I was born when there were still 48 stars in the Union Jack, and raised as an American, holding Christian informed values. I was taught that it was the man’s responsibility to provide and defend his household, and if need be his Nation. I am not all ashamed in being taught what the good Lord’s principles are in relationship to becoming a man. I did fairly well within the Boy Scouts of America, making Star Scout – even when others went on to become Eagle Scouts. In our troop (35) we were taught to begin with Reverence (for God) as well as end with it, within the Boy Scout Creed.
Ungodliness in those days, was anything deviant or compromising with those values. Cultural Marxists (Humanists) had not yet gained control of our history and education systems, like they have today, and they had not yet succeeded in replacing the family structure in using feminism, homosexuality, and other compromising behaviors. There were only two sexes, male and female, with their roles provided in creating the most stable type of home environment, in producing the next generation of leaders and providers.
These were the values which were learned from generation to generation in those days, and the backbone of having a stable society and families. The Ten Commandments were at the basis of our laws, and sex outside of marriage, (between a man and a woman) were still frowned upon.
The 1960’s “fixed” all that: with their free love, drug induced culture and rank rebellion against the establishment and government. Some were imprisoned at the time, yet to my amazement were later made college professors within some of our “so called” more progressive universities! Many early universities such a Harvard, once stood as a beacon to Biblical values upon their foundlings. West Point honored the Lord God of the Bible, and based their moral curriculum around it.
At one time, vastly almost all our institutions were based upon these types of structuring. Yet humanism (Marxists) started pushing in to all our institutions in an effort to overthrow the Christian informed monocultures predominantly within the West. The new history being taught, became the beginning of “white guilt” and the evils of free enterprise. The media widely covered the Vietnam war, it came into our households each night and showed the horror to the public, and sometimes instantaneously! As a result of the media, (controlled by the big 6) rebellion and often treasonous anti American acts were the result, and often perpetuated by Hollywood elites like Jane Fonda, while in total denial concerning the lives of our fighting men.
At the heart of this activity was the deep state (Illuminate) even then, a hater of God, free enterprise, and free people’s everywhere! I believe that the predominate Democratic Party was used as a tool by these so-called “Cultural Marxists” which really took off after the assassination of JFK, and LBJ being appointed as President.
Yet I still wanted to be an “American Fighting Man” fighting for a greater cause than myself, and I wanted to experience the “male bonding” which took place as defenders of righteousness! Oh yeah, I was a flag waving old school conservative who looked forward in developing into manhood after High School! The anti-military sentiment (by the left) still existed as a result of the Vietnam War, yet I still wanted to pay my dues (so to speak) in service to my country, like my father before me, grandfather, great-grandfather, and so forth.
The military seemed to me to be the last vestige for the traditional male, and I wanted a taste of it! The feminist were pretty much succeeding in all other careers within our culture, including fire departments and police forces. “To me” this was sad, and the standards kept dropping towards the lowest common denominators in the name of diversity!
In my view President Johnson’s idea of “the great society” has blatantly failed, yet the progressive still pushes to undermine any last elements of the “so called” Christian culture, which has openly been opposed by many a Democratic leader as the enemy of our culture ever since!
Fast forward to the 9-11 attacks on our Nation and the military. There was a move again toward patriotism after 9-11, the likes I have not seen since before the Tet offensives during Vietnam. Flags were openly displayed everywhere, the military had pretty much gained back it’s respect among most, and the Lord God was once again mentioned within the press. I was “called up” from my reserve unit to reinforce the ranks of many who had been shipped overseas under orders for Operation Enduring Freedom, and then Operation Iraqi Freedom. We were thanked by the Generals of the Army upon our arrival to Ft. Bragg NC, in the biggest call up since World War Two! It felt great to actually be doing something about the “War on Terror” which was now all around the globe.
