The Pope Calls Out Satan - It's High Noon, 3 O'Clock's Coming

I'm not catholic except in the universal church sense.  As a man said the other day in another context, "I'm as catholic as Jesus is".
But, I think when a person or a Pope says something of significance it needs to be repeated.  Here is a partial text of what will happen during the Stations of the Cross at St. Peters today, Good Friday:

THE Pope will deliver a blistering attack on the “satanic” mores of modern society today, warning against an “inane apologia of evil” that is in danger of destroying humanity.

In a series of Good Friday meditations that he will lead in Rome, the Pope will say that society is in the grip of a kind of “anti-Genesis” described as “a diabolical pride aimed at eliminating the family”. He will pray for society to be cleansed of the “filth” that surrounds it and be restored to purity, freed from “decadent narcissism”.

The meditations is striking in its contrast to the contemporary fashion for feel-good religion.

At the Third Station of the Cross, where Jesus falls for the first time, Archbishop Comastri has written: “Lord, we have lost our sense of sin. Today a slick campaign of propaganda is spreading an inane apologia of evil, a senseless cult of Satan, a mindless desire for transgression, a dishonest and frivolous freedom, exalting impulsiveness, immorality and selfishness as if they were new heights of sophistication.”

At the Fourth Station, where Jesus is helped by Simon the Cyrene to carry the cross, Pope Benedict and his followers will pray: “Lord Jesus, our affluence is making us less human, our entertainment has become a drug, a source of alienation, and our society’s incessant, tedious message is an invitation to die of selfishness.”

One of the strongest meditations warns against the attack on the family. “Today we seem to be witnessing a kind of anti-Genesis, a counter-plan, a diabolical pride aimed at eliminating the family.”

There is a moving meditation for the Eighth Station, where Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem, describing the “River of tears shed by mothers, mothers of the crucified, mothers of murderers, mothers of drug addicts, mothers of terrorists, mothers of rapists, mothers of psychopaths, but mothers all the same”.

The Pope will also confront the question of evil in the world in a meditation that asks: “Where is Jesus in the agony of our own time, in the division of our world into belts of prosperity and belts of poverty . . . in one room they are concerned about obesity, in the other, they are begging for charity?”

Perhaps we are too accepting of the evil that surrounds us.  Perhaps we shouldn't be.  Isaiah said there will come a time when men will no longer call sin sin.  Are we there now?

Yesterday I had to go deliver some plants to Walkerton Indiana.  While bumbling down I-80 at 70 miles an hour (or be run over) with 4 lanes of traffic on both sides of the interstate I encountered a sight that made me laugh out loud.
A huge motorhome, (you know the kind, size of a city bus, costs a hundred grand) was cruising with the rest of the traffic and on it's trailer hitch was a small car trailer with a small car in tow.  That's not terribly unusual. 
I know from asking that one of those big 2 person busses will get 5 miles to the gallon.  This was a gasser not a diesel. 
So what made me laugh?  The little car in tow was a Prius.  A hybrid car.  And the license plate was one of those vanity plates.  HYBRED. I know they spelled it wrong.  They can. It's their car.
I have this vision of a retired couple with lots of money who are driving this behemoth to every state in the union, see America first kind of thing, filling the hundred gallon tank every 500 miles to the tune of $270 per shot and then when they pull into the KOA drive off to see the sights in their little Prius with the license plate that screams, "We're saving the planet and saving gas, we drive a hybrid".
Never mind that the contradiction is mindboggling.  I'll give them a break.  Maybe they like the Prius.  I mean it's maintainance cost will be much higher in the long run as batteries need replacing and will make operating the motor home look cheap and the hybrid cost a third more to buy than a simple compact car.  They can afford it and if having a cape makes them think they are superman, have at it. 
It just made me laugh.

Bullys on the Left Suppress the Truth about Climate Change

I love being ahead of the curve on things but I’m angry with the elite leftists who impose their views on us expecting us to accept them without complaint or question.  I was taught to question everything.  That skill is now lost in our society.  We are a gullible people. 


The lack of good science education and willingness by people who believe liberal socialist dogma to be duped makes appealing the idea that we need to change society to stop something we didn’t start.  Climate change is happening.  Man didn’t cause it and doesn’t accelerate or slow it by his actions.  Full Stop!


Al Gore is the high priest of this conspiracy.  Earth in the Balance, his book from a decade ago was a manifesto for global economic control dominance by the left wing elite.  It’s all-wrong.


Read this from today's Wall Street Journal.   A few disturbing excerpts are below:


There is a more sinister side to this feeding frenzy. Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.


So how is it that we don't have more scientists speaking up about this junk science? It's my belief that many scientists have been cowed not merely by money but by fear.


This has much to do with misunderstanding the science of climate, plus a willingness to debase climate science into a triangle of alarmism. Ambiguous scientific statements about climate are hyped by those with a vested interest in alarm, thus raising the political stakes for policy makers who provide funds for more science research to feed more alarm to increase the political stakes.


Sen. Al Gore. In 1992, he ran two congressional hearings during which he tried to bully dissenting scientists, including myself, into changing our views and supporting his climate alarmism. Nor did the scientific community complain when Mr. Gore, as vice president, tried to enlist Ted Koppel in a witch hunt to discredit anti-alarmist scientists--a request that Mr. Koppel deemed publicly inappropriate.


And then there are the peculiar standards in place in scientific journals for articles submitted by those who raise questions about accepted climate wisdom. At Science and Nature, such papers are commonly refused without review as being without interest.


