What happens when all that remains
of the world is.....
Fear,
Distrust, and
Desperation?

Isaiah 8:21 And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

"HOPE AND CHANGE" SAID THE MAN

But, instead all Americans are being accused of being "potential terrorists." The Federal Government has purchased 3 billion rounds of hollow point ammo. The ONLY use of that is to kill Americans. That kind of ammo is absolutely illegal outside the USA according to the Geneva Conventions of War. This is because hollow points do not allow the victim to be treated and recover. They blow a hole the size of dinner plate out of the victim.

Illegal immigrants are being turned loose allegedly because of budget cuts. Soon, prisoners will be turned loosed from Federal Penitentiaries because, "Those Republicans will not let me print more money."

Now, what is your response to the above and many more tyrannical actions by the US Government against the citizens? Indeed, you who read here from outside the USA very likely feel the sting of tyranny in your government. The leaders of the world have formed a club designed to help one another suppress all world citizens.

I am convinced, based on my experience all my life living in Africa, and because of my thirst for history, that the US Government is now trying to drive Americans to the historic destination at which a whole nation and society will collapse and become totally submissive to tyrants.

That is, we are being driven to FEAR, DISTRUST, AND DESPERATION. The vast majority of people in the world are gradually reducing the topics they will discuss freely on social media. Next, they will do this in the market place, person to person, and there will be nothing left to talk about except football and soccer. In fact, people are going silent all over the world.

There is a test for this. When is the last time you heard someone whistling or singing to themselves as they worked? One of the things that goes away first under tyranny is whistling and singing. This is because spontaneous comment, and any noise, is possibly dangerous. Someone is listening.

Do you disagree? Well, try an experiment. Start whistling Deuchland, Deuchland, Lieber Alles in a crowd in France, and see what happens. You folks in Germany, start whistling La Marseillaise. Ha! Someone will scold you at once. You people in Boston, start whistling I Wish I Were in Dixie, and see what happens. Fifty years ago, someone might tease you, or frown at the most, but today you might very well be told by some mental slave of the New World Order, "It is not appropriate to whistle that."

In other words, silence is the objective of the Hidden Hand. But then, the irony is, the Hidden Hand is also suspicious when you go silent. They then listen harder and try to hack more of your privacy. "Why is he not talking anymore? He may be psycho and could become a potential terrorist. He must have a secret we need to know."

So, the only safe thing to do now is what we did when we lived in Ethiopia. When we made a phone call, if the person on the other end had to be called to the phone, while we waited for them to come to the phone we had to keep talking nonsense, or the operator would think the line had gone dead, and she would use it for another caller. Keep chattering nonsense, or you will be suspect of evil.

The cattle are lowing,
The slobs are content;
Their mind is in neutral,
All empty and bent.

They chat about fashion,
They say Rosaries;
The season is jolly,
And pass the salt please.

Blah, Blah, Blah, and you are look so cool in your Duck Dynasty sweat suit.

 

WHERE IS GOD WHEN EVIL MEN CONFRONT US?

When my wife and I were missionaries in Ethiopia in the 1970s, that nation experienced a Marxist coup. For three days after the coup, everyone was asking friends and strangers who was in charge. People wanted to know if life would get better or worse.

Finally, the news hit the street by the Ethiopian grapevine, which is unlike American gossip. The Ethiopians are well known for passing on oral news exactly as they heard it without embellishment. The new government was lead by a rabid Marxist Colonel, and he was already slaughtering government officials and business men.

Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, went dead silent. No one talked to other people anywhere. The Ethiopian people love to chat and pass on news, but it was all gone. The people were in white hot terror. I took a taxi to do government business I had, and the taxi was, as usual, packed with passengers. One by one, the passengers got out. Finally, I was alone with the driver. As the door slammed, the driver at once said, "Heile Salassie yishallal." "Emperor Heile Salassie was better." The driver was an Eritrean, and this was a province of Ethiopia which really wanted to be free from Ethiopia, so the driver, in the past, would have resented Heile Salassie. When he said the Emperor was better than the coup government, that was a significant statement. And, he must have thought he was safe saying that to an American.

You see, back in the 1970s many people in the world respected the freedoms in America. Suffering people around the world thought America was a land of sympathy to those who suffer. Today, other nations are in terror of the Great American Bully.

And, it is the same at home. We have almost no area of American life where Big Bully Government is not bullying us. This is the hallmark of a tyranny. They bully and badger the masses until all the people are whipped.

