Obama ~ Pied Piper~ Read before voting!!

Obama has made alot of promises that dont make sense when delved into.He has been like a “Pied Piper” to the disgruntled, disenchanted and uniformed.His position with unpatriotic people, his refusal to salute our flag, his not visiting our wounded veterans, his alliance with unscrupulous people going all the way back to 1981, his denials of things that have been publicly proven about him, his affinity with rich arab business men, his part in the Fannie /Freddie collapse and the payoffs he publicly received …too many red flags and too many deceptions!!

Regardless to the media denegration of Mc Cain and Palin, they are the best choice and sober, intelligent, reasonable person could consider regardless to race, religion or political persuasion. Out nation has hope as long as we continue to choose leaders that are dedicated to making our nation great.

Obama is not about making our nation great, rather he is about socializing and weakening it and turning it into a third world power if he wins. Dont let this happen to America! Save America ~ vote for McCain & Palin~

To those who are faith minded I have some scriptures to share below that should help bring about a proper frame of mind in helping you to see and decide what is actually the right thing to do… Please read this in its entirety and consider this when you vote…

Food for thought…. most seems basic to me and may seem so to you, but to one I have sent this too, he doesnt understand where I am coming from and still chooses to believe you can be a prochoice abortion endorsing Christian who will be accepted by God. I disagree according to my understanding, I think I have the mind of Christ in these matters and think I understand as one who has the Holy Spirit guiding me. I could be in error, if that can be demonstrated biblically, but this fellow, offers nothing but surmations of his reading of what I wrote and shows no basis for his own conclusions other than to attack me.. Oh well , I wanted to share these anyway and think most will remember them and if you agree let me know but also if you think I am wrong on any of it still let me know.
Thanks~!

Colossians 1:10 NIVRead this chapterAnd we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
As we mature in Christ, the things of this world are viewed more as ‘trappings’ or the cares of the world that we abandon as we see more clearly how to please t he Lord.”He must increase & I must decrease” becomes not only ‘understood’ but embraced and complied with to our own benefit, which then explains when Jesus said ” My yoke is easy”.. It does get easier when you seek to do his will, resist the devil and not compromise, which keeps you free from guilt as the devil looses his foothold in your life…
1 John 3:9 NIVRead this chapterNo one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God….So as we yield to the Holy Spirit and are ‘watered’ by the Word, we begin to grow in Christ and as we study His word, seeking his will and not some ‘angle’ to manipulate the word according to our desires…
We see that we must resist the devil and our self serving desires which would give birth to sin and bring us to failure and even death.
We are born of God, no longer subject to the flesh, although we inhabit earthly bodies, we are to glorify God in our bodies as well…It isnt as hard, once we submit to his teaching and will for us .
All that the father gives to me will come to me.. .Jesus said, since He is willing that NONE should perish, it is fairly certain that since we are ‘chosen'[you did not choose me but I chose you…] Some through their own stubborness and rebellion, resist the Father’s will for great portions of their earthly lives… it is said that even the elect ‘could’ be fooled…but not that they ‘would’.
Some say that we get into Predestination as a result of these promises of God and since he knows the beginning and the end of the matter, there is an element of that.It should be to our encouragement however, since he has plans for us that are ‘good’ and not evil…
1 Thessalonians 4:1 NIVRead this chapter[ Living to Please God ] Finally, brothers, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.

