Rosh Chodesh X
The Compromised & the Insane
Chag sameach Rosh Chodesh kol beit Yisra'el and mishpachah - and welcome to the first day of the tenth month in the biblical calendar which will be no ordinary month. At the risk of sounding repetitious, I have to warn people once more: you need to be ready for what's coming.
The Siege of the Body of Messiah
I wish to preface today's message with a word from King Hezekiah who, with his fellow Judahites was surrounded by the mightiest army in the Middle East in his day and faced potential disaster. In so many ways believers and lovers of liberty are similarly surrounded:
The Problem of Advancing Technology
"'Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is Yahweh our Elohim (God) to help us and to fight our battles.'" And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said" (2 Chron.32:7-8, NIV).
The deliverance of Jerusalem required supernatural deliverance, a demonstration of Yahweh's power, because no other options were realistically available. Today I want to talk about deliverance, and specifically, physical deliverance, when true believers find themselves in situations which they cannot, in their own power, extricate themselves from. For Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the problem was a mighty army, a pagan show of force. In our day this is also true in some places but we face - and will face - other challenges. High tech is growing at a phenomenal pace and unless you have access to high tech yourself with which to meet dangers post from this source, you are either going to need to make sure that you are not in those situations where you have to face down life-threatening situations or you are going to need to have access to supernatural power, through emunah (faith). Although some of you would, I am sure, be interested to talk about high tech - like drones, robots, androids, laser weaponry, and the like, we need to deal with a more pressing problem which Christians and Messianics aren't talking about much - insanity. But more about that in a moment.
When the Going Gets Tough
I am sure most of you are all familiar with the opening lyrics of Billy Ocean's song which have become proverbial even if, like me, you may know nothing about his music:
Anticipating Our Own Coming Sieges
"When the going gets tough,
the tough get going...
When the going gets tough,
the tough get ready."
That would be true in any kind of environment, from the physical to the spiritual. But at the same time, the cowards also get going...only away from challenging trouble spots. And we are about to see just that. People are going to run away - flee - en masse. Why did I introduce this message with the account of the siege of Jerusalem by the Assyrians? Because believers are about to experience a new level of what it means to be 'under siege' by an apparently irresistable power. And as always, they won't see it coming, because nobody truly is able to anticipate the nature of the area in which Yahweh is going to allow them to be tested.
Expect to Be Deserted by Friends
We all have illusions about ourselves, both about our strengths and weaknesses. Yahweh wants us spiritually strong so that we will not be intimidated by the "arm of flesh" when it is waved threateningly at us. Don't be surprised when many of those you thought were loyal friends turn against you, or when those you thought weak turn out to be strong and loyal. Expect it.
Begging For the Truth About Our Reality
A few days ago I was wrestling with my flesh before Yahweh, forced low by my ever pressing illness which continues to get worse, and came to a point where I just begged Yahweh to "lay it out as it really is" in my life. I wanted the brutal truth - all of it - even if it hurt and shook me up. And after He had revealed 'the brutal truth' and I did some letting go of expectations, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. I also slept longer than I have in a very long time. It has been an intense two weeks for me. I have been trying to better understand the secret of the success of the life of George Müller, but more than anything wanting to discover the root of this man of Elohim's (God's) strength, not in words but in power.
Performing When Not Depending
This was the revelation I got - simplicity itself, but like the elephant in the room, so easily missed. Yahweh showed me that when I was not depending on Him I was performing, like an actor on the stage. And actors, as you know, live for the approval and applause of their audience, even if they won't admit it. When we aren't truly submitted to Yahweh, we seek the approval of men. We may say we aren't, because we know intellectually that is wrong, but when it comes to the crunch, we actually are. Or to put it another way, we can end up 'playing games'.
Like I said, this is by no means a new message, but it is one that has already impacted - and is continuing to impact - me at this time, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that it is one that Yahweh wants to impact you with, which is why I am called to bring this davar (word) to you. This came to me in the aftermath of our 30th anniversary as a ministry, so I have had a lot to look back on in reflection in terms of my own dependency on Yahweh, or lack thereof. How much in the past, I had to ask myself, were we just putting on a religious performance? How concerned were we with reputation in the eyes of men? How did we respond to persecution? Or to betrayal by brethren? How did we respond to legitimate criticism and humiliation when we were in the wrong? Were we honest or did we try to hide or smooth things over? What was the nature of the 'damage control' we used, and why did we use it? Was it to legitimately protect people or was it to save face?
