While I feel it is important to try to stay informed I also believe that "politics are only the anecdotes of history." Now, more than ever, we need to stay focused on the big picture. Of late, this blog has gotten stale and laced with too much anger and for that I apologize. I do not apologize for being angry, we all should be, but I apologize for venting in public. I never intended this to become a political rant sheet. I resolve to make amends by re-focusing on causes and conditions.
While I write some new material, I want to re-visit a couple of earlier posts, this one was posted, Dec. 31, 2009
We Are Not Alone #10
Venal and evil people are seizing control of the world. Every year they are closer to attaining their goal of having dominion over all the people of the planet. This is not a new or recent goal, they have been focused and committed to their evil plans for centuries. Now, for the first time, in the twenty-first century their goals seem to be attainable on a global scale. In the past they have been able to enslave whole civilizations to serve their ruling elite. But always in the past, their plans were thwarted by opposing forces or by natural calamity.
From a previous chapter I have suggested that one of the reasons that our visitors have not made contact with us is that Earth has been quarantined and is isolated from the rest of universe.
Quarantined: Earth has been quarantined because it is infected with a social disease. Earth is contaminated with the deadly virus of self-aggrandizement and greed at the expense of most of the positive qualities necessary to develop a viable and lasting civilization. The deadly disease has spread and is enslaving the entire planet. This dreaded affliction of power and control appears to be highly contagious. (From #8)
There was a war in Heaven. "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angles fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angles." Revelation 12:7
Note: To all you atheists, agnostics and liberals; before you get your panties in a wad, just calm yourself and try to get through this with as much of an open mind as you can muster. I am not trying to tell you how to believe or what to think. I am only posing ideas and suggesting possibilities, so stop sputtering. The same advice goes to the religious zealots. Take a deep breath and remind yourself that neither you nor your faith are under attack by me. If I don't have the story just the way you read it, that it's ok. I encourage everyone to lighten up, relax and color outside the lines for a while.
Theologians and Biblical scholars generally agree that Lucifer was a Divine being of a very high order and that he was a brilliant leader with a distinguished career. But in his vainglorious mind he began to weave his plans, spinning a web of delusion that would ensnare a host of hapless trusting creatures. It is believed that one third of the celestial being under his command were hopelessly entangled by Lucifer's deceitful scheme.
Self assertion was the battle cry of the Lucifer Rebellion. Of the hosts to default was our own planetary administrator who cast his lot with Lucifer. The poison of rebellion was contagious and much of the staff of angels assigned to Earth followed their chief into darkness and default and our world was quarantined. We have been cut off and isolated from the rest of the universe.
When Jesus said "Get thee behind me, Satan", He ended the active reign of Lucifer. Jesus terminated the rebellion not as the Sovereign of his creation but as a tired, hungry and thirsty mortal, alone in the wilderness. The evil ones no longer had the power to enter the minds of mortals unless they were invited. A host of daemons were stranded when Earth was quarantined awaiting the final day of judgment. They still roam our world, pursuing Lucifer's nefarious plan of enslaving all the people or the world. They are active today and seem to be getting closer to their goal.
Fiction writers have used this story as a theme for their work. From J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, to George Lucas they have used this story as the basis for their entertaining works of fiction. It is a plot line with which we all are quite familiar. Scores of novelists have written about the duality of human nature and the constant struggle between our good side and our dark side.
Throughout the history of the world, all of the major civilizations have had one thing in common, and that is their goal of enslaving the people to serve their masters, the ruling elite. The ancient Greeks, for all of their wonderful contributions to civilization, believed that no Greek Citizen should ever work and all physical labor was the job of slaves. The once mighty Roman empire collapsed when they became weakened and their subjects revolted. The only thing left of the Egyptian culture are the spectacular monuments that were built by enslaved peoples. There are modern examples of thoroughly evil people's attempts to take over the world. Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin were two recent examples of power-mad statist despots, hell bent on world domination in the name of social change and reform. They both were responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of forced laborers, (slaves) and destroying anyone they imagined might be in their way.
The cult of evil that is intent on dominating all the peoples of the world is not dominated by single personalities. It is not controlled by any one group of individuals but rather an insidious mind set. They are not bound by any time table or confined to any one generation. The vile despots and dictators that we love to vilify and blame, come and go but the cancer of rebellion grows and spreads. Their goals are long term and far reaching. When evil appears to take a step back in defeat, it merely morphs into a new form, hiding behind some humanitarian cause. Behind the new mask of respectability it takes two steps forward. For an example, The League of Nations was considered to be a dismal failure so it was disbanded only to re-form into the bigger, stronger United Nations.
The war in Heaven was terminated about two thousand years ago in the wilderness in Palestine. But we are still contaminated with the deadly virus of self-aggrandizement and greed. Self-assertion is still the order of the day. Now, more than ever in the history of the planet, all the governments of the world appear to be cesspools of corruption and greed. The Globalist have their tentacles in almost every aspect of our lives and our Declaration of Independence and The Bill of Rights have been rendered all but impotent and no longer protects We the People.
If I am going to hate something, I must learn to hate intelligently. It is vital that I know as much as possible about that thing. The Chinese philosopher, Sun Tzu said, "If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril."
It is important for me to know what is going on around me even though I am powerless to do anything about it. I must learn to accept the things that I can't change, but I am not required to approve of them.
I need to remember that Politics are only the anecdotes of history. I know that the Creator's plan for this planet shall not fail. A day is coming soon when all the "evil doers" will be weighed in the balance and be found wanting. Until then, Keep the Faith, but keep your powder dry.
