The Players....Used and Manipulated

I believe the term Dupe is appropriate here; defined by Webster Dictionary as "one that is easily deceived or cheated".

Occupy Protests Spread Worldwide: Demonstrations Planned in 82 countries

If you want to see a sample of those who are easily manipulated and being used - just take a look at the array of videos contained within this link. The level of ignorance is astonishing:

Occupy Highlights

The sad aspect of these demonstrations is indeed the exposure of the degree of their vast ignorance and their lack of basic facts. More importantly, they have no idea that they are simply being used and manipulated: simple puppets for the hidden puppet masters controlling their every move and even their very thoughts.

They obviously have no idea what the underlying agenda is, but they are very useful to those engaged in this manipulation and ultimately working for those who lurk just behind the scenes.


America's Orwellian Liberalism

The parallels go beyond hurling epithets at that massive Leon Trotsky lookalike in one of 1984's most memorable scenes. Consider the three slogans of the Party applied to today's Orwellian liberalism: "War is Peace," "Freedom is Slavery," and "Ignorance is Strength."

As applied to today, Orwellian liberalism's increasingly vicious attacks against the Tea Party and Republicans perform the same function, which is to preserve the current liberal power structure by blaming others for its colossal failures.

"Freedom is Slavery" offers a host of villains in civil society to whom the American public is "enslaved" under the guise of being free, though the slogan offers a variant of what Orwell had in mind.

Thus, freedom to choose one's own health care plan or no health care plan at all is slavery

Americans "addicted" to oil driving gas-guzzlers are slaves to Exxon and its partners;

In fact, Orwellian liberalism assumes that citizens' own decisions to live their lives pretty much as they please constitute slavery to someone or another in a so-called "free country," which is why Big Brother in the form of the nanny state is becoming so enormous, so oppressive.

This leaves us with what likely is the most important slogan of Orwellian Liberalism: "Ignorance is Strength," which means in this context that ignorant citizens constitute the foundation of the liberal establishment.

Indeed, there is no way America's Oceania Big Brother equivalent, President Obama, could get away with ludicrous statements about "millionaires and billionaires not paying their fair share" of the income tax without the silent collusion of Americans' stupendous ignorance about such matters.

Similarly, the country's energy shortages could not conceivably exist with an informed citizenry that is aware of how well-connected environmental activists have prevented production in resources where North America dominates, such as coal, natural gas, and shale. Further, the massive propaganda campaign centering on anthropogenic global warming could not possibly succeed with an attentive public.

In short, "Ignorance is Strength" for Orwellian liberals; pierce it, and the whole century-old liberal-progressive project collapses in a heap of prevarications and pretense.

If this happens, liberals' presumption to govern on the basis of the other two slogans, as well as a thick vocabulary of Orwellian doublespeak, will collapse as well. The question is whether this situation can endure indefinitely, as it did in 1984. The answer depends on Americans' determination to reclaim control of their government. Absent that, we had all better learn to love Big Brother.

More Anti-Semitism at Occupy Los Angeles

While there have been intense arguments in the media recently about hints of anti-Semitism which have erupted at New York’s Occupy Wall Street protest, very little attention has been paid to similar problems cropping up at other “Occupy” events around the country.

Below you will find some photographs and a video taken at the Occupy Los Angeles encampment which reveal how there is a growing encroachment of anti-Semitic “Jewish bankers” conspiracy theories becoming more and more evident at these events.

Obviously not everyone at the “Occupy” protests is an anti-Semite, but the fact that these statements and views fit so neatly into the whole anti-banker milieu, and often go completely unchallenged by fellow protesters, should give everyone cause for concern about where this whole movement is heading.

This anti-Jewish sentiment is an alarming development in these protests, but unfortunately, shouldn't be too surprising.

How about some good news?

The Rapture and the Jewish Wedding Model

Jewish Wedding Traditions and the Rapture

In the midst of this turmoil that is engulfing the world, we have to remember that we are called to be looking up.

Looking up for what?

The Bridegroom who is on the way.

After all, we have a wedding to attend. This mess, otherwise known as Planet Earth is beyond repair. Only Jesus will restore this planet to the state that it was intended to be.

