Anti-fa-la-la-la

Incredible....insidious  . . . with dire, ominous implications if it manages to gain widespread traction.

As some of you know, I have been warning about the resurgence of communist totalitarianism taking over America and the west since I started writing my blog and doing podcasts back around 2004....And long before that, before the internet....

People (some) thought I was kooky . . . "communism is dead!" they would laugh and scoff. . . .

Well and then I said there would be widespread riots and eventually martial law put in by a Republican president . . . blah, blah, blah... etc.

We now see the "Antifa" ("anti-fascist") movement that the anarchists and communist agitators are employing on college campuses and elsewhere....These are the shock troops of the communist militants. . . .

What is so dire and ominous is the "ideological" slant this movement is taking and the implications.....

One faction of this group is proclaiming the "objectivity", "freedom of speech" and even the idea of "truth" itself . . . are "white supremacist" constructs: “Historically, white supremacy has venerated the idea of objectivity, and wielded a dichotomy of ‘subjectivity vs. objectivity’ as a means of silencing oppressed peoples,” they explain. “The idea that there is a single truth–‘the Truth’–is a construct of the Euro-West--"

Wow.  This is a direct and demonic assault on Truth, on God Himself and utterly absurd from the outset.  If "truth" and "objectivity" are white supremacist cultural tools of oppression... these protesters have just shot themselves in the foot.  Their statements are instantly self-refuted and can be dismissed, obviously, as they cannot claim to be "truth" statements or objectively true.....

Yet the idiocy of tyranny is never a defeat to itself. . . . Terror, violence, intimidation are its weapons, and highly effective, truth be damned. . . . 

Anyway... just thought I make note of this newest development in the Maoist takeover.....

God

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.” 

“To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love.”

“Always, everywhere God is present, and always He seeks to discover Himself to each one”

“You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him.”

Paschal From Chrysostom

 Paschal or Easter Sermon from Saint John Chrysostom
Let all Pious men and all lovers of God rejoice in the splendor of this feast; let the wise servants blissfully enter into the joy of their Lord; let those who have borne the burden of Lent now receive their pay, and those who have toiled since the first hour, let them now receive their due reward; let any who came after the third hour be grateful to join in the feast, and those who may have come after the sixth, let them not be afraid of being too late, for the Lord is gracious and He receives the last even as the first. He gives rest to him who comes on the eleventh hour as well as to him who has toiled since the first: yes, He has pity on the last and He serves the first; He rewards the one and is generous to the other; he repays the deed and praises the effort.
Come you all: enter into the joy of your Lord. You the first and you the last, receive alike your reward; you rich and you poor, dance together; you sober and you weaklings, celebrate the day; you who have kept the fast and you who have not, rejoice today. The table is richly loaded: enjoy its royal banquet. The calf is a fatted one: let no one go away hungry. All of you enjoy the banquet of faith; all of you receive the riches of his goodness.
Let no one grieve over his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed; let no one weep over his sins, for pardon has shone from the grave; let no one fear death, for the death of our Savior has set us free: He has destroyed it by enduring it, He has despoiled Hades by going down into its kingdom, He has angered it by allowing it to taste of his flesh.
Jesus_ resurrection
When Isaiah foresaw all this, he cried out: “O Hades, you have been angered by encountering Him in the nether world.” Hades is angered because frustrated, it is angered because it has been mocked, it is angered because it has been destroyed, it is angered because it has been reduced to naught, it is angered because it is now captive. It seized a body, and lo! it discovered God; it seized earth, and, behold! it encountered heaven; it seized the visible, and was overcome by the invisible.
O death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? Christ is risen and life is freed, Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep. To Him be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.

The Least



The least. . . . 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'


The thing is . . . God is sovereign . . . and if people are in a bad way, if they are lowly and someone else is material blessed (ie., wealth, looks, prestige) the latter has no place to be taking credit. The "blessed" one is in no position to be feeling superior, self righteous. If we've got ANY thing good to boast of, it is only from God, by God.


He chose an average vessel, humble . . . for Himself to convey in.


