Instead, this year the lead up to Christmas, on which most small businesses depend for their very lives, we had a pathetic increase of temporary holiday jobs of 120k, (which are gone now, along with hundreds of retail establishments), idiots mangling and fighting over the ugliest shoes known to man, the outright theft of billions from private accounts, a Christmas present of the NDAA, a declaration of war on the world INCLUDING AMERICANS & an end to our rights altogether, an increase in nazi homeland security & 9500 inland checkpoints, a call for implementation of 800 concentration camps all over the country, sales of homes over-accounted by half, and psychopathic maniacs in power provoking global nuclear war.
After the most miserable Christmas on record, with over half of Americans living below the poverty level and even Salvation Army kettles dried up, the ‘will’ of the people drummed up by the media is bad, only bad, all bad, against American citizens.
Killing the Spirit of Christmas is truly the last straw for this country. If there isn’t even enough good will remaining to feed our hungry brethren, then there is no possibility of peace on earth, a gift given ONLY to men of good will.
And this is EXACTLY what we have to look forward to in 2012, war on earth and men, ALL men, of bad will.
Iowa wants to throw itself out because the people want to vote for Ron Paul.
Imagine if that were ANY other candidate! Put some other name in there and see- If Gingrich wins Iowa, we’ll just throw it out!!!!!
The parties are making themselves CLEAR.
THEY DO NOT REPRESENT THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
In fact, I would go so far as to say that the parties have substituted THEMSELVES for the people in our Bill of Rights and Constitution, and where it says ‘We the People’ THEY read ‘We the Parties.’
Not only is this evident in their horrendous treatment of a very popular statesman among Americans, but it is evident in their incredible drive to REMOVE our Bill of Rights and our Constitutional Rights from the people, while holding themselves and their corrupt politicians above the law themselves.
At this point, only the most obtuse haven’t noticed how dangerous this is. It is totally guaranteed, thanks to previous administrations and their selling out our technology and manufacturing to our current enemies, that war will no longer escape our own shores, and we will all suffer from the effects of an incredible wave of our own bad will.
There is no longer ANY excuse. Absolutely every American KNOWS something is WRONG. They KNOW our politicians are corrupt, even that is bragged about on lamestream media. They KNOW the truth. Even if we lose the internet to SOPA, where they wipe the truth away and leave the rest for their own purposes, the truth has gotten out and there is no longer any excuse but one: ‘the love of truth is not in them.’
America has said to God, from whom our unalienable rights come: “Who gave you the right to occupy America? Nobody.”
2012 will begin to tell the price of that bad will.
From an unexpected source we get an incredibly astute observation about the accuracy and intelligence in MSM’s reporting of A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G noteworthy:
“It’s so far off it’s not even wrong. One is left paralyzed facing the sheer Himalayas of ignorance that lie behind such a concatenation of words…. leaves one numb and helpless for words. It’s like watching that same sophomore burst into a chat room discussion on relativity among trained physicists to say, “If you’re so smart, then tell me how light can be a particle and a wave at the same time. Huh? Huh? Why don’t you learn some real science? When are you going to admit you are just borrowing the best parts of what Gene Roddenberry told us long ago!”
We’ve watched their idiocy and games with Ron Paul, a lesser ‘star’ perhaps, but all the same- brilliant, loyal, consistent, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and a truth speaker.
Both Ron Paul and Pope Benedict XVI are men of integrity, understand what genuine authority and responsibility mean, both appreciate and protect important heritages. They are both men of deep-seated wisdom and COURAGE facing some incredible dangers to humanity with wisdom, respect and compassion: The Pope stands before Islam shining out the light of Christ, of intellect and reason, of human rights, of cooperation, of love. Ron Paul stands before impending Fascism shining out the light of the Constitution, of Liberty, of Freedom, honest and sound money, of the RIGHT to LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. These are the TWO GREATEST CHALLENGES OF OUR TIMES. Both men advocate for the dignity and worth of humanity. The young love them both DEARLY.
