Two Great Forces Move Us the Most; Fear and Love


Love makes us feel that our lives have meaning, are good, and that others are our friends and allies. There's no better feeling in the world than being in love. We will go to great lengths for people we love, sometimes even sacrificing our lives for them. Fear is the opposite. Fear tells us that we're doomed to lose everything we love, even our very  existence. For the religious among us, fear tells us our eternal lives will be torment. 

Tyrants and other criminals know that fear is an easy tool to acquire and wield against others, and love is much more difficult if not impossible; especially if you're inclined to crime and your intentions are evil. Making others love us is possible, but requires great skill. True love, though, has a life of its own and can't be easily manipulated. So fear is the common, foolproof option if you want others to bend to your will. 

The stakes are immense in our modern world. Power, money, status, and sex are the earthly reward. Any expert at pretending to love - and willing to ruthlessly use fear to manipulate people - can rise quickly in politics. History is bursting with the names of infamous leaders who rose to the highest heights. A few hung onto absolute power until death, even after murdering a hundred million of their own citizens. Mao Tse Tung and Josef Stalin head that list. But most of the evil geniuses who attained that power destroyed themselves, their people, their nations, and everyone else who effectively got in their way. 

Our globe today is gripped by a fear so deep that it's ruining our lives and civilization. Billions are convinced that invisible threats are killing off all life on earth. The only people who disagree are faithful believers in the God of all Creation. This good and all-powerful Lord owns the universe and has a plan for everyone who honors Him. Not only will His people have life, but they will have eternal riches, power, beauty, joy, and a goodness we can barely imagine. Worldly riches are cruel fakes and counterfeits compared to God's gifts. 

This great and good Creator has an enemy, the Anti-Christ; Satan; who is bent on destroying the greatest of all His creations: faithful men and women. This enemy is a master of lies and fear, and he's using science to do it; or rather, our weak  understanding of science. Science isn't a Bible, it's an ongoing process of study, testing, theorizing, proving, and disproving. Often, scientific certainties like gravity are proven real; but then new discoveries show that there are many more dimensions to it than we knew. There's no such thing as "settled science", especially in very complex arenas like the weather, climate, virology, nuclear physics, biology, and so on. We need to think of the "scientific process" as a staircase leading ever upward. There's no Science Heaven we can ever attain on earth where everything is finally known, categorized, and finished. Only religion offers eternal and immutable Truth. God alone can grant us eternal knowledge in Paradise:


Several things mark the Satanic view of science. First, it's atheistic, and often anti-theistic; God-hating. Proponents have a fatal pride and assurance that everything they say cannot be questioned. Second, the greatest fears these people have are from invisible forces like gases (CO2, hydrocarbons, radon); viruses and bacteria; radiation (nuclear, solar, electromagnetic); and genetic variations formed in labs to enhance plant fertility and nutrition (GMO foods). Ordinary people can't see these threats, and with so much money available, it's easy to bribe those who would tell the truth about the scam. 

Leftist politics has spawned a trillion-dollar industry of fear-mongering - through media manipulation - which funnels government, industry, and private monies into rackets that are acquiring totalitarian power over the whole world. "Every great cause becomes a movement, becomes a business, and degenerates into a racket." - Eric Hoffer.  

Literal panic is seizing huge mobs of unthinking citizens in every country who are then manipulated into voting for and electing the minions of the Anti-Christ. Trillions of dollars are being stolen or thrown away on "climate change technologies", "infrastructure enhancements", and "anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-bigotry, and anti-transphobic" reparations; i.e., payoffs. It's the greatest criminal movement in history. 

Here's the testimony of one of the original founders of Greenpeace, one of the earliest of these panic-generating rackets:

Forgiveness Is A Two-Way Street

What if you were the child of a loving, wealthy, kind, and powerful family, but had become separated from them at birth by some catastrophe? Let's say you were born in a country - like Russia - which had revolted against the one where your mother, father, and family lived - like the United States. And now these two nations are in a hot war. 

