The spiritual world is a real place, and this is a sketch I made on a piece of parchment paper in my late 20s of a fleeting vision I saw of the Lord’s crucified face watching me! Some of us are more perceptive to spiritual events, I think, and most of the time one must be careful with what we share to not make others stumble or choke on experiential gifts. Additionally, I’m not sure how much longer I am going to keep my web page, so I’m just sharing a very brief vision (of about 3 in ministry) which I’ve had in my life.
People often believe that the political right or the left create extremists and tyrants, but the truth is without God, and Man wanting to play God, by having complete control over others and power, meets at the same point philosophically on the circle, with often the same atrocities occurring!
Sometimes, I get to look back at events outside the weeds, and I get a clear idea of actually what is transpiring in our lifetimes, and perhaps as the Lord – already sees it!
The whole issue with the United States today stems from going from producing products like oi. Gas, coal, steel, machinery, automobiles, shipyards, Aerospace, and of course jobs. To produce really little in comparison to those old-style industrialized markets.
We also had Ft. Knox, which our dollar was based upon during these decades.
All this is what made America the industrialized powerhouse, not just for us, but for the entire world!
Global Banks wanting control of our money has always been a threat to our independence and power all the way back since before Abraham Lincoln became President too, yet they could not break our back in being allowed to have Global control of all the wealth.
I believe the Marxist style manipulations implemented partially by the U.N. during the 1960s using the hippie “flower power” movement combined with the ecology movement of cleaning up “our” industrial pollutants, then to “our – carbon footprints” was an ingenious plot in slowly destroying the United States economy as the juggernaut of industrial strength and power!
Then we had the electronic miniaturization of semiconductors, coupled with the microchip-computer technology boom, with people like the co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates in the 70s and 80s, just about the time the U.S. Steel Mills started to decline for foreign steel.
At that point, the new aim at making money became rooted in Silicon Valley, with the United States becoming a service-based economy, instead of more of a product-based economy, like it had once been known for.
Silicone Valley-based business then forwarded the idea of “renewable energy” based upon electronically controlled systems and technologies – away from the more traditional so-called “fossil fuels” which fuel the world!
If you remember, most of the old industrialized Tycoons were Republican businesses and the Labor Unions were Democratic-represented. Yet that old construct slowly diminished over time to Global interest rather than National interests.
With these new technological advancements, the idea of a human labor force also is not needed as much as during industrialization. Coupled with these technologies is the development of wondrous medical science complete with gene splicing; and did I mention the abortion industry using human life as a simple commodity as well?
That’s right, humanity has now become a simple commodity in the lust for power and money, they don’t need private property, or the accumulation of wealth, only the controlling elitists need that, and when you can no longer produce, you are no longer needed!
How am I doing in painting this picture? Are you tracking the greed, and while many proclaim they are saving humanity for a better world, and that they care about people? Even as diseases are released probably starting as biological warfare someplace – here or in China, it doesn’t matter, as only the love of money motivates this wickedness!
Wake up from the Green Energy and man-made Global warming shtick, complete with electronic measurements, censors, and computerized microchips, upon which most engines won’t run without!
This is why Donald Trump was such a threat to so many, he started to bring back the industrialized, fuel-producing independence that America was famous for! He empowered the little guy (again) with jobs, low fuel bills, police protection, and choice of medical insurance, and focused on actual military and enemy threats, instead of Global Warming or on woke social experimentation which only helped to further erode American families, our schools, and even our children’s health and security – often with people who couldn’t care less about families despite their rhetoric.
Yes, silicone valley, the New World Order, Bill Gates, and other on-the-take politicians hate Trump and his “Make America Great Again” agenda! It’s not because of his abrasiveness or even the man’s ego, which was then a winner on The Apprentice. Rather that is just fodder in the threat to take back a global controlled economy with which many U.S. Representatives line their pockets – and that even goes beyond political party, it’s called greed and sin. Is it any wonder that big corporations control information, especially when they are rooted in Silicon Valley?!
