Last Minute Ads Reveal Truth About Obama's Tax and Social Security Plans

This morning on FOX News, political strategist Dick Morris said that anyone wanting to help in a last minute effort to inform voters in swing states of Obama's views on taxes and social security among other issues should consider making a donation to the National Republican Trust PAC at . The PAC will be airing television ads in crucial swing state areas in these last few days before the election, and every dollar given will help inform voters of Obama's radical views. The ads can be viewed at the website. Please consider making a donation and passing this information on to your friends.

Dick Morris Praises National Republican Trust PAC

One of the nation's leading political strategists, Dick Morris,has praised the National Republican Trust PAC.

Morris says: "The National Republican Trust is a very effective organization that can make a huge difference on election day."

We Are In The Last Days

The signs of the times are all around us. In the following article, Dr. Gary Frazier gives basic evidence for his belief that we are indeed living in the last days.

Reasons I Believe We Are In The Last Days
By Dr. Gary Frazier

Everywhere I go someone asks the question, why do you believe we are living in the last days? I am of the opinion they are right to ask this question. So, why do I believe we are in fact the terminal generation?

I want to share four primary reasons I believe so strongly that the hour of Christ’s coming is so very near.

First is the existence of the nation of Israel. The word of God is replete with promises regarding the re-gathering and return of the Jewish people to their traditional homeland. This tiny strip of land lying between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River surrounded by Muslim countries on the north, south and east belongs to God’s chosen people and no one else! Even a casual look at scripture supports this and serious study of the same validates it beyond question. That is, if one accepts the scriptures as the Word of God.

The very existence of Israel today is a miracle in and of itself. Without a doubt, nothing in history compares with this remarkable fulfillment of God’s promises to the Jewish people that they will return to their land in the last days. May 14, 1948 was the most historic and biblically significant day in world history since the first century and Jesus Christ himself.

I wrote extensively about this miracle in my book, Signs of the Coming of Christ, which may be obtained at my website, or at

The existence of Israel, in their land, is a requirement for the fulfillment of end time bible prophecy.

Second, the return and continuing rise of the ancient Roman Empire known today as the European Union or as former New York Times writer T.R. Reid call it, the United States of Europe.

The ancient prophets foresaw not only the destruction of Jerusalem and the subsequent scattering of the Jewish people into all the nations of the world. They also saw the break up of the Roman Empire and it’s rebirth in the last days. Daniel chapters 7 and 9 are without a doubt the most accurate source in the Bible for this prophetic key to understanding end time events. An understanding of this prophetic passage in conjunction with a working knowledge of world history will provide any interested inquirer a vivid picture of what to expect from Europe in the last days.

Today we have a revived form of this ancient Roman Empire that is flexing its muscles on the world scene especially with regard to Israel and the Middle East. While there are twenty-five member nations, only the first ten, Holland, Luxemburg, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Finland, Denmark, England and Greece enjoy full member status with the remaining nations as associate members. It is glaringly clear from scripture that the shift of the world focus is back to the lands of the bible and ancient history in the last days. An overlay of the E.U. of today and the Roman Empire reveals an almost exact duplication.

Third, the resurgence of Russia! It was on June 12, 1987 when then President Ronald Reagan challenged communist leader, Mikhail Gorbachev to, tear down this wall. Communism collapsed and the wall did come down in 1989. However, Russia did not die nor did she lose her aspirations for world domination. The leadership started dressing more western. Democracy became a common word in the Russian vocabulary and outward changes seemed to be taking place. However, the heart did not change. Today we are seeing a resurgence of Russian influence and power. Russia is on the move once again and this is no surprise to students of scripture.

Ezekiel chapters 38-39 predict an invasion of Israel in the last days led by Russia and a coalition of Muslim nations. While the Bible uses the ancient names of these geographically locatable nations, we easily identify them by their modern names.

Is it a coincidence that Russia is providing the technology to Iran to build a nuclear bomb which they have vowed to use to wipe Israel off the map? Make no mistake, communism lives in a new suit!

Fourth and last is America. Yes, the land of the free and home of the brave. I believe America is a real indicator of the lateness of the hour for several reasons.

Benjamin Franklin called it, the Great American Experiment. This experiment that allowed humankind to worship as they chose without fear of government intervention. This experiment that fostered creativity and capitalism in a free market economy. This experiment for which our Founding Fathers and millions since have and have been willing to die. This great experiment is under attack from without and more dangerously so, from within!

Communism has failed in almost every country in the world yet flourishes in America today. How can this be? The answer is quiet simple really. We the people have allowed our schools to fill the minds of our youth with Socialism. We have permitted teachers and tenured professors to rail against this great land of ours while promoting the perceived benefits of a Socialist/Communist philosophical lifestyle. We have bought into Darwinism and changed the truth into lies. Now, many years later, the students have become the judges, professional politicians, the media talking heads, the teachers and even presidents who openly propagate these falsities and sadly, most Americans do not even recognize what has happened.

Amazingly, our Founding Fathers saw the potential dangers and sought through our Constitution and Bill of Rights to protect us. These sacred documents however are being twisted, corrupted and interpreted in ways our founders never intended. These very documents meant to grant freedom are being used as weapons against Americans.

While I would not dare to speak for God almighty there are two things I know God has never failed to judge in history.

