Political Parties, the Federal Reserve & Jesus

Have you ever wondered – as I have – how the two-party political system began in the young nation of America?

One day, in some casual reading regarding our new nation, I noticed that this split party development appeared to have sprung from the dilemma of needing money and the attempted means of procuring it. I was both intrigued and a bit stymied by that. I have never had a natural inclination towards understanding economics or financial matters. But volume 4 of The American Heritage: a New Nation tells me that $80,000,000 in debt required plans & actions to repay it – plus expenses incurred on a daily basis ‘to carry on government functions’. Tariffs & subsidies, securities, debt consolidation – bailouts, taxation. bonds & credit – you name it, were argued, opposed, and instituted, leading to establishing a national bank ‘to provide more credit’. Alexander Hamilton was for, Thomas Jefferson against – ‘…the breach widened between them, and before the contest was over, America had two political parties.’ (p.309)

I never pursued more detailed research on this subject. But now that our world – the entire world – is spiralling down the rabbit hole, and many don’t even realize this, I’ve recently been paying more attention to finance. Not so much mine – I know what my deal is! and I try to place my trust in God, not money – but national and global monetary issues. Nations crashing financially don’t happen overnight, nor does their downfall come from nowhere. There are roots that produce this fruit. So I’ve been looking a little more closely into the situation.

~~~

I am not saying that I’m doing detailed research into monetary structures & processes. And I am definitely not saying that I’m really ‘getting it’.  Still difficult for me, still a struggle…But something is clicking, in the overall picture. Events past & present, like puzzle pieces, are starting to fit together.

Unpayable debt transfers power and control to the sovereign power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity or justice because they have so much wealth already. (Rep. James Traficant, Jr.-Ohio, addressing the House, United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303

The information contained in Mr.Traficant’s speech, quoted above, is more than upsetting. It explains to us some actions that were taken in 1933, approved by then President Roosevelt, that re-structured the government that you think you now have today. If you’ve already heard about this, or know it, it is still shocking & sobering. If new to you, it will change your whole view of the United States of America & her government. Traficant tells us that, “Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots…”

He continues, “Since the inception of central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.” ‘”Since the inception of central banking…” Bells going off, anyone? The ‘sovereign power structure’ mentioned above is the ‘they’ we are talking about here. It is what people are calling the New World Order global elite. It is still alive & kicking – or trying to kick, anyway – and look where it got it’s start. Not sure I really want to say ‘Thanks’ to Alexander Hamilton….

~~~

The gist of James Traficant’s speech to Congress in 1993 seems to be a clear explanation of the Federal Reserve Bank/System – what it really is, how it basically functions, and what this has meant, and still means today for you & I, as American citizens. It is not pretty. But We, the People need to know the truth here. Reading his words might give some a crucial overall understanding of what goes on in some areas of our current political system, and the world, today.

 

( Note: At this time, I am unable to connect to the above link to James Traficant’s speech for more than a few seconds. Then the page goes blank. Before it does, however, there is enough time for me to read that Traficant was framed for fraud & corruption in 2002 – if I correctly recall – then jailed for 7 years. He passed in 2014. I did not see any mention of the circumstances of his death in this piece. -9/21/2016)

