Blood Moon over New York City

Abigail and Dolley readers are quite familiar with the Blood Moons.  Throughout history, Blood Moons are perceived as an omen of pending judgement.  This picture was taken last evening by an photographer in New Jersey. (source)

Students of Bible Prophecy have been looking to the sky since the Blood Moon Phenomenon began on Passover in 2014.  After intense activity, the sky has been eerily quiet....

Can You Be a Christian and a Democrat?

Or restated, if you are a Democrat are you really a Christian?  Jesus was political, don't let anyone tell you he wasn't.  Let's define a Christian as someone who believes the Bible and when God's word contradicts man's desires, the Christian comes down on the side of God.  

1.  Leftists believe in abortion is a "right".  God's word says it is murder and that all life is of value (source)

2.  Leftists believe that Jerusalem belongs to the Palestinians.  God's word says that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. (source)

3.  Leftists believe a marriage is between people that love each other.  God's word defines a family as a man and a woman.  (Genesis 5:2)

4.  Leftists believe that rights come from the state.  God's word clearly defines that rights come from Him.  (source)

5.  Leftists are largely Humanists who believe that man is the center of the world.  God's word says that He is the center of the world.

This blog could go on and on, the positions held by the left are in direct contradiction with God's word on so many levels.  Gone are the days when a Democrat could easily be a Christian, now the tw are mutually exclusive.

Tragic Death or Blood Sacrifice - Stuart Sutcliffe

All religions require blood.  The religion of fame is no different.  In "The Night the Devil Came for John Lennon" we looked a the words of John Lennon to give compelling evidence that he made a pact with Satan.  Through thorough research into the occult, we find evidence that such deals are sealed in blood.  Their adherents are directed to do unspeakable things, from eating fecal matter, to bestiality, to bizarre and painful sexual rituals, to blood sacrifices. (source)  Was John's best friend part of the pact?  Was Stuart Sutcliffe the sacrifice or was he merely a casualty by association?  Perhaps he was just a life cut short.

(Author's note:  This piece is a bit different than other works I've done.  It deals with tales, innuendo, and circumstances rather than a cold presentation and examination of facts.  I'll leave it to the reader to make up their minds about whether or not the tragic death of the "fifth Beatle" Stuart Sutcliffe was anything other than a young life cut short.  I'm not convinced either way.)

Lennnon's Anti-Christian Sentiments - the Beginning:

Lennon Biographer, Joseph Niezgoda observers that Lennon became a virulent Anti-Christian after December 27, 1960 (source).  This date marks the first day the girls stormed the stage and Beatlemania began.  The story goes that in early December 1960, Lennon went down to the "Devil's Bridge of Rose Lane" and made a 20 year pact with the devil.  (source)


This hatred of Christianity became pronounced during the two years the Beatles spent in the seedy red light district of Hamburg Germany (Source).  They lived in squalor behind the screen of a pornography movie theater.

Philip Norman writes, "While in Hamburg, John, each Sunday would stand on the balcony, taunting the churchgoers as they walked to St. Joseph's. He attached a water-filled contraceptive to an effigy of Jesus and hung it out for the churchgoers to see. Once he urinated on the heads of three nuns."(Philip Norman, Shout! The Beatles in Their Generation, p. 152).

There were five of them, John, Paul, George, Pete Best, (the band's first drummer) and Lennon's college roommate, bassist Stuart Sutcliffe.  

Stuart Sutcliffe
Lennon's Relationship with Stuart:

Stuart was Lennon's first muse, followed by McCartney, and then Yoko Ono.  Stuart and John shared a room at Liverpool Art College.  Their relationship was deep and passionate by Lennon's own account.  Many suspected there was more than friendship going on between them.  Given what we know about the occult, it is not outside of the realm of possibility that the young Lennon was forced to show his loyalty by experimenting with homosexual sex.  Later in life, John allegedly admitted to a relationship with Stuart Sutcliffe (source).