I was then medically retired from the Army in 2007, just prior to Barrack Hussein Obama becoming President. I can remember Hillary Clinton being the first politician in espousing negative remarks about our wartime President Bush. She said “Bush lied and people died” concerning Iraq, and the American flags began to disappear from the front porches of America once again. These anti America, pro Communists from their days in college, were at it again. When Obama was elected as President, he blatantly stated that this was “no longer” a Christian country! And once again the accusatory deep state swings back hard against any vestige of unity in our land. And the fall of Iraq after so many American lives were lost in “liberating it” make most who fault there very bitter. Yet politicians don’t care, as long as they get theirs by using the uninformed masses, and even Illegal migration and voting to justify their means.
Divide and conquer has now become the normal tactic in imposing a one world order, and replacing our culture with another. The principles of the American Revolution, versus the French Revolution, has become the norm, and most Americans will never know the difference, as they were never taught these lessons. The white man has become the oppressor, and needs to be kept down, or effectively eliminated from regaining any type of control over the cultures, (and to say otherwise) makes you a sexist, racist or homophobic – not to mention xenophobia or any other words which have recently been coined by progressives in an attempt to change the culture.
Changing the culture of the military was also targeted by the Obama administration and the Democrats. I can remember my Father once telling me that “the Army has never changed” from when he went in, as we visited my first day of duty with the Army Reserves. Yet nowadays however, a man is written up for often times just expressing an opinion – which might run contrary to the one size fits all Army which has now emerged from the so-called progressives, or maybe even the so-called “deep state”. The white male is now often marginalized, and even legally challenged in asserting himself in the functions of his duty if he is perceived to be biased in any way shape or form towards women, minorities, and even can be reprimanded for calling a transgender Sir or Mam, if their perceptions of themselves is felt to have been wrongly identified and oftentimes, there is no due process even afforded them.
This is divide and conquer at its finest, yet ironically the supposed new designed is to promote unity and unit cohesion! The truth be known, this is actually a satanic reversal of the Lord God’s order, and soon enough persecution may come to anyone who dares to express it openly.
Media control of people’s thoughts are already being censored, which parts of the big 6 like Google may sensor if receiving enough views, otherwise one can still pass under the radar so to speak. I would guess when Albert Pikes’ “Lucifer” shows up, this will not be the case, so post your blogs freely now before the thought police come and get you!
This surely is the great falling away the Bible speaks about, the earth is covered in spiritual darkness, and the people gross darkness, the “Restrainer” is gone (2 Thessalonians 2:7) – the camp of the Saints overrun, and the mother of Harlots; the carnal church seems to be flocking to.
Yet like Lot’s wife, whose heart looked back at Sodom and Gomorrah, even I must pray my heart is not taken for a love of the world, the world’s people, nor even a love for my country; which I was instructed to defend the principles of, and sworn to its Constitution.
Thanks for reading.
Personal liberties individuality and free enterprise are much more Christ like, than are tyrannical and oppressive governments who wish to enslave the masses! So how can anyone who claims the name of the Lord Jesus Christ be against personal freedoms, and then be for: an emplacement of government whose only wish is to enslave the masses to its own twisted viewpoints and control? God’s way is to have Nation States, borders, and a common language of its people! Satan’s way is to have total control of the world and its people!
There can be no common ground, one is of the Lord, and the other of Lucifer. To me, this type thinking is equivalent to taking the mark of slavery, when you could have enjoyed freedom… I just don’t get it, one’s more of a God honoring system, and the other deeply Demonic!
People sure do have some twisted viewpoints nowadays, yet while in being a believer, they should really be able to understand these “basic principles”, as to not to be enslaved.
Call me nuts if you like, but if you haven’t actually started “In” Christ, you are better off in NOT studying the things of God (without Him) than to further heap condemnation on your soul by further learning about the spiritual workings of God, that do not apply to you. Now I’m not talking about being a conscientious person and living to a certain level of decency, not at all, but I am speaking about trying to be something you’re not, namely a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, if he hasn’t called you to do a work of salvation within!
That’s right, it is better to remain ignorant of the things of God, than it is to have a head full of Bible knowledge which will only compounds your damnation, because of the fact you had knowledge of it.
