Updated: Why Do We Believe The Lies?

"Truth exists. Lies are invented." Georges Braque

We live in a society in which lies, and the duplicity of wars are homogenized. Mass corporate media spoon feeds us this incessant scripted ignorance and deceit proffered as valid information. Propagandized sound bites, and depraved talking points are put forth as knowledge. And a nouveau immoral compass takes the place of balanced, principled moral thought. National myths, innuendo, false allegations and bogeymen in our "post-truth" society are created for the express purpose of centralizing power in the hands of the few through fear much like 1930's Germany. Yet, when a word of contrary truth is uttered to the masses, the machinery of corporate media and compromised government political forces indiscriminately rail against it as if it were some grotesque malignancy in need of immediate extermination. Inevitably, we are showered with legions of lies, like so much confetti at a NYC Wall Street parade. Big Brother deems this around-the-clock lying, and lying about their lying, as necessary for their own maligned purposes for global domination in our society increasingly absent the rule of law. In its place, we have the rule of double-dealing elites playing with our national destinies, economic futures, and lives in a shell game writ large, for whom the light of the truth is a dark and fearful abomination. Evil versus good. Lies versus truth. The genesis of the ancient conundrum launched with a lie. Millennia later, the wide gate and broad way are an overgrown thicket of lies, choking off the narrow pathway to the truth. How have we as a people missed the mark so badly?

Much like our society today, people in the first century wanted to know when Christ would return. But this is a bit of a Catch-22 in that the events that we don't want to experience, i.e., the events of "... a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation ...," the "Apocalypse,"1 sit between us and what we say we want, the return of Christ. The occurrence of these events is driven by our theological lapses, not our political acumen. We need to focus on the causes of our predicament, not the effects. [See Stepping Off The Path Of Truth And Liberty].

The apostles in the first century initially thought Christ would return in their lifetimes. It wasn't until the martyrdom of James, the Lord's brother [Gal. 1:19], by the Edomite Herod in Jerusalem in 63 CE that they realized this probably wasn't going to happen. That's when Peter, and John began to gather up the writings of the apostles so that future generations would have the testimony of those who were taught directly by Christ. It's these traditions2 of the apostles, the written truth of the word of God, that provide us with the benchmark against which all else needs to be compared. As Moses wrote, "He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgement: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." [Deu. 32:4]. This is the bedrock foundation upon which to build our lives. [See the Sneakers article, A Life And Death Pickle Of A Predicament]. 

So the apostle Paul wrote to the ekklesia, a letter to the brethren in Thessalonica, explaining what must take place before Christ's return. Rather than giving heed to worrisome rumours, they would be able to discern these precursory events. For Paul and the other apostles, the " ...end-times events were expected by [the] first century Christians to have a complete fulfillment within that single generation of 40 years that succeeded the death and resurrection of Jesus ... This is what the apostles and most Jews were looking for in the middle of the first century." [Restoring The Original Bible, Ernest L. Martin, p.227]. Thus, Paul would not have realized that his letter would have more relevance for us today, two millennia later, than for our first century brethren. We begin in 2 Ths. 2:1. One caveat. There are no dates or time frames contained herein except to say events spoken of by the apostles and prophets appear to be near, perhaps as close as the door.

1- Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together to him,

The apostle Paul is beseeching, that is, he is requesting, entreating the ekklesia, the members of the church, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, don't be apathetic or lukewarm, pay attention to what he is telling us. Our gathering together to Him, meaning Christ, is a reference to the first resurrection, which occurs immediately following the "Apocalypse." [See the Feature article, Heaven Can Wait II].

2- That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

There were, as there are today, rumours and dates concerning the return of Christ. But Paul is making clear to them, to set their minds at ease, because certain identifiable events will have to happen before this comes to pass. [See 1 Ths. 5].

3- Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Greek, apōleia, destroying, utter destruction, moral, political, economic, etc.];

Two key things need to happen before Christ's return. First, there will be a great falling away from the love of the truth of the word of God. We are neck deep in this escalating trend. [See Falling Away; Our Daily Facebook; Our Daily Facebook 2, Our Daily Facebook 3, also the Sneakers article, The Church Of No God]. Then, the man of sin, the son of perdition, i.e., endless wars and destruction, the beast, the sixth empire of Babylon the Great will be revealed. [Video: War Is Here To Stay; More War]. We are witnessing the prelude to his "coming out of the closet." [See WW3; also 2 Tim. 4:1-5; also the Feature article, Obadiah And The Prophetic Parable Of The Tares].

4- Who opposes, and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

This is as it says in the Book of Daniel, “And the king [the son of perdition] shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak extraordinary things against the God of gods … And he shall plant his tabernacle of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain [Jerusalem] …. " [Dan. 11:37, 45; see Move US Embassy To Jerusalem and Satanic Occult Worship].

5- Don't you remember that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6- And now you know what restrains [the son of perdition] that he might be revealed in his time.