In both men some profoundly important issues of our times and days are being confronted with wisdom and experience. We have yet to understand the magnitude of what they are doing and its meaning for the entire planet. Both men are ignored, maligned, misunderstood, mischaracterized, flamed, abused and put down by the mainstream media. So much so that those who appreciate these men are often digging for the aspirin! There is, of course, that pit stuck in the stomach, that nagging feeling, that tells us ‘maybe it isn’t just ignorance, but malice for every last one of us human beings.’
Rev 11:9-11 For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.”
God bless both Ron Paul and Pope Benedict XVI. Truth WILL out.
So the Pope is coming to America, and McCain hopes to turn this into a big ‘turnaround’ for his candidacy with Catholics. Catholics have been leaving the GOP in droves, and no wonder.
The pathetic thing is that there isn’t anywhere else to go, so they’ve been settling for the Democratic party.
Whether you like him or not, at least Pope Benedict XVI will be holding McCain’s feet to the fire- if you want Catholic support, you must have fidelity to some conservative principles, a thing that NO candidate has except Ron Paul. This Holy Father has the guts to face Islam, you’ll be nothing, McCain!
Tell us, McCain, about your commitment to the Just War Doctrine.
Its a very simple set of 7 CRITICAL points.
Tell us about your commitment to LIFE. That’s very simple too, expecially since the Democrats are for even infanticide and forced abortions by government, as in China. Population control is their mantra, though there isn’t any justifiable proof that the planet, run justly, couldn’t support every human being alive today.
Tell us about why you think 100 years of war is acceptable in ANY way. Tell us why we should forego the Bill of Rights and the Constitution because we’re told to be afraid of third world guerillas!
Most importantly, tell us why we should EVER vote for ANYONE that believes that pre-emptive first strike nuclear war is justifiable and ‘on the table.’
Not going to happen, unless there is a BIG conversion on your part, but your bosses won’t buy it. Neither would we, to be honest.
The truth is that no Catholic and, indeed, no Christian, can justifiably vote for the roster of candidates that are running now, excepting Ron Paul.
The idea that party loyalty is more important than our souls is preposterous. The idea that party loyalty is more important than our Constitutional rights is ridiculous.
Time to wake up and smell the coffee, GOP. Your party is just about finished, and good riddance to bad rubbish.
Mother Theresa said ‘The fruit of abortion is nuclear war.’ I have repeated this many times here and in other places relating to this illegal and unjust war.
Those in the Pro-Life movement KNOW this by HEART.
Yet, despite the clear evidence that our country is prepared to launch ANOTHER illegal war, against the Just War Doctrine, and a NUCLEAR ONE at that, the pro-life movement is prepared to vote for one of the most heinous republicans in the party, John McCain.
Father Pavone, of Priests for Life, has come out ENDORSING John McCain for President. Supporting McCain is supporting Planned Parenthood and always has been, no matter what lies come from his forked tongue. Planned Parenthood is LAUGHING all the way to their altars of human sacrifice.
That is like saying, “I despise the roots, but WOW- the FRUIT is awesome! I ENDORSE THIS TREE!”
Pope Benedict, in response to our death-dealing times, points us to our traditions and brings us to Jesus.
At the Eighth Station who, in Luke:23:27- 30 PROMISED to avenge abortion: “there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me but for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck! Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’; and to the hills, ‘cover us.'”
Since our war is a violation of EVERY SINGLE TENET OF THE JUST WAR DOCTRINE, and a vote for ANY of these three candidates (McCain, Clinton or Obama) is clearly a vote for social injustice, then a vote or endorsement for any of these people is a MORTAL SIN.
Fr Pavone isn’t the only one. All over the country, priests and ministers in every Christian denomination are FOR THE WAR.
Pro-life conservatives everywhere are resignedly voting for McCain in spite of all REASON to the contrary, and despite a viable and genuine conservative candidate that has proven himself for over thirty years.
As if McCain were the ONLY choice. WHO HAVE THEY SOLD OUT TO? Why IDOLIZE the parties when LIVES ARE AT STAKE?
Why? They have bought into the global deception of the puppet media and their bosses.
