Restoring Confidence in God’s Help Requires Destroying Speculations

The magnificent proclamations of Isaiah the prophet of the identity of God

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Notice how the prophet Isaiah repeatedly affirms Who this LORD is … among the many statements in these chapters 40-45 of Isaiah.

Isaiah 40:21 asks “Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?”

Who is this God Isaiah claims to speak for?

Isaiah 40:22-23 tells us “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.”

Then he asks the question…

Isaiah 40:25 … “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.”

His answer gives us a clue of how to discover Him by examining His works.

Isaiah 40:26: “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.”

And then another question for us humans who may need improved perception spiritually…

Isaiah 40:28 asks, “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”

This is the background framework we’re given to validate the wonderful promise that so many have staked their faith on.  …

Isaiah 40:29-31 famously promises,

“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Further affirmation of God’s identity and power is Isaiah 42:5-7.

“Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”

And don’t miss verse 8.

”I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”

Strengthening the message even more, God speaks to us through His prophet further in Isaiah 43:10-11.

“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.  I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”

Isaiah 44:24 tells us plainly, “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself…”

And further in the prophecy foretelling Cyrus to rebuild God’s city of peace, Jerusalem, in Isaiah 45:18, he says: “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else… and going on in verse 21… “there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

Because of Who God is, His followers are in a Warfare

I’m reminded why Paul exhorts Christ’s reborn sons and daughters to engage in “our warfare” and “cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God… bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Co. 10:4-5).

Yet, hardly a day passes without hearing a barrage of ‘vain speculations’ from idolatrous pagans who deify nature and defy true science.  That’s why we are repeatedly warned to “Beware” of the traps set by the enemy to deceive God’s people (Co. 2:8).  “Do not be deceived.”  Isn’t it amazing how easily God’s own people – all of us – can so easily be drawn into the same temptation as Eve?  “Hath God really said?”

Naturalism is inevitable for those who Reject the knowledge of God

You’ve heard the reports… new so-called ‘discoveries’ point to naturalism – to evolutionary processes – to explain that the Creator wasn’t necessary.  Maybe because water molecules are detected on Mars, life could have evolved there.  Science has only demonstrated that life can’t evolve here on earth.  What makes anyone think that it could evolve out in space?  Answer: “vain imaginations” (Ro. 1:21) by those who refuse to “retain God in their knowledge” (Ro. 1:28).  Reading Romans chapter one helps us understand the harsh warning of Hosea 4:6.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Prov. 1:7)… and it continues… “but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Did you know Charles Darwin pronounced a challenge for modern science to prove him wrong?

“if it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.”

In other words, if you can find just one example of a complex creature or organ or system in nature that could not have evolved by natural processes, then the entire evolutionary ‘house of cards’ collapses… the make-believe billions of years vanishes as a masquerade.  All the bogus explanations of nature-worshipping textbooks that have to be grossly revised every few years because of new discoveries… eradicated… gone.  All because they refuse to listen to God.

Think of just one example… the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly.  Which was created first the butterfly or the caterpillar?  If we’re honest in responding to Job’s invitation to inquire of the creatures of the earth (Job 12:8) we can’t avoid concluding, “who doesn’t know that the hand of the Lord has done this?”

The female butterfly lays her egg in just the right place where the tiny new-hatched caterpillar begins immediately feasting on the special leaves that provide just the right nutrition for a few days as it grows and grows.  Then it stops eating and growing to make a thread to hang itself from a branch as it transforms into a chrysalis, a virtual straight-jacket tomb, where it proceeds to dissolve into a formless soup.  In just a few more days the soup constructs itself into a marvelous flying creature with totally new systems of life.  Emerging in only a few minutes when the process is complete, it inflates its spectacular wings with the bio-chemistry to serve new muscles, joints and support structures and flies away to continue the cycle to the next generation.

Contrary to what die-hard naturalistic evolutionists insist their students accept by blind faith, there have never been any fossils showing the evolution of this remarkable system.  They find fossils of butterflies but they are all as perfectly complete as the ones flying the skies today.

If a young person asks you for an explanation of why you think evolution can’t be true, just ask him, “have you thought about your eyes lately?”  The Bible says (in Prov. 20:12), “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.”

Eyes are wondrous organs.  Fossils of various creatures drowned and buried in the Deluge show completely modern and complex eyes.  There is no evolutionary process that has ever been suggested to form the eye in step by step fashion.  Evolutionists claim we evolved from fish.  Fish living in water don’t need tears.  If a fish came out of the water it would quickly become blind for lack of tears.  We depend on eyelids to help clean and protect our eyes.  Fish don’t have those either.  Our tears contain specific antimicrobial chemical compounds that are needed to neutralize microscopic pathogens. Our healthy eyes wouldn’t last a day without these well-designed specifications.  How could tear ducts suddenly appear and evolve with all the capabilities of producing these chemicals?

Reclaiming A Godly Legacy of Confidence in the Bible

A Special One Day Conference to Help Families Save their Next Generation from the Pied Piper of Secularism

DO YOU WANT TO BE EQUIPPED TO EXPOSE THE DISTORTION OF BASIC BIBLICAL TRUTH IN THE POPULAR MEDIA TODAY?

ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN YOUNG PERSON, YOUTH LEADER OR PARENT, CONCERNED HOW TO PREVENT YOUR CHRISTIAN FAMILY FROM BEING LED ASTRAY BY THE “PIED PIPER” OF SECULARISM?

This special one-day event is designed to inform and equip alert parents and leaders to change the trend that is literally captivating and ensnaring the next generation of children who would otherwise be learning to fully follow Christ so they can expose the fallacies of the secular world.  See the details at www.ReclaimYourLegacy.com/GenesisLegacy and share the event with your friends at https://www.facebook.com/events/568393846925396/ — reserve seats at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/genesislegacy-tickets-50054218515?aff=efbeventtix

The so-called millennial generation and others are being overwhelmingly deceived by “high-sounding” ideologues of Secularism.  It’s no secret that the world of news media and the big government business of education has the whole society subjected to their indoctrination. They even have many esteemed church leaders ‘charmed’ into thinking they can’t defend the Bible with intellectual honesty.  With God’s help, this alarming situation will change… but only when fearless Champions of God’s INERRANT WORD take seriously the challenge to Renew their minds by testing the vain imaginations of those who willfully ignore the knowledge of God that the Creator has made evident for all to see.

What do students learn when they patiently “test all things?”  What do they see when they investigatively  “speak to the earth?”  What do they discover when they deliberately “ask the beasts” of the world?  What amazing insights are gained when they “inquire of the former age” about the “world that then existed” before the Flood?

Those are just some of the sweeping panoramas of discovery we’ll be exploring together at this historic local event.  Why “historic?”  Because those who attend will not soon forget the life-changing realities spotlighted at this one-of-a-kind event.

A few weeks ago, a surprising event happened.  Being a fairly energetic person, I never imagined it would happen to me at the young age of 71.  I was awakened at 4 in the morning with what later proved to be a heart attack.  When I finally got to the hospital after all the technology available was used to examine me, it was apparent that I had close to a 99% plaque blockage in the ‘widow-maker’ artery that supplies oxygen to two-thirds of the heart muscle.  A painless and fairly non-invasive microscopic process was used to expand the blocked artery and insert a stent to allow life-giving blood to flow freely to all the heart.  Apparently little damage was done.  Other than slightly higher than normal blood pressure that’s being monitored with exercise and medication, the prognosis looks pretty good.  But I’m reminded anew that every day of life is a gift from God.

Four decades ago the Lord impressed me with the invitation of Psalm 66.  “Come and see the Works of God.  He is Awesome in His deeds for the children of men.”  I’ve spent more than half my life dedicated to sharing the “wonderful works of God.”  I’ve been honestly perplexed why more Christian leaders don’t take the command in Psalm 145 more seriously.  “One generation SHALL praise Thy works to another and declare Thy mighty acts.”  What an invitation to partner with the Lord of all creation to lead young learners in discovering God’s awesome demonstration of His power in the world around us.

Now, I’m re-energized in my spirit to join the Psalmist’s prayer in Psalm 71.  “O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works.  Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed Thy strength unto this generation, and Thy power to everyone that is to come.” (verses 17-18).

Will you join me in this challenging venture?  Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to bring our children and grandchildren – God’s ‘lambs’ – to discover some of His “Awesome Works.”

