The Sifting of America…(American trial)

Author’s note- I have been quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14 lately in regards to our national problems. I realize that technically the verse applies to Israel, it is a promise to them made by God at the dedication of the temple. But in response to those who have correctly pointed that out to me, I realize it, but do not believe that 2 Chronicles 7:14 has nothing to say to us. The principle of national blessings being of God and depending upon his bounty- therefore the need for prayer in tomes of national trouble, is sound.

 

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:(Deuteronomy 30:19)

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.(Luke 22:31-32)

Historic and prophetic events are rapidly coming crashing down around us, in breathtaking rates of speed and severity.

In the past week alone, We beheld with horror the open corruption of our cherished concept of the rule by law demonstrated by the nation’s very highest office holders (President, former President, former first lady and potential President, the FBI director and the Attorney General).

This charade was followed by the emotionally  incendiary release of  two videos of police shootings,  giving the impression of cold blooded murder, and then finally the brazenly open attack on our formerly civil society in the massacre of five Dallas policemen, as they defended the rights of protestors (against them!) to have freedom of speech .

 

What is happening to America is a divisive sifting. On the night Jesus was betrayed, He warned one of his disciples, that “Satan desires to have you that he may sift you as wheat…”

People in America are being forced into competing sides,  neutrality is increasingly becoming an impossibility as these issues are forced upon us by powers greater than the average person.

Therefore I think it helpful to be clear on what the “sides” in this struggle for America really are;

We in America are currently are being torn between the forces of :

  • Judeo/Christianity and Leftism– Is the American experiment a failure? Do we throw in the towel and admit that those who clamor and demand radical change at every level are right?

 

  • Individualism vs collectivism –  Is man made in the Image of God ? Is he a responsible moral agent, endowed by his Creator with inalienable rights? Are we going to be a meritocracy?Or will there be favored and/or unfavored groups,(gays, women, blacks, latinos)
  • Is there a “collective guilt”(white guilt) which needs to be redressed or will every individual stand before law on his or her own merit.

It is easier for amoral power-hungry politicians to control all of us, when they can  pit us against each other when these “identity politics ” are played.

  • Collectivism is a kind of tribalism- The difference between a Republic and a tribal system comes down to this. In a republic all are theoretically treated the same under the law. Western Republics may have come short of that at times, but that it the ideal which has been striven for. But in tribalism it is “All for the tribe” nothing for anyone outside of the tribe.

We were all disgusted by the spectacle of the Trump rallies in Sacramento and San Diego in which angry crowds were allowed to hit, curse and pelt Trump supporters on their way out of the rally, as Policemen  looked on passively.

It was frightening, watching crowds of black and Mexican men chasing a 16 year old boy until they tackled him and beat him in the street, or as Mexicans waving Mexican flags ruthlessly jeered and pelted a frightened young white girl, spitting on her and pelting her with eggs.

I found out that in San Diego and in Los Angeles and possibly Sacramento, the Mayor and Police Chiefs were “La Raza” sympathizers.  The group “La Raza” ( “The Race”) has become a political tribe. Their motto is “All for the race…nothing for outsiders” and we saw that in frightening real time in those rallies.

Tribes don’t concern themselves with right and wrong, whatever a tribesman does is right, and to be defended, outsiders are wrong by definition.

Our politicians are working feverishly to import millions of members of the ultimate tribe, Muslims from the Middle East. When these “tribesmen” set themselves up in a typical,(former civil) American city, they act tribal. Twin Falls Idaho was treated to that earlier this month as a fourteen year old and two younger Muslim boys were caught raping and humiliating a five year old special needs child in an apartment complex,at taxpayer expense.

When the boy’s father was called in, he smiled and high fives his son, (who had raped the little girl. Tribalistic morality is different then our morality. All for the tribe, nothing for the rest!

  • Emotion vs Reason- The videos of the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are heartbreaking, visceral, disturbing and incendiary. America knows these men by name now, just as she knows the name of Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown.         (Do you know the names of any of the Dallas Policemen, or the names of any of the fifty people shot in Chicago over Memorial day weekend? I doubt it).                             But these names are well known because there is a true concern yet in America that no one be subjected to  racist lynchings as they had been in the past. There is nothing more repugnant to American sensibilities than the old Jim Crow system of the South, long since dismantled and disavowed.                                                                                        But demagogues are exploiting us, whipping up members of the African American community and the millions of (rightly) sympathetic Americans of all hues, into trying and condemning the police on the basis of san emotional reaction to the videos.                                                                                                                                                     Even the President has weighed in on the side of knee jerk reaction against the police, without an investigation, trial, judge , jury or any of the other moral furnishings of our once highly civil and successful society.
  •  We do punish rogue policemen here, when proven guilty and given the same courtesy we give to  all citizens, the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

Do you see how you are being played America?  These demagogues, including our President, have an agenda.

