Do We Suffer from “A.A.F.S.”…?

apocalyptic-anticipation-fatigue-syndrome
Apocalyptic Anticipation Fatigue Syndrome.

So far, that’s the best acronym I could come up with.

It is hard for anyone who believes that we are indeed entering into the “Last Days” to not at times feel overwhelmed by the ceaseless array of warnings, wailings, railings and pronouncements of impending doom. Just yesterday, my mental faculties were presented with no less than four different occasions on which the prospect of an impending EMP attack was being put forth (and they weren’t all coming from “alternative media” sources”)

If you believe in the Bible, (and take it seriously) then you know about what Jesus says regarding the End of Age, and the “birthpangs” and wars and rumors of wars”. You know it will get increasingly unstable and tumultuous as we approach the Return of Christ, and as a result, it’s really not surprising that so many people get so easily fixated on waiting for the next big “cataclysmic thing”, be it a total global economic collapse, World War III, Israel going nuclear on it’s Arab neighbors, an earthquake so massive it changes the very landscape of the continent, “zombie apocalypse”, pandemic outbreak of disease, the next large-scale 9/11-type false flag attack, an alien invasion (real or synthetic), or some resurrected Nephilim horde spewing out of the pit to reek havoc upon mankind…

It’s not just people who believe in bible prophecy either, but it would seem that even the mainstream media is full-on participatory in promoting the idea that we’re gonna get hit with “the next big punch” at any given second. A suitcase nuke going off in NYC, or a secret army of Muslim assassins that has been sneaking across the southern border is suddenly unleashed… The net result is that we are collectively in a constant state of holding our breath, looking around, this way and that, wondering which direction that next big ‘ol punch is going to come from.

Our culture at large essentially equates the term “apocalyptic” with meaning massive, earth-shattering destruction. If an event is being described as “apocalyptic”, it more or less means it’s one of the most devastating floods, or earthquakes, or wars or whatever that humans have ever seen before. In the Bible however, “apocalypsis” in the Greek just means “unveiling” or “revealing”. Now, I’m not trying to get into a big debate on pre-Trib vs. pre-Wrath, but I will say that if Jesus’ return is what coincides with, and actually kicks off the brunt of God’s true unleashing of wrath upon the world (wrath being truly cataclysmic, not just “difficult” or a time of persecution, but where the elements are actually “destroyed by fire” 2 Peter 3:10) then this is the only sense in which “apocalyptic” can be accurately used to describe both the “Revealing” and “utter destruction”.

Anyhow… My point in all this, is that even though yes, we have absolutely seen an unprecedented number of “fantastic events” in our lifetimes, I would still have to say that when you step back and look at it all, the vast majority of how things have progressed towards a one-world government, one-world economy and one-world religion have not been via huge, massive cataclysmic events, but through a slow, steady progression that most people scarcely notice. I saw a piece on this show called “Brain Games” the other day, talking about how we are wired to notice sudden changes, but not so much gradual ones. They showed a painting of a town on the screen for about ten seconds, then ask if you could identify how many things in the painting changed. There were a few that were obvious, because they suddenly appeared/disappeared. But the rest were slow. From the beginning of the time to the end, the entire color of the sky actually changed, but you don’t even notice it, because your eyes are busily darting around the picture looking for rapid, sudden changes, and so the gradual color shift unfolds right in front of you and you don’t even realize it…

Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

I grew up in a church environment where basically the prevailing mindset regarding the “End Times” was that sure, things in the world today are “evil” and getting further away from God, BUT, overall, we’re going to more or less keep trucking along in our comfortable middle-class American church-going lifestyle until Jesus suddenly beams us all up one unexpected moment, and the world is left without a clue, and then the “tribulation” will begin, and that’s when stuff get’s crazy.

I don’t believe that anymore. I guess now, I’m just at the place where I understand that being “sober-minded” doesn’t just entail being able to look at all the “birthpang events” and know that it means that Christ’s return is getting closer. Being “awake and sober” also means remembering what the scriptures also say about how people will be saying “peace and security”, all the way up until Jesus returns, until that final Day, that final moment when EVERYTHING in the world is baptized with fire, and God goes all the way with making a new heaven, and a new earth…