This is why Jesus so condemned the Scribes (Academics) and Pharisees of his day, as they actually created even more evil people by trying to teach them by the letter of the law, things they were unable to keep or even understand.
Now why folks may draw a dichotomy between the Old Testament saints and the New, the spiritual conditioning of “self-righteousness” is the same.
You see, as I have said many a times before: you cannot teach someone into Jesus! Either God the Father does a work in them, or he does not! Jesus said all that the Father gives to him WILL come, so by doing evangelism in the flesh, (independent of the Lord’s leading) you might be actually creating more of a problem for those people, than if you simply let them be.
I believe Satan, also called the butcher, knows this principle very well, and went out in creating a False Church, (Antichrists’) with a twofold function of destroying the actual ecclesia’s faith, and bringing in the religious unregenerate to fill ranks in confusing the actual brethren, all while creating the false gospel of theology, which only appeals to the natural mind, yet has no power over sin!
Thus creating twice the sons of Hell than themselves! And Jesus is calling them sons of hell, because it seems to me that, this is where such people will end up – rather than hades, and remaining in “the sleep of death” (where the dead know nothing) until the judgment day: and the separation between the sheep (found in the Lamb’s Book of Life) and the goats, who are headed towards the pit: I surmise.
Having said all this, the important thing is that those who have actually started in Christ, remain in him, until the day we are called to be with him, outside of our earthly tents. The rest is but academics, and many have fallen away because of such false and discouraging teachings.
Years ago, I had moved into my first house it was very rustic inside with real pine in the small living room, and I had a German shepherd who shed allot. My Mom really didn’t like to come in due to her allergies, and my Dad would laugh as it sort of had the theme of old naval ships, and a musket on the wall, so he called it “old military” concerning my decorating.
I guess one would have to know my parents to understand, they are sort of old school high church people, who settled into the conservative Presbyterian Church, after my Mom, and supposedly everyone else accepted Christ as their Savior.
I had always felt “the odd one out” in our family, although no one dared and express it outwardly. Proper Church doctrines were expected of us all, and the family pressure might be felt to some degree if you stepped outside that dogma.
One day I received a gift which puzzled me from my parents, it was one of those dime store type of plaques with a boat on it which read, something about following your own paths – or the way of one man seems different to another, but does not make it wrong, I don’t remember exactly as I discarded it.
Still later as a single man, I became frustrated in meeting the “right women”, and in going to church, it even made me more conscious in being alone; especially if a member mistakenly thought the girl next to you was your wife! This was social church to me, and it seemed most of the sermons I heard were just a derivative of what I had always heard before. I thought that my problem must be that I was spoiled by the personal relationships I had developed while in home fellowship, when I lived in the City.
I also remember later my father cowering as he was “worried about my Salvation”, well that really set me off – and I refused to make a public spectacle of myself praying with my father in the driveway for the entire neighborhood to see! It was downright insulting, but actually the root of this whole problem was Spiritual!
Allow me to explain to the actual brethren who are reading this message, as only they will understand what false brethren can never see!
1 John 4, tells us to discern by “spirit” (not just doctrine) in whom are in Christ, and who are not! This is the only way one can tell, if it was done by legalism of doctrine all you get is a lot of “Puritans” running around. Sadly, this is what most church people are – they have never really been born anew into a new life, they only adapt to themselves the Bible; which really was never written to them to begin with: this is Satan’s finest trick since the creation!!!
That’s right, they are of a “different spirit” than those of us who actually follow and abide in the Lord! How do I know, most will ask at this point, and the simple answer is by experience. Still others will then say – “you are judging” in condemnation. No, that type of judging was done to me by my father, which I mentioned earlier.
I really tried very hard to “fit in” with this systematic theology system, yet the Lord had another plan for me! I had managed to get voted into the leadership by the Elders (Session), yet even when performing very well in my schooling, and surpassing the board of Elders, it was very evident to me, that they did not really want me in an office of higher leadership!
