Russia Yesterday, America Today

 

Before the fall of the Soviet Union I had a dramatic experience which led me to go there.  Through the many experiences I had before and after to this trip it was made very clear to me how the sovereign hand of God reigns in the kingdoms of man.

I have included the testimony of my experience in this book. I trust it will be enjoyable and interesting as you loin me on this journey.

Dreams and Visions

 

I was living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa when the 1980′s began. In the fall of 1981,  I began having dreams about going to the Soviet Union via airplane coupled with the conviction to go there.

The idea of going to the Soviet Union was always repugnant to me.  In fact, I always told the Lord that there were two things I would never do.  First, go behind the Iron Curtain and secondly, live in California (I’m presently living in Los Angeles).

The dreams kept recurring. Once I dreamed of flying in a fighter bomber. As I crossed the Soviet border I saw thousands of icons inlaid with pure and dazzling diamonds all around the edge.

Being raised in the Orthodox Church I understood that these icons represented Christians behind the Iron Curtain.  According to Orthodox teaching, mankind is the “icon” of Christ since we are made in God’s image.

Then I was quickly brought back to my bedroom.  The message became clearer and I consented to go to the Soviet Union.

The Invitation

Shortly thereafter my cousin called from Wichita, Kansas and said, “Tony, I’ve got a great offer through the University to go on a trip.”  I asked, “where to?”  He responded, “The Soviet Union.”  When I heard that I wanted to say “thanks but no thanks.”  I thought I could postpone the inevitable so I told him I would let him know later.  What made this all the more dramatic was that he knew nothing of my dreams of the Soviet Union.

 

Obedience or Rebellion

After a couple weeks he called to see if I was going on the trip.  I literally opened my mouth to say “no’ when the Holy Spirit said to me “you’re going!”  With great reluctance I agreed to go.

Angelic Visitation

That evening I became very concerned I felt that if God wanted me to go to the Soviet Union He is going to want me to be a witness for the gospel.  With the chill of diplomatic relations between Reagan and Brezhnev and the Soviet hostility toward religion, I would get into trouble

In feeling the need for wise counsel I called a man who had walked with the Lord for decades to see if he had any insight. When I shared with him my dilemma He said:  “I sense the presence of the Lord.. .1 believe you are supposed to go.”

When I hung up the telephone I looked up and saw a warrior angel standing over six feet tall in the doorway. He held a large flaming sword. He spoke without moving his lips.  He said “fear not for I shall be with you”.  During the trip we had one particular experience which I believe  evidenced the angel’s presence.  I will speak of this later.

 

Prophetic Word

 

A few days later I recall being in our family kitchen and telling them of the news that I was going to the Soviet Union. Suddenly my brother turned to me and began to prophecy that I would be used by God to deliver the answer to someone’s prayer.

New York.. An Unexpected Visit

 

In order to make connections for my flight to Moscow I had to stay overnight in New York.  On the day of departure, at 1:10 p.m. I went downstairs to catch the limousine from my hotel to the airport (the limousine was set to leave in lust fifteen minutes).

As I walked outside to get into the limousine Jesus said for me to go into the restaurant and order lunch.

I struggled with His instructions (typical of the fallen nature of man)  because I didn’t think there would be enough time.  However, I wanted to be obedient to the Lord so I went into the restaurant anyway.

When the waitress came to take my order Jesus said for me to tell her about Him. When I did she responded in a way I did not expect.  Smiling broadly she said “oh yes, I’m a Russian Jew and I like hearing about that”  She went on to tell me that her grandfather fought in the Russian revolution as a “White Russian”

After our conversation was finished, the Lord told me to leave for the airport (I never did order lunch) which I did. I got to the limousine on time.

Upon arriving at the airport I found that our plane was late.  In trying to occupy our time we visited with our tour guides to get some insight about attitudes and views of the Soviet people and government about Americans and their own

internal affairs.

As a matter of conversation I brought up the name of Father Demitri Dudko.  They quickly responded by saying “…you don’t even mention his name.. he is ‘hot’ on the government list”.  I thought to myself, “What a great way to start a trip to the Soviet Union.”

 

Red Square at Midnight… .The Amazing Prophecy.

 

We arrived in Moscow at mid evening.  We were held up in

Customs for over four hours.  What we didn’t realize was that Reagan had banned the sale of some technical equipment to the Soviet Union and we were feeling some of the repercussions.  I thought to myself, “what another great way to start a trip. Finally we arrived at the hotel Russia which was across from the Kremlin and Red Square.  The bed in my room was little more than a cot.  Couple that with the time difference, I found myself lying down and wide awake.  At midnight I still could not sleep so I went to Red Square.  As I stood in the center with St. Basil’s Cathedral on my left and the Kremlin in front of me I asked God:

 

  “Lord, I’ve been obedient in coming to the Soviet Union. 

                        Please tell me, why did you send me here?”

 

The Lord replied:

 

                        “I am about to destroy the Soviet Union.”

 

I immediately thought of Ezekiel 38,39. The Lord responded to my thoughts:

 

                        “I AM not referring to that.  I AM going to

                        pour out my Spirit in such a way that the

                        whole Communist system will collapse.”

 

Upon hearing this prophecy I began to pray and implement the weapons of spiritual warfare in Red Square.  Praying that God would send His Spirit to destroy the Communist system.  As I prayed, the Lord spoke to me again and said:

 

The ‘Soviet Union and Eastern Block nations will soon become one of the greatest centers of evangelism the

                        world has ever known.”

 

Hearing this, I began to pray for the peoples of the “Soviet Union” and Eastern Block nations to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit with His enabling power and strength. 

The Lord’s Warning…

On one of our tours we visited an Orthodox church which was turned into a museum.  There I saw the vessels used in the Orthodox liturgical worship now put on display as “relics of antiquity.”

Upon looking at those items the Lord said to me:

“Just one hundred years ago, if someone would have said   that Holy Russia would be anti Christ they would have been                 laughed out of the country. If it happened here it can happen in America. Be  warned.”

Communists Preaching the Gospel?

On another day we visited the Kremlin.  While there we went into the Orthodox Cathedral. Inside the Cathedral, the walls were covered with icons depicting biblical events and persons.

Upon leaving the Cathedral the Lord stopped me at the door and said to turn around and make the “sign of the cross”.  When I did one of the custodians at the entrance table gently smiled at me.

When I walked outside the Lord said something that astounded and puzzled me.  He said:

 

“The Communists are preaching the gospel an  they do not even know it.”

I pondered the question: “How a government which professed atheism, was preaching the gospel?” I then asked the Lord how his could be?

He began His explanation by posing a question:

 

“What are icons?”

 

Immediately the Orthodox theology concerning icons came to mind.  Namely, that icons are not just pictures, they are “writings”.  Icons are given that name because they present the written Bible in picture form.  It is helpful to remember that the Early Church did not have “xerox” copies of the Scriptures and many people were illiterate.

Additionally, the intent of the Byzantine icon in its’ use of what sometimes may seem to be distortions of physical features is to draw the attention of the viewer to the spiritual quality of the person or scene depicted rather than the physical quality. Remembering this brought to mind that in Byzantine iconography any saint depicted needed to be pictured in the context of the event describing why they were “sainted”.  For example, Mary will never be pictured without Jesus.  The reason being that without Jesus she loses her identity.  Then the Lord explained:

 

“The Communists hold the Russian Orthodox iconography

                        in high reverence for what they call “their artistic value”.

