Der Spiegel: Trump the World’s most dangerous man

30.January 2015: Donald Trump is the leader of a new, hate-filled authoritarian movement.

CZ6HvViWkAA5rEf
Blunt language from a leading German magazine.

Nothing would be more harmful to the idea of the West and world peace than if he were to be elected president. George W. Bush’s America would seem like a place of logic and reason in comparison.

A growing number of studies point to the devastating consequences of the many tackles in the game, in which players try to stop their opponents by throwing themselves at them head-first: brain trauma, depression, suicide. New rules have been created, and there are now stiffer penalties for the most glaring fouls.

“Believe me, I’ll change things. And again, we’re going to be so respected. I don’t want to use the word ‘feared,'” he told the audience. But that is precisely what Trump wants: to be feared. His bid for the White House, long ridiculed, is a fight for a ruthless, brutal America. Behind his campaign slogan “Make America great again!” is the vision of a country that no longer cares about international treaties, ethnic minorities or established standards of decency.

Trump wants to attack head-first again. The 69-year-old embodies a new harshness and brutality, and both a physical and emotional crudeness. Trump has launched an uprising of the indecent, one that is now much bigger than he himself, a popular movement of white, conservative America that after eight years under Democratic President Barack Obama, yearns for a leader who will usher in the counter-revolution.

My comment:

For all apostate evangelicals, Trump is the new hope for America. For all who still believe in the Bible, Trump seems to be the ultimate fulfillment of prophecies. The very downfall of the civilized man, just before the return of the Messiah.

All who love Jesus, can not be, and are not lovers of the World. We cry out for His second coming. Those who love the World, are enemies of God of the Bible. They don’t mind the language used by Trump. In this way they support the movement that will eventually hail the coming rule of the antichrists.

The rise of Donald Trump, is a consequence of all the lies told by the ruling elite in Washington D.C. The Americans do not trust people who portray Barack Hussein Obama as a “Christian”. In stead of removing the Muslim con man Obama from office, the establishment have hailed him.

Mark 13:19
because those will be days of distress unequalled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equalled again.

Jesus the Messiah warned us about horrible times, as we approach His second coming. What better man to fulfill this promise, than Donald Trump. Who insults his fellow republicans, make fun of disabled people, trash a female journalist because of her monthly period, call Mexicans rapists, and use filthy language in every second sentence.

Endorsed by, among others the KKK, Trump represent the return of the Fascists. This time they will rule from Washington D.C.

May Jesus have mercy on all deceived souls.

  1. Ha, what a bunch of bull. What Trump will do is try to bring some honesty back to America. Notice all the corrupt politicians and lying media against him? Pulling even the KKK out of the woodwork to slander him? The corrupt fear him because he has 10 billion dollars and their money can’t buy him. Go Trump

    First on the agenda is change the laws so that media can be held liable for slandering people. That is definitely Christian. Do not bare false witness against your neighbor. And You Ivarjfeld should do the same as much as you preach repentence.

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom and love in Jesus.

      Its seems I hit the nail on the head.

      There is still hope. Since 60-65 per cent of the Republicans do not rally behind a Trump ticket. Many of them will not vote for Trump, if forced, but rather for Hillary Clinton.

      1. True evangelicals would rather have neither Trump or Hillary, as I’m sure you would agree. What real choice have voters been given? None! The lesser of two evils is still evil. What a dilemma for America.
        Simply put, it looks like judgment is coming upon the United States, to have reached such a debased state of affairs! Trump will be the next Obama, given the way he seems to be so “magically” flying in on a “Messianic” flying carpet so mysteriously just as Obama did. No one could explain why, it was bizarre.
        Trump seems to be the epitome of everything ugly in America, rich, increased in goods and in need of nothing, but poor, wretched, naked and blind, not to mention, vulgar and arrogant.
        We no longer have honorable, godly statesmen who are qualified to be the head of state in this country. This is very very foreboding. Christians must be willing to be walking very close to Yeshua as in Psalm 91 not running after some politician to save the country, (them). It’s all in the bible, folks. May the Lord Jesus bless you

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Thanks for this comment, and thanks for your blessings. It will keep me as a watchman also at Trump Towers.

        It is strange, when claimed to be Evangelicals believe the second comming of Jesus is fare, fare away into a distant future. Bible reading Christians, should not fail to see the writings on the wall. The signs of our times, points towards the end of the age. We are very, very close to the end game between the antichrists and Jesus the Messiah.

        Who the last and final antichrist is, or will be, can still be debated.

        But why is it taboo to claim Mr. Trump is a fullfilment of prophecies?

        Do any candidate fit better into 2.Timothy 3, one and onwards?

        But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

        (end of scriptue).

        Those who support Trump should take a look in the mirror.

        Hillary Clinton is another matter. She is an apostate, religious Methodist, who concider the Word of God to be of lesser value than the UN charter. If she becomes President, we will just get more of what we already have. The great falling away is on.

