Introduction

If you have seen many of the old western shows and movies created some 50 to 75 years ago, you have witnessed the best and worst of the human heart in action. These shows often picture apostate men and women lusting after the resources of others. Loving self supremely; they will do whatever wickedness it takes for them to get what they want.

Standing tall in opposition to these wicked are the good men and women who are willing to lay down their lives in love, truth and justice in order to protect the lives, rights, and resources of others. The kind of people that went to the Bundy ranch in Nevada to help defend their neighbor against unjust, abusive, greedy power.

Like wicked modern day government operatives, the evildoers in old western tales can even be seen creating “false flag” scenarios in which they destroy something and blame it on a party they want to demonize and get out of their way so that they can move ahead with their evil plans. The BLM did this in trying to justify grabbing the Bundy acreage in order to protect turtles that they were actually destroying.

Without natural affection, brute beasts will shoot the defenseless or even their own blood in order to increase their share of the spoils. Pure evil falsely justified through worn out clichés like “more bang for the buck”, “just doing my job”, or “it’s the color of law”. The fruit of their wicked human hearts is deceit, greed and violence. Violence is the force and god which enables them to secure their short lived rendezvous with earthly riches. Their depraved, twisted minds deceive them to pay a tormented, unquenchable, eternal fiery hell in exchange for an appetizing taste of fallen paradise. Faithless and blinded by Lucifer’s dark light, they choose to enjoy an appetizing taste of fallen paradise here rather than eternity in the love, peace, beauty, comfort, security and prosperity of the Lord’s presence in his heavenly New Jerusalem. Only the intellectual and spiritual superiority of their invisible father the devil could convince the minds of such supposedly shrewd people to make such a foolish, short-sighted, self destructive decision. Only the unconditional love of a merciful, just and holy God would allow such stinking dogs the opportunity to repent; to turn away from their wickedness and receive pardon for their atrocious actions before his unbending justice demands that he throw them and their gang of supporters into the bottomless smoking pit to roast for eternity with their father the devil and his fallen angels.

Isaiah the prophet expressed the thoughts of the Lord God of Israel toward such people this way:

They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end. For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save. Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory. (Isaiah 45: 16-25)

Retreating back to the idea of a “false flag” scenario; if you still can’t believe that any government wouldn’t manufacture murderous crises in order to give the impression that their murderous attack on a demonized foreign party is morally justified, you simply haven’t read history or the Bible with an open mind and heart.

Russia-Ukraine Crisis

The Russia-Ukraine situation is just another instance in which U.S. military led western outlaws are doing whatever it takes to do what they want. I have done some reading and research on the conflict from its onset. It is clear that Russia isn’t the aggressor in this situation.
Here are providing some insightful and well researched articles from Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan and past associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, on the history of this dangerous conflict.

The Center For Globalization Research offers these insightful articles on the subject:

http://www.globalresearch.ca/kiev-uses-chemical-weapons/5381664

Professing Christians need to be aware of this and be careful not to jump on the warmongering bandwagon promoting sanctions and military action against Russia and its interests. This should be no surprise since foreign policy advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has said that “it should be the American goal to draw Russia toward Europe, to let Russia have a European identity and future, and that a European Ukraine is a necessary precursor for that.” “Russia will have to face the fact that it cannot indefinitely control that huge space, potentially so mineral rich, without being part of something larger. And that something larger essentially is the Euro-Atlantic Community, I don’t see Russia becoming a junior partner of China. If it does, it will lose the Far East someday, perhaps cataclysmically.” (pg. 180-181, “America And The World” )

On page 175 of the same book, another former National Security advisor Brent Scowcroft makes it clear that the U.S. wants the Ukraine incorporated into Europe. Brzezinski states that “Russia cannot be in Europe without Ukraine also being in Europe, whereas Ukraine can be in Europe without Russia being in Europe”. (pg. 122 and pg. 196 in the “The Grand Chessboard”)

What is really going on here in the Ukraine?

Brzezinski makes that clear in the same 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard. On page 86 he states that America’s central geopolitical goal in Europe is to “consolidate through a more genuine transatlantic partnership the U.S. bridgehead on the Eurasian continent so that an enlarging Europe can become a more viable springboard for projecting into Eurasia the international democratic and cooperative order.”

Chapter 7 of The Grand Chessboard is replete with Brzezinski’s preaching that it is up to America’s global planners; backed by American military, to formulate, maneuver, manipulate, encourage, prod and accommodate the geopolitical powers on the “Eurasian chessboard”, the globe’s central area, so that nobody can remove the U.S. or her powerful influence from Eurasia.
On page 196 he says that the “global stewardship that America has inherited is hence likely to be buffeted by turbulence, tension, and at least sporadic violence.” He refers to “the new and complex international order, shaped by American hegemony” and says that America will compete with “forces of turbulence” in Eurasia. He speaks on page 55 of the most dangerous “antihegomonic” scenario America could face. This danger is what we now see taking shape as a result of our maneuvering and manipulating in the Ukraine; the grand coalition of China, Russia, and perhaps Iran, a group of nations are being united by grievances against the hegemonic interests of the United States of America.

The following article by William Jasper provides a broad understanding of the geopolitical aims of this major move by globalist planners being played out now in the Ukraine.

Conclusion

What do I think is really happening in the Ukraine? In my opinion, the crisis has multiple objectives.

First, political leaders and the masses under the influence of corporate propaganda are being conditioned to support increased military spending.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/dougbandow/2014/04/07/washington-should-not-defend-ukraine-or-expand-nato-u-s-should-shift-responsibility-for-europes-defense-to-europe/2/

What is the reason for this? Fomenting chaos and propagating violence increases borrowing needs. Increased borrowing results in increased banker profits and devaluation of the dollar. Dollar devaluation depresses the purchasing power of the people while increasing the revenues of central bankers and informed investors. This process of war fed poverty increases the divide between the wealthy controllers and the people under their control. (Revelation 6:3-6)

Second, the Ukraine crisis is not only designed to increase banker profits, this major move on the grand global chessboard aims to further consolidate financial control in the hands of wicked leaders. It is about furthering the integration of Russia and Ukraine and the their natural resources under the control of the global financial system.

http://rt.com/business/156912-russian-putin-card-payment/

Third, by weakening the dollar, globalist powers further decrease the ability of the American people to stand against their drive to create the fourth and final global beast out of the sea kingdom.

http://scgnews.com/russia-threatens-to-drop-the-dollar-and-crash-the-us-economy-if-sanctions-are-imposed-obama-signs-sa

This kingdom will be comprised of 10 kingdoms which will be led by an 11th kingdom, the little horn kingdom. The little horn kingdom is to be led by Antichrist; the false prophet. Lucifer is currently driving the creation of the fourth and final beast out of the sea kingdom, the “United States of the World”, through the military power of the little horn beast out of the earth kingdom, the United States of America; the mysterious woman revealed in the Revelation as that woman, that great whore, that global superpower called Babylon the Great. (Daniel 2:40-45; Daniel 7:7; Daniel 7:19-24; Revelation 13:1-7)

http://www.escapebabylonsdemons.com/uploads/REV_13_THE_UNITED_STATES_OF_THE_WORLD_JAN_11_2011.pdf

Using the Ukraine crisis to try to integrate Russia and her resources into the hands of the controllers of the global financial system seems to me to be another pivotal move by the wicked in their efforts to finalize that ten nation scarlet colored beast currently led by the fallen superpower Babylon the Great, the mysterious enigma we now know as the fallen United States Of America. (Revelation 17-19:3)

We have now fallen so far as a nation that we actually believe the lie to the extent that we are supporting the very same evil forces that we claim we must protect the world from by killing lives abroad and freedom at home.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/washington-behind-the-massacre-in-eastern-ukraine-putin-takes-the-blame/5381686

What terrible fate awaits the whore and her children; the wicked who birth such evil plans and their faithless partners who, either directly or indirectly support their violent dealings.