…Once we come to terms to trust and believe in God and not lean on our own ‘understanding’ we can begin the process of cleansing our temple[mind& heart]putting away the childish things, studying and learning to a workman serving God no longer allowing evil thoughts to persuade our carnal minds, as we gradually put on the mind of Christ.
Philippians 1:21 NIVUKRead this chapterFor to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
…When we become disciplined and accustomed to living in the Word and putting the flesh last while we practice our belief as we choose new each day , in each and every circumstance we face, who we will choose to serve.. It is one or the other, God or our own carnal reasoning which was introduced to us by the devil…If God is God choose Him and live.. if he is not God or Lord of your life you will not choose Him. So to live is Christ and to put to death the deeds of the flesh is gaining favor in God’s sight and will lead to becoming joint heirs with Jesus.
Therefore as Paul said, we can not compare the sufferings we face now with the glories of the things to come..
2 Thessalonians 3:6 NIVUKRead this chapter[ Warning Against Idleness ] In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.
…If we become complacent and shrug our reasonable duty to God when we have been freed by His grace from all matters of our unrighteousness, when we put on Christ’s righteousness in our lives, we are reminded to ‘go and sin no more’….
If we let our light so shine before men, we do our duty to make disciples of all the nations and not shun our responsibilities as Christians in any area of our lives, including ‘everything’ we are to give thanks in and for.. then even in matters such as politics, we are sometimes faced with the spiritually moral dilemmas presented and it is then we have to stand up for Jesus and what he would do and want us to do.
We can not slack off as curse is he who does the will of God with slackness!!We also are not to be cowardly or hide our lamp under a bushel… so being a hidden believer and not bearing the fruits of the Spirit make us double minded, two faced and self deceived.
John 3:36 NASB

36″He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
…If we ‘believe’ and not just merely surfacely acknowledge a weak allegiance to … we will embrace and digest that belief to become part of us and then live by that belief… we are to obey and continue in his word and thus prove to be his disciples… we arent to be like the seed on rocky soil that grows a bit and then shrivels before any fruit can be born.We are to be like the tree planted by living waters and grow and bear fruit doing the will of our Father in heaven as Jesus always did what was pleasing to His Father, so shall we do.
2 Corinthians 10:5 NIVUKRead this chapterWe demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
…We can not allow ourselves to compromise and allow evil to have its place in our lives as the Lord shares his throne with no evil~! WE must take every thought captive and not be like Adam & Eve who considered, embraced and partook of reasoning that allowed them to defy God and thus loose their position in the garden, being cast out.
1 John 4:1 NIVRead this chapter[ Test the Spirits ] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
…the battleground for our souls is in our minds and thoughts are constantly presented to our minds to consider and think about which lead to our action or inactions.We will be judged by our actions and intent of our hearts. If we harbor iniquity in our hearts then we are double minded, meaning we entertain thoughts presented by demonic influences of the spirits roaming to and fro seeking whom they may devour… Resist the devil and reject the evil thoughts and you will be able to see right and wrong as you yield to the will of the Father.
2 Timothy 2:14 NIVRead this chapter[ A Workman Approved by God ] Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.
…The Holy Spirit of God that guides us into all truth, is always in agreement with the Word so where 2 or more are gathered in “MY” name, there I will be in the midst of them… a promise and instruction as to how we can test the spirit of any thought we get to consider. The Holy Spirit will never tell you anything that goes against the word of God as a house divided can not stand and Jesus and the Father are one and their Spirit of Truth is one with them as well and is here to guide us.
2 Timothy 2:15 NIVRead this chapterDo your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
…AS we study God’s word and let it grow in our hearts and minds, it will be ready to bear witness to what the Holy Spirit tries to teach us and also will send up the red flags when religious thoughts [from spirit of religion] and others in tandem approach your mind with the ‘what ifs’ that ultimately would cause you to doubt God and fail.
So study and become one with the word as Jesus is one with the Father!
Romans 12:1 NASBRead this chapter[ Dedicated Service ] Therefore [1 Cor 1:10; 2 Cor 10:1-4; Eph 4:1; 1 Pet 2:11] I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to [Rom 6:13, 16, 19; 1 Cor 6:20; Heb 13:15; 1 Pet 2:5] present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
…The closer you draw near to God the closer he will draw near to you.. which would only stand to reason t hat you would want to be as best prepared to be before Him and not stand ashamed.

