation Army refused to hire an atheist on the grounds that a person couldn't work for a Christian organization if he didn't believe in Christ.
The New York Civil Liberties Union launched an immediate lawsuit charging the organization with religious discrimination.
The case arose after The Salvation Army began to require all employees in its Social Services for Children division to fill out a form on which they:
a) identify their church affiliation and all other churches attended for the past decade,
b) authorize their religious leaders to reveal private communications to the Salvation Army; and
c) pledge to adhere to the religious mission of The Salvation Army which, according to The Salvation Army, is to "preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
The mainstream media went ballistic. Headlines like "Non-Christians Need Not Apply" gave way to "the Salvation Army's War on the Poor" and "A Tale of a Greedy Charity."
When the ACLU isn't going after the Salvation Army for religious discrimination, it is going after the Boy Scouts for sexual discrimination.
It sounds like the punch line for a joke: "What are you gonna do? Sue the Salvation Army for being religious?"
Or maybe a challenge . . . "Sure. I'll believe that when the Boy Scouts get sued for not having gay scoutmasters."
I mean, it sounds crazy. The Salvation Army being sued for expecting its employees to concur with the organization's mission statement.
The employee who filed the lawsuit said she worked for the Salvation Army for 25 years and was 'blindsided' by the organization's 'new' rules.
(Gasp! The Salvation Army is Christian??? So THAT'S what that 'Salvation' part stands for. . . who knew?)
It is difficult to imagine a more ridiculous lawsuit.
The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 by William and Catherine Booth and was dedicated from its inception to the mission of "bringing Christian salvation to the poor, destitute and hungry by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs."
But the plaintiff in the suit worked for the Sally Ann for a quarter century, starting on that job more than a hundred years after that organization wrote its mission statement, and complained in her suit that she was 'blindsided' to learn it was dedicated to the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
On the other side of the spectrum, a Christian biologist has filed a lawsuit against the federally-funded Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
Nathaniel Abraham was fired in 2004 because he did not believe in evolution. Abraham is a 'zebrafish specialist' (whatever that means) and he claims his civil rights were violated by his firing.
He claims that shortly after he told his supervisor that he believed the Bible presented an accurate account of creation, he was dismissed for his beliefs.
Abraham, who was dismissed eight months after he was hired, said he was willing to do research using evolutionary concepts but drew the line at the choice between accepting Darwin's theory of evolution as scientific fact or losing his job.
The Woods Hole group said in a statement it firmly believed its actions and those of its employees in the case were "entirely lawful" and that it does not discriminate.
The reason that Abraham was forced to file a lawsuit was because the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination dismissed his complaint, ruling in favor of Woods Hole.
It argued (perfectly logically) that it would be difficult for Woods Hole to employ someone to advance a theory that the employee disagrees with -- and upheld his firing.
I say it was 'perfectly logical' to dismiss Abraham under these circumstances because it IS perfectly logical.
The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination concluded that Abraham knew, or should have known, that Woods Hole's biology was rooted in the theory of evolution.
Once again, that is completely logical. If I was planning to hire an editorial assistant, I wouldn't hire a Buddhist, or a Muslim, or even just any old Christian.
Since the Omega Letter approaches Scripture from a premillennial, Dispensational perspective, I wouldn't hire a preterist, for example.
That isn't discrimination -- I don't care WHAT they believe. I just care what they teach in my name.
Abraham's argument makes as much sense logically as a high-school French teacher complaining about being dismissed for opposing French classes.
So why is it so hard for the courts to apply the same logic when it comes to Christian ministries or issues of Christian faith? If Woods Hole can require a belief in evolution, why is it discriminatory for the Salvation Army to require a belief in God?
Or for the Boy Scouts to refuse to hire adult supervisors who may view young boys as sex objects? There is no corresponding effort to legitimize men as Girl Scout leaders for the same good and logical reasons.
Why does this same logic reverse itself when the target is a Christian organization?
Things that are natural are natural, that is to say, they follow a natural, logical progression. So logically, a creationist would make a lousy researcher on evolution, and, if one continues to follow the logic, dismissing him makes as much sense as would the Salvation Army dismissing an atheist.
