Weather Weaponry: A Move to Control the Masses


Who isn’t struck by tragic images pouring out of various regions – recent hurricane damage in the Caribbean, India, and American cities like Houston and Florida?  Have we seen hurricanes before?  Of course, but the modern storms do seem unprecedented in both size and quality, don’t they?

Could modern storms be part of a larger fulfillment of a specific time period prophesied or predicted by the Lord Jesus Christ?

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26)

What is the cause of “the sea and the waves roaring“?  Perhaps we use our cars too often – surely if the world serfdom switched to bicycles, that would alleviate the crisis at hand, wouldn’t it?  Let us consider what can cause weather modification – however, buyer beware, our leaders in Canada are attempting to criminalize this discussion.  The party line around the world is to enforce belief in Global Warming.  Do you believe?

Consider a United Nations treaty which was adopted and signed in 1976-77 called Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques.  What could such a treaty be for – can weather be used as a weapon?  Is weather being used as a weapon?

The 1977 treaty begs many questions, doesn’t it? Well, perhaps the United Nations was just being over-protective and they anticipated the possibility for weather warfare – so the UN drafted the 1977 treaty in case any government might think to weaponize weather.

Let us consider more evidence.

One can easily peruse Stanford’s course on Seismic Inducement online.  According to their About Us page, the “mission of the Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity is to conduct fundamental research on the physical processes responsible for induced and triggered seismicity, to carry out intensive case studies and to develop a scientifically-based framework for seismic risk assessment and risk management.”

Oh well, Stanford only focuses on simple techniques like “fracking” (hydraulic fracturing stimulation), right? They also have an interesting section called  “geothermal energy production”.  Consider the possibility that the earth could be artificially heated via “geothermal energy production” technology.  Could any of this heating technology contribute to Global Warming?

Enter HAARP: High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.  Innovations like HAARP, sometimes referred to as ” ionospheric heaters”, have been spotted all over the world.  But what do they do?

According to the Stanford VLF Group:

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facility is located in Gakona, Alaska at 62.39$ ^\circ$ N, 145.15$ ^\circ$ W, near mile 11 of the Tok Cutoff Highway. The facility houses many diagnostic instruments for studying the ionosphere, but the highlight is the HF transmitter array. This array consists of 15×12 crossed dipole antennas, which together can transmit a total of 3600kW of RF power at frequencies from 2.8 – 10 MHz (HF, high frequency range).

According to research conducted from GlobalResearch.ca:

“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
— Quote from a TV documentary on HAARP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

Major aspects of the program are kept secret for alleged reasons of “national security.” Yet there is no doubt that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do exist. According to the official HAARP website, “HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.” The ionosphere is the delicate upper layer of our atmosphere which ranges from about 30 miles (50 km) to 600 miles (1,000 km) above the surface of the Earth.

The HAARP website acknowledges that experiments are conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere.” Some scientists state that purposefully disturbing this sensitive layer could have major and even disastrous consequences. Concerned HAARP researchers like Dr. Michel Chossudovsky of the University of Ottawa and Alaska’s Dr. Nick Begich (son of a US Congressman) present evidence suggesting that these disturbances can even cause tsunamis and earthquakes.

Doesn’t it seem earthquakes are increasing year over year?  Researchers at The Big Wobble have analyzed USGS data, and have painstakingly provided their ominous results in graph form:

Could the steep increase in earthquakes be at least partially due to ionospheric heaters like HAARP?

Consider the words of Jesus Christ regarding a time known as the “latter days” or “end times”:

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

These websites contain only a few examples for what is possible.  To learn more from dedicated researchers and scientists who have poured countless hours into informing the public about weather modification techniques, go to GeoengineeringWatch.org.  There you can find a treasure trove of information including over one hundred patents by number and description of weather modification innovations.

So are we in the beginning of sorrows?  What does this mean for the future?

And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great. (Revelation 16:21)

How much is a talent?  75 pounds or 35 kilograms

We will see 75-pound hail stones.  Are you ready?  While God foretells the future, I believe He has allowed men to carry out their evil schemes, and God uses their innovations to judge a wayward people.

But why would men modify the weather, you may ask?  That brings us to my blog’s title: Weather Weaponry: A Move to Control the Masses.  The end-time globalist agenda of a powerful elite are working to deceive you and me into thinking that our behavior causes climate change.  Thus, we must pay a carbon tax, and eventually our travel will be controlled.  As great King Solomon has said, “there is nothing new under the sun”. The Soviet regime also took great pains controlling travel of men and women.  And the Communist agenda is notorious for making the population poor while the rich “party members” have luxuriant wealth. The same spirits which drove the Bolsheviks in 1917 also drive the Elite in 2017.

And of course, one must consider “population control” when attempting to understand motive for weather warfare.  Historian F. William Engdahl takes on population control in his latest book, Seeds of Destruction.

Population and related food policies of the US Government of the early 1970’s emanated from the halls of the Rockefeller Foundation, from their Population Council and Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and from a handful of similarly well-endowed private foundations, such as the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Foundation. The true history of those organizations was carefully buried behind a facade of philanthropy. In reality, these tax-exempt foundations served as vehicles for the advancement and domination of powerful elite families at the expense of the welfare of most American citizens and of most of mankind. ¹

Eugenics was the foundation of John D. Rockefeller III’s obsession with overpopulation… the Rockefeller Population Council would spend a staggering $173 million on population reduction globally, establishing itself as by far the most influential organization promoting the eugenics agenda in the world. ²

In 1904 Andrew Carnegie’s Carnegie Institute had founded the major laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor, the Eugenics Record Office on wealthy Long Island, outside New York City, where millions of index cards on the bloodlines of ordinary Americans were gathered, to plan for the possible removal of entire bloodlines deemed inferior.  The land for the institute was donated by railroad magnate, E. H. Harriman, a firm supporter of eugenics. This was eugenics, American elite style…

The aim of the index card project was to map the inferior blood-lines and subject them to lifelong segregation and sterilization to “kill their bloodlines”. The sponsors were out to eliminate those they deemed “unfit”.  As early as 1911, Carnegie was funding an American Breeder’s Association study on the “Best Practical Means for Cutting off the Defective Germ-Plasm in the Human Population.” ³

These foundations which sponsored countless population control think-tanks, whitepapers and associations are tax-exempt.  Carnegie gives his reasoning, which speaks volumes as to the personal arrogance of many elite figures in modern history:

“Wealth passing through the hands of the few can be made a much more potent force for the elevation of our race (sic) than if distributed in small sums to the people themselves.” 4

This sense of entitlement likely resides within many of the world’s most powerful people. However, a warning echoes through the ages to Carnegie and all others who yield their souls to  narcissism: For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26)

So what do elite ideas about population control have to do with weather weaponry?  They reveal an alternative explanation for the 400% increase in earthquakes since  the year 1900 (seismic inducement?), massive hurricanes  which hover on ground for days, and tornadoes which stay in place for hours  – highly unusual behavior.

