WHERE ARE THE GRASSROOTS IN AMERICA?

(You can listen while you read along using this audio podcast, and, stop the audio to follow page links, then, resume the audio, when you are ready.  Please note, I use page links in lieu of footnotes and references for important details.)

(This is a long read with multiple links to read.  It will take time, but it can be worth your time if you will take action at the end)

When one looks at the current political climate and conditions in Washington, DC, many people ask, “How did this happen and how long has this been going on?”

Rumor has it that a majority of Americans are saying, both privately and publicly that a near-senile, pathological liar is now president, (the year of this writing is 2021), and an adulteress and fraudster is now vice-president.  They also say president’s cabinet is full of decadent degenerates, perverts, communists and socialists, and that over half the electorate is whispering that the democrat party is in favor of anything and everything anti-Christian, anti-conservative and anti-traditional American.  (Not a good view of our government nor of our future.)

No matter what you believe about these things, you have to admit, times are changing .  Many people, in American and around the world, feel America is in a steep decline.

I will attempt to give a very abbreviated and non-academic review and  a progressive timeline of some contributing factors and defining moments of the decline of America and her gradual absorption into the developing One World Globalist Government.  I will also offer a “developing plan of action” if you care fight back.

(I also must add, that if you care about America and your family you will have to DO SOMETHING besides pointing out our problems and complaining.  If you decide to engage, you would at least be able to say, “I tried”.)

WHAT IS GLOBALISM?

Publications like Wikipedia or “The Economist” confuse the matter of Globalism and the aims of Globalism by asserting there are various kinds of ‘Globalism’. (disassembling the word into component parts and delving into fabricated systems).

Merriam-Webster is close by saying Globalism is “a national policy of treating the whole world as a proper sphere for political influence, similar to imperialism or internationalism”.

Socialists and communists say Globalism is the key to worldwide prosperity. But, the truth is that Globalists say it is a key to worldwide prosperity but they know it is the key to controlling people under the dictatorial rule of godless communism.

THE TIMELINE

1946

“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.

1946 – 1992

A slow, steady march into Socialism / Communism and its variants, leading to a form of One World Government (aka, Globalism), has been promoted and instituted by various US Presidents. 

1861 – Abraham Lincoln:  Our most socialist president ever, by far.  After the civil war, his three biggest achievements were the Homestead Act, the Transcontinental Railroads and the Land Grant Colleges.

1901 – Theodore Roosevelt was simultaneously very pro business and very socialist.  He understood the need for public institutions, creating the National Park system, and boosting anti-monopoly regulation.

1933 – Franklin D Roosevelt: I think most people are aware of the New Deal, the National Relief Agency, the WPA, and Social Security in his achievements.

1963 – Lyndon Johnson skillfully exploited a widely held sense of fairness, and the philosophy of government defined by FDR to push through the programs of the Great Society: expansion of Social Security, creation of Medicare, and the implementation of Civil Rights that FDR and Ike had started.

1969 – Richard Nixon: Our most fervently anti-communist president also instituted wage and price controls, took us off the gold standard, created the EPA, OSHA and several other agencies.

1971

 THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM – WEC 

The World Economic Forum (WEF), based in Cologny, Geneva Canton, Switzerland, is an international NGO, founded on 24 January 1971. The WEF’s mission is stated as “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas”.

The World Economic Forum and its annual meeting in Davos are criticised regarding the public cost of security, the formation of a wealthy global elite without attachment to the broader societies, undemocratic decision processes, gender issues and a lack of financial transparency.

The WEC is a cover for the formation and implementation of a One World Government.

 1992

 AGENDA 21

Agenda 21 initially claimed to be 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. Sustainable Development the U.N.- outcome documents for the Agenda21.

Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.

Although touted as ‘a non-binding resolution’ this UN agency formed The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) 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.

Agenda 21 has now become involved in forty areas ranging from SOCIAL and ECONOMIC DIMENSIONS to poverty, consumption issues, health matters, deforestation, legal instruments and implementation and everything in between.

A link to this document can be found at A Sutainable development U.N. document from the Agenda21.pdf

The United States is a signatory country to Agenda 21. But adherents quickly remind 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 say they say.

1992

However, President GEORGE H.W. BUSH was 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.

1993

Then 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.

The PCSD is composed of leaders from government and industry, as well as from environmental, labor and civil rights organizations.

