The Great Delusion Revisited – Steaming Towards The End Times

As the continuing saga of the so-called pandemic rages on, one question has come up on more than one occasion. Is this the “great delusion”? There are a couple of places in scripture where such is alluded to. The first place is in 2 Thessalonians

2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

As always the context should be considered.

2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

As I read this verse 11, the question comes to mind. Whom does the term “them” refer to?

Verse 10 says “…them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

Now reading from the top, the first two verses say.

2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Keep in mind paragraphs as such are all added by men. They carry no Godly authority at all. So if you were to read these two verses as one:

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand

Now it is clear the author is moving from the “coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him” to the day of Christ (kurios – Lord, not christos – Christ)

Let us consider where it says “the day of Christ is at hand”. Here is where the inherent accuracy of God’s Word shines. The word “Christ” in this verse is the Greek word “kurios”. It NOT “christos” that is typically rendered “Christ” as in “Jesus Christ”. Rather, the word “kurios” is usually rendered “lord”. Thus verse 2 should read “the day of the Lord is at hand”. Why bother with just one word? This word – kurios – tells is the topic is a specific period of time in prophecy and scripture. It also tells us what the following verses pertain to.


Now consider 2 Thessalonians 2:3

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

This is where things get interesting. Note the term “falling away” is the Greek word “apostasia”, rendered in English “apostasy”.


The Greek word “Apostasia” is a compound of two Greek words: “Apo” = “to move away”, “stasis” means “standing or state”, or “to stand”.

Literally, from its basic definition, “apostasia” means “to go away from”, or “depart”, or “change state or standing from one state to another”.

Another common interpretation is “a falling away”, a “defection” (Theyer’s and Strongs) or a “revolt” (NAS Exhaustive Concordance). These suggest a basic turning away from the True Word of God. Well, we’ve certainly seen plenty of that already. Let’s not forget the second part of this verse.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 …and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Wait! There’s more!

2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Two separate events are referred to here – this “falling away”, apostasy, and “that man of sin will be revealed”. There is not much detail about this apostasy. Whether one takes it as a “revolt” or a general turning away from God or a “departure” as in the rapture, it does not matter here. The more crucial question we are seeking an answer to is “what about this “strong delusion” in verse 11? We are getting there.

Now… about that delusion. From the scriptures laid out on this page, I think it is safe to say the “strong delusion” in verse 11 of 2 Thessalonians pertains to the events surrounding this “man of perdition”.

2 Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

It is those who reject Christ who will be received.

In the gospels, Jesus is recorded in both Matthew 24 and Mark 13 speaking of many being deceived. The text of Matthew 24 is below. Mark is quite similar, but by all means, look it up for yourself.

Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

In verses 4 and 5

Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

In verse six, he indicates the when…

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

He states this in answer to the question about when shall be signs of the end.

Now consider whom Jesus is speaking directly to – his disciples. His disciples were Hebrews – Jews. His ministry was entirely to the nation of Israel. Note this distinction made in the epistle to the Corinthians.

1 Corinthians 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:

Three separate groups are identified here: Jews, Gentiles and the church of God. While this is not definitive, this passage certainly indicates “the church of God” as a unique group. What separates us? The new birth, as it was not available until Pentecost.

Since Jesus would not have been speaking to the church of God, aka, the body of Christ, it follows that these things do not pertain directly to those of us Christians living in this age of grace. Thus, the “elect” he speaks of must be Israelites in the end times.

Even for those who might take exception to my logic here, the deception spoken of by Jesus is quite specific. Those who are deceived are not “the elect” and they are being deceived by false prophets and false Christs who show great signs and wonders.

While there are rumblings about false messiahs in the past few years – some held up Barrack Obama as a “messiah” and more recently, some are promoting the idea of praying to Anthony Fauci. While I certainly agree that Fauci should indeed be counted as a false prophet and the idea of BO as a messiah-type is as abominable as one can get, I don’t think we are quite at the point Jesus was speaking of.

The bottom line is, while this virus pandemic is certainly a grand deception, we have not yet entered into the end times. How much longer? I don’t know. From what I can ascertain, the world will move into that period soon after the rapture takes place. Some do not believe there will be a rapture, however my studies over the years indicates that it will indeed occur. Is this wishful thinking? I do not believe so. For one thing, I do not care one way or another. While I yearn to depart and be with my Lord, forging through tribulation times holds a certain appeal of adventure and excitement. Much like war, I am certain the realities of those times will be far more difficult that one’s glorious visions.

In any case, my hope is to live long enough to see Jesus coming and meeting him in the air. While the world seems to be preparing for this to happen, who knows how long it will take?

