Things I Want My

"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again; poor fools. And their grand-children are once more slaves." (D. H. Lawrence)

You will find in God’s system the grandparents are in many ways much more important than the parents in passing the baton of truth on in the family. It is the grandparents’ prime responsibility to raise their children, and grandchildren, in the true knowledge of God. It is against God’s Law to ignore doing this, and simply send our kids along to the world school systems to be corrupted, as I write about in our book Friends, Fun and Fornication—Cheating Our Kids Out Of True Fulfilment in Life. The Scriptures and the prophets teach this principle at every turn. Of course this important teaching and nurturing role of the grandparents will diminish as the parents and grandchildren grow in spiritual maturity. This maturity will only come about through the operation of the indwelling Birthright Holy Spirit, which is only available from the age of 30 years. Thus the Feast of Tabernacles in the 30th year of everyone should be a most significant Feast Day, as the Eternal Creator God has always intended!

What I Want My Grandchildren to Know



We Are Responsible !

" We are responsible for our children and for our grandchildren, for our nieces and nephews and our grandnieces and grandnephews." (Edith Schaeffer, What Is Family?)


"Mortimer Adler, one of the greatest literary scholars, spent decades researching a book called The Great Ideas. In the research of this book he and his staff read every major piece of literature that's ever been written in Western history. He distilled it down to 102 ideas that are important in Western culture.

In the very first chapter of this book he talks about what he calls "the 20th century delusion." The 20th century delusion is the fact that modern people think that we are more enlightened, wiser and more sophisticated than people that ever lived before us.

Do we have more technology? Sure we do. Do we have more medicine? Sure we do. Do we have transportation and all of this kind of stuff? Sure we do. But are we wiser?" (From The 7 Great Lies of Organized Religion, by Perry Marshall. available here: http://www.CoffeeHouseTheology.com)

The Lie in "Let Them Make Up Their Own Minds."

This saying has to be one of the greatest lies ever told about the raising of children I have come across. Unfortunately it afflicts the minds, conversations, and intentions of just about every parent I have ever talked to about the raising of children. And it is pure stupidity!

At the back of this lie is the tacit assumption that we are raising our children on a level playing field by sending them along to society's education system (it doesn't make any difference whether it be the public or private system, both systems are polluted and corrupt), where, the lie continues, when the children reach the age where they can "make their own minds up," they are supposed to be equipped to make a balanced decision.

This is a lie and a great deception because we have tutored them in Satan's ways right from the beginning, because it is in the system's education system where the real corruption of our young start. We con ourselves, and our children, to think otherwise.

What utter hogwash this all is!

In that system they learnt about the dating game, free sex, contraception, abortion, divorce, homosexuality, evolution, stealing, pride, violence, and a host of other sexual and "relationship" practices (in many schools now they are taught about fellatio, cunnilinctus and anilinctus, including how to engage in sodomy) that are all designed as the precursors of fornication, adultery, and homosexuality.

They learn a false history of the world. They learn about the (fraudulent) banking system from a tender age (remember school banking?). They were conned into thinking that their news and other information about their world was absolutely true, reliable, and free of any bias. They learnt competitiveness and in fact in just about everything, they were taught that it was "cool" to hate God in the most devastating way, by being hooked into the con of the theory of evolution, which treated God as a non-entity.

But that's just some of the more obvious things we led them astray with. If you have never read John Taylor Gatto's great expose of the school system, then you'd probably also be ignorant of the subtle evils, beyond most people's comprehension, that Satan's education system is really all about.

You say, "let them make up their own minds." Well, my friend, with this faulty thinking, our children have not had a chance right from the start! We guaranteed that, because as parents, we have worked hand in glove with Satan in destroying our own children!


In general, here are three solemn things, from the ancient world, that we must ensure we teach to our children and grandchildren. These things are the foundation of the teaching righteousness to our children and grandchildren. They are from Enoch the prophet:

1. Explain every thing to your grandchildren, as they become old enough to understand, so that they can learn to discriminate between right and wrong. Do not lie by commission or omission. Here are Enoch's recommendations:

"Explain every thing to Mathusalah thy son; and inform all thy children, that no flesh shall be justified before the Lord; for He is their Creator (Gal. 2: 16). During one year we will leave thee with thy children, until thou shalt again recover thy strength, that thou mayest instruct thy family write these things, and explain them to all thy children. But in another year they shall take thee from the midst of them, and thy heart shall be strengthened; for the elect shall point out righteousness to the elect; the righteous with the righteous shall rejoice, congratulating each other; but sinners with sinners shall die." (Book of Enoch, 80: 8-9, Richard Laurence translation, 1821)

Note especially the importance of "that no flesh shall be justified before the Lord" in the grand scheme of things. This means that the Lord will not tolerate those human beings who put spin on His Law and His requiremnets, as many people always do. This distorting of the Lord's requirements, by justifying everything we do (i.e. making excuses for ourselves and pretending innocence at every turn) is a rottenness of momentous proportions in certain kinds of people who have never taken seriously the purpose of their lives. Essentially this is a process of modifying, redefining or watering down the Eternal edict.

The Roman statesman Cicero correctly observed that the function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil. Unfortunately for the world, we now live in a grim and shabby world, where most have no idea of the differences between right and wrong. The central key in teaching righteousness is keeping the letter and the spirit of the Law, and to do this we must teach the Law of the Four Ps, a process that has been well understood and taught by Bob Mumford in his excellent little book, The Purpose of Temptation. Without understanding the easily understood principles of this Law, we give in to temptation again and again. As Bob says, "Christianity is not complicated. The relationship between God and man can be understood in terms simple enough for a child to grasp. Yet, the spiritual implications of these truths bring the wisest men to a point of awe." Bob summarises the essence of the problem of teaching righteousness to our children and grandchildren (this assumes of course that we have mastered the art and science ourselves!):

"It is when Daddy is gone that the real test of obedience comes to the children.

 'Now, kids, when I'm gone, don't fight and don't get into the cookie jar!'

'Sure Dad, we'll be good!'

Four hours later Daddy comes home and all but one cookie is gone!"

All this really means teaching our children how to overcome temptation, as Bob Mumford teaches, so that when daddy is not there, the children can stand firm on the principles they have been taught. Of course if the parents are Law breakers, and hypocrites, themselves, then no real teaching of righteousness can ever occur.

"The principal aim of this plan is to learn wisdom-the essential teaching of Jesus Christ-and to those who actually conquer the tremendously powerful pull of our carnal natures, the world, and the deceiver, the reward is known as Eternal life. Thus, the function of learning wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil, and as the Book of Proverbs, as well as the Psalms, passionately encourages, it is the principle thing in life to master. In other words, we must diligently learn how, and why, to choose the good, and to reject the evil. Which means we are to become self-conscious, self-motivated students and practitioners of the Eternal spiritual laws of life, so that the title "Sons of God," instead of mere possibilities, becomes reality."

The children must be protected from the world and all its evil ways, and all baptised members of the congregation must participate in this protection. It is essential that everyone knows what their Godly role is in their family structure. That is the grandparents and great grandparents, the father, the mother, and the children, should all have a keen understanding of God's system Of great important is that the children must be appropriately introduced to the truth about the New Moon Festivals, and the minimum age (30 years) at which a repentant human being can approach God through water baptism. You will find the necessary details in the folowing:

a. You will find in-depth material on the minimum age of baptism in our free book, How Families Flourish, which is available here:

http://NazareneRemnant.org/how-families-flourish.html

The relevant section is in Section 3, "The Shocking Suppressed Truth About Love, Sex and Marriage," under the heading "DEFINITIVE TRUTH #3: The Suppressed Truth About Water Baptism and the Age of 30 Years in the Scriptures."

b. You will find in-depth information on the New Moon Festivals in our free book The New Moon Festivals: the “First Works” of Salvation, which is here:

http://NazareneRemnant.org/the-new-moon-festivals-the-first-works-of-salvation.html

2. Converse with your children and grandchildren in truth ...

"I have no greater grace than this, to hear that my children walk in truth." (3 John 1: 4 )


"Then Mathusala went, called to him all his brethren, and assembled his kindred.

And conversing with all his children in truth, Enoch said: Hear, my children, every word of your father, and listen in uprightness to the voice of my mouth; for I would gain your attention, while I address you. My beloved: be attached to integrity, and walk in it.

Approach not integrity with a double heart; nor be associated with double-minded men; but walk, my children, in righteousness, which will conduct you in good paths; and truth be your companion (Jas. 1: 8).

For I know, that oppression will exist and prevail on earth; that on earth great punishment shall in the end take place; and that there shall be a consummation of all iniquity, which shall be cut off from its root, and every fabric raised by it shall pass away. Iniquity however, shall again be renewed, and consummated on earth. Every act of crime, and every act of oppression and impiety, shall be a second time embraced.

When therefore iniquity, sin, blasphemy, tyranny, and every evil work, shall increase, and when transgression, impiety, and uncleanness also shall increase, then upon them all shall great punishment be inflicted from heaven.

The Holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and upon them all shall great punishment from heaven be inflicted.

The Holy Lord shall go forth in wrath, and with punishment, that he may execute judgment upon the earth.

In those days oppression shall be put off from its roots, and iniquity with fraud shall be eradicated, perishing from under heaven.

Every place of strength shall be surrendered with its inhabitants; with fire it shall be burnt. They shall be brought from every part of the earth, and be cast into a judgment of fire. They shall perish in wrath, and by a powerful judgment for ever.

Righteousness shall be raised up from slumber; and wisdom shall be raised up, and conferred upon them.

Then shall the roots of iniquity be cut off; sinners perish by the sword; and blasphemers be cut off.

Those who meditate oppression, and those who blaspheme, by the sword shall perish.

And now, my children, I will describe and point out to you the path of righteousness and the path of oppression.

I will again point them out to you, that you may know what is to come.

Hear now, my children, and walk in the path of righteousness, but shun that of oppression; for all who walk in the path of iniquity shall perish forever." (Book of Enoch 90: 2-17, Richard Laurence translation, 1821)

What I Want My Grandchildren to Know


3. Teach them to live in patient righteousness, away from sinners and oppressors, above all, teach them how to love and how to pray ...

"Wait with patient hope; nor relinquish your confidence; for great joy shall be yours, like that of the angels of heaven. Conduct yourselves as you may, still you shall not be concealed in the day of the great judgment. You shall not be found like sinners; and eternal condemnation shall be far from you during every generation of the world. And now fear not, ye righteous, when you see sinners strong and worthy in their ways.

Be not associates with them, but keep yourselves at a distance from their oppression; be ye associated with the host of heaven. You, ye sinners, say: All our transgression shall not be taken account of, and be recorded. But all your transgressions shall be recorded daily.

I will shew you that light and darkness, day and night, behold all your transgressions. Be not impious in your thoughts; lie not; surrender not the word of uprightness; lie not against the word of the holy and the mighty One; glorify not your idols, for all your lying and all your impiety is not for righteousness, but for great crime.

Now I will point out a mystery: Many sinners shall turn and transgress against the word of uprightness.

They shall speak evil things; they shall utter falsehood; create a great creation; and compose books in their own words. But when they shall write all my words correctly in their own language,

They shall neither change nor diminish them; but shall write them all correctly; all which from the first I have uttered concerning them.

Another mystery also I point out. To the righteous and the wise shall be given books of joy, of integrity, and of great wisdom. To them shall books be given, in which they shall believe;

And in which they shall rejoice. And all the righteous shall be rewarded, who from these shall acquire the knowledge of every upward path." (Book of Enoch 104: 1-11, Richard Laurence translation, 1821)

And from the Book of Romans ...

"And you have forgotten the consolation which speaketh to you, as unto children, saying: My son, neglect not the discipline of the Lord: neither be thou wearied whilst thou art rebuked by him." (Hebrews 12: 5)

But one of the key teachings that we must be aware of is that of learning how to truly suffer, for this is the crux of the matter. I am not referring to the suffering thrust upon one through the vicissitudes of life. Rather I am referring to what the ancients understood and taught about this vital subject. You can find that information in our freely available book The Die Is Cast.

Put simply, we must teach and show our children, and grandchildren, that they cannot flirt with the world and remain pure and undefiled: "And with very many other words did he testify and exhort them, saying: Save yourselves from this perverse generation ." (Act 2: 40)

Everything on this page could be summarised down to the two sayings of the Messiah:

"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men:" (Matthew 10: 16-17)

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8: 32) In other words, the only key to unlock the darkness that many of us live in is the total truth.

Wayne Bennet, the coach of the very successful Brisbane Broncos rugby league team here in Queensland, is a person of integrity whom I admire greatly. Recently he was asked What is success to you? His answer was brief and brilliantly to the point:

"Being the best you can. To know that, you must teach yourself to be always totally honest and continually evaluate everything you do and say."

Wayne Bennett knows the greatest of the truths, and we would all do well to follow what he considers to be his greatest professional and personal breakthrough:

"Knowing who I am. I have never been at war with myself. I have made lots of sacrifices - learning to be stable, responsible, someone people can rely on - and I have always been prepared to change things about me that I did not like. Not change me - but my behaviour." (Wayne Bennett, reported in The Australian Financial Review Magazine, March 2008 edition, p. 22)

From The Die Is Cast, every human being needs to be educated in the true road-map of spiritual growth, the New Moon Festivals, instead of being fed the absolute lies and utter rubbish of organised religion that ignorant and naive modern parents and grandparents teach their children. This book is the story of my own family's descent into sin and degradation, and provides the true road to salvation, taken from an restored understanding of ancient Christianity, and the so-called myth of The Labours of Hercules. There is much to be learnt here and I suggest that you download and study this book, and finally understand the meaning of the labours of Hercules, for they are the minimum labours of all people who woule be saved!

One of the most important things parents and grandparents need to teach their children and grandchildren, is how to control their emotions, so that they can demonstrate mature love, which is the hallmark of righteousness. I recommend that you get a copy of the following book, and understand it well:

Burns, David D, Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy. Information Australia Group, Melbourne, 1980.

This book will give any diligent reader a “top flight” education in understanding and mastering their emotions, which is the prime prerequisite for demonstrating love: “If you can’t control your emotions, you can’t demonstrate love.” (Mary Hardy)

Comment from a reader at HenryMakow.com :

"Grant said (January 21, 2008):

I just read that article ("Art" Films Pack Ideological Sucker Punch") and I felt so sad, because you are right.

I have a TV, but it's always off. TV shows are not a reflection of modern society, they are defining society. It is so strange; I can see it, this sort of foundation that all TV shows and movies are based around now. It's a strong opinion about what is wrong and what is right, what is moral and what isn't and these ideas are posed like they are obvious truths that everyone knows.

These "truths" are somehow unnatural and kind of strange and they are definitely not what any normal person would agree with, but people who watch TV shows regularly are changed. Their ideas of what is right and wrong become aligned with what they are watching.

When a person sits watching TV it's like their soul is open, the outside world is excluded and it's like there is a direct conduit from the TV to the person's core. You can stare at a person watching TV and they wont notice. I know, I've seen it happen to my sister, friends, my own wife! It's horrible. You see someone you care about in a trance like state actually getting reprogrammed. It's poison.

