Progressive Socialism – Party of Deception & Death

democrat - progressives...same game different names.

(Hyperlinks highlighted in red)


“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future” – Adolf Hitler

Progressivism – It’s all about POWER – Elitism

Progressive-Socialist Elites in America, beginning with John Dewey in the early 1900’s, successfully strategized a formula of ideological implementation in the late 1950’s, early 1960’s by the infusion of Darwinian Evolutionary Theory into America’s classrooms in 1963 subsequent to the removal of Jesus Christ via Engel v. Vitale (1962). Darwin’s Evolution idea was the perfect conveyance of palatable deception to infuse Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Moral Relativism into mainstream American thought.

“The pathetic thing about it is that many scientists are trying to prove the doctrine of evolution, which no science can do.” – Dr. Robert A. Milikan, physicist and Nobel Prize winner

Progressive’s knew that as long as an overwhelming number of American citizens were obedient and faithful to Biblical values and the moral, ethical, leadership of the Lord Jesus Christ, Progressivism had no portal for changing the conservative, patriotic, moral, hearts of America’s faithful; therefore, historical revisionism, Moral Relativism, Atheism, are necessary to infuse the genesis of Socialism and elitist control over the masses.

“Often has a cold shudder run through me, and I have asked myself whether I may not have devoted myself to a fantasy.” – Charles Darwin, Life and Letters.”

atheism - good enough for these guys

Darwinian Evolutionary Theory will be seen by historians in the future, if my Lord tarries, as the most profound, destructive, “ruse” to have been cast upon mankind subsequent to “The Lie” of Lucifer in the Genesis of Creation. Darwinian Evolutionary Theory is a baseless ideology of demonic filth with one primary objective i.e. negate, nullify, destroy the truth of the Biblical Genesis account of Creation thereby nullifying the authority of our Creator, Jesus Christ, thereby nullifying the authority of Scripture, thereby nullifying the truth of God’s dominion, thereby nullifying mankind’s need for redemption from sin and any concerns for the consequences of aberrant, rebellious, sinful behavior. Darwin’s deception will be seen as the impetus for the American Holocaust – pervasive child mutilation via Roe v. Wade (1973) and the affirming of unencumbered aberrant sexual perversion via Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) – an undeniable attack on the Biblical Family Unit (the foundation for societal sustainability) – An unconscionable cheapening of the value of human life and dignity promulgating America’s current culture of death.

“All of us who study the origin of life find that the more we look into it, the more we feel it is too complex to have evolved anywhere. We all believe as an article of faith that life evolved from dead matter on this planet. It is just that life’s complexity is so great, it is hard for us to imagine that it did.” – Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel Prize winner

democrat - change the label all you want we know you areLong story short…Progressivism in 21st-Century America has successfully brainwashed two-successive generations of American youth (with only a relatively few exceptions) and turned them into radical Atheists, Humanists, Secularists, Socialists, who are now poised to take the helm of leadership in American society and American government. Never, in the history of America, has there been such a large segment of the populous that radically adheres to the demonic tenets of Satanism-Atheism-Secularism-Humanism-Moral Relativism. America’s public education system no longer teaches children HOW to think but WHAT to think.

hitler - let me control the textbooks and I ll control the state

“The theories of evolution, with which our studious youth have been deceived, constitute actually a dogma that all the world continues to teach; but each in his specialty, the zoologist or the botanist, ascertains that none of the explanations furnished is adequate…It results from this summary, that the theory of evolution is impossible.” – Paul Lemoine, Director of the Paris Natural History Museum, Professor of The Geological Society of France, and editor of the Encyclopedie Francaise

In 21st-Century America, the entire Progressive Agenda surrounds this most important deception: demanding the “right” to mutilate the pre-born child in the name of freedom/choice/convenience and the “right” to engage in every form of aberrant-unconscionable sexual perversion and force, coerce, the faithful in America to advocate and support and glamorize this demonic Morally Relativistic deathstyle. All other political mantra chanted by the Progressive-Socialist is fodder for the facade of their true agenda – their perceived “right” to live a life free from the moral constraints of the Living God and to pursue gratification of the flesh – Narcissism – Hedonism – at all costs and to force those who object to this unconscionable immorality into silence, subservience through legislation and public condemnation.

“For myself, as, no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.” – Aldous Huxley, atheist, writer, novelist, philosopher

Essentially, the Progressive-Socialist has conquered America by aligning with the debased-nature of mankind and seductively infusing acceptance of this deathstyle through all forms of media, America’s educational system, historical revisionism, Biblical revisionism and ultimately legislation via legal precedent – a bastardization of the Founders intent relevant to the United States Judiciary.

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 (NASB) Holy Bible

Solution?

America will continue to falter and fall prey to the death of Socialism – Moral Relativism – the infusion of Radical Islam unless President Trump takes the affirmative steps to initiate a full-repeal of Roe v. Wade (1973). “Let the States Decide” if they desire the blood of innocence defiling their land. President Trump must extricate the United States Federal Government out of the “business” of child sacrifice, child mutilation. The Faithful in America must turn back to the LORD and fervently pray for revival and restoration.

