John 16:1-3 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

I had a hard time sleeping last night. I had weird dreams and flashbacks to my days in the Airborne.

See, I usually start mulling things over in my head on Friday which I am going to write about on Monday’s PZ Insider Report.

By Sunday I have a good direction where I believe the Lord is leading me to write.

God decided to take a detour and I tossed and turned a lot last night.

I can’t put a finger on it, but my dreams were to say the least, uncomfortable.

It was during the night that an idea was impressed upon me to write about in today’s PZ Insider Report.

What I am about to write is not a warm and fuzzy message. In fact it is daunting to say the least.

A Watchman’s Lunch

This weekend we got to spend some time with our friends and fellow watchmen. We had a wonderful time and it gave us a chance to catch up on what we are all doing.

One thing led to another and we got to events that are taking place in the US.

“So what do you know?” one person asked.

The main topic was what was happening to the military and the meetings at the pentagon. Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation was asked to come in and advice regarding Christians in the military.

Weinstein stated “Christians within the military who speak of their faith could now be prosecuted as enemies of the state.”

Atheist Military Organization Asks Pentagon to Court Martial Superiors Who Share Faith With Troops

May 1, 2013 | By: Heather Clark

101-army-chaplinAlbuquerque, New Mexico – An atheist organization that seeks freedom from religion in the military is asking officials at the Pentagon to court martial any Armed Forces superior who “promote[s] their personal religious beliefs to their subordinates” or “extend[s] preferential treatment for any religion.”

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, led by Mikey Weinstein, recently told reporter Todd Starnes that he wants to end proselytization on military bases, and compared evangelistic activity to rape.

“Someone needs to be punished for this,” he said. “Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.”

“It is a version of being spiritually raped and you are being spiritually raped by fundamentalist Christian religious predators,” Weinstein asserted. “As soon as we find a fundamentalist Muslim, atheist, Jewish person or anybody else, we will be happy to fight them, but so far they have been few and far between.”

Starnes reports that Weinstein met with Pentagon officials on April 23rd in an effort to urge them to enforce current laws, which require military superiors to “balance constitutional protections for an individual’s free exercise of religion or other personal beliefs and the constitutional prohibition against governmental establishment of religion.”

“If a member of the military is proselytizing in a manner that violates the law, well then of course they can be prosecuted,” he stated. “We would love to see hundreds of prosecutions to stop this outrage of fundamentalist religious persecution.”

Weinstein said that to promote one’s religion in the Armed Forces is “sedition” and “treason” and should be stopped.

The Pentagon confirmed that proselytization is not permitted on military bases.

“Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense,” spokesperson Nate Christensen stated. “Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the outcome in specific cases.”

While punishments may vary, those who are court martialed can either face jail time or, at worst, be dishonorably discharged.

In response to Weinstein, Family Research Council has launched a petition drive to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to urge him to protect the free exercise of religion.

“Reports indicate that senior Pentagon officials have recently consulted with radical secularists to formulate a policy that would put military chaplains and other leaders who ‘promote their personal religious beliefs to their subordinates or to extend preferential treatment for any religion’ in danger of court-martial,” the petition states. “Subverting the religious freedom of our troops both hurts the morale of our troops and puts our nation at risk by labeling courageous military personnel as enemies.”

“I urge you to resist the demands of anti-Christian activists who are calling for a court-martial order upon chaplains and service members who share their faith,” it continues. “If Christian chaplains and other troops are censored from offering the full solace of the Gospel, there is no religious freedom in the military.”

As of press time, over 67,000 signatures have been received.

“The very troops who defend our religious freedom are at risk of having their own taken away,” the Washington-based organization lamented. “If this policy goes forward, Christians within the military who speak of their faith could now be prosecuted as enemies of the state. … Our brave troops deserve better.” (1)

It is rumored that recently that a major government agency drummed out many Christians within its organization utilizing a contract change. From what I understand a lot of Bible believing Christians could not agree with the new contract.

