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!”

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.

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.
