Christians should question the news that is presented to them. I don’t merely mean they should question the facts of each story, though they certainly should do so. Christians should scrutinize carefully the selection of news stories the global media powers present to them on a daily basis. More than 90% of American media is controlled by an interlocking cabal of five major corporations who all pursue the same agenda. The agenda is to bring forth a New World Order that can only arise out of the destruction of the old world order.
The powers-that-be have done more than hint at their plans through the various media industries that they control. In the recent and commercially successful movie Captain America – The Winter Soldier, a character played by Robert Redford utters words that come straight from the globalist play book. At about the 35 second mark in this movie preview Robert Redford states, “Captain, to build a better world sometimes means tearing the old one down, and that makes enemies.”
At about the 58 second mark in this same preview Redford’s character Alexander Pierce declares, “You know how the game works. Disorder. War. All it takes is one step.” The cunning of Satan exercised by his disciples is observed in their ability to so deceive and manipulate mankind that the masses of humanity end up being active and willing participants in tearing apart the world. This prepares the ground for Satan to step in and offer his solution to the death and destruction. Satan and his global servants both create the chaos and offer their self-serving solution to the mayhem. All of this is done without the masses discerning what has been accomplished, or perceiving that they have been manipulated to do the very thing the adversary desired.
If you are a discerning Christian, you should be questioning the agenda behind the stories the media conglomerates have chosen to disseminate. In the previous post I examined the creation of the group ISIS and the attention given to their persecution of Christians. In this writing I will examine another story receiving major press coverage – the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. We will look at the agenda behind the media’s and government’s actions which have served to inflame the situation in Ferguson, and what they are accomplishing through it. We will also examine how readily the American populace, including Christians, allow themselves to be manipulated by an unseen hand that chooses what events receive major news attention, what information (or disinformation) is disseminated by the media, and how public opinion is shaped without the citizens of the nation realizing that they are being played as fools.
Day after day Americans are being plied with news stories crafted to manipulate them into adopting thoughts and actions that will inevitably lead to the accomplishment of a globalist agenda. It is absolutely requisite that Christians recognize the schemes of the adversary. If they do not, they will be exploited and manipulated into adopting the very thoughts and actions that Satan wishes them to embrace. Christ spoke the following words of admonition to His disciples.
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; therefore be shrewd as serpents, and innocent as doves. But beware of men…”
Christians are sent out as sheep in the midst of wolves. They are called to be “innocent” (harmless) as doves. It is NOT the will of God that Christians meet violence with violence, or for them to arm themselves with carnal weapons to defend themselves against human foes. Just before Christ ascended to the Father He spoke the following words to His disciples.
“You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
The Greek word translated here as “witnesses” is “marturos.” It is the root of our English word “martyrs.” Christ was literally saying, “You shall be My witnesses who will lay down their lives.” The same Greek word is used in the following verses.
“And when the blood of Your martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by consenting to his death, and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.”
“And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.”
These men were both witnesses and martyrs. When evil men sought to take their lives, these disciples of Yahshua did not meet violence with violence, or threats with threats. They did not revile those who hurled insults at them, nor threaten those who sought to harm them. They acted as sheep in the midst of wolves. They were harmless and innocent as doves. They entrusted their souls into the care of their heavenly Father and “loved not their lives unto death.” The Scriptures tell us that it is not the will of God that Christ’s disciples lower themselves to the level of carnal conflict against flesh and blood.
II Corinthians 10:3-4
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal…
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Yahweh has not armed Christians with guns and bullets. He has not told them to engage in carnal conflict with men and women who are ruled by evil. The only offensive weapon named by the apostle Paul that is given to the believer is “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). This is what “witnesses” do. They testify of the truth. The truth cuts through deception, lies, and darkness. The result is that some men and women are set free. Their eyes are opened to see the light of truth. They come into glorious union with the Son of God. Yet, the result in many cases is that men and women are offended by the truth. They respond with anger and violence against the light, for their hearts are evil and they prefer the darkness.
Seeing that the situation for Christians is perilous; that they are called to walk with meekness, forgiveness, and gentleness in the midst of wolves and serpents, it is requisite that they conduct themselves with wisdom and discernment. The Christian may be prohibited from meeting evil with armed force and violence, but they can flee. They can also foresee the snare of the adversary by exercising discernment, and thereby avoid unnecessary harm and suffering. We see this pattern in the lives of Christ and His disciples.
