Listen to this classic song by Jeoffrey Benward (a Texan I think).
Turn it up. The intro verse is a little hard to hear and you have to listen closely, then you will get goosebumps and chills up and down on the chorus. I first heard this song 18 years ago (I still have the record)... still has the same effect, still has a timely message... still needs to happen.
“I will build my church; and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)
“Occupy till I come.” (Luke 19:13)
“have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but REBUKE them.” (Ephesians 5:11)
The modern Christian Church has been infiltrated, hijacked, given a sex change operation, neutered, emasculated, feminized, paganized, secularized, and brainwashed with socialism and humanism... and transformed into the Apostate Church, the Great Harlot of Revelation full of abominations, committing fornication (crossing every moral boundary that God established—race, gender, age, common adultery, casual sex, and more). It is NO part of Christ’s Body. It is part of the Antichrist’s Body.
The True Church is supposed to have a sanitizing effect (which is the purpose of light and salt, both of which kill bacteria and are separated*) on the world around it. Instead, the modern false church is a PETRI DISH for all the abominations of the earth...!
[* Light and darkness do not “co-mingle” and God forbade any attempt at “fellowship”. Light dispels darkness, or darkness engulfs the light. Salt that is not preserved and kept segregated, aborbs the pollutants around it and is no longer salt; it may be “salt-like”, but it is not salt but a polluted solution.]
You reap what you sow.
Those who don’t stand up for what Christ stood up for, deny Christ.
Those who don’t choose sides don’t realize that they already have; and they are on the losing side.
“We wrestle not against flesh and blood” does NOT mean that flesh and blood is not an enemy and a real threat. The intention is that we do not MERELY wrestle against flesh and blood... the issue is that the SEAT OF AUTHORITY is spiritual darkness (the absence of all that is godly) in the unseen, real, spirit world that empowers wickedness in the physical world manifests its power and work through real flesh and blood evil. The spiritual realm is the head and heart; the physical realm are the very real tentacles that can and will strangle you if also ignored (unless God delivers via a miracle, stepping into our reality and changing our reality, either as a result of our obedience while praying for deliverance, our out of His Great Mercy even if His people are wallowing in sin and ignorance*).
[* The latter is less likely, especially in our day and age in which any person can lay his hands on many different copies of the Bible, often within second (internet). His Word contains His Will (His Law, His Commands, the unchanging Morality that He established). Those who do not read it and heed it will not be delivered; and thus, God is using evil to “cull” His flock and herd of all diseased members, to the point, the only ones who represent the Remnant that survives, are those who are repenting and obeying and crying out to Him having done what He commanded (not while holding hands with the world and espousing the world’s philosophy and expecting God to compromise and “get on board” and adapt to the 21st Century.]
The only way that we can so wrestle is to put on the full Armor of God. But God will not be with us (as He was not with Saul or Sampson, or the Israelites after the Ark of the Covenant was taken and God’s Glory, the Pillar of Cloud and Fire left them) if we are in sin and violating all that He commanded, all the while thinking that we are “so spiritual”. Yes, the flesh, the carnal nature often masquerades as “spirituality”—but a spirituality devoid of God’s Spirit, a spirituality in violation of all that He commanded. No one is so deluded as those “non-doctrinal” “anti-nomian” (those who believe that Christ abolished God’s Law) “Christians” who wallow in the false notion that they are “spiritual” because they have warm fuzzy emotions when they think of God’s Love—while they spurn what He commanded. In violation of Christ’s Commands and God’s Commands concerning international / interethnic relations and “evangelism” (the modern church’s perversion of the Great Commission), they think the Christian life in the world is little different than the flower girl walking down the aisle at a wedding—but they are trampling on Christ’s Body and giving that which is Holy to the dogs. God commanded separation. Christ said “It is not meet [proper] to take the children’s Bread and give it to the dogs”. Instead, not only have they given the children’s Bread [Christ] to the dogs, they have the dogs on the top of the table breeding with the Master’s children—thinking that the Master will be so pleased upon His Return...! They are under STRONGEST of delusion that God Himself has sent.
The only remedy is for those in delusion to cry out continually “Lord open my eyes! Turn me and I shall be turned!” until He does so. However, the very essense of delusion is that one is not aware of it; and those who reject the notion that they could be in delusion stubbornly will not so cry out—and thus they shall not be delivered. So polluted are their minds, the would crucify Christ again, were He again to be born and teach what He taught. Those who think that He taught warm-fuzzy multiculturalism and abolished God’s Law and “broke down all barriers” have never been called out of darkness into His Marvellous Light.
