A Kingdom Seminar on America’s Christian worldview was held at Columbia Evangelical Church on September 24, 2016.  It was sponsored by Rev. E. Ray Moore (Lt. Col.), USAR Ret., of Frontline Ministries and the Exodus Mandate Project (www.exodusmandate.org), and Dan Smithwick of the Nehemiah Institute (www.worldviewcourse.com).  There were three presentations: 1: World History from A Biblical Perspective; 2: 30 Years of Youth Worldview; and 3: Review of American Historical Worldview.

Smithwick presented “The Story of Christendom,” outlining major historical events from Creation to the present.  He observed that approximately every 500 years a major historical event occurs wherein God lets man know that He still exists.  He noted the following approximate dates and events: 2500 BC: Noah’s flood; 2000 B.C.: Creation of Israel; 1500 B.C.:  Exodus/Mosaic Law; 1000 B.C.: Beginning of Kingdoms; 500 B.C.: Rebuilding Israel after Babylonian Exile; 0 A.D.: Jesus’ Birth, Death and Resurrection; 500 A.D.: Consolidation of Christendom; 1000 A.D.: the Light of the Church; and 1500 A.D.: the Protestant Reformation.  He believes that near 2000 A.D., God is about to cause another major event.  Smithwick, who was in business management with AT&T for twenty years, believes a global financial collapse will soon occur to bring us to repentance.  Consequently, he is trying to wake America up to do God’s will.

Friday morning, November 25, 2016,  in the uniform of the Southern soldier, I posted the Southern Cross approximately 3 blocks from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a smoke filled morning from the fires that raged in the mountains making the cars that passed barely visible except for their headlights.

About 7:30 AM, a car pulled into the driveway of a business adjacent to where I stood, and a young Black lady approached me saying, “Sir, what is this all about?”  “Read my sign,” I replied. “United Nations, Beware! Nikki Judas Haley. Coming!”
I can recount the story of a young man doped up on mind altering drugs, who would come to a church in Charleston, South Carolina, where with wide open arms, the parishioners would welcome him into the House of God, and he would reward them with the hideous crime of murder.

LANDRUM, SC – Glassy Mountain Fire Department (GMFD) officially places into community service its new 2016 Pierce Saber fire engine during an invocation and traditional ceremony historically known as a “push in” by department staff.  
The origin of pushing a fire truck into the station dates back to the time of horse drawn equipment.  Firefighters had to push the fire pumpers into the fire station because horses were incapable of backing in the equipment.  The new GMFD engine includes a 1250 GMP pump and a 1,000-gallon water tank with a compressed air foam system that will provide superior firefighting power over water alone. 

Chief Bob Staples, Glassy Mountain Fire Department, said, “We are very grateful to our community for their support.  Our new engine will allow us to better serve our communities for many years to come.  We believe it will greatly enhance our ability to combat fires and reduce property damage.”