I don't propose to go down that road as that is in the past. Digging up our past - looking for skeletons in cupboards - serves little good unless it is to free us from some lie that is keeping us in bondage or because closure is needed with someone. I say all of this with one aim in view: to encourage everyone to let go of whatever it was, or is, that has caused us to 'act' or 'perform' so that we can be genuine blood-bought and empowered sons and daughters of Elohim (God). That does come with a price, and the price is to forfeit your own will. Easily said.
The Old- and New-Timers Who Returned from Babylon
In the midst of this piece of self-disclosure, Yahweh led me to the Book of Ezra because there was something there He wants the Remnant to be cogniscent of. The time-frame is immediately post-exile. Some of the Judahites are back in the Promised Land from their 70 year exile in Babylon which means there are a few 'old timers' who remembered what it was like before the destruction of the city and its temple. But for the most part it was a new and fresh generation. I want you to especially notice the different responses of the two generations because it's why, in part, my generation has to exit the stage, save a tiny handful of 'old faithfuls'. This is the fourth year of the Second or Final Exodus, so we are very much at the very beginning of this new work when you consider how much time still lies ahead of us. So it was back then in respect of the rebuilding of the temple.
Supervising the Rebuilding of the Temple
Back to Ezra. This is the second year of the return, when Zerubabbel ben Shialtiel and Yeshua ben Yozadak, along with the cohenim (priests) and Levites, started work on the rebuilding of the destroyed temple. As we talk about visible things, I want you to translate this into the invisible - into what Yahweh wants to do with us now inside - inside you and me - for the process is the same. Levites who were 20 years and older were set-apart to supervise the work of building the temple (Ezra 3:8), a reminder of the age at which mature and responsible shammashim or deacons can be called to service, the office of Elder being reserved for those 30 and older. I am sure you have already noticed the types of Yahweh and Yah'shua (Jesus) in Zerubabbel and Yeshua, respectively.
Order and Authority
The first point I want to make concerning those who think they are of the Remnant is that right from the very start - as was the case in the first year of temple construction - there was toqef or authority and there was order. Levites were appointed:
The Foundation Laid
"Yeshua with his sons and his kinsmen, Kadmiel, Binnui, and Hodaviah, together assumed control of those responsible for the work on the House of Elohim (God)" (Ezra 3:9, NEB).
This is a Patriarchate or Triumvirate of Three, the equivalent of the apostles Peter, James and John. Then, we read:
Foundations of the Spiritual Temple
"When the builders had laid the foundation of the temple of Yahweh, the cohenim (priests) in their robes took their places with their trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with their cymbals, to praise Yahweh in the manner prescribed by David king of Israel; and they chanted praises and thanksgiving to Yahweh, singing, 'It is good to give thanks to Yahweh, for His ahavah (love) towards Israel endures for ever'" (Ezra 3:10-11a, NEB).
What are the foundations of the spiritual temple? We talked about these last sabbath. Can anyone remember them? There were eight, as given by the apostle Peter:
Essentials for Remnant Qualification
- 1. Emunah (faith) in Yah'shua (Jesus);
- 2. Goodness;
- 3. Knowledge or spiritual emet (truth), including divine tavnith (pattern);
- 4. Self-control;
- 5. Perseverance - sticking with it, staying firm;
- 6. Godliness;
- 7. Brotherly kindness; and
- 8. Ahavah (love).
This is the foundation of the New Covenant life. All of these are essential before the Remnant can start building anything. Forget about building any walls, rooms, roofs, or filling the temple with sacred objects. The foundation means everything. If the foundation is wrong, everything we build is in vain. How, then, is establishing foundations thus accomplished? Through discipline and order. Those temple-builders were organised and submitted to structure, something this generation hates which is why it is all the more important. And finally, our worship has to be authentic and not a performance. We're not here to entertain goats but feed and equip sheep to feed and equip other sheep. We are not showmen because nothing we do should impress the flesh. If it does, it's fake.
