ObomaCare

https://newsthatanchor.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/the-eagle-speaks.jpgThe Eagle has been speaking  loudly this year.  In June, the Supreme Court passed its ruling on gay marriage by its 5-4ruling confirming gays in their lifestyle  and opening “the closet” for others.

ObamaCare was launched to the glee of the Democrats and the compromise of the Republicans.  This blog has presented the fact that America has shifted from a Judeo-Christian country to a homosexual culture that appears to have the momentum for many years to come.

But, ObamaCare, or The Affordable Care Act, which was supposed to launch the 1st of November, 2013 has not been successful because of glitches in the computer programming.  Dear reader, what do you think?

Upon considering the actions of the “eagle” this year, and being a student of the Word of God, I am inclined to see this computer flop as a judgment of God.

First of all, God’s Word is  banned from schools and public places and the current trend is to band it everywhere else.  The military is especially a fruitful field to practice its abolishment and forbid mentioning the Bible, even by chaplains.

Next, is the fact that God has a healthcare program in His Word that works much more effectively and inexpensively even before ObamaCare was enacted, God’s program was outlawed and demonized by the health authorities in the nation.  Were Jesus to be here today and practice God’s plan of health, He would be arrested and put in jail.  Nevertheless, we have ObamaCare.  What is it likened to?

I liken it to Dagon, the fish god of the Philistines.  Please read the fifth chapter of 1 Samuel for my premise.  The Philistines had taken the ark of God and set it in the temple of dagon and God’s judgment came upon the idol and it was beheaded.

ObamaCare is a substitution of the right of God (His ark contained His law) to rule His people and the government has overruled Him for their own beliefs.  Therefore, this act is an act against God and they are not receiving the warning.

More judgments will surely come as this action of our government’s leaders continue to persist.

