The United States of America, the Real Scoop: Alarm, Alarm!!! - - - Audio Bible

The World as I see it is a huge "Grinding" wheel that God uses to grind us down to the point where we can accept the fact that He is the One in charge and we are the recipients. "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise" - Psalms 51:17. Now man was created with a spirit, a soul, and a body. Just as some have strong bodies and some have weak bodies, some have strong spirits and some have weak spirits. Lets compare them to say, a "D9" cat and a garden tractor. Now its is obvious that the Caterpillar is going to be able to do a lot more work than a garden tractor. With very little effort, it can grade roads, push dirt, move boulders, etc.. In contrast, a garden tractor can only do minimal work like clearing snow covered driveways or cutting the grass. Can you imagine the mess if you tried to use a Cat to mow your lawn, so you can see the need for people with different strengths of spirit. Some do the menial tasks while others are called on to run the country. Now this does not mean that one is more valuable in the eyes of God, as all are necessary in His plans. Ok, now it seems to me that a "D9" would last longer than a garden tractor if they were put to the same task, say grading a road. You would probably go through a dozen garden tractors before the "D9" needed its first oil change. Ahh, but in God's world, these two entities would not choose or be chosen to do something out of their abilities, except on rare occasions. No road building company would hire a garden tractor, neither would one apply. So you see in most cases, the task would equally grind down the respective machines. The garden tractor mowing the lawn and the "D9" building roads should have the same life expectancy. If God wanted to grind them down(ie. break their spirits) sooner, He could throw in a few defective parts (in man these could be defective genes) in each machine.Throw in a little suffering & pain (machine- too long between oil changes, etc.) (man- habits like smoking, overeating, drinking) and that could make life a bit more unbearable. Now to the world, this might seem that God had it in for them, but in reality He is trying to get them to cry unto Him for help that they might eventually be converted and be with Him forever. Another way of looking at the picture is to compare people to axes,and our situation in the world being the grinding wheel. The bigger the axe the bigger the grinding wheel. But God can use the same wheel to dull the axe or sharpen it, depending on whether we are in His will or not. Just as in real life some can burnout at a job and others will prosper, according to God's mercy, by keeping that person under his wing. I believe all of us are being ground down, the righteous to further rely on God and the wicked to find out Who is really in control. Similarly, suppose that a person was capable of getting say a 65% grade on an exam and another was capable of receiving a 100% grade taking into account they both put their best effort into it. Say the person who was capable of receiving 65% received 65% and the person capable of getting a 100% got 75%. In most cases, the world would think that the person with the 75% had tried harder(and thus deserved more praise) than the person with 65%, but God would know that the person with the 65% had put 100% into it and the person with 75% was putting in a 75% effort. Who do you think God would be pleased with, not saying our performance(this being doing the right thing and not so much being the amount of work done) is a consideration in our salvation. I think we should do our best, not to bring glory to ourselves but to God. Now the people of this world do their best to bring glory to themselves which in the end amounts to not , but they cannot be convinced of this. Only God can change a man's heart to do the right thing for the right thing's sake. Now imagine a person who is capable of receiving 100%(mind), has a "D9" spirit, and a robust body. The sky is the limit for their potential, taking into account God allows him or her to do their will, some to good, others to evil. They just mow right over the weak and poor in spirit, and then they die. Have they attained eternal life. Not. He who does the will of God shall attain eternal life. Now you do not need a powerful spirit to do God's Will, as He will supply you all the power you need, especially if you have been baptized in the Holy Spirit. I liken it to a train on it's tracks. It can pull a powerful load as long as it is on track, but can do nothing when it is derailed. Personally, I would prefer a weak spirit in God's hands than a powerful spirit in my hands, but that is not the way of the carnal. They want as much as they can get for themselves, and then they die. {Job 20:5,6,7 - That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds; Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he? Psalm 17:14(17:13 - deliver my soul from the wicked,) - From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. Psalms 49:6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13a - They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. This their way is their folly:} I used to be envious of these sort of people and was upset at God for allowing it to happen. His answer; "Do not begrudge them Bob for this is all they will ever have. The darkness of eternal death is awaiting them if they do not turn and accept my Son as their savior".

