PLAYING "END TIME" GAMES:
LOOKING BACK TO BABYLON,
AND MORPHING INTO A PILLAR OF SALT

"A new beginning in the history of the state is always marked, in one or another way, by the use of force. For the state is power. New decisions, new attitudes, transformations and upheavals always signify victory on one side and defeat on another [Just as the election of 2004 indicated victory for the Christian Right, and defeat for the "Secular-Humanist" Left - editor]. And if the life and death of the nation are at stake, then the power of the state must be employed effectively and with vigor, whether internally or externally.

"If the state carries out its duties against those who undermine the foundations of state order - against those, in particular, whose course and corrosive words destroy marriage, expose faith to contempt, and slander all who lay down their lives for their fatherland - then let the state carry out its duties, IN GOD'S NAME!"

- Friedrich Dibelius
General Superintendent of the Lutheran Church

INTRODUCTION

I never quit being dumbfounded and shocked by those Christians who - while understanding (at least to some limited degree) the nature and character of George Bush's American New World Order System, and who appreciate (again, at least to some tiny extent) the HORROR of the alliance the church (so-called) has made with that system - underestimate the TERROR that is about to be unleashed on them in the name of God. While they would never admit it, they think that what is about to befall them is analogous to an exciting game where those Christians who oppose the developing Religio/Political system will be called upon to match wits with the secular and religious authorities of the new super-state - kind of like the protagonists in William Pierce's Turner Diaries, and - perhaps more to the point - the heroes and heroines of Tim LaHayes Left Behind books (which in a very real sense are nothing more than a sanitized, "Christian" variation on Pierce's Turner Diaries). [Please see our article, "A Growing Rage in America's Heartland" for a discussion of William Pierce's ideas.]

They think of it as an adventure that can be played out in the shadows and hidden crevices of the developing New World Order System using secret, off-shore bank accounts, false identities, covert stashes of gold, secret mountain cabins, clandestine meetings, etc. - a game in which thousands and thousands of others will eventually join them once "THEY SEE THE LIGHT" as they most surely will as time goes on, at least according to the "game players." MOREOVER, THEY BELIEVE THAT THIS GAME CAN BE "PLAYED OUT" IN THE MIDST OF "BABYLON THE GREAT" as they go about their "regular" business of being good citizens, good wives and husbands, loyal, hard-working employees, good church members, etc. - kind of like the way Clark Kent does who hides his identity as "Superman" during the day, but engages in great deeds of "daring-do" as the "man of steel" at night.

ALL SO MUCH NONSENSE

But this is all so much NONSENSE. This kind of opposition never developed in Germany against Hitler sixty years ago, and it's NOT going to develop today in the United States. To say otherwise is tantamount to exhibiting a kind of insipid naiveté that is truly appalling concerning the "New Surveillance State" that has developed in our midst over the last several decades (and concerning the TERROR that it is capable of wielding).

The truth is, one has only to examine America's hellish CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM - a system that was specifically developed by the elites to break the back of the black community - to understand how nonsensical such "game-playing" would be. There is NO other criminal justice system in the world like it; and none comes even close to approximating its enormous extent - and once it is turned on Christian "game-players," THAT WILL BE THE END OF THAT. [Please see our article, "The Watchers Are Watching You;" please also see our article, "Now Is The Time To Do Something: It Might Be Too Late Tomorrow" for a detailed explanation of how the elites quashed Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement."]

TODAY'S AMERICAN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM

And what a MONSTER this criminal justice system is! Christian Parenti writes:

"An estimated 6.6 MILLION AMERICANS live under the control of the American criminal justice system: either in jail, in prison, or on parole or probation."

Think about that! - 6.6 MILLION AMERICANS. That's more people in absolute numbers that are being controlled by the criminal justice system in America than are controlled by parallel institutions in Canada, all of Europe, Russia and Latin America COMBINED. That's simply astounding! - THAT'S ONE PERSON IN EVERY 35 PEOPLE! But even these figures don't tell the whole story of how INTRUSIVE and CONTROLLING the criminal justice system has become in the United States. If one discounts for children and teenagers (about 35 percent of the population), that brings the rate of incarceration and/or parole and probation to ONE PERSON IN EVERY 23 ADULTS. [Again, in connection with all this, we urge you NOT to be simple-minded about the HORROR of this system; please see our article, "Don't Be Naive About Going To Prison For Christ."]

