Although I consider myself to be firmly in the Classical Dispensational camp (Scofield, Larkin, Chafer, Ironside, et. al.) I tend to linger in the fringe areas of most fields of study more than most. Not so much in the increasingly crowded Nephilim, UFO, transhumanist, et. al. corners of the fringe, but more in the realm of things forgotten or questions unanswered. Things that are overlooked because they seem irrelevant or dismissed simply as nuance. As I mentioned in my previous brief (The Mystery of the Kingdoms), it’s the little things that pique my interest.
Speaking of things forgotten, way back in ancient times (the 1990s), there was an alternative rock band called Alice in Chains who had a popular song titled “Got Me Wrong.” There was a line in the song that goes like this–
…As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong
I can’t let go
Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow…
That line has always stuck in my head. I don’t know if it was the singer’s intent, but the image of a weathered flag always came to mind. In my mental image, the ends of said flag are weathered and coming undone. Loose threads hang uselessly like spent spider webs. And not to build any kind of doctrine around a snippet from an old rock song, but the process of unwinding itself hearkens back to both the Second Law of Thermodynamics (entropy) and William B. Yeat’s epochal poem, Second Coming, in which he writes–
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
The center cannot hold. The ends unwind slowly. Things falling apart.
This is the entropic state of things in the year of our Lord, 2022.
Whether we are talking about the major news events of our day highlighting some new and terrible calamity, or just watching the process of our communities and cities succumbing to the atrophying effects of sin, there is no doubt that things are falling apart. There is no arguing that sad reality. On any given day, there are at least twenty different existential threats, threatening to undo Western Civilization. But there is one aspect of this I'd like to hone in on in today's brief– the erosion of public trust and how that is being weaponized. It is to this point, I would like to begin with a snippet from Henry Olsen's Washington Post article addressing this very issue–
“Confidence in public institutions is falling in part because of the belief that the people within those institutions do not work for the public’s benefit. Worse, many of those who exercise terrible judgment, such as the Federal Reserve governors who presided over the 2008 financial collapse and today’s entirely foreseeable inflation surge, keep their jobs.
Nearly a year after the devastating and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, none of the senior military officials who presided over the catastrophe have been fired. The idea that there are two sets of rules — one for the powerful and another for the rest of the country — is gaining credence precisely because there are so many examples that it is true.
This wasn’t always the case. Generals who lost important battles, such as the mauling of Allied forces at Kasserine Pass in World War II, were relieved of command because of their failures. Now, the “too big to fail” mantra that has been applied to large financial institutions seems to have morphed into “too important to face the consequences” for many high-ranking officials.” (Washington Post)
The confidence in his article, meaning, the public trust in institutions that were supposed to be looking out for our best interests, has been lost. Mr. Olsen’s article was in response to the cowardly response of law enforcement officials in the recent school shootings in places like Parkland, Florida, and now Uvalde, Texas. But it’s more than simply blaming inept law enforcement, isn’t it? I mean, aside from the vociferous calls by democrats and leftists for a couple of years now to both defund the police and make them out to be modern-day pariahs, consider the uptick in the events themselves. Note the increasingly frequent cycle, for which we endure this increasingly familiar cycle for which these increasingly frequent and horrific events now happen.
Shock– we are brought the news of some horrific event that shocks our intellect and senses
Desensitization– the news coverage blankets everything for a brief moment with said horrific event causing us to become saturated with the crisis du jour
Politicization–lawmakers come out of the woodwork promising kneejerk draconian legislation in response to said horrific event (as if mass shootings/killings weren’t already illegal enough)
Anger– As government officials (local/city/state/federal) begin to close down discussion on said horrific event, the millions of unanswered questions the public still has remained unanswered. As the government-sanctioned obfuscation becomes more obvious, public anger and mistrust that something is amiss begins to fester
Moving on– A new day brings new crises, new scandals, and new news. The mass casualty event of yesterday is summarily minimalized until it becomes a historical footnote mentioned only in passing until the next mass casualty event occurs
Now, numerous questions have begun to arise (as they often do) as to how and why these mass murderers do what they do. The government and media are seemingly never interested in questions like how an unemployed 18-year-old high school dropout, could afford two high-end semi-automatic rifles (Daniel’s Defense) worth at least $2,000 a piece, plus a $700 optical scope, sixty clips, body armor, and 1,600 rounds of ammunition all totaling around $9,000? Their questions always seem to revolve around how can we restrict access to guns, never about why these killers do what they do. As far as unanswered questions go, I have some that go back decades. Here is MY list of unanswered questions surrounding numerous past tragedies.