I like to be entertained, I really enjoy a good sci-fi or action movie… but I just don't trust that TV anymore. I have a daughter, her mind is precious and her belief about what is right and wrong is sacred and needs to be encouraged to grow and to be her own. I will not tolerate such a weapon to be used against her. The damage it does is so sinister."

For Parents and Grandparents:

"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture, just get people to stop reading them." (Ray Bradbury)

So, Here's My Starter List ...

Teach Them the Purpose of Life

The most important general principle I want my grandchildren to know is the purpose of their lives, which, as I have already said, involves the learning of wisdom, which is the ability to discern between right and wrong. Ultimately, their destiny is to become great angels, living eternally. Consequently, the most important principle is the Law of the Ten Commandments, and not some wishy-washy watered down version that the false-shepherds have always taught, but the full import of the Eternal Law. To that end, they must be taught the Law of the Four Ps, which will give them the much needed skill to enable them to overcome temptation and to grow up as fully mature righteous and loving human beings.

Resources:

Mumford, Bob, The Purpose of Temptation, Fleming H Revell Company, Old Tappan, New Jersey, 1973.

Essay 14, "The Law of the Four P's," of The Beguiled and the Doctrine of the "Two Spirits," contains a useful summary of Bog Mumford's teaching.

The Shocking Suppressed Truth
About Love, Sex and Marriage


The singular most important thing I would like to stress, over and over again, and need my grandchildren to know ... before it is too late ... is the truth about love, sex, and marriage. You see, their parents, Sean and Enya, have packed them along to the world educational system where the chief output is fantasy, lies, and moral relativity. I'm hoping and praying that these two young foolish parents can quickly come to their senses, and intervene as real parents are duty-bound to do ... before their three beautiful children, whom I have been denied access to, are fully indoctrinated by the lies and deceptions that this world peddles. Hopefully, Danika, Saskia and Arianna can live their lives with truth, free minds, and spirits, beginning in their childhood rather than middle age. They especially need to be well-grounded in the ways in which our Creator, and our Eternal Father, has put a fortress around love, sex, and marriage. Sean and Enya must clearly understand that it is their repentance and righteousness that protects and sanctifies their children in God's sight, because God rejects all human beings until they reach the age of 30 years. Any parent who does not understand the critical truth I am restoring here will condemn their children to lead lives that will inevitably lead to their eternal damnation. You must understand that the Eternal God has ordained that no one should approach Him until they reach the age of 30 years for one singular and vital reason--to build strong Godly families. Read more about this matter here:

The Truth About the Minimum Age of Baptism

Of extreme importance is for everybody to thoroughly understand what the bastard curse is all about, and how it is totally connected to the crucifixion of the Messiah (a good place for parents to understand what this is really all about is in our free books, How Families Flourish, and in the Essay "The Fall," which can be found in The Beguiled and the Doctrine of the "Two Spirits"). As regards the bastard curse, we recommend that you specifically understand Section 3, "The Shocking Suppressed Truth About Love, Sex and Marriage," of How Families Flourish. If you fail to teach these important truths to your children, you will be held totally responsible for the effects of your children being robbed of these gems of spiritual knowledge.

Here is the original legislation for the bastard curse:  

 

“A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:(Deuteronomy 23: 2 and 3) 

Along with this I need my grand daughters to know that sex is not a national sporting past time, that it seems to have become in this world. It was given by God as the greatest of gifts to the human race for the purpose of procreation in loving God-fearing families. The raising of a God-fearing human being is perhaps the most solemn thing a human being is called to do, no matter what!

What I Want My Grandchildren to Know


If God was really so powerful and good He wouldn't allow
so much evil and suffering to go on, would He?
 

This is the question that everyone asks sooner or later in their lives. It is also the question that never gets an honest answer, never! And I need my grandchildren (and yours too, by extension) to know the answer to this vital question. And you know what? I have the answer! It is now possible to teach them the truth: "Here's why there is evil and suffering in the world, [and] I'm going to show you exactly why."

The fact of all life is that there exists a most powerful conflict here on this Earth. It is between the forces of good and the forces of evil, as this little story as told by an old Cherokee Indian to his grandchildren reveals (see text box below) ...

 Which wolf do you feed

One day I'm sure my grandchildren will want to know the truth about the trouble that exists in their family, especially the trouble that exists between their father (my son Sean) and his father (that's me!). Eventually they will learn that just as Sean's own mother has robbed him of the truth, Sean has followed in her evil footsteps, and robbed his own children of true truth as well.

That truth concerns the spiritual battle going on inside each and every one of us, as the Cherokee story tells us. For sincere people this battle is a heart-churning, and if they persist in staying the course of the battle, with courage, the good wolf inside of them will win. But if they are weak, stupid, and non-thinking, and do not seek after truth, and follow the example of other stupid people, which includes their parents, the bad wolf is almost a certainty to win.

You see, every person on Earth needs to know about this battle, and its connection to the Moon that we see in our skies on clear nights, for both are intimately connected.

"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." (Matthew 10: 34) 

The difference between the sheep and the goats: “How does this relate to goats vs. sheep ministry? Goats are entertainers. [Nazarene Remnant comment: Interestingly, the Zodiacal sign of the goat is Capricorn!] They draw attention away from hearing and obeying their Shepherd, and place it on themselves. Is it surprising that the church today has a huge problem in this area? Shepherds and, for example, worship leaders, who lead God’s people away from a relationship with the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ, are most often goats. A common method for doing this is entertainment, excitement, false manifestations of the Holy Spirit on the one side, or rejection of the legitimate manifestations of the Holy Spirit on the other side. John chapter ten uses an even more interesting term. Verse one calls them thieves and robbers. [[1]] Goats always have bad spiritual fruit. Sheep have good spiritual fruit.” (Fox, Carl L. and Norcross, Paul D., Breaking the Authority of the Bastard Curse, Christian Faith International, 2004, p. 26.)



[1] John 10:1

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

It's impossible for all religions to be true. But it is entirely
possible to find the true religion, which is ancient Christianity.

In a world ruled by lies and deception, there is one major lie that stands out above all others. It is the lie that, as Perry Marshall explains, "T"here is no single truth. Everyone needs to explore and find the truth that works for them." This is going to be the fraudulent basis of the one-world-religion that the New World Owners are going to force us to believe. The last Pope began teaching this philosophy many years ago, and the current Pope is no different. Even Prince Charles, a decidely wicked man, teaches this brand of "religion" everywhere he goes.

If there were no books, tapes, or films, or no human being to pass on the truth, we could still find God's truth if we were so inclined.

The Foundational Rock of Certainty

I would like them to be raised with the foundational rock of certainty of the truth, and to be able to converse, discuss, and persuade with the power of an uncaged lion, as C.S. Lewis explains: "You don't need to defend a lion. You just need to let him out of his cage." As Perry Marshall points out:

"What it does is it gives us the right and the opportunity to discuss and debate and explore. C.S. Lewis, I think, was talking about this when he said, 'You don't need to defend a lion. You just need to let him out of his cage.'

In our culture it's politically incorrect to talk about this in polite company. Now in the process of answering all these e-mails that come in from people I've learned why we have a taboo about discussing religion.It's because some people aren't mature enough to do it in a civil way, if you catch my drift.

I get all kinds of people who tell me I'm an idiot. They don't seem to have any sense that they should use any manners or anything when they express themselves. So now I know why we don't talk about these things in public.

But do you know what? We still need to talk about them, okay? Sometimes you've got to have thick skin and deal with a little shrapnel and try to get down to the bottom of things. That's what TruthQuest is all about isn't it?

Spirituality gets locked up in a cage. People don't talk to each other. People might have great ideas and great inspirations. But then nobody finds out about them because they're afraid to talk about it. People have bizarre silly ideas that would never fly in a logical discussion but they never, ever find out they're wrong because they never talk to anybody about it and find out.

I mean look, we all have our limitations of perspective and we all have our blind spots. Usually other people can see our blind spots a whole lot better than we can. I know that's true of me.

If somebody tells you they have the truth they are not being arrogant. They are either right or they are sadly deceived. However, you can't put down somebody for being deceived and you can't fault somebody for being right. So the real challenge is discerning the difference." (http://CoffeHouseTheology.com)

This means that they must be fed on truth and not lies, which is the way of life these days where we have terms like "spin," "political correctness," and every level of deception. They need to be taught the grim reality behind Thomas Jefferson's famous statement, that "The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers." (Thomas Jefferson) This further means that if they are raised on the lies fed to this generation, then our grandchildren will fall prey to the same monsters we have. To avoid this we must absolutely get them out of the false education system of the world and do it ourselves!

Teach Them The Book of Proverbs

I would want them to read, study and understand the Book of Proverbs, because it will get them out of trouble more than any other book they can read, as Perry Marshall confides:

"The Book of Proverbs in the Bible was written 3,000 years ago. The Book of Proverbs has saved my butt more times than anything I can think of.

'A soft answer diffuses anger but harsh words stir up evil.'

'A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity.'

'The fool hates to be corrected by his father but a wise son listens to advice.'

I think what's so clever about Proverbs is he takes these incredible profound truths and crunches them down to these little sentences with two parts.

'A soft answer turns away wrath but harsh words stir up anger.' Two ways to go.  Two ways to have this next phone conversation we're about to have.

Which way do you want it? You get to decide. Solomon lays it out for you. Thirty-one chapters. A great book to read one chapter a day for a month."

Teach Them That This World is
the "Domain of Darkness"

I would like them to know that the world's system of nation-states, and democratic-statism, is the domain of darknesss, ruled over by the invisible hand of Satan himself.

The most dangerous and damaging aspect of Satan's domain is the world's education system, because it is there, as George Orwell told us in Animal Farm, that our darling your children are indoctrinated in lies and and a fraudulent foundation to life is assured. I have very little influence over my son anymore, and certainly none at all with his "wife," but I am earnestly but passively (through information like this) warning them, over and over, to align their lives with the true ancient values, which is ancient Christianity, and the true religion. That would involve a number of things, but for the three grils, it would mean removing them from the fraudulent school system, and home schooling them in a community of like-minded other families. As one commentator said:

"But I must add that schools, from kindergarten up, are pushing the lie [of rampant feminism] harder and faster than ever onto unaware little girls. (TV too. Girls on tv now forever do "boys' activities" - almost never anything feminine.) Most teachers - k thru 12 anyway - are women, and the huge majority of them are thoroughly frustrated but adamant feminists.

Pretty much brain dead followers of fad. Therefore emotionally damaged upcoming women will continue to ruin life for themselves and men their age for some time to come. Home school. It's really easier for parents than for them to forever try to fight and right the nonsense put into their kids heads by the mis-education empire. And toss the TV." (Source: Feminist at the End of Her Rope)

Of course the schools are pushing more than feminism. They teach lies about God and the Creation (the lie of the theory of evolution), and they have no idea whatsoever about the Eternal Law, which, I must add, has never been rescinded at any time. They teach and encourage fornication and adultery, which is tantamount to destroying our young people. The history they teach is an absolute collection of lies, the product of people like Winston Churchill[1], who wrote a "history" that suited the elite banking cartel, the money-power, who seeks to enslave us.

So a second important aspect I would like to shout out from the roof-tops is simply this: stop looking for love in all the wrong places (and by love I really mean wisdon). Stop trying to reform the world system, your local church, or local government system, or the local schools. Stop getting your information--i.e. newspapers, magazines, radio and television--from the people who are going to enslave us. All of these world systems are absolutely rotten and beyond redemption, and are earmarked for total destruction, which will be effected very soon now. I feel sorry for this single father, who appears not to know that he is looking in all the wrong places indeed ...

Letter from a Frustrated White Male Father in Education/Social Services

February 14, 2008

"I am just exhausted and tired of struggling against so many changes that I have seen and experienced over time which has made career and family life difficult. Just to give you some background on myself, I am a 41 yr old primary parent of one child who has been struggling to raise him in this world I don't understand anymore. I have done what I thought were all the right things; I have always been employed since I was 16, went to university, finished and have worked in the social services field for 15 yrs in various roles, got married and started a family with someone I thought wouldn't think just about herself (divorced).

Frustration of a White Male Father

The frustration comes from the lack of opportunity and fair playing field in achieving a satisfying career and family life for my son and I. I have been working in a field that is dominated by equal opportunity, but that equal opportunity is not what it states. I have continuously been overlooked time and time again to see someone less qualified and less experienced step in front of me because they fell under the blanket of "equal opportunity". Why is the spotlight not on these things? Why if we are combating the evil done by the past we continue to just pass the torch to another group to do what they condemned as holding them back. The health sciences, education and social services to name the obvious are dominated by female employees, yet still all the job postings state that "we are an equal opportunity employer", then go on to identify women and everyone else but white males as a priority of hiring in an environment that is skewed with female employment. I am ready to leave my career behind and pursue something else, but it is so frustrating to have put in so much and to expect so little when trying to move forward and up.

I am not even going to get into the the whole destruction of family and the new empowered female who can do what ever she wants with little or no repercussions.

I hope this provided some insight into my thoughts, I am finding it more and more difficult to express myself anymore. I feel like I can't express myself, I'm at a loss for words, when you do speak you are attacked, everything is politically incorrect unless you are not white and male." (Source: Exhausted and Tired of Struggling )

Align yourself and your family with people who have already aligned themselves with Eternal Principles (i.e. the Eternal Law). Stop moaning and groaning about the world system. Can't you see that it is rotten to the core and will not change. It is earmarked for sudden and complete destruction, which is right on us. That means to take seriously the command to come out of the world system. Stop trying to have one foot in the world and the other in some system you think is righteous. That won't work either.

I gave copies of this book to my son to help him teach his girls the truth about the education system and the world system, but I bet in his foolishness, he has not done the right thing, and read them himself first, and then introduced them to his children by reading along with them and explaining, as the Book of Enoch enjoins, everything to them.

More About Letters to Jessica:

Robert Bissett’s Letters To Jessica has a powerful introduction written for Ron and Deb, the parents of Jessica, for whom the Letters To Jessica were written, about the State called Foolish, and how our children, and grandchildren, are brainwashed and conditioned by the state, without the parents, and grandparents, even being aware that this is actually happening (because they are its victims as well). Here's part of that introduction:

“I’ve enclosed a series of letters addressed to Jessica, but they are for all three girls. Here’s how I came to write them.

As you know, I’ve been trying to live in the world of reality by claiming full freedom of mind for several years. Not the sort of freedom we thought we had after twelve years of government programming and statist indoctrination. I mean the real thing, without the coerced belief in democratic statism. Our generation has never enjoyed freedom of mind and spirit. At first this may seem improbable, but it is the simple truth.

Try not believing in the invisible, immortal state. It’s not optional. If someone’s programming is complete, they cannot even see that they have a choice. They are content to live in a fantasy world that has developed over the years.

Then it occurred to me that there is a large group which has not been fully indoctrinated! Maybe they could be alerted to what’s in store for them. Maybe they could be made resistant to the powerful mind-control techniques to which they will be subjected. That group is, of course, the children. Jessica is in first grade but will not have any real concept of statism, majority rule and all the rest for many years. Possibly she and the other two girls can be encouraged to prefer reality to fantasy.
  