But while the courts can see the logic in the Wood's Hole case, they cannot grasp it when it comes to the Boy Scouts or the Salvation Army. This is evidence of both the existence of God and the Divine truth of the Scriptures.
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1st Corinthians 2:14)

SO MUCH FOR HAMAS
The Lord tells us that Jerusalem will exist forever--we'll all be there, but there'll be no room for Islam. Only those of us who love Jesus will be given a ticket!
Did President Bush see this cartoon? I drew it a few years ago, and then last year I got a call from the "Waco Tribune" asking if they could use it to go with an article they were doing on the Biblical "end times" (I sent them this newer, edited rendition), which ran on a Sunday when GW was at his ranch. We have also received e-mail from President Bush giving his compliments on our cartoons, so who knows? I personally think that he did see it. The rapture (as this cartoon illustrates) could come today, because all the prerequisites written of in Bible prophecy have been fulfilled, and when you consider that all other Bible prophecy has come to pass--even down to minute details, it's only logical to assume that the "end times" prophecies will come to pass too. And the Bible tells us that only those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior will be taken up to meet with Jesus in the clouds ~ are you ready to spend eternity with the Lord--or the other place? He could be coming today! If your desire is to be included, then please say a prayer something like this, "Dear Jesus, every time I drive I get into a wreck--and I've been in too many wrecks, so I'm going to climb into the back seat and let You drive from now on, for the rest of my life. Thank You Jesus, and with this prayer, I give my heart to you (and you've got to mean it!).
THE BIBLE IN FIFTY WORDS
This great idea (author unknown) was submitted by David D. from Oklahoma City--now he gets a free signed print! And many thanks to the Lamb & Lion Ministries bi-monthly magazine, "Lamplighter", from where Dave got the idea. The "Lamplighter" is a really good (and free--no strings attached) bi-monthly, "End-Times", magazine that you can subscribe to by going to their website, www.lamblion.com/. The Lamb & Lion Ministry also has a fairly large TV ministry, and you can find out their scheduling at their website.
ANOTHER ILLEGAL CARTOON
We feel that if the Democrats win the Presidential elections next year, our freedom to express our love for Jesus will be either changed, or be taken from us altogether. Perhaps even if the Dems don't win. So in a short time--if the rapture doesn't come first, a cartoon like this may be enough to get us arrested and thrown into jail. It is realistic to imagine that in the near future, we may have to be looking over our shoulders all the time. Let's all pray that God's will be done in the USA!
Is it the Bush Administration who is pushing Israel (Olmert) into giving up the land that God entrusted to Israel for the sake of keeping America's SUV's on the road? Why? A few more gallons of gas? Are they blind--is this what Jesus meant when He said they have eyes but do not see? Why?
Is Olmert (along with Bush & Rice) giving away all the land that God Almighty Himself gave to Israel, to appease the Islamic countries that the US is dependent on for oil? That's Pure Insanity! Or is it just a Worn Out Roadmap (read over & over) that infuriates the Lord. So what will these guys say on Judgement Day--or will God squash them like bugs?
HAL LINDSEY CARTOONS IN IRAQ (a soldier's letter)
Message: I requested downloads of the following cartoons "Know Jesus", Iraqi Independence" and "Power for Peace". I have read many of these great cartoons. However, I believe that these particular would be useful in posting on bulletin boards for all to see (particularly Iraqi Muslims who work in our compound). I looking forward to the many souls that will be touched for the Kingdom while I stay in Iraq. Thank you for your gift and generosity. May God continue to Bless your work for the Kingdom. In His Name, MSG Mark B. Hanna , US Embassy, Baghdad, Iraq
JOHN'S COMMENT: I CONSIDER IT AN HONOR FOR MY CARTOONS TO BE USED BY THE MILITARY. ALL OF MY CARTOONS ARE FREE (SENT AS JPEG E-MAILS) FOR ALL ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS ASK.
WRITTEN LAST SPRING--As the bitter cold of winter passes, the warmth of spring
will soon kiss the ground. Seeds, plants and trees long thought of as dead, will come to
life again. In the same way, our faith when peppered with large doses of prayer, takes on
new life and becomes a powerful weapon in the hands of our Lord. May our renewed
faith cause us to say to our heavenly Father "...may Your kingdom come and may Your
will be done". Patricia A. Rule
THE RIGHT CHOICE
Wrong choice, the blue bird--Rudy Giuliani?
