I woke up with this song in my head….

That happens sometimes, but usually it’s one you’ve heard recently. Don’t think I had listened to this song in quite some time however. Nevertheless, there it was, playing clear as anything in my mind. Found this video of it on YT, where somebody took this beautiful song, so haunting and yet full of sober reflection, and set it against the backdrop of a film-footage-montage that makes for quite an interesting pairing. How much pain and suffering has gone on in the world that was ultimately prompted by the cyclical desire for trivial, temporal things…

“Cycling Trivialities”

Too blind to know your best
Hurrying through the forks without regrets
Different now, every step feels like a mile
All the lights seem to flash and pass you by

So how?s it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

But don’t know which way to turn
Every trifle becoming big concerns
All this time you were chasing dreams
Without knowing what you wanted them to mean

So how’s it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So how’s it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Who cares in a hundred years from now
All your small steps, all your shitty clouds
Who cares in a hundred years from now
Who’ll remember all the players
Who’ll remember all the clowns

So how’s it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So what does this really mean
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

If Dr. Seuss spoke Stranger Truth…

tripleslingjiggerEach morning as I wake up I turn on my TV set
To see if the daily dose of terrorism’s happened yet

A habit most unusual I guess I must agree
wondering if today’s the day they’ll finally kick off World War Three

or if the DOW will plummet to the basement like a rock
sending global markets reeling and economies to shock

If you ask me how I came to such a cynical perspective
Then just humor me a moment while I get a bit reflective

The world we know today did not just suddenly turn sour
the problems going on right now began way back in that first hour

When fruits forbidden tasted sweet but led to an eviction
and serpent seeds were planted in the garden’s dereliction

Thus through the many centuries which followed this in time
were gods, who were not gods, yet being worshipped in their prime

Teaching men so many things of which they surely ought not know
False histories, dark mysteries, all coming from below

And so this tragic partnership endured down through the ages
Secrets guarded jealously by mystics, cults and sages

On to this very hour now in which we all are living
This quest to turn men into gods, it’s dead gifts keep on giving

So this is why we all can look around and plainly see
a planet quite beset with copious iniquity

The rivers flow with toxins and the oceans foam with bane
the soil is radioactive and there’s acid in the rain

The atmosphere is criss-crossed after jets going flying by
(but I swear there never used to be plaid clouds up in the sky)

The factory foods don’t even breakdown in your stomach’s bile
and there’s chemicals in water just to polish up your smile

plus injections, pills a plenty, good for all your sniffs and sneezes
only problem is the cure is often worse than the diseases

Yet allopathic medicine is only just the start
warfare treats the deaths of millions as almost a form of art

17o8hdxg9niabjpgFirst there came the Nazis and the fascists and the Japs
all united in their zealous drive to wipe us off their maps

after that the Commies suddenly became endowed
with the power to destroy us in a massive mushroom cloud

As decades passed both arsenals increasingly inflated
as Hollywood made sure to keep the Soviets all hated

And after we all thought atomic doom’s specter had lifted
A morning in September forced our gazes to be shifted

this time to Arab enemies all hiding in their caves
who now must all be bombed into their dirty mountain graves

and so it is that Evil’s Axis constantly is turning
lest the Pentagon’s war engines all seize up and stop their churning

So many things were set in motion on that fateful day
when three steel towers fell as though made of paper mache

Each year now since, it so would seem, that flags keep flying falsely
events designed no doubt to increase our collective palsy

the next in line was Syria, invade them in their crisis
they called for war, at which we balked, and now, look, here comes ISIS…

knottyproblemBut could it be?  The very thought…  Our own leaders implicated?
Just pause my friend and please consider all they’ve now dictated

Greener lights for budgets black, when safety is the goal
airport fondlers have to search for “contraband-in-hole”

the cops now look like soldiers, and our soldiers are the best
if you don’t cower as expected then you do deserve arrest

The NSA is listening, always digitally aware
Everything you’ve ever done online in data files, somewhere…

But it gets even weirder, as you looks behind the scenes
and study harder these elites who say the ends warrant the means

If it’s just a bunch of rich folks wanting to be richer still
then why these other strange pursuits which go beyond that bill?

Why do they pray to owls of stone and act out divinations?
Why frolic where the Redwoods hide their sordid recreations…?

