Are you marked for life?

Does the exponential rise of perversity in America make you want to cry?

In the 9th chapter of the book Ezekiel, the prophet has been shown the secret idolatry practiced by the people of Jerusalem, even in the Lord’s temple. And now He summons 6 angels to execute judgement, one with a writing kit.

Then I heard him call out in a loud voice, “Bring near those who are appointed to execute judgment on the city, each with a weapon in his hand.” And I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with a deadly weapon in his hand. With them was a man clothed in linen who had a writing kit at his side. They came in and stood beside the bronze altar.

Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.

As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.”

– Ezekiel 9:1-6

Pope Francis’s Vatican put on a pagan light show on the feast day of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception

Last Tuesday, December 8, 2015, was the feast day of the Immaculate Conception, a holy day of obligation when Catholics attend Mass in honor and remembrance of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ our Lord, being conceived without Original Sin. (See “The Woman Conceived Without Sin“)

Mary with baby Jesus

This was how Pope Francis (real name Jorge Bergoglio) and the Vatican chose as a public spectacle at St. Peter’s Square for the feast day of the Immaculate Conception — an hour-long “climate change” light show, backed by the World Bank that funds abortions in developing countries, and sponsored by organizations — named after Greek and Roman pagan gods, such as Seattle-based Vulcan Inc. (named after the Roman god Vulcan, the deity of destructive fire) — which push the climate change agenda.

In the light show, gigantic images of wild life, overcrowded city centers, depictions of pollution, and negative portrayals of industrialization were projected onto the façade of St. Peter’s Basilica, to underscore the “green” environmental creds of Bergoglio, who has endorsed, lock stock and barrel, the Left’s man-made global warming/climate change scam. (See “Pope Francis calls for a new global authority to combat ‘climate change“)

Below is a sample of the light-show images projected onto St. Peter’s Basilica (Source: Telegraph; h/t FOTM‘s josephbc69).

If those light-show images look familiar to you, that’s because you’ve seen them before.

On the night of August 1, 2015, the Empire State Building in New York City was lit up with projections of 160 gigantic images of endangered animals by an artist named Android Jones, to promote a new documentary, Racing Extinction. At the end of the light show, Jones projected the faces of the Hindu goddess Kali.

Kali on Empire State Building

Jones said he used Kali’s image to provide a “fierce new avatar” in the fight against pollution, extinction, and the harm that Earth is enduring today. That is most curious because this is how Wikipedia describes Kālī (which means “the black one” or “beyond time”):

[Although] recent devotional movements re-imagine Kāli as a benevolent mother goddess . . . The figure of Kāli conveys death, destruction, and the consuming aspects of reality. As such, she is also a “forbidden thing”, or even death itself.

Kali being the Hindu goddess of death would explain why she is typically portrayed wearing a necklace of skulls and a belt-skirt of bloody severed arms and hands, holding a blood-stained sword in one hand and a severed head in another, while standing triumphant on the body of her husband, the Hindu god Shiva.

Android Jones — who extols a demon goddess of death — is the same artist who was commissioned by Pope Francis’ Vatican to do the light show at St. Peter’s Square on the feast day of Mary, the mother of Jesus, whose incarnation and birth brought hope, light, salvation and the promise of eternal life to humankind.

Catholic leaders have spoken out about the Vatican’s light show (LifeSiteNews):

  • Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute said, “I am sorry that the facade of St. Peter’s has been turned into a propaganda stage for the scientific fraud known as ‘Catastrophic Man-Caused Global Warming’. I am sick at the thought that this most sacred space — St. Peter’s Basilica — will be the backdrop for the further dissemination of this fraud, whose ultimate goal is to impose a ‘Carbon Tax’ on the developed countries. This tax will not only cripple global economic growth and undermine democracy, its proceeds will be used to fund even more population control programs in the developing world.”
  • Voice of the Family co-founder John Smeaton said that contrary to popular perception, the “environmental agenda” is tied to an anti-human agenda. “The environmental movement commonly regards population growth as a threat. Developing nations are being flooded with contraceptives and subjected to pressure to legalise abortion. Given that contraception and environmentalism so often go hand-in-hand, it is deeply troubling that current Vatican authorities have so strongly endorsed the environmental agenda without taking an equally strong stance on the abortion and contraception agenda which lies behind it. If the Vatican issued similarly strong and high-profile calls to world governments to end abortion, many lives could be saved. The St. Peter’s light show is a clear demonstration of the tragic truth that this papacy has the wrong priorities.”

But the Vatican’s spokesperson for the light show, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the president of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, insists that “These illuminations will present images inspired of Mercy, of humanity, of the natural world, and of climate changes.” Fisichella said that the light show on the Vatican is meant to link Pope Francis’ environment encyclical Laudato si’ with the United Nations Climate Change Conference (Cop21) that just concluded in Paris. Having the show conclude the opening Year of Mercy celebrations also links the pope’s message about “mercy” to fighting “climate change.”