GAY AMERICA

Wednesday, June 26, 2013, The Supreme Court of America ruled 5-4 in favor of homosexual marriage.  This was an unprecedented move by the court which overruled DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) which was passed by Congress and signed by Pres. Bill Clinton.
What some of the problems are related to this decision cannot be calculated at the present time but, there certainly will be countless lawsuits.
America has been tagged as a “Christian Nation” for years and now it appears that the Christians are on the defensive.  What will ultimately be their fate?  How far will the federal government go to institute this radical change?  Will Christians have to accept homosexuals into their fellowship?  Will they have to expunge the Bible verses that forbids this type of relationship?  Will Christian pastors have to accept homosexual marriages, etc.?
These and countless other questions will have to be addressed.  Many Christians are concerned that the days of Sodom and Gomorrah have come upon the nation and the wrath of God is sure to follow.
Issues over this decision will have to be faced in the schools, business, churches and every aspect of society.  There will be penalities and imprisonment.  The Bible will be the banned book of the nation from the highest office to the local government.
With the decision of the Supreme Court and the President of the United States supporting it, the media has come completely out of the closet.  The onesided biasness has reverberated to its height.  Anyone who disfavors the decision, such as Supreme Court Justice Scilea, will be attacked from every angle.
Truly, the appearance of the Supreme Court’s act has converted America to the state of Sodom.
There once was a decision made in the legislature of France years ago that had a similiar tone.  Following is a portion of that history.
“The atheistical power that ruled in France during the Revolution and the Reign of Terror, did wage such a war against God and His holy word as the world had never witnessed. The worship of the Deity was abolished by the National Assembly. Bibles were collected and publicly burned with every possible manifestation of scorn. The law of God was trampled underfoot. The institutions of the Bible were abolished. The weekly rest day was set aside, and in its stead every tenth day was devoted to reveling and blasphemy. Baptism and the Communion were prohibited. And announcements posted conspicuously over the burial places declared death to be an eternal sleep.  {GC 273.2}
The fear of God was said to be so far from the beginning of wisdom that it was the beginning of folly. All religious worship was prohibited, except that of liberty and the country. The “constitutional bishop of Paris was brought forward to play the principal part in the most impudent and scandalous farce ever acted in the face of a national representation. . . . He was brought forward in full procession, to declare to the Convention that the religion which he had taught so many years was, in every respect, a piece of priestcraft, which had no foundation either in history or sacred truth. He disowned, in solemn and explicit terms, the existence of the Deity to whose worship he had been consecrated, and devoted himself in future to the homage of liberty, equality, virtue, and morality. He then laid on the table his episcopal decorations, and received a fraternal embrace from the president of the Convention. Several apostate priests followed the example of this prelate.”–Scott, vol. 1, ch. 17.
“And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.” Infidel France had silenced the reproving voice of God’s two witnesses. The word of truth lay dead in her streets, and those who hated the restrictions and requirements of God’s law were jubilant. Men publicly defied the King of heaven. Like the sinners of old, they cried: “How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the Most High?” Psalm 73:11.
With blasphemous boldness almost beyond belief, one of the priests of the new order said: “God, if You exist, avenge Your injured name. I bid You defiance! You remain silent; You dare not launch Your thunders. Who after this will believe in Your existence?”–Lacretelle, History, vol. 11, p. 309; in Sir Archibald Alison, History of Europe, vol. 1, ch. 10. What an echo is this of the Pharaoh’s demand: “Who is Jehovah, that I should obey His voice?” “I know not Jehovah!”
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” Psalm 14:1. And the Lord declares concerning the perverters of the truth: “Their folly shall be manifest unto all.” 2 Timothy 3:9. After France had renounced the worship of the living God, “the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity,” it was only a little time till she descended to degrading idolatry, by the worship of the Goddess of Reason, in the person of a profligate woman. And this in the representative assembly of the nation, and by its highest civil and legislative authorities! Says the historian: “One of the ceremonies of this insane time stands unrivaled for absurdity combined with impiety. The doors of the Convention were thrown open to a band of musicians, preceded by whom, the members of the municipal body entered in solemn procession, singing a hymn in praise of liberty, and escorting, as the object of their future worship, a veiled female, whom they termed the Goddess of Reason. Being brought within the bar, she was unveiled with great form, and placed on the right of the president, when she was generally recognized as a dancing girl of the opera. . . . To this person, as the fittest representative of that reason whom they worshiped, the National Convention of France rendered public homage.
“This impious and ridiculous mummery had a certain fashion; and the installation of the Goddess of Reason was renewed and imitated throughout the nation, in such places where the inhabitants desired to show themselves equal to all the heights of the Revolution.”–Scott, vol. 1, ch. 17.
Said the orator who introduced the worship of Reason: “Legislators! Fanaticism has given way to reason. Its bleared eyes could not endure the brilliancy of the light. This day an immense concourse has assembled beneath those gothic vaults, which, for the first time, re-echoed the truth. There the French have celebrated the only true worship,–that of Liberty, that of Reason. There we have formed wishes for the prosperity of the arms of the Republic. There we have abandoned inanimate idols for Reason, for that animated image, the masterpiece of nature.”–M. A. Thiers, History of the French Revolution, vol. 2, pp. 370, 371.
When the goddess was brought into the Convention, the orator took her by the hand, and turning to the assembly said: “Mortals, cease to tremble before the powerless thunders of a God whom your fears have created. Henceforth acknowledge no divinity but Reason. I offer you its noblest and purest image; if you must have idols, sacrifice only to such as this. . . . Fall before the august Senate of Freedom, oh! Veil of Reason!”
“The goddess, after being embraced by the president, was mounted on a magnificent car, and conducted, amid an immense crowd, to the cathedral of Notre Dame, to take the place of the Deity. There she was elevated on the high altar, and received the adoration of all present.”–Alison, vol. 1, ch. 10.
This was followed, not long afterward, by the public burning of the Bible. On one occasion “the Popular Society of the Museum” entered the hall of the municipality, exclaiming, “Vive la Raison!” and carrying on the top of a pole the half-burned remains of several books, among others breviaries, missals, and the Old and New Testaments, which “expiated in a great fire,” said the president, “all the fooleries which they have made the human race commit.”–Journal of Paris, 1793, No. 318. Quoted in Buchez-Roux, Collection of Parliamentary History, vol. 30, pp. 200, 201.”
This was taken from the book “THE GREAT CONTROVERSY, pages 273-276.  If you would like a copy of this great book, send a minimum  donation of $10 to cover all expenses to the address on the back of this booklet.
Indeed, no one knows to what lengths this decision will take the nation, but, one thing we can be sure of if history is a mirror of our future, God will not sit back and allow all that is going contrary to His Word to continue.  In the past, He has always shown Himself to be in control of nations as well as individuals and He calls for everyone who loves Him to evence their loyalty by humbly obeying Him in spite of the circumstances that surround them.  He has always had a people who loved Him supremely and when the laws of the land conflict with His laws, they choose Him unanimously.  Will the Supreme Court decision change your decision to obey God?

