Resident Evil

obama_toastDecember 2015 and One American is just now declaring the Resident of the White House to be an agent of evil?  A little late you say?  Of course many of us have known for some time that the Resident is not who he claims to be. For me, this realization came a few months after he took office in 2009.  I naively cast my vote for Obama in 2008; my “hope” was that he would reverse the disastrous course we embarked upon under Bush Jr. with a return to Constitutional authority.  My enthusiasm quickly withered.  Not only did Obama fail to reconcile the embarrassments of Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib and Iraq, he continued trampling the Constitution, tightening the grip of the federal government and anointing the executive branch with unprecedented power.  He greatly expanded the surveillance capabilities of the intelligence community, recruiting corporate partners to ensure all our data could be mined and shared.  He oversaw the introduction of enhanced screening procedures by the TSA and the militarization of our local police departments.  While scaling back our military overseas, he has continued a foreign policy centered on regime change, creating more upheaval and bitter animosity towards America.  And then there is the ACA, written by the insurance companies and engineered to squash the middle class.  Shall I continue?  We still have a year of Obama to endure (assuming the 2016 elections go as scheduled and he relinquishes his throne).  I suspect he will attempt to use his last year of residency to totally decimate what is left of the Republic.

His suspicious remarks started early in his brief political career and continued throughout his presidential campaign.  But now in 2015 he simply cannot open his mouth without vomiting on the American people.  Indeed, it is his most recent hurl of treasonous statements that has prompted me to finally formulate this post.  Regarding the legitimate concern over Syrian refugees entering the U.S. following the terrorist attacks in Paris, Obama had this to say during an appearance in the Philippines, “The idea that somehow they pose a more significant threat than all the tourists who pour into the United States every single day just doesn’t jive with reality… So my expectation is after the initial spasm of rhetoric, the people will settle down, take a look at the facts, and we’ll be able to proceed.”

But the facts are clear.  The FBI has admitted the vetting process for refugees is critically flawed.  During a recent House Committee on Homeland Security hearing, FBI director James Comey stated, “We can only query against that which we have collected… so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but… there will be nothing [that] show[s] up because we have no record of that person.”

Obama really thinks the American people are stupid, see?  He thinks you are unaware of the fact that Europe is in crisis as the borders of several nations are overrun with ungrateful and belligerent Muslim “refugees.”  We should ignore the fact that ISIS has specifically said they will exploit the refugee crisis to smuggle their terrorists into Europe and America. This is why we are screwed.  The governments of the West fostered al-Qaeda and ISIS, in the same way they fostered the Mujahideen in Afghanistan during the 1980s to repel the Soviets.  This makes it kinda hard, morally, to turn the flood of refugees away, being that we are primarily responsible for their displacement.  We should welcome these “widows and orphans” with open arms because this policy worked so wonderfully for Sweden and Germany, right?  Most of these widows and orphans are young men, in good health, sporting Aeropostal and Nike who somehow managed to pocket their smartphones and iPods while desperately fleeing ISIS.  Right.  The men have gone off to war; the soon-to-be widows and orphans are back in Syria and Iraq.  And what of the militant cells that are already present within our borders, like the Muslim couple who allegedly killed fourteen people in San Bernadino, California three weeks ago?  What about our unsecured southern border?  Why have an immigration policy at all?  Your concerns are unwarranted.  Shame on you, racist!

Obama is risking alienating all but the most schizoid totalitarians in his liberal base.  The ultimate goal here is not to provide safe haven for desperate refugees, but to incite conflict and unrest.  This insidious plan cannot be easily carried out while the citizens of America continue to possess firearms.  On the heels of the San Bernadino attack, Obama’s long standing goal of disarming the American people is finally taking shape, with his announcement from the Oval Office that your Constitutional right to keep and bear arms will be infringed if your name somehow lands on the the no-fly list.  And what earns you a spot on this list?  Apparently not links to terrorism, but maybe you have expressed your dislike of the Obama regime on Facebook or you operate a Tea Party website or you work for the Department of Homeland Security, who has seventy-two employees on the list, according to a Congressional investigation conducted back in August!  In other words, this list can get really long, really fast without any requirement of due process.

