The Prophetic Significance of Mexicans Claiming America is Stolen, Occupied Mexico

by Bill Wilson

Ron Gochez, a high school social studies teacher in Los Angeles, attended a revolution rally on the campus of UCLA over the weekend. He told students that throughout the Americas there was a new revolution. He said, “Its not just about Mexico. Its about a global struggle against imperialism and capitalism. But, we know that all of that is happening in the context of where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico. And the message we bring, if you want to bring a little bit more of a revolutionary context to this, why is it that these people, these frail, racist white people wanna keep us out of this country? …We see ourselves as the Northern front of a Latin American revolutionary movement.”
Gochez said that there were some 40 million Mexicans in America and that each one was a potential revolutionary. He said that their goal was to take over the United States and make it a country like Venezuela or other socialist nations in this hemisphere. His plan was strikingly similar to that of the Muslim Brotherhood’s 1991 plan to create a “civilization jihad” in the United States by invading the country with Muslims, establishing mosques and Islamic centers, and taking over communities by establishing Sharia law. The Muslim Brotherhood plan is for “Islam and its movement [to] become a part of the homeland it lives in.”


Understanding James

A Question to Jack Kelley


Q. My question concerns the letter to the church by James, especially James 2:14-2:26.  This sounds to me like a works based salvation and not only faith based. It seems to me the letters to the Jewish Christians puts forward a work based salvation and the letters by Paul a faith based salvation. Is not the letters written to the Jewish Christians written to those that will be in the great tribulation? If you look at the salutation it does not mention the church but the tribes of Israel.

A. Your confusion demonstrates the danger of trying to combine grace and works into a formula for salvation.  One would never be sure of doing enough and instead of having an assurance of salvation would live in constant fear of falling short, and not knowing until it’s too late.
