Worlds foremost revolutionary executed

On this day observed as ‘Mournful Friday’ by Christendoms revolutionaries because a fellow human being was killed by the state and the religious leaders of His day. Very much like us because it is written, “For we have not an high priest, who can not be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin,” Hebrews 5:15.

Wherever Jesus went He encouraged resistance to state policies and held the religionist in perfect contempt. Because He said, “I and my Father are one and the same,” John 10:30;14:7;1 John 5:7, and, “Repent or you shall likewise perish,” Luke 13:3. Words still disdained today by Christ deniers whether politicians or religionist. They thought His death would silence His movement. They were correct. The modern church is the perfect whore of the state. We have His disdain for governments recorded in Isaiah 40:15. And His contempt for the church in Revelation 3:14-17. Together they have silenced the Christ objection to state and religious corruption.

So with suspicion of future events Christ offered some parting words.” It is finished,” John 19:30 Standing near the execution spot was the mother of Christ, and Mary Magdalene His personal adviser perhaps history’s most influential women. Jesus looked at His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing near by, He said to His mother, “Woman behold your Son,” John 19:26. Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home, John 19:27. From those words from Jesus, “Woman behold your son.”

Many seek her supernatural intersession. Such an unfortunate occurrence, though blessed is the mother of Christ. Jesus never said that His mother could intercede on behalf of we sinners.

From time to time history puts forth an unusual person, sometimes a man like Jesus and at other times a woman like Mary Magdalene. Who then stand up and oppose the corruption of the state and church. We know what Jesus did. But few know that it was Mary Magdalene, who held the disciples together after the murder of Jesus. According to the Gnostic Bible, found in The Gospel of Mary, “The students were grieved. They wept profoundly saying, “How can we go to the gentiles and preach the gospel of the kingdom of the human child? If they did not spare Him, will we be spared?” Then Mary stood up, greeted them all, and said to her brothers, “Do not weep and do grieve or be irresolute, for His grace will be fully with you and will protect you. Rather let us praise His greatness. He prepared us and made us truly human.”

When Mary said this, she turned their hearts to the good, and they began to discuss the words of the Savior.

That was then but what about today? So the question is asked? What have you done to oppose the ineffectiveness of the state and church? And is there anything that we can do collectively to make the state more answerable to God’s edicts? And the church, a combative operative of the revolutionary Christ? Destroying the church as a snuggle bunny of the state! Can you not see how unchristian America has become from her past?

The Begotten of Strange Children

Thundering across the skies with increasingly greater noise are the teachings of Jacob, who gathered his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days.” (Scriptural text:Genesis 49:1).

We are his children, the offspring of one of Jacob’s sons Joseph. And Joseph had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. With Hosea chiming in and saying, “They have dealt treacherously against the LORD.” Describing this treachery as the “begotten of pagan children.” (Scriptural text:Hosea 5:7a,b, KJV). Declared to be behaviors by thought, actions and accomplished deeds which are viewed as the ultimate departure from His counsel, as recorded in the scriptures. And from the last discussion, arose the question, to be answered here. Just what might be some of those departures?

For now, two such departures will be discussed. With the second to be discussed later. With the first being Americas determination to sanction homosexual life styles as accepted behaviors. It is to be expected that the government would sanction and see homosexual behaviors as normal relationships. With such people being afforded all civil conveniences entitled by law to non-homosexual people.

One of the failing and falling beauties of America, is our constitutional wall of separation between church and state. In the past, the Body of Christ, people like you and me, who literally are the church. We were strong enough to keep the government in check. With the ability of the church in all aspects of governance which was able to deny the government the authority to legalize homosexual marriages. How can the church be an influence for God, when even some churches are sanctioning homosexual behavior. Even going so far, as to ordain homosexual clergy. When God’s prohibition against homosexuality is not questionable. It’s clearly recorded for all time in Leviticus 20:13, that such behavior is an abomination to God and worthy of death. Here are the the exact words, “If a man lies with with male, as he lies with a woman, both have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

At one time the union of American states was unanimous in its stand against homosexuality. But, one by one, states fell victim to what God condemns. Some by their state legislators, others by state and federal courts. Finally the nations highest court stepped in and delivered a death blow to America. By spitting in God’s face, by ruling in favor of what He condemned.

