wizards at work

It is good to be a observer of current events. Done by paying attention to the wizards of knowledge from academia to the palaces of journalism. To the barristers, and solicitors of legalism, to legislative bodies, to presidents and prime ministers and all other judges of opinion.

As they pontificate on how to resolve the Jewish/Arab Muslim stand off concerning a two state solution. Thinking that if they could resolve that issue there would be peace through out the Arab/Muslim world and Israel. Wrong!

World legislative bodies and the other pontificator’s are running out of forbearance. With rumblings being heard that the standoff can only be resolved by force. Move against Israel and force a two state solution upon the parties.

That seems to have validity which comes from one of God’s future tellers. His name, Zechariah, whose declarations are preserved for all wizards of knowledge for their benefit.

Speaking for the All Mighty, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all surrounding people, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut to pieces though all nations of earth are gathered against it. In that day says the LORD, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness,” Zechariah 12:2-4a.

Wizardly failed! The best minds with global collaboration couldn’t bring about a two state solution for the Israeli, Arab/Muslim tumultuous failures. Most have heard it said, “Mother knows best.” In this instance it is said, God knows best. Because He preordained that the disputed lands would forever belong to the Jews.

The conversation for world reorganization between Jacob and Joseph started yesterday will continue tomorrow.

Another yesterday, replaying itself out through a numbed global community. Because the frequency is the same, only the players and locations change.

Unfortunately, London has a Muslim mayor. Mayor Sadiq Khan, responding to the events that saw madman, Khalid Masood, do what Muslims do best which is to injure and kill.

It’s their centuries of history. It’s not going to change in our twenty first century. It’s only going to intensify making mockery of politicians who say, as did Mayor Sadiq Khan, “I’m not going to allow terrorists to divide London, and destroy our way of life. We haven’t in the past, we are not currently, or in the future.” Source: the blaze.com.

It’s not about any of that stuff. Muslim jihadists only care about conquering the world for Allah and his prophet Muhammad. Until the world understands that and works to close Muslim mosques which are nothing more than military fortresses for jihadists. Where trained jihadists are given encouragement and sanctuary until its time to attack. The mayhem will continue and grow.

It doesn’t have to be that way. The populace must embrace and return the world to Christ honoring societies. Meaning the community of nations will have to deal harshly with the devils who live among, their Muslim population. In the not so far past it would have been impossible for a Muslim to ascend to the office of Mayor in London. Because the cross purposes of Islam and the nations Judeo-Christian of London were not compatible.

This is Mayor Sadiq Khan reality for London and Great Britain. London and the country has in the past, and will live into the future with a threat of severe. explaining, “that an attack is highly likely.” Source:the blaze.com.

In light of the Westminster fiasco, Mayor Sadiq Khan issued the following statement. “The threat of terror attacks are, ‘part and parcel of living in a big city.'” Concluding by encouraging Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers. Source:the blaze.com.

Causing Trump Jr. to tweet, “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in a big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.” Source:the blaze.com.

Causing, CNN reporter, Christiane Amanpour to refer Trump Jr’ tweet as a “sort of knee-jerk reaction.” Source:the blaze.com. It’s what to expect from news outlets like CNN. The likes of CNN don’t have the slightest clue of the dangers the Judeo-Christian world faces from Islam. They know little about the biblical roots of Islam. Nor do they know the biblical roots of Great Britain. The two societies are polar opposites and will never live in harmony. The attack on the city of Westminister represented not only an attack upon democracy but upon God Almighty himself. Because, Great Britain has a biblical rooting. Destined to be something other than what Great Britain is today. All behaviors have consequences, and Great Britain has, and is experiencing those consequences.

Know your Bible, so you can know your world. And then, act to save it. Through the angelic great commission reiterated by Jesus himself. See Revelation 14:6; Matthew 28:19-20.

