Lawlessness in the Law

It is interesting that while the US ignores many of the laws of God, that they continue to make up their own, in the process becoming less Godly and in fact more lawless (Matthew 24:12).

This is a timely book about the breakdown of the rule of law in the United States.

Individual freedom and the rule of law is gone in America. Oh, they haven’t come for you yet? You haven’t broken the law? Well, Harvey Silverglate proves in Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent that the Feds (U.S. prosecuting attorneys) target the innocent.

Silverglate believes that we are in danger of becoming a society in which prosecutors alone become judges, juries and executioners because the threat of high sentences make it too costly for even innocent people to resist the prosecutorial pressure.

Silverglate writes, “it is only a slight exaggeration to say that the average busy professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, takes care of personal and family obligations and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she likely committed several Federal crimes that day.” Why?

The answer lies in the huge volume of Federal criminal laws which are broad and impossibly vague. They have become dangerously disconnected from English common law tradition.

There is a crime for all of us. Currently there are 4,450 listed criminal offenses. These listed Federal offenses have exploded well beyond the statute books and into the morass of the Code of Federal Regulations, giving Federal prosecutors thousands of additional vague, complex and technical prohibitions removed from congressional authority or any authority but the Federal prosecutors themselves.

Educational Disinformation

There has been an assault on God and the His way since the first man and it will continue as long as Satan has his way and man gives into it.  There are few places that this can be better seen than our school system.  As long as mankind continues to look to places other than the Bible for true understanding, he will continue to be misled to his own demise.

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

It should be clear to all reasoning people with the ability for critical thinking that a pattern of cultural warfare has been unfolding against the Western world since at least the end of World War Two. The contrast between what was then and what is now is stark and frightening. It should serve as all the evidence we require to make the final determination about what has been happening.

The complete destruction of the traditional family unit has taken place through a process of indirect and direct attacks against the proven characteristics of Western civilization. It should be obvious that media and art have orchestrated a well-thought out strategy of cultural warfare against the masculine and feminine ideals and support columns of culture.

Our educational buildings and curriculums have been used to erode and shatter all the ideals of natural and instinctual existence which have developed within the Western mind. The more we remember and rediscover, the more we realize that almost everything which is taught in our schools is either a corrupt twisted version of truth, or is an outright lie and fabrication.

If our curriculums were based on truth they would not need the constant changing and tweaking which takes takes place.

It’s interesting that more and more students are coming out of the university system and understanding that they in fact understand nothing.

Test Predicts Which Children Will Grow Up to be Drain on Society

Once again we see that the cause for ills in the world and the downward slide of society can be avoided by simple yet profound truths in the ancient texts of the Word of God (Proverbs 22:6).

A simple test at the age of three can determine whether children will grow up to be a burden on society, needing excessive welfare, ending up in jail or becoming obese.

Scientists at King’s College London followed more than 1,000 children from before school until they were 38, to find out if it was possible to predict who would go on to lead troubled lives.

All were given a 45 minute test aged three to gauge … their levels of tolerance, restlessness, impulsivity and social disadvantage.

After 35 years, the researchers found one fifth of the group was responsible for 81 per cent of the criminal convictions; three quarters of drug prescriptions; two thirds of welfare benefit payments and more than half of nights in hospital.

But crucially, they discovered that the outcome could have been predicted decades earlier, simply by looking at which children attained the lowest test scores aged three.

You get the best bang for the buck with early intervention,” she said. “These are all traits that can be controlled and improved upon, so identifying them in young children is a gift, and all of society would benefit.

Prof Moffitt added: “This study really gives a pretty clear picture of what happens if you don’t intervene.”

U.S. Ranked the 114th Most Peaceful Nation

This is what happens when a nation departs from God: “…And there is no justice in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths; Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.” (Isaiah 59:8)

Land of the free, home of the brave – but America may not be the most peaceful spot on earth according to the 11th annual “Global Peace Index,” which bases judgement calls on a complex gauge of social, economic and political factors, including rates of homicide and terrorism activities.

The U.S. is now at No. 114, falling 11 places in the last year, the analysis says. Armenia and Rwanda are just in front of America on the list, El Salvador and China follow. [OUCH!]

The United Kingdom is at No. 41….

“The U.S. deterioration is primarily driven by the growing intensity of internal conflict within the country, which was partly seen in the divisive 2016 Presidential election, as well as increases in the perceptions of criminality across American society,” the analysis said, also citing the impact of “rising homicide rates in several major American cities”  and several terrorist attacks on American soil.

Is The US Prepared For A Nuclear EMP?

Most do not see how the US can come to an end much less how the mightiest nation the world has ever known be taken into slavery as the Bible prophesies.  Here is a feasible scenario:

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack would be perfect for implementing Russia’s strategy of “de-escalation,” where a conflict with the U.S. and its allies would be won by limited nuclear use. It’s their version of “shock and awe” to cow the U.S. into submission. The same kind of attack is viewed as an acceptable option by China and North Korea as well.

An EMP attack would be the most militarily effective use of one or a few nuclear weapons, while also being the most acceptable nuclear option in world opinion, the option most likely to be construed in the U.S. and internationally as “restrained” and a “warning shot.”

