Gods Weapons of Warfare

Most are impressed with the fire power of sophisticated weapons. Read on, and find the most sophisticated weaponry possible.  One is you, and me, while the other is making history today. With the final assault waiting occurrence through two unnamed godly assassins. As all this, manifests itself in multiple ways.

But first this note, this discussion is the result of the discussions, “The Proof is in the Pudding,” on the fifth and those that followed. Featuring the rise and fall of three great nations, Israel, Great Britain and the United States. Followed by this the concluding discussion in this short series.

Life is complex and difficult as residents in various nation states, but it’s far less complex and difficult when some very basic and fundamental truths are understood and accepted. We are instructed that, “The earth is the LORD’S and the fullness thereof; the world and they who dwell therein,” Psalms 24:1. From that awareness the practice of the following. He has shown you O man, what is good. And, what does the LORD require of you? But to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God, Micah 6:8.

Centuries ago humans broke away from God and decided to go their own way. By forming kingdoms and nations independent of reliance upon the God of creation. So we have in Gods world two kingdoms at polar opposites with each other. Which accounts for all the misery suffered by the earths inhabitants. As we will learn, Gods weapons of warfare are His methods to encourage humanity to return to a reliance upon Him. The eternal message of His scriptures for individuals and nation states.

With some nations incorporating into their governments some semblance of recognition upon a sovereign deity. Nations like Great Britain because of Ephraim, son of Joseph whose ancestors founded that once great nation. But is now being torn apart by its Muslim population, mostly Pakistani, because of its liberal immigration polices.

Lesson learned, wake up America the children of Manasseh whose ancestors founded the United States. A nation following the path of Great Britain. Occurring in the period after Christ, or AD, Ano Domino, Latin for after Christ. Even language is being used to bury the influence of Christ through the ages. Today it’s more political correct to use the suffix when referring to a time period as CE, meaning the common era. Which has given way to the irregular form of Anno Domini. As for this padre, I have no time for political correctness it’s Ano Domino, after Christ. Keep Christ at the forefront at all times and not just at seasonal holidays.

Nations before the common era were abbreviated, B.C.C. Because God said that He would never be without a witness upon this earth. He made it happen by sending people like Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ruth, Esther, including many others, like Mary and Martha.

God exercises His ability to communicate with humanity in two ways. He sent men like Paul and Barnabas to give verbal witness that people should turn from their vanities unto the living God, who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things in them. “Who in bygone generations allowed nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness,” Acts 14:16-17. Make no mistake, the rains, or lack thereof is another way God offers witness of Himself to humanity.

God uses ordinary people to reveal the vanities that separate people from Him. And whenever they do something spectacular, the people want to reward the messenger with vanities. With Paul and Barnabas shunning such behaviors and responding in an appropriate manner which readers can discover by reading Acts 14:11-15. Be sure to read verse 19 because service to Christ has its consequences. Unless you are an American Christ centered person, but that is changing ever so silently through very subtle ways. When a time will come, when it will not be subtle at all.

The second way God gives witness to his displeasure with humanity is through weather patterns. Which seem to have peripheral effects through the manifestation of diseases. Severing as death destroying plagues. Which include food shortages and lack of water. Occurrences that appear to come out of nowhere, and claim millions of lives. The Godly savvy know better because we long ago mastered the truths of Psalms 24:1 and Acts 14:17.

When God exercises anger because of His displeasure with humanities behaviors. Instead of repenting from what displeases God. Most people respond by cursing God. And we see a lot that occurring today, sometimes in very subtle ways. Like denying Jesus His rightful place in our public schools and other public domains. Which was the expected, not to long ago, and the country and its people sang more songs of joy. O how wonderful it is, “food and gladness,” Acts 14:17. Simply put, turn your back on God, and God will turn His back on you. And there will not be food, or gladness, and a whole lot more.