In the meantime, I am ever-increasingly feeling convicted that it’s not just the “big scary events” that we as Christians should so concerned with being prepared for, with all manner of things like food storage and guns and shelters and whatnot. It’s the “peace and security” that almost poses a more dangerous threat. The gradual, almost imperceptible change. The whole “boiling a frog” metaphor. We have now for decades been debating and discussing topics such as just what the “Mark of thedoomsday_wrist_watch Beast” will be. Will it be a chip? An implant? A code? Some kind of genetic “enhancement”? Every year the debate goes on, we all baby-step a little closer to that system. We all hold our breath, convinced that at any given day, the market could crash, the sky will fall, and then the need will arise for the Mark to be issued, but in the meantime, we’re still using our debit cards, and smart-phone apps, and digitized bank accounts, etc…

But what if it doesn’t actually happen like that. What if humanity, those who don’t believe in the Bible at all, and those who say they do, all of us, are all kept peering at the sky, glued to our screens, waiting for the market to drop, for the bomb to go off, for martial law to be declared… Waiting for that “doomsday clock” to finally, FINALLY “strike midnight”… And after decades of our groggy, droopy-eyed “apocalyptic anticipation”, we finally look down, and realize that somewhere in the midst of our planning and preparing and prognosticating, we somehow numbly went right ahead and took the Mark ourselves, and didn’t even realize it…

Double-Speak and Paper Fences…

Barack Obama

I guess right now the POTUS is on Air Force One on his way to Las Vegas. Apparently he’s going to speak at a high school or something, and probably talk about his newly announced executive order on immigration. There are a lot of folks around here pretty stoked about it actually. I probably shouldn’t say much more on that though…. (!)

I don’t tend to stoop to the point of picking on poor Barack. Not cuz I don’t think he’s got a lot of stuff wrong, it’s more just the feeling you get from a super boring sport. What’s the point. It’s like getting mad at the pimple-faced assistant manager who is constantly sent downstairs by the CEO’s upstairs, constantly tasked with the undesirable job of telling the working stiffs yet more news that will only infuriate them, sooner or later…

Yet yesterday, I admit I found myself watching the “telly” and feeling sincerely agitated as I watched snippets of Bomb-ah saying stuff that is just patently, horrifically, demonstrably, false.

Did I actually hear him say that there are less people trying to cross the border illegally today than since the 1970’s…?

Almost don’t even know what to say anymore. I basically just stood there and shook my head. It’s harder to decide which is more astounding, the fact that he is now standing before the whole nation and seriously trying to defend his right to make unilateral executive decisions because the “congress won’t act”, or the fact that most Americans actually believe that this is really the first time he’s actually done such a thing.

But rest assured ‘Merica, Obama has promised that if illegal immigrants are found to be “criminals”, they will indeed be exported. What exactly that means is beyond me. You mean, if you actually catch them in the act of committing a crime, you will deport them (so they can turn around and walk back into the country and commit another crime…?), or if you find them to be in “the system” listed as a “criminal”..? How does THAT work exactly, if they are already illegal and thus have no records in the first place?

I suppose I shouldn’t gripe too much. After all, this little “current event” piece provided an excellent opportunity to explain to my kids how the Constitution spells out the three branches of government, and how this is supposed to create a balance. It also provided an opportunity to explain how this has all been completely thrown into the trash bin of history, and actually has been for many years, and they are now only starting to come out and admit it openly.

It’s almost as if all that remains to be seen is if the 1 Amero bills will feature the ol’ pyramid and all-seeing-eye as well…

Is The “Black Awakening” Gaining Momentum, And Are We Hitting The Snooze Button…?

mass-shooters6Last night’s shooting on the campus of Florida State University is the most recent ‘mass shooting’ in America, an occurrence which seemingly now become so common-place in our collective thinking that it almost seems as though societally we have become virtually numb to them, lest we happen to have been personally on the scene of the incident, or related to someone who was. A gunman walked into the campus library after midnight and shot at least three people, before being shot by police, and the very morning after it is not even the headlining national news story. We are instead being bombarded with pre-emptive backlash against Obama’s speech later tonight where he will allegedly explain his new executive order on Immigration (as if it’s the first time he’s done this!), or seeing footage of the amazing snowstorm taking place in Buffalo, New York. “So the guy only managed to wound a few people before killing himself?”, we say. Yawn. Is the Buffalo Bills football stadium going to be ok under all that snow?

Back in the days when something like Columbine happened, people all across the country were aghast and in shock, racked with the haunting, inner question of “Why? WHY!?!??”