But before He comes to do that, He will come and take His bride away.

We also have instructions as we wait in the midst of this crumbling world:

" wait for his Son from Heaven, whom he raised from the dead - Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath."
(1 Thessalonians 1:10)

"Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on earth."
(Revelation 3:10)

"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
(Luke 21:28)

And Jesus Himself gave us the wedding picture in specific detail right here:

"Do not let your hearts be troubled.

Trust in God, trust also in me.

In my Father's house there are many rooms;
if it were not so I would have told you

I am going there to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come back and take you to be with me
that you also may be where I am."

(John 14:1-3)

The Bridegroom has given us a promise.

He will come back, and that coming appears to be very very soon.

Thank you for the inspiration this morning Scott. I needed it! Especially this morning...Thank You Brother.

So very true.

Good morning everyone! "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"

Even in all the gloom and doom that surrounds us in this world as believrs we are able to live and abundant life and we have our blessed assurance, Titus 2:13, "while we wait for our blessed hope, the glorius appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ."

I am listening to K-love as I type and hear the words of the song, "I can oly Imagine" God is so amazing. what a nice persaonal message to me from Him.

It surely won't be much longer until Jesus comes for His bride...

For the those who are on the fence, John 14:6 says..."Jesus said unto them, I am the way the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me."

He is coming soon, please consider the overwhelming evidence that Scott presents won't be disappointed.

Don't delay your committment to Jesus. It will be the best decision you have ever made.

Hallelujah! More often now, I find myself eagerly waiting to hear my name called to come up and finally see my Lord. I'm longing for the day when we will be rescued from this world of death and evil. Come soon, Jesus.

Anonymous, Hi and welcome. Ya know, there's some pretty smart folk here...Doctors, scientist, business people.

We could try and make an intellectual argument....and plenty do exist if you quit swallowing the the theory and PC flavor of the day. Many a PhD set out to prove the Bible false, but are now Believers.

But the biggest argument is one you can neither measure or prove/disprove. But you, yourself, have probably met a few folk in life that called themselves Christians but were just "different". There was a strength, a peace, a calm that defied explanation.

I thought myself a Christian for many years. I also thought the Biblical description of being born again and the Holy Sprite entering you was true but something that just happened because the Bible said it did. It wouldn't be something you could feel physically, something emotionally....well, spiritually. The Holy Sprite would not be noticed.

Wrong! He landed on and in me like a ton of bricks. My thoughts, perceptions, and many beliefs changed overnight.

So, my friend, its your choice. Make it last an eternity.

Praying the Lord touch your heart....but you need to pray too. Ask God to show you if you really want to know the truth.

Hello anonymous, any moron can see the fact is that this world is coming to a closing state of self destruction not some "morph" into say some "startrek" super enlightened planet earth. The fiction in all of this is that you will find peace on this earth; friend you won't. I know peace is what you want because Jesus said in specifically in John 14:27 that he has given us the gift of peace of and mind and heart 2. if only we will believe in Him John 3:16(that word believe means to "rely on Christ on Christ for salvation" simple hey?)and 3. Take his yoke upon us in other words let him be your life coach. I assume your American so you'd know all about the term "coach". Oh and have an attitude that you'll live for Jesus and not yourself. Simple huh? But that's it. Have serious think friend about what is happening. Grab your Bible and have a read what harm can it do?

Anonymous, my mistake you'll find the verse for Jesus as your coach in Matthew11:28-30. Have a great day my friend.

Dave down under said...

So after all my hard work Scott you deleted anonymous. Bummer. Oh well next time. How we supposed to reach the lost if we keep on sterilizing our media evangelizing tools?

Scott said...

The comments in response have just as much meaning.
I'm just not going to allow hit and run attacks on here.

Seth said...

Hit and Run Attack!! Jesus is coming for His Bride soon!! WOO!!!

Joe Agnello said...

We certainly need to keep reminding ourselves of the hope we have. Thanks for that reminder Scott.

The verse that has been on my mind more than any other these days is, "See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matthew 24:6b)

Amazing days we're seeing.

Nice to see you again:)
Hope all is well.

Yes, and thanks for that reminder. I have had that scripture on my mind for several weeks myself.