 What grabs my attention here, as I extrapolate on this information – coupled with my minimal knowledge of global intrigue, institutions & assemblies, is the fact that money seems to lie at the core of much that has transpired over time, leading the world to the brink of a looming Armageddon. Getting it, paying it back, hoarding it – and finally, using it in all its aspects, to control others. Using it as power.

~~~

In the past year or two, I’ve seen so many alarming headlines, warning, informing – in an apparent attempt to escape unprecedented financial loss by certain investments or purchases involving gold. To me, as someone barely ‘getting by’, such drama seemed surreal. Now, I’m beginning to see what the big deal is. Whole other elements exist in this world, than what I have known in ‘normal living.’ I am not necessarily referring to the wealthy in their entirety. I refer to those whose whole world becomes drastically threatened when markets crash & stocks drop. I refer to the ‘panic on Wall street’ crowd. Most of all, I refer to those who operate in darkness, and shades of darkness, while appearing to you to be standing in the light. I refer to those who partly comprise that of which Paul writes in the first chapter of Galatians: “…our Lord Jesus Christ…who gave himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world…” (v.3,4)

I believe such people fear losing much more than just money. Because the love of money is the root of all evil, I would venture that such persons, couched in that love, are enslaved by evil (whether they know it or not) and produce evil. They spin webs that trap others. These ‘others’ probably include – or included at one time – you & I. These web-spinners do not care about your well-being or mine. They care about maintaining control. Over us. Crashing economic/financial structures bode, for them, complete loss of power & control.

I suggest that maintaining this control commands such extreme importance for these people, because they think that in some way this control represents their own ‘salvation’. They are way off the mark here. Perhaps they are allowing themselves to be deceived, because for them, the truth is unbearable. Neither money nor power & control can help them, ultimately. They are, or are associated with, antichrist. Unless they repent of this, and choose Christ the Saviour of the world, their doom is sealed.

What Went Down in Eden…?

There have been certain Scriptures, throughout my years of Bible reading, that have troubled me. Often, I had to – and sometimes still do – shy away from them. There is enough uncertainty & inherent threat in life, without that which is supposed to comfort & illuminate me, adding to it! Until I can get a better understanding of these Words, I have to ‘walk away’. I do not disbelieve them. I just can’t handle them. In fact, in Peter’s 2nd. epistle we are specifically warned about those Scriptures ‘hard to be understood’. If you have yet to become ‘learned’ in these things, they can destroy you.

There were other Scriptures that did not trouble me, but yet…I sensed truth not revealed. I couldn’t put my finger on it. And most of the time, I don’t think I was even cognizant of the fact that I even perceived this. I just kept on reading…

~~~

I think the reason for these ‘gaps’ might be found in Jesus’ statement to his disciples, that there was much more He had to tell them, but they could not bear it yet. There is a place in our spiritual awareness & growth where we, too, cannot bear knowing certain things. Just as you would refrain from exposing your children to certain kinds of topics, so God does with us.

Until we are ready.

When that time comes, the Lord will bring that information to you, and lead you by His Spirit down paths of increase in learning. In some cases, the information might not ‘go down easy’, even then. You may need to use wisdom in managing your intake. But as you become acclimated to a greater fullness of truth, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. It is at once awful & glorious. It occurs to me that such instruction could be compared to Peter’s counsel concerning discipline, that in the moment it takes place, it is ‘not pleasant but grievous’ – yet afterwards it yields the ‘peaceable fruit of righteousness.’

And I must say here, that I am truly enjoying these times of ‘peaceable righteousness’!

~~~

A riveting Scripture which has always caught my attention is the beginning of John 8:44. Speaking to certain Jews (who sought to kill Him, v.40), Jesus said point-blank, “Ye are of your father the devil…”, adding, “…and the lusts of your father ye will do.” Jesus was speaking to physical beings, as far as we can tell – sooooo….how could Jesus say their ‘father’ was a fallen angel/devil? The Hebrew word used here is a primary noun meaning ‘father’, and can include ‘parent’. Now, it would be one thing if at some point a physical, human being became influenced or possessed by another entity or spirit, but I don’t think that would qualify such entity/spirit as a ‘father’.

Hmmm…what are we talking about here?

On sJesus & Phariseesome level, I always felt that Jesus’ words were literal. These persons were of the bloodline, or lineage of Satan. I didn’t understand that, but in my gut…it resonated.

How did such a condition come into being, though? I didn’t know. The obvious answer seemed preposterous, so I left it alone.

~~~

Today, the obvious answer no longer seems so preposterous to me.

~~~

These same Jews protested, We be Abraham’s seed! Abraham is our father! (v.33, 39) We have one Father, even God! (v.41)

Jesus saw it differently.

“…ye seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth…this did not Abraham.” (v.40) (Meaning, you are NOT of Abraham…)

“If God were your Father, ye would love Me.” (v.42)

…let me clarify here, with more of our opening verse (John 8:44): “…and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning…”

So we have these certain Jews, who sought to kill & did not love, claiming faith-filled, Godly lineage, a bloodline descending from Adam, a “son of God” (Luke 3:38) In fact, they are not who they claim to be. Or appear to be. They are rather, according to Jesus, descended from Satan. I submit that it is possible they, or some of them, did not realize that. But they somehow entered the timeline of human history through a procreation process that hearkens back to Satan, and includes flesh & blood.