If you haven’t shown your family yet, wait until you see the compelling evidence that the animals that God calls “the Chief of the ways of God” actually were created right alongside with our grandfather Adam on this earth about 6,000 historical years ago.  Some of the descendants of those ‘behemoths’ that we call dinosaurs actually survived the world covering Deluge of Noah’s time.  Jesus staked His reputation on it.  And it’s only because we’ve been blinded by traditional philosophies of vain deceit that our generation has been led astray by secular ‘pied pipers’ who are alienated from the life of God and darkened in their understanding (Ephesians 4:18).  True forensic scientific research actually affirms the Bible and refutes the make-believe stories of evolutionary naturalism.  Our first morning session on October 6th at the County fairgrounds in Placerville, will showcase vivid evidences that dinosaurs and mankind walked this earth at the same time.  It’s time to reclaim God’s created giants of the animal world to glorify the Creator and stop letting our young ones think they are the mascot of God-less evolution.

The two afternoon sessions will have a little help from two of my expert friends.  Bruce Malone and Dan Biddle will join me (via video) to dismantle popular secular myths about origins and unpack some of the vivid visual evidences for Genesis creation and the World Wide Deluge.

In our first presentation we’ll explore some of the remarkably effective connections for true seekers of truth.  Showcasing highlights from my soon-to-be-released new book, we’ll break down for young learners a few of the 7 Persuasive Keys to the Awesome Works of God.  Then, before dinner, we’ll look at some of the awesome evidences that are hardly ever seen in schools or museums about the miraculous creation and the overwhelming Great Flood of Noah’s time.

After supper, we’ll do just what the ancient writer of Job invites us all to do.  “Speak to the Earth and let it teach thee.”  What do fossils and ancient artifacts actually uncover about God’s Awesome Works?  Then we’ll see a special bonus from Dr. Del Tackett, of the Truth Project as we witness a premier showing of his new documentary movie, “Is Genesis History?”

Be sure to visit our event page at ReclaimYourLegacy.com/GenesisLegacy and check our Facebook page at ReclaimingYourLegacyRadioShow.

And be sure to let me know when you attend that you heard about it here.  I look forward to meeting you and sharing during our Q&A times after each of the four sessions on October 6th.

 

 

12 Life Changing Dynamics you can start today

12 Personal Development Dynamics that will Enhance Your Life so you can Enhance the lives of others

by Dennis Petersen

Imagine you just got a direct message from God that your efforts in a critical area will soon be rewarded!  You’re excited… Are you ready for your marching orders now?  Imagine that his next download to your brain is this: “Take action today on that excellent thought you just had.”  That’s a pretty straight forward simple command.  Are you ready to take his command to heart?

Let’s be honest with ourselves.  Within the providence of our Creator, the only way you can truly prosper in life is to bring benefits, advantages, profits or blessings into the lives of others.  Once we grow up enough to realize that in order to harvest a crop you have to plant and cultivate a seed, we can be free to focus on others and not be so worried about ourselves and our self interests all the time.  But that takes some extraordinary self control and openness to adjust our natural tendencies to fear everything around us that appears to threaten our personal prosperity and peace of mind.

Think about it.  Do you want to get off the vicious cycle of self-centered anxiety that tends to make us think we have to dominate others or trick them into giving us what we want?  There are reasons why more than 90% of the people around our society are anxious about temporal things continually and lacking the abundant life that we were designed by our Creator to experience.

Have you heard the basic principle of the law of the harvest?  The Golden Rule?  If you want to make a change in your destination you have to make a change in your direction.  As you take the high road of developing yourself and becoming more of what you were created to be, you are then able to help others do the same and experience more of the abundant life that is available to them.

And because we were put into a tangible world filled with stuff to be developed and expanded with the touch of our own creativity and resourcefulness, we inevitably have to get mature about the use and management of the stuff that is on loan to us for this fleeting ‘vapor’ we call our life.

I believe that these suggestions will help you accomplish more, discover more, profit more and add more to whatever your business is about… even inviting more people to your cause, your project, your business and your community.

If you are one of the people who have chosen to participate in a project or business that is all about building a network of team members for a special cause or enterprise, you MUST understand something that great leaders have discovered. It’s simply this: that IF you become a better person, you WILL attract better people to you – just the kind of people you want on your team. AND you will inevitably enlarge your influence. You may think it is only a great script or book full of facts that influences people to take action.  In reality it’s much more.  The words and the facts must be made vibrant through HOW you actually say things and WHO you are to the person when you are talking to them. IF you improve your life and how you feel about yourself, the dynamic energy that you send out will be greater and more compelling so that people will actually want to be around you.

Think about it.  This is why the disciples of Jesus were able to turn the world upside down.  The people could tell that the disciples had spent time with their leader, their teacher and coach.  If you want to truly leave a legacy that positively influences other people for generations to come, find a mentor.  Find a coach.  Find living examples of the qualities you want to emulate.  Listen to them.  Read their books.  Participate in the activities that they are participating in.  Join their cause.  Show them you are willing to go the extra mile.  Let them see that you show up for the events.  Let them see that you are following their example.  Let them see that you are disciplined enough to do the challenging things that demand that you improve yourself, learn new skills and receive the life-changing insights that make you a more productive human being.

So let’s look at a dozen simple things you can do to improve your life and be that legacy-minded person that will influence others to be as blessed and as successful as you are willing to be yourself.

12 Ways to Improve Your Life

  1. First of all, Smile more. Now here is a choice that doesn’t cost you a cent … it’s simple and easy to implement and it will INSTANTLY make you more attractive to other people. Decide today to conscientiously do this one thing. It will improve your life and communicate to others what they often refer to as a more positive “vibe” or vibration. Anytime someone – even a stranger – locks eyes with you, even for a fleeting moment, give them a big ole smile.  There’s something very satisfying about giving away a free smile and getting a free smile given right back to you.   I realize in New York City they might think you’re up to something, but do it anyway.  It just might strike up a conversation and make a new friend.
  2. Next, Compliment more. In fact, let’s put this into practice right now. Make it a goal to compliment at least ten people today. If you don’t get out much, call at least a couple of people you haven’t talked to in awhile and expect nothing in return from your honest appreciation of something you truly like about what they have brought into your own life. You can tell them you like their shoes, their shirt, or their hair. Maybe you think they have an intriguing accent.  Whatever you can honestly think about that would make them feel good about themselves in hearing it from you, just let them know it.  It really doesn’t matter if they are strangers or if they are people you know.  When you compliment them on something about their personhood that you genuinely admire or respect, this doesn’t just make them think about you in a more positive light, it also creates an emotional treasure inside of you that will continue to improve how you feel about yourself.
  3. Now, let’s work on your self-talk. The next time you go to say “I am” and follow it with anything negative that you tend to constantly say about yourself, say it better. So, instead of saying “I am not very good at (a certain skill like remembering peoples’ names),” say, “I am grateful that I am getting better at remembering people’s names.” You can do this and truly mean it IF you want to become a better person.  If you have that desire this is a really important place to focus on daily.  That nasty language that we carry around about ourselves is VERY destructive.   What you habitually say about yourself is what you are reinforcing to be true and manifest into reality.
  4. Start your day off right with personal declarations or affirmations that you can be challenged by and built up by. After we read our Bible and pray for God’s providence in our daily actions, let’s put our mouth in agreement with our beliefs by giving ourselves some positive self-talk. A good place to start is by agreeing with what God’s Word says about us or expects for us.  This is a good way to remind ourselves that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”   I personally like present tense “I am” statements that you can put your heart into. An example would be “Because the Lord has given me a new day in His strength, I am really excited that I get to help people discover better solutions for their lives today.”  BEFORE you check your emails or Facebook, read your affirmations.
  5. End your day right with gratitude and spoken affirmations. “Thank you Lord for the spirit of wisdom and revelation to know you better (Eph. 1:17) today and that I have your peace to guard my heart and mind because I’ve presented my requests to you expecting you to guide my steps tomorrow as I reach out to others.” What do MOST people do right before they go to bed? If you said watch the News, you’d be correct. Isn’t that the most damaging thing anyone could do to set themselves up for their expected future?  The news, with its constant negativity and misfortune, is not where we want our subconscious to be meditating.  It’s the WORST thing to watch before bed. When you go to bed your supercomputer subconscious mind begins to focus on whatever your conscious mind was focused on before you fell asleep. Program that supercomputer with what you actually want in your life.  And make the decision to stop watching mainstream TV… and particularly the late night news.
  6. Earn every shower. When billionaire Richard Branson was asked what his number one tip for productivity is, he replied, “exercise.” A really simple and easy way to get at least a little more exercise is before you get in the shower, earn it. Do some pushups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, whatever to get the blood pumping and circulating. Exercising releases healthy endorphins that actually make you feel better. And if you’re feeling better, you’ll perform better at your next activity or business meeting.
  7. Read a chapter a day of an educational or inspirational book. Yes, start with the Bible, but don’t stop there. Find great authors who inspire you to do better.  This is a great long term approach if you want to improve your life.
  8. Have gratitude for your spouse if you are married or your close friends if you are single. IF you are dating or married to someone, take some time to secretly write 10-20 things that you are grateful for about them. It could be some of their habits, skills, personality traits or activities like you are grateful they have a job. We always want our partners to be more accepting of us. But isn’t it interesting that when WE change our attitudes about them, they do change. You cannot force them to change, but you can change your own energetic attitudes about them. IF you are single and desiring to find a life companion, start having gratitude for your future perfect partner by writing down things that you love about that person you are about to find in your life.
  9. Make the decision today to give up doing the things that undermine your abundant life. Start with giving up complaining about the past. Whether it was something that caused you grief and pain last week or last century, what possible good can come from rehashing the emotional pain you felt in the past?  Get over it. Forgive those who offended you.  They probably have never given you a second thought anyway so why be a slave to the pain they put you through?

