Liberty Post Mortem (After Death)

Joseph Herrin (03-26-2010)

Liberty’s Appointment with Anubis

We live in truly historic times. Those who live in the United States are witnessing the end of a nation whose founding fathers promised “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The great experiment to see whether a free people could govern themselves has come to an inglorious end.

When a people use their liberty to pursue a course of abominations, that freedom they once enjoyed will be taken from them. What the founding father’s did not understand, especially men such as Thomas Jefferson (who was a deist believing in a god of nature, but not the God of the Bible), is that men who are themselves slaves of sin cannot govern themselves righteously. Self-rule by sinful men will always end in abominations resulting in an outward manifestation of their inner enslavement.

II Peter 2:19
Promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.

What is particularly damning for America is that the Christians within her borders have used their liberty to pursue a course of selfish indulgence. Having been given great freedom they did not submit to the rule of God, but chose to rule their lives according to the counsel of their own souls. The church has used her liberty as a covering for evil.

I Peter 2:16
Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.

Rather than being content with food and covering, the church has embraced a spirit of covetousness. Rather than living to do the will of the Father, the church seeks to manipulate God into doing her will and pleasure. She has churned out books, sermons and teachings by the millions promoting the pursuit of selfish fulfillment. American Christians have been feeding on evil dressed in the robes of righteousness. An online review of Joel Osteen’s book Your Best Life Now includes the following indictment.

Houston megachurch pastor and inspirational TV host Osteen offers an overblown and redundant self-help debut. Many Christian readers will undoubtedly be put off by the book’s shallow name-it-and-claim-it theology; although the first chapter claims that "we serve the God that created the universe," the book as a rule suggests the reverse: it’s a treatise on how to get God to serve the demands of self-centered individuals. Osteen tells readers that God wants them to prosper, offering examples of obtaining an elegant mansion or a larger salary ("don’t ever get satisfied with where you are," he cautions).
[Source: Publishers Weekly]

Evidently not too many Christians were put off by the self-centered focus of the book. It sold more than 2.5 million copies in its first year. I am not picking out Joel Osteen as if he were an exception to the rule, more culpable than others. He is a manifestation of the prevailing spirit of Christianity in America. Nor do I seek to present myself as somehow better. Read the book Evidence of Things Unseen and you will see that I walked for years as an exceedingly covetous Christian.

In 1999 the Spirit led me to surrender fully to be led of Him, and this initiated a period of the greatest stripping. All the things gained through years of profligate living were required of me. It was an exceedingly difficult time, but it has resulted in great freedom.

People of God, consider the paradox in these things. When I laid aside personal liberty and submitted to be led of the Spirit of Christ in all things I was made free. It is the bondservant of God who is truly free. When we hold onto our personal freedom and choose our own way, we walk as slaves. Will it not be a merciful thing for Yahweh to remove the liberty His people now enjoy that they might learn that true freedom is found in a life wholly surrendered to the leading of His Spirit? Will it not be a great kindness that He remove their material prosperity that they might begin to discern the depths of the riches of their spiritual inheritance in Christ?

That such a stripping as I experienced a decade ago is coming to God’s people is beyond any doubt in my mind. All those who would walk as disciples of Christ going forward will have to embrace the cost of that discipleship.

Luke 14:33
"So therefore, no one of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.”

Let me state plainly that a Christian’s best life now is not one of material prosperity and selfish pleasure. Your best life now is the one that will lead to conformity to Christ. Only when you are conformed to the image of the One who “emptied Himself” and “took upon the form of a bondservant” will you be prepared to receive glory and honor and an imperishable inheritance that is reserved for those overcoming sons of God.

I thank God that He stripped me of all things. I am overjoyed that He took my eyes off of a pursuit of this world and the things in it, and turned my eyes to accomplishing His will. Was it painful? Absolutely. Was it a fun process? Not at all. Yet the scourging of our Father produces in us the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

The Spirit has testified to me beyond doubt that the things He has led me through in the past 11 years are now to be the portion of a much larger number of His people. Liberty must be surrendered. Liberty in America has already received a mortal wound. We are now observing the death throes of the nation. Soon she will be laid to rest.

You need not wait until God brings the nation into poverty and slavery to embrace a complete surrender of your will to God. The Spirit is inviting you today to yield your life entirely to His direction. Those who give themselves freely will receive a much greater grace.

The Spirit at this moment is speaking through the book of Jeremiah. When the armies of Babylon surrounded Jerusalem and were soon to break through her walls, Yahweh told Jeremiah to give counsel to the people.

Jeremiah 21:8-10
"You shall also say to this people, 'Thus says Yahweh, "Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death. He who dwells in this city will die by the sword and by famine and by pestilence; but he who goes out and falls away to the Chaldeans who are besieging you will live, and he will have his own life as booty. For I have set My face against this city for harm and not for good," declares Yahweh. "It will be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will burn it with fire."'

People of God, the Christians in America are just like the Jews in Jerusalem before it was destroyed. They are holding out in hope that they might yet retain their freedom, keep their lives, and still pursue the course that their own soul dictates to them. Though the Spirit is speaking to them that they must surrender their lives completely to whatever the Father chooses for them, they are not willing to surrender. Due to carnality, or fear, they hesitate.

It will be far better in the days ahead for those who will surrender now. Do not hesitate. Before you see the nation fall; Before you see the cities burned and your possession stripped from your hands; Before you see children slain and the oppression of cruel men, give all you possess into the hands of the Father. What is entrusted to His hands can never be lost. Has He not promised a hundredfold return to those who surrender all things freely?

Mark 10:29-30
Yahshua said, "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel's sake, but that he shall receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.”

If you do not surrender all to the Father’s hands, will you not be like those Jews who waited too long in the days of Jeremiah? God has set before you the way of life and the way of death. Do not be deceived! The slayer is standing at the door even now.

Let me share with you what I see in this parable of the Egyptian god Anubis sailing into New York Harbor on the day that President Obama signed the Healthcare Reform Bill into law. Consider for a moment who this god was to the Egyptians.

