The sentimental ideals about fixing the world, so we can all live in peace has never, nor will ever be accomplished by appeasements or cultural “pluralism” enforced by “compassionate governance” no matter how large and powerful. Rather, big government controls have instead led to the oppression of the populace on mass! In short, this is why even Global controls won’t work!

Just over a year after returning home from active duty at Ft. Bragg, NC. And just joining back up with my old unit, I suffered a massive heart attack which I was not expected to survive. However, Jesus my Lord lay shoulder to shoulder against me on that day of 02/06/2005, at the very moment my heart stopped beating!
Do you know Jesus? Without him, only deep loneliness and darkness would have occurred to me at that moment; and perhaps maybe I wouldn’t have had a second chance at life?
The Bible tells us, that without Christ we all would be doomed to hell upon our deaths! This great love of our heavenly Father was in sending his only-begotten son to die on a cross in our behalves!
Don’t be foolish if you have not personally come to Christ, as I am speaking about an eternity apart from such great love with everlasting suffering in a lake of fire, with Satan and all his demons!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Always be careful to not put yourself above others. This has always plagued mankind throughout history!
WARNING: This is all about religion and politics, so if you are easily offended, don’t read this!
I don’t watch TV. a lot anymore, as I don’t like the ungodly and anti-nuclear family influence being put out today by Hollywood or other decadent broadcasters. The level of defiance to a once healthy family life has virtually disappeared from the screen. This is all in an effort to discredit any idea of the traditional Western culture once learned from the Bible in a sighting of the structuring of the paternally led family, inputting the man as the head of the household. This all started with the influence of feminism in the 1960s and supported by those who subscribed to Marxist doctrines, in an effort to tear down the principles of stability within the family structure, devoid of God’s ordinances.
A couple nights ago, I just happened to walk past the TV and witnessed two males engaged in homosexual sex with each other, the one giving the other oral sex, in having his head surging between the other’s legs! I was shocked, and asked the wife what program she was watching? She replied, it is about farming, so I thought it was safe to watch! Now, admittedly it didn’t show any genitalia in this act, but the idea that children might see this on a regular TV show, I found deeply disturbing with the idea of desensitizing them to what in the past would have been considered degenerate and wicked sexual behavior.
This desensitizing of children is perverse and wicked! But that is a part of today’s agenda against God, I’m afraid. Parents and others are now terrified to speak out against what is now called “Marriage Equality” for fear of reprisals! Never mind this is only about 2% of the population engaged in such behavior, but now we must not only tolerate it, but we are being forced to promote it!
The Bible teaches that rebellion against God is as Witchcraft; so to discredit God (or His existence) is actually to follow the Spirit of Satan, rather than the Holy Spirit of God. Obama’s push for an anti-western culture, which is also called anti-colonialism is really centered around the ideals of the predominant traditional white cultures of the world. White of not, the thrust of the “Critical Race Theory” being taught in the classroom, also known as by Conservatives as Cancel Culture, is really an effort to discredit the merits of a once God-honoring Western Civilization with debauchery and a rebellion against morality, traditional ethics, and ultimately the laws of God, which are not even allowed for display any longer within a public courthouse.
This is all really just hidden bigotry and hatred to the Lord God, and his principles governing all of our lives – whether we believe in him or not! The Bible teaches that “my people perish because of lack of knowledge” (of the truth). So all history must be destroyed and rewritten and taught to accommodate the destruction of the order of the family, and ultimately the loss of civilization as we have known it!
Apologizing for the “white man” and his (Straight) Paternal Society, as discriminatory to all other peoples is the key. This is why Obama embraced and projected the “Rainbow Flag” onto the White House, as a symbol to the world of his post-modern and anti-colonial viewpoint of how he thought the world should be; and even stating that America was no longer a Christian Country. Everything he embraced was done in animosity towards so-called colonialism, the God-honoring values of the past, and to be blunt – racism, that the world has suffered with from the time of Babble for millenniums!
We have now entered a post-modern age going from absolute values to relativism. Christian ethics to pluralism, where everyone does what is right within their own minds. In retrospect, this is not only the rejection of God within society but is actually an apology to Satan, forever having engaged in God Honoring Values!
The most concerning of all this is that Conservatives and Christians will now be targeted as “EXTREMISTS” when in actuality they are not extreme at all, only they hold to a level of decency no longer honored by a post-modern and embittered population, who hate any viewpoint not ascribing to their own! The really odd point to me is that; progressives like these believe they are being virtuous towards others, in now what is a complete reversal to the values and natural laws of our past!
