Getting Down to Brass Tacks :: By Donna Wasson

OK, here’s the thing. I don’t know how many more of these articles I’ll be able to write before we’re snatched off this garbage repository of a planet, so I don’t have time to get distracted by all the cow patties flying past my face on a daily basis. Time is running out, and I need to keep yelling out the warning that things on this earth are about to change forever. Business as usual is over folks, so you might as well snap out of your lethargy and wake up!

So, where’s the fire, you ask? Hmm, well let’s see. If you pay attention at all to the news, you’ll find out that Russia has acted against the request of Israel and the United States, and has delivered the first load of S-300 long range antiaircraft missiles, capable of shooting down commercial airliners over Tel Aviv, as well as IDF fighter jets in Israeli airspace.

This is obviously a direct threat to the safety of Israel. Assad is expecting another shipment of the missiles from Russia, and has explicitly warned Israel to stay away from them. The Syrian foreign minister stated on Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen TV, that Damascus “will retaliate immediately” if Israel strikes Syria again.

The White House Spokes-moron, Jay Carney brilliantly observed that Russia providing these dangerous missiles to Syria “does not bring the country any closer to the desired political transition.” Israeli Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon said earlier this week, that if the missiles were delivered, Israel will “know what to do.”

It’s ON, people! Damascus is officially nuke-bait, as predicted a bazillion years ago in Isaiah 17: 1 “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” That same chapter predicts the fate of the surrounding nations that attack Israel.

Isaiah 17: 12-14 “Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters, but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.”

There is a major war predicted in Psalm 83, in which the nations that immediately surround Israel will attack her, and they WILL be defeated with the great assistance of Almighty God. It will be yet ANOTHER humiliating defeat for Islam and their fake moon god who cannot hear, or see, or think, or talk, nor can he save them. Maybe when they get a holy heiny kicking this time, despite overwhelming odds in their favor, they’ll get the message that all that devotion, all the sacrifices, all the martyrdom perpetrated in the name of allah, was a complete and total waste. A-W-K-W-A-R-D….

Then we have the supposedly infallible Pope spouting nonsense about how good works will get you into the kingdom of God, even if you’re an atheist. Contrary to Vatican backpedaling,

Francis clearly stated “The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us. ‘But Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.’ Yes, he can…The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father. I am an atheist.’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

Good going, Francis! You, who have supposedly studied the Bible for years; who is the spiritual leader of 1.2 billion people, stated something this heretical? But, you’re holy and infallible! What happened? Did you get into the communion wine again?

Yes, Jesus DID die and shed His blood to redeem ALL of us, even atheists. However, a person has to recognize his moral depravity and need for salvation. He must understand there is NOTHING he can do to earn God’s acceptance, therefore he must repent of his sins and accept the death pardon purchased by the Son of God on the cross. “Doing good” ain’t gonna cut it when you’re standing in front of the Great White Throne, being judged by a mighty, holy, just God.

There are only three reasons I can think of that could cause the Pope would teach something this false. He has undiagnosed dementia; that beanie he wears on his head is too tight, making him dumber than a brick, or he’s LYING to gain adoration and acceptance. Take your pick. Disgusting! These are NOT the days to be teaching falsehoods regarding salvation.

I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised. The Bible clearly tells us that in the last days, the wolves in sheep’s clothing would creep into the church and preach things that tickle the ears of the congregation, rather than the truth. To any Catholic who might read this, please listen up. The following is directly from Saint Paul.

Galatians 1: 6-9 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If ANY MAN preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

Your ‘holy Father’ is neither holy, nor is he your father. Almighty GOD, Creator of heaven and earth is your Father, and salvation is found in none other than Christ alone. Not through Mary. Not the Saints. Not even the sacraments the church concocted for you to follow so you can earn favor with God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 Paul again teaches, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast.”

Read your Bible yourself. You’ll notice that a vast majority of the teaching of the RCC is not in there! Don’t be some dumb sheep, happily following along after some false shepherd, believing everything he says because the church insists he’s infallible. He IS capable of being wrong and he is teaching lies, and there’s your proof. His own Vatican spokespeople have had to come out and try to explain away what he so plainly said. Wake up!

On another front, the White House occupant seems to have gotten himself into quite a few tight spots here. And what do Presidents historically pull when they are caught with their pants down? Speaking of which, let’s revisit Bill Clinton. When the Monica Lewinsky, lying under oath situation captured the country’s attention, and the “I” word was being bandied about, Clinton ordered the bombing of a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in Khartoum, despite knowing it was NOT, in fact, a chemical weapons plant.

That little political move was named, ‘Wag the Dog’ and destroyed a 32 million dollar building, injuring 10 people, 5 of them seriously. But it got the American public’s attention off of that blue dress for a couple of weeks. So, I have to wonder what ‘Wag the Dog’ scenario is being dreamed up by BO’s mommy, Valerie Jarrett, to cover his behind.