Until recently, the rule of law, or at least our perception thereof, has held back the forces now at play. Justice before the law was blind to one's station in society. US President Richard Nixon lied about the Watergate break-in, and with a coalescence of forces was made to leave office. The proclaimed sentiment of the day was no one is above the law. Today this concept is an anachronistic relic of the facade that is American democracy and justice. The Bush-Cheney-Blair triumvirate lied about WMD in Iraq, and with malice aforethought started the disastrous "global wars on terror," i.e., on humanity [7 Wars], whose fifteen years of increasingly deleterious effects with no end in sight, are ravaging Europe, affecting the lives of hundreds of millions in the world today.3 Yet, there are no consequences for them, at least in the US, or in any criminal court to date. [See Civil Case].

And since then, the Nobel Obama-Clinton-Cameron trio has enhanced the war efforts, enabled and shielded Sunni ISIS and pals, and in one way or another started more wars in Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, with the most catastrophic being Libya to date, not to mention the extra-legal "license-to-kill" weekly drone assassinations that have become routine, except, of course, for those who are the targets. All the while we are lied to daily about their deceitful intent and actions. And this does not even touch on the DNC Fusion GPS dirty tricks dossier lying to the FISA court for political gain. Despite this, Trump was elected. [Author Of The Lies].

But now the word from Trump's military advisors, the justifications for the illegal occupation and war on Syrian soil will continue, exacerbated by the US embassy move to Jerusalem. This is not to mention Trump's global trade war and railing against N. Korea, Iran, Russia, and China based on the rationale of ever changing lies. We should expect the situation in Syria only to worsen based on the prophecies concerning Damascus ending up as a heap of ruins. [See Trump Increases Military Budget; Rule Of Law: Iraq War Casualty; also the Feature articles, The War Dispatches and Revelation 17: Big Brother The Beast Of Babylon].

The no one is above the law sentiment appears to have disappeared into the Godzilla-like maw of the "too big to fail" institutions and elite politicos of Western "civilization." A significant change has taken place in the world in the short space of two decades or so. The peoples of the Western nations established their constitutions and laws on the principles of the codified Judeo-Christian [all Israel, House of Judah, House of Israel, Heb. 8:8] ethic. However, as founding father and US President John Adams said of the US Constitution, "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." This truth is self-evident today. [See Rule Of Law In Western Society; Deviance From Rule Of Law New Normal For US]. As we know, these laws have become irrelevant trifles to those who wield power over our nations, for their guiding principles are not those of Biblical Israel's, but are from the synagogue of Satan. [See Rev. 3:9; Zionist Edom Claims To Be Jews, But Are Not].

The majority of patriotic Americans are laboring under the false notion, promoted by corporate media, that their country is still "Made in the USA." It's not. [The Lie That Keeps On Lying]. The neo-American political system has one party with two heads, one liberal, the other conservative. And the US president is not the one calling the shots. No matter who wins elections, the economy [US Goldman Sachs Treasury Dept.], pro-war machine [Pentagon] and its foreign policy arm [State Dept.] are still run by the same folks. That's why from one administration to the next, from one party to the other, the military-industrial beast keeps growing. [No Matter Who Gets Elected, US Foreign Policy Is War]. So, while the American pomp and circumstance of unfurling bigger and bigger flags increases, in ever expensive billion dollar sports stadiums, the rule of law shrinks.4

Since 9/11, the neo-US, by design, overtly has become the world's leading antagonist, the lawless initiator of coups, wars, and chaos. It remains to be seen if the US will continue considering the nuclear option [a lose-lose proposition] with Russia, China, N. Korea and Iran to achieve their dominating globalist ends. [American Empire Demands An Emperor]. Perhaps this is why Trump has called for the development and use of small nuclear devices [Trump's Teeny Tiny Nukes], so as not to blow everything to smithereens, at least not all at once. Maybe we'll all slowly die off in a nuclear winter instead. Regardless, Bellum Americana has replaced Pax Americana. The same Zionist ilk who controlled the old Soviet Union until its fall, have taken up residence in the halls of the US government via Wall Street from whence they came, accompanied by a renewed US interest in socialism a la the Soviet Socialist Republics and the national socialist Nazi party. [See Wall Street And The Soviet Marxist Revolution; also Wall Street And The CIA].

New "laws," such as the US anti-Constitution "PATRIOT" Act are punitive instruments designed to oppress undesirables, i.e., the 99%, not unlike Stalin's Soviet Union. Americans were told that this law was needed to protect them, when in fact the 300+ page act was planned to be rushed into place in the heat of the 9/11 false flag moment [Readied To Go Before 9/11] to contravene the rule of constitutional law, as clearly it's been used to do by the Lawless One since its implementation. [See Patriot Act; NDAA; NDAA 2].

The elites who control all the key institutions of society have placed themselves above such lawful nuisances, that is until they invoke "King's X," the protective shout in children's games proclaiming exemption from being caught. These false bravado chickenhawks use the very laws and institutions they exploit and ignore to preemptively protect themselves from being found guilty of their illegal deeds by the rest of us. What happens with the Clintons now, in this regard, will be telling. Don't expect much as Obama did nothing about the crimes of Big Bro's foot soldiers Bush and Cheney.

