AMERICAN UNDER SIEGE – 2022 – The Series

Introduction

The intended purposes of this article are to correctly frame the context of current and past world events and the inexorable march toward a Socialist-Marxist One World Government, from a Biblical worldview, and to outline actionable steps of what we can and must take.

American culture, societal norms, family structures, personal freedoms, legacy and history are being desecrated, destroyed and dissolved. Our Constitutional ‘guarantees’ are being ignored, violated and negated. You might say our Constitution is being shredded right before our eyes, and no one is doing anything to stop it.

     The Democrat Party in America has adopted and is practicing Socialist-Marxism.  Their plan is the dissolution of our way of life with the plan of merging the United States into a confederation of a one world government (see, “Our Global Neighborhood“)

​     The so-called Conservative leadership in America is either complicit, or has become ineffective, self-serving and cowardly – or both.  Conservatives in congress are being soundly defeated in a political war for the soul and existence of America, which they don’t understand, using outdated methods against a foe who is expert at a new style of guerrilla warfare.

​     We are losing, and in fact, may have already lost our nation, our freedoms and our way of life, and it is getting worse.

I will give a secular and Bible historical timelines revealing the progression and the reasons for how we have reached this point in time – and where we are headed, both as a nation and as a global community. I will also give instructions on how to navigate these treacherous days and solutions.

There are three realities at play here. One is this natural world in which we live. The other reality is the ‘hidden world’ of ideas and thoughts which only come to light when acted upon. This second world is where the collision of the ‘hidden world’ and the ‘unseen world’ collide. The third is the ‘spiritual world’.

The “Unseen World’ is where everything, both seen and hidden, originate, but not like the imaginary world of ghosts or goblins.  This Spiritual world is called, in the Bible, by various names such as ‘The Kingdom of Heaven’ or ‘The Kingdom of God’. The Spiritual world is the real ‘unseen’ world of God.

So, when talking about and exploring past, current or developing events in our natural world, it is wise and prudent to remember that these things were spoken of and written about at length, centuries ago, in the Jewish Bible (also called the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh which is another term for what Christians call the Old Testament portion of the Bible.)

Understanding the past and the prophecies which have come to pass and are now appearing to us, will help you navigate the difficulties you are now facing, and even greater difficulties which are coming, and are in fact, now at hand.

Finally, ignoring these current realities, and coming events, are at your own peril.

(What We Can And Must DO About It)

​     Everything you read in this article, “America Under Siege”, has been foretold through Biblical prophecy over 2,800 years ago.  Various New Testament writings by Jesus and the Apostles Paul, John and Peter, brought some clarity to these prophecies and gave clues to timelines along with certain instructions and warnings.

​     The intended purposes of this article are to correctly frame the context of current and past world events and the inexorable march toward a Socialist-Marxist One World Government, from a Biblical worldview, and to outline actionable steps of what we can and must take.

American culture, societal norms, family structures, personal freedoms, legacy and history are being desecrated, destroyed and dissolved. Our Constitutional ‘guarantees’ are being ignored, violated and negated. You might say our Constitution is being shredded right before our eyes, and no one is doing anything to stop it.

     The Democrat Party in America has adopted and is practicing Socialist-Marxism.  Their plan is the dissolution of our way of life with the plan of merging the United States into a confederation of a one world government (see, “Our Global Neighborhood“)

​     The so-called Conservative leadership in America is either complicit, or has become ineffective, self-serving and cowardly – or both.  Conservatives in congress are being soundly defeated in a political war for the soul and existence of America, which they don’t understand, using outdated methods against a foe who is expert at a new style of guerrilla warfare.

​     We are losing, and in fact, may have already lost our nation, our freedoms and our way of life, and it is getting worse.

     The Marxist organization, UNESCO, through their Agenda 21, over the past 75 years, have developed an advanced framework for the dissolution of every nation’s sovereignty and borders. Their plan, “when implemented, will bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood managed by a world-wide bureaucracy, under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals, and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, certified to support a belief system which contains ideas that are foreign to the American experience, and ignores other values and ideas that are precious to the American experience.” (The Commission on Global Governance, 1996; also see, Global Governance, Our Global Neighborhood, The Report of the Commission on Global Governance)

​     There was a World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in New York City, NY, USA, September 15-17, 2015, in which a date of 2030 has been set for complete global dominance by this Marxist global movement.

     As of this date, August 31, 2021, these Globalists, have been embedded in the U.S. Government, in our legal system at every level, in our religious systems, in our churches, in our school, colleges and institutions of higher education. Over 528 American cities are members of “Local Governments for Sustainability”, which is the Agenda 21 program at the local level.  Also known as ICLEI”, an international Marxist and Socialist leaning sustainability organization, that helps to implement the Agenda 21 and Local Agenda 21 concepts across the world. The United States has nearly half of the ICLEI’s global membership of 1,200 cities promoting sustainable development at a local level. (Former presidents, Bill Clinton and George Bush, were responsible for promoting and implementing these Marxists programs in America.)

​     UNESCO, Agenda 21 and their various entities are using Marxist methods to erase and eradicate the culture, history and legacy of the countries and nations both in Europe and in America.

​     It is made more difficult to stop the dissolution of our America, since we, in America, have forgotten the principles upon which our country was built.  The principles which made America the greatest nation the world has ever seen  are principles which spring from the Judeo-Christian ethos.  This is reflected in all our founding documents and in the personalities and lives of our founding fathers.

​     The spiritual evil swallowing our Nation has always lurked in our world, infecting and infesting the minds of people who, then, manifest this evil on earth, killing, stealing and destroying everything good.  Because of our Nation was founded on Biblical principles, and our nation trusted and followed God, we have been protected and blessed.  Now, we have gone our own way and forgotten God and His Ways, and judgment has come.

Any attempt to win back our Nation and our freedoms will take an extraordinary effort, supreme personal sacrifice and a lifetime effort, and there are very few willing to make such a commitment.

​     But, there still may be hope. There are still some Americans willing to carry this fight to the enemy, and would be willing to make the commitment if they knew who to follow, knew just what to do and how to do it. But it appears there will be no help from the leadership of any existing political, social or religious organization. It would have to be a true grassroots movement with a new type of leadership. It will take fearless men and women who are full of faith in God, who will not compromise on God’s Word and Ways, who will not surrender nor will they quit, even in the face of ruin or death.

​     The following pages will articulate the steps we must take to engage the enemy and drive this manifest evil from our land.  I have abbreviated, simplified these steps, but they will work if you and I will do them.  It will take each one of us doing our part.

So, please, as God’s people, let’s stop living in fear and confusion.  Let’s stop lamenting, crying, complaining and despairing and let’s get to work.  Please follow this link to page 2, “OUR STRUGGLE”

​“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, and the accuser of our brethren will be thrown down, that is, he who accuses us before our God day and night. And we will overcome him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of our testimony, and we do not love our life even when faced with death.”

(Paraphrase of Revelation 12:10-11)

The Marxist Dialectic Methodology

(You can listen to this audio while you read along, then, you can stop the audio to follow a link, then, resume the audio when you are ready)

America Under Siege

Methodologies, strategies and tactics employed effectively in political and social conflicts.

Military Maneuvers of War

Penetration of the center, envelopment of a single flank, envelopment of both flanks, attack in oblique order, feigned retreat, attack from a defensive position and the indirect approach.

A commander often must employ more than one maneuver to achieve victory; he may try to penetrate the center but fail, feign a retreat and then envelop a single flank. Each has advantages and disadvantages, while may be more effective in some situations and less in others.

​     There is also One Modern Maneuver of War: offensive revolutionary guerrilla warfare. This maneuver has actually been around for a while, but is only now becoming a legitimate, effective means of victory.   The strategy is to create diversions to distract and confuse your adversary, and while he is distracted, attack him at his core.

​     This military tactic is also effective in political, religious and social conflict.  The dominant philosophy driving this strategy comes from a tactic known as the Hegelian Dialectic, developed by George Wilhelm Hegel, an influential German philosopher in the 18th and 19th century.

What about Hegel?

​”…the State ‘has the supreme right against the individual, whose supreme duty is to be a member of the State… for the right of the world spirit is above all special privileges.'” Author/historian William Shirer, quoting George Hegel in his The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (1959, page 144)

In 1847 the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel’s theory of the dialectic to back up their economic theory of communism. Now, in the 21st century, Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution.

If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement their vision. When we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see out of the box.

Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology, we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat.

​     The synthetic Hegelian solution to all these conflicts can’t be introduced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda. For example, a person can draw you into a conflict and convince you to take a side by feigning a desire to understand your point of view in search of common ground for cooperation or compromise.

It goes something like this:  We don’t agree on a religious view. Your opponent states their case and asks that you help them understand your views.  You have now been drawn into the ‘dialectic’.  They will always respond with a counterpoint, criticism and ridicule.  If you do not concede to a compromise, they will inevitably resort to condescension and threats. Your opponent will be tireless and relentless in perpetuating the conflict until they gain a compromise from you.

​     The Marxist-Socialist’s main goal is Global domination. (Marxists truly believe the world will eliminate wars, hunger, poverty and will experience global prosperity if they achieve their aims.) A primary tactic is diversion (false flags) through this dialectic process, they have been successful at distracting their adversaries while advancing their causes, unimpeded.

​     For example, certain branches of the central Socialist organization may create simultaneous debates on a myriad of important social, economic, political and religious issues.  I will use the issue of abortion for an example. Having carefully orchestrated a national debate which occupies the nation’s attention, and the adversary is sufficiently distracted, the Marxist-Socialist machine goes about their business of building their Global Marxist apparatus.

​     Here is one small example:  #1.  THESIS:  A Democrat (i.e., socialist) says to a Republican (i.e., conservative), It is a woman’s right to abortion. The two sides argue and debate the point.

#2.  ANTITHESIS: The unborn have rights and abortion is murder.

#3.  SYNTHESIS:  (Compromise) Abortion should be allowed in the case of incest, rape or to save the mother’s life.  The conservative agrees to the compromise.

The results?  The Conservative has ceded 25% of the high ground on abortion.  The new reality is that the conservative’s position is now 75% of what it had been, and the Socialist’s position has grown 100%.

This process repeats, and the conservative falls into the trap again, losing 25% again and the Socialist gains 50%.  Repeated long enough, the conservative is in disarray, having lost the argument and the superior position, all abortion is legal including infanticide, but the conflict escalates and continues.

These skirmishes are numerous and growing.  Gun rights, civil liberties, homosexual rights, transgenderism, global warming, onerous taxation, socialized medicine, social security, etc.

All the while, the Marxist-Socialist have gained political and social advantage worldwide, unnoticed and unimpeded.

When we understand what motivated Hegel, we can see his influence on all of our destinies. Hegelian conflicts steer every political arena on the planet, from the United Nations to the major American political parties, all the way down to local school boards and community councils.

​     Dialogues and consensus-building are primary tools of the dialectic, and terror and intimidation are also acceptable formats for obtaining the goal. The ultimate Third Way agenda is world government. Once we get what’s really going on, we can cut the strings and move our lives in original directions outside the confines of the dialectical madness. Focusing on Hegel’s and Engel’s ultimate agenda, and avoiding getting caught up in their impenetrable theories of social evolution, gives us the opportunity to think and act our way toward freedom, justice, and genuine liberty for all.

Today, the dialectic is active in every political issue that encourages taking sides. We can see it in

  1. Environmentalists instigating conflicts against private property owners, in
  2. Democrats against republicans, in
  3. greens against libertarians, in
  4. Communists against socialists, in
  5. Neocons against traditional conservatives, in
  6. Community activists against individuals, in
  7. Pro-choice versus pro-life

No matter what the issue, the invisible dialectic aims to control both the conflict and the resolution of differences, and leads everyone involved into a new cycle of conflicts.

The ‘Dialectic’ and the Marxist’s global agenda is moving along at breakneck speed. The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic. This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.

” It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”  

Galatians 5:1

WHAT IS TRUTH?

“If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”   John 8:32-33

Know Your Enemy

It is very important that you read these quotes by Karl Marx, known as the ‘Father of Communism’ and quotes by Vladimir Lenin, the man who developed a murderous variant of communist ideology known as Leninism.

In them, you will see and better understand the things you see happening in our world, today.  They are still the methods, strategies and techniques for establishing Marxism and a One World Government.  They have always been and still are the standard and goal of Marxism. You should know these things to know how the modern Globalist-Marxist thinks and what they are accomplishing:

Quotes by Karl Marx:

  • “Take away a nation’s heritage, and they are more easily persuaded. “
  • “Communism begins where atheism begins. “
  • “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions. “
  • “We have no compassion, and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror. “
  • “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism. “
  • “If you can cut the people off from their history, then they can be easily persuaded. “
  • “The democratic concept of man is false, because it is Christian. The democratic concept holds that each man is a sovereign being. This is the illusion, dream, and postulate of Christianity. “
  • There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience. “
  • “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property. “
  • “When the sufferers learn to think, then the thinkers will learn to suffer. “
  • “The Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. “
  • “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope. “
  • A heavy or progressive or graduated income tax is necessary for the proper development of Communism. “
  • “The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.
  • “The unity is brought about by force. “
  • “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. “
  • “There is no greater stupidity than for people to marry and so surrender themselves to the small miseries of domestic and private life. “
  • “Taxes are the source of life for the bureaucracy, the army and the court, in short, for the whole apparatus of the executive power. Strong government and heavy taxes are identical. “

​Quotes by Vladimir Lenin:

  • ​”Give me your four-year-olds, and in a generation I will build a socialist state. “
  • “We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us. “
  • “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. “
  • “The goal of socialism is communism. “
  • “Why should freedom of speech and freedom of press be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what it believes to be right allow itself to be criticized? It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government? “
  • “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. “
  • “People always have been, and they always will be, stupid victims of deceit and self-deception in politics. “
  • “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world. “
  • “One man with a gun can control 100 without one. “
  • “As an ultimate objective, “peace” simply means communist world control.”
  • “Atheism is a natural and inseparable part of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. “
  • “It is, of course, much easier to shout, abuse, and howl than to attempt to relate, to explain. “
  • “Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism. “
  • “One of the basic conditions for the victory of socialism is the arming of the workers Communist and the disarming of the bourgeoisie to the middle class.”
  • “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. “
  • “Give us the child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevik forever. “
  • “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel. “
  • “We are not shooting enough professors. “
  • “Germany will militarize herself out of existence, England will expand herself out of existence, and America will spend herself out of existence. “
  • “It is necessary – secretly and urgently, to prepare the terror. “
  • “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation. “
  • “We want to achieve a new and better order of society: in this new and better society there must be neither rich nor poor; all will have to work. Not a handful of rich people, but all the working people must enjoy the fruits of their common labor. Machines and other improvements must serve to ease the work of all, and not to enable a few to grow rich at the expense of millions and tens of millions of people. This  is the new and better society, and it is called a socialist society. “
  • “There can be nothing more abominable than religion.”

 OUR STRUGGLE

America Under Siege

(You can listen to this audio while you read along, then, you can stop the audio to follow a link, then, resume the audio when you are ready)

Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”  (Paraphrased from Ephesians 6:12)

​     This may be a strange concept or idea to some, but everything we consider as ‘real and tangible’, the things we can see, smell, taste and touch, have come from the ‘unseen world’.  One way of looking at this is to consider the ‘unseen world’ of atoms, electrons and protons, which creates all the ‘matter’, seen and unseen.  A second way of viewing it, is that those things which are ‘built, constructed or done’ by people, originated from the ‘unseen’ world of thoughts and ideas.

​     The things of this world are temporal.   Everything seen on this world is the final manifestation of form and matter, before it decays.   Matter decays.  People get old and die.  The eternal is in the ‘heavenly place’, the abode of God. The Book of Genesis gives us the best example of this idea, which says,  “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  All things, seen and unseen, begin with God, Who is unseen.

The Bible tells us that everything, seen and unseen, whether good or for evil, comes, first, from the unseen world ‘of the heavenly places’.   Effecting change in the temporal means, we must start where the matter begins:  in the eternal place, ‘the heavenly places’.

Ephesians 6:10-11, fittingly says,  “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Verse 12. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Verse 13.  “Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

​Verse 14.  “Stand therefore,

  • having fastened on the belt of truth, and,
  • having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and,
  • as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
  • In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and,
  • take the helmet of salvation, and,
  • the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
  • praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication

To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”

​     Please notice that each piece of the armor of God is not just clothing with some religious significance or decorative garb.  Each item represents an ACTION which must be taken.​

  • The belt of Truth:  You are bound to Live and speak the Truth.
  • The breastplate of righteousness:  You are to live justly, be innocent, stay in right relationship with God.
  • The shoes of peace:  Walk in peace with God and with man, whenever that is possible.
  • The Shield of Faith:  Take up your faith in God and act on that faith.
  • The Helmet of Salvation:  Have the mind which is also in Christ Jesus. Think like Him.
  • The Swords of the Spirit:  Read, speak and practice the Word of God.
  • Pray in the Spirit:  Pray and make supplication, at all times.

Do these things, and you will be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.

 GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE

America Under Siege

(You can listen to this audio while you read along, then, you can stop the audio to follow a link, then, resume the audio when you are ready)

This Spiritual war for the souls and lives of God’s creation has been raging since the Serpent (Satan) entered the garden of Eden and deceived Adam and Eve.

Now, we are called to join God as His disciple in these Last Days, and engage the enemy in this very real cosmic battle for our survival, for our household, for our loved ones and for the souls of God’s created children.  This is about getting ready, now, today, taking up the full armor of God and engaging the enemy.

Our first step to engaging in this Spiritual War, is to understand that there is a Universal Truth.  An Absolute Truth which cannot be compromised or synthesized to suit any individual’s personal beliefs that do not conform to God’s Word, nor, any agenda except God’s Agenda nor anyone’s fleshly opinion, lust or personal desires. The Truth is an anathema for its detractors.

The Truth is a Person

​     This Truth is found in a Person:  The Life and the Word of Jesus (the “Logos-Word” of God).  Jesus testified to this fact when He said, in John 14:6, “I am the Truth and the life”, and again, in John 18:37, He said, “I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth.”

You and I must, first, receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior and become a child of God.  John 1:12, tells us that, As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”

The Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our Testimony

Being a child of God is the only way knowing the Truth and is the only way to succeed in this war.  Revelation 12:10-12 says, Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.  And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.  For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that Satan has only a short time.”

Believe Him at His Word

You can choose to believe God, or not.  If you believe Him, you will find an abundant and fulfilling life with the ability to overcome in tribulation.  If you choose not to believe Him, you will find eternal darkness “where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth”.  In other words, you will perish in the eternal Lake of Fire. Those are the simple facts.

Psalm 34:15-19

“The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous
           And His ears are open to their cry.

        “The face of the LORD is against evildoers,
           To cut off the memory of them from the earth.

        “The righteous cry, and the LORD hears
           And delivers them out of all their troubles.

        “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
           And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

        “Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
           But the LORD delivers him out of them all.”

Secondly, we must stand on this Truth which is the beginning and the end of every argument.  It is our offense, and, it is our defense.

Stand Firm and Speak God’s Word

​     Third, we must stand firm and Speak The Truth, the ‘Rhema-Word of God.  Ephesians 6:14 instructs us to, Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH”.  We must never engage in debate or argument on any matter thrown at us by the enemy or by those who are deceived.”

2 Timothy 2:23-24, tells us,But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels.  The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged”.

We must live and speak the Truth in every circumstance and to every person, at all times.  We need not fear or worry.  Jesus tells us that, “When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” (Luke 12:11-12).

Speak and Act on God’s Word

Next, we must speak and act on God’s Word in all circumstances.  Do nothing by your own will.  Even Jesus said, in John 5:30I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

And again in, John 5:19, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.”

Speak by His prompting, act in His manner, and it will come to pass.  This is how we God has told us, “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth, and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;  So, will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”  (Isaiah 55:10-11)

Pulling Down Strongholds, Destroying arguments

“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

     “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.”

(2 Corinthians 10:4-6)

​     What you are reading on these pages, and in the Bible, regarding these matters, are not just concepts, ideas  or religious philosophies.  This is the Truth, which must be applied to be effective.  This is what you and I must be doing each and every day.

“Knowing the Truth and not applying it, renders it as idle information.”

Commissioned and Sent

Matthew 28:16-17, tells us, “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.  And when they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted.”  Did you get that?  “But, some doubted”, and Jesus sent them anyway.  They had been, taught, trained and now, they are sent.  This is our model, our calling and our commissioning, also.  If you are having any doubts, go, anyway!

In Matthew 28:18-20, “Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  This process of making and sending disciples has been repeated millions upon millions of times since Jesus gave this prophetic commandment, and this process reached you at some point.  You have been called and sent.  You and I cannot wait until we think we are ready.  Jesus says you are ready, so, now, “Go”.

I am closing this section with three finals ‘helps’ and a reminder from Joshua 1:9-15.

The first ‘help’ is a forty-seven-lesson booklet on how we are to proceed as Jesus disciples.  Complete one of these very short  lessons each day.  You will find instruction, encouragement and strength.

Just click on this image of the book to start.

​​

The second ‘help’ is to Memorize and Meditate on God’s Word.  Commit these verses to memory and meditate on them. You will need them.

​“No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.“Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

“Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.

“The Word of God shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”  (Joshua 1:5-9)

GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE – Part II

American Under Siege

(You can listen to this audio while you read along, then, you can stop the audio to follow a link, then, resume the audio when you are ready)

“I Have the Full Armor of God – Now What?” 

(Please note: There is no ‘shortcut’, no easy 1-2-3, to defeating our enemy. It takes discipline and training and preparation.  You need to read, study, pray and prepare.  And, you cannot get the complete detail or a complete understanding of the steps we can and must take, unless you read the related links on each of these pages)

A war to resist and overcome the evils enveloping America and the world can be fought in four basic ways:  (1). Conventional or guerilla warfare, using conventional weapons of war, economic weapons, psychological warfare, the weapons of the media; (2). Political weapons; (3). Changing and winning the hearts and minds of the people through Spiritual Warfare; (4). Pulling down strongholds, taking every thought captive, destroying arguments.

The first two methods have been in use since creation and have brought only temporary periods of peace or limited prosperity for the few.  But, the “unsaved” people among us who are share our Christian ideals, but have not received Christ as their Lord and Savior, are still our allies and co- conspirators, and they will continue to wage war against our enemy using traditional methods.  However, we have been fighting wars throughout our history, which have murdered billions of people and cause destruction at unimaginable costs in dollars and human suffering, so the first two methods have not brought any measure of lasting peace or prosperity, except to a few.

The last method mentioned, Spiritual Warfare, the spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the pulling down and destroying the strongholds of rulers, authorities,  cosmic powers, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places, is the only way to defeat and eradicate evil and usher in worldwide lasting peace and prosperity.

Spiritual Warfare and spreading the Gospel is the method, mission and ministry to which God has called us.  It is through Spiritual Warfare, that, in the end, God will judge the entire world, defeat the forces of evil in the bloodiest of all battles.  It is through this warfare that Satan and the Anti-Christ will be cast in the lake of fire for all eternity.)

If you cannot, or will not, believe that this is your mission and that He will  accomplish these things through you, then you are not yet His disciple.  And you cannot know how and are unable TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE THE EVIL ENVELOPING OUR NATION AND THE WORLD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

Engaging in the Spiritual War raging across America and the world, requires that you know Jesus as your Lord and knowing what He requires of His disciples (a.k.a., Christians).  It is the indwelling presence of God that enables you to understand what God is saying and to gain the wisdom and abilities to fight this war.

Our relationship with God requires more than just knowing about Him. We must know Him, believe Him and we must follow Him, which requires our FAITH in ACTION.