So you had been cut off from them your whole impoverished life. The entire time you thought you were an orphan. You did what you had to do to survive, sometimes committing violent crimes. Everyone in your country had done the same. Only recently did you discover the truth of your birth, when a messenger delivered documents and proofs that you were a blood relative of this great family. Now they desperately want you back, even with full knowledge of the guilt you bear, but you're angry. Why did they wait so long to find you? Would they really want you if they knew everything you had done? How could you ever fit in? 

There are a lot of secret reports from the battlefront, and the carnage is terrible. Millions of soldiers on both sides are involved, but your country is doomed, sooner or later. Many of the dead soldiers you knew, and some you grew up with. When,  and if, your compatriots find out you're actually a blood-member of the U.S. side, they will accuse you of spying and hang you. 
The messenger prevailed and returned a message to the family that your sense of hurt and anger was the only reason for delay. 

A few days later another stealthy messenger came through the lines and handed you one last note from the Pater Familias; the head of the family. It reads, "I know your hurt and pain, which are very familiar to me, but forgiveness is a two way street. I have forgiven every transgression of yours. Can you not forgive the pain I allowed to be given you? Just know that I have reasons you'll never understand in this life, only in your eternal life to come, why your suffering was necessary and accrues to your entire benefit, one-hundred fold."  

This, good readers, is exactly the situation you and I and all faithful people are in. A huge war is raging, and will soon be over. Can we not forgive the Creator of all life, and trust that He knows what He's doing? Trust in Scripture, particularly the Apostle Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 2:

The Man of Lawlessness [Satan]
"Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God..... and he will work [dark] miracles..."

There are benefits for believing in God that you may not have thought about:


We only have a limited time to act and save our souls and spirits. Don't procrastinate. Consider how timely this song was in 1969 when it first hit the charts:

Watch For The Lux Aeterna, The Eternal Light

Time is short for us. We know something isn't right. Nobody feels entirely safe in the world now, regardless of nationality, income, power, or social status. There are threats of every kind and from every direction, by design. Some are real, but most are contrived lies that you can't verify. We're living in a black hurricane of lies and condemnation. But there is a lighthouse out there, sending its beams cutting through the storm. Go to it. There you will find sanctuary and nourishment. "As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you", Isaiah 66:13. 

The Prince of This World, Lucifer, wants you to be fearful and panicked because you can then be persuaded to do things you would never agree ordinarily to do.  You can be controlled much more easily if your self-confidence is damaged or destroyed. And even more so if you're shamed into believing you're a racist, a hater, a homophobe, or a capitalist. 
Satan is "The father of lies, a murderer." Jesus, John 8:44.  He's an accuser who won't shut up or admit that he lies. 

Until recently in the western world we were entitled to the assumption of innocence, and an accuser had to present verifiable evidence in a court that you were guilty of something. But not anymore. The weapon of shame is being wielded by sociopathic individuals and authorities that command you to prove yourself innocent, or be condemned. 
This is evil, because in our modern social network world, your life can be instantly destroyed by others using false accusations, and evidence that exonerates you can't wipe away the stain of a lie. It's hard to believe, but true, that our images, all our writings, and many of our documents are stored in the internet forever. They will never go away, by God's design. 

Our present age was prophesied a very long time ago by the Lord Himself; not just the disasters, but the great opportunities we have for joy in Heaven.  
Pray to Him now, as if your eternal life, and the lives of those you love, depend on it. They do, and yours does also. 
Understand this. Our Creator's universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it's stranger than we can imagine.

When you pray with your eyes closed, look for God's Eternal Light, His Lux Aeterna. This tells you He is near. Some see it as golden light, and others white, or lime green; but it's a cool light, not a glare. Light that hurts is not from the Lord. Ask God for His True Light. 
The masses of people are marching into darkness, or a glare they think is safe for them, but it's definitely not. It's The Pit of Inferno. 