Today I was reminded just how lonely death would be; if we didn’t know Jesus!
It all goes back to original sin, like when Cain murdered Able out of jealousy! Though shall not covet what thy neighbor has, it is the Lord who gives or takes away. It is righteousness that either exalts or destroys a nation, not its wealth. If we forget God, then He will either correct us or destroy us!
Long videos don’t upload too well for me, it starts with 8 levels of whiteness on, and for selfish reasons, I wanted to post my call at 9:40 in. I’m hoping Will won’t mind…(2/19/2021) The subject is: “If you could ask every American you would find out that 90% wish Pres. Trump was still there. What was done to America will go down in history as a dark time for the country.”
I called into Unite America First at 9:40 to encourage Will that can never leave you nor forsake you! There is no place our consciences can go to get away from Christ, (even in death) to be separated from Him, once we indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit for the day of redemption. Anyone who doesn’t understand this truth as written in 2 Corinthians 5 in the Bible, has a limited understanding of the scriptures taken in contexts; and my Near Death Experience is proof of it – “even if one were raised from the dead, they still won’t believe”!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ frees men: Totalitarians enslave them! The dumbest thing I have ever heard is not to include the Lord in Government!

In our ever-increasing immoral society we will see demonic activity grow ever stronger prior to the arrival of the “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked, the son of perdition” commonly called “The Antichrist”. In this video (although I jump around in my thoughts) I try and give a brief description of the demonic oppression which I have learned in my life. The man who trained me in ministry had 3 doctorate degrees and worked as an Exorcist in Baltimore City.
It is by the Grace of God that we come to Jesus Christ, in repentance towards Salvation; we are sealed for the day of “redemption” of our glorified bodies the Bible tells us. Yet we must choose to walk either in the Holy Spirit, or in the flesh. The Lord will not force us to “yield to the Spirit” in the workings in our lives, as that is up to us to decide. The book of Acts explains to us about the Holy Spirit, and that the “natural mind receives not” the things of God; so that too becomes a choice of our free will – to walk in the Spirit, or the flesh. It has taken me a long time to understand this rift between the “spiritual” brethren, and the “natural” ones!
Progressives can’t possibly love what the United States was designed to be!
I have waited all my life to see the United States obtain the status it enjoyed after World War Two.
President Donald Trump delivered that to us in, energy production, exporting, manufacturing, jobs, health care, and defense not seen since the late 40s, and it was terrific!
The whole time the socialist Democratic Party despised the President. They made up phony narratives on Russian Collusion since he was elected. They wanted open borders to flood the country with illegal immigrants to vote socialist, (Democrat) to support the welfare state, bankrupt the American worker and health care system, and were against a border wall to stop the bleeding of the American citizen both literally and financially!
Then the corrupted Democratic machine uses what amounts to mail fraud, corrupted local officials, and dubious (non-secure) voting machines, to sabotage the reelection of Donald Trump; and in no small part by using our enemies money (The Chinese Communist Party) Globalists, Silicon Valley, Big Tech, and of course the leftist media while undermining our laws and National Security! And all this after a false narrative of Russian Collusion with fabricated evidence to impeach a President who did nothing illegal in making an innocent phone call to Ukraine and to destroy his reputation in the courts of public opinion! Why, it was to cover up the real scandal of not Russia, but indeed China, which would have limited, (if openly investigated) Joe Biden and family for his run for Presidential office!
The dirt of these style politics is comparative to a dirty pot, calling the clean kettle black. Yet, that’s just what Progressives do, and be damned to anyone or any ethics which stands in their way! This is NOT Americanism, but rather Globalism at best and Espionage at its worst!
I think that Donald Trump is likely to be the last President who puts the interest of our country first; like we had in our past, up until Eisenhower – the President I was born under.
Since the 1960s, the Vietnam War, Abortion, Feminism, Homosexuality, Ethics and Morality have plummeted, with the possible exception of MLK’s lead on Civil Rights for the Black and other so-called ethnic communities.
With the dismantling of the family structure since antiquity, it was all put in effect by Marxists and Malcontents, primarily using academics and the media with (Global driven currency) platforms. The Cold War was also a war on information, the church, and the very fabric of our population. I shall never forget the North Vietnamese flag being waved in the streets while American lives were being sacrificed in the war on Communism! This anti-American sentiment had never been experienced before in this country, nor been broadcasted right into our living rooms for people to see!
