The Most Agonizing Love of All Created the Anti-Christ

The greatest pain we will ever have in life is loving someone who cannot return our love in kind, or worse, doesn't understand or is even disgusted by it. We will feel horribly inadequate, flawed, and hurt. It's a torture we can't endure for long. We may try to negotiate, hoping that we can persuade the person to love us, which almost never works. So the pain will deepen even more. Many murders and other "crimes of passion" are committed by sufferers of unrequited love. 
Satan rebelled against God because of this pain.  Lucifer (meaning "light bearer") was once a favored Archangel in the highest realms of the Creator's Heaven, but he rebelled when he couldn't have the last shred of God's affection, ultimate power. So he fell to our earthly realm. 
Many people are afraid to believe in a Creator. "What if I loved Him and was rejected for my transgressions?" they wonder. The pain would be deep and very sharp. But what they don't understand is that God is almost infinitely forgiving. Nothing we can do is unforgivable, except consciously and with real intention trying to harm Him. Judas and the Temple High Priests who crucified Jesus can never be forgiven, but very few of us are that Satanic. People who claim to speak for God, but who don't have His permission, are in grave danger of the Pit of the Inferno. 
Ask God to forgive you and He will. Give yourself over to "the mercy of the court", and you will be exonerated.

The Most High God rules in a celestial court with the Elohim, powerful and mysterious entities we mortals on earth can't ever understand. Lucifer was once among them:

He's variously known as "the man of sin" or "man of lawlessness", but he's not just an individual person. He's the spirit of the age, the zeitgeist, an inspiration and model to godless people everywhere. His mission is to destroy all of lawful civilization as we know it; the Judaeo-Christian Western Tradition. Wherever there are revolutions without lawful spiritual guidance, chaos and mayhem take over. Slavery, imprisonment, and death for most people becomes a terrible reality, as if Moses never liberated the Hebrews from Pharaoh; Jesus failed to inspire us; civilization has been an illusion; and Satan has defeated God Almighty. That is the goal of the Anti-Christ. 

Lawlessness in the U.S. now is as bad - or worse - than it was in 1861. Abraham Lincoln wrote about it, "We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last, best hope of earth.... As a nation of free men, we must live through all time or die by suicide." 

Anti-Christ nations are well established now. Wherever people are stripped of their freedoms, forced to work for a state that doesn't value them as individuals, or seizes their property in the name of "the common good", you know the Anti-Christ is in charge. Our rights are God-given, not State-given, and cannot be taken away.

The Anti-Christ's arrival was predicted a very long time ago, and he seems to have hovered and haunted mankind since ancient times. Terrible and powerful rulers foreshadowed the Anti-Christ. Nero, Attila the Hun, Muhammad, and even Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Tojo, and Mao Tse Tung were candidates. They certainly tried to dominate the world. But the time wasn't yet ripe. 
Communist China's Xi Jinping embodies the Anti-Christ now because he declared five years ago that from that date onward, "the party comes first, and the law is second"; that is, the laws of the nation are whatever the Chinese Communist Party says they are at the moment. Which means all contracts from that time on - and possibly previous contracts - are null and void. Lawlessness rules. Hong Kong is free for the taking. 
China is on the fast track to Perdition.

For 2,000 years the idea that the Anti-Christ would, or could, control a large part of all the nations in the world was thought to be preposterous and impossible. But now  we have a global media, instant communications, and armed forces capable of arriving anywhere on the planet within hours or days. It's suddenly obvious that everything has changed.

There are many Old and New Testament passages about the Anti-Christ, and the most famous is through Jesus, from Mark 13:

“Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom."

The Apostle Paul wrote about the Second Coming of Christ, and what must happen before it:   "Let no one in any way deceive you, for it [the Second Coming] will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God."  2 Thessalonians 2:3 
Anti-Pope Francis (who still refuses to call himself Pope), has roiled the Catholic world with heretical declarations, and he sits in the ultimate "temple of God", St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican. He's certainly animated by the Anti-Christ, as Archbishop Vigano has proven.

Great things are going to happen to us. This is the Divine Promise:
"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you for my name's sake. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot."  Luke 6:22
We are beings of Spirit fire, and the worldly materialists are beings of earthly water. Either our Spirit burns hot enough to keep the water away, or the water eventually puts out our fire. "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire; and like launderers’ soap." - Malachi 3:2

Jesus forgives all of us, and he said, "Just as my Father has granted me a Kingdom, I now grant you the right to eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom. And you will sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
The Prince of This World offers only transitory things, wealth, power over others, sex, status and prestige. All these things leave us unsatisfied and unhappy. Nobody can stop the aging process and physical decline. Plus, your life will be over sooner than you think, and then you die. What then?
The Lord Almighty gives us 100 times more, a vastly more real world, and eternal life with Him. Many of us faithful are living a real nightmare of oppression right now. But when we do pass on from this life, it will be exactly like awakening from a bad dream. We will realize that the Truth is supreme; that death, like darkness, vanishes in the Eternal Light.
Awaken. Act. Heaven beckons us. The future isn't really dark. For us who are faithful, our victory is guaranteed.

Biblical scholars agree that Eve, the first female, was the highest - and in some ways most perfect - creation of the Lord. She was the final act of divine generosity; drawn out of Adam and intended to complete him, and give exquisite joy. 
The lovely girl above is very much like a young Eve; the kind of person we will be living with in wealth and pleasure unimaginable. Listen to her performing on the  harpsichord. There is a lot of music in the realms of Paradise.

Perhaps you're wondering, "Why would a good God allow such a terrible thing as the Anti-Christ?" Excellent question. C.S. Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia answers it here:

The Necessity of Evil; The Shadow Proves the Sun 

"God will not allow unrighteousness to become eternal. He permits revolution, disintegration, and chaos to come as reminders that our thinking has been wrong, and our dreams have been unholy. Moral Truth is vindicated by the ruin that follows when it has been repudiated." - Bishop Fulton Sheen

Don't All Black Lives Matter?