Consistently over the the last 30 years I have encountered the spirit of anarchy. People wanting to do things their own away, alone, unaccountable, and outside of authority structures. I would say this was probably one of the biggest hurdles to the purification of the Remnant and why it has failed time and time again. Ministries and churches have been built up on false foundations which have had to be torn down and rebuilt. Only three days ago I was going through our main website with a metaphorical scythe and tearing out articles and links left, right and centre, that no longer met our raised standards. And the pruning has only just begun. It must be the same with us.
Between Wailing and Rejoicing
So here we come to the next problem. Continuing with our text:
Sweeping Away the Old
"All the people raised a great shout of praise to Yahweh because the foundation of the house of Yahweh had been laid. But many of the cohenim (priests) and Levites and heads of families, who were old enough to have seen the former house (temple), wept and wailed aloud when they saw the foundation of the house laid, while many others shouted for simcha (joy) at the top of their voice" (Ezra 3:12b, NEB).
You see, there are going to be no fine 'buildings', vestments or fancy Armani suits and silk shirts, or well-lit stages with leading-edge tech for the Remnant - everything is going to be considerably reduced, or at least it will appear that way if all you can remember are the 'good old days' when there was more liberty, congregations had fine meeting houses, people were wealthier, and all the other 'positive' things of my generation. I have already wept for my lost world and what's left of it is about to be swept away, but I know many of the older believers called to the Remnant are expecting more of the 'show', that Christianity and Messianism once were, to continue. That's gone, finished. This is going to be a hard time for those from every part of the Body - the 'formalists' as well as the 'charismatics'. That performance and drama is over. It has no place in the new foundation being laid and if you are trying to build on the old church and synagogue systems, well, I'm sorry, but you are going to be swept away. It's as simple as that. You can't be used because you're part of the problem necessitating Judgment.
The Drowning Out
So there is a great advantage to be raised in the new generation who, if they have been raised right, have much lower expectations and are not impressed by all showmanship and pantomime of the decadent, corrupt and diseased Body of Messiah started by my generation, and taken to the very extreme by unregenerated millennial nominal 'believers', which is dying. But here's the good news:
Repent or Perish
"The people could not distinguish the sound of the shout of simcha (joy) from that of the weeping and wailing, so great was the shout which the people were raising, and the sound could be heard a long way off" (v.13, NEB).
We all have to work through our issues in our own way, I guess. Just so you know, it can't be avoided or postponed any longer. You either "repent or ... perish" (Lk.13:3,5, NKJV), that's how serious things have got.
Beware of False Friends
Now permit me to turn a spotlight on a danger spot to be navigated which will require discernment which will only be readily given to those who have learned discipline and order. You'll see how that counts next. What happend back in the days of the rebuilding of the temple? When the enemies of the returned exiles heard what was going on, they spoke to the heads of the families in charge and asked:
When False Believers Get Nasty
"Let us join you in the building, for like you we seek the face of Elohim (God), and we have been sacrificing to Him ever since the days of Esarhadden king of Assyria, who brought us here" (v.2, NEB).
You see the problem, I hope, and understand why the Judahites and Benjamites said 'No!' and why these Yahweh-worshipping Assyrian colonists, who had interbred with those Israelite farmers left behind to ensure the land remained productive, got nasty. Who do these people represent today? They are believers, yes, but their religion is a hybrid of Scriptural emet (truth) and tradition. They are not built on the right foundation. The spiritual 'cement' is compromised. You see, they wanted to join in after the foundations were finished without having participated in that labour themselves. They wanted to do the fun work, that everyone could see and compliment them on, but not the 'below ground' work which no one can see unless they draw near. They wanted the rewards of Kingdom-building without paying the price. They wanted the blessings without the sacrifice. They wanted to ride on the backs of those who sweated and suffered doing the 'menial' work. They wanted to build the fancy structure on top of the foundations but not engage in the invisible work - the really hard part - of hewing out the rock and getting everything level and right. These are the cheats, those looking for short-cuts into the Kingdom.
The Foundational Work is What Counts Most
Please understand this - getting foundational materials ready is all we, in this ministry, have been doing for the last 30 years! We - and I take responsibility by saying 'I' here - have often rushed ahead trying to build before that foundation was ready. For myself, personally, in my own life, this is my 40th year! I haven't been ready in all that time. And what mistakes have we often made? We have admitted people into this work who were unwilling to do foundation building. They though they could build above the surface and get glory in so doing. Not on your life! All in the Remnant must come in through the same door, all must be built on the true foundation or the work is in vain, a man-made enterprise built on a mixture of flesh and spirit, Assyrian and Israelite, carnal and holy, clay and iron.
