This post is clarifying important issues in dealing with the World Order, issues that are raised every day by those opposed to the NWO. Yest. I wrote about a global war between the 2 Kingdoms of Life & Death. Some people will end up “collateral damage”. Others will rise to challenge the World, and will find themselves wounded & alone on the front lines. The World is set up to shred those who would rebel against the dark side’s slavery & take the higher road to freedom & godliness, and friendship w/ God.
Let’s look at Christ’s approach. We see a woman who has been grabbed by a group who want to kill her, she appears abandoned by all, and is facing imminent death. Wisely, Christ tells her accusers, “he who is without sin cast the first stone.” This stops her imminent death, now what of her future? He says, “Go and sin no more.” Likewise, Christ stops the penalty for our sins from being carried out by his propitiation (payment of our debt) 1 JN 2:2. And again he says to all of us, “Go & sin no more.” He could have told her, flee to a country where they don’t stone people for adultery, but he didn’t. Why? Because the real battle is for us to overcome these temptations on a pilgrimage of purification. There is a danger that we think the battle is distant, like on Capitol Hill. The battle w/ the God of this World System, & his hierarchy, is quite personal, and begins within ourselves, like the cartoons that have an angel & devil on separate shoulders whispering into a person’s ears.
PAIN CREATES A SENSATION OF ABANDONEMENT. A test that the divine Teacher hands us is pain, & its accompanying sensation of abandonment. It is common to feel alone when hit with pain…that is why Satan attacked Job with pain. He knew that people in pain have a hard time not becoming angry with God. Job’s wife bitched at Job, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God & die.” (Job 2:9) So Job was on his own, even without a supportive loving wife. In pain, the person turns inward…his or her sense of wonder faints, the realization that the person can be part of their own destiny ebbs, & a common reaction takes over to seal part of oneself off from God and humankind. This sealing is dangerous as it creates a self-fulfilling dynamic, where the person increasing feels more estranged. The demonic subtly encourages the person to “give in” to the pain, and give up. A spirit of death has now been invited in. Job refused to give in to the temptations, “Let me be weighed in a just balance, & let god know my integrity!” JOB 31:6 Once we get past the test, overcome it so to speak, the tested person now sees the dignity & comedy of humanity in its frailty. We want to be little gods, but are just mortal bods. Feeling frail, feeling pain & abandonment are common tests. Inspired by the Spirit, Paul tries to encourage us, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—-always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” 2 COR 4:7-10
“…the life of Jesus may be manifested in our body”. An interesting concept. Christ purified his body with fasts. He was the best at blessing the food he put into his body. He followed the dietary laws of God, showing us that the simple act of eating can be an act of holy devotion towards our Creator. Purification, call it holiness, was an important part of what he did with his body, soul & spirit. This then is where the battle begins. These life changing truths are revealed by His Spirit. (cf. 1 COR 2:10 et al.) “The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (GAL 2:20)
So the battle with the World is upfront & personal. “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” ROM 12:2 One of the hard lessons God showed me, was that I could not run from the World System, the battle is all around us. When I tried to escape the World by living with the Amish & later Mennonites, I saw that they too were infiltrated by World. For instance, at one pt., my Amish neighbors south of me were a family of programmed multiples. Later, in working w/ ex-Illum. I discovered some Amish families had even made deals w/ the Illum. to provide them extra babies. This is the nature of the battle, it is upfront & personal, and the enemy will give you pain to estrange you and separate you from your support system. Once estranged, and alone, you become an easier target. People ask me for the secret of my success. Part of it is that I kept building bridges to good people as fast as I could, while the enemy burned them as fast as he could. Don’t let yourself be isolated, reach out my friends.
