Scott Lively on Mandatory Face Masks

Covid 19 is a serious disease, and the fact the left has politicized it, and that perhaps the globalists created it for nefarious purposes, should not cloud our judgment in responding to it as a health risk. Even if, as seems likely, Covid 19 turns out to be the disease equivalent of a bad flu, a bad flu season hurts and kills a lot of people, and encouraging policies like better attention to disinfecting public areas and increasing voluntary face mask usage in bad flu seasons would probably be a good idea going forward. So there’s a concession to the pro-mask people.

HOWEVER, these things must be balanced against the disastrous consequences of surrendering personal liberty to over-reaching government, especially regarding mandatory face mask policies, which are in some ways worse than police-enforced lockdowns, because they represent a literal “in-your-face” exercise of statist power like Islamist head coverings for women, or the Nazis “yellow star” for Jews. Unnecessary public mask wearing – as opposed to reasonable usage – is no less a statement of psychological submission to a higher authority than a dog collar.

My position is that face masks are helpful in group settings where the same set of people will be in close proximity for extended periods of time, including public transportation and enclosed workplaces, and in places where one might spend more than a few seconds face to face with highly vulnerable people, such as a hospital or nursing home. They are next to useless in an outdoor setting except as a protection for other nearby people by symptomatic people who are coughing and sneezing. They are unnecessary in settings like supermarkets where nonsymptomatic people, even those who may be unwittingly infected, are simply passing by each other, and in places with advanced air filtration systems, such as some churches that have been in the news. It’s all about viral load, and universal mask mandates ignore that fact and remove discretion from the citizens as to when and where they conclude it is important to wear them.

By imposing nanny-state mandates on people, governments are pushing liberty-loving Americans into a much stronger contrarian position than they would otherwise take, especially those who correctly perceive that public policy related to Covid 19 is heavily driven by 1) anti-Trump politics and 2) Big-Pharma’s predatory scheme to impose mandatory vaccines on the world. The problem here, as in so many left vs right battles, is lack of objectivity and an unwillingness to concede any facts that support the other side’s perspective, even in the slightest degree, especially by leftists, but also by many on the right. And it doesn’t help that at every step in the process various lies and manipulations of the “experts” and “leaders” are being exposed as politically driven when contrasted with hindsight-proven fact-based reality, such as the national and global death rate projections.

And in the greater scheme of things, I believe Liberty is more important than Security if one is forced to choose between the two. Those who don’t believe that are ripe for the Mark of the Beast, which is what this entire season of chaos is really about, in my view. I would rather die or be maimed from Covid 19 — or be beheaded by a mob of Anarchists and Islamists — than become a “safe” slave in a global totalitarian government.

Thankfully, that isn’t the choice today, because we still have the freedom to civilly disobey government overreach, such as mandatory universal mask orders and bans on church and other public gatherings — so long as we exercise those rights in open rebellion for the cause of liberty — while voluntarily following reasonable precautions on our own initiative.

When it comes to mask wearing policies in private settings, like restaurants and department stores, we should acknowledge that business owners have rights, too. If they want to mandate mask, so be it. We can each decide for ourselves whether that’s a deal-breaker regarding our patronage or not.

When it comes to self-evidently symptomatic people deliberately refusing to use a mask when they know they’re risking other people’s life or health, that’s an entirely different matter, and such conduct should be publicly discouraged, and perhaps punished if it results in harm to others.

But by the same token, those who are not symptomatic and choose not to wear face masks in higher risk settings, like indoor church services without effective air-filtration systems, should have the right to take that risk. Let me rephrase that – not “should have” but “do have” that right, because this is still America, whose legal system still rests upon the recognition that rights are from God, not government.

So I suggest that we all think very carefully about our personal choices in the matter of face masks and similar things and don’t get trapped into the false choice of total surrender or total rebellion, but make sure to separate truth from error, wisdom from folly so we don’t lose our balance on this political tightrope America is being forced to walk during this season of widespread irrationality.

Lastly, since hidden conspiracies to do evil are a very real part of the Marxist strategy, I always look for them in the form of leftist media manipulations and in the form of disinformation and social engineering campaigns supposedly from the “right.” In this case, I wonder how much of the less reasonable anti-mask rhetoric we’re letting influence us might be globalist trickery to get more of us infected.

Keeping our balance based on facts and reason is the only real antidote to that.

Scott Lively Gets Angry With Trump Critics

Dr. Lively chastises conservatives who condition their support for Trump on whether he agrees to violate the 10th Amendment and send in federal troops to end looting and arson in Democrat-controlled states and cities in defiance of state governors who are deliberately encouraging the chaos. Lively contends this is exactly what the left wants, and that the antics of BLM and Antifa anarchists are a form of violent street theater designed to provoke military response to advance the Marxist narrative that these thugs are “resisting fascism.” To put all of this in perspective, and showcase why conservatives should be more loyal to Trump, Dr. Lively has penned an essay on what American would now be like under a Hillary Administration.

Scott Lively Imagines the Hillary Administration

The American public is a fickle beast with a short memory. One minute we’re gushing with sycophantic praise for “first responders” and the next we’re debating whether they’re all just racist brutes unworthy of public employment. One minute we’re overcome with relief that Donald Trump’s election saved us from an unsurvivable plunge into Marxist hell and the next we’re condemning him as a sellout because he won’t trash the constitution and deploy the military on American streets against the wishes of Democrat governors (who are doing everything in their power to provoke him into over-ruling them so they can transform what is presently only media-exaggerated Dem on Dem street theater into an outright “Socialist vs Fascist” civil war). Thank God Donald Trump is a lot smarter than Tucker Carlson and the Hillary-supporting Murdoch children now running Fox News.