The result, many choose to willingly separate themselves from that organization.

Now, I have not seen any copies of the contract, but I have heard from some reliable folks about this action.

Why would people leave a pretty good job that has good benefits and all the government perks?

All of us sitting at that lunch table knew of someone who used to work for this organization and who also chose to separate from the organization.

One of my friends then put the following out to the table…

“ We all know that there are in fact FEMA camps. Last count was around 825 all over the country. Out of all the people groups, who do you think will be the first to be detainees?”

We all sat and thought about it for a moment.

101-no christiansI said “It will most likely be Bible believing Christians who truly understand the biblical freedoms our country is destroying. Vocal Christians like Chuck Baldwin and others like him. People who have a voice and have no problem speaking up.”

Everyone sitting there agreed.

I then took the issue further and said that it will be C.I.N.O.s (Christians In Name Only) that will give the Judas kiss to those Bible believing Christians that they know.

They might do if for some extra food, (food is becoming a shortage) or some job or higher position.

I then referenced John 16:1-3…

John 16:1-3 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Folks, we who stand on God’s Word are in the minority. Those of us who are truly His children.

Millions of Christians? – NOT

I listen to a lot of my fellow Bible prophecy teachers talking about how planes will crash and accidents on the freeway when the rapture takes place.

Sorry, I can’t buy it.

I have talked to several of my friends in ministry and have asked them. “How many real Bible believing Christians do you think are really out there?”

The answer that I get is always the same… “not many left.”

To put a number on it I have had several people tell me that maybe 1 Million, maybe 2 Million and that is pushing the envelope.

No matter what, 2 million are not that many.

If we take 2 million true Bible believing Christians and divide that into say 800 FEMA camps, which comes to about 2500 believers per camp.

Add to that political right wing dissidents, criminals and other unwanted malcontents and it may add up to about 5000 per camp.

Germany had an estimated 20,000 camps all over Europe. 11,000,000 people died in these camps, 6 million of which were Jews. You divide that and you come up with 550 prisoners per camp.

So looking at 2500 to 5000 people per camp is a very feasible amount.

Let’s look back at those verses in John,..

John 16:1-3 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Verse 1 – Christ is warning us here and telling us that we should not be surprised when the event He is speaking about comes to pass.

What is that event?

Verse 2 – “They” those who think they are doing God a favor will kill us, imprison us, and persecute us. These people see it as their patriotic duty to do this to us.

101-patriot-naziIn fact, can you guess the most patriotic country in the last 100 years?

It was Nazi Germany and patriotism is what Hitler used to rally the German people to his cause.

See, during that time the people were down trodden and looking for anything to boost their moral. In comes Hitler talking about the return of German pride and the people bought into it hook, line and sinker.

Those who will persecute us will feel the same way. They will persecute us thinking they are doing it for “God and Country.”

Now here is an interesting thing that Christ states.

Verse 3 – He says that the people who persecute us will do so because they have NOT known the father or Christ.

Folks, right there in black and white Christ is telling us that in the last days there will not be millions upon millions of Christians.

We see Christ state the same thing earlier in Matthew 7…

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Did you catch that in verse 14? … “Few There Be That Find It.”

We who truly stand with God and with His Word, we are the minority.

George Barna showed a few years ago that only 6% of the US stands on a biblical worldview.

He asked the following questions…

  • Do absolute moral truths exist?
  • Is absolute truth defined by the Bible?
  • Did Jesus Christ live a sinless life?
  • Is God the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe, and does He still rule it today?
  • Is salvation a gift from God that cannot be earned?
  • Is Satan real?
  • Does a Christian have a responsibility to share his or her faith in Christ with other people?
  • Is the Bible accurate in all of its teachings?

Did you answer yes to these? Do you know that only 9 percent of “born- again” believers did? (2)

Knowing that only 6% of the people polled answered yes to these questions should tell you something. That something is that 94% of the people did not agree with these and said “NO” even those who claimed the title “born again.”

