I’m ready to start building a congregation for First Century Bible Church and I do not recognize the authority of secular government to dictate any aspect of our doctrine or practice. As a Christian attorney and pastor I know and follow the law above the law, and claim the right of church sovereignty implicit in the original meaning of the separation of church and state, which is by no means a one way street controlled by the state.
Government does not recognize the tax-exemption of the church out of a sense of benevolent indulgence but because it has no power to tax a separate and equal sovereign.
In this sense, the church has greater autonomy relative to the federal and state governments than the state governments have relative to the federal government. The “supremacy clause” of Article 6 of the US Constitution subjects the states to federal law where the two conflict on a matter within federal jurisdiction.
In contrast, the First Amendment defines church sovereignty thusly: “Congress [the only legitimate legislative body] shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That is an absolute prohibition on government interference with the church which pre-dates the Marbury v Madison power grab of the Supreme Court, under which subsequent judicial activism purported to regulate the church.
While other churches and congregations might have acquiesced to the court’s illegitimate authority, I am not bound by their decisions, having newly established my own church totally independent of them. I have not registered First Century Bible Church with the government and have no intention to do so.
As an Ambassador of the Church of Jesus Christ I do not recognize the authority of the Supreme Court — an arm of the state — to legislate from the bench on church/state matters. It retains authority to regulate the state in church/state matters, but not the church.
Clearly, the church has a Biblical duty to cooperate in church/state matters, and even more, to actively steward the secular society! But not as a inferior entity to the state. In the “coadjuvancy” of church and state envisioned by the founders, meaning the cooperation of separate sovereigns, the legal relationship of the two is the jurisprudential equivalent to an international treaty. More specifically, since it involves close interaction within the same geographic territory, the relationship is akin to that which exists between Native American tribes and the federal government, but the rights of the church are stronger than those of Indian tribes, because they come from God, not from established human customs about territorial possessions.
I have founded First Century Bible Church upon this premise, invoking the theological authority established by the Apostle Paul in his epistles and earthly ministry, and the political/legal authority recognized (not granted) by the First Amendment, which pre-existed the American colonies, as admitted by the Declaration of Independence. My claims are further bolstered by the first principle of the Magna Carta of 1215 (the foundation of modern human rights jurisprudence), to wit: “The English church shall be free.”
Today, following the prompting of the Holy Spirit, I am issuing an invitation to Bible-believing Christians everywhere to join First Century Bible Church by self-declaration of intention and agreement with what I consider the “essentials of the faith” as I currently understand and have articulated them here.
And I am today beginning the active work to establish both a local congregation for in-person fellowship, and a distant congregation around the world for Internet and or multi-media fellowship via the Internet and other means of connecting.
I’m better known today for my writings and teaching on anti-Marxist constitutionalism and on Biblical prophecy, but for thirty years my ministry was single-issue: opposing the LGBT political agenda around the world. One of the first things I observed from my front line culture war vantage-point was that the LGBT movement has a very parasitical nature – attaching itself like a leech to other constituencies of the progressive coalition to exploit whatever political advantage it can for itself, without regard for the damage this causes to the host body.
The first host was the Jews, as evidenced by the first symbol chosen by the “gays” to identify themselves: the inverted pink triangle. This was a blatant and outrageous attempt to exploit the public sympathy Jews hold by having suffered the Holocaust, symbolized by the yellow star.
The 5,000 to10,000 homosexuals estimated by “gay” historians to have been interned in the network of roughly 10,000 Nazi work camps (not the 6 death camps) — most for violating the same anti-sodomy laws in effect throughout the world in that era — wore pink triangles as part of the Nazi system for classifying inmates by criminal category. Based on that tenuous connection to Nazi-era Jews (who were almost universally opposed to sodomy as a gross violation of the Torah), the LGBTs attempted to fabricate a “Gay Holocaust” by which they could hijack Jewish political power for themselves under the banner of “The Pink Triangle.” That was the title of Richard Plant’s pioneering book on that theme (the first offering of an orchestrated political marketing campaign that swept American popular culture in the late 1980s and early 90s).
It was no mere coincidence that “The Pink Triangle” was published in the same year as the US Supreme Court ruling in Bowers v Hardwick (1986), which recognized the right of states to regulate harmful sexual conduct in the public interest, but specifically homosexual sodomy. Justice Byron White (a JFK appointee) literally mocked the “gay” argument that the (then admitted) lifestyle choice of sodomy should be constitutionally protected, writing for the majority: “to claim that a right to engage in such conduct is ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’ or ‘implicit in the concept of ordered liberty’ is, at best, facetious.”
The Bowers ruling (later overturned in Lawrence v Texas, 2003, by the chief engineer of “Gay Cultural Supremacy” in America, Justice Anthony Kennedy) marked the end of an LGBT political strategy launched in the 1940s. Now abandoning their admission that homosexuality was (and is) a lifestyle choice, they pivoted to the so-called “born that way” argument originally popularized by German homosexual occultist Karl Ulrichs in the mid-1800s, who claimed that male homosexuals were really female souls trapped in male bodies, thus “born that way” with supposedly no control over their sexual proclivities or conduct.
After Bowers, the entire American LGBT movement began marching in a new direction, insisting homosexuality is innate and unchangeable (and thus recovery from same-sex attraction disorder is impossible), and demanding recognition as a helpless victim class whose homosexuality was the equivalent of being Jewish: ergo the pink triangle.
But in 1995, Orthodox Jewish Holocaust researcher, Kevin E. Abrams and I, wrote The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, which successfully debunked the “Gay Holocaust” hoax and (due to an outcry from Orthodox Rabbis in response to the book), the “gays” were forced to abandon the pink triangle (with a few rare exceptions).
Having lost its first host, the LGBT political parasite attached itself to the Black Civil Rights movement, which it has possessed and exploited ever since. Dropping the pink triangle like a snake sheds its skin, it hijacked the rainbow as its new symbol, which it stole from Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition.
From that point forward it drove the American civil rights agenda for its own purposes, always bundling LGBT political goals within a “coalition” agenda, and using primarily Black front-persons to lead the efforts while using their own extraordinary power to manipulate the political process and the media from the shadows. This was best exemplified in the “Human Rights Commission” strategy in which the Dems established city and state HRCs to “promote diversity” and “oppose hate crimes” through implementation and strategic enforcement of “anti-discrimination” laws. These laws were always sold as a defensive “shield” for “minorities” but in practice used as a pro-active “sword” to set up and punish LGBT opponents (think “bake shops” and “printing companies”).
The LGBT movement insisted that all anti-discrimination policies must include “sexual orientation” (an invention of “Queer Theorists” to cloak the “born that way” lie in pseudo-scientific jargon). By this method, augmented by a great many “hate hoaxes,” laws characterizing opposition to homosexuality as “homophobia” (an LGBT-invented slur) spread from just a few cities to become nationwide public policy, entrenched in state and federal law, protected by multiple layers of (judicially activist) Supreme Court precedent.
The LGBT’s still control the Black host body as evidenced by the Black Lesbian couple running Black Lives Matter who aggressively push the LGBT agenda under the BLM banner. Again, it was not accidental that the first faction to steal the media spotlight once BLM took to the national stage was the “Black Trans Lives Matter” sub-cult.