Long ago, I had a friend who did not believe. His retort was always “What if you’re wrong?”. My response was always along the lines of “I’d rather be wrong being for God than against Him.” Of course the one thing I could not explain to my friend was I just knew I wasn’t wrong! Such knowledge can only come from being born again of the spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

If you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior then I strongly suggest you do so now. Time grows shorter every day. One of the major reasons I believe in the rapture is through a careful study of Revelation. Reading that, it becomes clear those living in that period are not under grace. This glorious age where anyone can be born again by confessing Jesus as Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead will end. While it will still be possible to be accepted by God, I cannot say how this will happen. What I can say is right now, as of this writing, the words of the Apostle Paul stand clear:

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

1 Thessalonians 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

Christians were never promised to be free of tribulation.

Romans 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

However “The Great Tribulation” (caps mine, no divine authority) as indicated in the end times is something altogether different. It is the final wake up call for those who reject God, who refuse to believe no matter what. What possible reason would there be for a loving God to subject His children to the horrors detailed in scripture. I can think of only one – we are needed to help those who are will to change their minds. As far as I’m concerned, if this is what God wants for me, I’m in. For the time being I’m happy enough to encourage anyone reading this to accept Jesus as Lord now. Accept deliverance from the wrath to come.

Where is the REAL Covid-19 Vaccine?

A few days ago, Joe Biden declared war on the unvaccinated, saying he was “losing patience” with those who refused to become vaccinated and set forth a six-point plan, mandating vaccines for nearly one-third of Americans. Towards the end of his scolding diatribe, he asked “What more do you need to know?”

Actually I have a list of questions but for the sake of this article, I’ll limit myself to just one:

Where is the real covid-19 vaccine?

But, but there are several vaccines available! One might say. Actually no, there are not. I will not argue this point here, but the jabs the controllers are so desperate to stab us all with – multiple times, I might add – are all based on the same mRNA experimental technology. Experimental because this technology has not been tested on humans, until now. Again, my goal here is not to expound on mRNA, the jab or the issues and problems surrounding it. There is something else nagging away at me.

Years ago, I don’t know how many, I saw a segment about flu vaccines and how they were developed. I believe I saw this about the time of the Swine flu scare, if you need a time reference. As my memory tends to be selective, I did a bit of research. I found a 2016 article in Scientific American confirming what I remembered about the segment. If you don’t want to read the article, short as it is, I’ll summarize below.

Basically, every year, scientists peruse the new strains of flu found since the last vaccine. After determining what strains comprise the biggest threat, they develop a vaccine comprised of dead viruses from the most dangerous types. Thus, every year they introduce the annual “flu shot” or vaccine. Every. Year.

Remember back when then President Trump announced a crash program to develop a vaccine for Covid or the Wuhan Flu or the China Virus? Call it what you will. The experts said “impossible!”  “It can’t be done!” “It would take years!” Oh. Really? Why not? They develop a vaccine for the flu every year. What is so different this time? But there’s more…

After over a year of panic, shutdowns, mandated masks, etc. the CDC finally admits at least some of the approved tests for Covid cannot distinguish between Covid and the flu. Huh. This says all the statistics rolled out since the beginning of the Covid scamdemic are wrong. The number of incidents are wrong. The death toll is wrong. Everything. We do not know how bad it really was or is. What we can ascertain is, even at Covid’s worst, it wasn’t nearly as deadly as the propagandists would like us to believe.

And yet they continue to spread the fear. They cannot stop from inciting panic. What else?

They continue to push for everyone to get this mRNA jab. Why? Their logic is non-existent. So much so they cannot even put forth a coherent argument for their case. And then there’s the flu vaccine technology – tested, tried, and proven – even for humans. So where is a REAL vaccine comprised of little dead Corona viruses so it is can truthfully deemed as safe and effective as other flu vaccines?

You tell me.

The Plan of Afghanistan

First things first: raise your hand if you REALLY think Slo Mo Joe is actually running the country. YOU! In the back! You are excused.

Second thing: Who amongst us really believe TPTB had no clue this would happen? Excused.(Note: Lara Logan speaks quite succinctly and authoritatively on this. My jaw dropped when she essentially confirmed my own assessment because while I was shooting from the hip – she’s displayed some very detailed knowledge on the topic.)

Pair these two ideas together and what are we left with? Joe’s time is shorter than we know. I expected them to try to hang on to this ruse until they could assure cameltoe 10 years – one day in office. Something’s happened to move the schedule up.

One comment I heard last night chilled me to the bone. The exact phrasing escapes me but he as he listed the devastation Joe has already wreaked on the nation, it dawned on me how this Afghanistan debacle could literally tear our nation and the sitting government apart. To what end? To the end of installing a new government unbridled by a constitution.

I understand this seems farfetched, bluntly put, I hope I am absolutely wrong on this. However, I feel strongly enough about it to bring it up as a warning. What could we possibly do should things go this way? Not much really, especially those who have spent years preparing for when TSHTF.