Are you realizing the gravity of the situation?

We as Bible believing Christians are in fact being vilified. The US Military is basically forcing Christians out just like another US government organization did.

Now they will not come out and plainly say it, they will just make it so hard that a true Bible believing Christian will have to make a choice, God or Military.

These are the same sort of steps that Hitler took in pre-WW II Germany. This is how he got Jews out of government service and out of the military.

The next step was to vilify Jewish businesses, and that is already starting to take place here in the US as well.

Court: Christians can be ordered to violate beliefs

Refuse to photograph lesbians, get fined $7,000

A ruling from Judge Tim L. Garcia in the New Mexico Court of Appeals says states can require Christians to violate their faith in order to do business, affirming a penalty of nearly $7,000 for a photographer who refused to take pictures at a lesbian “commitment” ceremony in the state where same-sex “marriage” was illegal. (3)

Here is a more recent example just reported back in early April of this year.

Elderly Christian florist faces thousands in fines for refusing to provide flowers for gay ‘wedding’

by Ben Johnson – Wed Apr 10, 2013 17:21 EST

101-barronelleOLYMPIA, WA, April 10, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Christian florist in Washington state could be slapped with hefty fines because she refused to provide a floral arrangement for a gay “wedding.”

Barronelle Stutzman is facing thousands of dollars in fines.

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed charges today in Benton County Superior Court.

On March 1 Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene’s Flowers and Gifts in Richland, refused to sell flowers to Robert Ingersoll for his “marriage” to Curt Freed.

“He said he decided to get married, and before he got through I grabbed his hand and said, ‘I am sorry. I can’t do your wedding because of my relationship with Jesus Christ,’” Stutzman said. She said it was the only wedding she had declined in 37 years. (4)

I am a watchman and at times I know that I am not a popular person nor is my message at times popular.

I could not sleep much because of this message that I believe God wants me to share. Look at history, man is repeating it this very minute.

Do you want to know what “camp life” will be like?

Here is a firsthand account…

What Was The Daily Routine in Nazi Concentration Camps?

4 a.m.: Awakening

101-nazi-at-large-4You are awakened by the kapo (fellow inmate appointed to special duties by the Nazis) barking at you. Hurry up! You must raise, find your shoes (but maybe somebody stole them which often means death because you’ll not be able to work) and start as soon as possible the “bettenbau”. From the shapeless straw mattress you’ll have to make a perfect bed in a military manner, with blankets made up exactly over the straw mattress. Of course, this is nearly impossible to do and the kapo knows it. The “bettenbau” is just a good opportunity for him to beat the prisoners. In Auschwitz-Birkenau, there is no such ‘bettenbau’ as the beds are just tall wooden shelves.

The bed is made now, and it is time for washing. You run out of the barrack and try to reach the sanitary facility. There are only a couple of sanitary facilities for hundreds of prisoners, and you are under constant threat of the Nazis suddenly deciding to liquidate you. They would switch signs on the washroom and gas chamber door, or they would turn on poison gas instead of water in the showers. You have just a couple of minutes for washing, and the water arbitrarily switches between boiling hot and freezing cold. It is nearly time for the morning roll call, and you know the kapos will beat the stragglers, sometimes to death.

The “Breakfast”:

You must have your mess-tin in hand. No mess-tin, no food. A kapo gives you approximately 10 ounces of bread and some “coffee” [see note, end of page]. Sometimes, if you are lucky, you’ll receive some margarine or a thin slice of sausage with your bread. The “coffee” is tasteless. No sugar and no milk, of course. The bread you just received will be the only solid food you’ll receive until tomorrow. If you have strength of will, you’ll try to spare it for the rest of the day. The distribution of food is once again a good opportunity for the kapos to have some “fun”. Sometimes they throw the bread in the mud, or they push you while serving the coffee, wasting it on the ground. In any case, you’ll receive nothing more, and you are risking punishment for wasting food. If you are very strong, you can save your bread rations for a few days and trade them to the local ‘black market’ run by inmates with ‘ins’.