And it gets worse still! When these people are released from jail on parole, or are given probation and return to their families, the homes of those families (girlfriends, wives, children, mothers and fathers, etc.) to which they return automatically become liable to unannounced "searches and seizures" by criminal justice officials since, as Parenti puts it -

"... the already gossamer-thin Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure are suspended for all parolees and probationers."

Parenti continues:

"... agents routinely drop in on parolees and probationers to TOSS their homes for contraband, just as prison guards routinely search convicts' cells."

OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED HOME INVASIONS

Naturally enough, this puts all those who share a home with such people in jeopardy. To say otherwise - i.e., to suggest that when police and/or parole agents intrude into these homes in their officially sanctioned "home invasions," the "papers and effects" of those who are not on parole or probation remain inviolable during the "search" - is disingenuous at best.

The name of the game here is to instill the "fear of God" into "this CLASS of people" - and as far as most criminal justice officials are concerned, that includes all those associated with the parolees and probationers. "I want these people to think that I'm always there, that I'm always watchin," says a parole agent in Texas. [We urge you, if you have not already, to read our article, "The Watchers are Watching You;" please also see our article, "Making Men Cogs in a Machine."]

Obviously, in this kind of an atmosphere, EVERYONE in the home comes under suspicion. EVERYONE becomes a "target" for a ride "downtown" because EVERYONE'S "space," "space" which ordinarily should be sacrosanct, becomes subject indirectly to a search - and more often than not, the army of parole agents and police officers who are stalking these parolees and probationers are just looking for an excuse to "lock up" other members of the family: After all, the "prison-industrial complex" (which has grown into a vast, money-making industry supporting huge numbers of average citizens) must be fed. [More about this in upcoming articles.]

What this policy effectively does is bring into the orbit of the criminal justice system another large (otherwise innocent) chunk of the American population, bringing the rate of adults whose homes are susceptible to unannounced "searches and seizures" to ONE PERSON IN EVERY 15 PEOPLE.

That's enough to take one's breath away! IN NO OTHER NATION ON EARTH - NOT EVEN IN "RED CHINA" - DOES THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM INTRUDE SO POWERFULLY AND PERVASIVELY INTO THE EVERYDAY LIVES OF ITS CITIZENS. America stands alone in this regard.

Now stop and think about what this would mean if this system were suddenly turned against you in your so-called clandestine "war" against the American New World Order System: What it would mean is that you would have to SHUN all of your Christian friends and comrades who might from time to time be released from prison on parole. No "hospitality" for them in YOUR home lest the agents of the government break in and "TOSS" it - and in the process discover your hidden-away superman costume.

Succoring and giving aid to those who have been released from prison would certainly put an end to your ability to be a Clark Kent during the day, and a Superman at night; and - what's even worse - it could also result in a trip "up the river" for YOU! That would never do! What would happen to your family then? No! - consorting with parolees and probationers, even Christian comrades-in-arms in the war against the American New World Order System, would have to be avoided at all cost. In this new system of things, "Guilt by Association" is in the "nature of things," and "association" of any sort with the wrong kind of people could result in the loss of one's job, the loss of one's credit, the loss of one's ability to travel, etc. Pretty heavy! That's moving out of the realm of playing games and into the realm of reality. That will never do!

HAULING PEOPLE BACK TO THE SLAMMER

Moreover, the list of things that can get a parolee or a probationer thrown back into the "slammer" is enormous - from possession of a small pocket knife, to missing or even being late for an appointment with a parole or probation agent, to "dirty urine," to being fired from a job and becoming unemployed, to drinking a beer, to being late for curfew, ad nauseum - the list is endless.

