We are seeing bizarre news coverage of shooters, heavily armed that are gunning down both civilians and police with increasing frequency. The recent Dallas shooter was a lone gunman, who was apparently discharged from the army due to sexual harassment charges that involved the of stealing a female officers’ panties. He had a written manifesto on killing police and white people in a “shoot and run” strategy.
What we are seeing all around us in an outgrowth of the ideological changes that happened within the counter culture and other radical groups seeking to radically usher in a Marxist or radical Islamic state. The news media is covered with accounts of policemen killing African American men for “traffic stops” and police being shot and ambushed. After each incident there is a call for more gun control despite the comments from experts like former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani that gun control would do nothing to stop these events. People will use knives or any other weapon they can find. At the same time we have groups like Black Lives Matter is being financed by billionaires like George Soros and 10,000 members of Black Lives Matter are being bused into Cleveland to the RNC Convention.
Although, our Constitution gives people the right to publicly and peacefully protest, what is planned for Cleveland is a recipe for orchestrated chaos or manufactured crisis, which were radical techniques, developed in the 1970’s. Historically, chaos or crisis drives radical social transformation. The motto of the New World Order is “order out of chaos.”
Is it possible that chaos is being allowed to allow a New World Order to be birthed?
In Europe the heads of major European nations are allowing radical Islamic males from Syria, all of military age into different European nations where a disturbing percentage have raped European women and caused violence. No rational leader would allow this, and it is certainly not a matter of ignorance. They knew what the results would be before they opened the borders.
The City of Cleveland has granted 20 permits to anti-Trump groups who want to demonstrate in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention. Protesters from opposing sides will be forced to compete for rally space, but so far no permits have been issued to pro-Trump groups. Groups like Code Pink, a radical leftist pro-Palestinian group, and Rose Hamid, who is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, have permits to demonstrate.
The Soros-backed Black Lives Matter and MoveOn.org have booked a number of rooms in numerous hotels for the four nights of the convention. A Soros-backed group called “Democracy Spring” vows to cause catastrophic civil unrest along with the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) calling on students, all over the country to join in the demonstrations.
Police Unions are warning that Cleveland is not adequately prepared for a “Summer of Chaos.” What happened in Dallas is a warning of much bigger things that could come to Cleveland.
The Cleveland police tightened their security plan for the Republican National Convention after the deadly shootings of police officers in Dallas, increasing surveillance and intelligence operations just a week before the convention. But, some demonstrators are hoping for violence to increase international attention in getting their message out. There are fears that the Republican National Convention could turn out like the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, where 10,000 demonstrators came to protest the Viet Nam War. The Chicago Convention erupted into violence and violent clashes between the police and protestors.
Despite the fact that the Cleveland Police Chief, Calvin Williams, is seeking to triple his 1,600-member-police force by recruiting from other states, the mere fact that he has waited until the last minute communicates a lack of understanding of what potentially could happen in Cleveland. Given the explosive tensions already boiling over in our nation and the professional agitators coming in to stir things up, at first glance, Cleveland does not look anywhere ready for what could be a “Summer of Chaos.”
The solution to the violence is not gun control. What has happened in America is that ideas, beliefs, philosophies and religions, which promote violence and killing as a legitimate means of social transformation, have become an essential part of the belief system of certain radical movements and extremist religious movements. Billionaires and very wealthy individuals and nations finance these movements. These groups have managed to infiltrate the very highest levels of our society. They are totalitarian in nature, in that they seek to violently take over our society by any means necessary. The philosophical, religious and ideological justification for violence is the root problem America is facing. The problem is not gun control or racism.
The reality is that we are in a very real battle for the future of America as a free nation. This battle is both physical and spiritual. We have come a long way from the days of great men like Martin Luther King, Jr. who advocated peaceful civil disobedience. All across America people’s minds are being infected with violent and hateful ideological viruses that compel them to use violence and death to establish either a political or religious/political dictatorship. The solution lies in counteracting the forces of death and violence with a compelling belief system, which transcends mere conservatism, Progressivism or Capitalism.
Belief systems like the American version of traditional Christianity and patriotism do not possess sufficient intellectual and spiritual power to overcome the forces of darkness, death, and destruction. The religion of Christianity, as it is now expressed in America, is a degraded clone of the original faith of the disciples and patriotism is perceived as an antiquated system for affluent white people. It is not that Christianity and patriotism do not contain powerful truths for freeing human beings, but as they are expressed and communicated now, they are not effectively reaching the people who need to hear it.