      3. I came out of the RCC. Loved your website but I disagree with you here. Have been SAVED since 1978. I voted Trump because I as well as a ton of Born Again Christians (NOT deceived either) DO NOT want a horrible horrible horrible woman that professes to kill babies in the womb right before birth in the highest office of the Land. We do not look to Trump as Savior. We want a person that is against Abortion and will appoint a Supreme Court justice that is decent too and not a horrible liberal. You sound very liberal to me…and you cannot say that millions of Christians that voted their conscience are wrong. To stay home and not vote…was a vote for Killary. Why God put Trump in office will play out in time. These are the end of times. But he is appointing decent men in his Cabinet and saving jobs so far and he’s not even sworn in yet. I think you should keep your nose out of USA politics and keep posting photos and articles against the False Prophet of Rev 13 pope Frankie. God bless.

      4. Dear Karen Casey.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        My reply:

        If you are honest with your self, Trump has made his money on gambling, liqur and prostitution. His talks are filthy, provocative and unresonable. Still Trump can repent. But I have not seen any sign of repentance. Have you seen any?

        There is a possiblity that the reign of the last antichrist, might be linked to the Trump administration. That should be a topic that no one should “keep their nose out off”….

      5. Hi Karen,

        I opted not to vote. Because both choses for our presidency were simply not good candidates. And in case your wonder, I didn’t vote for Obama’s two term presidency either…I saw no good candidates there as well. Thank God, it hasn’t come to the point where we are forced to vote, because honestly I’d close my eyes, turn around and simply point.

        God Bless,

        Gloria

    1. Dear Nannette

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I am not a Republican. I am not a US Citizen, and can not vote. But I would like to continue to sleep at night. The thought of having Donald Trump in the White House, will give many people nightmares, also Americans. To have Hillary Clinton there, is not exactly ideal. But any day better. I understand the dillema, of being forced to chose between two evils.

      I hope you do not have too. I still hope Ted Cruz will be able to stop Trump. If so, I hope he will beat Hillary.

      1. Dear Nannette

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Please do not link up such speculative articles. I am not at all a fan of Marco Rubio, but we all did strange things during our college days. Billy boy (Clinton) continued to do strange things, even inside the Oval Office….

  2. Trump is in the hotel business, making people sleep comforably is his thing. What specifically do you think Trump will do, pull the troops out of the middle east?

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      The problem is that no one knows what Donald Trump will do. Not even Trump him self. He just walks around and insult people, and boost about his money. I can not phantom that anyone who believe in Jesus, can support such a charracter.

      1. Mat_19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

  3. It shows good business skills to be such a successful businessman. He seems to have valid reasons to criticise those he criticizes, casting light on them. Jesus did the same thing, casted light on darkness, error and sin Jesus said “I am the light of the world” because he shows us the error of our ways. Some take offence and feel insulted, others change their ways thankfully.

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Your defense for Donald Trump seems to fall short of Biblical relevance. That is my main concern.

      The Bible says, “Love of Money, is the root of all kinds of evil”. How do that fit into the casino, bar’s and hotels of Mr. Trump?

      And his supporters, who feel that since all the mafio bosses, and gambling Americans, have blssed him with a couple of billion US dollars, is such a “successful businessman”?

      What do Jesus say about those who hail such a man, who look down on people who can not, or will not contribute to such a “jack pot manager”?

  4. shalom- thank you, thank you Ivar for your voice in this! I wont dare consider Clinton a viable alternative to Trumpet,but members of Republican elite do. And so it goes; snakes eat other snakes, our stupid republicans eat their own tail- a fool and his money are soon parted however..

  5. I believe in none of these people. I believe in my Lord and Saviour, Jesus The Christ! I have nothing to fear and will sleep well at night KNOWING Who really is in charge! I was born an American citizen but I am a daughter of the Most High! There is nothing anyone on earth can do to take that away! They can have there world and believe it is going to save them! We who know WHO LIVES AND REIGNS are safe and well protected for eternity! THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!! HE LIVES AND REIGNS FOREVER AND EVER!

  6. Jesus Christ wants to use trump as an example to bend his knees and declare him as Lord Jesus Christ as Savior the Holy Spirit and the power of Jesus Christ could do this with that strike a revival like everybody talks about a revival. amen .