Who else aided Lee Harvey Oswald in the assassination of JFK?
If Oswald acted alone, then what do we make of his assassination by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby?
Why the decades-long redaction and classification of all related documents?
The Vietnam War- 1964
Who authorized the Gulf of Tonkin narrative?
What did America stand to gain by entering a land war in Asia?
The Oklahoma City Bombing- 1995
The 1995 Omnibus Counterterrorism Bill was first introduced in February of 1995 but did not get voted on due to its massive violations of Americans' civil liberties. The Oklahoma City Bombing happened in April of 1995, which seemed (at least to me) either very convenient or some last-ditch effort (justification) to get the Omnibus bill back on the table. It wasn't. However, six short years later (September 11th, 2001) this same bill was resurrected and rebranded "the Patriot Act" and summarily voted on, approved, and passed into law within 30 days of 9/11.
September 11, 2001
While there are plenty of questions surrounding this day, my one question was why were all the surveillance CCTV cameras (except one) around the Pentagon (one of the most secure facilities in the world) not working that day?
Sandy Hook Elementary- December 2012
What is up with all the bizarre CIA-Hollywood connections and weird absurdities surrounding the 2012 Sandy Hook Massacre? Even SNOPES (who I don't trust at all) has had to respond to 14 different conspiracies surrounding this particular school shooting. The sheer number of conspiracies/coincidences alone makes you wonder.
For example, is it merely a coincidence that there was an active shooter exercise (FEMA L-366 Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters) at the Carmel Elementary School in Bridgeport, Connecticut (14 miles away from Newton, CT) on the same day as the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre? It's possible.
Is it also a coincidence that Robert Holmes, the father of James Holmes - aka the "Dark Knight" theater mass murderer in Aurora, CO, and Peter Lanza, the father of Adam Lanza "Sandy Hook Mass Murderer, were both set to testify in front of the US Senate regarding the Libor Scandal? Coincidence? After a while, the coincidences start piling up.
Las Vegas Country Music Festival Shooting- October 2017
How did the 2017 Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, kill and wound 573 people from his 32nd-story hotel window with little to no known weapons training?
Why wasn't the media screaming the dangers of "white supremacist extremism" (as they always do) after learning Stephen Paddock was in fact, a white guy? The only thing anyone seemed to care about after the Vegas shooting was 'bump stocks.'
How was Stephen able to move all those weapons and ammo to his room unnoticed? Or keep it undiscovered by housekeeping or other hotel staff?
Jeffrey Epstein- August 2019
Why was Jeffrey Epstein isolated in a jail cell with a broken CCTV surveillance camera?
Why has none of the clients of Jeffrey Epstein/ Ghislaine Maxwell ever been made public? (We know why but I'm asking rhetorically)
Why do so many mass murderers claim to hear voices prior to their dastardly deeds?
Have the intelligence agencies resurrected some version of the CIA MK Ultra program to help sway both government officials and the general population to disarm? If you are unfamiliar, MK Ultra had been deemed a conspiracy theory for years until it was unequivocally proven to have been a real government mind control program using illicit drugs on unwitting citizens
How come semi-automatic rifles are the only subjects of discussion when mass casualty events occur (regardless of whether a semi-automatic rifle was used or not)?
If a person plows his vehicle into a crowd (Waukesha, Wis.), vehicle restrictions are never discussed.
If the perpetrators use a bomb (Boston, Mass.), legislation is never introduced to restrict access to crockpots or other devices which have the capacity to be used as bombs.
There is almost never any discussion on the other contributing factors to the psyche of the criminal- such as behavior modifying medication (pharmaceuticals), violent video games, music, and movies? As far as we know, 37 of the past mass killers were on behavior-modifying medication. Why isn't this ever seriously discussed?