But now, after all the intervening years with Gabby Giffords and the Boston Bombing and Sandy Hook, a few people getting shot in a University midnight study session, or at lunch in a High School by the homecoming prince, is hardly something to get our feathers ruffled over anymore. This report posits that there have now been more than 90 school shootings just in the last two years, since Sandy Hook, in December of 2012. THIS website features a “mass shooting tracker” and actually lists 253 incidents of multiple-victim shooting in 2014 alone. It’s hard to know for sure exactly how they derive their statistics, but even as a generic measure the number is nevertheless quite astounding. These kinds of incidents continue to occur again and again, sometimes with a few months hiatus here or there (such as this summer when we were allegedly on the verge of war with Russia for a couple months…) but they inevitably start up again, and the gun-control agenda slowly marches onward in stalwart manner.

I will say that when you look at the incidents since Sandy Hook, there DOES seem to be somewhat of a trend of the mass shootings being smaller in the number of victims per incident on average, yet they are increasing in frequency. Is this by design? Has the much publicized scrutiny of the events of Sandy Hook (at least within the “truther” circles) prompted the perpetrators of these programmed killings to dial it down a bit, or are the shooters perhaps just not managing to tally up as large of body counts before either being taken out by the police, or the suicide protocol kicks in?

It is also admittedly quite perplexing to notice that in an increasing number of these shooters, they are sometimes quite difficult to trace back any “tell tale signs” to programming. The recent case in Marysville, Wa with the high school shooter there is a case in point. The cold, calculated manner in which the shooter actually gunned down not just his classmates, but his close friends (one of whom was his cousin), as well as the self-inflicted gunshot to himself, chillingly seems to indicate a sinister underlying motivation, yet at this stage it is hard to make any connections to things like military family members or previous “psychological problems”.

Overall, it just seems like this whole phenomena gets weirder all the time, as these kinds of events become increasingly common, to the point of almost being “routine” to the American public…

It Is Time to Rise Up Together and Demand HOVINDICATION…

220px-Kent_Hovind_mug_shot Starting yesterday, the Father has taken hold of my heart and mind and lit a fire in my spirit, and I feel compelled to write the first in what is certainly going to be an ongoing series of posts about the current plight of Dr. Kent Hovind. This fire was first kindled after listening to this very recent phone interview – Digging for the Truth with Ark and Neo: Interview with Kent Hovind from Prison.  Immediately after listening, I quickly emailed my good friend Sam from God’s Property Radio (who is mentioned in the podcast) and he filled me in on more details, and directed me to this short interview, and podcast, which also gives information on the recent arrest of Paul J. Hansen as well: God’s Property Radio Coin Toss: Free Kent Hovind / Free Paul J. Hansen. I not only recommend everyone listen to these two audio files, I URGE you to, I plead with everyone reading this to start by downloading these programs, get informed on all that has transpired in the past surrounding this preacher of the Gospel, and what is now unfolding as we speak.

Essentially, what is happening right now is that Hovind, only months before he was scheduled to be released from prison, is now being slapped with a laughably bogus charge involving mailing a notice of pending litigation in regards to a property that the government confiscated and sold anyhow… This new charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years.

Even after almost nine years, perhaps the majority of people who are familiar with Kent Hovind’s arrest and incarceration are under the false belief that he was tried and convicted of tax evasion. Simply do a google image search for Hovind and you will be treated to dozens upon dozens of pictures totally mocking him and his predicament. For the most part, the Church as a whole in America has turned a blind eye to this horrific injustice and chosen to be swayed by the smear tactics, but what has happened to Kent Hovind is not only a complete and utter abuse of the IRS and the justice system, but it is a case which has ramifications for every one of us living in this country. “My people perish for lack of knowledge”, and yes, we are lacking indeed….

If you take any time to examine the details of Hovind’s case, I promise you be shocked and dismayed, and you should realize that what is being done is an undeniable example of modern-day political persecution, the implementation of fraudulent and frivolous litigation against an individual who is guilty of nothing, other than courageously speaking unpopular truths, and defrocking the lies being embedded into our society and propagated by the Powers That Shouldn’t Be…

There is so much that could be said, yet I simply want to get this ongoing conversation started here, and continued on, and get the word out to as many as possible. I will conclude this particular post by including a video of Hovind’s presentation at the Prophecy Club, talking about the New World Order, which is EXCELLENT. In this speech he covers a whole array of topics such as the Federal Reserve system, the education system, politics, etc., but throughout them all, he weaves them altogether by looking at them all through the lens of Evolution, which he reveals as being a philosophy in itself, and demonstrates how it basically functions of as one of the foundational tenets of global luciferianism, without people even realizing it…

A Titanic Coup…

Yesterday I wound up watching the second half of some show on History channel featuring a bunch of scientists exploring the wreckage of the Titanic and trying to piece together the last undiscovered fragments to figure out “how it sank”. Bla bla blah, it reminded me… “Wait, didn’t I read somewhere several years ago that the Titanic allegedly had something to do with the Federal Reserve being created?” Yes indeed, I remembered correctly…

