The Push For World Oneness…The West in Prophecy pt 8

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. (Genesis 11:1-5)

The first book of the Bible, Genesis , records the first great apostasy of virtually all of the people of the world against the Most High God. He had commanded them to spread out and populate the earth, but under the leadership of men like NimRod (lit “Let us Rebel”), mankind had other ideas.

Rather than spreading out across the land, the inhabitants of the earth organized a collective effort, gathering around a three fold project,

  • They would build a city-  (Governmental unity)
  • They would build a Tower (Religious Unity)
  • they would make a name for themselves  ( redefinition of man himself)

The fact that all of mankind was in such complete unity in this project, caught God’s attention, and  resulted in a complete and shattering judgment upon all men, which we have never recovered from to this day.

The separation of language brought about the different nations,  and profoundly divided the human race. There could be no world unity, no humanistic projects, no one world Government or religion, all of that became impossible as a result of the Divine intervention.

God divided the nations for his own reasons,

When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.(Deuteronomy 32:8)

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;  Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:   (Acts 17:24-27)

In the modern world, there is a serious attempt to reverse the so called “Babel effect” and to bring about a world unity. Most of the impetus for this has arisen from Western political class, Particularly from European, American and British intellectuals.

Of course the last century bore sad witness to the full expression of the Communistic International enterprise, which claimed a hundred million deaths, enslaved untold millions, ruined the economies of more than half of the planet, and has proven a crippling, abject , bloody failure everywhere it is tried.

World War 2 in particular was centered around two factions of this heresy, as the National Socialist(Nazi) front engaged in an epic death struggle with the USSR,(Communist Russia) which killed tens of millions and enslaved Eastern Europe.

But out of the ashes of World Wars 1 and 2, the Western World has decided that for the sake of world peace, Nationalism has to go, and is involved in a multilevel attempt to repeat the Babel transgression, by dissolving national boundaries and seeking to create a one world Government, economy, and ultimately a united world religion.

First, after World War 1  came the failed League of Nations, something our President Woodrow Wilson was very intent upon, but America was still very Judeo Christian and balked at being a part of a World Government.  Without American support the League of Nations proved impotent to stop Hitler and prevent World War 2.

After World War two, the United Nations was created. Originally it featured 51 nations, but now has 193. For the first time ever, the various prophecies foretelling of a congress of all nations acting in concert against the interests of God, were capable of fulfillment;

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.  And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. (Joel 3:1-3)

When in all of history did all nations gather to cast lots(vote for or against) Israel? Only since 1948 Ad.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.(Zechariah 12:3)

It is through the United Nations, a western concept and construction, that all nations of the World gather  to come  against Israel ,Jerusalem and Judea.

Another startling manifestation of the Western Universalistic yearning is the European Union.

Originally the European Union, or club of Rome,   was sold as a common economic market,  but has taken on a life of itself, engulfing the formerly prosperous and relatively strong Western European nations, into an antidemocratic alliance, binding these Western nations with several Eastern European countries, and submitting the various National Governments and economies to faceless , unelected Buearocrats usually n Brussells and or Germany.

The latest manifestation of this control is the insistence by central European planners, upon the acceptance of millions of Muslim refugees from all over black Africa, Iraq, Syria and other war torn and poverty stricken areas of the world. This insane plan has wreaked havoc on formerly peaceful and relatively crime free places such as Sweden(now known as the Rape capitol of  the World), Germany, France and Belgium. Vast areas of these formerly European lands are now considered “no go” areas off limits to all but the Muslims who have entered Europe’s open borders to inhabit them.

I believe that the European Union may well collapse, from it’s present form, Brexit showed the world that the common people on the street do not want to be in the EU, and would vote themselves out of it if possible. The forced multiculturalism has proven to be a destabilizing disaster, so also Schengen plan, i.e. the removal of interior borders, (many of which are rapidly being re-erected).

Then there is the European Union inspired Mediterranean Neighborhood project, a unity treaty  encompassing all the nations around the Mediterranean. This catches the Bible Reader’s attention because it covers a virtual Roman Empire part 2.

The Multi Cultural experiment has failed but the Nihilistic , antiChristian Atheists who imposed it are still in power.

I believe that the EU may yet dissolve but only to be re-formulated into something  described in the book of Revelation as a Beast, which rises out of the Sea,

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.(Revelation 13:1-3)

Thus the final expression of Western hegemony will soon emerge, the Beast with ten Horns, will be the same as statue of the man, with the feet with ten toes, seen by Daniel, and destined to be smashed to powered with the arrival of the “Stone not made by Human hands. Ten Kings shall arise out of it, and from among them, a little Horn, a beast, a man of sin and perdition shall arise, till the Lord smites him with the breath of his mouth and by the brightness of His soon coming! Maranatha Jesus !