Pastor and author Henry Blackaby points out, in his study “The 7 Realities For Experiencing God”, what we should know about God’s ways, His plans and His purposes. It illustrates how we can follow Him. :

      1. God is always at work around you.
      2. God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal.
      3. God invites you to become involved with Him in His work.
      4. God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways.
      5. God’s invitation for you to work with Him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.
      6. You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what He is doing.
      7. You come to know God by experience as you obey Him, and He accomplishes His work through you.
  1. JESUS’ MINISTRY IS OUR MINISTRY

Our relationship with Jesus is more than ‘Just Knowing’; it requires Believing and Doing.   Jesus has

(a) The plan for us to follow,

(b) The purpose which becomes our purpose, and

(c) The ministry for us as His disciples.

For example, in Matthew 10:2, we are told that “Jesus sent these twelve out after (a) instructing them (b) He gave them authority

      • over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to
      • heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness
      • “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
      • “Heal the sick,
      • raise the dead,
      • cleanse the lepers,
      • cast out demons.
      • Freely you received, freely give.
      • “Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts, or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support.
      • “And whatever city or village you enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and stay at his house until you leave that city. “As you enter the house, give it your greeting. “If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace.
      • “Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet. “Truly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.

If you cannot, or will not, believe that this is your mission and that He will  accomplish these things through you, then you are not yet His disciple.  And if you are not His disciple, you cannot know how and are unable TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE THE EVIL ENVELOPING OUR NATION AND THE WORLD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

  1. JESUS’ MISSION IS OUR MISSION

After Jesus’ death and resurrection and just before His ascension, He said:

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

So, Jesus was sent by His Father and was on The Mission of His Father.  If you are a disciple of Jesus (His follower) this is your mission, and He will do this work through you.

If you cannot, or will not, believe that this is your mission and that He will  accomplish these things through you, then you are not yet His disciple.  And you cannot know how and are unable TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE THE EVIL ENVELOPING OUR NATION AND THE WORLD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

III. JESUS’ PURPOSE IS OUR PURPOSE

1 John 3:8 “The one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.”

These are the WORKS of the devil, the thief comes only to STEAL and KILL and DESTROY (John 10:10)

The devil is the accuser, a liar, a thief, a murderer, the author of disease, pain, despair, loss, lack, fear, hopelessness and the like.

  1. JESUS’ METHOD IS OUR METHOD

Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (the devil) because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word (logos) of their testimony (Maturia -> Martus), and they did not love their life even when faced with death.”

Here is how Jesus destroyed the works of the devil.  And, how He will continue to destroy the works of the devil, through His yielded and obedient disciple:

  • Condemns a Fig Tree Matthew 21:17-22
  • Feeds More than Four-Thousand People Matthew 15:32-39
  • Stills the Storm
  • The Catch of Fish
  • The Second Catch of Fish
  • The Temple Tax Money Obtained from a Fish’s Mouth
  • Walks Upon Lake Galilee
  • Water Converted Into Wine
  • Cleanses the Leper
  • Cures a Man With Dropsy
  • Cures the Woman With the Issue of Blood
  • Healing of the Immobile Man
  • Heals a Demoniac
  • Heals Peter’s Mother-In-Law
  • Heals the Daughter of the Non-Jewish, Syro-Phoenician Woman
  • Heals the Demoniac
  • Heals the Ear of Malchus
  • Heals the Epileptic Boy
  • Heals the Nobleman’s Son
  • Heals the Paralyzed Man
  • Heals the Woman With the Spirit of Infirmity
  • Opens the Eyes of a Man Born Blind
  • Restores a Blind Man
  • Restores Sight to Two Blind Men Near Jericho
  • Restores the Centurion’s Servant
  • Restores the Deaf-Mute Man
  • Restores Two Blind Men to Sight
  • Restoring the Withered Hand
  • Throws Demons out of Two Men of Gadara (Gerasa)
  • DEFEATED DEATH
  • Raises Lazarus from the Dead
  • Raises the Daughter of Jairus from the Dead
  • Raises the Widow’s Son to Life at the Village of Nain
  • “Miracles in the Name of Christ”

If you cannot, or will not, believe that this is your mission and that He will  accomplish these things through you, then you are not yet His disciple.  And you cannot know how and are unable TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE THE EVIL ENVELOPING OUR NATION AND THE WORLD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

  1. OUR THREE-FOLD RESPONSE & OUR MISSION
  2. Philippians 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves, which was also in Christ Jesus,
  3. John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.
  4. Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

When you ‘hear His Voice’, submit yourself to Him, obey and spring into action!

ON THE OFFENSIVE – Part III

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE

(Please note, links are used in place of footnotes for references and citations.  Please review each link in order to get the full teaching on these matters.  Also, you can pause the Audio podcast to follow a link and resume the audio when ready.)

“Fighting Back”

NOTE:  If you are a Conservative or a Christian in America, every issue that runs counter to your mores or is in conflict with our existing laws, traditional social norms, our Constitution and our Christian faith, including plain decency, can be attributed to the Democrat Party or any Leftists activist organization’s drive to divide our nation in order to complete their implementation of the One World Marxist Government.

When we try to extinguish each and every political, social or religious ‘brush fire issue’ ignited by the opposition, it only serves to distract us from fighting the Beast orchestrating this evil, and cutting off his head.

Please take a minute and go back a few years in time with me, before the COVID-19 pandemic. The Democrat party in America and many Republican co-conspirators, have been working for the past 75 years to complete and implement Socialist-Marxists ideologies and practices into the fabric of our nation at the federal, state and local governments levels though our legal systems, our primary, secondary and university level educational systems, the media, our health care systems, our religious institutions and more.

Then, in November 2019, a mysterious virus began infecting people in Wuhan, China.  Investigations and subsequent reports show this virus had most likely escaped from a virology research lab in the same city. Coincidental?  Most experts think not. China, the clear leader in promoting and implementing communism around the world, using any and all means necessary.

Furthermore, China has been uncooperative in revealing any information about this virus, how it escaped the lab, why they were doing such biological testing and has refused help in containing the virus. The COVID disease quickly spread around the globe.  One has to wonder if this was a planned event.

The Biden administration refuses to hold China accountable and, in fact, is working with China to find new alliances, potentially giving up strategic U.S. advantages.

Several high ranking Democrat members of Congress (Rahm Emanuel, former Obama advisor; Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer and House majority leader, Eric Cantor and sitting president Joe Biden), have brazenly used the pandemic as an opportunity to pass legislative spending bills and executive orders which are in clear violations of the constitution and existing laws.

Thus began, the politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic using questionable, if not illegal, methods unrelated to any emergency or crisis at hand.  Democrats in Congress are now regularly using crises or national emergencies to manipulate public opinion and as opportunity to foment unrest and violence to reach their globalist agenda.  They, like Rahm Emanuel, seem to be saying, “Never let a good crisis go to waste” when it comes to promoting Socialist-Marxism in America and around the world.

FIGHTING BACK

There are an increasing number of grassroots movements fighting back politically.  There are some state and local governments passing legislation to fight Agenda-21’s Marxist attack on our Nation and her sovereignty.  As good as this sounds, they are still just fighting “political brush fires”.

Our goal is to resist and counter-attack the Beast by joining God in Spiritual Warfare!

Satan, also known as the serpent, the devil and the dragon are one-and-the-same, and he is behind all the evil which has ever been on this earth.

The New Testament book of 1 John 4:3 tells us, “every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.”

If you don’t know by now, let me assure you that Marxism, in all its various forms, (Socialism, Leninism, Communism, etc.) is a manifestation of the works of the Beast.

Chapter 13 of the book of The Revelation, John introduces and describes in great detail two beasts: one beast coming up out of the sea and one beast coming up out of the earth.

Maybe you have asked, ‘what are the two beasts in Revelation chapter 13’.  The short answer is they represent the Antichrist and the False Prophet. These two, empowered by Satan, set out with a mission to deceive many during the Great Tribulation. Let’s consider the roles these two will play in End Times prophecy and our preparation and methods to fight back!

HOW TO GET READY

I have been studying eschatology and the End of Days in particular, for the last fourteen years. I have wondered if the conclusions I was making were Biblical and accurate. But the things I concluded and taught, are coming true before our eyes.  Today, some prominent and mainline preachers are revising their End of Days views and are coming to the same conclusions as I.

I have written extensively about “What it Means to Get Ready” and “How to Get Ready”, but to keep this brief, I am attaching a PowerPoint presentation with the Bible’s conclusions. Just click on the image to go to the presentation.  The last page of the presentation will summarize “what it means to be ready”.

Matthew 24:32 tells us,  For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to
give them their food at the proper time?”

Again, please pay particular attention to the last page of this PowerPoint presentation.  Much of what it proposes must be done and can be done through your local Church.  But, should the day come – and I believe it is close at hand – when the Church will be forced underground, we must still come together and accomplish His Work.

We have equal vested interest. We are the Body of Christ

  • Prepare the Storehouse for the Saints
  • Come Together in Community
  • Make Disciples
  • Find and connect with Christians
  • Plan and coordinate with families
  • Organize “readiness” training classes, and more…

HOW TO FIGHT BACK

First, we must know, that although we may be engaged in the battle, it is God Who does the fighting, giving us the victory, and it is He, Who decides the outcome.

We may be called to a variety of task, such as leading someone to Jesus, calling out and rebuking evil wherever it is found, giving sound Biblical counsel, laying healing hands on the sick and infirm, taking care of widows, orphans, the destitute or a myriad of other things God may put in our way.

Scriptures tell us that although God is protecting us and fighting for us, some of us will give our life in service to Him.  Revelation 12:11 tells us, And they overcame the devil because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.”

There are dozens and dozens of verses that give us assurances. Here are just three.

Deuteronomy 1:30 tells us, The LORD your God, Who goes before you, will Himself fight for you, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes.”

Psalm 20:6-8, says, “Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.”

Joshua 1:5-6, tells us, No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them.”

Again, for brevity, here is a sermon and message from Pastor Trent Casto of Covenant Naples Church, Naples, Florida, from the book of Deuteronomy on the subject of “THE PROBLEMS OR THE PROMISES?” Although this sermon is not about eschatology, it gives us the answer to HOW TO FIGHT BACK.

Jesus has told us what is coming.  And, in Matthew 24:9-13, He warns, “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.  At that time, many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.  Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

We will fight and overcome the enemy ‘because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of our testimony’.   You and I must prepare through study, diligence and steadfastness in prayer.

 THE OVERTHROW OF AMERICA BY SOCIAL MARXISM

“Here, kitty, kitty” – a Grassroots Response.

(Please note, links are used in place of footnotes for references and citations.  Please review each link in order to get the full teaching on these matters.  Also, you can pause the Audio podcast to follow a link and resume the audio when ready.)

I was watching a video of a fellow trying to lure a lion cub, abandoned by its mother, into a container, so he could perhaps adopt it.  This man would lay morsels of food leading to the cage. The hungry cub would eat one morsel after another, but upon reaching the door of the cage would turn and run away.

The man’s attempt to capture the cub, apparently, went on for several weeks, until finally the lion cub entered cage. The door was shut and thus began a process of ‘taming the cat’ so they could be friends.

The cub grew into an adolescent lion. But, his captor-foster parent, had plans to tame and transform this lion into a house pet so he could make certain the cat could be well cared for.  He had a plan.

Things were going according to plan. This young lion was never allowed out on his own and never allowed to go near the wild from which she came – lest she might remember and return to who and what she was.

She had been able to adapt to her captivity and to obey commands of her owner, until one day, while walking his “pet” on a leash, she suddenly turned on him, killing him, regaining her freedom.

Some animals, such as elephants and even some felines adapt to captivity.  They live in zoos or the property of a circus, but they never seem to show the same vitality and longevity as those in the wild.  They just grow old, lethargic and die.

This reminds me of America.  Our early history was of a vibrant people who were willing to take risks in order to find a life with liberty, in their pursuit of happiness.  They were taking full advantage of the pledge of our declaration of independence.  Many would endure hardships and trials, and, in many ways, they were wild and unrestrained – except by the choices they made. The result of this pioneer and free enterprise spirit, was that America grew to be the richest, kindest, most generous and most powerful nation the world had ever seen.

Then came the captors, dropping morsels of food and goodies, leading to the cage.

The year was around 1930.  The timing was perfect.  People were suffering at the height of the Great Depression.  A limited form of the Social Security program began as a measure to implement “social insurance” during the Great Depression of the 1930s, when poverty rates among senior citizens exceeded 50 percent.

The Social Security Act was enacted August 14, 1935. The Act was drafted during President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first term by the President’s Committee on Economic Security, under Frances Perkins, and passed by Congress as part of the New Deal. The Act was an attempt to limit what were seen as dangers in the modern American life, including old age, poverty, unemployment, and the burdens of widows and fatherless children. By signing this Act on August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt became the first president to advocate federal assistance for the elderly.

The Act provided benefits to retirees and the unemployed, and a lump-sum benefit at death. Payments to current retirees are financed by a payroll tax on current workers’ wages, half directly as a payroll tax and half paid by the employer (self-employed people are responsible for the entire payroll tax). The act also gave money to states to provide assistance to aged individuals (Title I), for unemployment insurance (Title III), Aid to Families with Dependent Children (Title IV), Maternal and Child Welfare (Title V), public health services (Title VI), and the blind (Title X).

Then, slowly but surely, the Beast grew and gained strength.

Then on August 10, 1939 the program broadened to include benefits for workers’ dependents and survivors.

January 31, 1940: Ida M. Fuller became the first person to receive a monthly benefit. Her first check was for $22.54, the inflation-adjusted equivalent of $420.15 today. Fuller lived to the age of 100.

October 1950: Congress authorized the first cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), an increase of 77 percent.

August 1, 1956: Social Security Act amended to provide benefits to disabled workers ages 50-64 and disabled adult children.

September 1960: President Eisenhower signed a law amending the disability rules to permit payment of benefits to disabled workers of any age and to their dependents.

June 30, 1961: All workers now allowed to take early retirement at age 62, albeit at a reduced Social Security benefit.

July 1975: First annual automatic COLA, an 8 percent increase, was paid. Before 1975, each COLA required authorization by Congress.

July 1980: Beneficiaries received the highest annual COLA increase ever — 14.3 percent. The inflation rate in 1980 was 12.5 percent.

April 20, 1983: Comprehensive changes to Social Security, based on recommendations of the National Commission on Social Security Reform (also known as the “Greenspan Commission”) were signed into law, making sweeping changes to shore up the program’s shaky financial footing. The changes included raising payroll taxes and raising Normal Retirement Age (NRA).

October 1, 1988: A nationwide toll-free number was implemented for people to contact the Social Security Administration (SSA).

May 17, 1994: The SSA official website was launched.

October 1, 1999: The annual mailings of Social Security Statements began. About 125 million statements, showing workers’ earnings and projected benefits, were sent to all workers ages 25 and older.

April 7, 2000: The Senior Citizens’ Freedom to Work Act of 2000 was signed into law, eliminating the Retirement Earnings Test (RET) for those beneficiaries at or above NRA. (The RET still applies to those beneficiaries below NRA.) The RET was an original feature of the Social Security Act.

February 12, 2008: Kathleen Casey-Kirschling, the first boomer to apply for Social Security retirement benefits, received her first monthly benefit payment.

May 1, 2012: The Social Security Statement became available online after most paper statements stopped being mailed out in 2011. Today, paper statements are mailed only to workers 60 and over who are not yet collecting benefits and who have not set up an online My Social Security account.

March 17, 2020: Social Security field offices shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most services continued to be offered online or by telephone, rather than in person.

April 22, 2020: The annual report from the Social Security trustees projected the combined trust funds would be exhausted in 2035, after which only just over three quarters of benefits could be paid.

September 17, 2021:  SOCIALISM, is hiding in the United States, in plain sight. Take a look at the U.S. Budget and where the money goes.

Today, sixty-nine percent of the U.S., budget goes to some form of Socialist program such as Medicare, Medicaid, social security and income security.  Let that sink in: 69 PERCENT of our budget – your money, confiscated through taxation.

Here’s where the fraud begins:  Like all things Socialist-Marxist-Communist, they are a fraud, a lie hiding behind false promises.

Social Security has a trust fund, and that trust fund is supposed to have $2.6 trillion in it, according to the Social Security trustees.

Social Security benefits are entirely self-financing.  They are paid for with payroll taxes collected from workers and their employers throughout their careers.  These taxes are placed in a trust fund dedicated to paying benefits owed to current and future beneficiaries. The democratic-controlled government has told us that even though Social Security began collecting less in taxes than it paid in benefits in 2010, the trust fund will continue to accrue interest and grow until 2025, and will have adequate resources to pay full benefits for the next 26 years.  (as reported by President Obama’s budget director, Jack Lew, in February 2011, in USA Today.)

The problem in 2021 is that our captors toppled the U.S. system of government “Of a people and by the people”, confiscated our wealth, perverted our system of justice and has polluted our sense of morality – and the Socialist-Marxist federal government fully emerged.

In the grandest of all acts of fraud, thievery and evil, the Marxists in our U.S. Congress ‘borrowed’ all of that trust fund money and spent it.  And the only way the trust fund can get some cash to pay Social Security benefits is if the federal government draws it from general revenues or borrows the money—which, of course, it can’t do because of the debt ceiling. The result being, we are completely and entirely dependent on the government to supply our needs – we are in the cage.

Another glaring example is Nancy Pelosi, a democratic leader of the House of Representatives, the speaker of the House, and a Socialist-Marxist democrat.  She has said, “the disparity in our country of income, where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier and some other people are falling out of the middle class when we want to bring many more people into the middle class. But that disparity is not just about wages alone. That disparity is about ownership and equity. It’s all about fairness in our country.”  (see the video here Pelosi on Capitalism, or see the transcript, here.)

The hypocrisy and the lies are hidden in the details, yet in plain sight:  Pelosi, Democratic party member makes an annual salary of around $223,500 as of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. It’s been around two years since she took on the role, and her bank balance has just been on the rise since then.  As of 2021, Nancy Pelosi’s net worth is estimated to be roughly $120 million.

The median household income in the US for the ‘average American” in 2019 was $68,703.   According to Pew Research, middle-class households are those with an annual income in 2018, ranged between $48,500 and $145,500.  In another research of 2019, the income range for a middle-class household of three was between $53,413 and $106,827.  And, Pelosi makes at least twice that amount off your back – the taxpayer.

The net worth of the American middle class is between $29,760 and $191,900.  Nancy Pelosi’s salary exceeds $223,000 and her net worth exceeds $120,000,000 – made off the backs of middle-class America!  Yet she has the temerity to denigrate Capitalism and the American Way and to say that the middle class is being treated unfairly.  She advocates Communist economics and policies, “each according to his need”, which throughout its history has always lead to poverty, lack, resentment and death!

So, where do we go from here?  Nowhere.  That’s where we are going, nowhere – unless “We the People”, act, now!

It is time to break out of our cages and to turn on our keepers!

The Communist manifesto claims that “Socialism is just a necessary step to Communism and then must be done away with”.   “Nowhere” is a place, it is a state of being and it is defined as Communist-Marxism.  It is the same ideology which murdered over two hundred fifty-nine millions (259,000,000) people worldwide since 1900.

Socialists and communists say Globalism is the key to worldwide prosperity. But the truth is that Globalists are Marxists and they know Global Marxism is the key to controlling people under the dictatorial rule of godless communism.

“The task before UNESCO,” said its first Director-General Julian Huxley in 1946, is “the emergence of a single world culture by transferring full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization.”

The “new world order” will be a socialist, authoritarian global government and court with “global rule of law” and a “one-world economy,” according to the Commission for Global Governance.  When implemented, the New World Order will bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood managed by a world-wide bureaucracy, under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals, and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, certified to support a belief system which contains ideas that are foreign to the American experience, and ignores other values and ideas that are precious to the American experience.

Both, our federal and state governments have been compromised.  As of this date, August 31, 2021, these Globalists, have been embedded in our government, in our legal system at every level, in our religious systems, in our churches, in our school, colleges and institutions of higher educationOver 528 American cities are members of “Local Governments for Sustainability”, which is the Agenda 21 program at the local level.  Also known as ICLEI”, an international Marxist and Socialist leaning sustainability organization, that helps to implement the Agenda 21 and Local Agenda 21 concepts across the world. The United States has nearly half of the ICLEI’s global membership of 1,200 cities promoting sustainable development at a local level. (Former presidents, Bill Clinton and George Bush, were responsible for promoting and implementing these Marxists programs in America.)

We have lost this war for the hearts, minds, souls and the sovereignty of the once great United States of America. The coup d’état is complete.  We, as a nation, have been swallowed by the Socialist Beast.  We are now a nation practicing Socialism and controlled by Socialist-Marxists.  But this is only the beginning.

The ultimate aim of this Global Marxist Movement can be found, amazingly, in documents that date back over 2,800 years – in the Bible.

Now, at the time of this writing, September 17, 2021. there is a convergence and concurrence of global events, as never been seen before, in alignment with Bible prophecy. ”The branch of the olive tree has become tender and is putting forth its leaves, so, you know that summer is near; so, too, when you see all these things, recognize that Jesus is near, right at the door!”

NEXTAGENDA 2030 – THE U.N. – GLOBAL MARXISM- THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S ASSAULT ON AMERICA

SO, WHAT’S WRONG WITH SOCIAL SECURITY AND SOCIALISM?

It is a method of despotic control. The Church – that is all Christians – is / are tasked with the responsibilities of caring for one another, the less capable, widows and orphans.  All this has taken over by a secular anti-Christian government because the Church – Christians – have failed to continue the works of Christ, Jesus.

A CORD THRICE BRAIDED

(Please note, links are used in place of footnotes for references and citations.  Please review each link in order to get the full teaching on these matters.  Also, you can pause the Audio podcast to follow a link and resume the audio when ready.)

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

There is a saying, a proverb, in the book of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, which goes like this:

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.

“Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?

“And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.”

TYRANNY, MARXISM, ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

 The ancient wisdom of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 is as true today as when it was written, and is becoming increasingly necessary if we are to resist the evil and darkness of Marxism spreading across the world, we must unite.

We have read the news stories, during the Obama administration, when factions of the FBI rounded up what they called “insurgency groups” or “white extremist groups”, arrested and charged them for sedition or as terrorist cells. These so-called ‘dangerous’ groups were usually men in their advanced years who, while drinking coffee at a local coffee shop, were overheard griping about government overreach and what they wish could be done about it. Obama’s ‘brown shirt Socialists’ were creating political a shock wave, creating fear and paranoia, silencing any dissent and free speech and sending a message to the masses:  “Comply with our agenda or pay the consequences”.

Then there was the ‘weaponizing of the IRS’ and of other government agencies to intimidate and deprive conservative and Christian groups and individuals of their rights. Again, a clear message that we, Socialists and Marxists (under the guise of the American Democrat Party), will not tolerate dissent.  (NOTE:  Coincidentally, the Biden Marxist-Democrat party’s  $3.5 trillion spending plan, contains a provision to spend $80 BILLION of your tax dollars to hire 87,000 new IRS agents to come after your money.)

How are they getting away with this blatantly un-American and illegal activity? They pick us off, one by one. We are not united, we are not organized, and our elected ‘conservative leadership’ is, by their actions, either ineffective, bumbling fools or are complicit with the Socialist-Marxist-Globalists.

WHAT ARE WE TO DO?

We thought the Tea Party movement which was formed 2008 was going to be our  ‘grassroots’ answer to the spreading virus of Socialism. The Tea Party began inside the Republican Party and, tragically, was quickly absorbed by Republican Machinery. Many of the Tea Party leaders became intoxicated with political aspirations and joined the duplicity of the Republican Party, becoming an ineffective, squabbling herd of wannabes.

A quick footnote to mention that Donald Trump was an effective leader, a conservative and a friend of Israel, of Christians and of all Conservatives. Both political parties and the corrupt FBI turned on him with vicious lies, attacks on his personal businesses and family with outrageous and illegal political deceit.  The welfare of America was jeopardized by the corruption which emerged in our legal and political systems, all designed to destroy Donald Trump and his presidency.