What I DIDN’T know about was how the sinking of the Titanic was “foreshadowed” in a novella 14 years prior. How interesting…

Benjamin Guggenheim, Isidor Strauss, John Jacob Astor, were three incredibly powerful, incredibly wealthy men who together comprised the last major bulwark against the creation of the Federal Reserve, and mysteriously, all three of them died in the “tragedy” of the Titanic. Personally, I find this whole tale quite fascinating, and I for one, do indeed believe that in all likelihood the sinking of this “unsinkable ship” was no accident. It is all even more interesting when you stop and think about the prevailing concepts we have about what happened when it sank, and the overall premise of movie like James Cameron’s “Titanic”, where basically the “historical” take-away is that all the poor passengers from “steerage” drowned in the icy water, while the tuxedo-wearing aristocrats (like Billy Zane, “boo…”) were the ones who spinelessly climbed into the few lifeboats and survived…

whitestarpentagramIn reality, it’s a pretty ingenious method of pulling off the assassination of three of the most wealthy and powerful men in the world in a single moment. If those same men had all died on the same day, under almost any other circumstances, it would’ve seemed incredibly suspicious and rumors of murder and intrigue would’ve immediately flown. But building an entire massive passenger vessel, just to sink it and kill a handful of people? Outrageous… Until you stop and consider just how such an investment would’ve seen a return, millions upon millions of times over, once the Federal Reserve Act came into being….

Also interesting that J.P. Morgan, (who ultimately owned the Titanic’s White Star Line) cancelled his own ticket aboard the Titanic at the last minute, claiming he was ill. He was reported to have been in perfect health and enjoying vacation in France a couple of days later…

At the moment I am watching this documentary from several years ago, which explores the possibility that the ship that sank that night in 1911 was actually the H.M.S. Olympic, the Titanic’s identical “sister ship” which had been damaged several months before Titanic’s maiden voyage and would’ve provided additional financial incentive to intentionally sink that ship and collect the insurance money, rather than have to invest the sizeable amount it would’ve required to make it sea-worthy again…

Replacement, or Fulfillment…?

cross_temple“Replacement theology”. This is a charge leveled by proponents of Christian Zionism towards those who would dare question the dispensationalist teaching which asserts that Israel is “God’s chosen nation”, and that the most important aspect of this chosen status is the fact that “God promised them the Land”.

The New Testament of the Bible, from beginning to end, endeavors to explain how the mission of Jesus Christ was for God to take on human form, and die in the place of fallen sinful humanity, and rise again, in order that we might have the ability to experience new, resurrected Life ourselves, along with Christ in His Kingdom, if we put our faith in Him. This applies to every man, woman and child on the face of the earth, regardless of race, gender, nationality or age. However, this amazing and profound proclamation is rendered insufficient, and irrelevant, by those who still prefer to cling to concepts of “redemption”, “Messiah”, “kingdom” and “inheritance” which are earthly, and not eternal. This is what “Zionism” is all about, and the reason that “Dual-Covenant theology” was invented.

In the Bible, “Mount Zion” is the mountain of God, the “New Jerusalem”, a city “built not by human hands. (Heb 12:22/23, Heb 11:10, Acts 7:48/49, 2 Cor 5:1)

In this light, “Political Zionism” can really be seen as nothing short of trying to create “heaven on earth”.  This is the theology of “Dominionism”, the aim of bringing into being the occult axiom of “As Above, So Below“.

But getting back to “Replacement Theology”, the accusation which alleges that Christians who deny the existence of any “dual-covenant” are guilty of a most hideous and offensive error, because they are supposedly saying that the Church “replaced” Israel. This is simply a straw man argument, an attempt to discredit the opposing side by means of reframing the entire topic in a way that the Bible itself does not do. It is not a question of “replacing or not replacing”, it is a matter of “fulfilling or not fulfilling”…

The Old Testament is full of things which the New Testament declares to have been “shadows” of realities that are in fact eternal in nature, various forms of prophetic symbolism which in every single case were fulfilled by the Christ and His victory over death. (Hebrews 10)

Did the cross “replace” the sacrifices made on the altar of the Temple, or did it fulfill what was prophesied by the fact of what the sacrifices could never achieve themselves?

Did Christ’s teachings “replace” the Law, or did they fulfill the Law?

Did Jesus “replace” the Sacrifice God called Abraham to make of his son Isaac, or did He fulfill what was prophesied by the ram caught in the thicket?