~~~

…at this point, one’s thoughts might turn to the Garden of Eden, where we know the Scriptures tell us about an interaction between a serpent and a woman named Eve. The conditions of a satanic being and flesh & blood are met here in this environment. It may never have occurred to you before, that perhaps what actually transpired in this Garden was an illicit sexual act; if so, you may be revolted by the thought. It is awful. It is sickening. When this concept was first presented to me, decades ago, I was probably being guarded in heart & mind by God, because I was able to stomach it. But I wasn’t sure if I believed it.

Over the ensuing years, the idea faded into the background. But recently, it has re-surfaced. Seen in light of the globalist world that has been developing, and its accompanying movements & entities now pushing to a culmination point, I now find this explanation of the Fall palatable & clarifying. The pieces fall into place. For me, they SO fall into place!

~~~

Here I want to construct a chronological sequence of events, that hopefully will illustrate the basic process of corruption that has transpired since ancient times –

  • In the glorious & hallowed Halls of Heaven, Lucifer, God’s most beautiful creation, rebelled against Him.

a. Satan (Lucifer?), and those who followed him, were cast out of heaven.

b. It is considered that this catastrophic event occurred in the space of time    between Genesis chapter 1, verse 1 & verse 2. The violent power released here might explain v.2: “…the earth was void, and without form.”

c. At this point, it might safely be conjectured that Satan begins to plot his comeback.

  • God brings the garden of Eden into being. He creates man & woman within it.

a. Enter the serpent. (Here comes the ‘comeback’!)

b. This serpent beguiles & seduces Eve. (Note: Assuming this was an actual physical sexual seduction, the DNA was here corrupted. The intended embryons27-th (2)ic process that would have transpired between Eve, the *virgin & Adam, a son of God, was usurped. Eve’s firstborn, Cain, carried ‘bad blood’.)

c.  *I say ‘virgin’ because sexual activity between Eve & Adam is not mentioned in Genesis until after the Fall.

Question: Did the serpent/aka Satan/Lucifer somehow know about a future plan of God to bring HIS firstborn into the world through the human procreative process? Was this a pre-emptive attack, hopefully thwarting His purposes by tainting & transforming the bloodline?

(Even though God’s plan of redemption through our Savior was a direct response TO Satan’s seduction – perhaps Satan did not have full foreknowledge.)

  • Now a bloodline is tainted.
  • Eve bears another son, with Adam: Abel. That bloodline is not tainted with the serpent seed.
  • Time passes. Men multiply upon the earth. Two blood lines exist & compete

Question: Did Satan think, Hmmm…my chances of domination will increase if more ‘people’ on the earth have MY tainted blood..what can be done about that?

  • So  “…the sons of God {angels who left their first estate as did Lucifer, in a sense} came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them…” (Genesis 6:4)

~~~

Immediately following this verse in Scripture, we are told that God “…saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth…”  It was so bad, in fact, that “every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”.  Every imagination…only evil…continually. “…the earth was filled with violence.” (Genesis 6:11) I have to consider the appearance of such pervasive, consuming iniquity on the earth to be related to a possible serpent seed bloodline, and its reaching of critical mass proportions finally accomplished by the couplings revealed above, in verse 4.

~~~

(At this point in time, God brings the Flood, wiping out all mankind except Noah, his three sons, and their wives. The slate was wiped clean. 

But it did not stay that way.

Next post, some thoughts on that…)

Before Returning to my First Love…a few thoughts on ‘Weird Stuff’

 

For probably about a year now, I have been drawn more & more into exploring what I call ‘weird’ topics. Another term for these topics might be ‘conspiracy theories’, or something similar to that. I have wondered, along the way, if I was wandering too far off course. At times I have actually felt in danger – of what, it is hard to say – and have had to back off for awhile. Recently, the Lord reminded me that the Scriptures tell me to be rooted & grounded in Christ, not the increasingly gripping lure of ancient ‘myths’, civilizations, and personages both physical & otherwise. There was never a moment when He told me to give up my research on & writing about, such subject matter, though. And so for this reason – and the fact that I was able to withstand & process it – I believe I was being led into truth that He had prepared me to be able to receive.

And so I am now a believer in things ‘weird’.