HISTORY OF IRS

The-Eagle-Speaks

 

Brief History of IRS

Origin
The roots of IRS go back to the Civil War when President Lincoln and Congress, in 1862, created the position of commissioner of Internal Revenue and enacted an income tax to pay war expenses. The income tax was repealed 10 years later. Congress revived the income tax in 1894, but the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional the following year.

16th Amendment
In 1913, Wyoming ratified the 16th Amendment, providing the three-quarter majority of states necessary to amend the Constitution. The 16th Amendment gave Congress the authority to enact an income tax. That same year, the first Form 1040 appeared after Congress levied a 1 percent tax on net personal incomes above $3,000 with a 6 percent surtax on incomes of more than $500,000.

In 1918, during World War I, the top rate of the income tax rose to 77 percent to help finance the war effort. It dropped sharply in the post-war years, down to 24 percent in 1929, and rose again during the Depression. During World War II, Congress introduced payroll withholding and quarterly tax payments.

1913 Form 1040 (PDF 126KB, 4 pages, including instructions)

A New Name
In the 50s, the agency was reorganized to replace a patronage system with career, professional employees. The Bureau of Internal Revenue name was changed to the Internal Revenue Service. Only the IRS commissioner and chief counsel are selected by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

IRS SCANDAL, Benghazi and Suppression of the Press

The-Eagle-Speaks

The eagle is speaking with clipped talons.  Three scandals are coming out of the current administration of Barack Obama.  Where they will end we do not know but, we do know that America’s wardrobe will change after all that’s said and done.

It appears as though our leadership has not grown up.  When children are caught doing something they should not have done, they usually all say, “I didn’t do it!”  Currently our leaders are all saying this from the President and Attorney General to all involved.  No one is taking the blame for any mistakes or sins that have been committed.  Children lie to escape the punishment of the authority(s) and may escape for the moment, but eventually all will come to light.

The Benghazi episode appears to have injured the chances of Hillary Clinton in her bid for the White House.  But, who knows and the News Media networks are generally on the side of “liberals.”  Now, they have turned on the administration because they have come under the attack of the administration.

Before these scandals, the news was gay marriage, pro-abortion rights, the economy, etc.  Now, we are watching to see how the fires burn out for the administration.

We must not forget that America is prophesied of in Revelation 13:11-18.  Thought its claws are clipped, she still has its power in other ways.  Though the IRS is under scrutiny, it is still the IRS.  Thought the Presidency is scarred, it is still the Presidency and so on for Congress and the other agencies of the government.  Laws are going to be passed and acted upon and people will feel the strain of life trying to adjust to “new norms.”

The bright side of it all is the fact that God is judging the actions  of men and nations and He will have the final word.  Christians especially, are to cheer up because they know that the end of all things is at hand.  God is working out the counsels of His will.  When the climax comes, it will be seen who has been in charge.  All will have to give an account for the things they have done.  There will be no children saying, “I didn’t do it!”

SAME SEX MARRIAGE

https://i2.wp.com/1.bp.blogspot.com/_JRkgseRT7NY/TBvNk4PMNUI/AAAAAAAACLU/I-e5xKjHJQc/s1600/Pope+Benedict+XVI+marrying+gay+men+You_May_Now_Kiss_The_Groom+same+sex+marriage+catholic+church+vatican+by+Kevin+Sharkey.JPG