Did John the Baptist “replace” the prophet Elijah, or did he fulfill what was prophesied about the “Elijah that is to come”?

Did Jesus “replace” Melchizedek, or did he fulfill what was prophesied through the person of Melchizedek and the type of priesthood he held?

Did Jesus’ resurrection “replace” Jonah being spat out of the whale, or Joseph being brought out of the Egyptian prison cell, or did it fulfill what was prophesied through their lives?

Did Jesus “replace” the Ark which saved Noah and his family from the Flood, or did He fulfill what was prophesied and portrayed, as the only way to be saved from eternal death and separation from God…?

The Law. The Prophets. The Patriarchs. The Temple. The Sacrifices. The Priesthood. The festivals. The Sabbaths. The food regulations. The New Moon celebrations. The rite of circumcision. The judges. The Israelite monarchy.

Practically everything which combines into all that can be considered that which constitutes “Israel”, serves a single, profound purpose. “These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Col. 2:17)

This was the teaching which infuriated the scribes and Pharisees to the point of screaming and gnashing their teeth in rage, and prompted the Pharisees to hunt down and kill the followers of Jesus for decades after His resurrection and ascension. This is the teaching which still flies in the face of modern Judaism (i.e. the Talmudic Rabbinic tradition, the ancestor of Pharisaical Judaism) to this very day. The whole notion of “dual covenant theology” is contradictory to the teachings of Jesus, the content of everything the N.T. writers said, and contrary to very heart of God. The only way Christians can swayed by the false teachings of modern prophecy “scholars” who cite singular, out-of-context verses like “Israel is the apple of His eye” is if they do not bother to stop and read the scriptures, in their entirety, for themselves. This is what false teaching has always relied upon, from the very beginning, and so it is now.

God of course is still in control. The things going on today in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are still part and parcel to God’s prophetic master plan. 1948 was not necessarily the glorious recreation of the “Promised Kingdom” as Zionists claim it to be, but it didn’t catch God off guard either! The point is that through it all, we must never allow ourselves to get fooled by people who would seek to confuse the “copies and shadows of what it is heaven” with the realities themselves. (Heb 8:5)

The Church is not a “replacement” for Israel, because “Israel”, in the temporal, earthly sense, was a “shadow of what was to come”, the Kingdom of Heaven.

Human Shields…

Once again the calendar brings us to “Veteran’s Day”, the day which the government has set aside to “honor” those who have “served our country”.

I pray this post is not unduly offensive to anyone reading it who has lost anyone they love to military conflict. That is not my goal. I only ask that you read this in it’s entirety before offering up a reaction.

Perhaps I should start with the caveat that my own two grandfathers served in WWII. They were both remarkable men, who I respected immensely, and through having a relatively close relationship with two figures who did in fact “serve” in the armed forces in wartime, I believe I can honestly say that my opinions towards the “system” as a whole is not an attack on the individuals themselves who have played an integral part in the various wars, conflicts and “police actions” embarked upon by this government over the past century or so.

The men and women who enlist, and fight, and die, do so largely in part because they sincerely believe they arewarposter fighting for the greater good. Sacrificing their own time, energy, family life, and even lives in order to protect and preserve something of great value. The “American way of life”. “Democracy”. “Freedom”…

But sincerity does not automatically equate to an accurate grasp of history, nor the political machinations behind what really causes wars to happen, nor the true depth and breadth of what is really being accomplished through all these global episodes of death and destruction.

Most folks have heard the abbreviated quote by Major Gen. Smedley Butler saying, “War is a racket.” The quote in it’s entirety reads,

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”

Another quote by this man who “served” is even more scathing:

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

aa-military-industrial-complex-map-of-USIn the “information age” we are living in today, anyone who chooses to do so can easily look into such allegations and discover that this is the sickening reality behind war, behind military build up, behind the stubborn belief that America is really “bringing peace and democracy to the world”. Modern warfare does not exist, cannot occur, without the infamous “military-industrial-complex”, a staggeringly massive infrastructure of companies and government institutions which build weapons, train personnel, and operate bases around the entire globe, and we are told that this massive edifice is an absolute necessity in order to keep us, the “civilians”, safe.

In the 2011 film ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’, the dastardly aim of arch-villain Professor Moriarty was eventually revealed to be to start a massive war across Europe, spreading across the rest of the globe, whereby he would fund and arm both sides, profiting immensely from a conflict triggered by the assassination of a single diplomat, a terrorist act of his own design. He describes the psychology behind this nefarious plot as thus:

“You see, hidden within the unconscious, there is an insatiable desire for conflict. So, you’re not fighting me, so much as you are the human condition. All I want to do is own the bullets and the bandages.”

