Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy.

SAM HOUSTON: AS BIG AS LEGEND SUGGESTS

Bill Federer recounts adventurous life of pioneering politician

At age 16, Sam Houston ran off to live with Cherokee Indians on the Tennessee River in 1809. His great great-grandfather, Sir John Houston, had an estate in Scotland. His great-grandfather, also named John Houston, emigrated from Scotland to Pennsylvania in 1735, then to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, where he and other Scots-Irish settlers founded the Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church. Sam Houston’s father fought in the American Revolution as a major in Morgan’s Rifle Brigade. He died moving his family to Tennessee in 1807.
Tennessee was recently admitted into the United States in 1796, during President George Washington’s administration. Tennessee’s 1796 Constitution stated: “Article VIII, Section II: 
No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this State.”
Running off to live with the Cherokee, 16-year-old Sam Houston was adopted by Chief Oolooteka and given the name “Raven.” Three years later, Sam Houston returned to Knox County, Tennessee, and opened a one-room schoolhouse – the first school built in the state. He joined the army and fought in the War of 1812.
“Red Stick” Creek Indians were supplied with arms from the British. They massacred over 500 men, women and children at Fort Mims, Alabama. General Andrew Jackson was sent south in response. Sam Houston fought under General Jackson against the Red Stick Creek Indians at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend on March 27, 1814.
An arrow struck Sam Houston near his upper thigh. He had the arrow removed, was bandaged, then returned to the fight. He was struck again with bullets in his shoulder and arm. General Andrew Jackson took notice of Sam Houston and began mentoring him.
In 1818, Sam Houston, wearing Indian dress, led a delegation of Cherokee to Washington D.C., to meet with President James Monroe. Sam Houston studied law under Judge James Trimble, passed the bar, and opened up a legal practice in Lebanon, Tennessee. Houston was appointed the local prosecutor and was given a command in the state militia.
Sam Houston was elected to Congress in 1823, and became governor of Tennessee in 1827. After a short failed marriage in 1829, Sam Houston resigned and moved to the Arkansas Territory where he lived among the Cherokee Tribe. Understanding that Cherokee needed to be a “nation” in order for the U.S. government to honor a treaty, Sam Houston helped the Cherokee compose a constitution.
On Dec. 27, 1831, Houston was a passenger on a steamboat where he met French writer Alexis de Tocqueville who was traveling throughout the United States. While visiting Washington, D.C., a politician slandered Houston’s character, resulting in an altercation and trial. Francis Scott Key was Houston’s lawyer, and future President James K. Polk interceded for him, resulting in Houston getting off with a light reprimand and a fine of $500.
Rather than pay, Houston left town and traveled out west. He married a Cherokee wife, Tiana, in 1830, but she refused to follow him to the Mexican Territory of Tejas. In 1833, in Nacogdoches, Sam Houston was baptized into the Catholic faith, which was a requirement to own property in the Mexican Territory.
On his 43rd birthday, March 2, 1836, Sam Houston signed the Texas Declaration of Independence, which stated: “When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people … and … becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression … it is a … sacred obligation to their posterity to abolish such government, and create another in its stead.”
The Texas Declaration ended: “Conscious of the rectitude of our intentions, we fearlessly and confidently commit the issue to the decision of the Supreme Arbiter of the Destinies of Nations.”
Sam Houston was made Commander-in-Chief to fight Santa Anna, culminating in the Battle of San Jacinto, April 21, 1836. One report was that Sam Houston had three horses shot from under him.
James Monroe Hill wrote in a letter, Oct. 20, 1895 (“McArdle Notebooks – The Battle of San Jacinto,” Texas State Library and Archives): “As I passed down the flat lands I saw General Houston on a different horse. I afterward heard that it was the third one, two having been killed under him. I did not know then that he himself was wounded.”
A bullet had shattered Sam Houston’s ankle, yet he continued the fierce attack. In the 18-minute battle, 900 Texans had defeated 1500 Mexicans.
Later that year, Sept. 4, 1836, President Andrew Jackson wrote to General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna: “Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 4th day of July last, which had been forwarded to me by General Samuel Houston. … If … Mexico should signify her willingness to avail herself of our good offices in bringing about the desirable result you have described, nothing could give me more pleasure than to devote my best services to it. 
To be instrumental in terminating the evils of civil war and in substituting in their stead the blessings of peace is a divine privilege. … Your letter, and that of General Samuel Houston, commander in chief of the Texan army, will be made the basis of an early interview with the Mexican minister at Washington. … 