The Last Great Apostasy…The West in Prophecy pt 7

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?( @ Thessalonains 2:1-5)

Before the day of the LORD comes,  there must come first an apostasy, a falling away from revealed truth, which will lead to the revelation of “the man of sin”, who is the “son of Perdition”.

I have been taught this from the very beginning of my Christian life, and am surer of it than I have ever been. In every apostate movement which I have been exposed to in the forty years of my pilgrimage, I have oft asked my self, ‘is this it?’, ‘is this the great apostasy spoken of in second Thessalonians?’.

I have seen and sough to expose, many distortion of the Christian faith,  such as The Word of Faith Movement, the Manifested Sons of God and Latter Rain movement, the various false Prophets which have arisen, the mystical but misguided “River Revivals”, Toronto Blessing, and other forms of “experienced based Christianity’. I have seen revivals of ancient heresies such as Pelagianism, Montanism, and defections from the revelation of the Trinity, such as Oneness Pentecostalism.

A good share of my pastoral ministry has been spent teaching and warning in writing against apostasy of all stripes.

In fact I have come to the point of realizing that in the whole time of my pilgrimage, the entire church World has been utterly rife with Apostasy. WE haven’t even mentioned the sub Christian cults such as Jehovah;s Witnesses and Mormons. It almost seems that we are in a place where true Orthodox Christianity is just one of many, many optional versions of ‘Christian spirituality’.

Taking a step back further, I have come to realize in my studies of Church History, that from the beginning it has always been so, the Apostle Paul warned that shortly after his departure, there would be “grievous wolves’ arising from among his own disciples, ‘not sparing the flock of God’.

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.(Acts 20:28-30)

The one lesson I have learned from Church History is that in the face of such distortion and apostasy, it is truly a miracle that there still is a Christian church which is orthodox and true to the gospel. Jesus did say “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not stand against it…”.

In the light of that, and in view of the warning in Thessalonians, I have a question; how would we know that the final apostasy has come, since all of church history is a testimony of constant apostasy? ”  The day of the LORD shall not come, until a falling away first…”...Which falling away would that be? 

Perhaps we have made a wrong assumption. We have assumed that the ‘falling away’ would be an apostasy among Christians, that they would fall away from the faith into various cults and false movements, (as has been the case since the time of the Apostles).

What if Paul is referring to something a whole lot broader; not just an apostasy of confessing Christians from the revealed truth of the Gospel, but a worldwide apostasy of humanity from things God has revealed to all of mankind.

Such a defection has happened before in the days of the Tower of Babel, and it ended in a catastrophic judgment which separated mankind, to this very day.

My thoughts on this subject were aroused after reading Isaiah 24, and already having been pondering 2 Thessalonians 2.  Isaiah 24-27 is called the ‘mini apocalypse’, and it describes the events occurring in the day of the LORD.

Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.   And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.  The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.(Isaiah 24:1-6)

The Judgment is universal, the earth staggers , all classes of people are afflicted. The earth itself is seen as being morally sensitive, it mourns, languishes and fades away under the heavy curse put upon it.

The people of the earth are charged with specific crimes, “They have transgressed the laws”, “changed the ordinance” and “Broken the everlasting covenant”.

What are these laws and ordinances? What would the everlasting covenant consist of?

I do not believe this to be reference to the Law of Moses, nor to the New Covenant, for these are chargeable to all of the people of the earth, not just Jews and Christians.

What he is talking about here is a universal apostasy, a rebellion against something God has put into the hearts of all mankind, from Creation itself. This is Primal Law, ordinances for all of humanity to live by… the everlasting covenant.

It goes back to the earliest chapters of Genesis, from chapter 1 to chapter 11, the account of the Babel rebellion, the earliest “World Apostasy”.  In those early chapters, starting at chapter One, God establishes everything necessary for all of mankind to be able to live. I quote from my book, Creation,Fall and The Hope Of Redemption, 

“Genesis 1-11 contains a divine revelation of all that is basic to a true understanding of man; his world, his fall into sin and alienation from God, his present lost condition, and the possibility of his salvation.

It contains truths that are universal, in that they apply to all men, and not just to the church or to Israel. All men are created in the image of God, (though we have shattered and distorted that image). All men share in the sin of Adam, and have original sin. Marriage is for all people, male and female.

Genesis 1-11 is truth. In other words, it is reality. The hu- man race truly did all descend “from one blood” as Paul told us in Acts 17. There are truly God-given roles for male and female to live out, and marriage is an objective reality, not a

mere social construct. There really was a worldwide Flood, which altered the geography, lifespan, and the weather pat- terns of the earth.

A civilization which has been largely based upon the acceptance and recognition of these primal truths cannot help but flourish for it is based upon reality. The extent to which any human enterprise is based upon reality, i.e., “true truth” as Francis Schaeffer used to call it, is the extent to which it will prosper.