America was founded on the tenets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it is Jesus Christ who has sustained America for 242-years. President Trump is America’s Sabbath given by our LORD Jesus Christ that our Nation might turn away from its infanticide and its compromise with unencumbered sexual perversion. Our LORD Jesus Christ will not bless America with goodness, righteousness, sustainability as long as the United States Federal Government espouses the shedding of innocent blood, the mutilation of God’s children on the altar of convenience via Roe.

Roe v. Wade (1973) (video) is wholly unconstitutional and violates the tortured and mutilated child’s 5th and 14th Amendment “due process” protections; Roe v. Wade (1973) is demonically inspired child sacrifice and our LORD “hates the hands that shed innocent blood.” (Proverbs 6:17)

Socialists and Socialism must be methodically weeded out of America’s public education system and methodically extricated from our Federal, State and Local Government either by voluntary consent of the Socialists themselves, a Convention of States via Article V, by force through prohibitive legislation or Civil War. America’s Constitutional Republic cannot be sustained while simultaneously infused with the metastasizing cancers of Socialism, moral relativism, nihilism, atheism.

The “theory” of Evolution is nothing more than a pagan religion (video); therefore, allow the local community and school board to decide if they want Evolution, Biblical Creationism or neither taught in their public schools. Remove the lies of Evolution from of our children’s textbooks and simply teach science, math, reading, history void the subject of origin and permit mom’s and dad’s and Churches to serve as the spiritual educators in a child’s life. With that said, there is no arguing the point that instruction in Evolution in our public schools begets atheism, socialism, communism, moral relativism, humanism…a very important consideration when deciding what is most advantageous for our children’s future and the future of America.

“…and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14 NASB)

 Conclusion

Though President Trump is giving up his health, his reputation, his pursuit of wealth and comfort to Make America Great Again, understand that in the political hallways of deception there awaits numerous Progressive-Millennial’s fully prepared to implement the demonic Progressive Agenda into American Government. America’s Constitutional Republic cannot be sustained when the Progressive Ideology of Moral Relativism is the primary constraint on human behavior. Without an abiding faith and allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ having been internalized by an overwhelming number of American Citizens, there are simply insufficient numbers of police officers, prosecutors, judges and penal institutions to maintain order in a society governed under the auspices of a Constitutional Republic; therefore, Socialistic-Progressivism necessitates the infusion of an omnipotent-omniscient Federal Government inundated with Socialist-Elites espousing their demonic view of morality; therefore, it will be necessary to control the subservient masses via a classless-powerless-defenseless society where the voices of the faithful, the patriotic, will be stamped-out and ultimately silenced.

In response to Woodrow Wilson’s destructive ideology of Progressivism, President Calvin Coolidge, July 5, 1926, stated…

A spring will cease to flow if its source be dried up; a tree will wither if its roots be destroyed. In its main features the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. It is a declaration not of material but of spiritual conceptions. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man – these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and their roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. Unless the faith of the American people in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish. We cannot continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause.

democrat - great civilizations are not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within

baby in arms REPEAL ROE 2
America will NEVER begin the process of healing and restoration until the United States Congress extricates the United States Federal Government out of the “business” of Infanticide by fully repealing the unconstitutional SCOTUS decision of Roe v. Wade (1973) – an unconscionable violation of the 5th and 14th Amendment “due process” protections. America is defiled with the blood of innocence that cries to our Heavenly Father for justice.  If this Congressional Repeal is successful, it will require, at a minimum, two-generations of American’s having matured in a society that respects life and honors the Lord Jesus Christ before America could begin to heal and enjoy even a modicum of restoration. America is dying from its compromise with Infanticide and Immorality but so few will listen and even fewer desire to do what must be done in order to survive.

Atheist asks “The Most Difficult Question”

A necessary response to the Atheistic article shared on Twitter at https://twitter.com/vjack/status/952865605652307968 by titled:

Sunday, January 14, 2018 The Most Difficult Questions When It Comes To Being Saved By Faith

Excerpt from Atheist’s article:

The major religions of the world, particularly Christianity and Islam, emphasize the importance of belief in the right god and right religion at the moment of death. Christianity is split between whether belief alone gets you saved, or whether belief plus the right deeds and behaviors gets you saved. Either way, the right belief upon death is almost always part of the equation.

So what does god do when you have a person with two heads?


Response to article – an explanation and answer to the “Most Difficult Questions When It Comes to Being Saved By Faith”

by Rickey D. Holtsclaw, @RickeyDale07 (Twitter) (Editing in progress)

The corruption of the Human Genome resulting from sin/rebellion does not thwart or negate the plans and purposes of our Omniscient and Omnipotent Creator. When there exists two-minds and one-body there exists two-spirits, one for each cognitive entity that will give an account to the Lord Jesus Christ at the Eternal Judgment.  Though these beautiful ladies strive in one-body while constrained within this realm of “time,” if they trust and obey the Lord Jesus Christ, they will each be blessed with a sinless body of perfection in the soon to come Kingdom of God…for in the coming Kingdom, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, the crippled will walk and give glory to our beautiful and compassionate Creator-Jesus Christ…paradise lost in the Genesis of Mankind will be paradise restored in the coming Kingdom of God.