Does ANYONE entertain the idea that Ron Paul would appoint non-constitutional judges to the bench?
I hope and pray their eyes are opened. We are sowing what we are reaping, and it is horrible fruit.
There is actually quite a lot in Scripture about the Mark of the Beast. These are quoted from the NKJV.
Rev. 13: 16ff He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. Rev. 14: 8ff And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” 9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Rev 20: 4ff And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
In Romans 13 the Apostle Paul tells us to ‘put on Christ’ 13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Since the earliest Church, Christians have ‘put on Christ’ in the form of a sign, as signs are extremely important in salvation history, not only for the Israelites that came before, but also for Jesus and His apostles.
The sign that ‘puts on Christ’ has been making the sign of the cross, and in both branches of the ancient Church, and in all the branches from there, Christians make the sign of the cross with their right hand, from the forehead, to the solar plexus, then shoulder to shoulder. This is the sign they use to begin and end prayer, by ‘putting on Christ’ they are accessing His power to save, His relationship with God, His intercession that was obtained for us by His sacrifice on the cross.
The mark of the beast is either on the forehead or hand, which subsumes the sign of the cross to the sign of the anti-christ. With that chip implanted in the hand, it is a defiled hand that rejects the cross making that sign. With that chip implanted in the forehead, it would be the FIRST thing touched when making the sign of the cross, subsuming the sacrifice to the anti-christ.
Amazing how that works. Just notice how badly God takes it.
Now we have Russia declaring ‘Europe could go ablaze‘ because Balkanization is occurring ONE MORE TIME. Both WWI and WWII began in the Balkans, and the American/Global Military Industrial Complex has recklessly decided to support the separation and independence of Kosovo, something nearly guaranteed to bring us into WWIII (to the great profit of a very few.)
This was prophesied by a monk in the 1700’s. Its a terrifying prophecy, seemingly to reach greater and greater fulfillment through each world war.
It reminds me of another recent prophecy: On October 13, 1973 “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on ALL humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.” This was from the Virgin Mary, to a woman in Japan. (Akita)
The information from the Orthodox Church about St. Cosmos is as follows:
“Saint Cosmas of the orthodox church was born in 1714,in a village called Megadentro in Aitolia Greece.In 1743 he went to the holy mountain and attended the Athonias school and he was initiated to the cause for the liberation of Greece by the great teacher Eygenios Voulgaris.He became a monk at 1759 and he left the holy mountain at 1760.He toured Greece which was at the time under Turkish occupation,and he preached the word of God to his fellow Greeks who were under slavery.He was executed by the turks and albanian’s accused of trying to cause a revolt against the Turks in 24 of august 1779.God gave him the power of prophecy.He predicted the liberation of Greece,and all his prophecies came true.Once Ali pasa asked him will i go to Istanbul to the Sultan,and he replied yes but with a red beard,which came true after a few years,when Ali pasa was beheaded and his head sent to the sultan in a basket with red beard in his blood.He predicted the decomposition of Ausro-Hungary in ww1.In this prophecies the saint tell’s us about the WW3 which will start either from Dalmacia or Iraq/Iran.Turkey will invade Greece,Russia will strike turkey,and NATO Forces will come to join the fight,a war that will cause the destruction of Turkey,and some Balkan countries as well.”
A Fourth Century Saint, St. Ephrem, prophesied this about the Antichrist:
Here is the text of the video information:
Dearly beloved brothers, believe the Holy Spirit who speaks in us. We have already told you that the end of the world is near, the consummation remains. Has not faith withered away among mankind? How many foolish things are seen among youths, how many crimes among prelates, how many lies among priests, how many perjuries among deacons! There are evil deeds among the ministers, adulteries in the aged, wantonness in the youths-in mature women false faces, in virgins dangerous traces! In the midst of all this there are the wars with the Persians, and we see struggles with diverse nations threatening and “kingdom rising against kingdom” (Matt. 24:7). When the Roman empire begins to be consumed by the sword, the coming of the Evil One is at hand. It is necessary that the world come to an end at the completion of the Roman empire.