Yet, this modus operandi has been duly accepted by a docile and diverted society, with any meaningful dissent only found among the few. The nucleus of our prophetic predicament is that being apathetic, we have lost our passion for the love of the truth. As Paul points out, the son of perdition will emerge when this takes place. It is vital to remember that our current worsening predicament is of our own making. It is the effect of our abandoning our love of the truth of the word of God. So, guess who's standing on our threshold, pounding on the door? [Read The Big Lie: Perdition's War; also the Feature article, Isaiah 63: Big Brother].

7- For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: and it will remain so until he who is holding it back steps out of the way. [See Iniquity].

Paul is reminding the ekklesia of Thessalonica of these things when he was with them, which was in the latter 40’s CE. He told them that while the mystery of iniquity was already at work in the first century [see the Feature article, The Little Horn: First Century Antichrist], God is holding back the mystery of iniquity until it is time to be known to the world. This mystery of iniquity has been at work for the entirety of the Christian age. [See the Sneakers article, Our History In Context]. And now, it is emerging like a beast out of the sea. "This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand [Aramaic, shĕ'ela', a judicial decision or mandate] by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever he will, and sets up over it the lowliest of men." This prophetic reference is not only about those in public office, but more so about those who pull the strings in the shadows. [Aramaic, 'enash, men, Dan. 4:17; see Isa. 3:12].  

The key to understanding our current predicament is to realize one simple fact: we are the ones at fault here. And it all goes back to one simple dictum: we have abandoned our love of the truth of the word of God. And the primary factor leading us down this path is that we have lost the knowledge of our Biblical ancestry, our heritage. Wrongly believing we are Gentiles, we love and embrace the theological lies. Therefore, we are given over to the love of lies in all aspects of life. We need to be clear about this. It is the hand of God against us due to our recalcitrant choices that has brought us to this point in society. In this regard, we're no different than Adam and Eve who were kicked out of the garden in Eden. Only the scale of the predicament has changed. And it is the hand of God that will continue to be heavy upon us all the way through to the end of the prophecies pertaining to us. Our nations have passed the fail-safe point.

Our current and worsening situation is not coincidence. It stands firmly on our rebellious shoulders. "For thus says the LORD, Your bruise is incurable, your wound grievous. There is none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up: you have no healing medicines. All your lovers have forgotten you; they seek you not; for I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of your iniquity; because your sins were increased, I have done these things to you." [Jer. 30:12-15]. When all this comes to fruition, the "fortress will have departed from Ephraim." This is a reference to the blessings and protection our Lord has given us by promise. [Isa. 17:1-3; see the updated Feature article, Damascus A Heap Of Ruins].

" ... until he who is holding it back steps out of the way." With this in mind, looking back over the past twenty-five years or so, not too long after the formal dissolution of the Soviet Union on December 26, 1991, the elected leaders of the US government, with unprincipled furtive guidance, unilaterally began walking down the lawless path of abandoning treaties aimed at maintaining world order and peace [see ABM Treaty], and laws aimed at protecting financial markets from corruption [Glass-Steagall]. Within ten years, we had 9/11 and the implementation of unconstitutional laws such as the PATRIOT Act and NDAA mentioned above, which according to the US Constitution are illegal.

What has happened in the world during this time, and with the quality of those ruling over the nations of the West? With delirious Russophobia hitting 1950's paranoiac levels in the Western corporate mass hysteria media, and the US Congress [see US Congress], along with the US neocon's love of all things war, the West put the nuclear option of the Cold War back on the table, and made Russia, rather than the old Soviets, the bogeyman for everything under the Sun, from the US backed Ukraine coup [Coup] to Brexit to DNC hacks.5 What's next? Will the West blame Putin for shooting Santa out of the northern sky over Ukraine if corporate retail Christmas receipts are down? Probably. Will people believe the NY Times, the CIAmazon [Washington] Post, MSNBC, CNN, BBC and the rest of the British media when blaming Russia for just about everything? Probably. Our subterranean trolls in government have become masters of creating false flag events. And we have become adept at believing their lies. [See NYT; NYT 2].

Will this trend change with Trump as the new US president? History says no. [From American Republic To Babylonian Empire]. And from all indications, so do current events. The train to perdition needs a bogeyman, and N. Korea has joined Russia, China and Iran in this regard. Let's be very clear about one thing. Those who rule over the US and the West's governments, including the Zionist nation state of Israel, want war, not peace. [See Fruit Of The Diseased Minds Of Sociopaths]. Peace is an anathema to their goals of world domination a la Babylon the Great with its capital in Jerusalem. And our abandoning the love of the truth of the word of God has opened the door for them. So, from one election to another, the goals remain the same, only the political justifications and false flag tactics change as with the UK's alleged Skripal potent lethal nerve agent poisoning for which there is no known antidote treatment that "can stop its assault on human biology." Nevertheless, both spy and daughter, who were fighting for their lives in a British hospital only a few weeks ago, according to first reports, after "treatment" have miraculously survived. [Lethal Novichok Nerve Agent].