BE A TERRORIST...BUY A HUMMER
The root of America's problems in the world is her dependence on foreign oil. However, the problem with America's love for GIANT SUV's & RV's, and the war on terror are two different issues with the Saudis as their common root.
The Underground e-church
From Jack Kinsella's "Omega Letter Intelligence Digest" (Jack's Daily Newsletter)
Vol: 70 Issue: 30 - Monday, July 30, 2007........Jack Kinsella's website
Special Member's Report: The Underground E-Church
By now, some of you may have noticed that a lot of our subject material has disappeared from the main page, unless you are logged into the website.
We've either moved, or are in the process of moving, our archives, the majority of our commentary, and most of the reader forums inside the member's area of the website.
Recent legislation in Canada and similar pending legislation in the US view open, straightforward non-politically correct speech as 'hate crimes' rather than free speech.
A conservative blogging website, freedominion.ca is under investigation by the Canadian Human Rights Commission after someone complained that a comment posted that offended both Islam and gays.
The comment that prompted the investigation said, "I can't figure out why the homosexuals I ran into are on the side of the Muslims. After all, Muslims who practice Sharia law tend to advocate beheading homosexuals."
To my mind, it is a reasonable question, given the fact that the second part of the statement is factual. Ask any Muslim fundamentalist.
It does seem odd that the gay rights movement would ally itself with radical Islam.
It makes as much sense as a 1930's German gay rights organization siding with the Nazis.
But somebody found it offensive enough to file a complaint against freedominion.ca with the CHRC, a court that can uniquely boast that it has never found a suspect innocent.
Compare the offending comment to a couple reader replies to a column at the Huffington Post last week regarding Bible-believing Christians:
" I agree Dap . . .thank you Max . . these guys need to be exposed and stopped . . . put behind bars more like . . . they are insane." - Macready
"When terms like "Jesus Freak" and "Bible Thumper" prove woefully inadequate to describe such creatures, there's always the clinical yet entirely apt "dangerous psychopath". - willfarnaby
I only chose the first couple, I could have filled a page with similarly hateful anti-Christian sentiment, but why wallow in it? The message is pretty clear.
Advocating mass imprisonment of 'insane' Christians is protected 'free speech' that doesn't raise an eyebrow, while pondering Islam's relationship with gay rights is 'hate speech' deserving of a federal investigation.
It is completely in synch with the Bible's outline of the social order of the last days, so I've been expecting something like this for some years.
But now that it is here, I have to decide how to respond.
There are two choices. we can speak out boldly in public until someone is offended and files a complaint. The website membership is small, and barely covers its own operating expenses now. It wouldn't take a conviction to shut us down, the legal expenses would be enough on their own.
But the Omega Letter's purpose is to equip you with the information you need as the days grow short so you are "ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" (1st Peter 3:15)
Our aim is the "perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" (Ephesians 4:12)
Our vehicle is by providing a safe haven on the net where like-minded believers can fellowship, learn from one another, exhort one another, discuss doctrine and share their burdens with one another.
We can't do any of that if the government shuts down our servers while investigating an 'offensive' public post.
It is a proven principle of war to choose one's battles carefully. This is a battle that can only be won in principle by losing the war.
The only other choice remaining is to go underground, so to speak.
Our members pay a membership fee, which is as close to building a fence around internet territory as one can go. It also tends to weed out those who are cruising the net looking for somebody to offend them; there are lots of places they can go be offended for free.
We aren't doing it in order to boost our subscriber base -- we anticipate the exact opposite. Websites don't grow by hiding them. But it greatly reduces the risk of our giving unintentional offense to some protected agenda group.
We are manually reviewing each column in our commentary archives before releasing them individually back into the non-suscriber database. The briefing archives, and all member's forums will be invisible to non-subscribers.
Posting privileges to the public commentary forums will be according to member status and all posts will be delayed, subject to our review. All publicly viewable posts will be subject to review prior to release.
Most of the changes will be invisible to logged-in members at the website, but if you aren't logged in, all the links to the member's areas will be gone, as will a lot of the front page content.
(If you've forgotten your password, there is a link on the password page where you can retrieve it by email.)