Everything that has happened since the pResident’s coronation suggests an intent to destroy our nation, from the opening of our Southern border to a flood of illegal aliens, to the unprecedented out-of-control spending, to the piece by piece dismantling of our constitutional republic, the clear goal of TPTB is to bring our nation to its knees and lop off the head.

Could this be the final foray? Time will tell.

Answer to a Constitutional Naysayer

This post is in response to a comment on a blog.  Essentially he said, among other things, “Boomers are always going, “muh Constitution, muh Constitution”. But that old doc has been abrogated piecemeal to where it hardly matters”. My response follows:

Those like yourself are part of the problem – boomers or otherwise. You are ignorant of our constitution and of our republic. Per your reference to “boomers”, I ascertain you belong to a subsequent generation. Therefore I do not have the background to grasp the scope of your ignorance. Thus I will relate the ignorance of my boomer generation.

Before I get into what we were not taught, we were taught American history among other things. I say this because I have a daughter, in high school, who cannot even say what Pearl Harbor or D-Day was, much less their significance. We were taught we live in a free country, a democracy based on a two-party system. We were taught that, as responsible citizens, it is our duty to vote.

What we (I personally, but I’ve seen evidence of this being wide-spread) were NOT taught: the difference between a constitutional republic and a democracy, our freedoms are immutable, our responsibility and duty as citizens are far more extensive than mere voting – we are to hold our representatives (not our “leaders”) responsible for everything they do in office, every dime they spend, the so-called “two-party system” is a scam devised to allow the controllers to seize the machinery of the representative process. Along with volumes more.

You are almost exactly correct when you say this has slipped away. Almost I say because the law of the land has not really “slipped” away, it was usurped. Here’s how:

Our public school system has indoctrinated citizens for 100 years, give or take. Search for John Dewey + Karl Marx. The income tax and the Federal Reserve enslaves us financially. FDR instituted (in more ways than one) Social Security – one of the most ingrained socialist programs ever to be initiated. All of this and more occurred while we and our parents and grandparents and their parents and grandparents stood idly by. With programs and institutions such as the above, our rights and freedoms have shrunk as these have expanded.

My generation looks back on a much more stable nation, yet we grew up in the 60’s where protests, bombings and riots were part of the landscape. Even so, those times are nothing like we see today. One can literally say things have gotten progressively worse.

Is there a solution? Certainly. However with every day that passes, I become more and more skeptical of such a solution taking hold. It would take WE the People – the citizens of this nation – to stand up and demand a return to a limited government, a constitutional republic. It would not happen overnight. Even a flesh wound takes time to heal, our nation requires several major surgeries. As a Christian, I no longer see this happening without divine intervention from God Almighty.

Strangely enough, the article Ken linked to was written by Richard Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government. I never heard of him before today, but I suspect we have a similar perspective. I detect more than a little cynicism in your rant. I cannot blame you. My own cynicism has morphed into something more like reluctant acceptance. I have not given up. I will never give up, even if our constitution is formally declared null and void. Why? Because, ultimately my rights stem, not from the document founding our republic, but from God Almighty. They are indeed immutable and I will defend them to my last breath.

Will Our Nation Be Restored?

This has been the question on my mind in my daily prayers… more or less. Meaning, I cannot say I’ve raised this question every day. That said, I’ve long held our nation is at a crossroads. Yeah, I know it’s not a stretch. I never claimed to be a prophet, only an observer who sometimes extrapolates what I see. This crossroads, as I see it branches three ways. One is utter destruction as our nation collapses within itself. This is what the controllers are vying for. Another is an internal war. Again, the controllers would be fine with this as they see the end result would be the same… or nearly so. Finally there is restoration. This would be an act of God Almighty. My ideal would see our nation not only restored to a constitutional republic but to the republic as it was always meant to be. Thus WE the PEOPLE would step up and do our part as proper citizens, holding those we elect to represent us accountable. Bluntly put, I doubt if I would ever see my ideal come to fruition, however I’d settle for almost anything moving in this general direction.

Now my prayer is always for restoration, of course. Sue me. I believe in miracles and in the power of Almighty God. This morning I actually received an answer. As usual it was not the answer I might expect. What was the answer? It doesn’t matter. Yes. You are reading correctly. Strangely enough, I was not disturbed by this. On the contrary, I was at total peace. Why?