Many say that America is the best country in the world [1] and that Americans are the freest people. After nine years in Ireland, our friend Ed says it ain’t so! Anyway, we aren’t far behind the slave states. Statism, whether democratic or communistic, with its doctrine of state sovereignty, means total power by definition. It is power over bodies by first taking power over minds.

At this very moment we are passing, by slow degrees, through a series of ‘natural, beneficial, and only slightly extra-legal’ changes which will transform social life in ways that few alive today would consciously wish to inflict upon future generations. We ourselves live under a burden of regulations and restrictions unthinkable for a free people only a few generations ago.

Statism has led to the assertion of governmental authority over areas of life once considered to be off limits. In minds programmed with officially approved ideas, the American state has become more than a government. It is now a verbal monster which has taken up residence in the inner world of all adults. It is all-powerful, invisible, immortal, infinitely wise, and omnipresent. It is god-like. Its high priests and prophets are congressmen, governors and judges, [teachers, lecturers, newspapers, magazines, radio announcers] each acting in its august name. ‘Woe to him who does not believe in the state. Woe to him who does not bow down!’ the preachers tells us. If the American brand of statism [as in Australia, Canada, South Africa, the UK, and every country where British sytle democracy is the form of government] is so wonderful, why is brute force and universal mind-control necessary to maintain it?    

Because the state is entirely a fabrication of human imagination, its general acceptance is endangered by unbelievers. Statism is continually threatened by the new children being born. With each new birth, a new beginning comes into the world. New worlds have the potential to weaken loyalty to the present world system of absurd beliefs. These new worlds are systematically crushed out of existence in the classrooms of America. Every child is naturally an unbeliever in the state and its sovereignty. But unbelief cannot be permitted. Every year millions of gentle minds and free spirits are sacrificed on the altar of statism and democracy. They are placed in lifelong chains, largely by means of compulsory public education.

Hope for the freedom of man is identical with the fact that children are being born daily. Each newborn is a new beginning. Each begins the world anew, free of history, free of tradition, free of institutions. With such freedom, what thoughts are possible? Could new worlds be more violent or more inhumane than the present one? After four thousand years, we know the ultimate expression of statist thinking, the very real threat of mutually assured destruction. We know that democracy has made little real difference. Can there be a greater risk in cultivating new worlds in young minds, allowing them to mature and bear fruit? Isn’t the opposite of statism mutually assured affection? That should be our goal.

Each new man and woman is born outside of human governments, law systems and religious institutions. Such free minds and spirits are the greatest danger to statism’s ruling elite both in Russian and America [and Australia]. Terrorists and military build-ups are nothing in comparison. They serve to increase the iron grip of each country’s power brokers. All over the world, children are brought under the mental yoke at the earliest opportunity in order to perpetuate the present barbaric system. I believe that free and rational minds will reject the system of nation-states as an insane delusion and superstitious nonsense, if given a chance. Every form of government has been tried. The failure of each is scrawled in blood across the pages of history. Either we learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it.

I believe that the Kingdom of God as found in the New Testament is the very opposite of statism. Under the original belief system of Christianity, all power is removed from the hands of human beings—no one is able to handle power without being corrupted. The delusion that one man can rightly and justly rule is exploded. [2] I’m not talking about the tepid Christianity taught by orthodox churches. Whilst piously giving lip-service to a radically new world, they are totally committed to the present one.

If children can be induced to believe the lies of statism, they can be taught the truth of God’s reign on earth. If they can enter a constitutional convention to allow men to rule them, they can enter the New Covenant and let God rule them. At the very least they should be given a choice.

Few have had a more thorough indoctrination to statism than I. Twelve years in the public school system made a true believer out of me. Then four years in the Air Force Academy, followed by over five years as an officer and a pilot, with two quasi-voluntary tours in Viet Nam, flying helicopters and Caribous. It was the senseless horror of those two years that precipitated my journey out of the blackest of superstitions.

Deliberately induced delusions of statism had to be thrown off before returning to the naturally sound mind most of us are born with. It took many years to de-program myself. The job was done by experts and intended to last a lifetime. Only recently have I been able to understand just how good the Good News is!

Hopefully Jessica, Halley and Rachael can live their lives with free minds and spirits beginning in childhood rather than in middle age.

That’s the idea behind these letters. The letters are meant for Jessica and the others as soon as they’re able to read well enough, about the end of second grade. I’ve tried to include enough information to give them a fighting chance. How different my life could have been with this knowledge!
    
The statists must turn first and last to brute force, while we have available reason and truth. The pen is mightier than the sword. There is reason for hope; minds can be freed!” (From Robert Bissett, Letters To Jessica: A Child’s Guide to Freedom of Mind and Spirit, published by Embassy of Heaven Church, 2003, pp. 6-9.

[1] Australians dispute this claim, since to them Oz is the land of the free, land of the Southern Cross, and so on, etc., etc., etc., which is also pure deception. While using the term OZ for Australia is quite incorrect, it is interesting to note that the original use of the term is as an abbreviation for Osiris, the most famous of all the Egyptians! The Illuminati no doubt secured the author of the Wizard of Oz, to mix up a lot of lies, with a little truth here and there, to arrive at the story. Nevertheless, how long has it been part of the Illuminati plan to move to the Land of Oz (i.e. Australia), after the “vilification” has taken place. Once there they will disappear into their underground bunkers, while “The Culling” takes place.

Open Letter to Every Kid in America ...

Bernie Suarez's Open Letter to Every Kid in America (it applies to all Western countries) is also written in a similar vein to Letters to Jessica, except that it is very brief:

My Open Letter to Every Kid in America

By Bernie Suarez
Source: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/11/my-open-letter-to-every-kid-in-america.html

This is my open letter to every kid in America. Hello and welcome to the global empire that you never knew was there. It’s the government your teacher in school taught you about; the government that was supposed to be more important than your own parents. We are talking about the same government that taught you to fear its power and might; the governmental system that has been trying to control your life for as long as you can remember. Yes that one!

Are you awakened yet? Relax; I have really good news for all of you. First, you should know that almost everything the failed educational system taught you is a lie. Yes a lie; almost every piece of American history you were taught was a lie. Every piece of political news you’ve been trained to believe was real actually came from a very small group of private, for-profit media organizations that fronted as real news but it turned out not only were the “news” stories synchronized but this small group of privately owned media giants are actually known as the 4th branch of government.

In case you are wondering, here in the U.S. the first three branches are the Executive (president and vice president), Legislative (Congress consisting of House of Representatives and Senate), and the Judicial branch (Supreme Court). Without the 4th branch of the synchronized controlled media the government would never get what they want; make sense? You may have noticed they kind of say the same things on TV no matter what news channel you flip to? No coincidence.

The system, including Hollywood, the mass media and the government-controlled board of education has been teaching you to shut up and do as you are told because you are nobody unless you pay your taxes, obey the government and have a good credit score, right? This is the same system that had you believing that “taxes” are as sure as death itself.

Now just think for a minute how untrue that is. I have good news; you are life and you are special all by yourself. You have the power in you to do whatever you want. You were not born to be a slave to a government or any breathing person because they wear some uniform; not at all.

You don’t have to be a huge movie star or a professional athlete to be a hero. You don’t have to have a good credit score to be considered a good or “responsible” person and if you are financially poor that doesn’t mean you are a terrorist, a useless eater, or less worthy than a rich person. That is all part of a large package of lies you’ve been fed since day one. You are the hero, not the person on American Idol, and you don’t need to be an NFL player or world famous basketball player to think you are successful. Having a good credit score is NOT the measure of responsibility in this life any more than being rich -- putting out the garbage or paying your bills on time is.

You are free and the only thing that can make you a slave is your choice to believe the lies that you have been taught and your choice to believe that you are nobody. The system that has trained you is not interested in your humanity; it doesn’t care if you are happy or sad, sick or in good health. The system that has guided your mental growth for so many years doesn’t care what your personal values are and it doesn’t care what you want to do with your life. It is determined to guide your belief system and the system wants you to shut up and do as you are told.

The system that has controlled you doesn’t want you to think on your own because it knows that if you do, you will call out the system for the evil oppressive control mechanism that it is. Believe it or not, the system that has bred you doesn’t even care if you get the flu or not, only that you shut up and take your flu vaccine.

Fact of the matter is that the system is a dying system, whereas you are a living creature with a free will, free thoughts and free desires. It (the system you were led to believe was real) doesn’t want you to realize you have naturally given inalienable rights to express yourself in any way you want as long as you don’t harm others in doing so. It doesn’t want you to acknowledge that there might be a higher power much greater than any government whose natural laws could never be challenged ethically by any man.

Now can you see why every single war is a crime? One of the biggest lies you were taught was to believe in and support war; yet did you ever stop to think, what is war? War is the process of cold murder of other human beings just like you. In the political process of war this murderous process is colorized and packaged using a marketing technique known as ‘propaganda’. Yes, all those ceremonies at the beginning of every college football game were a lie. You know the ones where they always portray military people to be more honorable and worthy of praise than all the heroes throughout history lumped into one. Using this marvelous technique any criminal agenda can be portrayed as a good, noble, necessary and even important agenda even if it means killing hundreds, thousands or millions of innocent men women and children.

Your freedom begins right here and right now. Say NO to all forms of murder and violence and you will be free. Look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself that every single person murdered in the ‘war’ propaganda campaign is YOU, or someone you could know or be a friend to. The true psychopaths that are uncontrollably violent will behave violently and that is why we have a justice system to address the crimes they commit. War, however, has nothing to do with legal process of punishing local criminals; it involves cold blooded murder at a wide global scale for a political agenda.

Think of this the next time you are watching a college football game or you go to a stadium and you see the system glorifying military personnel as heroes and saints. They may have good intentions, but unfortunately they are part of a much larger evil operation that murders people on a large scale. The horrors of war are too much for even a kid like you to truly comprehend unless you’ve been there.

That is why love, compassion, truth, honesty, humility, honor and good will for all of humanity -- not just the ones that wear OUR uniforms -- is the only way to live your life. Life is not a sport; it’s not a soccer game or a football game where you can wish for the loss of one team (by murdering them) while cheering for the victory of another.

Say YES to the future of humanity and dump the lies that you have been taught. Save your life now and get on the path to freedom and truth. Turn off your TV and violent video games and find new constructive and productive ways to stay occupied. Learn a new hobby, play an instrument, question things and read books and articles about true history, do your own research on things, build something or find new exciting ways to use your mind other than allowing the system to pour their messages into your head every day of your life with their video games, commercials, TV shows and movies. Unplug from the matrix of lies and realize the greatness that is in you.

This greatness that is in you is the greatest thing on Earth; it’s the greatest threat to big corrupt governments, and realizing this greatness in you is the key to unlocking the freedom humanity is crying for. Look at the clock and try to see if you can sense the desperation humanity is in. Try to feel the pain and suffering humanity has sunken into because of the mass control the system with its 4 branches has done to all of us. You may not see the suffering because the matrix you’ve been surrounded by doesn’t want you to see it, but it’s very much there.

Take a trip to the Middle East, a small ‘third world’ country or anywhere around the world if you are old enough and try to see how different the world is from how it has been presented to you. If you do, you will begin to notice that the ‘war on terror’ is really a ‘war on freedom’. Discover the true nature of your government's partnership with the same people you were told were supposed to be the ‘terrorists’. Step back and try to see how words like ‘terrorist’ have the same political use as the word ‘communist’ had in your parents or grandparents' days. These words are just buzz words to get you to feel anxious and fearful so that you shut up, willingly give up all your freedoms and do as you are told in exchange for a perceived government 'safety' from this engineered threat.

Consider how easy it is for government to use this tactic to destroy freedom. Notice how government then replaces this loss of freedom with fascism, totalitarianism, tyranny and big government ideologies that disregard all forms of basic human rights. Try to see how government uses this blueprint to continue expanding this fascist ideology.

When you see the difference in how people from different parts of the world see the world and how these perceptions of the world are determined by your own personal experience (which in your case has likely been entirely controlled by TV, Hollywood, the Public Education System and corporate media) this awareness will change your life forever. You will then see that you are the answer to the problems of the world today; you are the hero that can stop the arriving global government that looks to destroy all forms of human freedom and expression, even if you don’t understand it yet.

The hero inside you is like a time bomb waiting to go off. Can you hear the ticking? Can you feel the power? Your time to stand against the global government that hates humanity is now; you are the future, you are the unidentified hero humanity is waiting for. So what are you waiting for, take the leap of faith now; nothing can stop you, except you.

Parents please share this letter with your kids; kids please share this letter with your friends and family."

Teach Them That Usury and
Extortion
 are Great Evils


 I would like them to know the evils of the banking system (i.e. the extortion and usury system), especially how the Madrake Mechanism works, whereby the banks are able to create money out of nothing, "lend" it at usury, and charge massive interest and principal debt repayments, to the borrowers, who are shackled with this evil for most of their lives (in the case of home mortgages).

Teach Them The True Value of
Simplicity and Self-Sufficiency

I would like them to learn that perhaps one of the biggest deceits of life is the love of money and affluence. I tried very hard to teach my son, the true value of simplicity in life, and this is best expressed in returning to a life based on true community and self-sufficiency. Arthur Gish is the author of one of the best books I've ever seen on this topic. It is called Beyond The Rate Race, and I recommend that you get yourself a copy of it. Here is a brief excerp from the book:

"Many people know of no other way to find security except through affluence. They know of no alternatives to the present system and so believe that security comes with a college degree, life insurance, and bank accounts and consider anything else to be false security. Let's examine life insurance. First it is expensive and a poor investment. Higher income people do not buy it. We need to be aware of what the money is invested in. Do we want dividends and personal security at the expense of war, consumer waste, and other forms of evil and oppression?

Consider also the effects of receiving large insurance settlements. Studies have shown this to be devastating for many families. Often it leads to a drastic change of life-style and values, and sometimes to personal disaster. Frequently the money is quickly squandered.

Life insurance is a way of denying the reality of death. It is better for my wife and children to recognize now that one day they may have to carry on without me. This is one way for me to recognize her liberation and competence. If she received a large payment at my death, she might experience a false security and our friends might think she is well cared for and had no needs. Better insurance is trust in God, close relationships within a community of faith, and confidence that the survivors can carry on. True security is found only in relation to other people and to God, not in things."  (Gish, Arthur G, Beyond The Rate Race, Keats Publishing, New Canaan, Connecticut, 1973, pp. 100-101.)

Poor Nations are Happiest   


January 12, 2013  

Source: http://www.henrymakow.com/poor-nations-are-happiest.html

According to scientists, people in poor countries can find joy in the moral satisfaction that often is not available to citizens of the developed countries.

By Sergei Vasilenkov
Pravda.ru
(edited/abridged by henrymakow.com)

Citizens of poor countries are the happiest in the world.  

 

Gallup discovered that citizens of the poorest countries were the happiest. The list of the happiest countries was topped by El Salvador, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Trinidad and Tobago. What is the secret of Hispanic happiness? 

 

People were asked five questions, all about the ways they spent the previous day. They were asked whether they felt joy, whether they felt rested, and how often they laughed and smiled. In addition, the researchers asked whether their interviewees felt respected by their peers, as well as whether they learned something new the day before. 