This has a chilling effect for anyone who might consider a run for president as a conservative, unless he or she is a Marxist collaborator, the likes of George Bush, Mitt Romney or John McCain.

IS ANYONE OUT THERE?

There are scores of political action groups you can join. But they are being largely ineffective. Their plan is to win at the ballot box, but we have seen that process thoroughly compromised and corrupted in the last presidential election – and no one was charged with a crime. So, why bother with PACs?

You can find “Patriot Groups” and “Conservative Militia Groups”, but from what I can tell, they are mostly just bluster.

There are many conservative broadcasters using non-traditional means (internet, podcasts, etc.) to get their message out and to influence, but it is mostly just talk.

ONE LAST NOTE

There was one recent event when hundreds of thousands of Conservatives and American Patriots ‘stormed the halls of congress’. The problem was that the LEFT knew it was about to happen and left the gates open, then co-opted a peaceful demonstration, calling it “a sad and tragic time in our democracy”. They had seeded the demonstration with Democrat-Marxist infiltrators who caused troubles, casting a bad light on an otherwise good intention. Still, a message was sent. A shot had been fired across the bow of the invading Marxist hoards who have illegally taken up residence in our nation’s highest offices. This demonstration seemed to get their attention and put them on notice as to what we could do, if Conservatives acted with a united and single purpose.

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.

Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?

And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.”

Now is the time to step forward and unite in action, as Conservatives. But there is no leadership. I recognize that I am a lone and unqualified voice, calling out in the wilderness, “Who will lead us?”  But, if we do not act quickly, decisively and will iron clad resolve, we are finished as a Constitutional Republic. In fact, it may already be too late.

Please help. Write a letter to your Congressional Representative and your State Representatives. Ask for help to defeat the LEFT with definitive action.

“Dear ___(Senator or Congressman or Congresswoman)_______,

I am writing you out of great concern for the future of our Nation. It seems to me that the Democrat party and their supporters are increasingly made up of people who endorse the agenda of Globalists, Marxists, Socialists and Communists, are dissolving our sovereignty, erasing our borders, violating and voiding our constitution, breaking our laws, raiding our treasury, promoting burdensome and onerous taxation and corrupting our society with debauchery and perversions which were unthinkable only a few decades ago. We are losing our freedoms and may have already lost our country and our way of life.

The political system and the ballot box, in our last national election, proved to be ineffective against the corruption, the tyranny and deceit of the LEFT.

We need strong, decisive leadership to fight back against this spreading virus of Marxism. We need men and women who, like our founders, are willing to say, “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” (From the Declaration of Independence – click the blue text)

I am confident that here are hundreds of millions of American who will act in concert with a call to action by Conservative Leadership in our cause to save America. I am one of those.

Respectfully,

(Your Name, address and State and District)

Next, please, pray for our Nation and your efforts.  Appeal to local Christian leaders, to local businessmen and businesswomen, and anyone else you think is willing to help lead this fight.

A COSMIC STORM IS COMING

(Please note, links are used in place of footnotes for references and citations.  Please review each link in order to get the full teaching on these matters.  Also, you can pause the Audio podcast to follow a link and resume the audio when ready.)

Be ready for what is at hand, because we are expected to endure to the end of our appointed time, then God will intervene and take us home.

Where Do We Go From Here?

I have admired and listened to Dr. David Jeremiah for 35 years.  Over the last 14 years, however, I have not agreed with his view of Bible eschatology.  I listened to a recent message by Dr. Jeremiah, on his website, title, “Where do we go from here?”  In that message he gave 3 points on HOW we are to respond to the troubles in these Last Days:

#1. Worship the Glorified Christ – the more you worship, the less you worry

#2. Embrace your Global Mission – We have a mission that is global.  Take the Gospel to the entire globe.

#3. Anticipate your glorious Hope – Never fear.  He is coming back to establish His eternal Kingdom.

(Oh.  And, yes.  #4. Buy his books.)

So, this is the answer of “Where we go from here”?

(1) We stare skyward, worship, embrace evangelism and anticipate Jesus’ return.  Let’s get honest, here.

(2) We sit in church. We do that pretty well.

(3) We worship.  We do that OK, probably once or twice a week for about 15 minutes each time.

(4)  We evangelize the world.  We are not doing too good at that one.  We actually ‘give, because we can’t or won’t GO’.  We tend to stay separate from the world and leave this one up to the ‘professionals’.

(5)  We are really good at anticipating Jesus’ return, because most Christians just ‘stare skyward’, but, honestly, we do very little more than that.

So, I guess what Dr. Jeremiah is saying is nothing new for the 20th and 21st centuries.  But he is not alone in this type of teaching and assessment.  (Could this may be reason the church and church attendance is in decline?)

I get the feeling that most ‘religious leaders’ are concerned, but really don’t know what to do beyond what they have listed (and, for certain, those are good things.

LET’S BE CLEAR:  Jesus has sent us on His Mission.  And, God has never, ever, been gentle to those who shirk or draw back from the Mission. Even Jesus says, “Why do you call me Lord, when you do not do the things I have told you?  I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work lawlessness.”

Somehow, most preachers think the ‘End Times’ (more correctly, Last Days), will NOT intensify until the Church is raptured off the earth.

BUT LET ME BE CLEAR – BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS ABUNDANTLY CLEAR –  there will be an intensifying BEFORE the “rapture”.  And, you must be ready or you will pay a high price.

(Please note:  The following Bible verses on this matter are in red text , and my commentaries are in parentheses and are color coded blue)

Matthew 24:4 says, “And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray.

(this includes misinformed pastors, preachers, bible teachers)

Verse 5.  “For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ, and they will lead many astray.

(1) this can be someone literally saying ‘I am the Christ’, (2) but, it is more likely it will be someone who considers themselves as an emissary of Christ – such as ‘ordained pastors’ – who speak for Christ, but are blindly following denominational doctrine which are incorrect; or, (3) as we are clearly seeing, now, in our day, it is ‘institutional deception’, where entire denominations fall away from the clear teachings of Jesus and lead millions astray.

Verse 6And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. Verse 7For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

There have been wars and rumors of wars, famines and earthquakes since recorded history.  So, concerning the ‘End Times’, which wars and rumors of wars, famines and earthquakes should we refer to?  These things must occur in conjunction with ALL THE SIGNS and WARNING from Jesus and the Bible.

And, don’t miss the little phrase, “but the end is not yet”, as verse eight will elaborate.

Verse 8All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.

The phrase “the beginning of birth pangs” is a statement made by Jesus in or around the year AD 30 and is a translation of the Greek archē ōdin (ἀρχή ὠδίν). The meaning of the phrase, translated in the KJV as “the beginning of sorrows” is a direct reference to preliminary birth pangs that ultimately lead to the full-scale contractions and travail, which leads to the actual birth.

Recognizing the Old Testament reference that Jesus was hearkening to is an essential, but often overlooked key to determining the timing of the prophecy. Jesus was pointing his disciples to two key passages from the prophet Isaiah.

The first passage is Isaiah 26, a portion of Scripture found in the middle of what is sometimes referred to as “Isaiah’s little apocalypse”. There, the Lord speaks through Isaiah, specifically contrasting the expectations of the Jewish people regarding deliverance, redemption and physical resurrection with the reality of the pain, suffering and travail that they had corporately experienced. In verses 16-18, the complaint of Israel is raised that despite having endured the great suffering of labor, the expected “birth” of deliverance, redemption and resurrection had not arrived (the preceding three paragraphs were taken from the “Daniel Training Network”.)

This makes clear that the Last Days and the opening of the tribulation Seals began in our around AD 30.  Other references which confirm this date are…

Hebrews 1:2,                          Hebrews 9:26,                        Acts 2:14-17,

2 Timothy 3:1,                        1 Peter 1:20,                            1 Peter 4:7,

2 Peter 3:3. 

…spoken by Jesus and the Apostles Paul, Peter and Timothy.

Verse 9. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.

This is so clear and in such plain language, I regret having to point it out:  “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death”.  So, “YOU  WILL BE DELIVERED UP TO TRIBULATION”.  How much more intense can this be, than being put to death for Jesus name’s sake? The tribulation, Seals 1 through 4 have been described as having started, by Jesus, Himself, in the year A.D. 30.

Verse 10. “And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another.”

First – This is the hallmark of the Great Apostasy, found in these verses and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. Furthermore, “And then” translates from the Greek word, “tote”, in this case means of the future, also in consecution, i.e., the act of following, or the condition of being in a series; that which is consecutive; succession; sequence.

Secondly – “fall away” is the Greek word ‘skandalizó’ and means to entrap, i.e., trip up (figuratively, stumble) or entice to sin, apostasy or displeasure.

This is further explained in the following verses and can also be found in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. For more detail see Has the Great Apostasy begun?”.

Verses 11-14.  And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Verses 11 through 14 give us a major time line identifier through a concurrence of events: (1) many false prophets will arise and lead many astray; (2) lawlessness will be increased; (3) the love of many will grow cold.

“The one who endures to the end”, must be kept in context of the surrounding verses.  So, the one who endures to the end of these events – Which Events? – The tribulation seals ONE through FIVE.

“And then the end will come”.  Once again, this is clear, plain, face-value language. After these first FIVE TRIBULATION SEALS, which began in or around AD 30, and have continued progressively to overlap and gain in intensity, THE END WILL COME.

Matthew 24:29, says, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light

Perhaps it would be a good idea to read this verse again. It begins with “IMMEDIATELY AFTER the tribulation of those days”.  This is rich with information.

 The tribulation of THOSE DAYS are the days from AD 30 through the current date; tribulation Seals ONE through FIVE.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days”, should explain itself.  But, just in case, let me say, “THOSE DAYS” refers to the days already discussed (tribulation Seals One through Five).  Now , Jesus is moving our attention to what follows the first 5 Seals of the tribulation:  THE SIXTH SEAL.)

“the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light” is also found in Revelation 6:12-16, and uses the exact language.  It is the SIXTH SEAL of the tribulation, which is yet a FUTURE EVENT.

NOTE:  ANYONE WHO SUGGESTS OR SAYS THESE VERSES ARE SIMPLY METAPHORICAL WILL NOT PLAY OUT AS DESCRIBED, ARE FALSE PROPHETS, FALSE TEACHERS AND ARE AIDING THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST. (Other places in Revelation, you will find metaphors, allegories, imagery and similes to describe what was indescribable, such as, “The Lamb of God” to describe Jesus, “The Dragon” to describe Satan, or “The Four Beasts” to describe Satan, Babylon and Lucifer. The reader must learn to distinguish the difference.)

Many protestant pastors, preachers and Bible teachers adhere firmly to the John Nelson Darby version of the pre-tribulation rapture. These people with good intentions and most are good men and women, yet, they are sorely misinformed; or, perhaps, some are lazy in their study of scriptures or they could be ignorant about what scriptures say and mean. None-the-less, they are guilty of false teaching and of teaching a false prophecy.

What I have described known as the Pre-Tribulation, Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church. Here is a link and several videos and teachings explaining the Pre-Tribulation Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church.

 Listen, friends. Things are getting worse, even as I write this, and, things are going to get a lot worse as the time of the Rapture (The 6th Tribulation Seal) draws near.  You and I need to prepare, both Spiritually and physically, for these difficult times.

I have presented the Spiritual side of the coming day of the Great Tribulation and of the coming day of God’s Wrath in this article.

 Please go to these links, New World Order, also,“Agenda-21, Cover of the U.N., One World Government, and find the physical and earthly manifestation of this cosmic battle and of the spirit of anti-Christ, which is already at work.

The Bible tells us to be ready, for we do not know the day nor the hour when the Lord will return, and if you did know, you would be on the alert, “and would not have allowed your house to be broken into. For the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.”

 In conclusion, let me ask you, if you knew a hurricane or a major destructive storm was coming, what would you do to get ready?  (Please answer this.  Make a short list using these lines).  I would:

  1.                                                               
  2.                                                               
  3.                                                               
  4.                                                               

A Major ‘Storm’ is Arriving as I write these words.  We must be ready!

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE READY

Although, the things I have listed below will not ‘save you’, they are some things we should consider doing while we expectantly await His Return to take us to our Eternal Home:

IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE:  Don’t be deceived.  There is only ONE Second Coming of Christ.  There will be only ONE Rapture.  There will be only ONE Armageddon.

Know your Bible.  Know the sequence.  Be Ready, found doing as He has said.  Endure to the end and be saved !!

The 2nd Advent of Christ (the second coming of Jesus) is one event which can be seen from TWO PERSPECTIVES:  One perspective as seen from the earth;  the other perspective, from John’s prophetic vision, is seen as it unfolds  – a Spiritual and Heavenly perspective!

Look at it this way:   When Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. it was a category 5 storm;  As Irma progressed up the peninsula of Florida, it became a category 4 storm;  then as it entered Alabama it became a category 3 storm;  and finally, as it entered Georgia, Irma became a tropical storm; and later as it entered Tennessee, it became a rain event.

To those in the various states which hurricane Irma entered, it would have appeared to them that Irma might have been 5 different storms, occurring consecutively; first a Category 5 storm, then, a Category 4 storm, then, a Category 3 hurricane, then, a Tropical storm, and, finally, a rain event.  But if viewed “From Above” it was ONE CONTINUOUS STORM, progressively unfolding to its conclusion.

SO IT IS WITH THE ‘LAST DAYS’ AND THE 2nd COMING OF JESUS as seen in the breaking of the ‘Seven Seals of the Book’ as recorded in Revelation chapters 5,6,7 and 8; although, the breaking of each Seal may seem like seven different events, if viewed “from above” it is ONE CONTINUOUS EVENT (eschatological STORM), progressively unfolding to its conclusion.

  • Breaking of the 6th Seal of the Tribulation,
  • The beginning of the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord,
  • The beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week also known as the final 7 years of the Great Tribulation,
  • Jesus’ SECOND ADVENT,
  • The Rapture of the Church,
  • The heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True,
  • From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and
  • He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty

Why does it matter?

  • Jesus tells us that it matters because we must ‘endure to the end’ and knowing the sequence of events will help us to ‘not lose heart and faint’.
  • The apostle Paul tells us that it matters, because “God takes no pleasure in the one who shrinks back”, and knowing that our ‘salvation draw near’ will help us endure to the end.
  • Jesus tells us it matters and that we must stay alert and be found doing what He has commanded when He returns, or we may be “assigned a place with the hypocrites”. Knowing the day is near will help us stay focused and ready for His return.

AGENDA 2030, THE U.N., GLOBAL MARXISM

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links in lieu of footnotes and references.)

Globalist-Marxists are known to be the driving force and top echelon of the United Nations as well as controlling the Democrat Party in America. They and their various adherents and factions around the world say that humankind is responsible for destroying the earth by depleting our natural resources and by polluting the land, the seas, lakes and streams and the air. There is no truth to these claims. It is a political ploy, a lie. Yet the Globalist cabal say it is factual and that they have the solution. It is seductively named “The Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

It began under the name of “Agenda 21”. The Twenty-one is a designation for ‘the 21st century”. Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five-year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session.

The Newest name for this United Nations organization is ‘Agenda 2030’. ‘Twenty-thirty’ designates the year their goals of Global domination will be completed.

The Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030’.

 

The Preamble of the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” (Agenda 2030) says, in part:

“This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.

The Goals and targets will stimulate action over the next fifteen years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet:”

We are determined to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.”

 Who would not want to achieve these goals and live in such a Utopian world? Beware. The goals are lofty, but, the methodologies, the implementation and the governing of the world they describe can be likened to the gulags of Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, the reign of terror imposed on China by the notorious Mao Zedong or the racist Hegelian, Karl Marx’s nefarious social construct of Marxism which is responsible for the deaths of upward of 200,000,000 people. They, all, used the same Siren’s song the United Nations is using now, to lure hundreds of millions into the webs of Agenda 2030.

On the subject of ‘climate change’, a simple line of reasoning will help you undo that lie of the Left. Ask yourself, “Do we have air pollution because of industry and technologies?” The answer is, ‘yes’. But the earth has created far more air pollution on its own from volcanic activity, release of CH4 by paddy fields and cattle, release of CO by plants and animals, emission of natural gas, O3, nitrogen oxides, cosmic rays, UV-rays etc.

So, why the global outcry about ‘climate change’. It has been found to be an effective  narrative for the political goals of the Global-Marxist movement. No one can deny our climate is changing. The climate has been changing for millennia. It has never been stable.

But the Globalist-Marxist have convinced enough of the naive among the earth’s population to believe that suddenly, our fluctuating climate, is our doom. It is all a grand scheme of deception. Behind the cloak and grandeur of lies of Marxism.

About one-half of the world’s population has fallen for this lie. The poor of the world would see the opportunity to take from other countries what their failed systems and corrupted leadership has withheld from them while living lavish lifestyles.

The educated wealthy, the powerful and elitist of the Left are being motivated to ‘join the Globalist’s cause’ through promises of being further empowered and enriched. They will sit atop a One World Government with control over global finances, natural resources, food production, industry, technology, job creation, social constructs and anything that concerns the earth’s population.

I will endeavor to take one item at a time from the Agenda 2030 , in the weeks to come, and expose the lies.

(A note to America: The Globalist in your country, at the highest levels of your government,  are presently destroying your families structures, perverting your sense of morality, dismantling your legal systems, draining your treasury, corrupting your Constitution while staging the greatest coup d’etat that the world has ever seen. If you don’t rise up, quickly and forcefully, you will perish as a sovereign nation. In fact, it may already be too late.)

In the following episodes, you will see how the United States quietly partnered with and is complicit in the implementation of the United Nation’s Marxist-Globalist Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 plans. I am now presenting previously undisclosed documents showing the depth and breadth of the spread of this Agenda within the United States government and social structures.

      • Please pay particular attention to the Titles and subtitles, as they mirror the objectives outlined in the U.N. Marxist Agenda 2030.
      • Also pay attention to the ‘coincidental completion dates’ as they mirror the Agenda 2030 dates, as well.
  • Secondly, please review the Washington Standard publication from February 18, 2022, titled, “ALERT: 2030 Psychological Agenda – Obedience Training for Pre-K through Adults.
  • An article written by Shari Dovale, “ARP – The Path to Socialism” specifically referring to the ‘American Rescue Plan’,

As troubling as this seems, it has already been foretold. The Bible has warned  this was coming. Inform yourself. “THE JOURNEY TOWARD PERFECTION.

AGENDA 2030 – THE U.N. – GLOBAL MARXISM – Part 2

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links in lieu of footnotes and references.)

My previous article explained how the Globalist-Marxist United Nations endeavors to use terms, phrases and a style of language acceptable to everyone and offensive to no one in order to hide their true agenda and the nefarious methods to be employed.

Here is another example from an excerpt from U.S. Aid.Gov: “The Biden-Harris Administration’s Request is a reflection of the critical importance of development and humanitarian assistance in advancing US interests around the world. This Budget will advance USAID efforts to: Combat Climate Change, Advance Democratic Values, Address the Root Causes of Irregular Migration, Strengthen Global Health Leadership, Bolster Humanitarian Assistance, Expand Inclusive Economic Growth, Improve Resilience and Security, Invest in Our People, and Restore Support for Key National Security Partners and Advance Peace in accordance with the Interim National Security Strategy Guidance.”

“KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S DISCRETIONARY FUNDING REQUEST”

Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 President’s Budget Request For The United States Agency For International Development (USAID).

“COMBATS CLIMATE CHANGE”

  • Increases USAID Bilateral Climate Change Programming to more than $600 million, to dramatically expand the scale and geographic reach of USAID’s programs to combat climate change, including through investments in adaptation and resilience, renewable energy, and sustainable landscapes.
  • Builds on USAID’s comparative advantage when implementing climate change programming by leveraging relationships at the local level and supporting partner countries’ ability to achieve their Nationally Determined Contributions and implement National Adaptation Plans and priorities.
  • Generates creative solutions to encourage policy innovation and strengthen partner country capacity to accelerate breakthroughs in technologies and practices that promote climate resilience, carbon capture and storage, advanced energy systems, and maximize resource efficiency.
  • Expands climate change adaptation programming and policy leadership for USAID globally, including access to weather and climate information, science and analysis for improved decision-making.”

On the surface, what could possibly be wrong with the Biden-Harris Administration’s Request to tax the average American family for U.S. Aid to be spent abroad?

FIRST, The President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Budget Request for the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is $58.5 billion. That is FIFTY-EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS of your tax money spent overseas on Marxists planned, directed and initiated goals. Goals that are designed to complete, establish and entrench a One World Governing Body which will absorb the sovereignty of the United States of America.

SECONDLY – If you doubt that the U.S. Government, our government, has jumped on board with the One World Marxist Government push, just compare the United Nations pictorial of Agenda 2030 and the U.S. pictorial of the same (I have hyper-linked the images to the websites):

United States Sustainable Development Goals:

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

The foregoing are the goals of the Globalist-Marxists, which will give them complete authority over everything that affects and concerns you, from cradle to grave.

THIRDLY – Please note, from the image below here, the Biden administration 2022 U.S. budget proposals which total Six Trillion dollars. This, of course, is a back-breaker for the U.S. Citizen who works for and earns a living. YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS IN TAX INCREASES. But, the long-term goal of budgets like this is to collapse the U.S. economy and bankrupt the Treasury, which will create the crisis needed to weaken the U.S. sufficiently in order to move her into a One World Confederation.

It takes a patient and careful reading of the budgetary goals to realize that each department and has been equipped and directed to re-educate, retrain and indoctrinate our children in the ways of Marxist thought and doctrines, (Critical Race Theory, Socialist economic theory, Marxist ideologies, etc.), through the U.S. Department of Education and our citizenry through social engineering and social programs.

Biden Whitehouse 2022 Budget.

THIRDLY – If you are doubting these assertions and claims, then please read these page links and the associated documents, taken directly from United Nations websites and U.S. Government sites:

Agenda-21, cover for the United Nation’s One World Government

Globalism and the Tower of Babel

FINALLY – There is a lot to be read about the World Economic Forum, (WEC), a United Nations Strategic Partner organization in implementing the Agenda 2030. I will reveal more about this sinister alliance and their Global goals and methods in my next edition.

MORE:  Here is a link to a website, “The Wine Press” which has gone into some greater detail. It is interesting and informative. It also features a short video from the World Economic Forum (part of the Agenda 2030 family of Marxists) you should glimpse.

THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT EMERGES – 2022

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links for important details in lieu of footnotes and references.)

The goal of this article is that the reader, and particularly the American reader, will get the point that the United Nations Marxist Agenda 2030 has been embedded in, and is operational in most every nation in the world; and thanks to Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, the I.C.L.E.I., formerly known as the ‘International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, has operations embedded in over 250 known American cities and local and state governments, including the U.S. Federal Government, promoting the Marxist  agenda, goals and initiatives of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030.

Many of the goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030, being promoted through the World Economic Forum, are good-sounding and seemingly well-intentioned. The problem is deception. They are masking their ideology, their methodology and their end-game intentions which are purely Communist-Marxist.

I trust and hope you can grasp the magnitude of what has happened over the last 76 years in America and around the world: This may be the establishment of the long anticipated and prophesied One World Government. (also see GotQuestions.org and The End Time Prophecy Report)

 Hydra of Lerna

HYDRA was a mythical gigantic, nine-headed water-serpent in Greek and Roman mythology which haunted the swamps of Lerna. Heracles was sent to destroy her as one of his twelve labors, but for each of her heads that he decapitated, two more sprang forth. Its lair was the lake of Lerna was reputed to be an entrance to the Underworld, The Hydra had many parallels in ancient Near Eastern religions.

So, it is with the United Nations organization and all the affiliated entities which makes for a stranger-than-truth parallel to the mythological Hydra.

I would be remiss if I did not also mention the odd similarity between the United Nations structure and its perverse nature when contrasted to a Bible verse from 1 Corinthians 12:12, ”For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.”  Recognizing that the United Nations is employing Socialist-Marxist tactics, methodologies and ideologies which advocates for the eradication of Christianity or a transformation into a godless atheism that worships the state.

