“Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!”
(From the poem Marmion by Walter Scott)
A Tangled Web
Tuesday, July 21, 2015, 7:47 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put two songs in mind, “He Reached Down,” and “He Lifted Our Burdens.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read James 5:1-6 (NASB).
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you.
I am not a historian by any stretch of the imagination. I did horrible in US and World History, Social Studies, and Government when I was a student in high school many years ago. I also did horrible in geography, and knew little about any other countries in the world. I never understood politics, either, so I pretty much avoided reading much of anything in the way of news stories about world events or about political platforms or governmental decisions. I didn’t think I could understand them anyway. I voted a straight party ticket for all (but one of) the years I voted in elections, too. I just voted along the same lines as my parents had voted. It was easier that way. [I have not voted since the presidential primary in 2008.] I am married (42 years). We raised 4 children (now ages 34, 36, 38 & 40), and we now have 12 grandchildren. I was always active in church (Christian) ministry, so my family life, church life (family), and my relationship with God/Jesus Christ was my life.
I say all that to say that since 2006 the Lord Jesus has been putting in my mind names of countries I did not know, but then I researched, and I learned some of what was going on in those nations, especially in relation to the USA, the New World Order and End Times. The Lord Jesus often used dreams or visions as allegories as a way of showing me what is going on in the world, because there is so much deception, and it is nearly impossible to know who is telling the truth these days. These past nine years the Lord Jesus has taught me so much about other countries and about my own nation, most of which I had no idea about previously. I was a flag waving, pledge making, song singing patriot, because I believed the history books, and I believed what I was taught in church about my nation.
Yet, God opened my eyes to see that so much of what I had believed was true was really lies told us by our leaders in government and within the institutional church. I learned that the USA government was not formed on Christian principles, but on freemasonry, foreign mythical gods and goddesses, and has many connections with Satanic and occult beliefs and practices. Look at the layout of Washington, D.C. Look at all the buildings and statues in D.C. which were patterned after Roman, Greek and Egyptian gods and goddesses. Look at the Great Seal of the USA with its occult and masonic images of an All-Seeing Eye and unfinished pyramid over which this All-Seeing Eye hovers. Look at the history of the United Nations. Read about the New World Order. Read what the USA has been doing in other nations, and then ask God to show you the truth. Do the homework. Pray. Much of what we see on the surface and what lies beneath the surface are completely different things.
The Lord put the name of the country Nicaragua in my mind this morning, so I have been doing a lot of research today on that nation. I read about their history, and the US involvement and occupations of that nation over the last century, and about the Iran-Contra affair. The US was apparently culpable there for giving support to rebels (contras) who were supposedly opposing the Nicaraguan government during the Reagan administration (US). Purportedly the US sold weapons to Iran and then used some of the proceeds from that sale to fund the contras. According to Wikipedia, “During the war between the contras and the Sandinistas, 30,000 people were killed” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicaragua). If this is true, then the US government helped support, train, and arm rebels in a foreign nation which resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocents. These rebels purportedly “engaged in a systematic campaign of terror amongst the rural Nicaraguan population to disrupt the social reform projects of the Sandinistas.” Historians “have contended that murder, rape, and torture occurred on a large scale in contra-dominated areas. The contras also carried out a campaign of economic sabotage,” according to the Wikipedia article.
So, if that is true, then what is to make us think that our government is lily white today? If we do the homework, and we pay attention to what has been going on in various nations throughout the world, and we see how much the US is involved in all these other nations, and how much the United Nations controls what goes on in other nations; and if we read the news articles over the past several years about all these uprisings and takeovers of nations, we will read about rebels (or terrorists) in these other nations, too, that suddenly rose and began causing all kinds of havoc, which then led to “international intervention” and the forcing of these various nations to have to “cooperate” with the “international community” or pay the consequences. And, then many of these nations ended up disbanding their present forms of government, and instead formed “transitional governments.”
There is plenty of evidence on the internet that our government has continued supporting, arming and training rebels and terrorists, and that the ones they are supporting now are doing much the same as what the contras did. If we do the research, we can learn about the various US-backed terrorist organizations in the world. ISIS is one of them. Al-Qaida is another, and the Taliban, and I am sure the list goes on. The US government is the worst of the worst. They pretend to be one thing on the surface, but underneath they are something else entirely. These other nations didn’t all just decide to have uprisings one after another, after another, any more than what is presently going on within the USA with all these factions, mass murders, riots, bombings, etc. just suddenly happened. They are all following the same M.O. The US doesn’t go into these nations to “help” them, but to help themselves. First they and their political allies cause the trouble, and then they go in as “saviors” with the solution, but they are not there to save but to take over.
They are still making deals or are trying to make deals with Iran, too. They have been at it for some time. Only what they tell us is going on is not the same as what is really going on. Every time the Lord talked with me about Iran since 2006, he showed me that what we accuse Iran of doing is what we (the US) are doing. We commit horrific crimes and then we blame them on other people, some of whom we have hired to do our dirty work for us. And, then we act horrified over these tragedies and act all concerned and offer our help, but it is not help we are offering. The US government has been paving the way for world domination by the New World Order, and the US has, directly or indirectly, been systematically dismantling governments of nations, and has been going after all opposition, including, I believe, killing Christians, whether literally with physical weapons, or philosophically through deception and manipulation of truth, as has been going on here in the USA. What they have been doing in other nations, they are now doing in the USA. And, God hears the cries of those whom they have treated shamefully, and he is bringing judgment on the US.