But would men really create weather to kill millions of innocent people?  Consider  how the Elite dealt with Puerto Rico:

The Rockefellers had long regarded Puerto Rico as a convenient human laboratory.  In 1931, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, later renamed the Rockefeller University financed the cancer experiments of Dr. Cornelius Rhoads in Puerto Rico. Rhodes was no ordinary scientist. It later came out that Rhoads had deliberately infected his subjects with cancer cells to see what would happen. Eight of his subjects died. According to pathologist Cornelius Rhoads, “Puerto Ricans are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. What the island needs is not public health work but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8…” Initially written in a confidential letter to a fellow researcher, Rhoads boast of killing Puerto Ricans appeared in Time magazine in February 1932 after Pedro Albizu Campos, leader of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party, gained possession of the letter and publicized its contents.

Rather than being tried for murder, the Rockefeller Institute scientist was asked to establish the US Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah and also Panama, and was later named to the US Atomic Energy Commission, where radiation experiments were secretly conducted on prisoners, hospital patients and US soldiers. 5

How could this injustice prevail?  Nelson Rockefeller was named 1st Assistant Secretary of State for American Republic Affairs in the Roosevelt Administration, and Under Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare for the Eisenhower Administration. The “Shadow Goverment” elite joined the “Deep State” — and the “Health” and “Welfare” Department, no less.

John D. Rockefeller III also joined the fray in Puerto Rico:

JDR III made Puerto Rico into a huge laboratory to test his ideas on mass population control beginning in the 1950’s.  By 1965, an estimated 35% of Puerto Rico’s women of child-bearing age had been permanently sterilized, according to a study made that year by the island’s Public Health Department.  The Rockefeller’s Population Council, and the US Government Department of Heath, Education and Welfare — where brother Nelson was Under Secretary — packaged the sterilization campaign. They used the spurious argument that it would protect women’s health and stabilize incomes if there were fewer mouths to feed. 6

For most Americans and for most of the world, the idea that leading policy circles of the United States Government, acting on the behest of some of the wealthiest families and most influential universities, would deliberately promote the mass covert sterilization of entire population groups was too far-fetched to accept. 7

Is it a far leap to think that if weather weapons exist, prompting the UN to write a treaty in 1977, that the halls of power we have seen in the past would gladly harness the power of nature to destroy whole states and even nations to their sadistic and satanic ends?  I think not.

The Lord has not been taken by surprise.  The culmination of wickedness in the latter days was foretold, and the Ancient of Days had an answer before the world realized it had a problem:

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
 “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
 “I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
 Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
 You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’” (Psalms 2:1-9)

About the end times the first warning Jesus gave was, “take heed that no one deceives you.” (Matthew 24:4b)

The only thing worse than living through 75-pound hailstones is to enter eternity without Jesus Christ. Repent today, and be saved.  Receive the Lord’s finished work of suffering and death on a Roman cross so that you can be saved from your sins.  Tell Jesus, “Lord, I know you are calling me, and  I know that I am a sinner.  Save me from my sins and I will live for you from this day forward.”

We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:1-2)

Perhaps I will be the first Canadian criminal who will stand against the tyranny of Global Warming enforcement.  Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).  Were I to be jailed for preaching truth this day, I would be paradoxically, the most free.  Jesus also said, “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” (John 12:25)  My passions are not for this fleeting moment, but for the eternal life to come.  And I want to take you with me.  What do you believe?

Epic Finds in Archaeology


We have had no shortage of bad news, but consider that the Lord chose our generation to unveil Biblical finds of truly epic proportions.

Now is the day of salvation.  The Lord is trumpeting — sending a shofar blast to the ends of the earth — urgently calling the lost to repentance; He is “pulling out all the stops”.  If you see the Bible as a book of colorful fables, consider the following finds, and entertain the possibility that archaeological evidence has been discovered for each of the following Biblical narratives:

  • Noah’s Ark
  • Red Sea Crossing
  • Mount Sinai
  • Star of Bethlehem
  • Sodom and Gomorrah

Indeed, the rocks are crying out, are you listening?

To learn more about Mount Sinai and the Red Sea Crossing, Prophecy In The News co-hosts J.R. Church and Gary Stearman interviewed famed Swedish Archaeologist Lennart Moeller.  In 2001 Moeller created the DVD: The Exodus Revealed, and he wrote a 300-page book based on his findings: The Exodus Case!:

Perhaps more adversity, trials and persecution lie in store for the followers of Jesus Christ today than any other time in history.  Indeed, all the men of the world are being tried as in a crucible by fire.  The Antichrist kingdom is poised to launch its most vicious attack against humanity.  About the end times, Jesus said: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21)

However, in our generation, the Lord has compensated by affirming arguably some of the greatest portions of Scripture.  But where sin increased, grace increased all the more. (Romans 5:20b)   May the Lord be glorified, and may many souls come into His kingdom – of which “no man can number“.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

 

 

 




Alien Abduction Files: A Christian’s Response


What are your thoughts about aliens?  Are they real – are they fake – is there a government cover-up?  It may surprise my readers to learn that the Holy Bible gives mankind ancient wisdom to understand all of the modern UFO sightings as well as alien encounters of every kind, and alien abductions.

What are aliens?  Extra-terrestrials, or Inter-Dimensionals? Are you aware that “aliens” cannot continue an abduction if its victim cries out for help in the name of Jesus?   Why is the alien subject to the Lord Jesus Christ?  We will explore this and more in my Open Letter to the coauthors of The Alien Abduction Files.  Originally I intended to send this letter by email to the authors only, but have since decided that it may be useful for all of my readers.

