“We will continue to fight these battles. It’s a never ending struggle… until the Rapture, be part of it, be in the fight.” – Mike Pompeo, God and Country Rally at Summit Church, Wichita, KS, June 28, 2015
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” – Matthew 5:9
“…WAR WITHOUT END, AMEN.” – Christian Zionist prayer
I want to start this off by illustrating the great dichotomy between the teachings of Jesus Christ and a majority of his modern day American “followers”. The top quote is from Zionist evangelical warmonger Mike Pompeo, a couple of years before he became the head of the CIA, later becoming Secretary of State under President Trump. Pompeo is referring to the perpetual wars being waged in the Middle East. Wars that bloodthirsty Christians believe must be waged against the Muslim world for the benefit of Israel and to help usher in the Second Coming of Christ. The bottom quote is taken from Gospel according to Matthew when Jesus Christ taught his Sermon on the Mount.
I want to admit right off the bat that there was a period in my life when I believed and had the same attitude as most American Christians have today towards war and the Muslim world. It was part of the reason why, as a young and naive 18 year old, I joined the military to “do my part” in the fight in the so-called “holy war” that was being waged in the Middle East. As a young Christian and serviceman, I wholeheartedly believed in the lies and false heretical doctrine of C. I. Scofield and John Darby’s Dispensational Futurism. The church that I attended back home with my parents taught this heretical Zionist doctrine which is based on egregious misinterpretation of scripture and prophesy. I distinctly remember shortly after 9/11, how the pastor of our church told the congregation that we were going into the end times, and that one of the last great battles that was prophesied was a war between Christians and Muslims. It’s a “prophesy” that I still cannot find in the Bible to this day. I remember it being said and repeated that the Antichrist was going to come from the Middle East, and that he would reveal himself to the world wearing a blue turban. Many people believed that Osama Bin-Laden was possibly this Antichrist. The Left Behind series of books were at their peak popularity among the American evangelical world. The timing was not coincidental. At the dawn of the 21st Century, millions of people believed that the “Rapture” was imminent, and that the events that were happening in the world were all part of “God’s plan” before the Rapture and the Great Tribulation that was to follow. I believed in all of this back around 2004-2006. It wasn’t until many years later, after much research, that I came to the conclusion that this whole doctrine is probably one of the greatest deceptions that has ever been pulled over the eyes of the Western Christian world. I found that our real enemies, who follow the Luciferian philosophy, deify man as god on this earth and are planning to wipe out any population that does not forsake their religion and embrace the New Age secular humanist religion of the New World Order. I found that they absolutely hate Christianity and that Christians are the number one target slated for extermination in the future, along with the rest of the major world religions. Over the years, as I was digging all of this out, I came to the conclusion that this whole “Rapture” theory was really a deception designed to make Christians docile and apathetic so that they would not put up any kind of resistance to what is coming in the future. It was in fact, a doctrine that was unheard of in the church until the late 1800’s when Scofield and Darby came into the picture. I’ll get more into this in a future article. The Bible makes no mention of a “Pre-Tribulation Rapture”, in fact, it’s quite the opposite; the followers of Christ will endure tribulation and have been enduring tribulation for centuries. There are Christians in the Middle East, especially in Palestine and Iraq, that are enduring great tribulation right this very second. Many antichrists have come and gone over the centuries, all connected to the same Beast System. Over the years, I’ve personally heard Christians state that what is happening in America was predicted in the Bible, and that we must not resist God’s plan. They quote Romans 13 whenever the subject of government tyranny comes up, and they wholeheartedly believe Christians must not resist government. I, for one, am very grateful that our Christian forebears that lived in the American Colonies didn’t have the same slavish attitude that a majority of American Christians have today. Our nation would have never been born had they thought that Romans 13 meant to obey King George III no matter what.
