Here in 2023 the United States of America stands on the brink of total collapse. If you disagree with this beginning statement, then this is not the article for you. This imminent collapse will be a total collapse of our society which includes, but is not limited to, our financial system, our social structures, our civil institutions including politics, and our technology. How deep and how devastating this collapse will be I do not know, but every collapse of an "empire" historically has followed a moral collapse of that society, usually exhibited in human sexuality and the sacrifice of that society's richest resources: their children. I am not, of course, the only person in America who holds this view, the view that America is on the brink of collapse. The evidence is overwhelming that a great "reset" is imminent. Accepting this presupposition as true, or at least likely to be true, then the question before us is what do we do now? How do we prepare for this imminent collapse of the once powerful American Empire? Sadly, it is impossible to even discuss the solutions to the problems all of us face in America today, unless we can acknowledge that we have ALL been deceived, and that the first step is to come out of the deception and step into the light of the truth. And to do that, we need to first stop listening to and following the false prophets controlling the narratives through "media," whether it is the corporate media, social media, or the "alternative" media. "For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
The frenzy surrounding the Sound of Freedom fictional movie has gone from hype, to insanity, to now blasphemy. Hollywood actor Jim Caviezel appeared on Fox News and stated that "we have to do a lot more" to rescue children being trafficked, and that Donald Trump was the one who was going to rescue trafficked children. "I'm still Jesus, but he (Trump) is Moses." If you are a true disciple of Jesus Christ, then you know that taking a stand for Truth means to go against the crowd. The Christian Right and the American Christians in their corporate churches are the main ones upholding and supporting the child trafficking business in the United States today. How much longer before God's wrath is poured out on the United States of America, where most of the world's human trafficking occurs?
The Bible Teaches Believers to Manage Their Own Business and to Not be Slaves to the System – Just the Opposite of Christian Teaching
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to attend to your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12)
Two years ago I wrote and published an article about how the United States of America is in the same moral state today as the nations God judged and destroyed in 722 B.C. God called Jeremiah to testify to the truth about what was about to happen, that Jerusalem and many of the surrounding nations were about to be destroyed, and he warned Jeremiah that the opposition would fight back hard against him. But God promised to be with him during those difficult times and rescue him. He was told that the days were so evil, that he was not to take a wife and raise a family. When Jeremiah began to tell people the truth, he was opposed by his own family, and by the religious leaders of his time, including other prophets, who tried to silence him. Does this sound familiar to anyone reading this? Do you see any parallels between what Jeremiah suffered, and how people telling the truth today are suffering also, even from their own family members? The reason why so many people opposed Jeremiah was because they did not think it was possible that God would judge them, because they believed that they were the "chosen people" and that they were better than all the other nations around them. They continued to believe that God would favor them over their enemies. As the USA celebrates its "Independence Day" this week on July 4th, the parallels between the people of Jeremiah's day and the people living in the US today, particularly the "Christians" who are the dominant religious group in the culture today, are stunning. But the truth that Jeremiah proclaimed thousands of years ago to his culture is the same truth that applies to the United States today: "Peace, peace," they say, when there is no peace. (Jeremiah 6:14)
I can Do All Things Through the One who Strengthens Me – The Story of a Remarkable Father and His Handicapped Son
Rick Hoyt, who became a national symbol of hope and inspiration to millions, died a few weeks ago due to complications with his respiratory system, as he had cerebral palsy, which left him a quadriplegic when he was born. His father, Dick Hoyt, and co-teammate of Team Hoyt who competed in the Boston Marathon for years, as well as other competitions such as the Ironman Triathlon, died in 2021. If you have never heard the story of Dick Hoyt and his son Rick Hoyt before, then read on and be blessed. It is a tremendous story about not listening to all the negative things this world tries to tell us, especially in the medical field, and how faith can overcome many obstacles the world puts in your way.
Paul's letter written to the believers in the Roman city of Philippi in the First Century and recorded in the Bible, was written from prison where Paul was incarcerated at the time. Not only did Paul not consider his imprisonment negative, he stated that the truth about Jesus was spreading even more in the area because of his imprisonment, and that it gave courage to others to take a stand for the truth. Paul made it very clear that true faith in Jesus Christ, which puts us at odds with the world system run by Satan, would result in suffering, as suffering is our calling as true disciples of Jesus Christ. A true disciple of Jesus will always suffer from not participating in the sins of the Satanic world system. This truth, for the most part, is not taught in American Christianity today. If a member of a Christian church is arrested and incarcerated today, or if the state takes away their children and accuses them of neglecting or abusing their children, in almost every case the Church will side with the State, and just assume that the church member did something wrong that deserved punishment (e.g. to refuse vaccines for your children). That's why I have spent time publishing articles for the past couple of years explaining that it is OK to leave the corporate churches, and if you have children, it is probably necessary to do so, because most all of the American churches today are "Synagogues of Satan."
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible.
Are you going to be replaced by a machine? Could a robot really be curious? Or experience love? Could a computer plot evil? Some really smart people think machines will achieve not just human but super human consciousness. Oxford professor of mathematics John Lennox and Baylor University computer engineer Robert J. Marks disagree. Non-algorithmic properties are solely attributes of humans. Computers will never show the creativity, empathy, or love that human beings do.
Those of us who have been educated in Western Culture today have been taught to believe that the center of a person's consciousness and thoughts is our brain. Like a computer that contains a microprocessor that allows the computer to accomplish all of its various tasks, the idea that a human being also works like a computer with a brain that functions like a microprocessor, is something that almost all people raised in Western Culture assume is a fact. But it is not a fact. It is a belief system. And as a belief system, would it surprise you to learn that this is a fairly modern belief, and that historically it has not been the brain that has been considered the driving force in humans that allows them to think and reason, but that historically it has been the heart that is attributed to human consciousness, including our mind, speech, and thoughts? When we look at the ancient literature written in non-Western cultures, the idea that the brain controls human thought and consciousness is mostly absent. The largest collection of writings of antiquity that exist to us today is contained in the Bible, a collection of 66 unique writings spanning over thousands of years. Most of the Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek, and the most common translations of the Bible found today are English translations. I have an electronic Bible I use every day (e-Sword), and in this program I currently have about 16 different English translations of the Bible. I searched every English translation I have for the word "brain," and all of them turned up a negative result with ZERO instances of the English word "brain" used to translate any of the words in the original languages. If one does a search for the word "heart," however, it will return a result of almost 1000 matches where words in the original languages were translated into English as "heart."
Do not be deceived. God will not be made a fool. For a person will reap what he sows, because the person who sows to his own flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:7-9)