The Battle for America’s Soul: Ways to Combat Mind Control

Practical tips for overcoming deception in today's dark world

The Bible has a lot to say about avoiding deception and renewing our minds with the purity of truth and righteousness, which is a right standing with our Creator and Savior.  In today’s world the person who truly wants to follow Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit has a great challenge to sort out the influences in his life that can potentially be very dangerous.  It takes prayerful work and spiritual discernment to make the best choices.

It’s no surprise to most adults in our society that a highly sophisticated culture of so-called “elitists” are manipulating many aspects of public perception.  You can find some helpful notes about modern day mind-control in articles posted at ReclaimYourLegacy.com where we have brought our attention to the key verse in the Bible, warning believers to be highly alerted to the life-threatening dangers of mind-controlling deceptions that can easily draw us astray from the pathway of pure and undefiled faithfulness to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Colossians 2:8 says:

“Beware, lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after

the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ.”

John Thomas, of Health Impact News, has done a superb job of researching this battle for our minds and our bodies. His insights for all of us in today’s world give some reasons to take the warning of Colossians 2:8 much more seriously than many of us might have considered before.  In today’s program I’ll be quoting much from his article titled – “The Battle for America’s Soul: Ways to Combat Mind Control.”  http://healthimpactnews.com/2016/the-battle-for-americas-soul-ways-to-combat-mind-control/

The Bible warns us to beware of mind-controlling influences in society

What are The Lies We Must Battle?

Colossians 2:8 says: “Beware, lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ.”

The beloved apostle John wrote in his first epistle: “We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” (1 John 4:6)

This is why it’s imperative for thoughtful followers of Jesus Christ today to seriously take actions in keeping with the Biblical warning to “prove all things” (1 Thes 5:21).  Don’t just go along with the crowd and use the lame excuse that ‘everybody’s doing it.’

Mind controllers in today’s sophisticated technological society are creating a system of lies that everyone must believe so that the society can function without distraction or rebellion. To do this, mind controllers must create a worldview that causes people to think certain thoughts, with standard feelings about those thoughts, and to behave in predetermined ways that match what they have established as normal. To make their system work, they must also eradicate the Creation worldview that comes from the Bible.

The lies John Thomas describes have been implanted over and again in the minds of several generations of Americans. These lies have been repeated so many times and from so many sources that the majority of people don’t question them. These lies cunningly oppose common sense thinking about basic principles of life, and are turning people against God and the Bible. They teach people to worship man instead of God.

If the mind-controlling programmers reach their goals, the vast majority of society will believe hundreds of lies and adopt a worldview that is perfectly suited for total control over every aspect of human life on Earth.  The most dominant characteristic of their antichrist worldview is that it causes people to unconsciously slip into a kind of passive slumber.  They can no longer wake up enough to discern truth from lies. They just go along with the flow wherever it takes them.

What are The Lies We Must Battle?

Let’s list a number of the lies that are being emphasized by mind controllers in today’s society. There are hundreds of them, but these are just some of the lies that are receiving the most attention from mind controllers.

John Thomas has done a fine job in his Health Impact News article to describe the goals of mind controllers that underlie their lies.  He gives examples of the consequences that naturally flow from their goals.

You might actually already believe some of these lies. Don’t feel bad if you do and don’t fall for the carnal temptation to get defensive.  Prove all things. Consider this as an opportunity to revise your thinking.

There are many lies on this list that many of us probably believed

years ago, mostly because we never took the time to investigate whether our beliefs were supported by truth or simply because we blindly accepted the opinions of other people. Sometimes the opinions of friends, family members, school teachers, the news media, and even pastors and other religious leaders fall right in line with an antichrist belief system and worldview that is actively being advanced by the mind control agenda.

You can probably guess what is the number one lie accepted by society today.

Lie: The Earth is a product of evolution, and God did not create life and does not sustain life on the Earth.

Goal: Worship a fictitious ‘mother earth’ and bow your mind to science as it is popularly defined in mainstream society. Ultimately the goal is to control the evolutionary process through genetic engineering and advancements in science that are yet to be discovered.  That’s because they’ve replaced the Creator God with a worship of science and humanity, just like Paul the apostle says we should expect in Romans chapter one of the Bible.

Consequence: Force people to live in high-density, city-oriented developments where people do not own cars and cannot travel outside their communities unless approved by the government. All healthcare and cures need to be approved by the government.  Dr. David Stewart writes:

“Science has lifted us from the ignorance of the Dark Ages into the understandings we hold today. It has increased our standards of living, lengthened our life spans, and enriched our lives in every way. Music, the arts, our governments, our social customs, our religious beliefs, our educational institutions, our recreations, our modes of travel, our means of communicating, our working, our eating, our sleeping—all aspects of our culture have been transformed by the touch of technology. It is little wonder, then, that we have become conditioned to look to science for the solutions of all our problems and for the answers to life’s questions.

But science, powerful as it is, is a false god. Awed by the spectacular material advancements science has brought us, we have come to expect more of science than it is capable of delivering. Many individuals, not recognizing the limitations of science, stand in expectation of results that will never come. Science does not have all the solutions. It does not have all the answers. It never has and it never will.”

More Info.

When you make science your ‘god’ you have to have an explanation of origins that is limited to science itself – in other words, “naturalism.”  You “can’t allow a divine foot in the door,” as one of the secular authority figures insisted.  That’s the only reason evolution has gained such popularity in our secular culture.  It’s not because it makes sense or has the evidence to prove it.  How many students are ever taught that there are two fundamentally different types of science?  One is “hard science.”  It is determined by true mathematics and demonstrated laws.  It gives us inventions and engineering that works predictably.  The other is “speculative science.”  It depends on imaginative explanations for the past and creative projections into the future.  And just as bizarre as the futuristic dramas of science fiction tend to get, so the naturalistic stories made up for the origin of everything are equally outrageous when you stop to analyze them.

We could list a lot of lies that are accepted by many people around us. Each one of them deserves our deeper study so we can intelligently interact with friends who are accepting the lies.  Here’s just a few of them:

  • Lie: Tolerance is the only ultimate moral value in society.
  • Lie: We shouldn’t make laws to enforce our moral values.
  • Lie: Government (public) education is essential to good childhood development for living in society.
  • Lie: Global climate change is caused by human industry and must be prevented by regulations of human industrial and personal behavior.
  • Lie: Christians shouldn’t get involved in polarizing controversial topics like politics because Jesus said ‘blessed are the peacemakers’ and, after all, God is in control so we shouldn’t try to influence what the government does.
  • Lie: Different religions are all about the same because all good people go to heaven.
  • Lie: the Kingdom of God is only a future state and not anything we can experience now.
  • Lie: Super rich elitist Globalists who believe in some kind of a so called ‘New World Order’ don’t really have the power to control society and what the public believes.

But let’s consider a few hot lies that we can all relate to quite naturally.

Lie: All food is safe to eat and equally nutritious. Eat all things in moderation.

Goal: Everyone must eat highly processed GMO food (that’s made from genetically modified organisms), and it’s peppered with toxic ingredients and pesticide residue such as glyphosate (which is sold as the weed-killer called ‘Roundup’).

Consequence: Everyone will experience diminished health, chronic illness, and brain dysfunction.  This greatly contributes to programming the general public to think they are dependent on synthetic drugs to overcome their mysteriously caused modern health problems.

Think!  Just because scientists have reached sophisticated levels of genetically modifying organisms to achieve certain economically beneficial results for food growers, does that mean we should all jump into the polluted pond and assume we will be okay?

Lie: The chlorinated water that comes to our house is safe to drink.

Goal: Everyone must drink water containing some combination of fluoride, chlorine, lead, pesticide residues, and pharmaceutical drug residues.

Consequence: Everyone will be docile, be learning impaired, and be exposed to daily doses of carcinogens and dozens of pharmaceutical drugs that are not removed by water treatment plants.

More Info.