Lest we forget, Obama came into office as a welcomed reaction to the wars of the Bush-Cheney regime, whose dual false flag bogeymen were Iraq's Saddam, and al-Qaeda's bin Laden. And Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize too. Yet, after eight years, he started more wars, assassinated more people, and left the world with more chaos than when he started, giving us an alleged new bogeyman, Russia's Putin. This path has not been abandoned. There may be some changes to the railway cars along the way, but there won't be a change in our train's direction or destination in terms of the prophecies.

After the disastrous financial calamity of 2007-2008, a blatant, but convenient plan was brokered by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, nee chairman, CEO Goldman Sachs [Sachs; List Of Sachs Guys In White House; The New Sachs Guy], to bail out his fellow Wall Street institutions by their middle class victims in America [i.e., the House of Israel] after they were loosed upon the world by these Zionist elites. The US president bought and sold it to the public on behalf of Wall Street. [See Not Too Big To Be Bailed Out]. Yet, little or nothing has changed in this latter regard. No lofty Wall Street muckety-muck was held accountable and put in prison. They live high off our backs while we believe their lies. As this upward trend runs along unabated, it doesn't take much imagination to see where we are headed. [Rigging ElectionsTaking Control Of Elections; Speaking Of Lies]. The key point to remember for keeping up with what's happening, watch their actions, tune out their lies.

8- And then shall that Wicked [Greek, anomos, without law, i.e., without the Judeo-Christian ethic, hence the Lawless One] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

While the sixth empire, Babylon the Great will be destroyed at Christ's return, prior to this we will witness the rise of the Lawless One. In the first century, Paul is setting the minds of the ekklesia at ease by telling them that only after the Lawless One emerges, then shall our Lord return. [Again see the Feature article, Obadiah And The Prophetic Parable Of The Tares]. Of course, this did not take place in the first century. But our current day 21st century, more and more destitute of the rule of law, with the legions of lies and unending false flag propaganda and destructive wars, fits the bill.

The rule of law is ignored by those, who by hook or crook, make up the "1%," the oligarch billionaires and central bankers. For Jacob/Israel's brother, Edom, who lives by the sword and all things related to war, [see the Gen. 27:40 prophecy], and those who are in cahoots with him controlling the levers of power and authority, [Dan, see Gen. 49:16, 17; see the Sneakers article, Who Is Dan, And Where Did He Go?], it's all about lies, deceit and war, domestic and foreign, both financial and militaristic, and more war. The old version of the moral, honest and principled US is gone. It has been replaced, never to be seen again according to the prophecies. [See Lawlessness In The New West; The War Nation].

It's time for people, Americans in particular, to realize that the negative effects of flagrant manipulation and contravention of international law affects the good ol' US of A too, not just Europe and the Middle East. Those eager folks who call for war are unwitting dupes whose words will come back and land squarely on their own heads before all is said and done. [See 21st Century Wars and Driving The World To War; and the Feature article, Is That You, Big Brother?]. It's the descendants of Abram/Abraham in a millennia long family dispute over the Genesis birthright. And we are losing, big time.

9- Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Once the Lawless One has fully emerged, it will be as we read in Revelation, “And does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on earth in the sight of men, and deceives them that dwell on the earth by those miracles, which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast ….” [Rev. 13:11-18; 20:2]; see the Sneakers article, Flying Saucers In The Bible ... Really?]. To use a current analogy, we are in the beta test phase at the moment. The Lawless One will cause those of the nations of Biblical Israel and others to make an image to the first beast and worship it or be killed. We are so stubborn in our defiance of God and the truth that we will be pushed to this point. The Biblical Greek word worship is proskyneō, which is to bow down or kneel before in reverence and obeisance. Christianity is oblivious to the fact that, in principle, it does this already with Easter, the Babylonian spring goddess of fertility, sex and war. It's just that the beast finally will put it out in the open for all to see. [See the updated Feature article, Easter, Babylon And The Antichrist].

10- And with all deceit [in order to promote] unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

We come to the fulcrum of the matter. As a people, the House of Israel has rejected our salvation, for Jesus Christ is the truth. [See the Feature article, Our Corrupted Compass]. This is the heart and core of our predicament today, the falling away, with its many diversions, both secular and religious. It is why we believe the lies told to us whether they be political, cultural, financial, societal, psychological or theological. Before the advent of the sixth empire of the beast, the nations of Israel will have rejected the love of the truth of the word of God in toto. We've just about reached this point. [In Our Schools; note: this has been attributed to several different sources over the years, but its point is indicative]. In the first century, those who heard the truth of the gospel rejoiced. Today, we cover our ears. We have adopted the ways of our adversary, who is the deceiver. [See Edom/Zionist Symbol; also see Lies].