How come none of the people who knew the perpetrator (before the event), didn’t feel compelled to report them to law enforcement (due to their tell-tale warning signs of bizarre and dangerous behavior)?
An even more disturbing thought is if they did report them to law enforcement, and law enforcement did nothing about it? Why aren't they held accountable?
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
Whether it was violent attacks on the Pilgrims by the indigenous pagans (i.e. Indians) on the East Coast or the military campaigns against the colonies by the British armies under King George III, this nation has been under attack since its founding. Strangely enough, there has always been someone attempting to prevent this nation from being founded.
In true Luciferian fashion, once Satan's initial attempts to abort the US from becoming a nation failed, he shifted tactics. He reasoned that if he could not destroy this nation from without (i.e., foreign powers), he would destroy it from within. Beginning with the encoding of Freemason symbolism into our nation's founding documents and architecture, Satan would use both corruption and division (ex. slavery and states' rights) to help tear apart these United States. From the 1820 Missouri Compromise, Satan worked relentlessly until he could push the nations to the point of Civil War.
After the Civil War failed to permanently divide the nation, Satan began a more subtle form of subversion by importing European liberalism and Marxism into the US under the guise of academia (both religious and secular), banking, and big business. He used the Democrat party to continue perpetuating systemic racism throughout the nation (i.e., Jim Crow Laws, KKK, Eugenics, Margeret Sanger, Federal Segregation, Japanese Internment, etc.) while corrupting every institution that made this nation great. Since the turn of the century, it has been one ideological struggle after another, with the left increasingly inching further and further left finally making enough headway to becoming permanent mainstays in Hollywood, academia, and government bureaucracies since the 1960s.
All of the craziness we have been witnessing since the 1960s begins to make more sense when you understand that the powers that be, are not just political or economic. They are primarily demonic and use the people inside of politics and economics like tools to shape the directions of empires and nations. They are dark and malevolent spiritual forces who use their campaign of whispers to influence their possessed servants like human meat puppets.
These demonic forces, who are lords and princes of vice and territories, are using proven battlefield tactics and strategies to drive an increasingly desperate citizenry to demand a more totalitarian government. IOW, we are living through a real-life version of the Hegelian Dialectic, where those in control, already have a prescribed solution in hand. For them, mass casualty events are but catalysts meant to herd people like cattle towards a pre-determined conclusion.
Now, when you consider people like Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Cheney, and the rest of their ilk, they really aren't that smart. In fact, they aren't intelligent at all. They for sure aren't smart enough to conjure up all the things that are being done now in the name of global governance (digital currencies, man-made climate change, COVID19(84), etc. They are, however, being influenced by smarter people who live behind the scene like David Rockefeller (deceased), George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Larry Fink, Bill Gates, etc. These are the ones who have bent their ears to these demonic overlords and taken their guidance from them. They're convinced that global governance is the solution to all their problems. Regarding the issue of global governance, they are of 'one mind.' Who, might you ask, is influencing them that global governance is the solution?
Lucifer is, and he isn't even original in his tactics. He is using tried and tested strategies to create an increasingly desperate situation (crisis) where the citizens (pick a nation) finally come to think that a stronger government is the be-all-end-all solution. Well, what's stronger than a one-world system? Since these problems are artificially created by Satan to generate the façade of crisis, it makes sense that he can just as easily resolve them in order to empower an individual (his man) to take all the credit. Perhaps this is the one whom Prince Charles referred to as the "his" in his COP26 Speech back in October 2021 at the Glasgow Summit.
Prince Charles: (02:40)
We also know that countries, many of whom are burdened by growing levels of debt, simply cannot afford to go green. Here we need a vast military style campaign to marsh the strength of the global private sector, with trillions at his disposal far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders. It offers the only real prospect of achieving fundamental economic transition. (My emphasis) Source
The fact that neither the Prince nor anyone else connected with him has come out and clarified who he was referring to, is cause for concern. It means a conspiracy is afoot and only those within a close circle of conspiring elites know who this individual is. Again, all these global problems they are crying about shouldn't be too hard to fix, after all, they either created them or facilitated their present conditions. Here is a list of artificial crises' created by leftists and globalists:
$30T in US national debt with another $169T in unfunded liabilities
Open borders and the weaponization of illegal immigration (Cloward and Piven Strategy)
Rampant lawlessness in our Democrat-run cities
State-sanctioned promotion of narcissism and nihilism
Replacing our educational bedrock with post-modernism and cultural relativism
Reconstructing our nation's history and heritage
State-sanctioned promotion of poisonous political ideologies like Marxism, socialism, and fascism
Tolerating politicians who openly commit treason by partnering with international bodies committed to the destruction of our nation (e.g., UN Agenda 2030, WEF 'Great Reset', etc.)