Just to put things back into perspective for the conservatives, I’d like to take a few minutes to ponder where we’d be today if Hillary had beaten Trump in 2016.

First of all, on the positive side, we wouldn’t have the utter chaos that is presently on display. There would have been no Russian Collusion Hoax, Impeachment Scam, Covid 19 Plandemic, or BLM/Antifa rioting, because these were all designed to overthrow Trump. Our intelligence agencies would not be tarnished with shame for staging an attempted coup. Our media would not have abandoned its pretense of objectivity and become blatant partisans. Our Democrat governors and mayors would not have been granted dictatorial powers over the citizens. Religious liberty would not have been officially deemed a “non-essential” service.

None of those things would have been orchestrated by the deep state because their champion Hillary would be at the helm. With no serious opposition to globalism, there would be relative peace and order and all that corruption would stay hidden. We’d be full speed ahead with the left’s agenda, spurred by non-stop media praise for her progress in “social justice” and the astonishing unity of vision among corporate America, academia, NGOs, labor unions, and foreign heads of state. There would possibly be some street protests by the “deplorables” – an occasional pro-life demonstration, perhaps a few pickets of Drag Queen Story Hour — but they’d be largely impotent and ignored by the media. Then again, the First Amendment might no longer protect “hate speech” and vigorous criminal prosecutions and non-profit dis-establishment for such “anti-social activities” could be a Hillary priority. The Hillary IRS would gladly help with that.

By now, both houses of Congress would be controlled by a super-majority of Democrats, the fruit of a fully-implemented “open borders” strategy and the perfection of “ballot harvesting” and other “voter franchise protections” by the DNC. The Bush Dynasty would control the GOP and offer token resistance while selling out for a share of the plunder and some plum gatekeeper positions for key agents such as Mitt Romney (on the condition they keep the conservatives suppressed – much like the Dems agreement with RINO Governor Charlie Baker in Massachusetts).

The courts would no longer protect us. There would be 150+ new Hillary federal judges. None of the federal circuits would have been flipped conservative. At SCOTUS, in the place of occasional “conservative” weasels like Gorsuch and Kavanaugh (blame the Heritage Foundation for them) we’d have jurists in the mold of Gloria Allred and Maxine Waters. Ruth Bader Ginsberg would resign to allow Hillary to replace her with Obama, for whom the groveling John Roberts would relinquish his role as Chief Justice. Never again would SCOTUS issue a conservative ruling as it finished jack-hammering the Bill of Rights into rubble, starting with the 2nd Amendment.

The biggest difference we’d see is a globe dominated by Communist China (and prominent Chinese representation in Hillary’s inner circle). The US would have continued to transition to Obama’s “lower expectation” economy and our manufacturing base would have shrunk further. There would be no economic boom, no employment miracle for Blacks and Hispanics, no shredding of bureaucratic red tape and over-regulation, but instead a vast expansion of government, including the total nationalization of our health industry, modeled on Obamacare.

Our military, while fully homosexualized, would not be rebuilt, and our capabilities would be greatly diminished. Taiwan, Hong Kong and the South China sea would likely be fully under Chinese control. South Korea would possibly be under Northern control. Iran would have nuclear weapons and control of Yemen, Syria and perhaps Lebanon. Netanyahu would have been ousted by a pro-Clinton leftist and Israel would be in some form of civil war over surrendering land to the Muslims with no friends outside its own borders. Brexit would never have been implemented in the UK and the European Union would have consolidated its power as the model for global government, crushing all nationalist opposition.

The United Nations would have a much expanded role in the United States and its “2030 Agenda” would be the “Roadmap for World Peace” pushed in our public schools, media, government agencies, and liberal churches (led by the RCC under Pope Francis).

Speaking of public schools, they would by now be openly and overtly teaching Marxism. There would be Planned Parenthood “health clinics” in the bigger high schools and middle schools, and new government agencies tasked with educating parents on LGBT “realities” and removing children from “unsafe” homes where Queer Theory is not fully embraced. Home-schooling would be banned.

Bill Clinton would be Ambassador to Epstein Island (where pal Jeff would still be alive), but the worldwide crackdown on pedophilia and sex trafficking would never have begun.

This is just a quick, incomplete glimpse into the parallel-world Donald Trump saved us from. If he did nothing else but play golf every day and left it to us citizens to take back this country for ourselves, we’d all still owe him a massive debt of gratitude. But instead he’s fighting tooth and nail for every inch of ground he can take, against the most intense political blitzkrieg ever seen in America. Next time you fair-weather friends of our president feel the urge to gripe about his supposed flaws, take a moment to consider how you personally would be affected today if we’d gotten Hillary instead.

Gorsuch, Transgenderism and Antifa

Dr. Lively argues that the Gorsuch betrayal of the conservative movement on transgenderism is not just one man’s failings as a constitutional analyst but a message from the global elites that they own Gorsuch’s vote and thus resistance to their transformation of American into a Marxist state is futile. He suggests the purpose is to demoralize Religious conservatives and increase the likelihood of civil war by making a mockery of the rule of law, making vigilantism seem more justifiable which would serve the Marxist goal of goading conservatives into street-fighting where the media would brand them as fascists, vindicating the Antifa narrative driving the current unrest.

