Biblical typology in America: A warning

The Bible is full of a form of prophesy called typology.  Typology is the study and interpretation of types and symbols.  Isaiah and other prophets describe the typology of a corrupt nation along with God’s judgment and punishment if repentance is not sought.

The seventy nations, led by America, are now firmly in the typology of the corrupt nation of Judah and and the judgement phase has begun.  Think about America and your country as I follow the fall and Judgment of Judah and apply this to the current state of corruption engulfing nations.

How does one identify a corrupt nation?

Firstly, Isaiah chapter 5 describes the sins of a corrupt nation, specifically of Judah.  But Judah’s sin is not unique to them as a nation.  Reading through the list, one can clearly see that this is a universal list of any corrupt nation.

The sin of injustice (Is 5:7):

“He [God] expected a crop of justice, but instead he found oppression. He expected to find righteousness, but instead he heard cries of violence.”

The sin of greed: (5:8)

“You buy up property so others have no place to live. Your homes are built on great estates so you can be alone in the midst of the earth!”

The sin of pleasure-seeking: (5:12)

“They furnish wine and lovely music at their grand parties — lyre and harp, tambourine and flute — but they never think about the LORD or notice what He is doing.”

The sin of blasphemy: (5:19)

“They even mock the Holy One of Israel and dare the Lord to punish them. ‘Hurry up and punish us, O Lord,’ they say. ‘We want to see what you can do!'”

The sin of moral perversion: (5:20)

“They say that what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.”

The sin of intellectual pride: (5:21)

“Woe to those who are wise and shrewd in their own eyes!”

The sin of intemperance: (5:22)

“Woe to those who are “heroes” when it comes to drinking and boast about the liquor they can hold.”

The final sin identified by Isaiah was political corruption: (5:23)

“They take bribes to pervert justice, letting the wicked go free and putting innocent men in jail.”

When applied to the corruption in America, the list is deeply disturbing and clearly describes what is occurring in our country.  I was deeply grieved when I saw these parallels.  I hope you are as well.

Isaiah concluded his list with a summary statement that identified the fundamental reason for all the sins: (5:24)

“…they have thrown away the laws of God and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.”

  So the prelude is a falling away from the knowledge of the Word.  As we know, the “Bible” has been under attack in America for several decades, but the tide is turning against us as more and more people believe the lie and succumb to the corruption.  And less and less know about it because fewer and fewer read the Bible or get exposed in any form to what it says.

To recap, the eight sins of Judah that Isaiah reported were: Injustice, Greed, Pleasure-Seeking, Blasphemy, Moral Perversion, Intellectual Pride, Intemperance and Political Corruption. All of which he asserted were produced by contempt for the Word of God.

Isaiah also reported that all his calls to repentance were met with scoffing and frivolity (22:12-13):

“The Lord God called you to repent, to weep and mourn, to shave your heads in sorrow for your sins, and to wear clothes made of sackcloth to show your remorse. But instead, you sing and dance and play, and feast and drink. ‘Let us eat, drink, and be merry,’ you say: ‘What’s the difference, for tomorrow we die.'”

Isaiah responded to this crass indifference with a strong warning: (5:26-30)

“God will send a signal to the nations far away, whistling to those at the ends of the earth, and they will come racing toward Jerusalem…Their arrows are sharp; their bows are bent; sparks fly from their horses’ hoofs, and the wheels of their chariots spin like the wind. They roar like lions and pounce upon the prey.”

Jeremiah’s Report

Sixty years later, God called a young priest named Jeremiah to do the same thing he had requested of Isaiah. He asked him to go forth and make an inventory of the sins of Judah.

When he reported back to God, he listed the same sins as Isaiah, but he added three new ones.

The first was immorality.

This, of course, had been hinted at in Isaiah’s accusation of moral perversion. But Jeremiah got specific: (5:7-8)

He declared that God had fed His people until they were full, but they thanked Him by “committing adultery and lining up at the brothels.” He added, “They are well-fed, lusty stallions, each neighing for his neighbor’s wife.”

The second sin Jeremiah detected was religious corruption: (5:30-31)

“A horrible and shocking thing has happened in this land — the prophets give false prophecies, and the priests rule with an iron hand. Worse yet, my people like it that way!”

The third sin he added to the growing list was closed minds: (6:10-11)

He declared the people do not listen when God speaks: “Their ears are closed, and they cannot hear. They scorn the word of the Lord. They don’t want to listen at all.”

Jeremiah then concluded with three powerful summary statements:

“Their faces are harder than rock” (5:3).

“They have a stubborn and rebellious heart” (5:23).

“They do not know how to blush” (6:15).

Jeremiah issued a called to repentance, coupled with a stern warning (6:26):

“Oh, my people, dress yourselves in burlap and sit among the ashes. Mourn and weep bitterly, as for the loss of an only son. For suddenly the destroying armies will be upon you!”

But the people of Judah were so caught up in rebellion that they refused to repent, and they scoffed at the warning, responding by shouting, “The Temple, the Temple, the Temple!” (Jeremiah 7:4).

What they meant by this taunt was that they did not believe God would ever destroy their nation and their capital city because the Shekinah Glory of God rested in their Temple.