Let me say this- and this may burn some conservatives who read this blog- but Obama is not a Muslim.  It is critical that we all understand this.  I can certainly see how he might be perceived as a Muslim and there are many in the conservative and alternative media who continue to make this claim.  Call it elementary, but the Resident is a strong supporter of abortion, feminism and gay rights.  He eats pork and drinks alcohol.  Muslims condemn all these things.  I suppose I am assuming a degree of fidelity within Islam which is not warranted; after all, Muslims are permitted to lie if it furthers the cause of Islam.  Controlling the most powerful political office on Earth would certainly allow for copious fabrication under Islam.  If he is a Muslim, perhaps he is an operative for the Saudis and his liberal politics are simply a disguise.  Er… maybe.  Muslim leaders around the world can simply look the other way as Barry, in his best ghetto slang demands, “Give me some of them ribs.”

It is true that non-Muslims are not given equal treatment under Islam. There are several verses in the Qu’ran and the Hadiths, which sanction deceit, theft, rape, slavery and killing when perpetrated against non-believers or those who make war with Muslims.  Obama has no reservations about slaughtering innocent Muslims though, whether it be in Pakistan or Yemen or Libya or Iraq.  All we must do is examine the life of Muhammad to understand the questionable way in which Muslims are expected to conduct themselves.  I charge that the ruling class in Islamic societies are hypocrites and criminals anyway, living lives of decadence while their people are kept in a position of servitude. Behind closed doors, they do not adhere to Islam’s prohibitions and regularly partake in prostitution, gambling and drug use.  It would seem that ISIS would align themselves against the corrupt House of Saud, yet, it is Sunni wahhabism cultivated in Saudi Arabia with the cooperation of the West that is responsible for the majority of Islamic terrorism around the world.  ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko-Haram and the Taliban are all militant Sunni groups.

Consider that despite all of Obama’s aid and comfort to the Islamists, they still want to cut his head off and put it on a stake, as CEO of the American infidels.  Although Obama claims to be Christian, his fruits indicate otherwise.  So, if he is not a Muslim and not a Christian, who or what is he?  I surmise that he is godless, which is far more dangerous.  And I am well aware of Barack Hussein Obama’s Islamic upbringing, his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and his comments supporting Muslims, but he is more accurately a Muslim sympathizerHis true allegiance is to the globalist New World Order, who are currently using Islam to destroy the current world order.  This is plain to me.  Although not a practicing Muslim himself, he allies himself with them, protecting and defending them every step of the way.  He deflects criticism against Islam.  He denies the very idea of Islamic terrorism, claiming the actions of militant wahhabists have nothing to do with the “peaceful” religion of Islam.

I am aware that there are many peaceful Muslims; there are many in the United States who fear ISIS and also wish to see our borders closed.  Imagine that.  There is a perception that ISIS and other militant Islamist groups have twisted the message of Islam to justify their violence.  In reality though, the Islamic State promotes fundamentalist Islam.  Murtadd is the Arabic term for an apostate in Islam.  It can apply to Muslims who have rejected Islam or those who refuse to follow the prescriptions of the Islamic faith, such as the requirement of women to wear hijab when in public.  This applies to most “moderate” American Muslims.