Sadly, ironically, (and almost expectedly for those who have studied the correlations between Hollywood memes and the “deep state”), this is almost a perfection depiction of what has occurred behind the scenes of virtually every major global conflict going back well into the 1800’s, as has been thoroughly documented in examples such as the banking exploits of the Rothschilds in the Battle of Waterloo.Plutocracy

Indeed, The Napoleonic Wars, The War of 1812, The Civil War, The Spanish-American War, The Philippine-American War, the “Great War” or “War to End All Wars” (also now known as WWI), WWII, Korea, Vietnam, The “Cold” War, Gulf War I, Afghanistan, Iraq, (Syria…?) ALL of these spectacles of death have been born out of slightly modified variations this same, calculated equation. Bankers fund the war machines. Corporations build the war machines. Politicians sell the war machines. The blood of people “serving their country” fuels the war machines….

Any time you encounter a discussion/report on the never-ending conflict occurring in Palestine/Israel, you inevitably hear the refrain about how the Palestinian “terrorists” hide like cowards in homes and businesses, using the Palestinian citizens, men, women and children, as “human shields”. It is one of the most oft-cited pieces of propaganda implemented in the debate over Israel’s “right to defend itself”, and it is not something I intend to get into now (for it would merit a post of it’s own to give it the treatment it deserves) but I only mention this because to me, it brings it all home in a way that I had not quite previously considered.

We instinctively balk at the idea of a group of militants and killers hiding behind innocent people like cowards, and yet, this is precisely what is done by the War-Mongers of Washington, or the Financiers of Bloodshed, or the Military-Industrial-Complex or whatever else you want to call them, and we the American people help them do it.

How disgustingly ingenious is it, to have managed to both compel supposedly free-thinking individuals into signing up to “serve” in the military, no draft required, to be used as human fodder for an endless litany of profit-producing wars around the planet, and then turn around and use the veterans of those wars as a type of ideological shield, a human smokescreen of propaganda, a cultural defense mechanism against any true and cutting scrutiny of what is propelling this behemoth from deep underneath!

“Don’t speak ill of those who gave their lives so that YOU could enjoy the freedoms you have!”

Don’t you have any appreciation for the sacrifices made to protect this country!?”

How dare you question the official 9/11 story, don’t you have any respect for all the fire-fighters who died trying to save people trapped in the towers?”

Congressional Medal Of Honor Sirius BridgeThese are the kinds of responses you can expect to hear from those who have drank the Home-of-the-Brave-Kool-Aid, who instantly resort to defend the array of American “heroes”, just as they have been conditioned to do their entire lives.

But just how many innocent, nameless men, women and children have been wiped off the earth, through “surges” and “campaigns” and drone attacks and “smart” bombs and “counter-insurgencies” in the last decade alone, under the banner of “Pax Americana”..? I don’t think we’ll come close to knowing the true number this side of eternity…

And on that note, I conclude. Ignorance is not an excuse. Patriotism is not tantamount to cheering on our sons and daughters as they resign themselves to becoming order-following mechanisms of death, because we choose to believe that this is the price that must be paid in order to “preserve democracy” or the “American way of life”. The elite who constantly engineer and orchestrate these geoLightning-Washington-Monument-political “hot spots” in order to prompt the continuous need for further military intervention do not subscribe to any of these ideals of altruism or self-sacrifice or the “greater good”, as they build their vast financial and industrial empires on the graves of people whom they regard with no greater affinity than any other asset or liability on their books, so really the question is, why should we…?

Portals and Prisons…

snowpiercer-engine-ed-harris

This morning, I loaded up my mp3 player with some fresh content as I prepared to launch into my routine of making breakfast, washing dishes, and getting things moving along in the daily routine, as I usually do. (don’t have a dishwasher, so doing dishes by hand almost inevitably involves listening to one of my regular podcasts while I scrub away) Today, it happened to be Derek Gilbert’s latest interview from “A View from the Bunker”, as he spoke with author Dr. Michael Lake about his new book ‘The Shinar Directive’. Fabulous stuff. In many ways, it really reminded me of just how much information and understanding was all simultaneously assaulting my previous understanding of the Bible and the cosmos it describes, almost five years ago.

As phenomenal an idea as the “Genesis 6 paradigm” (the belief that fallen angels or “Watchers” mated with human women and had hybrid offspring) is to most church-reared folks, it is really just the launching point into an entire spectrum of ideas and events which shake most of our preconceived assumptions about the universe we live in, as is well explained in the aforementioned interview, which starts off with a great discussion of the person of Nimrod, a central part of Dr. Lake’s book.