Wednesday, March 27, 2013, The Supreme Court began taking up the controversial issue of the ligitimacy of same sex marriage.  In California, the people voted down the amendment to legalize same sex marriage under Proposition 8 but a federal judge, who himself, is gay, ruled that the peoples vote was unconstitutional.  Thus, the issue is now in the hands of the Federal Supreme Court to decide.
This article is written to show that the actions of the Federal government is in line with the prophecies of Revelation 13:11-18.  If the reader will take the time to read the prophecy, he will see the United States in action and what it will ultimately do.  It has lamblike features but speaks as a dragon.  The lamb is a symbol of Christ and the dragon is a symbol of Satan.  Lamblike is to be Christlike and to be like Satan is everything else except Christian.
In chapter 12 of Revelation, the dragon is spoken of as Satan and his kingdoms which are all pagans.  The understanding of the symbols is the key to understanding what God is saying is going to happen.
A candid or careful look at Rev.13:15 needs to be done to follow the unfolding of the events foretold.  In recent blogs on “THE EAGLE SPEAKS,” I have shown how the government speaks.  It speaks by its laws.  There are 3 branches of the federal government, the executive, the legislative and the judiciary. The executive includes the president, vice president and the president’s cabinet.  The legislative includes the Congress and the Senate and the judiciary includes all the appointed judges of the Supreme Court.  When a law is passed, the government speaks through these three branches and is enforced nationwide.
Therefore, it is critical to understand the trend of these three current branches of government.  Where are they pointing to?  What is the direction they have been and are leaning?  How successful have they been in changing the established laws concerning marriage and same sex partners?  What will be the
“new norm” in America and what will happen to the opposition?
The Supreme Court will make a final decision on this issue in June.  It will be interesting to see what the outcome will be.
Webster’s dictionary defines married as thus.  a.  being husband and wife.  b.  having a husband or wife.  Marry.  a. to join a man and a woman as husband and wife. b. to take as one’s husband or wife.
God’s Word is His will and it speaks loud and clear with certainty.  Let’s hear what it says.
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  Gen. 2:21-24.
This is the way it was until the flood.  God’s will had not changed.  What was it like during the flood?
And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.  Gen. 7:7.
What did Jesus say about marriage in His day?
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made [them] at the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.  Mat. 19:4-6.
Since Adam and Eve until this day, civilization has been kept going by the union of men and women.  Marriage is God ordained and God protected.  To marry any other way does not meet the will of God or have His protection.  Marriage is of Christian origin and when it is not between a man and a woman, it is of pagan or Satanic origin.  Both marriages cannot be right.  It is one or the other.

Currently today, the news media, all across the board, are playing into the vile channel of polluting this sacred institution of God by the plea of  ‘right to marry.’  Instead of reporting the news, they are endeavoring to interpret it.  This is done with every issue before us.  It seems as if they are in the fight for the left and are channeling their energies and resources in this direction.  They have assumed an anti-God posture which must be addressed also.  As Revelation 19:20 says will happen, those that support an anti-God position will find themselves also in the lake of fire.
Back in Israel’s wandering in the wilderness, God gave them clear specific instructions not to have sex with the same sex or with animals because it was what pagans were doing.  See Leviticus chapter 18.  A severe warning was given to the Hebrews or the same punishment that was inflicted upon the pagans would come upon them.
Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit [any] of these abominations; [neither] any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which [were] before you, and the land is defiled;)
That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that [were] before you.
For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit [them] shall be cut off from among their people.
Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that [ye] commit not [any one] of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I [am] the LORD your God.  Lev. 18:24-30.
Has God punished men and women before for practicing same sex abominations?  Yes?  Read all of Genesis 18 and 19.
Is it prophesied that God would punish the same crimes again?  Yes.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.  Luke 17:28-30.
Can we expect things to get better?  No.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.  2 Tim. 3:13.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].  Eph. 6:12.
We cannot go higher that the three branches aforementioned.  Satan is working overtime and doubletime to take to hell as many as he can and he can do it most effectively by using leaders who are not followers of Jesus Christ and the apostles and prophets.
Watch closely the events surrounding this nation in the light of Revelation 13:11-18 and don’t be surprised where all of this is headed.  Christians may be in for a long night which is just before them.  Daniel 12:1.
This government has taken up the challenge of Jesus in Matthew 19:6, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”  Satan took to challenge the Word of God in his address to Eve in the Garden.  “Yea, hath God said?”  Gen. 3:1.  God is on trial by men in high places.  They may not know that they are being judged by the Judge of all men.  Nevertheless, the counsel of the Lord, it shall stand.
Whatever Satan does through his agencies, the true believers will not be deceived and falter.  They will be steadfast in their obedience to the Commandments of God and in their faith even if it costs them their lives.
However, we know that truth will triumph and Satan and all his hosts will be defeated and will land in the lake of fire. Rev. 19:20; 20:10.  Paganism will come to its end both root (Satan) and his branches (followers).  Malachi 4:1.