Jesus - rev 21 4 he will wipe away every tear from their eyes and there will no longer be any death

Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ – Explained

In response to the false description of salvation articulated within paragraph-one of the attached Atheistic article…

True Christianity, that which is exclusively obedient to the Gospel of Jesus Christ void the demonic influence of denominations, cults or sects, is NOT confused regarding faith and works.

No man or woman can find righteousness (a right standing) before our Creator-Jesus Christ void faith and obedience. The man or woman seeking forgiveness of sin and righteousness with our Lord must FIRST approach the Lord with “faith” by believing that our Lord Jesus Christ is exactly Who He has said He is in His Word [God] and that our Lord is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. In other words,

Faith…

1) One must diligently seek the Creator in faith by believing that Jesus Christ is Lord-God and that He died for our sins.

Jesus - he that cometh to god must believe tht he is and a rewarder of those who seek him

Jesus - you will die in your sins
Note: In this Scripture, understand that the “He” is italicized and added for clarification, but Jesus Christ is saying here, unless you believe that “I AM,” you will die in your sins. In the Exodus, when Moses inquired of the Lord seeking the Lord’s Name, our God said…”I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”  (Exodus 3:14) Jesus Christ  is saying that unless you believe that “I AM” [God], you will die in your sins.
Jesus - Confess with your mouth believe in your heart

Gift of the Holy Spirit…

2) Subsequent to “believing” and trusting that God is True, that person receives the Gift-the Guarantee of their relationship with our Creator by receiving the Holy Spirit who takes-up residence within the believer and renews and strengthens the believer to live a life that is worthy and reflective of the holiness of our God.

Jesus - holy spirit received the holy spirit of promise after confession trusting in jesus

jesus - holy spirit will guide you in truth
It is ONLY by the indwelling Holy Spirit that man can understand the deeper truths of God’s Word and form a loving, trusting, obedient, relationship with God the Father, through the Son, Jesus Christ.
jesus - spiritually dead man
The “natural man” is anyone man or woman who has not trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ and is therefore lost and absent the power, knowledge and wisdom only available through the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Repentance – Obedience

3) In the process of redemption-salvation, REPENTANCE IS MANDATORY! In other words, the one who comes to God seeking forgiveness of sin must agree to repent/stop/turn away from their sinful/rebellious behavior. This is ONLY possible by obedience to the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Jesus - repentance - Luke 13 3-5 unless you repent you too will all perish

Works – Obedience: A Sign of Salvation’s Authenticity

4) Behavior/works then, and only then, becomes relevant in that the believer does not trust in works to find a right standing with God, but “good works” and “good behavior” and “good deeds” are the manifestation of having a secure relationship with our Loving and Compassionate God…the “good works” are the “evidence” of one’s authentic salvation. As it is written, “Faith without works is dead.”

Jesus - faith without works is dead

jesus - you will know them by their fruits or works

Again, mankind can NEVER “work” or be good enough to find favor in the sight of our HOLY, Just, God, but “good works” follow faith, redemption through “obedience.” There is no salvation or relationship unless one is “obedient” to the Son of God, Jesus Christ. As it is written, “He who believes in the Son has Eternal Life, but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God remains on him.”

Jesus - by grace through faith not works

jesus - he who has the son has life but he that does not obey son shall not see life NASB

Clarification: I don’t want the reader to believe that absolute perfection in behavior and thought is expected from the believer in order for salvation to be made possible or maintained for this is not possible in our sinful bodies. Why? Though a man or woman has trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ and received the indwelling Holy Spirit, we must continue to deal with, to struggle with our sinful nature inherited from our father, Adam. We will not rid ourselves of this rebellious nature until the death of this body of flesh, but…with that said, the truly faithful, the redeemed, those who have received the indwelling Holy Spirit CANNOT continue to live a life of “wilful sin and disobedience.” The redeemed child of God is no longer a slave to the desires of this World…but…do we still sin??? Unfortunately, yes! There are times when we, in our flesh, in a moment of weakness, will disappoint our Lord – BUT – the relevant distinction or differentiation between a child of God and one who is lost and “in the World” is the “response” to our sin.

When the lost-unredeemed individual sins…there may be a hint of remorse, generally nothing more, but when the child of God sins, there is IMMEDIATE conviction by the Holy Spirit and the child of God seeks forgiveness for their sin…NOT to maintain their salvation, but to maintain a close, intimate, relationship with our Lord. You see, once the believer has experienced the love of God in their life, this love is so consuming and over-powering and intimately beautiful that the child of God wants NOTHING to interrupt that relationship. Our sin creates a relational chasm between the Lord and the believer…the believer’s salvation is “SECURE” for Eternity, but sin drives a wedge between intimacy-relationship – there is a loss of joy and peace; therefore, the child of God confesses his/her sin to our Lord and requests forgiveness and in response our Lord is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin and restore the intimacy of relationship.

jesus - if we confess our sin he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin

jesus - all that come to me i will in no way cast out

Jesus - no one snatch them out of my hand
Our Lord’s beautiful promise to those who truly love Him and seek to honor Him now and throughout Eternity.