In the United States of America, from 2017 until the Chinese virus wrecked the economy, African Americans experienced record employment and income increases, along with other minorities. But you would never know that if you have been listening to the global media propaganda machine.
An alarming new organized crime cartel, calling itself Black Lives Matter, has been spreading lies all over the western world, and all of global civilization is endangered. Their methods embrace violence, arson, and murder. Entire towns and cities have been permanently damaged by them and the mobs they incite. Tragically, blacks and other minorities are usually hurt the most or killed. 
What's more shocking is the craven weakness of large corporations like Nike and the National Football League, who pay out millions of dollars to BLM and Antifa (another crime cartel) to buy "protection" from attacks of "racism!" and the destruction of their property. This is the classic "shakedown" used by the Mafia, cocaine cartels, and other criminals since time began (LInk).
Ironically, all money donated to BLM is funneled through ActBlue Charities, a Democratic Party controlled entity (Link). And the cities BLM complains about are all controlled by Democrats, and have been for at least half a century.  

The whole reason Black Lives Matter exists, say their leaders, is to "stop the murder of unarmed African Americans by police forces everywhere." This is a lie. In all of the United States in 2019, only ten unarmed African Americans were killed by police. Five years ago the situation was much worse. In 2015, during President Obama's term, thirty-eight unarmed blacks were killed. There were no protests then, except for Ferguson, MO. Far more unarmed whites per capita are shot by police.
Meanwhile, cold blooded murders of policemen have soared, even though most precincts today are multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and often commanded by African Americans or other ethnic men and women. 

In a single city, Chicago, IL, over 500 murders took place in 2019. According to the FBI, almost 80% of those murdered were black, and almost 80% of the murderers were black. This year will see a higher murder rate than 2019, when over 7,000 blacks were murdered. Has Black Lives Matter ever cared about or even mentioned those black lives?  Many more policemen of all races were murdered in cold blood by African Americans in that year.
But don't take this author's word for it. Here is a veteran African American law enforcement expert:

Black Lives Matter is a major force pushing to "defund the police", who are the only force standing against criminal chaos and murders in the inner cities. Polls show that inner city working people value strong police presence, and they want more of it.
Since May, when BLM began calling for defunding the police, New York and some other cities obliged and fired large numbers of officers. The murder rate has soared. On Father's Day weekend alone Chicago saw 104 shootings, and 14 fatalities. Most were black. New York City's crime rate has soared. There has been a 100% increase in shooting victims this year.

Black Lives Matter is also openly against the traditional family. But the destruction of the African American family - which began in the 1960s - is the main, well-documented reason so many blacks end up in prison, welfare, or other dysfunctional situations. Fatherless boys  commonly end up in prison, as Barack Obama warned in 2016. Here are more details and statistics:

The world is being ripped apart by lies. Black "Lies" Matter is only one of many newly-minted Marxist, totalitarian, and organized crime cartels. Antifa is another, and behind these and many others is a billionaire career criminal named George Soros. He was born a Jew in Hungary, and literally grew up helping his father and the Nazi SS round up, rob, and transport Jews to death camps (link).

This author has met police in the most tortured communities in Philadelphia, and has witnessed astonishing professionalism, skill, and courage. Men and women of every ethnic and cultural background serve in these integrated precincts, and their lives are made ever harder by a malicious mayor (who insults them), a district attorney (who threatens them and releases murderers and felons by the score), and other craven politicians who aid the chaos. Police officers everywhere in the U.S. have targets on their backs. Why don't their lives matter?

Our lives and civilization could end overnight if we don't pray to God and work to defund Black Lives Matter, Antifa, the Democrat Party, and all other organized crime cartels masquerading as political, cultural, or economic "reform" movements. They want totalitarian power, modeled on the Chinese Communist Party,  and culture war - which was perfected by Mao Tse Tung - is their specialty. They hate God. They are the children of Satan, the Father of All Lies. 

Be very alarmed by anyone who openly speaks in glowing terms about Marxism, socialism, and 'progressivism'. These terms guarantee that our human rights and individuality will be crushed by a powerful and irresistible state. Misery for all is inevitable, and it's a master plan that's been operating for over a hundred years:

Each of us must choose a side, a philosophy, between the Judeo-Christian God or His eternal enemy, the Devil.  Once there was a middle ground, and life was easier. But there's been a huge change, and everyone feels it. Your eternal soul is at stake. Choose well.

Our Time Is Now; Pray To God For A Global Exorcism

Chances are you're unemployed and running out of money enough to live. The business you own or the one that employed you is shut down, and won't reopen soon, if ever. The reason why your government did this sounded convincing months ago; that there were going to be mass infections and deaths if everything wasn't shut down. But most of us don't know anyone who is infected, much less hospitalized or dead. The "expert's" estimates were horribly inflated, even in the countries most affected, like Spain and Italy.
The fact is the economic damage that's been done in almost all countries is more terrible than the Chinese virus predictions. 

Here in America the governors of many states with almost no fatalities have gleefully closed businesses, beaches, and parks; while ordering people to stay in their homes. It's actually property theft, house arrest, and a gross violation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Lives are being destroyed wholesale.
But these authorities don't care, and many have been caught violating their own rules, cheating, and sending relatives out of the states they govern. They're even demanding tax money from the people and businesses they've ruined. 
A few months ago nobody thought this could ever happen in the United States of America. Nothing like this has ever happened. The American Civil War wasn't as damaging and destructive as this will turn out to be. 

Update: The mob violence we're seeing globally now is being encouraged and applauded by the same authorities who have been jailing people for going to their churches, hair salons, or beaches; because they weren't practicing "social distancing". 
Now thousands gather closely to burn and loot cities; and attack police and innocent bystanders. They aren't "social distancing" are they? The "deadly" Chinese virus always was a lie crafted to bring down civilization.

The European Union was designed - in principle - to ensure fair treatment for all its members in any crisis. But the wealthier EU nations have treated themselves much better than the poorer ones.