As I stated before, Man was created with a spirit, a soul, and a body. The spirit is the power, the soul is you, and the body is the vehicle. The soul comprises your mind, your spiritual heart, your emotions, and your will. The body is the means that the soul uses to carry out its wishes. The spirit is the power behind the will. Now the mind is a spiritual entity in no way connected to the brain. If this were not so, how could Jesus have died and then descended into hell and preached to the souls that died in the flood(obviously if his body was dead, his brain was dead)? Also, think of all the information stored in the mind over the years. A physical mind would eventually be completely clogged with these memories(as is a computer with bytes). The brain has approximately 6 trillion cells. This is finite and the universe is infinite. Eventually we would not have anymore space for computing(thinking) or any space left to operate our complicated bodies. The brain is the computer that runs the body, period. This is an amazing fact in itself that such a small computer can run such a complicated machine as the body(the eyes for seeing, the nose for smelling, the ears for hearing, and the nervous system for feeling, not to mention all the organs and regulatory functions) with reproductive capabilities. I say WOW!!! We did not evolve, we were created. Now the spiritual heart is the part of us that wants, the seat of our inner being, our intentions, the essence of who we are. We want to be loved, we want power, we desire glory, we lust, etc.. Consider the following scenario to differentiate the two, heart and mind. Suppose you are a thief who has spent years in prison and are trying to change your ways. You are walking down the street and you notice a set of keys in the ignition of a fancy convertible. Your first reaction is to jump in the car and take off. That is your heart speaking. Just then a thought comes to your mind about jail and you start to weigh the consequences of your actions. In your mind you come to the decision not to steal the car. Your mind overrides your basic instinct to steal. This is very apparent in small children as their minds are not capable of reason, they just want. Simply spoken, the will is the way. Now the emotions can motivate us or keep us in check and have to be overridden by the mind also, or they could dominate our being . Quite the package. But is this all that comprises a man. How do we describe the need for fellowship, especially the need for unconditional love which can only come from the maker, God Himself. He is the reason all these parts of man were created in the first place. To have an eternal relationship with Him. To enable the soul to communicate with Him in the present and in the future when those that are saved go to heaven and get new celestial bodies, eternal and immortal.

As I mentioned earlier, we did not evolve, we were Created, as was the whole universe. Now this is something I wanted to believe all my life up to the time God gave me the faith to believe. Now I do not believe I could talk someone into believing so I will not waste my breath trying. What I will do is state that creation occurred just as the Bible states. The God that I know could have done it in a microsecond(or less) instead of six days, so the time stated in Genesis is really immaterial, just something we can visualize. The Bible says that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills, but does not say who owns them on a thousand and one hills. Obviously He owns all the cattle on every hill so a thousand stands for all. Now the Bible says that a thousand years is as a day unto God, so we could interpret a day of creation as meaning all the time necessary to complete the job. Adding millions of years and having things evolve from one form to another makes it easier for us to swallow but is this true or necessary. Not. God created everything in six days(all the time necessary) because that's what He says in the Bible. "To Creation Website"-food for thought. Again the Bible records a flood in the time of Noah(approximately 4500 years ago) which covered the whole earth. Now the Bible states that it never rained before the flood so all the erosion we see around us took place during the flood and thereafter. When I visited the Grand Canyon in Arizona, I noticed that a lot of the sheer walls had not shed any material onto the lower levels and very little accumulation of material was evident at the lower levels. This canyon was created during the flood and the little erosion and deterioration evident has occurred in the last few thousand years since. The evidence for creation is all around us but God has to open our eyes and minds to see it. There was a time that I could not understand how anyone could believe there was a God, but now I have a hard time understanding how anyone could not believe in God, and tremble at the thought that they were at His mercy.

