…and that’s why stuff like this happens? This is why Christians need to be wise as serpents yet innocent as doves. Don’t let the liars lie to you. Click on the link or the image to view.
A fantastic (s)Election Day message from our friend and brother Matthew Dyer of Christian America Ministries (christianamericaministries.org), still worth hearing as the (s)election nonsense draws out. In whom do YOU put your trust?

If you were a totalitarian dictator looking to conform society to your will, how would you do it?
Maybe you would break the people’s spirit. You would do this by instilling them with fear of what happens if they fail to obey. After all, a dictator’s entire premise is fear – fear of himself, fear of an outside force, or both. Typically, that fear involves the threat of death – again, either death by the dicator’s hand, or death by an outside force.
Then, maybe you would make them completely dependent on you for their protection and provision. This would be best accomplished through giving them something to be afraid of. You would create a boogeyman, a villain, an impending danger seemingly outside yourself. This boogeyman would be your own creation, preferably imaginary, so you could shape it and control it to your purposes.
Also, you might erase their individualities — reshape their minds and characters, making them empty vessels for your will. They would no longer think for themselves, no longer act based on evidence which they themselves had found and considered. No, you would turn them into biological robots who would do nothing outside the programming which you would feed into them. They would become mindless slave drones who would never dream of disobeying you.
It sounds like a perfect scenario for an insane dictator, doesn’t it? Maybe a little like something from a science fiction movie?
But it’s real. All of it. And it’s happening now. It’s happening all around you.
Let me show you.
September 11, 2001, was a turning point in society. From that point forward, fear of death became widespread throughout Europe and North America. Fear of terrorism spurred people into the arms of government, who willingly responded by removing key freedoms.
The Patriot Act established spying on a grand scale. The entire public, from that point forward, fell into a surveillance state. All phones and computers watched and monitored by massive mainframe computers and AI housed at NSA facilities. The TSA became normal at airports, searching people like criminals and harassing innocent travelers. From then on, identification has become necessary for opening a post office box or bank account. Banking, traveling, and mere online activity became subject to control and monitoring.
And the people, scared for their lives, accepted every bit of it. The state promised security – all we had to do in return was give up a little essential liberty. People who are afraid will do just about anything. Scare them badly enough, and they’ll accept things they wouldn’t have dreamed of accepting before. And that is exactly what happened after September 11, 2001.
The post 9/11 world was just one step. It’s interesting, though, that from the ashes of the World Trade Center arose a new structure – the ONE WORLD Trade Center. Could it have been tribute to a new world being ushered in by the powerful families of our time?
Fast forward almost twenty years, and we find ourselves at another 9/11, only this one is called “Covid 19”.
Now, we’re being told if we don’t isolate ourselves, if we don’t wear masks, if we don’t stay six feet apart, if we don’t obsessively wash our hands, we’re going to die.
Funny, there’s that threat of death again.
Lockdowns are being imposed on entire countries and cities, and we’re told it’s for our own good.
I’ve heard that term before: “lockdown”. Where have I heard it?
Oh, that’s right. Prisons have lockdowns. According to the website, laws.com, “A prison lockdown is a period in which the prisoners will be confined to certain areas and restricted certain kinds of activities or liberties.”
So, for example, being restricted to confines of your home, being allowed to go out for exercise and necessities only at certain times, and only for a specified length of time, and being forbidden to gather in groups. In other words, chronic social isolation.
House arrest is a thing, after all.
What kind of effect does that have on a person?
Psychology Today has an article on solitary confinement, such as what we sometimes see in prisons, and it says,
“One of the most remarkable effects of chronic social isolation, as in the extreme case of solitary confinement, is the decrease in the size of the hippocampus, the brain region related to learning, memory, and spatial awareness. The sustained stress of extreme isolation leads to a loss of hippocampal plasticity, a decrease in the formation of new neurons, and the eventual failure in hippocampal function. On the other hand, the amygdala increases its activity in response to isolation. This area mediates fear and anxiety, symptoms enhanced in prisoners in solitary confinement.”
Do you honestly think all these experts, medical professionals, and bureaucrats are so stupid they don’t know all this?