Ironically, one nation in Europe, Sweden (with over ten million people), refused to shut its economy down. They kept their restaurants, schools, churches, and shops open, with only one caveat: they suggested to their citizens that it might be a good idea not to gather too closely, and wearing a mask might keep infected people from transmitting the virus. That's all they did, and their infection rates and deaths per thousand are lower than a dozen other European countries that have ruined their economies for a generation. 
We know that drug addiction, suicides, depression, family disintegration, and deaths increase dramatically with high unemployment and economic failure. Deaths from these causes are already higher than the fatality rates from the Chinese virus. Suicides alone have exceeded deaths from the Chinese virus in several U.S. states.

Who benefits from these horrors and fatalities? The Father of All Lies, Satan, does. Maybe you don't believe he exists. Well, keep watching. Scroll down to the bottom of this article. The Evil is growing. Cities are burning. A blizzard of lies gushes from governments and media organs all over the world.

It's very clear that we're in grave danger of being enslaved by a totalitarian, Chinese-style world government. China (aka the PRC) is the world leader in spying - both on neighboring countries and their people - by every technical means. Literally millions of cameras with facial-recognition software are watching people everywhere in their cities:

You may be fined, arrested, jailed, and even killed if you offend the communist party there, and you may not even know why. They monitor every phone, know all about anyone they want to know, and even harvest the organs of living people against their will. Millions have vanished into death camps because they're Muslims, Christians, homosexual, or otherwise "undesirable". Over 21 million cellphone users disappeared since February with no explanation (Link).

Chinese civilization dates back to at least 1,250 B.C., when the first written records appear. But they never had a strong, ethical leader or religion. No Moses and Ten Commandments; no Jesus and his Apostles, or Last Judgment. Judeo-Christianity never took root there, in spite of the work of missionaries over the centuries. 
Buddhism had some effect in China over the millennia, but Buddhism is vague about morals, and teaches that good and evil are illusory. Belief in the existence of an afterlife or Heaven and Hell was actively discouraged by Buddha himself. Mao and his Communist Party liquidated priests and philosophers by the millions, even those who venerated Confucius and Laozi, the two greatest thinkers who ever lived in China. 

In October, 2014, the PRC's Communist Party leaders met to propose and adopt changes in national policy. One of these changes was named Party First, Law Second, which essentially placed their entire legal system in the hands of top leaders who could, on a whim, adopt new laws or remove any previously established law. From this point on, no contract or agreement - whether national or international - can have any binding significance. This retrograde step places China in the category of rogue nations, and no other nation or business entity is safe in believing that the PRC can or will honor any treaty or contract (Link).
A few years ago Party Secretary Xi Jinping was made President for Life, essentially a new emperor, who can do whatever he wills. Mao Tse Tung - who saw to the deaths of over 65 million of his people - is back, in spirit. 
Western leaders are highly alarmed at this totalitarian reversal from true representative government, and have said so. It threatens the well being of the world, and damages trust in China's true motives.

On May 14, 2019, the People's Daily newspaper in Beijing declared that there was from that day forward a "people's war" on the United States. (Link) The People's Daily is the purest voice of the Communist Party in China. In spite of the fact that they've enriched themselves enormously by having had unrestricted access to the American economy since 2001, and have cheated and gotten away with intellectual property theft and tariffs on U.S. exports, they are, quite predictably, furious. Asians in general, but the Chinese in particular, are rarely able to take criticism gracefully. However, lawlessness destroys trust, and can't ever be acceptable among trading partners, so President Trump called them to account. 
Wars are often unavoidable. China fired the first shot long before they published it in the People's Daily. They've been claiming others' territory and bullying their neighbors for over a decade.

On May 22, 2020, the PRC seized Hong Kong, in violation of every treaty they've signed since 1997, when the U.K. government returned the country to the Chinese people, according to a 100 year-old agreement.
(The PRC promised that there would henceforth be a "One country, two systems" policy for Hong Kong).
But now they've seized control of its government, courts, and businesses, essentially.  Private property will now be taken at their will and given to Communist Party members. Every Hong Kong citizen can be deported and imprisoned in mainland China for any reason, and many are, right now.

The PRC solemnly promised in 1997 to allow the citizens of Hong Kong the freedoms and relative independence they've always enjoyed, and which created astonishing wealth in the tiny province. Hong Kong is only 426 square miles in size, but has over 7.2 million citizens. Their annual gross domestic product (GDP) is over $365 billion dollars (U.S.), more than    $1 billion a day; which is an average annual income of more than $50,000 for each citizen. This exceeds the wealth of all but a few nations in the world, and is due to the extremely high level of economic freedom; and the trust they've earned in global markets for being a reliable and trustworthy safe haven for all assets. Now that is over, and nobody is safe.
The Chinese Communist Party has been sharpening its knives for years in the hopes of carving up Hong Kong. It will be interesting to see what it looks like in a few years. At the moment, it's very attractive. 
The PRC revamped Shanghai decades ago to make it an equal competitor with Hong Kong, but the totalitarian environment made global investors very wary and suspicious. Those fears are now validated by the fate of Hong Kong.

China's policies have created vast "ghost cities", which are like something from a science fiction novel:

The COVID-19 virus originated in Wuhan, PRC, and possibly on purpose. Their own doctors who discovered the virus and its deadly properties were silenced and punished. Some disappeared, and a few died of it. China refused - and is still refusing - to let any foreigners in to find out what those doctors knew. Many in the global media have refused to report what we know to be true, and they even parrot the PRC claim that U.S. soldiers planted the virus in Wuhan.
Yet only Australia and the United States are pursuing an investigation to find out the truth and COVID-19 details. Many governments have been openly threatened by the PRC. The Chinese told the U.S. that they would cut off the vital medicines it needs for the treatment of all diseases if the U.S. kept probing. Sadly, America has allowed the PRC to corner the market in drug production for twenty years.

Throughout the world fascist authoritarians are subverting our human rights to speak freely, assemble to petition our governments, or engage in the commerce we all need to have a decent life. 
This has happened with breathtaking speed. In almost every nation in the world we were duped into quietly complying by dire predictions of mass deaths from a mysterious virus.