Which brings us to the point of Salvation and Judgement. We will all face God one day to account for our deeds, and be judged. It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement. The righteous to life eternal and the wicked to death eternal. How can we be sure which way we will go, up or down(figuratively speaking). There is only one name under heaven whereby ye can be saved. That name is Jesus. God came down to earth as a man, lived a perfect life, and sacrificed Himself for those that would believe on His name. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Only those whose eyes have been opened to see the sin (wrongdoing) in their lives can ask to be forgiven, as most people think they are good(have good intentions) and that should carry them through. The Bible says that man's righteousness is as filthy rags unto God. Liken it to a person with wet sores all over their body being wrapped in clean white linen. Looks good on the surface but underneath its a mess which will eventually ooze through. These are the rags. You might ask yourself, with all this evidence, why doesn't everyone turn to God. Think of peoples hearts being clay or wax and God's Love as the sun. The same sun that softens wax, hardens clay. Some people would rather go to hell than let someone else be in charge of their lives. They don't trust Him. "O" what peace to put yourself into the hands of a loving and kind God. Trust me, He will do for you what He has done for others. Just hang in there and do the right thing. He will bless you.

Work and Play. God did not design us just for work. We need to be loved and enjoy each other's company and His. Everyone needs to work (constructive, regulated effort to keep society healthy), have leisure time(doing things you like at your speed), and play(having fun with no purpose in mind). We need a balance to stay healthy. Sometimes I don't want to take a break, but I know from past experience that I need to go and do the things I enjoy. At least once a year, I have to get in my car and go on a long trip alone to be with God and watch the situation unfold. I have learned to trust Him again and again as He takes care of my needs. I think everyone needs some time alone to just be. If you are looking for God, you will find Him if it is not for selfish reasons. He wants you to seek Him for the reason of just being with Him. And then you can walk together, forever.------Love and Prayer. Prayer is talking to God. The closer you get to Him, the more personal this communion will become. Confessing your sin is the first step in this relationship, because sin separates us from God. Pray to the Father, through the Son, and in the power of the Holy Spirit. To Love God is to keep His commandments. Forgiving those who have done you wrong(including your self) will wash away the guilt and open your heart to God. God is always there, it is our hardened hearts that stop us from asking forgiveness. Praise God, He is patient. Pour your heart out to Him and He will hear. Trust God to put all things together to glorify Himself and reward us in due time. Walk with God and He will walk with us. Do not fear what man can do, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. Hang in there brother.