The Papacy In Action

None

Lets begin by asking who is or what is the Papacy and where did the Roman Catholic church come from? It has its roots in the Bible and it is here where we will focus our observations.

The Roman Catholic Church claims that Peter, the disciple of Christ, is the first Pope, but no where is this to be found in the scriptures. So, we will look at the development of the Catholic Church from what scriptures tell us.

First of all, the Jewish church fell into unrecoverable apostasy by their rejection of messages from heaven. They ultimately crucified Christ and climaxed their favorable position of the people of GOD by the stoning of Stephen.

Jesus foretold their destruction by the hands of the Romans which took place in AD 70 and from that time the Jews have been wanderers all over the world. Before that time came, they followed Paul and Peter and other disciples trying to counteract their work. Those who did this work where call “Judaizers”. These “Judaizers” are the ones we want to focus upon.

In the book of Acts chapter 15 we see them causing problems in the early church. In this reference they are saying that the Gentiles need to be circumcised. In Galatians chapter 3 the “Judaizers” we read that they had gotten to these Gentiles and changed their views of Christ.

In Acts chapter 20, Paul warned the elders in the church of Ephesus of deceiving the people. In 1st and 2nd Thessalonians Paul warns these Gentiles of the coming “Man of Sin”. The “Man of Sin”, the Pope was foretold by Daniel in chapter 7 and he is called “The Little Horn” power.

A careful look at Daniel chapter 7 gives us the picture of the ruling powers from the time of Daniel to the end of the world and they are represented by beast of prey. The first is a “lion” which represents “Babylon”. The second is a “bear” which represents “Medo-Persia”. The third is a “leopard” which represents “Greece”. The fourth and last beast is “The Great Red Dragon”, of Revelation 12:17. The fourth beast is the Roman Empire. It is the empire that Jesus was born under and the disciples lived and died under.

When the Jewish church apostatized from the faith, they were replaced by the 12 disciples who raised up churches all over the world. In one generation the known world, at that time, had heard the gospel from them. Their main opponents were the “Judaizers”. The church is represented as “clay” and as “lamb-like”, meaning “Christ-like” or “Christian”, Jeremiah 18 and Daniel chapter 2.

In Daniel chapter 2 a vision is given of a “metallic man” describing also the four above nations. There is the “Head of Gold” which represents “Babylon”. The arms and breast of silver represents the “Medes and Persians”. The belly and thighs of brass represents “Greece”. The legs of Iron represents the “Roman Empire”. Following this picture, we see that the iron and the clay becomes mixed. This mixture is the combination of “pagan politics” with Christianity or the Church. This mixture is forbidden by the Word of GOD and Christ Himself who stayed aloof from participating in politics. Politics is of the world and of the kingdoms of the world, but the church is of GOD and is not of the world. It represents the Kingdom of GOD. In this chapter of Daniel, the politics and the church are destroyed together and the Kingdom of Christ is all that’s left.

The Papacy came into power during the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire, before falling completely, gave its power (Revelation 13:1-10) to the apostate early church who had taken over the reins of the church after the death of the apostles and the true believers were persecuted relentlessly by those in leadership just as Paul had prophesied in Acts 20.

By the year 538 AD the Papacy had fully established itself and began the period called in history the “Dark Ages”. It lasted until 1798 AD. Millions where martyred or slain by dissenting from her doctrines which were actually derived from the four nations that preceded her which were pagan.

Another nation was arising on the scene in the 1700’s AD. It is none other than the “United States of America”. America was founded by Protestants who were fleeing Catholic Europe and the Protestant church of England who had also become a persecuting power and punished its dissenters.

When the settlers came to these shores they purposed to establish a government without a king and a church without a Pope. They made laws that were taken from the Bible and formed their government. Many Catholics also came to this nation in its infancy. These mostly were missionaries and teachers who planted the roots of Catholicism in America. Today their schools and colleges are highly patronized by Protestants. Also, in the government there are elected officials who are loyal and devoted Catholic’s.