  • Ultimately America is being torn between the forces of Civilization and Savagery- What happened in Dallas is what happens in third world corrupt banana republics, it is utter savagery. But it was preceded by Black Lives Matter activists marching and chanting in streets, restaurants and even taking over political rallies, seizing the microphones out of the hands of valid political candidates to express their “concerns” using the vilest and most obscene language, and threatening an often dealing in violence.
  • We have been sinking into savagery for sometime, as the new elite, force Christianity out of the public sector. Abortion is savagery. Remember the filming of abortion proponents eating salads and drinking wine and casually discussing the benefits of preserving (baby) body parts for sale? What was the President’s response? “God bless you Planned Parenthood” you will always be around as long as I am here!
  • The “Gay rights” rallies which people actually take their children to, are exhibitions of savagery and public perversion. Muslims also menacingly are allowed to march through the streets of American cities waving the flag of ISIS and proclaiming the superiority of the false “god” who orchestrated the twenty thousand terror attacks since 9-11,2001.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at the savagery coming. I weep though…

I think the case needs to be made if possible, in a sane and civil way, for the conservation of the Judeo Christian values which once held this nation together, I don’t know if it can though. Certainly not on University campuses, where the leftist demagogues have all but replicated the gulags of the Soviet Union.

I was struck recently by the fact that our National anthem is inconclusive, it ends in an open question…“Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave…?

We had better be praying saints…

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chrionicles 7:14)

The Open Wound…(culture of death)

Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.( Jeremiah 14:17)

America is hurting.

She has been torn apart by those who hate her. They have exploited her wounds and refused to allow them to heal, in spite of many valiant efforts by people of good will to bring the healing.

One of the wounds that has been exploited is the “racial wound”.

Indeed, like other nations, America has sinned. There was a time when Americans allowed chattel slavery, mostly the dehumanizing slavery of African Americans, in spite of her founding proposition that “All men are created equal…”.

For this hypocrisy, which pre-dated her very founding, but which carried over into her early history, the United States of America was subjected to bitter division in her early years, eventually leading to a bitter Civil War, costing the lives of more than 600,000 Americans and  immeasurable loss of property. Not one family in America remained untouched by loss, death and heartbreak as a result of the Civil War, which accomplished the end of the ugly institution of chattel slavery.

Obviously it would take time to change attitudes, but America has made an extremely good faith effort to change attitudes towards racial redress.  Shelby Steele is the African American scholar and author who  coined the phrase, “White Guilt” , and has acknowledged that the transformation in attitudes about race within “white America” is simply unprecedented;

“One of the most remarkable things in all of human history is the degree of moral evolutions, of moral evolution, that white Americans have made from the mid-60s to this day. No group of people in history have morally evolved away from a social evil that quickly and to that degree in this sort of short span of time. And very often, in our calculations in thinking about race, we don’t give whites credit for that.

We keep wanting to sort of keep them on the hook as racist. But the fact is that whites see racism as a disgrace and something that they would do almost anything not to be identified with.”

How far did we come? Blacks comprise 14.4 percent of the population here , yet we have elected a black President, very largely in part because we have been trying to gel the wound, and shake the constantly repeated charge that America is a racist nation.

But there are those who wouldn’t want the wound to heal because it is too profitable to them.The Prophet lamented that the “physicians” have failed to heal the wounds of his people, and this is true of us also-

For thus saith the Lord, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.  There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.(Jeremiah 30:12-13)

Our hurting nation has consulted so many “physicians” which we have hoped would heal us of our wound. In good faith we listened to the advice of these “doctors”, willing to take whatever medicine recommended. “Do we need Affirmative action hiring? You got it doc! More “equality” in housing employment, schools and even entertainment and Sports? Right away doctor”.

Do we need “Black studies” in higher education? Badly needed Civil Rights Legislation? Gladly doc we will take it. A national holiday in honor of MLK? No problem, we will take the medicine. But like the woman in the Bible who “spent all she had on Physicians, but was nothing better, and only grew worse”, America cannot close this wound and stop the bleeding.