                        Thus they take pride in showing off their Orthodox Churches

                        and the icons they possess.”

 

As I pondered upon this He brought to mind the fo1lowing Scriptures:

“Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife and some also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention not                                                                 sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:  But the other  of love, knowing  that I am set for the defense of the gospel.  What                                                     then?  not withstanding, every way, whether in pretense, or in  truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea and will                                                     rejoice.                                   

                                                                        Philippians 2:15-18

 

            “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.  For

                                    it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness”

I Corinthians 3:19

 

                        “He disappointed the devices of the crafty, so that their hands

                        cannot perform anything. He takes the wise in their own

                        craftiness:  and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.”

                                    Job 5:12,13

 

“My word shall not return to me void but it shall accomplish

                        that which I have purposed it to do.”

                                                                                    Isaiah 55:11

Then it all came together.  The Communists displayed the iconography and architecture of the Orthodox Churches as a testimony of Russian culture to generate revenues from tourism. In so doing the millions of people who annually were shown such “works of art” were presented the gospel of Jesus Christ in picture form.  Thus, the Communists were presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to all those who entered the Churches and because He promises to bring fruit from his word, those who hear it will be blessed.

 

From Moscow to Kiev

 

On the way from Moscow to Kiev, a private conversation took place with our tour guide.  Her name was Tammarah and she represented herself as a member of the Soviet Intelligencia. She proudly and confidently proclaimed the “gospel of communism”.

I felt impressed by the Lord not to say much but rather just listen to her.  After our arrival I was to find out why.

The first night in Kiev I received a telephone call from the same tourist guide.  She invited me to meet her in the coffee shop to talk about communism.  I responded to her invitation by agreeing to talk about communism if we can also talk about Jesus. She agreed.

When we met she shared about her beliefs in communism.  I shared my beliefs in the capitalist system and then our conversation gradually focused on my testimony of Jesus Christ.

After a few minutes she “confessed” that she had a grandmother who was a devoted Christian with whom she had been very close until her passing a few years previous.

I then shared with her that before I came on this trip I had received a prophesy that I would be the instrument God was using to answer a prayer for someone.  I then shared with her that the Lord wanted her to know that her grandmother was alive, living in heaven and she was praying for her.  upon hearing this she began to weep.  Then she related to me how her grandmother raised her in the faith of Jesus and at the age of eight she was baptized.

To understand the great importance of her statement we need to understand that Baptism in the Orthodox is not symbolic.  It is a spiritual experience of commitment and entry into the faith of Jesus Christ.

 

Monastery of the Caves

 

While in Kiev we went to a place called the Monastery of the Caves.  This is an Orthodox Monastery that was literally built down into a mountain.  The reason being that as the monastery grew in numbers they had no money to buy land so they dug deep into the mountain to accommodate the growing numbers of monastics.

We were taken down into the mountain where we saw the bodies

What an antithesis to Communist atheism.  However, I see it as God’s way of demonstrating that He reigns in the governments of man.  Here He is using “dead” men to confound the “wisdom” of atheism.

 

Leningrad (St. Petersburg)

After a few days in Kiev we went to Leningrad now known as St. Petersburg.  We continued being taken to Orthodox churches that were turned into museums as well as other sights of interest.

On the last day of our visit to Leningrad (St. Petersburg) it was the close of the day and finishing our tour.  My cousins and I realized that we needed to buy gifts for our relatives.  We decided to leave the tour to go to the “tourist shop”.

Time got by us and when we left to go to the hotel it was rush hour.  Imagine being in a city of nearly three million people about 98% of whom use the Metro subway system to go to and from work. A sea of people filled the streets.

We were on the way to the subway (Metro) when my cousin said “Tony, there is a Metro station across the street. Why don’t we go there instead of going up the street to the one where you were told to go?”  I said “O.K.”

When we entered the station, the people were so numerous we could not see the floor.  We stepped off to the side to get our bearings.  From that view point it was like watching a river of people flowing down the escalator to the Metro.

It so happened that there were two Soviet flight attendants standing off to the corner as if to be waiting for us.  I vividly remember seeing their flying wings pinned to their uniforms.

We asked if they spoke English and one replied, in her Russian accent, “a leetle”.  When we asked her which subway to take to the hotel

She said:          “We are going that way follow us.”

Oddly enough we saw several levels from which to approach the Metro.  We needed to take the Metro on the second level. Interestingly, I was going to take the Metro on the first level. Thank God for the flight attendants.  If we hadn’t met them I wouldn’t want to imagine where we might have ended up.

Upon arrival to the hotel we noticed that the flight attendants began going back towards downtown.  My cousin asked, “didn’t they say that they were going the way to the hotel?”  My other cousin and I said “yes”.  Then the reply came, “why then are they going back towards downtown?”

We all thought it was odd and yet interesting.  If they were angels their actions spoke to us that they were going the way to the hotel for our sakes.   After all they only said that they were going that “way”.  They did not say that they were actually going to the hotel.  Were they angels?  I don’t know for sure but there are some interesting points to consider.

                Had we gone to the Metro station I originally planned on we would have missed them.

Soviets who speak English are very rare. In addition, neither of us spoke any Russian.  The directions

            I was originally given to get back to the hotel were incomplete and if we had not encountered the  flight attendants we would have taken the wrong subway. No telling where we would have ended up.  We needed help.  We ended up at the hotel without incident.

The Return Home

Upon our arrival back to New York City we gathered our baggage and promptly sought a taxi to the hotel.  Getting into the taxi we noticed the driver speaking “broken” English with a strong European accent.  We asked him where he was from.  He said:  “The Ukraine”.  He went on to share that he had lust arrived in the United States.

In a city of thousands and thousands of taxi cabs I can’t believe that meeting this man was mere coincidence.  Think of it, the last person with whom I spoke before I left for the Soviet Union was of Russian heritage and the first person I spoke with upon my return was of Ukrainian descent.  Both countries being members of the former Soviet Union.

After arriving back in Cedar Rapids, Iowa I shared with friends  and relatives the prophetic word that God gave me,  The responses were varied.  Some accepted it. Some were puzzled and some, I’m sure thought I had a great imagination.

 

The Young Russian Woman

In 1994, after moving to Los Angeles, California,  I was at a church service where I met a young Russian woman.  Wanting to encourage her I shared my experience in Russia.  After the church service was over she came to express a word of encouragement to me.

            She said that for thirteen years after accepting the Lord she tried to leave the Soviet Union but was prevented by the government. Then, the same year I went to the Soviet Union and for some unknown reason the government decided to change their mind and let her go.

 

Deliverance for the Soviet Union…Warning for America

 

Shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union the Lord spoke these words to me:

                        “I view a nation as a person.  For example I called the

                        Israelites by the name of Jacob.

 

            The Soviet Union having been one “person”  has lust experienced an exorcism of the spirit of the Anti-Christ. Now that same spirit is looking for another “host body”   It has found one in America who has rejected Me and my statutes of life.

The Church is the spirit and conscience of America.  Will she rise up and expel the evil which has begun to possess her “body and soul” or neglect her moral responsibilities?