Again, FEAR, DISTRUST, AND DESPERATION rule in America. We all go on social media knowing some creep in NSA may be peeking over our shoulder trying to work himself into a state where he feels free to flag our file as, "potential terrorist." And, down the road, what will these demented people do with "potential terrorists?" We may never know until one morning we go to work and learn that Bill was hauled off in the middle of the night. This is the Stalinist method, and Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their mob cut their teeth on Communism. And, if the next President happens to be a Republican, he will continue the snooping or be shot.

What a terrible picture, and some readers have already clicked out of this article. We do not like to be reminded we live in a police state. It is more comfortable to avoid facing it, so we go play bubbles on the Internet or do an online jigsaw puzzle.

 

 

HOW SHALL WE THEN LIVE?

How do we deal with such a world of chaos and Big Nanny government? How do we deal with all the profane and filthy coworkers around us? How do we deal with the assault by the media and the Internet on our mind?

I want you to consider Jesus' instruction to his disciples.

Matthew 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

This is part of what is called, "The sermon on the Mount." This is the sermon which President Barak Obama mocked at a gathering of US officials long ago. The US Military hates this teaching. The Sermon on The Mount is the most exalted sermon by pious literary gurus today, and it is the least practiced. So, do YOU hate it, or at least refuse to let it settle into your soul as the Christian standard?'

Do you remember when President Jimmy Carter persuaded Menachem Begin of Israel, and Anwar Sadat of Egypt, to come to Camp David for peace talks. They came, and they signed a peace agreement that lasted until President Barak Obama destroyed the peace of Egypt with his Islamic Brotherhood goons. You conservatives probably have never given Carter credit for making peace. Tell me, have the Presidents since Carter been known as peace makers?

You see, people do not remember peace makers. That is because people love war and rage more than peace. These are the End Times, and "wars and rumors of wars" have obliterated the Sermon on the Mount. If you could find a way to prove that Jesus said, "Hate your brother, and make war on anyone you like," you would be exalted by the masses and all the world leaders today.

In Verse 41 we get to the real point of Jesus' teaching here. Back in the day of Christ on earth, the Romans ruled with an iron fist. When a Roman soldier went from place to place he walked on well maintained roads. The custom for Roman soldiers was to demand someone standing nearby to carry his load of personal effects for a mile. At that point, the soldier would let the victim go, and he would turn to someone else standing there and demand he carry the load the next mile.

Jesus told his followers to carry the load the second mile voluntarily. Why?

The first mile the victim was a subject no better than a slave. The second mile the victim suddenly became in charge of his destiny, he silently let the soldier know that he lived above hate and slavery, and finally, if there were any chance to give the Gospel to the soldier, it would be during that second mile when the soldier asked, "Why do you want to carry my load another mile?" For doing that extra mile cheerfully, the victim had the advantage on the soldier, and the soldier almost had to listen to the Gospel.

You see, nothing that comes to you is unknown to God. Even better, everything that comes to you, including the NSA spying on your personal life, is arranged by God for some good purpose.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Verse 28 promises that God is working good things in all that happens to you if you are a born again Bible believer. But even better, Verse 30 tells us that we are predestined to glory, and Verse 31 then goes on to state that no one can be against us. That may sound absurd when we consider that the US Government is against us, we live in what Muslims call The Great Satan nation, and people around us are now telling us to keep our religion to ourselves.

Get this straight saint.....

Anyone who is against you is against God. Thus, who wins? Answer: God, every time. What evil men imagine they can do to threaten or harm you is being taken into consideration in the throne room of Heaven, and a plan of action, no, a plan of ATTACK is under way by your God and Jesus Christ. What the wicked imagine they will do to you, God will arrange to glorify him in the end, and you will get to see the end of it one day.

A young woman was arrested long ago in Communist China for being a Christian. She freely owned Christ as her Savior when interrogated, and she was sentenced to death by beheading. The officials took her to be beheaded in a public place, and a solemn speech was in progress about her rebellion against the glory of Communism.

The young lady began to laugh. The Communist official was enraged. "How dare you laugh at such a serious time when you are about to die? You are mocking at the Communist state." The young lady said, "Oh no, I am sorry. I did not mean to mock at the state. I just had a vision, and I saw myself being beheaded, and my head was rolling down the hill. Then, I saw my new body I will receive in heaven. I am not a very pretty girl, and my face is quite ugly. When I saw my new face, and how pretty it will be, I just had to laugh at my old ugly head and face."