And after these things Yahshua was walking in Galilee; for He was unwilling to walk in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill Him.
But the Pharisees went out, and counseled together against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. But Yahshua, aware of this, withdrew from there.
“And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. But whenever they persecute you in this city, flee to the next…”
Innocent and defenseless creatures who are preyed upon by others must walk wisely, and exercise great discernment. Tragically, many Christians today are violating the will of God either by taking up arms to engage in violent defense against those who threaten them, or by failing to “be wise as serpents.” There is a time when all who are Christ’s witnesses in this earth will be called to endure suffering, but there is no merit in suffering needlessly because we were carelessly unaware of the schemes of the adversary. The goal of these writings is to exhort the saints in Christ to walk wisely in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. As I observe the response of many Christians to the media and government reports of events in Ferguson, MO, it is evident that many are falling far short of exercising discernment. They are playing right into the hands of the adversary.
Let me once more provide some background for understanding the agenda of evil men in this present hour. It is Satan’s goal to establish openly his rule over the entire earth. The Bible tells us that Satan will accomplish this purpose in these last days at the end of this age.
And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; and they worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?”
The beast is a human ruler of a world dominating government empowered by Satan to rule in the last days. As I have pointed out in recent writings, Yahweh set a very large obstacle in the way of Satan’s scheme to gather all men under his political rule. At the Tower of Babel Yahweh confused the speech of mankind, dividing them up into tongues and tribes and nations. These distinct groups made cooperation difficult. Nations arose, each with their own power and interests. Many of these nations were powerful in commerce and military might, making it difficult to establish dominance over them. In order for Satan to bring all humanity under a single global government, he must destroy the might and independence of sovereign nations.
Satan has worked to accomplish this along a number of lines. One tactic that we see employed to great effect in this hour is the diversification of what were formerly distinct people groups. A people who share the same ethnicity, the same ancestral language, and the same religion, are difficult to conquer. There is too much cohesiveness among homogeneous people groups. In recent centuries the dominant world powers have been European nations and the United States. In order to fracture the power of sovereign nations, Satan has been pushing an agenda of massive immigration.
As an example of this policy in all European nations, as well as America, I will use the nation of Sweden to illustrate this matter. Sweden is a prosperous Scandinavian country with a population of approximately nine million people. In 1970, one generation ago, the ethnic make-up of the country was approximately 93% Swedish, with only 7% of the population being of foreign origin. Some of those noted as “foreign” were from other Nordic countries (Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland) who share significant elements of their heritage. Thus, overall, Sweden experienced a high degree of ethnic uniformity as a nation.
Since 1970 Sweden has absorbed nearly two million immigrants. Many of them have come from countries that are very diverse, sharing very little in common with the ethnicity, language, religion, or culture of indigenous Swedes. Significant numbers of immigrants have come from Iraq, Poland, Yugoslavia, Iran, Somalia, and other nations. Today, one fifth of the population of Sweden comes from a foreign background.
These foreigners typically have much higher birth rates than the traditional Swedish population. This is true of all Western nations who are experiencing a rapid influx of immigrants. The result is that the homogeneous identity of Sweden has been fractured. The sense of national identity has been greatly diminished, for one out of every five Swedish citizens today does not share the traditional language and culture of this Scandinavian country. This has led to rise of factions within the nation. Many immigrants find it difficult to integrate with Swedish society, or to find high paying jobs. This leads to discontent and unrest as the immigrant population comes to believe they are not being treated justly, that they are standing upon an uneven economic and social footing. The traditional Swedish population is viewed with envy and resentment, and the government and police are viewed as oppressors. Not surprisingly, the fracturing of Sweden’s unified identity has led to civil unrest and rioting by the immigrant population.
In May of 2013 riots erupted in a suburb of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The action that some members of the media gave for the initial rioting was that a 69 year old Portuguese immigrant was shot and killed by the police. In some news reports, this is all you read about the Portuguese man, leaving the reader with the impression of an elderly gentleman being brutally set upon by overbearing police. Further investigation, however, reveals that this 69 year old man was wielding a machete and threatening people.