Heaven, Hell, and Eternity. How long is eternity. This concept is hard for us to understand as is the nature of God. We can only visualize a beginning and an end, like our view of the universe. Every year, scientists can see more and more of it with newer telescopes. One of these scientists, Dr.Carl Sagan (1934-1996)(I used to call him Sagan the Pagan because he was an atheist, no offence intended), tried to explain the size of the universe by relating it to a very large number. The number he used is called a goggle plex. To get an idea of the size of this number, lets look at a google. A google is the number 1 followed by 100 zero"s. Now that is ten thousand, million, million, billion, billion, billion, billion,trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion. Take that cheque to the bank and try to cash it. Even though its a large number, we can still write it down and visualize it. Now a google plex is the number 1 followed by a google of zero"s. This number if written down would extend to the edge of the known universe(100 zero's to the foot, 528,000 to the mile x 5,878 billion miles in a light year = 3,103,584 trillion zero's in a light year) and beyond, but can be simply stated as 10 to the power of a google. If a zero was equivalent to one year of your life, that would be a long time to live. This would still be nowhere near infinity or in dealing with time, eternity. Here is another way of looking at eternity. Suppose you were immortal(as were the inhabitants of earth before sin entered the picture) and decided to visit each and every person on the planet, all six billion of them. Just imagine your having a great time and do not have to leave to go back to work, etc.. You decide to stay with each one for a million years, a short time compared to Dr.Sagan's google plex. We are still no where near eternity which has no end and neither does God. We who are going to Heaven will have an eternity to know Him . Hell on the other hand will be an eternity without Him. Heaven is love, peace, and joy beyond our comprehension and hell is the reverse. Yes you see, both are a reality as we speak, as many already reside in each place. Heaven is more real than our present state as it is and has been God's home. This present world is temporal and fleeting. Why do we cling to it as if it were all that exists? Let us live our lives keeping in mind who we are and where we are going, doing good and hoping for mercy. This brings me to a parable about a man crossing a wide, dry and hot desert.After several days without water, he comes to a dried up water hole with an old hand water pump nearby. Hanging from the pump handle is a bottle of water and a note that reads as follows; "Do not drink the water, but instead use it to prime the pump from which you will receive all the water you need. Please leave the bottle full for others." The man thinks about this for a while. He realizes that one bottle of water will not be enough to complete the journey, but is afraid to pour it down the well. The note may be wrong and he will lose the only water he has. Realizing he will die anyway, he decides to take a chance and follow the instructions. He pours down the water and starts pumping. From under the ground he can hear the water coming but can not yet see it. Finally, out comes the water. He drinks his fill, leaves the bottle full, and takes some for the journey. It took faith in the message to do what he did, just as in real life it takes faith to sacrifice our only life(water), believe the message(Bible), and attain eternal life(abundant water). Resist the devil and his lies, his illusions that you are falling behind or losing out on the sick pleasures of this world. The glory this world can provide is fleeting, but the glory we share in Christ is eternal. God be with you.

Gifts of "The Holy Spirit": These can be distinguished from talents we have been given at birth in that they compliment the natural. Power to overcome sin is a gift. Faith in the scriptures is a gift. Faith to move mountains(spiritual) is a gift. Faith to overcome the world is a gift. The ability to write(music, books, etc.) is a talent. Some gifts are mentioned in the Bible(prophecy, healing, the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, miracles, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues), but speaking personally, God can give individuals a means(a sort of knowing His will) to carry on their daily lives without getting into trouble or just having the assurance that God is there and is guiding them at the most intimate levels. When a person accepts Christ they are baptized into the Body of the Church(as when Jesus breathed on the disciples before He ascended into Heaven and said "Receive ye the Holy Ghost"). Now at Pentecost, these same disciples(among others) were filled with the Holy Ghost, a complete and separate action from the first. This Baptizing of the Holy Spirit gave them power to do the things which they were before afraid. Not all believers receive this(nor is it necessary for salvation), but I believe those that do, have a special calling they could not complete without this gift. This may be a job which they have a talent for but not the spirit.

Predestination: This is the idea that God has predetermined who will be with Him in Heaven forever and vice versa, who will be separated from Him forever in Hell, this decision having been made before God created the universe. Sounds like fatalism does it not. Well its true. People chose to go to heaven every day and people choose to go to hell every day. WELL THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU JUST SAID, you're thinking. Right. Both statements are true(I know I was madder than a hornet the first time I heard this myself). Here is a way of looking at the situation. Consider two railway tracks, following side by side over the country side. Where ever the one goes the other one follows. The train is you, the country side is your life, one track is God's will, and the other track is your will. Where ever God wants you to go you choose to go. What ever part of your will that is allowed to happen follows God's will. So ultimately God's will prevails. Otherwise those who go to heaven could say they had something to do with it, bringing glory to themselves. Without God's intervention, we would all go to hell, so you could say He is having mercy on some. Exactly. Now those going to hell cannot say they have not been warned. For example, lets take the sin of speeding(in your car). The speed limits are clearly posted but most choose to travel at the speed they think they can get away with, justifying it in their minds. They have been given a little bit of power and they are abusing it. Why should God give them unlimited power in heaven? Consider the word "TULIP". "T" stands for the total depravity of man, "U" stands for unmerited election, "L" stands for limited atonement, "I" stands for irresistible grace, and "P" stands for the persistence of the saints. Our problem is that we think we are good people(comparing ourselves among our selves) but even Jesus said that there is only one good one and that was God. Only those God chooses will come to Him! [Romans 9:11 - (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) Numbers 16:5b - Even tomorrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.]