If you wanted to people to fall completely into a culture of fear, and to lose their ability to critically think about what you’ve been telling them, social isolation would be a perfect way to do it.
But you need to go a bit further – erase their individualities. One big way in which we tell one person from another is by looking at their face – so how could you get everyone to, say, oh I don’t know… maybe cover their faces?
Maybe you could issue mask mandates?
It’s been well established that most world leaders follow such magic practices as Kabbalah, branching into extreme practices that reflect even in the architecture and design of their homes and cities, and even in their use of numbers.
Keep this in mind as we read this excerpt from the Encyclopedia Britannica, on wearing masks:
“The person who wears the mask is also considered to be in direct association with the mask’s spirit force and is consequently exposed to like personal danger of being affected by it. For the sake of protection, the wearer… is required to follow certain sanctioned procedures in using the mask. (Perhaps like self-isolation, hand-washing, and social distancing?) In some respects he plays the role of an actor in cooperation or collaboration with the mask. Without the dance and posturing routines that the mask wearer performs, often to the accompaniment of music, the mask would remain a representation without a full life-force. (Again, could those “posturing routines” include hand-washing and social distancing?) The real drama and power of its form is the important contribution of the wearer. Covered by the mask and costume, the performer loses his previous identity and assumes a new one. (Read that again!) Upon donning the mask, the wearer sometimes undergoes a psychic change and as in a trance assumes the spirit character depicted by the mask. Usually, however, the wearer skillfully becomes a “partner” of the character he is impersonating, giving to the mask not only an important spark of vitality by the light flashing from his own eyes but also bringing it alive by his movements and poses. But often the wearer seems to become psychologically one with the character he is helping to create. He seems to become an automaton, without his own will, which has become subservient to that of the personage of the mask. At all times there remains some important… association between the mask and its wearer.”
Wear the mask! Wash your hands! Don’t touch each other! Social distance! Self-isolate!
Is this starting to sound like a bizarre ritual to you yet? Consider that masks are about as effective against disease as a screen door is against smoke – as admitted by Dr Fauci himself!
So what’s the point of a mask? The only reason – the only possible reason – is that’s it’s a rite or ritual imposed on the public by a Kabbalist elite who want to make us after their image – to usher the masses into a “new normal”. How many times have you heard THAT phrase?
This phrase isn’t being used by accident. We are being programmed to accept an entirely new world.
In other words, being locked up and cooped up inside anything – whether a prison cell or your own home – has the effect of affecting your ability to think, to retain information, and to control your emotions.
Again, the great driving force to make us all comply with this bizarre ritual is FEAR.
In George Orwell’s novel, 1884, the Communist powers kept the people in a constant state of fear and compliance by firing missiles into the populace and blaming a fictional bad guy. The people learned to fear and hate the boogeyman, and trust and love the very system that was slowly killing them through oppression and tyranny.
In the same way, today’s world leaders and their “expert” lackeys are luring people into a new world order, a globalist plan in which people will be trained to comply without question – their wills broken – their minds reprogrammed – their individuality erased.
So what can we do about it?
With so much power behind these occult elites, we can’t help but wonder what an ordinary person like you or I can do.
First: Don’t comply. Throw away your mask, stand up, and don’t let some clown in a three-piece suit, who’s never worked a day in his life, tell you what to do. You are an individual with a mind and a soul. You were made free. Act free.
Second, recognize that you were made in the image of God, NOT in the image of anyone or anything else. Genesis 1:27 — “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” You have no obligation to follow their commands, but every obligation to obey the commands of your Creator.
God says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
In other words, it’s time to decide who your god is – the State and its army of so-called “experts”, or YHWH God, the creator who put you here to reflect His perfect will.
Are you a Christian? Has your church obeyed the mandates to shut down and close their doors during the planned-demic? God says in Hebrews 10:25 that we are not to forsake the assembly. The State says we should, using a vastly overblown and overhyped virus as an excuse.
Which is your God?
The State says we need to avoid touching each other. The Bible commands the laying on of hands for healing. Which is your God?
