David Buckner ~ Teachers College, Columbia University
After watching you during the Glenn Beck Show on Monday, February 22, 2010 we decided to make contact with you by e-mail the following day. This letter is for the purpose of explaining our earlier e-mail in more detail.
While researching your credentials on the Internet this morning we were surprised to learn that you had passed out during the Glenn Beck Show. We must have moved away from the TV set at that point as we did not know what had happened when we wrote you earlier.
Checking your credentials we learned that you are the President of Bottom Line Training & Consulting Inc., a firm specializing in change management, cultural integration, and strategic efficiency modeling. Your consulting experience has included work with a number of major corporations. You are also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology and Education at the Teachers College of Columbia University.
As ministers of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God, it is our hope that through this letter you will come to the understanding and wisdom and knowledge of God, who will give abundantly to all those that reach out to him in truth.
If you have had a chance to review the pages and articles of our website you will have noticed that there is a natural and a spiritual body as spoken of by the apostle Paul in Corinthians 15:44 and that the members of the natural body (people of this world) are separated from God and as such do not understand the Bible and the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
All this we have explained to the people of this world through the information we have provided on our website and God's message of repentance. To repent does not mean what you have been conditioned to believe as a result of religious and man-made doctrines that have spread throughout the world for the last two thousand years.
To repent means to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). It should be noted that by nature mankind is under the power of the spirit of darkness or referred to as Satan. For more information on the process of repentance we invite you to read the article Repent listed on this website.
Now throughout the history of this world, mankind has always loved darkness rather than light (John 3:19) and prefers to live in its natural state and separated from God and prefers to believe in a lie. For this reason mankind is unable to understand God's message of repentance or is able to see God's hand or judgment at work in this present world.
We have contacted you in order to explain things according to the spirit of man (discernment between darkness and light), so when God makes his visitation, people will know that God sent us as His messengers with a message of truth.
Consider the discussion about the policies of your government. They do not understand (and do not desire so) what spirit they serve and that this is all God's doing as a result of their unbelief. In truth the governments of this world are ruled by the spirit of this world (darkness), they are controlled by the rich and they only serve the rich (Banks, Wall Street, Big-Business, etc.).
When we walked in darkness and according to the spirit of this world we participated at times in the policy-making and decisions of major corporations. They were always made behind closed doors and only served the aspirations of the company and its self-serving officials but never its employees or customers. The bailouts of the Banks, Wall Street, Big Business and Insurance Companies are a good example. The misfortunes of Toyota are no mistake.
Wouldn't it have been nice to be part of the Health Care Summit in Washington recently and explain that the confrontation and conversation by the lawmakers of the land and the rhetoric by the media made for great theater that was all in vain. They do not understand that the "Health Care System" is already bankrupt and that there will be no solutions in the future.
In the nineteen seventies I took a computer course and developed a glossary of terms to better understand standard computer language. The definition we came up with for the word 'System' was as follows: "A system is a planned method in a controlled environment with enforced disciplines."
If you explore the three areas that define a system, you will discover that the health care system cannot survive. It does not depend how much control the government has over its policies or how much money it can afford to pay for people's medical care but rather how much people will depend on it. That is what determines the cost. Reviewing the work your company specializes in as consultants, you should be able to understand that any time you have a system that spends more than it is able to generate in income, has no chance of survival. The balance sheet of a country works in a similar fashion.
My Mom raised nine children and all I can remember was my family having a bottle of aspirin in the house when we grew up and I do not ever remember when anyone in my family depended on the opinion of a doctor while we grew up. This is only fifty to sixty years ago and as you can see a lot has changed during that time. During the last fifty years mankind has developed an insatiable appetite for a cure of every disease or relief for every pain and ache that has now resulted in a staggering increase of the annual health care costs. 'Out of control' is a better way to describe the failing system.