The Soviet Union collapsed in the same manner as the Lord Prophesied to me.  What is interesting is that it happened through the prayers and actions of people   It did not come with a bolt of lightning from heaven.  It came through the hand of people as they were moved by their heart’s hunger for freedom and the Spirit of God which opened the “door” for their deliverance.  Much the same way that God opened the Red Sea for the Hebrews to leave Egypt.  He parted the water and they walked through.

When the Berlin wall came down it was hammered and chiseled by people who wanted to be free.  It was God’s favor and power combined with their labor and effort which brought down the wall of bondage.  We can surely see that God reigns in the kingdoms of man through the hearts, mind and hand of men and women who are obedient to God because of their love for Him.

22 Years Later…

In about 1989 the prophecy of the destruction of the Soviet Union came to pass just like the Lord prophesied to me when I was in the Soviet union seven years earlier.  Even though I knew it was God who spoke to me then I was awe struck.  I then asked the Lord:  “What is next?”

            God spoke to me again saying  the demon spirits of the anti-christ have been exorcised from the eastern block countries..  That  demon spirit is roaming dry places for another  host.  It found one in America—be warned..

 

America Today—Prophesy Fulfilled

 

The manifestation of the spirit of anti-christ which used communism in the Soviet Union

has now manifested in the United States in various forms.

One predominant form is homosexuality.  This lifestyle virtually attempts to do t

Christians and the nation what communism did to in the Soviet Union.

For example,

Rise of Homosexuality

In 2015The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of homosexual marriage.

Most people react to this as a left win by the court outside the Constitution.

While the liberals praised the ruling as embracing “equality’ and conservatives decried it as evil and unconstitutional there is another important perspective e.g.  God.

In this book I wrote about the “Law of Subjective Responsibility”

By definition this means that whatever the government rulers or kings do that aligns with or against God’s will, resultsin the consequences of blessing or curse to fall on those over whom they govern.

 

For example, when Pharoah would not let Israel go, the ten plagues fell on ALL the people of Egypt—and they had no voice in government.  When  Abrham believed and was obedient to God it brought God’s blessing to all Israel.

 

So it is for the United States government.  Their policies and ruling brought forth and will ring the judgement of God upon the nation.

Shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union we began to see an aggressive push by homosexual

 

individuals and organization.  They actively pursued control of the political arena, judicial system and even the churches.  Combine this with the moral disintegration of moral values inmany churches and the nation makes a favorable ground for growth.

One of the hindrances blocking their agenda is the Church and those ascribing to moral conservatism.  Consequently, we saw a rise of hate crimes.  In Iowa the Supreme Court struck

 

down a marriage amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.  In California

 

Prop 8, an initiative voted by the people defines marriage between a man and woman.  It was

 

struck down by a Federal Judge.  It is now under appeal.  It is illegal in Canada to criticize

 

homosexuality based on biblical values.  There are now non-discrimination laws in many states

 

protecting homosexuality and giving special rights to homosexuals.  Even the U.S. Supreme

 

Court struck down a sodomy law in Texas and a Colorado state constitutional amendment and also the recent repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

.One of the big problems manifesting with this new invasion of the spirit of antichrist is that it predominantly uses homosexuality to marginalize the gospel and the church.

In many instances the spirit of antichrist uses homosexuality in America in the same manner it used communism in the Soviet Union I.e. marginalize and attack the church asenemies of the state.

 

I personally was discriminated against when the leader of a human trafficking coalition

 

attacked me for my moral beliefs saying I want to take people’s right’s away” i.e. take away homosexual marriage.

 

Anti Christian persecution:  For years the Catholic church has received funds for thei

 

r great work helping victims of human trafficking.   Recently they lost their funding because of

 

their moral values.

 

Students at high school graduations and athletic events are forbidden from saying prayers

 

The name of “Jesus” was prohibited to be used military prayers by chaplains and other

 

government burial sites.

 

The time tested tradition of Manger scenes have come under assault by atheist and anti

 

religious groups.  Fortunately many pro family and religious freedom groups have prevailed in

 

many cases.

 

Capitalism vs. Socialism:  For the last several years the free market enterprise which

 

brought down the Soviet Union is beginning to be supplanted by those calling for everyone to

 

receive their “fair share” , and the wealthy need to pay their fare share of taxes.  By the way,

 

who defines “fare share”.  It was the opportunity provided by America given to everyone to gain

 

wealth that grew America’s wealth.  By the way, this wealth has been used to feed billions,

 

provide medicine and more.

 

Below is a recent article/press release I distributed:

Socialism vs. Capitalism

 

Ironically, the relative economic philosophies are beginning to trade places.

 

For over 200 years the capitalist system of economics basically said to the people of America that here is the opportunity to work hard, be creative, provide a great service or product, treat people fairly and honestly and you can be prosperous.

 

Now  we have a president and a political party that wants to take our wealth and according to their dictates, distribute to others.  Even so far as vilainizing the most prosperous when in fact they should be an economic role model.

 

The Spiritual Dynamic

 

There is a spiritual dynamic to the economic systems of a nation.  Socialism dominates and controls the national economic system.  This prevailed during the days of the Soviet union.  I was there and saw the suffering of the people.  Meat stores empty, Clothing was allthe same and drab.  Cars were scarce and most people traveled by metro.

 

Below, please note the recent press release by Tony Nassif

 

Dear friends,

In recent days we’ve seen massive demonstrations against “Wall Street”

The demonstrators direct their anger at the economy and the perceived cuprit of Wall Street and capitalism.

Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Who/What is to Blame:
To blame capitalism for the current economic crisis is like blaming a car for adrunkdriving accident. Adrunkdriving accident is caused by the driver. So is the current economic crisis caused by those who have abbrogated their moral values putting the profit motive above moral standards of right and wrong. This ignores the root of the problem which is a moral disintegration.

Profit is great within the boundaries of morals, ethics and law. For the government to allow anyone to file for amortgage with only “stated income” without documentation, to focus on profit at all costs and without regard to long term effect justifying the means to the end leads us to the warning of the Apostle Paul who said “…the love of money is the root of all evil…”

Capitalism is the greatest economic system known to man.

The capitalist system provides incentives for anyone to take their creative ideas and produce products and services that improve the lives of others while at the same time providing benefits of increased income, employment of staff. One great example is Steve Jobs when he created Apple. Do we need to detail the products created that produced great profits and products which improved the lives of people throughout the world.

Let’s keep in mind that the capitalist system built America’s greatness. However, the drive for profit was governed by the moral foundation that the founders of the nation establised as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

“We therefore, the representatives, assemble in Congress, submit the rectitude of our intentions to the Supreme Judge of the World.” This Supreme Judge of the world has standards of right and wrong with consequences of blessing or judgement.

The Lebanese Experience in America

One of the greatest testimonies of the benefits of the capitalist system are the Lebanese people who came to America.

My father came to America from Lebanon when he was eight years old. The capitalist system in America provided him the opportunityto prosper, build wealth and to willingly (not by government compulsion) give of his wealth to those in need and less fortunate. He built wealth to support his family, educated his family and made contributions of service to his community.

The Lebanese people are known for their capitalist free market work and lives. This heritage goes back thousands of years to their ancestors, the Phoenicians known for their freetrade. They were the first to bridge barriers with other cultures seeking to do business and mutual benefit with those people they met.