Alarm rather than genuine scientific curiosity, it appears, is essential to maintaining funding. And only the most senior scientists today can stand up against this alarmist gale, and defy the iron triangle of climate scientists, advocates and policymakers.

M. Lindzen is Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT.


The left wants to take over the world, starting with your freedom and your pocketbook.  Let's stop them!

Gnostic Confusion and Deception of Judas Papers and DaVinci Code

The Apostle Paul was very concerned about people being prey to another gospel.  Something wrapped up in religious facade but having the look and feel of truth even though it is a lie. In fact he was quite clear.  He said that even if an angel came down from heaven and proclaimed ANY other gospel than Jesus Christ, him crucified and risen again that we were to identify it, reject it and call down a curse on it and a curse on those who bring it.  I didn't make this up, here's what he said.   I think it's pretty darn clear.
Galatians Chapter one starting with verse 6.
I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different gospel; 1:7and there isn't another gospel. Only there are some who trouble you, and want to pervert the Gospel of Christ. 1:8But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any gospel other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed. 1:9As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any gospel other than that which you received, let him be cursed. 1:10For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? For if I were still pleasing men, I wouldn't be a servant of Christ. 1:11But I make known to you, brothers, concerning the Gospel which was preached by me, that it is not according to man. 1:12For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ.
I know it's controversial.  I know that many of my evangelical readers might be uncomfortable with this idea but I believe that a Biblical curse is in order.  Remember the Book of  Daniel abomination of a few months ago on TV.  The uproar?  It died.  It was cursed.
So what do I want you to curse?  The lie of the enemy regarding two of the recent "other gospels" which raised their demonic heads.
The Judas Papers (I refuse to call it a gospel)
The DaVinci Code Movie
Both of these are Gnostic lies.  If you are not aware of who the Gnostics were and still are in these forms (an earlier iteration was the "gospel" of Mary Magdalene), you can read all about them here.  Or, read this very excellent Catholic explanation.  Fairly lengthy but accurate.  These are people who deny Jesus blood.  That is a risky dangerous place to be.
Or just google the word Gnostic and you will find lots of info.  The fact is it will confuse and deceive you if you entertain it.  So, for your own sake, don't.  I don't want you to be ignorant.
I am constantly puzzled why the world will reject the concept of Jesus coming to earth fully God incarnated as a man living perfection in his life, demonstrating who God is, and dying a cruel death, beating death, hell and the tomb and ascending back to heaven.  I mean that's what Easter is all about. 
Yet these same well meaning people will read and digest the deception delivered as fiction as if it's real.  Or believe some apostate professor from a college in North Carolina without doubt.  I have a friend of an online friend who is in one of Bart Ehrman's class right now.  I would RUN. 
One is about entertainment.  The other is about your eternal soul.
Therefore, I am calling on my Christian Friends.  Call down a curse on these two abominations in Jesus Name.  I can't instruct you on the curse or it's method, but this might helpJesus cursed a fig tree and it died.  There are examples of Curses against evil all thru the Word of God, and in Deuteronomy 28 a whole chapter on blessing and cursing resulting from obedience or disobedience.  Blessing and Cursing are in the power of the tongue, be careful that the thing you curse and pronounce doom upon is not people but exploits of the enemy.  My first recommendation would be to speak into the air about these abominations.  Pronounce doom and failure on them. The second would be to bind them using the power of God given to believers when Jesus said, "Whatever (not whoever) you bind on earth will be bound in heaven".
Will this work?  I believe God.  And I believe that we are here to be the restrainers until God decides to take us out.  Restrainers against the evil of the enemy.  Against the spirit of antichrist2Thess.2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He Who now restrains, will restrain, until He be taken out of the way.
We don't war against flesh and blood.  But some of the principalities and powers behind these things are pretty blatant.   I think the devil is more bold in these days.  He looks exactly like an angel of Light (revelation).
So, call down whatever curse on these schemes of the devil you can believe God for.  Have no fear, God is not mocked.  Paul, if he were here today, would cheer you on.  Onward Christian Soldiers.

Oil at $100 or $45? Yes



That’s what makes the market. 


T. Boone Pickens, Texas Oil Billionaire makes his money by being right about the price of Oil.  He is right this time too.  He says with political unrest in the oil producing countries of Iran and Nigeria Oil is going to go to $100 per barrel. FEAR.


On the other hand Ben Dell, a respected oil analyst says the price of oil is about to fall to $45.  His whole document is here.


He then says that the price will creep back up to about $60 by 2010.  So relax. 


Gasoline is going to be cheap with a short-term spike for a while yet to come. 


How is all this possible? Fear means if you believe the world is running out of oil and we are going to die then you buy oil futures.  Ride the ride up.  Political unrest only drives your fear further.  You make money on fear.


If on the other hand you believe that the world is awash in crude oil looking for a market and when that bird comes home to roost you are going to see an oil bust, then you look for a way to make a buck by selling the market when it hits $100. Greed.


In this context greed is good.


So, who is right Pickens or Dell?  Both!


Here’s what is about to happen.  Political unrest and instability will cause the world oil markets to peak at over $100.  This will be driven by a couple speculators.  This will last until the world settles down again.  Then reality will set in.  Oil will drop like a rock. It will go to $45 and then over the next 4 years creep back up to $60.  That’s all in today’s dollars.  If we have huge inflation, a devaluation in our currency, (Gold at $1000) then you must think in today’s dollars. 


If you want to become hugely wealthy wait until the oil hits $100 then sell it on the futures options market (a put) and wait as it drops to $45.  Send me some.


PS: For Christians only.   You already knew this. God never does anything unless he tells his prophets first.