For a week following this event, riots occurred daily (or nightly) in Husby, the suburb mentioned. More than 100 cars and buildings were set afire and destroyed, including a library and a kindergarten. These riots have been a recurring event for more than a decade. Firemen will no longer go into these areas to put out fires because the residents assail them with stones and bricks. They must wait for police to come in and secure the area, consequently many buildings burn to the ground before the firemen arrive.
These new immigrants tend to settle in communities made up of their own ethnicity. Muslims gather with other Muslims, Arabs with Arabs, and Africans with Africans. This is a common occurrence wherever there are large numbers of immigrants in a country. In Sweden these Muslim and African immigrants often refuse to integrate with Swedish culture. They have their own stores and businesses in their communities where they speak their own language. When the police arrive to quell the riots, they are often met with the jeers of the migrants who tell them to go away, declaring that they do not belong there. The rioters declare that they will rule their own communities. The video at the following link is insightful.
I am reminded of the dream that Daniel interpreted for Nebuchadnezzar.
“And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle. And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.”
Satan knows that these diverse cultures will not adhere to one another. They are divided by language, race, religion, culture, and history. The result is the fracturing of the strength of sovereign nations. When nations experience chaos within, they are unable to withstand the forces without. They become susceptible to the power and might of the globalists.
Similar events have been seen in other European nations among their immigrant communities.
If these pictures seem oddly reminiscent of recent images from Ferguson, MO, it should not come as any great surprise. Satan, and those men and women to whom he has granted authority, are carrying out the same process of division in America as they are in other Western nations. Any country that does not have a strong, unified sense of national identity is easily manipulated. The global powers are always able to stir up resentment between factions. In doing so they are able to incite a nation to destroy itself from the inside. What is the role of the media and key persons in the government who are under the direction of the global elite? Their role is to stir the pot, roiling the waters of dissension, while making sure that no quick or certain resolution to a racial crisis is forthcoming. This is accomplished by appointing various individuals and media organizations to stake out conflicting perspectives on the issue at hand, even before the facts have been established.
Brothers and sisters, do not be deceived into thinking that liberal media outlets like MSNBC and CNN are the adversary, while conservative media organizations like FOX News and Breitbart are defenders of truth. FOX News is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch is the ultimate globalist. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission. One of the publishing companies he owns (Harper Collins) publishes the Satanic Bible.
Why would a globalist like Murdoch own FOX News which is the leading source for conservative news and the right wing political view in America? It is because Murdoch is cunning like a fox. The globalists are actively flooding Americans with opposite, polarizing views that are leading to an ever deepening rift between the citizens of the United States. Divide and conquer is the strategy, and FOX News plays a leading role in this scheme.
Millions of Americans are incensed as they listen to the talking heads on FOX News recount the injustices of the Obama government. The commentators are themselves highly emotional, expressing outrage over the liberal bias of the government and the trampling of Constitutional rights. Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Shepard Smith, Sean Hannity and others keep the emotions stirred over the outrages of America’s declining freedoms, justice, and prosperity.
At the same time, the liberal right wing media outlets are fanning the flames on the other side of the great American divide. This disparity of polarizing views is seen in abundance over the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson. One would think that responsible journalists would carefully search out the facts of a matter before broadcasting a report before a national, and worldwide audience. Journalistic restraint should be exercised to insure that no one is slandered, and to prevent irresponsible reporting from inflaming the passions of the citizenry resulting in further violence, injury, and property damage. Actual practice is just the opposite. Reporters, journalists, and news anchors routinely broadcast disinformation and extremely biased points of view that serve to engender strife among Americans. Occasions of rioting and racial strife are becoming increasingly commonplace.
At the same time, police departments and other local law enforcement agencies are disparaged, resulting in calls for Federal intervention. The Justice Department, FBI, and even the National Guard, are called upon to take over the role of local government, leading to increased disrespect for local law enforcement. This in turn precipitates greater acts of local rebellion and anarchy.
Brothers and sisters, I could provide reams of evidence to demonstrate the exceptional degree of bias and false reporting on the shooting in Missouri. Due to the time required to aggregate all the information, I must forgo doing so. My purpose in this post is not to prove the egregious and reckless actions of the media and government in this matter. Rather, it is to call your attention to the agenda that drives it all. The people of America are being manipulated by unseen powers that control all sides of the national conversation. Americans are being played one against the other, as servants of Satan skilled in cunning and deceit are sowing strife among the populace.