My original motivation for writing this open letter – nearly 50 pages in length – is due to great compassion for the authors, especially Denise Stoner who was herself an alien abductee.  And even more sad than her abduction claim was her attitude towards her captors.  I would suggest Mrs. Stoner betrayed characteristics of what is commonly know as “Stockholm Syndrome”.  (Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors.)

Regardless of your current position on aliens, UFOs or the alien abduction phenomenon, I pray each reader will consider, and be open-minded to learn more about this topic, of which millions of people around the world claim to have experiential knowledge:

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 3)


History remembers vast farms throughout the Soviet Union which were once the property of private citizens (who were demonized using the term “kulak”), almost overnight were turned into “property of the state” referred to as a collective farm or “kolkhoz”.  Once the farms were “collectivized”, the owners of the land became serfs:

But we still have not reached the innermost secret. The better off [kulaks] were sometimes left where they were, provided they joined the kolkhoz quickly, while the obstinate poor peasant who failed to apply was deported. This is very important, the most important thing. The point of it all was not to dekulakize, but to force the peasants into the kolkhoz. Without frightening them to death there was no way of taking back – the land which the Revolution had given them, and planting them on that same land as serfs. 8

The Soviet Union then had to incentivize the kulak to work for very little in return.  Not to worry, their very own Karl Marx thought of everything:

And what was next? Where was the stimulus to be sought? Money, piece rates, bonus payments? But all of that carried the acrid smell of recent capitalism, and a long period was required, another generation, for that smell to cease to irritate, so it could be peaceably accepted as “the socialist principle of material incentive.” They dug down deeper into the storage chest of history and dragged out what Marx had called “extraeconomic coercion.” In camp and on collective farms this discovery was presented with bared fangs. 9

What were the precursors to the Soviet collectivization that led to so much internal sorrow for its citizens (who were to survive its barbarism)?  Solzhenitsyn suggests it began with the demonization of the “kulaks” (and I would suggest –  in our day – with the ranchers of Oregon):

Where did it all start? With the dogma that the peasantry is petit bourgeois? (And who in the eyes of these people is not petit bourgeois? In their wonderfully clear-cut scheme, apart from factory workers [not the skilled workers, though] and big-shot businessmen, all the rest, the whole people-peasants, office workers, actors, airmen, professors, students, doctors – are nothing but the “petite bourgeoisie.”) Or did it start with a criminal scheme in high places to rob some and terrorize the rest?

From the last letters which Korolenko wrote to Gorky in 1921; just before the former died and the latter emigrated, we learn that this villainous assault on the peasantry had begun even then, and was taking almost the same form as in 1930.

But as yet their strength did not equal their impudence, and they backed down.

The plan, however, remained in their heads, and all through the twenties they bullied and prodded and taunted: “Kulak! Kulak! Kulak!” The thought that it was impossible to live in the same world as the kulak was gradually built up in the minds of townspeople.

The devastating peasant Plague began, as far as we can judge, in 1929 – the compilation of murder lists, the confiscations, the deportations. But only at the beginning of 1930 (after rehearsals were complete, and necessary adjustments made) was the public – allowed to learn what was happening – in the decision of the Central Committee of the Party dated January 5. (The Party is “justified in shifting from a policy of restricting the exploiting tendencies of the kulaks to a policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class.” And the admission of kulaks to the kolkhoz was immediately … prohibited. Would anyone like to attempt a coherent explanation?)

The dutifully concurring Central Executive Committee of the Soviets and the Council of People’s Commissars were not far behind the Central Committee, and on February 1, 1930, they gave legislative form to the will of the Party. Provincial Executive Committees were required to ”use all necessary methods in the struggle with the kulaks, up to and including [in reality no other method was used] complete confiscation of the property of kulaks and their removal to points beyond the boundaries of certain regions and provinces.” (emphasis mine) 10

Could America be headed in the same direction as former Communist dictator Josef Stalin and his Marxist creed?  Sadly, the globalist agenda would make Stalin’s atrocities look like child’s play.  The high-end estimate of deaths attributed to Stalin is sixty million.  As Dave Hodges writes about America:

Today, our estimated population is 310 million people. Yet, the 11 megacities are only expected to house six million people each.

310,000,000 million Americans – 66,000,000 megacity dwellers

=

244,000,000 missing Americans

Again, if Ammon Bundy loses and this whole series of events gets swept under the carpet, the march toward America 2050 and America’s date with genocide, will continue unabated. IF you want to slow this down, then circulate this article, or write one of your own and distribute it widely, our lives depend on it.

Perhaps you still may ask, isn’t all of this conjecture?  Is any of this really happening?

In March 2012, President Obama quietly signed Executive Order 13603 enabling the federal government to take over management and distribution of all food, water and other resources, should there be an emergency.

One may still argue that men are better today than in the days of Stalin, Mao Zedong, Hitler, Pol Pot etc.  After all, there is a United Nations now, dedicated to the protection of every person, right?  Let us ask ourselves, what really is the agenda of the UN, the New World Order, the Masons, the Vatican and the Illuminati?

In his before-mentioned article covering the Oregon ranchers, Dave Hodges referenced the ominous and foreboding message on two granite pillars known as the Georgia Guidestones.  It is a sort of “Ten Commandments” / American Stonehenge structure secretly created in 1980:

A set of 10 guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

…[The guidelines are] in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

Notice the first “guideline” engraved on the Georgia Guidestones:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

In his new documentary called Dark Clouds Over Elberton: The True Story of the Georgia Guidestones, Chris Pinto exposes the Globalist and Illuminist origins of the Georgia Guidestones whose message betrays their intention to use environmentalism in perhaps the most nefarious plot ever concocted by fallen men to depopulate the world.

Jesus said about the end times:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matthew 24:21-22)

Wisdom is calling with urgency – calling for repentance.  This blog joins with the many thousands of sermons, articles, blogs and videos – each joining and merging as one sound — one trumpet sound and battle cry, declaring “NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!” (II Corinthians 6:2b) Jeremiah gives a very ominous warning to the children of Israel when their hearts were far from the Lord.  If the West is embroiled in the same sins as ancient Israel, could this be our future too:

Behold, I will bring a nation against you from afar,
O house of Israel,” says the Lord.
“It is a mighty nation,
It is an ancient nation,
A nation whose language you do not know,
Nor can you understand what they say.
 
Their quiver is like an open tomb;
They are all mighty men.
 