The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the Pharaoh. At this time, Anubis was the most important god of the Dead...
Anubis was associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journey into the afterlife. He was usually portrayed as a half human, half jackal, or in full jackal form wearing a ribbon and holding a flail in the crook of its arm. The jackal was strongly associated with cemeteries in ancient Egypt, since it was a scavenger which threatened to uncover human bodies and eat their flesh. The distinctive black color of Anubis "did not have to do with the jackal [per se] but with the color of rotting flesh and with the black soil of the Nile valley...”

In ancient depictions found in Egypt, the left hand of Anubis held the Ankh. This cross shaped item symbolized the key to life.

I have noted in prior posts that President Obama is left handed. When he signed the Healthcare Reform Bill into law he used 22 black pens manufactured by Cross. This was an occult message that in signing this bill he held the keys to life and death in his hands. Congress passed this bill through a parliamentary process dubbed “the Slaughter Solution.” They have delivered the American people into the hands of evil men who will now make full use of that which has been given to them.

I recommend watching the video found at the end of the following news post. You will see how much trouble was gone through to present this occult message.:

It was not coincidental that Anubis sailed past the Statue of Liberty on that day. This event had been planned and carefully choreographed. Announcements were made days earlier that Anubis would have a rendevous with Lady Liberty.

Anubis to Visit Statue of Liberty

Satan ever seeks to imitate and supplant Yahweh. Yahweh has from the beginning spoken through signs and parables. Yahweh has hidden many truths that only the wise and the righteous are intended to discern. Satan has followed this pattern. He is the master of many occult practices. The word occult means “something hidden, or obscure.” It is intended that only those initiated into the secrets of Lucifer should discern the symbolism used.

Satan chose the day and the hour of recent events. He is testifying that liberty will now be laid to rest in America, even as Anubis was the god who prepared people for burial.

If I were more skilled with computer graphics I would insert an image of Liberty laying prostrate with Anubis above her. This is what Satan has planned, and Yahweh has given him permission to accomplish his desire in the land. America has been handed over to judgment as surely as Jerusalem was given into the hands of the king of Babylon in the days of Jeremiah.

Insert: A short time after posting this online a sister in Christ sent me the following graphic she created. Thank you Brittni!

The question remains, “Will you surrender your life into the hands of God now, or will you wait in hope that the judgment will yet be averted?” Are your possessions, soulish pursuits, and personal freedom so precious to you that you will not give yourself wholly to Yahweh? Remember, the words of the Savior.

Matthew 16:25
For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.

In 1999 the Spirit confronted me with a choice. He told me that I must surrender fully to Him. I knew there were areas of my life I had kept back from full surrender. There were areas of my will that I had not relinquished. I had not come to the place where I would commit to following Yahweh wherever He led, and doing whatever He said. I wanted to weigh everything first. I wanted to be able to determine the course of my life, fearing what my life might be like if I gave it completely to the Father.

Looking back now, I will not tell you that I had nothing to fear, nor that there was very little cost involved with this surrender. There has been great cost. At the same time there has been abundant grace. There has also been peace before God in knowing that I did not shrink back; that I followed wherever He has led. I have gained far more than I have lost, and I have a promise of reward in the ages to come.

The hour is late. The enemy is at the gates. The Spirit is saying that NOW is the time to surrender. Give all to God freely, or you will have it wrested from you without reward or grace. The promise of Yahweh is sure. Those who lose their life for Christ’s sake will save it.

In Christ, liberty is truly post mortem. Those who do not die will not live.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

P.S. After posting this I observed that this is the 322nd post I have made to the Parables Blog.

Joseph Herrin (03-24-2010)

I had stated in a comment on a recent blog posting that I was not aware of any significance to the date of March 23, which is the day President Obama signed the healthcare reform legislation into law. Several people wrote to share with me that March 23 is the anniversary date of Patrick Henry’s famous speech before the Virginia Convention where he uttered the famous words, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Some have suggested that Patrick Henry’s speech, and President Obama’s signing into law of this recent piece of legislation, stand as book-ends at the beginning and end of America as a free republic. Following is the context of this famous line.

"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

America is losing her liberty, and this legislation was passed with the use of “the Slaughter Solution,” so it appears that America at this juncture will receive the latter option of Patrick Henry’s famous quotation, “Death!”

There is much in this legislation that brings an end to liberty. For the first time in America’s history the government can enforce penalties upon a person just for being alive. By mandating that every American must have health insurance or pay a fine the government has brought an end to individual freedom. This requirement is unprecedented in that it forces a person to purchase a good or service simply by virtue of their being alive. There is no ability to “opt out” of public healthcare. Each individual is forced to participate or be fined.

This legislation opens up Pandora’s box. It will lead to a cascade of additional goods and services that citizens will be required to participate in as the government becomes the overseer and director of every individual’s life. It is truly the death knell of individual freedom.

It is interesting to note that Patrick Henry’s speech has been linked to the life of the Roman statesman and politician Cato. Cato battled for years in the Roman Senate against an expanding Roman government that sought to exert tyrannic control over its subjects. Cato in 46 B.C. committed suicide when it became apparent that the Senate had lost their epic battle against Julius Caesar. It is said that he preferred death to being subject to a tyrant, which supposedly served as a background context for Patrick Henry’s speech. This makes it seem all the more symbolic that the “Slaughter Solution” is termed as “a self-executing rule.”

A brother in Christ sent me the following words. This was part of what he read the same day that I posted the article “The Slaughter Solution.”

The Lord gave me this passage this morning found in the Book of Jeremiah 7:30-34:

Jeremiah 7:30-34 (New Living Translation)

The Valley of Slaughter

"30 “The people of Judah have sinned before my very eyes,” says the Lord. “They have set up their abominable idols right in the Temple that bears my name, defiling it. 31 They have built pagan shrines at Topheth, the garbage dump in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they burn their sons and daughters in the fire. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing! 32 So beware, for the time is coming,” says the Lord, “when that garbage dump will no longer be called Topheth or the valley of Ben-Hinnom, but the
Valley of Slaughter. They will bury the bodies in Topheth until there is no more room for them. 33 The bodies of my people will be food for the vultures and wild animals, and no one will be left to scare them away. 34 I will put an end to the happy singing and laughter in the streets of Jerusalem. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will no longer be heard in the towns of Judah. The land will lie in complete desolation."