With the revelation I had, and I can only call it a revelation, I understood how I can best serve my Heavenly Father and my Lord Jesus the Messiah. What is that? Do good. Speak the truth. In other words, steady as she goes. No matter how the storm rages around me, I am to simply trust. More on this in a bit. Here is where things get, um, well you be the judge…

Granted I wrote the sentence above as thunder booms out my window. It’s the first rain we’ve had in quite a while. We can all write that off as my mind incorporating the surrounding environment as I write – right? Before I started this essay, I made my morning rounds to a couple of news and blog sites I frequent. This morning I was greeted with a warning about trouble stirring ahead in the form of major lockdowns to the extent of one needing “papers” to travel even within the state. Yeah, yeah, I know. Yet another warning about the coming evil. Along the same lines, we are being inundated with illegal aliens swarming across our southern border, the Delta variant is infecting both inoculated and those who are not. Yesterday, an article warned to get ready for the National Guard to start going door to door, jabs in hand or some such. A report from Florida says they’re experience the highest Covid deaths ever, though word has it the delta strain is less deadly than its predecessor. In other words, the future of this nation has not looked so bleak in my lifetime.

It is easier than ever to give in to the gloom surrounding us. The controllers are not letting up. Indeed they are doubling down. Without divine intervention they will succeed! I am certain of it. Certain but not concerned. Why? My trust is in God Almighty. Consider this passage from scripture:

Mark 14:32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.

33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;

34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.

35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.

36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?

38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.

40 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.

41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Jesus knew what was coming. He knew the scriptures so he understood he would be beaten so badly as to be unrecognizable. He knew he would be crucified. He knew his side would be pierced. In other words he knew he was in for a world of hurt. He also knew he didn’t have to go through all that! That’s right. He suffered all of this by choice. Even standing before Pilate (and I expect it took everything he had just to stand at that point.), he stood firm, with full knowledge the worst was yet to come! Yet for all of this his heart was “not what I will, but what thou wilt”.

Now if my Lord Jesus could endure all of that… if he could trust his Heavenly Father to deliver him… why can’t I? I am reasonably certain I will not have to go through anything like Jesus did.

Luke 12:4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

My prayer for my nation remains for the restoration of this nation but my stance is the same as that of my Lord Jesus as he faced certain death: “not what I will, but what thou wilt”.

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

For decades I prayed to understand God’s Will for my life. I sought His Will in many other ways also. I prayed for wisdom and guidance for many different situations and a variety of circumstances. It took me a very long time to understand the true freedom I’d been granted by God Almighty. His Will for me has always been the same. No matter what I do or where I go, I am to:

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Anything I do in accordance with the above is blessed by God Almighty. Anything. During my time on earth I have done many things that I’ve regretted. No, they were not all bad things, just, well, not optimal. Some of these I did actually believing they were what God wanted me to do. Were they? Possibly. Possibly not. IF I had set my sights on God rather than struggling to do whatever I thought He wanted me to do, I believe things may have turned out more favorably. I cannot say. What I am saying is seeking God’s Will is much simpler than most of us suspect. Are we putting God first in our lives? Is what we are looking to do in line with “love thy neighbor as thyself”?

Many of the decisions I made in the past, prayerfully or not, were made based on circumstances – a job offer or things happening in my current employment – some event or opportunity available to me. Many times these decisions were made under stress. Had my focus, my trust been upon my Heavenly Father, my decisions would have been far easier. This is not to say the outcome would always be without issue or as one might expect. Consider the plight of Joseph, for one.

The bottom line is, whether or not our nation is restored, as Christians, we need to keep our sights on God Almighty. This in no way guarantees a smooth ride to the end. As a matter of fact, we can expect turbulence and tribulation. The good news is we’ve all been able to peak at the ultimate outcome. Spoiler alert! God wins.

FBI’s Most Wanted: U.S. Capitol Violence

Much has been said about the lack of video released for the Jan 6 event by the feds. You’ll find several videos on the page linked below. All I can say about the source is they are on the FBI’s Most Wanted page. Take it as you will.

Nor have I watched any of the videos on this page to date.

At this time I’ll state unequivocally, I am absolutely opposed to promoting, inciting or initiating violence of any sort.

That said, lemme ask you… if someone fires a weapon at a law enforcement officer, should the officer be allowed to defend himself? By what means? What if the officer was off-duty? What if the officer was retired? What if it was a private citizen rather than an officer?  I’ll leave it at that.

As for the events of Jan 6, again, I refuse to excuse anybody who promoted, incited or initiated violence on that day. However I do expect those caught to be held to the same standard as any other citizen performing similar acts on any other day. The principle is called “equal protection under the law”.

FBI’s Most Wanted: U.S. Capitol Violence


GOP Representatives DENIED Access to Political Prisoners

The good news is, the plight of the political prisoners being held is gaining attention. The bad news is, the stink thus far is not pungent enough to allow even representatives of Congress access to either verify or dismiss the claims of abuse.

What are they hiding?