Romans 8:13 NASBRead this chapterfor [Rom 8:6] if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are [Col 3:5] putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
…all things are lawful for me but not all things are helpful, so to continue in an activity that will bring you shame , it is better to forsake such sinful activity and become a living sacrifice so that no one can rightly accuse you when you know you are doing the Lords will. Being falsely accused will happen, but you will know that your redeemer lives and that as long as you seek his will you will be safe from judgement.
Matthew 18:15 NIVRead this chapter[ A Brother Who Sins Against You ] “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.
…Trying to show an unyielding carnal minded brother is not an easy task, especially when he has wronged you.Trying to bring him to his right mind in exposing the wrong is also difficult as he who is estranged will seek pretext to break out against sound judgement. So in love and gentleness you are to show the brother the error of his way and pray the Holy Spirit grants him repentence. If you are able to reach and persuade him to the truth, you will be blessed for having restored a brother.
Ezekiel 3:18 NASBRead this chapter“When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his [Ezek 3:20; 33:6, 8] blood I will require at your hand.
…If like when Jonah didnt want to warn the Ninevites because he saw them as enemy, you are rebelling against the will of God and your life will reap punishment til you repent and comply..IF you do and others are reached for righteousness to give God glory, then you will be rewarded but if you dont, then you will be blamed…We are to walk blameless to it is better to do God’s will!
Titus 3:10 NASBRead this chapter[2 John 10] Reject a [Rom 16:17] factious man [Matt 18:15] after a first and second warning,
…when a false teacher or false brother is in your midst only causing dissension and raising doubts to lead others astray, you are to warn him and witness to him in hopes of restoring him. If he remains unyielding and obviously is leading others astray, then you are to warn him to desist and if he doesnt, then you are to shun him and have nothing more to do with him til he is ready to receive the word of God and obey it.
Philippians 4:8 NIVRead this chapterFinally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things
…To be yielding to the Holy Spirit’s guidance will cause you to put away fifthy talk, thought word and deed and when you choose to think on fruitful thoughts you will be able to honestly please the father.
Galatians 5:22 NIVRead this chapterBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
…This is the barometer of how we are to sek and serve God..the Holy Spirit will bear peaceable fruits of righteousness within our beings and gradually allow those fruits to guide us in all our daily considerations and decisions .
1 Thessalonians 2:4 NIVRead this chapterOn the contrary, we speak as men approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please men but God, who tests our hearts.
…As we mature, we become more confident in the word and we wear the whole armour of God, rightly divide the word and can stand ready to give account to all who ask or demand of us. We may not be popular and may be rejected but as servants are not greater than their master, we can expect at times to be mistreated as Jesus was, so when we are meeting various trials we are to count it as joy that we are privileged to share in his sufferings!
Hebrews 6:11 NIVRead this chapterWe want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure.
…To do this we must obey and embrace Gods word and not be double minded as to not receive from him the wisdom the Holy Spirit wishes to impart to us. If you are confused about who you are listening to, then that is not from God and you need to stop thinking, pray and wait to receive confirmation from the Lord before you proceed.
Once you are certain that you are hearing from the Holy Spirit, you will then be empowered to do Gods will.

Matthew 5:19 NIVRead this chapterAnyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
…If you allow earthly compromise to negate Gods will then you will fail.If you stand up to what you know what is right according to Gods will and not the will of man, then you will be great in the kingdom of God, even if you are looked upon as a nut by others.

Acts 5:29 NIVRead this chapterPeter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than men.
…This is true for all of us and it is time we stand against abortion in America as it is evil, no matter how you may carnally want to justify it! If God is Lord of your life, then obey him!~
I have now had some time to think and review these verses and have placed my initial comments on them according the the level I am now at in my service to almighty God. I hope and pray that you will see what the Lord is trying to tell you through the words he has enabled me to present. 🙂 GBU~! Ave

Talking about COBU, CHURCH OF BIBLE UNDERSTANDING,Stewart Traill, S&G Photographics. Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning…

 

Quote

COBU,  CHURCH OF BIBLE UNDERSTANDING

The Church of Bible Understanding {COBU} emerged out of a small groups of fellowships on the east coast in the early 70’s.They were kids mostly that loved Jesus and wanted to serve him with their whole hearts.While many youth of the day were partying and getting high, these kids looked to Jesus to rule their lives and found fellowships together and walked the walk and talked the talk.