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. (Revelation 18:1-8)

What blessed assurance awaits those who live by faith and come out of Babylon; those who put their hands to the plow and won’t look turn back, even in the face of death, to desire Babylon’s temporary beauty like Lot’s wife did when she was fleeing Sodom.

Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:14-17)

Christian internet news is currently flowing with reports concerning the suspension of Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame by the A & E network. He was suspended because he expressed bible based, common sense feelings against homosexual behavior.

Duck Dynasty means nothing to me because I don’t own a TV. My thoughts on the matter is that it’s good to see the professing church speaking out in defense of Constitutionally based free speech. On the other hand, it makes me wonder why we don’t see greater concern over the censorship of free speech occurring within our institutions and corporations.

If the professing church is really this upset over censorship within the entertainment industry, why isn’t she alarmed over the ongoing censorship of free expression in important places like public schools, 501-c3 churches, news media and institutions. This inconsistency makes me wonder if the root cause of the anger is really the loss of free speech. Maybe people are upset because they fear losing the pleasure of watching a favorite Hollywood icon.

Many who say that Jesus is the Christ are deceived and deceiving many today. (Luke 21:8; Matthew 24:5) Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? (Luke 6:39) Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18)

Where are the professing Christian politicians and lawyers who are faithful to Constitutional law and working to gain equal tolerance of their professed faith and controversial truth within our schools and places of employment?

This question isn’t referring to globalist friendly and traitorous CFR influenced politicians like Mike Huckabee; men whose words mean nothing because they are all about what’s best for their careers.

What I’m referring to are professing Christian leaders with vision; leaders we can trust because their “yes means yes and no means no”.

We say children are our future; this being the case, where are the Christian leaders who support public education that are teaching their flocks to peaceably demand equal time and tolerance from school boards, district superintendents, school principals and classroom teachers for truth, natural law, and biblical behavior, principals and values? A pastor may say he doesn’t support public education, however, if members of his flock use the system to educate their children, and he is doing nothing to reform the beast, such inaction becomes affirmative action.

The blind can’t lead the blind! Worse than blind guides are blind authoritarian pastors. These lords won’t typically learn from anyone they consider to be below them on God’s organizational chart. They will only take advice from financially influential tares who tickle their ears with worldly wisdom they can use to help grow their organization. (Note: For a biblical look at Pastoral Authority please see Pastoral Authority)

Pastors who lead parents to send their children to public schools have a responsibility to know the influences affecting their children’s minds. They should know the classroom teachers, guidance counselors, and educational curriculum educating their children. They should know the moral climate of the schools.

Public education is a very trendy business. It is characterized by frequent and rapid change. The rate and effect of change in curriculum and teaching pedagogy varies by state and by district within each state. As a result, there is no quick, one size fits all method to gain an accurate understanding of the educational issues affecting a particular locale. A person can’t read an article about education in Virginia and assume that all the same issues will exist outside Virginia. Because of this diversity, pastors need to personally interview board members and district leaders within their locale if they are going to be equipped to watch for the souls of their flock for whom they are accountable. (Hebrews 13:7) If a pastor feels that this type of oversight is not practically feasible; in my opinion, based upon many years of experience in various types of education, the pastor should advise his flock to educate their children at home.

Pastors are responsible to teach parents to protect their children from the antichristian philosophy, values, and beliefs permeating public schools. They have a responsibility to train the parents of saved children attending public school that these children have a responsibility to be holy in school. This holiness means that they are to be faithful to their Lord and his truth in all classroom discussions, performances and conversations. These children of God need to be taught that they can expect to be persecuted for some of their beliefs. They need to know that God expects them to answer all questions truthfully. They should be taught that answering a question correctly from the point of view of a teacher or textbook can be sin if they know that the answer isn’t truthful. They need to be instructed that they have a legal, first amendment, Constitutional right to express their faith and knowledge publically; that God expects them to pray silently throughout their day and to share Christ and his teachings even if they are forbidden to do so.

You might think that this puts children under too much pressure. They are already under a lot of pressure to conform to the world. This is all the more reason why we better expect them to conform their lives to the word of God. Yes, persecution for the sincere and biblically enlightened believer, no matter what their age, is promised. But fear of suffering is no reason to give up the good fight of the faith and surrender to devilish lies when we know the better way of truth. We are commanded to fight the good fight. This is true whether we think we can make a difference or not. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 1 Timothy 6; 2 Timothy 4:1-8; Hebrews 10:32-Hebrews 11:40; Revelation 2-3)

God is love. His merciful benevolence expresses cares for all people. (John 3:16; 1 John 4:7-12; Matthew 5:43-48) He desires that his chosen people pray, teach and work to salt and light the world. This is so that all people can have an opportunity to be saved and live their lives in quiet freedom, peace, godliness, and honesty. (1Timothy 2: 1-2)  

Let’s pray that the eyes of the hearts of the current crop of blind leaders will be enlightened with godly vision. In addition, let’s ask that God grow a new crop of godly leaders who will help lead the body of Christ out of the Babylonian ditch into which she has fallen.

Introduction

The intent of this message is to present the mind of Christ, as revealed to us in the scriptures, with regard to politics, business, and theology in order to help unite the body of Christ.  

This summer I’ve seen that the Lord Jesus Christ and professing believers can be 180 degrees apart in their thinking with regards to issues surrounding politics, business and theology.

Religion and Theology

Beginning with the subject of religion; author Frank Schaeffer,  son of the late pastor-theologian-evangelical teacher-author Francis Schaeffer, expresses distaste for those of us who believe that the Old and New Testament scriptures are given by inspiration of God.

In his November 16, 2012 article entitled,  “If Jesus Hates Anything Maybe It’s Theology.” Schaeffer has exchanged the awesome certainty of experiencing fellowship with God through repentant faith in scripture, prayer, and Holy Spirit controlled relationships for feeling human love through participation in the uncertain religious mystery of the Greek Orthodox Church.

Schaeffer feels that “Orthodox liturgy is aesthetically pleasing: no guitars or historic preaching, lots of candles to light, incense to smell, things to kiss, stuff to march around with in processions,  and no one cares if you arrive late.” He says he “encounters the part of his brain that feels like its encountering God.” He expresses the misled belief that humanity is not separated from Holy God due to an inherit sinful nature stating “who you are, not what you believe is what’s important. In that sense you could be a “good Orthodox” and also an atheist– at least some of the time because doubt is not looked down on.” It’s also worth noting that this statement indicates that he believes that the visible actions of an organized religious group trump faith in the teachings of scripture; that church practices are more authoritative than the biblical truth of God’s Word.