  7. Ivar,
    The apostate evangelical’s as you refer to them as is a good way to put it. The solid evangelicals that
    Are not judgemental but discerning
    See right through Trump. They are
    People who vote a biblical conscience. What causes the confusion among evangelicals is
    You have prominent names among
    Evangelicals who have endorsed Trump. Ie Jerry Falwell Jr the chancellor and president of Liberty
    University claiming that he believes Trump is a Christian because he’s good to his family and his workers.
    Trump spoke at Liberty convocation
    And in his speech he said”what the Hell” three times. I mean does he not know his audience? These were Christian students at the event. He received little to know
    Applause. When Bernie sanders
    Spoke there at least he did not
    Use course language. At the primary elections in Virginia he only
    Received 90 votes from the 10,000
    Students thAt voted at Liberty. They sent a clear message to
    Their chancellor that they disGreed
    With his endorsement. I believe if
    It is an election between HillAry
    And Trump, solid Evangelicals
    Will not vote this causing Trump to loose. They will be blamed for his defeat

  8. Every mob movie I ever saw every mob boss had a catholic mothers. That would put Cruz closer to the mob bosses.

    But seriously. you see how the status quo supports the “New American Century” Rubios dying words as he promised a “New American Century” . Who do you think is the “moral authority” they are talking about in the New American Century? Who did Obama call the “moral authority”, who did Bush call the “moral authority”. None other than the Pope. Corrupt politicians like Rubio who take bribes selling houses to lobbyists at jacked up prices. Secretly ruining the country with the popes twisted policies. In one hand running the drug trade and in the other throwing their victims in prisons. That is the real evil.

  9. What your telling me is you won’t be able to sleep at night if Trump is president because he made his money running a casino? Only Jesus as a president would allow you to sleep but Hillary is close enough?

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I would like to continue to sleep well at night. With a man like Donald Trump as President, we can not be sure that the boss will listen to people who have more knowledge, and are more competent than him self.

      Facing complicated situations, when wisdom is required, Trump might just pull the trigger. Trump is capable of doing anything. Der Spiegel has hit the nail on the head. We have seen many men like Trump in world history, leading their flock off the cliff.

      And why do any decent man, want a President who have a habit of insulting others? And who use filthy language?

  10. You’re awful vague there. Can you add any specifics? Trump might not bow down and listen to the pope and his Jesuit planners? Might not go along with the New American Century plans with the pope as the worlds moral authority?

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      To bring up the Pope and the Jesuits, is a non starter. This is not the issue. The problem is the flimsy character of Mr. Trump, his insults and constant boasting about being a billionair. Like Hitler, he leads a rebellion from the downtown bar. And the people who take pleasure in their sins, love it!.

  11. You want us to turn a blind eye to it, Perhaps you protest too much with your anti-catholicism. The only thing America has to fear is the money changers pulling the rug out from under them sending 17 trillion in debt crashing on their heads. The money changers who love lies and secrets, working in darkness. Is it any wonder the Vatican is so good at covering up? Who do we see at the Federal reserve bank except for 1 or 2 people, the rest is as secret as the Vatican bank. That is until a whistleblower cries money laundering then disappears from the face of the earth.

  12. I find it interesting to read in Ivars comment

    “All who love Jesus, can not be, and are not lovers of the World. We cry out for His second coming. Those who love the World, are enemies of God of the Bible”.

    If we are concerned about who succeeds in this campaign, then we are revealing something about ourselves.

    Matt 13 verse 22

    22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

    As we watch events unfold we can observe individuals who claim to be Christian display characteristics that reveal that they have allowed the cares of this world to affect them and make them unfruitful.

    Habakkuk 1
    5 ” Look among the nations and watch — Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.

    Mark 13

    37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

    All the candidates believe their own words, all of them believe they can put their country on the right path, but none of them can.

    Whoever finally gets into the Whitehouse will need our prayers, calling upon the Almighty to watch over them and the decisions they make on behalf of those they govern.

    Those who understand that they are in this world but not of this world should understand that who is elected to govern in this age is of no consequence, just as their Saviour has yet to return to establish His Kingdom, they to wait to become kings or lords in His Kingdom, not of this age, but of the age to come.

  13. “Those who love the world do not love me” The “world” sure doesn’t love Trump so he must be doing something right.

    Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

    See, we should struggle against darkness, struggle against those in power who call the pope our heavenly authority, our moral authority.

    1. Peace to you Edward.

      There are those in the world who love Mr Trump. My limited understanding is, the candidates drop out as the more popular candidates gain a greater share of the votes.

      Mr Trump believes he has identified the cause of the nations problems and has presented solutions which appear to appeal to a lot of voters.

      The system demands that candidates have to have either personal wealth or access to funds that will cover the expenses of their campaign, as the candidates present themselves, their support wanes as they reveal how they would address serious issues.

      Mr Trump has personal wealth which means he is not having to answer to sponsors.

      Ephesians 6 verse 12 is apt in this discussion.

      Mr Trump is flesh and blood, he is just a man who sees his country going in a direction he doesn’t like. He has the personal wealth to fund a race to the Whitehouse and he believes if he succeeds he can address these problems and make his country great once more.

      The verse reveals that other forces are at work, Mr Trump has no authority over those forces, in fact he is a target of those forces and no amount of money can stop him being used by those forces to do what they want him to do.

      It doesn’t matter who gets into office, because they are of this world, in this world and love this world, they are all potentially at risk of falling under the influences of those forces.