When those ancient people, who would become what are today called Samaritans, found themselves rejected, they responded not in repentance but in defiance:
"When the people of the land caused the Judahites to lose heart and made them afraid to continue building; and in order to defeat their purpose they bribed officials at court to act against them. This continued through the reign of Cyrus and into the reign of Darius king of Persia" (vv.4-5, NEB).
In other words, whether you yourself as a compromised persion fighting against the impulses of the flesh which you refuse to crucify, or whether you are actual compromised believers standing in opposition to the real thing, there is going to be opposition. Those who believe, teach and live compromised 'gospels' do not want to be disturbed by emet (truth) and will rise up to cause trouble, hurt and even destroy. There can be no compromise between the Remnant and the 'compromised church' - and if the Remnant, or any part thereof, attempts to do so, it - or that part of it - will be destroyed. This is not going to be an easy ride, whether from the world or from worldly believers.
Know Your Promises
What is interesting in the continuing narrative of events in Ezra is how the exiles needed to 'remind' the political authorities that guaranteed them their freedom to rebuild the temple and city wall to see the promíses through in the face of the deceit of the Assyrian colonists. As believers we have 'rights' but we can only exercise them if we know what they are (the promises made by Yahweh in Scripture) and stand up against the lies of the Enemy. In other words, there is an on-going war which requires diligent application of emet (truth) and spiritual warfare, and it isn't going to let up any time soon. Rather, expect the opposite. But by this means the Remnant will be refined, so that's the good news, even if it's not probably the method you would like used on you. But reality is the business of the day, henceforth and until Messiah returns.
A Difficult But Necessary Choice
There is always that initial 'enthusiasm' of discovering the Remnant and being engaged in establishing spiritual foundations - so many have come to us 'shouting' with simcha (joy) only to 'stop work' (leave us) when the going got tough, because they were frightened or discouraged. There's always a 'honeymoon' period in coming to the fullness of the Besorah (Gospel) but then come the challenges and the tough maturation process. Will you allow those unwilling to sacrifice and be disciplined join the work? If you do, the work is compromised. If you don't, they will oppose and persecute you. So you have to choose one way or the other - there's no third option other than to run scared, as the returned exiles, and stop work altogether. That has happened too. The thing is, to be aware of these things so as not to remain in the dark.
Blasting Your Eyeballs
Alright, we have looked at one or the two issues I must present to you today. We have dealt with the 'Assyrian' believers in our midst (I mean no disrespect to Assyrian Christians who have fled the Syrian civil war - I am speaking metaphorically) but now we have to deal with, in some respects, something even more serious and dangerous. And if you don't know how to cope with it, you will either end up exceedingly frustrated or find yourselves in physical danger. So this is important even if it may seem some of the things I say to you may appear to be 'over the top' or sometimes 'too much to deal with'. I'm sorry, but the times are such that I can no longer cater to the fluffy 'snowflake' mentality which is part of the problem I need to address now. Coming to this ministry is - or ought to be - like leaning over 'Old Faithful', the geyser located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA, which shoots boiling liquid 185 feet or 56 meters high, and metaphorically having your eyeballs blasted through the back of your head by the concentrated emet (truth) about reality which we serve up here.
A Quarter of the Population is Literally Insane
So here goes. At least quarter of the population, or more - and the proportion is growing and will continue to grow - at least 25 per cent of the citizenry in the USA and elswhere is totally and literally insane. I don't mean that in the comical sense, I mean more and more people have become separated from the foundations of empirical reality through the welfare state, through the military-industrial complex, through lobbying, through unemployment insurance or benefit, through various kinds of disability insurance or benefit, through brain-numbing state-sponsored education and the constant spewing of the media.
A Loss of the Sense of Reality
They have become so shielded from accountability, from consequences, from the reality about emet (truth), from impiricism (that kind of knowledge which is based on experience derived from the physical senses), from feedback, from the need to discuss, negociate, from the need to provide value in services. These souls are quite literallly LOST and in a way that I could never have dreamed in my wildest imagination 30 years ago when this work started (we thought it was bad back then!). They have become SOLIPSISTIC and if you don't know what the word means, add it to your vocabulary because you're going to need it!