To be fair, Islam is not one unified, monolithic religion.  Within Islam there is considerable debate over whether coercion is authorized in the conversion of non-believers.  There is debate amongst Islamic scholars regarding areas of contradiction between the Qu’ran and the Hadiths (sayings of the prophet Muhammad).  Some of the Hadiths are believed to be more authentic than others.  Sunnis and Shiites have made war with each other for centuries over the proper succession of power following the death of Muhammad in 632 A.D.  This is not unlike the debate between various Christian sects regarding apostolic succession, apocryphal texts, baptism, etc.  The difference is that the message of Jesus Christ does not include calls for violence against his enemies.  In fact, the opposite is true:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

[Matthew 5: 43-45]

We must accurately discern the unseen enemy behind the scenes in order to understand the larger agenda.  All of this deception is to the detriment of the Judaeo-Christian nations of the West, including the last stronghold, America.  We must remember, Satan is the Great Deceiver.  His goal is to destroy all mankind.  The New World Order is the world government of Satan.  As we approach the Great Tribulation, Satan infiltrates every tier of human civilization.  Confusion and deception are hallmarks of Satan’s influence.  Our government tells us we are in Syria and Iraq fighting ISIS, but we are actually supporting ISIS and other Islamist rebel groups seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.  At the same time, we condemn Russia and the Syrian government, who are actually fighting ISIS and defending Christians, Jews and groups of minority Muslims.  It is overt propaganda.

The general policy of the United States over the past two decades has been to uproot key Muslim dictators that were once supported by the West and provided an environment of relative stability in those regions. Why the change in foreign policy?  Because, by increasing degrees, the government of the United States has been captured and controlled by globalists.  The globalist agenda supersedes American foreign policy.  It circumvents the Constitution.  It does not acknowledge the rights of the American citizen.  It will use whatever means necessary to set the world ablaze with terror, so that we turn to them for salvation.  In order to get this firestorm going, Saddam Hussein (Iraq), Muammar Gaddafi (Libya) and Hosni Mubarak (Egypt) had to be dealt with. And now the target is squarely on the back of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.  That does not mean these are the good guys, think of it like a great white shark devouring a school of barracuda.  They represent the old, corrupt world order; they are an obstacle to the new, vastly more brutal and demonic New World Order.

So, here is my timeline: 1) NWO wrestles control from the governments of the West, including E.U. and N.A.T.O. alliances (Britain, France, Germany and U.S.) and uses subversive means to create violent uprisings (Arab Spring) across the region.  Despotic leaders are toppled, creating a power vacuum.  In the West, this is portrayed as a democratic revolt, in order to generate sympathy for the Islamists.  Terrorists are called “protesters” and “freedom fighters.” Economic and security concerns draw other world powers (Russia, China, Iran) into the conflict.  2) Hosts of militant Islamic groups battle for control on the ground, each looking to lead a new caliphate.  As the Islamic State spreads and grows more powerful, more Muslim groups line up behind them, because they are seen as the most viable vehicle for conquest against the imperialist powers.  3) As destruction and chaos spread, a refugee crisis develops, which becomes a second front, as it is used to infiltrate the Western nations, undermine their culture and cripple them through terrorism.  Why is it that Saudi Arabia and the wealthy Gulf states (Qatar, U.A.E., Kuwait, Bahrain) have taken on zero refugees?  4) Only when the caliphate has enough muscle will it seek to overthrow the Saudi monarchy and threaten Israel, Europe, Russia and the United States.  Understand, the goal is not a military defeat, the goal is to draw us into a fractured global war, while they continue their campaign of terrorism inside our borders.  This is to weaken us economically, psychologically and spiritually, to the point where we finally give in to globalist domination.  When the New World Order has no more use for Islam, the Muslims will also become targets for elimination.

While it is clearly in the best interest of all to maintain stability in the Middle East, it is not in the best interest of the global elites, who are trying to play the last remaining super powers off each other to their mutual destruction.  Russians, to their credit, seem to understand the larger plot against them.  The entire civilized world should stand in solidarity against the threat of militant Islam, as that would derail the NWO plan to destroy national sovereignty and install their one-world system.  The fact that we are instead seeing implausible alliances, chaos and mayhem, lies and deception, points to the true architect of global domination- Satan himself!  Call him out!