On another note, below is a video of two Michigan residents who were arrested (this is old news):

The video says these men were released. I found no listing for  either Matthew Staley nor Shawn Floyd  on the Capitol Breach Cases page

Isn’t that interesting? Maybe their names will turn up in the MI case concerning the plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer. Even more interesting is whether they would be defendants or witnesses for the prosecution.

Capitol Cases – A List of Political Prisoners.

Note: If you look through all of these cases, you will seen not all of those charged are still detained. What is more interesting is browsing those who have been released

Consider ALBERTS, Christopher Michael  Here is what the record from the above link states:

Arrested on 1/7/21.

Initial appearance / detention hearing on 1/7/21. Defendant released.

Preliminary hearing held on 1/28/21.

What was he charged with?

Unlawful Possession of a Firearm on Capitol Grounds or Buildings; Unlawful Entry or Remaining on Restricted Grounds without Lawful Authoirty; (SIC) Carrying a Pistol without a License Outside Home or Place of Business; Possession of a Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device

[Bolding mine]

These are some of the most serious charges I’ve seen to date and yet he was released, while others, such as Joey Biggs, remains in custody. What is Mr. Biggs accused of?

Conspiracy; Obstruction of an Official Proceeding and Aiding and Abetting; Destruction of Government Property and Aiding and Abetting; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Disorderly Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds

If you remember, I posted some of what Mr. Biggs had to say about is confinement on Tuesday. Yesterday, a group of GOP representatives attempted to see some of these prisoners. They were denied. I’ll post that story next.

Jan 6 Political Prisoners – We Cannot Stand for This!

Below you’ll find  a couple of articles detailing accounts of prisoners arrested for the Jan 6 “armed insurrection”. This is what the controllers call it, while all last summer these same people refused to denounce “peaceful protesters” who burned cities, burned federal buildings, shot and brutalized at will.
There are many more articles out there, I have just begun to collect them.
When did this become acceptable in America?

We cannot stand for this! Please share this post, share these links – whatever you can to get the word out. We citizens need to pull back the rug to reveal this stink!

Joe Biden – The New American Pope

By now if you haven’t seen the hoopla surrounding the latest smoke signals from the White House, go back to sleep. There’s no hope for you anyway. For the rest of us, well, I’m not sure if we should laugh, cry or simply say good-bye to our nation. I’m referring to the announcements concerning “misinformation” and the regime’s stated efforts to put things right, I suppose.

Jen Psaki - "Miss Information"In effect Jen Psaki says they are working with social media, specifically Facebook, but she may have singled out others, to put a stop to Covid-19 “misinformation”. Apparently they are also working with SMS (text messaging) providers to cull wrongthink from texts we send each other. Of course, I imagine the first thought most of us have is “What about our 1st Amendment?”, followed by “What is stopping them from putting the skids on other forms of wrongthink?”, and then, “Who do they think they are?”. It’s this last supposed thought I’ll address here, hence the title.

Think about it. Fair warning, I am not, nor have I ever been Catholic, so anything I state about Catholicism is stuff I’ve picked up over the years. Take it with a grain of salt. That said, I understand the Pope is held as infallible and that’s where I’m coming from. It stands, then, to reason that Joe Biden, along with his coronation as p-Resident is now essentially declaring himself our New American Pope.

His holiness has to be infallible, otherwise how can he, unilaterally, declare what is TRUTH and what is falsehood? Now, I’ve only ever understood that the Catholic Pope is the only man on earth deemed to speak pure unmistakable words. Even certain kings, who believe themselves God have not overtly done such. (Keep in mind, I have not studied the topic in depth so I may, well be mistaken here but you get the point.) Now that I think about it, is it possible Ol’ Joe expects he should rise to the prominence of a Pharaoh, Chinese, Japanese or Roman emperor? These all considered themselves gods.

Pope or emperor, it makes no difference to me. The end result is the same. We can now see the beginnings of an entity who expects the world to see himself as bigger than life itself. Far too big to be constrained by a mere constitution. Why should he be bound by the laws of men? Why does he need a congress? Is he (should I now be rendering the pronoun He or HE?) not above all of this? Speaking of pronouns, I find it a bit difficult to get a grip on them. As we all know, we peasants are rarely blessed with direct communication from the great one himself. Such trifles are relegated to others, such as his press secretary. However, as I understand it, all of these decrees emanate from the source. In light of this it may be time to speak of our p-Resident in the plural Victorian. This we can use they instead of “him” or “he” and Mr. p-Resident can refer to themselves as “we” and “us”. I’m pretty sure even the Catholic Pope refrains from this.

So there you have it. We need no longer concern ourselves with what or how to think. We have The One who will tells us all TRUTH and will benevolently correct us when we run afoul. All of this courtesy of Joe Biden, our New American Pope… or Pharaoh… or Emperor. My apologies for not being more specific. I’m sure they will soon be forthcoming with the proper acceptable forms of address along with guidance concerning the correct title we subjects are expected to use.