Have you ever wondered why, in spite of 250 years of scientific progress, human evil has grown to planet-destroying strength? We're one step away from nuclear, chemical, or biological Armageddon. 
Since ancient times, but particularly since Sigmund Freud in the late 19th Century, science has studied the human mind and heart in every way possible or imaginable, hoping to be able to eliminate their evil impulses. This whole project has been a spectacular failure, and Evil metastasizes daily, for good reason. 

God created us to be his supreme accomplishment, His Magnum Opus. But God has a bitter and powerful enemy from those earliest days of Creation. This enemy has focused all his rage, jealousy, and vengeance on humanity, and has almost succeeded in degrading us beyond redemption. 
Satan is a counterfeit god. Just as God has millions of angels and seraphim, the Devil has a vast army of demons. Sometimes Satan is extremely seductive, like a prostitute with dazzling charm. Or he appears as an angel of light. Hollywood is his favorite and most powerful plaything. He loves to entertain. Often he puts on fantastic military shows, like Hitler's Nuremberg rally in 1936, or the Soviet Union's once-annual Red Square Marches of missiles, tanks, and gold-red banner-waving women with 100,000 soldiers behind them. Mao Tse Tung outdid them all in the Forbidden City of Beijing with twice as much of everything. Between Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, hundreds of millions died, and billions were wounded for life; far more than all the religious conflicts and wars in all of human history.

Until around 1900, humanity generally took it for granted that evil was real, that it originated in the human heart, and the arena of the heart was bordered and protected by faith in a good God. But the rise and successes of science gradually persuaded humanity that religion was an unnecessary and often dangerous delusion, that "God is dead". We are "naturally good" (said Rousseau and Voltaire), we don't need God, the philosophers said, and we are gods if only we know how to seize the opportunity.

This also meant that the Devil, a nightmarish relic from a primitive age, didn't exist, either. We smart humans were entitled to possess all the good things in life, didn't have to answer to anyone, and were in fact gods to ourselves. This is the core motivation of all evil. Satan celebrated as he never had before. We waltzed into his ancient trap, convinced we were life's lottery winners.
But death, misery, and Hell await all who are so deluded. The 20th Century taught that Hell does exist, and sometimes it's next door to us. 
If you don't believe the Devil exists, this may change your mind:

God has promised us that this world will be transformed, and He wants us to participate in the process. The first thing we must do is ask for help from the only force capable of removing evil. Like the prodigal son (Link), we have to ask our Father for forgiveness. Exorcism will be frightening, but it's a necessary first step. We who are with God can expect to see wonderful things. Why not try to contact God? There are millions of benefits:

Say "Yes" to God. Ask him to come into your life, and He will answer you. He may ask if you're serious, and willing to accept changes to your routine. Say "Yes", and He will help and reward you.

"He Who Faces No Calamity Gains No Courage" - Rudyard Kipling

He also said, "We're humble because of knowledge, and mighty because of sacrifice". Kipling knew India intimately, and his native Great Britain.  He honored the Laws of Life, and knew their value deeply. 

We are in a time of extraordinary opportunity to distinguish ourselves and gain an eternal place in a glorious Heaven. But only if we align ourselves with the True God and join His royal family. Membership in God's family guarantees us wealth, joy, power, wisdom, and eternal life. Who can say no to that? A lot, apparently. It turns out that billions of people can't or won't try to understand the real meaning of life on earth. But the only thing that will truly enrich us here and now, in our earthly lives, is knowledge of God. The closer we are to Him the richer we'll be in every way, especially after our death. 
Here is a well-kept secret about our afterlife. All of us have a perfect mate in Heaven, and our relations with that perfect mate will fulfill our fondest desires and most wonderful dreams. Nothing in this world can compare with Heaven, because life there is eternal, richer, and more joyful than we can imagine on earth. It isn't a life of playing the harp while sitting on a cloud. It's infinitely more exciting than earthly existence.

Why do we see a rising tide of fear in the world? The Creator is here now to claim His property. Everything in the universe is His. Many of us forget that we don't really own anything. We're all living on borrowed time, and time runs out much faster than we think.

Does a landlord have the right to evict bad tenants? Of course he does. God is our landlord, and He is giving us notice that our lease is up. Many of us have become resentful, discontented, violent, and ungrateful for the gift of life. Ingratitude is fatal to happiness and contentment, and it nurtures perpetual grievance.
Fewer of us, per capita, believe in a good God than ever before. This is a grievous error, and dangerous, because such faith in goodness has always been sure protection against insanity. 

We should be clear now in our understanding of the world's mental condition; which is, a great madness is now operating out in the open. We're living in an age of unprecedented lawlessness; not just law breaking, but no restraints at all in many arenas, such as politics and media.

The Coronavirus outbreak is a powerful sign that God is making Himself known to everyone on the planet by showing us how powerless and vulnerable we are. Before the Coronavirus, major political parties in every western nation were recklessly trying to demolish their borders; allowing all refugees in, without a thought that they might be sick, even dying of diseases. Not to mention the terrorists and criminals who took advantage of this suicidal policy
Worst of all, the rules of sanitation and the knowledge we've acquired about germs and viruses were ignored where this recent plague began. Appalling and filthy foods served in the cruel, sadistic "wet markets" of Wuhan China were one possible source of this Coronavirus. Dogs, cats, bats, and other strange animals were slaughtered, hastily cooked, and served up fresh; often too fresh. 
Another possible source was a biological weapons laboratory in Wuhan, where experimentation is performed. Sooner or later it was fated to happen. Wake up, people. (Wet market link)

The consequences of our reckless actions are the Wrath of God, prophesied since the Book of Daniel (6th Century B.C.). This is very good news for many of us. Ours are the Last Days spoken of by Christ and the Apostle Paul (Link). The righteous and the unrighteous are being forcefully separated, because those who hate or ignore God are an existential threat to His people. The social distancing we're seeing now is going to continue and be enlarged. The many crimes we've grown used to and which have benumbed our consciences are going to be seen in the Light of Truth, the Lux Aeterna.

