CHRISTIAN VS SECULAR PERCEPTION
This article will speak in depth to two perceptions of President George Bush. On the one hand, many genuinely fundamental, Born Again Christians believe the President is also Born Again, reads his Bible and prays daily. These people generally support him in nearly everything he does turning a willfully blind eye to any action he takes which is inconsistent with Christian values. Even when confronted with the facts detailing all the evil fruits committed by this President, these Christian leaders make excuses as to why Bush committed these evil deeds, rather than allowing these facts to open their spiritual eyes as Jesus stipulated (Matt 7:16)
Further, these Christians have long ago so wrapped themselves in the American flag that they are conditioned to believe that they must support this President in his aggressive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Too many preachers who intoned from the pulpit before the invasion that Bush was right about getting rid of dangerous Saddam because his WMD have conveniently not told their congregations that no WMD ever existed.
These preachers still are urging their young men to join the military because these wars are "Just" wars. Such preachers steadfastly refuse to look at world events in light of Bible prophecy and so have missed completely the fact that Bush's invasions in the Middle East are fulfilling prophecy, especially regarding Iraq's End of the Age final judgment as foretold in Isaiah 13 (NEWS1804).
To these misguided pastors, President Bush is a sparkling example of a good Christian President, one worthy of full support. But, as Cutting Edge began reporting a few years ago, the President was virtually coronated as de facto leader of the Christian Right! As we reported in NEWS1596:
NEWS BRIEF: "Religious right finds its center in oval office: Bush emerges as movement's leader after Robertson leaves Christian Coalition", by Dana Milbank, Washington Post Staff Writer, Monday, December 24, 2001, Page A02
"Pat Robertson's resignation this month as president of the Christian Coalition confirmed the ascendance of a new leader of the religious right in America: George W. Bush. For the first time since religious conservatives became a modern political movement, the president of the United States has become the movement's de facto leader ... Christian publications, radio and television shower Bush with praise, while preachers from the pulpit treat his leadership as an act of providence. A procession of religious leaders who have met with him testify to his faith, while Web sites encourage people to fast and pray for the president."
It is truly amazing that a man can so completely deceived and hoodwink an entire nation of Christian believers based only on flimsy words and public photo-op Prayer Breakfasts; Bush has virtually no spiritual fruits to back up his claim, and yet most Christians fervently believe.
Once the Illuminati has sunk their hook tightly in the jaws of unsuspecting Christians, they began to maneuver the perception of the secular, non-Christian world.
SECULAR AND NON-CHRISTIAN PERCEPTION
The secular and non-Christian people look at President Bush's war in Iraq and Afghanistan and his deliberate eroding of our internal freedoms as the outworking of his radical Christian beliefs. Remember the flap caused when President Reagan supposedly said he believed in the Battle of Armageddon? The Mass Media immediately jumped on this statement, trying to scare the peoples of the world that Reagan might actually plunge the United States into a nuclear war against the U.S.S.R.
You see, TV anchors immediately redefined what "Armageddon" was, making it into a nuclear conflict at the End of the Age. Christians who knew their Bibles realized immediately that this redefinition was wrong, since Jesus will turn the conflict between Himself and Satan into a slaughter; He will speak one word and the entire massed armies surrounding Jerusalem will be slaughtered -- no battle, and certainly no nuclear war. (Rev 16:13-16 speaks to the massing of the armies while Rev 19:11-21 describes the horrific slaughter.)
In a manner very similar to redefining what Armageddon will be, the Illuminati has also maneuvered President Bush's supposed Christianity so that Muslims, Hindus, Liberal Christians and the whole secular world believe that the only reason the President ordered the attack in Iraq and Afghanistan is because he is guided -- or shall we say, mis-guided -- by his peculiar brand of Christian eschatology.
After the disaster at Waco, I watched the news almost continuously for 36 hours. On the afternoon of the following day, my blood ran cold as I listened to President Clinton comment on the radical religious beliefs of David Koresh. Blaming Koresh completely for the Waco conflagration, Clinton said, "Perhaps it is time we look carefully at anyone who literally believes the Book of Revelation".