Revelation 11, is an interesting chapter because it is near the end of Ano Domino period. God will invest unusual powers upon two unnamed assassins. Who will have the power to stop the rains, to turn the waters to blood, inflict the earth with plagues, verse six. And these final assassins will be equipped with a self defense mechanism. Resulting in the death of their assailants by fire, verse five.

People not willing to pick up His cross, and follow Him are simply declared to be not worthy of Him, Mathew 10:38. Meaning that He will not be there for them when they need Him. Watch out you fancy dressed, shiny motorized people of Sunday gathers in wood and concrete palaces. Because, Jesus was talking about you, when He spoke the words recorded in Matthew 10:27-28.

None of us, who are Christ followers can be what we should be for Christ. Compounding the matter, many of us can’t be what we want to be for Christ. So this scared edict which is ours and sets an impossible standard, but we are rescued. For there is no temptation or challenge that is not common to all Christ followers. God is faithful, who will not allow us to be tempted challenged beyond what we are able to bear. He will make away for escape that we may be able to bear it, 1 Corinthians 10:13. In addition, we have the beauty of the 23rd. Psalms. Note verse 3, “He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.” And verse 6, “Surely goodness, and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD, forever!”

What Christ expects is our best effort for His cause. Through the exercise of our faith in such ways as the picking up of His cross to follow Him. Christ understands that we can’t all be a Mary or a Martha, a Paul or Barnabas.

And know the beauty of Numbers 6:24-26. For the LORD, will bless you and keep you. He will make his face shine upon you, and he will be gracious to you. And most of all, the LORD will lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Do you have any idea what people would pay, if inner peace could be bought? Many, many bundles of dollars. And here it is for each, and every one of us Christ followers, free! No matter what our station is in bearing His cross happens to be.

A story beyond belief

No doubt you have heard it said, seeing is to believe. So it was during the lifetime of Jesus, as it is today. Jesus went to Bethany, a suburb to the east of Jerusalem. He went there to have dinner with close friends. He learned that his friend Lazarus had died. Jesus did not pay much attention to the news of his death. He dined with the sisters of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. Both were close confidants of Jesus, with Mary being very special. Perhaps his wife according to the Gnostic Gospels. And it was the woman from the Gnostic Gospels, who kept the men together, and gave them purpose after the murder of Jesus.

With Lazarus now dead for four days. Both Martha and Mary were very upset because they thought had Jesus arrived sooner. Lazarus would have lived. Jesus accompanies the women to the grave sight, there He weeps. The stone was removed from the grave, and Jesus commanded, “Lazarus come forth!” Jesus had given instructions that the grave clothes be removed. The account is described in John, chapter eleven. With many having seen the miracle He preformed, now believed, note verses 43-45.

The miracle of Lazarus being dead for four days, John 11:39, and returning to life verses 43-44, is not something that will occur today. So the Christ scoffers, the vast unbelieving public will not witness such miracles today. And thus believe the Christ message of personal redemption.

But with secular history unfolding before our eyes today, those events are miracles in themselves. Biblical pronouncements centuries before the birth of Christ. I like to think of them as road signs pointing the way to the graveyard. This roadway has been under construction for some time. Graveyard because Jesus described them as the most tumultuous days in recorded history. They are yet to come, but this is what Jesus said about them, “And except those days should be shortened, no flesh shall be saved, [survive] but for the elects sake [Christ followers] those days shall be shortened,” Matthew 24:22.

Jesus touched upon a theme from the prophet Daniel. Who referred to those times as the abomination of desolation, Matthew 24:15. With occurrences suggesting that Israel may lose its capital city, Jerusalem, to a great configuration of armies. Led by the revised Roman Empire, a powerful reorganized ten state union but today recognized as the European Union. Given the moral authority to attack by the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church. They will be joined by the Muslim Arab world. Who will defeat Israel, and the Christian West.