Infanticide - literally murdering children in the womb or minutes after they've been born - has become standard medical practice in the western world if a woman decides she doesn't want her child. This procedure is classified as one that "improves women's health", despite evidence to the contrary (Link).

Suicidal mass murder is seen as a good military tactic in many countries. Men and women strap on heavy explosives and blow themselves up in public markets, or even weddings. Shooting down civilian airliners is now an approved tactic of Iran, Russia, and other nations (Link) and (Link).

Only a lie of monstrous proportions could motivate people to fall away in this fashion. Some Middle Eastern countries specialize in brainwashing their people into thinking it's God's will that they commit suicide and destroy other's lives, even the innocent's; and they'll be rewarded in Paradise for it. These countries also offer financial incentives to the families of the individuals who destroy themselves.

Many of these nations, like Iran, Sudan, Algiers, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and others are mere shells of their former selves, operated by organized crime cartels masquerading as religious leaders. They lie constantly and with ease.
A good friend said recently, "False witness is sin, and now false witness is being used as a political tool. It's like a mind virus... a plague." 

This friend was referring of course to the ninth of the Ten Commandments of God, and it motivated this author to research the origins of our understanding of the differences, if any, between criminality, mental disorder, and psychosis. Particularly interesting are the psychopathic individuals (Link) who appear to be functioning politicians, leaders, executives, and others in positions of authority. 

Dealing in lies on a daily basis is much like handling nuclear radiation or toxic waste. It contaminates everything around us and destroys from within. At first everything might seem normal. But that's another element of serious lies; the deceit of time, which passes more quickly than we think.
Lying becomes more and more a habit, an expedient tool for covering up the ugly truth about ourselves and others, which destroys our integrity. Criminality can - by degrees - become a mental disorder, and then morph into something deeply evil; again by degrees. 
"We have come to know Man as he really is. After all, man is that being who invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who  entered those gas chambers upright, with The Lord's Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips." - Viktor Frankel, Man's Search For Meaning

The Spirit of Truth is from God. Lying drives out this Holy Spirit, and insanity follows. Some very pertinent Bible quotes:

Jeremiah 25:15-17  "For thus the LORD, the God of Israel, says to me, 'Take this cup of the wine of wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I send you to drink it. They will drink and stagger and go mad because of the sword that I will send among them.'
"Then I took the cup from the LORD'S hand and made all the nations to whom the LORD sent me drink it... Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the LORD, intoxicating all the earth. The nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are going mad."

Ecclesiastes 9:3  "This is an evil in all that is done under the sun, that there is one fate for all men [there is not]. Furthermore, the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil and insanity is in their hearts throughout their lives. Afterwards they go to the dead."

Zechariah 12:4   "In that day," declares the LORD, "I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah [that's us], while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness." 

Those who want to silence and kill us people of faith are violators of every one of the Ten Commandments:

1 "I am the Lord your God..."  [they believe they are gods]

2 "You shall not make of yourself any image..." [they worship money, sex, power, etc.]

3 "You shall not carry the Lord's name in vain..."  [that's all they do] 

4 "Remember the Sabbath Day..."  [they can't]

5 "Honor your father and mother..." [they enjoy spreading tales of parental failures all over the public media]

6 "You shall not murder..." [they murder innocents in the womb, or enable it] 

7 "You shall not commit adultery..." [they're encouraging their children to change sex and commit adultery]

8 "You shall not steal...." [they're robbing their children and fellow citizens by fomenting Marxism-Socialism and worse]

9 "You shall not bear false witness..."  

10 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house, nor wife..." [Marxism-Socialism is entirely driven by envy and jealousy]

This is why we must understand that ours are the the worst generations that ever populated the globe. By now every city, town, village, or encampment around the world has seen and heard the Word of God through the Bible. They've either accepted it or rejected it; which is very good news for us people of Faith and Truth.  In his last days Jesus told his disciples, "This Good News about the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world so that all nations will hear it. Then shall the end come."  Mark 24:14
"Only those who live by faith truly know what's happening in the world" - Bishop Fulton J. Sheen (Link).  Bishop Sheen was the greatest prophet of the 20th Century, a Catholic who never hesitated to chasten or criticize the Vatican, the Pope, Josef Stalin, or anyone else whom he thought was undermining the Church. The evils of communism were a frequent topic on Sheen's weekly - and enormously popular - television program. In early March, 1953, Bishop Sheen told his audience that the Soviet Union's top leaders were all facing death, just as the characters in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar do. A few days later, on March 5, Stalin had a stroke and died (Link).

One more thing. Know this: God can be persuaded to act, or not, according to sincere requests. He wants us to participate in His monumental plan for the renewal of this world, which he created and made perfect.  
So pray as if your life depends on it. It does. We aren't all on a non-stop train to our fated destination. Some of us are being saved as we speak, particularly in the two countries dedicated to Judaeo-Christian principles. Here's one:

Here's another:

Prepare Yourself for the Promised Final Exodus

Every day it becomes more abundantly clear that Judaeo-Christian people of faith everywhere in the world are targets of the western Leftist, so-called "progressive" socialist-Marxists. They are agnostics, atheists, or even anti-theists, and go out of their way to attack God, Jesus, the Prophets, and Scripture. 
They say we're deluded, and religious faith is a danger to their utopian, ideal state, as Karl Marx said (Link). Being materialists with no spiritual understanding, they can only analyze things "scientifically", as they call it. "We are the party of science" they say.
But life is a mystery to science, still, and its processes are subtle, not open to purely rational analysis and dissection.
Leftists believe they have no need for the Laws of God, and they're convinced that they have godly power to determine what is right and what is wrong for everyone. They're eager to use governmental power to enforce their rulings, regardless of existing laws, and change them according to their whims. This isn't just dictatorship, it's totalitarianism; and coupled with new technology, it's becoming a terrifying reality for many. Red China is tracking and watching every citizen in their nation with computers and facial recognition cameras.