I took that statement as a threat to genuine believers, as I knew David Koresh was not a typical Christian, and may even have been a Manchurian Candidate (NEWS1347), a view later shared by many.
Let us now review how the rest of the world views President Bush's religious views.
NEWS BRIEF: "Eastward, evangelical soldiers!", Frontline Magazine, by VIJAY PRASHAD, India's National Magazine from the publishers of THE HINDU, February 12-25, 2005.
"U.S. evangelicalism does not represent Christianity but does represent the Bush administration's agenda for global hegemony ... In his second inaugural address, delivered on January 20, President Bush once more offered red meat to his evangelical flock. He repeated the word 'freedom' several times, once in the phrase 'untamed fire of freedom' (said in the same sentence as the phrase 'hope kindles hope'). This, like many other statements in his speech, is a favourite Biblical echo of U.S. evangelicals. They often quote the lines from the book of Jeremiah in the Bible that say, 'I will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem' (Chapter 17: Verse 27) or else 'I will kindle a fire in her towns that will consume all who are around her' (50: 32).
"In such ways, as Matt Rothschild, Editor of The Progressive put it, these 'hidden passages' send a signal to Bush's mass base, the evangelicals. In one part of the speech, Bush says: 'History also has a visible direction, set by liberty and the Author of Liberty'. The line directly refers to the Biblical phrases, 'You killed the author of life' (Acts 3:15) and, 'Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2). As Rothschild notes, 'The Author of Liberty is The Author of Life, and that author is Jesus'. Freedom, for Bush, is another way of saying 'Jesus', and the spread of freedom by the U.S. military is married then with the spread of U.S. evangelicalism by the missionaries."
In the view of this Hindu author, President Bush's foreign policies are deliberately shaped so as to attract the emotional support of Christian evangelicals, even to the point of using "hidden passages" in order to almost subliminally appeal to his core following.
When he says that the "spread of freedom by the U.S. military is married then with the spread of U.S. evangelicalism by the missionaries", he seems to insinuate that the President's current policies are aimed specifically at enhancing the teaching of missionaries through the activity of the US military. This view is exactly what many non-Christians believe: Bush's disastrous war in Iraq and Afghanistan is a direct view of his strange "Biblical" prophetic views.
As President Clinton intoned over a decade ago, "perhaps it is time to look at anyone who literally believes the Book of Revelation".
Now, let us go to another, more detailed article which is even more direct.
NEWS BRIEF: "Expose The Christian Mafia: Where Those Who Now Run the U.S. Government Came From and Where They Are Taking Us", by Wayne Madsen, Part 1.
"... I can now report on a criminal conspiracy so vast and monstrous it defies imagination. Using 'Christian' groups as tax-exempt and cleverly camouflaged covers, wealthy right-wing businessmen and 'clergy' have now assumed firm control over the biggest prize of all – the government of the United States of America."
Wayne quickly moves to dispel any notion that he is bashing genuine Christians -- just the fake ones.
"My use of the term 'Christian' is merely to clearly identify the criminal conspirators who have chosen to misuse their self-avowed devotion to Jesus Christ to advance a very un-Christian agenda. The term 'Christian Mafia' is what several Washington politicians have termed the major conspirators and it is not intended to debase Christians or infer that they are criminals ... The most important element of this story is that a destructive religious movement has now achieved almost total control over the machinery of government of the United States – its executive, its legislature, several state governments, and soon, the federal judiciary, including the U.S. Supreme Court." (Ibid.)
Madsen then reveals the name of this shadowy group -- The Fellowship, or The Family.
To the members of this group, "Jesus is a logo and a slogan for the Fellowship. Jesus is used to justify the Fellowship’s access to the highest levels of government and business in the same way Santa Claus entices children into department stores and malls during the Christmas shopping season." (Ibid.)
Correctly identifying this group as having sprung from the Nazis, he reports that they have a combination, twisted view of Jesus and prophecy.