Of course, it would be wrong to place all the blame for our situation on the current Resident.  It is the power of the executive office that is out of balance.  Our representatives spend their time on Capitol Hill turning in symbolic votes that serve merely to define their political image for the next election.  Legislative authority is being snatched up by the executive and judicial branches outside of law.  Obama is an empty shell and whether he acknowledges it or not, a tool of Satan.  How else can you explain the complete lack of integrity and accountability from his administration?  Deceitful, reckless and devoid of leadership, the Resident and his cohort John Kerry were rebuked once again by the Pentagon over the situation in Syria.  Perhaps it is because his semantics are not fooling anyone anymore.  Perhaps we’re not holding the winning deck, folks.

There is a warning here.  Just as we elected Bush Jr. as a reaction to Clinton’s scandalous behavior, and elected Obama as a reaction to Bush’s ineptness and war-mongering, we now stand to elect a potential strongman in Donald Trump as a reaction to Obama’s spineless treason.  The important question is, are we going to continue the trend of trashing our Constitution, by handing over our trust to another egocentric executive?  And it’s not that Trump is wrong on the issues, but we must understand how they use our emotions, our anger, our fear, our guilt, even our sense of charity to bring forth their plans.  All of this is orchestrated.  Who does this describe?  As if the terms Democrat and Republican mean anything anymore.  Obama is only the current Resident, but evil is lurking everywhere.  Put your faith in God first, then we must insist on restoring the integrity of our Constitutional Republic.

This Is A Call (Part Two)

ichabodAs I mentioned in my previous post This Is A Call (Part One), I was baptized in the Catholic Church as a baby and experienced a sorta-Catholic upbringing as a child.  I find it curious that I remember absolutely nothing from my catechism classes, except for being dropped off and picked up.  Was it so traumatic that I blocked it from my memory?

I spent my time as a young adult seeking spiritual enlightenment outside the confines of organized religion.  But, it was my need for confession that called me back to the Catholic Church thirty years later.  By this time, I had inflicted a great deal of emotional and psychological harm to myself and those I loved.  My marriage and my life were crumbling without Jesus.  Breaking down and confessing my sins was a helpful experience, if not a transformative one.

I met monthly with a Jesuit priest for about a year.  His laid-back personality was unexpected, as was his use of the word “bullshit,” as was his personal library, which I recall included a book about Islam and a DVD of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which he happily lent to my seven-year-old daughter.  Amusing.  None of this sounded an alarm for me.  To the contrary, it made me feel like this whole Catholic thing didn’t have to be so serious.  Here was a Catholic priest no less, who seemed to be an open-minded, regular guy.  I have since learned more about the Society of Jesus and after reading a column this priest wrote recently for the local paper regarding climate change, I view my experience with him in a new light.  I still had my reservations about the Catholic Church and was holding back my complete faith and devotion from God.

My family and I moved to a new town and sampled the local Catholic Church.  The priest was a sincere and gentle Polish man.  He spoke in a meek voice and struggled with his English.  The mass service was very passive.  Having confessed my sins, I was eligible to again receive the sacrament of the Eucharist, which I did.  I was warming up.  I also sought counsel from this priest and, to his credit, he reminded me that all things were possible through Jesus Christ and urged me to pray, in order that my small faith might grow.  He pointed out that a great many saints and even the apostles of Christ lacked faith.

I found myself listening to a variety of radio programs on EWTN, including Catholic Answers Live, which re-familiarized me with the basic tenets of Christianity and Church tradition.  I learned about writer G.K. Chesterton (a Catholic convert) through The Apostle of Common Sense.  I would get excited when I would catch the Fathers of Mercy Hour while running errands in the car.  My mind and spirit was being fed through the impassioned talks about family, marriage, sin, mercy- whatever the topic might be. Essentially, my return to God was supported to a large degree by the Catholic Church.