They were however young and impressionable and one older man, atrue narcissist,  a man who was/is charismatic and so devious wormed his way into this young fellowship, gaining trust and position began directing their steps into the direction that would eventually enslave them to him and remove their hopes for any quality of life in this world.

He was and still is a destroyer holding [willing?] brainwashed captives to this very day and leaving in his wake, are all the people whose lives are still sorely affected by his treachery.

This is an account of the days when he was openly transforming these young Christians into his brainwashed servants.What he does is not technically considered illegal but it should be and we need laws to prevent people like him from doing what they do. But how? It is so insidious as the victims he still controls have been cut off from the world of today and most fear re-entering it. Believe it or not, it is happening in NYC~! today……………….

In 76 when COBU focused more on new numbers then IN’ retention

I think’ it was more involved than we could imagine.

Stewrat [initially a typo but fitting] was charismatic and had that ability to mesmerize many people.

The older brethren who sensed things going wrong were not so enamoured anymore. they now became a liability to Stewrat’s plans of birthing his own little nation of drones.

This was partly due to  to the changing from small self financed fellowships with limited outside freedoms to how people were  then being herded into warehouses and enslaved for the ’cause’ thinking they were serving Jesus was actually being fed into Stewrat’s BORG….

Stewrats’s  ability to initially impress certain  vulnerable people who would be open to listening proved fruitful.

He saw who he could control as opposed to who he couldnt. He needed the ‘front‘ of  a Christian fellowship, as the means to achieve his ends.

Emphasizing about remaining faithful was the vehicle used to compel people to comply. Those who did not were verbally abused and shunned and cast down, to either escape or openly leave, but  most had to escape.

How people left  was also carefully calculated on Stewrat’s part.. He couldnt just allow people to leave while they were looking at all justified or that would lead to others leaving

He needed a retentive work force so it was instilled that to leave was  leaving Jesus and  to not yield to the group, under his direction was disobeying Jesus and punishable by hell fire. To leave was to backslide.

 He could then surmize who would be suitable be ingrafted.
Around May of 76 the word went out not to trust the older brothers and sisters and the chain of command was upheaveled.

Newer, younger members were encouraged to attack older members who were then shamed and shunned while the new recruits got a pat on the head and became Stewrat’s favorites & were developed into a type of Hitler Youth to report anyone who might be into sin…Understanding the bible no longer was the precedent, compliance was.

This also encouraged a sense of  less true spirituality and  more minor narcissistic tendencies to emerge within the ranks and those who were good at being Official Reprovers [OR’s} made everyone else  fearful and careful not to appear to be questioning or being dissident…

They got more and more militant, more physical labor, more compliance, more willingness to snitch to get  a pat on the head from Stewrat who was systematically setting up alliances with those he could trust to control and those who might eventually expose his game.

Out with the old , in with the new… Eventually picking up homeless people who had ‘no life anyway’ and exploiting them as well as those with in the ranks so long as the wheels kept turning and Stewrat’s power increased as the  money rolled in..

Well just some more thoughts on his devilish genious and under the counter achievements in the early days of COBU…

Now after manipulating and controlling thousands of people from 1971 through present, stealing their youth, energies, faith, dreams and more, Stewart has extracted his profit by the sufferings of those he controlled "in the name of a jesus,[not the real Jesus] making them think to disobey Stewart and his gang[or inner circle], was to be backsliding, sealing their fate to go to hell’a  fate worse than death and prevent most from exposing the entire scam to the outside world officials. 