In my research, I found that the leading “Christian” proponents of this doctrine were either highly degreed members of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry or the Knights Templar, and had a deep affinity to the State of Israel. People like Tim LaHaye, Pat Robertson, John Hagee and their cronies have pacified the American evangelical community with this doctrine. Most Christians are now completely disarmed physically, mentally, and spiritually to deal with what is coming in the future. Jesus told his disciples in Luke 22:36 to keep a sword ready for self-defense from persecution. It amazes me how many Christians have never read that passage. Their attitude is: “Don’t worry about the evil in the world, we’ll all be raptured out before it gets bad.” The indifference of modern American evangelicals is selective, however. On the one hand, they are indifferent to the coming New World Order and subversion of their liberties and constitutional republican form of government, but on the other hand, they take a front row seat promoting America’s wars of aggression being waged in the Middle East. They’ll support any pro-Israel/pro-war politician with great fervor and vociferously oppose anyone, like former Congressman Ron Paul, who believes in a non-aggressive/non-interventionist foreign policy. The staunch support of war and aggression by evangelicals is going to be the primary focus of this post.
After 9/11, a fever rose among the American evangelical community. The fever started out as fear; a fear so strong that they were eager to hand President Bush and the government their freedoms on a silver platter in the name of “safety” and “security”. Fear then begat hatred; hatred of the external enemy that the government said attacked the country. That hatred then swelled to the point where those that professed the Prince of Peace were wanting blood. The American Christian war fever was now up and hasn’t subsided since. It still, to this day, puzzles me how a population that was so eager to give up their freedom in exchange for the “security” of Big Brother back in 2001, have been enthusiastically saying for the last 18 years that our military is in the Middle East defending our freedom. It makes about as much sense as 2+2=5. But I digress.
It is now 2020, and we are en route to a head-on collision with Iran. Even though things seem to have subsided for now after the recent tit for tat between the U.S. and Iran, I personally believe that war is still on the agenda and is inevitable. Israel has longed for it; the Zionist neocons in the U.S. government have longed for it; and the Christian Zionists in America have been longing for it as well. It will be another battlefront in the series of wars of aggression that the U.S. and its New World Order allies have been waging for almost 20 years now. Israel has been the greatest benefactor of these American led wars, and I’ve documented in a previous post how our military is really just an Israeli proxy army. Most Christians falsely believe that God will bless us if we support Israel. Israel was created in 1948 under our blessing by the United Nations and the Zionist Rothschild Banking family. I have to say, that since 1948, our nation has been on a rapid decline. When one looks at the decline objectively, can one honestly come to the conclusion that our nation is being blessed by God? Or is America being judged by God? You come to your own conclusions, but I personally believe it’s the latter.
I find that a lot of Christians support these wars because, ultimately, they want to see Armageddon happen in the Middle East. They believe that a major nuclear war would ultimately force God’s hand and thus usher in the events leading up to the Second Coming of Christ. But they don’t have to worry because they’ll be “raptured” out before it all takes place. I get a strange feeling that the likes of Pastor John Hagee really just want to play God. These Zionist zealots would love to see the Middle East (except Israel) go up in mushroom clouds thereby fulfilling “prophesy”, as if God really needs their help. This false doctrine is extremely dangerous since a lot of our own leaders, like Mike Pompeo, believe in it. They are itching to take the next step towards this great war in the Middle East that, I fear, will ultimately lead to the total destruction of the continental United States if we’re not careful. I ask then dear Christian Zionist, do you think Jesus would ultimately approve of all this? Do you really think that the Lord needs our forced “help” in fulfilling His plan? Have you not read Acts 1:7, or really any of the Bible for that matter? Why has your heart turned to hatred and blood lust?
For the record, I am not a pacifist; I just simply believe in the non-aggression principle. There is a time to fight, and that is only when an enemy initiates force against us. These wars we are waging in the Middle East are illegal, immoral, unjust and racist wars of aggression, all being carried out for the benefit of a tiny elite. None of these countries we have bombed, put troops in, and slapped sanctions on ever initiated any overt force against our country. These wars have all been preemptive and based upon lies. I stand against aggression in all it’s forms, whether it be in form of war or economic sanctions, against a country that never initiated a hostile act against us.
Christ, himself, was a proponent of the non-aggression principle. He rebuked his disciple Peter in Matthew 26:52-54 for cutting the ear off an unarmed servant of the high priest during his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane:
52 Then said Jesus unto him: put up again thy sword unto his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. (Emphasis mine)
53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
Jesus was rebuking Peter’s act of aggression against the servant. Instead of having faith and understanding of what Christ was to fulfill, Peter acted out in rage and drew his sword in an act of aggression to prevent the arrest of Jesus. Do not get confused with what Jesus said in Luke 22:36, for he knew that his followers would be persecuted after he was gone, and that they must have a sword for self-defense only. Applying this principle, the weapons I own are for the natural right of defense of my life, liberty, and property. They will never be taken up in an offensive or an aggressive manner, at least when they are in my hands. It’s high time that this principle be applied to America’s military and its weapons.