But as I hungered for more understanding, I was led to a circle of “watchmen” composed of pastors, writers and journalists who were often critical of the Catholic Church, citing non-Biblical practices and their objection to papal authority.  I very quickly found myself in a conflict of faith.  Catholics will insist that the Catholic Church is the original Church founded by Jesus Christ, with Peter serving as first Pope.  Jesus implores us several times in the Gospels to not be deceived.  I had to ask myself, was it the Catholic message I was responding to, or the message of Jesus Christ?  If indeed it was the Holy Spirit guiding me and calling me back, it would make sense that He use the most immediate, effective path to accomplish this.  If we accept that God exists beyond the physical boundaries of time and space and is all-knowing, He can certainly chart that path for us.  For one person that journey might begin with a car accident, for another, a visit from a Mormon missionary, for another, a documentary about Noah.  For me, the Catholic Church was already there.

We mistakenly understand “church” to mean a building where Christians of a particular denomination congregate on Sunday to worship God.  So, Jews call their building a synagogue, Mormons call their building a temple, Muslims call their building a mosque, Jehovah’s Witnesses call their building a kingdom hall, and so on.  What does Jesus mean though, when He talks about His Church? The Greek word ecclesia, often mis-translated as “church” in the New Testament, literally means “congregation” or “assembly.”

And I did consider other churches. I even spoke with an Episcopalian priest, a recovering alcoholic who jokingly described the Episcopal Church as “Catholic Church without the guilt.”  But… I was guilty.  I wondered how one’s guilt could be ignored, when the fundamental requirement for forgiveness and everlasting life- repentance- comes from an admission of guilt?  And what is guilt but an understanding of wrongdoing, which arises from our God-given conscience?  Would I have been better off wandering into a Baptist or Presbyterian church on a whim, asking to be saved?  Why not just go with what I sorta know?  I had to trust that God would meet me where I was at, and take me to where I needed to be.

In the same way that YHWH saw Israel, not as a particular strip of land along the Mediterranean, but as His chosen people, Jesus regards His Church as His people.  The modern nation of Israel is therefore not synonymous with the chosen people and those that show up to worship at 10 a.m. Sunday morning are not necessarily Christ’s people.  Now, maybe my logic isn’t air-tight here, but it seems ridiculous to me that God would consider our particular denomination, or whether we were Catholic or Protestant, or whether we showed up every Sunday, at the time of our judgement.  At that time, God examines the condition of our hearts, whether we were repentant and accepted the gift of salvation from His Son, Jesus and kept His commandments to the best of our ability.

“The one who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father.  I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him…

… If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.”

[John 14: 21, 23]

In addition to calling non-believers, God is calling His faithful servants out of the churches because they preach a compromised Gospel.  To one degree or another, most churches have embraced the wisdom of the world in an effort to be more tolerant and open.  Both Catholic and Protestant churches have become infiltrated and impotent.  For the most part, pastors, priests and parishioners alike are mindlessly going through the motions when they participate in church service, but how many truly love God?  We are called upon to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind [Matthew 22:37].  As Christians, we are not to assimilate with the world and blend in, we stand apart as witnesses for Christ.  Dare I say, most Christian congregations are not in alignment with Christ, and that is tragic.  Where the Word is not preached and practiced, the glory of God is not present- ichabod.

enochI understand the Protestant doctrine of sola scriptura, which holds that the only legitimate source of truth can be the Holy Scriptures, but is everything except the Bible beyond consideration?  And I’m not talking about Little Red Riding Hood here, but what about the Book of Enoch, which is mentioned in the Bible [Jude 1:14-15]?  Excerpts from the Book of Enoch were discovered as part of the Dead Sea Scrolls.  The Catholic Church rejects the doctrine of sola scriptura; they contend that there are many Church traditions which date back to the time of Jesus, or the first few centuries after his death and resurrection, which are not specifically outlined in the Bible, so they also rely on the writings of the early Church fathers, etc.  I tend to agree.  For Christians, knowledge of the Bible should absolutely be central to the practice of our faith, but it cannot be the sole source of wisdom.  I have come to believe that God and His principles can be observed in all of Creation, even if not specifically referenced in the Bible, but we must be careful to check our understanding against the Scriptures to ensure there is no contradiction.  Indeed, there are potentially thousands of works of literature or art or music which extol the wisdom of our Lord, and yes, we can wonder in His Creation by spending a day fishing on the lake, but Satan is always attempting to cloud our perception and direct us away from Truth.  That is why we need discernment, to protect us from diluting the Word with secular ideology and polluting the Word with witchcraft, astrology, idolatry and the false religion of the fallen ones.  Discernment is a gift of the Holy Spirit and we can pray for it.