The Terrifying Rise of Solipsism
Solipsism is the view which says that 'I am the only mind or person that has any objective existence', in order words, it's a more acute form of existentialism, the belief that all truth and reality is based on what you yourself feel, think or experience. As a result, the solipsist can attach no meaning to the notion that there could be thoughts, experiences, and emotions other than his own. In short, the true solipsist understands the word 'pain,' for example, only to mean 'my pain.' He cannot accordingly conceive how this word is to be applied in any sense other than this exclusively egocentric one. He cannot empathise like other people.
Paul Foresaw What Was Coming
Paul prophesied the world would turn out like this, didn't he? Such would, he said, "not believe the truth" (2 Thess 2:12a, NKJV), whether about Besorah (Gospel) emet (truth) or emet (truth) in general and take "pleasure in unrighteousness" (v.12b, NKJV).
The Lost Generation
"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim (God)..." (2 Tim.3:1-4, NKJV).
You know this passage well enough. That generation is arising and it is rising fast. It is a totally lost generation. They have, to quote conservative Canadian philosopher Stefan Molyneux, become "lost to the inter-stellar depths of solopsistic self-reference". They do not have a connection with reality. Worse (for them), the manstream media is the crêche that keeps people separated from reality which is why alternative media is so important, whether you agree with it or not, because it at least forces you to think by examining all views, and not just one. It's why I have spent time, at least for now (though that may stop any time because of encroaching censorship), informing people through social media and encouraging them to pass information on, because knowledge is power - the power to see and deal with reality. And that is why, incidentally, I am passionate about exposing the flat-earth delusion which is a symptom of the bigger psychosis generated by this mindset.
The Bible, History and Philosophy
If you are to grasp reality and help others grasp it without losing your mind, you not only need to know Yah'shua (Jesus), who is the ultimate manifestation in human form of the Ultimate Reality, which is Elohim (God), but you also have to be a bit of an historian and philosopher, who deal with human knowledge (like Science) as opposed to the divine knowledge provided in the Bible. By the way, no philosopher of any repute has ever espoused solopsism for the simple reason that it is irrational and lacks all common sense. Indeed, the only reason we have solopsism in the first place is because of the failure of education, and those pseudo-intellectuals who do embrace it in today's expensive but intellectually moribund colleges of unlearning (especially in the USA) simply display the inconsistency of much of their philosophical reasoning, which is why I do not recommend anyone waste their time, money or life studying liberal arts any more. It's mostly junk Marxist propaganda.
The Fragmentation of Consciousness
Today's solopsism has resulted in no less than the fragmentation of consciousness itself. There is no unity of thought, no overall picture, no grand unified vision like our own Cosmic Principle. People's minds have just become broken, unconnected bits floating around their craniums. This very real concern is what led Christian Philosopher, Ravi Zacharias, to write his book, The End of Reason: A Response to the New Atheists (2008), written nearly ten years ago, which anticipated what was going to happen, and is now happening.
My point is this: YOU CANNOT REASON WITH SOMEONE WHO KNOWS NO REASON OR KNOWS NOT HOW TO REASON. This is the great handicap of this last generation. We have a quarter of humanity who, in spite of the availability of education to them (at least in the West), are to all intents and purposes intellectually illiterate. They just don't know how to think because their minds are so fragmented. That is why I, as an educator, believe so passionately in home education and why I believe true believers have both an obligation and a duty to teach their own children so that they can think for themselves and cope with life. State education will not enable that goal because it has a pernicious agenda. Are we surprised, then, to learn that one of the goals of the élites is to ban home-schooling? They want the population brainwashed, dumbed down and conformed to their political and social agenda. That is why home education has all been wiped out save in the USA and UK.
The Communist Utopia
Just look at today's news and you will see that people have gone insane but now people, who are fed this garbage day in and day out, think of it as 'normal'. And those who don't regard it as normal, are either people like you or me who know that Yah'shua (Jesus) is the only solution or they are putting their money on the repeatedly failed 'communist utopia', naïvely believing that its promoters will 'get it right' the next time round. In reality, this 'utopia' is just Satan's version of Heaven, repackaged to make it more palitable to the ignorant and deceived. And what they don't know is that the people who are pulling the strings in the background, firing up these solopsists, are cynical and murderous and will, as before, exterminate the 'useful idiots' (as Lenin called them) whom they have used as canon fodder to cause riots in the streets and fragment the minds of the uninformed in the colleges. It's a straight choice between Yahweh and Satan now, and it will become the more obviously so as the veils fall.