 

According to Gallup, the happiest people were the citizens of El Salvador, Panama and Paraguay. The top ten included 7 countries in Latin America - in addition to the above, Venezuela, Ecuador, Guatemala and Costa Rica. Russia, however, did not even make it to the top one hundred of the happiest countries, occupying one of the lowest spots (along with Iran and Algeria).

The US came 33rd, tied with Chile, China, Sweden and Swaziland. Canada, Netherlands, Ireland and Denmark, meanwhile, all cracked the top 20. 

 

PANAMA

First place was occupied by a small equatorial country in Latin America - Panama, whose population is only 3.4 million people (according to 2010 census).

Panama's mortality rate is among the lowest in the world-196th. Panamanian men live on average 74 years, women - 80. In Panama, the vast majority of the population lives in urban areas - 73 percent. According to UN statistics, the per capita GDP in 2009 was nearly 12 thousand dollars. 

 

The level of health care in the country is also high. Hospitals and clinics boast state of the art equipment and doctors are highly skilled. Incidentally, nearly all of Panama's qualified doctors have been trained in the U.S. The cost of health insurance in the country does not exceed $800 dollars, and the price of medical services is two times lower than in the United States.   

 

 The country's favorable climate plays a significant role. The temperatures remain virtually unchanged all year round at the level of 25-28C degrees in the afternoon.  

 

Despite the fact that El Salvador and Paraguay took second and third places in the Gallup ranking, experts still say that the standard of living in these countries is low. The urban population in these countries is under 60 percent, and the economy is based on agriculture. The unemployment rate in these countries is somewhat higher, but it is easier to find a job here than in Panama - mainly in logging, and cotton and sugar cane plantations. 

 

Average life expectancy in other Latin American countries, however, is the same as in Panama - 73 years for men and 79 for women. However, the level of health care in these less developed countries is poor. For example, this year, Paraguayan doctors sounded the alarm as the country faced an epidemic of yellow fever.   

 

MATERIALISM = MISERY

If the standard of living in Panama is comparable to that of developed European countries, residents of such countries as El Salvador, Uruguay, Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago cannot boast similar conditions. Scientists explain their happiness by historically formed mentality of these people who see happiness in things other than material goods. According to them, people in poor countries can find joy in the moral satisfaction that often is not available to citizens of the developed countries. 

 

Some of the world's media cited an example of two attitudes - a successful and wealthy businessman from Singapore and a poor woman who sells tea in the streets of Paraguay.

 "We keep working and don't get paid enough," complained the 33-year Singaporean Richard Lowe.

"Wealth does not bring happiness, but only problems. Life is too short, and there is no place for sadness," said Maria Solis of Paraguay. 

 

Singapore , Iraq and Armenia closed the list of the happiest countries in the world. It may be true that it is not the standard of living in a particular country, but the attitude of the citizens that matters.

Comment from Tony:

I can't vouch for the absolute accuracy of the below article from Pravda.ru but the trend is interesting.  I may have been mislead in my belief that the actually poorest countries in the world would be in Central Africa.  Or Southern Asia.

Observation seems to bear out that the unhappiness of the "Western" totally materialist rat race, often considered Jewish in concept, compares unfavorably to "third world" apparent general satisfaction in having enough to get by, with real priorities geared toward more worthwhile priorities such as family and religion.   Are not the named "happiest" nations basically Catholic?

These small nations are obviously not caught up in any foolish, prideful, competition to be considered top dog on the world totem pole in any category and thus would be much more "laid back" than "developed" nations.  Too, unlike the Protestantism of most of the "developed" world, Catholicism does not imply that enjoying life is a deadly sin.  Nor does it condone such inhuman "rights" as child murder (abortion) which is the leading cause of death in the United States these days.  How many mothers who have murdered their children in this manner are subconsciously haunted and never really at ease in life by reason of having committed that heinous, criminal sin?

Of course, most of the reasoning here on my part is conjecture so it would be interesting to have the input of anyone on this list who has real knowledge of the general population of any these named nations concerning the accuracy of the report of their happiness. 

Teach Them About Being True
Sovereign Human Beings

I would like them to know that God created them as sovereign human beings. This has been taken away by the nation-state system, through a number of devious tricks, one of the most diabolical being the creation of the "strawman." They need to know about their "Strawman," and why they, and everyone else on this planet, has one. Of course, they will need to understand how to unshackle themselves from this monster, and regain their long-lost sovereignity.

The most sovereign unit on the planet is the family, and everyone has to put that understanding back in place, ahead of governments, school teachers, business people, false religious teachers, actors and other media shills, and treacherous politicians. Specifically this means that all people who wish to attain true Godly fulfillment in life must return to the true individual roles that were given to the family members. That is, we must clearly understand the meaning of our lives--i.e. to attain eternal life--by understanding the roles assigned to us in the Creation:

The material in this section comes from the excellent article, “Role of the Family,” by Tom Schardt and Jeremy Hatchett, edited by Wade Cox, 2007, Edition 1.0 20071112-20071112. The article is from here:

http://www.logon.org and http://www.ccg.org 

“In the human family, God-ordained responsibilities are given to the father, mother, children, brother, sister, and grandparents in order to maintain the family's physical and spiritual welfare. What are these responsibilities? This paper will deal with those questions. It is crucial for society's survival to understand God's purpose for the family, and vital to understand each member's responsibility within the family structure.”

Unfortunately, while this is a good article, it suffers from a major defect that the authors does not understand that the minimum age for baptism is 30 years, and the consequences of this stunning fact for all members of the family, right through all living generations. So keep that in mind as you read.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Role of the Father 

 

“The role of the father in the family is as the representative of the Almighty God and Father.  His responsibility is as provider for the family’s needs of sustenance, leadership and protection in both physical and spiritual matters.  

  

It is no small matter if the father denies the material provisions of his wife and children, as we see from Paul's rebuke of the ones who did not look after their family's needs.  

  

1Timothy 5:8  But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially his family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.  

  

This is also seen in Solomon's mocking the lazy man to stir him to action in Proverbs 6:6-11. 

While the responsibility of breadwinner is given to the father when God told him that he would eat bread in the sweat of his face (Gen. 3:19), he is also responsible and cannot neglect the spiritual provisions of the family.   

  

Before the priesthood was established in Israel the father had responsibility to sacrifice on his family's behalf, as we see from Abraham's example in Genesis 12:8 and Job's in Job 1:5.  As the co-educator with the mother of the children, the father has been given the main responsibility to lead the family in teaching the Law of God (Ex. 12:26-27; Deut. 6:6-7; Prov. 22:6; Eph. 6:4).  

  

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be on your heart.  7 And you shall teach them to your sons, and shall speak of them as you sit in your house, and as you walk in the way, and as you are lying down, and as you are rising up. (LITV) 

  

Ephesians 6:4 And fathers, do not provoke your children, but nurture them in the discipline and admonition of the Lord. (LITV) 

  

Proverbs 22:6  Train up a boy on the opening of his way, even when he is old, he will not turn aside from it. (LITV)

As spiritual leader, the father has the responsibility as spiritual protector to educate against evil practices and habits of the world that are becoming more commonplace to our children and their peers, while running contrary to the Law of God. 

  

Romans 16:19 For your obedience reached to all; therefore, I rejoice over you. But I desire you to be truly wise as to good, but simple toward evil. (LITV) 

  

If we are to be innocent about what is evil and teach our children the same then we must not allow them to be exposed to the type of entertainment in television, movies, video games, and the Internet that is contrary to the Law of God. It is easy to use modern media and entertainment as a substitute parent, but even if the messages are benign, any of these in excess will instil idleness in a child's character. See the paper The Devil's Designs (No. 43). 

  

With the role of spiritual leader also comes the responsibility of discipline for the children. We know from the Psalms and Proverbs that children are not inherently good, and that a natural bias toward evil is in every human being. David admitted to this sinful human nature that started from his birth. 

  

Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. 

  

Many of the Proverbs refer to the need of correcting the child from his errors in sin. 

  

Proverbs 22:15  Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a boy, the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. 

  

Proverbs 23:13-14  Do not withhold correction from a boy, for if you strike him with the rod, he will not die.  14 You shall strike him with the rod, and you shall deliver him from Sheol. LITV 

  

By correcting our children with the rod of correction in love we not only procure their lives from entering the grave too soon, but we also protect our lineage or otherwise our children's children. 

  

1Samuel 3:13 And I declare to him that I am judging his house forever, for the iniquity which he has known; for his sons have been making themselves vile, and he has not restrained them. 

  

Each child must be taught what is expected from them and where these boundaries lie, just as our heavenly Father does with us in giving His Law. Once children have been made aware of these standards the punishment administered for disobedience must be consistent, otherwise the child will naturally lose the proper fear of justice and respect for those in authority. Consistent correction will also reaffirm that our Father in Heaven means what He says, and doesn't make false threats. According to Scripture, to be permissive and to take the path of least resistance when correction is needed is, in essence, hating our children.   

  

Proverbs 13:24 He who spares the rod hates his son: but he who loves him disciplines him promptly.  

  

It is very clear that the father is held responsible for controlling his children's sinful tendencies through discipline. 

  

From the example in Judges we see what happens when righteous fathers fail to raise righteous children.  

  

Judges 2:10-22 And also all that generation was gathered to their fathers, and another generation arose after them who had not known Jehovah, nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.  11 And the sons of Israel did evil in the sight of Jehovah, and served the Baals.  12 And they forsook Jehovah, the God of their fathers, who brought them out from the land of Egypt. And they went after other gods, of the gods of the peoples who were around them, and bowed themselves to them, and angered Jehovah.  13 Yea, they forsook Jehovah, and served Baal and the Ashtoreths.  14 And the anger of Jehovah glowed against Israel, and He gave them into the hand of plunderers; and they plundered them. And He sold them into the hand of their enemies all around, and they were not able to stand before their enemies any longer.  15 Wherever they went, the hand of Jehovah was against them for evil, as Jehovah had spoken, and as Jehovah had sworn to them. And it distressed them very much.  16 And Jehovah raised up judges, and they saved them from the hand of their plunderers.  17 But they also did not listen to their judges, but went whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves to them. They quickly turned aside out of the way in which their fathers walked to obey the commands of Jehovah. They did not do so.  18 And when Jehovah raised up judges to them, then Jehovah was with the judge, and rescued them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge. For Jehovah took pity because of their groaning before their oppressors, and those that crushed them.  19 And at the death of the judge, it happened that they would turn and act more corruptly than their fathers, to go after other gods, to serve them, and to bow themselves to them. And they did not fall away from their own doings, and from their stubborn way.  20 And the anger of Jehovah glowed against Israel. And He said, Because this nation has transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and has not listened to My voice, 21 I also from now on will not dispossess any from before them of the nations that Joshua left when he died; 22 so that by them I may test Israel, whether they are keeping the way of Jehovah, to go in it, as their fathers kept it, or not. (LITV) 

  

In our world’s governments of today, Communism, Socialism and even the Democracy/Republic have given the State the responsibility to educate the nation’s children, and have made steps through law to weaken the role of the father in the family by removing his authority over his children at a young age. This has moved the basic element of society further away from the family and closer to the individual. Our literature, media, and even our schools reinforce these ideas of individual superiority, while our governments pass laws in support of diminishing the role of father and mother in the family. As a result, the respect and obedience of children towards their parents has diminished, leaving a greater degradation of the people of the nation, despite the general distress that has formed toward the separation of these most crucial familial bonds of authority and order that God instituted through His creation. 

  

With this increased revolt toward discipline in the home, an increase towards idleness and perversity occurs, which results in the loss of the wealth reserved for the children by the work of their fathers and grandfathers. A few generations of this, and the father's authority is lost, and the society begins its downward spiral.   

  

Charles de Ribbe, writing about Le Play’s studies on what composes the social body, makes pertinent comments for this generation of families that lack paternal authority and our governments that support them. 

  

“If we return authority to the father, we will restore the ministry of God in the temporal order .… The more time that passes, the more we become aware that it is necessary to return to the family its autonomy. It is impossible to constitute good governments with men given up to error. In the sad state in which we find ourselves, salvation can only come from that unique authority, which, by virtue of natural law, remains devoted to its subordinates. Only paternal authority can accomplish that which is superior to the force of any public authority.” 

  

The Scriptures make clear that lines of authority are ordained by God and are meant for the stabilization of the family and state. 

  

Romans 13:1-7 Let every soul be subject to higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, but the existing authorities have been ordained by God.  2 So that the one resisting authority has opposed the ordinance of God, and the ones opposing will receive judgment to themselves.  3 For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. And do you desire not to fear the authority? Do the good, and you will have praise from it; 4 for it is a servant of God to you for the good. But if you practice evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword in vain; for it is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to the one practicing bad things.  5 Because of this, it is necessary to be subject, not only on account of wrath, but also on account of conscience.  6 For on this account you also pay taxes, for they are ministers of God, always giving attention to this very thing.  7 Then give to all their dues: to the one due tax, the tax; to the one due tribute, the tribute; to the one due fear, the fear; to the one due honor, the honor. (LITV) 

  

A warning from God comes through the prophet Malachi regarding this generation of man.  

 

"See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse." (Mal. 4:5-6) 

  

It is evident from this verse that the fathers and their children of the end times are against each other, and have lost sight of the relationships that have been ordained by God through the keeping of His Law; and that the Elijah prophesied to come will bring this truth of the family structure to the forefront once again.

The father's life is the example of what the sons are to become and what the daughters are to look for in a husband. He is the authority figure of the family as the true image of the Almighty God, who is the universal Father of all. The father, through God’s delegated authority, is the transmitter of the lives of his children and is the conserver of life, just as God the Father is in the ultimate sense.  In like manner, the children are sanctified by his wisdom and teaching of the Law (2Chr. 13:18; Jn. 17:19; 1Cor. 7:14).  He is the image of the Father of all and should behave according to this image as representative, as the giver of life and sustainer of those lives of his children by raising them up in the knowledge and love of the Eternal Father. His children will reflect upon their creator Father from the example their father gives them. See also the paper Christianity and Childrearing (No. 186).

  

Role of the Mother 

 

“The mother’s role is one of nurturer and the one through whom life is given. The father and the mother procreate the children, symbolic of the Father with His sons creating man in the beginning. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” (from Gen. 1:26-27). Each child born in turn is made in the likeness of its physical father and mother. 

  

In John 1:3-4 speaking of a son of Eloah, the word of God, “All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men (LITV). As the Father gave life to man through the Word, the father in the physical state gives life to his children through the mother. Then the mother takes the more active role in bringing life to the child by carrying the unborn child in the womb for the gestation period, and developing close ties to her offspring to whom she helped give life. Once born, it is then her responsibility as primary caregiver to nurture the child through feeding and interaction to see that the child grows to its full potential to eventually replace the father or mother in these leadership roles of procreators and teachers as heads of their own families. 

  

1Timothy 5:14 Therefore, I desire the young women to marry,to bear children, to rule the house, giving no occasion to the adversary on account of reproach. (LITV) 

  

Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a boy let loose causes shame to his mother. LITV 

  

From this passage in Proverbs we see that it is a responsibility of the mother to educate and instruct the children in the Law of God as a part of childrearing. Her failure to do so brings shame upon her. 

