"The way to redefine a word is to get the new definition repeated as often as possible.... This, so far as words are concerned, is the public opinion battle for belief in your definitions, and not those of the opposition. A consistent, repeated effort is the key to any success with this technique of propaganda." (L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology) :"(L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology, http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard)":
The nations conspire...the kings of the earth take their stand...against the Lord - Psalm 2:1-2 (also Psalm 74:8; Psalm 79:1-7 and especially Psalm 83:1-5. )

As the nations come against the Lord and His people, which side will you stand on?
The Ominous "Success"of Re-Education
by Berit Kjos
October 5, 2009
"The purpose of education and the schools is to change the thoughts, feelings and actions of students." :"(Benjamin Bloom, All Our Children Learning, New York: McGraw Hill, 1981, p.180)":
"As the home and church decline in influence... schools must begin to provide adequately for the emotional and moral development of children. ...The school... must assume a direct responsibility for the attitudes and values of child development. The child advocate, psychologist, social technician, and medical technician should all reach aggressively into the community, send workers out to children's homes...." "
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him." When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. They said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet
"˜AND YOU, BETHLEHEM, LAND OF JUDAH,
ARE BY NO MEANS LEAST AMONG THE LEADERS OF JUDAH;
FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME FORTH A RULER
WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.' "
Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him.
"” Matthew 2:1-8 (NASB)
One of the repeated teachings at Moriel is that prophecy is not so much about the fulfillment of specific events at a specific pre-set date and time as much as it is really patterns which repeat themselves, growing ever stronger until their last, ultimate fulfillment. That is why a lot of what we understand about Christ's Second Coming is foreshadowed "“ a pattern "“ revealed during His First Coming. Learning as much as we can about His First Coming teaches a great deal about how things will ultimately take place at His Second Coming. And I have a very strong suspicion that we are seeing some of these things taking place right now. The religious authorities of the day knew Scripture so well that without hesitation they answered the Magis' question about the Messiah, but like many today, they were completely blind to actually seeing it take place.
The Unresolved Problems with Joel Richardson's Theory
by J. Jacob Prasch
Note: This review is based on the electronic version of Joel Richardson's book published on his website "Joel's Trumpet".
The Internet has been abuzz with varying views and reviews of Joel Richardson's book promoted by World Net Daily titled, The Islamic Antichrist. The book offers interesting comment and some insightful observations but seeks to challenge and reverse the popular teaching of Babylon the Great being related to either Roman Catholicism or a revived Roman Empire, but instead belonging to the Islamic world.

The Bible says, "My people perish for lack of knowledge!" In America and other countries, our nations are literally being transformed into totalitarian states where we are losing our religious and personal freedoms. Pastors who teach the Bible and Bible believing Christians are going to be increasingly persecuted, imprisoned and fined. Under the new constitutions and legal interpretations that are being put in place, we are losing our freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of the press. The day has already come where pastors who are faithful to teach the entire Bible are being fined and arrested.
I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?"
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
The number one reason at the top of my list as to why I believe we are living in the Last Days is because of the changes I've witnessed within the church during my lifetime. Yes, the return of Jews to Israel and events in the Mideast are a sign of the end. Yes, the rise of a global monetary system is a sign of the end. Yes, the efforts of the Catholic church to consolidate all religions is a sign of the end. I believe these and a great many more of the same kind of events are literally fulfilling God's Word in our lifetime, but they are not the number one reason I believe the return of Christ is more imminent than ever. The first and foremost reason I believe we've arrived at the eve of the Last Days is that the church is no longer the salt of the earth and has, literally, become tasteless.

Marching towards Gog & Magog (Ezekial 38 & 39) Obama makes deal with Russia allowing Russia to continue to see nuclear technology to IranÃ‚Â - Jacob Prasch
The release of a world currency by the G8, governments toppled in South America and riots in the streets of Iran pale in comparison to what is about to happen between Israel and Iran. Nuclear armed subs have been sent by Israel into the Red Sea and Russia is arming Iran with very sophisticated missile technology. Meanwhile President Obama's "sensitivity workshop" foreign policy between Russia, Iran and Israel will unleash catastrophic forces, major terrorist attacks and a regional thermonuclear war.

As I wrote in earlier articles, there is coming an onslaught of persecution against Christians specifically in Western nations like the U.S., Great Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Australia and many other nations that the church and its leadership are completely unprepared for.Ã‚Â The level and intensity of persecution against true Bible believing Christians will be exceed the level of Christians in Communist China and most Christians in America and Europe do not yet comprehend what is coming.