The Violence of John Lennon:

In 2003, Sutcliffe's sister, Pauline Sutcliffe, said "I believe that the cerebral hemorrhage that cost Stuart his life was caused by an injury inflicted by John in a jealous rage. A postmortem revealed Stuart had a dent in his skull, as though from a blow or kick. And a few months earlier, John had viciously kicked my brother in the head in a sustained, unprovoked attack." (source)

The alleged attack on Stuart Sutcliffe was not the last time John Lennon would go into a murderous rage and almost kill someone.  After returning to Liverpool from Germany, Lennon was teased about being gay by DJ and friend of the band, Bob Wooler.  Lennon flew into a "blind rage, John proceeded to beat the stuffing out of a very surprised Bob Wooler, literally kicking him repeatedly in the ribs as he lay on the ground in a bloody heap.

According to John, the only reason he actually stopped the savage beating was because, “I realized I was actually going to kill him…  I just saw it like a screen. If I hit him once more, that’s really going to be it. I really got shocked and for the first time thought: ‘I can kill this guy.'” (source).

Sutcliffe's Documented Deterioration:

Pauline Sutcliffe auctioned off several sketchbooks that show the rapid deterioration of the gifted artist after the fight.  This work, compared to earlier pre-fight sketches demonstrate a traumatic brain injury. His sketch book after the alleged incident contained radically different scrawls and expressions of pain.  Witnesses tell of a rapid decline in the months leading up to his death.  (Source)

Stuart Sutcliffe's Art Before the Fight
Stuart Sutcliffe's Art After the Attack
Sometime after the alleged altercation, Stuart Sutcliffe left the Beatles to pursue his art, earning a scholarship in Germany which was very rare for a non-German in those days.  His health deteriorated rapidly and he was often bedridden with excruciating head aches.  He died in an ambulance on his way to the hospital on April 10, 1962. (Source)

The Price to be Paid:

So what was the price of Lennon's deal with the devil?  Was Stuart Sutcliffe the blood sacrifice that was needed to seal the pact?  When John learned of Stuarts death, it is said he began laughing hysterically.  (source)  What exactly was going through his mind at the news of the death of his friend, could it have been that the power that promised fame and fortune also demanded a price be paid?  Was Lennon recognizing the truth?  Was he remorseful over the injury that started the brain bleed that killed Stuart?  Was it a simple response to the grief he did not know how to process?  We do see the devastation in Lennon's face later that day when he asked to go to the studio where his friend lived and painted.  The grief over his friend is captured hauntingly by Stuart Sutcliffe's fiance, Astrid Kirchherr.  

Lennon in "Stuart's Attic"
Interestingly, George Harrison moves behind Lennon in an act of comfort that foreshadowed their dual descent into the occult.

George Harrison Joins Lennon in the Dark
The day after on Wednesday April 11, 1962. John told the audience in Hamburg: “Stuart Sutcliffe was a very special human being and a remarkable man. He once told me that he had the ability to see into the future and I for one now believe that Stu was telling the truth.”

What had happened to convince Lennon that Sutcliffe had the gift of precognition? There were rumors that Sutcliffe had told John Lennon the Beatles would be bigger than anyone – even Elvis. Sutcliffe had, however, possibly predicted that he would never see that success himself for he tragically died at age 21 from bleeding in the right ventricle of his brain. (source)"

In the end, the tragic life and death of Stuart Sutcliffe is surrounded in mystery but given what we know about how the enemy works, it is a distinct possibility that he was indeed the first sacrifice on the altar of The Beatles.

The Night the Devil Came for John Lennon

Irreverent and rebellious, the Beatles arrived at a tipping point in world history.  The massive Baby Boomer generation, having been raised by their Depression Era and WWII parents (who just wanted peace and quiet), were the first generation of Americans to not pray in public High School, and fell under the spell of the four lads from Liverpool.  There was a spiritual aspect to Beatlemania; a worshipful frenzy that does not correspond with the beauty of the music.