Furthermore, unlike "regular cops," parole and probation officers can act as JUDGES IN THE FIELD, sending their "prey" back to prison without recourse on the most "technical" of "technical violations." For example, take what happened to Joseph Bostic who - as recounted by Kelly Virella in an article entitled, "Trapped by the System" - accidentally overdrew his checking account. How many of you have done that before? But that was enough for Bostic to be sent back to prison for another three years. These are the kind of "parole violations" that I'm talking about here; and it is PRECISELY these kind of violations, NOT the kind of violent acts most often reported in the press, that get by far the great majority of parolees and probationers sent back "up the river" to prison.

THE NAME OF THE GAME IS INTIMIDATION

Now you must understand something here! There is a purpose in "mandating" these kind of diminutive, minuscule violations as valid reasons (so-called) to send a parolee and/or a probationer back to jail. It gives the parole agents virtually unlimited power over their charges since almost anyone who is being watched closely is bound to make a mistake now and then. All this to say nothing of the gray area that exists between what constitutes an infraction and what doesn't.

The scheme here approximates the same one used "in the field" by police against motorists in poor, black neighborhoods where the police use the tiniest infractions (broken tail light, broken side mirror, "driving erratically" (that's always a good one! - after all, how can anyone prove otherwise?), etc. to pull vehicles over and harass poor people and "people of color" and run a "warrants check" on them! And one must remember here, in most cases, the kind of warrants that come up are - contrary to what most middle-class Americans think - NOT for violent felonies, but warrants that attach themselves to people BECAUSE THEY ARE POOR. For example, unpaid parking tickets, smog violations, unregistered cars, driving without insurance, etc. But it's enough usually for a ride "downtown" and a couple of weeks in jail - or more probation.

It's all so scary that huge numbers of the poor don't drive anymore; they don't even come out of their homes except to sneak off to their minimum wage jobs and back again - WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THE ELITES WANT.

MAKING MEMBERS OF THE CRIMINAL
JUSTICE SYSTEM INTO LITTLE GODS

The whole corrupt (and even immoral) process here is used to INTIMIDATE and FRIGHTEN those against whom it is directed (i.e., the poor), and in the process it turns the probation and parole agents into god-like figures in the eyes of those over whom they have charge; "little gods" who have the power to cage a person up like some kind of wild beast or let him go at their whim. It all depends on how they are feeling that day, and whether or not their "prey" has shown them enough deference and "respect." After all, everyone loves being a god! - it's in our "fallen nature."

The power here! The ABSOLUTE power! - AND THIS KIND OF WICKED, WICKED POWER NOW HAS HOLD ON ALMOST ONE IN EVERY 15 PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES - making one wonder if people in America don't need the Iraqi army to liberate them rather than the other way around.

Don't laugh! It's PRECISELY for this reason that so many people in black communities have embraced Louis Farahakan and the Nation of Islam, and why so many others throughout the world reject Christianity and embrace the Muslim faith (so-called). Christianity is seen by the poor and oppressed of the world as the religion of their oppressors! It's a rich man's religion; it has NOTHING to do with the poor. It's not without reason that God has said,

"... my name is profaned among the heathen (i.e., unbelievers) because of YOU." (Ezek 36:21)

THE PATRIOT ACT

It's this system, it's PRECISELY this twisted, profane criminal justice system, that is about ready to be turned on YOU - all in the name of God. Then what will you do? What will happen to all your "game playing" then?

That's what the PATRIOT ACT is all about! The very real truth of the matter is, the provisions of the so-called Patriot Act and other similar legislation are well nigh intolerable insofar as those who fall victim to them are concerned; for example - and as we have indicated previously - "associating with the wrong kind of people" suddenly takes on a much more ominous tenor given the fact that the people who can be deemed the "wrong kind of people" can now be understood to include people who have "suspect" political and (as a result of the 2004 presidential election) religious beliefs; and "contraband articles" can now become computers, printing presses, copy machines, etc. AND IT'S NOT AS THOUGH WE ARE "REACHING" INSOFAR AS ALL THIS IS CONCERNED. Take what's already happened to a man named Sherman Austin - AND AS YOU DO SO, BEAR IN MIND WHAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE IN PRISON. [Please see our report on what happened to Austin which appears as an appendage at the end of our article, "Now Is The Time To Do Something; It May Be Too Late Tomorrow;" please also see our last article, "Don't Be Naive About Going To Prison For Christ."]