The Gorsuch Betrayal and Civil War

As a thirty year veteran on the front lines of the LGBT culture war, I have a slightly different take on the Bostock v Clayton County, Georgia ruling than the majority of conservative analysts decrying it as a “surprising” decision. I was not surprised, and I don’t think the ruling itself is a deviation from the trajectory of the court. The Gorsuch betrayal of constitutionalism was a gut punch, and I’ll address that shortly, but the most important fact not getting much attention is that this was a 6-3 vote, meaning that Gorsuch’s vote did NOT decide the case. The snake-in-the-grass John Roberts was the very predictable deciding vote, which actually makes the Gorsuch betrayal a much more significant geopolitical event, since it was completely unnecessary to achieve the policy objective.

The court’s normalization of transgender insanity was a foregone conclusion because 1) the global elites have long “owned” the swing voter on the Supreme Court (Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy and now Roberts) and 2) the “sexual revolution,” of which the LGBT agenda is the point of the spear, is the elites’ primary weapon to dismantle the natural-family-based societal foundation which has always been the Achilles Heel of Marxist totalitarian systems. (History shows that if you leave the family fabric of society intact, the people will always eventually overthrow you, so eliminating the natural family is the real key to ultimate Marxist victory.)

Those shocked by the reframing of an obvious behavioral disorder into a fundamental constitutional right deserving of legal protections SUPERIOR to those actually enumerated in the First Amendment just haven’t been paying attention. We lost this battle a long time ago, and SCOTUS is simply aligning itself with the culture that is already imposing LGBT dogma upon us.

Those who view the Gorsuch betrayal as the action of an independent thinker who just happens to be wrong on the issue, are equally deluded. No, this ruling is a message from the top of the Marxist food chain that they “own” Gorsuch too, that the American republic is at an end, and that the new world order is close on the horizon. It is supposed to persuade us that “resistance is futile,” that the restoration of constitutional originalism is impossible, and that even Donald Trump cannot prevent our transformation to a fully Marxist regime because they can use even his appointments to “trump” him.

I have argued that the goal of the anti-Trump Marxist agitators at every level, including the media, academia, judiciary and the streets has been to provoke civil war, and I think the Gorsuch betrayal makes that now almost a certainty. SCOTUS is in reality the most powerful political body in the world – the ultimate human bastion of law and order whose decisions impact everyone on planet earth. Congress technically has power to curtail the court but we all know that’s not very likely. So what happens when the people realize, in a single season of chaos, that the judiciary will no longer dispense justice? – that the executive branch of the state governments have turned against their own police forces? – that the legislatures of the cities and states are siding with anarchists against their own citizens? What happens is Vigilantism, potentially morphing into widespread Civil War.

This is precisely how Obama, the Clintons, the Bushs and Soros have conducted their “color revolutions” around the world – making their greatest political gains when civil war erupts. Their anti-Trump regime change campaign is the largely unreported Purple Revolution launched by Obama in the last weeks of his administration. The Gorsuch betrayal is, in my view, the coup-de-gras knife-in-the-back of the conservative movement designed to push the Trump base into responding in kind to the anarchists, whose outrageous antics are specifically designed to achieve maximum agitation of the American patriots. They are, literally, “agents provateur” whose purpose is to create a political powder-keg, and the Gorsuch betrayal is intended to be the spark that sets it off.

The more secular populist/nationalist half of the Trump base has been ready to rumble for a while now, but the less reactive Religious conservatives have not. That will change to a significant degree now, I believe.

There remains one shred of hope left for the restoration of our Republic, which is the reelection of Donald Trump. The question in my mind is whether vigilantism and/or civil war would help or hurt that cause. I’m inclined to think it would hurt more than help – but I also think it is virtually inevitable at this point. The left is certainly ready for war and has troops already establishing battle-lines, and if Trump wins reelection they’ll go even more insane than they already are.

On the flip side, if Trump loses, America as we have known it (prior to the Purple Revolution) is over, and an uprising by constitutionalists to prevent totalitarianism would be justified, in my view.

What America’s leftist elites want more than anything else is validation of their narrative that they are fighting a war against fascism. They want a recreation of the bloody street battles of Germany in the 1920s when Bolshevik-inspired Communists tried to do in Bavaria what they had just done in Russia and were countered by National Socialists. Hitler became a hero to the world in the 20s and 30s for his successful suppression of the Communists (who migrated in large numbers to the United States) before growing awareness of his vicious hatred and persecution of the Jews and of the ugly Marxist nature of National Socialism (which was in practice just as tyrannical as Communism) – eventually made him a symbol of great evil.

The greatest victors of the German showdown were the America-transplanted Communists – the fully fascist “Anti-Fascists” – whose propaganda has ever since framed every battle within our borders as fight against “fascism,” even though the true anti-fascists are patriotic constitutionalists.

I’m not saying Americans should remain passive in the face of Communist aggression. I am saying that if push really does come to shove, it shouldn’t be tit-for-tat street skirmishes that fit the Marxist narrative, but a massive shock and awe uprising that stops the coup in one fell swoop, and ends with jails filled to capacity with looters, rioters, and criminal conspirators, guarded by the same heroic police forces they’ve tried to destroy. I suggest we keep our powder dry, pour our energy into reelecting Trump, and only pull the trigger on civil war if no other option remains to save America.

Obama and the Race Baiters

Dr. Lively again contends that the race riots are a diversion from Obamagate, and compares the Democrat diversionary tactics to those of con-man Harold Hill in the 1962 musical comedy, The Music Man to show how the conservatives have been duped (yet again) by the Marxists.