It did not take long for the youth to embrace the Magical Mystery Tour and go on a drug induced journey into Eastern Mysticism.  Repeating mantras over and over again calls upon spiritual beings that are not who they pretend to be.  Yoko Ono said, "It was more the Four people, it was like they were mediums.  They weren't conscience of all they were saying and all that was coming through them." (Source, The Playboy Interviews, 1980.)

"Do what thou wilt" John Lennon famously quoted the Satanist Alastair Crowley, who also appeared on the Sargent Pepper album cover.  He admitted that, "I've sold my soul to the Devil."   Yoko Ono admits that right before John Lennon died, "It was finally time to consummate all of these spells by making a living sacrifice and signing a pact with the devil." (Source and Albert Goldman, The Lives of John Lennon, pg. 586)

John Lennon Sold His Soul to the Devil
John Lennon famously stated that they had more power, popularity, and influence than Jesus Christ. After the backlash, he doubled down, "Christianity will go, it will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that. I'm right and will be proved right. . . .We're more popular than Jesus now." (San Francisco Chronicle, April 13, 1966, p.26).   He held Christians and Jesus in contempt and blasphemed the Lord by saying, "Jesus El Pifico, a garlic-eating, stinking little yellow, greasy fascist bastard catholic Spaniard." (A Spaniard in the Works, p.14).

Lennon admitted to the Beatles official biographer that he was often possessed by spirits who would take control of his body.  (Source).  Perhaps, these creatures even wrote "Imagine", which is a thinly disguised Atheist Anthem.  (For a detailed breakdown of the song, watch this great video.)  A classic act of obedience to Satan is infanticide, below the Beatles show their true colors:

Infanticide Imagery on the Beatles Album Cover
The last interview Lennon gave he admitted to the spiritual fugue of demon possession and affirmed he'd "been possessed by this the rock and roll devil".  Through the interview of normal life and parenting he says, "I would like to be a happy contented person. I don’t want to have to sell my soul again – as it were – to have a hit record."  Yoko Ono fully owned their New Age philosophy when she said, "And, if each person, all of us, would really be centered, you know, and really start thinking for ourselves then they don’t have a chance. Because we’re really like very powerful Gods and Goddesses, you know?" and then "We are fully aware of our power – whatever that is – and we nurture it and we try to be very careful about our own life because of that. And also try to communicate and, you know, communicate as much as we can with that power, you know?"  

In the end, John confirmed his rebellion, "I was always wanting something, even though I always wanted to be the rebel on the outside, part of me always wanted to be a part of it. And it… it’s an insecurity. I’m not sayin’ that anybody who’s become a born-again Christian or a born-again whatever the other groups are… but, in general, to me it looks like a sign of insecurity because I recognize it in meself." (Source

The last words of the interview are haunting, "Oh, it’s a pleasure… I… I’m a fan of people, too, you know? I like people to sign their books when they give ’em to me and all that… "

Lennon's life was claimed suddenly and violently by a demonically possessed "fan"on December 8th, 1980.  Mark Chapman had battled with demons his whole life and was heard by his wife screaming that Lennon was a "phony fool he doesn’t even realize that soon he’s going to be dead. Just imagine that.” (Source)  In the records of the police investigation, it was reported that the killer had heard an interior voice of the Devil telling him to end Lennon’s life. The voice said: “Kill Lennon, he is mine and I want him.” (source)  Revolution 9, Lennon's song on the White Album, has eerily prophetic connotations.  Lennon is heard moaning and mumbling while back masking plays "Deadman". (Further reading, see here.)

I was just a kid but remember the time after.  I was confused and mildly repulsed by the mourning and adoration of people.  The tributes went on for weeks, the radio played Imagine over and over and over again until I wanted to pull my hair out.  It was disturbing and now I understand why.

