And How Many have You Killed Today?
I am sure that you, like me, have been following the Wikileaks revelations. Not that I have been shocked by what I have learned about the corruption and duplicity of our governments in both home and international affairs.
There are, however, two things that have greatly disturbed me in looking at this material. One is the immense cyncism of our leaders - political and industrial - and the arrogant way in which they treat both each other (allies and enemies alike) and ordinary people, and then try to spin their actions as the work of responsible patriots. They are quick to moralise and condemn those who have exposed their lies. But are we surprised by that? When the Christian ethic has been all but expunged from political affairs then realistically you can only expect such behaviour. For those of you who would like a sample of what I am talking about (just in case you have not been following this very important disclosure), then I recommend you watch the movie, WikiRebels - The Documentary while it it remains uncensored. It will hopefully forever change your view of the world.
I think the thing that disturbed me the most was the realision of the effect of computer games is having on the military. Many of today's soldiers, conditioned by computer war games to 'kill as many of the enemy as you can', make no moral distinction between cyberwar (in which you are targeting lifeless pixels) and the real thing. With their minds preprogrammed by computer games to view war and killing as a game, they transfer this mindset to the real world of the battlefield. War then becomes a game of killing as many people as you can, as much released footage from Afghanistan and Iraq has demonstrated.
The Bible warns:
Gone, it would seem, are the days when soldiers guilty of murder are prosecuted. Not an easy thing to do when their leaders are as guilty - if not more so - than they are. As most informed people know, the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan is not ultimately about controlling terrorism but about oil and opium (which make money) and world dominion (by those who have the money).
"Their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace" (Isa.59:6-8, NKJV).
Peace begins at home and what you allow your children to do or not do. Violent movies and computer games play an important part in conditioning their behaviour in the real world. Are their minds captive to Christ or to violence?
There are two things I want to ask you today:
What you decide may have enormous repercussions - good or evil - for you and your family in the days and months ahead.
- 1. Are you allowing your children to play violent war games and deceiving yourself into believing that they are harmless? If so, I urge you to reconsider again; and
- 2. Will you, as I challenged yesterday, be a David or a Saul? Will you courageously stand against evil, in the full spiritual armour of Yahweh as David did, or will you trust in the armour of the flesh and live in fear, as Saul did?
Comments from Readers
"Drunken on blood. Overt we see, Covert many means, we could sum up as in the poisioning of the Fountains of the Waters whereby we are termed 'Water Vessels' supposedly owned by this earth's authority called the "Prominent Horn" a real person in power in that office. We'll all see the one they will reveal of that hidden for so so long. Like a government that has existed for quite some time has had different rulers will get to the one they will show to the world when they have accomplished total control. The destruction is coming of the "Harlot" riding it's back. That Harlot has fulfilled the purpose. Anything, anyone not giving in to the desolate 'one' nation combined nations, economic, religion, government... to accept the prominent horn and confusion of Babylon is a target. Many of those they have used they despise as a part of the 'harlot'. The "Rich Men" have been eating her flesh and will burn her with fire to totally remove her. This Wikileaks being a part of the 'eating' and we see the show now of justification for the fire. None of this would be made available for viewing if the "prominent horn" had not allowed it to say. And since seeing so much justification now being made public they must be getting close to fire time. Real people, real government. What started in October this year will continue to the end. And we know who gets the final Word!! Those folks are not playing pretend games and we who are speaking in their face about the business of our Master! Stephen in Acts 7 said exactly what we need to know to identify the 'prominent horn' and the mystery of iniquity. To the fullness of the 'gentiles' even to the time when the 'DOOR' is shut. Now to call upon the meaning of Revelation 14:7 over mans 'water law' they are running this planet by. A real understanding is found there to know absolute relief from any authority of the desolation!! To the ultimate freedom the Hope now and that to come!" (RDR, USA, 13 December 2010)