God’s Response: Remedial Judgments

Meanwhile, while God was speaking through prophetic voices, calling the people to repentance and warning them of an ultimate judgment, He was simultaneously inflicting the nation with remedial judgments.

These are judgments designed to humble people and motivate them to think with an eternal perspective.

Before they entered the Promised Land, God had warned them through Moses that if they were not faithful to His commandments, they would suffer remedial judgments to call them to repentance. These judgments are listed in detail in Deuteronomy 28, and they include such things as crop failures, rebellion of teenagers, an epidemic of divorce, rampant disease, confusing government policies, defeats by enemies, foreign domination and the ultimate judgment — exile from the land.

But the people of Judah were set in their sins, and Jeremiah therefore declared that their “wound was incurable” (Jeremiah 10:19).

The result was the Babylonian conquest of the nation and its capital in 586 BC, resulting in most of the people being carried away into captivity.

God in His mercy allowed them to return 70 years later, but during the next 400 years, they persisted in their sins, and so, in 70 AD, God allowed them to be conquered by the Romans and dispersed worldwide, just as He had warned.

This sordid history of a richly blessed people rebelling against their God who had blessed them so overwhelmingly is summed up in two very sad verses in which you can almost hear the Lord weeping (2 Chronicles 36:15-16):

15) And the Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them again and again by His messengers, because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place;

16) but they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against His people, until there was no remedy.

How God Deals With A Rebellious Nation

From this history of Judah, we can draw some conclusions about how God deals with a rebellious nation which He has so richly blessed.

1) He raises up prophetic voices to call the nation to repentance. And, if there is no repentance,

2) He places remedial judgments upon the nation.

3) If the nation repents, He forgives and blesses. But if there is no repentance,

4) God destroys the nation when its rebellion becomes entrenched, reaching a point of no return.

This point of no return occurs when “the wound becomes incurable.” Nahum declared that Nineveh had “an incurable wound” (Nahum 3:19). Jeremiah used the same terminology with reference to Judah (Jeremiah 30:12).

How does the United States fit this typology?

Now, let’s apply these principles to the United States.

I believe God raised up this nation with a dual the purpose: 1) to use our great natural resources and technical ingenuity to spread the Gospel all over the world and 2) to shepherd the new Israel.

As we fulfilled His first purpose, He poured out blessings upon us — blessings like unparalleled freedom and prosperity and immense power, worldwide influence and — the greatest blessing of all — sharing the Gospel with the world. He even gave us the blessing of serving as the key nation in the re-birthing and nurturing of the nation of Israel.  We are still fulfilling our second purpose, but when we turn our back on Israel we will be done.  

We became enamored with our wealth and power, and in due course we began turning our back on God.

The Almighty Dollar became our god.

Greed became our motivator.

Gambling became a national pastime.

Sex became our obsession.

We became the world’s largest consumer of illegal drugs.

We kicked God out of our schools.

We legalized abortion.

We endorsed moral perversion.

And we became the moral polluter of planet earth through our violent, immoral and blasphemous movies and television programs.

To demonstrate the rapid collapse of our moral society, eighty years ago this was the norm in America:
Abortionists were sent to prison.
Pregnancy out of wedlock was thought of as scandalous.
Homosexuality was considered unnatural and immoral.
Pornography was despised as a perversion.
Drugs were something you bought at a drug store.
Marriage was sacred.
Living together was taboo.
Divorce was a disgrace.
Same-sex marriage was beyond even the wildest and most depraved imagination.
Homemaking was honored, and day care was provided by mothers in their homes. Child abuse was almost unheard of.
Ladies did not curse or smoke.
The word,”Damn,” was considered flagrant language in a movie.

The first major motion picture to use a curse word was Gone with the Wind in 1939. The movie ended with the phrase, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” In 2013 a film called The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo de Caprio, had the “f-word” in it 544 times in 180 minutes!

In 1997, the veteran television star, Steve Allen, denounced the growing filth contained in movies and television programs by saying, “We have become a society where vulgarians entertain barbarians.” And that was 20 years ago!

God’s Response to the growing corruption:  Remedial Judgments

As we wallowed in the sexual revolution of the 1960’s, God began raising up prophetic voices like Rev Billy Graham, calling this nation to repentance.

We did not repent and are now experiencing His remedial judgments.  A remedial judgment can be determined by the magnitude, timing or unlikely placement.  You may disagree, but I believe the listed events below meet the criteria of a remedial judgment:

The 9/11 Attacks (2001)
The first real call to repentance was ignored.  God allowed the terrorists to be successful in attacking the two symbols of our pride: The Twin Towers in New York which represented our wealth, and the Pentagon in Washington, DC which represented our power.
Our response to this was the same prideful boast as Judah:  build a better tower and be more patriotic.  Repentance was never even mentioned.  And patriotism has quickly fallen by the wayside as well.
Massive Apocolyptic style hurricanes
The hurricanes escalated in the early 1990’s, after our reprieve with President Reagan.
Hurricane Sandy was not intended to land where it did.  A hand literally moved it into place.

God can, and does, change the climate to fulfill His will.  There are no “natural” events.

The Sept 2008 Stock Market Crash
Again, a response to our attempts to strong arm Israel into surrendering its heartland.
It occurred on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and the market fell by 777 points, God’s very own number.