In the meantime I hope Mexico and Texas, feeling that war is the greatest of calamities, will pause before another campaign is undertaken and can add to the number of those scenes of bloodshed which have already marked the progress of their contest and have given so much pain to their Christian friends throughout the world.”
On Oct. 22, 1836, General Sam Houston was sworn in as the first president of the Republic of Texas.
In 1845, Texas joined the Union, being the 28th state, and the second largest in size. The Texas Constitution, Aug. 27, 1845, stated: “We, the people of the Republic of Texas acknowledging, with gratitude, the grace and beneficence of God. … All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. … Members of the Legislature … shall take the following oath … So Help Me God. … Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bears arms in the lawful defense of himself or the state.”
In 1846, Sam Houston became the first U.S. Senator from Texas, and in 1859 he was elected governor. Sam Houston was the only person to have been “elected” the governor of two different states.
In 1838, he received word that his Cherokee wife, Tiana, had died. In 1840, at the age of 47, Sam Houston married 21-year-old Margaret Moffette Lea of Alabama, and together they had eight children.
With the help of her Baptist pastor George Washington Baines Sr., the great-grandfather of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Sam Houston’s wife Margaret convinced him to be baptized as a Baptist in Little Rocky Creek on Nov. 19, 1854.
Governor Sam Houston wanted to keep Texas out of the Civil War, stating: “I love Texas too well to bring civil strife and bloodshed upon her. To avert this calamity, I shall make no endeavor to maintain my authority as Chief Executive of this State, except by the peaceful exercise of my functions.”
When he refused to join the Confederacy, he was removed from office on March 16, 1861. President Lincoln, through Union Col. Frederick W. Lander, offered Sam Houston 50,000 Union troops to prevent Texas from joining the Confederacy. Houston refused, stating: “Allow me to most respectfully decline any such assistance of the United States government.”
When asked why he did not join the Confederacy, Houston told a crowd outside his Galveston hotel window, April 19, 1861: “Let me tell you what is coming. After the sacrifice of countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not against you, but I doubt it. 
I tell you that, while I believe with you in the doctrine of states rights, the North is determined to preserve this Union. They are not a fiery, impulsive people as you are, for they live in colder climates. But when they begin to move in a given direction, they move with the steady momentum and perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what I fear is, they will overwhelm the South.”
The city of Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the United States, is named for Sam Houston. Also named for him are:
  • a university
  • a U.S. Army base
  • five U.S. naval vessels
  • a national forest
  • a historical park
  • a memorial museum
  • an elementary school in Lebanon, Tennessee
  • a prominent roadside statue outside of Huntsville
Addressing the Houston Ministerial Association, Democrat Presidential Candidate John F. Kennedy stated Sept. 12, 1960: “I believe in an America … where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all. For, while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been, and may someday be again, a Jew – or a Quaker – or a Unitarian – or a Baptist. 
It was Virginia’s harassment of Baptist preachers … that led to Jefferson’s statute of religious freedom. … I believe in an America … where all men and all churches are treated as equal. … I would not look with favor upon a president working to subvert the First Amendment’s guarantees of religious liberty.”
Religious liberty has it roots in the Judeo-Christian belief that men are created equal in God’s image, as Franklin Roosevelt stated, Jan. 6, 1942: “We are inspired by a faith that goes back through all the years to the first chapter of the Book of Genesis: ‘God created man in His own image.'”
Religious liberty includes the concept of “freedom of conscience,” based on the concept that a God of love desires men and women to love Him back, “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind,” but in order for love to be love it has to be voluntary and not forced submission, therefore the God of the Bible respects man’s freedom of conscience.
In Houston, Texas, Aug. 17, 1992, Ronald Reagan stated at the Republican National Convention: “Whether we come from poverty or wealth; whether we are Afro-American or Irish-American; Christian or Jewish, from big cities or small towns, we are all equal in the eyes of God. … 
May all of you as Americans never forget your heroic origins, never fail to seek divine guidance, and never lose your natural, God-given optimism. … My fellow Americans … God bless each and every one of you, and God bless this country we love.”