There are six things which Yahweh hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, a false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers.
The media and government are guilty of all seven. We live in an hour of abomination.
For additional contemplation of what is coming to America, and an example from recent history of what is soon to occur in this nation, I am providing the following evidence from the globalists complete subjugation of Yugoslavia. I believe I am correct in suggesting that the internal strife, civil war, and destruction of Yugoslavia by NATO’s military forces, present a parallel to the fate which will befall America. The United States is to be Balkanized. One of the key steps to breaking American up into smaller, more controllable states, is to foment division and civil war among various racial, political, economic, and religious lines. This work is already far advanced, awaiting the moment for the match to be struck to light the powder keg.
Yugoslavia, like the United States, was a nation of diverse ethnic and religious groups. The three largest divisions were the Serbs, Croats, and Muslims.
During the 45 year period from the end of World War II until the disintegration of Yugoslavia began in 1990, these diverse peoples had lived together in peace. It is reported that in the two decades leading up to 1980, the Gross Domestic Product of this Communist nation had experienced a year-over-year annual increase of 6.1 percent. Medical care was free for all people of Yugoslavia. The average life expectancy was 72 years, and 91% of the people were literate.
After the death of Marshall Tito, leaders of Yugoslavia foolishly began to borrow money from international creditors. When they ran into difficulty repaying the debt, the nation was forced to submit to debt restructuring agreements with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The policies of the IMF dictated that the country borrow even more money, placing an onerous burden of debt upon the nation. As the burden of debt payments increased, the central government had less money to distribute to the various republics that made up Yugoslavia. This began to fracture the economic unity of the nation. The fracturing occurred along ethnic lines. This is the frequent result of blended nations. It is an outcome Satan utilizes much to his advantage. He will merge together numerous people who were once independent, and then at the moment planned the hammer will fall, fracturing the fragile unity that existed. Even as iron and clay do not adhere to one another, so too can Satan count on nations comprised of multiple ethnicities, languages, and cultures, to tear themselves apart at his urging.
Satan always has human servants ready to facilitate the work of sowing discord among people groups. In the case of Yugoslavia, Satan found willing agents in the persons of American Presidents George H. Bush and Bill Clinton. Also, key members of Congress joined in this work, along with members of NATO, the United Nations, and the IMF. Having encouraged Yugoslavia to incur unbearable financial debt, the globalists began to use their economic powers to decimate the Yugoslavian economy, with the end goal of fracturing the unity of its multiple states.
On November 5, 1990 [the United States] Congress passed the 1991 Foreign Operations Appropriations Law 101-513. A section of this law, without previous warning, cut off all aid, credits and loans from the U.S. to Yugoslavia within 6 months. Also, the law demanded separate elections in each of the republics that made up Yugoslavia, requiring State Department approval of election procedures and results before aid to the separate republics would be resumed. In February 1991 the Council of Europe also demanded that Yugoslavia hold multi-party elections or face an economic blockade.
A CIA report that surfaced at the time this U.S. legislation was passed predicted that the results of this law would be that Yugoslavia would experience civil war within a year. The results of incurring international debt, and coming under the dictates of the IMF was that Yugoslavia’s economic growth reversed as it began contracting at an annual rate of 10% or more. By 1991 the government of Yugoslavia owed $31 billion in debt, over a million people were unemployed in a nation of 23 million people, and inflation was increasing annually by 200%. Adding to the distress on the people, the IMF ordered wages to be frozen in the country leaving multitudes unable to pay for basic necessities. This is an environment that is ripe for civil unrest and division.
Sanctions, a complete blockade of the nation, and a ban on commerce with the national corporations of Yugoslavia resulted in further hardships on the populace. These sanctions were established under the pretense of halting the sectarian conflict that had arisen in Bosnia, one of the republics of Yugoslavia. In actuality, however, these steps were taken to destroy the central government of Yugoslavia and break the nation into numerous segments.