~~~

I write this post because I want to try & summarize what I have come to see as reality. Though unnerving, even nightmarish in its substance, Scripture appears to back it up. So I want to present a simple overview.

~~~

…but afterwards, I think I will be focusing much more on my first love, and returning to things Revolutionary, Founders & God-related. I believe some of our greatest answers lie in our history & Constitution, and some (many?) of our leaders need to submit to that premise – so that also will be included in my subject matter here, going forward. To everything there is a season, and I think this particular season of ‘dark matter delving’ has just about ended, for me. It is time to look to the light in the land of the living. It is time to turn back to hope, and it is time to be refreshed & instructed in God-given solutions that can restore & sustain America, yet beautiful but gravely wounded.

~~~

 

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (William Shakespeare / Hamlet Act 1. Scene V)

 

While I strongly believe that EVERYTHING is under God’s control and direction, I also now believe that within His control is allowed the ‘control’ of others. These ‘others’ manipulate. It is God’s choice to allow this. There is a Divine & perfect reason for this, which one day all creation will see & know. At that time, the rejoicing of the righteous will be off the charts! but at this time, we who are in His name need to practice remembering this, and remembering to rejoice now as well, in His promises to us, and in His faithfulness to keep them. We need to actively employ these promises in the Word, and the knowledge of Him, because in the end, this is our only escape from the other realities that exist in this world. These realities are gaining momentum, it seems, and are working towards an age-old agenda. The King of Kings will crush them, once & for all, in a day yet to come. But until then, I think is is good to at least be aware of the existence & intent of these ungodly powers. They are God-wannabe’s, and will stop at nothing to convince themselves & everyone else that that they are God – when, of course, they are not.

~~~

 

Some years ago, I came to the conclusion that essentially, just about everything boils down to the conflict between Christ and anti-Christ. That may seem over-simplified…and if you don’t believe in Christ or His Word, then this may be where I lose your interest. Hope not.

I can see no other possible explanation for EVERYTHING ‘wrong’ in/with this world, than that the age-old tale of Lucifer rebelling against the Most High is still playing out. Like leaven, it has spread slowly, invisibly & inexorably throughout time & history, moving towards a final culmination. As we get closer to it, we notice more & more ‘change’, or perhaps we don’t notice it…or we do, but don’t see it for what it possibly is.

I’ve written a few articles detailing my thoughts on this matter. Rather than recounting them all, here are links to them, if you are interested:

 Lucifer Keeps Busy

Once, “the Anointed Cherub”…but Now?

Frustration: Eternally Old

~~~

There are those who have been following certain happenings worldwide, and who see patterns & real possibilities that I had not – until this past year or so. Specifically, there seems to be a global & celestial plan underway to usher in the return of Lucifer, in the guise of the anti-Christ. Many are involved in this.  Much of it is probably not apparent. It is happening behind the scenes, worldwide – yet perhaps hidden in plain sight.  What is apparent probably confounds & frustrates those who see it. Or they see it as entertainment, fantasy – but it may not be so innocent.

Other evidence that is presented either doesn’t interest the average person, or it is dismissed as myth or some such fabrication. Increasingly, I am not so sure that it should be.

I doubt that any theater of life- government & politics, education, science, economics & business, religion, the media – is exempt from its invasion.

~~~

 

I don’t see how the appearance of certain themes, in certain television shows, springing up in a cluster all at the same time can be ‘coincidence.’ Perhaps people are being conditioned to view malevolence in a MUCH less threatening way. Suddenly ‘Lucifer’ & ‘Angel from Hell’ present the viewer with a quirky, cutesy overlay to beings from a realm where nothing is quirky or cutesy. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ (my favorite show, actually) is devolving more deeply into that being-from-another-realm-returning theme. Suddenly I’m noticing that. The X-Files suddenly returns. In ‘Super Girl’, ‘Flash’ and other television series,  inter-galactic/hybrid/alien beings either become part of Earth’s forces, or attack it. Our screens are deluged with plots & images that get us thinking about situations & conditions that do not, or we think do not currently exist – and get us more accustomed to them. More accepting. Less resistant should these situations develop, or to allowing their development.

…so, if you are considering the implications or validity of my suspicions, it needs to be pointed out that such events would all be part of God’s Plan for the ages. Though unnerving, such happenings are not outside of His Hand or knowledge or purposes. Having briefly laid out my general worldview & suspicions, I want to emphasize that we not be consumed by them. Be aware. But seek instead He who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

He alone is the Way out of this.