Th Christian West will function outside the influence of the revised Roman Empire and the Roman papacy. And in particular, the sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh. Ephraim whose ancestors formulated Great Britain, and Manasseh whose ancestors formulated the United States. Watch for the discussions, “The Proof Is In The Pudding,” and “The Proof Still Remains in the Pudding,” for expanded details.

This will be a complex and intense journey. But in the end, if you have not already, perhaps you will join those of us, who like Joshua have seen to believe. “And if it seems evil to serve the LORD, choose for yourself this day whom you will serve …. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD,” Joshua 24:15.

Power of the mystical

While Jesus lived, he was a constant challenger of the established order of society. Jesus said, I have not come to bring peace. He also said, that people must take upon themselves the burdens of society. Christ refers to this behavior, as taking the purpose of the cross upon ones self.

Jesus was a revolutionary because to challenge the established order of society requires a dissatisfaction with the structure of the ruling powers. With an equal determination to tumble that order with something new and better.

The writers of the gospels recorded that the people in power wanted Jesus dead. Imagine the consequences, if a movement gained momentum in the United State, and the ruling powers could visualize their collapse.

Christ taught that the servant is not greater than his master. To be a Christian is to be a servant. Who is the vehicle of service and change.

In any struggle, by Christians, that is our obligation. It must be remembered, and practiced that violence is not the Christ way. At least not the physical violence of destruction. It is written that those who exercise violence upon others will themselves experience violence.

However, from the Christian God example, we known God to be a very violent Deity. Obsessed with violence through out the Old Testament. Right on through to the conclusion in the book of Revelation. Christ himself was a hot tempered person as God incarnated in human form.

This supernatural Deity, had supernatural powers at his disposal. He possessed the ability of mind control, causing people to do what they normally would not do. Had the power to influence the weather. Making hurricane Katrina look like a thunder storm. Could summon legions of Angels at the snap of a finger.

We mere mortals do not have such influence and power at our disposal. With great certainty, it is good that we mortals lack that influence and power.

Christ gave Christians a power different from his own. We call it Holy Communion. It has a psychological power when Christians are attempting to accomplish a difficult task. Most Christians are familiar with the symbolism of the breaking of bread and the drinking of wine. In itself a avenue for psychological strength. But the sign of the cross, is less familiar.

It comes when the clergy makes the sign of the cross. Blessing the parishioner with the “patience of the faith and of the saints.”

Encouraging the worn out parishioner, at communion, to persevere with patience because the work of Christians is exhausting.

Suggesting that the parishioner look, and recall the strength of the saints. The encouragement may come from the Lutheran clergyman, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who opposed Hitlers, Germany, or Roman Catholic, Archbishop, Oscar Romero, who opposed the El-Salvador governments use of death squads. Perhaps a neighbor, who makes the work of the cross a service.

By organizing congressional legislation for a livable wage. Meaning a fair dollar for every hour worked. Pegged to inflation, so that when prices go up, so do wages. Maybe its a campaign to pressure the congress to create a equitable tax system for working America. And certainly, real health care reform. One that does not cater to the health care industry.

And most certainly, an end to American involvement in siding with certain Muslims while opposing others. Because it sustains wars that can’t be won, and because American lives are more important than government symbolism and pride.

Better to concentrate on the war at home. With the eradication of a greater evil than Nazism ever was to the world community, the Islamic community.

Here are some additional thoughts concerning Holy Communion. Necessary because the power of the screment has been so distorted by the modern church that it is mainly useless. This is the result of the clergy sucking up, if you please, with the secular power structures. They did this to secure power, and influence for themselves at the expense of the people.Thus, becoming embraced by governments; enabling them to enjoy the comfortable good life. The state, and its corporate conglomerate parts are the natural enemy of the people. Always working to suppress, and diminish the necessities of the people. Christians should not allow this condition to exist. All governments should be made to exist, and to serve the welfare of the people. The way it is today in the United States, the people exist to serve the welfare of the state. To change this requires hard work. People come to Holy Communion from the war zone of state corruption. Communion is served for the weary. Communion serves as renewal for body and spirit. That is if Christians have picked up the cross for the cause of Christ.

