The Donkey, the Cross and the White Horse

27 Mar

Donkey

Sweat beads on the forehead of the Son of Man. The small donkey feels a rush of anxiety as the throngs come into view, but Jesus calms him with a gentle stroke of his side. With just a slight movement of his body forward he instructs the animal to take him to his destiny. Palm Sunday. Outside the gate to the holiest of all cities, Jerusalem, the crowds have gathered to finally get a glimpse of the man they’ve heard so much chatter of. The rock star of his era. The one who raises the dead, heals the blind and sick, and turns the wicked to the pure. Jesus the man feels what all humans would feel at the center of that type of hysteria…butterflies…deep in the pit of his gut. Still he rides forward on this donkey chosen for its symbolism – humility and peace. He comes to them as a servant…though he is a king. The King of Kings.

The early celebration has long since faded away. The people have turned. The politics are thick with conspiracy. Blood…as it always is…stands front and center at attention. The Roman is worked up in a demonic like state as his body shakes with hatred and his hand grasps the rusted spike. His lip quivers and his eyes are glossed over in the unholy stare that all killers get in the midst of their act. He’s euphoric. His mighty arm lifts high in the air and then drives down in a furious rage as the spike crushes into the bones of Christ. His hand shatters. The blood of the perfect lamb splatters the face of the Roman. His tongue licks at it rabidly…and he snorts. 3 days later the tomb is empty. The crowds have left. The Roman screams out from his sleep as his soul senses what he has done. Jesus Christ has risen. The way, the truth and the life. No man shall enter the kingdom except through him.

The people stare up in paralyzing shock. The atmosphere has parted and the portal to Heaven has opened in the sky. A great white horse appears…snorting the fierce judgment of the Lord…and the rider is called, “Faithful and True.” His eyes look to be on fire. The King of Kings has returned to Jerusalem…and a great sword comes from His mouth to strike the nations. The day of the Kingdom has come. Lord of Lords. Peace and justice eternal.

The question is do you believe? My personal urging to you is…find a church this Holy Week. Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday…Easter Sunday. Pray for God to lead you to where and just go. Take a leap of faith.

God Bless You,

World War III: The Reshaping of the World

23 Aug

order

On January 27th, 2013, Bob Woodward (Yes – that Bob Woodward) posted an article in the Washington Post about why President Obama picked Chuck Hagel as his new Secretary of Defense. He quotes Mr. Hagel as saying the following to the President at the beginning of his first term as the US President: “We are at a time where there is a New World Order. We don’t control it. You must question everything, every assumption, everything they (the military and the diplomats) tell you. Any assumption 10 years old is out of date. You need to question our role. You need to question the military. You need to question what are we using the military for.”  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/bob-woodward-why-obama-picked-hagel-for-defense-secretary/2013/01/27/b87eb8ce-68ae-11e2-af53-7b2b2a7510a8_story.html

That readers, in case you miss the point, is scary as bleeping hell. In a nutshell, the man who is now our Secretary of Defense, told the brand new President, wild-eyed radical Barack Obama, that we had lost control of our own fate. That the very institutions that we must count on for loyalty first and foremost, can’t be trusted as much as even what they say is good to eat at the Pentagon cafeteria. This info doesn’t come from any far left or far right wacko site…it comes from Bob Woodward. The man who broke Watergate. The most famous investigative journalist in the world who works for one of the world’s most influential newspapers, the Washington Post. What are we supposed to do with that information? Well, as history concludes, the same as what happened with the entire mountain of disturbing information that has spilled out since the day President Obama took office, and really since the day Wall Street robbed the National Treasury – We are to do nothing with it at all. Just sit on it and pretend it isn’t there.

That brings us to the now. The sweltering hot month of August in the year 2014. Closing in on the midway point of President Obama’s second term as President, and knowing that since Chuck Hagel said that to the President, the world has come literally unhinged from every single stabilizing point that held it together for over half a century post World War II. We are in nothing short of barely controlled chaos, and it’s been that way for several years now. The global economy, technically dead since 2008, on forced life support, being fed now trillions of bogus dollars just to keep the appearance of stability, while the puzzle pieces are shifted into their new places. Even the uneducated and simple are wise enough to know you can’t create money out of thin air without disaster paying you a visit. It’s a façade to cover the work behind the scenes.

That very same Chuck Hagel now declares earlier this week that the world is suddenly spinning out of control. Oh is it now, Chuck? Just notice that did ya? It all comes back to his warning to the new President about questioning and trust, and the information he provided saying WE are not in control of it. The WE being you and I, the represented people and government of the United States. So who is? Who is pulling the strings and what side are WE on? Are we still represented? If you look at everything that is being done to our culture, I would highly advise you to consider that no, we are definitely not represented. We are merely pawns. The heavily armed and even more so massively confused American public. We’ve been sold out. Or have we? This thing is so wrapped around so much bull crap now, I doubt there is one single person in authority remaining that can be certain of anything.

So all we can do is look at the facts on the ground and make assumptions. When assumptions are all you have to base an intelligent guess on, the chances of failure are almost certain. There are 5 major pieces to the puzzle at this moment I type – 1. The United States 2. Russia 3. China 4. Israel 5. Whatever ISIS has turned into suddenly. Numbers 2, 3 and 5 actively are working to disable and/or destroy the United States, all for different purposes. Russia for power, China for resources and perceived world hierarchy they feel sits them on top, and the collective of Islamist mutants, for their God who tells them beheading women and children and drinking their blood is the right thing to do. Number 4. Total wildcard these days, but the center of everything. The flashpoint for all to come. We haven’t even got around to Iran or North Korea. Our border is being invaded from the south by we have zero idea what, and worse, it’s encouraged and allowed, and our military is being tempted and taunted at every point on the globe. Something is going to pop. The economy certainly, but it will go far beyond that. We can only assume from Hagel’s warning, that elements within this country are also ready for that pop.

The world is being reshaped right before our eyes. My own personal opinion is that all parties involved want that reshaping to include as little actual warfare as possible. China and Russia would much prefer to eventually break America up into warring factions against each other, as they move in to keep a controlled peace and rape the plentiful resources of our land. But history has never accused either of those nations of being gentle. If too much resistance remains to fight by America, we could easily see major cities one after another being wiped out. Many leaders in Washington came out this past week and stated that America has never been in more danger than it is right this moment. The country, 99.9% of its population, didn’t even hear them say it. It is that indifference that has invited this situation. One morning soon our news is going to wake up America again, like it did on September 11, 2001. But this time…my fear is…we aren’t going to recover. We never really did from the first one. The second shot will be the one to the head. That morning is coming very soon, perhaps even imminent, and the one piece of sure advice I can give to you would be to make sure your personal house is in order with the Son of Man.