Massive apocolyptic style earthquakes and volcanoes will be next.

God’s Warning: The 2017 Great Solar Eclipse

I believe this is the start of the heavy hitting judgments over the next 7 years until the next great eclipse that will mark the other side of the X across America.  Notice how Harvey came right in the Aftermath?  This eclipse is chock full of disturbing parallels if you want to make a study of it.

God is not treating us any differently. He has raised up prophetic voices to call us to repentance, and He is sending remedial judgments. And our response has been one of patriotism, when the needed response is repentance.

The “Dumbing down” of Christianity 

A crucial reason why we will continue to slide into a moral state of  “incurable wound” is the ignorance of God’s Word that has come to characterize both our nation and professing Christians. This ignorance is reflected in the latest polls conducted by the Barna Association which show that only 9% of Americans are Bible-believing Christians! And even more shocking, only 17% of professing Christians are truly Bible-believing Christians!

And what determines a Bible-believing Christian? Answers to the following six questions:

1) Does absolute moral truth exist?

2) Is the Bible totally accurate in all of the principles it teaches?

3) Is Satan a real being and not simply a symbolic force?

4) Can people earn their way into Heaven by doing good works?

5) Did Jesus live a sinless life?

6) Is God the all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the world who still rules the universe today?

Again, only 9% of Americans can answer these questions Biblically, and only 17% of professing Christians can do so. Is it any wonder that a recent national poll by the George Barna’s American Culture and Faith Institute revealed that:

77% of Americans believe divorce is acceptable.

71% believe sexual intercourse between unmarried adults is acceptable.

69% believe having a baby out of marriage is acceptable.

58% believe viewing pornography is acceptable.

Or, consider what public opinion polls are showing regarding same-sex marriage: acceptance of the abomination of same-sex marriage has increased rapidly from 37% in 2007 to 62% in 2018. The acceptance among white Evangelicals has increased from 14% in 2007 to 35% in 2018.

The latest poll in 2018 shows that Alabama is the only state in the Union where a majority of people oppose same-sex marriage!

Our nation needs to wake-up to the fact that legalizing an abomination does not make it moral.

Legality does not equal morality

The Triumph of Humanism

We are close to abandoning our morally upright constitution.  The attack on our constitution is now a daily news event.  It is only a matter of time.

Morality is like vinegar to the ungodly who are forced to keep its tenants

Will the Supreme Court stand as a wall of protection against the tide of paganism and secularism?  Not if 1) our constitution is abandoned and 2) a president changes the number of Supreme Court judges.

Our constitution does not specify the number of judges on the Supreme Court. This is determined by Congress. A radical President with a supporting Congress can undercut the Court by passing legislation to increase the members from 9 to 11 and to allow for additional appointments for each judge who stays on the court beyond the age of 70.

Yes, FDR tried this in 1937 when he was at the height of his popularity and failed. But what most people forget or don’t know is that after originally determining in 1789 that the Supreme Court would have six justices, the Congress has changed the size of the Court five times by either increasing or decreasing the number of justices — each time for political reasons.

God’s Wrath Revealed 

The Warning of Romans Chapter 1

Romans chapter 1 makes it crystal clear that the fate of our nation is sealed. It says that the wrath of God is called down from Heaven by: ungodliness, unrighteousness, suppression of the truth, and worship of the creation rather than the Creator.

Well, that’s exactly where we are in our nation’s history.

We are practicing ungodliness as we kick God out of our schools and all aspects of our public life.

We are practicing unrighteousness in our daily murder of babies.

We are suppressing the truth of the origin of the universe and of life.

We are worshiping the Creation rather than the Creator.

Romans 1 says that God responds to this kind of rebellion against Him and His Word by stepping back and lowering the nation’s hedge of protection, allowing evil to multiply. And the results are:

1) A sexual revolution — which occurred in our nation in the 1960s (verses 24-25).

2) A plague of homosexuality — which followed in the 1980s and 90s (verses 26-27).

3) The society being delivered over to a depraved mind — which is where we are today (verses 28-32).

My Prediction: The Future of the United States of America

Nor are we alone. Europe has wholeheartedly rejected Christianity, turning christian churches into homes and offices, and Christians are being persecuted and slaughtered worldwide. Our world is a ticking time bomb. And one of the tragedies is that the average person is just going about his normal business as if nothing is wrong, oblivious to the fact that the wrath of God is about to be poured out.

One wonders why America is mentioned very little in the Bible (yes it is there in the form of the Eagle in Daniel and the shepherd in Jeremiah 23:1-8 ).  It is because we will destroy ourselves before the end times.  While I have no Biblical proof, I believe the destruction of America is what throws the world into chaotic disorder. Several disasters are in the making which will destroy 100% of America.  I believe these will occur within the next 50 years, which I will explore further in a future post.

The collapse of the western part of La Palma island

The collapse of the newly formed, and fragile, shelf of Hawaii

The eruption of Mount Ranier and Yellowstone

The Great Midwest Earthquake

Our Hope 

Is there any hope for our nation? I do not believe so. But we should not despair for several reasons.