 

In the early years of the children's lives the father assists the mother in childrearing as well as being the counsellor and source of strength of the family. As the children mature these educational roles equal out and sons will naturally be more influenced by their fathers and daughters by their mothers. Each child's development will be enriched by the unity between the father and mother. There is much to be gained in the stability and security of the children's lives by witnessing the outward love and affection of a husband toward his wife and vice versa with the gifts and acts of love from day to day that make the other feel special and loved. 

  

Along with sharing the responsibility of childrearing, the mother/wife also has the responsibility of managing the domestic operations of the family, which include keeping the home orderly and preparing healthy meals according to the Law of God. She assists her husband in the duties of tithing, honouring the Law of God and the implementation of and keeping holy the Sabbaths of God. See the paper Role of the Christian Woman (No 62).” (From Role of the Family, by Tom Schardt and Jeremy Hatchett, edited by Wade Cox.)

 

 

Also see Appendix A, “The Importance of Maternal Love.”

 

Role of the Children 

 

“The roles of son and daughter are ones that ultimately replacetheir parents as father and mother, and then grandfather and grandmother.  It is the process of being student first and then teacher. In the same way humans are being taught by God through His spiritual sons, or elohim, to become gods or elohim. This is also well depicted by the role of either older brother or sister with authority being extended through them from the parents to help educate the younger children of the family. When this granted authority to the elder siblings is taken lightly or even abused, it runs parallel with the actions and punishment of the disobedient spiritual sons of God. The elder sibling that takes this granted authority to care for with utmost sincerity could be likened to the role of our elder brother Jesus Christ.  

  

Our Eternal Father seeks obedience (1Sam. 15:22). Then Samuel said: "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams”. And He requires obedience be given to the fathers and mothers from their children directed from the Fifth Commandment  (Ex. 20:12 and Deut. 5:16, cf. Eph. 6:2-3). 

  

Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (KJV) 

  

Deuteronomy 5:16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (KJV) 

  

Due to the nature of love that flows from our heavenly Father to His children, the necessity of this Law is greater than the parents’ duty to their children. 

  

The Father is mentioned first here in these two instances, but the mother is mentioned in Leviticus 19:3: 

 

“Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.” 

  

In all three verses the father and mother are treated and seen as equal. The position of the mother is clear, and whatever honour the father receives so does the mother. She is his equal and obtains equal reverence ordained by God's command. [Nazarene Remnant comment: Neither the husband or the wife are to abuse the particular strengths given to them by God. That is, the husband must not at any time abuse his physical strength, and the wife must not abuse her physical beauty.End NR Comment] 

 

 The New Testament backs obedience toward parents from their children. 

  

Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. (KJV) 

  

Colossians 3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. (KJV)

 

See also the paper Law and the Fifth Commandment (No. 258)

 

This command of God to honour one’s parents comes with the promise of prolonged days upon the land that God gives to us. The repercussion of disobeying God by mocking this Law and dishonouring our parents is to have our lives shortened upon the land. To show disrespect to one's parents was to God one of the worst crimes. 

 

Exodus 21:15 Any man who gives a blow to his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death.  

  

The honour owed to parents is dually owed to the grandparents.  

 

Leviticus 19:32  "You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.” 

  

When the youth dishonour and behave proudly against the honourable, lawful, and aged, then a degenerate and disorderly society form in the land. 

 

Isaiah 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.” 

 

Role of the Grandparents 

 

[Nazarene Remnant comment: The role of the grandparents is central to the proper functioning of the family under God’s Law, since their obedience and example alone provides the sanctification and protection of their family members (their own sons and daughters and grandchildren) who have not yet reached the age of being accepted back into God’s family. … this critical age is 30 years.End NR Comment] 

 

“The grandparents of the family are responsible to hold the family to the core values of the Laws of God that they were brought up in and educated by. They are to anchor the family lines to the Law of God so that it doesn't sway to and fro with the doctrines of the false religions and customs of this world. 

  

The grandparents have the responsibility to ensure that the children are staying on the narrow path and leading their children under the instruction that the generations before have been brought up in. 

  

In recent generations in the Western society of the United States with the development of the nuclear family, children begin to alienate themselves from their parents as soon as they exit their youth. When society takes precedence over family our children will be sent away to schools of higher education, which begins the separation of the continuous life of the family that has been the core of instruction of the Laws of God. These migratory patterns then move into man's employment, and even though industries are local, man becomes the mover when trouble comes to his current job. He searches for a new location to employ himself and may or may not take his family with him.  Sometimes this separation of the father leads to months, then years, then to abandonment and eventually divorce that tears apart even the nuclear family itself. 

 

[Nazarene Remnant comment:When we abdicate our educational and training responsibility to our children, by handing these sacred functions over to the satanic state system, we visit all manner of trouble upon our children and all future generations. Here is what one humanist said about the state and private school system: 

 

“Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teachings?” (Charles F. Potter, Humanist.) 

 

And this humanist, or more correctly, satanist, makes no bones about the importance of the “education” of our children to them: Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insanebecause he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well –by creating the international child of the future.”(Dr. Chester M. Pierce, Psychiatrist, address to the Childhood International Education Seminar, 1973.) 

 

Henry Makow is spot-on when he says that by sending our children along to be schooled by the state, we lose our children to the state (i.e. satan): 

 

“Growing up means recognizing that other people are special in God's eyes too. Think of a child that doesn't want to grow up. One who thinks he can do anything he wants. Who doesn't have to consider others. Who is never wrong and so never admits it. Who thinks any opposition must be motivated by irrational hatred i.e. ‘anti-Semitism’ and not his own behavior. Who wants the State to be his family and look after him. Think arrested development. Think Illuminism and Communism. Think modern man. Think New World Order.” (Henry Makow, Is "The Riddle of Anti Semitism" a "Hate Message"?  http://www.henrymakow.com/000612.html) End NR Comment] 

 

With the loss of extended families in communities which are the backbone to the clan, tribe, and nations, we degenerate into a loveless and disrespectful people that is warned about in Isaiah 3: 5. In the nuclear family all honour dissipates toward the grandparents and they are left to die away from their children and grandchildren that were once dependent on them. As they are deprived of the love and affection of their offspring they live out their last days pining for their progeny in old folks' homes. In some instances with the mentally unstable and severely unhealthy, other care such as nursing facilities are required to support them, but the idea of the elderly among us as an inconvenience to our nuclear family is becoming more and more prominent. The repercussion of the failing to keep the Fifth Commandment then becomes very apparent and days in the land begin to shorten for each society that treads upon this Law of God. 

  

Restoring honour to the aged in our families by looking after our parents into their final years of life allows for acculturation and socialization within the Laws of God to be passed from one generation to the next, and instil even further in children the respect for authority toward their elders and toward God.” (From Role of the Family, by Tom Schardt and Jeremy Hatchett, edited by Wade Cox.)

[Nazarene Remnant comment:There are three vital truths that the family system must ensure is taught, and taught well, to all of its members when they are mature enough to understand them:

 

  1. We Must Teach A Balanced View About God's Character. 

 

  1. We Must Teach The Truth About Being “Born Again.”

 

  1. We Must Teach the Eternal Principle that Love is the Greatest Thing to be Modelled and Developed.

 

1. We Must Teach A Balanced View About God's Character. 

 

Instead of the true nature of God being taught to the people, the “wolves in sheep’s clothing”—aka the false shepherds, teach a jaundiced view of the Eternal Creator God. This is that He is all loving, all good, all merciful, and totally patient with us. You’ve heard it all over the world, I’m sure: the mantra that “God is love,” but more dangerously, that He is “unconditional love.” Now God is certainly these things, no doubt about that, but it’s not the total picture. This lie paints God as a “softie,” who will “be there for you,” no matter what you situation in life, or how you live it. It’s quaint (some would prefer to use the word cute), very appealing, and a total lie!  

 

The fact of the matter is that there is a side to God you had better know about, and understand real good! This is His judgment, wrath and severity. After all, He is the Supreme Being of the universe who setup the deadly serious system of good and evil on this planet, and the operation of the Moon, so that we would have to decide one way or the other! Ponder on that a moment. The author A W Pink, in his The Attitudes of God, points out that A study of the concordance will show that there are more references in Scripture to the anger, fury, and wrath of God, than there are to His love and tenderness. (Quoted in J I Packer, Knowing God, Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1973, p. 165.)  

 

 

For he will render to every man according to his works;to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, he will give eternal life; but to those who are factious and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and stress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honour and peace for every one who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality. 

 

For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. Note then the kindness and the severity of God; severity towards those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness, otherwise you too will be cut off. (Romans 2: 6-11; 11: 21-22). 

 

One side of God’s character is gentleness and kindness; the other is ruthless severity. They exist side-by-side in Him. Just as we have forgotten about sin, we have forgotten that God absolutely hates sin, and in so doing we have forgotten about His wrath and anger. 

 

John MacArthur, in his little article, The Goodness and the Severity of God, reminds us of the need to really add the fear of God to our lives: 

 

Ironically, this overemphasis on divine beneficence actually works against a sound understanding of God's love. It has given multitudes the disastrous impression that God is kindly but feeble, or aloof, or simply unconcerned about human wickedness. Is it any wonder that people with a such a concept of God defy His holiness, take His love for granted, and presume on His grace and mercy? Certainly no one would fear a deity like that.  

Yet Scripture tells us repeatedlythat fear of Godis the very foundation of true wisdom(Job 28:28; Ps. 111:10; Prov. 1:7; 9:10; 15:33; Mic. 6:9). People often try to explain the sense of those verses away by saying that the "fear" called for is a devout sense of awe and reverence. Certainly the fear of God includes awe and reverence, but it does not exclude literal holy terror. “It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall be your dread” (Isa. 8:13).  

We must recapture some of the holy terror that comes with a right understanding of God's righteous anger. We need to remember that God's wrath does burn against impenitent sinners (Ps. 38:1-3). That reality is the very thing that makes His love so wonderful. We must therefore proclaim these truths with the same sense of conviction and fervency we employ when we declare the love of God. It is only against the backdrop of divine wrath that the full significance of God's love can be truly understood. That is precisely the message of the cross of Jesus Christ. After all, it was on the cross that God's love and His wrath converged in all their majestic fullness.  

Only those who see themselves as sinners in the hands of an angry God can fully appreciate the magnitude and wonder of His love. In this regard our generation is surely at a greater disadvantage than any previous age. We have been force-fed the doctrines of self-esteem for so long that most people don't really view themselves as sinners worthy of divine wrath. On top of that, religious liberalism, humanism, evangelical compromise, and ignorance of the Scriptures have all worked against a right understanding of who God is. Ironically, in an age that conceives of God as wholly loving, altogether devoid of wrath, most people are tragically ill-equipped to understand what God's love is all about!  

The simple fact is that we cannot appreciate God's love until we have learned to fear Him. We cannot know His love apart from some knowledge of His wrath. We cannot study the kindness of God without also encountering His severity. And if the church of our generations does not regain a healthy balance soon, the rich biblical truth of divine love is likely to be obscured behind what is essentially a liberal, humanistic concept.” (From: http://www.biblebb.com/files/mac/love.htm)  

 

Another pastor of this fallen world finished his sermon with these words … 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to know that I love preaching about the love of God and His grace, and His mercy, but one of the great deficiencies in the pulpit today is keeping the character of God in balance. So much is talked about His love, little is talked about His severity and His judgment. We live in a time when people want to hear things that tickle their ears and somehow makes them forget the realities of the end of the line, but as your pastor I want you to know just as sure as we are sitting here today, the day will come when we'll all stand before the eternal judge. And what we have done with Jesus Christ, either accepting Him, we will hear those wonderful words when we go into His presence, well done thou good and faithful servant; but if we live our lives rejecting His love and His mercy and His grace, when we stand there on that eternal day we will hear those words, depart from Me, I never knew you.  

 

It's sad to live a life without God, but it's a tragedy to die without God. That's hell.” 

 

Keep that always in mind, and do your bit by pointing out to all those people who lie about the character of God, that they had better learn to fear Him before they start taking Him cheaply. Hold on to both aspects of God, the goodness, and the severity of God. God is love, true, but He is also “a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12: 29). Remember thatgenuine repentance is the only choice we have that will allow us to avoid God's severity and His wrath. 

 

Consequently, the false shepherds are not educating their flock about the retributive justice of God … 

 

“Modern man’s way is to turn a blind eye to all wrongdoing as long as he safely can. He tolerates it in others, feeling that there, but for the accident of circumstances, goes he. Parents hesitate to correct their children, and teachers to punish their pupils, and the public puts up with vandalism and anti-social behaviour of all sorts with scarcely a murmur. The accepted maxim seems to be that as long as evil can be ignored, it should be; one should only punish as a last resort, and then only so far as is necessary to prevent the evil having too grievous social consequences. Willingness to tolerate and indulge evil up to the limit is seen as a virtue, while living by fixed principles of right and wrong is censured by some as doubtfully moral. In our pagan way, we take it for granted that God feels as we do. The idea that retribution might be the moral law of God’s world, and an expression of His holy character, seems to modern man quite fantastic: those who uphold it find themselves accused of projecting on to God their own pathological impulses of rage and vindictiveness. Yet the Bible insists throughout that this world which God in His goodness has made is a moral world, in which retribution is as basic a fact as breathing. God is the judge of all the Earth, and He will do right, vindicating the innocent, if such there be, but punishing (in the Bible phrase, ‘visiting their sins upon’)law breakers (cf. Gen. 18: 25). God is not true to Himself unless He punishes sin. And unless one knows and feels the truth of this fact, that wrongdoers have no natural hope of anything from God but retributive judgment, one can never share the biblical faith in divine grace.” (Packer, J I, Knowing God, pp. 144-145.)  

 

 

What Really is the Trouble Here? 

 

“Clearly, the theme of God’s wrath is one about which the biblical writers feel no inhibitions whatever. Why, then, should we? Why, when the Bible is vocal about it, should we feel obliged to be silent? What is it that makes us awkward and embarrassed when the subject comes up, and prompts us to soft-pedal it and hedge when we are asked about it? What lies at the bottom of our hesitations and difficulties? We are not thinking now of those whose dismissal of the idea of divine wrath means only that they are not prepared to take any part of the biblical faith seriously. We are thinking, rather, of the many who count themselves ‘insiders,’ who have firm beliefs about God’s love and pity, and the redeeming work of the Lord Jesus Christ, and who follow Scripture robustly on other things, yet who boggle at robustly echoing it on this point. What really is the trouble here” (Packer, J I, p. 166.)  

 

“… we must seek to wean [the people] from this habit—[of dissociating the thought of God’s goodness from that of His severity]—since nothing but misbelieve is possible as long as it persists.” (Packer, J I, p. 177.) 

 

2. We Must Teach The Truth About Being “Born Again.” 

 

In the Gospels Jesus had much to same about the concept that we must be born again. Yet today whole generations of so-called “born again” Christians are getting around the planet, thinking that this is an instantaneous happening, following upon their repentance, water baptism and consequent reception, they believe, of the Holy Spirit. Nothing could be further from the truth.  