There are too many “Civil Rights” figures who have only exploited us, such as the “Reverends Sharpton and Jesse Jackson”. They have profited immensely by the continuance of the wound, Jackson has merchandised his closeness to the late Martin Luther King, but only to “shake down” major corporations, threatening demonstrations in the name of Civil Rights.

Sharpton came to fame as a “Reverend” who foisted a racial hoax, the Tawana Brawley lie, which accused  whites of the rape and kidnapping of a young African American girl, although it all manifestly turned out to be a lie! His next burst of fame was in leading a demonstration outside of a Jewish owned store, Freddies Fashion Mart in a black neighborhood, accusing the owner of being a “white interloper” an accusation which eventually led to a riot, a fire and the death of innocent people.

In spite of such ‘physicians’, America has actually slowly progressed, in racial relations. But just when it looks like healing could happen, the Academy, i.e. higher education, has constructed new theories to keep the wound oozing and pulsing.

“Intellectuals” have constructed a new scheme to keep us apart, (150 years after slavery), “White Privilege”. WP is the theory, that even if you are not overtly racist, as a white person you are “living off” the benefit of a “racist system”, therefore you are guilty of racism, just by being white.

In this system, nothing but self flagellation and groveling can in any way tone for the “fiction which is whiteness” as one hypocritical actor recently announced. We are always beholden to minorities, in spite of the Civil War, the War on Poverty, the Civil Rights movement, and the trillions of dollars in transfer payments so called “White America” has voted for in a misguided attempt to heal the wound.

Perhaps the cruelest attempt at healing this breach is the election of Barak Obama, a man who allowed himself to be perceived as a “Healer” and a “Uniter” but who has perhaps set race relations back about 50 or 60 years. People were giddy about the “post racial” American era that the election of Obama was ushering in, and Obama knew it and allowed them to think so.

But when Obama spoke at the historic black Howard University, he felt the freedom to disavow that notion,

No, my election did not create a post-racial society. I don’t know who was propagating that notion. That was not mine.

We begin to get the idea that these doctors have no intention of healing America.

Nice to know that, eight years into his administration, right?

In a nation of 300 million people there are bound to be problems, mistakes and even crimes in Policing. But never before has there been such an ability to make videos of them and to spread those videos endlessly and virally. One would think Police are just going out to hunt down young black men, if they went by social Media and even the irresponsible public media. Without the benefit of any context, statistics or mitigating or aggravating facts, gruesome videos are disseminated, riots are provoked and now a war on police has been initiated.

I don’t deny that crimes have occurred or mistakes made. What is amazing is how few mistakes have been made considering the countless tense interactions with police and a very agitated and stoked population. From 2014, the latest year data are available, 131 blacks and 261 whites were killed by cops. From 1999 to 2013, the totals were 1,724 black and 3,160 white. any death is a tragedy but considering the tinder box which the left has created it is a miracle there haven’t been more.

We who know Christ know the only real medicine, there is a balm in Gilead, but in order too be healed, America would have to quit listening to the false physicians and quit taking the leftist snake oil medicine, and most importantly , quit considering people as part of collective political groups, “Blacks”,” Whites “or “Latinos” and realize that we are all just people made in the Image of God, in need of the forgiveness of sins, which is “once and for all” purchased for us on the cross.

You have to hear this…insightful speech

I want to pass on to my friends this very insightful perspective on why it is actually a good thing that Islamic terror is ramping up in the civilized West. The gist of it is that the illusion pour elite leaders is trying to impose on us, that Islam is actually a peaceful religion and has nothing to do with Islam, is going to collapse under the weight of the constant aggressive and increasingly brutal terror attacks inflicted by ISIS.Reality trumps fantasy every time. The Speaker is Daniel Greenfield, aka Sultan Knish and I highly recommend his many blogs and articles on frontpagemag.com  enjoy-

The Gelding of America… A Fourth of July Woe

Mine eyes do fail with tears, my bowels are troubled, my liver is poured upon the earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people; because the children and the sucklings swoon in the streets of the city.  They say to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? when they swooned as the wounded in the streets of the city, when their soul was poured out into their mothers’ bosom.(Lamentations 2:11-12)

 

The United States of America has long considered herself “the land of the free and the home of the brave”, for she has an incredibly honorable martial history, and has been favored of God through her many confrontations with tyrants from the beginning of her history.

As one of our beautiful anthems goes;

Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life

America, America
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine(America the Beautiful, Katherine Bates)

Since a child, I was nourished on tales of Valley Forge, George Washington, The Alamo, Davy Crocket and Sam Houston, Robert E Lee, General Grant, John Pershing and George S Patton and the D-Day invasion and defeat of Nazi Germany. We Americans have a heritage of valiant and self sacrificial warriors in our history. (I am an unashamed nationalist, but I grieve the state of my country).