Some who have never met me, have the audacity to say that I am bitter, yet they do not understand what spiritual persecution is (Rev 17). They can never understand that it was the Lord himself who removed me from “the system” and later he spoke through an actual Elder in the Lord, proclaiming that they did not actually want Christ who’s within me around their church!
After my near death heart attack while in water survival in the service, I was not able to financially give to the church, and I hardly could stand long enough to perform my office as a Deacon. The head Pastor “borrowed” my testimonial about being shoulder to shoulder with Christ within the Church newsletter, yet they would NOT allow me to speak about it to the congregation! They later found out just why I left, and offered to let me light some candles at Christ’mas and give my testimonial. Yet I refused, as a testament to walking with my Lord, and not giving the oxygen of acceptance to a surrogate for Christ!
It was the Lord himself who showed me to follow him, (which I had thought I was attempting to do for years) and oddly enough he used my attempting to finally receive my accreditation by a Bible school to show me that was not important to him! I now understand that most people who “even” started with Christ, and claim his name as Savior, are in “no way” spiritually interested in actually abiding and listening to him personally, it is as if that is too close for comfort ( having a love for the truth)! They are much more interested in playing Church, to justify themselves before God, yet remain comfortable while in the world!!!
In fact they are enemies of the Cross, (as Paul called these brethren) and of the “Spirit of antiChrist” as when John first coined the phrase.
I sit and write this today, because in my mailbox just went a letter sent to (a new assistant) pastor, who has never met me. The so-called Elders or Session, has put their dirty work on this poor man, of striking our name from the membership rolls of their flock (as they call it) – which is much-better than having one’s name stricken from the book of life within Jesus’s flock! *( I was forced to put people out of the Army, so I know how this feels.) The really sad part to me is, whereas the ones who knew me, know exactly what occurred and why I left, yet they are too cowardly to stand, or either don’t want the stench on them!
They gave me a month to show up, or reply: so “tong and cheek” I suggested a refund of about half of what I gifted them – as they also purposely lost my founders memorial brick, to boot!
I’m just waiting for this to get back to my elderly father in the next county, this will be very hard, the level of idolatry towards church is unbelievable by such people, and although it was marked personal and confidential, I hope to the Lord that it doesn’t reach my Dad, this is not his fight but he loves to be in my business, and I’m afraid it might kill him!
If it does, I guess that I cannot allow Satan the victory of using his false brethren to tarnish the work of Christ within me. You can’t allow this very powerful spirit to enslave you, you must push in as a bond servant to Christ himself, or risk losing the gains you have made by not listening to him!
I can’t take credit for the title of this post, that honor goes to Brother Justin Hughes, whom I fellowship with. Yet I can share that a couple of years ago now, the Lord showed me that the “man of sin” (the Devil) will be seen as the “God loves everyone” model, which most of the churches deceivingly seem to follow and preach.
Recently, I spoke with an old minister friend of mine, from my days in street ministry. He was upset that Breitbart news had done a story on a NY Cardinal affirming the Pope’s (Antichrist’s) comments to a gay man who were (more or less) conservative Roman Catholics.
Yet the real problem is that nowadays (a Bible understanding) Satan, deceives by twisting doctrines which are only written to be understood by actual brethren, and sends them forth to the religious’ about Jesus Church, (false brethren) better understood to the world as systematic theologies or doctrines.
This carnal understanding to the natural mind, is the inroads Satan has always used to deceive man. Whereas, truth is only understood by abiding in Christ, our lifeblood into the kingdom! Drunk on the blood of the Saints and the Martyrs of Jesus, is actually talking about this spirit of error, or spirit of antichrist, in those who have started with Christ, yet will not be conformed to Christ’s image, nor are they willing to “enter in” by way of the cross (enemies of the cross) !
Instead they take the broad road, mouthing doctrines of the Bible, and claiming Christ’s Holy name, apart from being crucified in him. This is Satan’s Jesus, who is unholy and loves everyone! A work of “the butcher” himself, to undermine, confuse, and ultimately destroy those who have started on the narrow road towards life everlasting – now!
