“So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his platform and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, The voice of a god and not of a man! And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died.” Acts 12:21-23
The other day I had gotten done finishing an article and publishing it online, as well as recording the radio shows for the upcoming days. I was pondering the current events in this world and thinking about how much different those in the patriotic circles, as well as the alternative media behave.
Prior to Donald Trump running for President of the United States, things hadn’t changed much. After 9/11 a prepper movement began heavily in this country and there were people who were joining militias or planning for mutual aid in communities. There was a distrust of the Federal government and the word on the street was that martial law would eventually be declared.
As 2012 was closing in, the prepper movement, as well as the warnings hit their peak. My family had a year supply (for one person) of freeze dried food that we had purchased in 2011. In late 2013 we decided to sell it and had an older veteran stop over at our place in Whitefish, Montana.
This man described how he was part of a network where other patriots would do things, such as turn a home into a hospital, have food storages here and there, as well as communications, etc. He wasn’t alone, he wasn’t crazy, he simply believed, as many did, that eventually the Federal government was going to turn on the people and preparing for such things just made sense.
Now we have a country of conspiracy theorists, of which I would agree with much of that, though I would call it conspiracy facts in many cases. Yet the mass of people have bought into the fake news, fake media, etc. They no longer believe the ‘lies’ that are told on the media, rather they are following the man, President Trump. For many, what President Trump says is the truth, irregardless of what others say.
This is not to say that President Trump is lying about the media, it has been controlled by a handful of people, a sort of oligopoly that is fed by the United States ministry of ‘truth’. The media shouldn’t have been trusted twenty years ago, let alone today. The problem lies with those who had always been saying that the media was controlled.
For the most part, all of the main alternative media talking heads are no longer discussing the Federal government’s plans for a martial law scenario. In fact, everything is focused on the fact that there is now a man in the Whitehouse who is cleaning it up. ‘One of us’ is now in control of the country and he is fighting the deep state, new world order, whatever you might call it, to whatever level you believe that the conspiracy goes.
Where there were people like Ron Paul (who is not an avid Trump supporter) warning us about how a wall built on the southern border could be used to keep us in, there are now only those telling us that the wall built is for the intentions stated and they mention no possibility of anything else.
They are quick to point out the health hazards of a 5G network being rapidly deployed across the United States, but they refuse to acknowledge or mention the military implications for potential real-time warfare against the American public. Imagine martial law plugged into the 5G network! Try to get away from that technology of real time updates!
Where war with Afghanistan and Middle Eastern countries was always part of the conspiracy of the petro-dollar, the dreams of Dick Cheney and the military industrial complex, now it is either necessary or with President Trump openly admitting it is about the oil, this is alright. Well, then they should have kept their mouth shut all along, if the world reserve currency, the US dollar is dependent on control of the oil and the wars, as well as operations that go along with it, then why was it ever a problem? Do really the ends justify the means? I guess in our so-called ‘christian’ nation it is alright to behave like that.
“Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin with cart ropes; who say, Let Him hurry and hasten His work, so that we may see it; and let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, so that we may know it! Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and understanding in their own sight! Woe to those mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mix strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice from the righteous!” Isaiah 5:18-23
Even President Obama eventually put a stop to militarizing the police stations across the United States, due to a huge outcry over civil rights and potential police abuse. Yet with the stroke of a pen and with section 1033 fully operational, the hardening of the police forces across the United States with sophisticated weaponry and military vehicles at a record level, President Trump revamped and accelerated the program. This same program was always talked about by the alternative media of proof that the Federal government was getting ready for martial law. Now? Not even a peep!
Did FEMA cancel all of the contracts to have instant 72 hour operational tent cities? Did our government finally decide that it can not handle the American people in an operation against the ‘hold outs’? Or did the original conspiracy theorist decide that martial law was never a possibility? Well President Trump changed all of that!
Certainly when he passed an executive order (EO) that seems to allow for military tribunals, martial law, in a fallen society, that was not the real purpose, right? After all the same talking heads told of how that EO was really for the deep state. President Trump, as I have heard time and time again, and seen numerous articles about, is planning on using that to get rid of the deep state. According to these people, President Trump will have to temporarily suspend the Constitution, declare martial law and have military tribunals for the Pelosi’s, Obama’s, Clinton’s, etc., and there helpers.
Time and time again, things that were once believed, once warned about, are now turned upside down. The solution is always the same, irregardless if it is from the evangelicals or the alternative media or even just the republican party…trust in President Trump, he will take care of it.
Just as the alternative media ignores the SAME warning signs that are going on, the ones they used to scream about for people to wake up, so too the evangelicals overlook President Trump’s doctrines of prosperity, sex (thinking of the Playboy cover Trump was featured on), greed, materialism and pride. They simply say to trust in him, he is a man chosen by God. Really?
Even the republican party has been overcome by the ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ philosophy. Their constituents demand support for President Trump, therefore their own jobs are on the line. Well you say, where is your proof, how come you don’t join us?
I was thinking about these things and decided to do some deeper research, trying to figure out what was currently being said from the alternative media, as well as just the ‘average joe’ with their blogs, websites, etc. I also looked at what the mainstream media was saying.
I pondered these things and was also looking at how very popular pastors and religious leaders in this country were advocating for President Trump, speaking against the impeachment and calling him God’s chosen man. What I eventually ran across was something that I hadn’t heard, hadn’t seen.
I knew there was a bunch of prominent rabbis who state that President Trump is either the Messiah or else he is helping to usher in the Messiah. I understand that this messiah that the religious Jews of Israel are looking for, will ultimately be the Antichrist. What I didn’t original know, but my best friend managed to find out, is that the rabbis look to the Messiah, not as God incarnate, but rather as a political leader who will place Israel back into their supposed rightful place in time.
Israel does not understand “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), and neither does the church. Both do not know and in doing so they are fulfilling the prophecies about such a time that the Bible talks about. However, I continued to ponder these things and then, if it wasn’t bad enough that President Trump was compared to Jesus Christ and His crucifixion, matters got worse.
President Trump retweeted a video of a man talking about how Israel views him, that he was like the ‘second coming of God’ or the ‘king of Israel’. In another video, when talking about the tariffs with China, President Trump looks up to the sky, as if looking towards Heaven, and states that he ‘is the chosen one’. With the later President Trump claims it is sarcasm, yet with the first that President Trump retweeted, he simply added the word “wow!” to his retweet.
When Jesus was accused of the same thing:
“And as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in Heaven and glory in the highest! And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, Teacher, rebuke Your disciples. But He answered and said to them, I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:37-40
Jesus rightfully so, did not dispute with what men were saying about Him, but rather stated that if they kept silent the stones would immediately cry out. He is the Son of God (John 3:16, etc.), He is God (John 10:30). Yet President Trump simply retweeted it, sucking it all in, as Herod had done. If that didn’t please God back then, certainly it is not pleasing to our Creator now.
President Trump is the voice of a man, not of a god. He should stop his followers from comparing himself to Jesus Christ, Elijah, Moses or the King of Israel, of which Christ is the King (Zec. 9:9)! When you consider what was stated in the last article in retrospect to what is being written here, truly we live in a time of utter ignorance of the Bible, we are certainly in the last days.
Once again I do not know the future, I do not know whether President Trump will simply be President of the United States or something more, but what I do know is there has never been a President in history that has been compared to Jesus, Moses or Elijah, let alone called the King of Israel or suggesting that he is like the Second Coming. We live in very ignorant and apostate times.