Karl Marx, for example, stated that “Christianity preaches cowardice, self-contempt, abasement, submission, humility. The social principles of Christianity are hypocritical”, and that “Communism begins precisely where atheism begins”.

Communist-Marxist atheism embodies the spirit of Antichrist which is a counterfeit and antithesis of Christianity. Communism and Marxism cannot coexist with Christianity.

It is the same with the:

  1. The American Democrat Party.
  2. Saul Alinsky and his book, ‘Rules for Radicals’.
  3. Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”.
  4. U.S. Sustainable Development Goals.
  5. The Communist Constitution and Program 2015 and .
  6. The United Nations Agenda 2030 .
  7. The World Economic Forum.

All these are programs and organizations have been developed using methods from Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and were created with the same ideologies of Communism and its variants, such as Socialism, Marxism, Leninism, and Globalism, all organized under or through the United Nations.

Another way of viewing this is that the American democrat party has the same objectives, the same ideologies and uses the same methods as the Rules for Radicals. Likewise, Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals has the same objectives, the same ideologies and uses the same methods as Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”. And so is goes for the U.S. Sustainable Goals, the Communist Constitution and Program 2015, the United Nations Agenda 2030 and the World Economic Forum. They all have the same objectives, the same ideologies and employ the same methods. It is a perversion of the Bible verse, “For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though they are many, are one body.”  A better description is “it is one body with many tentacles”!

                                 

         

IDENTICAL in their plans, programs and purposes, these entities are working in concert, professing and practicing Socialist-Marxist Utopian goals. They are simply agents for the Globalist Marxist Agenda and a means to restrict your personal freedoms, and to gain absolute control over international financial systems, educational systems, health care, food production and environmental controls.

Here are some detailed examples of several of these entities’ objectives, ideologies and methods:

Example #1:  The methods used by radical Leftists as taught in Saul Alinsky’s book, are demonstrably and ostensibly used by the American Democrat Party, by Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”, within the U.S. Sustainable Development Goals, within the Communist Constitution and Program 2015, by the United Nations Agenda 2030 and by the World Economic Forum.

Here is a list of the ’12 Rules for Radicals’ from Alinsky’s book:

Rule #1.  “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

Rule #2.  “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

Rule #3.  “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

Rule #4.  “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

Rule #5.  “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Rule #6.  “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

Rule #7.  “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
Rule #8.  “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

Rule #9.  “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

Rule #10.  “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign. If you push a negative hard enough, it will
push through and become a positive.

Rule #11.  “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

  1. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

Example #2:  The United Nations Agenda 2030 Sustainable Goals (see chart link) has the same principals and goals as The American Democrat Party, as Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”, as the U.S. Sustainable Development Goals, as the Communist Constitution and Program 2015, and the World Economic Forum and uses the methods of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’,

 from the United Nations web site UNESCO:

Example #3:  The list of The World Economic Forum’s objectives, principals and goals are the same as the

  1. American Democrat Party,
  2. Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”,

3, The U.S. Sustainable Development Goals,

  1. The Communist Constitution and Program 2015,
  2. The United Nations Agenda 2030, and
  3. They all use the same methods espoused by Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’:

The objectives, principals and goals of The World Economic Forum are:

  1. Biodiversity.
  2. Climate Change.
  3. COVID-19.
  4. Economic Progress.
  5. Future of Food.
  6. Future of the Environment.
  7. Gender Inequality.
  8. Global Governance.
  9. Governance for Sustainability.
  10. Humanitarian Action.
  11. Restoring ocean life.
  12. Risk and Resilience.

But it must be noted that these ‘noble sounding objectives’ will come at the loss of many personal freedoms and individual liberties, according the World Economic Forum’s own statements. Additionally, ‘The Commission on Global Governance’ boldly states, “This agenda will be foreign to and ignores ideas precious to the American experience”.

Example #4 :  The list and graphics for the “U.S. National Statistics for the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals” (graphics below), demonstrates and expounds the same principals and goals as The American Democrat Party, and as Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”, the Communist Constitution and Program 2015, The United Nations Agenda 2030 and the World Economic Forum and uses the methods of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’,

Title I – committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry  
Title II – Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions  
Title III – Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs  
Title IV – Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
Title V – Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship  
Title VI – Committee on Environment and Public Works  
Title VII – Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation  
Title VIII – Committee on Veterans’ Affairs  
Title IX – Committee on Finance  
Title X – Committee on Foreign Relations  
Title XI – Committee on Indian Affairs     

The inescapable conclusion for anyone who will take the time to see the truth and read the facts: Marxism through the Democrat Party and the United Nations has seized the United States Government from within!

 A quote from The Communist Party USA Program Documents: “The great wealth of the U.S. will for the first time be used to benefit all people.”

The first Director-General of the U.N., Julian Huxley, in 1946, said, “The task before the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is “the emergence of a single world cultureby transferring full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization. This new world order will be a socialist, authoritarian global government and court with global rule of law and a one-world economy”, according to the Commission for Global Governance.

The Obama Administration, (2009 – 2017), provided a living example of leftist globalists in action. Bankrolled by billionaire George Soros, and using the radical social-manipulation “rules” of Obama’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, the Left exploits groups like Black Lives Matter as “agents of change” to help usher in their new world order. They funded and directed radical groups to sow chaos and division by politicizing leftist targets such as police by labeling them as “racist. The black community is in a grave situation and they are being exploited and manipulated by the liberal left,” said African-American Vanderbilt University law professor Carol Swain. In the same way, UN globalists manipulate the Palestinians. They play the “racism” card to incite chaos, division and attacks against Israeli police and soldiers—just like in Ferguson, Missouri. Their strategy: foment societal disruption so as to undermine democratic foundations — then step in and take over. The Globalist agenda also includes the establishment of a one-world religion which means the political globalists have a religious arm. The UN is riddled with New Agers, occultists and others who consider freedom of religion hostile to New Age global harmony.” (taken from The Jerusalem Post)

I trust and hope that you, the reader, and particularly the American reader, have gotten the point that the United Nations Marxist Agenda 2030 is embedded in and is operational in most every nation in the world, and thanks to The United Nation’s Global Marxist movement. The same is true in America, thanks to Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, the I.C.L.E.I., formerly known as the ‘International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, which now has operations  embedded in over 250 American cities and in local and state governments, including our Federal Government through the Democrat party and several ‘turn coat’ Republicans who are promoting the goals and initiatives of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030 of Global Marxism.

The United Nations Agenda-21, (the name meaning their objectives were to be completed by the 21st Century), was changed to Agenda 2030, (meaning their main objectives will have been completed by the year 2030).

I also trust and hope you can grasp the magnitude of what has happened over the last 76 years and is now happening in America and around the world. This may be the establishment of the long anticipated and prophesied One World Government.

WHAT NOW?

There are two major obstacles the Globalists must still overcome which are the United States Government current system of government and the U.S. Constitution and Christianity.

Donald Trump may be the last very real political threat to the Globalist-Marxists and the Marxist-American-Democrat party, (et al), who are, as of this writing, attempting to silence and overwhelm his time and efforts by using various activities such as mounting numbers of frivolous but costly and time-consuming lawsuits, defamation, questionable-to-illegal search and seizure activities and other threats to his person.

It also appears that, as of the writing of this article, (April 15, 2022 and updated September 22, 2022), the United States has been sufficiently transformed into a Socialist system that the Globalist can turn their full attention to subversion of Christianity.

This leaves Christianity and the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the final major barrier between a free world and a godless Socialist-Marxist One World Government; and the Church has been under a relentless attack from within and from without for decades, and has either been replaced by institutions of religious humanism, (falsely using the name of the Christian Church), or is being transformed into a religious ecclesiastical hierarchy void of the Christian Gospel by forces inside the Church, at an alarming rate.

The Church in America and around the world is in a serious state of decay and apostasy. This, according to the Bible, is a sign of the 5th Tribulation Seal. The next great event to occur is the breaking of the 6th Tribulation Seal, the Rapture and tribulation such as the world has never seen, the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord.

A One World church is emerging that is antithetical to the God of Christians and Jews and to The Christ of the Bible. (See, The One World Church” and “The False Church Emerges”).

Someplace along the way, over the last two thousand years, it seems that many of the people calling themselves Christians, have come to assume that Jesus was either some kind of a ‘progressive left-wing ideologue’ or a pacifist and have modeled their lives as such. Let’s be crystal clear: Both assumptions are wrong. Dead wrong!

Unfortunately, much of the current day Church leadership in America has bought into the Leftist propaganda that the Church should stay out of politics. The problem with that assertion is two-fold:

#1. This has created confusion within the church regarding its mission and methods. The mission and methods of Jesus were never political but they were both clear and confrontational. Jesus said, “For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days!

 TO TESTIFY TO THE TRUTH

In John 18:37, Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days!

TO BRING A SWORD

In Matthew 10:34, Jesus said, Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Verse 35 For I came to TURN A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; Verse 36 and A PERSON’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days!

 TO FULFILL THE LAW

In Matthew 5:17 , Jesus said, “Do not presume that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill the Law and the Prophets.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days!

TO CALL SINNERS

Mark 2:17  says, “And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”  This, too, is our calling in these Last Days!

TO SAVE THE WORLD

In John 12:47 , Jesus says, “If anyone hears My teachings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.”   In a very real sense, This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days, by lifting the Name of Jesus, telling others and leading them to Him

TO CAST FIRE & BRING DIVISION UPON THE EARTH

In Luke 12:49 , Jesus says, “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! Verse 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! Verse 51 Do you think that I came to provide peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather to create division;” This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance in these Last Days!

 #2. The Church through the teachings of the Bible explains and defines politics. It is true that the Church should not become political nor should it let the contemporary politics influence or become the message of the Church. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, His life, His teachings, His work of salvation by His death and His resurrection are the core message of the Bible and the Church. But when the Gospel is correctly understood and the life and message of Jesus is correctly lived out with conviction, politics are defined within the framework of the Judeo-Christian ethos. (also see The American civil war is over Judeo-Christian values.)

 “WHAT HE REALLY MEANT?”

In John 14:12, Jesus says,Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I am going to the Father. Verse 13. And whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Verse 14. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”

I have heard so many preachers and bible teachers try to justify or explain away these Words of Jesus because they just cannot fathom the gentle and sweet ‘dashboard Jesus’ saying such things as we find in the verses cited.  These same confused preachers really get tied in a knot over John 14:12.  They will begin their commentary of teaching it with, “what this really means is…”.

Jesus said what He meant and meant exactly what He said.  We need to get over it and get on with it.

Jesus always, taught the Will of His Father, then, demonstrated what He taught. He expects us to do the same. Ephesians, chapter six, gives us a clear teaching and picture of the type of preparation and resolve we are to assume.

STAND FIRM:

Ephesians 6:10-17,Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

A FINAL WORD

 

There are three realities at play here. One is this natural world in which we live. The other reality is the ‘hidden world’ of ideas and thoughts which only come to light when acted upon. This second world is where the collision of the ‘hidden world’ and the ‘unseen world’ collide. The third is the ‘spiritual world’.

The “Unseen World’ is where everything, both seen and hidden, originate, but not like the imaginary world of ghosts or goblins.  This Spiritual world is called, in the Bible, by various names such as ‘The Kingdom of Heaven’ or ‘The Kingdom of God’. The Spiritual world is the real ‘unseen’ world of God.

So, when talking about and exploring past, current or developing events in our natural world, it is wise and prudent to remember that these things were spoken of and written about at length, centuries ago, in the Jewish Bible (also called the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh which is another term for what Christians call the Old Testament portion of the Bible.)

Understanding the past and the prophecies which have come to pass and are now appearing to us, will help you navigate the difficulties you are now facing, and even greater difficulties which are coming, and are in fact, now at hand.

Finally, ignoring these current realities, and coming events, are at your own peril.

But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore, you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.“ (Matthew 24:36-46).

Let’s boldly advance the message of the Gospel and speak the Truth in the face of the opposition! Resist the devil, and he will flee from you! Draw near to God and He will draw near to you!

THE RISE OF THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST – The response toward a compromised church

(This is a short panorama of the sudden rise of the Church of Jesus Christ, followed by the fall of the errant, compromised and false church and the rise of the Antichrist in these latter days.

Do not despair at what you are about to read. This is all part of God’s Glorious “Plan of Perfection”. We have an important part to play and we must fulfill our role. The End is nearer than you think. Rejoice!).

God’s plan is unfolding exactly as He purposed; from The Creation, through the Garden of Eden and the Fall of Man to the Great Flood, the Tower of Babel, the Exodus from Egypt, the possessing of The Promised Land, the Destruction of the First Temple and the Jewish Captivity in Babylon, the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus, the Destruction of the Second Temple, our steady march through time has been exactly as Bible prophecy has foretold.  We have entered an era leading to the destruction and, eventually, a rebirth of the heavens and the earth.

The Purpose of God’s Eternal Plan is “Perfection”.  He is maturing and perfecting His people into His image, ultimately to live in Perfect harmony with Him and with one another, in a New and Perfect heaven and earth.

“Because by a single offering He has made perfect for all time those who are being sanctified.” Hebrews 10:14

Each and every chapter, verse and word in the Bible, when viewed within this context of  God’s Eternal Plan of Perfection, begins to make perfect sense.

    THE JOURNEY TO PERFECTION – A Preview

The advent and rise of Christianity were sudden, dramatic and explosive despite being birthed in a crucible of severe, violent and bloody persecution. (Despite the risks, the early Church did not, shrink back to destruction, but followed Jesus in faith and practice for they had faith for the safekeeping of the soul. See Hebrews 10:39)

What was it about early Christianity that led so many to sacrifice everything, including their lives, in order to become a follower and a disciple of Jesus?

It was both a promise and a hope. A promise of forgiveness of one’s failed and sinful past. A hope of a future worth living, now, and an eternity with God in heaven. The promise and hope were played out in people’s lives through demonstrable love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, which is the fruit of the Holy Spirit of God within you. (The early Church knew this and practiced it; the postmodern church seems to have forgotten.)

The Christian community was becoming known for its generosity, its humility and its commitment to a quiet and humble lifestyle of faith. The Christian community selflessly cared for one another and for others, giving and expecting little in return. (This was the way of life for the early church; the postmodern church has forgotten and has become self-serving in many ways.)

The greatest criticism of Jesus and His Church, (the Christian Community), was who they ministered to and kept company with the sick and the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed and the outcast.  Jesus responded, saying “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.” (This was the model and the way of the early church; today, the practice of this teaching and example of Jesus is sporadic at best.)

Although the penalty for becoming a Christian in the early church was often a beating, stoning and death, the Church grew exponentially. The Church was a movement of God.

Then something tragic happened.

AD 313 The Church expanded into Rome, and it gained recognition. It grew in power and popularity. It obtained wealth, buildings, property and influence. It became an institution.

AD 380 The Church expanded into Europe. It was becoming a worldwide phenomenon. It grew in wealth, stature, power and influence. It had become a culture.

AD 1607 The Church reaches America.

AD 1681 The Church became corporate. It had become a business and incorporated. It became regulated by the government.

The Corporate Church grew. It needed money to support growth and expansion, which meant the Corporate Church needed more people.

AD 1777 The state of Virginia granted tax exemption to houses of worship.

AD 1894 The corporate church was granted tax exemptions by the Federal Government.

AD 1954 The Federal Government regulated what a church could and could not say in order to retain tax-exempt status.

The church continued to grow, and in order to attract more people the Corporate Church lowered its membership and doctrinal standards. More people became ‘members’ and gave more money to support more growth.

The Church corporation is complete with leaders, boards and membership and a business model.

Local churches compete against one another for members (customers). The church is selling itself in “three-line slogans”.

The Church members now have choices and have become religious consumers. Church people can shop around for the religious brand and standards that best suits them. (2 Timothy 3)

The Leadership (pastors and preachers) have become CEOs, disciples have become church leaders, growing their 501(c)(3) business models.

Record numbers of pastors quitting because of stress, burnout or are being fired by their congregations (some stats say 1500 – 1700 leave “the ministry” each month).

Church debt in America soars; church foreclosures soar.

AD 1968 The church ordains homosexuals as clergy.

AD 1972 The United church of Christ ordains homosexual clergy

AD 2010 The Lutheran church ordains homosexual clergy

AD 2012 The Presbyterian church ordains homosexual clergy

The Episcopal Church in the United States and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have also allowed ordination of openly gay and lesbian candidates for ministry for some years.

Internationally, churches that have ordained openly lesbian or gay clergy include the Church of Scotland, the Church of England, the Church in Wales, the Church of Sweden, the Church of Norway, the Church of Denmark, the Church of Iceland, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, the Evangelical Church in Germany, the Methodist Church in Britain, the Protestant Church in the Netherlands, the United Protestant Church in Belgium, the Swiss Reformed Church, the United Protestant Church of France, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Anglican Church in Canada, the Old Catholic Church, the Czechoslovak Hussite Church and the United Church of Christ in Japan.

AD 2020 The church is losing and has lost influence. The church in 2020 is losing members.

AD 2021 The church-at-large is teaching and living a different Gospel than that of the Apostles.

A new and revolutionary message known as the Gospel of Jesus Christ had been largely abandoned, and as Aristotle postulated, “nature (and the world) abhors a vacuum”.  This idiom is used to express the idea that empty or unfilled spaces are unnatural as they go against the laws of nature and physics and are soon filled. The same could be said to be true about human nature.

The teaching and practices of Jesus and the Bible were abandoned or replaced by self-serving methods of commerce, entertainment, comfort or exploitation people felt betrayed and they dropped out or rebelled. A void had been created.

Now, that void is being filled. Enter, Critical Race Theory. WOKE ideologies. The Emergent Church. Transgenderism. LGBQT ‘rights’. BLM. Gender Neutral ideologies. The ‘new Marxism’. Abortions-on-demand. Euthanasia of the elderly.

The popular cry from Christians in the postmodern 21st century is to “put prayer back in schools” or to “return to the Bible”.  But until we, Christians, forsake sin and return to the ways and attitudes of Jesus, no outward practice will bring us a saving relationship with God; we are saved only by God’s grace, through obedient faith in Jesus Christ.

THE AGE OF APOSTASY IS WELL UNDER WAY

Matthew 24:3, records, “And as Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 

Then, in Matthew 24:4, Jesus recounts to His disciples, the breaking of the first four Tribulation Seals which had begun in or around A.D. 30 and would continue to intensify and overlap with one another and the 5th tribulation seal, until the arrival of The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord (The 6th Tribulation Seal).

And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. Verse 5. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will mislead many people. Verse 6. And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. Verse 7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Verse 8. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pains.

It is urgent that “The Church”, that is the members of Christ’s Body, you and I, must turn away from the apostate church and surrender ourselves as bondservants of Jesus, in His service, as did the early Church. The time is short.

Jesus continues in Matthew 24: 9, describing a great persecution of the church, the great apostasy and the rise of false prophets and the spirit of antichrist. “Then they will hand you over to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. Verse 10. And at that time many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another. Verse 11. And many false prophets will rise up and mislead many people. Verse 12. And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will become cold”.

The point is that God will finish what He had started: The Perfecting of His Church, through purging, cleansing and purifying by way of the first half of the 7 yeare tribulation period (beginning with the breaking of the 6th Tribulation Seal.

Then comes judgment of all the earth, beginning with the 7th Trumpet Judgement. We need to be ready and understand what God is doing in these last days leading up to the breaking of the 6th Tribulation Seal and the rapture of the Church.

Read Daniel 12:5-12,“Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others were standing, one on this bank of the stream and the other on that bank of the stream.  And someone said to the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, “How long will it be until the end of these wonders?”  And I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time (12 months), times (12 months), and half a time, (six months, or a total of 42 months = 3.5 years; the first half the 7 year tribulation period); and as soon as they finish smashing the power of the holy people, all these events will be completed. But as for me, I heard but did not understand; so I said, “My lord, what will be the outcome of these events?”  And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words will be kept secret and sealed up until the end time. Many will be purged, cleansed, and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand. And from the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who is patient and attains to the 1,335 days! But as for you, go your way to the end; then you will rest and rise for  allotted portion at the end of the age.” These are of Daniel’s 70 Weeks.

NOTES:  For clarification, please first read Daniel 9:27, And he will confirm a covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come the one who makes desolate, until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, gushes forth on the one who makes desolate.”

The “seventy weeks” prophecy is one of the most significant and detailed Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. It is found in Daniel 9. The chapter begins with Daniel praying for Israel, acknowledging the nation’s sins against God and asking for God’s mercy. As Daniel prayed, the angel Gabriel appeared to him and gave him a vision of Israel’s future.

The Divisions of the 70 Weeks

In verse 24, Gabriel says, “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city.” Almost all commentators agree that the seventy “sevens” should be understood as seventy “weeks” of years, in other words, a period of 490 years. These verses provide a sort of “clock” that gives an idea of when the Messiah would come and some of the events that would accompany His appearance.

The prophecy goes on to divide the 490 years into three smaller units: one of 49 years, one of 434 years, and one 7 years. The final “week” of 7 years is further divided in half. Verse 25 says, “From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’” Seven “sevens” is 49 years, and sixty-two “sevens” is another 434 years:

49 years + 434 years = 483 years.

The Final Week of the 70 Weeks

Of the 70 “sevens,” 69 have been fulfilled in history. This leaves one more “seven” yet to be fulfilled. Most scholars believe that we are now living in a huge gap between the 69th week and the 70th week. The prophetic clock has been paused, as it were. The final “seven” of Daniel is what we usually call the tribulation period.

Daniel’s prophecy reveals some of the actions of the Antichrist, the “ruler who will come.” Verse 27 says, “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’” However, “in the middle of the ‘seven,’ . . . he will set up an abomination that causes desolation” in the temple. Jesus warned of this event in Matthew 24:15. After the Antichrist breaks the covenant with Israel, a time of “great tribulation” begins (Matthew 24:21, NKJV).

From this we can find the answer to the question in Daniel 12, “How long will it be until the end of these wonders?” In the middle of the ‘one week’ which is equal to 3.5 years, the wonders of purging, cleansing and refining of His Church is completed, the abmonination of desolation will take place, and the begins the second 3.5 years of the Tribulation period when God will pour out His Wrath, cast Satan, the Beast and those not found in the Lamb’s book of life, into the eternal lake of fire.

The breaking of the 6th Tribulation Seal will usher in the final 7 years of the Great Tribulation, also known as Daniel’s 70th Week. (See Matthew 24:21, “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will again.

And Matthew 24:29-31, tells us, But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET BLAST, and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

It will be at the end of the Age that Jesus will have defeated the the Antichrist and the beast and cast them into the eternal lake of fire. God, then will create a new heaven and a new earth.  The walls will be jasper; and the city will be pure gold, like clear glass. The foundation stones of the city wall will be decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation stone will be jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. And the twelve gates will be twelve pearls; each one of the gates will be a single pearl. And the street of the city will be pure gold, like transparent glass.

There will be no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city will have no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God will illuminate it, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed; and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Revelation 21:18-27).

Rather than pointing out the state of the church in this postmodern age, I am appealing to you to come out of the church lethargy that is so prevelant, and enter the ministry God has given you; discover and employ the Spiritual Gifts given you by the Holy Spirit.

Your Brother and Friend,

THE ‘LEFT’ IS DESTROYING AMERICA’S LEGACIES – IS CHRISTIANITY IN THE WAY?

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links for important details in lieu of footnotes and references.

There is an ongoing, aggressive and blatant movement creating a one world community. A slick and powerful, multifaceted global government propaganda cabal, is pushing A NEW GLOBAL SOCIALIST AGENDA ACROSS THE GLOBE.

The United Nations has been at work over the last seventy-five years, what was quietly and surreptitiously assembling a global organization and network with an agenda. It was named the Agenda 21, the twenty-one designating their goal to fully implement their global plans in the 21st century.