This is an opinion piece, I remember back when I was young, people in this country had the right to express their viewpoints openly and without fear of retribution or censorship, no matter how outlandish! This was known as classical liberalism, which was embraced then by Universities and the press. Today you are lucky if you don’t get fired or fined by these same types of people who ran the old Soviet Union, or the “Red” Chinese Government – the charge is now “vaglee disguised” as “Misinformation” on large social media platforms in the United States, and just so you know, when a government does this, that’s called “Disinformation”, or to put it bluntly, a lie! So who gets to decide?
So why do Americans vote for Communist-influenced Democrats or Republicans, do they hate our country’s founding principles? Obama apologizes for America all over the world and bows to our adversaries, he pulls forces out of Iraq only to have it fall, after thousands of Americans laid down their lives for its independence. And he invested in green energy companies which failed, just like the electric automobile is doomed to do in my estimation…
Donald Trump, (although abrasive) is elected as the 45th President, in his promises he attempts to keep securing the border, stopping criminal elements, drugs, and potential terrorists from further eroding our national security. He builds back up American industry, military, jobs, energy, and our independence as a nation, and cannot be bought by outside influences – which have infected our government. He forfeits his pay to charity and does not make corrupt personal gains using his office. Likewise, he leads the world into stability and relative peace, and delivers upon old promises to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel without bloodshed!
He keeps Russia and China in check while fighting terrorism and protecting the sacrifices made by our military. The dollar is stable and booming, and foreign energy is not needed, having our energy reserves full and cheaply because of the low price of oil around the globe thanks to his leadership.
The Democrats hate his America First policies, Nancy Pelosi tares up the State of the Union speech, right behind the President on live Television, as she knows she will face no disciplinary actions.
COVID-19 is released from the Wuhan lab in China and infects the globe with a disease never seen before by humanity. President Trump reacts quickly by making travel restrictions, and tightening our border security to an even greater extent, using a nearly completed border wall that was resisted by the Democratically controlled Congress in its funding!
President Trump mobilizes our industries for the first time since WW2 to produce trial vaccines and life-saving ventilators around the globe in record time to meet the crisis!
Then his rebuilt American economy is put at a destructive, regulated government standstill. Many small businesses are destroyed, and people are put on lockdown from state to state and allowed no social contact, even in the churches. Leftist protest mobs are exempt from these COVID lockdowns, and riot and burn cities and government installations, without the consequence of police and Democratic-appointed Mayors and Governors!
The Democratically controlled Congress then pressures one of the newly appointed FBI directors to make distinctions based on race, in just who is the most dangerous extremist groups in America, reluctantly he interjects that it is white right-leaning activists for the first time in American history, yet exempts most pro-communist supported groups like BLM and ANTIFA.
Trump supporters are also castigated into a role of suspicion as being potential domestic terrorists, then this narrative is reinforced because the January 6th protest turned violent, now being deemed as an insurrection. Even concerned parents who merely support school choice for their children, without the mandatory critical race theory, or the revisionist racist 1619 project being taught in replacing our traditional history of the 1776 founding of our Constitutional Republic are under suspicion by left-wing activists.
Joseph Biden is portrayed as the “President-Elect” by the National press, even despite dubious suspicions of election fraud by about half of the electorate. The White House and the Capitol are surrounded by federal troops, with concertina wire strung along the perimeter for controlled access to the nation’s capital. No investigation is ever allowed for corrupt voting violations from state to state, or even at the local government level, and Joseph Biden is confirmed as the 46th President of the United States. President Trump then leaves office, castigated as some sort of tyrant and revolutionary by the national press. Later, only to be raided by the very law enforcement which should respect unreasonable search and seizure.
The Democrats then completely dismantle any gains for the country under President Trump, they halt already paid-for plans to complete the wall at the southern border, dismantle the effort for the Keystone Pipeline to be completed, yet fund with federal money the Suez-Mediterranean (SUMED) Pipeline in the Middle East in furthering the control of the 7 middle eastern banks, not yet under the control of the world banking network.