So, instead of everyone banning together under the banner of Americanism, Communists sought to divide us in what today is called “identity Politics” and in the very same breath will try to play both side of the field and try to embrace unity, equality, and yet cultural diversity, focusing on our differences!?
In a content society Marxism cannot flourish, you must add adjudicators to sow discontent of the masses, making the Government ripe for a take over!
Education no longer teaches the pro-American values of our founder, rather they continually focus on the failings, greed, and selfishness of the darker side of our history. They focus on reparations, special considerations for ethnicity, gender, even financial status.
Why, because it gives Government power over the people and creates a greater dependency, just like the oppressed Native Americans of the 1800s!
This is a continual trap of a form of enslavement, rather than personal liberty and individual responsibility. A local law enforcement, small governments within States, Counties and Municipalities, help ensure we never have a “run away federal government” in which the people have no power over!
A one party system, narrative, and an abandonment of non-critical thinking, are required to hold such power against the will of the people. Ideally, a one party political system, media, financially controlled markets, resources (and environment) have been the most effective ways to a controlled population by an elitist ruling class, known as totalitarianism. This has never been about a right verse left issues in the world, rather it is about citizenry of a country verse enslavement!
The youth today need to understand these principles; and not just “go along to get along” in receiving good marks in school, social groups, virtue signaling, or becoming a media sensation. Or not only them, but those who do not subscribe to mass controlled media and governments, will all become enslaved; perhaps never to regain their personal liberties!
Corinthians 12:7-10 “…in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I [Paul] was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong”
Bear One Another’s Burdens
1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 5 For each will have to bear his own load. 6 Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. 7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
This is a fascinating video below: marking the significance of 911 to America, by Rabi Jonathan Cahn.
It is a warning for repentance; it shows the birth of our economic strength in New York when Henry Hudson sailed up the river and founded Manhattan with a trade station on September 11, 1609 this was “the gate” later having two “Twin Towers” the entrance to America’s economic power!
The Pentagon began on September 11, 1941 as a Military Superpower; this was predicated by God, to a nation’s founding once dedicated by Washington’s inauguration on 26 Wall Street, Financial District, Manhattan, New York City on April 30, 1789. Washington warned not to turn away from God, or we would face destruction.
The new financial group was known as the “Buttonwood” group (Sycamore tree) later called Wall Street. On September 11, 1789 Alexander Hamilton was named the first U.S. Secretary to the Treasury.
All this represents the blessings and downfall of America as a Superpower to the world, the symbolism is reflective of the warnings given to Israel before her destruction.
It was a Sycamore tree (the Biblical symbol of blessing) which was destroyed in Manhattan on September 11, 2001, along with the Pentagon as a wall of Military might. 9-11-2001: was only the beginning of judgment towards America in 7 year cycles– (Biblical Jubilee) which rather could have been a renewal of blessings if we had repented from our wickedness instead!
The Harbinger II : Part 1,2,3 with Dr. James Dobson
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
I could go on and on writing verses (like the link holds above) yet it is fruitless for the heart which has become hardened to God!
As an accredited (Reformed) minister, I have watched the world spiral slowly downwards away from the Lord God into liberal relativism or pluralism; there is no anchor of truth broadly, only a consistent drifting away from the Lord and His Holy Righteousness, which is only made complete in Christ!
Alas, most conservative, or extensively Christian website are marked as “Ultra-Right” websites, often said to be fake or extremist in content! I have personally been witnessing that most web advisors increasingly mark such pages as Dangerous to your computer, citing everything from Phishing scams (Like Sean Hannity’s new book – Live free of Die) or the “forced closed – for content violation website” AMERICA’S FRONTLINE DOCTORS, which was forced to move to (I believe PJ medias) SUMMIT NEWS website, because of a BREITBART NEWS live broadcast on Monday, July 27, 2020: listed, then later taken down by Facebook, including removing Tweets by President Trump – it had 17 Million Views!
Then Twitter, YouTube, and some other “Big 6” web advisor browsers marked the new America’s Frontline Doctors web page as Malicious Sites with having Trojan Horses, Viruses… which exploit security vulnerabilities in browsers or other applications!