For now, we'll continue the Omega Letter emails, but we are working on alternatives for the day when we won't be able to deliver them via regular email anymore.
I am not happy about the necessity to go underground, and I am particularly worried about the impact the move will have on the OL's subscriber base. But my first obligation is to preserve our existing fellowship.
I knew from Bible prophecy that one day, Christians would face censorship and be forced underground. I've been making observations over the years, with each new piece of legislation, that it was coming. But it was always 'someday."
But somehow, that doesn't cushion the shock of knowing that 'someday' has arrived.
R U Ready?~Updated Clouds of war over the Middle East are getting
darker. Syria is amassing forces and arms along its borders with Israel and Lebanon. It's
also re-arming its Hezbollah minions in Lebanon. Syria has announced that Israel has
until September to return the Golan Heights. If not, Syria will begin a planned campaign
against Jewish communities in northern Israel, but before Syrian President Bashar
Assad pulls the trigger, he would be well advised to acquaint himself with Israel's option
of last resort-- the "Samson Option". The "Samson Option" is based on the well-known
story of Samson in the Bible, who--after being captured by the Philistines--brought down
Dagon's temple in Gaza, killing himself along with a huge number of Philistines. What this
means is that the Israelis are willing, if necessary, to blow up the Middle East--including
themselves, if they have to do so in order to defeat their Arab foes.
With all the Liberal Media (all the media) at her disposal, Nancy Pelosi's Left Big Toe gives
her excruciating pain when she stubs it on little (compared to the heavy load she was
carrying), "Talk Radio". Oh Well... ...How to sway an election--when it don't look like ya
can beat 'em, change the rules!
God's Word may not be liked by everyone, but it can never be changed. It's the Word of
God, and who are we to think that we can change it to be softened, or molded into a way
that is more comfortable to the way mankind is living in these latter days? The Bible still
gets in the way of homosexuals, perverts, criminals--murderers, thieves, adulterers etc.,
and worst of all, child molesters. Taking the Bible out of our public schools left a big
"anything goes" door open to America's children--if all the pages of God's Word were to
be torn out, think of how much more insane this country would be!
NO WEAPON IS MORE POWERFUL THAN OUR PRAYERS! Pleeeze pray
for the safety of our troops and that they all return home safely--plus
pray for the wounded and for the famlies of the soldiers who won't
make it back. Thank you!
AMERICA IN PROPHECY? It seems to us that God would not have a place in the
"End Times Prophecies" for quitters and cowards. What Do You Think?
...could it be that the goal of the American and European governments is attempting to bring peace to the Middle East by appeasing Islamic countries, through abolishing the state of Israel--one piece at a time?
YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH
A beautiful poem sent to us by Jani Kristian Savolainen (we've never seen a rapture poem
before), a Spirit filled man who lives in Finland ~ Jani instructed us to use his poem in
any way that we should choose. Please Right-Click on it to save and send to whoever
you think would be blessed by it. Thank you Jani & thank You Jesus!
Not On MY Little Plane!
Jesus prophesied in Luke 21 that there would be changes in the sun prior to His Second
Coming ~ We believe that is the reason for global warming, not Al Gore's claims that
"the sky is falling!".
RIGHT TO KILL
This cartoon speaks for itself ~ a woman's right to choose is no less than a woman's
legal right to kill her baby. I pray God will have mercy on America!
WHILE TERRORISTS PLAY
Who is the real terrorist?
THE GITMO SWING
Last week while appearing on the TV show, "The View", Rosie O'Donnell swore (she must
have had secret info that nobody else was privy to) that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed
the master-mind of 9/11 and many other world-wide terrorist attacks, was tortured (by the
Bush administration, of course--perhaps by President Bush himself) into confessing his
crimes before a military tribunal held at the Guantanamo (Gitmo) military prison facility.
But then Rosie really does swing upside-down (to read about this unusual quirk click on
the link on the cartoon itself), which would scare most people into saying anything! You
wouldn't want to see this left-wing bat hanging in your house!
HAVE YOU PRAYED FOR YOUR PRESIDENT TODAY?
"I have not stated the matter too strongly, you may agree mildly or you may disagree
violently, but the time has come for us to face the duties and obligations of our
citizenship and willingly to assume the disciplines imposed by the things we believe in,
before we are forced to accept the disciplines of tyranny.
