Thoughts on Wrath of the Awakened Saxon
“You can’t handle the truth!” (Jack Nicholson in the movie “A Few Good Men”)
Too many mindless, anti-intellectual “Christians” and patriots, who understand neither the Bible nor reality and the extent of the problem, think that our people are going to “rise up”. No. Far from it. I wrote years ago, Malheur was freedom’s last gasp. No one will stand up because 99.99999% are too cowardly to be the first, and no one is going to stand up because he knows that no one will even have his back—and this all has to be communicated telepathically, because even discussing standing up with others is illegally and unconstitutionally considered “sedition” (that is, unless you are a marxist, african, latino, or muslim). Too many HUMANISTS who think they are “Christians” think that our people are going to “rise up”... like 50 year olds still living in their minds in their high school or college football “glory days”. Wake up to reality. You are not 18 or 20 years old any more and life is more than a game of football. “Red Dawn” was a MOVIE, not reality. If you think a high school football team can take on the communist military... please go far, far away from me...! You are a lightening rod for disaster. God will see to it... like moths for the flame, you will be drawn to your Divinely appointed destiny... which is not mine.
We have been outnumbered and brainwashed and mongrelized into near extinction; Christ’s Return is the only hope: but He will not return for a rebellious bride unwilling to submit to all that He commanded; and God’s people refuse to repent, so God is culling His herd to the point that the only ones who will survive are those who are repenting. Revelation refers to the “patience” or rather PERSEVERANCE of the saints being only those who have the Faith / Testimony of Christ Jesus and who keep the Commandments of God—all of them: that is what MORALITY is; and it is not “pick and choose”, repentance is not “mix and match”; it is ALL or NONE. As I have long written, “Why should God deliver us from what we are willing to tolerate?” Those who refuse to repent before God—embrace the (third world) flood: It’s coming for YOU. That is why He has sent it! However, a PESTILENCE of BUBONIC proportion is what God will use to give us a little respite; the Dragon vomits forth a flood to overtake us, but God will cause the earth to help the woman to receive the flood... that is, a pestilence... and only those of God’s people whose hearts are right, who are obedient, who confess Christ, will survive a la Psalm 91.
Do something! (the RIGHT thing).
Support those who are standing up.
Spread the word.
Don’t be silent.
Don’t be a coward.
Stand up! — or shut up and embrace the tsunami.
“To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not to him it is sin.” (James 4:17)
“But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in Heaven.” (Matthew 10:33)
”But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (I Timothy 5:8)
Confessing or denying Christ is not merely assenting fondness of a name. It is standing up for what Christ would have stood up for. It is standing up for the Truth. For morality. For Christendom.
“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)
“And how we burned in the labor camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive, and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if people had not simply sat there, palling with terror, but had understood that they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up an ambush of a half-dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The cursed machine would have ground to a halt. If, if, if! We didn't love freedom enough. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” —Aleksandr Solzhenitzen
“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph, is that good men do nothing.” —Sir Edmund Burke
[—but if good men do nothing in the face of evil, they are not good men!]

By the way, Kipling’s poem was actually titled, “The Beginnings” and was published in 1917 in his book, A Diversity of Creatures and the phrase was not “the Saxon”, but the English. It reads:
It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.
They were not easily moved,
They were icy willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.
Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.
It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.
It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate.

Are you a soldier of the cross or are you AWOL or a “spiritual conscientious objector”...?
“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” (II Timothy 2:4)
—and a true soldier does not simply ignore the war (and is not oblivious that an actual war is going on); nor will he join in fellowship with the enemy...! (which means he recognizes the difference between “us” and “them”; between God’s people and His enemies).
“He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.” (Matthew 12:30)
—someone who is against Christ is called “an enemy”, even “Antichrist”...! Words and sentiments are irrelevant; obedience is what matters. “Why call ye Me, ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not the things I say?” What is Christ gathering...? HIS sheep. What do those who scatter do? —give up His sheep to the wolves by gathering dogs and swine.
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
“Am I a Soldier of the Cross?”
Am I a soldier of the cross,
A follow’r of the Lamb?
And shall I fear to own His cause,
Or blush to speak His name??
Must I be carried to the skies
On flow’ry beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?
Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?
Sure I must fight if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord;
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.
Thy saints in all this glorious war
Shall conquer, though they die;
They see the triumph from afar,
By faith’s discerning eye.
When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all Thy armies shine
In robes of vict’ry through the skies,
The glory shall be Thine.