~~~

Jesus, the Way

Once, “the Anointed Cherub”…but Now?

It seems that my attention is being more & more directed to that ancient Biblical event, spoken of by Jesus in the 10th. chapter of Luke: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”

Warfare against Powers & PrincipalitiesSatan falling from heaven….

It seems to be generally accepted that before this falling, Satan was that glorious angelic being known as Lucifer. Big difference, though, between the ‘before & after’ persona…and motivations, of this being. Again, it seems to be generally believed that pre-fall Lucifer was wondrous, dazzling; those who inquire further, seeking details. learn that Lucifer was ‘perfect’ in his ways, the anointed cherub. and from within his very being emanated musical glory. He ‘was upon the holy mountain of God’. He was in the garden of God! (Ezekiel 28: 13-15)

Lucifer had everything going for him…something went wrong, though. We are told, ‘…iniquity was found…’ in him. (v.18) The verses following this first indication of reversal in Lucifer’s condition, seem to describe pride & vanity…we know from Isaiah 14 that Lucifer rebelled against God, his Creator, deciding that he was going to become like God. I don’t think Scripture actually says that this mutinous being intended to oust the Most High…from being the Most High…and ruling in His stead…but I get the feeling, that was the plan.

Whatever the depth or magnitude of Lucifer’s deluded intent, God’s ruling was “…thou hast sinned; therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God.”

~~~

…thus, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”

~~~

(Note: I am not aware of any Scripture that actually states that Lucifer’s name was changed to Satan. However, my Bible reading & study over the years has led me to that assumption, as it has many believers of Scripture, I think.

~~~

Now…Bible scholars have postulated that there existed a possibly great time lapse in between the events of Genesis chapter 1, verses 1 & 2. That a catastrophic, cataclysmic event took place during that time, which rendered the earth ‘…without form, and void…’ Darkness prevailed upon the deep, and the earth was in undistinguishable ruin.

Can you see the hurling down of Lucifer and his legions to the earth, as the cataclysmic event that caused such destruction?

~~~

…assuming that it was, we now have a mighty fallen angelic being roaming about this scene of violently darkened destruction, an angel who had possibly only seconds before walked in the glories of Paradise, an elite & highly privileged creation of God. I don’t think any of us can actually imagine what he must have been feeling. But I would think that, on the heels of this initial shock, Lucifer’s thoughts may have been something like, “Now what???”

“Where do I go now? What do I do next?”

…and those desperate, frantic questions probably led to this next one:

“How can I get it all back?”

~~~

I am telling you now that, at its root, (whether known or unknown to its participants,) whatever plans, programs or agendas that have been or will be implemented under the heading of globalism, One World anything or New World Order, are the results of Lucifer’s attempts to get it all back.

~~~

…now, Lucifer was created (Ezekiel 28:15). He came to consciousness in fullness of his power and beauty. Having known nothing less than an exalted state, once cast down, it would seem to me that he would grab at ANY possible means of regaining it. Let’s take a brief but more detailed look at what this exalted state encompassed –

Based on the Scriptures pertaining to him found in Ezekiel 28, we can learn a few things:

!) It sounds like Lucifer’s wisdom & beauty were unparalleled (v.12).

2) He was in Eden, the garden of God.(v.13)

(We know from other Scriptures in Genesis 3, that the serpent was found in that garden of Eden, not one whose name means ‘day star’…so, this is perhaps somewhere or something else? Perhaps this ‘garden of God’ existed in the heavenlies, just as the heavenly Tabernacle, after which the earthly one was patterned.) Not only was Lucifer in this garden of God, but is described as having coverings of bedazzling jewels & precious stones (v.13) – which possibly represent attributes inexpressible, according to C.S Lewis in his Christian Behaviour.