Then, President Joseph Biden (like his counterpart before him with Iraq) abandons Afghanistan without restraint or concern for our citizens or operatives in the region. With a non-vetted hoard of potential enemies being allowed in the United States, along with an open border policy on our southern border, allowing deadly drugs, gangs, the none vaccinated sick, and potential terrorists in the country, unchecked by the grossly underfunded and undermanned U.S. border patrol.
The military is required to take CRT theory, support transgender surgery, and watch for any troop that appears to not support these new doctrines down to the squad level to be reprimanded, coupled with mandatory gene therapy vaccinations, or be flagged even prior to discharge!
Just yesterday, I learned that our freedom of speech and expression, plan on being fined financially by platforms like PayPal and perhaps large corporate banks like Chase for promoting “misinformation” on social platforms by Candice Owens in her latest Facebook video.
It seems that conservative thought or even the theoretical is not allowed, especially to challenge the idea of having a free and fair election in 2020. Even as the FBI and the IRS target political opponents of the Democratic Party!
So I ask you again, (unless you have been brainwashed like the nation’s youth) to accept the vile and destructive lifestyle of the Lord’s family structuring; how can anyone vote for Communist Democrats or even RINO Globalist representatives, who would sell out all the personal liberties of the people it is charged with representing?!
This is THE question of Antiquity, is it God or the Devil, the Pope or the Reformers, is it based on absolute truth, or is it based on plural relativism? Is it how one group of people collectively think, or is it the person who questions outside the established norms? Is the earth flat, or is it round, was man meant to fly, or was he not? I submit to you, in the spirit of classical liberalism of free thought, ideas and speech, that we never would have come to a conclusion to these questions without the ability of public freedom of expression!
(I am forced to post this video here, instead of my Lightship Ministries channel, due to a 90-day ban of my first YouTube strike about the 2020 election)
Excuse me, I heard the Anglican Church say today that Queen Elizabeth II, has been charged as the “Defender of the Faith” in Christ, this was instated after the Reformation had occurred by men like Oliver Cromwell, a believer of the faith of the Gospel, and not (even) Roman Popery!
So, if Roman Catholicism was rejected, how can one allow even more contrasting and dogmatic faith groups who will not respect any Judaeo-Christian heritage, are openly hostile towards it, and refuse to assimilate into Western Culture, to overrun and violently destroy this English Nation – or other like-minded nations for that matter?
“Lip service” to the Lord is cheap and repulsive, the Government must enforce the principles given by the Lord God in Governance, in accordance with the Scripture, if people are to have liberty, and not tyranny and tribal warfare!
This goes for America too, the Founders understood these Biblical principles, and intertwined them in our Government: as well as the Founders of Harvard and others to instruct future generations!
Even West Point (our military) once had mandatory Chapel attendance until the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s!
You cannot compromise with God’s word, and this includes our so-called watered-down establishment clause! We all (still) may be saved by the grace and love of God, in sending his son as a justification for the world’s sin by faith.
Yet to compromise with, instead of defending the faith for the sake of plurality, is to ensure the decline and eventual destruction of all truth for the sake of Satan and his short stint of ultimate authority upon the earth!
We are currently still in the “age of grace”, but remember light has no fellowship with darkness, and the darkness will be overcome!
This is written from my knowledge of the Bible as my foundational truth, knowing that it is Jesus Christ who is the living word of God, by his sacrifice for our sins on the cross, and risen again to new life, that indeed we can have new life if we believe in him in our hearts, and not just a mental or historical belief system.
(Romans 1:20) For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
It is more and more evident that the world has disregarded and even discarded the doctrinal truths of the Gospel. This “Great Falling Away” is prophesied in the scriptures, as a convergence by the Lord as “when you see all these things” (happen) your redemption draws near (in speaking to His Church). The Bride of Christ.
I have grown past the point of being a “date setter” for the return of Christ in the “end of days” before the great calling away into the clouds, yet I am (like many others) profoundly aware that this day of the Lord is moving at an ever-increasing speed, and at some point, it will be too late for humanity to accept salvation by grace!
I spend a lot of time doing memes about the demonic influence of humanity and these world leaders who deceive, and who are deceived, proclaimed by their actions! Likewise, I think most all believers know that Jesus Christ’s return is not far off, and if they don’t, I reckon them to be asleep spiritually!