The LGBT hijacking of Black power is all the more egregious a moral crime in that the Black community as a whole (though not the leaders, who have mostly been bought off) has and still does strongly oppose the LGBT agenda – a fact the Marxist media hides from the public.
Somehow the rest of the leftist coalition never recognizes the LGBT threat until it’s too late, the most recent example being the hijacking of the Feminist contingent by “transgendered women,” which has all but destroyed womens’ sports. And even when they discover they’re being exploited, they never seem to reconsider the presuppositions of liberalism that led them into the trap.
In the case of the Black community, however, there is a ready solution at hand, and that is the aggressive reclamation of the leadership of their movement by the Bible-believing Black pastors. I urge you to forward this essay to them.
The Clock of Judgment
This week I am releasing the 4th installment of my book “Dynasty of Darkness: Satan’s long serpentine trail through human history in the role of successive Antichrists, and the imminent rise of his last days kingdom” in text and video formats. In this installment I analyze the books of Joshua and Judges to profile the Antichrists of the 400 year period of the pre-monarchic Israelite republic, when the Hebrews fought the Canaanites for control of the Holy Land. That season of Biblical history has special prophetic significance for Americans because it parallels the 400 years of our republic from its founding in 1620.
Was pre-monarchic Israel a republic? Yes. The term “republic” is the Latin translation of a 6th century BC Greek term “res publica,” coined to distinguish governments “owned by the public” from those “owned by the rulers.” Historically it included any alternative to monarchy, as was true during the 1600s in Western Europe and Great Britain when the concept of a “constitutional republic” began to mature toward its present form. The Hebrew nation established through Abraham by God has, of course, always been a “theocracy” (a term coined by Josephus in the 1st Century AD), but the terms “republic” and “theocracy” are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, the transition of the nation of Israel, from “republic” to “monarchy” during the time of the Prophet Samuel did not change its essential “theocratic” nature since God ultimately ruled both as the same lawgiver above the same law that both types of government were equally subject to.
Is America a modern iteration of the Israelite republic? I believe it is. America’s first written constitution was the Mayflower Compact, a covenantal oath of Pilgrim Separatists who crossed the Atlantic Ocean with the specific intention to create a nation “for the advancement of the Christian faith” – just as the Hebrews crossed the Jordan River to establish a nation upon the Torah, and whose first act in the land under Moses’ successor Joshua was to corporately reaffirm God’s Abrahamic covenant as codified in the Mosaic law. Both republics acknowledged God as the Supreme Authority, and their leaders managed the day by day national affairs according to the rule of law He had established through human agents.
After the US Constitution had been drafted “in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty seven” (a quote from the signature clause), resistance at the state level raised doubt it would ever be adopted, until Rev. Samuel Langdon’s sermon “The Republic of the Israelites as an Example to the American States” inspired New Hampshire to cast the final ratifying vote.
Does America’s history parallel that of the Israelite republic? Yes. Like Israel, America started morally strong and grew weaker over time, being intermittently “revived” to spiritual health. God raised up Judges to rescue the Israelites from their sin after its painful consequences caused them to repent and beseech Him for deliverance. America’s pattern was similar and God raised up men like Jonathan Edwards (First Great Awakening, 1730s – 1770s), Charles Finney (Second Great Awakening 1790s – 1830s), and others.
It is human nature to forget God’s law during times of peace and plenty until sin-produced suffering reminds us to repent. It is Satan’s nature to exploit and institutionalize our sin to increasingly weaken us from cycle to cycle. I call this the “Clock of Judgment” because it cycles like the hands of a mechanical clock from Morally Healthy at Noon, to Backsliding by Three, to Judgement by Six, to Repentance by Nine, to Restoration through Revival at Twelve, over and over again.
Eventually, due to the institutionalization of sin, the “revivals” become so compromised they can’t overcome entrenched societal corruption (e.g church-based LGBT tolerance).
In the Israelite republic, the turning point was under the 6th Judge Gideon, whom we tend to lionize in modern sermons but whose father built the town altar to Baal, and who himself took a Caananite concubine whose son Abilelech became the first-ever Hebrew Antichrist. Gideon’s “revival” had virtually no residual power at the time of his death, and soon afterward Abilelech slaughtered all 70 of his male siblings (except Jotham who escaped) to make himself King of (Canaanite) Shechem. God then killed Abimelech by His own hand using a nameless woman (Judges 9:56), NOT by raising a deliverer. After that the republic disintegrated slowly into anarchy until “every man did what was right in his own eyes.” There were other Judges raised to preserve Israel as a nation in the Holy Land, but never again did the republic as a whole return to full spiritual health.
In America, the turning point was under “Antichrist” (or Antichrist-ally) Judge Hugo Black. As the “swing vote” on the Supreme Court he wrote two majority opinions (Everson v Board of Education, 1947; and Torcaso v Watkins, 1961), converting Jefferson’s “Separation of Church and State” metaphor into binding constitutional law. In these, this former KKK clansman who helped LBJ cheat his way into the US Senate, and whose own appointment to the court was illegal ), pushed America off the bedrock of the Bible onto the shifting sand of Secular Humanism with the Everson ruling. This fulfilled a key Antichrist objective in 2 Thessalonians 2, setting the court “above God and everything worshiped as god” as arbiter of all religious claims relating to public policy, under the deceptive rubric of “benevolent neutrality.” And in Torcaso he made Atheism a “religion” equal to Christianity, legally empowering militant God-haters including Madalyn Marie O’Hare to weaponize the 14th Amendment “equal protection” clause to purge Christianity from public life, starting with public school prayer in 1963.
November 18th will be the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’s landing at Plymouth, two weeks past the 2020 election. Is America doomed to soon surrender its republic to a wicked King Saul as Israel did? Or will we truly repent and be healed as a nation? The Clock of Judgment is ticking.
There are seasons in human affairs when mankind can see much more than just the tip of the iceberg of Satanic control in this world. Evil prefers to spread in darkness, but when God’s people stand firmly against the Satanic agenda despite increasing punishment, they compel the adversary to send ever greater numbers of his forces out of the shadows onto the battlefield. In those rare moments, the full extent to which the leaders and systems of this world are corrupted gets exposed to those with spiritual discernment.
It is a dark and chilling sight when the demonic realm attacks in waves of escalating fury and power – like a comic-book villain transforming into a massive and malevolent behemoth, part real and part illusion — seemingly beyond the power of the righteous to defeat.
That is exactly what is happening today in the Marxist revolution against Trump: a continually escalating spiritual war of aggression is being waged on the political and cultural battlefields of the physical world – all because Donald Trump and his Bible-believing Christian base firmly resist the Marxist global agenda.
There have been previous examples, including the elites’ campaign to destroy Robert Bork to prevent his confirmation to the Supreme Court, but the closest parallel to today’s anti-Trump coup occurred when the Christian para-church network Oregon Citizens Alliance took on the LGBT agenda at the height of the Reagan Revolution. OCA’s ultimate defeat (through establishment GOP treachery and that of GOP-allied churches) is the reason why Oregon’s defacto capital Portland is now the epicenter of Marxist revolution in America. I know, because I was on the front lines of that battle, which launched my thirty year career as a Christian social activist and missionary to the global pro-family movement.