Schaeffer’s heretically mocks bible study and authoritative biblical teaching stating that the Bible “has flaws and is just plain crazy in places so they spend lifetimes working to make “sense” of something nonsensical, mean and stupid.”  Rightfully disturbed by extreme Calvinism which twists the loving nature of God;  rather than balancing the reality of God’s sovereignty with biblical truth, he mocks the sovereign and omniscient power of God and divine ability to directly influence human choice. He attributes key life decisions to “genetics, psychology and brain chemistry and where I happen to live and in what time”. He scoffs at the importance of believing the right things about the nature and character of God as revealed to us in scripture. He forgets that true faith in God and his word expresses itself in charity toward others. (I Corinthians 13; James 2; 1 John 5) Furthermore, he dismisses the ability of the Holy Spirit of God to make fellowship with God and others an experiential reality for us as we live in repentant obedience to the God’s commandments and principles as taught in scripture. (1 John 1:5-10) He even claims Jesus was a backsliding Jew who repudiated and rejected the law while attacking the Bible of his day. The truth is that Jesus fulfilled the law; kept the commandments,  and said:

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:17-20)

The reasons for Schaeffer’s rejection of the Bible as truth are a reminder to us that the correct interpretation and application of biblical truth is an eternal issue. Here is a man who has rejected the true biblical Jesus and created another false Christ in his mind. His rejection of biblical truth seems to be an immature over reaction to poor handling of the word of truth by the body of Christ. How many people like Frank have turned away or are in the process of turning away from the truth because the body of Christ has minimized the importance of properly interpreting the intended meaning of scripture? Yes, we all “see through a glass darkly”. We are incapable of understanding all mysteries, however, spiritually blind teachers need to “anoint their eyes with eye-salve, that they may see” the true character and values of God and Savior Jesus Christ. (Revelation 3:18)

Based upon his own statements it’s absolutely clear that Frank Schaeffer doesn’t fit the biblical definition of a child of God.  His actions may reflect the character of Jesus in some ways, however, he speaks as if he has no love, or use, for those of us who love the word of God.

Frank Schaeffer is teaching dangerous heresy; acting as an enemy of the body of Christ while professing to be our friend. He must be shunned as a heretic. (Titus 1:10-14; Titus 3:10-11; 1 Timothy 1:19-20; 1 Timothy 6:3-5)

What does the Lord think about theology; does Jesus hate it more than anything as Frank Shaeffer says?

Webster defines theology as follows:

 “Divinity; the science of God and divine things; or the science which teaches the existence, character and attributes of God, his laws and government, the doctrines we are to believe, and the duties we are to practice.

Theology consists of two branches, natural and revealed. Natural theology is the knowledge we have of God from his works, by the light of nature and reason. Revealed theology is that which is to be learned only from revelation.

Moral theology, teaches us the divine laws relating to our manners and actions, that is, our moral duties. theology, teaches or explains the doctrines of religion, as objects of faith.

Scholastic theology, is that which proceeds by reasoning, or which derives the knowledge of several divine things from certain established principles of faith.”

From these definitions it seems that Jesus Christ would appreciate his children devoting mental energy to loving him with all of their mind; learning more about his divine nature and using their God given intellect to muse about their Heavenly Father; His nature, character, life, values, work, and more. We are to  love the Lord thy God with all our mind; let the word of Christ dwell in us richly; study to show ourselves approved unto God, workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth; and be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Matthew 22:37; Colossians 3:16; 1 Timothy 3:16; Romans 12:2) King David said “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”  (Psalm 1:1-2)  This is how we progressively become more Christ-like; not through mysterious feel good sacraments which hide our dark side. There is a little bit of Judas in us all; however, through sometimes emotionally painful personal interaction with the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit of God heard in divinely inspired scripture,  and remorseful repentance over our sinful nature, we can be forgiven and receive unmerited favor to overcome our ugly, sinful, un-Christ-likeness. 

Politics and Business

Concerning politics and business, many professing believers unknowingly believe in a shrunken God. All members of the body of Christ should be growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. However, there are those among us that should be teachers of truth that are bowing to a God whose values are foreign to the Holy God of the Bible.

Although most would agree that the God of the Bible is holy, all knowing and everywhere present, many professing Christians separate business practices and socio-political beliefs from the commands and principles of scripture. This shouldn’t be; God is everywhere at every moment. He expects his children to obey him without moral compromise in business and politics.

The lopsided American 501-c3 government incorporated religious organization/church emphasizes “preaching the gospel” to the exclusion of “teaching all nations” and the greatest of all virtues, charity. Due to IRS rules regarding the exercise of gifts to needy individuals, 501-c3 church leadership has subtly reduced the meaning of the most important way in which people show themselves to be followers of Christ to polished politeness and a selfish “I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine” mentality. Have we forgotten the truth of Proverbs 24:7 that ” iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend”? Have we forgotten the benefits of brotherly reproof and instruction? The heated friction that will occur between spiritual brothers and sisters as the iron hard truth and spiritual wisdom of one rubs against the earthly wisdom of another is necessary and normal. A satanically deceived  Peter overcame and grew more like Jesus because he listened to the blunt reproofs from Jesus like ” … Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.” (Matthew 16:23)

Webster defined charity as love, kindness, affection, tenderness, springing from natural relations; as the charities of father, son and brother and candor; liberality in judging of men and their actions; a disposition which inclines men to think and judge favorably, and to put the best construction on words and actions which the case will admit. The 501-c3 church will teach this; probably because 501-c3 church leaders know that positive interpersonal relationships among church members and their families helps attendance and financial giving. Most of these guys are ultimately about their bottom line cash flow; so much so that they are even willing to hide from and or suppress the truth in various areas if they fear knowing and or teaching the whole truth  might jeopardize the special IRS tax exemptions they receive that their members don’t.

The whole truth, however,  is that charity; in a theological sense,  includes supreme love to God, and universal good will to men. In a socio-political sense it includes liberality to the poor  to relieve them in distress; liberality in gifts and services to promote public objects of utility-educating like poor children, support of life saving, truthful,  independent media sources of all types and charitable government representatives.

The Lord Jesus Christ doesn’t have a separate set of commandments and moral principles for home, church, work and politics. God is holy! He is a God of justice and judgment. His people are to be people that help execute justice and justice as Abraham and David did and the returning King of Kings Jesus Christ will do. (Genesis 18:19; 2 Samuel 8:15; 1 Chronicles 8:14; Psalm 82:3; Proverbs 21:3; Isaiah 9:7; Isaiah 56:1; Ezekiel 45:9; Jeremiah 23:5; Isaiah 58-59)

Instead of letting the mind of Christ be in us and control our beliefs and opinions, we are trusting in our own understanding and or ignorantly burying our heads like a horse would in a bale of hay; enjoying the fine fruits of Babylon with those we love while reneging on our responsibility to be salt and light in this evil world. At best we are confining religion to the excellent things of Bible reading, prayer and sexually pure and nice relationships with family and friends. We need to understand that it is a false Christ who doesn’t mix his Christianity with business or politics. The living Christ brings moral light and truth to every corner of society because his eyes are open with a heated love for those he has created and suffered to death to redeem.

It might shock us to know that politics isn’t inherently evil. Webster defines politics as follows:

“the science of government; that part of ethics which consists in the regulation and government of a nation or state, for the preservation of its safety, peace and prosperity; comprehending the defense of its existence and rights against foreign control or conquest, the augmentation of its strength and resources, and the protection of its citizens in their rights, with the preservation and improvement of their morals. Politics, as a science or an art, is a subject of vast extent and importance.” 