Why do so many men of stature, prominence and brass?
All hail from the same frat house where a skull’s a drinking glass?

And please would someone tell me what exactly’s going on
with that phalus made of stone shadowing the White House lawn…

Our holy-days all point to ancient pagan gods of old
and our favorite ritual now is one we call the “Super Bowl”

But if you’re getting weary of my ugly rants and rambles
and get tempted to believe that I think all the world’s a shambles

I’ll end by saying even though this all is sad but true
to realize that everything’s under demonic coup

It might be nasty as we look around us in this day
but there WILL come a moment when at last, with no delay

as just when it might seem that no real Faith could still be found
He’ll come as lightning fills the sky, and heaven’s mighty trumpets sound….

Outrageous Coincidence Theories…

bcc8bdf6d269f237c278a2e85bdb5623“Coincidence theory”. Oh, how I wish I had come up with that one… I didn’t of course, but was simply enthralled by the term and the inference behind it when reading a recent repost from Orwelliana. I could have just reposted the article once again, for it itself is quite good, focusing mainly on this idea in the context of Charlie Hebdo, but I suppose I simply wanted to ruminate on the rather profound implications of just how much “coincidence theory” is actually promoted and preferred to such an overwhelming degree.

Lots of people have already put forth a good deal of thought-provoking content dealing with this, and I suppose I might just put together a little collage of sorts here centering around the “Coincidence Theory” theme.

glass_pyramidDave Hodges has a rather pithy but intriguing article called “Conspiracy Theorists vs. Coincidence Theorists” in in which he elucidates nine examples of “coincidences” which beleaguer the mind…

All the way back in 2004, Jeff Wells wrote a piece called “The Coincidence Theorist’s Guide to 9/11”, an absolutely fantastic compilation of factoids and links surrounding, of course, the litany of bizarre “coincidences” attached to 9/11.

Much more recently Bernie Suarez wrote “How Coincidence Theorists (Non-Conspiracy) Are Playing Key Role In Destruction Of America”, which does a fairly nice job of describing how the system is undergirded by a basic mentality whereby: “They believe that politicians, government bodies, agencies, and committees accept the end results of daily political 6849817403_1f5a563739events as all due to happenstance. They believe chaos and spoof coincidence is the norm…”

Another fascinating little tidbit I came across whilst searching for “conspiracy-or-coincidence-related stuff”, was the story of the “Deadly Double Dice Game“, which was advertised for in the New Yorker a few weeks before the attack on Pearl Harbor, bearing all kinds of rather telling occult symbolism and numerology that seems to predict the attack.

Also, these two vids seemed worthy of inclusion on this topic. The first is “9/11 Coincidence Theory”, an excerpt from a speech by David Ray Griffin:
And here is Alan Watt on Conspiracy vs. Coincidence Theory:

(I certainly don’t necessarily agree with every little thing the guy has to say, but I think he at least creates plenty of decent conversation-kickstarters, and really the last minute of the video is the best part)

“Rothschild Zionism”, The Elephant In The Room…?

Ok, my wrist is allowing me to type a short bit today, I came across this video snippet last night sort of randomly, and I was surprised by how much it struck me. If you know anything about who David Icke is, and what he’s all about, then you should know that he’s definitely not someone I ever put forward as someone to listen to. In a nutshell, in case you don’t know, Icke is a total New Ager guy who is a part of the anti-NWO narrative which embraces the whole “love and light” side of mysticism, meditation, “enlightenment, etc., etc. He is of course, just as gripped by the demonic as those on the “dark side”, yet the thing which really floored me was this…

In this excerpt from 2010, he is talking specifically about Rothschild Zionism, and honestly, there is very little in this 30 minute segment that I would greatly disagree with. So what does that really say about the broader state of Christians today, in relation to the reality of something like the Rothscild control of Israel, if someone like Icke speaks far more truth on the subject that almost any half-way prominent Christian pastor or speaker or even Bible prophecy teacher? Even though, yes, many of the people he mentions in the video have moved on from the White House cabinent, you don’t have to do a ton of investigating to realize that everyone in place right now are all just as equally in support of the Israeli/Zionist agenda. (remember Biden’s famous quote saying “You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist”…?) I admit that before seeing this I had no idea that Rahm Emanuel had served in the IDF… Think about the crazy irony of something like that. A figure who is probably more central to the Obama presidency than any other single person, serving in the beloved Israeli military, an entity virtually worshipped by so many Christians who ignore Christ’s own teaching on things like “living by the sword”… Stranger bedfellows indeed, don’t you think?