WHY DOES JESUS SAY TO 'SHAKE THE DUST OFF YOUR FEET'?

Actor Jim Caviezel portraying Jesus in "The Passion of the Christ."


WND EXCLUSIVE

WHY DOES JESUS SAY TO 'SHAKE THE DUST OFF YOUR FEET'?

Intriguing phrase from Bible gets clear explanation

It’s among the most intriguing statements ever spoken by Jesus, and yet it’s rarely ever discussed, let alone explained, in church.
The instruction by the Son of God to “shake the dust” off our feet has had countless believers wondering what He was really talking about.
Now, a brand-new book championing the truth of the Bible and surprising readers with stunning statements in Scripture is proffering a clear explanation of the mysterious declaration.
“When people read the Bible, it is important to connect the dots between Scriptures, because the Bible explains itself,” says Joe Kovacs, author of the best-selling “Shocked by the Bible 2.”
“We cannot expect to understand the meaning of something cryptic by making wild guesses. It’s important to read the Bible, and by that I mean the ENTIRE Bible, and accept the words on the page to develop a good grasp about what its terms and symbols mean.”
The command about shaking the dust off of feet is found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and comes as Jesus is dispatching His disciples to spread the Good News about the kingdom of God to other locations.
Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave.
As you enter the home, give it your greeting.
If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.
If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. (Matthew 10:11-14 NIV)
And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them. (Mark 6:11 NIV)
“Clearly, the command from Jesus to shake the dust off your feet is to be used as a witness or testimony against the people who have rejected His message. This is what Jesus has declared outright in His own words,” says Kovacs.
“But what exactly is that warning they’re meant to broadcast? And why would Jesus use the seemingly odd phrase of shaking the dust off their feet? It’s quite an unusual saying. But the answers can be deciphered when we take the rest of the Bible into consideration.”
“We have to remember that mankind was created from dust, and God actually told the very first man, Adam, that he would return to dust. ‘For dust you are and to dust you will return.'” (Genesis 3:19 NIV)
“Now keeping in mind that God declares ‘the end from the beginning,’ as He states in Isaiah 46:10, the command from Jesus to shake the dust off your feet has to do with the end of the story, as in what eventually happens to those who absolutely refuse to follow the instructions of their Maker. They are thrown into a furnace and become incinerated into dust and ashes, as Scripture indicates over and over.

“So here we have Jesus talking about the result of a future event, and He has told His students to shake the dust off their feet as a witness against the obstinate people alive during His human ministry. And why would His followers have dust on their feet at that time in the future? Because those who are granted eternal life in the future will, in fact, be trampling with their feet upon the dust and ashes of the wicked! God has said so:
The LORD of Heaven’s Armies says, “The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. On that day the arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw. They will be consumed – roots, branches, and all. (Malachi 4:1 NLT)
Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feeton the day when I act,” says the LORD Almighty. (Malachi 4:3 NLT)
In “Shocked by the Bible 2,” Kovacs explains:
“So when the disciples of Jesus shook dust off their feet, they were issuing a dire warning to the people who refused to accept the truth. The message was, in effect:
 ‘If you sinners don’t repent, you’re going to be incinerated into ashes and dust, and we’re going to trample on your ashes! So get with the program!’ It’s simply another way of saying this more direct warning that Jesus issued twice: ‘Unless you repent, you too will all perish.'” (Luke 13:3,5 NIV)
Within just hours of its official launch, “Shocked by the Bible 2” rocketed to the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on numerous Amazon’s best-seller lists, especially in Christian Historical Theology. The top two positions reflect purchases for Kindle and hardcover editions.