I for one am tired about hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens. The
time has come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of
our citizenship. It's just as plain and clear as that." Dr. Peter Marshall (A Man Called
Peter) in a 1944 sermon. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU PRAYED FOR PRESIDENT BUSH?
NO LIFE JACKET
Many thanks to Dave Cogburn who came up with the original idea for this cartoon--and
may the Lord bless you abundantly Dave!
All Bible prophecies have come to pass (all true, including minute details), pertaining
to everything except the Biblical "end times". Of those prophecies, the only one left
relating to all the Christians who know Jesus as their personal Lord & Savior is the
rapture of the church--the Lord Jesus coming in the clouds to collect His church before a
great tribulation, such as the world has ever known. Besides the Scripture about the
rapture as quoted in this cartoon, are verses 16 & 17 in chapter four of the book of First
Thessalonians. "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first,
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to
meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord." So there you have it;
two places in the Bible where we are told that Jesus will return for His church. And that
we will be given new bodies--there'll be no more need for orthopedic devices like in this
cartoon! New Bodies! No More Pain! Are you ready? Do you know Jesus as your
personal Lord and Savior? He's coming soon--don't be LEFT BEHIND! If you don't know
Jesus, NOW is the time to ask Him into your heart. All you need to do is ask Him--
Salvation is a FREE gift!
After watching Hal Lindsey's most recent TV show, all we could think of was that the
angels Jesus is bringing with Him at the rapture must be like musicians in an orchestra
waiting for the curtain to rise. Are you ready to meet the Lord? If not, NOW is the time to
invite Him into your heart. Tomorrow may be too late--don't be left behind!
WOLF IN THE WHITEHOUSE
I Googled "Zalmay Khalilzad", and found 819,000 stories about him. I suggest doing it yourself.
Zalmay--or better known as "Oil Zalmay" has been hanging around the Whitehouse for a very long
time, and it is believed that Zalmay is one of the main reasons why GW insists that Islam is a
"peaceful religion that was hijacked by a few radicals". Bush's appointment of Zalmay as
America's ambassador to the United Nations is political cronyism at it's very worst. It's a sad day to
see America's President--a man who claims to be a devout Christian, appoint a man who, if faithful
to his religion, cannot put US interests ahead of the greater good of world-wide Islam. I could go on
and on, but instead, please look for yourself--Google Zalmay Khalilzad, and then, after reading about
him, ask yourself, "in these times when America is fighting for her life against Islamic fascism--which
desires to take over the world, is it healthy for America to be represented to the rest of the world by
a man who by any standards, cannot walk on two sides of the street at the same time?" Is that what
Bush is trying to do--appease Islam and Christiandom at the same time? It will never work! The clock
is ticking, scientists just this week advanced the "Nuclear Clock" by two minutes (it's now 5 minutes
to 12). Do you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior? If not, tomorrow may be too late.
THE REELING CUP
Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples
around...And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. Zechariah 12: 2 & 3
God Save America!
America isn't mentioned in Biblical "end times" prophecy. Why? If the Democrats win the
House & Senate, it will be the beginning of the end for America. After all, how can it be
expected for God to bless a country that condones the killing of babies and sexual
perversion--plus the Democratic party seems to bless all forms of immorality.
THE FUTURE--ALMOST OVER?
In Revelation 4:1 the church age ends with the rapture. Revelation 8:2 (the cartoon image) describes a horrible nuclear holocaust that will take place on the earth after that. This will be experienced by those who are not raptured--those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Our prayer is that you will accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior before it's too late (don't be left behind!). Do it now! Simply pray, "Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I repent. I accept Your redeeming work on the cross of Calvary for my sins. From this day forward, I am no longer my own, I belong to You. You are now my Lord and Savior. Thank You for dying for my salvation! I love you, Jesus."
SPRING-ING TO LIFE
ALL MY CHILDREN
This is an idea that was given to me by my good friend Mike, who graciously volunteers
his time to maintain this ministry's computers. In Mike's own words, "the media keeps
portraying Israel as the 'bad guy', when all Hezbollah/the Lebanese government needed
to do, was to return the two soldiers they kidnapped from inside of Israel's borders".