The Phoenicians looked past the cultural differences to build economic alliances. Thus, the capitalist system is a great remedy to racism.

Socialism is an Anti-christ economic government system

Jesus never told the government to care for the sick and needy. He directed that to the Church.

God Created the Capitalist System. Socialism stifles the creative capacity God imputed into the heart of mankind. Socialism enlaves mankind and sifles their God-given creativity. Remember the Soviet Union? Remember China under Chairman Mao? Remember Castro’s Cuba?

What?!!! God is a Capitalist? Absolutely. Here’s why

When God made the earth He gave all of it to Adam to care and enjoy it. When Solomon only asked for wisdom to govern his people God made him wealthy that gold was given to him by the barge load. Jesus said that to give it would be given abundantly. The Apostle John said “Beloved I would that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” III John 2. The Apostle Paul says “God has given us all these things to enjoy.

 

Finally, in Deuteronomy 8 and 9 , God said “I’m the one who gives you power to get wealth.”

The Solution

 

The only solution to economic problems is to release the shackles that have bound the creative nature God established while at the same time returning to the sound moral values that provided the foundation for America for hundreds of years.   This can only come through the government and those who holds the authority of governmental power.  This can only happen when people of sound moral values hold those offices and implement policy consistent with God’s mandate.
These government leaders can only do this when they are elected to those offices of government.

 

Reagan the Emissary of God

In early 2012, I was having lunch with Michael Reagan, President Reagan’s son.  I told him this story about the fall of the Soviet Union, my trip there and the role of God’s plan for his father, President Reagan.

I recalled to him the time after President Reagan was shot on Monday, March 30, 1981.   It was a few months later that God began to deal with me about going to the Soviet Union and my subsequent trip when the Lord prophesied to me the destruction of the Soviet Empire.

I shared that in response to President Reagan’s realization that God saved him.  He virtually said that God saved him and his life and presidency belongs to God.  He began to make his decisions about the Soviet Union based on his own conviction of heart which sometime brought him into conflict with the diplomats at the State Department.  For example, when President Reagan was preparing his remarks at the Berlin wall he had written the statement “Mr. Gorbochev, tear down this wall.”  The State Department discouraged this seemingly inflammatory language.  President Reagan left it in.  Unbeknown to many and most likely President Reagan, his statement carried a powerful spiritual dynamic.

In this book I wrote about the fact that the head of government is a ministry as well as a political secular office.  Thus, what the head of state chooses has an effect on those whom they govern just like what happened to Egypt when Pharoah would not let Israel go and the plagues came on all the nation of Egypt even though only Pharoah rebelled against God.

President Reagan was hand picked by God to destroy the Soviet Union.  Therefore, by him speaking the words “…tear down this wall…” He implemented the powerful words of Jesus who said:

                        “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever               says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but   believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Mark 11:22,23

President Reagan spoke the destruction of the Berlin wall which symbolized the Soviet Union.  God responded by pouring out his Spirit destroying the Soviet Empire.

 

 

 

President Reagan in the office of Prophet and President

          President Reagan Joins a Growing Group Mixing Politics and Faith

Nathan the Prophet,

John the Baptist, 

St. Ambrose of Milan, 

John Chrysostom

President Ronald Reagan

Considering  that President Reagan was compelled by God to change world history and set the captives free, I’m reminded about the lives of various men demonstrating God’s move through them

King David

                        “And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue

                                    after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he [God] answered him,

                                    Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

I Samuel 30:8

God intended to give David the victory but he required David to attack and not sit back and say “God’s will is going to be done”  God told him if David attacked then He would delivered the enemy into his hands.

Nathan the Prophet

Another example Godly men standing up to the government leaders is related when David committed adultery with Bath Sheba and making her pregnant.  She was the wife of Uriah, David’s trusted and loyal soldier,

David tried to cover up the pregnancy by ordering Uriah to take time off and sleep with his wife.  Out of loyalty, Uriah refused and slept on the doorstep.

When this leak didn’t work David ordered Uriah be sent into the heat of battle for the purpose of letting him be killed by the enemy thereby making the problem go away.

One day the Prophet Nathan came to him telling about a man who had a multitude of sheep but he stole the one little lamp a poor man had.  David became enraged saying that whoever did this would be put to death.  Nathan responded:  David, “you are that man”.

David repented because the Prophet spoke the word.

John the Baptist

            The one least expected to involve himself into government is John the Baptist.  He came out of the wildnerness eating locusts and honey.  Total rejection of the world system.

Yet he was not shy about confronting government leaders for their immorality and oppression of people.

When he encountered Herod and his wife (sister-in-law) he openly rebuked them for their immorality.  This ultimately cost him his life.

When the soldiers and publicans came to him they asked what they should do.  Instead of shying away from the questions John the Baptist said to the publican not to collect more tax than they should and to the soldier he said not to do harm.

            Ambrose of Milan

            In the 5th Century Bishop Ambrose of Milan rebuked the emperor for authorizing a massacre of people in Thessalonica.  He even forbid him to take communion until he opening repented—-the emperor repented.

So it is with President Reagan.  God basically said that if he would resist the Soviets God would deliver them into his hand.  So it was.

He was God’s hand to deliver the world and millions of people from the bondage of communist socialism dominated by the Soviet Union.

America is in need of more government leaders submitted to the will of God to defend the defenseless and protect the innocent and the moral foundations of our security.

 

President Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan not only was the political and government leader of America his leadership confronted an aggressive political philosophy but he was also leading the free world to confront an anti-christ system that enslaved millions with a global geo-political goal of world domination.

Thus the battle of the Cold War was fought in the geo political sense but just as important is the battlefield of the spiritual war inspired by the anti-God, anti-Christ tyranny.

President Reagan led the fight and the world won.  We all owe him a debt of thanks.

God rest his soul.  Thank you, Mr. President.

Russia Yesterday, America Today

 

Before the fall of the Soviet Union I had a dramatic experience which led me to go there.  Through the many experiences I had before and after to this trip it was made very clear to me how the sovereign hand of God reigns in the kingdoms of man.

I have included the testimony of my experience in this book. I trust it will be enjoyable and interesting as you loin me on this journey.

 

Dreams and Visions

 

I was living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa when the 1980′s began. In the fall of 1981,  I began having dreams about going to the Soviet Union via airplane coupled with the conviction to go there.

The idea of going to the Soviet Union was always repugnant to me.  In fact, I always told the Lord that there were two things I would never do.  First, go behind the Iron Curtain and secondly, live in California (I’m presently living in Los Angeles).

The dreams kept recurring. Once I dreamed of flying in a fighter bomber. As I crossed the Soviet border I saw thousands of icons inlaid with pure and dazzling diamonds all around the edge.

Being raised in the Orthodox Church I understood that these icons represented Christians behind the Iron Curtain.  According to Orthodox teaching, mankind is the “icon” of Christ since we are made in God’s image.

 

In another dream I was instantaneously taken to the South Pole, where I froze.

 

Then I was quickly brought back to my bedroom.  The message became clearer and I

 

consented to go to the Soviet Union.