The Judeo-Christian West has flourished for centuries, expanding and developing into the greatest, most powerful, secure, prosperous beneficial civilization which have ever existed. The West’s liberal, democratic republics have afforded to the most people, the greatest freedoms ever known to any on earth.

But now the West is dying.
The second psalm is a prophecy, which explains it all so

well. Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us (Psalm 2).

The expression, “kings of the earth and the rulers”, should not be understood to refer only to our government officials. The phrase refers rather to all of the leaders in education, government, religion, academia, the intellectuals, news and media, the opinion shapers and molders, and entertainers, who have achieved among themselves a remarkable con- sensus.

Our ruling elites, the so called “kings of the earth and the rulers”, have for too long “taken counsel together against the Lord and His Christ”. Where have they taken this godLess counsel? In my view, they have been taken it for the past eighty years or so to the institutions of higher learning.

It is for many of us an all too familiar story. You scrimp and sacrifice to send a son or daughter to the university. They come home after the first semester saturated with “environmental awareness”. By the end of the first year they have adapted progressive notions about economics, taxes and “social justice”. Eventually they are holding to feminist positions and hate America. After about four years, if the brainwashing does its work, they are virulently anti-Israel,

The psalmist predicted that the ruling class elite, would launch a misguided liberation movement against the very foundations that undergird our blessed and once prosperous societies. They preach, “Let us break their bands asunder . . . let us cast aside their cords.”

Whose bands? The Lord and His Anointed (Christ)! Whose cords? Has the Lord and His Messiah put us in bond- age? Are their societal cords that have been cut and cast aside?

I believe that one of the evils of our day and the reason for our rapid societal decline has been this very thing. Our elites are in rebellion against reality! They are leading a “liberaation movement” against Judeo-Christian moral teaching, seeking to throw it all out!

They are repudiating, everything that Genesis 1-11 says about reality, point by point.

 

The  Creator……………………………………………………Worship the creation God Created everything…………. Impersonal time & chance; evolution

Man made in God’s image.……………………Man as highly evolved animal Man as steward of the earth ……………. Man as blight/disease on earth

Marriage; male and female ….. Sexual anarchy; decide for yourselves Two distinct gender roles ……………………….Gender as a mere construct

 

“Be fruitful and multiply” ……. ZPG; Children as an unwanted burden

Every seed bearing fruit…………………………..Genetically modified “seed”

Death penalty for murder………….No death penalty (except abortion)

Man to spread out & subdue the earth ……………………………….Earth to be protected from man’s destruction

Nations of the world to be separated …………………. The United Nations

You are allowed to eat meat ……………………………………………Vegetarianism

 

 

I could go on and on. It seems like man has repudiated everything that God ordained for man in Genesis 1-11.

Our atheistic leadership elites are trying to remake the world in their own image, which is a godless utopia. But this puts us all on a collision course with the God of the Bible, who has His own purpose for this world.”

The Depth of Western Apostasy…The West in Prophecy pt 6

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,( 2 Timothy 3:1-6)

Paul warned us, and has been warning us for centuries through the Epistles of the perils of the last days.

What makes the last days so dangerous?

According to Paul, the peril comes about, because of  what happens in the souls of people. “Men shall be Lovers of Self…”, and all that flows out of that position.

I believe that all of scripture has a universal application, unless otherwise noted, these particular warnings are descriptive of all men from all walks of life.

However I also believe that scriptures such as these are uniquely applicable to a specific group of people, ones who had formerly known a better way, (otherwise it would be unremarkable to say that they “Loved Self…” and all of the rest of this description.)

The people he is describing here are people who would have at one time known that excessive love of Self is a vice, not a virtue. The description seems to presuppose that at one time this people knew better, but turned away from their former knowledge.

Another clue is that in spite of this list of reprehensible vices and ominous characteristics, the people He is talking about still hold to a “form of godliness” though they deny it’s power. This people he warns of, come from people who once knew something of piety and devotion to God. They may still go to church, but they do not believe in the power of God to change a life as their forefathers once did.

 

To me this is an apt prophetic warning which is a description of much of the characteristics of people of the West. (I am sure this passage is broader in scope, but that is partly because the West has been so influential in the modern world, the rest of the World imitates our fads, modes of entertainment , love of Sports, and even our coarsened, “in your face” kind of culture.

It was only within the last 100 plus years  or so, that the pseudo science of Psychology began to develop in Europe and then eventually to spread over to America. Psychology claims to be the study of the soul, which traditionally in the west, was considered the province of religion.

Psychology’s earliest proponents were atheists and in some cases were avidly antiChristian.  However their claims to “scientific insight” into the soul were widely accepted by millions, who submitted to psychological counseling, or who enrolled in the new courses on Psychology and Psychiatry which were springing up at every college and University in the Western world.

The Psychological teaching on the Self, was in direct conflict with Christian teaching.