In those days two brothers will come to the Roman empire who will rule with one mind; but because one will surpass the other, there will be a schism between them. And so the Adversary will be loosed and will stir up hatred between the Persian and Roman empires. In those days many will rise up against Rome; the Jewish people will be her adversaries. There will be stirrings of nations and evil reports, pestilences, famines, and earth quakes in various places. All nations will receive captives; there will be wars and rumors of wars. From the rising to the setting of the sun the sword will devour much. The times will be so dangerous that in fear and trembling they will not permit thought of better things, because many will be the oppressions and desolations of regions that are to come.
We ought to understand thoroughly therefore, my brothers, what is imminent or overhanging. Already there have been hunger and plagues, violent movements of nations and signs, which have been predicted by the Lord, they have already been fulfilled (consummated), and there is not other which remains, except the advent of the wicked one in the completion of the Roman kingdom. Why therefore are we occupied with worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of worldly business, and why is our mind held fixed on the lusts of the world or on the anxieties of the ages? Why therefore do we not reject every care of earthly actions and prepare ourselves for the meeting of the Lord Christ, so that he may draw us from the confusion, which overwhelms all the world? Believe you me, dearest brother, because the coming (advent) of the Lord is nigh, believe you me, because the end of the world is at hand, believe me, because it is the very last time. Or do you not believe unless you see with your eyes? See to it that this sentence be not fulfilled among you of the prophet who declares: “Woe to those who desire to see the day of the Lord!” For all the saints and elect of God are gathered, prior to the tribulation that is to come, and are taken to the Lord lest they see the confusion that is to overwhelm the world because of our sins. And so, brothers most dear to me, it is the eleventh hour, and the end of the world comes to the harvest, and angels, armed and prepared, hold sickles in their hands, awaiting the empire of the Lord. And we think that the earth exists with blind infidelity, arriving at its downfall early. Commotions are brought forth, wars of diverse peoples and battles and incursions of the barbarians threaten, and our regions shall be desolated, and we neither become very much afraid of the report nor of the appearance, in order that we may at least do penance; because they hurl fear at us, and we do not wish to be changed, although we at least stand in need of penance for our actions!
When therefore the end of the world comes, there arise diverse wars, commotions on all sides, horrible earthquakes, perturbations of nations, tempests throughout the lands, plagues, famine, drought throughout the thoroughfares, great danger throughout the sea and dry land, constant persecutions, slaughters and massacres everywhere, fear in the homes, panic in the cities, quaking in the thoroughfares, suspicions in the male, anxiety in the streets. In the desert people become senseless, spirits melt in the cities. A friend will not be grieved over a friend, neither a brother for a brother, nor parents for their children, nor a faithful servant for his master, but one inevitability shall overwhelm them all; neither is anyone able to be recovered in that time, who has not been made completely aware of the coming danger, but all people, who have been constricted by fear, are consumed because of the overhanging evils.
Whenever therefore the earth is agitated by the nations, people will hide themselves from the wars in the mountains and rocks, by caves and caverns of the earth, by graves and memorials of the dead, and there, as they waste away gradually by fear, they draw breath, because there is not any place at all to flee, but there will be concession and intolerable pressure. And those who are in the east will flee to the west, and moreover, those who are in the west shall flee to the east, and there is not a safer place anywhere, because the world shall be overwhelmed by worthless nations, whose aspect appears to be of wild animals more than that of men. Because those very much horrible nations, most profane and most defiled, who do not spare lives, and shall destroy the living from the dead, shall consume the dead, they eat dead flesh, they drink the blood of beasts, they pollute the world, contaminate all things, and the one who is able to resist them is not there. In those days people shall not be buried, neither Christian, nor heretic, neither Jew, nor pagan, because of fear and dread there is not one who buries them; because all people, while they are fleeing, ignore them.