Phil Schembri

A sister in Christ sent me a writing that included the following quotation attributed to Abraham Lincoln as he was discoursing on the only way in which America could be defeated.

The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions:
Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois

January 27, 1838

How then shall we perform it? At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

[End Excerpt]

As I mentioned previously, it is not America’s leaders, or a cabal of globalists who have brought about America’s demise. It is her own citizens who have had abundant ease and great prosperity. America’s citizens have used their liberty to pursue a course of sensuality and abominations. It seems symbolic that as the House of Representatives convened Sunday night to vote for passage of this bill that one member of Congress cried out “Baby Killer.” Certainly America’s murder of more than fifty million babies has brought a crushing burden of bloodguilt upon her land.

Judgment ultimately comes from God. It comes after many warnings, chastisements, and only when a people have proven themselves so obstinate that nothing else remains but to send them calamity.

Revelation 2:21-23
And I gave her time to repent; and she does not want to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will cast her upon a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. And I will kill her children with pestilence; and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.

My heart is heavy today. I am observing in the lives of some individuals this same process being played out. Corrections have come and have been scorned. Rebellious hearts have determined to enter into even further transgression against Yahweh. This will lead to a judgment of a much more severe nature.

It is not pleasant to observe the calamity that befalls men and women. Yet it is better to see them crushed by God and turn to repentance than to have them continue in a course of sin and rebellion.

Knowing the weakness of my own flesh I pray that God might be merciful with others as I desire His mercy in my life. Yet I cannot pray that He would withhold that which is necessary, though it be most severe. My daughter notified me of today’s devotion by J. Oswald Chambers in the book My Utmost for His Highest.


"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30

If you become a necessity to a soul, you are out of God's order. As a worker, your great responsibility is to be a friend of the Bridegroom. When once you see a soul in sight of the claims of Jesus Christ, you know that your influence has been in the right direction, and instead of putting out a hand to prevent the throes, pray that they grow ten times stronger until there is no power on earth or in hell that can hold that soul away from Jesus Christ. Over and over again, we become amateur providences, we come in and prevent God; and say - "This and that must not be." Instead of proving friends of the Bridegroom, we put our sympathy in the way, and the soul will one day say - "That one was a thief, he stole my affections from Jesus, and I lost my vision of Him."

Beware of rejoicing with a soul in the wrong thing, but see that you do rejoice in the right thing. "The friend of the Bridegroom . . . rejoiceth greatly because of the Bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease." This is spoken with joy and not with sadness - at last they are to see the Bridegroom! And John says this is his joy. It is the absolute effacement of the worker, he is never thought of again.

Watch for all you are worth until you hear the Bridegroom's voice in the life of another. Never mind what havoc it brings, what upsets, what crumblings of health, rejoice with divine hilarity when once His voice is heard. You may often see Jesus Christ wreck a life before He saves it. (Cf. Matt. 10:34.)

The Slaughter Solution

Joseph Herrin (03-22-2010)

Zechariah 11:4-6
Thus says Yahweh my God, "Pasture the flock doomed to slaughter. Those who buy them slay them and go unpunished... And their own shepherds have no pity on them. For I shall no longer have pity on the inhabitants of the land," declares Yahweh.

Some things are so overtly symbolic that they cannot avoid drawing attention, contemplation, and conclusions. Consider the events of September 11, 2001. On thats day America was struck by evil men and the entire world watched as the World Trade Towers came crashing to the ground. It was immediately noted that the date was 9-11. These are the same numbers used throughout America to contact police, firemen and ambulances in an emergency. Since that day the phrase 9-11 has become synonymous with this day of great slaughter.

Isaiah 30:25
And on every lofty mountain and on every high hill there will be streams running with water on the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

What kind of streams run on a day of great slaughter? They are streams of tears. The proud, the lofty, and the exalted ones will run with rivers of tears.

When I heard that the Democratic members of Congress and President Obama had found a way to pass healthcare reform, circumventing both the spirit and the letter of the Constitution, I could not help but note the prophetic name given to the scheme they employed. Republicans called it “The Slaughter Solution” as it was set forth by New York Democrat Louise Slaughter who is the Chairwoman of the House Rules Committee.

This “solution” avoids the need for a regular vote on the passage of the bill which would normally require a 3/5 majority, or 60% voting in favor of it. Instead, the Democratic controlled House of Representatives adopted a “Deem and Pass” methodology where only a simple majority is needed (50% plus one vote). The website American Thinker has an interesting article on this procedure. They suggest you should say “Deem and Pass” three times quickly. It sounds like “Demon Pass.”

This Deem and Pass procedure is termed a “Self-Executing Rule.” I hope by this time you are beginning to see a parable in all of this. The American people are voting for their own Slaughter. They will be able to blame only themselves for the demise of both the populace and constitutional government. I found it telling that Louise Slaughter strenuously objected to any limitations being written into the healthcare bill that would limit the government’s ability to use public funds to pay for abortions.

What do you suppose God thinks of 50 million babies being aborted in America since Roe v. Wade passed in 1973? There word “SLAUGHTER” comes to mind. Now Yahweh will give a people over to their own judgment.

Matthew 7:2
For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

There is coming a great slaughter in this nation, and we should not suppose that it is the fault of the Democrats, or the Republicans, or even of a diabolical group of global elite who are pressing for a New World Order that includes an 80% reduction in world population. The slaughter coming to America is the judgment of God upon a people who have slaughtered tens of millions of their own children, far exceeding even the atrocities of Hitler’s Third Reich. For this reason alone God would be justified in making a great slaughter of the populace, yet America has added transgression upon transgression.

