Obama and the US Soulless Class

Assuming they had them in the first place, our "leaders" have sold all of their souls, conscience, integrity, morality and any dignity they had to the highest bidders. What remains is a soulless class of once-human beings bent upon collecting as much illusory power and ill-gotten wealth as is possible. Practicing the old game of “He (or she as it were) wins who has the most at the end” these creatures actually seem … [Read more...]

Your 2015 Obamacare, Implant, and Mark of the Beast Test

"Another Democrat, Robert Brink, began mocking him... saying, 'The voters are not concerned with such foolishness.'" Are you able to deal with the hard political and technical realities of the Third Millennium, B.C.? Here is a test, to help you answer that question. Listen to widely known expositor of Biblical prophecy, Perry Stone. Here, Stone speaks of what he's read and been told about plans for … [Read more...]

David Limbaugh Defends Christ

Presented on what some are honoring as Religious Freedom Day (not the U.S. President's traditionally proclaimed day of the same name, which commemorates the Virginia General Assembly's adoption of their Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, on January 16th, 1786).  The American Family Association is producing live events today; also presenting free of charge this week, viewings of their documentary "A Time to … [Read more...]

Four Stages of National Decline; Two Prophetic Offers of Redemption in America

A friend, PolitiJim, familiar to longstanding readers of the Bound, just referred this brief, newly released message from Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias. He describes the four successive conditions cited by God for judging His nation of Israel, resulting in its invasion by Babylon. You may wish to listen to "Four Stages of a Nation in Decline," but to whet the hearing, they are: ancestral disappointments … [Read more...]

Psalm 55, for the American RINO

Psalm 55, for Republicans and Libertarians going along with the exceedingly evil, global cartel collective.

A maskil of David. 1 Listen to my prayer, O God,     do not ignore my plea; 2     hear me and answer me. My thoughts trouble me and I am … [Read more...]

Part of an Argument with a Duped Welfare State Christian

Here is my characterization of just a little bit of a recurring argument (wait, recurring bad dream, no, argument, darn) that I've had with a fellow Christian, who enjoys tuning into MSNBC like one of the Borg hive stepping into his regeneration chamber. XX: My politics are from the Bible. We're supposed to take care of the poor. AW: Care for the poor is one reason government is supposed to protect our freedom and … [Read more...]

How Obamacare and the Welfare State are Immoral, in 6 Minutes

Hat tip to @PolitiJim for passing this video along.  It becomes tempting to write an essay here, on Godly aid vs. Pharisaical coercion and control, which Jesus cursed, in Matthew 23. There are many Scriptural references and lessons to cite. But, to keep it short and not distract from the video, here is just one more, of Jesus Himself again, speaking to his disciples about ministry as He assigned it: "Freely you have … [Read more...]

Abusing the Bible for Your Despotic Desires is Unhealthy for You, Sojourners

  Like Barack Obama, Sojourners' founder, James Wallis speaks of some of his his past associations with Marxists and Marxism. And like Obama, but unlike Thomas Sowell, Joseph Farah, Mavin Olasky, and so many others, he fails to refute it all, now. Why? Very apparently, because like Obama, Wallis' Marxist methodology continues. Finding Sojourners up to their redistributive evils in Facebook today, I … [Read more...]

Prepare this August Like September will Hit the Fan

If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it? Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy? - Amos 3:6-8 Remember the disturbances you've ever had in your stomach? Usually, such a thing will … [Read more...]

Gideon’s 300 Thirsting, Drinking Men

Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and all his men camped at the spring of Harod. The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near the hill of Moreh. The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’ Now announce to the army, ‘Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount … [Read more...]

God Didn’t Build That

Against All Enemies With the Big Bang Theory, we have given ourselves the ability to look up at the sun and moon and stars and tell God "You didn't build that!", and then go on our merry way believing that the celestial bodies are the result of random processes and not the work of the Creator's hands. With the Theory of Evolution, we see every sort of seed-bearing plant, the trees that grow seed-bearing … [Read more...]

40 Days with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Subscribe with Me?

He may have been given us even more for the 21st Century than for the 20th. I remember reading his book, as vital here and now as it was in Germany in 1937, The Cost of Discipleship. I caught it in snippets riding busses and el-trains back and forth from northwest Chicago to Oak Park. At twenty-three, I was fresh out of school and trying to make a living during the post-Carter recession, trying my hand at the … [Read more...]

Economic Collapse, Gingrich, Romney, Obama & Pat Robertson’s New Year’s Word

Fear of man vs. Fear of God The following is from CBN's program, "The 700 Club," on New Year's Day 2012, or very shortly thereafter. The visitor may have seen scoffing treatments of it, at leftist Web sites. Here it is, from the source. I have observed some past occasions of Mr. Robertson's words and senses, ostensibly of the Holy Spirit (something shown a gift of God in our age, in the book 1 Corinthians, ch. … [Read more...]

America Needs Sovereign Citizens to Crack the Faith Barrier

Presented to those interested in news of a spiritual kind Hal Lindsey wrote one of the best selling books of recent decades, The Late, Great Planet Earth, published in 1970, not long after the Six Day War of 1967. By it, he took the lead in popularizing comparisons of recent historical events in Israel and the Mideast to Bible prophecy. While Christians differ on their interpretations of the Bible's end times … [Read more...]