Really didn’t you feel so bad because killing him felt so good

Dr. Hannibal Lecter writing to F.B.I. agent, Will Graham, “… Graham, you worry to much. You would be so much more comfortable with yourself, if you relaxed with yourself. We do not invent our natures, Will; they are issued to us along with our lungs, pancreas, and everything else, Why fight it? … when you were so depressed after you shot Mr. Garrett Jacob Hobbs to death. It was not the act that got you down, was it? Really didn’t you feel so bad because killing him felt so good? Think about it, but do not worry about it. Why shouldn’t you feel good? It must feel good to God… He does it all the time, and we are made in his image. You may have noticed in the paper yesterday, God dropped a roof on thirty four of His worshipers…. Don’t you think that felt good? Thirty four… He let you have Hobbs. He got 160 Filipinos in one plane crash last week. He’ll let you have measly Hobbs. He won’t grudge you one measly killing. Two now.” (Source: Red Dragon, Thomas Harris, Dell, 1981, 2000, p.p. 348,9).

Although a work of fiction, Dr.Lecter’s analysis of an unsympathetic God to the misfortunes of others is an opinion shared by many.

Stuck in my mind is an experience I had with a single mother. She had fought a long battle with cancer. She feared her death because she was to leave behind two young sons. This mother just wanted to know. If God is merciful, and just, why was he letting her die a slow death? Ultimately leaving to a cruel and mercy less world her two children? An unsettling question which this padre struggled with for years. My theological training did not prepare me to give her the answer. She desperately asked every time I visited her. Decades later, I secured the answer, to late for her. But not for the many others, who seek the same answers. Part of the answer is within this discussion while another from the previous discussion.

Most have heard it said that the more things change the more they stay the same. Because as it was in the days of old, so it is today. People want a kingdom, but without God in it. The prophet Samuel installed Saul as King over the Israelites because that is what they wanted. It is recorded, “You have this day rejected your God. Who has himself spared you difficulties and rescued you from your adversaries. For this, what respect was shown to God? None! For the people said to God, Give us a king to govern us, 1 Samuel 10:19.

God has granted humanities wishes to be free of his governance. As God scolded, Adam and Eve over the choice they made. So he scolds humanity to this very day. It is recorded, “It shall come to pass, if you will not obey the voice of the LORD your God. Observing all his commandments and statutes. The following perpetual curses you will experience, Deuteronomy 28:15. (Emphasis added through out). In the city you will be cursed. Do not blame God when airplanes crash into your buildings killing whom you think are innocent. Your agriculture will be cursed with contamination. Do not blame God when the presumed innocent are poisoned and some die, verse 16. Religious practices foreign to God’s word, will be cursed, verse 17. Jesus said, many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ; and shall deceive many, Matthew 24:5. Jesus is the totality of the Bible, Revelation 19:13, which includes all the scripture verses cited in this discussion. Cursed will be what is most precious to you; your children. Along with your orchards and livestock, verse 18. Humanity has made its bed and must now sleep in it, verse 19. Humanity can expect to experience more of God’s curses. Designed to create difficulties as a method of rebuking humanity. No matter how noble or great the effort. Even if it means destruction which is the result of humanities wickedness. Because all of us, in our individual ways have forsaken our creator, the LORD GOD Almighty, verse 20.

That has been humanities story since the dawn of time. Dating back to Adam and Eve. They chose to be like God. Instead of being in subjection to him, Genesis 3:5,22. Humanities struggles and adverse experience were ushered in as of Genesis 3:23.

The consequences have been severe for our species. Leaving many like Dr Lecter and my single mom to judge God instead of themselves. All such consequences have a purpose which is as follows. “For in the day of prosperity be joyous. But in the day of adversity consider: God also has set the one over against the other, to the end that humanity should find nothing after him, Ecclesiastes 9:14.

It is a hard lesson for humanity to learn. There is nothing after God. But to experience the vestures of his clothing dipped in blood which is his life, death and resurrection, Revelation 19:13. Then by the mercy of God, for those who are wise, “Seek the LORD, all you who are the meek of the earth. Who have kept his laws, and have sought righteousness through your meekness. For you will not be forgotten in the day of the LORD’S anger,” Zephaniah 2:3. For Jesus promised, “But first seek the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you,” Matthew 6:33. “Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for the things of itself. Sufficient unto this day is its own evil,” verse 34.

Just as Dr. Lecter touch upon the often unspoken psyche gratification of pleasures forbidden and then bring psychological confusion. It occurs because badness feels so good which is the result of lives lived between two worlds. Get the answers you want through private consultations.