If the “Christian” church and “Christians” share ANY philosophy in common with the world, they are not of Christ. The world hates and despises what God commanded, and loves and worships what He forade. This is clearly evident in every area of life, and most blatantly in race and gender. God commanded His people to be separate—complete, forever—from all other peoples and those who mingled mingle their descendents out of the Family of God. God forbade perversions of the genders. God calls race-mixing and homo-perversion “abominations”. The world calls them both “wonderful” and they treat anyone who disagrees as the most-vile criminal possible. God pronounced a curse on those who call good evil and evil good, and who detract from or add to His Law and that is exactly what “Christians” and the “Christian” Church has done; tossing God’s Word aside as “obsolete” and “faulty”, and embracing the world’s agenda. Those who would be a friend of the world are the enemy of God — “adulterers and adulteresses”, God calls them. So polluted are their minds, they don’t think that such an accusation is really that important. They don’t even know what adultery is, nor its punishment; nor do they care. Thus, on the Day of Judgment, they will hear Christ declare, “I never knew you, depart from Me ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23).
[* Actually, “lawlessness” is the proper translation of the Greek anomia. Note that these people whom Christ shall reject will not be the dregs of society. They will be those who thought that they were “good Christians”. They will not be merely “pew sitters” and “nominal Christians”. They will be those who thought that they were doing “wonderful works in His Name”...! HOW can Christ call such people “lawless” and declare that He never knew them? —because His Spirit is not in them; they were never regenerated. They don’t know the Voice of the Shepherd, but follow strangers; they don’t know the True God, the worship a false god they have formed in their own minds (by the help of their polluted denomination and the world). God does not change. His Law does not change. Morality does not change. They have traded in what God commanded for what the world delights in and they are worldlians, not Christians; regardless of their delusion. Christ’s sheep know His Voice and follow [obey] Him. Christ said, “Why call ye Me, ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not the things that I say?” The answer is because He is not their Lord. If He were, they would obey Him. He had no Commands / Laws of His Own. He Himself obeyed those of the Father to show us the way. What part of, “THINK NOT that I am come to destroy the Law.... I am NOT come to destroy the Law... Not one jot or tittle shall pass from the Law” don’t they understand? They don’t understand because they are not His sheep or they are really really stupid sheep, or they have not yet been regenerated. If the Law does not exist, there is no need for anyone to be saved, and nothing to repent of or to; and no one can be guilty of “lawlessness”. God is not the one who is confused. Keeping the Law of God is not for salvation; it never was (that is another false notion of the polluted church); it cannot save. The Law is the Moral Code by which God commanded us to live forever. Keeping the Law to please God is a by-product of true salvation, which is evidence of the Presence of the Holy Spirit. See my, What’s Keeping God From Delivering America, Britain, and Europe From Destruction...? and Ten Commandments for Youth.]
Before God delivers, His people need to repent; otherwise, He does not even hear their prayers.
“If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (II Chronicles 7:14)
Without turning from what God forbade and turning to what He commanded, there is no repentance; only pseudo-spiritual delusion. Only when God’s people actually turn from other gods (all their false, humanistic notions and liberal, modernist pseudo-doctrine) will the Remnant of the True Church prevail against HELL.
Armies don’t carry their gates into battle with them. If the gates of Hell are under assault that means that the true Church is supposed to be ON THE OFFENSIVE ATTACKING THE GATES OF HELL, not meekly sitting in the corner sucking its thumb with its “security blankie” watching happy cartoons.