By these methods he has controlled some for over 30 yrs! In exchange for giving their lives to his control, many have however learned to work in various businesses with the brainwashed privilege of donating their paychecks back to Stewart’s church{COBU} to avoid taxation. They are ensnared since they can not leave with more than the clothes on their backs into a world they do not know.

Stewart in turns has provided minimal room and board and a stipend for each member. At one point it was $1 a day for up to 18 hours hard labor! Sundays, the sabbath was cancelled so workers could make more money for Stewart’s ambitions.A member earning up to $1000 a week could expect a stipend of up to $30 and carfare of up to $30. Money given to  the members is  in cash envelopes.Governing boards of elite members have to penny pinch on each member or they themselves lose rank and privilege. Instilling the thought of crucifying their flesh to be sure they wouldnt ask for more.

Many members were/are underage runaways as well as adults with various degrees of personality disorders, less likely to complain of their abuse.Those who can manage enough thought to question anything are suppressed or shunned and most eventually run away with the clothes on their backs and a trash bag of personal belongings reflecting the fruits of uyears of servitude to this inhumane system of human rights violations.

They would move the ‘drones’ through the underground apt/warehouse system , change the kids appearance [haircuts, dyed hair etc] and names and feed them into the church to become worker bees. Moving them around to unfamiliar surroundings, never watching any TV , limited contact with nonmembers outsiders, instilling fear of the outside world and guilt so they would stay and not know  how to leave or where to go.  They were stifled in thinking that their thoughts were evil and of rebellion and had to be brouht under subjection, causing them to police each other and tell on anyone that would think of dissenting or questioning Stewart’s authority of those who answered directly to Stewart.

Stewart handpicked certain men who would follow his direction in exchange for a piece of the action, thus motivating others to do his dirty work. He once ordered several men to beat his own minor son senselessly for shoplifting.The men only received probation and Stewart was never charged! This happened in Philadelphia at the ‘lamb house’ where new recruits were conditioned, brainwashed and fed back into the work force.

Stewart Traill did/does however keep a paranoid sense of self preservation, never letting even his trusted enforcers be secure in their own positions. Secrecy was/is paramount to keeping control. Any enforcer who showed/shows any inclination towards establishing more power was/is demoted quickly.

Keeping even his enforcers off guard Stewart Traill,  became more powerful. He had/has enablers in business legal matters create ways to hide and launder money and cover their tracks so nothing could be traced to Stewart. He had everything placed under the church name to avoid taxes and recriminations but generous allowances for himsel that were more than a king would receive. He would often say that he takes nothing from the church, since in fact it is laid at his feet. 

The huge cash flow from these slave laborers  and donations sought from corporations, government grants and outside volunteer sources mushroomed into a money making fortune that can not even be estimated.

Some of this money and donations has been funneled and reinvested into other business ventures creating new businesses that gradually have been detached from their original source. Much like how organized crime attempts to go legite~Still it is blood money of those who were his slaves.

The transition from unskilled child/teen/young adult laborers to repairmen refurbishing used vacuum cleaners and selling them at flea markets[sales jobs included men and women] went to carpet cleaning services when Stewart purchaced 10 carpet cleaning machines in 1976.

‘Privileged’ loyal members would take a carpet cleaner and go out in the streets of NYC seeking businesses to clean carpets for. As the money began to flow, more carpet cleaners were purchased and more laborers sent out. There was endless work opportunites. Women members were sent out  with ‘flyers’ soliciting businesses and making appointmets for the men to come and clean carpets. Contracts were soon made  with area businesses and corporations as the sales people sent in to negotiate deals by undercutting every business in the city.This was easy since the work force was slaves. Stewart could have the enforcers push the men to work work nights and weekends. It was not surprising that much of the work done was performed in places linked to organized crime in NYC.

Some notoriety occurred when the Seinfeld comedy series once made reference to them as the "Carpet Cleaning Cult".

I talked with a member once who bragged about making over $300 a week. I asked her how much of that money did she actually recieve in hand, since when I was in they took my entire paycheck and never gave me an allowance.They were supposed to pay my debts off out  of the money I ‘donated’ but never did that either.