Because EMP destroys electronics instead of blasting cities, even some analysts in Germany and Japan, among the most anti-nuclear nations, regard EMP attacks as an acceptable use of nuclear weapons. High-altitude EMP attack entails detonating a nuclear weapon at 30-400 kilometers altitude — above the atmosphere, in outer space, so high that no nuclear effects, not even the sound of the explosion, would be experienced on the ground, except EMP.

An EMP attack will kill far more people than nuclear blasting a city through indirect effects – by blacking out electric grids and destroying life-sustaining critical infrastructures like communications, transportation, food and water – in the long run. But the millions of fatalities likely to eventually result from EMP will take months to develop, as slow as starvation.

Thus, a nation hit with an EMP attack will have powerful incentives to cease hostilities, focus on repairing their critical infrastructures while there is still time and opportunity to recover, and avert national extinction.

The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Any time that we, as a nation, reject God and put our trust in man this below will happen and the result will be less than desirable – whether it’s Trump or Obama (1 Samuel 10:19). For more information learn why we should NOT vote for either one.

Claiming that he is spending his time “empowering an effective network of global activists,” former President Barack Obama told an audience in Milan, Italy today that “you get the politicians you deserve.”

The End of Western Civilization

When a society moves away from God and relies on its own power and abilities, it is the beginning of the end. The US, for this reason, is inevitably headed toward a prophetic conclusion.

It’s been said, correctly, that a civilization always collapses from within. World War 1, in 1914, signaled the start of the long collapse of Western Civilization. Of course, termites were already eating away at the foundations, with the writings of people like Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Karl Marx. It’s been on an accelerating downward path ever since, even though technology and science have been improving at a quantum pace. They are, however, like delayed action flywheels, operating on stored energy and accumulated capital.

Rebel Catholic Group Defies Church, Ordains Woman Priest

While this may be considered acceptable behavior in the US, it is definitely not at the Vatican.  In the end, the False Prophet will have no qualms about the Beast Power subduing the US because it will see the Catholicism here as heretical and off-track.

An international group defiantly opposed to the Roman Catholic Church’s ban on women priests Sunday ordained its first woman Catholic priest in the 46 counties that make up the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte.

According to a news release about the Sunday ordination from the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests…. In the United States, it said, women priests serve in 65 “inclusive churches.” That includes women priests affiliated with the association and with a second allied group – Roman Catholic Women Priests – that has the same mission.

Most American Catholics say they’d like their church to ordain women. A Pew Research Poll in 2015 found that about six in 10 American Catholics said they favored allowing women to be Catholic priests.

But the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy has stood by its longtime prohibition against women becoming priests.

Not only that. In 2007, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, with the blessing of then-Pope Benedict XVI, decreed automatic excommunication against anyone “who attempts to confer a sacred order on a woman, and the woman who attempts to receive a sacred order.”

Well-known Pastor Re: North Korea, ‘I pray America is not destroyed’

One of the keys to prophecy is understanding who the ancient nations became by carefully following the migrations and name changes of peoples throughout history.  A summary of the modern identities that aid in the understanding of prophecy can be found in this table of nations.

PS  America is mentioned prominently in prophecy!

California megachurch Pastor Greg Laurie is urging Christians to “pray America is not destroyed” as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea burgeon.

“As you know, the conflict with this rogue nation has escalated dramatically in recent days and even hours,”….

“How does this fit into the prophetic puzzle? Well, in the last days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea,”  ….

“Here is what concerns me: We do not find the reigning superpower on the face of the earth anywhere in the last days scenario,” Laurie said. “Other nations emerge. So where is America? I pray we are not out of the picture because we have been in some kind of nuclear conflict.”

Why A Second American Civil War May Be Inevitable

We are a nation divided against itself: black vs white, homosexual vs straight, conservative vs liberal, Christian vs atheist, North vs South, etc.  The more that we move away from the principles by which this country was blessed, the quicker our demise will come about (Matthew 12:25). Of course the solution that escapes the author of this article is that we need to turn to the one true God.

Honestly, I think we’re in the early stages of a second civil war. I can’t say what it’ll look like precisely, but I can tell you that our nation is on this path, and it’s not clear how we can get off of it. In fact, I fear that it may be inevitable, and there’s a very simple reason why.

It’s because Americans have been self-sorting themselves along geographic and political lines for a long time. A book titled “The Big Sort” made light of this trend back in 2008.

We’re self-sorting at every level. Because of this, Americans are only going to grow more extreme in their beliefs, and see people on the other side of the political spectrum as more alien.

You can see how this is creating the perfect breeding ground for a real, physical war. The polarization makes it easier to dehumanize the other side….It spawns two sides with beliefs that are so divergent, that they cannot coexist.

We’re becoming two distinct nations with two competing visions for what the country should be. Two visions that are diametrically opposed.

Once the last shreds of common ground and understanding dissipate, a moment that is rapidly approaching, another civil war will be impossible to avoid. I wish I knew what the solution is, but I don’t.