Ironically, I was an unwitting Marxism-influenced teenager when I migrated from Massachusetts to Portland in 1977 because of its liberal drug laws. I spent almost ten years of my sixteen year bondage to drug and alcohol addiction in that city, hanging out with the radical leftists, including the very types of people rioting today, on the very same streets.
But in 1986 I was delivered and healed on my knees in prayer at a secular rehab clinic. Months later my former drug dealer, who had independently converted to Christ, took me to a Bible-believing church for the first time where a truly godly pastor opened my eyes and heart to Truth. I switched sides in the culture war and, after some inner spiritual preparation (but no practical training or worldly credentials), the Lord miraculously made me the OCA’s State Communications Director.
Through many local and statewide ballot measure campaigns, I was in the hottest fire-fights on the leading edge of culture war. The Nazi swastikas repeatedly painted on the Portland megachurch I attended (solely because I worshiped there) were just a minor irritant compared to the campaign of severe punishment all of us at OCA endured: hate mail, bomb threats, death threats too numerous to count, vandalism, public harassment, continuous malicious character assassination (by ALL of Oregon’s corporate media), four separate major lawsuits over a five-year period seeking over $11 million (against OCA and me personally), numerous serious false flag hate crimes blamed on us, including a series of 21 cross-burnings on the front lawn of a Black, supposedly wheelchair-bound lesbian who was finally caught by two rogue cops in defiance of the Portland Police Chief – a prominent OCA critic who later became Mayor.
When I say our OCA experience prefigured today’s anti-Trump campaign, I’m not exaggerating. I personally saw black-clad Oregon Antifa terrorists marching with “Kill the Police” signs more than twenty years ago. I experienced the betrayal of the Romneyesque Republican Party Chairman Craig Berkman doing an anti-OCA joint television commercial with his Democrat counterpart, and then the Republican-controlled legislature “preempting the field” on sexual orientation policy to instantly invalidate 26 hard-fought city and county ballot measures we passed with margins up to 80% – all while Portland-area GOP-allied “conservative” churches and a turf-conscious rival “Christian” PAC attacked OCA as “divisive.” I experienced the 11th hour betrayal of the Portland Catholic Archbishop William Leveda who succumbed to pressure and urged a No vote on our “No Special Rights Act” before transferring to San Francisco. (I believe it was “Christian” compromise to appease the evil-doers that ultimately defeated us.)
While OCA’s battlefield was the LGBT agenda, and it is no accident that the co-founders of Black Lives Matter are Marxist lesbians, today’s battle transcends that issue. However, what OCA accomplished in our season of firestorms was to expose the whole Satanic army to public scrutiny: from the rotten RINOs, to the corporate giants, to the non-profit foundations to the fake church leaders, to the media, to the universities. We were so persistent and unyielding in our stand for truth that the demonic realm had to completely emerge from the shadows to fight us. We exposed the whole Satanic iceberg in Oregon – just as Trump is now doing nationally.
Sadly, there wasn’t a constitutionalist hero in Oregon to melt that cancerous lump then, and thus the demonic hard left, greatly emboldened by victory despite being exposed, gained a “mandate to escalate,” explaining why Portland is now the national poster-child for Antifa anarchy. But America today has the earthy and bare-knuckle fighting but constitution-loving Donald Trump. He’s not a perfect man, but neither were any of the “Judges” raised by God in times of crisis to lead the Israelite Republic. If, despite everything being thrown at us, we can get Trump reelected, America’s story might possibly have a happy ending. We’ll at least have a fighting chance.
The secret to victory in battles with Satanic principalities and powers is simple but not easy: “Take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand” (Ephesians 6:10-18). Brethren, don’t let the Adversary dishearten or stampede you or Portland will be America’s future: STAND!!
The Seven Principles of Biblical Warfare For Purging the Cancer of Marxism from America: A Teaching on Deuteronomy 20.
As a culture war missionary and attorney, I believe the Bible contains the highest law on this earth and the divine principles underlying the Mosaic law remain constant and binding upon all mankind, even in cases where the “letter” of individual statutes may rightly be deemed situational to an ancient context or fulfilled by Christ. In my view, it is the spirit, not the letter, of the law that is perfect per Psalm 19:7 and 2 Corinthians 3:6, and as essential in the fabric of Creation as the fundamentals of physics.
That is an important caveat in an article offering Deuteronomy 20 as the model for defeating the attempted Marxist coup we’re suffering. These Marxists are skilled and experienced liars – professional false witnesses – who routinely misrepresent the words and deeds of American constitutionalists for political ends, and they hold a virtual monopoly on our public information systems. It has never been more important for patriots to be circumspect in our rhetoric, not primarily because of THEM, because Marxists will simply fabricate lies to attribute to us no matter what we say.
No, we must be especially scrupulous in what we say and do now because IF, by the reestablishment of the rule of the true law, we are able to purge the cancer of Marxism from our Judeo-Christian civilization, we will retroactively be held to those same higher standards for our speech and actions in the prosecution of that war. So, yes, I am saying Marxism is a cancer that must be removed because it is now clear that our prior policy of peaceful coexistence on equal terms is no longer possible. But I am also saying we must not employ corrupt Marxist strategies, tactics and reasoning in the removal process.
We must not be like the Socialist Weimar government of the 1920s and empower an army of National Socialist street thugs to fight the Soviet Communist street thugs in the blood-splattered cities of Bavaria. Neither can we create a South American-style dictatorial right-wing crack-down of skull-busting storm troopers repeatedly chasing left-wing guerillas back into the hills.
What we need is an organized nationwide army of God-Fearing Constitution-Loving Patriots who follow God’s law of warfare.
John Adams warned that “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion….Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” Today’s Marxist revolutionaries have proved Adams correct by shattering the bulwarks of the constitution from within – using liberty as a springboard to anarchy and tolerance as a pathway to tyranny. Their malignancy has overwhelmed the immune system of the body politic, leaving the extreme measure of emergency surgery as our final option.
In other words, what we need is an American Reset to constitutional originalism in which all the seats of power and influence in this nation are filled by constitutionalists. These constitutionalists will not kill those whom they supplant, as the Marxists will certainly kill some (perhaps many) patriots if their coup succeeds (mark my words). Constitutionalists will simply take the Marxists’ power away and update America’s sedition and treason laws to prevent their resurgence.
So HOW can this be done? By using the seven principles of war from Deuteronomy 20:
- Men skilled in warfare must lead the army, but the clergy among the leadership must provide spiritual encouragement and remind everyone that the enemy’s numbers and strength mean nothing because God will fight for them if they trust and serve Him (verses 1-4).
- Only brave warriors who can focus on the task at hand without worldly distractions can serve in this army. Everyone else should stay out of the way (verses 5-8).
- Only after the army is formed do the officers appoint campaign commanders suited to the particular battles (verse 9).
- Every stronghold must be given the chance to surrender, and if they do the people will not be punished beyond being completely stripped of power and required from that point forward to scrupulously submit to the rule of law under direct supervision (verses 10-11).
- Strongholds which refuse to surrender must be besieged and defeated, and their leaders punished appropriately. This is where the principle of the law supercedes the letter in the modern context, since this army must not – with the exception of actual and aggravated Treason as determined by a court of law – employ capital punishment. Further, all of the resources of that stronghold must be re-purposed to serve the rule of law. (verses 12-15).