As Christ said to those of Edom in the first century, the first century Edomite Zionists, whose descendants will be revealed as Babylon the Great, the sixth empire in our end times, "If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why don't you understand my speech? Because you cannot hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell the truth, you don't believe me." [John 8:42-45; see the Book Excerpt, The Great Rebellion, The Curious Elephant]. And neither do we hear the truth of the word of God. We are pelted with lies upon lies, both religious and political. So it is, with eager ears, we listen to, and believe those whose father is the devil, the beast and the false prophet. This is why we need to look at their actions and not listen to their words, which are lies, as Christ pointed out to us. 

Our Western society no longer believes Christ. We have succumbed to her majesty, the darkness of lies, rather than living the light of the truth of the word of God. When we justify our actions, preferring lies to the word of God, we are given over to believe the lies, including the thoroughly invasive theological lies of Christmas and the Babylonian Easter espoused by our blinded pastors. "For the pastors are stupid, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered." [Jer. 10:21; see the Holiday section, Christmas Messages]. Added to this are the lies of the politicians and Edom, the son of perdition. We are assaulted daily. And so it is, we go along with the deception, believing in so-called patriotic wars to secure the world for democracy and from the threat of the Russian bogeyman when it is the exact opposite. [See War Is Corporate Racketeering]. Edom is not out to be our savior, but our captor and destroyer. They are a lying pied piper who will destroy us and our children because we refuse the love of the truth that we might be saved. [See Can America And Europe Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them?].

A racing we go into unrighteousness, straying from the path of righteousness and truth set before us. By all appearances with our love of Santa, the Easter Bunny, and other so-called "harmless" duplicities, we could care less. What we fail to realize is that the Santa/Satan duo are two sides, the false prophet and the beast, of the same coin. They are a package deal. By following the one, we follow the other. By loving the one, we love the other. Justifications aside, there are no one-sided coins. [See the Feature article, Moving Forward].

11- And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

"This is not just a matter of avoiding ... political or criminal accountability, but a real instance of collective cognitive dissonance among people who have genuinely, although often self-servingly, embraced a deviant culture ... The deviant U.S. foreign policy bureaucracy [primarily the US State Dept. and the Defense Dept.,] has branded the formal rules [of law] that are supposed to govern our country’s international behavior as “obsolete” and “quaint”, as a White House lawyer wrote in 2004. [See Bolton: National Lawlessness Advisor]. And yet these are the very rules that past U.S. leaders deemed so vital that they enshrined them in constitutionally binding international treaties and U.S. law." [Nicholas J.S. Davies, US War Crimes; "Russiagate" Reveals More About US Than Russia].

The blinded leadership of our Western countries already have embraced the lies, which have metastasized into the ranks of the bureaucracy as Davies noted. It is as the loser Hitler said, "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." So here we are, listening rather than watching. "And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings [the leaders of the nations of Israel, see the Feature article, Ten Horns, Ten Nations] ... These have one mind and shall give their power and strength to the beast," aka the Lawless One, the son of perdition. [Rev. 17:12, 13]. Putting this in secular terms, they have "collective cognitive dissonance and embrace a deviant culture ...." Mission accomplished. [See Of One Mind; and for an interesting look at the societal destroying effects of embracing this deviant culture, read Professor Jordan Peterson's book, 12 Rules For Life].

This helps explain why the elected leaders of the sovereign nations of the US, UK, Germany, France, the rest of Western Europe and Canada are behaving contrary to the long-term interests of their own nations in favor of global corporations and the Zionists. One example is support for the TTIP, TPP and CETA, the Canadian version, and the new globalist kid on the block, TISA. At their basest level, they are designed to undermine national sovereignty of the nations of Israel/Jacob and our rule of law, in favor of anti-Judeo-Christian multinational globalist corporations, i.e., the beast, and the merchants who buy and sell their merchandise. [See Rev. 18:11-16; also One Mind]. Although, US President Trump said he will stop the TPP [EU], and the TTIP [Asia]. Watch to see what happens with these proposed trade agreements in all the Western nations, and with Trump's push for global trade war.

We are witnessing a fundamental change in our society, a coalescing of thought and action that has been moving us towards the sixth empire, Babylon the Great. This is indicative of our leaders becoming of one mind, undermining their countries and their offices, giving away their power and economic, social and political strength to the beast, i.e., the Zionists, neocons, Deep State or Big Brother, no matter how far apart they are on the political spectrum. From this prophetic perspective, Canada's Prime Ministers, the conservative Harper and the liberal Trudeau are both in support of CETA. It is corporate global fascism of the beast over democratic nationalism of all the nations of Israel.