Hezbollah holds the key to ending this bloody war--turn over the soldiers.
ALL THE PIECES FIT TOGETHER
A few years ago, the idea for this cartoon came to me, however due to the enormous pain
I was dealing with at that time, my artwork wasn't very good, and since then (now that it's
much better--thank You Jesus!), I've always wanted to re-draw it. With the recent events
in the Middle East, all the pieces seem to be fitting together, so I feel now is the
appropriate time to illustrate the joyous time of when we meet Jesus face to face. The
message of this cartoon is one that rings loud and clear--Jesus is coming in the clouds
to meet us VERY SOON. The question is, "Are YOU ready to meet Him?".
ARAFAT'S NIGHTMARE: FRANK-UN-STEIN
The so-called Palestinian-Israeli peace process is a huge misnomer. The current
government, spear-headed by Hamas--a creation of Arafat's life-long political arm
-twisting, is no more interested in peace with Israel than Iran is at appeasing the
international community. Palestine lies at the brink of a great civil war, with
Islamic brother killing Islamic brother. This is not what Arafat had envisioned. This
cartoon depicts Arafat's ghost rising from the ashes desperately trying to remind the
present terrorist government that they should be fighting the Jews and not each other.
The Liberal media is bent on the destruction of America--what they do now would have been considered as treason at anytime in the past.
NO FOREIGN INTERFERENCE
While Iran adamantly demands "No Foreign Interference" in the Middle East, it sponsors (100%) HEZBOLLAH, a violent terrorist group based in Lebanon (closely linked to al Quida), which preaches hate world-wide, and is responsible for violent terrorist attacks against Israel and the rest of the world. Iran hides behind the name, HEZBOLLAH.
LAND FOR NOTHING...
...or, "Priceless Parcels." Reference Ezekiel 36:5, where the God of Abraham refers to the land (of Israel) as HIS LAND. So when Mr. Olmert is parceling out the land for peace, he is in fact parceling out The Almighty's land.
A WORLD WITHOUT BIRDS...
...Avian Flu? "Don't worry," the press (and our government) says only birds get it. So what happens when all the birds are gone? Earth's ecology is turned upside down. The bugs win--and then, famine. When asked what would be the signs of His second coming, Jesus said, "there will be plagues and famines." He also said there would be wars and rumors of war, plenty of earthquakes, and more. Then Jesus went on to say, "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." Do you know Jesus? Most of those "things" have already come to pass, so Jesus may come for His church today. Are you ready?
NEWEST WEAPON AGAINST FREEDOM
Even though it is Democracy By Deception, both the Palestinians (Hamas), and Iran are telling the world they have democratically elected governments--and the sad part is, much of the world is buying it, especially parts of Europe. The foundations of democracy are based on the teachings of Jesus, so for them to claim they are living in democratic societies, perverts the Word of the God of Abraham. This twisted form of democracy is one of radical Islam's latest weapons of deception. Massive immigration by Muslims to democratic countries (Europe again) may also be seen as Islamic clerics (who use free speech to preach jihad) use democracy as a weapon. When His disciples asked, "what will be the sign of Your coming, and the end of the age?", Jesus replied (saying first), "See to it that no one misleads you."
DEMOCRACY By DECEPTION
Besides being a terrorist organization, Hamas is one of the the Arab world's largest charities, but they use the opportunities gained in helping people to spread hatred beyond what we as Christians can imagine. All in the name of a god who is not the God of Abraham--a false god. When asked what would be the signs of His return, Jesus' first reply was, "See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in my name saying 'I am the Christ' and will mislead many." (Matt. 24: 4 & 5.). To the Palestinian people, electing Hamas to run their government was suicide by democracy.
Bible prophecy tells us that in the end, God and His nation Israel, will prevail.
An Oxymoron! While thinking up this idea, I called a Christian friend who is from (and still lives in) a Muslim country. My friend laughed at the thought of Islamic comedy and said they (the Muslim government) censors movies (even kissing) to the extent that one loses the story line. Can you imagine a world with no sense of humor? That's Islam when taken literally (as we do the Bible) from the Koran.