First, what we are experiencing is a fulfillment of end time prophecy. The biblical prophets, including Jesus Himself, all prophesied that in the end times society would disintegrate into violence and immorality — that it would become as evil as in the days of Noah, and that people would go about their business as if everything was normal.

That is exactly where we are today. And thus, we are witnesses to the very signs that are heralding the return of Jesus.

The second reason we should not despair is because there is individual hope. For those of us who are believers. God has promised that He will never forsake us. That does not mean that we will not endure hardship, trials, persecution and death.  The Bible is clear that in the end times the elect will suffer greatly to remove the chaff from the wheat, or, in other words the false christians from the true believers.

A third reason we should not despair is because of what God is doing in Heaven right now. The Bible says in Psalm 2 that while all the political leaders of the world conspire against Him, His Word and His Son, our Creator sits on His throne and laughs. He is not laughing because He does not care. Oh no! He is laughing because He has the wisdom and power to orchestrate all the evil of mankind and Satan to the triumph of His will in history.

And don’t forget, we have a fourth reason for hope. We have the incredible hope of the day when Jesus returns and gathers to Himself all who know Him.

There is also hope for unbelievers. As these judgments unfold, more people than ever will be drawn to salvation in Jesus.  It is already happening in the middle east.  I have read many testimonies of Muslims who abandoned their religion and converted after a vision of Jesus.  This phenomenon is the reason for the destruction of churches in China, the destruction of villages all across Africa.  Satan is desperately trying to hold onto his stronghold in these areas.

Meanwhile, as the darkness deepens, those of us who are believers must serve as salt and light, standing for God and His Word and refusing to give in to the demands of a pagan society, regardless of the cost.

We must be beacons of hope, pointing people to the God of hope while urging them to put their hope in their only Hope — Jesus, the Son of God and the soon returning King of kings and Lord of lords.

Rend your hearts rather than your garments, and turn back to Hashem your God. For He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in kindness, and renouncing punishment

Why Christmas and Easter are so very wrong

Constantine was the quintessential politician.  In order for everyone in his empire to “play nice” he combined holidays and traditions into one.  The last week in December, especially December 25, has been celebrated for millenia prior to the birth of Jesus by multiple pagan religions.  Constantine simply “added in” all the pagan celebrations and packaged it into a day to celebrate Jesus.  It is patently obvious that Constantine did not know the nature of God.  He just wanted peace in his empire.  Can Christianity ever be forced on anyone?  But that is what he tried to do.

And it is wrong.   Does God EVER countenance pagan influence in the Bible?  Would God EVER allow pagan traditions with a holy observance?  Would God EVER share HIS sacred celebrations with a pagan god?

You all know the answer.  But we are so steeped in the evil of Christmas that our minds slip away from contemplation of this.  As did I when I first vaguely became aware of this some years ago.  It has taken me years to come to terms with the entrenched evil attached to this holiday.  Tearing the pagan away from Christmas has been HARD.

As is any entrenched sin in our lives.

The pagan tradition of bringing in trees and decorating them and bowing to them was forbidden in the Old Testament.  Yet, what do we do at Christmas?  We bring in a tree, decorate it and then bow to it to receive the gifts placed underneath it.  Without any idea of the real meaning of what we are doing.

No, God does not repackage pagan traditions into His own.  He did not repackage the “christmas” tree, nor did He repackage Nimrod’s birthday.  Those who know His divine nature know better than that.  Man did this.

But, but….christmas is FUN.  Like going to an amusement park.  Yes, Satan packages acts abhorrent to God into things pleasurable to our sin nature.

Pagan christmas needs to be separated out from the devout Christian.   If Christians want to celebrate Jesus’ birthday a different day and different traditions must be chosen. The current tradition of christmas is steeped in the idolization of money, wealth and greed.  Christmas is about the Haves and the Have-nots.  It is Satan’s temptation wrapped in a shiny gift.  Adding in a few hymns and good cheer and  unauthorized religious observance doesn’t make it right.  One must ever unequally yoke the good with the bad.

Because every year we obey Satan.  Shame on us.  It is time to get back to the beginning and back to the Bible.

No where in the Bible is the celebration of the DAY of the birth and death of Jesus commanded or suggested or observed by the early Christian church.

No, the early Christian church was Jewish.  And because we threw out the Jewishness of Christianity, we don’t understand what we are to BE celebrating.

But I tell you, here and now, that combining Jesus’ birth date with Nimrod and Saturnalia, and His death and resurrection with Ishtar, is blasphemous.

God doesn’t share with anyone.

And for certain the one day that Jesus WASN’T born was on Nimrod’s birthday. Read about Nimrod if you will.  He was evil incarnate.

What are we to celebrate then?  We are to follow and celebrate what we are told in the Bible to celebrate eternally.  This includes everything that God stated “This will never end”.  This includes 3 Jewish holidays and Communion.

But you say “I am not Jewish”.  As a christian you have been grafted into the tree so yes, you are adopted into all the traditions and rules appointed by God that He states will never end.  Look for these in the Old Testament.  They are uncommon and eye-opening.

Few in the Christian world adhere to these commandments.  Because in our arrogance we threw out Jewish culture, teachings and history from Christianity.  We cut off The Way’s arms and legs and positioned ourselves for the Great Deception.