The Pope (Chief Antichrist) is only the “mother of Harlots”, yet there are many, many, more of her offspring, some of whom started off with us, but became diverted to another gospel. Or natural (carnal) understanding of the scriptures, in nearly all cases nowadays. This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” who John first spoke about. This spirit of error had come, and was also coming.
The line of demarcation today is not Roman Catholicism and so-called Protestantism as it was in the past, nor is it even the Bible or non Biblical teachings – but rather it is only identified by 1 John 4, of what Spirit is someone of? It is my firm belief that Satan’s coming as an angle of light, will deceive and destroy many, and indeed all of the world will worship and follow him straight into the pit for everlasting destruction!
Most Biblical scholars cannot even distinguish between the terms Antichrist (s) and Satan himself, as to them, it is all dependent upon Biblical contexts in a particular passage. This is an example as to why without the revelation of the Lord God, even the greatest of scholars are limited in their (natural) understanding.
Therefore, it is my contention that the unveiling of the Devil will probably begin with the Global Antichrist, and filter down to the local Antichrist (s) (Satan in a Jesus suit, clergy) who will “kiss towards” or worship the destroyer of the actual ecclesia, by their close surrogate for Christ – the world’s church systems and their all loving Jesus!
I have been warned not to try to impart what I plainly have been shown by my Lord, to the world and the church beast, as it will do no good to those who cannot or will not see. I’ve been instructed that the equivalent scripture is in Paul preaching the Gospel, and immediately withdrawing so that he too would not become a castaway (Disqualified). As it is too easy to be distracted by the things of the world, and even doctrines, than to simply continue to abide in the true vine, who is Christ himself, who is our Salvation!
Isaiah 60: 2 (From Benson commentary)
For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth — Ignorance, idolatry, and all kinds of errors and vices; and gross darkness the people — Like that of Egypt; the most palpable blindness and infatuation as to divine things; but the Lord — Christ, the bright and morning-star, the day- spring from on high,
This is where we are in human history now, it is just a matter of time till the man of sin is unveiled. Yet as promised in Isaiah, Satan shall be overcome by the sword of his mouth, and the brightness of his coming. This is the New Jerusalem, the city upon the hill where we shall rule and reign with Christ for a thousand years.
Black and White: when I was in the Army as an equal opportunity advisor to the commander, the school celebrated a book written by a professor which disputed the very idea that the color Black was associated with evil, and in contrast, that the color White was associated with good! Is this where civilization has come to nowadays?
To my understanding, now (SJW) educators are challenging our children on this very basal issue of being brain washed by the establishment, in believing that the absence of light (darkness – blackness) is depicted as bad, and that (white) light, which overcomes the darkness is now somehow evil.
This concept at the very root level, is actually a rebellion against the long understood principles of humanity, and although perhaps not realized, the Lord God Himself, and any truths which he alone is the creator of! Of course this is all politically based biased thinking, in an effort to overthrow any statutes of the past, and is an attempt to throw away any beliefs of a righteous God.
This is the perfect illustration of what Isaiah 60 verse 2 is speaking about, currently underway to the latest generation! Darkness and Gross darkness covers the people… We have thrown away the Lord, who is the light of the world, for Strong delusions, which the Lord God has seen fit to hand those over for their own destruction, who have rejected him and any of his ordinances!
This is all prophesied to happen towards the “end of the age”, and I submit to you that we are on the threshold of the destruction of Babylon, the destruction of the loosely cobbled together feet of iron and clay, which I view as global multiculturalism, to use modern day terminology.
2 Thessalonians 2 The Great Falling Away. 2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition…
I will not attempt to convince anyone of what I can plainly see taking place today, especially in using the scriptures, as this is the same mistake most churches make in trying to teach people into light – truth/Christ, it just cannot be done. As even understanding is a gift of God alone to a naturally darkened mind (Spiritually speaking).
And this is the basis of all light to the world, and without Him we can see nothing, I’m waiting to see the son of perdition be unveiled next!