Politics should be biblical morality, Christ-like ethics, and true religion lived out in the workaday. This obviously isn’t the case, however;  the hypocrites, puppets, liars, whores, thieves and traitors typically representing us in government who are failing to model biblical morality in their decisions are simply living out the lust and evil within their hearts. They are only revealing what they really are in light of God’s truth. Their political performance can be measured against the benchmark of true biblical morality. Their decisions and actions will one day be evaluated by a holy God in accordance with the commands and principles of his Word.

At root, political decisions are moral decisions.  Moral decisions are based upon moral law. Moral law is given by God. God is the judge. We are the judged.  We are responsible for what we know to be morally right. We are responsible to promote good and stand against evil. Children generally know this to be true while educated adults may conveniently rationalize their way around it for self and or mammon sake. Our moral stands for or against their morally based political decisions and actions made by our representatives on our behalf will also be judged by God’s unchanging moral law; his commandments and the true biblical principles.    

Moral politics puts legs to righteous supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, made for all men; for kings, and all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (1 Timothy 2:1-3)

Politics isn’t just about voting for candidates and taking a stand on issues. Our military and other agencies under government control are part of politics. The stands we take for or against their decisions and actions impact human lives around the world for good or evil. We have been given much; we are accountable for much. God desires society be quiet, peaceable, godly and honest. To accomplish this he has given his body on earth, the church, the responsibility to pray, preach the gospel, and salt the earth by living and teaching his truth in hopes of reconciling as many as possible to his moral life, light and truth. 

We pay our military and expect them to be willing to lay down their lives for us. God has paid for our sins and expects us to lay down our lives for him and others. (Romans 12:1; 1 John 3:16) We need to be willing to speak the truth about things political in order to protect and defend human life;  even if it means that we could be killed if as a result. To do so will take courage. Cowards without the courage to do so will share the same eternal hell with the same murderers they were afraid to take a moral stand against. (Revelation 21:8; Matthew 25:31-46)

Conclusion

Our works in the context of social, political, business, and body  of Christ (church) life reveal the truth about our profession of faith; whether we are sheep or a goat; a wheat or a tare.

The heavenly home of truly repentant  professors of faith in Christ is sealed. (Ephesians 1:13; 2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 4:30; Romans 8:5; Galatians 4:6; 1 Peter 1:8). These children of God are presently working out their faith in every arena of their lives; even as they joyfully suffer the consequences of their alien belief system at the hands of hardened hearts. (Philippians 2:12; Hebrews 10:32-39) They are  expressing their faith, though still imperfect,  in sacrificial love toward others in preaching the gospel, sharing personal resources (time, money, property, talents, spiritual gifts, natural abilities) and teaching the truth in love to people. (Galatians 5:6; Matthew 28:19)

Tares and goats, on the other hand, unrepentantly delude themselves in a false spiritual pride over their professed religion; even though they don’t live by the truth in every area of life; including politics and business. They purposely neglect and compromise the commands and principles of God’s word for selfish gain. They close their eyes to evil they have been warned against. They continue to support slavery, injustice, treachery, murder, theft and all sorts of un-Constitutional lawlessness when they should be exposing and confronting it. They hoard resources out of selfishness and fear and only invest or share for the sake of return.  Lukewarm, self-satisfied, proud and content in the riches of Babylon, they are good for nothing when it comes to helping preserve liberty and justice for all in their own workplace, neighborhood, community, state or nation. Instead they rest deluded in the lie that the troops they support are sent overseas to kill enemies of goodness and freedom. They close their eyes to the truth that the muscular weapons and the unending war is ultimately about economic globalization and western financial control;  targeting sovereign Middle Eastern nations for economic rule set export and forcing the integration of all nations into a globally interoperable economic system. (Barnett, 2004)

Unless they anoint and illuminate their morally blind eyes with the healing eye-salve of socio-political and biblical truth they will be judged as useless good for nothings by God; trampled underfoot in their own nation by the tyrannical power of evil.  (Matthew 5:13; Revelation 3:14-22)

The hope and healing of those children of God who will overcome the beast and his world system rests upon repentant faith; not faithless, unrepentant, self-satisfied avoidance.

“…These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:14-22)

Introduction

Whether it’s …

  • a  professing Christian ignoring the feelings, needs and convictions of others because their careless lovelessness masquerades as Christian liberty;
  • a selfishly ambitious, driven,  Pharaoh of Egypt-like employer driving others without consideration for their personal and family needs;
  • an insensitive, harshly critical, competitive person unable to offer edifying praise or encouraging compliment,
  • an emotionally insecure, narcissistic, competitive, sibling rival heartlessly and deceitfully steals what is yours while denying your rights and needs,
  • a proud, self-righteous, impenitent spouse refusing to confess their sin and seek reconciliation;
  • an unmerciful,  perfectionist spouse refusing to forgive what you have sincerely repented of;
  • a greedy pastor threatening the sick, elderly, poor and needy with hellfire if they don’t come to church and support his religious business with their tithe;
  • a blind, greedy, short-sighted local, state and national leader or educator who chooses to ignore the highest human law of these United States, our Constitution, and God’s laws, in order to build their career and wealth;
  • a 501-c3 church leader loving this world system and selling, suppressing and stealing the whole truth and counsel of God in order to increase their personal bottom line;

many Americans today, even professing Christian Americans, seem unable or unwilling to care like they should.

This cremation of care, so to speak,  makes one wonder what the Cremation of Care Ritual Ceremony at Bohemian Grove is really all about? http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/Cremation_of_Care_Bohemian_Grove.htm

Is this ritual merely a call for an end to excessive care that robs a person of health and happiness?

Or is the secret ceremony a diabolical, Luciferic ritual used to cast a spellbinding curse upon it’s recipients?

Is it really an occult ritual offered to the god of this world, empowering evildoers to cast aside natural affection and loving care for others in order to do their own will no matter how wrong it is and how much it will hurt others?

I can’t say for sure, but I do know that putting aside all talk of how many Americans profess to be Christians, the moral fruit of our nation has gone bad. Liberty has gone licentious. We have become a bad tree yielding bad fruit all over the world, and most professing Christians don’t seem to care!

Jesus warns yet we don’t care

Jesus warned us that the end of the world as we know would be preceded by perilous times in which people would be blind to reality and not recognize that the end of their world as they know it was near. (Luke 21:34-36)

The other morning I glanced through my front window panes and enjoyed a glimpse of a clear, Carolina blue sky.

As I looked further across the winter sky, however, I could see long,  broad vapors of smoke making an “X” where they crossed. such exquisite natural beauty designed by our Father in Heaven being brazenly blasphemed by governing powers, ungodly pilots and other secret partners in criminal activity against a Holy God.

This sight brought to mind Joel’s prophecy concerning the appearance of “vapors of smoke” in the sky in the last days before the great and the terrible day of the Lord Jesus Christ comes. (Joel 2:21-32; Acts 2:16-21)

The word vapor used by the KJV translators in Acts 2:19 is defined as “substances resembling smoke, which sometimes fill the atmosphere or a visible fluid floating in the atmosphere” while  smoke is defined as “the exhalation, visible vapor or substance that escapes or is expelled in combustion from the substance burning”.  I highly suspect these vapors of smoke are the “vapors of smoke” Joel warned were signs that the end of the world as we know it is in fact really near.

As the morning progressed we watched the spraying by the planes continue until the sky had been converted from its naturally beautiful Carolina blue to a milky white haze reminiscent of 1960’s LA smog.