Morning Roll Call:

All the prisoners are lined up in rows of ten on a huge bare space in the center of camp called the Appellplatz. All the prisoners must be at the roll call, including the ones who died during the night. There, poor bodies are aligned in front of you or in front of your barrack. Under control of the SS guards and officers, the kapos led by the Blockalteste (in charge of your barracks) are counting the thousands of prisoners. A mistake during the counting and everything must start again, making the kapos nervous and dangerous. During the roll call, you must stand at attention, even if it is raining or snowing. It is forbidden to move or to talk during the roll call. Your poor striped uniform, made from an incredibly rough cloth, does not protect you against the cold weather. Every day, several prisoners catch cold during the roll call and die in the following days. Some others die during the roll call itself. They were too weak to stand at attention during hours. Their bodies, as well as the deaths of the night, will be sent to the crematories after the roll call.

101-nazi-campMove Off of the Appellplatz:

You run to join your work team. You’ll leave the camp under the heavy guard of SS and kapos, always barking at you. You’ll reach the yard by walk of course. Maybe you’ll have to march off to the beat of the music played by the camp orchestra. Just at the gate of the camp, there is a row of SS waiting for your work team. Beatings, insults, barking again and again…

The Work:

If you are lucky, you have received a good tool, a shovel or a pickax. Otherwise, you’ll have to work with your hands… and this may mean death because you’ll not be able to work as fast as the guards request. The day will be long: 12-14 hours of work. The work is very hard, and often useless: to move heavy sand bags from one point to another, to extract and carry heavy stones, to dig trenches or to bore a tunnel. When it is obviously pointless and there is also bad weather such as rainstorms or hail, Kapos will be extra angry because they have to stand out there as well. Maybe you are working in a factory but this does not improve your condition of life, unless you are in a labor camp in which case the SS only patrol the factories, they don’t stay there. Germans had the prisoners work in factories for the good of the war; creating ammunition (SS stayed here) or clothing for the Nazi soldiers. This is extermination by work. Everything has to be done as fast as possible, and always with insults and beatings from the kapos and the SS. If a guard thinks you are not working fast enough, you’ll be beat up, maybe until you die. Don’t even think about stopping for a while or even slowing down. It will be considered as sabotage and this means death.

The Afternoon:

101-nazi.480Slight break at noon, then the work starts again, always at inferno. The afternoon seems harder because you are hungry and you feel you are losing strength. A prisoner faints and the guards beat him up. If this poor wo/man can’t rise, s/he’ll be killed and you’ll have to bring his/her poor body back to the camp, for the evening roll call.

Return to the Camp:

A last signaling whistle: your work team walks back to the camp, and the survivors are carrying bodies of the prisoners who died today. Once arrived in the camp, the SS are controlling your team. It’s a new opportunity for them to beat, to kill.

Evening Roll Call:

All the prisoners are lined up by rows of ten. The kapos are counting the prisoners and the dead. If a prisoner tried to escape, all the prisoners will stand at attention at their roll-call place until he is retrieved. The evening roll call takes hours, sometimes even 10 hours, before it is over. The evening roll call is also the moment chosen by the SS for the punishments and the hangings. Sometimes, after a hanging, all the prisoners have to march in front of the gallows to look at the hanged prisoner, as a warning.

The Dinner:

The evening roll call is over. You run in order to receive your “dinner”: a kind of “soup” (usually dishwater heated up), just like the one you received at noon. If you spared some bread, you may eat it now, with the soup. Once again, the distribution of food is an opportunity for the kapos to beat the prisoners. Some prisoners will figure out when each barracks eats dinner and get in line for several, obtaining extra rations. The kapos come and interrupt dinner, shouting “Blocksperre!’. Time to go to the barracks.