Attitudes about the unborn and newly-born are a barometer of the soul-less depravity of these individuals. Globally, "late-term abortion" (infanticide) is being legally sanctioned, even in the U.S., which is a diametric reversal of centuries of legal precedent and moral tradition. If an innocent baby in the womb has no value or rights, then nobody's life is safe from the State. Abortion on this present scale is Satanic. Honest people of faith see clearly that this is a monumental evil. (Link)

As if that weren't enough, Islamists in the 21st Century have persecuted, exiled, and murdered Christians and Jews all over the globe, but particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. Many of these destroyed communities had lived, thrived, and worshiped there for 1,800 years.

It's massively ironic that the Left is deeply sympathetic to the radical Islamists who claim the Koran allows them to buy and sell slaves, kill gays, adulterers, victims of rape, women who don't dress or behave according to Sharia law, and "infidels"; people who disagree with them. Any group that hates Judaeo-Christians is just fine with the Leftist "progressives".
Our understanding of moral right and individual freedom is a major reason we're being attacked and killed wholesale, by the millions, to a degree never seen before:

Almost everyone on the planet has heard of the Exodus of Moses and the Israelites from Egypt, the second book of the Bible; an historical event that took place around 1450 B.C. 
The Jewish nation was born with the Exodus, when Moses led the Israelites out of Pharaoh's slavery, and it thrived in the generations that followed. Moses went on to establish the Ten Commandments given to him by God, as well as numerous other laws and instructions on how to live and worship the single God of all Creation, the source of our Western Tradition.
The successes of the United States and Israel are an outgrowth of their dedication to the God of the Bible. They are the only two nations in the world founded on and consecrated to the ideas of Exodus, and by extension, the New Testament:

Exodus and the revelations of Moses marked the birth of Ethical Monotheism, a new and controversial idea in that dark age of spiritual ignorance. In ancient days, different tribes and cultures were likely to worship a whole host of different gods, one for every aspect of nature (trees, rivers, weather, and animals) or human experiences (childbirth, planting, politics, and war). The Hindus of India today have literally thousands of gods.

Clearly, there cannot be many gods with multiple and contradictory creation stories. Science knows that our entire material universe operates on a fixed and unalterable set of physical laws. It's beyond perfect and infinitely greater than our minds can grasp, but by learning and understanding those laws, we can and have acquired great knowledge and wisdom. Today we find ourselves in a miraculous age of technology and medicine that our ancestors never conceived of. 

Before Israel existed, the idea that any god or gods were moral or cared much about mankind was revolutionary. The gods of Greece and Rome, for example, were positively amoral, and behaved with cruel and reckless abandon. People often feared for their lives and loved ones. Paying off cruel pagan gods with money - or by sacrificing the lives of children, virgins, and other innocents - was common, and persists to this day in some cultures. 
At one point even the Israelites did it (Jeremiah 19:5).

Our God cannot be bought off or placated with things. He asks only that we learn to love Him and our fellow creatures, who also are made in His image. God asks us to be good and perfect, as He is, and that we remember He alone rescued us from slavery in Egypt, "the house of bondage" God called it. 
He chose us to be a righteous people and to go out into the world and spread His message that all people can be holy, meaning separate, and we have an opportunity to join Him. 

The God of Israel promises us that there is an end to the pain and misery in our earthly realm, and a glorious future in Heaven, which makes planet Earth insufferable. 
Our "modern" idea that we can develop as individuals and improve the world originated with our God. Before Moses, the Prophets, and Jesus, human life was unchanging, endless, and cyclical. The good afterlife, if people believed in an afterlife at all, was merely a deathless continuum of their lives on earth. Peasants would always be peasants, and kings always kings. 
Egypt, China, Persia, Greece, and Rome were staic. They looked and acted the same over many centuries; even millennia. 

The God of Israel caused changes across the whole spectrum of our existence by stating that human life - even the lives of women, slaves and the unborn - were precious to Him. Murder was forbidden even if committed by the rich and powerful; along with adultery, lying, and envy. Common people, slaves, and servants never had a formal day off, so God designated the Sabbath Day for all people and their animals. Try to imagine living your life with no formal day off once a week.

Our whole concept of human progress is Judaeo-Christian, as is the idea that Paradise is for all people of God, regardless of wealth, birth, or status. The knowledge that there would be a Messiah, an end to human history, and a final Day of Judgement for all humankind are Judaeo-Christian. 
Muslims came to this understanding six-centuries later, but they believe in the savior Mahdi, the Twelfth Imam,  who will be ushered in by violence. Jesus Christ was merely an ordinary prophet. 

We humans were created last by God, as the pinnacle of His creation. We were given the ultimate gift of love: free will. God does not want programmed robots who do as they're told. He wants us to know and love Him of our own free will. The Lord is now and always has been intensely involved in human affairs, especially when we fail and are in danger of destruction:

Our massive fund of knowledge acquired since Moses has, through enlightened science, brought us closer to understanding the One God. But our materialism has also taken us further away. Our excessive pride and inflated opinion of ourselves has become a major barrier to true understanding. Our mortality should humble us, but it doesn't, generally. We don't much value humility, but great humility is essential if we want to know the infinite power and glory of the Creator. It has always been God's intention to grant us eternal life in joy, but we rebelled against His plan in favor of ours. 
By the way, how's that been working out for us?
Fear not. Jesus promised He would come again to find the faithful:

Many prophets, and Christ himself, spoke about the Last Days before His Second Coming, and how there would be a dramatic separation of the Faithful and the Unfaithful. He said:
"As were the days of Noah, so it will be with the coming of the Son of man... before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark... They did not know until the flood came and swept them all away; so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left. Watch, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 
"Concerning that day and hour, no one knows. Not even the angels of haven, nor the son, but the Father only." - Matthew 24:36-44
Beware of false prophets who say they know when our salvation will come. 