In the Catholic church there is an order called “Jesuits”. They are a secret order whose purpose is to counter the Protestant efforts. They infiltrate organizations and churches to achieve their goals. Some are congressmen, governors, and political leaders. It used to be that they were banned from many nations but never from America because of her Christian heritage. And, so now they are powerfully entrenched in all of American life to the point that the Word of GOD is being fulfilled in Revelation 13:11-18 teaching us the final outcome of this Catholic/Protestant relationship.

America is a government of laws and there are three branches that go to make up these laws. They are “The Executive”, “The Legislative”, and “The Judicial”. When a law is passed and accepted, it gets a number and then goes to the President to be signed into law.

The Constitution defines and limits the work of the government but history has shown that when the church influences the government to make laws regarding religious worship, it has overstepped its limits and persecution becomes inevitable again as it was during the “Dark Ages”.

The action of law is the speaking of the government. In Revelation 13:11-18 America is said to speak as a “Dragon” which is “Paganism” and the Dragon represents the “Pagan Roman Empire” which was, is not, and yet is, Rev. 17.

It is going to be very interesting to see how this current elected Pope, who is a “Jesuit priest”, is going to relate to America. The prophecy says that America will make an image to the beast that was before her, which is the “Roman Catholic Church”.

We need to be looking closely at laws enforcing religious observances especially regarding “Sunday” worship because Sunday observance is the mark of her authority. When this takes place, our prayer should be as David’s was, “Lord it is time for thee to work for they have made void thy law”. A manmade religion will not be accepted by GOD for it violates every commandment in his law. We must follow the Lamb where ever He goes, in spirit and in truth.

The Shotgun Approach

“If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barreled shotgun,” he said. “Have the shells of a 12-gauge shotgun and I promise you – as I told my wife … ‘Jill, if there is ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever is coming in is not going to.’ ”

The shotgun, he said, is more effective than an assault-style weapon such as the AR-15, which he said “is harder to aim, it is harder to use. … Buy a shotgun.”

Biden has become the Obama administration’s public face on gun control, first leading a group Obama tasked with meeting various stakeholders on the gun control issue and then promoting the platform in a series of ongoing public appearances. He will attend a gun violence conference on Thursday near Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 students and six adults were killed by a gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.

ShotgunApproach

The Shotgun Approach

In last article of the Eagle Speaks, we made reference to the 1st and 2nd amendments to the Constitution.

“To give life is to make law or place under law. Adam was created by God to be under law. In fact, all of His creation is under law and obedience to His laws is essential for life. When one breaks a law, he must come under the penalty of that law because all violations have penalties. The Congress of the United States is the lawmaking body. It is the highest in the land. The speaking of the law is the law in action (ratified) and the causing is the enforcement of the law.”

“As men depart from God, of whom the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were based upon, they come up with another way of governing. This is the mystery of iniquity at work. As a serpent will strike without enchantment, so will men come up out of nowhere and strike when you least expect them to. And when these type of thinkers get in positions of responsibility, they can do the most damage in a short space of time. They care not for the greatness of the nation or reverence God. They only care about themselves and their cause. They are more dangerous than open and avowed enemies.
Presently, the first two Amendments to the Constitution are in the cross hairs of these men. They are as follows:

Amendment #1 (1791). Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Amendment #2 (1791). A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
All across this great nation, local, state and federal violations are taking place against people’s freedom to exercise these Constitutional rights. These violations are tearing out the heart of America. When America becomes like the nations of Europe again, where will the people flee to then? Who will stand up for them?”

Based on the second amendment in comparison with “The Shotgun Approach” it is easy to see a violation of Constitutional law. The leaders of this land swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. Any tendency to violate this oath to uphold the Constitution should be reason for removing anyone from office who would lessen the force of the law or it’s intent. This is clearly being done in the face of brilliant lawyers, politicians, and statesmen. They should be clear-minded enough to see the law of the land being torn down by men/women in their rank.

What we have developing in this country is a trend toward anarchy and rebellion. When the Constitution is removed, what will the people have to protect themselves? They will become a law unto themselves and the things that have been anticipated will take place. Their rights as a people to protect themselves has been abridged by those who have felt the need to violate the Constitution.

With GOD being removed from HIS authoritative position and HIS law as the guiding principle, this government is speaking as the Dragon of Revelation 13: 11. Paganism, Anti-GODism is the ruling factor instead of Christlike (The LAMB) principles. What we are witnessing are THE STEPS to the fulfillment of Revelation 13: 11-18.