World Net Daily (WND), another Christian based conservative news site, is described as “ an American news and opinion website and online news aggregator which has been described as “fringe” and far right as well…”
Jihad Watch is a blog run by Robert B. Spencer (who’s books are listed in FBI training materials) has been described as an anti-Muslim conspiracy website, pushing “Islamophobia”. Yet Robert Spencer is a devout Christian man stating that he is pushing “the ‘good’ kind of Islamophobe” in an attempt to warn the (Western) World of the dangers of Jihad.
Other Christian site like Dr. James Dobson’s Focus on the Family are increasingly marked as extreme and dangerous, although they have been around for years, in helping families raise children, some having specific needs.
What I am witnessing is a tightening of the Christian informed culture, as being biased and bigoted, not because they have changed their positions; but because the world is becoming increasingly hostile towards them!
This election year, with many failed attempts to remove the President of the United States, it is increasingly obvious the lengths that the left and Globalist will go to in dividing and destroying the country, and even the world in dictating their policies – which have even taken form of protecting the environment, food water and population control.
Oftentimes Christian people like to remove themselves from events of the world, calling them “worldly”, and indeed they are, yet calling events worldly does not negate the ungodly impact upon the world while standing for the truth of God.
We are all responsible for moving and abiding in Christ for others, in all our endeavors while standing against evil. It seems to me the so-called “ultra-right sites” is merely a reflection of just how far left the Country (and World) has drifted away from God’s righteousness.
This is specifically true on the internet, which ever-increasing calls evil good, and good evil: albeit for the love of money, power, and control!
This is a screenshot of an email I received from Back to the Bible; it shows the true meaning of what the Apostle Paul was speaking about in “running the good race” for Christ. It is pure and simple, it reminds us that life is a challenge, and if we do not want to be disqualified, we will push forward in our faith to obtain the victory in every matter we might encounter!
Paul wrote this as an encouragement to the early church, it was not a threat based in fear of losing one’s Salvation. As this was written in love, in showing the great power available to all believers who will put their trust in Christ alone throughout their lives in faith. It was never intended to be used for a worrisome foreboding, in using guilt and fear, (which this text it is oftentimes manipulated the mean) – yet it does not!
The natural mind understands NOT the things of God…
The elect, providence, the cross, running the good race, saved from sin, eternal life, regeneration, sanctification, Holiness, redemption, leaven (puffed up) and the contexts of sound doctrine cannot be completely understood by the natural mind alone. Rather it is by “Faith Alone” through the atoning blood of Christ that we are made complete.
If we attempt to grasp our faith in Christ by intellect alone, we will become frustrated in discovering we have no power over sin! Yet, more often than not many believe they play apart in their redemption – and eternal security by works; and yet works without faith is dead!
It has been my experience that Salvation is in “quantum mechanics” or a Spiritual issue, (as it is conceived in the mind of God) and therefore has no beginning and no end, so it cannot be grasped through our natural understanding of the scriptures alone, but only by faith which also is spiritual and God inspired.
I believe Paul understood this, and is why he preached Christ, and Christ Crucified “alone” then instructed the brethren to move in faith beyond what is elementary.
Yet men still contend and are content to argue the essence of what Christ has already accomplished at Calvary! In my opinion, this is because men refuse to try and fathom the infinite love and mercy by grace our heavenly father has given to all who would believe on the only-begotten son of the living God, who suffered on a cross and given as a ransom for all who would put their faith in him.
Salvation seems to be a never-ending argument (like many others) in using men who founded many different “denominational” positions and beliefs’. Often the later imperfect founders are scrutinized for their brutality in pushing their beliefs on others, “and rightly so”. Yet this does not negate nor diminish the power of the Gospel in any way shape or form!
By FAITH, we are saved by GRACE, and not of ourselves, that any man may boast.
We are Bridesmaids and are to remain FAITHFUL, not out of fear but because of our love for Christ. Are they’re those who will be lost: absolutely – but not because of their human efforts, it is simply because they would not remain faithful to Christ – and Christ alone for salvation. This boils down to the heart, not dogma nor our personal failings, but rather our love for the Bridegroom. Which is all based in God inspired faith, not religious works of the flesh.
Maybe if we keep our mouths shut, no one will notice that we belong to the Lord…? That sounds like Peter, prior to Pentecost!
[PS; I forgot to mention energy & environmental controls as well – towards the end of the video.]
Is a tool of Satan in manipulating our emotions to carry a burden around that we need not be carrying. So, we seek relief by trying to atone for it! Yet the Bible teaches that we are only accountable for our own sins alone before the Lord, and that Christ shed his blood for the sinner that we might be set free! If we confess OUR SINS, he is faithful and just to forgive us, as we are redeemed by the atonement on the cross alone, and not of our own efforts!