The Insane are State-Dependent
It is a fact - and you can check it up - that 28 per cent of young women (between the age of 16 and 24) in my country, Great Britain, are now diagnosed as being mentally ill . That's a lot of people! A significant portion of Amererican women in the United States are on antidepressants. There is a mental illness epidemic, fuelled by the state-driven separation from base or foundational empirical reality - the need to give and get feedback, the need to discuss, the need to negociate, the need to provide value in society, and the need simply to talk and discuss. People are lost. They are crazy. Why? Because they are now dependent on the state for their resources and the mainstream media for their ideology. And do you think that they will want to entertain the idea for one moment that they have lost their minds?
The Collapse Will be a Blessing in Disguise
This is one reason why, brethren and sisters, there must be collapse for their sakes - as an act of loving-kindness on Yahweh's part - in order to break the hold the state has on these lost people for their physical needs (their welfare handouts and other 'free stuff') and the mainstream media for their ideology (corporate-sponsored Marxism and nihilism). Honestly, ask yourself this question: how likely are most, if not nearly all, of this lost generation likely to be receptive to the emet (truth) of the Besorah (Gospel) so long as it is hooked up by an umbillical cord to the state for its physical needs and to the media for its atheistic religion? It will be an act of kindness to break that dependency and force them to grapple with reality, however tough and painful it is going to be. And it really is going to be hard for them, because they are mental, emotional and spiritual infants who have never been allowed to grow up.
Living From the Gut
What we have is another universe to them and if you try to feed them directly then you are more than likely, like that Salvation Army missionary the other day, to get shot where you are standing in the street. But you know all of this. You know how most of these people meet pleas to sit down and talk rationally with screaming, violence or just shutting down. And you have doubtless watched Youtube videos of those few who do respond and have seen that they have no idea what they believe or why. They are truly clueless. They live from their gut reactions, not from reason and certainly not from a regenerated heart that loves their fellow man. They have been successfully propagandised. They can love abstract things like 'humanity', which requires no personal commitment or sacrifice, but loving individual people is beyond their ken.
Marxists Old and New
Someone who is empirical, rational, business-like and objective will quickly provoke the solopsist and on occasion cause them to have mental breakdowns. I am sure you have seen the ones who gather on marches to protest President Trump and just scream up at the sky. At least you could have a rational debate with old-fashioned Marxists and on occasion have some respect for them (when they stopped being agressive and violent for a bit). Most of the young avowed communists today have no idea what communism, Marxist or socialism even are. They have simply been piped by the pied pipers of the Deep State to gather and go insane.
Trump Derangement Syndrome and the Dopamine Drip of Delusion
'Trump Derangement Syndrome' is very real. Why? Because, whether you agree with him or not, he is challenging the only 'reality' they know, and as that 'reality' is built on sand, to cause that sand to shift with some hard dollups of truth, triggers a panic switch. You have to give the satanic élites credit for at least being master manipulators and knowing how to use behavioural psychology, however evil, to great effect. The mainstream media had set these kids up, as Molyneux puts it, with a "dopamine drip of delusion" that they're totally addicted to. Remove it and they have withdrawal systems like a drug addict coming cold off drugs, and all they can do is rail against reality until reality finally sinks in. My point is this: you cannot reason with these people, in the vast majority of cases, any more than you can with a drunk and the greatest kindness you can do is deny them their drug and leave them with Yahweh. Otherwise you could be risking your life unnecessarily. There are better and more productive ways to be a martyr.
