Happy Martin Luther King day! Do you think Rev King would be proud of a black man taking the Presidential oath of office tomorrow? I think so. Congratulations to all who participated in the election and to all who are happy their man won. He is not my man but God is in charge, setting up kings and governments. His will be done, for the greater good and ultimate victory.
Luke 21:11a (NASB) and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines...
There's no plague like the original plague: but the source, The UK Sun, and the writing, leaves me suspicious as to whether this article is true. Read it with a grain of salt:
Black Death 'kills al-Qaeda operatives in Algeria'
The disease, which struck Europe in the Middle Ages killing more than 25 million people, has swept through a training camp for insurgents in Algeria. The arrival of the plague was discovered when security forces found the body of a dead terrorist by a roadside. [we are talking bubonic plague here!!!]
This one, unfortunately, is real:
Fears of Bubonic Plague grow as city alleys pile up with rubbish
For many months the Municipalities in Zimbabwe have simply been unable to cope with the removal of rubbish. Great piles of trash, rotting vegetables, putrid entrails, piles of waste paper, have been seen growing in alleys and sanitary lanes. With the ever-increasing deterioration in the public service sector in the country resulting in the vast piles of trash and sewage building up in the cities, the next thing to fear, experts say, is Bubonic Plague.

Famine-Struck Kenya Appeals For Urgent Foreign Food Aid
Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki on Friday declared the current food shortage facing the African country a national disaster and launched an appeal for $400 million in foreign food aid. "My government has with effect from today, declared the famine situation in the country a national disaster," Kibaki declared in a speech delivered in Nairobi.
I hope we are in agreement that the only 'man' to save the world is Jesus. That said, 2Tim 4:3 reminds us: For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
President 'has four years to save Earth'
Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.
The man who will change the world
In Britain, as our poll today suggests, fully three-quarters of the population say they are "confident that Barack Obama will live up to the expectations people have that he will be a force for good in the world".
Can Democrat President-elect Barack Obama save the US?
and so on. For heavens' sakes, this is pretty sickening, if you ask me.
Speaking of Kings, did you know that Democrat Representative Jose Serrano (NY) is pushing for a repeal of the Constitutional amendment that prohibits a President from serving more than 2 terms? Get ready to say "All hail Obama the President for Life!" I am not kidding. Here is the bill, introduced on Jan 16.
Prophecy in real life:
Friends, this weeks' news that Turkey (Gomer in prophecy) has turned toward Russia and away from NATO sets my prophetic drums a-beating, but it should not surprise students of Ezekiel's Gog-Magog war prophecy in ch 37 & 38. In that war, an alliance of nations come against Israel in search of her new-found "spoils and riches," Turkey among them. In addition, since January 1st Russia's use of natural gas to browbeat the Ukraine and demonstrate prowess to the EU should also not surprise anyone who understands that Gog is to become belligerent once again at the end time.
And food for thought: the prophecy says that Israel will be dwelling securely in her land at the time of the Gog-Magog war...is this cease fire with Hamas over the Gaza strip one that will be deep and lasting enough will allow Israel to relax and feel secure?
Finally, just at the time when Russia is using natural gas as a political weapon and causing a row on the Baltic and the EU because of it, ISRAEL DISCOVERS NATURAL GAS. A hugely rich deposit that geologists estimate will allow Israel to be economically independent for decades to come. Are these the riches and spoils that will cause belligerent Russia-Gog to come after Israel?
We will see. It is too soon to tell if the peace with Hamas will hold, and too soon to see how Russia, once the only dominant energy rich country on that side of the pond, will react to Israel's energy discovery. But watch! For we know the bible is true, we know we are in the end of days, and we know things will happen the way the bible says they will happen. The only variable we do not know regarding Gog-Magog is, if that time is now/soon. So we watch, wait, and pray. And witness!