Most Christian churches erroneously think that the Old Testament is not very relevant in today’s world.  Because we are now steeped in cultural relativism, and the Old Testament is uncomfortable.  And we dont understand the ancient Jewish culture and thought.  But disregarding the Old Testament is blasphemous.  The New Testament only stands on the foundation of the Old Testament.  And when God said that “this celebration will never end” He meant that it will never end.  Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection did not negate these celebrations.

So what celebrations am I talking about?  They are these:

The Holy Convocation in the Feast of Weeks (Lev 23:15-25)  Note that it states: “It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.”

The Day of Atonement (Lev 23:27-32)  Note what verse 31 states:  “It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.”

Sukkot (Lev 23:34-44)  Note what vs 41 states: “It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.”

God doesn’t often say that “this is a rule or feast that is to be celebrated forever”.  He put that in there so that we would stop wool gathering and pay attention.  There are a few OT rules that He adds “and this will never end” which means that we should also pay attention to it.

God wants us to obey Him, not make up celebrations that He did not authorize.  Constantine was like Saul in 1 Samuel 13, who, pressured by his troops, offered a sacrifice to God after he waited for Samuel for 7 days.  But it wasnt up to Saul to offer a sacrifice.  That was Samuel’s job.  And it wasnt up to Constantine to change God’s appointed feasts and day of rest.  And he will be judged for it, as will all of us who follow his authority and not God’s.

God, in His wisdom and patience, can turn any evil into good.  And in His divine and holy grace He turns hearts to him, even at Christmas.  But it is in spite of us to minister to and reach the lost.

It isn’t up to us to decide what holy celebrations we will honor.  God has told us what to do.  It is time we start to obey.

Culture, countries and capitalism:The New Naughty Words

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act…..

George Orwell

As we observe on a daily basis with the failed mass migration experiment, nations, countries and people groups are fundamentally different and this difference has been God ordained from the time of Genesis.   Yet we think we know better.  Yet we think we have evolved past the need for culture and people-group identity.  Or that is what the narrative wants us to believe.

We haven’t even learned how to correctly unpack our history, yet we are now mucking about with, as I believe history will point to, events that herald the beginnings of WW III.

We don’t even know what we dont know.

And the first item that we don’t know is the inevitable, inseparable and unalienable truth that our culture defines who we are, were and want to be.

Watching and listening to children will indisputably enforce this idea.  What do children ask other children?  “Where do you come from”, is a topic of hot interest on the playground.  They want to know “where you came from”.  Why does this fascinate children?  Because to them, “where you came from” is tied to traditions.  And a child knows without being told that traditions tie us to our past, to our ancestors, to each other.  Traditions link us to the future, to economic stability, to each other as communities and countries.

It is for these traditions and cultural uniqueness that we travel.  We want to see what others have created for themselves.  We want to celebrate their diversity.  I want to go to Africa or Egypt or Germany or Brazil and see how they live and what they think about and what is important to them.  We want to connect with our individual people group migration patterns.  We see this in the surge to find out our genetic heritage at sites like Ancestry.com and 23andme.com

Countries preserve this heritage.  And what I have seen in the forced migration of people groups is a travesty.  I mourn Syria.  I mourn that the collective memory of Syria is getting shoved into a jigsaw puzzle that is does not, and will never, fit into.   I mourn that Germans are told that their millenia-old culture is not good enough.

As usual, the idiots that be have it all ass-backward.  And I am in full agreement with the Dali Lama “Europe belongs to the Europeans”.  Syria belongs to the Syrians.  Brazil belongs to the Brazilians.  And if we really cared about these people we would, as a united front, bring back their culture, re-build their cities, re-charge their economy.

The corrupt European governments do not care about the immigrants.  It was a means to an end.  It is patently obvious that the minority in power wants what they always want: an uneducated, cheap workforce, and that they want the spoils of Syria and the mid-east to themselves.  And what they did not fully realize is that they offerd their own culture, their own people groups, their own safety on the altar to get it.  A deal with the devil for certain.

But because of our need to preserve our culture it will backfire in ways that are unimaginable.

The second item that the governments seem not to understand is the inherent greed of people and the pitfalls of socialism. 

Once a country is socialized, and social programs are put into place, the country becomes, of necessity, a fragile closed system.  In this closed system similar numbers of people need to be born and die, working and retired, healthy and sick, in order for the economy to finance these programs.  Of necessity, migration and immigration must shut down to a trickle.  While capitalism encourages immigration, socialism closes off the borders or economic collapse will occur.  It is a simple historically accurate fact.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out.  It took me 5 minutes years ago at the start of the mass migration to see massive trouble ahead.  I believe that Europe is discovering this after the fact.  America has yet to do so.  And why?  Because people are no longer critically thinking.

Trump, being a business man who does not believe the tripe of Keynesian economics, knows this all too well.  He is trying to save our country from economic collapse.  Yet our own people don’t understand these principles.  They will, all too well, when they cannot get their social security, when their retirement is absconded like Greece, when taxes match what Germany pays.  By then it will be too late.