The Communist official at once said, "Let her go. Can't you see she is mad?"

In the words of Joseph before his terrified brothers in Egypt-- his brothers who sold him into slavery, Genesis 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

So, as America, and a hundred other nations on this earth, pass into tyranny and chaos at the hands of evil leaders, we Children of the heavenly Father are told by our Lord that he is doing good things, even in our hour of suffering and torment at the hands of evil men.

 

 

 

SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON FEAR

Let us look at some Bible texts on fear and how to handle it:

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Power to either resist of endure what we fear.
Love, which is the opposite of fear and turns our enemies into objects of the love of God in us.
A sound mind which helps us find ways to either avoid or confront the enemy.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

If you have no Word of God in your memory, pity you. The best answers to give the wicked when they torment us is the Word of God. They hate it, but they cannot resist it because it is the power of God.

Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

By trusting in the Lord we have a view of him and his safety which totally distracts us from the fear being peddled by the wicked. The world, especially the Internet, is thick with stories of conspiracy and terror which is supposed to be just around the corner. We may either stare down the road into the dark breathlessly waiting for the hydre headed monster and the bete noire, or we may look into the face of our Savior. It is not possible to do both. Which have YOU chosen?

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Lean not. Your understanding, like mine, with loads of research and information from impeccable sources, is totally unreliable. To be informed of real facts, like a tornado is coming, is very useful. But, to be informed of things that MIGHT happen, is worthless rubbish. The understanding that comes from above, from Christ, is the only thing you and I can really LEAN on. Go back up, and read 2 Timothy 1:7 again.

Jeremiah 2:25 Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.

Do you have shoes for your feet? Do you have water to drink when you thirst? Yes?

So, why are you running after strangers like Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones, men who have no use for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Do these men feed your soul? Do they have the words of peace?

Strangers? Are these creeps your friends? You are a fool if you think they will stay with you through the real time of sorrow to come. They will have sold their gold, and they will have sold you the barley green and survival kit, and they will flee to the Bahamas to their hide away. And will they call you to them for safety?

Chase strangers, my friend, and you will receive the Dead Skunk in The Middle of The Road award instead of hearing, "Well done, my son, enter into the joy of thy Lord."

Jeremiah 18:12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

So, you will do what you have decided is the best preparedness scheme, right? There were some folks even long before Jeremiah's day who followed very faithfully after their own imaginations. They were the neighbors of brother Noah.

Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Back up to 2 Timothy 1:7- God gives us a new heart, but he also gives us a new mind, and he expects us to follow that mind of Christ.

 

2 Corinthians 4:8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

You are dying-- get used to it. You do not have to like the thought of dying, but that is the end of all men since Adam took a nip out of the fruit in Eden. The whole point of the Christian faith is this-- death works in all men, but in the believer in Jesus Christ life is working also, and that is eternal life.

So, stepping through the door of death, whether being snuffed by FEMA in one of their camps, or by having a stroke and falling down dead in WalMart, LIFE GOES ON if you are a Bible believer. That is the way with eternal life. Death stops physical life, but Life in Christ never stops. So, in the life you now live, can anyone figure out that Jesus Christ is the giver of life by watching how you live your life? Or, do they only hear words of anger and mild panic?

Psalms 42:1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Was this a Psalm of David? It sure sounds like a miserable father who has fled from his throne and from his rebel son Absalom who wanted to kill him. Can it get any worse?

So, what does the Psalmist say in Verse 8?

God gives us his lovingkindness in the daytime, and he gives us songs in the night.

 

Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Ethel Waters grew up in the ghetto of Philadelphia midst whore houses and drug dealers. She said that God made sure she was never violated of trapped in the evil of it. Later, she sang for Hollywood movies and the night clubs. But, the faith her mother gave her never died completely. Her testimony in this video is for real. Personal friends of our cared for Ethel in their own home during her dying days, and she never lost hope in her Savior.

 

GOD LEADS HIS DEAR CHILDREN ALONG

 

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

 

 

PERSONAL FROM STEVE:

I really needed to do this article friend. If anyone has a problem with fear of the wicked and resentment toward tyranny, it is I.

I just hope you were helped as I wrote this article to me.

If you get to the throne room of my Savior before me, save me a spot near Jesus please.