Almost the entire world is now realizing the dire health consequences of poisoning the water supply with fluoride that’s manufactured as a waste product in the production of certain fertilizers. Most developed nations, including all of Japan and 97% of Western Europe, do not fluoridate their water.  Israel was added to that list in 2014.  When will the West wake up from their unscientific beliefs and embrace the irrefutable evidence that swallowing fluoride daily is of no benefit and actually destructive to human health?  The truth about fluoride and its toxicity levels are rarely publicized on the mainstream media.  After all, how would the public react if they learned they were being deliberately poisoned by their own governments? However, a local news broadcast in Melbourne, Australia had done just that a few years ago, exposing the realities of what fluoride really does to the human body.  You can see it for yourself on YouTube at “Fluoride Truth hits TV in Australia.”

Lie: It is normal to be sick, to feel depressed, and to be weak.

Goal: Everyone should be afflicted with some form of mental and/or physical chronic illness that will last a lifetime.

Consequence: Everyone will consume multiple prescription drugs every day for the rest of their lives and be controlled by the conventional healthcare system.  Try to find ten people over 50 who are not taking one or more prescribed medications (i.e. drugs) that they honestly think is the only dependable way to deal with their health issues.

Lie: The only form of health care that is safe and effective is conventional allopathic medicine. (i.e. disease treatment/management rather than naturalistic/holistic prevention and curing).

An associated lie for Christians is: Believers need to trust their conventional medical doctors because God can’t help us figure out how to trust God and His wisdom to stay healthy and naturopathic doctors aren’t really qualified to know how to help us heal when we’re sick.

Goal: Everyone must participate in the conventional medical care system and use all the drugs and other treatments that conventional hospital doctors recommend, especially the drugs prescribed by psychiatrists.

Consequence: We are to continue supporting the highly dysfunctional and most expensive medical care system in the world, where symptoms are treated and illnesses are rarely cured, while abandoning all forms of alternative approaches, which actually might cure disease.

Lie: Vaccines are completely safe and absolutely necessary to protect the world from plagues of illness.

Goal: All children must receive massive sets of vaccinations from birth and the pattern of multiple vaccinations should extend through the teenage years. Adult vaccinations should be given annually throughout adult life until we die.

Consequence: Everyone will have suppressed immune systems, and be exposed to high levels of aluminum, mercury, polysorbate 80, and viral contaminates, all of which are associated with Alzheimer’s, autism, and numerous other chronic diseases.

Lie: The rights and preferences of children are more important than the rights of their parents.

Goal: State agencies should oversee the raising of every child, force parents to obey the state, and freely remove children from homes whenever they see fit.

Consequence: Parents will not be able to teach their children about God, discipline them when they sin, and help them develop gender appropriate behaviors.

More Info.

Lie: Everything that we are told by our government and the media is true.

Goal: Everyone should believe what they are told without questioning the truthfulness of the message.

Consequence: People will lose the ability to examine the facts and draw independent conclusions.

Lie: There are no moral absolutes, no sins, and no hell.

Goal: Government should set standards of behavior according to what the ruling elite think is best for the greater good of society. Truth is relative.

Consequence: Absolute laws based on Biblical standards of God will be abolished.  More Info.

Lie: The greater good is always more important than the well-being of the individual.

Goal: Take away independent decision making and depend on central decisions made by the state.

Consequence: The state may take lives and property, whenever it determines that such actions are for the greater good.  More Info.

Lie: The state is our refuge and will be our savior whenever there is a crisis.

Goal: People should turn to the state instead of turning to God during times of difficulty.

Consequence: The natural relationship between God and His adopted sons and daughters will be replaced by the authority of government.  More Info.

Lie: It is a sign of insanity to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ and to have faith in the God of the Bible.

Goal: Turn the belief in Jesus, and the desire to live according to the inspired words of God as written in the Bible into a mental illness.

Consequence: Permit involuntary confinement of those who follow Jesus, and permit forced drugging with mind altering psychoactive pharmaceutical drugs.  More Info.

Lie: There is no such thing as mind control programs.

Goal: Make people think that anyone who believes in the existence of mind control programs is mentally deficient, paranoid, or a delusional conspiracy theorist.

Consequence: Those who speak against the mind control agenda will lose jobs, lose their children, and may end up institutionalized or in prison. Execution may be the ultimate response to those who will not surrender their minds and their bodies.

The Mind Control Agenda

Mind controllers are trying to get us to believe these kinds of lies [described in the preceding section] and many more.  Once we believe these kinds of lies and adopt the worldview of the ruling elite, then it will be easy to manipulate us to fulfill their goals. The combined effect of believing their lies and obeying their instructions is to create a docile population who will be glad to participate in centralized government control of every aspect of life.

This is projected to be a New World Order operated under rules established by a tiny minority of extremely wealthy individuals who believe they possess superior qualifications for controlling the welfare of humanity for the greater good.

They envision a world with a small population that is centrally controlled. There will be a single government, a single economy, a single currency, a single language, a single education system, a single healthcare system, and a single religion. The docile citizens of this new world will be trained to worship the Earth and the ruling elite.

Walter Cronkite, the veteran CBS Nightly News man, was able to confirm the plans of the ruling elite, because he was part of their number. In the speech he gave to the World Federalists Association when he received the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award, he told us how it really is. He stated:

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace. To do that, of course, we Americans will have to give up some of our sovereignty….

Time will not wait. Democracy, civilization itself, is at stake. Within the next few years we must change the basic structure of our global community from the present anarchic system of war and ever more destructive weaponry to a new system governed by a democratic U.N. federation…..

Our failure to live up to our obligations to the U.N. is led by a handful of willful senators who choose to pursue their narrow, selfish political objectives at the cost of our nation’s conscience. They pander to and are supported by the Christian Coalition and the rest of the religious right wing. [15]”

Why are Followers of Jesus such a Threat to Mind Controllers?

The Christian Martyrs’ Last Prayer, by Jean-Léon Gérôme (1883). Public Domain.

The followers of Jesus threaten the ruling elite and their plan for a New World Order, because we have the Holy Spirit. We have God given discernment and can see through their schemes.

We also have the written Word of God, the Bible, which clearly condemns everything they are trying to do. In short, we are the greatest danger to the advancement of the New World Order and those who are trying to program everyone to be godless slaves of the ruling elite.

What can we do to Resist the Mind Control Activities of Our Age?

The first step is to realize that we must actively equip ourselves with truth to effectively resist lies by renewing our minds and casting down imaginations and every high sounding thing that stands against the knowledge of God. (2 Cor 10:5).

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)

If you listen to leaders who commend Passivity where will that lead you?  Right into the lap of the enemies of God.  You might temporarily enjoy all kinds of worldly pleasures until the power of the ruling elite has been firmly established. When their dominance of society is complete, then massive persecution of the disciples of Jesus inevitably follows. It happened in Russia and China, didn’t it?

“In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:12-13)

In the continuing discussion on this subject – included in a post on the ReclaimYourLegacy.com website – we will see step-by-step suggestions for those who want to limit the effects of mind control programming on their lives.

If your goal is to be a more productive member of the Kingdom of God, and deepen your faith you will benefit greatly by reviewing this.

  • It will most certainly protect your mind and the minds of the children who are under your care.
  • It will help you live as a Bible-based independent thinker, and help you provide a biblical worldview to young people as they grow up.
  • It will help disciples of Jesus recognize and stand for truth in a world that hates anyone who manages his or her life according to the Bible.

God may permit some of the globalist plans of the ruling elite to happen for a season, but we must not yield our souls to their worldly control. We also should not give in to fear what they might do to our bodies.  Jesus said:

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

They may threaten our lives, but if we are disciples of Jesus, then we should always remember that God is greater than those who persecute us.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

Take Action to stand strong in the Culture War

The Pagan Left has dominated the Culture War in America far too long

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:8).

Did you know that Noah Webster, America’s Schoolmaster, said during our founding era, “…that the man who weakens or destroys the divine authority of the Bible may be accessory to all public disorders that society is doomed to suffer.”

The term “Culture War” has become common in describing contemporary American life and politics.

Is it possible for a Biblically faithful culture to survive in this cultural war that has essentially determined the ways of thinking, living, and behaving in a post Christian society?

   Adapted from “The Culture War” by Dr. Phil Stringer (Florida)  http://www.insectman.us/exodus-mandate-wv/culture-war.htm 

I found some timely points discussed in Dr James Dobson’s book, Children at Risk:

Nothing short of a great Civil War of world views and values rages today throughout North America.  It’s between Biblical traditions and pagan secularism.  The two sides are as polar opposite as light and darkness.  They are totally incompatible.

