I saw this posted at Lighthouse Trails Blog and thought it was important to post here:

From Jewish believer and radio host Jan Markell

"You may not read about some of these stories. They are not obscure, just overlooked and to many, not noteworthy. However, I consider them to be some of the most significant stories of 2006.

• Israel lost a war last summer, with Hezbollah, proving she has the worst government in her 58 year history.

• Mike Wallace said that Iran's Ahmadinejad is a man we can do business with and is really quite likable. The Left is deluded that such a "messianic menace" as Ahmadinejad has good traits when he wants to destroy parts of the free world including America and Israel.

• My home state's Sen. Keith Ellison (D-MN) is the first Muslim to get elected to high office. He will take his oath on the Koran. He is a pawn of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an organization in America to make all Muslims look good.

• Christian censorship of the truth happened as Hal Lindsey and Zola Levitt Ministries were let go by Trinity Broadcasting Network for their pro-Israel stance and perceived lack of tolerance for Islam.

• The "Emergent Church" went from obscurity to prominence and is called "evangelical" by those who should know better. Emergent denies many of the essentials of the faith and relies on the touchy-feely gospel with candles, incense, and even rosary beads for Protestants. They consider homosexuals "Christians" if they claim to be.

• So-called evangelicals said this year that man-made global warming must become the primary issue for evangelicals along with other social gospel issues. This from the organization known as the "Evangelical Environmental Network," a collection of social gospel leaders parading as evangelicals. A 2006 conclusion is that the word "evangelical" today means nothing.

• Iran had a Holocaust Denial Conference with 30 nations in attendance. It confirms that anti-Semitism is spiraling out of control. As Israel's Netanyahu says, "It's 1938 all over again."

• The effort to "sanctify divination" in the church continues with the promotion of so-called "Christian Yoga," contemplative prayer, walking the labyrinth, and other practices that when blanking out the mind to get "closer to God" can actually lead to spiritual tragedy. In 2006 we saw these and many other practices gain international respect. Some critics say that 2006 was the year of "treason in the church."

• The belief that Islam can be tamed and appeased and then they will like us and even forsake Sharia Law for democracy has to be the delusion of 2006 or even the 21st century.

• This mantra will not go away and picked up in 2006: The creation of a Palestinian State will help bring about world peace. Why? This is promoted by the U.N., the E.U., the State Department, the Vatican, the White House, and every Arab capital of the world. President Bush now states he wishes to see a Palestinian State by sometime in 2007. Conditions apply that don't make it a likely possibility.

• A once-obscure Sen. Barack Obama has taken the country by storm. Will he take the church by storm? Claiming to be a Christian, he is the most far-left Democrat in Washington. He spoke at Rick Warren's AIDS conference in December and got a standing ovation. Warren stated he would make a fine president. The concern is this sends a subtle message to Christians that he is safe to vote for in 2008.

• In 2006 it became clear that eschatology (Bible prophecy) is the most mocked category of theology but at the same time, the most important as it plays out before our eyes daily. What interest is left is generally found in Dominion/Kingdom Now Theology; that is, that the church will make the world perfect for the Lord's return. Some of the most-admired Christian radio and TV preachers now promote this false theology found nowhere in the Bible. A runner-up in popularity is the false teaching of Preterism; that is, that all prophecy but the Second Coming took place in 70 A.D. Christians are left bewildered as to what to believe and thus throw the topic overboard although over 60 million have read the Dispensational view from the "Left Behind" books.

THE GOOD NEWS is that much of this is predicted for a last generation. Are we that generation? We don't know but we shouldn't let the above issues get us down. We need, in fact, to look up and NOT around! The King is coming and He will trump all of the above nonsense from church issues to the geo-political. He has the last say, the last laugh, and the last word. His 1,000-year Kingdom on earth followed by the new Heaven and earth will make every wrong right. There will be no treason in the church, the home, or the world, and His government will end the world's strife."

Awaiting His return,

This is right on!
There are people out there that are not scared to tell the truth and maybe there is a great deception that is going on right before us and the church is going right down the same path as the enemies of God because it just feels so right to get along with the world.
Beware of the false teachers and learn the Word of God so you can fight the deception ,
train your children to watch and pray and learn the Word . It is good to know that there are breothers and sisters that speak up. Thanks Kenny for being bold .
Fight the good fight .