The State says we need to hide away in our homes without interaction. The Bible commands that we be hospitable, letting people into our homes, visiting the poor and sick. Which is your God?
The State insists that we participate in a bizarre occult ritual. The Bible forbids the practice of witchcraft. Which is your God?
The State promotes itself and its approved sources as the end-all of knowledge and understanding and wisdom. The Bible says Almighty God is the fountain of all wisdom and knowledge. So when the two contradict – which is your god?
Yes, there is another world order coming – the TRUE world order – ushered in by Christ Himself and his saints, crushing the kingdoms of men forever. On which side will you be when he comes? Cowering in fear and loaded down with compliance to His enemies, or standing free, eagerly awaiting his liberation?
Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. – Jude 1:14-15
It’s your choice, and there’s no time like the present to make it. Rather than bend to the laws of men, learn and obey the laws of Almighty God and recognize Jesus Christ as His Messiah, the King of Kings, the one and only judge and lawgiver!
Repeatedly the Bible says not to fear men, nor to trust in men. Trust in the laws of God! And when they conflict with the laws of men, make the right choice. Stand with the Almighty. If we’re so afraid of a virus that we can’t stand firm on the commands of God, then we certainly have no right to stand with those who faced lions in the arena, or rebuked kings to their faces, or died in dungeons, all for the sake of truth.
The days are dark. Now is the time to break free of that darkness and shine!
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. — Proverbs 28:1
While everyone is panic-buying toilet paper and hand sanitizer, and cleaning out grocery store shelves, it’s important that we take the time to think clearly. As a matter of fact, we should have been thinking clearly all along.
Anyone who is a student of history should know that the status quo, no matter how long it has gone on, never continues. It changes, sometimes suddenly. This is one of those moments. The wise have understood this and have been storing up for that “rainy day”, much like the ant. Buying bulk goods, stocking up on necessaries, and raising and storing one’s own food is a wise action to take during times of plenty so times of want don’t catch us by surprise.
But all that aside, the fear over a virus has nearly everyone in a panic. Mainstream media (and many alternative sources) are harping constantly on the dangers of this new virus, and people are reacting like it’s the new Bubonic Plague. Never mind that its kill rate is no worse than regular flu. Elderly, premature children, folks who are already sick or at least have compromised immune systems, and Asians have proven to be most at risk. In other words, it’s another virus like the many others we deal with on a regular basis.
But we are being told to panic. There’s an agenda here. I could go into all that, but let me just sum it up by referring you to the tale of Chicken Little. Don’t fall for the panic — because the panic is far more deadly than the disease.
To give you some idea of how truly deadly and dangerous this COVID-19 is, and what our Fearless Leaders aren’t telling us:
Yesterday (March 17, 2020), when the Prezi-dunce addressed a room full of reporters, the reporters were made to sit spaced out, with one empty seat between them. Once the room was filled using this protocol, no further reporters were allowed in.
Chump entered the room and commented on how nice it was that everyone was practicing “social distancing”.
Meanwhile, he and the people with him behind the podium were busy standing shoulder to shoulder and whispering in each other’s ears — zero “social distancing” whatsoever.
Think about what that means.
This is an engineered scare. The people telling us to be scared are hardly afraid themselves. Be smart. Don’t be hoodwinked.
Personally, I’m more concerned about the economic and governmental ramifications of this whole thing. The steps being considered will bankrupt millions and open the door to martial law on a level only before seen in warzones and openly Communist countries. I pray it doesn’t happen, but we’re a sinful people. We deserve every bit of it.
But Christians shouldn’t fall for the trickery (which, by the way, is becoming increasingly easy to spot — they’re getting sloppy and don’t care because they know the public will believe anything). Be smart. Be prayerful. Focus on the goal. When you’re told to be afraid, know they want you afraid for a reason, and never a good one.
An intriguing tidbit to consider. I’m not putting this out there as some prophetic announcement, but it’s worth watching and considering.
The star Betelgeuse, in Orion’s right shoulder, has been dimming noticeably in recent months, according to astronomers. Astrophysicists see this as an indication that Betelgeuse may go supernova soon. If this were to happen, it is claimed, Betelgeuse will, for a time, become brighter than our moon at full phase, illuminating the night with startling magnitude.