The Rights of The People

People are given rights by God that are not given by man.  Sometimes, it takes years for rights to be given by man and sometimes, they are never given.  Sometimes, the call for rights is not right.  How do we know the difference between true rights and pseudo rights?
What kind of a person is it who does not respect the rights of others?  What about those in authority, government, who hold in check any or all claims for rights?
How do you feel when you think your rights are violated?  How do you feel when you violate the rights of others?  Not so?
May these few lines help to remove some of the fog that concern our rights.
First of all, let’s list some of the claims for right:
Human rights, animal rights, women’s rights, homosexual rights, civil rights, individual rights, right to life, right to choose, voting right, right to worship, right to die, 1st Amendment right, etc.
Of the above list, which concern you the most?  Which do you think are the most abused?  Which are not legitimate?  Which do you not understand?
When your rights are not respected, what do you do?  What would you do if you could do something?
Let’s see what God says since He’s the absolute authority.
If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.  Ps. 7:4, 5.
What right is brought out in this Scripture?
Here’s another one.  Look up Num. 22:21-30.  What is the right?
1 Kings 3:16-28.  What right(s) do you see?
Amos 7:10-17.  What right do you see?

Here are some considerations.
“In matters of conscience the soul must be left untrammeled (shackled or hampered). No one is to control another’s mind, to judge for another, or to prescribe his duty. God gives to every soul freedom to think, and to follow his own convictions. “Every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” No one has a right to merge his own individuality in that of another. In all matters where principle is involved, “let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” Rom. 14:12, 5. In Christ’s kingdom there is no lordly oppression, no compulsion of manner. The angels of heaven do not come to the earth to rule, and to exact homage, but as messengers of mercy, to co-operate with men in uplifting humanity.”
“Let the kindness and courtesy of the minister be seen in his treatment of children. He should ever bear in mind that they are miniature men and women, younger members of the Lord’s family. These may be very near and dear to the Master and, if properly instructed and disciplined, will do service for Him, even in their youth. Christ is grieved with every harsh, severe, and inconsiderate word spoken to children. Their rights are not always respected, and they are frequently treated as though they had not an individual character which needs to be properly developed that it may not be warped and the purpose of God in their lives prove a failure.
“Indulgence in unlawful things has become a power to deprave mankind, to dwarf the mind and to pervert the faculties. Just such a state of things as exists today existed before the flood and before the destruction of Sodom. Dissipation is on the increase in our world. Handbills on which indecent pictures are printed are posted up along our streets to allure the eyes and deprave the morals. These presentations are of such a character as to stir up the basest passions of the human heart through corrupt imaginings. These corrupt imaginings are followed by defiling practices like those in which the Sodomites indulged. But the most terrible part of the evil is that it is practiced under the garb of sanctity. Our youth will be defiled, their thoughts degraded, and their souls polluted unless they are barricaded with the truth.”
“At the time of the birth of Christ the nation was chafing under the rule of her foreign masters, and racked with internal strife. The Jews had been permitted to maintain the form of a separate government; but nothing could disguise the fact that they were under the Roman yoke, or reconcile them to the restriction of their power. The Romans claimed the right of appointing and removing the high priest, and the office was often secured by fraud, bribery, and even murder. Thus the priesthood became more and more corrupt. Yet the priests still possessed great power, and they employed it for selfish and mercenary ends. The people were subjected to their merciless demands, and were also heavily taxed by the Romans. This state of affairs caused widespread discontent. Popular outbreaks were frequent. Greed and violence, distrust and spiritual apathy, were eating out the very heart of the nation.”
“To the oppressed and suffering Hebrews the day of their deliverance seemed to be long deferred; but in his own appointed time God designed to work for them in mighty power. Moses was not to stand, as he at first anticipated, at the head of armies, with waving banners and glittering armor. That people, so long abused and oppressed, were not to gain the victory for themselves, by rising up and asserting their rights. God’s purpose was to be accomplished in a way to pour contempt on human pride and glory. The deliverer was to go forth as a humble shepherd, with only a rod in his hand; but God would make that rod powerful in delivering his people from oppression, and in preserving them when pursued by their enemies.”
“ Matters connected with the church are to be kept within its own borders. If a Christian is abused, he is to take it patiently; if defrauded, he is not to appeal to courts of justice. Rather let him suffer loss and wrong. God will deal with the unworthy church member who defrauds his brother or the cause of God; the Christian need not contend for his rights. God will deal with the one who violates these rights. “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord” [Rom. 12:19]. An account is kept of all these matters, and for all the Lord declares that He will avenge. He will bring every work into judgment.”