Amazingly, Icke even does a better job at defining the distinction between actual “Rothschild Zionists” and just every person in the world with Jewish ancestry, than even a lot of Christians do who are willing to touch the subject. In the end, to me it really goes to show how relatively uncomplicated it can be to summarize these power-brokers and their influence on the world today, and like he says, the main hurdle is really just getting past the deep-seated fear of being labeled an “anti-semite” or racist or whatever, simply because you are willing to connect some rather painfully obvious dots…

Eschatotality…

fathersonspiritLately I’ve been thinking about a matter that seems to occupy my mind on a fairly regular basis. The toughest part is perhaps simply just trying to come up with a term or description of what “it” is in the first place. I don’t know if the made-up term “eschatotality” even makes that much sense, but it’s what I got for now. Anyways, there have been two sources in the last few weeks which really seemed to tie into this concept I’m hoping to elucidate, so I’ll start by touching on them both.

First, a friend wrote a piece about Eschatology. She makes several points which contained a fair amount of uncomfortable truth, such as “In Christianity, some people take their eschatology very seriously, men especially seem to love to ponder these things, partly because of the intellectual exercise and partly because of their heightened desire to do everything they can to try and protect their loved ones”. I know that isn’t designed as a slam, but perhaps it just hits a little close to home in terms of the kinds of things I’ve heard from family and friends at times. Particularly the female types.

I’d be lying if didn’t come clean and admit that yes, men tend to be somewhat more prone to turning eschatology into an intellectual exercise which itself becomes much more a function of pride and distraction that of real practical value. That’s a very real danger, I agree.

But as my understanding has increased over the past few years of both what the scriptures really teach about the Last Days and the broader conflict between the kingdoms of Heaven and hell, and the rather grim historical reality of the world in which we live, I have become increasingly convinced that “eschatology”, the parts of it that truly matter, aren’t really so much about focusing solely on a relatively brief instance of time where the anti-Christ has power over the earth and everything is crazy and bad and scary. It is about so much more than that…

The other thing I encountered recently which acted as a touchstone to this whole question was a podcast by Alan Kurschner. Alan speaks and writes almost exclusively about the “Pre-Wrath” position (as opposed to Pre-Trib), and I find his material pretty interesting and so I’ve been listening to him somewhat regularly. Lately though, he seems more and more caught up in trying to tackle the pre-Trib position head on, and almost sounds a little frustrated by how unyielding and unwilling to engage in debate/conversation most pre-Trib teachers are. I bring this up here because listening to him has really made me think a lot about how the doctrine of the pre-Tribulation rapture, if you really step back and look at it, isn’t something that just stands alone, but is in fact only one piece in a larger theological/cosmological paradigm, and this is why (I would argue) it is so difficult to convince people that it is something they can and should let go of.

I am probably only able to have much of an awareness of this because it essentially outlines the shift in my own view on the Bible, and the world as a whole.

When I myself used to hold to the assumption of pre-Trib truth, as I was taught in church, one of the central underlying components of this belief was that it was the event of the “silent rapture” itself that would provide the necessary global scenario, namely world-wide chaos and panic, that would set the stage for the anti-Christ to suddenly rise to absolute power. I remember reading a book by Dave Hunt when I was a teenager, who very heavily argued for this, and at the time it seemed to make a lot of sense to me. It’s basically the concept put forth by all those infernal “Left Behind” books and movies too. Million of people suddenly “vanish”, and as a result there are countless car crashes, plane wrecks, and overall freaking out because everyone “left behind” is wondering what the heck happened to everyone who suddenly disappeared, yadda yadda yadda…

But this is rather crucial, you see, the notion that the in order for the anti-Christ to arise, there must be this “post rapture chaos”. This perspective basically assumes that up until this moment, the world is really more or less progressing forward on a fairly “upward path”, largely due to the presence and influence of “Judeo-Christian values” and “Western culture” and other such drivel. But see, this is why they believe that when they, the Church, the “Christian influence in the world”, is taken out of the way, that the powers of Darkness will suddenly swoop in to fill the void. It’s really a pretty self-idolatrous approach if you ask me…