Our military was a force for good also, we didn’t rape our way through Germany,  or crush our enemies in the dirt after we defeated them, in fact we built up Japan and Germany , making our former bitter foes into world class economies and allies.

I am not under the illusion that we have been flawless, for no nation can field armies and involve them in wars without atrocities, human nature being what it is.

But starting with Clinton, Bush and now well into the Obama years, we are castrating this former force for good, by subjecting our once fine and well trained military to bizarre social experimentation.

Clinton, (the sexual degenerate Caligula  President), worked feverishly to “feminize” the military, bringing women into men’s roles and removing barriers to Homosexual participation in all of the units and divisions, regardless of the damage to unit cohesion.

Today Obama announced that “transgender”persons will be allowed to openly serve in the military! This is madness!!! Do they out realize we face an existential crisis? Is this not an impeachable offense? Where are the adults, the Patriots in Washington DC to put an end to this lunacy?

We were also informed that the Marines  have removed the word “Man” from 19 job positions to avoid offending anyone. The Roman Emperors in their deepest debauchery didn’t castrate their own forces!

Furthermore the announcement was made that young women would be required to register for the draft.

Lately I have been wondering if there is anyone in Washington DC that is even remotely serious about their constitutional charge to protect this enemy from all enemies, bot foreign and  domestic. As an American Christian I am appalled at the utter debasement of the US military by Obama, the commander in chief.

I realize this is the judgment of God, but we must cry out for mercy in the midst of judgment. Shouldn’t these treacherous traitors be removed from office? DO we not realize that we are in a deep crisis , faced with external enemies who don’t cripple themselves with this suicidal political correctness as we have done?

Are they not spitting on the sacrifices of those who bled and died for this once great nations?

Those of you who put Obama in power, do you not realize the profound evil you have brought upon America? Is your hatred of our nation sated yet, or do you want to take us further down the toilet?

America was great… but only because she was good. Alexis Detoqueville , a French researcher and scholar was sent to study the vibrant young nation in the early 19th century and came back with this haunting quote…

There is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America, and there can be no greater proof of its utility and of its conformity to human nature than that its influence is powerfully felt over the most enlightened and free nation of the earth.

In the United States, if a political character attacks a sect [denomination], this may not prevent even the partisans of that very sect, from supporting him; but if he attacks all the sects together [Christianity], every one abandons him and he remains alone.

I do not question that the great austerity of manners that is observable in the United States arises, in the first instance, from religious faith… .its influence over the mind of woman is supreme, and women are the protectors of morals. There is certainly no country in the world where the tie of marriage is more respected than in America or where conjugal happiness is more highly or worthily appreciated… ~

In the United States the influence of religion is not confined to the manners, but it extends to the intelligence of the people…. Christianity, therefore reigns without obstacle, by universal consent; the consequence is, as I have before observed, that every principle of the moral world is fixed and determinate..

I sought for the key to the greatness and genius of America in her harbors…; in her fertile fields and boundless forests; in her rich mines and vast world commerce; in her public school system and institutions of learning. I sought for it in her democratic Congress and in her matchless Constitution. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.(Democracy in America   Alexis de Tocqueville)

We have sinned and aren’t good anymore. That breaks our hearts! Dear God we need you! How do we pray for the success of an Obama foreign policy? How dii we pray for the success of a homosexualized and transgendered military?  How do we send the very cream of our youth into this very degraded and perverted military?

Would you have your son  (or God forbid your daughter) shed one drop of blood so that other nations can have the “freedom of abortion or homosexuality)? Obama had our children bleed and die to set up Shariah constitutions in Iraq and Afghanistan!

I admit I have never served in the military, having come of age in the late 1970s, (the VOLAR) and having married young. But I have always had the utmost respect for the US military and those who have served. But evil men now hold the levers of power here. God help us!

 

Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.  Behold, O Lord, and consider to whom thou hast done this. Shall the women eat their fruit, and children of a span long? shall the priest and the prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord?  The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the day of thine anger; thou hast killed, and not pitied.  Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the Lord’s anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.(Lamentations 2:19-22)

The Final Form of The Roman Empire…Europe pt 6

 

And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.  And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.  And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.  And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.(Daniel 2:40-43)

Amazing events of prophetic import have been occurring in Europe lately, as we see swelling multitudes of refugees and opportunists disembark in the millions in Greece, Italy, Spain, and any other possible port of entry into the European community, at the invitation of Angela Merkel.

