The Devil’s Crossroads

Image result for images of satan the deceiver

I keep coming back to the Humanist Manifesto II–why is it every pack of mountebanks and villains has a “manifesto”?–published in 1973, as the quintessential document of modern evil. Satanism, pseudo-science, statism and globalism: this is where they all come together. This is the devil’s crossroads.

They tell us in the first paragraph that belief in God must be abandoned: “Salvationism, based on mere affirmation, still appears as harmful, diverting people with false hopes of heaven hereafter.”

That’s okay, though. They’ve got an alternative.

“Using technology wisely, we can… alter the course of human evolution and cultural development…”  (https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto2/)    Among other things. You name it, technology will do it. Provided it isn’t busy getting hacked, updated, or just not working.

I mention this on a Sunday because we all need to be reminded, from time to time, what we’re up against.

This is spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) being carried out by its slaves and servants in low places. We are seeing this twaddle played out right before our eyes. No more truth! We are, now, whatever we say we are: we create ourselves from day to day!

Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin…

God’s patience is inexhaustible, but not unlimited. He will not grow weary: He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. But He is righteous, and He will not have this stuff in His Kingdom when Christ comes down again to claim it on the earth.

Of course the humanists claim they want to do good things, like conquer poverty and get rid of disease, abolish war, etc. They always seem to wind up with lots of barbed wire and dead bodies cluttering the landscape, whenever they take power. Their rejection of Almighty God is profound, as anyone but a pluperfect fool can see from their document. To reject God is to reject love. Case closed.

Two death cults confront God’s people in this fallen world: humanism and radical Islam.

And of the two, humanism is by far the more dangerous.


France: Live or Die

Image result for images of marine le pen with french flag

The future of France is on the line. This Sunday’s French presidential election will decide whether France will be France… or not.

Globalists are getting nervous because Marine Le Pen is rising in the polls ( http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/798621/Marine-Le-Pen-Emmanuel-Macron-French-election-Nicolas-Dupont-Aignan-Robert-Menard). She has come up with a campaign slogan that’ll be hard to beat: Choose France.

Her opponent, Emmanuel Macron, a globalist who has said he doesn’t believe there’s any such thing as a distinctive French culture, has taken a nasty knock in the polls and is said to be running out of gas.

Ms. Le Pen has pledged to pull France out of the European Union, deport illegal aliens, and defend her country against Muslim cultural assault. As for her opponent, she has summed him up: “The country Mr. Macron wants is no longer France; it’s a space, a wasteland, a trading room where there are only consumers and producers.”

Sounds like a lot of people we know in every country! Our own included.

Marine Le Pen is more than just a candidate for president of France.

She is a candidate for the real hope and change that all our countries need, instead of the poisonous pap that’s been forced down our throats by “leaders” who despise us.

Our ultimate hope for ultimate change is, and must only be, in Jesus Christ Our Lord, the King of Kings. We know that no one we can elect to any position can rescue us from our sins. And the world is the way it is because of no other reason but our sin.

Nevertheless, we do have a duty to defeat, whenever we’re given the freedom to try, those persons whose plans for us are intrinsically and overtly wicked.

And it is no sin to love the countries that God gave us.

Vive Marine Le Pen!

Vive la France!


Global Warming Zillionaires

Image result for images of al gore filthy rich

An international cabal organized by Al “$$$” Gore, the Energy Transitions Commission, wants the nations of the world to fork over $15 trillion (!) to fight imaginary Global Warming.

But don’t be alarmed. They propose to collect it in mere $600 billion increments over the next twenty years ( http://dailycaller.com/2017/04/25/al-gores-new-group-demands-15-trillion-to-fight-global-warming/)

Here in New Jersey their Global Warming has been freezing our butts off for the past few days. Never mind–“The Science is settled, there’s no debate,” etc.

How much of this enormous amount of money is going to stick to their fingers? “Global Warmin’ been very, very good to me!”  And what good things won’t get done because $15 trillion wasn’t available to do them?

If anybody out there is still taken in by this, I’m disappointed in you.

The truth is that a lot of already rich and powerful people want to become even more rich and powerful, want to install a global government with themselves as lords of the world, and have already been caught lying and cheating innumerable times, trying to make it happen. They haven’t been caught committing murder yet, but don’t rule that out for the future.

They’ve got governments, the Pope, all the big nooze media, the teachers’ unions, and just about all the colleges and universities running before their chariot, believing they’ll all be cut in for a piece of the action once the world government’s in place.

You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things…

We have recourse through prayer to an all-mighty and all-righteous God, the judge of all the earth. For the only one who has a right to rule it all is Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

These others are but robbers and usurpers. May repentance find them before judgment overtakes them. In Jesus’ name, amen.


A Prayer for Courage

I do try to maintain my postmillenial morale–but the Lord knows it ain’t easy! Not when you’re covering the news, it ain’t.

O Lord our God, there are wicked persons everywhere trying to tear down everything that’s good, and estrange your people from their God. You don’t need me to tell you who they are and what they’re doing. It makes my head spin, just trying to keep up with it.

Father, we are your people, we belong to Jesus Christ our King. In His name we pray you to give us courage and to fortify our faith. Make us strong and enduring, resourceful, steadfast, and true, so that we might serve you as we should: and go before us, Lord, and tread down your enemies. Amen.


Movie Review: ‘Risen’

If you like “Bible movies,” Risen is a good one. And let me tell you the best thing about it.