Update: on further reflection, I considered how this post meshes with my current views. In other words how does this fit in, seeing as how I advocate turning to God  Almighty to ask Him to restore our nation?

As noted above, historically, certain rulers have deified themselves. This is basically what is happening here. The controllers are elevating Joe Biden to a godlike status. The end result is the destruction of our nation is accelerating more and more each and every day. Remember that snowball?

I am not going to cite example after example. The controllers are attacking our republic on every level. How much longer to we have? I cannot say. How long before I am prohibited from saying?

Go to God now. Ask Him what He would have you do. Keep asking until you have an answer. Prayer is our first defense right now.

Mark Levin – American Marxism – Is He Wrong?

Note: This is most of the text from an email I sent to a fellow Christian I am corresponding with. I tried to edit out any irrelevant parts, but if something doesn’t seem to “fit”, that may be why.

Last night (Sunday)  I caught part of Mark Levin’s show where he is currently promoting his book “American Marxism”. We purchased the book and I have just started it, however after absorbing a significant amount of the main ideas from his broadcasts, I can tell you right now, Levin is missing the mark. (no pun intended) Don’t get me wrong, I believe he is one of the better commentators and analysts of our time. That said, he is not seeing things from the spiritual aspect. Now maybe I am the one who is blind. But I feel this is an important take on what is happening around us. Here goes:

Again, I try to see the events of today in relation to the end times prophecy. Why? Because it is the one thing I am certain of. There will be a one-world government, along with all we’ve seen predicted.

Now, our nation is not found anywhere in scripture. Why? I don’t know. What I do know is there are a lot of things not included so, I do not concern myself with this. However everything plays a role, including our nation, so while we are not “included” we are not excluded either. What I am convinced of is there can be NO one-world government as long as the USA exists in our current form. Prophecy or not, this is easy to see.

With this in mind, everything happening today begins to make much more sense.

Levin says the reason the democrats (actually the globalists, they exist in all parties and outside of political parties) are pushing illegal immigration is to import more democrat votes into the nation. I believe he is at least partially mistaken. This is why:

1) When the globalists succeed in eliminating the electoral college, they will have turned our constitutional republic into a functional democracy. The mob will rule. Note they have already succeeded in corrupting the republic in respect of Senators, when they changed the constitution to elect them by popular vote in 1912. Yes. This is how long the globalists have planned the demise of our nation.

2) While flooding certain states and districts may be desirable to secure the remaining Senate and House seats to make their coup complete, I see this as secondary as they already effectively have control for the most part. Yes, they do need to boost votes in a handful of states but the current flood of new votes only accelerates the process

3) Once the ultimate goal of destroying our nation is understood, the ulterior motive of the globalists is clear. The massive importation threatens to strain local, state and federal budgets to the breaking point. Cloward-Piven is credited for outlining this.

4) The southern border of our nation is essentially erased. No border, no nation.

Now let’s turn to the other issues we see unfolding before our eyes.

Spending. Again, look to Cloward-Piven to understand the real goal is to drive inflation through the roof while “all of a sudden” coming to realize that “Gee, we’ve got to pay for this somehow.”. Look for massive tax increases to further destroy the middle class.

Bluntly put, the airwaves are fraught with examples of ways the globalists are trying to bring this nation down, from Merrick Garland inviting the UN to examine our human rights practices to CRT to the piece by piece dismantling of our God-given rights.

At this point I am only trying to unveil these things for what they really are. We need to have our eyes open. It may well be too late. This does not matter. It is not for us to determine. God has already put the timeline in place. HE has already determined not only the when but the what. IF our Heavenly Father chooses to restore our nation, it will only be temporary. Keep in mind we are talking about an eternal being who is already 2000 years late by some men’s reckoning. What if He chooses to allow our nation to fall? Our responsibility is the same, though our duties may change. Let me clarify.

As of today, I see our duty to our nation is to lay claim to our right to self-govern and to hold those who have usurped power and authority accountable. This duty remains unless and until the constitution is declared invalid and the transformation to some other form of government is complete. Should this happen then our nation is lost and our duty as citizens dissolved. Whether we decide to bow to the new rulers or not would then be an individual choice.

Our responsibility is today and always to do the Will of our Heavenly Father. Today, part of this responsibility is to do our duty as citizens as described above. We are granted freedom of speech and freedom of religion for a reason. We are to speak God’s Word. We are to LIVE God’s word. This responsibility transcends any and all governments. Whether this nation or whatever replaces it, we are to remain faithful to God Almighty and our Lord and Savior Jesus the Messiah. Our nation, our constitutional republic WILL be replaced, it is only a matter of timing. This was true from before the foundations of the earth.