Jesus also said in Matthew 5:43-44:
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of evangelicals are seething with hatred towards the Muslim world. As I said above, their hatred has given way to an unquenchable thirst for blood. This, again, is totally contrary to the teachings of Christ.
Pastor Chuck Baldwin of Liberty Fellowship in Kalispell, MT, has been sounding the alarm for years about this blood lust of the American evangelical population:
“I tried to warn listeners of my radio talk show on how then President George W. Bush was turning Christian people throughout the United States into warmongers. Because Bush claimed to be a born-again Christian and had successfully garnered the support of so many conservative evangelical Christians, he was able to shift the entire spiritual paradigm of the country. But that’s what wolves in sheep’s clothing do. Phony Christians do more destruction than overt unbelievers. Phony conservatives do more destruction than overt liberals.”
Hear, hear! There’s so much truth in that statement and one of the greatest examples of such is the blind allegiance to Donald Trump by conservative Christians and the patriot movement today. I’ve said in the past that Trump is the ultimate Trojan Horse, and the fools are sleeping as the enemy soldiers take over the city. He goes on:
“But in the eyes of the so-called Religious Right, ANY war a Republican president sends the U.S. military into is a just war—no matter how unjust the war really is. Evangelical Christian pastors are unabashed apologists for war. It is safe to say that a majority of conservative Christians have become rabid warmongers. They cheer for war; they promote war; they glorify war; they worship those who wage war; and they enthusiastically vote for neocons like Lindsey Graham and John McCain because of their support for war.”
“The spirit of war will never be extinguished from our country until it is first extinguished from our churches. A sizeable percentage of all of the evangelical/fundamentalist churches in America today are splits and splinters off of other churches. Christians will fight at the drop of a hat. They will split a church at the drop of a hat. They are filled with the spirit of war.” Source
I believe Pastor Baldwin is spot on about American Christians and their churches. I also believe he is correct to say that these wars of aggression are very much propped up by the large evangelical community who absolutely love war and the war machine. If the Jesus’ message of peace was really being preached from the pulpits across America, and those professing to be followers of Christ adhered to it, then I highly doubt we would be at war right now. It all starts at home and in the churches. French historian Alexis de Tocqueville famously stated after his trip to the early American Republic:
“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”
I know some, if not most, will disagree with me on this, but I firmly believe that only a righteous and virtuous population that live by the truth and adhere to the principles of liberty will save America, not a president. It especially won’t be saved by a population of warmongers that support the endless crusade of murder and oppression of other nations overseas.
I want to digress here for a minute, because I think this is important and needs to be addressed since nobody is speaking the truth about it. Most people I’ve interacted with in my daily life this past week might as well have their TV’s plugged into the back of their heads, because all I hear from them is the parroted talking points from the purveyors of Washington D.C. propaganda like CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and Fox News. I’ve tuned into the mainstream media this past week and heard countless “journalists” and pundits, along with Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeatedly refer to Iran as “the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism”. Oh really? Did they sponsor ISIS? What about Al-Qaeda? What about the fact that the Iranian general they assassinated was actually instrumental to defeating ISIS in Syria and Iraq? In fact ISIS just put out a message thanking Donald Trump, through their official newspaper Al Naba, for taking him out! Left that little fact out didn’t they? Who was responsible for the rise of Al-Qaeda then later ISIS? Do your research, the answer will surprise you, or if you’re like me it probably won’t surprise you. Then read George Orwell’s 1984. The real enemy was never Eurasia or Emmanuel Goldstein, it was always Big Brother.
Pompeo, Pence and Trump are lying through their teeth about Iran. Yet the MAGA cult still follows the Judas goat unwavering:
I firmly believe that the sun is setting on the American Empire. Our fall is inevitable and the whole world knows it except us. We tend to think that we’re invincible and that nobody can touch us, but history has proven otherwise. The Bible is replete with examples of God’s righteous judgement upon unjust and aggressive individuals and nations. I pray that He may have mercy upon us, but I echo Thomas Jefferson’s sentiment:
“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