Whenever the days of the times of those nations have been fulfilled, after they have destroyed the earth, it shall rest; and now the kingdom of the Romans is removed from everyday life, and the empire of the Christians is handed down by God and Peter; and then the consummation comes, when the kingdom of the Romans begins to be fulfilled, and all dominions and powers have been fulfilled. Then that worthless and abominable dragon shall appear, he, whom Moses named in Deuteronomy, saying:-Dan is a young lion, reclining and leaping from Basan. Because he reclines in order that he may seize and destroy and slay. Indeed (he is) a young whelp of a lion not as the lion of the tribe of Judah, but roaring because of his wrath, that he may devour. “And he leaps out from Basan.” “Basan” certainly is interpreted “confusion.” He shall rise up from the confusion of his iniquity. The one who gathers together to himself a partridge the children of confusion, also shall call them, whom he has not brought forth, just as Jeremiah the prophet says. Also in the last day they shall relinquish him just as confused.
When therefore the end of the world comes, that abominable, lying and murderous one is born from the tribe of Dan. He is conceived from the seed of a man and from an unclean or most vile virgin, mixed with an evil or worthless spirit. But that abominable corrupter, more of spirits than of bodies, while a youth, the crafty dragon appears under the appearance of righteousness, before he takes the kingdom. Because he will be craftily gentle to all people, not receiving gifts, not placed before another person, loving to all people, quiet to everyone, not desiring gifts, appearing friendly among close friends, so that men may bless him, saying;-he is a just man, not knowing that a wolf lies concealed under the appearance of a lamb, and that a greedy man is inside under the skin of a sheep.
But when the time of the abomination of his desolation begins to approach, having been made legal, he takes the empire, and, just as it is said in the Psalm:-They have been made for the undertaking for the sons of Loth, the Moabites and the Ammanites shall meet him first as their king. Therefore, when he receives the kingdom, he orders the temple of God to be rebuilt for himself, which is in Jerusalem; who, after coming into it, he shall sit as God and order that he be adored by all nations, since he is carnal and filthy and mixed with worthless spirit and flesh. Then that eloquence shall be fulfilled of Daniel the prophet:-And he shall not know the God of their fathers, and he shall not know the desires of women. Because the very wicked serpent shall direct every worship to himself. Because he shall put forth an edict so that people may be circumcised according to the rite of the old law. Then the Jews shall congratulate him, because he gave them again the practice of the first covenant; then all people from everywhere shall flock together to him at the city of Jerusalem, and the holy city shall be trampled on by the nations for forty-two months, just as the holy apostle says in the Apocalypse, which become three and a half years, 1,260 days.
In these three years and a half the heaven shall suspend its dew; because there will be no rain upon the earth, and the clouds shall cease to pass through the air, and the stars shall be seen with difficulty in the sky because of the excessive dryness, which happens in the time of the very fierce dragon. Because all great rivers and very powerful fountains that overflow with themselves shall be dried up, torrents shall dry up their water-courses because of the intolerable age, and there will be a great tribulation, as there has not been, since people began to be upon the earth, and there will be famine and an insufferable thirst. And children shall waste away in the bosom of their mothers, and wives upon the knees of their husbands, by not having victuals to eat. Because there will be in those days lack of bread and water, and no one is able to sell or to buy of the grain of the fall harvest, unless he is one who has the serpentine sign on the forehead or on the hand. Then gold and silver and precious clothing or precious stones shall lie along the streets, and also even every type of pearls along the thoroughfares and streets of the cities, but there is not one who may extend the hand and take or desire them, but they consider all things as good as nothing because of the extreme lack and famine of bread, because the earth is not protected by the rains of heaven, and there will be neither dew nor moisture of the air upon the earth. But those who wander through the deserts, fleeing from the face of the serpent, bend their knees to God, just as lambs to the adders of their mothers, being sustained by the salvation of the Lord, and while wandering in states of desertion, they eat herbs.