      Being concerned that we might be unable to sleep because a certain individual resides in the Whitehouse reveals more about the author than the successful candidate.

      Matthew 13
      22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

      The above verse tells us about individuals who have heard the gospel and at the same time hears current affairs, this mixture of information chokes many of the truths contained in the Word and the individual becomes unfruitful.

      Mr Trump is simply a man who believes he can sort things out, who has the means to promote himself and his solution.

  14. No it says a combination of cares of the world and the decietfullness of riches, basically saying when money and power corrupt them they become unfruitful.

    1. You are correct in what you say.

      Now put Mr Trump into the picture.

      He claims to be a Christian.

      Matthew 13
      22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

      As he claims he’s Christian he must have received some scripture from someone, but being a man of the world with ambition, that has choked the word and made him the man he is today.

      Mr Trump is bound by his desire to be rich and successful in this life, it is this drive that makes him want the presidency.

      1. Dear Allistar.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        If Trump is a Christian, you can believe in any kind of fairy tale, and make it to Heaven.

  15. Ever ask this guy that writes this BLOG where all this REAL truth comes from? Well see we all to some degree KNOW our truth is the real truth. So this is why Gifts as in healing or tongues is.. of the DEVIL! Then to others its for today and alive and well. So take Trump here.. ask this guy how many HOURS did he/she pray about this before posting. Ask ..so where did all this PROOF come from? Not from God thats a fact.

    This “exposed”.. has nothing what so ever to do with Christ. Well this guy is not prophet or Apostle. I am going out on a limb here and say he/she never meet anyone they “expose” talk evil negative of. Never prayed with them.. never called them up to here there side. No.. his/her PROOF is from the WORLD as in TV NEWS or some other person they agree with. So just WHO can say “Jesus came in flesh born of the virgin Mary. Died on the cross for the worlds sins was buried. Rose the 3rd day and is the ONLY way to the Father and it is by the BLOOD IF JESUS we are washed and saved”.. you think any one can? You think any demon can? NO! Only by the sweet sweet spirit of GOD be IN THEM. You think YOUR SIN is some how what.. a WHITE sin..not so bad? It is also written we all have sin.. if we say we have no sin.. we deceive our selfs and the truth is NOT in us. So you keep pointing fingers and NOT be praying for those you think are lost in sin.. you see something they are in error of and you think GOD showed you so you BETTER be loving them forgiving them. Praying praying.. HOURS every day. You posted this for the WORLD TO SEE.. .so if you are in error.. God help you. For to HIM and to HIM alone will you have to answer. And know this.. there is no time there so when HE shows us how we hurt Him what we didnt do for others that HE did for us.. it would have been far greater to learn it here. Call me wrong.. means nothing.. changes nothing.

    you are just like those you fall false.. oh and false prophet.. yeah.. to be that you HAVE to be a prophet. And false never meant they were wrong all the time. Many times they were right. False because they said GOD SAID IT…and He never did. Let me guess….YOU HAVE THE REAL TRUTH and if people dont believe follow YOU they are wrong? Do you know how satan fell? PRIDE!

    1. Dear Mar.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Welecome to News That Matters.

      I feel we do not need many hours of prayers, to post something about Donald Trump. What is not obvious to a lot of religious people, is plain common sense to most of others. We just need to watch Trump for a few moments on TV, listen to his messages.

      You are right that pride is a problem among Christians. I also do struggle with pried. I always thanks Jesus for His rebukes, and all awesome moments of dicipline.

  16. Ivar, you are a liar and a deciever. You are a puppet of the antichrist jews who murdered the Lord of glory. Since you live in Norway(or maybe really Florida) what business is it of yours who we elect.
    I am sure you believe that Ted Cruz really is a homosexual, I mean Baptist. Naw, you just support whoever the money people tell you to support. Anyone you do not want to be president must be a good man. Trump is going to stop the neocon jews who are destroying America with their wars of conquest and annhilation of the palestinians, especially the Christian Palestinians.
    You have shown your true colors again. Especially when you agree with Der Spiegel.

    1. Dear John daughtery.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I just keep your last message for some time, to display what kind of feedback I get. Do not bother to write another comment. This was your last one. Please find another forum to debate, and may Jesus Messiah have mercy on your soul. Amen.

  17. shalom- please john, edward,allistair- could you please point me to a saving faith in Jesus please?
    I am not worthy-
    Please, could you gently lead me to the way of the cross of Calvary?
    I beg you- eternal souls hang in the balance as to the perception of christians bereft of any Holy Spirit; perhaps it can be said of some of the commentors here, of which Psalm chapter 1 could be aptly applied.

    1. Peace to you Bruce.

      Psalm 1 NKJ
      Psalms 1
      1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
      2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
      3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
      4 The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
      5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
      6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

      There are some key words in the Psalm you draw our attention to.

      Verse 1 A man is blessed if he seeks godly counsel and not the counsel of the ungodly.