Obama and the Race Baiters
(The Art of Distraction as Illustrated by Harold Hill and “Lida Rose”)

In the 1962 musical-comedy, The Music Man, grifter Harold Hill cons an entire Iowa town by whipping up a false crisis (the moral decline of its young men) and championing a false solution (a boy’s marching band). He then bilks the town of money for instruments and uniforms while only pretending to follow through with his plan. The Mayor, however, suspects Hill of fraud and tasks the four members of the town council to investigate him. But whenever they manage to catch Hill in person to question him, Hill just begins humming the opening bars of “Lida Rose” and the four men immediately transform like Pavlov’s dog into a barbershop quartet, blissfully crooning “Lida Rose” in four part harmony while Hill slips away unnoticed.

Today in America, a dark and dystopian version of this theme is unfolding before our eyes. The Iowa town is all of America, Harold Hill is Obama and the Democrats, the false crisis is the anomalous death of George Floyd, the false solution is ‘defunding the police’ (an uber-provocative diversion they know is unwinnable), the Mayor is President Trump, and the Town Council/Barbershop Quartet is the conservative movement, including especially conservative media and pundits tasked with exposing Obamagate to the public.

Trump (the Mayor) has alleged criminal fraud by the Democrats (the Russian Collusion Hoax), and just as the conservatives are about to make it the centerpiece of a world-changing public discussion (upon the release of the Flynn Transcripts proving his case that the Trump administration was the victim of constitution-shattering abuse of power by Obama), the Democrats trick the conservatives into singing a race-centered equivalent of “Lida Rose” by launching race riots, literally the day before the release.

Suddenly, the criminality of the Obama team is forgotten, and the Town Council, and all the citizens are all singing their tune, cluelessly swept back up into the Marxist con game while a smug and smirking Harold Hill just picks up where he left off in his scheme to “fundamentally transform America.”

I am publishing this little reminder as a public service message, because unlike the redemptive ending of The Music Man, this dystopian version, “The Riot Man” does not have a happy ending, and we’re doomed to find that out in real time if the “Town Council” and the Citizenry don’t realize they’ve dropped the ball on by far the biggest (and still continuing) scandal in American history.

Striking Back Against Anarchy

Dr. Lively, a constitutional law attorney and pastor who founded and ran an inner-city mission for many years, offers analysis about the rioting and suggestions for “striking back” against the culture of anarchy. His insights and ideas are the fruit of prayer and meditation literally in the wilderness on a four day “fast” from consuming news, which he was prompted to pursue out of disgust and anger with the political left and their media organs. Three suggests for “striking back” in a positive manner are presented. One regarding the police. One regarding inner cities. The third regarding the media. He asks his viewers to forward these suggestions to the appropriate parties.

Last week my disgust and anger at the hypocrisy of the left surrounding the race riots reached the point that I took a 4-day “fast” from consuming news and literally went into the wilderness, to seek the Lord’s guidance, including a long hike on the Appalachian Trail and a time of prayer for our nation at the peak of a mountain. I would like to share the thoughts and inspiration I received during and after that sojourn.

First, I was confirmed in my mind and spirit that all that has transpired since the election of Barack Obama in 2008 has been the unfolding of end-times prophecy regarding the age of apostasy, and that the election of Donald Trump in 2016 represents a final opportunity for America to choose God and the Judeo-Christian Constitutional Republic that our Christian forebears established upon the foundation of the Bible.

Second, that the left’s abandonment of the pretense of rationality and civilized norms, and their now open embrace of mob-psychology, is an act of extreme desperation. What we’re seeing since the (planned and/or staged) murder of George Floyd is the crudest and least manageable form of regime change strategy (previously seen only in third-world countries like Venezuela), and they wouldn’t shift to this within US borders if there were any other choice.

The desperation is manifested not only in the Democrats letting their own cities burn, but in their willingness to sacrifice the very cornerstone of their long-term control strategy, which is “ownership” of the police and fire employee unions. Democrat city governance, especially on things like revenue bond issuance and other public spending, relies very heavily on the public endorsement of police and fire unions which enjoy a much higher level of public trust than the rest of the Democrat coalition. The fact they are now throwing the police under the bus and preventing the fire departments from fulfilling their mission is strong evidence that nothing now matters to the left but their immediate political survival – meaning the defeat of President Trump.
Like Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon and Hernando Cortez burning his ships on the shores of Mexico, there in now no turning back: the hard left must take control of the nation by force or die trying. If so, this is just the beginning of America’s darkest hour and much worse is to come.

My next point is that the American people are not stupid. While the lying media (which is also driven to extreme desperation) wants us all to think that the viral videos of White people kneeling before Black mobs to repent of their “White privilege” is representative of the national mind-set, it isn’t. Most of that is staged for psychological effect, an attempt to induce “Stockholm Syndrome” on a mass-scale in the hopes that the sheeple will follow suit. Of course, many will, especially young people, but the majority of independence-minded, formally naive Americans are instead getting a crash course in Marxism 101 – even if they’re not yet admitting that they have seen behind the curtain. (Thank God for the secrecy of the voting booth!)

For the first time ever the media have abandoned all pretense of objectivity, and they’re doing it intentionally so as to emphasize the urgency of the need to remove Donald Trump from office. They are literally sacrificing their most important asset – their credibility with the general public – which is now burning down like the Third Precinct Police HQ in Minneapolis. This is evidence that they see their only hope of survival in replacing the Trump administration with a Soviet system to which they can serve the role of “Pravda.”