 

For starters, water baptism is a symbolic washing away of sins repented of. It does not absolve you of current sin, and allow you to still practice that sin. There is a tremendously important point to be understood here. The best example I know to explain what I mean, is that of a divorced person who has “remarried” either another divorced person, or a single person. They (the new couple) do not know, nor have the false shepherds bothered to inquire deep enough about this, that what Jesus said about divorce is absolute: “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery” (Luke 16: 18). There are no exceptions to this rule, except porneia! (Explained a little further on.) It is from this that we get wedlock. Elsewhere in this book, you will find, almost certainly to your shock, that  a man and a women are permanently locked one to the other, once they begin sexual relations. Of course this fact will bring immense spiritual problems, when couples try to figure out the full meaning of this in their lives. 

The foundation for marriage, Jesus pointed out (Matthew 19), was God's instruction to our first parents in Eden: 

“Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined let not man put asunder.” (verse 3-8) 

False shepherds have taught lies to their flock, knowing that they wanted to hear “smooth” things at all times. Consequently they easily supplied them with what they wanted to hear. They normally introduce such smooth teaching in the same vein that was used by the serpent in the Garden of Eden. They set up the dialogue of the “religious question,” which is discussed elsewhere in this book, which goes something like this: “What then of Matthew's addition that divorce was a no-go for Christians 'except for unchastity'? (9: 9) Clearly Jesus could see that on rare occasions - because of 'unchastity' - even a Christian could be lawfully divorced.” But they ignore the facts, presented here by Paul: "But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife." (1 Corinthians 7: 11-39.) 

 

Let's look elsewhere for what moved Paul. By going to Romans 7: 2-3, we can be absolutely sure what was in Paul's heart: "For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress, but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man." And just for good measure he repeats the teaching in another place: "The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; ..." (1 Corinthians 7: 39.)  

“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I therefore take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who joins himself to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, 'The two shall become one.' But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Shun immorality. Every other sin which a man commits is outside the body; but the immoral man sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. “ (1 Corinthians 6: 15-20, RSV.)  

As I said earlier: all of this is clear, straight, unambiguous! The gist of the matter is that there are no grounds for divorce whatsoever, only grounds for separation, with a view to working through the problem according to the principle: “Fix, Forgive and Forget.” This great Law appliesin the churchas it does for the good governance of the world outside the church,again, with no exceptions. 

“The LORD has been witness between you and the wife [or husband] of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously; yet she is your companion and your wife by covenant. But did He not make them one, having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth. For the LORD God of Israel says that He hates divorce, for it covers one's garments with violence.” (Malachi 2:14-16).  

 

I have commented elsewhere that Matthew (Matthew 19: 3-9 and 5: 32) allows the exception of infidelity as the only ground for divorce. William Barclay has the truth of the matter:  


“Mark is the earliest gospel, and therefore nearest to the actual spoken words of Jesus, 
and there is little doubt that the original form is the absolute form,which allows no exceptions whatsoever.Even on general grounds, the stricter saying is much more likely to be the original, for the tendency is always to relax and not to intensify the demand.” (Barclay, William, The Plain Man's Guide to Ethics: Thoughts On The Ten Commandments, Fontana Books, London, 1973, p. 103.)  

 

It is an absurdity to teach that it is permissible, under Eternal Law, for marriages to be dissolved on the grounds of adultery, the very thing that the commandments expressly forbids. After all, a person would only need to go out and cheat on his or her spouse, if they wanted a divorce, according to this false scenario! In effect what this teaching really means is that there are only nine commandments, for the seventh commandment, “You shall not commit adultery,” under this view, really doesn't exist, because it can be made of no effect through the simple stratagem of committing adultery, the very thing the commandment legislates against! The truth of the matter is that all of the commandments are perfect, (God's Law is called "the perfect law of liberty" (James 1: 25), and with good reason: "The Law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul." (Psalms 19: 7) "Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5: 48) "Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus." (Colossians 1: 28) "The Rock, his work is perfect; for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is he. They have dealt corruptly with him, they are no longer his children because of their blemish; they are a perverse and crooked generation. Do you thus requite the Lord, you foolish and senseless people?" (Deuteronomy 32: 4-6, RSV.) "As for God, His way is perfect." Psalms 18: 30 ) and this meaningless view, just mentioned, has no validity. The seventh commandment has “teeth,” and the only thing that ends marriage is death. 

 

Moreover, it is important to understand that Matthew 5: 32 and 19: 9 are commonly referred to as the “exception clause,” where Jesus says that divorce is prohibited except on the grounds of the word porneia. This Greek word is sometimes translated “unchastity,” “impurity,” “lewd conduct,” or, less accurately, “adultery.” Many biblical scholars believe—correctly—that the exception clause refers only to marriages that were illegal in the first place, because they were within the forbidden degrees of blood relationships (see Leviticus 18: 6-16). Thus, people who found themselves in incestuous relationships would be required, under the Law, to end the relationship. 

 

Let marriage be held in honour among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge the immoral and adulterous” (Hebrews 13: 4). 

 

3. We Must Teach the Eternal Principle that Love is the Greatest Thing to be Modelled and Developed: 

 

Love is the supreme expression of wisdom, and it is the principle thing to learn in life. (The scriptures are full of teachings about the importance of love in all our lives: “Better [is] a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.” (Proverbs 15: 17) “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.” (Romans 13: 10) “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” (1 John 4: 7) “No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4: 12) We are all called to teach and model love, and it is, as we have seen, only learned in Godly families. The first principle about love, as Wade Cox reminds us, is the First Commandment: 

 

“The entire question of love is predicated upon the love of God as the First Great Commandment. Thus the first four Commandments of the Ten Commandments are a necessary key to the understanding of the love of mankind. So, the truth is essential not only to understanding the Faith, but also to an understanding of God Himself and thus to the retention of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit. It is not enough to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. Unless we do the will of the Father in Heaven we will not enter His Kingdom (Matthew 7: 21). 

 

The apostle Paul gave us the definitive statement on love when he said: 

 

“Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 

 

Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child, but when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-14, RSV) 

 

Wade Cox shows what the fruits of love are: 

 

“Joy …Joy is derived from the attainment of an aspect of the Plan of God, experienced by the individual, either by communion with God, or through the achievement of an individual in communion with God. Only through love can true joy be experienced. The joy that comes from self-gratification is transitory, being physical. 

  

Peace …Peace comes from the perfect relationship that flows from the love of God and the hope and faith that is predicated to Him. From the love of God we experience the love of our neighbour, which is the Second Great Commandment. 

  

Great peace have they who love the Lord. God is a God of Peace (Rom. 16:20; Phil. 4:9). God calls us to peace (1Cor. 7:15). He bruises Satan; we do not need to do that. To be spiritually minded is life and peace (Rom. 8:6). Peace comes from God our Father (Rom. 1:7; 1Cor. 1:3; Gal. 1:3; Col. 1:2; 1Thes. 1:1; 2Thes. 1:2; Tit. 1:4; Philem. 3). Thus, those that do not obey God are unable to have peace. Peace is predicated upon obedience. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked (Isa. 57:21). That is why peace not based upon the word of God will fail. They declare peace, and disaster will descend upon them unexpectedly. The text of Isaiah 57:19-21 is related to the whole question of the Blessings and Curses of Deuteronomy 28 (see the paper The Blessings and the Curses (No. 75)). 

  

Isaiah 57:19-21 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him. 20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. 21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. (KJV) 

  

We were also called to peace in marriage. While our spouses consent to live with us we should be centred on producing peace in our homes. Often this is very difficult, but there is no trial that we are not able to bear or from which God will not deliver us. 

  

Patience …Patience is essential to the bearing of the fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit. Christ addressed this problem in the Parable of the Sower. 

  

Luke 8:15-18  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. (KJV) 

  

What is being said is that as we work and study with the [Birthright] Holy Spirit we get more and more. If we don’t work, study and develop the [Birthright] Holy Spirit we get less and less. It just drains away from us. So we must pray, study and fast and work for the Kingdom of God in order to retain the [Birthright] Holy Spirit and grow with what we are doing.  

  

The hearing of the word is preliminary to keeping the word. Thus the word is the Commandments of God and the Testimony of Christ. From an understanding of the word and its adherence the fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit is made manifest. Thus, the activity that results from hearing and keeping the word of God declares the Spirit. Activity both good and bad is made manifest through the Spirit. Those who do not act on the word of God have what little understanding that they do possess removed over time. 

  

Through patience we possess our soul or being (Lk. 21:19). We learn patience from tribulation, or from suffering we attain endurance (RSV). This process is developed through the justification by faith through Christ and God’s love that has been poured out into our hearts through the [Birthright] Holy Spirit. 

 

Romans 5:1-5  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (KJV) 

  

Romans 5:1-5  Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the [Birthright] Holy Spirit which has been given to us. (RSV) 

  

Here we have patience or endurance proceeding from tribulation and then yielding experience, which is termed character. From experience or character we derive hope. We are not ashamed of our hope because of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit, which was given to us by the love of God 

  

Kindness or Gentleness …The word for kindness in the Hebrew is chesed. By implication it means piety when directed towards God. Rarely it means (by opposition) reproof or (subject) beauty. Hence it has the complicated sense of favour, good deed, (-liness, -ness), kindly, (loving-) kindness, merciful (kindness), mercy, pity, reproach, or wicked thing. The next sense from SHD 2619 is also favour, as a Hebrew name Hesed. 

  

The word used in Galatians 5:22-23, translated gentleness in the KJV and kindness in the RSV, is the Greek word chrestotes (SGD 5544) which is derived from chrestos (SGD 5543) meaning usefulness, that is, moral excellence in character or demeanour and hence gentleness, good(ness), kindness. The sense is thus a piety and gentleness of nature, which is hence able to be useful to the work of God. It has an intrinsic goodness of character. 

  

Goodness …The sense here of goodness is simple. It is derived from the Greek word agathosune (SGD 19) meaning goodness as virtue. 

  

Faithfulness or Faith …The word here is pistis (SGD 4102) being derived from persuasion (SGD 3982), i.e. credence. Morally it means conviction of religious truth or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher.  

  

It has the special meaning of reliance on Christ for salvation. Abstractly it means constancy in such profession. By extension it means reliance on the system of religious truth itself. Hence it has the meaning of assurance, belief, to believe, hence faith and fidelity. 

  

Hence a fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit is the faith in biblical truth and the word of God. The adherence to the Faith once delivered is sought with diligence and conviction. The denigration of the inspiration of the biblical texts is thus indicative of a problem with the [Birthright] Holy Spirit in the individual. 

  

Gentleness or Meekness …The word for gentleness is praotes (SGD 4236) and is derived from praos (gentle, SGD 4235). By implication it means humility and hence meekness.  

  

Self-control or Temperance …The word egkrateia (SGD 1466) [pronounced engkratiah] is derived from egkrates (SGD 1468) [pr. engkratace] which means to be strong in a thing or masterful, hence self- controlled in appetite and hence temperate. The meaning of this derivative is self-control and especially continence, which is concerned with self-restraint in the matter of sexual appetite (see Oxford Universal Dictionary). 

  

We saw the three pillars are love, faith and hope, but love is the greatest. Then from love we develop the other fruit. All of this is predicated upon or held together by truth. Truth is the overall stamp of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit. From truth we have these other concepts of joy, peace, patience, kindness or gentleness, goodness, faithfulness or faith, gentleness or meekness, then self-control and temperance. 

  

These elements thus follow one upon another to add up to the sum of the parts, which demonstrate the operation of the power of God in the individual. Each of the elect suffers from trials and tribulations in the development of Godly character. The overcoming of these aspects shows the development of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit in the individual.  

  

We can judge others and ourselves by the fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit. We are judged by society by the fruits of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit – what we do, what comes out of our mouth and how we operate one to another. The fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit is the real power of our faith and the centre of that love is based upon truth. If we haven’t got love we have nothing. That is the key fruit, but truth is the central objective and our God is a God of truth. All of this is tied together in truth, but certainly the fruit of the [Birthright] Holy Spirit is paramountly a function of love.” (From the article “Fruit of the Holy Spirit,” Edition 3.0 19951104-20000902-20070628, by Wade Cox, Christian Churches of God. Web sites: http://www.logon.org and http://www.ccg.org)

 

Having said all these wonderful and joyful things about love, I believe that the apostle Paul, and Wade Cox, left out the most vital of all truths about love. So, let us ponder on the words of Mary Hardy, who taught us this most profound truth: 

 

If you can’t control your emotions, you can’t demonstrate love.” 

 

But very few of us, even the most devout of Christians, have really understood how to teach this most vital of all life’s skills in cooperation with the Birthright Holy Spirit. That is why all Godly people should learn to have a “life of the mind,” so that they can learn the deeper aspects of love, properly understood. Parents and grandparents must break out of the laziness and narcissism that consumes them, and start teaching this kind of foundational wisdom to their children. An excellent teaching book on the subject of controlling our emotions is David D Burns', Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, published by the Information Australia Group, Melbourne, 1980. This book will give any diligent reader a “top flight” education in understanding and mastering their emotions, which is the prime prerequisite for demonstrating love.

The Pretense of Love is
a Dangerous Thing

I would like them to know the costs of pretense, and that when you do any kind of pretending, it's a dangerous game you play. Now of course there are all sorts of pretenses in life, like the pretense of love, or the pretense of learning (when you haven''t got the point about something)

This leads onto to a most important connected point, and that is about lying, again something that is very dangerous. But before a say a few words on lying, I'd like them to know that there are two forms of lying: lying by commission and by omission.

Teach Them What Is
True Education

Benjamin Franklin tells us why we should turn off the radio and TV, and, while we're at it, sack the state's school teachers ... or 

What Benjamin Franklin Learnt at His Parent's
Dinner Table

"Ben Franklin was born on Milk Street, Boston, on January 17, 1706. His father had seventeen children (four died at birth) by two wives. Ben was the youngest. Josiah, the father, was a candlemaker, not part of the gentry. His tombstone tells us he was "without an estate or any gainful employment" which apparently means his trade didn't allow wealth to be amassed. But, as the talkative tombstone continues, "By constant labor and industry with God's blessing they maintained a large family comfortably, and brought up thirteen children and seven grandchildren reputably."

"By way of example, Mr. Gatto details the lives of archetypal Americans like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Edison, who were independent, free-thinking leaders, none of whom spent more than two years in any kind of school, and yet all were leading productive, fulfilled lives by the time they were in their teens. Mr. Gatto argues that big business knew that the development of these kinds of individuals needed to be hindered. They were too unpredictable and insufficiently pliable." [1]

Writing to his own son at the age of sixty-five, Ben Franklin referred to his circumstances as "poverty and obscurity" from which he rose to a state of affluence, and to some degree, reputation. The means he used "so well succeeded" he thought posterity might like to know what they were. Some, he believed, "would find his example suitable to their own situations, and therefore, fit to be imitated."

At twelve he was bound apprentice to brother James, a printer. After a few years of that, and disliking his brother's authority, he ran away first to New York and soon after to Philadelphia where he arrived broke at the age of seventeen. Finding work as a printer proved easy, and through his sociable nature and ready curiosity he made acquaintance with men of means. One of these induced Franklin to go to London where he found work as a compositor and once again brought himself to the attention of men of substance. A merchant brought him back to Philadelphia in his early twenties as what might today be called an administrative assistant or personal secretary. From this association, Franklin assembled means to set up his own printing house which published a newspaper, The Pennsylvania Gazette, to which he constantly contributed essays.