When the light doesn’t shine on the darkness to expose it, the darkness prevails.  For at least three generations or more, the Christian western culture has retreated from society, allowing influential institutions to be directed by personalities with secular ideals.  Beginning with organized churches, the public and private educational systems have led the advance of allowing Greek-minded enlightenment thinking to marginalize the Biblical Christian wisdom that founded America.

Secularism and paganism permeate every influential part of society: Science, Education, religion, Medicine, Industry, The Marketplace, Entertainment and Journalism.  Unfortunately, most of the soldiers on the traditional Biblical side of the war are AWOL – absent without leave.  Many of them don’t even recognize there’s a war on.  And most of them have no idea what the enemy is doing to effectively anesthetize them and win the prize of this war.  What is the prize?

Children are the prize to the winners of America’s second great Civil War. Those who control what young people are taught and what they experience — what they see, hear, think, and believe – they will determine the future course for this nation.

A Culture War exists when two or more different cultures compete to be the mainstream in a society.

The Bible warns that those who oppose Christianity and Christian culture will deceive people away from their faith and values. Memorize Colossians 2:8.  It says,

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

Take Heed – Flashing Red lights.  Intense Warning.

This passage begins with the strongest possible word of warning: “BEWARE.”  This warning is so serious, it cannot be overstated

The heartbeat of the warning is reflective of the exile that is predicted in Isaiah 5:13 where it says, “My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge.”  There are people who want to take you captive as a slave – a “spoil” of battle – that ultimately ruins your faith, your values, and the doctrines that mold your way of living. These people do not want to just be free to live in personal rebellion against Christian truth. They want to minimize their sense of personal guilt by tempting as many people into their non-Christian lifestyle as possible. This is why they are waging a Culture War against Christian values, against Christian morality, and against America’s historic Christian culture.

THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE CULTURE WAR

It’s hard to persuade adults to change their culture.  That’s why the targets of this war against Christian values are children and teenagers.

The Culture War is fought in many areas in the United States:

  • The American news media reports and evaluates events from a non-Christian (or even anti-Christian) perspective 90% of the time. Believer who listens to it as their source of information are utterly foolish. Hardly anyone among working class people have the time to check out the validity and subtle deceptions that are being promoted.
  • The public school system is full of non-Christian ideas taught as facts to American young people.
  • The entertainment media often provides T.V. programs, movies, and music that promote non-Christian values.
  • In the political arena, many politicians campaign openly against Christian values. Others desperately try to appear to be in some vague, non-committal neutral ground.
  • Many government bureaucrats use local, state, and federal programs to promote non-Christian values or to hinder historic Christian values.

The Culture War shows up in:

  •  national political campaigns,
    • situation comedies,
    • school board meetings,
    • the federal tax code,
    • adoption policies,
    • health care choices and abortion proposals,
    • television and radio talk shows,
    • political primaries,
    • news coverage,
    • foreign policy, and
    • endless other areas of American life.

Despite all the propaganda to the contrary, the Culture War is not something that has been declared by Christians. Most Christians simply want to be left alone with their families and church activities.  Historic Christian values were firmly in place in America until the 60s. Those opposed to Christian values began a stealth war.  Eventually it became an open Culture War.

After three decades of a cultural cold war against Christian values, large numbers of Christians are finally starting to defend their much assaulted way of life. This self-defense has brought a vicious attack upon Christians from those who have been at war with Christian values for decades.

In June, 1994, columnist Cal Thomas wrote that the woman who managed Michael Dukakis’ 1988 presidential campaign [Susan Estrich], accused ‘religious extremists’ of coming out of the closet and beating the system. That used to be called democracy until the pagan left decided that only people who think like they do are entitled to hold office.

Regardless of the misguided accusations, most God-fearing people have awakened to the fact that something has gone dreadfully wrong in America.  The capitalistic west may have won the geo-political Cold War, but western civilization has lost the Culture War.  More people fear guns and drugs in the schools because of that loss.  And yet they get nervous if someone might say a prayer over the public address system.

A warning to the pagan left comes from a CNN-USA Today-Gallup survey, reporting that most Americans prefer a president with strong morals over one who might have compatible political views.

The pagan left smears conservative Christians by equating them with superstitious snake handlers.  They do this because they know they can’t win the argument over the real issues.  They aim the spotlight of some notion of morality to condemn people of faith.  They cannot defend their imposed immorality.  What has that produced?  According to the Census Bureau secular doctrine has produced a culture with: the highest divorce rate in the world, the highest teen pregnancy rate, the most abortions, the highest percentage of children raised in single-parent homes, the highest percentage of violent deaths among the young, and a male homicide rate that is five times greater than any other developed country except Mexico.

Does the pagan left suggest that the imposition of some of the Christian right’s morality would be worse that what they have fostered?  Don’t accept the nonsense that citizens “can’t legislate morality.”  The secularists have been legislating their immorality for decades, and the majority of law-abiding citizens have been letting them get away with murder.

PHILOSOPHY

Colossians 2:8 refers to four tactics that are being used to “spoil” every Christian family in the Secular culture War against Christianity rather than following after Christ. The first tactic is philosophy. The term philosophy makes most people think of a formal class in college, but the word actually refers to the “love of wisdom.” That may sound positive but it deserves a closer look.  If you leave God out of learning then it is empty of truth.  Carnal wisdom is not automatically good. Learning the wrong information is damaging.

Many have the idea that we just need more information.  That’s actually the anti-solution to all our problems.  In the early 1960s, Americans were shocked when the teen pregnancy rate hit two percent. They were told that massive sex education programs could solve this “crisis.” Despite some protest, the American people allowed educational bureaucrats to create huge government programs to teach children information about sexual relationships. Tragically, much of the information communicated came from a non-Christian, non-moral perspective. After 30+ years, billions of dollars, and hundreds of programs, the teen pregnancy rate surpassed 22%. The mere “love of learning” did not solve the problem.  It made it worse.

What is the philosophy that underlies almost all the reasoning of modern education and public discourse today?  Is it a foundation that respects the view of our founders that all men bear the image of their Creator?  Is it a confidence in the beginning of wisdom – the fear of the Lord?

No.  It’s consciously or unconsciously predisposed to believe a Darwinian view of evolutionary naturalism… a worship of Mother Nature rather than a reverence for the Creator God.  They bow to what they have been deceived into believing is scientific reality because they have been duped into thinking that speculative millions-of-years Naturalism, with no Adam and Eve and no just judgment of the Flood of Noah’s time, is ‘reality.’

Our society is filled with examples reflecting a complete lack of common sense. Parents, concerned about the modern scourge of drugs, have tolerated hundreds of new so-called “anti-drug” programs in the schools. Many of these programs teach young people, “It is up to you whether or not you use drugs.” This is the moral equivalent of a program citing statistics about teen violence and then telling teens, “It is up to you whether or not you participate in drive-by shootings.” While some programs, like “Just Say ‘NO’” have actually helped, many drug programs have actually made matters worse.

The same is true with some counseling and therapy programs. When someone gets into trouble today they are automatically referred to counselors for therapy without knowing what they are going to be taught in therapy.

It is interesting to watch “modern” politicians, educators, and entertainers who have been teaching young Americans that there are no absolute values. The same politicians, educators, and entertainers are now decrying the epidemic of teen violence. Yet what are those violent teens doing but living as if there were no absolute values?  Our “modern leaders” have communicated their “philosophy” all too well.

VAIN DECEIT

The message of Colossians 2:8 gives a warning that Christians with righteous values can be “spoiled” by “vain deceit.”  Vain means empty or void.  Deceit is opposite truth.  Vain deceit is a mindset that is Void of truth. Vain deceit is asserting as true that for which you can offer no evidence. You simply assert a principle that men in rebellion against God desperately want to believe is true. You assume that it must be true, you offer no evidence, and you attack anyone who asks questions or requires evidence. You then act as if your principle has been proven, and you expect everyone else to act accordingly. Tragically, many careless Christians cowardly accept the “vain deceit” around them and adjust their thinking accordingly.  It starts with the vain deceit of evolution – naturalism (whether it’s pagan or pawned off as ‘scientific’ of ‘theistic’).

You’ve probably heard many examples of statements based upon “vain deceit” that are common in the United States today.