“Choose you this day!” If you don’t choose sides (God or the world*) you already have and you just don’t realize it (the nature determines the acts, not vice versa; and God determines the nature that each will have, as well as their delusions or conversion**)—and if you think that you have chosen God’s Side and yet you are DOING NOTHING... but secretly go through your life as an “undercover Christian”... then it is most probable that God has sent you strong delusion to believe a lie. Every tree is known by its fruit (and the majority of “Christians” produce toxic, rancid, or sterile / wax fruit). Trees that are sterile or have rotten fruit are not part of God’s Orchard. They may have been spuriously planted there by the Evil One, but one day they shall be hacked down and uprooted. Faith without works is dead—and the only works that are real and not counterfeit are the works God commanded in His Law: Holiness, righteousness, not by the power of the flesh, but by the regeneration Power of the Holy Spirit if we are truly in God. Morality never changes. God will not compromise and come over to sinful man’s side. The Remnant will be saved and the rest damned. What Christian society believed to be sin and abominations 100 years, ago, 500 years ago... what God decreed and declared to be sin and abominations 4,000 years ago still are and always will be. Fruit is a reflection of the tree. We are supposed to be children of light, reflecting His Light (Holiness) in Whose Image we were created. Most reflect perverse light that is not from God—and abominably call it God’s Light! A tree does not “become” an apple tree by bearing apples. An apple tree bears apples because that is what its Creator ordained for it to bear. A person does not “become” a child of God by keeping God’s Law; that is determined by the Will and Act of the Father in procreation. A child reveals by his obedience to the Father that he is an honorable son, whom the Father will bless, and cause to inherit of Him. Most “Christians” are following the Pied Piper of Babylon (“confusion by mixing”). What our ancestors practiced when they founded the United States, and what our ancestors practiced from the time of the Reformation all the way back to the founding of the Celtic, Germanic, Baltic, Slavic, and Norse nations—separation from alien peoples and preservations of their bloodlines, is what God commanded and God preserved our people for Millennia because He put His Spirit in them to keep them pure, even in their blindness. God promised to preserve a Remnant of HIS people; not merely “any rag-tag, motley crew of people” that will straggle into church for free donuts and coffee. God’s people are His sons—and He will not have aliens thrust into His Family. God’s people are symbolized as the bride of Christ—and Christ will not have an alien bride, or a bride not of His choosing, or a bride unwilling to recognize Him as LORD and SUBMIT to Him, thrust upon Him!
[* —and if you choose God then you will naturally bring forth fruit indicating that choice and not parrot and practice the pseudo-spiritual amalgamationist, gender perverse, pseudo-morality and nonsense of the world. God’s Fruit never changes. Morality never changes. Morality is forever established by God’s Declarations: “Thou shalt NOT!” and “THIS shalt thou DO!”
** See my book, Does God Repent? — Can God Change His Mind?]
The greatest threat to Christendom is the invasion of the Third World (and their reproduction and mongrelization of our people in our nations). The tearing down of our national monuments is merely a symptom of the internal festering disease and the the death of the body in not being concerned about fighting for life. As I have expressed in many dozens of Ruminations and books, this Third World invasion is the Flood that the Dragon spews out of his mouth (Revelation 12) to destroy the woman and her child (God’s true people—the true peoples of Christendom) and it is the LAST kingdom of this earth’s age (Daniel 2) in the dream-image (statue) of Chaldean Nebuchadnezzar, King of Bablyon. The feet and toes of iron (formerly strong), mingled with clay represents integration—which in the history of the world has always resulted in the end of any once-great civilization (and homoperversion is the last stage of the same disease).
Consider a few internet news sites / headlines:

Pooplosi needs to be evacuated like an impacted bowel! A Law needs to be passed in which politicians need to be implanted with a cyanide chip, in which, the first time that they tell a lie or try to commit treason, it is activated. See how many rush to be elected if that were made law. They don’t want to be elected to “serve”; but to “self-serve” and help destroy the nation, the Christian civilization our ancestors established, which stands in the way of their antichrist agenda of world domination.
“Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason” —Mark Twain
“Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.” —Ronald Reagan
“In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.... Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.... History in general, only informs us what bad government is. Blest is that nation whose silent course of happiness furnishes nothing for history to say.... Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.... God forbid that we should ever be twenty years without such rebellion.” —Thomas Jefferson
Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Samuel Adams, etc. today would all be considered leaders of “extremist hate groups” and “terrorists”. The vast majority of people in this country have no right to be here, and the majority of the rest do not deserve to be here.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” —Samuel Adams (speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776)
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety.” —Benjamin Franklin
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was and never will be.” —Thomas Jefferson

[See hundreds of other similar quotes in my series, America, Christianity, Liberty & Truth.]
The removal of all these statues is ILLEGAL. It is the TAXPAYERS who paid for those statues to be erected... the corrupt coterie of treasonous politicians HAVE NO RIGHT to remove them or destroy them WITHOUT ASKING THE TAXPAYERS THEMSELVES... —and they have no business asking the opinion of ungrateful aliens! These statues and monuments are government (the true people) property and their desecration and removal is a felony. Imagine if a bunch of white people damaged statues of Martin Lucifer King or whomever!
