I believe first and foremost in the power, righteousness and worthiness of God – the Great I Am- to be worshipped.
Yes, worshipped. Worship goes against the grain of the American spirit, which is why I believe we are so easily tempted to reject the notion of God. We rebelled against worship when we refused to recognize the Pope and the King of England as our kings. Why? Because God created every man equal and hence, no man deserved worship. Only God did. When America needed help to survive our original pilgrimage to this land, we worshipped Him. When America needed God to help them achieve victory over our foreign enemies, we worshipped Him. But now that America is the most powerful country in the world, like so many spoiled children, we assume we did it all on our own. By rejecting the worthiness of God to be worshipped and loved, we lose the very Strength that brought us to greatness.
I believe that Jesus is the son of God.
That Jesus allowed himself to be killed- for our sake. Why? I think Jesus needed to step in between Man & God because God could not stand us & our sin any longer. Mankind had failed the original tests of obedience (the Tree of Life & The Ten Commandments)- the power of Satan was too great for him. God, in disgust, killed us all except one favored family. He promised not to destroy again, but I think He wanted to after a while. I think Jesus stepped in and made a deal with God. He proposed that man should not be judged for his actions- but only for his love & faith in God. The new test would be a simple one: simply accept Jesus as the only way to God, and thus acknowledge that God IS God, and Man would be saved from annihilation. Faith and love in and of God would be enough. God would remove Satan at a given time and thus, all further temptation and Man would be one with God again.
While the above is my own speculation, the evidence for Jesus & God in Bible prophecy is overwhelming. And yet, people will not even look at it. They wish to remain ignorant in the hopes of innocence. Like Percy Grimm in Faulkner’s “Light of August” , people who refuse to evaluate the morality of their own actions are still guilty of the crimes they commit. There is no such thing as, “I didn’t know. I was just following orders- I was just attending to my business.”
I believe that he Holy Spirit is real.
I believe the Holy Spirit is the ability to know right from wrong. It is absolutely inherent in every single human being. We don’t need a judge and jury to know whether or not we did right. Or wrong. We know. Those who listen faithfully to this God-given ‘morality gauge’ become better and better at it. That being said, there are those who hate the Holy Spirit and attempt to reject it as it makes them extremely uncomfortable. They hate that guilty feeling inside when they have done something rotten. So, they mock it and use words to discredit it to others. They need not only to rid this inner voice from themselves, but from others as well. Because if others still listened to their inner voices, then they would know and see the guilty for what they are. I can see why it is a unforgiveable sin in the Bible to curse the Holy Spirit.
I believe that all people are created equal.
Our nation is based on the God-given equality of all people. What America is forgetting is the ‘God-given’ part. But without that part, the ‘equality part’ holds no validity. If we are not equal because each of our souls (the most essential & important part) was created by God, then why should we be considered equal in any way? Why should any man agree to equality? It would not only be incorrect, but illogical. Some men are more intelligent. That is not equal. Some men are stronger. That is not equal. Some are born richer. That is not equal. Some are more determined, more analytical, more ruthless, more connected, more glib, more charming and more handsome. None of these are equal. Equality simply doesn’t exist unless you equate us all under the concept of our souls, created equal under God. And even if we all agree to our legal equality, with no evidence to prove it so, to whom do we appeal when the inevitable few break the established ‘rule’ of equality? Especially when the offenders have just proven their superiority by beating the rest of us into the ground with armies & the police? There is no answer to this and it leaves the door open to opportunism and tyranny. By denying God’s existence, we decimate all notions of equality among men.
I believe in the prophesy of the Bible: The wicked will try to dominate the world.
Even the Bible talks of the ‘saints’ being temporarily delivered into the hands of evil for ‘a time, a time and half a time’. They are hungry, not merely for riches (they already have that), but for power. Not just a lot of power. They want complete power. Some even want worship- from men. They believe wholeheartedly in their superiority. They use the resources they own to manipulate other people to do their bidding. As their power accumulates, they turn it ever stronger toward their final goal of perfect domination. Why did they fail in the past? Two things: First, the inner circle of power fell apart through corruption & greed. Power grabs and lack of unity destroyed focus & intent of their Plan. Second: the technology wasn’t there to hold together the sheer logistics necessary to control huge numbers of people and land mass.
I believe the first will always happen. The second, however, worries me.
The technology to control the logistics of world domination is there. No one could create a military large enough to control the entire human population against their will. Therefore, they need to convince the masses to do their bidding. The military & police will deal with the unconvinced only. Hence, the need to control information and the ‘narrative’. I have already proven that the wicked few have taken complete control of information and have divided it between themselves equally. They do not not allow the opposition any ‘air time’, thus making the population ignorant of other solutions. At this time in history, puppet politicians like Obama are still necessary to continue the illusion of American self determination. The wicked elite promise great power to these politicians and help them beat their opposition with an onslaught of money. Makes $35,800 fund raising events sound pretty practical, doesn’t it? It also sheds some light on why Senator Lieberman and the FCC have been so quietly attempting the illegal control & regulation of the Internet at a time when the world is on fire and our economy is devastated.
I believe in the prophesy of the Bible: I believe that Jesus will come back.
And he will win.
I believe in the American spirit.
The Bible references ‘courts’ that will discredit the wicked elite and end their sovereignty forever. I have often wondered, “What courts? God’s or Man’s?” I think both. Because good men & women will eventually rise up and take the American courts with the help of God and they will indeed rule against the corruption of these evil, powerful few. God’s court & Man’s court will take their legitimacy from them. There are more of us than them. Even soldiers are humans- most with allegiance to God. They will not be like Percy Grimm. By and large, Americans still love Jesus and God. When pushed to the wall, they will finally awake- exactly like on 9/11. I believe that this day will be perfectly coordinated with Jesus’ return. In the prophesies, it says that Jesus will rule the nations forever and will wisely resolve disagreements between them. That means that nations will still exist. That means the Earth will still exist. I believe that it will be on this day that God ends his ‘need’ for Satan and will unmake him and his followers forever. Why? Because I believe that the entire purpose of God’s creation is to have children who love & understand Him- voluntarily. The entire process of ‘evil vs. good’ will finally give birth to these children- those who faced adversity and temptation, but rejected them for God.
I believe that this will be the true beginning of man’s existence.
I believe that it will be then that mankind explores God’s creation with all the delight & wonder & good that we have always been capable of.
I believe it will be bliss.
