Most political historians agree that the revolutionary world in which we live today - with all its political and social upheavels - can be traced back in essence one way or another to the Illuminati-inspired and directed French Revolution of 1789. From it historians trace the foundations of the previous 20th century: the least stable, most violent and cataclysmic of centuries. One writer described it as "the first holocaust to liberty" as though the murderous means justified its end.
The King of Peace does not agree:
One thing we need to remember about the kind of democracy that the French Revolution spawned was that it was not one that included religion even though it ostensibly tolerated it. The goal of the French Revolution was a wholly secular state in which religion played no part. Accordingly, it turns on religion and persecutes it from time to time, defending its atheistic base.
"Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword" (Matt.26:52, NKJV).
What do we as Christians and religionists want in a world which we must share with atheists and others? We are not asking for theocracy because we know that theocracy can only be set up supernaturally by Yahweh, and that this will occur by direct intervention from Heaven. Theocracies set up by the sword are invariably violent and corrupt, and hardly spiritual, and in that respect they are no more or less oppressive than secular equivalents such as communism or national socialism. We have seen plenty of all of these and we do not want or need them. From a political point-of-view we want religious tolerance of the kind advocated by Voltaire. What is needed in the courts is religious neutrality not 'political correctness'.
The reality of the political climate everywhere in the West is that everything is tolerated except Christianity. Holocausts - whether rapid (as under communism and fascism) or slow (as under liberal totalitarianism) - never produce good fruits. The idealism of Voltaire soon gave way to a de-christianising crusade of the Jacobins in the new French Republic. Churches and monasteries were closed, sold and quarried and magnificent structures like Notre Dam in Paris and Reims were only spared because the former was converted into the 'Temple of Reason' and the latter into a storehouse. As personal liberties and regional autonomy became eroded, so major cities like Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseilles and Toulon arise in violent revolt against the revolution of dictatorship. The response was savage repression. Vendée, which refused to accept the Revolution, suffered terribly and even today the inhabitants of the region have no love for it. It is, accordingly, probably the most religious part of France today.
The French Revolution simultaneously inspired the Bolshevik, Fasicst and Liberal revolutions of our modern time. Are all "men born and remain free and equal in rights" as the U.S. Declaration of Independence, influenced as it was by the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, asserts, or does this now only apply to non-Christians?
Every system has its scapegoats - communism's was all religion, the bourgoisie and the upper classes; fascism's was very similar, refined in the case of nazism to target the Jews especially, and now liberalism's is Christianity in particular. Frankly I see little difference between them. And the political labels 'left', 'centre' and 'right' seem much the same to me because all are essentially rooted in revolt against the Creator.
The modern Liberal Revolution is no less dangerous than the violent ones of communism and fascism and what makes it especially dangerous is that it advances in tiny increments - so slowly that what is really going on is barely noticeable. Only near the end, as the goal looms in sight, does it begin to pick up speed and reveal its true colours, for it is in truth nothing more than the back of a horse which the more violent breed of revolutionary has been riding all along. We hear their outbursts every now and then, as when a Social Democratic representative of the Swedish Parliament recently compared Christianity to Nazism, and we see it in all its oppressive ugliness in the recent kidnapping of homeschooler Dominic Johannsson by Swedish Social Services in Gotland. There is a poison in the mix of our democracies, and it is anti-Christian, anti-family and anti-freedom.
I do not know if there is any chance for believers in liberal democracy any more because I see it mutating into a terrible monster worse even than those spawned by the last century and inspired by the French Revolution. And those who oppose it - especially those who do so the most loudly - are rapidly disappearing in 'accidents'. Only today I learned that one of the leading lights of the UK Independence Party, and one of its most gifted speakers, the bane of the EU cabal and its cronies, nearly lost his life in a light aircraft 'accident' yesterday during the British General Election. And we all know what happened to the conservative Polish President and his entourage when his plane met with an 'accident' in Russia earlier this year.
I wonder how long it will be before the last of the luminaries of freedom are 'taken out' and the world is plunged into its worst Dark Age in history? It is time for the Messianic Community or Church to wake up. History is about the repeat itself for one penultimate, terrible time.
