Why is Australia on self-destruct?

25/04/2009

by Ken E Murray.

Here is a copy of a letter I have just sent to one of our outspoken politicians …who still has some backbone …in the hope that he might say something more to alert Australians, in an area of where this Government has us on a self-destruct course.

“Why doesn’t this Australian Government invest our taxpayers money into real capital assets …like, buying what the Chinese want.

For example, why don’t we Australian taxpayers buy a controlling number of shares in OZ Minerals and retain the 2nd biggest zinc mine in the world, Century mine? We could buy the whole shebang for around $1.5billion.

We would then be able to preserve Australian jobs and stop the Chinese Government from nationalising some of our richest turf as part of China.

You know Barnaby, once the Chinese are happily owning a critical mass of Australia’s best resources …they will invoke the 457 Visa, using our own laws …and import their own “skilled labour” coolie workforce at vastly reduced wages.

We could also take a share in Rio Tinto in the same way …rather than spraying borrowed Chinese Bond money all over the world and to criminals. druggies, drinkers and poker machine players.

Then when the Economy picks up again we could sell half our share holdings in these companies and get our money back …as well as retaining our other half of shares and collecting dividends for us Taxpayers.

Why isn’t any politician suggesting some sensible investments of our hard won taxpayers money??

Today, our Diggers, on Anzac Day, figuratively must be moaning and groaning in their graves …to see how our beloved Australia is stealthily being invaded and taken over, piece by valuable resource-rich piece …and how cheaply their sacrifice, paid with their own blood, is being sold for less than a bowl of soup!

Why isn’t someone saying these things in Parliament?”

You know, we need a biblical Joseph or Daniel in charge of Australia, now, more than in any time in our history.

Meantime …keep pumpin’!

Coming …the War to end all wars

22/04/2009

by Ken E Murray

At dawn this coming Saturday, 25 April many Australian’s will stop, to remember generations of our brave soldiers …men and women …who sacrificed their lives or put their lives on the line for Australia.

 Australians such as my wife’s Grandfather, Hubert, served in the Boer War in South Africa, in 1900. Her father, Robert, served in the worst wars in all history, both the 1st World War and the 2nd World War.

My Grandfather, Charles, also served in World War 1.  It was reputed to be such a dreadful traumatic war that it was declared to be: “The War to end all wars” (Woodrow Wilson, President USA).

Well, in actual fact through the horrific wars of the 20th Century more than 102,000 Australian servicemen and women died in war. This 2009 year will be the 95th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.

Insanely, despite the mass casualties suffered in World War I and World War II, the world remains in conflict today.

“Wars and rumours of wars” (Matthew 24:6) continue to rage, and the innocent continue suffer death and maiming, causing us all to ask: “Is war our permanent condition?”

Is it necessary for every generation go through war to relearn why there should be no war?

For everyone who has died tragically in war, there is a very personal story, of a family changed forever.

What is the cause of War?   For every effect there is a spiritual cause.

James 4:1-2 gives us the cause of why we have war?

“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

You lust, and have not: you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not.”

Notice that is our own human nature of lust, vanity, jealousy and greed that leads people into war.

Yes, the 1st World War 1914-1918 was supposed to be the “War to end all wars” …but was it?

No …World War II, 1939-1945 followed …and numerous subsequent blood baths …but still no end to war.

So let’s ask ourselves a question?

Does the Bible speak of a war to end all wars?

Well, it may serve as a surprise to many who read this, but …yes it does.

There is coming a War to end all wars …and the combatants in this war, would surprise most people …especially the well-informed in matters of news and geopolitics.

To provide you with the information about what is brewing in the world, that will hatch out into the real “War to end all wars” …can I suggest that you check out: Book of Revelation Unveiled and Are We Living in the Time of the End

Meantime …keep pumpin’!