This is the same Archbishop Fisichella who, on December 4, 2015, told journalists that Canon Law 1370, which imposes automatic excommunication for “physical violence” against the pope, can also be deployed for verbal violence. He said:

“I would say that we need to understand well ‘physical violence,’ because sometimes words, too, are rocks and stones, and therefore I believe some of these sins, too, are far more widespread than we might think.”

In other words, whereas priests who openly advocate homosexuality and “gay” marriage are not excommunicated, if a Catholic criticizes Pope Francis and the criticism is construed as “verbal violence” — whatever that means — not only has the critic committed a sin, the sin is of such egregiousness that the individual could be automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

White: it’s the new Black

Good: it’s the new Evil

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
and champions at mixing drinks,
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
but deny justice to the innocent.
Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw
and as dry grass sinks down in the flames,
so their roots will decay
and their flowers blow away like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty
and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
– Isaiah 5:20-24

In this scripture, the Lord has pronounced judgement against corrupt courts, who are allowing every kind of evil to flourish, and persecuting Christians for adhering to the demands of conscience.

A word of advice to these corrupt courts: Buy flame retardant underwear.

The Triangle of Freedom

America is missing the most important component of freedom

guinnessIn his book, “UNSPEAKABLE – “Facing up to Evil in an Age of Genocide and Terror,”  Os Guinness lays out a clear minded view of this moment in time. Of particular importance to Americans is the following section of his book, focusing on the “American Experiment.” He points out that we have forgotten an ingredient of our system that is more important that all the others. The following is directly from his book.

http://www.amazon.com/Unspeakable-Facing-Up-Challenge-Evil/dp/0060833009


“The Framers’ Forgotten Issue

The second grand erosion concerns the contemporary dismissal of the American Framers’ solution for the problems of freedom. For the brilliant generation that devised what George Washington called the “great experiment,” the hardest problem to solve was the transience of freedom. Not only is it harder to be free than not to be free, but freedom never lasts. In politics, as in all spheres of human endeavor, no success is forever. Success finally fails. The challenge therefore is not just to win freedom (the achievement of the revolution in 1776), or even to order freedom (the achievement of the Constitution in 1787); the challenge is to sustain freedom⎯an achievement that is never finished because it is the challenge not of years or even decades, but of centuries.

The Framers’ realism in tackling this task was born of their knowledge of history, and in particular their intimate knowledge of the classical understanding of why freedom never lasts. They used history to defy history, and the roots of their wisdom are the key to understanding the revolution of their solutions.

For such writers as the Roman statesman Cicero and the Greek historian Polybius, there were three menaces to sustaining freedom: external menaces from other powers, and two internal menaces⎯the corruption of customs and the passing of time. The American experiment was designed to counteract all three.

If asked today what the Framers’ solution was, most Americans cite the distinctive seperation of powers in the Constitution, and this is indeed a crucial part of the solution.

But in fact, the ingenius American system of checks and balances is only half of the framers’ solution, and in the framers’ view, it would be inadequate without the other part. The forgotten part of the framers’ solution may be called the enduring triangle of freedom: freedom requires virtue, virtue requires faith of some sort, and faith requires freedom. Only so can a free republic hope to remain free.

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom,” Benjamin Franklin said in support of the first assumption, and the framers’ unanimity on this point is a powerful chorus in his support. At the same time they were equally clear that law alone is not enough to restrain evil and sustain freedom. As John Adams put it⎯and the support was again overwhelming⎯”We have no government armed with powers capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The force of the framers’ declaration of this triangle of freedom is undeniable. But it is equally undeniable that many American leaders dismiss or overlook it today. On the one hand, the majority of believers in America have a faith so privatized that it has become “privately engaging and publicly irrelevant”⎯too amiably innocuous to serve the strenuous cause of freedom. On the other hand, the educated elite have espoused a different vision of public life, one in which faith, character and virtue are to be inviolably private and the public square⎯a neutral arena of competing interrests⎯is to be inviolably secular.

The framers’ arguments can be dismissed in one of several ways. Some argue that their views were only a matter of rhetoric and cant, though they themselves denied this. Others argue that they were children of their times, but a study of other republicans of their day shows this was not so. Finally, still others argue, we moderns have discovered some sustaining power for freedom that does what the framers thought the triangle of freedom was needed to do.

This last possibility is the most plausible, though people that make this claim should openly declare what the substitute is. Most people have nothing convincing to say at this point and fall back lamely on the answers of law and technology. A moment’s thought, however, would show that reliance on law without faith or virtue only produces more laws and greater regulations, just as reliance on technology without faith and virtue produces tighter and tighter systems of surveillance. In either case, freedom is steadily undermined.

It is also possible that the framers were not indulging in high-flying rhetoric better suited for the Fourth of July but were in fact correct⎯soundly, solidly correct with all the realism and wisdom of history and political theory on their side. For America to “work,” Americans must cultivate the virtues necessary for freedom and ensure that they are passed from generation to generation. This is the political challenge of our times. Without this triangle of freedom, freedom cannot and will not last. If we celebrate freedom but remove from it all virtue until no good remains, we will not only lose freedom but ensure that what is left is evil. Thus, if the framers were correct, the contemporary adulation of their genius that ignores the heart of their realism and brilliance is a fateful neglect that tips the scales toward some future evil that no checks and balances will be able to stop.