1996

“OUR GLOBAL NEIGHBORHOOD” – Report of the Commission on Global Governance

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.

NOTE:  *The President’s Council on Sustainable Development was conceived to formulate recommendations for the implementation of Agenda 21 in America.

NOTE:  *In the United States, over 528 cities are members of I.C.L.E.I., an international 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”.  

Agenda-21

HISTORY OF SOCIALISM IN AMERICA

WHAT AMERICAN MUST KNOW ABOUT SOCIALISM

(2001 – George W. Bush collaborated with democrats in congress to implement Agenda 21 socialist policies throughout American cities.)

(2009 – Barrack Obama, a darling of the US Communist party, weakened US sovereignty, pushed for a more socialist health care program 1993.)

2022

Finally, the next World Summit on Sustainable Development will be held on February 16-18, 2022. The Globalists-Marxists now brazenly claim they will have achieved all thier objectives by the year 2032, and The Communnist-Marxist ‘utopia’, will rule the world.

THE DECLINE AND FALL

It has been the objective of Globalists, inside and outside of America, to bring America to her knees by eliminate her sovereignty, emptying her treasuries, destoying her capital based free market economy, corrupting her government and indoctrinating her citizens through her educational institutions and then merging the U.S. into the Globalist-Socialist system by these and other methods.

The foundation of global governance is a set of core values, 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 values and ideas articulated in the Commission’s report are not new. They have been tried, under different names, in other societies. Often, the consequences have been devastating.

These values, under new names, have been emerging in UN documents since the late 1980s, and have dominated international conferences, agreements, and treaties since 1992. This set of core values underlies Agenda 21 adopted in Rio de Janeiro.

Virtually every international treaty and agreement introduced during this decade reflects this set of core values. The Commission’s recommendations to achieve global governance seek to enforce these values through the programs authorized and implemented by a global bureaucracy growing from a revitalized and restructured United Nations system.

At least three competing versions of the Future World Order crashed together in 2018 at the World Economic Forum’s gathering in Davos, Switzerland.

(1)  There was the one version  offered by a combative Donald Trump, calling for a full-scale US retreat from the current world order.

(2)  Another came from Chinese leaders who proposed a new global economic system built around Beijing.

(3)  Meanwhile, Canada’s Justin Trudeau and France’s Emmanuel Macron urged western leaders to double down on the current liberal order.

President Donald Trump and the United States have been he last obstacle to the full takover of Globalists and the implementation of an iron grip of  worldwide socialism.  THIS IS WHY DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN REVILED BY THE LESTISTS, WORLDWIDE.

Once this Globalist movement is declared as complete, a series of events, known as the 5th and 6th Seals of the Great Tribulation will begin, and God will judge the world for its wickedness.

It would be a mistake to dismiss their speeches as empty grandstanding. This debate is deadly serious. The outcomes will likely determine the future of global stability and the security and prosperity of everyone. If the leaders of major countries and international organizations cannot see eye to eye, we are in for a very rough ride. Rather than withdraw, what is needed more than ever are new ideas, institutions and blueprints to navigate the coming storm.

We are living in abnormal times. The global radical Leftist Order is in an advanced state of meltdown. And as the world rapidly shifts from a uni-polar to a multi-polar reality, the international system itself is exposed to profound instability. If the situation is not handled with extreme care, the potential for a major collapse is real. The question is whether our world leaders are capable of fully understanding what is happening in real time and can muster the collective action to set new rules of the road.

WE STILL HAVE A CHOICE – but time is running out

We can either stand by and watch the final steps of this transformation of America or we can fight back.

(1)  You can do nothing.  If you do nothing, you and your children and grandchildren will live under this increasingly oppressive, godless and state-centered One World political system.

(2)  You can fight back.  You can understand what is at stake, join ourselves together and become a force – for freedom and for good.

BATTLE ORDERS:

 1.  READINESS.  This One World Government (Globalism) has been ‘forecasted’ or prophesied in the Bible Knowing that most of Bible prophecies have occurred, a serious minded person knows the few remaining prophecies will occur.  This is underway. You and I must BE READY.

Familiarize yourself with Globalism and the One World Government, here, at Got questions.org – one world government

 Got questions.org – Christian and globalization

 2.  TRAINING.  Submit your life to Jesus as Lord and for Salvation, and He will give you wisdom, strength, courage and knowledge. This is neither a philosophy nor a religious statement.  It is real and profound.  Without it, you cannot prevails in this fight.

