Video of my message to Liberty University: “Facing the Fire: Standing For Christ In An Age of Evil.” When it comes to the Holocaust, we say “Never again.” Yet America has aborted 55 million babies. Is darkness not falling? Is judgment not coming? What do we think will happen?

Rosenberg-LibertyOn Friday, March 21st, I had the honor of addressing more than 10,000 students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia with a message titled, “Facing The Fire: Standing For Christ In An Age of Evil.” 

(To watch the 29 minute message, please click here.)

Opening with Daniel chapter three, I shared the biblical story of three Jewish men — Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego — who were thrown in a fiery furnace by an evil tyrant because they refused to bow down a worship a false god.

Sharing some lessons from the Holocaust, I shared several true stories of the real heroes — Jewish and Christian — who inspired the novel, The Auschwitz Escape

Then, noting that “darkness is falling” in Iran, North Korea, China, Russia and around the world, I also urged these students to love God and love their neighbors and stand boldly and courageously for Jesus Christ and the Word of God, no matter what the cost.

One of the most important elements of the message, for me personally, was reminding the students that in my lifetime, Americans have aborted 55 million babies. If this is not stopped, in the next few years, Americans will have murdered 60 million people.

“Consider the implications of that number,” I told them. “That will mean that Americans will have killed ten times more people than the number of Jews that the Nazis murdered during the Holocaust.”

We know the judgment that came upon Nazi Germany because of what they did, I noted. What do we think is going to happen to America?

Unless we repent, America will be judged. Unless we change course and God grants us mercy and forgiveness, America will implode. It’s only God’s grace that He hasn’t judged us already. I made it clear to the students that I don’t know when that judgment will come. That said, all the evidence suggests we are overdue.

We must study the Word of God and draw lessons from the stories of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego. We must also study the Holocaust and draw lessons from the stories of the heroes like Rudolf Vrba, Fred Wetzler, Pastor Andre Trocme and others. But we must also look deeply into our souls and determine whether we are willing to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Are we willing to love and protect and rescue the needy and the poor and the suffering, even if they don’t believe what we believe, even if they never choose to follow Christ? Are we willing to resist the evil tyrants of our day? Will we refuse to bow down to false gods and humanist systems, even if we are imprisoned, tortured or executed?

The lessons from the Book of Daniel, and the lessons from the Holocaust, are not ancient history that have no bearing on our lives in our times. Evil is rising today. We, too, will face the fire, and the question is: Will we bow before Nebuchadnezzar’s golden image, or will we stand for Christ and His Word?

A TIMELINE OF LAWLESSNESS IN PICTURES: Rewriting Obamacare, Over and Over Again

Guest post by Kelsey Harris and Amy Payne

Obamacare is now four years old. But unlike most 4-year-olds, it still can’t walk on its own. It’s been tripping and falling over itself for years.

Just in the last year, the Obama administration has delayed or changed so many parts of the law—not to mention the technical “glitches”—it’s tough to keep up. Bloomberg Businessweek looked at the law’s recent track record and inspired us to take a visual tour.


The White House announces the Obamacare marketplaces won’t be able to handle the menu of health plans originally promised.


Obamacare’s employer mandate that requires all employers with 50 or more employees provide coverage to full-time workers gets delayed one year.


The Obama administration announces that small businesses won’t be able to buy coverage in the online small business marketplace until November.

delayTL_10113.jpg launches with major glitches, and Americans face a wall of silence from bureaucrats when looking for explanations.


The deadline to buy coverage without a penalty gets pushed to March 31. Soon after, the Obama administration continues to avoid questions on Obamacare enrollment numbers.

“I want to apologize to you that the website is not working as well as it should.” —Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

President Obama speaks on the Affordable Care Act

The President presents a “fix” for the millions of Americans who received insurance cancellation notices because of Obamacare. His solution would allow 2013 insurance plans “to be grandfathered in.” But not everyone was on board.

“Changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market.”Karen Ignagni, CEO, America’s Health Insurance Plans


Obamacare’s online small business exchange is delayed another year.

delayTL-120113.jpg is re-launched and “fixed.”


The White House extends the deadline to December 23 to get coverage that begins January 1. It also announces requiring insurers to accept payments until December 31.


Insurance companies agree to the White House’s request to accept late payments. America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) released this statement:

“Consumers who select their plans by December 23 and pay their premiums by January 10 will be able to have coverage effective January 1.”