- Rebellious strongholds which fall in the special category of institutions or industries intended to teach, promote and uphold objective truth for the benefit of all of society (e.g. academia, law, media) must receive greater attention by the conquering army regarding all combatants, not just the leaders, and their punishment must include restrictions that strip them of every means to advance their ideology and agenda from that point forward (verses 16-18).
- In the prosecution of this war, any tangible resources that can be restored to beneficial use must be preserved (and used in subsequent battles), but those which cannot bear fruit for the restored society should be destroyed (verses 19-20).
By God’s grace we have a Commander in Chief who seems to truly want the restoration of America, and who has clergy in his inner circle who could introduce him to these seven Biblical principles of war. I pray they will see this article and pass its insights along.
But in my view, the army which must be formed is not exclusively an arm of the Trump administration, but a coalition of forces like the Continental Militia of the Founders’ era. And prominent in those ranks should be the modern clergy of the Black Robed Regiment and patriotic men and women from every walk of life. If you agree, sign my Declaration of Restoration to add your voice to this rallying cry. And please pass this message on to others.
Deuteronomy 20: The Laws of Warfare
1“When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you. 2“When you are approaching the battle, the priest shall come near and speak to the people. 3“He shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel, you are approaching the battle against your enemies today. Do not be fainthearted. Do not be afraid, or panic, or tremble before them, 4for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’ 5“The officers also shall speak to the people, saying, ‘Who is the man that has built a new house and has not dedicated it? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would dedicate it. 6‘Who is the man that has planted a vineyard and has not begun to use its fruit? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would begin to use its fruit. 7‘And who is the man that is engaged to a woman and has not married her? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would marry her.’ 8“Then the officers shall speak further to the people and say, ‘Who is the man that is afraid and fainthearted? Let him depart and return to his house, so that he might not make his brothers’ hearts melt like his heart.’ 9“When the officers have finished speaking to the people, they shall appoint commanders of armies at the head of the people.
10“When you approach a city to fight against it, you shall offer it terms of peace. 11“If it agrees to make peace with you and opens to you, then all the people who are found in it shall become your forced labor and shall serve you. 12“However, if it does not make peace with you, but makes war against you, then you shall besiege it. 13“When the LORD your God gives it into your hand, you shall strike all the men in it with the edge of the sword. 14“Only the women and the children and the animals and all that is in the city, all its spoil, you shall take as booty for yourself; and you shall use the spoil of your enemies which the LORD your God has given you. 15“Thus you shall do to all the cities that are very far from you, which are not of the cities of these nations nearby. 16“Only in the cities of these peoples that the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, you shall not leave alive anything that breathes. 17“But you shall utterly destroy them, the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, as the LORD your God has commanded you, 18so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the LORD your God.
19“When you besiege a city a long time, to make war against it in order to capture it, you shall not destroy its trees by swinging an axe against them; for you may eat from them, and you shall not cut them down. For is the tree of the field a man, that it should be besieged by you? 20“Only the trees which you know are not fruit trees you shall destroy and cut down, that you may construct siegeworks against the city that is making war with you until it falls.
I will begin this article by confessing that I was once a strong defender of George W. Bush (43), starting with the national conservative uprising triggered by the “hanging chad” political scandal in the Bush v Gore election of 2000. I participated in a massive gathering of conservatives who descended spontaneously on the California State House in my then home-town of Sacramento like a swarm of angry hornets, as other did in countless cities across America. I’ve since come to recognize that the Bush Clan has always been Deep State, it’s continuing political dynasty representing the top strata of the Red Republican half of the Bush/Clinton/Obama/Romney Purple Uniparty.
I was not surprised, therefore, to see the Bush political war machine recently roll onto the 2020 election battlefield flying the flag of George Soros’ Anti-Trump “Purple Revolution.” In early June, Bush 43 announced his intention not to vote for Trump, and then, as reported by WND in early July, a new Pro-Biden super-pac, “43 Alumni for Biden,” was created by “hundreds of former George w Bush staffers….to ‘unite and mobilize a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation’… ‘not necessarily in full support of [Biden’s] political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.’ ” I predict this is just the beginning of a major “second front” in the elites’ war on Trump.
When we talk Deep State, we’re talking about a huge, multi-layered, multi-disciplinary, fully integrated network of Cultural Marxists who share the common religion of Secular Humanism, its’ moral code of “political correctness” (especially regarding sexual morality), and the dogmatic cultural narratives that serve as Scripture for them all. It’s roots go very deep indeed – all the way back to the late 1800s in America – but the most relevant period for this essay begins with the shady career of Deep Stater George HW Bush (41).
Bush 41 was apparently high-level CIA under JFK and LBJ before becoming a pro-abortion Texas GOP Congressman during LBJ administration. Though he denied having been a spook, a declassified FBI memo from J. Edgar Hoover named 41 as the sole CIA representative verbally briefed on November 23, 1963 about JFK’s assassination the day before. There’s always been considerable buzz in conspiracy circles about his (and LBJ’s) possible role in that “regime change.” And, of course, Bush 41 was later tapped in 1976 as CIA Director by Gerald Ford.
I have long argued that “Landslide Lyndon,” America history’s poster boy for election fraud, was the most corrupt president in US history (until Obama). From his infamous and unconstitutional 1954 “Johnson Amendment” banning churches from endorsing political candidates, to his “War on Poverty” agenda that created the federal entitlement system by which Democrats gained a seemingly unbreakable hold on nearly every big city in America, LBJ’s legacy was poisonous. Yet the LBJ Presidential Library features a special tribute to Bush 41, stating in part “The Bush and Johnson families share a long history and friendship, beginning in the 1950s when Lyndon Johnson served in the U.S. Senate with Prescott Bush, George H.W. Bush’s father. Although from different political parties, the two men enjoyed a productive working relationship steeped in mutual respect.”
The Bush 41/LBJ “productive working relationship” hinted at a “Purple Uniparty” long before we started color coding the GOP as red and the Dems as blue. The much-heralded Bush 43/Bill Clinton “collegiality” was further evidence. Today, of course, we live in a world where Donald Trump’s paradigm shattering election in 2016 has exposed the Purple Uniparty so fully that Bush 43 has now unashamedly joined the Dems and opened a second front in the war on Trump.
Former MA Governor now Utah Senator Mitt Romney has represented the Bush Dynasty on the battlefield since 2016. He pops up whenever his cheap shots against Trump can get the maximum media coverage, the most recent regarding the Roger Stone commutation. Romney’s protégé, second term MA Governor Charlie Baker (whom I ran against in 2014 and 2018) has also sniped repeatedly at Trump and will likely soon escalate his anti-Tump rhetoric. (To show how cozy they all are, Baker’s purple party predecessor and close Obama buddy, Deval Patrick, transitioned from the MA Governor’s office to a seat on the board at Romney-brand “Bain Capital.”)
Many “Establishment Republicans,” meaning Cultural Marxists who still pretend (to varying degrees) to be Conservatives, have been forced to align with Trump to retain power, but now that Bush 43 has emerged from the shadows under the purple banner, some of them will show their true color as well.