Happy Holy Days: Christmas and Hanukkah

To those Stressed but with Faith, Christmastime and 2012

Distress -- Strife and Victory -- 'Be Still and Know' Is this a stressful time  for you? This is the season for it, right? Shopping for gifts and preparing for gatherings keep us busy little elves, while tyrants in D.C. and those behind them are fast at work, turning us into slaves. And in our very communities, unelected local and regional "planning commissions" are snowing our neighbors, under guises such … [Read more...]

Breaking Apart the United States: Part II

I was delighted to hear that a Muslim terrorist was caught in NYC the other day.  Mayor Bloomberg and his people assured us that the "lone wolf" (a phrase repeated ad nauseum) had been apprehended.  Hurray!  Unless you are one of those worrywarts concerned about the millions of other "lone wolves" still out there, you can now rest secure in your bed at night.  But I am going astray; that is not what this article is … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving and Praise to God, with a Very Old, Brief Song

Psalm 61 To the Chief Musician. On a stringed instrument.[a]A Psalm of David. 1 Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is … [Read more...]

‘The Occupation Manifesto,’ But Do You Want the Whole Story?

What do you think? Is this what you come to Gulag Bound, to see? - - the obvious already happening before the world's noses? Should we say, "We told you so?" since we apparently broke the story of this movement on the Internet, on August 10th (a half-hour before the site was brought down again) and revealed these people as the globalist, Marxist enemy of America? Yes, that is what these "occupiers" are, … [Read more...]

The Economy: the Opiate of the Classes

By Michael Bresciani American Prophet RenewAmerica Yes, the title of this piece is a takeoff on the overworked paraphrased quote of Karl Marx who said, "Religion is the opiate (opium) of the masses." Religion is under fire in America but if statistics are worth anything it can be seen that cocaine is at the height of its popularity and in full demand, whereas religion or more exactly, Christianity, is taking a … [Read more...]

All Things Work Together for Good

Ten years -- and two weeks so far, since Reported at the Christian Post: Last World Trade Center Survivor Tells of Meeting God in the Rubble Genelle Guzman-McMillan insists that it is not fear that keeps her from returning to Manhattan's ground zero.

Chris Christie, Sharia Law, and ‘the Number of a Man’

I was just over at The Blaze for a moment, to read about Gov. Perry's controversially timed prayer gathering and saw this on the sidebar (thank you Lord, for visual copy and paste). CHRIS CHRISTIE BLASTS ‘CRAZIES’ AFTER APPOINTING MUSLIM JUDGE: THE ‘SHARIA LAW BUSINESS IS JUST CRAP’ 666 Comments   And now, I'll "go hmmmm...." Looks like someone may wish to explain to Gov.

See this Woman! Strip and Rape Her! Jew! Dirty Jew! Hated Jew

Let me not sermonize this Sunday morning as I write.  Let me show you three things and ask, what do they have in common? Is there anyone who sees what themes they share, yet denies the existence of Satan and demons, and the work they do with humans? And what rationalizing must one do, not to see the collective motives of those demons and those motivated by them? 1. A personal essay by Robert V. Averech in … [Read more...]

Bible Lessons and Revisionist More-ons

A First Grade question: How many people does it take to be "they?" This humble writer's comments today to BibleGateway.com, who are mainly using the recently revised (New) New International Version, a copy also sent to Zondervan. "...his...." "...forfeit his soul" (in your verse of the day). Not "their."  "His." This is in reference to Mark 8:36 (NIV) "What good is it for someone to gain the whole … [Read more...]

Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin

NoisyRoom By: Bookworm - From: Bookworm Room I’ve often heard people use the expression “he saw the handwriting on the wall.” I wonder, though, how many know that it originates in the Book of Daniel, which is a part of the Old Testament. I’m reasonably sure that most of my readers are familiar with the story of Daniel, but for those who aren’t, here is the briefest summary possible: Daniel lived in Babylon … [Read more...]

If MY People will Humble Themselves, Pray and Repent… I will Hear

Below are presented the words of a man who took up his cross and never looked back when God called him to serve the gangs in the bowels of NYC.  He served there for nearly 50 years, planting a church, a ministry to drug addicted teens and touching people all over the world with the love of God and the knowledge of His Word, turning lives from serving self and Satan to hope and new life in Christ. Listen with an … [Read more...]

If There is No Hell, Why Do We Need Jesus?

This review of Time magazine's Holy Week cover story appears at DefendChristian.org: Is Hell Dead? The Sad Story of Rev. Rob Bell and His Departure From the Faith   Every year it seems Time Magazine tries to exploit the Easter season with some provocative, anti-Christian edition of its magazine. In its April 14, 2011 cover story, Time raises the question, “Is Hell Dead?” This new cover story is a … [Read more...]

What Does God’s Word Say about America’s Political Bearing?

It is about time for men of God to stand up and speak out of God's Word, to rebuke and instruct their flocks about the dangers of using the methods of men to rule and reign in government, while driving the precepts and principles of God out of our culture. Unless our culture, our lives and our government rest securely upon the foundation of the Old and New Testaments, upon the very instructions of our Creator and … [Read more...]

Is America Losing the Love of the Truth?

by Rev. Michael Bresciani Over forty years of study in eschatology (second coming doctrine) have been bolstered by several revelations that came in my youth and a few later in life about America’s future. They and the prophecies of scripture are now being fulfilled right before my eyes. The only thing more disturbing than the fulfillment of prophecy is the wholesale refusal of Americans to take it seriously, or … [Read more...]