At twenty-six, he began to issue "Poor Richard's Almanac," and for the next quarter century the Almanac spread his fame through the colonies and in Europe. He involved himself deeper and deeper in public affairs. He designed an Academy which was developed later into the University of Pennsylvania; he founded the American Philosophical Society as a crossroads of the sciences; he made serious researches into the nature of electricity and other scientific inquiries, carried on a large number of moneymaking activities; and involved himself heavily in politics. At the age of forty-two he was wealthy. The year was 1748.

In 1748, he sold his business in order to devote himself to study, and in a few years, scientific discoveries gave him a reputation with the learned of Europe. In politics, he reformed the postal system and began to represent the colonies in dealings with England, and later France. In 1757, he was sent to England to protest against the influence of the Penns in the government of Pennsylvania, and remained there five years, returning two years later to petition the King to take the government away from the Penns. He lobbied to repeal the Stamp Act. From 1767 to 1775, he spent much time traveling through France, speaking, writing, and making contacts which resulted in a reputation so vast it brought loans and military assistance to the American rebels and finally crucial French intervention at Yorktown, which broke the back of the British.

As a writer, politician, scientist, and businessman, Franklin had few equals among the educated of his day though he left school at ten. He spent nine years as American Commissioner to France. In terms only of his ease with the French language, of which he had little until he was in his sixties, this unschooled man's accomplishments are unfathomable by modern pedagogical theory. In many of his social encounters with French nobility, this candlemaker's son held the fate of the new nation in his hands, because he (and Jefferson) were being weighed as emblems of America's ability to overthrow England.

Franklin's Autobiography is a trove of clues from which we can piece together the actual curriculum which produced an old man capable of birthing a nation:

My elder brothers were all put apprentice to different trades. I was put to the grammar school at eight years of age, my father intending to devote me, as the tithe of his sons, to the services of the (Anglican) church. My early readiness in learning to read (which must have been very early, as I do not remember when I could not read) and the opinion of all his friends, that I should be a good scholar, encouraged him in this purpose...I continued, however, at grammar school not quite one year.

Young Ben was yanked from grammar school and sent to another type less ritzy and more nuts and bolts in colonial times: the "writing and arithmetic"school. There under the tutelage of Mr. Brownell, an advocate of "mild, encouraging methods," Franklin failed in arithmetic:

At ten years old I was taken home to assist my father in his business.... Accordingly I was employed in cutting wick for candles, filling the dipping mold and the molds for cast candles. Attending the shop, going on errands, etc. I disliked the trade, and had a strong inclination for the sea, but my father declared against it.

There are other less flattering accounts why Franklin left both these schools and struck out on his own at the age of ten--elsewhere he admits to being a leader of mischief, some of it mildly criminal, and to being "corrected" by his father--but causation is not our concern, only bare facts. Benjamin Franklin commenced school at third-grade age and exited when he would have been in the fifth to become a tallow chandler's apprentice.

A major part of Franklin's early education consisted of studying father Josiah, who turns out, himself, to be a pretty fair example of education without schooling:

He had an excellent constitution...very strong...ingenious...could draw prettily...skilled in music...a clear pleasing voice...played psalm tunes on his violin...a mechanical genius...sound understanding...solid judgment in prudential matters, both private and public affairs. In the latter, indeed, he was never employed, the numerous family he had to educate and the straitness of his circumstances keeping him close to his grade; but I remember well his being frequently visited by leading people, who consulted him for his opinion in affairs of the town or of the church...and showed a great deal of respect for his judgment and advice...frequently chosen an arbitrator between contending parties.

We don't need to push too hard to see a variety of informal training laboratories incidentally offered in this father/son relationship which had sufficient time to prove valuable in Franklin's own development, opportunities that would have been hard to find in any school.

Josiah drew, he sang, he played violin--this was a tallow chandler with sensitivity to those areas in which human beings are most human; he had an inventive nature ("ingenious") which must have provided a constant example to Franklin that a solution can be crafted ad hoc to a problem if a man kept his nerve and had proper self-respect. His good sense, recognized by neighbors who sought his judgment, was always within earshot of Ben. In this way the boy came to see the discovery process, various systems of judgment, the role of an active citizen who may become minister without portfolio simply by accepting responsibility for others and discharging that responsibility faithfully:

At his table he liked to have as often as he could some sensible friend or neighbor to converse with, and always took care to start some ingenious or useful topic for discourse, which might tend to improve the minds of his children. By this means he turned our attention towhat was good, just, and prudent in the conduct of life; and little or no notice was ever taken of what related to the victuals on the table ... I was brought up in such perfect inattention to those matters as to be quite indifferent what kind of food was set before me.

No course of instruction or quantity of homework could deliver Franklin's facility with language, only something like Josiah's incidental drills at the dinner table. We can see sharply through Franklin's memoir that a tallow chandler can indeed teach himself to speak to kings.

And there were other themes in the family Franklin's educational armory besides arts, home demonstrations, regular responsibility, being held to account, being allowed to overhear adults solving public and private problems, and constant infusions of good conversation:

He...sometimes took me to walk with him, and see joiners, bricklayers, turners, braziers, etc., at their work, that he might observe my inclination, and endeavor to fix it on some trade or other.... It has ever since been a pleasure to me to see good workmen handle their tools; and it has been useful to me, having learnt so much by it as to be able to do little jobs myself. As it is for most members of a literate society, reading was the largest single element of Franklin's educational foundation.

As it is for most members of a literate society, reading was the largest single element of Franklin's educational foundation.

From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books. Pleased with Pilgrim's Progress my first collection was of John Bunyan's works in separate little volumes. I afterwards sold them to enable me to buy R. Burton's Historical Collections; they were small chapman's books, and cheap, 40 to 50 in all. My father's little library consisted chiefly of books in polemic divinity, most of which I read....Plutarch's Lives there was in which I read abundantly, and I still think that time spent to great advantage. There was also a book of Defoe's, called an Essay on Projects, and another of Dr. Mather's, called Essays to Do Good, which perhaps gave me a turn of thinking that had an influence on some of the principal future events in my life.

You might well ask how young Franklin was reading Bunyan, Burton, Mather, Defoe, Plutarch, and works of "polemic divinity" before he would have been in junior high school. If you were schooled in the brain development lore of academic pedagogy it might seem quite a tour de force.

How do you suppose this son of a workingman with thirteen kids became such an effective public speaker that for more than half a century his voice was heard nationally and internationally on the great questions? He employed a method absolutely free: He argued with his friend Collins:

Very fond we were of argument, and very desirous of confuting one another, which disputatious turn is based upon contradiction. [Here Franklin warns against using dialectics on friendships or at social gatherings] I had caught it [the dialectical habit] by reading my father's books of dispute about religion.... A question was started between Collins and me, of the propriety of educating the female sex in learning, and their abilities to study. He was of the opinion that it was improper.... I took the contrary side.

Shortly after he began arguing, he also began reading the most elegant periodical of the day, Addison and Steele's Spectator:

I thought the writing excellent and wished, if possible, to imitate it. With that in view I took some of the papers, and making short hints of the sentiment in each sentence, laid them by a few days, and then, without looking at the book, try'd to complete the papers again, by expressing each hinted sentiment at length, and as fully as it had been expressed before, in any suitable words that should come to hand. Then I compared my Spectator with the original, discovered some of my faults, and corrected them.

This method was hammered out while working a sixty-hour week. In learning eloquence there's only Ben, his determination, and the Spectator, no teacher. For instance, while executing rewrites, Franklin came to realize his vocabulary was too barren:

I found I wanted a stock of words...which I thought I should have acquired before that time if I had gone on making verses; since the continual occasion for words of the same import, but of different length, to suit the measure, or of different sound for the rhyme, would have laid me under a constant necessity of searching for variety, and also have tended to fix that variety in my mind and make me master of it.

As a good empiricist he tried a home cure for this deficiency:

I took some tales and turned them into verse; and after a time when I had pretty well forgotten the prose, turned them back again. I also sometimes jumbled my collection of hints [his outline] into confusions and after some weeks endeavored to reduce them into the best order, before I began to form the full sentences and complete the paper. This was to teach me method in the arrangement of thoughts. By comparing my work afterwards with the original I discovered many faults and amended them; but I sometimes thought... I had been lucky enough to improve the method or the language.

By the time he was sixteen Franklin was ready to take up his deficiencies in earnest with full confidence he could by his own efforts overcome them. Here's how he handled that problem with arithmetic:

Being on some occasion made ashamed of my ignorance in figures, which I had twice failed in learning when at school, I took Crocker's book of Arithmetick, and went through the whole by myself with great ease. I also read Seller's and Shermy's book of Navigation and became acquainted with the geometry they contain.

This school dropout tells us he was also reading John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding, as well as studying the arts of rhetoric and logic, particularly the Socratic method of disputation, which so charmed and intrigued him that he abruptly dropped his former argumentative style, putting on the mask of "the humble inquirer and doubter":

I found this method safest for myself and very embarrassing to those against whom I used it; therefore I took a delight in it, practis'd it continually, and grew very artful and expert in drawing people, even of superior knowledge, into concessions, the consequences of which they did not foresee, entangling them in difficulties out of which they could not extricate themselves, and so obtaining victories that neither myself nor my cause always deserved.

Might there be an instructive parallel between teaching a kid to drive as my uncle taught me to do at age eleven, and the incredible opportunities working-class kids like Franklin were given to develop as quickly and as far as their hearts and minds allowed? We drive, regardless of our intelligence or characters, because the economy demands it; in colonial America through the early republic, a pressing need existed to get the most from everybody. Because of that need, unusual men and unusual women appeared in great numbers to briefly give the lie to traditional social order. In that historical instant, thousands of years of orthodox suppositions were shattered. In the words of Eric Hoffer, "Only here in America were common folk given a chance to show what they could do on their own without a master to push and order them about." Franklin and Edison, multiplied many times, were the result." (From John Taylor Gatto's The Underground History of American Education: A School Teacher's Intimate Investigation Into The Problem Of Modern Schooling).

"After the true Scriptures, this is most important book on education you will ever read."
(Nazarene Remnant)

CONCLUSIONS AND FINALE ...

There are many things that a young person needs to know to ensure that they have been given a proper grounding in life so that they might partake of eternal life. In this book I have outlined the key points, and I hope you use it as a springboard to educate your own children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, in the truth about our lives here on Earth. We absolutely must return to the original true religion, which is ancient Christianity, set up by the Eternal God, and discard every trace of Catholicism (including both the Roman and English versions) and Protestantism (in all its forms, including all Churches of God, Seventh Day, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses, Quakers, Baptists, Uniting Church, Pentacostal,  etc etc), from our families, for that is the way of satan. And that goes for all the other false religions that prevail on this planet: Islam, and Buddhism and all other Eastern religions!

If you think you are a loving parent, then it is absolutely vital that you teach you children that the Eternal Law demands that we should teach this fundamental of all principles: fornication has the same penalty as that of adultery! The Eternal Law makes no difference between adultery and fornication, and a few moments of clear reflection should make this clear. Our hypocritical “shepherds” have been avoiding teaching this truth about fornication for so long now that it has extended right throughout the mindset of our young people, so that the evil called “free love” is now the norm on planet earth amongst so many people. And they blindly hail it as “progressive” thinking! Few adults seems to know any better. Our young people need to know that sexual relations between male and female demand the making of the deepest commitment one human being can make to each other, that of the inviolate marriage bond. We need to understand that the ancients (and they’re nor so ancient, actually) clearly understood Family Law and went to great lengths to see that their children were protected from falling into the hands of "dogs" of either sex! That this why they diligently used chaperones and the device of betrothal. Only foolish parents will allow their children to be alone with members of the opposite sex in compromising situations. The art and science of the chaperone was the best insurance against the possibility of illicit sexual relations happening.

“Foolish fathers and mothers! Cruel families—who did not hand down true truth, but who handed down the opposite and led their children away from God [and we might add, to their eternal destruction]. Look in your imaginations at the long lines waiting for their turn to run, grabbing the wrong flag, speeding in the wrong direction - in country after country and generation after generation. Listen to what God says to the children of Israel:

‘Only take heed to yourself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons ... when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.’ (Deuteronomy 4: 9, 10.) ...

‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.’ (Deuteronomy 6: 4, 7.)

How clear it is. The truth of the existence and the character of God is to be made known to the children and the children's children. We are responsible for our children and for our grandchildren, for our nieces and nephews and our grandnieces and grandnephews. That they may know what? The wonder of who God is, what God has done, what God has said, and what He has meant to those doing the telling. There must be some reality to relate, some true understanding of God to pass down. ... This One who is the Creator is to be marvelled at, and as we walk and talk with our children, the wonders of His Creation should be pointed out.” (Schaeffer, Edith, What Is a Family, Highlands Books, 1975, pp. 122-124.)

If you don't teach and protect your children from "dogs" then you have failed your children in the most profound of ways. Be prepared then to watch them being destroyed by God Himself, by being cast in the Lake of Fire, at the final judgment:

“There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you [yourselves and your children] thrust out.” (Luke 13: 28)

If and when this happens you will have failed your children in the areas where they needed you most!

The Most Stern Warning in all Scripture ...

We are entering an age that Satanists call the Age of Fire, when they will use every murderous, demonic, vicious, and most cunning tactics and lies to usher in their Nazi Fourth Reich (aka the New World Order). They have made the following point very clear:

“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.” (David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations Organization) ...

The Time for Talk is Over

“The trip is over folks, we are out of road. I wish I could tell you where you are going. If you don't know or don't have a map, it wouldn't do me much good to try to tell you anyway. One thing is for certain; from here you will walkthe rest of the way. For many it will be to destination unknown. Most are on the way to the City of Despair, in the State of Confusion, located within the Nation of Disgrace. For others, the destination will not be pleasant nor a matter of choice. You get the picture. Those who, ‘take all of your belongings and climb into the truck,’ will weep in utter misery for the personal negligence that they brought upon themselves and their families. You will have paid the ultimate price.

 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.” (Proverbs 22: 3, KJV)

 

So,...will you take the final moments God is giving you to step away from your ‘stupid zone’ and do what you should have so long ago? Will you finally make some plans? Will you really sell off your unnecessary toys and purchase the absolutely necessary survival tools that will give you just a chance to make it through? Will you search out the ultimate truth of our predicament and the One who can give you peace, serenity and eternal life? Can you admit that putting a dictator in office was one of your very worst mistakes, and you will try to make amends by resisting him and his communist platform? Will you do all you can to convert your family and friends who also voted for him and others supporting him to work against him in every way possible? That may sting and burn to be told that, but it is far better than the amputation of your limbs that is coming if he continues to dismantle this nation and its last freedoms.

“Procrastination in implementing your family's self preservation plans will be terminal.” [1]

 

Editorials like these are expected to consume about 1500 words. This is half that. Like I said, the time for talk is over.”

Not all males are men. I hope you understand that. Especially convincing is the evidence I have garnered recently that Christian males in particular are the least manly.