Produced by the United Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development, authored by Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party, the term Sustainable Development was first introduced to the world in the pages of a 1987 report (Our Common Future).

The term was first offered as official U.N. policy in 1992, in a document called UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21, issued at the U.N.’s Earth Summit, today referred to simply as Agenda 21.

The Program for Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Commitments to the Rio principles, were strongly reaffirmed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (W.S.S.D.) held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 August to 4 September 2002.  The actual and basic goals of the United Nation’s Agentda-21 and the W.S.S.D are hidden behind the stated goals of, which will be reaffirmed at a world summit in 2022, and Agenda 2030 was inaugurated, which set the date for the Globalist-Marxist Great Reset, and world domination. What began as Agenda-21 (the “21” represents the 21st century), has developed into what is now known as Agenda-2030, and has brazenly stated it will have accomplished all its Socialist utopian goals by the year 2030. It has and is achieving what the people could not have imagined possible just a few decades ago. (No, this is not science fiction.)

8 PREDICTIONS FOR THE WORLD IN 2030

The Capitalist, Published June 26, 2020 (Excerpt) “Quietly, while the coronavirus pandemic distracted the world, a group of liberal “key global governmental and business leaders” met in Switzerland and planned the next coup d’etat to take over the global economy. Many call it The Great Reset. It also means “dangerous times for those who support individual liberties and free markets.” The World Economic Forum held a summit ion 2021 to further their initiative. According to them, “The Great Reset is a commitment to jointly and urgently build the foundations of our economic and social system for a more fair, sustainable and resilient future. It requires a new social contract centered on human dignity, social justice and where societal progress does not fall behind economic development.” “What it is really accomplishing under the cover of the coronavirus pandemic is a renewed push for Socialism and climate change initiatives.”

The World Economic Forum and the United Nations signed a Strategic Partnership Framework, June 13, 2019, outlining areas of cooperation to deepen institutional engagement and jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The framework was drafted based on a mapping of existing collaboration between the two institutions and will enable a more strategic and coordinated approach towards delivering impact.
 
The UN-Forum Partnership was signed in a meeting held at United Nations headquarters between UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Economic Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.\
 

THE U.N. BACKED “GREAT RESET” TO USHER IN NEW WORLD ORDER THE NEW AMERICAN, The New American – Europe; UN-Backed “Great Reset” to Usher in New World Order, July 15, 2020, Alex Newman, (Excerpt) “Get ready for a lot less freedom and prosperity, and a lot more government — at least if the elites get their way.  After peddling coronavirus lockdowns that crushed the economy and funding riots that terrorized the public under the guise of fighting “systemic racism,” Deep State globalists are stepping in to offer their proposed “solution” to the crises they themselves unleashed: A “Great Reset” to transform the world and everything in it, supposedly for the benefit of the masses, but really for the benefit of the ruling classes.

“Top leaders of Big Business, Big Globalism, and Big Government worldwide — including royalty and mass-murdering communist tyrants — are jumping on the bandwagon. But even before the scheme is fully outlined and understood, resistance is growing quickly.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” added Schwab, calling for even “stronger and more effective” government.

“We must build entirely new foundations for our economic and social systems.” And there is no other choice but to submit, he and others declared.”

“In short, what remains of the tattered free-market system is set to be tossed out — along with the vibrant middle class it sustained. In its place will rise technocratic governance based on nebulous “social” and “environmental” goals set by the technocrats.”

INTRODUCING THE ‘GREAT RESET’

“For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.

At a virtual meeting earlier in June hosted by the World Economic Forum, some of the planet’s most powerful business leaders, government officials and activists announced a proposal to “reset” the global economy.

Instead of traditional capitalism, the high-profile group said the world should adopt more socialistic policies, such as wealth taxes, additional regulations and massive Green New Deal-like government programs. “Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on the World Economic Forum’s website.

“In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.“ Although many details about the Great Reset won’t be rolled out until the World Economic Forum meets in Davos in January 2021, the general principles of the plan are clear: The world needs massive new government programs and far-reaching policies comparable to those offered by American socialists such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in their Green New Deal plan. “Or, put another way, we need a form of socialism – a word the World Economic Forum has deliberately avoided using, all while calling for countless socialist and progressive plans.”

OK?  Now you have an idea of how the CoronaVirus pandemic was politicized and used by the Globalit’s agenda. You also know what the GREAT RESET is all about. Now let’s look at the ‘how and why’ the American media and our goverment is assisting this collaborative movement, merging the United States into a One World confederation of governance. Another example of how we and the media (and yes, even Fox News) are either misunderstanding why the LEFTIST are doing WHAT they are doing, the WAY they are doing it, or they are lying. Or perhaps they are deliberately misreporting the news in order to stir emotions to increase viewership for monetary reasons.

To Wit: “Smiley Martin, 27, was arrested by the Sacramento Police Department on Tuesday. His role in the deadly encounter remains unclear, yet his criminal history is in focus. He served only four years of a 10-year prison sentence, being released in February over objections from the local prosecutor. “The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office strongly opposed Smiley Martin’s release from the 10-year prison sentence in a letter last year, the Sacramento Bee reported, citing public record documents. “Inmate Martin’s criminal conduct is violent and lengthy,” wrote Deputy District Attorney Danielle Abildgaard in a two-page letter to the Board of Parole Hearings on April 29, 2021.

“In the correspondence, Abildgaard outlines Martin’s criminal history dating back to 2013, which include multiple robberies, firearms violations, and providing false information to police.”

FOX NEWS’ afternoon broadcast, “THE FIVE”, led by Greg Gutfield, discussed criminal Smiley Martin, emphasizing his early release from prison over the objections of DDA Danielle Abildgaard, who said if Smiley is released he will continue to commit crimes and would likely hurt someone. THE FIVE’s conversation focused around the poor judgment, liberal ideology and stupidity of the parole office for releasing him. The criticism of Leftist thought and behavior brought to mind the unspoken question, “Why do they do that” when the results are almost always dreadful or deadly? This seems to be conservative’s standard response to Leftist politics and ideologies: Complain and criticize. But they need to be asking, ‘why do they do what they do the way they do it’? The implications of this approach are that Leftist and those who ‘lean Left’ are just that way; it is how they apply what they believe. And that may be correct for most individual Leftists. But, not for the media, politicians, policymakers and those in power. The ‘higher ups’ know exactly what they are doing, and for a more sinister reason than we give them credit for. They are creating crisis upon crisis, and a need for law and order, so they can step in and solve our problems with a new form of government – and this is a worldwide-coordinated effort, a global coup d’état.

They are creating policies and weakening (or altogether ignoring laws) to encourage civil disorder, terror in our streets and general chaos. They are abrogating our constitution, erasing our borders and dismantling our system of justice in order to implement a One World ‘homogenous’, Socialist-Marxist system.

This is evidenced by the case of Smiley Martin and others like him. You can also see this occurring through the destruction of our national landmarks, pulling down of historic statues, rewriting of our history book, remaking the explanation of historical events, demonizing our past national heroes, renaming cities, sports teams, street names and the like to erase our national identity and memories of these important events, places and icons. It goes even deeper with

  • the destruction of the nuclear family system and replacing it with homosexual marriage,
  • the promotion of transgenderism among very young children,
  • the loss of free speech and of our personal rights,
  • the destruction of women’s sports through transgenderism,
  • abortion-on-demand,
  • the push to legalize some forms of pedophilia,
  • the teaching the nefarious Critical Race Theory in our schools,
  • the fallacies and politicization of global warming and climate change, to name just a few. America’s way of life is being effectively replaced with the United Nation’s Agenda 2030 and their Sustainable Development Goals, funded and driven in part by the World Economic Forum. The forerunner of Agenda 2030, (Agenda 21), was introduced into the United States by President GEORGE H.W. BUSH as one of the 178 heads of government who signed the final text of the agreement at the Earth Summit in 1992, and in the same year Representatives NANCY PELOSI, Eliot Engel and William Broomfield spoke in support of United States House of Representatives Concurrent Resolution 353, supporting implementation of Agenda 21 in the United States. The United States was a signatory country to Agenda 21, but adherents quickly reminded us that because Agenda 21 is “a legally non-binding statement of intent” and not a treaty, the United States Senate did not hold a formal debate or vote on it. It is therefore not considered to be law under Article Six of the United States Constitution, or so they say. However, former president, BILL CLINTON, signed a 1993 Executive Order, creating the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) is explicitly charged with recommending a national action plan for sustainable development to the President. So, bypassing Congress, Clinton, made it law. Next, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development is composed of leaders from government and industry, as well as from environmental, labor and civil rights organizations. The President’s Council on Sustainable Development submitted its report, “Sustainable America: A New Consensus”, to the President in early 1996. In the absence of a multi-sectoral consensus on how to achieve sustainable development in the United States, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development was conceived to formulate recommendations for the implementation of Agenda 21. In the United States, over 528 American cities are members of “Local Governments for Sustainability” or “ICLEI”, is an international Marxist and Socialist leaning sustainability organization, that helps to implement the Agenda 21 and Local Agenda 21 concepts across the world. The United States has nearly half of the ICLEI’s global membership of 1,200 cities promoting sustainable development at a local level. The United States also has one of the most comprehensively documented Agenda 21 status reports.

In response to the opposition, Don Knapp, U.S. spokesman for the ICLEI, has said “Sustainable development is not a top-down conspiracy from the U.N., but a bottom-up push from local governments”.  Finally, Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Act Plan” is the final push to fund and implement this plan as a means to end America’s national sovereignty and merge the United States into the United Nations’ confederation The American Rescue Act Plan is being touted as a plan to “give financial relief to state, local, territorial, and tribal government agencies are facing unprecedented strain in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, and the Federal Government is working tirelessly on the necessary steps to supply these entities with critical funding.

The American Rescue Plan Act provides a substantial infusion of resources to eligible state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to help reverse the negative impacts of the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.”  (See the ‘A.R.P.A. ‘fact sheet’).  Every agency in the U.S. Government is being bought out, every corporation, media outlet, university or college, every state legislature and state Governor is being given incentives as a sort of ‘bribe-by-another-name’, by way of payoffs using billions of our tax dollars disguised as ‘incentives’, but are in fact bait to lure America into a Socialist-Marxists scheme of a One World Government.

First, to make this point clear, let’s look where this relationship between the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, (A.R.P.A.) and the United Nation’s Agenda 21, Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, (S.D.G.), and where they began and where this relationship leads. Then we will see how these United Nation’s Agendas are being implemented and funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

First, please Read this introduction by the Commission for Global Governance.  “The task before UNESCO,” said its first Director-General Julian Huxley in 1946, “is the emergence of a single world culture by transferring full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization. The “new world order” will be a socialist, authoritarian global government and court with “global rule of law” and a “one-world economy,”. The recommendations of the Commission on Global Governance, if implemented, will bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood managed by a world-wide bureaucracy, under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals, and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, certified to support a belief system which contains ideas that are foreign to the American experience, and ignores other values and ideas that are precious to the American experience. (For the complete article on this relationship between the United States and the United Nations Agenda-2030, see “EXPLOSIVE DOCUMENTS – THE SECRET BUYOUT OF AMERICA.”)

These Leftist are well-trained and well organized and have been working diligently over the last 75 years and are on the verge of accomplishing all of their original goals and most of the evolving goals of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030. So the question should not be “Why are they doing what they do the way they are doing it?” because we should already know WHY. Neither should we ask, “How can they be so stupid or hateful?” They, The Leftist-Globalists-Socialists-Marxists-Communists, are very well-educated and dedicated to accomplishing their objectives. They truly believe they can solve the world’s problems and enter a new Socialist Utopia, a new golden age.

We are entering a new kind of world, a new era. It is something very unfamiliar to most of us. World forces are at work which are changing everything we have known as ‘normal’. There is an idea being implemented known as the ‘Great Global Reset’. We are being told that nothing will ever be the same again. We are being told that you must submit”!  (Quote by Klaus Martin Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum).

CHRISTIANITY IS AN OBSTACLE, A STUMBLING BLOCK

The Globalists and Socialists in favor say this Great Reset will be our world’s salvation through the elimination of wars, poverty, disease, and social injustice.  It is the same decades old mantra of Socialist’s dream of Utopia. They also believe religion can be, and is an obstacle – especially Christianity.

Those who do not agree with the precepts of Socialism say we need a different solution. We all agree, however, that we need someone or something to make our world a better and a safer place.

I suspect that many people will roll their eyes, derisively, when I say that the answers to all of these world problems – and, the problems you and I face – is Jesus and His Word.

Periods of change such as ‘The Renaissance’, ‘The Enlightenment Age’ or ‘The Industrial Revolution’, all began with an idea which thoroughly transformed the world.

An idea expressed passionately, even fervently, and zealously pursued by committed and capable people, can bring change. Often there is a cost of radical change and the expense is measured in lives and families and fortunes.

An idea, repeated often enough and argued affirmatively and often enough, which is born in a crucible of fiery trials, often gives way to amazing global change, whether for good or evil. Then, once the hearts and minds of people are either convinced or enslaved, how they view and interact within the world can be seen in some very unexpected ways.

The American Revolution, for example, was an idea born of men and women who mutually pledged their lives, fortunes and their sacred honor to one another. Once this idea was manifest, the destiny of the world was set and the world has been a different and a better place for over 250 years. That era, now it would seem, is drawing to a close.

The Advent of Jesus Christ, “The Greatest Idea” was born of God, as a child in a manger in the obscure town of Bethlehem in the region of Judea. Emerging from this obscurity was “The Greatest Idea” which became known as Jesus Christ, the ‘Son of God’ and the Son of Man.

(I am aware that since God is omniscient, He actually doesn’t have ideas as we consider them. When God has a thought, oddly enough, it has no beginning as it has always been in existence waiting for its time to be manifest – and then it is eternal.)

The appearance of The Greatest ‘Idea’, that is Jesus, and the expression of this “God-man”, changed not only how people thought about the world, but radically changed how they interacted. It has been said that Jesus and His disciples had ‘turned the world upside down’, which was an apt description since He expressed and demonstrated ideas which were counter intuitive to the human experience up to that point in time.  For examples:

You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. Matthew 5:21-22

Also, “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.” Matthew 5:38-43

And again, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”. Matthew 5:44

Jesus influenced the thoughts and behaviors of the known world by His Word and His deeds of peace among brethren and love for all humankind. His influence should rightly be called “The Greatest Idea”, as it brought change on a global scale in ethics, morals, social constructs, national economies, educational systems, and all the disciplines of the age.

But, everything temporal is subject to change. And, as time has passed, the world has continued to change in both its thought and behavior – and not always for the good of humankind.

Remarkably, it would seem, we are have not been ‘evolving’ as some like to say, but we are simply repeating history. It would seem we are specifically revisiting a bygone era, but with new advanced technologies being applied to some not-so-new ideas.

Although the world is changing, Jesus Christ, “THE GREATEST IDEA”, has not changed. Christ and His teachings are unchanging. His methods and His purpose are immutable. And, He has not forgotten the world He created by His Word, although the world is forgetting Him.

Change is rarely easy and opposing ideas almost always bring some sort of conflict. And, there has always been conflict in the hearts and minds of people when it comes to the idea of good versus evil. And this conflict intensifies as people forget God.

The standard of what is good and what is evil has been long established, although those who deny God and practice the ‘dark arts of the flesh’, would like to argue the point. Some would argue there are degrees or shades of evil. They say that some evil is not necessarily bad or harmful and therefore isn’t really evil, but are just examples of human error or mistakes. They go on to say that evil is just a concept and should be defined by each person by their own standard.

But, with Jesus, came “The Greatest Idea”. He set The Standard of Good – and that anything less than HIs Standard is evil.

It is The Mind of Christ which holds the Standard of Good. It is the Mind of Christ which transforms the mind of man and woman and how they think – for Good. It is the Mind of Christ literally living within us that overcomes the powers of the he rulers, and world forces of darkness and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the ‘heavenly places – that is in the unseen realm from whence comes all things which are seen.

There is no doubt that times are changing and the days are growing spiritually darker. Chaos, division and uncertainty reign. It is time, once again, to call on The Greatest Idea for our salvation. It is time to make the Mind of Christ our own mind and set things right.

How can I know this will set things right? How can you know this? Look at the evidence. Look at the effects. Look at the history. Make up your own mind. Don’t be swayed by doubters ‘second guessers’. Then, ‘by faith’, decide for yourself. Decide to believe “The Greatest Idea”. Believe Jesus and go after Him. Embrace Him, embrace His Greatest Idea. Follow Him and you will live! (“The mind set on the Spirit is Life and Peace”. Romans 8:6)

Finally, you must know that “The Greatest Idea” is not just an idea. “The Greatest Idea”, took on the form of a man and brought the world The Greatest Truth ever known. And He, Jesus, proved The Greatest Truth by going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, forgiving sin, healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people. And, the news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them. Large crowds followed Him from Galilee and the Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.

And for that reason, those who practice religion and the ‘dark arts of the flesh’, executed Him in an attempt to silence Him and to keep the Greatest Truth hidden.  He was crucified on a Roman criminal’s cross. He was executed for no other reason than Who He is and for What He represented and for bringing the world Hope through the Greatest Truth, The Gospel of Christ.

In an ultimate act of God’s power and in defiance of the powers of and world forces of darkness and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the ‘heavenly places’ , Jesus rose from the dead, walked the earth and as an exclamation, ascended into the Heavens in plain view of men. He is now seated at the Right Hand of God the Father, interceding on our behalf. He has also announced that He will return again, this time in the skies, to gather His Elect, and to judge the world for its evil and rebellion.

There is new global shift occurring and the Globalists have been working feverously to infiltrate the Christian Church in an effort to Everything is changing, everywhere. And, like every other substantial shift or ‘new era’ in world history, this too, began with an idea. This idea, as it turns out, is not a new idea, but an old idea, one which has been lurking in shadows of the minds of certain people for centuries. In the book of Genesis, we see Satan spreading his lies and planting his ideas of destruction in the minds of God’s children. Its reformulation has been at work for centuries. A foreshadowing of this ancient idea of evil can be found in the writings of the Bible. It is known as the Tower of Babel. And that sinister tower is being rebuilt using twenty first century technologies. And the final conflict has begun.

The one who practices sin and evil is the of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose: to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8). This is the purpose for all who call themselves the Children of God.

Those of us who have made The Greatest Truth our own and who follow Jesus as the Christ, have a role to play. God has told us, through His Son, that we will continue His Works, and we will do even greater works because He has given us the authority to complete His works, and He is now seated at the Right Hand of Power of The Father interceding for us.

Your Brother and Friend,

Mike Young

THE GREATEST TRUTH: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:16-21

The Bible has foretold of these events and what will follow. If you are interested and have the time, read this short article “GOD’S PLAN FOR PERFECTION – Prophecy, World History and the Tribulation”.  Then, if you will take the time, at the bottom of that web page read the book “THE JOURNEY TO PERFECTION” in either PDF format or as an online digital book. (I really urge you to read it because it gives clear steps on WHAT OUR RESPONSE SHOULD BE.)

THE GLOBAL MARCH TO MARXIST-COMMUNISM

I have tried to articulate the inescapable and inexorable march of the world into the death grip of Marxist-Communism. Several of my ‘well educated’ friends keep saying that is nonsense because communism is dead. It died with the old Soviet Union. Yet, here we are, at the precipice. I listen and watch the political elite of the Right and the conservative pundits as they point out all the evils and failures of the Left, but it is little more than empty complaining. They argue over the daily stream of ‘false flags’ and the ‘socio-political and economic brush fires’, but do nothing in response to the real problem. In fact, the Right, (Republicans, Conservatives, most Independents), have absolutely no idea where the Left has taken this world, with all the nations and all its inhabitants. It is all hidden in plain sight. The only way to deal with the problems we face is to recognize the END GAME of the Left. Each and every actionable program of the Left is focused on their END GAME: Complete Marxist-Communist domination. HOW CAN I KNOW THIS IS TRUE? Let’s begin by reviewing this list of quotes.  Tell me if any of these things have come to pass in American (and the world) recently:

  • “Take away a nation’s heritage, and they are more easily persuaded.“ (historical landmarks torn down, religious symbolism destroyed, rewriting of history).
  • “Communism begins where atheism begins. “ (Church attendance is falling to dramatic lows; over 50% of those attending church don’t believe the Bible is true or that Jesus was born of a virgin, and more.)
  • “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions.” (Government control of education, ‘no child left behind’, Critical race theory taught at all levels of schools, national association of teachers (Marxists in nature), Federal Education Department.)
  • “We have no compassion, and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror.” (Black Live Matter, Antifa, burning down our cities, killing people, Defund Police movement, murder in our streets, schools and churches, and the LEFT blames the gun.)
  • “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.” (This is the rally cry of the American democrat party.)
  • “If you can cut the people off from their history, then they can be easily persuaded.” (Revision of text books, historical data, historical sites.)
  • “The democratic concept of man is false, because it is Christian. The democratic concept holds that each man is a sovereign being. This is the illusion, dream, and postulate of Christianity.” (Paganism taught in schools, government and many churches.)
  • There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.”
  • “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.”
  • “When the sufferers learn to think, then the thinkers will learn to suffer.”
  • “The Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. “
  • “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope. “
  • A heavy or progressive or graduated income tax is necessary for the proper development of Communism. “
  • “The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.
  • “The unity is brought about by force. “
  • “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. “
  • “There is no greater stupidity than for people to marry and so surrender themselves to the small miseries of domestic and private life. “
  • “Taxes are the source of life for the bureaucracy, the army and the court, in short, for the whole apparatus of the executive power. Strong government and heavy taxes are identical. “

The foregoing are quotes by  Karl Marx, one of the founding fathers of Commnism.

  • “Give me your four-year-olds, and in a generation I will build a socialist state. “
  • “We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us. “
  • “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. “
  • “The goal of socialism is communism. “
  • “Why should freedom of speech and freedom of press be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what it believes to be right allow itself to be criticized? It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government? “
  • “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. “
  • “People always have been, and they always will be, stupid victims of deceit and self-deception in politics. “
  • “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world. “
  • “One man with a gun can control 100 without one. “
  • “As an ultimate objective, “peace” simply means communist world control.”
  • “Atheism is a natural and inseparable part of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. “
  • “It is, of course, much easier to shout, abuse, and howl than to attempt to relate, to explain. “
  • “Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism. “
  • “One of the basic conditions for the victory of socialism is the arming of the workers Communist and the disarming of the bourgeoisie to the middle class.”
  • “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. “
  • “Give us the child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevik forever. “
  • “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel. “
  • “We are not shooting enough professors. “
  • “Germany will militarize herself out of existence, England will expand herself out of existence, and America will spend herself out of existence. “
  • “It is necessary – secretly and urgently, to prepare the terror. “
  • “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation. “
  • “We want to achieve a new and better order of society: in this new and better society there must be neither rich nor poor; all will have to work. Not a handful of rich people, but all the working people must enjoy the fruits of their common labor. Machines and other improvements must serve to ease the work of all, and not to enable a few to grow rich at the expense of millions and tens of millions of people. This  is the new and better society, and it is called a socialist society. “
  • “There can be nothing more abominable than religion.”

