THE BIBLE AND KARL MARX

It was from these passages that Karl Marx received the inspiration for his communist Manifesto…

Acts 2: 42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers.

43 Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved.

Acts 4: 32 Now the large group of those who believed were of one heart and mind, and no one said that any of his possessions was his own, but instead they held everything in common. 33 And the apostles were giving testimony with great power to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was on all of them. 34 For there was not a needy person among them, because all those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet. This was then distributed for each person’s basic needs.

It was from these passages that Karl Marx received the inspiration for his communist Manifesto. It is a noble sounding idea but there are several things to note here:

  • That which works for Christians, empowered by the Spirit of God, is doomed for failure if attempted by godless pagans, outside of the Kingdom of God.
  • This sharing was their idea. It was not commanded by God.
  • Nowhere, in Scripture, are we commanded to follow their example.
  • It did not work in Jerusalem.

The next time we hear of Jerusalem, there is a famine and the Christians there are starving. Paul spends much of his ministry and many words, in his Epistles, collecting money for the poor in Jerusalem. He spends a considerable part of both First and Second Corinthians and a part of the book of Romans, on fund raising to rescue the poor and starving Christians in the Holy City. It is notable that that which started out as a noble idea, resulted in starvation, even among the Saints of God.

1 Corinthians 16: 2 On the first day of the week, each of you is to set something aside and save in keeping with how he prospers, so that no collections will need to be made when I come. 3 When I arrive, I will send with letters those you recommend to carry your gracious gift to Jerusalem.

Communism has a remarkable record. It has led every single nation where it has taken root, into massive and un-survivable poverty. It has never succeeded, not even once, in any nation on earth. In spite of that, University professors, in Universities around the world, remain enamored with the idea and politicians have discovered that, there being more poor than rich in the world, the promise of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, will get them elected repeatedly, even after a lifetime of failing to carry through with their promises.

Look at the people who now hate communism in Venezuela… Following free elections in which they have repeatedly and overwhelmingly voted for the Commie who promised them free everything all the time, forever!

Chavez and Obama were best buddies. They both shared Fidel Castro as their number one hero. Maduro is the handpicked follower of Chavez, carrying on the policies instituted by Chavez.

  • I was in Venezuela the night the clouds cried, whole barrios slid down the mountainside in Caracas and the people elected Chavez the first time.
  • I was in Venezuela when Chavez lead his first coup against the government.
  • I remember when he bombed Caracas and the presidential palace. That was the night that bullets kept landing on the tin roof of my little house.
  • I remember when Chavez walked into the TV Station and murdered the News Anchor, in cold blood, on national television.
  • I remember how he fled to the then communist country of Peru, for asylum.
  • I remember when the next President pardoned him.
  • I remember how the great killer ran for president on the promise of taking all the money from working people and giving it to the unemployable.
  • I remember how shocked I was the day he won…
  • What does not shock me is how it has turned out.

Satan is famous for producing noble sounding ideals that never work. Even Right-Wing, American ideals have been sold as “Christian Ideals,” when, in fact, they were demonic ideals. Be very careful of the noble idea, sold by the slick politician…

THE AMAZING GULLIBILITY OF THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN

It is true that, in 1776, the majority of Americans were believing Christians. It is for that reason that early documents, such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, present demonic ideas and ideals in Christian language and in a manner intentionally designed to deceive Believers.

It is a lie to state that our Government, designed by Jesuits, Masons and Deists, was ever Christian. Satan is the god of this world and for better or worse, all governments are under his control. The Devil offered Jesus Christ, “all the kingdoms of this world.” He had the right and the ability to do that because they are all part of the Kingdom of Darkness; they are the Kingdoms of this World. The United States of America is no exception.

Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)

The Kingdom of this World will become the Kingdom of our God, but not until the Angel blows the seventh and final trumpet. Meanwhile, no matter how badly Babylonian Christians want to believe otherwise, the United States of America remains the most powerful nation in the Kingdom of Darkness and Donald Trump, no matter how many of his lies you insist on believing, is the leader of that nation.