Looking back I am now convinced that Bush 41 intentionally lost to Bill Clinton in ‘92 to fast-track the Marxist agenda, on the understanding that the Bush Clan would get back the baton in 2000. I believe Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney were all Bush Team members tasked with taking a dive in their respective races, and that was the role Jeb Bush was intended to play for Hillary, before Trump upset their apple cart.
Looking forward I think the Bush Team will incrementally bring ALL of its assets to bear against Donald Trump and many people will be shocked at how deep the Deep State goes in the ranks of the GOP – especially among “conservatives.” (Jeff Sessions is not an anomaly.)
I am especially concerned about Texas Governor Greg Abbot, since I believe the Covid 19 “second wave” is central to the Anti-Trump strategy, and the media seems to be setting up Texas to be the New York of the second wave. I’m hoping Abbot is a true constitutionalist, but I know his political ascendency was kick-started by appointment to the Texas Supreme Court in 1995 by then Governor George W. Bush. Time will tell if he is a Bush asset, but even if he isn’t there are many who are, and we’re about to see them step out of the shadows with guns aimed at Trump.
All that having been said, I still think Trump will win in a landslide, and by then, for the first time since the start of the Marxist invasion, we’ll know who most of the Deep Staters are when the second Trump term – the Great American Swamp Draining – begins in earnest. At least that’s my hope and prayer.

Unlocking the Mysteries of Revelation (also published here at WND.com)
I have been publishing my most recent prophecy book as a series of videos and PDFs. It is titled “The Prodigal Son Prophecy: God’s Amazing Plan for the Restoration of the Two Hebrew Houses and the Salvation of the Gentiles.” Section One of the book is titled “A Fresh Look at End-Time Prophecy: A Christian Lawyer and Pastor Examines the End-Time Prophecies of the Bible “De Novo” from the Hebrew Cultural Perspective of the Apostles.” Today I am releasing the third installment of this series, starting with the section titled “The Seven Stages of the Last Days.”
In the prior installment (Chapter One, Part One), I explained my approach to prophecy, which begins with the hypothesis that Jesus’ instruction to the Apostles in Matthew 24-25 about the end times (a teaching called The Olivet Discourse) is both chronological and the primary key to harmonizing all the prophecies of the Bible.
A second key is the recognition that God’s system for time-keeping in the prophecies is explained in Leviticus 23 (the Seven Feasts of the Lord) and Leviticus 25 (the Centrality of Cycles of Seven). I then created a set of tools for testing the hypothesis, including a chart in which the Olivet Discourse is divided into a series of fifteen events, twelve events from the “beginning of sorrows” through the resurrection/rapture in Matthew 24, and three post-rapture events represented in the three parables of Matthew 25, along with a second chart showing how the Matthew 25 events fulfill the pattern of the three Fall Feasts of Leviticus 23.
Another major hypothesis in The Prodigal Son Prophecy is that the Book of Revelation should be viewed as an expanded and augmented version of the Olivet Discourse in which Jesus (through John) provided much more information to the church about the end-times at the very end of the Age of the Apostles.
The Book of Revelation can be said to be in one sense the “graveyard” of prophecy gurus since it’s apparent complexity from a Hellenic perspective has produced innumerable false theories and interpretations. Its heavy emphasis on symbolism and lack of a clear and self-evident chronological sequence lends itself to imaginative, sometimes fanciful speculation. However, from the first century Hebrew cultural perspective, the challenge of understanding Revelation is not nearly as daunting or problematic.
In this third installment I show how Revelation perfectly aligns with the Olivet Discourse chronology in the gospels and created a chart for depicting the alignment visually. To accomplish this very challenging task, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I created a new tool for analyzing the chronology of the events in Revelation.
First, I demonstrated how all the events in Revelation can be divided into one of four categories based upon the perspective of time and space in each passage: 1) Events on earth from the perspective of earth, 2) events on earth from the perspective of heaven, 3) events in heaven from the perspective of earth, and 4) events in heaven from the perspective of heaven. Then, I divided the entire book into twenty-five passages based upon the perspective of each passage, and made a chart in which each of the passages is color coded based on its perspective. I then designed a third chart showing how each of the twenty-five passages can be plotted on the Matthew 24-25 timeline.
Importantly in my analysis, I emphasize that events in heaven, especially those from the perspective of heaven, cannot necessarily be plotted on the timeline based solely on their position in the narrative, because these events occur outside of time, where nothing in Creation has begun, yet is fully accomplished and completed. It’s a paradox for we time-bound mortals that must be accounted for in our interpretation of Revelation. To resolve this paradox, I wrote a section in this chapter on using the Biblical symbolism in the problematic passages to anchor them in the timeline – by showing how these symbols are used in other Bible prophecies that also align with the Olivet Discourse.
In this third installment, I also offer a different view on the seven seals, trumpets and bowls, arguing that they are perhaps best plotted on the timeline using another Biblical concept, the “wheel within a wheel” (which I envision as a spiraling cycle like a watch spring). Using this approach I show how we can view the seven trumpets as events which occur within the cycle of the seven seals, and, in turn, that the seven bowl judgments occur within the sixth trumpet. The seventh trumpet declaration of the Millennial Kingdom is in my analysis the final event of the series, it being one of the events in heaven from the perspective of heaven, that do not fit the apparent chronology of the text.
I conclude Chapter One with a discussion of the Season of the End, meaning the final generation preceding the second coming of Christ and how the symbolism of the fig tree can be used to determine which of three events in the 20th Century most likely mark the start of that generation.
As with all my prophecy writings, I hold my conclusions lightly and do not claim to have all of the answers. I believe the most important trait we all should cultivate in ourselves when we study prophecy is humility, since we cannot know with absolute certainty that any of our conclusions are 100% accurate because the events we’re considering haven’t happened yet and the passages we’re studying are usually susceptible to plausible alternate interpretations. That having been said, I think my analysis is sound, and where I am less confident in my conclusions I usually make that clear. I am publishing this book without charge, as an act of service to God in the fulfilment of my ministry for Him, and will provide any interested readers a free copy in PDF by email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marxism = Treason: A Cancel Culture of Our Own
To quote from one of the earliest manifestos in the American Marxist revolution of the 1960s “This essay is outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.” In other words, it is an up-front disclaimer intended to ensure that the readers recognize the subsequent content as satire.
If “cancelling” things for being socially unacceptable has become the new dogma of the political left, the rest of us should recognize this not as a threat, but an opportunity. Since their leftist “tide of history” has turned our government agencies, courts, schools, media, sports leagues, chambers of commerce and city parks into rat-infested swamps and now threatens to drown the constitution itself, aren’t we now justified in launching a “cancel culture” of our own? Isn’t it about time for a Constitutionalist Cultural Revolution to purge Marxism from America?
What would that look like, if the true American Patriots rose up with the battle cry “Marxism is Treason!” and began using the same rules of engagement that the left has been operating by in 2020. Let’s look at each nest of Marxist usurpers and agitators separately – treating each as an individual cancerous tumor in a host body loaded with them.
We’d want to hit the media first, since they represent the “Air Force” of the far left, and have created a “no truth zone” over America in which any patriotic person, group, and message gets shot down immediately. We’d need a fairly sizable strike force of patriots to make a swift raid on their bases in Manhattan, Atlanta and LA. We clear the buildings, smash the broadcasting hardware, upload military-grade malware into their computer systems, and then burn the structures to the ground. We’d take over a Central Park in each location and turn it into Citizens Judicial Zone where we’d administer judgement on each executive, editor and “journalist” responsible for their campaigns of manipulative propaganda. Each individual would first tried by a jury of citizens based upon the evidence of their work, then we’d horse-whip the guilty, place them in stocks, and eventually release them on the condition they never again work in any field in which public opinion is influenced.