But we tolerate these things. The real question is why? Why do we tolerate them?
First, by way of an analogy, in most traditional units in the Army (can't speak for other services), there were two major divisions within an Operations section. There are Current Ops and Future Ops. Current Ops were always busy dealing with all the day-to-day events like routine missions, meetings, daily reporting requirements, etc. to make that organization run. But Future Ops was always focused on everything beyond the present. They spent their time looking ahead, planning future missions, and helping shape the things to come for the organization.
Most people are too busy living in the now. They are who I think of as Current Ops people. Life has got them so wrapped up in the daily grind (i.e., making money, paying bills, building families and careers, keeping up with Jones's, etc.) that they either don't have the time to think of things to come, or the desire to. Oh, they might be into investing and getting their retirement portfolios put together, but they aren't thinking of spiritual things.
Secondly, our government has become way too big. It's an abomination, bloated to the gills with unnecessary bureaucratic agencies and departments that are not accountable to its citizenry. We have allowed a swamp (permanent bureaucratic class) to go unchecked for decades. But any time any president has tried to take it on (JFK, Reagan, Trump), they got dealt with.
Thirdly, we have allowed special interest lobbies to control our political parties. Robin Williams once said that politicians should have to wear sponsor jackets like NASCAR drivers, so we knew who owned them. I wholeheartedly agree.
Fourthly, under the guise of winning the Cold War, we have allowed for the creation of the most powerful intelligence agencies the world had ever seen. As these agencies came to life, they fed like selfish piglets on the teets of the American government. But as they transitioned off of milk onto solid food, their appetites became even more voracious. But instead of meat and meal, they feed off of war, conflict, and crisis to continue justifying their own existence.
This is why we went into Cuba (Bay of Pigs) and Vietnam
It's why we funded Saddam's war against Iran and the Taliban's war against the Soviet Union
It's why we continued to grow NATO even after the Soviet Union collapsed
It's why we waged a twenty-year war on terror
It's why goaded Ukraine into taunting Russia
It's why we need a Chinese threat
Without conflict, these agencies face the budgetary chopping block, and they will not go quietly into the night.
Lastly, we abandoned the idea of a balanced nearly eight decades ago. Perhaps it was those dastardly progressives like Franklin D. Roosevelt (delinking our currency from gold), or the crafters of the Bretton-Woods Agreement. Perhaps. By the time Lyndon B. Johnson implemented his costly Great Society Initiative whilst simultaneously waging an expensive land war in Asia, we were quickly heading toward an economic apocalypse. By the 1970s, Nixon had to delink our currency from the Bretton-Woods Agreement, causing the US Dollar to become a free-floating fiat currency. An ingenious plan was crafted to then link US currency with OPEC stability (i.e., military reassurances) that caused all nations on the planet to have to keep US Dollars as their reserve currency. This fiscal maneuver bought us some wiggle room, but it was never intended to be a permanent solution.
During the Carter Administration, committed globalists like Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger (vis the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission), along with the Bilderbergers, Rockefeller Foundation, and so forth, presumably convinced our leadership to spend ourselves out of debt. Of course, they knew Keynesian Economics doesn't work, but they needed our 'Almighty Dollar' to collapse in order to bring about a global currency.
Thankfully, the technology wasn't ready then. Although they presumably didn't understand what was really happening (as they were being used by demonic forces) they were attempting to force God's timeline ahead of schedule. Instead, God gave our nation a reprieve in the form of Ronald Reagan.
Another four administrations would follow (Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama) all attempting to reverse Reaganomics and usher in (again) a 'New World Order.' And once again, they were trying to force God's timeline, but this time, He gave us a reprieve in the form of Donald Trump.