This is strong delusion indeed. But there is a reason for it. Christ's hand is against us. It is the time of Jacob's trouble. As we read, "For God has put in their [leaders of the nations of Israel] hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom [power and authority] to the beast [Edom], until the words of God shall be fulfilled." [Rev. 17:17]. The English word agree here is three words in Greek, ποιῆσαι μίαν γνώμην, which transliterated is poieō mia gnōmē. Put together they mean to make of one mind. Kingdom here refers to their giving away, gifting their power and authority to rule. Simply put, they will have one mind in giving away their power and authority to non-elected entities, the beast, exactly as is stated here in the prophecies. We may continue to elect our leaders, at least in the near future, but puppets of one mind they will be, serving the prophesied will of our Lord. This will continue until these words of God are fulfilled according to his purpose. And his purpose is to punish Jacob, both the Houses of Israel and Judah, because we have forsaken the love of the truth of the word of God. We no longer hear his word.

In turn, we are given to believe the lies of our leaders. Again as Hitler realized, "The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one." So we get big lies with a supporting cast of thousands of little lies daily. [Liars Build Their Narrative On Top Of Previous Lies]. This leads to our great harm, a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation of Israel. These lies and deceitful performances take place right in front of our eyes, in the open, and on television and internet "news" especially since 2001 [see MediaINT]. All it takes is a simple wave of the oxymoronic "national security" wand, and viola, rights, liberties and laws vanish making us less secure.

And the last thing any country wants to hear is that the US is concerned for their "democracy." This is a lie. It means the US wants to get rid of that country's democracy because they are at odds with the US Zionist "living by the sword" global domination goals. [Pentagon's New Mission Statement]. So it's war as Saddam and Gaddafi experienced, and Assad is experiencing in Syria. And whoever becomes the opposition is labeled as the proverbial "bad guy," as with Putin. And of course, the Western IQ challenged masses, who have been trained from childhood in their school systems to be true believers, and memorize, tend to gobble up the corporate media's lies in this regard.

Yet blind, we accept this just as the apostle Paul told the ekklesia in the first century that we would. This verse 11 has ceased being prophetic. It has come to fruition. Whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, by the hand of God we are on the lawless path leading to the fall of the US and the other Western nations, and the establishment of Babylon the Great. We are witnessing prophecy in the making. [See the Feature article, Revelation 17: Big Brother; US Okays Jerusalem As Capital Of Zionist Israel].

Bottom line, this all begins with one thing: we have forsaken the love of the truth of the word of God. It's the great falling away. And our chaotic circumstances are the ongoing result. Look at where our society of perpetual wars has fallen to since 9/11. Look at where we are today. And Paul has let us know where we are headed. It’s the events described in Revelation and the Old Testament prophecies. [See Secret Oil Task Force, Secret Meetings And The Saudis and 28 Pages]. There is an unbroken path from the 2001 titanic lie [Titanic, go to p.23] tipping point event [Billion Dollar Tipping Point$; Tipping Point 2], a stepping out of the way, to the events of the Apocalypse, and the return of Christ. However, we aren't given the timeline, only the sequence of the process.

12- That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
`
These are very strong words. All, as in everyone, are damned by the hand of God who believe not the truth. What's not clear about this? Besides nothing, what are you going to do now? As Christ said of this comprehensive damnation, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." [Mat. 24:22]. This isn't an idle warning, folks. As sure as you are reading this, it will happen.

Now is the time to be "shaken in mind, troubled by spirit, by word, or by letter ...." Of all the descendants of Israel today, we are told only 144,000 of the nations will be saved out of the 1.5 billion or so. And this takes place in a three and a half year period. Remember, the elitist goal is to reduce the world's population down to about 500 million. We stand at 7 billion today. From Zionist Edom's point of view, getting rid of the entire 1.5 billion of all the nations of Israel has multiple benefits for their goal of world dominion. [See Rev. 7:3-8; read the Feature article, And Now, A Word From Our Sponsor]. Nevertheless, there will be a remnant of Israel who are the seed for rebuilding the land of Israel in the Millennium, the recovered outcasts and dispersed of all Israel from the four corners of the Earth. [See Isa. 11:11, 12].

Keep in mind, the "Apocalypse" is the time of Jacob's, not the gentile's or world's, trouble. We are the focal point. Although the people's of the world, all flesh too, who have been recipients of the benefits bestowed by the promised blessings to the nations of Israel, will be affected. [See Jer. 30:4-7; Rev. 18:9-20; also the Sneakers article, Have Cannon, Need Saint]. All the nations of Jacob/Israel, the US, UK, the Western European Christian nations, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Judah are all in deep poo-poo. And it's getting deeper every day. Nevertheless, our, the House of Israel and Judah's, deliberate unrighteous actions, "a falling away first," ignoring the truth of the word of God in favor of our "traditions of men," accelerate us daily in that direction as written in the prophecies. [A Lie: God Can't See Our Falling Away]. Remember, as we've repeatedly made the point over the years in chapter after chapter, in article after article, the Biblical record is one book written for the same people from Genesis to Revelation ... all twelve nations of Israel. [See the Feature articles, Christ Against Christians? and The Tale Of Two Covenants].