THE CASE OF SHERMAN AUSTIN

Almost one year has now passed since Southern California-area activist Sherman Austin entered federal prison on "TRUMPED-UP" federal charges of "distribution" of information about making or using explosives with the "intent" that such information "be used for, or in furtherance of, an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence."

Austin had become a target of the elite's effort to stomp HARD on the struggle of the "GREAT UNWASHED" to protest the elite's globalization policies which aim at enriching the American elites at the expense of the poor, not only in the United States, but all over the world. [Please see our articles, "The WTO and the Masses" and "Lee Kyang: the Rich and the Poor! America and God!"]

He was "locked up" for political reasons! And it's NOT much of a stretch to understand that if the state can do this to Austin for political reasons, it can do it to YOU for religious reasons - after all, the line between religion and politics in George Bush's American New World Order System has become pretty thin. Attack the Religious Right and you attack the Political Right; attack the Political Right and you attack the Religious Right. It's all one-in-the-same-thing: That's what the results of the 2004 election very plainly suggest. That's the "new reality" in today's America.

TRUMPED UP FEDERAL CHARGES

As in the case of Judi Bari, Darryl Cherney and "Earth First," FBI conduct in Austin's case bears all the hallmarks of the nefarious activities of a "Gestapo" or "National Security State." [Please see our article, "Judi Bari, Darryl Cherney and Earth First."]

For example, the affidavits that Agent Pi, the FBI agent in charge of Austin's case, used to "shop" for a judge to authorize the FBI raid on Austin's home - and then, a week later, for the arrest of Austin - contained numerous and very blatant factual errors (and even FABRICATIONS), including the claim (i.e., the fabrication) that Austin authored the bomb-making instructions (which the FBI knew to be untrue at the time they made the request). The FBI even enlisted the help of a right-wing militia member who, in e-mails to Austin, attempted unsuccessfully to provoke him into writing self-incriminating replies. That's called "entrapment," and it's illegal; but, then, this kind of illegality has never stopped the FBI in the past.

MAKING AN EXAMPLE OUT OF AUSTIN

Again - as in the case of Bari and Cherney (above) - the FBI was determined to arrest and "put away" Austin (and in the process, make an example of him), and they were not going to let the facts stand in their way. [Please see our article, "The Utility of Police Brutality in the Elite's War Against the Poor."]

Austin operated an Internet "server" that provided free space to anti-globalist activists looking for places to store their websites, and those taking Austin up on his offer could alter the contents of their websites independently of Austin. The offending material that ultimately sent Austin to prison contained amateurish bomb-making instructions authored by a teenage boy, who admitted to the FBI that he had assembled and uploaded the material - but whom the agency and prosecutors never arrested or charged. They weren't interested in him; they wanted to get Austin - and they wanted to get Austin not because of the boy's amateurish prattling insofar as bombs were concerned, but because he (i.e., Austin) was a central figure in the anti-globalist movement.

OVERCHARGING AS A TECHNIQUE OF INTIMIDATION

Austin had intended to fight the charges, but eventually he pleaded guilty on the advice of his federal public defender, Ronald Kaye, who feared that new "terrorism enhancements" in the federal sentencing guidelines could earn Austin another 20 years in prison. "Over charging" people has become a powerful tactic in the elite's war against those who oppose them, usually people of little means who must rely on over-worked public defenders who sometimes have less than just a few hours (sometimes barely minutes in the hallway of the court building immediately before the trial) to spend on one's case. Indeed, in an article entitled, "Absolute Power, Absolute Corruption," Robert Owen writes:

"Another pernicious and commonplace variety of prosecutorial overreaching is overcharging, a tactic that can assume a number of different forms depending on the case and the jurisdiction. One type of overcharging occurs when prosecutors routinely frame charges at the highest degree of seriousness ..."