The litany of abominations in the nation have been cited before. Homosexuality, murder, theft, fornication, adultery, idolatry, pornography, child abuse, sorcery, and on and on the list goes. An evil body of rulers would not have been given the reins of power, and the ability to carry forth their wicked schemes had not God chosen to deliver America over to judgment.

Ezekiel 21:31-32
I shall pour out My indignation on you; I shall blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and I shall give you into the hand of brutal men, skilled in destruction. You will be fuel for the fire; your blood will be in the midst of the land...

America has executed herself. Her wealth is being given into the hands of others who are looting her pockets. Millions of Americans are losing their homes, and nearly a fifth of the population is out of work. The freedoms and protections of the Constitution are being stripped away systematically and quickly. A once proud and free people are being reduced to poverty and slavery. What we see now is only the beginning.

Kitty Werthmann

This morning I found in my inbox a writing forwarded to me that I want to share with you. It is truly prophetic of those things coming to America. It was written by Kitty Werthmann who lives In Pierre, South Dakota. She is the State President for Eagle Forum, which was started by Phyllis Schlafly. Kitty Werthmann emigrated to the United States from Austria in the 1950s. She has written about her experience of seven years under German rule from 1938 to 1945.

by Kitty Werthman

I am an eyewitness to history. I can tell you that Hitler did not take Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide - 98% of the vote. I've never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn't want to work; there simply weren't any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people - about 30 daily.

The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna, Linz, and Graz were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.

We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group - Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany.

We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn't support his family.

Hitler Targets Education-Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang "Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles," and had physical education.

Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun - no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

Equal Rights Hits Home

In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn't have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:

When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

Health Care and Small Business choked by Government Controls:

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna... After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

"Mercy Killing" Redefined:

In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

The Final Steps - Gun Laws:

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

Totalitarianism didn't come quickly; it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.

After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria. Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn't destroy, they burned. We called it "The Burned Earth." Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn't, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account.

It's true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity. America Truly is the greatest country in the world. Don't let freedom slip away.
[End of Writing]

People of God, America’s freedom has already slipped away. America has already been handed over to judgment, and she is at this moment being sacked and looted by international bankers and having her laws and entire society altered in radical ways. Barack Obama promised “Change” and he has been granted authority by God to bring this change to America. It will not be the change America seeks. It will not be the utopia of universal healthcare, housing, food, prosperity, ease and comfort that her citizens are anticipating.

Consider the following parallels to Hitler’s Germany and the United States at this hour. Barack Obama has suggested that all youth in America should serve a year of compulsory community service. He would establish an organization similar to the Youth Corps of the National Socialist Party of Germany. Following is an excerpt from an article posted last year.

The House passed a bill yesterday which includes disturbing language indicating young people will be forced to undertake mandatory national service programs as fears about President Barack Obama’s promised “civilian national security force” intensify.

The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act, known as the GIVE Act, was passed yesterday by a 321-105 margin and now goes to the Senate.

Under section 6104 of the bill, entitled “Duties,” in subsection B6, the legislation states that a commission will be set up to investigate, “Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”

Section 120 of the bill also discusses the “Youth Engagement Zone Program” and states that “service learning” will be “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”


One of the first acts of the 111th Congress, which is currently in session, was to establish regional detention camps across America that could be scaled up quickly in a national emergency to house a vast number of Americans. You can read about “The National Emergency Centers Establishment Act” at the following government link:

On the very first day of the 111th Congress a gun registration act was introduced. It is H.R. 45, called “The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act.” You can read about it here:

Last year I included the following excerpt in a blog post. The author indicates that the military is being instructed to prepare for major civil unrest ahead.

Yes, U.S. Officials Are Quietly Preparing for BIG Trouble Ahead

A new report by the Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute states flatly the U.S. military must prepare for "a violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States" that could be provoked by "unforeseen economic collapse" or "loss of functioning political and legal order."

Late last year, The Washington Post noted the incoming Obama Administration is going to "earmark" at least 20,000 troops returning from Iraq to deal with "domestic emergencies." Since then, the Army Times has broken the story that the domestic emergency army unit has been increased to 80,000 troops, who are being trained right now in Georgia.


I recommend the following Blog Post to understand the trend that has been occurring whereby the government is preparing for very violent and calamitous days ahead for America.

People of God, as days pass it is becoming more evident that the plans of wicked men who have been given control of this nation are advancing quickly. The day of slaughter is drawing ever closer. It is not my intent to excite with rhetoric, but rather to stir the saints of God out of their lethargy and slumber. If you are pursuing the American Dream, if you are focused on your next entertainment, or pleasure, or are living to pursue the things that your soul desires, then you will not be prepared to spiritually survive those things that are coming swiftly.

This is an hour of preparation before the storm hits. It is a season to be getting your spiritual house in order. Yahweh is leading His people to surrender their lives to a complete and abandoned pursuit of His will. He would have you to learn what it is to hear His voice and obey. He would instruct you in trusting Him for the necessities of life. He would lead you into a life of faith and obedience, if you would seek Him.

I am not advocating that any believer should quit their job, cancel their healthcare, or make other radical steps. I am declaring that all believers should be seeking the will of the Father at this hour. What He says, do. Where He directs, go. Be attentive to the voice of the Spirit. Press into the Father. Ask Him to prepare you that you might stand in the day of slaughter that is coming.

In a day of great judgment many will perish, yet a remnant will be purged, purified and refined. We live at the end of the age when the earth must experience her birthpangs. Do you see the signs of the times all around you? Are you living as a wise man or woman, making the most of these days before the darkness falls?

As the flock of Christ you need to be attentive to your Shepherd’s voice. There is a flock that is doomed to slaughter. Pray that you might escape these things.

Zechariah 11:4-6
Thus says Yahweh my God, "Pasture the flock doomed to slaughter. Those who buy them slay them and go unpunished... And their own shepherds have no pity on them. For I shall no longer have pity on the inhabitants of the land," declares Yahweh.

Truly the shepherds of this nation have no pity on those whose lives are in their hands. They will not be moved by the suffering of the masses. God has delivered America into the hands of the pitiless and the cruel for she has slaughtered her own children and shown no pity. Day by day the slaughter continues, and soon a new slaughter will begin.