With a greater insight to purpose and intent of communion. A study of the Last Super of Christ could be equally beneficial. Discovering that every spoken word is a promise. If that occurs, many communion experiences will be sought.

What to expect when birds of the same feather flock together

What is certain about life? Some say taxes and death. Perhaps, but both are not entirely true. Once had some associations with some mafia figures. Not the fictional types from the Sopranos. I remember a 70 year old gangster telling me that he never paid a penny in income taxes. Shortly there after, he lost his life in a shoot out with the Fed’s. He lost his life for certain.

But what happened, after the death of Mr. Mafia? Was his spirit immediately captured, and confined to a place of torment known as Hades? Where he would beg for water to cool his tongue because he was tormented by the flames. No! (cp Luke 16:23-24). A later discussion will explain those verses. They have nothing to do with non-Christians being tormented in hell. Although there is a hell, but it’s reserved for a very special trio.

That passage is a favorite of many Christian clergymen. It is part of what keeps their “cash registers” full. The concept of the eternal fires. Where escape is impossible because verse 25 states, ” a great gulf exist making passage either way impossible.

This doctrine of eternal damnation has made many Christian clergymen very rich. One such person is the famous world traveler evangelist Billy Graham. He became famous by preaching his doctrine ‘fire’ and ‘torment.’ During his crusades for Christ, thousands of people would walk the isles during his ‘alter calls.’

To be greeted by well trained counselors. Who would show them, how they could change their future destiny. Escaping a destiny of eternal torment in the fires of hell. For a destiny in heaven, with Jesus.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was nothing more than a business. Today it functions under the leadership of one of his sons. The bottom line was, and still is like that of any any other business which is profit. The product they sell is an escape route from hell. With the by product being heaven.

The Billy Graham Association partners up with specific churches to help plan his mega crusades.

When he arrives for his crusades, thousands of dollars are raised from his constant pleading for money during his religious services.

Professional fund raisers scout the community looking for wealthy donors.

Graham employed talented PR people to work the media. His crusades become the the news event of the day. Graham always made sure he had name recognition with the rich and powerful. Men like former and disgraced President Richard Nixon.

Wealthy people like to be associated with success, because they help keep the cash registers of the Graham association full. So you see, birds of the same feather really do flock together. Because they need each other, in order to survive financially, religiously and politically.

This padre knows Billy Graham. Not on a personal level, but more of an acquaintance relationship. Having been been invited to small social gatherings behind closed doors. Listening to his tales of propaganda. Later decided Graham was a slick cash artist. You would have to be with him in small quarters to really appreciate his charismatic personality. He could most likely peddle any scam and make it believable. So believable that local churches rushed to buy into his mega crusades.

There is a direct benefit for the participating churches. Those trained counselors mention earlier. They direct these new converts into participating churches. And they anticipated that their ‘cash registers,’ will also bulge from these new members monetary contributions.

Graham made two statements concerning the death of his wife, Ruth Graham. He said, “I will miss her terribly, and look forward even more to the day when I can join her in heaven.” At her funeral, Graham said this of his wife of 64 years, “Ruth Graham, retained her beauty even in death, and surely had a great reception in heaven.”

Ruth Graham may well have retained her beauty in death. But she did not receive a great reception in heaven, nor will Billy join her there. At least not in the foreseeable future, but maybe later with millions of others.

Both of Grahams statements were erroneous.

This discussion has been about getting rich through scare tactics. People like Billy Graham, through their evangelical associations. Have purposefully, and systematical destroyed the primary function of the church. Which is far more, than preaching eternal life through Jesus. It’s about not allowing society to corrupt the values and traditions of the Christ doctrines.