Less than a month after the UN resolution was passed hundreds of thousands of workers had their wages reduced or received no wages. The U.S. Sixth Fleet enforced the blockade starting in 1992 and by 1996 74,000 ships had been halted. On June 25, 1991 Slovenia and Croatia declared their independence from Yugoslavia and by mid-1992 Yugoslavia was reduced to Serbia and Montenegro.
By October 1993 medical care had deteriorated and the effects were devastating. 90 percent of the country’s domestic drug production stopped. A six-year-old boy had leukemia but free medicines were no longer available. The first of 8 necessary treatments cost $812, more than twice the combined monthly salaries of his parents. Hospitals had to give unscreened blood transfusions. Medications for psychiatric patients ran out.
The average daily intake of calories had fallen by 28 percent compared to 1990 and 1.5 million people were classified as undernourished. The death rate in the capital, Belgrade, increased from 79 to 977 per 100,000 in the same period. Two months later over 60 percent of the country’s work force was unemployed and the average monthly income had dropped from $500 to $15.
A combination of economic distress, and the fanning of sectarian differences, led to civil war in the nation as the various regions began to declare their independence. The United States, under the Presidency of Bill Clinton, spoke of the humanitarian need to end the civil unrest in Yugoslavia. The solution proposed was to bomb the nation into oblivion. The American led bombing campaign was called Operation Noble Anvil. There was nothing noble, however, about the destruction America’s military wrought on the people of this nation. The people were pounded to dust upon the anvil of NATO.
For 78 days, around 600 aircraft flew about 3,000 sorties. Thousands of tons of ordnance were dropped, as well as hundreds of ground-launched cruise missiles…
Nearly everything was struck. Massive destruction and disruption followed. Known or suspected military sites were targeted. So were civilian sites and infrastructure unrelated to military operations. They included:
• power plants;
• civilian transportation;
• telecommunications facilities;
• roads, bridges and rail lines;
• fuel depots;
• a TV station;
• China’s Belgrade embassy willfully on a false pretext (claiming a mistake didn’t wash);
• government offices;
• historic landmarks; and more.
Cities, villages and other areas were struck throughout the country. NATO began running out of targets. It didn’t matter. Bombing continued relentlessly…
An estimated $100 billion in damage was inflicted. Environmental contamination was extensive.
President Bill Clinton Called This “Humanitarian Intervention.”
Part of the environmental contamination was due to the use of depleted uranium slugs being shot from fighter jets. The ground has been polluted with this radioactive material which has been linked to high rates of birth defects and numerous illnesses among the populace.
In the end, the globalists accomplished their goals. A sovereign nation that did not accept the financial and capitalist policies of the global rulers was dissolved into manageable segments. The U.S. established numerous bases in the region, including Camp Bondsteel which is the largest military base in the Balkans. For all practical purposes, Yugoslavia has become an occupied country where the U.S. and NATO militaries dictate the political and economic policies of the people.
It is relevant for American Christians to understand the procedure the globalists employ to enslave a people and bring them under their control. I am quite certain that a similar experience awaits the citizens of the United States. By means of economic collapse, sectarian strife, civil war, and the overbearing response of the U.S. military which will result in massive numbers of dead and maimed and a crippling destruction of property and infrastructure, the United States will devolve into the Divided States of America. America is doomed to be Balkanized.
Department of Homeland Security – Regions Map
I cannot predict whether America will be broken up along the same lines as shown in the Department of Homeland Security map above, but I believe she will be divided. I have written in numerous posts about the preparation the government has been making for civil war in this nation. Following are a few pertinent links.
Others Are Preparing – Should You?

Internment is Coming
The Father has also been testifying through signs what must shortly come to pass in this nation. On Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at the Atlanta Braves baseball team’s home opener, the pre-game fireworks struck the American flag and set it afire.
It is not difficult to perceive a parable in this occurrence. Before every Major League baseball game in America the national anthem is performed. The lyrics to the song end with the words:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
For more on this sign, see the post titled Catching Fire.
There was a huge United States flag that was ripped in two on November 17, 2013 during a NFL football game in Buffalo, New York.
The same day a tornado struck Washington, IL, giving a poignant sign of the destruction to come to America’s old order.
Washington, IL Tornado
For more on these two concurrent signs, see the following article.
