9-11- Attack on America & War
speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment,
and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the
stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil
against his brother in your heart.
example of the US and other NATO countries track record in
dealing with terrorists and other nations has not been one to
build confidence. Far too many have suffered because of the
strategies and tactics that have resulted in the death,
mutilation and illness of the citizens of many countries. This
is not suggesting any support for any of these actions or any
of these particular groups. But as Christians we need to
evaluate the facts, and look to the Scriptures.
has been a ten year embargo on Iraq that has led to over
1.6 million dead Iraqi people, including tens of thousands of
children--not to mention the massacre of 100,000 Iraqi troops
that had surrendered. Do we weep when we read this and
understand the torment of these people? The consequences
of those attacks on Iraq, has resulted in what can only be
deemed a cancer
epidemic according to investigative reporter Robert Fisk.
The investigation by Fisk was conducted for Britain's Channel
Four and the London Independent and revealed that the
Iraqi people are suffering from an epidemic of cancer
following the 1991 Gulf War “A nightmare `epidemic' of
leukemia and stomach cancer is claiming the lives of thousands
of Iraqi civilians who live near the former war zone,
including children so young that they were not even born when
hostilities ended” http://jinx.sistm.unsw.edu.au/~greenlft/1998/310/310p18b.htm
reality is that the CIA and US government originally funded
and provided arms so that Iraq and many other countries over
the years could build their military. Many times the US
government has instigated rebellion and the overthrow of
various governments. Many times the actions have been about US
economic gain and protection of those interests. Afghanistan
was used and armed in the same way to fight Russia, all the
while Nationalists were warning the funding was going to
extremists groups like Osama Bin Laden. At that time a
'holy war' was declared and Muslims came from all over the
world to defend their faith.
example of the US and other NATO countries track record in
dealing with terrorists is found before the Gulf War, when
Canadian arms scientist, Gerald Bull, was hired by Saddam
Hussein to build a super gun called Babylon, which was to have
a range of 1000 miles. The prototype was called 'Baby Babylon,
' with a range of 100 miles. MI6, the CIA, Israel and
many other countries were not only aware of what took place,
but turned a blind eye to the manufacturing of the numerous
components by British and various European manufacturers.
Gerald Bull became a U.S. citizen, and his Space Research
Corporation (SRC) evolved into a multinational
arms-manufacturing and arms-dealing network that was based in
Brussels. Bull had designed the HAARP gun (a modified 5-inch
naval cannon), a joint project of Canada and the United
States. He also designed weapons worldwide, in South America,
South Africa--where he was charged and jailed for breaking the
S. African embargo-and other places. After that he went to
work for Hussein, while the various governments allowed the
Iraqi embargo to be violated in favor of making money. In
fact, the funding for Saddam Hussein and these super guns was
fronted through Spain and routed through to the United
States. A Bank in Atlanta provided the funding--as a front for
the US Department of Agriculture and CIA. Gerald Bull
was murdered before Hussein received the final 8 components of
his Babylon gun. Saddam Hussein, within 6 months, prepared his
military and invaded Kuwait, which began the Gulf War.
does one deal with the funding of terrorism which has begun
from the United States, time and time again, for power, for
economic gain, for the spreading of what many other nations
view as an intrusion to their lives? This is not
limited to the United States' policies. Most countries have
the same ideas and views for their foreign policies.
Protecting and furthering their economic and political
interests. Christians are not to be of that mindset.

ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss,

interview of an Arab man, commenting on the reporter's
statement that the US troops were in the Arab countries to
help, said that the US has never cared about the people, but
were there to protect their interests. It has always been
about protecting their interests. That is the very sad reality
of how many view these actions. In fact, as Afghanistan and
other places are erupting in violence in response to the US
stand, that resentment is being fueled by what they perceive
as an upcoming attack on the Muslim people.
far as a 'beacon of freedom,' do we weep for those in Russia
who exist on less than $50 a month, a country destroyed by war
and reaching for the 'freedom' of democracy? A country where
most people do not know the Lord Jesus? Do we weep, for those
the US recently bombed, "... over two thousand Serbs and
hundreds of Albanians, in the name of "human
rights"" resulting in the Serbian national
infrastructure being destroyed? More people who do not know
the Lord Jesus. George Bush Sr., allowed over 30 thousand
Panamanians 'innocents' to be killed in order to seize
Noriega, an agent of the CIA for over 20 years. Thousands of
innocent Panamanians were held in illegal and oppressive
detention centers manned by US forces.
we weep that the US bombed the only pharmaceutical plant in
the poorest nation of Africa, Sudan, in its hunt for
terrorists--which resulted in loss of innocent lives? Records
show that even 14 months later it was proven that there was no
justification for the attack.
remembers the 1986 US strike against Libya, to rid the world
of terrorists, that resulted in the loss of civilian life,
including the daughter of Gaddafi. The target was supposedly
Gaddafi himself. Libya now has formed many economic and
some political alliances with nations of Africa, Venezuela,
Japan and many others.
is not suggesting any support of any of these particular
groups. This is pointing out the duplicity of saying that the
US or any nation is a beacon of light. Or that "God is on
of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish
from the Earth,'' said Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift said,
declaring, ``Our democracy is stronger now than it was three
days ago before these cowardly acts of terrorism.''

this is a quote from the Gettysburg Address will be recognized
by some. It is totally not applicable in the sense that those
who died were not in a civil war for a nation built on
rebellion, right or wrong. Putting it into context,
"....The brave men, living and dead who struggled here
have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or
detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we
say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is
for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the
unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so
nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to
the great task remaining before us--that from these honored
dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they
gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly
resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this
nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that
government of the people, by the people, for the people shall
not perish from the earth." [Gerald Murphy (The

this is totally anti-Scriptural will be recognized by Christians.
Democracy and those people who stand for it
will also perish from the earth if they do not believe their
need of Jesus Christ. Every nation, every political form,
every individual will be wiped from the earth that does not
confess that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh. God will
allow all to come to pass that will fulfill His purposes.
There is no nation in the Bible that rises up and unites the
world for a 'holy' cause of defeating evil. On the contrary,
the uniting of nations, for all intents and purposes, will
result in fighting Almighty God.
16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out
of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the
beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles,
which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the
whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great
day of God Almighty.
19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and
their armies, gathered together to make war against him
that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the
beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them
that had received the mark of the beast, and them that
worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a
lake of fire burning with brimstone.
fact most in Christian leadership would all agree that we are
living in the last days. Many also believe that either they
will build a theocracy and usher in the return of Christ or
that Christ's return is imminent as ungodliness is at the
worst level in history. We know that the Bible is true and
that a revival--which many are claiming, will not happen.

Bush suggests all those who uphold and join with them in the
fight for freedom of democracy are good—and all others
become evil. And while open suppression and dictatorship are
just as bad, those claiming democratic theology are no less
used by ‘principalities and powers.’ It is the use
of all political theology which will become the ushering in
and acceptance of the ‘leader’ which will bring in a false
peace. The “good” that
President Bush and other leaders worldwide are embracing, is
in reality the ecumenicalism and paganism of not just the US,
but those countries considered the global leaders of

this can very much be viewed as just the beginning of the end

‘peace and safety’. The

the writing of the above paragraph which originally was sent
in a short email to several people, the US National ID
issue has been pushed to the forefront. In an article dated
September 22, "...Oracle Chairman and CEO Larry Ellison
is calling for the United States to create a national
identification card system -- and offering to donate the
software to make it possible... Under
Ellison's proposal, millions of Americans would be
fingerprinted and the information would be placed on a
database used by airport security officials to verify
identities of travelers at airplane gates. ``We need a
national ID card with our photograph and thumbprint digitized
and embedded in the ID card,...``We need a database behind
that, so when you're walking into an airport and you say that
you are Larry Ellison, you take that card and put it in a
reader and you put your thumb down and that system confirms
that this is Larry Ellison,'' he said...Ellison's company,
Oracle, based in Redwood Shores, is the world's leading maker
of database software. Ellison, worth $15 billion, is among the
world's richest people. ``We're quite willing to provide the
software for this absolutely free,'' he said....Oracle has
a longstanding relationship with the federal government.
Indeed, the CIA was Ellison's first customer, and the
company's name stems from a CIA-funded project launched in the
mid-1970s that sought better ways of storing and retrieving
digital data....In a survey released Wednesday by the Pew
Research Center for the People & the Press, seven of

Since then, civil liberties
groups and many others have voiced negative views, some simply
due to the logistics. Others view it as a loss of freedom and
infringement of their rights. Either way, the ID has been
thrown into the ring, and many like it. The institution of the
anti-christs' mark, which may be gradual or immediately put
into place, will appear to be for the purpose of buying and
selling. In fact, tattoos are being embraced as part of being

says the conspiracies of an elite group bringing in the New
World Order that is circulated by many, is not quite
accurate. Although there may be a small group of evil men
plotting Lucifer's New World Order from behind the scenes (God
knows if that be true), the vast majority do not know what
they do, being ignorant of Satan's devices. Those ideas
include re-building into a new world order, which
includes its religion, economy and government. The Scriptures
support the fact that evil men plan for evil in secret places.
We believe that many are
busy attempting to orchestrate certain things to benefit
themselves financially and what they perceive to be power and
influence. But we don't believe they can know what will happen
and how the outcome will go. They are not God. We believe
there are many more involved in bringing about the fulfillment
of prophecy---they just do not know their role.
Luke 21:25 And there shall
be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and
upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;
the sea and the waves roaring;"
Does the "perplexity (aporia
- no way out, to be at a loss) of nations" include the
leaders? Is there anything about which even they could be
surprised? If so, are the reactions they propose ad hoc?
Truly, the Lord has control of terrorists. "This far thou
shalt go and no further." The parameters of their actions
are strictly controlled. Who is the real enemy?
real enemy is not terrorism. These attacks were only one
outlet of what has been happening world wide since the
beginning of mankind's sinful walk. Those who committed the
murders, if they are connected to Osama Bin Laden, and Muslim
militants, believe they are having a holy war. That is no
different than what is now a holy war by President Bush and
supporters. In Mr. Bush's words- we must 'answer these attacks
and rid the world of evil.' The terms 'crusade' have also been
used. Every country and its people that are supporting this
endeavor have redefined what is good and what is evil. They
have not allowed in any way, the true definition of evil and
good according to God.
is much speculation about cover-up and duplicity in purpose of
the US actions. There is much discussion of the events merely
being a part of a plan. That people are willingly sacrificed.
It is true that most people in nations worldwide, would care
very much about what happens to their fellow citizens. It
could also be said in most countries that the average
politician cares about the people. There is some suggestion,
however, that the upper echelons of governments don't really
person wrote in an email,
lowest echelon of government elected official and staff do
care about the people. But, most are woefully ignorant of
the motives and strategies of the top few hundred people who
subscribe to strange philosophies such as Social Darwinism
which holds that social policy should allow the weak and
unfit to fail and die, and that this is not only good policy
but morally right. The only real connection between
Darwinism and Social Darwinism is the name. The real source
of Social Darwinism is Herbert Spencer and the tradition
going back to Hobbes via Malthus, not Darwin's own writings,
though Darwin gained some inspiration on the effects of
population growth from Malthus."
de-population myth has been bought into by many of the elite
of the world and this has funneled down to the masses. I
think that the religious leaders and teaching colleges have
subscribed to this also. The earth must be rid of and
cleanse itself of masses of people to bring order out of
chaos. Thus, there is justification for even scientific and
psychological experiments to effect the same. Madelaine

thousand Iraqian children is necessary for the common

We will know war and rumors of wars. Stay calm, knowing that
even in persecution, God will deliver us out of them all if
we are faithful. There should be a sense of urgency to teach
the Word to those who will hear, but those with "itchy
ears" turn away from. The commands become intensely
personal e.g., "Keep thyself...." (see II Timothy,
Paul's last epistle)."
What is being promoted is
that if you are a Christian, you are proven by whether you are
politically active, are showing the same form of patriotism as
non-Christians, and desire the same outcomes as
non-Christians. That rule is also being applied to all other
faiths--as there must be consensus and unity in all areas. That
does not match with the Scriptures many say they believe as
true and as their guide.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we
have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit
which is of God; that we might know the things that are
freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's
wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;
comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the
Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither
can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he
himself is judged of no man.
One individual wrote, "
I see this as similar situation to the times of Daniel. Those
who would not bow down to the image at the sound of music

patriotism recently awakened could include persecution of

Flag waving as a show of
patriotism is not restricted to the US but is found worldwide.
In Canada, for example, many not only have bought and are
displaying Canadian flags, but, many are also displaying US

We must NOT become involved
with reformation movements which are really socialistic,
ethical and moral rather than Biblical. These movements teach
values rather than a sacrificial Christ; the Christ who lived
on earth, rather than the Lord Jesus Christ who died on a
cross; the Gospel of the Kingdom rather than the Gospel of
grace. They do not make salvation and growth in grace as the
supreme purpose of the church, but promote the betterment of