Please don’t misunderstand my meaning here…simply because an individual makes a profession of faith or “believes” they are a Child of the Living God – A Christian, it is the behavior, the works, the deeds, the “lifestyle” that is the “evidence” of true salvation and relationship with our Lord. Be warned, many will approach the Lord Jesus Christ in the Day of Judgment and find that they have lived in self-deception for they were never truly a child of God and my Lord will order them to depart from His presence because He never knew them as His Child. It is their disobedience to my Lord’s will that is the indicator, the tell-tale sign of their unfaithfulness and lack of belief. As my Lord has warned, only those who endure to the end will be saved.

Jesus - many will come to me on that day

jesus - he who endures to the end shall be saved

jesus - sower and the seed matthew 13 18-23

A true, faithful, child of the Living God has the assurance of God’s Salvation by the change in desire/life’s priorities that comes from knowing and loving the Living God and the power and strength of the Holy Spirit living within them. As a Christian matures in their knowledge of God through study of God’s Word and prayer and obedience, that maturity is accompanied by assurance, understanding, strength, knowledge of the Spiritual, an all encompassing love for our Creator-Jesus Christ and an all encompassing desire to live and serve the Living God…by this, we “know” we are children of God.

jesus - we know we are children of god

In the following Scripture, note the confession of the Apostle Paul, one of the most committed and beloved men of the Bible who penned most of the New Testament. Listen to his heart and confession about our struggle with sin…

Jesus - Romans 7 14-25

See Paul’s answer to this most profound question…“Who will set me free from the body of death?”

Jesus - Romans 7 21-25

Again, as those who love and adore the Lord Jesus Christ, we will never attain absolute perfection in word and deed while encapsulated within this Earthly body of sin and death, but the believer no longer lives in sin or desires sin and strives moment-by-moment with the power of the Holy Spirit to live a life that is honorable to our Lord. When we fail, we acknowledge our failure through prayer and our Lord is faithful to restore us, to support us as a loving and compassionate Father who desires to provide us an abundant life of joy and peace, now and throughout Eternity.

Baptism

5. The believer, in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, should submit to “baptism” as a public profession of their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. Baptism does not “save” anyone; baptism is simply an act of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ and His will for every believer. In the act of Baptism, the believer is symbolically participating in and publicly acknowledging their faith in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

jesus - baptism go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the

In Conclusion…

Finally, the process of salvation is critically important because every man and woman has sinned against our Holy, Just, God; therefore, we are under a death-penalty. Jesus Christ-Yeshua is God who entered time from Eternity and clothed Himself in human flesh to live a perfect, sinless, life thereby meeting the only acceptable standard for the payment of sin…the shedding of innocent blood. Jesus willingly walked to the horrific death of Crucifixion on a Roman Cross to pay the sin-debt of mankind (your debt, my debt)…a debt that mankind could NOT pay. When a man, woman or child humbles their self before the Lord and believes that Jesus died for them and prayerfully asks God the Father to forgive them of sin and save them from Eternal death, God will NEVER turn away anyone who honestly, truly, faithfully, humbly, seeks Him for our God desires that all men, women, children, be saved and come to a knowledge of the Truth.

Jesus - for all have sinned

john-3-16

jesus - all men be saved

Jesus - God did not send the Son to condemn the world
Jesus is proclaiming why He left Eternity and entered Time, not to condemn mankind but to save mankind and provide everyone who trusts in Him with an abundant life – knowledge – wisdom – understanding – peace – contentment – assurance – LOVE and RELATIONSHIP for Eternity. The “thief” spoken of by Jesus is Satan – a liar, a thief, a murderer and deceiver.

Remember this, it is not OUR good works/our OUR self-righteousness that “saves” us from the death penalty of sin, but when we trust in Jesus Christ as Lord, we receive the imputation of Jesus’ Righteousness over our life and God the Father, through His grace (unmerited favor), chooses to no longer see our sin but He sees ONLY the righteousness of His Faithful Son – Jesus Christ-Yeshua our Lord. With Jesus Christ as our Mediator, we are therefore, NOT GUILTY!