  • The United States was founded upon principles of secular neutrality.
  • You cannot legislate morality.
  • All cultures are equal.
  • The news media is unbiased and attempts to report what’s true.
  • A fetus is only a mass of tissue in the mother’s womb.
  • Abortion is a Constitutional right.
  • Man is the highest evolved form of an animal.
  • Fossils are scientific evidence for the theory of evolution.
  • Millions of years of time are proven scientific fact and there was no worldwide flood.
  • The government wouldn’t allow the public sale of things that are harmful for us.
  • Homosexuality is genetic.
  • Spanking is child abuse.
  • Sexual activity by unmarried teenagers is inevitable.
  • Christians are all interested in imposing their values on everyone.
  • Preaching against homosexuality is a hate crime.
  • Christianity is oppressive to women.
  • The continued existence of the planet is threatened by American industry.
  • Western conventional allopathic medicine is proven to be the best form of health care.
  • Our national diversity of lifestyles and cultures is what has made us great.
  • Poverty is the root cause of crime.
  • Consuming alcohol until you are drunk is a disease.
  • It does not make any difference whether there is a father in the home or not.
  • It is bigotry to prefer one religion to another.
  • If a food product is in the store it is safe to eat because the FDA is watching out for us.
  • There are no moral absolutes, no universal sins, and no hell.
  • Conspiracy theories, population and mind control programs are all imaginary.
  • Climate and weather manipulation would never be allowed by our government.

Every year, billions of taxpayer dollars are spent on programs based upon these assumptions.  Do the problems get resolved?  No, they only get worse.

TRADITION OF MEN

Colossians 2:8 warns believers that they are threatened with being made a captive of war (“spoiled”) directly as the result of listening to and following the “traditions of men.” Traditions of men are concepts of empty deception (“vain deceit”) that have been repeated so often, and for so long, that those concepts have been absorbed into the popular mindset of an entire culture. The religion of the Pharisees had been spoiled just this way.  Jesus said, “But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9).

Christians must be very careful to scrutinize their thinking and to make sure that the principles by which they live are based on the Scriptures and not on tradition. This is the basis for the process of Christian growth.  It’s called “renewing your mind” (Romans 12:1-2, Ephesians 4:23, Colossians 3:10).

RUDIMENTS OF THE WORLD

In Colossians 2:8, we are warned that evil men will attempt to advance their pursuit of making you a “spoil” of war by following the “rudiments of the world.”  “Rudiments” is a word that refers to basics, essentials, or fundamentals. The very essence of man’s sinful nature is its selfishness. The worldly crowd even refers to those fundamentals of men, based upon the selfishness of man’s sinful nature. When anyone appeals to the inherent selfishness of men as the basis for electing a politician, approving a policy, or promoting wickedness, they are appealing to the rudiments of the world.

So, do modern leaders appeal to the moral self-discipline that the Word of God and the Sprit of God can produce in the hearts of men?  No, most modern leaders appeal to the worst in man. As a result, our culture is typically characterized by rebellion against God, and by all the human tragedy that results from this rebellion.

NOT AFTER CHRIST

The last phrase of Colossians 2:8 gives us a divine standard.  It enables us to discern the attempts of worldly men to spoil the lives of Christians. “And not after Christ” is the gold-standard we can hold up to expose the vain philosophies of men, the vain deceit of the human heart, and the empty traditions of men. The standard of Christ-centered thinking is what separates us from the “rudiments of the world.”

Christians today must learn Biblical discernment.  We must be careful, Biblical, and Christ-centered in our thinking. We must learn to ask: “Where did this idea come from?”  We must learn to be on guard against those that would make us the spoil of their war against God.  It’s their faith, morals, and doctrine that are all exposed by the light of Christ if we’ll let it shine.

The Greatest Threat
The single greatest threat to Christian civilization has proved to be secular humanist, state-controlled, education. What is often called education today is more accurately indoctrination. Instead of teaching children how to think – critically – all too many schools today are teaching children what to think. Politically correct brain-washing in state schools is at the root of much of the wickedness prevalent throughout our societies today. People vote as they do because of how they have been educated, entertained and informed (or misinformed) by the news media.

Our Priority
Therefore, our greatest focus needs to be on making disciples of all nations, teaching obedience to all things that the Lord has commanded.  That is the recipe for comprehensively fulfilling the Great Commission, thus influencing education, the entertainment industry and the news media.

Strategic Focus
Home Education is the single most strategic step any family can take. Protecting your family from Hollywood‘s vile poison might mean throwing out the TV.  Keeping our children from being indoctrinated in secular humanist government schools is a tremendous step forward.  Providing Bible-based, Christ-centered textbooks for home educators is most strategic. Supporting and producing alternative God-honoring films, music, books and magazines is powerful. Providing alternative sources of information through Desk Top Publishing, the Internet, social media and community Christian radio stations is life-changing. Every Christian needs to seriously find his part in these many possibilities.  Whatever you do, don’t rely on government schools to train your child to trust God.  We are in a war for the hearts, minds, and souls of the precious children of America.  Not one military leader who is not insane would send his young recruits to be trained (and mentally maimed) in the boot-camp of the enemy.  Why are so many Christian families continuing to do that with their own children?

Recognize the Tactics of the Enemy
The enemy is using the tactics of: Confuse, Divide and Conquer and Corrupt and Conquer. We are at war! The Frankfurt School of Communism advocated:

destroying “all ties to blood, soil, mother, father and religion.” They determined that the best way to destroy Christianity was through state education and by promoting sexual deviancy. The promotion of foul language, pornography and perversion are vital tools to overturn every practice of Christianity – to adulterate marriage, break up families, encourage primitivism and encourage the animalistic urges of human depravity.

The Enlightenment philosophers Jean Jacque Rousseau and Voltaire prepared the way for the French Revolution by attacking Christian civilization and promoting the myth of the noble savage.  Is that what has dominated our government schools?

The communist agenda is to bring division between rich and poor, male and female, young and old, black and white, employer and employee, promoting an anti-white, anti-western, anti-male, culture war of racial politics, breaking down every relationship essential for the maintenance of Christian civilization. The Distortion of Art celebrates ugliness, cruelty and rebellion. What else are the anti-Christian war lords stirring up?

The Islamic invasion is one of the tools being used to undermine the demographic integrity of nations.  It’s already seen in the once Christian nations of Egypt, Byzantine (now Turkey) and Sudan (Cush).

Demographics is Destiny
To breed the Europeans into extinction is a primary goal of the New World Order.  They promote abortion, sterilization, heavy taxation, and force mothers into the workplace in the West.  Importing millions of Muslims and other welfare addicts who will swamp the demographically declined West, is a publicly stated goal of those advocating the extinction of Christianity in Europe and North America.

The Failure of Most Churches
All of this has happened as a result of the failure of the Church to be salt and light.  Failing to carry out the Great Commission results from the failure to teach obedience to all that the Lord has commanded.  He prescribed the way to make disciples of all nations. Does it matter what you believe?  If your belief system is flawed with a defeatist escapism that doesn’t take responsibility for the assignment given to the first leaders of Christ’s church, can we blame our failure on the leftists?  They’ve hijacked whole nations filled with hollow churches of irrelevant and ineffective men and women?

Re-evaluate Everything Biblically
We need to enlarge our vision, build Biblical unity amongst those who hold to the Deity of Christ and the inerrancy of Scripture.  There is a tremendous need for repentance, conviction, contrition, confession and conversion. We need to bring holiness back into the home.

We need to be on our guard to divisiveness among fellow Bible-believing Christians. We need to beware of paralysis by analysis. Faith must lead to action. We have all been indoctrinated and deceived, to a great extent, by the news media, entertainment industry and secular humanist state-controlled schools.

We all need to re-think everything that we’ve assumed, in the light of Scripture and clear facts. Where our views have been influenced by God-hating, blaspheming Hollywood, we need to rediscover reliable sources, eye witnesses and Scripture to ascertain what is real and what is not. Satan is deceiving the nations. Most Christians are distracted and deceived.

Offensive Christian Living
We need to engage with a plan personally.  Encourage fellow believers in your church community to network together.  Include personal plans for one-on-one Evangelism, participate in local activities where you can meet people or start an Evangelism Explosion program.  Look into the Way of the Master.  Thank God for all the good Home Education materials available.  Start praying for the persecuted Church.  Join or start a local prayer meeting and Bible study.  Work for Reformation and pray for Revival worldwide.

A Vision of Victory
Encourage or ignore those who say that there is no hope.  They’ve given in to an un-Biblical pessimism.

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Greater is He Who is in us than he who is in the world. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus Who loved us.

Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

The day will come when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

We need to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.

God Judges Nations
It is possible that we are living in an age of judgment, when God will bring down the wicked nations that are at this time rejecting God’s Law, promoting perversion and murdering babies. We need to take note of what Augustine wrote in The City of God. When the Roman Empire began to fall, many were horrified and saw this as the end of their world. Augustine put things into perspective, pointing out that there are cities that men build and there is a Kingdom which God is building. Men build men’s cities and men destroy men’s cities. But God is building a Kingdom which can never be destroyed.