(Note: 2005 was before America elected Barack Obama)

To clarify my point, if our culture continues into moral ruin, with LGBT, 50 Shades of Perversion, abortion on demand and every other sin, we cannot continue to be free. Our freedom will surely and soon be taken away from us unless we repent and call out to God for forgiveness.

Are the Makers of the “Selma” Movie Satanists???

How many people do you know who kid around about being satanists? Well, Brad Pitt, one of the producers of the movie “Selma”, had this to say at the Toronto Film Festival while promoting his movie “Money Ball”:

“I related it more to my upbringing,” Pitt said. “I grew up in a very Christian environment, a healthy environment, a loving family. But there were just parameters and things I didn’t understand. I always questioned it and it took me to my adult years or leaving home where I could really try on something different for myself. That was Satanism. It’s working out really well. I made a pact. That’s why the movie came out so well.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/09/moneyball-brad-pitt-toronto-press-conference_n_955295.html

“He was joking,” claimed the press. And maybe he was, but doesn’t that strike you as an odd thing to joke about?

Here’s a picture of Pitt showing off what appears to be a Masonic ring. At Henry Makow’s excellent site (http://www.henrymakow.com/)you’ll find tons of info detailing the connection between Masonry and satanism.

Then there’s Pitt’s wife, U.N. Ambassador and CFR member Angelina Jolie. You can find a lot of info showing links between the United Nations and Satanism on Henry’s site, and here:

Satanists? You be the judge.

The Average American

The average American spends five hours a day in front of the boob tube. They love their super heroes, their sports heroes, and their reality television stars. (They especially love their Kardashian sisters.) To the average American, a world of fantasy and illusion is preferable to real life.

The average American is obsessed with sex (possibly because they aren’t getting any), and obsessed with celebrities. Because their own lives are so petty and lacking in spiritual foundation, the average American worships fame and seeks to experience it vicariously through others.

The average American lives on a diet of fast food, junk food, processed food, and microwaved food. As a result, the average American is sick, sick, sick, addicted to numerous drugs and painkillers, and a virtual slave to the medical mafia.

The average American has one great fear: criticism. This fear of criticism is greater than their desire to succeed, their desire to know the truth, and even their desire to live. As a result, the average American is in firm acceptance of whatever authority figures or the mainstream media tells them. They accept wholeheartedly the “official story” of 9/11, Sandy Hook, Boston, and the biography of the man who calls himself Obama.

Because of this fear, the average American is gullible and easily swayed by advertising and the mainstream media. Any huckster, devoid of morality, can easily become a millionaire (or political leader) by exploiting this lack of critical thinking on the part of average Americans, and many have.

The average American prefers to have others tell them what to think and how to think, rather than think for themselves. The average American eats, dresses, and votes exactly how they are told. Their entire life, from birth to death, is programmed, controlled, and manipulated, and they don’t even know it.

The average American knows nothing about the Federal Reserve, how the Federal Reserve was created, or how the Fed prints fiat currency out of thin air. What’s worse, the average American has no interest in knowing. They’d rather watch television.

image

The average American lives a life of hypocrisy and denial. They identify with Christianity, or, in ever increasing numbers, they claim to be “spiritual, but not religious,” and yet they support political leaders who promote abortion, racism, inequality, the shredding of the Constitution, the loss of freedom and individual rights, and even murder.

The average American becomes angry and defensive when their belief system is challenged. They want to be certain of what they know even if everything they know is wrong.

The average American is generally well educated in the performance of their job or career, but takes little pride in their work and has zero knowledge or interest in how or why their job or career could be harming others.

The average American makes life difficult for the non-average American. Because they comprise the vast majority of people in this country, the average American creates the reality that we all must live in. The average American is frightened by non-average Americans and they are complicit in their persecution.

The average American is racked with guilt. Deep down inside, they know their lifestyle and choices are wrong, not just for themselves, but for all their fellow Americans, but their great fear of criticism, and the responsibilities and complexities of life are just too much for them to deal with. As a result, they retreat from reality through alcohol, drugs, television, junk food, television, and compulsive shopping.

Some average Americans are so far removed from reality that they actually enjoy a world of blissful ignorance. They frolic through life, oblivious of the great harm that their lifestyle and voting choices cause to others. They believe everything the mainstream media tells them. Many of them live 50, 60, 70 years or more and never experience an ounce of reality. Hollywood and the new age/self-improvement industry are filled with these types. Throw a stick at Malibu and you’ll hit ten of them.

The average American is portrayed in advertising as giddy, confident, and fun-loving. Nothing could be further from the truth. Except for the blissful idiots mentioned above, the average American leads a frightened and desperate life. The hide it well, but deep down inside, they are miserable. They make perfect pawns for those who hate America and they are used accordingly to spread racism, multi-culturism, and leftism.

The average American is all around you: on television, on the street outside, and right outside your door.

Aren’t you glad you’re not the average American?