Jesus - one god

To God be the glory for His Compassion and Mercy,

Atheism – The Crippled Mind

In the 21st-Century, sophistication, enlightenment, self-sufficiency, entitlement, Moral Relativism, SCIENCE, mock and scoff at the concept of the Spiritual, Creationism, God, Sin, Redemption, Heaven, Hell, The Kingdom of God. Know this: Progressivism-Socialism-Democratic Party initiatives/agenda i.e. Evolution, Abortion, Moral Relativism, Unencumbered Sexual Perversion, Atheism, Humanism, Secularism all emanate from the Pit of Hell and are authored by the Father of Lies and Death – Satan. Two successive generations of American youth have been institutionally and demonically programmed to seek the Portal of Hell while America’s Constitutional Republic is being systematically dismantled and destroyed – how?

atheist - only people fighting what they swear does not exist

********************

Interacting with the demonic, the deceived, the lost and dying Atheist on Twitter has certainly been an eye-opening experience. I have observed some rather consistent themes in the Atheistic World as these self-proclaimed “free-thinkers” angrily rebut my Christian positioning.

atheism - the religion of atheism

First of all…

Though it should come as no real surprise, I’ve noted that many who have succumbed to the lies and deception of Atheism are members of the LGBTQ Cult[ure]. I don’t know if the decision to engage in homosexual conduct preceded the fall to Atheism or if Atheism, the rejection of Jesus Christ-our Creator, was the impetus for succumbing to the deathstyle of aberrant sexual perversion.

I do know that my Lord’s Word, as articulated in the first-chapter of Romans, does develop a time-line or chronology of unbelief giving-way to a “debased mind” and subsequently the pursuit of aberrant sexual desire.

jesus - romans 1 18-32 better copy

 

Second…

During my discussions with the Atheist/Humanist/Secularist/Moral Relativist, I find they are almost exclusively the victims of Evolutionary deception.  I believe there are possibly two plausible explanations for the Atheist having fallen victim to this lie from Hell.

“There are only two possibilities as to how life arose: one is spontaneous generation arising to evolution, the other is a supernatural act of God. There is no third possibility. Spontaneous generation that life arose from non-living matter was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others. That leaves us with only one possible conclusion, that life arose as a creative act of God. I will not accept that philosophically because I do not want to believe in God, therefore I will believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation arising to evolution.” Dr. George Wald, Professor Emeritus at Harvard, a Nobel Prize winner in biology

evolution - deceivers in education professors data that does not exist
Darwinian Evolutionary Theory is the most destructive ruse to have been cast upon mankind subsequent to “The Lie” of Lucifer in The Book of Genesis. Evolution seeks to negate the Genesis account of Creation and promulgates Atheism-Humanism-Secularism-Moral Relativism thereby deceiving the soul of mankind to seek the Portal of Hell in spiritual deception culminating in Eternal death.
  1. The infusion of Darwinian Evolutionary Theory into America’s classrooms in 1963 (a strategy of the Progressive-Socialist Agenda) to the almost complete exclusion of Creationism.  (One year subsequent to the SCOTUS ruling of Engel v. Vitale/1962) This point is evidenced by noting the vast numbers of atheists within the Millennial Generation who are at the correct age to have internalized the lies of Evolution through every successive grade-level. Do not be deceived, Evolution promulgates Atheism and these are blood-brothers emanating from the Pit of Hell. Darwin’s Evolution idea was the perfect conveyance of palatable deception to infuse Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Moral Relativism into mainstream American thought; after all, Darwinism inspired Hitler’s success in Nazi Germany, why not America via America’s youth as well?
  2. It is also possible, to a lesser extent, that Evolution fits neatly into the Atheistic-Homosexual paradigm by making every attempt to negate the Genesis of God’s Creative account thereby negating the foundation for the Word of God thereby  negating the Authority of God thereby negating any form or sense of culpability relevant to the Atheist-Homosexual rebellion to the edicts of God’s Word thereby negating the Eternal Judgment (the second death) for having rejected the Written Word of God and the Living Word of God – Jesus Christ/Yeshua. Complete self-deception paving the pathway to the Portal of Hell.

jesus - evolution - see to it that no one takes you capative through philosophy and empty deception according to the traditons of men

evolution - religion of evolution

Third…

Another interesting Atheistic theme is the Atheist’s overwhelming affiliation with the Progressive-Socialist-Democratic agenda and the lies of historical revisionism denying America’s Christian heritage. This is not surprising seeing that the Progressive-Socialist Party (Former Democratic Party) espouses, promotes, the demonic deception of LGBTQ and has even pursued a “protected class” status for those who participate in aberrant sexual perversion. Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) (Same-sex “marriage”) is a manifestation of the Progressive-Socialist agenda that spits in the face of our Creator who created us “male and female,” but this unconscionable compromise with death and perversity secures a Progressive voting-base comprised of the sexually perverse under the auspices of “tolerance,” inclusion,  freedom and Political Correctness.

“For myself, as, no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.” – Aldous Huxley, atheist, writer, novelist, philosopher

democrat - progressives...same game different names.

democrat - saul alinsky useful idiots newspaper article

Also, the Progressive-Socialist Agenda is rabid Anti-Christian/Anti-Christian God and pro-Allah/Islam i.e. Satan.  This is surprising seeing that Jesus Christ died to set the Homosexual free from the demonic chains of sexual perversity and the Islamic god-Allah (Satan) seeks to kill the Homosexual through adherence to the tenets of Sharia Law. This anti-God positioning of the Progressive-Socialist aligns perfectly with the Atheistic-Humanistic-Secularist-Moral Relativist Ideology. Confirmation of Satan’s strategic role in this demonic conspiracy is evidenced by the Progressive-Socialist’s obsession with child mutilation via Roe v. Wade (1973).