3) Tabrets & pipes were prepared ‘in him’. Music resided within Lucifer! and surrounded him! (v.13)

4) Lucifer was deliberately placed by God in a high – possibly the highest – position of government over all of the rest of the creation of God, “upon the holy mountain of God” (v.14). (This verse can possibly be construed to represent promotion to a place of authority in the affairs of God.)

5) Finally, it seems that Lucifer had also ministered in the office of priest, offering worship to God and having, therefore, access to a nearthe Mercy Seatness to His throne. (v.14)

(Lucifer is called the “anointed cherub that covereth” (v.14) What does this imagery bring to mind? The cherubim with overspread wings, covering the Mercy Seat on the ark of the Covenant, right? How could there be doubt, then, as to a sacred & priestly aspect of Lucifer’s existence?

We don’t know what kind of conversations may have occurred between Satan & God, at this point. One possible aspect of the forward-going machinations of Satan, would have been an attempt to restore God’s original earthly creation. Donald Barnhouse, in his The Invisible War, suggests this. To me, it does seem most likely…Barnhouse also states that Satan was/is still trying to show God that he can do it. If I can only prove to the Most High that I can get this whole mess all straightened out, renewed…if I can fix it!!!…then maybe I can get back MY former glory and still have a shot at running the show…might be how Satan thinks still today. Because Satan’s goal is to bring order out of chaos (for his own selfish, vain reasons, of course,) Barnhouse continues, organization is a major tool. But we know how so many – if not eventually all – organizations collapse. Underlying malevolent agendas, love of money, lust for power…look at the ‘great’ civilizations (organizations) of the past. Gone. Corruption scandals touch even the most initially (apparently?) benevolent committees & corporations …their CEO’s etc. can’t keep their hands clean, one way or another. (I recently heard something unsavory even about the Red Cross…although I never looked into the details…) My point is, as Barnhouse writes,”Satan cries, ‘Let there be organizations!’ And there is chaos. He calls out, ‘Let there be United Nations!’ And there are vetoes and wars….He commands, ‘Let there be brotherhood!’ And there are race riots…”

Satan can’t make it happen.

What he does bring to the table is…more death & destruction.

~~~

Think about these things when looking at the world around you, the world across the oceans…the world both visible and INvisible. Don’t count on the organizations of this world-system. Yes, some are still good, and may yet be so for awhile, but keep in mind, IF they are good, then God is probably on their side & in their midst. He dwells yet in some of us, and therefore His touch and impact is still felt in the world. In addition to His sovereign actions. The Scriptures tell us that He works all things after the counsel of His own will (Ephesians 1:11,) so…keep that in mind, when observing the downward spirals of what appears as loss or defeat, or catastrophe. Satan is far from the only player…even with his hordes of fallen angels (Revelation 12:4).

Think carefully through with whom you align.

There is more going on than you know.

Lucifer Keeps Busy…

“{Being}…vigilant of where the real battle lines lie, can postpone for awhile longer the inevitable reign of the Antichrist, and provide yet another generation of Americans with a chance, not only to live in this, the most kindly and benevolent society the earth has ever seen, but to have a chance to attain true salvation.

(William T. Still, New World Order: the Ancient Plan of Secret Societies)

~~~

I cannot emphasize enough, how central to understanding the realities of our kaleidoscopic world, is the ancient intention of Lucifer to control it.

I used to think that once God cast Lucifer out of heaven, he was essentially dismissed. Case closed. Yes, I knew that Lucifer/Satan was cast down to earth (Revelation 12:9), and still prowls about down here, as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).  But I always assumed these actions of roaring & devouring were simply the result of his Lucifer-Fall-of-by-Gustave-Dore-1866_630w_tnhateful, malicious nature. He didn’t get what he wanted.  Jesus got that!  So instead, Satan was/is ‘acting out’ a resentment so strong that it consumes. God was/is letting him get away with it, up to a certain point in time; there will come a Day, when Satan’s time of causing trouble will be over. (Revelation 12:12) 