Next we’d want to purge the colleges, universities, pubic schools, teachers unions, and government educational bureaucracies of all the Marxists, which would pretty much leave the entire top strata of each category unmanned. So we’d appoint new leaders from the ranks of patriotic citizens who respect the constitution and the Judeo-Christian principles of America’s founders. All of academia would henceforth be restored as the “Marketplace of Ideas” and, while leftist ideas would be allowed, any attempt to force politically-correct views upon students by any person in authority would be criminalized.
We’d need to deal harshly with government officials who have abused their power to advance Marxist interests at the expense of the constitution. These White liberals would need to be removed from office on the presumption that they only rose to power based on White Privilege. We would hold immediate special and fair elections for new leaders, following the model used by the US Military in Iraq – pots of purple ink for each voter to stick their thumb in so no one can vote twice. Of course, everyone would need to prove their identity before voting, as this would be the new norm we would insist upon forever after.
The judges would not escape justice, either. We’d create a Blue Ribbon Commission on Judicial Integrity to review their past rulings against the standard of constitutional originalism. Judicial activists at every level would be removed from the bench and disbarred.
The Deep State would also be purged. We’d ask General Mike Flynn to head up that effort.
The spineless wimps in the NFL, Chamber of Commerce, and other organizations who have bent over to the Black Lives Matter/Antifa fascists would not be allowed to go back to work but would be forced to spend their work weeks sitting in oversized high-chairs like toddlers, sucking their thumbs and wearing dunce caps.
Our season of change would be of limited duration and have a clean ending point. We would justify it under the logic of the Declaration of Independence, issuing our own Declaration of Restoration (not satire) based upon it. And after the season of restoration, we would simply return to our restored Constitutional Republic.
However, during this season of purging the cancer of Marxism using the Left’s own rules, we would declare open season on the symbols, structures and systems of socialism: allowing the oppressed citizenry, on their own initiative as vigilantes, to strike back against political correctness wherever it may be found – tearing down the abortion clinics, the rainbow flags, the the “safe space for snowfakes” signs, etcetera, etcetera.
But, of course, this is all pure satire, because constitutionalists by definition believe in the rule of law. There is no justification for taking the law into our own hands so long as the constitution stands, and the systems of citizen-delegated government continue to operate, even if they are not functioning well at the moment.
The BLM/Antifa mobs now raging in our streets, tearing down every symbol of American heritage, are doing America a tremendous service: they are revealing the true, hideously ugly face of Marxism for the entire electorate to see, and all the media spiking and spinning can’t hide it from the people. And they’re doing it during the build-up to a national election in which a proven champion of American excellence (who, at Mount Rushmore on the 4th of July, has just delivered the most powerful patriotic speech of our generation), is squared off against a drooling leftist imbecile who can’t remember what planet he’s on.
No, we constitutionalists don’t need to stage screaming tantrums and burn down our own neighborhoods to get our way, we need only to remember the basics of limited, delegated government that the Founders bequeathed to us, and thanks to liberal idiocy, our side is finally WOKE to reality: Marxism is Treason, and it can and must be purged – but within the parameters of the Rule of Law.
Scott Lively on Why the Dems are Burning Their Cities
I have repeatedly argued that the reason the globalists played their Black Lives Matter riot-and-mayhem card on the day before the release of the fully exculpatory Michael Flynn transcript was to deflect public attention from Obamagate which the Flynn transcript finally proved was conspiracy-FACT and not theory. That explains the timing of the start of riots, but there’s another, more diabolical reason that the Democrats are goading BLM specifically into burning down their own cities, and augmenting the (mostly peaceful) Black forces with highly trained (and mostly White) Antifa storm troopers to ensure it happens.
The White liberal elites who have owned all these cities since LBJ created the entitlement system and political machinery that made perpetual liberal control possible have finally run out of “other peoples money” and the gravy train is about to drive off the cliff, leaving them holding the bag. These grossly racist White liberal elites are therefore setting up inner-city Blacks as the scapegoats for the collapse of the cities, while cynically creating a false narrative in which they themselves play heroes for supporting “a long-awaited social accounting for systemic racism” (which is all the more ironic, since nearly all the racism being complained of as first-hand accounts by these inner-city Blacks must logically have occurred in the deepest of the deep blue cities where they live).
Why have these While liberal elites run out of other people’s money? Because the Trump Tax Reform of 2018 limited the deductibility of state and local taxes on federal tax returns. That literally killed the “soak the rich” component of the LBJ strategy by triggering an exodus of the rich and super rich from the Dem’s ultra-high-tax showpiece cities like Manhattan, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Minneapolis, etcetera.
PLUS, the incredible Trump economy created by that Tax Reform dried up the While liberal elites’ other primary income source – federal entitlement money – by liberating their main cash cows – inner-city Blacks – from government dependency. Every job in the miraculous post-Tax Reform explosion of Black inner-city employment (the highest in American history) represented another Black family pulling out of the entitlement system, cutting off another spigot of revenue from the feds to state and city slush funds which had always kept most of that money to fund their army of Democrat loyalist public employee union members – the secret to their perpetual control of the cities.
So, because Trump forced healthy anti-Marxist economic policies upon them these While liberal elites are faced with impending political doom, and their worst nightmare – public accountability – as the river of other peoples money runs dry. With no conceivable solution to this crisis in their Socialism-addled brains, images of guillotines began swimming in their soon to be detached heads.
Who are these White liberal elites most afraid of? First and foremost, they fear the public employee unions, especially the Police Unions, whose political loyalty they have bought election after election since the 1960s with the ever-dangling carrot of increasingly Fatter (but unfunded) Pensions! In the “new normal” these pensions hold about as much value as the confederate currency issued by an earlier generation of Democrat leaders.
Who do they fear almost as much? Inner-city Blacks, whom they have kept politically enslaved by breaking up their families and addicting them to drip-by-drip government subsistence programs. It is these same White liberal elites who have intentionally fostered and nurtured racial and class resentment to ensure that all blame for the LBJ policies was placed at the feet of “the rich,” as leverage to extort increasingly more money from the rich and the businesses they own. (Never forget, that poverty in the inner cities could have been eliminated generations ago by simply promoting and assisting entrepreneurialism in the Black community!)
Now you know not only why the cities are burning, but why the two sides of the “war” for the cities are the Police and the Rioters, while the White liberal elites are pretending to be independent arbiters and referees high above the fray when they are in fact the masterminds of the entire mess. They are implicitly and in some cases expressly encouraging Blacks to dismantle the city infrastructures, pretending that is the reason for defunding the police, when the real reason is they just don’t have the money and can’t get any more unless they force the feds to bail them out – and even that would be a bandaid on a gushing artery. By perpetuating this cynical and racist scam they can put all the blame on the Blacks, whom they secretly loathe.