The foregoing are quotes by Vladimir Lenin, founders of Communist Leninism. SECONDLY, WATCH THIS VIDEO by the World Economic Forum, (Globalist-Marxist), in cooperation with the United Nations, in concert with the Agenda-2030: “8 PREDICTIONS FOR THE WORLD IN 2030”

THIRD, If you have the time, study this web page, “EXPLOSIVE DOCUMENTS – THE SECRET BUYOUT OF AMERICA”, and be sure to read each and every link for heretofore ‘secret details’ found in Government Documents of the Marxists takeover of America and the world! Rather than spending billions of dollars and endless hours arguing over each and every program and point of the LEFT, we must expose the END GAME and take radical action to stop their advance, eradicate the opponent’s base, and put an end to this four century-old war.  FOURTH, EDUCATE YOURELF.  Become familiar with the basics of the major conflicting and competing socio-political and economic systems that guide and control our lives. Use these charts:

CAPITALISM                                   SOCIALISM                              COMMUNISM

Private Ownership         Limited Private Ownership          No Private Ownership Market Forces                   Govt + Private Ownership             Central Government Class Distinction              Limited Class Distinction              No Class Distinction (You Choose)                      (Govt allows some choice)           (Everyone is poor) Produce for Profit             Produce for Societal needs                For Basic Needs  

Differences between Capitalism, Socialism and Communism

Differentiating Factors Capitalism Communism Socialism
Ideology Maximisation of profit by any means necessary. It also believes in Laissez-Faire, a philosophy that emphasizes on leaving circumstances to run their natural course without any external intervention From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs From each according to his ability, to each according to his contribution

NOTE:  From the Communist Manifesto: “Socialism is the first necessary step from Capitalism to Communism. Once Communism is established, Socialism is done away with, discarded”.

Complimentarian Systems explained:

Marxism Communism
A political ideology based on Karl Marx’s ideas is known as Marxism. A political system based on Marxist ideology is known as Communism.
Marxism can be considered as the theory. Practical Implementation of Marxism could be considered as Communism.
The framework on which a state is developed is known as Marxism A stateless society where all the people are considered equal and treated equally is known as Communism.
Marxism is a way to view the world, a system of analysis. A form of Government, condition of a society, a political movement can be considered as Communism.
The transformation of society into Socialism, and ultimately to Communism is the philosophy of Marxism. Communism also believes in the same transformation, but the differentiating factor between the two is the path that needs to be taken for the transformation to take place. Communism believes in the transformation through revolutions.
One may not say that the birth of Marxism was dependent on Communism. The very existence/birth of Communism depended on Marxism.

Human costs of communism.  Few would deny any longer that communism-Marxism-Leninism and its variants, meant in practice bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal gulags and forced labor, fatal deportations, man-made famines, extrajudicial executions and show trials, and genocide. It is also widely known that as a result millions of innocent people have been murdered in cold blood.”

FINALLY, take a Look at the History of THE TOWER OF BABELThe Bible tells of the beginnings of the idea of a One World Government and warns this system is coming again – in the Last Days. “They said, ‘Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.’ “The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. “The LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.” Genesis 11:4-6.

DON’T BE DECEIVED The agenda of this “migration” and Globalism or One World Government is not the stuff of just any book. It is stuff of THE BOOK, that is The Bible. Genesis chapter 11 gives us the prophecy, the foreshadowing of the coming One World Government.

The Tower of Babel, built around, 2242 B.C., was a post-Flood rebellion against God by Noah’s descendants. As told about in Genesis 11:1-9, it is meant to explain why the world’s peoples speak different languages. According to the account, a united humanity in the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating eastward, comes to the land of Shinar (שִׁנְעָר). There, they agree to build a city and a tower tall enough to reach heaven.

(NOTE: “tall enough to reach to heaven” can be a metaphor for “man reaching to heaven, making himself god, to accomplish his own desires. This is the ‘Utopian dream’ of the Socialist and Communist manifestos; the State being our god – from cradle to grave)

This effort of uniting in a global community has been underway for about 4,200 years, about 100 years after ‘The Flood’, but before Abraham was born. This is ‘forecast’ or what is Prophesied in the Bible. Is it underway? Should we PREPARE?

NOTE:  Becoming aware of, or even educated on these matters, won’t change much UNLESS YOU AND I DO SOMETHING, NOW!  Read on and find a complete guide to ACTION.  1.  USE THIER OWN BOOK ON THEM: The methods used by radical Leftists as taught in Saul Alinsky’s book, are demonstrably and ostensibly used by the American Democrat Party, by Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”, within the U.S. Sustainable Development Goals, within the Communist Constitution and Program 2015, by the United Nations Agenda 2030 and by the World Economic Forum.

Rule #1.  “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
 

Rule #2.  “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

One who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will lodge in the shadow of the Almighty.
 
Job 11:18
Then you would trust, because there is hope; And you would look around and rest securely.
 

Rule #3.  “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

‘You shall therefore follow My statutes and keep My judgments so as to carry them out, so that you may live securely on the land.

Rule #4.  “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

Rule #5.  “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Ephesians 6:14

Stand firm therefore, having belted your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

Rule #6.  “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

Rule #7.  “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.

Rule #8.  “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

Rule #9.  “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

Rule #10.  “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign. If you push a negative hard enough, it will
push through and become a positive.

Rule #11.  “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

12. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

(Remembering, our ways are not the ways of the world. Do all things to the glory of God.)

LOVE – HATE – WOKE – LOVE – HATE – WOKE – LOVE – HATE – WOKE

I had a friend who was, well, it’s hard to describe what she was. She was a lot of things from my perspective. First and foremost, she was a friend. My family loved her. We love her husband and all of her children as a second, (or third), family. But there were many who did not understand her and did not care to understand and, frankly, did not like her.

She was a Christian who hung tenaciously to Christian values.  She loved God, trusted God, and willingly and fearlessly told others about the life changing Gospel of Jesus Christ. But like the Apostle Paul, as recorded in Romans 7:14-25, this lady could also say:

 “We know that the law is spiritual; but I am nonspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

“So, I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ, our Lord!”

She was horribly conflicted, even tormented by her occasional aberrant behavior.

What I am about to say is not meant to be harsh or critical, but is my experience with this lady, and it was endearing, but it could also be dangerous at times.

She was a quick learner, a talent at almost everything she attempted, yet she could be profoundly socially awkward and tended to make very bad life decisions when it came to handling personal relationships.

She could be fiercely loyal and extremely disloyal at the same time to the same person.

She could be very generous to those in need and withhold from anyone she perceived as unworthy.

She could be gentle and full of joy one minute and insanely angry and out-of-control the next minute.

She demanded honesty, truth, fair treatment and justice from others, but she could be patently dishonest and dangerously untrustworthy when her end would justify her means. It was almost, at times, as if she felt she was due what she was never paid, and she would collect that debt by taking it as an emotional toll on others.

Her private cry was, “If people could just understand where I have come from, what I’ve been put through, how I have been treated, then perhaps others could understand why I am the way I am, and I could be forgiven, justified, and they could like me”.

I think what she was saying is that if people could see the trials and injustices she had suffered while growing up, people would possibly see WHY she feels like she feels and acts how she acts. Then perhaps they could see past her failings and perhaps even come to accept her as she is – and maybe, even like her ‘as she is’.

Later in her life, she was so obsessed with making herself better understood and better known and perhaps as a means of ‘confession’ that she wrote a book. Maybe this was a way to ‘confess her sins’ and to find some kind of forgiveness and perhaps even a sliver of affirmation of her life.

This synopsis by Professor Valery Legasov is associated with this book:  We live in a broken world: broken families, homes, marriages, hearts, and relationships. We’re broken, and we stay broken because of one thing, we refuse to speak the truth about ourselves. We are apt to believe the lies we tell ourselves to defend our position, attitude, and actions. The more we are pressed, the more likely we are to double down. We harden our hearts to our own hurt, which extrapolates out and affects every area of our lives. The life you have is the life you built by the lies or the truth you live by. “Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later that debt is paid.”

THIS LADY’S JOURNEY, at least for me, DESCRIBES THE VERY ESSENCE OF the term “WOKE”; not in racial terms, but in terms of social justice and human in very real and very personal terms. What separated her from the consequences of the WOKE movement is God’s grace and her faith in Jesus Christ.

What is WOKE?

Merriam-Webster added the word to its dictionary in 2017, defining it as, “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice).” The Oxford Dictionary adopted it the same year, defining it as “originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice.”

“Woke is a slang term that is easing into the mainstream from some varieties of a dialect called African American Vernacular English (sometimes called AAVE),” according to Merriam-Webster. “In AAVE, awake is often rendered as woke, as in, ‘I was sleeping, but now I’m woke.’”

WOKE, in my studied opinion is, besides being very bad grammar, a spreading twisted narcissistic pathology.  It says, that ‘I had a hard time growing up’.  Most likely you were treated unfairly, perhaps abused in some fashion, and/or denigrated, marginalized, criticized, demonized and cast aside. You felt unloved and mistreated, and you probably were, to some degree, great or small.

Now you are AWAKE to the facts of your hardships and the injustices you suffered, and you are going to get even. You are going to get what you are owed – whatever you decide that might be.

You are going to make others pay. It doesn’t matter that maybe only a few people are responsible for your mistreatment. It doesn’t matter that it was a very long time ago and that most of ‘those people’ are now dead. In your WOKE state of mind, EVERYONE has to pay, now that you are WOKE.

This is what is being passed off as Critical Race Theory, the movement for Reparations for Black Americans. This narcissistic pathology has seeped, or has been force-fed, into the thinking of many everyday Americans. Worse yet, our school children are being indoctrinated, they are having their minds poisoned, by this HATE THOUGHT, and it is in part thanks to the efforts of co-conspirators, the National Teachers Association and Union.

Americans who are just doing their best to be good people by being honest, fair, just, hardworking, kind, generous and faithful are being both unfairly punished and indoctrinated with this Marxists Hate Doctrine by the enemies of our educational systems and of our government.

Who are these people? Oddly enough, they can be traced and found to be an odd mixture of practicing racists, pseudo-intellectuals (with accompanying high-sounding degrees), practicing Marxists, Black Lives Matter acting as their militant arm and members of the Democrat party in America. (Most sources are biased, but, Wikipedia on CRT gives some Leftist insight. An article in The Atlantic also offers some insights.

I offer this short and abbreviated series for more detail and a more complete understanding:  “Critical Race Theory – The Threat, Exposed and Simplified”. (Please. This link is a‘must read’ in order to complete this reasoning and explanation of what is happening to our country, government, our schools and churches AND WHAT YOU AND I CAN DO ABOUT IT.)

PS:  I want to be VERY CLEAR that I do not condemn or criticize those who are snared by the insidious evil of Satan. Being honest about where we are, what afflicts us, is the first step to a long recovery and being made whole as God intended.

So, we are not too quick to judge and condemn, read what afflicts us all in these Last Days:

Matthew 24:4,And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. Verse 5. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will mislead many people. Verse 6. And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. Verse 7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Verse 8. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pains.

Verse 12. “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will become cold.”

Robert Welch’s prophetic warnings from his speech in 1958, “An Insider’s Plan to Destroy America”, are now a reality in America’s politics, economy, schools and society:

History and statistics show that Communists, everywhere, say one thing but live by a different set of standards and rules. History also shows they will say whatever is necessary to gain power and control and that their endgame is the antithesis of what they say. Everywhere Communism has been tried, it has gone badly. Very badly. It has brought loss of freedoms, lack of basic needs and misery; and if you resist you may face imprisonment or death – or both. (If you doubt it, look at the contemporary examples of Argentina, Brazil and Cuba.)

(Statistic chart by Professor R.J. Rummel, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Hawaii. He has spent his career assembling data on collective violence and war with a view toward helping their resolution or elimination.)

Historical statistics show Communists have murdered over 110,286,000,  (yes, that’s million) people worldwide since 1900.  Although in the face of irrefutable historical evidence, the communists today, claim it is not true.

INFLUENCES OF COMMUNISM IN AMERICA

Responding to the impatience of a New Left generation of activists in the 1960s, in his widely cited Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer (1971), Saul Alinsky defended the Hegelian arts both of confrontation and of compromise involved in community organizing as keys to the struggle for social justice. (And, yes, that is how Barack Obama got his notoriety, also.)

An American community activist and political theorist, Alinksy, through the Chicago-based Industrial Areas Foundation helping poor communities organize to press demands upon landlords, politicians and business leaders won national recognition and notoriety.

Alinsky, was an influencer who contributed to the methodologies of the modern day United Nation’s Globalist-Socialist-Marxist movements. Alinsky often referred to the book, ”The Prince”, written by Niccolò Machiavelli. The general theme of The Prince is ‘accepting that the aims of princes, such as glory and survival’, justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. Machiavelli’s writings sets readers up for a high degree of ruthlessness and realpolitik, and the book does not disappoint. Subsequently, Saul David Alinsky wrote his book, ”Rules for Radicals based on much of Machiavelli’s principals for the ‘Haves’ on how to hold power, and for the ‘Have-Nots’ on how to take it away. Alinsky recommended working mostly within the system, though in the twisted way Machiavelli is reputed to have done.

Below, you will find Alinsky’s 13 “Rules for Radicals,” offered with his provision that political activism cannot be a self-serving enterprise: “People cannot be free unless they are willing to sacrifice some of their interests to guarantee the freedom of others. The price of democracy is the ongoing pursuit of the common good by all of the people.”

  1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
    2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
    3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
    4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
    5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
    6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
    7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
    8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
    9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
    10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
    11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
    12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
    13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

Alinsky’s rules have been used for anti-democratic means and have been effective in setting the stage for and aiding the Communist Party USA to disrupt and transform America’s constitution, legal systems, financial institutions and educational institutions into Socialist-Marxist systems and the unraveling of the fabric of American society.

The Communist Party U.S.A., (officially the Communist Party of the United States of America, (C.P.U.S.A.), is a communist party in the United States established in 1919 after a split in the Socialist Party of America following the Russian Revolution.

The history of the C.P.U.S.A. is closely related to the American labor movement and communist parties worldwide. The party was influential in American politics in the first half of the 20th century and played a prominent role in the labor movement from the 1920s through the 1940s.

The C.P.U.S.A. received significant funding from the Soviet Union and crafted its public positions to match those of Moscow. The C.P.U.S.A. also used a covert apparatus to assist the Soviets with their intelligence activities in the United States and utilized a network of front organizations to shape public opinion.

THE BIGGEST LIE

According to the constitution of the Communist Party USA, (C.P.U.S.A.), adopted at the 30th National Convention in 2014, the Communist Party operates on the principle of democratic centralism, its highest authority being the quadrennial National Convention. Article 6, Section 3 of the 2001 Constitution, laid out certain positions as non-negotiable and all of which are now evident in America’s political, educational and social constructs:

      • Struggle for the unity of the working class,
      • against all forms of national oppression, national chauvinism, discrimination and segregation,
      • against all racist ideologies and practices, …
      • against all manifestations of male supremacy and discrimination against women, …
      • against homophobia and all manifestations of discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people.
      • Among the points in the party’s “Immediate Program” are a
      • $15.00 per hour minimum wage for all workers, national universal health care and
      • Opposition to privatization of Social Security.
      • Economic measures such as increased taxes on “the rich and corporations”,
      • “Strong regulation” of the financial industry,
      • “Regulation and public ownership of utilities” and
      • Increased federal aid to cities and states;
      • opposition to the Iraq War and other military interventions;
      • opposition to free trade treaties such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA);
      • nuclear disarmament and
      • a reduced military budget;
      • various civil rights provisions;
      • campaign finance reform including public financing of campaigns; and election law reform, including instant runoff voting.

(the foregoing is from Wikipedia, The Communist Party USA)

NOTE:  IT IS IMPORTANT to compare,

(#1), the Communist Party USA’s constitution to,

(#2), The Preamble, Declarations and Sustainable Goals of the United Nation’s Marxist Agenda 2030 and,

(#3), The Joe Biden American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

You will find the stated goals and methods in all three documents are identical.  The only reasonable and logical conclusion is that the Globalist-Socialist-Communist-Marxist movement through the United Nations, over the last 76 years have seized control of the U.S. Government.  (Note: If you do not see this or deny it, you are either a Globalist-Marxist, a sympathizer or totally unaware of your surroundings.)

The Communist party endorsed both Barack Obama (2009) and Joe Biden (2020) in their bid for the presidency. The Communist’s grand prize is the subjugation of the United States and with the American democrat party in control of congress and the White House, they are making great strides toward that goal. Their only interruption was the surprise election of Donald Trump in 2017, which was met with the full fury of the clandestine operations of the Globalist-Socialist-Communist-Marxist already embedded in the U.S. government, the FBI and the media.

WE WERE WARNED

We, as a nation, were warned of what was coming and why it was coming in a speech given by Robert Welch, founder of The John Birch Society. Here is the transcript to that speech to the JBS council in 1958 warning about the eventual overthrow and destruction of America by Communists (The video follows the transcript, below):

“…You are a part of that plan of course, which is to induce the gradual surrender of American sovereignty piece by piece and step by step to various international organizations of which the United Nations is the outstanding but far from the only example.

“Now, here are the aims for the (destruction of the) United States (by the Communists).

#1] greatly expanded government spending for every conceivable means of getting rid of ever larger sums of American money as wastefully as possible.

#2] higher and then much higher taxes.

#3] an increasingly unbalanced budget despite the higher taxes.

#4] wild inflation of our currency.

#5] government controls of prices wages and materials supposedly to combat inflation.

#6] greatly increased socialistic controls over every operation of our economy and every activity of our daily lives. It is is to be accompanied naturally and automatically by a correspondingly huge increase in the size of our bureaucracy and in both the cost and reach of our domestic government.

#7] far more centralization of power in Washington and the practical elimination of our state lines. There is a many-faceted drive at way to have our state lines eventually mean no more within the nation than our county lines do now within the state’s.

#8] thee steady advance of federal aid to, and control over, our educational system leading to complete federalization of our public education.

#9] a constant hammering into the American consciousness of the horror of modern warfare. The beauties and the absolute necessity of peace, peace always on communist terms of course.

#10] the consequence willingness of the American people to allow the steps of appeasement by our government which amount to a piecemeal surrender of the rest of the free world and of the United States itself.”

Robert Welch’s predictions were either the result of privileged insider information or keen political acumen. Either way, Welch’s speech bordered on prophetic. The destructive means and methods of the Communist party, as outlined in Welch’s speech, are now a reality in America and Communism is choking the life out of the America’s political system, our economy, our schools and is fracturing our society and has set Americans against one the other.

This is not the end of the story – it is merely the beginning, and the question we should be asking, is not ‘HOW did this happen’, but ‘WHY?’. Why has our  government and society fallen prey to the likes of Alinsky and Socialist-Marxism while ignoring the warnings in Welch’s, “The Insider’s Plan to Destroy America”?

The answer is both simple and complex. But, if you are a Christian, a conservative and a freedom loving individual, you need to know the answer and what to do about it.

A foreshadowing of the modern Globalist-Socialist-Communist-Marxist movement can be traced as far back as 2242 B.C.. The Bible, in Genesis 11:1-9, records an event known as the building of the Tower of Babel, a post-Flood rebellion against God by Noah’s descendants. According to the account, a united humanity in the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating eastward, comes to the land of Shinar. There, they agreed to build a city and a tower ‘tall enough to reach heaven’.

The Bible reports these people as saying, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let’s make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of all the earth.” (Tall enough to reach to heaven” is a metaphor for “man reaching to heaven, making himself god, to accomplish his own desires.)

 The Bible goes on to say that “The Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the men had built. And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they have started to do, and now nothing which they plan to do will be impossible for them.” (In response, God confused their language and scattered them abroad.)

The effort to unite into a global community has been in the heart and mind of humankind for the past 4,200 years. The aims of the architects of the Tower of Babel was similar to the current  Socialists and Communists: The State being god – from cradle to grave.

Although similar to the Tower of Babel, the Globalist aims have evolved and developed into greater ambitions than just a global community. The Globalists believe they can eliminate wars and disease while creating worldwide peace. Aided by technology, they truly believe they can end poverty and hunger, improve the health of our planet, and create global prosperity for all people. And with an eye to the future, they believe and are planning future colonization of other planets, beginning with Mars, building for themselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven.  (See the Agenda 2030)

The accomplishment of these ambitious goals are only possible if the world joins together in concert as a global community and submits to a unified global political system of united nations: A One World Government.

The Globalist movement which has emerged through the United Nations has effectively employed Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals while adopting the ideologies of the Socialist and Communists manifestos as the framework for this New World Order. In case you doubt these movements are Communist and Marxist, please compare the steps in Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals”, the warnings issued by Robert Welch, what you see in our government and society with these quotes by Karl Marx and Joseph Lenin.

Karl Marx:

  • “Take away a nation’s heritage, and they are more easily persuaded to Communsim. “
  • “Communism begins where atheism begins. “
  • “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions. “
  • “We have no compassion, and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror. “
  • “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism. “
  • “If you can cut the people off from their history, then they can be easily persuaded. “
  • “The democratic concept of man is false, because it is Christian. The democratic concept holds that each man is a sovereign being. This is the illusion, dream, and postulate of Christianity. “
  • There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience. “
  • “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property. “
  • “The Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. “
  • A heavy or progressive or graduated income tax is necessary for the proper development of Communism. “
  • “The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.
  • “The unity is brought about by force. “
  • “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. “
  • “Taxes are the source of life for the bureaucracy, the army and the court, in short, for the whole apparatus of the executive power. Strong government and heavy taxes are identical.”

(Note: If you will stop and think, you will realize that all of these aims of Marx are now evident in America’s systems and institutions, and most of them have come by violent protests and subverion.)

Joseph Lenin:

  • “Give me your four-year-olds, and in a generation I will build a socialist state. “
  • “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. “
  • “The goal of socialism is communism. “
  • “Why should freedom of speech and freedom of press be allowed?
  • Why should a government which is doing what it believes to be right allow itself to be criticized?
  • It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns.
  • Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government? “
  • “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. “
  • “People always have been, and they always will be, stupid victims of deceit and self-deception in politics. “
  • “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world. “
  • “One man with a gun can control 100 without one. “
  • “As an ultimate objective, “peace” simply means communist world control.”
  • “Atheism is a natural and inseparable part of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. “
  • “It is, of course, much easier to shout, abuse, and howl than to attempt to relate, to explain. “
  • “Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism. “
  • “One of the basic conditions for the victory of socialism is the arming of the workers Communist and the disarming of the bourgeoisie to the middle class.”
  • “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel. “
  • “It is necessary – secretly and urgently, to prepare the terror. “
  • “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation. “
  • “There can be nothing more abominable than religion.”

(Note: Once again, if you will stop and think, you will realize that all of these aims of Lenin are now evident in America’s systems and institutions, and most of them have come by violent protests and subverion.)

They have not only made great strides toward implementing the goals of their Socialist Utopia, they have now brazenly stated that they will have achieved their original goal by the year 2030, which is Global domination.

There are two major obstacles the Globalists must still overcome, the United States government and society, and Christianity. Until these two are subdued and eliminated or transformed the final steps of the Globalist One World Government system is stymied.

The advent of the Joe Biden presidency and the passing into law of his American Rescue Plan Act could be harbingers of the final stages of the transformation of America from a free democratic constitutional republic and a world super power to merely a cog in the Globalization of a Socialist United Nations. (See, “We are Getting it Wrong” and “The Secret Buyout of America”).

This leaves Christianity and the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the final barrier between a free world and a godless Socialist-Marxist One World Government; and the Church has been under a relentless attack from within and without for decades and has either been replaced by institutions of religious humanism (falsely using the name of the Christian Church) or is being transformed into a religious ecclesiastical hierarchy from the inside, at an alarming rate. A One World church is emerging that is antithetical to the God of Christians and Jews and to The Christ of the Bible. (See, “The One World Church” and “The False Church Emerges”).

Someplace along the way, over the last two thousand years, it seems that many of the people calling themselves Christians, have come to assume that Jesus was either some kind of a ‘progressive left-wing ideologue’ or a pacifist and have modeled their lives as such. Let’s be crystal clear: Both assumptions are wrong. Dead wrong!

Unfortunately, the Church leadership in America has bought into the Leftist propaganda that the Church should stay out of politics. The problem with that assertion is two-fold:

#1. This has created confusion within the church regarding its mission and methods. The mission and methods of Jesus were never political but they were both clear and confrontational. Jesus said, “For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!

 TO TESTIFY TO THE TRUTH

John 18:37 “Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!

TO BRING A SWORD

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Verse 35 For I came to TURN A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; Verse 36 and A PERSON’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!