THE UPWARD CALL
Caricatures of my good friend and sister in the Lord, Jan, and myself on Mt. Haleakala on the island of Maui, Hawaii! The upward call of the Cross is for all of us--reach ahead for the Prize, Christ Jesus. He has forgiven our pasts, as we must forgive everyone who has ever offended us. When we do so, we'll have no need to ever look back. Thank You Jesus!!!
Keep Jesus in Christmas--it's all about Him!!!
SIX MILLION MORE
What I find interesting here is the fact that in order to nuke Israel off of the map, Iran would end up taking out the Palestinians too. A worthy (but extremely hypercritical) sacrifice to rid the world of a Jewish Nation? Could be, and much like the rest of the craziness Jesus Prophesied (Matt.24 & Luke 21) of these "end times" we are now witnessing. Are you ready to meet Jesus today? I ask because according to Biblical prophecy (all has turned out to be true so far), the rapture of the church--Jesus coming in the sky to collect His church before the great tribulation, could happen today. Are you ready? If not, ask Jesus--He'll show you the way, just ask.
"SEE THAT NO ONE MISLEADS YOU"
Black Diaper Babies, the millions and millions and millions of innocent children murdered because someone thought they were nothing but a blob of protoplasm--even though undeniable evidence proves that unborn babies have the same senses as babies who were given the chance to live. Americas Greatest Shame! How can we expect God to bless America unless something is done NOW to reverse Roe vs. Wade. Please pray that the new Supreme Court will be led by the God that founded it!
I got the idea for this cartoon after reading commentary by Kade Hawkins, in her excellent Prophecy Newsletter, PROPHECY NEWS WATCH UPDATE, which is e-mailed weekly. Besides Hal Lindsey's website, I recommend Kade's newsletter to everyone interested in "end times" prophecy and how it relates to the current world news events we are now witnessing. If you are interested in receiving it too, go to: www.prophecynewswatch.com/ In Jesus, John
1949 Armistice Lines
Recently President Bush announced that American policy--the so called, "Roadmap To Peace", must include Israel withdrawing to the original 1949 Armistice Lines. That would mean Israel would have to give up all the land it won every time she was attacked by her Arab neighbors. And Israel would also have to give East Jerusalem to the Palestinians, which would include the Wailing Wall and the Temple Mount, something she would never do. So the stage is set for the Antichrist to come out of Europe--as prophesied, and broker a peace deal that will be acceptable for Israel and the Palestinians. As most evangelical Christians believe, we in Hal Lindsey's ministry are also confident that the rapture of the church (the coming of Jesus in the clouds to gather His children, and spare them of the great tribulation which will follow that peace deal) will happen first. That means the rapture could happen today! Don't be left behind--only those who know Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be taken. Are you ready to meet Jesus?
STUPID DESIGN---OPPOSITE OF INTELLIGENT DESIGN
No comment on this one--I try answering all of my e-mail but sometimes it takes a lot of time--and I don't have enough time for a Creation vs. Evolution debate with some of those who don't believe all of God's word.
PROPHECY MADE SURE
So much Biblical prophecy has already come to pass, that it would be illogical for one to conclude that the rest of the prophecies as given in Daniel, Ezekiel, Zechariah--and by Jesus Himself, would not also be true. Jesus said it is our generation--the generation that sees Israel reborn as a nation (as happened in 1948), that would witness the rest of the prophecies leading up to His return, as He predicted in the book of Matthew, chapter 24. All prophecy leading up to the rapture of the church has been fulfilled, so it is entirely possible for Jesus to appear in the clouds (not His return) to gather His church before the great tribulation (one such as the world has never seen), today. Are you ready? If not, you will be left behind. Time is running short, so if you still haven't asked Jesus into your heart, today would be a good time to make that decision. Don't be left behind!
Doesn't Bush Get It?
Since 1948, we have been witnessing events that were prophesied in the Scriptures over 2,000 years ago. Events that are unfolding exactly as prophesied, to the minute details--but Bush Doesn't Get It. One would think with all the intelligence and information which is fed to him--and the fact that he is a Christian, that President Bush would have a better understanding of what is going on in the Middle East. Especially with Israel.