 3.  TWO FRONTS:  The Battle we must fight is found on two fronts: (1)  In the unseen world of the Spirit  (2)  In the natural world of our earth.  Everything that is seen, comes from, originates in the unseen world.  We must engage both worlds in the correct order.

The Bible tells us how to enter these 2 worlds when it says  “Repent and enter the Kingdom of God”.  

 Jesus preached and taught extensively on this matter and  said we are to “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17)  

Even if you are a skeptic, you must, please consider that this Kingdom is a very real place.  It is described by way of a  metaphor –  but it is no metaphor.  It is a real place we can and must possess in these last days.  Jesus centers His teaching to His disciples around this Truth, telling them they must enter the Kingdom of God to fight evil and to continue His Works until He returns.

The Kingdom of God is in your midst

The Kingdom of Heaven

 4.  You must know that the time of this evil and satanic One World Global government is at hand.  There is no time left for preparation, it is time to fight.

How did this happen, and what do we do?

Let’s go back to the decade of the seventies and early eighties. We were told to read our Bible, learn our Bible, apply the truth of the Bible to our lives and to teach the Bible to others.

Pulpits and many pastors were on fire for God. They preached and taught forcefully against sin, about heaven and hell, and about the amazing Grace of God and His offer of salvation through faith in Jesus.

They were exciting times to be a Christian. Many of us, who became Christians during this time, felt like we had found a new lease on life and were encouraged to take possession of our relationship with God as our own. We were encouraged to imitate Jesus in every way. Ego, pride, materialism were things of the past. Fear, doubt, worry, guilt and shame were cast aside. Drugs, alcohol, permissive sex were shunned. We were new creatures, soldier of the Cross!

With this newfound freedom, many were excited to tell others about Jesus, and we were encouraged to learn more and to become true disciples of Jesus.

Our churches offered Sunday school classes teaching about the Bible and evening classes which encouraged us to learn the Bible. We attended conferences which taught all about the Bible, often in grand scale. Learning and teaching the Bible was the emphasis for Christians in our churches for decades.

A Shift Occurred – “learning” had become the primary focus”.

An entire decade of Christians had learned their Bible, but because “learning” had become the primary focus, it had become routine. Study for the sake of studying. The relationship with God was growing stale. Click this link for the video, SUB MERGING CHURCH, A NEW STRANGE GOSPEL EMERGES https://youtu.be/WHTgQ8zs4go

The up-and-coming seminary graduates became pastors. And these new leaders were forging ahead with new ideas foreign to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Traditions and rituals were retired. The old hymns and hymnals were discarded. New terms like “social justice”, “missional” and “spiritual formation” were coined and the intent behind these terms was a reemergence of a modern Gnosticism. A new term was coined: Globalism.

“Gnosticism (from Ancient Greek: γνωστικός gnōstikós, “having knowledge”) is a collection of ancient religious ideas and systems which originated in the first century AD among early Christian and Jewish sects.

These various groups emphasized personal spiritual knowledge (gnosis) over orthodox teachings, traditions, and ecclesiastical authority.

Viewing material existence as flawed or evil, Gnostics considered the principal element of salvation to be direct knowledge of the supreme divinity in the form of mystical or esoteric insight. Many Gnostic texts deal not in concepts of sin and repentance, but with illusion and enlightenment.

RELIGIOUS HUMANISM We noticed that the new Establishment Church leadership had changed. They were not always doing what the Bible said to do in the way the Bible said to do it. They were reinterpreting the Word of God to fit the postmodern age. They were teaching a Religious Humanism brought forth from the loins of Marxism.

Pulpits and sermons were muted by the 501(c)(3) government tax exemption clause. Preaching against sin was being modified by social justice advocates and cheap grace ideologies. The Church was being taught to ‘fit into the world’s model’ in order to be more acceptable.

A resistance to the New Establishment church is born

We, The Body of Christ, discovered the New Establishment church, it’s leaders, pastors, teachers and theologians really had no plan beyond teaching a ‘new theology‘ (see Gnostics) being passed off as the Bible, and teaching it inside the church.  It is a Religious Humanism brought forth from the loins of Marxism.

The Church also become predominantly program-oriented, pastor driven, monetized and is being sold on the open market. Congregations became “religious consumers”. A person could now shop churches until they found the one that best suited their views, wants and personal needs.