I was inspired with three ideas for striking back against the anarchy.

First, as President Trump is already doing, we should “Back the Blue” in defense of law and order, but actually push back stronger. Show solidarity and support for the police without equivocating or making concessions based on a few anomalies. The premise of the Black Lives Matter argument is a lie: there is NO institutional racism in our judicial system and we shouldn’t grant that falsehood credence by attempting to placate the mob with policy changes that vindicate their pressure tactics! Whatever you feed will grow. We should instead demand increased police activity wherever they are demanding reductions so that the compromise is the status quo and not a single step further left.

Police unions should immediately call for “Blue-Flu” strikes: Not in the war zones, but in the districts of key Democrat politicians where rioting has not occurred. And, they should demand union member solidarity in these strikes from all other public employee unions. The strikes should last until the Democrat political leadership vigorously condemns the rioting in the war zones as unjustified and affirms the role of the police as essential in ending the epidemic of Black on Black violence in the inner cities.

Second, the Trump Administration should announce a plan to partner with the business community and churches to fundamentally transform the inner-cities through entrepreneurialism to break inner-city families free from government dependency and help them become owners of the real estate and businesses where they live – true top-tier stakeholders with pride of ownership and actual legacy wealth – which is currently not the case anywhere in America. The dirty secret of racism no-one talks about is that inner-city Blacks are still enslaved by the Democrats through 1) government financial dependency and 2) social service policies that intentionally disrupt what was once a healthy network of marriage-based natural families whose sons didn’t wage war against authority because they had loving fathers in their homes.

Third, press freedom under the First Amendment is the only category that has not been chipped away. The free exercise of religion, freedom of speech and the right of public assembly to address grievances have all been curtailed by our increasingly Marxist government, while the pro-Marxist so-called mainstream press has enjoyed free reign to establish an ideological monopoly that lies, misrepresents and manipulates the public with impunity.

President Trump could begin to reform the media by creating new guidelines for how news organizations are defined – including the new category of citizen journalism – and new standards by which journalistic ethics are defined. He could issue an Executive Order that would bind all media receiving taxpayer funding to the new guidelines. This would not legally affect private media companies, but once the public media were reformed to actually serve the public interest, there would be a working model of healthy journalism that the public could pressure the private companies to conform to.

I submit all of this to my readers and viewers to disseminate as they see fit.

How We Know These ARE the ‘Last Days’

Dr. Lively cites four key passages of Scripture to show how the Bible sets forth the last days timeframe and where we are in it.

Yes, These Are the “Last Days”

It is always best to let the Bible interpret the Bible. When it comes to understanding the “last days” there are a few straightforward Scripture passages that summarize what and when the “last days” are.

The first tells us precisely when the last days began.

In the very first sermon of the Christian church, the Apostle Peter “lifted up his voice, and addressed the crowd:

Acts 2: ‘14Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen carefully to my words. 15These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It is only the third hour of the day! 16No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. … 19I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord. 21And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ 22Men of Israel, listen to this message…”

We note first that the last days must be a very long period, not a short one, because they include the Day of the Lord (the second coming) which obviously hasn’t happened yet after nearly two thousand years. Why would such a long period of time be counted as “days?”

Peter directly answers that question in his teaching about the “Day of the Lord” in 2 Peter 3:8-13.

“8Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance. 10But the Day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire…11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to conduct yourselves in holiness and godliness 12as you anticipate and hasten the coming of the day of God, when the heavens will be destroyed by fire and the elements will melt in the heat. 13But in keeping with God’s promise, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.”

Two main points can be drawn from this passage. The familiar one is the thousand year day concept, which is strongly bolstered by the incredible prophecy of Christ’s coming in Hosea 6:1-4 (which also acknowledged the separateness of the two houses at the time of Christ’s first advent, just as Peter did in Acts 2). “Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us to pieces, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bind up our wounds. 2After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His presence. [These are the thousand year days referenced by Peter.] 3So let us know – let us press on to know the LORD. As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us like the rain, like the spring showers that water the earth. [This is a reference to the alignment of the first coming of Christ to the spring feasts of Leviticus 23.] 4What shall I do with you, O Ephraim? What shall I do with you, O Judah? [This is the two house emphasis in the prophecy in parallel to Acts 2:14 & 22.] For your loyalty is like a morning mist, like the early dew that vanishes.”

The second point to be drawn from 2 Peter 3:8-13 is that the Day of the Lord is also a thousand year day, specifically His thousand year reign in the “Millennial Kingdom.” It arrives “like a thief” and ends with the destruction of all physical matter. The entire thousand year day is compressed by Peter into a single sentence, but, Jesus uses John to unpack what happens between the bookends. In Revelation 19-22, a mind-blowing description of the second coming in 19:11-21, is followed by 20:1-6, unequivocally confirming — three separate times — that the Millennial Kingdom is indeed a thousand year term – (remember that this is Jesus Himself speaking, through John), then describes the events at the close of the thousand years in 20:7-15 (the final rebellion, Great White Throne judgement, Lake of Fire). Revelation 21-22 then follows with a detailed discussion of what Peter called the “new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells” (Heaven), which the righteous enter while the all of the creation is being destroyed by fire.

To review, there are three last days of a thousand years each. They began running at the first coming. We are near the close of the two day period of two thousand years, which apparently began running either at the start or end of Jesus’ earthly ministry (in no case later than the Peter’s Pentecost sermon) and thus the third day will begin soon, when Hosea said God will revive us so we can live in His presence (the Millennial Kingdom).