Another sign of America’s collapse was observed when the United States flag fell to the ground at the 2012 London Olympics as America’s national anthem was played. During the medal ceremony for women’s tennis, the U.S. flag came loose and fell to the ground. Amazingly, this occurred right on cue at the point in the song when the words “our flag was still there” would have been sung.
There was also the fall of Miss USA at the Miss Universe Pageant two years in a row. Two different women fell on stage before an international audience, presaging the fall of America before the nations.
Rachel Smith (2007)/Crystal Stewart (2008)
These are just a few of the signs Yahweh has been giving to warn His people of what is coming to this nation that boasts of being the world’s last super power. Pride comes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. These are all things I have shared with the people of God on many previous occasions. What I want to add to this testimony is a revelation of how the media is being used to move forward the plans of Satan to abase all nations before him in order that he might establish a single global government.
What is the media’s plan, or policy, regarding reporting on issues relating to racism? Why do they neglect black on white violence while giving inordinate amounts of press coverage to white or Hispanic on black violence? Why did the media turn the Trayvon Martin shooting into such a spectacle? Why are they giving massive coverage to the events in Ferguson, Missouri? Why has there been egregious mis-reporting of the facts in both cases? Is it not evident that the media’s goal is precisely that which they are accomplishing? They are determined to engender sectarian strife along racial lines in this nation.
Much falsehood has been published regarding these events, and every lie is intended to produce outrage among one race or another. In Ferguson, MO, both whites and blacks are being manipulated. Outside influences are entering in to fan the flames of racial division. The media has become polarized with some networks inciting black outrage, and others white indignation. All of them are fomenting hatred and fear. The result is a spike in gun purchases, neighbors arming themselves against other people in their communities.
At the same time that racial divisions are being deepened between whites and blacks, the government and media are acting in collusion to cause a further division between Hispanics and other races. Immense press coverage is being given to the issue of illegal immigration, and along with it there is much fear mongering. Reports of illegal aliens infected with diseases are being given much press coverage. Also, links to Mexican drug cartels and violent gang membership are being highlighted among those crossing the border. This further creates an atmosphere of fear and loathing toward people of Hispanic descent who are entering America, and even toward those who have been here legally for many years. The government is both creating the crisis by refusing to secure the border, and they are exploiting it by using it to divide Americans. All the while, the media plays one side against the other, stirring the pot of racial strife.
What is occurring is very similar to what occurred in Yugoslavia as ethnic differences were exploited to sow division and weaken the nation. By turning the people upon one another, they were unable to stand in unity against an outside enemy. Consequently, they were easily conquered and occupied by foreign agents.
Regularly I am encountering articles in the press about the increase of gun ownership among Americans. Some naively think that this is actually a safeguard against tyrannical acts of America’s government. Some believe the government’s designs to restrict gun ownership have failed, having produced just the opposite effect as gun sales have skyrocketed. Brothers and sisters, I assure you the goals of evil men have not failed in this regard. There are those in power who want Americans to arm themselves. They want to instigate sectarian violence where Americans begin to slaughter one another. This makes their ultimate goals all the more easy to obtain. They also want Americans to engage in armed resistance against the government, for this will provide the excuse to unleash overwhelming weapons of war upon America’s citizens.
A government that controls the most powerful military in the world, whose military spending exceeds that of all other nations combined, is not afraid of a populace that has guns and rifles. When the government is shelling people with mortars, bombing them from airplanes far beyond the reach of those on the ground, sending in Tomahawk Cruise Missiles, blasting them to pieces with drone aircraft, attacking them with tanks and armored vehicles, and bringing out the full force of an advanced military, they have little to worry about when men and women have guns. One need look no further than what happened to the civilian populations of Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya, or what is presently occurring in Ukraine, to see that local militias will never meet the might of a government like America on an equal footing. They will be sheep for the slaughter.
Brothers and sisters, as I look at the news I see this nation being primed for a great fall. In the days ahead, the slaughter on America’s soil will be great. Ironically, the citizens of the nation will perform the will of the global masters whom they claim to despise. They will rise up brother against brother, and people against people; maiming, stealing, murdering, destroying.
As Christians, we are to be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves. Do not let the talking heads of the media, or the wicked politicians of this nation, manipulate you into hating others. As Christians, our victory will come not by slaughtering those who are evil, but by returning good for evil.
“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.”
Be wise. Be discerning. Choose love.