Now we (the collective we) are at the very end of ourselves. We are not just an empire in decline, we have declined and are now living off of borrowed time. We are out of road on which to kick the can down. We are out of runway on which to safely land. We are out of tricks up our sleeve. We (as a nation) are literally, hanging on by a thread oblivious to the dangers that lie below us.
I used to wonder how the educated and advanced German people of the 1920s and 30s could have followed a funny-looking man like Adolph Hitler and his brown-shirted National Socialists into power. I mean, didn't they realize what a nutcase this guy was? But then I realized how deceived the German people had been up to and through World War I. Second Reich German propagandists, up until Armistice Day -Nov. 11, 1918, had portrayed the German Imperial Army as both invincible and undefeated. So defeat was the last thing a shocked German nation ever expected. It was during this period of shock that allowed for a man like Adolph Hitler to step in and quickly garner supporters who began to champion his vision of a thousand-year Third Reich.
We've seen that same kind of shock recently by those who were told over and over by practically everyone that Hillary Clinton was an absolute shoo-in to be the next president. They then watched all of that bogus propaganda deconstruct before their very eyes on the night of Nov. 9, 2016.
This certainly explains the level of vitriol the leftists and democrats displayed over the course of Trump's presidency and the absolute blatant desperation to which the left would go to sabotage the 2020 elections (damn the consequences!). This same level of desperation that caused the German people to turn to a man like Hitler, caused our political left to turn to a dementia-addled candidate with a corrupted soul named Joe Biden. Even then, they couldn't get enough votes to drag him across the finish line so they had to stop the counting and flip the script in four states to ensure Trump couldn't win.
Which tells me God allowed this for a reason.
What we are watching happening now, is a generation quickly and intentionally being given over by God. We have a generation who are rejecting obvious truths under the illusion of intersectionalism, equity, and diversity and are being aided and abetted by a complicit government. Mark my words, any nation that can't define what a woman is, or what an unborn baby is, or how many genders there are, is a people ripe for the great delusion. They are a people who would overwhelmingly embrace a man like Adolph Hitler if he promised them bread and circuses.
Of course, Biden isn't the next Hitler. Joe Biden doesn't know where he is half the time. He can't even string a coherent sentence together. No, Joe is more like the aging German Kaiser Wilhelm II, who, after losing WWI, faded miserably into history only to watch his nation succumb to the allure of Hitler and his national socialism (Nazism).
Neither will the next Hitler come in with a funny mustache and dressed in khaki-cub scout attire. No, the next Hitler will be The Antichrist and is going to appear attractive, vibrant, and tolerant. He will use his advanced intellect and flowery language, to win over the widest possible group of people. But don't let his debonair looks and mastery of public speaking fool you. Although he won't look like Herr Hitler, he will be that same devil in sheep's clothing.
He is going to preach tolerance while being the most intolerant man who ever existed. He will specialize in double-speak (dark sentences); saying one thing but meaning another. He is going to appear as a great peacemaker but will be a man of extreme violence who is wicked to the core. He is going to come in at the right moment (right after a global crisis) and will get the whole world to follow him by promising to them bring peace and security (a new thousand-year kingdom).
But just as He did with Hitler, God will curtail that final gentile kingdom down to seven years. He then will toss both the Antichrist and his henchman (the False Prophet) directly into the Lake of Fire a thousand years ahead of everyone else, because they were responsible for sending billions of souls to hell.
The fact we are seeing our nation plummetting as quickly as it is now, while troubling, is also reassuring for the students of Bible prophecy. As bad as things look now (economically, politically, religiously, and culturally), the Bible told us that this is what the last days would look like (perilous times). While we don't delight in seeing our world collapse, we don't despair either. We must be future ops people with eternity in focus, living in a current ops world. We must get busy investing in eternity by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as we can, in the few precious moments we have remaining, so that we can bring as many with us as possible.
If your faith is in your career, or your country, you're investing in the wrong things. This world is passing away, and the lusts thereof, but we look toward that heavenly country and city, whose builder and maker is God (Heb. 11:16, 12:22, 1 John 2:17).
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Philippians 3:20-21