It's a common misunderstanding of many Jews and Christians that only lives of passivity and nonviolence are acceptable to God. But this is false. Many Romans and Israelites in every strata of society became Christians of stature. Christ was Jewish, a rabbi, and the word "Christian" didn't exist until after his mission was completed.

Soldiers, police, and others whose occupation is in law enforcement are an essential part of all civilized societies. Faith in the Lord will open Heaven's door to all of us:

The Centurion whose servant was healed was a friend to the Jews and their priests. He even built a synagogue for them (Luke 1-10).

Note: Christ supposedly said, "The meek shall inherit the earth" in his Sermon on the Mount. The original Aramaic word he used has been mistranslated as meek. Humble is a much better translation.

"Ask God, and you will receive. Knock on His door, and it will be opened to you."

The New Moralists Are Attacking Without Mercy

In the last twenty years a very alarming switch has taken place in society, globally.  In 1999, so-called Liberals and Leftists loudly condemned religious moralists for being divisive and conceited. They called them "judgmental hypocrites" because nobody could live up to the standards of "Christian morality", they claimed.
Liberal-Leftists acknowledged that President Bill Clinton had indulged himself sexually with a young intern in the White House, had been unfaithful to Hillary for decades, was suspected of rape, and lied about it publicly and under oath. Clinton was disbarred, and cannot practice law anymore. But they insisted that his bad morals hadn't kept him from becoming a very good Chief Executive. Liberal-Leftists and his wife Hillary rallied to Bill Clinton's side, and to the sides of all men and women whose weak morals offended people of faith - as long as they were Liberal-Leftists. Mercy for the guilty was demanded - except for "judgmental" Christians. Being "judgmental" was a crime in itself, they lectured.
Bill Clinton and his wife are heroes to Liberal-Leftists, even legends, today.  

Now those same Liberal-Leftists are screaming nonstop that all who disagree with them are "evil racists!... homophobes!... misogynists!... Nazis!... haters!... divisive!... tyrants!" President Donald Trump hasn't committed any crime or offense equal to Bill Clinton's, but Trump is "Hitler!... liar!... fascist!... criminal deviant!... Russian agent!... traitor!" Numerous federal investigations over two years failed to find even one offense committed by President Trump.

Not only have these Liberal-Leftists switched places with people of faith in God, they condemn believers in God for being "unscientific!... ignorant liars!... stupid!... deplorable!" Only those who agree with the new globalist philosophy of surrender to the socialist UN, EU, and world government can escape the Liberal-Leftist social media mob. Everyone who doesn't love them risks being fired from their careers, condemned in public, and ruined financially. They call it "social justice", but mercy (which should always temper justice) is not to be extended to offenders. Mercy is a word you'll never hear them utter, unless one of their own is guilty.

These Leftist-Liberals are openly atheist, even anti-theist, and pro-murder of the innocent; both in and out of the womb. They recogize nothing as holy or sacred. They claim a moral high ground that doesn't exist. They're declaring that they are gods who can decide at any time which behaviors are good or evil, and their standard changes constantly. 
Take a long look at the cities run by Liberal-Leftists: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Detroit, and Portland. Overseas, look at Paris, Cologne, Naples, Malmo, and Glasgow. All of these and more have seen soaring crime rates, homelessness, human waste, and needles in the streets. Misery always thrives along with Liberal-Leftist ideas. These people destroy everything they touch.
Their works are nothing less than a war on God the Lawgiver, Judge, and Creator of All.

God hates moralists, and Jesus fiercely warned the moralists of his time that they were worse by far than the sinners they condemned, and in grave danger of damnation. His parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man (Luke 16:19-31) is very clear on this:
Lazarus is a beggar who lives in the street, and daily the Rich Man walks by in all his luxurious finery, smugly congratulating himself that he's successful, not like Lazarus. 
A day comes when they both die, and Lazarus is taken up to paradise, while the rich man descends, wailing, into a fiery pit. 
Worse than the Rich Man are the priests of Jesus' time and ours, who often live by the book, doing all the right things outwardly, but inside they harbor all kinds of ungodly thoughts and feelings. Watch Jesus speak to the High Priests of Solomon's Temple:

We will never be able to buy our way into Heaven and God's good graces. Only by cultivating love in our hearts, love for one another, love for God and His creation; the kind of love that forgives almost anything; will we be invited into Paradise.
Who actually does the will of God? What is the will of our Creator? The answer comes when we learn to love God as a generous and loving parent who wishes only the very best for us:

Know God's love, and obey His requests. If we don't, we'll end up like the bitter, angry, and miserable moralists.

One God, One Creator, One Lawgiver, and One Judge

Astrophysicists are in nearly-full agreement that the entire immensity of our visible cosmos -13.5 billion light-years in size, and consisting of billions of galaxies and multi-trillions of stars - began at one spot in a titanic Big Bang. Space and time began. Moreover, we can see through the Hubble Space Telescope that the entire framework and structure is an identical whole that obeys exactly the same mathematical laws of physics, chemistry, and optics. That is, a galaxy of stars at one end behaves exactly the same way as another galaxy at the other end, 13 billion light years away.  The Creator of the Universe has no peer and no equal; He creates one set of laws, and is the only Judge of all that is. 

Why is God called "He" in the Bible? That's a very good question, and here's the answer:

Why is our modern world always on the brink of chaos and destruction? We know the answer. We worship many false gods; there are many creators making abominable things; we have countless laws which are contradictory; and too many judges with no integrity or knowledge. There is corruption of every kind and it is deep. Earth is a place where the worthless, ruthless and lightweight rise to the top.
There are some exceptions, of course. Some worthy people have some authority. But they face constant and stiff opposition, sometimes even death to accomplish worthwhile things.

There is very little agreement on how the world should be organized, and what its true purpose is. Should an elite class run it for their benefit, the way China, Russia, the EU and UN run their empires? Or should it be organized so that the best and brightest people of any class, ethnicity, or race have maximum opportunity to create and succeed individually? Many say, "Forget about it. Let's blow it on a good time." Your feelings about this are highly dependent on your wealth and status, which insulate you from the suffering of others.