There is no money to be earned by preaching those other aspects of Jesus Christ. Which is a preaching of rebellion, hard work, and sacrifice unto death to preserve our complete Judeo Christian traditions. That is not to say that people do not need to have a spiritual birth through Christ. We all need to experience newness of life through Christ. Because any attempt to participate in the preaching of rebellion is hard work, and sometimes requires sacrifices unto death and it has no meaning or reward. Without the new life made available to us through His murder and resurrection.

But the Graham doctrine keeps Billy rich even today, like $300,000 annually.

Most likely Graham, has not paid his fair share of income taxes either. The government provides people like Graham with all kinds of exits from the nations unfair tax system. In return the Grahams of America help bring the people to the submission and control of the government. Through their constant preaching of ‘hell fires’ and ‘eternal torment’. Which is contrary, to the teachings of Jesus. Is it any wonder that the church is mostly useless.

According to the Bible, not all us will die, not even the physical death feared by most. So then, neither seem to be entirely correct concerning taxes and death.

This discussion will be continued. Sharing a journey of what happens at death, and what the dead, and living can expect.

Christianity and its appeal to millions

What attracts people to Christianity, Christianity of all stripes? Most likely, high on the list of reasons is the ‘give me,’ or ‘do for me;’ petitions to God. Also the fear of the unknown, like the prospects of hell, with its eternal burning fires and unsatisfiable eternal thirst. Which is just likely, to gain the petitioner the non responsive ear of God. And maybe that’s what they fear most, but keep it to themselves.

It would not accomplish much to elaborate about the ‘give me,’ or ‘do for me’ prayers. Because most believe what they want to believe, regardless of what the scriptures teach. And of course, such beliefs are help along by the church. Who insist that God is a ‘give you’ and ‘do for you,’ God. But when petitioners, complain that the ‘give me,’ and ‘and do for me;’ God fails to deliver. The church responds saying it was not God’s will. Because people want to, and need to believe; they accept such replies.

Many modern day churches are about misleading people concerning the purpose and function of our Christian mission. Holding steadfast with God, who satisfies every need through prayer. Which is contrary to the teachings of Christ, and the experience of parishioners. The church will adhere to its currant path. Because many modern day churches, are mostly a cash machines. A cash machine that must generate mega bucks for the promotion of image, prestige, and power. And along the way, the church might pick up some, not so controversial, social issue as the cause of the church. Never really able to accomplish much because many modern day churches have forsaken the Christ mission.

If parishioners, or non church people want to know the truth, ignore the teachings of most churches. Truth can be determined form a careful examination of only the gospels and of course, a careful study of the Acts of the Church (book of Acts). It would not hurt to browse the book of Revelation; especially chapters two and three. There you will discover the Christ plan, mission and experience. Which is vastly different, from what many modern churches teach.

To hear most churches talk, one would think that the place called heaven will be a very crowed place. Not so suggested, Jesus in the gospel of Matthew. Resulting with the disciples becoming exceedingly amazed at what Jesus said. Asking him, who, then, can, be saved, Matthew 19:24-25? Compared with Revelation 3:16-17, “I will spew you from my mouth” because of misplaced attitudes, and Revelation 22:12, to give to every person according to their accomplishments. And this ‘give me’ and ‘do for me’ attitude comes about as a result of not understanding the prayer that Christ taught us to pray in Matthew 6:9-13. That prayer teaches Christians about attitude, mission, experiences which is all about the kingdom and glory of God.

Top Cop hopes to bring down Obama

Neil Sankey, retired Scotland Yard police officer, who specialized in investigating organized crime for nearly two decades. Now has his investigative sights on U.S. president, Barack Obama. But he’s doing it from California, where he operates his own detective agency. His mission is to prove that Barack Obama is not a true American and is ineligible to be president.

He came to a personal realization that Obama just wasn’t who he said he pretended to be. Describing his behavior as extreme even for a democrat. So he started doing some investigating of Obama’s foreign roots. Looking at his questionable birth certificate and rather suspicious multiplicity of social security numbers. Then discovering that the White House had spent $2m to cover up any questions about his birth certificate and the multiplicity of his social security numbers.