NOTE: The politicians should ask THE TAXPAYERS and THEIR CHILDREN and GRANDCHILDREN whose taxes PAID to erect them —NOT people on welfare. They have no right to vote. Likewise, government employees, public servants, politicians HAVE NO RIGHT to their own opinion for as long as they are in office! Jefferson said, “When a man assumes a public trust [office] he should consider himself public property”. Alien “immigrants” or “refugees” have no right to vote. Welfarites, politicians, aliens, gueses (even as prisoners) live off the taxpayers and have no voice of authority and their opinion is less than meaningless. The removal of these landmarks is a legal and moral issue—and not one controlled by mob rule or public opinion of the hateful heathen who do not even belong here. It is simple contract law. The contract cannot be violated without consent of those who were the lawful parties of the contract. THE CONSTITUTION CANNOT BE CHANGED. Anyone who attempts to do so is guilty of HIGH TREASON against the true government of the US—the TRUE PEOPLE. POLICITIANS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND PROSECUTED FOR THEIR CRIMES, as well as all those who are hired by communist agitators, and those agitators themselves need to be arrested and tried for High Treason, sedition, insurrection, and all their other crimes of subversion and demoralization.
The removal of our national monuments is THE FIRST STEP TO GENOCIDE. If our war dead don’t matter—WE DON’T MATTER!
IF PEOPLE DONT STAND UP NOW... when the water is at their ankles... they won’t when it is at their nose... and then it will be too late.
Robert, a judge in Georgia was suspended today because he opposed the tearing down of monuments. The destruction of public property is an illegal act and for a judge to be punished for opposing law breakers certainly sends a message that public opposition to the new cultural cleansing will be met with severe consequences.
And I am sure the church’s response to this will be: Let’s hold a revival meeting followed by a pot luck dinner. After all, does not the Bible teach that Silence is Golden?
Do they not realize that the churches are also symbols of bigotry, discrimination, and cultural elitism in the eyes of the new American cultural leaders? They too must be cleansed.
Consider this quote from Faith or Fear by Elliot Abrams:
Rabbi Leon Klenicki, supervisor of interfaith programs for the ADL expressed:
“I see it every time I leave the synagogue. On Saturday morning after the services, while going home, it is there, waiting for me, challenging me. It is the cross of a nearby church. Why does it disturb me? The fact is that Jews tend to view the [Holocaust] as the culmination of their degradation and persecution at the hand of the Christians. They see Christians by and large as persecutors.” (p. 38)
Faith or Fear is written by a a Jew and he shows how the Jews have been at war with Christianity from the moment they started arriving in America. Every public expression of faith, such as the above reaction to a cross, drives them insane. Their assorted political groups have been behind almost all of the legal rulings against public and school religious expressions.
Very similar to the snowflakes reaction to a MAGA hat.
Yes, the antichrists are very adept at turning tables and pretending to be victims when they are the perpetrators. Any “Christian” who thinks that the phrase, “Silence is golden” is in the Bible, ask him how much he is willing to wager. In 1831, the poet, Thomas Carlyle, translated an ancient Egyptian saying into English as: “Silence is golden, speech is silver”. The implication is evident in the properties and value of the two metals. To the contrary, to not speak in the face of sin, wickedness, immorality, abominations, injustice is itself a sin. When was Christ ever silent in the face of such? Those who do not imitate Christ are not Christians. Those who don’t know the Voice of the Shepherd are not of His flock. “To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not to him it is sin”.
“When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day, the battle is your calling, and peace has become sin. You must at the price of dearest peace lay your conviction bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith.” —Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920)
[Dutch theologian, statesman, journalist, and Prime Minister of the Netherlands (1901-1905).]
To cover sin, or to ignore it, is to be an accomplice in the sin. Our Founders and Forefathers did not “mutually pledge to each other” their “lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor” in order to secure the right to remain silent! King David, one of the purest hearts in all of Scripture declared,
“21Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate Thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against Thee? 22I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 23Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139)
Anyone ashamed of his Heavenly Father, his Heavenly Father’s Word, Decrees, Law, Morality, etc. will find that He is ashamed of them too, and they shall hear, “I never knew you!” Tell me, “What is the chaff to the wheat?” (Jeremiah 23:28) —what is the chaff to the husbandman (farmer)? The chaff is the dead, lifeless, USELESS outer hull of the wheat, which is winnowed (beaten) and which “the Wind (Holy Spirit) driveth away” (Psalm 1:4). Those who don’t want to be rejected need to repent of their worldly wickedness and get with GOD’s Program or be shut out of the Kingdom forever in outer darkness and torment.