European governments thought that bringing in these people groups would spur their economy when they saw that birth rates were down in their populations.  This is not correct.  The economy is not supported and birth rates will not be replaced when the people are drowning in taxes.  And unfortunately, their choice of worker– the middle eastern mind– is not a working mind due to the subsidies that the oil wealthy middle eastern governments have handed out for decades.  They have literally learned as a culture how to be inactive.  This has been a terrible destructive force to a great and enduring culture.  Wealth used indiscriminately leads to waste and indolence.  Now Europe has to partly realized this and are now puzzled as to why the second generation middle eastern immigrant doesnt want to work.  They “assumed” that the typical model of second generation immigrant would hold true.  They didnt look at the culture.

So now, the only way to save the sinking ship is to embrace “globalism”.  We know that globalism has been attempted time and again, Empires have risen and fallen for millenia.  All have fallen over time.  Why don’t we ever learn from our history?

On the American front, these are hard truths but they must be faced.  Attempts by social media giants to stifle them are treasonous.  On a personal level, I care about my country and my people.  On a personal level, I want and need the SSI retirement I sacrificed and paid so much for over the decades of my life.  And you do as well.  I risk much to remind you of this.  We must therefore balance immigration to what our system can handle.  In eight years social security will be bankrupt.  Can we really afford to bring in one more person?

Maybe, the radical answer is that when social security is bankrupt, all social services cease.  Then whoever wants to live and work in America can do so, like it was before the failed experiment of socialism.  The weak will fall and the strong will thrive.  A dismal thought.

Obviously, there are no good answers at this point.  Protect one’s citizens at the expense of any form of mass migration will become the answer of any country that wants to survive.

The quick decisions of short lived politicians always have long term consequences.

Aliens or Demons?

The Bible speaks of a Great Deception in the End Times.  And people have been searching for one Great Deception.  But I believe that the Great Deception is all-inclusive.  the Bible tells us that in the End Times everything we know to be true is a lie.   I have already discussed the lie of the dinosaurs.  Now I would like to turn my attention to aliens.

But first we must understand the purpose of why God created the earth in the first place.  It was to be a physical garden where the Trinity Godhead and His counsel, or Elohim, could reside.  It was to be administered and cared for by his dearest creation, human beings, who were His children.  This place was unique and special, an immense circular flat plane placed on great pillars.  The description is very similar to the recent resurgence in the Flat Earth theory, although that isn’t completely correct either, and is consistent with the Old Testament Jewish description of the physical form of the earth and firmament as found in numerous passages in the Bible.  The “firmament” (sky/heavens/universe)  was created to show God’s majesty and power, to regulate times and seasons, to light the world, to instruct and warn.

Therefore from this we know that we are unique and special.  Yet there is a body of evidence suggesting that we are not alone.  So how do we explain this?

The Bible says that heaven is a physical place.  Ancient historical texts referenced in the Bible such as the Book of Enoch goes into great description regarding this.  We know that the earth is God’s footstool and I believe that statement is both poetic and literal in that God is on His great throne in His great temple and right below Him is a window where He can view all the great circular plane of the earth in its’ entirety.

As a physical place, it is possible to get there.  We know this from the Genesis account of the Tower of Babel.  Whatever the humans of the day were building it was so grand and immense that it was theoretically possible to reach where God resides.  God says in Genesis 11:6  The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.  I believe that God was speaking literally, that this tower and all it represented literally threatened His physical residence.  We also know that Elisha physically was transported to heaven, as was Jesus in His ascendance.  Elisha was transported via a “chariot of fire”, which I believe to be a supernatural vehicle that allows passage between the realms, a vehicle like the UFO’s of our current age.

One very important point that is critical to know about Satan.  He copies what God has created.  As second to God, he will know also how to transport between realms, as he transported himself in the amazing account of the Book of Job. While it is fantastical to think, I believe that our UFO’s are physical evidence of that transport between realms, and that the passengers are supernatural beings.  It is possible, and probable, that these vehicles are used by both God’s angels and Satan’s army.

I believe that this is important in the End Times.  Revelation 9:7 discusses a great pestilence that will descend on the world with the opening of the abyss and a description of the terrible creatures that will descend on us.  I believe that this is a demonic invasion that will hide as an alien invasion, something that Satan has been preparing minds for since the beginning of the 20th century.

The show Ancient Aliens is very interesting and I believe that they see but do not see.  And the lie is that aliens are not a natural part of God’s creation.  They are the result of Satan’s seed as mentioned in Genesis and we are being prepared to receive them through the alien deception.   Keep this in the back of your mind and do not accept the lie that other world’s are inhabited.

I may be wrong about this.  But my spirit tells me that I am on the right track and it gives a reasonable explanation to tie these passages in the Bible with what I observe in the sky.

Test everything and keep an open mind.  Selah.

Demonic Dinosaurs, the Corrupted Flesh

I recently saw a clip of a kangaroo fighting with a man.  Kangaroos are incorrectly thought to be cuddly marsupials as depicted in Winnie the Poo but that popular opinion is absolutely untrue.  And when I saw the Kangaroo I was struck, actually gobsmacked as the Brits say, by what I think was a Divine Revelation.