      Study Gods Word to learn the characteristics a godly person should have, ask God to instill them in you.

      Verse 2. Reveals, a godly man delights in the law of the LORD, He is dedicated to meditating on it daily.

      You then must meditate on Gods law and learn to live in it with joy.

      Verse 3. As a tree in the natural world living next to water, has plump leaves. You, living close to Living Water will become spiritually healthy and spiritually prosperous.

      Verse 4. Though ungodly people may at first appear to be full of knowledge, over time they will dry up and be blown away. If you meditate on the Word and learn to be a doer, you will not be one of these.

      Verse 5 Perseverence will give you the confidence that you will be among the congregation of the righteous.

      Verse 6. If we become doers of the Word, we have hope in the Lord that He will consider us Righteous for our belief in Him, just as He considered Abraham righteous because he believed.

      22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

      There are those who hear but do not do, and there are those who think they are doers, but do not do what the Bible teaches.

      Each of us has to work it out, each of us has to meditate on the Word and, when we find an instruction to do, we must do it.

      Thou shall not steal, don’t steal, thou shall not kill, don’t kill.

      Depending on where the Lord leads you in the study of His Word, you will find instruction, follow the instructions, become a doer and avoid deceiving yourself.

      May God bless you in your search for the narrow gate.

      1. thank you Alistair- your peaceful response to me tells me you seem to love your neighbor as yourself as well.

  18. See Bruce, I wouldn’t have given you a response like that since it’s obvious you’re trying to get someone to dance like your puppet on a string. Step one, as with all things is to BE REAL. Then you will find your way to the saving grace of Jesus.

    1. Peace to you Edward.

      Shall we get real?

      If you read my response to Bruce you will note that nothing I wrote can lead him to Christ.

      The truth is, no-one can lead anyone into a relationship with Christ.

      John 6 verse 44

      44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

      John 6 verse 37

      37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

      The One Jesus called “Father” is in control.

      Bruce quoted scripture I therefore expanded on what he already knew.

      The Lord Jesus Christ does offer hope however to all.

      John 14 verses 12 to 14

      12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
      13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
      14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

      Anyone who believes and asks will have their prayers answered, they do not need another human to do the praying.

      The One Jesus called Father can see into the heart of man.

      Therefore if Bruce’s reason for asking is for anyother reason than a desire for closeness with the Lord Jesus Christ, the Father will know about it.

      1. Dear Alistar

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        No one can lead anyone to Jesus….?

        This must be your own experience. You are really filled with a religious spirit, who has blinded you.

        Why at all share the gospel with other people? Why mentor them, and baptize them?

        Since you can not explain what salvation is, you have obviously had very litle respons. You need to be born again, and walk in the power of the resurrection.

      2. Hello Ivar.

        Take a look at one of the earliest accounts in your Bible.

        The Ethiopean sat in the chariot reading Isaiah.

        Acts 8 verse 21 onward.

        The Holy Spirit stirred Philip to go. He found the Ethiopean reading, the Ethiopean did not know of whom he was reading. Philip explained, the Ethiopean believed and was Baptised.

        All of this took place in one go, no mentoring over time to prepare for Baptism and once Baptised Philip left the Ethiopean to continue on his merry way.

        The Ethiopean had no-one to fellowship with nor had ongoing counselling from an Apostle.

        No human evangelised to the Ethiopean before hand, Just as Jesus pointed out in scripture, all those God gives Him He will accept.

        It all happened by the power of the Holy Spirit as God was watching over His Word which was being read by the Ethiopean.

        God has not changed, He still works the same way.

      3. Dear Alsitar.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You miss the whole point. Philip was explaining the book of Isaish to the enuk. Litterally leading him to Jesus. The Bible is silent on what took place from the enuk belived, till he was baptized.. But surley, he did not baptize him self. Based on his expressed new faith in Jesus the Messiah, he was baptized. He was lead to “Christ”.

        Philip was lead by the Holy Spirit:

        Act 8:29:
        The Spirit told Philip, ‘Go to that chariot and stay near it.’

        It looks like Philip, kept on explaining the gospel along the road. The ritual of baptism did not emerge out of the blue.

        Act 8:36-38.

        As they travelled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, ‘Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptised?’ And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptised him.

      4. The Eunuch was reading Isaiah which today forms part of the Canon, Gods Word. God watches over His Word and sees into the hearts of men.

        God knew what the Eunuch desired and sent Philip to explain, the Eunuch was being drawn by God long before Philip arrived. Philip was a witness to the truth and the Eunuch believed.

        You believe Philip led the Eunuch to Christ, I believe what the scripture teaches.

        God was drawing the Eunuch, the Eunuch needed a witness and God sent Philip to him.

        If you believe you can lead a person to Christ, then the Christ you are leading people to, might not be Christ the Son of the Living God, but a counterfeit.

        Because Christ said, no man can come to me unless the Father who sent me, draws him.

        Simple really.