After repeated questioning she finally admitted to getting $10 a week and not every week did she receive it but when it was her time of month and she needed sanitary supplies! Having a soda was a luxury and indulging in the flesh…

The workers slept in sleeping bags on the floors of dirty broken down warehouses in the Hell’s Kitchen section of NYC. Up to 130 members lived in squalored conditions sharing 2 toilets and having no nathing facilities. Members would weekly go to public showers to get washed. Lice , roaches and rat infested, one member told me that he bought dog flea shampoo to try and get the bugs out of his hair!

Since there were ‘some’ married families involved in the early days, children would often become sick and have to go to clinics. When the same addresses came up for so many sick children, the Board of Health was sent in to discover the squalor and shut down some of Stewarts home warehouses, forcing him to buy some run down tenements and scatter his flock. People were then overcrowded into apartments, living in ‘shifts’ while the carpet cleaning business {Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services} was born.

At this time any new marriages were strongly discouraged, celibacy and devotion were overly emphasized. All efforts were to benefit a strong work force and keep costs down. Area businesses  made complaints to city officials as the COBU’s Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services was putting others out of work.

Charges were filed for tax evasion and a new loop hole was found and employed. Members were now given their salary checks as ‘independent contractors’ so the Christian Brothers didnt have to pay tax on their behalf. Then to keep all the money in Stewart’s pockets, these salaries were/are then donated to the COBU as charitable contributions.This way members also avoid paying taxes.Members live meagerly off their allowance which never enables them to be able to afford to leave the group.

Delving into the authenticity of the tax exempt status of the ‘church’, Stewart Traill told the members about the movie "Marjo" and that the best way to beat the system was to establish a charity that was cheap to run, such as an orphanage in a third world country…Stewart picked Haiti.. the poorest country in the eastern hemisphere. One where he would come out the winner regardless to anything else.. This made the church look good to the public but was another way for him to exploit humankind.   

Starting the mission was a stroke of devilish genius..feeding starving children.. They began soliciting larger corporate donations as well as government grants to assist in this mission , while not being monitored by any one.They accept any type of monetary or physical property in exchange for tax credits to those who donate.

These donations are not all totally accounted for since some do not require charitable write off declarations. Many antiquities ‘donated’ are then warehoused under member guard and stored til they can resurface in yet another business of the church, " Olde Good Things" E-bay store and sell valuables for thousands of dollars.

Tax accounting is now very professional and what is written down and accounted for has met basic requirements to elude detection, however this is an underground religious named version or organized crime!no better than any other criminal enterprises in America, only more subtle and devious, undetectable except, perhaps by those who escaped its grasp and now live in anonymity, mentally , physically and spiritually abused for decades.  

Today, with 25 yrs of guaranteed good service, Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services is in NYC, LA , SanDiego and Florida. Customers have no idea of what evil enabled this business to form. It is said they even employ some outsiders which give the appearance of a normal enterprise.

The mission in Haiti was plagued with stories of abuse and mismanagement. Young members went there to care for the children were unqualified and many orphans have been beaten and abused without justice ever being served. Corporate doantions keep everything afloat and Traill still prospers from it. He flies one of his 4 church owned planes to deliver the goods to Haiti with Uncle Sam’s picking up the tab under the Bush initiative of funding faith based human needs programs. Stewart would receive accolades for his human services, ironically…

Under the auspices of this charity, donations of planes, plan parts and services are covering most of the costs of operations.New volunteers, separate from the drones have been enlisted to upscale the operation, making it look more honest.Many people unaware of the sinister purpose of Stewart Traill have been unwittingly offering their services in good faith.

At least the orphans get fed…the percentage of what he collects to do this is however funneled into other ventures and very small percentage is there for the good. Where are the Rico laws when you need them? How can a used vac repairman gain the power and position attained by Stewart Traill????