13- But, we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has, from the beginning [Greek, archē, used absolutely as in the beginning of all things] chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Paul makes an abrupt break here. He highlights the chasm between those who are damned that refuse to believe the truth, and the chosen brethren, the ekklesia, who have salvation through sanctification of the Spirit of God and the love of the truth. The difference between the two is clear and undeniable. We are on one side of this apocalyptic abyss or the other. [See Luke 17:34-37]. No one who forsakes the love of the truth of the word of God in their lives can justify any claim to salvation through their unrighteousness. As we are told, from the beginning, “ … those ordained to eternal life believed” the truth. [Acts 13:48; see the Feature article, The Good News Colour Revolution, v. 48 commentary in particular].

14- Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15- Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions, which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16- Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17- Comfort your hearts, and establish yourselves in every good word and work.

" ... brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has, from the beginning, chosen you to salvation ... and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts ...." This is a key principle of understanding that Paul mentions here. And while it is subtle, it is a compelling marker by which we can know where we stand. When reading through this article and the words written here by Paul, were you troubled and discomforted by what you've read? Or were you comforted in the well-founded knowledge that you have the love of the truth of the word of God, and the promise to keep us from the time of trouble that shall come upon the world, standing fast and holding on to the traditions of God in faith rather than those of men and the son of perdition? [See Rev. 3:10].

Most of us, if we were asked, would claim to want to know the truth. But a passing nod to the truth is not enough. The truth needs to be an intrinsic, vital part of living our daily lives. It needs to permeate our awareness. We are admonished to seek first the kingdom, the power and authority of God. Resolute, we must stand with the love of the truth. We use to have leaders that were, well, leaders. In all walks of life, they were men and women of character, pillars of moral strength devoted to principles of the truth and God over the expediency and greed of mammon. Too often now, society's leaders are nothing more than bullies with power. Strip them of their trappings of power and office, and we see how cowardly and puny they are. They are the most ignoble of human beings when it comes to the light of the truth.

The tragedy in this is that by abandoning our God-given birthright, we give them their strength over us.

The callous mistress of lies becomes stronger when we cower regarding the love of the truth in our lives. And because of our apathy, and refusal to accept personal responsibility, "we receive not the love of the truth, that we might be saved. And for this cause God shall send us strong delusion, that we should believe a lie, that we all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." Unrighteousness, the Greek adikia refers to our being morally apathetic in heart and life. As our Lord tells us, "So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth." [Rev. 3:16]. Be hot. Be cold. But this is not the time to be lukewarm, indifferent or half-hearted thinking it's safe to walk down the middle of the road.

The point of this is we don't care about the truth of the word of God, lip-service aside. We take defiant pleasure in the deceits of Christmas and Easter, training our children to love the darkness of perdition's lies. Yet, we decry the lies coming out of the mouths of our politicians. But the lies of our government and media are the result of our loving the lies of Christmas and Easter. For some reason, we don't get the cause and effect relationship especially given the words of our LORD to us. "See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil ... But if your heart turn away, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them ... I announce to you this day, that you shall surely perish ... I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live: that you may love the LORD your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him: for he is your life, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them." [Deu. 30:15-20; also see Luke 13:22-28; and the Sneakers article, A Life And Death Pickle Of A Predicament].  

Our ancestors didn't heed our LORD's advice nor do we. But it is as valid today as it was then. We are enablers of our own demise. We fool ourselves into believing we can do as we please. Hypocritically, we exploit the religious lies to suit us, but expect truth and honesty from our politicians. But this two-faced approach to life means that because we believe the religious lies of the false prophet, we are blinded and given over to believe the lies of the son of perdition that are heaped upon us daily with their prophesied consequences unfolding before our eyes daily.

The evidence of the the Lawless One, the son of perdition pervades our daily lives. When we make a dedicated choice in our heart and life to stand up with the truth, it becomes clear. The unfolding of Christ's prophetic warning has opened a chasm. There is no middle ground to stand on. "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other." [Mat. 6:24]. Being apathetic, lukewarm is not an option. Otherwise, we will be damned along with the lies. [See the Sneakers article, Warning: Do Not Ski Beyond This Point].

We live under the dark shadow of perdition. From all aspects of life, lies rain down upon us like an evil plague, which in fact they are. How far have we slid into the darkness that our young children are being taught in schools, and parents are prevented to opt their children out of this, that our DNA chromosomes, XX or XY, makes no difference, you can choose to be whatever sex, boy, girl or other, you identify with. How screwed up is this lie when compared to the truth of the word of God? "Male [XY] and female [XX] created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam [mankind, or peoplekind for you folks in Canada, eh?], in the day when they were created." [Gen. 5:2]. 

So it is that we have come to stand on a threshold not seen since there was a nation in the world. Do we succumb to the invasive corrupt lies or seek shelter from them in the truth of the word of God? We need to seriously consider Paul's words here that were written for us. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together to him." We are nearing the latter stage of the Christian age, as noted by Paul's referencing the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ here, and as Christ and the prophecies have warned us.

