The Bible prophecies the rise of the ‘The Beast’ (Anti-christ), to whom God will give authority over the world (Rev13:3-5,8,14,16-18) as head of a one-world government…but only for a period of time—Thank God! What I have found very fascinating over the past 40 years of ministry is the attempt to understand ‘how’ the Anti-Christ will come to power. After the revelation of the Coronavirus, a few more pieces of the puzzle have fallen into place.
Following are four pieces of the puzzle I understood prior to Coronavirus:
1.Hitler is like a predecessor to the Anti-Christ. For example, Hitler caused the Jews to take his mark on their hands and arms. Like the Tribulation, World War II lasted 7 years, 1938-45. Like the AntiChrist, Hitler tried to annihilate the Jews.
2.Over 10 years ago, the Lord led me through a 5-year study Nazi Germany. One of the many things God taught me was how Hitler came to power. In short, the Weimar government was liberal, and although Hitler hated liberalism--because he believed it to be soft; he used it to take power. One of the fundamental components associated with liberalism is toleration*. Yet, if you tolerate everything, you will eventually tolerate the thing that destroys you. The Weimar government tolerated Nazism, which ultimately destroyed it. The contemporary world is literally running after liberalism, which like Hitler, the Anti-Christ will use to usurp power and impose a one-world government.
3.The Anti-christ will be a muslim. To understand this incredible truth please read the ‘Islamic Anti-christ’ by Joel Richardson. As a teaser, you will find that their Mahdi, as described in the Quran, is the Biblical Anti-Christ.
4.Even though liberalism boasts of toleration, they love Islam, which is by far ‘THE’ most intolerant religion and philosophy in the world…this fact alone demonstrates liberalism’s amazing delusion! What is also very interesting, is how both liberalism and Islamic nations accept Communism/Socialism, even though Communism is atheistic—for example Iraq.
What I have learned from the Coronavirus is that a crisis like this can almost instantly bring the world to its knees, where a one-world government is considered the only answer. For example, this virus has the potential not only to infect every person on earth, which would obviously destroy the economy because sick people can’t work!
Because liberalism’s number one priority is political power, they are watching closely how the Coronavirus crisis is handled. From this they will learn how to use another crisis to assume dictatorial power! For example, like Global warming!!!
You don’t believe it? How about the words of liberal Rahm Emanuel, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” This simple statement can only have one meaning—a crisis can be used to benefit those who think like him. Second, recently Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C. declared to the House Democrats that this catastrophe (Coronavirus) is "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." To what vision do you think he refers? The vision of taking back political power! In other words, he advocates not to use our traditional system of voting to assume power—he is declaring it’s much easier to use a crisis! Third, the Republicans and Democrats joined together to give away 2 trillion dollars—where individual people will be given money by the government. Two comments: i.America is 20 trillion in debt, where did we get two trillion dollars to give away? ii.By this example, there is no reason when liberals regain power that they cannot invent a crisis in order to make all Americans financially dependent upon the government! I repeat, for example Global warming!
Or, how about the article: “The Religious Right's Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Response to the Coronavirus.” which was originally titled: “The Road to Coronavirus hell was paved by Evangelicals.” The title says it all! According to liberal author Katherine Stewart, the spread of Coronavirus is the fault of, not on the Chinese, but evangelicals! Therefore, now that the evangelicals are responsible for Coronavirus, i.e. a crisis, government force will be necessary to control the churches, even if it means the violation of the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting the establishing of a religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof. However, to violate the First Amendment, the government will need to change the constitution! How can they do it without the 2/3 of government approval? By using the right crisis!! Now we are seeing Representative Clyburn’s words come alive right before our eyes: “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision."
If you think my idea of a one-world government is far-fetched, please read the following recent news articles. First, “The Guardian” published a piece called, “Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus”. Gordon Brown is the former Prime Minister of Britain, who calls for a one-world government to handle Coronavirus. Second, liberal Politico news agency published a piece called “Coronavirus Will Change the World Permanently. Here’s How.” In the second paragraph, the writer declares: “…But crisis moments also present opportunity…” The obvious question is opportunity for what? Well, the underlying tone of article, which includes input from “34 big thinkers”, or ‘experts’---is that we need government to take a bigger and greater role in resolving all crisis!!! On the contrary, the degree or amount of government authority permitted in America was not only ‘THE’ major concern of our Founding Fathers, but more importantly, big government is condemned by God! The Bible calls is idolatry! When Israel desired a king (authoritarianism) like the other nations around them, God instructed Samuel:“And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they
say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.”