If people are in a pitiful state we ought not be looking on them with disgust and condescension. For if we do, we are actually laying that on God, who is the Author of everyone's station.





'Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'

"Syria And A Bear" revisited

I'm not liking this Syria move one bit.  First off anything Hillary and John McCain praise and would do is a major red flag.  And then there's the whole narrative I've had since way back when I had a dream about "Syria and a bear" . . . where I seemed to see that engagement/entanglement with Syria was a major marker/trigger for big time global trouble. . . . I believe I mentioned expecting one result I foresaw was Syria being divided into 3 sections. . . . If I were of the mindset that sees Zionist agendas behind all, I would be noting that Kushner, a modern Orthodox Jew who has gained sudden and increased influence in Trump's inner circle . . . well . . . now we've got war moves on Syria.....

I don't believe that Assad would gas his own people--it makes no sense.  Looks more like a set-up--a phony pretext to kick off more of the globalist Middle East agenda that the neo-cons got started with in Iraq, and then 911 and so on...I believe it was "Project For A New American Century" (PNAC).

I hope it was simply a crass move to get the media off his back re the stupid "Russian collusion" diversion. . . .

Here's an old snippet from around 2013 mentioning Syria fwiw:
 "For any new readers and fwiw, which probably isn't much, years ago, when Syria was not even on anyone's radar and causing no notice at all, and everyone was saying "Iran, Iran" . . . I wrote that I believed Syria was actually the kingpin to final NWO escapades . . . . I had a strange dream, for one thing, at the time, which included a bear--an obvious symbol of Russia's perturbations in the scene . . ". .

Kushner ....

Jared Kushner, son-in-law . . . 36 years old . . . is acing out Bannon . . . and taking a larger role in the administration?  And Trump is fine with this?  Hopefully the apple falls far from the tree....Jared's pop is a piece of work.....crooked typical NY greed merchant....prison time...  dunno...seems like the swamp ain't too far from from this crew.... http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/features/9874/
Just wondering....

"Kushner is a committed Democrat who has contributed to hard-line partisan organizations including the Democratic National Committee PAC ($18,000); the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee‘s Building Fund ($26,250); and the New Jersey Democratic Party ($17,000).
Kushner has also donated to HillPac to elect Hillary Clinton for president ($5,000); Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer ($2,000); Democrat Sen. Cory Booker ($10,400); and the Democrats’ Committee for Working Families ($10,000).
Kushner also gave to the shamed former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey ($4,700); the Democrats’ New Millennium PAC ($10,000); Hillary Rodham Clinton ($4,000); democrat Jon Corzine ($4,000); and former Sen. Robert Torricelli ($12,000)." (the blaze)

Impossible But For Faith



And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. --Hebrews 11:6


Faith is such a profound, powerful, blessed gift. It is not a weak, half-hearted belief that has no power to transform, sustain, protect. . . . It is not an intellectual agreement at some distant point and then going on, life as usual. . . .


Faith is a destroyer of worry . . . of fear . . . of panic . . . of depression. . . .


First, believing that God is sovereign over all . . . then knowing He is Good . . . and that He "CAUSES all things to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." (Rom. 8:28) . . . where is the trouble?


The thing is, is that too often those who claim to have faith . . . really don't believe and trust that God is sovereign . . . or that He is Good . . . or that He causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him. . . . They give lip service to the notion, very superficially, but then go on doubting, questioning, complaining, trying to control . . . and fearing. . . .


The verse says it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God without faith. Impossible.


And if we do have faith, this too is something we cannot boast of. Faith is a gift as well. (Eph.2:8)


Everything good is a gift. We merit nothing. We can do no good thing unless God provides it first.


All that's left is gratitude, thankfulness, awe . . . at His magnanimity. The devils instantly contradict such a thought . . . and shake their fist at God . . . angry that He is God and they are not. All false philosophies are the corrupt mind rebelling against God's sovereign grace . . . devising clever and intricate justifications for their hatred, calling God unjust.


Faith! Faith! Faith!


[p.s. yeah something strange is going on with my text...i haven't changed any settings and don't know why it shows up white highlighted....Will have to poke around and see if i can figure out what the deal is with that :) ]