How unconscionably demonic must an organization/a people group be to support the mutilation of babies by the millions (60-million+ American babies slaughtered since 1973) then advocate the retail-sale of baby body parts in the market place? Abortion providers allowing live aborted babies to lie dying or actively murdering the baby seeking fresh body parts to harvest thus garnering greater profit. And the Atheist has the gall to rebut my argument that they are covert Satanists.

A couple of important items before I conclude…

The Atheist-Evolutionist will argue that only through free-thinking, logic and reason (The Atheistic god i.e. SCIENCE) can man understand the deeper truths of the Universe and mankind’s genesis. The Atheist, in their self-endowed intellectual superiority, laugh and mock the Christian and blaspheme the Word of the “Bronze-Aged” Book, the Holy Bible. Our conversation generally concludes with my adamant request that the Atheist-Evolutionist provide me an explanation of origin. I desire to know their explanation for the origin of the constituent matter that forms the Universe and all of life. I’ve recently posited this question to Mr. Steven Hawking (a lesser god of the Atheist) – I’m awaiting a response.

atheists - actually believe nothing made the Earth

The Truth is, science and the emissaries of Satan through such men as Hitches, Dawkins, Hawking, will NEVER explain origin because all that we see, the atom, the constituent elements that form our existence emanate from the unseen – spiritual World; therefore, origin is beyond man’s comprehension/intellect for our mind is constrained by the elemental factors within “time.” The finite will never explain or define the infinite. That which is created cannot fully comprehend the Eternal Creator for He is beyond knowledge though our Lord Jesus Christ actively demonstrated/introduced the unknowable God some 2017-years ago.

jesus - god is byond knowledge

Jesus - he who has seen me has seen the father

Jesus - all things hold together -full verse colossians 1 15
Speaking of Jesus Christ-Yeshua/Our Creator…
Jesus - In the beginning was the Word John 1
Jesus Christ-Yeshua-Elohim- is the Living “Word” of God!

produced for NASA by the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics…

“The ultimate mystery is inspiring new ideas and new experiments.

No one knows how the first space, time, and matter arose. And scientists are grappling with even deeper questions. If there was nothing to begin with, then where did the laws of nature come from? How did the universe “know” how to proceed? And why do the laws of nature produce a universe that is so hospitable to life? As difficult as these questions are, scientists are attempting to address them with bold new ideas – and new experiments to test those ideas.”

https://www.cfa.harvard.edu/seuforum/bb_whycare.htm

My point is, anyone who rejects the Gift of God’s Salvation through faith in and obedience to Jesus Christ/Yeshua is crippled mentally for it is not possible to comprehend the deeper truths of our Creator without the Spirit of God dwelling within the soul of the individual seeking Truth and Knowledge. Understand this, when a man or woman humbly, honesty, desperately, seeks to know God the Father through the Son, Jesus Christ…when one places their faith and trust in the life, death, burial, resurrection of Messiah-Yeshua-Jesus…that individual is given, as a promise/a guarantee of their salvation, the Gift of the Holy Spirit who dwells within every redeemed man and woman and child. It is ONLY by the Holy Spirit and our faithfulness/obedience to Him that mankind can know the deep and incredible truths of the Spirit and Eternity and Destiny and Purpose and Reason.

Jesus - he that cometh to god must believe tht he is and a rewarder of those who seek him

The Atheist/Secularist/Humanist/Moral Relativist are cognitively crippled/impaired for they can only comprehend the things of the finite world, the carnal, the temporary, ultimately the futile and only through faith and obedience to Jesus Christ can one understand that which is Eternal and ONLY the Spirit of God can reveal these secrets.

jesus - holy spirit will guide you in truth.jpg

In conclusion…

Finally…Know that every man, woman, has sinned against our Holy, Just, Righteous, Creator and is therefore under a death penalty….ONLY by trusting in and obedience to Jesus Christ as Lord/Savior/Mediator can YOU find LIFE, righteousness (a right standing) before the Living God who will judge the living and the dead…beware and prepare adequately by trusting in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and an assurance of life and peace in the coming Kingdom of God!

Jesus - one god

Codex Sinaiticus – some notes

A collection of facts with references relevant to the Codex Sinaiticus…

Two of the oldest complete (or nearly complete) manuscripts are the Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus. They are both written on parchment, and have a large number of corrections written over the original text.

Codex Sinaiticus, also known as “Aleph” (the Hebrew letter א), was found by Count Tischendorf in 1859 at the Monastery of St Catherine on Mount Sinai. Portions of the manuscript were found in the monastery dump, and a larger portion was presented to Tischendorf by one of the monks. It is a large codex, with 400 pages (or leaves) comprising about half of the Old Testament in the Septuagint version and the full New Testament. It has been dated to the second half of the 4th century and has been highly valued by Bible scholars in their efforts to reconstruct the original biblical text. Sinaiticus has heavily influenced the translation work of modern Bible versions. Though it is considered by some scholars to represent an original form of the text, it is also recognized as the most heavily corrected early New Testament manuscript.