This analysis comports with the pattern of the Seven Biblical Feasts (the times and seasons) to which the first and second coming align, the pattern of the seven days of creation (and seven-thousand year duration of the Creation Story), and the pattern of the seven “day” week that always ends with the Sabbath. The Millennial Kingdom IS the Sabbath Day of the seven thousand year Creation week.

So, depending on when exactly the last days clock started, and whether or not the transition from one “day” to the next is abrupt and precise, and whether we’re using the lunar or solar calendar, we’re likely going to see the return of the Lord within a fairly short window of time: months perhaps, years probably, but not decades if Hosea 6 is intended to convey God’s timeframe to us, as I believe it is.

Scott Lively on Trump Unmasking Obama Terrorism

On the road to hold a planning meeting for the upcoming Black Robe Regiment Summit, Dr. Lively films a commentary defending President Trump’s delay in ordering federal intervention to quell Marxist rioting across America as a necessary acknowledgement of State’s Rights under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. Lively argues federal action was only justified by the obvious ineptitude and in some cases complicity of Dem governors (and mayors).
He characterized President Trump’s latitude with these state leaders (and their media co-conspirators) as another example of unmasking bad actors to public view, just as his Justice Department is unmasking Obama and many agents of the Deep State by the release of documentation of their criminal culpability. He reiterates his contention that the current wave of anarchy is designed in significant part to deflect public attention from Obamagate, starting as it did just a day or two before the heavily damning Flynn Transcripts were released.

Obamagate and the Race Riots

(Scott’s WND Column of Today)

Isn’t it interesting that Black Lives Matter and Antifa Anarchists launched a national campaign of mayhem and rioting at the start of the weekly news cycle in which the fully exculpatory Michael Flynn transcripts were finally released to the public? The trigger, was, of course, the outrageous and possibly deliberate George Floyd killing, conveniently carried out in full public view and captured on video for instantaneous social media virality. I predicted on April 22nd 2020 that the elites would orchestrate a new crisis as soon as it looked like America would regain her equilibrium, and it seems this may be it, or at least the first salvo in a new campaign of chaos.

The main purpose of the rioting, as was true of the now-waning Covid-19 Plandemic, is to spread fear. Fear is what keeps a sizable portion of the American people “sheltered-in-place,” and that phenomenon of social destabilization is the key to preventing economic recovery. An orchestrated economic depression is, of course, the cornerstone of the elites’ plan for taking down President Trump (which I again predict will fail).

That’s what this Season of Psy-Ops, with all its disinformation, propaganda and political intrigue, has always been about from its very beginning, when Barack Obama first began to realize that Trump could actually beat Hillary, thanks to the sabotage of the HRC campaign and the DNC by Bernie zealot Seth Rich, the Wikileaker Whistleblower who was (I opine) murdered in broad daylight for that act of treachery.

The timing of the rioting, and his immediate, highly inflammatory public statement, betrays the hand of Barack Obama behind it all. I predicted that also, in my WND column of January 3, 2017 . I compared Obama’s actions between the Trump election and inauguration to Hitler’s sabotage of France’s Cherbourg harbor just after D-Day in WWII. I then noted that Obama had taken the highly irregular step of setting up his own post-presidency political base in Washington DC. I closed with this prediction: “I have no doubt that Obama is planning his own Battle of Bloody Gulch [Hitler’s Cherbourg counter-offensive after the Americans had taken the city and began pushing east toward Germany] but one which he assumes he will win. Megalomaniacs cannot surrender graciously. Backed by armies of social justice warriors on the streets and in the hardened leftist bunkers of media, academia and big-money foundations, Obama will fight like a cornered rat to protect his legacy and it’s underlying ideology. Be certain of it, and never stop fighting until freedom has been restored.”

The very next day (January 4th), I published an article titled “Obama’s Desperate War-With-Russia-Gambit” in which I theorized that Obama was literally trying to orchestrate a hot war with Russia.

My WND column of February 17th 2020, titled “Heroic Michael Flynn May Have Prevented WWIII,” updated that argument with new facts. . In a May 9, 2020 follow-up post to my own blog, I boiled the essence of the case down to a set of media screen-shots in chronological order, and posted a video of myself explaining it all. That one was titled “Why Obama Targeted General Michael Flynn.” A big part of my assessment was vindicated with the release of the actual Flynn Transcripts, which I urge everyone to read. Those documents show that General Flynn did exactly as I suggested he did.

How does this all fit together with the new phase of inner-city rioting?

I predicted this rioting in my WND article of June 22, 2017 “The Purple Revolution is About to Run Red.” I was three years too early for some aspects of that prediction, while other aspects have come to pass. The unfulfilled remainder are pretty close to what is now apparently unfolding. . Per that title, I believe the entire campaign of anti-Trump machinations since the 2016 election is best characterized as Obama’s “Purple Revolution.” The Clintons are certainly at the top of Obama’s all-star team roster (and the Bush Dynasty are obvious co-conspirators also) but this pantheon of political evil-doers is clearly headed by Obama. And the regime change strategy and pattern of tactics are unmistakably those of the George Soros “color revolutions” playbook.

From 2016 to 2019, the Obama team’s extensive criminality at home and abroad was not obvious to the general public, though we constitutionalists knew it was virtually certain because of Hillary’s presence in his administration, and we got a few glimpses into the corruption with incidents such as “Fast and Furious” and Benghazi. In 2019, as facts began to emerge about “The Democrat Crime Scene Called Ukraine” (another of my WND articles) the anti-Trump ferocity of the Democrats seemed to rise in direct proportion to the disclosures.