MORE: save to your pictures and enlarge to view. To scriptures on "Doctrine of Election".

Chew on this: In the beginning God made the ultimate pool shot. He called the balls, the banks, and the pockets. Everything has happened just as He predicted or how else could He be the God that we could worship. How else to prove to us and all those watching, that he is all powerful, all loving, all merciful, and all forgiving. Truly beyond our grasp, but isn't that the purpose of faith? [Isaiah 46:10 - Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:]

The United States of America, the Real Scoop:

I do not think anyone can argue the fact that the United States of America has been blessed mightily by God. From what I understand, their original constitution makes reference to the God of the Bible and sets down Christian precepts whereby they are to be governed and live. These values seem to have been eroded over the years and have been replaced by hedonistic values. The search for happiness will definitely shipwreck you if it does not include God, which we can see happening in modern day America. They have given the world fast food, movies, sports, Ford trucks, the search for financial freedom, materialism, and a mighty arsenal of weapons which will probably come back to haunt them. They were the first to produce the atomic bomb and use it. Although they have a deep belief in God, they have perverted that into a big business type of atmosphere, whereby earthly power and control seem to be the bottom line. Christ came to free us, not to enforce Old Testament Laws. Just who are we trying to be independent from, God? Now God always gives warnings to His children before He drops the hammer, so can we see these warning signs in America. I believe September the 11th, 2001 was one such warning. Almost a decade before, the first warning came in the form of an explosion which did minimal damage. Where's the sackcloth and ashes? I believe(if things don't turn around and Americans return to Christian works) the next event will be so devastating, that they will just have to abandon the area involved. There will be no cleanup. Given the fact that God has blessed America with so much(land, resources, diverse population background, spirit, knowledge, and ability), they should be making a better example to the world than they have been. Don't get me wrong, there are some very good people in America who have done wonderful things, but overall they seem to be out to get as much as they can for themselves and to protect that sort of lifestyle at all costs. The genie is out of the bottle and who can put it back. We seem to be on a downward spiral and the USA is front stage and center. The way America goes is the way the rest of the world is going to go. So lets all of us pray for America, that it turns from the increasingly evil path it's headed down and returns to the benevolent giant it should and was designed to be.

The United States of America is Babylon the Great. Does this not sound reasonable? It is the most powerful empire that has ever existed. Without the USA, it is probable that Germany would have succeeded in eliminating all the Jewish people in their grasp and taken over all of Europe and Asia with the help of their counterparts, the Japanese. Who else could have stopped them. But remember the fate of all the other worldly empires. There was Egypt, Babylon, the Medes and Persians, Greece, and Rome, which all succumbed in the end. Does the USA really think that they are special and God will spare them. Look what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. Can you see the way homosexuals are gaining ground in the USA and Canada. The only thing holding back God's wrath are the few good men and women in the city. Look at all the babies that are being murdered every day in both countries. If you were in charge and could see that someone was wrecking your creation, what would you do? Speaking of creation, God is being left out, and radom chance is on the throne. Would that make you angry. I think God's patience is wearing thin. He is waiting for the sins to be full before He pulls the rug out completely, and the end of the world is upon us. When they cry peace and safety, the end will come. It is inevitable. Hang onto your hat, and believe in/on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Who do the rulers of the United States of America think they really are? Check out this quote made by President Bush shortly after 911. He says in part, "You're either with us or against us ... ". Now compare this to what God says in Matthew 12:30a - "He that is not with me is against me;". Sounds a lot like those in power in the USA are acting like they are God. It's one thing to say you trust in God and follow His commandments, but when you place yourself in a position where you are making the decisions, your treading on thin ice. They have the earthly power and it seems like they are going to use it to make sure they keep the upper hand. When you do these sorts of things, you step on a lot of toes and the toes of some do not belong to Christians. Christian oriented nations are more likely to turn the other cheek, but I know we can think of a few who will not. Keep going down this path and there are plenty of individuals who will seek revenge and destruction. Does this sound familiar. Tighten your seat belts, the ride is going to get a lot bumpier in the near future. You know your car is in trouble when all the idiot lights in the dash are red, and the same goes for this planet. Everywhere you look there are signs of tribulation and increasing catastrophes. The people on TV keep yammering about the stock market, investments, and the production index, but what about the vehicle they are riding on. God is going to destroy those who are destroying the planet as sure as shootin'. Like Lieutenant Ripley said in the movie "Aliens", If those creatures get loose then all this stuff, this BS(excuse my language) doesn't matter. If you bring God's wrath down on yourself, what's the point. I don't believe there is going to be a turn around so my advice to you is to get close to God and behave yourself. The gluttons of this world are not going to change because they are following earthly desires, not heavenly. In the end, it is pride that will destroy both nation and individual. The only prudent course is to let God humble you and follow the path He has prepared for you. Do not lift up yourself and carry on the way you were before, lest you find yourself fighting against God, not man. May God have mercy on our souls.