This article overlooks several MAJOR ISSUES ...
[* —in addition to highlighting the fact that you don’t ask your plumber about digestive health or your barber about structural engineering. Though someone with a degree in biology, who researches wholelistic may understand a lot about nutrition and natural health, that does not mean that he has a clue about our Republican form of government, true philosophy, or morality. Furthermore, if a person’s concept of those three areas is not founded upon the Word of God, that person knows NOTHING about those areas, and is a blind man groping in the dark trying to convince others that he can see and that he knows the way. Those who reject God’s unchanging Standard of Morality are antichrists and even their minds are perverse (thinking black is white, bad is good, bitter is sweet).]
It is not the enemy’s right to define reality by calling something that they don’t like, “hate”, “racism”, or “white supremacy”. They have no right to invade someone elses nation and then proceed to make demands and tell us how things are going to be. Anyone who had a guest in his house who demonstrated such an attitude would be shown the door after the first reprimand was ignored. They themselves are clearly discriminating against, being intolerate and hateful of, are guilty of prejudice, and committing hate crimes against the only true citizens of Christendom. Tell me: What do you call it when nonwhites hurl feces and urine (or even blood or acid) at white people at a peaceful demonstration? Has ANYONE ever heard of white people doing this to nonwhites? ONLY ANIMALS, do this. I have only ever seen this done by monkeys or bears in the zoo! Yet non-whites and homoperverts (and other demented people like tree-hugging animal worshippers or Jews who resent people who speak the truth) do such things to decent people who have never harmed them in any way. While many so-called “White supremists” no doubt are “reprehensible to everyone”... I would venture to say that many more people would be considered “white supremists” if they actually had the courage to stand up and say what they truly believe (rather than silently ignoring the spread of evil and its oppression against and assault upon those who do stand up)... and the majority of those who hold to the TRADITIONAL and BIBLICAL view of the separation of the races are not reprehensible, but the pillars of society—as were the very FOUNDERS of our society and civilization. However, this article also does not address the issue that the MAJORITY of people in modern society (whites and nonwhites... nonperverse and perverse people) are ODIOUS and REPREHENSIBLE to the FOUNDERS of this REPUBLIC and to GOD and to all moral and decent people. If that were not the case we would not find ourselves in the situation in which we are in — in a SCREEEEAAAMMING TERMINAL VELOCITY NOSE-DIVE TOWARD GROUND ZERO and OBLIVION!
Our ancestors died to win the freedoms that we once enjoyed, which we have allowed to be stolen from us and the majority of those who call themselves Christians won’t get off their butts to stand up for anything... which shows they really don’t believe in anything. Christian Anglo-Irish stateman Edmund Burke expressed, “All that is required for evil to triumph over good is for good men to do nothing”. However, I add: —but if “good” men do nothing in the face of evil, they are not actually “good”; but deluded into thinking that they are any better than those who are evil. Christ said that He will VOMIT out of His Mouth (meaning, they will have no part in Him, they will be rejected) those who are lukewarm (fence-riders, silent tolerators). The Peacemakers of which Christ speaks are NOT those who make peace with evil! —but those who make peace among our own kinsmen when they have disputes. Peacemakers does NOT refer to compromisers! “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” (Matthew 5:9) “Children” here is a poor translation. The Greek word teknon refers to mere progeny. The Greek word here is hweeos, which is the more dignified “sons”. Sons, of course, is masculine, and in many cases the masculine sense of a male-son or man-child cannot be separated from the word. However, other times, the general meaning (even as mankind refers to both sexes of hu-man-kind) is what is intended. The meaning of hweeos, in addition to male, refers to an HONORABLE son, in a place of honor, authority, beloved of the father, in whom the father is pleased—paralleling the Hebrew word beyn, “son” which literally means, “builder of the family name”; one who honorably follows in the father’s footsteps (such as those godly Kings of Judah who followed in the footsteps of King David) as opposed to a son who is a disgrace to the family and actually works, in one way or another, actively or passively, to destroy the father and the family he sired (such as Esau and Absalom both did). Thus, the intention of son is an honorable child who will inherit of the father, and thus, in this sense, Christ’s declaration above in the beattitudes also parallels another declaration in the same sermon: “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (v.5, in which Christ was quoting Psalm 37:11). This “meek” refers NOT to those who allow wicked people to run roughshod over them and destroy Christendom. It refers to those who are meek toward GOD; that is, submissive, obedient. How many women in today’s society can claim to be meek, submissive, and obedient to their husbands...? As goes the Church so goes society. For this reason the majority of “Christians” will be rejected by Christ, Who will NOT take unto Himself a haughty, controlling, bitter, cold, silent, manipulating, unsubmissive, disobedient bride unwilling to gracefully and lovinly and completely accept His Rule. Wives who do not demonstrate this to their husbands in this life, quite possibly are not regenerate and shall be rejected of Christ. The husband by God’s Decree is head of the wife even as Christ is Head of the Church (Ephesians 5:23). A “Christian” wife who rejects the headship of her husband... what does that say about Christ being her head? “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” (Ephesians 5:24) The husband is God’s unimpeachable representative authority of God over the wife and his children. Wives who resist, rebel, and reject this are antichrist.
