I agree with about 95% of the speculative thoughts of one of my favorite bloggers Danny Jeffrey. For a long time I have bucked the Conservative trend that America should stay out of Syria. I had believed that Chemical Weapons was indeed a threat to our National Security. Syria has been and still is a rogue nation that is a client of Iran and a conduit to Shi’ite Islamic terrorists controlling Lebanon – i.e. Hezbollah.
I believed an attack to remove Assad, using the Chemical Weapon pretense, as a good goal to further encircle and mess up Iran’s Shi’ite alliances that desire to control the Middle East Gulf nations.
Upon further consideration my distrust of Obama has led me to join my fellow Conservatives in demanding we stay out of Syria. If peace-at-all-costs Obama wants to use military force in Syria then there is something up. This is where Danny Jeffrey’s line of thinking has finally pushed me into the STAY-OUT-OF-SYRIA camp.
Apart from the reasons that Danny Jeffrey has presented over the years I have to say Islam definitely is the product of its founding prophet Mohammed. Islam is a cult of violence that is spread viciously until whole non-Muslim cultures are forced to submit to Islam. Sharia Law makes Islamic power simply too difficult for a non-Muslim culture to perpetuate where Muslims possess the power to rule. And that rule is vicious with one goal in mind; i.e. to transform the minds and souls of a non-Muslim culture into an Islamic culture. The alternative for not transforming is a perpetual life of second class misery. Only the most dedicated non-Muslims retain their religious heritage under such circumstances. AND even in retaining a religious heritage that moved the one-time majority to the minority culture, those people eventually conform to the public rules of Islam such as no public worship, no proselytizing of their faith, no criticizing of Islamic culture compared to non-Muslim beliefs as well as submitting to every subservient status that ensures Islamic Supremacism.
Yeah, Danny does not touch too much on Islam as a culture of a bunch of little antichrist Islamic Supremacist people ready to execute a bloodbath for any contrivance against Islam. Danny focuses on the political aspects of a Soros-Obama agenda to transform the world into the delusion of a Marxist-Socialist paradise in which all religion and morality is submitted to a State defined Secular Humanist morality. Danny has convinced me. The Soros-Obama gang use Islamic doctrine to destroy Christian Morality that has been the foundation that has made Western Culture and especially America exceptional.
You have to notice that the more and more that Christianity has been tossed into irrelevance in Europe the more Socialistic principles, Secular Humanism and State-defined Liberty has transformed the moral landscape of the once mighty Christian Europe. Secularist concepts of morality battles Christianity from the Left while protecting Islamic Radicalism which picks up the pieces of lost Christian morality in Europe. The problem about Islamic morality is its demand of medieval enforcement to conform or else face the prescribed extremely harsh punishment.
In the Garden of Eden God gave Adam and Eve were given a choice of faithfulness or to eat the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve believed the devil’s temptation that eating the forbidden fruit would make them just as God Almighty knowing both Good and Evil. Typically of deceived humanity, Adam and Eve only listened to that which was perceived as self-aggrandized power and having deaf ears to the reality the fruit would also bring the knowledge of Evil. The Soros-Obama agenda is working to create the same circumstances in the USA attempting relegate the Light of Christianity into submerged darkness which is man-created – actually in a spiritual sense the Satanic agenda. Ever since God Almighty gave Lucifer the boot from Heaven along with 1/3 of Lucifer’s deceived Angels the slew-foot agenda was to dethrone the Creator.
George Soros and Barack Obama are the unwitting (or more nefariously perhaps witting) dupes of Lucifer-turned-Satan ultimate agenda. Satan is self-deceived that there can be a victory over God. Soros and Obama are a part of that delusive agenda of darkness wittingly or unwittingly.
Yeah I know the spiritual side of a future chaos is often not mentioned when Conspiracy dudes talk of economic collapse and a New World Order. Nevertheless, that is also a part of my world view.