The apostles asked Christ, “ ... what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?" He ended by telling them, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh: so likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors.” [Read Mat. 24:3-33].

Now, pay close attention to what Christ says to the final era of the church before his return, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in and will sup with him, and he with me.” [Rev. 3:20].

Knock, knock.



Postscript: "And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified ... Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." [Acts 20:32, Col. 3:16; GracePraise; and Remember].



1 The word Apocalypse is the Greek word, apokalypsis. It means a revelation, a disclosure as a noun. Used as a verb, it is apokalyptō, meaning to reveal. The Book of Revelation, therefore, is a book of revealing the truth of the word of God as to events that are taking place, and will take place in our not too distance future. Common usage of the word "Apocalypse" as end of the world is misleading. First, the world will not end, only the Christian age. And two, the Book of Revelation contains much more than the rise and fall of Babylon the Great. Ironically, while the Book is about revealing to us events from the first century all the way to the new Earth, the book of revealing remains a mystery to Christians. [See the Feature articles, And It's Still A Mystery and Why Was Jesus Jewish, But Not Moses?].

2 The word tradition in verse 15 is the Greek paradosis. It means to transmit by giving over, in this case the giving over the truth of the word of God to us as written in the Biblical record, delivered by those chosen by God for this purpose. Tradition as used here translates into a love of the truth, and not of the false religious and moral traditions of men, i.e., Christmas, Easter, Heaven as the ultimate end, transgenderism, etc.

traditions--truths delivered and transmitted orally, or in writing ( 2Th 3:6; 1Cr 11:2; Greek, "traditions"). The Greek verb from which the noun comes, is used by Paul in 1Cr 11:23 15:3. From the three passages in which "tradition" is used in a good sense, Rome has argued for her accumulation of uninspired traditions, virtually overriding God's Word, while put forward as of co-ordinate authority with it. She [the Roman church] forgets the ten passages ( Mat 15:2, 3, 6Mar 17:3-15 Gal 1:14 Col 2:8 ) stigmatizing man's uninspired traditions [i.e., lies]. Oral inspiration was necessary in their [the apostles] case, until the canon of the written Word should be complete; they proved their possession of inspiration by miracles wrought in support of the new revelation, which revelation, moreover, accorded with the existing Old Testament revelation; an additional test needed besides miracles (compare Deu. 13:1-6; Acts 17:11 ). When the canon was complete, the infallibility of the living men [when guided by the Spirit of God] was transferred to the written Word, now the sole unerring guide, interpreted by the Holy Spirit. [See 1 John 2:27].

“Little else has come down to us by the most ancient and universal tradition save this, the all-sufficiency of Scripture for salvation. Therefore, by tradition, we are constrained to cast off all tradition not contained in, or not provable by, Scripture.

“Scripture is, according to Paul, the complete and sufficient rule in all that appertains to making "the man of God perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" ( 2Ti 3:16, 17 ). It is by leaving Paul's God-inspired tradition for human traditions [i.e., lies] that Rome has become the forerunner and parent of the Antichrist. It is striking that, from this very chapter denouncing Antichrist, she should draw an argument for her "traditions" by which she fosters anti-Christianity. Because the apostles' oral word was as trustworthy as their written word, it by no means follows that the oral word of those not apostles is as trustworthy as the written word of those who were apostles or inspired evangelists. No tradition of the apostles except their written word can be proved genuine on satisfactory evidence.” [A.R. Fausset, JFB Commentary].

3 "This war, Bush tells the troops (both nearly literally in the case of his address to military spouses, and more broadly in terms of his support base and ruling class critics), [is] a global battle between good and evil. One that will last--as Dick Cheney put it--'for generations.'" Endless War.

4 The irony here is that phrase "Pomp and Circumstance," which became the first in a set of five military marches by Edward Elgar, and played ad nauseam at US school graduation ceremonies, was used in Shakespeare's Othello, in Act 3, Scene 3 when he bids adieu to his military career, the "pomp and circumstance of glorious war!" It is a Shakespearean tragedy. The antithetical tragedy for unaware Americans is that they are increasingly the world's primary instigators of all things military. In parallel, when losing more of their liberties and freedom at home, American warring policies increase to the detriment of peace and prosperity in the rest of the world. Faux patriotic theater is especially noticeable at nationally televised sporting events with billionaire owned corporations providing the glorious "pomp and circumstance" of unfurling football pitch-size flags, complete with the presence of the military at the playing of the war-inspired US national anthem. In the end, America will share the tragic fate of Othello. And in the process, Americans, like Othello, are duped into killing that which they profess to love.

5 After weeks of Hillary and crew blaming Russia for the DNC email leak, and the big lie after the loss of the election, repeated for effect, "Russia hacked the election," dutifully propagated by the NY Times, Amazon Post, CNN and other mass media, the FBI in the first week of November has come out to say it was a Washington insider job. In August 2017, investigative reporter Seymour Hersh identified murdered Seth Rich as the leaker. There was no Russia hack. It's just another lie in the long list of lies. [Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker].
