Normalcy takes a deliberate turn. With the approach of the first week in August, America was ringing her hands and clenching her teeth in anticipation of a credit downgrade due to its massive debt and no plan or budget to slow it. On August 5th, the downgrade hit. The markets shook and Americans bowed their collective heads in the shame brought on by her lack of leadership. Today, just four months later, it’s happening again. Without a budget, failure of the Super-committee, and an absent Commander in Chief, the United States is going to take another hit – and no one seems to care. Few realize the high interest consequences of such a simple type-change. We’re not talking about the interest rates set by the Fed but that paid by the Fed to the countries loaning us money. Is it our imagination or is the new normal to accept continuous failure? Obama is an absolute bust. Instead of beating on the gates of the White House fence to stop the spending, Obama’s drones are in the squares and parks demanding that his free money (Obama money) continue to flow into the streets.

Is it our imagination or is it the new norm to accept socialism? Weren’t we taught that America was the land of opportunity? That a any man with the desire to work hard toward a vision could reach for his dreams? How are such dreams fulfilled by relying solely on the efforts and dreams of another? This isn’t a matter of assisting the orphaned and the widowed, this is supporting the misguided and wrongly entitled. And if that’s the new norm, who’s willing to become the achiever? No, normalcy has taken a deliberate turn. It has turned in the direction of an elected leader who promised to take more from the Fat Cats and spread their wealth. Today, the Fat Cats are getting fed off-shore. By his policies, even Obama’s own economic advising corporate CEO’s are sending their production overseas. And it’s overseas that Barack’s modeled government melts down today.

As we await our second credit downgrade, the Obama administration ponders additional IMF funds to support a rapidly unraveling European economy and its currency. Certainly the reader can understand his concern. With a European economic model, Obama is going to have need for a European solution to bail him out of our own economic bleeding. And with our economy bleeding, it’s normal to ignore what’s going on in and around other global interests – like Israel.

The new norm is to shrug off the missile attacks from over Israel’s northern border of Lebanon. It’s easy to ignore the civil war to their northeast border. And with Egypt’s fairly peaceful election of a parliament controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, it’s easy to look away and repeat, “All is well there.”

The new norm is to accept Iran’s military installation accidents as just that – accidents. In yesterday’s accident, an Iranian nuclear processing plant is thought to be the point of an unexplained explosion (though Iran denies it). Just weeks ago, an entire missile plant was blown up and a top missile engineer was killed. We might not be seeing the simultaneous razing of all of Iran’s military and nuclear facilities but these accidents are reducing the number of targets Israel has to manage on the eve of a big event. And on that eve, we’re getting a sense of Deja Vu.

The head of the snake (and the only recognizable ancient king) Persia is at it again. Today, like in 1979, the British embassy is under siege by Iranian ‘students.’ Like 1979, this may be the beginning of a new emergence of the Supreme leader. It worked then, they may think it will work now. Nothing happens in Iran without the nod of the Supreme leader Khamenei. Not even A-jad would make such a grand move without his permission. As their military installations go up in smoke, the Twelvers (believers in a deistic al-Mahdi) are convinced his time, the time of the Islamic savior, has arrived.

On October 21st, Barack Obama announced the removal of our troops from Iraq by year’s end. Since then, all of the elections rising from the Arab Spring have been Islamic slanted and based on the Muhammadan laws of governance and (moral) society, shari’a law. In the states like Yemen and Syria, where the wars rage on, chaos is the momentary ruler. So we have; new Islamic governance, old Islamic governance, new embassy seizing, economic crisis, multiple civil and foreign wars, and chaos. It is this very atmosphere that was prophesied in the Bible thousands of years ago (between 2 and 2.6 thousand). It was and is a mimicking (dead) illiterate who spewed strangely similar words but polar opposite views on God and the outcome of these times.

The Bible has delivered on its promise of bridging the gap between men and God. The men who had previously been cursed by the law have been given a choice to be saved by the grace of God through the forgiveness of sins paid for by Jesus’ death. The Bible delivered on the eight faces of the devil which have appeared in the kingdoms of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Islam, and Islam (meant to be repeated). The Bible delivered on the ten territories that now completely surround Israel. The Bible delivered on the false prophet Muhammad who has created so much strife, terror, and death in the world (see Did You Know…). The Bible has delivered on the falsehood of Roman Catholicism, the many false Jesus’ religions like Mormonism, and on the lie of Islam. The Bible has delivered completely. Now, it’s time to take a stand. The question is, “Who got it right?” Was it Buddha, Constantine of Rome, Muhammad of Islam, Joseph Smith of Mormon, the Evolutionists, or the God of the Bible?

Just a note: Once again today, when asked about his faith, Mitt Romney quoted the title of his church as “the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”. He says it as though the Mormon Jesus is one and the same as the Biblical Jesus. Islam too believes in a historical character named Jesus Christ but, like Mormonism, they teach of an imposing character warned of in Mt 24:23-24: “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to decieve even the elect – if that were possible.”

The answer as to which is the truth has been given by history. But somehow, normalcy (bias) replaces the seeing eyes of men with darkness and the hearing ears of men with silence – yet their mouths still speak.

History has given us God’s example of and in Israel – who has been persecuted and oppressed by every face of the devil that has appeared over the last four thousand years (all of them embodied in empires of men). Still today, those without eyes to see or ears to hear (in the free West) use their mouths to say, “Tolerate (false teaching) and ÇOξΧiS† with everyone (those of the devil’s last worldly kingdom).” Those in the enslaved East cannot even say such things without the threat of Muhammad’s crossed swords.

When asked, “What is the greatest of all commandments?” Jesus answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Mt 22:37-40). These are Jesus’ two swords. Of his prophesied adversary, history has revealed what he (the false prophet) says and intends by his own two (crossed) swords; they’re for jihad and beheading.

The difference between Jesus’ teaching then (to current) and the bumper sticker phrases of today is not in regard to killing – they both rightly condemn it. They differ in the manner that Jesus loved us enough to tell us the truth – at the cost of his own life by crucifixion (at the hands of the men he himself offered to ransom and save). That is love.

There is nothing about evil that should be tolerated or that we should learn to live with. Love them (your neighbors) enough to tell them the truth – truth that has been breathed by God and delivered by history. There is no longer any need to differentiate Biblical history with natural history – they are one and the same.

“Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?” (Gal 4:16)

It’s Israel vs. Iran and yes, like all of history, it’s been promised. But unlike all of history before us, this time is likely the last time.