The new Establishment Church had the idea to keep church members busy with activities such as mothers mornings out, cooking classes, retirement planning classes, social gatherings, social outings and trips, that have little to do with the Bible. This mollified the church, making the members feel like they were accomplishing something.

But, the new Establishment Church seemed to have failed to plan what would come next after the “Learn your Bible” era.

As a result, many Christians began to “Go and make disciples, teaching them to observe all that Jesus had taught” on their own. They were the new resistance, the new remnant.

Some of these pioneers started small group Church gatherings, baptizing new believers, laying hands on the sick and sending others to do the same. Home Bible studies like Stone Croft and Bible Study Fellowship became popular. House churches began to spring up.

Organizations like Calvary Chapel, self-described as a “movement”, under the leadership of Pastor Chuck Smith, started and grew into a national movement.

Pastor Henry Blackaby’s study, “Experiencing God” and men like Ralph Neighbors provided leadership in areas of personal evangelism, the Home Church movement.

Books like “Pagan Christianity” by George Barna and Frank Viola, helped fuel this new movement with ideas.

Most of the New Establishment Church found all of these developments troubling. It was disrupting their program to tighten their grip on the direction of the church in post-modern America by promoting their new model of church.

So, began a concerted effort by the New Religious-Humanist Establishment to put things into their predetermined denominational order.

By the early 2000s, we began to hear terms from the pulpit to describe the brave new Christian movement as “Rogue Christians”, “Loose cannon Christians”, “Lone Ranger Christians”.

We heard pastoral sermons describing the new resistance or Remnant Christian movement as “Bible Boys” or “Bible Girls” and “Who do they think they are, causing all this trouble?”, “We can’t allow this in our church because they might teach heresy or something” or, “They aren’t legitimate, they didn’t go to seminary.”

The New Establishment Church formulated religious-political movements, hired legal teams, established satellite networks and began to furiously compete with one another.

Church pastors shifted away from the role of a Biblical pastor, who cared for God’s Flock, visited the sick, shut-ins, prayed with the church members, and who spent time with his church family. They had moved toward a religious-business model of CEO-types, professional “teaching-pastors”, executive-pastors, and the like.

It has now become normal, that in order to see your own pastor, you need an appointment and some luck.

The new “Church business-model” and business plans for “exponential growth” and raising and making money has created a phenomenon of widespread church bankruptcies, pastor burnout, the need for conflict resolution teams.

The move toward a religious-business model for the church, confirmed the need for the 501(c)(3) government approved church. It had fully emerged.

The Church is adrift. We are sheep without a shepherd.

Ezekiel 34:6

“My flock wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill; My flock was scattered over all the surface of the earth, and there was no one to search or seek for them.”

Verse 7.  “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Verse 8. “As I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “surely because My flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for My flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock;

Verse 9. “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: 10‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will demand My sheep from them and make them cease from feeding sheep. So the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore, but I will deliver My flock from their mouth, so that they will not be food for them.”

The words in the church sound familiar. But it has changed. Jesus warned about this. He told us many would come saying “I am the Christ”. We expected some guy in robes, I guess. But it is the false gospel of many false teachers in the church.

THE FALSE CHURCH IS HERE – THE APOSTASY HAS BEGUN

So, what does this all mean, and what are we to do about it? We are to be prepared as the early Church learned.

Please prepare. Join together with us and with others. Read the following links and contact us. This is URGENT.

A COSMIC STORM IS COMING

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 to 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 6 And 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 7 For 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 8 All 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 preceeding 3 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. as 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.

A CORD THRICE BRAIDED

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 Grassroots Response to the Overthrow of America by Socialist-Marxists, a.k.a., the Democrat Party

NEW WORLD ORDER

A ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT

The Bible tells us of a time when world events will collide in a world-wide cataclysm. We are seeing, what appears to be, the finals acts of that event in our day. (October 2021).

The Bible warns of wars and rumors of wars, nations rising against nations, earthquakes, famines, drought, disease and death. We are warned of false Messiahs, a horrific persecution of Christians, world-wide and a great falling away from the faith. (Matthew chapter 24 and Revelation chapters 6 & 7).

All the things listed, have already occurred and are occurring, and in fact, have been ongoing, intensifying and overlapping, since the death and resurrection of Jesus, this is, except for the Great Apostasy, a.k.a., the great falling away, but we now have signs that the Apostasy has begun.