The “New Word Order” the Satanic world rule as foretold in the scriptures which will usher in “That Wicked – the man of sin” denying all that is of God for a lie is increasingly evident with each passing day!
One world Government cannot exist without the destruction of the Nation States, and in my estimation, any Country which could prevent such a transfer of power has to go! That Nation would foremost be the United States of America and its Constitutional Republic.
Its balance of power would also have to be destroyed and corrupted politically. The Democratic Party and its Marxist (Humanistic) teachings are the tip of the sword, and yet the sword could not exist without the support of the blade – a corrupted Republican Party!
The False Church complete with false brethren also must rear its ugly head, as with the “Mother of Harlots” (Rome) as well as all her daughters within “Protestantism”. And “Born Again” believers must realize that Satan was there soon after the creation, and is very good at mimicking and twisting the scriptures (God’s truths) from the very begging of his fall from heaven!
Humanity is a reflection of these spiritual powers at work ever since He/She fell from paradise to the earth along with Satan and his kingdom.
This is why it is imperative to receive Salvation from the fall by the blood of Christ shed on the cross as an atonement for sin.
After that the believer needs to endeavor to be more Christ-like by constant prayer, walking in the Holy Spirit in regeneration to Glorify God, and not yield to the decaying flesh, that only receives new life (for the believer) after the grave!
Mankind without Christ only seeks to glorify himself, like his Father the Devil. And what he can build independent of the Lord. This is why the believer must struggle to imitate Christ in his love for humanity!
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
You see, what people are seeing and experiencing today is the difference between the sinful heart and the regenerated (God-fearing) heart.
Yes, indeed God is love, yet he is also righteous and without sin, and is not able to violate himself in the giving of free will to humanity. This is why He “offered up” his Holy and unstained Son on our behalf, knowing we could not save ourselves to his standard of perfection – nor could we keep His Laws.
Yeah, it does grieve me very much to see the destruction of America and the Nation-State, and in transparency, it is a great struggle daily to undertake:
Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Yet we must try, or risk being simply overwhelmed by the sheer volume of sin we see and feel around us! Please pray for me brethren, as a soldier’s mission always comes first!
The Lord gave free will to man and dominion over the earth. When man became subservient to Satan during the fall from the Garden of Eden, then he and Satan took dominion over the earth instead. It is a testament to the Sovereignty of God, that he is able to work “all things for good” Romans 8:28 – to those called according to his purpose (even despite a fallen world)! Providentially, out of all of humanity, God foreknew (the ones who would come to him) and to those he chose, called, and elected, to be conformed to His Son, partaking in his glory.
The below passage does not show that “all” couldn’t come, rather it merely shows that God foreknew (before the foundations of the earth) those who would come. The Lord is not in violation of his decision to give man free will, or in choosing damnation for some, yet not for others. As all of humanity is openly (yet passively-if you will) given the chance by grace to become the Sons and Daughters of God.
2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Yet like in the days of Noah, most will reject the grace of God towards salvation, in putting their own desires above God.
New American Standard Bible – Romans 8:29-30
29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
King James Version – Romans 8:29-30
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
New Living Translation – Romans 8:29-30
29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.
Young’s Literal Translation – Romans 8:29-30
29 because whom He did foreknow, He also did fore-appoint, conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be first-born among many brethren;
30 and whom He did fore-appoint, these also He did call; and whom He did call, these also He declared righteous; and whom He declared righteous, these also He did glorify.
The United States has gone from a Judaeo-Christian nation in its founding, to a state of debauchery. This has been the downfall of Western Civilizations throughout the ages.
Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ was at the heart of many settlers within the new world, and up until the latest generations, the Bible was the biggest selling book in America.
After the Second World War, the United States was suffering from a teacher shortage, the pro-socialist / humanist movement in Europe at that time had influenced education and started slipping away from its Christian informed moorings. The importation of European teachers was the start of what was to become the National Education Association and was rooted in this new humanism, often called today Cultural Marxism.
