Indictment. A written accusation charging that an individual named therein has committed an act or omitted to do something that is punishable by law.
I’m grieved and about nauseated as I write this. I don’t expect a lot of “shares” on Facebook and, in fact, some will simply read the headline underneath the picture (below) and delete the post. Believe me, I understand. What is being revealed is truly horrifying. But if we avoid the story, why do we tolerate the reality?
Geoff Grider has posted an article (link below) describing the latest Planned Parenthood exposé video. The source article is here:
I have not viewed the video; Geoff’s story is sufficiently horrifying.
I believe these videos (seven so far) are a seven-point indictment by God to America. We in the eschatosphere are distracted by the anticipated events of September and “Jesus-must-be-coming-soon-goody-goody!“, but God is also JUST and I seriously doubt that we in the church will get a pass. This is happening on our watch, and most of us (even the “Bible-believing evangelicals”) did little to nothing to prevent it; indeed, many of us participated in it.
If we still think God is a sugar daddy who is going to ignore our crimes against our fellowmen because we said a little prayer once, or got baptized, or what-ever, then I think we’re in for a terrifying awakening. Babies were and are being murdered. We have not objected or resisted, nor have we (most of us) warned those with the knives that they are under God’s wrath unless they repent.
This season of Elul is, I believe, America’s last opportunity to turn from her wicked ways. In view of Obergefell and the manifest “ho-hum, I wonder what’s on TV” response by most people, I think America will blow it one more time, and I think America will be destroyed. But we slumber on, or we’re so busy squabbling among ourselves whether pre-trib or post-trib is correct, that we neglect what God is saying to us. He is about to turn up the volume.
Do we REALLY think God doesn’t care? What is wrong with us?

The Shortest Sermon Ever Preached August 18, 2015Posted by stevekerp in Current Events, End Times, Harbingers.

ON (or probably very close to) THIS DAY IN HISTORY: Jonah began his trek through the city of Nineveh, proclaiming “In 40 days, Nineveh will be destroyed.” This was probably the shortest sermon ever preached, but the people believed and repented, and Nineveh was spared.
What about us? We in the U.S. are certainly an overqualified people who have sinned against God by persistent unfaithfulness (Ezekiel 14:13), and are over-ripe for judgment. As a nation, we have hardened our hearts and stiffened our necks against God and His word. Even the so-called “Christians” in this land are, by and large, satisfied to try to placate God with a Sunday ritual, while otherwise ignoring Him. How much time in prayer, Bible study, and Christian fellowship? How much time watching TV? With what do we fill our minds on Saturday night before “going to church” on Sunday morning? Are we really fooling God? Or just ourselves??
Don’t be put off by the judgmental tone of this post. I’m not enjoying this either. But we may have just FORTY DAYS to repent, before God Himself displays His righteous wrath against this land.
In the following article, Michael Snyder lists events that are already planned for September: 10 Things That Are Going To Happen Within 15 Days Of The End Of The Shemitah. He summarizes his conclusions:
As a nation, we have unapologetically embraced evil. We are extremely proud, arrogant, greedy and cold-hearted. I do not believe that there is any hope for our nation unless we are shaken to our core.
I am fully convinced that the months ahead are going to dramatically change life in America, but whether it happens right now or not, I am 100 percent convinced that a great shaking is coming to this nation at some point.
I share his concern. Clearly, significant change in the global village is being planned and implemented. More importantly, there are some compelling reasons to believe that God is about to intervene powerfully in human history. Jonah has a message for us. Are we listening?
Trivializing Christ December 9, 2014Posted by stevekerp in Christian living, Church, Harbingers.