It’s a single scene, starring an actor in a small part. Richard Atwill plays one of the Roman guards who was on duty at Jesus’ tomb when He rose from the dead, and he tries to tell you what is was like. It would be wrong of me to reveal any of the details. I highly recommend seeing it for yourself.

Risen is the story of a Roman army officer, Clavius–played with stern conviction by Joseph Fiennes–who is ordered by Pilate (Peter Firth) to track down Jesus’ body, arrest the disciples, and prove that the Resurrection was a hoax. And this without drawing a single paycheck from a modern teachers’ union.

There’s a lot of grim and even gruesome detail in this movie; but on the plus side, it’s a loving and realistic rendering of Jesus and His disciples. I would have liked to see more of Pilate’s inner conflict that the Scripture suggests, but you can’t have everything. Fiennes is really good, and so are all the actors playing the apostles. There’s a trace of Catholic bias in it, but that really shouldn’t be a major problem for the viewer.

On the whole, though, the screenplay sticks fairly close to Scripture. No movie can be a substitute for the Bible. But a good one might draw a viewer nearer to it.


One of the Coolest Verses in the Bible

Image result for 15th Century Servant

St. Paul wrote the Epistle to the Philippians from Rome, where he was awaiting trial for assorted thought crimes against the state (some things never change). In closing his letter, he said,\

All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household. (Philippians 4:22)

Caesar’s household! Christians–right there in the very heart of the Roman Empire. Right there in Caesar’s house! And this less than 40 years after Jesus Christ was crucified–by Rome.

The Romans should have known that they were licked right there. Nevertheless, they went on to kill and jail as many Christians as they could lay their hands on. All those early Christians had to do, to save themselves from painful and humiliating deaths, was to deny Jesus Christ.

They didn’t.

And Christ did not and will not deny them.


The Messiah Has Come!

I am writing this through tears of joy.

Yes, “Bible movies” can be problematic, and are certainly no substitute for Scripture. Nevertheless, this scene from The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), in which Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead–well, what can I say? I’m overcome!

This helps me to imagine what it would have been like to have been there, on the scene, to witness this miracle. It would have been overwhelming.

If you cannot believe in Jesus by the things He said, or by the things the prophets said about Him–then believe in Him for the sake of the works which He did, which no one else could ever do. This is what He taught us.

Amen!


An Easter Prayer

Image result for images of christ enthroned

Father in Heaven, on this day, the day between Good Friday and Easter, we proclaim that Jesus Christ Our Lord was dead and laid in a tomb, prior to His Resurrection. We proclaim these things as truth, now and forever.

Lord, this is an evil age. We have important people, even religious leaders, even leaders in the Church, making Christ equal with other gods who are no gods, and making unbelief equal with faithfulness to Jesus Christ. And because we see as men see, the things we see make even many of your saints downhearted.

We are your people, the sheep of your hand. Make us also, O Lord, your oxen, strong to labor.

Grant power to this Easter holiday, power to enthrone Christ, whose right it is to rule Creation: power to enthrone Him on the earth, and power to enthrone Him in our hearts. We cannot know when You, Father, will send your Son back to earth: that day, be it tomorrow or a thousand years from now, is known only to you. But Jesus’ throne can be set up in our hearts now.

O Lord Our God, whatever your timetable may be (for a thousand years in your sight is as a watch in the night), exalt Our Savior among the heathen, exalt Him in the earth: and let Him be exalted now, even now, in our hearts.

In Jesus’ name, amen.


For Today: Psalm 110

This is a psalm about the Messiah, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It words provide no comfort to His enemies; but to us who love Him, they are sweet.

This is Good Friday, marking His humiliation and torment and death on the Cross–for us. For you and for me.

This Psalm is about what happens afterward.


How Infirm a Foundation

Image result for images of blatant lies

I fear the long-term consequences, whatever they might turn out to be, of basing a whole civilization on a foundation of lies.

I’m not talking about the little, everyday lies that are part of human life in a fallen world. No. I mean great, thumping lies–not silly opinions, not mere mistakes, but actual bodacious whoppers: like, for instance, that whole business of “I identify as something that I’m most certainly not,” for which various government agencies are poised to punish you if you don’t believe in them. Untruths upon which public policy is based, like Man-Made Climate Change. Things that simply aren’t true. But power is brought to bear against anyone who tries to deny those things.

It hit home for me yesterday, when I went from writing about the big, hulking, smirking man who “won” a women’s weight-lifting title, with all the nooze media slavishly calling him “her,” to reading in my Bible, John 8:40-47, in which Jesus, unable to persuade some Pharisees that He was telling them the truth when He said He was sent to them from God, concluded that they were wedded to a lie.

“If God were your father,” Jesus said, “ye would love me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

“Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”

Ye are not of God.

Our universities teach that there is no such thing as truth–only “your truth” or “my truth.” There are no facts: only whatever helps the Left politically, or doesn’t help.

And so, leftids, you’ve convinced me–convinced me that your whole secular humanist, globalist, heaven-here-on-earth enterprise is owned, lock, stock, and barrel, by Satan, the father of lies.

Is it harmless for a man to say he’s a woman, and for all sorts of important and influential people–nooze media, government, the Olympic committee, multitudes of college professors and teacher unions–to support him in this claim, and demand that everybody else support him, too, or else?

No, it’s not harmless: because it amounts to foolish, sinful mortals setting themselves up as having the authority to re-define, and overthrow, God’s created natural order, as if they themselves were God.

And we know where that comes from, and we know where it’s going. Selah.