It never occurred to me that Lucifer/Satan was/is still trying to be like the Most High. (Isaiah 14:14)

~~~

Now…Satan isn’t stupid. He must know that he’s never going to win, right? He knows what took place at the Cross.  Or does he?   If he does, I would wager, he was/is counting on the rest of the world not knowing that. As long as he can fool people, as long as he can deceive & blind them (he probably half deceives himself!), he can get away with quite alot of counterfeiting. For many seasons, he has done that. He is doing it now.

But maybe he is unable to stop?  Scripture tells us that there is no truth in him (John 8:44) ….that has to be a form of hell right there. Does he try to convince himself that all that untruth IS truth? Going forward, does he seek to manipulate circumstances to ‘confirm’ those deceptions? Is this why we see endless, repetitive bouts of corruption in business & government, lusting for & abuse of power, crimes of passion, theft, murder? Working out his lies through the unwitting – and sometimes NOT so unwitting – devices of men, he has woven his ill-conceived motives throughout known history, wreaking & reaping horror, misery, and perdition.

Is he incapable of accepting the truth of his never becoming ‘like the Most High’?

In her book “Honestly”, author Sheila Walsh (once a co-host on The 700 Club) shares the story of her depression & resulting breakdown. She learned, while in a rehabilitation clinic, that shame produces a need to control your environment so that it validates a false concept of yourself, one in which you are NOT ashamed. You force your surroundings to lie to you. To bear ‘false witness’ to you about yourself. It is too unsettling, even horrifying to face & accept the truth.

The deeper your shame, the more desperately you seek control.

If no one or nothing in your spheres of activity contradicts your well-entrenched deceptive self-image, fine. But should there arise a challenge… look out!!! All bets are off.

~~~

This is not to say that any one of us has not, at some juncture in life, sought to work that very same cushioning ‘mojo’ around ourselves…let’s face it, everyone wants to feel good about themselves. Denial, as they say, isn’t just a river! Not endorsing this behavior, but being realistic about it. People do it. I do it, or have done it.

But the more a person looks for truth, or the Truth, the more those behaviors become apparent. Clinging desperately to lies will become so destructive that, if one wants health & life, he or she will be backed into a corner, and will launch a re-think about themselves and their activities.

Herein lies the difference: Satan/Lucifer has not done that. And, it seems, never will.

So he is doomed to perpetual control machinations, in both the visible and invisible realms. Which, I think, is why – as I stated above – “we see endless, repetitive bouts of corruption in business & government, lusting for & abuse of power, crimes of passion, theft, murder? ” These bouts are worked out, into & through every arena of human endeavor. At times, we may have been complicit in them: “For ye were sometimes darkness…” (Ephesians 5:8)  Whether we were or not, however, this Satanic agenda continues today.

“…..this idea of staging, manipulating and controlling the circumstance and the psychological environment of the individual is very much what today’s government, mass mainstream media and Hollywood is all about.” (Bernay’s Mass Mind Control…)

~~~

“…of molding and shaping not just one act, but your regular and ongoing behavior into one that is predictable and fulfills the desires of the controllers.” (Bernay’s Mass Mind Control…)

~~~

“As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government {???} {question marks mine} has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented.”  (Propaganda)

~~~

Yes, that agenda definitely continues…

…and so the next logical thought might be, Okay, but how do I combat this? Starting where you are, this suggestion has been made: “Be yourself and think critically on your own.” That may sound deceptively simple, weak & inept. But as you think it through, this strategy makes sense.

“…they’ve been pushing collectivism to condition you to think that your personal journey is irrelevant in the bigger picture” so that you buy into the engineered concepts & constructs of reality that are presented to you, without questioning them. (link)

Question them!

~~~

Do you really want to be used in a way that subversively, incrementally destroys YOU, in order for an enemy’s ego to be bolstered? Really? Do ya??? Because if you don’t, you need to wise up & start getting back to your roots, who you really are, what you really believe…you need to look inside yourself…and maybe you need to look Up. You need to meet Jesus, if you don’t already know Him, and you need to learn a little bit about America’s founding documents & her Founding Fathers, her early history and specifically, our Constitution. (Hillsdale College Online Courses)

Reach inside, reach back & reach up to find the good substance of life.