We are told that “AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS”, that is, after  the first FIVE SCROLL SEALS are broken, as described above (also, see the Matthew chapter 24 and Revelation chapters 6 and 7), the world will witness  great cosmic disturbances, as have never seen by mankind.

During these times, the Bible (Daniel and Revelation) foretells of coming a World Government, headed by a highly intelligent and charismatic individual who is able to lead a great and fierce army, conquering many. He will be able to deceive many and to do miraculous deeds, and will take control of a worldwide empire and the lives of every person on earth.

I have outlined the SEALS of the Tribulation, below for easy reference in order to point out what is now at hand. I am showing Jesus Word to His disciples, taken from the book of Matthew, chapter 24, and I have added the corollary verses from the Book of Revelation (I have not gone into the Trumpet and Bowl judgements): Click here or on the image of the scrolls for more.

PS:  I originally wrote this in 2018, so this is actually “old news”.  Both Bush presidents appear to have colluded with the Marxists in our government and around the world.  See Agenda-21: Cover for the U.N., One World Government and Marxism for details.

MORE great reading on these matters:

GLOBALSIM and the TOWER OF BABEL

 

 

 

 

 

Do they have anything in common?

Publications like Wikipedia or “The Economist” confuse the matter of Globalism and the aims of Globalism by asserting there are various kinds of ‘Globalism’. (disassembling the word into component parts and delving into fabricated systems).

Merriam-Webster is close by saying Globalism is “a national policy of treating the whole world as a proper sphere for political influence, similar to imperialism or internationalism”.

Socialists and communists say Globalism is the key to worldwide prosperity. But, the truth is that Globalists say it is a key to worldwide prosperity, but they know it 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.

An article from the Jerusalem Post, titled, “UNESCO’s Globalist Agenda minus Israel” has reported that “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.

“The Obama Administration provided an example of leftist globalists in action. Bankrolled by billionaire George Soros, and using the radical social-manipulation “rules” of Obama mentor Saul Alinsky, the Left exploits groups like Black Lives Matter as “agents of change” to help usher in their new world order. They fund and direct 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, MO. Their strategy: foment societal disruption 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.

“Former UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller told the San Jose Mercury that religious fundamentalism’s “inflexible belief systems … play an incendiary role in global conflicts.” There’ll be no peace without “taming fundamentalism through a United Religion that professes faithfulness only to global spirituality,” he said.”

The Commission on Global Governance has publically stated that when their Agenda-21 plan is fully implemented, “it 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 World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in New York City, NY, USA, September 15-17, 2015, set a date of 2030 for complete implementation of their Agenda 21 and Global Dominance by this Marxist global movement.

So what are we to do? What can we do?

The Bible tells of the beginning’s this idea of 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.” Gen 11:4-6

Revelation 13:16-18, says, “And he (the “beast” aka, the anti-Christ) causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.”

DON’T BE DECEIVED

The ‘rest of this story’ or the ‘story behind this story’ is Globalism. As usual, a plausible, but false narrative is presented to obscure the real agenda – a One World Government.

An article saying Europe is dying is a false flag – a distraction. Europe is neither dead nor dying. And, Europe is not being ‘reborn’ (an unfortunate choice of words in this article). Europe was being infiltrated until around 2014. Since 2015 it became a full scale INVASION. This, too, is a distraction to have people think Europe is being transformed by the 4 Stages of the Islamic Conquest.  While Europe and the world grapples with the Muslim invasion through illegal immigration, the Socialists work on their Agenda-21, freely and furiously, unimpeded, and in plain sight,

This same this is happening in America. Under Obama, the infiltration was accelerated. President Trump is trying to stop the INVASION from abroad, as well as undoing the damage done to our Nation and national interests by the previous three administrations. And democrats / Socialists hate him for his efforts and are doing all they can to stymie or destroy his efforts, including hamstringing or collapsing the US economy, destroying American social structures, disrupting our banking systems, controlling the Federal Reserve, socializing our medical systems.

The enemies of America, the Globalists, are embedded in our government, in our religious systems, in our churches, in our school, colleges and institutions of higher education. They are using methods to erase and eradicate the culture, history and legacy both in Europe and in America.

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 agenda of this “migration” and Globalism or One World Government is not the stuff of any book. It is stuff of THE BOOK, that is THE BIBLE.