“I am so excited that people still hunger for God’s glorious truth,” said Kovacs. “Because there seems to be a famine of understanding among many when it comes to the instructions of God in Scripture. I pray this book will fill readers with God’s Holy Spirit so they’re filled with the very thing that will provide them everlasting life.”
“This new book is definitely more advanced than the first ‘Shocked,’ because it’s time to grow and mature into the person you’re meant to be, making the transition from spiritual milk to spiritual meat. There are tons more facts we all need to know. I was even shocked by the Bible while writing this sequel.”
“There is an extraordinary purpose to the Word of God, and this book will help you understand that purpose. Now that you know how to read the Bible, accepting it for what it says, this book will connect the dots on a variety of issues that will give you a much greater understanding of what God intends for us. 
We all need to keep growing spiritually, and if we avoid studying Scripture just because we think we know it already, then we are in danger of stopping our growth process. We need to put what is on the page into practice, letting God’s Holy Spirit guide us as we continue to have our personal character perfected.”
The book asks:
  • Did you ever wonder if you were getting the whole story when it comes to the Bible?
  • Might there be some crucial information withheld from you?
  • Could the powers that be in major religions actually be broadcasting a false message when it comes to God’s glorious truth?
As stunning as it may seem, what’s written in Scripture is often the polar opposite of what’s taught in many churches. The Bible says the devil deceives the whole world. He has cleverly tricked billions of people, and that includes countless Christians who profess their faith in Jesus.
In this latest work, Kovacs digs much deeper into the Good Book, connecting the dots from hundreds of Scriptures, many of which are rarely, if ever, discussed in public. He cracks the window into the spirit dimension by revealing not just the physical meaning of any given verse, but the spiritualmeaning as well. Readers can finally get a clear glimpse into the unseen world where God dwells to understand what has previously been shrouded in mystery and confusion.
Among the issues Kovacs takes head-on in “Shocked by the Bible 2”:
  • The heart of the gospel has been secretly hidden in a small book that many people think should not even be in the Bible
  • There are three words of Jesus that most Christians don’t believe
  • The intriguing meaning of shaking the dust off your feet
  • •Satan’s destiny is not what most people think
  • The destiny of unrepentant evildoers is completely different from what most churches teach
  • •Some prayers are detestable to God
  • •Important Bible themes are secretly embedded inside famous Hollywood productions such as “The Matrix,” “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” “Star Wars,” “The Big Short,” “Blade Runner,” “Groundhog Day,” “The Truman Show” and “The Walking Dead”•
  • The Bible explains who creates and allows evil (Hint: It’s not the devil)
  • •The possible day of Satan’s destruction revealed
  • •The biblical origin of the fear of the number 13 and perhaps Friday the 13th
  • Worshipers of God did unspeakably evil things to their own children
  • The world’s most famous prostitute was never actually a hooker
  • •There is a resurrection no one talks about
  • •There is more than one chance for people to repent
  • Judgment Day does NOT mean that everyone is thrown into a fire
  • The most shocking statement of the Bible is avoided and suppressed by most pastors
  • •Believers have an important job to do once Jesus returns
  • •Jesus is not the only judge of the world
  • •Did Jesus really nail the law of God to His cross?
  • The reason why people will want to obey God in the future
  • •Deception began long before Adam and Eve were created
  • •God has a serious problem with “every green tree” used to worship him
  • There’s an important reason why God allows evil, and many pastors don’t even know what it is
  • There is an unknown sin that is killing millions of Christians
  • The future way Jesus is going to “fulfill” the law
  • Why the Bible talks about “Another Jesus”
  • •The true meaning of the phrase: “a little lower than the angels”
  • The Bible says flesh-and-blood humans are meant to be changed into spirit beings
  • •There is a time coming when there won’t be darkness of night anymore
  • •The mystery of Enoch is no longer a mystery
  • •Today’s society is Opposite World
  • Plus many more …
The new book is already receiving high praise.
Pastor Dan Catlin of “Messiah’s Branch Prophecy Hour” says: “So much in the Bible that just passes us by, Joe points out some very, very, important things that will leave many shocked so to speak! The book is riveting and will hold you on the edge of your seat!”
Listen to Joe Kovacs discuss many Bible shockers from “Shocked by the Bible 2” in his interview from Messiah’s Branch Prophecy Hour:
Michael Savage, the No. 1 New York Times best-selling author and national radio talk-show host, raves: “‘Shocked by the Bible 2’ is a must read for every God-fearing, Bible-loving reader. If you believe there is a ‘grand design’ created by the One True God, this book will become another light along your path.”
Kovacs stresses: “I really want people to read the words on the pages of their own Bibles, and believe them. It is when people don’t believe the Word of God that confusion and errors are created.
“Many don’t realize that the Bible is more than an ordinary book. It is actually a code. It is the code for living now in this physical world, and the code that will get us into the spirit world. It is a map, like a treasure map that has tremendous riches awaiting us at the final destination in the kingdom of God.
If we don’t follow the map’s directions, we’ll never reach the destination with the treasure, which is everlasting life.”