The tactic here is to charge the maximum and "scare the hell" out of a defendant who - even if he is innocent - doesn't want to risk the HORROR of a long prison term. Owen continues:

"Even if he (i.e., the defendant) is represented by competent counsel who will vigorously challenge the prosecution's case, there is a substantial risk that the jury may convict him of the greater charge anyway. The risk is particularly great when the accused cannot hire his own counsel and so must rely on a court-appointed lawyer carrying an impossibly heavy caseload and armed with too few investigative resources to give ... the case the serious scrutiny it deserves. Such bleak prospects tend to coerce the overcharged defendant into giving up his right to trial (that is, pleading innocent) in return for a reduced charge."

This kind of thing (i.e., overcharging) is ROUTINE in today's criminal justice system insofar as the poor are concerned, making the belief that "a defendant has nothing to fear if he is innocent" so much empty, meaningless rhetoric. THIS WAS EXACTLY THE CASE WITH AUSTIN. [Again, please see our article, "Don't Be Naive About Going To Prison For Christ."]

Austin received a one year prison sentence - three times what he had originally been told he would receive - and now faces three additional years of "supervised" release. During that time, his computer access will be monitored, and his equipment subject to unannounced inspection. Technically, he is allowed to associate with activists and political groups except those that, in the words of the probation department -

"... espouse violence or physical force as a means of intimidation or achieving economic, social, or political change."

Of course, what that effectively means is that Austin cannot associate with any activist groups because the parole agent in charge decides who does and who does not constitute a group that "espouses violence or physical force as a means of intimidation or achieving economic, social, or political change" - AND THIS AGENT HAS THE POWER, AS WE HAVE ALREADY DISCUSSED, TO BE AUSTIN'S "JUDGE AND JURY" IN THE FIELD IN SUCH INSTANCES, all without prior warning as to what he is going to do (or not do) or how he is going to rule on this or that group. In effect, he will be Austin's "god" for three years, and Austin had better bow down and grovel if he knows what's good for him.

ELECTRONIC SHACKLES

Finally, if the authorities deem it necessary, Austin may be required to wear an electronic shackle. Electronic shackles have become a very popular means of controlling parolees and/or probationers in recent years. Any infraction of the parolee's schedule of work, official interviews, and curfew, or association with the "wrong kind of people" means a year back in the pen. Such shackles use satellite-based GPS tracking. Parenti writes:

"It's Star Wars. 'You can literally watch where ... (people) go and you can set up parameters where they can't go', explained one New Jersey probation official. With GPS tags, the guardians of order can now supervise the real-time movements of their wards.

"If the parolee wanders into 'forbidden hot zones' (in the case of Austin, into areas where political demonstrations are being held, in homes where his activist friends meet, etc.), alarms sound on a central computer, a digital record of the transgression is logged, and if necessary an immediate response can be made."

One parole officer, commenting on the efficacy of such shackles, said:

"They're so accurate that a parole agent can see that an offender is traveling 67 mph on Interstate 80."

Now I ask, where in all of this will there be room for the kind of "game playing" that some Christians think is possible - at least insofar as BABYLON THE GREAT (i.e., the United States) is concerned.

IT'S CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

Moreover, one should take note of the fact that all it's going to take for these practices to be utilized more widely against Christians who oppose Bush's American New World Order System is another "manufactured" 9/11 event - another "Reichstag Fire," so to speak - which is just a hair's breath away given the Empire's desperate need for more HUMAN FLESH to be thrown into the meat-grinder in the Middle East.

CONTROL! - that's what these methodologies and these kind of devices give the state: CONTROL! And, again, when all this is extended to those deemed political (or religious) "enemies of America's New World Order System," what will those Christians do who think they can "match wits" with the state by using secret, offshore banking accounts, hidden stashes of gold, secret handshakes, invisible ink and all the other idiotic paraphernalia of Tim LaHaye's dim-witted, simple-minded Left Behind books? More likely than not, they will "fade into the woodwork and shut up." And if that's the case, What will such people say on THAT day when they at last appear before a wrathful God to give an account of their lives? And, more, What will they do when they hear those awful words thundered out against them:

"... cast ye the UNPROFITABLE servant into outer darkness: THERE SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH." (Matt. 25:30) ?

