“If a community can produce a subculture of righteous people, and if they involve themselves within the city, trying to change it, then there is hope for that community. But if the righteous are only isolated individuals who avoid or are barred from being involved in the affairs of the city, there is no hope. One can only extricate them and condemn the rest…
…Perhaps it takes a critical mass to generate an alternative way of living, isolated individuals cannot…
…The sin of Sodom was not just that some people acted wickedly (people do that everywhere), but that wickedness became public policy, endorsed and approved by the authorities.”
~Etz Hayim commentary.
When G-d’s Spirit began to work in me in my home and community, the enemies of G-d started to work the opposite and contrive a way to get me out of the way and isolate me.
As I’ve said before, there are those who work in darkness who try to help the righteous, but equally and more so are there those who walk in darkness and endeavor to hurt the righteous by any means necessary; as cruel and spitefully as possible whenever possible, of which there are many opportunities, for they need not but lie in wait and rush ahead, and repeat the same action again and again…It is how devils in old testament times would hurt and kill prophets, ever hoping to turn them from righteousness unto joining the mob, if granted opportunity by the prophet’s own choice and free will.
It is hard to remain loyal to G-d and righteous in deed when fallen and warring with these devils, being often devilish thine own self, justified only by an allegiance to G-d known only by fellow brethren and between the disciple and G-d alone.
This, as I see it, is the very heart and lifeline of Zionism.
Not to my surprise many high officials and law enforcement agents in this realm are evil minded and work in allegiance to a long suffering, deeply rooted, anti-Semite evil in the midst of Zion. As prevailing as the myst in Her that covers the eyes and understandings of the goyim within Her borders who have made themselves the law.
You know the old woman, who swallowed the fly, the spider and everything else she might? Well…this is her…
“…the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion…”
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How evrything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
The devil has controlled my life in many ways in the past so many years, and has used the opportunity to steal works, thwart my purposes and stymie the Spirit in me again and again, by isolating me, forcing me to live among the unclean and otherwise minded.
It is because of wickedness in high places that he was permitted to do so, and because of greed in the inhabitants of Zion, and the world, who have no allegiance to G-d but only to a flag and filthy pride unfit for service to itself or its Maker. It is the dragon of humanism demanding its way, and men unfit to serve as dogs guarding the flock of the L-RD, seeking to profit themselves at Zion and G-d’s expense.
Time and time again, I have had my computer memory purged and blamed upon electricity outages, etc., and all manner of treachery has been used to thwart this work. Hence, a lot of it is marred by the intrusions of my enemy, but then a lot of it has been made all the more miraculous and convincing because of the same. G-d works in mysterious ways indeed.
Therefore did Messiah witness:
Mat 5:44 Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Much of what I could tell you I’ve endured would seem preposterous and impossible. Nevertheless, anyone who knows what it is to suffer the cunning deceptions and intentions of the devil would know of a matter of personal experience that what I would witness to was truth unwavering.
Be that as it may, I will spare my readers the deluge, as I have made up in my mind and heart to forgive all that was done unto me, and therefore its telling is of no use to you nor I.
What is useful and instructive, besides the above forgiveness imparted, is that we realize what has led many astray and is hindering us to this day from meeting many a grand and simple expectation of our everyday lives and fulfillment of promise and vow.
I believe in the destiny of Massachusetts as the seat of the world’s soul. But the more she became corrupt and sought to escape her own corruptions, by warring with the more corrupt seeking to protect the more innocent, the more entangled in a mess inextricably impossible to escape she became. So that she had to become ever more accommodating of those who deserve very little if any consideration whatsoever.
What this fed is a fire known as the Grand Delusion.
2Th 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
And it came to pass that when I, Mormon, saw their lamentation and their mourning and their sorrow before the Lord, my heart did begin to rejoice within me, knowing the mercies and the long-suffering of the Lord, therefore supposing that he would be merciful unto them that they would again become a righteous people.
But behold this, my joy, was vain, for their sorrowing was not unto repentance, because of the goodness of God; but it was rather the sorrowing of the damned, because the Lord would not always suffer them to take happiness in sin.
Instead of as the above Torah lesson would have us, a minority has formed a klan that controls the drama and mayhem of the American Dream by isolating and separating prophets and men of G-d, controlling their lives inasmuch as they are able through a vast web of contrivances none of which are holy in intention or liberality of provision, instead producing a fictitious insult for the world to behold through various media device and distraction. From the Church Bulletin board to the daily paper and television news, and on to the Hollywood theatre offerings and Internet, etc.
As I’ve said, in the past, the web is vast.
All of it birthed by some of the bitterest roots, who have spent their days in probation, playing cat and mouse, pig and dog games of the most depraved manner of psychological warfare.
Acts 8: 23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
The people who dress and build the tombs of the latter-day prophets are they who create your modern day American Evil.
If not for the few, and their numbers grow fewer everyday, righteous, long suffering Saints, protected by Sovereign Grace, we might never experience any rewarding, uplifting, encouraging, hopeful, edifying works in the realms of art and media at all.
It is a hopeful sign that we have a great deal of such works to witness to, though their ultimate harvest be none to convincing, it were the moments that produced treasures in heaven that mattered.
But as the devil has his willing minions of destructive workers willing destruction and mayhem, so too has G-d His faithful Saints, witnesses and combatants, standing faithful in Him, fighting against the tide of an unholy war desiring to overtake the hearts of the children of men and convince them to violence only; and thanks to the same, convincing rather to steadfast love and enlightenment as an alternative to despair or joining the enemy all the friends of G-d.
