Christian Voters Play Key Role in Upcoming Elections
Eileen Townsend, Christian activist and author of America's Role in Revelation, has launched a campaign to mobilize the Christian community this election season. Ms. Townsend is urging Christian voters to support candidates for whom the restoration of all Biblically based rights, freedoms, and principles would be a priority if they are elected. The complacency that has gripped the Christian community as of late has led to the slow decline of American values and the destruction of our freedoms, yet as Ms. Townsend reveals in the pages of her book, all hope is not lost. Christians must rise together and take action now. This action begins with a vote.
America's Role in Revelation awakens even the most skeptical of readers. It is here, in exciting detail, that Ms. Townsend distills the Book of Revelation, revealing its true message. It is her contention that God rebukes the One World Government, and supports our resistance to it. Through biblical references, Ms. Townsend shows that America is not symbolized in the Book of Revelation, a discovery that she believes proves God's will, and urges us to take heed. On her website, she warns "We, God's people, must vote in men and women that will reestablish Godly principles and save our nation before it is too late. We cannot afford to allow America to fail -- God is watching us."
Eileen Townsend has been an intercessor since 1980. She works as a nurse, owned a pharmaceutical company, and helped launch several companies. She is a mother and a grandmother, and holds her family dear. Her nurturing disposition and love of God motivates her fight for the preservation of God's word and the restoration of mankind. A political activist for 40 years, Ms. Townsend has participated in multiple public speaking engagements, including her interview most recently on GCIN Radio, which may be heard by visiting: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/usainprophecy/2012/09/30/eta-interviews-with-eileen-townsend-america-in-revelation#.UGjRpgevPts.email

Artist Rejects Patriarchal Society and Empowers Woman to Forge New Pathway
Kimberly Berg has awakened the ancient goddess! A male feminist artist, Berg's work challenges the patriarchal system that has evolved to dominate our world by exposing it as a system that is not only unworkable and unsustainable, but also unjust. Guided by the prehistoric record, which shows evidence that pre-patriarchal Neolithic societies respected and honored their women, Berg believes that we are approaching the tipping point of patriarchal dominance as women gain the confidence to reclaim their inherent birthright. And just to be sure a feminist transformation is underway, Berg has heaved the final stones necessary to tip the scale by launching a campaign to educate the public on the history of women's culture and the factors that led to its unfortunate subjugation.
Berg has recently unveiled The Legacy of the Goddess, a power point presentation which outlines the forgotten pre-history of women's culture and highlights the revered role of woman in Neolithic societies. By bringing his message to classrooms and community centers across the country, Berg hopes to restore the female voice so that she may dance once again into the wind.
Kimberly Berg holds a Bachelor of Science in History from the University of Wisconsin, with a concentration in Ancient History. He lives a self-sustaining life of voluntary simplicity in a Thoreau-like cabin, surrounded by the trees and wildlife of the Adirondack Mountains. Without electricity and with only a wood burning stove for heat in this sometimes harsh climate, Berg has forged an essential pact with nature and has learned to respect and appreciate the elements of his lifestyle that have become extinct in modern society. His interest in women's advocacy was sparked by a book written by Layne Redmond entitled When Drummers Were Women, which opened his eyes to the historical decline in women's stature and the urgent necessity that both genders work together to restore equality for the greater good of humanity.