"Its purpose has little to do with religion but everything to do with political and economic influence peddling and the reconstruction of the world in preparation for a thousand year Christian global dominion. Post-millenialist Fellowship members believe that Jesus will not return until there is a 1000-year pure Christian government established on Earth. It is this mindset that has infused the foreign policy of George W. Bush and his administration. The desire for a thousand year political dominion of the world is not new. Hitler planned for a 'Thousand Year Reich' over the planet. It is not a coincidence that Hitler desired and the so-called Christian dominionists/reconstructionists now contemplate a thousand year reign. The Christian dominionists are the political heirs of Hitler, the Norwegians Vereide and Quisling, Buchman, Opus Dei founder and fascist patron saint Josemaria Escriva and their political and religious cohorts."
At this point, I need to correct an error in the thinking of this journalist. Christian Dominion theology does not belief that a Christian global government has to be set up and operated for 1,000 years, at the end of which Jesus shall return. Rather, Dominion theology believes that Christian leaders must use their means and influence to create a global government, economy, and religion, so that Jesus can then return.
However, this slight detail must not detract from the core teaching in this matter.
The major fact is that the Fellowship group was established originally by the Illuminati and has been serving its interest since. President Bush has been manuevered into position to where secular, non-Christian peoples truly believe his disastrous policies in the Middle East flowed directly from his quirky Christian prophetic beliefs. Further, his obvious lying about Iraq's WMD is so clear to secular people, even though Christians disbelieve that Bush deliberately lied.
Now, the trap is perfectly set.
On the one hand, genuine Christians are not discerning enough to realize that President Bush has no good spiritual fruits to substantiate his claim to be Christian; therefore, they believe he is a Christian, and is conducting his office as a Christian.
On the other hand, the secular, non-Christian peoples of this nation and of the world look on President Bush as a "loose cannon", using the incredible power of his office to force his strange, dangerous prophetic views on the whole world.
Neither view is correct, but as Hitler said, "Truth is not what is; truth is what it is perceived to be".
When the Illuminati Plan comes to the point where Bush's strange apocalyptic views ignite the world into World War III, non-Christians will turn on genuine Christians with a vengeance, simply because the outside world considers him and his war to be Christian! Many, many Muslims consider that Muslim Iraq was invaded by a Christian Crusader army. As we detailed in our articles and newsletters, Muslims see our torture and sexual degradation crimes in the Iraqi and Afghanistan military prisons as just the latest example of the moral degradation they have always attributed to "Christian" nations.
If Bush takes down Evangelical and Fundamental Christianity in the eyes of the world, the brush will most definitely be wide enough to color Fundamental Christianity.
Watch events carefully. The war in Iraq is just going to get worse and worse, bringing the time closer when a spark will set off a regional war. That war will then drag Israel into the maelstrom. But, events will not begin until Israel has completed her separation of populations (NEWS1422 and NEWS1620). Thus, we watch Sharon's Unilateral Disengagement plans with great interest.
When the policies of President Bush are completely discredited because they were seen to start a World War III rather than prevent one, genuine Christians will quickly be cast into the same boat. The scene will be then set for the beginning of the Tribulation persecution of the saints, a contention made even more plausible when you realize that the objective of the World War III is to produce Antichrist on the world scene.
"... and when they have made an end of shattering and crushing the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished" [Daniel 12:7b; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
"When the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the foot of the altar the souls of those whose lives had been sacrificed for adhering to the Word of God and for the testimony they had borne. They cried in a loud voice, O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long now before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood upon those who dwell on the earth? Then they were each given a [b]long and flowing and festive white robe and told to rest and wait patiently a little while longer, until the number should be complete of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed as they themselves had been." [Revelation 6:9-11; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
As the world swirls toward the climactic End of the Age, we can see how this gigantic misperception of who President Bush truly is could soon fulfill these prophecies, above. Persecution is coming, genuine Christian; we have been set up for the fall.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