Dr. John Hamm was the former Premier for the Province of Nova Scotia in Canada from 1999 to 2006. He stated that if the Province failed to contain rising health care spending, it would take up 100 percent of the provincial budget by 2025. The fact that Dr. Hamm was a Canadian Physician before he got involved in politics made his statement even more credible.
Today we know of people that rely on the medical profession, doctors, hospitals and specialists on almost a daily basis, while there is a God that has power over all flesh. This is the message we communicate to this world on a daily basis but unfortunately mankind has chosen to refuse to listen to God's voice and message of repentance. We wrestle not with flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).
You yourself will come to know that the wisdom you have taught over the years at Columbia University is after the wisdom and spirit of this world and not after God (1 Cor. 2:4-16). You must be able to recognize by now that your wisdom is not able to provide people with any solutions for the problems mankind has created.
The media, as the voice of this world for the last hundred years, has acted very much like the governments of this world. It is a closely knit group of self-serving people and the so-called elite of society that jostle for position and ratings to swell their own coffers and those of their employers. As part of their divisive agenda (CNN vs. Fox) they communicate messages that appeal to people and that they think people like to hear, similar to the way religious leaders communicate their deceptive messages in order to add to the numbers of their ministries and congregations to swell their own coffers.
To give you a better understanding of the media industry and the effects it has had on society and the people of this world, we invite you to read the article Influence of the Media listed on this website. Since you appeared on the Glenn Beck Show we would like you to know that the Electronic media will fall in the same way as the print-media. This includes also the Publishing Industry. People will come to know and many already have, that the Bible answers every question mankind has ever dared to ask. It is the only book mankind ever needed to read. The Word of God is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart for every believer (Hebrews 4:12). The day will come and is already here that people will burn the books that have been written as they will realize that they were written after the wisdom and knowledge of man and provide no answers or solutions for people's problems (Acts 19:19).
Let this serve as confirmation that every question you may raise in the future or ask of us, we will answer with words from the Bible - without exception. The Bible is the very Word of God and in fact is God (John 1:1). The Bible provides solutions and answers for everything that mankind ever wanted to know. Unless you repent you will not be able to understand our answers but please know that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).
Now we are not ignorant of the devices of the powers of darkness and the spirit of this world (2 Cor. 2:11) and please know that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day but please be certain of this one thing, that since God came into this world in the Name of Jesus Christ, mankind has gone about to establish his own righteousness but have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God (Romans 10:3).
Consider Mr. Roland Martin for example, a member of the media and a regular contributor to CNN. He is an American journalist and syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate. He also earned a master's degree in Christians Communications at Louisiana Baptist University.
Now before anyone can claim himself to be a Christian Communicator, one needs to know Christ first. Mr. Martin was born in sin and unless he repents he will die in his sin. He does not know Christ as he is separated from God and spiritually blind. He is a communicator of a false Christ and the god of this world and transformed himself into an apostle of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13-15). His book 'Listening to the Spirit Within' refers to the spirit of darkness and an image of a false god. In his book he writes about 50 Perspectives of Faith and even gives a spiritual lesson from Sex in the City.
While there is only one faith, the faith he writes about is without foundation and the wisdom he was taught at Louisiana Baptist University was after the wisdom of men and of this world and not after God (1 Cor. 2:5,6). In fact he was deceived and now deceives others (2 Tim. 3:13). As it is written in Matthew 24:24; For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. For a better understanding of all those that deceive this whole world we invite you to read the articles The Mystery Babylon and False Apostles and False Christs listed on this website.
Like the religious leaders of this world, there are also many in the media that claim themselves to be wise and professionals in religious matters. This is a deception that guides and leads people further away from God. Trust us, this world would be better served if Fox and CNN cancelled all of the shows of their so-called high profile personalities and stars (e.g. Larry King, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, etc.) but we know that even if they did there only would be others, worse and more deceptive than the ones whose names we just mentioned. They will all continue to play the fiddle while their country is on fire and while it is going the way of the 'Hummer' they still will not listen. In case you have not heard, they recently announced that they have suspended the manufacture of the Hummer. While it only got ten miles to the gallon there will be no-more, the time of the Hummer is finished. So will be it be with the ways of this world.