By 1962-1963 Bible reading and prayer in schools would be abandoned primarily because of the work of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, who would become the President of the American Atheist, and by 1964 was daubed by Life magazine as “the most hated woman in America”.
This terminology about O’Hair would never hold true today, as our education system has systematically and deliberately thrown any mention of the Lord and the reading of Biblical texts out of our schools and colleges. Also coupled with the Feminist and homosexual movements of the 1970s would change the culture forever.
The Obama administration was active in championing pro-Marxist viewpoints in our school systems and universities, coupled with a leftist (man-made) Climate Change indoctrination in the sciences, (designed to weaken industrialized nations) with a reinterpretation of the history that had been traditionally taught about the founding of America. These teachings have permeated young minds as truth, and many have a wrong understanding of the principles of the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. The result is generations of “Woke” indoctrinated children, many of whom are now adults, and have been indoctrinated by the humanist school systems to dismiss even “religions” as they call them, as irrelevant to the modern culture and their morality.
Now many younger Americans are ashamed of America, for having never been taught classical Western Civilization in our schools. Amazingly in every aspect, not excluding even the hard sciences like mathematics and of course English, and history, which was replaced by cultural diversity (Social Studies) by the late 1980s. Since then, the idea of a “Racist America” who are also intolerant of “alternative lifestyles” (LGBTQ+) has been forced to the forefront by lobbyists like the “Human Rights Foundation” located in Washington DC, which equate the union of one man and one woman in marriage, to other unions holding to a pluralistic viewpoint of any sexual union which makes “anyone” (no holds barred) happy and fulfilled as a human right. Many of whom are openly hostile towards the old “Moral Majority”; coined for use during the Reagan administration by Jerry Falwell.
This majority of American parents were opposed by what I call these debauch-erst activist groups, who are in opposition to the traditional nuclear family structuring and yet, who are but a minority of the population. These viewpoints are being assisted by mass media, advertising, cartoons, children’s shows, and even our federal government which calls themselves “representatives of a democracy” (Republic) and supposedly ruled for the best interests of the majority of people, which is the very definition of a democracy.
Representing the majority of people is what a good government is supposed to do, but money and pressures from special interests and even foreign nation’s governments, have destroyed the strength and security of America, including our borders, language, and now culture, to a point of no return to the principles we were blessed with beyond measure!
I really don’t expect a Civil War or Revolution in America, but rather the continual gradual takeover by governments like the UN or China, who are more committed to their oppressive rule of Communism, than the United States has been to the freedoms found in the Lord, who allowed the birth of this new Nation.
I made this graphic to explain the “holding places” of people’s souls after death. Hades actually includes “Lower Hell” as some translations describe it, yet Hades and Hell are still not Heaven. I did an extensive study on this, (I was asked to) and have upgraded my findings in this graphic. The late Johnathan Edwards, I have found, has a greater understanding than most contemporary teachers.
A graphic expressing the Biblical “spiritual” paths; that humanity will choose.
Revelation 20:14 (Original 1611 King James Bible)
death (Hades) and Hell were cast into the lake of fire: this is the second death.
“Sheol means ‘The place of departed spirits.’ Sheol/Hades was the abode of the spirits of the dead. Before the resurrection of Christ, both believers and unbelievers went to Sheol/Hades. Unbelievers still go there.” – This updated graphic took a lot of Bible studying to get this correct; and research from men like, Johnathan Edwards was the best help.
We hear a lot about the “Separation of Church and State” today, that term written by Thomas Jefferson in the light of the great awakening. Today we have a reversal of what was intended for this new nation, primarily because of religious persecution from the State magistrates.
An example of this was The Puritans, who fled to America as they were often persecuted for their faith by the crown, and not being subservient to the Church of England.
In our earliest form of government, religious groups “Constituted” the amount of control to be placed over them by the law. Later we would get our term Constitution from these same constructs.
Freedom to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ was at the core of this new nation, and a “Declaration of Independence” was driven forward by men like John Adams on July 1st, 1776. John Adams was willing to sacrifice his all for this new liberty so that his children might have the opportunity to hear the truth of the Gospel in every area of life.