That was enough for Sankey to try and block his inauguration. He contacted all 538 electoral college representatives. The people, who formally elect the president. But he discovered that $2m goes along in preventing the public from discovering the truth.

Not deterred by his failure with electoral college. Most recently while carry out an exhaustive search of databases, he found at least 140 different identification numbers and addresses for one named, ‘Barack Obama.’ So what does that prove? According to Sankey, nothing but suspicion, that demands, and will get more investigative time. Because that what good cops do, they get leads and track them down.

Conspiracy theories surrounding Presidents is not new. Such theorists suspected that President Bush, was the organizer of the 9/11 attacks. While president, Clinton had to contend with them, because they thought he had his friend and White House legal adviser, Vince Foster, murdered. But Sankey, is different because he is not focused on what Obama does. But rather, he is focused on who Obama is based upon his citizenship.

He is not alone because Orly Taitz an emigrant from Israel now a Californian. Who is both a dentist and a lawyer, has filed numerous suits in federal courts. Attempting to block troop deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. On the grounds that troops should not be taking orders from an illegally serving commander-in-chief.

President Obama is the only President, who has had his citizenship called into question. And there are those, who say, that people who challenge his citizenship, or his political polices, are plain and simple racists. Which of course is a tactic used to shut down challenges, and inquires about a persons legitimacy to serve along with their political agenda. (source material for Sankey and Taitz from the Guardian.co.uk, as reported by Ed Pilkington, 22 November 09,19:45 hrs, GMT, from New York)

My hope is that people like Neil Sankey and Orly Taitz succeed because the country deserves better than what it’s getting from Obama. And the focus must be on, who Obama is and not on what he does.

For me, that is the question, who is President Obama? I see in him as a President far to sympathetic to Islam and its agenda. I see a President, who sides with Arab/Islamic nations against Israel.

God has spoken clearly about that, when he said, “I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curse you; and in you (Abraham) shall all families of the earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:3. And from the genealogy of Abraham, we have our Judea-Christian relationship with Israel. And the nations long history of support for Israel, has been part of the foundation for American strength and prosperity. Obama is tinkering with that support to the hoots of Muslims everywhere, and Obama loves it.

And Obama’s open support for gay rights, is another prohibition issued by God, and found in Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13. God declares it to be an abomination. We are ordered by God to keep his statutes and not commit any abominations that offends him. Not the nation, nor its people, Leviticus 18:26. The consequences are clear, the nations strength and prosperity will end, Leviticus 18:25 and Leviticus 20:22.

And such prohibitions are carried over to The New Testament in Romans 1:24-27. The nations destiny is pictured in verses 28-31. With this God’s personal condemnation, “Who, knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them,” verse 32. Note ‘worthy of death’ because death in our scriptures does not always mean physical death. It can mean the death of the strength of a nation and its prosperity. Which seems for now, the path the United States is traveling under Obama’ presidency.
And that is what I meant when I said, America, deserves better than what it is getting from Obama. And may God grant it through any means acceptable to his divine judgment. Remember, God gave of himself in his own death, John 10:30. To institute the church, Matthew 16:18, I, Christ will build my church, and upon this rock and the gates of hell will prevail against my church. So a revitalized church can restore the nations strength and prosperity. Or it can continue to sleep, and be held accountable, Revelation 22:12.

The Magic of Thanksgiving called Homage

It is the duty of every person to render to the Creator such homage, and such only as he believes to be acceptable to him. This duty is precedent both in order of time and degree of obligation, to the claims of Civil Society. Before any person can be considered as a member of Civil Society, they must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe. James Madison, fourth President of the United States, 1809-1817.

