Philippians 3:14  
"I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

To serve God is a prize. One does not have to be a Pastor or Priest to share the Good News with others.

The Engineered Destruction and Political Fragmentation of Iraq. Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate

(Source: Global Research) - The Western media in chorus have described the unfolding conflict in Iraq as a “civil war” opposing the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham against the Armed forces of the Al-Maliki government.

(Also referred to as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS))

The conflict is casually described as “sectarian warfare” between Radical Sunni and Shia without addressing “who is behind the various factions”.  What is at stake is a carefully staged US military-intelligence agenda.

U.S. Government To Pull Foreign Aid In El Salvador For Refusing Monsanto Seeds

(Source: BlackListedNews) - Governments do not dictate major policy, major multinational corporations do. We’ve seen this time and time again, and one of the best examples out there is Monsanto. This time, the United States government wants to force GMO seeds on El Salvadorian farmers.

Africa's Largest Refinery Finds 2.7 Tons Of Gold "Missing" After Computer System Upgrade

(Source: ZeroHedge) - It's one thing to implicitly admit that there is a physical gold shortage and as a result nations - such as Germany - are unable to repatriate their physical gold held in the safe and trusted confines 90 feet below the NY Fed, gold which may or may not be there and has likely been leased out exponentially to cover paper shorts by virtually every BIS-overseen central bank (and the BIS paper gold selling team itself of course).

Bible Verse of the Day - Hebrews 12:1

Bible Verse of the Day
Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

Hebrews 12:1
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us."

What is Paul talking about? A "cloud" of witnesses, he is talking about the very large group of people around him. Paul is saying, let us set aside our sins, cease from doing them and then ask our Father for forgiveness and take the Word of God and run with it. Apply it to your life, running fast and swift, meaning keep your eye on the finish line and that finish line is Jesus Christ.

Palestine to ask for UN protection

WEB Notes: This could very well be the start of the U.N. stepping in on this situation between Israel and the Palestinians. We have watched for nearly the last year as the United States, Israel and the Palestinians have held peace talks that have failed. Now we are witnessing well over 800 deaths in Gaza due to the clashes between Israel and Hamas. We know there will never be peace, but it will get very close. When we witness the U.N. and other world organizations/governments step in on this situation know that the false messiah will not be that far behind...

(Source: SkyNews) - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas is to ask the United Nations to put the state of Palestine under 'international protection' in light of the worsening violence in the Gaza Strip.

Video: IDF massive bombing in Gaza minutes before 12hr ceasefire

WEB Notes: You have seen the "rockets" from Gaza fly into Israel with a smoke trail that fall in a field somewhere. Now see the response by Israel. Again, as we stated the other day. How is Israel with its massive spying operation, drones and satellite communications not able to retaliate to the location of the fired rocket rather than leveling entire city blocks in one hit? As a note, you can read our post here where we comment on the good and bad figs in the land of Israel. Keep an eye on Jerusalem my friends, unless this settles down very soon we could see the U.N. take action. Remember what our Father has told us regarding words of peace in these end times (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

George Washington and the U.S. Republic Militias

(Source: From The Trenches) - Read this below and please keep it in mind as you read and ponder the information given as well as the next blogs coming up, since they are indirectly related.  Now, I am a student of history and I had never been exposed either in my private grade school, public High School, or any of the various colleges I attended, to what you are about to read here.   That is how buried our history has become.   The importance our founding fathers placed on the unorganized Militia has always been down played and almost never discussed, now why is that?

Smart Homes Reveal User Behavior, Prone to Hacks: Study

WEB Notes: Your typical home router these days gives you the "option" of tagging all of your devices on your network with a specific name and "cool" icon so you know what is connected to your network at all times. Great ideas if evil did not exist in the world, but these specifics only give those on the outside the goods on you and your family. CNN reports malicious attacks have been sent FROM "smart appliances" those are appliances connected to your home network and they would include refrigerators. Because hey, we must always know the temperature of our milk while we are out and about right?

National Guard in Texas Could Get Arrest Power

WEB Notes: Sounds like a great idea right? Wrong. Now these Guard troops can be used to arrest Americans as well if a crisis develops. Never let a crisis go to waste they say. There are no good guys. Ask yourself, why are illegal immigrants being arrested on the border? If a criminal tried to break in your front door would you open it tie him up and set him down with your family? Or would you leave him outside?

Bible Verse of the Day
Bible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

Hebrew 11:1 
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Faith can be a difficult thing for some. You grow stronger in your faith, by your study in God's Word. When you get to the point in your studies where the Bible comes alive your faith cannot be broken. When the pieces all start to fit together you know God's fingers penned the Book we rest our souls on.