Mark 13:19-20
For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

The Holocaust Cycle

Joseph Herrin (03-20-2010)

Holocaust Tattoo

Ecclesiastes 1:9
That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.

This post is not so much a look back at the past as it is a forecast of the very near future. Undoubtedly, what is shared here will be disturbing to many, but it is offered with good intent. The people of God need to recognize the hour they live in.

There are certain patterns that play out in history. Things which have been often reoccur in a new generation. Atrocities and large scale suffering are very much cyclical for the nature of Adamic man, and of Satan, has not changed in the past 6,000 years. Neither has the fact changed that mankind can only be perfected through suffering. This fact was declared to our very first forebears in the Garden of Eden after they sinned.

Genesis 3:16
To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth. In pain you shall bring forth children; Yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."

I have shared before that these words of God to Eve are a great parable. Eve is a type of the church, which is the Bride of Christ. Christ is called “the second Adam” and “the last Adam” (I Corinthians 15:45). Even as the first Adam had a bride who could only bring forth children in his image through intense suffering, so too does the last Adam have a Bride. She too can only bring forth sons in His image through suffering. We find that Christ used this very analogy when speaking to His disciples.

John 16:20-21
Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a man has been born into the world.

People of God, the Spirit has been testifying through many signs that the hour is at hand for the church to go through her birth pangs. Recently we witnessed one of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded. It occurred in the nation of Chile. This earthquake measured 8.8 on the Richter scale. The number 8 speaks of new beginnings, and is a number relating to Christ.

This earthquake occurred near the city of Concepcion, and this too is part of the parable that is to be understood. Conception is a word that is linked to the subject of pregnancy and birth. An interesting note on this particular earthquake is that Concepcion has as a sister city the town of Bethlehem in Israel.

It was in Bethlehem that Christ was born, and it is in this last hour that sons must come forth in the image of Christ. Even as a woman knows birthpangs before she brings forth a son, so too must the church go through birthpangs for her sons to be manifest.

Romans 8:22-23
For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

An earthquake is a shadow and type of a woman experiencing birth pangs. Man’s body was formed of the dust of the earth. An earthquake is a great contraction and upheaval of the earth. This great earthquake symbolizes that which is at hand. Another parallel we see at this time to the birth of Christ is that 2010 is a census year. Not only is it a census year in the United States, but it is the year of the World Census being conducted under the auspices of the United Nations.

For those interested in numbers, there are 222 countries/areas participating in the World Census, with 11 countries having no census scheduled. See graphic below:

Number of Countries/Areas

144 added to 78 equals 222. America is also in the second year of the 111th Congress, and each Congress runs for 2 years. It is America’s 222nd year. What is the significance of this number? Two speaks of a second event. Three is a number of fulness and completion. Repeating the number two three times speaks of a second event that brings things to fulness and completion.

We read in Scriptures that there was a world census in the year that Christ was born.

Luke 2:1-4
Now it came about in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all were proceeding to register for the census, everyone to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem...

2010 is a world census year. One of the largest earthquakes ever recorded occurs near Concepcion, which is a sister city of Bethlehem. We are seeing a cycle repeated at this hour. It will be a traumatic time, a time of great upheaval in the earth. All those who desire to see the will of Yahweh fulfilled must stand in anticipation of this day. Do you know where the last 222 occurs in Scripture? Consider the significance of it.

Revelation 22:20
He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly." Amen. Come, Lord Yahshua.

This is the next to the last verse of the Bible, and the time is near for the fulfilling of all things. Though great tribulation must be passed through, it will all be forgotten when it is observed that a man child has been born, that sons have come forth in the image of Christ.

Romans 8:29
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren...

I want to mention in this post some thoughts that relate to this cycle of tribulation and birth. In the late 1930s and first half of the 1940s great tribulation was seen in Europe as Hitler launched the “final solution” which was the attempted extermination of certain people groups, foremost of which were the Jewish people. It is estimated that 6 million Jews died in the concentration camps established by the National Socialist Party of Germany.

This experience was one of the most horrible periods of human history, yet it will be eclipsed by a far greater time of tribulation that is to come. What the world witnessed in the 1940s was the affliction of the natural seed of Abraham. What we will see in days ahead is the affliction of the spiritual seed of Abraham. From a focus on the Jews, the focus will shift to Christians. The pattern is first the natural, then the spiritual.

I Corinthians 15:46
However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.

One result of the holocaust was the birth of the Jewish nation, which had not existed for nearly 2,000 years. The coming holocaust will also result in the appearance of a people of God in the earth. They will be known, where they have formerly been unknown. The coming days could well be described by the following words of the apostle Paul:

Romans 8:18-19
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed in us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.

The revealing of the sons of God will only come through great tribulation. Out of a time of darkness will come great light.

Isaiah 60:1-3
"Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; But Yahweh will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you. And nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”

Even as Israel arose as a nation out of the horror of the holocaust, so too will a body of mature sons of Christ, adorned with His glory, arise out of the tribulation of the days we are entering into.

This morning I considered another parallel to the suffering of the natural seed of Abraham, and the days at hand. A sister sent me a link to the following post on the Unleavened Bread Ministry website:

The article speaks of the technology being promoted by IBM to track all men and women. IBM has supported and partnered with the manufacturers of the Verichip system that I reported on recently. Verichip is now called PostiveID.

At the above link you will find more information on the plans for the implementation of this chip in the United States (to be used similarly in other nations). Also, there is some very sobering news on IBM’s involvement in the NAZI party, as the head of IBM met with Adolph Hitler and established offices even in the concentration camps to track Jews and other “undesirables.” I encourage you to read the article, and watch the video, which I am also including here.

I want to clarify a few things before closing this post. There will be other people who are targeted for persecution in this last hour aside from Christians. This was also the pattern for the holocaust of the 1940s. Jews shared the concentration camps with gypsies, Poles, Christians, and other people groups. Neither do I believe the Jews have seen the worst of their suffering. I believe that Art Katz has a very sound teaching on this subject. You can find it at the following link:

Yet, I believe that Satan’s greatest wrath in these last days will be focused upon the spiritual seed of Christ.