Anyhow, this is what I see as being a part of larger rift between the two doctrines. Much more than merely a question of timing, I see it now as being a question of the willingness to acknowledge just how much influence and control the Enemy is able to have, here, now, even while the Church is fully present in the world and in the flow of human history, as has had, ever since the Fall…

You often hear Christians warn or complain about focusing “too much” on the darkness, the deception, the occult. Don’t focus too much on the negative, it only “glorifies Satan”. I find this argument terribly misguided. After all, what if you were taking a course on Medieval history, or any history for that matter, would you say to your professor “Please sir, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t focus so much time and detail on all these horrible wars, and political intrigue, and clashes of kingdoms. I find it all to be terribly ‘negative’…”? No! History is history. Fact is fact. Reality is reality.

And this, I feel, is the real purpose and value of investing time in studying “eschatology”, not because we need to obsess over the minutia of exactly what might transpire within a window of 3 1/2 to 7 years, (thought those conversations are important too, don’t get me wrong!), but it is really about understanding the WHOLE story. Our whole story. The real histories and motivating elements behind our own stories, our lives, our various countries of origin, and yes, the governments and institutions and corporate powers which effect all of us daily. Everything…

I find it telling that you don’t seem to get a lot of resistance or backlash from established Church authorities, if you were to devote much of your life to studying and regurgitating the “official” history of things. The institutional church has really no issue with their congregants attaching themselves to pursuits which affirm the broader institutional paradigm. Be a doctor, a lawyer, a politician even. Join the army, become a general. Teach philosophy at a university like the Christendom’s hero C.S. Lewis. Be a marine biologist. Whatever. Study anything you like, so long as you are not wasting your time studying that which would suggest the ridiculous notion that “Civilization” as a whole is in fact NOT the glorious by-product of our marvelous Christian heritage, but rather the construct of an entourage of fallen angelic beings, led by Lucifer himself, a construct which in fact serves as the mechanism by which he ultimately aims to use in order to establish his fully-realized kingdom on Earth.

Scripture teaches us that our war is not against flesh and blood. The modern, carnal church, however, clings to a largely human-centered and mechanical view of things, and this is a large factor in why the bizarre, unbiblical teachings on a pre-Trib rapture and things like “dispensationalism” and various forms of Christian dominionism were eventually developed. They all, in one way or another, elevate the importance and supposed genius of man, while belittling the significance of the real battle going on in the spiritual realms, and in this one, as it all overlaps. This I believe is why so many people have such a hard time letting their pre-Trib views being challenged. Not because it’s hard to demonstrate it’s inconsistencies with scripture, but because to question it is to really start questioning their broader view of history and the world as a whole. The “matrix”, if you will.

Whether or not the world as we know it ends tomorrow, or many generations after I’m gone, it really doesn’t matter. The fact remains that having an unfiltered and adequate understanding of the world in which we all live is not folly, obsession, or mere intellectual sport. Indeed it is really the only true reason to study or seek truth at all…

“Todos Somos Americanos”….

NAU-ContinentI just listened to Obama announce his new direction for relations with Cuba.  Now, Sen. Rubio of Florida is currently speaking out against these announcements, calling them nothing but “concessions for oppression”.   I can’t argue with him, and think his words about the rights afforded us by the founding documents were quite stirring.  Like so many others, his family came to the United States in order to flee the harsh rule of the Castro regime, and many Cuban Americans who have a grasp of what life was like under communism are understandably not going to be too happy about the fact that suddenly it seems like U.S. is dismissing all the years of fighting and resisting that system.

Overall, I think this represents a watershed moment for sure, but perhaps not the type of one that many people might think.  I believe in the end this move was inevitable, and really only a single step in the larger push towards creating a “unified” North America, which of course is itself only a step towards creating a one-world governmental system.

It was Obama’s attempt to “connect with the audience” by speaking the phrase in Spanish, “Todos Somos Americanos” that most caught my attention.

The POTUS, who let’s remember has been leaving the southern border of the country wide open and inviting immigrants to come on in, today faces the people of Cuba and the rest of the western hemisphere and says, “We are all Americans”.  Now what do you think is being implied there….