And they shall eat up your harvest and your bread,
Which your sons and daughters should eat.
They shall eat up your flocks and your herds;
They shall eat up your vines and your fig trees;
They shall destroy your fortified cities,
In which you trust, with the sword.

“Nevertheless in those days,” says the Lord, “I will not make a complete end of you. (Jeremiah 5:-14-18)

Thankfully, there will be those who repent.  And to those, the Lord gives two very comforting prophetic words. No longer must we endure the indignities and horrors of a Communist and Globalist ruse.  No longer must we surrender our land to the powers of Babylon — a very different day awaits those who will “overcome” the end of days:

But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; For the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken. (Micah 4:4)

In that day,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘Everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.’” Zechariah 3:10

We can be greatly comforted by the Lord’s prophecies.  In the meantime, what will we do, and whom will we serve?  Ammon Bundy’s struggle should be all of our “collective” struggle.  The impact of Agenda 21 and its offspring – legislates a worldwide “Bully’s Paradise”, replete with untold barbarism mechanized by twenty-first century technology, and on a scale never before seen.  What will we do when we cannot buy or sell, except by taking the “mark of the beast“?  Make your decision now to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, the loving Shepherd, and Holy Messiah.  Do not wait for the hammer to fall.

Join me in this “Prayer” by Petra:

As we face the last and final hours, turn a wayward country back to You
And keep us from the evil that devours
Keep us on the path and lead us through
Keep us in Your light until Your kingdom comes and our work is done

This is my prayer lifted to You
Knowing You care so much more than I do
This is my prayer in Jesus’ name
Your will be done I humbly pray

This is my prayer, this is my prayer

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 2)


Likely the Hammonds, as well as Ammon Bundy, his siblings and parents who own a cattle ranch in Nevada, would be considered “kulaks” under its later definition of the former Soviet regime:

Subsequently, after 1917, by a transfer of meaning, the name kulak began to be applied (in official and propaganda literature, whence it moved into general usage) to all those who in any way hired workers, even if it was only when they were temporarily short of working hands in their own families. ³

Once the kulak, was sufficiently demonized, the Soviets progressed, or more accurately descended, to the next level:

But the inflation of this scathing term kulak proceeded relentlessly, and by 1930 all strong peasants in general were being so called – all peasants strong in management, strong in work, or even strong merely in convictions. The term kulak was used to smash the strength of the peasantry. Let us remember, let us open our eyes: only a dozen years had passed since the great Decree on the Land – that very decree without which the peasants would have refused to follow the Bolsheviks and without which the October Revolution would have failed….And now these peasants, whose breadgrain had fed Russia in 1928, were hastily uprooted by local good-for-nothings and city people sent in from outside. Like raging beasts, abandoning every concept of “humanity,” abandoning all humane principles which had evolved through the millennia, they began to round up the very best farmers and their families, and to drive them, stripped of their possessions, naked, into the northern wastes, into the tundra and the taiga…. 4

So what does the shameful persecution of unfortunate landowners in the USSR have to do with our day?  Let us continue our exploration of Agenda 21.  If this is a new term or concept, consider this short video which provides a good overall understanding:

https://youtu.be/XJYT52sl-qA

How does Agenda 21 compare to Lenin’s “Decree on Land”:

The Decree on Land, written by Vladimir Lenin, was passed by the Second Congress of Soviets of Workers’, Soldiers’, and Peasants’ Deputies on 26 October 1917, following the success of the October Revolution. It decreed an abolition of private property, and the redistribution of the landed estates amongst the peasantry.  According to the Decree on Land, the peasants had seized the lands of the nobility, monasteries and Church. This decree was followed on February 19, 1918, by a decree of the Central Executive Committee of the Congress of Soviets, “The Fundamental Law of Land Socialization”.

Lenin penned that the land would be redistributed “to the peasants”.  This of course did not make its way into reality, as is quite common with Communist tenets.  Conversely, the peasants were often driven from, or handed over to starvation within their own land, as we have seen in the Stalinist era.  However, Agenda 21 and its sister-agendas like America 2050 go a step further — they do not make empty promises that the land will be redistributed to the people. Conversely they clearly map out “no human access” zones, and assert to move the American people to less than a dozen “megacities”.  Hodges explains:

During this time, the global elite’s plan to establish 11 megacity regions, each containing approximately six million people each was being established under stealth….

In the present time, locating the publicly available information on the megacities topic is child’s play. In fact, I am quite shocked that more of my colleagues in the truthful media are not immersed in this topic and shouting from the rooftops about the implications posed by the implementation of these 11 urban areas to our collective lives, liberties, properties and our very existence….

Where ever you find a bold new initiative related to the plans of the global elite, you will find documentation arising from various think tank organizations in support of these goals. With regard to the coming forced subjugation of the American population to the “stack and pack” megacities, two important papers, the “3-D: Infrastructure for California’s Future” and the National Academy of Public Administration’s “Memos to National Leaders: Partnerships as Fiscal Policy”, jump to the front of the line in espousing the megacities concept.

What is the end goal of Agenda 21?  Hodges has dire words for the future of his country unless “we the people” stand up against the ‘current’ of raging waters:

In the United States, food will be the weapon of choice that will be used to be move people to the target areas. Today, people are being nudged by EPA and BLM policies to the inner city areas. In tomorrow’s world, food will be the enticer to move people to the inner city. With small farmers out of the way, only large corporate farms will exist. This is what the Ammon Bundy situation is all about. If he loses, the following will continue unabated, which means America has a date with genocide.