The Economics of Solopsism
Crazy people don't as a rule accumulate a lot of social resources so they really don't know how to interact with reason or reality when it is presented to them by those they view as 'enemies'. They tend to wander the back alleys and sleep on grates relying on the kindness of strangers. They tend not to accumulate a lot of money and therefore don't have much economic influence in society. That's why it is relatively easy for Soros and his likes to recruit them. But when craziness is engendered (multiplied) and sustained by trillions of dollars of government-appropriated tax-payers' wealth, flowing from the hands of the sane into the hands of the insane, then you are left with a massive amount of economic energy and potential - a massive market of insane people who would otherwise not normally get much of a market at all. When government money creates and sustains insanity - and it's an unpleasant reality that crazy people now have a huge amount of money to spend thanks to the Soros' of this world and the Welfare State...the same place the mainstream media get their money from - then society is in big trouble. That means they become an essential but twisted part of the economy - there is a huge market for the sustaining of delusion now...just consider who profits from it! That is why the whole Deep State scheme is so diabolical but it's also part and parcel of why the system has to collapse which will benefit, hopefully, a lot of the insane and bring them back to sanity as they face the harsh realities of life like the rest who are normal, hard-working folk struggling to better their families and enrich society. In the end, these insane people are just canon fodder. But until they are 'dry' or 'sober' you have to tread very carefully with them.
It should be obvious by now, I hope, that there is no such thing as 'left-wing Christianity' (an oxymoron if ever there was one) except that which is the most lawless and amoral kind. The so-called 'right' ('conservative' would be a better word) represents what? In general (remembering there are always exceptions) they have objective values (inherited from Christianity), they're pro-free market, they like to provide value of one form or another in the market place, and so on, so there is a connection to reality. But don't misunderstand me - I am not necessarily saying you should go and vote 'Republican' (in the USA), 'Conservative' (in the UK), 'Moderatene' (in Sweden), Høyre (in Norway), Christian Democrat (in Germany) etc., because all of these are highly corrupt and deeply infiltrated political parties (I personally wouldn't vote for any of them) - I am speaking only here of values and principles, to commitment, to objectivity and universal values which the Bible promotes. I am not even promoting any kind of capitalism for that matter (I am opposed to unrestrained, unregulated corporate capitalism which is as bad as totalitarian Marxist central planning) but I do absolutely believe in private property and the necessary risks entailed by a free market economy. Today's Left are totally disconnected from reality and to values - they represent the worst of atheistic Marxism. Gone are the days when I could respect principled left-wingers like the late Tony Benn and Dennis Skinner (in the UK) who at least cared - and care - for ordinary people, however wrong their statism might have been or is. Today's Left sit in a moral vaccuum where there is no truth, or almost none, making it very dangerous, the more so as it holds the reins of power in so many countries.
Here's a typical symptom of the modern Left. They say (like good atheists) that there is no such thing as truth but if you contradict them they get insanely angry. That is itself a completely lunatic position to take - if there is no such thing as 'truth', then what is there to be upset about? Likewise they claim there is no such thing as 'race' and yet they demand 'racial quotas' for universities (USA) or in the workplace (like South Africa and Malaysia). If there is no such thing as 'race', how can whites be de facto 'racist'? That's what I mean by insanity. There is no such thing as 'gender', they say, but they talk incessantly about a 'gender pay-gap'. That is a definition of insanity or (to be generous) a very low IQ. The Left claims to protect women yet turns a blind eye when the 'Religion of Peace', their natural violent allies, so terribly abuse women. Did you hear the latest attrocity story out of Malmö here in Sweden in a known 'lawless' area where the police dare not go? Some 'people' (of no official state 'gender', 'race' or 'religion', per pro Left definitions) gang-raped a 17 year-old girl, poured lighter-fluid into her private area and set her on fire. Who knows what, if anything, will happen to these vile people, but we know that many of them well get off scott free, as happened in California and in Germany recently. The Left has no morals, and nor do the honest ones pretend they do. The ends justify the means in their pursuit of the impossible utopia which everyone would hate if they ever realised it.
Weaning Yourself Off the State
So why am I telling you all of this today? I not only want you to be aware of what is going on but to wrap your mind around the idea that society is going to fill with more and more very dangerous, insane people over time, and that this is diabolically planned by the élites. It is Deep State-driven which is itself demon-driven, a Deep State that controls the visible democratically-elected governments who rule us but which are so corrupt that they are blackmailed into doing what the Deep State wants them to do for fear of exposure. Look at all the sex scandal exposés currently happening in Washington and Hollywood. You need to adjust your minds to the reality that you must depend or rely on the state less and less until you have no dependence at all because the alternative is too ghastly to contemplate.