Furthermore, should the moral codes of Judaeo-Christianity have ultimate power to decide questions of law and governance? Or are those traditional values, laws, rules, and methods outdated in our computer age?
For centuries this issue was largely settled, and the western world was the model for successful societies based on ethical monotheism; individual liberty, free markets, religious freedom, and human rights. 
Wealth beyond the dreams of previous generations was created, and technology flourished. Electricity, motion pictures, steam transport around the globe, airplanes, automobiles, radio, and enormous advances in medicine and psychiatry were accomplished in one generation between 1840 and 1910. Machines did more and more of the drudgery people had to slog through before. Many thinkers preached that war was unnecessary and obsolete now that such prosperity and exciting technology was coming into use. Sadly, weapons also became vastly more effective.

Serious doubts about the meaning of life crept in at the end of the 19th Century, and the phrase "God is dead" became popular. Science and technology were more and more thought to be worthy successors to God.

Something went terribly wrong in the years leading up to 1914, and the psychosis (Link) of totalitarianism took root and flourished in the eastern hemisphere. Germany provoked WWI. In response to the war's chaos, Marxist communism began destroying human lives and freedoms in Russia, and began spreading to China and Southeast Asia. In reaction to this the Japanese Empire quickly rose in bloody opposition, followed by Germany and the Nazi Party. Judaeo-Christianity was being murdered by these hostile philosophies, and people of faith suffered most. They were targeted for being "uncooperative... undesirable."
By the end of the 20th Century, over 100 million people had died in secular wars and persecution. Perhaps a billion were wounded physically or psychologically. More people died in these secular, anti-theistic wars than died in all the previous religious wars of human history combined. 

Today more than ever we worship the false gods of power, money, sex, youth, science, and reason. But if we worship them, we're disconnected from God. This inevitably leads to the insanity that plagues us. Only the invisible Creator of all things is worthy of worship. All other powers, rulers and things are beneath Him.

The Satanic force behind all these events has grown and thrived ever since. It's stronger than ever and undaunted by its broken promises, failures, massive suffering and chaos. In truth, chaos and suffering is its goal, and it always delivers. Most of us never learn that this evil is rooted within us. It's often called "sin", but is greatly misunderstood:

The true nature of this evil is the most important subject there is in life. Discussion about it inevitably leads to the unfashionable subject of evil's opposite, God. Satan must be real, or our good God and father doesn't exist.
People are extremely reluctant to talk about God and Evil and they invent dodges of a dozen different kinds to avoid it. They're afraid, and they cover their fear by humor, ridicule, intellectual gymnastics, anger, or utter silence. 
Their fear is understandable, because it's daunting and enervating to contemplate an intelligent, deathless, and powerfully malevolent spirit capable of killing innocents and strangling the whole planet with octopus-like tentacles. 
Most of us can't survive the battle against it (and they know it in their hearts), because they don't have the holy armor, weapons, and spiritual protection we've acquired. But they can acquire them with a little faith here: Apostle Paul, Ephesians 6:10-20.

We - that is, you who read this and believe it - and our millions of compatriots globally are like special forces that have been training our whole lives for this day. "We are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world; the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age." -Paul, Ephesians.

God can annihilate evil in an instant, but He allows it to exist for purposes we'll never fully understand in this life. But it makes heroes of us if we come to God. We'll know it all in the next life and celebrate forever. Meanwhile, we just need to finish our jobs and wait patiently for salvation. 

This author has never been able to let sleeping dogs lie and just live life in blind acceptance that such a state of affairs can or should be allowed to go on and on, without a final resolution. This is a war worth fighting more than any war ever waged. Fortunately, it turns out that there always has been a plan for ending it all with a rebirth of righteous justice and mercy for all who participate with good will, see Isaiah 53.
Christ's life, death, resurrection and return were foretold almost seven centuries before he was born.

From this day forth, trust that we're going to see things we never dreamed of or thought possible. Our nation and our generous spirit has been slandered, beaten, scourged, and crucified for years now. It's time for a Resurrection, and it will happen in some way we can't fathom, rest assured. 

One thing to keep in mind regarding the understanding of evil is this: the wicked believe they are good. Humans need to believe they're righteous. They're convinced - or beaten into silence to act in every way the evil and profane spirit dictates - that God and the idea of God is true evil.

A useful allegory says that God in His realm is acting upon our world much like a producer of fine metals and tools of every kind; constructing artful and miraculous creations. But they're not dead things. They have life and consciousness - self-awareness - just as we do.
In order to operate, ores and other raw materials are brought into God's furnaces and laboratories for preparation and purification. There are countless workers in God's factory-universe. What we see as evil are the acids and toxic chemicals that force the separation of valuable metals from the worthless dross. 
Then the metals are shaped and forged by white hot temperatures and blows by the hundreds or thousands, which force the atoms of the substances into new lattices, much like the finest steels have. But more than that are the precious metals and substances we can't understand. This video, an introduction to the PBS series The Crown, is a credible illustration of that process:

Here's a video about the nature of the visible evil we sometimes see. It's long, but you only need to see the first 20 minutes or so to get an idea. Warning: it's disturbing at times. Magicians in past ages often advertised that their powers were given to them by the devil. This author never gave any credence to such claims until recently.

These magicians' tricks in every case are trivial - in the large scheme of things. They don't cure people, do real good, or change the evil course of the world. They perform stunts that demonstrate the suspension of physical limitations, as if to say, "Look at me, I'm immune to God's law." Then why not cure someone's cancer, or broken spine? 
No, their job is to deceive, and persuade the audiences that they too can be lawless.
God has always promised us that this age would come. Be joyful if you are on His side. Wonderful things are coming to light.

"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also", Jesus said. God is a treasure beyond measure.  (Matthew 6:21). 

"The mind is its own place, and by itself can make a Hell of Heaven or a Heaven of Hell"  -  Milton