The LORD bless and keep and keep you safe. 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.

Ticky Tacky products of our environment

To what degree does the environmental surroundings of government and religion influence how people think and thus act? For the United States, think in terms of our Judea-Christian heritage. It’s a question that should be asked by all Americans.

With a mind set as being “American.” Comes a carefully engineered program which purposefully conditions us to accept some well scripted paradigms. With a paradigm being defined as our values and ethics. Those predetermined values of ethics that determines how we react to our surroundings. It all starts at our birth. Continues through primary, middle and high school. Even extending the process through ones university life. Where most come out as Ticky Tacky creatures pretty much duplicating one another in lifestyles. Resulting with most being boxed in by predetermined cultural behaviors. Becoming our system of values which in return shape our ethics as how right and wrong is determined. That seems to be the way the Showtime producers of Weeds captured the American scene.

Do we really only amount to Ticky Tacky products of our environment? Unable to think and react beyond predetermined boxes? Unfortunately, for most, the answer is an astounding yes!

Just consider the subject of religion from the CIA’s Factbook, 2014 which list the Christian religion as the largest religion in the country. Nearly 80 percent of Americans are considered to be Christians. If we could roll back time to birth. Gather up that nearly 80 % of the Christian population. And without their parents, scatter them abroad to countries mostly Muslim. What percent of that 80% would end up as Christians as adults? Such a question is impossible to answer. But it is reasonable, to suspect that most would not as adults name Christianity as their religion. Suggesting that the Showtime producers of Weeds hit the nail squarely the head. Most really are “Ticky Tacky” creations crafted to fit nicely into pretty “Ticky Tacky” boxes. That all look the same and upon emergence from those “Ticky Tacky” boxes act the same.

Such a prospect is a disgrace to the Church of Jesus Christ. As Christians, we should not allow any political system to put us in boxes. From which we emerge, as a collective people declaring the American empire to be a democracy. Governed by a legal system based around Judea-Christians ethics. Giving many a cozy feeling that the nation is a Christian nation. Because its governing principals emanate from a perspective often defined as the nations Judea-Christian heritage.

In the purest sense Christians should see the world as a community without geographic borders. A huge land mass as God’s creation. With a responsibility to see the world as a whole. Perhaps the most familiar scripture in the Bible sets the worlds boundaries. “For God so loved the “world,” that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life, John 3:16. Followed by John 4:42, “… know that this is indeed the Christ the Savior of the “world.” To John 6:33, “For the bread of God, is he who came down from heaven, and gives life to the world.” With Jesus declaring, “I am the bread of life,” John 6:48.

Often I think of Jesus as an illustrative artist, using objects to teach a lesson. This time using bread as the source of life. A food harvested from his earth for physical nourishment as well as the spiritual nutrition necessary for life. Ultimately climaxing with this glorious conclusion, “They sang a new song saying, You are worthy to take the scroll, and open the seals; for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and have made unto us a kingdom of priest and we shall reign on the earth,” Revelation 5:9-10.

It is note worthy that God sees the world without boundaries where his work takes place. Also in Revelation five, the redeemed are seen as a governing body without boundaries. From a scriptural perspective, a vast divide exist. God sees the world and his redeemed see the world as a whole. While people outside of God’s umbrella compartmentalize land masses into nation states. They do this for self preservation purposes. Under God there is no need for nation states.

As noted in Revelation five where the redeemed shall reign as a whole under Jesus Christ. Seems like, we should work for such a world today. It’ll have to be a mental exercise, a beautiful one at that, for now. Because the great devils of the world won’t allow it because they govern under Satan the god of compartmentalization of ticky tackyness.

How great is this division between God and the nation states that cover his creation? Note the following, “The world can not hate you; but it does hate me, because I testify against it, because its works are evil,” John 7:7.

With that in mind, it will not be the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations that will have the final determination of how Ticky Tacky people are conditioned. It’ll be the waring struggle between Judaism, Christianity and Islam that will have final Ticky Tacky say. God have mercy upon us! Come quickly in the triune personage of Jesus Christ, 1 John 5:7.