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Jesus, John 8:12

This will give you the feeling of the Lux Aeterna:

                    VOCES8. Lux Aeterna - by Edward Elgar

Latin words:  Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Translation: May light eternal shine upon them, O Lord, with Your saints forever, for You are kind. Eternal rest give to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

We live in two worlds, simultaneously. The world we see outside ourselves, the one we were born into, is real enough to make us think it's the only one we inhabit. But that is a grave error. If a good God exists, there must be an afterlife where judgment is rendered and recompense takes place.

Our inner world; our thoughts, daydreams, sleeping dreams, and imaginations have potential reality. When our bodies of flesh die, what is left? It's then that we inhabit the other, invisible world. Which is why now, today, is the time when we must move toward God, Truth, and Wisdom.
This is why Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world", "The kingdom of God is within you", and, "You must be born again [into this inner world]".

This author has often felt the sting of pain and persecution, even to the breaking point, and has appealed to God for answers. He answered my prayers, saying, "I have forgiven much in you. Will you not forgive me? I have important reasons for allowing your suffering that you can't understand while you're on earth. But the time will come when you'll see how it worked for you and all my people's benefit. Be patient, and you will see it."

The Anti-Christ Has Arrived: You Have A Choice Which Will Determine Your Eternal Destiny; Hell Or Heaven?

Whether you are an atheist or a person of faith, you know that our modern, extremely complex world is multi-layered. Many different sets of people have enormous power over us, and many of them don't care at all about those who don't have power. Generally, these people have good intentions, but they have no wisdom at all. They are fools, and they don't know it. Evil is the inevitable consequence of fools with power.
Fortunately, there are sets of people who do care, and deeply. They have the wisdom of the Ancients, and they understand the immutable laws of human behavior. God Almighty uses them to counterbalance the fools who would already have destroyed the world if He had not intervened. Their latest effort is called The Great Reset, and it will alter global society totally. Religious freedom will be crushed as well as basic human rights - ownership of property, for example - and it's totalitarianism with a smiley face. God will have no place in our lives:  The Great Reset
We are at a critical point now, and our Creator is sick of watching the horror show going on globally. An immense reckoning is at hand. What you decide to do from this day forward, right or wrong, will determine where you spend your eternal life. Start now with jealousy, and see where, or if, you've damaged others by it.

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. Believe in Truth, the unalterable order of the universe, and its many forms. The laws of gravity, motion, inertia, and mathematics are proof that Truth is real. Anyone who believes this has a moral compass that will point to the Truth, just as an ordinary compass points to true north.

The Most High God rules in a celestial court with the Elohim, powerful and mysterious entities we mortals on earth can barely 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. 
His most dangerous weapon is the lie. He's known as "the father of all lies". When you see people lying and never being called out for their lies, you know you're in the presence of Evil. Healthy people always value deeds and results over false promises and flowery language. "A good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit."  Luke 6:43

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.
Merry Christmas! The miracle of Jesus' birth has lost much of its luster in our modern, so-called 'scientific'  world, but the truth is there's much more to it than you can imagine, and it's well-documented. Take a look at this:
 The true story behind Christ's birth

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. 
Update,  Jan. 7, 2021, On the Wuhan virus "pandemic":

In the entire world there are 7.8 BILLION people.
There are 87,395,292 Chinese virus cases (fewer than 88 MILLION cases) in the world.
1,885,197 people have died from it in the whole world (fewer than 1.9 MILLION deaths).
62,917, 981 people HAVE RECOVERED from the Chinese virus (almost 63 MILLION people).
For this we've crashed the world economy, wiping out many TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS of value, creating starvation in poor countries, economic ruin, a global recession, or worse. Suicides, bankruptcies, spousal abuse, and retarded growth of school children are barely mentioned. The "cure" for the Wuhan virus is worse than the virus itself. 
This whole pandemic fiasco is an evil lie.  Look at this:

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:
