As with many of my posts on this blog, once again I am sharing other posts or articles and sometimes adding my reflections or my ‘two-cents.’ Here is no exception. Below read this excellent article and view all four videos too in this article. Decide for yourself if you side with Pastor John Hagee or if you side with Hank Hanegraaff or Chris White.
I cannot help thinking, though, “Are we getting it?” When Jesus came the first time, why did people not ‘get it?’ I mean they had the Old Testament writings that all spoke about the coming Messiah and how he would come, and yet I often think why is it that but for a few exceptions, namely the wise men from the east, the mysterious royal court advisers (or Jewish chief priests or scribes?) to King Herod, Simeon and Anna and John the Baptist, why is it that most of all the other people at that time were caught unawares when Jesus came as a baby and then started teaching as an adult. And now I think, are we repeating the same mistakes? Are we going to be caught unaware too? Maybe most are destined (or predestined) to be unaware. Then again why are we given these signs in the Bible.
You might be compelled to just ignore John Hagee’s teachings and writings but whatever you choose we must all be prepared for the coming age of tribulation and of triumph, whether or not this comes about during our lifetime or not for many lifetimes.

Are ‘Blood Moons’ a Biblical Sign From God That Something Earth-Shattering Is About to Happen?
Spread the word! Uninstall Firefox. Go with Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera or anything but Mozilla Firefox. Boycott Firefox.
Do this, but not solely for the reasons that you might think that I am saying this. Delete Firefox to preserve liberty and to preserve tolerance. I am talking about the true sense of the true meaning of the word “tolerance.” The loony left have hijacked and changed the meaning of that word, just as Orwellian leftists have done to other words in the past. It’s what they do. It’s why I call them Orwellian. Actually, before I go on, I think Dennis Prager said everything else I wanted to say best, and with superior clarity on this subject in this article that he wrote last Tuesday.
In 31 years of broadcasting, and 40 years of writing, I have never advocated a boycott of a product.
Quite the opposite, in fact.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, when the left attempted to destroy Chick-Fil-A for its owner’s views on same-sex marriage, I suggested on my radio show that the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, stand in front of a Chick-Fil-A restaurant while enjoying some Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. In that way, I argued, he could show one of the great moral differences between the right and the left. Though Ben and Jerry are leftists, we conservatives do not believe that company owners’ views should matter to consumers. We believe that products should speak for themselves. If the ice cream is good, despite whatever repugnance we might feel regarding the views of the makers of that ice cream, we will still purchase it.
The left does not see things that way. The left is out to crush individuals and companies with whom it differs. This is especially so today on the issue of same-sex marriage.
Perhaps the most dramatic example of this took place last week. The governing board of the widely used browser, Firefox, forced the company’s CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign. The Firefox board had learned that in 2008, Eich donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 campaign in California. Proposition 8 amended the California Constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In classic Communist fashion, gay rights organizations demanded that Eich publicly recant. When Eich did not, gay rights and other leftist organizations called for a boycott of Firefox. Firefox immediately forced Eich out.
All these years, the left, after coining the term “McCarthyism” in order to disparage the right, had fooled most people into believing that it is the right that suppresses liberty. The truth, of course, has been the opposite. Worldwide, with the exception of Nazi Germany (which was a uniquely race-based totalitarianism, neither left nor right — while it rejected Marxist class-based struggle, it supported socialism (“Nazism” was short for National Socialism), every genocidal totalitarian regime of the 20th century was leftist. And domestically, too, the left has much less interest in liberty than in forcing people to act in accord with its values. A totalitarian streak is part of the left’s DNA. How you think matters and what you do away outside of work matters: More than 20 states prohibit judges from being leaders in the Boy Scouts — because the left deems the Boy Scouts homophobic.
During the McCarthy era, the left (and not only the left) screamed when people were falsely charged with supporting Stalin and Communism, one of the greatest evils in human history. But the left also screamed when people who really did aid and abet Stalin were dismissed from their jobs. In other words, for those on the left who celebrate Eich’s ouster, it was evil to deprive a man who supported Stalin of a job, but it is right to fire a man who supports the man-woman definition of marriage. Such is the left’s moral compass.
It is important to further note that gay employees at Firefox acknowledge that Eich never discriminated against gays, whether in employment, benefits or any other way. But that doesn’t matter to the left because a totalitarian streak is part of the left’s DNA.
As Princeton Professor of Jurisprudence Robert George warned on my radio show, today the left fires employees for opposition to same-sex marriage. Tomorrow it will fire employees who are pro-life (“anti-woman”). And next it will be employees who support Israel (an “apartheid state”).
The reason to boycott Firefox is not that it is run by leftists. Nor is the reason to support the man-woman definition of marriage. It is solely in order to preserve liberty in the land of liberty. If Firefox doesn’t recant and rehire Eich as CEO, McCarthyism will have returned far more pervasively and perniciously than in its first incarnation. The message the gay left (such as the Orwellian-named Human Rights Campaign) and the left in general wish to send is that Americans who are in positions of power at any company should be forced to resign if they hold a position that the left strongly opposes…
My letter to my Representative and two Senators.
March 18, 2014
Dear Representative McCollum:
Dear Senator Klobuchar:
Dear Senator Franken:
The Obama Regime has blood on their hands. They have the blood of the four men, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, on their hands since they sat back and did nothing while the tortuous massacre at Benghazi occurred. They have the blood of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the hundreds of Mexican citizens killed by individuals wielding guns from the botched gun running Operation Fast and Furious on their hands. They have the blood of all those who were killed during the shooting initiated by the Muslim serviceman Nidal Malik Hasan who is still not prosecuted under Eric Holder’s Department of (In) Justice. The fact that the Obama Regime refuses to answer questions surrounding these avoidable, tragic situations is an insult to the American people and those victims who died in these incidents.
Couple all of these outrageous incidents with Obama’s blatant overreach, with his royal decrees that undermine the Constitution, and with his release of thousands of illegal immigrants recently under the guise of budget cuts due to the sequester, and his actions are not simply infuriating, they are impeachable. Add in his thuggish threatening of journalists Bob Woodward, Lanny Davis, and a reporter with the National Journal and we have a presidency ripe for the investigation of a special prosecutor!
As your constituent, I demand that you call for a special prosecutor (and one not appointed by the president) to investigate the ever growing overreaching, disturbing, and dangerous acts by President Obama. I am tired of Obama and the Democrats and their Orwellian world.
Mr. Willem Dykstra