 TO FULFILL THE LAW

Matthew 5:17 Do not presume that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill the Law and the Prophets.”  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!

TO CALL SINNERS

Mark 2:17 And hearing this, Jesus *said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”  This, too, is our calling!

TO SAVE THE WORLD

John 12:47 If anyone hears My teachings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.”   In a very real sense, This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!, by lifting the Name of Jesus, telling others and leading them to Him

TO CAST FIRE & BRING DIVISION UPON THE EARTH

Luke 12:49 “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! Verse 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! Verse 51 Do you think that I came to provide peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather to create division;  This, too, is our calling and our method of resistance!

 #2. The Church through the teachings of the Bible explains and defines politics. It is true that the Church should not become political nor should it let the contemporary politics influence or become the message of the Church. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, His life, His teachings, His work of salvation by His death and His resurrection are the core message of the Bible and the Church. But when the Gospel is correctly understood and the life and message of Jesus is correctly lived out with conviction, politics are defined within the framework of the Judeo-Christian ethos. (also see The American civil war is over Judeo-Christian values.)

 “WHAT HE REALLY MEANT?”

John 14:12 “Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I am going to the Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”

I have heard so many preachers and bible teachers try to justify or explain away these Words of Jesus because they just cannot fathom the gentle and sweet ‘dashboard Jesus’ saying such things as we find in the verses cited.  These same confused preachers really get tied in a knot over John 14:12.  They will begin their commentary of teaching it with, “what this really means is…”.

Jesus said what He meant and meant exactly what He said.  We need to get over it and get on with it.

Jesus always, taught the Will of His Father, then, demonstrated what He taught. He expects us to do the same. Ephesians, chapter six, gives us a clear teaching and picture of the type of preparation and resolve we are to assume.

STAND FIRM:

Ephesians 6:10-17, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

Your Brother and Friend,

Mike Young

P.S.: Let’s please remeber that ‘God takes no pleasure in those who shrink back’.  Let’s boldly advance the message of the Gospel and speak the Truth in the face of the opposition! Resist the devil, and he will flee from you! Draw near to God and He will draw near to you!

WE ARE GETTING IT WRONG – An Exposé

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links for important details in lieu of footnotes and references.)

Another example of how we and the media (and yes, even Fox News) are either misunderstanding why the LEFTIST are doing WHAT they are doing, the WAY they are doing it, or they are lying. Or perhaps they are deliberately misreporting the news in order to stir emotions to increase viewership for monetary reasons.

To Wit:

“Smiley Martin, 27, was arrested by the Sacramento Police Department on Tuesday. His role in the deadly encounter remains unclear, yet his criminal history is in focus. He served only four years of a 10-year prison sentence, being released in February over objections from the local prosecutor.

“The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office strongly opposed Smiley Martin’s release from the 10-year prison sentence in a letter last year, the Sacramento Bee reported, citing public record documents.

“Inmate Martin’s criminal conduct is violent and lengthy,” wrote Deputy District Attorney Danielle Abildgaard in a two-page letter to the Board of Parole Hearings on April 29, 2021.

“In the correspondence, Abildgaard outlines Martin’s criminal history dating back to 2013, which include multiple robberies, firearms violations, and providing false information to police.”

FOX NEWS’ afternoon broadcast, “THE FIVE”, led by Greg Gutfield, discussed criminal Smiley Martin, emphasizing his early release from prison over the objections of DDA Danielle Abildgaard, who said if Smiley is released he will continue to commit crimes and would likely hurt someone.

THE FIVE’s conversation focused around the poor judgment, liberal ideology and stupidity of the parole office for releasing him. The criticism of Leftist thought and behavior brought to mind the unspoken question, “Why do they do that” when the results are almost always dreadful or deadly?

This seems to be conservative’s standard response to Leftist politics and ideologies: Complain, criticize and ask ‘why do they do what they do the way they do it’? The implications of this approach is that Leftist and those who ‘lean Left’ are just that way; it is how they apply what they believe. And that may be correct for most individual Leftists. But, not for the media, politicians, policymakers and those in power.

The ‘higher ups’ know exactly what they are doing, and for a more sinister reason than we give them credit for. They are creating policies and weakening (or altogether ignoring laws) to encourage civil disorder, terror in our streets and general chaos. They are abrogating our constitution and dismantling our system of justice in order to implement a Socialist and Marxist system. They are creating a crisis, a need for law and order, so they can step in and solve our problems with a new form of government.

This is evidenced by the case of Smiley Martin and others like him. You can also see this occurring through the destruction of the nuclear family system, homosexual rights and transgender rights over personal rights, the destruction of women’s sports by transgenders, abortion, the push to legalize some forms of pedophilia, teaching Critical Race Theory in our schools, the fallacies and politicization of global warming and climate change, to name just a few.

America’s way of life is being effectively replaced with the United Nation’s Agenda 2030 and their Sustainable Development Goals, funded and driven in part by the World Economic Forum.

The forerunner of Agenda 2030, (Agenda 21), was introduced into the United States by President GEORGE H.W. BUSH as one of the 178 heads of government who signed the final text of the agreement at the Earth Summit in 1992, and in the same year Representatives NANCY PELOSI, Eliot Engel and William Broomfield spoke in support of United States House of Representatives Concurrent Resolution 353, supporting implementation of Agenda 21 in the United States.

The United States was a signatory country to Agenda 21, but adherents quickly reminded us that because Agenda 21 is “a legally non-binding statement of intent” and not a treaty, the United States Senate did not hold a formal debate or vote on it. It is therefore not considered to be law under Article Six of the United States Constitution, or so they say.

However, former president, BILL CLINTON, signed a 1993 Executive Order, creating the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) is explicitly charged with recommending a national action plan for sustainable development to the President. So, bypassing Congress, Clinton, made it law.

Next, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development is composed of leaders from government and industry, as well as from environmental, labor and civil rights organizations.

The President’s Council on Sustainable Development submitted its report, “Sustainable America: A New Consensus”, to the President in early 1996. In the absence of a multi-sectoral consensus on how to achieve sustainable development in the United States, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development was conceived to formulate recommendations for the implementation of Agenda 21.

In the United States, over 528 American cities are members of “Local Governments for Sustainability” or “ICLEI”, is an international Marxist and Socialist leaning sustainability organization, that helps to implement the Agenda 21 and Local Agenda 21 concepts across the world. The United States has nearly half of the ICLEI’s global membership of 1,200 cities promoting sustainable development at a local level.

The United States also has one of the most comprehensively documented Agenda 21 status reports. In response to the opposition, Don Knapp, U.S. spokesman for the ICLEI, has said “Sustainable development is not a top-down conspiracy from the U.N., but a bottom-up push from local governments”. 

Finally, Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Act Plan” is the final push to fund and implement this plan as a means to end America’s national sovereignty and merge the United States into the United Nations’ confederation

The American Rescue Act Plan is being touted as a plan to “give financial relief to state, local, territorial, and tribal government agencies are facing unprecedented strain in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, and the Federal Government is working tirelessly on the necessary steps to supply these entities with critical funding. The American Rescue Plan Act provides a substantial infusion of resources to eligible state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to help reverse the negative impacts of the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.”  (See the ‘A.R.P.A. ‘fact sheet’).

 Every agency in the U.S. Government is being bought out, every corporation, media outlet, university or college, every state legislature and state Governor is being given incentives as a sort of ‘bribe-by-another-name’, by way of payoffs using billions of our tax dollars disguised as ‘incentives’, but are in fact bait to lure America into a Socialist-Marxists scheme of a One World Government.

First, to make this point clear, let’s look where this relationship between the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, (A.R.P.A.) and the United Nation’s Agenda 21, Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, (S.D.G.), and where they began and where this relationship leads.

Then we will see how these United Nation’s Agendas are being implemented and funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

First, please Read this introduction by the Commission for Global Governance.  “The task before UNESCO,” said its first Director-General Julian Huxley in 1946, “is the emergence of a single world culture by transferring full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization.

The “new world order” will be a socialist, authoritarian global government and court with “global rule of law” and a “one-world economy,”.

The recommendations of the Commission on Global Governance, if implemented, will bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood managed by a world-wide bureaucracy, under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals, and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, certified to support a belief system which contains ideas that are foreign to the American experience, and ignores other values and ideas that are precious to the American experience. (For the complete article on this relationship between the United States and the United Nations Agenda-2030, see “EXPLOSIVE DOCUMENTS – THE SECRET BUYOUT OF AMERICA.

These Leftist are well-trained and well organized and have been working diligently over the last 75 years and are on the verge of accomplishing all of their original goals and most of the evolving goals of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030.

So the question should not be “Why are they doing what they do the way they are doing it?” because we should already know WHY. Neither should we ask, “How can they be so stupid or hateful?”

They, The Leftist-Globalists-Socialists-Marxists-Communists, are very well-educated and dedicated to accomplish their objectives. They truly believe they can solve the world’s problems and enter a new Socialist Utopia, a new golden age.

The Bible has foretold of these events and what will follow. If you are interested and have the time, read this short article “GOD’S PLAN FOR PERFECTION – Prophecy, World History and the Tribulation”.  Then, if you will take the time, at the bottom of that web page read the book “THE JOURNEY TO PERFECTION” in either PDF format or as an online digital book. (I really urge you to read it because it gives clear steps on WHAT OUR RESPONSE SHOULD BE.)

MARXISM – GLOBALISM – Episode 2

(You can listen by audio; pause the audio to follow page links, then, when you are ready, resume the audio. Please note: I use page links in lieu of footnotes and references.)

GLOBALISM – MARXISM – Agenda 2030, Episode 2 of The Series

My previous article explained how the Globalist-Marxist United Nations endeavors to use terms, phrases and a style of language acceptable to everyone and offensive to no one in order to hide their true agenda and the nefarious methods to be employed.

Here is another example from an excerpt from U.S. Aid.Gov: The Biden-Harris Administration’s Request is a reflection of the critical importance of development and humanitarian assistance in advancing US interests around the world. This Budget will advance USAID efforts to: Combat Climate Change, Advance Democratic Values, Address the Root Causes of Irregular Migration, Strengthen Global Health Leadership, Bolster Humanitarian Assistance, Expand Inclusive Economic Growth, Improve Resilience and Security, Invest in Our People, and Restore Support for Key National Security Partners and Advance Peace in accordance with the Interim National Security Strategy Guidance.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S DISCRETIONARY FUNDING REQUEST

Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 President’s Budget Request For The United States Agency For International Development (USAID).

COMBATS CLIMATE CHANGE”

  • Increases USAID Bilateral Climate Change Programming to more than $600 million, to dramatically expand the scale and geographic reach of USAID’s programs to combat climate change, including through investments in adaptation and resilience, renewable energy, and sustainable landscapes.
  • Builds on USAID’s comparative advantage when implementing climate change programming by leveraging relationships at the local level and supporting partner countries’ ability to achieve their Nationally Determined Contributions and implement National Adaptation Plans and priorities.
  • Generates creative solutions to encourage policy innovation and strengthen partner country capacity to accelerate breakthroughs in technologies and practices that promote climate resilience, carbon capture and storage, advanced energy systems, and maximize resource efficiency.
  • Expands climate change adaptation programming and policy leadership for USAID globally, including access to weather and climate information, science and analysis for improved decision-making.”

On the surface, what could possibly be wrong with the Biden-Harris Administration’s Request to tax the average American family for U.S. Aid to be spent abroad?

FIRST, The President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Budget Request for the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is $58.5 billion. That is FIFTY-EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS of your tax money spent overseas on Marxists planned, directed and initiated goals. Goals that are designed to complete, establish and entrench a One World Governing Body which will absorb the sovereignty of the United States of America.

SECONDLY – If you doubt that the U.S. Government, our government, has jumped on board with the One World Marxist Government push, just compare the United Nations pictorial of Agenda 2030 and the U.S. pictorial of the same (I have hyper-linked the images to the websites):

United States Sustainable Development Goals:

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

The foregoing are the goals of the Globalist-Marxists, which will give them complete authority over everything that affects and concerns you, from cradle to grave.

THIRDLY – Please note, from the image below here, the Biden administration 2022 U.S. budget proposals which total Six Trillion dollars. This, of course, is a back-breaker for the U.S. Citizen who works for and earns a living. YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS IN TAX INCREASES. But, the long-term goal of budgets like this is to collapse the U.S. economy and bankrupt the Treasury, which will create the crisis needed to weaken the U.S. sufficiently in order to move her into a One World Confederation.

It takes a patient and careful reading of the budgetary goals to realize that each department and has been equipped and directed to re-educate, retrain and indoctrinate our children in the ways of Marxist thought and doctrines, (Critical Race Theory, Socialist economic theory, Marxist ideologies, etc.), through the U.S. Department of Education and our citizenry through social engineering and social programs.

Biden Whitehouse 2022 Budget.gov

THIRDLY – If you are doubting these assertions and claims, then please read these page links and the associated documents, taken directly from United Nations websites and U.S. Government sites:

Agenda-21, cover for the United Nation’s One World Government

Globalism and the Tower of Babel

FINALLY – There is a lot to be read about the World Economic Forum, (WEC), a United Nations Strategic Partner organization in implementing the Agenda 2030. I will reveal more about this sinister alliance and their Global goals and methods in my next edition.

MORE:  Here is a link to a website, “The Wine Press” which as gone into some greater detail. It is interesting and informative. It also features a short video from the World Economic Forum (part of the Agenda 2030 family of Marxists) you should glimpse.

SHIPWRECKED – Enemies Within the Church

SHIPWRECKED?

And, what is “Big Eva”?

Before I introduce my main point, I want to point out, that it was common for Jesus and His Apostles to deal with false teachers and false prophets within the Church.  Here are some links for your study:

FALSE PROPHETS WITHIN THE CHURCH- Biblegateway.com

HYPOCRITES WITHIN THE CHURCH – Biblegateway.com

FALSE TEACHERS WITHIN THE CHURCH – Biblegateway.com

SOUND DOCTRINE – Biblegateway.com

We are hearing about and reading about so many being SHIPWRECKED with regard to their faith. What is this world is going on? And how is this happening?

SHIPWRECKED – a noun

  • The destruction or loss of a ship, as by sinking.
  • The remains of a wrecked ship.
  • Destruction or ruin: the shipwreck of one’s hopes.

Verb (used with object)

  • To cause suffering in shipwreck.
  • To destroy; ruin.

I want to start with

Here is a video presented by E.W.T.C., (Enemies Within The Church), which sound the ‘shofar’, warning about the Woke movement invading the Church.  This includes the Globalist-Marxists ideologies and practices, the secularism of the ‘Social Gospel’ , the shaming of ‘white Americans’, the promoting and glorifying of the Marxists led, ‘Black Lives Matter’, and more.

Just in the small area where I live, in the past few years, there have been and are, at least 3 major Christian SHIPWRECKS on public display.  I will point out on one, but, here is a link to others:  CHURCH SHIPWRECKS IN NAPLES, FL

First Baptist Church, Naples: Crisis

These videos are produced by http://www.EnemiesWithinTheChurch.com

“Conservative church members labeled racists, purged by elite Southern Baptists” (Capstone Report)

“F.B.C. Naples leadership sinfully violated Matthew 18, smeared church members concerned about pastoral candidate’s support for pro-abortion, pro-LGBTQ Democrat” (Capstone Report)

“Report: Coup forced out longtime pastor who wanted period of transition to new leadership” (Capstone Report)

Neo-Marxists turn Stalinist after election defeat (Capstone Report)

Now, finally, what about Big Eva?

Big Eva” is not a large German who works in border control for the Bundesrepublik.  Big Eva is a term for the network of large evangelical organizations and conferences that seeks to shape the thinking and strategy of the American evangelical churches. (“Big Eva” = “Big Evangelical Churches, organizations and conferences”)

“What Big Eva has done is, create an economy of power, people, and indeed money which is non-ecclesiastical but highly influential within evangelical churches. It is a populist movement of tremendous influence and minimal accountability. It provides an identity for its most passionate acolytes.

“And because it promises rewards to individuals and organizations – influence, students, platform – it is both very hard to criticize and functionally unaccountable to any but its own. The Trinity controversy of two years ago was a case in point: no church creed had ever taught the nonsense that had become so pervasive in evangelicalism. Quite the contrary – the creedal history of the church was arguably constructed to exclude precisely the kind of views that were being espoused. But key conferences and key organizations had a vested interest in sidestepping orthodoxy and demonizing any who pointed that out.

“An aspiring movement, to direct and shape the policies and testimony of the church, is quite another thing.

This is advice to all Christians.  Let’s heed the words of the Apostle Paul and stay vigilant and “fight the good fight”, and God will be with us.

CRITICAL RACE THEORY SIMPLIFIED

The pundits of Critical Race Theory (CRT) will tell you (in unison) that “the Critical race theory is an academic movement made up of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race, and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice.”

The Encyclopedia Britannica says, Critical race theory (CRT), is an intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”

The American Bar Association allowed an article on the principles of Critical Race Theory, written by liberal civil rights attorney and adjunct associate professor, Janel George,  who teaches a course on racial injustice in K–12 public education through a Critical Race Theory (CRT) framework.

However, the material and principles contained in that paper should not be construed as the position of the ABA House of Delegates or the CRSJ Council has adopted it.

Here is a link to the “American Bar Association web page”

Are you confused,  yet?  Tired of reading?

SIMPLIFY, PLEASE?

Reading about CRT is a never ending task.  Understanding what you read is  even more (unnecessarily) difficult.  I believe the interminable defining of CRT is intended to discourage the reader and cause him or her to throw up their hands and say, “Oh well.  Whatever!”  But, we cannot do that.  We cannot give in.  We must understand what is happening and learn to fight back!

SIMPLIFIED

Critical Race Theory says that racism is embedded in every institution in America.  And, that everyone who is not “a person of color” (Black) has been taught to be racist and needs to be retrained in their thinking or eliminated (cancelled or removed).

NOTE:  Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a deeply rooted in the Marxist doctrine of “Critical Theory”.  It has been borrowed and cultivated by modern Marxists to say “If you are not ‘black’ or some other ‘minority skin color’, you are racist, and you need to be retrained or eliminated.”

The message that “anyone who does not believe in systemic racism is part of the problem” and that message, is sadly, permeating all the literature on race in America today, our school systems, the courts and our churches.

These ideas of oppression and systemic racism come from a Marxist doctrine called “critical theory.”

It is important to note that Marxism is the theory and Communism is the practical implementation of Marxism.  Communism has never worked as advertised.  It is an inhumane, murderous scheme to enrich a few at the cost of hundreds of millions of lives.

Examples of the viral spread of this lie can be found in Buffalo, New York, the school district’s “Emancipation Curriculum” told children that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism.”

Another example is at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, a Smithsonian institution funded by taxpayers.  Officials released a document last year intended for use in schools that claimed ideas such as “hard work is the key to success” and that trying to “be polite” are evidence of an oppressive society.

Contemporary Marxists claim that Karl Marx “was well aware of the centrality of race under capitalism”.  Even though Marx never wrote on the question of slavery and its racial impact in societies, he did write about America from his own egocentric and psychopathic point of view:

According to Marx: “The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of Black skins, signalized the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.”

Although Marx never personally witnessed anything of what he wrote about regarding America, he found it expedient to ‘fill in his necessary blanks to make his points.  He wrote:

“Direct slavery is just as much the pivot of bourgeois industry as machinery, credits, etc. Without slavery, you have no cotton; without cotton, you have no modern industry. It is slavery that has given the colonies their value; it is the colonies that have created world trade, and it is world trade that is the pre-condition of large-scale industry. Thus, slavery is an economic category of the greatest importance.

“Without slavery, North America, the most progressive of countries, would be transformed into a patriarchal country. Wipe out North America from the map of the world, and you will have anarchy–the complete decay of modern commerce and civilization. Cause slavery to disappear, and you will have wiped America off the map of nations. Thus, slavery, because it is an economic category, has always existed among the institutions of the peoples. Modern nations have been able only to disguise slavery in their own countries, but they have imposed it without disguise upon the New World.”

Thus, Marx proposed a fundamentally flawed and a gross misunderstanding of the centrality of slave labor in the national and international economy.

But what about race?  Marx never addressed race. Let me repeat:  Karl Marx never addressed race.  His supporters and adherents state unequivocally that Marx addressed race, but with the implied disclaimer, “What Marx meant to say” – even though he never said it.  And, for a man to write as prolifically as Marx, to never have mentioned a matter simply means it was not relevant in his thinking.

So, using the fundamental tenant of the Critical Race Theory, KARL MARX WAS PROFOUNDLY RACIST, himself.  In fact, Marx used the ‘underprivileged’, the ‘oppressed masses’ for his own ends from the beginning.

Is CRT (Critical Race Theory), rooted in Marxism?  Yes. Absolutely.  But, it is nothing more than another fabrication of The Beast and the Dragon of the Bible, this thinly veiled “New Marxism” has come only to steal, kill and destroy!.

An article by Christopher F. Rufo, founder and director of Battlefront, A public policy research center, explains Critical Race Theory, its dangers and how to fight it. You can read this article by clicking this link.

It is a good article, and gives us an idea of how to respond, how to fight the manifest evil known as “CRT”.  But, it also falls short of giving us a grassroots remedy.  None of us can muster up a “PhD Quality dissertation” to fight with.  We need a simple and powerful method. I have listed some links to additional articles which will help can you find methods that will work.

Let me conclude this very brief introduction to CRT by saying, Critical Race Theory is a Marxist battle plan to overthrow the American system of government, and our way of life.  Marxism’s goal is to subjugate every man woman and child under ‘state control’, to eliminate the right standards of living according to the Bible, and to vanquish God from His Throne.

It is time to get serious.  Find groups in your area who are fighting this battle.  Also, consider supporting a frontline legal team, such as Alliance Defending Freedom, and ADF Church Alliance who are busy engaging this enemy.

The Critical Race Theory (CRT) EXPOSED

The Political Left, which includes, among others, Socialists, Marxists-Communists, Progressives, One-World-Government advocates, the UN, (UNESCO), Agenda-21, Black Lives Matter, etc., have made a practice of denying their failures and deflecting blame onto those who don’t agree with Leftist ideology.  So, true to form, these same Leftists have successfully concocted an outrageous lie call the “Critical race theory”.

The Left describes the “Critical race theory (CRT)”, as an intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.” (Source: The Encyclopedia Britannica)

THE SIMPLE TRUTH

There seems to be some truth to the “Critical Race Theory”, in that, it claims to be “an intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category”.

Calling it an ‘intellectual movement’ is probably a stretch of meaning of the word, ‘intellectual’.  Although, there are some who consider themselves as ‘intellectual’ within the movement.

There is some truth that ‘racism may be a socially constructed and a culturally invented category’, but it was NOT, and I repeat, was NOT an invention to oppress and exploit people of color.  Racism is the result of a myriad of social and cultural phenomina colliding in a mixed environment of greed, fear, ignorance, poverty and evil opportunism.

Before going further, I want to point out that statements or ideologies which possess ‘some truth’ means there are also ‘some lies’ contained ;therin.  And, even half-a-truth is still a nothing but a lie.

The lies of CRT and those who perpetrate those lies are reminiscent of an account from the Book of Genesis in the Bible.  In this account, Satan says to Eve, Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”   Whereupon, Eve challenged Satan’s half-truth, saying, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 

Satan continued to challenge Eve with half truths until Eve believed the lies and consumed the forbidden fruit.  Consequently, Adam and Eve, and all their descendants, became prisoners to the curse of sin and death.  Even fifty-percent truth is still a lie.

It is true that some have been oppressed by racism?  Yes, some. But, not all. Proponents of The Critical Race Theory, (also known as CRT), would have you believe that, not some, but, ALL black people have been oppressed by racism. both then and now.  But, that is just a blatant lie.

There were, and are some opportunists who, by their own evil actions, and actions by the ignorant, fearful and the selfish among us, who would and have deliberately oppressed minority races for political advantage, economic gain or simply out of hatred.  But, there are many good people who fought against the evils of slavery and racism, as well.

