PRAYER IS ONLY THE ANSWER IF YOU PRAY
Atrocities have historically been the means to greater control over the populous in those governments that seek to be police states with totalitarian powers…
The murders that have just occurred in Newtown Connecticut as well as other such evil that has happened in recent years is good cause for reasonable suspicion that an unseen force is behind them all. One can hardly help but ask cui bono???
The cries for more gun ownership restrictions that have immediately followed such murders and the truth that has come about in recent years that our government was more than willing to lie to the people to justify invasions into foreign countries, should leave little doubt as to how little value they place on human life.
There is a problem, but what to do about it??? It makes no sense to continue to petition a government that obviously does not care. The will of the people was overwhelmingly against the invasions into other sovereign countries in recent years, but it made no difference. We do not have rule by consent of the people in this country on any issue where the government has a different agenda. If one says otherwise they must be using rules of logic that have no basis in the real world.
This blog attempts to follow Christian principles and to exhort Christians in Biblical solutions. The Bible clearly teaches that God’s people should pray to Him for answers and not put any other god above Him, not even the government of the United States, whether local, state, or federal. Many in America clearly have whored themselves by not caring that the state governs contrary to the Laws of the Almighty. It is time to stop it and turn back.
They could not stop you from praying to The Almighty if they tried. You America, stopped seeking Him on your own. You have the government you deserve because God promised that if you did not desire to serve Him He would turn you over to the control of your enemies. It appears He has done a very good job in doing just that. He keeps His promises for better or for worse. There is an unseen evil force, one that will continue to “steal, kill, and destroy” until you America figure this truth out, and repent.
To the Christians that read this…
PRAY FOR YOUR COUNTRY AND YOUR PEOPLE
It is wrong that children should be murdered because you will not do what you know you should be doing and should have been doing all along…
School shooting in Connecticut casts somber mood across nation
School shooting in Connecticut kills 27 people, including 20 children, marking the deadliest and most shocking primary-school shooting in recent US history.

The rampage inside a Newtown, Conn., elementary school Friday, killing 27 people, including 20 children, marks the deadliest and most shocking primary-school shooting in recent US history.
Eyewitnesses said they heard at least 100 shots before police reported to an atrocious shooting scene at Sandy Hook Elementary. Among the dead, according to news reports, were the school principal and a school psychologist who had rushed into a hallway when they heard gun pops.
Scenes of police searching local woods only added to a sense of confusion, tragedy, and dread after a span of months where the nation has been jolted again and again as gunmen have entered public spaces and opened fire.
Just this week, a young man opened fire at a packed Oregon mall, killing two people. In July, another young man is accused of opening fire at a midnight showing of a “Batman” film in Aurora, Colo., killing 12 and injuring 58.
“My heart is in a million pieces right now,” one Sandy Hook mom told CNN, summing up a somber mood across the nation.
President Obama, wiping away tears, said at the White House, “Each time I learn news like this I react not as a president, but as anybody else would, as a parent, and that’s especially true today.” He added, “As a country we have been through this too many times – an elementary school in Newtown, a shopping mall in Oregon, a temple in Wisconsin, a movie theater in Aurora, a street corner in Chicago. These are our neighborhoods, these children are our children. We have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, no matter the politics.”
Indeed, the shooting is likely to throw new focus on post-Columbine school security measures, as well as the knotty issue of gun control. Just this year, the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary had sent a letter to parents informing them of a new security protocol. It included staff viewing visitors through a camera before buzzing them in, while parents who weren’t familiar to staff would have to show picture IDs.
“With nearly 700 students and over 1,000 parents, most parents will be asked for a picture ID,” the principal, Dawn Hochsprung, wrote.
In the past few weeks, some have speculated that major gun-control legislation could be raised in a second term by Mr. Obama, who up until now has been hesitant to tackle the issue amid numerous major court decisions that support Americans’ constitutional right to bear arms for self-defense.
But an attack on innocent children in a quiet, New England town that one resident called “the safest place in America” instantly reignited the gun-control debate. White House spokesman Jay Carney made an initial response to that debate.