In other words, THE sinful propensity of all human forms of government is to usurp God’s role, i.e. to become God to the people! On the contrary, only a wise people, who take seriously the Word of God, can prevent this tragedy. Presently, liberalism is THE threat to usurp authority in America ending with ‘The Beast’s’ one-world government!
“Discover your uniqueness; then discipline yourself to develop it.” -Jim Sundberg
By using the term ‘separation of church and state’ in a letter to the Danbury Baptists, did Thomas Jefferson intend to create a secular society? Let’s continue investigating TJ’s ‘real’ thoughts, life, and heart on Christianity.
4.In 1779, after becoming Governor of Virginia, TJ introduced several bills to the state legislature:
i.“A bill for punishing disturbers of religious worship and Sabbath
breakers.” This bill declared, “If any person on Sunday shall
himself be found laboring at his own or any other trade or
calling…except that it be in the ordinary household offices of
daily necessity or other work of necessity or charity, he shall
forfeit the sum of ten shillings for every such offence.”
In case you missed it, TJ along with two other individuals, submitted a bill that made it illegal to do certain types of work on Sunday! And, violation of this public law was punishable by a fine!
ii.“A bill for appointing Days of Public Fasting and Thanksgiving”.
This bill declared, “The power of appointing Days of Public
Fasting and Thanksgiving…may…be exercised by the Governor.
Every minister of the Gospel shall, on each day so to be
appointed, attend and perform Divine service and preach a
sermon or discourse suited to the occasion in his church, on
pain of forfeiting fifty pounds for every failure, not
having a reasonable excuse.” (Barton, pg169,170)
This is one I really enjoy because I’m a preacher. This bill declares two incredulous things:
a.The ‘Governor’ of the state can declare days of Public Fasting and prayer! Please note that the law did not say a pastor, preacher, or minister of the Gospel…it said a Governor! Remember, this is a civil law of the land…not a church law!
However, the second point caused me to laugh out loud!
b.It appears this law applies directly to preachers on those specific days of fasting and prayer determined by the Governor. If this is true, incredibly, the law states that when the Governor declares a day of fasting and prayer, preachers must organize and hold church services, and then preach a message suited to the reason of the Governor’s declaration…or be fined!!! Note, the fine applied to each time the preacher refused to preach!
Oh my!!! I love it!!!
iii.“A Bill annulling marriages prohibited by the Levitical law and
appointing the mode of solemnizing Lawful marriage.” This
bill stated, “Marriages prohibited by the Levitical law shall be
null; and persons marrying contrary to that prohibition and co-
habitating as man and wife, convicted thereof in the General
Court, shall be fined from time to time until they separate.”
This bill actually has written into its body the terms “Levitical law” and “Levitical marriage”. Are you aware of the origin of the term “Levitical”? Of course you do--The book of Leviticus in the the Bible! This bill will send contemporary liberals into a frenzy! Yet, its origin was Governor Thomas Jefferson, who eventually became, President Thomas Jefferson!!
I repeat…as Governor—TJ personal introduced these Bills to the state legislature!!!
5.“In 1780, Governor TJ ordered an official state medal to be created with the motto: “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God!” The origin of this statement was Samuel Rutherford’s Lex Rex(1644).” Later, TJ also incorporated this same motto for his personal seal! (Barton, pg170)
6. “In 1789 Jefferson was secretary of state to President George Washington. One of his assignments was to construct Washington D.C. In 1795, newspapers reported on his progress, “City of Washington, June 19. Is it with much pleasure that we discover the rising consequence of our infant city. Public worship is now regularly administered at the Capitol, every Sunday morning at 11:00, by Reverend Mr Ralph.” (Barton, pg171)
Here is the question—who approved this worship service? There can only be on correct answer—the one who was in charge—Thomas Jefferson!
These facts may be new to you…but they are irrefutable facts of history! On the contrary, TJ was no deist, nor atheist, nor did he attempt to establish a secular government and society! Somebody has been fibbing to us!!! I wonder who?