Revelation 12:11-13
"And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death. For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time." And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the man child.

The woman who gives birth to the man child is the church. Even as Eve was the bride of Adam and she brought forth a male child in Adam’s image, so too is the Church the Bride of Christ. Out of her will come a man child in Christ’s image.

We read that Herod sought to kill the child born to Mary, but God warned Joseph in a dream to flee to Egypt where a place had been prepared for them. So too will the Father have a place prepared for the woman who brings forth the man child in this last hour. Great wrath will be poured out on that part of the body of Christ that remains.

Revelation 12:17
And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yahshua.

We see that in the time of Christ’s birth Herod slew all the children in Bethlehem and its surrounding area. It was a time of great slaughter. Satan’s focus in this last day will be upon destroying the seed of Christ, but God will help them.

I share these things to demonstrate again that the hour is very late. We are at the end of the age. I have no predictions on when things will occur. I do believe that things will move quickly, and will accelerate in the days ahead. Do we not see great changes coming to the nations at this time? Did not Barack Obama campaign on a theme of “Change”? Yet the change he will bring is not the change for which people were hoping.

It is a season to be watchful and waiting. It is an hour to walk daily by the leading of the Spirit. It is not a time to be pursuing worldly goals, or engaging in activities arising from the soul of man.

Matthew 24:37-42
"For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be... Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.”

Please note also that I have been spending much time getting the PARABLES BOOKSHELF newsletters prepared. I have sensed the leading of the Spirit in this work, and this is why I have not been posting many blogs in the past few weeks. I am still engaged in this work, and will be limited in my time available to answer e-mails and to post blogs for some more weeks. Please understand if I do not write a response back to every letter. I do read them all, and appreciate hearing from you.

As the Spirit prompts me, I will post writings to the Parables Blog. You can also access the newsletters for prisoners and for all others who want a printed copy of the books and teachings I have posted. There are 44 issues now online. They are available at the following link:

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

Reading Between the Lies... HealthCare Hypocrisy

Joseph Herrin (03-19-2010)

Pictured: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, President Barack Obama, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi

Isaiah 3:12
O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray, and confuse the direction of your paths.

We are living in the last days of America as a free nation. Every liberty guaranteed by the United States Constitution is under attack. The protections of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have already been greatly diminished. America is quickly degenerating into a nation where her people have traded freedom for the promise of security and provision. In this bargain her citizens will truly lose their precious freedom, but they will fail to attain the promise of security and provision.

As a man who understands that I was created for Yahweh’s pleasure, and as a Christian who has been purchased by the blood of Christ and made a citizen of a heavenly kingdom, I view myself as an alien and a stranger in the land. Christianity has flourished in some of the most repressive political environments on earth. Indeed, suffering and persecution are the great purifiers of the faith of the saints. I am therefore not alarmed at what I see coming to America, but I would have the people of God within her borders to walk with understanding, anticipating those things to come. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Neither am I seeking to encourage anyone to work by human means to overcome the evil that is advancing on every front in this nation. Lies, deceit, and hypocrisy are the order of the day throughout society. Deception is very evident in the mainstream media, which is highly controlled, leading the people as sheep to the slaughter. There is no honesty in politics. The Luciferian motives of those in power are always hidden behind a mask of altruism as they pretend to be seeking the welfare of the poor, neglected and downtrodden.

II Corinthians 11:14-15
Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

The wise will not be fooled by appearances. They will look behind the thin veneer of benevolent posturing and see the malevolent intent of those who are quickly driving the nation into a totalitarian state where freedom is absent and prosperity is no more to be found.

Yet, the majority of Christians are not wise. The Internet is filled with blogs and e-mails urging believers to petition congress, to join a Tea Party, or to pursue some other carnal course to stave off the demise of America as a free nation. They have not discerned that the writing is already on the wall. The people of America, including the Christians in her borders, have been weighed in the balance and found wanting.

Writing on the Wall - Rembrandt

One might say, “the writing is on the Wall Street.” America’s dollar will not last much longer. The United Nations is now suggesting that a new world currency should be sought to replace the dollar. America’s money has been ruined by profligate spending, and cannot be sustained much longer by the greatest debtor nation on earth whose economy is in freefall. America’s debt burden is accelerating while her economic prosperity is declining. It is a recipe for disaster, and is now very far advanced.

Those who would be masters of a New World Order do not desire a powerful nation of sovereign people to exist. Only by reducing the nations to poverty and impotence can a strong central world government arise to dominate all the nations of the world. America must fall. Her vaunted economy must collapse. Her citizens must lose all control over the direction of her government. The stage has been set. The tragedy is about to be played out.

More importantly, however, God has judged that it is no longer in the interests of His people for America to remain free and prosperous. America has become as Sodom in her abundance and ease.

Ezekiel 16:49-50
Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food, and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy. Thus they were haughty and committed abominations before Me. Therefore I removed them when I saw it.

The affluence and liberty of America has led to great sin. America is a nation of idolaters, fornicators, and covetous men and women. Violence has increased in her streets. Theft is rampant. Tens of millions of babies have been murdered as her citizens have wanted to commit fornication and adultery without consequences. Yet, like David when he tried to hide his sin of adultery by murdering the husband of Bathsheba, the consequences of America’s sexual sins will now be far, far worse for she has slain babies to avoid the consequences of her actions.

The church has not been able to stand against the tidal wave of moral decay for she has abandoned the disciples’ cross. The people of God have diminished in salt and light by failing to count the cost of following Christ. The church has embraced a false gospel of selfish pursuit when she was called to live a life of abandonment to the will and pleasure of God. God will now bring a stern correction to His people. It is His mercy that leads Him to do so. A multitude will fall away into greater apostasy and abominations, but a remnant will be purged, purified and refined through the trials that await them.