As far as any fix is concerned, man cannot fix it. Only God can do this and He will. We just do not know how or when. The fix may indeed be God’s ultimate solution as prophesied. If there is to be something in the interim, this also is His prerogative, not ours. All we can do as Christians is individually seek out and do His will as best we can. If we rise up and hold forth the truth of God’s Word, then we can see great things happen. We cannot and should not do this with a view of “changing the world”. We only need to focus on doing what we are able to do. By doing this, God can enable us to do far more than we believe possible. Consider the time when Peter walked on water. He took the step. God kept him on the water rather than allow him to sink.

This is how I see things this morning. The clarity I had last night impresses upon me the urgency of any efforts we take. I am convinced time is short. The coming globalist foray is racing towards us as a snowball from a high mountain. It is sure to bring devastation.

ALL we can do is go to God immediately. For a long time now, I’ve moved beyond asking God for anything specific other than to make clear His Will for my life and a clear path to take. Strangely enough my scripture reading today in the OT was Psalm 25. I urge you to begin reading the Psalms, beginning with the first with a mind to how the words relate to things happening today. WE cannot do anything other than shine a light on the truth. We must do this regardless of what is happening in the world.

Go to God. He will show you what you need to know and do if you ask. Trust in this.

Door to Door Vax Teams Making the Rounds

Well that didn’t take long.  A few days ago I posted commentary on this regime’s threat to go door to door to promote covid “vaccinations “.

The Goons are Loose: Biden’s Jab Patrol Spotted Going Door to Door; Now Offering Shots on the Spot (Video)

Well that is their stated intent. Pardon me if I look upon their professed good intentions with a wary eye. Like Ronald Reagan said,  “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help. ”

Sorry dudes, I refuse to be terrified.

One comment I read included an excellent idea I’m adding to my preparations (such as they are). I’m adding the phone number of my local Sheriff to my phone directory for quick access. What preparations you may ask. Simply this, I am requesting all family members follow suit should a government shadow cross our door.

Do not answer any questions.

Do not offer any information.

Request they leave the property immediately.

Call the Sheriff for assistance if necessary.

That’s it.  I’m not looking for nor do I desire any drama here. Just go away.


Answering The Constitutional Naysayers

Note: this is my reply to commenters on another blog who essentially dismissed our constitution and therefore our nation.

I, for one, am tired of this defeatism seemingly pervading even the conservatives posting online. Some seem to expect arm conflict. Some appear to lust for it. Yes, our constitution has been abused, trampled, even shredded. Yes we’ve seen our rights wiped out with the stroke of a pen time and time again. Wiped out… or so they think. I contend our rights are inalienable. By definition this means something that “can’t be transferred to someone else, taken away, or denied.” In practical terms, I have a right to breathe.  One can indeed deny said right and even cut off my oxygen supply and thus deprive me of my life.  Usurping my right to breath and cutting off my oxygen does not wipe out my right. In other words, my right still exists. In same sense, even a SCOTUS opinion denying one of my inalienable rights does not wipe it out.  Thus even our vaunted Supreme Court must bow to God Almighty who gave us these rights.

Now, for those of you who pooh pooh our constitution, I have a question. Have you surrendered then? In other words, will you simply forfeit your God given rights as enumerated in the founding document of this nation and therefore are you ready to bow to your betters who ARE your betters by their own mere proclamation?

What then? What do you propose? War or armed conflict by some other name? Or maybe you plan to vote your way out of this. Oh. Yeah. Voting is something done in some recognized form of government.

Allow me to suggest that unless and until a formal declaration of the abandonment of our constitution is made and a new form of government is officially installed, by whatever method, our Constitution is still the law of the land.

As such we are still self-governing citizens. The mess our nation is now in is NOT entirely the fault of those who usurped power and authority by fraud or device – fraud being feigning to “represent” a group of citizens while actually representing their handlers. It is NOT the fault of those “deep state” players installed in powers of so-called authority by the usurpers. Whose fault is it then?

If we can blame anyone we should first look inward to ourselves as citizens. WE have allowed this to happen by consistently giving to the nod, time and time again, to those who openly and brazenly abuse their fiduciary duties. Granted we have all been snowed, misled into believing lies such as “Our nation is a democracy”. Democracy, simply stated means mob rule. We are NOT ruled by a mob. Our founding document established a limited government granting limited authority by citizens who elect representatives to administer and preserve our republic. Few, if any, of us was taught this. However not being taught does not excuse us from our duty to learn and understand our responsibilities as citizens. I know I was not taught this. I did not pursue this knowledge until very late in life. I am as guilty as anyone of shirking my responsibilities as a citizen. Now that I’ve come to a better understanding myself, I feel duty-bound to help others understand these things.