His is an interesting analysis of Agenda 21 – for “food” to be the “enticer”, and a world where “only large corporate farms will exist”. It piques an interest because history is in fact playing twice.  Solzhenitsyn refers to the Bolshevik and Stalinist orchestrated famines as the “Plague”:

But about the silent, treacherous Plague which starved fifteen million of our peasants to death, choosing its victims carefully and destroying the backbone and mainstay of the Russian people – about that Plague there are no books. No bugles bid our hearts beat faster for them.  Not even the traditional three stones mark the crossroads where they went in creaking carts to their doom. Our finest humanists, so sensitive to today’s injustices, in those years only nodded approvingly: Quite right, too! Just what they deserve! 5

The Soviet Union accomplished her starvation plan through the dreaded policy of “Grain Procurement”, as in this example of a province called Kady.  Its leaders were distressed that the people would have little food to survive once their grain was procured:

It happened that Fyodor Ivanovich Smirnov, the First Secretary of the District Party Committee, was a man with a strong sense of justice; Stavrov, the head of the District Agricultural Department…. These men tried to do something for the peasants in their new district, but directives kept pouring down from above and each one ran counter to some initiative of theirs; it was as if, up there, they were busy thinking up what they could do to make things worse and more desperate for the peasants.  And at one point the leaders in Kady wrote the province leadership that it was necessary to lower the plan for procurement of breadgrains because the district couldn’t fulfill the plan without becoming impoverished well below the danger point. One has to recall the situation in the thirties (and maybe not only the thirties?) to realize what sacrilege against the plan and what rebellion against the government this represented! 6

Holodomor

In this same way, millions of Ukrainians were starved to death, although their land was none other than the famed “breadbasket of Europe“.

This intentional famine is known as “Holodomor”.

Ukrainian grain was sent to Moscow and other places, and sold to procure money for Stalin’s “Five Year Plan” — all while the locals starved.

Stalin sent many dissenters to these regions of death.  This ensured lies flourished in the “Main Stream Media” that no such famine existed.  His propaganda squad also played international hard ball as well, as described in this article:

The Soviets bolstered their famine denial by duping members of the foreign press and international celebrities through carefully staged photo opportunities in the Soviet Union and the Ukraine. The writer George Bernard Shaw, along with a group of British socialites, visited the Soviet Union and came away with a favorable impression which he disseminated to the world. Former French Premier Edouard Herriot was given a five-day stage-managed tour of the Ukraine, viewing spruced-up streets in Kiev and inspecting a ‘model’ collective farm. He also came away with a favorable impression and even declared there was indeed no famine.

Holodomor2

We may ask, why didn’t the Soviet citizens secretly take grains for themselves and their families?  Why did they starve in this manner?  Many tried, but this sort of treasonous act was thoroughly punished:

….There was a wave for snipping ears, the nighttime snipping of individual ears of grain in the field-a totally new type of agricultural activity, a new type of harvesting! The wave of those caught doing this was not small-it included many tens of thousands of peasants, many of them not even adults but boys, girls, and small children whose elders had sent them out at night to snip, because they had no hope of receiving anything from the collective farm for their daytime labor. For this bitter and not very productive occupation (an extreme of poverty to which the peasants had not been driven even in serfdom) the courts handed out a full measure: ten years for what ranked as an especially dangerous theft of socialist property under the notorious law of August 7, 1932-which in prisoners’ lingo was known simply as the law of Seven-eighths. 7

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 1)


What in the world is going on in Oregon?  There appear to be multiple disputes Oregonian ranchers are having with US government agencies over land rights.  Some alternative media journalists have cited UN Agenda 21 as the core basis for these disputes.  Pope Francis became the first Pope in history to address a joint session of US Congress in September 2015.  What did His Holiness promote during those historic sessions?  Agenda 21.  What is Agenda 21 – is it similar to any legislation drawn up in the past?  Before addressing the tenets of Agenda 21, we will first explore what the Bible has to say about this very important subject: land rights.

After the children of Israel escaped from the land of Egypt, the Lord swore that he would give to them a certain piece of land in Canaan; and he brooded over them – determined to fulfill his promise:

Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you.” (Deuteronomy 31:23)

Each Jewish tribe was given their own piece of land as a heritage for their descendants who would follow them:

These are the areas which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel distributed as an inheritance to them.  Their inheritance was by lot, as the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe. For Moses had given the inheritance of the two tribes and the half-tribe on the other side of the Jordan…. For the children of Joseph were two tribes: Manasseh and Ephraim….As the Lord had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did; and they divided the land. (Joshua 14: 1-5)

The Lord instructed the children of Israel to observe what is called the “Year of Jubilee”.  During that year, everyone who was heavily indebted and had to sell their land as a result, would be given back the land of their inheritance.

In the Year of Jubilee the field shall return to him from whom it was bought, to the one who owned the land as a possession. And all your valuations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs to the shekel. (Leviticus 27:24)

If any were enslaved because of their debts, they would be given emancipation.  The year of Jubilee ensured the continuity of the tribe members’ lands, resources and fortunes; all would be preserved as an inheritance to future generations.

The Lord described this safe time in Israel’s history, with a connection to land rights for the children of Israel:

And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, each man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan as far as Beersheba, all the days of Solomon. (1 Kings 4:25)

So what do these ancient Scriptures have to do with Oregon, or Agenda 21?

The “new” Agenda 21 of the new world order is anything but new.  It is based on well-known tenets of Communist Marxism: Abolition of private ownership of land, and abolition of inheritance.  These Marxist tenets are directly opposed to the ancient paths of Biblical instruction.  Under Marxist principle, all land belongs to the government.  Is it any surprise that the American execution of Agenda 21 has caused deep unrest among ranchers whose families have owned their land for decades?  Steadily, the government has been using draconian methods to take land from ranchers across the United States.  Ironically, the Constitution of the United States restricts federal land ownership. With the exception of “forts, magazines, arsenals, dock-yards, and other needful buildings” (and even then, purchases are via “consent of the legislature of the state”), the founding fathers penned that the federal government is not authorized to own land (Article I, Section 8, Clause 17).  Yet the federal government has amassed many acres of farm and ranch lands across the United States.  How much land does the government own?  According to this article by Heritage.org:

In 1996, the General Accounting Office reported that the federal government owned a staggering 650 million acres, or one-third of the land in the United States.

Ammon Bundy said goodbye (hopefully only temporarily) to his wife and six children in order to lead an armed protest based out of the empty Malheur Wildlife Refuge building approximately thirty miles outside of Burns, Oregon. Many have decried their decision to overtake the wildlife building, but the OregonMap3protesters believe their cause is just and right, and are willing to face fines, imprisonment, and even death to raise awareness for what they believe are gross injustices in Harney County, Oregon.  The main stream media points out that the Harney County citizens do not want Ammon and his people there – yet many citizens have come to them privately to say they are afraid of government retribution.  And still other locals have brought the men food and resources. Independent Journalist, Pete Santilli has been live-streaming since Day 1 of the protest, and many things which come to light during his streams, never see the light of day on main stream media. This is not surprising given that all main stream media is owned by six corporate conglomerates. Consequently, main stream media channels are paid to report the party line.  Their collective propaganda machines are infinitely more sophisticated and effective than anything Stalin or Hitler could have imagined.