May God be gracious to us by raising up His sleeping church to take its rightful role as the inhibitors of all, who would mock God because of His sacred edicts.

There are those, who would argue that Old Testament prohibitions against homosexuality passed with the ushering in of Christendom. Advancing their position by asserting that the Old Testament was about the law while the New Testament is about mercy through grace.

While both arguments have merit, but one does not cancel out the other. Because the New Testament picks up the Old Testament prohibition against homosexuality. In the book of Romans this condemnation of homosexual is found. “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. Who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections; for even their women did exchange the natural use for that which is against nature; and likewise also men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves recompense of their error which was fitting,” Romans 1:24:27.

For closure, behavior is classified as being moral or immoral. With the highest law available for guidance being God’s law as contained in our holy scriptures. Therefore, to be moral is to condemn homosexuality and oppose any governmental ruling that says otherwise. To be immoral is to accept the opposite of what God’s condemns.

Furthermore, there are many mysterious occurrences that surround us. One of which are the scriptures quoted for this discussion. They represent the very living essence of God today. We discover this in John 1:1, which breathes the following, “In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD and the WORD was GOD.” Then examine Isaiah 55:11, followed by John 3:8. That’s why we call it the living breathing WORD!

Changing tides

Never a dull moment, so it seems for John. Seems like after an extraordinary adventure ends and another comes along. This time John tells us that he was approached by an angel. Who said, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot, who sits on many waters. With whom the kings of this earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” Texts:Revelation 17:1-2.

This is a judgment against the United States. No other country has as many waterways for the exporting and importing of all kinds of commerce. Those waterways have made the United States prosperous beyond the imagination of any other country. How was it done? Done through divine permission, who made everything favorable for one of Sarah’s children, the United States. Divinely stamped by God Almighty himself as recorded in Genesis 17:15-16. That’s the way it was suppose to be but is turning out to be a disaster. For the charge is that the United States, has become a spiritual adulterer. Who has made her own people, and the community of nations, drunk with her fornication’s.

So retribution is mine says the Most High. It goes this way, For God has put it in their hearts to fulfill his purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to to the beast, until the words of the God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is the great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. Texts:Revelation 17:17-18.

Whose heart is the angel referring to? The rising Islamic fourth kingdom discussed yesterday.

One last thought before moving on with a couple of questions. From a reading of the scriptures employed yesterday then compared with a reading of Revelation seventeen. It’s possible to get confused because the scriptures from Revelation suggest a different ten horned beast than Daniel’s ten horned beast. Know this because it’s important. Prophecies can find fulfillment sometime in multiple ways through different adversaries of God. Take notes from secular events match them with scriptural developments. It’s a rich experience, and you’ll develop your spiritual understanding in an exponential manner.

So now the questions. Everything seems so scripted by God, so why not just observe and let events take there God announced fulfillment? Can mere mortals, regardless of their numbers change what divine providence from has destined? Yes!

At one time God was so fed up with human behavior that he determined to put an end to human existences. His exact words, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the face of the earth. Both man and beast, creeping things and birds of the air. I am sorry that I made them.”

Why? Then the LORD saw that the wickedness was great on the earth. And that every intent of the thoughts of his heart, was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he made man on the earth, and he was grieved in his heart.

But Noah, found grace in the eyes of the LORD. And the LORD said to Noah, “The end of all flesh is before me. For the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark. A turn around from certain death. With humanity being spared and given a new beginning. Texts from Genesis six.

The Moses Challenge: One day the LORD said to Moses, “Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them, and I may consume them. And, I will make you a great nation.” Texts:Exodus 32:9-10. But Moses challenged God with rational arguments which are found in verses 11-13. So the LORD relented from the harm he would do to his people, according to verse fourteen.

Zephaniah’s Counsel to America:Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O undesirable nation. Before the decree is issued, or the day passes like chaff, before the LORD’S fierce anger comes upon you! Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth. Who have upheld his justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the LORD’S anger. Texts:Joel 2:1-3.

Reversing Changing Tides:”Now therefore,” says the LORD, “Turn to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” Text:Joel 2:12.

If done, it brings this result. So rend your heart, and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and he relents from doing harm. Text:Joel 2:13.