SLIDING INTO THE ABYSS

Still Christians hesitate! In the final analysis, they don't seem to see what's happening - though the facts of the matter are plain enough for anyone to see: the FACT that America has embarked on a policy of ENDLESS war; the FACT that the re-imposition of the draft is only a hair's breadth away - a draft that will enlist their sons and daughters in this war to be maimed and killed in the service of corporate greed; the FACT that their country is sliding inexorably into dictatorship; the FACT that their right to assemble and protest the policies of the government is being restricted to the point where it no longer has any practical meaning; the FACT of the increasing restrictions on their right to travel; the FACT of the new and massive increase of government surveillance; the FACT of the massive "militarization of the police;" the FACT that the government can wiretap their phones, monitor their email and Internet usage, search their homes and businesses, and seize documents all without a warrant; the FACT that the government can now arrest people without charges and hold them indefinitely (i.e., "disappear" people); the FACT that the government is blurring the wall between the police functions of the state and its intelligence functions, and so forth and so on.

Milton Mayer, once a well-known essayist, described a similar escalation of surveillance and control sixty years ago in the gathering storm of German fascism. He interviewed a German philologist who described the process in terms that might sound familiar:

"What happened was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to be governed by surprise, to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believe that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security ... The separation of government from the people, this widening gap, took place so gradually and insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter ... Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted' that, unless one were to detach from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these 'little measures' that no 'patriotic German' could resist must some day lead to, ONE NO MORE SAW IT DEVELOPING FROM DAY TO DAY THAN A FARMER IN HIS FIELD SEES THE CORN GROWING ...

"Believe me this is true. Each act, each occasion is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one shocking occasion, THINKING THAT OTHER PEOPLE, WHEN SUCH A SHOCK COMES, WILL JOIN YOU IN RESISTING SOMEHOW ...

"Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, WHAT YOU HAVEN'T DONE (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we did nothing) ... You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. YOU ARE COMPROMISED BEYOND REPAIR."

Is that what you're doing? - waiting for that SHOCK the "game players" suggest is coming that will induce others to join with you in opposing what's happening now? If so, you'll be waiting till hell freezes over and, as Mayer indicates, YOU ARE COMPROMISED BEYOND REPAIR. This is what happened to Christians in Germany.

AMERICA REALLY IS DIFFERENT FROM
ALL THE OTHER NATIONS OF THE EARTH

Brothers and sisters, listen to me here! - if you can't break away from Babylon the Great now, you'll NEVER be able to break away then - when you are threatened with the kind of thing that happened to Sherman Austin. And please, in all of this, don't make the asinine mistake that is being pressed upon you by some of my erstwhile colleagues that eventually all the world will become part of the American New World Order System - and, therefore, to leave the United States will, in the long run, accomplish little or nothing for you. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE! THAT'S A CONVENIENT BUT VERY WICKED CONTRIVANCE AND SUBTERFUGE.

Yes! - it's true that all the world will eventually be absorbed by the American New World Order System, just as all of Europe was eventually conquered and absorbed by Nazi Germany; but there was still a great difference to be remarked upon insofar as Germany's conquered territories were concerned (i.e., France, Denmark, Poland, the Ukraine, Norway, Holland, Belgium, etc.) and Germany herself; and there was a GREAT DISTINCTION to be remarked upon insofar as the conduct of these different populations were concerned vis a vis the people of Germany. Germany's population actually PARTICIPATED in Germany's crimes; the population of Germany's "slave states" SUFFERED as a result of these crimes.

There is a big difference here; it is, to put it in the vernacular, the difference between the "screwer" and the "screwee;" the difference between the one who is being raped, and the one who is doing the raping; the difference between the perpetrator and the victim; the difference between MASTER and SLAVE - SO ALSO INSOFAR AS AMERICA IS CONCERNED vis a vis HER CLIENT-STATES, i.e., HER SLAVE STATES.