Scenarios That Could Change the World
Yes, God could allow an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) nuclear device to knock out the technology on which our modern society so heavily depends. Even a sun spot surge could trigger EMP destruction of existing technology. This would be catastrophic to those unprepared to survive without modern technology.  Everyone’s circumstance is different.  That’s why each of us needs to be praying constantly for God’s insight and direction.  Read Psalm 32.  Find out how you can claim the promise of God in verse 8: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”  God wants you close enough so you can hear His voice.

Preparedness
The Swiss Military has a plan for surviving an EMP knocking out all telecommunications in Europe. If some rogue state would do that, the Swiss have a plan of de-centralization, local initiative and preparedness, utilizing pre-digital technology to maintain order and protection of their communities. We must do all that we can and we must trust God to do all that we cannot. God will not do our duties. We cannot do God’s job! Nehemiah provides a Biblical model of involving all the men to be vigilant, organized, armed and trained. It is essential to plan and prepare for family, church, and community protection.

Modern day mind-control is why Believers must BEWARE

The sad reality of how non-discerning people are led astray

Have you ever wondered why there is such a vicious and never-ending war being waged against God-made non-toxic food, wholesome natural supplements, and alternative forms of healthcare and disease prevention? Have you ever wondered why an equally intense war is directed against those who profess faith in Jesus Christ?

The Bible clearly warns us to beware of mind-controlling influences in society.

Colossians 2:8 says:

“Beware, lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ.”

In the last hundred years the craft of deception has gotten more subtle and sophisticated because of the manipulative science of psychology.  John Thomas, of Health Impact News, has done a superb job of researching this battle for our minds and our bodies. Wait till you see what he has found as I unpack some of his insights for you today.  http://healthimpactnews.com/2016/mk-ultra-and-modern-day-mind-control-the-battle-for-americas-soul/

The Battle for Our Minds and Our Bodies Part 1, by John P. Thomas, Health Impact News

Have you ever wondered why believers who attempt to live their lives according to the words of Jesus and His apostles as recorded in the Bible are constantly ridiculed and called intolerant bigots, hate mongers, stupid, gullible, paranoid, arrogant, and extremists – the scourge of society?  Have you ever wondered why those same kinds of derogatory words are applied to people who object to mandatory vaccination and those who insist on knowing what is in the food we eat?

Have you ever wondered why those who promote worldwide mandatory vaccination, unlimited use of GMO agriculture, and claim that the U.S. medical care system is the best in the world are always given center stage in any media conversation, while their opponents are made to look like fools?

Mind Control in America

There is a battle going on for the control of our minds and our bodies. It is being directed against those who insist upon their rights to eat the food of their choice, to use the healthcare of their choice, and to believe in God, the Creator of the Universe.

Let’s briefly review the history of the mind control programs that extend back more than a hundred years.  Let’s examine the set of lies that mind control programmers are systematically imbedding into children and adults to establish a New World Order.  Our freedom to choose what we eat, our freedom to make independent health care choices, and our freedom to be disciples of Jesus Christ are all under constant public attack.

As we examine the lies and identify the goals connected with the lies, consider the consequences for those who believe in Jesus Christ.

This is not only about doing battle with forces of darkness that operate mind control programs.  For now, let’s simply consider what we can do to protect ourselves and our families from the power of real enemy activities. The purpose is protecting your mind, your body, and your faith.

The Origin of 20th Century Mind Control Programs

One of the earliest mind control and propaganda experts was Edward Bernays. He was the nephew of Sigmund Freud who is considered to be the father of modern psychology. He used psychological principles to intentionally manipulate people to buy products.  He said:

“In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons… It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

During the administration of President Woodrow Wilson he helped promote the idea that U.S. efforts in World War I were intended to bring democracy to Europe. On the surface, his business was public relations, but underneath the surface, Bernays’ business was propaganda and mind control.

The writings of Bernays’ were extensively used in the 1920s by Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda for the German Third Reich, to elevate Hitler to power. [1, 2]

The Nazis in Germany relied on an extensive program of mind control to get the public to accept Hitler’s plan to fund the war effort. The propaganda machine convinced people that it was reasonable and desirable to exterminate disabled children and adults, and to exterminate pastors who objected to what Hitler was doing. Step by step, the mind control program unfolded until the population became willing to exterminate Jews, Gypsies, Poles, and other ethnic groups who had been vilified as the cause of Germany’s economic troubles.

Germany’s Mind Control Program Moved to the United States

After Germany was defeated, the United States government became concerned that the rich storehouse of German scientists might be taken to Russia where they would develop technology that could be used against the United States. To avoid this potential problem, hundreds of German scientists were brought to the United States in a program called Project Paper Clip. [3]

In addition to the hundreds of Nazi scientists with aerospace and weapons expertise, hundreds of mind control specialists were integrated into the scientific and university communities throughout the United States. These mind control specialists helped reshape the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and developed the “MK Ultra” program. [4]  You can research that yourself online… very interesting.

The CIA MK Ultra Program

Experimentation on adults and children was carried out by the MK Ultra program to see how the human mind could be broken into parts and reprogrammed to commit immoral acts and crimes without conscious memory of the events. The MK Ultra program was managed by the CIA and by secret military intelligence programs.

MK Ultra scientists used LSD and other mind-altering drugs, electroshock therapy, sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, physical torture with intense pain, sexual shaming, sexual mutilation, and rape to destroy the original personality and to create a compartmentalized set of identities in the same person that could perform tasks and then be unaware of what they had done. People who were broken in this way were turned into sex slaves for the ruling elite, into couriers for illegal drugs, and into assassins. [5, 6, 7]

Children were also victimized by MK Ultra operatives and were raised under direct control of the MK Ultra system and Satanists. [8] The handlers of both children and adults maintained watch over them and used them for decades. Victims were expendable — if their programming failed and they started to remember things, then they would be killed to prevent them from sharing what they knew.

The U.S. government would like us to believe that the several decades long period of mind control research ended when the U.S. senate instructed the CIA to disband MK Ultra in 1977. [9] However, the trafficking of children into mind control programs did not end, it just went further underground. Drug companies are now continuing the MK Ultra program by their experimentation on children and adults. They are developing the exact kinds of drugs that CIA officials described in a 1955 wish list, which can be used to control how we think and how we remember. [10]

Experimentation on the brains of adults made another leap forward into public respectability in 2013 when President Obama announced the creation of his 12 year BRAIN Initiative to decode the functioning of the human brain. It will establish technology to control brain functioning at many different levels. [11] The emphasis on controlling the minds of individuals is being paired with an even larger program of mind control, which has the goal of controlling the minds of everyone in America to create a kind of New World Order. [12]

Other Forms of Mind Control Used to Control the Population

MK Ultra mind control is horrible.   Yet there is another form of mind control that is part of every aspect of modern life. It is equally destructive to human life. It enslaves people by causing them to believe lies promoted by government, corporations, and the media. This kind of mind control is made possible by participating in certain activities and consuming certain products, which numb the senses, dull the thinking, and paralyze the will. [13]

Mind control programs that are being directed toward the entire population don’t have publically known names, such as MK Ultra, Monarch, or Artichoke, but they are just as powerful. They destroy free and independent thinking. They are designed to undermine the Christian worldview and to replace it with one that serves a small group of highly influential members of the ruling elite. Their mind control techniques are designed to make people doubt the Bible, forget God, deny the true causes of chronic illness in America, and to distrust all forms of healthcare except the drugs and other treatments provided by conventional allopathic physicians.

Walter Cronkite Reveals that the Mainstream Media is Manipulated by “Persons Far Outside Our Control”

I remember my grandmother telling me about how she interacted with the CBS evening news anchor Walter Cronkite from her living room. For those who do not know of Walter Cronkite, he was one of the most famous TV journalists and perhaps one of the most trusted men in America in the 1960s and 1970s. He read the news on the CBS TV network each evening Monday through Friday from 1962 through 1981.

In the 1960s, Walter Cronkite sat behind a desk and read the news from sheets of paper, while the sound of a teletype machine clattered in the background. A teletype machine was like a typewriter that printed news stories that were being sent to the news desk from the Associated Press and other news outlets.

When Walter Cronkite came to the end of the news show, he would dramatically deliver his signature sign-off statement followed by the date. He would say, “And that’s the way it is, Friday, January first, 1963.” This would be followed by a several second closing ceremony. He would silently close the show by pensively looking down at the sheets of paper that he had just read as he organized them into a neat pile while the teletype machine clattered in the background. The show was over when he finished shuffling his papers.

Every time John Thomas’ grandmother would hear Walter say “And that’s the way it is,” she would talk right back to him and say, “And that’s the way you say it is.” She told John one time that she wasn’t sure why she said it, but she just didn’t like anyone telling her that this is the way it is.