The Redemptive Collapse and Ending State Dependency
You need also to understand that financial collapse, however painful, will be redemptive for a lot of currently 'insane' people who will be forced to confront reality, or else become total slaves to the neo-feudal state. The choices people are going to have to make are going to be huge, often with eternal, and always with life-long, consequences. You need to know who to witness to, when and where. You can no longer assume the state will protect you. It is not your friend and guardian as once it might have been. You need to become self-reliant in the practical sense and totally dependent on Yahweh in the spiritual (and by extension, practical) sense too. Don't rely on human saviours, and particularly not political, bureaucratic or legal ones. You won't survive otherwise.
A Needed Message
I feel very strongly I am to give you this message at this time. Above all, prepare your children because they are the ones who are going to inherit a world far more insane and unsafe than the one we live in now. They will need all their wits about them, they will need Yahweh to survive whereas we might have been tempted to do without Him in certain areas and simply drift along because we didn't feel immediately threatened. They won't have that luxury and if they fall for that temptation, it could well destroy them. At some point it probably won't be safe or wise to even have children, just as it wasn't at one time in Paul's time when he advised young folks to stay single and not try to raise families because of the impossibility of having a stable family life during persecution. That time will come again, for sure during the last 3½ years of the Great Tribulation but also more than likely before that too.
Reaching the Lost Generation
How can we reach the ever increasing numbers of brainwashed, solopsistic youngsters who will grow up into the last generation of adults to be my age? Education takes time but where reason is absent, all that is left to you is power foremost of which, of course, is ahavah (love). And these youngsters are absolutely starved of it - they don't even know what it is because they have likely never been exposed to it.
A New Kind of Deliverance...Perhaps
A whole new kind of deliverance ministry is going to be required making what we have done seem antiquated. You are going to have to deal with human-machine combinations - transhumanism. The demon-steered élites have already told us what they intend to accomplish, if they can, and if you have seen the movie, Synchronism (2017), you will perhaps know what I mean.
Super-Humans and Demons
Yet high tech is in reality just an extra layer of intelligence disconnected from the heart and from authentic chayim (life), which means there is no such thing as a human-machine hybrid that is even more 'human' than we are. We can only be dehumanised and be opened to the kinds of temptations the malakim (angels) were. This means that any new layer of electronic intellegence must be controlled, to a certain extent, by demons, for it to work.
So the core principles of deliverance will remain the same even in this frightening new world-to-come scenario of man-machines. And the fact that the manifestatation of greater power will be needed to meet and combat them doesn't meen it won't be allowed, for Yahweh will not permit us to be overwhelmed if we have the emunah (faith) to receive that power when it's needed.
Yahweh Remains the Same
Who, in any case, is Yahweh-Elohim? The emet (truth) remains the same, whether it is expressed in the language and metaphor of a non-technical people centuries or millennia ago (as we find in the Bible), or otherwise:
All Creatures are Subject to Yashweh
"It is He who made the earth by His power,
who established the world by His wisdom,
and by His understanding stretched out the heavens.
When He utters His voice,
there is a tumult of waters in the heavens,
and He makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth.
He makes lightnings for the rain,
and He brings out the wind from His storehouses.
Everyone is stupid and without knowledge;
goldsmiths are all put to shame by their idols;
for their images are false,
and there is no breath in them"
That goes for robots and magnetically-propelled UFO-type vehicles that can apparently do amazing feats in the sky, the tech of nefilim and of various fallen creatures, natural and supernatural, whose 'breath' or 'life' comes from Yahweh. They are not 'gods', though vainly they might believe they are, and are yet subject to the will and power of the Almighty, the same power that Yahweh bequeathes to His faithful servants to deal with them when they interfere with His plans. The fact that the technology of evil is being taken to its next and final level does not make it more daunting than before when the Creator and His powers are duely and rightly considered. For He is that stone which no man can resist, and has declared what He will do to the powers that resist Him:
"[The] image's head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth" (Dan.2:32-35, NKJV).
And who is Israel today? All those who accept, trust and obey the King of Israel, Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), and obey His torot (laws). That is what makes us His own special possession and nothing else - not flesh-and-blood, not man-made nations, but true believers who trust and obey the Son. Amen.
"...the Elohim (God) of Israel...is the Creator of everything that exists, including Israel, His own special possession. Yahweh-Elohim is His Name!" (Jer.10:10, NLT).