*Facts in this tidbit taken from historian David Barton’s incredible book “The Jefferson Lies”, which possesses over 2000 footnotes!!
"If no other consideration had convinced me of the value of the Christian life, the Christlike work which the Church of all denominations in America has done during the last thirty-five years for the elevation of the black man would have made me a Christian."
-Booker T. Washington
Did TJ use the term ‘Separation of Church and State’ because he desired a secular society, scrubbed of any religion? Did TJ use the ‘Separation of Church and State’ because he was an atheist, and despised Christianity?
Let’s examine the facts:
1.In 1773,** the Boston Tea Party protested against the British oppression. The British responded by setting June 1, 1774 as the date to blockade the Boston port destroying its trade and economy. “…upon hearing of this, TJ and a handful of patriots (Richard Henry Lee, Patrick Henry, Francis Lightfoot Lee, and a few others) arranged for a measure to be introduced in the Virginia legislature*** calling for a public day of fasting and prayer, “devoutly to implore the Divine interposition in behalf of an injured and oppressed people.””
Incredibly, that same legislation called for the legislators to “proceed with the Speaker and the Mace to the Church…and that the Reverend Mr. Price be appointed to read prayers, and the Reverend Mr Gwatkin to preach a sermon suitable to the occasion.”
If that was not enough, TJ wrote his local church in Monticello to arrange for a parallel day of prayer and fasting…which he actually attended!!! (Barton, pg168)
In review, TJ introduced a bill to the Virginia legislature, not to the private sector, but the government sector…calling for the people to fast and pray. Then he found preachers to pray and preach. Then he inspired his home church to get involved, which he attended! Sounds like he violated his own separation of church and state…except for one small point--he never intended to promote liberalism’s re-definition, which is: ‘separation of God from the state’.
2.'In 1776, while serving in the Continental Congress, Jefferson was placed on a committee of five to draft the Declaration of Independence. He was the principal author of that document, and it incorporated four explicit, open acknowledgements of God…”: (Barton, pg168)
i.“Laws of nature and nature’s God”
ii.“all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their
iii.“Supreme Judge of the world”
iv.“protection of divine Providence”
“This document was actually a dual declaration: a declaration of independence from Great Britain, and a declaration of dependence on God” (Barton, pg168). Considering this is one of the two most important documents in American history--with other being the Constitution—considering these four points, it’s really hard to fit TJ with the charge of atheism!
3.“On July 4, 1776, Jefferson was placed on a committee of three to draft an official seal for the American government. His own recommendation included a Bible account of “the children Israel in the wilderness, led by a cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night” (Barton, pg 169).
The three men assigned to this first committee to design the American seal were TJ, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams. See the seals of TJ and Franklin below. Let’s be very candid, do these two seals by Jefferson and Franklin look like they originated from the minds of men who reject miracles? Do these seals describe men who believe God created the world, but left-it for humans to figure things out? I mean, both seals describe Israel in Egypt, which depict God intervening in the world through the miraculous…but Deists categorically reject the miraculous! Not only does this contradict the supposed deism of Jefferson and Franklin, but it is a direct contradiction of the liberal mindset that America is not a Christian nation!
Why would Jefferson and Franklin offer a seal with ideas taken from the Bible, if they believed the people to which they were presenting those ideas were atheists or deists? Were they so dumb that they thought their Biblical, i.e.Christian seals would be approved among a group that rejected the Bible?
In conclusion, do the above facts present Jefferson as a man who hates Christianity? Who is an atheist? Do the facts describe a man who wants a secular society? Do the facts describe TJ addressing a secular, non-Christian people? On the contrary, to any objective person, these facts sound very much like TJ was a Christian government official, presenting his Christian colleagues, with biblical material to consider for their approval, because all those involved understood that “righteousness exalts a nation”(Pro14:34)!
No…TJ’s use of the term ‘Separation of Church and State’ with the Danbury Baptists does not allow for its liberal re-definition: ‘Separation of God from the State’!
*Facts in this tidbit taken from historian David Barton’s incredible book “The Jefferson Lies”, which possesses over 2000 footnotes!!
**Over 25 years before TJ became president! This means he held these beliefs for decades!
***Please note this was organized including the government!
Unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got!