Who will be on top? That is the consistent question I have experienced with every human being within my life, and it is a carnal need to reign over others.
From sibling rivalries to the workplace, from the job site to the pulpit, from ethnic groups to politicians, it always the same power struggle – especially in an election year.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
People used to be a little more gracious and even respectful of their fellow man and (woman). Children used to look up to older and wiser people – even the elderly… but not so much nowadays.
The content of one’s character used to make the difference; and it was not just in hollow words, but rather in action. As a whole, most people who merited a position – as a doctor for example, had to pay the price of hard work and study to rise to the top of their professions, and they could not skip corners while doing so.
Once you start compromising with meriting a position for the appeasement of others – you have just destroyed the integrity of that position earned. I was a marine engineer, so I will start first with the field which I am most familiar with.
I started off learning to be a sailor, I was taught the ropes by my father. As a teenager I experienced a hurricane while at anchor in a cove of my family’s sailboat. The hurricane force winds picked up a two-man lifeboat tied on back and used it just like a kite above us. I tried to pull it back down, but my Dad just grabbed he knife and cut the line, sending it rolling over the water like a tire rolling downhill! When we got back into port the next day boats from marinas were beached and crushed in all fashions, I am sure costing the owners millions of dollars.
My point is, I had to learn how to be a sailor first by experience and then by some more formal training I learned later in the Coast Guard. I bounced back and forth from my shipboard positions from a boatswain’s position to an engineer. Each time I learned more and more what I was doing and became more proficient at whatever it was I focused upon.
What really started to annoy me after my time in the Coast Guard was human politics. I often think about the (liberal) leadership of the men who hired me at the Maritime Museum, they loved my work as it made them look good to others; their vessels being well painted polished and most importantly functional. Then came the social programs, senior aids set up by the City, youth training and work for the more unfortunate high school students.
For the most part this was fine with me, and I was able to develop some deep friendships in generally guiding people in different tasks of deck maintenance, and an understanding of basic shipboard piping systems and machinery.
One day an old inland buoy tender took on some water rather quickly; I grabbed Patrick who was a rather big kid, and he helped me haul dewatering pumps to the scene, and running the equipment as I frantically resealed the seems leaking between the planks!
Patrick and I were very satisfied with what we had achieved in saving the old boat from sinking! But then came in the “Who’s going to be on top” political posturing; I couldn’t believe the results when the museum supervisors returned the next morning. It turns out there was a big scene made on the pier in front of patrons of jumping up and down by the woman who took care of cleaning inboard. It seems in my rush to grab Patrick to dewater the boat, that he was sorely missed in his deck swabbing routine!
I was called to the office; it seems they wanted me to apologize for saving our little inland buoy tender from sinking! First it was the museum director which I explained I simply had no choice but to act immediately to save the boat. I thought it was settled; until the assistant director called me into his office. I told him the same story I told the director; but tears soon fell from my coworker _ and I was told “now, now, look what you made her do”!
The next problem of “who going to be on top” was from an older man, a veteran of WW2 in Saipan. Our relationship started off well enough, but he was a very proud man who knew little about seamanship, engineering or maintenance, in which I was instructed to perform years prior to the gentleman showing up on site. Incidentally, the old inland buoy tender later sank at the pier – as I was pulled off from taking responsibility for it!
I don’t wish to get too personal, but he liked to drink; I guess like many an old veteran who have seen the horrors of war. But all I knew at the time was that he wanted my position aboard ship. I showed up two hours earlier and left two hours later than the rest. But I didn’t mind, I needed the job, and loved the old ships, and never had challenged the wisdom of my supervisors. I was still young strong and dumb – as far as what I was forced to do, and sometimes beyond safety standards of the day (like going up in the rigging without a safety harness), yet I did what I was told to do in my 20’s. One day I had to organize a paint party aloft (on a raft) in painting the side of our submarine. The problem was I had a student who refused to out on a life jacket, so I let him board our raft without it. That was a big mistake, yet nothing was said and we went to painting. If memory serves me correctly, the raft hit a wake from a power boat. The big kid suited up in work coverall fell overboard; and to make matters worse, I soon discovered he could not swim!
I knew enough not to jump in after him, (for fear he would pull me under with him) so I grasped for him as he surfaced for air. It was only upon the second try that I was able to grab him as I knew where he would surface the second time!