Independent Journalist Dave Hodges details an interview with Ammon Bundy wherein Hodges connects the UN Agenda 21 with  protests in Burns, Oregon.  Central to the activity in Burns is the case of Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammond. They left their homes to report to federal prison – for the second time – on January 4, 2016. They already served a sentence for Arson, and now they are serving a sentence for Terrorism – for the same “crime”.  The Hammonds are accused of starting a fire on their own land, which is normal for any rancher, but this fire spread to government-owned BLM property.   Hodges gives this account:

During the course of the interview, Ammon made the case that the federal prosecutors violated Double Jeopardy when dealing with the Hammonds. He also made the case that the role of his men was toAgenda21Map correct the abuses against ranchers and farmers by the departments of the federal government (e.g. BLM). They are reviewing land titles, mineral rights documents and seeing that these agreements are carried out. For example, he told the audience of how they freed the unjustly encumbered land of a rancher by removing a fence placed on the private land of a rancher by Fish and Wildlife. The fence was illegally interfering with the rancher’s right to conduct economic activity on their land. In fact, it can be said, the Bundy led patriots are the only lawful group in the area as these kinds of property rights abuses are being carried by the federal government against thousands of ranchers and farmers in the West.

The goal of these illegal land grab federal activities is to enforce Agenda 21 dictates from the United Nations and vacate all rural land of private ownership in the West. These cases are so numerous, that there is no denying this claim. ¹

What about the government violation of “double jeopardy”, which is a US Constitution, 5th Amendment protection designed to prevent “the prosecution of a person twice for the same offense“?  Does the violation of “double jeopardy” protection find its roots in other forms of government?

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn describes “second camp terms” in the notorious Soviet concentration camps he referred to as the “archipelago”:

…In 1938, second camp terms were given out without any second arrest, without a camp interrogation, without a camp court, when the prisoners were simply called up in brigades to the Records and Classification Section and told to sign for their second terms.  (For refusing to sign—you were simply put in punishment block, as for smoking where it wasn’t allowed.) And they also had it all explained to them in a very human way: “We aren’t telling you that you are guilty of anything, but just sign that you have been informed.”… And it was useless to try to get out of it as if, in the dark infinity of the Archipelago, eight was in any way distinct from eighteen, or a tenner at the start from a tenner at the end of a sentence. The only important thing was that they did not claw and tear your body today. ²

Next we will highlight the case of Frenchglen ranchers in Oregon.  In this youtube video, BLM agents start fires on ranchers’ property, destroying houses and livestock.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zvrrQbjepc

In the youtube video above, one can easily see the distressed cows with burns and blood marks as they are struggling to breathe – immersed in  thick smoke from BLM fires. Where are the Animal Rights CattleBurnedand Environmental groups now?  Be assured, that most special interest groups will go along with Agenda 21.  The cost of dissent is just too high.

We may sit back and criticize the methods of Bundy and his men, but as we articulate our dissent, the tenets of Agenda 21 are likely being drawn up for our properties, lands and homes.  Perhaps one day we may only wish for an Ammon Bundy who would selflessly arise to our defense.

A Prayer for Our Times


A prayer to Abba Father in Heaven, in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ

Lord, you inspired many of your ancient prophets to write – about our day. Your compassion is great – imploring, calling, travailing – for us.  May we fall in love with you, and your Word.  May we tire of our idols, replacements and counterfeit laws. May we be persuaded that Your wisdom is undefiled, pure, holy and true.  As we taste the bitter fruit of unholiness, wickedness and apathy, may Your Word work in every heart to bring us to the cross.  Take our rebellion, cast it as far as the east is from the west; and we receive your love and righteousness given by virtue of your last breath.

Lord have mercy on us.

You see every deal made in dark alleys and shady corners. You see every plot devised in penthouse suites, palaces and high towers.  Every royal chamber is before you.  Every conversation recorded.  The greatest deception has been believed by the elite of our world who pay time and resource to manifest the great slaughters of our time.  May we see through the venom of men; may we see their enslavement  – and fulfill your Word to “love our enemies”.

Lord have mercy on us.

Lord lift the veil that those who blindly slaughter your people will glimpse the bloodied, torn, bruised body of Jesus Christ. Open their eyes, separate their soul from the spirit attempting to chaperon them into everlasting torment.  May those fully possessed by legions of demons – repent.  May your Love penetrate the darkest of hearts, including mine.  May Truth set us free from every evil:  jealousy, envy, bitterness, anger, murder, despair, worry, hopelessness, greed, manipulation and pride. Teach us to become like you; and forever may we worship you, in Spirit and in Truth. May we become bulwarks for your Word, and your Presence.  Our only hope.

Lord have mercy on us.




The Beginning: Revisiting Genesis


Perhaps Genesis is one of the most controversial books of the Bible because of its ‘scientific’ content.  But in fact, it is the only “holy” book which describes the Creator existing outside of space and time; other religious writings contain a creator who is within the known universe – creating from existing matter in an ‘eternal’ space and time.

Consider a few Bible Scriptures which may correspond to recent scientific discovery; is it possible for a quantum mechanics physicist or an astrophysicist to recognize the language within the Bible as correlating with his own scholarly domain(s):

Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?  It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:  That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. (Isaiah 40: 21-23 – emphasis mine)

He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, And has stretched out the heavens at His discretion. (Jeremiah 10:12 – emphasis mine)

The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. (Zechariah 12:1 – emphasis mine)

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:3 – emphasis mine)

In Titus, Paul speaks of a “hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began. (Titus 1:2 – emphasis mine).

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1 – emphasis mine)

Given the advent of the “Big Bang Theory” which posits the universe had a “beginning”, perhaps it is time for the scientific community to revisit the claims of Genesis, which in its first three words agree with our new scientific data: “In the beginning“.

There are several positions within Christendom which attempt to explain the Genesis account of creation and specifically the ‘days’ of Creation.  None of the positions should divide Christians; at the end of the ‘day’ (no pun intended), we should allow the “how” of Genesis to be sought out by all who are interested.