Nimrod, as Dr. Lake explains, actually achieved something even beyond what the Watchers themselves were able to accomplish, that is, he “became a Gibborim”, a “mighty man before the Lord” (Genesis 10:8). Many scholars have limited this verse to simply meaning that he was a great warrior, hunter, king, but in fact, a deeper look reveals that what this is saying that Nimrod actually found a way to actually become a “nephilim”, through some manner of dark occult practice which the scripture (understandably!) does not expound upon, and became the figure who to this day stands as the epitome of what they hope and strive to become themselves, and what they hope to actually succeed in building as the coup de grace against God and His angelic army. Essentially, it could be regarded as the Tower of Babel 2.0, a gate to the heavens which Satan and his minions believe will give them the chance they’ve been waiting for to storm His presence and dethrone Him once and for all. I certainly never heard about those kinds of things in Sunday School…

Recently I saw the film “Snowpiercer“, which honestly I must say has to instantly rank right up at the top of the list of movies containing multiple layers of gnostic symbolism and interpretations. Seriously, I’d say it rivals the Matrix trilogy in terms of how much embedded ideas could be found within this screenplay, and as a result I’m still in the process of unpacking it all, but there is plenty that jumps out from onset, indeed just from the premise alone. Like all good examples of gnostic/NWO/fight-the-system movies, it works from several angles, the first being the more obvious allegory of humans fighting against an oppressive totalitarian system run by other humans. But, for those who have begun to understand what the underlying belief system of Gnosticism is truly all about, by the end of the film, we can start to recognize the similar themes being presented in terms of it working as a metaphor for “oppressed beings” seeking to find a way out of the prison they are in, built by a deluded and maniacal “Creator” who is always portrayed as having no inherent sense of morality in the end. The “tyrant god”, who must ultimately be outwitted and out-maneuvered in order to achieve true, lasting freedom…

snowpiercerfishtankIt is always about “escaping the Matrix”, escaping the “Cube”, the prison, the maze, the oppressive system. The genius of this gnostic “plot device” is that it appeals to what is often times a genuine reaction against real human examples of sin and misuse of authority, when in actuality we are being sucked into cheering for the cause of snowpiercerrevoltthe fallen angels who feel that God has callously and ruthlessly judged them for rebelling against Him, convincing themselves that they are in fact the benevolent ones, the true saviors of humanity, the “rebels” against an evil galactic empire…

The scene at the end of the film, where the freedom-fighters reach the “Engine” is perhaps the most revealing, in terms of just blatant visual cues. The room housing the “eternal engine” resembles a typical Hollywood portrayal of a “Stargate” if anything does, yet, in an interesting plot twist, the ultimate way of escape lies in blowing open the “gate” to the frozen outside world, rather than stepping into the role of becoming the conductor oneself. Like I said, there is a LOT that could be unpacked from this movie, but in the end we can at least say that it serves as yet another example of these same gnostic themes showing up with increasingly regularity in the latest Hollywood releases, alongside films like Noah, Transcendence, Maze Runner, Hunger Games, X-Men, Lucy, The Purge, and on and on and on…

It’s sort of funny, actually. One of the first things I came across when I encountered this realm of what some might call “fringe Christianity”, was this guy on youtube talking about “Nephilim Stargates“, and at the time I thought, “Wow, what a NUT!” 519hrrGgZeL__SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

But, alas, several years later, I count myself among those who now look at the Bible as the Word of God, and very much do see it describing things like interdimensional portals, and genetic manipulation, and a “Shinar Directive” which very much does link those in occult societies today to the person of Nimrod thousands of years ago. The objective is really quite unchanged, and even being loudly proclaimed all around us, if only we stop and take notice…

Why do you suppose the “ISIS flag” is in this picture with the Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram…?

abc_boko_haram_tk_140512_16x9_992

I noticed this a couple of nights ago when the TV News was doing a bit talking about how the missing Nigerian girls had still not been found. After a little digging, I learned that this image is a still shot from a video of the captured school girls taken by Boko Haram that surfaced in the middle of May this year. I find this incredibly curious, especially when I went to do a google search for anything discussing the presence of the “ISIS flag” all the way down in Nigeria, and found nothing…

The distance between Nigeria and the northern regions of Syria/Iraq where ISIS is attempting to set up their “caliphate” is approximately 2,500 miles, so they aren’t exactly what you’d call in the same neighborhood, geographically speaking! Furthermore, this picture/video was released in May, whereas most of the Western world didn’t start hearing about the new horror of the fundamentalist muslim world, “ISIS”, until around July. (Of course allegedly they existed for several years prior to this, under the radar of the mainstream media. I wonder if it’s because during that time we were simply referring to it as “Al Qaeda in Iraq” instead?)