At the same time, these White liberal elites are using all their propaganda skills and machinery, and are expertly leveraging the race-based rioting, to smear the police forces as a single monolithic group – not individuals – as “systemic irredeemable racists” to justify the elimination of their pensions. Mark my words, the as-yet unannounced plan is to rescind police pension fund obligations and divert the (imaginary) funds for the purpose of reparations for Black slavery.
As is always the case, the White liberal elites project their own evil motives upon the conservatives. But in this situation they have outdone themselves by deliberately attempting to promote racist sentiments in the American public by portraying a tiny fraction of Black thugs and looters as the spokesmen for the entire Black community – and setting them up to take the blame for the now inevitable collapse of the Blue cities – while simultaneously throwing Blue Lives –one of their key municipal constituencies – under the bus because they are no longer useful to them.
I urge every conservative and constitutionalist to raise awareness of this scam as an act against racism, and to help the Black community and the Police unions to recognize they are being pitted against each other purposefully by the White liberal elites they once trusted.
Scott Lively on the Coming Antifa Armageddon
This could be the video that gets me banned from YouTube, but I put my trust in God and reaffirm my personal commitment to the love of TRUTH above all else. Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life, and I will not give my loyalty to any person, position or philosophy that contradicts Him or His Word.
“Antifa Armageddon” could mean one of two things. Either, that Antifa (and the Marxists) face an imminent political Armageddon against them, or that Antifa will have victory over constitutionalism, and bring a wave of destruction like we’ve never seen. I believe both of these paths would lead to or at least be the herald of the Biblical Armageddon of the end times, over different political terrain, unless Christianity were restored as America’s primary cultural influence.
If the former Antifa Armageddon is “fated,” then we can assume the left’s day of reckoning is drawing near and it won’t be pretty. In any hard-fought war, the hammer of revenge always falls hardest on the losing side’s front-line units – and that’s a lesson that would soon be learned by the Antifa storm-troopers of the hard left.
As a Christian, I don’t believe in revenge because “vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord.” But I do believe in Justice and the Rule of Law, which appropriately punish criminal conduct and dismantle systems and structures built for criminal purposes, including the crimes of sedition, treason, and conspiracy to subvert the constitution.
However, the secular populists and conservatives do not operate by the same rules, and like human societies nearly always do, I believe they will “over-correct” past the line of just punishment and pursue a full and harsh accounting until every indignity imposed upon them by decades of political correctness and trampling of conservative values has been avenged.
It would be like Jehu slaughtering the descendants of Ahab and Jezebel as an act of personal will which invalidated his license from God to execute them as an act of justice. That literally brought an “Armageddon” upon the Kingdom of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel (Hosea 1:4-5) that literally prefigures the end-times version.
Politically/culturally we would then trade secular liberalism for secular conservatism in America and the pendulum would swing all the way to the “right,” where the devil operates just as aggressively among corrupt men as he does on the “left.” We would truly trade Communism for Fascism then, just as in 1930s Germany, where both sides were literally dominated by homosexuals (as Kevin Abrams and I thoroughly documented in The Pink Swastika): it was the Femme-Homosexual affiliated Communists against the Butch-Homosexual affiliated Nazis and the devil really didn’t care which side won. Stalin or Hitler, take your choice.
Now, if “Antifa Armageddon” has the latter meaning, then they will, in essence, take down Trump like toppling the Statue of Liberty into New York harbor (which could literally occur!).
Justice has long slumbered in America under the assault of Marxism upon our Constitutional Republic and upon the Judeo-Christian civilization for which America serves as a capstone.
Indeed, America is like a physical monument resting upon the pedestal of Bible-based civilization, and toppling THIS monument IS the ultimate purpose of Antifa and the globalists. If America falls to the Marxists, the world falls with it, and that is why Donald Trump, the symbol of American antiglobalism is the one man who stands in their way.
Trump is, in the political sense, and perhaps the religious sense as well, the “restrainer” of 2 Thessalonians 2, whose removal would be the final barrier to the Antichrist’s last days reign of terror.
This eventuality in November of 2020 would mark the end of our 400 years as a Judeo-Christian Republic (begun in November 1620 with the Pilgrim’s landing at Plymouth, Massachusetts), in direct parallel to the 400 year life-span of the Israelite Republic (which began with Joshua’s entrance into the Holy Land, and ended with the Hebrews demand to become a monarchy instead). (400 – 40×10 – is the ultimate Biblical number related to God’s testing of human character). In this “Antifa Armageddon” scenario, Trump ends his reign as a vanquished hero and is replace by an Antichrist.
In the former scenario, Trump would win but then preside over a post-Republic Empire – the King Saul of the story; an Antichrist figure – IF it were to be learned in retrospect that his pro-Christian speech and actions had all been just cynical opportunism to win evangelical political support, as some allege.
TO BE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR I personally still believe Donald Trump is God’s man in the White House and if that is true, there is a third path possible in which America is restored by a return to Christ. That is my hope and prayer.
Thus, the single most disturbing factor in the Donald Trump presidency is his public endorsement of homosexuality, because it casts serious doubt on the sincerity of his self-proclaimed Christianity. If his LGBT support is sincere and he’s attempting to reconcile it with his presumedly sincere Christian faith, it simply reflects bad theology, and that can be forgiven to a point, since we’re all works in progress as far as sanctification and Christian maturity goes.
If instead his LGBT support is insincere and he’s just pandering to the large part of the homosexual community that considers itself politically conservative, that is also understandable to a point. But it’s not excusable, because it reflects the non-Christian view that God will honor political strategy that openly defies His moral code.
Either way, it is a gross error of judgment that implicitly affirms both a core tenet of Marxist ideology and a central social policy of the Antichrist kingdom.
The fate or America, therefore, appears to hang not on the effectiveness of the Antifa/globalists strategy and tactics, nor the form that the coming Antifa Armegeddon will take, but on the truth or falsity of Donald Trump’s Christianity, as challenged by the spiritual litmus test of one’s attitude about the societal normalization of homosexuality.
To understand just how serious an issue this is Biblically, I refer you to my book The Petros Prophecy. And I urge you to pray with me that President Trump be spiritually awakened on this issue before the Antifa Armageddon (of either form) becomes his legacy and our national demise.
A NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED POST FROM OCTOBER 2017 IS RELEVANT TODAY AS A REMINDER THAT THE CURRENT ASSAULT ON OUR AMERICAN HERITAGE BY THE MARXISTS DID NOT START IN 2020.
THIS IS ALSO A HEADS-UP TO PREPARE FOR A MUCH BIGGER ASSAULT ON COLUMBUS IN THE USA THREE MONTHS FROM NOW.
Where Columbus Day is Still Huge
America’s Marxist revolutionaries, led by the guerilla group “Antifa,” co-opted Columbus Day (October 9th, 2017) for a day of rage and vandalism against the legacy of Christopher Columbus, or as he is known in the Spanish world, Cristobal Colon. Antifa has actually done us a service by bringing attention to a monumental historical event that (under pressure from the left, ironically) has been increasingly downplayed in America, where it has been relegated to the status of a boring bank holiday alongside “Presidents’ Day.”
Unexpectedly, my current research project in Spain on the “Golden Age” of Christian/Jewish/Moslem “harmony” (relatively speaking) on the Iberian Peninsula has been dominated by the phenomenon of Columbus Day and I can tell you that the Spanish go “ALL IN” for Mr. Colon on this massive national holiday, which was celebrated here in Spain on October 12th.
