A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.

How do you destroy the Jews? Not an easy task.
The powerful Pharaoh tried it and failed. Even ten plagues were not enough to convince him to stop. Nebuchadnezzar, king ofBabylon, gave it a shot. And, of course, Antiochus Epiphanies, the king of Syria, failed in his attempt, resulting in the celebration of Chanukah. Then there was the Roman army in the first century and the Crusaders in the 11th century, just to name a few more.
Since Jews miraculously cannot be defeated by conventional means, we will destroy them from within through a new 21st century phenomenon called “Identity Theft;” thereby confusing and muddying the Jewish identity and historic relationship with its homeland of 3,500 years.
Gas chambers are immediate proof of death with obvious smoke, smells and ashes. “Identity Theft” is done silently, eating away at your total being, like a cancer. And suddenly, it is too late. Ask anyone who has been a victim of this new, high tech lynching. Unfortunately, most of those so-called smart Jewish leaders inIsraeldo not even understand the problem. This form of marketing and public relations has always been Israel’s Achilles’ heel.

As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
“All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
“At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
(from “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions: Address Before the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois” January 27, 1838)

As a conservative Christian woman I have been contemplating the swirling political climate around us. I have observed in dismay as small fractions of special interest groups make giant leaps forward in redefining our culture in the United States of America. Small percentages of people fiercely passionate and united by a common bond seem to have completely blurred the line between good and evil. The grey area is taking over much like the nothingness in the novel “The never ending story” penned by Michael Andreas Helmuth Ende (12 November 1929 – 28 August 1995)
The battle between good and evil began with the dawn of time and until the prophecies of the Bible are fulfilled will continue.
What is most alarming to me is this subliminal message that those of us who oppose this “culture shock” are to remain silent or else suffer the life threatening consequences. As usual there are unconscionable fanatics on either side of these issues but the venom of the emerging culturists has reached unforeseen heights.
If we dare to disagree with these new “norms” we are labeled “Bible hugging, gun toting ignoramuses” who refuse to merge into the 21st century. But even this reality is not as disturbing as the realization that most of those who would agree with us have been intimidated into a grudging silence.
Just as Hitler marched on with the secret police in Nazi Germany so those who would institute a counter culture are storming the airwaves and infiltrating the businesses and personal spaces of any would be opponents. If you defy the new definition of right or wrong, good or evil you will be shouted into silence and in some instances intimidated by threats or actions of physical violence against you or your loved ones.
As a Christian (a believer in Jesus as the prophesied Messiah, or in the religion based on the teaching of Jesus, (Webster’s New World Dictionary) I have been given the commandment of Love by the Lord himself. I am to act in love toward those who are my opponents as well as my fellow believers. Which leads us to the question, how do I act in Love towards others? Do I show my true love for others by pretending that evil behavior is good for them? Do I show my love by affirming them in self destruction? Should I say to the alcoholic go ahead and drink to your heart’s content it won’t really hurt you? Should I provide an atmosphere conducive to their propensity to drink along with a support group to affirm them in their freedom of choice? Should I remain silent as I watch an intoxicated person being helped into the driver’s seat of their automobile after exercising their right to drink?
The answers to these questions are ridiculously obvious and yet as we delve further into the counter culture the once obvious lines between good and evil, right and wrong become blurred beyond distinction. Then we must ask ourselves who or what has the right to define good or evil? For me it is The Creator and His Word (The Bible) that have the final say on the distinction between good and evil. Clearly the emerging culture in the United Sates by biblical standards would be compared to Sodomand Gomorrah. So what is my responsibility as first a subject of the Kingdom of God and secondarily a citizen of theUnited States?
Cry aloud, spare not. Lift up your voice like a trumpet and declare to My people their transgression and to the house of Jacob their sins!
Yet there are those who call themselves Christians who say that we should not give voice to the current events of our day. There are those who point to the constitution and say the first amendment declares that Christians are not to inflict their will upon other equal citizens of this country. I beg to differ:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
As I read the first amendment it establishes my right as a Christian to speak the utmost syllable of my conviction. In the foregoing verse Our Creator has given us a mandate to “Cry aloud and spare not” concerning the “sin” (meaning: to miss the mark) of others. As a Christian I must lift my voice and call them to a place of repentance:
Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 Learn to do right! Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, and correct the oppressor. Defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
As a citizen I have a right to take a stand for Godly principals concerning the laws of this nation.
There are many sects of Christianity and diverse doctrines among us concerning our faith, but one thing that must be at the core of our Christian faith is Jesus and his sovereignty as our Lord and Savior. Let us examine the words of the Lord himself:
43 For there is no good (healthy) tree that bears decayed (worthless, stale) fruit, nor on the other hand does a decayed (worthless, sickly) tree bear good fruit.
44 For each tree is known and identified by its own fruit; for figs are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor is a cluster of grapes picked from a bramble bush.
45 The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
47 For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them, I will show you what he is like:
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or founded on a rock.
49 But he who merely hears and does not practice doing My words is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the torrent burst, and immediately it collapsed and fell, and the breaking and ruin of that house was great.
America do you still think that the economic turmoil is due to the greed of an elite group of fortune 500 C.E.O.’S? Do you still think it can be solved by tax reform?
Do you still believe that all the natural disasters and weather anomalies are due to man’s pollution of the industrial age? Let us examine again the words of our Lord:
3 While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?
4 Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].
5 For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [[b]appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray.
6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place;
8 All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the [c]birth pangs [of the [d]intolerable anguish].
9 Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.
10 And then many will be offended and repelled and will [e]begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred.
11 And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.
12 And the love of [f]the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity,
13 But he who endures to the end will be saved.
If ever there was a time for the Christians to lay aside their differences in this nation that time is now. The unity of the body of Christ is needed now more than ever before to rise as one voice and push back against the onslaught of evil that is pervading across this country. If we unite and work as one I believe we can alter the course of this nation. God himself throughout the Bible confirms the power of unity whether for good or for evil as in the account of the building of the tower of Babel.
6 And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have [a]all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.
As many of us languish in apathy and timidity the demands of the few have overtaken the convictions of the many. I am convinced like the servant of the prophet Elisha if our eyes are opened we will see that there are more for us than those who are against us:
2 Kings 6:15-17
King James Version (KJV)
15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
Where are the leaders who will rise up and cry aloud for this great and noble cause…even the saving of the soul of a nation?