Then, when this inevitability has overwhelmed all people, just and unjust, the just, so that they may be found good by their Lord; and indeed the unjust, so that they may be damned forever with their author the Devil, and, as God beholds the human race in danger and being tossed about by the breath of the horrible dragon, he sends to them consolatory proclamation by his attendants, the prophets Enoch and Elijah, who, while not yet tasting death, are the servants for the heralding of the second coming of Christ, and in order to accuse the enemy. And when those just ones have appeared, they confuse indeed the antagonistic serpent with his cleverness and they call back the faithful witnesses to God, in order to (free them) from his seduction…
And when the three and a half years have been completed, the time of the Antichrist, through which he will have seduced the world, after the resurrection of the two prophets, in the hour which the world does not know, and on the day which the enemy of son of perdition does not know, will come the sign of the Son of Man, and coming forward the Lord shall appear with great power and much majesty, with the sign of the wood of salvation going before him, and also even with all the powers of the heavens with the whole chorus of the saints, with those who bear the sign of the holy cross upon their shoulders, as the angelic trumpet precedes him, which shall sound and declare: Arise, O sleeping ones, arise, meet Christ, because his hour of judgment has come! Then Christ shall come and the enemy shall be thrown into confusion, and the Lord shall destroy him by the spirit of his mouth. And he shall be bound and shall be plunged into the abyss of everlasting fire alive with his father Satan; and all people, who do his wishes, shall perish with him forever; but the righteous ones shall inherit everlasting life with the Lord forever and ever.
Jesus said, in the book of Matthew 24:24 “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
How is it possible for the elect to be deceived by false christs and false prophets? There is only one way- that, like the devil- they know the bible, and can bend it to fit their own meanings, being so similar to what Christ and his Apostles taught, that honest, God-fearing people (and pastors!) can actually be totally deceived!
A blatant violation of scripture would be enough, to properly trained Christians, to show up the deceiver immediately. However, with the pathetic nonsense that Christians have been doing with Christianity for the past, oh, 500 years or so, Christians are NOT properly trained, and have been so blown around by the wind of ‘special secret insights and understandings’ of scripture, that even the pastors buy into the LIE.
Jesus also said, in Matthew 12:25 “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” And in Luke 12:52 “For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.”
So, there we have a BIG part of the problem. The house of God is divided, divided in many ways, all in opposition the only personal and direct prayer of Jesus in John 17, that they may all be ONE as WE ARE ONE.
How can we tell the pastors have been deceived? They are indeed cooperating with the Anti-christ in a very real way, AND misusing scripture to do so. They have fallen in love with their own words, their own thoughts, and have rejected… well…
I quote: “Phony Christian leaders are brainwashing their congregations to accept the premise that the totalitarian police state is “of the Lord” and that they should get on their knees and lick jackboots while the round-ups take place as citizens are processed into quarantine zones and detention camps by the National Guard and U.S. troops returning from Iraq.”
In order to justify this horrendous travesty, the Pastors (and the fascists) quote this scripture: Romans 13: and tell us to:
Submit to Government
1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.”
Let this be clear: EVERY SOUL SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE GOVERNING AUTHORITIES.
In the case of America, the governing authorities are the CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS.
Under martial law, which is ILLEGAL according to these founding documents, EVERY SOUL including the President, the Representatives, the Judiciary, the Military, the Police and all officials from the least to the greatest, are BOUND BY SCRIPTURE, OATH OF OFFICE, AND LAW to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.
The role of the pastors is to remind each of those souls that they are in VIOLATION of the very texts they seek to use to garner complicity and quell ‘dissent.’ The Pastors should be quoting the second verse AGAINST them: Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
Furthermore, under illegal martial law, the President is no longer a ‘ruler’ but a TYRANT. Therefore, verse 3 says: rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.
What, exactly, is illegal martial law, and the illegal policing of Americans, than a terror to good works?
And here, in verse 4: if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain
In Christian Tradition, we have the Just War Doctrine which DEFINES, according to Christian morality, the very restricted ways in which war can be moral and Christian. This is no small matter, given that under EVERY SINGLE TENET of the Just War Doctrine, the wars we have been conducting are PURE EVIL.
Christian pastors are obligated, before the God they claim to represent, to declare and make PLAIN that our ‘government’ which has contravened our law, has ALSO contravened international and Christian law in its purpose for and conduct of war.