As I look at all the energy being expended by the massed weight of political forces, and the continuous drumbeat of the media, to pass a massive restructuring of the healthcare system, I have wondered what it is all about. I have no doubt that there is no benevolent motive guiding this massive push. The citizens of the nation do not want what is being foisted on them. Yet it is being rammed down their throats by men and women who demurely testify that they are seeking only the good of the nation.

A few weeks ago, Evan Bayh III, senator from Indiana, made a surprise announcement that he would not run for Congress again in 2010. He had won his seat by record percentages in the last two elections, but he said he would not run again. His reason? He said that serving in Congress was very dissatisfying to him personally. Great pressure had come to bear on him since he spoke critically of his own party when the Democrats lost the Senatorial seat held by Ted Kennedy in a special election. Bayh stated:

“There’s going to be a tendency on the part of our people to be in denial about all this,” Bayh told ABC News, but “if you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call, there’s no hope of waking up...”

“It’s why moderates and independents even in a state as Democratic as Massachusetts just aren’t buying our message,” he said. “They just don’t believe the answers we are currently proposing are solving their problems. That’s something that has to be corrected.”

Here is one man, and a Democrat to boot, who has stated the truth. The people of America do not want what is being forced upon them. The great effort to pass healthcare reform is undeniable. Bribery, extortion, blackmail, and every possible means are being used to pass this sweeping legislation.

Eric Massa - Just Vote “No” and Out You Go!

Just recently the Democrats forced one of their own members to resign. Eric Massa said the Democrats forced him out because he was a “no” vote on the healthcare bill.

Massa had the temerity to oppose his own party when he determined that this legislation was not in the benefit of the people who elected him. As a result, the Democrats launched an ethics investigation against one of their own. The charges truly sound trivial in comparison to much of the debauchery that fills the lives of elected representatives of America. Someone is playing hardball on this issue, and you can rest assured that this legislation will not be set aside until it is passed.

Recently the news has reported that pages were added to the Healthcare Reform Bill that would designate hundreds of millions of dollars to go to Louisiana. This insured that congressmen opposed to the bill in that state would vote Yes. It has been perjoratively called “The Lousiana Purchase.” Then there is “The Cornhusker Kickback” to insure that legislators from Nebraska voted in favor. And Utah Congressman Jim Matheson’s brother was appointed to a Federal judgeship by Obama. Matheson, who was a firm "no" vote, has changed his opposition to the bill to “undecided” since this occurred. It is also reported that congressman Allan Mollohan had a longstanding FBI investigation into past actions canceled when he came on board with healthcare reform.

The past few days a news item has been receiving great attention. It has been revealed that the Democrats who are in control of both the Senate and the House are going to change the rules for the House of Representatives to vote on the healthcare reform bill approved by the Senate. Rather than requiring 60% approval, which they cannot get, they will only need a simple majority. Considering all the votes bought, the Congressmen who have been run off, and the changes in the way the vote will take place, it appears likely that the healthcare reform bill will pass soon.

Questions remain. “Why is this such a critical piece of legislation to those who are the true powers behind the scene?” “What are the puppet masters of the New World Order seeking to accomplish?” “What dire consequences await the citizens of America?”

The one overarching desire of those who desire to be masters of the world is control over all mankind. They want all men to march in tune to their drumbeat. There can be no true freedom in the New World Order. All thought, all will, all action, must be bent before Lucifer who is the Great Architect of this World Order.

There is included in the healthcare reform bill a foundation for a control so far reaching that it is staggering to the imagination. The healthcare reform bill includes legislation that would make the IRS the overseer of compliance. Any American who does not have health insurance can be fined $500, and undoubtedly the penalties for non-participation will quickly become more severe.

The USA Today article mentions the IRS being used by the government as an agent for “social engineering.” Yet the article does not mention the true scope of what they will be doing. Like every government program, it will expand rapidly.

Once the government becomes the overseer of all healthcare, and makes it a crime to not participate, their draconian rule will be observed in many intrusions into the private lives of its citizens. The government will be able to assess penalties for people smoking, being overweight, having existing medical conditions. They will be able to refuse healthcare to pregnant mothers whose babies are deemed to be at risk of disease, or birth defect. They can demand that children be aborted based upon risk assessment, and on projections of lifelong healthcare costs.

Care for the elderly will be rationed, and yoking healthcare to the IRS is merely prophetic of the direction all things will go. The level of healthcare one will receive will be linked to their productivity in the same way that Social Security benefits today are linked to the amount one paid in during their working years. People who are non-producers, or classified as “useless eaters” as the National Socialist Party of Germany (Nazis) declared the physically and mentally handicapped, the infirm, and uneducated, will be placed into the lowest tier of support, or shunted off to die.

At the same time that this legislation is being put forth, Barack Obama is being advised of a new Immigration Reform initiative led by Senators Chuck Schumer of N.Y. and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. This legislation includes provision for a National ID card, which is being touted as the solution to insure that all workers in America are legal workers. Without the ID card one would not be permitted to work.

The hour is quickly coming when one will not be able to buy, sell, work, receive healthcare, bank, or participate in society apart from the approval of that government which is being established. It will not be the government of the founding fathers of America. The Constitution will be laid to rest.

People of God, I am not being sensationalistic in making these statements. The Scriptures prophesy that these days are coming. It is appointed to us to live in such times.

In preparation for these days the Father led me back in the 1990s to begin withdrawing from dependence upon this world system. He led me to cancel my health insurance in the mid 1990s. He directed me to leave my job in 1999, and to look to Him to provide for all the needs of my family of four. Without a job, without healthcare, being committed to following the Father wherever He would lead, and doing whatever He would have me do, I found that He was faithful to provide for us. I did not tell my needs to others. I did not solicit funds when I had a pressing need. I was led of the Spirit to cast all my cares upon the Father.

I Peter 5:7
Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.

Matthew 6:25-34
"For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat , or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

I have walked this path for a number of years now. I am at this very day engaged in fulfilling that work the Father has called me to do. I daily look to Him to provide my need. I have no employment, no healthcare, yet my Father cares for me. He has told me that He has led me down this path as a pioneer and an explorer that I might encourage His saints in coming days when many more will be led to embrace a similar walk.