Most today are not taught that it was the Colonial Pastors who inspired their church’s thinking. Also, the Federalist Papers (debate) printed in the news helped bring about the American Revolution.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord, which began the Revolutionary War, was led by Jonas Clark, Pastor of the Church in Lexington, twenty years before the Revolution. Other Clergymen like Jonathan Edwards, James Whitfield, and countless others supported this new form of Liberty; primarily for the sake of the Gospel, without the heavy foot of tyrannical government being oppressive to personal liberty, and what the founders saw as God-given freedoms from the Creator.
This is what our Independence Day (the 4th of July) represents.
For behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and no razor shall come upon his head, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines.”
But he said to me, ‘Behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and now you shall not drink wine or strong drink nor eat any unclean thing, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.’”
So he told her all that was in his heart and said to her, “A razor has never come on my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb. If I am shaved, then my strength will leave me and I will become weak and be like any other man.”
For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
“Listen to Me, O house of Jacob,
And all the remnant of the house of Israel,
You who have been borne by Me from birth
And have been carried from the womb;
Listen to Me, O islands,
And pay attention, you peoples from afar.
The Lord called Me from the womb;
From the body of My mother, He named Me.
And now says the Lord, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant,
To bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel might be gathered to Him
(For I am honored in the sight of the Lord,
And My God is My strength),
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
And before you were born I consecrated you;
I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it.”
For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and he will drink no wine or liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother’s womb.
And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.
And a man who had been lame from his mother’s womb was being carried along, whom they used to set down every day at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, in order to beg alms of those who were entering the temple.
At Lystra a man was sitting who had no strength in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who had never walked.
But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased
Today, we all live in ever-increasing evil times, where right becomes wrong and wrong right. The best defense against this Apostate Cancel Culture is by learning to listen to the Lord in an ever-dependent spiritual level of maturity. Unfortunately, this experiential growth is not often expressed, yet it is very important to learn how to listen and obey the Lord’s leading for our own security.

The only subversion Wikipedia mentions is by Republicans in protest of the voter count. When in reality, the only subversion was dubious ballot harvesting and electronic manipulations from state to state on mass only after midnight!
Well, it’s not about election fraud or even seeking greater truths, it’s about power, money, and the manipulation of free peoples for selfish gain!
I was just thinking today that everything the Democratic Party pushes nowadays, has been based on deceptions while lining their pockets. It has never been about helping others or doing projects for the better good of the country. The intellectual premise of the world is NOT based on true science, but rather on manipulations of data. I have been involved in the past with learning and swallowing everything from climate goals to equal opportunity studies.
All of it has undertones condemning the industrial revolution, free markets, western civilization, and particularly the advancements of the English-speaking peoples as far back as the day of sail. Everything they push is based on the lie of destroying the environment, and the oppression of less advanced cultures and their people.
Perhaps a case could be made for the oppression of “so-called” minorities in the past, yet you would have to weed out all the liberation and technological advancements shared with underdeveloped parts of the world as well! When I was in sociology school, we were taught “the white man IS the oppressor” / not WAS the oppressor, and of course, let’s not forget about the women as well!
These are all vile and disgusting one-sided lies produced in condemning millennia of human progress by people who think they have the right to rewrite history because only they know a better way that has never been tried before! These people are either buffoon’s drunk on their own understanding, or deeply deceived in their own ignorance of the past. There are no two ways about it, either you believe the lies and accept them, or you fight to understand the greater truth.
I suppose it gets down to the first verse in the Bible: “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”… Or, you believe there is no God, and that all is relativism and random happenstance, so within our own understanding – we can change (and evolve) the world into a better place. The only problem is, that this type of thinking never produced anything but starvation, slavery, wars, and premature deaths by tyrants who thought that they knew better too!
Go ahead, believe the Father of Lies while denying his existence like Carl Marx did, or change your mind knowing the world needs a Savior, who God has sent to save the world from themselves!
I believe the time is very short for the day of Salvation, and at the rate deceptions and lies are being pumped out daily by mass media and others, well it won’t be too terribly long before Satan will have his day, and then be destroyed by the brightness of the Lord’s second coming! I know, I know, every generation since the Apostle Paul thought this; yet never before has every form of debauchery been so present, and at lightning speed!
