The Hill: “There is renewed energy on Capitol Hill to lift the Defense Department’s ban on transgender troops.

Lawmakers view recent steps by the Pentagon and some of the armed services to expand protections for gay and lesbian troops as an opportunity to do away with the decades-old prohibition on allowing transgender troops to serve openly.

“The president agrees with the sentiment that all Americans who are qualified to serve should be able to serve,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.”

Opinion: No doubt this is part of the president’s plan to totally transform the military. Our enemies must be hysterical.

Time (.com): “Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito explicitly warned religious traditionalists that this decision leaves them vulnerable. Alito warns that Obergefell “will be used to vilify Americans who are unwilling to assent to the new orthodoxy,” and will be used to oppress the faithful “by those who are determined to stamp out every vestige of dissent.”

For one, we have to accept that we really are living in a culturally post-Christian nation. The fundamental norms Christians have long been able to depend on no longer exist. To be frank, the court majority may impose on the rest of the nation a view widely shared by elites, but it is also a view shared by a majority of Americans. There will be no widespread popular resistance to Obergefell. This is the new normal.

For another, LGBT activists and their fellow travelers really will be coming after social conservatives. The Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race. The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status from dissenting religious institutions. The more immediate goal will be the shunning and persecution of dissenters within civil society.”

Opinion: We have been warning about this for three years. A quick look at our search bar will show over 50 posts on the subject and now that it is the law of the land I am having a hard time finding the words to describe the gigantic shift that has moved our nation away from its Christian roots.

To think that it all began when one man evolved.

Our pastor, knowing that a number of his flock were pleased with the Court’s decision called for those who celebrated the decision to be tolerant and accepting of those who still believe as he does that the Bible clearly calls for marriage to be between 1 man and 1 woman.

I heard voices of those who agreed with the decision assure our pastor there would be respect and tolerance on both sides of the issue.

That, I guarantee will not be the case.

Two months ago New York Times op-ed writer Frank Bruni, onetime Times restaurant critic and a gay activist, has warned that “Christians who hold on to “ossified,” biblically-based beliefs regarding sexual morality have no place at America’s table and are deserving of no particular regard.”

Two thousand years ago, the Apostle Peter also warned that followers of Christ would be exiles from society:

“Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.” 2 Peter 2:11-12

Zero Hedge: ““They want to be on the top table in all areas of international trade and this is no different,” Sharps Pixley CEO told Bloomberg earlier this month, tying China’s move to participate in the twice-daily auction that determines London gold prices to Beijing’s efforts to embed the yuan more deeply in international investment and trade.

As a reminder, the auction has its roots in efforts to deter manipulation. Here’s what we said last month:

A long time ago, in a financial galaxy far, far away, a “fringe” blog raised the topic of gold market manipulation during the London AM fix. Several years later (which, incidentally, is about average in terms of the lag time between when something is actually going on and when the mainstream financial media finally figures it out and reports on it), it was revealed that in fact, shenanigans were likely afoot and indeed, regulators are still trying to sort out what happened. The ‘fix’ for the ‘fixed’ gold fix (only in the world of corrupt high finance is such a hilariously absurd passage possible) is supposedly a new system whereby the fixings are derived electronically. 

Opinion: In the fiction chapter of our book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek, we noted that since 2011, China has been buying vast amounts of gold which was being manipulated lower by Central banks and now it is now becoming clear as to why.

Globalist governments and organizations they control via lobbies understand that for a world government to be established the US dollar must be removed as world reserve currency and with it lone superpower status.

But before that happens, in order to avoid a world-wide depression, a temporary alternative to the dollar would need to be established prior to a single currency.

Enter the SDR or Special Depository Receipts. In our post on April 27, 2015 we said this:

The SDR:

  • A basket on currencies (money) defined and maintained by the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
  • SDR is a currency created by the International Monetary Fund used for payments between countries
  • The currencies chosen  are reviewed by IMF every five years, the last review was 2010
  • The SDR interest rate provides the basis for calculating the interest charged to borrowing members. Currently, SDRs include: US dollar, Euro, Pound Sterling and Japanese yen

China’s currency, renminbi, was rejected by the IMF in 2010 due to a lack of global liquidity. Since then China has been boosting gold reserves (with the help of central manipulation) to strengthen the case for inclusion in the SDR basket.

In April  20, 1015, a meeting in Washington hosted by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) to discuss the future relationship, if any, of gold with the Special Drawing Rights (SDR).

The next review of the SDR is October 2015.