You will see shortly that all believers are brought to a place of decision. They will either have to embrace the beast system of this present world, or they will have to cast all over into the hands of God. To follow Christ will require a practical daily faith. Fears will have to be overcome. The opposition of friends, family, and the majority of those in the church will have to be withstood while pressing on faithfully down the path God has appointed to you.

It has been a costly walk for me. You can read about it in the book Evidence of Things Unseen.

At the same time, it has been a time of great fellowship with the Father, and much spiritual growth. Yahweh will soon lead many into times of trials, and to face difficulties, that they might be perfected as sons and daughters. You have before you also the leaders of this nation who promise to lead you to peace and safety and provision. Heed the words of God.

Proverbs 14:12
There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

Matthew 7:13-14
"Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”

People of God, there will be no lack of voices, even among ministers in the church, who will tell you that embracing the beast system of this world government is God’s will for you. They will quote Scriptures, and speak with reasonable voices. They will truly appear as “servants of righteousness.” It will only be by being attentive to that still small voice of the Spirit, and refusing to judge by appearances, that you will be able to escape the snare of the Devil.

I have never counseled any man to live the way I have lived. I have told no man to quit his job, or to cancel his health insurance. I did not do these things myself until the Spirit directed me to do so. What I do urge all the saints of Christ to do is to seek the mind of the Spirit of God in all things. Where He leads, go. What He speaks, do. This will be your true path to peace, safety and provision in these days.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding.

Joseph Herrin (03-05-2010)

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I announced a short time back that the Father has directed me to take the books and assorted teachings on the Heart4God and Parables Blog websites and convert them to a newsletter format where they could be mailed to men and women in prison. This newsletter form is also suitable for anyone who desires to share the teachings of this minister with others.

You can find these newsletters posted online at the following link:

Ifeanyi Isitor, a brother in Christ in England, has done a great job in posting this material for me, and as I send him further issues of the PARABLES BOOKSHELF you will find them posted on this same page.

You will also find a page giving instructions for printing and mailing these newsletters to others. Let me encourage you to do so.

I am convinced that it is the will of the Father for me to provide you with this resource that you might use it to reach out to others who are hungry for truth in this hour. If you have been instructed, encouraged, challenged, or edified by these teachings, then I exhort you to share these messages with others. The Father has not directed me to raise up a large, centralized, prison mailing ministry, but rather to provide this resource to His body that each individual member might be led of the Spirit in sharing truth and light with others, wherever, and however, the Spirit of Christ might direct you.

I have shared recently that the Father has spoken to me through the imagery of Joseph as he went across the land of Egypt in the seven years of plenty. He raised up storehouses all across the land and filled them with grain. When the time of famine came, the storehouses were opened that the people in each surrounding area might be fed during a time of great famine.

What I see the Father indicating by this type and shadow is that He would have me to provide you, the body of Christ, with that spiritual food He has delivered to me that you might in turn distribute it to others who are hungering for truth.

One thing that I have noted, both from the Scriptures and from personal experience, is that men and women who are cast upon hard times and whose lives are greatly in turmoil and disarray, become much more open to receiving truth. When people’s lives are comfortable, and they are at ease, their spiritual hunger is greatly diminished.

Men and women in prison are experiencing such turmoil and upheaval. They are therefore comparatively more hungry to be fed spiritual food from the Father’s table than those who are not experiencing the same level of upset. An hour is coming, however, when the entire nation of America, and the world, will enter into very troublesome days. These things are not far off.

I encourage you to be storing up grain in your home that you might feed others in that day, and also take advantage of the opportunities to minister to those who are hungry at this present hour. I encourage you to print out the PARABLES BOOKSHELF. There is new material on the front and back covers, and in between are words of life and truth that the church is not finding presented to them in this hour, except in rare situations. These teachings are suitable for use for conducting home Bible studies, and I know of one man in prison who has already been using them there to conduct Bible studies with others.

Consider the spiritual application of the following Scripture.

Proverbs 21:13
He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered.

People can be impoverished both physically and spiritually. If you have an abundance of spiritual things and do not share with those who lack, will not Yahweh judge you as He would a man who had an abundance of material things who would not trouble himself to share with those who lacked the necessities of life?

Remember the words of Christ regarding the judgment. He said many would hear Him say, “I was hungry and you fed Me. I was naked and you clothed Me. I was in prison and you Visited Me.” These will respond, “When Lord?” His reply will be, “When you did it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you did it unto Me.”

I am fully persuaded that the Spirit of Christ has directed me to make these teachings available in this format to all those who have been receiving the teachings of this minister. Will you take what you have received and share it with others? This is ever the pattern of Christ. He took bread, blessed it and gave it to His disciples. Why? Not so that they could sit down and eat it alone. It was that they might distribute it to all those around who were hungry and fainting, for we read that Yahshua had compassion on the multitude.

A marvelous thing about the truths of Yahweh’s kingdom upon which we feed. As much as we give it away, we find that our basket is still full. There is plenty to give to all who are hungry, and there will be full baskets left over when we are through.

Luke 6:38
"Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."

Would you be increased in spiritual truth? Then walk in the light you have been given, and share that light in the world around you. Do not place your light under a bushel. Those who are faithful in little will be given more.

There are at present 14 issues of the PARABLES BOOKSHELF posted, and more will be put up weekly. I anticipate there being 100 or more when I am through with this work. This represents an abundance of spiritual food that others might feed upon. Ask the Spirit of Christ to guide you to those who are hungry, and then give them the sustenance they lack. You will be richer because you did.

On a practical note, I would suggest that sending two issues a week to those in prison would be a good number. You may want to create a checklist to keep track of what issues have been shared with various individuals. They are being posted in the order I believe would be suitable that a foundation might be laid first, and then more advanced teachings do follow.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

Note: as I post this, one of the links is not working (Issue 1.3.2), but this will be corrected shortly.