Check out this quote from a Danny Jeffrey post entitled, “Spreading Terror Near and Far”:
Some tell us that our country is on the verge of collapse. I disagree. It has already collapsed, caved in upon itself, and is no more than fallen rubble. A nation’s collapse need not wait for economic ruin, military invasion, or civil war to begin. A great nation is finished when its people forsake their morality as ours have already done. When they follow blindly, choose to consume while not producing, and feed on hatred, then they as a people, are no more.
Danny Jeffrey is a modern Jeremiah warning that bad times are coming soon and the warning is now. I sure wish Danny – the 21st Jeremiah – would also show there is a redemption for lost people who blindly chose to follow the delusion. When chaos overtakes illusion, reality often turns the miserable to seek God. Jeremiah shared God’s Word that repentance would restore the Jewish nation. The paradigm is just as valid for Christians of faith.
Turning from God brings disaster. Check out God’s Mercy when people turn back to God:
31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
31 ‘For this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My fury from the day that they built it, even to this day; so I will remove it from before My face 32 because of all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger—they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 33 And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not listened to receive instruction. 34 But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it. 35 And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’
36 “Now therefore, thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, ‘It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence’: 37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. 38 They shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. 41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’
14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah:
15 ‘In those days and at that time
I will cause to grow up to David
A Branch of righteousness;
He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
16 In those days Judah will be saved,
And Jerusalem will dwell safely.
And this is the name by which she will be called:
Really you should read the whole chapters of Jeremiah 31-33. You get a picture of a culture descending into immorality and then how misery returns people back to God who then dispenses Mercy rather than more Justice with a Promise of a better covenant. Can you say Jesus Christ the Son of God, Redeemer and Savior?
Now if Danny Jeffrey’s Jeremiah predictions rings true for Americans experiencing misery via the loss of the world’s greatest Constitution providing for a nation of laws rather than for a nation ruled by legal fiat. Then check this out:
21 1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,[b] “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done![c] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,[e] abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me[f] and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g] 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h] Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved[c] shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.[d] 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.[e]
22 1 And he showed me a pure[a] river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 21: 1-11; 22-26; 22: 1-5 NKJV)
You need to know Jesus wins. God’s Will is no longer tedious to follow because the full Redemption of spirit, soul and body imprints God in our very nature. Soros loses. Obama loses. Islam loses. Now if you have not read “Spreading Terror Near and Far” yet, then you should! In the end God wins; however the Danny Jeffrey Jeremiad brings a little clarity that too many people have their head in the sand ignoring the seasons and the times.
This one of the best essays I have ever read from Ari Bussel. Because of this here is a bit of information about Bussel that I have not updated in some time. As far as I know Bussel’s main project is writing for his website Post Cards from America – Post Cards from Israel. The website has a co-writer in Norma Zager.
Here is a bio-blip on Bussel and Zager from News Blaze:
In the series “Postcards from Israel,” Ari Bussel and Norma Zager invite readers throughout the world to join them as they present reports from Israel as seen by two sets of eyes: Bussel’s on the ground, Zager’s counter-point from home. Israel and the United States are inter-related – the two countries we hold dearest to our hearts – and so is this “point – counter-point” presentation that has, since 2008, become part of our lives.
From the writings of Bussel and Zager I have posted in the past it is apparent they are passionate for Israel. The point/counter-point thing in my opinion is a very thin line because both are so pro-Israel and both are Jews. I guess if I knew more about their public personas I might be able to distinguish some differences.
Below is a Bussel post sent to SlantRight.com that utilizes the moral/spiritual standards of Jews living in Israel as perhaps a potential reason for Israel’s demise. Bussel writes of a strong Israeli economy and military; however he surmises that political and economic corruption is rampant inside Israel. He touches on the “haves” and “have-nots” as well as secular Jews vs. religious Jews. Bussel compares Israel current inner state of existence to that of Israel’s past which led to the downfall of Israel, the divided Kingdoms of Israel and Judah and the Roman executed Diaspora of Jews in the first century AD.
This essay is powerful and thought provoking to the Jew first and to the Gentile: “Brotherly Love & Israel’s Redemption”.