Racism has never been “an invention to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”  To say that was the case, is to ignore the fact of over 140 years of developing American society and history.

It is true that Africans were kidnapped, brought to America and forced into slavery, and their conditions ranged from horrendous to unfair.  Slavery was evil and, over time, was abolished by the very people being catagorized as ‘racist’ by the Left.  What followed the abolition of slavery, has been a long period of adjustment and correction.

Slavery and racism, in the 1800’s, was new to America but it was nothing new to the world.  Racism and slavery have been around since recorded time.  Slavery in Muslim countries, for example, began as early as 610 BC and still exists in parts of the Muslim world today. (source:  The Geller Report) But, those facts don’t fit the narrative and goals of Marxism and the CRT.

In America, however, the resentment, ignorance, selfishness from racism were actually the seeds of abolition of slavery in America, which, incidentally, influenced the rest of the world to follow our example.

The long and difficult phenomenon of racial assimilation in America began to slowly evolve beginning around 1860.  The task of racial reconciliation seems to have begun in earnest in the 1960’s and continues until this day.  It has been a complex and painful process and this is not the forum for a detailed study.  So, I will say that unless you lived in America over the last 75 years, it is unlikely you can relate to the frustratingly slow process of reconciliation, with all it myriad social, political, cultural, economic and religious facets.

Has there been cultural, social, economic and political exploitation of minority groups?  Yes.  But, that is the part of the struggle which has fueled racial assimilation of our society and long and arduous task of reconciliation.  And, there has been progress and success in balancing the scales of opportunity and equality.

THE FERTILE SOIL

The American systems of capitalism, free enterprise, free markets, entrepreneurship and the freedoms to pursue life, liberty and happiness as codified in our Declaration of Independence, produces a competition which requires a certain level of excellence.

Simply put, most of the “poor and huddled masses” arriving in America, whether by immigration or by slavery were not equipped or prepared for the American System.  But, they had landed on the American Soil which was fertile with potential, and offers the opportunity to train yourself and prepare to compete.

Have minorities races treated unfairly?  Yes, many times.  And, if you were among the minorities, you would probably have said, “yes, all the times”.  Nonetheless, many people of minority race found freedom and opportunity in America, and this helps explain the continuing explosion of immigration to America, from all parts of the world, by all races, to this day.

There is now, however, a “New Cry of Discrimination”, which has nothing to do with the civil rights movement, slavery or racism.  This “New Cry of Discrimination” has been extended from racial discrimination to any and every imaginable source which will suite the agenda of the new Marxist and aid them in their evil notion of world conquest.

It is important to acknowledge that Marxism is the antithesis to Capitalism and the sworn enemy of Christianity and the Judeo-Christian ethos.

Secondly, it is also important to acknowledge the goal of Marxism, found in “The Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto”, 1848, by Karl Heinrich Marx.

Although Marx advocated the use of any means, especially including violent revolution, to bring about his socialist global dictatorship, he suggested ten political goals for developed countries such as the United States.  How far has the United States — traditionally the bastion of freedom, free markets, and private property — gone down the Marxist road to fulfill these socialist aims?  You be the judge.

The following are Marx’s ten planks from his Communist Manifesto, in RED text; and each plank followed by a notation of America’s gradual fall into the grips of this murderous evil.

  1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

The courts have interpreted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868) to give the government far more “eminent domain” power than was originally intended, Under the rubric of “eminent domain” and various zoning regulations, land use regulations by the Bureau of Land Management property taxes, and “environmental” excuses, private property rights have become very diluted and private property in land is, vehicles, and other forms are seized almost every day in this country under the “forfeiture” provisions of the RICO statutes and the so-called War on Drugs..

  1. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

The 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913 (which some scholars maintain was never properly ratified), and various State income taxes, established this major Marxist coup in the United States many decades ago.  These taxes continue to drain the lifeblood out of the American economy and greatly reduce the accumulation of desperately needed capital for future growth, business starts, job creation, and salary increases.

  1. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

Another Marxian attack on private property rights is in the form of  Federal & State estate taxes and other inheritance taxes, which have abolished or at least greatly diluted the right of private property owners to determine the disposition and distribution of their estates upon their death.  Instead, government bureaucrats get their greedy hands involved .

  1. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

We call it government seizures, tax liens, “forfeiture” Public “law” 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of “terrorists” and those who speak out or write against the “government” (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

  1. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

The Federal Reserve System, created by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, is indeed such a “national bank” and it politically manipulates interest rates and holds a monopoly on legal counterfeiting in the United States.   This is exactly what Marx had in mind and completely fulfills this plank, another major socialist objective.   Yet, most Americans naively believe the U.S. of A. is far from a Marxist or socialist nation.

  1. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

In the U.S., communication and transportation are controlled and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established by the Communications Act of 1934 and the Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission (established by Congress in 1887), and the Federal Aviation Administration as well as Executive orders 11490, 10999 — not to mention various state bureaucracies and regulations. There is also the federal postal monopoly, AMTRAK and CONRAIL — outright socialist (government-owned) enterprises.   Instead of free-market private enteprrise in these important industries, these fields in America are semi-cartelized through the government’s regulatory-industiral complex.

  1. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

While the U.S. does not have vast “collective farms” (which failed so miserably in the Soviet Union), we nevertheless do have a significant degree of government involvement in agriculture in the form of price support subsidies and acreage alotments and land-use controls.   The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

  1. Equal obligation of all to work.  Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two “income” family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. And I almost forgot…The Equal Rights Amendment means that women should do all work that men do including the military and since passage it would make women subject to the draft.

  1. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

We call it the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public “law” 89-136.

  1. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

People are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education” .

Very few Americans today challenge the establishment of Marxist institutions, and there are virtually no politicians calling for their repeal or even gradual phase-out.    While the United States of America may still have more freedoms than most countries, we have lost many crucial liberties and are seeing our remaining freedoms eroded, almost daily. Our nation, whose founders included such individualists as Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison, John Adams and Patrick Henry, has gradually turned away from the principles of individual rights, limited constitutional government, private property, and free markets and instead we increasingly have embraced the failed ideas and nostrums of socialism and fascism.

But, it is not too late to reverse these burdens and win our nation back, but it will require each of us to make the necessary sacrifices and to do our part.

The enemies of America control most the entertainment industry, news media, and education — but we have the tremendous strategic advantage that the Truth is on our side.

John Adams correctly observed, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  Our nation must return to the roots of belief in God through faith in Jesus Christ and to practice those accompanying principles, if we are to recapture the freedoms and the independence of our past.

We can, and must, win this battle.  There are good men and women geared up for the fight, but they cannot do it alone.  You and I must make our sacrifices and join them at the battlefront.

Mike Young

A TUTORIAL ON EFFECTIVE SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Teaching, Training & Commissioning

Chapter  12  Episode  5

REMOVING THE OBSTACLE OF REVENGE

Jesus said, “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men”.  Jesus was literally saying, “I will fashion you, make you into, craft you into, Fishers of men”.  These men would come to be known as His disciples.  Jesus taught on, preached and demonstrated what He was fashioning as disciples.

These, and the future men and women who would become His disciples, would do the works that Jesus had done, and “greater works”, because Jesus had gone to the Father.  Jesus told them, as His disciples, they would inherit the Kingdom of God.

However, Satan has laid traps to entice you and to snare you in order to prevent you from completing your mission. The only safe path, is to follow Jesus, very closely.

Jesus made it clear that if you choose to follow Him, you will have to pay the price of a disciple, and that cost is high.  Both the religious and secular worlds persecuted Jesus and His followers because of His teachings.  And, they will persecute you, too, if you choose to be His disciple.

Jesus came to show us the way to Life, and He warned that the gate is small and the way that leads to life is both narrow and difficult, and there are few who find it.

These next episodes will lead you to the “small gate which is narrow” and we will continue to identify the obstacles to our transformation for their removal from your life.

(For our convenience, I have coded the Obstacle in green, the penalty in purple and the Remedy in Blue.)

Episode 5:  Removing the Obstacle of Revenge requires practicing Non-resistance

Matthew 5:38-42 says, You have heard that it was said, ‘AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.’ 

But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. “If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. “Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. “Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.”

“Entitlement”, lust and vengeance are snares of Satan. He convinces a person that they are entitled to ‘their fair share’ in life, and they should receive respect, fair treatment and justice. And when we are denied our ‘fair share’ to which we are entitled, we lust and seek revenge – and this is the trap.

But, God says none of us are entitled. And, none of us are righteous – no, not even one of us – we all have sinned and fall short of His Glory.

Each one of us have been tempted when we were carried away and enticed by our own lusts, and, when lust was conceived, it gave birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. We are entitled to death.

It is only because Jesus has borne our sins and by His completed work on the Cross, are we set free from the snares of death.  And, we are entitled – not to take, but to give – respect, fair treatment, justice, honesty and kindness to others.

Again, a teaching of Jesus seems counter-intuitive and can test the soul of even the most dedicate man or woman.  It is difficult to understand – unless you are willing.

At first glance, this teaching sounds as if a disciple of Jesus is to stand idly by while an evil person slaps you about and perpetrates all kinds of evil against you and in your presence.  But, what Jesus is telling us is, not to entangle yourselves in the affairs of evil men, even when they cast their evil upon us.  Instead, stay focused on Jesus’ Mission while actively responding to evil, by overcoming evil with good.

Secondly, God’s Word and methods are an intricate balance of mercy and justice, something we rarely see anymore.  Once you have “paid the debt” of forgiveness and kindness, do not linger.  If an evil person continues in his or her evil ways, “Shake the dust off your sandals”, so to speak, and move on. Do not fall for the snare of entangling yourself in vengeance.

James 4:7-8, teaches this principal and its practice when he says,  Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

If you are drawn into this trap and snared by it, you are no longer free to follow Jesus because of the things that so easily entangle us.  Do not fall of the bait of Satan.

Galatians 5 :1 tells us that, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”

CRITICAL RACE THEORY – The Threat

The pundits of Critical Race Theory (CRT) will tell you, (in unison), that “the Critical race theory is an academic movement made up of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race, and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice.”

The Encyclopedia Britannica says, Critical race theory (CRT), an intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”

The American Bar Association, in an article written to and for attorneys, says “CRT is not a diversity and inclusion “training” but a practice of interrogating the role of race and racism in society that emerged in the legal academy and spread to other fields of scholarship. Crenshaw—who coined the term “CRT”—notes that CRT is not a noun, but a verb. (read this entire article at this link).

Confused?  Tired of reading?

SIMPLIFY, PLEASE?

Reading about CRT is a never ending task.  Understanding what you read is  even more (unnecessarily) difficult.  I believe the interminable defining of CRT is intended to discourage the reader and cause him or her to throw up their hands and say, “Oh well.  Whatever!”  But, we cannot do that.  We cannot give in.  We must understand what is happening and learn to fight back!

SIMPLIFIED

Critical Race Theory, which is deeply rooted in the Marxist doctrine of ‘Critical Theory’, says that racism is embedded in every institution in America.  And, that everyone who is not “a person of color” (Black) has been taught to be racist and needs to be retrained in their thinking or eliminated (cancelled or removed).

Marxism, while hiding under the guise of ‘social justice’ or ‘racial justice’, has the goal is to subjugate every man woman and child under ‘state control’, eliminate the right standards of living according to the Bible, and to vanquish God from His Throne.”

NOTE:  Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a deeply rooted in the Marxist doctrine of “Critical Theory”.  It has been borrowed and cultivated by modern Marxists to say “If you are not ‘black’ or some other ‘minority skin color’, you are racist, and you need to be retrained or eliminated.”

The message that “anyone who does not believe in systemic racism is part of the problem” and that message, is sadly, permeating all the literature on race in America today, our school systems, the courts and our churches.

These ideas of oppression and systemic racism come from a Marxist doctrine called “critical theory.”

It is important to note that Marxism is the theory and Communism is the practical implementation of Marxism.  Communism has never worked as advertised.  It is an inhumane, murderous scheme to enrich a few at the cost of hundreds of millions of lives.

Examples of the viral spread of this lie can be found in Buffalo, New York, the school district’s “Emancipation Curriculum” told children that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism.”

Another example is at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, a Smithsonian institution funded by taxpayers.  Officials released a document last year intended for use in schools that claimed ideas such as “hard work is the key to success” and that trying to “be polite” are evidence of an oppressive society.

Contemporary Marxists claim that Karl Marx “was well aware of the centrality of race under capitalism”.  Even though Marx never wrote on the question of slavery and its racial impact in societies, he did write about America from his own egocentric and psychopathic point of view:

According to Marx: “The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of Black skins, signalized the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.”

Although Marx never personally witnessed anything of what he wrote about regarding America, he found it expedient to ‘fill in his necessary blanks to make his points.  He wrote:

“Direct slavery is just as much the pivot of bourgeois industry as machinery, credits, etc. Without slavery, you have no cotton; without cotton, you have no modern industry. It is slavery that has given the colonies their value; it is the colonies that have created world trade, and it is world trade that is the pre-condition of large-scale industry. Thus, slavery is an economic category of the greatest importance.

“Without slavery, North America, the most progressive of countries, would be transformed into a patriarchal country. Wipe out North America from the map of the world, and you will have anarchy–the complete decay of modern commerce and civilization. Cause slavery to disappear, and you will have wiped America off the map of nations. Thus, slavery, because it is an economic category, has always existed among the institutions of the peoples. Modern nations have been able only to disguise slavery in their own countries, but they have imposed it without disguise upon the New World.”

Thus, Marx proposed a fundamentally flawed and a gross misunderstanding of the centrality of slave labor in the national and international economy.

But what about race?  Marx never addressed race. Let me repeat:  Karl Marx never addressed race.  His supporters and adherents state unequivocally that Marx addressed race, but with the implied disclaimer, “What Marx meant to say” – even though he never said it.  And, for a man to write as prolifically as Marx, to never have mentioned a matter simply means it was not relevant in his thinking.

KARL MARX WAS PROFOUNDLY RACIST in his advocacy of the fundamental tenants of Critical Race Theory.  In fact, Marx used the ‘underprivileged’, the ‘oppressed masses’ for his own ends from the beginning.

In practical terms, CRT is being WOKE.

Merriam-Webster added the word to its dictionary in 2017, defining WOKE as, “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice).” The Oxford dictionary adopted it the same year, defining it as “originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice.”

WOKE is a slang term that is easing into the mainstream from some varieties of a dialect called African American Vernacular English (sometimes called AAVE),” according to Merriam-Webster. “In AAVE, awake is often rendered as woke, as in, ‘I was sleeping, but now I’m woke.’”

WOKE, in my studied opinion is, besides being very bad grammar, is a spreading twisted narcissistic pathology.  It says, that ‘I had a hard time growing up’.  Most likely you were treated unfairly, perhaps abused in some fashion, and/or denigrated, marginalized, criticized, demonized and cast aside. You felt unloved and mistreated, and you probably were, to some degree, great or small.

Now you are AWAKE to the facts of your hardships and the injustices you suffered, and you are going to get even. You are going to get what you are owed – whatever you decide that might be.

You are going to make others pay. It doesn’t matter that maybe only a few people are responsible for your mistreatment. It doesn’t matter that it was a very long time ago and that most of ‘those people’ are now dead. In your WOKE state of mind, EVERYONE has to pay, now that you are WOKE.

This is what is being passed of as Critical Race Theory the movement for Reparations for Black Americans. This narcissistic pathology has seeped, or has been force-fed into the thinking of many everyday Americans. Worse yet, our school children are being indoctrinated, they are having their minds poisoned, by this HATE THOUGHT, and it is in part thanks to the efforts of co-conspirators, the National Teachers Association and Union.

Americans who are just doing their best to be good people by being honest, fair, just, hardworking, kind, generous and faithful are being both unfairly punished and indoctrinated with this Marxists Hate Doctrine by the enemies of our educational systems and of our government.

CRT (Critical Race Theory) is rooted in Marxism.  But, it is nothing more than another fabrication of The Beast and the Dragon of the Bible, this thinly veiled “New Marxism” has come only to steal, kill and destroy!.

An article by Christopher F. Rufo, founder and director of Battlefront, A public policy research center, explains Critical Race Theory, its dangers and how to fight it. You can read this article by clicking this link.

It is a good article, and gives us an idea of how to respond, how to fight the manifest evil known as “CRT”.  But, it also falls short of giving us a grassroots remedy.  None of us can muster up a “PhD Quality dissertation” to fight with.  We need a simple and powerful method. I have listed some links to additional articles which will help can you find methods that will work.

Let me conclude this very brief introduction to CRT by saying, Critical Race Theory is a Marxist battle plan to divide, subvert and to overthrow the American system of government, and our way of life.  Marxism’s goal is to subjugate every man woman and child under ‘state control’, to eliminate the right standards of living according to the Bible, and to vanquish God from His Throne.

It is time to get serious.  Find groups in your area who are fighting this battle.  Also, consider supporting a frontline legal team, such as Alliance Defending Freedom, and ADF Church Alliance who are busy engaging this enemy.

A TUTORIAL ON EFFECTIVE SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Teaching, Training & Commissioning

Chapter  12  Episode  3

REMOVING THE OBSTACLE OF DIVORCE

Commitment to the Covenant

We are told by the Holy Spirit in Romans 12:2 that, as disciples of Jesus, you are not to be conformed to this world, but you are to be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is:  that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

There are obstacles to (1) being transformed into a Child of God and (2) becoming a disciple of Jesus (3) entering the Kingdom of Heaven, now, and (4) walking in the power of His Spirit.  Galatians 5:19-21 tells us of these obstacles and that those who practice these things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

These next episodes will continue to identify these obstacles and remedies for their removal from your life.

Divorce and remarriage is a common error committed by people calling themselves “Christian”, who want the benefits of but reject the requirements of becoming a Christian as they are often overcome by fleshly or emotional desires.

(For our convenience, I have coded the Obstacle in green, the penalty in purple and the Remedy in Blue.)

Episode 3:  Removing the Obstacle of Divorce requires cooperation and commitment to the covenant of marriage.

 Matthew 5:31-32 says “WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE’;

but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of un-chastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Jesus, first, gives us an understanding of divorce in Matthew 19:3-6 and then the remedy for divorce in Ephesians 5:21-24:

Jesus explains, in Matthew 19:3-6, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH’?

 “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

Imagine having your arm our your leg amputated.  Can you imagine the pain and the loss?  Literally losing part of yourself would impact and affect your body, your mind, your soul and your spirit.  Please dear ones, do not deliberately wound yourself and others.

The remedy to divorce is found in Ephesians 5:21-24.  

Ephesians 5:”21-24 says “be subject to one another in the fear of Christ. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.”

The word Greek word for “to be subject to” or “submit to” is “Hupotasso”, which literally means:

  1. To arrange under, to subordinate;
  2. To subject, put in subjection
  3. To subject one’s self, obey
  4. To submit to one’s control
  5. To yield to one’s admonition or advice
  6. To obey, be subject.
  7. To mutually agree upon

HUPO – arrange under; TASSO – mutually agree upon

The intention of “submission or subjection” is found in the CONTEXT of the words in this chapter of Ephesians which encourages us to be wise and moral, kind and pure, gentle and forgiving.

The context is also found in the meaning of the words in these verses.

Specifically, “Hupotasso” comes from a Greek military term meaning “to arrange [troop divisions] in a military fashion under the command of a leader”.

These troop formations were called a Phalanx. The Phalanx was the formation, usually in triangular form, in which The hoplite phalanx of the Archaic and Classical periods in Greece (c. 800–350 BC) was the formation in which the hoplites would line up in ranks in close order.

Hoplites were citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greek city-states who were primarily armed with spears and shields. Hoplite soldiers utilized the phalanx formation in order to be effective in war with fewer soldiers. The formation discouraged the soldiers from acting alone, for this would compromise the formation and minimize its strengths

The hoplites would lock their shields together, and the first few ranks of soldiers would project their spears out over the first rank of shields.

Those at the front were, what we would call today, THE TIP OF THE SPEAR or the POINT MAN. They presented the first defense against the enemy and were the first to engage the enemy and the first to take casualties.

The phalanx therefore presented a shield wall and a mass of spear points to the enemy. Making frontal assaults against it very difficult.

It also allowed a higher proportion of the soldiers to be actively engaged in combat at a given time, rather than just those in the front rank.

This word, “Hupotasso”, in non-military use, is “a voluntary attitude of giving in, cooperating, assuming responsibility, and carrying a burden”.

The Bible gives this as an example for husbands and wives to cooperate and to successfully navigate life and in waging wars against ‘their common enemy’, Satan.

The wife is fully engaged in the marriage relationship, but, God says the husband is to be the Tip of the Spear in order to protect and preserve and, if necessary, the first to fall.

Interestingly, Ephesians 5:22, contains the phrase, “be subject to your own”, which include the word Greek word, “idios”, and means, “uniquely one’s own, peculiar to the individual”.  “Idios” is a stronger word than the simple possessive pronoun, ‘own’.  This emphatic adjective means ‘private and personal’ “.

In other words, God gives each husband a wife, designed by God, Himself, to fulfill a role specifically for that husband. God gives the wife gifts, talents, abilities and a calling uniquely designed to serve God and to compliment and to complete the husband.

This is why the Bible says “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

“So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself”.

It is also why God says, “Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.”

Neither, the husband nor the wife, can be made complete as persons, finding refuge, protection and provision as provided by God;  neither can they mature and sustain one another, until they understand this Spiritual principal and follow it.

Marriage has mutual strength through commitment and cooperation with one another under God’s Steady Hand.

Please take this to heart, dear ones. This message is so important.

The world and the Devil are deceiving the family in to thinking ‘what works for you is OK”. It is NOT OK. God’s design, His plan and His Word is what gives life, and life more abundant. Stop following the world and REASON through God’s Word. Understand it and live!

Your Brother and Friend,

EFFECTIVE SPIRITUAL WARFARE – Ch. 12, Ep. 2 – Removing the Obstacle of Lust

A TUTORIAL ON EFFECTIVE SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Teaching, Training & Commissioning

Chapter  12   Episode  2

REMOVING THE OBSTACLE OF LUST

We are told by the Bible, in Romans 12:2 that, as disciples of Jesus, you are not to be conformed to this world, but you are to be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is: that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

There are obstacles to being transformed into a Child of God and becoming a disciple of Jesus and entering the Kingdom of Heaven.  Galatians 5:19-21 tells us of these obstacles and that those who practice these things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

For our convenience, I have coded the Obstacle in green, the penalty in purple and the Remedy in Blue.

Episode 2:  Removing the Obstacle of anger requires Reconciliation

  Matthew 5:27 says You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 

“If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; 

for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; 

for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.”

God considers lust an offense worthy of death. Leviticus 20:10 says “If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.”

Jesus uses an extreme figure of speech when He says to pluck out your eye or to cut off your hand in order to illustrate the serious consequential reality of lust, “your whole body will go to hell”.

  1. Lust is destructive. Proverbs 6:32 says “The one who commits adultery with a woman is
    lacking sense; He who would destroy himself does it.”
  2. Lust is a sin that spreads like a virus. Matthew 5:32 says “but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of un-chastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
  3. Lust is powerfully seductive and fatally addictive.

James 1:14-15 says, “But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.”

  1. Lust leads to corruption of the soul, debauchery and a reprobate mind.

James 4:2 says, “You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel.

A true disciple, a true Christian, must avoid lust at all costs. But, when we find ourselves caught in the vortex of strong delusions and web of sin, we must start by admitting it and begin the long and difficult journey back to freedom and ridding ourselves of this obstacle.

1 John 1:8-9 says , “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

God will set you free and strengthen you, and He will reward you.  But, as we have already seen, the cost of discipleship is high and the process of sanctification is difficult.  His reward is more than just worth the cost; it is everything.

And, be encouraged! God will perform His Word in your life!  And, you can know and do the Will of God!