According to Bullinger in “The Witness of the Stars”, “Betelgeuse” is Arabic and means “the coming of the Branch” (Isaiah 11:1). In all fairness, “Betelgeuse” is also understood to have an entirely different translation: “the hand of the Central One” (“Central One” being the old Arabic name for Orion).
But if Bullinger is correct, could we be about to witness an astronomical occurrence warning those with eyes to see of an impending historical event? I don’t know. It will be interesting to see if these astro-eggheads are accurate at all in any of their statements. It would be further interesting to see if, like the Star of Bethlehem, the heavens do something spectacular to announce the Second Advent of Christ.
Again, this is not to say Christ’s return is right around the corner. But if we keep our ears to the ground and our eyes to the sky, who knows what we might see.
Regardless, best to do some introspection and get right with God as best we can. Never a bad time for that.
"Where there is no vision, a people perish, but he who keeps the Law, happy is he." -- Proverbs 29:18
For all the talk about “winning” during the Trump era, conned-servatives have precious little to show for it.
Gun control has made great strides, the socialist nature of the American Republic continues to oppress, the war machine grinds on, and sexual perversion and infanticide continue apace. Education spirals. Foreign invaders pour across our borders. Statues of Baphomet go up and Ten Commandments plaques come down. Muh Constitution, for all the cheering and adulation it receives, fades steadily into the background. And that’s just scratching the surface.
If anything, it seems the ones “winning” are the liberal posse. They’re the ones who’ve even managed to infiltrate the conned-servative side with their Cultural Marxist ideaology and talking heads who embrace “alternative lifestyles”. The liberals have thrown up a staunch wall of resistance against any and all things “conservative” while the conned-servatives keep nudging the leftist floodgates open little by little.
In short, “conservatism” has become nothing more than a bad joke.
Consider the verse at the top of this post.
Liberals have a clearly defined agenda, a vision toward which they are collectively (pun intended) marching. They have zero tolerance for anything contrary to said agenda. They plow over all resistance with everything from smear campaigns to labeling to screaming naked in the street. They have the opposition (such as it is) cowed to the point that conned-servatives hurriedly backpedal when accused of “racism”, “bigotry”, “fascism”, or “intolerance”. They call themselves “progressives”, and not without reason. They are the group making progress toward the goal outlined by the likes of Marx and Mao.
What vision do “conservatives” have?
They talk a lot about maybe going back to the halcion days of the 1940s.
Well, that was the era of Democrat FDR, so maybe the 50’s.
Nah, that was the tail end of the bogeyman Jim Crow, and no conned-servative wants to be associated with that, so maybe the 60’s.
Hippies. Ew. Nope, definitely the 70’s.
Wait, the 70’s saw Jimmy Carter and “Energy Crisis”. How about the 80’s?
Ah, Ronald Reagan. God incarnate right there. Aaaaah, the 80’s…
Although the 2020s are looking pretty dang awesome with the MAGA Messiah and his classy porn star wife kicking back in the Oval Orifice. After all, we’re #winning.
The above is of course laced with hyperbole, but you get the point. The well-defined objective of the left contrasted with the nebulous goals of the right make for a downright stark contrast. The liberals have a goal, and are pushing for it with gusto, while the conned-servatives are busy waffling and compromising, barely contesting for the status quo.
No wonder they’re getting their Don’t Tread On Mes handed to them.
Conservatism is a weak position at best, morally spineless, a laughable contestant against the Marxist behemoth in the arena of culture. Liberalism knows what it wants and goes for it with everything it has. Conservatism clings to dead “founding fathers” and an even more dead Constitution. They have no vision, and are doomed to perish.
So is that it? Do we just throw in the towel and let the minions of Marx have their way?
Rather, we need to do what any good tactician in the field of battle would do: Recognize that the tactics thus far have failed, and find another way. It takes swallowing a lot of pride, but it’s better to admit a mistake than to keep going down the path of futility.
I argue that one main key (not the entire solution, but a main point), is a vision.