Two Eternal Promises For Tomorrow.

Muslims national and international enemy

What is it about religion that is so captivating? That despite the best efforts of some to diminish its influences. Religion always remains the power to contend with.That has been the case for the United States since its beginnings. If it were not for the separation clause in our Bill of Rights, the United States most likely would be a nation with Christianity as its official state religion. And that state religion would probably be some form of protestant evangelical fundamentalism.

Every American should be grateful that “separation clause” because religion represents one of the greatest evils perpetuated upon citizens of any country. Women and men are not capable of speaking for God. When they attempt to speak for God, the result is a people oppressed and often brutalized. It does not matter which flavor of religion a person prefers. Christianity must remain a private matter and not a public obligation. That does not mean that Christians should remain silent concerning governing matters concerning the state. To the contrary, Christians need to hold the state accountable to the blessings and constraints of our Judeo Christian heritage. We are not doing the job, and that’s why America is in trouble.

The above is shared because if Muslims have their way our America will be tailored in the clothing of Islamic law and culture. Will Americans fight to preserve their nation? I think not because Christendom has gotten to fat and lazy. Because in America, she is not a persecuted church, yet.

When religion determines the political agenda for a nation, the politicians establishes standards for civil behavior based around religious law. Resulting in a perfect formula for mindless submission to the dictates of politicians. Who are subservient to religious authorities. Take a look at the Muslim world because dozens of examples exist.

Then we see this playing out on the world stage everyday, somewhere. Men, women, boys, and girls willing to blow themselves up for some eternal reward. If that is not mindless submission to an edict from a religious authority, then mindless submissions is non existent.

At the beginning of this posting a question was asked. “What is it about religion that is so captivating?” The answer is quite simplistic. It is the promise of escape from eternal torment and the promise of paradise! Most likely, when a suicide bomber straps to his or her body lethal explosives. That person is motivated by some edict. For Muslims, it comes from the Qur’an. With the edict having been provided by Allah through the prophet Muhammad. Who has inspired modern day Islamic clerics to continue the Islamic cause.The following is one source of inspiration etched into the minds of suicide bombers. “You who believe, shall I show you a bargain that will save you from painful torment? Have faith in God and his Messenger [Muhammad] and struggle for his cause with your possessions and your persons-that is better for you, if you knew-and he will forgive your sins, and admit you into the Gardens graced with flowering streams, into pleasant dwellings in the Garden of Eternity, This is the supreme triumph,” Quar’an 61:11-12. And never forget Muhammad’s, eternal edict, “I was ordered to fight all men until they say, ‘There is no god but Allah.'”

“Might makes Right.” Islam has rendered that paradigm obsolete. The 21 century paradigm is “Right makes Might.” It is owned by the Muslim world. “Right makes Might” because for Muslims “Right is from an ultimate authority, Allah and their prophet Muhammad.

It is why, the United States has not prevailed in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere the U.S. confronts Muslims. And most unfortunately, through out the United States. And the sad news, is that the Muslim remaking of America is just getting started.  The West, and in particular the United States, is at a loss as to how to battle this ever growing stronger Islamic power. Because the West, led by the United States is focused on traditional warfare resolution. Islam can only be defeated from a biblical understanding of prophecy. Then the nation militarily must conduct its warfare from this new paradigm.

Be mindful neighbors here in the states, and around the globe. Islam abhors life and worships death. “… based upon gardens graced with flowering streams…” Do not think this does not apply to Muslims living in the United States. They worship, dress, and think like there Muslim counterparts around the world. They are devoted to the prophet Muhammad, and his god, Allah. Who are sworn to our destruction. So they must be considered just as dangerous. When push comes to shove, who will they side with? Christians, Jews, people who acknowledge another religion, or no religion at all. A religion outside of Islam, is not tolerable to the teaching of the Qur’an. One must conclude then that they would side with our enemies, thus Muslims are our national and international enemy.

With a concentrated focus on Islam. As the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global economic security. In addition, Muslims are responsible for the currant global insurrections and insecurity which will grow like an incurable cancer. Unless the world community, specifically the United States wakes up to save itself from this barbaric menace. Which will be addressed by suggesting various actions that need to take place.The written word can accomplish so much. Travel unencumbered and without exhaustion.