There is much to be learned from examining these and other ancient texts, and they should continue to be highly valued by scholars. While there may be differences in opinion as to how they are to be used, one thing is certain—even with their textual variations, they show us that God has preserved His Word through the ages. We may debate the particular wording in a few passages, but the fact remains that over 90 percent of the New Testament text is unanimously supported by all the ancient manuscripts. In those passages where the proper reading is disputed, there is no major doctrinal change, and we can rest assured that we have the accurate, revealed words of God passed down to us.

See: https://www.gotquestions.org/Codex-Sinaiticus-Vaticanus.html


  • The CNN article notes that many of the changes are as minor as “the alteration of a single letter,” while the BBC News article states that “many of the other alterations and differences are minor.” Indeed, we examined several discrepancies; the omitted verses are, almost across the board, not central to the biblical accounts. For example, consider two of the verses missing: Matthew 23:14 and Luke 17:36. Removing those verses does not change the Bible from saying that Jesus is Lord to saying that He isn’t, or from saying that Jesus rose again to saying that He didn’t. If a person were to try to strike all verses from the Bible that recorded miracles or Jesus’s claims to be God, the result would be a very different (and far longer) list of missing verses.
  • Many modern Bible translations either exclude or bracket the verses in question, anyway. For instance, the New American Standard Bible and the Holman Christian Standard Bible put such verses in brackets and note that some manuscripts omit the bracketed text. The New King James Version does not bracket such verses but does footnote that some manuscripts omit the passages. The New International Version excludes the verses entirely. So it’s not as if the missing verses are presented by modern English translations as original when they really might not be; most modern versions acknowledge that there is some uncertainty over whether or not the verses were part of the original, inspired manuscripts. And, again, since these verses are not central to Christianity, it’s less of an issue than some suggest.
  • The Bible didn’t drop out of the sky in completed form; we recognize the role of inspired and godly individuals in recording, collecting, and preserving God’s Word. From the time of the Apostles’ ministry to the closing of the canon, fragments of both genuine and fake gospels circulated (though the latter only later). Human copyists and translators through the centuries could introduce an error—accidentally or intentionally—just as easily as any of us could today (and the Codex Sinaiticus has missing Old Testament fragments as well). The existence of minimally divergent manuscripts shows the role of human error but, conversely, elevates the important role of the early church in weighing the evidence and clarifying which books were canonical and which were erroneous (again, by accident or by intent). Likewise, the inclusion of Apocryphal books may have been done for historical purposes, even though the early church consistently rejected these books as canonical.
  • As always, presuppositions come into play. If two versions of a book are slightly different, does that mean one has added material or that the other has deleted material? Furthermore, there is no concrete way to determine (1) which extant manuscript was first (the Codex Sinaiticus or the Codex Vaticanus), (2) the content of manuscripts that no longer exist, or (3) whether just because a manuscript is the oldest means it is the most accurate copy.
  • Ignored by news reports is how similar the codex is to the today’s Bible. The media points out the few, mostly minor, discrepancies but ignores the fact that the essential message of the New Testament remains unchanged.

Ultimately, believers and unbelievers alike are faced with a key question, “Who would die for a lie?” And if all the supernatural doctrines of Christianity were introduced after the fact (as some skeptics believe), why do the earliest manuscripts not omit all references to Christ’s deity, the miracles, the Resurrection, etc.? The Codex Sinaiticus is an interesting insight into early church history, and while it reminds us of the important role copyists and others played in preserving God’s Word, its age and similarity to today’s translation confirm, rather than dispute, the Bible’s accuracy.

FYI – “Oldest Bible” DOES include resurrection

I was recently asked “How are Christians dealing with the resurrection not appearing in the Bible recently published online as the worlds oldest bible?”
I thought you might be interested in my answer:

I take it you are talking about the “codex sinaiticus” The resurrection does appear in all four gospels… However there is a part of mark that is “missing” this really isn’t news. Most modern bibles note that some manuscripts don’t include the end. The codex itself is something scholars have had access to for some time, although it was split up. It’s not actually that old compared to many of the other manuscripts (4th century vs 1st Century). The media has reported poorly on this. I am excited to have it online though. It is a VERY important manuscript.

However it is not oldest manuscript

Also it does not leave out the resurrection anywhere but does “omit” appearances of Jesus to many people FOLLOWING the resurrection at the end of MARK (one of four gospels)

The way Christians deal with that is pretty simple.
1) We either believe that particular section is not “inspired”
2) We believe it was an Oral tradition similar to the “women caught in adultery” passage that was added by a scribe, but validated in the process of Canonization (my personal take)
3) We don’t care… or some other perspective

Atheism-Satanism – Birds of a Feather

The Atheist revels in foolishness and darkness for they are the children of Satan and seek the “second death” as a result of rebellion, deception, naiveté. Compounding this tragedy is the fact that the Atheist is not content with seeking the fires of Hell alone, they clamor to entice millions to join them.  In America and around the World, they are exceedingly successful.