Those who would insist that Donald Trump is better than Hillary Clinton or any other American Leader, are deceived. Joseph Stalin killed more people than Adolph Hitler. We could argue that Hitler was the better leader. Hitler killed more Jews than Stalin. We could argue that Stalin was the better man. Donald Trump is the King of Babylon. Donald Trump is the most powerful leader in the Kingdom of Darkness.

The Kingdom of Darkness is at war with the Kingdom of Heaven. Donald Trump is leading the war against God and against Jesus Christ. Meanwhile, half of all American Christians are so deceived as to believe that he is a Prince of God, sent to save them. This, they must believe, because they are, first and foremost, Americans. All of their life, their security, their happiness, their hope and their future is tied up in the United States. If America should fall, everything they hold as precious and necessary to life would fail. God cannot allow that to happen. If America dies, God dies with her.

Wishful thinking replaces Scripture and crowds out common sense.

We have invaded the Middle East, killing millions of people and destabilizing nations, because we are the Good Guys. Really? Their leaders were mean. We did the right thing by killing them and causing the death of hundreds of thousands of their citizens, because we are “Good” and they were “evil”. Really? We were trying to fight Al-Qaeda. We trained and armed Al-Qaeda. We are after ISIS. We trained and armed ISIS. This is retribution for 9/11. Anyone willing to look beyond their prejudice knows that 9/11 was a false flag. We are the good guys. Really?

Compare that to the atrocity that is the Congo. Only World War Two has claimed more lives than the war in the Congo. Rebel Leaders in the Congo have killed more people than Hitler and Stalin combined. So far, the United States of America has invested less than $10,000 in the effort to bring peace to the Congo. We are the good guys?

  • There is Petroleum in the Middle East.
  • Damascus sits on top of the largest petroleum field ever discovered.
  • North Korea threatens those who produce the goods we consume and threatens to nuke our military bases.
  • The Congo has no natural resources and poses no threat to our economy or our lives.

We have invaded nations that have done us no harm and killed millions of people in the pursuit of oil. In spite of that, Babylonian Christians will continue to insist that we are God’s Country and Trump is God’s man, sent to save us so that we can sin another day.

Did God allow Trump to be placed in power? Yes. The same God who allowed Israel to install Saul as their first King, allowed Manasseh to ascend to the throne as their last King. The Same God who called Abraham, allowed Israel to be carried off into captivity.

You folks have a choice. You can open your eyes and see the truth or you can bury your head in the sand. You can accept the truth or you can insist on wishful thinking; finding refuge in ignorance… Your choice…

The Kingdom of Darkness or the Kingdom of Light… Are you American or Christian? Where is your heart?

Will your God die with America?

THE TERRIFIED AND THE IGNORANT

Under every post on war or trouble or trials or tribulations, beneath every post on End-Times Prophecy, you will find them; comments from the terrified and the ignorant Christianites and Christianettes. They almost always include a verse or two that includes the phrase “Fear not…” The commentator, his or her fear showing through the misspelled and misplaced words, informs us that, in times like these, we should not be afraid. Follow up questions and answers quickly reveal a fearful soul who is, almost always, totally ignorant of the issue being discussed.

In their fear, these Babylonian Christianites and etts, assume that anyone posting such horrifying pictures, with such terrible headlines, must share their own fear, and most certainly are in need of spiritual comfort. Their assumption is that, either the poster of such information is posting it because they are very afraid or, worse, because they are a big Meany who has set out to terrify timid souls.

Ignorance, it seems, is their only refuge. They assume that if no one talks about it and if they do not know about it, it cannot hurt them…

That, is a lie from Hell!

Scripture tells us what to watch for. Jesus commands us to watch. If we did not know what to watch for, we would be guilty of willful ignorance. If we did not watch, we would be living in rebellion, sin, and in direct disobedience to the direct command of Jesus Christ. If we did not share the danger that we did see, we would be held guilty for the blood of everyone who died because we did not warn them.