This newspaper article: Pope’s peace prayer recalls century-old “Fatima Prophecy” (Newspaper Clip) looks to be much the same as what Albert Pike’s predicted in 1871 about the three world wars. So I decided to link these pages for your “prophetic pleasure” you can read them below.!
It seems that the “new world order starts, when people lose confidence in governments”.It is the feet of Iron and clay as in the book of Daniel, and Revelation 17 into 18 unfolding before our eyes. Below are some introductory’s to some of the things whichAlbert Pike apparently helped champion. by Terry Melanson, Oct. 5th, 2010 entitled: Albert Pike to Mazzini, August 15, 1871: Three World Wars?
Morals and Dogma of Freemasonry by Albert Pike 1871 – 1881 Edition
For a short time, this letter was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy.

Matthew 27:51–53 English Standard Version
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
52 The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,
53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
According to Bible scholars, these people were dead (who know nothing) in the *Old Testament = Sleep. They were raised with “glorified” bodies (like Christ); just long enough for about 500 witnesses to see them, then went to paradise (Heaven) with the Lord.
New Testament believers are already connected spiritually to the Lord (if born again) and are immediately with the Lord when their bodies pack up. Jonathan Edwards (1700s) did the earliest writing on this. Paul said it, and I personally know when my heart stopped, Jesus was shoulder to shoulder against me! So Heaven is where the Saved goes prior to the final resurrection and judgment. Hell is also a “holding place” like a jail prior to sentencing, when we shall all stand before the Lord. These things are abundantly clear to me, (even scripturally) yet still, you will find all sorts of opinions in this area of study.
I personally know this faith to be true in this life many a time, and I was with Jesus when my heart stopped! If we KNOW him now, we know him for eternity!
To me, the rub is that people apply what I call “linear thinking” to a non-linear and transcendent God, who is not trapped by time and space. He is already all-knowing of our future, yet still allows people free will to choose.
To the natural mind, this sounds crazy to say one can choose Salvation by the Gospel of Grace as a personal choice; while also being Divinely Ordained by Foreknowledge… Much like quantum physics, it is even more insane to try and hold the same natural principles of logic of our reasoning to the Lord God, who is not trapped by physical nor a linear existence.
Remember, within the scripture, time, space, and even the will of God by prayer, have been altered. An example of this is with David concerning Saul, (1 Samuel 23:7–13) which allowed the Lord to alter the course of what was predestined to bring Glory and worship to God – himself.
In short, just like in the physical world where we are governed by the law of gravity, the spiritual world is governed by the law of faith – rather than our intellectual theology.
Of course, I didn’t write this, yet these Apostles of Christ suffered greatly for the Gospel. In contrast, most of the “western churches” nowadays won’t even be bothered to assemble together in fellowship! Furthermore, Communists are much more committed to their cause than most believers in Jesus Christ. This is certainly tragic, but is it any wonder that Western Cultures have suffered so greatly from pluralism and the “science god”!
1. Matthew. Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, and was killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark. Died in Alexandria, Egypt, after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke. Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous preaching to the lost.
4. John. Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in a huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death.
John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos. The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey. He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully
5. Peter. He was crucified upside down on an x shaped cross. According to church tradition, it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6. James. The leader of the church, in Jerusalem, was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club.
This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7. James, the Son of Zebedee, was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry.
As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded in Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial.
Later, the officer walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
8. Bartholomew. Also known as Nathaniel. He was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present-day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia, where he was flayed to death by a whip.
9. Andrew. He Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony.
His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words, “I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it”. He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.
10. Thomas. He was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Subcontinent.
11. Jude. He was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.
12. Matthias. The apostle who was chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot. He was stoned and then beheaded.
13. Paul. He was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero in Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament.
In this chapter, Isaiah the prophet is instructed in what to do by these people who will not recognize the Lord. The believer cannot remain idle within the world in which he lives; we must fight the good fight, then God will judge and pass sentence.