Get A FREE Copy>>> Secrecy or Freedom eBook

This is Alan Jones' most recent book, published in April, 2001. While countless books have been written revealing yet one more outrage which the New World Order folks have perpetrated on us, Jones has resolved on an entirely different purpose: to define a way of mounting a counterattack on those elites, and not just delay their next victory, but destroy their viability, and take back our country and the world for middle class citizens everywhere. In the same way that an army or a football team will surely lose in the long run if it has only a defense and no offense, we too shall lose our world to the elites if we fail to marshal our resources, mount a viable offense against them, and reduce their present dominance of public affairs to a nullity. To that end, this book goes right back into history to discover their origin, their modus operandi, their strengths, and most importantly, their weaknesses. The exercise has been successful, and reveals a crucial weakness which may readily be exploited. We will, in this web page, outline our search, our major findings, and finally a plan of action to save our country for the benefit, we hope, of a great number of future generations of free citizens. Our historical look will go back 2000 years and beyond. Our sources are not generally well known, are not Nobel prize- winning historians, but nevertheless are historical truth seekers whose researches are uniquely valuable. Each of the chapters of Secrecy or Freedom? carries the title of the historical work which is reviewed in that chapter. In this web page, we will give you an inkling of what is covered in each of these chapters, with the hope that these few words will lead you to order our book, carefully absorb its contents, and then join in our proposed action plan to take back our country.

John Taylor Gatto's "The Underground History of American Education"

"If we ever needed a battering ram to pull down the evil structure of compulsory public schooling, this book should be able to do the job. The book calls for a revolution. But not a violent one. It can be won easily and peaceably by merely taking the kids out of the public schools. It's still legal to do so. That would change America radically. But the pessimists will say that most parents are too brain-dead to care what goes on in the public schools. Those parents who do care have already gotten their kids out and are homeschooling them. But we know that every day more and more parents are beginning to see the light. That's encouraging." (Samuel L. Blumenfeld)

Democracy Is An Illusion 

"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one perhaps of the Right, and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy... But either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor,approximately the same policies". (Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966, p. 1247-48)

What You Should Know About Swine Flu 

What You Should Know About Swine Flu eBook cover image

"These are challenging times and we need to stay calm and think things through - not just panic and react. Fear, panic and emotional reaction got us into this mess and it is certainly not going to get us out of it.

We also need to realise - here, now - that  we have long crossed the line into a fully-fledged  fascist dictatorship. It has hidden itself to most people this far, but it is about to lift the veil.

It is no longer an option to do nothing or passively acquiesce to authority out of fear or apathy. Or, at least, it's not if we care about our freedoms and, most importantly, those of our children and grandchildren who will have to live almost their entire lives under a global jackboot of sheer, undiluted evil.

The word 'evil' is much overused and I don't say it lightly; but we are dealing with evil in the sense that the word is the reverse of 'live'. Those behind the conspiracy to cull the human population and turn the rest into little more than computer terminals are anti-life. They have no respect for it and no empathy with those who suffer the consequences of their actions, no matter how appalling.

I have been warning of what was coming for nearly 20 years and it is not 'coming' any more - it's here. No more excuses from anyone, please. We have to deal with it. We have to draw a line in the sand and say no more.

Never was this more important than with  the conspiracy to force swine flu vaccination upon the global population. The swine flu virus was created in a laboratory to generate  mass panic with the specific intention of forcing everyone to have the vaccine. Problem-Reaction-Solution. This 'natural' swine flu virus apparently contains genes from humans, birds and pigs from several continents.

If you concoct and release a virus and then implement a clearly long-planned mass vaccin-ation programme, there can be only one sensible conclusion: swine flu is not the biggest danger here - it's the vaccine." (David Icke)

This Has to be the Definitive Report on the Vaccination Hoax.  

“The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used.” – Dr. James A. Shannon. National Institutes of Health.

Are you scared when you’re told you have to vaccinate your child with 49 doses in 14 vaccines before age 6? Or are you scared at the idea of not vaccinating and so “exposing” your child to serious illnesses?

Are you scared about the school threatening you that if you don’t vaccinate you can’t enrol your child?

FEAR. That’s what all these pro-vaccine campaigns are based on. As a parent, what’s the biggest scare of all? When your child gets sick with a serious disease and you feel responsible for that. As you see, vaccine supporters couldn’t go wrong with this and developed a dogma that’s been bought over and over again over the years by people. The magic insurance policy to solve it all.

So, even if your child gets sick, at least you know you did everything you could for his/her health and vaccinated, right? But what if the very vaccination is able to cause the illness in the first place??

Could The Vaccine Hoax Be Over?

An extraordinary paper published by a courageous doctor and investigative medical researcher has dug the dirt on 30 years of secret official transcripts of meetings of UK government vaccine committees and the supposedly independent medical “experts” sitting on them with their drug industry connections.

The 45 page paper with detailed evidence can be downloaded here.

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing 

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves"  (Matthew 7: 15)

Vicious wolf

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11: 13-15)


We are Facing Orwellian, Totalitarian Slavery 
 

That's what they want to impose on us. That's the reason behind all the national identity cards, DNA data bases, surveillance cameras, GPS tracking devices in cars and trucks and cell phones, digital micro-chipping of everything from A to Z, Internet surveillance and censorship, telephone taps, body and luggage searches and scans at airports, finger printing of air travelers and bank customers, interrogations at airline boarding gates, intrusive banking regulations, and much more. The Powers That Be are branding and penning up the global "human herd" in just the same way that cattle ranchers tag their cattle herds with ear tags and fence them into feed lots to fatten them up for slaughter. The Powers That Be regard us as their livestock, as their personal property, and they are in the process of branding us, tagging us, and penning us up, so that they can manage us like cattle or swine. Our plight is that stark and simple.

 

So do you want to be a slave or free? That's the question. Because if you want to be free you're absolutely going to have to do something about it. Millions of people are going to have to go outside of their comfort zone, that's the hard truth of the matter, because the status quo is simply not remotely acceptable for people who want to live as free human beings on this planet.

 

Don't imagine that you can just vote in the next criminally rigged election and a new set of corrupt politicians will somehow magically make things better. THEY WON'T. The galling thing is that the Powers That Be have set up a global system to which they insist we assiduously adhere and obey every corrupt dictate they issue, while they themselves flagrantly flout the Constitution with impunity, and never cease massively enriching themselves and their plutocrat cronies, and rolling in corrupt luxury, at our ruinous expense.

 

This pathetic charade will continue only as long as the people permit it, because when the people declare a de facto Jubilee Year, the jig will be up. As a matter of fact, that process is already underway. It is a simple truth that unemployed people cannot service a loan, cannot pay a tax bill, and cannot pay a fine that is imposed on them for failure to do any of the foregoing. So as the unemployed rolls continue to swell, more and more people will simply refuse or fail to make credit card payments, to pay back home, automobile and student loans, and will default on furniture, appliance and pay day loans, and much more. This is already happening and the trend will increase.”

The Plain Truth About Glorious Carbon Dioxide 

"Nature is a self-regulating mechanism that dwarfs any mindless effort to 'control' the amount of CO2 produced by coal-fired utilities, steel manufacturers, autos and trucks, and gasoline fueled lawn mowers. Okay, children, let's all sit up straight at our desks. We are going to begin 2009 with a lesson about carbon dioxide (CO2)." (Alan Caruba)


The Oil, Gas and Energy Crises are Massive Hoaxes  

Lindsey Williams' book cover,

Lindsey Williams, a Baptist minister and author of the 1980's book The Energy Non-Crisis (on line) has been reporting inside information about oil price-manipulation for many years now, and generally the information has been accurate.

According to Pastor Williams, the Globalists are fomenting rebellion as an excuse to raise the oil prices to $150-200 a barrel.

Pastor Williams revealed in his book that the US has huge untapped oil reserves that the elites have known about for decades. After manipulating the oil prices  to around $200 a barrel, we will finally see these US oil reserves opened for production.

Christ's Flag is The Union Jack 

The Union Jack.

The Union Jack

The Australian and New Zealand flags go back much further than the 200 years you probably are aware of. Notice the most prominent symbol on all these flags is the eight-pointed cross. This 8 pointed cross consists of two different four pointed crosses (the x and the + crosses) that are superimposed!

The Australian National Flag.

Australian Flag

The New Zealand National Flag.

New Zealand Flag

Their heraldic  symbolism goes back 3,500 years; to the time of Moses and Joshua, the great Israelite (not Jewish) Military-Commanders.

The vertical cross on the flag is for the Great Cross that is formed at critical times in the Galaxy, and this is called the Galactic Cross. T  he diagonal cross stands for the Earth Cross. The Earth cross is the cross of the Zodiac, while the Galactic Cross is the intersection of the Galactic Equator with the Ecliptic and its perpendicular axis.

Four times during the Great Year (which is 25,920 years long)--i.e. every 6,480 years--the Earth Cross aligns with the Galactic Cross to form a single four-pointed cross in the sky. This is what will occur on December 21, 2012, which will herald the end of the "Dark Cycle."

For more information download Part I and Part II of Jan Wicherink's "Great Celestial Conjunction Crosses" reports.  These reports are also in our free book The Prophet Daniel and December 21, 2012.

The red on the flag stands for human blood, and the white stands for the Birthright Holy Spirit, which does the work of redemption (i.e. the born-again process), thus changing a sinful human being into a true blue-blood (i.e. the Elect). Blue is the colour of Sirius, and the Creator God of ancient Khemit (Egypt) known as Ptah (who we call God the Father). In this process it is important to know that there are 216 bones in the human body, and the blood is actually made in the bones!

Furthermore, the science of Khemitology reveals that Ptah was referred to as “He Who Comes from the Blue,” and was always depicted with a blue head covering or with blue skin.

What race was Ptah depicted as?

In the depictions of Ptah from ancient Khemit (the proper name for ancient Egypt) “Ptah is usually depicted with Asian eyes, a Caucasian nose, and Negroid lips. He apparently represents many races as the ‘Father’ or progenitor race from Sirius. Ptah became known as Dyas or Zeus to the Greeks, and later ‘pater’ (father) to the Romans: Ptah, Pater, ‘Father Race.’” (Source: Stephen S Mehler’s The Land of Osiris: An Introduction to Khemitology, Adventures Unlimited Press, 2001, p. 180)

It is also noteworthy that Egyptologist’s word for the bright star Sirius is Sopdet (Sp.dt). According to the science of Khemitology, the Egyptologists have it wrong (and I would heartily agree), and the word should be S.pth, which is Sa-Ptah, “The Birthplace of Ptah.” Thus we see the clear connection between God the Father and the eighth planet of the Solar System, the bright star Sirius.

The Heraldic Symbolism of the Unicorn on the British Coat-of-Arms

British coat of arms.

The British Coat-of-Arms is the Coat-of-Arms of the 12 tribed Kingdom of Israel and Christ their Rightful KING.

The TRUE Israel People have, on their "Coat-of-Arms", a Lion and a Unicorn which is shown as a white horse "rampant" with one horn. The amber Lion "rampant" on the left-side is the emblem of the two-tribed "House of Judah" and the Unicorn or white Wild-Ox "rampant" on the right-side is the emblem of the ten-tribed "House of Israel", collectively making the 12-tribed "Kingdom of Israel".

The word British is Hebrew. It means "the People of the Covenant" or in other words "the People Israel", whose written Constitution; under that Covenant, that they have rejected to their own loss; is written in the Bible (Israel's Book) that they still swear on to tell the Truth, but whose Constitution, under which there are no poor people, is then foolishly rejected by almost everyone, in favour of inferior and unjust, man-made laws and economics which cause poverty and therefore also crime brought about by deprivation and desperation.

The Antichrist's coat-of-arms.

The lion facing the East stands for the Zodiacal Sign of Leo, the 12th Sign in the Birthright Zodiac. The unicorn stands for the Constellation of Pegasus in the Zodiacal Sign of Aquarius. Both animals are holding the Shield of Salvation, or the Shield of Damnation, depending upon your attitude to God and your way of life, whether you are in rebellion or submission.

Consequently the Lion stands for the White Crown of Upper Egypt, while the Unicorn stands for the Red Crown of Lower Egypt. While the symbols may have changed, the meaning has remained the same over the Millenia.


The Bible is Not a Jewish Book 

The statement is commonly made, even by those who should know better, that “we Christians owe a debt to the Jews, for we got our Bible, and our religion, from them.” While many people have been deceived into believing this, it is completely false.  Part of the mistake comes from the complete confusion in the minds of nearly all people as to just what they mean by “Jew.” Are they referring to people of a certain race? Or people of a certain religion? For the two are not the same.  There are in Africa today some pure-blooded Negroes who are Jews by religion and there are in China today some pure-blooded Mongolians who are Jews by religion. Likewise, there are some people today who are racially of the stock we know as Jews, but who have been converted to other religions.

How Many Men are Necessary to Change a Crime into a Virtue? 

“In another pamphlet, entitled How Many Men are Necessary to Change a Crime into a Virtue? Adin Ballou [another champion of non-resistance] says: ‘One man may not kill. lf he kills a fellow-creature, he is a murderer. lf two, ten, a hundred men do so, they, too, are murderers. But a government or a nation may kill as many men as it chooses, and that will not be murder, but a great and noble action. Only gather the people together on a large scale, and a battle of ten thousand men becomes an innocent action. But precisely how many people must there be to make it so?- that is the question. One man cannot plunder and pillage, but a whole nation can. But precisely how many are needed to make it permissible? Why is it that one man, ten, a hundred, may not break the law of God, but a great number may?” (Quoted in Leo Tolstoy’s book, The Kingdom of Heaven Is Within You, p. 6.)


"Don't think for a moment you are going to vote the Illuminati out of office. They control the major and minor political parties. They control the process of government, they control the process of information flow, they control the process of creating money and finally they control Christendom. (However, God controls the hearts of His people.)" (From The Top 13 illuminati Bloodlines, by Fritz Springmeier)
Woe Unto You Lawyers! (and Policemen) 

"Of all the specialized skills abroad in the world today, the average man knows least about the one that affects him most – about the thing that lawyers call The Law. A man who will discourse at length about the latest cure for streptococci infection or describe in detail his allergic symptoms cannot begin to tell you what happened to him legally – and plenty did – when he got married. A man who would not dream of buying a car without an intricate and illustrated description of its mechanical workings will sign a lease without knowing what more than four of its forty-four clauses mean or why they are there. A man who will not hesitate to criticize or disagree with a trained economist or an expert in any one of a dozen fields of learning will follow, unquestioning and meek, whatever advice his lawyer gives him. Normal human skepticism and curiosity seem to vanish entirely whenever the layman encounters The Law.

There are several reasons for this mass submission, One is the average man’s fear of the unknown – and of policemen."



“Telling the story of the rise of Communism [Nazarene Remnant comment: This term Communism needs to be replaced by the word Satanism, because we now know that this term was chosen to hide the underlying devotion to Satan that drives these people. End NR comment] means revealing the histories of the worst of the criminals involved at the time. But this is necessary, for without knowledge of the secrets of evil, we cannot properly develop the good, either. As the Swedish philosopher Henry T. Laurency wrote: ‘Only he who knows evil knows good.’ 
Then we shall appreciate goodness above everything else on earth.Then we may really be able to welcome the truth, even if it is frightening and dismiss lies, even if they are pleasant.” (Juri Lina, Under the Sign of the Scorpion, p. 63)