 

 

 

 

 

The Invitation

 

Shortly thereafter my cousin called from Wichita, Kansas and said, “Tony, I’ve got a great offer through the University to go on a trip.”  I asked, “where to?”  He responded, “The Soviet Union.”  When I heard that I wanted to say “thanks but no thanks.”  I thought I could postpone the inevitable so I told him I would let him know later.  What made this all the more dramatic was that he knew nothing of my dreams of the Soviet Union.

 

Obedience or Rebellion

After a couple weeks he called to see if I was going on the trip.  I literally opened my mouth to say “no’ when the Holy Spirit said to me “you’re going!”  With great reluctance I agreed to go.

 

 

Angelic Visitation

That evening I became very concerned I felt that if God wanted me to go to the Soviet Union He is going to want me to be a witness for the gospel.  With the chill of diplomatic relations between Reagan and Brezhnev and the Soviet hostility toward religion, I would get into trouble

In feeling the need for wise counsel I called a man who had walked with the Lord for decades to see if he had any insight. When I shared with him my dilemma He said:  “I sense the presence of the Lord.. .1 believe you are supposed to go.”

When I hung up the telephone I looked up and saw a warrior angel standing over six feet tall in the doorway. He held a large flaming sword. He spoke without moving his lips.  He said “fear not for I shall be with you”.  During the trip we had one particular experience which I believe  evidenced the angel’s presence.  I will speak of this later.

 

Prophetic Word

 

A few days later I recall being in our family kitchen and telling them of the news that I was going to the Soviet Union. Suddenly my brother turned to me and began to prophecy that I would be used by God to deliver the answer to someone’s prayer.

New York.. An Unexpected Visit

 

In order to make connections for my flight to Moscow I had to stay overnight in New York.  On the day of departure, at 1:10 p.m. I went downstairs to catch the limousine from my hotel to the airport (the limousine was set to leave in lust fifteen minutes).

As I walked outside to get into the limousine Jesus said for me to go into the restaurant and order lunch.

I struggled with His instructions (typical of the fallen nature of man)  because I didn’t think there would be enough time.  However, I wanted to be obedient to the Lord so I went into the restaurant anyway.

When the waitress came to take my order Jesus said for me to tell her about Him. When I did she responded in a way I did not expect.  Smiling broadly she said “oh yes, I’m a Russian Jew and I like hearing about that”  She went on to tell me that her grandfather fought in the Russian revolution as a “White Russian”

After our conversation was finished, the Lord told me to leave for the airport (I never did order lunch) which I did. I got to the limousine on time.

Upon arriving at the airport I found that our plane was late.  In trying to occupy our time we visited with our tour guides to get some insight about attitudes and views of the Soviet people and government about Americans and their own

internal affairs.

As a matter of conversation I brought up the name of Father Demitri Dudko.  They quickly responded by saying “…you don’t even mention his name.. he is ‘hot’ on the government list”.  I thought to myself, “What a great way to start a trip to the Soviet Union.”

 

Red Square at Midnight… .The Amazing Prophecy.

 

We arrived in Moscow at mid evening.  We were held up in

Customs for over four hours.  What we didn’t realize was that Reagan had banned the sale of some technical equipment to the Soviet Union and we were feeling some of the repercussions.  I thought to myself, “what another great way to start a trip. Finally we arrived at the hotel Russia which was across from the Kremlin and Red Square.  The bed in my room was little more than a cot.  Couple that with the time difference, I found myself lying down and wide awake.  At midnight I still could not sleep so I went to Red Square.  As I stood in the center with St. Basil’s Cathedral on my left and the Kremlin in front of me I asked God:

 

  “Lord, I’ve been obedient in coming to the Soviet Union. 

                        Please tell me, why did you send me here?”

 

The Lord replied:

 

                        “I am about to destroy the Soviet Union.”

 

I immediately thought of Ezekiel 38,39. The Lord responded to my thoughts:

 

                        “I AM not referring to that.  I AM going to

                        pour out my Spirit in such a way that the

                        whole Communist system will collapse.”

 

Upon hearing this prophecy I began to pray and implement the weapons of spiritual warfare in Red Square.  Praying that God would send His Spirit to destroy the Communist system.  As I prayed, the Lord spoke to me again and said:

 

The ‘Soviet Union and Eastern Block nations will soon                                            become one of the greatest centers of evangelism the

                        world has ever known.”

 

Hearing this, I began to pray for the peoples of the “Soviet Union” and Eastern Block nations to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit with His enabling power and strength.

 

 

The Lord’s Warning…

 

On one of our tours we visited an Orthodox church which was turned into a museum.  There I saw the vessels used in the Orthodox liturgical worship now put on display as “relics of antiquity.”

Upon looking at those items the Lord said to me:

 

“Just one hundred years ago, if someone would have said                             that Holy Russia would be anti Christ they would have been                 laughed out of the country. If it happened here it can happen in America. Be            warned.”

 

 

Communists Preaching the Gospel?

 

On another day we visited the Kremlin.  While there we went into the Orthodox Cathedral. Inside the Cathedral, the walls were covered with icons depicting biblical events and persons.

Upon leaving the Cathedral the Lord stopped me at the door and said to turn around and make the “sign of the cross”.  When I did one of the custodians at the entrance table gently smiled at me.

When I walked outside the Lord said something that astounded and puzzled me.  He said:

 

“The Communists are preaching the gospel and

                                    they do not even know it.”

 

I pondered the question: “How a government which professed atheism, was preaching the gospel?” I then asked the Lord how his could be?

He began His explanation by posing a question:

 

“What are icons?”

 

Immediately the Orthodox theology concerning icons came to mind.  Namely, that icons are not just pictures, they are “writings”.  Icons are given that name because they present the written Bible in picture form.  It is helpful to remember that the Early Church did not have “xerox” copies of the Scriptures and many people were illiterate.

Additionally, the intent of the Byzantine icon in its’ use of what sometimes may seem to be distortions of physical features is to draw the attention of the viewer to the spiritual quality of the person or scene depicted rather than the physical quality. Remembering this brought to mind that in Byzantine iconography any saint depicted needed to be pictured in the context of the event describing why they were “sainted”.  For example, Mary will never be pictured without Jesus.  The reason being that without Jesus she loses her identity.  Then the Lord explained:

 

“The Communists hold the Russian Orthodox iconography

                        in high reverence for what they call “their artistic value”.

                        Thus they take pride in showing off their Orthodox Churches

                        and the icons they possess.”

 

As I pondered upon this He brought to mind the fo1lowing Scriptures:

“Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife and some

                                    also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention not                                                                 sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:  But the other                                                      of love, knowing  that I am set for the defense of the gospel.  What                                                     then?  not withstanding, every way, whether in pretense, or in                                                  truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea and will                                                     rejoice.                                   

                                                                        Philippians 2:15-18

 

            “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.  For

                                    it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness”

I Corinthians 3:19

 

                        “He disappointed the devices of the crafty, so that their hands

                        cannot perform anything. He takes the wise in their own

                        craftiness:  and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.”

                                    Job 5:12,13

 

“My word shall not return to me void but it shall accomplish

                        that which I have purposed it to do.”