This occupant has been a dismal failure in the foreign policy department. He supplied weapons and support to Islamic rebels so they could oust long-time Middle Eastern leaders, with the supposed goal of helping those countries achieve a democratic form of government. And what did the American taxpayers get for their money? A Middle East full of emboldened Islamic rabid dog leaders, who want nothing more than to annihilate Israel, conquer America and institute Sharia law. Hey, I don’t look good in a burqua, so bite it!

The Federal Government has ballooned during this administration, trying to wriggle its tyrannical, slimy fingers into every aspect of our private lives. Obamacare will ruin this nation financially when it is fully instituted in 2014. Even the greasy labor unions are seeing they aren’t the administration’s lap dogs after all, when they found out they’re not exempt from the socialist rules of the legislation. They’re whining like babies now that the chickens have come home to roost. Hey, you wanted him—you GOT him, you fools!

Our national borders are open to every Ricardo, Paco and even Mohammad who decides to jump the fence, regardless of criminal history. And, while ignoring our outrage, our government welcomes them with open arms, as they dip again and again into our wallets to pay for their healthcare, education, housing, food while writing out tax refund checks worth thousands to support children still living in Mexico. Does the taxpayer have a say? Obviously not, because Congress no longer represents us.

The economy is in the tank. Gas prices are in the upper three dollar range and jobs are pretty much nowhere to be found. The feds are trying their best to institute The Common Core State Standards in our public schools, which is little more than communist indoctrination, including the complete acceptance of ‘alternative lifestyles.’ If each state doesn’t stand up and tell Washington where to get off, this outrageous overreach by the federal government will even be forced upon private schools and kids being home schooled!

We are being systematically locked into a surveillance state, and the feds are positively glowing with joy over the nearly completed, monstrosity called the NSA Utah Data Center. This center has a supercomputer called, Titan which can handle more than 20 TRILLION calculations per second. The entire facility is designed to spy on American’s private lives, all in the name of that every present ‘boogey man,’ War of Terror. The taxpayers paid 1.5 billion dollars for this million square foot facility, which could very well make our lives a living hell. <>

Actually, what it will do is allow the antichrist to gain and retain absolute control over every man, woman and child in this country. They’ll look at and store your emails, phone calls, banking records, medical history, political views, religious affiliations, so the jack-booted thugs can easily track down who’s a Christian or Jew, to facilitate transport to the FEMA resorts for re-education or termination. You think I’m kidding? I’m not.

As we’ve seen on the news, this thing isn’t even up and running yet, and the feds have already been caught targeting conservatives, Christian organizations, and constitution advocates for IRS harassment. They hack into personal emails and phone calls anytime they please, for whatever reason they can think up. And they’ve passed legislation to install black box data recorders on new cars, starting 2015. They’ll keep intruding on your life and privacy until they end up sending an FBI agent to sit on the side of your tub, to watch you when you go to the bathroom!

Mother Nature has gone mad. Massive flooding. Droughts. Unusually cold winters, with 30 inches of snow falling on Upstate New York on Memorial Day! Volcanoes are erupting all over the world. Tornadoes are tearing up thousands of people’s homes and lives, and they just keep coming and coming. Sinkholes are opening up all over the place. A massive heat wave in Australia verses a huge snowstorm in the Middle East! It’s crazy.

Look, like I said at the beginning of this piece, the signs of the return of Jesus for His Bride are screaming at us from all sides, yet so many of you are like dumb, sleepy sheep, standing around contentedly chewing your cud, while the world falls apart all around you. The economies of Europe are in tatters, and Japan is about to crash from what I’m reading. It’s coming to America, you can bet on it, but there you stand…dum-de-dum, chew, chew, chew. Baaaaah!

Signs are ripe for things to explode into action all over this earth, leading to the rapture and the start of the tribulation nightmare. Are you ready spiritually to face whatever might occur with peace and calm assurance in your heart? When’s the last time you spent time alone with the Lord, in prayer and repentance?

Or have you been too busy dealing with Susie’s dance recital and Michael’s soccer game? Are you caught up with the things of this world, with your eyes looking SO forward to that new car or the house you’re about to close on? Are you content to sit in your cushy pew every Sunday, looking around at who’s there, wearing what dress, while you put your in your time to keep God happy?

Time is just about up, folks. I have my own theories about what is coming, and it ain’t pretty. Now, you might think I’m an alarmist loon, but I’m paying attention to the signs of the times, and they are telling me that I’m going home very soon. I’m so ready!! I can hardly wait to leave this place!

What about you? What about your family? Are you giving ANY thought to the fact that some will be left behind? I strongly suggest you turn off reality TV and get on your knees. Get your heart prepared and like Jesus instructed in Luke 21: 34-36, “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

Maranatha, Lord Jesus!!