The Evening:

You return to your barrack. In no way you are allowed to leave the barrack during the night. The Blockalteste (head of the barracks) is waiting for you and your comrades. The Blockaltestes are Kapos and sometimes wear green triangles, which means “real criminals”, because they got special treatment since they weren’t as “bad” as the Jews. They have the right to decide who’ll live and who’ll die. Maybe he/she will let you rest until tomorrow morning. But, maybe she’ll/he’ll decide to have some “fun”–to order exercises like crawling, jumping, running until you faint. They check to make sure everyone is in bed and no one has serious diseases like typhus- which will have to be reported. Some Blockaltestes are kind and bond with their barracks, even be sad if their block is liquidated. But they are still hated by the other inmates for their privileges. Eventually, you are allowed to lie down on your straw-mattress or shelving unit. You are ten or fifteen per shelf. The barrack is not heated and there are holes in the wooden sides. If a prisoner wants to turn over in bed, all the others have to follow. You are exhausted. Sometimes, roll call is so long that you will only get two or three hours of sleep before the next day. Today, you managed to survive. (5)

101-nazi-dinner

Folks, I am going to be blatantly honest and say that I do not believe that God is going to come down and rapture us out when the problems we have are mainly due to our own laziness and complacency.

Yes, We are where we are as a nation because we as Christians stopped occupying Till He Returns.

We have allowed the enemy the high ground and our nation has been in utter rebellion to the point that our nation is now at war against God.

My friend David Regan wrote an incredible article titled “Has Our Nation Reached The Trigger Point?

I have included this article and a great article titled FLEE by my good friend John Price and my dear friend Berit Kjos, All of these are included in this special issue of The PZ Insider Report. READ THEM.

You may not agree with the fine points in these articles, but you cannot dismiss that God is in fact judging this nation and has been judging this nation now for over 10 years now. All the time trying to get our attention.

Heed the message of these watchmen.

We as God’s people have done nothing and ignored the warnings and His shakings.

This is why I say that I do not see some escape from our deeds with God rapturing us out.

Therefore judgment will start with us.

Scripture says…

1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Listen, I am not a prophet or a son of a prophet. I am a watchman on the wall and all I can do is sound the alarm of what I see coming.

Many of you have seen the writing on the wall as well and know that what I am saying is true.

I cannot tell you what to do. All I can do is advise that if you have not started to prepare for hard times, then you need to start today, this very minute.

I also cannot tell you flee from this coming persecution, if God has been prodding you to do so, then my advice is to be obedient to Him and know that He will provide a way for you.

It may not be comfortable or what you will like, but you will be living in His obedience and His Will if you heed His warning and His calling.

If you do not know what to do, my advice is that you literally get down on your knees, both you are your spouse and unite in prayer.

There is power when a Godly couple comes together in prayer. I believe that if you commit to this that God will show you the direction He wants in your life. What you will have to choose is do you choose obedience to Him or go with what you know and try to tough it out on your own.

I can say this that if you choose the later, you will not make it. You will be running from God and what He has in store for you.

Look at Jonah, if you run from God’s calling He will get your attention. The consequence of that may be paying the ultimate price.

Scripture says…

1 Peter 4:16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

I believe those who run and then finally return to God’s obedience bit they will pay the same price that Samson paid.

Judges 16:25-30 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.

26 And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them.

27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.

28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.

30 And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.

Again, that maybe leaving or that may be staying, I cannot tell you one way or another, only God will give you the peace that only He can give regarding the direction you are to go.

But know that God is judging this nation and we need to ask ourselves if we are truly called to stand in the way of that judgment?

I believe that we are living in a time where God will use those who have said “Here am I, Send Me.”

This is what Tracye and I prayed for some time. We looked and looked until finally God opened the doors for us here.

We believe that one of our missions here in Costa Rica is to help people who are called out as well as help those who are called to stay.

God has given both of us special talents and capabilities that can help both those called to exodus and those called to stay.

If we can help with any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