A foreshadowing of this event can be found in Genesis 11. The Tower of Babel (Hebrew: מִגְדַּל בָּבֶל‎, Migdal Bāḇēl) as told in Genesis 11:1-9 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 Socialist and Communist manifestos of the State being your god – from cradle to grave)

WHAT TO DO?

This is ‘forecast’ or what is Prophesied in the Bible. It will occur. It is underway. You and I must PREPARE.

1. Surrender to Jesus as Lord and for Salvation, and He will give you wisdom, strength, courage and knowledge.

2. Repent and enter the Kingdom of God. “From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4:17 This Kingdom is a very real place. It is described by metaphor, but it is no metaphor. It is a real place we must possess in these last days. Jesus centers His teaching to His disciples around this Truth, telling them they must enter the Kingdom of God and continue His Works until He returns. (more on this in an upcoming article)

2. Educate yourself. Become Bible literate. “Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom…” Revelation 13:16-18

3. “Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 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.”

4. “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.”

These are real and serious matters and you must know that…

Economics will not save you.

  • A good shelter (a home), a supply of food and water may help as God’s Judgments unfold and intensify in these Last Days, while we wait for His return to take us to our Eternal Home.
  • Medicines may help.  You should have what you need for a time.
  • Guns and politics will not save you.
  • Technology, such as phones, radio and internet can be helpful, but they will not save you.

These are exciting times in which we live! But, we must be prepared to ‘endure to the end’ (most likely the end of the 5th Seal of Revelation) as Jesus said in Matthew 24. And by all accounts, it would seem we are at that stage!

(Click here or on the image above for details about “WHAT IT MEANS TO GET READY“. Please read the entire article, but, Page 31 tells the Christian, specifically, what it means to get ready.)

(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 democrat 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 Capitalims, 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 termerity to denigrate Capitalism and the American Way and to say that the middel class is being treated unfarily.  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 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.)

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!

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

The Church – that is all Christians – is 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.

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE

Going on the Offensive, Part III

“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 as 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.

Your Brother and Friend,

(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

Going on the Offensive, Part II

“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.

I.   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  you cannot know how and are unable TO EFFECTIVELY ENGAGE THE EVIL ENVELOPING OUR NATION AND THE WORLD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

II.  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.

IV.  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.

V.  OUR THREE-FOLD RESPONSE & OUR MISSION

1. Philippians 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves, which was also in Christ Jesus,

2. 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.

3. 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!

Your Brother and Friend,

Mike Young

Next Episode:  Going on the Offensive, Part 3

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE – footnotes & helps

The third ‘help’ is some examples of Jesus, speaking The Word.  You can find many more examples by doing your own Bible study.  You will find several examples, below here:

Example:  Matthew 22:15-17, tells us,  “Then the Pharisees went and plotted together how they might trap Him in what He said.  And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any. “Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?”

Jesus responds

Matthew 22:18 says, “But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, “Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites.”

The result

Mathew 22:22  says,  “And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away.”

Example:  Matthew 17:15, tells us of a man who calls on Jesus, and says, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic and is very ill; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. “I brought him to Your disciples, and they could not cure him.”

Jesus responds

Verse 17.  “And Jesus answered and said, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me.”

The result

Verse18.  “And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured at once.

Verse 19.  “Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not drive it out?” Verse 20.  And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith.”

Example:   John 18:33 tells us, “Therefore Pilate entered again into the Praetorium, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”

Jesus Responds

Verse 34.  “Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or did others tell you about Me?”

Verse 35.  “Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You to me; what have You done?”

Jesus Responds

Verse 36.  “Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

Verse 37.  “Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?”

Jesus Responds

Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

The Result

Verse 38.  “Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”  And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, “I find no guilt in Him.”

Example:  John 4:7, tells us, “There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” Verse 8. For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Verse 9. Therefore, the Samaritan woman said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)

Jesus responds

Verse 10.  “Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

Verse 11.  “She said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; where then do You get that living water?  Verse 12.  “You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?”

Jesus responds

Verse 13.  “Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; Verse 14. but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”

 Verse 15.  “The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.”

Jesus responds

Verse 16. He said to her, “Go, call your husband and come here.”

Verse 17.  The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.”

Jesus responds

“Jesus said to her, “You have correctly said, ‘I have no husband’; Verse 18.  for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; this you have said truly.”

Verse 19.  “The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Verse 20. “Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.”

Jesus responds

Verse 21.  “Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. Verse 22.  “You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. Verse 23. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. Verse 24.  “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Verse 25.  “The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.”

