Probably one of my most often recited quotes is “The one thing we learn from history, is that we never learn from history.” Probably because it’s one of the blatant truths of our time, and has never been as obvious – to those who discern the signs of the times, that is. The rest just fall into the same old trap as usual.

People who believe that the Muslims or Islam are the big culprit of our times are just as deaf, dumb and blind as those who believed Roman emperor Nero’s hogwash about the Christians having put fire to Rome, or Hitler’s hype against the Jews. They’re going to find out the long and hard way that the true enemy wasn’t the Muslims, after all, just as the Jews weren’t of the Germans, nor the Christians were, of the Romans, but rather, their own stupidity and lack of discernment when it came to the degree of corruption and evil within their own leadership.

One of the few Christians who didn’t fall for the “Jews are evil” mantra during the 3rd Reich was Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was imprisoned for his alliance with the Resistance, and before his execution wrote in prison: “Stupidity is actually a more dangerous enemy of good than downright evil.”
He must have known what he was talking about. He must have seen it all around him. All those idiots falling for the lies and atrocious distortions and violations of truth and all that is right by that madman at the helm and his croonies, sort of the way a substantial part of people who maintained their ability to think clearly have been feeling about the Bush administration…

And again, never has a statement been proven so obviously true as the above cited Bonhoeffer quote has, in our present times. Never before has there been as large a group of dumb people who thought themselves to be so smart. You don’t have to take my word for it. Just read this article about the “smug generation” of our children – the ones who, with a little bit of bad luck, are very likely to hail the antichrist as the new “Fuehrer” of us all…

But just as parents can often be totally blind to any faults and weaknesses of their own children (“My child doesn’t lie, steal, cheat…” etc.), so it seems that same type of people can also be absolutely blind to their own leader’s faults or crimes, the error of the ways their whole nation may be taking, and in fact, to any fault or blame on the behalf of anything that is “their own,” period.
There’s never anything wrong with their own side, their own religion, their own opinion, always with the other. How immature. What a bunch of kids we are!
How far away we’ve strayed from the teachings of the One we as Christians call our Leader, about loving our enemies, not rendering evil for evil, doing good to them that hate us and loving the least of His brethren…

And yet, just because we have “advanced” to the pinnacle of evolution, as the remote controls and steering wheels in our hands doubtlessly prove, we think we really are smarter than any one else who ever lived before…

Since, according to the Bible, things in this present world have been promised to become worse all the time (contrary to the theory of evolution), I can hardly imagine what kind of a shock it’s going to take this time around to wake people up… But then again, some people never woke up after the shock of the skeletons in the closet of the 3rd Reich being revealed, either…
And the blind guides of the blind are still humming the same old tunes as ever… “Sleep on, sleep on…”

This week the world will know whether America has made any serious progress in overcoming its racism or not, and whether the first black man will take the helm of that country, or yet another warmonger who just can’t wait to “Bomb, bomb, bomb; bomb bomb Iran.”

In the meantime, the arquitects of the New World Order seem to be getting set for their final stage by feriociously strangling the remainder of the economy to death, distributing the people’s money to their own cohorts, like J.P.Morgan’s bank, (who has been in on the plot since the beginning of the 20th century) who are already boasting that they will use the money to buy off the rest of the few little independent banks that remain. Hallelujah!

It can’t be long now before the situation is going to be so desperate that the world will readily receive a superman to pull them out of this mess, be he god or devil, even if he’s going to replace their beloved cash with a cashless monetary system that will require them to take a chip under their skin instead. No more economic crises, no more tumbling currencies, but no more freedom, either, but total control and enslavement. Welcome to the dawn of the New World Order.

Of course, Christians around the world deem themselves safe, since most of them believe that Jesus is going to pick them up out of this mess before it even starts, even though He Himself explicitly said that He wouldn’t do that, but that He would only return afterwards. And it’s not that I want to argue about it, it’s just that I want to prepare any reader for what’s coming, whether they want to believe it or not. It’s a matter of what is truth, and what is not, and – contrary to many of my contemporaries, I don’t share the politically correct worldview that truth is merely a matter of personal opinion. That worldview is probably solely responsible for the mess we’re in; the fulfillment of Satan’s promise to man: “Ye shall be as gods.” What is a “god” but an arquitect of his own, private “truth?” Welcome to earth! Home to 7 billion freely walking, talking, roamning and shooting “deities!”

Nor do I wish to argue about whether Babylon the harlot of Revelation 17 and 18 is only a spiritual entity or an actual, physical place that can be “burned with fire in one hour” seen and bewailed and mourned by the merchants and seafaring folk of the earth. I just want to help prepare people for what I believe is going to happen, since other prophets (though far outnumbered by the popular preachers of peace and plenty forever) are sharing the belief in that truth (though, arguably it remains to be seen whether we’re right about that one or not. Nevertheless, that’s not the issue, but that people ought to brace themselves for the worst. If it won’t happen… hallelujah!).
Maybe it’s a coincidence, maybe not, that there’s a town called Babylon in N.Y. state, but I have a notion that whoever named that place was on the right track concerning their neighborhood.

It’s also not a matter of arguing that I want to re-emphasize that I believe what Jesus has said remains truth forever, and that “He who believes in Him has eternal life,” (John 3:36 and an oddle of other Scritptures), a gift that cannot be taken away from anyone who is saved, contrary to a growing number of sincere believers who wish to argue that “Hell’s Best Kept Secret” is the fact that you can lose your Salvation any old time you sin again. What kind of a salvation or gift would that be, if it’s going to be taken away from us again every time we sin? That would mean – in most cases, like a couple times a day? Are you kidding? Are you really serious?

It’s like tossing a drowning man a life saver and asking him, “But do you really deserve this?” And after he says, “Yes,” with his last, desperate dying breath you pull him into the boat, but as soon as he does something wrong, you toss him back into the water, saying, “No, you don’t deserve it after all, that I saved you!”
Jesus said, if we, being evil, know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will the Father give us, His children, good gifts. Likewise, if we know how to treat our fellow humans decently, isn’t He going to do the same? If we can save our fellowmen from fires, from drowning or other disasters, isn’t God going to save us for real, too, instead of playing a cruel, torturous game of “now I save you, now I don’t” with us?
Wake up, people! Your own goodness can never save you! That’s the religion of Cain and of the Pharisees. That’s not a matter of arguing, it’s just a matter of speaking up against a wicked lie that preachers tell you just to make sure you’re coming back next Sunday morning, and be assured, they’re being paid lots of money for it, by the same people whose goal it is to replace your shakey faith in a not-so-saving God with the worship of their new head honcho coming up, a messiah that won’t be rejected, because he’s going to bring them tangible salvation from starvation on a silver platter. Well, on a silver micro chip, to be exact.

Whether he’s really going to be all that great and wonderful will only turn out after seven years, the latter half of which are not exactly going to be a piece of cake for those who will reject that beastly solution to the world’s problems. And if you seriously plan on making it through there somehow, you’d better make sure you’ve got true faith in a God that’s truly capable of saving you from your sins, not just “providing you stay a good boy or girl,” and capable of saving and keeping you through any mess for that matter, even the Great Tribulation.