The Raleigh weather forecaster doesn’t care seem to care about the air that he, his family, friends and other residents of NC have to breathe.  He simply hides his lying heart behind his credentials and calls the vapors of smoke “high clouds”.  What is that can enable an educated, respected professional to lie to his audience that this aerosol spraying polluting God’s creation is simply natural cloudiness.  http://weatherwars.info/

Why doesn’t he care about the future of his state?

History warns yet we don’t care

What is that is causing people to support gun confiscation when history shows that death by government follows the confiscation of weapons. http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2012/12/29/back-to-the-future-what-history-teaches-about-gun-confiscations/

How can we not care that a legal Constitutional right to bear arms in order to preserve life and liberty is on the brink of extinction? Why don’t they care about the soldiers of the past that died to give us that right? Why don’t they care about the future freedom of the nation?

Many a professing Christian will violate the protective,  higher,  legal,  Constitutional rights of others while submitting to useless, even potentially harmful, organizational procedures set in place by their employers.

A 2013 case in point; my family was shopping in a second hand thrift store run as a Christian ministry. A customer was carrying a revolver for which he had a legal permit to carry and a second amendment right to carry.

My wife overheard a conversation between a store employee and the man. The employee told the man that someone had complained that he was carrying a gun. The man politely told the employee that he had a permit and there was no sign in the store telling him he couldn’t carry it. The employee told him that he would have to leave because of the complaint because a customer didn’t feel safe with him carrying.

My wife said she stepped in at that point in their conversation and told the employee that it works both ways.  His carrying a gun makes her feel safer because if someone started shooting in the store, he could defend us. She also reminded the employee that the man has a second amendment right to keep and bear arms.  The customer echoed her tune, however, the employee simply denied him that right and asked him a final time to leave while telling him he was still welcome to shop there in the future without his gun.

The message to the body of Christ in America in all this is that our Lord doesn’t want us to obey any procedure or law that,  if obeyed, violates the protections of the highest law of our land under His law, the Constitution of the United States of America.

The body of Christ in America will obey un-Constitutional dictates to avoid the  painful consequences of refusal to submit.  When organizational or government procedure, mandate or law conflicts with higher Constitutional law, I believe the Lord would have us obey the Constitution, even if we have to suffer for our obedience, if obeying will protect and defend the life and welfare of people.  Jesus angrily rebuked the religious Pharisees who rigidly obeyed useless laws but disregarded the higher laws of God that were beneficial to life. (Matthew 23:23-24; Matthew 12:1-8)

I could go on and on about things that most of our leaders and the masses don’t care about but should: the 911 lie and its unjust, illegal, un-Constitutional acts and murderous wars;  illegal immigrants flooding our land and stealing from us; destructive secret societies; morally destructive audio and video productions; United Nations Agenda 21; the depopulation agenda disguised as health care; suppression of biblical truth and free academic inquiry and debate in education; poisoning of our food and water supplies;  the needs of the honest and responsible poor among us; protection of unborn life; excessive taxation without representation; suppression of practically helpful and economically advantageous technologies by the powers; deceitful media mind programming; destructive behavioral drugging of our children; unwarranted, illegal, un-Constitutional  surveillance, unarmed public schools sitting as targets for armed evildoers and crazies; … .

Conclusion

I support and engage in political action and the information war as well as teaching prophetic truth. At the same time, however, I am acutely aware that battles for souls, truth, liberty, and justice for all in families, communities, churches, schools, and can only be won “on our knees”.

It isn’t rational that people don’t care about some of the things that they don’t care about. Their carelessness is a spiritual problem and their curse can only be broken by the power of God made available to the overcoming repentant righteous in Christ Jesus through the prayer of faith.

No doubt the enemies of the righteous are working tirelessly to get what they want out of this life. After all they have no inheritance in heaven to look forward to;  although some of them have deceived themselves to think they do. Forgive them Father, they know not what they do or they wouldn’t do it because it is so foolishly shortsighted and selfish.

All that the ungodly unholy have is the space God has given them to repent and turn to him within. When that time is gone, and only God knows that time, they will have to account for all the wrongs they have done to others in this life. They will have to account for all the charity they lost. They will have sealed their everlasting fate in the lake of fire unless they turn from their sins and truly receive the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is a really a battle against unseen enemies that must be won in prayer; real prayer; not the pop prayer permeating the lukewarm bought and paid for state owned 501-c3 evangelical churches; but prayer from righteous, sober and loving lives with strong crying and tears unto God who is able to save from death. Humble prayer that Gods will be done on his earth to deliver us from evil. (Hebrews 5:7; 1 Peter 3:7-12; James 5:16-20; 1 Peter 4:7; Matthew 21:12-21; Ephesians 6:10-18; Acts 6:1-4; Mark 9:17-29; 1 Timothy 2:1-5; Luke 11:1-4)

God is our hope that they care. Let there increasingly be “prayer that they care.”

God has, does and will respond to sincere prayers of faith.

He is a God that cares as the following biblical accounts teach us.

Job’s captivity to the schemes of Satan was ended when he prayed for friends who were acting more like enemies. (Job 42)

Jonah was saved when he repented and prayed. (Jonah 1-2)

The people of Nineveh repented and prayed and God chose not to destroy them. (Jonah 3)

The of righteous Moses curtailed God’s judgments upon Egypt in spite of the insincere remorse of the Pharaoh over his sins. (Exodus 8:8-14; Exodus 9:-Exodus 10:17-19)

The loving and merciful intercessory prayers of holy Moses on behalf of God’s idolatrous people who were provoking God to wrath against them restrained judgment. (Numbers 11:1-2; Deuteronomy 9)

Hezekiah’s prayers extended his life. (Isaiah 38:1-5)

Jesus taught that God responds to persistent and urgent prayers of faith. (Luke 18:1-7; Luke 11:5-13; Mark 7:24-30)

Let us pray for a resurrection of care in the body of Christ in 2013.

Our Father:

Let there be more care about God’s feelings than our own;  more care about watching and praying than dancing and prancing; more care about warning than pleasing; more care for spiritual meat than milk; more care for righteousness than wickedness; more care for truth than error; more care for truth than tradition; more care about thinking than drinking; more care about God’s truth than our opinions; more care about others than ourselves; more care about biblical thought than media programming; more care about biblical accounts than Hollywood movies; more care about being controlled by God’s Spirit than media programming; more care about those in authority than those in Hollywood; more care to listen than speak; more care to give than receive; more care for what God says children need rather than what we want for them or they want for themselves;  more care for those in need than those in greed, more care for freedom than security, more care for prayer than play, more care about things that matter than things that entertain; more care for holiness than pleasure; more care for reality than fantasy; more care for truth than popularity; more care for wisdom than fun; more care for health than comfort; more care for quality than efficiency; more care for integrity than acceptance by others; more care for pleasing God than man; more care about what God knows than about what man knows; more care for unity under truth than division under error; more care about self denial than self indulgence; …

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,  Amen.

Introduction

I want to preface this article by stating that although it makes political references, it’s not motivated by an allegiance to any political movement or ideology. I believe in the God who inspired the Holy Scriptures and in moral government.

This isn’t about defeating Willard Romney or Barry Sotero Barack Hussein Obama. It’s not about electing the next great “banker bartender” or winning the rigged match of conservative right against liberal left. It’s ultimately about how mere men can suddenly and unknowingly fall prey to evil, invisible forces greater than themselves.

Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul and his son, Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul have been the focal points of the Campaign for Liberty movement. Campaign For Liberty stands in opposition to the moral views and beliefs espoused by Mitt Romney as revealed by Romney’s political record found at http://www.massresistance.org/romney/

Following the Bilderberg Group meeting held in Virginia in early June, however, Dr. Rand Paul has endorsed Mitt Romney as the Republican Party nominee for President. Video of his interaction with independent media interviewers show him displaying a 180 degree like change of attitude.

http://www.infowars.com/rand-paul-confronted-on-mitt-romney-endorsement/

Rand Paul has tried to justify compromising his allegiance to the principals of true Constitutional government he once zealously espoused by dogmatically claiming that “there are definitely things in between good and evil”.

“An endorsement doesn’t change any of your philosophy…. There are areas of agreement and if we ignore those completely, I think people want to simplify things to characterize everybody as either being good or evil, and there are definitely things in between good and evil.”

Let us now begin our look at what lies between good and evil.

Why not Romney?

Pastor Chuck Baldwin has concisely summarized why an endorsement of Romney is an act of moral compromise in an interview with Alex Jones 6/13/2012. (Nimmo, 2012)

Dr. Baldwin said attacks on our precious constitutional liberties and the implementation of an Orwellian high-tech surveillance state can be directly attributed to the foreign policy decisions of the global elite and their ruling political establishment.

Ron Paul consistently opposed this foreign policy agenda on constitutional grounds. Rand Paul’s endorsement of a man who would continue and expand this agenda – as Obama continued and expanded directives handed down to Bush – represents a serious and possibly fatal blow to Ron Paul’s long and unwavering attempt to rekindle the republic and its core principles enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Baldwin underscores a prescient fact: Rand Paul’s endorsement of Romney translates into direct support for the neocon foreign policy agenda of war waged against Syria and Iran. It signals that the younger Paul will support a destructive and limitless war waged against manufactured enemies. Rand Paul will also accept and work to implement the police state at home that is a closely related and necessary corollary of the war on terror. His endorsement is at its very core a betrayal of Ron Paul’s legacy and his attempt to restore the republic. It downgrades if not wrecks the Paul name as a standard bearer for liberty.

Rand’s endorsement destroys any hope that he will step up and continue his father’s long and determined battle now that the elder Paul is winding down his congressional career. As Baldwin points out, Rand Paul is in the back pocket of the establishment. Like virtually every other member of Congress, he will be used as a prop in an ongoing war of evil and destruction that will ultimately destroy America.

A vote for Romney is clearly a vote for a continuation of the  incremental expansion of un-Constitutional and immoral domestic and foreign policies currently operative within the financial-military-industrial force triangle controlling America. Proof of this control is revealed in the common core of financial powers such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan & Chase & Co.; Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup Inc. seen funding both Obama’s 2008 and Romney’s 2012 campaigns. (Politicians & Elections Top Contibutors, 2012)

Cultural accommodation works

Should we really be surprised that Rand Paul has apparently chosen to accommodate the Republican Party?

Cultural accommodation has been the name of the temporal success game for some time. Purpose driven churches, organizations and institutions flagrantly violate biblical principles and commands by doing things God wouldn’t do because it works. The Freemasonic based “the ends justify the means” philosophy dominates dupes who think it wise to compromise truth for success sake.

It’s possible that Rand Paul feels that counterfeit support for Romney is his ticket to return the Republican Party to its Constitutional roots. If this is true, why would the Republican Party leadership or anyone else for that matter ever trust him again? He has betrayed the values of his Dad and hypocritically flip-flopped to yoke himself to someone he recently labeled a flip-flopper. Why would Rand Paul ever think that the majority of his supporters will ever trust him after this change of clothes? His thinking is foolishly naive, illogical, immoral and unbiblical. His rapid change of moral direction makes it seem as if the wicked controllers have held a gun to his head and said to him, “you will walk in this way or you will die”. It’s my opinion, however, that Rand Paul isn’t being threatened into line by the wicked.

Thelema

Logical thinking has become increasingly rare; moral thinking even rarer,  and biblical thinking is now nearly extinct. The apostasy is about complete and the antichrist is about to be revealed in my opinion.

Scripture teaches us that our thought controls our speech and behavior. It also teaches us that Satan battles for control of our thinking so that he can direct us in paths of unrighteousness for the sake of his unholy name and his blasphemous earthly kingdom. (Matthew 4:1-11; Ephesians 2:2-3; Colossians 2:8; 1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 2:16)

A deceitfully wise and artful warrior, Satan employs both overt and covert strategies. (Romans 12:2; 1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11-14; 1 Peter 1:13-16)

Underlying the current trend in American thought is the blasphemous, stealth, covert undercurrent of Thelema.

What is this Thelema? We haven’t heard about it on the news have we?

Thelema is the filthy religious excrement of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Crowley, also known by his beloved as the Great Beast and the most evil man ever, was a black magic magician. He was also an asset of British Intelligence.

Crowley’s Law of Thelema teaches that there is no god or religion but man. The idea that man can be god has been Satan’s lie to humanity since the first days in the Garden of Eden. (Genesis 3:1-5)

The chief rules or duties of those who accept and embark upon the so-called “Great Work” of spreading Crowley’s New Religion of Thelema are as follows:

  • Find yourself as the center of your own universe.
  • Explore the nature and powers of your being-be initiated by discovering true self.
  • Develop balance in your faculties-be strong, lust, enjoy all things of sense.
  • Contemplate your own nature and the true purpose of your total being.
  • Simply express your “true will” and your plans to manipulate energies you control
  • Extend to the utmost the dominion of your consciousness in controlling energies.
  • Don’t let others interfere with your own true will.
  • Don’t restrict yourself in any way while remaining devoted to your “true will“.

Thelemic thought parallels the antichristian philosophy taught in exterior occult orders such as the Astron Argon, the Gnostic Catholic Church, Thelemic Golden Dawn, Ordo Templi Orientis , Ordo Antichristianus Illuminati, Rosicrucian Order, Theosophical Society, and the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Free Masonry.

These Free Masonic based orders teach that “every man or woman is a star in their own orbit, the center of their own universe“. They believe in Crowley’s Law of Thelema which teaches, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will.“

Those that practice Thelema believe that “nothing is true, everything is permitted”. They work to free individuals from what they falsely believe is neurotic slavery to the god of Christianity. They think the only evil is restriction.

Crowley intended to emphasize that humanity’s greatest right and most pressing need is total freedom of thought, action and belief. According to Crowley, “Do What Thou Wilt” doesn’t mean “do what you please”. Although this degree of emancipation is implied, Thelema doesn’t teach a priori that any course of action is “wrong.” Instead it emphasizes that every man and woman has an absolute right to do his or her own true will.

In other words, we find in Thelema that there is “something between good and evil”!

Conclusion

The unholy wind of Thelema blows in the opposite direction from God’s holy thought. Thelema doesn’t consider man to be inherently sinful and not good by nature. Thelema seeks to remain unrestricted by absolute truth. Its evil stems from self-will, is watered by demonic power,  and flourishes through self-deception and denial of truth.

Thelema is detached from the real world; the world of ultimate reality. This reality is ruled by one currently invisible, morally pure, totally just, unswervingly faithful, supremely intelligent, all-knowing, all-powerful,  King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the God and Savior Jesus Christ.