In retrospect, due to the hard documentation of an array of criminal actions and conspiracies that has recently begun flowing into the public view from the still-ongoing investigations, I suggest that the “Purple Revolution” has been motivated as much or more by the Obama team’s fear of exposure and prosecution than by pure Marxist ideology. Thus, I am claiming vindication for my January 3, 2017 characterization of Obama as a “cornered rat.”

Lastly, I am also offering a different take on the significance of the riots. Yes, the fear-mongering agenda is still in play, but I think there’s a new target for that fear added to the mix: Democrat leaders who now realize heads will likely roll for the Obama team’s actions and want to distance themselves as much as possible without being too obvious about it. I think that’s why the race riots (and Antifa aggressions) are taking place in Democrat strongholds and not places like Ferguson and Charlottesville. They are reminders that pain can be inflicted on potential “traitors” as well as established enemies by the ones who wield the real power on the left.

And, call me crazy, but if that’s true, I predict master deal-maker President Trump may actually flip some Democrat leaders to his side by the time of the election. It’s a rare group of crooks that doesn’t turn on each other when actual prosecutors (as opposed to media pundits) start to draft actual indictments of their known associates. ###

Scott Lively on the BLM Race Riots

Dr. Lively contends that the purpose of Black Lives Matter rioting is to INCREASE Racism to justify the Marxist race-war narrative, and laments that too many conservatives and constitutionalists fall into the trap of lumping the innocent majority of Black Americans with the trained thugs of the BLM and the useful idiots who run with them.

He also argues that these riots, begun on Thursday, have been timed to deflect attention away from Friday’s release of the fully exculpatory Michael Flynn transcripts which expose the “Obamagate” co-conspirators to serious criminal liability.

Scott Teaches About Pentecost

On the evening before the Christian Pentecost Sunday, Dr. Lively relates one of his most interesting discoveries in the text of the Bible, related to the contrast of the letter and the spirit of the law in the stories of the Hebrew and Christian Pentecost experiences. The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:6 that “God has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” That teaching is astonishingly illustrated by the comparison of Exodus 32 (especially verse 28) with Acts 2 (especially verse 40). Dr. Lively also shows how God’s instructions on the keeping of the Pentecost holiday in Leviticus 23 bolster “two house” theology.

PROPHECY UNDER THE NEW COVENANT

This article was published as Dr. Lively’s weekly column on WND.com to announce the release of his second installment of The Prodigal Son Prophecy in video and PDF forms. To access those resources click HERE

There are innumerable theories on Biblical prophecy and numerous well established camps totally convinced of their respective conclusions. I have charted my own course based on the premise that the Bible is intended to be one harmonious document in which all the diverse components interconnect naturally. That requires balancing the Old and New Testaments and I believe the key to that balance is found in Jeremiah’s prophecy about the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31). It is cited in Hebrews 8 by way of explaining to the Hebrew people why the New Covenant was superior to the Old Covenant, but it also highlights two critical facts important to the study of prophecy generally.

Jesus has received a much more excellent ministry, just as the covenant He mediates is better and is founded on better promises. For if that first covenant had been without fault, no place would have been sought for a second…. ‘Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers…I will put My laws in their minds, and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people. No longer will each one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest.’ ”

Jeremiah is clearly describing Christianity, wherein God indwells those who accept Christ as Savior, Who specifically promised “when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come” John 16:13. That was a spiritual quantum leap of incalculable magnitude. The passage also makes clear that understanding prophecy is about listening to the Holy Spirit for yourself.

The purpose of prophecy under the New Covenant is to prepare the church for the Second Coming of Christ. We should therefore pay very close attention to how the New Covenant is defined by Jeremiah, and to the instructions of the mediator of the covenant, Jesus Christ, on the subject of prophecy. That means first, to recognize the centrality of the Two House theme in understanding the phenomenon of Christianity in prophecy – which almost no one with a large prophecy-themed following does – and second, to give far greater weight to Jesus on the timing and landmarks of prophecy than any other prophet.

To the first point, I refer you again to Hebrews 8:8 “I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”

Was the New Covenant primarily for the Gentiles? NO. In fact, Gentiles have to be “grafted in” before it will even apply to them (Romans 11). Was it for “the Jews” (the Biblical nickname for “Judeans” as distinct from “Israelites” – 2 Kings 16:5-6 )? NO. It was expressly promised to the two separate houses of the Hebrew sons of Jacob: the House of Leah and the House of Rachel, named (per patriarchal custom) for their sons Judah and Joseph (“Israel” per Jeremiah 31:9), respectively. Hebrews 8:8 is thus proof both that the two houses are still separate at the issuing of the New Covenant, and that the story of the New Covenant is intimately related to the past and future story of the two houses.

To the second point, I argue that the Olivet Discourse as presented in Matthew 24-25 is the ultimate foundation and guide to all prophecy study, because it was the instruction given by Jesus to His disciples in response to their direct question in Matthew 24:3, “When will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” I contend His answer was a point by point chronological summary of end-time events which is repeated with only slight variation in the Gospels of Mark (Chapter 13) and Luke (Chapter 21) and reiterated by Jesus in an expanded and annotated fashion in the Book of Revelation, recorded by the Apostle John.

