The nature of fear

In the previous entry I made the claim that the anti-Christ of the Bible can only refer to the Roman church, specifically its system of worship. The Reformers were all of one accord in regards to this question and there was no doubt in their minds, collectively, regarding the interpretation of Daniel 7. In this entry, I want to make it clear why this knowledge, while valuable, cannot be the focus of the Christian’s spiritual walk. It’s extremely important to know this truth, but it must be tucked away in the recesses of the mind, lest it take the place of Jesus as the focus of our worship. It is extremely likely that the study of the conspiracy will become much like an idol, in that the student spends all his time on YouTube instead of having his head buried in the Bible.

I was personally affected by this behavior, and still am to a small degree, but even in that condition God called me forth and bestowed this clarity of thought which the various conspiracies I was studying could not even come close to emulating. This article by the Post-modern pastor also helped me wake up further and realize my grave mistake. Anything I do, anything I write, must begin and end with Jesus. The importance of understanding the prophecies of the Bible lies in first understanding the reason for the prophecies. Even if I could understand every single prophecy, including the revelation of the date of Christ’s second coming, it would be of no worth as far as my salvation is concerned. Having knowledge has no bearing on the status of the soul with God.

This brings me to the topic of this entry, which is fear. I alluded to fear in the previous post as well, by reminding my dear readers that the enemy is using fear to herd us into the “Christian” ecumenical world religion. This fear is characterized by uncertainty about the future, to the point of not even trusting relatives and friends. I often peruse the discussion sections of various online news outlets, and the general consensus on the right-leaning blogs is that the good Christians are loaded for bear, just waiting for the system to collapse. I often ask some of the more fervent Christian brothers (and sometimes sisters) if they would really take the life of another human being, seeing how Jesus told us to turn the other cheek when an evil person attacks/persecutes us. The consensus is that yes, the good Christian is prepared to take a life, if it’s done in self-defense. This general sentiment leaves me utterly speechless, but I understand its provenance.

You see friends, fear makes us think, say, and do some pretty outlandish things. This is why fear is one of the greatest tools of Satan, second only to deception. The prophet Isaiah spoke to king Ahaz at one point, regarding Ahaz’s own fear:

“For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 8:11-14)

Ahaz even had a good reason to be afraid, yet God sends him a fairly strong rebuke. God is saying that we should not be afraid of the conspiracies in this world, rather let God be our fear. The next verse is somewhat puzzling in this context because God is also our sanctuary. God should be the object of our fear, but not in the way we fear the world. God is the only one who can affect history and He is the Judge at the end of this age. God is merely allowing these horrible things to happen in the world, for a time, until all people decide to choose a side. For those who fear God alone, He is the sanctuary from the world, the windbreak in the midst of the tempest. For those who sanctify God, fear of His judgment is only the natural consequence.

So brothers and sisters, please do not be discouraged by the happenings in this world. Please don’t think that God has forgotten us, that He doesn’t exist, or worse, that He is a tyrant who enjoys our torture. He is hoping that all of us turn from our own way and follow His Way, and walk through His Gate. He is there for you as a sanctuary in the time of the worst trouble. Even worse trouble is coming to this world, and we will need His protection even more in the coming years. It is easy to see how one would despair and quake with fright if God is not the first priority in one’s life. Yet He promised us that He will deliver His remnant, and that our reward is forthcoming. We live in interesting times indeed.

Who is the enemy?

On December 14, user @TalibKweli posted the following message on Twitter: ” Nicky Minaj is not your enemy. Shaun King is not your enemy. Deray is not your enemy. Spike Lee is not your enemy. Let’s focus on the enemy.”

I’d like to say that I agree in spirit with this Twitter user, who was actually posting a message in relation to the Black Lives Matter movement. I want to focus on the enemy, not the enemy of BLM, but the enemy of all humanity.

The enemy of all humanity is the father of lies, the angel of light, Lucifer (or Satan), who loved power so much he sought to ascend to the very top of the heavenly hierarchy, even above God (Isaiah 14:12-13). In contrast to Lucifer, God loved the world so much “that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God became flesh and dwelt among us, showed us that it is possible to resist temptation through the power He imparts to us, and eventually He died for our sins so that we may have everlasting life.

I want to make it absolutely clear that my intent here is not to attack individuals, not even those who are part of the enemy camp. Each person is precious in the eyes of God, and each person still has the potential to be saved. There are none “too far gone” for Jesus; He can still save all of us. Additionally, it is not my intent to focus on Satan, but the nature of the message makes it such that I have to talk a bit about his works and the works of those in his employ. Always remember that Jesus has already won the battle and that He is coming soon with our reward.

The people who are in charge of Satan’s plan, those who have the mark of Cain, play both sides of the fence. They incite the left against the right, the Christians against Muslims, Muslims against Jews, and variations of these themes, ad nauseam. They only know how to play this one type of game, but their repertoire of tricks is quite vast, for they have had a few thousand years of practice. Their ultimate goal is to create a conflict great enough that separation between groups of people is no longer an option. When they reach that point, the world government, global economy, and universal religion can be implemented. Your side isn’t winning, the puppeteers are winning.

The way they will reach their goal is to herd everyone into a hold through the use of fear. They attack from the left, from the right, from the Middle East, from whitin the church, and all these attacks move all of us closer and closer together. Don’t get me wrong, I would love for all people in the world to come together in agreeing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He is our redemption and ultimate prize. I would love for all people to confess that God is an interventionist God, and that His judgment is forthcoming. Alas, this is not the case with the herding of the people. We are being led into a fold that belongs to Satan, not God. As Christians, we need to recognize that we are being led away from Jesus. Our main goal is spreading the Gospel, not worrying that the Islamists are going to impose Sharia law in the West. The latter is merely a mirage, a distraction, so that we don’t have the time to look behind the curtain.

We need to stop talking about outlawing this religion, and that fundamentalism, and waging war against terrorism (as if it’s a real thing). We need to wake up and understand that the enemy is not your Muslim neighbour, your Jewish banker, or your Evangelical aunt. The enemy is way behind the scenes, pitting us against each other, planting subliminal messages in the media, and creating conflicts to suit their purposes. Stop playing their game and just be a witness to the message of Jesus Christ.

I think it’s probably time to stop beating around the bush and get to the point. In the book of Daniel, ch. 7, the prophet is given a vision of a great beast which follows the other beasts of history. This beast was shown to be the Roman Empire. Out of this beast comes a little horn who speaks great things against God, and makes war against the saints. This horn can only be the papacy, which made war against God’s people for 1260 years, and still does it in this day.

This whole world is under control of the Roman church through its agents, the Jesuits. They work behind the scenes, set up front organizations, fight against even their leader (the pope), incite wars and conflicts, and are the cause of the death of hundreds of millions of people on this earth.

This blog is not the best way to show exactly how this is happening, but there are videos of these theories being examined into detail. The playlist can be found here.