I have always wondered why the dinosaurs were not taken into the Ark as Noah took every creature two by two.  I believe the reason is that the dinosaurs were not created by God.  Instead, they are part of the corrupted flesh discussed in Genesis chapter 6.  The Bible, the book of Enoch (described in the Bible multiple times as a factual historical document and so dangerous that I believe it was suppressed until recently) and ancient texts like the Book of Giants discuss the children of the “sons of God”, divine beings who disobeyed God and came to earth to mate with humans.  One of the hallmarks of “corrupted flesh” was IMMENSE SIZE.  I think that the corrupted creatures of old are distinguished by missing genes to stop growth.  So to find the corrupted animals one must look for creatures of immense size.

Hence the dinosaurs, creatures of immense size.  While the Bible mentions great creatures multiple times, it is in reference to the behemoth, the dragon and the Leviathan, three specific creatures.  In the dinosaurs, we have hundreds.  We know that God had to destroy the earth in the great flood because all of humanity had been corrupted both genetically and spiritually, which threatened God’s plan of redemption.  God literally waited until the last-minute, until only a few humans still retained pure human DNA, as Jesus could not have any DNA corruption.  God hated to destroy what He created.  And this is why the dinosaurs were not included in the ark.  They are not part of His creation.

I also believe that this is one of the references to the End Times return to “in the days of Noah”, as dinosaurs will be returning in our misguided effort to bring them back by DNA manipulation.

Woe to us when this happens.

Back to the kangaroo.  I was suddenly blindsided by what I was really seeing.  The original blueprint of the T-rex.  Look at them, compare them and you will see what I mean.  I believe that other animal blueprints can be found if one chooses to look for them.

Dinosaurs did not exist by themselves millions of years ago.  They existed as a horrible experiment gone wrong by the actions of the Elohim.  And God wiped them from existence.  They sank to the bottom when the flood waters receded because that is what great weight does.  Test this in your heart and do not believe the lie.  The End Times great deception is many fold, and the current and accepted dinosaur theory is one of them.

America in the Bible

The question that has haunted Biblical scholars:  Is mention of America in the Bible?

I believe the answer is yes but to understand where we are, one must understand God’s purpose for America.

God’s purpose for America is the protection of His people Israel.

America is first mentioned in Daniel 7:4: The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.

Why do I say that?  In Bible prophesy countries are not often listed as names we recognize but as symbols or the initial name of the area.  This verse is describing two famous symbols of two countries:  the Lion (Britain) and the Eagle (America).  The eagle’s wings are on the back of the lion and then separates.  This is describing the American colonies declaring independence from Britain and standing on its own.  So we see the beginning of our great nation is described in Old Testament Bible prophesy.

Then I believe that America is referenced twice more, once again in Old Testament Bible prophecy and once by Jesus.

The Old Testament Bible prophesy outlines our mission and is found in Jeremiah 23:1-8:

Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture!” declares the Lord. Therefore this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to the shepherds who tend my people: “Because you have scattered my flock and driven them away and have not bestowed care on them, I will bestow punishment on you for the evil you have done,” declares the Lord. “I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number.I will place shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord.

In Daniel, America becomes independent and stands as a man.  In Jeremiah, this man becomes a shepherd for God’s people Israel when the nation is re-formed.  We were one of the driving forces that fulfilled this purpose with our intervention in WW II and with the creation and protection of Israel, along with Britain.

Woe to America if we ever deviate from this purpose!  And of course we will, as Israel will be crushed at some point in the years to come.  We see the beginnings of it now, as America becomes more and more corrupt.  I believe this was God’s purpose for supernaturally raising up President Trump.  God is not ready for us to abandon our purpose…yet.

I believe there is another reference to America, a darker purpose, and this is a little oblique so I certainly may not be correct.  What one must understand about the Bible is that it often has multiple meanings both literal and figurative and often these meanings are both for the present and the future.  Jesus references a passage from Job, copied below:

Does the eagle mount up at your command, and make its nest on high? On the rocks it dwells and resides, on the crag of the rock and the stronghold. From there it spies out the prey; its eyes observe from afar. Its young ones suck up blood; and where the slain are, there it is” (Job 39:27-30)

Note that the Eagle is a PREDATOR, devouring the slain.  Scholars think that Jesus’ reference to the Eagle is of the church but birds and Eagles in the Bible are harbingers of death and evil, not good. Both America and the Nazi’s chose the eagle as their symbol, which I think was purposeful and is significant in understanding Jesus’ reference to Eagles.

In Matthew 24:28 Jesus has been discussing signs of the end times and makes this oblique reference: For wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.  I believe that this is a reference to both the Nazi regime and to America as harbingers of war in the end times.  America is a war monger and has been ever since WW II.  I believe this is a reference to our country as soldier of the world.  And I think it has both our designated purpose as shepherd/protector to Israel and our dark purpose as a leader who ushers in the End Times.  And I believe that we are seeing both on several levels right now as America leads the world in Jesus’ prediction of the “rumors of wars” as signs leading up to the end times, which I have interpreted as both the Cold/Spy Wars and the War on Thought waging now in our country.