A vision for something even more defined, bigger, and better supplied than “progressivism”.
Further, a vision that has been utilized before, and succeeded.
Christ and his apostles pursued the vision of Christendom, the rule of Christ over the nations with a rod of iron, the establishment of his Law and judgment over the entire earth. As a result, they destroyed the unbeatable Roman Empire and crushed the head of the red serpent embodied in the Pharisees and their ilk.
“Conservatives” need to stop conserving and start laying waste to the current order by bringing in the great, divine vision of Christ:
"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." -- Matthew 28:18
Don’t wanna be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information age of hysteria
It’s calling out to idiot America
-- Green Day, "American Idiot"
The very word sends paroxysms of rage through every conservative.
But do conservatives know what socialism is?
I recently had a discussion with a die-hard MAGA “conservative” about socialism, and the results were laughable only because laughing kept me from spiraling into the depths of misery over the state of education (or lack thereof) in America.
Broken down to its simplest terms, socialism is largely understood to be a governmental system in which the means of production is controlled by the state and in which there is no such thing as private property.
The government claims the right to take however much of your wages it wants, and whatever of your property it wants.
It’s simple logic: If the government claims the right to your wages and property, it therefore follows that you yourself have no claim to them at all. Frederic Bastiat, in his book, The Law, discusses socialism in the following terms:
“But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.”
Everything that the government does and provides is funded through taxation, which is the government’s claim to your wages. It takes from you, and appropriates those funds to whatever it sees fit. Everything the government “provides” to its citizens is first taken from other citizens. The government is not its own resource. It requires a host from which to leech, and that host is those over whom it rules.
All government programs, including tax-funded education, military, infrastructure, medical care, etc are funded through the confiscation of assets, namely, taxation and eminent domain. Even the confiscation of “contraband” is the government claiming a right to that to which it has determined you do not. If your church is a 501(c)3 non-profit, it has submitted to the government yoke and given the state authority over it, thus making it a socialist organization.
Even Social Security is socialist by nature. Yes, we pay in to it, but most of us have no choice, meaning the government is wresting your assets from you in order to fund it. Further, rather than maintaining a fund with your name on it, all social security funds go into a pool from which pensions are drawn. You could do a much better job simply tucking those same funds into an envelope under your mattress until retirement, but the state in its infinite wisdom determines who gets how much and when from a collective fund into which you have paid. You are at the mercy of the state for access to your own money.
In trying to explain all these things to the die-hard MAGA conned-servative mentioned above, he argued (without evidence) that all these things are in fact NOT socialist, and that I was in fact a socialist myself for suggesting that all these programs, which are alive and well in the United States, were socialist.
Just take a moment to absorb the levels of stupidity here. In arguing against these government programs because they are socialist, I had convinced this Mensa candidate that I was a dirty Socialist myself.
How had this come to be?
After talking with and observing other conned-servatives, and pondering my many interactions with others in the past, I came to an unsettling conclusion. Their definition of “socialism” can be summed up simply as: Anything or anyone that questions the deity and inerrancy of muh American Republic, muh Republican Party, muh Constitution, or their latest Messiah, muh Donald Trump.
Obama’s Affordable Care Act was socialism because he was a Democrat, but Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” wasn’t because he was a Republican.
Hillary needs to be hung from a lamp post because she’s a Democrat, but let’s overlook Bret Kavanaugh’s liberal actions, because he’s a “conservative” justice.
KGB were bad because they were Russian, but the CIA is totally cool.
Obama’s empty chatter about gun control is damnable treason, but Trump’s bump stock ban and talk of “confiscate first, due process later” is “4D chess” (something we know is really clever and awesome but just can’t explain).
The fact is this: Because people’s standards of right and wrong have been reduced to the right/left paradigm, they have built on shifting sand. These same conned-servatives who rage about the sodomites and transvestites on the left love and adore the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Blaire White on the right because, well, they’re “conservative”, and that’s all you need to know. Right and wrong have been cast aside in favor of right or left. Morals are determined by politics, rather than by divine decree.
“Socialism” is determined by whether you’re a good ‘Murican, rather than its actual definition.
