Last weekend, after posting my thoughts on Memorial Day, I got a phone call from someone, another writer, who wanted to talk about my article, and another idea he had.
I had to be brief as I was in the middle of barbecuing supper for my family, but he did get a chance to discuss something that has been pestering me all week. My friend has been looking for a way to write an article that ties everything all together, in simple terms that everyone could understand.
The thing is, so have I. I have read up on all the ‘so called’ conspiracy theories. I have read about the CFR, the Bildeburgers, the Illuminati, and I have tried to find a way to put it all together so that people can see that their government is being controlled by forces who do not have our best interests in mind.
Then yesterday, as I was at Lowes, helping my wife select some geraniums for our yard, it hit me, I think I know how to tie all this together. You see, I was focused on the wrong thing.
I was trying too hard to tie the Bildeburgers to the CFR and to the Federal Reserve, to the House of Rothschild ad nauseam. I was attempting to trace family lines, who married who, who owned what, and how they came up with this diabolical scheme to create this complex web of organizations designed to bring about the downfall of our republic.
How to tie it all together had bothered me for so long that I had long since given up the idea of even attempting to do so, then my friend called and got me thinking about it again. Yesterday the answer came to me, and it was so simple, that if I could, I would kick myself in the buttocks for missing it.
You see, the answer lies not with how man can be so diabolical, so evil, to take away our liberties, to impose all these governmental programs which reduce us to poverty. No, the answer is simply that these are the goals and desires of Satan.
No longer do I have to consider how one man, or any group of men, could come up with all these plans to bring about our nation’s ruin. All that has to be considered is that these men are following their desires for earthly power and control.
Some may actually have given themselves over to Satan in return for earthly wealth and power, while others may simply be misguided. Take for instance all those who voted for Barack Obama and his slick talk of change we can believe in. Many were beguiled by his smooth delivery and his promises of a better America. The devil was a smooth talker also. After all, he got both Adam and Eve to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge, after they had be explicitly warned by God that if they did, they would die. Genesis 2:17
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that Obama is the devil incarnate, or that he is aware that he is doing the devils handiwork. I am just saying that history is full of examples of how entire nations have been fooled by smooth talking, charismatic leaders who promised them better times if the people would support them.
The colonists who came to America in the 1600’s did not do so to seek riches. They did so to escape the religious persecution they suffered from back in their native land. They came to America to worship freely and this was reflected in the fact that many of their laws were based upon their religious beliefs.
Although many of the colonies held to that belief that men were able to worship freely, there were some places which prohibited one from worshiping as one saw fit. One such place was the Dutch Colony of New Netherlands which established the Dutch Reformed Church, and outlawed all other forms of worship. However, for the most part, men were free to worship God as they so desired.
In fact, in 1777, Thomas Jefferson drafted what is known as The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. From that I quote, “Be it enacted by General Assembly that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of Religion…”
That is quite similar to the principle contained in the First Amendment, which, in part, states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”
Never let it be forgotten that our nation was founded by men of faith. They may have held varying beliefs on the matter, but for the most part they were men who held firm convictions upon the divinity of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Patrick Henry declared as much when he said, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Now anyone who claims to be a Christian should be aware that Satan stood against everything that Jesus preached. If you have read the Scriptures you most certainly remember when Christ was tempted by Satan, and He told him, “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Again, in Matthew 16:23, we find Christ rebuking Satan, “But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”
You see, Satan is able to tempt man by promising him wealth and power, but Christ taught us to disregard these things. From the Sermon on the Mount we read, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: ”
Almost immediately following Christ tells us, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24
Mammon is defined as wealth and greed. Therefore those whose sole goal is to obtain more wealth, more power, are not in line with the teachings of Christ. Therefore the only conclusion is that they have given in to the temptations of Satan.
One does not need to find a connection between the goals of these wealthiest of the wealthy. One does not need to find out who is behind the plans for a New World Order, for the loss of our rights, or for the loss of our nation’s sovereignty. The answer lies in Scripture, and that being is Satan.
Our nation was founded upon the belief that we held certain unalienable rights, that these rights were given us by our Creator. Therefore anyone who seeks to take these rights away from us does not serve God, otherwise they would understand that what they are doing is not what God would desire of them.
That is why the push for political correctness, for tolerance, and for acceptance of all things that a century ago would never have been tolerated. The other day I got an e mail from someone which contained a ‘supposed’ letter written to Dr. Laura Schlesinger by a Mr. James M. Kauffman. The letter discussed the subject of homosexuality because of Dr. Laura’s statement that the Book of Leviticus states it to be an abomination.
The writer goes on to inform Dr. Laura that the Book of Leviticus also defends the practice of slavery, putting his neighbors to death for working on the Sabbath, and a host of other practices found in Leviticus.
The letter appears to mock God’s law by showing that it is outdated. However, one ought to read the Book of Romans, wherein we find, “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
As our nation pushes this concept of tolerance, for our lack of understanding of the principles upon which our nation was founded, for our lack of holding firm to God’s Laws, we are being punished, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness…” Romans 1:18
People who place their faith in the political parties, and their candidates, to solve the problems that this country faces, are misguided, as our problems stem not from political parties, but from our distancing ourselves from God.
In the Book of Ephesians we read, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
That is where our problem lies. I could write until the world ran out of ink and still people would not understand that it is not against men that our battle lies. Men serve either God, or they serve Satan.
If our country is to survive, the people who call themselves Americans, who call themselves patriots, must recognize this fact. We can write, and we may even give our lives fighting for our rights, but it will be of no avail until we as a nation once again give ourselves unto the Lord.
The answer to all our problems is simple, and is found in 2 Chronicles, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Christ told his followers that if they had the faith of a grain of a mustard seed, “…ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
We can heal this land, but to do so we must stop tolerating immorality. We must forsake our desire for wealth, for trivial entertainment, and we must speak out against evil wherever we see it. More importantly, we must pray for those who lead us that they may see the error of their ways, that we may once again become ‘one nation under God.’
That is our only salvation, and I leave it for you