I pulled him aboard the raft, and we secured operations. The good Lord was with us that day, for if the teen had drowned, well I’m not sure what would have happened to me or the supervisors of the museum. I can tell you one thing however: they were not happy that OSHA was called in the next day! The Captain was hit with the safety violations that were consistently overlooked, and as the inspectors exclaimed; we have heard it all before, “I’ve sailed the Seven Seas” nonsense!
It only got worse for me, the senior aid who lived aboard was given charge over me; I resented how he sharp-shot all that I did, and I was even asked by him “what project I was going to do the next day”, then he started the job himself to purposely undermine me. One day I was told to go do a job by the old soldier, and I did it. When I got back, he asked me if I had any questions? I said, Yes, why couldn’t you have done that job? With that he picked up a wooden chair and came after me; nothing happened to him, but I was told to wear my hard hat! Real funny hu? Have I mentioned all the workforce was Black besides myself, it shouldn’t make any difference, but it enevidably did. The next day the senior aid (who was not even a City Employee) was made the work supervisor, he started ranting and raving about his perceived racism on my part. I think, it was simply a case of me not liking (the stunts that he pulled on me at every opportunity to aggrandise himself). So we all just sat and listened to our new boss of the job, as I looked over to another black man who I worked with quite frequently.
The Captain came down the ladder and was terribly angry that no work was being done. Then he immediately was told by the senior aid that I was a racist; then my coworker spoke up (who was also a senior aid) exclaiming – “Captain, I never had a problem with Roland”! He saved my job that day, and I am most grateful to the man who stood up for my character when I most needed him! Sometimes perception is everything, but it may not be the truth – but only a perception. Racism has always been a problem with humanity, just take World War Two as an example, it was filled with racism on all sides.
Unfortunately, it is inherent in the hearts of fallen man, and has always been divisive. And like any noble undertaking, it takes work within individuals of all ethnic groups and cultures to overcome. No one despite their “virtue signaling” is above falling victim to this condition, if for no other reason than growing up in a specific culture, or perhaps just insensitivity towards others; which is often the result of youth. Politicians use it to swing votes, tyrants use it as a mien to sow discord and cause political uprisings, and all for that same old reason — WHO WILL BE ON TOP.
I was a trained Equal Opportunity Representative to the Commander while in the Army, we were taught when cultures collide, people divide. I was chosen (I believe) as a favor from our Black First Sergeant, in a predominantly African American unit. He understood my character and he also understood the stress soldiers would have, some of which would use racism as an excuse to get out of being disciplined for shirking from their responsibilities. I later became a Chaplain’s Assistant which also required Equal Opportunity training.
The Bible teaches that Nation is translated ETHOS (in the Greek) and is where we get the term Ethnic Group from. In Matthew 24:7 “For Nation will rise against Nation and Kingdom against Kingdom and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers’ places” –  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. prior to the return of the Lord.
In the end of days the Bible speaks about wickedness and lawlessness, perhaps this “New World Order” championed amongst many politicians who are pushing for this (“new world orders leader”) – who will eventually pose as God before the end of the age?
This is what Satan has always wanted; to be GOD upon the earth, and I suspect he will soon be getting his wish – at least for a short time, prior to 2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Peace on earth, Good will towards men – from another fallible human being…
Parables in the scriptures must always be read in contexts and the totality to other scripture, in relationship to the covenants – (the time we are now in).
Here are a couple examples…
Matthew 13: 1–9, 18–23 The parable of the sower of seed, is a growth parable for the actual believer ; just like in –
John 15 : 1-27 with particular examination of verse 6.
It is most interesting to me that the scriptures talk about a humble and contrite heart (faith of a child) being required to follow the Lord. In contrast to this, Pride and coupled with Elitism seems to me to be the way of controlling others – even as a small god. The “new world leader” will be revealed as a caring and loving sort towards humanity, but the Bible later speaks about an abrupt change of demeanor as one demanding to be worshipped as God: or face death! The first step in controlling people is to be able to track them, and that you cannot buy or sell without the “Mark of the Beast” (Satan). The Lord will crush him with the brightness of his coming, but in my estimation, we have to have a build up first towards global tracking and control – for the “Good” of all Humanity!
A believer is here to glorify God as a reflection of His work in us. We are to be “vessels of light for Christ”, not of our own efforts – but because of His grace and providence!
This is a hard lesson, but definitely one worth learning!