These teeming crowds of mostly military aged young Muslim men, have come to participate in the generous welfare benefits offered by the socialistic European governments.Many of them have bypassed the initial European countries, in favor of the more generous benefits, (“Salaries” as one Immigrant called it) doled out in Germany and Sweden.

It turns out they have come in part, for other more ulterior motives, for the religion of Islam has a doctrine called the Hijra, which teaches that the best way for Islam to spread throughout the earth is by immigration into “Kafir” nations.

How important is immigration to Islam? The year “one” in Ilamic thought, is not the year of Mohammed’s birth, or even of his “vision”. It is the year of Mohammed’s Hijra, or immigration, from Mecca, where he was rejected as a prophet and even driven out of town, to Yathrib, an Arabian Jewish settlement which welcomed him but did not receive his preaching.

Mohammed signed a ten year treaty with each of the three Jewish tribes, but within three years, he broke the treaty, with each of them, when He grew strong enough, and slaughtered all of the men of those tribes and sold their wives and children into slavery!

I contend that this influx of non assimilable Muslims, willing to take welfare checks*,  is the clay mixing with the iron, fatally weakening the European peoples, at this near final phase of the last gentile Empire to rule over God’s people Israel.

There is no doubt that the European Union is an antisemitic, non democratic, and even anti-Christian superstate entity.

We rejoice that in the recent BREXIT elections the British people spoke for untold millions of other western peoples throughout the world, that they reject this globalistic nonsense which has wreaked so much damage and destruction to formerly successful civilizations, by their sick multicultural policies, bringing in the floods of pliable and illiterate immigrants to civilized modern societies, knowing full well  of the crime, rape robbery and havoc they bring with them.

That which was recently iron, (relatively strong societies),have been mixed with clay, by the Kings of the earth and their leaders. Perhaps they did this to counter the dearth of natural births in their nations due to the sexual revolution with its twisted offspring, abortion/birthcontrol, and homosexuality. But why bring in incompatible and intransigent people?

I think they did it  that they might strip every last vestige of Christianity from the west.

The European Union may well fall apart, as those left on the sinking ship, the HMS European Union, clamor for national referendums of their own. It is morphing into something else, before our eyes.

We don’t know the particulars, but we do know some of the details of the last incarnation of the Roman Empire, for both Daniel and the Apostle John saw visions of it and warned us.

The dream revealed by God to a pagan prophet, Nebuchadnezzar, was of the statue of a man. Paganism is humanism, so it is fitting that the last image of the combined pagan, antiGod enterprise, would be a tremendous statue of a man!   The final stage of  the statue reveals ten toes. In some way the final phase of the Roman Empire of anti-Christ will have ten specific parts to it.

The Most High revealed the same truth to Daniel, but from another vantage point. A humanistic, pagan King would see the pagan enterprise in a man-centered way, so God showed him the statue of a man.

But a Hebrew prophet would see the same reality from a God centered perspective, so God showed him the pagan enterprise as a series of voracious beasts. The nations of the world , especially in Empire, are fierce beasts.

Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.(Daniel 7:23-26)

In this case the ten toes are revealed as ten Horns, or powers. These horns are ten Kings Shortly afterwards,  another King shall rise among them, and turn and supplant three of the original Kings.

This “other King”shall be remarkable for his bold words; his open blasphemy, and his pronouncements against God, and the Holy people of God.
The Apostle John also saw this development. He saw a Beast with “ten horns”, but only seven heads.He also saw a “beast” speaking arrogantly, against the Most High,

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. (Revelation 13:5-9)

His reign is short lived, 42 months, or 3 and a half years, or one thousand two hundred and sixty days. Watch for this, it means the end is very close…are you ready?

An Insightful Response To Recent Articles…

 

A Dear Friend and mentor in Faith and Love relied to my recent article and I thought I would share his insights for discussion. I couldn’t agree more with Him on the abortion/birth control issue an its unfortunate but predictable consequences….PBR

 

One train of thought that I’ve had for some time (20 years) that never gets much mention or press: the great ‘symptom or by-product’ sins of the America in our lifetime are abortion (1970s) and no fault divorce (1990s) , and maybe contraception (1960s) and the refusal of western church men to obey the command to be fruitful and to multiply. All the immediate result of the ERA, and feminism in the church and it’s ungodly ‘female’ response to the original problem, which was men in the post WW2 church refusing to bow their knee, and lead their countries, and then serve their communities and families, as the churched men in previous generations had done. Judgement begins at the ‘house’, and the results were obvious and almost immediate. (Within a generation or two). We most likely would not have these societal and immigration ills if we had 1) the 53 million aborted lives still around, and 2) less folks on poverty payrolls because of an uninvolved father.