                                                                                    Isaiah 55:11

Then it all came together.  The Communists displayed the iconography and architecture of the Orthodox Churches as a testimony of Russian culture to generate revenues from tourism. In so doing the millions of people who annually were shown such “works of art” were presented the gospel of Jesus Christ in picture form.  Thus, the Communists were presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to all those who entered the Churches and because He promises to bring fruit from his word, those who hear it will be blessed.

 

From Moscow to Kiev

 

On the way from Moscow to Kiev, a private conversation took place with our tour guide.  Her name was Tammarah and she represented herself as a member of the Soviet Intelligencia. She proudly and confidently proclaimed the “gospel of communism”.

I felt impressed by the Lord not to say much but rather just listen to her.  After our arrival I was to find out why.

The first night in Kiev I received a telephone call from the same tourist guide.  She invited me to meet her in the coffee shop to talk about communism.  I responded to her invitation by agreeing to talk about communism if we can also talk about Jesus. She agreed.

When we met she shared about her beliefs in communism.  I shared my beliefs in the capitalist system and then our conversation gradually focused on my testimony of Jesus Christ.

After a few minutes she “confessed” that she had a grandmother who was a devoted Christian with whom she had been very close until her passing a few years previous.

I then shared with her that before I came on this trip I had received a prophesy that I would be the instrument God was using to answer a prayer for someone.  I then shared with her that the Lord wanted her to know that her grandmother was alive, living in heaven and she was praying for her.  upon hearing this she began to weep.  Then she related to me how her grandmother raised her in the faith of Jesus and at the age of eight she was baptized.

To understand the great importance of her statement we need to understand that Baptism in the Orthodox is not symbolic.  It is a spiritual experience of commitment and entry into the faith of Jesus Christ.

 

Monastery of the Caves

 

While in Kiev we went to a place called the Monastery of the Caves.  This is an Orthodox Monastery that was literally built down into a mountain.  The reason being that as the monastery grew in numbers they had no money to buy land so they dug deep into the mountain to accommodate the growing numbers of monastics.

We were taken down into the mountain where we saw the bodies

What an antithesis to Communist atheism.  However, I see it as God’s way of demonstrating that He reigns in the governments of man.  Here He is using “dead” men to confound the “wisdom” of atheism.

 

Leningrad (St. Petersburg)

 

After a few days in Kiev we went to Leningrad now known as St. Petersburg.  We continued being taken to Orthodox churches that were turned into museums as well as other sights of interest.

On the last day of our visit to Leningrad (St. Petersburg) it was the close of the day and finishing our tour.  My cousins and I realized that we needed to buy gifts for our relatives.  We decided to leave the tour to go to the “tourist shop”.

Time got by us and when we left to go to the hotel it was rush hour.  Imagine being in a city of nearly three million people about 98% of whom use the Metro subway system to go to and from work. A sea of people filled the streets.

We were on the way to the subway (Metro) when my cousin said “Tony, there is a Metro station across the street. Why don’t we go there instead of going up the street to the one where you were told to go?”  I said “O.K.”

When we entered the station, the people were so numerous we could not see the floor.  We stepped off to the side to get our bearings.  From that view point it was like watching a river of people flowing down the escalator to the Metro.

It so happened that there were two Soviet flight attendants standing off to the corner as if to be waiting for us.  I vividly remember seeing their flying wings pinned to their uniforms.

We asked if they spoke English and one replied, in her Russian accent, “a leetle”.  When we asked her which subway to take to the hotel

She said:          “We are going that way follow us.”

Oddly enough we saw several levels from which to approach the Metro.  We needed to take the Metro on the second level. Interestingly, I was going to take the Metro on the first level. Thank God for the flight attendants.  If we hadn’t met them I wouldn’t want to imagine where we might have ended up.

Upon arrival to the hotel we noticed that the flight attendants began going back towards downtown.  My cousin asked, “didn’t they say that they were going the way to the hotel?”  My other cousin and I said “yes”.  Then the reply came, “why then are they going back towards downtown?”

We all thought it was odd and yet interesting.  If they were angels their actions spoke to us that they were going the way to the hotel for our sakes.   After all they only said that they were going that “way”.  They did not say that they were actually going to the hotel.  Were they angels?  I don’t know for sure but there are some interesting points to consider.

                Had we gone to the Metro station I originally planned on we would have missed them.

Soviets who speak English are very rare. In addition, neither of us spoke any Russian.  The directions

            I was originally given to get back to the hotel were incomplete and if we had not encountered the  flight attendants we would have taken the wrong subway. No telling where we would have ended up.  We needed help.  We ended up at the hotel without incident.

 

The Return Home

 

Upon our arrival back to New York City we gathered our baggage and promptly sought a taxi to the hotel.  Getting into the taxi we noticed the driver speaking “broken” English with a strong European accent.  We asked him where he was from.  He said:  “The Ukraine”.  He went on to share that he had lust arrived in the United States.

In a city of thousands and thousands of taxi cabs I can’t believe that meeting this man was mere coincidence.  Think of it, the last person with whom I spoke before I left for the Soviet Union was of Russian heritage and the first person I spoke with upon my return was of Ukrainian descent.  Both countries being members of the former Soviet Union.

After arriving back in Cedar Rapids, Iowa I shared with friends  and relatives the prophetic word that God gave me,  The responses were varied.  Some accepted it. Some were puzzled and some, I’m sure thought I had a great imagination.

 

 

The Young Russian Woman

 

In 1994, after moving to Los Angeles, California,  I was at a church service where I met a young Russian woman.  Wanting to encourage her I shared my experience in Russia.  After the church service was over she came to express a word of encouragement to me.

            She said that for thirteen years after accepting the Lord she tried to leave the Soviet Union but was prevented by the government. Then, the same year I went to the Soviet Union and for some unknown reason the government decided to change their mind and let her go.

 

Deliverance for the Soviet Union…Warning for America

 

Shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union the Lord spoke these words to me:

                        “I view a nation as a person.  For example I called the

                        Israelites by the name of Jacob.

 

            The Soviet Union having been one “person”  has lust experienced an exorcism of the spirit of the Anti-Christ. Now that same spirit is looking for another “host body”   It has found one in America who has rejected Me and my statutes of life.

The Church is the spirit and conscience of America.  Will she rise up and expel the evil which has begun to possess her “body and soul” or neglect her moral responsibilities?

The Soviet Union collapsed in the same manner as the Lord Prophesied to me.  What is interesting is that it happened through the prayers and actions of people   It did not come with a bolt of lightning from heaven.  It came through the hand of people as they were moved by their heart’s hunger for freedom and the Spirit of God which opened the “door” for their deliverance.  Much the same way that God opened the Red Sea for the Hebrews to leave Egypt.  He parted the water and they walked through.

When the Berlin wall came down it was hammered and chiseled by people who wanted to be free.  It was God’s favor and power combined with their labor and effort which brought down the wall of bondage.  We can surely see that God reigns in the kingdoms of man through the hearts, mind and hand of men and women who are obedient to God because of their love for Him.

22 Years Later…

In about 1989 the prophecy of the destruction of the Soviet Union came to pass just like the Lord prophesied to me when I was in the Soviet union seven years earlier.  Even though I knew it was God who spoke to me then I was awe struck.  I then asked the Lord:  “What is next?”

            God spoke to me again saying  the demon spirits of the anti-christ have been exorcised from the eastern block countries..  That  demon spirit is roaming dry places for another  host.  It found one in America—be warned..