Christ taught that inordinate self love stood in the way of Loving God, and love of neighbor.Self, as an independent entity before God, was to be denied, chastened, not trusted, sought or exalted.

Psychology teaches the opposite; the great goal of life is to “discover ourselves”, “find ourselves”, develop “Self Esteem” , Put others ahead of self, and love others as much as you already love yourself. We are to seek God, and the will of God, not self.

But various schools of Psychology teach that all men have deep issues, maladies, even psychosis’ because of early trauma, and a subsequent lack of self Love and esteem.

Man has always been selfish, but western man and any others with any exposure to the gospels, have known that it is utterly wrong to put Self first or to seek “Self Esteem”. Self pampering or self preference was something discouraged and even seen as shameful, something to hide, downplay or even to eschew.

It has only been recently, in our lifetimes, due to the overwhelming acceptance of the heresy of Psychology, that open Self Love has been celebrated and encouraged. Humility was seen as a virtue, something to be cultivated. It is hard to calculate how toxic this has been to the West and even to the church in the West.

What happens when men are encouraged constantly, to indulge in Self Love,to openly pursue selfish aspirations and told to always remain true to self at any cost? Something like Paul’s description in 2 Timothy 3.

Even the church collapsed against the onslaught and so called “respectability” of Psychology,  referring counselees to certified Psychological professionals, and opening Psych departments in Church Universities.

Apostate ministers acted as though godless humanists such as Freud, Maslow, Adler, and Erickson, were going to be able to give us insights into human personality that even Jesus and the Apostles didn’t know.  This is how the Western church seriously denied Christ, in the face of “academic” respectability, just as they denied Him earlier in the days of Charles Darwin’s evolutionary heresy.

We see this in the “Church Growth Movement”, which on its own terms has been a wildly successful endeavor, building “Mega Churches” by virtually creating a “the customer is always right” mentality in Church, deliberately catering to the Self Love of Modern (carnal) churchgoers. Everything about this movement is calculated to appeal to the constituency, the churchgoer, who is treated as a religious consumer.

But what is a church?  Isn’t the primal directive of the LORD of the church, to “Take up your cross and deny Yourself”?

We have seen Western entrepreneurial and advertising genius (mis)applied to Christian worship, and though on worldly terms it is a smashing success, in terms of the Kingdom of God, it is a disaster!

We in the west have undergone a real revolution, something as radically antiChristian as any we have ever seen, it is the “Self Revolution”, men now Love self, they “seek themselves” , take “Selfies” and broadcast all of their thoughts no matter how trivial, on Social Media.

This “love of Self” has caused some men to become feminine, in their inordinate concern for their looks and clothing. It has emboldened the perverse and resentful as they throw off the shame which once inhibited them, and flaunt their shame in public.

Columbus Ohio hosted a “Gay Pride” event today. More than a hundred thousand people came to watch the “Parade”, a good many of them, Parents with children. What Perversions those children were exposed to, would have been unthinkable for anyone to have to see, a few short decades ago. Several area (apostate) churches participated to show their “unconditional Love”(another Psychologucal heresy which has ruined the Western moral status) for the degenerates.

This is what happens when men are encouraged to Love themselves, without any reference to God, self denial or neighbor.

The AntiChrist, in the final expression of man’s rebellion against God, is described in these terms,

“He will exalt Self above all that is called God or that is worshipped, showing himself that he is God…”( 2 Thess 2)

Please come quickly LORD Jesus!

The Kings of The Earth and Their Rulers…the West in Prophecy pt 4

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)

Psalm 2 is as apt a description as any I have seen in scripture, of what has happened to the Western World over the pas 100 years.

The Psalmist asks two very pertinent questions;

“Why are the nations of the world in an uproar?”

“Why do the peoples imagine a vain thing?” or “Why are the peoples of the earth in the grip of a vain imagination?”

The answer has to do with the Kings of the Earth and their rulers, a much repeated term in scripture describing a very specific set of people.”The Kings of the Earth and their rulers” is not a phrase limited to political and governmental leaders. It includes all of the so called “ruling ,cultural elite”, all of the movers and shakers in the fields that truly shape our society, Education, the arts ,entertainment, news,media,Religion, Law, Medicine, and yes Politics and government.

Amazingly in our current world, high tech,  modern and democratic as it is, I suppose there has never been a greater gap between the common people, and the “Ruling elite”, the so called experts. They do not think like the average person, they seem to have come to a consensus among themselves, which is anti God, anti Judeo-Christian and anti Western civilization.

They have literally “taken counsel against the LORD and against his Messiah…”. They do not oppose religion in general, it is the LORD of the Bible, the one whose associate is the Messiah, that is the religion they have taken counsel together against. Where has this counsel been given? I would say it has been dispensed for more than a hundred years at the very highest levels of higher education. With very few exceptions, ost of our leaders have a consensus, a worldview which is very left of center.