The violent fascism of the extremist religious factions and industrial age Marxism dressed up in Social Media with contemporary expressions like “Democracy Spring” exist only because there is no single cohesive social force to oppose them. This social force must be both spiritual and political in order for it to offer a viable alternative to the politics of death and despair. This social force must embody “new wine being poured into new wine skins” so that it is connected to the creative spiritual power of a First Century Revival that conquered ancient Rome and a brand new form of politics that rediscovers the incredible freedoms built into our Constitution and Bill of Rights, but must be communicated to new generations in entirely bold, radical and visionary terms.
We must remember that we’ve seen this type of “orchestrated chaos” before, specifically in the late 1960s during the radicalization of students and young people across college campuses. Protests, sit-ins, and armed takeovers of campus offices by the radical left were increasing and blamed, in part, on the Vietnam War. Other reasons existed as well, including many of the same anti-Capitalist, anti-American sentiments we are seeing today.
Many of these street-level protesters and the foot soldiers of these radical Leftist groups have infiltrated government and academic institutions since the 1970s. We are now paying the price, in terms of bodies and real human blood, for allowing this infiltration to occur under the guise of social tolerance and enlightenment.
We are seeing exactly what happens when we allow a man with known ties to members of the Marxist/Leninist/Maoist Left to take charge of a nation. We are seeing the fruits of his known associations, past and present, to be brushed aside as some sort of “fringe” conspiracy talk, even by some of our own. Those who have questioned his meteoric rise to power from a community organizer to the Oval Office without verifications of his genuine, authenticated bona fides, only to be told to stand down by fellow conservatives, should feel vindicated, if it helps.
To build the new system, though, they must burn down the old.
Over the vast expanse of man’s time spent shuffling around on this little blue rock, two constants have ever been his companion; misery and tragedy. Of course, this was not how it was intended to be, but man, given the choice, chose to go his own way.
You and I are no different. We’ve spent most of our lives doing what we wanted to do, paying little attention to what our Creator’s designs were for our lives, and instead, chose to subjugate ourselves to one thing or another. But as we see time coming to a close, and whether that close means our own mortality, or that the age itself is coming to an end, is still up in the air as to which will occur first. But we feel it. We sense it. The world has gone morally insane, and we are living in this surreal state of bizarro-world where evil is good and good, evil. Change is coming, and coming soon. Are you ready?
If the world were the Titanic, the time for avoiding the proverbial iceberg as it were, has passed. We are now on a collision course and even if we wanted to turn the ship, there is simply no more time, nor space, in which to do so. But the passengers on the deck are carrying on as if nothing could sink the unsinkable ship, and their thoughts and cares are focused on the party at hand. They aren’t going to know anything is wrong until the abrupt stop happens, and the ship begins to list to one side. This isn’t too far off from where we are in the world today. There is a collision course that we are heading towards, of which we are unable to steer clear any further. We are going to hit, and it’s not a matter of if, but when. Are you ready?
And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Luke 17:26-30
The above passage states, that life will be normal when Christ returns for His Church. Granted, that normal will be the ‘new normal’, but juxtaposed to this, is life inside the seven year Tribulation, which will be anything BUT normal. We also know (as did those in Jesus’s day) what Genesis had to say about life then. They probably had a much better understanding of it than we do today, given the historical knowledge that has since been lost after 2,000 years of Jewish diaspora.
- The world was exceedingly wicked and violent
- Every thought of man’s heart was only evil
- We know that Nephilim walked the earth
We know that in Lot’s day, Sodom and Gomorrah were; (Genesis 19, Ezekiel 16:49, 2 Peter 2:6, Jude 1:7)
- Rampant sexual perversion and promiscuity
- Morally, economically, and governmentally corrupt
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is…Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” Mark 13:32-36
There are many more areas in which I could have addressed such as apostasy in the Church, the rise of false religions and belief systems, massive increase in occult and supernatural activity, the massive increase in drug abuse, etc. But seeing how crazy the world has become in just the past two decades and how much innocent blood is currently on our collective hands, should we anticipate that man has finally exhausted the patience of God? I believe we have. Thankfully God is longsuffering, (2 Peter 3:9) and His timing is divinely precise (Gal. 4:4)…and given the fact that He has already waited 2,000 years to return, I believe we are rapidly reaching the end of the season of the church age which would seem to fit the patterns of the other ages which belong to the annals of history.
We have no idea when Christ will return. It could be today, tomorrow, ten years from now. Furthermore, with all the prophetic sign posts blowing past us at increasingly rapid speed, and the storm clouds are swirling overhead, we know the storm of the Tribulation is almost upon us. Individually speaking, we aren’t guaranteed our next breath. Around 155,000 people die and enter into eternity every single day. All we do know for sure is, with each passing day, we are one day closer to His return. Are you ready?