THE SHEER IDIOCY EVINCED
BY THE "GAME PLAYERS"

The UTTER stupidity of the "games" that these Christian "game players" dream up in order to evade their responsibilities insofar as the Prophetic Scriptures are concerned is truly staggering here - i.e., games supposedly designed to (1) make it possible for them to get on with their "regular" lives of being good citizens, good wives and husbands, loyal, hard-working employees, good church members, etc. during the day, while (2) allowing them to be "Supermen" during the night. [What that's really called is "playing both ends against the middle."]

And, oh, what secret, FANCIFUL subterfuges they have come up with in order to "trick" the system! For example, take the twisted and even perverted advice that one particular brother, a medical student, is peddling to brothers and sisters in the United States on how to avoid military service without having to flee the country: HE ADVISES YOUNG PEOPLE TO CUT THEIR FINGERS OFF (he says he'll even help). Can you believe that this advice is coming from a medical student? This is way beyond being sophomoric: it borders on being INSANE.

Whatever happened to the Hippocratic Oath "to do no harm?" I wonder if this IMBECILE (and that's truly what he is) will cut off his own fingers when he is at last called up to serve in the military? I doubt very much that he will - it would end his medical career. To such JERKS (and, again, that's truly what he is), what's good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander. No! - he'll join the army. And in doing so, he will, no doubt, justify his ingression into America's Crusader Army (really, it's "killing machine") by saying that he is "saving lives" - though certainly not the lives that this "killing machine" has been turned loose on (mainly the poor and oppressed of the earth).

How convenient for him, how unfortunate for those whose fingers he cuts off; but an "intelligence officer" could make the same claim when he is torturing prisoners to get information from them - i.e., that he is doing it in order to "save American lives." The logic that all this evidences is the same kind of twisted logic that animated Dr. Mengele and the rest of the German medical establishment during the Second World War. God deliver us from doctors (so-called) like these!

He says that he has "researched" the Scriptures on this one - but most likely, what he has really done is WICKEDLY and very CALLOUSLY taken Matthew 5:30, 18:8 and Mark 9:43 totally out of context - and he has done so because he doesn't want to appear as the sniveling COWARD that he really is in not wanting to throw his medical career away (and the worldly prestige that goes along with it) in obedience to Revelation 18:4 - after all, he has several years to go insofar as his studies are concerned, to say nothing of the huge financial obligations he has acquired to the BEAST along the way.

Does that sound like someone who really believes the end is near? Who really believes that America is Babylon the Great? - or does it sound like a "Poser," a "Pretender," a person who is "into" the "end of days" because it is a "neat" diversion from the mundane nature of his otherwise very dull life. When "push finally comes to shove," this brother will undoubtedly collapse quickly to the blandishments of George Bush's American New World Order System. These kind of people evince bravery only so long as bravery is not required of them; when it's finally required, they run for cover. God help such a person! - because it will not go well for him on THAT day. [Please see our articles, "The Aliya Foundation," "I Am Amazed," and "The Good News of the Coming Kingdom."

If these are the kind of people you want to take advise from, so be it! But you should know that you are following a pack of cringing COWARDS and moral WEAKLINGS who don't have the courage of their own convictions. In fact, most of them don't even have the courage to stand up to the self-indulgent entreaties of their own wives who - like Lot's wife before them (Genesis 19:10-25) - are desperate NOT to leave the comfort of Babylon (or in the case of Lot's wife, Sodom).*

"If you think I'm leaving this life behind to flee into the wilderness you are crazy!"

How, then, can such snivelers have the courage to take a stand against George Bush's American New World Order System when THAT time finally comes? Undoubtedly, they will do what they have done insofar as the self-serving pleas of their wives are concerned - they will wilt and run away. These people - all of them - fear the wrong people. They fear man (and the wrath of their wives) more than they fear God. The Bible says:

"... fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell ..." (Matt. 10:28)

Who is it that YOU fear

TIME HAS RUN OUT ON ALL OF US

If it sounds like I am being hard, it's because time has run out on ALL of us. The end really is upon us. There's no time left for "niceties;" there's no time left for being polite! As far as it lies within my power, no one is going to be cast into "outer darkness" as an "unprofitable servant" (Matt. 25:30) because I was "nice" to them, and in the process of being "nice" (so-called) failed to deliver to them the "whole counsel of God." On THAT day, when I at last appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ, no one will be able to charge me with that. As Paul said, so I say now to YOU,

"Wherefore I take YOU to record this day, that I am pure (innocent) from the blood of all men (specifically, of YOUR blood).