Thus the Psalmist saw that the “Kings of the Earth and their Rulers” had brought all of the nations of the world into an uproar, an that they had propagated a “Vain Imagination” which held the so called “masses” of people in the grip of a vain imagination!

According to the Divine Psalmist, the Kings of the Earth and the rulers have embarked on an all-encompassing liberation movement, seeking to use their influence to break society free from the “bands” and “cords” of the religion of the LORD and his Christ!

This revolt has been a long time in the making, and no doubt it is much more than a merely human conspiracy, for Satan himself works on the level of the “Kings of the earth and the rulers”, through “Principalities,powers, and rulers of the darkness of this Age”.

The French revolution was the first large-scale atheistic attempt at stripping away the Christian influence from a formerly ‘Christian country’. Among other horrors, the king was beheaded, a prostitute was nominated “the goddess of reason” in the Notre Dame cathedral, the working week was artificially reconstructed into a ten day cycle (with only one day of rest), and as much as possible the shackles of Christianity were removed from the French.

The slogan of the revolution, “Liberty Equality and Brotherhood” soon drowned in rivers of blood that ran down the French streets as the “liberation movement” descended into a chaotic, blood thirsty power struggle that ended in a godless Dictatorship, bent on world conquest.

Behold, in the howling guillotine spectacles, man liberated from his God. The nightmare scenes of crowds roaring their approval as the rich and noble “get their due”, the humiliation of the nobility, and the replacement of the old ruling elite by an even crueller and more ruthless ‘revolutionary” elite would be played out over and again , in countless locations in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Revolutionaries were going to smash the old world and bring in a new, more humane , scientific and enlightened world, after equalizing all outcomes, and banishing “superstitious religion ” to the fringes of society, hopefully to fade away into obscurity. This was revolution by atheism and even satanism.

There have been so many manifest failures of this experiment, in Russia, China, Eastern Europe, South America, that it is hard to imagine why anyone could even believe in it anymore. But it is a faith, not just politics, it is a deeply rooted dogma, and the faith is not easily shaken , even in the face of apparent failure.

It is also hard to calculate the human toll in death, misery, poverty and oppression these atheistic revolutions inevitably bring about. As Stalin once said, “One death is a tragedy, but a million deaths are only a statistic”. Lenin also is credited as saying, when queried about the political murders, the assassinations, and brutal suppression involved in ‘revolution’, “You have to break some eggs to make an omelete.”

The tenets of this religion is that Man can get rid of the old Judeo Christian influence and construct a better society without God. Also that we would actually be better off without christianity or the Bible, and even that perhaps the time for tolerance of the old religion is over.

Envy is exalted in this religion, into a virtue. It isn’t fair that people succeed, that they enjoy all of the fruits of their labor, that they pass on an inheritance to their own children. This religion would deify the State, all property really belongs to the Government.

Amazingly, after the manifest failure of this religion to create or sustain a civil, productive society, it is being implemented in the United States, formerly the most beneficial and productive society in the world.

The Kings of the earth are clever in the way they attempt to dismantle the western societies to bring them to the place where they can “cast off the cords” of our Judeo Christian heritage.

The assault on our culture required a complete revision of our history, in the education of our young people. Every fault and flaw had to be exaggerated, emphasised and distorted, while at the same time the record of any person or event that is a noble part of our own history has had to discredited or ignored.

What is American history according to modern high school textbooks? The answer according to our multicultural educators; slavery, sexism, oppression of blacks and Indians, treaty breaking, exploitation of minorities, and racism. What happened in World War 2? We interned the Japanese Americans, and used the atomic bomb. That is about it!

The effect of this has been to demoralize our own young people, into thinking that this nation, the most benevolent, Protestant, evangelical, democratic, self-governing in human history, is the cause of virtually all of the world’s ills.

Another way the Kings of the earth try to “cast off the cords” is through the use of un-assimilable immigration. Millions of third world immigrants , animists, Hindus and most effectively Moslems have been pouring into the christian western nations ,altering food, customs, holidays and institutions. Almost universally, this is done against the will of the people who pay the taxes.

When the taxpaying people want to make their own leaders responsible for the anti-christian direction they are taking their nations they are dismissed as ignorant, xenophobic racists. Then those leaders just open up the gates and bring in even more immigrants from third world nations, and voila, the politicians have a new constituency and no longer need listen to the tax payers.

The Muslim immigrants are particularly useful in canceling out the remaining traces of the once prevailing public expression of Christian influence in the west, because they are so ultra sensitive, and violently demand that their sensitivity be appeased. Crosses are taken down, offensive symbols , public scriptures, national holidays and a host of other trappings of the old religion are altered, diminished, if not outright canceled in the name of not offending our ‘guests’.