What Happened To Honest Work?

What Happened To Honest Work?

Do you know of anyone who can’t seem to find someone to do something like paint, yardwork or what ever?  There seems to be a growing dilemma for workers.  Even on jobsites, keeping people busy is a full-time job in itself.
People that don’t want to work who have jobs put a strain upon the job to stay in existence.  When they are there just to get their time in, it won’t be long, they’ll be out of work.
Where did this growing trend come from?  The Word of God says, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”  Psalms 11:3.  The foundation of all society is the home.  Home is where the problem is started and if things aren’t corrected at home, then the trend will continue.  Parents must educate their children in correct habits of industry and see that they learn the importance of how to live at an early age.
At the school, sports activities take the place of honest work.  Children used to do agricultural work and trades that would give them exposure to working.  Some schools have begun to see this need but opposers of practical skills are many and much of the time they overrule these healthy habits.
So what’s happened to honest work?  Its waiting on somebody to see the problem and have the nerve to correct it.
“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return.”  Genesis 3:19.

We Are Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

We Are Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

If we would elevate the moral standard in any country where we may be called to go, we must begin by correcting their physical habits. Virtue of character depends upon the right action of the powers of the mind and body.–Counsels on Health, p. 505.
In this country, physiology is not taught as a requirement in our schools.  It is left to the medical profession to study anatomy and physiology.  This is not enough or near enough to get the right results.  Everyone should acquire some knowledge of the structure and function of all the parts of the body and instruction in these lines should begin at a very early age covering the internal parts as well as the external parts.

Were this done, a lot of things that go into the body would not be allowed.  The problem with Americans, they consume almost anything and everything.  This is unhealthy.  The body was designed by God for a particular use and when it is abused, it responds with symptoms that require remedies and usually, the body defends against the remedies because they do not belong in there.  Oftentimes, medication is given to suppress the immune system so that some other medication will work.  This too, is abuse of the body.
Everything God created He placed under law and the human body is no exception.  When any of these laws are violated, there is a penalty for the violation.  God does not rule from the bench.  “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”  Galatians 6:7.  When Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, the penalty for violating God’s express command was already there.  It was not added after they had sinned.  So it is with us.  When we violate the laws of our being, we suffer the sure results of our transgression.
Therefore, we must become intelligent regarding the laws of health.  We can find them in the Bible if we study to show ourselves approved unto God and not unto people who have no regard for His Word.
It is interesting how we take better care of our vehicles than we do our bodies.  We know for sure that if we don’t take care of them, they will brake down and we’ll need assistance to get back on the road again.  As simple as this analogy is, it is true likewise of the body. Our physical habitation is lent to us from God to develop a character that would withstand all the temptations that constantly come upon us and lead us into a wrong course of action and cause pain to our love ones, who themselves, are powerless to avert the consequences of our decisions.
Believe it or not, there are many foods that will alleviate many of the symptoms we suffer with.  These are not foreign to the body and can be assimilated into good blood without putting an added burden upon it as foreign medications do with their side affects.  Herbs are also a good source of remedial agencies if used intelligently.  Try using hot and cold water and sometimes even combining them in treatment.  Drinking plenty of water is a wonderful tonic. The sun is an excellent source of natural medicine.  Using it wisely and not overdoing it, brings great relief for some sufferers.  Exercise, by all means, is cheap enough to outperform many expensive medicines and doctor visits.  Do not overdue this one either.  Use all treatments moderately and sensibly.  Eliminating certain things from the diet is a good remedial act.  Reading Leviticus chapter 11 and Deuteronomy chapter 14 is a good place to start.  They are God’s will for health.  You will experience the difference when you do this.
As we continue to print this publication, we will add other things of natural use that will be beneficial to you and your family.  We hope you will become well informed so that you can present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God.  “ And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].”  1 Thessalonians  5:23, 24.