 

America Today—Prophesy Fulfilled

 

The manifestation of the spirit of anti-christ which used communism in the Soviet Union

 

has now manifested in the United States in various forms.

 

One predominant form is homosexuality.  This lifestyle virtually attempts to do to

 

Christians and the nation what communism did to in the Soviet Union.

For example,

Rise of Homosexuality

In 2015The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of homosexual marriage.

Most people react to this as a left win by the court outside the Constitution.

While the liberals praised the ruling as embracing “equality’ and conservatives decried it as evil and unconstitutional there is another important perspective e.g.  God.

In this book I wrote about the “Law of Subjective Responsibility”

By definition this means that whatever the government rulers or kings do that aligns with or against God’s will, resultsin the consequences of blessing or curse to fall on those over whom they govern.

 

For example, when Pharoah would not let Israel go, the ten plagues fell on ALL the people of Egypt—and they had no voice in government.  When  Abrham believed and was obedient to God it brought God’s blessing to all Israel.

 

So it is for the United States government.  Their policies and ruling brought forth and will ring the judgement of God upon the nation.

Shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union we began to see an aggressive push by homosexual

 

individuals and organization.  They actively pursued control of the political arena, judicial

 

system and even the churches.  Combine this with the moral disintegration of moral values in

 

many churches and the nation makes a favorable ground for growth.

 

One of the hindrances blocking their agenda is the Church and those ascribing to moral

 

conservatism.  Consequently, we saw a rise of hate crimes.  In Iowa the Supreme Court struck

 

down a marriage amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.  In California

 

Prop 8, an initiative voted by the people defines marriage between a man and woman.  It was

 

struck down by a Federal Judge.  It is now under appeal.  It is illegal in Canada to criticize

 

homosexuality based on biblical values.  There are now non-discrimination laws in many states

 

protecting homosexuality and giving special rights to homosexuals.  Even the U.S. Supreme

 

Court struck down a sodomy law in Texas and a Colorado state constitutional amendment and

 

also the recent repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

.

One of the big problems manifesting with this new invasion of the spirit of antichrist is

 

that it predominantly uses homosexuality to marginalize the gospel and the church.

 

In many instances the spirit of antichrist uses homosexuality in America in the same

 

manner it used communism in the Soviet Union I.e. marginalize and attack the church as

 

enemies of the state.

 

I personally was discriminated against when the leader of a human trafficking coalition

 

attacked me for my moral beliefs saying I want to take people’s right’s away” i.e. take away

 

homosexual marriage.

 

Anti Christian persecution:  For years the Catholic church has received funds for thei

 

r great work helping victims of human trafficking.   Recently they lost their funding because of

 

their moral values.

 

Students at high school graduations and athletic events are forbidden from saying prayers

 

The name of “Jesus” was prohibited to be used military prayers by chaplains and other

 

government burial sites.

 

The time tested tradition of Manger scenes have come under assault by atheist and anti

 

religious groups.  Fortunately many pro family and religious freedom groups have prevailed in

 

many cases.

 

Capitalism vs. Socialism:  For the last several years the free market enterprise which

 

brought down the Soviet Union is beginning to be supplanted by those calling for everyone to

 

receive their “fair share” , and the wealthy need to pay their fare share of taxes.  By the way,

 

who defines “fare share”.  It was the opportunity provided by America given to everyone to gain

 

wealth that grew America’s wealth.  By the way, this wealth has been used to feed billions,

 

provide medicine and more.

 

Below is a recent article/press release I distributed:

Socialism vs. Capitalism

 

Ironically, the relative economic philosophies are beginning to trade places.

 

For over 200 years the capitalist system of economics basically said to the people of America that here is the opportunity to work hard, be creative, provide a great service or product, treat people fairly and honestly and you can be prosperous.

 

Now  we have a president and a political party that wants to take our wealth and according to their dictates, distribute to others.  Even so far as vilainizing the most prosperous when in fact they should be an economic role model.

 

The Spiritual Dynamic

 

There is a spiritual dynamic to the economic systems of a nation.  Socialism dominates and controls the national economic system.  This prevailed during the days of the Soviet union.  I was there and saw the suffering of the people.  Meat stores empty, Clothing was allthe same and drab.  Cars were scarce and most people traveled by metro.

 

Below, please note the recent press release by Tony Nassif

 

Dear friends,

In recent days we’ve seen massive demonstrations against “Wall Street”

The demonstrators direct their anger at the economy and the perceived cuprit of Wall Street and capitalism.

Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Who/What is to Blame:
To blame capitalism for the current economic crisis is like blaming a car for adrunkdriving accident. Adrunkdriving accident is caused by the driver. So is the current economic crisis caused by those who have abbrogated their moral values putting the profit motive above moral standards of right and wrong. This ignores the root of the problem which is a moral disintegration.

Profit is great within the boundaries of morals, ethics and law. For the government to allow anyone to file for amortgage with only “stated income” without documentation, to focus on profit at all costs and without regard to long term effect justifying the means to the end leads us to the warning of the Apostle Paul who said “…the love of money is the root of all evil…”

Capitalism is the greatest economic system known to man.

The capitalist system provides incentives for anyone to take their creative ideas and produce products and services that improve the lives of others while at the same time providing benefits of increased income, employment of staff. One great example is Steve Jobs when he created Apple. Do we need to detail the products created that produced great profits and products which improved the lives of people throughout the world.

Let’s keep in mind that the capitalist system built America’s greatness. However, the drive for profit was governed by the moral foundation that the founders of the nation establised as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

“We therefore, the representatives, assemble in Congress, submit the rectitude of our intentions to the Supreme Judge of the World.” This Supreme Judge of the world has standards of right and wrong with consequences of blessing or judgement.

The Lebanese Experience in America

One of the greatest testimonies of the benefits of the capitalist system are the Lebanese people who came to America.

My father came to America from Lebanon when he was eight years old. The capitalist system in America provided him the opportunityto prosper, build wealth and to willingly (not by government compulsion) give of his wealth to those in need and less fortunate. He built wealth to support his family, educated his family and made contributions of service to his community.

The Lebanese people are known for their capitalist free market work and lives. This heritage goes back thousands of years to their ancestors, the Phoenicians known for their freetrade. They were the first to bridge barriers with other cultures seeking to do business and mutual benefit with those people they met.

The Phoenicians looked past the cultural differences to build economic alliances. Thus, the capitalist system is a great remedy to racism.

Socialism is an Anti-christ economic government system

Jesus never told the government to care for the sick and needy. He directed that to the Church.

God Created the Capitalist System. Socialism stifles the creative capacity God imputed into the heart of mankind. Socialism enlaves mankind and sifles their God-given creativity. Remember the Soviet Union? Remember China under Chairman Mao? Remember Castro’s Cuba?

What?!!! God is a Capitalist? Absolutely. Here’s why

When God made the earth He gave all of it to Adam to care and enjoy it. When Solomon only asked for wisdom to govern his people God made him wealthy that gold was given to him by the barge load. Jesus said that to give it would be given abundantly. The Apostle John said “Beloved I would that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” III John 2. The Apostle Paul says “God has given us all these things to enjoy.

 

Finally, in Deuteronomy 8 and 9 , God said “I’m the one who gives you power to get wealth.”