I’m certainly not accusing Rand Paul of being a follower of Aleister Crowley and Thelema, however, I believe that his compromise with evil could be the fruit of Free Masonic and Thelemic thought current permeating the world system. (Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 6:12; 1 John 5:19)

In endorsing Romney,  Rand Paul has chosen to do his will. He feels that his decision to support Romney registers in some unknown moral region between good and evil. This implies that he believes that the totality of what Romney stands for doesn’t matter morally. Once again, this thinking, as incorrect as it is, isn’t surprising when we consider that many professing Christian pastors refuse to address moral issues underlying the issues of public policy. Such men pride themselves in staying out of politics. What they have really done, however, is exchanged truth for a lie. This is because they have pledged silence on issues of public policy in exchange for the many tax benefits  of IRS 501-c3 religious organization incorporation. These hirelings are leading the sheep to the slaughter by the truth they are withholding. They are doing their own will while professing to do God’s will. They exhort their followers to pay taxes while they themselves pay none because of the 501-c3 exemptions they enjoy due to their adulterous affair with the anti-Christian state. They do their own will with their  “if it’s free it’s for me” mentality. This thinking is just the opposite of the pastoral approach of the Apostle Paul. Paul. Paul chose to support himself financially. He refused regular financial support from others in order to protect the integrity of his life and message. (1 Corinthians 9; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15)

What is the real problem underlying this compromise with truth?

We might be surprised to know that God’s moral temperature scale runs from cold to hot. In between cold and hot lies the worst of places; the lukewarm spiritual state. Satan uses false religion like Thelema as one tool among many to move people into the lukewarm state. The lukewarm state seems to parallel that thing between good and evil that Rand Paul was unconsciously alluding to. (Revelation 3:14-22)

The word lukewarm refers to a spiritual state in which a person becomes mentally blind to the lack of the fruit of the Spirit and Christian virtue in their life. Their work isn’t motivated by sincere Christian love for God and man. It’s driven by a selfish love of the world and its pleasures.

Self-sufficient and satisfied with worldly riches and pleasures, the lukewarm lack the genuine fruit of the Holy Spirit that would empower one in passionate pursuit of eternal riches, truth, righteousness and holiness. The lukewarm hypocritically tolerate and enjoy evil on a habitual basis instead of utterly detesting and avoiding it. Self-satisfied with earthly riches and pleasures, they’re blind and insensitive to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of others. (I John 2:15 -17; James 4:4)

A tell-tale sign of spiritual lukewarmness is a boastful, self-confident trust in one’s own abilities and resources to enable a person to acquire the things needed to sustain a selfish lifestyle. The lukewarm rationalize doing wrong in their mission to do good because they trust in themselves rather than God.

A lukewarm person lives to satisfy their lust for pleasure. They won’t tolerate anyone interfering with their will. They’re thinking, speech, appearance and interests are conformed to this age instead of the eternal values and desires of the Lord as expressed in his word. Lukewarm hearts view the spiritually hot as extremists, imbalanced and even hopeless people who they feel just can’t seem to moderate their beliefs well enough to blend well with the world.

The lukewarm trapped between good and evil must repent and be transformed in their minds by the word of God before the Lord vomits them out of his mouth for their hypocritical, dead profession of faith.

The Lord Jesus Christ stands knocking at the door of the lukewarm heart asking it to turn away from its idols, favorite sins and sinful pleasures in order to love and follow him wholeheartedly. (Romans 12:1-3,9)

May we hear and obey the word of the Lord, avoid Thelemic and other anti-Christian philosophy, and come out of that lukewarm state found somewhere between good and evil.

Introduction

Professing Christians are raving over 24 year old Denver Bronco quarterback Tim Tebow’s public confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This craze serves as a distraction from the reality that America has been officially declared to be a Nazi-like dictatorship with the POTUS signing the traitorous National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) while world war between global nuclear powers brews in the Strait of Hormuz. (sources:  http://www.debka.com/article/21648/ ; http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=28652; http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=28441)

Tebow has become famous for “Tebowing” or falling to one knee in prayer like retired MLB pitcher Orel Hershsisher did years ago.  Tebow’s completion of 10 passes for 316 yards to average 31.6 years per completion is being taken by some as a sign that the rapture of the church will occur on January 28, 2012.  You can check that nonsense out at the following link:  http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1753843/pg1.

Tim Tebow is also being sold as America’s hope for spiritual revival. Kelly O’Connell of Canada Free Press offers the following comments in his January 15, 2012 article titled “Will Tim Tebow spark an American Revival? found at http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/43910 

“Yet, the real Tebow story gripping America is not his athletic prowess, but instead his apparent humility and Christian witness which appears to have no parallel in modern America.

After receiving a few emails promoting Tebow’s faith, I decided to do a little research on his life. It wasn’t hard to confirm that he boldly proclaims Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Setting aside all debate over how a holy God might feel about his children playing NFL football in his name; it also wasn’t hard to find out that Tebow is not a poster boy for true spiritual revival in the body of Christ.

Catalyst for spiritual revival and moral reformation?

First, as an unproven NFL rookie in 2010, Tebow reported late to the Denver Bronco training camp. Tebow was putting his desire for more money ahead of the training needs of the Bronco team over something to the ungodly tune of $12 million over 5 years.  I can remember a day in professional sports when “hold-outs” were considered to be like selfish brats or, worse yet, like outlaws. My, my, my how we have fallen! (source: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/thehuddle/post/2010/07/espn-tim-tebow-seeking-more-money-from-broncos-as-team-begins-workouts-without-him/1)

When we filter this financial decision through the lens of Colossians 3:1-6 found below; as well as other verses regarding selfishness, greed, love of money, covetousness and worldliness, it’s obvious that this young man isn’t ready to be a  true catalyst for spiritual revival. The “looking out for #1” attitude he displayed in holding out for more money is typical of what is really wrong with America today.   

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Secondly, I didn’t have to search much further to find that he has become the poster boy for Jockey underwear. http://www.onlygators.com/07/27/2010/tim-tebow-signs-endorsement-deal-with-jockey/.

If Tebow is sincere in his faith; and I do hope and pray that he is, I don’t think that anyone could honestly believe that the Holy Spirit of God is leading Tim to show off  the temple of God in underwear. Tebow may think it’s normal to be like Michael Jordan, the NBA icon who modeled Hanes underwear; but do you really think that Jesus Christ wants this chick magnet to strut around in underwear in God’s name tempting woman of all ages to lust. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, I certainly agree that the body of Christ is in critical need of moral reformation and spiritual revival. At this point in history, however, Tim Tebow is part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

Tebow may be winsome, bold and sincere. His unwise decisions regarding NFL contract negotiations and Jockey underwear modeling show that he isn’t yet sufficiently dead to himself,  or to worldly antichristian values,  to be useful to God as an instrument of moral reformation and spiritual revival. Instead, he now serves as a potential stumbling block to the body of Christ; another in a long list of popular Christian icons who help babes in Christ feel it’s normal or even cool to say they believe in Jesus Christ. When trouble or persecution comes because of their faith, these babes fall away because their faith is rooted in the icon rather than the word of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 Introduction

The Late Great United States (2009) by Pastor Mark Hitchcock, PHD is a certified conservative evangelical pre-tribulation rapture prophecy authority’s response to some of today’s most commonly asked questions concerning America such as:

  • Is America mentioned in prophecy?
  • Could the Antichrist come from America?
  • Why do “they” hate America?
  • What is the secret of America’s greatness?