        And yes this has been my experience.

        Out of the blue at 48 years old I was drawn to reading the Bible.

        When I had read it and seen things that I had seen when I was 8 years old, I then received a witness to that truth, and that is why I believe what is written over what some teach as truth.

      5. There is a difference between being a witness and contending for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.

        Just as the Lord Jesus Christ taught in the parable of the sowere, we can speak the truth.

        Sometimes it will fall on deaf ears, sometimes it will be received readily at first but not take root.

        We are not necessarily to know where the Word will take root, grow to maturity and bear good fruit.

        As it is one man reaps what another has sown.

  19. no Edward, its because you being real, really don’ t know how to Love anybody here without being the puff adder with your words; your comments over the various topic forums are attack, Attack! Someone who doesn’t know Christ at all surely will not be won over to Him due to your snide remarks- Psalm 1 for you especially.

    1. Dear Bruce

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You are right. Anyone, who know and love Jesus, will never ignore, nor attack a man who search for the Messiah. We will desire, from the bottom of our hearts, to be used by our Lord to bring light to darkness. So that all searching souls will find Him.

      Related to people, who have rejected the gospel, and do only confuse or obstruct the twist the truth, I will show no mercy. Thre was nothing that made Jesus more angry, than learned men who had reduced them selves to blunt hypocrites.

      Edward is like the prodigal son. He needs to return to the body of the Messiah. To attend Bible studies, and become accountable.

  20. and so you knowEdward, if you are Christ’s truly then ye are His bondservant. seek ye to sever the cords that bound you so called? If you cannot get into role to win Anybody who asks you for the hope of your calling to Christ, the bear that panics you into flight may lead you to hide behind the wall where a snake will ambush you.. shalom

  21. You just don’t understand. If someone asked me in earnest I would do my best. But you asked me to test me. Satan himself tried to test Jesus, tempting him to dance on his string but Jesus would have none of it, “if you are the son of God do such and such to prove it” , but Jesus refused and also says “that which you’ve done to the least of my people, you have done unto me. And so I do not feel obligated to dance on anybody’s string, except the Lord’s himself.

  22. edward, i did ask you earnestly. yu cannot commit to the request ad someone confident in the hope of your calling to God in Christ Jesus. This is a fellowship of believers in this forum; and you play the univited guest. i have every right to ask you the reason of your Faith due to Your attacking my brothers and sisters Who are in accord with One mind, One baptism, think you to call me Satan?

    1. Peace to you Bruce.

      This a forum, but it is a blog.

      Ivar posts comment and we discuss.

      I would not call it a fellowship of believers but there are believers making comment.

      All who read must learn to discern, all who comment should do so with respect.

  23. Bruce, you are a liar like Satan. In one breath you claim you asked in earnest, but in the next breath you claim you are one of the believers. If you are a believer, why did you try to convince people you felt “unworthy”, then ask them to help you to believe?

    Jeremiah 9:8 Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks deceitfully. With their mouths they all speak cordially to their neighbors, but in their hearts they set traps for them.

    1. Dear Edward.

      Bruce wrote: “shalom- please john, edward,allistair- could you please point me to a saving faith in Jesus please?”

      My comment:

      I sometimes ask people to explain me the gospel. That should be done as a routine towards strangers who claim to be Christians, a way to see if the person is saved or not. People who can not exmpain what salvation is, or how to be saved, are not saved. Edward, Your accusation against Bruce proves his point. You need to humble your self, read the Bible and attend a local fellowship of Christians.

  24. hello allistair- it should be noted that it is in very poor taste to derail peaceful discussions of biblical topics meant to edify and exhort Believers with a capital B. Additionally, this blog is not intended to behave with lukewarmness with every passing doctrine, wherever the wind shall blow so as to not risk nor offend some. To suggest fairness and shrug shoulders for balance in modicum is not contendingthe faith. To be shown over and over the love and peace of Yeshua in fellowship yet remain rejected is to slap the sandals together and break fromthee. Shalom.

    1. Dear Bruce.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      News That Matters is an open blog, for debates related to the Christian faith. The blog is founded on a principle of strong defense of the state of Israel, and support of the Jewsh people. News That Matters stands firmly behind the lesson of the Reformation, and comtinue to expose the papacy. Let the true Messiah be honored.

      The debate on News That Matters sometimes get hot. I my self can use stern language. But I do not tolerate filthy langauges, cursing, threats and promotion of violence.

    2. Hello Bruce.

      2 Timothy 3 verses 16 & 17

      16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
      17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

      If we spend our time edifying and exhorting then we leave out part of the purpose.

      It can be equally important to correct, in order to become complete and equipped.

      Lets look at a partial quote of yours.

      “not contending the faith”.

      Should we simply contend for the faith?

      Or

      Jude 1
      3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.

      The faith which was once for all delivered to the saints, is not the one that came out of the Reformation.

      That was an event in history where the authority of the Papacy was called into question and the Lutheran Protestant church was born.