At the end of it all, the lesson is as follows: Idolatry leads to stupidity and ignorance. Americans have made the United State Republic their Mount Olympus, the parties their Olympians and Titans, presidents their god-kings, congresspeople and governors their pantheon of deities. Rather than thinking critically based on fact, they react based on political affiliation.
A nation of idiots can only end in destruction.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
– II Thessalonians 2:11-12
Given the track record of mainstream media (and often, alternative media) we need to take everything we hear with a generous helping of salt. The latest big news, Coronavirus, has a lot of folks at least mildly concerned, if not outright freaking out. Some say the official numbers of infected and dead are inflated, while others say the figures are downplayed. Nonofficial information out of China is claiming that it’s far worse than what we’re being told — but considering the tight clamp China keeps on its internet, even that is suspect. Is it info or disinfo?
If we’re honest, we can’t say one way or another with absolute certainty. We live in an empire of lies. Everything is suspect.
However, what do we know for certain?
We can say with certainty that with the recent scares (such as measles) obviously engineered to push people toward vaccinating, this event opens up the door for more fear-based propaganda, if not legally-mandated vaccination. All the talk of quarantines also paves the way to implementation of Agenda 21 tactics, herding people out of rural locations and into the cities.
Is that what will happen? Nobody can say for sure. But we do know this is a prime opportunity for all of it.
What else do we know for certain? We know God is sovereign, and whether these things are real or not, they’re happening either by his allowance or his design, especially as judgment on his wayward people. Whether it’s true pestilence, or irrational fear driving the chickens into the fox’s lair, it’s judgment. We know this all fits the parameters of Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28.
If we’re wise, we’ll prepare as best we can to ward off disease by eating healthy whole foods and ensuring that our nutritional intake is as good as we can make it. We can ingest iodine, colloidal silver, garlic, and other natural antibiotics. We could even take steps to ensure that our homes are set for isolation in the event of a true pandemic.
But in the end all that is pointless if we haven’t taken serious steps in getting right with God. Humbling ourselves before God and doing all in our power to live in obedience to him is huge. Fasting and prayer also certainly are not unreasonable. Honest self-examination of our hearts and lives in the light of God’s Word is important. If we are not covered in the blood, now is the time to believe, repent, confess him, and be immersed in water for the remission of sins.
This is not to say that all this will guarantee survival in the case of a deadly pandemic, but it should put us at ease knowing that whatever happens to us, we are God’s and can look forward to more beyond this life.
Furthermore, we need to remember that all this is not about us, but about Christ and his Kingdom. It’s about the glory of God. We need to focus on that work and not let fear of disease and death distract us. Christians are part of something so much bigger and better than themselves, and we need to stay the course. Be the best worker in his kingdom you can be, and trust that the Master will look after his own, as Christ himself has promised.
Coronavirus: Hoax or pandemic? We will know eventually. But let’s not lose our heads in the meantime. Take the precautions you can, and leave the rest to the decision of the Almighty.
The gun debate has raged on for a long time, but just as with any other aspect of politics, what we see come to the forefront is typically smoke and mirrors, a distraction from what’s really going on.
For example, when everyone was up in arms (pun intended) over the red-flag law in Virginia, that same state, as well as the Federal government, quietly pushed through other legislation. It happens every time. When the government and media create an uproar in one quarter, they’re performing a massive slight of hand to distract us from another issue.
They know guns are a sensitive topic on both sides of the political paradigm. They know whenever any gun legislation comes up, all hell will break loose. Therefore, they’d be fools not to utilize it to the utmost.
And they do.
But it goes deeper than that. As soon as a Democratic governor or president assumes office, gun and ammo sales skyrocket. It happens like clockwork. It especially happens when that candidate has made promises to take action on gun proliferation.
One prominent example is Obama. The second it looked like he was going to win, people ran out and ordered weapons until the manufacturers were backlogged for months and even years. This happened a number of times during the Obama presidency.