The White House moves the deadline to enroll for January 1 coverage again—to the next day, December 24.


Consumers who encountered technical difficulties and could not complete their applications on by December 24 are given more time.


The Obama administration announces that businesses with at least 50 full-time employees (but fewer than 100 full-time employees) won’t be subject to the employer mandate until 2016 if they meet certain conditions.


The millions of Americans who lost their individual insurance because their health plans didn’t meet requirements in Obamacare can keep their old plans (if they’re still available) as late as October 2016—avoiding a new round of cancellations during the 2014 election season.


Thus far, the White House says it will not budge on the March 31 deadline to enroll. Uninsured people must choose a plan or will be forced to pay a penalty.

WARMAL COLDING TO SLAM U.S. AGAIN NEXT WEEK: Coldest Opening to Spring in at Least 50 Years

I’m so confused: I thought Al Gore promised that the polar icecaps were certain to melt by 2012. Instead, they seem to be moving southward:

Another massive cold wave headed for Eastern US next week to put temperature 20 degrees below normal

Senior WeatherBell Meteorologist Joe Bastardi commented:

I am 58.. never seen anything close to this for late March… [The] pattern next week has as much extreme potential for the time of the year as I can find. Coldest opening to calender spring in 50 yrs at least.

Weather forecast models such as the ECMWF and NCEP, both of which have had good track records this year in identifying polar vortex outbreaks in advance, are now forecasting a massive cold blast for the beginning of spring…

I’ve done a lot of reading and research over the years on “global warming”, “climate change”, or whatever it is they’re calling it these days.

It’s a scam, plain and simple. It’s a conspiracy by the United Nations (in the form of its very suspect IPCC panel) to control huge swaths of the world economy. I liken it to the U.N.’s criminal “Oil for Food” program, only on a much grander scale.

As far as I can tell, the people promoting this fraud are either Marxist radicals, deluded drones, or scientists looking for government handouts.

And if I ever see Al Gore on the street…

Supreme Court Justice Confirms American Internment Camps Will Happen Again: “It is the Reality”


While President Obama and Congressional members have made an effort to convince their constituents that the provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act will never be used against citizens of the United States, the fact is that the laws clearly allow for the detention, arrest and detainment of Americans without charge or trial. The President attempted to assuage these fears of potential abuse of the law by including a signing statement promising he would never use the law against Americans, but the statement itself is non-binding, leaving the possibility of misuse wide open.

In the event of a declared national emergency or war, when fear and panic are running rampant, the President will, without a shadow of a doubt, implement whatever means necessary in order to control the populace and maintain order.

Detainment and interment will be at the top of the Department of Homeland Security’s to-do list.

And if you have any doubts about this possibility then pay close attention to the words of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at a recent event where law students asked the judge about the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

Keep in mind that this is coming from one of the people who will be sitting on the panel of judges who decides whether or not such an act is Constitutional:

Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case.

But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.

That’s what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot. That’s what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war.

It’s no justification, but it is the reality.

There will come a time in America when panic grips the nation. There will be riots, violence, and bloodshed resulting from any number of plausible scenarios like the collapse of our economic and monetary systems.

When this happens the government will implement their continuity plans. Martial law will be declared.

The Department of Homeland Security will activate their already stocked and staffed Federal Emergency Management Agency refugee camps. We’ve seen these in limited form during major storms like Hurricane Sandy. Those who came to FEMA for help reported that their facilities were like concentration camps.

But they were nothing compared to what would happen in a situation where hundreds of thousands of people would need to be detained under a national emergency declaration. According to various sources and a ton of research over the years, FEMA camps are situated all over the country and are awaiting internees.

A U.S. Army internal document provides some additional insight:

The document makes it clear that the policies apply “within U.S. territory” and involve, “DOD support to U.S. civil authorities for domestic emergencies, and for designated law enforcement and other activities,” including “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.

The manual states, “These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,” and adds that “The authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,” would require a “special exception” to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via “the President invoking his executive authority.” The document also makes reference to identifying detainees using their “social security number.”

Aside from enemy combatants and other classifications of detainees, the manual includes the designation of “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”

If you’re paying attention you can see the signs everywhere. The government of the United States is preparing for a widespread event that, based on their recent activities, will require the deployment of armed police, military and even a multi-million strong civilian security force.

This is happening and a Supreme Court Justice of the United States just confirmed that there will be no stopping it.