Jesus responds

Verse 26.  “Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”

The Result

Verse 28.  “So the woman left her water pot, and went into the city and said to the men, verse 29. “Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done; this is not the Christ, is it?” Verse 30. They went out of the city, and were coming to Him.”

OUR STRUGGLE

“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.

ESCAPE THE ‘DIALECTIC’

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 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  new and better society is called socialist society. “

·  “There can be nothing more abominable than religion.”

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE – The Marxists Dialectic

America Under Siege

The Marxist Dialectic Methodology

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 it 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.”

America Under Siege

(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.

Isaiah 2, 9, 11, 13                                   Matthew 24,

Micah 4                                                 Hebrews 1:2,

Jeremiah 30, 33, 50                            Hebrews 9:26,

Hosea 3                                                 Acts 2:14-17,

Joel 2, 3,                                                2 Timothy 3:1,

Zechariah 8                                          1 Peter 1:20,

Ezekiel 30                                             1 Peter 4:7,

Amos 5                                                  2 Peter 3:3.

                                                                5th Tribulation Seal

6th Tribulation Seal

     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 our 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.)

(PLEASE NOTE: Links on these pages contain important details and are used in lieu of footnotes and citations.)

     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)

Go to PART II

NOT OF THIS WORLD? Part 2

If My kingdom were of this world, *then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews

I have heard many Christian friends say something like, “We have to do something about the Leftists, the Progressives, the Liberals and the Marxists taking over America from within.  It’s time we stand up and fight!”

When and if I respond, I might say, “I understand how you feel.  I often feel the same.  However, Jesus has said we have a different mission and calling.”

No one, without exception, has agreed with my response, and, it usually provokes the person to disagree and disapprove or go silent with a look of anger and dissatisfaction on their face.

I, honestly, get so angry at what I see happening in our once great nation, I have to find a way to calm down and not think thoughts of revenge.

So, why do I believe and say that Jesus would not approve of Christians taking up the defense of America, either politically, socially or militarily?

Jesus repeatedly reminds us that we have a different agenda than the agenda of this world.  And, this is not the first (nor the last?) time the world will go after its own ideas and reject God.

One of the earliest attempts by mankind to become like God and to replace God with man’s own efforts, is recorded in Genesis chapter 11.  According to the Biblical account, the descendants of Noah had become numerous and a united humanity in the generations following the Great Flood.  They were speaking a single language and migrating eastward, they settled in a land named Shinar. There, the Babylonians wanted a tower that would “reach to the heavens” so that they could be like God and that they would not need Him. They began to construct the great ziggurat.

God rejected the pride and arrogance of these people, so, He caused the people to suddenly speak different languages so they could not communicate and work together to build the tower. He confused their language. The tower was named The Tower of Babel because the word Babel means confusion. This caused the people to scatter across the land.

Genesis 11:4 reads,  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.”

 Verse 5.  The Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. Verse 6.  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.

The Tower of Babel was a revealing of the sinful and arrogant nature of mankind and his ongoing rebellion toward God.  It was also a foreshadowing of what was happen in THE LAST DAYS.  And, it is happening now, in America and around the world. People of the world are uniting into a One World Community, with a One World Goverment, reaching for the heavens.  (Read this introduction by the Commission for Global Governance.)

The organization is a United Nations specialized agency named UNESCO, the ‘United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’ claiming to be aimed at promoting world peace and security through international cooperation in education, the sciences, and culture.

The first Director-General of UNESCO, Julian Huxley in 1946, said “The task before UNESCO, 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 stated objectives of this New World Order, which are a cover for the coming socialist, authoritarian global government and court with “global rule of law” and a “one-world economy.” can be found on the United Nations web page Transforming our world: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  

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. (Agenda 21 – Cover for the U.N. and a One World Government)

As of this date, Globalists, have been embedded in our government, in our religious systems, in our churches, in our school, colleges and institutions of higher education. They are using methods to erase and eradicate the culture, history and legacy both in Europe and in America.

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”. 

The true hidden agenda of this “migration” and Globalism or One World Government is not stuff of just any book. It is stuff of THE BOOK, which is THE BIBLE

TAKING PLACE NOW

The Bible calls this THE LAST DAYS and the Great Tribulation.  Jesus tells us how we are to deal with this long prophesied event, which is taking place, now.