What are his answers to these questions?

In short, Pastor Hitchcock believes that America’s support of Israel is both the secret of her greatness and the reason why “they” hate America. He doesn’t think that the role of the United States is specifically addressed in the Bible, however, if it was, he feels that she has the best chance of being found listed among the “young lions” of Tarshish  of Ezekiel 38:13. He believes that it’s unlikely that the Antichrist could be an American.  

Although various things Pastor Hitchcock believes such as America’s support of Israel is both the secret of her greatness and the reason why “they” hate us can ultimately be proven false, this article will only address his responses to the question as to whether or not America could be “Babylon the Great”.  

Is America mentioned in prophecy?

Pastor Mark Hitchcock relies upon logical fallacy instead of thorough research and biblical exegesis in dismissing the possibility that America is Babylon the Great.

Dr. Hitchcock assumes Babylon is Satan’s capital city on earth because Babylon was the capital city of Nimrod; the first world ruler, and the capital city of the first four Gentile world empires to rule over Jerusalem. Because of Babylon’s past role as the capital city of world rulers, he circularly reasons that Babylon will be resurrected to become Antichrist’s capital city. He employs Revelation 14:8; 16:19; 17:5; 18:2; 18:10; 18:21 as proof texts supporting this faulty logic. He then concludes that America can’t be Babylon the Great because God will destroy Antichrist’s capital city Babylon at the end of the seven-year Tribulation period. He believes there is no indication in the text that “Babylon” is to be taken symbolically or figuratively so it must refer to Babylon, Iraq.

The following paragraphs discuss the errors in this teaching and destroy the foundational arguments Pastor Hitchcock uses to justify his belief that Babylon the Great refers to Babylon, Iraq.   

Revelation 17:12-18 explains that 10 kings will destroy the great city Babylon the Great BEFORE they present their kingdom to the beast. This prophecy proves that the unification of the fourth and final global kingdom of Daniel 7:19 to be led by Antichrist occurs after that great city “Babylon the Great” of Revelation 17:5 is destroyed; not before as Mark Hitchcock asserts. 

It is true that Revelation 16:19 foretells of “great Babylon” receiving the wrath of God. “Great Babylon”, however, describes a different kingdom than “Babylon the Great” of Revelation 17:12-18. How can we know that great Babylon is a different entity than Babylon the Great?

Revelation 16:10-13 shows that both the beast kingdom and the false prophet are in power when “great Babylon” of Revelation 16:19 receives God’s wrath. On the other hand, according to Revelation 17:12-18, “Babylon the Great” was destroyed before the kingdom was given to the beast. “Great Babylon” of Revelation 16 refers to the fourth and final global beast kingdom of Daniel 7:19. This global Babylon is unified under Antichrist after the sovereign “city“or nation-state “Babylon the Great” is destroyed.

Great Babylon of Revelation 16:19, the final global kingdom of Daniel 7:19, is also referred to as the “beast out of the sea kingdom” in Revelation 13:1-10.  This global Babylon receives the wrath of God when the Lord Jesus Christ returns at Armageddon to destroy this beast kingdom according to prophecies like Revelation 16:10-21; Revelation 19:11-21; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; Zechariah 14; Joel 3 and others.

The fact that “great Babylon” of Revelation 16:19 and “Babylon the Great” of Revelation 17:5 are different entities. Because of this Babylon must be interpreted figuratively or symbolically; not literally as Pastor Hitchcock believes.

Pastor Hitchcock fails to see that Daniel 11:45 indicates that the final capital city of Antichrist where the global tyranny of Antichrist will come to its end will be located “between the seas in the glorious holy mountain”. This is a description of beautiful Mount Zion in Jerusalem, Israel.

 Although it’s possible that Antichrist will establish temporary headquarters in Babylon before moving his palace to Jerusalem; Mount Zion is certainly a far cry from war torn, radioactive depleted uranium particle laden Babylon, Iraq isn’t it? 

 Conclusion

The preceding paragraphs have demolished arguments used by Mark Hitchcock to dismiss the possibility that America is Babylon the Great.  

In dismissing this possibility, however, one closes their eyes and ears to what God has to say in Revelation 17-18 about the present character of the U.S. and our relationship to her.  This blindness affects the ability of a person to discern the moral character of U.S. public policy and to pray effectively for our nation and those in positions of government service.  

Understanding that God is addressing us in Revelation 17-18 as “Babylon the Great” helps us receive the truth that the United States government is effectively ruled by an elite group running our largest international corporations. It becomes easier to believe that these people cycle through a revolving door between government policy making positions, Wall Street financial firms, Defense/Security firms and other influential corporate sectors controlling media, elections, politicians, and military. (Perkins, 2007)

It explains why Democratic President Barack H. Obama continued warmongering like Republican George W. Bush did. It helps us understand that since the days of Andrew Jackson financial powers have owned the U.S. government and U.S. Presidents have become gangsters for large international corporations, Wall Street and international bankers. It believable that wealthy elites have shaped U.S. policies and reaped great profit from the wars they have supported because these elite dollars fuel American foreign policy. (Rothkopf, 2008)

It’s not so surprising that America administers globalization as its military policeman by keeping integrated Core nations connected to the global economy and using her force to spread globalization to partially integrated Seam and disconnected non-integrated Gap states. (Barnett, 2005) 

Revelation 17:5 says Babylon the Great is the mother of harlots and abominations. This idolatrous, whorish nation-state serves to force the nations of the world to integrate their sovereign economies with a predatory global economic system. This idolatrous, antichristian system will eventually demand the life of all who refuse to identify or mark themselves as an integrated member of it. (Revelation 13:15-18)

In 2009 when The Late Great United States was first released, Pastor Hitchcock overlooked that the United States was serving as the mother of Iraq in bringing that nation into the global economic system in accordance with The Security Agreement (SOFA). 

 The U.S. invaded Iraq when it was considered to be outside the greater core of nations already integrated within the rule set of the global capitalistic system.

According to The Strategic Framework Agreement (SFA) now serving as a foundation for a long-term, bilateral U.S.-Iraqi relationship, the U.S. will continue to act as the mother of Iraq nurturing its full integration into the rule set of the global economic system.

The United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Commerce, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice and Department of Transportation, Department of the Treasury, United States Agency of International Development are actively partnering with the Iraqi government to protect U.S. interests in Iraq and the Middle East, support Iraqi sovereignty and help fully integrate Iraq into the global economy. (U.S. Department of State, 2011)

The massive U.S. Embassy in Iraq pictured below stands as proof of the commitment that U.S. government agencies have made to support Iraq’s development in education, energy, trade, health, culture, law enforcement, and judicial cooperation.

With the incorrect biblical thinking underlying Mark Hitchcock’s belief about Babylon the Great exposed, it follows that Mark Hitchcock and his followers need to undertake a truly independent, Holy Spirit taught study solving the mystery, Babylon the Great. Such work is essential in light of the current desire of the United States to force Middle Eastern countries to integrate with globalization’s Core. This idolatrous, covetous interest in Middle Eastern oil and the luxurious wealth and power its control brings us threatens to lead us into a disastrous World War III type scenario. It further provokes a Holy God to anger against these fallen United States for our murderous violence. It moves us ever closer to that fatal hour foretold in Revelation 17-18 when the U.S. will reap the violence she’s sown forging an antichristian New World Order on behalf of the wealthy elite controllers of the United States of America.