Behind the Scenes (Wednesday morning)
I read a news article this morning about an interview with Obama by Jon Stewart on the “Daily Show.” If you know anything about how the world powers work, they like to make statements with hidden messages, announcing their true intent, which they expect most people to not notice. Obama mentioned that there was “a bunch of other things we want to get done” during his remaining time in office. According to the article, “Obama said the Iran deal… illustrated how important work goes on behind the scenes in contradiction of critics…” Now, on the surface, that seems innocent enough, but “behind the scenes” means “out of sight of the public at a theatre” (Google). Our government works much out of the sight of the American public (behind closed doors) where we can’t see what they are really doing. And, it is a theatre (performances for our entertainment or distraction), i.e. much of what they say they are doing is not what they are doing at all. And, they do this in opposition of critics – “one who engages often professionally in the analysis, evaluation, or appreciation of… artistic performances” (M-W), i.e. they actively oppose those who have their number.
Obama also said, “But if you have a government that was built on 1930 models…” This jumped out at me. So, I Googled “1930 model” and what came up was Henry Ford’s 1930 vehicles. A vehicle is also medium, channel, agent, etc., and Henry Ford was indeed involved in a model on which this government was built, which is the Freemasons and the Illuminati (see references below), i.e. the New World Order (All-Seeing Eye). With regard to his remarks about the government being built on 1930 models, speaking in terms of what this government is doing now he said, “We are redesigning from soup to nuts,” which means “from beginning to end.” Basically, this New World Order is recreating our government from the beginning of it to the end of it, i.e. they are working to end our present form of government so that this redesign (new order) can take over. And, this “redesign” involves putting the old order to death, so that out of the ashes of the old order, which includes the true church, a phoenix (new order) may rise in its place.
Opposition to the Gospel
Right now there is a huge campaign going on globally by the US and their New World Order allies. And, it is against Bible believing gospel preaching followers of Jesus Christ and the gospel of our salvation. Obama and the Pope and Rick Warren are promoting a one-world religion, i.e. a uniting of all religions together, and this is being accomplished through false teaching within the church, much of which goes by various names, but centers much around Roman Catholic tradition, mysticism, and something called “contemplative prayer,” which appears to be for the purpose of getting people of all religions to come together in peace. Either we join in with this “unity” of religion, or we are tagged as “extremists” or “radicals” who must be silenced. They are very much putting the pressure on evangelical Christians to not hold on to what divides people, i.e. the gospel, but to join in the effort to work side-by-side peaceably with people of all walks of life, and of all religions, and to adopt a social gospel absent of the cross of Christ in people’s lives.
Yet, a social gospel doesn’t save anyone. It may make people feel good for a time, and they may enjoy what they believe is peace, for a time, but this peace is not peace with God, but is a false peace which ultimately denies the One and Only True God, and which follows after the god of this world, Satan. Jesus Christ did not die on a cross so we could unite ourselves with other religions in world peace. He didn’t come to bring peace to the earth, but a sword – to turn family members against one another, not in the sense of fighting against one another, but he was speaking of the outcome of what he knew would most certainly take place when people began to get radicalized about following Jesus Christ. When people become true followers of Jesus Christ, and they begin to share the gospel with others so they can be saved from sin, too, Satan doesn’t like it, so he goes on the offensive by influencing others to hate, reject, persecute and even kill us for our testimonies for Christ.
Yet, there is hope. Jesus Christ came to save sinners. He died that we might die to sin and live to righteousness, not through human effort or good works, but through submission to the cross of Christ in our lives and via allowing the Holy Spirit to take control. Jesus said that if anyone wants to come after him, we must deny self, take up our cross daily (die daily to sin and self) and follow (obey) him. He said if we hold on to our old lives (of living for sin and self) we will lose them for eternity, but if we lose our lives (die with Christ to sin), we will gain eternal life. Jesus Christ died that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us who walk not after the flesh but according to the Spirit. He died that we might no longer live for ourselves, but for him who gave himself up for us. That is radical! That is extreme! Yet, faith in Jesus Christ means death to sin so that we can live to righteousness. This is true grace! And, it is what guarantees us eternal life with God.
He Lifted Our Burdens / An Original Work / February 15, 2014
Based off Isaiah 9:2-7
People walk in darkness.
They abide in their sin.
It has power o’er them.
True belief escapes them.
Jesus Christ came to save them.
He gave His life up for them;
Crucified; died for our sin,
So we might be forgiven,
And have life up in heaven.
Many come to know Him.
God’s love now o’erflows them.
They rejoice in vict’ry.
Their sin is but hist’ry.
We were once bound in slav’ry.
Jesus lifted our burdens;
Set us now free from Satan,
So we now walk in freedom.
Sin has no more dominion.
Praise be to our Savior!
He showed us His favor.
He took all our burdens;
Cast them all upon Him.
He is our mediator;
The Light which shines in darkness.
Counselor in our troubles;
He gives peace now in our hearts;
Joy which is everlasting.