In a poll taken about the statues’ removal it was said over 60% said leave “them alone”. If you read the comments under this article you’ll find about 99.9% say “leave them alone”. The article is written by a yahoo liberal who hasn’t, apparently studied history. Oh, wait, maybe he did study history: in one of the liberal fascist colleges here in the formerly united States; the original colonies and most subsequent states that entered the union were all unabashedly Christian in their State Constitutions—and ALL of the original 13 Colonies were: and a UNION of those CHRISTIAN States could be no other (or they would not have entered the Union) and therefore, the U.S. Constitution did not have to be overtly Christian in its terminology because its intention was not to be a theological document, nor even an overriding Federal Constitution, but a uniting Constitution of those already-existing Christian States.
Again, for those who missed it from yesterday, this is quite apropos. Give it a quick read. Let it sink in. Keep in mind the headlines of today’s news, the few links that I shared earlier, along with the plethora of similar stories that pollute the headlines worldwide.
“1Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.
2Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.
3We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
4We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.
5Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.
6We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
7Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
8Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.
9We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
10Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.
[This is not referring to their genetic skin color. Lamentations 4:7 records: “Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire”. David was fair and ruddy (rosy-cheeked, red-haired); as were most Israelites and Hebrews (who are not one and the same people that now inhabit the land of Israel). Thus, v.10 here is most probably referring to the fact that in their mourning and despair, near death, like Job, they covered themselves in sackcloth and ashes. They were blackened from going through the ritual of repentance without actually repenting (though most “Christians” today don’t even go through the pretense of ritual). Or, it refers to those who had the “pallor of death” upon them; a grayness that Caucasians display from malnutrition and lack of body oxygen when near death. However, the word “black” in this passage is a mistranslation. The Hebrew word does not mean black, but “burning”. Also, the word does not specifically mean “oven” but “furnace”, literally “fire pot”. Thus, the intention is: “Even as everything that is thrown in a furnace is consumed by the burning, so also is our skin consumed by the famine.” During such famine, the skin seems to shrink, as all body fat disappears, muscle atrophies, and ribs and other bones begin to protrude exposing the wasted frame of the individual. This Hebrew word skin does not necessarily mean the dermal organ itself; but the body’s nakedness.
However, the important lesson is: Had they repented, God would have delivered. So it is in our day. But like a stubborn child who refuses to repent, despite the beating and the threatened future beating of the rebellious child, so wayward Christendom refuses, and thus all must suffer.]
11They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
12Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.
13They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under [were put to carrying] the wood.
14The elders have ceased from the gate [where they used to give counsel and adjudicate quarrels], the young men [have ceased] from their music.
15The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
16The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
17For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.
18Because of the mountain of Zion [nation of Israel], which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.
[Foxes are cowardly opportunists.]
19Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; Thy Throne [remainest] from generation to generation.
20Wherefore dost Thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
21Turn Thou us unto Thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
22But Thou hast utterly rejected us; Thou art very wroth against us.”
In order to repent, Christians need to realize what God expects. Christ said, “Not one jot or tittle shall pass from the Law”.
God expects obedience. John says in His epistle, those who don’t obey God’s Commandments don’t even know God. It is not “obedience” to “pick and choose” which laws you will “obey” or “submit to”. God's Law is not a “grab-bag / mix-and-match / do-it-yourself” special or a rummage table or a smorgasbord where you pick and choose what you want and leave the rest, and throw out in the garbage what does not please you. Obedience / submission is all or none.
Until we truly repent, and turn away from what God forbade, confess it as sin, and turn to doing what God commanded (not what the Apostate churches and false, lying prophets and blind pastors say) there will be no deliverance... and only the elect will survive the coming horror.