We do not share because we are afraid.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love.

We do not share in order to frighten the timid; we share because:

  • Jesus commands us to watch. You cannot watch without seeing.
  • God commands us to sound the alarm.
  • God will hold us guilty if we do not.
  • We love the Brethren enough to share.
  • Others need to prepare for the destruction that is upon us.

When others share, I learn. When I share, others learn. Together, we are continually watching, thinking, and sharing. This is how the Elect of God are preparing.

Ezekiel 33:1 33 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’

If my posts frighten you… Good! Not posting terrifies me!

David…

FLAT EARTH EISEGESIS

Let us first, speak to “Eisegesis.” Eisegesis, simply enough, is using the Bible to prove what you already believe or what you want to believe.

Let us start with an extremely exaggerated example:

Let us say that I am a devoted, loving and Christian parent. My beloved child, seemingly out of nowhere, commits suicide. I do not want to believe that my child would go to Hell. I simply must believe that suicide is good and that God approves. I go to my Bible and find that at least seven people in the Bible killed themselves. More than that, among them were Prophets, Kings and Disciples… I carefully compile my list:

  1. [Abimelech] called hastily unto the young man his armour-bearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died (Judges 9:54).
  1. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed with all his might; and the house fell…upon all the people that were therein (Judges 16:30).
  1. Saul took a sword and fell on it (1 Sam. 31:4).
  1. When [Saul’s] armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise upon his sword, and died (1 Sam 31:5).
  1. When Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he…got him home to his house, to his city, and put his house in order, and hanged himself, and died (2 Sam. 17:23).
  1. It came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king’s house, and burnt the king’s house over him with fire, and died (1 Kings 16:18).
  1. [Judas] cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself (Matt. 27:5).

I am now certain that God approves of suicide. My beloved child is secure in God…. And, while I am still hurting, I decide that God would certainly want me to commit suicide so that I may be with my child…

That is eisegesis!

Let us go on to other things:

Let us say that, in my mind, I see God as a kindly Father. I read a verse that says that I can never be plucked from his hand. I like that and I start a Bible Study. While there are many verses on the subject, they are just about evenly divided between those that support Once Saved, Always Saved and those that speak to fear, trembling, being plucked from the vine and falling from grace.

I compile my lists… 20 verses supporting Eternal Security and 20 verses that speak to falling from Grace.

  • God is Good! I know that and so all of the verses that make God look like a good guy must be literal… Clearly, these verses mean what they say.
  • On the other hand, all of those verses that make God look like a bad guy, must be misquotes, mistranslations or simply false…
  • We all know, after all, that God, is a good guy!

Based on what I now “know,” I write a book and form a new denomination, built on the firm knowledge that, no matter what those mean and ugly verses might say, God would never cast away one of his children!

But what if I saw God as a mean and ugly judge? I would certainly take those same verses and declare that all of the verses that supported my view of God as a stern and awful Judge, were to be taken literally, while all of those verses that spoke of a kind and fatherly God who would show grace and mercy on his children, cannot possibly mean what they say…

Based on what I now “know,” I would certainly write a book and start a new denomination fixed on terror and the firm belief that the slightest infraction of the Law will bring down judgment, death and Hell.

FLAT EARTH

Please note: There is not one single verse, in all of Scripture, that informs us of the shape of the earth… Not even one. Not one verse says that it is flat. Not one verse says that it is a globe… Zero, Zilch, Nada.

On Flat Earth, I must start with an idea, a thought or a belief that comes from a source outside of Scripture… A book, a Facebook Post, a YouTube video or, in the beginning at least, the fertile imagination of one individual. Somehow, I come to believe that the earth must be flat. (For the vast majority of Modern “Flatearthers,” it came through Facebook or YouTube.)