The Solution

 

The only solution to economic problems is to release the shackles that have bound the creative nature God established while at the same time returning to the sound moral values that provided the foundation for America for hundreds of years.   This can only come through the government and those who holds the authority of governmental power.  This can only happen when people of sound moral values hold those offices and implement policy consistent with God’s mandate.
These government leaders can only do this when they are elected to those offices of government.

 

Reagan the Emissary of God

In early 2012, I was having lunch with Michael Reagan, President Reagan’s son.  I told him this story about the fall of the Soviet Union, my trip there and the role of God’s plan for his father, President Reagan.

I recalled to him the time after President Reagan was shot on Monday, March 30, 1981.   It was a few months later that God began to deal with me about going to the Soviet Union and my subsequent trip when the Lord prophesied to me the destruction of the Soviet Empire.

I shared that in response to President Reagan’s realization that God saved him.  He virtually said that God saved him and his life and presidency belongs to God.  He began to make his decisions about the Soviet Union based on his own conviction of heart which sometime brought him into conflict with the diplomats at the State Department.  For example, when President Reagan was preparing his remarks at the Berlin wall he had written the statement “Mr. Gorbochev, tear down this wall.”  The State Department discouraged this seemingly inflammatory language.  President Reagan left it in.  Unbeknown to many and most likely President Reagan, his statement carried a powerful spiritual dynamic.

In this book I wrote about the fact that the head of government is a ministry as well as a political secular office.  Thus, what the head of state chooses has an effect on those whom they govern just like what happened to Egypt when Pharoah would not let Israel go and the plagues came on all the nation of Egypt even though only Pharoah rebelled against God.

President Reagan was hand picked by God to destroy the Soviet Union.  Therefore, by him speaking the words “…tear down this wall…” He implemented the powerful words of Jesus who said:

                        “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever               says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but   believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Mark 11:22,23

President Reagan spoke the destruction of the Berlin wall which symbolized the Soviet Union.  God responded by pouring out his Spirit destroying the Soviet Empire.

 

 

 

President Reagan in the office of Prophet and President

          President Reagan Joins a Growing Group Mixing Politics and Faith

Nathan the Prophet,

John the Baptist, 

St. Ambrose of Milan, 

John Chrysostom

President Ronald Reagan

Considering  that President Reagan was compelled by God to change world history and set the captives free, I’m reminded about the lives of various men demonstrating God’s move through them

King David

                        “And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue

                                    after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he [God] answered him,

                                    Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

I Samuel 30:8

God intended to give David the victory but he required David to attack and not sit back and say “God’s will is going to be done”  God told him if David attacked then He would delivered the enemy into his hands.

Nathan the Prophet

Another example Godly men standing up to the government leaders is related when David committed adultery with Bath Sheba and making her pregnant.  She was the wife of Uriah, David’s trusted and loyal soldier,

David tried to cover up the pregnancy by ordering Uriah to take time off and sleep with his wife.  Out of loyalty, Uriah refused and slept on the doorstep.

When this leak didn’t work David ordered Uriah be sent into the heat of battle for the purpose of letting him be killed by the enemy thereby making the problem go away.

One day the Prophet Nathan came to him telling about a man who had a multitude of sheep but he stole the one little lamp a poor man had.  David became enraged saying that whoever did this would be put to death.  Nathan responded:  David, “you are that man”.

David repented because the Prophet spoke the word.

John the Baptist

            The one least expected to involve himself into government is John the Baptist.  He came out of the wildnerness eating locusts and honey.  Total rejection of the world system.

Yet he was not shy about confronting government leaders for their immorality and oppression of people.

When he encountered Herod and his wife (sister-in-law) he openly rebuked them for their immorality.  This ultimately cost him his life.

When the soldiers and publicans came to him they asked what they should do.  Instead of shying away from the questions John the Baptist said to the publican not to collect more tax than they should and to the soldier he said not to do harm.

            Ambrose of Milan

            In the 5th Century Bishop Ambrose of Milan rebuked the emperor for authorizing a massacre of people in Thessalonica.  He even forbid him to take communion until he opening repented—-the emperor repented.

So it is with President Reagan.  God basically said that if he would resist the Soviets God would deliver them into his hand.  So it was.

He was God’s hand to deliver the world and millions of people from the bondage of communist socialism dominated by the Soviet Union.

America is in need of more government leaders submitted to the will of God to defend the defenseless and protect the innocent and the moral foundations of our security.

 

President Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan not only was the political and government leader of America his leadership confronted an aggressive political philosophy but he was also leading the free world to confront an anti-christ system that enslaved millions with a global geo-political goal of world domination.

Thus the battle of the Cold War was fought in the geo political sense but just as important is the battlefield of the spiritual war inspired by the anti-God, anti-Christ tyranny.

President Reagan led the fight and the world won.  We all owe him a debt of thanks.

God rest his soul.  Thank you, Mr. President.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BY TONY NASSIF
OCTOBER 22, 2014
HOUSTON PASTORS 2 THE PROPHETIC WARNING

As a follow up to the previous release regarding the Houston Pastors who were legally assaulted with subpoenas because of their stand on homosexuality I reaffirm that this would not have happened if the mayor and other related government officials were elected.

Why were they elected? Lazy, ignorant pastors and Chritians through their civic responsibilities and biblical values were thrown into a trash heap.  Consequently the judgement of God will fall on those who are negligent

Finally, this is the beginning of a massive move by the demonic realm to shut the mouth of pastors and Christians and to marginalizes the church from spreading the gospel.  You will see a correlation with the former Soviet Union which used communism to  persecute and silence the Church.

In 1981 God sent me to the Soviet Union where he prophesied its destruction and the consequences for America and the dire warning to the Church.

I wrote about this in the attached chapter entitled RUSSIA YESTERDAY, AMERICA TODAY first published in 1996.  Read it and be warned.  Judgement day is upon us   Russia Yesterday. Word doc

Seamless Connections Between Pornography and Sex Trafficking Highlighted in New Website

Morality in Media launches StopTraffickingDemand.com

Washington, DC – Morality in Media is excited to announce today’s launch of StopTraffickingDemand.com, a site dedicated to educating about the major factor creating and driving demand for trafficked women and children – pornography. The site will bring together research, expert testimony and personal accounts to help the public understand that there is a seamless connection between both forms of exploitation.

Morality in Media’s StopTraffickingDemand.com will provide advocates and organizations with actions they can take to help curb the demand for sex trafficking. Education materials, research, quotes, and videos, as well as stories from survivors, demonstrate the link between pornography and sex trafficking. MIM invites advocates to use any materials on the website in the fight to end sexual exploitation.

“This new website has been a labor of love. We really hope it affects people, educating them and showing that there is something we can do to curb the demand for buying women and children,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of Morality in Media. “The links are real. The demand caused by pornography traps people in trafficking daily.”

Links between pornography and sex trafficking include: porn-users often seek to act out what they have viewed in pornography; pornography is often used as a training tool to show victims how to perform; pimps often use pornography to advertise their victims and to make more money; trafficking takes place within the mainstream porn industry.

Founded in 1962, Morality in Media, Inc. is the leading national organization dedicated to opposing pornography through education about its illegality and harms by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse and addiction.