First, in order to understand why Jesus’ instructions and commands seem so antithetical or counter-intuitive to our natural minds, let’s look at His perspective:

Jesus says to the scribes and Pharisees,, in John 8:23, You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.

The full text of John 8:12-23 says, Then Jesus again spoke to them (the The scribes and the Pharisees), saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”  So the Pharisees said to Him, “You are testifying about Yourself; Your testimony is not true.”  Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I testify about Myself, My testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from or where I am going.  You judge according to the flesh; I am not judging anyone.  But even if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me.  Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true.  I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me.”  So they were saying to Him, “Where is Your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father; if you knew Me, you would know My Father also.”  These words He spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one seized Him, because His hour had not yet come.

 Then He said again to them, “I go away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come.”  So the Jews were saying, “Surely He will not kill Himself, will He, since He says, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come’?” Verse 23.  And He was saying to them, “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world. 

We cannot follow Jesus nor can we navigate these Last Days and the Tribulation to come, unless we obtain and understand Jesus’ is living and operating in His Kingdom of Heaven which is “above”.  He is not of this world!

Next, in John 15:19, Jesus says to His disciples, If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.  If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.

We, too, as disciples of Jesus, are not of this world.  In fact, Ephesians 2:4-7 tells us that we are seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  And, Colossians 3:2 tell us that we are to “Set our minds on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.”  The matters of this world are not our primary concern.

Read and hear what the Apostle Peter says about this matter of Christians ‘not being of this world’ in 1 Peter 1:16:

“Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,  

who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.  

“In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.

“As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow.  It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.

Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  

“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.

RECAP:

  1. We reside in this world as aliens,  
  2. We are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood:
  3. We are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time
  4. We have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
  5. Obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.
  6. Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
  7. Do not be conformed to the former lusts
  8. You shall be holy, for I am holy.

John 18:36 says that Jesus answered the scribes and the Pharisees, saying, My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, *then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

When Peter took a sword and struck the high priest’s slave, and cut off his right ear, Jesus said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it?”  Jesus rebuked Peter and reminded the others that things of this world was not their fight.  Their total attention was to be on the mission The Father had given Jesus.  This is also true for us, today.

Jesus emphasized that our time on this earth is to be spent doing the Will of The Father, just like Jesus has always done.  Our concern is not fighting with this world.  Our concern, our calling and our mission is to follow Jesus and to Go 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 Jesus has commanded us.” 

Our time is short and the harvest fields are white for the harvest.

Satan would love if we would just give up and accept “pacifism. “Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man?”
Reply from  Mike Young

This isn’t pacifism, Wayne. We must not entangle ourselves in the conflicts of this world. If God cannot or does not – of if we cannot or will not trust Him with dominion over evil by the Word of our Testimony and by the Blood of the Lamb, then it’s on us. We cannot live and operate as if we are in the world and as if we are in The Kingdom of God. The two just don’t mix.

I know this is hard. It is hard for me, too. But, it is what the word says. “Live the sword, die by the sword”.
Pacifism is opposition to war or violence as a means of settling disputes, specifically the refusal to bear arms on moral or religious grounds.

First, the WORD of God is written to and for Christians. (It is foolishness to those who don’t believe. They cannot understand it).

We, as Christians, are told we prove we are followers of Christ by our love for one another.

Secondly, there is a mindset (attitude) we are to hold, even for non-believers. We are not to pick fights with them, and we are to avoid conflict with them whenever possible. Romans 12:18 tells us, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.” We are to model the life and attitude of Christ.

The Bible never says we should not defend ourselves, although the Apostles did not defend with violence, they went to great lengths to avoid violent conflict. This is our model.

What I believe, the Bible is teaching is the law of non-resistance – not pacifism. Matthew 5:29 says, “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.” The word RESIST is a comes from a Greek military term for violent conflict.
James 4:7-8 says we are to, “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. “

We are to speak the Word of God to evil and the evil one. Our enemies are the rulers, the powers, and the world forces of darkness, and spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. If we engage the enemy there, he is defeated. If we engage him with natural means, it can be a long and bloody war with no end in sight.

This is applicable in “REAL LIFE”. And, it is hard to do because of our flesh and unbelief.
I can give examples of the mighty power of God in and around my life during stressful conflict. It would appear I would suffer great loss. And, at times, I did suffer some loss. But, then came the victory and God has restored what the enemy has stolen; and He has restored what the locust has eaten. But, it has taken faith, patience and endurance. (And, I still doubt, at times).