I once had a soldier who served in France during World War Two tell me candidly “dammit, you dig your own foxhole, if you jump in mine at night, I’ll kill you”!
I served in the military from 1980-2007, I can remember my father saying that the Army had never changed since he was in! I was excited about that, and the manly bond I would develop with my brothers in arms. I was raised on the pledge of allegiance to our flag, took shop classes in school, and played Army with the boys around the neighborhood.
GI Joe’s were our toys of choice, we would dress them for combat against the enemy, as it was our duty to protect and defend our way of life, family, and liberty!
When I became a man, I enlisted to serve our country, and the noble land I had come to respect, in no short measure because of my accelerations in the Boy Scouts of America, who taught us reverence foremost, and last in the Boy Scout oath. We were morally straight, and that meant exactly what we thought it meant – straight, not a deviant from the moral code of the family structuring!
We defended our positions of moral leadership, in preparation of someday providing and protecting our families from the evil forces in the world, which would threaten our great land. All of the men in my family since the American Revolution served in the military for at least one enlistment, as this was what was expected for a man to do, in all the generations past.
My father, my grandfathers, and before would have been appalled at the idea that their daughters would venture into a Navy shipyard, or Army barracks, for fear of what might happen to them! Is that culture wrong for holding such values? I think not, as these values (roles) which evolved as the most effective means to secure the family for the next generations to come.
Of course these are also godly values, which the Creator designed us to live by, and the more one strays from this design, the more complicated and corrupt a society becomes. Douglas Mac Author said it best: “Pluralism is the enemy, the longer it is allowed to exist, the bigger and bloodier the wars it creates!”
Natural law, is appalling to progressives, as it lends restrictions to “an all embracing pluralism”, which at its furthest limits, cannot even distinguish between right and wrong, good or bad – as relativism becomes God. This is why all the philosophers I have ever spoken with, seem distant and even ungrounded from any type of absolutes! This is where the limits of human understand reach their end. Or as Solomon put it, “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity…”
This was the basis for the Western cultures, which have been immensely blessed throughout history. Or what some might call the Judeo – Christian principals. When you discard these principles on the ash heap of history, as being antiquated, you are actually declaring that the Lord God our Creator is antiquated, and you enter into the darkness of natural understanding.
So, to get back on point, we now have a military which is “all inclusive” of everyone and every life style, which by its very nature must exclude the values I have aforementioned from our past. Equality is a myth, it does not exist, nor ever has! It is the lie (false narrative) which only allows the most powerful groups to maintain control over the masses, it is mere tribalism when all the different peoples who happen to be in power, insist upon their own lifestyles! Democracies cannot function when everyone insists upon their own ways!
What should we teach our boys who will become men, and our daughters who bare the offspring of our men? Are they equal, or are they created differently for a reason? Many nowadays would not even consider such a question, as that might infringe upon their (so called) rights!
In speaking with a Soldier buddy of mine at Ft. Hood, TX. He informs me that many women now take the testosterone hormone, so as to keep up with their male counterparts in the infantry! This is what gives me so much disgust, as I remember back to a simpler time when only men were allowed in combat arms, and rightfully so! It seems to me that the white straight male, is the only one excluded from having “rights” within our military today. If a female (for example) cannot function well in a field environment, the male soldier is at the very least, brow beaten to conform to the “New Army culture” and asked questions like; “are you saying you don’t want her in your foxhole”?! If the man answers in the affirmative, his career, and possibly even his personal freedoms become endangered by officials who are more concerned with their (political) careers, than they are with what is most effective and advantages’ to the whole of their troops! And, I am talking about the lives of both men, women, and deviants there of…
The military used to be able to legally discriminate based upon its needs, now it seems to me they only discriminate against the glue, in which once held together the very fabric of the esprit décor of the American Armed Forces.
Scriptural references: (which are only written to an actual disciple)
Of course, I am most guilty of violating the so called establishment clause, which not only separates Church and State, but wholeheartedly wishes to overcome any of its restrictions within society today. For, like righteous Lot; I am “vexed by the filthy conversation of the wicked” 2 Peter 2:7.
