Dear friends, I have been watching the news lately and it astounds me daily. Things across the world are spiraling down a rocky path at a mach 10 speed. I am not an end-times prophet by any means but I am concerned about the things I see and read every day.
The terrible earthquake and that killer tsunami in Japan was just the tip of the iceberg there, as whole cities were destroyed in minutes and radiation is spreads in the winds and into their food sources, lungs and kidneys and other organs at a pace faster than anyone will admit. Today, the news was that their run-off cooling water pumped from the sea into the atomic power plants is now high in radiation and leaking back into the sea and across the oceans. Another giant quake there would destroy Japan for a hundred years to come.
The following list of recent earthquakes is just a sampling of recent quakes taken from the government site: http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/qed/

In California, where everyone is predicting the BIG ONE, it has several plants sitting right on the edge of the Pacific and next to both the San Andreas Fault and extremely dense population centers. There is also the jet stream, running west to east that can carry radiation across the whole of the country, right across our farming belts.
People are still sleeping in the streets after the Haiti earthquake and another one there would destroy that entire nation. It may never recover from the last one.
Scientist say that the most dangerous potential earthquake in the USA is not the California mega one that will rip the state in two. It is in Yellowstone National park where there is such a powerful underground buildup is pushing its way to the surface that it would likely wipe out the state of Wyoming and all nearby states. http://www.earthmountainview.com/yellowstone/yellowstone.htm
Killer floods are sweeping across the world, From Australia to America to Asia, bringing death and disease. Cyclones and tornados are sweeping across the globe at an ever-faster pace then in recorded history.
Now, along with radical Islamic terrorist acts across the world, the mid-east is in even more turmoil and the tribal social structures that have been in place for centuries are crumbling around madness and we are now involved in our third war there, trying to take out a tyrant who we happily treated as our friend a year ago. The whole of the Muslim world is volatile, exploding in new ways and directions every day.
Yet, the underlying base of it all is radical Islam and Sharia law and the rabid hatred for America and Israel. Of course, groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda are in the middle of these riots, waiting to pick up the pieces, lauded even by our own government as peacemakers when their own leaders call out for death to Christians and Jews. Radical Islam is winning in the mid-east and coming this way soon!
Iran continues to arm itself with nukes and the promise to rain down death on Israel and we are powerless to stop them from achieving their goals. The US openly acknowledges that Syria has hundreds of missiles armed with chemical and nuclear warheads aimed directly at Israel.
Syria, Lebanon and Iran have armed both the terrorist groups of Hamas and Hezbollah – Party of God, with tens of thousands of missiles to pour down death from the skies from both the Lebanon border and the Gaza strip where terrorists are already beginning their ‘death to all Jews’ campaign afresh. Just today, another terrorist bomb went off I the middle of Jerusalem.
I do believe that while that first Syrian missile is still on its way to Jerusalem, this scripture will become true: “Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” Isa 17:1. If you read the Bible, you know how that war will end.
Even in our own country, people are marching and screaming for money that does not exist from governments that are billions in debt already. Those leaders who resist the mobs and try to do the work of their offices are demonized by our own ‘masses’ following the radical Islamists’ methods of getting their way.
We, as a nation, have disgraced the Bible and the foundational principles within it that helped form this nation and its laws and our leaders stand in defiance of them. Being a Christian is a cursed thing to the world who is embracing Islam in its place.
Let us not even go into the problems with immigration as our country is being overrun by illegal immigrants, among who are the drug dealers and criminals that prey upon us.
Today, our economy is in the tank and jobs, homes, savings are being lost at the greatest rate since the great depression and our just this week, government gave Brazil 9 Billion dollars to beef up their oil industry while our own is bankrupt.
I pray daily for this nation, its leaders and the world. However, I sense the end times are falling upon us. Jesus, Himself, gave us a clue.
I recently shared an article with you about the “Emergent Mormon Church” [Read it on our website] and how it was following the lead of the Christian “Seeker Friendly” and “Emergent Church” groups that have powered down their Christian witness to wash away the shed blood of Christ and turn it to water.
This month, The National Association of Evangelicals [NAE] held its semi- annual meeting in Park City, Utah, on March 10, 2011, promoting a program of reconciliation, forgiveness, acceptance and fellowship with the Mormons. Much was said privately by their leaders about Mormonism being a cult group, but their actions belied their testimony.
The panels were formed of only those people who have already thrown in with their Mormon Christian friends, men like Greg Johnson, From Standing Together, who travelled about with LDS Apologist, Robert Millet, sharing the wonderful things we all have in common.
Another example of the Christian Faith was Dr. Richard Mouw, president of Fuller Seminary in California, who had already disgraced all those who work to bring Mormons to Christ when in the historic Mormon Tabernacle on November 14, 2004, when he said,
…my evangelical forebears hurled angry accusations and vehement denunciations at the Mormon community-a practice that continues from some evangelical quarters even into this present day."
“I am now convinced that we evangelicals have often seriously misrepresented the beliefs and practices of the Mormon community. Indeed, let me state it bluntly to the LDS folks here this evening: we have sinned against you. The God of the Scriptures makes it clear that it is a terrible thing to bear false witness against our neighbors, and we have been guilty of that sort of transgression in things we have said about you.”
LDS “apostle” Jeffrey Holland gave a speech there and then answered questions for an hour! Surprisingly, not one person or ministry to the Mormons who might say something that might break the “sweetness of the event” was invited to speak or sit on any panel. Dear people, we workers in this field have been sold out by false Christian leaders.
Forget about the harm Glenn Beck or Mitt Romney may do to this cause. The Christian church in America is being devoured by ravening wolves in our own flocks, and not just in the flocks, but the very leaders of the church. And Leith Anderson, NAE President is a leader in that pack.
When I’m approached by LDS who want to tell me how wonderful their church is, I always tell them how much I admire aspects of their religion and mention that we still have friends who are faithful members.
“But, you know,” I say, “the one thing I simply can’t get past is trying to reconcile the polytheism of your church with Christianity, which is forthrightly monotheistic.”
One “Elder” responded, “But we worship only one god,” at which point I explained that polytheism has nothing to do with the number of gods you worship but the number you believe in.
By that standard, both Joseph Smith and B.H. Roberts have made it clear that Mormonism is a polytheistic faith.