      1. Dear Alistar

        My reply:

        You just proved my last point. You are religious, and very confused. Now also you appear to be universal, a true Catholic.

      2. Peace to you Ivar

        You wrote

        You are religious, and very confused. Now also you appear to be universal, a tru Catholic.

        My reply.

        You don’t know me, nor I you.

        I find it interesting to be considered ‘universal’ and ‘a tru Catholic’.

        Since universal and catholic mean the same thing perhaps it is simple to address.

        I have never been Catholic, I have never been Protestant either.

        My parents attended Chapel when I was young but I never really agreed with all they taught though I had read the Bible to some extent and found they did not preach what it said.

        Correct me if I’m wrong but Jesus did say

        John 6
        37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

        44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

        65 And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

        I was in a situation when I was 8 years old, told that I was destined for hell if I didn’t accept Christ as my personal saviour.

        Not one of the Apostles said this when they preached the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, the gospel that Jesus sent them out into the world to preach.

        They simply preached what they were told to, and those who heard believed and were baptised.

        If believing that Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever and that what He says is true, makes me religious so be it.

        Confused I am not.

    1. Dear Bruce

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      News That Matters is not a closed forum for believers. We have Orthodox Jews commenting on a regular basis, and even some Roman Catholic priests.

      I do warn people when they do not follow the spirit of a fair debate, and eventually spam them. Most of those who have been spamed are false Christians. After my grace has reached the limit, they are told to pack up and leave.

  25. Ivar, you didn’t copy everything Bruce wrote, typical. He said he was “unworthy” which was the major tip off he was full of IT. You should not put people to the test either Ivar. Two wrongs do not make it right. Judge not and you won’t be judged.
    Fellowship is not what saves. Look at the two thieves who were crucified next to Christ, what fellowship did they have?

    1. Dear Edward.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Bruce should feel free to be both ironical, and to trigger any kind of respons from you. The responsibility of reacting like a Christian, is fully with you.

      In regards, to your refusal to join a Christian fellowship. This is clear cut heretical. It is not a matter of salvation. It is a matter of obeying the Messiah you claim you know. He calls His followers to join fellowships, and beocme a part of His body on the face of the Earth. You live in rebellion. If you are not a part of the body, you will walk into errors. And can eventually, loose your salvation. Read about how to bear fruits!….

  26. The Christian response is the truthful response. Bruces’s games are not appropriate for the Lord and not appropriate for me. He asked how to be worthy, so i told him what I thought. What did the theif who was bound for hell say? “if you are the Son of God save yourself and save us”. He was playing games and went to hell, But the other one who got wise and didn’t play games was worthy to be saved.

  27. hello Allistair. the essence of Gospel is the good news. what good news? why would the martyrs of 1 st century lay the life down if not for the saving of sinners from hell. Jehovah witnesses don’ t believe in hell, neither do you as you steer clear of the word ” hell”. It must be offensive to remember those days in church when the conviction of the Holy Spirit pleaded with you to be saved. It must be well for you to steer directly into mainstream inclusivity, content that religious application alone is sufficient and somehow the unconverted will meander through life into the most narrow of spaces spiritually.

    1. Hello Bruce.

      Gospel means ‘Good News’.

      It is indeed Good News that Jesus was born of Mary as the Prophets foretold, is the Christ the Son of the Living God. He went like a lamb to the slaughter, His blood shed for the sins of the world, not just mine, Ivars yours and those who contribute to this blog, but the world.

      But the Gospel Jesus Christ preached was the Gospel of the Kingdom of God

      Matthew 4
      23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

      Matthew 9
      35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

      Mark 1
      14 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

      There is no evidence of the hearers of this Gospel being threated with hell if they did not believe.

      The Bible reveals that those who believed this Gospel were baptised and in some cases tells us how many believed.

      The Bible teaches that this Gospel will continue to be preached up to the end.

      Matthew 24
      14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

      We live in the last days, the hour is late.

      There are those who preach a gospel “about” Christ, and there are a few who preach the Gosple that Jesus Christ preached.

      Having heard the good news of the Kingdom of God the words of the Lords prayer take on new meaning.

      Thy Kingdom come.

      Jesus will return to establish that Kingdom, that is the Good News that Jesus Christ preached.

      Though those who heard Him preach it are now at rest, they wait the resurrection to eternal life in the Kingdom of God.

      1. Dear Allistair

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        To be permitted to continue to comment on this site, you will have to answer these two questions:

        1. Are you a Jehova Witness?
        2. Do you believe that Jesus is God eternal, the Creator. Equally God as the Father?

      2. Dear Allistar.

        Shalom and love in Jesus.

        Thanks for a quick reply. If Jesus was before Abraham, was not question number two. Many men walked on the face of the Earth before Abraham. Kindly answer my question.

      3. Peace to you Ivar.

        When Jesus said before Abraham was, I Am. The Jews were offended. Why?