World Net Daily published my article “Antifa Turns its Guns on Hispanics” on October 8th http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/antifa-turns-its-guns-on-hispanics/ in which I discussed the interesting timing of Antifa’s day of rage against Columbus monuments in the US and the announcement by the (leftist) Catalonian separatists that they would declare independence from Spain on the same day (though that declaration has yet too occur – thanks to the major pushback by the conservative Spanish government and an exodus of multinational corporations from Barcelona, the capital of the Catalon province). As I pointed out in my article, the Catalonians are casting themselves as anti-Fascists much the same as the hard left is doing in the US, and this all seems to be part of a global strategy by the left. http://abcnews.go.com/International/strikes-catalonia-leaders-push-independence-spain/story?id=50260034
My wife and I flew into Barcelona from Tel Aviv just hours after the vote for independence and got caught up in some street demonstrations as we drove north across Catalon to Andorra then next day. We have been touring Spain ever since, arriving on the 7th in Valladolid – where Christopher Columbus died in 1506 — just as both the secession news and the Antifa news back home was peaking, so I wrote my WND article and included a few pictures, including one of the massive monument to Columbus in Valladolid.
Two days ago, on October 12th, we arrived in Granada without having known either that this was the Spanish Columbus Day or that this was the city in which Columbus received his commission from King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella to make the journey that would result in his discovery of the Americas. (An impressive monument commemorating that meeting stands just a hundred yards from our hotel.) Consequently for us, the city is simply mobbed with people, and tickets to the Alhambra (Moorish) fortress above the city were completely sold out (though so much of the site is open to the public that we really don’t feel like we missed anything).
My point in writing this short update is just that Americans shouldn’t allow political correctness to rob us of our heritage. Columbus Day should be an even bigger deal in America than it is here in Spain.
I also want to thank God for arranging this completely unique experience for Anne and me. Arriving in Barcelona, Valladolid and Granada just when we did and in that precise sequence, with no prior planning or awareness, what a remarkable thing!
Oh, one last item. At the end of our day at Alhambra, as we were walking back to our hotel, talking religion, history and politics as we always do, we stopped in a park at the base of the mountain fortress to rest. Spray painted across the stone bench there was the bare message “Anti-Fascists.” It was just that singular, incongruous exclamation with no apparent logic or purpose for being in that spot, except perhaps as a wink and a nod of confirmation from the Lord that I was on the right track in my assessment of who’s really driving the secessionist movement.

THE FIRST ANTICHRISTS
(an article based upon Chapter Three of Dynasty of Darkness)
With prophecy unfolding before us like never before, there is great interest in the topic of the Antichrist. This has prompted me to finally publish my book “Dynasty of Darkness: Satan’s long serpentine trail through human history in the role of successive antichrists, and the imminent rise of his last days kingdom.” As the subtitle suggests, I believe the figure we call the Antichrist is whatever human host the demon Satan happens to be inhabiting at any given time, and that there have been a very long succession of them from the beginning of time. This week I published the third chapter of Dynasty of Darkness, titled “Unmasking the Antichrists of Earliest Antiquity” in video and PDF form. I will gladly send a free copy by email upon request to email@example.com.
To better understand and recognize the final Antichrist, it is helpful to review his resume, as it were – especially since he is almost certainly active in the world today but still hidden per 2 Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.” So let’s look to the Bible for the clues.
“[Satan] was a murderer from the beginning” (John 8:44).
My hypothesis is that Satan can only operate in the physical world by spiritual possession of a living person or animal. If so, the only way Satan is capable of murder is by the hand of a human host. The first murder in the Bible was of Abel by his brother Cain, who introduced that grievous sin to human society. The first Antichrist, therefore, appears to be Cain. For His own reasons, the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one finding him would slay him in vengeance, warning “whoever kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him seven-fold” (Genesis 4:8-15). This “Mark of Cain” is reminiscent of the last days “Mark of the Beast” in that both marks (while having different purposes) are inseparably associated with a man of evil by which the whole world can recognize him.
Several generations later, Cain’s direct descendant Lamech, the first person specifically identified as a polygamist in the Bible, fits the Antichrist profile even more closely.
“Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Listen to my voice, you wives of Lamech…For I have killed a man for wounding me, And a boy for striking me. If Cain is avenged seven-fold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold” (Genesis 4:23-24).
Not only is polygamist Lamech the second identified murderer of the Bible, and the first identified megalomaniac, his boast reflects a satanic principle of vengeance that directly contradicts the Messiah’s commandment in Matthew 18:21-22. In that passage Peter asked the Lord whether it was his duty to forgive his brother seven times. Jesus replied we must forgive “seventy times seven” times.
It appears that Lamech was the Antichrist of his time. Based on the average multi-century lifespan of the pre-flood world, Lamech’s term as Antichrist may have extended through his entire lifespan, perhaps until the flood itself.
In any case, insufficient details are provided to specifically identify other Antichrist figures before the great flood. However, from what we read in Genesis 6 we know that through his agents both human and angelic (and perhaps hybrids of the two — Genesis 6:4), Satan managed to corrupt the pre-flood world so completely that God was forced to cleanse the earth of all human beings except righteous Noah and his family (Genesis 6-9).
The first Antichrist figure in the post-flood world was Nimrod, who became “a mighty one on the earth.” Nimrod was the grandson of Ham and great-grandson of Noah.
Ham appears to have served as a carrier of the wicked pre-flood culture into the new world, corrupting at least two of his sons (Canaan and Sidon). In Genesis 9:22-25, Ham’s son Canaan was banished from Noah’s presence for what the ancient Hebrew sages concluded was most likely an act of homosexual molestation of his grandfather Noah (Rabbi Elie Munk, “Call of the Torah” p. 220).
As I addressed in Chapter Two of Dynasty of Darkness, sexual perversion is one of the six Antichrist attributes commonly seen in likely Antichrist figures through history, meaning that Canaan (almost certainly), and possibly Ham as well could have been Antichrists.
Ham’s grandson through Cush was Nimrod, described in Genesis 10:8-11: “He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, ‘Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.’ The beginning of his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land he went forth into Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah” (Genesis 10:8-11).
Nimrod’s campaign to build the Tower of Babel was an implementation of the Satanic goal described in Isaiah 14:13: “For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.’ ” Under Nimrod’s rule, the people said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4).
Nimrod was a totalitarian megalomaniac (another of the six Antichrist attributes) who exploited all of the people and resources under his control to build a monument to himself. This is the model of Antichrist government we will see repeated throughout the following centuries. Time after time, from the Pharaohs of Egypt to the Emperors of Rome, to the Fuhrer of the Third Reich, we will see armies of slaves building gigantic structures intended to reflect the god-like power and importance of the supreme ruler. Nimrod was the first in the post-flood world.
Importantly, centuries later, the two nations founded by Nimrod (Babylon and Assyria), were, respectively, the conquerors and enslavers of the two Houses/Kingdoms of the Hebrew people. The House of Israel was conquered by the Assyrians in 722BC and the House of Judah was conquered by the Babylonians in 586BC.
This brief summary of the earliest Antichrists offers numerous clues as to the last days Antichrist who is soon to be revealed. For more on this theme, please feel free to email me.