If renminbi and gold were to be included in the SDR, the nations whose currencies are in the basket would no longer be able to print money.

Over time the dollar, euro, and yen would necessarily be dropped – leaving a single currency, renminbi, along with gold in the basket.

Under normal conditions the US would simply block the Chinese, but these are not normal times:

  1. Full faith and credit of the dollar is deteriorating
  2. The US debt including unfunded liabilities is anywhere from 120-200 trillion dollars
  3. The number of nations joining the recent Asian Infrastructure International Bank (AIIB) was a huge embarrassment to the Obama administration and further weakened the dollar

The global economic chaos that would come from a crashing US dollar with an illiquid renminbi gold-backed reserve currency would logically lead to the creation of a cashless digital currency.

And a single currency is precisely what a leader of the revived Roman Empire would need in order to control buying and selling, Revelation 13:15-16.

Zero Hedge: “Just a few hours ago Greek PM Tsipras addressed his nation imploring then to “remain calm” and reassuring them that their “deposits were safe.”

It appears the Greeks did not believe him. Many were wondering where the Greek bank lines were for the past several months. Turns out the local depositors were merely waiting until just after the last minute to withdraw their funds… horde gas… and stack food. Greece, it appears is Venezuela – the new socialist paradise.

Tsipras implored: “Keep Calm….”

Opinion: The debt-to-GDP ratio is a measure of a country’s debt compared to its economic output. When a country’s economy slows, government will frequently borrow to meet its obligations or to stimulate its economy.

Take a look at what is happening in Greece today, it is but a preview of coming attractions.

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his  hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny (1 day’s pay), and three measures of barley for a penny (1 day’s food); and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine?” (the rich barely feel the pain) Revelation 6:5-6

Prophecy2

Today’s Post is from Joel Rosenberg’s recent study of Bible prophecy and its intention and purpose.

Joel C. Rosenberg (www.joelrosenberg.com) is a New York Times best-selling and award-winning author of 10 novels and five non-fiction books, with more than 3 million copies sold.

He is also the Founder and Chairman of The Joshua Fund (www.joshuafund.com), a non-profit educational and charitable organization he and his wife launched in 2006 to mobilize Christians to “bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus, according to Genesis 12:1-3.”

He and his wife have four sons. They made Aliyah in 2014 and now live in Israel and the United States.

1871065644-640x480Breitbart: “Welcome to the exciting new world of the slippery slope. With the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling this Friday legalizing same sex marriage in all 50 states, social liberalism has achieved one of its central goals. A right seemingly unthinkable two decades ago has now been broadly applied to a whole new class of citizens.

The question presents itself: Where does the next advance come? The answer is going to make nearly everyone uncomfortable: Now that we’ve defined that love and devotion and family isn’t driven by gender alone, why should it be limited to just two individuals? The most natural advance next for marriage lies in legalized polygamy—yet many of the same people who pressed for marriage equality for gay couples oppose it.”

Opinion: Once marriage became a 14th amendment issue of equal protection under the law, the Biblical definition of marriage becomes completely irrelevant.

Chief Justice Roberts “It is striking how much of the majority’s reasoning would apply with equal force to the claim of a fundamental right to plural marriage” and it will be equally striking when polygamy, or any combination of pairing no matter how perverse, demands that same equal protection.

It’s the law as determined by 9 unelected judges, period.

My niece tells a story about her grandmother (my mother) that is relevant to what we Christians can do now: After a serious and dangerous brain operation on her 10 year old  son my very distraught niece did not get the news she had hoped for.

Feeling devastated and alone my niece went back to her son’s hospital room to grieve the diagnosis. When she walked into the room there was her grandmother standing in her stockings on a Bible.

My startled niece looked in amazement as mom said  “We stand on the word of God”. My niece has been a Christian ever since.

No matter what comes that is the right place to stand.

Breitbart: “On June 26 President Obama eulogized Rev. Clementa Pinckney praising the frenzied efforts to banish the Confederate flag from public sight, saying, “By taking down that flag we express God’s grace.”

Obama also used the eulogy to call for more gun control laws and to praise Governor Nikki Haley (R) for taking her position on the Confederate flag and calling for its removal from the South Carolina Capitol grounds in the wake of the Charleston attack.”

Opinion: Spoken by the same man who just a few years ago said he could not support same-sex marriage because God is in the mix, and so overcome with emotion at a women’s pro-choice rally that he actually said  – God bless Planned Parenthood.
