I have said over and over again that if one steps out and publishes the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, it will cost him dearly: It has now very evidently cost me my relationship with my own brother, Doug who wrote me recently in reference to my article, "Understanding What You Will Be Facing during the Tribulation:"
"Good grief, Steve. Are you now attacking me personally? Implying I'm willing to compromise Biblical truth for the sake of unity?"
To which I replied,
"Wake up!! - That's exactly what you are doing. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF."
I speak here concerning the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, because my brother's reluctance to speak out concerning this Gospel lies at the heart of our dispute.
There is nothing more important today than this specific Gospel, and that is so because of the presence on this earth at this time in history of an entity - the American New World Order System - that falsely claims to represent Christ on earth; the America that John Hagee, Rob Parsley, Glen Cole, and all the rest of them are striving so mightily to create in coordination with their partners, the American New-Cons - not so much the America of the secular-humanist community. [See our article, "The Neo Conservatives."]
Such claims can only be a "turn-off" to the poor of the world who see the American New World Order System and the church that justifies it as FRAUDS. The fact is, most of the poor in the world today see Christianity as a rich, white man's religion having NOTHING to do with them. Sadly, Islam is more a religion of the poor than is Christianity. What do the poor of the world want to do with a religion that justifies the very system - i.e., the American New World Order System - that oppresses and brutalizes them? [We urge you to read our article, "A Woman Riding A Beast Going Forth Conquering and to Conquer" for insight as to how this partnership between the rich of the world and Christianity works; please also see our articles, "Africa: Wake Up," "Bringing in the Kingdom of God through Terror, Torture and Death" and "The Horror of John Dimitri Negroponte and Everything He Represents."]
The "GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM" is God's answer to this deception. It has been calculated to rip away the mask of piety behind which the religious FRAUDS who wickedly justify this system hide - for example, Christian leaders such as the late D. James Kennedy, Charles Stanley and John Hagee - while at the same time revealing the evil, avaricious "money-grubbing" that's really at the heart of the American Empire and that animates ALL those associated with it.
Once these frauds - and the system they excuse - are exposed for what they actually are, then the poor can see Christianity for what it really is: God's way of salvation for them, and see Christ for whom He really was - a POOR carpenter who said of Himself:
"... Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." (Luke 9:58) -
A Man who rather than placating the rich (as the leaders of today's church so shamefully do), said of them,
"... Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a (sewing) needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matt. 19:23-24) [Please see our article, "The Rich Have Seized Control of the Church."]
I have no doubt that my brother, and those who surround him, are more than cognizant of the fact that the United States is EXACTLY that "BEAST NATION" (Dan. 7:7) that the Bible says shall arise in the "end of days;" a nation that is "... DREADFUL" and "TERRIBLE," and "STRONG EXCEEDINGLY" with "great iron teeth;" one that "DEVOURS" and "BRAKES IN PIECES" the rest of the nations of the world (Daniel 7:7); and, finally, one that Isaiah describes as an "OVERFLOWING SCOURGE" (Is. 28:18) - an affliction, a plague on humanity; a blight, a pestilence, a "TERRORIST-STATE" that brings fear and horror to the peoples and nations of the world.
But for my brother to shout this great truth from the rooftops will mean that he will no doubt be called a "nut" like me, which will inevitably engender a great separation between himself and those with whom loves to "hob-nob" – people like Glen Cole of Capital Christian Center, and all his friends up at Multnomah Bible School and Western Theological Seminary.
However, my brother has a very clever "cop out" (as do his two colleagues, Doug and Dene): That there is no real need to SPECIFICALLY identify the United States as that nation, except – maybe – in the secrecy of one's own home and with one's closest confidants; after all, very soon now, all the world will be subsumed by the Antichrist and, ipso facto, become part of Babylon the Great.
Now it is true, 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, as we just suggested, a huge 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.
So long as the poor of the world are unable to see the distinction between the Christ of the American New World Order System and the Christ of the Bible, God's character will be impugned; there is a reason, after all, why Jesus said:
"My name is blasphemed among the heathen (i.e., unbelievers) because of you." (Romans 2:24)
Oh, that somewhere along the line, my brother - whom I dearly, dearly love - would break off his relationship with today's fallen Church and stand up for the truth!! Oh, that my brother would seize the pulpit at New Hope Christian Fellowship and shout out this truth about America; oh, that my brother would use his venue downtown to do the same.