In our modern world many secular forces are busy at work. Attempting to negate any necessity to render to the Creator his due homage, as a duty and obligation for prosperity. The Old Testament is filled with the failure of the Jews to give God his just respect. Followed by many dreadful consequences. It carries over into the New Testament and moving into our current time. Where duty and obligation to our Creator is being neutralized by secularism, insisting that such homage in a modern world is irrelevant. Especially as it relates to being a subject of the Governor of the universe. It to will carry dreadful consequences.

From Colossians 2:8, appears this advice, “Beware lest any person spoil you through vain philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of people, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ.”

Enjoy the Day! And may this be your Thanksgiving experience, “The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you. The LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace,” Numbers 6:24-26. Times move on, and society changes, but the ages conclude with this final benediction, “He who testifies these things says, ‘Surely I come quickly,’ Amen! Even so, come Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all,” Revelation 22:20-21.

But we can not on our own even pay homage to our creator because it is *contrary* to our nature, we simply refuse through our fallen instinct. Until God in his mercy intervened. Blotting out everything *contrary* to us which was embedded in his laws. Moving it out of our way and nailing it to the cross, Colossians 2:14.

Just how does one benefit from the scriptural benedictions from the books of Numbers and Revelation? It has it start through Colossians in the following manner. “No person can come unto me, except the Father who has sent me draws them; and I will raise them up at the last day,” John 6:44. Concluding with this magical or supernatural phenomenon, ” The wind blows where it will, and you can hear the sound of it, but you can not tell from where it came from and where it will go; so it is with everyone born of the spirit, John 3:8.

Spooky evil haunts the country side

In Ephesians 6:12, these words appear, ” We wrestle not against flesh and blood. But against principalities, (suggesting tyrannical authority) against powers, (suggesting nations) against the rulers the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Verse 12 is not about supernatural entities such as demons and the like. Some think that because of the clause “we wrestle not against flesh and blood.” Rather it is reminiscent of unusual state powers. Suggesting a correlation with religious authority in high places. which results spiritual wickedness.

This scenario has taken upon itself different aspects through history. For this writer clergyman, its current application applies to Islam. Islam is about tyrannical state power. Even where elections take place like in Iran. It is the religious clerics like, Supreme Leader, Ayotollah Ali Khamanei, Chief of State, who rule. Elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, of Iran is the head of state. But is accountable to religious clerics like the Chief of State and his religious clerical Parliament. It is a country where certain crimes are punishable by stoning offenders to death. That is because the countries judicial system is also controlled by religious clerics who administer justice in accordance with law as spelled out in the Qur’an.

To greater or lesser degrees that is the state of conditions in all Muslim countries. A country of lesser degree would be Pakistan. There the religious clerics went to war against the government because of a refusal to implement Islamic law as the countries judicial system. Following there defeat at the Mosque. Supporters through out the country took to the streets the next day. Ramming their car loaded with explosives killing three policemen. Taking upon themselves suicide missions killing others. Such behavior represents moral and spiritual bankruptcy. And Islamic clerics, have the gull to talk about moral depravity through out the West.

What sane stable civilized community wants such spiritual darkness in their community? Who exhibit a behavior not known to a spices made up of flesh and blood. They must be the incarnation of pure evil. Who are ruled by the Islamic spiritual leaders who drag them down to the pits of spiritual darkness. Only to emerge as creatures without blood and flesh. With goals of bringing their darkened spirituality into high places within world governments.

The United States is under attack with the most recent attack occurring at Fort Hood, Texas. Led by jihadi Muslim Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. It’s a different style of warfare. Different from what most Americans picture in their minds. Which are images of tanks, troop movement with air support. Gone for now and maybe forever. Until maybe they try a repeat of the their 1967 war efforts. Only this time with a new player, Iran. Who will bring to the war theater, a nuclear arsenal. By civilization as, we currently know it.

Western governments are dumb founded and mostly unprepared to react to this Islamic menace that is reeking havoc and destruction around the world. Because it is warfare, completely foreign to them. It is the warfare using the weaponry of spiritual wickedness in high places, as noted in verse twelve.

