‘A Degrading Form of Government’ (2013)

As the liberal death cult tries to stir up impeachment frenzy in America, and uses children on a global stage to stampede adults into accepting a global government, let’s pause and reflect on what kind of government sinful, fallen man usually winds up with.

This is the perversity of our sin nature: wherever there is liberty, you’ll find people clamoring for a king. Wherever there is dignity, you’ll find them stretched out on the ground kissing the earth the tyrant walks on.

It’s a dynamic of history, it never changes. There’s always someone, somewhere, or a group of fat-heads, somewhere, who wants to rule the whole shebang.

The globalists are pushing very, very hard for that today!

And Donald Trump stands in their way, so Donald Trump must go.

O Lord our God! Tread down your enemies, who hate your people for your sake.


A Dynamic of History: the Devourer

Genghis Khan’s piece of the world

The outward appearance of the world is always changing, but the dynamics of history never change.

One of those dynamics is this: there’s always somebody who wants to rule the world, a devourer of nations.

Pyrrhus wanted to conquer all the countries around the Mediterranean. He couldn’t have told you why. A woman killed him with a piece of a millstone: just like what happened to Ahimelech in Judges 9:53.

Alexander the Great conquered nations because he thought he was a god. Julius Caesar and his successors trampled other nations as their way of getting ahead in Roman politics.

Genghis Khan grabbed more of the earth’s surface than anyone; and God alone knows why.

Adolph Hitler tried to engulf Europe. His own ambition killed him.

Today there is no individual, no single nation, that’s out to conquer the world. But the dynamic of history remains. The new devourers of nations are globalists, consortia, an international gaggle of self-anointed big shots. Instead of Roman legions, they’ve got legions of lawyers. Instead of Panzer divisions, they’ve got waves and waves of “migrants.”

But it’s the same old thing, a yen to rule the world. The methodology has changed, but the motivation stays the same. Control everything and be as gods.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall have them in derision… (Psalm 2: 4)

When He stops laughing, then they will learn who is God and who is not.


A Truly Prolific Murderer

When Tamerlane, aka Timur, died, he had inscribed on his tomb, “When I rise from the dead, the world shall tremble.”

Tamerlane died in 1405, by which time he had succeeded in killing some 17 million people in Central Asia, the Middle East, India, and China–about 5% of the people on the planet at the time. Well, you can’t re-create Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire without breaking a few million eggs. That Tamerlane’s methods included what we would call extreme sadism did not seem to diminish his luster as “the Sword of Islam.” In fact, he’s venerated today throughout the Central Asian Muslim world–although the descendants of Muslims in other countries that he ravaged are somewhat less than nostalgic for him.

It is a dynamic of history that from time to time a conqueror rises up and tries to devour the human race. Alexander the Great, Pyrrhus, Genghis Khan, Hitler, Tamerlane–and we’re only counting the ones who actually got somewhere. Maybe Napoleon has the excuse that his wars might be called exigencies of self-defense: although that excuse wouldn’t have seemed too convincing while he was burning Moscow.

Dynamics of history don’t go away. People wish they’d go away, people think they’ve gone away: but they remain. Unless history itself ends, somewhere in the future is another Tamerlane. Meanwhile, we have to be content with the present globalist movement–they, too, want to rule the world, but their methods are much subtler than Tamerlane’s.

But there is only One Person who has the right to that throne: Jesus Christ, the Son of God. All the others are usurpers.