It remains to be seen whether or not the “Kings of the earth” will be able, after successfully destroying the public, christian nature of our societies, to get the Muslim Genie back into the bottle again, and to put the cork back in again.

Our Leaders are currently feverishly working to mix Iron with clay, and to construct the vain imagination of multiculturalism, as a reality.

The Stages of The final Empire…the West in Prophecy pt 4

Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.  This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,  His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. ( Daniel 2:31-34)

The Pagan king of Babylon had a dream, granted by the Spirit of the true and Living God, which showed him the future succession of Gentile Powers which would have varying degrees of custody over the chosen people,Israel, until the time of the restoration of Israel at the coming of the Messiah.

Babylon would be the golden age of Gentile power, a short 70 plus year span of time. Medo/Persia would be the second phase of Gentile dominance over the Holy People. The massive Persian Empire (Silver age)would be replaced by the lightning fast Grecian Empire under Alexander the Great. That would be the Brass age of Gentile Dominance.

Eventually the Grecian Empire crumbled and was replaced by the final Iron Empire, the longest lasting one, and one which occurs in distinct phases, the Roman Empire and all that flowed out of it.

The Holy People languished under the rule of Despots, benevolent Persian rulers, the terrible times oppressors such as  in the days of of Antiochus Epiphanes. There would be rebellions , which never totally threw off the yoke of Gentile domination, there would be Pagan appointed Priests and Governors, Rule by Caesars, and Edomite appointees over the Jews such as the Herods.

Eventually , under the Romans, The Temple of God was destroyed in 70 Ad, vast numbers of Jews were slaughtered and the great international diaspora of Jews occurred, in fulfillment of the warning of Moses,

“If you do not keep and observe all the words of this Law…You will be torn from the land which you are entering. God will scatter you among all the peoples,
from one end of the earth to the other.” ( Dt.28:58-64)

This was performed by the Romans, as was the crucifixion of the Messiah. The Jews were scattered across the World, and the Romans held custody of the land God gave to Abraham Isaac and Jacob.

God showed Daniel that the last Empire would be divided, “two Legs” and so Rome was, between the Eastern Empire (Constantinople, i.e. Byzantium) and the Western Roman Empire in Rome.  Western Rome fell to barbarians but the mantle was passed from the Caesars to the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. The former western Roman Empire was succeeded by the Catholic church which heartily involved itself in pograms and persecutions of the Jews from time to time.

The capitol of the Eastern Empire, Constantinople, did not fall for another 1000 years, but its hold over the Levant was wrested bit by bit from the time of the emergence of Islam. The Holy land went from one heir of the Roman Empire(Byzantine) to another, (the Islamic conquest of the Middle East).

As the centuries passed, the legs of the east and western Roman Empire, developed,, side by side, through the Byzantine, Roman, Papal and Islamic centuries, the scattered Jews and the Holy Land remained under custody of Gentile powers as Daniel swain his visions.

Eventually in the years 1914-1919, the Western World entered into its greatest calamity, World War 1. So called “Christendom ” fell in upon itself in wanton slaughter, dragging  colonies and allies into the maelstrom of killing, which took place on an industrial scale. Liberal Theology had long been hollowing out the faith of many in Europe,England and the Western New World, but World War 1 became a watershed for Europe in the sense that much of the continent lost its faith because of it.

One consequence of World War 1 was the transfer of the Holy Land from the Ottoman,(Muslim) Empire, into the custody of Britain. Britain possessed the Palestinian Mandate for almost thirty years, ruling over the Land of Israel, and over the Jews who had begun to trickle back into the Land. This continued through the second , devastating extension of the World War, the defeat of theNazis and their Muslim Allies, and the opening up of the death camps in Europe, and the release of Europe’s surviving Jewry.

Eventually the State of Israel was born, in 1948, but Israel has still remained very much under Western and Gentile rule and influence,  relying on European and then American aid and friendship. The Birth of the State of Israel in fulfillment of the Hebrew prophets, indicated that the end of the time of the Gentiles was nearing. All of the Prophecies of the second coming presuppose that Israel is a nation again.

One of the final stages of Daniel’s vision, are the stage of the feet, which are composed of “iron mixed with clay”, two elements which are unbindable, therefore weakening. The Iron of the strong, wealthy and successful models of the Western Civilization rooted in Greco Roman and Judeo Christian soil , is destined to be fatally weakened, (by an infusion of incompatible peoples,The Immigrant crisis?) such as we see today with the infusion of Muslim hordes.

There will yet be a “ten Toes” phase, composed of “ten Horns”(Powers), and “Ten Kings” out of which will arise a Prince, let ‘the Prince to come’, of the same people who last destroyed the Temple in 70 Ad, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet,

 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.(Daniel 9:26-27)

It will be in the time of the ten Kings, and at the time of the emergence of ‘the little Horn’ (AntiChrist) that the Stone (King Messiah) shall come from heaven and shatter the statue, and establish the Kingdom of God on earth. Maranatha!