Not sure if you knew this or not, but Eisenhower got saved and baptised as a Presbyterian in his first term in office, and attempted to speak to the nation about a spiritual revival. They were not even remotely interested in the heart part. Got awful engrossed in the external stuff during the 50s, though. It is what I call the real root sin of ‘unbelief and rebellion’. The by-product sins would NOT be far behind, within a decade or two.

I say ‘America’ and not ‘the west’. Europe was a generation ahead of us on ‘higher criticism of the scripture’ issue, and in their turn towards lack of belief and participation, and towards progressivism/socialism; and in their unwillingness to procreate for God’s glory. Post WW1 was their ‘decision time’. Notice that they were already intensely ‘immigrating’ back in the sixties when we were just deciding to promote feminism into the church: Britain recruited from their muslim colonies like Pakistan and Egypt, and France from theirs (Libya and Tunisia), . And their numbers had already dropped to where they had decided that low income immigrants were necessary to fill the declining birth rates so they could still have their form of social security retirement. And so they are about a generation ahead of us on PC too, and on the horrors of sharia. But it was their ‘logic’ that you could give up their ‘birthright’, and have immigrants pay their SS taxes back then. Sound familiar?

Over here, it’s been the Chamber of Commerce, (that herald of reason on the Republican side), that is promoting this Godless answer to the 53 million abortions, and to contraception) and the declining retirement ‘kitty’. Even more so than the globalists… “Bring them here, and you won’t have to face the consequences of cutting/killing off your children in this generation.” Our national immigration policy is more skewed towards Hispania, and Europe towards the Middle East, but it’s just a matter of time…The logic is the same though, just historically and geographically slightly different. For me, the blindness that comes from the sin of greed has blinded most of our republican brethren towards buying into the same ‘logic’. And the Chamber is more than willing to fan the flame….

Speaking of the Chamber and it’s seduction of wealth, it has been the chief temptress of the church in another area. Free trade. It’s fascinating to me that God’s judgment also has taken the form of concurrently shipping our jobs overseas while the majority of the ‘church’ has cheered it on, all in the name of (sins of idolatry by any other name) constitutionalism, and libertarianism. It is neither. It is just plain ole greed, which we fully embraced as a culture in the 1980s.

Maybe our national sin of the 2000s? A Trust in technology, and in weaponry. I think that our involvement in Iraq/Afghanistan is a direct result there as well. (Since we’ve never discussed it previously, I”m about one less step critical of Bush than of Obama), two of the worst presidents in History, in my opinion, both used by God to usher in His judgements.

Something that’s interesting to me is that though Europe’s marriage rate is lower, so is their divorce rate. And they have more intact nuclear units that we do over here. Their national logic is not as messed up as ours regarding families, and their understanding of ‘community’ is not quite as dysfunctional. The ideas/sins of individualism, and no fault divorce, and of mixed family units and of ‘single mother led’ units, and revolving father units, is uniquely our own sin, and the unique consequences of our sin choices regarding no fault divorce. We’ll see if that settles out now that the majority of Americans too (as reported by Barna), favor co-habitation

Brexit from the EU? They’ve embraced democratic socialism for a generation in abundance, but it appears our day is now coming there as well. We’ll see if this move by England back towards nationalism precedes the move towards religion like it has in much of rest of the continent. Sad that our Czech nation is one of the few moving full throttle towards globalism and away from nationalism and religion. Funny AND sad, I’ve always found it interesting when you hear discussions about industrialized countries vs our American puritanism, and never any discussions of the obvious consequences and results of our ‘big brothers’ and their multiple decisions away from historic Christianity, though we’ve had at least a full generation to observe all of it as it developed and came to fruition.

Irony of irony, that Godless country of Japan has almost none of these aforementioned judgements. They have their own unique set of problems, to be sure, but not many of these. Funfact: one of my former members (from El Salvador) is now in the Dept of Education back in his country, and for three weeks here now, is on a discovery trip to Japan to study their effective rural one room school houses, –modeled and trained for them by us after our conquest of their country after WW2.

Enough rambling. Thoughts?

As always, love and tender affections from our clan to yours.,