"For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God." (Acts 20:26-27)

And if, per chance, I earn people's hatred for telling the truth, so be it if some of them can be SHOCKED and AWAKENED as a result. I would rather that people hate me now for being "unkind" (so-called) than hate me later because I was not honest with them.

Some, of course, say that I should "dialogue" with those who oppose us; that I should "reason" with them. BUT I WOULDN'T WASTE MY TIME! They know what they should do! - that they should leave Babylon; that they should get out. The Scriptures are plain enough to see if anyone really wants to see. They don't leave because they "love" it there, and/or they are MORAL cowards insofar as their wives and other loved ones are concerned. You don't talk people out of being a coward. Reason has nothing to do with being a COWARD! What you do is LEAVE THEM BEHIND! - and that's the end of it.

Hard? Yes! - very hard. But then the Scriptures themselves are hard - or how else does one take Christ's words when He says:

"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came NOT to send peace, but a sword.

"For I am come to set a man at VARIANCE against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

"He that loveth father or mother more than me IS NOT WORTHY OF ME: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me IS NOT WORTHY OF ME.

"And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME." (Matt. 10:34-35, 37-38)

Brothers and sisters, listen to me here: It's time for us all to begin taking the Prophetic Scriptures very, very seriously! The Scriptures warn us that we should not bury our heads in the sand and think that everything will be okay. The Bible says that you should not allow such things to -

"... overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober." (I Thess. 5:4-6)

Now, in saying all this, I am not telling you that you must leave the United States immediately in obedience to Revelation 18:4, though, I must say, the sooner the better. As I have indicated many times in the past, God knows that we in Antipas still need "good people" to staff our Aliya Groups in the United States so as to prepare others for emigration, to offer their homes as "way stations" for our "underground railroad," to offer "hospitality" as "Aquillas and Pricillas" to our "Traveling Teams" as they go forth into the "Streets of that Great City" as a testimony against it (and we hope to soon be sending many such teams back into the United States to testify against the apostate church in America and against the unholy alliance it has made with "Babylon the Great"); and, finally - heaven knows - we need people as sources of income for all this, and for what we are doing in Canada and the rest of the world. [Please see our article on the "Traveling Teams, "A Plan of Action for Antipas Ministries."]

But what I am saying is this: If you decide to stay in the United States - despite the warning of Revelation 18:4 - you had better be sure that it is God who told you to do so: You need to be sure that you are NOT taking what you think is the easy way out; specifically, that you are not staying because you refuse to take seriously the Prophetic Scriptures, or that you're staying because you don't have the courage to stand up to your loved ones who don't want to go. [And I must tell you here, your failure to ACTIVELY involve yourself with an Aliya group will pretty much give the "lie" to your "posturing."]

More next time!

Until then, God bless you,

Finally, we urge you all to read or re-read our article, "A Plan of Action for Antipas Ministries."

We URGE you also to acquaint (or re-acquaint) yourselves with what's coming soon in the Middle East (specifically, The Gog / Magog War) by reading (or re-reading) our article, "Sowing the Seeds of the Gog / Magog War." This article was written last April when the marines first stormed into the Iraqi city of Fallujah.

* My daughter, JC Hart, wants me to let you know that sometimes it can be the other way around - with men being the snivelers, and women being the strong ones - and she's right! Women! - don't hide behind the weakness of your husbands; you have NO right to do so.

We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles, "The Third World as a Model for the New World Order," Inside the American New World Order System" and "The American Empire: The Corporate / Pentagon / CIA / Missionary Archipelago."]