Specifically, our ‘government’ has declared as POLICY a pre-emptive, first strike NUCLEAR war to be on the table. The Catholic Bishops have come out and publicly declared that ‘NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE PURE EVIL.’
Just like any other Christian Doctrine that they MUST teach their flock, such as the evil and immorality of abortion, the pastors are obligated to teach their flock the evils of pre-emptive, first strike war; the evils of nuclear weapons; the unspeakable evil of actually being willing to attack a poorly armed developing country, who is no credible threat to us, with NUCLEAR weapons.
Due to the arrogance of divisive Christian pastors, who have chopped up the Body of Christ with their preposterous and outrageous interpretations of scriptures that they barely read, the pastors have BECOME DECEIVED BY THE ANTI-CHRIST AND HAVE BECOME HIS HANDMAIDS.
It is time, NOW, for Christians everywhere to give up the idea that Jesus Christ is the LIAR– He promised to be with His Church TO THE END OF THE AGE. However, in pride and arrogance, there are all kinds of Christian Denominations that feel that as soon as He ascended to Heaven and the last Apostle died, that the sins of the people IN the Church which the Apostles started, drove the Spirit OUT like the money-changers, until the day that God SAW THE LIGHT when you were finally born, so that these NEW DENOMINATIONS proclaimed themselves specially ‘chosen’ by God to be the remnant.
No, indeed, FEMA & Patriot Act Pastors, YOU have been deceived all along, you have done it to yourselves, and NOW you are TOOLS to be used by the Anti-christ to help bring in his reign of terror, on the backs of your ‘sheep,’ at the expense of the Constitution and of YOUR COUNTRY, all without a peep of dissent from a single one of you!
But, YOU WON’T. You won’t give up your positions, you won’t humble yourselves and seek to re-unify the Body of Christ, you won’t change your preaching from the Prosperity Gospel to the CROSS; to the one of Christians ‘making up for what is lacking in the suffering of Christ.’
You will PREFER to be deceived because it is …. so close… SO CLOSE… to what you PREFER to think is scriptural interpretation, the ones you’ve ignored, torn out of context, mistranslated and misused all along to get your tithes, your honor, your respect, your wealth… can 500 years of ‘theologians’ be wrong?
Yes, especially if you prefer to believe that the previous 1500 years of theologians were wrong first. What, exactly, has made YOU better? What, exactly has made YOU more useful to the Kingdom of God? Who do you think you are???
You know from Revelation 13: So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue[c] for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe,[d] tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
By setting aside the God ORDAINED Constitution and Bill of Rights, illegally and without precedent, the government has enshrined laws of MEN in the place of the laws of God- the beast has empowered the devil. There is NO OBLIGATION for any Christian, or anyone who receives the ‘blessing for all’ of the Constitution, to obey the laws of men seeking their own evil self-interests.
The ONLY answer a genuine pastor and man of God can make is the same one the Apostles made before him: “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29.
However, you yourselves are unable to see through the deception! You yourselves have NO Discernment of Spirits that is given by God to His true shepherds. If that doesn’t frighten you, ‘shepherd’, it should. You, whether for blessings or condemnation, must answer to the Lord for the souls in your care and keeping. You are permitting them all to be sacrificed to the anti-christ as a blood offering to evil.
Recall that the Beloved also said, “Not everyone who says to me Lord! Lord! will get into heaven.” The sifting of sheep and goats has begun IN EARNEST, in our day, and in our present realities. Who among you hasn’t preached that these are the ‘end times’ spoken of in Scripture? Who among you hasn’t ‘warned your flock of the anti-christ?’ Yet, you yourselves have fallen for him. There will be no rapture to bail you out of your responsibilities before God. The anti-christ is misleading the entire inhabited world, and you are helping him out. Like everybody else, you will ‘reap what you sow.’
It is TIME to prepare your flock for the events of verse 10- since NO ONE has stood up to the EVIL so far, but has been deceived in so many ways, so that even proper governance is removed, then it is time for the captivity, patience and faith of the saints.