Donald Trump is Right About Trade

For the last 26 years, I've worked in International Logistics.  There is a point that GOP Presidential Nominee Trump states that I think largely goes unnoticed, we can not export our goods to other countries.

The US has made the import process into the US seamless and flawless.  Freight moves into our country efficiently, simply, and without trade barriers.  We charge minimal duty, do not have over burdensome inspections or regulations, and we quickly move cargo through the system.  Anyone can be an importer - if you have an idea for a product, you can easily set up a business.

Trump is Right on Trade
Not so in other countries, some of the biggest offenders are:


Potential customers of US products must obtain from their government specific licenses, import permits, and present documents where every line item is scrutinized with the intent of keeping the product out of the country.  I've seen China request net weights of a washer and a screw.  I've seen Brazil issue large penalties for a weight of a 40ft container being off by 15 lbs.  In India, only the very wealthy can afford to obtain an import permit.  In Mexico, every product imported has to have a permit in place.  In practice, these are what is referred to as "Non-Tariff Barriers".  They don't prohibit our products from being imported they just make it so difficult that we effectively can not ship to them.

To add insult to injury, we have duty free programs with dozens of developing countries,  There products import to us with no duty or taxes, to encourage manufacturing THERE.  These are the poorest of the poor and our humanitarian relief agencies often send food, medicine, clothing, and supplies to help the indigent people in refugee camps or disaster areas.  One would think that the governments whose people are receiving these donations would open their arms and say thank you.  One would think...

The reality is that these corrupt governments see a US relief agency as a cash cow.  They throw up all sorts of road blocks to prevent the cargo from entering their country all the while holding the shipments hostage at storage fees that can top $300/day.  We've seen storage fees in the tens of thousands.

When Donald Trump speaks about trade - believe him.  He's telling you the truth.

Rules of Negotiation and Why they Fail in Church

One of the first rules you learn in negotiation is to find common ground with the other party.  Find areas where you agree and discuss your mutual objectives.  Then move the discussion to areas where the other party does not have a strongly held opinion and build on those areas.  You lose the person when you move into areas where they have firm opinions opposite from yours.  They shut down and stop hearing you.  In secular day to day negotiations and even political negotiations this is a good and solid way to do business, but it does not belong in the church.  There is no negotiations at the foot of the cross.

All Must Come to the Cross
You can not negotiate someone to faith and the saving power of Jesus Christ.  Real conversion requires repentance, real repentance only comes from conviction of your sins.  Thus, from a rules of negotiation stand point, only the Holy Spirit's influence can change the heart of a sinner comfortable in his own sin.

That is largely why the wide gate, seeker friendly churches have exploded in a spectacular bang of nothing.  This final church spoken of in Revelation 3 is the Laodicean, "Entertain Me" church which wears the face of Christianity but fails miserably in actual disciples created.  There is no conviction of sin, no repentance of sin, and no place for the changed heart and the changed man.

Turn away from those false churches, confess your sins, ask for forgiveness, and come to authentic live saving faith in Christ.

The Dominoes are Set

"After witnessing how Reuters just blatantly cooked the presidential election polls this week to favor Clinton and how the mainstream media is so terrifyingly biased in favor of Clinton that the very foundation of democracy is now in crisis, it’s time to tell you something that perhaps a lot more people are finally ready to hear:


Every institution in America is sold out, corrupted and politically rigged to favor Big Government and Big Business. “America is a lost country,” explains Paul Craig Roberts. “The total corruption of every public and the private institution is complete. Nothing remains but tyranny. And lies. Endless lies.”" (source).

The above article does an excellent job of outlining and compiling the institutional corruption that has pervaded our country and our world.  As a Christian, we must read this article as a point of hope for all things have aligned for the next chapter of Bible Prophecy to unfold.  It's as if the entire board is set and only needs a Heavenly Finger to flick the first Domino.

The Dominoes are Set
If you are not familiar with how the end plays out, here's a brief run down.