The “Church” is guilty of trying to teach the wicked by carnal means, the things of God, which are only given by the Lord to his people, they do not apply to the general population, which most evangelists fail to understand! 1 John 4: test the spirits, Matthew 7:6 give not which is Holy to dogs.
As for my people, (Spiritual Israel – not carnal) “children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths”. Isaiah 3:12.
Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them; Joshua 1:14
Manly men…. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Corinthians 6:9
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonians 2:7. – IS WELL UNDERWAY!
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Isaiah 60:2.
Come quickly Lord Jesus, the whole creation groans for the revelation of the sons of God!
I wanted to post an updated version about the “Kings of Persia” as prophesied in Daniel Chapter 10, mainly because of the pathetically weak Biblical writings which I have read on this subject since I posted it years ago. Perhaps this is because most churches wish to remain comfortable within the world and not offend anyone? Or perhaps they are actually spiritually blind, and can’t see past their academia? I’m not sure, but what I do know is what I can plainly see, combined with having 30 years of Bible instruction, and all types of eschatology: but then there is the Truth which is only understood by the Spirit of truth, who is Christ himself!
The overthrow of the west, is an attempted overthrow of anything Christian within its traditional framework. It really starts to snowball after the events in – 2 Thessalonians 2, as “he that restraineth” (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way. This does not include the Lord’s people, yet it does include the general grace to the world, which helped to keep sin down (restrained it) to a certain degree.
After the restraints come off, sin will run rampant upon the earth, worse than in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. What do we have today, unbridled sin which looks to overturn all of the past restraints predominantly instated by western cultures, and people.
To make matters worse, sin insists on being non-restrained and will war against anyone or any culture which attempts to stand in its way. So then, “Multiculturalism” symbolized as the feet of iron and clay (Adam meaning red, clay) . In Daniel, shows a cobbled together world unified of different people, cultures and religions ruling the world, this is also known as Babylon, which represents a culture of sin and corruption apart from the Lord God’s order.
The most interesting phenomenon to me occurred after the 9-11 attacks on New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon. Islamic Terrorism thrusts the United Sates and all western powers into global conflict, (the Global War on Terror, which I played a small part in) and it has not slowed or stopped since, despite thousands of live lost, wars and rumors of wars, despite many attempts by the powers that be wishing to accommodate such fanatical people’s.
These Muslim (Persian) people have been allowed to migrate (for a large part) unchecked by western authorities, who were once charged with protecting their populations. As a result a slaughter is occurring to any “old school” western ideals and cultures (Christian informed values) , for a perverse progressive objective in the blending of the world together as one. This blending together, is the feet of Iron and Clay prophesied in the book of Daniel. In Daniel chapter 10 – verse 13-14 it is explained to Daniel in significant spiritual detail, what shall befall thy people in the latter days! I must interject at this point that this is not just physical Israel, but indeed is spiritual Israel, the ones grafted into the vine because of Christ.
The spiritual significance is that the Kings of Persia, are demonically driven forces who are allowed to battle the Lord God, and his Angels; most notably the Chief Angle Michael, who has been given authority next to the Lord God. These Demonic beings (the kings of Persia) – the Muslim world, are allowed to dominate, desolate and destroy all traces of the Christian informed culture, and their people.
This is blatantly obvious to anyone who has eyes to see, it is much more pressing than just a theological study of eschatology and the apocalyptic passages! It really amazes me just how passive and weak many of these scriptures are presented by Bible academics, who have no power nor light to see or digest an all-encompassing and consuming problem of this present age. No rather it is presented in the “safe space” of being merely academic, and therefore open to conjecture and interpretation by those who are puffed up within their own understanding of the scriptures!
I believe these Persians are exactly what they are described as being in the latter days, and will nearly destroy white western cultures, except for the fact that the man of sin (the Devil) will come first in playing God, who will be worshipped by the world as such. 1 Thessalonians 5-3 “and the world will cry peace and safety”. The wicked man of sin will perform many signs and wonders, and basically demand to be worshipped as God.