“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”  (Romans 12:2)

Thinker

Destiny & Glory may yet Await You, O America…

“…all the trees of the field are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.”  (Joel 1: 12)

We don’t often think about joy, do we…life is often not often joyful, it seems. Times are serious, worldwide. Make no mistake about that. I am one who has never wanted, or been able to accept that the time of the return of Christ is close. That it very likely will happen in my lifetime. I know about dire prophetic warnings, winds of Armageddon horror approaching – unlike many, I’m not so sure that a rapture will catch up believers in Jesus Christ before the nightmare comes upon us. I didn’t want to accept that this suffering might come upon me. It couldn’t be this late in history…could it?

I have continued to maintain as much hope as I could for delays, a reversal in the times. Until just recently. When I learned of Billy Graham’s daughter, Annie Graham-Lotz’s testimony of what she believes was a warning from God to her, of the end of human history, I began to consider the possible truth of what she said. I don’t jump on any Christian/evangelical’s bandwagon, ever…but she is Billy Graham’s daughter. Billy Graham! I put my life on pause & listened. I took her words to heart, and joined in on her MayDay! MayDay! prayer initiative. And I’ve started praying more, and waiting on His Spirit in prayer in a way that has produced some stunning & delightful leadings from Him. I have rejoiced in where He has taken me in prayer! There still can be upswings!

Jesus endured the cross for the joy set before Him. His joy is our strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)  We need to find & grab any glimmer of joy that we can. And build on it, in whatever way you might be led.

~~~

I need, like never before, to lay hold of hope & joy. My last two posts, and the research involved prior to writing them, had begun the birthing of a knowledge concerning America & all of history that at first sickened me. It took a few weeks for me to recover, to level off. Since then, my investigations have continued. I am onto something! and will be writing more about this in future posts. Many may already know of these things, but I am not aware of anyone in my sphere of life who does. (Granted, my sphere is small…) I have thought, Like Alice, I’m falling down the rabbit hole! But God has given me a sound mind in all of this, which is astonishing to me. No longer am I sickened. I remain steady. My faith in Jesus Christ, the Gospel and all that pertains to it, remains sure, bright & true. It is in no way diminished nor threatened. He is ever Lord of all and King of all the earth.

~~~

Mrs. Graham-Lotz’s purposes for the MayDay initiative are outlined here.  She lists five specific reasons, but I am highlighting only the last one: ” * To delay or soften God’s judgment that is coming on America and on our world. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing. Joel 2:13-14″  In her explanatory video, she made the point that a blessing of God can turn into…well, NOT a blessing…but here she suggests the possibility of the opposite. She calls upon the body of Christ to stand in the gap for this country, for the world. Those who do not believe, cannot stand. They simply do not know…we do, and can.

On the heels of this shedding of slight light into darkening corners came an explosion of light. Again, I do not jump on bandwagons…but a sudden and almost overwhelming prophetic word came to me, through a source only recently having arrived in my life.  It is long. I keep re-reading it. This prophecy, and similar ones following it, bear witness to similar words placed in my mind & heart on September 11, 2001, and since then – words that have remained there, held closely within my spirit. nurtured only by the Holy Spirit.

Here are some excerpts:

“I have been feeling a longing on the heart of God for His people to not give up on the United States of America.”

“I feel a longing in the heart of God for His people to see that even amongst the darkness and the way the United States has moved away from Him and His Word, He has heard the prayers of His people.

“There has been impregnation with a divine seed of Heaven into the USA to bring about a great birthing in this nation. A birthing of His glory…”

“I feel a warning from the Lord that many could “abort” the pregnancy and coming birthing through words of “doom” and “curses over the land of the USA,” committing the United States to a destiny of despair and hopelessness…”

“I then heard Isaiah 43:19:
“Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”

The Lord has not given up on the United States of America; she is impregnated with something new.”

~~~

“There is such a longing in my spirit to encourage the people of God to NOT give up now. Do not give up praying for the USA. Do NOT commit her to failure, but continue to see the GOLD in the nation, for there IS GOLD in the nation. I believe the Lord is wanting His people to focus on the LIFE that He wants to bring to the nation, and the NEW that He wants to birth in this nation.”

To any who read and can hear & receive these seeds of vision, hope & life for America, America – I beg you, align your thoughts, hopes & prayers with the rest of us who do. Share this word if you can, where it seems appropriate.

God bless America.