But back to the flag itself. We can clearly see that it was printing using some form of professional machinery, it was painted onto a scrap of black fabric or hand-stitched or anything. The meaning behind the Arabic writing on the flag is itself quite universal, the “shahada”, but of course, the specific arrangement of the first line across the top (which means “there is no god but Allah”) and the second phrase of the shahada being put in the white circle in the middle (meaning “and Mohammed is the messenger of god”) isn’t something which goes back centuries along with the Islamic mantra itself.  I am still looking, but so far I haven’t been able to locate a single example of this specific design existing prior to 2014.  Boko Haram now appears to be using this design in earnest, as a befitting backdrop for public beheadings.  Maybe they were using it from the start, in what would be an amazing stroke of coincidence, to have independently adopted the same black, menacing symbol for their terrorist organization, that ISIS would months later.  When ISIS started making headlines, the leader of Boko Haram,  Abubakar Shekau, was quick to voice his support.

Logo_of_Boko_Haram_svg_So what does all this point to? I guess for me, this kind of thing strikes me as the sort of thing I wish more people would stop and take notice of, the people who are still unable to wrap their heads around the concept that countries/alliances like the U.S./NATO would now, and have historically, create all kinds of false flag attacks, false flag groups, and false flag scenarios in order to further their broader goals of military and financial domination of the globe.

What’s amazing to me is just how transparent these agendas can be, and yet so many people can be so oblivious, when for instance, last year, Obama and Kerry and co. were lobbying hardcore to go in and bomb the snot out of Syria, because “we knew for certain that they’re using lethal gases on their own people!” The war-weary public dug in their heals, refusing to put more American military personnel in the line of enemy fire, for reasons that increasingly fuzzy to American political understanding. The “war with Syria” was averted, thanks to the overwhelming voice of the people, to the cheers (and surprise) of many who oppose the ceaseless trend of American militarism.

So what happens next? On no… Look, this massive, well-funded army of blood-thirsty terrorists, who drive American made trucks and like using Facebook and twitter to “recruit”, are taking over, where…? Oh no, northern Iraq and Syria! Shucks, looks like we’re gonna have to start dropping bombs and droning houses, to “save the people”. What a co-inky-dink.

With Nigeria however, I can’t help but wonder if sort of happened the other way around… First, Boko Haram kidnaps all these innocent school girls, prompting the First Lady herself to mount a campaign complete with it’s own catchphrase “Bring Back our Girls“. Perhaps the massive amount of attention received by this very dastardly act wasn’t random, wasn’t as altruistic as we always want to believe either. Perhaps this event was meant to motivate the lethargic populace into turning their eyes toward yet another horizon filled with turmoil and threats of Islamic jihad. But alas, as saturated as we all now are by wars and rumors of wars, images of death and threats of “terror”, it’s no easy task to get the people riled up enough to want to support marching off into yet another forgotten corner of the globe to see it unfold into yet another tragic example of American military quagmires. We had special twitter hashtags and facebook pages, but this didn’t seem to intimidate the terrorists, or appeal to their guilt, nor did it lead to military intervention by the West. A few months and 18 different global crises later, we’ve all but forgotten about Nigeria.

So, just like Syria, you have to go back to the drawing board, get yourself a plan B as it were. I wonder what else we could roll out, that would enable us to put troops into the region of Western Africa…? Hmmm. Maybe if there was some kind of “outbreak”, some super scary contagious disease, that would prompt immediate and decisive global response. We’d need troops to go in and help “secure the area”, keep it from spreading, etc. And then, yeah… Once we get em there, get our foot in the door, it only takes another “incident” to compel those troops to make the short trip over to Nigeria, and then it’s game on…

Just speculating, of course. Just speculating….

Oh, the audacity of believing that there is One above who sees, knows, follows, loves and seeks out each and every single story, every life, every thought, dream, scream, hurt, joy, hope and fear.  When you stop, and think about how many countless lives are playing themselves out, every day, every minute, all over the world, it staggers the mind to conceive that the Lord of the Universe would know and love every single one of us, down to knowing the exact number of hairs on our heads.  What a claim.  What an outlandish, amazing, incredible, mind-blowing thing to believe.  Who could dare to dream up such a thing, and who could dare to live without it…