Let me remind you of the words as they are written in Acts 2:18-20. And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophecy: And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.
Consider the Glenn Beck Show of February 25, 2010 during which he introduced three authors. The first one was Bruce Feiler, the author of America's Prophet. During the show Mr. Feiler explained how in his book he compares the Statue of Liberty to the journey of Moses through the wilderness and to the Promised Land. Unless Mr. Feiler repents he will never know Moses and understand the purpose of the journey of the Israelites through the desert and what is meant by the Promised Land. In truth the Promised Land was a foretaste and reference to God's Kingdom to come, while the journey through the wilderness relates to the journey of repentance by every believer in this present world. It had nothing to do with the United States of America. Only Mr. Feiler's high-minded thinking twisted a story, which he stole (John 10:1) from the Bible, and used it for his own purpose to deceive all those that read his book.
Ben Sherwood, author of the Survivors Club now claims that the Survivors Club has the resources that can help people to survive and help them during difficult times, including colon, breast cancer, alcoholism, depression and all other forms of illnesses and diseases. They even make the claim to be able to save lives. If things work that well for the members of his club, why is there any further discussion on health care? In truth nobody has ever been healed, that too is a deception.
They also claim to be able to help you if you face bankruptcy, bad credit and all other problems relating to financial issues. However, in order for anyone to find out if they are a survivor, they require to complete a totally inane quiz to see if they qualify. Yes, the quiz includes questions about God of which he has no knowledge and if you have money to invest you can even become an investor. In short, the Survivors Club deceives all those that subscribe to it.
His third guest was Joshua Ramo who is the author of The Age of the Unthinkable, in which he explains what people can do about the constant changes in the new world disorder and the many surprises and challenges it brings. For a better understanding of a new world order we invite Mr. Ramo to read the article When Will the World End? listed on this website.
Never before, in the history of mankind has there been so much falsehood to distort God's message and the voice of His servants. But thanks be to God, who is about to bring many changes to this present world, and unless you have been asleep the last thirty years that day is already here.
As we have spoken of in other articles and as you may have already noticed, God is bringing all of man's work to nought and has started to pull down all of this world's strongholds that include the religions of every faith, the medical profession, the business community (legal profession and the media), governments and political leaders, sports and entertainment. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? (1 Cor. 1:19,20)
Most people that contact us know that something is drastically wrong with this present world and that everything seems to be upside down but as it was in the days of Noah, the party will continue (Matthew 24:39-39). For a better understanding of the sign of the times we invite you to read the article Foundations Out of Course listed on this website.
Please remember that during the days of Noah only few were saved, that is eight souls. When God chose the Israelites and took them out of bondage in 1,320 BC, the number of adults over twenty years of age who left Egypt is stated in Exodus 12:37 at about six hundred thousand. Allowing the normal proportion of children to such a host, we may infer that the total number was probably between one to two millions. Of these, only two - Joshua and Caleb - were left of the adults who crossed the Red Sea. With these exceptions, the entire adult generation died in the wilderness.
God is no respecter of persons as God judges all of mankind according to their work
(1 Peter 1:17). Two thousand years after God came into this world in the name of Jesus Christ and set an example for all the believers to follow, only few desire to believe in His message of repentance (Matthew 7:14).
As part of nature even trees and plants have more common sense as their leaves turn towards the first sign of light and most flowers close up at the first sign of darkness.
Mankind in turn prefers darkness over light (John 3:10) and continues to take pleasure in following after those that have turned the truth into a lie (Romans 1:25).
They still prefer to listen to all those who claim to preach the gospel of Christ, but who in truth spread a false gospel. They speak about the end of this world (e.g. Jack Van Impe), and bring fear into the hearts of people to swell their own bank accounts, by getting people to purchase videos, books and other materials that speak about a false Christ, and the end of times that cannot bring salvation.