The United States of America was born in revolution. As the British, French, and Spanish were involved in America's early history, so now is the USA involved in other countries around the world. These European countries were trying to consolidate their claims to the wealth in America and so the story goes. It seems that the old adage, "What goes around comes around" is proving to be true. Just as the Americans rebelled against the British, so now the rest of the world is getting tired of American dominance. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they are taking the bull by the horns and trying to keep world peace, but others, like some Iraqi's, are not. They have their religious beliefs as did the Americans, although I don't think religion is behind the whole thing. People like their independence and are willing to fight and die for it. The Israeli's started this whole modern terrorist activity by blowing up the King David Hotel to protest foreign domination(British) and establish their own nation back in the 40's. It's interesting that after 6000 years, the Middle East is still the centre of attention. Man started his modern journey after the Flood in the area of Iraq, and up until the time of the Tower of Babel, the human race spoke one language. God divided the human race at this time to keep them from doing anything they put their minds to, and from there they populated the whole earth. That is why the different races find it hard to get along with each other to this day. Now here you have the United States of America with almost every nationality inhabiting it. It is mankind's last great experiment in human socialization. So far they have been doing whatever they have put their minds to(even building some of the tallest towers in the world; sounds familiar, right). It is doomed to failure as God has told us that in the end times, nation will rise up against nation(nation meaning the separate races). Look at all the trouble that has happened in Europe in the last 100 years alone, in so called civilized nations. Now America, and other western countries, have a great diversity of races and with nowhere else to go on the planet to start over, were up against the wall. The problem is, whose going to control all those nuclear weapons that they have created. Sooner or later, there is going to be a breakdown and all hell is going to let loose. There can be no heaven on earth, so why not stop looking for it now and join God's Kingdom by accepting Christ as your saviour, and looking forward to being with Him. That's the only plan that makes sense as God winds up His work here on earth.

Daniel 4:17 - This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

You may not agree, but I think the biggest Problem in the U.S.A. is, "They have too much Freedom"

Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

In a Nutshell, my supernatural experience happened at night in February of 1983, beginning at the Yale tunnel near Yale, BC, Canada and ending at Cache Creek, BC. This is where God took over the control of my physical being in this world and conversed with me for the two hours it took for my 1982 Toyota 4x4 to traverse from Yale to Cache Creek on the Trans Canada Hwy. Physically and situationally, I was still in the cab of my truck, but my spirit was communing with the LORD. See my video on the route through the Fraser River and Thompson River Canyons with the complete narrative, HERE.

As an aside, the Trans Canada Hwy is the main route from coast to coast in Canada. My journey took place before the section from Kamloops to Hope was replaced with the Coquihalla, starting in 1986.