Because the shepherds of the Lord have not been vigilant, the flock has been led astray. Whole denominations have adopted practices that are not only non-Biblical, but are non-Christian.  “Mega-church” is an oxymoron.  The only way to attract hordes of well-wishers to your church building or sell millions of self-help books is to dilute and pollute, preaching a false, new-age gospel which does not call on its adherents to repent of their sins, does not teach about the Blood and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and does not speak of the prophets and Revelation.  Pay attention to the titles of some best-selling books by mega-pastor Joel Osteen: You Can, You Will, The Power of I AM, etc.  Now certainly the Lord wishes for our lives to be enriching, but through Him.  Joel Osteen would like you to believe that if we invoke the name of God, we can attract power and wealth to us.  This is nothing more than witchcraft.  The Lord is not our servant, sent to fetch whatever our heart desires.  We do not pray for material things and worldly influence.  Christians pray for the discernment to recognize where Jesus is directing us.  We are His servants.  The masses flee when they hear the real message of Jesus Christ.  Jesus is not a motivational speaker; His message is not a self-help message, it’s a message of abandoning the self and turning to God.

The prophets spoke of a day when the world would embrace a one-world religion and one-world government, one in which all teachings have value and morality is relative; that monstrosity will be headed up by the Antichrist.  Christians are being primed for this day.  The global governance of the Evil One will seem like an attractive solution to the chaos and destruction set to be loosed on the Earth.  All that God created is being desecrated and Christians are being pressured into accepting it, including sexual perversion of all kinds, idolatry, blasphemy and the corruption and destruction of life.

Jesus never said all paths lead to God, he said the way to eternal life is narrow [Matthew 7:14].  Pope Francis however has boldly proclaimed that Muslims worship the same God as Christians.  How is this possible when Muslims reject the divinity of Jesus Christ?  I was shocked to hear this.  I was shocked to learn also that Muslims were invited to conduct Islamic prayer services inside the Vatican and that the Qur’an is openly being read there.  Excuse me?  In addition, according to Pope Francis, Jesus’ death on the cross was a failure.  Talk about shocking.  Now I understand he means in the earthly realm, in other words, Jesus failed to convince all whom he encountered that he was the Messiah.  But was that the purpose of Jesus being sent to Earth?  No.  Did not God the Father already know that humanity would reject His Son?  Yes.  He was not sent to persuade all to follow Him, He was sent to die for our sins.  It was the apostles who were instructed to spread the Gospel throughout the known world.  This is fundamentally Christian and fundamentally Catholic.  So why is the Pope suggesting that Christ failed in any capacity?  Apparently Christ also failed by excluding extra-terrestrials from salvation when he died for the sins of man- the descendants of Adam and Eve.  Pope Francis said that the Catholic Church would baptize Martians if they ever visited the Vatican, “Who are we to close doors?”  These sorts of statements represent a severe lack of understanding regarding the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and that is frightening for a man of such power and influence.

poprahIs the Pope evil, as in purposefully malicious and deceitful?  I do not think so.  But, he is incredibly gullible and instead of trusting in the Word, he has lent his ear to his cabal of advisers, all of whom are focused on specific political agendas which have nothing, it seems, to do with Jesus Christ.  So, perhaps the Pope himself is not evil, but he is certainly being used by those with evil intentions.  Does the Pope scour the internet at 2 a.m. doing his own research?  No.  Does the Pope study global climate patterns?  No.  Does the Pope study the links between certain vaccines and auto-immune disorders?  No.  Does the Pope even comprehend that “aliens” are demonic in nature, and have not traveled here from distant planets but have been alongside us all along?  Nope.  He consults with his experts, who have been culled from Marxist, atheist and environmentalist circles.  They offer up discussions on current events, popular trends, scientific consensus- the prevailing wisdom of the world- that which is causal and temporary and falling away.  If the Pope really is the vicar of Christ, shouldn’t I expect him to sound a little more like Jesus and a little less like Oprah Winfrey or Deepak Chopra?