The Times of The Gentiles…The West in Prophecy pt 4

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.(Luke 21:24)

According to Jesus and the Prophets which preceded Him, there would be a long period of time, in which the Jewish people would languish under Gentile domination, as a consequence of the repetitive sins of idolatry and God defection.

From the time the pagan King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar came to Jerusalem in 600 BC, Jews have been ruled by Gentiles. Exactly as Joel had predicted, like a plague of locusts, Nebuchadnezzar utterly spoiled the Kingdom of Judah in four successive waves.

First He stripped Judah of her King, and royal family, (the Son of David), then took away all of her artisans, experts and promising youth, and in another wave destroyed her temple,Priests and walls, and finally deported most of her population to Babylon, until this very day, either directly or indirectly various Gentile Nations have ruled over the chosen people.

This same Nebuchadnezzar had a remarkable dream, which so un-nerved Him, he demanded that his “wise men” and occult advisors, tell him both the dream and the interpretation of it. None of them were able to do so, even upon threat of loss of life, until word of it came to Daniel, and his three fellow Hebrew captives, in Nebuchadnezzar’s court, Shadrac,  Meshech and Abed-Nego.

Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;  But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;  As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass. But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.(Daniel 2:26-30)

After witnessing to the Pagan King of the reality of the God of Israel as the only possible source of theDream and it’s interpretation, Daniel began to tell the King the secrets of his heart.

“King, You were thinking about what was going to be happening in the future…all of the way to the very latter days”.

 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.  This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. (Daniel 2:31-33)

The Pagan King sat amazed as Daniel described in detail the King’s very vivid dream, one which he had shared with no one else.

 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.  This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.(Daniel 2:34-36)

This amazing dream, granted by the God of Israel and of the whole earth, to a pagan King which He had raised up, partly to punish his own people for their transgressions, was about the entire future of the pagan, humanistic, idolatrous enterprise. This is the future of the kingdoms of man in rebellion against God, all the way to the end and final judgments.

Of particular interest in this vision is the focus on those Gentile powers which would be granted temporary  custody of Israel, (Judah and Jerusalem).

Babylon would come first, and was at that time in ruling over God’s people.. The material was gold, for the Babylonian empire was the highest expression of Heathendom as world rulership and empire.

But Babylon would soon be supplanted by Persia, the Medes ad Persians would be a kingdom of silver, with one arm stronger than another, they too would rule over Israel.

Eventually they would be overthrown by Greece, an inferior metal represented her, Brass, but she would be swifter and stronger for a season, than the Persians had been in their late stages.

The most details are given of the final pagan ruler empire over the chosen people, the iron like Roman Empire. It is the longest and comes in stages, but reaches all the way to the very end of time, the time when a Stone from heaven comes and smites the statue, not into shards, but into powder, until the wind blows it all away.

This is the end of the Pagan enterprise, and of man’s organized rebellion against the Most high, so well typified by the image of man himself as a god or object of worship!  Would there be a coming golden age? The golden age was at present and soon to pass away, yielding to successively less valuable materials, the last being a weakened “iron mixed with clay”.

The end would come about not by yet another humanistic, man worshipping empire, but by a stone, not made by human hands, originating in heaven and destined to smite and destroy the statue, and then to fill the earth as the Kingdom of Heaven, which would never pass away.

This amazing prophecy has proven to be a completely accurate account up to this day of the succession of Gentile Empires given custody over Israel, all of the way through time to this present day.

Babylon, an eastern power,  would commence the times of the Gentiles,  but she would soon give way to another Eastern power of two components, (arms) , Medo Persia, (the Medes are todays Kurds and the Persians, todays Iran).

But then He saw a Western Power take the pre-eminence, and seized the levant and the Holy people who had been sent home by the Persians. The Greeks overthrew the Persian Empire in a series of wars, under the leadership of Alexander the Great. But eventually Greek power waned, the Kingdom was divided into four parts,( As Daniel predicted inch 7), and Roman assumed the mastery of the Near east and classical World.

The King Messiah would come into this world as a subject of Augustus Caesar, and be crucified under Pontious Pilate, neither realizing that this Man was destined to be the very Stone which would utterly destroy the Humanistic Pagan Gentile enterprise at his second coming!

Thus we see that Europe, and the remnant and outgrowth of the old Roman Empire have a role to play in the events of the Last days. We are in the very last phases of it, as I will soon hopefully show you.

Seven Worse Spirits…the West in Prophecy pt 3

 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.(Matthew 12:34-36)

There was a time when the continent of Europe was as dark, ignorant and backwards as any corner of ancestor worshipping Africa, or anywhere else in the idolatrous third world. Warring tribes slaughtered each other, indulged in Human sacrifice, worshipped and deified aspects of nature, and feared Shamans and Druidic Priests, creating an incredibly cruel world of darkness, fear and superstition.