The first is the murder of alive yet unborn children. We the people have allowed the murder of more than forty million of God’s children upon the alter of convenience under the guise of a woman’s choice!

Second, God have never failed to judge any nation or people that have accepted and promoted homosexuality/lesbianism. While hordes of people try to convince us the Word of God is an irrelevant book, we know better. God has called this unnatural! In addition, He consistently forbids this type of behavior throughout scripture. Will America be the first nation in history to survive this perversion of morals and marriage? I doubt it!

Therefore, the answer to the question, “Why do you believe we are living in the last days?” is partially found in the above reasons. The four reasons I have cited are only the tip of the iceberg and it was the tip that sank the Titanic!

Words to the Wise (or Those Who Would Be)

“If you ask me if I believe in the eternal security of the believer, I would say I most certainly do. And I also believe in the insecurity of the make-believer.”
– J. Vernon McGee

“We are playing church. We are so busy trying to be relevant to the world that we have become just like the world….AND the world is not impressed.”
- Nancy Leigh DeMoss

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way.”
-C. S. Lewis

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
-C. S. Lewis

“I gave in and admitted that God was God.”
- C. S. Lewis

“The safest road to Hell is the gradual one-the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without any signposts.”
-C. S. Lewis

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees. Let no one go there unwarned and unprayed for.”
-Charles Spurgeon

“Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you DAMNED?”
-Leonard Ravenhill

“The Bible is either absolute, or it’s obsolete.”
-Leonard Ravenhill

“Today’s church wants to be raptured from responsibility.”
-Leonard Ravenhill

“If Jesus preached the same message ministers preach today, He would have never been crucified.”
-Leonard Ravenhill

“The true man of God is heartsick, grieved at the worldliness of the Church...grieved at the toleration of sin in the Church, grieved at the prayerlessness in the Church. He is disturbed that the corporate prayer of the Church no longer pulls down the strongholds of the devil.”
-Leonard Ravenhill

“Perhaps if there were more of that intense distress for souls that leads to tears, we should more frequently see the results we desire. Sometimes it may be that while we are complaining of the hardness of the hearts of those we are seeking to benefit, the hardness of our own hearts and our feeble apprehension of the solemn reality of eternal things may be the true cause of our want of success.”
-Hudson Taylor

“I care not where I go, or how I live, or what I endure so that I may save souls. When I sleep, I dream of them; when I awake, they are the first in my thoughts…no amount of scholastic attainment, of able and profound exposition of brilliant and stirring eloquence can atone for the absence of a deep impassioned sympathetic love for human souls.”
-David Brainerd

“We fear men so much, because we fear God so little. One fear cures another. When man’s terror scares you, turn your thoughts to the wrath of God.”
-William Gurnall

How Then Shall We Live?

What if the Rapture of the Church does not occur when we hoped that it would? Should we hang our heads in shame because we were almost positive that it would happen at a certain time, but it did not? Are we disqualified as watchmen and should we quit looking for answers or for signs of the times?

Maybe some better questions to ask are these:

  • Did the thought of the Rapture being imminent change how you lived your life?

  • Did you grow closer to the Lord in prayer and in reading His Word?

  • Did you reach out to others with the message of salvation through Jesus Christ?

  • Did you search your own heart for areas that are not pleasing to Him?

  • Did you look closely at how you spend the days that God has given you?

  • Did you seek to actually follow Jesus Christ as His disciple rather than just calling yourself a Christian and going your own way?

  • Were you looking for an escape from your life or were you longing to see Jesus?

In Revelation 2:2-5 , Jesus tells the Church at Ephesus,

"I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place."

Serious words.

Several weeks ago, the Lord showed me how much these verses applied to my life. In the midst of doing good works in His name, testing men's teachings to see if they lined up with Scripture and warning people if they did not and teaching others about the Bible, I had moved away from the Lord and was not even aware of the fact. I was so consumed with my mission and getting things done for Him that I forgot about Him. He said to Peter, "Do you love me? Feed my sheep." My priorities were backwards. I need to love Him first and let everything else flow from that rather than trying to prove by my works that I love Him. My relationship with Him must be personal rather than professional, family rather than business (or busyness!).

Mark 12:28-31 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

There is no commandment greater than these.

I had to ask myself, "Am I being obedient to these commandments? Am I loving Him with everything that is in me? Am I totally His?" I want to return to my first love. I want to do the things that I did at first. When I first met Jesus, I was so in love with Him that I had to tell everyone around me; I could not stay quiet about what He had done for me. So, I need to draw closer to Him, to truly love Him so that my relationship with Him is real and vibrant and alive.

Next, I had to ask, "Am I loving my neighbor? Or am I just being polite? Does my neighbor's life mean as much to me as my own does? Or do I prefer not to be bothered with someone else's problems or the fact that they may be living their life without knowing Jesus?" The closer I get to Jesus, the more I can hear His heart's cry for those who are living without knowing Him. Because I love Him, what is important to Him is important to me. Therefore, I choose to love them and invite them to know Him and His love even if it is not convenient or comfortable for me.

I want to live the rest of my life with my First Love as my top priority. I want to return to the simplicity of loving Him and sharing His love with others. He is my All, my Everything, my Life. And He is coming soon.