Based on my belief that the earth must be flat, I follow the YouTube Guru or the Facebook Wizard to the Scriptures. There, he / she points out a handful of idioms, allegories and a little poetic language that, while none of it says the earth is flat, might seem to support the theory I so desperately want to believe. The fact that nearby verses speak to the skin on Job’s teeth and the pillars on which the foundations of the earth are firmly fixed be damned… Those things are obviously allegory but anything that backs up what I want to believe must, absolutely must be taken literally!

Now, armed with less than six passages which, while they do not say that the earth is flat, do seem to support what I want to believe, I make a video, go on Facebook, as an On-fire Evangelist for the Flat Earth Gospel! I am so very proud of my new found knowledge and this New Doctrine, that I leave Jesus in order to preach Flat Earth… After all, what is salvation if you can believe something that nobody else knows about yet?

And then come the Party-Poopers… They challenge your science and your theology, making you look like an idiot. If you have an Associate’s Degree in Dental Technology, certainly you can prove the scientists of the world wrong! If that doesn’t work, you can simply declare that all science is evil and scientists are of the Devil… That fixes it!

This is where Flatearthers divide into Clergy and Laity…

  • If you are a Dental Tech, a File Clerk at a College or some other kind of “Expert”, you become Clergy…
  • You write your own stuff,
  • you make your own YouTube channel and
  • start your own page on Facebook…

If no one follows you, not to worry:

  • you find the page of a non Flatearther and begin to preach your newfound religion in comments under their posts…
  • Do that often enough, and you will soon find yourself with your own following.

(This route is not suggested for those with less than a sixth-grade education.)

If you are not so educated as the YouTube Gurus or the Facebook Wizards, do not despair… There are thousands of Wizards and Gurus out there with posts to read and videos to watch… These poor people are in desperate need of followers… which is your purpose for existing…

If you do not know where to find your very own Wizard or Guru, follow the comments under my Facebook Posts… That is where they live…

PRAY THAT I AM WRONG!

If we get through 2017 and still live in a free country, I am going to be all over Facebook shouting, “I was wrong! Glory Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you Jesus! I was WRONG!”

Someone was talking with me about taking a cruise to the Caribbean next year. With my mindset, I replied, “If they are still letting people leave the country by then.” My response was not appreciated.

I cannot help it… Knowing what I know, it is difficult to imagine a future that includes the things that we have taken as normal life. My dream of the future is bound up in strife, war, persecution and death. The good part of my future is bound up in dreams of Heaven and the Millennial Kingdom. I cannot imagine my grandchildren growing up and living successful, productive lives in a free America. No matter how hard I try, I cannot picture that.

I engage in small talk about the future and I listen to Christians laying out their plans for the future. I try hard to smile and answer with only the most banal of answers; “Uh-Huh” and other non-comital grunts. In my head, I am screaming, “It ain’t gonna happen!” I hate playing that game.

No one has ever prayed so hard that their vision of the future was wrong. I pray, I wish, I hope that I am wrong. If we get through 2017 and still live in a free country, I am going to be all over Facebook shouting, “I was wrong! Glory Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you Jesus! I was WRONG!” I do not believe you will ever see those posts; I really don’t.

Please join with me in praying that I am wrong… but as you do so, please spend time building your relationship with Jesus Christ and preparing your heart, mind, body and soul for the worst.

  • If you build your dreams of the future around God, Heaven and the Millennial Kingdom, it will be much easier to face whatever happens in the meantime.
  • If you forsake all and take up your Cross now, there will be nothing for Satan to knock out from under you in the coming months and years.
  • If you renounce your citizenship, reject the pleasures of Babylon, and join the Kingdom of God now, it will be much easier on you the day Babylon burns.
  • If you are grounded in the Word of God now, it will be much harder for Satan to deceive you in the day of his appearing…

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

BUT

Revelation 7:9 After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands.

GET OUT OF BABYLON BEFORE IT BURNS!

David…