These are entities of some foreign source engulfed in spiritual darkness. Who call themselves holy warriors or jihadist and practice Islam.

These jihadist have render the world’s most powerful army confused and helpless, wherever the war theater happens to be.

Iran is feeding the insurgency with holy warriors. By training 20-60 Iraqis at a time. Who are these insurgents? They are Shiite Muslims. The training operation is funded by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force. There training facilities are in Iran. The trainers are from the Quds Forces and with assistance from Hezbollah’s holy warriors.

This was made public by United States, Brigadier General, Kevin Bergner, the nations chief spokes person for operations in Iraq, under President Bush. According to the General the evidence is indisputable. Which caused President Bush to threaten Iran with certain unspecified consequences. Generally interrupted as a possible military attack. Instead President Bush sent another battle group of ships to join the others off the Iranian coast. At a cost of billions of dollars to the American taxpayers.

Meaning nothing to the Iranians because they have a score to settle with the United States. When the time is right, they will exact their revenge. Bush is gone and Obama is here but little has changed. Except Iran is closer to exacting their revenge.

In contrast the Iranians continue doing what they do best. Reek mayhem and havoc for the worlds only remaining super power. Employing well trained, non uniformed holy warriors. Who are poorly equipped jihadist. Compared to the mighty United States Army. Then to inflict more pain to U.S. suffering. They are holding their own against the worlds premier fighting power. At much less the cost for war and with fewer casualties. If that is not enough, the nations they represent are cheering them on to kill more Americans. Even if it means following a defeated army right to the shores of the good old United States of America.

Most Americans do not have the slightest clue as to what is occurring and that’s why the government gets away with their political shenanigans.

Like it or not, the world is engaged in a world war. Not like the world wars of the previous century. This world war, in this, 21 century is a religious war. It is taking place in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and Pakistan where the conflict is more visible. But it is also taking place through out the West, most noticeably in Great Britain. It is also going on in the, United States. Its full force is yet to be applied upon this nation.

What does the public think is **going on**? With numerous failed armed plots against U.S. targets. Targets like 9/11, Fort Dix, JFK airport and now Fort Hood?  The **going on** for most, is to accept the government rhetoric, that it is the work of a few Muslim extremist. Which is a lie because it is open religious warfare. A warfare all Muslims are engaged in one way or another. It is demanded of them from the Qur’an which has been discussed in previous postings.

To answer the question as to **what is going on.** The answer is described in the opening paragraphs of this posting.

People lie so often that when they hear the truth they reject that truth. Muslim truth goes all the way back to the Muslim religions prophet Muhammad. Who said, in March of 632, “I was told to fight all men until they there is no god but Allah.” It was repeated by Iranian Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, in 1979. “We will export our revolution through out the world. Until the calls ‘there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah’ are echoed all over the world.” Then came along Osama bin Laden in 2001. ” I was ordered to fight all people until they say there is no god but Allah and his prophet Muhammad. Followed by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who said, “I am a Muslim first and then an American!” And, he proved it!

And he gained the proud eulogy of infamous Muslim cleric, who spoke for the Muslim community when he said, “Nidal Hasan is a hero. He is a man of conscience, who could not bear the living contradiction of being a Muslim serving in the army that is fighting against his own people. Nidal opened fire on soldiers, who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact, the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the U.S. army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of Men like Nidal,” Anwar al-Awlaki. The former Muslim cleric, who led the Northern Virginia mosque that Hasan attended. And which the 9/11 jihadist, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Hani hanjour and Khalid al-Mihdhar also attended in 2001.

Any religion that uses violence as a means of persuasion to gain acceptance can not have a bases in truth. Rather it represents spiritual darkness in high places. There very presence in our respective countries should be rejected. The call should be get rid of these devils while the getting rid of them is possible.

Does America need cars ramming into our police cars packed with explosive devices? Or suicide bombers, killing Americans in public places? It is our American future, unless we deal with this Muslim menace forcefully, wherever they are found.