Know this: those who have usurped power and authority fear us and rightly so. Otherwise they would have formally declared their absolute rule over us. Instead they inch towards such a declaration, gaining ground each day. Our power is NOT in our arms. Our power is in our voice – not the voice of one but the voice of the nation, comprised of free citizens in a constitutional republic. I am just one voice. Some may say “loudmouth”. So be it. No matter how loud I can be. If I can shout so every ear in the nation can hear me, I am only one voice. I am only one citizen. This is the difference between how our nation was designed and what it has become. The usurpers centralize their power. Their desire is to emanate authority from one place, our nation’s capitol. Our nation was designed to distribute power equally amongst all citizens. Thus I do not have any more power or authority than anyone. WE THE PEOPLE have power and even that power is limited by constitutional constraints. Once we realize our power and understand how to wield it, the usurpers have nothing.

For those of you who laugh and scorn our constitution, I say you are either defeated already or an active minion of the usurpers. For those who feel defeated, all is not lost. Not yet. For you minions… if your masters do indeed succeed, their victory will be a short and empty one. God Almighty will prevail.

Is The Door to Door Vaccination Push More Insidious Than Innocent?

Granted, I don’t put much stock in anything the pResident mumbles off his note cards, much less his off the script ramblings. That said, there’s much ado concerning his recent proclamation that federal agents will go door to door to “get people vaccinated”.

After the uproar Fox News reported White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stating this:

“Let me tell you what this is and what it is not,” Psaki responded by again pointing out the federal government is not mandating vaccines. “What this effort is is a continuation of what we have seen as an impactful effort that we’ve had by local public health officials and volunteers in a range of communities over the last month of action.”

Fox also reported this statement:

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on Thursday responded to criticism unleashed by some Republicans this week over the Biden administration’s plan to go “door-to-door” to encourage Covid-19 vaccinations in targeted communities, arguing—contrary to what some GOP lawmakers have asserted—it is “absolutely” the business of the federal government to engage in such an push.

Okay. Just so I am straight on this, those charged with enforcing laws in this nation have declared it is “their business” to go door to door to push Covid-19 “vaccinations” upon every citizen in this nation. After all, they are just looking out for us… right? So, just for tickles and grins, I’m going to assume our “fearless leader” is all about benevolence. Wonderful. How does this play out?

Someone knocks on my door, telling me “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Oh joy. Now then, does this person ask me if I or anyone in this household has or has not been “vaccinated” or do they inform me? Let’s assume the former. They ask. My gut response is, “That information is none of your business.”. Now what? Do they nod and go away? Do they first mark their log book? Maybe they will first ask who resides here. Again. Who’s asking and why? Because it if you have to ask, it is none of your business. Should anyone persist in this line of questioning, my inclination is ask them to leave my property. If they refuse I’m then inclined to call my local Sheriff requesting they be removed.

Now what if they tell me who I am and then inform me I have not been “vaccinated”? My gut response is ask how they came by this private information protected by federal statute. There is no valid answer as far as I am concerned. Maybe their information is incorrect. Since they have no legal right to it, then they should leave it at that. Don’t worry agent, I am fully capable of handling my medical needs myself. I have not requested nor do I need your help. Thank you and goodbye. Again, should they refuse to leave I will ask for assistance from my local Sheriff.

Mind you, my responses detailed above are entirely speculative. However they are based on certain principles I feel are valid.

First, my “vaccination” status is nobody’s business. Period.

Second, you may note I have consistently put “vaccination” in quotes. This is because to the best of my knowledge a vaccine for Covid-19 does not exist. The current concoction is not a vaccine and thus the term “vaccinated” as it relates to this virus and/or its variants is a misnomer. A misnomer I refuse to legitimize. In this respect, then, it is impossible for anyone in this nation to be vaccinated for this virus.

Third, An agent, or representative, from the Federal Government is not now nor ever welcome to come knocking on my door to inquire about anything, especially my private health status. For that matter, neither is anyone from the state and local government. If I want your “help”, I’ll ask for it. Thank you.

Now I hate to come across as irritable but I’ve had about enough nonsense from these people. IF any of them had EVER bothered to ask, I’d give them an earful of what I DO want from government. I can pretty much guarantee you, what I have to say, they do not want to hear. In a nutshell: “go away, but empty your pockets of the money extracted from us taxpayers first.” Now for clarity’s sake, I am talking about governments as a whole and no one individual. Individual cases need to be addressed by due process of law. My point is we need to scale back government intervention to the boundaries set by our Constitution.

That said, I wonder… is all this “door to door for your own good” business simply a prelude? When said agent marks the log, is said mark meant to notate with whom to schedule a future visit? Could such a future visit be somewhat less “friendly”? Now before you get your panties in a wad, I’m not sayin’ I’m just askin’.