GABON STUDENTS ANGRY AT SEX-FOR GRADES PRESSURE

Sexual coercion at universities and high schools in Gabon has for decades fed the "kongossa", as the rumour mill is known in this central African state

Gabon students angry at sex-for-grades pressure

Caroline CHAUVET
Libreville (AFP) - In Gabon, they're called "sexually transmitted grades" -- when university teachers use the threat of giving low marks in order to coerce female students into providing sexual favours.
"He started coming on to me. I began refusing him, refusing and refusing... until the day when he gave me zero for my main piece of work," Melanie told AFP, speaking on condition of using a pseudonym.
Another student said that she was forced to switch courses after she rejected the advances of a teacher who had "made my life hell."
Like many people around the world, female students at Libreville's Omar Bongo university have followed the saga of sexual harassment surrounding Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
These young women may lack the media draw of glamorous actresses who are stepping into the TV lights -- but they have tales of male power and sexual intimidation that are hauntingly familiar.
Sexual coercion at university and high schools has for decades fed the "kongossa", as the rumour mill is known in this central African state.
But they rarely make the public eye.
Student leader Franck Matoundou said he had brought the problem of sexual predation to the attention of the educational authorities.
Responding to AFP, university administrative staff point to the difficulty of clearly proving cases of sexual harassment by teachers.
They also argue that students should lodge formal complaints through their department heads.
"If there is incontestable proof that a teacher is guilty, that person must answer for their actions," a spokesman for the ministry of higher education.
"If this really happens, it is unacceptable and the government condemns such behaviour," the official added.
Gabonese law provides for charges of sexual harassment by "any person occupying a hierarchical post" and President Ali Bongo himself has denounced a problem "that is growing in scale and which demotivates competent people."
Yet not a single teacher has been tried over the sex-for-grades bribery, according to official sources including the state prosecutor.
"I understand it if people don't dare to file a complaint," said a teacher, aware that students fear reprisals and complicity among educational staff.
- Gossip -
Valery Mimba, head of the Iberian Studies department, says the problem of sexual harassment "does exist," although hearsay and scandal-mongering make it hard to assess the scale of the phenomenon and deal with it.
"When you want to give better grades to certain students, people will immediately think they have slept with the teacher," he says.
Some academics also say the teaching staff are also exposed to sexual blackmail from students in exchange for good grades.
"Somebody offered to sleep with me to raise her average mark," a departmental head told AFP, asking not to be named.
Another teacher said he turned down a bribe of 150,000 CFA francs (about 230 euros / $270) from a student wanting to obtain a master's degree.
Stigma and taboo provide fertile grounds in which both sexual harassment and rumours thrive in Gabon's higher education.
Some activists are calling for a specialised channel to put in place that would help to break the silence and let victims speak out.
"Proposals from students are welcome," said the representative of the ministry of higher education, adding that the only reason for inaction has been the absence of tangible evidence.
Beyond the walls of the university campus, sexual pressure and taboo are entrenched in business and other parts of Gabonese life, notes Matandou critically.
"Using women is a way for a man to assert his virility and flaunt his social success," he says.
Even so, legal progress is being made -- and "women are more conscious of their rights" and fight for them, insists an expert who has closely followed the country's struggle with gender inequality.
A law on sexual harassment entered the statute books last year, the definition of adultery has been broadened to include men, criminal law has been changed to widen the definition of rape and widows have the right to inherit their husband's wealth.
"Efforts are still needed, there is no equality, but this is not a fight that is limited to Gabon but applies to the entire world," the source said. "In every society, women have always been marginalised."
