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?

McGrath: “If You Think the Crisis of 2008 is Over, Then You’re Falling Right Into the Game Plan”

gameplan

The game is rigged, the pain is coming, and we’re all about to become victims of greed and government once again.

Charlie McGrath of Wide Awake News explains why:

If you think the crisis of 2008 is over, then you’re falling right into the game plan of The Powers That Be.

Washington D.C., the Federal Reserve, any business analyst that can get in front of a camera… wants you to believe that any coming crisis financially is not related to 2008. It’s going to be a new event altogether. And they’re going to blame it on you… the American people.

If you believe that then you have been duped.

The crisis of 2008 never ended. It got far, far worse. We haven’t fixed any of the problems. We’ve made them more systemic. We’ve made them more powerful and more in control of this economy.

Out of the top 25 companies that were heavy into sub-prime mortgages… the leaders and CEO’s of these corporations, to a man and woman, are back in the lending business.

They’re back in the game… You would think some of these guys would be in prison; they’re not. They’re back working at this exact same thing that tanked this country in 2008.

As Charlie notes, these exact same people, the ones who engineered the sub-prime debacle that wiped out the wealth of millions of Americans, are now doing exactly what they were doing before. They’re lending money to unqualified borrowers to the tune of tens of billions of dollars because they say they, “want to help.”

But, as before, they are luring American borrowers into taking on interest-only loans that will lead to more foreclosures and defaults as soon as the payments on the those mortgages reset.

This isn’t about helping Americans. This is about money, plain and simple.

Will we never learn?

The honest answer: no.

There is only one way this is going to end and it’s going to be horrific for 99% of us.

McGrath continues…

Before you think I am just sounding bitter because these wealthy people [bank leaders] managed to hold on to their money while so many people in this nation saw their standard of living fall, saw their number one investment tank, and saw their future basically be throw into the air in the form of sovereign debt, I’m not.

I’m telling you all this because it’s going to happen again. 

A story came out just yesterday showing that the Federal Reserve, this institution that bent over backwards to save the aforementioned individuals and institutions that they work for, now holds more debt… than was ever created in this nation from George Washington through Bill Clinton… $ 3.4 trillion they now own.

You might think that’s great. You stick them with the bill and walk away.

But that’s not the way it’s going to work.

With this holding of debt they also hold the power over this economy.

Our leaders must understand that this private institution, that is not federal and that has no reserves, is running roughshod over this economy and they’re serving their financial special interest masters on Wall Street because that’s what they’re made up of.

And at the end of the day when this comes crashing down they will be the ones holding all the power.

We need to realize this because this crisis is not over. A far worse crisis is yet to come.

We live in a nation of people who will not step out of their perceived reality, and they are going to pay the price for their ignorance.

In a previous commentary Charlie McGrath warned about the disaster that will soon come our way.

We’re talking about the potential for an absolute credit freeze that will make the situation in New York spread across this country almost overnight.

Ask yourself this question: Are you prepared to take care of yourself?

If you cannot answer that question with the affirmative it is time to stop just listening to alternative media and thinking of it as entertainment, but taking the advice seriously and considering if you have a plan to take care of yourself and loved ones if the situation arises.

Because if you look around this world, if you look at the mainstream media, they’re forewarning you about what’s coming.

There is a disaster coming. Get ready for it. Make sure you are mentally and physically prepared for what is coming.

From Charlie McGrath of Wide Awake News

When the credit markets froze in 2008, then Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson warned members of Congress that if something wasn’t done there would be tanks on the streets of America.

Some would laugh at that notion. But this is no conjecture.

Guess what folks… this next go ’round there will be no bail out, no saving the system, and no relief coming.

What’s coming is what the U.S. government has been simulating for the last half decade: A total collapse of our financial system, civil unrest, and the very real possibility of a lock-down of the United States of America in its entirety.

Get Out There And Start Shopping: “No Possibility of Falling Back Into Recession”

It’s not all doom and gloom out there.

In fact, the U.S. economy is doing so well there is nothing to worry about any more, according to a new report from well known analytics firm Moody’s.

Based on their detailed analysis, there is no longer any possibility of falling back into a recession in 49 of our 50 states:

All U.S. states except for Delaware have escaped the possibility of falling back into recession, as they reap the rewards of strong private-sector employment and a burgeoning energy sector, according to an analysis released on Tuesday.

Moody’s Analytics, which tracks state and metropolitan economies, added Illinois, Wisconsin and Alabama to its list of states in recovery. That left Delaware alone in its “at risk of recession” category.

Moody’s Analytics, a unit of Moody’s evaluates economics and financial risk around the world. A separate unit, the credit ratings agency Moody’s Investors Service, recently said the outlook for states is now stable, after five years of being negative.

Moody’s Analytics considers multiple factors alongside employment – mainly housing and industrial production – when assessing the business cycle in a state.

Currently no state is in recession, it found, and seven are in economic expansion.

Via Survival and Prosperity

Never mind that the latest Gallup (un)employment survey indicates that 604,000 fewer people were employed this month than last month and over 1.4 million people left the workforce (and are no longer counted),  or that more American households are receiving food stamps today than ever before in the history of the United States, or that major cities across the country are on the very cusp of going bankrupt.

Nope, we’re now in the clear.

And not only are we no longer in recession, just the other day it was noted that numerous government sponsored studies claim that in the midst of disasters and emergencies there is never any panic, no looting, and people don’t go hungry or get sick.

So there you have it folks. We’ve been all wrong… about everything.

It’s time to stop preparing for the worst, stop worrying about an economic collapse that will never happen, and get out there and start shopping!

We want to thank Presidents Bush and Obama, the good people at the Federal Reserve, all of the institutional bankers doing God’s work, and of course, all the little people who lost their homes, jobs, health insurance, and life savings for making this recovery possible.

Green shoots have never tasted so sweet.