Then, Christ will return in the clouds and destroy him with the breath of his mouth and the brightness of His coming. Hence Babylon, with all its outwardly expressed sin in the world will be destroyed, and the thousand year reign of Christ and his Bride will begin. At this point, the judgment day will hold off till after the thousand year reign of Christ, after the very last rebellion of Satan and his people, who are judged not to be in the book of life, and cast into the lake of fire for eternity.
This is an opinion piece on the struggles I have experienced concerning others with my walk in the Lord.
I was accredited as a minister in “Christian Counseling” by the grace of God due to the study I performed in six years of “street ministry”. I am certainly not the most qualified person who ever endeavored an academic position in the world, but my experience like many others who are seniors now, most certainly has a certain degree of credibility.
About 25% of the population are sociopaths, and within that percentage fewer are full blown psychopaths statically speaking. Still others exhibit some form of a Narcissistic personality disorder, or (NPD).
What I have discovered throughout my life, is that being empathetic towards others can often result in being targeted to sociopaths, as they are an easy mark for the sociopath to bolster themselves up on the back of the unsuspecting “nice guy”. As an actual believer in Christ – in action and in deed, one may become crushed and devoured by these wolves, especially the ones who claim Christ’s name as their own! These false brethren as described in 1 John 2: 18-19 as ANTICHRISTS are actually ones who started with the Lord (like us) but did not finish!
In other words, they went back to the ways of the world and became twice the sons of hell than before they started with Christ (Matthew 23:15). The religious leaders of today are the same animal, albeit we are functioning under a new covenant.
This “Spirit” of antichrist manifests itself within the Church, a type of surrogate to actually moving and abiding in Jesus Christ oneself! This is what a sneaky bastardy enemy the actual disciple is up against, but we must learn how to stand in truth! This antichrist spirit will try to crush and destroy the actual disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ within them. And that is why the scripture speaks about principalities and powers, not in a vague sense like most think, but actually within the unregenerate or natural man.
If “Satan’s” people manage to crush the faith (Christ in us) then Satan has succeeded once again in destroying a child of God, and now days these antichrists take great joy in using the scriptures to do so – a type of witchcraft, as they are not used in the spirit of truth!
Beware, lest you share the things of God with these pigs and get devoured and trampled underfoot!
For the Brethren
Matthew 7: 1- 20 is about discernment, and notice its starts with dealing with a brother first, and then moves on to walking on the narrow way with Christ yourself.
Even more hurtful than the sociopath (to me) is an actual brother in the Lord who uses being on the “narrow way” with Christ, to tear down or minimize other brethren while justifying themselves in doing so. I believe many “born again believers” seeking to be seen as leaders or devout men of God, many times may ostracize those they see as opposition.
This could also be an indicator of having a Narcissistic personality disorder: (NPD) is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated
feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings.
The victim of a Narcissistic personality is often troubled by just what offence they committed to deserve such treatment. No known therapy exists in treating a Narcissistic personality, as the Narcissist thinks there is nothing wrong with them and will not seek help.
So, being on the “Narrow Way” with Christ, allows the Narcissistic personality to justifiably create a wall between people or viewpoints, or people they deem as inconsistent with their personality, or simply people they do not like.
This is very sad when concerning the brethren, (who are to be part of the same body). Yet ego’s aside this has always reared its ugly head since Peter and Paul had a go at each other. It is a good thing that the Holy Spirit of God does a work within His own, otherwise there could be no resolutions within the body of Christ.

Such doctrines can only exist where those who expound them will not take Scripture in the round. There is a very simple rule; all Scripture agrees within the Covenant. Sadly, to hold irresistible grace is to deny a lot of Scripture and make whole doctrines out of just one text.
What kind of people would we be if we had been arrested, by the Lord God forcing himself on us? This is about the salvation from sin unto God before we die, and the proving, trying and testing of His people. We are not slaves of God but children in the New Testament.