John’s grandmother was right. This is what Walter Cronkite wrote in the introduction to the 1996 book Censored – The News That Didn’t Make the News- And Why, by Carl Jensen. Walter Cronkite wrote:

“A handful of us determine what will be on the evening news broadcasts, or, for that matter, in the New York Times or Washington Post or Wall Street Journal…. Indeed it is a handful of us with this awesome power… a strongly editorial power.

…we must decide which news items out of hundreds available we are going to expose that day. And those [news stories] available to us already have been culled and re-culled by persons far outside our control. [14]”

It’s No Longer just the News Media Telling us, “That’s the Way It is”

Today, it’s not just national news shows that are telling us the way it is, but every information source in our society. It is our education system, mainstream media sources, print journalism, films, music, and our government. There is more misinformation and outright lies being communicated than there is truth.

The lies and disinformation that are being planted into the minds of Americans are enhanced when we consume the standard American diet, fluoridated water, use vaccines, use psycho-active pharmaceutical drugs, use statin drugs, and allow ourselves to be exposed to immune system suppressing substances such as those contained in glyphosate-laden food, genetically modified food, and food containing antibiotics, preservatives, pesticides, and numerous other additives. When we add in excitotoxins and endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in flavor enhancers, artificial fragrances, and chemicals from plastic packaging materials, a long-term pattern of physical imbalance, lethargy, apathy, confusion and disorientation is created.

In the beginning, these effects may be subtle, but over time they have a profound effect on our ability to think clearly. Once the human brain is compromised through the combined effects of all these elements, people become highly susceptible to believing all manner of lies. Current day mind control programs constantly bombard the U.S. population with hundreds of lies about every aspect of life to create a worldview that matches the beliefs of those who are trying to program our minds.

These mind control programs occupy center stage in every aspect of our society. Our minds and our bodies are under constant attack, so that we can become virtual slaves to certain groups of people who I will simply call the ruling elite. As modern slaves, we are to obey the ruling elite by submitting to their plans, which are promoted by corporations and government agencies, which always claim to have our best interests at heart.

The Grand Vision of Mind Controllers

The ruling elite and their mind-controllers are trying to program us to only think in authorized patterns and to not question why things are happening. We are to accept official news reports and to just go along with the flow. We are to become walking zombies, who are only capable of smiling, nodding our heads, and doing what we are told even when our actions are in direct conflict with biblical teaching.

The New World Order that they are trying to create would be a Godless society. Principles of eugenics and genetic engineering would be used to create generations of people who are perfectly suited for the work they are assigned. There will be no family structure to distract us from participating in the grand social plan, because children would be raised and educated in state institutions to serve the needs of the ruling elite and the society that they envision.

The Extent of Mind Control Programming: Everyone is Affected

We can’t avoid being exposed to mind-control activities, but we can learn to recognize the techniques that are used and resist their influence.

Those who recognize mind-control activities and consciously resist them will be vilified as enemies of society. Even today, people who ask challenging questions and who object to the encouragement of immoral activities are portrayed by the media as ignorant fools who are opposing the greater good. They stand in direct opposition to the image of the greater good that mind controllers are trying to paint in the minds of Americans.

Mind control programmers have zero tolerance for people who want to maintain independent thinking on issues like healthcare, food, nutrition and belief in the God of the Bible.

Government as Parents – Child Kidnapping and Trafficking Now the Norm

There are serious dangers for those who are unaware of modern mind control programs. The greatest risks are for our children who are being brainwashed to accept government power as a substitute for parental authority.

In fact, a major thrust of modern mind control programming is being implemented by the child welfare system under state governments. Programs of child protective services (CPS) in every U.S. state are working hard to diminish and destroy the role of parents in families, and to substitute the power of the state for the parents’ God given role in the family. Those who do not fully cooperate with the mind control programmers risk having their children seized by the CPS system and having them put into the lucrative foster care system to eventually be adopted by “approved parents.” Refusing state-approved medical care and daring to disagree with a licensed physician is one of the most common ways parents are losing their children to the State today, and it is probably far more common than most realize.

(See: Medical Kidnapping: A Threat to Every Family in America Today)

Those who resist mind controllers, in this case, CPS, are seen as enemies of the state. Bible believing followers of Jesus are especially seen as enemies, especially when they eat clean and wholesome food, home-school their children, and refuse to submit their bodies and the bodies of their children to vaccination and give them over to the dictates of conventional medical care.

Fortunately, there are definite steps that you can take to preserve your freedoms and protect yourself and your family. These steps are discussed in John Thomas’ final article on the Health Impact News website.  At this point, it will be important to understand the battle and to be aware of what mind control programmers want us to believe and how they want us to act.

The Mind Control Battleground: A Spiritual Battle

This war has been growing in intensity for more than a hundred years and is now reaching an ear shattering shriek. If left unchecked, it will soon be a crime to speak the name Jesus and to tell our children about God. It will be a crime to grow our own food. It will be illegal to refuse to eat food that contains GMOs, glyphosate and other pesticides; and to reject food containing toxic ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, soy oil, and numerous chemical additives. It will soon be a crime to visit a naturopath, homeopath, Chinese medical practitioner or use the remedies they recommend. It could soon be a criminal act to homeschool children or attend a church that is not licensed by the state.

Mind controllers are creating a system of lies that everyone must believe so that the society can function without distraction or rebellion. To do this, mind controllers must create a worldview that will cause people to think certain thoughts, to have a standard set of feelings about those thoughts, and to behave in a predetermined manner that matches the norms they have established. To make their system work, they must also eradicate the Creation worldview that comes from the Bible.

The lies that John describes have been implanted over and over again in the minds of multiple generations of Americans. These lies have been repeated so many times and from so many sources that the majority of people don’t question them. These lies cunningly oppose common sense thinking about basic principles of life, and are turning people against God and the Bible. They teach people to worship man instead of God.

Realize that the goal of the devil is to lead people to unconsciously slip into a kind of passive slumber in which they can no longer wake up enough to discern truth from lies. They just go along with the flow wherever it takes them.

  • Always remember as believers in Jesus who choose to live by the Word of God that we have an advocate who will help us wake up from our slumber. The Holy Spirit, gives us discernment to judge between truth and lies. If you follow Jesus, don’t underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit who dwells in you. Don’t be shy about asking God to assist you through His Holy Spirit.

“We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.” (1 John 4:13)

Ask God privately and fervently for your own personal discernment to see through deceptions that have captivated your mind and emotions.

“Yes, if you cry out for discernment, ​​And lift up your voice for understanding, ​​If you seek her (discernment) as silver, ​​And search for her as for hidden treasures; ​​Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, ​​And find the knowledge of God.”  Proverbs 2:3-5

Let Truth Guide Your Legacy Action Plan

How does truth fit into our deliberate action plan to reclaim our legacy?  I believe that we live in a generation that is struggling to rediscover the timeless reality that we all pass on a legacy.  The only real legacy we have to pass on to our children is a legacy of truth: Truth about life; truth about God; truth that we invest into their future to give them hope.

Rather than just living day to day for life’s fleeting pleasures, a legacy-minded man or woman deliberately considers life as a gift not to be wasted.  Don’t you think that the really important things of life are deliberately developed and ‘invested’ in the light of a multi-generational perspective?  This is what seems to be missing so often today.  If you are investing for a future dividend, it has to be invested beyond your own limited vision of what you can do now and in the near future.  It’s going to be invested in light of the next generation.

Looking at the culture of our generation, everywhere I turn I see dysfunction and distortion in all the areas of our legacy.  When we think of the foundational things that constitute our legacy, what is more foundational than truth?  This is basic to our character.  But truth is thought by many to be ambiguous, variable or even irrelevant. So I’ll ask the timeless question: What is truth? (more…)

Imagine a Christmas that’s even better than Santa Claus!

by Dennis Petersen

I wanted to write a personal little Christmas letter to all four of my dear kids and 10 grandkids.

Would you agree that Christmas ought to be far more exciting than the ‘tinsel-town’ fluff that’s typically merchandized so heavily in our desensitized, fast-paced society?

I wanted my own kids to get this clearly so they would help my grandkids to personally know the One for whom the original Santa Claus sacrificed his life… but you all might like to use it yourselves in sharing this Christmas season in a life-changing way. You could even gather your little ones around you to read this short review of how we got some of our Christmas traditions.

Today’s Western world is so monopolized by highly marketed big business and the secularized ‘lame-stream’ media that it’s completely understandable how the true origins of Christmas and many of its colorful traditions have been stolen and hijacked. (more…)

Thanksgiving to our Maker

The Fear of God = Trust in God’s Complete Word

There’s probably no better way to realign our hearts and attitudes in our perverse generation than to enter God’s presence with thanksgiving on our lips.

Why should we all give thanks to God?

Psalm 95:2 tells us: “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving…”  But why?