I have not seen evidence yet of America other prophetic end times as of yet, and I think that our purpose ends once we end our protection of Israel.  Daniel prophesies also in chapter 7 that Germany (Leopard) will rise four times, most probably with the return of the Nazi regime, and I surmise that the 4th Reich will end us, as a fitting end to the terrible depravity and corruption that started in the 1960’s.  But I have no proof of this.  Time will tell.

So what do I want you to understand from this post?  Know our purpose and support Israel.  Do all you can to battle the corruption and evil that is suffocating America.  Repent of your sins and return to God. And, most important, preach the Gospel, the redemptive work of Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ, the son of the living GOD.

The Last Days of the Sermon on the Mount

I grow ever more disturbed and despondent over what is happening in our world today.  And the Bible tells me that what I am experiencing is only the start of what is to come.  To that end, it is essential that we know and cling to what we are commanded to do in BOTH the Old and New Testiments.

Recently I re-visited Jesus’ sermon on the mount and I was struck by what has been universally thrown away from this message.  I would like to highlight a few salient points for your edification from Matthew ch 5, and encourage you to ponder them with me in the light of current and past world events.

When I compare Jesus’ description of the Christian in the first several verses with what Christians are today I am sickened by the chasm that has developed over the past several decades.  Jesus blesses those who are poor in spirit, meek, merciful, pure in heart, hungry for righteousness.  When I compare this composite with what is valued in Western culture I see the exact opposite.  Pride, greed, hypocracy, judgement, violence, pursuit of happiness, love of money, commercialism and rampant evil are our legacy to our children.  Based on this,  my feeling that God is judging the West may be a valid one.

I find it interesting that the rise of a people and culture completely opposite and uncompromising to Western thought coincides with the degradation of Jesus’ teachings.  Yes, I am talking about our Muslim brothers, yet not in the way you think.  I believe God has given the West over to them in a sort of global Trojan-like war, and in many ways I agree that this is just….. even though I struggle with this on a personal level, as no matter how awful a culture is, it is hard to see my culture destroyed for it is all that I know.

Jesus warns Christians that they are salt and light and are good for nothing when they become ineffective.  Are we are now ineffective in Western society.  We have allowed our voice to be shut down with the rise of ideas like political incorrectness, a thought that came out of communism and Thought Control.  We stand by and watch sin explode over the airwaves, the medium of Satan the Prince of the Air.  Why do you think he has that title?  We are seeing the fruition of it now through the bombardment of sin over the airwaves which God has allowed to be Satan’s realm.

Jesus states a stern warning over our attitude towards others and He introduces the idea of Thought Sin.  Dismissive, judgmental comments towards others denigrating their worthiness are condemned by Him, with the stern and awful warning that failure to heed this will lead to judgment by hellfire.  We MUST heed this warning with full attention yet few ever mention this in sermons or discussions.  We don’t fully appreciate that we are made in God’s image; therefore calling someone ‘stupid’ or worthless is a great offense to God.  With the rise of the internet the hostility and “trolling” of people, the disdain and hostile judgement have exploded.  This experiment in open access has shown that easy knowledge is full of temptation to harm.   But shutting it down isn’t the answer, as it is our sinful nature that is the foundation for evil in all its forms.  Trying to fix a broken foundation by gluing holes in the walls is meaningless.

Fix the heart and you fix the problem.

Jesus introduces the idea of lust as a form of adultery.  Now it is no longer the action but the thought that precedes it.  Our society is rotten with lust and sex is the gateway to our pocketbook.  The saying “sex sells” is a true reflection of our seductive fall into depravity.  Jesus states unequivocably that re-marrying after divorce is adultery and divorcing for any reason outside of adultery is adultery.  This command has been almost wiped off the face of the Christian western theology.  But God won’t remove a command just because we don’t want to follow it.  So expect judgment when one is living in active sin…and adultery is an active, daily, living sin.

The next part is very difficult for me personally as it introduces an extreme form of altruism.  Jesus commands us to “turn the other cheek” when slapped, to give more than asked when sued, to go two miles when forced to do one.  The idea behind this is to show altruistic and sacrificial love to people who try to harm you.  The foundations are time, care and a rejection of materialism.  As one can easily see, these are what we lack most of all today.  We are too busy, too apathetic, too wrapped up in what we think we want and need.  Electronics are our god and they are an expensive master.  Who has time or money to obey this command?  We also have allowed ourselves to become isolated in our communities and breaking down the walls to promote altruistic relationships is no longer valued in our culture.

Lastly, chapter 5 ends with loving our enemies.  If one loves an enemy the above commands become a natural extension of this love.  I think a warning needs to be given for this though.  Loving ones enemy is not the same as submitting to ones enemy.  In other words, for an easy and tired example, I can and must love persons who struggle with same-sex attraction or pedophilia or gender dysphoria but I cannot support their actions as it is against the laws of God and against the laws of DNA.  I can and must care for them as people, treat them kindly and fairly, help them and not judge them personally.  But I cannot support laws that allow them to harm themselves or others as God has deemed their actions as harmful to their bodies and to society as a whole.  And this balance is difficult in the course of daily living.

But that is the crux of it.

Christianity is difficult.

It is a daily denial of self and in a culture where self is the new god, where we are our own star of our show, where what we have is more important that what we are.

I fear that these divine principles are breathing their last unless we come as a people, a nation and a culture to full and complete repentance.