What has also been long entrenched in this realm of the new holy land, is an awful pride and hateful spite, upheld and protected more oft than not by the authorities and law enforcement agents reaping wages by the same unholy duty, bent on gain and upon their own vicious natures.
Morm. 4: 5 But, behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is by the wicked that the wicked are punished; for it is the wicked that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed.
For, behold, I say unto you that Zion shall flourish, and the glory of the Lord shall be upon her;
And she shall be an ensign unto the people, and there shall come unto her out of every nation under heaven.
And the day shall come when the nations of the earth shall tremble because of her, and shall fear because of her terrible ones. The Lord hath spoken it. Amen.
Tares produce a pride based upon a mostly false national history, that has sold and prospered for ages and generations, during which many prophets have perished, and people of G-d have been murdered, tortured, and abused both in secret and openly, though the tale is told as though it were due comeuppance for pretended offences.
And the murderers are rewarded and advance in a secret society hellbent that keeps the American Dream alive at the expense of her reality and true glory.
Nevertheless, we have made many sane advances, if they may be called such, the majority has ever been leading her backward in an insane game, so that their instances are all the more miraculous to those who bring them to pass, as to those who may or would benefit from the same.
For the more part, we no longer live or die for G-d, with any real united purpose whatsoever except that of pride and rebellion which are terrible sins to die in.
This Beast must needs be bridled and was in no way prepared to be so, hence the prolonged birth pangs and confusion, of something much akin to a unwanted Messianic Age.
Mob rule and mob disobedience that sprang from an ignoble notion of civic disobedience has always incited violent backlash and necessary curbing of misbehaviour inappropriate and vain, which often led to not but more of the same, until at the last, much of America has become the third world nation in need of aide that we as one united always boasted of being able to afford others, perhaps proving that we never so much as intended such in the first place?
Pride and Spite has reaped a Valley of Indecision filled up to the brim with bitter souls willing to survive by any means necessary, and every and very mean means are.
Mob Rule is the harvest of social democracy.
Many men and women in seats of judgment seem no more than ill-natured, ill-humored, calloused beasts, with hearts greedy. Their reasoning’s like unto selfish, stubborn, prideful tombs of want; as monolithic as they are merciful and understanding; another benefit of widespread lawlessness. For every action and judgment, there is and equal and opposite reaction.
Parents and schoolmasters under this sort of government become desperately indisposed, if not wholly unable to share righteous judgment and truth with their children, often inciting with belligerent, guileful kindness unto folly most damnable, seven times as unavoidable.
This is an generation which saith, let G-d be bankrupt and ridiculous and the people who have fed themselves fatly upon Him and the sheep of His pasture become ever more fat until at the last their arteries clog and they maynt gasp for smoke.
"As creeping ivy…hides the ruins that it feeds upon." ~William Cowper, The Progress of Error, 1782
The insanity of what we are experiencing as a whole is bitterness indeed. Mercy and charity would solve all and reap a harvest of salvation for many, if there was not such an terrible pride involved. Instead people are being bought off one by one and the wicked are being strengthened to impose the devil’s will upon all mankind.
Mic 7:3 That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.
And everyone not “in the know” is endeavoring to survive by their own sense of justice instead of that which is right. Because people have been able to survive for a long time does not make them right, much less just.
G-d loves us all. He and we know full well what led to mankind’s downfall and the price of redemption is still the same. No one need lie nor feel they are “lost” when they may be found. It is our solemn duty to ensure that the following generation does not fall in the same way preceding generations fell.
Because it does not aide either/or.
We need to stop trying to get ahead or out of a hole by any means necessary and work with a united purpose to save all or as many as are willing to be part of that.
There is a Way provided and it is Torah and we must choose It or perish trying to do otherwise.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
This in no wise means the party is over, there shall be no fun until the end of time…It may be considered precisely the opposite, we may regain an understanding of what fun is and what it is to be alive and experience all the gifts and gladness life may offer the righteous whether beleaguered with sins or new born in Messiah, washed clean in the Word.
It is the Word of Messiah, not the blood that cleanses from all sin.
Sacrifice is yet necessary for our survival and His righteousness, but it was never intended to make us what we have become; unthankful, self-driven, faithless beasts of more than burden but terrible trouble.
God Accuses Israel
Hear the word of the L-rd, O people of Israel;
for the L-rd has an indictment against the inhabitants of the land.
There is no faithfulness or loyalty,
and no knowledge of G-d in the land.
Swearing, lying, and murder,
and stealing and adultery break out;
bloodshed follows bloodshed.
Therefore the land mourns,
and all who live in it languish;
together with the wild animals
and the birds of the air,
even the fish of the sea are perishing.
Yet let no one contend,
and let none accuse,
for with you is my contention, O priest.
You shall stumble by day;
the prophet also shall stumble with you by night,
and I will destroy your mother.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your G-d,
I also will forget your children.
The more they increased,
the more they sinned against me;
they changed their glory into shame.
They feed on the sin of my people;
they are greedy for their iniquity.
And it shall be like people, like priest;
I will punish them for their ways,
and repay them for their deeds.
They shall eat, but not be satisfied;
they shall play the whore, but not multiply;
because they have forsaken the L-rd
to devote themselves to whoredom.