The reason I'm using a cartoon from my archives is because I have been working (lots of prayer too) steady since last Friday to re-write and update my testimony, since God has so graciously healed my body again. I now have it posted, and you may read it even though it still needs some editing. I do not claim to be a writier--but if you are, and you are interested in helping by doing a final edit, your assistance would be greatly appreciated! If you would like to help--or if you know of someone who would, please write to me by clicking on the "Comments" link on my Home Page. Thank you kindly, in Jesus, John
As the war on terror continues, America continues to give money to states that (in one way or another) sposnor terrorisn. How can we ever expect to win???
Independence can only be found through the Living Word of God!!!
PAID WITH A PRICE Jesus paid the price of our salvation, forgiveness of our sins and the healing of both our bodies and our spirits, when He was crucified on the cross, for "By His Stripes, we are healed". First Peter, Chapter 2, Verse 24. As proof that we are healed by the Blood of Jesus, please read the testimony below. The first part was written around April first--about two months ago. Thank you, in His Glorious name, John Rule
If you were to die today, do you know what would happen to your spirit--do you know where would it go? Those who have invited Jesus to come and live in their hearts are guaranteed they will spend eternity in paradise with Him. Paul wrote in 2nd Corinthians 5:8, that when we are absent from our bodies, we are at home with the Lord. Eternal Security. If you're not sure about your eternal security--where your spirit would go when you die, then all you need to do is say a simple short prayer like this: Jesus, I'm tired of driving--I keep getting into wrecks, so from now on, I'm going to slide over to the passenger side and let you drive. And please forgive me for all of my sins--for all the times that I knew I was doing something wrong, and went ahead and did it anyway. And from now on, please help me to live as You want me to. If you just said that prayer and really meant it, you will spend the rest of you life with the Spirit of Jesus living in you, and you will have Eternal Security too.
In This Generation
I don't believe this cartoon needs an explanation. Everybody has gone fishing this week, so I'm using a cartoon from last year. Mike, our webmaster, is fishing in Canada, and Jack Kinsella, Hal's Senior Editor is out in the deep blue Atlantic fishing for tuna. I've been pulling in some nice trout from the creek that runs thru my front yard. So I'll see you next week with a new cartoon. Thank you, in Jesus, John
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
The man illustrated in this cartoon, Ed, is a Native American from the Ojibwe (pronounced Ojibway) Tribe of Northern Minnesota (Ed is a Native Dancer), and was bound by the chains of the social illnesses that plague many Native Americans--mostly alcohol & drugs. Until recently, Ed's life was controlled by them, but a few months ago he was set free by the Spirit of Jesus.
UPDATE, April, 2005: NOTE FROM JOHN: During the past few months my pain level has steady been increasing, to the point where much of the time--in spite of narcotic pain medicines, I am overwhelmed with pain. Two weeks ago I had an appointment with my neurosurgeon who, after examining me, ordered a complete set of x-rays of my neck and lower back. After seeing the x-rays, he called and said I need to have spinal surgery again--it would be my eighth. So your prayers would be appreciated--that God would heal me again, and it would be a great testimony to His Power, His Greatness and His Love for us. A date for the surgery has not been set, but I'm betting the Lord will heal me before I get another call from my neurosurgeon. Jesus said in Mark 11:24, that if we believe He is going to answer our prayers, He will. I believe 100% that the Spirit of Jesus will heal me again. Along with everything else, the costs of maintaining this website keep going up and they are now over $300 a month. Since I'm disabled and my only income is Social Security Disability (SSDI), I can't afford to pay for the site myself, so it is completely dependent on the sales of T-shirts, Mugs, Cartoons and your gifts. As many of you know, I have been praying, asking the Lord if He wants me to continue with this cartoon ministry or serve Him in a different way. At this time I feel He wants me to continue on for at least another month. Your prayers are really appreciated. Thank you kindly, in Jesus, John
Palestinian Peace--The cartoon speaks of the hypocrisy of peace between the Palestinian Authority and Israel. Mahmoud Abbas cries peace when the Palestinians really want to push Israel into the Mediterranean Sea.
The Joker, Kofi Annan, is the wild man, and the United Nations is a house of cards that John Bolton, the nominee for US Ambassador to the United Nations, would likely blow down if confirmed. One of the reasons why there is such opposition to his nomination by Liberals who turned their heads to the Oil For Food scam. The same people who want to turn over America's security to the Un. Oooops, I mean UN. In the past, Bolton has been outspoken on UN issues--about time!