As we near the “day of the Lord” and “the Kingdom of God,” take note that the soul of everyone who rejects the Gift of God’s Salvation through faith, trust, obedience, to the Lord Jesus Christ will, instantaneously upon death of the body, be relegated to Hades awaiting the Great White Throne Judgment. At this Judgment before the Lord Jesus Christ, the Atheist will be found guilty of having disobeyed the Lord’s Commands/Edicts and will subsequently suffer the second death in the fires of Hell.

Why the Hell and Brimstone comment? Life is short, our Lord is near and there is no time for Political Correctness and “feelings.” The primary purpose of our “life” in the realm of “time” is to prepare for Eternity. God the Father is seeking those who desire to serve Him faithfully in the coming Kingdom of God. If you desire LIFE on a New Earth that is free from sin, disease, death, I urge you to repent of your sin, seek forgiveness and obey the Son of God – Jesus Christ our Lord. If you desire eternal death, deny the Son and live in disobedience to His will for your life…you will reap what you sow!

jesus - he who has the son has life but he that does not obey son shall not see life NASB

jesus - end time prophecies rev 20 14 then death and hades were thrown into the lake of fire this is the second death

Eschatology-Prophecy & Israel’s Capital – Jerusalem

Today is 06 December 2017 and is a date I believe will “live in infamy” as does 07 December 1941. Why?

The purpose of this article is to provide some very interesting talking points relevant to what I believe are undeniable “signs of the times.”  What I mean by that is the fact that our Lord articulated that no one knows the day or the hour of His return, “that Day” of the Apocalypse, but I do believe my Lord has alluded to the fact that we can know the “season” of His return by observing His Chosen People, the Jewish Nation of Israel.

Jesus - no one knows the hour

I am not going to enter into a deep eschatological study of current events and attempt to impress you with Hebrew, Greek renderings of the Scriptures, but only provide you with a brief overview of what has transpired since the 1940’s until today and let you take the evidence where it leads.

For hundreds-of-years, eschatologists could not comprehend the Biblical Prophecies relevant to the Apocalypse due to the fact that the Nation of Israel no longer existed subsequent to the complete and utter destruction of Jerusalem by Titus and the Tenth-Roman Legion in 70 AD. The Jewish Tribes were scattered throughout the World…how would Israel ever achieve Nationhood again?

Then our Lord, using Satan’s evil intent in the Jewish Holocaust of the 1940’s, placed the desire for a Nation of refuge into the hearts and minds of the Jewish people with the motto “Never Again.” Never again would the Jewish People be the slaves and downtrodden of the World; therefore, Jewish leaders began a push toward Nationhood/Statehood.

In 1948, it was decided that the small piece of desert land formerly given to Abraham by the Lord would become the Nation of Israel once again and thus the eschatological time-clock was set, once again, into motion.

In 1967, the Six-Day War, the Nation of Israel won back the City of Jerusalem.  The entire Apocalypse surrounds the City of Jerusalem; the possession of Jerusalem by the Jewish People will be the impetus for the overwhelming hatred and retribution by the Muslim/Islamic Nations of the Middle East that initiates the Apocalypse (in my opinion). But what is the catalyst that will initiate a call-to-arms against Israel by its Muslim Neighbors? Here, I believe, is possibly why today, 06 December 2017, is a most significant eschatological event.

Today, 06 December 2017, United States President, Donald J. Trump, will support the relocation of Israel’s Capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as well as the relocation of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – this decision will most assuredly incite the wrath of those who hate the Nation of Israel as spoken of in Jesus’ Revelation to the Apostle John.

Considering the resurgence of antisemitism; the nuclear programs of Iran, N. Korea, Pakistan, Russia; the struggles of Russia to regain diplomatic significance; the growth of China and its military; the weakening of America by rampant abortion and immorality having alienated the Lord Jesus Christ (as in the Days of Noah), the pieces of Biblical Prophecy are fitting perfectly together and though I do not know the day or the hour, the signs of the times are undeniable.

Again, I am not going to bore you with all of the intricate details and reference Scriptures, but I will leave you with a basic pictorial of what I believe is the relevance of 06 December 2017.

An Eternal Conflict Manifest in the Flesh…

The conflict between Jesus-Yeshua – Verses – Allah-Muhammad-Islam is nothing more than an Earthly manifestation in Time of the conflict that was initiated by Lucifer in the Heavenly Realm. In fact, if one studies and listens to the Holy Spirit, there is evidence strongly suggesting that the only viable reason for the creation of Time, the Universe, Mankind was our LORD’s plan to deal with Lucifer, Sin, the rebellious Angels while seeking to maintain volitional love with His created beings.  Islam is a manifestation of Lucifer-Satan-Allah and his false prophet, Muhammad, who is battling the will, the plan, the purposes of Jesus-Yeshua who entered Time 2017-years ago from Eternity to defeat Satan via the Crucifixion.  Ultimately, it will be Islam that will ignite the Apocalypse or the Day of the LORD.

Washington’s Thanksgiving Declaration Speech – 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor–and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

    Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be–That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

    And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions–to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789