I challenge our paganized “Christmas” season every year. As you probably know, most of the symbols and traditions come from ancient Babylon, and even the Christmas story (including the date) that many Christians embrace is full of errors.
But the real problem I have – traditions aside – is what Christmas, in fact, IS today. If Christmas really were a Christ-exalting season and people really came face-to-face with Jesus, should we not expect that every December would be a season of spiritual revival? Why is it, rather, a season of depression, hostility, financial irresponsibility, and over-indulgence?
And while it’s as easy for unbelievers to ignore Christ during this season as it is at any other time, why is it that among the professing Christian community, the claims of Christ and the knowledge that God has come to us does not produce deep repentance, or revival, or grief over our sin, or a renewed commitment to Christ and holy living?
Obviously it does not. The passion and focus of the Christian community toward godliness seems no more intense in December and January than it does at any other time of the year. Maybe with all the trees and tinsel and gift-giving and carol-singing, we are simply relegating what’s really important to the “back burner.” And perhaps because we do, Christmas has really become a time when we trivialize what’s important and insult Christ instead of honoring Him.
With Crimean Crisis, Haaretz ‘Gets It’ June 15, 2014Posted by stevekerp in End Times, Harbingers, Uncategorized.

What follows is not from some fundamental Christian web site or kook blog or anything. It’s from the mainstream Haaretz Jewish web site, They are the ones suggesting that the events in Crimea and Ukraine are explicit Biblical (Book of Ezekiel – their Bible is our Old Testament) harbingers. THEY are the ones suggesting that the Messiah is coming very, very soon!
If you’re a Christian, the fun is just beginning: An army of “200 million” men will come from the East, according the Book of Revelations [sic], and there’s only one country that can raise such an army. Then, in quick succession but in a sequence that is disputed by scholars, the End Times really get going: Armageddon, Desolation, Tribulation, Rapture, Redemption, the Second Coming – the works.
Jews, by the way, make do with just the war of Gog and Magog, after which messianic days are here and “swords are beaten into ploughshares” etc. Nonetheless, Christians aren’t the only ones who are getting excited about the standoff in Eastern Europe. According to a report catching fire over the weekend in the haredi press in Israel, the Gaon Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch told his disciples this week that the times of the Messiah are upon us. And who is the source for his amazing analysis? None other than one of the top Jewish sages of all time, the Vilna Gaon himself, the Gra, “the genius of Vilnius”, the famously harsh critic of Hasidic Judaism.

So, for those of you who may think those of us urging preparation for the return of Christ have spent too much time in the eschatosphere and not enough time in the real world …. well, it looks like Chemi Shalev and maybe a few others in Israel have joined us.
Jesus is coming soon! YOU will see Him face-to-face! Are You Ready??

Brace For Shock … October 23, 2010Posted by stevekerp in Current Events, End Times, Harbingers.
It may have been more than coincidental that questions concerning the confirmation of the covenant were part of the discussion this past Wednesday, which on the Hebrew calendar was 12 Cheshvan. The pre-trib community has by-and-large accepted the idea that Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled when “The Antichrist” confirms a peace covenant or treaty with Israel, affording the Jews peace and safety and an opportunity to rebuild the temple.
However, as discussed, the antecedent of “he” in this verse appears to point to the Messiah (verse 26) rather than to the “prince” in the clause modifying the reference to the people who would destroy the city and the sanctuary.
And now — suddenly — that very covenant that may be in view is being challenged by no less than the Vatican. While we on the forum were considering this prophecy, the Pope and a synod of bishops from the middle east were preparing their final statement culminating a two-week series of meetings. The statement, delivered earlier today, asserted that the Biblical concept of the ‘promised land’ cannot be used to justify “the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians.”
According to ynetnews.com:
Greek-Melchite Archbishop Cyrille Salim Bustros, said:
‘We Christians cannot speak about the promised land for the Jewish people. There is no longer a chosen people. All men and women of all countries have become the chosen people.
‘The concept of the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians,’ he added. ‘The justification of Israel’s occupation of the land of Palestine cannot be based on sacred scriptures.’
Just days before his assassination on November 4, 1995, Yitzhak Rabin articulated a similar belief – that the Bible was not Israel’s title deed to the land. Rabin was a signer of the Oslo Peace Accords, which is often cited as the “covenant” which will be confirmed at the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week. However, this arrangement is not a covenant. (Note: Mr. Rabin died on the evening of 12 Cheshvan.)
The land covenant between God and the Jews is now on the table. As discussed on Wednesday last, I believe a very convincing “confirmation” would be something along the lines of Psalm 83. I cannot think of a more convincing way for the enemies of God to throw down a gauntlet. I believe we will soon see God’s response.