But here’s the kicker. Did you know Obama and many other “anti-gun” politicians own shares in major firearm and ammunition manufacturing companies? So while conned-servatives thought they were defying those goshdarn Democrats, they were in reality helping those same goshdarn Democrats make bank. I honestly would not be surprised at all if Northam and/or other Democrat (and even Republican) politicians in Virginia are busy admiring their shareholdings at the very moment of this writing.
In other words, while conned-servatives kicked up a ruckus about their “Second Amendment rights”, not only did they fail to stop the red-flag bill from passing, but they also helped line the pockets of the very people they thought they were fighting.
But don’t these politicians realize that all these gun purchases are going straight into the hands of the people? Doesn’t it worry them that the populace are arming themselves?
Hardly. And for multiple reasons.
1: As I pointed out two posts earlier, the people have shown a greater affinity for running when the chips are down, than for standing up and fighting to the last man no matter what the cost. Men have lost heart in today’s cushy, effeminate society. Courage is forgotten. With widespread consumption of soy on top of continual propaganda portraying the government strongmen as being unbeatable, the average American male has been cowed. He hasn’t had to physically fight for anything, let alone freedom, in a very long time. That ship has sailed. For now. This is in keeping with Deuteronomy 28:25 and 32:30. We go one way against our enemies and flee seven ways before them because our Lord has given us up. All the weapons in the world don’t make a lick of difference in that situation.
2: When Trump banned bump stocks, conned-servatives largely accepted and defended this infringement on their “Second Amendment rights”. If Obama or some other Democrat had done it, they would have been outraged, but because their golden boy had issued the executive order, it was downright heresy to suggest that it was anything other than a good idea. Bottom line, Americans are stupid. And politicians know it. When we reject the wisdom of God’s Law, we’ll fall for the most ludicrous things. And stupid, easily manipulated people don’t pose any more of a threat when they have guns. Just feed them the right lines and they’ll lie right down as the doormats they are. Plus, what are the “back the badge” crowd going to do when the cops are used to confiscate their guns? Their brains will short out just trying to figure out whether to fight for their 2A “rights” or lick LEO boots.
3: The enemies of our people understand how our God works. In many cases they understand Scripture better than we do. As Balaam taught Balak to make Israel sin so they could fall prey to Midian, so have our enemies caused us to sin through their entertainment and schools, thus allowing us to fall prey to their devices. Once we fall away from our God, we are exposed and vulnerable. Weapons become futile trinkets.
So while we allow the politicians to lead us one way and then another with their games, and we respond defensively only to fill their coffers, our enemies laugh. They don’t care how many weapons we stockpile. Without our God, we might as well be armed with spitballs.
The only way to truly strike fear into the hearts of our enemies is to take a stand for the Gospel and the kingdom of Christ, as the apostles did. The apostles were truly feared by the ruling powers of their day, far more than they fear the loudmouthed 2Aers spewing Jefferson quotes and waving AR-15s around.
One thing that has historically proven far more effective than weapons is ideas. Ideas capture the mind and change the heart. Ideas are infectious, and completely change the course of history. Further, ideas founded in truth are unstoppable. Any regime can use the force of arms, but ideas are more effective than the most equipped army.
Christ has given us the Sword of the Spirit. With that and faith, we can subdue kingdoms and put armies to flight (Hebrews 11:33-34). Stripped of it, however, we can do little more than serve the very people who want to destroy us. Unbeknownst to conned-servatives, they are feeding and serving the same people they claim to be resisting. They’re being played. Without the Shepherd, they’re lost sheep. If any of the folks in Richmond on January 20th had had the benefit of the Shepherd, they would have seen the idolaters and sodomites in the crowd and immediately left, knowing the entire event did not have the covering of God. They would have recognized the futility, foolishness, and yes, even wickedness of the entire situation.
Meanwhile, the bureaucrats continued doing the godless things bureaucrats do, knowing that the people gathered outside were powerless to stop them, and were in fact dancing to the Piper’s tune. They knew people had gone out and purchased weapons by the thousands, but it didn’t bother them at all. They had known it would happen. They had banked on it.
So while conned-servatives celebrate their imaginary “victory”, the bureaucrats laugh at them.
And those with a heart for truth and righteousness, who see what’s really going on, weep.
