I copied and pasted an email I received about Costco is Now saying Merry Christmas. I thought it only fair since I posted when they refused to say Merry Christmas that I also post that they have changed their mind and are now saying Merry Christmas! I didn't realize that when you copy and paste sometimes things are cut off...Anyway the gist of the email was thanks to those who took the time to email and phone Costco about refusing to acknowledge Christmas in their ads and stores.

I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live.
Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the Lord hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?
Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.
For I have not sent them, saith the Lord, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.
Also I spake to the priest and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the Lord's house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon for they prophesy a lie unto you.
Hearken not unto them, serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?
But if they be prophets, and if the word of the Lord be with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem go not to Babylon.
God tells His people through the prophet Jeremiah that if they go submit and serve the king of Babylon-that they will live and if they don't they will die. God wants His people to live. He promises that He will deliver them in His time. God tells them that their prophets who are prophesying in His name and they are liars and that He did not send them. I pray that we would be like those who obeyed God. How could anyone choose to accept captivity without a relationship with God? Without Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Word of God -how would we know who to believe? How would we have the strength and courage to willingly go into captivity? Even today there exist those who will "prophesy" to us and they are misleading some to disobey God. I pray that we will know the voice of our Lord and savior. Jesus said His sheep know His voice...I believe we know Him and His voice through His word. I thank God for His word.

The article below ran on December 2nd in the online “ ,” and illustrates how Shariah-compliant finance is establishing a foothold in American financial and insurance markets. As we all know, AIG is the recipient of a massive government bailout (translation: our tax dollars).
Take special note of the shariah-compliant supervisory board. Muhammed Imran Usmani is the son and disciple of Muhammed Taki Usmani. The elder Usmani is a “who’s who” in the Islamist world and an outspoken proponent of aggressive jihad. For example, he has issued numerous fatwas (religious rulings) that provide material support for terrorism.
The danger of getting in bed with well-known advocates of jihad and terrorism should be obvious to anyone who takes even a cursory look. It was Lenin who stated “The capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” In their thirst for capital and profits, the same corporate geniuses who gave us the sub-prime meltdown are going Lenin one better. At least the capitalists in Lenin’s day didn’t put him on their advisory boards and give him control over where money can be invested.
So as we connect the dots we see that (1) our tax dollars are being used to bail out a huge insurance conglomerate that (2) is now offering shariah-compliant insurance that (3) is under the direction of an advisory board that includes the son and disciple of one of the world’s leading advocates of Islamic terrorism. In 2009 we are going to need the help of every one of our members to start putting the brakes on this insanity.
AIG Offers First Takaful Homeowners Insurance Product for U.S.
December 2, 2008
Risk Specialists Companies, Inc. (RSC), a subsidiary of AIG Commercial Insurance, is introducing what it says is a first in the U.S.: a homeowners insurance product that is compliant with key Islamic finance tenets and based on the concept of .
The Takaful Homeowners Policy is underwritten through RSC member company A.I. Risk Specialists Insurance, Inc., in conjunction with Lexington Insurance Co. and in association with AIG Takaful Enaya. Headquartered in Bahrain, AIG Takaful Enaya was established in 2006 to provide Takaful products, including accident and health, auto, energy, property and casualty products.
The Takaful home policy is the first installment in Lexington Takaful Solutions, a series of Shari'ah-compliant (Takaful) product offerings in the U.S.
According to Ernst & Young's 2008 World Takaful Report, Takaful was estimated to be a $5.7 billion market globally with over 130 providers in 2006. The Takaful market is estimated to be in excess of $10 billion by 2010.
Takaful is similar to mutual insurance and cooperative risk sharing but there are key differences including a clear segregation of funds owned by participants and those owned by the insurance operations entity. Investments of funds are also restricted to avoid companies involved in entertainment, alcohol, pork and other elements prohibited by Islamic law.
Muslim countries only account for 5 percent of the global insurance market although they represent 25 percent of the world's population, according to AIG, which launched its Takaful operation in October 2006.
The Takaful Homeowners Policy builds on LexElite, the homeowners policy from Lexington that is sold throughout the U.S. The Takaful Homeowners Policy is available in all 50 states.
According to Jim Crain, associate vice president and personal lines underwriting director for Risk Specialists, the coverage, terms, commissions and sales proceduers are the same for this new products as they are for LexElite.
"The introduction of Takaful products in the U.S. represents an important and emerging growth opportunity for AIG Commercial Insurance. We are pleased to offer socially responsible solutions to this segment of the domestic market," said Matthew F. Power, president, Risk Specialists Companies, Inc.
AIG Takaful Enaya is licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain and its Shari'ah Supervisory Board is composed of Shari'ah scholars Sheikh Nizam Yaquby, Dr. Mohammed Ali Elgari and Dr. Muhammad Imran Usmani.
Risk Specialists Companies, Inc. is a U.S. surplus lines broker providing access to specialty casualty, property and personal lines insurance from Lexington and other AIG companies.

In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,
Thus saith the Lord to me: Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,
And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon,, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;
and command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.
And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him
And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon that nation will I punish, saith the Lord, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.
Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon.
For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.
But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the Lord; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.
This is a very hard word to hear and a hard word to speak forth . God had given Israel a time to return to Him and repent. Israel refused. Now God through Jeremiah tell the children of Israel they are to enter into a time of captivity...if they submit then God will let them remain in their own land...if they attempt to escape and not submit then the Lord said He would punish them with the sword, pestilence and famine. It is not a light thing to defy God. God also warns them not to listen to false prophets - these prophets would take them out of the Land. They choose not to serve God they refused to repent ...so now they will serve Nebuchadnezzar as captives. But God did not want them to lose the land. Elsewhere in the bible we are told to choose this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. We're going to serve someone...I would rather serve the one who created and loves me. Why would we refuse to serve God? Do we not take Him seriously-have we been deceived into thinking that God will not correct us-that He will not use non believers to serve His perfect will in us? I know of so many people who suddenly woke up and now do not know what to do...actually there are also some who have been awake and fighting the good fight who do not know what to do...wait on God...get in His Word...get to know Him..His sheep knows His voice...study with those who are walking with God...Trust God...handle prophecy as it lines up with the Word of God...I love reading Alice's blog because she always has an encouraging word that fills my heart and mind with peace...that confirms no matter what we are going through God can be trusted...God loves us and will keep His promise...He ask that we Love Him with all our hearts and that we obey Him...We need to keep our eyes on Jesus...view our present time through Him...Stand in Him...that is our place of safety...Trust God and encourage each other in Him...