“It’s important on a day like today to … feel enormous sympathy for families that are affected and to do everything we can to support state and local law enforcement and support those who are enduring what appears to be a very tragic event,” he said. “There is, I’m sure, will be, rather, a day for discussion of the usual Washington policy debates, but I don’t think today is that day.”
Among school shootings in the United States, only the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, where 32 people died, took a greater toll. Since the 1999 Columbine shootings, where 12 students and one teacher died, the deadliest school shooting came in 2005 on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota, where a troubled student killed four classmates, four adults, and then himself. Also, in 2006, five girls were killed at an Amish school, West Nickel Mines School, Pennsylvania.
The deadliest school incident in US history took place in Bath Township in Michigan in 1927, when an enraged school-board treasurer set off three bombs that killed 44 people, including 38 schoolchildren as young as 7, before killing himself with a car bomb.
Some news outlets were reporting that the gunman was in his 20s and that his mother was a teacher at the school. She was apparently killed, as well as some of her students. More than one weapon, including a .223-caliber rifle, was recovered at the scene, according to media reports. The gunman was apparently found dead in a classroom, but it wasn’t clear if his death was self-inflicted. Another fatality connected to the rampage was also reported at another location.
The massacre of the children of America
By Michael Hoffman Friday, December 14, 2012
On December 14, like Herod of old, a killer of children descended upon our land, at a school in Connecticut, where he proceeded to butcher our future, in the form of twenty American youngsters.
The massacre in Aurora, Colorado last summer, and now the Christmas season shootings in Oregon and Connecticut, testify that our nation has lost its way: usury, aborting innocent infants, and foreign wars on civilian populations are the new normal.
We ought to slow down now, in the midst of the Connecticut carnage, and reflect on our money-mad spirit of acquisition, our indifference to the crimes our government perpetrates overseas with our tax dollars, the mockery of marriage represented by homosexual nuptials, our apathy in the face of the slaughter of unborn children amid our nation’s staggering level of abortion; and the filth on commercial television which is broadcast to millions of children.
In all these ways and more, America attacks children, just as surely at they were attacked today in Connecticut. We must change our ways, repent of our sins and seek God’s will.
Furthermore, let us not hear about the “need for gun control.” Gun control is a contributing factor in these massacres. The police SWAT teams almost always arrive too late to stop a rampage. The cowardly perpetrator(s) murders the defenseless in part because he surmises that teachers, and clerical and jantorial staff, are unarmed. One or more armed teachers or janitors might have saved the lives of several of the children in Connecticut today. Almost any honest cop will tell you they can’t protect you, they can only try to apprehend the perps after the crime has been committed. An armed citizenry is necessary for the protection of the innocent from the rising tide of Satanic violence in our society.
While most of the perpetrators of massacres are suicides, lately more have chosen to survive, and some even don bullet proof vests and other types of body armor. With the near abolition of the death penalty in the United States, they can survive for decades in prison as media celebrities. Two perpetrators of a school massacre in 1998 in Arkansas have either been released from prison or are due to be released because they were age 10 and 13 at the time they murdered four girls and a teacher. Perpetrators who survive a massacre should be fairly tried, and after conviction and a two or three year (not 20 or 30 year) appeal process, publicly hanged. This is certainly not contrary to Christian mercy and compassion, as the recent popes of Rome have been teaching. Repentant criminals can save their eternal souls while awaiting excution, but God requires the capital punishment of killers here on earth.
We have fled from God’s Law in our prideful estimation of our own brain power and intoxication with scientism. Millions of Americans believe science has replaced the Bible. From this apostasy a spirit of lawlessness inevitably results. God’s law on debt has also been abandoned — on no other basis than situation ethics fueled by the love of money — which is the root of all of the evil that confronts us.
Our prayers are with the innocent victims this day in Connecticut, and their loved ones, as well as the innocent victims every day of the year who are killed in American abortion clinics, with no one to mourn for them except the God who proclaimed, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you” (Jeremiah 1:5).
Are you listening, America?

Psalm 81:10-16 (NIV) The simple truth that is almost universally ignored…
… I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. “But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. “If my people would but listen to me, if Israel would follow my ways, how quickly would I subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes! Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever. But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
