REGARDLESS OF what you feel about the attacks of September 11, 2001, there is no question that the events of that day changed the world forever. We remember those who responded to horrific situations with uncommon bravery and selfless sacrifice.
Also: Propaganda and the parallels with Orwell’s 1984; suicide bombing in Afghanistan; Dr. Michael Heiser’s presentation on the significance of Revelation 12 (link opens a QuickTime video); twisting prophecy to justify Dominionism; and wildfires in Texas.

I’m always surprised when Christians don’t point out that Romney like Glenn Beck is Mormon, who have really fringe beliefs (cult). Why is he a viable candidate at all?
– Book of Mormon supercedes the Bible
– Jesus and Satan spirit brothers
– God used to be a man on another planet
– There are many gods
– There is a mother god
– The trinity is three separate Gods:
– The birth of the Christ was natural
– no salvation outside the church of Latter-day Saints
– Jesus’ sacrifice was not able to cleanse all our sins
– Good works are necessary for salvation
– no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet
It’s called Political expedience.
Hey, Derek and Sharon!
Appreciate the heads up on Heiser’s presentation on the importance of September 11th. You know, his video is based on Dr. Ernest L. Martin’s book, “The Star That Astonished the World”, which was published in 1996 (second edition). It was in the fifth chapter of that book, where he wrote:
“The apostle John said this heavenly relationship occurred at the time of Jesus’ birth. And in 3 B.C.E. this exact combination of celestial factors happened just after sunset only on one day of the year. It was on September 11th. It could not have occurred at any other time of the year. Indeed, even one day before ― on September 10 ― the Moon would have been located above the Virgin’s feet with the crescent not visible, while one day farther ― on September 12 ― the Moon had moved too far beyond the feet of the Virgin, at least 25 diameters of the Moon east of her feet. Thus, only one day applies. That day was just after sunset on September 11th, 3 B.C.E.”
(Heiser even mentions “Martin’s book” at the 3:28 mark. The entire book is available online, legally and freely from the ASK site [www.askelm.com].)
Although Dr. Martin has passed away, David Sielaff handles things at ASK. I tried to get you to interview him about a year or so ago. You should hear what he has to say. Check out the lectures on the site.
I was wondering of Isaiah 30 means anything for 11 sept 2001
The Promise of God’s Grace to Israel
18 ¶ And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21 and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
23 ¶ Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.!!!!!!!!!!!
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
After this peace in the Bible you have The LORD’s Judgment on Assyria
Nowedays would Seria next in the rang of order?
I’ve read a little about the unanswered questions about 9/11. I must admit though that if there has been a coverup then why haven’t the uncontested masters of explosives i.e. the US Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force come to the fore with proof of a coverup. I suppose it’s better to believe that there was no coverup than to believe that the upper echelons of the US Military [or all the US Military] is involved in a coverup.
Wouldn’t be the first time the whole US Military was in on a cover up. Look up the Gulf of Tonkin and if you’re feeling real controversial look up claims that the US government knew about Pearl Harbor, oh and Lusitania.
Very thought provoking broadcast! I appreciate you drawing attention to Dr. Heiser’s presentation. I am going to spread this around and show it to others. Of course it reminds me of the DVD “The Star of Bethlehem” http://www.bethlehemstar.net/ I also find this a good presentation. (The fellow who made this would make a good guest on your show.)
One thought, if Saturn is present instead of Jupiter this seems to indicate many interesting references http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_%28mythology%29 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronus . Lots of food for thought in these and similar. Saturn seems to indicate a ‘dark’ reference. Maybe it has something to do with the AntiChrist.