In my analysis of Matthew 24-25, I track twelve events in Matthew 24, starting with the “birth pains” and ending with the glorification of the Bride of Christ at the resurrection and rapture (“birth”). I then continue into Chapter 25 to track the three sequential post-rapture events (in three parables): the Wedding Feast of the Lamb, the Testing of the Works, and the Return of the King. Those fifteen events establish a timeline template to which all other prophecies can be naturally correlated and aligned.

I next aligned Revelation to the Matthew 24-25 timeline, then brought in God’s time-keeping systems: the seven feasts of Leviticus 23, and the broader cycles-of-sevens teaching in Leviticus 25 to further assist on aligning the Old Testament prophecies to the timeline. Some of this will be familiar to those who have heard teachings on the Biblical Feasts which have been gaining popularity over the past decade.

Importantly, in my analysis, the three events of Matthew 25 fall within the Ten Days of Awe that begin with Yom Teruah (the Feast of Trumpets) on which I believe the resurrection and rapture will occur, and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), in which Christ will return with the Host of Heaven to take physical possession of the earth. While the Ten Days of Awe are a time of exceeding great joy for the Bride-become-Wife of God, they are simultaneously Ten Days of Wrath for those left behind on earth to suffer the bowl judgments, and finally, the Winepress of the Wrath of God.

I have designed a Scripture-citing graph that explains this last paragraph very simply and it will be included in the release this week in print and video, of my second installment of The Prodigal Son Prophecy: God’s Amazing Plan for the Restoration of the Two Hebrew Houses and the Salvation of the Gentiles.

The Prodigal Son Prophecy Chap 1 Part 1

In this video, Dr. Lively publishes the second installment of his book The Prodigal Son Prophecy: God’s Amazing Plan for the Restoration of the Two Hebrew Houses, and the Salvation of the Gentiles. This installment features is presentation of part one of chapter one, in which he sets forth his understanding of the last days timeline as laid out by Jesus in Matthew 24-25, the “Olivet Discourse,” and discusses how this timeline allows all of the end-times prophecies to be naturally harmonized and aligned with it, when triangulated with God’s timekeeping systems in Leviticus 23 and 25. Dr. Lively offers a completely different perspective of eschatology than most Christians are familiar with, but one which will is highly enlightening and easy to understand.

A PDF of the text version is offered below. To view and/or read the first installment, go to our page dedicated to this book, which you may find by hovering over the button “Scott Lively Books” in the Masthead of the Home Page. Or click HERE

Scott Lively on the Coming Patriotic Revival

Dr. Lively characterizes the orchestrated Covid 19 Pandemic as the third strike of the global elites in their effort to take down the Trump Administration and kill the anti-globalist movement (the first two being, of course, the Russian Collusion Hoax and the Impeachment Scam), and predicts a patriotic revival this summer, even as the Dems and RINO Republicans double-down on their police state agenda.

He doesn’t minimize the pain and suffering still to come because of the attempted take-down of the US economy, but suggests that a little taste of genuine totalitarianism may turn out to be exactly what the American people needed to remember why “liberty” was such a central theme of the founders generation and to spur them into action. He admits that the majority still appear to be compliant “sheeple,” but points out that the overthrow of King George only required a third of the population to actively revolt against him — and it seems that about a third of Americans today are fully awakened to the reality of the Deep State and eager to defeat it.

Of the remainder, Dr. Lively observes that “compliance” to Dictators does NOT equal agreement with them, and suggests that in the secrecy of the voting booth these apparent “sheeple” will take their own form of revenge in November by giving Trump and those aligned with him landslide victories.

Scott Lively on Taking Down the Lying Media

Dr. Lively raises the issue of prosecuting journalists for conspiracy to obstruct justice in relation to recent disclosures that the FBI used leaks to the media to help drive its Russian Collusion Hoax. He talks about his own experiences as a target of character assassination by the mainstream media, and about his intention as a teenage leftist to become a journalist himself to help “change the world” (which same time frame, he contends, was the period in which the Marxists completely took over the media in America.)

Scott Lively on Wimp vs Warrior Churches

Dr. Lively puts on his pastor hat to contrast the attitude of Massachusetts vs California churches about “re-opening” within the context of similarly overreaching government lock-down policies. He applauds the decision of California churches to simply declare to Fascist Governor Gavin Newsom their intention to reopen on May 31st (Pentecost Sunday) and criticizes the decision of Massachusetts churches to approach Uber-RINO Governor Charles Baker as supplicants, implicitly validating the idea that Christian worship gatherings are a privilege which government has the right to grant or deny.

Dr. Lively then puts on his constitutional lawyer hat to briefly summarize the history of governments’ encroachment on Christian liberty, and how the “separation of church and state” was transformed first from a cultural metaphor, to (purportedly) binding constitutional law in which the separate sovereignty of the church was at least still implicitly acknowledged, and then further converted into a legal and political “one way street” in which the government claims the authority to control churches and the “duty” of the church is to submit to being categorized as a “non-essential service” and to comply with government dictates.

He strongly urges all Bible-believing churches in American to follow the California rather than the Massachusetts example. And he specifically exempts the courageous Pastor Kristopher Casey of Alden Square Baptist Church of Worcester, Massachusetts from this criticism.

Acts 4: 13-20

When they saw the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they marveled and took note that these men had been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing there with them, they had nothing to say in response. So they ordered them to leave the Sanhedrin and then conferred together.

“What shall we do with these men?” they asked. “It is clear to everyone living in Jerusalem that a remarkable miracle has occurred through them, and we cannot deny it. But to keep this message from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them not to speak to anyone in this name.”

Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to listen to you rather than God. For we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