That He would show you the secrets of wisdom!  For they would double your prudence…. Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven— what can you do? Deeper than Sheol— what can you know? (Job 11:7)

So we will attempt our search, with all humility.  The first position is that of a ‘young-earth’ perspective, which holds that the six days of creation were six literal 24-hour earth-days.  A second perspective suggests the “days” of Genesis were unspecified periods of time; it is argued that the Hebrew word for day, “yom” can mean a literal day, a partial day as in daytime, or a long period of time as in “…in Suzie’s day…”.  I believe in a combination of these two arguments.  A Jewish nuclear physicist named Gerald Schroeder has written several books on this subject, and I wholeheartedly agree with his findings. While being an avid scientist, Schroeder is also a devout scholar of the Hebrew Bible. This blog will be an attempt to summarize Schroeder’s views, so you the reader can make up your own mind — whether or not to “search out” his fascinating ideas any further.

Essentially Schroeder has postulated that the six days of creation are 24-hour days — but not from the perspective of earth.  He bases his ideas on modern astronomy and cosmology, and the stretching of space/time, each of which has been accepted scientifically for many years.

Schroeder describes ‘the beginning’, at the instant God spoke the world into existence.   All of time, energy and matter were as a mustard seed, which then radiated outward over time.  At the beginning, time was condensed into a far smaller region of time/space, and from that perspective (within the smaller region), it took 24 literal hours to complete each day of creation.  Since then however, the universe has been stretching (both science and Bible agree on this point) and the light of space has also been stretching — and by time-relativity definition, time has also been stretching or expanding.  So while God experienced 24-hour days, humans from the perspective of earth looking backwards towards “the beginning”, see millions and millions of light years.  Each perspective is right and accurate, relative to one another.  So in the end, both sides are right.

But, you might ask, how could time be different for God than it is for mankind while on earth?  Today astrophysics can measure and confirm that the sun is 7 seconds per year slower than the earth’s local time.  “The sun sends us its timing information in every beam of sunlight…” (The Science of God: page 50).  Time and Light are intrinsically connected and are relative depending upon the measurement location – specifically its gravity, velocity and its position relative to the expansion of the universe.

Schroeder coined a phrase “cosmic proper time” to indicate the moment of quark confinement which occurred shortly after the “Big Bang”.  At that time, the universe was 1×10¹²  or a “million million” times smaller.  Science has proven that the universe was hotter by the same factor — a million million.  The empirical proof rests with the “cosmic background radiation (CBR)” which is the same “light” all over the universe; scientists believe that its light was the original light of creation.   Normally light varies from place to place in the universe, but the CBR is consistently the same temperature throughout the universe, and it is literally found everywhere as the “background light” of the universe.  Prior to the discovery of CBR, scientists calculated what the heat of the background light of space should be using the value for quark confinement.  Eventually scientists not only  discovered the anticipated background light, but also that it is indeed very close to the temperature which scientists had predicted it would be.

So one day Schroeder was talking with his wife, and he had an idea — to divide the 15 billion years (perceived approximate age of the universe) by the “cosmic proper time” value of a million million (1×10¹²), and the calculation resulted in a value just shy of six days!  He felt that inspiration was by divine leading.

Another amazing component of Schroeder’s theory is that by using physics and the understanding of the “cosmic proper time” juxtaposed against the earth’s local time, he developed a chart which reveals an amazing reconciliation between events asserted by the Bible, and events within the same “relative” time period accepted by modern science.  (ie: What scientists believe occurred on the scientific “day 2” (using biology, chemistry, physics, quark confinement and the known rate of expansion etc.) corresponds exactly to the Biblical events of “Day 2” etc.).  Here is Schroeder’s chart taken from page 67 of his book, Science of God:

Victory of Christ Over Satan (Part 2)


VICTORY OF CHRIST OVER SATAN (Part 2)

God’s Deathblow to Satan’s Scheme

It appears from scripture that Satan knew he was coming into a new arena of contest with God, with Jesus being born into the human race. He was frantic to kill the infant Jesus and incited King Herod to fear and jealousy. Herod ordered all of the baby boys in Bethlehem and it’s vicinity to be murdered, hoping to eliminate the possibility of any other king arising out of the Jewish nation. At Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist in the Jordan River, Satan undoubtedly heard the heavenly Father speak about Jesus, “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matt. 3:17, KJV). It’s no surprise that Satan tried to challenge Jesus on that very point, tempting Jesus repeatedly with the words, “… If thou be the Son of God,” (Matt. 4:3, 6, KJV). He was trying the same tests on Jesus that always worked with every other person, including Adam and Eve,  that is, through “…the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,” (I John 2:16, KJV).

Jesus continued to baffle and belittle Satan and his fallen angels throughout the course of His three years of ministry. Jesus invaded Satan’s domain again and again, demoralizing him with healing sick people, bringing dead people back to life, shedding the intense light of God’s truth on his dark, secret strategies. Jesus not only cast Satan’s demons out of possessed people, but He added further insult to Satan by giving His disciples power and authority to do the same. raisingthedeadgirlSatan’s contest with Jesus seemed to be a continual series of defeats, an unending encounter with futility.

Then one day, Jesus announced to His disciples, “ Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.” (John 12:27, KJV). Now Jesus would lay aside all of His power and authority and allow Satan to work his wicked plan of trying to destroy Jesus. Finally he would be given the opportunity to prevent Jesus from ever being able to cleanse another leper, make another blind person see, lame person walk, or to cast out another demon from a tormented human being. In his book, The Newborn Christian, J.B. Phillips penetratingly describes the culmination of our Savior’s mission.

“The record of the behavior of Jesus on the way to the Cross and of the Crucifixion itself is almost unbearable, chiefly because it is so intensely human…There are no supernatural advantages for this man. No celestial rescue party delivered Him from the power of evil. We can only guess what frightful anguish of mind and spirit wrung from Him the terrible words, “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me?” But the cry, “It is finished!” cannot be one of despair. It does not even mean, “It is all over.” It means, “It has been completed,” and the terrifying task of doing God’s will to the bitter end had been fully and finally accomplished.”¹

   crucifixion

Satan had no idea that at the moment of his seemingly greatest triumph, when Jesus was dead on that cross, that the fulfillment of God’s word to him in the Garden of Eden so long ago had just happened, “ And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel,” (Gen. 3:15, KJV). Satan’s dream—foiled beyond recovery—Jesus rose from the dead!