 

I wonder if we Westerners truly appreciate that point in Acts, when the Apostles assayed to go east into Asia, but were impeded by the Holy Spirit and sent instead into Europe. This was the beginning of what we know of as the Western Civilization, the Judeo Christian world. It took centuries, but the Gospel prevailed over paganism, light shone in the darkness, the demons were driven out, and a Christianized civilization developed, which would eventually elevate the whole world.

But in the past two or three centuries, we have been flowing away from the old Christian consensus.

The seeds of man centered humanism were planted in the Renaissance, and countered somewhat in the Reformation,  but were to fully flower in the Age of Enlightenment, in which Human Reason was exalted by some , over the Revelation of God in Christ and in the scripture which the West was once confident in.

The French Revolution was a terrible portent of things to come, a violent overthrow of the remnants of any Judeo Christian order in a nation, all in the name of Liberty,Equality and Brotherhood. The apostle Peter warned us of those who “promise Liberty, but they themselves are slaves of corruption”.

The “revolution ” which rocked France was an atheistic affair, the churches were profaned, a harlot was crowned “goddess of reason” in the Notre Dame Cathedral, the wrk week was extended from 7 days to 10 (to rid themselves of the Biblical cycle of seven days), and the calendar of years was reset to the year one!

But there would be no liberty, Equality or Brotherhood without Christ, certainly atheism couldn’t achieve it, so the “revolution” ended up as a bloodbath, and the only way order could be restored to the unruly streets of France was by the accession of Napolean, a strong, ruthless leader. He trained cannons on a mob of Protestors and opened fire.

Jesus warned that seven worse evil Spirits would flood into the house which is swept clean but empty, for there can be no real Spiritual vacuum for long. People who no longer believe in the God of the Bible, or fear Him, will instead have to fear various “isms” , idols in the form of ideologies.

Consider the centuries since the French Revolution, and which have shaped the West as we know it today to varying degrees. Jacobinism, Darwinianism, Atheism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Existentialism, are some of the powerful, and at times cutting edged philosophies which have gripped Europe, her former colonies across the World, and in some cases, such as in the case of Communism, have spread to much of the rest of the world, like a communicable disease.

These Philosophies are the vessels by which the Evil Spirits which inhabit the west now express themselves and insinuate themselves throughout our culture.

The nearest thing for people who once feared a God,  the “only True God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent”, would be to have the State as God, and various strong men such as Napolean and Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, teal, as Messianic personalities to worship. Thus Atheism has hollowed out much of Europe and the West, and weakened it to the point of inability to resist such maladies as socialism and Fascism.

The West which once believed in Heaven and Hell and final judgment, is more practical these days, she now believes in various earthly Utopias, made possible by science or economic planning, no more “pie in the sky” but heaven on earth, made to order by all powerful Government, and brought to pass by various pseudo Messiahs.

The Kings of the Earth and their rulers, have truly taken counsel together against the LORD and his Messiah,  and have embarked on an ongoing , two hundred years plus, liberation movement.

Now modern Man is going to liberate himself, through politics, science ad economics. We have all seen various valid Civil Rights campaigns and have rejoiced in them out of sense of fairness and human decency. But the trajectory goes far beyond simple Civil Rights, thus we have Feminism,(which has “liberated” much of the west from the family, marriage, Biblical sexual roles, child bearing and femininity itself!)!

The West is currently like the man among the tombs, who was so liberated, that no one could bind him with chains! He was free of people, accountability, conventions and mores, He was even free of clothes! But where do we find him in Mark 5 ? Depressed, cutting himself and crying, and among the tombs of death.

The Christian ideal of family has been attacked, hollowed out and vastly denigrated, perverted and destroyed. Perhaps the last and greatest insult to it is the institutionalization of “Gay Marriage”.

The gender confusion in our modern world is an indicator as to how sick and exhausted our depraved society has become. Why did we forsake our God and worship at other altars? The West is a house possessed of seven worse Spirits!

The sanctity of human life itself has been under assault, to the point where in America alone more than fifty million precious unborn children have been murdered. Truly the West is possessed now, by Moloch, and other evil Spirits.

Now the godless portions of the West are being flooded by hordes of Muslims. Islam is like the last opportunistic disease, it had tried to enter the West on several historical occasions, but was thrust out, back when Europe had civilizational confidence and a religion.  Now the Nihilistic leaders of Europe, America, South America, Australia, andBritain, see no reason why restive, violent Muslims shouldn’t be admitted into formerly peaceful society.

It is almost as though our leaders have a death wish for the West, and seek to strip it of anything distinctly Judeo Christian. That has always been my interpretation of Psalm 2 anyway,

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)