        The Jews knew who ‘I Am” was.

        You on the other hand do not.

        The Jews knew because of what God told Moses to say “tell them I Am sent you”.

        I Am, the One Who is.

        I answered your question, you did not see the significance of the words used in the answer.

      4. Dear Allistair.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You are confused, confuse others, and you do not understand what salvation is. That God died on the cross on Calvary Hill in Jerusalem, to save us. Its finished. Victory!. That any man can be saved today. Eternal life is today. We have already crossed over from death to life. All who believe this walk in the power of His resurrection.

        You have not answered my question. Since I am (I am not the Creator God). the editor of News Than Matters, I will not permitt you to continue commenting on this blog.

  28. if trump become next president we will have world war 3 with nuclear war.
    if u ant pease wote for anyone exept trump
    if u want a nuclear war with washington the new hiroshima wote trump

    1. Dear Jason.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I like people who debate on the concerned article, and dont derail the debate into other issues.

      Why is Donald Trump so dangerous?

      Like Hitler, he has said, in respons to questions about use ot torture: “The soldiers will do as I say”. Trump feel he is above the law, and is capable of doing anything. Also use nuclear weapons, the day his mood is in the destrcutive modus. He talk as a classical futher war criminal and dictator.

      1. Dear all readers.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Allistair refused to answer a question from the editor. I have spammed his last message. Till I see a willingness to follow the rules set by the editor of this webforum, he will not return.

        If anyone desire to continue to debate with him, let me know.

  29. Donald Trump is hard for Europeans to understand, as is America itself. America is an individualist country, and Americans like successful businessmen. Most of the posts about Trump seemed to reflect the idea that we can’t vote for Trump due to some swearing in a speech or two, or that he owned Casinos, or you can buy alcohol in his casinos! Get real, fellow Christians. In 1980 many Christians put forth similar arguments that Ivar and others make now against Ronald Reagan. Christian would say he can’t be supported by any good Christian as he was a divorced man who made his living from the evil den of iniquity known as Hollywood. Christians can’t be actors, etc. Yet Reagan was a wonderful president. Jesus is not on the ballot, and he would be the only candidate that would tick all the boxes for a good many Christians on this blog.. Let’s skip the personalities and ad hominem attacks about Trump being a fake Christian. Or Christians will say, stay out of politics, because Satan is the God of this world, Jesus is the only leader we can trust and he will return soon. So let’s just vote for Hillary. This is abandonment theology, this American Christian won’t buy it. I love my country as an American, and Hillary would finish what Obama has started. she will bring in hundreds of thousands of Muslims each year. she is little different in this instance from “momma Merkel. She let our ambassador to Lybia die.and lied about it. The real bottom line is that Trump is a Nationalist. The other candidates are all NWO shills, and that includes Ted Cruz. Trump will tear up all the garbage “free trade” treaties that have sent the most of our industry to China, He will build a wall, and deport the 30 million illegal aliens, which will include a fair few million Moslems. He will keep the peace between Russia and the USA, Hillary would lead us into war with Russia, which would go nuclear. This will set back the Illuminati NWO plans by a century or more. Bravo, and he has my vote. he will be president, and the world will actually be more peaceful. so deal with it Europeans!

    1. Dear Thomas P. Fischer

      Shalom and love in Jesus.

      To compare Ronald Reagen and Donald Trump is missing the mark. I do not mind having a non Christian President in the USA. There have been many. But I do not want to have Trump. Not because of his religious attitudes, or lack of such. But because of his character, his insults and filthy language.

      Reagan united the Republican party. Trump is about to destroy it.

  30. I know you have bought into the lies of the left to think that Donald Trump is a “Hater”. Put away the tv.

  31. This is very interesting but more so extremely sad…I see Christian Brothers and sisters fighting about minor issues and judging from what they can see with their eyes…God sees the heart and i am but a sinner saved by the grace of God so who am I to condemn you I cannot see your heart or what you truly believe …everyone falls short of Gods standards but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord… a house divided against itself cannot stand…it’s time to come together as the saints of God and focus on the true adversary.. sadly it will only get worse before is gets better but come quickly Lord Jesus !!!.. I pray that maybe Christians of every background and belief that call on the name of the Lord can put aside petty arguments and join together to fight the good fight…. oh heavenly Father have mercy on us and forgive your people pour out your Holy Spirit to lead and guide us with wisdom and understanding to repentance and a real relationship with your beloved Son not a false religion that puffs us up with pride forgive us and unify us together in you just as you and the Father are perfect in one thanks be to the only wise king our only hope the only way to heaven the only truth to listen too the only life that can save us from death praise and glory to God Almighty in the name of Jesus amen…………………………….this will be my only comment I hope it gets thru I think it’s time to abandon the world of the internet and focus on the reality of Jesus Christ blessings to everyone and no matter who sits in the oval office remember who sits upon the throne!!!