The apostle Paul writes exultantly about this in his letter to the Corinthians. “…But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory,” (1 Cor. 2:7 & 8, KJV). Again in another Scripture, Paul boasts of Satan’s defeat, “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” (Col. 2:15, KJV).

CONCLUSION

The mystery of God’s goodness and power over evil continues to work in each of our lives. Oh, if we could only remember that “God’s ways are higher than our ways.”²  Even though Jesus was dying and appeared to be losing the final battle to Satan, the inscription posted at the top of that cross by Pilate read, “JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS,” (John 19:19, KJV). Though Satan undoubtedly mocked with cynical derision at that sign while watching Jesus’ life ebb away, the words of that inscription became terrifyingly true and obvious to him when Jesus came out of the tomb.

emptytombThose words have been a continual haunt to him down through these past two thousand years. Satan will forever know that JESUS IS LORD AND KING and because He is, God will forever have a family.

Victory of Christ Over Satan (Part 1)


VICTORY OF CHRIST OVER SATAN (Part 1)

 INTRODUCTION

holybible  The Holy Bible is the only source on this planet that gives mankind a clear picture of man’s origin, his purpose for existing, and his future destiny. The Word of God makes it very plain that a cosmic struggle between good and evil, God and Satan has been ongoing ever since Lucifer, the powerful, beautiful angel created by God, fell from his exalted position through pride and rebellion against the Holy One. I will examine the path and means God chose to wage war against Satan as Satan attempted to undermine and destroy God’s design for mankind and all of creation.

God’s Dream – To Have a Family

To have a dream of something more, something better, something greater is really a God characteristic. The drive we have inside of us to expand, reach farther, increase and multiply is there because those attributes are part of God’s own character. We see this so clearly in Scripture, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness …” (Gen. 1:26 KJV). God wanted to recreate His own Beauty, Truth, Justice, Mercy, and Goodness. He chose man to be the extension of Himself, a being who could freely and willfully return His love and companionship. The greatest evidence of this was Jesus’ description of God as “The Father.” The tenderness of this God to want and have a family comes to life when one hears Jesus speaking this word to His disciples,  ”Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32, KJV).

The Scriptures clearly depict man’s origin. Adam was created by God Himself, with God breathing the breath of life into Adam’s lifeless form. Then, so Adam wouldn’t be alone, God created Eve, a suitable helper for him. Through Adam and Eve, God’s idea of creating a large family, with whom He could share His love and be loved in return, would be a reality.

God’s Dilemma – His Family Taken Captive

The tragedy of the ages—God’s perfect, sinless children taken captive through lies and deception, to the very perpetrator of the heavenly rebellion, Satan himself. I can sense the holy hatred in Jesus’ voice when He spoke of Satan in John 8:44 (KJV), “When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” In those descriptions of Satan by Jesus, one can feel the love Jesus has for the Father, the awful pain our Father in heaven felt when the relationship with His children, His family, was fractured beyond hope. One can sense the holy jealousy our Father experienced at losing those created in His own image, to the very one He expelled from heaven because of arrogance, pride, and rebellion.

jesusinjerusalem   In his book, The Other Jesus, Lloyd J. Ogilvie writes, “The Father always has the lost on His heart. He yearns for us when we are separated from Him. There’s an aching loneliness in His heart when we are estranged from Him…He longs for the intimate oneness with us He created us to enjoy.”¹

Many times throughout the scriptures, the holy jealousy of God for His creation is mentioned, as in Zech. 8:2 (KJV), “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.

It appeared that God would have no choice but to accept the inevitable. Adam and Eve freely and willfully gave over the legal rights of this earth and mankind to Satan. God’s plan for a family was doomed. Man had no power now to regain his former fellowship with God. God’s dream was over, being unable to compromise His character of perfect justice, even though it was the diabolical Satan who perpetrated the irreparable fracture.

But God did have a plan all along, a plan so unthinkable, that neither Satan, nor any angel or human being could have conceived of such a plan that could reverse this hopeless demise. It’s been said there is a beautiful painting in a French museum, which exactly depicts this unfathomable plan. The artist shows Adam and Eve just after they had been expelled from the Garden of Eden. The angel with drawn sword is standing at the entrance of the garden to prevent them from returning to their former paradise. There are thistles and thorns, weeds and many other evidences all around that reveal even the beauty of the earth has been shattered in a way not thought possible. Adam and Eve are depicted with countenances of horror and dismay. However, they are not looking at the stern-faced angel with drawn sword, or at the blight of a cursed landscape. They are gazing heavenward, seeing the One Who walked with them “in the garden in the cool of the day,” (Gen. 3:8, KJV), dying, hanging upon a cross. Truly, this painting is a description of Paul’s word to the Ephesians, “…he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,” (Eph. 1:4, KJV).

 

God’s Departure – The Greatest Rescue Mission Ever Undertaken

nativity When Jesus was born in Bethlehem and the shepherds received the vision and message from the heavenly host, only those angels could have possibly understood the “…good tidings of great joy,” (Luke 2:10, KJV) and just how great was this event of Jesus’ birth. They were in heaven when Lucifer rebelled against God. They were there to see the Father’s heart break at the fall of Adam and Eve. They were witnesses of man’s plight, living in a fallen world, having a sin nature, with Satan being loose and on the prowl to perpetrate every evil device imaginable against and through God’s highest creation. The song of those angels that night outside Bethlehem was just a tiny echo of the thunderous roar of praise to God that resounded through the universe as Jesus came forth from Mary’s womb.

One of my favorite old-time hymns of the faith is, “There Is a Fountain Filled With Blood” by William Cowper. The first words of this anointed song read, “There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Emmanuel’s veins.”2   The year was 1983, the place, Moody Bible Church in Chicago where I was attending Founder’s Week in February of that year. On the last day of the events, a man stood up and began to reverently sing this song in his deep, baritone voice. As I heard the words, “drawn from Emmanuel’s veins,” I felt the Holy Spirit communicating to me the reality of the same message that artist who painted the picture in the French museum depicted in the faces of Adam and Eve. I was getting the revelation about God’s very own life-blood being poured out because of His love for sinful man. The Scripture, “…Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (God with us),” (Isaiah 7:14, KJV), came alive to me as never before. I saw in my spirit God’s own arms extended downward to man, blood flowing from His veins.