There are many others who use the pitiful plight of the starving masses in the world, or diseases like Cancer and AIDS, to swell their own coffers. You can also add earthquakes to that.
Mankind still believes that the stock market is the leading indicator and barometer of the state of the world, but a study of the history of the stock market, which can be traced back to over 200 years, will show that it was designed and developed to make the rich 'richer'.
It is similar to the tax laws, which were written by the rich for the rich, with all the consequences that this world is facing now.
The unfortunate thing is that unless people repent (similar to the journey by the Israelites through the wilderness) and God reveals Himself to them, they will never be able to understand the mystery of God and they will remain spiritually blind. The story of Job is also a story of repentance and was about the battle between Satan and God, the same battle every believer will experience during the journey of repentance and the journey back to God. Unless people repent they will not be able to understand the story of Job and their prayers will also be in vain (Matthew 15:9) as God does heareth not sinners: but if any man doeth his will, him he heareth (John 9:31). This is why we tell mankind everywhere to repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose power mankind is under) unto God (Acts 26:18), including yourself.
Just like everyone that reads our message of repentance, you have a personal choice to make and if you are able to acknowledge that you are under the power of sin and repent, God will gradually reveal Himself to you and show you that the people of this world believe in a god that by nature is no god (Galatians 4:8). We are just God's messengers but it is up to every individual to make the decision to seek the ways of the true and living God. Every man has been given the choice between life and death but we have an assurance that God will reach out to all those, whose minds have been blinded by the vail that is upon their heart but which vail is done away with in Christ (2 Cor. 3:14-16).
The future will confirm that you and the people of your country, along with the rest of the world, follow after an image of a false god and that God's judgment upon this world is no coincidence. He has the power over life and death and everything is His doing as He is the author of all things. Trust us all the earthquakes this year are no coincidence. As we have already written to many people already: if there had been one righteous person in the eyes of God in Haiti, he would have spared the whole island of Haiti and so it is with the country of Chile.
The day the earthquake shook the country of Chile, the media spent the whole day talking about the tsunami that was going to engulf the coastline of the countries along the Pacific Rim, while they refuse to talk about or discuss the tsunami that is triggered by the spirit of darkness that is engulfing, not only coastal communities but every country throughout the world. We will write more on this at a later date to show people that we spoke (prophesied) of all this in our letter to Mr. Jay Witherbee, Director of News for CTV Atlantic (Nova Scotia, Canada) and his staff on May 28, 2009. The unfortunate part is that even if one was to be raised from the dead they would not believe us (Luke 16:31).
Consider Larry King's interview recently with the Dalai Lama, who Larry King referred to as His Holiness. The Dalai Lama is not holy all (only God is Holy) and his interview was without substance and the questions and answers were without wisdom and knowledge. Some of the answers by the Dalai Lama were rather disturbing, compounded with a series of babblings that made no sense and that deceived all those that follow after his doctrines, in which there is no salvation.
The Dalai Lama is no different than all the other religious leaders of this world. They are like newly painted tombs, that appear beautiful on the outside, but within they are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so outwardly they appear righteous unto men, but within they are full of hypocrisy and iniquity (Matthew 23:27,28).
Larry King and the Dalai Lama do not know what spirit they serve and what spirit they are of (Luke 9:55) as they are spiritually blind, and unless they repent they will die in their sin and they will never know that the love and peace they speak of is after the spirit of this world and not of god (John 5:42). Please know that even Jesus Christ did not pray for this world (John 17:9).
When Barack Obama closes his speeches with: God bless you and may God bless the United States of America, he does not refer to the true and living God but rather an image of a false god and spirit of this world (darkness).
In due course we will post this letter on our website to show mankind that our testimony was of the only true and living God and we know that his testimony is true (John 21:24).
Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation with you in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward (2 Cor. 1:12) as we declared unto you the testimony of God (1 Cor. 2:1).
Matthew 11:6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
We welcome your questions and of all those that share in the reading of this letter.
In His Service.