We should not be shocked because this has all been forecast.  Last month, the Pope visited the United States and before speaking at the UN, met with the Resident of the White House and spoke before a joint session of Congress and the Supreme Court, not to condemn the recent redefinition of marriage or the seventy-million aborted children since the Roe v. Wade decision, or our nation’s rampant perversion and wickedness, but rather, to push for the UN’s Agenda 2030, which aims to build the platform upon which the Antichrist’s global government will be hoisted.  The deception is multifaceted and orchestrated.  Who can argue with such noble goals as saving the planet from environmental destruction, ending war, poverty, famine and unfairness in every form?  We have lost sight of the fact that only the Lord is capable of just rulership.  Human societies will always be flawed, because human beings are flawed.  The United States, with our Constitution and Bill of Rights may be the closest any human civilization has come to creating a equitable society, but it does not approach the perfection of God’s Kingdom.  The promise of utopia is a lie, as is the idea that salvation will come from our space brothers and their technology.

My need to define myself as a Catholic or Protestant ends in Jesus Christ.  We don’t go to church, we are the Church, assuming we are in alignment with Christ.  God is calling His faithful servants out of the church buildings and into His army, those who reject the wisdom of the world and stand, washed in the Blood of Jesus, to defend the faith.  This is the remnant.  I’m not suggesting people stop attending church services, I am suggesting we start inviting Jesus Christ to attend as well.  There are many who will prefer to sit in their pew, surrounded by those who compliment them on their charity and holiness, allowing gentle messages of comfort and joy to wash over them, drowning out their calling, their mission and their duty as Christians.  These apostate Christians will spearhead the persecution of the remnant Church, by characterizing true followers of Jesus Christ as radical fundies.  When Christianity falls under persecution in America, like in China, the Middle East and other parts of the world (Sweden!  Germany!  France!  Britain!), the Church will go underground.  Christ’s people will continue their worship in small groups in the relative safety of their homes.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

[Matthew 18:20]

Do not be afraid to take your questioning to the Lord as I have done.  The God of the Old Testament is unfairly characterized as a God of wrath and vengeance.  And while YHWH has certainly administered punishment over the millennia, to know Him is to understand His abundant patience and mercy, His perfect justice and His infinite love.  From the Creator’s point of view, He desires His creation to rejoice in Him.  He desires to share His joy with mankind.  He wants us, through our own choosing, to demonstrate our gratitude by worshiping only Him.  We worship by faithfully following His commandments and honoring our covenants with Him.  It is only after the entire seed of mankind was corrupted that God brought forth the Great Flood to destroy all life, spare Noah and his family and a genetic record of all the beasts of the Earth.  Only after repeated pleas for men to turn from their evil ways and rejoin their Creator, does He rain down destruction.  All of Creation rests, not merely on principles of physics, but on the virtues of liberty and righteousness.  This idea is set forth in the very first chapter of Genesis when God says, “Let there be light” [Genesis 1:3].  Because in order for light to exist there first had to be darkness.  It follows that in order for there to be good, there must be evil.  To be alive is to exist in harmony with the Creator, to acquire everlasting life is to join with the Creator, into the light.  To be dead is to exist in opposition to the Creator, to inherit eternal death is to be severed from the Creator and cast into the void.

For a man there can be no greater calling than to be the spiritual head of his family, a faithful husband and loving father.  Now I hear God speak to me.  I feel the Holy Spirit move in me.  It is no mistake, or accident, or coincidence, or delusion… and it all began with a sincere prayer to know Truth.  You can know Him too.
